The Head Pastor of the Revival Restoration Centre Assemblies of God, Apostle Dr. Alex Kweku Nkrumah, has blamed pastors for not teaching church members the truth and rooting them in the word of God.
He said, when members are fed with the right word of God, they would be rooted in God and not run after fake miracles.
“We have pastors who preach unbelieving messages to believers so the believers do not grow in the word of God,” he noted.
Miracles Reside in Believers
Apostle Nkrumah in an interview with GPCC NEWS, stated that, miracles are part of the gospel but the miracles reside in the believers who are truly born again.
According to him, if someone is a believer who jumps from one church to another for miracles then the person is not born again.
He noted “Jesus said these signs would follow those who believe in me. Therefore, if you are a believer you should rather go cast out demons from those unbelievers. That is what we read in the book of Acts.”
Apostle Nkrumah pointed out that, “If you are believer and still they are casting out demons from you then you are not born again.”
This is why, he said, many Christians move from one church to another seeking miracles rather than seeking the basic message of God.
Quoting from Mathew 15: 8 ‘These people honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me,” he said, he was not surprised at the attitude of these Christians, because they are Christians by mouth not heart.
The man of God underscored the need for Pastors to make the word of God plain to the members who are believers so that they would have so much confidence in themselves so that they can cast out demons in the name of Jesus.If pastors do not teach them, he said, they would run after people who they think could do it for them.
Pastors have failed
Apostle Nkrumah bemoaned that, Pastors are not doing a good work to a large extent, so “I do not blame church members running away from one church to another, because Christ has given some to be Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers to equip the believers for the work of the ministry”.
“So if the pastors are not equipping them, then they go somewhere and at the same time there are some people who will also not yield to the true teaching of God will also go somewhere,” Apostle Nkrumah indicated.
Advising Christians, the man of God urged Christians to sit down and get more time to study the word of God so that, Pastors would not throw dust into their eyes.
He said, God would be happy in heaven to know His children are well equipped with the word of God.
