Faith in God’s word is believer’s weapon of war, says Akamisoko
The Bishop of Kubwa, Anglican Diocese, Rt. Rev Duke Akamisoko, has called on pastors to focus their sermons more on faith in Christ, as the only weapon Christians need to overcome every battle in life, especially now that the Coronavirus pandemic is ravaging the world and making people fearful.
In a message titled: “Have Faith in God,” the Bishop said when people are living in a very critical situation, is a time when faith, which is the believer’s weapon of war, needs to be preached over and over again.
COVID-19, the cleric said, had brought fear and death in Nigeria and globally. As such, Christians must remind themselves that God has given them all they need to be victorious over any battle. He cited several examples from the Bible, including the paralytic man and the woman with the issue of blood, who were healed because of their faith, and stressed that this is the time for Christians to increase their faith and not doubt God. He also urged Christians to apply themselves to God’s Word to increase their faith, even as he challenged them to listen more to God’s Word than they listen to news on radio/television and newspapers.
God’s Word, according to Akamisoko, is the instrument of war at this time. Therefore, it must not be far from Christians, whom he urged not to speak negatively, but to speak God’s word against every challenging situation. He declared that COVID-19 would crumble in Jesus’ name, and emphasised that God’s Word is still true and should not be forgotten during these times.
The Bishop highlighted different levels of faith; noting that no matter how little a person’s faith is, it can do wonders. He enjoined Christians with little faith to continue to increase their faith with the knowledge of God’s Word.
