"Not Everyone Wants To Be Free" - Pastor Adeboye

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has said that not everyone want to be healed or be freed. According to him, many preferred to be in perpetual bondage rather than to be healed or freed.

Pastor Adeboye made this disclosure at the special holy ghost night of the Redeemed Christian church of God on Friday, 5th March, 2021 and which also coincided with his 79th anniversary birthday celebration.

With the topic: I WILL LIFT UP MY EYES, the revered man of God, quoting copiously from Psalm 121: 1-2 , said "You must know where to get that help to be free"

Citing the case of the man by the pool of Bethesda who had been in bondage for thirty eight years- (John 5: 2-9) , Pastor Adeboye said if the man had wanted to be free he would have been free before then; but he was not prepared to be free. To a simple question of whether he wants to be free, he was evasive.

Pastor Adeboye said many are like the man by the pool of Bethesda. They knew they were in bondage but could not muster the courage to say they needed to be set free. "They love darkness rather than light" (John 3:19).

Daddy Adeboye posited that the moment we realized where to get help from, our path to freedom has been carved. The moment we realized who to look up to for help, our path to freedom has been laid.

David, according to Pastor Adeboye, knows where to get help from. That was why he said in Psalm 121: 1-2 that, " I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from whence comes my help. My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.

Laying emphasis on the word "I" in the text, Daddy Adeboye said wanting to be free is a personal thing. David realized this when he said: "I will lift up my eyes to the hills....."

To be truly free, according to Pastor Adeboye, " you must pray when it is time to pray with everything inside you". You must be zealous. You must be desperate for help like the paralytic man that was brought to be healed by four men through the roof top ( Mark 2:1-12). And say boldly like Jacob, " I will not let you go until you bless me".
