Why You Should Honour Elvis Mbonye

He saw the invaders long before they came.

In a vision, he saw people with wings like butterflies and skins of babies. These strange people would come in granaries which ran on ropes.

Not just that, these people had a strange liking for land, they ate it like food. According to his vision, these weirdos would also alienate children from their parents and societies.

This prognostication came to pass.

The people came. The wings with butterflies were aeroplanes. The colour of their skin was like that of babies—white. They brought along a foreign education system that alienated children not only from their parents but also their societies.

And the part where they ate land, they actually ate it. Not literally, but they rather stole it from its original owners.

These people were the colonialists. And the man who saw all this before it all happened was Nyakairima-Ka-Muzoora, a Mukiga from Kigezi. His prognostic prowess was a mixture of accuracy and enormous experience.

[Accurate] prediction is an age-old game.

Elvis Mbonye and the New Wave of Prediction

Elvis Mbonye is not your usual pastor. According to the Matooke Republic, he is “hip and trendier than your average flashy pastor. His wardrobe is not shy of white and pink jackets. He cuts the look of more of a metrosexual man than a ‘man of God’”.

In fact, he loves to spend and later make it known to whoever cares to know. He intimated to a reporter how 35 million Uganda shillings (about $ 9, 290) is spent every week on just the venue, tent and sound system so that his weekly fellowship can happen.

Sometime last year, he bought for himself a 2017 model of a Range Rover Vogue. But who is this guy?

There is not a lot that I could gather on Mbonye, but he shot to the limelight when he started his weekly Zoe Fellowships in 2014. Together with the effective publicity of his prediction of current events which left many millennials impressed, Mbonye would go on to make a name for himself in the charismatic spirituality camp.

Recently, he caused a stir when he announced to the world, through a reporter, that he had been having regular meetings with Jesus. He also apparently walked on heaven’s golden streets. In his own words, he said, “I have been to heaven, and it is a glamorous place with streets of gold. All attributes about God are glamour and beauty, and I’m of God, so I will unapologetically be always on the side of what is rich.”

Testimony to Prediction

Elvis Mbonye’s fame and popularity can solely be attributed to his ‘accurate’ predictions. It is these successful prognostications that are used as sales pitches in TV commercials when he advertises his weekly gathering.

Clearly, Mbonye is a smart marketer. He knows what sells and where, and he is not afraid to feed into the cravings of his consumers. On his website’s homepage, a string of video clips about his supposedly successful predictions greet the visitor.

Popularly known as a prophet, it is strange that he is known for predicting the Oscars, helicopter crashes and BREXIT instead of bringing both judgement and gospel comfort to God’s people. I talk about prophecy in detail below.

A Preacher’s Testimony

If there was anyone who would boast, it was the Apostle Paul. From the manner in which he was called, the transformation that happened to his theology, and then the fact that he would go on to write most of the New Testament. He was also the chief guy called by Jesus to evangelise the Gentile world.

Paul was a big deal. He also knew it, yet he chose to deflect all the praise that came to him to God. He “decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.”

Paul’s awareness was that man does not call himself. Even when he is called, it is not to glorify the called but the caller. That is why he says things like “for me to live is Christ and to die is gain.”

For those genuinely called, the call is an abandonment of self for divine service. It is a death to self and the glitters of this world for the hope of the glory in the world to come.

Yet, Mbonye embodies the opposite. He loves money, fame, glamour, pomp and power. He is so in love with this fallen world (and its things) to the point that one wonders whether Paul’s exaltations to look to things above, not things below (Col. 3:1-2) mean anything in Mbonye’s theological framework.

In fact, he has claimed that heaven is full of such pomp and glamour. In his own words, he said, “The Lord showed me hell and the people who went there. Hell is stuffy, poor, sickly, and degrading. I have been to heaven, and it is a glamorous place with streets of gold. All attributes about God are glamour and beauty, and I’m of God, so I will unapologetically be always on the side of what is rich. You want me to be in a car where I sweat?”

There are at least two problems with this statement. One, the scriptures do not support it. Nowhere does the bible say that hell is “stuffy, poor, sickly, and degrading”, these are ideas from his head. For a person who claims to be a follower of Jesus, the primary thing he would have done is to teach the very words of Jesus which he has believed, yet here he is inventing his own creed.

