...CALLING ALL IGBOS TO FORSAKE AHIAJOKU WORSHIP AND EMBRACE OUR "CHUKWU ABIAMA" (GOD OF ABRAHAM).
Hear, O heaven, and give ear, O Earth; for the Lord hath spoken: I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib; but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider (Isaiah 1: 2, 3)
Something deeply touched my heart this afternoon as I was watching the movie of Queen Esther. She cried out to God to save her people from the evil plot of Haman. Haman plotted to wipe out the entire Jewish nation in the Persian Kingdom because of his hatred for Mordecai, who would not bow to him as the second in command. In her prayers which she prayed with tears before God, she said something that brought tears to my eyes. She confessed to God that her people sinned against Him and provoked Him to anger and so, He cast them out of the land that flowed with milk and honey, which He gave to their fore-fathers as an inheritance forever. However, in this strange land where they dwelt at this time because of their sins, she pleaded with God not to let their enemies to wipe them out, but to spare their lives. This prayer moved me so much that I began to cry out to God on behalf of Igbos (Igbo-Jews).
For some months now, the Lord God of Abraham, the Most High God, has been giving me some details concerning the Igbos, whom He assured me are part of the Jewish nation (His Priestly nation), and the prophetic destiny of Igbos as His firstborn. There is however, something I continue to perceive strongly in the spirit to the point that it is almost physical: the stronghold of Ahiajoku spirit over the IGBO people.
As I pointed out in my first article titled: The Restoration of Igbo-Jews to their Jewish origin: What needs to be done, Ahaijoku shrine was situated at the heart of my village. Behind it was a barren, scary- looking lonely space with about two trees. One of the trees is “Oha” tree, which springs up many fresh leaves that serve as one of the vegetables the Igbos use for soup. When they constructed the “Enyi” (the Elephant structure), which I mentioned in that article, it rested around those two trees. Evangelists often held crusades in that center, but one day, a group of people came for a crusade there and wired their electric wires around those trees and on some poles.
The elders came and violently sent them away. They also broke their electric bulb. About three weeks later, thunder struck the “oha” tree, destroying it. The elders of the land gathered and began to commune among themselves that their honor has been “nullified”; thunder struck and destroyed their god, Ahiajoku tree. My earthly father, who was alive at the time, said to them in an aggressive tone of anger that a tree should never be their god, but almighty God, God of Abraham who created Heaven and Earth, is the true and Living God. I saw my father walking homedefiantly repeating that a tree is never a god, they needed to seek the true God of the Universe. This reminds me the word of God where the Lord God said to His people through Jeremiah:
For of old time, I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands, and thou saidst, I will not transgress, when upon every high hill and under every green tree thou wanderest, playing the harlot. Yet I have planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed; how then art thou turned into the degenerate plantof a strange vine unto me? (Jeremiah 2: 20). ..enflaming yourselves with idolsunder every green tree… (Isaiah 57: 5).
The Lord God of Abraham laments that He planted His people, Israel as a delightsome and fruitful vine in the land He gave them, but they turned to a degenerate vine, as they worshipped demons under those green trees and hills, polluting themselves and the Lord’s heritage.
Ahiajoku is an enslaving demon, a degenerate plant that turns its worshippers into degenerate vines. In that previous article concerning the Igbo-Jews, I expressed that, that shrine in my village always stood before me no matter how long and hard I have sought the face of God in prayers until the Lord revealed to me how my foundation was contaminated when my people dedicated the entire children and the village to the spirit of Ahaijoku and “Enyi” when they constructed that elephant structure. It is written that we ask and don’t receive because we ask amiss (James 4:3), also the Lord God laments that his people perish for lack of knowledge. Now, having known what has been in my foundation, I began to attack the situation from a known perspective.
A couple of weeks ago, I was in a quiet time, praying for something else, I saw myself in the spirit standing in front of an IGBO Catholic Church towards the altar, but facing the entrance into the Church. My right hand was onto something. It was pushing a structure, a huge cat-like skeletal structure without head. I was pushing it from the neck bone that connects to its spinal cord. This cat-like structure was nothing but skeleton, standing over all the people that were seated in the Church with its feet spread from one end to the other. The feet were many like millipede, but resting from the beginning of each side of the pews, to the other – end to end and side to side. Everyone in the Church was seated under the canopy of this huge structure. As I was pushing it out, its feet were falling one by one, releasing the people beneath it. As I continued to push it out, people were rising up from the pews, confused and scattering. I pushed all the structure outside the Church and from above the people. Everyone came outside. There was scattering and confusion all over the atmosphere. I saw one of the Christian sisters – we used to be in one early morning daily prayer conference, always praying together. `She is not a Catholic. She rose up from a stone outside where she was seated, and announced to me her allegiance to Ahiajoku. At this point, the vision ended.
