The Head Pastor of the Redemption Gospel Ministry based in the Navrongo in the Northern Region, Pastor Alan Kwesi Nazantra, has passionately appealed to the General Overseer of the Glorious Way Chapel, Rev Isaac Owusu-Bempah, to refrain from unfairly criticising and passing judgment on the famous Nigerian Prophet, T.B Joshua.
“Our common enemy is the devil, and so we should stop attacking, fighting and accusing one another. As Christians, we should rather come together and fight the enemy, and to ensure that the gospel is preached to the lost souls,” he said.
According to him, the attacks on T. B Joshua, the Head Pastor of the Synagogue Church in Nigeria by Isaac Owusu-Bempah accusing him of using satanic powers, was unfortunate.
“I will humbly advise him to carefully read the Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to teach and direct him to know exactly who the true prophets are. Let us not judge, according to the Bible. He should search the scriptures rather than devoting his time to launch an attack on the man of God for no reason.”
T. B Joshua was attacked by Owusu-Bempa following the collapse of portions of his guest house a couple of weeks ago.
However, Pastor Kwesi Nazantra, who indicated that the attacks on his mentor were unfortunate, told news men: “The church hostel building never collapsed because of structure failures, and if it were so, the whole building would have collapsed. The strange aircraft flew over it four times before the building collapsed within a twinkle of an eye, which was earlier on prophesised by T B Joshua. It, however, beats my imagination that people, especially Owusu-Bempah, whose prophecies never come to pass, subject the renowned prophet to public ridicule. We must see him as the redeemer,” he said.
Quoting various scriptures to buttress his point, Pastor Kwesi Alan Nazantra, opined that the wrong impressions created about the Nigerian prophet was nothing but pure jealously and envy.
“This is the man who casts out demons, as demonstrated in the Bible by Jesus Christ. The power is given to T.B. Joshua, and so it would be good for him to learn from his feats by watching his programmes,” he counseled.
He further challenged Owusu Bempa to tell the world the number of his prophecies that had come to fruition.
“T.B. Joshua does not attack, condemn or accuse anyone. I will passionately appeal to him to watch Emmanuel TV, and follow the U-Tube of the Synagogue Church, and he would see that T.B. Joshua is, indeed, the true man of God. He does what humanity demands, and goes according to the will of God. It is, however, incredible that people who are supposed to know better, are rather gullible and misinform others,” he said.
Stating that may the Lord continue to protect and provide the divine grace to cover T.B. Joshua, Pastor Kwesi Nazantra defended the Nigeria Pastor over the recent incident.
“T.B. saw the clouds and prophesised that danger looms in Nigeria close to his church. He saw the trouble, and it was reported by CNN, which stated categorically that a strange aircraft would fly four times over the building before it collapsed, and it happened. What prophecy has Owusu-Bempah said and has come to pass? He should be bold enough to tell Ghanaians his prophecies that manifested, instead of engaging in [the] pull him down syndrome,” he said.
According to him, T. B Joshua, after his revelation, stated that he was the target of the attack, but he asked the Lord for His will to be done.
“He told us that he asked the Lord to let his will be done, because he has not finished his work, and indeed it came to pass.”
Pastor Kwesi Nazantra, who stated that he was not ready to attack or subject men of God to any criticisms, said he was forced to react because of the actions of Rev Owusu-Bempah.
Quoting the book of Deuteronomy chapter 18 vrs 20-22 to advance his argument, he said they should leave T.B. Joshua alone to avoid the wrath of God.
“He has been chosen as an ordained prophet of God, and I will caution all to be careful of the way we talk about him. The incident that happened was unfortunate, but it must be put on record that it was a prophecy that came to pass.”
He termed, as a disgrace, the claim by the Ghanaian Reverend that the unfortunate incident, and the subsequent deaths of people at the SCOAN Church Headquarters in Ikotun, Lagos State, was an act of human sacrifice.
