ALAN WENYIKA, OPINION
Now there is a sick person or funeral everywhere in Zimbabwe…
But given that many Zimbabweans love to spend their idle time mocking the God of the Bible in public and showing one another how much they hate Him, maybe their leaders should also build them a larger statue of their beloved and revered spirit medium, Nehanda Nyakasikana, and proceed to decree three months of national prayer and fasting to all their favourite gods which they love to worship through their so-called ancestral spirits.
Maybe it will end Zimbabwe’s fantago dance with a mysterious virus and its donated medicines that are now burning every corner of the country.
And having complied with all virus protocols in fighting the mysterious flu, and leading other African nations in taking up every donated medicine from anywhere, pumping them by hook or by crook into the healthy bodies of scared Zimbabweans, their leaders should therefore not have any trouble with the relatively easier job of building a larger statue to Nehanda Nyakasikana and rallying everyone to observe 90 days of prayer and fasting to their dead ancestors and gods.
Maybe this will pave a shortcut route for the current nightmare to come to its conclusion.
Who will tell them the truth when they tell lies about the true God, Jehovah, saying to one another: “A God who would sentence you to an eternity of fire for not believing in him, yet refuses to provide unambiguous, tangible evidence of his existence is not a God, he is a myth?”
Who will show them that the God of the Bible does not punish anyone with eternal fire for not believing in Him and that the very doctrine of eternal torment in a hellfire is one of the greatest myths of Christendom and has nothing to do with the true God?
Will their hearts understand that the God of the Bible clearly reveals Himself in all His intelligent works, but only to those who care to notice?
When they draw their wild pictures of what they believe the true God and His Son look like, with crosses and halos in every image, they conveniently neglect to check with the Bible to confirm if what they are drawing is the truth.
Because their rage and pride have given them a spiritual blindness that has no cure whatsoever, unless they begin to humble themselves, they will never understand that Jehovah is worshipped only with His spirit and truth, and not with physical images of worship such as crosses, crowns and statues, as depicted in their false presentations of Him and His Son.
Meanwhile, the country continues to burn, and all the tears of grief cannot stop the burning and irreplaceable losses of ordinary breadwinners and high ranking officials alike.
Even with a brand new statue to Nehanda Nyakasikana in place, a level 4 lockdown and closed schools, and with the promulgation and constant review of prohibitive fines for not wearing a facemask in public, and regardless of 20 years jail time for anyone that shall be caught saying a falsehood about the ravaging virus and its controversial medicines, the devastation in the country is continuing unabated.
A larger statue of Nehanda Nyakasikana is now a most definite necessity for the good of everyone who hates the true God, the God of the Bible. And here is the reason:
“Look! Jehovah is emptying the land and making it desolate.
He turns it upside down and scatters its inhabitants.
“It will be the same for everyone:
The people as well as the priest,
The servant and his master,
The servant and her mistress,
The buyer and the seller,
The lender and the borrower,
The creditor and the debtor.
The land will be completely emptied;
It will be completely plundered,
For Jehovah has spoken this word.” – [Isaiah 24:1-3]
Saka wotoona kuti woita sei.
Maybe three months of continuous prayer and fasting will stop the ravaging virus in its tracks and save the day.
