Wife of late son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Dare Adeboye, Temitope Adeboye, has broken her long silence on the death of her husband, saying he did not die but asleep.
Mrs. Adeboye spoke during an “Evening of worship and tribute” service held in honour of her late husband at RCCG House of Favour, Redemption Camp, Kilometre 64 – 48, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State.
Temitope, in her tribute to her husband during the service of songs on Monday evening at the Redemption Camp, described her him as a wonderful man.
“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’ve 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 how short, it is not a matter of time, but how well and He lived well.
“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,” she stated.
According to Temitope, “I am sure that he made it. I want to say brethren today, if you are not sure of your salvation, if you are not sure if you sleep tonight you might not wake up tomorrow.
“You are not sure of where you will be in eternity. You have not given your life to Christ at all. If you are here today, you heard and perhaps you just came to see: Yes, It’s true, he is sleeping in the Lord.”
The service was attended by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; his wife, Pastor Dolapo; former Ogun and Ondo states governors Otunba Gbenga Daniel and Dr. Olusegun Mimiko; wife of former Imo State Governor Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) President Bishop Wale Oke, among others.
The Pastor-in-Charge of Lagos Region 35 (LP35), Pastor Bisi Akande, presided over the service.
