Ghanaians have grown used to the ritual of strong and piercing prophecies by some prophets on every New Year’s Eve. Persons found guilty of making misleading prophecies causing fear and panics in Ghana.
The Ghana Police Service has however sounded a word of caution to prophets or pastors about prophecies in the country.
They have been advised to be measured in their utterances as regards prophetic statements, or risk serving a jail term of five years.
In view of the evoking by the IGP, the Chairman for Ambassadors for Christ Council, Apostle Ameyaw Mark has greeted the directive with prance of exigency, expressing in deep support.
In an interview with Appiah Kubi on Nyamekye Radio's 'Yɛdeɛ Mu Kaseɛ' he believes the IGP’s directive is in the right direction, though others believe prophets should be allowed to do their work without any restrictions.
“I support the IGP, some prophecies cause fear and panic, culprits of false prophecies should be arrested. If a prophet is led by the spirit, he should pray for the people instead of prophesying doom,” the Apostle reiterated.
He stated that some men of God are liars; they just use prophecies as a decoy to get money from people.
“If pastor or prophet wants to prophesy, they should pray and fast about it as his or her divine duty before misleading the people of Ghana,” he noted.
