The Up-coming Christian Walk Revivial Across The Length And Breadth Of The Federal Republic Of Nigeria

We all have taken it for granted, because we are already used to it as a tradition. We hop unto the aircraft and in few hours, we reach our various destinations. In spite of the latest discomforts we face at our various airports caused by Osama Bin Ladin and his misbegotten cretins, traveling by air is still man’s most accomplished tour de force on the planet earth. Having logged in several thousands of miles crisscrossing nations and continents, one wonders at the greatest blessings and powers that the Lord God Almighty has invested in the children of Adam and Eve. Imagine if our First Parents had not fallen in the Garden of Eden, and how far we would have gone in conquering our world? Of all God’s creations, we humans are the only ones capable of mastering our various habitations and using them for our various activities. All other creatures are confined to their natural habitats but humans, because of God’s Love for us created us as masters and overseers over his entire creation as Psalm 8: 4-9 pointed out: “What is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet: all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild, the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” No wonder Satan and his demons detest the human race, including you and me with passion. How anyone will remain an unbeliever and impervious to the Good News when you fly across the oceans of the world beats my imagination! How any sensible person will ever think or a reasonable human being will even entertain the asinine thought there is no Lord God Almighty, the Creator of the universe and the earth, including all that are in them, each time one flies across the oceans befuddles the reasonable mind! No wonder, the Word of Life says: “The fool has said in his (or her) heart, there is no God.” (Psalm 14: 1). Immediately the aircraft begins to fly at above 36,000 plus altitude across the Atlantic or Pacific for eight straight hours, I don’t care who you are, but you look like and appear like dodo, actually a -nobody. At this point in time, you’re basically on your own. It doesn’t matter whether you are flying on Air Force One; the most secured and safest aircraft on the planet or whatever, you come to terms with your own human limitation and inevitable mortality. Anything happens during those “eternal” periods, it’s all over. Of course, for those of us working for His Eternal Majesty, we have the assured assurances that no evil will befall us and no Satan can take us out, and our lives are hidden with Him and no death can kill us without our Eternal Boss saying so; thus, we do not panic but anchor our faith in Him. As Galatians 2: 20 assured me: “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Still, you appear helpless. It’s no longer you calling the shots of life at that moment, but the pilots and his/her crew members and they too are being controlled by other forces; nature and weather which are in turn controlled by the Supreme Maker. Only a seared mind and conscience will abandon faith at this very moment. Till of course, you are back to ground and land.

We should remember it took about four to six months for the early forefathers to journey from Old Europe to the New World via the Atlantic Ocean almost a thousand years ago. The African slaves spent nearly six months on the same seas and oceans from Native Africa to Atlanta, South Carolina and the New England shores during the obnoxious Trans-Atlantic Slave Routes. We junket between those lands now in a matter of hours. The Spirit of the Lord God was indeed with the greatest pioneers of history and they got it right after all, when the Wright Brothers gave us the greatest gift of the Creator, the modern aircraft to the human race. When you read the Christian backgrounds of Orville and Wilbur Wright, whose Indiana father were pastors and how they dropped out of college in Ohio and later ended up in North Carolina, again, because of the missionary activities of their parents; Bishop Milton Wright and Reverend Susan Koerner –Wright, you would know that it wasn’t science and technology that inspired them considering both had no high school diploma or formal education. They were inspired by the Holy Spirit, period, because this tool-the modern aircraft-would be needed to proclaim the Good News of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For as Ephesians 2: 10 rightly pointed out: “For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” The Wright Brothers never married, and didn’t leave a child behind, even though one died at 45 years old and the younger lived to be 76. They achieved their purpose in life and became God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for the Wright Brothers to do. Hallelujah! Their purpose; give the human race the modern aircraft so that the Good News would be preached in all the nations. The same Holy Spirit fell on Mr. Johannes Gutenberg in the 13th Century when he invented modern-day printing press. Today’s children, media and people of the world do not care to acknowledge the Christian backgrounds of many of the world’s inventors and discoverers, but with them and us we shall all appear before the Lord’s Hall of Fame and Faith; “(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect” (Hebrews 11: 38-40). Hallelujah! It was in furtherance of this advanced good works that we went to Nigeria for ten days to prepare the frameworks for our up-coming Christian Walk Revival Program coming up later in the year in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. These forthcoming revival activities were directed by the Holy Spirit and it will take us to 14 major cities and towns in Nigeria in the coming months. For those with spiritual insights, a great spiritual warfare had just taken place in the land. Again, only those with spiritual awareness and are spiritually alert will understand what we are talking about here. For millions of Nigerians at home and abroad that joined hands with us to fast and pray for our dear fatherland earlier this year at the threshold of the last general elections, the spiritual slugfest doesn’t abate. In 2 Peter 5: 8, we are exhorted thus: “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” The Lord God Almighty Who created Lucifer before he became Satan once asked Satan after he made himself Satan: “One day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came with them. The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” (Job 1: 6-7). Some have asked; why was Satan also able to present himself as an angel before the Lord? Satan is an angel, albeit a fallen angel. The powers given to him by God as at that time had not been withdrawn so he used that power to appear before the Lord God Almighty as one of the angels. Satan and his demons were not driven completely out of heaven until our Lord Jesus Christ was born and consequent Crucifixion, Death and Resurrection as revealed : “ A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days. Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.” (Revelation 12: 1-10).

