Founder and leader of the Glorious Word and Power Ministries International, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, has been in the news after he prophesied that the Chief Imam Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu will die this year during his 31st watch night service.
This prophecy didn’t go down well with some Muslim youths and stormed his church premises to vandalise equipment but the popular man of God who remained silent for some reason has finally responded to the harsh criticisms he has been receiving from a cross-section of Ghanaians in the past few days.
According to the official spokesperson for the church, Reverend Nana Mensa Ofori, Rev Owusu Bempah has stated that he will not retract the prophecies because they were revelations given to him by God and nothing can be done about it.
“Their request has no grounding. He was not the one who said it but God spoke through him. It is only God who can reverse the prophecies, not Papa Owusu Bempah. He is only a vessel that was used for that purpose of conveying the message. God cannot direct him to speak on a particular subject and will say a different thing”, he said.
Reverend Nana Ofori Mensah also said, “The decision for Rev Owusu Bempah to apologize and retract will not hold. If God speaks through me that next year you will be rich and I convey that message to you and you examine yourself that it is not impossible and confront…asking me to stand before the public to announce a counter-prophecy…if I do that I really do not know the God I am working with… it means I said it at the first instance on my own volition”.
Meanwhile, the leader of the Muslim youth who stormed Owusu Bempah’s church premises to vandalise equipment has reported himself to the Police to help assist in investigations. Read the full story here.
