Vaccination urgently required!!
….To immunize against the virulent Kenyan Election Fever! >> K-OVID / K-ORONA – 2022 (K-22)
… more contagious than the COVID -19 / 20 / 21 / with 22 now loading but seemingly dying out!!
… and looking to exhibit stronger symptoms than the previous K- 2017 variant
…. and mutating very fast…
… with the K-22 mutation currently exhibiting certain strong variants,
… most prevalent being Azimio and Kenya Kwanza (Also known as the 2 horses)
… that is fast sweeping (galloping) across the country
… and easily swallowing or de-stabilizing (trampling) the other ‘weaker’ K-22 variants, the likes of OKA
Welcome to today’s sharing
… and be blessed.
The Kenyan Flu – Election Pandemic
…seems to mutate every 5 years
… seemingly more infectious and stronger with each election cycle
… even rendering various prescribed vaccinations null and void
.. whether from government bodies like EACC, IEBC…
… or even the Church and other religious organisations.
So serious and virulent is the Kenyan Election Flu
… that it seems to affect the minds and hearts of almost everyone in the country
… even blurring the lines between Christians and non Christians
… with one not being able to tell the difference between the two!
… as everyone seems to be dancing to the same tune!
Dancing with the devil: Political-Charismatic Witchcraft??
It is the season of politics
…though seemingly premature,
..but we are on full swing campaigns – taking it as a matter of life and death??
All sorts of people get captured with our politics…
… Is it just an addiction or is it more of political-charismatic witchcraft?
… that even seemingly sane, educated, ‘religious’ individuals are turned inside out
…willing to let go of reason, decorum, the Word of God…
… all for the sake of pandering and dancing to the tune of their political idol
A ‘Christian’ willing to put aside Jesus for this season…
… and ‘dance’ with the devil
.. probably remembering Jesus sometime later after the polls
Kenyan politics is … one area most Christians are not willing to listen to or follow God??
_*If only Kenya could have just as much zeal for Jesus as they do their political idols…!!??*_
One perspective of looking at politics, particularly in Kenya
*It is a test of the heart* …who or at what level ( maturity) have I attained in Christ
It looks into the hidden part of the heart that we manage to hide from others and ourselves
…until a certain test ( stressor) appears to bring it out into the open
Jeremiah 17:9-10 (NKJV)
“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?
I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.
Luke 6:44- 45 (NKJV)
For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush.
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
Matthew 12:33-35 (NKJV)
“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit.
Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.
Proverbs 4:23 (NKJV)
Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.
Political Flu Symptoms – Kenyan Variant
A few political ‘flu’ symptoms that we as Kenyans seem to easily succumb or fall prey to…
– Having politics as our most important interaction, above other relationships of both God and man!
– Creation & following of political idols…that I can even die for!
– Mocking or disrespecting of God’s Name, His servants or disregarding His laws
– Dishonoring the House of God, the Sabbath and even using it to abuse and castigate others (opponents to me or my political idol)
– Not honoring, looking down on, castigating, indeed showing outward disrespect for authority figures in our society – whether our parents, political or religious leaders
…easily forgetting or ignoring
1Timothy 2:1-4 (NKJV)
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,
for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
…yes even that seemingly corrupt or evil politician!!??
involved in all manner of things like …Murder, Adultery, Stealing, Lying, Coveting
… as politicians are just a reflection of who we really are as a society!!??
We are behaving like Moses?!?
… at least the one time when he ‘broke’ all the 10 commandments
_*We literally break all ten of the commandment during the political season!!*_
…. not adding to the fact that we deeply immerse ourselves into things that are a complete ABOMINATION to the Lord!!
So help us God!!
Political Flu Symptoms that are an ABOMINATION in the sight of the Lord
There are 6 things the Lord hates, indeed 7 that are an abomination to Him
…according to Proverbs 6:16-19
How easily we defile ourselves & the land with abominations in the eyes of the Lord…
… and we are non the wiser!!
…pride and haughtiness during this season
… where outright lies come out of our mouths as easily as we are breathing
… and we do not flinch when we bear false witness against our opponents
… Indeed our hearts seems immersed in such wickedness that we seem eager to do evil at all times…
…whether it is just simply causing trouble and division among people
… or even contemplating and executing murder, whether physical or through false witness of character assassination
and all in the name of politics!!
… a sacrifice to the gods of politics??
God Have Mercy on us!!
Getting comfortable with abominations…
Means that one is reflecting the image and likeness of its father (source)
… inviting untold curses upon ourselves and defiling the land
The father the devil is a father of lies…who comes only to steal, kill and destroy!
John 8:44 (NKJV)
You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
Unfortunately for Kenya..
…. the so called “covenant with the devil’ seems to be earnestly renewed every 5 years
While we as Christians – a people supposedly called by the name of the Lord
… are not humbling ourselves and praying
… neither seeking the Face of God nor turning from our wicked ways
… so that the Word of the Lord in 2 Chronicles 7:14 can come into effect
… where God promises to
…hear from heaven, forgive our sin and heal our land!!
I do need a vaccination!!
…indeed the vaccination of *LOVE*
… a love for God that is demonstrated by my love for my fellow brothers and sisters
.. to immunize me against the ‘peculiar’ Kenyan election fever
John 13:34-35 (NKJV)
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
1 John 3:14 (NKJV)
We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,
that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so?
Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
1 John 4:19-21 (NIV)
We love because he first loved us.
Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.
And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
May the Lord God Almighty indeed give us the vaccination of LOVE …
… to take us through the election season and beyond
So that indeed others may taste and see the fruit of love in our lives…
… and indeed acknowledge that the Lord is good!!
