Pastor Wisdom Kpeli of the Church of Pentecost (COP) has said that the use of emblems such as stickers, bundles, and water from prayer camps for intercession by some Christians has no power. He argued that Jesus is the only one who truly intercedes and does so effectively for believers.

During his Easter sermon, titled “The Benefits of the Resurrection” at Kasoa, Pastor Kpeli quoted from the Bible Book of Romans 8:43, which reads: “Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.”

He wondered why believers should doubt the power of the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and rather put their trust in stickers, bundles, and water from prayer camps in interceding for them.

For the most part, it has become a common practice for some Christians in Ghana to put stickers of prophets, pastors, church symbols on their vehicles, and some acquire water, salt, onions, charcoal, and other items from supposed men of God to spiritually protect them from harm.

However, Pastor Kpeli maintained that Jesus is the only one who can intercede for believers and does so effectively. He identified Christmas and Easter as two of the most important festivals celebrated “with purpose in mind and a heart full of gratitude.”

He explained that Christmas is the miraculous entry of divinity into humanity, while Easter is the exit from earth to glory through the painful death but glorious resurrection. He described Easter as the reason for the season and said that the resurrection guaranteed the resurrection of the believer, is evidence that Christianity is true, helps the believer not to over-grieve, and motivates the believer to put away sin and live holy lives.

In conclusion, Pastor Kpeli’s message is clear – believers should not rely on emblems for intercession, but instead trust in Jesus Christ, who died and rose again and is the only one who can intercede for them effectively.
