THE CHRISTIAN WALK

Cameron, Texas, USA
hen the True Lord God Almighty showed us the current global pandemic known as Coronavirus, we published it in this column for nearly a year alerting the entire human race. Here were our exact words as revealed by the Holy Spirit and published here in The Christian Walk on Tuesday November 5, 2013 almost seven years ago:-
""=WORLD PROPHECY: This is huge! Something of global importance, an earth-shattering event and a cosmic occurrence is in the offing in the world. I don't know what it is but the Holy Bible has predicted it and we shall all see it with our very eyes soon. This event is part of end-time prophecy and it's about to take place very, very soon in the next 12 to 24 months. I don't know what it is; I repeat again, I wasn't shown what it is but again, it's HUGE. The whole world will be shocked; from the rising of the sun to the setting of the sun; from the East to the West; from the South to the North, the planet earth is about to witness a catastrophic event. The Divine Hand of God Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and the universe, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is about to intervene in the affairs of humanity. The world media, the commentariat, the scientists, the astrologers, the men and women of earthly wisdom and their ilk will be talking their heads out but will not be able to explain but those who know the True God will be unshaken and unperturbed. What is it? I wasn't shown but was only told (Luke 21:11 & 25).
I have been repeating the above prophetic words almost a year since this column debuted and as events unfold around the world, I will not comment on the unfolding drama in Syria. Also in the news is the current rapprochement between Washington DC and Tehran. The other day, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with President Obama on the new tune being sung by the Ayatollahs of Iran on the sanctions crippling their nation. We will not comment on the recent U.S. Government shut-down too, which has come and gone, but may occur in the near future. Again, let's keep our fingers crossed as events play out in the most volatile areas of the world, but one thing is certain, biblical prophecies are being fulfilled right before our eyes…" (Click for the prophecy on the current Covid-I9 outbreak as shown us by the Holy Spirit: https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/110513.htm). We repeated it for nearly a year as published here in the Christian Walk on Monday October 21, 2013 (https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/102113.html).
This week, we want to begin thorough spiritual analyses on this deadly demon of death. What is it? In other words, what exactly is the meaning of this plague in spiritual terms? You know, the medical world and epidemiologists are running helter-skelter now to advance all forms of causes to this demon but don't be fooled. Those with spiritual insight should know that this basically is a spiritual matter and no matter the level of medical spinning in the medical world, this plague is Death itself. In our six-part series, we will disclose who and who will be affected, because folks, this pandemic is just warming up. Any charlatan telling you contrary is just deceiving you. This plague will be around till this time next year so brace up and make adequate provisions right now, if you aren't a child of the Living God. Hear what the King of kings and Lord of lords says: "If anyone is destined for captivity, into captivity he or she will go; if anyone is to die by the sword, by the sword he or she must be killed" (Revelation 13:10). In the prophetic years of Jeremiah when the people of Israel sinned and the entire land was demon-infested and none was seeking the Face of the Only True Lord God Almighty Who is forever to be praised and worshipped, He sent Prophet Jeremiah to them just as there are some of us prophets on earth today genuinely and truly called by His Grace as watchmen and women over the nations. The color of our skin and gender, social status and those artificialities in social categorizations among human beings notwithstanding, we still speak the Voice of the Almighty God Who created everything. As the children of Israel came to Jeremiah in those days to ask what was about to happen to the land just as those concerned about their eternal destination are asking us of what to make out of this current pandemic and what to do, hear the Word of the Creator: "If they ask you-the Lord addressing Jeremiah-"Where shall we go?" you are to tell them that this is what the Lord says; "Those destined for death, to death; those destined for the sword, to the sword, those for starvation, to starvation, those for captivity, to captivity" (Jeremiah 15:2). The current plague of the world was allowed by the True Lord God Almighty that we have been preaching and talking about in this column for more than a decade now. His Greatest, Awesome and Powerful Name is Jesus Christ, the Lord, Master and Savior of the world. This pandemic is not your typical zombie apocalypse that can be extirpated with a vaccine as we did with polio; this is the Grim Reaper himself from the pit of hell let lose by the Lord God Almighty on our planetary abode. Jesus Christ is talking to us!
