The Chairman of the Central Regional Coordinating Committee of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Samuel Yaw Antwi, has asserted that the world needs a true revival, which must start from the Church.
According to Apostle Antwi, who is also the Cape Coast Area Head and Member of the Executive Council of the church, “in our quest to possess the nations as a glorious Church in these times when the whole world is engulfed in pain, darkness and heartache, there is a need for a revival.
“We need a true revival starting from the Church; a renewal of every member which will ultimately spread to the nations; one which would bring about transformations.”
Apostle Antwi said this in his keynote address at the Central Regional session of the 2021 Ministers and Wives’ Conference of the church held at the New Jerusalem Auditorium in Winneba.
He noted that it is only a transformed church that can transform the nations, saying, “The nations of the world are crying out for the manifestation of the children of God who have been revived and transformed to serve as source of light.”
Apostle Samuel Yaw Antwi, therefore, advised ministers and their wives to cry for a revival in their personal lives and in their ministries. “We must get to that point where we are fully submitted to the Lord and seek to be a certain kind of people who have decided to respond to the heavenly call to be beacons of light to the world,” he stated, adding, “The flock of God is looking for leaders who are hungry and thirsty for righteousness; leaders who are frustrated with lukewarm service, but rather constantly yearn for the glory of God; leaders who are ready to eschew all forms of worldliness and leaders who are not satisfied with their present experience of the Lord, but are eager to have a deeper experience daily.”
“I pray that we would genuinely hunger for revival and encounter the fire of God which would revive and transform us. May we be fully aligned to the will of our Lord and Master who has called us to lead His flock in a time such as this, and to possess the nations of the world.”
