ed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, says he is alive because God is wonderful, recalling how he once escaped death by the whiskers.

He spoke at the Redemption Camp, off Lagos-Ibadan Expressway in Ogun, on Saturday as he clocked 82, with congregants celebrating him.

Adeboye narrated the incident, which many years ago, according to him, could have claimed his life, if not for a miraculous intervention of God.

He referred to an earlier narrative by his former driver of several accidents in which the cleric and his wife escaped death in various incidents on the way to Ilorin, Kwara.

Adeboye said that the most frightening was one in which their vehicle came face to face with a trailer that was coming at full speed on a narrow path, by a bridge which had a river by its side.

“Somehow we passed,” he said, noting that it was a miracle that they escaped unhurt in the incident, which left both him and his driver shaking.

Adeboye said the escape amazed his driver, that to Ilorin, all he was repeating was “wonderful”.

“That I’m alive today is because His name is called wonderful,” he said and prayed that God would be wonderful in the lives of the people.

Adeboye appreciated the church members for celebrating him, praying that none of them would die young and that they would be greater than him.

He said that his 82nd birthday anniversary also marked the 38th anniversary of the monthly Special Holy Ghost Service organised by the church.

Adeboye thanked God for the lives that had been touched through the programme.

The cleric, at the event, went on to preach on the theme of the Holy Ghost Service – On Eagles Wings.

Preaching from Exodus Chapter 19, he said, “When God hears and takes notice of a person, the life of such a person changes for the better.

“God can grab you from the lowest point on earth and put you on the throne.”

According to him, when one’s case is beyond any human assistance, the God who knows will send help.

The cleric said that all God required was faith and holiness, and He was able to give sweatless victory.

He prayed that God would hear the cries of the people, carry them on eagle’s wings and deliver them totally like He did for the children of Israel.
