Rev 5:9-10 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou were slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation and hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth …APOSTOLIC SHARPSIGHT & NDIGBO FUTURE PT3 … Prophetic destinies can be extremely challenging whether it is an individual, family or nation that is in focus. In His redemption plan God pays great attention to languages, tribal nations and nation states. Acephalous and egalitarian, the Igbo tribal nation stood out in the colonial era as an African community that was difficult to enslave. If anything the albatross hanging around the Igbo neck would be its untapped and misdirected
leadership potentials. Looking from the apostolic platform and the prophetic x-ray table it is unlikely that the Igbo nation will ever really find its feet until it accepts the steward leadership model of Jesus Christ to serve as the trail blazer of the African heritage. As a people the Igbos have continuously been buffeted by satanic intrigues with devastating consequences. Demonic hordes have thrown everything possible in the path of the Igbo star to block the revelation of purpose. It can be frustrating when success becomes a burden and this is one of the things that plagues the Igbos wherever they go. Starting from scratch with next to nothing the Igbo is designed to survive the harshest of climes and prosper. No sooner than things begin to look up and the land and its inhabitants move to mark the Igbo man as a person of interest to be watched closely. Spiritual things are simple but they are also very slippery. Ernest heed must be paid to divine inspiration because they tend to slip away and it is disturbing to see that the Igbo nation is yet to consider the steward leadership of Jesus Christ as the way to go. Except the Lord build the house the contractor labors in vain. Most attempts by persons of Igbo extraction to build upon the Nigerian experience has been disastrous, with the Biafra project being the most costly of all. The question that the Igbo nation needs to answer is whether or not Biafra was ever the will of God. There is a spiritual riddle that the Igbo nation needs to decode urgently to get things right. The staff did not break and the Rock did not crack. Moses knew the ways of God and Israel saw His acts yet he did not make it into the Promised Land. A nation that wishes to dedicate itself to God must understand that Gods ways and thoughts are way above that of humankind! It’s bad enough when God allows a nation or city that works against His will to be destroyed but it gets worse when someone decides to rebuild it. Jericho was in the scriptures reported to be an accursed place and it took divine assistance for Joshua to defeat and destroy it. On divine instructions Jericho was levelled and one stone was not permitted to rest on another as a memorial that Jericho never existed with favor before the Lord. To prevent project Jericho ever rising again a spiritual price was put on its ruins. Whoever would rebuild Jericho would do so at the spiritual cost of all his children as the foundation would have to be laid on the sacrifice of the eldest and the program would be concluded with the death of the youngest! You would think that such a price would be a deterrent but Satan has a way of raising his own disciples. It was under the reign of King Ahab that a man aptly named Hiel a Bethelite decided to rebuild Jericho and went ahead to sacrifice his eldest son Abiram for the foundation and worked his way till Segub his youngest son was sacrificed to erect the gates of the accursed city. We must not forget that spiritual things are very slippery as all it took to disqualify Moses from the Promised Land was a double tap on a rock! Some things that we esteem lightly mean a lot to God and the things we often elevate mean nothing to Him. The Igbo nation has to enquire well concerning the Biafra project and its revival because experience is not always a good teacher. Psalm 9:17 says that the wicked shall be turned to hell and every nation that forgets God. One thing however that I am sure of is that the Igbo are a unique people with a prophetic destiny in Christ. If they get it right Africa will be blessed but should they make a wrong choice yet again …. Hmmn.
