The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has reacted to the death of his son, Dare Adeboye.
Bofem NG had on Thursday exclusively reported how Dare died in his sleep on Tuesday, May 4 in Eket, Akwa-Ibom where he was pastoring a church.
Speaking on Friday night at the May 2021 edition of the church’s Holy Ghost service, Daddy Adeboye said: “It is well even in the face of crises rather than ‘blame and question God”.
Adeboye who said he cannot blame or question God over the death of his son urged everyone to always thank God for the privilege of meeting with Dare when he was alive.
“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 that wealth or kids temporarily and it is not for us to complain, blame and question God,” he said.
“God took away Ezekiel’s wife and asked him not to mourn over her,” he said while making reference a Bible passage, Ezekiel 24:16.
“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.
“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,” he added.
Adeboye also allayed fears on over possibility of a third wave of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Nigeria, saying it was due to the prayers of Christians that COVID-19 did not take a detrimental dimension.
“Don’t listen to any person who says it is by their own wisdom that coronavirus is now subdued in Nigeria. It is because you prayed. You asked God for mercy, and God heard, and in the mighty name of Jesus, there will be no third wave.
“But, I want to encourage you that you need to pray again. We have problems of many kinds in Nigeria so very soon; you might be summoned to pray again.
“We need to pray against all the problems we are facing, and God will answer when we pray,” Adeboye said.
