12 HIDDEN SPIRITUAL CLUES TO YOUR SINGLENESS, MARITAL PROBLEMS AND OTHER ISSUES OF LIFE
e has done all that is humanly possible to please his wife, but his best wasn't the best in her estimation for the marriage to work out and so she moved out. They're both nominal Christians, but the Holy Spirit was able to direct him to call us here at The Jesus Christ Solution Center, Texas. He was asking for prayer as most people do, but the least of his spiritual problem was not prayer but knowledge. As Romans 8:26 pointed out to us plainly: "In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans." We often mistake our human problems for our prayer points; like someone is broke financially, its prayer for money that should be offered; or in our brother's case, he wanted prayer for his wife to return to him. But that wasn't what he needed; the question he should ask first is; what caused the wife to move out of their matrimonial home in the first place? Life is a continuum and the intersections between the invisible supernatural realm and the visible natural world are so tenuous that knowledge of the invisible spiritual realm and how it operates is lacking in many people's lives.
The True Lord God Almighty and Satan do not live in the same realm; although they are invisible to the human eyes. The Lord God Almighty in His Majesty operates in the invisible non-material spiritual realm while Satan, his demons and minions live and operate in the invisible non-material supernatural realm. This latter realm is where Satan mesmerizes his human agents and wows them with all kinds of supernatural experiences such as astral travel, psychic powers, witchcraft and many more. Those of us genuinely called and indwelled with the Holy Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ do not operate at the invisible non-material supernatural realm; rather we operate at the invisible non-material spiritual realm in the Third Heaven seated with our Lord Jesus Christ as Ephesians 2:4-6 pointed out thus: "But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions-it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus…" Hallelujah! It was this spiritual knowledge given us by the Holy Spirit that made me warn a Satanist who passed my house one night during his astral travel. I called him the following day that he should not astral project near my mansion anymore, otherwise he would fly one of these days and I will make sure he doesn't return to his physical body. He got the message.
Prayers are not what you should be asking and yearning for each time you have challenges, especially after you have prayed numerous times, because the Lord God Almighty Himself promised in Isaiah 59:1-2: " Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear…" Do you read that? He did not only say our sins, but iniquities, which means the two are different. In other words, iniquitous acts can and do make God not to hear our prayers and when you combine that with sins, we are done for, and are praying amiss (James 4:3). To continue to pray over and over again for the same thing and nothing moves the needle isn't biblical and spiritual. But didn't our Lord Jesus Christ say we should pray without ceasing (Luke 18:1), but the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ didn't say we should repeat the same requests over and over again in the same prayer. Actually He warned in Matthew 6:7: "But when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking" (KJV). So why do people often ask for prayers over human issues, instead of first finding out the root cause(s) of their problems and then can pray? Simple-we want shortcut and easy way to our sundry issues because we want to avoid the heavy lifting. Knowing the root cause(s) of a problem is far better instead of fleeting amelioration of the problem, because left totally untreated, the problem will grow again. Palliative measures are shortcut to mega problems down the street of Time.
I don't care what you may going through right now; financial difficulty, lack of breakthrough, unemployment, bareness, singleness and inability to settle down to your God-given husband or wife, bad health, sickness, marital instability, general hopelessness, frustration, aimlessness, spiritual apathy, depression, and other sundry issues and matters of life, if you have prayed on your own, or in conjunction with others and nothing is moving the middle, it is not one more prayer that you need. Go back to the drawing board and begin to ask questions; seek the face of more anointed and knowledgeable men and women of God to educate you and not to pray for you. You need knowledge first (Hosea 4:6), before you know what and how to pray as Romans 8:26 above told us. Here are 12 hidden areas Satan and his demons; who by the way know the rules of the spiritual warfare, hide to make lives of human beings miserable and prey on their blessings.