I began to wonder about the vision, which shows that the Igbo Catholic Church was under the influence of Ahiajoku. What does this Ahiajoku represent, or what kind of demonic kingdom does it represent? I began to pray to understand more of this Ahiajoku: the more I pray, the more I see it in another form, a strong bony, four- legged tall animal a Kangeroo. It towers above most of Igbo people like those who come under its umbrella or those who don’t know Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. It uses one or two of those strong legs to hold back the Igbo people that try to get to the position of prominence. When someone begins to rise to a great position in the nation or world, it uses the legs to cross the person from front and put a wedge before the person creating an ‘almost there” phenomena among the IGBOS. That is spirit of limitation that mapped out the level of life it wants the Igbos under its captivity to reach. It is associated with backwardness and hardship, life of struggle among the Igbos. For believers in Christ however, they have to battle the spiritual resistance of this spirit through the Blood of Jesus Christ, before they get to their destinies. I believe many people, besides the people of God, do appease this demon spirit in order to have some lease in life. I have never served devil before, so I may not be too accurate in some of the ways I express these except I am giving out what is being revealed to me in prayers.
Meanwhile, I decided to type the name on the internet, to my ultimate shock I saw:AHAIJOKU LECTURE SERIES, both home and abroad; AHAIJOKU CONVENTION CENTER, a multi-billion naira trade center in Imo State, Nigeria. Last week, as I sat in a Hotel in Manhattan NYC in the midnight hours, trying to study my Bible and pray, I began to doze off and I heard myself again unconsciously praying for the IGBO Catholic Churches; the leader of the Catholic Churches appeared to me, along with executive bodies of trade and commerce across the globe. Among them were the Chinese, Koreans (Asians), Arabs and some other executive traders from other countries, all dressed up in suits. Closing my eyes, I was surrounded by these executive people that represent commerce, industry and trade and, opening my eyes, I would not see them. It was very real. I began to feel that Ahiajoku, might have another name in other countries, or that there is a network or spiritual connection between this IGBO deity with these executive traders from other parts of the world. Maybe, while it is Ahiajoku in IGBO land, other countries could be worshipping the same god in another name, but they are all connected. I also began to see that this powerful four-legged animal- like spirit affects even the stability of America. There are Igbo communities in many parts of the world, and they hold their belief and festivals in these countries including, USA. Besides, until Igbo people take their center stage as a firstborn among nations, the center cannot hold. Ahiajoku kingdom is the enemy of IGBO people which limits them from possessing their possession, or entering into their spiritual inheritance with God, which is their rest.
Ahiajoku is called the god of yam. Those days at home, I remember there was always New Yam Festivals at a certain month of the year. I see over the internet that it continues all over IGBO land and among the IGBOS in diaspora, as the IGBOS feast before this god of yam, called Ahaijoku and probably making sacrifices to it during such festivals rather than observing the appointed feasts that the Lord God of Abraham appointed to them, as Jews. We will come to the appointed feasts of the Lord to both Jews and Gentiles in details probably in one of my articles and my upcoming book on the The Restoration of Igbo-Jews to their Prophetic Purpose: Igbos as firstborn.
Ahiajoku has a powerful influence even in the religious world, world of commerce, trade and Industry and probably other areas that are yet to be revealed to me. Since it represents fertility or whatever it represents in IGBO land, it might also represent such things in other nations of the world where they could be worshipping it under various names. Generally however, Ahiajoku is a demon, worshipped as god whose mission is to kill, steal, and destroy. Whatever myths that surround yam production in IGBO land both in Enugu area and Afikpo in Abia-state Nigeria as I read over the internet, yam is food created by God of Abraham, El Elyon, the possessor of Heaven and Earth and should be received with thanksgiving from the hands of Jehovah Jireh (God our Provider). THE FEAST OF YAM SHOULD RATHER BE CELEBRATED AMONG GOD APPOINTED FEASTS FOR HIS PEOPLE, WHICH INCLUDE THE FEAST OF HARVEST, AND PENTESCOST (HARVEST THANKSGIVING).