You may squint, grimace and pout at this Awesome Name, but take it; He is the One Who has allowed this pandemic to descend on us for reasons I will disclose in subsequent series in this column. He is the One Who is totally in control of events in heaven and absolutely in charge of all activities, occurrences and events on earth and since He created all things, including Satan and the demon of Death now running amok on earth; He gave the go-ahead to Satan to kill many souls as possible as this plague stretches to the next 12 months while its devastating effects will linger for 18 months and beyond and forever. He said as much; "I am the Lord and there is no other; apart from Me there is no God. I will strengthen you-referring to Cyrus the king-though you have not acknowledged Me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of setting people may know there is none beside Me, I am the Lord and there is no other. I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord do all these things" (Isaiah 45:5-7). Satan cannot go beyond the end of his leash as the Almighty God decides and Satan's fallen angels; principalities, demons, authorities, rulers, hosts and forces of darkness and bag of wickedness have certain limits they can go in inflicting pains and disaster upon the human race subject to the directive of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Who and who will be affected by the current global pandemic? There are six categories of human beings that are currently on earth with many sub-divisions according to the Word of Life. Each of the human group should brace up to confront this demon of death let lose by the King of kings and Lord of lords as my prophecy declares. The Creator of the heavens and earth is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8) and He will deal with His Created beings as He always does, because "I, the Lord, do not change" (Malachi 3:6) even though; "The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever" (Isaiah 40:8). Hallelujah!
In this state of world uncertainty and global hugger-mugger, there are certain things you can and should do to ride out this storm. As foretasted, do not let some religious racketeers and charlatans to deceive you that this plague is a passing phase and we will soon return to normal life as it is known. Yes, life goes on as destined by the One Who owns life, the Lord God Almighty; but trust me; it is not going to be business as usual for those of us that will be remain after the plague goes away, albeit temporarily because a more devastating and deadly Coronavirus 2.0 is returning in the next nine years which is 2029. Many souls will perish this year 2020 and 2021 while those that will be infested will die slowly and agonizingly in years to come. As declared by secular authorities in virtually all countries on earth right now; it is good to stick to the social distancing precautions, use hand sanitizers, wash your hands and blah, blah, blah. But folks, these are not inoculationary measures against the demon of death. This is a spiritual matter and any other way to threat and react to it will be futile as will be seen presently. Can human beings stay in-doors forever? Can the economies of the nations of the world sustain a mitotic world? For how long are we to individually ostracize and distant ourselves and sustain a life of personal autarky? How many times in a given day are we to sanitize our hands and wash minutely, hourly and daily? What do we do with those already suffering and inhabited with the virus? How about the medical personnel already infested but aren't aware of the virus? Will the printing of paper money as our various governments in the world are trying to solve this problem cut it? Will paper money being thrown at this plague guarantee its elimination? For how long can the world sustain these puerile and ineffectual measures to contain a spiritual problem? Spiritual blindness is deadly and makes people suffer! Finally, will there be a cure and antidote for the pandemic? How will our world look like from late 2021 and beyond?
