The Christian Evangelical Students Movement (CESM) represented by Rev. Reuben Ezemadu and The Remnants Fellowship, led by Mrs. Njideka Anyandike, are calling Nigerian Christians to immediate intercession for the country. According to the intercessors, a number of activities that have dire spiritual significance for the country and planned for the month of November, 2017. Details of the wake-up are as follows:

1.Fifty-six countries and nine states have indicated interest to participate in the one weeklong commemoration of FESTAC”77@40 beginning on Nov.6 in Lagos (and will end on November 11). “The objective of the festival is to seek and re-establish the culture and confidence of the black and African races" including a documentary on internalizing the spirit of FESTAC “77 (see attachment below).

2. All Africa Music Award Nov. 9-12 at Eko  with Bar Beach Waterfront Event on Friday, Nov.10, 8pm till dawn (can you imagine!).

In partnership with the AU, the 2017 All Africa Music Awards will hold in Lagos, Nigeria from November 9 - 12 with main events as follows: The Africa Music Business Roundtable (November 10), a platform for engagement on music, money and evolving business practices in the continent. Other events are the AFRIMA Music Village (November 10), an evening of non-stop open music festival of live performances from African stars and nominees, with an audience of 40,000 people, and the Main Awards Ceremony (November 12), a world-class event with live performances and television broadcast to 84 countries on 109 television stations around the world.

See www.afrima.org for more details.

3. African Culture & Design Festival is also taking place Nov. 9 - 12. This is what one of my people sent to me:

Greetings Ma.  There's a group called Interior Designers Association of Nigeria (IDAN) of which am a member of but not committed in the past 2 years.  IDAN is a member of the International Federation of Interior Architects/Design. It so happened that Nigeria won the bid to host an international exhibition which was then called This is Africa. This exhibition is not only for African participants but global attendance.  It's meant to be a design exhibition as well as a African Culture & Design Festival starting on the 9th of Nov at federal palace hotel at 4pm - 7pm. On the 10th from 9.30 - 10pm would be various activities. On the 11th there will be functions at both federal palace and Eko Hotel.  There will also be a Chinese delegation!!!! In attendance.  On the 12th will also be functions both at Eko and Federal palace Hotels. For more informative info please check http://acdf.com.ng

Last year, God revealed to us when National Museum wanted to celebrate this same event. We prayed (I'm sure others prayed too) and all the big preparations collapsed. Obasanjo had wanted the last day of the celebration to fall on his "80?" birthday. Heaven cancelled it. OBJ still tried to hoodwink the diplomatic community (?!) to join him in a cultural festival, that was yet again canceled.

Two months ago, a cultural festival which would have been part-sponsored by Lagos State stopped abruptly due to lack of finance. That was another answered prayer. Jesus is alive in Nigeria. Hallelujah!!!

On August 1, 2014 God sent us to hold a program at the National Arts Theatre. Prior to that date, God gave us a revelation of OBJ dressed in golden attire and seated upon a throne at the National Theatre. We dethroned him and raised an altar to God there. THIS MUST NOT BE REVERSED.

In 2012 God had sent us to do prophetic actions in FESTAC Town and Tulip Hotel to vacate these same spirits. We raised altars of God in and outside of the Hotel and designated junctions in FESTAC. God will revive all the righteous altars set up in His name this season and make them utter their voices against the enemy.

I'm giving these information: 1. To inform - more sharing of info will help each of us to get the full picture as well as get more hands on the job

2. To encourage us that God has not forsaken us and

3. Call for more collaboration among Christians - a Coalition of Watchmen and Market Place Apostles should be advanced aggressively now to have all Watchmen, Market Place Apostles and Church leaders working together to take over this land for Jesus. We need a critical mass to achieve this. Many older groups need fresh infusion from the new teams that the Lord is raising.

I am aware that the recent dealings with the idols in this land late last year has caused the incessant quest by satanic gatekeepers to renew their powers. It has been failing and MUST CONTINUE TO FAIL IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.

It will be marvelous if everybody will send their team members to these events to do the needful, apart from praying.

To the glory of God, Bonnke's African crusade to be held in Lagos Nov. 8-12 couldn't have come at a better time. It will encompass these idolatrous ones and crush them.  

