Archbishop Charles Agyinasare, founder of the Perez Chapel, has expressed thankfulness to God for giving him life despite being given only 14 days to live.
In his opening message to Church members on December 31, 2023, the respected man of God announced that the struggles and experiences he went through would be a step towards experiencing God’s might in 2024.
Although he did not directly refer to the contentious issue with the Nogokpo, the man of God stated that he was assigned 14 days to live but has lived beyond those days.
He was preaching under the theme “2024 My Year of God’s Power”
The Chiefs and people of Nogokpo in the Ketu South Municipality gave Archbishop Charles Agyinasare a 14-day ultimatum to appear before them to settle a dispute over some statements he made.
During a news conference to discuss the problem, Nufialaga Mawufemor Korbla Nonyigbey, the convenor of the community, voiced worry about the archbishop’s lack of remorse or regret.
“The Archbishop in his second sermon and clarification showed no remorse or regretfulness, an indication that he deliberately decided to tarnish the good reputation of the people of Nogokpo and a calculated damage mechanism of the usual religious intolerance to weaken African Traditional Religion”.
The utterances of the Archbishop about Nogokpo being the “Demonic Headquarters” of the Volta Region is rather unfortunate, as “Nogokpo is situated along the ECOWAS Highway where thousands of vehicles carrying humans and goods ply on a daily basis but had not encountered any derogatory comment from such road users”.
Archbishop Agyinasare, while preaching, stated that ‘I was given 14 days to live, but I am still alive’, adding that the experiences we have gone through are a step towards 2024 to experience God’s power.
He also indicated that in Ghana, we witnessed economic challenges and the Volta spillage, which added to our challenges.
The Perez Chapel, he revealed, went to the aid of the victims by donating towards the construction of a building to house those who were affected by the spillage and also donated relief items.
Archbishop Charles Agyinasare on the third day of the Supernatural Summit held at the headquarters of Perez Chapel in Accra on Thursday, May 25, 2023 preached about divine protection and the existence of evil forces.
During the event, he disclosed that when they got to Nogokpo, the tyres under the four-wheel drive they were using came out under the car.
According to him, the incident occurred after they had preached about witchcraft and destroyed their works on the second night of the crusade at Aflao.
“Nogokpo is the demonic headquarters of the Volta Region. We only have not said it but the second night, I made Bishop Yaw Adu talk about witchcraft, and we disgraced the witches and the wizards. When we were driving from Aflao to Agbozume, immediately we got to Nogopko, Bishop Yaw Adu’s four-wheel drive, the tyres came out from under the car.”
“During this crusade in Aflao… we slept at Agbozume, that was where our hotel was, and you have to go through Nogokpo. And Nogokpo is the demonic headquarters in the Volta Region, he added.
