The minister in charge of the Agona Asafo branch of the Ressurection Baptist Church of the Ghana Baptist Convention, Rev. Abraham Sanniez has warned self-acclaimed prophets to desist from the habit of giving false prophecies to gain cheap popularity and fame.

He said such behavior does not only ridicule the Church, but also tarnishes the image of the Clergy

His warning came at the heat of a prophecy by one Prophet Owusu Bempah who is noted for giving prophecies at the end of every year during Watch Night service to usher in the New Year.

But his prophecies about the death of some prominent personalities in the country, Sheik Dr. Osman Nuhu Shaributu and the Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia during the 2018 Watch Night service attracted the anger of some Muslim youth who attacked and vandalized some properties in his church.

His prophecies which has been described by many as ‘’prophecies of doom’’ has been condemned by majority of Ghanaians and high profile members of the Clergy, including Rev. Abraham Sanniez, as well as the various religious bodies in the country, calling on all such self-acclaimed prophets to be wary of their so-called prophecies.

In a related development, the Agona Swedru branch minister of the Apostles’ Continuation Church, Rev. Emmanuel Asante has advised ministers who claim to be prophets to attach a little bit of common sense any time they give prophecies by go to the people that those prophecies are concerned, and stop rushing to go public just to gain publicity and fame.

According to him, prophecies are meant for edification, and has therefore warned self-acclaimed prophets to learn to be humble and submissive in the utterances at the time of giving their so-called prophecies so as not t send unnecessary panic to the those prophecies are concerned. .       

Meanwhile, the founder of the Living Faith Church at Gomoa Benso also in the Central Region has predicted that 2019 will be a good year for Ghana and has therefore appealed to all Ghanaians to support the Government, irrespective of one’s political affiliation or lineage to ensure that the year becomes one of the good years in the history of the country.

According to him, the fact that Ghana has not experienced any mayhem as compared to other countries on the continent, considering the fact that the country has gone through many political transitions since 1992 attest to the fact the country’s peace cannot be compromised.

On his part, the Gomoa Akropong branch minister of the Holy Church of Bethlehem, Pastor Isaac Ansah described 2018 as a bad year for the country, as according to him, its political leaders failed to seek the face of God in their quest to govern the country, resulting in harsh economic situation during the year.

He has therefore advised leaders of the country to turn on a new leaf in the year 2019 by seeking the face of God first in all their endeavor, as according to him, that is the only way by which the country will receive all the blessings that God has in store for it.
