The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said that the Bible is not against self defence, speaking in the light of recent attacks on Christians in the country.

He also called for immediate stoppage of the mindless attacks and massacre of Christians in the country,

Pastor Adeboye said that Christians would respond ‘fire for fire’ to any move by the devil from now on.

According to him, The Bible does not prevent Christians from defending themselves against such premeditated attacks.

He also said that those who commit acts of blasphemy against the Lord Jesus Christ will be served a taste of fire from above.

Adeboye spoke at the July 2022 Holy Ghost Service held from Friday night to the early hours of Saturday.

“There are certain things television cannot transmit. Not at all. Glory be to God for television that can transmit across the world. Glory be to God. But when the Almighty God knows that it is out of laziness that you sat back at home, you will be hearing the testimonies of those who were present,” he said.

“There’s something called corporate anointing. The Bible says fire begets fire. There are certain things you get because you are there…

“Oh! Some jokers said churches should not open for three months. Who is your commander? God or Boko Haram? Let the devil try any nonsense, from now on, it is going to be fire for fire!

“I understand that one funny fellow said some people were calling on Ogun because Jesus didn’t answer them. Well, for the one who said that there’s a saying that the mouth that the snail used to blaspheme God, that mouth will kiss the ground.

“From now on, anybody who dares blaspheme Jesus Christ will taste the fire of the Almighty God. Every enemy of the church, as far as Jesus is a consuming fire, if they don’t repent, the fire of God will consume them.

“I don’t want to say much because I know whatever I say, some people may want to twist it. I have searched the Bible from cover to cover and there is nowhere where God said a child of God cannot defend himself. If you find the place, let me know.

“He said that if they slap you on the right cheek turn left, He said that one. If they now slap the left what did he say? When God is silent, do you know the meaning of that, it simply means over to you.

“I am only talking to my children. Only my children come to the Holy Ghost Service.”
