If you haven't confessed your sins and iniquities, humbled your heart with contrition, and are obediently a born-again Christian of our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ, do not use this template. It is not enough to say you're a Christian, you must have the Holy Spirit as evidence and anyone who does not have the Holy Spirit does not belong to Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9). Our Lord, Master and Savior said; "Truly, truly, I tell you; Unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God" (John 03,03). Consequently, this apologia is for the truly redeemed, genuinely saved and not a churchgoer bearing a Christian but doesn't have an intimate relationship with the Jesus Christ of the Christian. Our apologia for refusing to take the vaccine against COVID-19 is anchored on the Words of our Lord Jesus Christ as contained in the Holy Bible, the Book of Truth pointed out: "Your Word O Lord is Truth" (John 17:17).
I wrote these in this column last year at the inspiration of the Holy Spirit thus: "…Third; international travel will be regulated as airlines will be standardized not by national governments, but by this global central government. In other words, airworthiness will be globally regulated, and airlines will be issued clearance and airworthiness to fly sans national air space. Fourth, air pilots will be trained globally instead of nationally as it is now, and pilots will be certified and cleared to fly globally by one central global body that will be set up by the global government. Each pilot will be issued an identification number without which no air pilot will fly any private and commercial flights on earth. Fifth, parents will not be able to enroll their children and wards in any educational institution whether private or public without presenting a unique number issued by the global government for such exercise. This will be implemented from pre-K to the university level and in all educational institutions on earth…" It was part of the eschatological events telegraphed to us believers as part of the mephitic events heralding the arrival of the Anti-Christ. The much-dreaded 666 foretold in Revelation 13 is knocking and around the corner.
On Sunday April 26, 2020, the column reminded the people of the world to this prophecy playing right now before our eyes. Here is the link as published here over a year ago: (https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/042620.html). Because our column articles are syndicated around the world, the news went viral as usual. Tweaked and titled Unholy Satanic Trinity And The Number 6+6+6 In Pretribulation Era (Part 5) (modernghana.com) on April 28, 2020, the Accra-based Ghana news portal, Modern Ghana syndicated the article also. Here is the link: (https://www.modernghana.com/news/998220/unholy-satanic-trinity-and-the-number-666-in.html). Similarly, on April 27, 2020, the Abuja-based Nigeria news publication; News Chronicles re- published the same article with same caption. Here is the link: https://www.thenews-chronicle.com/author/moshood12/). There are other news publications, both traditional and modern that re-published this end time event. Here were the words of the Lord from His Book, the Holy Bible: "…Of Issachar, men who understood the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen under their command…" (I Chronicles 12:32). Do you understand the signs of the times we are in as Christ believers and followers? Are you denying what the Lord God Almighty had already telegraphed ahead of time for us who are His Own? Do you get it? As your children are being harangued to comply with certain health requirements before they can be admitted into schools, do you know what to do? Are you bombarded with false accusations and called all sorts of unprintable names for knowing the signs of the times? Is your job on the line right now because you have the guts to stand your spiritual ground? These are some of the spiritual steps you can take as revealed by the Holy Spirit.
First, pray, continue to pray, and let prayer become your life from now onward. I mean it, folks! If you are the lukewarm type, you need to snap out of it from now until you either go home-they call it death among human beings-or our Lord Jesus Christ come for us. Either way, let us pray, constantly and continuously, redouble our efforts in prayer to the Lord of lords and King of kings; lets continuous prayer become your life from now onward. Join hands with other folks, even on cyberspace to bond and pray together. The third action as a daily routine is fasting. This is not the time to slack, sleep and doze off. Time is running out for Satan and his demons and in this last stretch, they are redoubling their malevolent events to reap as many souls as possible. Wake up, Christians! Wherever you are now, begin to tell others about this Jesus Christ and don't be intimidated. They must hear about Him. What they do about Him is up to them but discharge your spiritual duty so that the Good News will be proclaimed all over the world.
PRACTICAL STEPS FOR BORN-AGAIN BELIEVERS AND PARENTS
First, have reasons for your beliefs; in other words, why are you declining or resisting what you are being told or instructed to do? Some Christians are mere Christians in name, but they do not know the Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ, Who is the Christ in the Christian. The basis for what we so dearly believe is what theologians call apologia and in Bible Schools is called Apologetics. But you don't have to go that far to understand those big words, but simply read the words of Apostle Peter thus: "But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…" (I Peter 3:15). Apostle Paul padded those exhortation thus: "Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone" (Colossians 4:6). If they ask you to be vaccinated, your children must do same; otherwise, you will be fired or they will not be allowed in school and you are just shouting 666 without knowing Jesus Christ personally, you will suffer.
Second, you must be able to defend the period of your beliefs and stop talking about the Damascene Experience of Brother Saul who later became Paul while you have no Damascene Experience of your own. Do you just realize Jesus Christ is the Savior and you are meandering your spiritual journey in wilderness? You need to learn more and as Apostle Peter once again counseled: "Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble…" (2 Peter 1:10). If you are a self-proclaimed pastor and you haven't been truly and genuinely called by our Lord Jesus Christ into pastoral ministry, but because of unemployment and joblessness, you are heading and leading a church, you are going to be exposed in these end times. My Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ is about to purge His Body, the Church and all those wrinkles shall be washed-off. Many so-called Christians who are at ease on Mt. Zion will be exposed in these end times because He is not coming for a lukewarm church. As I disclosed in earlier column article referenced above, the days of playing church will soon be over. You are either in or out; spiritual autarky or splendid isolation in this spiritual warfare between God and Satan, Light and Darkness, Good and Evil are no more options. Many born-again Christians are going to lose their secular jobs, more discriminations are coming, you may find it difficult to blend and the rest. Brace up!
