The pastor in charge of the Calvary Charismatic church at Santa Maria in Accra, Pastor Thomas Quayson has charged Christians to use the power of God in them to heal and do other wonders as Jesus Christ did.
He said it is unfortunate that Christians are not aware of the power they have in them-the power to heal, cast evil spirit and to perform miracles.
According to him, christians have left the duty of healing and other miracles to the pastors alone, forgetting that they too can pray for the sick to receive healing. “The power to heal does not only belong to the pastor, bishops, elders, church fathers, or the prophet. Every good Christian with faith has the power to do miracles”, he said.
The pastor made these remarks in an interview with the resurrectionnewsonline at his church office recently.
Asked why Christians are not aware of the healing power in them, the pastor said most of the pastors have not taught their members, and have kept that knowledge to themselves for fear of loosing authority over them.
“They want to remain the only man of God who has the power to heal and to perform miracles”, he added.
Pastor Quayson added that these pastors refuse to teach members about the healing power because they are either not aware of the holy spirit or fear they can no longer sell creams, oils, pourage, etc to them.
“And they can no longer charge consultation fees and deceive the innocent ones”, he added.
He quoted Arts 1: 8 of the bible, saying that by the power of the Holy Spirit, all good and genuine Christians can do miracles as well.
Pastor Quayson however noted that the power to heal does not belong to just an ordinary church goer, but to a christian who is prayerful, who reads the bible, who lives a righteous life, and who does as Jesus Christ did.
He condemned the actions of some pastors who charge consultation fees including charge for miracles, saying it is not biblical because Jesus freely gave, and did not charge anyone.
Concluding, the man of God advised Christians to have faith in the word of God and avoid depending on pastors always for their spiritual needs.
