A Letter to the Kenyans

“Concord of Peace”

By Bishop Dr. Douglas P. Muchiri

July 2009

 More than any other time in history, Kenya desperately needs unfeigned Peace.  The absence of peace means Kenya will degrade and subsequently degenerate into a chaotic mess.  I say anarchy since many of our leaders are in a quandary, not knowing peace nor the modus operandi to bequeath peace to Kenyans.  The situation is awkwardly catastrophic necessitating a “Concord of Peace” to happen immediately!  I propose the Concord of Peace should happen every last Friday of the month of November, that is the 27th of November 2009.  A day set aside yearly for Prayers, Forgiveness, and Thanksgiving for all Kenyans.  The day hallowed as the day of “Concord of Peace” or “Ijumaa ya Salaam.”

The “Concord of Peace” is legitimated by at least two divine ‘Covenant Pledges’: The first is the Promise of God to King Solomon in the Old Covenant: if my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).  And the Second is the command from the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ found in the New Covenant:  Forgive us our sins, just as we forgive those who sin against us.  And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil … For if you forgive men their sins, your heavenly father will also forgive you: but if you forgive not men their sins, neither will your heavenly father forgive your sins” (Matthew 6:12, 14-15).

The materialization of peace includes a Sovereign government of the people characterized by Serenity and Tranquility of mind.  Harmony and Agreement among neighbors, End of war and Freedom of strife among tribes, Reconciliation of differing people groups and dwelling together in unity, Settlement of displaced persons in all localities of Kenya, Celebration of Friendship of all persons in Kenya and Prosperity of every Kenyan person.

The appropriation of Peace is albeit expensive and calls for all of us, without exception, to be prepared to pay the full price for Peace.  In other words, true peace knows no shortcut.  As a Servant of God, this is what I humbly recommend:

1.     That one week before the “Concord of Peace,” everyone in Kenya gives themselves to Prayer and Fasting.  Remember that Nineveh was saved when the King and the nation repented by humbling themselves through Prayer and fasting and even though they were an evil nation, God still saved them.

2.    Parliament to Declare this day an “Ijumaa ya Salaam” Public Holiday to allow Wananchi to congregate in their various houses of Prayer for prayers of Peace and intercession for the Country.

3.    The climax of this a solemn gathering be at the Jamuhuri Park where Religious leaders will lead all leaders and the Nation at large in Prayers of Repentance, Forgiveness, and Thanksgiving.

4.    Important also is to invite the former President Daniel Arap Moi to confess the sins of past political regimes. 

5.    Then have both President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila, Publicly confess their sins in leading Kenya astray in the 2007 Elections and thereafter.  Moreover, no mincing of words because they both stand guilty!

6.    Also, have the Deputy Prime Minister, Uhuru Kenyatta, and Honorable William Ruto among other Political Leaders stand on behalf of the people to confess the sins of the Kenyan constituents.

7.    The Program should be led by at least 12 of our Spiritual Fathers representing all the eight provinces and the Diaspora.  Among them Apostle Dr. Joe Kayo; Bishop Dr. Arthur Kitonga; Bishop Mwatha of PEFA; Bishop Tuimising of Deliverance Church, Bishop Ndingi Mwana Nzeki, Bishop Manasseh Mankuleiyo, and Bishop Adoyo et al.

8.    The Color Green to be declared the color of the day, since Green represents Peace, Life, and Prosperity!

Friends, all of us have sinned and truly fallen short of God’s Glory.  Therefore, I pray that all of us, without exception, will prefer to earnestly pursue God’s glorious Peace via Repentance, Forgiveness and Good will instead of vengeance.  And O how much I pray for Kenya and Kenyan posterity to know and experience true peace in this age and in the age to come.

May peace be our heritage as Kenyans both now and forever,

Bishop Dr. Douglas Muchiri

A must read prophetic message
Kenya Shall Rise!
By Bishop Dr. Douglas P. Muchiri
May 2009

 

 

 

