#GODisgreat, first and foremost! HE created the entire Universe within 7 Days. Does GOD exist? Just because you cannot see Oxygen does not mean it does not exist! Noone has ever seen Gravity but Scientists yap about it and its Effects. Who told the Sun where to stand in the Morning? Who blessed the Eagle with supersharp Eyesight? Who told the Snail where to hide and gave the Elephant its humongous Weight? Who taught the Bee how to construct hexagonal Honey Pockets that maximise Space? It can only be The Almighty One! When Birds from Israel to Albania sing, they are probably telling us that: GODisgreat! Worship only oneGOD...

1. SUNDAY: And GOD said, "Let there be Light"; and there was Light (Christ Consciousness)...
2. MONDAY: Firmament in the midst of the Waters (Heaven)...
3. TUESDAY: Waters under the Heavens gathered together into one Place (Seas); Dry Land appears (Earth); Vegetables; Plants yielding Seeds; Fruit Trees bearing Fruit in which is their Seed...
4. WEDNESDAY: Sun, Moon and Stars...
5. THURSDAY: Swarms of living Creatures; Birds; Great Sea Monsters...
6. FRIDAY: Living Creatures on Earth; Cattle; Creeping Things and Beasts; Man [Adam & Eve]...
7. SATURDAY: GOD rested from all HIS Work...

The Case For Christ
I have never seen JESUS. Nevertheless, I would be a Fool to doubt HIS Existence since every Time I feel attacked by an Evil Force in my Dreamvisions and call HIS Name, I wake up feeling rescued. Everyone is looking for a Shortcut to Happyness plus Fulfillment and sometimes we ask for it from the Devil because he pretends to care. Only GOD can bless us beyond Measure if we are very patient; the Devil performs Quickfixes that are payable with Death. I was born Anglican but grew up with a Craving for Magic though I did not visit Witches; nevertheless sometimes I prayed to Lucifer for certain Abilities but not for Money nor Possessions, I beg the Almighty Creator to forgive me! I used to think Hell was at the Namugongo Shrines in KLA City. Then I joined a Catholic School Choir in S1 and felt so rotten inside by the End of the Year (because of the Anger and Lust from my Past) that I accepted JESUS into my Heart and quit the Choir. The following Year, I went into Auto-correct Mode, became a Cabbage to purge my Tongue
and Soul plus started reading the entire Bible in Pursuit of Holyness: I finished the New Testament quickly first and then embarked on committedly reading Genesis to Malachi for two Years just before Y2K [supposed Return of Christ]. The Bible prophesies that JESUS will return to defeat the Devil and Antichrist but only YHWH knows when. Satanists take that as a Joke but when it happens, I pray we are on the winning Side. All Pain (Sickness and Poverty) will cease. An "Ancestral Dragon of Pretended Holiness" was exorcised from me in 2000. Beginning from 2002, I also researched in the Muslim Quran and discovered that JESUS is superior and will be a Witness for or against us on the Day of Judgement. Forgive us, LORD! In my Life, I never fasted for GOD as long as one Month until Ramadan 2002 when I was approaching 19 Years old. The Year 2005 was the Last Time I remember praying directly to the Devil and also gave up on him but then saw him in KLA after finishing Campus. Why can't GOD just lock away Satan instead of letting us continuously go through Trials and Temptations? GOD may seem to take HIS own Time, but HE always answers Prayers even though they can unfortunately be delayed by Demons like the Prince of Persia and several others in the Space above us...

There are nine Choirs of Angels: 
1. Seraphim (Protection), 
2. Cherubim (Glory), 
3. Thrones (Justice and Authority), 
4. Dominions (Lordships), 
5. Powers (Warriors), 
6. Virtues (Strongholds), 
7. Principalities (Rulers), 
8. Archangels and 
9. Heavenly Angels (Guardians & Messengers)...

Elvis Mbonye Quotes

[INTRO:] Isn't GOD more than what we have been taught by mechanical Religiosity and the World? Can you experience HIM on another Level of Spirit? I first got enlightened about Elvis Mbonye while watching an Advert for his The Power Of Prophecy Documentary on NTV Uganda in 2013. Consequently, I did further Research on YouTube plus online Articles. I just couldn't believe I hadn't heard of him before, yet he had been active since the 2000s and was even born in Busoga like me. Maybe my Eyes and Ears were closed. He made a Prophecy in June 2013 that kept me thinking which Southern African Leader would die before the End of the Year when he seemed to be going forward, but his Nation would continue. My Number One Guess was Robert Mugabe. However, when my African Hero Nelson Mandela (almost a Centenarian who I had left out because he was no longer in Office) died on 5th December, I made up my Mind to attend the Zoe Fellowship twice before Christmas 2013 at Open House [on Buganda Road] west of Watoto Church Parking Lot, though it later moved to Theatre LaBonita, Imperial Royale, Hilton Nakasero (next to All Saints Cathedral), Kololo Airstrip, Lugogo Cricket Indoor Stadium, Kyadondo Rugby Grounds, etc. My Wish for Madiba was that he would witness the First FIFA World Cup in Africa before he dies which he did in 2010 and lived three more Years. Zoe Fellowship has a fantastic Atmosphere, soulfully liberating Music, spot-on Words of Knowledge, simply the Best of Prophecy that the Devil shouldn't rob from Believers. The first Time I saw Elvis in real Life, he started the Fellowship by showing on a big Screen behind him the Prophecy that actually dragged me to finally check him out. At the End of the two Hour Service, he said we should come early the following Tuesday so that he can prophesy to many Individuals in one Day than usual; I hoped to be among the Chosen Ones. So, I went in Time but Elvis did not show up. Instead his Brother led the Fellowship and preached a Sermon in a Way that bent my Mind as if he was indirectly talking to me because he mentioned my Penname backwards while telling the Anecdote about one of his Friends [probably a Muteso] who believes that anywhere is a good Location to stay only if you make it so; I also believe the same: Grass is green wherever Rain falls! Was it Reverse Psychology or a Mind Game to prove to me that am no Match to the modern Day Ugandan Mystic, hahaha? You do not have to reside in over-rated Suburbs like Kololo or Nakasero to be happy; you can live happily in Kawempe or Bukoto! The Replacement Preacher reported that the Holy Spirit told Elvis not to attend that Day. In Judaism, Malachi was the Last Authentic Prophet whereas in Islam, Muhammad is considered the Last Prophet: I have always been skeptical about People who claim to be Prophets in these End Times but Elvis speaks truly brave and specific Predictions like Michael Kiganda [Glory To Glory Ministries] unlike many other Seers. In my Mind I wanted to prove if he was not just an Illusionist, Mindreader, Mentalist, Parapsychologist, Telepath, Hypnotist or Magician? He definitely is not an Astrologer! His Knowledge of the Bible is impeccable but where did he get this Extra Sensory Perception or enhanced Spiritual Vision that can predict tomorrow accurately? Maybe, Prayer [Conversation with The ALMIGHTY] works. It's like the Veil covering his Eyes is removed when he prays. You have to be really brave to see futuristic Stuff; occasionally, I see prophetic DreamVisions like a Sleeping Remote Viewer that tell me what is going to happen during the Day or some Days later. I always wait for them like Deja Vu and have been writing down Dreamvisions since 1999, two Years after accepting JESUS into my Heart. I have prayed casually to Lucifer [Satan] before during School Days but I do not think he gave me my clairvoyant Ability. It must be GOD-sent because sometimes when I say the LORD's Prayer twice before sleeping, I see prophetically unbelievable Things in my Dreams including exactly what will happen within the following 24 Hours like in an Arsenal Match of the Day [seen Liverpool, Chelsea, Barcelona and AC Milan too but over 97 percent always Arsenal because I adore AFC - pure Love], Things I might hear; who I will meet; Movie worth watching that might show on TV; News Story to focus on or who might call me! But someone could argue that Magicians like Troy [A Briton with Jamaican, German Ancestry] also have Secret-revealing Abilities? Magic and Divination are forbidden but they do not take away the Fact that GOD created the Gift of Prophecy. In the Old Testament, Instructions were given to burn the Entrails of Sacrifices. In the Pagan World, you keep them to look through and get a Message about the Future or other bits of inaccessible Information. These Practices aim at piercing the Veil between our World and the Spirit World hidden from us because Adam sinned. However, special Knowledge of the Future belongs to GOD and as Christians/ Believers, we need to trust only HIM and HIS Prophets. The Bible warns us not to contact the Dead through Mediums including dead Catholic Saints [Necromancy] or worship other gods whether carved in Stone or Wood [Idolatry like Santa Muerte]. The GOD of the Israelites cannot be bribed for Favours. Sacrifices were not given to get Stuff; Prayer is not just about conjuring up GOD to ask for new Cars or Careers. JESUS is the Life and HE wants to give everyone the Full Experience of GOD's Love. For false Prophets, once you pull back the Curtain and see how they do it, then it is not impressive at all. Elvis calls himself a major Prophet, only GOD can disprove that. Haters and Critics will attack him, but I doubt if they can overcome him. GOD is not dead! When you walk into the Fellowship Venue, you might notice white Envelopes resting on each Seat for the Congregation to put in their Offerings or Pledges before dropping them in the Collection Basket. "Zoe" is a Greek Word meaning "divine Life". Some call Elvis the Navigator, others say he is Mr. Future. He is the Author of "Tasting The Powers Of The Age To Come". You can watch EM on NTV Uganda every Sunday at 5:30PM [Repeats on Thursday at 12:30PM plus Friday at 6AM] or on KTN every Wednesday and Thursday Morning from 5 to 6AM. The Book of Ephesians is like Heaven on Earth. Chapter 4 Verse 11 says: And HE (Christ) Himself gave some to be Apostles, some PROPHETS, some Evangelists and some Pastors and Teachers. While on my Quest to read the entire Bible from Cover to Cover in O-Level, I discovered that there is a Book that records every Thought and Action from everyone. It seemed impossible but as I grew and saw more Dreamvisions fulfilled, I started believing it's possible. Infact earthly Media [which includes Newspapers, TV, Radio, Internet] does a Copy of what that Book can do but it is many Times more perfect. Austrian Rudolf Steiner called it The Akashic Chronicles. A Campus Friend who had just returned from Denmark once told me that all the Words that come out of our Mouth travel into Outer Space and can be retrieved (because they are an eternal Vibration); it was Night and I stared at the Stars. There is even a Proverb in the Bible that warns us to check what we say in our Rooms against the King, a small Bird can report to him for instance Balaam's Donkey in the Bible talked and Parrots can also talk somehow up to these Days. I used to visit an Indian OB in Kansanga who had a caged Parrot that would welcome me and chip in during our Conversations, it was refreshingly amazing. [According to the Quran, King Solomon could talk to the Hoopoe and Ants]; Walls have Ears, there are Engel Eyes in the Sky (not necessarily Man-made Drones, Spyders or Beetle Cams). Does Elvis get his Data from the AKASHIC RECORDS like Edgar Cayce did but while completely awake? Edgar said that the Best Thing to think about endlessly is Christ and HIM being crucified, "GOD is bigger than any Religion!" The great Scientist Nikola Tesla confessed, "My Brain is only a Receiver. In the Universe there is a Core from which we obtain Knowledge, Strength, Inspiration. I have not penetrated into the Secrets of this Core, but I know that it exists." Elvis takes us behind the Veil, back to the Future like 5th Dimension Telepathy. Sometimes I wish there was a Daily Prophet [JESUS is LORD] Electronic Magazine or Newspaper that records Prophecies from around the World, updated the Moment a Word of Knowledge or Vision is revealed by a Prophet. In the early 90s, I thought Newspapers were prophetic, recording in the Morning what would happen the whole Day at specific Times. That View was shaken a lot as I grew especially in P7 when I discovered from a Classmate's Textbook how Newspapers are made featuring Reports of Events from a Day before. However it does not rule out the Possibility that Electronic Newspapers can relay Prophecies of future Events and their Fulfillment. Send your Testimonies to []! Below are quotes I transcribed from the Ugandan Mystic who leads the Zoe Fellowship that meets every Super Tuesday...

