"Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil" ---(Ecclesiastes 12:13-14)
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment…" (Hebrews 9:27)
"The Father loves the Son and shows Him all He does. And to your amazement, He will show Him even greater works than these. For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom He wishes. Furthermore, the Father judges no one, but has assigned all judgment to the Son, so that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not come under judgment. Indeed, he has crossed over from death to life" --- (John 5:20-24)
e are all going, yes, all of us are going to the realm of eternity. Death is coming and speedily, furiously, or glacially for each and everybody of us, including this writer down the Street of Time. No one will escape it; it is inevitable. Consequently, it is not if you and me will die; rather, where are we heading to aftermath of Death? The way people are dying these days should be frightening to the uninsured by the Blood of Jesus Christ and the assurance of His Resurrection and by extension, the resurrection and afterlife of those of us who have invested our future and staked our eternity into His Secured Hands and Iron-Clad Promise as He told us: "Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done" (Revelation 22:12). If you do not have that confidence now that when Jesus Christ returns for His Own, I pity you1 Yet, it is not late, you can give your life to the Owner of Life Now! Tomorrow may be too late, and tomorrow is not even guaranteed. Death can come at any time, minutes, hours, unannounced, because as the Grim Reaper, it is the great teacher of us all, the stalker of the entire human race and the sneaker. This year alone and we haven't rounded it up, I have lost two cousins, and a great prayer partner and those who had shared my moments of joys and griefs.
Midyear, the sad news hit me like thunderbolt while in Nigeria that my second cousin, Brother Olatunji Olumide Olufemi Fagboyegun had left us for eternity. Sad and terrible! We all mourned his tragic passage. Then another said news hit me again upon return to the United States in July; my ardent admirer, prayer partner, sister in the Lord and one of the pioneer members of our Online Bible Classes at the Jesus Christ Solution Center, Texas; Rev (Dr) Caroline Adeolu Ojomo in Houston passed onto eternity. Tragic! Another cousin of mine who sent his condolences from Los Angeles California upon hearing the news of Brother Tunji's death was Pastor Aladebayo David Aladesuru. Here were his words: "Bros, we have lost Brother Tunji, So Sad!" I never knew those were the last words I would hear from Bayo. Pastor Aladesuru himself after Brother Tunji left us.
Sariyu Awodeyi(Mama Ronke) was my half-sister. I was there in 1966 when she came to the world. My attorney, Barrister Kunle Fadipe Esq was brutally murdered inside his living room in summer 2014 in north Lagos, Oluwafemi Emmanuel Fayemiwo, my second son was murdered -he did not commit suicide please- and my adorable second cousin, Brother Tunji "Taba" Fagboyegun who gave me a break in life died earlier this year. The seed money that I needed to establish Razor Magazine in 1992 was given to me by this kind-spirited soul. A very generous and highly passible person, Brother Tunji loved young and ambitious people driven by perseverance and knack for success.
After I left Daily Times Newspapers in 1991, I knew I wanted to establish my own publishing outfit. The first attempt didn't succeed, but I didn't give up. Then Brother Tunji sent for me, and we met at his countryside home in Owo. He requested for an estimate for me launching a newsmagazine having praised my earlier efforts and I obliged him. He made N500,000 (Five Hundred Thousand Naira) available as a take-off. Half a million Naira was a hefty sum way back then, and later cobbled other investors; late Prince Adeyanju Olateru-Olagbegi, pioneer chairman of defunct Owena Bank Plc (now part of Springbank Group) and Uncle Ajibola Ganiyu Ogunsiji, former member, Ogun State House of Assembly. Many Nigerians didn't know that Brother Tunji Fagboyegun supported our pro-democracy efforts through moral and financial backing during the June 12, 1993, political saga. He worked silently in the background. We discussed briefly after I regained my freedom in 1998 following Abacha's demise urging me to go to Ondo State and play politics, but I informed me about my encounter with my Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ and my intention to leave Nigeria for good. I called him up in Chicago about seven years ago and we discussed private matters and he promised to hook up in Abuja Nigeria as I told him I would be in Nigeria in 2014. I didn't know he had relocated to Minna, Niger State and there were other personal issues about the Fagboyegun Family that I wanted to clarify from him. We were always missing each; when I visited Nigeria, he would be in London and somehow, we couldn't hit up one-on-one before he left for eternity in London earlier this year.
I do not have any other prayer partner apart from Mrs. Ojomo. I remembered one night when we began one out of our numerous night vigil prayers at 12midnight over the phone and by the time we checked the time, it was 6am. We had prayed non-stop for six hours without realizing it but seemed like minutes. The denizens of darkness were askance and conspired to take her away from me and us at The Jesus Christ Solution Center, Texas, but as the Holy Spirit comforted me: "Vengeance is Mine, and recompense; Their foot shall slip in due time; For the day of their calamity is at hand, And the things to come hasten upon them" (Deuteronomy 32;35).
