Private legal practitioner, Maurice Ampaw has urged Prophets and men of God in the Prophetic Ministry not to be cowed into silence due to the arrest by the Ghana Police Service on some of their colleagues. He argued that the challenge as visited on them under the new Inspector-General of Police, Dr George Akufo Dampare presents a brighter opportunity for them to make some money.
According to Mr Maurice Ampaw, nothing must stop Prophets from delivering God’s message, adding that the truth always prevails. He however cautioned against manipulations by some men of God often using false prophetic antics and predictions to inflict fear in others so they can defraud them.
He mentioned on Wontumi TV that the public will be very much receptive to prophecies that speak well about lives and pronounce hope for a better future than death and doom prophecies. Lawyer Maurice Ampaw urged Ghanaian prophets to innovate and adopt a new strategy to respond to IGP Dampare’s restrictions.
He clarified that it would be useful for Prophets to invite people for whom they had seen terrible things to their churches for spiritual guidance and redemption than to announce publicly. He believed the IGP has given them a brilliant opportunity to make some good money through their prophetic ministration.
“People will pay consultation fees, and take the prophecies seriously. What Dampare and his men are doing is rather going to make you rich.
“Just prophesy the truth. Stick to the gospel, and find ways and means to communicate the negative ones to the people. So the prophecies about death could cause fear and alarm, just call the person and deliver the message. You can really make some good money out of it.”
He mentioned that prophecies are good for nation-building, and should be encouraged. He emphasized that the importance of prophets cannot be overemphasized.
Abusive Circuit Court Judge and Judgement Debts
Lawyer Ampaw corrected that IGP Dr Dampare cannot be faulted for the arrest he is making on Prophets. In his view, there ought to be some sanity in the prophetic ministry.
He however blamed the Accra Circuit Court judge in the Jesus Ahoefe and Shatta Wale case for being abusive of his office when he remanded them for a week. Lawyer Ampaw reckoned that there is a directive offered by Justice Dotse and some eminent justices of the Supreme Court.
Lawyer Ampaw stressed those cases as Shatta Wale’s shouldn’t have ended with a remand. He intimated that the remand is simply needless and an abuse of the freedoms of the accused. He argued that Shatta Wale’s case could result in some judgement debts as a result of the needless remand.
