Anniversary Carnival is indeed the right phase to capture the 20th priestly anniversary of the Spiritual Director, Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria which was celebrated on Wednesday the 29th July 2015
Few weeks before that eventful day, there were pockets of preparations made by different groups and individuals to mark that day inspite of the appeal by the unassuming Spiritual Director who had pleaded that the celebration would only be marked by his prayers and blessing to the people on that day. This appeal could not hold back the desire of many who were determined to celebrate him whether he liked it or not. AMEN SuperNews continued to receive goodwill messages and inquires from people both within and outside the country seeking one information or the other in relation to the anniversary.
As at about 8pm on Tuesday, the 28th July being the eve of the anniversary, when AMEN SuperNews called at the Christ the King Parish, the church was flood with crowd that camped at the church. Those who arrived church premises at 5:am on the anniversary day could not find vacant seat inside the Church. Before 7:am when Fr. Mbaka was expected to commence the anniversary mass, the entire Church compound and the old adoration ground were filled to a sinking capacity by crowd of worshipers that it took one approximately an hour to move from one end of the premises to another due to human traffic.
It didn’t take long and Fr Mbaka began the Anniversary mass. The highpoint of the mass was his sermon that day which he entitled the 20-POINT BLESSING AGENDA. He began the message this way
“Heavenly father as we present this message to your people, please from your supernatural throne, rain down your supernatural unction for the functionality and empowerment of this message, that it goes prophetic, pastoral, apostolic and therapeutic and that it carries the power of your miracles in the lives of whoever will listen to it. Father, from your domain in heaven, send forth your Holy Ghost to minister to all of us. By the efficacy of this message, change lives O God.
“Today being my 20th year as a priest, father be pleased to do something good for my people as we bless you in Psalm 34:1-10. O Lord, I am joining David to praise you and the listeners will receive miracles and victory too that will compel them to praising you.
“In Psalm 34:1-7 the bible says, “I will extol the Lord at all times. His praise will always be on my lips. I will glorify in the Lord. Let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me. Let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord and he answered me. He delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called and the Lord heard him and saved him from all his troubles. The Angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him and he delivers them”.
Continuing he said “One day in the history of Israel in Isaiah 37 the Assyrians came to destroy the entire Israelites. Thousands upon thousands of soldiers encamped on the mountain awaiting the morning time to demolish the whole Israelites. That midnight a prophesy came ‘Go and tell the people of God not to be afraid, that these enemies will never enter the city, they will never step their foot in this city. In that midnight the Bible says that one angel, not two or three or a million angels, only one angel came into the camp where these enemies were with their artillery, weapons and missiles to finish the whole Israelites. I don’t know what he did, but the whole Assyrians died except two people that ran away. And the two people that ran away met their President who happened to be their father. Their father asked them what happening at the war front. They took him to their idol in whose power their father had sent them out and slew him there. They did that because their father had promised them that the Idol will save them and help to defeat the Israel and now the whole armies of the Assyria was dead. Meanwhile the Israelites were sleeping and slumbering. In the same way, when the angel of the Lord encamps around you, such multiple phenomena will be experienced in your own life.
“There is a family that the enemies have gathered against, this prophesy is for such families. Destruction shall meet the enemies of this family. This satanic gathering will end in utter fiasco and total divine destruction. There will integral damage in the camp of these enemies. The enemies shall surely gather but because they are not of God, they shall be scattered, Isaiah 54:15. Therefore fear not. No matter what, God is still alive. The devil may have done his worst but God will do His best. Concerning those who are consulting the native doctors against you, today by the power of our celebration, we are nullifying all their activities against you and losing all that were tied.
“I call on the power of the angel that guard and guide the people of God to come and guard and guide you. May the Angel of the Lord fight for you in any battle you are engaged in. Let the Angel of encampment come and join you.
“Father, I lift my hands to bless your people on this noble day, on this royal day, and on this faithful day. Your word says, this is the day the lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it. Father I am raising my hand to bless my people and I call on that Angel of encampment to come and encamp around your children from now onwards that this Angel will never depart from our community. We call upon this Holy Angel of the Most High God to appear, we need you. Holy Angel, please come, please come, and please come. This Angel of the most High God is going to fight your battles.
