Christians walking during palm sunday celebrations in Lusaka. last week.

Christians from walks of life today commemorated Palm Sunday.

Palm Sunday is an important event on the Christian calendar as it reminds Christ followers the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem towards the close of his ministry on earth.

Christians commemorate the event by holding match pasts and wilding palm branches signifying the kingship of Jesus.

The Salvation Army of Libala Temple was among the several denominations that took to the streets to commemorate the annual event.

Ministering to the congregants shortly after a successful match past, Salvation Army, Libala temple Captain Matilda Simamba urged church members to lead a humble life.

Captain Simamba told the congregation to emulate the humble life of Christ as demonstrated when he rode on a donkey despite being the son of God.

She explained in the sermon that Christ would have used a majestic animal such as a horse but opted to use a donkey as a way to show his humility.

Captain Simamba pointed out that a donkey was often seen as animal of low value in the ancient times yet Christ used it to enter Jerusalem.

In her message titled “donkey of destiny” Captain Simamba explained that Christ can use any person despite their social economic life to accomplish his work.

He encouraged believers not to underrate themselves as useless because Christ is ready to use any person to enlarge his kingdom.

Captain Simamba stressed that the onus was on every Christian to surrender their lives to God.

She narrated that God was only ready to use believers who fully surrendered their lives to him.

Captain Simamba centered her sermon on Luke chapter 18 reading from verses 1 to 30.

  1. Religion is a control mechanism, religions created the death of countless millions in confusion, poverty, wars, slaves, ect.. Religion create fear and fear is a disease that shouldn’t never been in the African folklore. This is why Black Folks don’t have an identity and are disengage from there greatness because of religions, something that was implemented to strip African(Alkebulanians) from their powerful history that stretch back over 1.5 million years of incredible greatness. We are a powerful spiritual group of people who’s eternally in tune with nature and the universe.

    • This was not for you mate. You didn’t have to read the news item.

      You have wasted your time; and you have exposed yourself for what you are.

      Letter from King Leopold II of Belgium to Colonial Missionaries, 1883

      “Reverends, Fathers and Dear Compatriots: The task that is given to fulfill is very delicate and requires much tact. You will go certainly to evangelize, but your evangelization must inspire above all Belgium interests.
      Your principal objec tive in our mission in the Congo is never to teach the niggers to know God, this they know already. They speak a
      nd submit to a Mungu, one Nzambi, one Nzakomba, and what else I don’t know. They know that to kill, to sleep with someone else’s
      wife, to lie and to insult is bad.
      Have courage to admit it; you are not going to teach them what they
      know already. Your essential role is to facilitate the task of administrators and industrials, which means…

  3. Brothers and Sisters, It is important to understand how African spiritual traditions became demonised in modern society…African spiritual practices in the 18th and 19th centuries were associated with slave revolts.
    Enslaved Africans believed that the practices gave them spiritual protection. The colonialists enacted a series of laws over the years preventing traditional worship. Christian missionaries went even further by declaring all aspects of these traditions as the work of the devil…its so sad to see Africans in Zambia like that photo who are brainwashed to a point where they are out of the minds celebrating such irrelevant events.

    Wake up, study about self and free yourselves from mental slavery!!

      Letter from King Leopold II of Belgium to Colonial Missionaries, 1883

      …you will go to interpret the gospel in the way it will be the best
      to protect your interests inthat part of the world. For these things, you haveto keep watch on disinteresting our savages from the richness that is plenty [in their underground. To avoid that, they get interested in it, and make you murderous] competition and dream one day to overthrow you.
      Your knowledge of the gospel will allow you to find texts ordering,
      and encouraging your followers to love poverty, like “Happier are the poor because they will inherit the heaven” and, “It’s very difficult for the rich to enter the kingdom of God.” You have to detach from them and make them disrespect everything which gives courage to…

  4. Letter from King Leopold II of Belgium to Colonial Missionaries
    1883
    ……….Convert always the blacks by using the whip. Keep their women in nine months of submission to work freely for us. Force them to pay you in sign of recognition-goats, chicken or eggs-every time you visit their villages. And make sure that niggers never become rich. Sing every day that it’s impossible for the rich to enter heaven. Make them pay tax each week at Sunday mass. Use the money supposed for the poor, to build flourishing business centres.Institute a confessional system, which allows you to be good detectives denouncing any black that has a different consciousness contrary to that of the decision-maker.Teach the niggers to forget their heroes and to
    adore only ours. Never present a chair to a black

  5. “The above speech which shows the real intention of the Christian missionary journey in Africa was exposed to the world by Mr. Moukouani Muikwani Bukoko, born in the Congo in 1915, and who in 1935 while working in the Congo, bought a second hand Bible from a Belgian priest who forgot the speech in the Bible. – Dr. Chiedozie Okoro
    We should note:
    1] that all missionaries carried out, and stillcarry out, that mandate. We are only lucky to have found King Leopold’s articulation of the aim of all Christian imperialist missionaries to Africa.

    2] Even the African converts who today manage
    the older churches in Africa (the priests, bishops, Archbishops, Cardinals etc of the Roman and Protestant sect s), and especially also those who evangelize Born-Again Christianity, still serve the same…