THE ENSLAVING INFLUENCE OF AHAIJOKU ON IGBO PEOPLEThe enslaving power of Ahiajoku is evident in IGBO LAND. Nigeria had its freedom through the iconic leader, Nnamdi Azikiwe in 1960. Like Martin Luther King Jr, of the USA (but before him), he had a vision of a free Nigeria from British colonial rule, and pursued this dream until Nigeria won her independence from the British government. However, even as he achieved independence for Nigeria and was the founding father of the country, yet he was only made a ceremonial President of Nigeria, between 1963-1966, while Sir Abubarkar Tafawa Belewa was made the Prime Minister of Nigeria (the executive President) from 1960 till 1966, when they were over- thrown by Aguiyi Ironsi regime. I don’t remember hearing the name of Nnamdi Azikiwe each year Nigeria celebrates her Independence, but in the United States, Martin Luther king Jr , declared and pursued his vision of the liberation of blacks and other races in USA after the manner of Nnamdi Azikiwe. He is honored every year through the celebration of his birthday as a holiday for all Americans. Also, his popular “I have a dream” speech is played before American children in schools each particular month of the year, from generation to generation. His dream never dies in America, as American children are encouraged to dream and pursue their dreams like MLK,Jr. Nnamdi Azikiwe declared his vision/dream for Nigerian independence in London few months before it was actualized in Nigeria. Yet, my generation doesn’t know anything about this Igbo iconic leader’s vision and how he affected Nigeria independence. This is caused by the limitations of Ahiajoku spirit and those deities Igbo people worship -spirits of slavery which took advantage of God’s momentary anger against His people which caused Him to send them back into slavery after settling them in the Promised Land.
Besides Zik, Aguiyi Ironsi, as an Igbo President of Nigeria did not last beyond six months in the office before both he and his officials were executed. Since then, it has been like a dream never realized that the Igbo-Jews occupy their firstborn position in the nation. God promised them that they shall be the head and not the tail: And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandment of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them (Deuteronomy 28: 13NKJV).
Ahiajoku kingdom and spirit is not any friend to the IGBOS. Establishing and holding Ahiajoku Lecture series home and abroad, Ahaijoku Festivals and Convention Center are continuous acts of rebelliousness and stiff-nakedness against the Lord God of Abraham, Who commanded them not to serve any other God besides Him. He brought our fore-fathers out of Egyptian bondage and brought them into the land that flows with milk and honey, and commanded them:
After the doings of the land of Egypt where you dwelt, shall you not do; and after the doings of the land of Canaan whither I bring you, shall you not do; neither shall you walk in their ordinances. Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the Lord your God (Leviticus 18:3-4KJV)You must not live according to the customs of the nations I am going to drive out before you. Because they did all these, I abhorred them (Leviticus 20: 23NIV)
You shall not worship their gods, nor serve them, nor do according to their deeds, but you shall utterly overthrow them and break their sacred pillars in pieces. But you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water, and I will remove sickness from your midst… (Exodus 23: 24-25).
…because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the children of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them (Ephesians 5: 7).
But they rebelled against me and would not listen to me; they did not get rid of the vile images they had set their eyes on, nor did they forsake the idols of Egypt. So I said I would pour out my wrath on them and spend my anger against them in Egypt (Ezekiel 20:8KJV).
Any wise parents do give their children words of advice as they establish them unto a new level of life. It could be marriage or sending them abroad, I could hear a parent saying to his son or the daughter who probably is heading abroad saying words like: when you get there, please remember to serve God in spirit and in truth, do not marry their daughter, don’t do what so and so people do when they get there, or you can even hear words like, when you go to stay with your daughter in law, please don’t make trouble with them, love them, serve them so they would not send you back in dishonor, but will marry you like a wife. There is always an advice as one enters into a new level of life. Those words of advice are words that will help the person succeed and flourish.
God our Heavenly Father has not left us without His words that make us succeed and flourish in any condition we find ourselves, or in any advancement in life. As He afflicted Egypt and freed His people, and also as He was driving out the Amorite nations and settling His people in their lands, He warned them not to do what those people were doing so that He would not throw them out of that land. He abhorred the Amorite nations because of their idol worship. The land therefore, would vomit His people just as it vomited its inhabitants if they would not abide by the rules He was giving them: …for the men of the land who have been before you have done all these abominations, and the land has become defiled, so that the land will not spue you out, should you defile it, as it has spewed out the nation which has been before you (Leviticus 18: 27-28).
He also promises us that if we would obey Him and walk in His statutes, He would never lay any of the diseases which He laid upon the Egyptians upon them us because He is the Lord that heals us. He will prosper whatever our hands touch and cause us to lend unto many nations, and not to borrow; to bless us above many nations of the earth because the earth is His (Deuteronomy 28). The reverse is the case if we would not follow His ordinances and statutes. This is why our fathers were thrown out of the land that flowed with milk and honey and scattered into the winds, and continued to suffer the anger of God even as they continued to serve those graven images in these strange lands.
