The family of the late Pastor Dare Adeboye has declared their unflinching love for God despite his untimely death.
Dare, 42, died on Tuesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was a youth pastor. He was reported to have slept and did not wake up and was later confirmed dead.
The deceased’s father and General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Friday night during the monthly Holy Ghost service of the church at the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State, broke his silence on the tragedy.
During his ministration, which was also broadcast to members through Dove TV, he said God was sovereign and could not be queried for his actions.
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.
“What we see as sorrows might be joy in the sight of God. I mean His ways and thoughts are not the same as ours, we shouldn’t forget that both good and bad happen at God’s command.
“Finally, in all things, let’s learn to say thank you Father, and it is well. God bless all of you in Jesus’ name.”
Meanwhile, the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), 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.
He said what matters is not how long people live but how well. The cleric also called for a moment of silence over the death of Pastor Dare.
