Pastor Adeboye breaks silence on son’s death
General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Friday night broke his silence after the death of his third son, Dare Adeboye.
Preaching at the May 2021 edition of the church’s Holy Ghost service, Adeboye urged everyone to always thank God and say ‘It is well’ even in the face of crises rather than ‘blame and question God’.
The clergyman spoke from the studio of the church’s station – DOVE Media – alongside few officials including his wife, Folu Adeboye, while members of his church gathered at the auditorium along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
WITHIN NIGERIA had reported that Dare, one of the sons of ‘Daddy G.O’, died in his sleep on Wednesday night at his home in Eket, Akwa Ibom State.
He said: “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.”
With biblical reference to Ezekiel 24:16, he said, “God took away Ezekiel’s wife and asked him not to mourn over her”.
“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,” Adeboye said.
Adeboye further stated that peace is one of the blessings only God can give saying “There is a peace that passes human understanding. It is only God that can give that peace. I thank God that I have that peace.”
