In a sermon last weekend at the Blesing Centre where United Party for National Development president Hakainde Hichilema attended, Imakando said the country was faced with the problem of corruption. He urged congregants to denounce corruption, saying it was everywhere and stinking.
“Today we have a problem in this country, a problem of corruption. It stinks, it’s everywhere and when you ask, they will tell that everybody is doing it. It’s now being institutionalized. We need to stand up for what is right, say no to corruption, denounce it and expose it. It’s better to be poor than to gain riches out of corruption. Do you know that the bible says ill-gotten wealth will not last?”
Imakando asked the congregation.
He further urged the Church to embrace the spirit of taking over just like Caleb, one of the spiritual giants in the Bible who entered the Promised Land.
“I am speaking to you on a message titled the spirit of taking over. Caleb is one of the spiritual giants in the Bible who entered the Promised Land, the other was Joshua. Caleb has a taking over spirit. Go and take over, it is your time to take over,”
Bishop Imakando said.
He earlier prayed for Hichilema and his entourage and asked God to give him the wisdom and that He orders his steps together with all those that surrounded him.
“…We ask that you order his steps and Father we pray for all those that surround him. Let your will be done in Zambia. We also remember our President [Edgar Lungu] that you also bless him, that you will guide him and that he will fear you and do what is right in the land,”
prayed Bishop Imakando.
“We also pray for all opposition leaders that Father you will give them direction, that you will counsel them in the way they should go. Father we pray for the Laws of Zambia that they should be respected, we ask oh God for democracy to prevail in Zambia in the Mighty name of Jesus.”
