Bishop David Oyedepo has declared that there is no going back in the body of Christ despite setbacks suffered recently.
The respected man of God made the statement while praying at Pastor Dare Adeboye’s Farewell Service held on Tuesday, May 11, and monitored by Legit.ng.
The founder of the Living Faith Church also prayed for the family of the deceased and the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
“Every challenge of life requires a constant. Every problem in life requires a constant solution. 'Let God be true' is our constant.
“Ever reliable, ever sure, He knows what He is doing. No going back, it shall be Forward Ever. For the entire family, it shall be Forward Ever.
“For the Redeemed Christian Church of God, it shall be Forward Ever. For the Body of Christ, it shall be Forward Ever.”
Continuing, he prayed:
“Heavenly Father, we thank You because of the assurance we have that You are ever in charge.
“We thank You for the Word we heard this morning. We thank You because the Church of God is moving forward.
“I ask now like we have all joined to pray, let your good hand rest upon every single member of this family.
“Lord, build a wall of fire around this family. Lord, keep this family on the move till the end of time. Let there be no looking back from anyone in the name of Jesus. Holy Spirit, the comforter, now take over from this moment.
“Sweep over the spirit, the mind, and the soul of every one member of this family in the name of Jesus Christ.”
Recall that Temiloluwa Adeboye, the wife of the late Pastor Dare, recently revealed that her husband was not afraid of death, adding that she was sure he was already in heaven.
According to Temiloluwa, 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 on earth.
Temiloluwa made the comment on Monday, May 10 at the evening of worship and tribute held at the headquarters of the RCCG, Redemption Camp, Ogun state.
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.
