God at Work Through the Internet in Africa

Ange Michel Pastor Terence Nkunzimana and Hilaire Nininahazwe in BujumburaI received a guest blog article yesterday afternoon from a person doing missions work in Africa.  At first I dismissed it because it doesn’t meet the some of the guidelines we had set.  It’s not as long as we would have liked, the grammar is a bit lacking, and it doesn’t go into a lot of specifics about how the Internet is being used.

But you know what?  Throughout history God has used lots of people who didn’t meet human guidelines – prostitutes, murderers, uneducated fishermen.  Maybe God can use a blog article that doesn’t meet my specs.

Here is the message I received…

Dear Brethren,

Thank you for your e-mail about missions. I began to serve God on the homepage www.ourchurch.com/member/h/Hilaire in November 2004.

Since this day I could reach more people with the message of the Evangelism of peace Jesus brought to us. In the beginning of 2005 I got many messages brethren from different countries especially from East and central Africa. I do not think, I could not have this opportunity easily without this medium.

Ange Michel Pastor Terence Nkunzimana and Hilaire Nininahazwe in BujumburaThrough this homepage the Lord has set up a living network that preaches the Evangelism of peace ‘Word of Peace and Reconciliation Ministries Network’.. We are present in Burundi and Rwanda and South Africa. We are also working together with brothers and Sisters from/in Congo (RDC). We are in touch with Brethren in Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. For one year, my brethren Wenceslas Ndayisenga and Pastor Fidel Ndikumwami visited Uganda. We also got visit, two preachers from Zambia came to Bujumbura. They did bring Bibles that was a big blessing for us.

This is for me a great moment to express my gratitude to you. All those contacts were possible through this possibility you grant me by giving me the possibility to be the owner of website. God bless you…

N.B I am Burundi native with a German passport. I am living in Germany since 15 years. I came to the Lord in this country.

God bless you

God is doing some awesome things in Africa these days.  While more and more people in Europe and the Americas are dismissing God out of foolish self-sufficiency, more and more people in Africa are embracing Jesus as savior.  It’s also amazing to me the impact that the Internet is having on missions work and the spreading of the Gospel in a continent where most people still do not have electricity in their homes.

I feel very Happy to know that these Missionaries got the Bibles and that finding God and Jesus gives them hope , love , understanding and most of all Comfort . The Spirit of the Lord once lead that part of the World . And during hard times ,killings ,war, voodoo , greed , these Brothers and Sisters found God .
    The Life that they have to live We can only Pray for them. The Law of their Lands are Scarery, Lawless,Unkind,Chopped Up, Brutal , and more . Some of these Africans have a hard life and surviorers . Now with God on their side once again , I feel a big Smile from up above and far away.

    Brothers and sisters, fellow ministers of the Lord continue in his vineyard and we shall the fulness of God in Africa . Africa is not the Dark continent it is the light continent , we are not developing nations . it our time to came from ashes to glorly from pit to the palace.

    Since I posted my testimony about “God at work through the Internet in Africa”, I have received tens of nice comments. God bless you.

    It is a fact; God has done something special in Africa. The Lord has poured His Spirit over there. Every day incredible events are taking place in Africa. Most of them are cases of repentance, deliverance and healing. Can you believe that people came home where I was living asking me to pray for them because they wanted to receive Jesus as their Lord and Saviour?

    People are looking for God; they really want to have a personal relationship with Him! Christians, pastors and evangelists are working hard, they walk on foot, do not eat enough etc. It surly didn’t happen for the first time, but there is no need to search long for an example (in Africa) of one who trusts in God according to Luke 14:25-26 or Matthew 6:33

    For a pastor or an evangelist to get the opportunity to surf in the Internet is alone a miracle!

    When I read messages from Pastor Mauza from Tanzania and brother Martin from Kenya; I understand very well what they mean. The Church of God in Africa really needs support. God has invested over there; we just need to be aware of the fact. We are even challenged: “If someone can do something and does not do it, he commits a sin” James 4:17. This Church is ready to send missionaries to the nations, in and out of the continent. As Pastor Amarjeet mentioned, many souls are in danger. Let us not loose our time.

    However, we have to be careful because Satan doesn’t sleep. Many false prophets are also at work! If someone fills he/she wants to work, help or serve God in Africa, it is very important to pray for Wisdom from God before he/she makes a mistake. Examine all spirits!

