The late Reverend Joseph
Samuels was an inspiration to
all and a dedicated servant of
God, of whom he received his
calling as a youth. He was a
strong leader who led his
ministries with undeniable
faith and wisdom
worldwide. He will also be
remembered as a loving and
devoted husband to his lovely wife Ina of 44 years. He was a wonderful loving father to his son Dwain and his late son Michael. An enthusiastic and caring grandfather to Nathaniel, Jared (sons of
Michael and Anna), Tristan, Kaila and Sophia (children of Dwain and Marilen). A loving brother to Gladstone, Daphne and Margaret. He will be greatly missed by relatives, friends, his congregation and fellow ministers. He led his life with so much love, faith, strength and unselfishness. He will be the constant light in our hearts which will never fade.
Ebenezer Revival Tabernacle Ministries started October 4th, 1987. All Sunday Services and Wednesday night Bible Studies were held in the basement of Pastor & Mrs. Samuels' home during the month of October. They quickly outgrew the basement space and moved into an office complex on November 1st, 1987. The Lord blessed the Ministry in a tremendous way, and after a year they outgrew the space and moved to Aldergrove Public School where they spent approximately five years. On June 20th, 1993, they moved to 3025 Kennedy Road where they worshipped for just over six years. God then blessed us by allowing us to purchase a building which we renovated. On July 19th, 1999, we moved to our own Church Building which is located at 1228 Birchmount Road. Over the past years, we have seen many souls accept Jesus as their personal saviour, many lives transformed, wounded spirits healed by the power of God and many broken relationships mended. God has been good to Ebenezer Revival Tabernacle.
The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth. and in thy heart; that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no differene between the Jew and the Greek; for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things? - Romans 10:8-15
Say not ye. There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest/ Behold, I say unot you, lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. - John 4:35