It was instructive to note the answer Satan gave to the Lord God Almighty in the Angelic Assembly in Job’s prologue thus: “Satan answered the Lord, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it,” (Job 1: 7b). Those same words were uttered by Cain when he was driven away from the Presence of the Lord. In other words, Satan is a vagrant and a vagabond. He doesn’t take a rest and cannot go on vacation. As long as he cannot rest, because, as the Sovereign Lord God Almighty told Satan in Isaiah 45: 9: “Woe to anyone who quarrels with his/her Maker,” the world is not secured. All the mess and problems in the world are caused majorly by Satan, his fallen angels known as principalities, demons and their human hirelings. One of my sons once asked me when they were teenagers: “Dad, why is it that we have to pray every day in this house? Can’t we just rest a day?” Smart kid! So I replied: “Son, why is it that we have to eat every day in this house? Can’t we just rest a day and say we’re not going to eat today?” He looked at me and replied: “But Dad, that’s impossible! We will all die!” We all burst out laughing. I didn’t let my smart kid have the final say, so I told him to close his eyes and lets pray and as we did, I said; “Those eyes will remain closed everyday unless we pray and then those eyes will re-open by the Lord Jesus Christ who only can open those eyes every day” and everyone began to laugh the more. But seriously, we cannot be at ease on Mt Zion these days, because as Ephesians 6: 12 aptly brought the reality of this spiritual war to us daily: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” That we have a new government in Nigeria doesn’t mean the end of the spiritual warfare. The people in government need our prayers now more than ever before, because, change that is truly change can never and will not happen, if the people that desire that meaningful and fundamental change do not fight and struggle for it. The spiritual battles and cosmic warfare we fight daily as individuals are relentless and more so as nations. We cannot fight today and tomorrow battles with yesterday’s tools and ammunition.

I thank all those who made my recent trip to Nigeria successful. I thank those special men and women of God in the Garden City of Port Harcourt who hosted and provided for my needs, I pray for my host in Lagos and all the various men and women of God who visited. I thank my Personal Assistant in Nigeria who coordinated all my itineraries throughout my short stay. I thank my friends in Ogun State, the ever-loving people of the State of Osun and the hospitable souls in Oyo State who made me feel at home in my native land. There were many activities that were lined up for my visit but for constraints of time, we were unable to accomplish and attend to all but by His Grace, we will achieve much during my next visit when The Christian Walk Revival Program Activities will take place in a town and city near you. Please watch out in the coming weeks and months ahead in 2015.

HOW NOT TO BE WELCOMED BACK HOME? I returned back home on Friday to a Black Friday to the United States initially upbeat and energized having had much spiritual harvest in Africa in the past ten days only to be confronted with the bad news at the Atlanta Airport. In few minutes and hours, five individuals swept human civilization and history into antiquity. They say they know more about the human race than the Creator of the human race; the Lord God Almighty and redefined how history is made and the future is determined. For years, the gale of darkness had been hovering our land; the United States of America. The assault on the human race began earnest and we held prayers, vigil and nights intercessions on behalf of our land so that this foreboding darkness and eeriness would be driven back from our shores. Alas, Satan went for the men and women of the United Sates Supreme Court and just five individuals wiped away our common heritage and destroyed human civilization. They said it’s Ok for men to marry men, and there is nothing wrong for women to marry women in the United States of America. Every state had been allowed to decide this issue for its inhabitants but peremptorily the Supreme Court now abridged that state right and declared homosexual acts legal in the entire nation. What a sad day in the history of our nation? No matter how few and minor are those of us who insist on what the Greatest Book of All Times, the Holy Bible says about marriage as between a man and a woman, don’t we have rights as well? Aren’t we supposed to be protected by the same US Constitution? Don’t our rights need be respected just as other rights are protected and our voices heard too?