The continuous waywardness of our fathers and of our people has only created more and more troubles and pains against us. We continue to blame the Northerners for killing 3.5million Igbos during the Nigeria Biafra civil war. It happened because; God used them as the instrument of His anger against His people. These same killings took place both in Europe and Russia when Jews in these nations were killed in Pogrom in millions. It’s the fulfillment of the word of God against the Jews that were scattered into the wind, among all the nations of the world. Let’s read it from the Bible:
Even if Moses and Samuel stood before Me, My mind would not be favorable toward this people. Cast them out of My sight, and let them go forth. And it shall be, if they say to you, “Where should we go? Then you shall tell them, ‘Thus says the Lord: Such as are for the death, to death; And such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for the captivity, to the captivity. And I will appoint over them four forms of destruction, says the Lord: the sword to slay, the dogs to drag, the birds of the heavens and the beasts of the earth to devour and destroy. I will hand them over to trouble, to all the kingdoms of the earth…You have forsaken Me, says the Lord, You have gone backward. Therefore I will stretch out My hand against you and destroy you… (Jeremiah 15: 1-6).
I don’t want to go into details here because I said much about it in my previous article: The Restoration of Igbo-Jews to their Jewish roots: What Needs to Be Done.
The continuous waywardness of Igbo-Jews only brings them into a continuous circle of destruction. The Igbos continuous blaming of the northerners concerning those deaths is only opening healed wounds, and walking in ultimate ignorance even as they are also watching the Northerners paying from the Hands of God what they did to the IGBOS. If you read Jeremiah 50, you will perfectly understand what is happening to the Northerners. If only they will understand and repent and also return to the Lord God so He will have mercy on them.
As the Lord God punishes the Northerners, He continues to plead to the IGBOs to return to Him, to Mount Zion for their inheritance with Him. He wounded us deeply with the wounds of the enemy, but He wants to heal and to
restore us to our inheritance. Like the loving Father who, after disciplining a child, begins to woo the child because, he is wounded with the wound of his child which he inflicted upon him in anger, God wants to heal and restore us. It has started!
I am appealing to the IGBOS; I simply call you IGBO-JEWS because that’s who you are. You are part of the Jewish nation, and you have to accept your identity and divine purpose for you. May you never lose your identity (Ahamefule). Myles Munroe said, before his death, that the greatest tragedy in life is not death, but living life without a purpose. Forsake Ahiajoku, Amadioha, Enyi worship and all those foreign gods which only pollute the land and create more and more troubles against IGBO people, and let us return with all our hearts to the Lord God of our fore-father, Abraham (Chukwu Abiama) and serve Him in spirit andand in truth through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died to redeem us with His Blood from the power of sin and devil. Arise to your destiny, to your prophetic purpose and possess your inheritance with God. The Lord God asks:
What iniquity have your fathers found in Me, that they are gone far from Me, and have walked after vanity, and are become vain? (Jeremiah 2: 5). Return, backsliding Israel, says the lord; I will not cause My anger to fall on you, For I am merciful…only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against the Lord your God, and have scattered your charms to alien deities under every green tree, and you have not obeyed My voice, says the Lord. Return, O backsliding children…for I am married to you. I will take you, one from a city and two from family, and I will bring you to Zion. And I will give you shepherds after My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding (Jeremiah 3: 12-14).
He also promises to give us a pleasant land, a beautiful heritage of the host of nations if we will call Him; “My Father”, and will not turn away from Him (Verse 20). We are called to serve him with all our hearts, might and strength. He is our One God, True God, and He is a Jealous God that will never share His glory with pagan gods or with anyone.
Let us align our lives, through our Lord Jesus Christ to our prophetic destinies so that we shall eat the good fruit of the land that the Lord has prepared for us, and also observe the appointed feasts of the Lord, rejoicing in Him who gave us His only begotten Son through whom we obtain all these Abraham blessings, instead of celebrating those pagan feasts, and abiding in His wrath. He is our God, our True God! Shalom, IGBO-JEWS!
I am called with a prophetic mantle on this. I am calling all IGBO-JEWS with this same vision of the restoration of the IGBO-Jews to connect with me for a Prophetic Prayer conferences: the Deliverance of IGBO race and the releasing of IGBOS to their prophetic purpose. I hope to visit Nigeria next year. If your Church or your area will help to host me for this move which is also the rebuilding of the Tabernacle of David for the fulfillment of the restoration of the IGBO-Jews, let me know. Watch out for my upcoming Book: THE RESTORATION OF IGBO-JEWS TO THEIR PROPHETIC PURPOSE: IGBO-JEWS AS FIRSTBORN NATION
