“Be careful with bogus prophets, who come to you in sheep’s garments however deep down are covetous wolves. You will remember them by their natural products. Are grapes accumulated from thornbushes or figs from thorns? Matthew 7:15-16”
The above is a typical statement found on the lips of book of scriptures accepting individuals or Christians, at whatever point the discussion of bogus prophets emerges.
As per Ephesians 4:11, the congregation is talented with five-overlap serves to be specific the messengers, prophets, evangelists, ministers, and educators. Every one of them is exceptional and unmistakable.
Throughout the years, there has been an unexpected increment in the quantity of prophets in Ghana, with the greater part of them being proprietors of some TV and radio broadcasts.
Despite the fact that the Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) has spoken unequivocally against the multiplication of these bogus prophets who are hauling Christianity in the mud as well as representing a danger to national security considering a few comments they’ve made, it appears that has failed to attract anyone’s attention.
On the rear of this, Ghanaians have been solicited to be watchful from the exercises of self-acclaimed prophets so as not to be found as exploited people.

The extravagant vehicle as indicated by a report by Zionfelix has 3 TV sets, a room, a kitchen, a washroom, an ice chest, a front room, and numerous different things.
In the video, the organizer and pioneer of the Anointed Palace Church (APC), together with his better half known as Obofowaa, Auntie Bea of Efie Wura notoriety, Pastor One Blow (previous Obinim’s correct hand man), and others are spotted moving to Medikal’s melody ‘Omo Ada’ and ‘Stevie Wonder’ by Wendy Shay ft Shatta Wale.

His better half wearing long shimmery clothing and noticeably red long nails is additionally observed showering money on herself on the transport.
A few pundits have said the direct is extremely hostile to the standards of Christianity.
“By their organic products, ye will know them, and you don’t should be told la,” one Akuffobea remarked under Zionfelix’s post.
“The end will legitimize the methods. Animalistic righteous man,” mood_ghana likewise composed.
“Eerrrmm so there is in no way like common music all things considered,” Jeezygh said.
Are Ghanaians expected to cling to what the good book says in Psalm 105:15 that peruses “don’t contact my blessed ones; do my prophets no damage,” and remain calm? Or then again they ought to be residents however not onlookers henceforth should pundit the way of life of godly men.
