If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Happy New Month and Happy Independence Anniversary, Nigeria. It is with great joy that I welcome you into the month of October 2021. Glory be to God. Today, Nigeria celebrates her Independence. Independence is to be free. To be free from the chains of satan and from the clutches of sin that have kept Nigeria from moving forward. It has gotten so bad in Nigeria that even Christianity (the Gospel of Light) that ought to foster unity and oneness among its membership is not excluded.
No doubt, there is passion for the Gospel of Christ in Nigeria. Christians in Nigeria have endured many persecutions. But they have pursued excellence, achievement and elevation instead of the true love of Jesus Christ. They have elevated structure above God’s character. They seek God’s hand more than God’s face. They seek for miracles and prophecies instead of God’s Word. It is ironic that believers of today follow God for what He can do for them and not for who He is.
Churches are now doing more of showman than ministering God’s word and fighting for membership than winning souls into God’s kingdom. There is competition of who pastors the largest congregation, who has 5,000 capacity, and how many services they run than on preaching the message that can really change life and keep people rapturable. It grieves God’s heart that believers now apply their faith, strength, character and passion to many wrong things.
Instead of serving God, they are busy building their own kingdoms. Christianity that is supposed to be a Gospel of Love and Truth have exalted charlatans as shepherds, whose major aim is to fleece and swindle God’s sheep. Christians in Nigeria are surrounded by a vast multitude of widows and orphans – persecuted for their faith in God – and yet they neglect them, instead they lined up acquisitions and materials gains likes politicians. They collect monies from members; use them to build schools that the children of those who contributed to the building cannot attend. They preach love but do not practice love.
Beloved, I call on all believers in Nigeria today to a dramatic and immediate course correction. Let us stop conforming to the patterns of this world and return to God. I also speak to the womb of Nigeria, no wicked plan shall befell thee. All secret meetings and plans against this Nation shall fail. May God punish those who want to scatter Nigeria. Nigeria, it is well with you in Jesus Name, Amen. Once again, Happy Independence Anniversary, Nigeria.
Meditation: It is only when we love one another, preach more of God’s undiluted message, live the gospel and live right that we shall be able to take this Nation for Christ.
RM: Nigeria Arise
Prayer: I pray for peace to be restored back to Nigeria. May all the secret plans and meetings against Nigeria scatter by fire in Jesus Name, Amen.
