The Head of Programmes at African Centre for Security and Counter-Terrorism (ACSC), Emmanuel Kutin has urged Ghanaians not to pay attention to men of God who engage in false prophecies.
According to him, the so called pastors and prophets who engage in such activities are false prophets because that activity has no basis in the Bible.
His comment comes on the back of prophecy made by the founder and leader of Glorious Word and Power Ministry International Isaac Owusu-Bempah stating that some assassins are planning to kill the flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.
Owusu Bempah stated that some Ghanaian politicians are scheming to kill the presidential candidate of the NPP before the December 7 general elections.
He said the assassins are plotting to carry out the operation during one of Nana Addo’s campaign tours.
The popular preacher failed to mention names of the suspects but said they would shoot him at a rally.
Rev Bempah made the allegation during an interaction with journalists.
“God has revealed to me that some politicians in a certain political party in Ghana are conspiring with some members of the NPP to shoot Nana dead at a campaign tour. The NPP should not take this as a joke but rather provide tight security around the man,” he said.
He was subsequently invited by the CID to explain his prophecy.
However Mr Emmanuel Kutin believes the controversial pastor is misleading and defrauding his followers and congregants.
He expressed the belief that Owusu-Bempah as well as other men of God who give such prophecies are tarnishing the image of Christians and described members of his church as a ‘bunch of ignorant people’.
He called on the general public to disregard any such statements by Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah.
