Mystery Of Letter ‘J’… Will God Choose Another ‘J’ For Ghana?

A lot has been said about the name John which has firmly become synonymous with the Presidency of Ghana. The question really is: ‘Is it about the name John or the letter ‘J’?

For a long period in history, a number of leaders chosen for Ghana have had the name John. This is a mystery that goes beyond the ability of the living.

In a gospel song titled ‘The letter ‘J’, a Ghanaian musician gives a Biblical anecdote to the mystery behind the letter ‘J’.

I present to the general public, an unedited lyrics of the song composed and sang with an African traditional tune by Michael Adangba:

‘The letter ‘J’

The mystery around the letter J shall continue to baffle humanity, The J mystery.

Who Jah Bless, no one curse… Obiara Onyame ahyira no no, nipa ntumi nse3 no da. (2x)

In the beginning, Jehovah created the world.

He chose Jacob as his faithfully friend. Jacob chose Joseph as his beloved son.

When the devil wanted to test the faith of men, Job was selected and he proved the devil wrong.

When the Jews were moving to the promise land, they met the walls, the walls of Jericho.

Joshua led the Jews to sing around the wall. Because of Jehovah and it collapsed.

Who Jah Bless, no one curse... Obiara Onyame ahyira no no, nipa ntumi nse3 no da. (2x)

When the Jews came to settle, they made Jerusalem their capital.

When Jehovah wanted to dwell among men, He chose Jesus His Begotten Son.

It is a mystery that Jesus had to be born from Judea to Joseph. His brothers were James and John.

He was baptized in River Jordan by John the Baptist.

The ‘J’ mystery

He was betrayed by Judas Iscariot.

When all others failed to compile the Bible, only King James succeeded.

Who Jah Bless, no one curse... Obiara Onyame ahyira no no, nipa ntumi nse3 no da. (2x)

Then not long ago, when there was no Justice in this country, Ghana, Jehovah chose Jerry John Rawlings. He made a revolt in June, ruled and handed over to John Agyekum Kufour in January.

It was not surprising that John Agyekum Kufour had to hand over to John Evans Atta Mills in January.

By God’s Will, John Evans Atta Mills was born and called into glory in the month July.

After this letter ‘J’, what’s next?

Will Jehovah change or He will continue?

God is good; He knows what is good for us.

It is Jehovah who chooses a King!

Who Jah Bless, no one curse... Obiara Onyame ahyira no no, nipa ntumi nse3 no da. (2x)
