Apostle Ntumy: The Man Greatly Loved

The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost and President of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has eulogised the Late Apostle Dr Micheal Kwabena Ntumy, describing him as “a man that Heaven greatly loved.”

Delivering a sermon titled “A Man Greatly Loved” at the memorial service for Apostle Ntumy, former Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, at the Forecourt of the State House on Saturday, February 24, 2024, Apostle Nyamekye said: “There was, and there is something between God and Apostle Dr Michael Kwabena Ntumy that we may not understand. But we can say that Heaven loved and loves him; he was and is precious to God.

“Chairman Ntumy was a wonder. He was a wonderful, surprising sign of what God can do. He was greatly loved by The Church of Pentecost.”

Using Prophet Daniel in the Bible as a case study, Chairman Nyamekye emphasised how the Angel Gabriel in the book of Daniel Chapter 9:22-23 and the Angel who came to interpret God’s revelation to Daniel in Daniel 10:10-11 all described the prophet as “Man greatly loved.”

According to him, the angels called Daniel so due to their observation of how Heaven saw and treated him.

Apostle Nyamekye clarified that neither Prophet Daniel’s ability to make great kings and queens bow before God, his great wisdom, strong prayer life, purity, and all other qualities were the reasons Heaven loved him.

However, he believes that God loved Daniel because of his righteousness.

Eulogising the life of Apostle Dr Michael Ntumy, Chairman Eric Nyamekye spoke about how the former Chairman refused to return to Ghana during the war in Liberia on the request of the then Executive Council of the church but chose to put his life on the line for God’s work.

Considering this and the several challenges Apostle Ntumy went through, including surviving multiple accidents, 18 surgeries in 15 years as well as two deliberate food poison attempts on his life, Apostle Eric Nyamekye drew a conclusion that the late Apostle Ntumy loved God and his work, making God also loving him exceptionally.

He stated: “The fact that God loves a person does not insulate him from human predicaments.”

Apostle Ntumy’s memorial service was graced by many prominent persons in Ghana and beyond, including the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E. Dr Mahmud Bawumia, Former President John Dramani Mahama, the Chief of Staff, Hon. Akosua Frema Osei Opara, Ministers of State and Members of Parliament, heads of Churches and para-church organisations, the members of the Church’s Executive Council, the former Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah, among others.
