Nigeria Needs Sanctification – Bishop Adeoye

The lead bishop of Worldwide Anglican Church (WAC) in Nigeria, Bishop Seun Adeoye, has said the unending shedding of innocent blood in Nigeria has negatively impacted the country hence the need for sanctification.

The cleric, who spoke during the conclusion of  four- day 2024 passover celebration  at Rehoboth Arena, Okinni, Osun State, called on President Bola Tinubu to invite Christian leaders with the aim of declaring a day or a week of atonement for the cleansing, healing and prosperity of Nigeria.

He lamented that thousands of innocent citizens have been killed by bandits, terrorists, separatists, kidnappers, ritualists, mobs and other armed gangs and unfortunately,  “we all looked away unconcerned as if such dastardly acts are normal in our society”.

Adeoye who took his message from the Book of Numbers 35: 30-34, said the shedding of innocent blood constituted grievous offence before God while such land is declared by the Scripture as “polluted as defiled”.

The cleric urged Christians who understood the great spiritual importance of the blood Jesus shed on the Cross and the power of His resurrection to pray fervently to God to be merciful on Nigeria by healing the land.

He explained that the menace of hunger, economic hardship, untold suffering and several other challenges ravaging the country is beyond what any politician can resolve without God’s intervention, saying that Nigeria’s land needs to be cleansed without delay.

“Any land where innocent souls are killed without justification is placed under the curse of God, and the word of God says that the only remedy to atone the land is to shed the blood of the killers. That is blood for blood!” he said

“We may not know it but I can say this that the uncountable blood of innocent souls shed in Nigeria are daily crying for revenge. They are asking for blood. But glory be to God that there is the excellent blood of Jesus, already shed and available for the atonement of the land,” he stated.
