David Owuor - Another Self-Exposed Fraud
Carol wrote to us:
My family in OZ have been caught up with a Dr Owuor. I think he's
from Kenya but I'm not sure. Can you give me any information about
Victor and Paul’s response:
According to your request, here is our judgment concerning Dr. David
Owuor. We refer to his
website, particularly the Statement
of Faith and "Prophetic
Calling" portions [the latter was removed from his website, but here
is an archived
copy]. There are many marks indicating he is a false man
One: Would God lead you to proudly bring your chamber pot contents
to the people as qualification to minister spiritually, as proof that
God has sent you? No man of God presents credentials he earned in this
world. I’m not exaggerating in the illustration, according to
Scriptural counsel in this matter. Here’s what Paul had to say
Philippians 3:2-9 MKJV
(2) Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision
(3) For we are the circumcision who worship God in the spirit and rejoice
in Christ Jesus and have no confidence in the flesh;
(4) though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other
thinks that he has reason to trust in the flesh, I more.
(5) I was circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the
tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews. As regards the Law, I was
(6) concerning zeal, persecuting the church; regarding the righteousness
in the Law, blameless.
(7) But whatever things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
(8) But no, rather, I also count all things to be loss for
the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for Whose
sake I have suffered
the loss of all things, and count them to be dung, so that I may win
(9) and be found in Him; not having my own righteousness, which is
of the Law, but through the faith of Christ, the righteousness of God
Dr. Owuor presumes his dung should impress his potential hearers and
command respect. He is right when it comes to impressing the world,
but he is so wrong if he thinks a real man of God would do such a thing
or that God’s people or those called of Him should be impressed.
Two: Owuor’s science doctorate has nothing to do with theological
qualifications, though he presents the office of a prophet with his
doctorate title. There has been many an atheist scientist with impressive
credentials like his in this world. Are they therefore more qualified
to be men of God than the fishermen, tax collectors, and men raised
in the wilderness like John the Immerser, or even than our Messiah
Jesus, never having “learned letters”?
But even if Owuor did have a theological doctorate, it would be of
no value whatsoever before God; it would be a hindrance, an automatic
disqualification in the service of His Kingdom. The apostle Paul was
speaking of a religious education and background as dung, not of a
worldly education in the sciences. However, to present either kind
of credentials would be unthinkable to him or any man of God. Already,
Owuor has exposed himself as a fraud, at least as one deluded, even
Three: He often dresses in white, right down to his shoes. Why? Do
you think Jesus dressed in white and stood out in the crowd? Don’t
let religious images of carnal men deceive you, which images transgress
the Third Commandment of God. It wasn’t that way with Jesus or
any of His disciples. They never made themselves out to be conspicuous
above others. Wicked and deceitful men and women like Benny Hinn, Kathryn
Kuhlman, and Owuor do. They seek to glorify themselves and gain the
praise of men.
Four: At Owuor’s site, the videos are presented with music to
move the carnal man, appealing to the flesh, but Jesus appealed to
the spirit, not to the flesh. He and His disciples didn’t have
choirs and musicians attending them when they went forth to preach
and minister, though they could have. Charlatans use music to appeal
to one’s emotions, to attract those who seek pleasure and sensual
satisfaction. They know the power of music to move and captivate.
We aren’t saying music and singing are taboo to God. David played
the harp and sang psalms. He and Solomon appointed choirs and orchestras
for the worship of the Lord in His holy Temple. The early congregations
sang hymns and spiritual songs, but for edification and worship, not
to tug at carnal heart strings and impress people, as does Owuor.
Five: Jesus and the disciples didn’t promote their miracles
and healings. Have you noticed that? In fact, there were occasions
when Jesus commanded those He healed to be quiet about it. Let me tell
you this: If there are genuine miracles of God, the populace will know
it. They won’t need convincing or marketing. God doesn’t
market His power and works.
Six: There is not a word of Owuor’s personal testimony of coming
to faith and repentance. The report of his science career leaps immediately
into a calling to preach repentance. Where was his repentance? And
what was he doing immediately prior to that alleged call of God, a
work of which he boasts?
“During this time, Dr. Owuor was able
to elucidate the link between p38 cell death and suicide pathways,
and especially the MKK6
oncoprotein and ErK5 defensive mechanism. To put it in lay man's terms,
this kind of cross-talk between defensive and cell death genes, complicates
cancer therapy and leads to the death of cancer patients. This cross-talk
also results into cancer drug resistance and therapeutic by-pass, therefore
making this a very significant finding in cancer research.”
