What is happening to our favorite gospel artistes ? top comedian Churchill asked a week ago. On the same question I bring my question of what is happening to the gospel ministry as I usually call it.
Did the artistes fall into one big trap all at once or is it just an attack by the evil one on the body of Christ ?
Recently we have heard different stories of gospel artistes trending on various newsrooms and its quite sad to see such content being aired of gospel artistes whom thousands look up to. Why now or why is it hitting from one gospel artiste to the next ?
Who is happy when all these is happening ? Am not. Because if I am then what happens to the thousands of followers that had a little hope about Christ because of these artistes. It is a battle of different spirits at this moment and one person who is rejoicing is the devil as our Mighty GOD can not be happy when he see’s his children fall. But there is hope
Shiru Wa GP was one of the artistes that was affected last year. She gave birth two twins and barely a month after giving birth she lost one of the babies with the hospital bill amounting to 3 million shillings at one time. This was a hard task for Shiru Wa GP who had sold most of her personal effects to cover the hospital bill that was outstanding. But there was hope.
A few months later Betty Bayo’s story came up. Her now claimed husband was not the man many would believe in. He was allegedly using GOD’s word to get funds from people and the famous 310 Kanyari popped up. Everyone was going 310 on social media with all kinds of memes being photo shopped. But there is hope
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
We thought that was over but no sooner had we started the year than our sister Gloria Muliro walked out of her marriage because she was going through a lot in her marriage. The husband and friend she was looking up to had changed and now she is seeking for peace of mind as we pray that they reconcile sooner if GOD wishes to. I never took any side to support Gloria or Her husband because I know the reason why they got married, was not for personal interests but for GOD. But there is hope.
2 weeks after Gloria Muliro’s story now its Rose Muhando being accused of committing abortion of her 7 old month baby and now investigations are being done to know if this story is true or not. Whether she did it or not its quite sad to see that happening to one of the biggest artistes in East Africa whom many followers are looking up to. But there is hope.
The stories are endless and some are not mentioned.
The same happened to me once as I was battling some great temptations as a christian and lucky for me my story never came out like for our top artistes.
Unlike for me and you who make mistakes behind the scenes an artiste’s life is not private. They are public figures and represent the body of Christ in their ministry and everyone expects them to be perfect.
Artistes are facing big battles in life and we should pray and hope that the body of Christ shall stand out when the devil comes to prey.
It’s not easy for them and I wouldn’t want to join the group that sits out there and laughs when Gloria Muliro is breaking up with her husband or when Betty Bayo is fighting for her name because of Kanyari or Rose Muhando struggling with abortion stories.
I will stand up and pray for them rather than condemn them as when they fall so many other souls lose hope in GOD and I wouldn’t want to be part of that.
What about you ?
1 Thessalonians 5:11
who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him.11Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.
I will stand and pray for the body of Christ.
