Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah has revealed that he is no longer close to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo because the president is no longer listening to God.
In an interview posted on RTV Ghana’s YouTube channel, the preacher known as “The Nation’s Prophet” is heard lamenting how Akufo-attitude Addo toward God has deteriorated.
When asked if he was mistaken to have spiritually supported the President during his opposition days, Bempah insisted that he did what God told him to do at the time.
He compared his current relationship with the president to Saul and Samuel in the Bible, claiming to be Samuel – a man simply directed by God to anoint His chosen one. Whiles Akufo-Addo was Saul, the chosen one who disobeyed God and was punished.
“When Samuel was asked to anoint Saul as president, things did not go well; things got rough because Saul became stubborn and refused to listen to God and Samuel; as a result, Samuel distanced himself from Saul.”
“When Samuel tried to intervene at one point, God told him to stay off because Saul had shown disobedience, and so I see that the pure heart for which Akufo-Addo was chosen has changed.”
“He no longer listens to God, and the prayers that clergymen used to say for him, he no longer allows.” So, if you compare him to Saul, it is the same thing; Samuel was only told by God to anoint Saul because he was God’s choice,” he emphasized.