Two, these comments are ungracious and degrading to the poor, and sick. It is a disservice when someone who should be comforting the poor takes on the role of ‘accuser’. In a way, what he is saying is that whoever is poor or sick belongs to hell while heaven is reserved for the rich. What a gracious preacher!

Who did Jesus say the Kingdom of heaven belonged to? Let us listen:

And as Jesus reclined at table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were reclining with Jesus and his disciples. And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. Go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Matthew 9:10-13, emphasis mine)

In this text, Jesus uses the two words ‘sinner’ and ‘sick’ synonymously. Sinners are sin-sick, so to speak. You can now see how Jesus and Mbonye are back-to-back instead of being face-to-face. They preach two different gospels, one says that he came for the poor, and weak while the other says that the weak belong to hell.

Honouring the Prophet and the Plunder of the prophetic

The pictures of mature men kissing another man’s shoes caught most of us by surprise. We later came to learn that prophets have to be honoured and that according to the textbook, going down to smooch a cleanly polished pair of shoes is the best way to do it.

This year, they honoured their man again. But what interests me is the reasoning behind this shoe-kissing festival. Why do they do it? For what purpose? For how long will this go on?

A Prophet-honouring Defence for Shoe-kissing

In a short article published in the Observer, a one Wisdom Peter Katumba tries to answer some of these questions. He states that in every generation, there are men on whom God puts a dispensation of grace so that they would be honoured. To be clear, I don’t know what that means, but let us move on.

Katumba goes on to add that God works through these men with feats ‘unmatched’ and ‘unparalleled’.

Who are these men? Have we had any in the past? Where do these ideas come from? I am aware that he is using 1 Corinthians 9:17 and Colossians 1:25 as a reference, but do these texts say anything to this effect? Sadly, these two texts may not be a worthy defence.

I have always told people that to sustain a skewed theology, you will have to skew more Bible texts and in the end, you will have no new texts to skew. The best thing to do, therefore, if you are to be faithful to the scriptures is to go somewhere else to find reasons to support your [skewed] cause. Make sure that source is not the Bible.

Why Elvis Mbonye is way Greater than Jesus Christ

It is with either bravery or sheer ignorance that Katumba writes, “In our generation, Prophet Mbonye is the man that carries the dispensation of God’s Grace for the last move of the church.” He goes on to add that: “This means that anyone from any field of life that wants to manifest the designated grace of God for this very last age must honour and submit themselves to him. This bold assertion is provable by any genuine seeker and if any man be otherwise minded; even God will tell them the same thing.”

While you have your quiet time, be reminded that Elvis Mbonye is the one that carries the dispensation of God’s grace for the last move of the Church, not Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit. God’s saving grace will no longer come to us through a perfect God-man worthy to atone for our sins before his Father. Instead, we will fix our eyes on Elvis Mbonye.

Furthermore, when Jesus in Matthew 16:18 says that he is building his church and the gates of Hades will not overcome it, or when Paul writes to the Ephesian church (5:25-27) that Jesus Christ is coming for is “a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless”, we should not take too seriously. At least we all know that the church rides on the grace dispensed through Elvis Mbonye.

Other people believe that Mbonye is “God’s avenue for men to awake to and believe what He is doing in their generation through that particular man.” Thank God for Mbonye because we now know where faith to believe God comes from. Before I read Katumba’s article, I had always held that faith is a gift from God granted through the hearing of the Gospel. I guess Paul was just idle when he wrote that:

How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? … So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. (Romans 10:14-15, 17)

Here Paul did not know what he was saying, look to Mbonye you will get faith to believe God.

Everything you Heard about Grace is Wrong

I am sure some of you have heard people like Paul say that grace is God’s undeserved favour to sinners and sufferers. Paul even devotes sizable portions of his letters to this discussion. For example he writes to the Galatians 3:13-14 that “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”— so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.”

This topic is his central theme in the epistle to the Romans. But I think the church since the apostolic times got it wrong. There are things you must do to receive grace from God—grace is not free, someone has to pay, and it is you paying. Mbonye’s deal is even better than Jesus’.

