—Says Rev. Koah at the Liberia for Christ Crusade
The president of the Assembly of God Bible College, Rev. Dr. Jimmy Koah, has challenged Christians in the country to get ready to fight against what he called the “gates of hell in Liberia.”
Rev. Koah made the remark over the weekend when he served as keynote speaker of the 1st National Christian Council of Liberia’s awareness meeting, dubbed “Presenting the Country to Christ Crusade.”
“There are established territories of the devil in this country as well as the gates of hell that we as Christians must fight to restore our nation to Christianity,” Rev. Koah said.
He also challenged his fellow worshippers not to sit and watch what he described as “captives of the same hell or the devil” to remain in prison while the faithful look on.
“The church is a marching army. Therefore, we have to rise and set our brothers and sisters who have fallen prey to material things, and other vices, free,” Rev. Dr. Koah said, adding that there is no time better than now for all who profess the Christian faith to march on for the redemption of their fellow countrymen and the nation in particular.
The general overseer of the Deeper Life Christian Ministry in Liberia, Bishop Alex Alasoja Ajayi, said, “because change is inevitable, the church must assure itself of the will of God present everywhere and every time.”
“Now that our experiences are contrary to our expectations and a general discontent continues to loom, we have to implore the divine intervention of the Lord,” Bishop Ajayi said.
He said the forces of stalled development have engulfed Africa, and Liberia in particular is paying a lot more than any other country on the continent as the oldest independent nation.
“The change we yearn for must start with us at the top. We have to sincerely preach the gospel in simple terms and live the life of Christ so as to impact the lives of those who look up to us,” he said.
Ajayi then called on all leaders in the church to be humble and trustworthy so as to help others who see their good examples to accept a revolutionary transformation.
He meanwhile declared the support of his congregation to the success of the crusade and accepted to be a member of the National Christian Council of Liberia (NCCL).
The president of the NCCL, Bishop Rudolph Marsh Sr., said the restoration of Liberia to its Christian heritage is the utmost mission of the organization.
“Our resolve to call for this international crusade came after our recent regional conference in Nigeria with Rev. Dr. W. F. Kunuyi, head of the Deeper Life Christian Ministry Worldwide, on how we can get Liberia on good footing and distance ourselves from the ugly past that keeps haunting us in this era of national existence,” Bishop Marsh said.
He said the crusade is slated for July 14, 15 and 16, 2017, where Rev. Kunuyi will be the key preacher.
