The world is in perilous times as Apostle Paul presciently prophesied in 2 Timothy 3: 1-5: “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.”
These twenty characteristics of the Last Days have already started in the current Church Age. It wasn’t as if these satanic attributes are new, because they have been part and parcel of the human race from the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, but will become accentuated as we move to the close of the Age. The corollaries of these demonic attributes in the lives of men and women in the world are social dislocations and economic crises.
The True Lord God Almighty has provided enough for the needs of all His creation, but there are not enough for the greed of every human and that is why there are many unemployed and jobless souls and those hurting in the world today. I receive tons of email and snail mail, including phone calls from all over the world on daily basis; from Nigeria and other parts of Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, to South America, the Caribbean and of course from here in North America.
Many able and energetic young men and women around the world are unable to find jobs and employment. They have done all that are required of them, including good education and staying out of trouble, yet their national leaders have failed them. Those that are fortunate to have jobs discover they have to kowtow and compromise in order to receive their due promotions and advance in their chosen careers. The system is so stacked against the righteous and the obedient making David to wonder in Psalm 73: 3: “For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.”
Millions of people are hurting every day. They are sick and ill. Satan and his demons have taken good health from them and the world’s hospitals and sick beds are teeming with patients suffering from diverse sicknesses and ailments. There are couples unable to bear children and have done all in their powers to sire their young ones. Millions of human beings lack focus and are unable to discover the meaning of life. The activities of Satan and his demons have been so exacerbated in life that many have given up the fight and are suffering unnecessarily from spiritual wickedness and are being held captive by satanic forces and their human agents.
Poverty is so widespread that many that are dispossessed and oppressed materially are confused with no way out. Even among Christians, retrogression and innumerable life’s reverses have been erroneously attributed to persecution that our Lord Jesus Christ referred to in Matthew 24: 9 but our Lord Jesus Christ didn’t say poverty, the inability to make ends meet, unable to pay your bills and get employed are parts of the suffering for one’s faith. After all, He assured us in the same Matthew that we should not worry about our food, clothing and shelter ( Matthew 6: 25-34) as those basic and fundamental things of life shall be taken care of by our Heavenly Father. So how could He turn around to deprive us of them, which is what poverty is all about? I received a letter from a mother of four children-daughters recently.
The daughters are all grown-ups, educated, beautiful-because I saw their photographs-are born-again Christians but none of them is married. They were not into any known sins as I could assess when I spoke to them and yet no man is forthcoming to ask for any of them in marriage. Why are the unbelieving and Christ-rejecting ladies the ones marrying the men while tongue-speaking and Holy Spirit-filled born-again ladies fill our churches unable to find husbands?
I know a lady medical doctor who had it all –good and thriving medical career, beautiful, I mean she has the total package as we say-a redeemed Holy Spirit-filled child of the Living God and yet unable to find a husband. She had prayed and prayed with her pastor to the extent of frustration and was even “blackmailed” as not having enough faith or committing hidden sin thus becoming victimized by the same people who should be helping her. She was even ludicrously told that her inability to find a husband was part of her persecution as a child of the Most High God. Incredible! How can a loving God punish her own daughter with single life? No wonder, the Lord God Almighty observed in Hosea 4: 6:
“My people-not unbelievers, but born-again Christians- are destroyed from lack of knowledge.” Folks, it is knowledge that we need in the Household of the Living God.
Why are scores sick and ill when the True Lord God Almighty told us in Exodus 23: 25 that we should “Worship the Lord your God and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you?” Why are some women barren and some couples are unable to have children when the True Lord God Almighty promised us in Exodus 23:26a that “…and none will miscarry or be barren in your land?”