"Shout, for the Lord has given us the land!" - Joshua 6:16

God bless you 

The Remnants

The CESM also continued, as follows:

Greetings in the blessed name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  I commend your unrelenting efforts to stand in the gap for our dear Nation - Nigeria - and to ensure that the knowledge of the glory of the Lord covers Nigeria as the waters cover the sea and to enthrone the Lord Jesus Christ over the affairs of our Nation so that Nigeria will fulfill the divine mandate she has by being the country that harbours the largest concentration of the Black race in the whole world. Of course we know that it is because of this strategic role that our beloved Nation has to play in the end time move of God that the enemy has been battling for her soul all this while. To contend with those forces arrayed against our Nation and her destined role in God's agenda, the Lord raised the intercessory and Kingdom-focused ministries as championed by the Christian Students (now Evangelical) Social Movement (CESM) the same year that the borders and sanctuaries of our Nation were opened wide to the invasion of strange gods and ancient ungodly foundations through the hosting of the first World Blacks and African Festival of Arts and Culture (FESTAC) in 1977. 

During the 2016 National Prayer Conference (December 28, 2016 - January 1, 2017) which incidentally was the 39th Anniversary of the CESM and in preparation for this year's 40th Anniversary of the inception of the CESM, the Lord reminded us about the significance of this year in that battle for the soul of our Nation which He initiated 40 years ago. It was also at this meeting that the Lord revealed the significance of the venue of the that pre-40th Anniversary Conference which is located at eastern end of the Amuwo-Odofin - FESTAC link Bridge and adjacent to the former Durbar Hotel (now Golden Tulip Hotel), two significant symbols and landmarks of FESTAC 77. It was also hinted that there was a plan by some groups to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of "FESTAC 77".  Just two days ago, the full details of this plan were released as per the attached document, with this statement:

Fifty-six countries and nine states have indicated interest to participate in the one weeklong commemoration of FESTAC”77@40 beginning on Nov.6 in Lagos (and will end on November 11). “The objective of the festival is to seek and re-establish the culture and confidence of the black and African races" including a documentary on internalizing the spirit of FESTAC “77.

Incidentally, the CESM Executive Committee met at Amuwo-Odofin axis two weekends ago to begin the final preparation of the CESM 40th Anniversary which is holding in Asaba, Delta State from 28th December, 2017 to January 1st, 2018. With the release of the FESTAC 77 @ 40 programme and agenda, I have the feeling that we would need to take some prophetic actions in the eve of the kick-off of their programme at that venue the Lord revealed to us last December as being strategic to the contention for the soul of our Nation vis-à-vis "the spirit of FESTAC '77"

If our Chairman of the CESM approves, will it be possible that those of us who can afford to be present to gather at the HAC Gateway Cathedral, Link-Bridge (Amuwo-Odofin - FESTAC) late afternoon/early evening of Sunday, November 5 to make the prophetic utterances and some prophetic actions to counter the internalization of the spirit of FESTAC '77 and to neutralize every effort to revive what is already dead before the activities kick-off on Monday, November 6? For those who cannot make it to the strategic venue, some actions can be arranged as convenient at homes, places of worship, fellowship centers, etc, that Sunday, November 5 so that the invading spirits and the invocations that are going to be made during their weeklong activities will have no space to dock in the realm that covers Nigeria.

I am going to follow-up this e-mail message with some phone calls to some of us, while I will request that we forward this message and the attachment to as many Believers and serious-minded watchers over our Nation to be aware and to participate in anyway they can in this significant battle-setting that will determine where our Nation goes from now, bearing in mind the consequences of that 1977 episode that brought us to where we are today.

    • The Hovering Clouds of Blood

      Today, it is no more news but common fear in Nigeria, of an impending invasion, anytime.  Of that, many prophecies and revelations have repeatedly warned; revelations from children as well as adults, from the clergy as well as the laity, from voices within and without the nation.  Years ago, when we sounded the alarm about Nigeria’s present regime and a coming Armageddon, it offended some, as it occasionally happens.  This evening, I hear the echoes again of the clouds of blood that for long have been hovering insistently over Nigeria, awaiting a provocation.  I am forced once more to my table, to my scroll and ink, to write another epistle.  I shall prophesy in the parable of the scripture by which the Lord had opened a window into the message.

