The untimely demise of humorous KABA and the unbeknownst idiosyncratic prophesies

The sudden demise of KABA has taken the country by shock The sudden demise of KABA has taken the country by shock

I could not believe my eyes when KABA once took time off from his extremely busy schedule and humbly replied to my message, after complaining that he had deliberately refused to read my messages.

I complained: “KABA, I know you won’t read my messages, but that’s fine with me.”

But at about 21.9.20 pm on the same day, I opened my inbox and found a well-crafted response from KABA that eventually attached me to the gentleman’s programme till his untimely death.

He refused to take a rest after his working hours and replied to a stranger’s message. It was a hallmark of a well-mannered geezer!

KABA wrote: “Good evening K, Thank you very much for your mail. I'm grateful you find time to listen to my programme; it’s not deliberate not to read your message owing to the dozens of messages I do receive on each session I hold my programme but decided to take time to reply your message owing to the importance I attach to my listeners”.
Most grateful, have a pleasant evening
It’s all about Ghana, KABA”

It was, as a matter of fact, a humbling moment for me. I was indeed most grateful for his humility and excellent interpersonal skills.

And ever since KABA displayed such an unbelievable solicitude and humility, I never turned my back on his afternoon programmes.

So I was really depressed in spirits when I received the news of his sudden death. I could not hold back my tears. Indeed, I shed tears profusely to evince my illimitable heartbreak.

It became more painful when I incredibly listened and read the weird prophesies of the “Men of God”, who are claiming to have prophesied the demise of KABA a few months, but he failed to pay heed. How pathetic?

Unfortunately, false prophets are at work today, and command a multitude of truth seekers, many of whom lack knowledge, hence following the con-artists, who are probably resorting to necromancy, albeit masquerading as “Men of God”.

We hear day in and day out on how some truth seekers are being swindled and often maltreated by the same “Men of God” who claim to be leading the truth seekers to “Heaven”. Meanwhile the truth seekers are being “perished” for the lack of knowledge.

In my humble opinion, it is inconsequential on the part of individuals who are seeking to enter the Kingdom of God to veer from what the Bible really teaches and instead following the “Blind men” who will only lead them further into the “wilderness”.

Apparently, the so-called Men of God are claiming to be performing miracles in the name of Jehovah God to the amusement of their followers. But the question one may ask is: are those miracles really from God?

Nowadays, the people who called themselves Men of God are all over the place and are very powerful and successful, but does this mean they have been actually blessed by Jehovah God?

There is no doubt whatsoever that, false prophets are at work today, as the Bible makes us to understand. For example, Jer 14:14: “Then the LORD said unto me, the prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.”

Jeremiah 14:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

Let us again look at the following verses from the new testament; Mathew 24:11; And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. Mat 24:12 And because iniquity [lawlessness] shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

The fact of the matter is that the so-called men of God are motivated by money and nothing else! For we can verify this assertion from Micah 3:9 [NIV] “Hear this, you leaders of the house of Jacob, you rulers of the house of Israel, who despise justice and distort all that is right”; Micah 3:10 [NIV] who build Zion with bloodshed, and Jerusalem with wickedness. Micah 3:11 [NIV] Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money. Yet they lean upon the LORD and say, "Is not the LORD among us? No disaster will come upon us."

1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Unfortunately, however, the vast majority of truth seekers are needlessly following miracles instead of the truth and salvation, hence being fleeced by so-called men of God.

There is no denying or hiding the fact that false Prophets can sometimes perform Impressive Miracles That deceive their followers: Mat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

In fact, the teachings and idiosyncratic behaviour of the False Prophets should send clear warnings to the seekers of the truth. Nonetheless the vast majority of truth seekers lack the requisite knowledge to appraise “non-facts”.

It goes without saying that if the authorities do not come out with expedient measures to circumscribe the diddling of the False Prophets, the uncritical citizens will remain victims to the wolves in the sheep’s clothing.

I think it is about time the authorities halted the criminals who are using the “Bible” to swindle their unsuspecting followers for their own expansiveness.

In sum, please, you may keep fleecing your unsuspecting followers, but for God sake, leave KABA to rest in peace.
