hen the True Lord God Almighty created the earth, He gave all sovereign powers to Man. Adam was the representative of the man as a generic word and not in gender terms as being interpreted after the fall. Eve was already inside Adam, and she was one of his ribs thus, when the Almighty God brought Eve to Adam, he knew instantly she was taken from him and exclaimed: "The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man" (Genesis 2:23). Man and woman were created not as equal, but as complimentary partners with separate duties and responsibilities which the one cannot discharge without the other and vice-vasa. These complimentary duties require each to need the other, because what the man didn't have, the woman has it thus the two cannot do without the other. It is not a matter of superiority versus inferiority, senior versus junior; rather, complementarity. The human anatomy is a perfect example; which one is superior to the other between mouth and tongue? Only a simpleton will say the tongue is superior to the mouth and vice-vasa; the two are dependent on each other and must be in harmony for one to eat. So, the Almighty God created Adam and Eve; and He created the marital institution as the locale of this complimentary relationship where children can then come to life and replicate the same complimentary basis thus fulfilling the commandment of the Creator in Genesis 1:28: "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground." Ipso facto, God gave the human race power, authority, and dominion over the earth.
THE FALL OF ADAM AND EVE AND THE RISE OF OTHER POWERS
If Adam and Eve hadn't disobeyed the True Lord God Almighty by eating the fruit of the tree of good and evil, the human race would not have been aping after any forms of power. The family which is the first institution that the Almighty God created was sufficient for the human race to domicile peacefully on earth with one another and carry out the purposes of the Creator for each of us. Sadly, Satan deceived man and that guile introduced the human race to seven other powers which would have been unnecessary, if our First Parents hadn't messed up in the Garden of Eden. When the Almighty God drove Adam and Eve out of that Elysian Garden, Satan and his fallen angels who had already been driven out of the heavens were waiting for disobedient Adam and Eve like them. Armed with all that the Lord God Almighty gave to Man through Adam, Satan planted their sovereignty over the human race and the earth and as Satan told our Lord Jesus Christ; "Then the devil led Him -referring to our Lord Jesus Christ-up to a high place and showed Him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, "I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. So, if You worship me, it will all be Yours." (Luke 4:5-7). I pointed out in this column last week that the Almighty God will never share His Glory with anyone, and that Glory is what Satan wants, because that is what to be worshiped is all about. Satan and his rebellious angels known as fallen angels, principalities and demons wanted to break this monopoly of God's sole right to be worshipped and today, they have succeeded as many deluded and beguiled human beings worship and pay obeisance to these renegades fallen angels. But they will not go far, because the True Lord God Almighty Who is the Only Creator has a warning for them: "But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and eternal King. The earth, quakes at His wrath, and the nations cannot endure His indignation. "Tell them this: 'These gods, who did not make the heavens and the earth, will perish from the earth and from under the heavens" (Jeremiah 10:10-11). This Sovereign Lord Who says He would not share His Worship with Satan and his rebellious hordes has set a time for their evisceration and final banishment from the surface of the earth at His appointed time as He told the Prophet Zephaniah: "The LORD will be terrifying to them when He starves all the gods of the earth. Then the nations of every shore will bow in worship to Him, each in its own place" (Zephaniah 2:11; See also Psalm 96:5 & Isaiah 2:18). The death knell of Satan and his rebels had been pronounced and the final execution is coming soon, and these cursed spirits know this as a fact, but meanwhile, they want to take as many human beings as possible with them to their final abode of eternal torment. In order to enjoy their temporary accolades and worship from those human beings they can deceive, beguiled and bamboozled, Satan is cashing in on human souls through the following seven types of powers on earth which we shall elaborate below:
Physical Power: - This is the ability to exercise dominance over another human being through sheer brawn and raw prowess. Among those who have leveraged on this type of power are the celebrated boxers in history, the likes of Hercules, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Hannibal, Rocky Marciano, Floyd Mayweather and many more. Here too you can include the great wrestlers of our time. Remember Samson of old and his brawn prowess? There are also the great footballers of our time too such as Pele, Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo etc. Many of these seekers of physical power have made pacts with Satan and his demons for fame, money, power, celebrity status and glory. Other non-benign acts of employing physical power for advantage albeit criminal are armed robbers, terrorists, pedophiles, rapist etc.
Intellectual Power: You will be shocked that many of the so-called philosophers, thinkers, theorists, and renowned intellectuals of the world throughout human history relied on external powers to write great books, theorize, and befuddle the people with their highfalutin jargons that draw humans away from the Creator. Many of these clerkish minds got inspirations from demons directly from the pit of hell. Socrates once disclosed that he was in constant touch with his muse. Who would deny that Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace were inspired by Satan to propound that idiotic theory known as Evolution which has become the staple of the so-called world intellectual community today? This demonic theory has led and continues to lead scores to hell. Can we deny that Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin and many of those so-called communists and Marxists our youths worship and idolize weren't inspired by Satan? Was it not Satan that inspired Johanne Rowling to pen the demonic series known as Harry Potters to enchant and lure our kids to witchcraft? Today, these intellectual power seekers have fame, money-by the way, Ms Rowling became a billionaire overnight from the sales of Harry Potters-celebrity status etc. Satan deceived them all by offering them earthly power, honor and glory and many souls on earth today are after same demonic power! All authors and writers of occultic books, pornographic and voyeurism materials fall into this category. Can we deny the incalculable damage that Larry Flint's publications have wrought on millions of American youths? I was in New Orleans the other day and was sick for days at the damage Flint's publications have done to our youths.
