Since last week I have intoxicated myself with some local wine trying to decipher the banter between the Apostle General and the only Bishop of the Republic of Kenyasi.
Why should two “ministers of God” be interested in whpat the other does. Maybe, just maybe, one might be prevailing against the church which Jesus has built with his precious blood. But who commissioned or ordained you as a judge/watchman over the other?
It all started when the General Overseer of the International Godsway Ministries, Bishop Daniel Obinim revealed his spiritual ability in turning into an animal in the spirit realm.
He said this on his OBTV adding that he can transform into a snake or dog and enter any room to punish those who speak ill of him. According to him, on a certain fateful day he transform into a tiger whilst his “father Jesus” also transform into a lion.
A week after, the controversial bishop again said he had the ability of changing and enlarging body spare parts. He went further saying “if you do not like the looks of any part of the body, come to me, what do you want that I can’t offer…if you want big buttocks I can do it for you, if you want big breasts, I can help…if you have a small manhood, I can change them all when I come to the spiritual realm…,”.
His comments didn’t go down well with some Christians. The Apostle General of the Royal House Chapel (Rev Sam Kroankye Ankrah) also added his voice on Starr Chat with Bola Ray describing Obinim’s actions as ‘magic’ and ‘unchristian’.
He expressed his surprise why Obinim is not brought to book describing his church members as ‘bunch of ignorant people’. In a haste response, Obinim took the Apostle General to the cleaners saying he “never knew he was such a fool”.
But one would ask, what has someone’s claim of turning into whatever got to do with another minister of God’s Church? Obinim’s raw insult on Sam Kroankye is nebulous and needless but can you blame him knowing he can descend into the gutters with uncouth words?
Well, the good Rev brought this unto himself and hopefully he has learnt his lessons. What gift gives one the mandate to proclaim someone’s act as unbiblical or a magic? Or perhaps Rev Ankrah is also lasing his booths to join Obinim in the gutters? Then he has a long way to go.
He needs basic tutorials and intensive orientation from Afia Swazineger as to the tactics and strategies to ‘de-obinim’ all the insult rained at his person. But can he stand the test of time? I doubt. Currently, the Apostle general is losing the battle. He needs to apt his game because the ‘angel’ of IGC has sharpened his teeth waiting for the next episode from the General’s camp.
We should be cautious of who we take our fights to as one cannot tell the arsenals of his/her opponent. An eagle must always fly and play with eagles not vultures. As my good friend Mohammed Gbanja always put it “monkeys play by size”. You should know your Bukom Banku before daring to beat him as the twice defeated Ayittey Powers did. If you can’t continue a particular fight, don’t start.
