Written by | May 5, 2018 | 0
Pastor Edwin Michael, a minister of the Elim Pentecostal Churches, United Kingdom, has entreated believers to abide in the presence of God and His basic message. Speaking on the subject, “Abiding in Christ,” on the second day of the 43rd General Council Meetings of The Church of Pentecost at the Pentecost Convention Centre, Gomoa Fetteh, Pastor Edwin Michael admonished all to yearn to have a close relationship with Christ. Reading from John 15:1, he said that the Parable of the Vineyard is an extreme passage for believers and churches and for that reason the branches which represented the church must be attached to the vineyard (Jesus Christ) if they want to bear fruits. “The Holy Spirit says something like this to get our attention as believers. As believers and branches, we have the

Dr Lawrence Tetteh, a renowned International Evangelist, on Sunday urged Ghanaians to use the Easter festivities to reconcile with one another. He said the whole essence of Easter was that Jesus Christ died to reconnect mankind to God; declaring that “the shedding of the blood that he did was very important to reconnect every one of us back to God.” Dr Tetteh who was speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Accra said: “If there is anything that will push Ghana forward, it is unity and reconciliation”. He noted that “regardless of our political colours, and our different ideologies, we need to reconcile. “Regardless of our political divide and our party colours, we should find a place in our hearts to reconcile our nation.” He said reconciliation was the essence

The United Denominations originating from the Lighthouse Group of Churches led by Bishop Dag Heward-Mills pulled what is arguably the largest crowd at the Independence Square at their Good Friday Church Services. The service, dubbed the ‘Good Friday Miracle Service’, is the fourth in a series since the LCI initiated the annual programme in 2015.Hundreds of buses drove in hundreds of thousands of people from all over the capital city and elsewhere for the massive service, which was both solemn and joyful, packed with power, healing, miracles, worship, dance and songs in gratitude to Jesus for his death on the cross. It was a sea of red, black and white at the square as members were joined by family and friends to give praise to God for sending Jesus to come die for “our” sins.The

Let your lifestyle explain Easter to unbelievers – Apostle Mike Etrue

Written by | March 30, 2018 | 0
An Apostle with the Church of Pentecost, Mike Kwame Etrue, has said the value of Christ’s death can best be communicated through lifestyle changes and not theology. “The truth is that, it takes our lifestyle or public life to give meaning to others about the Jesus we have encountered” he preached to youths at the Pentecost International Worship Center at Kaneshie in Accra. The Kaneshie Area head who supervises 89 churches (assemblies, worship centers) said the message of God’s reconciliation with man can be communicated in three ways. In his Good Friday message, Apostle Mike Etrue mentioned the sharing of the gospel either verbally or virtually and the financing of the gospel. But the third, he stressed, is for Christians to ‘let their light shine before men’

The meaning of Good Friday

Written by | March 30, 2018 | 0
Easter is a festival celebrated every year by millions of Christians across the globe as well as majority of Ghanaians who are also Christians. Christians, as a result of their honour for the death, burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus, whom they believe is their Lord and Saviour would not miss it for anything. It is marked from Friday, through to Sunday. The Friday is known as “Good Friday,” followed by the “Holy Saturday” and the Resurrection Sunday. Whilst some mark it with church activities, others observe it by going to the beaches, travelling from all over the country to Kwawu of the Eastern region to take part in events such as paragliding, sports competition, among others.  

The death of Christ still relevant – Apostle Opoku Onyinah

Written by | March 30, 2018 | 0
The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah has reiterated the relevance of the death of Christ. According to him, the power of the resurrection still mediates for Christians who seek favour from God. Easter is the most important and oldest festival of the Christian Church, celebrating the resurrection of Christ between 21 March and 25 April.  The New Testament states that the resurrection of Jesus, which Easter celebrates, is a foundation of the Christian faith. Easter is linked to Passover and the Exodus from Egypt recorded in the Old Testament through the Last Supper, sufferings, and crucifixion of Jesus that preceded the resurrection. But many believe the resurrection is just a Bible story which should not be given any attention. However, on Adom

Easter is believed to be a Christian festival which marks the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As ironic as it may seem, this festival hasn’t been a preserve of only Christians in recent years as many people join in the celebration. Every festival in Ghana no matter the history behind it is celebrated with fun fair and excitement with Easter being no exception. Easter is usually accompanied by a long weekend with Good Friday and Easter Mondaysandwiching the Holy Saturday and Resurrection Sunday. The long weekend gives many people the rare opportunity to take time away from their regular activities and spend quality time with friends and family. A brief time of the year when school and work are put on hold. For many, travelling is the best option as they easily get tired of their

A King had to die

Written by | March 27, 2018 | 0
Filthy and poor me! What could I have become if not for the support of others? My burden has been made light because of the friends I have. Many of these friends have stood solidly behind me in times of need. Some of them, irrespective of their faith are nonpareil. Good friends are difficult to find. Some come to our lives as small devils to spur us on. Their bickering, bigotry, criticism, deceit, and disappointments help mature us in the University of Life. Others offer us consolidating, unfailing and priceless support at times we would have despaired without them. I call them, ‘Mortal Angels’. Permit me to share the exceptional love I received from a king. In a time when kings and leaders of the world draw strength from tormenting and sucking dry the blood of their subjects, I had a friend

Are you cooking from the recipe for misery?

Written by | March 22, 2018 | 0
BIBLE MEDITATION: “…remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35 DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Unhappiness comes from mirrors. Happiness comes from windows. If you want to be miserable, then think about yourself first…what you want, what people are saying about you, what you ought to have done for you, how down you feel, how good you feel. Just focus on yourself. Feeling good yet? If you are, then something is wrong. Selfishness and happiness just don’t go hand in hand. If you are thinking it is better to receive than to give, you’ll never be happy. You’ll never experience the blessing of giving that Jesus taught. ACTION POINT: Hold out your hand and make a fist for at least one minute. Now, relax. Which feels

Did God Abandon Jesus on the Cross? Billy Graham Answers

Written by | March 2, 2018 | 0
Q. What did Jesus mean when He said somewhere that God had abandoned Him? This has always puzzled me, because if Jesus was actually the Son of God, then how could God abandon Him? A. You’re referring to some of Jesus’ last recorded words, spoken while He was dying on the cross. The Bible says that He “cried out in a loud voice … ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’” (Mark 15:34). What did He mean by this? Was He suddenly filled with doubt, wondering if He had misunderstood the mission God had given Him? Or was He filled with despair, concluding He was a failure and all His work was in vain? After all (some have said), the crowds had turned against Him, and seemingly His ministry had come to an abrupt end. But in reality His words point to something far different.
