Glory and Hope Ministries International has organised a programme to re-unite family and friends as effort to fulfill the word of God concerning the family.
The Programme dubbed “Family and Friends Feast” is to break any spiritual curse upon families and restore the blessings God has bestowed unto the family through the word of God.
Speaking on the theme: “Changing your family by the word”, the General Overseer of Glory and Hope Ministries International, Apostle Sampson Adjei Berko said some families were cursed years ago through certain things that their fore fathers or ancestors did which have brought curses upon their lives as individuals and families.
The Apostle said prayers and the word of God could turn all curses into blessings and encouraged the congregation to pray fervently for their families, pronouncing good things upon their lives.
“If someone said something evil upon the family, we are also going to pronounce blessings upon the family. Some families find themselves in bondage and spiritual chains, but there is power in the word of God to break every chain or bondage”, the Man of God said.
Relating this to Jacob in the bible, he mentioned that, no one blessed Jacob’s children, but Jacob did that by himself, therefore every parent has that power to bless their children.
Apostle Adjei Berko made all the parents bless their children by decreeing words of blessing upon their lives based on the word of God.
Touching on how some families have been destroyed due to their busy schedules, Apostle Berko pointed out that, in this contemporary world families do not get time to do morning devotion because, parents are always busy with their jobs or businesses.
Apostle Berko said this situation has destroyed the lives of innocent children because their friends have influenced them into drugs, prostitution and armed robbery among other deviant behaviours.
He stressed that, all these would not have happened if parents paid particular attention to their children and trained them with the word of God.
“Many people have been influenced by friends to indulge in deviant behaviours because their parents did not pay attention to them and left them for the society to train,” he said.
The Path of God
Apostle Berko who is a member of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) noted that, without Christ no family would be able to stand the challenges of the times hence the call to seek the face of God at the family and friends gathering.
“Any family which does not know Christ should seek the face of God and walk on the path of God so that the family can prosper,” he advised.
According to him Christian couples have a calling upon their lives first as individuals but also as a family unit to fulfil their specific calling on earth together by purposefully living every moment of their lives with their calling in mind.
Therefore, he said it is very paramount to bring the family together to know their core mandate and also pray for themselves, believing that through the word of God they could break any curse upon the family so they would be delivered to do what they have been called to do.
Advising Christians, Apostle Berko urged them to practice what is in the bible and walk according to the path of God because “in every office there is a Christian there so if all Christians would live exemplary lives, there would not be corruption in the country and there would be a total transformation.”
The colourful service, which was held at the church auditorium, brought together church members and guests from far and near to have a supernatural encounter with God.
