The founder of Men of Faith House of Prayer for all Nations (MOFAN), Pastor Emmanuel Otabil has challenged pastors who have turned themselves into political prophets to begin to speak the truth to the government, irrespective of which party is in power, and stop deceiving them that things are on course even when it is evidently clear that the economic situation is getting out of hand.
Speaking at the sidelines of a 3-Day prayer festival on the theme: ” Come Out” at Gomoa Jukwa/Idankrom in the Central Region Pastor Otabil said no amount of prayers can redeem a country’s economy if pragmatic mechanisms are not put in place to address the challenges facing the economy.
He described as political prophets, men of God who claim to be prophets and give written prophecies only on 31st Night as pastors who walk with their stomach and looking for fame.
According to him, in all cases, those prophecies are intended to put fear in those that the prophecies are directed to, especially those in high positions and social standing.
He pointed out that these self-acclaimed prophets ride in fleet of luxurious cars and owned mansions by the deeds of their so-called prophecies, whiles majority of their congregants wallow in abject poverty.
