The private residence of Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah, Founder and General Overseer of Glorious World Power Ministries International, at Sakumono in Accra, was invaded in the early hours of Sunday by some persons suspected to be thugs with a sinister motive.
The thugs, who were fully armed, according to the pastor, did not take anything away after several minutes of combing the house.
The man of God had been dropping jaw-breaking prophesies for 2013, warning against calamities.
Speaking to DAILY GUIDE, Rev. Bempah said his alleged attackers were six in number, five men and a woman and he suspected that they were not Ghanaians because of their accent.
He said they stormed the house, looking very aggressive and tried to break into his room but they could not, adding that “they broke into two of my cars and picked my Samsung galaxy tab and £10,000. But they later left the money and the Samsung galaxy tab on the car seats and left.”
Rev. Bempah noted that he had reported the case to the Sakumono police station for investigation.
He explained that before the incident, someone who he described as a politician, called to inform him last Friday that he should be careful because some group of people were plotting evil against him.
According to him, the politician was of the opinion that his life and that of his family were under threat because of the prophecies he had been making recently.
However, Rev. Bempah said he would not be deterred by whatever anybody or group of persons was planning against him, saying, “I will say whatever God has asked me to say and will not keep silent or twist words to favour anybody or group”.
He warned that if anybody tried to touch him or his family because of his revelations, they would face the wrath of God, adding that “I am a man of God and nobody can touch me and go scot-free. God will surely deal with that person. So anybody who thinks he is more powerful than God should attempt it”.
Rev Bempah recently cautioned President John Dramani Mahama to seek spiritual intervention against a looming tragedy.
The revelation was part of the 42 prophecies he told his congregation on the December 31, 2012 watch night service.
He told DAILY GUDIE that the president should not take the prophecy lightly but he should rather be submissive and seek divine protection.
The man of God last year allegedly prophesied about the demise of President John Mills and Alhaji Aliu Mahama among other things.
He was reported to have prophesied about the plane crash that took place at the El-Wak Stadium, and that of Nigeria which killed over 160 people.
He had also predicted that the December 7, 2012 elections would be won by the NPP but claimed power would elude them because of certain acts by the EC.
Among his 2013 prophecies which he made on December 31, 2012 are the death of a former president and first lady of Ghana, a speaker of Parliament among other prominent people including chiefs and politicians.
Others were death of a former president of South Africa, death of former president of US, death of a popular Bishop in Ghana, death of one of the Supreme Court Justices, death of a Nigeria president, and more accidents with heavy death tolls and fire outbreaks.
Rev. Bempah said all these calamities could be averted through prayers.
“Prayer can stop all these misfortunes from happening. God reveals to redeem so if we pray fervently as a nation all these calamities will not befall the nation”.
He said that the country was sitting on a time bomb.
That, he said, was because some people did not accept the installation of the president and were waiting for the outcome of the court ruling to decide what to do.
Rev. Bempah said, “This shows that the country is not peaceful yet, because anything can happen after the court ruling so we must continue to pray for the nation. Nobody should think that we have sworn in the president so there is peace”.
He called on President Mahama to come out openly and state that he was ready to accept the outcome of the court case just as the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, had done for the sake of peace.
However, he indicated that the NPP would win its petition at the Supreme Court if the judges followed the path of righteousness.
Rev. Bempah asked the judges to be fair in their judgment for the sake of the nation’s peace.
He refuted the assertion that he was an NPP sympathizer.
“I am not a supporter of NDC or NPP, I only say what God has revealed to me and I am not afraid of threats from any human being. Nobody can touch me if God does not permit it”.
