Founder of New Jerusalem Chapel, Bishop John Yaw Adu, has accused Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah of stealing his prophecies.
The Bishop said he has observed that Owusu Bempah consistently waits for him to make his prophecies then he steals them.
He explained that, for this reason, he previously had a serious confrontation with his colleague pastor on television.
“For three years or four years now I have been engaged in a turf war with Owusu Bempah over prophecies.
“What he used to do was to wait for my prophecies and then he will pick them up and add his to the extent we had a serious confrontation on Adom TV,” Bishop J.Y Adu is quoted as saying by MyNewsGh.com.
He added: “The prophecies I gave days before New Year eve are those he listens to on YouTube and then claim it as his.
“When he was confronted on live radio he said I am a small boy and that he does not know me.”
Bishop J.Y Adu said Owusu Bempah has made it a habit to always steal his prophecies, adding that the latter got into trouble recently because he could not properly imitate his prophecies.
“He has been stealing my prophecies not today and we have been struggling over it. The day he does not properly steal my prophecies he gets into trouble like this one.”
Owusu Bempah, who is the leader of the Glorious Word and Power Ministries International, has come under the spotlight following certain predictions he made on December 31, 2018.
The pastor prophesied that a number of high-profile personalities may die in the year 2019.
He mentioned personalities like Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, ex-president John Mahama and the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu.
In reaction, some angry youth took the law into their own hands by storming Owusu Bempah’s church at Odorkor to vandalise properties.
