There is a phenomenon that is rising in leaps and bounds from the White Tent in Katlehong/Spruit. He is young, charismatic, dynamic and is no conventionalist. He is attracting thousands to his healing services where he mesmerizez them with a teaching and his great voice spotting anointing. He crowns his appearance with his passion to be a vessel of deliverance for people from various ailments and oppression. His non conventionalist methods have raised eye brows as to whether he is real or fake. SOme have compared him to the MAmosamarias of this world and have claimed he is not genuine. Here is my 2 cents worth.
Mboro, as Motsoeneng is known, is clearly a gifted soul. In order to command such a following you need to either be GIFTED or be a SCAMMER and I dont see him being a scammer as I have observed his earnestness in helping people to be set free from the clutches of Satan. His ministry to young men lured by a life of crime and pseudo ghetoism, his appeal to ‘abogogo’ and across the social divide, make him palatable.
However, what is the problem in Motsoeneng’s rise is not unique to him. Why is it that when God gifts us with gifts to serrve his people we PERSONALIZE the gift and act as if IT IS THROUGH OUR WORTH. How quickly we forget the EVERYTHING we accomplish, JESUS must get the glory because WE ARE JUST VESSELS. The genuineness of Motsoeneng’s ministry is being butchered by his apparent love of himself. This love is fuelled by the thongs who follow him and do not have the sense to take the gift and let Mboro be a vessel. This disease of glorifying the vessel is evident in the following:
1. His constant referalls to himself an dinsistance that people must address Jesus and Mboro
2. His preoccupation with the miraculous. WHen God performs a miracle it is for a purpose, but when we document miracles in order to validate the prophet we miss the pioint because MIRACLES are not unique to Christians. Jesus warned his discples not to rejoice over miracles but over LIVES TRANSFORMED.
3. He ignorantly dances as people belt out a song ABUOT HIM. HOW LOW CAN WE GO!!! We must get a radical reminder that ITS ABOUT JESUS. We need the attitude of the apostles of old, who, when people tried to give glory to them, RESPONDED fiercely in teh NEGATIVE…Its not US its JESUS…Give HIM the Glory.
4. The introduction of gadgets to support prayer really spits in teh face of our claim that the NAME of JESUS is Powerful. Its Vaselines, Cloths, Water and amazingly all these come at a price. Thelove of Money is diluting the Power of God.
Mboro must learn to credit JESUS and take a back seat. I knwo its not easy when people constantly seek after you. You need maturity to keep saying ..No, they dont want me, they want JESUS.
I pray that he follows this humble path becuase I am convinced he is unique in his ministry.
NB: This is my honest observation of this man. I will not respond to half baked comments on THOUS SHALL NOT JUDGE. Please read the context before throwing verses at me.
