Prophet Uebert Angel as he is affectionately known by his millions of followers wrote a touching and moving message honouring his father who is said to have passed away yesterday.
“Taking time out to remember A GENERAL who just went home to be with the LORD at the age of 80. A man full of the Spirit, my biological father. Though the LORD prepared us way back, the news of your home going still came like a wind of turmoil to our hearts. The impact of it, I can’t tell you now but what you mean to me I can only tell you when we meet again. I will tell you how I could not stand at your grave and weep because I knew you were happy. I will tell you how I could not wait for you to awake because you were not asleep. I could not stand at your grave and cry because I knew what you would have said:
“I am not there, I did not die!” Enjoy your ‘homecoming’ party in heaven, Dad. Jesus is LORD and as Paul said in 1 Cor 15:14 “if there is no resurrection then our faith is useless and our preaching useless” I will see you again!”
Speaking to Onward Christian Radio the TGNC Spokesperson Rikki Dolan said “Prophet Angel is obviously mourning his father but grateful to God for the life fully lived by his father who has gone to be with the Lord at the age of 80. He lived a full life and with clear love for the LORD”
A family member who spoke to Onward Christian Radio spoke fondly of a visit to a holiday resort in Dubai where Prophet Angel met with his parents. “I am comforted when I think of that trip, I remember seeing Prophet Angel with his father and his words on why he had arranged that holiday proved to me that it was a worth farewell.”
The Angel family said in a statement: “Today our beloved father and Grandfather passed away. Anyone who had met him would know what a truly special and kind gentleman he was. We are heartbroken and will miss him terribly, but he is now at peace and in the care of The Lord.”
He was a Father full of Spirit
Pastor Ronnie of TGNC Birmingham told Onward Christian Radio: “We are heartbroken by the news of the death of a General in the faith. Our most sincere condolences go to the Prophet and the entire family. We take comfort in the knowledge that was a Christian who had fully embraced the gospel of the good news of Jesus Christ and was a full age. Though prophet prepared us for this months ago, it surely still a bitter pill to swallow. However we are well aware that death’s sting was removed by Christ and on resurrection morning we shall see him”- www.ocradio.co.za
