The aliens, foreigners and the Israelites were the culprits and woes of Ancient Egypt. Somehow, there must be a way to get rid of them. Henceforth, it would be Egypt for the Egyptians so Pharaoh issued a ukase that all Israeli baby boys should be slaughtered. Infanticide is great evil before human kind and the Lord God Almighty, but He allowed it so He would accomplish His purpose in the overall Divine Scheme of things in Egypt and the world. He disclosed much later why He allowed evil in Exodus 8:16: “But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” Who installed Pharaoh Ramses as king of Egypt during this period in human history? Satan but the Lord God Almighty allowed it. Can Satan install people as kings and presidents of nations? Absolutely yes! Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself stated it plainly in John 18:36: “Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.” From the Word of Life, we know that the current world system is not rule and run by the True Lord God Almighty, period! So who is running the show on earth right now? Satan of course! Has the Lord God Almighty lost control of the earth and world? Through the revealed Word of Life, the Holy Bible, we know that the True Lord God Almighty rules the earth, but doesn’t rule the world. Apostle John made this known to us plainly in I John 2:15-17.” Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.”
There is a difference between the earth and the world. In all that the True Lord God Almighty does; in everything He allows and permits, including the bad, Satanic and egregious and things, people and events He considers acceptable, even though they fell short of His perfect will are collectively geared toward His Divine Plan for the earth to proclaim His Glory and Honor. So I missed it terribly in the just-concluded U.S. Presidential Election that Mr. Donald J. Trump would not be president. Yes, we missed it but albeit temporarily. You know we “missed “it too during the David Cameron British Election, but few months after we “missed it” Mr. Cameron resigned and was gone. Didn’t He tell us Himself in Isaiah 55:8-10: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Each time we gave prophetic words and utterances in this column about global events and great personalities, and we asked that prayers and supplications should be offered, many often wonder why prayers should be offered for such prophecies. I am pained to explain over and over again how the Holy Spirit operates. Every plan, promises, prophetic words and messages of the Lord are not sacrosanct. In other words, the blessings of the Lord God Almighty to His children are not etched out in Rosetta stone. The blessings must be appropriated by the people through faith. Similarly, the bad things being planned by Satan and his demons can also be averted with prayers. The Word of Life made this known plainly and so there is nothing to debate about this. As He said in Deuteronomy 30:15: “See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.” In Verse 19 of that Deuteronomy 30, He explicated further when He said: “This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.” The most important word here is “choose.” In Ezekiel 33:13-16, the Lord God Almighty explained the two distinct choices before us all which determine the fulfillment of His promises, blessings and prophecies thus: ” If I tell a righteous person that they will surely live, but then they trust in their righteousness and do evil, none of the righteous things that person has done will be remembered; they will die for the evil they have done. And if I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ but they then turn away from their sin and do what is just and right- if they give back what they took in pledge for a loan, return what they have stolen, follow the decrees that give life, and do no evil-that person will surely live; they will not die. None of the sins that person has committed will be remembered against them. They have done what is just and right; they will surely live.” Even in the vital and most decisive issues of going to heaven and hell, we all as individuals must choose as John 3:16 made clear: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” The most important word here is: “whoever” which is a choice. In other words, on matters of going to heaven or hell, there is no where some people’s names have been written down as citizens of heaven and there is no where some people’s name have been written down as going to hell. The True Lord God Almighty doesn’t operate by destiny. We all have our individual choices; heaven or hell. Two individuals in the same circumstances were offered these two choices as they were about to transit to the Other Side and confronted with either heaven or hell. The one on the right made a decision to go to heaven based on his last statement on earth while the one on the left chose by his own word to go to hell. The two thieves crucified with our Lord Jesus Christ gave us a template on this matter: ” Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed…One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”… But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise”” (Luke 23:32,39-43).
These free choices of the True Lord God Almighty are also available before us in matters of leadership. When people come to me for spiritual counseling, especially political leadership, I cannot emphasize this matter enough. There is no where that the name of someone has been written down from heaven to be a president, governor, senator or what have you. Political leadership is not a function of destiny or pre-ordained, pre-planned or pre-destined work of God. That is unscriptural and unbiblical. Yes, the Lord God Almighty has a purpose and will for each and every one of us, so also do Satan and his demons have wills, purposes and plans for us as well. But the plans, purposes and promises of the Lord God Almighty are not sacrosanct and must be achieved willy-nilly. You and I have free choices whether or not to accept and fulfill the plans, promises and purposes of the True Lord God Almighty for our lives. Two politicians came to me for the same thing: to serve as governors. The Holy Spirit told us to tell the two gentlemen to do the same thing; one believed and obeyed; the second didn’t believe and disobeyed the Words of the Holy Spirit. The one that believed and obeyed the directives of the Holy Spirit became a governor; the second that disobeyed couldn’t make it. Same situation, same country, but different outcomes just as it was the case with the two thieves crucified with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Throughout human history, individually we made history in our small part of the world. The True Lord God Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and the Sovereign Lord God of the cosmos and everything is the One really making history. The rest of us come and go, for in the overall Play of Life, you and I are actors/actresses, but the Author, Director and Producer of the Play of Life is the Jehovah Lord God Almighty who is forever praised. Hallelujah! Mr. Donald Trump may have “won” the just-concluded presidential election in the United States, but he is not the choice of the Sovereign Lord God Almighty. I have His Spirit; the Holy Spirit of the True Lord God Almighty. I didn’t call myself and didn’t want to do this job in the first place. He called me and I know His Voice. He talks to me and I hear Him distinctly. His Words cannot and can never change. “Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens” (Psalm 119:89).
