“WHY WASTE YOUR ENERGY WHEN YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING?” PASTOR ADEBOYE SHARES HIS REPLY TO THOSE WHO PRESSURE HIM TO REPLY CRITICS
“I ALWAYS SHAKE MY HEAD IN SORROW WHEN SOMEONE WHO HAD BEEN A PASTOR IN THE REDEEMED CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF GOD SAYS HE HAS A VISION TO GO AND START HIS OWN MINISTRY”
THE ONE WHO CAN GET A DOUBLE PORTION OF THE ANOINTING IS SOMEONE WHO IS FAITHFUL TO THE FATHER TO THE END
THE ONE WHO CAN GET A DOUBLE PORTION OF THE ANOINTING IS SOMEONE WHO IS SINGLE MINDED AND FOCUSED JUST LIKE ELISHA
THE DOUBLE PORTION OF ANOINTING YOU ARE GETTING IS NOT THAT OF ELIJAH, BUT THE ANOINTING ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, ALL THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE GENUINELY MY CHILDREN, IT SHALL BE WELL WITH YOU
Pastor E. A. Adeboye on “DOUBLE PORTION” || Redeemed Christian Church of God HOLY GHOST CONGRESS 2022 || December 9th 2022
Day 5, Evening Session || Part D
Now comes the question, “Who can get the double portion of the anointing?”
The double portion you’re getting tonight is not that of Elijah, but a double portion of the anointing on the Lord Jesus Christ
Who can get a double portion of the anointing?
1. Someone faithful to the Father to the end. I always shake my head in sorrow when someone who had been a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God comes to me, “God has given me a vision to go and start my own ministry.” And I say, “Yes Sir.” “And you will always remain my father.” I say, “Yes Sir, Congratulations Sir. May I shake hands with a new G. O.” “Faithful to the end,” that is what Revelation 2:10 says.
2. Someone who is single minded and focused. Elisha didn’t say, “give me this and then this” no, just one thing. It has to be somebody who is focused. He knew what he wanted. People have asked me again and again, when all manners of people begin to criticize and some of them even claim to be prophets. They say, “Daddy but you know the truth about this matter why don’t you talk?” Why waste your energy when you know where you are going? The elders have a say – there is this vegetable they call bitter leaf; very bitter and that is why they call it bitter leaf. There is another one that is called sugar cane. The elders have a say; they say, “The same rain that fell on bitter leaf is the one that fell on sugar cane.” Some people are made to be bitter; some are made to be sweet. Which one is your choice?
Someone said to me, “what I don’t like about you … I like your sermons but what I don’t like about you is when you begin to say “there is someone here” and you are always saying good things.”
I asked for an example.
He said I said there is someone here who will never weep again.
“What do you want me to say?” I asked; I can only say what God asked me to say.
– For the rest of your life, you won’t know sorrow.
I told him, “You go ahead, go and be prophesying death and destruction. That’s not the one God gave me. I can only say what he says.”
– In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, all of those of you who are genuinely my children, it shall be well with you.
More than anything else, the one who is going to get the double portion must be focused. He knows what he wants and will do whatever it takes to get it.
