Founder and Leader of the New Jerusalem chapel in Kumasi, Bishop J. Y. Adu has suggested Ghanaians sustain fasting and prayers to avert the wrath of God.
Bishop Adu noted that mankind has disregarded the admonition of God to live righteous lives and engaged in outrageous abominable practices including homosexuality and indecent and provocative dresses by women hence strange diseases have become the lot of the people.
He has suggested that the fasting and prayers should be sustained on regular basis because a day’s fasting and prayers are not enough to atone for the sins and douse the wrath of God.
“Until we do the right things in the eyes of God, we will continue to be punished in one way or the other hence the need to come together and pray for forgiveness of sins”, the man of God stressed.
Bishop Adu has commended the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the bold step he took to announce a lockdown in the greater Accra, Tema, Kasoa and Greater Kumasi.
Last Friday, the President announced a lockdown in some parts of the country effective Monday March 30, 2020 for a period of two weeks.
The man of God also commended the president for the closure of the country’s borders as part of new measures to combat COVID-19.
On Sunday March 22, 2020 Ghana closed all land, sea and air borders to human traffic for two weeks which move
Bishop Adu said was timely and decisive because the Coronavirus pandemic could have been worse without his intervention.
He urged the president to ensure constant review of interventions as and when necessary to contain the spread of the virus.
Bishop Adu advised Ghanaians to comply with the presidential directives in their own interest and save Ghana the inherent financial burden in the fight against further spread of the contagious disease.
Bishop Adu also urged the local scientists to research into the advent of the disease towards finding a possible cure.
