God Himself Will Connect The Dots – Apostle Kumi-Larbi Assures Christians

The outgoing General Secretary of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, has admonished Christians never to give up but to strive to be better each year, for God Himself will come through for them.

Apostle Kumi-Larbi said this on Thursday, August 31, 2023, during his last official engagement with the Staff and Management of the church’s Headquarters at La, Accra.

Apostle Kumi-Larbi takes a new role as Area Head for Ashaiman after serving as the chief scribe of the church and head of administration at the headquarters for the past ten years.

Speaking on the topic, “Divine Protocol – God’s Mercy, Grace and Favour,” the outgoing General Secretary noted that Christians have been privileged with divine protocol, which comes about after Christ has come into their lives.

He emphasised that God, in His divine wisdom, orchestrates events and connections in remarkable ways for those who trust in Him.

He noted that divine protocol emerges through a personal relationship with Christ, adding, “Divine protocol operates beyond the confines of worldly norms, as God follows His own distinct path in guiding His believers.”

Basing his sermon on scripture references from Psalm 37:23-26; 2 Samuel 9:1-13, 16:1-4, 19:24-30, and 2 Corinthians 12:1-10, Apostle Kumi-Larbi shared lessons from the stories of David and Saul. He emphasised the importance of maintaining relationships, respecting new leaders, and acknowledging the transformative power of encountering Jesus Christ.

Apostle Kumi-Larbi explained that mercy involves God’s compassion, kindness, and forgiveness for shortcomings, while grace empowers believers to embody virtuous qualities. 

He encouraged believers to seek God’s abundant grace and mercy, assuring them that these attributes transcend past mistakes and negative actions.

Referencing John 10:10, he reassured Christians that God’s protection shields them from harm, and they should embrace each new year with a sense of renewal and progression. 

He cited Hebrews 4:16, emphasising that approaching God’s throne of grace with confidence leads to receiving mercy and grace during times of need.

Apostle Kumi-Larbi urged believers not to underestimate life’s challenges but to entrust everything to God, especially in times of need. 

He emphasised that divine protocol encompasses God’s grace, favour, and mercy, and it aligns individuals with their unique paths.

Summing up his message, Apostle Kumi-Larbi shared profound insights learned from life’s journey:

1. God may use challenges and adversity for His higher purpose, even when it seems like life’s progression is delayed.

2. God’s responses to prayers are rooted in His sovereign will, reflecting His profound concern for His children’s growth.

3. The Christian journey involves navigating difficulties, but relying on God’s ways produces a beautiful result.

Apostle Dr. Philip Osei-Korsah, Director of the Counselling Ministry of the Church, extended gratitude to the outgoing General Secretary on behalf of the Staff and Management. 

“We want to celebrate the goodness of God in your life. We say a big thank you to God. You have served the Headquarters and the Church for the past ten years, and the grace has been sufficient,” he said.

Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi was called into the full-time ministry of The Church of Pentecost in 1999 and has since served as District Minister for Kojokrom, Awoshie and Michel Camp districts. He was appointed an Area Head in 2011 and was responsible for the Asamankese Area. 

He was called into the Office of Apostle in 2013 and elected General Secretary in 2013.
