The leader of Machaira Community Church (MCC) Prophet Peter Anamoh may now have the opportunity to redeem his sunken image, as he was never taken serious when he predicted in November, 2011 that the late Prof. John Atta Mills will not finish his term as president of Ghana.
The controversial Man of God lost his credibility after his failed doomsday prophecy that, 11pm on Friday, November 11, 2011, would be the beginning of the end of the world from the seas of Ghana.
In the aftermath of that failed prophecy, Prophet Anamoh then said Prof. Mills will not complete his four year mandate as President of Ghana, but he did not explain further.
Indeed Prof. Mills died on 24th July 2012, six months short of his four year term which would have expired on the night of January 6th 2013. He is yet to make any public statement on the death of the former president whose remains were laid to rest last Friday at the Asomdwee Park at the Castle, Osu.
Find below a reproduction of the story originally published on www.myjoyonline.com in which the Prophet was reported to have made the revelation.
The woes of the doomsday prophet, Brother Peter Anamoh are far from over as a pastor from Logos Rhema Community Chapel, where he claimed to have once served as a minister, have revealed that he dropped out of the church’s Bible school after two weeks and was never a minister in the church.
Anamoh claimed in his book “Unveiling twelve years of prophetic works” that he served under Pastor Abu Baako of Logos Rhema Community Chapel for three years, but a pastor of the church told Adom News that claim is untrue.
Pastor Edward Nyarko from Logo Rhema told Adom News that Anamoh was nothing more than a student of church’s Bible school, Logos Rhema School of the Word, where he dropped out from a six-week course after only two weeks and started his own Bible school using the manual he was given to study at the school.
“While in the Bible School, Anamoh was occasionally sent on a prayer mission together with other students to go pray for other nations, just like all other students who were not ministers of the church were sometimes sent on such prayer missions.
“Anamoh used to visit our church services but he was never a minister of the church as he claimed,” Pastor Nyarko, who also works with GTV said.
Another source from the church revealed that Anamoh used to write down every prophetic utterance Pastor Abu Baako made and went into meetings outside the church and repeated them and claimed they were his own.
It was however not clear which prophecies he usurped from Pastor Baako, and which ones were actually his, but Brother Anamoh credits himself with prophecies about Obama’s Presidency, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s Presidency of Liberia, the Ivorian crisis, and others which he has catalogued in his book.
The most recent doomsday prophecy that 11pm on Friday, November 11, 2011 would be the beginning of the end of the world from the seas of Ghana, never came to pass.
Prophet Anamoh initially claimed he was certain about the date and time of the doomsday and that even on the night before, on Thursday, November 10, 2011, there was going to be a sign of the doomsday event, but none of that happened.
Meanwhile, earlier in the day on 11/11/11, he started shifting the goal post by claiming if it did not happen Ghanaians should question God and not him, and later on he said if it did not happen he would be glad because he had earlier on negotiated with God to stop it but God refused.
His brother, Pastor Victor Anamoh, who sounded less confident on radio, also said even if it did not happen on 11/11/11, it could happen during the week, another clear sign of uncertainty, which exposed their wrong interpretation of the scripture.
But what took the country by storm was that Anamoh succeeded in deceiving his congregation at Machaira Community Church and a number of superstitious-minded Ghanaians to follow him from all parts of the country to his hometown Zuarungu in the Upper East Region, where he claimed there would be safety for the righteous.
He had claimed that he went to Zuarungu for a crusade, to tell his countrymen and women about the doomsday, but his church members revealed that he told them the disaster would start from the sea and the sea water will flood the coastal cities at 50 meters high, and travel 400 miles inland and stop at Kintampo in the Brong Ahafo region (which he claimed is the centre of the world) but would not reach the north where they were.
Anamoh, who describes himself on his website as “THE MOST ANOINTED PROPHET IN GHANA” is on record to have quoted the book of Numbers to say on Metro TV Good Evening Ghana that the only proof of a true prophet is that his words come to pass, and that the day a prophet’s words fails he loses his credibility.
But since the woeful failure of his doomsday prophecy, Anamoh has been insisting he is still a credible prophet and that God is the one to answer for the failure of the false prophecy he threw at Ghanaians.
He still claims he heard from God and that God might have changed his mind, but he is not telling the public what made God change his mind.
When Adom News called him on Monday, November 14, 2011, three clear days after the failure of his doomsday prophecy, he said he was now going to ask God why the prophecy failed and bring answers to Ghanaians on Friday, November 18, 2011.
Meanwhile, his brother said the disaster could happen later in the week, while another church member called Michael Ackom said the disaster happened in the spirit but yet to manifest in the physical.
But this is not the first time Anamoh has been accused of foul play with regards to his doomsday prophecy; an Accra-based newspaper reported he was extorting up to GHC500 from people as heaven’s gate fee to avoid the doomsday destruction, but he denied the allegation, and has even posted the story on his website.
His website also revealed that a number of disasters that occurred this year, made him believe his doomsday prophecy was right.
Anamoh has excepts of videos of the most recent Accra floods, an Earthquake in Eastern Turkey, and another in India; floods in Southern Pakistan, and a narration of a dream by a taxi driver and self-styled Evangelist called Justice from Covenant Bible Church in Ghana, as proof of authenticity of his obviously false doomsday prophecy.
He has also written in his book “Lessons from John the Baptist” that it is not true that no one knows the day when the world will end because the Holy Bible said it will happen at midnight, and again the Bible said God will do nothing without revealing it to his servants the prophets.
The questions the public have been asking is whether Anamoh, the self-styled most anointed prophet in Ghana, is truly one of those prophets; and by what criteria he does measure ‘most anointed’ and ‘least anointed’; and who were his competitors in the race for ‘the most anointed prophet’.
Again, whether he really heard from God; and whether the things God plans to reveal to his prophets actually include the exact date and time the world will come to an end like Anamoh sought to make the whole world believe – contrary to what Jesus himself said in Matthew 24:36?
Meanwhile, while Ghanaians are still grappling with his failed doomsday prophecy, Anamoh has given another prophecy that President John Evans Ata Mills will not complete his term in office, but he did not explain further.
