The Phaneroo Devotion: The God We Know - 2

Apostle Grace Lubega

Acts 17:23(KJV); For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

Ancient Greece, before the birth of philosophy, lived by a mythological world view. They had gods like Zeus, Apollo, Hera and Athene among others. 

To have an “unknown God” in such a society was truly a paradox in spirituality.

How did such men with centuries steeped in mythology build an altar, offer sacrifices and worship an UNKNOWN God? To answer this question, one would have to look carefully at the just criticisms of the theology of the time by the likes of Xe-nophanes.

What the Greeks had done was to create gods in the image of men resembling mortals in character and disposition, prone to pettiness and revenge. They created gods in their likeness and gave them human egos and human character attributes.

God could only be unknown to such people if He was unknown in CHARACTER and PERSONALITY

It is a tragedy of the faith; that the Church today, though centuries away from the men at Areopagus, is still close to them in ignorance of the God they claim to worship. 

Men know He exists but are far from the knowledge of His character and personality: the God of love, mercy, kindness and unending compassion. 

For example, when men fall ill and our pulpits declare that it is the will of God, it is because He is worshipped yet unknown. Unknown in character, unknown in personality.

When failure follows some like a dark shadow, and our pulpits proclaim that God willed so, it is because the God worshipped is still unknown. Unknown in character and nature.

He says in Daniel 11:32 that those that know their God shall do exploits. Healing is an exploit and as such a testimony to the God we know. Success is an exploit and a testimony to the God we know. Growth is an exploit and a testimony to the God we know.

God is a good God! In Him is no shadow of turning. It is time our pulpits denounced the unknown God and gave allegiance to the Good God, the God we know!

Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Daniel  11:32, 1 Corinthians 2:10

GOLDEN NUGGET: When failure follows some like a dark shadow, and our pulpits proclaim that God willed so, it is because the God worshipped is still unknown. Unknown in character and nature.

PRAYER: My loving Father, I know You. I know what You have done and what You can do. I know Your goodness and Your everlasting kindness. I do not see You through the eyes of ignorance but the eyes of illumination because my life is a testimony of Your grace, mercy and kindness. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

KATONDA GWETUMANYI II

Omutume Grace Lubega

Ebikolwa by’Abatume 17:23(KJV); Kubanga bwe mbadde mpita ne ntunuulira bye musinza, era ne nsanga ekyoto ekiwandiikiddwako nti KYA KATONDA ATAMANYIKIDDWA. Kale kye musinza nga temukitegeera nze kye mbabuulira.

Abayonaani ab’edda ababaawo nga filosofia tannaba kuleetebwa, baatambuzanga obulamu n’endaba esinziira ku njigiriza y’okugereesa (Mythology). Baalina bakatonda nga Zeusi ne Apollo, Ela ne Asene ne Elakosi n’abalala.

Okuba ne “Katonda atamanyikiddwa” mu bantu ng’abo ddala kwali kutabulwa mu by’omwoyo.

Abantu ng’abo abaali mu byasa ebyannyikibwa ennyo mu njigiriza z’okugereesa, baazimba batya ekyoto, baawaayo batya saddaaka era baasinza batya Katonda ATAMANYIKIDDWA? Okuddamu ekibuuzo kino, omuntu alina okutunula n’obwegendereza mu kwekaanya okutuufu okw’enjigiriza y’eddiini okwali mu biseera eby’abantu abaanoonyerezanga ku Katonda n’enzikiriza z’amadiini, okw’abasajja nga Xe-nophanes

Abayonaani kye baali bakoze kwe kutondawo bakatonda mu kifaananyi ky’abantu ababulijjo mu neeyisa ne mu mbeera z’obuntu, abaali basobola n’okunyiiga olw’obusonga obutono era n’okuwoolera. Baatonda bakatonda mu ngeri yabwe ne babawa ekiruyi ky’abantu n’eneeyisa z’abantu.

Katonda mu butuufu yali asobola obutamanyibwa bantu ng’abo bw’aba yali tamanyikiddwa mu neeyisa wamu n’ekikula kye.

Kitalo era nga kiswaza enzikiriza nti Ekkanisa olwaleero yadde nga eri ebyasa bingi mu maaso okuva abantu abaali e Aleyopagaayo webabeerawo, ekyali kumpi nabo mu ndowooza ey’obutamanya bwa Katonda gwe bagamba okusinza.

Abantu bamanyi nti Gyali naye bali wala okuva eri okutegeera kw’eneeyisa n’ekikula kye: Nga Katonda ow’okwagala, ow’okusaasira, ow’ekisa era ow’obulungi obutakoma.

Eky’okulabirako, abantu bwe balwala kyokka obutuuti bwaffe ne bulangirira nti kwagala kwa Katonda bbo okulwala,  kiri bwe kityo kubanga Katonda asinzibwa naye nga tamanyikiddwa.Tamanyikiddwa mu neeyisa saako n’ekikula kye.

Okulemererwa bwe kugoberera omuntu nga ekisiikirize eky’ekizikiza nate ebituuti byaffe ne birangirira nti Katonda bw’ayagadde, kiri bwe kityo kubanga asinzibwa kyokka nga tamanyikiddwa.Tamanyikiddwa mu neeyisa, tamanyikiddwa kikula kye.

Ayogera mu Danyeri 11:32 nti abo abamanyi Katonda wabwe balikola eby’obuzira. Okuwonya  kya buzira era ku lwakwo, bujulizi eri Katonda gwetumanyi. Obuwanguzi kya buzira era bujulizi eri Katonda gwetumanyi. Okweyongerako kya buzira era bujulizi eri Katonda gwetumaanyi.