[4th June 2013:] There's one leader in the South, while he's busy preparing for something, for a future, he passes on and it is some dawn of a new era in that nation. It appears like he sets up plans, it appears like he's moving on but abruptly he passes on and something happens there...

Do you believe in Prophecy?

Where Heaven broadcasts live...

There are things in the spirit realm which will begin to show the Kingdom, the order of it, the pattern of it, so much so that there will not be any confusion whatsoever. That the Children of GOD will be able to see their path clearly. That what has been obscured by the ways of man will eventually vanish before their eyes. And the path that will be before them shall be a path that is lit up by the Word of GOD, by the revelation of the Spirit, says the Holy Ghost... (1st August 2017)

Do not say in your heart: Where shall I go? Where shall I hide? How shall I turn from this? The Spirit of the LORD says, 'I have been with you even when you have not recognized Me. I have taken you through things. I have taken you through places. I have taken you through moments that you thought were going to swallow you. But I took you out,’ says the Spirit of the LORD. ‘I shall not cause, I shall not allow a hair from your head to drop. I shall not allow anything to harm you my child. Think not that my future is bleak, for it is bright. Yea even as I have been with you, so shall I be with you. I shall open your eyes to this; that you may see me that yea I am with you and I uphold you with my righteous right hand. Look into the future and see that I am there, that you may know that where I am, there also you shall be. There is no future you have outside of me,’ says the Spirit of the LORD. I am your future, and even as I am your future, your future is certain,’ says the Spirit of the living GOD... (18th July 2017)

Begin to realise that your optimum self equates to Christ JESUS... The moment you find yourself closed in, you are in your lesser self. There's always a way out if you are in touch with that Highest Self because it cannot be bound...

Whatever you experience in life are of the yield after your kind... You just cannot have an orange tree yielding a mango... Life has been set in motion along those very definite principles... Most people don't assess their life on this basis. Give an example, someone studied Engineering, went to campus and that was the course he did for 4 years, graduated in it. But then after 4, 5 years, you find that person is a janitor. So you wonder, how can an engineer become a janitor? He was never an engineer. He yielded fruit after his kind, he was a janitor studying Engineering, no matter how much he passed it...

Anything Spirit is higher than what is natural. Do you know, many of the things we know and appreciate today are a result of spiritual prowess?

Some of the beautiful Art which still compels many people was not a product of some guy sitting down and trying to draw something out of his head. If you read some of those dead guys I think Leonardo da Vinci, those fellows who produced marvelous work that has captivated the world to this day, have you? They laid back and got to some point where it was not the activity they already knew, that's what they put down. There's this part of them they allowed to flow, they became creative and allowed that part to flow and came up with works which astounded them themselves...

I can actually look at a person without having gone, like Moses, years in Medical School and diagnose their disease. Not only diagnose their disease but also heal it, glory to GOD!

Religion places hypocrisy in people; they complain and attack messages about money yet they have worked the whole week for it…

They say, ‘Which intelligence are you using to give us that info?’ I tell them, ‘The Heavenly Intelligence’…

The LORD has just told me that, er: Next Tuesday we'll have a Holy Communion Service. There's going to be a lot that will be put together! If your health was falling apart, it will be put together. Your finances, your relationship, they will be put together. Glory to GOD...

As we partake of this Holy Communion, things shall be restored, one by one by one...

There is a lady I told some years ago. She was complaining about, ‘My ki-husband, my ki-husband!’ Then I told her, you look at this guy born again, then I quoted this scripture from Peter which talks about how husbands are influenced by their wives. Begin seeing him as this loving guy, not this ki-guy. And I pray the guy is not here, but he changed after she began to see that divine perspective…

Negativity is from the pit of hell...

A time comes when you realise that there is just one way up...

Whoever receives a Prophet in the name of a Prophet shall receive a Prophet's reward... Some are prophets... Not everyone is a Prophet... Back in the 40s, I was not yet born but you could find everyone making crusades, calling themselves Evangelist... Then we went through a time when the LORD was doing something to do with Pastor... Anyone who comes like a preacher, people will most likely refer to them as pastor. Then the emphasis of a local Church: (Which Church do you attend?) because the Pastor is basically the local Church... Pastor Pastor became almost like the main thing... Now in these Last Days, it is the Office of the Prophet that the LORD is designing HIS Church; HE is making it more prominent... You will see an increase in number of pastors trying to call themselves prophets, apostles trying to call themselves prophets, evangelists trying to call themselves prophets... It's because of a lack of knowledge... Some, teachers! These giftings are an expression of the totality of Christ... JESUS is referred to as the Good Shepherd which means Pastor. At another place, you will see HIM being referred to as Rabbi meaning Teacher... HE refers to HIMSELF as a Prophet: A Prophet is without honour in his own home... You will see the evangelistical when HE calls those who are heavyladen... You will see HIM in these five ministerial callings... HE distributes HIMSELF; HE gave gifts unto men... Ephesians 4:7...

Once you mention the word "Prophet", the alarm bells that go off (are): false prophet, false prophet! And that has in a very cunning crafty way been sown in our midst by the enemy because he knows how devastating the prophetic anointing can be to his kingdom. So he goes and sows all this fear and cynicism... all this talk from the spirit of darkness to sow confusion...

The Revelation of GOD is taking prominence in our midst... You will be amazed at how things can be so easy just by realising or recognising this that the Spirit of GOD wants you to know...