Ancestral Iniquities:- There are many difficulties we are currently passing through in life that are not of our own making. There have been spiritual pacts that many of our ancestors had made with Satan and demonic forces hundreds of years ago that are still extant in our lives. These are couched in what Apostle Peter referred to as tradition and culture: "For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors,…"(I Peter 1:18). Our Lord Jesus Christ took swipes at the Rabbis and the Jewish leaders because; "You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions!" (Mark 7:9) See also Matthew 15:3; Mark 7:13). Ancestral iniquities bound a group of people together as a clan and such corporate pledge, oath and undertakings move from generations to generations, even when a member becomes a born-again Christian. You must identify it in your life and deal with spiritually. Such iniquitous acts, pacts and covenants are solemnized with blood just as the Almighty God did to the Israelites in Exodus 24:7-8: "Then he took the book of the covenant and read it in the hearing of the people; and they said, "All that the LORD has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient!" Moses then took the blood, sprinkled it on the people and said, "This is the blood of the covenant that the LORD has made with you in accordance with all these words."
I was visiting a sister at her naming ceremony in Florida and overheard her talking to her mother on the phone. They were talking in codes, but trust the Holy Spirit, He busted them. When she dropped the telephone, I asked her what the matter was as she looked dour and agitated. She explained her mother wanted to send something for her to drink, because it has always been a tradition in the local community she came from in West Africa that the concoction is a must for any lady who gives birth to a male child as their first born. It is not required for any lady either born or married to any man from that part of West Africa giving birth to a female as her first born, but it is compulsory for any lady either born or married to any man from that part of West Africa giving birth to a male child as first born. The sister had been married for nearly ten years without a child and after seeking the Face of the Lord, he finally conceived and her first born was a male child whom I was around as part of the naming ceremony. I asked the sister what would happen, if she didn't use the concoction her mother warned her to drink while breastfeeding the tot. She may lose the child. I asked her if she knew what the concoction contained and she answered in the negative. So, I sat her down and narrated the story of that so-called concoction. It contains the flesh of lizard. She looked at my face disbelievingly. It took me another one hour to tell her the story behind that tradition by her tribe in West Africa. She said I should pray for her, but I told her it wasn't prayer she needed. If she drank the concoction while breastfeeding the baby, that baby's life would be spared as a result of my prayer, but her life would be programmed for ever by demonic forces. I told her what to do and after she completed it, we would pray later and she should send the concoction to me without telling the mother.
The invisible non-material supernatural realm is real and exerts preponderance power and influence on us to the chagrin of the spiritually knowledgeable. These demonic forces had been here for ages before you and I, before our First Parents; Adam and Eve were ever created. Their pernicious hold on the human race is mindboggling and without the Holy Spirit and His leading, we will all be finished. Anyone who neglects and waves them off as figments is crazy and does so at his or her own peril.
Generational Iniquities: A brother called me from China five years ago; dejected and forlorn on the phone. He was one of the best three in his graduating class; smart and bright, but somehow he couldn't see any tangible results in all he touches. His wife hasn't conceived; he is employed but didn't know how he spends his money. He knew something is wrong somewhere and that was why he called. Well, his late father was popular and known in Africa during his lifetime. He made it in life, but through appropriating the spiritual blessings of his male children. In other words, he lived his life and also ate the future of his male boys. In Nigeria, there was a notorious traditional ruler with the same demonic pact; anytime he was bed-ridden, he would send for his children and out of concern, they would converge at his palace. By the time they would be returning to their various locations, one would die on the highway via road accident and few days later, the traditional ruler would get well. Based on the spiritual covenant he had with Satan to prolong his life, he had to give out blood periodically to renew the covenant for as the Bible says: "Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood" (Gen. 9:4-6). See also Leviticus 17:14). Politicians do this too but they pay heavily with human blood, especially the blood of their children, which enable them to be popular, powerful, and richer and control people. It is demonic power. Acts 8:9-11 "Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, "This man is rightly called the Great Power of God." They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his sorcery."
