Effecting a citizen's arrest on Constable Mayaya

Asked what Museyamwa Bakery does, six year-old Farai told his mother that "pane EcoCash", the money sending and receiving service offered by mobile telecoms operator Econet.

"Good!", mother was in agreement. "But they specialize in baking products like bread, buns, scones, and cakes, just like the one we ordered there for your last birthday".

Enterprises have their area of speciality and despite offering services like EcoCash and TeleCash to salvage their operations and line of business in an economy like Zimbabwe's, the earlier the better kindergarteners, muchmore, adults, are educated that minors are not majored on.

Yes, it is okay for novelist Shimmer Chinodya to suggest that the milkman does not sell milk only. But selling that particular dairy product is what gives him his name.

The Holy Spirit - God's very own Spirit - a portion of the creator himself, sent from heaven to a repented and baptized individual's heart, is what makes a person a Christian. Never mind the ratio of such an endangered species to that of church-goers and ordinary church members, "If any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His."(Romans 8 verse 9)

In the sermon "One In A Million" an international evangelist quite correctly points out how only Caleb and Joshua, minus the great Moses and two million other Israelites who set for Canaan from Egypt, made it to the land of milk and honey. "Many are called but a few chosen" (Matthew 20 verse 16)

Performing miracles, healing those with HIV and cancer, releasing material blessings upon those bound by poverty etc, does not make you a Christian, although miracles automatically follow "them that believe" according to Mark in the last chapter of his account of Jesus' gospel.

A Christian believes and acts on every word of God, simple.

"Christian" at first was a derogatory term given to those whose behaviour and way of life in Antioch resembled Jesus Christ. If you were to be accused of being a Christian today, a good prosecutor would seek to know whether you believed every word of God, as well as acted upon it, for indeed hearers and speakers of it, who are not doers, will be found "not guilty".

Here now is the tricky part in this Matthew 24 generation where the "spirits are so close that it would deceive the elect if it were possible".

If a demon asks for a favour from God, as long as that request is in accordance with His Word, the request will be granted to that hell-bound and eternally lost spirit. The rain falls on the just and unjust.

A lying spirit (demon) once sought permission to go and enter into 400 well-known prophets of repute plus Zedekiah, the most prominent among them, and God granted the request.(1 Kings 22 verse 9 through to 37)

Now if that lying spirit today claims to be a Christian because it asked (same as 'prayed') for something, and God granted it, and will go on to mention that it is a candidate of the rapturing of the heaven-bound saints, you will agree with me that it will be "sick" and dreaming for its end is in the lake of fire.

People genuinely healed of HIV and AIDS, the blind whose eyes are opened, those who lacked and are now cruising in the latest posh vehicles while staying in castles, might also go to hell depending on whether they were born of the Spirit, "for that which is born of flesh is flesh, and that which is born of Spirit is Spirit". Not because your prayers were answered or you performed miracles.

"Many will come to me and say, Lord have I not cast out demons in your name (richitobuda!) but I will say unto them, depart from me you that work iniquity." See Matthew 7 verse 22-3.

Confusing, isn't it? That's but part of a script, written, produced, and directed by Jesus Christ.

In this miracle craze generation, the false anointed must call fire from heaven, and flames must indeed start falling in order for that portion of Revelations to be fulfilled.

I find it absurd for someone to seek a spiritual church to belong to on the basis that "big" miracles (only, minus the full Word) are manifest in that ministry when Jesus Christ himself told us that a "wicked and adulterous generation seeks after signs."

The adulterous acts and wickedness of our society as daily chronicled in H-Metro, B-Metro, Nhasi muGweru and other media platforms, go hand-in-hand with an equally miracle-seeking, church-going, religious generation of self-professing Christians who do not have the Holy Ghost in their hearts.

Pentecost is not a name given to denominations with particular beliefs, it is an experience, a very personal one, with that very God who created the heavens and the earth.

It is unfortunate and regrettable that vulnerable "spiritual children" are being taught (and are passing with flying colours) how to have mountain-moving faith, then go on to perform record-breaking GENUINE miracles despite being hell-bound.

"Seek ye first the kingdom of heaven, and the rest (miracles, healing, riches etc) shall be added unto you, says Matthew 6 verse 33

The greatest miracle that ever happened to someone occurred in the heart when he or she was born again and converted.

The Ziya Performing Arts character of Constable Mayaya in Sabhuku Vharazipi 2 could certify or "clear" cattle as not stolen and solve disputes in the community just like any good rural cop could do, but as long as he kept on taking bribes, he remained a rogue element of the police force.

That money sending agency you operate Museyamwa, does n
ot make you a baker. Those scientifically proven miracles you are performing, prophet of profit, do not make you a Christian and guarantee you citizenship in New Jerusalem.

Christians believe every Word, not major on a minor, and are sealed with the Holy Ghost unto the day of their redemption (Ephesians 4 verse 30)

Now, you give me your force number Constable Mayaya. By the power vested in me as a citizen of this country, I am effecting a citizen's arrest on you! He that hath an ear, let him hear.
