It is now evident that every religious leader wants to show their might by hinting how they foresaw the deadly coronavirus way before it arrived.
Over the past few days, every pastor now claims to have received some ‘revelation’ of this menace. This doesn’t come as a surprise though, we would all not mind having an extra tithing for revelations right?
Well, there is a controversial man of God who is now claiming he prophesied about the virus in his church but couldn’t mention its name since it wasn’t a familiar disease.
Having infected several people across the globe and killed thousands in China, this is a sure bet to giving the man of God some religious mileage.
Rev. Owusu Bempah said he knew it was going to be a major outbreak in view of God’s revelation to him.
“I stood in my church and stated that a deadly disease will kill a lot of people in 2020 if we do not pray passionately. But I didn’t mention the name ‘coronavirus’ because I had never heard the name. What I know is Malaria, Hepatitis B and BP,”
“Even if God had mentioned the name of the disease to me as ‘coronavirus I wouldn’t have been able to pronounce it. Even now I find it very difficult to mention the name rightly,” he said.
Pastor Owusu joins thousands of religious leaders who are claiming that the virus is not ordinary and many should heed to the gospel now more than ever.
The World Health Organization reports that the cases in China seem to be slowing as the virus spreads globally.
Do you think the pastor sentiments are genuine? Could he have had the revelation and this is only a stand to make him relevant?
