As this year 2018 began with the cross over night of 31st December 2017 to 1st January, many people were filled with expectations and anxieties as to what the year 2018 holds. It had become a yearly ritual for worshipers of Adoration Ministry Worldwide to converge at Adoration Ground at every New Year eve to spend their cross over night to the new year in prayers and to hear the undiluted prophecies about the new year from the Spiritual Director of the Ministry, Rev Fr Ejike Camilus Mbaka. One thing has always agitated my mind, Fr Mbaka’s prophecies over the years never hit the bar, nor crossed over the bar. They always break every defense and meander to the goalpost. It is for the reason that on 31st December night of every year,Worshipers from all parts of Nigeria and beyond gather in their numbers not only to thank God for seeing them through in the ending year but to hear the message of God for them for the New Year. This has been a tradition in the ministry and in previous years, God has through Fr Mbaka foretold the worshipers what to expect in the coming year. His messages in the previous years had always touched on almost all spheres of human life, economic, political, social and Spiritual.
Fr Mbaka’s 2018 new year message came as shock like every other of his prophecies and had since set tongues wagering, voices wining and mouths blabbing on whether or not it shall come true. For instance, he had among other things revealed to president Buhari “Unless President Buhari quickly and strategically, positions the right people and change the former ones inaugurated by him, the wind of change that he himself inaugurated will blow him away shamefully. The wind will be too strong that Mr. President and the cabal will be blown out of office shamefully. The wind will be irresistible for it will come like a hurricane. Buhari can handle this problem but number one, his office, if he is not careful, another will take… So, Mr. President, as I was waiting on the Lord, I’m asked to advise you, don’t come out for 2nd tenure, after this, retire, peacefully. Mr. President you are the cause of your own problem. God gave you an adviser, a wonderful mentor, a visionist, a matriarch, in the person of your wife, Aisha, but you don’t want to listen to her, that woman is heartbroken,because she understood that you are not yourself. Come back to yourself or you will cry by the time you will be sent out of office. So, those who are encouraging you to come out and run again, they want to disgrace you shamefully and publicly.” While I would not proceed to dissect his2018 prophecies for the nation and the 2019 elections, I only make bold to hand down this caveat to Nigerians that God’s prophecies through Fr Mbaka has always come true. Take it or leave it , but just before then join me on this memory lane of Fr Mbaka’s past prophecies and revelations and what became of them.
PROPHECY OF ABACHA’S DEATH.
Many years ago precisely in 1998 when Fr Mbaka used to hold the adoration Ministry progrmme at Government Technical College (GTC) Enugu, On Wednesday, the night of 3rd June 1998, he started raising alarm that the Holy Spirit has disclosed to him that the then Nigerian Military Head of State, Late Gen Sani Abacha was going to die. Instead of people coming to ask what shall be done to prevent the president from dying, they started attacking Fr Mbaka. He ran away to Awhum Monastery and from there he came to the Church on Sunday the 7thJune 1998 and declared that the Holy Spirit says “By this time tomorrow, President Sani Abacha will be no more”. The whole parish council gathered around his house to caution him to stop such prophecy. Exactly by that time the following day, Monday the 8th of June 1998, General Sani Abacha was reported dead. Fr Mbaka had told the congregation that he never wished Abacha dead but he saw it in the spiritual. He was particularly worried that no one believed him, and regretted that he was in an era where people no longer respect prophetic life. An era where people believe in lies and fairy tells and what they read in papers but not the warning of men of God who tells them what he hears from the spirit world.
PROPHECY OF BLOOD IN THE NORTH AND THE RISE OF BOKO HARAM
It was at such night in the past that Fr Mbaka had prophesied the bloodshed in the North. This was years before the rise of Boko Haram insurgence in the North east .In that prophecy he called on Igbos living in the North to return home because he saw bloodshed in the North. The Boko Haram Insurgence in the North that has caused unprecedented blood flow in the Northern part of the country was a confirmation that prophecy. Fr Mbaka foresaw it before it came.
