2021: Clergy prophesies scarcity of basic food products, high rainfall
By Joseph Kingston, Calabar
The national publicity secretary of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, and the presiding Bishop of the Calabar-based Christian Central Chapel, Bishop Emmah Isong, has advised Nigerians to stock foodstuff, especially the popular cassava flour, called ‘garri’ in local parlance, due to shortages of some foodstuff, which he said would be experienced in the country.
Bishop Isong, who prophesied the coronavirus pandemic in the early hours of January 1, 2020, spoke while reeling out another set of prophecies for 2021. He said there would be heavy rainfall in 2021 which would lead to building collapse and therefore advised property owners and real estate moguls to take time to lay foundations well.
“Buy garri and keep. These prophecies look funny, when it comes to pass you will see. Buy garri and keep! Though agriculture shall be boosted, there will be scarcity of some basic products. And this will include garri, but after which the federal government will intervene and farmers will rejoice.
“There will be heavy rainfall within the middle of the year leading to several building collapse. For some of you who want to lay the foundation of your building, make it solid, so that the biblical wind and rain does not pull down your house,” he stated.
He warned rapists to turn over a new leaf as the year would be hot for the recakcitrants, noting “Bad news for rapists. They will be publicly condemned and disgraced, even by international media. Many voices across the world will speak against rape.
“There will continue to be an increase in financial fraud. Be careful of financial transactions before you hit it. Please confirm and be double sure before any financial transaction. The hearts of men are becoming desperately wicked and the love of money has led many to evil.”
Although the year would witness a tough economy, the man of God said the people who trust in the Lord “shall rise in obscurity according to Isaiah 58:10. This means that there will be surprising liftings and miraculous promotions and elevations to enviable positions that will be humanly impossible, only by grace. So, it is a year of grace,” and advised Nigerians not to be afraid of the year.
“Don’t be afraid for the God who protected you in 2020 shall keep you in 2021. Only avoid bitterness and unforgiveness,” he stated.
