KING WARNS ON GREED KILLINGS
... says only individuals with the interest of the people must be elected to Parliament, not people who will appear to be caring yet they have their own hidden agendas. His Majesty said it must only be people who have God in their hearts who must win seat
His Majesty King Mswati III has said the nation must be on the look-out for opportunists who will want to take chances to get elected to Parliament as national elections draw nearer.
His Majesty said only individuals with the interest of the people must be elected to Parliament, not people who will appear to be caring yet they have their own hidden agendas. His Majesty said it must only be people who have God in their hearts who must win seats in Parliament.
These remarks were captured from the King’s sermon he delivered at the beginning of the year service at Mandvulo Grand Hall yesterday. The sermon was also attended by Prophet Walter Magaya of PHD Ministries in Zimbabwe, who was the King’s guest.
His Majesty said some people are hypocrites and opportunists who use every slightest opportunity to achieve their goals yet they do not have the people’s interest at heart. He said in most cases once they are at the top they forget that it is God’s grace that got them where they are. The King said once someone forgets God, things fall apart.
“If you want to prosper you must not forget that all you have is through God’s grace and you must guard it jealously. Once you forget the grace then you will fall from grace. Do not think that you occupy that position because you deserve it,” the King said.
“Most of the time people are pretenders and portray themselves as individuals they are not. We need people who are guided by God which comes from their hearts. When people receive God’s grace they even forget who has put them in that particular position.” He said people turn to forget who has blessed them and become big headed and forget who has elevated them to that position.
“Once God has given you the opportunity you must not forget it is God’s grace that got you to that position,” His Majesty added.
The King said people must know that at some point God will show his wrath.
He said the nation must be careful not to invite God’s wrath because once God gets to that point everyone and everything will perish.
“When God realised that people had sinned He used water to destroy them. Not even please could change God’s heart because He had already decided,” the King said.
