As a new year beckons, the first week, as usual, will not be devoid of news of numerous ‘Prophets’ displaying their prophetic prowess.
31st December Watch Night or Cross Over service are mostly the venue where “men of God” and “prophets” are seen making declaration of projected happenings in the upcoming year. This act has soon become a ritual which is felt and experienced every now and then.
It’s so convincing how men of God and prophets during 31st December service last year made projections into year 2020, made known the sure happenings to the general public and yet still, none of them saw the occurrence of a virus (COVID-19) lurking, till it pounced on us.
It has gotten so interesting to the point where prophets and men of God keep their prophecies to themselves or only tell the few people around them. With the fear that the general public will descend on them if none of what they declared happens. And rather come out with videos and voice note to defend their ownership to the occurrence of an event.
Year 2020 hasn’t been an exception. Prophesies of how the general elections will go and who the next President elect will be. Most of these prophesies came as false, in that, the happenings in the general elections wasn’t what they said was going to happen, with self acclaimed men of God coming out to defend their prophecies.
Has Christianity gone that low for for self acclaimed men of God to come out to defend their failed prophesies. One thing that baffles is the last statement they add to their doom prophesies, “if you do not pray”. Does that mean if it happens, none of the Ghanaians prayed?
During 31st December night services, hardly will you hear positive prophesies of what the new or approaching year has in stock for us, rather, what we hear is doom, death, tragedy and it’s like. Is God that wicked to send us misfortune each year?
We’re yet to know what these prophets are preparing to tell us when we gather together to say Thank You to God for seeing us through a successful year.
