The Apostle-General of Royalhouse Chapel International, Reverend Sam Korankye Ankrah, has shared with his congregation how to identify a fake prophet.
The outspoken and influential man of God at a sermon made a clear observation about false and doomsday prophets in Ghana at the moment.
According to Sam Korankye Ankrah, false prophets in Ghana fond of churning out dark prophecies about the death of famous persons in the country often bleach their faces.
Below is the transcript of his submission:
"I've never been to their churches before but I've been hearing them on radio, and, so, I can tell a few characteristics that you must know and watch out [for].
Number one, some of these prophets, I've noticed one major characteristic – they all have bleached faces. Their prophecies and miracles are mere "projections" rather than divine revelations given to them by God. I'll be showing you the advantage that they have over the people that are following them; remember that prophecy is to declare and to speak, and, so, he [doomsday prophet] is in a position to declare and to speak; and whatever he speaks and he declares, always … cows and controls the people so that the people will always follow until something happens".
Christian Council on doomsday prophets:
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 stated that 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.
Due to his many prophecies - some of which have come to pass - foretelling doom and gloom, some Ghanaians, especially clergymen, have branded him as a prophet of doom and one who lives on fear and panic.
