The overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye was last in the news after he narrated an encounter that prevented him from hearing the voice of God.
According to Pastor Adeboye, he used to hear the voice of God immediately after he got born again and he was an interpreter for the then general overseer.
He explained that he got so full of himself to an extent that he felt pompous after another man of God called him to the pulpit to interpret for him. Adeboye added that he felt so angry within him for interpreting for another pastor who was not his general overseer.
He said: ” something happened that made him stop communicating with me. I used to be an interpreter to the general overseer or general superintendent like we call it those days. My father in the Lord then just took a special interest in my interpretation. When other pastors in the church then realised that the general overseer liked my interpretation, they stopped calling me to interpret for them and left me alone for the general overseer.
“Almost immediately after I got born again, God started speaking to me, I don’t do anything without his guidance or approval. He tells me the road to ply in Lagos so that I can bypass hold up, most of you here know how terrible Lagos traffic is. Fortunately for me, I don’t experience it because God knows a better route.
“I became full of myself and started bouncing around as interpreter to the general overseer but an incident happened one day.We had a program and we invited a guest minister to preach. He made a mistake that day, you may be surprised at my definition of a mistake. The mistake was that he asked me to interpret for himself. I was really angry in my spirit but I couldn’t object because it was too late.
“I stood up and interpreted for him but in my heart, I was murmuring, I said ‘How could you call me a whole interpreter to the general overseer to interpret for you’. Only if he knew what was in my mind, he would have called another person to interpret that very day.
“At the end of the program, I was on my way home and God spoke, he said ‘Son, you are now too big to interpret to a man of God other than the general overseer”. After the conversation, God stopped speaking to me, I didn’t hear His voice again. “I suffered, that whole period was like hell, I became a victim of the traffic in Lagos.”
