Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah has said that he no longer has a close contact with the president. Because President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo no longer pays attention to God.
In an interview that was uploaded on RTV Ghana’s YouTube page, the preacher known as “The Nation’s Prophet” is heard bemoaning how Akufo-attitude Addo’s toward spiritual matters has deteriorated.
Bempah stated that he followed the instructions that God gave him at the time when he was asked whether it was a mistake for him to have supported the President spiritually during his time in opposition.
He suggested that he was Samuel, a man simply instructed by God to anoint His chosen one, and that his current connection with the president was analogous to that of Saul and Samuel in the Bible. While Akufo-Addo represented Saul, the chosen one who disobeyed God and suffered hardships.
“Samuel was asked to anoint Saul to become King, things did not go well, things went rough and that was because Saul became stubborn and was not listening to God and Samuel, so Samuel distanced himself from Saul.
“When Samuel tried to intervene at a point, God asked him to stay off because Saul had showed disobedience and so I see that the pure heart Akufo-Addo for which God chose him, has changed.
“He doesn’t listen to God anymore, and the prayers that clergymen used to say for him, he doesn’t allow it any longer. So, if you like him to Saul, it is the same thing, Samuel was only instructed by God to anoint Saul because he was God’s own choice,” Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah stressed.