Prophecy neither contradicts nor replaces the written word of God — The Bible. Instead, prophecy sheds more insight into the already revealed written word of God (2Peter 1:20-21). This means that, we must become a people of the Word: a people who meditate and order our living in accordance to the inspired word of God. Only then shall we Know and Worship God; Know and Experience the Peace of God and overflow in the Successful Blessings of God (See Joshua 1:8ff; 1Timothy 3:16; Matthew 4:4).
More than ever, today I strongly feel to encourage all Kenyans that the word of God in Zechariah 1:18-21 is surely happening for Kenya. In this pericope, Prophet Zechariah lifted up his eyes and looked. Moreover, when he looked, he saw four horns. Therefore, he asked the angel who was speaking with him, “what are these?” and the angel answered Zechariah saying, “These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.”
In order to appreciate this prophecy in the context of Kenya, it is expedient that we first understand the prophetic significance of the names Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem. Moreover, since this is a prophetic message, we must also decipher what “horns” stands for in scripture.
A horn is a protruding hard substance growing on the head of certain animals. Such animals normally use their horns as instruments of warfare for either defense or offense. The symbolic use of horns in the bible, represent kingdoms, power, strength or influence (Daniel 8:20-22). Horns are also used as emblems of honor, power, dominion, and glory (Psalms 18:1-2).
When King Saul sinned against God, God rejected Saul and in his place God anointed David as King (1Sam 15:24-29; 16:1-13). King David was from the tribe of Judah. Later on in the Davidic covenant, God blessed David and promised him that the lineage of David shall reign forever (2Samuel 7:16). It is because of this promise that Jesus came from the genealogy of Judah. He continues to reign forever. So what does Judah mean? According to Genesis 29:35, Judah was the fourth child of Leah and his name meant “Praise.” Therefore, in the Kenyan context today, Judah may mean, “Praise,” a “Kingdom of Praise” or “a Sovereignty in which Praise to God dominates.”
According to Genesis 32:27-28 and Genesis 35:10, God changed the name of Jacob — from Jacob to Israel. The rationale for the name change was that from then on, Jacob would be a blessed person. Therefore, Israel simply means “Blessed.” Moreover, the descendants of Jacob are henceforth the blessed ones and hence their name Israelites. In the Kenyan perspective, “Israel” may therefore be used to imply “Blessed” or a “Consecrated Nation.”
The first reference to the name ‘Salem’ is in Genesis 14:8. Later on King David made would conquer Zion and establish Jerusalem as his capital city as well as the spiritual center of his Kingdom. Jerusalem also became popularly known as the city of David which meant “a royal city” (2Samuel 5:6-9; 6:12). Jerusalem therefore means “the city of Peace. In the Kenyan context, it may be used to mean “Peace,” “Headquarters of Peace,” or the Government where “Peace Reigns.”
At least four powerful evil horns have been diffusing, thwarting, scattering, and opposing the Praise, Peace, and Blessings of Kenya and the people of Kenya abroad. Notice that there are four horns. In scripture, four is the number that symbolizes ‘earth’ and ‘man’. Moreover, if they have to do with the earth, then, these horns are indeed located in specific given geographical domains. In other words, their manifestation is physical under the guise of a ‘man made’ in the very land of Kenya. This also means that it is not a secret; the horns are already visible for all humans to behold.
Briefly let me revisit three important areas where these horns have sought dominion in the life of the Kenyans. The first is an attack on “Judah” – the Praise of God in Kenya. More than ever Kenya has witnessed an acute increase in syncretism leading to a mushrooming of numerous”temples of doom”. Although these temples are non-Christians, they are rich and no wonder they are now amalgamating themselves in the soil of Kenya. They therefore pose a severe threat to Kenya. On the other hand, many so-called “enlightened Churches” have also corrupted themselves with egotistical and egocentrical humanistic doctrines. The result of which is that true praise and worship of Jehovah has been desecrated even in the very tabernacles of worship. It is now sad that where worship has been compromised, God is no longer being Worshiped or Praised as Jehovah.
In a recent vision, one Christian Minster had acquired property in the heart of Nairobi with a view of erecting a mega church. However, just before construction begun, there erupted a fierce uproar from a leading ‘faith’ in Kenya. The opposition was so great resulting to a civil war. Ohh that true worshippers may arise and turn Kenya back to true worship of Jehovah so that Kenya may Rise Up (2Chronicles 7:14).
The second area of attack is “Jerusalem” – the Peace of Kenya. The motive is to destabilize all branches of peace in Kenya so much, so that Kenya and Kenyans at large knows no peace. Today, many Kenyans are never at peace with themselves or with their neighbors. Tribal mistrust in certain localities is higher than ever especially. Killings, crime, and corruption are on a record high. Ohh that God may arise and all God’s enemies be scattered so that Kenya may Rise Up (Psalms 68:1).
The third area of attack is “Israel” – the blessings of Kenya. More than ever, the prosperity of the land is being looted and sold out to aliens. Nepotism, unemployment, and looting of resources are becoming the norm for some. Government departments including the Justice, Security, Local Government, Finance, Energy, Health, Foreign Affairs, Lands, Tourism, Information, Agriculture, Education, Transport, and even Parliament itself have become instruments of shame rather than prosperity. Many are dying hungry not because there is no food, but because, someone stole their food for money. Indeed the big fishes have resulted in consuming the smaller fishes without shame. Nevertheless, Jehovah is our shield and horn of salvation. He will surely save Kenya, and Kenya shall Rise Up (Psalms 2:1-3).
The word for Kenya is that though the Praise and Worship of God, Peace and the Governance of Peace; Prosperity and Blessings of Kenyans having been muted, so much so that “no one lifts up their head”, yet, God is sending four carpenters whose commission is to cut down the four horns (Zechariah 1:21). This is how Kenya shall rise!
I repeat, God’s hand is upon Kenya and Kenya shall rise up and not fall down. Moreover, even though darkness covers the whole country, yet God is sending God’s light to shine through the darkness! Arise now Kenya for God has already sent out God’s carpenters to cut off these horns in the North, South, East, and West!
However, as the horns are being amputated, there will indeed be a strong shaking in Kenya. A strong shuddering that will affect and surprise many. Nevertheless, we need not be alarmed for there is no way the horns can come down without the shaking. In fact, even as we speak, the shaking has already begun even though many cannot see it. There is already a fall out of the big political parties like ODM and PNU and new alliances being forged. This will continue for the next seven months.
Remember seven is the number of completion, abundance, and perfection. And I declare seven months till the year of our Lord 2010. Once again, the number ten represents obedience and completeness of order. Ohh that the Lord may complete what God has begun this month until its perfection and fruition!
Finally, a word for honorable William Ruto: Get your ways right with God and with your elders because God’s hand is upon you. Do not fear or be dismayed but be strong and courageous to accomplish the task God has assigned for you. Yes, if you hearken to God, God will mightily use you as an instrument of peace, unity, prosperity, and healing to Kenya and the people of Kenya. Yes, God will restore your soul after which you will gain unprecedented favor both with God and with the Kenyans. “He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying” (Revelation Rev. 3:15).

