Only Full-Time Christians Can Possess The Nations – Apostle Badu Wood Reveals

The Kasoa Area Head of The Church of Pentecost and former General Secretary of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Apostle Ekow Badu Wood, has asked believers to let their Christianity exceed the borders of the church community if they wish to possess the nations for Christ.

“Practicing our faith outside the church is full-time Christianity, and only full-time Christians can possess the nations for Christ,” he said.

Apostle Wood said this on Friday, January 29, 2021, while speaking at the 2021 Ministers and Wives’ Conference (MWC’21 – Greater Accra Region), held at the Pentecost Convention Centre, Gomoa Fetteh. 

In a presentation on the theme, “I Am an Agent of Transformation,” with scripture references from James 1:27 and Romans 12:2, Apostle Wood indicated that the five-year vision of the church, which is ‘Possessing the Nations, I am an Agent of Transformation,’ is very timely and essential, because it encapsulates the entirety of Christianity.

He explained that the church is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. That end, according to him, is for the church to reach the world with the gospel of Christ and bring all to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

“Christianity must not be centered in church; real Christianity begins from Sunday evening after church, when the believer must put into practice what he professed on Sunday morning,” he stressed.

He added: “Let us start practicing our faith from Monday to Saturday at the home, marketplace and everywhere we find ourselves, then we will be agents of transformation,’ and our lives will be living proves of Christ’s saving power and an example to the on looking world. Only then can we possess the nations for Christ.”

He expounded that an agent of transformation is like an ambassador sent to represent the mother nation in another country.

He, therefore, posited that “since no ambassador stays in his own country, as agents of transformation, our works of faith cannot be shown in church alone, but we must demonstrate our faith and belief in God outside the church.”

Citing Luke 10:30-37, Apostle Badu Wood drew lessons from the parable of the Good Samaritan. He noted that, “the priest and the Levite were coming from the place of worship. However, they by-passed the injured man because they did not want to get involved with the world outside their church community,” adding that, “our Christianity must have an impact on the world.”

“The goal of the church is to impact the world. If our Christianity remains in the church and only starts and ends on Sunday, then we are only part-time Christians,” he bemoaned.

“Salt is preserved in containers, but the purpose of salt is to be added to food to season it and make it edible. Therefore, if we are the salt of the earth, we cannot remain in church; we must go into the world and possess the nations for Christ,” he stated.