As noted, I receive tons of email, snail mail and telephone calls every day from around the world of people suffering from diverse problems and afflictions which our Lord Jesus Christ is ready and willing to solve through the Mighty Name of the King of kings, Lord of lords and the Power in His Precious Blood, if only we allow Him, because He admonished us in Matthew 11: 28-29: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.…” One of the most heart-wrenching email I received most recently is reproduced below:- “Many greetings Dr. Fayemiwo (intimate and personal information removed),…For a long time now, I have been an ardent follower of your many write-ups as published on Nigeria World, an online media, eagerly looking forward to your next articles. The accuracy of your prophecies have been amazing, and I find your teachings and ministrations a rich source of blessing which can only come from God Almighty.
I was particularly intrigued by your article in which you had stated that if President Jonathan wins the elections in Nigeria, then let it be known that you are not called by the Lord God Almighty. That was a powerful write-up. I have no doubt that you are an anointed prophet of the Lord God Almighty. I have just read your recent article on David Cameron and Ed Miliband on the coming British elections. After reading it, I am somehow strangely led to write this note to you, on a totally unrelated issue- a passionate request to pray for me and my family and to seek the face of God for us particularly concerning my .… (personal information removed).

I apologize for the long mail, and I look forward to hearing from you soon, by email or by phone. Thank you for your time and may the Lord continue to use you to spread the power of His word. God bless.”
I couldn’t sleep the night I received this heart-wrenching email. The Holy Spirit instructed me to travel out of the United States to meet with the writer and He would use me to heal the person on the sick bed. I contacted the writer and arrangements were made; air tickets were purchased and accommodation arranged for me to fly to the country within three days. My initial plans for the weekend were temporarily put on hold and since I didn’t need a visa to enter the country in question, we went and spent five days and the Holy Spirit took control and the Glory for the healing went to the True Lord God Almighty.
In the months and years ahead, I will be sharing the Good News of the healing power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but know this, when the Lord Jesus Christ said in Mark 16: 17-18: “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well,” those are not idle words. The Lord God Almighty Who gave the gift of prophecy to His own through the Holy Spirit is the same who can heal, save souls, change situations and circumstances, cure bareness and poverty, set demonic captives free and provide jobs and employment and give you promotion, give you your wife and husband in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
Reader’s Reactions & Letters This Week
Sir, please do not be bothered about whatever anyone says concerning your prediction of the UK election. Your article was a befitting and appropriate response which should enlighten the ignoramus amongst them. I urge you to remain focused sir----Mr. Sharafa Olaitan, Lagos, Nigeria
Good morning sir! How is the ministry, hope the Lord is good and will ever be good to his words? I was reading through your article which I saw this morning and I really would want to say here that I believed the Good Lord spoke His words through you. The case of Jonah and how it repented of the Lord cannot be over emphasized.
I have been following all what you mentioned in your article and I want to say firmly here to you sir that God is not a man that he should lie. If he says a thing and peradventure it repented of the Lord to hold sway what he wanted to do. We are only his vessels of information to the world.
Lastly sir, keep the flag of the Most High God flying and may his grace continue to fill you and the ministry in Jesus name. Amen. ---Mr. Temitope Warri, Nigeria.
God's ways are not our ways, so when the people are crying for achange and want God to intervene, God may handover His judgment bypassing information to any of His servants. The case in point was what happened between the people of Nineveh and the Prophet Jonah. Ifwe should follow the case of what had happened during the UK election,we must observe that Mr. Cameron had adopted a lot of changes thatmade it possible for the people to re-elect him. We could see alsofrom the case of Jonah that if the people of Nineveh had not repented,God's first judgment on the land would have been carried out. ---Pastor Vincent AjaAuthor: Basic Principles.Missionary/ Speaker.URIAH MISSIONS:Outreach Ministries. 36/37 C. to C. Plaza Nkpokiti Road Enugu.Enugu State, Nigeria.
