The wife of the late Pastor Dare Adeboye, Temiloluwa Adeboye on Monday disclosed that her husband told her before his death that if he died, he knew he was fulfilled because he had done what the Lord asked him to do.
Temiloluwa spoke at the Evening of Worship and Tribute which held at the RCCG, House Of Favour, Redemption Camp, said her husband was not afraid of death, stating that she was sure the late cleric was in heaven.
“Pastor Dare, my husband was a wonderful person. He was amazing in every sense of the way. I do not mourn him at all; I weep because he left me. He slept, he did not die. And I know, I am sure, because on the resurrection morning, he will rise again and we will see him in glory, she said.
“I am sure because he was saved. I am sure because he believed in Christ, his salvation was sure, it was certain.
“He said if I die today, I know I am fulfilled, I have done what the Lord has asked me to do, he was not afraid of death. He was not afraid. It is not a matter of time but how well and he lived a good life, he lived to the glory of God. He lived, he served God. His life was dedicated to Christ and that is why I am sure that he is heaven.
“I am sure that he made it. And I want to say brethren today, if you are not sure of your salvation. If you are not sure that if you sleep tonight, you might not wake up tomorrow, you are not sure of where you will be in eternity. If you have not yet given your life to Christ, if you are here today to see because you heard. Yes, it is true; he is sleeping in the Lord but are you sure of yourself, are you sure of where you will be? Are you sure of where you will be?”
Dare, the first child of Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, died last Wednesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family.
The 42-year-old father of three young girls, was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35 before his death.
Reacting to his death, the family last week said it will never begrudge God over his death, as the deceased left a great legacy behind.
The deceased’s father and General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, who spoke on Friday night during the monthly Holy Ghost service of the church at the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State, said God was sovereign and could not be queried for his actions.
“Whatever we have is given to us by God, be it wealth, wife, husband, children e.t.c and if it got taken away by God, all we can do is give God glory for actually giving us the privilege to enjoy those wealth or kids temporarily and it is not for us to complain, blame and question God, Pastor Adeboye said.
“What we see as sorrows might be joy in the sight of God, I mean His ways and thoughts are not the same with ours, we shouldn’t forget that both good and bad happen at God’s command.
“Finally, in all things, let’s learn to say thank you Father, and it is well. God bless all of you in Jesus’ name.”
