The Effiduase Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Stephen Okyere Acheampong, has admonished Christians to reposition themselves for the imminent second coming of Jesus Christ.
Speaking on the Resurrection Sunday [April 9, 2023] to climax this year’s Easter Convention of the Effiduase Zone of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Acheampong, who had his sermon titled, “Jesus, The Son of God is Coming Again” (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10; 2:19; Acts 1:11; Hebrews 9:28), stated: “Jesus has been here before to bear the sins of the world and will come back with salvation for all who are eagerly waiting for him.”
He said that the second coming of Christ is so important that it has been established as one of the foundations of Christianity as most churches preach about it and many songs are composed about it to remind Christians of it.
According to the Effiduase Area Head, Jesus is the only one qualified to be the Saviour of the world because of his deity, virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death, resurrection, ascension, abiding intersession and second coming to judge the living and the dead, saying, “This is the bedrock of our faith.”
On what to do while waiting for Christ’s second coming, Pastor Acheampong encouraged Christians to reposition themselves by showing unalloyed love, devotion and commitment to God and the thing of God; wholeheartedly do God’s work without complaining to store up treasures in heaven; live by the word of God, not what men say; lead holy life by shunning evil; help one another; spread the good news about Jesus and his salvation; ensure that they and their families will not be left out; help and support the work of God, and love and desire his coming.
Present to grace the service were the New Juaben North Municipal Chief Executive, Hon. Comfort Asante, and the Chief of Asokore, Nana Antwi Panyin II.
