Revival churches and God, here is the truth that will set us free.
- Historical reminder: the recourse to authenticity.
In October 1971, when the MPR, political party of the late President Mobutu and Mr. Tshisekedi, decreed the recourse to authenticity and the abandonment of our Christian names, it opened our eyes and an indescribable effervescence seized us at the prospect of finding us new first names. I was then a student at the De la Salle Institute of Tumba in the Central Kongo where I was a boarder. That year, I had just left the Saint Alphonsus College of Mangembo on the advice of Father Director who thought it right for me to continue my studies in the Maths-Physics section rather than the Psycho-Pedagogy, the only option offered by the college of Mangembo, which conditioned my life course and for which I am still very grateful to him to this day. Following this decision by the MPR Political Bureau, I think that we were given a period of time to definitively abandon our old first names and find us new ones, I don’t remember if we had to consult our parents by mail (I would point out that at the time the post office was working very well in Congo and the mobile phone did not exist) or if we had to wait for the next Christmas holiday for that. The fact remains that this decision acted on us as a revealer, all of a sudden we realized the ridiculousness of our Christian names and, once we each had our new first name, in the playgrounds, our favorite game was to make fun of each other by calling us by the names we just abandoned, so we could hear Marcel, Nicodemus, Vital, Joseph, Alphonse, Hyppolite or any other name that came to mind, a little like what happens in the video of Zaïko Langa Langa’s 18th birthday between Papa Wemba and his friends when they made fun of their old names. The recourse to authenticity, which was a good inspiration and which should have to be the starting point of our process of spiritual liberation, unfortunately, did not last long and was not pursued as it should have been. A few years later, the old reflexes came back and the Congolese found a way to circumvent it by inventing new European-sounding first names for their offspring, often influenced by the revival churches which had made their appearance. The departure of President Mobutu did not help matters, almost all the Congolese have recovered their former first name which is now written on their identity papers when these exist, I myself had to recover mine on the occasion of my naturalization in 1980, but it was only to conform to the habits and customs of France and better integrate myself in this new country of adoption. I hope that in the very near future, after the lighting that I am giving you today, the eyes of our people will finally open and that we will be able to make the real break in order to rediscover our true spirituality that will allow us to get involved in the development process that resembles us.
- The European invasion, the end of an African spirituality.
In 1482, the arrival of the Portuguese navigators marked the interruption of our development in a field where we were very advanced, that of spirituality. Our ancestors had to face European invaders with their armies of missionaries whose mission was to make a clean sweep of our knowledge and practices in order to better enslave us, this despite the resistance of people like Yaya Vita Kimpa that everyone idolizes today while they are ready to burn Yaya Kuyalu Bakembisa who today is waging a similar fight for the rehabilitation of our ancestral spirituality. The European missionaries therefore imposed on us their Bible with which they have taught us all those things which today turn out to be nonsense worthy of children’s tales. Beginning with the story of the creation of the world which taught us that after creating heaven and earth, God used clay to create the first man before taking a rib away from him to create the first woman. According to this history we would all be the descendants of that couple, but we know since that we are not from a succession of incest but that we are the result of successive evolutions crossing different species whose point of departure known to date is the “Big Bang”. When we were children, we were taught in the catechism that God resided in the sky above the clouds. As we grew up, we realized with the appearance of planes and rockets that they could cross clouds without finding themselves in paradise, we even witnessed man’s first journey on the moon and with what we know today about space, no one can locate the paradise in the sky anymore. Like children who find out as they grow up that Santa Claus does not exist, we now know that everything we were told was just wonderful stories to make us believe certain things which have nothing to do with the real truth. And we could continue in this way with many other examples that we are not going to quote here that have alienated the minds of African peoples during centuries of colonization to the point that today they have become worse than the Europeans who initiated them into the Bible, but as we have just celebrated the Ascension of Jesus Christ, I cannot help but say a word. First, he ascended to heaven with his body, yet the body is not an attribute of the Hereafter, that is a first absurdity. On the other hand, if his disciples saw him ascending, that is because he did so at a speed observable with the human eye, and if his destination was an exoplanet, knowing that it should be at least a few hundred light years away, this would mean, according to our current knowledge and assuming a speed perceptible to the naked eye, that his journey would last several thousand, even several million years, in which case he would still not have reached his destination and that in addition he would have to arrive there completely frozen, which shows the absurdity of this story that could be conceived when we thought that paradise was located behind the clouds but that becomes unlikely with our current knowledge, so what really happened ? That’s the question !
