These are the words of a social commentator who drove 18miles to the event center;
‘O what a wonderful, wonderful day- day I would never forget. Shadows dispelling with joy I am telling He made all the darkness depart.’
Heaven and earth testify to the goodness of the Lord on the August day of the most anticipated Christian gathering in Ghana, West Africa, the Taabea Tehillah Experience.
As the theme proved, the gathering of saints which drawn its inspiration from the Hebrew declaration תְּהִלָּה (Tehillah) has stirred the thoughts of pursuing holiness and given hopes and dreams of praising God.
How could it have been talked about if the heavens withheld its accumulated presence to be bestowed on saints through the downpour of the rains on the mount of praise?
Patrons who have heard of the annual gathering of the Tehillah Experience marked their dates and set their calendars right.
It wouldn’t have been perfect if human-driven doubts had not set in. One attendee mentioned, ‘I am scared the people coming in will not have enough spaces in the auditorium and even outside.’
The night has begun in the day when all seats were filled up about sundown not long after the first drizzle.
Awurabena Arhinful set the hearts of many on fire as she led the gathering through an intimate prayer and praise with the Lord of hosts.
The skillful and creative abilities she carried assisted her spirit-filled performance for the half hour after sundown.
Not long had Ewura left stage did the Nations Seer, Prophet Obeng, a minister of the Methodist Church of Ghana mount the podium. The hand of the Lord breathed unto the nation as the man steered the wheel into the sanctuary’s holy place.
Presuming to have ended, the clouds of heaven readily let out their holdings and in no time, the land, people, and hearts were soaked with all forms of blessings.
The Minstrel, Ohemaa Mercy, and her accompanying voices mounted the stage in that which was presented as the Levites leading the priest into the Ark of Covenant.
Souls and minds were thrilled, fixated eyes and hands lifted to the moment that moved people out of their seats; the entry of the woman Ohemaa Mercy.
Oh, how wonderful and marvelous was it to see the new school of ministers rally behind the woman, Ohemaa Mercy in leading many to the throne of God.
It was a night of manifold witness to the great faithfulness of God. Like Shiloh, men poured their hearts and offerings to the glory of Him who deserves all glory.
The convenor of the New Wine Concert, Ps. Nana Yaw Boakye known in mainstream media, MoG held the congregation through with the evergreen minstrel, Ohemaa Mercy as they performed back-to-back hit songs they both have recorded.
Two amazing artists having risen from Ghana’s second-largest city, Kumasi- Kofi Owusu Peprah and Efe Grace held stunned patrons with heaven-dwelling performances.
The nations of the earth were fully represented when South Africa and Nigeria’s Lebo Sekgobela and Mr. M & Revelation respectively showed unity in diversity as they ministered in voices known to the heavens and nations.
Prophet Kofi Oduro, Prophet Salifu Amoako, Prophet Amoako Atta, Prophet Joseph Attarah, Akesse Brempong, Piesie Esther, Ceccy Twum, MoG Music, ASP Kofi Sarpong, and other hosts of dignitaries were among the host of ministers of the gospel and musicians all across the land who made their presence known by partaking and performing in functions in the night.
Indeed the words of the Psalmist attest to the experience that was felt at the ICGC Calvary, Spintex, Accra. Lights, colors, microphones, drums, and voices as excellent as they all were testified to the Lord’s presence and blessing throughout the hours.
Great recognition and thanks will be said to the CEO of Taabea Group of Companies for his unflinching support and encouragement towards the funding and organizing of this freely held gathering of saints.
Until the next gathering, let the waters of Tehillah depart not from our wells this day and beyond. Selah!
