Madam Nyonkopa Daniels, Executive Director of Peace Watch Ghana, has slammed those who are criticising Inspector-General of Police Dr. George Akuffo Dampare for directing prophets and other religious leaders to refrain from illegally communicating prophecies.
Some prophets have argued that the directive was a way of preventing the men of God from prophesying.
But Madam Nyankopa Daniels says such arguments are unfounded.
In her view, prophetic ministry is part of our Christian faith. However, some persons have taken advantage of that and abused the system, creating fear and panic, and the Police administration under the current IGP applied the law.
“Do not engage in prophecies that will cause fear and panic,” she said. If you have a prophecy about someone, go to that person and deliver it. Because no one is more powerful than the Almighty God, prophets must be guided.
Because fear can kill, prophets must be held accountable. They should learn how to communicate prophecies in order to avoid problems and confusion. Nobody has been prevented from prophesying by the IGP. He is deeply religious, but prophets must act correctly”.
