Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer World-wide of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has prophesied that proverbial "significant goliaths will fall" this year.
He did not explain who the goliaths are.
Mr. Adeboye, noted for his careful choice of words, reeled out his 2018 prophecies for individuals, Nigeria, and the world at the church's Cross-Over Service held at its Redemption Camp and watched in over 198 countries, where the church has branches.
"I have to put it carefully so I am not misunderstood" he said as he prophesied that, "Many people will wake up to realise that their future is not in the hand of any government and as a result a lot of lost ground will be reclaimed."
Continuing the prophecies for individuals, he said "Erstwhile stubborn mountains will move; while saboteurs who pretend to be friends will be disgraced and displaced.
The international prophecies are as follows: · This year there will be less fire outbreaks but there will be more floods. · There will be misunderstandings amongst nation but no major wars. · There is need for prayers against assassination attempts globally. There will be record breaking temperatures both high and low. · There will be a handful of breakthroughs, both scientific and medical. · Global warming, sexual perversion and others signal the countdown to the end.
The prophecies came towards the end of his ministration, which centred on "Enforcing your Victory."
Expressing his displeasure about passive attitude to prophecies and God's promises, he challenged members of the church, and Christians in general, to possess their victories and live them with boldness and thanksgiving.
"It is one thing to be victorious and another thing to possess it," he stressed, citing the example of the hen that still remained at the spot where it had been tied for days even when the rope was cut, until someone kicked it to make it move away.
