The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has said that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is divine proof of the salvation of believers in God.
“This is the reason why Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, no one can come to the Father, except through Him.”
The Chairman said this on Sunday, April 2023, during the Resurrection Sunday service to climax the Berekum Area Easter convention held at the Omanhene Park in Berekum.
Delivering the sermon on, “Always Remember That Jesus Christ, A Descendant of David Was Raised From the Dead,” he mentioned that the knowledge that Jesus Christ, a descendant of David, was raised from the dead is the truth of the gospel which is centered on Jesus.
Reading 2 Timothy 2:8, he explained that Paul sought to convey to Timothy the fact that the resurrection of Christ is the foundation of Christianity and the Christian ministry; the sustaining power of the ministry and the Christian life, and the cause of effective ministry and Christianity.
“Jesus is not the founder of Christianity but the Saviour of the world. This very act of the resurrection sets Him apart from every other religious guru and makes Christianity an exclusive religion,” Apostle Nyamelye stated.
Apostle Nyamekye, who is also the President of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), said the fact that Jesus was a descendant of King David means “we are not committed to a theory or a course but to a person, Jesus Christ.”
He advised Christians to talk to God in their moments of trouble, confusion and difficulties because Jesus has been raised from the dead. He added that Jesus’ resurrection makes the Christian’s faith in God not futile, saying, “As Jesus was raised from death so shall we also be raised at His appearing. His resurrection ushered us into the things of God – unto a new and powerful life.”
He concluded: “The resurrection of Jesus has given us the strength to persevere and be confident of His provision and authority to deal effectively with the power of darkness.”
