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 him?

Victor and Paul’s response:

Hi Carol,

According to your request, here is our judgment concerning Dr. David Owuor. We refer to his website, particularly the Prophetic Calling and Statement of Faith portions. There are many marks indicating he is a false man of God.

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 about that:

Philippians 3:2-9 MKJV
(2) Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision party.
(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 a Pharisee;
(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 Christ
(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 by faith….

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 if sincere.

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?

Under Prophetic Calling:

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 of men. 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 his faith)?

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 one)?

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 Prophetic Calling posting. 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 uninformed, however.

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 predicting earthquakes, 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 at worst.

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 such matters?

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 them.

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 of Faith.

Owuor: “The Holy Bible is the highest and final authority in every aspect of life as created by God.

Wrong. Read False Christianity Unmasked.

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 declare.

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 MKJV).

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 truth.

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 not suffice.

Read The False and Misleading Gospel of “Accepting” Jesus Christ.

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 Supper”.

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.

Carol, are you satisfied with our answer? Should you have anything more to ask, be free to do so and be specific if you can. Meanwhile, for more help, read The True Marks of a Cult, Diabolical Doctrines, and How One Is Saved.

An example of the kind of idolaters who write us in defense of their god, David Owuor, using phony e-mail addresses - their warnings to us are also phony, but for themselves, their warnings are real:

You wouldn't recognize a man of God if he stood right before you. your reasons for calling Dr. Owuor are the lamest I've ever heard. Christians can't use music unless you approve of it? We are not to shout from the rooftops what God has done? If he's just a fake, how come ALL of his prophecies have come true so far? You obviously have no real relationship with God or you would have prayed and asked God what HE says, if HE sent this man, we are to pray before opening our mouths and publically coming against a true man of God. Woe unto you, God warned not to touch or harm his prophets. Consider yourself warned.
