THE CHRISTIAN WALK

Cameron, Texas, USA
ho are you? That is a question many consider an affront and an insult on their status in our world of self-aplomb and self-pride today. To status conscious folks, asking such a question is even considered infra dig. But it is a question worth asking each of us on this temporary realm. The True Lord God Almighty was asked same question numerous times and the Maker took it all in its strides and volunteered Who He Was/Is. "Moses said to God, "Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' Then what shall I tell them?"(Exodus 3:13). Moses was invariably asking the Creator of the heavens and the universe: Who are you? The Sovereign Lord knows our spiritual limitations and know this question will continue to agitate the minds of lesser mortals for eons, so He didn't take umbrage but answered Moses off-pat: "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.'" (Exodus 3:14). Like a cowed Tiger, many humans would begin to thump chest and fuming by reeling out their earthly self-accolades and accomplishments when asked: Who are you? My Lord God Almighty would have pointed to the starry hosts, the amphibian world and vast oceans on earth, the beauty of the eco-system and the variegated solar system to prove His Existence. He didn't but introduced Himself personally to Moses, because He had a special assignment for the Great Deliverer. This is nadir of humility in its totality!
The same question that Moses asked the Lord was posed by Pharaoh too when the Great Deliverer confronted the Great Tormenter. "Pharaoh said, "Who is the LORD, that I should obey him and let Israel go? I do not know the LORD and I will not let Israel go" (Exodus 5:2). In this encounter, Pharaoh was saying the truth. You see, no human being can ever know the True Lord unless the True Lord God Almighty makes Himself known to us. Brother Saul was breathing murderous rage against what eventually became the church. He earnestly believed he was doing the True Lord God Almighty a favor by getting rid of those he considered as heretics who were followers of The Way-our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Armed with a ukase, he went after them; but like Moses asked when confronted with the True Lord God Almighty, Saul who later became Apostle Paul asked in same manner: "He -Saul-fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?" Who are you, Lord?" Saul asked." (Acts 9:4-5). The Lord God Almighty that appeared to Moses in the Burning Bush in the Land of Midian was the Same Lord that Saul was asking here: Who are you? Again, in consonant with His Immutable Character; He answered Saul as He answered Moses: "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting," he replied (Acts 9:5b).
We all have our concept of how and who the Lord God Almighty is and how he should look like. In the human spirit is a place or part called communion or worship next to intuition and conscience which are the three constituent parts of the human spirit. The conscience is sub-divided into three namely: guilty, clear, and seared consciences (Gen. 42:21, I Corinthians 4:4, & I Timothy 4:2). Inside the intuitive part of the human spirit is where the True Lord God Almighty speaks to us as human beings. The communion part is where we worship Him. He has placed this void in every human spirit that no matter how we try to rebuff Him, we must worship something; even atheism itself is a worship of an inexistent being. This is what distinguishes humans from all other creations of God. Satan and his demons have been experimenting with the human race for eons after the fall of our First Parents; Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and discovered they cannot remove this communion part of the human spirit. Consequently, they have sneaked unto the human race to tell them that; the Sovereign Lord God Almighty is so Awesome, Powerful and Unapproachable and thus they-Satan and his demons-are His intermediaries on earth and so obeisance and worship of them are the same as worshipping the True Lord God Almighty. Because the human race has erroneously believed, or taught or convinced themselves that the True Lord God Almighty will speak to them, they accepted the lies of Satan and his demons. This is the genesis of all pagan worship and all religions of the world. Even among redeemed and regenerated born-again Christians today, most wait to hear the True Lord God Almighty to talk to them in their minds. They have forgotten or unaware or ignorant of how the True Lord God Almighty speaks to us; He doesn't speak to the human mind. The mind is part of the 7 areas of the human soul and because we have defined the Lord God Almighty in our human terms, we expect Him to talk to us in our mind, but as He disclosed in John 4:24: "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." As we explained in our book; "The Kingdom of Satan Exposed," https://books.google.com/books?id=rCTgrQEACAAJ&sitesec=buy&source=gbs_buy_r the True Lord God Almighty of the Holy Bible does not talk to human beings through the human mind. I have disclosed this before and I will say it again for its relevance; the first time I heard His Voice, I was like Moses and Saul too in their experiential encounters with the King.
