Kenyan jazz musician Nimrod Onyango Omondi, popularly known as Joseph Hellon has started a new church called Kingdom Embassy International.
Hellon was initially known as the founder of Finger Of God church, where former television and radio presenter Esther Arunga met Quincy Timberlake, a co-founder of Placenta Party.
Since then, Arunga’s life would never be the same again. In the following years marred by controversy, she sold her assets, quit her job and even threatened to sue her parents.
She later left the country with her husband and several months down the line, she wound up in court fighting for her freedom following the strange death of their son who died under complicated circumstances.
On his church’s Facebook bio, Hellon boasts of his ability to tangibly demonstrate God’s power.
“Kingdom Embassy International church preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ with tangible demonstrations of God’s power. Miracles are the order of the day with us. The atmosphere is that of love and acceptance where everyone is encouraged and empowered.”
In one of the posts on the page, the man who once contemplated going for the country’s top seat shares a sermon encouraging his followers to discern when God visits them.
“Most people pray and seek God’s word concerning their future and the success thereof but when the answer comes, they fail to recognize it. They continue suffering because they lacked discernment and never knew the day of their visitation.
The Pharisees were looking forward to the coming of the Messiah. When he came, they rejected him. He didn’t appear in the way their mindsets were programmed. Never be like that. Pray for your eyes to open so as to see your saviours. They may not look, dress, sound or even act the way you like but listen to their words and you’ll succeed.”
