I CANNOT JUST KEEP QUIET: A KU VUMI
I CANNOT JUST KEEP QUIET: A KU VUMI
I tried but i just can’t. I know what is politically correct is to say; ‘we are behind you president in your decision to suspend church services in order to save lives’. I will be praised by people for saying that but my concern is, “will God be pleased with me”? Since when does lack of faith in Him please Him? When did He start getting impressed by those who praise those who undermine Him? Or maybe I better keep quiet and hope somebody will tackle the matter, but what if no one does? Will I like it when Jesus does not acknowledge me before the Father because I could not acknowledge Him before people? Is He only my Lord when things are smooth and when the going gets tough, I then hide and deny Him like Peter on the night of the Lord’s betrayal?
Before I share the praises of our President and government for the wonderful work they are doing of saving lives, somebody explain to me the reasons behind the suspension of church services by our President, Cyril Ramaphosa. Why are the advisors of the president lying to him about the super spreaders of coronavirus? As a result of these lies, many people are dying spiritually because of church closures. When a person loses hope, with no word of encouragement, they eventually see no reason to fight for survival. Many people are killed by fear and lack of faith. Most death are said to be COVID-19 related whereas they are a result of depression and anxiety. People are collapsing and dying nowadays and it is really worrying.
We are in the middle of a pandemic and coronavirus is real. What we do not need are lies and emotional blackmails. It is shocking to hear the so called scientists of South Africa lying and saying churches are spreading the virus whereas there is no evidence to support that. They tried to interview health workers who confirmed that cases are mostly resulting from parties where alcohol is served and from funerals. God has protected the church thus far. From June 1st, since churches opened, we are not hearing of any incidences of infections that are happening through church gatherings. Churches of God are observing all protocols and are therefore safe. The religious leaders who are advisors to our government continue to betray Jesus Christ in order to appear to be politically correct. What is the use of being liked by everyone and then lose the favour of God? If they have forgotten what the Bible they read says, friendship with the world is still enmity with God.
When a government starts taking decisions that violates the constitutional rights of its citizens, with no justification like now, that government is no longer democratic. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON WHY CHURCHES SHOULD BE PUT IN THE SAME BASKET AS ALCOHOL. You open casinos, cinemas , conference centres, restaurants and operate taxis, planes and buses at full capacity because you want to save the economy? How will you save the economy when you have excluded the owner of all silver and gold from it all? You want to save lives but you refuse people from connecting with the Giver and the Sustainer of life? These attempts to undermine the power of Christ cannot be supported by the church of Christ, not even for a day, let alone two weeks. When it comes to our God, I cannot allow anyone to undermine Him for 14 seconds. Others are saying 14 days are just few days. They are way too many, even one day of suspending church services is not Ok. Remember that this is how it started in March. I wouldn’t be surprised if alcohol sales gets unbanned and churches continue to operate under strict restrictions. No one is supposed to compete with God for authority. When God says this is how I want to be worshipped, then a leader says you have to obey me rather than obey your God. No one can compete with the Lord and win. This is the time where many churches come together for fasting prayers, but this year they are stopped from doing that. This is the time where many people make resolutions to change their lives and go to church, they are now stopped using COVID-19 statistics as an excuse. Let us go to our churches and call upon our God to take away this pandemic. This kind can only go away through prayer and fasting. You can’t say you are saving people’s lives by closing churches. The very same church goers are now at the malls, they are travelling in full taxis and full busses. Is coronavirus only waiting for them at their churches? This kind of senseless oppression leads people to revolt. Servants of God who are praying for people know for sure that through prayers, which are now mostly done over the phones, many are getting healed of coronavirus.
We shall continue to pray for all who are affected by this virus and the Lord shall heal them as He is doing now. To all those who lost their loved ones, our prayers are with you. May the Lord protect the people of the Republic of South Africa