It was on Friday February 21, 1997 and I will and can never forget that first spiritual encounter with the King of kings and Lord of lords in my life, as if it were yesterday. It was inside the dingy and cavernous enclosure of the Gulag at the DMI Apapa, Lagos Nigeria during the hellish years of the Madman of Nigeria; late Gen Sani Abacha. I heard that Voice call my name three times (I Samuel 3:1-8). I was not sleeping, because it was not at night; I wasn't hallucinating, neither was it a dream nor a vision; I heard the Voice of the King of kings and Lord of lords. Usually, when He calls you, your reaction is normally human and this is what we say: "Who are you?" Unlike fellow mortals like us who will take umbrage or go about reeling out their titles, the Sovereign Lord God Almighty is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8), Hallelujah! "I am Jesus Christ, Your Creator, I have brought you here to use you. A Bible will be given to you." That was all I heard in that epochal First Encounter! Praise the Lord. Of course, He has spoken and still speaks to me since then, but this we should know; the True Lord God Almighty has a NAME just as He told Moses.
A sister came to me in spiritual quandary as to whether it was the King of kings and Lord of lords that spoke to her and she asked us to help her out. "Dr, I don't know whether it was the Voice of our Lord Jesus Christ I heard or not, how can I know His True Voice?" I told her it is very simple; Did He introduce Himself? She was taken aback! Ask Him: Who are you? He will not be offended, because He commanded us Himself in His Words thus: "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world." (I John 4:1). Satan and his demons can and do mimic the True Lord God Almighty and we have been given heads up on how to burst them. No demon will ever introduce himself to you as the Lord Jesus Christ; Satan will tear him to pieces and send him to hell instantly. Masquerading demons keep their mouths shut and do not mention that sacred Name of Jesus Christ, because, "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:9-11). Demons can perform miracles to wow the ignorant and unwary, pull certain supernatural feats such as healing certain diseases and titillate those whose sole objective is to be entertained and beguiled, but the Lord God Almighty reveals Himself only to those who want to have intimate and personal relationship with Him just as He disclosed: "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13).
I was taken aback by the Lord's statement. Why should we need to seek, search and earnestly desire to find You, O Lord when You can easily make yourself known and obvious to us all? When You make yourself obvious to us all, we can all line up and worship You rather than waiting and asking; Can the True Lord God Almighty please stand up? He smiled and looked at me and directed me to His Words: "…since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 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 1:19-20). Thus, the True Lord God Almighty doesn't need to prove His existence; His Creation is enough to prove His Existence, including you and me, period! Consequently, what He needs is personal revelation, which each and every one of us must desire. This is where Christianity differs from all human -made religions; there is a difference between me finding my way back to the Omnipotence and an Omniscient God with my finite mind and little brain, compared to the Omnipresent Lord God Almighty revealing Himself to me. How can the creation figure out the Creator? It's impossible! For the 50 years that my late father; Ademola Olumiyiwa Fayemiwo lived on this planet earth, I could count the number of times I knew and saw him. Of course, he was my father; he gave birth to me, but I hardly knew him. Why didn't I know him before he died? Simple; we had no relationship. It is possible to be related to someone, even lived with him or her for years and yet do not quite know him or her. The apostles were with our Lord Jesus Christ for three years, they ate with him and went with Him everywhere the Lord took them, but they didn't know Him. One day the King of kings and God in the flesh was explaining to the disciples His pre-Adamic Creation, the Creator Who came here for thirty-three years to share our humanity in order to save us from Satan was teaching the disciples and one of them announced their ignorance thus: "Philip said, "Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us."(John 14:8). The King couldn't believe it that this bunch of kids still couldn't get it! So He explained: "Jesus replied, "Philip, I have been with you all this time, and still you do not know Me? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'?…(John 14:9). Here are the 7 pointers, posers and questions necessary to know the True Lord God Almighty in any spiritual encounter: What is your name? The Lord God Almighty has a personal Name which He said He must be called and addressed: "God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.'…This is My name forever, and this is how I am to be remembered in every generation.…" (Exodus 3:14-15). When He came to us physically in human flesh to sojourn with us for 33years so He could bail us out of the spiritual prison of Satan as a result of the sin of our First Parents; Adam and Eve via His shed blood, He didn't deny Himself but announced His Name again to the Jews as He did to Moses thus: "Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day. He saw it and was glad." So the Jews said to him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?" Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM. "(John 8:56-58). Praise the Lord!
