7 SPIRITUAL SIGNS THAT A PERSON WILL MAKE IT TO HEAVEN

ternal life is costly. Satan and his fallen angels are enraged. They were flushed out of heaven by the Lord God Almighty, because of pride and disobedience. For losing their hitherto homeland and being subjected to humiliation by the Lord God Almighty Who created the human race and put us in charge of the earth; these fiendish forces have vowed to oppose the True Lord God Almighty in all ways always on earth. If any prophet taught you to knock your head on the floor five times daily and pay useless homage to a religious site somewhere on earth while keeping a harem and you will go to heaven; you are sorely mistaken. You have been hoodwinked, deceived and bamboozled. Satan and his demons are enraged at their Creator; they hate the True Lord God Almighty and they hate you and me the more. Yes, you who are reading this piece. Satan hates you and wants your destruction. The hell fire prepared for him and his fallen angels is not a pretty place. It is a place of no return and they want all human beings to fall to that horrible place with them without exception. Believe me; Satan is after your soul. There is an intense spiritual warfare going on over your soul and mine. Satan and his demons do not want you and me to inherit what they lost: heaven.

Last week, I disclosed through revelatory knowledge the extent of Satan's stronghold on the human race. It is unfortunate many souls on earth are ignorant of the ferocious war over their souls by the denizens of darkness. There are only a handful of us who have full and thorough knowledge of the reality of this spiritual warfare between the forces of darkness and light over the souls of human beings on earth. If you are indeed a born-again Christian; believer and follower of our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ; you are being watched by the kingdom of evil. Satan is laser-focused on you and your activities and demonic forces are casing you and me24/7. Take it or leave it; the current world system is run by Satan and his fallen angels. The politics, the banking and economy, education, fashion, entertainment, music, sports, technology, diplomacy, military, international business, religion etc are run by Satan and his demons. The Word of Life made this plain: "We know that we are of God-referring to us born-again Christians-and that the whole world is under the power of the evil one-referring to Satan" (I John 5:19). Our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ said: "I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world-referring to Satan-is coming, and he has nothing in Me" (John 14:30). Apostle Paul described Satan and his rule on earth this way: "The god of this age-referring to Satan-has blinded the minds of unbelievers so they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God" (2 Corinthians 4:4). If you're a truly-regenerated and genuinely born-again Christian and still unconvinced that Satan is the god and ruler of this current earthly system, Jesus Christ Who we call Lord, Master and Savior declared to you and I that His Kingdom which we aspire to in future is not of this world. Hear Him: "My Kingdom is not of this world…" (John 18:36). That should be plain enough and tell you that, as one of Jesus Own, you and I do not belong to this current world system.

Over and over again, the early apostles warned Christ's believers and genuine followers: "Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him (or her)" (I John 2:15). Some Christians sing the hymn that "This World is Not My Own and I am just passing By," but their perfunctory lifestyles belie that song. Do we really mean it and know the import of that song: "I Have Decided to Follow Jesus, No Turning Back and No Going Back?" Consequently, can we know that a person can and will make it to heaven? As disclosed last week, there are less than 20 percent populations of the world that are truly and genuinely worshipping the True Lord God Almighty. In other words, there is a negligible few that will enter the Kingdom of our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ. Can we know this negligible few? Are you part of this few habitués and potential residents of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ? Here are the 7 major checklists to apply to your life to be certain you are a candidate of the Kingdom of my Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ as disclosed in the Holy Bible.

Salvation: When an army overruns and captures a territory, it subjugates the citizens of that conquered territory to its rule. Satan and his demons were displaced from their homeland; heaven. They were flushed out of that Elysian Place by the Lord God Almighty as we read in Revelation 12: 7-12: "And war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time." If you think your life here on earth is to enjoy and live it up amid Satan and his demons, you're sorely mistaken. We are at war, not by choice but by necessity. You either fight this spiritual war now or perish!