We must never lose sight of the fact that the Bible was written by men as I can do today, they were probably inspired, but apart from what can be considered as testimonies of a lived experience, everything else is only an interpretation in accordance with the knowledge of the time. As for Jesus Christ, son of God, that is surely true, but he is only the child of the gods of his people circumscribed to his native land of Israel, that is to say, he is one of the great spirits who watch over this people as Mfumu Kimbangu is for the Kongo people in particular and Black Africans in general, because if Jesus was sent for the whole world, he would not have stopped in the Middle East, he would probably have traveled at least all of Europe and Asia before going to Africa, America and Oceania, now I don’t think he was aware of the existence of all these lands and their occupants, which is the height of shame for a son of God. Jesus of Nazareth never referred to the Indians of America or the Papuans of the Pacific, he never left the territory of his own people whom he came to liberate and he never went either in flesh or in spirit elsewhere than to his native land as Mfumu Kimbangu did, him who in spite of his imprisonment had time to visit all of Black Africa, which he was responsible for saving to deliver his message of liberation, the truth is that one only takes the risk of sacrificing one’s life only to save one’s own people. The missionaries also taught us that God was an old white man with a long white beard who lives seated on his throne in heaven surrounded by his son and the Holy Spirit in the care of his angels, watching the world at his feet, I am willing to bet that this image is still firmly rooted in the brains of every Congolese or African and that if we ask each of them to say how they imagine God, it would be almost impossible to find one who sees God looking like his old grandfather with or without a beard, Verckys Kiamuangana from this point of view did not succeed in making things happen with his song “Nakomitunaka“, but let us reassure ourselves, God has no human attribute as we are going to demonstrate it below.
- The truth about God and the relevance of ancestral knowledge.
To explain who God is, let us refer to what we know. How would we define the State? We would say that the State is a set of people living in a given territory and subject to a given government, it is governed by a set of laws and rules under the control of an administration. How would we define the international community? The international community, which can vary according to circumstances, is a group of states often united by common interests to express themselves on a given subject. As a general rule, the international community is represented by the United Nations led by its Secretary-General and operates according to a number of rules applied and controlled by its administration. These two examples refer to entities that can be assimilated to legal persons without a known face and to which individuals or states are called upon to submit under penalty of suffering the consequences. Well, God is the same, we will say that God is a spiritual entity that is present in all the components of the Universe and the Hereafter in which it is distributed in an unequal way and which interact with each other according to well-established rules and laws. Like white light which is composed of three primary colors, God rests on three main components which are Love, Intelligence and Power and which are distributed in a differentiated way according to each element of this divine entity. Love and Intelligence are the attributes of all living beings whose human beings, located at the top, have inherited the greatest part that allows them to live in harmony and above all to continue God’s work of creation, the Power above all characterizes the material elements by which God can bring about great transformations or crack down in times of need. If we consider all the raw materials and the multitude of natural resources which our country is endowed, we can say that our country is a great divine power, it is therefore time that every child of this country can benefit from it. On the other hand, we know that thanks to his “Intelligence” component, God is omniscient because he knows everything, thanks to his “Power” component, God is omnipotent and because he is present in every element of the Universe and the Hereafter, God is omnipresent.
