umbers are very important in family life, marriage and other areas of human endeavors. It is not by accident the True Lord God Almighty created Man as the generic entity to rule planet earth and made Adam the representative of the Man He created. Adam was one and thus alone. The Creator knew that the Number One represented loneliness, selfishness and unproductive life so He observed: "The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him" (Gen. 2:18). Consequently, the Number of One represents all the above: selfishness, loneliness, desertion, abandonment and bareness. The Number Two is the exact opposite of Number One; it represents unity, collaboration, engagement and shared efforts and concerns. No wonder, the Word of Life praises Number Two: "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken" (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12). A brother called and asked for prayer. The Holy Spirit said I shouldn't pray for or with him, because He would not answer his prayer; "Tell him to go and settle his fight with his wife and then I will answer his prayer." Anytime I am in quandary and hitting my head on the walls for unanswered prayers, I invite Dr Margie Neal-Fayemiwo as a prayer buddy and things change. Hallelujah! The power of Two is great and no wonder the Lord Jesus Christ disclosed: "Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven" (Matthew 18:19). But there is a snag: "Can two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?" (Amos 3:3). If you attend a church where you don't like the pastor or stay in a congregation to participate in the prayer of the preacher you don't like, you're wasting your time. None of the prayers offered there will work for you. Butt out and look for another church. You can't benefit from anything or any person you hate, period!
The Number Three is Divine; it's called the Trinity: God the Father, God the Son and God, the Holy Spirit. From Genesis to Revelation, the Trinity is unmistakably discernible. "In the beginning, God (the Father) created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the (Holy) Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God (the Son) said:" (Gen.1:1-3). The Trinity started the Holy Bible in three verses. Praise the Lord. The Almighty Father cannot be One Entity and still be the God of Love. It's impossible! And when we say the Lord God Almighty is Triune, we are not saying He is Three Separate Entities but Three in His Distinctions. Even we human beings we are three-in-one; man the spirit, man the soul and man the body: For the word of God is alive and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing (human) soul and (human) spirit, (human body) joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." (Hebrews 4:12). If the soul, spirit and body aren't separate, then they don't need to be divided by the Word of God. Because the Lord God Almighty is Triune, we humans are also triune in nature, because we were created in His Image and likeness. Anyone who argues to the contrary is warped, unscriptural and sensuous. Other references: "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth" (3John 2KJV). "The LORD appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day.2 Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground" (Gen. 18:1-2). "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:18-19). "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one" (I John 5:7).
The Number Four represents the four domains of creation namely: the amphibian or marine life, the arboreal domain, the vegetation/animal life and the human realm. These four areas of earthly realm are symbolized by four creatures namely: lion, ox, eagle and man. When you summon the number four in prayers targeted to human affairs and understand the spiritual meaning of what you are doing, mixed with the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and His Precious Blood, things begin to happen. This is why it is extremely important to pay close attention to the power of numerals in marriage and spiritual affairs, indeed in all human endeavors.

OUR PROPHECIES ON ROBERT MUGABE AND ZIMBABWE
"This cosmic contest between the Forces of God and Satan, Good and Evil are about to burst open on the human race and only those with the Holy Spirit will decipher these worldly events. President Paul Biya and President Robert Mugabe of Cameroon and Zimbabwe should pray to survive the year as presidents. A serious power vacuum which will lead to deaths, assassinations and inter-tribal wars if care is not taken will ensue in Zimbabwe this year 2015 following the passage of Mr. Mugabe. Monday January 15, 2015 https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/011215.html
On Saturday July 16, 2016 we reiterated again the incipient end of Robert Mugabe. Here is the link: https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/071616.html
*Mugabe: the political ogre of Zimbabwe
CAMEROUN AND ZIMBABWE: President Robert Mugabe is embattled in Zimbabwe. Those British scientists that came up with the ludicrous research that Robert Mugabe is destined to live forever will eat their words this year, because Mugabe is a mortal and as the True Lord God Almighty said in His Words in Genesis 6:3: "Then the LORD said, "My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years." Zimbabwe is currently embroiled in intractable crisis as reported by the local and foreign media (See this link https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-36751167). Well, as early as Monday January 12, 2015, we saw what is currently happening in the Southern African nation. Here were our exact words: "President Paul Biya and President Robert Mugabe of Cameroon and Zimbabwe should pray to survive the year as presidents. A serious power vacuum which will lead to deaths, assassinations and inter-tribal wars if care is not taken will ensue in Zimbabwe this year 2015 following the passage of Mr. Mugabe." (See the link here: https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/011215.html /)."
The above were our words on the situation in Zimbabwe and the shame and ignominious exit of Mr. Robert Mugabe two years ago. But we haven't seen and heard the last yet on the snowballing events in Zimbabwe. More are still coming and stay tuned.
Meanwhile, Paul Biya of neighboring Cameron is next. As we disclosed two years ago as part of our prophecies for Nigeria and Africa, a sweeping political see-saw is being unleashed on the Continent and only with those with spiritual insight will know what the Lord God Almighty is planning for the Black race.
