undry conjectures swirl around the unconscionable and heartless murder of my very good friend and Nigerian attorney, Barrister Kunle Fadipe, at his home in Lagos, Nigeria last week. As I disclosed in my tribute to him in this column last week, he had been targeted twice in the past and he told me those he suspected. But before we go into the physical natural factors and environmental reasons that precipitated his murder, we should deal with the spiritual first.
When did Junle Fadipe die? I asked the True Lord God Almighty as I disclosed in this column last week, why didn't the Holy Spirit show me the death of my friend. To the unspiritual, he died physically on Thursday night July 03, 2014 when the harbinger of Satan invaded his home and murdered him in his living room. But Kunle Fadipe actually died in the spirit realm 12 months earlier; that was July 03, 2013. As I have disclosed in this column in the past, Death is not an event; actually Death is a demonic spirit. Its deputy or assistant is Hades. According to the Book of Revelation 6: 8: "I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth." You don't use pronouns such as "they" and "him" for inanimate things. Lifeless beings cannot ride a pale horse. In addition, the physical and soulical components of human beings do not have life in themselves but only the human spirit. Our Lord Jesus Christ made this plain in John 6: 63a that: "The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing." Some interpreted that verse as the Holy Spirit and the life the Lord meant was "the born-again life" but Apostle James amplified that scripture fully in James 2:26 when he said: "As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead."
From the above scriptures, Death is an animate being who comes to take a soul on earth to the Nether Gloom. Among the Yoruba people of Africa, Death or "Iku" is a spirit and has many attributes. The Yoruba people even compose a dirge for this demon-spirit. Anyone who has watched the late Hubert Ogunde's films such as "Aiye," "Aropin N'tenia," "Jaiyesinmi" and others and analyzed the various songs in those classics will understand the proximity between Life and Death. Even today, the demon goddess of Death known as Santa Muerte is worshipped in Mexico and other Latin American countries. Centuries earlier on, Solomon explained to us how the demon of Death operates in Ecclesiastes 12: 6-7: "Remember him-before the silver cord is severed, and the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, and the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it." Pay particular attention to these four expressions and phrases: - "silver cord is severed" the "golden bowl is broken," "before the pitcher is shattered at the spring," and "the wheel broken at the well." There is a cord at the back of the human neck which connects the human spirit with the soul and body (Genesis 2: 7; 1 Thessalonians 5: 23, 3 John 1: 2). This silver cord must be allowed to develop when a human being is sent to the earth by the Spirit of God and that is why babies stay in their mother's wombs to grow for at least a minimum of nine months before delivery. In other words, all human beings that will be born on earth in May 2015 are already here now. Similarly, just as every human being needs nine months to develop this silver cord, a minimum of nine months is also needed to sever or cut -off this silver cord which connects the human spirit, soul and physical body together. Consequently, all human beings that will die in May 2015 are no more here right now, although you can still see them physically but their spirits are no more with us. That is why Solomon disclosed in Ecclesiastes 12: 7 above that "…and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it." The two expressions "…and the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from…" are referring to what is commonly referred to as the wheel of life which is like a tyre/tire and cylindrical and the human physical body is cut-off from the spirit respectively.
Human beings who are spiritually-blind may not have clues as to what we are talking about here. Even some Christians, especially "baby born-again Christians" will not understand this spiritual analysis either. Those "baby born-again Christians" as described by Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 3: 1-2 as; "Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly-mere infants in Christ. I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready," will think we're talking theology here, but this is real Holy Bible Study Analysis and Biblical Exegeses. Those matured Christians according to Hebrews 6: 1 that have moved: "… beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity" will understand our analysis here. Similarly, those disobedient children of Satan and demon-worshippers who dabble in the occult and witchcraft and especially engage in astral travel or projection understand what Solomon was referring to here which the Holy Spirit exposed to us-matured born-again Christians. Solomon was and still is the wisest human being who ever lived on earth, even till date but towards the tail end of his life, he dabbled into occultism and astral projection (1 Kings 11: 1-8). There is a group of demons trained by Satan as revealed in Revelation 2: 24 who assist some witches, wizards and those who indulge in astral projection/travel to connect the silver cord that binds the human spirit, soul and body together in the supernatural realm which we lost through our First Parents; Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden aftermath of the First Sin. That is why it is possible for a witch, wizard and other followers of Satan to move in the supernatural realm from place to place around the world without using their physical human bodies. When these special demons empower such Satanists with these supernatural powers, it is possible for a witch or wizard to leave say Nigeria, Cameroun or India for examples at 12 midnight, arrive in the United States, Europe or Canada at 1 am-less than one hour-appear to his/her victim in the dream, do what he/she wants to do and returns back to the village in Nigeria, Cameroon or rural India an hour later. No aircraft can accomplish that feat but Satan can and also give such powers to his followers; witches and wizards as disclosed by Apostle Paul in Ephesians 2: 2: "As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient." Please pay particular attention to the phrase: "ruler of the kingdom of the air" in that scripture above.
