Why I Consecrated the Church of the White Robe –Adeboye

The general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Rev. Enoch Adeboye, said he dedicated a white-clothed church last September based on divine instructions.

The cleric, who recently turned 80, revealed as much on Sunday during a special sermon titled ‘Going Higher (Part 54)’.

The octogenarian had in September 2021 dedicated the Lagos Cathedral to the Love of Christ Generation Church C&S (Worldwide), founded by the Reverend Esther Ajayi amid fierce criticism from Pentecostals.

But Adeboye on Sunday said he had been directed by God to consecrate the church in Ajayi.

The octogenarian said: “In Acts 11:1-18, after Peter came out of Cornelius’ house, the great apostles came together, called him to a meeting and challenged him; “What were you doing in a Gentile’s house?” Did we hear you went there? They didn’t tell us everything they said, but they probably told him; ‘You went to a Gentile’s house because he was rich.’. Peter must have said that the spirit made him leave.

Continuing, Adeboye said, “Whether you believe it or not, I have recently received many questions from well-meaning Christians: ‘Dad GO Sir, we heard that you went to a church in white clothes to dedicate a church. You of all people?’

“I said the spirit made me leave. I obeyed the spirit.

“Years ago, I think around 1982, I was invited to a small church in white clothes, it wasn’t a big one. I went there because they said they had heard of me and that I had to come and preach. I arrived at the door, they asked me to take off my shoes, I did, because the spirit made me leave.

“There was a man in the church, an engineer, who God knew he was going to need in the construction of a campground that we hadn’t even located at the time.

“I went, I preached, he (the engineer) gave his life to Jesus. He came to the redeemed Christian Church of God and he became the engineer who started the work of the camp, he was the second in command of the Baba Adura (spiritual leader of the white-clothed church).

“I went because God said, ‘Go.’ In the things of God, don’t jump to conclusions, tread carefully.
