Actor-turned-pastor, Timothy Bentum

Founder of Timothy Bentum Ministries, Timothy Bentum has lauded the Inspector General of Police (IGP) for his warning to Ghanaian prophets prior to the December 31st watchnight service across the country.

However, the actor says prophets should prioritize God’s voice over that of the IGP.

Mr. Bentum made this admonition on Up-Close, a new personality-focused segment of Joy FM‘s ‘The Reason is Jesus‘, while sharing his opinion on the IGP’s warning about prophecies.

Even though he believes Dr. Akuffo Dampare’s words have brought some sanity into the prophetic space, he also believes that if God asks his prophet(s) to prophesy in a certain way at a certain time, they have no option than to obey God’s command instead.

The actor turned preacher mentioned that prophets should be bold enough to pass on God’s revelations, regardless of its consequences.

“You might say it and not get protected by God…He might leave you to go to jail, because may be He wants you to go preach in jail”, he elaborated.

According to Timothy Bentum, there is no law that forbids prophecies in church.

“If God says it, you should say it…I think the IGP is just using another law to try and stifle this”.

The actor believes the intention of the Police head was an attempt to encourage prophets to refrain from causing fear and panic. However, prophets must stand by the voice of God rather than that of men.

Thus, he is heard in the interview saying, “if God says it, whom am I?”.
