During the ongoing annual Holy Ghost Congress of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye shared his thoughts on the way he envisions his own passing. In a candid revelation on Thursday in Ogun State, the General Overseer expressed his desire for a death reminiscent of that of one of his uncles.
In his reflections, Pastor Adeboye remarked, “I know somebody will say if we are never sick, how are we going to die and go to heaven? You don’t need to be sick to go to heaven.” The statement underscores his belief that one’s journey to heaven is not contingent upon illness, offering a perspective on a graceful and peaceful transition.
“An uncle of mine woke up on a thanksgiving Sunday, went to Church, danced like everybody else, came home and his wife gave him a light breakfast before preparing the original food which was pounded yam. She was already pounding the yam when my uncle decided to go to the toilet.
“After she finished pounding, she knocked at the door of the toilet, when they opened the door, my uncle was gone; no sickness, no ache, no pain. If the Lord tarries His coming, I will go on a Sunday after a good meal of pounded yam.”
