I wish I have a voice over this Nation like Baba Adeboye and Daddy Oyedepo and Papa Ayo Oritsejafor and Daddy Kumuyi and Daddy Okonkwo!
What will I do with it? I will raise it in a Trumpet call to the North, the South, the East and the West of the Land and summon THE BODY to meet me at the City Centre in Maiduguri on a set day, from sunrise to sun set, without police or soldiers on guard!
What will we gather for? To plead with Heaven for our Nation. To roll back the hordes of Hell and seal with Christ’s Eternal Blood the gates of Horror opened against our Land; To disconnect our Governmental Leaders from the hold of the powers of Darkness that have their minds in chains; to open the portals of Heaven for a rain off righteousness upon our Land!
“Nahash, king of the Ammonites came up, and encamped against Jabeshgilead…”
I Samuel 11:1
But Jabeshgiliead was too terrified to fight. So the people caine up with a resolution, They sent a powerful delegate to dialogue with Nahash and negotiate a honorable term of National surrender to that vicious being called Nahash! The situation was tense and critical. The Elders of jabeshgilead, the Men! said to Nahash:
We Surrender! We will serve you as slaves Please let us sign a pact to that effect! (vslb)
Hear the reply:
And Nahash the Ammorite answered, on this condition will I accept your surrender (vs 2)
That I will pluck out the right eye of every one of you and lay it out before you and your God for a reproach upon Israel (vs 2)
The word Nahash means SERPENT! What is the serpent saying in Chibok? Or are we still pretending?
Confronted with this demonic proposal, the Elders of Jabeshgilead sent to Nahash, saying:
Give us seven days to send your message to our brethren in the south, in the west and in the east; our brethren in Lagos and in Port. Harcourt and Wairi and Ibadan and unto all the coasts of Israel; If no one rises for our help after seven days, then you can have our right eyes and carry them to the forest of Sambisafor an eternal reproach upon the Church of God in Nigeria and upon our Leaders! The message got to Gibeah and all the people lifted up their voices and cried! They were all alarmed! ‘Wow non 11sf.,
The message got to Gibeah and all the people lifted up their voices and cried! They were all alarmed! “How can this happen,” they said. But they remained in their comfort zone and preached nice and sad sermons on the case! They didn’t want to be involved in “politics”!’
But Saul came from the farm and met everyone crying. He asked what happened and was told of the Boast of the Serpent! How he appeared on television and disdained the God of lsnael!
“Saul said, what aileth the people that they weep? And they told him the tidings of the men of
North Eastern Nigeria…”
“And the spirit of God came upon Saul when he heard those tidings, end his anger was kindled greatly.” (vs 6)
Some Reverend gentlemen are never angered by anything! They play it cool all the time, even when God weeps!
Saul’s anger was kindled! Then he did something completely strange! lie grabbed some bulls, killed them and cut them into pieces and tent all of the pieces by the hands of messengers to all the coasts of Israel saying: Whosoever come not forth after me and Samuel as we march on Maiduguri City Centre, that Christian man or woman is in big trouble!
That message went alt through the coasts of Israel like whirlwind and caught up with the message of terror earlier sent from Nahash and melted the fear of death from the peoples’ heart!
“And the fear of the Lord fell on the people, and they came out with one consent…” (vs 7)
Let our fathers callus out. Let them summon us to Maiduguri City Centre, and we shall be there! All of us—North, South, West and East!
It is those whom God has given the Voice that can call! Saul was newly anointed Leader over Israel when that incident happened. Samuel was the Prophet of God in the Land. They were the ones with the Voice of Summon to Summon!
Let our Fathers, our Leaders, the ones we have followed to do anything they had asked us to do in the past, let them call us now. We will follow them!
To where should they call us? To Maiduguri City Centre! Why Maiduguri instead of Redemption Camp or Canaan Land for example? Because for this purpose, Redemption camp, Canaan Land and other such places in the sonth are symbols of our corporate retreat in the face of Nahash’s challenge! For this purpose, theyare our fortified city of escape white the Nation bums!
And fear of the LORD fell npon3he-people and they came out with one consent”
Let us come out! Out to the field! Out to where Nahash is about to complete his 40 days and 40 nights of serpentine ranting against the God of our covenant!
About 330,000 people responded to the summon of the Spirit. And message was sentto Jabeshgilead:
“Tell our people at Jabeshgilead, Tomorrow, by THAT TIME THE SUN BE HOT YOUSHALL HAVE HELP! (vs 9)
When will we have help in the North East? Is it until the SERPENT, Nahash have our right eyes as eternal reproach upon the Church?!
“Then Mordecai answered Esther, Think not with yourself that you shall escape in Lagos or Port-Harcourt or
Warn or Ibadan or Enugu more then all the brethren in the North East For you altogether hold your peace AT THIS TIME, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the North-East and to our Nation and the people FROMANOTHER PLACE” Esther 4:13,14
It is for a time such as this that God places Leaders over his church. Let our Leaders callus now. Not just for what have happened and are happening, but for what MAY STILLHAPPEN if we don’t arise now!
“And it was so on the morrow, that Saul put the people in three companies; and they came into the midst of the host in the morning watch, and slew the Anunonites until the heat of the day: and it came to pass, that they which remained were scattered, so that two of them were not left together.
I Samuel 11:11
Let our Fathers call us out. We need their summon for us to arise. We need theft courage to make us stand. We need their voice to fire us! Just one day for a mighty cry to the True and Living God! One day to discomfit the hosts of Darknoss! ohe slay to let our Nation know that there is a God in Nigeria.
You are our Fathers, our Leaders at a time such as this. This generation will never forget your names, EITHER WAY!
