I once consulted juju men for protection- Pastor Enoch Adeboye

by Church Times

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor Enoch Adeboye has recounted how he once consulted juju men for protection in his younger days when he was yet to know the Lord.

Adeboye recounted the experience at the church’s monthly Thanksgiving Service which held at its Redemption Avenue, Ebute Metta, Lagos headquarters on September 1

The RCCG pastor who devoted the programme to pray for men in military and paramilitary services said it will be foolhardy for any man to place his protection on mortal man noting however that military personnel are doing a great job.

On his experience with the juju men, he said, “I was making it as a young man and lecturer in the university. I had a car and had a modest house in the village. So my people felt there was no need for me to fortify myself. It was the fortification that took me to a strong man in Oshogbo.

“The juju man I met asked me to bring a live goat and I needed to drag the goat from the market to his place. I did. He ended up giving me three charms. He asked me to place one inside the booth of the car, one on the steering and another under the seat of the car. The one under the seat was to ensure I disappear in case of a fatal accident with the car while the one at the booth and the steering were meant to prevent my vehicle from having collision with other vehicles.”

But the charm failed. Adeboye said, “the first week that I used the charm I had about three collisions with other vehicles and that discouraged me. I took the charms and threw them into the lagoon.” he said.

But that did not stop him from making further inquiry for a juju man that could protect him. He was introduced to another who asked him what kind of protection he wanted. Adeboye said, “I told him I wanted protection from witches in the village because I had been told never to step into the village. The herbalist then asked which of the villages Adeboye came from. And he told him. Surprisingly he said to Adeboye “if I was from the village I mentioned that I should just don’t bother myself about going home. That my village witches and wizard are first class.”

The failure of the juju men to help Adeboye made it clear that there was no man that could ever protect another man. He noted that since he came to know the Lord he has enjoyed God’s protection.

While calling for prayers for men of the Force, he said, “We can only pray for them and ask God to help them in the job of securing lives and property. They need our prayers and not criticism. But we must appreciate that God is the ultimate protector. He is the only one that can secure us from seen and unseen forces. It is better you allow God to be your body guard.”

He recounted the testimony of a lady who was always walking around during the second world war at the risk of the bombs that were flying everywhere saying, “the lady while reacting to people’s concern for her life said to the people that she served a God that does not sleep not slumber. She said if God does not sleep because of me and he does not get tired because of me, why do we then worry ourselves and put our trust in mortal man.”

The thanksgiving service was specially put together to intercede for men in security services. He took time to pray for them and pleaded with them to eschew anything that would bring disrepute to the country.
