THE CHRISTIAN WALK

he widow had no idea her late husband had piled up debts which put his family in ruins aftermath of his demise. The creditors kept coming and threatening her and the kids with devastating consequences. Just as it is today so it was in those days that children of debtors could be seized in lieu of family debts and with two sons at that; it was fair game for the Shylocks of those days. But there was a silver lining; the widow's deceased husband lived a Godly life, except he screwed up his finances. With nowhere to turn to and no one to run to; the miserable widow took her case to the man of God. Elisha asked her, if she had anything, just anything of value in her house. You see, no matter how hard it is for anyone, there is not a time you won't have something and when you give that something to the Lord God Almighty of multiplication that something; no matter how infinitesimal in human eyes, but in God's Hands, it becomes a great thing. He is the Only God Who could turn a mere stick in the hand of Moses into a delivering rod. As He asked Moses on Mt Horeb at the burning bush: "What is that in your hand?" (Exodus 4:2). When Moses turned a staff/stick over to the Lord, it was no longer a mere stick as He told him; "You will use the stick to perform wonders," and he did.
The words of the Almighty God are powerful. He created the heavens and the universe by His spoken words. The Psalmist knew this perfectly well and so declared: "By the word of the Lord God the heavens were made, and all the stars by the breath of His mouth" (Psalm 33:6). When He said; "Let there be light and there was light" (Genesis 1:3), there would ever be another power in any realm to stop those words from being fulfilled. That creative Word of God which brought all things into life and still does today is our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Word of God as John disclosed: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made, and without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome itů.The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:1-5 &14). God Almighty is Life and so His Word is Life and that Life is our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ. Whenever the Lord God the Father says a thing via His Word, Jesus Christ the Lord and Word of God steps out to execute the Father's Will; consequently, any word that proceeds out of the Mouth of the Lord God cannot return void, but must actualize and bring to pass that very thing or matter the words are intended. This is what is confusing to many souls today that are spiritually blind; just like the Israelis of those days when our Lord Jesus Christ disclosed to them: " For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of Him who sent me" (John 6:38). The Lord God the Father is inside the Lord God the Son and both are uniformly bounded together by the Holy Spirit; thus no one can have the Father without the Son and vice-versa just as my word is me and me my word. After all, He created us human beings in His Own Image and Likeness, Hallelujah!
For those of us genuinely called and truly anointed by the Lord Jesus Christ, when we speak His Words as directed by the Holy Spirit, things begin to happen. Elisha was indeed truly and genuinely called so he spoke the words of life into the widow's situation. "I only have one jar of oil in the house," she agonized before the man of God. Elisha instructed the widow to enter her closet and pour the last pint of oil into all available vessels she could find and go sell it and defray the family's enormous debts. The woman complied with the instructions of the man of God, but she made a mistake; she poured the jar of oil into only two vessels and that was all she got. If she had scoured the entire neighborhood and lined up all the vessels in the town as long as it could go, she could have become a millionaire from the sale of the oil, but she shortchanged herself. You can read the full account in 2 Kings 4:1-7.
You see, the Sovereign Lord God Almighty will only go far with you as long as you're faithfully ready to go with Him. When the Lord God made a promise to Abraham as father of many nations, Abraham had no child. How could a barren be father of many nations? To our limited human thinking, it was funny, but in order to increase the faith of Abraham, the Lord God brought him out and told him to look up onto the sky: If you could count the numbers of the stars in the sky, that is how many your sons and daughters would be-Genesis 15:5. Because Papa Abraham believed the Lord God and His Words; that act of faith and belief was the reason he was called the father of faith. When the children of Israel besieged the fortress of Jericho, the Lord God gave them an instruction for victory thusly: March round the walls once for six days and on the seventh day, March round seven times and shout for victory by blowing seven trumpets by the soldiers (Joshua 6:1-7). Same instructions were given to Naaman, the Syrian military general who was a leper. Elijah delivered the words of the Lord God to him; Go wash in the Jordan River seven times and you will be cured (2 Kings 5:10). These legionary instances in the Holy Bible demonstrated that the Almighty God operates by protocols.
If the children of Israel had not followed God's instructions in conquering Jericho, they would have lost the victory. If Naaman had washed six times in Jordan River, his leprosy would have remained. The Holy Spirit instructed me to tell a governor serving in an African nation that he would retain his position as chief executive not via vote casting through the ballot box, but the apex court in the land would retain him. But here was the bizarre instruction of the Holy Spirit; the Supreme Court of his nation would not give a reason for their ruling. The governor looked at me askance and replied quizzically: "How is that possible?" Well, I answered him as our Lord Jesus Christ answered while physically with us 2,000 years ago: "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible" (Matthew 19:26). About three months later, the court verdict came and exactly as the Holy Spirit said was the outcome and the governor is still on his seat as chief executive of his state. Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!
In this column on Sunday June 07, 2020 we told Governor Godwin Obaseki he should forget about running for re-election on the APC platform. Here is the link to the prophecy:-( https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/060720.html). He may have thought it was a joke, but he is now running on the platform of the opposition PDP. Will he return for his second and final term as governor of Edo State?

By Nigerian standard, Gov. Obaseki has performed very well as chief executive of Edo State. He has done everything right and should be returned as governor for his second and final term, but unfortunately, power belongs to the Lord God Almighty. What do we mean by power belongs to the Lord God Almighty? It simply means, whatever position you are right now, if you had sought the counsel of the Almighty God and listens to His instructions, you will retain that position. Just as the Lord God Almighty gives power to human beings, so also Satan gives power to human beings who are ready and willing to pay the price of Satan. I mentioned earlier on that, the widow could have made a lot of money, if she had not limited the Power of God Almighty to bless her beyond the two vessels as instructed by Elisha. The problem of Mr. Obaseki is doing everything right, but neglecting the vital instruction of the Almighty God for success. His problem is like buying a Rolls Royce which is a very expensive automobile of luxury, but for inexplicable reason, one of the tyres of the automobile is removed. That expensive car of luxury loses its usefulness. Hear what our Lord Jesus Christ said to the Pharisees and Sadducees: "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You pay tithes of mint, dill, and cumin. But you have disregarded the weightier matters of the law: justice, mercy, and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the formerů" (Matthew 23: 23).
You can do everything right from the beginning and mess up in the little details and mess up the entire thing. Moses was faithful from the very first he was called by the Lord God Almighty, but he failed in one act of faith and obedience and didn't make it to the Promised Land. I am told that a Boeing 747 jet liner carrying nearly 900 passengers once crashed with no survivor because of a small bolt that the engineers forgot to fix which led to the disaster. When it comes to the spiritual instructions of the Almighty God, there is no room for near or partial obedience. Every instruction must be followed to the letter just as Moses was instructed by the Lord God Almighty to follow to the minute details the construction of the Ark of Covenant according to the pattern that was shown him on the sacred Mount. The English Language has a high-sounding mouthful word for this: persnickety.
Here is how the Saturday September 19, 2020 Governorship Election in Edo State will go. Election results will not be declared until Wednesday September 25, 2020. The good people of Edo State will not know their governor until Wednesday September 25, 2020 and the "winner" of the election will not be the governor. Governor Godwin Obaseki will not "win" the election on Saturday September 19, 2020. Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu will not win either and so the next governor of Edo State will not be chosen through the ballot box; rather, the court of Nigeria will chose the governor of Edo State for the people as my prophecy declares.