In 1979 I was fresh from high school and was told that my father was bedridden. My maternal aunt, late Mrs. Olawunmi Fagboyegun told me that my father was seriously sick and he had sent a message from his elder sister; Madam Aina Rachel Fayemiwo a.ka. Mama Adeoye- whom readers of this column must have read about in the past- that he-my father- wanted to see me urgently. I told Mrs. Fagboyegun I would not see my bedridden father, because I had a dream that I shouldn't go and the traditional ruler's demonic pact came vividly to my mind. My father eventually died and all these people are dead now. But fast forward 36 years later, here in Cameron Texas in the United States, my American wife told me exactly what happened in Nigeria in 1979 and she said, if I had gone I would have been dead. I have never, ever told her this part of my life before. But as we were doing our normal morning devotion here at The Jesus Christ Solution Center, TX the Holy Spirit showed her that past event of my life that happened 36 years previous way back in Africa. Hear what our Lord Jesus Christ said the Holy Spirit would do in our lives: "But the Comforter, who is the Holy Ghost whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you" (John 14:26 KJV). Do you read that? The Holy Spirit will bring to your memory things that had occurred in the past.
I was shown a vision of my paternal family compound at Iloro quarters in Owo, Ondo state, Western Nigeria where flies and creeping objects were all over the place and the compound deserted everywhere covered with cobwebs. I asked the Lord what happened and was told that ever before I was born, a cow was buried alive in the center of that family compound to boost my father's political fortunes in the early 1960s. He was the first secretary-general of the defunct NCNC and later the first secretary-general of the defunct AG with late Pa Michael Adekunle Ajasin. The Holy Spirit told me that was why He ensured I wasn't born into that family compound when my mother was about to give birth to me in the 1960s but had to be delivered at the Balongun family compound at Ododasa Street, Ijebu-Owo and taken to Ilale Village where I grew up as a tot. Today, that family house in Iloro is deserted. Friends, I don't know where you're reading this from right now, but I want you to look at the family you came from; nothing happens by accident. There are some families that the men there can never marry one wife, even if they become pastors unless the root causes of their predicament is traced and dealt with spiritually. There are some families where no one has ever attained the age of 60; they normally die before their time. There are some families that no one has ever made up to N1 million in their lives in Nigeria. It's like there is a bar has been placed on their level of financial success. There are sundry examples in the Word of Life; "Reuben, you are my firstborn, my might, the first sign of my strength excelling in honor, excelling in power. Turbulent as the waters, you will no longer excel,…"(Gen. 49:3-4). Read the entire Holy Bible and you'll never find a king of Judah or Israel descends from the family of Ruben out of all the 12 patriarchs, yet he was the first born. What happened? Generational iniquity!
A brother called from Europe for spiritual help. His issues were non financial-related, but he has no joy of the Lord. He knew something was amiss and as we were about to pray, these verses came to my mind: "During the reign of David, there was a famine for three successive years; so David sought the face of the LORD. The LORD said, "It is on account of Saul and his blood-stained house; it is because he put the Gibeonites to death" (2 Samuel 21:1). So I had a check in my spirit and asked the brother to tell me his story. We were on Skype. His late father and some family honchos were part of the ruling class during the era of a notorious military dictator in an African country. They had wealth and accumulated a fortune during those blood-thirsty years and he was sent abroad very early in his life without any clues on what his family did in his native African nation. Yes, they were stupendously rich and they still are, but it is all blood money. The dictator maintained his vice-grip on power during those brutal years through a pact with Satan and his demons and this brother's family was one of those parties to the demonic covenant. Many lives were lost, because blood had to be shed to maintain the demonic pact and satanic covenant. Now the era is over, but Satan and his demons don't forget their covenants and our brother has to pay the price. Hasn't the True Lord God Almighty stated in Exodus 20:5: "Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them; for I, the LORD thy God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me,…"(KJV). Of course, the brother was afraid, because he was completely oblivious of this sordid aspect of his family history. That demonic pact and covenant must first be broken before any prayer is offered. Hear what the Holy One declared in Isaiah 30:1: "Woe to the obstinate children," declares the LORD, "to those who carry out plans that are not mine, forming an alliance, but not by my Spirit, heaping sin upon sin;..." How do you annul a pact or covenant you aren't aware of and yet have deleterious effect on your life? Still, ignorance is not an excuse for breaking the law or an accessory to those who broke the law by virtue of your relationship, willfully or ignorantly.
