The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Friday, May 6 declared that heaven was for soul winners and not for Christians who did not.
Adeboye revealed this at the church’s headquarters during the monthly Holy Ghost Service.
Speaking on the topic, ‘Open Doors,’ he noted that every believer was given the responsibility to bear fruit.
He added that many Christians would be in shock after their deaths when they miss heaven.
Emphasizing the topic, the cleric revealed he knew a monarch who was over 80 years old and was close to his grave. He told the monarch that if he did not win souls, he would not enter heaven.
“When he called me and said he was ready to go home to meet with God. He said there was nothing left for him to do again in the world. He used to call me E. A. because we were quite close.
Then I told him he was not going anywhere. I said if he fails to win souls to God’s kingdom he may not enter heaven. He was shocked. Eventually, he sprang into action. He asked me to accompany him to some of his friends.
This happened several years ago. We got to the place and he said he had come to share the gospel with them. They gave him an audience. He was able to preach and he won his first soul.”
Additionally, he said people who live close to the church have no excuse not to attend services. This exempts those who lived outside the country.
Hence, the 80-year-old Adeboye urged RCCG members to make efforts to attend the monthly Holy Ghost service expressing his observation that many preferred to watch the programme on TV rather than being present physically.
