God Is Preparing A Special Kind Of People – Apostle David Tekper

The Achimota Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle David Tettey Tekper, has indicated that God’s goal for instituting the church is to prepare a special kind of people for Himself, holy and unblemished, who will serve as His ambassadors on earth to manifest/reflect His glory among the nations.

The former Executive Council Member of the Church made this assertion during a presentation on Tuesday, January 26, 2021, at the Greater-Accra Regional session of the ongoing Ministers and Wives’ Conference at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh.

Speaking on the topic, “The Goal of the Church,” with Ephesians 5:22-27, 2 Corinthians 11:2 & 4, Ephesians 1:4 and Exodus 19, as scripture references, among others, Apostle Tekper stressed that the Lord is a God of purpose because there is always a reason for everything He does.

According to him, right from the beginning of creation, God gave a clear indication that His goal for creating humankind was to have a deeper relationship with them. This, Apostle Tekper said, has always been God’s desire and it is evident throughout His interventions and dealings with humankind.

In his presentation, the Achimota Area Head defined a goal as “an end towards which efforts are directed.” He explained that the efforts and activities directed toward the goal serve as the groundwork (preparation) for its attainment. In this sense, God chose Christians to prepare them to be holy and blameless so that through them His glory would be manifested in the world, thereby leading many to be reconciled with Him.

Expounding further on the goal of the church, Apostle Tekper revealed that the Church of God (the Church Universal) is meant to be a Militant Church – that is, one that is always at warfare with the enemy of God (devil) and his cohorts, who are determined to stall the realisation of God’s intended goal for the church.

“We are at warfare as victorious people because Jesus, our captain, has already won the battle. So, we are not fighting a ‘lose-battle,’ but a victorious one,” he said, stressing that, “We must, therefore, fight with the mindset that we are already victorious.”

Apostle Tekper further noted that believers, who form the Church of God, need to be constantly revived to meet the goal for which it was instituted by God. He said that through revival, the church would not only be rekindled to work towards becoming a glorious one but be equipped to prevail against the “Gates of Hell.”

Apostle Tekper, therefore, urged believers to avail themselves for the continuous touch of God (revival) through a consistent prayer life, the study of the Bible and obedience to God’s word, bearing in mind that they are a special kind of people called to bring honour and glory to the Lord in the world.