A sister has been moving from one man to the other for apparent no reason. Her matrimonial life was in shambles. She couldn't understand what was going on; very sweet lady ready to serve the Lord, but carrying a heavy weight of family or generational iniquity of not her own, but ignorant of. Her mother left her Dad after two male children as a result of minor squabbles and during the brief period of separation, the mother got pregnant with the sister for another man. Later during the pregnancy, family intervened and her mother reconciled with her husband. By the time her mother gave birth to her, the husband was happy she was a female and thought she was his biological child. Her mother went on to give birth to two other children; both male after her making a total of five children in the family. Few years later, the man whom she believed was her biological father died, leaving her mom to raise the five of them. No one in the family knew this truth, but three other entities know the truth: the Holy Spirit, Satan and the mom. Well, anything that is hidden in the closet and not brought into the open for treatment spiritually is a fodder for Satan and his demons to feast and make life a living hell for those involved. Our sister grew up and became successful by the world's definition of success, but that closeted secret continues to dog her in her matrimonial life. Why in her matrimonial life? Because that was the origin of the family's cloak and dagger issue. Her biological mom didn't tell our sister this dark, dark secret of her life and went to the grave with it. Our sister was and still is the darling of her siblings-all males now in distinguished careers-in three Continents and so our sister too here in America, but she isn't one of them. Our paths crossed and I invited her to The Jesus Christ Solution Center here for a weekend. She didn't believe this aspect of her life when it was revealed by the Holy Spirit. All the dramatis personae had died but the sister of the man her mom had the affairs with which produced her is still alive. That old woman disclosed that, our sister's mom came to her to tell her she was pregnant with a baby for her younger brother when she separated from her husband briefly and they mulled the idea of going for abortion. It was at this period that her husband returned pleading to have her back and our sister was born few months later and became the only daughter of the family. That was more than fifty years ago, but Satan and his demons have been here more than fifty years ago. The Holy Spirit told us what to do about the matter.
What is it that ails you? What is it that is making you to cry and weep throughout the night? Why are you depressed? Generational iniquities require serious spiritual treatment and ancestral iniquities destroy slowly and wickedly. As I have pointed out in this column in the past, once you have given your life to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are genuinely born-again and thoroughly redeemed, once you die physically you will make heaven, if you endure till the end in this visible material earthly realm (Matthew 24:13: "But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved" KJV. See also Hebrews 2:1, Hebrews 3:12-14). Consequently, the plan and artifices of Satan and his demons will not be to stop you from entering heaven; rather, they will attack you in all areas of your life including ancestral, generational and others which we shall continue next week so that your Christian life will be shambolic. What is your Christian life, if you cannot pay your bills, put nutritious food on the table, take care of your family and live a good life to the Glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? Any man or woman of God who said you are suffering for you testimony of Jesus Christ and being persecuted for righteousness sake, and that is why you cannot meet your basic needs of food, clothing and shelter is deceiving you and it is unbiblical. Our Lord Jesus Christ is not a poor man, otherwise He would not have told the Apostles and the people in Matthew 26:10-11: "Aware of this, Jesus said to them, "Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me." He repeated same in Mark 14:7: "The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me." Empty pocket and being financially broke is not a sign you are righteous. Inabilities to pay your bills, being unemployed or single are not signs that you are being persecuted for righteousness sake. To be homeless or have no food on the table for yourself and family members is not a sign that you are a true child of the Lord Jesus Christ. My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ didn't promise that we; His followers will be millionaires, billionaires and flying in private jets in this world, but He didn't tell us we will be poor, jobless, homeless and be unable to take care of our families either. Here are the three basic necessities of life He assured us-not promised us-but assured us: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes? …So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." (Matthew 6:25:31-34). Empty stomach is a not a sign you are a child of the Living God; to lose your home and become homeless is not a proof you are a real worshipper of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to own fleets of automobiles, uncountable suits and flying in private jets are not signs that you are indeed a true servant and genuine follower or pastor of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ either. (TO BE CONTINUED NEXT WEEK).
