God Is Interested In Chieftaincy And Tradition – Apostle Oboubi Reveals

The General Secretary of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Samuel Gyau Oboubi, has revealed that God has a genuine interest in the chieftaincy institution and tradition.

Apostle Oboubi said this during the Royals Day Service organised by the Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC)-Atomic, in Accra on Sunday, June 9, 2024.

Speaking on the topic, ‘Royals unleashed to transform the spheres’ the General Secretary indicated that God is interested in every aspect of the lives of his children, including chieftaincy and that God expects all kings, queens and traditional rulers to be present in the New Jerusalem with their splendor (Revelation 21).

Apostle Oboubi emphasised that Christians as representatives of God on earth must be interested in everything that God is interested in, including kingship and traditional rulership.

He explained that children of God are called to transform their world, irrespective of their status and standing in society. He, therefore, called on all children of God who are kings, queens and royals to transform their areas of authority, stressing that they have a duty to cause positive change in their spheres, which is their areas of jurisdiction.

According to the General Secretary, traditional leadership is not just about carrying titles, but it involves causing positive change. Adding that it is also not just about amassing wealth but making impact.

Painting a picture of God’s interest in traditional rulership and leadership in general, the chief scribe of The Church of Pentecost explained that as captured in Deuteronomy 17:16-20, when God took the Israelites out of Egypt and was leading them to Canaan, he knew they would demand a king one day and being all-knowing, God told them 400 years ahead how their kings should behave and expect of them.

Apostle Oboubi pointed out that three things God does not expect royals to do are that they should not be full of pride and overly display power, not to have so much desire for women and not wrongly desire and lust for money, because it will lead them to engage in extreme acts.

He, however, mentioned that God expects royals and leaders to be people of the word of God, keep the Bible and read it every day.

Torgbui Adzonugaga Ameya Fiti, Paramount Chief and President of the Aflao Traditional Council, was present as the Guest of Honour, as well as other divisional and sun-chiefs from various traditional areas in Ghana.

Also present at the service were Apostle Dr B. G. Kumi-Woode (Director of Religious Affairs, Ghana Armed Forces), Apostle John Obeng Kesse (Suame Area Head and his wife), Apostle William Boakye Agyarko (Haatso Area Head) and Apostle Antony Mensah, the Resident Minister.
