There is hope and power in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the message shared to all believers when the Area Head of Downtown Ofaakor, Apostle Dr. Benjamin Ali mount the podium to deliver the 2021 Easter sermon.
Speaking on the theme “Tetelestai” which means “It is Finished”, the Preacher said, the day itself is a glorious one because Christ is risen from the land of death.
Reading from John 19: 29-30, the Apostle emphatically narrated that, without the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and shedding of His blood, there will be no remission of sins.
“Jesus died about 2000 years ago and His death still has an effect on the present generation and that to come. Jesus had to die on the cross to settle our debt physically, materially, and even spiritually, hence “Tetelestai”; it is finished. He narrated.
He entreated Christians to accept the happenings on the cross because the devil cannot harm them. “We are saved because of the blood. So, we can even command sickness to vanish so far as we believe in the resurrection of Christ. God Himself is watching over His word to perform, for it will be fulfilled”. He added.
The atonement on the cross is our rescue to salvation and deliverance. We have clearance as Christians to speak to God directly about our sorrow and misfortunes. Easter itself is of great significance and Christians must succumb to the blood with a Holy heart.
Concluding his sermon, Apostle Ali stated that, the love expressed to us as Christians by God is so unique as stated in John 17:23. “We have been spiritually been resurrected by God the very moment Jesus rose from the grave.” All our woes have been taken care of by God as mentioned in Ephesians 2:5-6. Just believe in Him and He will definitely turn your life around. We are so right in the presence of God and seated in the place of authority.
The absolute way to nullify the words of the devil is by quoting the scriptures. It is for this reason that, every battle of our lives has been settled with the word “Tetelestai”
