- The respected man of God said this while commenting on the death of his 42-year-old son, Pastor Dare
- Pastor Adeboye said one should give God glory when such things happen rather than blame and question the Almighty
Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) on Friday night, May 7, spoke on the demise of his son, Pastor Dare Adeboye.
Pastor Dare died in his sleep at the age of 42 on Tuesday, May 4 in Eket, Akwa-Ibom where he was leading a church.
Preaching at the May 2021 edition of the church’s Holy Ghost service, Pastor Adeboye urged the worshippers to always give thanks rather than ‘blame and question God’, The Nation reported.
“Whatever we have is given to us by God, be it wealth, wife, husband, children etc 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.”
With biblical reference to Ezekiel 24:16, he said, “God took away Ezekiel’s wife and asked him not to mourn over her”.
The respected cleric continued:
“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. (Lamentations 3:38).
“Finally in all things let’s learn to say thank you father and It is well. God bless all of you in Jesus’ name."
Meanwhile, the Adeboye family has announced the burial arrangement for Pastor Dare.
According to a Facebook post by Pastor Adeboye’s personal assistant, Leke, the funeral rites will hold at the RCCG convention centre at the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
Leke who is also a brother of the deceased thanked the public for the outpouring of support to the family during this period.
