"BAD BOY, BAD BOY, WHAT YOU GONNA DO, WHAT YOU GONNA DO, WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU, BAD BOY, BAD BOY?

"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).

hen the unknown quartet of Ian Lewis, Roger Lewis, Steven Coore and Michael Cooper in rural Jamaica teamed up in 1968 to form the Inner Circle Musical Band and released their sprechgesang known as "One Way," two decades later, it was a flop. Just few copies were sold in the homeland. Determined to make an impact, the boys did an encore of the original song and added the "Bad Boys" as a separate track, and it shot up onto all the available music charts to global acclaim. From Finland, Norway, Sweden to Australia, the UK and finally the United States; the theme song as a solo hovered between one to number three position. In 1993, it sold more than half a million copies. Because our nation, the United States is still the barometer for measuring success in all spheres: education, music, entertainment, culture, technology etc. the song became the band's tour de force and in 1993 when the Fox TV adopted it as its theme song for the phenomenally successful Cops Show, the band struck gold and the theme song soon become franchised. Ian Lewis and co-singer Roger Lewis often described as co-siblings weren't biologically related, but only met at a bus stop in Kingston in the 60s and the result was the joint success both achieved. Every time their song is played anywhere in the world, they receive royalties for life!

But as could be gleaned from Fox Cop Program which has been on air for nearly forty years having undergone numerous tweaks but still phenomenally popular with viewers, there is a spiritual parallel to the Bad Boys in our streets and the actual Bad Boys considered by the Almighty God as His enemies. Bad Boys in Fox TV Cops range from drunk drivers being chased to keep the rest of us safe, the drug traffickers polluting the souls and spirits of their victims and enlarging the territories of fallen angels among the sons and daughters of humans to sex traffickers and other undesirables in major cities and towns around the world. If you saw what hard drugs such as cocaine, heroin, meths and other hallucinogenic substances are doing to young men and women of the world, starting from here in the United States to many countries around the world, you will weep and cry. I was in the Twin Cities of Minnesota in 2009 and I was moved to tears seeing human beings created in the Image and Likeness of God Almighty being oppressed and dehumanized by Satan and his demons. These were mostly white boys and girls with limitless opportunities in the greatest nation on earth sleeping in the streets, haggard looking, eyes blood-shot and begging for money from people. It is so sad! And you see such gory, pitiful, and heart-wrenching sights in many towns and cities around our nation. We call them the "Bad Boys" and much later, another episode from the iconic Fox TV Cops debuted with "Bad Girls." From the Windy City of Chicago where I lived for over a decade, Tampa, Florida where I berthed upon my relocation to the United States to New York and more than two dozen states, including the Lone Star where I now live, the menace of illegal, harmful, and killer drugs are plucking the lives of young Americans in their prime and it is sad and horrific. A Nigerian American family called for my help from Provo, Utah 12 years ago to help look for their first son who had mysteriously disappeared from home without trace. After intense prayers and nightly meditations and with the aid of modern technology, I was able to track down the young man, about 25 years old, in one of the foulest, slimiest, and unhabitable slum in the third largest and most cosmopolitan city in the nation. He was catatonically haggard and unrecognizable if not for the photograph the parents sent to me to track him down. It was that part of the city you can disappear without a trace and a quidnunc told me later those scores of young boys and girls, mostly runaways, derelicts and drug addicts from different towns and cities come to that rabbit-warren to engage in what mouths cannot write here. I was able to call him by his Nigerian name and the driver that conveyed me had his Hail Mary moment as I struggled to convince the emaciated young man to follow me. I couldn't bring him home, but to a nearby hotel to stabilize him first while at the same time binding all the demons in him. He hadn't taken a bath for days and the odor emanating from him was terrible. He ate and seemed to come up to and engaged me in conversations. I let his parents talk to him over the phone and pleaded with him to return home. He was not himself and no one could mistake this case apart from spiritual one. We may see such a young man as one of the "Bad Boys" referred to by the Inner Circle, but the worst of Bad Boys are the spiritual ones in top echelons of political leaderships around the world.

