Bible Writers' Theology v.1
Acts of God in Ethiopia
Teklemariam Gezahagne and Sis. Mary
For a careful observer of the Apostolic spiritual revival taking place across the ancestral land of Ethiopia at the close of the second millennium of the Christian era, there is a remarkable uniqueness of God’s sovereign timing coupled with yielded lives to become instrumental in the work of His kingdom.
One such life is Teklemariam Gezahagne, born in 1937 to a family of farmers in Nebelet, Ethiopia. From the early days of his outstanding ministry which shines out as a spiritual pioneer, the Bible prophecies mentioning the land of Ethiopia considered by many historians in the past as an island of Christian faith are still a vibrant note in his soul and mind.
For this man, the claims of Christ and the assertions of His apostles as to His Deity and Godhead could not find their match in the Trinitarian seminaries he attended. But the God of the prophets and the apostles had a plan for His chosen vessel. When the Lord, in His grace, spoke to His thirsting servant saying clearly: “Peter is saved, Paul is saved, the apostles are saved, the way that brought them to salvation shall also lead you to eternal life...”, it was an open door for an unprecedented harvest of souls into the kingdom, for the glory of God.
It didn’t take much time before another revelation come to him - the baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. He saw Christ in a vision as he was contemplating this truth. His experience of being literally “swallowed up” in his vision into the body of Christ left him trembling, but was a tremendous confirmation and powerful illustration of the biblical truth found in Galatians 3:27.
Since 1966, Bishop Teklemariam Gezehagne has been spreading the Bible writers’ doctrine in Ethiopia and today over two million souls are baptized in Jesus’ Name and filled with the Holy Ghost.