We happen to know that the pharmaceutical industry is corrupt to the
core. We know that almost all of its products destroy, rather than
promote and restore, health and life. We know that mainstream medicine
is not in the least interested in finding a genuine cure for cancer
or, for that matter, any other disease.
We know that cancer is defeated with prevention and a change in lifestyle,
particularly in diet – all men of God know that. We also know
of several answers to turn and defeat cancer, and we have seen and
heard of many such successes, practicing those methods in what is commonly
known as alternative healthcare.
But is the conventional medical world interested? No. Indeed, it is
very interested in suppressing natural, alternative, godly healthcare
and is on public record for ruthlessly, viciously doing so.
The reason for that is very simple – there’s no money in
it. In fact, people living as they ought would spell death for the
medical industry as it exists today.
Do we know that the pharmaceutical industry is responsible for the
deaths and diseases of millions of people? Yes. Hundreds of drugs are
proven lethal to many, but very few proven to be efficacious. Many
drugs are toxic, synthetic copies of the true, natural healing substances
God has provided in His creation. The reason for the copycats is not
primarily to mass produce that which is beneficial, but to counterfeit
and patent in order to monopolize the market and make merchandise
Dr. Owuor was a pawn, if not
a broker, in this diabolical scheme.
The question is: Why was Dr. Owuor involved with the pharmaceuticals
if he was a believer, having faith (though nothing has been said about
How is it he uses the pharmaceutical background for his spiritual,
prophetic credentials and not the work of God in his heart and soul,
even as Paul the apostle testified? The answer is very simple: There
was no work of grace in this charlatan’s heart.
As an aside, did you know that the original Greek words translated “sorcerers” in
Revelation 21:8 and 22:15 of the KJV are “pharmakeus” (Strong’s
G5332) and “pharmakos” (Strong’s G5333), from which
we have the words pharmacy, pharmacist, and pharmaceutical? Interesting?
Not to say that all in pharmacy and modern medicine are sorcerers,
but what is the root origin of the industry, and how is it conducting
itself today with deadly practices like radiation and lethal toxins
such as chemo “therapy” (an oxymoron if there ever was
Seven: Dr. David Owuor is
pretentious and bombastic. Read Prophetic
Calling and you see that
he speaks like some great intellectual giant. Who is he trying to impress – children, God, saints, or
fools? Certainly not God, children, or saints:
“At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank You, O Father,
Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hid these things from the
wise and prudent, and have revealed them to babes. Even so, Father:
for so it seemed good in Your sight” (Matthew 11:25-26 KJV).
1 Corinthians 1:27-29 MKJV
(27) But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound
the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound
the things which are mighty;
(28) and God has chosen the base things of the world, and things which
are despised, and things which are not, in order to bring to nothing
things that are;
(29) so that no flesh should glory in His presence.
“These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom
teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things
with spiritual” (1 Corinthians 2:13 MKJV).
Doesn’t Owuor justify himself before men with all his works
and showmanship? And what does Jesus have to say about these who impress
men and draw great crowds and praise from the world?
“And He said to them, You are those who justify yourselves before
men, but God knows your hearts. For that which is highly esteemed
among men is abomination in the sight of God” (Luke 16:15 MKJV).
Eight: Let’s talk more of Owuor’s
We have already spoken of the credentials he presents. Let’s
go on to his prophecies or predictions.
There’s no question that scientists could predict precisely
the movement of the asteroids. Being a well-educated man and a scientist,
Owuor would know this, and if he did, he is a scoundrel for using the
information to peddle himself to simple people as a prophet of God.
In any event, the knowledge was not hidden to all men, though it wasn’t
revealed to them from above.
Scientists have known of approaching earthquakes in many areas of
the world. Had Owuor specified dates and places more specifically,
it might have proven something. But he didn’t. It was just a
matter of time before those earthquakes would hit.
The earthquake in Chile had already been predicted by scientists before
Owuor came along with his prediction, and the scientists gave more
precise details, correctly identifying where it would take place.
The Haitian earthquake, which Owuor’s site boasts he predicted,
was actually predicted for the Dominican Republic. It was there that
he preached, warning the people, “I see you running for your
lives, but I see that you have nowhere to run to.” Not a person
in that country, however, was harmed. In Higuey, the city where Owuor
gave the warning, there was only some very brief and minor shaking.