Katumba concludes his article that you should “go and get your very best and deliver it reverently at the feet of this man and you, in turn, connect with that invisible grace.” This is way easier than stuff like dying to myself and carrying my cross (Luke 14:27). Besides claims that the last will be first (Mark 10:31), and the poor will be rich seem to be too good to be true (2 Corinthians 8:9). Considerably, you have to be out of your mind to say that in order to live you must first die. That is ridiculous. Even here, Mbonye beats Jesus. Fair game.

Is he Really a Prophet?

It is easy to fall down at the feet of a guy and worship him because he got a couple of predictions right. Thank God I did not fall at the feet of Musoke when he rightly predicted a couple perfect scores in the game of sports betting, even when he presented the ticket as evidence. Besides, the prophets of old never functioned this way.

Prophecy in the Old Testament was not a game of prediction. It was rather a proclamation of the gospel. It was through prophets that God pronounced judgement on his people. Through them, he also communicated the Good News—a word of promise. There was a sense in which this promise looked like a prediction, but that was never the case.

The promise was a word of Gospel, it carried salvific (saving) significance. God’s people would be hopeful because that word alone was their salvation. Prophets were preachers of law (a word of condemnation) and gospel (a word of promise).

However, in the New Testament, things change. While the Old Testament prophets spoke for God, they were also a pointer to the one True Prophet that would come out of Nazareth, the true and final answer to the sinfulness and rebellion of God’s people.

“The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John. Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is forcing their way into it.” (Luke 16:16)

According to Jesus, the last prophet was John the Baptiser. From then afterwards, the Good News of the coming of the Kingdom of God would be preached. In other words, the ministry of the prophets found its end in the coming of the Messiah: the promise had been fulfilled.

Just like the apostolic office, the prophetic office was instrumental for its foundation-laying purpose. When the foundation was laid, what remained was to build on that foundation (see 1 Corinthians 3:11-14 and Ephesians 2:20). There are no more foundations to lay.

You may ask: what about instances in the New Testament where Paul refers to prophecy as a gift to be desired? Well, to Paul, prophecy or prophēteia is preaching. Your pastor stands before you every Sunday, and through God’s law, he points to your sin and through the Gospel, he points you away from yourself and onto the Messiah who has promised to come back and make all things new.

Now to the question: Is Mbonye really a prophet? I leave that for you to answer.

Where do we go from here?

We love strategies but acting on them, not so much. I would suggest you find a theologically sound church, led by a seminary (theological school) trained pastor and then commit to reading your Bible regularly with the guidance of your pastor.

I would also suggest that you run when a certain ‘man of God’ tells you that matters of faith are matters of the heart only, not the mind. Honestly, you cannot love and worship God without common sense and reason, but you don’t need those to do and believe all the laughable things those spiritual entrepreneurs will tell you to do.

Prediction without salvific significance is nothing. Everyone can predict something, at least on a particular level. Even then, does the bible say that true prophets will be known by their knack at predicting the Oscars? What does the bible say? If you take your faith seriously, you would open your bible and find answers to those questions.

May the inerrant word of God, not predictions rule your life. Amen.

  1. Thank you for this article. I pray everyone gets the sarcasm. And for real prediction without salvific significance is nothing

  2. Thanks so much for this sobering article. I very well know Mbonye is a false teacher and that should really be emphasized. I believe on the contrary that the gift of prophecy still exists and the bible expressly talks about that, it is different from preaching.
    We need to take in the whole biblical truth not just what works for us and our theological backgrounds, the word of God isn’t a buffet.

    1. Thank you Michael, we can have differing views but that’s okay. The problem however is when these views threaten our salvation. Thank God that our views on prophecy don’t.

  3. This a well elaborate article. Thank you very much. I have seen and heard people that are well educated (through school) and do believe in the doctrine (for lack of a better word) of Mbonye. And I wonder how can someone so educated be good blind. It’s then that I realise its not about you education or exposure but how you intentionally seek to know and understand the truth of salvation and the one that brought it. I guess it’s upon us to keep praying and opening the truth to our lost brothers and sisters. Not many will understand the sarcasm in the article though. Clearly it’s for the knowledgeable.

    I have been following (not closely) your spiritual writings. And I hope we can meet someday for a chat. Thanks.

