The Twifo Praso Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle David Nii Addo-Pappoe, has stated Jesus Christ came into the world to bridge the gap between divinity and humanity which was created as a result of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden.
He posited that God’s plan to send His Son into the world to save humanity was advanced when Adam and Eve disobeyed Him in the garden.
According to him, God gave a word of hope to the first man and woman that, the seed of the woman will crush the head of the serpent and that the serpent will also strike the heel of the seed of the woman.
“In God’s appointed time, He sent forth His Son Jesus Christ into the world in order to bring humanity back into His very presence, thereby bridging the gap between divinity and humanity,” he stressed.
Apostle Addo-Pappoe said this in a sermon during the Wassa Ateiku District Christmas convention which took place from 21st to 25th December 2022 at Wassa Ateiku Community Centre, under the theme: “God Became One of Us to Possess The Nations,” (Matt. 1:23). Other speakers included the District Minister, Pastor Paul Yaw Mensa and Apostle Joseph Albert Mensah (Rtd) – guest speaker.
Reading from Luke 2:8-14, Apostle Nii Addo-Pappoe further explained that the birth of Jesus Christ is very significant due it its numerous benefits.
He explained that through the birth of Jesus Christ, God has brought light into the world to show humanity the way back to Himself, saying, “Those who believe in His Son will never walk in darkness because Jesus is the Light of the world.”
The Twifo Praso Area Head further stated that Jesus has become the mediator between humans and God, and that He always intercedes on their behalf.
He concluded that God has made a provision for His free gift of salvation through the perfect sacrifice of His Son.
“God has given you the assurance of your salvation through His Son who dwells in you. Christ in you is the hope of glory,” he said, adding, “No matter the circumstance you may go through, be rest assured that since you have accepted Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you are more than a conqueror.”
