Isaac Owusu Bempah

The founder and Head of Glorious Word Ministry International, Rev. Isaac Owusu-Bempah in a sharp reaction to comments by the General Overseer of the Action Faith Chapel International in Accra, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, has disclosed that the Archbishop conferred on him his pastoral cloak and so, wonders why his spiritual leader would come at him in the midst of his congregation.

Raising doubts about the Archbishop, Rev. Owusu-Bempah in an interview with Oman FM Tuesday morning decried his comments which sought to condemn the prophecy concerning the life of President John Mahama.

According to him, President Mahama will die this year but stressed that this calamity can be averted if Ghanaians especially the President will seek the face of God in prayers and draw closer to Him.

After this prophecy was made public, some seasoned men of God in the country have slammed the prophecy by the leader of the Glorious Word Ministry.

Bishop Charles Agyin-Asare at a sermon on Sunday February 10 at the Perez Dome of the Word Miracle Church in Accra, indicated that the prophecy is ?pastorally and scripturally unethical?. He further declared;

?President Mahama will not die a premature death but will live to declare the works of the Lord.?

Also at a sermon on that same Sunday February 10, 2013 at the Action Faith Chapel International in Accra, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams in a harsh language, also descended heavily on Pastors who make doomsday prophecies against sitting Presidents. He stated that some of the prophecies pronounced by these pastors are borne out of greed and selfish aims and also don?t come from God.

Without making any reference to any Pastor, Archbishop Duncan-Williams further stated:

?The thing that you must always look out for when you see all these prophets prophesying all kinds of doom on the internet against the President?is to ask yourself, does [the Prophet] have honour, credibility, character and integrity? ?Where did he come from? Who trained him? How long has he been on the scene? Who laid hands on him? Whose product is he? At whose feet did he study? Who groomed him? Who covered him? Who was his teacher? Who taught him?

You must be honourable first to qualify to make whatever you say that comes to pass legitimate?it is not just about prophesying,? he said.

This statement has however been taken with a pinch of salt by Rev. Owusu-Bempah. According to him, he was pastorally trained by the Archbishop and therefore questioned the impression given about him after ordaining him as a man of God.

He also revealed that he had on countless occasions, given Archbishop Duncan-Williams prophecies which always came to pass. He cited a prophecy he gave concerning the lives of the Archbishop?s children and the dangers that would have befallen him, of which he (Duncan-Williams), sought his guidance to avert the prophecy.

He also added that on several occasions, he has consulted with him for prayer and counselling and therefore believed the comments could be as a result of a hidden agenda. He also revealed that his associate gave a vehicle to the Archbishop as a gift for his (Rev. Owusu-Bempah) relationship with him.

He therefore bemoaned Archbishop Duncan-Williams? denial of the impact of his prophecies since he has benefited from them and without him prophesying the doom that awaited him at his 65th anniversary, the Archbishop may not have seen the light of the day.

He however insisted the President may die and so, together with his congregants, he has already embarked on prayers and fastings to thwart the consequences of the prophecy.
