Deaths at TB Joshua's church were sacrifices - Rev. Bempah

The Head Pastor of Glorious Word Power Ministries, Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah, has released another bombshell about renowned Nigerian prophet, Prophet T. B. Joshua.

Rev. Owusu Bempah claims, Presidents who befriend the Nigerian prophet, head of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), with a congregation of several hundred thousand, either die before their time or experience war in their countries.

As well, Rev. Owusu Bempah insists the four deaths, which occurred last Sunday at the Ghana branch of SCOAN, were not normal, but the victims had been used for rituals by the Prophet.

He said although Pastors like Benny Hinn, T.D Jakes, Oyedepo all command huge crowds when they visit various countries, there are no stampedes at their events.

Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah made these claims on Adom TV’s Badwam morning show on Monday.

Four people died, and 30 others were injured at the Spintex road location of SCOAN Ghana during last Sunday’s church service after a stampede to receive supposedly anointed water from Prophet T.B Joshua.

According to DSP Freeman Tetteh, Greater Accra Regional Police PRO, the stampede occurred despite the presence of Police, Military and Fire Service personnel, who were overwhelmed by the sudden surge of people.

He explained that, lots of people gathered in and around the church when they heard that there was going to be sharing of anointing water.

The Ghana Police Service has commenced investigations into the matter, he said, adding that no arrest has been made.

Contributing to the panel discussion, the MP for Dade-Kotopon, Hon. Nii Amasah Namoale maintained that God has stopped speaking through his Prophets after the coming of Jesus Christ but rather speaks through the books of the New Testament.

He agreed with Rev Owusu Bempah that Prophet T.B. Joshua has not been sent by God but is only seeking attention to expand his church.