The Sovereign Lord God Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and all that are in them, including those five justices of the United States Supreme Court said in Leviticus 18: 22: “Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.” In another version, He commanded thus: "Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin” (NLT). Again, He warned: “'You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination” (NASB). Here is the Divine Punishment decreed by the Lord God Almighty on homosexual acts in Leviticus 20: 13: “If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.” In the Books of Romans, the two Corinthians and Jude, including numerous scriptural references in the Book of Life, homosexual acts and lesbian behaviors and relationships were and are condemned. In the age of political correctness, homosexual acts are issues and matters that the Christian community, no matter the persecution and our diming views, will be hard to believe and embrace. Human beings and their foibles may have evolved over time, but as Hebrews 13: 8 says: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” The Holy Bible warned us in Exodus 23: 2: “Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong…” so it doesn’t matter if a large segment of the American community is in celebratory mood over that Satanic ruling from the US Supreme Court decision that homosexuality is legal in the United States. The ruling should be challenged. I don’t even think the nation is ready for same-sex marriage, until there is a referendum on the matter. It is the established press that is whipping up this feeling, because if the average American is allowed a say in this important and crucial matter, that ruling will be reversed. It is absurd and an affront on common sense for five individuals to decide the fate of over 300 million human beings in the greatest nation on earth. Those 5 Justices of the US Supreme Court will appear before their Creator one day to answer for that ruling, whether they like it or not according to 2 Corinthians 5: 10: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” The 5 Justices of the US Supreme Court have spoken BUT the Supreme Lord Jesus Christ of Heaven and Earth hasn’t spoken and He will have the FINAL SAY on this matter. To Him we appeal. This is not the end of the matter, but just only the beginning.


The Press Release reproduced below initially appeared in this column on February 3, 2014. I am reproducing it again now that Nigeria has a new apex police boss and a new president. Please let the security agencies in Nigeria do something about this man's case and at least bring a closure to his agitated family members and relatives.

Open Appeal to the Inspector General of Police and Fellow Nigerians

By Anemelu Family
Mr. Mohammed D. Abubakar
Inspector General of Police
Force Headquarters
Louis Edet House
FCT, Abuja
Ref: CB.7000/IGP.SEC/ABJ/VOL.104/556
Ref: CB.7000/IGP.SEC/ABJ/VOL.171/571
Dear Mr. Abubakar,
For almost two years now, we have followed up with deep concern the sad news of the kidnap of our brother in-law, Mr. Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Udemba, which took place on March 21, 2012 at Nkwelle Ezunaka, Anambra State. Regrettably, important-personnel inaccessibility at your exalted office, our longstanding experience of lengthy, frustrating, and unreliable bureaucratic process, coupled with apparent investigational reluctance of the Anambra State Police Command, have compelled us to make this appeal public. While family and relations are still gasping to recover from, as much as understand, this unfortunate incident that took place at Nkwelle Ezunaka area close to Onitsha, Anambra State, we are still worried that little or no attempts have been made by the Anambra State Police Command to investigate Mr. Udemba's kidnap.

Developments regarding the willingness and readiness of the Anambra State Police Command to investigate his kidnap have, for some time now, remained disturbingly controversial and suspect at best. Sir, we are still in shock that even as the name of a major person of interest in his kidnap was provided to the Nigerian Police with copies forwarded to the former Anambra State Police Commissioner, Mr. Ballah Nasarawa, neither has any arrest been made nor has any investigation situation report provided to the long-suffering family of Mr. Udemba. Sir, you would need to imagine for a moment, the level of psychological and emotional trauma to which the wife and children of Mr. Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Udemba have been subjected for almost two years now.

It is expedient to mention that at some point, letters of complaint and appeal were directly addressed and dispatched by this party to President Jonathan and Governor Obi of Anambra State. Given the gravity of this matter, those letters were registered and delivered by courier but neither a reply nor a response has come forth. Moreover, countless efforts made to reach those two important offices for help were unsuccessful and access impossible. Sir, besides the Presidency and the Governor of Anambra State, we are hereby appealing to you, in particular, and to all Nigerians, in general, to come to our assistance and possibly suggest ways to help all of us come out of this quagmire with the result of investigations on all those involved, in any way or associated with his kidnap, publicized. We firmly believe that the family of Mr. Emmanuel Udemba, along with his relations and friends, has the right to an honest, helpful and transparent investigation result from the police at this very challenging time. At this juncture, we solicit your urgent assistance and that of all well-meaning Nigerians. Sir, an entire town, family, friends and relations of Mr. Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Udemba are exceedingly troubled that despite all the reports and letters of appeal sent to the Federal Police Department and Anambra State Police Command, investigation situation feedbacks on the whereabouts of Mr. Udemba, those of his kidnappers and affiliates have remained virtually elusive or simply nonexistent as at today. We call upon you, sir, to use your good offices and constitute an independent investigation panel on the disappearance of Mr. Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Udemba as well as deeply probe the modes of operation of the Anambra State Police Command.

