- Owusu Bempah says he turned down a 1 million dollar offer from the NDC
- The prophet says his spirituality will never be bought or commercialized
- The Christian Council has warned Owusu Bempah against his vile prophecies
The founder of the Glorious Word Power Ministry, Rev. Owusu Bempah, has revealed that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) offered to grant him 1 million dollars for spiritual guidance in the lead up to the 2016 elections.
Owusu Bempah, who predicted the victory of Nana Addo during the campaign season, says his rejection of the 1 million dollars together with a Toyota Land Cruiser V8 was basically based on moral grounds.
"Even the NDC offered to give me a V8. They wanted spiritual guidance but I rejected the offer although I also prayed for them," Owusu Bempah revealed in an interview with Okay FM in Accra.
Owusu Bempah was the focal point of prophecies during and after the 2016 elections, due to his prophecies on how Nana Addo will win the 2016 elections.
Meanwhile, the Christian Council of Ghana says the prophecies of doom by the founder of the Glorious Word Power Ministry, Rev. Owusu Bempah, are troubling.
Chairman of the council, Rt. Rev. Senyo Agidi bemoaned the manner in which Owusu Bempah has found love in creating fear and panic through his prophecies.
Following recent prophecies on the death of Ebony Reigns and the late former vice president, Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur, the Christian Council has argued that Owusu Bempah should have prayed to avert these prophecies.
“Bishop Owusu Bempah is one person people do not agree with even in the society. He is able to prophesy deaths but does not pray to cancel them. Pastors are expected to help people and not to create fear. It is not my duty to chase and arrest Obinim after all the law says we have the right to Worship and if the law enforcers think people are not doing the right things, they must act. Prophet One (1) is one who does things we do not agree with as well,” he said on Starr FM.
Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah is known by Ghanaians for his controversial statements and dramatic prophecies.
During a New Year's Eve service his church, the founder of Glorious Word Ministry stated that if Ghanaians don't endeavor to pray, one of Ghana's first ladies will be buried in 2018.
“There are some people we call first ladies and these people are the wives of the first gentlemen that is the President of the Nation. If we don’t pray, this year, Ghana will bury a first lady,” he said.
