The Concert, Zion and Simba
The Concert, Zion and Simba
I went to this concert in 2008
A lady i was dating at the time
insisted we have to go together!
As soon as we got there it started
This lady had sickle cell disease!
Her mother called
"SO AND SO where are you?
She said "I am with Sammy!"
Her mother said she should give
me the phone! Trouble!
Her mother said "Sammy, you
must bring her back home intact
I am holding you responsible for
whatever happens to her!
Hmm! I suffered that night!
The rain was determined to embarrass
me before my future mother in law!
I took her to the tents
The tents were allocated to the vendors
who came with the intention of selling
stuff to the crowd
The rain had made most of them pack
up their goods
The tents we're flooded!
We found one meant for an ice cream
I sat on a freezer
She stood on my thighs all night
So that the water from the rising
flood wouldn't touch her feet
We saw people fainting everywhere
Ambulance and red cross folks were
kept busy all night!
I spoke in tongues for hours
Praying she wouldn't faint or catch cold
Neither of us was prepared for the rain
It had never rained during the concert
I had the experience of a lifetime
In the morning i left her in the tent
to get transportation to take us home
There was a long queue at the BRT
The buses too were queuing to pick
I begged BRT driver
To please open his door to pick us
He was on a queue but we couldn't
queue because of the rain.
The man had mercy
I got her on the BRT
We got to her house by 7AM
The way her father looked at me
Ha! I wanted to evaporate!
I was deemed irresponsible
I couldn't tell them she took me
She also left me to take the blame
like a knight in shiny armour
I didn't like that
I didn't want to go to the experience
But I took it on the chin '
The relationship died a few weeks later
It's core was killed at the experience
The body disintegrated soon after
I never went back
Funny thing was, the following year
she gave me a call
"Where are you" she asked me
I told her I was at home
watching the experience on TV
She laughed and said "I am at
the experience, I will never miss it"
I said "Wonderful!"
Text: Revelation 21:1 Now I saw a new
heaven and a new earth, for the first
heaven and the first earth had passed
away. Also there was no more sea.
2 Then I, John,[a] saw the holy city,
New Jerusalem, coming down out
of heaven from God, prepared as a
bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven
saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God
is with men, and He will dwell with them,
and they shall be His people.
God Himself will be with them and be
their God. 4 And God will wipe away every
tear from their eyes; there shall be no
more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.
There shall be no more pain, for the former
things have passed away.
5Then He who sat on the throne said,
“Behold, I make all things new.”
And He said to me, “Write, for these words
are true and faithful.” (NKJV)
Revelation 22: 1 And he showed me a
pure[a] river of water of life, clear as crystal,
proceeding from the throne of God and of
the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street,
and on either side of the river,was the
tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each
tree yielding its fruit every month.
The leaves of the tree were for the healing
of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more
curse, but the throne of God and of the
Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall
serve Him. 4They shall see His face, and
His name shall be on their foreheads.
5 There shall be no night there: They need
no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord
God gives them light. And they shall reign
forever and ever.
1. NO MORE SEA
Think of the ways that the sea can have a
natural and spiritual application:
-The sea separates
-The sea is unstable
-The sea is restless
2. NO MORE DEATH
Unless you are very young, doubtless you
have stood at the grave at the funeral of
someone you loved.
You experienced the pain that death brings
in separating us from our friends and loved
ones. But for the believer, the separation is
A few days before his death,
Dr. F. B. Meyer wrote a very dear friend
these words: "I have just heard, to my
great surprise, that I have but a few days to live.
It may be that before this reaches you,
I shall have entered the palace.
Don't trouble to write. We shall meet in
the morning." – Mrs. C. Cowman
NO MORE DEATH means these times of
being separated will end and life will
continue on eternally as we eat from the
tree of life.
3. NO MORE SORROW
Sorrow goes deep to the core when you
have to walk through it. It is an unbearable
weight. It is a gnawing pain that grips you
and shakes you till your bones hurt.
Sorrow is a condition of living in a fallen world.
Can you imagine an environment where sorrow,
regret, remorse and loss are no longer possible?
Wow! what a wonder of wonders.
Yet this is the reality that awaits the
saints of God.
4. NO MORE CRYING
This is the tears brought on by life's
losses and trials, by evil, by death….
and in Heaven and the New Earth, no crying
will occur. In some way, the cries that are
issuing out of hell will not be heard in the
place of the redeemed.
