The Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has put his reputation as a Prophet on the line. The Priest, with thousands of followers, says he would quit as Prophet if a prophecy he has just made against October 1, 2019, does not come to pass.
Addressing his congregation in Enugu, according to reports, Mbaka prophesied that Nigeria would be enveloped by darkness for five hours, on Tuesday, October I, beginning from 12 noon. Thereafter, a very heavy rain and thunder would follow.
“On the 1st of October, there will be darkness in the cloud over Nigeria for a complete five hours starting from 12 noon till 5 pm. Then after it, will follow a massive rain with thunder. If this sign did not occur on the 1st of October, then I will resign as a Prophet”, he was quoted to have said.
It is not known why Mbaka made the prophecy or threat, but many are attributing it to the pronouncements by another Priest, Rev. Fr. Ebube Muonso who, allegedly, dismissed Mbaka as a fake Prophet.
Muonso is the founder of the Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry, Anambra.
In response, Mbaka was quoted to have said” I don’t have much words to say over what Ebube Muonso said about me. I am a prophet of God. Everyone knows that when I prophesy, it comes to pass. For someone to come from nowhere and question my authenticity, that person is on the brink of extinction.”
Not a few people are of the view, however, that Mbaka’s prophesy should not be taken on face value since he spoke as a Prophet.
Both Mbaka and Muonso are of the Roman Catholic Church.
