Discern prophecy through God’s word: Dr. Z.Keyho

Drawing attention to a “prophecy” by a prayer group which warned that those who take the COVID vaccine will go to hell and widely circulated in social media, NBCC general secretary Rev. Dr. Zelhou Keyho advised believers against making a mockery of their faith.

Dr. Keyho made the remark prior to pronouncing the invocation prayer at the programme for launching the COVID-19 vaccine at the NHAK here Saturday. 

“We may have our doubts and apprehensions over the efficacy of the vaccine but we leave that to the experts”, Dr Keyho reiterated. He said the role of the Church was to pray that God will use the vaccine to bring protection to the community.

He exhorted the church for continued prayer as it has been doing for the last many months so that God would use the vaccine to protect lives.

Dr. Keyho said Nagas are confused because their faith has become situational. “We do not condemn anyone, nor do we endorse everything they say” he said while reminding that there is a Bible- the Word of God- to test every spirit.

“We believe in prophecy but we are also admonished by the Word of God to test every spirit”, Dr. Keyho reiterated. He also reminded that there was true and false prophecy then and even now but what was needed was God’s wisdom to discern right from wrong. However, he noted that lack of discernment was because “we are easily swayed away and get confused.”

Dr. Keyho said there was need to learn to discern things; not in one’s wisdom and restlessness, but through the word of God. He said salvation is sealed in the work of Christ on the cross and to say that “our salvation will be taken away because of a vaccination” was contrary to the Bible and in Christian faith.

He appealed for continued prayer for those infected and the sick under medical care as Nagaland needs healing. Dr. Keyho also appealed for prayer for God’s comfort to families who have lost their loved ones to the pandemic. “Let us not allow our faith to become a mockery” and prayed for God’s mercy and wisdom to discern the truth from falsehood.
