Pastor E. A. Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has revealed how God used him to heal the son of his ex-girlfriend who was born crippled.
Adeboye, during a sermon in his church, admitted that he lived a rough life while he was still an unbeliever, stressing that he was unable to count his girlfriends.
According to Adeboye, who is one of the most reverenced Christian clergymen in Nigeria, one of his ex-girlfriends who unfortunately gave birth to a cripple, was shocked to see him as a pastor when she came to church seeking for a spiritual solution to her son’s health crisis.
The renowned clergy stated that though the woman could not believe in his new life, the son was healed after a simple prayer.
He said, “I have shared with you before my testimony that before I became a Christian I was rotten, I mean very rotten. I had everything needed to be rotten. I was a sportsman, I was a cameraman, I also had one or two things.
“I ended up having so many girlfriends I couldn’t remember the number. But there was a particular one that we did everything together, and I have always told you that what we did together is none of your business.
“But after some time she went her way and I went my way. I was transferred to the University of Ilorin and after some time her own husband was transferred to Ilorin, they had given birth to a child that was born lame.
“So when they arrived in Ilorin, I was lecturing in Ilorin and I was also pastoring our small church in Ilorin. Someone told her that there is a pastor that God is performing miracles through him, take this child to him.
“If he prays for this child the child will walk. She came to the Mission house and she asked for the pastor and they brought her to my office, she opened the door and we greeted and she said “I want to see the Pastor”, I said “Yes! Can I help you?” she said “Yes! I want to see the Pastor”. I said I am the pastor and she said “You are the pastor?” I said yes! She said, “you will pray and God will answer?”.
“We prayed a simple prayer and the child walked. If any man is in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things have passed away and behold all things have become new. Alpha can take care of your past”.