Katonda ye Katonda omulungi! Mu Ye temuli kisiikirize ky’akukyuka. Kekaseera obutuuti bwaffe bwegaane katonda atamanyikiddwa era bweweeyo okuweereza Katonda omulungi, Katonda gwetumaanyi!

Alleluya!

YONGERA OSOME: Danyeri 11:32,1 Abakkolinso 2:10

AKASUMBI KA ZAABU: Okulemererwa bwe kugoberera omuntu nga ekisiikirize eky’ekizikiza nate ebituuti byaffe ne birangirira nti Katonda bw’ayagadde, kiri bwe kityo kubanga asinzibwa kyokka nga tamanyikiddwa.Tamanyikiddwa mu neeyisa, tamanyikiddwa kikula kye.

ESSAALA: Kitange omwagalwa, nkumanyi. Mmanyi kki ky’okoze era ky’osobola okukola. Mmanyi obulungi bwo era n’okusaasira kwo okw’olubeerera. Sikulabira okuyita mu maaso g’obutamanya naye mu maaso g’okumulisibwa kubanga obulamu bwange bujulizi bwa kisa Kyo, kusaasira Kwo, n’obulungi Bwo .Mu linnya erya, Yesu, Amiina.

RUHANGA OU TURIKUMANYA II

Entumwa Grace Lubega

Ebyakozirwe Entumwa 17:23 Ahakuba ku mbaire nimpingura, naareeba ebi murikuramya, naashanga eitambiro erihandiikirweho ngu, N’ERYA RUHANGA OTARIKUMANYWA. Haza mbwenu eki muramya
nk’ekitarikumanywa, nikyo ndikwenda kubagambira.

Abagriika abaira, abashomi abakuru batakabaireho, bakaba baikiririza omu migyenzo. Bakaba baine ba Ruhanga nka Zeusi na Apollo, Ela na Asene n’Elakosi n’abandi.

Kugira Ruhanga “otarikumanywa” omu nsi egyo kikaba kiri okutabura omu by’omwoyo.

Abantu aba n’emyaka y’emigyenzo egi yoona bakaba bombeka bata eitambiro, bakahayo ebitambo kandi bakaramya Ruhanga ou batarikumanya? Kugarukamu Ekibuuzo eki, omuntu naba aine kureeba ebirikuhakanisa emishomo y’amazima y’ediini y’obwiire obw’abashaija nka Xe-nophanes.

Eki Abagriika bakozire kukaba kuri okuhanga ba ruhanga omu muringo nk’ogwa abantu ababuriijo omu micwe, ababaire nibabaasa kwiitwa ekiniga bakahoora. Bakahanga ba ruhanga omu kishani kyaabo babaha emicwe nk’ey’abantu.

Ruhanga akaba naija kubura kumanywa abantu aba kuri nogira ngu akaba atarikumanywa omu MICWE n’OBUNTU.

Eky’obusaasi, n’ekizibu omu nyikiriza kushanga ngu ekanisa erizooba ekiri nkabo omu butamanya Ruhanga ou barikugira ngu nibaramya n’obu emyaka mingi erabireho.

Abantu nibamanya ngu ariho kwonka bari hare n’okumanya kw’emicwe n’obuntu bwe: Ruhanga wa rukundo, ow’okusasira, ow’embabazi n’oburungi obutahwaho.

Eky’okureeberaho, abantu ku barikurwara rero ababurizi b’engiri baitu bakagira ngu n’okukunda kwa Ruhanga, nah’abwokuba naramibwa kwonka atarikumanywa. Tarikumanywa omu micwe, n’obuntu.

Okuremwa ku kurikukuratira abamwe nk’ekiminyiminyi omu mwirima rero ababurizi b’engiri baitu bakagira ngu Ruhanga akikunzire, nah’abwokuba naramibwa kwonka atarikumanywa. Tarikumanywa omu micwe, n’obuntu.

Nagira omu Danieli 11:32 ati abantu abarikumanya Ruhanga waabo baryahama, bakore eby’obumanzi.
Okukira n’ekyobumanzi kandi n’obujurizi ahari Ruhanga ou turikumanya. Okukura n’ekyobumanzi kandi n’obujurizi ahari Ruhanga ou turikumanya.

Ruhanga ni Ruhanga murungi! Tahindahinduka na kakye, n’obu kwakuba okugira ekicuucu ekireetwa okuhinduka. Obwiire buhikire obu amatambiro gaitu gashemereire kwanga Ruhanga otarikumanywa rero gakaramya Ruhanga omurungi, Ruhanga ou turikumanya!

Hallelujah!

SHOMA NEEBI: Danieli 11:32, 1 Abakorinso 2:10

EZAABU: Abantu abarikumanya Ruhanga waabo baryahama, bakore eby’obumanzi. Okukira n’ekyobumanzi kandi n’obujurizi ahari Ruhanga ou turikumanya. Okukura n’ekyobumanzi kandi n’obujurizi ahari Ruhanga ou turikumanya.

OKUSHABA: Taata omukundwa, ninkumanya. Nimanya ebi okozire n’ebi orikubaasa kukora. Nimanya oburungi bwaawe n’embabazi zaawe ezitahwaho. Tindikukureeba n’amaisho g’obutamanya kureka n’amaisho g’ekitangara ahabw’okuba amagara gangye n’obujurizi bw’embabazi zaawe. Omu eiziina rya Yesu, Amiina.
