Lead Apostle Benjamin Ohene-Saffo conducted a united service for the Dangme and Osuwem Districts, in Accra Apostle Area, at Luom on Sunday 19th September 2021. Over 370 members attended the divine service with joy as they welcomed the Lead Apostle in their districts.
The Bible text was taken from Philippians 2:10-11: “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”.
In the beginning, the Lead Apostle acknowledged: “It is necessary for us to come to the house of our Heavenly Father regularly and take in that food that would satisfy the soul and lead the soul into the stature of Jesus Christ which is the grace of the Father.”
Who is the God you serve?
Many people boast in different gods, different powers, some have their powers in the creations of God but Apostle John recorded in the book of Revelations that the heavens will be rolled up like a scroll and the mountains and islands will move out of their place. This shows that all powers that are in the creations of God have limitations. Thus in the Old Testament, the power and authority that was given to Moses and the prophets did come to an end.
The Power of God
There is only one power that conquers all, thus the power of God which has been given to our Lord Jesus Christ. On the mount of transfiguration, we have come to know that Christ is the beloved son of God and that we should hear Him. In Matthew 28:18, Jesus made it known to the apostles that God has granted Him all authority in heaven and on earth. When the Lord commissioned His Apostles, He gave them the authority to forgive sins, to preach the word and dispense the sacraments to both the living and the souls in the yonder world.
What then should we do?
Let us worship God in truth and in spirit and also hold the name of Christ high and we shall also be lifted above all things. Lead Apostle Ohene-Saffo advised the congregants not to underestimate the power and authority of the Apostles. “We should always submit ourselves to the teachings of the Apostles”, he concluded.
Bishop Charles Asare, District Rectors: Daniel Owusu (Osuwem District), Richard Adjah (Dagme District), Eric Arhin (Accra West) and Deputy District Rector Kankam (Dagme District) assisted in the service. Some 52 souls were sealed with the Holy Spirit. Seth Nuertey and Ewudzie Yawson Enoch were ordained as Priests. Cabel Kwesi, Dennis Adjokatse, Felix Adjah, Julius Tetteh-Wayo and Ebenezer Narh were ordained as Deacons.
2 Priests and 5 Deacons were ordained to support the work of God in the districts.
Here to Help
After the service, a voluntary Ministers’ Wives Group (Accra) engaged the women and girls on matters regarding menstrual health and hygiene. This is in line with their goal to save the dignity of the New Apostolic Church girl. The participants were schooled on matters of menstrual health and hygiene, sexual misconduct, good morals and ethics. The presentation was led by ministers' wives who are also professionals in these areas. Sanitary pads were distributed to the ladies after the presentation.
