Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has disclosed how God once stopped talking to him during one of his teachings.
Adeboye recounted how pride made God stop talking to him shortly after he got born again.
Addressing his members at the Redemption Camp, the clergyman recounted that he made a mistake of pride and he suffered for it.
According to Adeboye: “Almost immediately after I got born again, God started speaking to me, I don’t do anything without his guidance or approval. He tells me the road to ply in Lagos so that I can bypass hold up, most of you here know how terrible Lagos traffic is. Fortunately for me, I don’t experience it because God knows a better route.
“However, something happened that made him stop communicating with me. I used to be an interpreter to the general overseer or general superintendent like we call it those days. My father in the Lord then just took a special interest in my interpretation. When other pastors in the church then realised that the general overseer liked my interpretation, they stopped calling me to interpret for them and left me alone for the general overseer.
“I became full of myself and started bouncing around as interpreter to the general overseer but an incident happened one day. We had a program and we invited a guest minister to preach. He made a mistake that day, you may be surprised at my definition of a mistake. The mistake was that he asked me to interpret for himself. I was really angry in my spirit but I couldn’t object because it was too late.
“I stood up and interpreted for him but in my heart, I was murmuring, I said ‘How could you call me a whole interpreter to the general overseer to interpret for you’. Only if he knew what was in my mind, he would have called another person to interpret that very day.
“At the end of the program, I was on my way home and God spoke, he said ‘Son, you are now too big to interpret to a man of God other than the general overseer”. After the conversation, God stopped speaking to me, I didn’t hear His voice again.
“I suffered, that whole period was like hell, I became a victim of the traffic in Lagos.”

Tinubu’s inauguration: We’re in charge here – Enenche dares witches, wizards coming to FCT
The Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Center, Dr Paul Enenche has issued stern warning to witches and wizards coming into the Federal Capital Territory for the May 29 presidential inauguration.
It would be recall that the White Witches and Wizards Association of Nigeria had on May 1st, said they were making efforts to storm the nation’s capital in a bid to cleanse and detoxify the environment for the President-elect, Bola Tinubu to operate in.
The Spokesperson of the association, Okhue Obo who stated this in a statement, assured the President-elect of a peaceful inauguration, warning those plotting to scuttle the event to desist.
The statement reads partly, “There is no reason for Tinubu to be afraid because all the campaigns of calumny mounted against him are mere threats.
“We are currently making efforts to clean and detoxify the Abuja environment where Tinubu will operate from”.
Our correspondent gathered that some members of the association stormed Abuja earlier in the week to carry out the proposed cleansing and detoxification.
Reacting to the development, Enenche who spoke on Friday night during the just concluded Destiny Recovery Convention, dared the witches and wizards, saying “we are in charge here”.
The fiery man of God instructed other clergymen to anoint strategic places in the city as a spiritual battle against other forces.
He said, “There are some agents of the devil that said they are coming to cleanse this city.
“Anybody who is from the devil, sent from the pit of hell that enters this city to plant any agenda of hell, if they are not cut off then we have no right to preach.
“Every witches and bitches, lizards and wizards, Hey! We are serving you notice to let you know we are in charge here and we are not about to change our minds.
“Pastors, we are going to take prophetic action in this city within the next 24 hours. Carry bottles of oil and go through the territory, anoint the ground and pour oil on this ground.
Every agent of the devil who steps on this ground for a demonic agenda is a dead agent.
“Every agent of the devil who steps into the city for the sake of Satan the devil, as we pour the fire on the earth, if they trample on this earth and still survive, we are not serving the living God.”