“When we celebrate the anniversary of any priest, we are celebrating Jesus because Jesus is a priest per excellence. In Heb 7:17 the Bible says, he is a priest forever after the order of Melchizadek .In Heb 7:16 the Bible says, he has the power of life that cannot be destroyed. I am here blessing you under this power of life as I call equally inside this arena the Angel of Genesis 3:24, the same Angel that camps around the tree of immortality; let this Angel come and protect this family. I call on Holy Angels of Genesis 28:12, let them come and begin to ascend and descend for your sake and for your rescue. I call into this arena the presence of the Angel of Psalm 91:11 that will carry us shoulder high so that our feet will not strike against any stone. Child of God you shall not stumble. I commend you to the hands of the Angel of Vengeance. In ,Psalm 35:5-6, that Angel is coming into the camp to fight for you. You may be wondering why the enemies are persecuting you; you may not know which occult grand master they have taken your name to. Now the hour has come for the Angel of God to be mobilized to go into motion for you against all these occult magical weapons and satanic projections against you. They will fight for you for your total rescue and there will be rescue operation now in the name of Jesus.
Speaking on the 20-Point Blessing Agenda, Fr Mbaka said: “I locate you to the 20 point blessing agenda I have for you. I lift my priestly hand, my prophetic hand and my kingly hand. 29th July, 1995, I was ordained a priest, not only a priest, I was ordained a prophet, not only a prophet, I was ordained a king. I stand in the epicenter of this message to inculcate into our nerves and veins to inject into our inner organs spiritual, physical and even psychological these twenty curing, delivering and emancipating packages with each point representing my year of priesthood.”
Fr Mbaka proceeded to marshal out the blessing agenda, some of the agenda and what said his prophetic declarations on them were, 1. “The Presence of God of Exodus 33:11ff, Psalm 16:11, Matthew 28:20”. Speaking on this he said, “I am calling into the lives of every listener now the presence of God. May I never lack God’s presence. In Deut 11:12 the Bible says that the Land I shall give you is where my presence will abode from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. I lift my hand to bless your family. I don’t know what you are passing through; God is coming to pass through what you are passing through. In the Book of Zachariah 14:1ff, he says I will place my feet on the mountain, the mountain will tear apart and my people will pass over. In Isaiah 45:2. He says, I will go before you to level your mountain. When the presence of God comes Nahum 1:3 says in His presence mountains melt like wax. His presence is coming to melt every mountainous obstacle, difficulty and satanic attack imposed upon you. I am talking about destiny changing comment. God will change your destiny and move you to another level. In Exodus 3, God told Moses to Go to Egypt and Moses asked how can I go unless your presence will go with me. I cannot do anything without God’s presence. When you invite me for a crusade, if I am going and notice that the presence of God is lacking, I will go back. I don’t have apology to anyone. I will go back to the chapel and lie down. I may plan to go out by 6pm but I cannot go unless I go out with the shekinnah presence. It is this Shekinnah glory that is used to cast out demons and destroy the evil spirits. If you come out empty handed, you will be struck down. Psalm 16:11 says he will show you the path of life and in his presence there is fullness of Joy and by his right hand there are pleasure for ever more. I claim this for you. His presence shall go with you as you go and come back. In Matthew 28:20 he said, I am with you always to the end of time. The Lord be with you.
“Divine salvation. The Bible says that Salvation belongs to the Lord and the Lamb sitting on the throne. In the Book of revelation, Salvation belongs to the lamb. In Joel 2:32, the Bible says that those who call on the name of the Lord will see the salvation of the Lord, they will be saved. I am calling on the power of salvation. This is mission of Jesus Christ and that was the gospel reading read on the day of my ordination. Bishop Michael Eneja, the Saint on the making chose that paragraph by himself and it was read upon me, Luke 4:18-19, “the Spirit of the Lord is upon me, he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor, to set the captives free, to heal even the blind, and to declare a year of favour ”. Jesus after reading this closed book and sat down and got up again in verse 20 and said, “Even as you are listening now, this passage is already fulfilled. ” This prophesy upon my life has been fulfilled. In Isaiah 52:10 the Holy book says “all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of the Lord. ”. Your kitchen, store, bank account and all the nooks and crannies shall see God’s salvation. The power of God’s salvivc unction will hit every part of your life. I lift my hand up for you in Luke 1:77 and call on God’s power of salvation for you. The moment the Bible declared this salvation in Luke 1:77, in verse 78, it says “ a city living in darkness a great light has shone” . By the power of celebration today, light is shining in your life in Jesus name. We command darkness to park out in Jesus name. in John 9:5, Jesus is my light, in John 8:12, Jesus is my light. Isaiah 60:1, says “Now arise and shine for your light has come.” Remember Luke 19:9, Jesus entered the house of Zacheus on a day like this and shouted, “Today salvation has come to this house.” I don’t know who has kept you in bondage but under this prophetic, priestly and kingly oil salvation has come into your families, in your undertakings, in your past present and future.