    God bless you

  12. After reading the testimony of Pastor Hilaire, I cried tears of joy knowing that our Lord Jesus Christ is doing a mighty work in Africa. It is indeed a great blessing to see people hunger for God to the point that they are willing to sit at the doorside to be ministered to. I pray that the Lord will continue to increase Pastor Hilaire in ministry and greatly anoint him to reach out to more and more people all over the world. It is "not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts" – Zech 4:6 KJV

    NET SIGN

    “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind!” (Mat 13:47).

    The teachings of Jesus Christ have been in parables in order the children of kingdom of God to understand and submit it. The parables of Jesus Christ have been the wise words that cause maturity to the corporate body of Christ (Church).

    The parable is wise word in which each generation gets her worthy revelation accordance the wisdom and comprehension from God.
    Unveiling of net will impart a light to clarify the kingdom of God that is like unto a net. A net is assembly of bonds, but all bonds cannot make net. There are specific and strong bonds that are fit to be linked and tied together in unity for net building.
    The revelation of bonds that are needed to gather together for net releasing has been given by Apostle Paul.

    “Endeavouring to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace” (Eph 4:3).

    To build unity is one of the Holy Spirit’s important roles. He leads us, but we have to be willing to be led and to do our part to keep the peace. We do that by focusing on God, not on ourselves.

    The power of net resides upon knot. The purpose of God is to restore the peace by using restored church. The lack of bond of peace in church has caused ungrowth and divisions. The dimension of peace will bring unto the church spiritual relationship and getting unshakable identity that is being called the children of God.

    “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God” (Matthew 5: 9).

    The bond of peace found in Holy Spirit (Rom 14: 17) is important concept that must be precisely defined, unveiled and manifested. This season comes to make the disciples and establishing a net linked by knot of the bonds of peace and perfectness. The mystery of parable of Kingdom likens unto a net is nothing, but peace impartation as maturity dimension in the Kingdom of God. Then net characterizes unity in peacemaking witty.

    “And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body, and be ye thankful” (Colossians 3: 14-15).

    “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (Galatians 5: 14).

    When we are not motivated by love, we become critical of others. We stop looking for god in them and see their faults. Soon the unity of believers is broken. When you begin to feel critical of someone, make a list of ht person’s positives qualities. If there are problems that need to be addressed, t better to confront in love that to gossip.

    “Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law” (Romans 13:8).

    Why love for others is called a debt? We are permanently in debt to Christ for the lavish love He has poured out on us. The only way we can even begin to repay this debt is by loving others in turn. Because Christ’s love will always be infinitely greater than ours, we will always have the obligation to lave our neighbours.

    “Now the end of commandment is charity out of pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:” (1Timothy 1: 5).

    Misunderstanding of peace mission has caused the Church to undergo worldly principalities and saying peace when there is no peace.

    “They have healed also the hurt of the daughter (Church) of my people slightly, saying, peace, when there is no peace” (Jeremiah 6: 14; 8:11).

    The important thing we need to know is that, the carnal ways cannot bring and establish the peace, because they are not ways and paths of God. It’s only God has prepared a provision of peace in His son Jesus Christ who is king of Salem (Heb 7: 2) from the beginning, but not policy or another physical manner.

    “The way of peace they know not, and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace” (Isaiah 59: 8).

    The policy and army can help to custody and to conduct earthly rule, but acts of bringing and establishing the peace passeth all understanding is about God and his ways. We are not making disrespect for political order. Bible portraying with precise light that all rules are from God; we need to pray for and obey them. But to some degree of understanding, we need to know that the peace given by Jesus is not likened of which given by world. Jesus’ peace makes our hearts being without troubled and afraid otherwise his peace is answer of all our contentment.

    “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14: 27).

    “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer: I have over come the world” (John 16: 33)

    A growth of church cannot take place in absence of peace. The peace is the purpose of God. So; it is the goal of church. The deposit of spiritual truth and gifts is able to break past and present limitation and to release fruitfulness in the church. Our mandate is to seek the peace and pursue it by using wisdom and authority of the highest realm of God.

    “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace” (James 3: 17- 18).

