One might ask why a nation like Nigeria that has a world class Prophet like T.B Joshua and other great Men of God known worldwide continue to experience bombings and killings of all sort, perpetrated by some extremist group in their country?, Why can’t God use T.B Joshua to end the crisis in his own land just as HE has been using the Prophet to do greater things in the life of many and other nations all over the world?
But let us not be quick to forget that since the start of the present crisis in Nigeria, T.B Joshua has remained persistent in exposing the mind of God concerning the situation of terror presently facing the nation. Prophet T.B Joshua has continued to advice the nation on how to handle the Boko-Haram crisis for peace to return to the land but, unfortunately, those in the higher authorities in the country, neither take him, his advices nor his prophetic declaration serious; all of his words where ignored and swept under the carpet.
It was in Prophet Elisha’s reign that there was a great famine in Samaria, where Parents were using their Sons for meal to survive and yet, Elisha could not do anything about it until the king recognized the God of Elisha (2King6). When a nation ignores Gods voice, such nation will keep on prolonging her crisis and keep fighting the wrong battle that may even consume them at the end. In a battle of warfare everyone has his or her own role to play, the Prophet can’t do what is meant for the Soldier likewise, the Soldier cant do what is meant for the Prophet. The Crisis in Nigeria is a battle between light and darkness, you cannot fight darkness with darkness, you need light to fight darkness and this is why the nation needs to seek counsel from the Prophet to handle their present situation.
The killing and arrest of key leaders of the Boko-Haram sect and other extremist group will not guarantee the end of terrorism and militancy in Nigeria; only peaceful negotiation and Gods intervention can stop this act of terror in Nigeria. Let the leaders be united, throw sentiment away and seek for counsel from the Prophet; never say we are in a modern world and Prophets are not needed. The God who raised a Prophet like T.B Joshua in this modern age has reasons for doing so; and the Prophet has shown his genuine willingness to help the nation.
The nation should take note that most of those International nations fighting terrorists and advocating for no negotiation with terrorists; are not fighting this extremist group in their own soil, neither are they fighting them in their territory and also, the terrorist they are fighting are not their citizens but foreigners. But the Nigeria case is a fight between the Government and some group of citizens brainwashed to fight their people due to some unclear motives. And the Government should not close its eyes to the fact that some of the politicians and security personnel are Sympathetic to this extremist group which is also very dangerous to the territorial integrity of the nation if immediate actions are not taking to invite all parties involved to a negotiation table to end the act of terror.
The more a nation ignores God’s instructions, the more the evil plans of the devil will continue to strive in that Land. First get the terrorist to drop their arms through a peaceful negotiation and God will take control of the rest. God loves sinners but hates sin; that is, He loves thieves, killers, homosexuals, kidnappers and terrorists but hates the spirit behind their misconduct. The battle is not a fight against flesh and blood but evil spirits therefore; our neighbors are not the enemies but evil spirit.