If you have any spiritual encounter with any entity, tangible or immaterial, corporeal or not; whichever the form of the entity, if he/she cannot tell you He is the Jesus Christ born of the Virgin Mary, then it is a demon masquerading as agent of light. This is why I question and will vehemently oppose the Apparition of the so-called Virgin Mary in Fatima Portugal as demonic. Those three Catholic Girls who said they were visited by the Virgin Mary and the Catholic Establishment blessed the spiritual encounter and turned the place into a religious pilgrimage undoubtedly had a demonic encounter. No born-again Christian, redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb should worship the Virgin Mary. She didn't die for us; she herself confessed in The Magnificat "My soul
magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;…" (Luke 1:47-48). The Virgin Mary, like the rest children of Adam and Eve was not divine; she was part of the fallen human race, albeit a virgin just like the many numerous young and chaste women in Israel of her day. Nothing, absolutely nothing stood her apart and different from the rest virgins and this fact she herself disclosed thus: "…for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant"-referring to herself. No organization or body must venerate and worship the Virgin Mary, but our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Who died for us on the Cross of Calvary, period!
The third litmus test to apply to any spiritual encounter in order to know the Real from the Counterfeit is to ask the entity; whether Jesus Christ lived a sinless life or not. No prisoner can and will be allowed to bail out a fellow prison inmate. No human being can redeem the life of a fellow human being with his or her own soul and since all of us were prisoners of Satan through the fall of our First Parents in the Garden of Eden, it took the Lord God Almighty Father Himself to come to this earth physically to free us from the bondage of Satan. Jesus Christ Who is God in the flesh came to this realm to become sin for us for; "God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God" (2 Corinthians 5:27). As Apostle Peter too disclosed: "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth." ( I Peter 2:22). The Lord Jesus Christ Who I took as my Savior and Lord and appeared to me for the first time in 1997 and continues to talk to me is the Lord God Almighty Himself, period! I didn't read that; He spoke to me personally and so, if you write any letter or email to me concerning this issue; so we can be arguing over it, you are wasting your time, I will not read it and I will not reply you, so forget it!
So, I saw my name written in plain red like blood in 1997 as Jesus Christ spoke to me. It was on a white sheet of paper inside a file with the name; Moshood! Nothing else. I asked the Lord; "Why was my name written in red? That is a failing grade among human beings. The Lord Jesus Christ replied: "That color is my blood which I shed for you and the whole world on Calvary! Consequently, the fifth litmus test you should ask the spiritual entity in any encounter is; "Did the Lord Jesus Christ die on the Cross or not? "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already." (I John 4:1-4). The Sacrificial Death of our Lord Jesus Christ on the Cross by Crucifixion is the grundnorm of the Christian faith. No matter what is said about the 33years that the King sojourned with us physically on this earth; His many miracles and supernatural powers; the healings and raising of the dead and the rest; His main objectives was to die in our stead and swallow death for us once and for all. He accomplished that objective on the Cross, Hallelujah! You deny this spiritual fact, you deny the Messiah, period!
The sixth is His Resurrection from the dead. Not only did my Lord and Savior die for me to save me and the rest of the human race from the clutches of Satan and his fiendish hordes, He also came back to life after three days with Power, Authority and Dominion all over all forces, Hallelujah! "He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe." (Ephesians 4:10). Any spiritual entity that doesn't vouchsafe this is a demon or demonic agent, period!
