Rev. EA Adeboye, General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, addressed the Perfect Jubilee evening session on Day 5 of the 70th Assembly of Redeemed Christian Church of God.
He looked at 2 Kings 4:8–37, which tells the story of Elisha and the woman from Shunamit, and found that the marriage anniversary is a great time.
It tells us about the Shunamite woman. She wasn’t looking for a child; she had just seen a person of God pass by and wanted to bless the servant of God. As the person of God kept coming back, she decided to do more than feed him; She would build him a house. Then, by God’s command, she became pregnant. So this woman got pregnant, had a baby, and was happy about it. The devil then walked right in and killed the boy.
Then he prayed for people who had been kind to their pastors and said, “Let me stand as God’s leader and say to all of you who have been kind to your pastors, whatever money can’t buy, go get it himself with Jesus. Surname. Daddy said to tell anyone who’s listening that the devil’s plans to steal your family are ruined.
Although the devil came to this place and stole the boy, the woman got him back. She had it, lost it, then got it back. That’s what it means to be restored. In the name of Jesus you can get back everything you have lost.
