‘Stop Chasing Miracles’
Pastor Kwabena Donkor
The Deputy Director of Biblical Research Institute of the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church worldwide, Pastor Kwabena Donkor, has advised Christians to stop chasing signs and wonders but allow signs and wonders follow them to bring harmony into the country.
According to him, ‘Currently, there are a lot of revival and prophesies going on in the world, but it must be noted that the true revival comes from the word of God.’
He pointed out that Christians have to be told the truth that they have a responsibility to live a life that will highlight Jesus Christ, since ‘righteousness exalts a nation.’
Pastor Kwabena Donkor made these remarks when delivering a sermon during this year’s South Ghana Conference of the SDA which was attended by members from Tema Central, East and North Districts as well as Doryumu in the Shai-Osudoku District of Accra.
The six-day conference, themed ‘Revival and the prophetic truth,’ held at Doryumu, drew Adventists from various parts of the Tema region. It was aimed at helping members of the church to renew their spiritual lives.
According to Pastor Kwabena Donkor, ‘Revival does not always come in a spectacular form. Christians must desist from chasing miracles and rather concentrate on how to cause positive change in their own small ways to bring harmony into the country.’
He emphasised that Christians must seek Christ in all their endeavours and they would get the answers to all the challenges confronting them.
The Deputy Director of Biblical Research Institute admonished Christians to champion what are virtuous to serve as a motivation to others to follow.
He said although seeking miracles is not a bad thing, ‘the miracles should come as a result of hearing and believing the word of God.’
The Deputy Director wondered why some Christians spend time in churches to have an encounter with God and after that go to engage in anti-social behaviours like bribery, corruption, stealing, littering the environment, among others.
Pastor Kerphas Gyamfi of the Tema Central District of the SDA, who spoke about searching for the root cause of a problem – relating it to the situation in Ghana – noted that there was too much bitterness, disunity, tribalism and disrespect for the elderly in most Ghanaian societies.
He called for a change of attitude, adding that ‘People could conveniently call into radio stations and insult elderly people without any feeling of guilt, all in the name of politics.’
Pastor Gyamfi cautioned the media not to allow their platforms to be used to promote indiscipline so that the country is not plunged into chaos.
