Pastor Richard Adeboye, the pastor in charge of The Redeemed Christians Church of God (RCCG) Region 12, has told Nigerians that the country’s current problem will soon be a thing of the past.
There would be a new dawn in Nigeria in 2023, according to Pastor Adeboye, who provided the guarantee while speaking with newsmen at a Praise Night dubbed “Halleluyah Mega Praise Concert Season 1,” organized by the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Ogun Province 4 Headquarters, Simawa, Ogun state.
The man of God stressed the significance of the praise night by saying it was the church’s contribution to asking for God’s help in advance of the new year.
Adeboye said, “Very soon, there is going to be a new dawn. There is going to be a new Nigeria. The Lord is in control.
“Very soon, our storm in Nigeria will be over and all will be well in Jesus name.
“When you know how to praise God in struggles and difficulties, God will come down and every thing will be over. Very soon, our cloud will be over in Jesus name.
“God is in control and very soon, our storm will be over. The cloud will be over.”
Prior to his remarks, Pastor Adekunle Felix Kumapayi, Provincial Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Ogun Province 4, Simawa, Ogun State, urged Nigerians to seek God’s face through praise and worship in order to overcome the many issues the country is now dealing with.
Pastor Kumapayi said having prayed and fasted, it was important to also turn to God in prayer and worship to ask for divine guidance.
The cleric compared Israel’s economic and security predicament to Nigeria’s.
He argued that both internal and external obstacles impeding the nation’s progress could be overcome only by God.
In his remarks on the general elections in 2023, Pastor Kumapayi gave the Nigerian people the assurance that the year would be one of testimony and that God would intervene on their behalf to select a leader who would be sympathetic to their plight.
He urged members of the Christian community to vote for trustworthy candidates in the next elections and to obtain their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) so they can actively engage in the nation’s politics.
He said, “The situation of Nigeria is just like what happened in the Biblical Israel. Israel was facing all kinds of problems, surrounded by powerful enemies. They were helpless.
“But in Nigeria, we have prayed, we have fasted nothing has happened, then, we decided to praise God. He will fight for us and defeat all our enemies.
“We believe that after today, things will never remain the same again in Nigeria. 2023 will be year of testimony. God will rise on our behalf and fight against our enemies.”
