TIME has come for Zambians to stop people who are using witchcraft for political purposes, says Nevers Mumba.
Mumba, president of the MMD, yesterday said there were demonic forces that have been unleashed on Zambia that was causing disturbances.
He said Zambians have prayed over the years to break the spirit of witchcraft which had dominated national politics.
Mumba said the gassing and riots in Lusaka compounds were not a battle for the soldiers or the police to win but with prayers.
He said the answer to the challenges Zambians were facing lies in the power of Christ as Zambia had been proclaimed as a Christian nation.
“Now that the powers of darkness are being exposed, it is the role of God’s people to declare a solemn assembly and totally free Zambia from the jaws of demonic forces and free it to start to enjoy the benefits of a truly Christian Nation,” Mumba said.
“Over the past four weeks, Zambia has been experiencing major spiritual activities. Our towns, our streets and our homes have been overwhelmed by ritual killings, therianthropy, (ability of humans metamorphose into other animals by means of shapeshifting). During this time, we have also experienced a heightened prayer culture by many families.”
He said people should not blame the police for failing to protect them from the ritual killers on the loose.
Mumba appealed to all Zambians not to take the law in their own hands but to help the police by handing over a suspected gasser to the law enforcers.
“To all Zambians, I say, let us not join the ritual killers by starting to kill each other. This is exactly what the witches want to achieve – to create uncontrolled anger and initiate a movement of blood shedding across the nation. No Zambian should torch another Zambian. No Zambian should axe another Zambian. We must stop to take the law in our own hands. We shall become part of the ritual killers ourselves,” he said.
“Instead, if we can arrest the suspects, let us take them to the police station for a proper judicial process. On a more important note, the battle before us is a spiritual battle which the police with their guns cannot win. This battle can only be won Spirit against spirit. We have to invoke the power of the blood of Jesus against the power of the blood they are shedding.”
Mumba quoted the book Ephesians 6:12 that reads “ We do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in the high places….”
He said to defeat the forces that were afflicting innocent people in Zambia, people must employ the shed blood of Jesus.
“Time has come to build an altar and allow a show down between the God of Elijah and the gods of Baal. (2Kings 1:10). I call on every believer in Zambia, regardless of denomination, to join in this great spiritual show down between the gods of those who continue to use witchcraft for political purposes and those who trust in the completed work of Christ,” Mumba said.
He called upon Zambians to pray against the forces of darkness that were roving on Zambia to be disempowered.
Mumba said Zambia shall only be free and saved when it cleanses self from the powers of darkness.
“I call on the body of Christ to a day of prayer and fasting on Sunday 16th February 2020. Those who believe we can stop this evil once and for all, we shall pray and fast on that day as a nation and conduct Holy Communion in our homes across the nation at 18:00 hrs concurrently and break the spell that has been cast upon this nation,” said Mumba.
“I therefore proclaim a solemn assembly for Sunday 16th February 2020 from 6:00hrs to 18:00hrs. Holy Communion shall be simultaneously taken at 18:00hrs across the nation.”
