Nigeria our great nation, our home land, the land of peace and strength in diversity, the land with the prophetic mandate to evangelize the world is at the verge of breaking.
We cannot afford to stay at ease, no longer is it okay to keep silent and watch. The church must arise and take her place. She must sit at the mountain of wailing, she must match on the streets of righteousness and never cease to labour in travail until Nigeria is healed.
For our land is sick! Sick with the disease of corruption and greed, sick from the poison of injustice and inequality, sick from the mismanagement of wicked hearts, sick from the violation of violent minds. Nigeria is sick and at the verge of death and we must arise and redeem her fast.
The mandate of God upon this nation is too grave to be slaughtered on the alter of division. God’s investment in Nigeria cannot be traded for the filthy gains of ethnic bigotry. We cannot sit down and watch the men without vision tear this nation to pieces, we must arise.
We must arise and take our stand in this nation. We must declare where our interest lie. We must make it known that we are driven beyond the present current of tribal differences. We must show that we are not going to dine at the table of greedy taste for corrupt power. We must let all know that we have one passion, one focus, one goal, to see Christ reign in Nigeria.
Yes, to see his kingdom prevail in all sectors of this nation. We must not compromise this stand, for to do otherwise is death to the nation or any nation yet to arise.
For what plagues Nigeria is beyond the distribution of the control of power, it is beyond the distribution of resource control and benefits, it is beyond the manifest injustices and political intimidation.
What plagues Nigeria is the ill of the human nature, that self that has fueled the wickedness and hardships that is tearing Nigeria apart.
Who says that it is restructuring that is the solution? Who says that Biafra would end the marginalization of man by man? No it cannot, because hidden within it, is the yeast of greed and lust for power that is soon to leaven the lump and make it unpalatable.
Therefore the church must rise to this occasion and shine the light. The church must travail for the son of righteousness empowered with wisdom of the Holy Ghost to arise. The church must sever from strange relationships and unite to enthrone that son that would bring the reign of righteousness, justice, peace, equality and healing to Nigeria and other nations of the world.
Where the righteous rule, the nation is prosperous. Where the kingdom of Christ is established, the nation is peaceful. No peace for the nation where the wicked is in power, no matter how pure his intentions, his nature remains a reproach to the nation.
So I say to the church, arise! Nigeria is crying for the righteous Leadership only the church can provide. Selah!