-Average times per month a woman cries:
5 Average times per month a man cries:
1 – Good Housekeeping, April 1997.
-Often when the hard times come the crying
comes, but then the hard times will cease
and the tears will disappear forever.
5. NO MORE PAIN
What things in life cause you to hurt?
Imagine walking through the ICU of a
children's hospital and seeing the agony.
Now, think of the awesome reality of
these three words with that picture in
your mind…NO MORE PAIN!
The things that cause you hurt in this
life now, will not do so then because
the tough times will be non-existent then.
6. NO MORE CURSE
Before the curse, there was only beauty,
only perfection, and life giving joy.
These things will be in abundant supply
in the place where the curse is no more.
Dear friend the power of the cross has
broken the power of the curse and its full
benefit is here with us
It is the tough times that demand that our
heart must hope in God
QUOTE: Hope means hoping when things
are hopeless, or it is no virtue at all…
As long as matters are really hopeful,
hope is mere flattery or platitude; it is only
when everything is hopeless that hope
begins to be a strength. – G.K. Chesterton,
Signs of the Times, April 1993
7. NO MORE NIGHT
Night will be no more due to the light,
the eternal light of God Himself and His
Christ will illuminate the place of the saved.
What glory that will be!
QUOTE– Death is not extinguishing the light
from the Christian; it is putting out the lamp
because the dawn has come. (UNKNOWN)
THE GOOD NEWS
You can dwell in Zion now if you desire
to do so!
You dont have to wait until you die and
go to heaven
You are a citizen of Zion now

You can live the no night, no pain, no sorrow
no death, no lack, no affliction life of Zion
From the day you became a Christian
Zion became your country!
On earth, you are an ambassador
of Zion to the sons of men!
Welcome to Zion!
His name was simba, but he was the
express image of Mufasa.
He was like us, born into royalty,
son of the King.
He was threatened with accusations.
Battling with guilt, he left pride rock.
Exactly what Scar wanted.
Into the bushes he went and Scar ruled
over pride rock.
Simba's territory, Simba's platform.
The land was full of evil since scar ruled.
Famine, drought and pain.
The hyenas took over the den of lions.
Their cries probably ascended and
Mufasa was probably touched.
The only way they could be salvaged
was if Simba took his place.
But how can he?
When he doesn't know who he is?
And so destiny started to play out.
Lala found him and tried to remind him
of who he was.
He didn't accept or even believe
he was the heir.
Until the monkey came and guided Simba
into his identity.
He told Simba his father wasn't up there,
his father wasn't dead.
His father was alive.
And told him to look in the water.
When he looked in the water he saw
his reflection, when he looked harder
he saw someone else that looked
just like him.
His father wasn't dead, his father
lives in him.
Father : Simba, you've forgotten me.
Simba : No, never.
Father : You've forgotten who you are so
you've forgotten me.
Remember who you are.
And that was it, he knew who he
was and ran back to take his place.........
Lack of the knowledge of our identity
and the will to act is the foundations for
many misfortunes on earth.
Lack of knowledge of our identity and
the will the act is the foundation for
many of our misfortunes on earth..
He went to pride rock, dethroned Scar
and got back his land.
He was king.
And the voice came again "REMEMBER"
and he roared. Yes, that's it.
His soul was starting to resonate with
who he was.
The knowledge of who we are,
who God has made us is Essential.
It is here we understand our authority.
Territories, creation and our loved ones
will continue to be in darkness unless
He'll fight us, the enemy will fight us.
With mental monsters, such as fear,
guilt, depression, anxiety, worry.
Just to bring you to a place where you
lose sight of your authority.
So he can sit on spheres and
He makes you lose sight of destiny,
so fight busyness, fight accusations.
The world told us that "we all have
demons in our head, we just have
to learn to live with them" but no,
here, we cast them out.
Out of our minds, out of the systems
of our lives.
If you refuse to, men will suffer too.
Creation waits, creation waits.
Renew your mind.
Everything you need to stand is what
God has made you. BEHOLD IT.
Rise and enact zion's civilization on earth.
Scar only did something to Simba's mind
and that was it.
Guard your mind and behold your identity.'
He lives in you, Remember.
This is why when the Holy Ghost comes
if you pay attention to him he ushers
you into LIGHT.
Just as they looked at Simba and called him
Mufasa they'll look at you and call you Christ.
You glorify him.
He came to their aid through you.
He's alive in you. - Danielle Fidelis