PROPHECY OF DEATH OF YARADUA AND RISE OF GOODLUCK JONATHAN(OKOLO AND GODDY)
Again it was also under such prophetic anointing on a 31st December Night that Fr Mbaka prophesied the rise of a minor ethic group in the political sphere of the nation. That was in 2008 31st December night. He followed up the prophesy with his analogy of Okoro and Goddy in his message “Vengeance is Coming” at the first half of the following year 2009 precisely in June. Fr Mbaka declared had that he saw a vision where Yaradua was flown abroad and he never returned alive. True to that prophecy, that was how Yaradua ended. Tru e to Fr Mbaka’s prophecy, it didn’t take long before the then President Umaru Musa Yaradua died and Jonathan became the President of Nigeria.
THE PROPHECY OF AN EAGLE AT WAR WITH A SERPET
Furthermore it was in 31st December night of 2013 that Fr Mbaka declared his prophetic vision of an Eagle and a Serpent being at war in Nigeria. It was then that he decried the poor state of the nation and corruption among the persons that President Jonathan appointed to work with him and warned President Jonathan in several of his messages of the plots to wrestle the Presidential seat from him if he didn’t seat up.
OIL BOOM TO OIL DOOM PROPHECY
Moreover, Fr Mbaka’s prophecy of a time of oil doom during the oil boom in Nigeria came on a 31st December Night when he was warning then Government of President Jonathan to diversify the economy and have enough reserve because he was seeing an oil doom coming. It did not take long after these prophecies before we heard about the global economic meltdown that crashed the price of oil in the international market. This was the genesis of the hard economic situation in Nigeria
EBOLA SOLUTION PROPHECY
Also worthy of mention here was Fr Mbaka’s prophecy of a Divine Solution to the Ebola disease that broke out in the country few years ago and threw the nation into panic. Although that prophecy did not come on a 31st December Night, it is worthy of mention that no sooner did Fr Mbaka declared his prophecy of a divine solution to ebola than Nigeria was declared Ebola free in few days the followed. The prophecy came at the prime of the fear of the dreaded Ebola outbreak when no known medical cure could be proffered for the disease and it is contained in his ministration titled “Divine Solution”.
PROPHECY OF THE FALL OF JONATHAN AND RISE OF BUHARI
The 2014 31st December Night Message of Fr Mbaka is still green in the minds of Nigeria. It came at that night when worshipers gathered in millions aggregating into a ground sinking crowd. The Boko Haram insurgence in the North and the uncertainties of the 2015 election year forced had many Easterners home at such times and many of them were there at the Prayer ground to seek divine intervention. Political office seekers and groups notably from the then puling party (PDP) were basking in their seeming support of the Ministry for their party apparently as the then 1st Lady(Patient Goodluck) just visited the Ministry few months to that day. Then the bombshell fell as Fr Mbaka mounted the Stage just few minutes to midnight and his prophetic voice began to roar: He recapped the state of the nation under president Good luck Jonathan in the passing year’s 2014. He then announced his golden massage of Change from the Oracle of the Holy Spirit. He assessed the state of the nation and the weaknesses of Jonathan led government and exonerated Mohammed Buhari of so many misconceptions against him. He continued to declare the need for Change as he praised Buhari’s performance in first sojourn in the seat of power and predicted his coming back into power. He was overwhelmed with the situation that he knelt down and cried to God to save Nigeria. He urged the worshipers not to be complacent but to vote for change, pray and fast. Buhari’s coming into power was a fulfillment of that prophecy.
PROPHECY OF THE DEFEAT OF BOKO HARAM
That was not all, Fr Mbaka also prophesied that Buhari has the panacea for tackling Insurgency which was then a cancerous cankerworm to Nigeria that had boxed the then Goodluck Jonathan Led government into a helpless corner and imposed a great threat to the gathering of Nigerian in the churches and mosques. That prophecy came to fulfillment with the way Buhari government wrestled the Boko Haram insurgence to a halt in less than two years of the administration. No wonder Fr Mbaka said that even if tackling the insurgence was the only thing that Buhari Government achieved, it is enough to thank God for him as protection of life is key and primary to every other need of a nation.