    • God Is About to Open Doors

      The Lord is saying to me that there's some of you who have pressed and pressed to see the doors open for you, but it just seems like they just won't get open.

    • Are You Ready for the Storm?
      A storm is coming. The torrential rains shall fall. The waters shall rise. The floods shall sweep away all wood, hay and stubble. The violent winds will blow away all that was built irresponsibly. (Alois_Wonaschuetz)

      A storm is coming. The torrential rains shall fall. The waters shall rise. The floods shall sweep away all wood, hay and stubble. The violent winds will blow away all that was built irresponsibly.

      Are you building your house on the rock or on the sand?

      "Whoever hears these sayings of Mine and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on a rock. And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it did not fall, for it was founded a rock. And every one who hears these sayings of Mine and does not do them will be likened to a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it fell. And its fall was great " (Matt. 7:24-27).

      "What sayings of Mine" is Jesus specifically referring to in these passages? Reading in context, Jesus began a lengthy teaching from Matthew 5-7 and the central theme of it seems to be the character of the heart of man—from the Beatitudes, to loving our enemies, to having the right motives in giving, praying and fasting. Then He goes on to teach them about the Father's care for them and not worrying but seeking first the kingdom of God. Finally, Jesus comes to the end of that teaching and speaks about hypocrisy and righteous judgment and reverting back to heart matters followed by a warning of false prophets and those who call Him Lord but don't do His will. This entire teaching is traditionally known as the Sermon on the Mount, and it ends with the parable of the wise and foolish builders.

      This was one of Jesus' first and most foundational teachings. It set the tone for His public ministry. As ministers that is important for us to know. We must emphasize what Jesus emphasized. These sayings prepared the people and His disciples for what was to come. Herein we find the standard of Jesus' life and ministry for all He did and taught. The heart must be right or nothing else will be right. If the heart is not right people won't do what He says. We must build our lives on Jesus' words, especially these first words of the first lengthy sermon He preached.

      Storms Test the Strength of the Foundation

      Jesus was the Master Builder. When it comes to building people, He is our primary example and pattern. The apostle Paul refers to God's people as God's field and God's building (1 Cor. 3:9), and he calls all ministers his fellow laborers who plant and water the field, and who are to build on the foundation of Jesus Christ.

      The image of the people as a building under construction is very interesting because it highlights the responsibility of ministers to be faithful in how they build. Ministers are like building contractors who are only permitted to build on the prescribed foundation (see 1 Cor. 3:12-15). There are both wise builders and foolish builders (Matt. 7:24-27). To build on the foundation a building of durable material (gold, silver and precious stones) means not only to teach sound doctrine but even more importantly, to be a godly example and live a sanctified life of fidelity to the truth, thus helping to mature the saints. Ministers and especially pastors/shepherds, because they live with the people, teach more by their life example perhaps than anything else.

      On the other hand, to build with perishable material (wood, hay, and stubble) is to provide inadequate or unsound teaching or to compromise the truth by living a lifestyle that contradicts or falls short of modeling it. It is the quality of every builder's work and not the quantity, as seems to be much of the focus today, that shall be tested by fire, for which every builder shall give account to the Lord.

      In Jesus' parable (Matt. 7:24-27) He uses a storm, signifying the pressures, hardships and trials of life, as well as the persecutions we will suffer for the gospel, as a measuring gauge for how solid our foundation is. And what is our foundation based upon? Jesus taught us that it is based upon doing His sayings. Obedience is the issue. ""Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven" (Matt. 7:21). Obedience, not lip service, is what God requires.

      Have you ever thought about what gives us the strength and fuel to obey God? Why are some people obedient and some are not? Why are some doers of the Word and some are not? Why do some people stay faithful to God and remain true while others do not? Why do some start this Christian race but never finish? What is it that causes us to endure to the end (Matt. 24:13)?

