Miracle? Rains pour after Ncwala sacred sacrifice

Share

As the sacred rituals of the Ncwala ceremony unfolded, a symbolic moment occurred as soon as the sacrifice was made – the heavens opened up with the blessing of rain.

The Ncwala ceremony, a significant cultural event of the Ngoni people, witnessed this auspicious occurrence during its 2024 edition. As tradition dictates, the ceremony involves various rites and rituals, including offerings and sacrifices to honor ancestors and seek blessings for the community.

No sooner had the ceremonial sacrifice been made than the skies responded with the arrival of rain. This timely precipitation holds deep spiritual significance, symbolizing the favor and approval of the ancestors.

The rain’s arrival was met with reverence and gratitude by participants and observers alike, as it is believed to bring fertility to the land and ensure a bountiful harvest in the coming seasons. It is seen as a tangible manifestation of divine blessing and protection.

  1. Let not the false pagan gods be honored over the One True God who sent his only son Jesus Christ to save our souls.

    These pagan rituals are the work of Satan and no one should partake in them.

    That rainfall did not come from Mpezeni’s false gods. It came from the one true God who created the heavens and the earth.

    • 2020 Vision, ancestral worship makes more spiritual sense than reaching God through Jesus Christ. All departed ancestors constitute a long line to the origin of humanity. And what’s the origin? Surely it’s the creator whatever term you wish to call it, him or her. African spirituality has its own significance and it’s no less valid than the Middle Eastern trinity whose practioners both ended up enslaving Africans; I mean Christianity and Islam.

  2. This should NOT be practiced in our Land because it is IDOL worship. We have passed that stage as Nation. Ancestors don’t own rain. The owner of the rains is the God of Heaven, the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, He holds the wind and the water. The door that He shuts no one can open and what He opens no one can close.

    For this, the Nation should REPENT and turn away from this sin or risk inviting God to show who has the power between Him and the ancestors of the Ngoni (or Zambians) by bringing another drought.

    I pray that we should not risk taking this route because the price to pay is heavy when on challenges our God.

  3. The east is blessed nkhosi wa nkhosi. I lt was a momentous occasion when this happened. The heavens opened and I felt cleansed. God is trying to cleanse this country from the upnd eviL splrlts

  4. 2020 .vision never learnt religious education which stresses respect, understanding, and tolerance of other people’s beliefs aimed at lliving in harmony in these multi cultural anxieties. If you are a Christian don’t insult moslems
    And call them pagan, if you have abandoned your own religion don’t insult your conservative relatives

  5. I agree with awe, vision 2020 is just an *****. He takes himself to be righteous but the Bible says if you call yourself righteous then you are just fooling yourself. Vision, remember an African Mullins of years ago and the Almighty God took care of an African, and provided guidance, protection, healing provisions and communication through the ancestral spirits. Not that these foreign religions just came to Africa just a few years ago. To me lt was Gods arrangements.

  9. Why are these men in the ceremony so thin , bone skeletons and malnourished ? They look like they are the sacrifice – thanks to the poverty induced by PF for 10yrs.

  10. It always rain and it has always rained during the ncwala ceremony reason been that it takes place during the rain season regardless of the poor rain pattern. So there’s nothing like miracle please stop misleading people
