Politics is an unclean game by its very nature. Those who mix religion with politics do so at their own peril. As one can see from the Scripture (Matthew 22:21), it would seem advisable to leave politics for the politicians and religion to the religious leaders. The scripture also warns of false prophets.
According to Revererd Belina, the TV show consisted of three scenes. The first scene was about Eritreaea, Tigray, Gondar and Walloo. They are blessed to become the industrial backbone of Ethiopia. Scene two dealt with Bale, Arsi, Shawa and Gojjam and the agricultural products they will be producing to feed the empire. In scene three, the Lord revealed to him that Harahge, Sidamo, Wallaga, Gamo Gofa and Illu Babba Boora will produce abundant fruits, tea, coffee and spice. In other words, Northern provinces will technologically develop but Oromos and others in the South will remain agricultural societies.
Watching this false prophesy on Youtube HERE and watching the reverend frequently referring to his notes, I could not help wondering if the God that revealed all this to him lacked the power to endow him with perfect memory to remember what He revealed to His “servant.” By his deed, Belina caused me doubt God’s power and almost led me astray for a moment. Then God, in his grace, helped me remember Jesus’s warning in Mathew 24:11. As a human being and a Lutheran, I felt insulted and betrayed. Insulted, because Rev. Belina took me for an imbecile. Betrayed, because such Political visions disguised as religious revelations by someone of Rev. Belina’s stature will reflect badly on the Lutheran Church.
As some one once said, "As spiritual adultery increases in the church, false prophets will flourish as highly sought after speakers, and as Christians accept more of these false teachings indiscriminately, many will fall away, believing in a phony "faith".
Have your say!