When we examine the different names that our ancestors attributed to God, we can conclude that our ancestors were well inspired because these names all include the three attributes, that is the case with the Kongo people who called him Nzambi ya Mpungu Tulendo which means God of the Universe who is Almighty, Omnipresent and Omniscient. I do not know all the names that were used by all the African peoples to designate God, but I am willing to bet that they all referred to these three attributes and that their God was attached to the world or to the Universe that surrounded them, it being understood that the world was limited to their territory and the Universe to what they saw when looking up at the sky. With the definition we have just given, God is for each people an entity comparable to a state that includes all that exists in its territory as well as in the Hereafter linked to this people. But if the God of a people is comparable to a state, who is its leader ? And who are his ministers ? At the top of this entity are the Great Spirits residing at the higher level that I mentioned in my previous article (“Revival churches, a check to development”), there we find the head of the entity surrounded by his ministers. On the lower level, we find all the spirits who play the role of guardian angels and those who are in transit before their return to earth or those who are banished. Leaving the Hereafter, we find ourselves on earth where we find in the hierarchical order the “ngunza” and the customary chiefs who share the spiritual and political roles at the head of the people and the different tribes that constitute it, they provide the link between the government of the Great Spirits and the people of the living, that is why, more than ever, the rehabilitation of the customary chiefs is indispensable, not only politically for the recovery of our sovereignty as I described in my “Open Letter to the Congolese People” but also on the spiritual level to restore the appropriate conditions for the start of a real development in conformity with what we are.
Thus defined, we can conclude that God has no face and that if the representation that the colonists made of him turns out to be childish, the knowledge that our ancestors had of him was much more adult and their spirituality much more evolved. This is so true that I wonder whether the sorcerers as we know them at home exist in Europe, no ! The proof if there is of the ignorance of this subject by the Europeans is that Hollywood which is so quick to deal all the subjects did never treat this one, it is the proof that we were ahead of the Europeans in the spiritual field. After getting in contact with our ancestors and studying them well, they realized this and, as they thought they were the superior people, in order not to let themselves be dominated in this matter, they devised a way to make them renounce their science. With the Bible in one hand and the rifle in the other, they undertook to make them believe that their science and the rites associated with it were satanic, a bit as if the pioneers of space conquest had been asked to stop their work so as not to violate God’s residence behind the clouds, which would have prevented us from developing our knowledge of space, this is how the colonists succeeded in making us renounce our spiritual knowledge and rites. Moreover, they did not stop there, throughout the centuries they continued their work of destruction by systematically denigrating our specific gifts, which they managed to make us think of as flaws and, when they could not do so, they invented subterfuges to hide their weaknesses by also promoting them to make us admit that they are worth as much if not better than our gifts, all in the name of their so-called superiority. This is all the more so since the Bible has made things much easier for them, because if those who wrote it probably did not think evil, those who taught us it used it to their advantage to inculcate in the Blacks that we are all these harebrained ideas whose only objective was to better enslave us, and there is every reason to believe that the inferiority complex from which many blacks suffer towards whites comes from the fact that they were taught that God was white in the image of his so-called son. Knowing that when you adore someone, you tend to adore their loved ones as well as all those who look like them, knowing that you always place yourself below the one you adore while you put them on a pedestal, so, you see where the problem comes from ! But now, with the revelations I have just made to you, you know that God has no color, nevertheless, each people has their own gods who are the Great Spirits who watch over them and who resemble them.
Our ancestors, who mastered this science that we now call witchcraft which is simply synonymous with great knowledge and which enabled them to communicate with the Hereafter, had to renounce it under the pressure of the missionaries, the only ones who kept it to practice it in secret used it most of the time to do evil because the majority of those who could use it to do good had decided to renounce it by converting to Christianity. I think that our ancestors decided to get us out of our mental alienation to rehabilitate this science in which we were so good and which favoured us compared with the other peoples, that is the meaning of the inspiration given to me for the design of this device that would allow us to communicate with the Hereafter. So do not think that it is madness to dare to imagine such a project, because if tomorrow it falls into the ears of a Western firm with large means to be able to bring it to fruition, you’ll be the first to marvel at the witchcraft of the white people when there’s nothing hard about it, because as I often say, for an adult, creation is child’s play practiced with adult knowledge, it was enough simply to think about it and more precisely to be well inspired. Now, I could have kept this project secret until it was completed, but I had to talk about it to explain some things better and at the same time to encourage potential investors to get involved in it, given the size of the funds it requires, hoping that our advance in this area will be sufficient and that ours will not be corrupted to sell their secrets to strangers as happened with regard to our traditional medicine.