Finally, my Lord Jesus Christ is coming back. Whether the world likes it or not, He is coming back first; to take us home, and then; to judge the world. It doesn't matter whether the world likes it or not, but the King is coming. "Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End." (Rev. 22:12-13). Praise the Lord, the King is Coming. Are you ready? NEXT WEEK, WE WILL EXPLAIN HOW TO DISCOVER YOUR SPIRUTUAL DNA.
ALHAJI ADEGBOYEGA ISIAKA OYETOLA IS THE NEXT GOV OF STATE OF OSUN
One of the gains and benefits of participatory democratic values is the power of the citizens to determine their destinies and future regularly in the choice of elected representatives. In all democratic and well-functioning societies, term limits are enacted for leaders, so that bad leaders can be removed and even good ones can be rewarded, but will not be allowed to turn into dictators and autocrats. Here in the United States, various measures were put in place to kybosh the emergence of dictators. At the federal level, no matter how superlative your performance as president, you can only govern this beautiful land for four years twice of total eight years and butt out. The founding fathers were about to make exception to Mr. George Washington, our first president. He refused and resisted the pressure by leaving office on March 04, 1797. While in office, different forms of titles were suggested for him, again he refused but preferred to be addressed simply as Mr. President. The same when he left office and today, that enviable and humble tradition has been maintained; except during WWII when President FD Roosevelt was president for 12 years. All our presidents, 45 of them; for 329 years are simply addressed as Mr. Even Woodrow Wilson who was a university professor dropped the title and chose to be called and addressed as Mr.
*Alhaji Adegboyega Isiaka Oyetola, a worthy alumnus of the University of Lagos is the next governor, State of Osun on Saturday September 22, 2018 in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.
But in certain states in America, there are no term limits. For examples, you can serve as the Mayor of Washington District of Columbia as long as you want so far you have the confidence of the electorate and can serve in perpetuity. The same applies to the governorship of the Island of Puerto Rico. The State of Utah recently abolished term limits for governors and you can serve in perpetuity as well, while many states allow you to serve for 16 years. When delegates to the Continental Congress were deliberating on term limits in Philadelphia in 1787, Rufus King, the delegate from Massachusetts told his colleagues: "… he who has proved himself to be most fit for an Office, ought not to be excluded by the constitution from holding it." Although his motion was defeated, King had a point. My former City of Chicago once bowed to the power and supremacy of one family to occupy the powerful office of Mayor for decades in America's third largest city. For 57 years, (1955-2012) the Daleys thoroughly dominated the political life of the Great City of Chicago and recycled themselves periodically as Mayor; from Richard, William, Richard Jnr to . John, even their wives etc. Chicagoans weren't stupid; the Daleys performed. When Richard was leaving in 2012, he signed a contract with a Canadian firm lasting 150 years; another one lasted for 100 years and the Chicago City Council approved the contracts, because they would save the city millions of tax payer's money. Similarly, when President Obama was about to leave office, he signed executive orders to protect the environment, help young college graduates ease the burden of students loans and many others beyond his administration of eight years all for public good. This is why Mr. Iyiola Omisore, the governorship candidate of the SDP for the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the State of Osun should be ashamed of himself for that useless press briefing and atrocious press release he pushed out last week or thereabout accusing the outgoing Aregbesola Administration of mortgaging the future of the state.
The whole idea of continuity and ensuring a man of ideas takes over power from Aregbesola is to make sure that the pace of progress jumpstarted by Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola in the State of Osun would not be reversed. Whether one likes it or not, Ogbeni is the gold standard in Osun politics, period! In a nation where altruism and honesty in public service are in vanishing supply, Ogbeni has demonstrated in Osun that, given the little resources available, government can work for the people. Unless you are a thief and a blind person, to deny Ogbeni's achievements in 8 years is madness. All those projects that Omisore gleefully announced as white elephant projects would triple in costs in the next decade. Governments all over the world are a continuum; good and worthwhile projects will be eaten off by inflation and escalated costs of materials and sensible governments always put in place agreements, covenants and memorandum of understanding to ensure that vital areas that will make life comfortable for the masses will be delivered to the people at fraction of their costs to save money. Omisore is a political nonentity and should have known how government operates as a former deputy governor, and a senator rather than exploiting those people-oriented programs he listed in his useless press release for political propaganda. Iyiola Omisore will never govern the State of Osun, ever in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen!