Beginning with Pharaoh Ramses of Egypt in the Book of Life who opened his diarrhea stinking mouth and belched: "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), since that pioneer and founding member of the Bad Boys Club of the Earth destroyed millions of the lives of Egyptian hoipolloi, they have since metastasized on earth. Hear one of them again; "…Who among all the gods of these nations that my fathers devoted to destruction has been able to deliver his people from my hand? How then can your God deliver you from my hand? Now do not let Hezekiah deceive you and mislead you like this. Do not believe him, for no god of any nation or kingdom has been able to deliver his people from my hand or the hand of my predecessors. How much less will your god deliver you from my hand!" And the servants of Sennacherib spoke further against the LORD God and against His servant Hezekiah.…" (2 Chronicles 32:14-16). Just as Ramses drowned and sank millions of chariots and souls down the bottom of the Red Sea, Sennacherib of Assyria ate his words and the wrath of the True Lord God Almighty fell on him and returned the way he came as the Most High decreed. And few months later, his two sons; Adramelek and Sharezer assassinated him, and the bad boy ended in the ash heap of history (2 Kings 19:37). Again, the bad boys yinz together in early history of the modern church and charrette thus: "What shall we do with these men?" they asked. "It is clear to everyone living in Jerusalem that a remarkable miracle has occurred through them, and we cannot deny it. But to keep this message from spreading any further among the people, we must warn them not to speak to anyone in this name." Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the Name of Jesus" (Acts 4:16-18). Thank God Almighty for the boldness of Apostle Peter who called off the bluff of the Bad Boys Club and went into sainthood by donating his blood for you and me as the Word of Life is still alive and changing lives today, Hallelujah! Remember another real bad boy dude called Herod who murdered James thinking he could stop the Gospel? His end: "… "because Herod did not give glory to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down and he was eaten by worms and died. But the word of God continued to spread and multiply" (Acts 12:23 & 24).

*The Bad Boys of Iraq: Saddam Hussein flanked by his two notorious sons: Udey and Quaisy.

In our contemporary era, the club of the bad boys has widened from nations to nations and territories to sundry climes just as the Word of Life says: "Therefore, Death expands its jaws, opening wide its mouth; into it will descend their nobles and masses with all their brawlers and revelers. So, people will be brought low, and everyone humbled, the eyes of the arrogant humbled" (Isaiah 5: 14 &15). Because the bad boys and their arrogance only last a moment and as I have disclosed here the nth time, it is Only the Great Alone Himself Who makes history, because all of us, you, and I, including the retinues of bad boys who want to be god-wannabees as deceived by the demons using them are just travelers on this earthly realm, "But the LORD Almighty will be exalted by His justice, and the Holy God will be proved Holy by His righteous acts" (Isaiah 5:16). At the height of his cruelty and barbarity, the head of the Bad Boys Club of Old Iraq, Saddam Hussein and his two young thuggish sons inflicted pains, miseries, and tortures on the poor citizens of the nation. Their notorieties were over the top, especially that demon-possessed brat known as Uday. Boy, did they live it up? Yes, they did, but the Almighty God Who has set a Day for Judgment ensured they paid for all their atrocities on their fellow human beings as He said in His immutable Words: "…For the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment" ( 2 Peter 2:9) and "…the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath" (Job 21:30). I still remember the asshole, Saddam Hussein who boasted of waging the mother of all wars against us only to suffer the grandfather of all defeats and captured in a spider hole and later ended in the gallows!

*Saddam Hussein, hanged to death after boasting of waging the mother of all wars only to suffer the grandfather of all defeats in our hands with his pitiful spoilt-rotten sons

