“It Is Wrong For Churches To Take Holy Communion In The Morning” – Pastor Adeboye Says
The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has created mixed reactions amongst christian faithfuls by saying that it is wrongful to take the holy communion in the morning.
Almost all churches in Nigeria and all over the world take the Lord Supper (Holy Communion) during service time in the day.
But Adeboye said whenever he attended other churches, he always desisted from taking the Lord’s Supper because it is wrong.
Speaking at the Holy Communion service at the just-concluded 67th convention of the church at the new auditorium at the Redemption Camp, Adeboye, who preached on the importance of the Holy Communion in line with the theme of the convention which is “And God Said,” pointed out that “the first time the Passover was taken in the Bible, it was taken in the night on the eve of the Israelites freedom from Egypt. Jesus also took it in the night with his disciples.”
According to him, whenever he is invited to some churches and they were serving Holy Communion in the day, he would decline taking by simply stating: “I am fasting.”
Adeboye posited that taking of the Holy Communion at night is symbolic, adding that “Tears may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning. The night period is symbolic. It means the end of sorrow. It means the end of suffering. It means the end of stagnation. The supper is taken in the night and not in the day.”
He explained further the Holy Communion is a serious matter and should not be taken unworthily.
“Many are eating it unworthily that is why they are experiencing so many things they should not experience. You can’t come to the Lord’s Table and bear grudges and harbor hatred in your heart against your brother or sister. You will be doing yourself a great harm,”
UK And DSS Petitioned To Probe Buhari’s Cambridge Documents
The Department of State Services and the London Metropolitan Police Service have been petitioned to investigate the documents said to have been obtained from Cambridge University and presented by President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential election petition tribunal.
Abba Kyari, the president’s chief of staff, had told the tribunal that he obtained the President’s ‘assessment’ documents from Cambridge University.
He was quoted as saying he personally signed for and collected the documents on behalf of the President.
The UK-based examination body oversaw the conduct of final year secondary school examination in Nigeria and placement into foreign universities in the 1960s.
In the two petitions forwarded by Agu, the lawyer questioned the authenticity of the ‘certifying statement’ said to have been obtained from the Cambridge Assessment International Education.
He asked the UK police and the DSS to launch an investigation into the circumstances leading to the procurement.
DSS Arrests El-Zakzaky And Wife On Return To Nigeria
Leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) otherwise known as Shitte, Ibrahim El-ZakZaky and his wife, Zeenat were on Friday arrested by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) upon their arrival to Nigeria.
El-Zakzaky and wife arrived in Nigeria through an Ethiopian Airlines by exactly 12noon at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.
Ibrahim Musa, IMN spokesperson confirmed that the Shiites leader was taken away by the DSS operatives.
El-Zakzaky had rejected medical treatment in India, claiming the Nigerian government frustrated efforts to get his preferred doctors to attend to him and Zeenat.
“All what we have seen here, have shown us that there is no trust, they just brought us here for another detention,”
El-Zakzaky said while in India.
Nigerian Government, however, denied El-Zakzaky’s claims.
The permanent secretary at Nigeria’s information and culture ministry Grace Gekpe, in a statement on Wednesday, described the allegations as “foul cry”.
She accused the Shiites leader of seeking medical treatment abroad for “ulterior motives against laid down procedures”.
She said that the claim by the IMN leader that he was held in circumstances worse than he was in Nigeria should be disregarded.
Gekpe said he had
“Requested that his passport be handed over to him” and also “refused to subject himself to preliminary medical checks.”
The Shiites leader and his wife Zeenat left Nigeria for India on Monday for medical check-up aboard Emirate flight EK786 at about 6:45 pm en route Dubai to Mumbai, India.
Barely 24-hours of arriving India for medical treatment, El-Zakzaky Thursday said he did not trust the doctors assign to treat him in India.
El-Zakzaky said his supposed medical trip has been worse than times he had been in prison detention.
The Shiites leader said he and Zeenat cannot
“Allow a stranger to treat us, lest not what couldn’t be done with bullets be carried out in a different way.”
El-Zakzaky and his wife have been in the detention of the Nigeria government since 2015.
He faces an eight-count of culpable homicide, unlawful assembly and disturbance of public peace.
