To toast of the ongoing annual convention, the Holy Ghost Service Nigerians go to the Redemption Camp of The Redeemed Christian Church of Christ, as they are expected to take advantage of the public holi-days to attend.
As a result of the huge crowd expected at the Camp today, a new rule was announced on Wednesday night to the effect that vehicles may not be allowed to approach the Arena instead they will directed to the various car parks around the camp from where parti-cipants will be transported to the venue by special buses designed for that purpose.The Holy Ghost service which holds every first Friday of every month is the star attraction of all RCCG pro-grammes because it is always a power packed session with diverse miracle and unusual ministrations.
“We know fully well that the traffic situation along the Lagos-Baden Expressway is usually very busy during this period and there is the dire need to appeal to the conscience of motorists on the road adhere strictly to instructions from the various controllers on the expressway,” one of the traffic managers on the road told our reporter.
According to him, everybody coming from Lagos or the opposite direction would be directed to properly designate car parks from where they would take a bus to the arena for the programmed, appealing that such persons should be mindful of the feelings of other road users who are not coming to the camp.
The new rule had become necessary because of the unprecedented vehicles already within the camp causing heavy traffic within the camp, just as the announcer also urged all participants who had built ‘empires’ within the auditorium denying new arrivals access to seats to dismantle immediately.
Those were the indications that today’s service would attract a mammoth crowd especially from Lagos and its environs. In addition to that, the security department as well as the transport division which have been put on high alert to avert any disruption of the peace.
Similarly, the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye had again warned participants to stay way from the Redemption Camp if they are not ready to get serious with the ongoing move of God. According to him, this year’s convention is not for jokers whose stock in trade is to come to the camp to wile away time and cause distraction to others who are determined to worship God in truth and in Spirit.
He warned such participants, who are already in the camp to pack their bags and baggage and leave, stressing that only those who are ready for, what he called ‘heavy stuff’ that should remain.
As at the Wednesday, Daddy G.O. as he fondly called by his members and numerous spiritual children across the globe has focused his ministration on true salvation, sanctification and the need for all true children of God to live holy lives, saying that without holiness nobody can see the Lord.
The first message titled, ‘The Saviour’ was followed by another heavy stuff titled ‘The Sanctifier’ and they were reminders that we must all leave the life of Jesus, the savior and sanctifier.
He maintained that sanctification is another grace of God by which our souls are progressively and completely cleansed. This is the second accompli-shment of the grace which through our faith in the Blood of Jesus Christ is wrought after we have been justified and free from our sins or regene-rated
By Wednesday night, Daddy G.O. announced to the large crowd of worsh-ippers that the number of babies born since the commencement of the annual convention has risen to 34 —17 boys and 17 girls.