[COMMAND YOUR MORNING, EPISODE 954:] You remember Jeremiah when he was called of the LORD?! When he was young, the Spirit of the LORD told him: Before you were formed in your mother's womb, I knew you! And then HE said: I ordained you to be a Prophet, long before even you were born. So much so that when Jeremiah is born and he comes onto the scene of the Earth, he has a prophetic call on his life; he is a Prophet... Jeremiah's experience resonates with mine as a prophet because I know exactly what it means when the LORD told Jeremiah that: (Before you were formed in your mother's womb, I called you to be a prophet. I ordained you to be a prophet...) I remember, as far back as I can remember, always being aware of a realm that was higher than the physical... I had this awareness of the heavenly, of the Heavenly Father, of the LORD. My family was not a Bornagain Christian family... (but) I was always communing with the heavenly. Everything that I interacted with, I would sense the life of GOD... I remember experiencing apparitions, appearances both of the heavenly and sometimes, actually many times of the other side of darkness; I was attacked by the demonic... Some of those moments would be in the night, I would wake up to what looked like young glowing children that seemed to be of my age and they had wings and they would carry me on and take me. I don't know how it happened but they would somehow manage to take me through the roof and we would go and interact with these angelic beings that the LORD would send, in a language that wasn't English but somehow we would interact with them in the language that was spiritual... I would share with my siblings some of these experiences and they wanted to experience some of these things as well but obviously they didn't... The LORD appeared to me right at the foot of my bed, I was sleeping and then I woke up and this time it was HIM and I knew it was JESUS. So HE stretched HIS hands towards me and I stretched back my feeble little hands. I was a child, remember! While I held HIM, HE drew me to HIMSELF and carried me and again we went through the roof, we were running and we were into the heavenlies. We passed through different lands that I can't fully understand even now to this day... Right there, I was taken to a beautiful garden, beautiful crystal-clear waters, various locations. For lack of a better word, we were just having fun with the LORD. I was excited and then HE brought me back. I remember having several of such experiences as a child. As I grew, because these experiences that I was having were not always good, sometimes it was demonic attacking me in the night, so I had really many frightening nights such that I tried to run away as I grew up and went through studies, I tried to run away from everything prophetic. I decided: Okay, let me involve myself in all things that would put away my consciousness from these supernatural things. So I went, I tried to run as far away from it. I studied evolution, I tried to become stubbornly hardened from these things. So, I remember I had nearly succeeded. I remember this one time, there was this girl I was going out with, yes I was going out with this girl, hehe, and, er, I remember it was one of those prophetic moments after some time. So she, I remember after coming to see me, I remember after I stared into her, I saw that someone had written to her a letter. Then I started, so I asked her: Someone has written to you a letter? Then she was shocked. Then I told her: This is what it said! So I started reading the letter to her from the beginning to the end. She was shocked again, then I told her: Bring that letter! So she went and brought the letter and I saw and I was shocked. I was also shocked that that is what it said and then after that, she said: (Okay, tear it!) and the rest is history! So, this reminded me of those encounters that I used to have. But then the strange bit was, I was not yet saved, I wasn't yet. So it was shocking, so I decided: I will not think about this! But again remember that these giftings were all along in me yet not yet sanctified because I wasn't yet bornagain. Just because your calling is always with you, until the time you become bornagain, that is when your calling is fashioned now, it's brought into the Throne of Grace to now glorify GOD. If you are called to sing music, you will have that gifting or that talent and then when you become bornagain it will only be redirected to glorify GOD... A time comes and am bornagain. Now when am bornagain that day, a very spectacular day, the Spirit of GOD ushers me in a trance and I see the LORD and HE tells me, that was the first time the LORD told me: (I HAVE CALLED YOU TO BE A PROPHET!) I now knew that I was called to be a prophet. The next morning, this same thing that used to happen way back before I had tried to silence it starts, is awakened, only this time it is different because this time it has GOD as the foundation of it...

I’m saying these things by the Spirit. If you guys knew how I receive these things, you would know the Way and get lifted out of situations. If GOD be for you, who can be against you? No fierce opposition, antagonism can put you down. Begin seeing yourself that way and you will change, glory to GOD. Lift up your hands and pray in other tongues…

Out there, the prophetic realm is something that is so misunderstood; there is gross ignorance about it. I received messages after guys had seen that NTV thing and realized that not only scripturally but even grammatically, people do not understand the prophetic. Someone asked, ‘Can you please prophetise to me?’ (Hahaha!) Then I thought that was big enough! Then another wrote, ‘Can you please prophesise on me?’ I said now the ignorance goes beyond, as if it would not get worse, another one. ‘You please propheshy’…

If the devil can manage to show you something that is in contradiction and convinces you that what you see in your situation is actually true, then he has gotten you! But then, there is another World where you exist and in that World, you are in perfect harmony with GOD and HIS Spirit and that is the World of your spirit. You have no credence of GOD and you in that World of Spirit though you get so preoccupied with this other outside fallen world that is actually a Lie. That is how you are held in bondage because you are spiritually subjecting yourself to it by acknowledging or admitting that it is the true world. If you are to define what Truth is in its right sense, it should be that which does not change. If anything changes, you cannot say it is true. We know GOD doesn’t change…

I shall cause you to bear fruit that no man nor evil can snatch from you, says the Spirit of the LORD. Behold, I bring you to a place where MY word establishes you and not even yourself can take yourself from it...

Turn to your neighbours and tell them: By this time tomorrow, I will be in a better place. Say to yourself: Somewhere in the future, I look better than I look now...

The veil is your Lowest Self whom you have grown accustomed to because you have functioned or operated on that plane, for example you went to school and they presented exam tests for you to pass. So when you took them on, the part of you that you engaged was your intellect; you analyse things and tried memory. Everything was that part of you and so if it was Math, there was a time I told Moses I did PCB/M. I told Moses I know Sub Math eh, I didn't like it. He told me: (Sub Math, me it was okay!) I looked at the guy: See this guy, how can you say Sub Math was okay? Heehee! What happens, everything that you experience, you take on the level of that limited self, that fallen self. So when you encountered a problem, you had experiences based on those encounters. So when you faced Math, you realised: I'm not a Math guy! We cannot handle so you came up with excuses such as: What will a quadratic equation help me in counting my money? So you put Math aside. But when you faced all those things, they defined you to, ya, and the you they defined was not your glorious self, it was your Lowest. What they try to achieve is bring out, veil out that Optimum Highest Self of you...

People will attack wealth and health in a very cynical way like: "For me, all I need is GOD if I only have just a little to get by." And then they have that just a little to get by, but feel they need much more than what they have. But they are sowing seed - that just a little - by attacking abundance...

Watch and pray, before you has been set life and death, blessing and cursing! And the LORD would have you choose life: It would mean anything that is uplifting, anything that is progressive, not regressive nor depreciating...

Because of the fallen nature, people are so prone to what is negative and fallen that they will grasp it with a greater intensity than that which is good, lovely, noble and from GOD...

I was caught up in the angelic realm... somewhere in the air... The LORD suddenly disappeared (but I could see angels worship sweetly at a distance)... While I was watching, another angel came and passed by flapping and then when I was going to look, the LORD spoke to me (though HE wasn't visible), "Don't look at its face!" Then I realised, that was a fallen angel. So this thing flew and then turned... I was staring at the face of this creature... It prepared to charge at me. The LORD told me again, "Don't look at it, look up (where the angels are)..." So when I looked up, there was a glory and it was affecting me... I could feel this thing flapping, falling down, flapping until it vanished...

You find a child of GOD who is in warfare from the time the year began up to the end. Man, warfare has never come to an end. And then you will meet someone else whom the Devil can't access. He that dwells in the secret place of the MOST HIGH shall abide under the Shadow of the MOST HIGH. Now the Devil has no access to that secret place. It says you will be protected from the snare of the fowler...

The LORD is my inheritance... 80 percent of the secrets he reveals to me are not for sharing...

I know what exactly I will be doing in eternity...

Experience GOD, not just needs being met! If GOD is the yield of life in manifestation, then how can needs stay? All needs and wants are cleared, glory to GOD...

GOD has never been sabotaged, HE cannot be sabotaged. HE said I will open a door that no man can shut. That life can be experienced based on the degree of openness that you allow it into you...

Just position yourself for increase, for growth, for fellowship with GOD...

You wake up and you know you are going to meet someone you haven't met for a long time. This is going to happen, you find that you are reliving what you actually knew from within. Imagine you actually got to know how you knew that and you mastered how life would turn out...

When the Righteous begin to emerge in the Prosperity of the Anointing, the entire city catches it, even those who are unbelievers... The Righteous are yet to take their positions, why? Some of them have been told: 'Prosperity is evil', you know, they've been told: 'Poverty is good! Afterall, GOD is even poor.' So they have demonized Prosperity and they have made poverty look like this is the element of holiness, you get? Because of that, the city and the entire nation takes the course and the level of the Righteous, you get? The city cannot rise beyond the level of the revelation of Prosperity that the saints have. Until they begin getting it, then we shall not see the significant rise of this nation in terms of being a lender and not a borrower and dominating the regions, dominating the continent and the world because that is our call...

The Spirit of GOD is renewing your inward man...

Enjoy the health of GOD, enjoy the finances of GOD...

People ask us questions: How come if you heal the sick, why is Mulago full? (Bible) says: There were lepers (in the time of Elijah), how come it was only Naaman that received his healing? You have to choose from your side that you're the one going to stand out. It has to be you and GOD! Leave the clamour that moves along in unbelief and darkness! Stand alone and say :My life is different...

Now, if you think it is (High Level) Psychology, come and do it...

A believer who talks demonic words is more powerful than the Devil himself because he is a tool...

