True Gospel with SAVIOUS-PARKER KWINIKA
THIS week, as I was meditating in prayer, Jehovah God challenged me as a scribe-cum-born again Christian to share this vital message with Africa and the entire world.
I don’t want to give the impression that I am a prayer maestro or genius, expert, whizz, deft, competent or that I’m clever. The truth is I do hear from Jehovah God loud and clear in the same manner you do when you pray.
Hearing from our Creator Jehovah God is not a prerogative or preserve for prophets, pastors or church founders.
Whoever seeks Jehovah God in Spirit and truth always finds Him. I’m explaining this so that we do not waste much time arguing whether I’m a prophet, church founder or pastor. I’m just a nobody but someone who of course chose to hear directly from Jehovah God and decided to share this first hand.
In most cases, I share such exciting information with my friend and brethren in Christ, Michael Mawere. However, in some instances, I write down for the purposes of record-keeping.
According to John 4:24, “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
Back to the main message for this week.
The announcement or communication I received was in the form of a question.
The query was about why we have so much poverty ravaging this otherwise beautiful African continent and parts of the world despite vast resources?
I stammered. I went blank. I was lost, perplexed, unresponsive, expressionless, confused and clueless.
Then immediately, the message said: “I gave each and every one of you a talent! However, people are not using their gifts hence so much suffering.”
I then realised a gift is a blessing given willingly to someone without payment. In other words, a gift is a present, talent, ability, expertise, capability, power, skill, cleverness, artistry, genius, technique or brilliance.
While I was busy meditating in the spirit, the voice spoke loudly: “Use the talent that you have, or else you get overtaken by time!”
The message said again: “I gave each one of you, including animals, talents. The talents are not being used hence the suffering.”
So, I wondered why we suffer yet we have talents that would make our lives better.
Being a man committed to research, I quickly embarked on analysing and fact-finding mission to ascertain where exactly the world is getting things wrong.
It emerged that human beings always have tendencies to forsake, drop or forgo the talents they have admiring what they are not talented in.
I realised this is the reason why even in marriages that break up easily, we often lose focus to the things that we have in possession chasing what we don’t have.
Dear reader of this True Gospel, as you peruse, or study this information given to me by my God Jehovah Almighty, ask yourself, what your talent is.
Are you using this talent to the best of your ability? If not, what is stopping you from using this freely given gift?
On Sunday, February 25, 2018, instead of going to church to worship with the rest of congregants, the Lord Almighty forbade me to go to church. Instead, He instructed me to be alone, only worshiping with termites and ants. Unbelievable!
I spent that day observing how termites and ants eke a living yet they do not have formal employment, careers or businesses.
I observed an army of ants just outside my yard in Johannesburg (South Africa). They were hunting, killing and eating their prey comprising worms, spiders and lizards.
I also moved to the other corner of my yard where I saw some termites feeding on dead plants and trees.
I went inside my house to grab a chair so that I carefully sit and observe these termites’ behaviour. I could see them eat paper, plastic, and drywall. Some termites were picking up wood, plants, cardboard, fabric and animal feces to the nearby coniferous forest.
I could not believe the kind of unity displayed by these creatures. They did not have a foreman, supervisor, overseer, manager, boss, chief, team leader, controller, captain or governor, yet their work was flawless.
The termites did their work perfectly. One therefore was left wondering why human beings always wanted to be controlled or punished in order to do good?
I was surprised, astonished and dumbfound by the spirit of unity shown by these creatures. Of course, that was part of my assignment for Sunday not to worship with human beings, but to pray with termites and ants. Isn’t it amazing?
The termites exhibited highest level of unity that made tears fall off my cheek.
When I had finished observing the livelihood, sustenance and nourishment of both ants and termites, then the message said: “This is what human beings lack yet they have dominion!”
Tears started falling down my cheeks again! This time the tears were spilling and flowing in shame. Well, these were tears of humiliation, shame, embarrassment, guilt but at the same time remorse.
I was to be outmanoeuvred by wild creatures?
While I admitted being outfoxed, the message from the Most High one said: “If you worship me in spirit and truth, all riches you desire become yours.”
Immediately, the verse of Deuteronomy 8:18 was thrown in. It reads: “But remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.”
As that was not enough, another verse was thrown in, this time, it was the common line in the book of Matthew 7:7 of the New Living Translation. It reads, “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.”
Matthew 28:19-20 of the New Living Translation reads: “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Another powerful biblical verse to back up Jehovah God’s word of favouring of human beings ahead of animals and creatures, of course was a verse on Matthew 6:26 which was thrown. It reads, “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
After this worship with ants and termites on Sunday, I therefore realised how important and powerful I was. Admittedly, I looked deep into my personal life, and got exposed.
I discovered the authority, supremacy, dominance, power, ability, capacity, capability and potential I have as a human being but under utilized or misdirected.
As a person made in Jehovah God’s likeness, resemblance, similarity and uniformity, I therefore admitted I had dominion on earth over creatures.
In the same context, I would like to urge you all to go and use the gifts or talents you have been freely given.
Use the talents disposed in you, otherwise time would not wait for lazy thinking people. When Jehovah God gave us the gifts and talents, He also gave wild animals and creatures too.
Therefore, as human beings, we can’t be outwitted or outsmarted by creatures yet we have been made of Jehovah God’s likeness. Let us use the talents we possess, lest we get overtaken by time.
Let us stop admiring other women’s husbands, or other men’s wives. Let us work and strive to ensure we are the best we can be to our spouses.
What we have right now are big talents but the challenge is that we abandon them in admiration of other people’s. Learn to appreciate what you have so that you can enjoy the benefits. Otherwise time is not on your side.
Those who believe in this True Gospel say amen!
