Most spiritual leaders today hide behind the four walls of their churches where it is safe, and they preach their message to the choir through the Christian media making sure they steer clear of politics particularly those in Africa.
Most people are not comfortable mixing politics and religion. However, Prophets seem to thrive on such issues. One such Prophet is the leader of Jesus Generation International Ministries leader, Prophet Edd Branson.
Prophet Edd foresaw all the drama and commotion of the Kenyan elections and prophesied a re-run way before the vote.
Prophet Edd even publicly called out Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta to call a day of national prayer in Kenya before the re-run of the disputed Kenyan election or he would lose the election.
Just four days before the re-run of the elections the Kenyan President called for a National Day of Prayer.

Commenting on the issue of spiritual leader such as Prophets calling on political leaders to call a nation to prayer Christian author and commentator Brilliant Pongo said “there is nothing out of the place with what Prophet Edd did in fact, we need more spiritual leaders such as Prophet Edd to speak to and call politicians to the attention of the voice of God. In the Old Testament, there were the political leaders, the kings, and the spiritual leaders, the priests/prophets. These were two very separate offices with two very separate roles to play. The king was the political leader of the people, analogous in our society to the President. The priest was the spiritual leader of the people, which would be the same as the prophets. God clearly established these as two separate offices. The governing of a nation and the shepherding of the spiritual lives of people are two separate and distinct roles.
Pongo went on to say “I pray, today, that you will not put your hopes in a politician when it comes to spiritual matters. That is not their role. I pray that you will find Godly men and women who He has called to lead the people in these final days. God always has a remnant, both of people and leaders. As these final days wind down, those true leaders will rise up and you will know who they are because you won’t be able to miss them. They won’t be hiding in a church or secluded on the Christian media, but they will be visible in this world we live in.
The world will scoff at what they have to say, they will be persecuted for their bold stand for Christ, but God will have His hand on them and their message will be heard by the masses. They will boldly declare to this lost, hurting, and dying world the TRUTH of God’s Word, that Jesus Christ is the “way, the truth, and the life,” and that He is the only answer for this world and each person.”
