Evangelist Mike Bamiloye, the founder of the Mount Zion TV, has lashed out at some Nigerian youths who attacked clergyman and founder of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, over his birthday message to his wife.
Adeboye had in a birthday message to his wife as she clocked 72 revealed some of the chores she still does for him even at her age and with her busy schedule. In the message, he said, “Today is my wife’s birthday and there are lessons that women, especially so many young brides can learn from her. She is a powerful woman, I know that.
“She has many people who take instructions from her, but as powerful as she is, and even though she has seen me in my weakest moments, I have no doubt that I am her head. It does not matter what is on her itinerary if I say I would like you to go with me to so and so place the best she can do is try to convince me otherwise.
“If I insist, she would cancel whatever she was to do and come along with me. The Bible in Ephesians 5:23 says: ‘For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church…’
The husband is the head of the wife. No matter how educated or successful you are, your husband is your head and you must regard him as such at all times. It is a terrible thing for a husband to feel his wife is his head.
“Many men are misbehaving in their marriages simply because they want to establish that they are the head of their wives. Also, my wife is my number one fan. She wrote in the book Mathematics of Marriage – which we coauthored, that as my helpmate she knows she cannot help me
without my instructions, so when they come, her response is Yes sir.
“Busy as she is, she still cooks my meals and serves me herself. Many young ladies these days leave everything to the house help. My wife still trims my nails for me. There was a time when I was a teacher and was staying far from town. She had to cut my hair during that period. She is the only partner of the Adeboye Corporation; she doesn’t delegate her primary duties to anyone else.
“Just like the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31:1-31, I safely rest on my wife. Anything I uphold, she upholds too. Can your husband rely on you? Make up for your husband’s weaknesses, celebrate his successes, be his number one cheerleader. I wish my lovely wife a Happy Birthday.”
However, some youths, particularly a segment of them who refer to themselves as feminists criticized Adeboye for the message, saying that the message shows that his wife is a slave to him and that their union isn’t one built on love.
Irked by this, Evangelist Bamiloye took to his social media to react to the series of backlash. He said, “2 Kings 2:23-25 NKJV  Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up the road, some youths came from the city and mocked him, and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!”
“ So he turned around and looked at them, and pronounced a curse on them in the name of the LORD. And two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.  Then he went from there to Mount Carmel, and from there he returned to Samaria.
“We have some great youths in this nation, who are very exceptional leaders of tomorrow. Who would fulfill God’s mandate for their generation? But I cry for many youths of this generation who lack respect for great elders and intercessors of the nation.
“Can you imagine some youths who are not yet married, singles and still searching insulting a man who had been married for fifty two years with successful marriage and happy home and great children with great international influence. I read one of the Tweets advising Papa Adeboye how to speak about his wife next time. I am amazed at this terrible spirit of the end time that is making many youths of this time to stagger like drunken men
“The youths that seriously needs Prayers and Spiritual intervention for various daunting issues of their lives are bashing a Man who have prayed for Millions in many Nations. Where do you run to now, when Storms of life arise upon your Sea of life? A Man whom God has favored massively, with branches of his church in more than 190 nations of the World, yet finding time to celebrate in the public, his wife of 52 years, yet some Youths we are trusting the Lord for future Partners and still searching here and there for their Future are angry at the Man whose PRAYERS they All NEED.
“A humble Man that commands attention of nations is being corrected and advised by some Youths of the land, on how to manage his marriage, and how to speak well about his wife next time. Some Youths are even angry at Mummy Adeboye for been too submissive to her husband. You are angry at the Woman whose all Children are successful and Flourishing? You need her Prayers!
