Presiding Archbishop and General Overseer of the Action Chapel International is cautioning pastors who take delight in foretelling elections, to be circumspect in their utterances as the 2020 elections draw near.
Such pastors, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams advised, should be discreet and must apply wisdom to whatever they see in the spiritual realm before making them public.
Some prophets have made it their business to predict which of the two leading political parties- New Patriotic Party (NPP) or National Democratic Congress (NDC) -would win the presidential and parliamentary elections.
But speaking Sunday night at The Maker’s House Chapel International, to dedicate the church’s newly built auditorium, Duncan-Williams said such tendencies have the potential to destabilise the country.
“Those in the prophetic office need to be wise and exercise discretions so you don’t lose your head… I’m praying for you that in 2020 you will be wise and you will have wisdom in your utterances,” the Archbishop appealed.
Earlier, Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, commended the leadership of the church, for the hard work and sacrifice that inspired the building of the ‘magnificent edifice’.
Dr Bawumia further thanked the Christian community in the country for the many roles they have played in the governance of the country over the past decades.
“We [government] will continue to collaborate to seek advice from the church on many more issues in our quest to develop our country,” he indicated.
He also commended religious groups in the country for the peaceful coexistence which he urged the citizenry to cherish and protect.
“We much protect such inter-religious heritage and a make Ghana a good place for such inter-religious heritage,” Dr Bawumia added.
The Maker’s House Chapel
The newly-built auditorium of The Maker’s House Chapel International sits approximately 5,000 congregants and was constructed in a record time of about a year. Congregants moved to the new location which is adjacent to the School of Allied and Nuclear Sciences on the Dome-Haatso road in September 2019.
According to the Founder and General Overseer, Dr Michael Boadi Nyamekye, in 1998, the vision of The Maker’s House was given but it stayed in the hatchery until it was birthed on 28th October 8, 2011, as a prayer fellowship with about 80 people.
The prayer fellowship dubbed Morning Aura attracted hundreds and became a reference point and a place of prayer for many in the Christian faith.
The Maker’s House Chapel International subsequently became a full-blown Church after a year of running as a fellowship.
Due to the deep revelatory insights in the word of God, The Maker’s House Chapel International continues to enjoy phenomenal growth in membership with thousands of registered members.
This growth of the church prompted the leadership to look for a bigger space. A vast land was then acquired in the prime area of the city, a few kilometres from the old venue at Point 1, Kwabenya.