“Divine Healing. After these my twin music albums, the one that will be released in future says that I am filled with healing. I lift my hand upon the sick here. He heals even the broken hearted; in Psalm 4. He will heal you. In Luke 13, He healed somebody that was bound by the spirit of sickness. Even if the spirit of sickness is at work against you, receive divine healing today. By the power of the Eucharist that I celebrate for 20 years now, I declare divine healing for all in Jesus name. In Exodus 15:26, He said “I am the Lord that heals you”. May the healing God appear to heal you because in Exodus 25:25, he says I will take away sickness from your bodies. Matthew 15:13 says, “Every tree not planted by my heavenly father must be up rooted”. In Deut 7:15, the Bible says, when I take away sickness from your body, I will put it into the lives of those who hate you. I pity those who hate you. So you need more people to hate you so that every sickness that comes to your life shall be taken to them.
“Divine Health. God will grant you healing and health. In 3rd John 2 he says that you shall be of good health and you shall prosper even as your soul prospers. Every infirmity and neurological sickness, migraine headache, spinal injuries, receive divine healing now in Jesus name.
“Prosperity. People of God prosper in Jesus name. I lift my hand to my God and pray that prosperity shall follow you. God will bless your destiny. Psalm 24 says that the world and thereof is of the Lord. The devil should not be deceiving you. Deut 8:18 says, “Do not forget the Lord who gives you power to be rich”. I come against every ancestral baton of poverty and wretchedness in your family. Let it be broken today and be put into fire by the Holy Ghost fire. Do not forget in Ezra 6:14, that as Zechariah and Joshua were prophesying people were building and prospering. Now is another prophetic time and I prophesy onto you that have been under the bondage and perennial quagmire of satanic power of wretchedness and it is an oath and a covenant taken in time immemorial that nobody in your family will ever be rich. I stand here today as a priest of God standing on the gap for you in Ez 22:30 that every covenant of wretchedness upon you and your family be considered nullified invalidated and rendered null and void in Jesus name. God takes pleasure in your prosperity, so go and prosper in Jesus name.
2.“Divine Joy. Power of Happiness. May children of God are not happy. I don’t know what is agitating them. Any one that is in God is meant to be joyful whether you eat or not. Habakkuk says in Habakkuk 3:17, even if my farm bears no fruit and there is no animal in my pen, I will continue to rejoice in the Lord my God. You are going to be another Habakkuk and will have what I call ‘no-matter-what’ type of joy. In Philippians 4:4, Paul was writing to the Church in Philippi and he said to them ‘Rejoice. I say again rejoice’ this is somebody who was in the prison telling the people in the church to be rejoicing. What a paradox. Joy is an essential ingredient even for healing and prosperity. Joy is a magnet, joy is magnetic. It can attract a lot of good things for you. Sorrow will attract evil things for you. In Psalm 30:5, the Bible says that sorrow may endure for a night surely joy comes in the morning. In Nehemiah 8:10 the Bible says that the joy of the Lord is my strength. Come on make a joyful noise to the Lord. Psalm 66:1, Psalm 100:1, and Psalm 95:1. Don’t allow anything to hold you bondage under sorrow. In John 20:20, the Bible says that the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
Fr Mbaka continued to speak on other agenda which included, Divine Life, wisdom, and so on. The details of all the agenda and his prophetic messages on each is contained in Fr Mbaka’s video message of that day now being circulated.