My involvement with the Aregbesola Administration is both personal and divine. Those who say Aregbesola is a toady of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Alhaji Adegboyegan Isiaka Oyetade is Asiwaju's cousin are missing the point. Many of these political jobbers and gossips were political nobodies yesteryears but propped up from their bootstraps via Asiwaju's generosity. Any state in Nigeria that I am personally involved is divine assignment and mudslingers should butt out. We were involved in Ondo and Ekiti and we saw the outcomes of those elections and because we are keenly and uniquely involved in Osun 2018, come September 22, 2018, Alhaji Gboyegan Isiaka Oyetade will step into the proud shoes of Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola as the 5th democratically-elected governor of the State of Osun in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen for as the True Lord God Almighty told me;" Moshood, "I will do the very thing you have asked, because I am pleased with you and I know you by name." (Exodus 33:17).
I have never, ever lost any political election in my life, beginning from student election, even while in my secondary school days. This is the truth. When I arrived at the University of Lagos in the 1980s, I told one of the political candidates contemplating the students' union presidency that, I would support him and he would win. He thought it was a joke. Many on campus didn't even take him seriously, but he won that election to the bemusement of all. I won my own election as students' union president in a landslide. We give thanks to the True Lord God Almighty for this great gift and favor; from Burkina Faso, Ghana, to The Gambia and Nigeria; from Ondo, Ekiti, Kogi and many more. There is one salient spiritual secret to political power which politicians and most people of the world do not understand; it is contained in this scriptural peg in the Word of Life: "So he said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty." (Zechariah 4:6).
*The sickness that compelled Mrs. Unoma Ekaette Akpabio to go under the knife few years ago and which made her and her family to seek the Face of the Lord will return in 2019 according to my prophecy. Whether she will return to the German Hospital or seek medical attention elsewhere is up to them, but the Akpabis will be MIA-Missing in Action-during the 2019 Election Cycle so they can know that the " 'The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of people.' (Daniel 4:17).
A professor friend of ours was visiting The Jesus Christ Solution Center here in beautiful Cameron over the weekend and naturally, we began to talk about Nigeria. He showed me the large crowds and throngs of heads and supporters welcoming a political leader on social media and I looked at him and said: "Those crowds meant nothing to the Almighty God when one faithful and chosen Man or Woman of God is involved, because according to His Unchanging Words: "I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one" (Ezekiel 22:30).
As the APC and the so-called political juggernauts gathered the other day in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state to celebrate the defection of Sen. Godswill Akpabio from the PDP to the APC with his wife, Ekaette Unoma Akpabio by his side, I shook my head, if only they knew what is in the offing and Macbeth by William Shakespaere which I read for my WASC in the 1970s came to my mind: "Life is nothing more than an illusion. It's like a poor actor who struts and worries for his hour on the stage and then is never heard from again. Life is a story told by an idiot; full of noise and emotional disturbance but devoid of meaning" (Act 5, Scene 5). Then Akpabio went to Abia and declared a spiritual war and invoked the putrefying ghost of Hitler; an Anti-Christ and the Lord God Almighty said I should tell Akpabio this: "Therefore this is what the LORD says concerning the king of Assyria:"He will not enter this city or shoot an arrow here. He will not come before it with shield or build a siege ramp against it. By the way that he came he will return; he will not enter this city," "I will defend this city and save it, for my sake and for the sake of David my servant!" (Isaiah 37:33-35).
I have entreated the Lord God Almighty; and so what happened to Sennacherib will not happen to the Akpabios in spite of their churlishness. Here is the sign we referred to last week to humble the Akpabios: as the 2019 governorship election is about to take place, Mrs. Unoma Ekaette Akpabio will fall sick; the same sickness that caused her to be rushed to the hospital the other time will return and so, while her life is hanging in the air, her husband; Sen. Godswill Obot Akpabio will not have the time and energy to campaign in 2019 but will have to be by the bedside of her wife; either in Germany or whichever hospital; local or abroad; that she will be rushed to as my prophecy declares.