FELICITATIONS ON OUR DUAL BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS
*Dr Moshood Ademola Fayemiwo and Dr (Mrs) Margie Neal-Fayemiwo at our dual-birthday celebrations
I want to express my sincere thanks, heartfelt appreciations and profound gratitude to many precious souls that felicitated with us on our dual birthday celebrations last week. As I disclosed in earlier articles and for those who know me intimately, I do not believe in celebrating birthdays and it is not in my nature, but at the Breakthrough 2020 held at the beginning of this year here in Texas, the Holy Spirit inspired me to make this year an exception. We then proceeded to celebrate our 23rd year in the ministry which was on February 21, 2020 and my natural birthday on March 16, 2020. The outpourings of felicitations by well-wishers, friends and colleagues through sundry means from all over the world were overwhelming and for those whose congratulatory messages could not make it here, I am sorry it was not inadvertent but for space constrains. Perhaps, we will shout our thanks in subsequent articles. On behalf of my wife, spiritual partner and able, dependable and trustworthy spiritual half; Dr Margie I want to acknowledge the gifts sent to us in celebrations of these two occasions. The Lord God Almighty will refresh you as well in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
HERE COMES THE E-CONGREGATION CHRIST ASSEMBLY!
Readers of this column and those who religiously keep faith with us have read sundry times here where I disclosed that I haven't been called to pastor a church assembly. In other words, my calling is not assemble precious souls in mortar-and-brick edifice and shepherd them. There is five-fold ministerial calling in the Christian Walk namely: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers (Ephesians 4:11). Of these five, I have been called to three by the Holy Spirit namely: prophet, evangelist and teacher in tow. We have exercised and are still exercising these three callings of the Holy Spirit in this column for the past ten years. Now, the Holy Spirit is commanding us to move to the next phase as my prophecy declares. You see, when you are truly and genuinely-called by the King of kings and Lord of lords; our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ; He will give you directives on how to proceed in His Service. I disclosed here before that the Lord Jesus Christ is not as pleased with any spiritual work we engage on earth in our Christian Walk, but more pleased and satisfied when that spiritual work is initiated by Him through the Holy Spirit. In other words, we cannot impress the King with our earthly spiritual engagement. This is also the same thing in secular job. You don't engage in any activity in your place of employment without obtaining clearance from your boss and employers, no matter the genuine motive behind that self-initiated engagement on behalf of your employers. It can even earn you a demotion or dismissal. In public service, it is called insubordination and you can be fired and sacked for such actions considered ultra-vires meaning beyond your powers." This is why corporations and private concerns institute organizational cultures defining limitations and power relationships including etiquettes and ethics including responsibilities. The Almighty God Who is the repository of powers and zenith of wisdom also weighs motives in our working for Him as disclosed thus: "All a person's ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the Lord…" (Proverbs 16:2).
The one called truly and genuinely by our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ should and must not carry out the Master's work through instincts. If you looked at all the evangelistic activities of the early apostles; every move was initiated and planned by the Holy Spirit, including the minute details of their evangelistic itineraries. They didn't form committees and panels; neither did they vote nor cast lots after Pentecost (Acts 2:1-47). In working for the Overall Boss, Who is the Boss of all Bosses; He and He Alone recruits and calls us individually to His Spiritual Work. "Then Jesus went up on the mountain and called for those He wanted, and they came to Him" (Mark 3:13; See also Matthew 10:1; "And calling His twelve disciples to Him….;" Luke 6:13; "When daylight came; He called His disciples to Him…" I have told of a certain brother while I was in Tampa Florida 18 years ago who said he wanted to be a pastor and I told him, you cannot aspire to be a pastor. You get that right! Anyone who says he or she aspires to be a pastor is a fraud. There are five ministries in the Body of Christ you can aspire to namely: general overseer, deacon, deaconess, church elder, and church administrator (I Timothy 3:1-15). But you cannot aspire to be any of these five ministries but must be called by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself namely: apostle, evangelist, pastor, teacher and prophet (Ephesians 4:11). By the way, evangelist is also the same as missionary. In working for the Lord Jesus Christ, there are heavenly protocols. The Almighty God is a God of Order and this is one thing you must grasp from the word Go in answering His Call for your life as a teacher, pastor, evangelist, pastor and prophet. These heavenly protocols were evident in all the ministerial calling and activities of the early apostles and that was why the book of Acts is so appropriately titled: The Activities of the Apostles, for our "…God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints" (I Corinthians 14:33).
