Arguably, the greater evil is not simply the persecution of Christians in various parts of northern Nigeria, but the unholy neglect of the northern believers by most of the Christian assemblies in the rest of the country.

 Please ask yourself these questions:

  • Whenever there was religious crisis in the North, how many churches in Nigeria declare prayer and fasting to intercede for the persecuted brethren?
  • How many churches have you observed packaging relief materials to help the persecuted brethren?
  • Have you seen a church take a full page advert in any newspaper to sympathize with the persecuted Christians and protest against the killings of Christians?
  • Which Nigerian church has gathered the widows, the orphans, the bereaved, the homeless and the mutilated to care for them?

“And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; …”

  • 1 Cor. 12: 26. Do  churches in the South believe this?
  • What shall we tell the Lord?

OUR OBJECTIVES IN RUNNING THIS STORY:

  1. To mobilize Christian prayers for the Muslims in Nigeria. Jesus Christ taught us to pray for those that persecute us.
  2. To re-awaken Christians in the South to their spiritual and moral obligations to pray and support the persecuted Christians in the northern part of Nigeria. “And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.” 1 Cor. 12:26. The sufferings of the Christians in the North are the sufferings of the entire body of Christ in Nigeria.
  3. To encourage churches and Christians in the South to contribute resources to take care of the children and the widows left behind by those martyred in the North. Stephen’s Centre would be able to do much more if the resources are available.
  4. So far, Canadians and other foreigners have been in the forefront of supporting Christian believers persecuted in the North. The Nigerian church should come forward and champion this cause with the enormous resources that God has given Christians in the South.
  5. To encourage Christian families to adopt the cost of educating these children. Some of them are ready to attend Universities but the resources are lacking. In addition, denominations that have established Universities should grant scholarship to these children.
  6. To mobilize warfare prayers against the satanic forces behind these unwarranted shedding of blood in the country. Bloodshed defiles the land. Churches should make religious violence a consistent major prayer point at each prayer meeting and vigil.
  7. To harness every Christian influence in Nigeria to ensure that government takes the right steps to put an end to religious violence in the country.

      The Jury Ministry

       

      This write up will majorly consider and reiterate what God had revealed to me over the past three or so decades He had called me into ministry. For those who have had access to my previous write ups under His Word for Now series will understand the burden God had put into my heart for the nations especially my country Nigeria concerning political, industrial especially the spiritual situation of the country. Many things are happening lately that has spurred me to write this current edition of this series.

      *BLACK CHRISTMAS:*

      *ISLAMIST INSURGENTS MURDER 11 CHRISTIANS*

      The National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) joins all Christians worldwide to mourn the unwarranted and callous murder of eleven innocent Nigerian Christians on Christmas Day, 2019. These Christians were abducted by the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a faction of Boko Haram. According to reports, thirteen men were shown in a video pleading for deliverance while eleven were eventually killed. Two of the captives were released because they are Muslims while the remaining eleven were presumably killed due to their Christian faith. Ten of the Christians were beheaded while the eleventh was shot dead.

    • NIGERIAN CHURCH ON REBELLION COURSE

      Please find below the spiritual condition of the Church as received over a period of time.
      Without doubt, this should have gone quietly to Church leaders but the relevant leaders do not appreciate such admonition.
      It is not too late to return to God and correct the errors responsible for the current distress. God has been warning for years but Christians were not listening.
      May the truth set Christianity in Nigeria free.

      OPEN LETTER TO NIGERIAN CHURCH LEADERS


      Dear Sirs,

      I chose to send this letter to you openly because of the rigors it might take to bring it personally to ALL of you. Please accept my apology for my inability to bring it personally

    • Demolition of Mosque in Rivers State?

      National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) has noted the alarm raised by some Muslims, particularly from the northern parts of the country, that a Mosque building was “demolished” by the Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Nyesom Wike. In a sharply religiously divergent society that Nigeria has become in recent years, such outcry is of tremendous concern to those who understand the implications.
