Igbo Nation (hebrews) Versus Biafra (part 2)
In Part 1, Igbo Nation (Hebrews) Versus Biafra (Part 1) (thenigerianvoice.com), I examined the meaning of Hebrew, and what made Igbo nation a Hebrew nation. The LORD revealed this to me in 2014 in a Library in New York City one evening at 6pm, when I bent my head to pray for the evening. I know I wrote about this in an article I published in 2014: Nigeriaworld Feature Article - The restoration of Igbo-Jewish origin: What needs to be done.
After the revelation, He started giving me series of revelations concerning my people. One of the revelations is the proper pronouncement of Igbo as Ebo, which He assured me means Hebrew. Research showed where Igbo slaves were advertised as HEEBOES.
So, we have HEEBOES further shortened as EBOS, which means HEBREWS.
That being said, Let’s look at some things that differentiate Igbos (Ebos-Hebrews) from Biafra.
When the LORD entered covenant with our fathers at the foot of Mount Sinai during their Exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land, the terms of the covenant were the things that bound Israel as His Bride/Wife. It was a marriage covenant. In Jewish tradition, marriage between a man and the woman takes place under a Canopy. So, the Canopy of the Glory of God covered the Mountain where the LORD entered the covenant of Ownership with the nation of Israel. As the marriage covenant was ratified by the blood of the animal which Moses sacrificed at that foot of the Mountain, he sprinkled half of the blood on the people of Israel when they said: “WE DO” to God’s Holy commands and laws,
And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD (Exodus 1:8).
… then he sprinkled half of the blood on the laws, statutes and ordinances that the LORD gave them, which Moses wrote down in a book (Torah) as the conditions for the marriage covenant. Then the LORD invited the 70 Elders of Israel, the High Priest (Aaron and his sons) and Moses right under the Canopy to finalize the covenant. There they saw the LORD and ate covenant meals before Him:
Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink (Exodus 24:9-11 (KJV)
Breaking these commandments, laws, statutes and ordinances of the LORD would result to divorce between the LORD (YHWH) and the Nation of Israel.
Let’s examine some of the laws that bound Israel in marriage covenant with YHWH:
Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee: But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves: For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice; And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods. Thou shalt make thee no molten gods (Exodus 34:12-17 (KJV).
Based on these terms, we see that Biafra is not crossing over with the LORD God of Israel into the Covenant, because they have their own covenant, which we will discuss shortly.
As I mentioned earlier, the entire laws and statutes of the LORD for Israel which was first rectified by the blood of the animal without blemish at the foot of Mount Sinai, was once and all rectified for all humanity by the Blood of Jesus Christ, as the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the whole world. The LORD said it through His Prophets of Old concerning the new covenant:
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever (Jeremiah 31:31-36 (KJV)
So, this new covenant is fulfilled in Christ. His Blood is the acceptable Blood without blemish for the restoration of Israel as the LORD’s Bride, A Holy Nation and for the restoration of God’s Garden on Earth again. Ebos, as a Hebrew nation are the LORD’s covenant Bride, who will welcome the LORD Jesus back to Earth and host Him. Then the Gentile believers will join us as one with Him.
Biafra does not believe in the LORD Jesus Christ. In fact, they call Him the god of the white people. So, He is not their Redeemer. The Blood of Jesus avails nothing for Biafrans, because they rejected Him. Our Land is not a Biafra land, but Ebo/Hebrew Land.
When Joshua was about to die after leading Israel through military conquests of the Amorite nations and inheriting those nations; he asked the people to choose who to serve.
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD (Joshua 24:15 (KJV)
God called our fore-father Abraham away from his people, his kinsmen and their gods and asked him to follow Him to the place He would show him. In obedience, he crossed over to God from the gods of his people to God that created Heaven and Earth, to YHWH. There is always a separation between those who serve the gods that are not God of Israel, and the heathen gods. Cain who found Babylon, after killing his brother and ran from the Presence of God, went and found a City he called Enoch, which is the beginning of Babylon. It has always been God’s plan to wipe out all those who worship heathen gods from off the Earth with their gods and renew the face of the earth with His covenant people, hence Noah’s flood whereby only the 8people that entered the Ark with all those animals survived the deluge/the flood.
Biafra has chosen to enter covenant with heathen gods, to serve the gods that are on the other side of the flood, the gods of Egypt and Amorite nations, which the LORD God of Israel abhors. They refused the LORD’s covenant with Israel to never mention or bow down to these heathen gods.
Biafra is a heathen nation. I listened to few of the broadcasts of Nnamdi Kanu on Biafra, he explained that Igbos came from Sungod, and that they are children of the light. That’s why they have the image of Sun on their flag. Remember that one of the terms of God’s marriage covenant with House of Israel is that they shall not make for themselves any molten image, or worship the host of Heaven: stars, moon, sun….the gods of Egypt, Amorite nations, or the other side of the flood.
We see in Amos where God expressed His anger against His people for worshiping what is today called” the star of David (but it’s the star of Moloch, the heathen god). That, is on the flag of the nation of “Israel” (they are not the true Israel), today:
But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore, will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts (Amos 5:26-27 (KJV)
This heathen god (Molech or Moloch) with this symbol of six-pointed star demanded sacrifices of innocent children. God repeatedly warned His people never to let their sons or daughters pass through the fires of Molech, because this was one of the reasons the Promised Land evicted their inhabitants,
And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD (Leviticus 18:21 (KJV)
There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee (Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)
But both some Kings and some people of Judah committed this abomination by sacrificing their children into the fires of Molech: Manasseh King of Judah (2 Kings 21:6), King Ahaz (2 Kings 16:3) and most of them sacrificed their children to this Molech, the god with the symbol of the 6 pointed star.
Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood ( Psalm 106:37-38).
This is as a result of the worship of Heavenly body (The Star of Moloch, presently star of David)). I see this same pointed star on the flags most of Igbo people who identify themselves as Israel, carry. This is ignorance because they don’t understand the full meaning of it. The LORD specifically warned against the worship of these Heavenly bodies the sun, moon, stars:
Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female, The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air, The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth: And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven (Deuteronomy 4:15-19).
In the days of our fathers, the LORD God greatly punished them for worshipping these heavenly bodies (sun, moon, stars):
At that time, saith the LORD, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves: And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth. And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the LORD of hosts (Jeremiah 8:1-3 (KJV)
And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense unto all the host of heaven, and have poured out drink offerings unto other gods (Jeremiah 19:13 (KJV)
Remember that the host of Heaven are sun, moon, stars.
TOPHET …was a location in Jerusalem where child sacrifices were made for Molech, the star god.
And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart (Jeremiah 7:31).
The LORD God of Israel also said concerning the Heavenly bodies (sun, moon, stars) and their worshippers in this end time:
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously (Isaiah 24:21-23 (KJV).
Someone mentioned to me of the revival of many cultural gods in Igboland today: Thunder and Lightning (Kamanu); Amadioha, Ahiajoku, Enyi (Baal) and all of them. There is also the oath taking among my people to become members of IPOB Biafra in a Shrine of Satan (Ibini Ukpabi Shrine, in Afikpo). This is the core thing that made Biafra a complete heathen nation that has no covenant with the LORD God of Israel for He warned against swearing oaths, especially to gods of the heathens. He even warned us not to mention the names of their gods, or to fear them. Putting down your money and swearing oath of life and death in Satan’s Kingdom represented by a Shrine, is handing your soul/ your life over to Satan, but we thank God for the redemption that we have in Christ. There is still hope for those who took this oath. Our hope is in Christ. We cannot serve the God of Israel and the gods of the heathen. God has already spelt their dooms and will destroy and wipe them out of the surface of the Earth:
And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land (Zechariah 13:2)
The LORD will be terrible unto them: for he will famish all the gods of the earth; and men shall worship him, every one from his place, even all the isles of the heathen (Zephaniah 2:11).
Every knee shall eventually bow only to Him through the LORD Jesus Christ.
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might (Deuteronomy 6:4-5 (KJV).
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:10-11 (KJV)
Biafra represents the wounded Igbo nation. Igbos are hurting as a nation because of unjust killings, the hurts and the marginalization by the Nigerian government on Igbo people. Biafra speaks of violence, hurts, pains, wounds, unhealed sores, scars. They are bleeding and acting out as a nation that bleeds. Our healing as a nation is only found in Christ by whose stripes we are healed. He was wounded for our transgressions, and bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).
God has given us a Comforter, His own Spirit to bring Comfort, help, restoration to us. Only in Christ do we have Peace because he is our Prince of peace.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6 (KJV).
All the great promises that God made through the prophets of old, are all fulfilled in Christ. Only in Him will we find our comfort and the healing of our land. God promised to give to Igbos the inheritance of nations, and that we will be the head over all the nations of the world. This can only take place in Christ, for the nation of Israel, the true Hebrews, are Igbos (Ebos). The fulfilment of all of God’s promises for Israel shall never be found in Biafra. Biafra has nothing to do with Christ. It a rebellious and heathen nation that will be wiped off along with all heathen nations by the Stone cut out of Heaven without hand as in Daniel 2:44. They are reviving the worship of those gods that caused the anger of God of Israel to fall upon our fathers, but Christ is our only hope. The only way that Igbo nation will be formed is as a Hebrew nation, a nation of holiness, a faithful City, a nation of righteousness, the Bride of Christ.
Biafra as a nation will bring great Christian persecution among the Igbos. They will burn down Churches and Bibles because they have said that they will never tolerate the mention or worship of any God except Chukwu Abiama Himself with the exclusion of the LORD Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior. I also found out that their Chukwu Abiama, Elohim is the Sungod, god of Egypt. When the House of Israel demanded for a King, God gave them King Saul after their desire because they rejected Him from being their King. When they asked for meat in the wilderness and murmured against the LORD and against Moses, the LORD gave them abundant meat and gave them leanness of soul. The LORD Jesus asked us to pray: let thine Kingdom come, and thy Will be done on earth as it is done in Heaven. Everything God does on Earth and in Heaven proceeds from Him. No one can add or subtract. In God’s mind and heart, there is no Biafra but Hebrews, Ebos. So, He is not supporting it. It does not align with God’s Kingdom principles which are centered in Christ. In Him all things consist: whether things made in Heaven or Earth. All things are of Him and in Him all things consist.
Let us call upon the LORD God of Israel and accept the LORD Jesus Christ as our only LORD and Savior because, it is written that there is no other name by which we might be saved but the Name of the LORD Jesus Christ.
