Rev. Isaac Owusu-Bempah has thrown an open challenge to sensational fetish priest Nana Kwaku Bonsam to face him in a spiritual contest to see which of them was more powerful.
He said that the competition should be held at the compound of his church, the Glorious Word Ministry International in Accra.
Owusu-Bempah has given a full assurance that the outcome of the contest would be similar to what happened between Prophet Elijah and the 450 prophets of Baal in the bible.
The Man of God threw the open challenge after NEWS-ONE reported that Kwaku Bonsam had recommended he should go for a ritual bath at midnight on the banks of a river.
“He, Kwaku Bonsam said he would have a ritual bath for me. I am challenging him to show his face. I would cast out the demons in him and destroy his idols.
I would exorcise him of all his spirits. If he is a man, he should show his face and show what powers he has.
It would be like what Elijah did to the prophets of Baal. I would deliver him. He is satanic.
“I won’t go and face him in his shrine and I don’t want a neutral venue. I want him to come to my church. I won’t even take him into the church auditorium.
I would deal with him right on the compound,” Rev. Owusu-Bempah noted in Twi.
When NEWS-ONE reached Kwaku Bonsam over the challenge from Owusu-Bempah, he said no serious spiritualist would publicly throw a challenge to face another spiritualist.
Kwaku Bonsam also spoke in Twi: “I am sure he is a magician because no serious pastor would talk like that.
Owusu-Bempah should go and read what I said. I said he is misbehaving because there is an evil spirit worrying him.
It is called the spirit of pride so he should go to a genuine pastor for deliverance but if he feels too big to go to another pastor, then he should go the traditional way and get a traditional person to bath him by the riverside at midnight.
I said if he does not find any traditionalist, then I am ready to help him to do the ritual bath to cleanse him.
“If this statement is what is making him challenge me to a spiritual battle, then I am ready to face him. Tell him I said his church is too small.
Let’s use a bigger venue because he would be the prophet of Baal on that day. The prophets of Baal challenged God, I have not challenged God.
“How can he call for a battle and then he goes ahead to decide the venue?
That is cowardice. He should not waste my time and make me travel from New York to Ghana then he starts giving excuses.
I wish we would get a lawyer to sign an agreement so that he does not change his mind when I come,” Bonsam noted.
Rev. Owusu-Bempah, in recent times, has come under fire after he went public with claims that God had revealed to him that President John Mahama would die a premature death this year.
He has however stood his ground and insisted his prophecy would come true unless special prayers were said for the President.
It was in the heat of the controversy surrounding the prophecy that Bonsam recommended a ritual bath for the reverend.