Adam and Eve, as our First Parents fell into the booby traps of Satan and his fallen angels which gave Satan and his demons the legality to seize this earth and thus become gods and goddesses. This was how Satan became the ruler of this world. The Almighty God Himself had to put into motion a rescue mission to save the human race from Satan and his demons. While Satan and his demons found some human beings as acolytes; there are also some of us who resent Satan and his demons. We must be saved from the illegal government of Satan on earth. That rescue mission was undertaken by the Lord Jesus Christ. "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, No One Comes to the Father but By Me" (John 14:6), Jesus shouted. A Bigger Power than Satan must come to this earth to displace Satan's illegal government in the world. That was what Jesus Christ did precisely 2,000 years ago. "…This is why the Son of God was revealed; to destroy the works of the devil" (I John 3:8).

Jesus Christ had rescued us from the stranglehold of Satan and his wicked spirits. He did it by shedding His Blood on Calvary; for blood is life. That was the ransom that Satan as the Chief Kidnapper of the human race demanded before you and me could be rescued. The plan of Satan was that once Jesus Christ died, He would not be able to come back to life again. But Power pass power; my Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ came back to life again after three days. He defeated Satan and his demons on the Cross and emerged Victorious; Hallelujah! Prophet Mohammad Abdallah died and is gone forever! Gautama Buddha died and couldn't rise up again; he is dead forever! No other so-called founders of religious sects in history has died and promised to come back. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Only One Who said: "Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End" (Revelation 22:12-13).

This Jesus Christ is the Only One in history Who claimed to be God Almighty. He said He came to rescue any human being who believed in Him from Satan and his diabolical fiends and thus offer us salvation. This Jesus Christ is the Only One in human history Who said: "In My Father's house are many mansions. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you may be also" (John 14:2-3). So I ask you; are you saved from Satan and his imps? Have you been rescued by Jesus Christ from the chokehold of Satan and can't breathe? Do you want to be free now? You can truly and transparently be free, because; "…if the Son of man sets you free, you will be free indeed" (John 8:36). You can be free right now! Here is how: "Do not say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into heaven?' (that is, to bring Christ down) "or 'Who will descend into the deep" (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved" (Romans 10:7-10). This is the first sign to know that you will make it to heaven. You must confess Jesus Christ as Lord and ask Him to come into your life.

Holy Spirit: - But salvation is the minimum requirement for making heaven, but as we all know, minimum requirement can be lost. Many young men and women are admitted to higher institutions annually and many of them become drop-outs. When you are saved, you are on your way to heaven, but you are not yet in heaven, because only "… the one who perseveres to the end will be saved" (Matthew 24:13). Consequently, what you need as your anchor to making it to the end is the Holy Spirit. That was the reason our Lord Jesus Christ declared to Mr. Nicodemus: "Very truly I tell you, no one can see the Kingdom of God unless they are born again" (John 3:3). What it means is that, you must be spiritually cleansed from inside out spiritually which entails three spiritual surgical operations to be done by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself namely: a new heart of flesh to replace your biologically Adamic heart of stone; a new spirit to replace your birthed spirit and finally the Holy Spirit (Ezekiel 36:23-26). You must pass through these three spiritual transformations before you can be sure of persevering to heaven. How do you get this Holy Spirit? Here is how as revealed by the Lord Jesus Christ: "So if you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him" (Luke 11:13). It is important you are sure you will make it to heaven and have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit as the assurance, because "…if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ-referring to the Holy Spirit-they do not belong to Christ" (Romans 8:9).

Witnessing: - Immediately you are indwelled with the Holy Spirit, you are now empowered and on a roll. You can't keep your mouth shut anymore, because there are too many souls still to be rescued. The artifice of Satan and his demons on earth is fetish ignorance of the human race on the malevolent activities of Satan on earth. No wonder Hosea says human beings are destroyed from lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). The Holy Spirit will open your spiritual eyes so you can broadcast to the whole world that Satan is a defeated foe and you are a victor and other human beings can become victors as well. Another sign of assurance that you will make heaven is witnessing to unbelievers about the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ; because Jesus Christ Himself warned you and me as His followers: "Therefore, everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven" (Matthew 10:32; See also Luke 12:8). You can never remain in the closet as a Christian and make it to heaven. You must declare your allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ openly and unashamedly.

