Prophecies have become a thorny issue with celebrities in the last few years and quite a number of them have been fighting prophets over it.
While some of the celebrities have issues with the preachers for what seems to be only negative prophecies they make, others are unhappy that such prophecies are made openly, whether on TV, on radio, or sometimes even on social media.
This has generated distrust for prophets and their prophecies but the General Overseer of the Royal Victory Family Church, Kwabenya in Accra, Apostle Dr Solomon Oduro, has asked celebrities not to totally discount prophecies from men of God.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Apostle Oduro said ignoring prophecies from men of God could be dangerous especially if they are genuine.
“I have had a lot of prophecies about people and I either call them to my office to pray with me or I pray for them. In that way, I cancel any calamity that is about to happen to the person because God reveals to redeem.”
“I prefer to lay low but I guess all men of God are not the same. I choose to stay in my little corner and do the work of God,” he stated.
Apostle Oduro also indicated that when prophecies come, it is always the best to hear what it is about than to totally ignore it.
“Just listen to the message first and if you feel you need to talk about it with the man of God you believe, fair enough, but totally ignoring it can be dangerous,” he said.
Apostle Solomon Oduro, who normally invites Gospel musicians to perform at his church, advised musicians to engage in other businesses.
“Most of the musicians are my friends and I always advise them to engage in other ventures in addition to music. In this way, they will not be found wanting when the music is no longer working for them.”
“As a man of God, I do other businesses such as farming and real estate just to keep me going,” he added.
