Revered clergyman, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has advised men of God not to fight women but run when they threaten to deal with them.
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, gave this advice at a special online service on Sunday, January 9th.
To buttress his point Pastor Adeboye cited the classical Biblical case of Elijah and Jezebel.
“ Elijah arrived at Jezreel, sat down in his house and was enjoying the victories that had happened. He’d just called down fire from heaven. He’d prophesied and prayed and there was rain for the first time in three years. He’d brought about national revival. He’d outrun the chariot of the King.
He was happy but then a message came from the First Lady of the land‘I heard what you did on Mount Carmel, I swear to you by my gods by this time tomorrow, you’ll be like one of the prophets that you killed’. Elijah the great man of God ran, the man who dared 450 prophets ran from a woman.
I know a lot of people have said how could that be? Elijah was very wise. I’ve told you men of God again and again, do n’t fight a woman.
However, run, If a woman says she’s going to deal with you. However, you’ll be alive to fight tomorrow, If you learn to run today. The African elders have a saying “ the one who knows when to fight and when to run is the one they call the champion”. You must know when to fight and when to run.
When Jezebel says “ I’m coming for you” Elijah did the right thing. He ran”.
