“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.
“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 in heaven.”
Meanwhile, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state has commiserated with the General Overseer of the RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, and his wife over the death of their son, Pastor Dare Adeboye.
Okowa, in a statement sent to Legit.ng on Friday, May 7 by his spokesman, Olisa Ifeajika, said the news of the untimely passing of Pastor Dare came as a great shock.
He described the incident as a real tragedy but urged the Adeboyes to be strong as no one could question God.
In a related development, the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet TB Joshua, has suggested that God’s time played a role in the sudden demise of Pastor Dare.
The cleric made the suggestion on Friday, May 7, in a condolence message to the Adeboye family published on the Facebook post of his ministry, adding that what matters is not how long people live but how well.
Prophet Joshua also called for a moment of silence over the death of the young pastor.