Sickness shall increase if people stand against healing from the Lord, what He accomplished on the Cross... The message of the Cross is foolishness to those that are perishing. So you are made to sound fake, like if you stand by the revelation of GOD...

Those that humble themselves shall be exalted. Out there in the world, you push people down and you rise up! That is one principle. Another one is the principle for instance of giving; You give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall men give to your bosom. In the world's way of attaining that, it says killing or cheating. It is selfish or self-centred...

Our GOD is really a Lover...

Better is one day in the courts of the LORD than a thousand days elsewhere, Psalms 84:10. What GOD can do for you in one day can be much much greater than what you have tried to produce over three years of flesh...

There was a time I was looking for land to purchase and I was, in my mind, working like a fallen man: Where are the brokers? I thought they were the solution to me finding something good. When I was driving, I wanted it in a particular area, I suddenly realised: Wait a minute, you are looking all over the place, prophet! Broker? So I stopped at some stage, Zana Stage. Then I was like: Now, um, yes I will need, I acknowledge the ministry of brokers. But I said am going to call one who will take me to the exact plot I want. So what I did, I sat down and picked up his number in the spirit, shoooo, just like that. You guys are like: (How does he know those things?) I did it and called the guy, then he said: (How did you get my number?) I confused him; I normally know how to confuse people, so he's like: (Where are you?) I told him: Zana Stage. (So how did you know that am around here?) Heehee...

When you degrade yourself, you manifest results of that level. Life is just like that. But now I have tasted of the heavenly gift - Christ Jesus. His revelation will shine in you and you begin to realise: As He is, so are you in this world. When you actually realise that you deserve the Best and you make claims such as: 'I deserve the Best!', then people start asking: "Who are you?" But actually there is nothing even in this life that is worthy of you. Your value way transcends anything that is common...

When you are truly rich, you do not fluctuate...

If you look at your health, will it glorify Aspirin or see the touch of GOD...

You get a job and you don't have the credentials for it. Now that is divine favour...

The Kingdom of GOD is not in word but in power...

Study your Bible in the Holy Ghost...

Do not read the Scriptures as something of either the past or future. Read it with a now mentality, a now perspective. That is when it will benefit you...

This entire month, GOD is going to make it hard for you to struggle financially. You will struggle to get broke, glory to GOD, hallelujah...

Never take the Word of GOD as something you already know...

Jesus went through it, you don't have to go through it. That's why we have to be very stern. You don't play games with a life that is costing you a measure of the blessing. You don't accept it...

Money is your slave, it is not your master...

The Highest Level of communication is not verbal, it is intuitive... The reason why we exchange verbally is because of the separation that happened...

You don't have to request and request and request and yearn and yearn and yearn! You live your life and you are drawing from the spirit anything that you need. Anything that you want is just coming before you, and coming and coming...

Hatred is death; everything that doesn't uplift is part of this death realm. Brokeness is part of it...

Enoch was translated out of that realm that is dominated by disease, by lack, by darkness. Imagine being translated from a life of disappointment...

Anything contrary to love is not your portion...

Who told you that you have to first fail to win, Jesus failed for you...

The LORD loves you so much that HE wants you to experience Heaven on Earth...

Christ ushered you into the Ultimate of Comfort which is the heavenly realm...

In the real world, sometimes things go well, sometimes they don't. Fate has its way of presenting things. Now imagine you are being translated out of that world of fate into the Will of GOD! What you are experiencing is purely, purely heavenly. You are not going to be found in that fallen order of things, glory to GOD! That reality has ceased, it doesn't belong to your world at all. Don't try to make sense of it...

People get pissed when you say that you are anointed...

I don't know anyone in the universe who prophesies national and international issues at the degree I do...

We have the software of Prophecy...

There are certain children of GOD whom the LORD has called into prominent places. They look at themselves and then look at seasoned people and they undermine themselves like David and Goliath. They don't realise that there is something at work that can translate this person into a one day's phenomenon...

You walk with GOD until GOD takes over you...

Fear of failure is not of GOD...

When you eat heavenly food, every sense tastes it. It brings GOD and life...

How can you think that tomorrow you will be in lack when you have a Father who owns all things...

Faith (not money) is the currency of GOD...

The reason why I have blessed you alot is because you are an Arsenal guy... (Joke)

The enemies of GOD are terrified at your presence...

Years ago, when I entered a bus or taxi, I sit next to people and whoever was one way or another demonized, they jump around and the taxi has to first stop. And the conductor would say: "Let's first stop and he casts it out..."

I sat at National Theatre next to some kid on some pavement. This kid comes, on holiday. I was waiting for a sister of mine from Maryhill, Teddy. This kid comes, sits next to me and stares at me and falls from up, you know, from those pavements. Another kid, it happened twice that day. So I began realising through a lot of those experiences that there was a glory that the devils could tell was upon me...

Rise up and take your bed! Why do some people get offended when you give them that solution. The solution is there, but hidden...

You are known by certain qualities, but then you enter a certain realm in the Spirit and you get to know yourself now in a certain heavenly perspective with a new potential that you know yourself. Others may not see it because you have remained brown or black or what, whatever... The person we knew yesterday all of a sudden wakes up today and says: "I'm going to be the Greatest Businesswoman in Uganda!"

Actually when you speak, they think you are proud, but you know the world in which everyone operates, all of it comes from within. It's all about how much big you are within, how much you are able to comprehend...

I see things that the casual believer will not be able to know. But you tap those things, you draw them. Position yourself to draw from deeper graces than those you are readily experiencing...

There are also other benefits that come from this (heavenly) knowledge. Those benefits will be: Your pocket will never run dry (Clap clap clap, Amen!) A lot of you clapped when it is money. When it is the LORD, you don't want, hahaha! Okay, let's not talk about money! When you get to see these things, it is a life that is here... You can't explain it, you can't trace it. You remember like how the Lord told Nicodemus the wind blows and you don't know where it comes from and where it is headed, so is everyone who is born of the Spirit...

I've always had the desire to feel (GOD), to interact with HIM, to see HIM has been greater, greater, greater than anything life can offer. I have followed him that way, where I remember one friend of mine years ago, I don't know whether he's here. He had been born again, he even kind of mentored me when I had gotten born again. So he came, they were concerned that I was always seeking GOD, seeking GOD. They came to me and said: You have to realise that, what, that GOD wants you to have money. I said: Yah, I knew that it was scripturally. Yah, but it being there or not for me wasn't the case. It's the Will of GOD. I used to go on a certain hill, myself and the LORD. I would pray for a few hours in the Holy Ghost, then all of a sudden, there was a smoke that would come around. Sometimes, rain is falling, that smoke comes and descends and engulfs around me and I have hours of literally Heaven on Earth inside that cloud and it is all over me. Now I come back, when I come back, you can't begin telling me: You have missed a sandwich. You can't tell me anything. Well, it's good and what. I actually got to, that's how my loss of appetite came from, because I literally ate of the heavenly food, literally. I'm not talking I read something then it became food, what, in spirit. To me, well it's okay you know, to have whatever you want to have. It's okay but I got to a place I had with the LORD that I couldn't trade it for anything... I realised there is a place in the Spirit, only you know it... LIFE! You talk of satisfaction, you talk of fulfilment, everything in the same package. You don't want, you don't need anything after those moments...

HE (GOD) says: I know you by Name; you do not get demoted, you do not get rejected. Everywhere you go, Doors just open up for you... HE is not planning for the Company. A Company might just stay up just because you are there, just for you... You will not fall with the Multitude; you will know that a Bus will not fall over just because you are there... You will know that everything has to go well as far as the Economy is concerned because I want it that Way. Everything GOD does HE considers you...

A Time comes when this Glory is revealed and you are impressed. So you move with this Consciousness... The Fact that someone does not carry this full Glory is what makes him not GOD... The Glory of the Heavenlies: You put it in a Room and it passes through the Wall. Its Class is different... The first Man Adam was made a living Soul, the last Man JESUS who you proceed from was made a quickening Spirit (a Life-giving Spirit)... That's the Glory that you carry. Everything you touch, you give Life...

The Time has come for a new Breed of Believers to wake up and begin realising that there is this other Realm. There is this other Substance; it is invisible but it is more real than the natural Substance and that they can actually get a hold of it, that it is the building Block of all their Desires. And in whatever Way they imagine to grab it, they can actually grab it because it is there. It just takes your Imagination and it will work for you in whatever Area of your Life. Glory to GOD...

Have you ever had a Day where everything good is just happening? Nothing goes wrong, everything is just going right. Even the Atheist will say: GOD! They know, it will spring from you, because somewhere within the Human Heart is this Recognition of GOD. When Goodness happens, thank GOD! There is a Sigh of Relief and that Sigh of Relief is always an Acknowledgement of GOD, of the Hand of GOD. So HE says: You want to be impressed with ME, eh? You really want my, what (Glory)? I will mess you up with Goodness. I will hammer you, hammer you until you say: No, no! By the way, I'm telling you what I know that the LORD can mess you up with Goodness. HE hammers you from every Corner, and you even hide. "It's okay now! Please, you just stop! This is now getting too much!" And even in that Corner, HE comes and finds you there and messes you up, you come and run. You are just taking off, Things just tracking you down everywhere. That is the Goodness of GOD... You are impressed more with it when you don't feel deserving...