The Holy Mass was attended by many dignitaries from all over the nation including the wife of the executive Governor of Enugu State, Mrs Monica Ugwuanyi and her entourage. Fr Mbaka used the opportunity to pray for the President of Nigeria, President Muhammdu Buhari that God will protect and keep him from the enemies. He also prayed that occult men shall not mess up the vision of the Governor of Enugu State, Rt Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI AND GOVERNOR UGWUANYI EXPRESS THEIR WISHES TO FR MBAKA AT HIS 20 YEARS PRIESTLY ANNIVERSAY.
The President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal republic of Nigeria, Gen Muhammadu Buhari has expressed his goodwill message to Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka on his 20 years priestly anniversary celebration.
In a statement issued on his behalf by a Senior Special Adiviser on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu and made available to AMEN Super News, President Buhari praised Fr Mbaka for his “Extra ordinary intrepidity” and “remarkable patriotism”
He said that Fr. Mbaka was a great priest, who was not afraid to speak the truth to power, even at the cost of his own life or being hated by leaders in power. According to Buhari, Fr. Mbaka was a remarkable example that religious leaders are the conscience of and Moral comapass of the society. He said Fr. Mbaka rose to the occasion to add his voice in support of good governance and identify with ordinary Nigerians in the face of despair and uncertain future.
Buhari said “One’s voice to make one’s country better has nothing to do with politics” and as the “conscience of the nation” religious leaders cannot afford to be aloof or indifferent to the miseries of the people”. The President said, “though honest opinions attract hostility from leaders detached from reality,” history would be kind to Fr Mbaka for courageously speaking truth to power, even at great risks.
President Buhari, who said he was “Overhelmed by Fr Mbaka’s sincerity and patriotism ” prayed God to grant Fr Mbaka, good health, long life and wisdom in the service of humanity , adding that Fr Mbaka is a fountain of inspiration to all Nigerians.
In a related development, the Executive Governor of Enugu State, Rt Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi also expressed his goodwill message to Fr. Mbaka on the occasion of his 20th priestly anniversary celebration. In the congratulatory message signed by the Governor and made available to AMEN SuperNews by the SPA media, the Governor said “On behalf of my family, the Government and the good people of Enugu State, I felicitate with you on the momentous occasion of the 20th anniversary of your ordination as a catholic priest”.
In expressing his wishes and prayers to Fr Mbaka, the Governor said “ We are grateful to the Almighty God for this awesome favour and for your successes and accomplishments within this period. We beseech Him to bless you with many more years of good health and fulfillment as you continue your glorious service in his vineyard.
OTHER LANDMARK EVENTS AT THE ANNIVERSARY
Fr Mbaka used the occasion of his 20th priestly anniversary to make a public presentation of his two music albums titled IKUKU OMA and CHIM AKONAM which were songs revealed to him during the rage of his ordeals and trials over his 2014 December 31st Night Prophesy of Change in Nigeria. The Musical albums were launched by the following people to mention but a few; Ozuome, Lucky PH, Isiadinso, Jonathan Anioke, C.J. Mesra, Okechukwu Okereke, Val Nnaedozie, Mama CY Onoh, Ifeoma, C.WO members, Mrs Aligwe, Mr Okparaku (Lolo Adoration), Ndubisi Umeh, Chidi Alor, Mr and Mrs Chimezie, Vivian Ugwuchi, Mr NAD Mrs Osita, and a host of other people.
Moreover, a Magazine captioned “Two Decades of Divine Soul Magnet”, a Compendium of verifiable Miracles and Testimonies in Adoration Ministry Enugu with the Anniversary Brochure was released on that day. Giving insight into the work the Editor-in-Chief of AMEN SuperNews , Barr Ike Maximus Ugwuoke said, “We chose the theme as being suitable for Fr Mbakk’s priestly anniversary celebration this year following our findings on our foray into Fr Mbaka’s biography. This theme was carefully coined from the fervent prayers we excavated from Fr Mbaka’s Ordination Souvenir on 29th July 1995 which read, “Lord make me your Magnet of Souls”. This year’s anniversary is an extraordinary one. This is the first time by our reckoning that a brochure of this kind is published in commemoration of his priesthood anniversary. It is coming at a ripe time. The compendium of miracles and testimonies of people who either encountered God or God encountered in their impossible situations through Fr Mbaka as contained in this piece gives credence to why this celebration is outstanding. This compendium is not exhaustive of the miracles but only a partial documentation of those testimonies that we became privy to from last year when AMEN Super News came on board. This is why we tagged it volume one. It is our desire to continue the documentation of these testimonies in subsequent volumes.