Yet he and his site have the audacity to advertise “Prophecy
of the Historic Haiti Quake finally fulfilled” under the title
(our emphasis added) “Prophecies Accurately Fulfilled.”
What rubbish! The man is a liar. Are liars the companions and spokesmen
of God? Here are those whom the Scriptures tell us are Owuor’s
companions, and the judgment he will enter with them:
“But the fearful, and the unbelieving, and the abominable, and
murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all
liars, will have their part in the Lake burning with fire and brimstone,
which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8 MKJV).
Note also that some earthquakes came in a matter of days or weeks
or months, while others came years after Owuor’s prediction.
It was simply a matter of time before a quake struck. Others have yet
to come, if they ever do. Without giving a specific time frame, Owuor
had nothing to lose with his predictions. He had much to gain from
the gullible and
And what about the predicted eclipse? The advent of eclipses is well
known years in advance by astronomers. So what is Owuor’s point?
And so rain clouds and light formations form in various and interesting
ways. We see that everywhere oftentimes.
Come to Canada and see the northern lights (aurora borealis) in the
winter season and see how breathtakingly impressive and glorious they
can be – vast sheets and rays of dancing lights of rainbow colors
changing in constant motion. That Owuor would use such things as proof
of a prophetic calling and anointing should warn any careful spiritual
sojourner of something amiss.
But to what purpose are his predictions anyway? Is God or
is Owuor glorified by them? Is that not a fair and
reasonable question? Did the prophets in the Old Testament go around
volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and asteroids? If they did, it was rarely
so; there was no point to it. They were prophets of God, not because
they could predict such events to prove themselves (they needed no
proof), but because they spoke the truth, convincing men and nations
of their sins.
Speaking of sins, of what sins does Owuor convince people? I have
found none at his site. He speaks of sin and repentance, but by and
large without substance or specificity. Indeed, his site is full of
presumption, self-glorification, and sin of every nature.
If all that I have said is true thus far (how can it not be true?),
then his report of seeing Moses, Elijah, John the Baptist, Daniel,
and the Ark of the Covenant, and of receiving
Moses’ rod, is falsehood - imagination at best, deliberate deception
Now what if some of the signs and wonders were by his power? Would
those prove him to be a true prophet of God? Not at all! Didn’t
Jannes and Jambres perform miracles, even copying and countering Moses
and Aaron, true men of God, by turning their rods to serpents and water
to blood, as had Moses and Aaron? What do the Scriptures declare of
2 Thessalonians 2:8-10 MKJV
(8) And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord shall
consume with the breath of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness
of His coming,
(9) whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power
and signs and lying wonders,
(10) and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those who perish, because
they did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved.
Nine: His site says, “The
Lord has commanded him to preach Repentance and Holiness and completely
return to GOD in order to prepare the way
for the Second Coming of The Lord.”
Shouldn’t men repent of sin at all times, never mind with an
imminent appearance of the Lord? Besides, men have been speaking of
the Lord coming again ever since Paul, John, Jude, and Peter preached,
nearly two millennia ago. They all seemed to think He was coming in
their day. Did Jesus come, or were they mistaken? It so happens they
were right; He did come, but not as men surmise.
Just before His death, Jesus Christ told His disciples He would leave
them and then would return. He returned from the grave. He then ascended
into Heaven and returned again at Pentecost, coming even to dwell in
Forty years later, He came again - an event commonly called Judgment
Day or the Day of the Lord - when General Titus with his Roman legions
destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple, as Jesus had prophesied.
He came to, and confronted, Saul of Tarsus, asking him, “Saul,
Saul, why do you persecute Me?” How was Saul persecuting Jesus?
Jesus Christ dwelt in each of the saints Saul was threatening, murdering,
and casting into prison; He wasn’t removed from the earth.
Jesus came and came again. He continues to come, but not in a physical,
literal body, as men expect in their carnal minds. Jesus Christ comes
in His people, in His Body (that’s what’s happening here,
as we expose a false prophet by His Spirit).
That isn’t what Owuor is saying about the Lord’s coming.
If he was a man of God, he would know how Jesus comes, but Jesus has
never come to him, so how could he know?
And what does he know of holiness, to which he claims to be calling
people, given all the things
we have witnessed with him?
Ten: Let’s take a look
at his Statement
Owuor: “The Holy Bible is the highest
and final authority in every aspect of life as created by God.”
Wrong. Read False
His words are those of a Bibliolater, not of a man of God who
worships God and appreciates the Bible as God’s Word. All of
creation declares God authoritatively.
