The 1st Vice President of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) Rev Sam Korankye Ankrah has urged Christians to buy and read the Holy Bible in order to defeat the devil when they are attacked.
According to him, the devil is not afraid of the electronic bible because it is not holy, and asked Christians to get closer to their Holy Bible at all times.
Speaking at the World Movers Generation Service, he said, “These days you don’t have Bibles so you must get Bible by your bed side because, if we read from the phone it will not work, if you read from the tablet it will not work because, they fear Bibles not tablets and phones.”
Read your Bible
Rev Ankrah who is also the General Overseer of the Royalhouse Chapel International pointed out that, sometimes Christians are not able to get to the word of God when they are attacked because their phone and tablet batteries may be dead.
“How many times do you read the Bible on the phone versus the messages from WhatsApp, Snap chat, Instagram, Twitter among other social media apps. Even the bible on the phone you don’t get time reading it, rather you use it for other things which makes the battery die. Now, when the devil is attacking you, the phone is off,” he emphasised.
Apostle General explained “Get a proper Bible, read it day and night, doing that, when the devil comes shout the Bible at the devil”, he urged.
Touching on why the devil attacks Christians, the man of God mentioned that, the devils gather to plan on how to destroy lives, God’s plan and purpose on this earth.
“They will cut off God’s plan and purpose of your life so that you will be a fool walking on the street with a wasted life, wasted years drinking to die, smoke until you get crazy,” he said.
According to him, the devil could sense someone’s greatness and God-giving talent, therefore they gather to stop the next level of people’s advancement in life.
“Any time that your life is going through struggle, it is because the unseen world has seen where you are going,” he mentioned.
With regards to that, Rev Ankrah noted “let the battle you are going through wake you up to seriousness, goodliness, and start to sharpen your life to order because, “They have seen what you have not seen, but don’t allow the devil to tell you who you are because, the bible has already told us who we are. We are beautifully and wonderfully crafted in the image of God.”
