General Overseer, Redeem Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said he would like to die peacefully.
He told the congregation of his desire on Day 3 of the RCCG Holy Ghost Congress at the Redemption Camp in Ogun state.
Adeboye said he would like to die on a Sunday after enjoying a special meal. He also recalled how his uncle passed away in the toilet.
The cleric said his uncle returned from the Church on Sunday, the day of his death and got a light meal from his wife while waiting for the pounded yam being prepared for him.
However, the man decided to use the toilet when his wife was in the kitchen, and sadly he died there without sickness or any pain.
Pastor Adeboye reiterated that he wanted a peaceful death when it was time for him and prayed that everyone listening to him would die peacefully without any illness.
He said, “I know somebody will say, well, if we are never sick, then how are we ever going to die and go to Heaven? You don’t need to be sick to go to Heaven.
“An uncle of mine woke up on a Thanksgiving Sunday, went to Church, danced like everybody else, came home, the wife gave him a light breakfast before preparing the original food – 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.”