And I was there at Ilale-Idashin Owo, Ondo State in 1970 when you, Bayo, and your younger sister, Yetunde were brought by my late mother to live briefly with us after you lost your mother. When you called me earlier this year that you had cancer but had beaten it, I thought you had escaped. I still remember my last advise to you on February 18, 2021, when you sent a text to me via WhatsApp at 08"11pm thus: "…Egbon, Dr Moshood, pls remember me in prayers, I lost 3 family members within one month. This is scarry!" and I replied to you: "Yes!" that I would be praying for you. I did pray for you and later sent a note via the same WhatsApp to you on June 6,2021 at 4:33am: "My Dear Cousin, I will continue to pray for you that you will hear truly from the Holy Spirit and make your pastoral election sure. Any spiritual work we think we are doing for the Lord Jesus Christ out of desire but not initiated by the Holy Spirit has no eternal value. Please pray and pray again to make sure you were indeed and genuinely called by my Lord, Master, and Savior Jesus Christ to be a pastor. I am not saying this because of your call this morning about TB Joshua. The Holy Spirit has been nudging me to tell you before now. Read 2 Peter 1:10. I will continue to pray for you. Remain blessed in Jesus Mighty Name Amen." We didn't speak to each other again until I called you to send me Mr. Sikiru's phone number since he has refused to call me because he asked me for some favors that I declined. I never knew we would not talk again. Now it is all over for you have gone on a Journey of No Return.
These precious souls have left us to the Other Side. You and I are still here and our own time to exit shall come too. Do you know when you will depart this earth? What will your last words be? Do you know where you will spend eternity? Surely, you and I will inevitably die, because as we all know, we are all pilgrims and strangers on this earth. Do you know where you came from in the first place? I mean, you didn't just happen; you must have come from somewhere before you got to this world? Do you know why the Creator created you and sent you to this earthly realm in the first place? Have you discovered the reason for your existence or are just going with the flow? If you haven't discovered the raison d'etre of your existence and life, you're most to be pitied! If you have indeed discovered your reason for living, are you 100 percent sure or are just guessing? If you are definitely and assuredly sure you're indeed and truly working in the calling of your Creator for you, are you carrying it with total focus and unwavering commitment? Are you following the will of the True Lord God Almighty joyously or half-heartedly and reluctantly? As I often ask our brethren here at the E-Congregation Assembly Bible Classes, are you enjoying your Christian Walk or enduring it? Do you know where you will spend eternity? There are only two eternal houses: Heaven or Hell. The choice is yours!
WORLD EXCLUSIVE! AN UNMITIGATED GLOBAL CALAMITY IN THE OFFING
In this column on Monday May 4, 2020, the Holy Spirit showed us what was about to happen somewhere on earth which would shake the entire planet earth. See the link to the prophecies two years ago as published here and other syndicated platforms around the world: (https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/050420.html). This was at the height of the global pandemic known as COVID-19 now in rear mirror. This coming devastation will make Covid-19 a child's play. The latest on this global calamity that is warming up now which we are giving the world a head up was published in this column and other syndicated platforms on Monday March 14, 20222. See link:
*We saw the coming of the global pandemic known as Covid-19 nearly a decade before it broke out upon the world, and we broke it in this column in 2013. Another global event of great proportion is warming up now which the Lord Jesus Christ has shown us and only those who put their trust, belief, and faith in the Savior of the world will survive this impending calamity.
Do you remember nearly ten years ago before the Coronavirus Pandemic struck that the True Lord God Almighty showed us and we warned of its wrath in this column? Here were our exact words: WORLD PROPHECY: This is huge! Something of global importance, an earth-shattering event and a cosmic occurrence is in the offing in the world. I don't know what it is, but the Holy Bible has predicted it and we shall all see it with our very eyes soon. This event is part of end-time prophecy and it's about to take place very, very soon in the next 12 to 24 months. I don't know what it is; I repeat again, I wasn't shown what it is but again, it's HUGE. The whole world will be shocked; from the rising of the sun to the setting of the sun; from the East to the West; from the South to the North, the planet earth is about to witness a catastrophic event. The Divine Hand of God Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and the universe, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is about to intervene in the affairs of humanity. The world media, the commentariat, the scientists, the astrologers, the men and women of earthly wisdom and their ilk will be talking their heads out but will not be able to explain but those who know the True God will be unshaken and unperturbed. What is it? I wasn't shown but was only told (Luke 21:11 & 25). I have been repeating the above prophetic words almost a year since this column debuted and as events unfold around the world…" (Tuesday December 17, 2013: Here is the link once again to the worldwide prophecy: (https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/121713.html ).
The global calamity that is about to occur as shown us by the Lord God Almighty is in tandem with His Unchanging Words: "Remember what happened long ago, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, 'My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.'" (Isaiah 46:9-10) and "Surely the Lord GOD does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets" (Amos 3:7). Watch and pray!
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 protected] Congratulations and welcome to the family of the Living God!