Greetings Sir, Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ! Lately I have been asking God to reveal to me why he will change his mind concerning a word of His He speaks through his prophet. And God answered me in a very amazing way. Hear this: God took me to the book of Jonah. Chapter 3 verse 4 reads: 'Jonah started through the city and after walking a whole day, he proclaimed, ''in forty days Nineveh will be destroyed!'' The Lord had told him to speak those words of prophecy. But see Jonah 3:5. The people of Nineveh believed God's message, repented and took practical steps to seek God's mercy. Amazingly, the fast the king ordered even included their livestock! In verse nine of chapter four of Jonah, they even postulated that God could change His mind!
Then comes verse ten. The crucial verse reads: 'God saw what they did; He saw that they had given up their wicked behavior. So he changed His mind and did not punish them as He had said He would.” The rationale? God can decide to dispense his mercy if he sees repentance and a change of heart in a person or a people. This is what God taught me just today! And i am grateful to Him! So sir, do not let anyone put you down because God decided to change His mind concerning His word that he tells you to proclaim. One reason He can change His mind is because His mercies endure! God bless you! ---Mr. Anietie James Okuku, Portharcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.
Dear Sir,I have been following your prophesy on Nigeriaworld.com and I must confess, I am always surprise how accurate and good your prophesy is, all your Nigeria election prophecies came to pass.Your prophecy on the British election is also accurate because Prime Minister Cameron himself was surprised about the outcome of the election. Our God is merciful and he does as he wants. Sir, who are we to question him, please continue the good work you are doing and God be with you, Amen.Kind Regards---Mr.
Alexander Adesola Adegbie Adegunola, Vienna, Republic of Austria.
Shalom Sir. Since 2013 I have being following your prophecies, and honestly speaking, I have always watch them come to pass. In fact that of GEJ was very interesting in that you even wrote to him to tell him that he would not be re- elected: this signifies you were too sure of the message you received from God. I followed the matter to the end Sir. I thank God for giving us gifts like you (prophet) at this end time Sir. I was a little disturbed when David Cameroon won and Milliband was defeated. I thought to myself, O I just hope people will not think Dr Moshood did not hear from God o!
However, my spirit was lifted when I read of your response and admittance of missing it. I thought to myself this is a man of God that admits it is only God that knows it all. God is the Sovereign God and He does as He pleases, He has the final say Sir. I just thought it good to write and encourage you Sir. We believe you are of God and sent by God.
May God continue to strengthen you in His power and Anointing in Jesus' Name, Amen.
As always, thank you for your patience and understanding. Shalom Sir Yours in Christ Jesus---Mrs. Musa Christiana Abuja, Nigeria.
Dear Dr. Fayemiwo, Greetings to you in Jesus' name. I would like to encourage you to be focused on the work the Lord God has called you to do. I read your recent article in nigeriaworld.com . You are a true man of God The Good Lord still have a lot of good plans for you. Please stop defending yourself, let God fight for you. The Devil is not going to rest, but seeking whom to discourage, and devour. God allowed some situations to happen to prove that we are human, but God is sovereign. Above all, to prove that He is worthy to receive all the glory and honor and power. Be encouraged, stay focused and remain blessed sir. Bye for now. ---Pastor Isaiah Adio Philadelphia, United States of America. www.rccgjesus.org
Don’t ever get distracted by negative comments or doubters but remain focused on the Lord Jesus Christ for greater and mighty revelations--- Abigail Adeyemi, Lagos, Nigeria.
The Lord God Almighty has been confirming His Words---Pastor Arinze Alinnor, Lagos, Nigeria.
Hello Dr. Fayemiwo. This is my second email to you in less than a month, but I want to urge you to remain focus on God Almighty for mighty, far more accurate, and many more shocking revelations that will shock those doubting your call. You missed it because you are man and not God Almighty. I am convinced that you are called by His grace to hear from God through Jesus Christ His son to reveal deep things of the spirit to people of this generation. However, Jehovah allowed you to miss that on Britain elections for His own glory.
