Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, celebrated his 82nd birthday at the Redemption Camp in Ogun State, reflecting on a moment when he narrowly escaped death and crediting his survival to God’s grace.


Recalling a past incident, he highlighted the miraculous intervention that spared his life, emphasizing the profound impact of God’s protection during challenging times.


The congregation joined in celebrating his milestone, acknowledging the remarkable journey of faith and resilience.


“Somehow we passed,” he said, noting that it was a miracle that they escaped unhurt in the incident, which left both him and his driver shaking.


Adeboye said the escape amazed his driver that all the way to Ilorin, all he was repeating was ‘wonderful.’


“That I’m alive today is because His name is called wonderful,” he said, and prayed that God would be wonderful in the lives of the people.


Adeboye appreciated the church members for celebrating him, praying that none of them would die young, and that they would be greater than him.


He said that his 82nd birthday anniversary also marked the 38th anniversary of the monthly Special Holy Ghost Service organised by the church.


Adeboye thanked God for the lives that had been touched through the programme.


The cleric, at the event, preached on the theme of the Holy Ghost Service – On Eagles Wings.


Preaching from Exodus Chapter 19, he said, “When God hears and takes notice of a person, the life of such a person changes for better. God can grab you from the lowest point on earth and put you on the throne.”


According to him, when one’s case is beyond any human assistance, the God who knows will send help.


The cleric said that all God required was faith and holiness, and He was able to give sweatless victory.


He prayed that God would hear the cries of the people, carry them on eagle’s wings and deliver them totally like He did for the children of Israel.