In my co-authored book, "The Kingdom of Satan Exposed," we revealed more on how the children of disobedience carry out this satanic operation. That is why some people who have left Africa for the West for many years, and have effectively cut-off communication with family members back at home and think they are not in the same geographical proximity with witches and wizards are often confused and taken aback at how the same witches and wizards and Satanists they hardly talk to or interact with in the physical realm can still be disturbing their lives in far-away North America, Europe or Asia. As I told a brother who is being oppressed by witches and wizards from his native African nation, you don't necessarily have to talk to a witch or live in Africa before you are spiritually attacked. As long as you are alive and living somewhere in this physical geographical plane known as the planet earth and breathe the air; witches, wizards and Satanists can and do have the power to locate you and do what they want. Another way through which that old woman witch or man-wizard in your village or town in Africa or Asia can reach you anywhere on earth from that remote African village or rural India is through the summoning of the human spirit. The Satanic World is a vast empire which is highly coordinated and systematically controlled like a big industrial complex or megalopolis corporation run by an overall chairman and chief executive, who is Satan himself with a pyramidal structure. Again, we have dealt extensively on this organograms of the Satanic World and demonic empire in my co-authored book; "The Kingdom of Satan Exposed." Even the witches and wizards, including those disobedient human factotums of Satan do not know how this kingdom of Satan operates, because demons don't reveal where and how their powers come from and are used to these Satanists all in the name of control, but only give them the powers to use. Only the Holy Spirit can authoritatively reveal to any human being the activities of the children of disobedience and He does that through the gift of discernment according to 1 Corinthians 12: 10c: "…to another distinguishing between spirits…"
This gift of spiritual discernment was used by Peter to reveal the secrets between Ananias and Sapphira before they appeared to the Church Assembly in Acts 5: 3-6 thus:- "Then Peter said, "Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land?" In Philippi, Paul and Silas ended up in jail because of exercising this spiritual gift of discernment when they busted a witch who used fortune telling for commercial purposes as we read in Acts 16: 16-18 thus:-"Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, "These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved." She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, "In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!" At that moment the spirit left her."
Coined from the Greek etymological word of "Diakrisis," when the Holy Spirit gives a born-again Christian the spiritual gift of discernment or distinguishing between spirits, you are able to recognize when someone is being used by the True Jehovah Lord God Almighty, or being influenced directly or remotely by Satan and his demons. It enables you to take proper assessment of a person, a situation, a statement and or even an environment that is of God or of Satan. My wife knows when we both enter any church setting or religious congregation or gathering, she looks at my face, we both look at each other and we either nod that the True Spirit of God is there or Satan and his demons are either fully in control or peripherally in charge. I only need to listen to any pastor or man or woman of God for few minutes, listen to a sermon briefly, or read few pages of a Christian article or any written Christian material through the gift of discernment to tear apart what is of the True Jehovah Lord God Almighty or self or of the devil. As Elihu through the Holy Spirit in Job 32: 6-9 aptly pointed out: "I am young in years, and you are old; that is why I was fearful, not daring to tell you what I know. I thought, 'Age should speak; advanced years should teach wisdom.' But it is the spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty that gives them understanding." Candidly, age has nothing to do with spiritual development. At every point in the life of every human being, even for nanosecond, every time a person opens his or her mouth to talk, or write, three spirits are at work: the Holy Spirit of the True Lord God Almighty, the person's own spirit and the spirit of Satan, period! The only way for a born-again Christian to know and understand when any of these spirits is at work in a human being, in any given situation or environment is through the Holy Spirit gift of discerning of spirits (1 Corinthians 12: 10c). My wife and I entered a restaurant one day and one of the white ladies ran away and couldn't come near us. My wife looked at me and asked, if the lady was a racist, but I smiled and replied:" "She's not a racist, she's a Satanist." It is very easy for witches, wizards and Satanists to identify a real child of the Living God. It's not by title but in the supernatural realm where Satan and his demons and their human agents operate, they see the spirit of the born-again Christians and compare such spirits with the demons inhabiting them and begin to wonder where the light in us come from. This is what our Lord Jesus Christ meant in John 3: 6: "Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit," and added in Mathew 5: 16:"…let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Dr. Margie and I entered one church here in the United States one day and the place was full to the brim. As we were about to occupy one of the pews, I saw some strange things and the Holy Spirit whispered "I'm not here."