He allowed things to happen for many reasons but definitely not to put his faithful servants like you to shame or ridicule. In case you don't know, some ignorant people may start seeing you as the mighty one instead God that called you if that prophecy about Britain's P.M came to past. Watch out sir, that one on British PM election was not an accident but by God divine plan. He will reveal greater and mighty things to you in days to come, and many more will testify that truly you are called by the Only One of Israel. Don't ever get distracted and be encouraged. Your brother-in-Christ ---Kehinde Akolade Maryland, United States of America.
OUR OWN WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, WOLE SOYINKA NEEDS PRAYERS
In every generation, the Lord God Almighty blesses His people with men and women of rare faculties and highly cerebral minds. Fresh thinkers and geniuses are rare to come by and Nigeria has been blessed in this generation with one of them. Prof Oluwole Akinwande Babatunde Soyinka is a rare breed and one of the most fertile minds Nigeria has ever produced. Although he once referred to his generation as the “wasted generation,” but Soyinka is not wasted. He enriched our world and his achievements are too many to be chronicled here in a column. But when all is said and done, he’s a lesser mortal and will go like the rest of us. Nigerians and African all over the world should pray for our own William Shakespeare to still hang around with us for a while.
Of course, we will all bow out of this temporary earthly existence when our individual clock ticks and we shall wave goodbye and exit to the Other World just as the real William Shakespeare aptly noted in As You Like It, Act II, Scene VII: “All the world's a stage,And all the men and women merely players.They have their exits and their entrances,And one man in his time plays many parts,His acts being seven age…” The contribution of Prof Soynka to Nigeria, Africa and indeed the Black Race cannot be quantified. He has done the Black Man proud and everywhere his name is mentioned, he commands respect and adoration, but again like other humans, he will leave us one day. Let’s pray fervently for this great man of Africa and the pride of the Black Race that he stays with us for some years to come.
IF OLUWAROTIMI AKEREDOLU WANTS TO BECOME THE NEXT GOVERNOR OF ONDO STATE IN 2016, HE SHOULD DECLARE NOW!
I have not hidden the fact that I have prayed the True Lord God Almighty to grant my request to have one of my kinsmen from the historic town of Owo to become the next governor of Ondo State. I am not parochial. That is my prayer to the Lord and the reasons are not far-fetched. The town of Owo has contributed immensely to the political evolution of Yoruba Land among few towns in the Yoruba race that can be described as such. The town has also suffered more than any Yoruba town in the divisive political differences in the entire Yoruba Land. But more crucially, the best governor in the Old Ondo State and the first democratically-elected governor of the state was produced by the historic town of Owo. We all know him: the Lion of Owo, Chief Michael Adekunle Ajasin of Nigeria. Even his political opponents will concede that Papa Ajasin was the best governor that has ever presided over Ondo State. With such enviable record, it is not surprising that the next helmsman of Ondo State should come from Owo.
As I have noted in this column few weeks ago, the Lord God Almighty has given us the power to decree on who becomes the next governor of my state. I have received some name suggestions and after scrutinizing the names, the man who tried it last time and nearly made it is now positioned to become the next governor of Ondo State. I am talking about Mr. Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN and the defunct ACN gubernatorial candidate in 2011. If he hasn’t made up his mind yet, he should let us know, but if he wants to become the governor in 2016, he should declare it now.
There are some things he has to do between now and the time of electioneering campaign. He should make up his mind now as James 1: 5-8: “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.”
The former president of the Nigerian Bar Association is weighing his options and hasn’t decided yet, but I am told to tell him he should make up his mind fast, because the Good Lord Almighty doesn’t give political leadership to unstable and prodded people. You know it yourself that you and I have never met one-on-one in life, but this is the message of the Most High for you as you prevaricate and are still undecided even though many people have been calling on you to go for the job again. But as I have indicated above, there are certain things the Good Lord says we should tell you to do first before you declare your interest in the plum job then you will win.
NEXT WEEK: Former Governor Abubakar Audu is planning to contest the Kogi Governorship Election in 2016. Will he win? We will tell him what the Holy Spirit says next week.
