hen we disclosed through the Power of the Holy Spirit in this column that the True Lord God Almighty doesn't rule the world but the earth; we also explained that there are 21 differences between the Earth and the World. Many precious souls sent us text messages; email comments and some took the pains to call and requested we should explain further on this spiritual truth. Pointedly, virtually all those who got in touch wanted to know the 21 Differences between the Earth and the World. So we are pausing midway in our series on the 7 types of Christians on earth/world to allow the Holy Spirit do justice to these queries from our readers and brethren. The Earth is different from the World in several respects in our understanding of how the True Lord God Almighty deals with the human race.
First, The Earth was created by the True Lord God Almighty while Satan invented the world. The opening Verse in the Book of Life made this abundantly clear: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" (Gen. 1:1). Satan invented the World after Adam and Eve sinned then; "…the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life" (Gen. 3:23-24).
Second, the Earth that the True Lord God Almighty created ab initio was not only good, but very good indeed! Behold, God saw all that he had made, and it was very good" (Gen. 1:31). After the fall of our First Parents, the World that Satan invented emerged from the cursed Earth by the True Lord God Almighty in His Anger and Fury thus: "Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return" (Gen. 3:17-19). That curse was abated after Noah's Deluge (Gen. 9:1-17) but a clinical delineation of the Earth and World as oxymoronic realms could be discernible.
Third, the True Lord God Almighty Who created the Earth did not give this World to Satan; Adam and Eve did as a result of their disobedience to their Maker. Satan who stole the power, authority and dominion that God gave to Adam and Eve didn't hide this spiritual fact but confessed thus: "The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. I will give You authority over all these kingdoms and all their glory," he said. "For it has been relinquished to me, and I can give it to anyone I wish.…" (Luke 4:5-6). So for those of you asking such questions as; why did God create Satan to disturb you? Why can't He destroy that Satan anyway? If God knew and He should know, because He's Omniscient, why did He create Satan to disturb human beings? That is your answer right there from the evil mouth of Satan himself. If the Devil is putting pepper in your eyes right now; you caused it like your First Parents; Adam and Eve. Satan and his minions don't mess with me, because I have a Protector, Banner, Refuge and a Tent over me: Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Praise the Lord, Hallelujah! You too can, it is a matter of choice, period!
Fourth, the Earth that the True Lord God Almighty created has five components or realms namely: the amphibian, arboreal, terrestrial, the planetary cum eco -system and human race (Gen. 1: 1-27). The Lord provided two sources of wealth and nutrition for all His creatures: seed bearing plants for the human race and green leaves for the rest. Satan caused death and carnivores entered into the World. Furthermore, Satan polluted the nine realms of education, politics, economics, social, entertainment, arts, music, sex and culture/tradition that God intended for the human race (Mark 7:9-13).
Fifth, the Earth that the Lord God Almighty created and those who served Him are the ones He is Master, Lord of and God over their lives. Get this straight right now and now: the Almighty God does not rule all human beings; in fact, not all human beings are His children, so don't be sucked in by those spiritually complacent folks who belch out ignorantly; "We're all children of God." That is not true; we are not all children of God, although we are all creatures of God. In the World, there are children of Satan. Only those who stepped out and gave their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ are the true children of God. As John 3:16-19a stated: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. This is the verdict…" You can argue hoarse and debate that biblical verdict as you want while here in this temporary world, but when you get to the Other Side of Eternity when you die, argue it with Him and not me, period!
Sixth, the Earth that the True Lord God Almighty created ab initio predated all things (Gen. 1:1). The Earth predated all other things, while the world came after the earth. The earth will remain while the world invented; not created, but invented by Satan will perish. Ipso facto, the world has a timeline; I John 2:17: "The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever."
The seventh difference between the Earth and the world is the reason for the existence of both realms. The Earth has been part of God's original plan and He hasn't abandoned that original plan, while the world came into existence as a result of the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. As the Psalmist pointed out; "The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to mankind" (Psalm 115:16). The mankind here doesn't refer to the entire human race; but only those that have obeyed Him and have shunned the current worldly system and instead prepare for that new earth that is coming from the True Lord God Almighty. As I pointed out elsewhere, there is nothing, absolutely nothing I repeat, that the current well-organized worldly chaos has got to offer compared with the Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For those of us that have seen a smidgen of that latter world, this satanic world has no attraction. Just as John the Apostle felt when he saw the Glory, Awesomeness and Power of His Majesty in Revelation 1: 17-18: "When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: "Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades."
