Healing Through Baptism and Exorcism

Posted by addisethiopia on December 15, 2013

መምህር ግርማ: Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Exorcism – የረር ሥላሴ

 

Ethiopian Orthodox Priest / Exorcist, Memehir Girma Wondimu giving spiritual healing services at the mysterious Yerer Selassie / Trinity Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Chu rch — September 2013

Thousands of people flood on Saturdays and Sundays to the Yerer Selassie church, located in the outskirts of Addis Abeba to witness this unique experience – and to give a wonderful Testimony of healing, restoration and salvation through miracles. Many give Testimonies to being miraculously healed from both physical and spiritual diseases.

I humbly recommended Byoncé, Rihanna & Jada of Will Smith to visit Memehir Girma Wendimu during their recent journey in Ethiopia. Alongside Miley Cyrus, the three ‘Illuminati’ divas show a clear sign of demonic possession which they should immediately have it exorcised.

Bermuda: Ethiopian Orthodox Church Paintings

Ethiopian-Orthodox-Church-Bermuda-December-6-2013-16On Friday night, Bermuda’s Ethiopian Orthodox Church opened their doors as locals were invited to learn about their traditions and view their intricately painted church icons created by an Ethiopian Monk Priest.

The Debra Ganet Immanuel Cathedral in St George’s features an interior full of painted icons by Abba Gebre Hiwot Wolde Samuel, who was born in a small village in Ethiopia, and ordained as a Monk Priest when he was 18 years old.

He then studied religious art, and was contracted to paint religious murals for 11 churches in Ethiopia. After seven years, he selected to travel to Barbados with other priests to establish churches in the region, and in 1999 Samuel arrived in Bermuda after being asked to paint for the church on the island.

The Bermuda Church belongs to the Archdiocese of Latin America and The Caribbean, and was elevated to Diocesan Status in 1977 with the consecration of the former garrison chapel in St. George’s as the Debre Ganet Immanuel Cathedral Church, which means Immanuel Cathedral Of Paradise.

The Ethiopian Orthodox Church’s open house coincided with the National Trust Christmas Walkabout in St George’s, with the East End a hub of activity as the festive season gets underway.

Demographic Shift: Where Have All the Christians Gone?

God’s Missionaries: Ethiopian Orthodox Church congregations could be a significant asset for American-born Christians

doctrinal-debate-gone-badIn his new book, “From Times Square to Timbuktu: The Post-Christian West Meets the Non-Western Church,” Wesley Granberg-Michaelson, the former General Secretary of the Reformed Church in America, focuses on making sense of the massive demographic shift and explores the consequences and responsibilities the Church must now face.

For Granberg-Michaelson, one of those responsibilities is unity. With over 2.18 billion Christians and seemingly ever growing 44,886 denominations globally, the author empathizes that work of bringing the Body of Christ together is difficult.

Yet, “the Biblical call to unity is pervasive and compelling,” Granberg-Michaelson told The Christian Post.

“The Biblical passage calling Christians to unity isn’t contained in a proof text here or there, but resonant throughout the Bible’s message.”

Grandberg-Michaelson said that one of the impacts of Christianity’s spread in the “Global South” has been the increased interaction that these individuals are having with American Christians, much of this exchange enabled through immigration.

The author, who hails from Grand Rapids, Mich., said that a recent Sunday school assignment revealed the presence of 22 immigrant congregations in the city. Most recently, he learned of an Ethiopian congregation in the city from his cab driver.

[He told me] ‘We have an Ethiopian Orthodox Church on 28th Street in Grand Rapids,” recounted Grandberg-Michaelson. “I said, ‘How do you do your ministry?’ He said ‘We have a priest from Ethiopia… we support him so he can pray every day and in fact today is my day to bring him his three meals.'”

“This is in Grand Rapids!” Grandberg-Michaelson added.

He said that the emergence of these congregations could be a significant asset for American-born Christians.

“The center of the Christian world has shifted and there are new voices. I’d like to think that those who have come for one reason or another from other countries into our midst, I’d like to think of them as God’s missionaries,” said Grandberg-Michaelson.