Financial Power: Since the Holy Bible says money solves all problems according to King Solomon in Ecclesiastes 10:19, can we deny the intense and monomaniacal desires of many souls to attain financial power? Satan and his demons are using this quest of many human souls today to lure billions to hell. Who can deny what many souls have done or willing to do to attain financial power? Among those with financial power are the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, and many more who will love to read about on Forbes. If you knew what many of the so-called billionaires of the world we envy, lionize, and celebrate did and many have done to amass their so-called billions, you will be shocked. How about the argosies of money rituals, Yahoo-Yahoo Boys and the rest young men and women engage in today to attain financial power?
Feminine Power: If you deny the veritable power of feminism throughout history, you are the most to be pitied. A whole nation could not take Samson out, but when the contract was outsourced to Delilah, Samson was a goner. A woman will always get what she wants, including the head of John the Baptist. You will be shocked to know that the lust to satisfy women has led many men to do what they normally wouldn't do, but at the back of every man's aspiration is a woman to please, or impress either as a spouse, paramour, or mother. It is said that Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida staged his August 27, 1985, military coup at the instigation of his late wife, Maryam. When a man's penis stands up, his brain takes a French leave so the old saying. Satan deliberately went after Eve in the Garden, and he succeeded. Among the exercise of Feminine Power by the daughters of Eve are the music, art, entertainment, and the fashion industries. You will be surprised that those name brands and popular fashion houses, ranging from Gucci, Versace, L'Oréal etc. to the designer wristwatches and expensive cologne, automobiles etc. of the world have pacts with supernatural forces as agents in exchange for money, fame, celebrity, earthly power, and glory.
Political Power: The late Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana was so inebriated with power to the illusory vision of being deified that he once said: "Seek ye first the political power and all other things shall be handed unto you." He denied the existence of the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ and at his tyrannical worst in the '60s was feeding his lions with the flesh of his political enemies. This type of power is very attractive, because it opens the door to other powers either directly or indirectly as Nkrumah once said. Even in its elementary definition, politics is the authoritative allocation of resources in the modern society, but only in the secular sense. Political scientists goofed when they use the word: "authoritative" because the politician who holds political power inescapably derives the power from the people. Again, the secular mind misses this point, for while political power is the segue to other powers, the politicians of the world rely on the next type of power for both authority and legitimacy. Since the ultimate goal of a politician is power, there is the need to legitimize that power through authority and thus a recourse to kingmakers. Consequently, political power looks up to many invisible forces which supply the authority needed but unbeknownst to the masses are actually the powers behind all political powers. This was the bone of contention between our Lord Jesus Christ and the Religious Establishment in His earthly ministry. The Pharisees heckled Him thus: "By what authority are You doing these things?" they asked. 'And who gave You the authority to do them" (Mark 11:28). You see, the Pharisees and Sadducees weren't disturbed by the miracles of our Lord Jesus Christ, but the authority they as religious leaders possessed in their rabbinical schools which our Lord Jesus Christ didn't attend incensed them and were determined to stop His Ministry, albeit hey failed miserably!
The politicians we see on television and hear their voices on radio and sundry megaphones are not the real people ruling the masses. There are invisible powerful forces ruling the people ruling the masses. Satan is behind many of the political leaders ruling various nations around the world; from the White House, Downing Street, Elysee Palace, Aso Rock to Novo-Ogaryovo, etc. Read the biographies and life histories or documentaries of virtually all the political dictators in history and you will find the intersection between political power and supernatural power. The day Ferdinand Marcos was driven out of Malacañang Palace, Manilla by irate Filipinos led by Corazon Aquino, he and Imelda were consulting the Ouija Board. Late Zairean dictator, Mobutu Seseko Kukungbendu Wazabanga bewitched his country men and women for nearly four decades in erstwhile Zaire through the powers of marabouts imported from The Gambia, Mauritania, Egypt, and Morocco. The satanic powers were the ones that commanded him to rename the country Zaire, the Congo River Zaire River, the nation's currency Zaire. Unlike Nkrumah who fed his lions with the flesh of his political opponents, the demons that sustained Mobutu in power told him to drop off the bodies of his political enemies into the Congo River by helicopters without trace and this must be done regularly. Gnassingbe Eyadema of Togo impoverished the tiny nation for nearly half a century by using voodoo power, Papa Doc Duvalier of Haiti in the Caribbean killed scores in the Western Hemisphere during his 15-year dictatorship through voodoo, necromancy, and African magic. Idi Amin employed African magic of his Kakwa tribe during his brutal rein in Uganda. Sani Abacha relied heavily on marabout during his 5-year misrule in Nigeria; many from The Gambia, Morocco, Mauritania, and far-flung places kept in the underground tunnel of Aso Rock, Abuja who never saw the sun. They were the ones instructing the cretin what to do, who to kill, murder and eliminate so he could transmute from military to civilian president. The list is endless. In my co-authored best seller, The Kingdom of Satan Exposed
, we delved deeper into the casualty between political and supernatural powers.