Weep Not Kenya!
By Bishop Dr. Douglas P. Muchiri
April 2009

 

 

It is truism that many Kenyans are living on the threshold of angst, and weeping. Indeed, the weeping is only a tip of the inhabited desperation, and despair. Moreover, since the present grief is so excruciating and horrendous, the future has altogether become bleak and quail. Nevertheless, we need not weep, I repeat, we need not startle because God has heard your cry and will indeed recompense the tears.
God can be trusted to come to our aid because God is sovereign. This sovereignty allows God to behold all that we go through be it good or evil. Then out of grace and in accordance to God’s will and purpose, God responds to our tears. For instance, when Cain took the life of his brother Abel, God came to avenge the murder of Abel, for “The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground” Genesis 3:10. Moreover, when Pharaoh killed the Jewish boys, once again, God came to the deliverance of the Jews saying, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people and have given heed to their cry because of their taskmasters” (Exodus 3:7).
I must encourage that dear astringent soul that YES! God does indeed collect your tears in bottles and keeps a record of your tears in God’s book” (See Psalms 56:8). This is because our God is a benevolent God, which means that God really does care for you. Ohh see how Jesus wept for Lazarus in John 11:35 and understand how much He God cares for you! This same Jesus is today interceding for you as a great high priest who has passed through the heavens where he now “sympathizes with our weaknesses.” So therefore, “let us now draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in the time of need” (Hebrews 4:14-16). For indeed, there is not a saving friend like the lowly Jesus.
Honestly, I must admit that at times it is hard for finite being like you and I to comprehend the love of an infinite omniscient God especially when tragedy, injustice and evil engulf us. Nevertheless, we must never allow ourselves to stress on that which God has not revealed to us because according to God’s word, the secret things of God do not belong to us, but to God (Deuteronomy 29:29). Instead our blessed assurance is anchored on the truth that, God has already revealed what we need to trust and believe in God, so that we may have abundant life in Christ Jesus (John 20:31). This truth is liberating and comforting to all those in distress too.
Consider this. When, Pharaoh tried annihilating the nation of Israel, God was busy preserving Moses who ironically was brought up in the courts of the very Pharaoh who issued the edit to kill all Hebrew boys (Exodus 1:22; 2:10). Moreover, when King Herold killed all male boys –two years and younger, God had already preserved baby Jesus via a dream communicated to Joseph at night (Matthew 2:13-15). Likewise, God has already made provision for your salvation and peace despite the raging dissonance.
For instance, when Jesus was agonizing in the garden of Gethsemane where he wept and perspired blood, God sent an angel to come minister to Jesus in that very hour of need (see Luke22:43-44). And when Paul and Silas were imprisoned in Philippi, these faithful prayed and sung praise to God though in pain and anguish. This all took place in the midnight hour when it hurt most. The result however, was that the Lord God opened all the doors and liberated the captives (Acts 16: 25-28). Ohh what a great hope and encouragement for us weeping today!
Beloved, the word of God for Kenyans today is that God was there when this thing happened and this same God will avenge for your justice. In addition, remember, vengeance only belongs to God and so only God is permitted to avenge. In fact, God does not need our help in judging others (see Matthew 7:1-5). Judgment is God’s job! Therefore, let God be God!
Weep not Kenya, for the Lord Jehovah is your Lord. God is your sure Strength and Salvation. Moreover, while you find yourself weeping alone, dear Saint of God, please do not fret for the Lord God has Remnants upon Remnants who have not compromised their faith or succumbed. Just remain Faithful and God will be your Shield and Shalom. For this is what the Lord says, “Behold I am coming quickly. Blessed is the one who pays serious attention to the words of the prophecy of God’s Word” (Revelation 22:7). Amen and Amen.