Continuing he said, “In this era of religious fraud where miracles and testimonies are faked by “men of God” as a bait for their church membership, virtually all the testimonies contained in this publication has the address of the testifiers and their phone contacts for anyone who cared to confirm their authenticity. We also have them in video discs for doubting thomases who may want to see them as they give the testimonies. For ease of reference and to aid comprehension, we grouped the testimonies into different categories: Miracle of Deliverance, Miracle of Life Restoration, Miracle of Academic Success and Breakthrough, Miracle of Financial Breakthrough and Job opportunities, Miracle of Healings of all kinds, Miracle of Protection from accidents, Miracle of Fertility, Marriage and Child birth, Miracle of Freedom and Liberty and Miscellaneous Miracles.
The publication also contains the Goodwill messages from individuals, families, groups and firms expressing their wishes to Fr Mbaka at 20 including that of the State Governor, Rt Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
Furthermore , Seasons 1 and 2 of AMEN Movie tracing the life story of Fr Mbaka from Childhood was also introduced at the occasion, the Movie is titled“NWAIKUKU” . Giving insight into the Movies, the AMEN SuperNews Editor said: “the movies feature some popular Nollywood actors alongside the gifted actors and actresses who are members of the ADORATION TALENT HUNTS. In this movie, which is an interplay of Fr Mbaka’s biography and fiction, you will see the episodes that predated Fr Mbaka’s birth, you will see the Ogbuefi Mbaka , Fr Mbaka’s father in his palm wine tapping stock in trade. You will see the agony of Fr Mbaka’s parents as they waited for the arrival of a son in the family; you will see some cultural heritage of the Ituku Ozalla Kingdom like their Onwa ise celebration and their Child-naming Ceremony. You will see Fr Mbaka’s early life spiritual exploits as block rosary child, his temptations and persecutions up to the time he joined the Seminary. One interesting thing about this movie is that so far we have achieved up to season 4 of it. We only released seasons 1 and 2 on this Anniversary day, while the seasons 3 and 4 will be released three weeks after. Note that the Nwaikuku is a movie sequence; subsequent season will continue to come out as we have so much yet to be screen played. By the time we are done with episodes such as, Fr Mbaka’ s seminary exploits and his apostolic work experience, his story of the flying serpent, the witch doctor that withheld the rain, the native doctor that got drowned after challenging him and his other exploits as a priest, His prophesies and his ordeals, the miracles of God through him in adoration ministry etc, we bet you we would have up to Season 50 of his life story and more so long as he lives.”
Similarly in commemoration of the event, a video documentary ORACLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT was also released that day. Giving insight into the documentary, the Editor said “ This is a Video Documentary tracing the Ordeals of Fr Mbaka and the travails of Adoration Ministry over the 31st Dec 2014 New Year Prophetic message of Fr Mbaka titled, “From Goodluck to Badluck” up to the time of the swearing in of General Muhammadu Buhari as the president of Nigeria. It also trace other prophesies of Fr Mbaka on our past leaders like Abacha, Yar’ Adua and Goodluck Jonathan during the time of the Niger Delta militancy. It showcases how the battle over the 2014 Dec. 31st night message was fought and won, who did what and who said what at the rage of the controversies. It explores the era of the musical war of ‘MBAKA WHY’ and all the music by Adorers replying to this question. It contains the major publications made in national newspapers and AMEN Super News News paper, the accusations against Fr. Mbaka and his defense. It is one documentary you shouldn’t miss to have. Like the movies, the Documentary has 4 volumes but only volumes 1 and 2 will be released on 29th July. Volumes 3 and 4 would come later.
Finally the NKWA UMU IKUKU: AMEN Cultural / Traditional Dance Troupes also made their formal outing at the event.