You are not beyond the Reach of the Hand of GOD...

Some see Glory, some cannot... I'm telling you of a Creature that has six Wings, that is so powerful in Expression. You get? Some of you, I think, if you watch these Things in a Movie, you will think you are even watching a Horror...

I grow up and then, all this Memory am trying to erase involving myself in all manner of Things. I must say I successfully to a great Degree managed to erase a huge Chunk of it. I lived almost totally as a natural Person until the Time when the Presence of GOD, the Holy Spirit came and visited me in a profound Way at Home in my Living Room. I found myself... babbling a Language that I could not articulate in a known earthly Language. I found there was something of an electric Charge proceeding out of me, out of my entire Being. It surrounded me. I remember the whole Room was charged. I remember hearing the LORD telling me: I have called you to be a Prophet to the Nations...

We do not want to coerce anyone to coming and seeing what GOD is doing. We wanted GOD to bring the right kind of People, those that he has preserved to enter into this Dimension... Someone comes and it is from their Heart. Anyway, we start off that Way. Within a couple of Weeks, it was a residential House, the entire residential House is full. To make the long Story short, we shift over into Hotel Triangle, a Hall of 60 from packing ourselves up with 30 People... in again a small space of time, it's filled up. We go to another Hall in the same Hotel, 100, it is filled up. We go to a neighbouring Hall, a Capacity of about 300, it is filled up in a couple of Months. Then we shift over into LaBonita Theatre. It is filled up in a couple of Months. Now right where we are, it is a Capacity of 1000s, it is filled up. And all by the People the LORD has found for such a Time as this to enter into the Dimension that HE has reserved for a Time as this. There is Greatness that HE has reserved; there is a prophetic Remnant that will usher the World into the Dimension that has been held up in the Heavenlies that have come for such a Time to draw an entire Humanity into something that had been hidden yet it is very real, it is very profound. Even if you wanted to argue about it, you would not be able to. You would either fall on the Side, those who I always called deliberate Unbelievers who see and yet deliberately reject it, or you will come to the Realisation,... that the LORD indeed is GOD... The LORD indeed has a Plan, not only for me, but for you, for him and everyone. That Plan is unveiled much more clearer as we delve into the Realm of the Prophetic...

I authored Tasting The Powers Of The Age To Come in 2012; it was actually published in 2012, that means I authored it in 2011. A couple of years before I authored it, I had received the title of it from the LORD and I thought I was supposed to write it then, back then about five years before I actually authored it. When I had gotten out a paper; I always do my authoring from a paper, I write down before I go to, yeah. So when I did that, the LORD told me: (YOU DO NOT HAVE THE REVELATION OF IT YET. THIS IS SOMETHING WHICH YOU WILL DO LATER!) So it was about five years later when HE told me: (NOW YOU CAN WRITE!)...

Anything outside of who GOD is or doesn't originate from GOD is not Truth. It is falsehood no matter how real it appears. That means everything sin that is viewed in the world after the fall of man which would include sickness, disease, poverty, failure, lack of the perfectness of the Blessing of GOD in manifestations, it is not true. But now why the Spirit of GOD is bringing all this to our attention is, we have been ministered to by a Lie. And we have continued in that lie until it became our truth. And so you find people going to be delivered from the Devil. And then you ask them: But the Word says in Colossians 1:13 - JESUS actually delivered us from the dominion of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of HIS dear Son. Then the person tells you: (You cannot just write off these things, well my sister did not get married, now she is 50. The second born also, now also me and you can see it! All of us men came and almost kwanjula-d.) Now how can you tell me it did not work out, that is something is happening? You end up being ministered to by a falsehood. According to what GOD categorizes as true is things that represent HIS essence or person, any other thing is contradiction. If you somehow failed, it's a lie...

Know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Years ago, there's a friend of mine who had fallen for a girl, not in a bad sense... He wanted some girl but didn't have her phone number and so he asked me: (Can't we pick it up?) Hahaha! So, we were at Botanical Gardens, we talked, this guy really wanted this girl. So he asked we pick it up, eh! Ya, so we picked it up, heehee! So I gave it to him and the guy called and he was sorted. That may appear some weird example but you have to leave bounds. Some of you are looking at me and saying: (Is this guy a prophet?) Anyway, do not postpone your wedding! When we stand here, we see things and we look and we try not to tell people. GOD is a good GOD, you want me to tell you, hahaha! Whatsoever is born of GOD overcomes the World. Do you know that? It is sorted! You cannot be overcome, you cannot fail, you cannot be disadvantaged. You just can't come up with: (You see for me am disadvantaged; I don't have people.) It is impossible! Whatsoever is born of GOD overcomes the World, there is no force of nature or in hell can stop you. Now whatever would try to stop you has to contain with divinity. If divinity is that weak to be defeated by human force or demonic force, we would rather be human again. Never be convinced by any situation that you are going to be overcome and now that's what we were saying before, you find yourself instead of continuing in the truth, you are faced by that situation and it begins speaking to you instead of allowing the Word to speak to you the truth and that sickness begins telling you: (2 months to go!) Then you say: (Okay man!) Then you continue in that. (Now one month and a half to go) and it is communicating to you. That's the whole problem. We are looking at the wrong thing and allowing it to communicate to us and then we continue in the bondage. JESUS said: (The Devil is a liar and the Father of Lies!) HE meant that whatever he throws at you is actually not true; it isn't, don't consider it. I take that in its very core of being divine. If something is a lie, then actually it is an illusion, it isn't real...

The Spirit of GOD shows me the entire nation and there are clouds still hanging on, that, above and they are red clouds. Father, we declare that your mercy prevails on this nation. Spend one minute praying for this nation. I'm very serious about that, just pray for the Peace of this nation! Shikaraba... [2013]

You guys should better catch up with the supernatural so fast coz there is a lot that is in store for us...

When we come around here, you don't realise some of the things which are actually here. I'm giving you a simple example: All you see is: (That guy dresses smartly. Why would he put on something like that?) You only see loud speakers and chairs and you know. When you listen to the Word, you don't listen to it in its very reality; it's still veiled to you... Now you walk into a place like this and you cannot see anything other than your neighbour and chairs around, but you do not see your angelic neighbours; that is very very serious! You know we get so used to it, to living behind the veil that we just walk in, wooh, sit down. And when you talk of angels, you are like: (There are angels here?) It begins to be some alien-thought to you. To me, even GOD is here, so let's be very very careful. Now, holy! It is something that has deprived the Children of GOD from actually living in the experience of GOD, that veil that lingers. They do not know how to disassosiate themselves from that veil and to begin experiencing reality from beyond that veil. That is one of the Most Important Things that can happen to you. You will hear about something but not really know it. GOD said: (IS THERE ANYONE LIKE JOB MY SERVANT, RIGHTEOUS MAN AND ALL THESE THINGS, IS BLAMELESS?)...

[2017] Happy New You, not Happy New Year...

You can do something good out of season and miss its opportune time...

While the global trend is to move away from oil to alternative energy, the opportune time is now for the country's oil sector to take shape because there will be a refocus on oil and its value will increase...

There are prophetic details that are revealed that might appear embarassing but they are not really carried out in public [to embarass]... It's about redemption... Prophecy is about redemption, it's about covering, it's about grace and mercy. The earlier people get to know that, the easier they will benefit from the prophetic...

As I had set myself in a time of meditation, all of a sudden am seeing, you know, the veil begin to part and am beginning to see beyond where the physical eyes can reach and so am taken to a place and am beginning to see the theatre of that day play out and what I see again, where am taken, are the Oscars. Let me read to you coz I really don't know these things, so I wrote them down as I would come out momentarily from the vision and the trance, I would momentarily, you know write them. Some of them are not as clear again because I really do not know anything, eh, in the Oscars and especially those people that were shown me. If it was, or someone like probably [Mesut] Oezil, there I would zshoooo, you know, write, eh! You know this is very clear, you see eh! But er, now okay! In the Oscars while I was there, I saw an announcement and there were two contenders, contentions that I would see from the judges of two movies that were for, note this, Best Picture, because I saw it written and two movies were in contention, eh. Now, I don't really think that they've even made nominations. The media team will come to me and try to enlighten me about this, eh, but the two of them I remember one of them had something to do with -Land, eh... Prophecy comes on different Levels. There is one that comes on a certain Level where you cannot clearly retain what you have picked up and there is this Influence that can come in and you can become inaccurate. Something which I know... the one that had -Land [within its Title, that is La La Land] won the Show for Best Picture [at the 89th Academy Awards/ Oscars]... Then I saw Best Supporting Actress and there was Viola Davis... Then for Best Supporting Actor, there was a Muslim-sounding Name; it had something like Mahershala Ali, Ali something like that. It was Moonlight; I remember Moonlight... Best Animated Feature, there was Zootopia. Then there was a Song that started playing and I wondered what was this! Then it was written on City Of The Stars; it was the Best Song, Song of the Year. The Best Adapted Screenplay was Fences...