Third, you must know by now why Blood is sacred before the One you worship, and, on His Name, you don't want to be contaminated. As Hosea says: "My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6). If you don't know how the Adamic Bloodline was contaminated by Satan which led to the banishment of our First Parents from the Garden of Eden and the overall plan of the Lord God Almighty to institute a New Bloodline through our Lord Jesus Christ, then you need to start attending a Christ-focused, Word-based and Holy Spirit-led Assembly before you are thrown out of your job, denied promotion, or your children thrown out of school. Folks, it is this Old Bloodline versus New Bloodline that has been raging for millennia that is playing out right before our eyes on earth today. Spiritual nitwits have no clues why we reject this stuff. Hear the Master and Teacher in His Own Words: "Then He took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins" (Matthew 26:27-28). Similarly, Dr Luke alluded to this Blood Covenant: "In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you" (Luke 22:20). The Old Covenant-by the way, covenant is also the same word as testament in Hebrew-in the Old Testament midwifed by Moses was by the blood of an animal as recorded in Exodus 24:08: "So, Moses took the blood, sprinkled it on the people, and said, "This is the blood of the covenant that the LORD has made with you in accordance with all these words." That Old Testament Blood Covenant couldn't do the job, because; "It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins" (Hebrews 10:04). Animals weren't the ones that sinned in the Garden of Eden, but human beings-Adam and Eve, so why should the blood of bulls and goats be shed to pay for your sins and mine? Consequently, when our High Priest, my Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ came to this world physically as fully God and fully Man as propitiator for the sins of the human race, "…He did not enter by the blood of goats and calves, but He entered the Most Holy Place once for all by His own blood, thus securing eternal redemption" (Hebrews 9:12). Hallelujah! May my eyes not see evil! Satan is hellbent is contaminating this New Blood line but not inside me.
Take these three explanations and reasons for your faith, beliefs and stands to your workplace, children's schools, gyms, government offices, etc. and stand your ground.
OLABIYI DUROJAIYE (FEBRUARY 18, 1933-AUGUST 24, 2021) TRIBUTE TO A GREAT MAN OF FAITH AND ONE OF OUR OWN
Chief Olabiyi Durojaiye and I were detained together at the dreaded Directorate of Military Intelligence Facility, Apapa, Lagos Nigeria during the bestial reign of that misbegotten wraith in human skin known as Sani Abacha. I had been kidnapped from the neighboring Republic of Benin by the goons of the military cretin in the wee hours of February 14, 1997, at the height of the June 12, 1993, political logjam. I arrived and became the Underground Tunnel Man as my co-detainees described my ordeal and later on, Chief Olabiyi Durojaiye was brought including other high-flying detainees. Those were the dark days of the Nigerian nation, and we pray that we shall not experience such harrowing times in our nation.
While other detainees were herded together in an open hall by Col. Omenka and his men at the detention facility, notable and prominent detainees like us were scattered; Papa Durojaiye was kept incommunicado, I was completely quarantined inside the underground. Papa Durojaiye normally passed by my seraglio once a while when allowed to shower, and we would talk over the fence. What is being achieved today for His Utmost began at this University of the Holy Spirit, DMI Apapa Campus, Hallelujah! Pa Durojaiye was surprised when I told him that Sani Abacha would die suddenly and he and the rest of us would regain our freedom and I announced the death a year before it occurred. "Aburo, thank God that Abacha is now dead," Pa Durojaiye shouted across the fence in June 1998 after Abacha expired; "we shall now witness the Abiola Presidency." I told Pa Durojaiye that regrettably MKO Abiola would not become president and we should pray he didn't follow Abacha. I announced the prophecy on Sunday June 21, 1998, and MKO Abiola died on Tuesday July 07, 1998. Sani Abacha died on Monday June 08, 1998, and I had earlier announced the death of Sani Abacha a year earlier to all the congregation of the Christian Assembly at DMI, Apapa, Lagos on Sunday May 18, 1997. "Aburo, so all these our sufferings over June 12 struggles would be in vain?" he shouted when he heard my revelation about MKO Abiola. I explained that it would not be in vain but would take another thirty years to materialize as shown me by the Holy Spirit. That was one of the reasons I left Nigeria with my entire family after Sani Abacha died.
On a personal note, Pa Durojaiye was so concerned about the health of his aged mother and agonized that it would break his heart for his mother to die while he was in detention and so I took the matter to the Lord God Almighty. I told Pa Durojaiye that his aged mother would not die while he was in detention, and he too would live another twenty to twenty-eight years before he bade bye to us. As the Word of Life says, the Lord God Almighty "…who carries out the words of his servants and fulfills the counsel and purposes of his messengers…" (Isaiah 44:26). He regained his freedom in August 1998 and his aged mother was waiting for him as he addressed a press conference mentioning my name as the first voice he would hear early in the morning and the last to hear at night at DMI. He lived another 23 more years before he went the way of lesser mortals last month. In early 2003 while he was here in the United States, he called me up from Atlanta Georgia and we regaled ourselves with our hellish days at DMI, Apapa, Lagos. He was shocked that I left Nigeria with all that I put into the struggle, but when I informed him that I needed more education-I was in my first master's degree program at the University of South Florida, Tampa-he saw reason. "I also remember you said while we were in detention that it would take another thirty years for Nigeria to get it together," he reminded me, and we spoke at length about other things. A man of good character, bevy of candor and forthrightness and faith, he will be missed.
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.
