Defiled Altar

When the altar is defiled, disaster befalls the land and the people. These are the words of the Prophet of the Lord (paraphrased). 

But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine,[Daniel1]

Daniel, though a young man, must have known the severity of the consequences of defilement. He must have known that it was defilement that caused Israel to end up in captivity in Babylon. Israel decided to defile the Sabbaths of the Lord.

The Lord had warned Israel many times. He said:

33 ‘“Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land, and atonement cannot be made for the land on which blood has been shed, except by the blood of the one who shed it. 34 Do not defile the land where you live and where I dwell, for I, the Lord, dwell among the Israelites.”’ [Numbers 35, NIV]

Sin defiles the land and the earth. Indeed, sin defiles the entire universe. It defiles creation. Adam sinned and the consequence was death because the wages of sin is death [Romans 6:23]. God cursed the earth and Man saying: By the sweat of your brow     you will eat your food. Indeed it was painful to toil and till the land. It was not until Noah offered an acceptable sacrifice before the Lord did He remove this curse.

Cain shed the blood of Abel. The Lord had to put a mark on Cain so that those who meet him would not kill him. By the law of Moses, the blood of innocent can only be atoned for by the blood of those who shed it. It was tit for tat: A tooth for a tooth, an eye for an eye.

In the days of Noah, an entire generation was wiped out because of unrighteousness. Even angels married and had children with women causing the Lord to ask: For how long must I contend with man? Only Noah, a righteous man who walked with God, was saved together with his wife and sons and their wives: Eight people in all.


 19The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.[Romans 8: 19 - 21]


Creation is subjected to a bondage to decay because sin defiled creation. Therefore, it waits in eager expectation! What an understatement. On that Day, freedom will come to all creation. The Redeemer will finally manifest in His full glory and power. His way of truth will lead to life; brand new life devoid of the contamination of sin. 


All these scenarios point to the  enormity  of sin and its pervasive corruption;  the insolence of the human heart; the ultimate destination of that which is contaminated with sin. We begin to understand the genesis of God's wrath that will never be quenched by the fires of hell: He rejects sin, therefore, it must be destroyed.  All this time, He has endured the filth of sin. But a day will come when He will demand payment for sin. Only the blood of the holy Lamb of God will save us.  

We now begin to appreciate the patience of the Lord;He gave us time to retrace out steps and find the Way of Life, that Highway of Holiness that is Christ, the  Anointed  One. 

Be afraid because death has always been close by; watching, waiting, bidding  his time to harvest his portion. Men are submerged by the mists of intellectual  pursuits; mistakenly  believing  that intellectual attainment places them above God. It is the same error that Lucifer made. It booked him a place in the eternal fire. 

Those who follow the path that Lucifer took will end in the same destination. It is a most  horrendous  conclusion. It is a most unthinkable destiny. But each has a choice: Your pride or your life. You can't have it both ways.

The Highway of Holiness is for the humble, the meek, the contrite, the repentant, the lowly, the pure in heart. It is for those who know submission and  surrender. Those who know the Lord is God and Master. The creator of heaven and earth. The origin of all origins. The  beginning  of all  beginnings. He who has no beginning and no end. He whose abode no one knows. One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Daniel understood that defilement was the stairway to the hell fire. He knew that destruction was coming to that which is impure. The Lord of Glory must destroy the earth and the heavens and create a brand new earth and brand new heavens where His glory is the light and the Lamb is its lamp. 

Meditate on those simple words that the Lord taught: 

Blessed are the pure, for they shall see God. 

Blessed are you who hear the call of the Lord and run to meet with Him. Your abode awaits you. He is eager to receive those who are His just as He is ready to punish those who reject Him. 

May the Almighty God, Jehovah-Mekaddishkem, the One who Sanctifies and makes whole, bless you.

The Controversy With Jehovah

It is clear that Kenya has a case with the God of Israel. This is what the Lord said to Israel, the apple of God's eye:

Hear the word of the Lord, you Israelites,
    because the Lord has a charge to bring
    against you who live in the land:
There is no faithfulness, no love,
    no acknowledgment of God in the land. [Hosea 4:1]

The Lord has a charge to bring against the church in Kenya:

  • It has preached money and the doctrine of  "panda mbegu"; the doctrine of the prosperity gospel from satan's kingdom;
  • It has practiced sexual immorality at the pulpit; Bishops have impregnated the worship leaders and forced them to procure abortions;
  • It has practiced witchcraft; pastors are known to carrying their bibles and microphones to witch-doctors in Tanzania so they may get powers to attract rich people in their churches; some pay tithe to witch-doctors yet lay their defiled hands on God's sheep;
  • False prophets and false apostles and false teachers abound in the church of Kenya; every ridge has its "prophet" who prophesies  demonic lies; Jeremiah would have been horrified had he lived in Kenya today.
  • They have worshiped idols of every kind including money and flesh
  • Some have organised to kill the mighty Prophet of God.
There is no end to this appalling record. 

