The Chairperson of Jaman North Local Council of Churches, who is also the Head Pastor of the Church of Pentecost, Sampa District Pastor Benjamin Nobi, noted that prophets of the country must desist from putting into the public domain the prophecies about people.
The man of God explained that prophets must apply wisdom to the delivery of prophecies so it does not create fear and panic.
In his view, if we want to maintain peace, religious tolerance and discipline, these things must stop.
The man of God referenced the bible and asked prophets to be guided by the ethics of their job and stop making public prophecies, especially the ones about the death of people.
Such prophecies he indicated must be between the one involved and the prophet and should not be made public.
These types of prophecies he opined have what it takes to create fear and panic, lead to violence, anarchy and prophets who do that must be arrested and prosecuted.
He recounted how a prophecy about the alleged death of the Chief Imam nearly led to a chaotic situation until Prophet Owusu Bempah, who prophesied had to apologize.
”God can reveal to redeem. But we must apply wisdom when delivering the prophecies. So if I see a vision concerning the death of an individual, I do not have to put it out in public. I have to call you and deal with you at a personal level.
I am not saying there is no prophecy, but we do not have to do that. If we are talking about peace, this thing must stop. Someone prophesied that the Chief Imam would die, and the Muslim youth went to his church to attack, and he had to apologize. Was his message from God?
We have to stop all these things and if the prophets don’t stop, they must be arrested and prosecuted.”
