THE CALLING OF “AROTI”
Jusufu Ng’ang’a was the first “muroti” to be called by God in Kenya. He was born in the year 1881 in Gatundu village. He was called and filled by the Holy Spirit in the year 1922.
- HIS WORK
Jusufu Ng’ang’a was a skilled quarry worker from “Ambui” clan and extended “Magana” family. God had told him that he had to die for the sake of Kenya as a country but more so for the “Aroti” church.
After the calling of Jusufu Ng’ang’a, his was ordained for God’s work with two other men namely; John Mung’ara and Samuel Muinami. They were then sent to Ngabuiya village to pray for and ordain Musa Thuo wa Chege, anointed him and dressed him in a “Naibera”.
- FILLED WITH MIGHT AND THE HOLY SPIRIT
Jusufu Ng’ang’a had been ordained and filled so much with the Holy Spirit such that when he was praying or singing his feet stuck to the ground to a point that he had to be “uprooted” because of the power and might of the Holy Spirit. Most of the times he travelled he was seen “accompanied” by seven angels. In Kandara village people experienced the mighty work of God through him.
- MORE AND MORE DREAMS AND VISIONS
Long before Jusufu Ng’ang’a was called and ordained by God, dreamers had dreamt a lot that when the Whites (Colonizers) start seeing locals tying head scarfs (turban) then they should know that that country will not be theirs anymore. Those dreams and visions were dreamt and foreseen by a woman residing abroad. The Whites kept on waiting for that prophesy to pass and it definitely came to pass in the year 1930 because it was the year that more and more “Aroti” arose in Kenya.
The three men were then sent to the house of Makumi to ordain his son Samueli Thuku wa Gathumuri. They had been told to accept develop the church and had been ordained to pray for our country Kenya.
- MORE FOLLOWERS…
When the Whites saw to it that the Aroti are becoming more and more each day, they planned on ways of eliminating them entirely. They first settled on and planned the killing of the first three namely; Jusufu Ng’ang’a, John Mung’ara and Samueli Muinami.
- DEEP IN PRAYERS, THEY MET THEIR DEATH
In the year 1934, the Whites found them in the valleys of River Ndarugo at nine in the morning. They were shot altogether. The last to die was Jusufu Ng’ang’a because he died at 3 P.M. Before he died he sang the song “Nyumiriirwo ni mugambo umiite iguru”.
- A FEW LEFT…
After the death of the first three, Musa Thuo and Samueli Thuku remained strong. The preached amidst rebellion and great difficulties and many people were ordained to become “Aroti” through the Holy Spirit. In those days many of them were greatly used by the Holy Spirit and made it possible for them to convert many who in turn wore white turbans. The Whites were very much irritated by this but through the power of God; the good work of the Lord prevailed. Samueli Thuku was the first “Muroti” to have a wedding ceremony according to how the Lord had revealed to them through the Holy Spirit.
- GOD’S WARNING
God warned the Aroti against taking medication because the Whites were the medics and could intentionally kill the Aroti by administering wrong dosage. Even the children of Aroti were told not to attend schools for they could be vaccinated with wrong medicines because the Whites were the doctors and teachers.
- INDIPENDENCE OF KENYA – CHURCH DIVISION
After Kenya gained its independence, many Aroti separated and denounced Musa Thuo especially in 1964 because he started mobilizing Aroti to start taking medication and take their children to school. His move was very wise and Godly because the Whites had stopped ruling. Musa Thuo was framed that he had allegedly joined the Kikuyu Central Association.
- MUSA THUO – CHURCH DIVISION
When Musa Thuo mobilized Aroti to start going to hospitals and schools, fellow leaders defected starting with Joshua Mburu, Samueli Thuku, Jeremiah Mutu, Jasani Kanini, Henry Maina, Isaiya Kirika, Joseph Mburu and Daniel Nduti.
After defection, Joshua Mburu, Jasani Kanini and Samueli Thuku each formed his own denomination namely Kiratina, Kamukabi and Kahiriga respectively.
- MUSA THUO SENT BY GOD
Musa Thuo was sent by God to bring together all those who had defected and that all their denominations to be merged. When he requested the defectors so, they refused, rebuked him and tarnished Musa Thuo’s name.
