He said God is sovereign, and knows the end from the beginning and that “all things work together for good for those who love the Lord.” He vowed that he would buttress the work of Dare by showing greater interest in youths.
The General Overseer of the RCCG spoke, yesterday, at the farewell service for the late Pastor Dare Adeboye at the Youth Church, Redemption Camp, in a recorded message.
“I not only want to thank you but to tell you that we are all loved by God and that we are more than conquerors.x
“God knows the end from the beginning who said all things work together for good for the family, RCCG and the body of Christ.
“God is sovereign and does as He pleases. He does not need a visa to visit anyone and does whatever He wants to do in anybody’s life,” he said.
He also noted that whatever God demands, the answer is “Yes,” adding: “He is to be obeyed whether it is convenient or not.
“We have lost a champion but we are not dwelling on the loss but considering the seed he has sown.
“We want to raise many champions like Dare, who will go round the world and shake the world like never before.x
“The Church of God is matching on and the gate of hell cannot prevail,” he further said. Adeboye, who said for every examination, there is promotion and that Dare’s demise was a big examination, urged the church members to keep on praying for the widow, the children Dare left behind, themselves and for everybody to finish well.
The preacher at the service, Pastor Kola Oyelehin, said that Dare was a General, adding that people should fear Generals with stars but without scars.
He admonished that in every facet of life, man should give thanks, expect joy and always move on.
In his biography, Dare was described as a pace-setter, trail-blazer, bridge-builder, peace-maker, leader per excellence, among others.
At the service were the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo; his wife, Dolapo; Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Emmanuel Udom; former governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko; President of El-buba Outreach Ministry, Prophet Ise El-buba; Presiding Bishop, Living Faith, David Oyedepo; Senior Pastor, Covenant Christian Centre, Poju Oyemade, among others.x
