he Lord God of Host says the future of Nigeria is bright if and only if citizens will see the wisdom that have been guiding them since 1979 as foolishness and will now embrace His own wisdom.
Nigerians will then be transformed from a state of penury to satisfaction, abundance and lack of want. In fact the speed of transformation will depend on how fast they obey His voice as was revealed to me as stated here.
God says October 1979 was the beginning of the decline of prosperity of Nigerians after some individuals started to enrich themselves with the State's resources thereby abandoning the development of State's infrastructures to the detriment of the majority of citizens.
Unfortunately, the military governments that ruled afterwards missed the opportunity to get the country on the right track when they could have enforced decency, accountability and commitment to the nation.
Alas! They were worse. They diverted the State's resources to their pockets and those of their surrogates.
Now in the civilian regime, God says that our deliverance is still a lot possible if we all as citizens; members of the Legislative houses, Ministers, Civil Servants, everyone in his or her trade, pray for power from above to be godly in all their businesses because no head of government, however righteous or godly or determined and disciplined he may be, will be able to straighten things in the midst of ungodly majority. Such a righteous president will be speedily frustrated and impeached by the ungodly majority. Reasons for impeachment cannot be in want.
For quick transformation from poverty to prosperity, God says that those who earn salaries like someone who has money making machines in their homes must purge themselves of their greed and take salary like someone who has the fear of God. This refers to the legislators in the two houses.
God says He is aware of a few, who has good leadership capabilities, who are selfless and determined to re-build the nation; who have the wizardry and the wisdom, to transform the nation to a prosperous one, where ordinary citizens will be able to eat the good of the land but because these ones are in the minority, they will be overcome by the ungodly, greedy and Satan filled minds such that even if one of the godly, gets to power, the unrighteous majority will quickly impeach him so that they can continue their business of looting the treasury so that only they and those who can lick their boots will be able to put food on the table for their children conveniently.
Meanwhile, Nigeria has no respect among the nations. They are objects of scorn, disdain and derision. They are looked upon as a nation of squadermania who cannot manage her wealth to the benefit of her citizens.
God says He has bestowed tremendous wealth to Nigeria but the majority of the citizens live in abject poverty with the wealth in the hands of a minority. God says that this is so because:
i. Though most Nigerians complain, they are all corrupt with the exception of a few. The aspiration of many is to look forward to the day when they too will occupy a vantage position where they shall be disposed to the common wealth and steal it.
ii. Many are corrupt, albeit little in their offices and businesses, thereby gagged from talking about the mote in other people's eyes when there is a beam in theirs.
iii. Many of them are satisfied playing sycophancy to the feudal lords; the same people who steal their wealth; left, right and centre, who decimated them; they are satisfied to eat of the crumbs that fall off their table. They hail them in their presence even if they curse them at their back.
iv. Religious leaders have not played their roles as God would have them do. Most care only for their stomach. Bold messengers like the prophets of old; Samuel, Elijah, Elisha, Isaiah, Jeremiah etc who put their lives on the line for the truth are scarce and so both the government and the governed do not have bold rebuke. Most religious houses have become, nothing but social clubs.
v. There are those who are comfortable, who have made their wealth, whichever way, honestly or by crook who therefore do not bother about what goes on with fellow citizens. God says He counts this a sin on them.
vi. There are those who have ruled it off in their minds, the possibility of ordinary Nigerians enjoying the common wealth. They hold prayer vigils but it is as if they have no hope in their prayers because what they often confess with their mouth is contrary to their prayer; so they are complacent and have reconciled themselves to a life of poverty. God asks people in this category to repent and take action in projects that will improve their lot.
vii. Many do not believe that they can survive through honest means; so honesty is not in their dictionary. They cheat and defraud whoever they do business with. God is asking them to repent and make necessary restitution.
viii. Even people who are on salary do not do the work for which they are paid without taking gratification from the people they serve. They ignore the fact that riches acquired through cheat, fraudulent acts etc, which made others to weep, end in doom. Such wealth does not endure or last. Only riches acquired through righteous means endures and last.
ix. Heresies have pervaded some pulpits. Certain preachers preach with great eloquence, which can confound if not careful, the most brilliant of Bible scholars that there is wealth in attending their houses of worship. This teaching has devalued the virtue of Christ's teachings as their followers cannot distinguish, which is godly and ungodly enrichment. Such preachers are to repent and stop preaching heresies
x. There are preachers on both sides of the isles who frequently pronounce fortune for the nation, yet they have in their congregation, the very ones, who are destroying the economy of the nation. These preachers must purge themselves and their congregation
The Lord says:
"If you are willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land" He breaks it down further "If you will only obey me and let me help you, then you will have plenty to eat" (Isaiah 1: 19).
The Lord asks:
"Are you willing to eat the good of the land?"
I can hear everyone chorus loudly "Yes"
But are you willing to let God help you?
The loudness in the chorus of "Yes" has dimmed because we want to make it through our own wisdom.
But are you willing to try God's prescribed wisdom for the prosperity of Nigeria, which alone will result in an enduring and lasting prosperity for you and your offspring and their descendants? Because except the nation prosper, individual's prosperity is short lived, it won't last. It is the prosperity of the nation alone that is the answer to individual's lasting and enduring prosperity.
I can hear someone say "Let us hear it first"
The solution to ending our general poverty where we all and our descendants shall be favoured with the good of the land and turn Nigeria to a nation, which can be reckoned with in the comity of nations, is for all of us to embrace God's wisdom, which says "Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach (disgrace) to any people (Prov. 14: 34).
God's wisdom is in 'godly behaviour' by everyone; government and the governed in all our business.
Come October 1979 we departed the path of righteousness. Those in power had little commitment to building the State, rather they concentrated attention to enriching themselves. By that, every other person except a few, became corrupt in their offices and businesses. The path of righteousness is God's wisdom for any nation to prosper but we turned the way of sin and so poverty envelopes most of us ever since, which children not born then have now inherited.
There are certain individuals in Nigeria who are richer than the nation and any nation where such a thing happens is on its way to extinction. It is only a matter of time.
After we all embraced sin, rapid development of the nation slowed down and infrastructures collapsed almost in total and private businesses collapsed.
Now the LORD says
"'When people fall down, don't they get up again?
When they discover they're on the wrong road, don't they turn back?
5 Then why do these Nigerians stay on their self-destructive path? Jer. 8: 4-6:
The Lord says:
"Stop at the crossroads and look around.
Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it.
Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls (Jer.6 :16).
To get the country back on course is easily achievable.
The speed of transformation will depend on how fast those who mount the pulpits on Sundays and Fridays and school teachers who meet with the youths from Mondays to Fridays start immediately to sound the messages here henceforth until all the people hear it and understand it.
God bless anyone who takes it upon himself to broadcast and spread this message as the word says:
"How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! (Romans 10: 15)
