Christians in Kenya as a whole have had to do alot of introspection and reflection at this painful moment for the nation.
I have been a Christian all my life and have been to alot of churches. I have seen it all. I have met Prophet Owuor at a kesha selling books before he became the mightiest prophet of God, I attended one of his affiliate churches for quite some time. Since I don’t like to criticise misguided Christians unless it’s Zakayo, I won’t go into the gory details.
With one Mr. Makenzie I can authoritatively tell you that Satan isn’t playing for champ change. He is going the full hog. The mission is Steal, Kill and Destroy. Meaning that whenever you see signs of evil in your life, it will get bigger and bigger and eventually aim to obliterate you completely. As such, we can not follow anyone especially pastors blindly.
It’s a great comfort to feel that you have a shoulder to lean on in a committed man or woman of God. Nobody knows it better than Satan. You need it badly. Of course he will use what you want as bait to trap you. You love Jesus, Satan will make you feel like you need to keep doing more for Jesus. If you love me, you will sacrifice everything for me.
When you go tell your problem to a ‘pastor’ you don’t know very well or you have never asked God about, you give the charlatans leverage. People who want something from you use whatever leverage they have to get what they want from you. For example your fundi knows something that you don’t and he will use that to con you. Same as the pastor who knows more or so he claims than you about God.
Here is the thing, if you have any doubts about anyone right now, it’s imperative to listen to your inner voice before it get numbed out by your rationalizations. The reason is that the world we live in today doesn’t give much margin for errors. You err, you will pay dearly. You trust the wrong person and you can lose everything including your life. This does not only apply for pastors only. Jowie killed Monica because she trusted him. Trust the wrong man or woman. Business partner or doctor and your life may end up on the chopping board. Satan is like a lion which is seeking whom to devour. If you are in doubt about any association or relationship you are in, now is the time to leave because tomorrow may be too late. Kill. Steal. Destroy.
There’s a popular Christian saying that goes, God has brought us far. Satan also brings people from very far. See how early hints started being dropped. God have mercy on your people.
