"Then he said to me, "Write, 'Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.'" And he said to me, "These are true words of God." Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, "Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy"---Revelation 19: 9-10
ne of the most discernible and practical signs that a genuine man or woman of the True Lord God Almighty speaks at His unction is the uncanny ability to foresee future events. In the Hoy Bible, the Sovereign Lord God Almighty revealed future events to His chosen ones so that they can know that only He and Him as the Creator of the heavens and the earth know what is yet to come. Don't get me wrong; Satan and his fallen minions and their human hirelings can also predict the future to a lesser extent, but predictions from them are mere guesses. The Only One who can predict the future with inexactitude is the Holy One, Hallelujah! Even as fallen creatures and rebellious beings, Satan and his demons had been with the Lord God Almighty in the heavens before they were driven away (Revelation 12 7-12) and fell unto the earth, yet the power to know the modus operandi of heavenly kingdom has not been taken away from them. These limited powers are used by these rebellious, fallen and depraved spirits to lure witchcraft practitioners and false teachers into their demonical stranglehold. When our Lord Jesus Christ came unto the earth as the Lord God Almighty in the flesh and paid the supreme sacrifice with His blood to liberate us from the stranglehold of Satan and his foul creatures, He-Jesus-restored back to us-those of us who believe in Him-the power to know the future as He chooses to reveal those events and circumstances to us. He promised as much in John 16: 13: "But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come."
In the Old Testament, each time the Sovereign Lord allowed the Holy Spirit to come upon anyone He wanted, the first sign of His Presence was ability to prophesy. We saw this at a corporate level in the Book of Exodus when the Sanhedrin was inaugurated and 70 elders of the congregation were anointed by God to assist Moses in Judeo jurisprudence affairs and administration. Even the two men from two tribes that were not physically present during the inauguration and swearing in ceremony still prophesied in their tents as a sign of the Presence of the Holy Spirit. A lot of Christians and non-Christians have confused fortune telling with prophecy. Fortune telling is the ability of Satan and their demons to use their human agents to manipulate certain situations and circumstances in the affairs of human to achieve desirable results. For example, a person goes to a herbalist or witch/wizard or fortune teller to consult fallen spiritual amanuenses and the person is instructed to carry out some strict regimens and the person adheres to those prescription rigidly without knowing or a iota of understanding f the process involved. Then suddenly, the person's requests are granted or what was foretold by the human augurs was fulfilled.
How are demons and their human agents able to pull these spiritual feats? Simple; once a person loses or gives out his/her will to another person and agrees to forfeits such willpower, what is decreed or foretold will occur according to spiritual laws. On the other hand, prophecy is conveying to the rest of human beings messages passed down from the tabernacle of His Highest to God's true servants on earth. As the True Lord God Almighty said in Amos 3: 7: "Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets," and one of the ways through which the Sovereign Lord does this revelation is through prophecy. In fact, prophecy is a gift of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12: 10b). Unlike fortune telling which requires artificial manipulation of events, situations, circumstances, people, places and things by Satan and his demons working in concert with rebellious human beings to achieve pre-determined and stated objectives and selfish goals, prophecy on the other hand, is from the Lord God Almighty which requires non-conformity with earthly situations and circumstances.
As Apostle Peter pointed out in 2 Peter 1: 20-21: "But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God." Consequently, we have demonstrated this prophetic gift of the True Lord God Almighty numerously in this column to the Glory of His Highest. The latest was when the Holy Spirit of God revealed to us at the beginning of this year 2015 that the Ooni of Ile-Ife,Oba Okunade Sijuwade Olubuse II would not survive this year. Here were our exact words in this column on January 04, 2015 when we released our prophecies and predictions for this year 2015.
"We warned that special prayers should be entered into in 2014 on behalf of the life of Emir Alhaji Ado Bayero of Kano so he could survive the year 2014. The revered king passed on last year as we warned. We are warning again this year 2015 that serious prayers should be entered into on behalf of the Ooni of Ife, the Alafin of Oyo and the Obi of Onitsha so they can survive the year 2015. There is a Nigerian lady called Cossy Orjiakor, who is always showing her breasts all over the social media. She should pray seriously against breast cancer this year 2015. A popular veteran journalist and also a popular musician will leave us this year 2015. A woman broadcaster will pass away this year in Nigeria. Other predictions about Nigeria will appear in our Expanded Prophecies and Predictions for the World in 2015 which will be published in this column next week. Happy New Year." https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/010415.html.
We don't normally get it right all the time, like the British general elections but in 99 percent of the cases, the Holy Spirit talks through us. I have given reasons in this column in the past why we don't normally get it right 100 percent to the Glory of the One who called us, Hallelujah!
*The Lord God Almighty revealed the death of Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade to us on January 4, 2015 and we reported it in this column. Read the prophecy here in this link: https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/010415.html
The other kings that we mentioned in this prophecy and also the rest personalities similarly telegraphed should be careful and enlist the prayers of men and women of God to avert what the Holy Spirit revealed to us at the beginning of this year. When we reveal to us something untoward about somebody like death for instance, that doesn't mean the person's fate is sealed. It can be reversed and many times, this had happened in the Holy Bible. That is why we always tell people to pray.
NEXT WEEK: We shall reveal the successor to the demised Okunade Sijuwade and the next Ooni of Ife and how his reign will turn out. Watch out.
