There is no victory except Jesus – Rev. Odonkor
Accra, Reverend Fitzgerald Odonkor, the President of Harvest International Ministries, has reminded Christians that there is no victory anywhere except by the blood of Jesus.
He said the blood of Jesus Christ is sufficient to meet the needs of every Christian.
Rev. Odonkor was speaking at this year's Harvest Praise dubbed: "The Victory Edition 2017," under the theme:" Victory by the Blood of Jesus".
The Harvest Praise Festival is an annual Christian music outreach programme organised by the Harvest International Ministries.
The programme, held on every Good Friday, is aimed at using music, drama and the spoken word to reach out to the people with the message of salvation.
The festival is the 19th edition and featured both foreign and local gospel artistes.
Some of the artistes who performed were Todd Dulaney of the U.S.A, Joe Mettle, who recently won the Best Gospel Musician Award, and the Evergreen Harvest Gospel Choir.
Rev. Odonkor said in ancient Israel the High Priest sacrificed animals to atone for the sins of the people, however, it was not possible for the blood of animals to take away the sins of man.
He said God's requirement for the remission of sins could only be fully met by the sacrifice of His son Jesus Christ.
Rev. Odonkor said the shedding of the Blood of Jesus opened the way for believers to receive forgiveness and enter God's presence hence giving Christians a permanent victory.
"The good news for believers this Easter is that the blood of Jesus has given them victory over every orchestration of the enemy," he said.
Mr Bethel Agyeman Donkor, an elder of the Church, was honoured with a citation for his immense contribution to Harvest Praise over the years.
A cheque for GH5000.00 and GH4000.00 was presented to the Citi FM Foundation and Harvest Foundation respectively to enable them to continue with the humanitarian work.
