I have been following up social media debate on the ‘Man of God’ Major 1 Prophet Sherpard Bushiri for the past weeks. And my simple analysis on most of the views, accusations and attacks against him makes me conclude that Bushiri is just a victim of the usual Malawi evil spirit of jealousy, envy, don’t shine over me, he is just a victim of spiritual and material failure of the enemies of the Body of Christ.
What is interesting in regard to the accusations is labelling him a fake Prophet for performing few unfavourably miracles according to them.
Listen am not trying to verify him whether he is fake or not but what is confusing to me is if we are saying he is fake then show one who is a true Man of God. We can’t just make noise that his miracles are fake, then bring us then genuine one then? But just to label him fake is not convincing to some of us.
In Mark 6:1-5 Jesus experienced the same denial even after performing many miracles during his Ministry. The Pharisees always doubted him, asking where did he get all these powers to perform miracles, is he not the carpenters son, son of Mary and brother to James. With all what Jesus was doing still they doubted. And Jesus always reminded them “Prophets are respected everywhere expect in their own home town and by their relatives and their family. “
The anointing of healing, deliverances or miracles is an issue between God and the one he has anointed. I will not question God why He anointed Prophet Bushiri to do wonders or Pastor Elijah Chisiza to heal the sick, why I will not, is because “God is God, Let Him be God”
The other question is why we are so noisy about these miracles yet Jesus Christ already said we will do more greater things than Him.
In John 14:12 the Scriptures says “I am telling you the truth those who believe in me will do what I do, yes they will do even greater things because I am going to the Father.”If Jesus left us with these powers why is our faith failing us not believe we can do mighty things more than what Jesus did?
I will not dispute about GODs miracles because I am the testimony of His healing, His glory, His favor. This year I would have been two years in my grave and in hell. Thank God for His touch upon my life.
God should just help our nation to move away from our traditional christianity of kneeling before idols or commit to rules. It is time for massive contemporary christianity of demonstrating Gods power through healing, deliverances and miracles.
People have so many problems and challenges, their lives are in a bondage, many people are walking corpses, with thier heads upside down and the only weapon is spiritual connection to Jesus Christ and not our religious rituals.
Glory be to God, lets us respect and honour His Servants.A so claimed God fearing nation can do better than this.
‘Major 1’can go deeper even, it’s not a crime !
