“Since you described the president’s letter as a personal one, I will also personally reply him, but I want you to let him know that there will be peace in the country when the fire of God falls from heaven,” he said.
“The beginning of the end of violence in this country is now. Whether the enemies like it or not, there will be peace in Nigeria and the enemies of this country will be put to shame. I didn’t want to say this before, but within one week God will expose them and this country will sing a new song and will prosper.
“Everybody in this world has a purpose and destiny, and when God releases his fire, cases of insecurity in the country will cease”. He urged Nigerians to pray and seek the face of God for His mercy to “release His fire on the country”.
Adeboye who had desired from God a rare birthday gift of 70,000 babies within the church this year and 700,000 new converts also used the occasion to announce the birth of 15 babies within two days of the special Holy Ghost service.