“And the heavens shall declare His righteousness: for God is
Judge Himself. Selah” (Psalms 50:6 KJV).
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the expanse proclaims
His handiwork” (Psalms 19:1 MKJV).
Men of God bear witness to Him by His Spirit, the Highest Authority
dwelling in them, whether they repeat words from the Bible or not.
God Himself is the Highest Authority in “every aspect of life
as created by God.” By Him all things consist, the Scriptures
Men have perverted all they have touched or handled, including the
Bible, and we can only understand the Bible if He, the Author, gives
us to understand. Otherwise, we are all dumb sheep, knowing nothing,
though we spend our lives reading the Bible:
“You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal
life. And they are the ones witnessing of Me, and you will not come
to Me that you might have life” (John 5:39-40 MKJV).
Owuor: “We believe in
one God; eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God
the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.”
God is One Person, not three in one. Read Diabolical
Doctrine: The Trinity (God Is Three Persons).
Owuor: “We believe that
all men are born with a sinful nature and that the work of the Cross
completely redeemed man from the power
of sin and death. And that those who believe in Christ JESUS as LORD
and Saviour are saved.”
What is said is mostly true, but not quite. Those who repent, believing
the Gospel, and endure to the end are saved.
“And you will be hated of all men for My Name's sake, but the
one who endures to the end shall be kept safe” (Matthew 10:22
Read The Three Degrees.
Owuor: “We believe that
the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity and the baptism
of the Holy Spirit is manifested by
the fruit and the gifts of the Spirit.”
There is no trinity. Any man who teaches a divine, incomprehensible,
unScriptural, three-headed monster is brainsoiled by pagan mythology,
as adopted by orthodox Christendom, the harlot of harlots. Fools continue
to insist the trinity can’t be understood, yet spend countless
hours and write countless books trying to explain it. Go figure! Meanwhile,
Jesus contradicts them when He says His Spirit leads us into all
Read The Asininity
of the Trinity.
Owuor: “We believe that
the Church of Christ is the eternal and universal Body of Christ
JESUS consisting of all those who have
accepted the work of the atonement.”
Not quite. Who is unregenerate man to “accept the work of the
atonement”? Jesus said to His own, “You have not chosen
Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that you should go and bring
forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatever you shall
ask of the Father in My Name, He may give it to you” (John 15:16
MKJV). Man’s righteousness in any form or intensity simply will
False and Misleading Gospel of “Accepting” Jesus
Owuor: “We believe that
the Rapture is the imminent, premillennial return of Jesus Christ
for His holy church when the dead in Christ
shall be raised in glorified bodies, and those living in holiness shall
be transformed into glorified bodies without tasting death and get
caught up in the air with the Lord JESUS.”
But there is no such thing as the rapture. Men of God do not preach
escapism. Read the Lord’s words in Matthew 24 of the end, and
tell me where one finds any indication of a pretribulation rapture.
It isn’t there.
Read The End of the
World and Diabolical
Doctrine: Rapture before the Great Tribulation.
Owuor: “We believe in
the ordinance of water baptism by immersion in obedience to the Word
of God. And all those who have accepted Jesus
Christ as their personal savior should be baptized in water as a public
profession of their faith in Christ.”
How is it that Owuor, a supposed man of God, makes great mention of
a physical ordinance, an external, symbolic rite, which has no salvational
value in itself, yet he pays almost no attention to the substance,
the spiritual baptism that water immersion represents – the baptism
in the Holy Spirit? Read our section on Water
Baptism. Read also The
Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
Owuor: “We believe in
observance of the Lord’s Supper
as a proclamation of the death of Christ JESUS until He returns.”
A prophet of God knows much better than to emphasize the earthly symbolisms;
even more, he understands their meaning and practice. This man understands
nothing. Read our teaching on the highly confounding doctrine of the
“Lord’s Supper”: Diabolical
Doctrine: The “Lord’s
Owuor: “We believe that
the church has entered into a critical dispensation for Preparing
The Way of the Lord JESUS in observance
of absolute Righteousness and Holiness.”
These words alone give the man away. The
true Assembly of God, that is, His people, born of His Spirit, has
always been in a “critical dispensation,” not for preparing
His way externally, but internally, something Owuor doesn’t recognize,
judging by his many fruits of word and deed. Those who are the Lord’s
are always called to righteousness and holiness. When was it any different?
This man, Dr. David Owuor, is just another of many false ones.

Christians can't use music unless you approve of it? We are not to
