The General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God Church, Reverend Dr. Paul Frimpong Manso, has hit hard at preachers who sell special things like ‘anointing oil’ or ‘holy water’ that is supposed to lead to a miracle.
Rev Frimpong Manso laid into those preachers, unequivocally describing them as fake. He said there’s nothing in the bible indicating Jesus sold oil for any miracle cures, and in any case, miracles should be free.
He spoke on Joy News program PM Express.
“I have seen on television and heard on radio people selling water, selling oil, selling anything; these are false things, miracles are free, and I am saying it without any apology, if anybody tells you to come and buy oil, come and buy this or that, I am declaring as a matter of the word of God that that guy is fake.”
“Jesus Christ never sold oil” he added. “where in the Bible do we see people selling (oil)? I believe in anointing and God anoints people but the oil for that anointing is a symbolism. There is no power in those oils and water no matter where they come from; whether from Israel or Jordan.”
Rev Frimpong Manso’s ire is directed at these preachers, whom I describe as ‘latter day preachers’; whose churches run like businesses and the customers are sold all sorts of miracle cures such as oil, water, handkerchiefs, and many more.
