Modern Pentecostal Churches centre their preaching mainly on tithe and offering as well as financial breakthroughs.
On the other hand, the Seventh Day Adventists and the Jehovah’s Witnesses have put much emphasis on the study of the Bible, especially the books of prophecy such as Revelation and Daniel.
It is no wonder these two organisations have produced more literature on prophecy than any other Church around the world.
Hakainde Hichilema, who professes to be an Adventist, has on many occasions been seen breaking the Sabbath to do his political work and patronising many other Sunday churches obviously to win political support.
However, his recent remarks that Zambians must pray hard after August 11 elections because there will be an Armageddon is extremely alarming.
It is a well-known fact that Armageddon is the last war between Satan and the God’s angels. Does HH know this? I doubt because if he did, he would not say this when he was a signatory to the peace treaty organised by the church.
While Edgar Lungu is going round preaching peace and love, HH together with his millionaire friend GBM are busy preaching hate and violence.
I therefore, appeal to our dear HH not to confuse spiritual matters with worldly things.
In fact I don’t see any violence before, during and after the August elections because Zambians are peace lovers. I don’t see them changing government.
There is simply no mood for a revolution as it were in 1991 and 2011. Let HH go to Sabbath school and study the Bible. There will be no Armageddon in Zambia.