[On KTN's Life & Style - Talentscape Show:] The Tsunami in 2004 was my First Prophecy on an International Scale. Before then, I was prophesying simply on a personal level and then I received this prophecy about this devastating thing. I was seeing it and then I saw the date it would happen, precisely the 26th of December. So I shared it with a few people around. Then because it had a date to it, so I waited to see what would happen. Strangely, when it happened on the exact date, I did not realise it was it until after two days. That's when I woke up to: "Eh, wait a minute!" We went [checked] and this was it, the exact thing. So it was the prophecy that ushered me into prophesying national and international things...

I was ministering, I was preaching. By then the fellowship was small; it was about 100 people. Then I started to see it, I started to see that Uganda would send these choppers to Somalia, then I saw them crash. Of course, we prayed against it because you know, when you see a disastrous vision, it's not given to you for it to come to pass. It's given to you again for redemptive purposes. So we prayed against it but then I went ahead to contact certain people, you know, in office, authority to try and stop it, they didn't listen. Somehow we didn't get through to them. We got through but they said: "It has already come out in the news so we can't..." But there is a prophecy! "No, but it's already..." But they learnt the hard way... I think that was one of the prophecies including the terrorist attacks at Rugby Club that got people to wake up and realise that what they are dealing with here is not human but it is GOD at work...

You can talk about the LORD all you can but the evidence of HIM being LORD is when HE is in manifestation, how do you deal with that?! The Pharisees actually were talking about the same LORD that eventually appeared to them and it was proved that all their talk was merely talk. They were just religious, they were not a spiritual people. Most of our society today, Kenya, Uganda all over, the majority of the people are not really submitted to the LORD as GOD. They think they are because noone can come out and publically say that: The LORD is not GOD! because it is a scary thought to them but when push comes to shove, they find out that they actually don't really honour the LORD; they don't fear the LORD...

Kenya is a chosen nation in terms of industry; it's suppposed to be leading [in East and Central Africa]...

Dreams are prophetic phenomena; how you deal with them is very important... They are revealed to you for redemptive purposes not for them to come to pass. When you see [terrible] dreams like that again, just go before the throne of grace and say: In the Name of JESUS, you will not come to pass! This shall not come to pass! Cancel them...

You fail by your wisdom. There is such a thing as a divine grace that comes on you and is at the forefront of all your plans. If you start your life with it, then it's in contact with not only what you have planned but much more than what you have planned, it will bring into your life much more greater things. That's the life that I live. I live a life that is greater than what my strength or my wisdom would produce. That's why am saying: Better than planning out your life, recognise a grace that you will take advantage of and am going to show you how you would do that. 2 Chronicles 20:20 says that, "Believe in the LORD GOD and you shall be established! Believe HIS prophets and you shall prosper..." Now, er, what that is, er, a prophet will release what we call a prophetic grace that he has heard from Heaven or that he has received from Heaven for that season. For me and the ministry and the grace that I carry for this year, the LORD told me that whoever shall submit to that word and that word is, HE told me: HE maketh me lie down, HE makes me lie down in green pastures! Now what happens then is, er, you submit to it and you wake up in the morning and say: Okay, this shall cover my life that am not going to struggle. Making you lie down means GOD is going to sort me out. Believe HIS prophets and you shall prosper. But imagine you wake up and think: Okay, this is what am going to do, there is a lot am going to deal with! How about waking up with that as your forethought that actually: All things will come in place, HE will make me lie down in the pastures that I want to. Now you exercise that, all of a sudden you will start seeing life connecting. Life is supernatural...

I'm a prophet, not illuminati...

I am a very simple man...

Some of them [fellow pastors] say the powers I use to prophesy are from the Devil. But I just forgive them because most of them don't know what they are talking about...

There is a state I have to be in to prophesy. When am in a tired state and relaxed, I can prophesy. But when I am pre-occupied, I struggle a lot or even fail completely...

GOD is not [distant] like HE has been presented. HE is closer to anyone no matter what someone has or has not done; HIS mercies are always new every morning. Your life can just turn around and there is noone destined for a dark future...

I used to go in isolated places to pray on the hills just to avoid interaction and understand more of the LORD...

We hire the Fotogenix tent alone at over 20 M UgX, the public address system and live coverage is about 15 M UgX and the hotel charges us over 10 M UgX. It's by GOD's grace that we manage...

[Talking to NBS TV's Mable Twegumye Zake (on the People & Power Show):] Because of the generalitites in what we do, especially in the things of GOD in the Church, any preacher will be labelled pastor but it is as ridiculous calling me a pastor as it is calling a doctor an engineer! So am a Prophet of GOD called to serve GOD in that capacity and not in the capacity of a pastor. But I would understand people calling me pastor... though it is technically not correct...

(I'm) the Force of the Holy Spirit. There are various forces, there are various levels of life: there is the natural level of life. With that, you've got to use your natural human strength and every attributes to it. It can only take you so far; it will give you the credentials that can only take you that far in life. But if you desire, if you aspire for something that is greater than what you know your natural human strength can't give you, your natural connections can't give you, then you've got to look up to something greater and that is the divine Power of GOD! When you learn how to connect with that power, the results that you get will astound so many because they will try to understand how it is that you are specially succeeding or progressing and they will not measure up to anything that they can attribute to your intellect, your wisdom. They will know that there is something way beyond that is at work in your life. So that is what I call the Holy Spirit; you come to the knowledge of it when you meet Christ. After that your life is asail with that power. You are no longer dependant on your own wisdom, the Wisdom of GOD is at work. The difference between people like me and some other people is you get to know - to realise the insufficiencies, the limitations of man. You also get to acknowledge the all-sufficient Power and Knowledge of GOD and then you only learn how to walk with him in experience, not just having a Religion but in experience. That's what makes the difference...

[Me being a husband at home is] as natural as it gets... As ordinary as it gets, you know: Eating supper, discussing, planning, chatting and that is it...

I have a background in Sports, I love Sports, I love Football to be specific. I played Football when I was in Secondary School, way from Primary School to Secondary School. I played it, I still watch it, I enjoy it. I just enjoy staying fit not because the modern man likes to do so but just because I like to do so...

I enjoy nice Comedy, I enjoy Detective Thrillers, um, yuh, basically anything that can make you laugh, that is funny and especially the Thrillers... because GOD did not say: Don't watch secular movies! Well, you engage in what people call secular life everyday. So if I watch it on TV or see it across the street, it's all the same...

A few times, I go out to get some coffee and chat...

It switches on and off. I start looking and start seeing something about your life. So when that happens, long time ago, I used to give it to you directly whether you are a stranger or and that is how I lost a lot of friends and family members because of fear. I didn't know, I wasn't mature enough to walk this walk until the LORD told me to learn when not to give it out while you are seeing it. So I learnt how to take it under control. I always actually see; if I decided to, I can but I don't always. Now I know when to rely on the Wisdom of GOD on how to say it and when to bring it out...

I'm just cool and flamboyant; I think am just that. I prefer it to ugly and shabby. So I just love it being like this. I don't intend to but I just love it being like this...

A lot of the sentiments about how a Man of GOD ought to be, ought to appear, most of it is rooted in either ignorance or what you think, you know, what you think they ought to, not really from scripture and how GOD actually views it. So, when you study the Scripture... the Scripture talks about how: HE, JESUS was made poor that we might be made rich. Now the so called "humility" equating it to poverty and lack and mundane is actually an insult to GOD. The Man of GOD represents GOD. It's more like you know: I travelled to a certain country, I won't mention, then I looked, they showed me our embassy. Then I said: This is misrepresenting! Whether it was correct depiction or, I looked and I said: Wow, imagine the people who pass here and then see Embassy of Japan and then ours was somewhere in the corner. So it is a representation that GOD would not have, a Man of GOD with torn things and then, you know, so called "humble". It is first of all rooted in ignorance. It is an insult to GOD, it is an insult to everything that HE represents. Reducing a Man of GOD to poverty in the name of humility and all this is really saying that all the fellows up there out there who belong to some other fellow, the Devil, really deserve; they deserve this but the Man of GOD ought not to. You will notice that when you are a true Man of GOD, these things just come to you. Seek first the Kingdom of GOD and all these things shall be added unto you. What happens is, whether you like it or not, wealth will come running out to you. It is almost like you position yourself rightly and this is how these things work, whether you are a Man of GOD or not, a Child of GOD, these things come running down to you because that is the heavenly life...

I'm a Top Leader and I know it will offend so many people but that is the truth. [Security Detail] is not centred on security and fear as it is on protocol and the realisation that a Man of GOD ought to rest. It happened with JESUS's days; you noticed when people would come thronging to him, the disciples would, you know, HE had that and they would block until HE says: Okay, bring that one! Because of that, you will need to regulate your engagements. If you don't, History has had a number of Men of GOD who have actually burnt out, who have blown it because of that, great Men of GOD. So, it is really not fear-based; it's not anything other than protocol and regulation...

