SDA Church leader tells Malawi ‘not let devil take your eyes off Jesus’

In a country seeking to  overcome persistent poverty   abysmally low levels of education at all levels, and extensive unemployment and underemployment, Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Global President, Ted Wilson, on Saturday told some 40,000 people to be humble like Jesus who came onto the earth not to seek earthly glory but to establish the heavenly kingdom.

Wilson also noted that Malawi  is a land of abundant natural and cultural riches, yet great numbers of its people live below the poverty line.

He gave his sermon on Saturday when thousands braved rains braved to attend a Big Sabbath at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.

In his sermon held under the theme ‘Total Member Involvement’, Wilson urged Malawians to prepare for the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Speaking to the country’s Adventists,  Wilson said that they’re called to follow Jesus being  prayerful, saying prayer is the answer to the challenges they are facing.

“When you take your eyes off Jesus, something terrible will happen to you,” he said, citing an account in the bible of what happened to Peter on the sea.

“Keep your eyes on Jesus. Keep your eyes on God’s word. Do not let the devil to take your eyes off Jesus,” Wilson said.

This was the Wilson first and only service in this nation of 18 million people, a majority of whom are Christians.

Wilson arrived in the country on Friday through Kamuzu International Airport and is on Sunday expected to visit Malamulo Campus in Thyolo and the Blantyre Adventist Hospital, before leaving the country on Monday for Angola.

The SDA Pope? You have yours so don’t denigrate ours. Religious coexistence is very important. No holier than thou attitude, please.

The Seventh – Day Adventist Church doesn’t have a pope friend, and this one is not addressed as Holy Father, the Pope is addressed as “Holy Father,” the title only God can have – Read John 17:11 – You will see who alone is Holy Father. All the best as you search the scriptures. You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

The same crop of missionaries that hoodwinked our great grand fathers with lies in an imaginary God. They tell us to keep praying and believe that we are soon going to heaven, when they themselves are busy investing on earth. When the Creator made me, He gave me the earth to live in and rule, not heaven. So you can deceive your people and spare me because I need to see my Creator with my own eyes and talk to him and He talks back to me. I cannot worship a Holywood actor and imagine he is Jesus. Something must… Read more »

Jesus, god and the devil do not exist. Don’t waste the time of Malawians with this nonsense. What about Chisumphi? Zeus? Shiva? Papa Legba? All these, just like this so called Jesus, are man made concepts. Let’s grow up and plan using real life data and logic!

You are too small to describe God friend, You should imagine if a grasshopper had speech, and you are passing by and its challenging you, how real would this challenge be? That’s how small we are before the eyes of the Creator. I will start with your field, u don’t know 100% of your professional career, that’s why u need to go for masters and PHD but even then you still do not go to 100%. If we added other fields then your knowledge goes down to less than 5%. Tell me how much can someone with that low a… Read more »

Well, this is the exact gospel message that church leaders really need to take to the world out there. Those who preach the great gospel of Jesus and his soon coming are certainly on the right path.
