Desist From False Prophecies — Kufuor Tells Pastors

John-Agyekum-KufuorFormer President John Agyekum Kufuor has urged church leaders to desist from giving false prophecies, saying, such practice impacts negatively on society.

False prophecies, he noted, put fear in people, and therefore urged prophets to be mindful of what prophecies they give.

Former President Kufuor said this at the graduation of 14 prophets from the Nhyira Prophetic Institute in Accra on Saturday.

“Preach the truth, do not put fear in the minds of people by false prophecies but rather let them know that through God, there is a solution to every problem or challenges,” he said.

Mr. Kufuor said God has given every individual the brain and wisdom to use effectively, especially men of God since they have been ordained to lead and save the perishing souls for Christ.

He appealed to them to seek the face of God and ask Him for wisdom and not material things, advising them to emulate King Solomon who asked God for wisdom to rule his kingdom.

Ex-President Kufuor congratulated the graduands and encouraged them to be disciplined, good ambassadors of Christ and avoid any activities that would tarnish the image of God.

The founder of the institute, Prophetess Mrs. Jules Nhyira Wallace, said there was the need to train people who have been called by God as prophets in order to guide them to work effectively.

She admitted that although there had been some false prophecies yet there have been genuine ones.

To buttress her point, she quoted Mathew 12:33: “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognised by its fruit”. By Agnes Opoku Sarpong
