Uganda: Museveni Dedicates Uganda to God
New Vision ^ | 9 October 2012 | Moses Mulondo

Posted on 10/09/2012 11:51:33 AM PDT by Alex Murphy

President Yoweri Museveni has repented his sins and the sins of Uganda as a nation in a move aimed at establishing Uganda as a God-fearing nation.

The President made this historic move at Mandela National stadium Namboole in the early morning of today (Tuesday) at 2:00am during national prayers for dedicating Uganda to God.

"I denounce witchcraft and satanic practices. I repent on behalf of Uganda. We confess our sins. We repent of the sins of shedding innocent blood, corruption, bribery, sexual immorality, drunkenness, rebellion, insubordination, tribalism and sectarianism," Museveni repented amidst ululations from the Christians.

The president dedicated Uganda to God to be his nation anchored on his principles and values.

The President, indicating that the next 50 years belong to the young generation, advised the young people to be God-fearing referring to the Biblical verse in Proverbs 9:10 which says, "The fear of God is beginning of wisdom."

For the young people who are still in school, he used Ecclesiastes 3:1 which says there is time for everything to advise them to concentrate on their books and abstain from sex.

For those who have completed studies, he advised them to look for more skills, jobs, and start families established on God's principles.

He advised the youth to keep fit through physical exercises and sports activities and to help their parents.

The prayers were organized by Uganda Jubilee Network, an association of Anglican, evangelical and Pentecostal churches.

The network, coordinated by Dr. James Magara of Intercessors for Uganda, has been guiding Christians to fast and pray for Uganda to be a God fearing nation in the next 50 years.

"The jubilee season provides us with an opportune time to seek and return to the Lord. It is a time for liberty, amnesty, family reunion, justice, debt release, economic emancipation, restoration and chance to reset the clock and start over again," Magara said.

The President's seeds of wisdom to the young people fell on the fertile soil which had been already cultivated by the church leaders.

Earlier, the church of Uganda archbishop elect, Stanley Ntagali, called upon the religious and political leaders to repent and put right what had gone wrong arguing that jubilee is about restitution and attaining God's eternal life after forgiveness.

Drawing from Exodus 4:22 where God said Israel is his first born son, Born Again Faith leader, Dr. Joseph Serwadda, prayed to God to make Uganda his second born son established on his values and principles of love, righteousness and justice.

Apostle Alex Mitala, who became the most captivating preacher, preached a radical message lambasting the young people over indecent dressing like miniskirts which expose their wickedness.

At the end of his speech, hundreds of youths came out and repented of indecent dressing which does not glorify God and recommitted their lives to God.

Rev. Simon Peter Emiau said no matter how many times Ugandans pray, God will not intervene in the affairs of our country without fulfilling the conditions in 2chronicles 7:14 of repenting and turning away from wicked ways.

Calling upon church leaders and Christians to repent, Apostle Charles Tumwine attributed the current high level of immorality in the country to the wickedness/darkness in the church arguing that what happens in a nation is usually a replica of the state of the church.

The believers were entertained by various choirs and artists who included American celebrated singer Judy Jacobs of Days of Elijah song and Pastor Wilson Bugembe who thrilled the gathering with his Biribabitya and Nangirira Omwaka Gwamukama Ogwemirembe.

The believers also prayed for Uganda's media and communication, arts and entertainment, the judiciary, parliament, cabinet, the president, local governments, churches, and the education sector that they will all be revived on God's principles and values of righteousness, love and justice.

Well, just darn.

My father left the Episcopal Church (along with most of the congregation...) and joined an Anglican Church, founded by ministers from Uganda. Now they are building a Cathedral! America's revival may yet come out of Africa! Best wishes and God bless them!

Proverbs 9:10 : "The fear of God is beginning of wisdom."

A wise man once said that a man who fears God shall gain wisdom and his wisdom shall endure. A man who has wisdom but does not fear God shall not endure and neither shall his wisdom.

I'd love to see a new president do exactly the same thing in January. The hissy fit howls from the ACLU would be music to my ears.

Dedicated to a true and different God than the one Obama serves. I wish them well.

The cynical part of me is saying “yeah....riiiiiight”. But I think that’s because the idea of anything like this happening in my frame of reference, the west, is so completely preposterous. Can you imagine one of our top political “leaders” doing this?

Not a chance.

This is great news! I have a close friend in Las Cruces, NM who is a retired PCA minister. He spent a lot of time in Uganda after they rid themselves of Amin and Obote (sp?). He told me that there was a large growing number of Believers who were reforming the country.

interestingly the CIA world fact book says
Roman Catholic 41.9%, Protestant 42% (Anglican 35.9%, Pentecostal 4.6%, Seventh-Day Adventist 1.5%), Muslim 12.1%, other 3.1%, none 0.9% (2002 census) - Seventh-Day Adventists clubbed as Protestants?

We’ll know more as time goes on of this man’s motives.

However, it wouldn’t be the first time that God has raised up very unexpected nations to do work that the powerful nations of the day refused to do — and then replaced the powerful nations of the day with those which were pious.

If any nation needs raising up, it is Uganda. The AIDS rate is catastrophic and I think the Islamists are attacking in parts of the country.