  4. I see some bias (siewed) writing! Well, may you elaborate on Paul’s wish that Prophecy is the gift to be desired most?
    For a prophet to be false, s/he must contradict with the written scripture. No where in your piece that you have indicated a contradiction, rather it’s lack of depth!(1 or 2) verses. Lastly, I know for sure that Prophecy is meant to Strengthen, encourage and or draw people to God through Jesus Christ. And this is exactly what Prophet Elvis has done. Forexample in the Oscars Prophecy, he begun by saying if I may paraphrase, ” most of the whollywood if not all is controlled by demonic entities. I do this to show you that God is above whollywood. But also, to show you who are in entertainment that you can dominate this industry with a touch of Jesus for his glory”! So, surely, why can’t you research fully and find the truth?

    1. You are mixing up issues here, there is no functional office of the prophet in the NT like it was in the OT, so you can’t determine whether my article is skewed or not because you lack basic understanding in that arena.

      Whatever you need to know I is in that article above.

  5. Great piece Nuwamanya. Great read. We should wake up and seek truth from the Bible for what it says, not for what we want it to say.

  6. Nothing really beats reading the word of God!! You are armed with an undying torch to to help light the path in the midst of such doctrines!! Very good article!

  7. I have a question for you, if John was the last Prophet sent by God why do we see Jesus saying I will (future tense) send you MY prophets… In Mathew 23:34

    The coming of the Lord is alwayspreceded by a prophetic move. You may have heard the phrase “the Spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus”

    Judgement like yours serves theoretical knowledge that persecutes, yes, persecutes those after experiential knowledge.

    If God did indeed send us a Prophet in our day and whether you believe this or not is entirely up to you, but if He did… If he gave him prophetic signs to accompany his message… Signs that intend to prove who He represents. Then let every man choose this day whether they’ll serve The God who sent the prophets or continue in their ways.

    If there’s a warning let’s listen for it, if there’s good news let’s receive with gladness. But this attitude of witch-hunting Aaaa Aaaaaaaaaàaaaa far be it from us.

    If you give half the truth it’s a great lie. You’ll end up like lot carried away into exile for not believing the Living God when He spoke through the mouth of His prophets.

    I am a son of Prophet Elvis Mbonye, His God is my God, I count him worthy of double honor.

    1. Thank you for reading, Elijah. I appreciate your humility, its humbling!

      The sense in which the word “prophecy” is used in the NT is different. You don’t have OT-like prophets after the coming of the Messiah. They are just not there. I hint on that slightly in the article above.

  8. my two cents…. Prophet Elvis Mbonye is a genuine man of God sent to usher in a prophetic dispensation to the Natiions. If all you see is the fancy clothes, beautiful things then i would say you are looking at the smaller picture. I am submitted under the grace of Prophet Elvis Mbonye and christian like you with an ‘honest’ opinion misleads others while character assassinating men of God. The God we serve is not one who is poor for He says silver and gold are his therefore his children should be able to access and enjoy this great wealth and prosperity among other spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ.

    You are wrong to claim that Prophet Elvis is the way for he has in no way stated such. feel free to visit http://www.prophetelvis.com and read the statement of faith.

    1. Roger, thanks for dropping by. You just confirmed my fears. Whatever you mean by “I am submitted under the grace of Prophet Elvis Mbonye…” My prayer is that God has his way.

      Grace and Peace.

  9. Thank God for this article, at last someone has come out to poke some holes on this Mbonye man. Like you have advised up there let people read their Bibles and understand cheeeeeeiii

    2 Peter 2:1-3 New International Version (NIV)
    False Teachers and Their Destruction
    2 But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3 In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

  10. Interesting submissions indeed…. If we are not bible students, usually the defense spirit over takes our reasoning and need to search for answers in the Word of God. Indeed, we need to yearn to hear from God ourselves and not another hearing on our behalf if we are to really grow spiritually in the Lord. What is it that those the Lord speaks to, do, to be able to hear Him speak, which we can’t do? If one says the Lord says…… why can’t people learn to confirm from God himself? The curtain in the temple was torn at Jesus’ crucifixion to give us direct access to the Holy of Holies. How come, some people still wish to remain behind the imaginary curtain…..LAZINESS IN SEEKING THE VOICE OF GOD PERSONALLY could possibly be the answer. Unfortunately, the spirit of laziness is not asleep which diverts us from searching for answers through God’s word….
    Children of God, we need to style up before judgement day harshly sorts people out…..

