Don’t cry for my son, Pastor Adeboye urges

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Tuesday, described his late son, Dare, as a “champion”.
It was the first time Adeboye would speak on his son’s death. He spoke on Tuesday in a pre-recorded message played during the Farewell Service in honour of his late son at the Youth Centre, Redemption Camp, along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway
It would be recalled that Dare died last Wednesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family. The 42-year-old was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35 before his death. He was father to three daughters.
Dare was later buried in the presence of friends, family and church members on Tuesday afternoon.
It was a cascade of tears, whimpering sobs and free flow of emotions on Tuesday afternoon as the remains of Pastor Dare Adeboye was laid to rest.
Speaking at the farewell service, his 79-year-old father said, “Cry if you wish but don’t cry for pastor Dee (as Dare is fondly called) because he is resting in glory.
“Cry because you are the one still fighting the battle. Anyone who has caught a glimpse of heaven will not be crying for Pastor Dee because there is no comparison between heaven and earth.
“But then fight courageously because, on the resurrection morning, we shall meet again.”
“I want you to know that God who knows the end from the beginning knew long before the foundations of the world that what has happened was going to happen.
