Helen Adjoa Ntoso, the Member of Parliament for the Krachi West constituency, has responded swiftly to Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah, the General Overseer of the Glorious Word Power Ministry, describing him as the number one demon in Ghana.
According to the Krachi West lawmaker who is also the immediate past Volta Regional Minister, the allegation by Rev Bempah that a known political person has unleashed demons to manipulate the economy of Ghana hence the prevailing economic hardship in the country, made him rather the most known demon among the four demons he claimed to have been imported.
Rev Bempah in an interview with an Accra based private radio station, Rainbow Radio, claimed, the person who imported the evil spirits in question has intentions of ascending into a high office he once occupied but lost after the people of Ghana overwhelmingly voted him out(reference to John Mahama), ” the RadioStation reportedly quoted.
However, Speaking to some Journalists on the matter in parliament in Accra last Wednesday, Hon Ntoso who is also a Revered Minister with Mount Horeb Victorious Church International, Mamfe Akuapem, said, the allegation which is indirectly targeted at former President John Mahama, was not only uncalled for but non Christian.
Citing several Biblical quotations to buttress her point, the MP said, Jesus has given Christians the authority to go out preach the Good News of God Word, health and deliver the people from Spirit attach and charged the Mr Bempah to use his prophetic powers to preach good news to the people and deliver them from the evil spirit in the country.
The Holy Bible quoted Jesus telling His followers, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16:15-18)
Mrs Ntoso again referred Rev Bempah to the Bible where Jesus spoke to the Disciples , saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
She added that, righteous people like Joseph, Daniel and Jesus Himself demonstrated their righteousness when they were confronted with trials and challenges, and challenged Owusu Bempah, to exhibit his righteousness and cast out the demons if indeed he is a man of God.
“If Rev Owusu Bempah said there are four evil spirits or demons imported into the country by the previous government to make the country economy hardship and he claimed to be a Prophet but cannot drive the demons away, then he is one of them.”
” I am saying that, Rev Owusu Bempah is the number one of the four demons, if not he should be able to cast them out as a righteous man of God, he should deliver us from these four demons.
Hon Ntoso challenged Mr Bempah to cast the demons if indeed he is a man of righteousness and without blemish, stating, if you are righteous man then face the demons and drive them away.”
“But if he is unable to cast them, it means he is one of them, because demon cannot drive its fellow away. I challenged him to use his prophecy powers to cast out the demons in Ghana, you can’t live with a demon if you are not one of them,” Helen Ntoso challenged.
The former regional Minister said Mr Bempah is not a true prophet from God but one of those charlatans that have been described in the Bible as false prophets.
She quoted Ezekiel 13:2-4 which states, “Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying. Say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination: ‘Hear the word of the Lord. This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing. 4 Your prophets, Israel, are like jackals among ruins, ” she quoted.
The book of Jeremiah 23: 116-17, also states, ” This is what the Lord of Hosts says: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you. They are making you worthless. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the Lord’s mouth. They keep on saying to those who despise Me, ‘The Lord has said: You will have peace.’ They have said to everyone who follows the stubbornness of his heart, ‘No harm will come to you.”
She admonished the self acclaimed man of God who have been on air making unsubstantiated statements to let his words be guarded by God and mankind as his actions and utterance sought to rain down Christianity and dammed the powers of true believers of God.