Eighth, the Earth is the Lord's and fullness thereof, while the world is onerously that of Satan. God and Satan are not contesting over power in heaven; neither is Satan trying to slug it out with the Maker on His power over the earth; Satan his fighting over God's sovereignty on earth. Again, for the knowledgeable, there is marked difference between Power and Sovereignty. On the other hand, the True Lord God Almighty is not contesting Satan's power and sovereignty over the world; what is at stake is authority. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ said it all: "My Kingdom is not of this world…" (John 18:36).
Ninth, the Earth is ruled and administered by the True Lord God Almighty directly while the world is ruled by Satan indirectly. Only a fool and an idiot will argue, debate and put the existence, power, glory and awesomeness of the True Lord Almighty into contestation, it is otiose; "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse" (Romans 1:20). Only the churlish soul will belch out: Can the True Lord God Almighty please stand up? The True Lord God Almighty is obvious and doesn't need to prove Himself. But unlike the True Lord God Almighty, Satan is subtle and deceptive; he and his demons beguile those that worship them, because Satan is evil and requires a large dose of ignorance to perpetuate and perpetrate his mean and insidious activities among the human race. What then is his greatest artifice? Our Lord Jesus Christ revealed off-pat: culture and traditions: Mark 7:9: "And he continued, "You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions!" (See also Matthew 15:6; Mark 7:13 & I Peter 1:18)
Tenth, The Earth is used by the True Lord God Almighty as proof of His existence while Satan uses the world as a system to deceive and put human beings into ignorance of his existence and that of his demons. The existential spiritual kerfuffle being waged ceaselessly in the minds and hearts of all human beings take place in the world.
Eleventh, the Earth is eternal while the world is temporary. In the beginning You laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. hey will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded. "(Psalm 102: 25-26). In their absence, "… I saw "a new heaven and a new earth," for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea" (Revelation 21:1).
Twelfth, we are to cater and nurture the Earth while we are to hate the worldly system. Of the earth, we read: "The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it" (Gen. 2:15). But of the world, we are commanded thus: "Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-comes not from the Father but from the world" (I John 2:15-16)
Thirteenth, the Earth is proof of the existence of the True Lord God Almighty, but it is also what He uses to punish the human race. "You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Therefore, because of you the heavens have withheld their dew and the earth its crops. I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains, on the grain, the new wine, the olive oil and everything else the ground produces, on people and livestock, and on all the labor of your hands." (Haggai 1:9-11). The worldly system on the other hand is used by Satan to make human beings complacent and have false sense of security. Those who worship Satan and his demons seem to have it all: money, power, influence, wealth, prestige, fame, pride, women, sex, fleshly lusts, and name them which are the attractions people are sucked into worshiping Satan and his demons.
Fourteenth, the Earth has its reward system through the One Who created it while the world has its own reward system as well through Satan and his principalities and demons that control the system and its appurtenances. Those of the world and belong to Satan and his demons; either ignorantly, unacknowledged, complacently or willfully serving him are not involved in any spiritual warfare, but those of us that belong to the King in this world are exhorted to: "…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).
Fifteenth The Earth alongside those human beings who are worshiping the True Lord God Almighty and have given their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ are groaning yearning for liberation, whereas the world is not yearning for deliverance. As Romans 8:19 pointed out; "For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God-referring to those of us true redeemed and Holy Spirit-filled children of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ no apologies- to be revealed."
Sixteenth, the current Worldly system is organizing four more institutions to destroy the earth namely: one world government, one world religion, one world currency and globalization. These are the institutions the Anti-Christ will latch onto for world supremacy which will compel the Lord Jesus Christ to intervene and put an end to the satanic charade that has been going on since the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden."Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived" (Revelation 13:11-14).
