I have been sitting here trying to find my words since the October 1st killings in Southern Cameroon. Ten months ago I thought the Government of Cameroon will act differently, how wrong was it to think the best of them!
A good number of Southern Cameroonians now see themselves like Israelites in Egypt under Pharaoh’s rule. Now assuming we are slaves in our own land, let’s take a look at how the Israelites got their deliverance.
Pharaoh did not let the Israelite go at Moses’ first word. In fact, after the first encounter with Pharaoh life became worst for the Israelite. Exodus 5:2 No slave master want to let go of his slave.
Then came the plagues, one will think Pharaoh will release the people after the first, second or third affliction. Sadly, no, it had to take the death of all firstborn in Egypt, including Pharaoh’s firstborn before he could let the people go. Exodus 12:29-30 Even after letting them go, he, later on, tried to bring them back, but there was a red sea ready to sort his troops out.
Can you imagine if this had to take place in Cameroon? All those government officials will be singing a different tune today. Let’s cry out to the Lord to come to our aid. We need a greater power. Moses’s snake swallowed up all the snakes of the Egyptian magicians! We need that kind of manifestation. It is called operating in the supernatural,
Do you know it is possible for those BIRs to kill each other instead of gunning down innocent citizens? It has happened before that God set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir who had come against Judah. The people had a Jehoshaphat for a king; a man who feared God, a man who took delight in the ways of the LORD 2Chronicles 17:4-6. You can read more about Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 17-20
He himself sought God and prayed here is an excerpt of his prayer “… O our God, wilt thou not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee”20:12.
He proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah 20:3 All Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives and their children. And God did answer they didn’t have to fight but they sang and God did the rest. They returned with spoils of battle.
It is possible that our enemies come against us in one direction and flee in seven ways Deuteronomy 28:7. Only if we can trust and obey the LORD.
Thanks to the supernatural, giant Goliath was brought down by little David. 1 Samuel 17:49
The walls of Jericho came crumbling down not by strength of the Israelites but by the praise and sound of the trumpet.
I am no political analyst, I won’t delve into matters too hard for me to understand. But this much I know, the God of the Bible is still alive today. If he did it before, He can do it again. Where are the prophets of our time? Where are the men of God in the land?
Any leader in the struggle must recognize we are dealing with high principalities and if you must overcome them then you better come with a higher power.
We can’t win this struggle with bees and fetishes! And at this point, I don’t see the UN coming to our aid either. Propaganda will only lead more youths to early graves. What choice do we have then?
Like Jehoshaphat this should be our prayer:
O, LORD, we have no might against this great company that cometh against us, neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.
God help the people of Southern Cameroon.
