Expression of Gratitude:
2 Chronicles 15: 3 & 5 "For a long time Israel was without the TRUE GOD and without a TEACHING PRIEST, and without LAW...In those times there was no peace to him who went out or to him who came in, for great disturbances afflicted all the inhabitants of the lands."
Children of God and all men of goodwill who have come to celebrate/commemorate the one year anniversary of the bestowment of the honour/title "Anapi Mangaji Allah" (The Prophet of the Most High God) on me by eminent traditional rulers from the northern part Nigeria, it is a thing of joy that God in His infinite mercy remembered our generation and blessed us with an Anointed Prophet. I rejoice also because my prophetic calling is neither man-made nor my decision, but rather a divine calling from the Most High God. Thus, "Even if I do bear witness to myself, my testimony is true, for I know whence I have come and whither I am going...or else believe me for the sake of the works themselves" (John 8: 14 & John 14: 11). From 1967 the year of my calling till date, I can boldly state with empirical facts that I have tested God and proved the reality of what my Father Jesus said in John 14:14, "If you ask anything in my name, I will do it.” There is absolutely no miracle that I have not done through the power and name of our Saviour Jesus Christ. These miracles include raising the dead through mere telephone call; restoring sight to the blind, making the lame walk, destroying renowned shrines and deities etc. Children of God, you have seen it all! Indeed, our God can do what no other god can do. For He said in John 14:12, "he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do...”. All He desires from us is righteousness and holiness. For it is written, "will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Ba'al, and go after other gods that you have not known, and then come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, WE ARE DELIVERED!" Indeed, God is able to do all things; he is holy; as such those who take up or call His name must be holy, for our God hates hypocrisy. May His name alone be praised!
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE TITLE "ANAPI MANGAJI ALLAH" (THE PROPHET OF THE MOST HIGH GOD)
Just as neither flesh nor blood revealed to Simon Peter that Jesus is the Son of God, so it is with this title. I have often wondered what convinced eminent traditional rulers from Kaduna, Kogi and some parts of Kano to confer an honour of this magnitude on a non-indigene of their geopolitical region? It could only be the spirit of God that moved and convinced them. This signifies that my calling as an Anointed Prophet of the Most High God is not limited to the Igbo race alone, but rather universal. God had predestined me to be His Anointed Prophet right from my mother’s womb. Being the eighth child of my father and the fourth from my mother’s womb, the Lord called me to be His Anointed Prophet in the year 1967; while I was playing football in front of my father’s house. Fittingly, it was His perfect will to appoint these wise men from the northern part of Nigeria to confirm this honour. It is also remarkable that this honour was conferred on me eleven (11) years after the Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo ably led by Eze Ohazurike and Chief S.O Mbanefo (The Adama Nri of Nri Kingdom – Kingmaker of Igbo land) conferred on me the title "Odum Ebo Igbo" (Lion of the Tribe of Igbo) in 2005. The number eleven (11) is special to me because it is my birth date here on earth. Further, this northern award came exactly eight (8) years after the Nigerian government honoured me with the title Member of the Federal Republic (MFR). My name Hezekiah is spelt with eight (8) letters.
ADVICE TO CHILDREN OF GOD & ALL MEN OF GOODWILL
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son; that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
It is God's earnest desire for us not to perish in sin, but end up in Heaven where He has prepared for us. It was for this reason that He gave up His ONLY son to atone and pay the ultimate price for our sins. Fellow heirs to the kingdom; let us not mistake or misplace the love and grace of God for us. Let us not make God regret ever making the decision for His ONLY son to die for us just as Saul made Him regret making him King over Israel in the Bible: "Sons have I reared and brought up, but they have rebelled against me" (Isaiah 1: 2). Again, “what wrong did your fathers find in me that they went far from me, and went after worthlessness, and became worthless?” (Jeremiah 2: 5). Brethren, it is a dangerous thing to despise, ignore or fail to hark to the call of God. “Because I have called and you refused to listen, have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded, and you have ignored ALL my counsel and would have none of my reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when panic strikes you, when panic strikes you like a storm, and your calamity comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; they will seek me DILIGENTLY but will not find me" (Proverbs 1: 24 - 28). Brethren, now is the time to make hay while the sun still shines. Now is the time to make peace with God for a day will come either here on earth or in hell when you will so desperately call upon God but He will treat you just as you treated Him. Do not be deceived by those who claim that there is no life after death. The dreams you have and your soul that wonders are enough to convince you that a day will come when that thing called “soul” will return to its creator to be sentenced to either eternal happiness or perpetual torture. God desires our repentance. For He said, "In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?" (John 14: 2). Brethren, we must therefore shun all acts which are inimical to God in other to inherit those rooms and mansions which His Son Jesus has gone to prepare for us. We must wash ourselves from all uncleanness for the eye of our Lord is too holy to behold iniquity. For this reason He said, "Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord" (Isaiah 1: 16 - 18). God is able to help you overcome your weakness, but first you must learn to hate evil just as David did in the Bible. David said, "I will not set before my eyes anything that is base. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cleave to me...No man who practices deceit shall dwell in my house; no man who utters lies shall continue in my presence" (Psalm 101: 3 & 7). In this vein, it is expedient for those who call themselves children of God or take up God's name on their lips to acknowledge and understand that God's standard of holiness can never be compromised. He is of purer eyes to behold iniquity. David recognized this quality of God when he said in Psalm 15, "O Lord, who shall sojourn in thy tent? Who shall dwell on thy holy hill? He who walks blamelessly, and does what is right, and speaks truth from his heart; who does not slander with his tongue, and does no evil to his friend, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbour; in whose eyes a reprobate is despised, but who honours those who fear the Lord; who swears to his own hurt and does not change; who does not put out his money at interest and does not take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved.”
May I seize this opportunity to reiterate my gratitude to the northern leaders who honoured me with this title. While thanking you for this noble gesture which was divinely approved, I would like to encourage you to strive for salvation; for this is the peak of all human achievement. May the Good Lord continue to bless you according to His perfect will in Jesus name, Amen. I also wish to thank my children Princess Chukwunazaekpere whom the traditional rulers from northern Nigeria crowned the “Sarauniya Salama” (Queen of Peace) and Princess Onyinyeomachukwu whom they also crowned the Ambassador of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). May the Good Lord continue to bless, strengthen and encourage you in this journey to Heaven in Jesus name, Amen. May I also thank all children of God who in one way or the other have been a source of encouragement to me in my Prophetic calling. May the Good Lord bless and reward you in Jesus name, Amen.
Brethren, without mincing words, let us understand that there is no iota of contradiction when Jesus said "I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me" (John 14: 6). Be ASSURED that the wicked will never go unpunished (Proverbs 11: 21) and that Jesus is coming back the second time for those who ran the good race. “And behold, I am coming soon...let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy....Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth; walk in the ways of your heart and the sight of your eyes. But know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment" (Revelation 22: 7 & 11, Ecclesiastes 11: 9). Never mind those who for the gains and riches of this world opted to sell their souls to the devil. "Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death...He who augments his wealth by interest and increase gathers it for him who is kind to the poor" (Proverbs 11: 4 & Proverbs 28: 8). Finally Brethren, let us not relent in doing good, for in due season, our works will be rewarded. “But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded" (2 Chronicles 15: 7).
May the Living God prove to the whole world that Jesus Christ is both Lord and Saviour and He is His begotten Son and that salvation is ONLY through him (Jesus Christ).
Thank you for listening.
