Ghanaians have been urged to consecrate their lives to God, so as to co-exist peacefully with one another.
Prophet Simon Peter Sotie, an International Evangelist said consecration means a total commitment to God and the affairs of His (God) Kingdom, urging Christians to see a fully consecrated life for Christ as a normal Christian life and not to consider it to be a life merely for few faithfuls in Christ.
He said an unparalleled dedication to the Kingdom of God is another way of sustaining the anointing.
Prophet Sotie made the call in Tema at the end of a four-day revival programme of the Maranatha Assembly of the Great Commission Church International, as part of activities to prepare the congregation for a smooth take-off in the new year, on the theme: “2014 My Year of Divine Shocks, and Double Portions”.
He advised Ghanaians to forgive one another, and to remove every root of bitterness within them, declaring that “bitterness is like a tree that grows upside down, which will eventually destroy the very people who harbour them in their hearts”.
He urged Ghanaians to work harder and to be more faithful this year in their works so as to attract God’s blessings and anointing upon their lives and businesses.
“Until a man is faithful, he does not have a future in the Kingdom. It’s impossible to succeed in the kingdom without faithfulness.”
He said the requirements of good stewardship are faithfulness, not strength or eloquence or good looks; adding that commitment goes beyond physical involvement.
Prophet Sotie observed that a hearty dedication to God and His Kingdom is what guarantees the sustenance of God’s anointing and that faithfulness brings promotion.
“Consecration enhances the flow of revelation, and revelation is wood for the anointing.
Therefore, purity is vital, if you desire to sustain the anointing in your life. Staying anointed requires that you stay in the word for this you require meekness, joy, meditation and consecration,” he stated.
He further urged Christians to take the word of God seriously, and apply it to their lives at all times, which would cause them to prosper. GNA
