Akinade Has Finished His Course - Oyedepo

THE founder of the Living Faith Ministries (a.k.a Winners Chapel), Bishop David Oyedepo, has described the demise of Prophet Elijah Oluwafemi Akinade, who passed unto glory on April 30 at the age of 55, as a sign that he had accomplished his task on earth.

Oyedepo said this through Bishop Taiwo Adelakun of Victory Chapel International at the national headquarters of Christ Apostolic Church (Lion of Judah), Iyana Church, Monatan, Ibadan, Oyo State, on Friday afternoon, where the body of the late prophet was committed to mother earth.

According to him, “Christians do not die, but only sleep; flesh and blood may die, but the call of God never dies; the messenger may die, but the message remains forever.” He added that the wife and children of the deceased should not grieve like the heathen do and that members of the church should brace up for better days ahead.

Making reference to the personality of Job and reading from Hebrews chapter 4 in his sermon entitled “The end of a matter is better than the beginning,” chairman of CAC Agbala Itura, Pastor D. A. Olaiya, stated that the late Akinade lived a quality life that impacted on his generation, adding that although he did not own a house of his own, his contributions to better the lives of many people, especially widows while alive, would remain memorable till eternity.

Ministers of God who witnessed the occasion included Pastor Femi Emmanuel of Living Spring International Church, Prophet Oladipupo Joel (a.k.a Sekunderin), Prophet Olabode Odunayo (JP) (Baba Love), Evangelist Tope Alabi  and Yinka Ayefele amongst others.