For starters, the Holy Spirit or our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and the Two are One Who call us into His Ministry through seven methods namely; audibly, through dreams, vision and traces, through the Word; that is, the Holy Bible, through open vision like Samuel, and through another servant of God already called. In these seven methods, the Lord God can use more than one method and a combination of them as He did for me in my ministry and other genuine and truly called men and women of God. In any of the method(s) and means through which you are called, what matters is that; "…brother, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure…" (2 Peter 1:10). Here is a classic example of what we are talking about in Acts: "Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers…..While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said; "Set apart for me Barnabas and Paul for the work to which I have called them…" (Acts 13:1-3). Do you see here that Barnabas and Paul didn't put themselves forward or aspire to be prophets, evangelists/missionaries and teachers, but were called by the Holy Spirit. The next stage will be your training and it doesn't have to be a theological school or bible training center, unless the Holy Spirit specifically directs. For Moses, it was 40 years of training, for Joshua, it was 40 years, for Samuel, the same number of years, for Paul, it was 14 years and so on. Then the third stage is where you want to be used by the Holy Spirit Who called you in the first place. Here is another classic example; After the Holy Spirit called out Barnabas and Paul for His use, they were trying to devise their own program as people do nowadays in the church of the Lord and they were planning to take the Gospel to Bithynia in India, but the Holy Spirit overall them as we read thus: "Paul and his companions traveled throughout the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been kept by the Holy Spirit from preaching the word in the province of Asia. When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to. So they passed by Mysia and went down to Troas. During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, "Come over to Macedonia and help us." After Paul had seen the vision, we got ready at once to leave for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them"(Acts 16:6-10). Do you get it now? Just as you and me including people of the world have timetables of events and activities on earth, so the Almighty God is also program-scheduled. You must align with His Divine Schedule, for that is the only sign of obedience. As the hymn says; "There is no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey"
Consequently, in our ministry here at The Jesus Christ Solution Center Texas, we wait upon the Holy Spirit to direct us to our next spiritual move, for after all, this is His ministry and not ours. Our duty is to obey and carry out His instructions accordingly.
When this column debuted about ten years ago, the Holy Spirit began to lay it in my heart to start an Online Church to be known as E-Congregation as many precious souls are fed up with the traditional brick-and-mortar church which lay too much emphasis on activities than the teaching of the Written Word. We receive tons of email and telephone calls from around the world from precious souls underserved by the traditional church assembly. We are confided in by many precious souls than they would otherwise do to their local pastors, because as they say; too much familiarity breeds so much contempt. The local parish of a precious soul is supposed to be the first spiritual responders to sundry spiritual issues confronting precious souls, but lamentably many of our today's pastors have other pulls that draw them away from this urgent spiritual responsiveness. Don't get me wrong please, we are not criticizing but simply stating the obvious. As the Lord Jesus Christ began to impress the need to make up for this spiritual lacuna, I told the King to give us a sign to this effect. No wonder as I was ruminating over this Holy Spirit and the next move than Brother Kola, our Technical Director here at the ministry called me from his quarantined home and said, he has just been told by the Holy Spirit to inform me that we should go ahead with the E-Congregation. The Holy Spirit has thus confirmed His Word. The aim of this congregation is full and total Bible Study Online. It is not a church; I repeat we are not starting a new church. We want to teach and study the word of life from the Greatest Teacher; the Holy Spirit. If you want to take your spiritual knowledge and Christian Walk to the next level, this is it! Register now by sending us your information via email to any of the following administrators namely: Dr Moshood Ademola Fayemiwo (firstname.lastname@example.org); Dr Margie Neal-Fayemiwo (email@example.com); Brother Kola Olatunde ( firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr Gerry Onukwugha (email@example.com). In your email, simply state I WANT TO BE PART OF E-CONGREGATION. We are putting the technical preparations together right now and we shall take-off very, very soon, Thank you and remain blessed in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
