The Woman Who Wanted Pastor E. A. Adeboye At All Costs

The Woman Who Wanted Pastor E. A. Adeboye At All Costs

There was once a lady in this church. She was highly educated and was a senior official of the West African Examination Council. She was married with successful children – one of them a bank manager. Everything about her looked normal, but she was an agent of the devil. How did we know? She came to me one day and declared, “Thus saith the Lord, you are my husband.”
I said, “That is not possible. I’m happily married. I’m a man of God and you know I’m committed to a life of holiness.”
She said, “You are joking, I’m going to marry you, God told me so.”
She then resorted to writing me love letters every day.
I got fed up with this one day and pleaded with her,  “Please, I don’t want to see any more of these letters. .”
One day, she came to the Redemption Camp to threaten my wife, saying, “If you will not allow me to marry your husband, I will kill you.”
It was hard to imagine such a well-dressed and highly educated woman who occupied an enviable position in her work place resorting to such dire threats,   but she was an embodiment of evil.
So we invited her husband and key family members to speak to us and begged them to  restrain her.  When all our efforts proved abortive, we then took the case to the Inspector General of Police to try to stop her from coming to the church. But that also didn’t work..
One day I went to London. It was a secret trip because I didn’t want any interference with what I was going there to do – to prepare a Sunday School booklet. I planned to work quietly for three days before making my presence known. The moment I arrived at  the house where I was going to stay, the phone rang. I picked up and the voice said, “Welcome, I have been waiting for you. I will be with you in fifteen minutes.”
I knew there was a very big problem. It was the woman.
I told her, “If you don’t know anything at all, you should at least know that the British police don’t tolerate this sort of harassment. ”
She insisted, “Fifteen minutes! I know where you are staying, I will be there.”
I said, “The police shall be waiting for you at the door.”
She knew that there was a police station less than a two- minute walk from where I was staying, so she didn’t come. But she kept on phoning, and in those days there were no IDD phones to enable callers’ number to be seen. So until the phone was picked up, you could not tell who was calling.
At that stage I had to turn to God in prayer. 
“Father, what do I do now?”
Daddy said to me, “Son, you know the meaning of ‘whatever you bind on earth is bound in Heaven, whatever you loose on earth is loosened in Heaven.” 
I said, “Yes, Lord.”
“You know it means that whatever you allow is allowed, whatever you forbid is forbidden.” 
I said, “Yes, Lord.”
He said, “It is up to you.” 
“Ah, up to me? Then this mountain shall move.”
So I told the woman one last time to leave me alone and, with God’s will behind my command, she obeyed and I never had any trouble from her again.