OUR PROPHECIES ON ANAMBRA STATE GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION AND THE RETURN OF WILLIE OBIANO
On Friday January 06, 2017, here were our exact prophecies on the outcome of the Anambra State governorship elections almost a year away. Here is the link: https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/010617.html
*The Lord showed us the victory of Obiano as far back as last year
ANAMBRA STATE: Former Gov. Peter Obi should not give up and quit politics as there is a national role for him to play very soon in Nigeria. Willie Obiano will make it to his second term, but again, can APGA remain as one and minority political party? Obiano will have his mind to make in the next political re-alignment about to occur in Nigeria. Gov. Willie Obiano should go and reconcile quickly with Peter Obi, if he intends to return for a second term this year in 2017 for the governorship election. Ifeanyi Ubah should support Obiano as Ubah will not win. The rest political gladiators should wait till 2021 after Obiano's second term is done. The Ubah Brothers should pray against sudden death of one of their own.
On Wednesday September 20, 2017 we reiterated what the Holy Spirit revealed to us earlier on about a year before that Gov. Willie Obiano would cost home to victory without qualms. Here is the link to the reiteration: https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/092017.html ANAMBRA 2017: IF GOV. OBIANO WANTS TO RETURN : On Friday January 06, 2017 we wrote in this column thus: " ANAMBRA STATE: Former Gov. Peter Obi should not give up and quit politics as there is a national role for him to play very soon in Nigeria. Willie Obiano will make it to his second term, but again, can APGA remain as one and minority political party? Obiano will have his mind to make in the next political re-alignment about to occur in Nigeria. Gov. Willie Obiano should go and reconcile quickly with Peter Obi, if he intends to return for a second term this year in 2017 for the governorship election. Ifeanyi Ubah should support Obiano as Ubah will not win. The rest political gladiators should wait till 2021 after Obiano's second term is done. The Ubah Brothers should pray against sudden death of one of their own. Link
What we saw nearly a year ago is still the same. Gov. Obiano should do all within his powers and humanly possible to reach out to former Gov. Peter Obi so this will not be his undoing in the 2017 Governorship Election in Anambra State.
ON TITHES AND UNNECESSARY CONTROVERSY This is one of the silliest matters any genuinely born-again Christian should ever argue about, because the Word of Life is clear on it. I have written about this matter in the past in this column and may be its worth commenting once again. Any redeemed, blood-bought and Holy Spirit-filled child of the True Lord God Almighty who doesn't pay his or her tithe is robbing the Lord God Almighty. When you rob the Lord God Almighty, you will never prosper. All the men and women of the True Lord God Almighty who walked in obedience with the Father paid tithe; from Genesis to Revelation. If you say Abraham is your spiritual father and you want to claim his blessing under the Abrahamic Covenant, he-Abraham-paid his tithe. "He blessed him and said, "Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth. And praise be to God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand." Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything" (Gen. 14:19-20). It is not enough for you to sing: "Abraham blessings are mine, I am blessed in the morning, I am blessed in the evening, Abraham blessings are mine," without obeying the instructions tied to appropriating the Abrahamic blessings.
The patriarch, Jacob made a vow to the Lord God Almighty to give a tenth of all his possessions and material wealth to the Lord, if the Lord God Almighty would prosper him. "Early the next morning Jacob took the stone he had placed under his head and set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it. He called that place Bethel, though the city used to be called Luz. Then Jacob made a vow, saying, "If God will be with me and will watch over me on this journey I am taking and will give me food to eat and clothes to wear so that I return safely to my father's household, then the LORD will be my God and this stone that I have set up as a pillar will be God's house, and of all that you give me I will give you a tenth." (Gen. 28:19-22). The Holy Spirit that inspired the Old Testament is the same that authored the New Testament and thus complement each other. This is necessary to explain to baby Christians who argue ignorantly and unnecessarily about the issues of Life and the immutable Word of God. Consequently, the Book of Hebrews gave a throw-back to the Old Testament, pointedly the Abrahamic Covenant to underscore the spiritual duty of tithing by all believers thus: "This Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of God Most High. He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings and blessed him, and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything. First, the name Melchizedek means "king of righteousness"; then also, "king of Salem" means "king of peace." Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever. Just think how great he was: Even the patriarch Abraham gave him a tenth of the plunder! Now the law requires the descendants of Levi who become priests to collect a tenth from the people-that is, from their fellow Israelites-even though they also are descended from Abraham. This man, however, did not trace his descent from Levi, yet he collected a tenth from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises. And without doubt the lesser is blessed by the greater. In the one case, the tenth is collected by people who die; but in the other case, by him who is declared to be living. One might even say that Levi, who collects the tenth, paid the tenth through Abraham, because when Melchizedek met Abraham, Levi was still in the body of his ancestor." (Hebrews 7:1-10).
Paying of tithes is a command of the Lord God Almighty and it is not a choice. Christians who complain that tithes are being abused or stolen by pastors are simply being mischievous. Payment of tithes is akin to payment of taxes in the secular world. Do you stop paying income taxes because the government is misusing and misappropriating the taxes? If you refuse to pay your income taxes, you will go to jail. How much more if you rob the Almighty God?