This is where the callings come: I am not a pastor, am a prophet. The design of the pastoral office or the pastoral calling is different from the prophet and that is something that people fail to realise. The pastor is the shepherd, in other words: the shepherd is in touch with the sheep. The prophet, you will look all through the Scriptures right [from] Old to the New Testament... you will notice he was not always in touch. The Bible says: You receive a prophet in the name of a prophet, you will receive a prophet's reward. If I came here and you expected the pastoral counselings and all that, you know that kind of connection, you miss out on the prophet's reward. That is why in the biblical times, you will notice people were experienced, they were trained in these things. We are living in the times where the Office of the Prophet is just emerging, is just rising up. Much of what people have encountered, have known is really the pastor so they would expect: Oh... I'm under very strict regulations from Above, from the Throne of GOD on how I conduct myself as a prophet and how am to mold this image because this is a time when GOD is restoring the Office of the Prophet such that people may be able to distinguish the interaction, the reception of a prophet as contrary to these other ministries. It took the person who wanted to see a prophet to know how they can make contact and take advantage of whatever the prophet has in order for them to benefit. If you came with this mentality of: Oh, we've been having counselings with our pastors and how do I counsel with you?, I would be doing you a disservice if I gave you that...

[Flashes] happen differently like the one of the chopper crashes. I had actually finished preaching, by then we used to meet at Hotel Triangle and then all of a sudden, I see a flash of choppers running and they are crashing and I get a sense these are en route to Somalia. So I tell the crowd that was in attendance to pray against it and stop it. Then we tried to call some people after that, you know some authorities to stop it, to try to tell them what we had seen; they didn't really take us seriously and that is how it happened. The thing is: Some of them are as vivid as am looking at you now, but others are actually coming in less vivid forms, they are more blurry. That one was vivid but in flashes. There are those which come at a level of knowledge, not even sight... Some come at a level where you would know something but then you are not seeing it now. Those which come at that level I have misinterpreted them sometimes, you know what you are seeing but you are not interpreting it well. There are different levels of the prophetic revelation so others you are caught up in them; it's as though you are experiencing, you are in the movie itself. Then there are those you get flashes, then there are those now the ones which I do the personal ones every Tuesday especially when I hold someone and they are not fearing, I feel their lives. When I feel your life and am into your life, then all of a sudden I start to see your life...

I do not personally handle finances, I do not even know how our financial ministry is doing; someone is doing it but am a million percent if there is anything like that, I'd back anything that they do. The fellows that do that first of all, they are probably broke so money is their problem. The guys that come to fellowship, they know the blessing of GOD, they know the Scriptures. So we are not doing things because certain outside forces want us to do things the way they want us to do. We are doing things because GOD wants us to do things that way. When the Children of GOD gather especially at fellowship and would want to fund, whatever would want to do, whatever would want to finance, if it happened like in the days of Solomon where you know, gold until he says: Okay you can take it back!, then there we will stop. But as far as what we want, we have not yet even scratched the surface because we really have got to show the kingdom of GOD as wealthy and as influential and as established. Now the Devil doesn't want that... We don't spend less than 50 Million every fellowship, every Tuesday, that is only Tuesday operations. Now the Devil would want us incapacitated, crippled financially that whatever we are doing to his Kingdom ceases. So that is why he raises up a voice...

The Spirit of GOD has raised up a standard against any standard out there and the world has got to deal with it whether it makes them happy, whether it angers them...

There is I think one man who I had always wanted to meet, but I only met him in the spirit, it was Kenneth Hagin. He's the one I consider my spiritual father. He's an American Man of GOD who passed on... That is the only man that I really, from the bottom of my heart, I really desired to meet until I didn't meet him on earth; I met him in the spirit... I went to some hotel, somewhere in another country and one of the managers thought he would impress me, so he told me: You know, Benjamin Netanyahu slept here! You know Obama also slept here! Then the Pope, he slept here, you know! So I looked at the guy, and I think I asked him something that offended him even because he was expecting that yes, you are privileged because Obama actually slept here. I looked at the guy and said: This guy! He slept on that bed and it's still as ordinary. If Kenneth Hagin or any other anointed man had slept on that bed, I would really desire to sleep there because there is something that catches the anointing. These guys are lumps of flesh, not lumps of flesh like in a derogatory way but they are earthly. I have met people obviously who some people would want to meet, I think they are great but they are not like at my: I want to meet them...

My young sister was the first to get saved at home; I despised saved people, how you would call them, saved people. So that morning, actually the day before they had decided to come to kind of share with me the things of the spirit. Before then, I must say I had started actually having convictions from Above. So that morning as they shared, as they shared, you know, there was this mocking thing, you know coming from me again, once again. To make a long story short, we decide to close in prayer. While I bowed my head, I just found myself saying: JESUS, JESUS forgive me! What felt like a few seconds or a few minutes later, I realised that I was speaking a language that I didn't know, so I looked up and then I thought: Okay, something is wrong! So I turn, and again to make a long story short, I burst out in what I now know to be speaking in tongues and there was a strange power that was all over my body, every bit of my being that is coming out from me. And that was the day I was born again and that is the day I received the call of GOD...

There is one Man of GOD, no matter what people think of him or whatever you know, that I admire for his earlier ministry when I wasn't even saved. Pastor Robert Kayanja is not a personal friend; but even before we were saved, we knew that name! Now, he stood out as a man that really, those days when the Gospel wasn't as common, he was in leadership. So you cannot ignore, no matter what you think of him, you cannot ignore the work that he did, the people that he brought to the Kingdom. If there is a man that I really admire what he did for the Kingdom, coz I remember even while I was not bornagain, that is him...

I have seen JESUS. When you meet HIM at the Throne, it is more of a glory and a form when you meet HIM at the Throne, a form of man with glory, with brilliance, with glory! When HE appeared to me, the first time that I saw HIM in physical person then HE walked in, um. I remember someone had told lies about me, it was one pastor I remember, so in the morning I wake up and HE walks into my room, again to make a whole story short, I thought: This is a young man! HE looked young. Now, in my mind I had kind of thought: This is an old man, eh but HE was young. I saw HIM as HE was about 2,000 years ago when HE was on earth, the Jewish person HE was. I saw every feature of him and HE came smiling to me. Then HE told me, again make a long story short: I will never leave you nor forsake you! So, HE is the Most Perfect Person and even in human form that you can find. You cannot call HIM handsome or beautiful, HE is both. HE's, yeah! HIS eyes are the thing I will never forget. HE looks at you and you can't see anything; all your insecurities are gone. Any kind of insecurity you've ever had, even towards HIM, even when you think that you have actually betrayed him, it's all gone. You know HIS love, that is all I can say. The longest I have spent without actually, I think is a month, without actually walking there with him. What people don't realise is, er, you can as well. That is not limited to me as a prophet. This is the Life of the Child of GOD. When the veil was rent in two, it was an invitation into the Holy of Holies for the Children of GOD to start having these one on one experiences in the very Holy of Holies. The only thing is to learn how to engage it, but you can as well...

There is a life greater than the life so many live; that life is accessible to anyone. Do not let anything or anyone for that matter confine you to what is natural, to what is dead and stale and that includes even a religious leader. Awaken to what is supernatural! Experience, GOD did not come to give you a story about HIMSELF; HE came to give you an experience of HIM and when HE comes, HE comes to prosper you, HE comes to make you successful, HE comes to make your life worth living. So go beyond the tradition and all these things that you have had. Seek to know HIM yourself and you will find HIM!

In the Name of JESUS, Glory to GOD!

PROFILE: Elvis Mbonye [Born 27th March 1977 in Jinja, Uganda] is a modern day mystic, GOD's man with an eye for tomorrow. He is a charismatic Christian leader, author and self-proclaimed prophet of Uganda's Zoe Fellowship that meets every Super Tuesday in KLA City from around 6PM. As a renewalist, he believes in the possibility to "awaken humanity to the infinite realm of spirit and thereby live a transcendent life". In 1998, he witnessed a vision of JESUS who bestowed upon him not only a ministerial calling but also the gifts of ESP [Extra Sensory Perception], faith healing and prophecy. Thus born again, his unusual dreams, visions and revelations have manifested in the real world: he predicted the re-election of George W. Bush, the 2004 Tsunami, uprisings in North Africa, future events in the lives of Fellowshippers, death of a revered Southern African leader in 2013 [who happened to be Nelson Mandela] and much much more. Elvis Mbonye was born in a family of seven to Leo and Teddy Ntiru of Bugolobi who departed in 1990 and 1996 respectively. He attended Mbuya Nursery School, Kiswa Primary School, Kigezi College Butobere for O-Level and Standard High School Zana for A-Level. He later enrolled to Makerere University Kampala where he graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor's Degree in Development Studies...

