This is a strong word, but it is for a strong reason.
After our hearing and watching our honorable leaders
implicated in rape & corruption, the striping of women
such like events in Kenya, on our media & social media.
My heart sinks and cries I’m at a loss of words.
How, why, what is going on, I don’t know how to respond or react.
I mean really how does one deal with such.
Kenya has generally been known as a peaceful nation with very
hospitable people. Then smack in your face this perversity.
So I ask myself what is going on, why all this madness.
Some say its poverty, others unemployment, and such like things.
First I think Kenyans we imitate without questioning and this is dangerous.
We copy what others are doing, without a second thought if its good for us.
And in so doing, I say we have become a perverse people.
We tolerate and almost celebrate waywardness, what is wrong & corrupt
& this has become a cancer that’s now malignant.
We are wicked, corrupt and reject what is good,
right, proper and in order. We need to change our ways
Our tolerance is good to a certain extent but we cannot tolerate
perversity in whatever form it presents itself.
Then I asked why are we like so? What is causing this
perversity to emanate and emerge?
What we see is just evidence of what we have inside of us.
Is society crying out or reaching out for help?
Where did we go wrong that we have become such?
How do we reroute ourselves and head in the right way?
Being perverted is not just sexual as many may think.
Being perverted is being against what is good,
right, proper and in order. That sums up how we live.
Kenyans we are so against order and what is right
like the plague, hence we carry a curse.
Here is what Solomon tells us about perversity
Pro 11:19-20 – As righteousness leads to life, So he who pursues
evil pursues it to his own death. Those who are of a perverse heart
are an abomination to the LORD.
Pro 14:2 – He who walks in his uprightness fears the LORD,
But he who is perverse in his ways despises God.
So what happens to those who are perverse, what does God do to such?
Deu 32:20 – And He said: I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end will be,
For they are a perverse generation, Children in whom is no faith.
Deu 32:23 – I will heap disasters on them; I will spend My arrows on them.
Deu 32:25 – The sword shall destroy outside; there shall be terror within
For the young man and virgin, the nursing child with the man of gray hairs.
I think we can see all these happening to us as we speak.
We are terrified within, fearful and feeling hopeless.
My answer to all this, the fear of God is what we need.
As Solomon the wisest man who lived says;
Pro 29:25 – The fear of man brings a snare,
But whoever trusts in the LORD shall be safe.
Ecc 12:13- Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God, and keep his commandments:
for this is the whole duty of man.
Oh Lord help us to Change our ways and
Help us to stop idolizing men, politics,
money and material things. Lord help us to
fear your wrath and Holiness.
In Jesus name I pray Amen
