Juliana Taiwo-Obalonye, Abuja The Industrial Policy and Competitiveness Advisory Council has thrown its weight behind President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to consult widely before Nigeria signs the African Continental Free Trade Agreement. President Buhari had, in March, cancelled a trip to Kigali, Rwanda, where an extra-ordinary summit of African Union was scheduled to sign the agreement….
“Sir, I’ve been sick for a long time. The sickness has consumed a lot of money for over 30 years. There is no orthodox and non-orthodox doctor that I have not seen. In fact, they said it was poison and that it has eaten all over my body. I exhausted my money on different kinds of drugs yet there was no improvement. I was sent home to come and die from abroad… While on my sickbed, my brother-in-law contacted you and informed you of my case. You asked us to order three bottles of your oil, which we did, and thereafter the instruction came. I was too religious with the whole instruction. I noticed that after applying the oil and drinking the one you asked me to drink, certain objects starting curling inside my body system; this continued for five days. On the seventh day, I vomited something I cannot explain at all. That same day something that looks like worm or little snake hurriedly fled out of my body. I fainted for a while and latter regained myself…That was the end of the sickness that consumed all my money. I thank God that I am alive today and God bless you for us…”

“We are grateful to God for answering us through the use of your oil and the accompanied prayers. It was a miracle indeed. My second daughter’s traditional marriage was to hold in a week’s time, but another man hypnotised her and eloped with her. This happened about two years ago and we could not trace them. When you were contacted you asked us to order your oil and use her cloth and picture to observe the necessary prayers. We did as you instructed, two weeks after the prayer, she called us from Ghana and came back to us. I cannot say more than this but a lot happened…God be praised.” (Anonymous).
The Bible says, “A prudent man foreseeth the evil and hideth himself, but the simple pass on, and are punished.” Proverbs 22:3. One may ask, how does the prudent man foresee the evil and hide himself from it? There are various means of receiving spiritual information within the unit of human consciousness. The prudent man is he who knows through divine knowledge and research (revelation by reading authentic books) that God has voiced all his intentions to humanity through nature. The will of God can be found in nature and he who understands it foresees the future. The future could be seen by various signs that are in nature, the prudent man knows it while the simple one is ignorant of same and he passes on and is punished.
The simple is he who looks at the divine voice in nature as omens or superstitions. I am aware of the fact that the inability of some Christians to understanding certain spiritual phenomenon has greatly led to the reason why certain realities are neglected and consequently nicknamed. As a result, the simple is punished under the system of thought that such belief system is blind faith. Regarding such as blind faith is a spiritual bugaboo that haunts the ignorant believer. Nevertheless, humanity must be saved!
There are things that happen to us that we do not have any explanation for. God ordered things in nature to speak to us in various ways and they all represent various subtle meanings. We suffer as a result of so many credos that are not native to spiritual reality. We create our own evils through our creed and the same produces the evil that we complain hitherto. Belief without understanding is the core foundation for error and spiritual misunderstanding. The limited thinking-cum-naïve implementation of biblical ideologies of some uninformed priests is one of the reasons responsible for demonism in contemporary society.
The simple that has a naïve priest as a leader must pass on those signs and be co-punished with his priest. The priest, having rejected proper knowledge must be punished by God. God said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me.” Hosea 4:6.
From the foregoing, it means that one of the ways God could reject a priest is by the priest’s rejection of true and divine knowledge. The ocean of wisdom abounds and the priest who scoops from such source is the one that has the ear and attention of the divine.
Signs are means of communication. Your being prudent is based on the understanding and interpretations of such signs. The simple, therefore, is the man who does not see reason to understand such signs and corresponding meanings. The fellow becomes like the pastor who prayed and instructed the boy to go ahead against the true instruction from the-Real-Divine that came through signs. Today, he is still in the hospital receiving treatment. It could interest you to know that after that incident, the twitching at the lower part of his eyes stopped. How could one interpret such? Oh, no, it is omen and superstition. This is the voice of a naïve priest. There are many ways God talks to man, let us not be hypocritical about this.
A young lady spoke to me few days ago and shared her own experience. As an evangelist in the vineyard of grace, she said that her cheek together with her lips were twitching simultaneously to the extent that she became afraid and prayed and fasted for it to stop but the prayer did not extinguish the body vibration and communication. Consequently, she lived in fear of the unknown as the twitching continued. As a result of same, she consulted her father in the Lord, who is a well-respected Bishop in a Pentecostal church, who, however, prayed for her and admonished her not to attach importance to such as it represented the pagan’s system of religious thought.
She complied with the instruction and detached her mind from it, yet it continued. When the twitching persisted, she re-contacted her Bishop, the Bishop being exasperated demanded that the young lady should come to him for a special deliverance session, which she finally obliged the great man of God. The Bishop then prayed and destroyed every spirit of omen and superstitious thinking in the mind of the young lady. At the end of the deliverance prayer, the lady evangelist received a call from her elder brother telling her that her only sister that returned from Germany, preparing to travel home, had died. The lady evangelist heard the news and shouted and fainted at the same time. She was rushed to the hospital and when she regained consciousness, she then called her Bishop to inform him of the news. It would interest you to know that the moment that news came, the body twitching stopped.
The Bishop was bamboozled and perplexed at the news and he encouraged the young lady. The lady Evangelist shared all her experience and I made her realise that there was more to human existence than wearing clerical regalia and jumping up and down on the pulpit without proper knowledge.
The young lady after reading my weekly article, called and shared this pathetic story with me and finally asked, if there could have been a way her sister would have been freed if she had knowledge and corresponding meanings of those signs? I smiled at her question and told her that those signs were designed to aid her access into the mind of the Divine in order to obtain mercy. The feelings that we do have are not ordinary sometimes. God speaks to us in different ways. The Bible says, “For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not” Job 33:14. God does not speak only but once to human beings but the point is that man does not regard it. How does God speak and man does not regard it? The answer is simple; man ignores himself and does not take cognizance of the voice of God around him.
If man takes cognizance of divine voice within him, irrespective of his religious creed and credo, certain things will not take him by surprise. O yes, he would not be taken unawares anyhow. He will gain access into time on time by those messages and act accordingly in order to forfend it. This is the basis of all my articles. The Bible enthuses, “Surely the lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants…” Amos 3:7. You are God’s servant so you should understand the silent cum vibrating messages of your God around your body and save yourself.
