1,366; 45,000+

  • 1,366 – Number of visitors on July 18, 2007. Most of my visitors this year have been coming for stuff on faith matters. The Kenyan quakes affair has been of particular interest since February this year. Dr. David Owuor, Hon. Raila Odinga and Dr. PLO Lumumba are the most searched-after subjects here.

THE LORD IS WARNING KENYA TO REPENT, MAJOR EARTHQUAKE WILL FOLLOW

By Theodore Aluoch

IWILL NOT BE MOCKED BY YOU SAYS THE LORD!
I am not only a God of mercy, but a God of
righteousness and judgment. It has been written:
“…when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants
of the world will learn righteousness”. Isaiah 26:9 I
will not always mete out My mercy to a wicked and evil
generation. I am weary of the prayers of My people,
who would take Me for granted, and think that I am a
God who is nothing more than a “sugar daddy”.

There is none Almighty, but Me. I am a holy God. I
am your holy Father, and yet, you familiarize
yourselves with Me and call Me, “Daddy”…even “Daddy
God”. You have unwisely taken Me and My love for
granted. Yes, I am a God of love, but I am also
Sovereign and deserving of your respect and honor.

Repent and seek Me as you never have before, for My
judgments are in the earth, and who knows what may
befall those who have taken Me and My commandments so
lightly. Again, I say repent! That does not mean
simply asking My Son to come into your heart. It
means a turning away from those things that are
offensive to My ears and My eyes and following Me in
obedience.

Yet, you have used terms that degrade My Son, Jesus,
and used the term, “God”, without honor or respect. I
am hurt. I will not hold My anger forever. Consider
your ways. “For as the heavens are higher than the
earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my
thoughts than your thoughts”. Isaiah 55:9

You think I am such a man as you. Well, think
again! I will not be mocked. Nor, will I accept your
offerings of praise from an impure heart, which
selfishly seeks your own way and are not willing to
accept My Sovereignty, as Almighty God.
iwill judge this nation IWILL SHAKE THIS NATION
IHAVE WARNE YOU BEFORE BUT YOU DID NOT LISTEN MY
PROPHETS WARNED YOU THAT IWILL SHAKE THIS NATION WITH
AN EARTHQUAKE YOU DID NOT LISTED YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE
WARNED FOR IWILL SUPRISE YOU AND SHAKE THE GROUND

WAYS HOW DID YOU MAKE APACT WITH THE DEVIL TO GIVE YOU

IWILL NOT SHAKE YOU CITY AM ABOUT TO BRING DOWN YOUR
ECONOMIC GROWTH TO NOTHING IWILL LAY DOWN YOUR
BUILDINGS YOU CONSULT WITCHES AND MOCK MY PROPHETS ,
MY SERVANTS HAVE ANOINTED DEMONS, SOME OF THE MEMBERS
OF PARLIAMENT HAVE BEEN ANOINTED BY PREACHERS YET THEY
ABUSE MY NAME ON TV, YET THEY MOCK MY NAME ON TV,
THESE ARE NOT MY SERVANTS WHO TOLD THEM TO ANOINT THE
MPS, WITH OIL, THESE MPS WHO DO NOT WALK IN MY WAYS,

Second Chance

In my free time, I churn out some stories for some media outlets.

I have been into short fiction lately, in addition to the usual stock-in-trade of op-eds.

Click here to read one of my latest, characterized by the webzine in question as  “a scandalously humorous fiction with a moral.”

Enjoy!

Electric shock for African Christianity

*This article first appeard in the Nairobi Star on July 14th, 2007.

By JESSE MASAI

An interesting story came off the wires in Kampala the other day.

Kojo Nana Obiri-Yeboah, a Ghanaian preacher, had been nabbed for the most unseemly crime a man of the cloth could have been known for.

The good old Beeb told us that “he tried to import an electric shock machine to make people believe he could pass on the Holy Spirit.”

Ever faithful Reuters quoted an online magic shop selling the device as saying:  “With a simple touch, make a fluorescent bulb glow on and off at your command, make confetti move, charge a spoon and watch as it shocks a volunteer!”

Reports indicate Ugandan security services are looking into the matter, with a long-term view of regulating religion in the Pearl of Africa. 

Similar talk is rife in neighboring Kenya where concerns over charismatic Christianity more than bothers some religious and political leaders.

It gets even funnier in the reportedly 85% Christian East African nation – Mary Akatsa, a self-proclaimed prophetess from Nairobi’s environs, reportedly once claimed she had talked to God and now had Christ enclosed in some cupboard at her abode in Kawangware, a rather shanty side of the capitol. 

A BBC report three months ago indicated that there has been a massive influx of Nigerian, Pentecostal preachers into neighboring Cameroon.

“Some of these churches attract so many people because they promise some many things,” a one-time adherent was quoted as saying.

“One is healing. Another is providing riches to so many people – especially in Cameroon, where very many people live in poverty and are affected by disease – when they hear such messages, they decide to go there.

“But when they reach those places and don’t find a solution to those problems, they leave.”

A scholar of religion was quoted as saying:  “There are also limited leadership opportunities in Nigeria now, so many Nigerians see neighbouring countries as a possible place to start churches – and thereby make an income as well.”

Everywhere in Africa you turn today, you are bound to encounter the most interesting understandings and celebrations of the Christian faith, much of which borders on the heretical. 

Everywhere you turn you will find an African praising and worshipping hard, punctuating the next sentence with “praise the Lord” and a fairly long testimony. 

Their dances to celebrate God’s goodness can only be rivaled by its opposite in African dancehalls, – the romancing gyrating of hips that has every well-moneyed Westerner gracing African tourist resorts like nowhere else. 

Undress such “active” Christians and you will more than likely find a charm or amulet someplace, guarding against some calamity or warding off some demons.

The same fellow will seek wisdom in African metaphysics – an euphemism for witchcraft – in the very likely event that he or she gets into some trouble.

What are God’s people in Africa to do when they suffer, as they quite honestly do? 

How best to find one’s way through this maze in a century that has largely been christened as “the African century?”

How best to experience genuine spiritual renewal, revival and growth to authenticate the thesis that Christianity is truly moving into the Global South, the supposed fulcrum of the faith this century?

How best to dispel the thinking that African Christianity is miles wide but only inches deep?

They say theology develops in context – sourced out of Church traditions, personal reflections and, importantly, the canonical Scriptures.

It would seem inappropriate that, these many years after the indigenization of the Church in Africa, we still have to seek to develop reflections and theologies around some of these issues. 

Yet nothing, perhaps apart from teaching and discipleship, could be more urgent and pressing.

And there is yet another reason we should take this challenge seriously – the crucial place of women in missions in a globalized context.

Walk into any of the congregations in question and you will find that women constitute, on average, more than half of the entire population.

The battle is even more intense outside Christianity where various competing faiths and value systems seek to win the fairer sex over; – their vulnerability or lack of it is now more than an academic item for intellectual leisure.

In the final analysis, the one question we must respond to in light of the Kampala incident is: Whither African Christianity?

Jesus, in the Gospels, confronts us with a command to do just that by going into the whole world and preach his Good News, and his is not merely another request, suggestion or recommendation: It is a command.
