Prophet calls for probe into Stars’ performance

The Kumasi-based prophet, Stephen Adom Kyei-Duah, who said the Black Stars were going to qualify for the Round of 16 at the ongoing World Cup in Brazil, has asked for a probe into Ghana’s campaign at the competition.

He said even though he had prophesied that Ghana was going to proceed to the next stage of the competition, events in camp preceding the match against Portugal may have incurred the wrath of God, thereby denying the country that glory.

Reacting to the failed prophecy in an interview with Graphic Online, Prophet Kyei-Duah said “if God had a blessing for you and you don’t prepare yourself to receive it, you should expect that blessing to elude you”.

Ghana’s participation at the World Cup ended on June 26, 2014, when the Black Stars were beaten 2-1 by Portugal.

Prophet Kyei-Duah called on Ghanaians to sit back and ask questions on what actually happened and prepare well for future tournaments.

God’s wrath
He said the wrangling in camp, agitations over money (appearance fee) and indiscipline were issues that could have incurred the wrath of God for Him to decide to snatch victory and glory from Ghana.

Prophet Kyei-Duah contended that “prophesies do not automatically happen. It does not work like that; you must condition yourself and work on it,” he said

Nonetheless, he said the fact that the first two prophecies on Ghana’s matches with the USA and Germany were fulfilled meant that God had already done it, adding, however, that “when someone is giving you something and you do not prepare yourself for it, you lose it. Man proposes but God disposes,” he stressed.

Prophet Kyei-Duah asked for a post-mortem of the Black Stars performance, arguing further that the prophecy aside, the morale of the team in the USA and Germany matches was high, which was indicative of a better performance, only for the team to slump in the Portugal match.

“I have given a lot of prophecies and many of them were correctly predicted. I do not see why someone should say I am a false prophet,” he said.

He claimed to have been prophesying since 2009 and that many of those prophecies had been fulfilled.

Latest prophesy
Prophet Kyei-Duah had prophesied at a church service at his Believers Worship Centre at Kenyasi in Kumasi as far back as December 31, 2013, that God had revealed to him that the Black Stars were going all the way to the semi-finals.

“One loss, one draw, one win. Ghana will go to the next stage of the tournament with four points. Ghanaians have to relax; we’ll get to the semi-finals,” he had said.

He subsequently published a number of video recordings on Youtube in which he was heard prophesying the outcomes of the USA-Ghana and the Ghana-Germany matches ahead of those encounters.
