THE CONGREGATION of the Bethany Methodist Church at Essikado in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis of the Western Region were bemused last Tuesday afternoon.
This was after the head pastor, Evangelist Emmanuel Hagan, had revealed to a 56-year-old member of the church that a scorpion tattoo drawn on his left hand had been sucking his blood every night for the past 30 years.
The revelation was made after the man, Papa Nketsia also called Alago, had complained that his skin had been itching for the past 30 years.
Evangelist Emmanuel Hagan said he saw in a vision that the tattooed scorpion was the cause of the irritation on the man’s skin.
He then advised Ghanaians, especially the youth, not to be swayed by modern trends to practise or adopt everything they see.
It would be recalled that in October last year a promise ring allegedly turned into a snake at the same Essikado Bethany Methodist Church during a prayer session.
In that story Evangelist Emmanuel Hagan explained that a female member of the church called him from Tema to inform him about a ring her husband gave her, which the woman said had been turning into a snake and vomiting money.
According to the woman, her husband used their 18-year-old boy for ritual money and that the husband died because she (wife) found out about the rituals.
The pastor said the woman saw a ring in their matrimonial room and asked the husband about it and he asked her to take it on condition that she would not wear it (ring) when bathing, but out of curiosity, she wore it to bath.
The pastor indicated that when the woman removed the ring, it turned into snake and began to vomit GH¢5 notes so she got scared and went to call the husband to witness what was happening.
The husband, according to the evangelist, told his wife that he was aware of what was happening and pleaded with her not to tell anyone about it.
Evangelist Hagan explained that anytime the snake vomited money it demanded for the blood of a cow.
He asserted that the woman brought the ring to the church for him to see.
He said, ‘As I was praying, God revealed to me that the ring the woman brought to the church was turning into a snake so I asked her to go for the bag in which the reptile is kept.
‘When she brought it the snake was vomiting GH¢5 notes. For a moment I got scared because snake is a dangerous reptile, but I kept praying because I saw that the snake was their 18-year-old son.’
Evangelist Hagan added that the woman admitted that the boy was her son and that he suffered from convulsion.
‘So I pleaded with God to take the spirit from him before they kill the snake else the boy would die, he maintained, adding that after the prayers the woman decided to give the money to the church. ‘But we told her to keep it,’ according to the head of the church.
‘When the woman returned home, the son was healed but unfortunately, the husband died later,’ he asserted.