Holiness & Righteousness: - Entering heaven hasn't anything, nadir, zilch, and zero to do with money. If you are rich and aren't born-again, you will perish in hell with Satan and his demons, period! If you are poor and aren't born-again, you will likewise perish with Satan and his rebellious angels in the Nether Gloom as well. No matter your title on earth; general overseer, pastor, elder, evangelist, teacher, apostle, reverend, prophet, missionary etc and aren't born-again, you are on your way to hell. If you continue to sin and do not live a holy and righteous life, no matter how large your church congregation is and how expensive and expansive your private jet, you will likewise perish, period! The Lord Jesus Christ declared that;" You and I must be holy as He is holy and without holiness and righteousness, no one will ever see Him. These messages of money, money and money and sermon of prosperity that have suffused today's church are from the pit of hell. Your finances and the amount of money you have in your bank accounts are not the signs of your salvation and making heaven. You will die and leave everything right here on earth. See how Apostle John put it in his epistolary: "No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God's child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister" (I John 3:9-10). The seed of God that will prevent you from sinning and ensure you're indeed a child of God is the Holy Spirit. Consequently, another litmus test to apply to your life of assurance to heaven is this: do you practice disobedience to the Words and Commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ? Do you sin? Are you still sinning? Do you continue to sin? Are you holy? Do you practice righteousness? Apply holiness and righteousness to your life and render a good or damning verdict!

God's Will for Your Life: Do you know why you're here on earth? Have you discovered the purpose of the Creator for your life? Are you here to live it up for your selfish and egotistical ends or here for something greater than you? What is your purpose in life? If you cannot answer these questions, you are still ignorant of the meaning of life. Billions of souls are on this earth wandering and ignorantly alive of their purpose and mission on earth. You may be rich, famous, and materially comfortable, but still ignorant of your existence. A brother brought a business proposal to me and at first glance, it was money -spinning business idea, but the Holy Spirit told me to pass. I nixed the business proposal instantly. Everything and every human being created and put on this earth has a purpose to accomplish. Here is how the Word of Life put it: "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do" (Ephesians 2:10). You do not determine your life's purpose, but you discover it. You cannot discover your life's purpose until you bow down and give your life to the One Who created and sent you to this earth in the first place. When you buy a new car, you do not call the manufacturers on how to drive it, but look for the car's manual in the compartment glove on how to operate the vehicle. The car's makers and manufacturers had already finished their work and it is up to you now to find how to operate and drive the car. Similarly, you and I are finished works; total package in the Hands of our Creator ever before we were born. Our task is how to unpack this total package called life's purpose.

The Almighty God did not put you and I here to start groping in the dark and guessing how to figure out our existential raison d'être. After you are saved, born-again, indwelled with the Holy Spirit, and start pursuing and practicing holiness and righteousness; your next move is how you will do precisely what He created you to achieve here on earth. There are only two ways to find out your life's purpose in broad absolute terms namely; does my life's purpose expand the Kingdom of Jesus Christ on earth or increase the ranks of Satan and his demons? Once you are able to answer this life-defining question, you have discovered your mission and purpose in life. Last week, I disclosed through the Holy Spirit that there are only two sets of people on earth; those going to heaven and those going to hell, period! The same in our individual purpose; your life's mission is either bringing souls to heaven or hell, period! There is no median lane. Every action, activity and engagement you and I do on earth will either bring human souls to heaven or to hell, period!

Spiritual Warfare: Immediately you have discovered your life's purpose on earth as revealed by the Holy Spirit, Satan and his demons will come after you. Trust me; I fight the good fight of faith every day. If you aren't being attacked by Satan and his demons as a born-again, Holy Spirit-filled child of the King, then something is amiss. Satan and his fallen spirits are after the souls of human beings and so I am too after human souls for my Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ. Consequently, clashes and confrontations are inevitable. Satan doesn't attack civilians, but soldiers of Christ. See how one of our earlier military generals put it: "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms" (Ephesians 6:10-12).