- God and us, our relationship with God.
That being said, how does God act on us? As human beings endowed with a conscience that allows us to distinguish good from evil, we are solely responsible for our actions and conduct in life. The good we do allows us to load our body into positive energy while the evil we do charge it into negative energy, that is this positive or negative energy we accumulate which, in the presence of other creatures or receptacles of divine energy, will interact with them to cause positive or negative phenomena that may resemble rewards or punishments and that we can attribute to that entity we call God. Positive energy, besides the fact that it attracts good influences to us, acts in our life as the vaccine acts in our body, it protects us from bad influences while negative energy, comparable to immunodeficiency, produces exactly the opposite effect. In the same way, when we collectively indulge in evil or when we behave badly towards other elements that are the seat of God, whether they are human, animal, vegetable or mineral, we must expect to suffer the consequences, which means that the ecology that advocates respect for nature and the environment should leave the political field to become part of our obligations to God, for the love of nature and its preservation as well as the love of neighbour all contribute to the love of God. Thus, a person who, like Nicolas Hulot in France, invests his life in the preservation of nature and the environment must be placed on the same level as a Mother Teresa who dedicated her life to helping other men.
When we say that God rewards us or punishes us, it is indeed this God who, as an entity, acts through the different elements that make him up, that is why we do not necessarily need to wait to pass into the afterlife to be punished because everything is paid for here below, even if after our death a sanction of another nature can wait for us according to the results of our life on earth. When something good happens to us, we owe it to our behaviour, and if we have to thank God, it is not God as an entity that we have to thank, but God through the spirits who accompany us in our life and assist us in our daily choices as it happens with the navigation system when we drive our car. In the particular case of a miraculous healing, it is the positive energy accumulated through our behaviour that will act in conjunction with the energy from the Great Spirit that we invoke to bring about this miracle, with our unshakeable faith in this Spirit as a catalyst, in Catholics this Spirit can be a Saint or Jesus himself. The positive or negative energies that a person accumulates permeate his body both inside and outside, everything that touches this body is impregnated, this is the case of his house and particularly his bedroom or his clothes and especially his underwear, so our women should be wary of the human hair they wear and whose source they ignore, the same is true for the organs in case of transplantation. These energies are also transmitted to one’s descendants during their conception, which gives credence to the thesis that a curse can pass through several generations.
According to the definition we have just revealed to you, God can be seen from two different angles, there is the universal God whom we can compare to the UN and who encompasses the whole Universe, and there is the local God or God of the people, comparable to the State, who encompasses the land to which this people is attached as well as all that lives there. When we pray to God, we are actually addressing the Great Spirits who constitute the government of this entity, each people has their own and the one we call Jesus is not part of ours, unlike Mfumu Kimbangu. Thus, in our relationship with God, in relation to our practices inherited from the imposed religions, we will continue to pray as we have always done, but this time by addressing our prayers to the right recipients, we will continue to sing but also by making sure to mention their true recipients who are called to assist us, we will continue to work in order to pursue God’s creative work and to improve the living conditions of humanity as well as nature in a preserved environment. As our ancestors did, we must get into the habit of thanking God who nourishes and cares for us through the elements of nature and the environment that are animals, plants, water and air which are all the seat of this God. When it comes to worship, our environment offers us a multitude of opportunities to praise his greatness through everything that exists and that shows his presence among us. Thus, we can climb to the top of a mountain to admire the magnificence of God, we can dive into the middle of the desert or the sea to realize that we are only a tiny part of its immenseness, in the dark night we can marvel at the celestial spectacle that makes us aware of the diversity of God through this Universe and the tiny part that our planet occupies into it, we can also, in a walk in the forest, appreciate the wonderful symphony produced through its residents by this God who surrounds us and accompanies us wherever we are. Through these and many other examples we can praise and give thanks to God, in any case our ancestors knew it and were already doing it, which is why they practiced animism and were so respectful of the environment because they knew that the spirit of God resided there, which confirms that they were ahead of the Bible holders from Europe.
Under these conditions, it turns out that the tithe that is at the root of the proliferation of revival churches is only the invention of a brilliant crook who made a dishonest interpretation of the Bible in order to be able to live at the expense of the faithful he attracted by taking them from a part of their income where even the State responsible for protecting them is careful not to tax the poorest among them, it is to this find that many other crooks attracted by the manna that it represented clung to achieve the result we know today. The time has therefore come for each of us to separate ourselves from all that hindered us until now in order to enter our process of disalienation that will free us. As far as I am concerned, I had to resolve to put away my rosary as a Catholic believer in order to fully open myself to the spirits of our ancestors. The time has also come to definitively get rid of our imported names, for to bear a name that has no meaning in our culture is like carrying a load that has no value, unlike an authentic name that carries an energy charge and keeps us connected to our ancestors. As for witchcraft so denounced by the revival churches, it is not because only the evil uses of this science have resisted the indoctrination of imported religions that we must refrain from finding our ancestral knowledge, because what is the action of this sorcery worth compared to that of our invaders who use all the sciences supposedly authorized by the religion to create weapons of mass destruction that have caused millions of deaths throughout the world ! Our witchcraft did not have only bad sides, and like any science, it could be used as well for doing good as for doing evil, and we must do everything we can to rehabilitate this science that our ancestors mastered in order to use it to develop in our own way.
- The will of the Gods for our people.
In my previous article, I told you that my next research topic was to create a device that would allow us to communicate with the Hereafter, I think that the fact of having accepted this mission with enthusiasm has opened the way for me to other revelations. As I said above, the Kongo people and probably many other African peoples were very advanced in spiritual knowledge, had it not been the interruption due to colonization with the contribution of the Bible, they would have already succeeded in making concrete this means of communication, the realization of which has been entrusted to me to allow the course of our history to resume where it had been interrupted, that is why so much information reaches me that I try to restore you after formatting them. But what happens to me is not exceptional, that happens to everyone to receive messages from the Hereafter, but when we receive them, we either do not pay attention to them and they are lost, or we receive them but we do not have enough knowledge to interpret them, or we manage to interpret them but we attribute them to a wrong source. In this case, their interpretation often depends on the state of our knowledge and state of mind of the moment in a given environment, so people who represented God in an old white man probably did not know that there were men of another colour on earth. As far as I am concerned, if until then I was more used to receiving signs from my guardian angels, this time I felt that the source had changed and that the messages I was receiving came from the higher level given the importance of the mission I had to accomplish for the spiritual and political liberation of our people. It all started when I was thinking about the ways and means to get out of the occupation and the solutions that would then allow us to regain our sovereignty, it was then that after hearing Mr BOKOMBA Kassa-Kassa’s words about the rehabilitation of customary power, I had the click that led me to the project that I outlined in the “Open Letter to the Congolese People” (which is accessible in French on this website). This article was originally intended to contain a paragraph on the damage caused by the revival churches in our society and the resolutions we were to make about them as a part of the rebuilding of our country, but given its length and especially not to jumble up the main message it contained concerning the rehabilitation of customary power, I decided to make it a separate article. It was while writing this other article that I began to have revelations about the messages I had to convey to fight all the pernicious ideas propagated by them to stultify and enslave the Congolese people in particular and African people in general, each of these messages raised other questions that in turn led to other revelations. These messages, I received them in small bursts, at any time, often at night, and I hastened to note them so as not to lose a crumb, it lasted like this for a few weeks and, once I had gathered enough information, all I had to do was process them and put them together like pieces of a puzzle to arrive at this article that I recently presented to you, which is entitled “Revival churches, a check to development”. As much as I felt great pressure on myself until I had finished writing it, so much at the end I felt so calm that I told myself that I had fulfilled my mission. But it didn’t stop there, as soon as I had finished that article and published it, my mind started to wander towards new questions about the true nature of God and that’s when the answer appeared to me as in an open book, it was given to me so that I could make it available to you, because if I asked myself the question, others too had to ask it to themselves following my article, the Great Spirits among our ancestors saw fit to clarify certain things in order to close this matter and thus better prepare mentally the Congolese people and by extension the African people to be able to make a new start, this is the subject of this article which I hope will be the last of the series because it consumes a lot of psychic energy and it is time that I return to devote myself to my usual activity, research. Now that we know the truth and as I have just said above, the time has come for us to really enter the process of disalienation in order to rediscover our spirituality that will bring us closer to the spirits of our ancestors. Nevertheless, I know that it will not be easy, because the indoctrination we have undergone since our childhood is very deep-rooted, that is the need for the creation of that device of communication with the Hereafter, because it will help us to more easily clear the minds of all the current generations that have been seriously corrupted, which would otherwise require several years.
