The General Overseer of New Life in Christ Ministries-London, Reverend Mark Adu Gyamfi has cautioned self-acclaimed preachers and prophets to stop the prediction of doom over the country as it readies itself for the December 7 general election.
According to the Minister of the gospel, there is nothing new with elections in Ghana for them to prophesy and predict doom as if it is something novel that will be happening in the country on December 7.
Addressing a press conference in Kumasi early Wednesday at his hotel, True Vine, Rev Adu-Gyamfi who is credited for establishing the first Charismatic Church in London 40 years ago noted that nothing bad will happen in the country on December 7.
He disclosed that the upcoming election would pass off as the most peaceful in the country since Independence.
‘’I want to tell each of you that God is the owner of this country and having assured us of his peace in the upcoming elections nobody can change it’’, Rev Gyamfi passionately stressed.
Teaching from the Bible, the preacher said the mandate of every Pastor or minister of the gospel has is to point non-believers to Christ Jesus as the Lord of life.
Secondly, he noted that the mandate of preachers is to show their congregations how to live for God.
Anything, he stated that is outside these two are not scriptural but a man’s orchestration to deceive his folks.
The True Vine owner and entrepreneur entreated the public not to live in fear by the predictions of doom by those he described as ‘’belly prophets’’, who he noted cast a spell on their gullible followers to milk them.
‘’The mandate of Preachers and Prophets is simple and it is to use God’s word to point people to Christ Jesus who is the Lord of life but not tell our members to bring funny items for breakthroughs and power’’, Rev Gyamfi noted.
Rev Gymafi sounding firm asked government to take the attitude of these prophets of doom seriously, adding that doom predictions from them would bring unnecessary tension in the country.
He noted that such attitudes by them could be classified as spreading fear and panic.
The experienced preacher said it is time government put in measures to stop all such prophesies concerning who will win the elections in December as well as what will happen in the country on public spaces.
‘’If you know who will win the December 7 elections and the doom which you predict will occur in the country as you claim share with your children and wives but don’t come and shout it on rooftops because not all of us trust you’’, Rev Gyamfi intimated.
