HH’S STANDING WITH GOD HIGHLY QUESTIONABLE

As MMD youths, we find the statement from UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema that he will not attend the October 18 National Day of Prayer and Fasting highly regrettable and unfortunate.

Instead of commending the convenors of this important event, Mr Hichilema was on a radio programme denouncing the move and describing the event as a mockery to God.

We believe that President Edgar Lungu’s proclamation that the entire nation dedicates this day to prayer and fasting is consistent with the teachings of the Holy Bible.

It therefore baffles us that a leader was has attempted to rule this country a record number of times could place conditions before he could participate in this key national undertaking.

We wish to remind Mr Hichilema that all leadership is anointed by God and that God speaks through his appointed leaders. We believe that President Lungu is simply a vessel that God wants to use to reposition Zambia for greatness.

The history of Zambia is full of moments in which the entire nation came together under a single umbrella and cried out to God for help and the Almighty God has always seen us through.

From the 1990 political crisis that saw a return to multipartism, the Gabon air disaster to the third term debate, Zambia as always sought the face of God under trying times to restore hope.

It is clear that the nation is today facing numerous social and economic challenges and it is imperative that a day dedicated to prayer and fasting is observed.

By refusing to participate in the National Day of Prayer and Fasting, Mr Hichilema has yet again reignited has old debate about his standing with the Lord.

We know that the Bible commands us not to judge but we surely cannot allow a man who desperately wants to rule this country to approach national issues with too many questions about his religious beliefs and principles.

We therefore call upon all the Church mother bodies to challenge Mr Hichilema to explain the true reasons why he is shunning this important event. The Church mother should also take time to counsel and preach to Mr Hichilema about why a storing relationship with God is important as a leader.

As MMD youths we shall not allow leaders such as Mr Hichilema to get closer to the echelons of power without straightening their relationship with God.

We support Dr Nevers Mumba as leader of the MMD because we fully understand how much Dr Mumba loves God.

Even our past Presidents from Dr Chiluba, Dr Mwanawasa to Mr Banda, they all attended national prayer events.

Our call therefore goes to all political leaders that aspire to lead Zambia especially Mr Hichilema to come clean on matters of the Lord.

We can only conclude that Mr Hichilema still has a lot of question marks about his relationship with God which makes him unsuitable to lead the Zambian people. We can also conclude that maybe the UPND leader fears to be in the house of prayer because he does not want to be delivered.

  1. Please Lusambo find gainful employment. Zambia needs productive young men – not leeches. Unfortunately most able bodied young Zambians are choosing politics over productive work. HH is a business man, who makes contributions to the country’s economy. You need to get a job, gain real-life experience before sensible people can take you seriously.

    • But HH has to think twice otherwise he will greatly regret in the near future.
      He is too much of a politician,business man but not of a humble christian.

      Saying no to national prayer program sure!! Please HH humble yourself before God.
      I believe that one day you will change for the better. Its better to lose 2016 elections
      than to shun prayer and fasting program sir.

    • You turn politics into an eating machine and sugar-coat it with the so called “Christian Nation” and hope God will help. Nope! That’s not God’s ways. It’s like an Adulterous husband asking for prayers to salvage his marriage when he’s still banging his concubine……..more like a thief getting into a confession booth after planning the next robbery! Somewhere along the way we allowed murderers, madmen and drunkards to take our country away from God fearing people, and we’re paying the price. The pathetic fools running our country today are fully metamorphosed MMD (murderers, madmen and drunkards)

  4. Please guys spare us all this preaching. Faith is a private matter between each individual and his or her god – whatever that god might be. Zambia is not a Christian Theocracy and may it never be. Some people do not even believe in the god of the Bible. Why try and force everyone to pray to your god? My point still stands. We need productive, gainfully employed people – not preachers and politicians!

That’s why this whole thing is not genuine but a PF Public Relations Exercise to divert attention from the national crisis Zambia is facing. You will not deceive God.

