EBOLA: Why We Need To Repent

It’s been so long since I blogged, for many good reasons which I am unable to explain today. However, in a time pestilence and great havoc in Sierra Leone  (and her neighbours) I can only bring what’s on my heart. At first I thought I would bring daily updates but then others seem to be doing it better than I would (check here  and here –  I often doubt if these figures reflect the true situation. ).

One Hope In JesusThen I thought, I would do some research about how Ebola got to Sierra Leone…. a very enlightening process which hasn’t shocked me much based on my world view. I have even compiled a timeline of Ebola. But I asked myself is it worth it posting it here? Will people even believe these so-called “conspiracy theories” which end up being the truth later? Even if they believed would it save anybody? Will it stop Ebola? Will our government do anything about it?

Friends, we can give endless daily updates, debate all day as to how ebola started: the fact is Ebola is here and people are dying as a result. Bravo! to all those in the front lines helping to eradicate the disease and I pray for them daily.

We are In The End Times

Matthew 24: 3-8 (Pls read Lk 21, Mk 13, Mt 24)
3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Folks, we are in the END TIMES – END OF AN AGE in case you didn’t know. This is NOT BUSINESS AS USUAL. Such is the times we are living in. Just switch on Main Media and you will see wars, rumors of wars, flooding, untreatable diseases, economies sliding (as I am writing the dollar is sliding on it’s way to collapse I don’t know when), christians are being beheaded and crucified etc…. this is main news media alone. It’s even worse when you check alternative media.

My friend, it’s time to REPENT! This is not a battle for one country or the other. This is a battle for eternal souls.

After many warnings, God has began to remove his protection from the nations, darkness has began to cover the earth. (Is 60:1-3) Warnings have been there long time ago. Many have not heeded them. We are living in the time of the lunar tetrads or FOUR blood moons of 2014 & 2015. I witnessed on April 15th (on Passover), from my balcony, the beginnings of the first blood moon. Another one will happen in October and the rest next year. Folks I can go on forever….just open your eyes (may God give you revelation).

My question is: If you died today, where will you be? Is your faith in Jesus Christ and Him alone? (Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12) Are you trusting your money in the bank? Did you know your bank could be on the brink of collapse? Talk to the people of Cyprus who woke up one day to see the bank accounts frozen. (see here) Are you trusting your hoard of food at home? Talk to the people of Pakistan who were just flooded out of their homes. (see here) Are you trusting the gun you purchased the last time? What if you are not able to reach it in time? Are you trusting the government to protect you? REALLY? Are you planning on running to another country for protection? My friend, there’s no hiding place anymore! Except in Christ Jesus!

Judgement is coming to ALL nations. For those in the West, it will even be more spectacular. “Righteousness & Judgement  are the habitation on His throne.” (Ps 97:2) Meaning God will judge sin, yes our loving God will and is judging sin whether we like it or not: individual sins, national sins. And in these days where people sin and proudly export/promote their sin, the proverbial chickens have come home to roost.

Where do you stand? What have you got to say before an everlasting God from whom the whole heavens flee? What have you to say for yourself?

My Prayer

Lord God I repent of all my sins: my pride, prayerlessness, apathy, laziness, fear and doubt. I repent on behalf of the church here in Sierra Leone and worldwide. forgive us for the laziness, prayerlessness and sin that is prevailing in the church. If you should count our sin, who will stand? Have mercy on us. Forgive us our sins, forgive us the idolatry, the adultery, jealousies, lewdness, pornography, envyings, apathy, pride, greed, corruption, forgive our pastors for false prophecies, not preaching the truth, for making merchandise of the sheep, forgive us for having itchy ears to hear only what makes us feel comfortable.

Forgive us for the false gospels that are prevailing in this day and age including the prosperity gospel. Have mercy on the church for turning our all-night prayers into carnivals with no power, instead of seeking Your Holy presence, we seek vengeance and fire on our neighbours.

Forgive us of the filth and abominations we allow our eyes to see on TV, ipads and phones. Forgive us for wasting our precious time on social networks instead of studying Your word and pursuing Your presence. We repent of the innocent blood that is daily shed in secret places, we repent of the abortions, child and adult sacrifices that go on in the dark and in bushes. We repent of the witchcraft and invocation of demonic spirits that so prevails in our nation. We repent of all the goings on and idolatry in secret societies including freemasonry.

We repent of taking and giving  bribes. We repent of extortion, usury, building houses with money we have stolen from government. We repent of not paying our workers and taking advantage of them.  We repent of keeping the poor poorer and making the rich richer. We repent of armed robberies, indulging in drugs, gang rapes, murder and violence. We repent of constantly lying till we don’t even know the truth anymore. We repent of everything You call sin. Have mercy on us as individuals and as a nation.

Soften our hearts so that we will repent to the core and genuinely turn around from our sin to receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. We know in this world things will not get better because what You prophesied about the end times is happening now and will happen regardless.

Help us to be ready to meet Jesus pure in body, soul and spirit. For He is coming for a PURE Bride. May Your Holy Spirit strengthen us in our innermost part so we can stand with the whole armour of God in these evil times.

Bottom Line?

So what am I saying? By all means let’s help eradicate Ebola, however we can, let’s heed the warnings of the health workers to prevent it from spreading. But above all, lets REPENT and TURN TO the Lord Jesus Christ who is the only true God. Being a student of the Bible, I will be lying if I said the world situation will get better. It will not. So brace yourself and be ready for what is coming. Just make sure you are in the right place with God Jehovah through His Son  Jesus Christ.

Jesus is coming soon, are you ready to meet Him?

I rest my case.
