‘He slept, he did not die’ – Temiloluwa Adeboye, Wife of Pastor Dare Adeboye says
Pastor Dare Adeboye’s wife, Temiloluwa Adeboye, has said that her late husband led a decent life and was never afraid of death.
Temiloluwa said her husband told her before he died that if he died, he would know he was satisfied because he had done what the Lord had commanded him to do. She spoke at a night of Worship and Tribute held for him at the Redemption Camp on Monday, May 10.
“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 have 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 time but how well and 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 heaven.
“I am sure that he made it. And I want to say brethren today, if you are not sure of your salvation. If you are not sure that if you sleep tonight, you might not wake up tomorrow, you are not sure of where you will be in eternity. If you have not yet given your life to Christ, if you are here today to see because you heard. Yes, it is true; he is sleeping in the Lord but are you sure of yourself, are you sure of where you will be? Are you sure of where you will be?” she said.