    • They said “national” not “Christian” prayers. Clearly, you do not understand why fellowship is important. You are free to continue worshipping in your bedroom. But do not hide under labelling the prayer call as meaningless just because you want to hide your suspected strange behavior. The SDA Church will participate, so why is one elder saying he wont?

  10. “The biggest enemy of the poor are politicians and men of religion”-Annoymous. Politicians and “men of God” use the name of God to play psychology on unsuspecting citizens. The whole “national prayer” thingy is to play on Zambians psychology so that they accept that nothing “humanly” possible can be done. We call it “keeping the cow stable while the milking goes on”

Before you remove a speck in HH,’s eyes, remove a log from your eyes so that you can see better. No wonder Zambia is where it is today if indeed you can categorize yourself as a leader.

    -ROMANS 3:23 “FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF ALL GOD” TRANSLATION WE ARE ALL SINNERS AND IT IS BY GRACE THAT WE ARE SAVED.
    – HOSEA 8:4 ” THEY HAVE SET UP KINGS WITHOUT MY CONSENT. THEY HAVE APPOINTED PRINCES BUT I KNEW IT NOT. WITH THEIR SILVER AND GOLD THEY HAVE MADE IDOLS THAT THEY MAY BE CUT OFF”.
    I IMPLORE YOU TO STUDY THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT LED TO GOD MAKING THE SECOND STATEMENTS. NOT ALL LEADERSHIP IS ORDAINED BY GOD. WHEN GOD ORDAINS LEADERSHIP A NATION IS BLESSED LOOKING AT WHAT WE ARE GOING THOUGH IN ZAMBIA IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE THAT THAT IS WHAT GOD WANTED FOR US.

How then can you endure the issues of spirituality that seem to be full of persecution & takes a rough road.Leave HH alone,if the intent of your prayers are genuine God will answer you even when HH is not there.Or don’t you believe in God.Why is HH’s presence be a big issue when the person who organised these prayers will be there.The God i know can answer the prayers of even…

  23. It is a well known fact that the Catholic Church was not agreeable to the wholesale declaration of Zambia as a Christian Nation did it make them questionable about their christen beliefs and faith? Leave religious matters out of politicking as each human being is only accountable to the God that he/she serves. This nonsense that leaders are anointed by God should stop making the rounds as it is as good as those who keep singing about it for if indeed leaders are anointed by God, (which anointing I am not sure of), then accept to carry in the same vein the anointing of the likes of Hitler, Idi Amin, Kim Il Sung, Saddam Hussein etcetera for there is only ONE God as believed by the faithful who must have chosen these people! Why the hypocrisy that only when it suits the situation one likes…

  25. contd……that’s when it is authentic? In my own opinion leadership is developed and it embraces a lot facets enhanced with ones intelligence and environment.

    Let each one suit themselves the way they deem fit with the call to national prayer as it is not for anybody to force it down the throats of the citizenry. Even priests prepare themselves to be in alignment with God before they ascend the podium to deliver the word of God and force no one to take their word for it but ‘invite’ the faithful to ask and let God deliver them with open hearts!

Government is using this fear of God on you. Nothing is functioning in Zambia. A lot of Zambians go hungry everyday and the common comment from everybody is “Mulungu ndiye aziba”?!? Well, He does not know. When the government starts doing it’s job and has all services functioning as they should in a normal country, He will know for sure!

How do you expect such a man who has no regard for prayers to his creator to come and take good care of ordinary people? Now I have no doubt that HH is a true SATANIST. Whether a Christian or not, one must always strive to be Godly and submit to his creator through prayer. I do not believe that the PF has been so evil as to deserve the condemnation we are seeing. Some people have just a problem of swallowing sour grapes. You lost to ECL but hold your fire for now because your time may just be by the horizon and we hope you will also be able to put with the insults and redicule like Jamason is doing.