      It is the fear of the Lord. Obedience to the Lord is not only proof of your love for Him (John 14:21), but also of your fear of Him. There's been an emphasis on love, although we've fallen short of the full counsel of God in that area, too, but there has not been nearly as much of an emphasis on the fear of the Lord. It takes both of them to produce a strong constitution in your Christian life. Notice in the following two different translations how the love of obedience in Jesus was rooted in the fear of the Lord. They are identical. Or a better way to say it would be that the manifestation of the fear of the Lord is obedience to His Word and His sayings/commandments.

      "His delight is in the fear of the Lord" (Isa. 11:3a, NKJV).

      "He will delight in obeying the Lord" (Isa. 11:3a, NLT).

      I love this verse of Scripture. It feeds and fuels the fear of the Lord in me and the delight to obey Him. This is our sure foundation. Since our obedience is the manifestation of the fear of the Lord in our lives, and since that is the difference between building your house on the rock or on the sand, we then could say that the fear of the Lord is what builds a strong foundation for our houses, which represent our lives. The fear of the Lord produces durable materials in our lives that will strengthen us to stand even in the midst of the storms. Can you see that?

      A house is built by wisdom, and the fear of the Lord is the beginning or the foundation of wisdom/knowledge. Once again, a house represents our lives, homes, families.

      "Through [skillful and godly] wisdom a house [a life, a home, a family] is built, and by understanding it is established [on a sound and good foundation]" (Prov. 24:3, AMP).

      "Wisdom begins with the fear of the Lord" (Prov. 1:7a, CEB).

      "Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge" (Prov. 1:7a, NLT).

      If we build our lives and homes on the true wisdom and knowledge of God that comes from the foundation of the fear of the Lord, we need not fear the storm, because we will stand.

      Paul's Great Desire

      One of the apostle Paul's greatest burdens was this very thing: that the people He ministered to would stand firm in their faith and remain obedient to God even in the midst of the troubles and persecutions of his day. Other New Testament writers shared the same burden.

      Paul's great desire was that the people he taught would not falter under pressure, lest his work be useless or his labor be in vain. Notice his great concern for the Thessalonian saints (1 Thess. 3:1-9). He had warned them of the troubles that would soon come. In his farewell speech to the Ephesian elders, he warned them of the same troubles (Acts 20:25-31). To the Galatians and the Hebrews he did the same, warning them not to turn back to the Law. He was preparing them for the storm and the persecution they would receive from preaching the cross and paying the price to follow Jesus. Warnings are such a large part of the Scriptural admonition that Paul and the other New Testament writers gave to the churches. Today there is a glaring absence of these warnings in our preaching.

      Here are just some I found in the New Testament: Matthew 7:15, 10:17, 24:4-5, 24:11-13, 24:24; Mark 12:38-40; Luke 12:1, 15; Acts 20:29-31; 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10:12, 11:3; Galatians 6:7; Ephesians 5:6, Philippians 3:2, 18; Colossians 1:28, 2:8; 1 Timothy 4:16; Hebrews 2:1-3, 4:1; 2 Peter 1:10, 3:17.

      Fellow minister and preacher, how well are you preparing yourself and your people for the storm? Are you teaching them the whole counsel of God or catering to itching ears? Are you including the warnings in your preaching? Are you preaching on only the goodness and mercy of God, or do you also preach on His severity, wrath and judgments? Are you only preaching on the love of God, or do you place emphasis on His holiness too? Do you ever preach on sin and repentance? Are your concepts of the love of God and the grace of God accurate and in accordance with Scripture?

      If not, then you may be guilty of the blood of men: "Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I did not keep from declaring to you the whole counsel of God. .... Therefore watch, remembering that for three years night and day I did not cease to warn everyone with tears" (Acts 20:26-27, 31).

      Make sure you are preparing yourselves and those whom God has entrusted to you for the storm. Oh, how much stronger our churches would be if we included these things in our preaching and teaching and living them out before the people!

    • A Living Sacrifice:

      A good worship pastor will be quick to tell you that worship is more than music. Music is the part we see on Sunday mornings, but there is a much deeper aspect to worship that runs throughout our lives every day of the week. In Romans 12:1-2, Paul addresses 'true and proper worship', and it has nothing to do with singing:
