It seems surreal the news broadcast that the world has unfortunately had to experience, making it as if everything has been tunred to an obituary monologue. With Covid, we have lost many around the globe but we’ve also had to bear with the loss of people that didn’t seem to be sickly or departing from this world.
Haitian President Jovenel Moise adds to the growing number of icons and personalities of the world that have departed from this life, due to various reasons as diverse as you could count. We can cite Kobe Bryant, Prince Phillip of England, Larry King and so many more who are no longer among the living and it’s a phenomenon that touches everyone, regardless of their status of prestige they hold.
However, the death of Haiti’s president was not due to mere natural circumstances. He was assassinated at his residence at night and nobody could do a thing about it. A leaked footage reveals foreign elements speaking in english in what conclusively leads to brand the assassination as a well-planned raid against the presidential couple. Who orchestrated it? Who commanded it? Those are questions that remain to be answered, albeit the arrests of individuals suspected of involvement in the crime
According to AL Jazeera, the wife of assassinated Haitian President Jovenel Moise spoke from the Rehab center where she remains under intense medical surveillance due to her critical injuries, and said the attack that killed her husband happened “in the blink of an eye”.
In an audio message posted on her official Twitter account on Saturday, Martine Moise called on Haiti not to “lose its way” after the attack that left her critically injured. “In the blink of an eye, the mercenaries entered my home and riddled my husband with bullets … without even giving him a chance to say a word,” she said in the audio message.
What sad and emotional words indeed. We cannot help but empathize with the loss of a human being, a husband an a father. Though we hope that justice will be done, the word of God also states nothing happens without God notifying his servants the prophets (Amos 3:7). The emphasis here is on the word ‘nothing’. Indeed, few months prior to these events, Bishop Innocent Rugagi of Redeemed Gospel Church in Canada prophesied the world will plunge in turmoil at the hearing of sad news of the trespass of many around the world; Bishop Rugagi also narrowed down the prophecy and said that world leaders, all around the globe, will die and the world will see it.
That’s what we call accuracy in the most literal sense of the word. Nevertheless, one would wonder the reason why God would allow this to happen. In the footage that highlights the prophecy, Bishop Rugagi says these events will occur to some because they weary of the words they uttered, hence divine judgement will be passed upon them. He goes on to caution everyone to be weary and controlled in their speech along with the words chosen to express whatever it is that needs to be expressed.
In another footage, Bishop Innocent Rugagi clearly pinpoints Haitian as the next country to lose an important political figure and the events will be shock that will resonate throughout the world. It is undeniable that the sharpness of these prophecies, few months they actually occur are an evidence that our belief system should point to nothing else but to God who knows the season and the time for everything. To one who searches the truth fervently, the word of God says God will let himself be found by those (Isaiah 65:1). The question then is to know what lies ahead of us.