    True wisdom can be measured by the depth of a person’s character. Just as you can identify a tree by the type of fruit it produces, you can evaluate your wisdom by the way you act. Foolishness leads to disorder, but wisdom leads to peace and goodness. Are you tempted t escalate the conflict, pass on the gossip, or fan the fire of discord? Carefully, winsome speech and wise, loving words are the seeds of peace. God loves peacemakers. (Matthew 5:9)
    The peace will release us to be in spiritual relationship as net. Relationships based on bond of peace are to be open, honest, cooperative and of the highest integrity. When we grow and function together as a cluster there will be a release of new wine and blessing of God in a greater measure that passeth the individualistic an island mentality of doing things alone. We must understand that there is an impartation of God’s grace that comes through bond of peace and perfectness.

    “Thus saith the lord, as the new wine found in the cluster, and one saith, destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servant’s sakes, that I may not destroy them all.”(Isaiah 65: 8).

    RECONCILIATION MINISTRY – CROSS OF JESUS

    “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God” (1Corinthians 1: 18).

    The preaching of the cross has as revelation the power of God. Now we need to sail into Kingdom’s wisdom in order to disclose an action of the cross revealed as the power of God. Unveiling action of the cross gives us result and manifestation of what was secret. The revelation of cross is that we were reconciled with God through the blood of His Son. Then we have peace with God.

    “And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby” (Eph 2:16)

    The preaching of the cross is the power of God which brings the peace. The goal of Christ to the cross is to reconcile all things unto Himself and make peace through the blood of His cross.

    “And having make peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself, by him, I say whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven” (Colossians 1:20).

    “And through him to reconcile to himself all things whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross” (Colossians 1:20 INV)

    Reconcile is to cause a relationship to be harmonious, peaceful and righteous.
    Reconciliation is the heart of what must be done in this season. Growing and spiritual involvement cannot take place whether reconciliation is not clearly declared. The reconciliation is what disciples (them follow after the things which make for peace) do one for another.

    “Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.”(Matthew 5:23-24).

    “When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison” (Luke 12:58).

    Our belief needs to go beyond and to understand that reconciliation is very acceptable in God’s sight rather than to offer sacrifices.

    Reconciliation is what God has achieved in the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus, uniting sinners to a Holy God. Good and pure reconciliation is to reconcile first with God by Jesus Christ, second mutually.

    “For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life” (Romans 5:10).

    “And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” (2corinthians 5:18).

    Reconciliation is the duty of a sinner with respect to God – to accept his forgiveness and be in a right relationship.
    “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto him, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.”(2Corinthians 5:20)

    An ambassador is an official representative on behalf of one country to another. As believers, we are Christ’s ambassador of reconciliation, sent with his message of reconciliation to the world. An ambassador of reconciliation has an important responsibility.

    We need to know that person is creature of God. All things the creature can do in order to protect himself are temporal. True peace comes from the word of God by faith “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1).

    Establishment of the peace is to proclaim the gospel of peace. The peace will be established wherever the gospel of Christ is preached and believed. If we would like to see establishment of the peace on uttermost part of the earth, we need to stand up and bring the gospel of peace unto the nations. (Acts1:8).

    We now have peace with God, which may differ from peaceful feeling such as calmness and tranquillity. Peace with God means that we have been reconciled with Him. There is no more hostility between us, no sin blocking our relationship with Him. Peace with God is possible only because Jesus Christ paid the price for our sins through his death on the cross.

  20. Personally, I am very warm to put out the answer of God in my life. It is big destruction to human to seek peace way there is no peace. My assurance joy and message is that Jesus is our peace. This unshakable peace is received only in the Kingdom of God. I was very glad after hearing this message from my Brothers NININAHAZWE & Ndayisenga. Moreover our churhches miss growth. divisions and quarrel coome very soon, the reason is that the people will to still on the level of their beginning. It is better to soar unto other dimension of the Kingdom of God. Understanding and experiencing the mystery of peace of Christ in our Church will spring maturity and growth. All worldly government will never bring the peace even if we run behind them, why? Because the peace is covenant upon the Church of Christ. God is creator of every things and He has established peace as plan from beginning in Christ, so that we receive only the peace in the Lord. The world did not establish the provision of peace from starting, but it tried to consume what was boosted. Peace is ultimate blessing of God on earth through the Church.

    God bless his workers NININAHAZWE Hilaire & Ndayisenga Wenceslas manner they scrutinize and survey to bring out what God is doing and speaking upon the earth.

    Yours,

    Havyarimana Pascal
