Out of Africa! An article on Bernard Blessing by Adrian van Leen

By stephen - Posted on 01 December 2009

Adrian van Leen is a highly respected Australian researcher as regards to New Religious Movements and individuals. His research has been ongoing over many years and he has been invited by the Australian media to give his considered views at various times.

In the 2009 May/June  copy of 'Take a Closer Look' magazine (which he publishes) he raised some very serious concerns about Bernard Blessing, also known as Dr. Blessing, Ankomah Bernard Percy and Rev Blessing.

These issues raised by Adrian need to be clarified by Bernard Blessing as he has 'ministered' in Australia to various congregations. For example, he has been a speaker at Northside Christian Church in Melbourne. According to their website Bernard "... speaks into the lives of presidents, prime ministers and other leaders throughout the world on a daily basis."

This record above seems to suggest that Ankomah Bernard Percy's mother was a typist.

(Above photo) Seems to point to Ankomah Bernard Percy attending Swedru Secondary School where he was a chapel prefect.


(The original article was published in TAKE A CLOSER LOOK, Vol.30, No.3; May-July 2009).


Bernard Blessing Ankomah, as he now calls himself has been going around the globe [ ] people out of money and property.  He is nothing he says he is.  He tells a fantastic story about how all his relatives died when he was still young etc.  His mother and auntie and uncles are all alive and living in Ghana.

He has added the title of Doctor to his name but this guy has never set foot in any college on the planet.  If you like to be [ ] invite him to your church.