LETTERS OF THE WEEK
Hi Dr Moshood Fayemiwo, I sent you an email through your email address [email protected] and later discovered you have another similar email address as "[email protected] However, I received an instant response from your auto-service facility. Anyway, after I had sent you the emails, I stumbled onto another concluding article you wrote about the seven things to use in crosschecking the authenticity of belief of any Christian gathering. I loved it very much and discovered that it contained some of the things I wrote to you about. Keep up the good work my dear Prophet of YHWH. Here was what you wrote: "We must be extremely careful these days not to confuse the many Jesuses that are being worshiped in many of these man-made and fake churches around the world. When you attend any church and are uncomfortable with what is taught and the doctrines being dished out to you and yet the "pastors" there tell you, we are Christians too and we all worship the same Lord God and are followers of the Lord Jesus Christ too, pause and apply these seven check lists as stated in the Holy Bible to confirm or reject such a church. These seven check lists should not be limited to TB Joshua and his charade going on in Ejogbo, Lagos, Nigeria, but even to those "traditional" mainstream church organizations that advertise themselves as the authentic worshippers and followers of our Lord Jesus Christ. "You are absolutely right. May The Almighty God, YHWH, bless you immensely, and thanks---Brother Sunny Onyejiaka Odina eastern Nigeria.
Dear Sir, My name is …, I'm from Nigeria but currently not leaving in Nigeria. I'm a believer of our Lord Jesus Christ, but I think I have a lot of mistakes too. Sir, I have been following your articles and writings, I'm so much impressed by the revelations and teachings the Lord is using you to deliver. I pray that the Almighty God will continue to anoint you for His service. Sir, I want to share something about my life with you, maybe through you the Lord will direct me. As I said I've been living out of Nigeria for years seeking for greener pasture. But there is something that always bothers me. Some people often tell me that I'm a big man; this is not to deny the goodness of God in my life, but saying this often, even from some prophets made me to worry if I have missed my direction and the plan of God had for my life. Some of my people even think I have that much money but I just don't want to help others. Sir, I want to know what I should do and steps to take if what they're saying is true. I need your assistance. Thanks and God bless---Name undisclosed at author's request, Republic of China.

What can I do to break this marital spell that is over her life? I can be reached on ……. or at email. Yours in Christ, Thanks---Mr. S. G. (Maryland), USA

Every good product goes through some necessary legally-prescribed quality control and assessment procedures which guarantee the product will serve the intended purpose of the purchaser. This is called warranty clauses. In spiritual matters, warranties cannot be provided, because the purposes prayers, supplications and intercessions are offered can only be made possible by the Lord God Almighty. In this book, the Holy Spirit instructed us to give warranty clauses based on what you the reader must do rather than what is published in this book. The warranty we give is from the Word of God as revealed in the Holy Bible. We know the Holy Bible is the inerrant Word of God. "Since God is not a man that he should lie; neither the son of man that he should repent…" (Numbers 23; 19) because "God cannot lie," (Titus 1: 2) and "in which it is impossible for God to lie" (Hebrews 6:18c). Consequently, the onus rests on you the reader to do certain things as revealed in this book so that God's Warranty can be effective in your life. In other words, if you obey the commandments of God and do as He directs, His Words alone are His warranties.