How about another Big Bad Boy of the Bedouin Desert, Muammar Ghaddafi, the Mad Dog of Africa? At the height of his infamy and dictatorship, he amassed billion of petrodollars and expended a large chunk terrorizing opponents at home and exporting terrorism abroad. He fomented trouble overseas and caused wahala to his neighbors and badmouthed virtually all leaders across the globe. He murdered millions and cast himself as the Khalifah or deliverer of the Arab world and later the utopian king of Africa. Ghaddafi was a jackal and thought he was larger than life. For nearly half a century, he was demon-possessed and a living wraith. But since evil has an expiration date, this dictator forgot there is a Sovereign Lord God Almighty Whose Name is Jehovah. He is the Great Judge and told us without mincing words: "… For we will all stand before God's judgment seat. It is written "As surely as I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow before Me; every tongue will confess to God." So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God" (Romans 14:10-12). Ghaddafi thought he was invincible, but his feet slipped, and the God of Vengeance gave him his comeuppance. Like all bad boys before and will surely be after him, he died in public obloquy, unmissed, unwept, and unmourn. All bad boys have a date with God's Judgement.

*A quintessential bad boy, Ghaddafi thought he was invincible during his dictatorship, but his cup soon ran over, and God's Judgement fell on him and today he is a byword.

From Kwame Nkrumah who once saw himself as the Osagyefo or redeemer in his native Akan Language of Ghana and forgot that there is only One Redeemer and that is my Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ, Idi Amin Dada, the butcher of Uganda, Master Sergeant Sanuel Doe of Liberia to Sani Abacha, the Madman of Nigeria and many of the rest Bad Boys Club Members, the Almighty God is telling us, you and I, and all human beings that Judgment which is the Second and Final Death awaits us all after temporary physical death.

THE POLICE, PROSECUTORS, WITNESSES AND THE GREAT JUDGE

"Then I saw a great white throne and the One seated on it. Earth and heaven fled from His presence, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne. And there were open books, and one of them was the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their deeds, as recorded in the books. The sea gave up its dead, and Death and Hades gave up their dead, and each one was judged according to his deeds" --- (Revelation 21: 11-13).

I was delivering a talk at a Christian seminar few years ago in Nigeria and someone asked if retired Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida would get away with all the blood he shed while he was military leader in Nigeria between 1985-1993. I answered the person with the Word of Life as characteristic of me: "When evil people are not punished right away, it makes others want to do evil, too. Though a sinner might do a hundred evil things and might live a long time, I know it will be better for those who honor God. I also know it will not go well for evil people, because they do not honor God. Like a shadow, they will not last" (Ecclesiastes 8:11-13). The blood of Mr. Dele Giwa ordered to be murdered by Babangida must be avenged, because as He says; "Vengeance is Mine, and recompense; Their foot shall slip in due time; For the day of their calamity is at hand…" (Deuteronomy 32:45, Romans 12:19). The blood of MKO Abiola, Kudirat Abiola, even Sani Abacha that Babangida orchestrated and murdered unknown to many Nigerians will not go unavenged by a Vengeful True Lord God Almighty.

Just as the Bad Boys on Fox Tv Cops Programs are smoked out by policemen as law enforcement agents to face justice, Satan and his fallen angels are the policemen of the entire human race, but they are bad spiritual cops whose lawlessness, rebellion and disobedience led to their being thrown out of heaven. They are doomed forever; their names have been erased from the Book of Life and never again will they be counted among the children of the Living God and appear in the assembly of the Lord Jesus Christ. Indeed, Satan, the principalities and demons are lost forever (Revelation 12:7-12). Consequently, if you are a bad boy or remotely exhibit a smidgen of their rebellion, they are coming for you. Trust me, they will spiritually arrest you after death. The prosecutors are the Words of God which you read every time in this column and which I want to quote again from the Mouth of the Great Judge: "There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day" (John 12:48). The angels are the spectators and members of the audience and the One Who Judges and Judges Righteously is my Lord, Master, and Savior Jesus Christ, because ""…the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son…" (John 5:22). What is the nature of this Final Judgment? "See, I set before you today life and prosperity, -heaven-death and destruction-hell" (Deuteronomy 30:19). And when will this Great Judgment of our Lord Jesus Christ take place? "Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment…" (Hebrews 9:27). So, all you bad boys out there, secular, and spiritual, chew this now and fast too: "God has set a Day when He will judge the world with justice by the Man He has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising Him from the dead" (Acts 17:31). That Man-God and God-Man is Jesus Christ, period! Believe or Doubt this Truth, 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:

https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/030722.html

*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!
