The founder and the leader of Living Study Foundation Ministry (Ebenezer Chapel) located in Accra-Ghana opposite the Ghana Telecom, Darkoman Quarters, Rev. Samuel K. Wallace has cautioned church members to desist from Men of God who extort money from people as Consultation fee ,when they are desperate for spiritual attention and protection
According to Rev. Samuel K. Wallace who had an exclusive interview with, the Blogger Nana Beyin Junior .
“Indeed we cannot quantify things of spiritual realms in monetary terms because the end results of our prayers and intercessions does not depend upon us but the will of the determinant of destiny.
In 2 Kings 4v8-37 , the summery in this passage is that Prophet Elijah, prophesy to the Shunamite woman that for the hospitality she had shown to them, and even as she was childless, he then prophesied that a year by that time she would be cuddling her own child. True to the saying that prophecy was fulfilled, however, the child died and brought grief and disappointment to the woman and her household.
She rode to the prophet Elisha at mount camel and through the discourse the prophet responded by saying “this the Lord did not reveal to me”(2 Kings 4v27c)
The inference we draw from this statement is that,
except the Lord reveals to us, we know nothing and we can do nothing.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ saids in Matthew 10v1-10 When He had called the twelve disciples He specifically instructed them to the house of Israel and preached about the Kingdom of heaven. In prove of the call, they were to heal the sick, cleans lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils, and added a caveat, “freely ye have recrived, freely give
The exhortation of Christ is He had called us and sent us to minister His grace to all irrespective and we are not to exact anything including money, as He has freely given us the power to do His work.
The true men of God – pastors, prophets, teachers do
not take money before they are seen.
