We bring you greetings in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
We thank God that the leadership of the Church sees the need for us to fast and pray at this time. We must maximize this God given opportunity by praying aright.
To be effective in our intercession, let me offer some suggestions.
a) UNDERSTANDING THE ISSUES:
Mankind has entered the final phase of prophetic activities that would end this age and ultimately decide the destiny of nations.
From the beginning of creation, God ordained that the three sons of Noah that covenanted with Him to restart a new order after the flood would play a role in the salvation of mankind and restoration of God’s plan.
The Shemites (Israel) were called to lay the foundations and provide the patterns.
Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;
Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen (Rom.9:4).
The Japhetities (Europeans) were called to play an Evangelical role in the afternoon of the Church Age to publish the good news of Salvation to the Nations. That has explained the emergence of nations like Uk, USA and others that have been strong missionary nations.
The Hamites (Africans) are called to finish the work and perfect the Bride of Christ. It has always been clear through prophecy and the writings of the Fathers that this call on Africa must be championed by Nigeria. This assignment from heaven is Nigeria’s redemptive calling and purpose.
Because of this call on the nation, Nigeria will be the stage for the conflict of thrones. All anti-Christ forces galvanized by Islam will desire to be established in Nigeria to prevent the nation from fulfilling this mandate.
To have a holistic picture, we must see events unfolding in our nation from the lens of this broader unfolding end-time agenda of God.
With the passing of Billy Graham, the signpost of the Evangelical period of the Gospel dispensation, the Lord is saying clearly that the Season of Africa has fully come and Nigeria must now lead Africa’s liberation.
Nigeria is presently travailing to give birth to the purposes of God and the greatest need of the nation now is for skillful midwives that will deliver the seed of God without choking the precious seed.
