Dr. David Owuor and the East African quakes
It is my suggestion that sentiments to the effect that there could be a spiritual angle to these things that has not been captured by the local media (for reasons best known to them) be thoroughly investigated.
A few months ago (June, I think), some local and international Christians spoke in sentiments captured by sections of the media to warn that God was / is angry with us over the increase of sin within and outside His Body in this country (sexual immorality / lusts of the flesh, unfaithffulnness in interpersonal relationships, financial corruption, pride of the eyes, pride of life, including reports that some known believers / clergymen had resorted to seeking and using powers of darkness with which to serve God in preaching of the word, healing the sick, etc..etc).
The message was that we repent or perish, – perishing could come in several ways, including earthquakes (Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu were listed as places of extreme concern to the Lord).
Expectedly, the responses were varied.
The Head of State, reportedly informed of the impending disasters, cared about it his own way; he sent a minister to represent Him at a national day of repentance at Nyayo Stadioum (very much unlike what one sees in Nineveh when Jonah talks about more or less the same thing).
Some leading Church leaders here were reported to have poured cold water on the same and, like sections of our otherwise robust media / other skeptics, insisted that there was no need to get hysterical about anything, after all “God loves Kenya and Kenyans.”
I know of a few congregations where believers got into individual and corporate repentance…some have persisted at it to this day…but that’s where we are.
They say there is an intense spiritual contest for the heart and soul of this country on-going at the moment, off-shots of which are reportedly being expressed in debates about some of our national issues.
Certainly, it would be fool-hardy generally to want to characterize the East African quakes in light of what is happening elsewhere in the world but I think it would be useful for one of the persons who was reported to have predicted such here to come out and explain the latest phenomenon.
