Rev Owusu Bempah has replied to the punitive criticisms he has been getting from a section of Ghanaians in the past few days over the prophecies he made on the 31st of December 2018 at his watch night service.
Speaking on behalf of Owusu Bempah, the official spokesperson for the church, Reverend Nana Mensa Ofori, said he will not retract the prophecies because they were revelations given to him by God.
“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
Rev. Bempah was on record to have said that an ex-president and a former first lady would die in the course of the year adding that a national Islamic funeral signals which would be the funeral of a Vice President of a sitting President and a Chief Imam, if nothing is done to avoid the doom.
This declaration has initiated a nationwide reproach by Ghanaians and has also led to an attack on one of his church branches by some irritated Muslim youth in Accra.
“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”. Rev Nana Ofori Mensah added.
