Historic Pentecost 2024 Conference Takes Off In Germany

The biggest Pentecostal gathering is taking place in the city of Oberhausen, Germany with about 4,000 participants from the world over expected in attendance.

The historic event officially began on Wednesday night, May 15, 2024, at the Rudolf Weber Arena, Oberhausen.

The power-pack, spirit-filled and electrifying event, which is expected to end on Saturday morning, May 18, 2024, is under the theme: ‘A People of God Unleashed to Transform Their World’ – 1 Peter 2:9, Acts 1:8.

The opening session of the maiden Pentecost 2024 event welcomed participants from the host country, Germany, as well as from the Netherlands, US, UK, Australia, China, South Korea, and a massive delegation from Ghana, where the Church is headquartered.

The session began with soul-lifting song ministrations and worship led by the venerable Pastor John Angoh and the Pentecost 2024 Mass choir. Renowned gospel musician from Nigeria, Sunmisola, also graced the stage and led participants through a time of soothing gospel songs to set the stage for the word ministration by the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye.

Opening the conference with a powerful sermon, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost and President of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), gave a hint that the Pentecost 2024 is a dress rehearsal of Pentecost 2026, which would be more mega than the maiden one.

Speaking on the topic, ‘The Church in God’s Plan of Redemption’ with the anchor scripture taken from Genesis 12:1-3.

Tracing the origin of the Israelite people and why God selected them as His own, Apostle Nyamekye revealed that God specifically chose them to show His glory to the rest of the world, though the whole world is for God.

He indicated that out of Israel came the Messiah of the world, Jesus Christ, who came with the new order, the Church.

According to him, sometimes people think that Israel failed God, but that is not the case, saying, ‘Once God chooses you, He will not allow you to fail.’

He explained that in the mind of God what will bring redemption is the seed from the womb of the woman. Once Israel produced the Messiah, Israel’s work is finished.

Chairman Nyamekye pointed out that with the coming of Christ the old order (Jews and the Gentiles) has been rendered obsolete, there is a new order (the Church).

Further reading from Romans 10:9-11, he said that with the new order there is no difference Jews and Gentiles, since God is bringing all people from various races together in Christ, saying, ‘It doesn’t matter whether you are rich or poor, white or black, anyone who calls on the name of Jesus will be saved.’

He stated that the Church is a mystery that has been revealed to the world. It is the most powerful institution on the earth, being the extension of the family of God in heaven.

‘The Church now takes the position of Israel,’ he said, adding, ‘Through us (the Church), the world will be blessed.’

The International Missions Director of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Emmanuel Agyemang Bekoe, led the participant in a time of trilling prayers after the sermon.

After a night filled with inspiring music, powerful word ministrations, and intense prayers, the Pentecost 2024 conference is expected to kickstart a global revival as it coincides with the celebration of Pentecost Week, 50 days after the commemoration of Easter.
