Pastor E. A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God spoke to his members on "The Everlasting Arms" at RCCG May 2023 Holy Ghost Service, 6 May, 2023.
According to him, We can look at the everlasting arm of God from the point of view of the meaning of long hands. When we talk of involvement, we ask you, "have you a hand in the matter?" That's a way of saying, "are you involved?" So we could look at this topic from the angle of Divine involvement. We could look at it from the angle of the Lord saying, "he will thrust out the enemy before you and ask you to destroy them." That could cause us to look at the fact that one part of God is the Lamb, the other part is the Lion.
He then revealed that the Bible did not teach we Christians to just be gentle as a dove. He said that the major problem with us Christians is, we only remember that part that says, "Be gentle as a dove." We seem to forget that when it says, "no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper," it went on to say, "every tongue that shall rise up against you THOU shall condemn." We just think that we are to be doves - just little doves, allow every dick and Harry to match over our heads. That's not what the Bible teaches."
He further said, "When I was teaching those of you who were in the school of disciples - when I was the teacher, I said, what will you do if you came out at night and you remove your bed cover and you see a very poisonous snake lying there? Well, you're to be as gentle as a dove now? So you will say to snake, "hey, thou beautiful creature of God, keep on sleeping and if you don't mind I will just lie down quietly beside you." Is that what you will do?