Spiritual Power: - The last and most potent form of power which the True Lord God Almighty uses is Spiritual Power. Many people confuse Supernatural Power with Spiritual Power, but this is erroneous. In between the natural material realm of our world where all human beings are, and the invisible immaterial world is a supernatural realm inhabited by Satan and his fallen angels. The True Lord God Almighty does not dwell in this realm. This is the immaterial world where witches, wizards, and all the dictators I mentioned above operate. It is the world which Satan offered our Lord Jesus Christ when Satan said: "Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me" (Matthew 4:8 & 9). The six realms of power listed above represent departments that are controlled by Satan who has menageries of agents called principalities and the principalities in turn have cavalcade of agents called demons, numerous of them indeed that inhabit human beings to do the biddings of Satan. In other words, the organogram of Satan is far-flung and overreaching and woe betides anyone who discounts this reality. That is why Satan is referred to as "the god of this world" (2 Corinthians 4:44; our Lord Jesus Christ referred to Satan as the prince of this world (John 12:31).
In each power department is a principality; if you want physical power like a boxer, wrestler etc, if you satisfy the requirements of the principality here, he will send some demons into your body for that purpose and when you die, you belong to him. His name in the supernatural realm is Paul Bugger. If you want to be a woman celebrity and want to acquire feminine power and its privileges, there is a principality that is in charge and the Holy Bible gave us her name: Jezebel. Here are her descriptions according to the Words of Life: "One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters. With her the kings of the earth committed adultery, and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries." Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones, and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. The name written on her forehead was a mystery: BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God's holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus…." (Revelation 17:1-90. Read about her till Revelation 18. This principality lives inside water and is so powerful among women that the Holy Bible devoted two chapters of the Book of Revelation to her. Her power is so pervasive that Satan created a separate department for her in the Oceans. She doesn't go to Satan, rather Satan goes to her. When a spiritually powerful man of God is shaking and disturbing the kingdom of Satan in spiritual warfare, this principality is sent as head of Rapid Response Leader. She has gazillions of agents working for her, from mermaids, street prostitutes, homosexuals, lesbians, fashionistas, hairstylists, the beauty pageants, to music stars, movie moguls, the television, entertainment, beauty products, etc. These are the people ruling the world and Satan specifies his requirements and those who want money, fame, celebrity etc flock in their millions and billions to enjoy these temporary earthly powers. The muses control the department of Intellectual Power while Mammon controls the department of Money hence the warning of the King of kings: "No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money" (Matthew 6: 24; See also Luke 16:13).
All these realms of power have innumerable demons that inhabit humans to empower them to be able to exercise those powers they want from Satan. The most potent and powerful power realm is the Spiritual Power which is wielded by the Almighty God, and He also specifies requirements that must be met before such power can be granted. This is where our Lord Jesus Christ exercises His untrammeled and sovereign power over all other powers. The requirements here are hard; it requires first and foremost to acknowledge the Only Giver of that Power; Jesus Christ as Lord, Master, and Savior. He doesn't guarantee easy life here, because the road to the gate to this power is narrow, there are few people trudging it, the road is hard, because there are stringent conditions, and it is not popular (Matthew 7:13-14). Here, there are only three guarantees: food, clothing and shelter, period (Matthew 6:25-32). To exercise this most powerful power, you cannot be selfish, but you use it to help others; the sick, poor, orphans, the elderly, handicapped, and the most vulnerable members in our midst. Unlike the other powers where the powerful marches on the powerless, the strong oppresses the weak and it is dog eats dog power display; here in this realm of power, we operate in love, and we carry each other's burden (Galatians 6:12). In this spiritual power realm, we defer to our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ Who is the Over all Boss and we take instructions from Him Only and Him as the Great Alone, Hallelujah! We don't struggle among ourselves, and we hold no monopoly of any knowledge for as Apostle Paul, one of our early wielders of this potent power pointed out: "…We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. No, we declare God's wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. However, as it is written: "What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived" the things God has prepared for those who love him- these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person's thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, for, "Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?"[ But we have the mind of Christ." (I Corinthians 2:7-16).
This spiritual power is not temporary unlike the six aforementioned power realms, it is eternal, and it will be exercised fully in the Street of Time. TO BE CONCLUDED NEXT WEEK
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.