When in 1997 the Lord God Almighty showed me the death of late Sani Abacha, Nigeria's last military despot in an underground tunnel where I was quarantined in Appapa, Lagos Nigeria as a political detainee of that bestial regime one year before Abacha physically died, or when in December 2013 the Lord God showed me the death of Alhaji Ado Bayero, late Emir of Kano six months before his actual physical death this year and many other revelations; these are what the Holy Spirit gifts of prophecy (1 Corinthians 12: 10b) and spiritual discernment (1 Corinthians 12: 10c) can do. But can witches, wizards and followers of Satan exercise these gifts of spiritual discernment and prophecy as well? Yes. So are those gifts then from the Holy Spirit when exercised by Satanists? No. So why and how is it possible for Satanists to also exercise powers given by God to born-again Christians by the Holy Spirit? This is through the demonic spirit of Death. Note this spiritual truth:-everything that the True Lord God Almighty can do among human beings can also be accomplished by Satan and his demons to a great extent except one thing; salvation. James 1: 17 say: "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." That also means there are some gifts among human beings that are not good and perfect gift although they are gifts all the same. Just as the Lord God Almighty can give His worshippers wealth, prosperity, longevity, gifts of prophecy, faith, healing, etc. so also Satan can do the same.
Mr. Tayo Fayemiwo (left) was the subject of litigation that late Barrister Kunle Fadipe (right) was handling for Dr. Moshood Fayemiwo (middle) before he was killed last weekend at his home in Lagos, Nigeria on Thursday July 03, 2014. I will reveal the connection between the two issues next week.
Next week, I will explain how the Lord God Almighty and Satan decide when and how any human being should die using my late friend, Kunle Fadipe as example. There were two earthly events that occurred which had both spiritual and supernatural dimensions-both worlds are not the same as I have indicated in this column in previous exegeses-in the wheel of life of Barrister Kunle Fadipe "…before the silver cord is severed, and the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, and the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it," which we finally saw in the physical earthly realm on Thursday July 03, 2014 at his Harmony Estate in Lagos, Nigeria. The first incident occurred in 2010 as he told me and the second occurred the following year 2011 and continued till June 21, 2014 right in his home in Lagos. I was intimately involved in the second event as will be revealed next week in this column.
FROM MY MAIL BAG THIS WEEK
Dear Dr Moshood, I want to thank you for your prayers. I always look forward to reading your articles because they are words of wisdom and they are helping me in my spiritual journey. I am looking forward to reading your book, I've been occupied with issues that needed my attention but by God's Grace those issues will be behind me soon in Jesus Name. May the peace, the anointing and blessings of God abide with you forever in Jesus, Name. Amen! --- Ms. Margaret Bidwell, Gaithersburg, Maryland
We thank the Jehovah Lord God Almighty for His protection and mercy in your life. Say me hello to her-you know who I am referring to -and the Good Lord will protect and prosper her for you and use her in His Kingdom for His Glory in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
Dear Dr. Fayemiwo, Sorry for the loss of your brother and attorney in Nigeria. May the Good Lord protect and keep the family he has left behind----Brother Kirby Skinner, Chicago, IL, USA.
Amen. Thanks Brother Skinner for your commiseration.
Brother Moshood , please accept my deepest sympathy for you in regards to the death of your attorney and friend in Nigeria. I read about his untimely demise while perusing the news in Nigeria a little while ago. May God bless and strengthen you and Margie. ---Dr Debbie Holiday, Chicago Public School (CPS), Chicago, IL USA.
The death of Barrister Kunle Fadipe in Nigeria has left me speechless. He was such a kind, gentle and brilliant man. I am so dumbfounded and shocked at his untimely death, more saddened by the senseless murder in his own house, in his living room and in front of his wife and children. This doesn't make sense and I hope the people who ordered and orchestrated the hit will be unmasked and made to face the full extent of the Nigerian law. The psychopath who invaded Barrister Fadipe's home and murdered him certainly wasn't acting alone and I hope the Nigerian authorities will seriously pursue this? ----Dr Margie M. Neal, Chicago, IL, USA.
