During the burial service for the deceased , the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Pastor Adeboye who gave a virtual speech enjoined the congregation not be be grieved about his death as he is resting in glory.
Here are the full text of Pastor Adeboye's Speech.;
Long before the foundations of the world , that what has happened is going to happen , and because his word is forever settled , he said all things worked together for good to them that love God .
We may not understand now but what had Happened is going to work out for our good , as individuals , as families, and as a denomination and as a matter of fact it's going to work out for the good of the Church of God as a whole, am talking of the body of Christ.
I just want to remind us of one or two things very quickly .Number one, God is Sovereign, He does as He pleases on the cause of heaven .
In One of his sermon, Dare himself said , God does not need. a visa to pay you a visit or do whatever he want to do in your life, he does not need your permission.
He Is The Almighty ,he is the Lord of host, he's the Commander in Chief of all the host of heaven ,you don't command the commander in-chief, He tells You what to do.nobody ever says no Lord, you don't say no to your Lord whatever your Lord says , the answer is , yes Lord.
I have taught You that when You obey, when it is convenient for You , that is called co-operation, when you obey , when it is not convenient at all is called submission and the day we said we surrender our life to Jesus Christ, we are saying yes Lord we submit, yes Lord to everything, in living , in dieing, when it is convenient ,when it is inconvenient it is yes Lord ,
And I have told You before , DEATH is not a function of age ,young people die , old people die , children die, it's not the function of age and we have also learnt that it is not how long You live , it is how well because Jesus Christ himself died at the age of thirty three plus ,John the Baptist never lived to be thirty - four and yet the Lord Jesus Christ said of all Men born of a woman in the old testament, the greatest was John the Baptist, he wasn't around for long .
We have lost a champion ,you will agree with me on that , then let us considered him a seed that we have sown and let us get ready for a very very special harvest . The Bible says the reason God sowed Jesus Christ as a seed is so , that he can become the first born of many brethren.
I want us to join our forces together and produce many Champions like Damilare , let's produce thousands of Pastor Dee, that will go round the whole world and shake the world for the Lord Jesus Christ. As a matter of fact that is how we can really honor him and honor his memory.
The Church of God is marching on the gate of hell can not prevail against the Church of God .It doesn't matter what the devil may be thinking now . The devil was rejoicing the day the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross but if he had known what was coming , he would have left the Lord alone. The devil was rejoicing when Job lost all his children in one day and lost several other things as a result, but if he had known he would have left Job alone because at the end , the Bible says God bless the latter end of Job more than the beginning .
My beloveth Children , I have a good news for You , mighty things are about to begin, in our individual lives , in our families , in The Redeemed Christian Church of God, in the Body of Christ , mighty things are about to begin , because I recorded a message of this Sunday that we just past before this Incident happened and if you listen to that sermon , at the two o'clock sermon and you heard me saying recorded before the incident that for every examination that you pass , there will be promotion, the tougher the exam the bigger the promotion.This has been a tough one but by the Grace of God we have passed and Promotion is on the way .
So am going to encourage you , let's join forces together , let's wins more soul like never before , let's plant churches like never before. Let's drive the devil crazy let's show him the stuff we are made of . Even the Bible says if you failed in the day of trouble, it means your strength is small but our strength is not small , it's not small because greater is he that is in US than he that is in the world , and the word of God is settled, the gate of hell shall not prevail against His Church .We are marching on .
Cry , if you wish to but don't cry for Pastor Dee because he is resting in glory . Cry because you are the one still fighting the battle but then, fight courageously because on resurrection morning , we shall meet again .
Thank you very very much for coming, thank you for your show of love ,keep on praying for me because Paul have said , pray for us . Keep on praying for my wife , keep on praying for the widow , keep on praying for the children but more than anything else , keep on praying for yourself that you too will finish well , finish strong, so that on the resurrection morning we shall be together again.
Anyone who had got the glimpse of heaven will not be crying for Pastor Dee because there is no comparison between Heaven and the Earth . I have seen it , I know what am talking about . If You see me working like jackal at My age it's because I know the reward that is waiting , the more you achieved for him for the Lord here on earth , the more will be your reward when you get to heaven.
Join me my beloveth Children , let's March on , let's smash the head of Satan let's show him that the army of the Almighty God , is marching on to Victory.
God bless you all , you will .end well , you will end strong , we are going to be much more stronger than ever before, get ready for miracles that you have not seen before happening in your life, happening in your families , happening in The Redeemed Christian Church of God , happening in the body of Christ so that the enemy will hear us coming and tremble .
God bless you my beloveth ones , God be with you and I want to give you one assurance like never before , I mean like never before , we are putting this on record am going to show even greater interest in the youth and the young adults ministry of our mission .
God bless you , have a wonderful time , I will see you again soon in Jesus mighty name , Praise the Lord.