    1. Julia, I would not refer to it as laziness. I think its the absence of proper biblical teaching and preaching in the church backgrounds we come from. Coupled with this is the lack of discipleship programs to nurture us into grounded people after God. Paul makes this case when he writes to the Colossians 4:13-16 that “until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood,[e] to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, 14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. 15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.”

      That I think is the problem.

  11. Wooooow I haven’t read a beautiful message woven up in humor and sarcasm like this one.
    Very engaging.
    Beautifully written.
    He who the son has set free is free indeed.

  12. The end times are here, whatever was written in the scriptures as the signs are now manifesting. May the Good Lord help us to keep watch that we will not be swayed by such, and also by His Spirit convict those who are already there to see the truth and saved.

  13. We must mention this man called Mbony in our prayers at all times for God to to look down with pitty and forgive him….He is not alone…He is possessed with the Demonic spirit of divination..Acts 16

  14. A long read, but it never gets boring. You’re funny, you know your word, and i thank God that you keep pointing us back to it.

    Allow me however to DISAGREE with you on a few things. For the record, i don’t pray at Zoe. Been there once physically, and caught him a few times on Tv. So I’m independent.

    1. Prophecy has no place.

    The beauty of the new testament is not in doing away with the old, but in the fullfillment thereof. Christ dies so that he can accomplish everything the law could not. By separating old and new testament, you seem to say that prophecy holds no place in the life of a christian.
    But see, Prophecy is part of the 5 fold ministry. Prophets, evangelists, teachers, pastors and apostles. They all have a part to play in “the perfecting of the saints for the work of ministry and edifying the body of Christ”.
    ephesians 4:12.

    That statement is so deep i almost felt my spirit do a back flip. In layman’s language, to align the saints to divine purpose.
    Few christians, and this is a sad fact, ever hear God for themselves. Fewer still, actually know what God called them to do. Living lives of wasted potential.

    A prophet is necessary in a generation of disconnect. Yet this is also a problem, because the prophet should only confirm the things that are already affirmed in your spirit. But am not opening that can of worms right now.

    2. Touch not the Lord’s annointed. 1sam 26:11, 1 sam 24:10

    This here is tricky, but i learned it the hard way. God ALONE knows where a man stands with him. I cannot speak for the flamboyant lifestyle or predicting oscars. Who am I to judge another man’s servant? Romans 14:4. A man stands or falls before his God. Y’amanyi ne katonda we. If prophet Mbonye is a man of God, if God needs to deal with him on an issue, he will do it in his own way on his own time. He doesn’t need our help doing it.
    Ref Gal 6:1

    3. The Word and the spirit.

    I support you on advising people to attend churches pastored by seminary trained men/women of God.

    However

    That CAN sometimes be a painful limitation, and some have used it to shut out the working of the Spirit. The same can be said about the process of studying the word.

    Theologically, you can understand the word with the mind.
    Yet without the spirit, that is as far as you can go.

    I have studied the word with commentaries upon commentaries, yet it never compares to when the Spirit leads the study.

    Man, there is a way The word of God comes alive. The words leap off the page. He reveals the deep (bottomless) things (1cor 2:10).
    To read something and celebrate like somebody scored, not because you are a crazy person, but because of the weight therein.

    Christians hate reading the bible because to many it is a chore. With the Holy Spirit though, it is an experience.

    I pray that anyone who reads this, if they are to forget everything i’ve submitted, they catch THIS.

    1. Thank you Peter for your submission. You did it respectfully, for that I commend you.

      Here are a few things I would like to point out:

      1. Like I point out in my article, prophecy in the OT had an ultimate salvific purpose–in its coperate sense. But then, the secessionist/continuationist debate is not a hill am willing to die on. Since it is not a debate that will determine our justification before a perfect God, I am okay with everyone falling on either side. Fair game.

