FOLLOW THE FAITH OF THE ELDERS 2

KEY SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 13:7 KJV “Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation”.

Our key scripture calls on us to remember them who had the rule over us, and preached to us the word of God. This means we must not forget about them, but to consider how they lived and the outcome of their lives. The word assures us that the same Jesus who honored their faith, has not changed. He would do the same for you. So, learn from such men, and just walk the path they walked, and you would have what they had. (Hebrews 13:8). This time we consider some experiences of evangelist Akwesi Amoako Francis (1948-1990). He is the leader and founder of Resurrection Power and evangelistic Ministries and living bread church.

HE was converted from a background that was very hostile to the word of God, to become a fire brand for God. He was fearless, selfless and projected only Jesus. He could go to Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and heal all the sick   at the OPD (Out Patient Department), leaving no work for the doctors that day. He stopped a witches conference in London. He never built a house for himself although he had the means to do it. He was the first convener of an indigenous conference of all pastors and evangelists (APECON) in this country (Ghana) He did it from his personal means. His ministry saw great conversions of hardcore fetish priests, occultic pastors, magicians, Muslims and many more. He is the pioneer of day time street side preaching in Ghana. He fearlessly opposed the Godless policies of the then military regime (PNDC) and was very successful. His life passion was Ghana must be saved

We are called upon to remember such men of faith. Study about their lives and follow their acts of faith. They give us vivid examples with proven, undeniable results of faith. The Bible said through faith the elders obtained a good report. You would have a good report of faith. (Please Google his name and read more about him)

PRAYER

Father I pray for all of us reading this devotional to stir in us a new passion for you and your work. May we be fired up to do more for your kingdom, knowing very well that you cannot fail us. In Jesus mighty name I have prayed.