Fayee, Indeed it was a very dark and bleak weekend on July 03-04, 2014 when we lost our good friend, Barrister Kunle Fadipe. We lost a good guy. His death has thrown up so many questions, but our solace is that Kunle is with the Lord. Again, he was such a very good man indeed. Warm regards to you and your family in the USA, my brother. --- Mr. Kunle Kujebe, Lagos, Nigeria.
Sorry for your loss Moshood. May the soul of your friend and attorney in Nigeria, Barrister Kunle Fadipe rest in perfect peace, Amen. ----Sister Kehinde Adelana, Houston, TX, USA.
"This killer didn't have a gun on him and there were at least three adults in the living room, how was it difficult that the assailant could not be subdued? There are many questions that demand answers." So many questions truly need answers here. May the Almighty Lord God grant Barrister Kunle Fadipe eternal rest. ----Mr. Dele Ajaja, Los Angeles, CA, USA.
Dear Dele, from my discussions with the Kunle's widow and from newspapers reports, the psychopathic murderer who committed this heinous crime could not be subdued by the widow and children as the bastard was demanding for money while at the same time charging at his victim. He was certainly on drugs and no weapons thrown at him could subdue him. Late Kunle Fadipe didn't keep a gun at home and by the time the local vigilante group keeping vigil at his Harmony Estate in Ikeja arrived with Kunle's son who sounded the alarm and was also injured, our friend had been stabbed multiple times. According to Kemi Fadipe, the widow, the murderer came specifically to kill and only used money as a distraction. It is up to the Nigerian Police authorities to investigate thoroughly the suspect and unmask the sponsors of the heinous crime and the people behind the home invasion and homicide. There is no doubt the current suspect acted a script written for him by his principals.
Dear Dr. Fayemiwo. Your tribute to our dear departed lawyer, Barrister Kunle Fadipe last week was indeed a touching piece. I knew this man through you and throughout the years I interacted with him, he was such a gentle and compassionate man. I can't still believe the gentleman we called our attorney and lawyer has passed on this way. It is still a dream and I'm speechless. If such a person could be murdered in cold blood in his house, is there any hope for our nation Nigeria? ----Pastor Arinze Alinnir, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria.
After reading Dr Moshood Fayemiwo's panegyrics for his late friend, Barrister Olakunle Fadipe,I became so weak. The Nigerian big Fish is fast eating up its fishes. ---Mr. Daaodu Olanrewaju, Osogbo, Osun State Nigeria.
Dear Dr. Moshood, This is really sad. O My God. So sorry to hear about the murder of your close friend and brother, Barrister Kunle Fadipe. The assassins should remember they too would die one day. The Bible is very clear about this - kill by the sword and die by the sword. The perpetrators would be found. May God strengthen his wife and family. Thank God he knew the Lord. It is well. ---Adetokunbo Banjo, Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria.
Dear D. Fayemiwo, Sorry for the loss of your friend and attorney, Barrister Kunle Fadipe. May the soul of Barrister Fadipe rest in peace in Jesus Name, Amen.----Sister Ebun Fadare-Aderibidgbe, Lagos, Nigeria.
Dear Man of God. I sensed how you are feeling when you said that God should have revealed the death of your friend and attorney, Barrister Kunle Fadipe to you. The most important thing is that the young man had a brighter future based on his relationship with the Lord. It is very unfortunate; there are many ways they are killing people in Nigeria these days, but this is the worst of them all. They can kill someone by using the money one sent to do something for him at home, if you are someone who lives overseas. And just when the person has come back home, the person could see that the money was used for others things. And others would be killed when they see that you have just come back home from abroad and was looking for way to settle down. It is easy to start life all over again when one is robbed, but taking the life of an innocent man is the worst. What the Living God is going to judge will be great on that Day of Judgment. Please do accept my condolences, and may you find that inner peace which had kept you very strong in everything that you have placed your hands to do for the common good of every one of us in Jesus name. Amen---Pastor Vincent Aja, Enugu, Eastern Nigeria.
Dear Pastor Aja, thank you for your condolences. Actually, the Lord God Almighty revealed the untimely death of Barrister Kunle Fadipe to me and even revealed it to his family. I will explain more on this next week in this column by the special Grace of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.