The modern church in Kenya is so intoxicated with their modernity, they no longer have normal hearing. It is OK to come to church in tight trousers and for women to expose every part of their anatomy; for keshas to become regular adulterous orgies; for devil worshipers to stand at the altars of God and make mockery of the precious blood of Christ. For pastors to become the clients of prostitutes. For politics and the clergy to become bedfellows.

What a tragedy that we have lived for decades under a spirit of deception. We sought wealth and health in the places Jehovah despises; among His enemies. In the dark alleys of the underworld, spruced up with the false glory of bling blings and ghetto slang.

You can't tell a church goer apart from the prostitutes and in many instances the prostitutes are far better dressed than the deceived sisters in the church. What a calamity.

So fumigated are we with the poisonous  smog of 21st century theology that we barely know whether we are moving forward or backward let alone differentiate East from West. Christians are the most ardent practitioners of Yoga and New Age philosophies. Unlike Daniel, we can not distinguish the language and literature of Babylon from that of Jerusalem, the Mountain of God.

So now the Living God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth has brought a charge against Kenya. He demands that, like Nineveh, we go before him in sackcloth and ashes to repent of these profanities and abominations else His judgement shall surely fall upon this country; the overflowing cup of God's wrath shall surely be poured out again upon us if we fail to heed the requirements of the Lord and spoken by His most mighty Prophet Dr. David Edward Owuor.

The church in Kenya- Awake!! Wake up!! 
Rise and shine. The Sun of Righteousness is of His way.
Shake out the fog of your drunkenness.
Apply salve to your defective eyes.
Cleanse your ears with ointment.
The Lord of Glory is coming. How will you hear Him? How will you see Him?

An oracle concerning Dumah: Someone calls to me from Seir, "Watchman, what is left of the night? Watchman, what is left of the night?"[ Isaiah 21:11]

Not much is left of the night. The Bridegroom comes at midnight and Kenya is not yet ready. The bride of the Lamb of God is unprepared. What catastrophe!!

Wake up Kenya.

Jubilee

Every fiftieth year, the Lord commanded that land and houses that had been sold be returned to the original owner (there were exceptions). What a strange law! But the Lord explained clearly it is "because the land is Mine and you are but aliens and my tenants" (Lev. 25: 23). Now that is breaking news!

If a poor person sold their land they could refund the balance of the price paid after a certain period had passed and get back their land. The balance would be based on the years left until the Year of Jubilee when it automatically reverts to the human owner. If the poor person had no resources to redeem their land, a relative - kinsman redeemer - could do it on their behalf and he or she could then go back to their property.

What does this all mean to those who worship Jehovah? A man once gave up his birthright for a plate of broth. His name was Esau. Another one gave up his life because he honored his wife more than God. It was the first act of idolatry. His name of Adam.

Because of his disobedience, death came upon mankind until now. We lost our "land" and have nothing of value that can be used to redeem it. Only an acceptable sacrifice of blood  before the God of Heaven can release us from this curse of death.

But Job knew in those ancient days that his Redeemer lives. He did not live to see the Redeemer but we have seen Him!! His name is Christ Jesus. He has presented the most holy and perfect sacrifice before the Father; a sufficient sacrifice; a fitting atonement; a very steep price.

Does it not, therefore, mean that those who accept this gift of our Kinsman Redeemer will be able to return to their own property? Does it not mean that those exiled to Babylon can finally return home to Zion? That they no longer weep but can sing the Songs of the Lord! Does it mean we are no longer captives but free Men? No longer in chains but liberated!

You who have accepted Christ as your Saviour and Lord do not need to wait for the Year of Jubilee. He will redeem you right away. He is your Jubilee!

The Lord bless you today.

The Messiah is coming very soon. Prepare in absolute holiness.
Read your Bible every day and stay very close to the Lord.