"Who is this PROPHET ELVIS MBONYE everyone keeps talking about? Imagine you were fired from the job on Monday and on Tuesday a certain guy tells you: [On Wednesday at around 2pm you will receive a phone call from this number 0417-234000 and you will be reinstated back to your job] and it happens just exactly the way he said it.
What do you call a man who looks at your Doctor's medical report which says that you are barren, you have Cancer and you have approximately 2 to 3 months to live, prays for you and only says: IT IS DONE! Two years later you are still alive and in good health, 9 months later the scan shows you are expecting twins!
How can you explain a guy who was jobless, broke in 2014 and received a prophecy on his life that he's going to be an entrepreneur, businessman, help many people; three years later the same guy has rental apartments, set up his own business, bails people out in millions, has a good paying job? He didn't steal or win a lottery but he's very successful.
What manner of man is this who can tell events, one year before they happen, outcomes of local and international astonishing events that no scientist, NASA experts nor archeologist can foresee, but he accurately tells it all and specifies the months and dates when they will happen and and the signs and significance of it to you.
You must be mad (satirical), crazy, out of your mind to go to a foreign nation ministering LIVE on National TV watched by millions of viewers across, minister to people in the studio, tell them their names, villages (you have never been to), birthdays and names of their children, plus events that are going to happen to them in two weeks without missing a dot !
Thousands of people's lives have been changed both spiritually, financially, emotionally. We have witnessed miracles and wonders before our very eyes, amazing testimonies, the fellowship has grown in numbers to the extent that no hall in Uganda can accommodate the growth, until they decided that we now need stadiums with capacity of 15-20 thousands every week..." - LAMECK RAYMOND KIYIMBA

Translate Lugbara to English [Free Dictionary]

What is Forest in Lugbara?
Aiko's [One Page] Lugbara Dictionary
Translate English to Lugbara! Like the Chinese, Burmese, Thai, indigenous Mexican, Norwegian plus West African languages, etc, Lugbara is also based on Tones; some words when pronounced differently mean something else eg ti can mean cow, language, mouth, lip, the sound of dripping liquid; to drop a liquid (eg ointment), deliver (bear, give birth), sign, press (eg a button), pick (eg fruit from tree), dress smartly, tie (thatch, fasten) strangle (hang) yourself or in vain (delayed). The word for head, get warm or hotter and hand is spelt dri while to read and to lie down (sleep) is la but pronounced differently. Meanwhile others are the same sound depending on context eg to beat with a stick and draw pictures is [o]gba. Some words are said threeways like valley = a'bu, e'bu and i'bu or twoways like fish = e'bi and i'bi. As for English [Mundu ti], it has some words with the same sound but different spellings eg bone and born; borough and borrow; con matches with cone and corn; pawn with porn; read with reed plus rid; sheep with ship; sight with site; son with sun; etc. What is internet in Lugbara? Indaneti. What is computer in Lugbara? Kompota, Komputa or Kompuuta. What is subcounty in Lugbara? Jo ago (also Gombolola). Can you translate sorghum to Lugbara? Ondu. How do you say website in Lugbara? Webusaiti. Translate video to Lugbara! Vidio. What does ongulumu mean in Lugbara? Organisation. Learn Lugbara by reading! Below is a free electronic Lugbara Dictionary [edited by Aiko +256(712)356257]; it's not as cumbersomely fast as Google Translate but can be accessed more remotely than paperback. The brackets () show Parts of Speech and alternative Words while the second set [] stand for the Change in Pronunciation. From personal observation as a Side B Lugbara (born and raised outside Lugbaraland), some words are repeated to create a new word eg munimuni = soft. Letter C in Lugbara is always pronounced "ch" like in church even when written without H! The majority of Lugbara words have less than seven letters. Sometimes at the end of a word, you can do without repetition of the vowels a & i, the other three are okay because they have distinct tones when repeated but: -taa might mean "in -ta" [eg leta-a = in love, instead of letaa-a]/ -ii might mean "-i the one" [eg andri-i = the mother, instead of andrii-i]; consonants are rarely repeated! In Lugbarati, the sound nv is written mv eg Mvara. Adding -ru to any noun or adverb means "like the word before" and is usually used for female given names for instance badaru translated from Lugbara means "like anyhow" or "orderless". When expressing past tense, you can use ra or 'bo after the verb eg eve ra (burnt); eve 'bo (has burnt). Adding -ko or -yo means "without" eg maliko = without wealth, 'bayo = without people; adding -si to a noun means "with" eg letasi = with love while adding -ku to a verb means "doesn't" eg asiku = doesn't care. Adding -ta (same as -taa though I regulate such words here) and -za to some verbs makes them nouns and there are so many formed like that eg otuta = arrangement (also otutaa) and otuza = arrangement; adding -jo means "house of" eg arojo = drugshop or hospital; adding -zu to a verb means "for" eg edrizu = for sending whereas adding -a to a noun means "in" or "at" eg aru-a = in prison...

Pronunciation Guide [Lugbara Phonology]
The Lugbara alphabet has 28 letters minus ‘q’ and ‘x’ [Alamakanda in Aringa Dialect], which means 24 like in English and four unique ones namely: ‘b like in ‘bua, ‘d like in ‘dia, ‘w like in ‘wara and ‘y like in ‘yeta. Letters are pronounced as follows: Ah, Ba, Cha, Da, Eh, Fa, Ga, Ha, Ie, Ja, Ka, La, Ma, Na, Oh, Pa, Ra, Sa, Ta, Uw, Va, Wa, Ya, and Za. Lugbara phrases are spoken in several dialects (clan-wise) but the Muni Suburb (Ayivu) version, from which many of the explanations below are based, is the one approved for teaching in schools. It is also the main one used on UBC Radio, Voice Of Life, Arua One, Koboko FM, Nile FM, Radio Pacis plus BTN Television. The language has diphthong clusters and other noteworthy phonetics including the following:
a as in bat, for example onzuta-a
c as in church, for example Candiru (though can also be spelt Chandiru)
dj as in jilt, for example odji, the ‘d’ is silent
ee as in emblem, for example Andree
gb as in bend, for example gbe, the ‘g’ is silent. Gb in Lugbara is pronounced as Lubara. What stands out in Sudanic languages is the special manner in which 'b, c, 'd, dj, gb, kp, nz, 'w, 'y are pronounced.
i as in inn, for example di-i (also sometimes written as di'i) 
mv as in converse, for example omve
oa as in soar, for example ADROA
oo as in hold, for example ocoo, rarely oo as in food, for example ‘doo
u as in food, for example o'du
uu as in chew, for example cuu
z as in jean after n, for example onzi. Otherwise, most times remains z as in zebra, for example ozu and when the first letter of a word.

DREAMCAST: After Lugbara Translation Assignments from a number of People including foreign Missionaries plus non-Lugbara Ugandans like an Itesot named Sarah Ojirot (UDEWO) in 2011 when I bought my first Paperback Lugbara Dictionary, I asked a Google Executive from Germany who came to UG the following Year if Lugbara could be added to the advanced Google Translate Machine. He replied that he would forward my Concern to the relevant Office. I also posted a Request at Wikimedia for a Lugbara Wiktionary but there weren't enough Volunteer Editors as is the Requirement for the Project to hatch; a Lugbarapedia would be the eventual outcome. [West Nile Portal] announced that they were working on a Project of over 500 Lugbara Words but I could not find the draft PDF. Then a South Sudanese Acholi who is a huge Fan of my half Muganda, half Lugbara Tribesmate Jackie Chandiru plus other Artistes asked me to teach her Luganda so that she can understand the Lyrics in Ugandan Music; she speaks fluent Arabic but dislikes the upper Arabian Sudanese who tormented her People before Independence. On Saturday 26th November 2016 while checking out a Luganda Dictionary at, an Idea suggested itself to me that I should just create my own comprehensive One Page electronic Lugbara Dictionary and I snapped by researching in Lugbara-related internet Articles, Bibles, Brochures, Newspapers, Magazines, Recordings, my 2009 Edition Lugbara to English Dictionary, exclusively English Dictionaries plus asked various People including my Parents and Facebook Friends: What took me so long? Unlike Paperback, one Page is just enough to search for Lugbara Words instantly; Examples are my own Imagination. Mind your Language! I was not born in West Nile but since Y2K, my Goal has been to promote Lugbara Culture and West Nile Tourism. I learnt the Vocabulary in my Mother Tongue by listening to People especially Family speak plus Music but started reading its Literature seriously late having missed it as a Pupil in Busoga and Buganda; I was playing Catch-up in black and white. This Dictionary is dedicated to so many People but first and foremost to the linguistic Cynthia Letasi who made me believe in the 2000s that Lugbara is a very beautiful Language that can be grasped at any Age. Are you on the Move? Discover the Vocabulary in your Neighbourhood about Accomodation, Education, Entertainment, Food, Events, Health Facilities, etc from Mvara to Vurra, Andruvu to Arivu and beyond [Suburb2suburb]! According to UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation), "Languages Matter [Translated to Lugbara: Ti yi ma e'yo okporu]"! I have always had this Feeling that Lugbara was one of the Languages with which GOD confused Humans at the Tower of Babel [Genesis 11:1-9] unless it was invented later, only GOD knows! The ISO 639-3 Language Code for Lugbara is lgg while the Glottocode is lugb1240. E ka te ise osiza ma nga mi ti-a, mi te saa izu! [Translated from Lugbara: If you wait for fried Grasshoppers to fly into your Mouth, then you wait a long Time!] The quick, brown fox jumps over the lazy dog! Keep reading...
