H I D Awolowo Is In The Heaven -Pastor Adeboye

Adeboye-NEW-BellaNaijaPastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has said that he had no doubt in his mind that the matriarch of the Awolowo family, Chief (Mrs) Hannah Idowu Dideolu Awolowo, is resting with the Lord, Nigerian Tribune reports
Pastor Adeboye said this while speaking at a private prayer session held with the family at the Efunyela hall, Awolowo compound, Ikenne, Ogun State, on Tuesday.
The renown preacher entered the Awolowo compound at 1:00 p.m., headed straight to the hall and commenced the programme where the family members, relations, friends and other well wishers were already seated.
He said: “By the special grace of God and because of my interaction with Mama, I have no doubt at all that she is in heaven now.”
Pastor Adeboye, who shared his experience with the audience on how he was privileged to know Chief (Mrs) Awolowo, noted that he had a personal encounter with her two weeks before her death.
According to Pastor Adeboye: “Before Mama passed on, she was making a request and I was contacted. I won’t go into details about the request but I was abroad and when I came back, I saw her and we had a little discussion before she passed away. As a result of that, I have no doubt that Mama is resting with the Lord.”
He used the occasion to charge the congregation to also strive to make heaven.
“You have to consider your own case, because all of us can’t say when it will be our turn. Would you end up resting in the Lord or you end up on he other side? The choice is yours.”
The General Overseer then led a 20-minute prayer session which he said was being held on three points.
According to him: “The question is why are we having a special prayer at this time like this. The reasons are number one; that at a time of celebration, that is when we are most vulnerable to the enemies. If you look through the scriptures, you will find out that most of the people who run into serious problems got into trouble because of celebrations and we don’t want that to happen during this celebration.
“This is a very big celebration involving the whole nation. We want to pray in advance that nothing evil will happen to us during this celebration and after this celebration.
“Second reason we need to pray is because many people will be coming. We don’t want anybody to say that it was when I was coming for this occasion that I had an accident. We have started peacefully and we will end it peacefully. We want people to come in peace and return in peace.
“Thirdly, why we need to pray because of the legacy of our parents who have gone. We want it said that after the transition of Papa and Mama, the Awolowo family became stronger and bigger. We don’t want a situation where things will now begin to diminish. We want to pray for the legacy they are leaving behind that the Almighty God will keep the legacy and move the children to higher heights,” he said.
