On Sunday, 8th November 2020, Lead Apostle Benjamin Ohene-Saffo officiated a divine service at the New Apostolic Church, Kade District. Apostle Andrews Boakye, District Rector Samuel Brenya and Deputy District Rector Andrews Dogbatse assisted the Lead Apostle.
The text word for the divine service was read from 1 Thessalonians 3:12-13, “And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.”
In his introductory remarks, Lead Apostle Benjamin Ohene-Saffo expressed his excitement for his first visit to the people of Kade District. The congregation was encouraged not to fall for any other form of doctrine aside the New Apostolic Church, including those who only believe in the prophets of the Old Testament. “Beloved Moses and Isaiah were there when God revealed to the whole world that Jesus Christ is His Beloved Son and He is the Only One the world should listen to. So now you know there is no benefit in neglecting the teachings of Jesus Christ, since God did not mention either Moses or Isaiah”
“According to Matthew 22:37-40, the only truth about believing in Jesus Christ and no other prophets was revealed. All commandments have been summarized to ‘loving your Lord God with all your heart, body and mind’ and ‘loving your neighbour as yourself’. So beloved, let no man deceive you. It is even said in the Bible that the commandments was given to Moses but grace and truth was by Jesus Christ.” Lead Apostle took time to make the congregation understand why Jesus Christ and the New Apostolic doctrine is the only way to salvation.
Let Love Lead
“Do you have Love?” the Lead Apostle quizzed. “Beloved the end time is what we as believers should prioritize because it is the most dangerous thing since its occurrence is not known by anyone.” He encouraged the congregation to refrain from things that will make our love for God and neighbours questionable.
Lead Apostle Ohene-Saffo encouraged the congregation to keep striving and toiling towards the return of Jesus. He encouraged the congregants to change from their old ways and live by the Apostles’ doctrine so that they can be counted among those chosen by grace to dwell in the Kingdom of God.