The moment you became a born-again Christian, you have inevitably been enlisted into the army of the Living God on earth. Just as Satan has Satanists, witches and wizards fighting human beings so they can win their souls to hell fire; you and I have also been conscripted willy-nilly into this warfare to win souls for Jesus Christ. You must kit yourself with six weaponry arsenals for this daily battle raging for the souls of human beings on earth namely: helmet of salvation, breastplate of righteousness, shield of faith, buckled your belt of peace, you must wear the shoes of the gospel and finally, your offensive weapon is the Word of God. Hallelujah!

This war is deadly! It is real! You can't escape it, unless you are not a bonafide soldier of Christ. It is a daily battle and like I have disclosed numerously, you either fight this battle or perish. Our Lord Jesus Christ told us plainly: "Do not assume that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace but a sword" (Matthew 10:34). Our Lord Jesus Christ didn't declare Jihad here as Satan deceived Mohammad Abdallah, the founder of Islam who and his followers start beheading fellow human beings. No, the sword our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ referred to here is spiritual sword, because we have only one enemy; Satan, because "…your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour" (1 Peter 5:8). Know this now; your enemy is not your husband, wife or in-laws; your neighbors, your ex-wife or husband; your siblings, your boss at work etc; your real enemy who may be instigating any human being to make life dreary and uncomfortable for you is Satan, period! If you concentrate on any human being as your enemy, you are fighting amiss; but when you frontally take the war to Satan and his demons through the Power of the Holy Spirit, the Blood of Jesus Christ and His Words in your mouth, you are victor. Praise the Lord!

Reality of Heaven & Hell: - Every trained and knowledgeable military general knows when a war is being won and lost. Once a military man knows he is on the verge of defeat, he calls for a truce, an armistice and surrender to the victorious army. Besides in rare cases where soldiers resort to self-immolation and suicide like the Japanese kamikaze for losing a war; the rules of engagement in warfare is offer a truce to the opposing enemies in the face of imminent defeat. So also in spiritual warfare; Satan was defeated in the heavenly war and Jesus Christ defeated him on the Cross as well. Jesus Victory is our victory and His triumph over the Devil is our triumph as well. The reality of heaven and hell are signs that you have fought the good fight of faith and as Apostle Paul rightly said, you are expecting your eternal reward in heaven. Similarly, those fighting on the side of Satan will also expect Satan and his demons to reward them in hell. It is as simple as that! So I ask you on a final note as you're reading this; are you heading to heaven or hell? You should have been able to figure that out by now.

ENROLL YOUR CHILD NOW AT THE EMMANUEL ONLINE CHRISTIAN ELEMENTARY ACADEMY FOR FALL 2020

Childhood is a pivotal moment in a person's life that determines the character and the future of an individual. As Alexander Pope, the 18th-century British poet and author once said, it is the way the twig is bent so it will grow and it is through early education that the human mind is formed. Parents are the major influence. Children should be placed at the forefront of all developmental goals of nations because they are the most vulnerable segment of society in all poverty indexes; yet, they are also our future. We are in a world of pronounced social inequalities and increased anti-immigration feelings which we leave millions, if not billions of children behind, especially in developing nations. We shall make available a secured future and world of inclusion for the most disadvantaged children of the world through early childhood education.

LATEST ON EDO 2020 AND OBASEKI'S DEFECTION TO THE PDP IN NIGERIA

Remember I wrote last week that Gov. Godwin Obaseki should forget about contesting the September 19, 2020 Governorship Election on the platform of the APC? That has been confirmed by his disqualification and his formal declaration for the opposition PDP. Here is the link to that prophecy published last week on Sunday June 07, 2020 (https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/060720.html).

I equally disclosed that there are many twists and turns that would litter the Edo 2020 race between now and September 19, 2020 as this link also bears our prophecy out as published in this column fortnight ago on Monday June 01, 2020. The twists and turns of events have just started and more intrigues and surprises are in the offing https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/060120.html). Again, as I have stated by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Godwin Obaseki must put in place what we were told to deliver to him known as the 7 Spiritual Formulae contained in the Word of Life. It is called the Jehoshaphat Victory as recorded in 2 Chronicles 20. In the coming weeks, I will give in detail the blow-by-blow account of how the governorship election results will go even before a single vote is cast.