Mr. D.P. Yakadi (Anambra State Deputy Commissioner of Police) has been severally mentioned as the overseer of the office that investigates kidnap cases in Anambra state. From our understanding, Mr. Yakadi has been in Anambra state since 2006. Apparently, he was also present in Anambra state throughout the period when Mr. Ballah Nassarawa was the Commissioner of Police in the state. We strongly believe that a man of his caliber and clout should be able to know as well as provide Nigerians with useful information regarding the result of police investigation on the kidnap of Mr. Udemba, its attendant permutations and why the police decided to ignore or inordinately delay investigations in Mr. Udemba's own case. While we do appreciate some positive changes that have taken place in the Police Force as evident in many states and in some of the states around Anambra State, at the same time we restate our unwavering conviction that an entire town, family and relations of Mr. Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Udemba, both as loyal citizens of Nigeria and human beings with inalienable rights, deserve a meaningful closure to this ugly incident. Sir, with this heartfelt appeal, we passionately plead for your very considerate and expeditious intervention. On behalf of already-traumatized and agonizing wife and children of Mr. Emmanuel C. Udemba, we also plead with all Nigerians of goodwill to urge the office of the Anambra State Commissioner of Police (past and present) and the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mr. D.P. Yakadi, to honestly investigate the kidnap of Mr. Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Udemba, furnish Nigerians and the world with the result of their investigations. Most of all, may they explain to Nigerians why the police have not made any arrests despite their receipt of the name of a major person of interest and knowledge of another uniquely implicating evidence in this crime over a year ago. We would very gratefully appreciate it if you could give this heartfelt appeal every favorable attention it deserves.

Signed for Anemelu Family,

Mr. Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Udemba is believed to be a native of Nnokwa in Idemili South Local Government area, Anambra State, Nigeria. Before his kidnap, Mr. Udemba was said to be a resident of Federal Housing at 3-3, Onitsha. Mr. Udemba, a plywood dealer/businessman was kidnapped since March 21, 2012 at Nkwelle-Ezunaka, Anambra state, Nigeria. This happened on his way to his plywood business in the late hours of the morning. Because of threat to his life by his kidnappers over a ransom, his family, with the help of relations, painfully paid a ransom of 3.5 million, Nigerian naira, to his captors so as to secure his release as they promised. However, that release never came through and with the kidnap victim still missing. So many reports and appeals were said to have been made to the Nigerian police, from the year 2012 and beyond, but for some unknown reasons, the police in Anambra state, where this incident took place, did not investigate his kidnap case satisfactorily. Law enforcement agents known as the SSS in Anambra state began investigations, found the cellphone of kidnap on someone's hand, but stopped on the way without giving any good reasons to the kidnap victim's family on why they stopped a criminal investigation of that nature.

The family of Mr. Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Udemba would need your assistance at this difficult time. Please kindly help them to prevail on President Buhari and the new Governor of Anambra state, Chief Willie Obiano (where this kidnap incident took place), with passionate pleadings and appeals, to seriously and directly order urgent investigations into the peculiar kidnap case of Mr. Emmanuel Udemba. Not only that, his wife and eight children have been agonizing for almost three years now without knowing their loved one's whereabouts and present conditions. In addition, their lives and properties have been under threats coupled with psychological traumas already inflicted on them. A situation where a mother and her eight children would be left to agonize for almost three years now, without anyone caring to help them, has indeed become a humanitarian issue. Please for more details on the appeals, publicly made in this regard, kindly Google the name: Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Udemba or visit https: . If you have any tips for law enforcement agents, please contact the columnist. Thank You.


First, I want to thank God Almighty through His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ for His spiritual gifts in your life. Your latest article titled, "Why President Jonathan Lost the 2015 Presidential Election' is a must read for all Nigerian citizens who love and want our beloved nation to prosper and become stable politically. I really hope there is a way you could send the information in the concluding part of the article to President Buhari . Will he listen; I really want him to succeed for the good of Nigeria. That said, please can you say something about Bayelsa state. Looking forward to your response. Thanks. Your brother in Christ----Etekpe Wilson, Nigeria.