Mr. Trump is not the choice of the True Lord God Almighty for the presidency of the United States of America. I repeat again; Mr. Donald J. Trump was not the choice of the True Lord God Almighty in the just-concluded presidential elections in the United States of America. Unless the words of the Holy Bible aren’t the revealed Words of the True Lord God Almighty, because the Jehovah Lord God Almighty cannot contradict His revealed Words. White Americans may shout, boo, threaten and intimidate, but soon, very soon, the picture will be clear to all Americans and the rest people of the world. There is something, a great something that the True Lord God Almighty is about to do not only in the United States of America, but on earth with the emergence of Mr. Donald Trump. So if Mr. Trump was not ordained and made president by the Lord God Almighty, who did? Satan, period! So why would the True Lord God Almighty allow it? The same answer He gave in Exodus 8:16: “But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”
History, both secular and Biblical is a guide to human life and time. In Divine Order of things, the True Lord God Almighty allows certain events to occur and certain people to be planted in pinnacles of political power by Satan to achieve His purpose. King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon thought it was his demon god, Nebo that was behind his military exploits and conquests as he killed and pillaged the Israelites. Habakkuk was perplexed and vexatious at God for allowing such evil. God answered Habakkuk thus: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.”See, the enemy is puffed up ;his desires are not upright-but the righteous person will live by his faithfulness -indeed, wine betrays him; he is arrogant and never at rest. Because he is as greedy as the grave and like death is never satisfied, he gathers to himself all the nations and takes captive all the peoples.”Will not all of them taunt him with ridicule and scorn, saying,”?’Woe to him who piles up stolen goods and makes himself wealthy by extortion! How long must this go on?’ Will not your creditors suddenly arise? Will they not wake up and make you tremble? Then you will become their prey. Because you have plundered many nations, the peoples who are left will plunder you. For you have shed human blood; you have destroyed lands and cities and everyone in them.”Woe to him who builds his house by unjust gain, setting his nest on high to escape the clutches of ruin! You have plotted the ruin of many peoples, shaming your own house and forfeiting your life. The stones of the wall will cry out, and the beams of the woodwork will echo it. “Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed and establishes a town by injustice! Has not the Lord Almighty determined that the people’s labor is only fuel for the fire, that the nations exhaust themselves for nothing? For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.”Woe to him who gives drink to his neighbors, pouring it from the wineskin till they are drunk, so that he can gaze on their naked bodies! You will be filled with shame instead of glory. Now it is your turn! Drink and let your nakedness be exposed! The cup from the Lord’s right hand is coming around to you, and disgrace will cover your glory. The violence you have done to Lebanon will overwhelm you, and your destruction of animals will terrify you. For you have shed human blood; you have destroyed lands and cities and everyone in them.”Of what value is an idol carved by a craftsman? Or an image that teaches lies? For the one who makes it trusts in his own creation; he makes idols that cannot speak. Woe to him who says to wood, ‘Come to life!’Or to lifeless stone, ‘Wake up!’Can it give guidance? It is covered with gold and silver; there is no breath in it.”The Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him” (Habakkuk 2:2-20).
King Herod slaughtered the baby boys in Palestine to prevent the emergence of the King of kings and Lord of lords, and the Lord God Almighty Father allowed it, but our Savior, Jesus Christ was born and lived to redeem the entire human race. Matthew 2:13-18. “When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.” When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled:”A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.”
Just as Pharaoh committed infanticide eons ago so Herod did. The True Lord God Almighty allowed these and many egregious acts in human history as telos to the accomplishment of His Divine Plans and Purposes for the world. As He disclosed in Deuteronomy 32: 39: “See now that I myself am he! There is no god besides me. I put to death and I bring to life, I have wounded and I will heal, and no one can deliver out of my hand.” While the bookmakers, seers, prophets, pollsters, analysts, commentators, prognosticators, false prophets, augurs, etc are wringing their hands and wondering why we all missed it, the True Lord God Almighty Who called me in truth and deeds says, not over yet. There is something, real something that the Jehovah Lord God Almighty is about to do in America and in our world at this epochal period in human history. Let’s wait and see. It shan’t be long and we shall see anon. The whole of Germany went agog in wild jubilations and frenzied optimism when Adolf Hitler seized power in Germany in the 1930s. We know the rest. We shall see but let’s wait. Something big is about to happen. A New World is about to be birthed. We shall all see soon in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
N.B: For those who love to cherry pick and gloat over “unfulfilled” prophecies, save your time and do not email me. I will not read and entertain your comments. Wait and stay tuned till the entire episode plays out in the United States and the world. While I would not go over the top echoing an Asian leader’s grim assessment of the place of the United States in the world with the “election” of Mr. Trump, by the time the whole picture emerges, Americans will be shell-shocked of global events and America’s Number One Position in the world.
