Let Your Royalty Reflect God’s Kingdom Values And Principles – Apostle Anane Denteh Charges Chiefs


Chiefs and queens have been charged to rule with the fear of God, by relying on His divine providence so that there will be peace, security and development in the land.

The National Co-ordinator of the Chieftaincy Ministry of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh, gave the admonition at the 3rd Royals’ Conference at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC) on Thursday, June 2, 2022.

This year’s conference was on the theme, “Equipping Royals As Gatekeepers To Possess The Nations” (1 Samuel 18:24-28; Isaiah 21:11; Matthew 13:25-30; Ephesians 5:27). The conference, which took place from 31st May to 3rd June 2022, was attended by over 1,500 chiefs, queens, and other royals from Ghana, Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso.

Speaking on the topic, “The King/Queen As A Priest,” with the main scripture reading from Proverbs 16:10-15, Apostle Anane Denteh, who doubles as the Director of the Pentecost Men’s Ministry (PEMEM) and a member of the Executive Council of the church, indicated that by virtue of the fact that believers are the children of God, they are by default royals.

According to him, Jesus Christ was born a king (Matthew 2:2) as he came into the world preaching about the Kingdom of God. He added that Jesus died as a king (Matthew 27:37). He stated that though the leaders of Israel made frantic efforts to change the narratives, they could not succeed since Pilate intimated that “what was written was written.”

“As long as you follow Jesus Christ consistently, no one can change your kingship. As long as your kingship and kingdom are vested in the Lord Jesus Christ, you are secured because Jesus is the absolute priest and king. He is the Melchizedek (Hebrews 5:5-7; 7:1),” he declared.

Reading from 1 Peter 2:9, the PEMEM Director held that Christ’s kingship has been inputted in all those who believe in him, including traditional rulers, hence they have become kings and priests to their subjects.

“Our kingship was ordained and established by God. Our royalty was activated when we accepted Christ. Our royalty must, therefore, reflect the values and principles of God’s kingdom,” he stressed.

Apostle Anane Denteh explained that since the Lord has made Christians a royal priesthood, it should have a bearing on the way they should live and do things.

“Working as a priest means that you have to stand ready for God. Once priesthood is associated with your kingdom, you have to stand right before God,” he said, adding, “Every king/queen who acts as a priest must be able to protect and care for his/her people like a shepherd.”
