Reverend Tony Kiamah this Sunday decided to give a sermon that scared the ‘whatever’ out of many peeps. Ok let me talk for my self… the reality was it was scary.
At this time, his very juncture, this special moment, we are all praying for peace, we have all remembered that we did not build this nation out of our own wit but out of the will of God. We have realized that God exists and knows what happened, what is happening and what is to happen.
Case Study… What do you tell a young man who witnessed his father, mother, brother and sisters… and probably cousins get massacred, chopped up right before his eyes, his house get torched, his fathers farm burnt to the ground?
What do you tell a lady who has just cleared fourth form, looking forwards to college but instead is gang raped, together with her mother and younger sisters?
What do you tell these two citizens, now living in a stadium with not belongs at all, in the rain. Do you tell that God is faithful and just? Do you tell them that God is good and is handling their situation? Apart from trust in the Lord, do you really have the courage to say anything to these two people?
Look at the situation in Kenya, God allowed it all to happen, God knew this would happen. We need to ask ourselves, what lesson is god teaching us? What teaching is God giving us out of this? Yes, none of us expected peace loving Kenyans to go into a hate and massacre frenzy, but God allowed it to happen.
None of us wakes up in the morning saying… ‘Oh what a wonderful day, the sun is shining… I am going to die today’.
Biblically, God hardened the heart of Pharaoh, Though Moses had seen God in the burning bush and was armed with extreme confidence, still Pharaoh would not budge, Moses changed his staff into a snake to show the power of God but Pharaoh’s wizards did the same though their snakes where swallowed my Moses’. God sent the plagues to Egypt, the changing of all water and rivers into blood… don’t you think people died of thirst? the frogs, the locusts, the illnesses etc. But Pharaoh was still unchanged. This was all known to God even before He did it.
God allowed Rwanda to go into Genocide. Look at Iraq, Somalia, Sudan. Is Kenya an exception? God sent Abraham to a place where he was not willing to change his mind to save, Sodom and Gomorrah. He only saved the family who believed in him and lived in holy ways, Lot and co.
If the Lord showed you in a dream that the time had come for you to leave Kenya for the safety of another nation, what are the chances that you will heed that call? The chances are that it will be too late by the time you decide to go, there will be no transport and stuff will already be happening, bad stuff, massacre, rape, arson etc.
Look at Tuesday, its a dedicated prayer and fasting day at ICC. The usual Sunday turn out is ruffly 3000 at the main church and 800 at the frontrunnerz, but come Tuesday, the highest turn out is 400. Is that really the meaning of being real Christians who pray and are praying for our nation? Is Kenya a country with Christians or is the Christian thing jut a figure of speech? If this country goes to the Dogs, so will you and me. Friends… SO WILL YOU AND ME. Those if us who cannot afford air tickets to wherever whenever but akina Raila, Kibaki and Co. will be in luxury abroad. If what they cared for was human life, they would have made a truce the moment the first person died but people, these guyz are ONLY INTERESTED IN POWER. We need to pray for this nation.
In Egypt Pharaoh was hardened till the plague came to his doorstep. Note it is not diplomacy that let the Israelites out of Egypt but the Hand of God. The buggers after all that around 100 days later still go and build a golden calf and God is just a few meters away on Mt. Sinai, no wonder none of them saw the promised land.
Emperor Nero managed to Burn the city of Jerusalem as biblical as it was, how significant is Nairobi? What if God destroys Kenya, where will you go?
Friends, if this country went into civil war, there would be untold suffering, none of us pray for suffering ama? Have you donated towards the displaced? imagine if it was you… do you think anyone would be interested in donating to you? We don’t care about the displaced people because we don’t really give consideration to the displaced, we think of them in the form of unga.
Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV)
Speak to God, Skip a meal or two or three, Fast for this great nation and pray. Look at it this way… if you pack to go now people will say you are insane and you don’t know what you are doing.So you need to pray for courage and guts. Again when it is evident that you need to flea, its usually too late. Repent and pray to God to spare your life if he destroys Kenya.
Let us pray that it is his will that he spares us. Prayer without ceasing. We need to make Kenya a country for practicing Christians. We need to all call out to Christ. God can and will restore each believing individual. Get saved today and join a bible believing church.
God Bless you all and God bless Kenya.