- Resolutions for a new start.
In conclusion, I think that the Great Spirits of our people have decided to make a clean sweep of colonization in order to begin a new era that will see our country develop according to our culture, they have decided to use me to clarify things in order to lay the foundations for a new start of our country. To do this, we had to first solve the puzzle of truth that would help us become aware of our alienation in order to begin the work of cleansing our minds. With the many questions, this seemed to me to be like solving an equation with several unknowns and, for me who am a scientist and therefore rather Cartesian, I find that the solution that came out of it is of an implacable logic, it remains for the detractors to demonstrate the opposite. With this insight, we no longer have any reason to doubt the merits of the project that I presented to you in the “Open Letter to the Congolese People” and more than ever, it is time to start implementing it. I, as a researcher, will be busy carrying out the noble mission entrusted to me, so I will not be available to take care of it personally, so if there is an intelligent and farsighted politician who puts the best interests of the nation above his own and who aspires to play a leading role in the conduct of our country, rather than remain caught up in rearguard fights for the organization of elections alongside foreigners in an occupied country, this is an opportunity for him to stand out by taking this project and carrying it to its conclusion, for I can assure you that the one who will contribute to its success will be blessed by our ancestors and that a special place will be reserved for him in the history of our country. Besides, I have no doubt that the people will support him and will be very grateful to him. I would like to reaffirm here that the rehabilitation of customary power is the only way for us to regain our true sovereignty and to get ourselves involved on a path of development that resembles us. A word to the wise is enough !

Article written in May 2016 Translated in July 2020
In addition to this article, I have one last revelation for you.
I’m going to tell you something that happened to me on the night of July 1 to 2 of this year (2016). That night, around 3:00 a. m., I woke up with a start after having a strange dream. In that dream, I was witnessing the arrest or rescue, I can’t specify it, of a white man of a certain age looking like Santa Claus by a group of gendarmes, he was immersed in water up to the torso at the edge of a river located in a wood somewhere in France and didn’t want to leave it. I was hidden behind the foliage of the trees while watching the scene from afar, when the gendarmes tried to force him out, he struggled while shouting in a language unknown to him and as the gendarmes obviously did not understand him, they took him for a madman. As I was the only one around who could understand this language, which I have not used for ages, I knew then that these words were intended for me, he said this : “Bana ba Kongo, ntangu yifueni yi lufueti baka kimfumu kia Nza, ntangu yifueni ! Mono Kimpa Vita ngieti kuluzayisa, bana ba Kongo lukubama muyala Nza”. He repeated it twice and I heard it so distinctly that that woke me up, my heart pounding as if I had just experienced a nightmare, so I hastened to note this message which I considered important considering the circumstances and because it was delivered by a person who was supposed not to know that language. In the morning, I thought that dream was just related to what I had already written in my articles, except that later in the day I came across two Facebook pages that reminded me that this was the date of Yaya Vita Kimpa’s death, I then thought this message was much more important than I thought, which is why I wanted to give it to you as it is, even though I had not yet decoded its full meaning.
For those who do not understand the Kikongo language, here is the translation of the message: “Children of Kongo, the time has come to take the leadership of the world, the time has come ! I, Vita Kimpa, announce to you, children of Kongo, prepare yourselves to rule the world”. Is this Kimbangu’s prophecy that is about to begin ? In any case, if we appropriate back our spirituality, it will not be long before it is realized.
