“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is…”  There is something about large groups of people that instills emotions into people be it favored or otherwise.

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is…”  There is something about large groups of people that instills emotions into people be it favored or otherwise.

Whatever the reasons may be, humans find themselves gravitating towards inspirational reasons and if you’re a Christian, such reasons may include Christmas, New Year and Good Friday.

Deep within the continent of Africa, the metropolis of Accra, Ghana, bears witness to one of the largest gatherings in all of West Africa if not Africa. Led by the founding bishop of the Lighthouse Chapel International, Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills, and his associates Bishops E.A.T. Sackey and Eddy Addy, the Independence Square was host to a spectacle dubbed “The Good Friday Miracle Service”. As is turning into an annual event, The Good Friday Miracle service picked up from where it last left off;

  1. A massive choir numbering 6000+
  2. Influential pastors of the land
  3. Dignitaries from the highest office (H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo and his Vice Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia) and Members of Parliament
  4. Miracles…unending miracles

This was not your everyday service manned by an average Joe but one that was accompanied by several miracles.

If anyone was to be quite attentive they would realize the passion with which the Evangelist prayed for the congregation like a father would his child and that’s what invokes biblical blessings akin to that of Psalm 103:13 “Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.”

The masses converged, the masses sang, the masses were preached to, the masses believed, the masses received salvation and the masses were healed.

The only comparison I could make between this glorious sight and something nearly abstract (because its wonders are too great to fathom) would be my personal imagining of Joshua 6:3 “…And ye shall compass the city…” And so they did; they encompassed the city with their numbers and their cries eclipsed all other events.

Words cannot describe the atmosphere in its entirety but one this is certain. Jesus Christ died to save sinners of whom I am chief and his power, the power in his blood, still remains evident after 2000 long years.
