Jesus Died To Redeem Mankind – Prophet Fred Antwi Declares

Prophet Fred Antwi, the Duayaw Nkwanta Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, has asserted that the death of Jesus on the cross of Calvary was to redeem humankind from the bondage of sin.

He said this in a sermon he delivered during the opening day of the Area’s 2024 Easter Convention at the Methodist School Park in Duayaw Nkwanta in the Ahafo Region of Ghana. His message centered on the theme: “It Is Finished.”

Drawing from John 19:30, which captures the last words of Jesus on the cross, Prophet Fred Antwi emphasised the significance of this declaration.

“When someone says they have finished, it implies the completion of an assigned task. In the case of Jesus Christ, uttering these words signified the fulfillment of His purpose on earth,” he explained.

According to him, despite being only 33 years old, Jesus defied conventional expectations, saying; “His declaration of completion did not come with old age or natural death; instead, He was unjustly killed. The cross, where many saw Him as a sinful figure deserving of death, became the stage for His ultimate sacrifice.”

Prophet Antwi, however, revealed that over the course of three years, Jesus accomplished His mission.

“His purpose extended beyond performing miracles or teaching; it was to bring salvation. The prophecies of Prophet Isaiah foretold His suffering and death, underscoring the divine plan”, he said.

Referencing a quote of the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost in his most recent Circular to the Assemblies, the Duayaw Area Head noted that Easter serves as the foundation of Christianity.

 “Jesus’ declaration of completion—“It is finished”—holds reflective meaning. It signifies His sacrificial death to save humanity from sin. Even if God had granted Him a longer life on earth, His destiny remained unchanged: to die and redeem mankind”, he noted.

According to him, the cross, where Jesus breathed His last, became the bridge between humanity and God’s love.

“Accepting Christ as Lord and personal Saviour unlocks a special package—a gift filled with love and abundant life,” he said.

The Duayaw Nkwanta Area Easter Convention began yesterday, March 29, 2024 and is expected to end on Sunday, March 31, 2024.

Present at the Easter Convention were the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, together with his wife, Mrs. Mary Nyamekye, a cross-section of the Area pastorate and their wives and the entire church populace.