- BROUGHT TOGETHER BY GOD
God lastly brought together all the defectors and Musa Thuo in the home of Samueli Thuku in the year 1972. Two leaders were missing and they were Joshua Mburu and Hezron Thumbi.
A man by the name Obed Gucu had a vision of the string of a guiter dropping from above because the leaders refused to come to a conclusion and merge. Obed Gucu was the first to die that very year 1972, followed by Musa Thuo who died in 1975, Joshua Mburu died in 1979 and they went on dying. Samueli Thuku died in 1980 and Jeremiah Mutu died recently in 1995.
- MUSA THUO’S HOUSE PROTECTED
From the day Musa Thuo died the house he was living in at the Kaguthi church headquarters has never been entered or opened by anyone till today. A swarm of bees reside at the door and they put off anyone who tries to access the house.
- ENTRANCE TRIALS
There have been instances where several people, due to curiosity, who has tried to access the house bit end up killed by lightning and thunderstorms. A man by the name Jackson went with fire to chase away the bees but he was chased away by lightning and thunderstorms. A man by the name Johana went with smoke to drive away the bees so as to enter and see what is kept inside the house. At that particular moment the voice of the Lord said that he (Johana) has killed the solders of God and because of that four of his children had to die. And before the morning reached, for of his children were dead.
A little later a false prophet came claiming that he is God sent to enter the house of Musa Thuo but he never succeeded for he was chased away by lightning and thunderstorms. Musa Thuo’s house amazes many Aroti and no one knows what resides within.
- BROUGHT TOGETHER BY GOD AGAIN
In the year 1974, God brought together all the leaders at the home of Jeremiah Mutu in Giitura Village Murang’a. God revealed to Peter Kigera wa Kuria from Kangima Ihigaiini village that “this kingdom” has been given to a small tribe and that God does not want to be persuaded by prayer. When morning came all the men took their bags and left. The leaders who were revealed the way of wearing turbans were Phillip M. Mukubwa, Jasani Kanini, Henry Maina and Lilian Njeri. In the year 1927 is when they had been told to climb M.T Kenya as they came from the home of Jeremiah Mutu where Joshua Mburu was living who lead Kiratina.
- CLIMBING M.T KENYA
As they headed for M.T Kenya, Njeri was told by the Holy Spirit of God to remove all their earrings, necklaces and rings and throw them in River Nyamindi.
- PRAYER MOMENTS
The Holy Spirit told them not to close their eyes during prayer. Before they reached the mountain they had prayed a total number of fourteen times. That is where they were told that during prayer men should raise up their hands whereas women position their hand in a receiving manner.
- ANGELS SPOTTED
As they progressed with the journey they spotted angels in front and behind them. The angels in front sang “Niekundongoria mwathani” while the angels behind sang “Thiii athigari a Jehova Ngai”. On reaching the mountain they found an extremely beautiful house not built by a human made by glass alone. On entering they found cooked food of all types. They ate and immediately slept for they were so tired and the house was very warm.
- WATER BROUGHT
During the night at 3 A.M, water was brought in a pot and told to drink. No one could finish a full glass of it for the water was too cold. Only Jasani did it. At that same hour the angels of God started them off with the song “Jesu ni muriithi”. At those times Henry Maina had been gifted in singing, he had been commanded never to get married but as soon as they climbed down the mountain he fornicated and got married. A prophet was sent and told him that the gift has been withdrawn from him and given to Daudi Ikigu from Gathumuri.
In that moment God told them to always remember that day because it was the day that God spoke with them all those things.
- BUILDING OF THE ALTER
In those days God taught them how to build a prayer place. The alter should be at the front and the seats of witnesses and the congregation and the demarcation between seating arrangements of men and women and the behaviors of men and women and young men and young ladies and boys and girls. Everything was taught on the mountain of how the worship place was to be maintained. And concerning the white dressing, white robes and white turbans was all taught on the mountain.
- LILIAN NJERI SEEN IN A “GACUKA”
Of the things God revealed to them, the most amazing was that from 3 A.M to 9 A.M Lillian Njeri was seen wearing a “Gacuka” but when 9 A.M reached the “Gacuka” disappeared. They were told by God that for the married women they should be wearing a “Gacuka” from 6 A.M in the morning so that God may fulfill His promises with them.
