Anointing for Victory by Pastor E.A Adeboye


Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG)
highlighted the three types of external enemies portrayed in a Bible passage on King David’s experience; and the need to overcome them with the anointing of God. 

He likened the enemies to the lion, the bear and Goliath.

The lion, he explained, kills by choking its prey, and that in the case of humans it could be someone in superior position or influence who wants to suppress you, frustrate you to death or kill opportunities or people who are to enhance your emergence or growth. He cited the example of Pharaoh, who ordered all male Israeli babies killed because a leader was to emerge among them.

But he had a solution for that. “There is anointing from God to take care of lions.”
The bear hugs to kill, (from which we got the term “bear hug,”) and that he said makes it very dangerous enemy because it comes pretending to be a friend.

According to him, the bear therefore represents people who get close to you, smile at you, pretending to love so as to get close enough to destroy you.
For those people too, he said there is an anointing to take care of them.

He gave a chilling testimony of how one of his three close friends earlier in his ministry hated him so bitterly he didn’t want him to be the General Overseer after the death of the founder of the church.

“It was way back in 1980, when one of the three was getting married. When I got there, the other friend welcomed me warmly and was doing everything to please me with drinks, food and other offers.

“But God spoke and I heard Him clearly. ‘He is your enemy!’

“I was shocked because I had exposed myself too much to that man.

“When we met later, I told my friends God’s message but the man denied being an enemy. That was in June, 1980.
 In December, we met again to discuss the church after the demise of the founder, and there the man bared his teeth: ‘From the day you came to this church I hated you,’ he confessed.

“The Goliath is the enemy who has insight into your destiny but vows that you will not get there. He could be a boss, a colleague or even an opponent, Pastor Adeboye said, explaining that what was at stake in the David and Goliath fight was the kingdom of Israel, which David had be anointed to rule.”

He assured that with the right relationship with God and His anointing Goliaths too have no chance to destroy people. “Anyone who says you will not reach your goal will fail, in the name of Jesus,” he said, singing the song ‘I know my Redeemer liveth’, to buttress his point.
