09 Apr FlashBack: Adeboye Urges Christians to take Prophecies Seriously as He Speaks on Late MKO, Tofa, Others
Ahead of the 2019 elections, Pastor Adeboye, recently revealed that in times past heaven had settled who would become Nigeria’s president, recounting his experience from the time of MKO and Tofa.
He said, “the Celestial had settled that late billionaire businessman, Moshood Kashimawo Abiola (MKO), would not be Nigerian president even if he won an election to the office, before he won the June 12, 1993 presidential election.”
He made this revelation known during the April edition of the monthly Holy Ghost Service.
Speaking on the theme “Stronger Than Your Enemies Part 4”, he admonished worshippers to take prophecies seriously especially when they come from genuine men of God.
While refusing to reference himself a prophet, he however acknowledged that he hears from God once in a while, adding that whatever came from the Almighty would definitely come to pass, whether those involved believed it or not.
He then relived the prophesy he got from God before the June 12, 1993 presidential election which had Abiola and Bashir Tofa as frontline candidates, as well as late Aminu Kano who was also interested in leading the country.
According to him, while the election was going to take place then, he was praying and praising God when God suddenly told him that ‘son, the winner will be the loser, the loser will be the winner and Aminu Kano is the most fortunate of them all’.
“How do you explain a prophesy like this but because it was God that spoke, it was already settled. Then, Aminu Kano died before the election could take place and you start asking the meaning of him being the most fortunate. With his death, only Abiola and Tofa contested the election, he continued.
As the then president of Pentecostal Fellowships of Nigeria, PFN, the pastors spoke about the two presidential candidates who were Muslims asking who they were to vote for. He urged everyone to vote his conscience, however, he revealed what God had told him. Some of which laughed it off saying only one winner could emerge.
At the climax of the election processes, Aminu Kano died and was well honoured. Tofa lost the election but returned to his house a free man while Abiola, the winner went to prison and you know the rest of the story”, he said.
Abiola, presidential candidate of the defunct Social Democratic Party (SDP), the presumed winner of the watershed election eventually died in prison custody on July 7, 1998, while being held for alleged treason by the military junta of late Sani Abacha and former Head of State, Abdulsalam Abubakar.
He was eventually posthumously declared the winner of the said election.
Speaking on the theme; Children of Conquerors, Adeboye also pointed out that regardless of the official stance of a negotiation between the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and terrorist Boko Haram leading to the release of the abducted female students from Dapchi, their release was purely divine.
He also prayed for the safe return of those still in the terrorists’ captivity.
Adeboye further urged the congregation that instead of praying for all enemies of the children of God to die, it would be great to have some of them, bowing to the God of the ones they want to destroy.
“How great will it be, if we have the leader of the Boko Haram, standing here (the altar), giving his life to Christ” he said.
Testimonies shared at the programme, which also witnessed an anointing segment, include; the raising of the wife of a pastor who died in her sleep, a couple giving birth to twins after about two decades of marriage, a muslim encountering Adeboye at Abuja airport and coming in contact with the Holy Spirit leading to his salvation, amongst many others.
