We’re willing to help Obinim - Rev. Korankye Ankrah

The Apostle General of the Royal House Chapel Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah has said he and other pastors in the country are willing to “help” controversial miracle worker Bishop Daniel Obinim who claims to possess powers of transfiguration.

The General Overseer of the International Godsway Ministries has dominated discussions on social media after a video of him went viral, boasting he once transformed into a snake with Jesus by his side who also transformed into a lion.

Commenting on the matter on Starr Chat with Bola Ray Wednesday, the charismatic preacher who described Obinim’s claims as “sad” and pure “magic” said he will however not condemn him.

“We are willing to help him if only he will allow it. We won’t give up on him and we haven’t condemned him as well".

That notwithstanding, he stressed “Obinim’s assertion is “unbiblical, unchristian, magic and I don’t know what came up of him.”

The man of God noted it is difficult to regulate the activities of the church since a lot of the men of God are “freelancers”, stressing most of these clergies “must be made to belong to one of these council overseeing bodies.”

Rev. Ankrah stated: “And people are making fun and I feel ashamed and the question is who is bringing the preacher [Obinim] to book. Who is ensuring before you mount the pulpit you are qualified and licensed to do that.

“These people are not members of our Council and it’s difficult to stretch our hands. They are freelancers and it is [difficult to deal with them]. Everyone who is leading people by preaching must be made to belong to one of these council overseeing bodies so when they go to that excesses they are checked.”
