Is God confused with the different prophecies on who becomes the next president of Ghana? Bishop Agyin Asare quizzes as he called to order fake prophets who prophesy election as well as the death of celebrities?
In a recent virtual sermon, the Presiding Bishop of Perez Chapel International said the Bible has spoken of such prophecies of lies.
For instance, he said Jeremiah 5:31 as saying: ‘The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule by their own power, and my people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?’.
Additionally, he quoted Jeremiah 14:14, as saying: ‘And the Lord said to me, ‘the prophets prophesy lies in my name. I have not sent them, commanded them, nor spoken to them; they prophesy to you a false vision, divination, a worthless thing, and the deceit of their heart’.
He said rather than give false prophecies, priests must educate the people, as the Amplified version of Malachi 2:7 says: ‘For the priest’s lips should guard and keep pure the knowledge [of my law], and the people should seek (inquire for and require) instruction at his mouth; for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts’.
“How can our prophets prophesy safety and who would win elections 2020 in the face of all the social evils?” the founder of Perez Chapel International wondered.
“Is God confused? Some are prophesying Nana Akufo-Addo would win while others are prophesying John Mahama would win”, he opined
“So, why do the candidates have to campaign, since it is a done deal?” Bishop Agyinasare asked.
Bishop Agyinasare also said: “Instead of educating the masses, we are prophesying the death of celebrities”, asking: “Why are we not prophesying the deaths of poor people”.
“For us pastors, we must judge ourselves so others don’t”, he admonished, quoting I Corinthians 11:31, which says: “For, if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.”
“Our prophecies must be subject to scrutiny by the church”, Bishop Agyinasare noted, quoting I Corinthians 14:29, which says: ‘Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge’, as biblical evidence.
We couldn’t agree less with the acclaimed man of God with his assertion of the high rampant prophecies which have flooded our airwaves and we are calling on the right regulatory bodies to begin to see to it that the media landscape would be sanitized to allow only what is right to be consumed by the general public.
We also call on the Ghana Christian Council to call these “Prophets” who are fond of disseminating such information to order and probably sanction them, with these few measures we believe this will curb such things from happening
