The National Treasurer of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Rev. Clement Anchebah has said Ghanaians should put their trust in God in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic for God to intervene.
He said Ghanaians, especially Christians should use this as a lesson to stick closely with God, adding that, in times like these, the only hope is God.
Giving a sermon themed “This must be a lesson,” he said, a lot of Ghanaians have relied on material things without putting their trust in God.
Quoting from Mark 8:36, he said, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, but lose his soul?” therefore this is the time people should run to God.
Rev. Anchebah who is also the General Overseer of the Fountain Gate Chapel International, said, money cannot save people from this virus pointing out that, “you could be blessed but do not put your trust in material things.”
He acknowledged that, material things are blessings from God but they should put their trust in God rather than their material things.
“This is the time we need to have a deeper relationship with God, because those who have acquired material things cannot save themselves from this virus,” he advised.
He noted that, if Ghanaians especially Christians would joke with Christ Jesus then they are deceiving themselves.
Jesus, the answer to COVID-19
Urging Ghanaians to put their faith in Christ Jesus he said “we will overcome this pandemic which has crippled numerous of Ghanaians with fears if we have a deeper relationship with Him.”
The revered mentioned that, this is the time churches must support the work of God than any other thing, hence churches must intensify evangelism.
“I see a hopeless world, Presidents who are powerful are even confused, many people are out there who have lost hope,” hence this is the time Christians need to go out there to give them hope.
Encouraging Ghanaians in this trying times, he reads from Psalms 46: 1-10, saying “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble, therefore Ghanaians should not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; but Lord of hosts is with us, he will surely save us from this pandemic.”
The reverend said God will soon speak and this coronavirus will vanish so in difficult times like this, the Country, Ghanaians, Christians and the world should stand still and acknowledge God.
Rev. Anchebah said if Christians did not have time for God, “we should use this opportunity to have time for God, we should now realise that we cannot be delivered by our properties and materials.”
