Our Day Of Pentecost Has Come – Apostle Samuel Obuobi

The General Secretary of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Samuel Gyau Obuobi, has urged church leaders and members to brace themselves for a new move of the Spirit as they observe Pentecost.

According to him, through the “Possessing the Nations” agenda, the Lord is leading the church in a new direction, which is a paradigm shift from establishing homogenous churches to multinational, multiracial, and multicultural churches.

Apostle Obuobi shared these insights today when he presented a paper on the topic “Building a Multinational, Multiracial, and Multicultural Church” at the Pentecost 2024 Conference at the Rudolf Weber Arena in Oberhausen, Germany.

In his presentation, Apostle Obuobi asserted that God’s method has always been from one to many. He explained that God chose Abraham, through whom He raised the nation of Israel to serve as a conduit to reach out to the entire world. He noted that God began with a homogenous people, but on the day of Pentecost, when the Spirit came, He empowered the disciples to evangelize to the diverse people who had come to observe Pentecost, resulting in over 3000 people from all over the world turning to the Lord.

Apostle Obuobi drew a parallel between Israel and The Church of Pentecost, explaining that just as God called James McKeown to start a homogenous church in the Gold Coast (now Ghana), He is now moving the church towards a more inclusive model.

“The Church started as a homogenous church, but in recent times, we can observe God’s hand silently guiding the whole church towards establishing multicultural, multiracial, and multinational churches,” he said.

He emphasised that The Church of Pentecost has flourished by establishing homogenous churches, but God is redirecting it, asserting, “Our day of Pentecost has come.”

He added, “I see this conference and its name – Pentecost 2024 – to be divine. For there is going to be a mighty shakeup and revival from here to go possess the world.”

Apostle Obuobi highlighted the City Church concept as one of the models that has emerged in this regard.

He described the city church as an all-embracing church that, through high service standards, takes the gospel to the cities and possesses them for the Lord.

Despite possible challenges in implementing the city church concept, such as diverse cultural expectations, he noted that the multicultural church holds great potential for the church.

He pointed out that the diversity in heaven, which hosts the Trinity, four living elders, and angels, is a good justification for establishing multicultural, multiracial, and multinational churches.

“If there is diversity in heaven, why can’t there be diversity in the church?” he quizzed.

Apostle Obuobi also stressed that Jesus died for every race, and for this reason, every race has a place in God’s church.

He concluded by stating that diversity ensures great potential for the church, highlighting that “No single-race church can save the world.”
