During his weekly online Sunday evening service at Pent TV studios on October 22, 2023, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, urged Christians to tap into the healing and transformative power of Jesus’ name to alleviate suffering and bring hope to the oppressed.
Speaking on the theme, “Jesus healed the woman with blood” – Mark 5:21, Apostle Nyamekye emphasised the need for believers mirroring the compassionate actions of Christ to rescue those ensnared by life’s challenges.
Drawing inspiration from the Scriptures, he changed Christians to immerse themselves in the teachings of Christ, gaining the ability to meet the pressing needs of their generation through the profound wisdom and healing power that Jesus offers. He reminded viewers that Jesus was sent to save, not to condemn.
Apostle Nyamekye referenced the story in Leviticus 15:25 and how a woman in Mark 5:21 sought healing by touching Jesus’s garments.
“This highlights the transformative power of faith and the importance of introducing Jesus to those in need, just as that woman found relief from her ailment,” he said.
Quoting Colossians 1:15ff, he indicated the mightiness of Jesus, encouraging Christians to invoke the name of Jesus to tackle the challenges of their time. He noted that Jesus possesses all knowledge, making everything possible through Him, and that burdens can be lifted by invoking His name.
The Chairman urged believers to introduce Jesus to others as the ultimate answer to today’s problems, stressing that Jesus is the only solution needed for any circumstance.
He further encouraged those burdened by various challenges to emulate the woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5 by having unwavering faith in Jesus, as He has the ability to lift those burdens.
Apostle Nyamekye emphasised that Jesus has the power to heal and liberate everyone, regardless of their circumstances, and called on people to place their burdens in His capable hands.
According to him, the name of Jesus has the power to cast out demons and liberate people from oppression, stressing that Jesus is not only alive but actively working to transform destinies and provide solutions to life’s challenges.
Apostle Eric Nyamekye concluded by encouraging Christians to have faith in Jesus, referencing the story of Jairus’ daughter in the book of Mark chapter 5, where Jesus brought her back to life. He expressed the belief that, by invoking the name of Jesus, Christians can bring life to situations that seem dead and hopeless.
