"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens; a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace." (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8).
"Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I declare the end from the beginning, and ancient times from what is still to come. I say, 'My purpose will stand, and all My good pleasure I will accomplish.'… (Isaiah 46:9-10).
"After he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered he had said this, and they believed both the Scriptures and what Jesus had said" (John 2:22).
n Monday June 21, 2021, these were our prophecies on current President of the African Development Bank AfDB) on possible calls on him by Nigerians for the star performer to contest for the 2023 Presidential Election. Here is the link to the prophecy almost a year ago https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/062121.html
"AKINWUMI ADESINA: - He is currently President of African Development Bank-ADB-Abidjan, Cote D'Ivoire. He has the Midas Touch to turn everything he embarks upon into success. A first-rated intellectual and a go-getter anytime any day. He has many laudatory prizes in his hat and his Afrocentric credentials and love for the development of his native Nigeria nay Africa -the Black Race-are things to cherish. While he was Nigeria's secretary of agriculture under erstwhile President Goodluck Jonathan, he comported himself with decorum and dignity without any blemish. He is also a man of faith and no wonder his name has featured as a presidential contender come 2023. So, we took his name to Him who lives forever and forever and the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead and the ruler of the kings of the earth and He disclosed thus: "I am using him where he is now, and I have not finished with him yet."
For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit, we were all baptized into one body-Jews or Greeks, slaves or free-and all were made to drink of one Spirit. For the body does not consist of one member but of many. The eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you," nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you." On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it" (I Corinthians 12:12-27).
The Lord God Almighty said Adesina should gladly and enthusiastically support the man He is preparing for a better Nigeria come 2023…"
* Adewumi Adesina: His name has been mentioned as a possible presidential contender for 2023, but the Lord Jesus Christ said Adesina is not the one He will use to cleanse Nigeria come 2023. (Our words on Adesina published here on Monday June 21, 2021)
On Wednesday May 17, 2022, Dr Akinwumi Adesina himself confirmed our prophecy published in this column almost a year ago thus:
The President of the African Development Bank, Akinwunmi Adesina, has given reasons he can't run for Nigeria's Presidency in 2023. He gave the reasons in a statement on Tuesday titled, 'Statement by Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, President, African Development Bank'. The PUNCH had reported that a support group purchased and submitted the N100m Presidential form of the All-Progressives Congress for the top banker last week.
In the statement, Adesina said his current responsibility as the AfDB's president won't make him available to contest Nigeria's presidency. The statement read, "I have been extremely humbled by several calls from Nigerians at home and abroad that I should consider running for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. "I am very touched by all who have gone to great extent, with such huge sacrifices, of their own volition, to consider me worthy to be proposed for potential consideration. "The coalition groups of youth, women, farmers, physically challenged and well-meaning Nigerians that have done this have expressed their genuine free will, political right, freedom of expression and association for my consideration, with the interest of Nigeria at heart. "While I am deeply honored, humbled and grateful for all the incredible goodwill, kindness, and confidence, my current responsibilities at this time do not allow me to accept to be considered. "I remain fully engaged and committed to the mission that Nigeria, Africa and all the non-African shareholders of the African Development Bank have given me for Africa's development. "I remain fully focused on the mission of supporting the accelerated development and economic integration of Africa."
The PUNCH had reported that the AfDB's regulations bar its President from partisan politics. Specifically, Paragraph 2 of Article 38 of the agreement establishing AfDB, titled 'Prohibition of Political Activity; the International Character of the Bank', states that "The Bank, its President, Vice Presidents, officers, and staff shall not interfere in the political affairs of any member (country); nor shall they be influenced in their decisions by the political character of the member (country) concerned." Paragraph 3 of the article states that "The President, Vice Presidents, officers and staff of the Bank, in discharge of their offices, owe their duty entirely to the Bank and to no other authority." Similarly, the AfDB code of conduct bars its executive from partisan politics. Section 10 of the Code reads: "Although Executive Directors are elected representatives of governments from their constituencies, they shall during their tenure of office as executive directors refrain from participating in active politics in their home countries or elsewhere."
NOTE: Dr Adesina could easily have resigned as the president of the bank and throw his hat into the race without breaching the bank's code of ethics. The only thing is that once he resigned his position to contest the 2023 presidential election, he cannot return to his job anymore, whether he loses or wins. The reason he declined the calls of Nigerians for contesting has been revealed last year in our series of prophecies on the 2023 Presidential Election in Nigeria.
GIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST TODAY! HE IS COMING BACK SOON TO TAKE HIS OWN OUT OF THE WORLD
There is no other life to live apart from the life of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is our Creator, believe me. He is not a prophet, He is the Lord God Almighty Himself, because He said so in John 10:30; "I and the Father are one." Again, He said in John 14:9 thus: "
Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'? There is plethora of Bible references for you to know that my Lord, Master, and Savior Jesus Christ is the Sovereign Lord God Almighty Himself. So, if you think you believe in God, you must give your life to our Lord Jesus Christ, because as He again declared to us in John 14:06: "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
You can give your life to Jesus Christ now! Say this prayer now using Romans 10:9-10: "Jesus Christ, I come to You now with penitent heart and contrite spirit. I confess I am a sinner. I have been living my life the way I want, which is a rebellion against You. I know that nothing good resides in me. That is why I come to You today to forgive me of my sins and rebellion. I believe in my heart that You came to this world over 2,000 years ago. You were born by the Virgin Mary in the city of Bethlehem of Judea. You lived with us for 33 years and was sinless. Then, You went onto the Cross and died for my sins and sins of the world. Then You rose up again three days later after defeating Satan and the hordes of darkness in the nether gloom and today, you are holding the keys of death and hades in Your Hands. Jesus Christ, I confess You with my mouth as my Lord, Master, and Savior. Your Death on the Cross had paid the penalty for my sins and Your resurrection was for my justification. From today onward, I will obey, worship, and praise You. I will not live for my self-centered and egoistical life anymore. I will do what You want me to do. I will serve You for the remainder years of my life. I will tell others about You and witness to others about Your love and works of redemption and finished work on Calvary. Take me as Your Own. Seal me with the Holy Spirt. Enable me to do what You have created me for on this earth. Use me for Your Glory Jesus Christ and let me live my full life span. Let me fulfill my destiny and after I have accomplished the purpose for which You created me and sent me to this earthly temporary realm, I will return to You as the Shepherd of my spirit and soul reign with You in Your Kingdom for eternity in Your Holy Name, Amen."
It is done now. You are saved and are now a child of the Living God. He is your father from now onward. Pray that this Jesus Christ will direct you to a Holy Spirit-filled and Word-based Church in your neighborhood where you can join other believers to grow in your new faith from now on. Please be careful you do not keep company with your former friends and crowds so they will not draw you back to your former ways of life. Remember the Holy Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17: "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come The old has gone, the new is here!" Remember you confessed your sins to the Lord Jesus Christ, and He forgave you, because He cannot lie. Make sure you do not renege on our vows never to commit those sins again. Find a Bible believing Church and tell the pastor or shepherd there that you have just given your life to our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ and you want him to walk you through walking the Christian Walk. Hallelujah! Tell him I sent you and if moved by the Holy Spirit to contact me, shoot me an email: email@example.com. Congratulations and welcome to the family of the Living God!
WAR IS TERRIBLE! THINK AGAIN. BETTER TO TALK THAN WAR-WAR
The heart-wrenching stories and pictures that dot the global mediascape coming out of the South-Asian nation of Afghanistan are assaults on our collective consciousness as human beings. The precipitous withdrawal of the United States after two decades of occupation are eyesores to the rest of the world that, when the chips are down, no foreign power, outsiders and organizations or otherness will come to develop your nation. Between September 11, 2001, when President George W. Bush invaded that nation and last week when President Joseph R. Biden withdrew our troops, the United States spent $2 trillion on the war against the Taliban. That staggering amount translates to $300million per day. If you divide that amount by head for the poor people of Afghanistan, that translates to $50,000. In the war, 2,300 US soldiers perished, 75,000 Afghan soldiers were massacred while 71,334 civilians died with many unaccounted for. As a matter of fact, the true costs of the war may never be known.
Many people became millionaires, toads of war who cashed in bigly like the runaway Ashraf Ghani who helped himself to unknown amount of the Green Backs. The military industrial complex also helped themselves handsomely while the poor, the women, young girls, the marginalized and the vulnerable are on their own. That is war! For those who are beating the drumbeats of war elsewhere, they should look no further of what awaits them. War is terrible. It is not a dinner party. Why can't people of the world understand and get it? Satan and his demons love and crave blood of human beings and are behind all the major wars in human history.
