Isaac Owusu Bempah said he was misquoted by the media.
Founder and head pastor of the Glorious Word Ministry International, Rev Owusu Bempah has said he was misquoted by the media that Jesus Christ is an imposter and not the actual son of God.
According to him, he only sought to give the antecedent of how the name Jesus Christ came about adding that he was only educating Ghanaians that Jesus Christ, the son of God had an original name called Yeshua Hamashiach.
He stated that the name Jesus Christ was given by then Roman Emperor, Constantine to win his followers to his side.
“Constantine named the man Jesus Christ because he didn’t like his name and I know He is the same person. I was only elaborating more on the issue.
“I never said Jesus Christ is not the son of God. I was only explaining that some years back, the Jews didn’t recognize Jesus because the only name they knew was Yeshua Hamashiach and that was what I was trying to explain to Ghanaians,” he said in an interview on Accra-based Neat FM.
Owusu Bempah speaking to Kofi TV has stirred the latest controversy insisting that the real son of God is called Yeshua Hamashiach reiterating that Jesus Christ was an impostor.
He said “The son of God is not called Jesus Christ. He is called Yeshua Hamashiach. The name Jesus Christ was given by Constantine gave that name to Yeshua Hamashiach. Yeshua Hamashiach was given birth to by a woman on earth and was crucified by Plato and rose from the grave the third day into the skies with the hope he will return same as prophesied by angels. He is called the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Jesus Christ is not the name of the son of God. There was this man who came called Nero who was killing the followers of Jesus Christians who were not even called Christians but Nazarenes. He could feed them to lions and other dangerous animals but their numbers increased.”
