Insurgency: Love is the solution 'Adejuwon

Published by Tribune on Sun, 11 Jan 2015


He is the first Nigerian to preach on same pulpit as Kenneth Hagin and is usually referred to as a mobile Bible. Tokunbo Adejuwon, acting national director, Rhema Bible Training Centre, Abuja, and guest preacher at December Acquire, the Fire Conference of Fullstature Missions International, Ibadan, in this interview, tells TAIWO OLANREWAJU about his 31-year experience in the faith. Excerpts:How did you feel being the first black person to mount the same pulpit as renowned world preacher, Kenneth Hagin'I would say the first Nigerian, possibly the first person from West Africa. It was such an honour. It was such a privilege, being able to share on that platform the same truth that blessed our lives; that changed our lives; that affected our nation. It was such an honour, such a big honour that I don't take lightly in anyway.Why are you popularly described as a mobile Bible'Naturally, I have a good memory. After I became born again, I came across a bible passage, John 1:4 where tit is stated that 'In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.' I saw the fact that light stands for development. I began to confess it that the life of God is in me, and that life is my light. The light is my development. It enhances my mentality and increases my intelligence. I remember things supernaturally. I remember things miraculously. I began to quote and claim that shortly after I got saved and I found out that I remember things much easier, until I could read something I never read before just once and I could remember and quote it word for word. So, it is just something I thank God for.When you were growing up, what did you hope to become in life'When I was younger, I knew in my heart that I was meant to preach. But my dad was a professor in the College of Medicine and my mum was a senior matron at the University College Hospital (UCH). When I reached the age of accountability, ambition set in, I wanted to be a medical doctor. But on October 9, 1983, I got born again and the sense of the call came back. I knew I was meant to preach and if I didn't preach the gospel, I'll never be fulfilled in life. I've been doing that ever since.Did you suffer persecution in the hands of your parents'My dad didn't want to hear the idea. He wasn't born-again at that time. He didn't like it that I was a Christian. I received severe persecution. He seized my Bibles. He seized my Kenneth Hagin books. He banned us from going to church on Sunday morning. He would tell us we were going to the market. So I had it quite challenging. My mum was saved early; she got born again before anybody else. But then, it was fun living with some of those things. But eventually, my dad saw reality; God's love touched him as well.What advice would you give to Christians on insurgency'What I will tell believers is to love those who are not saved, not to hate them. Anybody who unleashes terror is not doing something good; it is something awful. The solution is the love of Jesus. We should pray for them that God's love would reach out to them. We should go out with the gospel, the truth of the word of God and have a heart of love for them. It is love that would melt the coldest of hearts.There are measures the government ought to take to curb violence. We should also pray that we have the right leadership in the nation.What advice do you have for Christians in general'It's good to give God's word first place. Cultivate a prayer life. Walk in intimate fellowship with God. The real test of our knowledge of God is our love walk. Many times, people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. We need to love people. If there is one thing I wish every believer would take seriously, it is the issue of walking in love. We can walk in love towards the unreached and the unchurched. But it is God's love that never fails.
