“Ellen Must Prepare the Way for 2017”

first_imgThe New Water in the Desert Assembly (NWIDA) has recently ended its 17th church anniversary with a call by the church pastor, Kortu K. Brown to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and all Liberians to prepare the way for the 2017 Presidential and Legislative elections to avoid any bumps, hitches, potholes in the process.Rev. Brown said, “Good leaders prepare the way for change,” insisting that an excellent leader’s mark is identified by the way transformation is processed through people and organizations.Using the theme: “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord” with Scripture Text: St. Mark 1:1-3, the cleric reminded all Liberians that they are a critical factor in preparing the way for 2017 in their thinking, feeling and decision-making. “Like people who brushed the bushes in the past for government officials to travel to their towns and villages, so must Liberians prepare the road to 2017 to avoid any glitches.”He reminded Liberians that even God when He wants to do something, prepares the way. When He wanted to usher in the New Testament from the Old Testament, He sent John the Baptist to prepare the way for Jesus.“2017 is an important democratic transition period in our country and God has sent us our ‘John the Baptist’ to prepare the way for a smooth democratic transition. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is our John the Baptist. She must ensure that the transition is smooth and successful because it has not happened in Liberia since 1944 when President Edwin J. Barclay turned over to President William V. S. Tubman, another elected President”, the preacher noted.“Just as God allowed Ellen in a generation to go a second-term, God is again preparing the country to transition from one elected president to another elected president in 73 years. Tubman didn’t turn over to Tolbert. Tolbert didn’t turn over to Samuel K. Doe and Doe didn’t turn over to Charles G. Taylor. Taylor turned over to Moses Z. Blah, but Blah was not elected as President. In fact, Blah didn’t turn over to Ellen abrogating a historical transition. He turned over to an interim head of state, Charles Gyude Bryant”, the Pentecostal cleric explained.Rev. Brown explained further that Ellen’s Presidency is historically blessed, “because God has allowed her to lead the country for two terms in a generation and has also given her the opportunity to transition the country from one elected leader to another elected leader in 73 years.”“This is a charge she cannot take for granted because it’s rare and historical in our country”, he averred, adding “the President must ensure that the country properly transitions through 2017. Ellen must remove any hitch in the way of 2017 to consolidate our democracy”.Rev. Brown, who is also first vice president of the Liberia Council of Churches (LCC), declared that each day our children in school recite that we will work for an undivided nation with freedom and fair-play for ALL. “This is the Liberian dream, the vision of the founding fathers. Liberty and freedom mean “unconstrained.” Is our country removing all constraints from before us so we can progress as a people?” he inquired.“Are we working for “one nation indivisible”? The “promise” which we call the pledge, we make to the Flag and the Republic each day is that we will work for an undivided nation. Are we working for an undivided nation when we organize ourselves on tribal lines? We may be Gio or Krahn, Lorma or Mandingo, Kru or Sarpos, but we are one nation, indivisible,” the preacher exclaimed, warning Liberians to eschew tribal divisions. Can Liberia sustain “one nation, indivisible” under the dual citizenship campaign?The clergyman reminded his congregation that there are three steps to preparations according to the Book of Revelation Chapter 2 verse 5. You must remember, repent and return, adding, if 2017 must be without interferences and interruptions even the political parties must put themselves in order to stop threading on divisive lines or there will be a “spiritual surgery” in Liberia for God to usher in the vital democratic transition of 2017, the preacher warned his audience.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
