The Finance and Administration Director (FAD) of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Lawrence Otu-Nyarko, has urged Christians to have faith in Jesus because His resurrection power has dealt with the past, present and future of humanity.
Apostle Otu-Nyarko, who doubles as the Resident Minister of D.K. Arnan Worship Centre, said this during the climax of the English Zone Easter Convention climax at the Fred Safo Memorial Temple in Nungua Nshorna on Sunday, April 9, 2023.
In his sermon, Apostle Otu-Nyarko explained that the resurrection power of Jesus has dealt with every situation, including ancestral curses. He said that Christians are secured in the Lord because Jesus has power over every situation, stressing that “as believers we live under the law of divine exception.
He buttressed this assertion by citing nine instances in the Bible which saw people raised from the dead.
These include Elijah raising the son of the widow of Zarephath, Elisha raising the son of the Shunamite woman, Elisha’s bones raising the dead, Jesus raising the son of the widow of Nain, Jesus raising the daughter of Jairus, Jesus raising back to life Lazarus, the saints who came back to life during the earthquake after Jesus died, Tabitha who Apostle Peter brought back to life, Eutychus who fell and died during a sermon and was raised back to life by Paul, and the Lord Jesus Christ who resurrected after three days in the tomb.
“For all nine though they came back to life, they died again. Only Jesus arose and came back to life and is alive forever more,” he said, adding: “He took our place to die, he was crucified with two other robbers but even on the cross, he was saving men.”
Apostle Otu-Nyarko assured Christians that the Spirit of God that raised Christ from death is the same that resides in them. This means that they are equipped to bring life into any dead.
“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life, including everything and excluding nothing, divine power is available to us,” he said.
After the sermon, the Resident Minister of PIWC-Graceland, Pastor Felix Okyere Anti, led the congregation in a time of prayer.