      2. As far as touching God’s annointed is concerned, I would not look at that way. I am a teacher of the God’s Word, part of what I do is confront skewed doctrine, not the person that habours it, but the doctrine. Sometimes it is too hard to separate a man from his slant doctrine but that is because he has made this ministry his identity and its face, instead of leaving those titles to Christ. My point is, when we say that “let us leave him and God would deal with him”, are we not neglecting our responsibility as disciples? With your view, we would not have any of the Corinthian letters, Galatians, Colossians, etc, because what they do–contextually–is counter wrong doctrine in the apostolic church.

      3. Seminary is for those who are called to ministry. Its fine for a layman to read their bible, I am not saying that they should go seminary in order to learn how to read their texts. What I am saying, however, is that teaching and preaching is a gift of the Spirit and those who are called are equipped. The 12 disciples were in Seminary with the greatest theologian of all time for three years. Paul talks about his time in Arabia after his conversion (Galatians 1), I believe God was teaching him. So, theological training is church tradition since the Apostolic time (even with the Levites in the OT), we should remember that.

      Grace and peace,
      -Mategyero

      1. Agreed on point 2. If you are elected as a teacher of the word, you (and i say this carefully), have the mandate to point out wrong doctrine, though not forgetting to walk in love. In such cases, I prefer Christ’s Mathew 18:15-20 process of restoration.

        Truth is, I agree with you on a lot of things, but cannot pronounce myself on them. The more aware of God’s mind you become, the more carefully you tread.

        Even In the world, a general cannot be tried by anyone below their rank.

        Looking Forward to your next article. I’d for example like to hear your take on Mathew 11:12

        1. Great, I will look into that. Thanks for the article idea. BTW, for further correspondences, you can shoot me an email: me(at)mategyero(dot)com (use the appropriate symbols as I am trying to avoid those bots that spam inboxes.

        1. Lol,I enjoyed reading the article and the submissions.I agree with Peter especially on his 1st and 3rd points i.e his views on the new testament prophet(I think you and I have kinda had a chat about this) and on the word and the spirit.
          P.S I want to be present when you guys talk about Mathew 11:12 🙂

          1. Yes, we have talked about that. I have given up on converting you! Peter wants to hear my position on Matthew 11:12, I don’t know how I can get to him, I have his email but he has not authorised me to send him messages through it, I guess I will do a write-up and have you and him come weigh in.

  15. I am so grateful to God that there are still people out there who still faithfully follow the Word of God. God bless you and give you more wisdom on how to reach people with His Word. How I pray for my brothers and sisters that have been blinded and whose consciences are sired, that one day they will know the true saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that they will know no other God other than the maker of heaven and earth and serve and honor Him and Him alone.

  16. The culture of dishonoring men of God has ruled the generations so much so that when one is honored, there is a short circuit among so many people. You have had them humiliated on social media year in year out but you never speak out. When they are honored, then the kingdom of darkness stirs up worldly men and even Christians to talk about it. Now since when did the church and the world agree on something against man? Who is missing what? Prophet Elvis would have been loved by the world if he was their own but no; the kingdom of darkness doesn’t love him .now also the church. I am not at liberty to cite examples but I am telling you, so many are missing it here. There is a thin line… We have a group of religious leaders like it was in the days of Jesus who have made an alliance with the Roman government in order to protect their influence on people. And all they are doing are national breakfasts. People have filled stadiums year in year out praying but no results. Then we have others just like Judas who betrayed what he knew as the anointing. Now the spirit of God says, a wake up call has come where judgement is beginning in the house of God.

    1. Everyone is calling the other a Pharisee and that is not helpful. My concern however is the doctrine behind this honour movement. You did not say anything about that.

      1. The church has for so long settled on the fringes of things and is content with merely arguing things. Now not to be drawn that side, I will ask you why you have the same opinion as the world has about the honor. If you get the answer, you will know where you stand. Because the one thing I know is that the world can never have the same opinion as the church concerning spiritual things.

        1. Mark, did you read the post? All of it? There are issues of a more serious nature that you could have addressed. I do not dwell on what honour is–that is just a title–but I like to talk about issues of theological importance. I don’t know how the world defines honour, and I don’t think in my article above I quote anyone from the world on what honour is.

  17. Thanks Mategyero for this insightful biblical scrutiny of the ” Man of God”. Those with eyes have seen & understood.

Any thoughts? Leave me a comment
