Millions of worshippers, at the weekend grand finale of the annual Holy Ghost Congress of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), roared in disapproval as the General Overseer of the ministry, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, hinted at his possible passing.

The one-week programme ended on Saturday, with a three-in-one service, comprising anointing, communion and impartation.
Ministering on the transfer of anointing, Adeboye said he would not be too young at 73 to go back to his Creator. He would be 74 next March.
He was explaining why the transferred anointing is always more potent than the index case, using Moses and Elijah as examples.

Using the scripture, Adeboye added that where Moses, who got anointing fire directly from God failed, Joshua, who got his fire from Moses, succeeded.
He also pointed out that while Elijah, who got his anointing directly from God performed only seven miracles, Elisha, who got his anointing from Elijah when God was taking him away, performed 14 miracles.

Adeboye equally explained that the beneficiaries got the transferred anointing when their masters were about passing away.
He said he would anoint his wife and other very senior pastors who, in turn, would anoint other pastors, from where the worshippers would experience their own anointing fire.

After the explanation, he looked at the congregation and said “you may be wondering if I am about to go. Will it be too early for a 73-year-old man to die? If I go now, who will say it is too early?”
At this point, the worshippers, who were at the beginning rejecting his passing in a murmur, roared their disapproval loudly from all the four corners of the new auditorium.

Smiling, Adeboye added: “I am not too young to die.” Again, the crowd disapproved with a din.
He later calmed everyone down, saying “okay, it is not now (I’m not dying now),” to which the crowd roared a thunderous “amen.”
The service at the 3km-by-3km new auditorium was the first ever. When completed, it would be the largest worship auditorium in Africa.

At the Sunday thanksgiving service for the successful completion of the congress, tagged “Floodgates of Heaven,” Adeboye also announced the birth of additional two babies Saturday midnight, bringing the total birth at the one-week programmed to 47 babies, 25 boys and 22 girls.

In attendance at the Friday Holy Ghost service were Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and his wife, Dolapo; Governors Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State, Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos and his wife; wife of Kogi deputy governor, Speaker of Ekiti House of Assembly, Chief Justices of South Africa and Gambia, who are pastors in the ministry, among others.