Seventeenth, the Earth was once cursed and destroyed by flood during the Noahic Age (Gen. 7 & 8) while the world escaped. The second destruction weapon is fire and the world will be no more in accordance with the Promise of the True Lord God Almighty as part of His Covenant with Noah on behalf of the human race (2 Peter 3:10 the works or deeds on the earth which both translate into the world will be destroyed: "But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment."
Seventeenth, these are the 21 things that will characterize the people of the world in the Last Days heralding the Second Coming of the Lord as revealed to us in the World of Life: "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves,-(selfishness)- covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." ( 2 Timothy 3:1-5KJV). Also see 2 Thessalonians 2:7-8;
Eighteenth, It is through the Earth that the True Lord God Almighty number and distribute the human race, because in the way He operates, where each human being is on the surface of the earth matters in fulfilling your God's destiny. On the other hand, Satan and his fallen angels do not care where you operate in the World; all they care is to obstruct the plans of God in your life. I will explain through the Holy Spirit. When people ask; how can I know the plan of God for my life? What is my destiny on earth-not in this world? You must first ask where God wants you to be on the Earth and not in the World. You do not belong just anywhere on earth, for you to know what God's will is for your life, you must first know where He wants you to work for Him and that is why He created places first before humans. Someone once told me that the Lord has created him to use him all over the World and I dubbed him; Mr. JJ-Jesus Junior. "These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: "Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel…" (Matthew 10:5-6). But you say ask; what of where He said Go ye into the world? That word; "world" translated from Greek actually means the earth. Check it out!
Nineteenth, On the Earth, where you are to the True Lord God Almighty is far more important than who you are; so it is not by accident that He created me a Nigerian for instance. That is why He doesn't allow us to choose our nationality, but does that for us before we were born. "The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their land" (Acts 17:24-26). Because Satan has assigned his principalities geographically, God also assigns us geographically for spiritual battle. Consequently, when you become a born-again Christian, you must ask where He has assigned you to work for Him. That was why He relocated me from Nigeria, Africa to the United States. On the other hand, Satan wants to confuse you in the World. He tells you that you belong everywhere, which is a lie. And once you do not know where on Earth you are assigned by your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to work for Him, life has no purpose and meaning.
Twentieth, How do you know which part of the Earth is your assignment rather than anywhere in the World? I have written about this in past column articles, but let us give certain clues; First, ask the Holy Spirit and He will tell you: "While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them" (Acts 13:2). Ask Him which part of the Earth He wants to use you: "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. And when they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not permit them.…" (Acts 16:6-7) A group of precious souls got in touch with us here at the Jesus Christ Solution Center, Texas few years ago about their nation. We obliged them to make the necessary change and so I concluded that another nation should be next, but the Greatest Boss-the Holy Spirit-said He had someone else and another plan in mind for that other nation and we should not go there. There are 30 Bible-revealed ways to know and discover your purpose on Earth which we have written in past column articles here. Look for the articles.
Finally, a new heaven and a new earth are coming and the True Lord God Almighty will have Pre-eminence; Paradise that was lost in the Garden of Eden through the disobedience of our First Parents; Adam and Eve shall be restored. It shan't be long. Will you be a part of this new heaven and a new earth or rather be hoodwinked into this fleeting world of Satan and his demons? The choice can't be clearer and it is your call!
DATELINE: The hullabaloo about Fulani herdsmen in certain parts of Nigeria and alleged Islamization of the nation has dominated local and international discourses of recent and precious souls have gotten in touch with us asking what is going on. We disclosed in this column in past article the menace of this crisis ever before it happened and I wrote an open letter to President Buhari about it. Here is the link on Sunday July 06, 2015:
The problem with the Buhari Administration is President Muhammadu Buhari himself. He has become like late Gen. Sani Abacha who relied on his Mullahs and clerics for honest spiritual counsels and advice. Just like Abacha's Mullahs and clerics, both local and imported failed him in the 1990s and he eventually ended up where he belonged, Buhari is toeing the same path. The same Mullahs and clerics that former President Goodluck Jonathan paid billions of Nigeria's money to Bafarawa to import from Senegal and abroad for him to win the last 2015 presidential election and they deceived him are at work in the Buhari Administration. This month, we will explain more through the power of the Holy Spirit. Watch out!

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.
