The founder and Senior pastor in charge of Christ Reconciliation World Ministry, Agbonchia, Pastor Godpower Charles Eppie and wife has been consecrated as an Apostle amidst pomp and pageantry witnessed by family, friends, church members and well-wishers.
The event which took place at the Redeemed Prophetic Mission Inc., East/West Road, opposite Jephthah Comprehensive College, Uniport Road, Port Harcourt, attracted dignitaries from far and near which include Supreme Archbishop Emmanuel O. Powerson, Bishop David Moses from Osun State, Bishop Ikiedemhe A. Sunday, Oyo State, Bishop Donaldo Yewande, Bishop Emmanuel C. Sabastine, Rivers State, Deacon (Barr.) Churchill N. Wosu among other anointed men of God.
In a sermon at the church service, the guest speaker, Bishop David Moses who doubles as the Osun State Global Congress of Bishops and Apostles took his text from Genesis 4: 1-5, where he talked about the unworthy gift Cain presented to God as an offering which God rejected. He also encouraged and charged all the newly ordained Apostles to always do the right thing so as to attract the blessing of God.
The guest speaker also said that Adam and Eve started suffering when they failed to do the right things. He further extolled the generous nature of the apostles.
Hear him: “When Adam and Eve were put in the Garden of Eden, God said they should eat all the fruits in the garden but there was one in the middle of the garden that God said don’t eat, because if you eat it, you will die. But Adam and Eve left the right thing God instructed them and they went to eat the middle fruit and immediately they failed to do the right thing they started suffering.
“God also rejected the offering of Cain because he did not offer the right sacrifice. What God want to see in every sacrifice is love. Cain did his sacrifice in his own way and not in the ways of the Lord. These newly consecrated Apostles are very generous and I want them to always do the right things. Many churches are doing things today but they are not doing it in the right way.
“People preach the gospel, but they are not preaching the right things, even people come to church but they are not coming to church at the right time. In anything we do, let us try and do it right”.
In his speech, Supreme Archbishop Emmanuel O. Powerson urged the newly ordained Apostles to remain faithful to the gospel of the Lord and make a difference as far as the gospel and ministerial calling is concerned. He also encouraged them to hold onto Jesus Christ who is the author and finisher of their faith.
In an interview with Inside Eleme at the reception venue at Christ Reconciliatory World Deliverance Ministry, Agbonchia Eleme, Pastor Godpower Charles Eppie expressed appreciation to the Lord, friends, relations, brethren in the Lord and everybody who came to honour him.He also said the Apostolic fire will start manifesting in his church, community and in the life of people around him.
His word: “Today is a day that has been set by God for the consecration of Apostles, so today the Supreme Archbishop Emmanuel O. Powerson, the Presiding Prelate of Global Congress of Bishops and Apostles, a man with double mantle has consecrated me as an Apostle of Christ and I feel so highly honoured by the Lord, friends, brethren and everyone.
“As a pastor by Gods grace I believe I will carry the work of God to the next level and I know God will give me the strength. So many lives will change through this Apostolic calling; the church members and everybody will be set free from the kingdom of darkness and so as an apostle, I will take the work of God all over the place.”
