Accra, Dec 01, GNA –
Apostle Joseph Felix Kwesi Mensah, Great Commission Church International (GCCI)
Executive Council Chairman, has cautioned Christians against false prophets.

He said false
prophets were agents of darkness, who were out there to deceive and lead astray
the flock of God.

Quoting from the
Bible, Apostle Mensah said: “Do not believe every spirit, but test the
spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone
out into the world.”

He said because
there were counterfeit prophets, and urged the Church to continue to test
prophecies using the Bible as the central point.

He said the genuine
prophetic ministry plays a major role in building the Body of Christ (the
Church).

Apostle Mensah gave
the caution over the weekend at GCCI’s 28th National Annual General Council
Meeting in Accra.

The four-day meeting
on the theme “Imitating Christ” is being attended by over 150 pastors
together with their wives, and presiding elders of the Church.

He noted that the
prophet is God’s mouthpiece and therefore, he must be a God-fearing person and
a man of integrity.

He said a prophet,
who does not fear God, had nothing to offer the Church.

Apostle Mensah said
the prophet of God must exhibit Christ likeness and must be led by the Holy
Spirit.

He said prophets
were to help build the people of God and not to scatter them.

Apostle Mensah said
the prophet must use his God-given ministry for the expansion of the kingdom of
God, especially in propagating the good news of Jesus Christ.

He urged prophets to
submit to the local authorities of their churches; stating that any prophet who
was not willing to submit to Church authorities must not be allowed to operate
in the Church.

Apostle Mensah
appealed to Church leaders to use the Bible as their yardstick in judging
prophecies.
