Reverend Mrs. Olive Nortey, the general overseer of Dromo Ministries International, has emphasised the necessity for Christians to commemorate the death of Christ in order to understand its actual significance and intent.

The clergywoman told the media on Good Friday, April 7, 2023, that the real holiday to be observed is Passover, not Easter, as it is often believed.

“As you seek for Easter, you realise that it is something entirely different that has to do with eggs and bunnies, and that eggs and bunnies were not used to save us. In light of this, I believe it is time for Christians to return to the original aspects of the holidays that God himself established for us. The relevance, influence, and genuine meaning of that on our lives and Christian destinies will become clear to us as we experience its significance.

She claims that honouring Christ’s death in its real context will enable Christians to gain and benefit from their status as God’s children.

I think it will be really helpful for us because when there is a meaning, we will actually experience the positive effects of what we have believed to alter and improve our lives so that we can become the people that God has created us to be.

When we say Passover, you do realise that something horrible must pass over you, but when you say Easter, what do you understand about Easter? In my opinion, it should be Passover and not Easter. God is aware of the rationale behind his command that we preserve the Passover throughout our generation as followers of Christ and as God’s sons and daughters. She cautioned, “We don’t have to alter what God established.

While the festive season is distinguished by enjoyable activities, Rev. Mrs. Olive Nortey said that these shouldn’t take away from the period’s true meaning.

“I believe that most people do not really understand what is going on. I think this is a time for introspection, meditation, and remembering everything that Jesus endured so that we could live. I think the enjoyable aspect shouldn’t take precedence over the reality and the realities,” she said.

She pleaded on Christian and church leaders to properly direct their followers to obey God’s “dictates and mandates.”
