Nigeria future great despite challenges, says Pastor Adeboye

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said that Nigeria has great future despite its present setbacks.

Pastor Adeboye has also reportedly said that Jesus Christ may return to the world on October 1st, a year that has yet to be known.

Adeboye disclosed this in a video played on Thursday during the homecoming reception ceremony organised for the immediate past Nigeria High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Sharafa Tunji-Ishola, in Abeokuta, capital of Ogun state.

The video was said to have been recorded when the General Overseer visited Tunji-Ishola during his tenure as the Nigerian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom.

Ishola, who was a former Nigeria minister of Mines and Steel, was made an ambassador by President Muhammadu Buhari in January 2021 and was recalled on 31st August 2023 by President Bola Tinubu.

Speaking during the visit, Adeboye in the recorded video eulogised the ambassador for being the first ambassador to invite him to the Nigeria house in the UK.

While explaining God’s special love for Nigeria and Nigerians, the cleric said, God was behind the scene when 1st October was chosen as Independence Day by Nigeria’s fathers of democracy.

Pastor Adeboye said, “Nigeria is a very special country. It will amaze you to know that the most amazing date in the Biblical calendar is 1st October. That is the day that is called – the feast of trumpets – and many Bible scholars believe that the most likely date that Jesus will come back again to earth will be October 1, but the year we don’t know.

“The Bible says when Jesus will come back, it will be with the sound of the trumpet and the day for the feast of trumpet is to start on October 1st.

“Now when you consider that, you will know that God was behind the scene when our fathers (some of whom are now gone) were choosing 1st October as the day for our independence and this could explain why Nigeria has gone through so much turbulence.

“Sometimes when you think by tomorrow, there will be no more Nigeria, you will wake up the next day and still find out that Nigeria is still standing.

“No matter what is happening in Nigeria today, I firmly believe that we have a glorious future. God has a very special interest in our nation Nigeria and I want you to be encouraged.”