THE 2017 PROPHECY CONFIRMATIONS
As we step into the year 2018, some of the 2017 new year message of Fr Mbaka has come to pass while some are still unfolding. For instance he made this revelation concerning Nigeria in 2017
“In the land of Nigeria, if we are asked what is happening to us now, we can’t explain it very well. The country is a quagmire, in horrible crisscross road, even the leaders are bemused. They are utterly confused. Unless the hand of the Divine is fully in control, Nigeria is like a big ship that is sinking, but God will save us. The nation is like the aircraft that is about crash-landing. I pray that the pilot and the engineers in the craft will do their best, but devoid of the divine hold, disaster is coming. We need more prayers, what is coming is not what any human can control. So whoever is praying should pray harder. It calls for national prayer clarion call. No grasshopper spirit is needed in 2017.People of God should enter the New Year without fear, no trembling. It is face to face with the nasty situation. It is not going to be easy at all but we shall conquer”.
PROPHECY OF THE HUNGER AND HARDSHIP IN NIGERIA AND THE ‘END OF RECESSION’
The hunger the Nigerian experienced in 2017 was one of Fr Mbaka’s prophecy fulfilled. This is because He had at the beginning of the year 2017 declared, “We have spiritually weighed the year 2017 360 degrees, there is no shortcut. Hunger is not going to stop immediately. So people should guard themselves, to be forewarned is to be forearmed. But before the middle of the year, a lot of things will happen that will define what prophetically is called full divine manifestation. God is going to manifest Himself in such a way that many people of God will say really God is still God. More prayers are needed.” Another spectacular thing that happened in Nigeria is that true to Fr Mbaka’s prophecy by the middle of the year 2017, (that was from about June and July) there were lots of improvements in the economy that led to declaration of the nation coming out of recession. Although Nigerians are yet to feel that impact of the end of the recession, that economic authoritative proclamation at the middle of the year is indeed a divine manifestation for the country
PROPHECY OF THE POLITICAL CONFUSION IN NIGRERIA, BIAFRA AGITATION,
The major political agitation and clamour for Biafra routed on marginalization of the Igbo’s which resurfaced in 2017 was fulfillment of Fr Mbaka’ prophecy. Though Fr Mbaka faulted the modus operandi of the Biafra Agitators, he was never in support of Igbo marginalization. He had advocated that instead of wasting the lives of poor Igbo youths, prominent Igbo Leaders should rather come to the front line to lead the crusade. Before the coming of the brouhaha in the east that led to the Python Dance in the East and the declaration of Indigenous People of Biafra as a terrorist group Fr Mbaka had in his new year message of 2017revealed all this in his message when he declared “We are moving into an era there is going to be a lot of political confusion. People of God must pray harder. The prophecy of Exodus 3 resurfaced. Take it raw” Thus says the Lord of Host, I have surely seen the affliction of my people, those who are in Egypt (Nigerians in this case), and have heard their cry, because of their tax masters and oppressors, I know their sorrow and their sufferings and their trials”. In the same Exodus 3 account, the prophecy continued in verse 8, “ I have come down to deliver them out of the power of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of the land, to a land that is good and large, a land flowing with milk and honey. A land of plenty to the place of Canaanite, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzittes, Hivites, Jebusites. Now behold, the cry of the Israelites have come to me; the cry of the Nigerians have come to me. I have also seen how they are being oppressed.
God says that He has heard our cries; He has seen our tribulations, our calamities. He has seen how hungry the Nigerians are and He says, He will not be quiet. But what is going to happen will look a bit political but look deeper, you will see divine intervention. The water is going to be troubled. Many who are eating from what is happening are going to cry. There is going to be a serious confusion in the political domain that will spell the beginning of the wellness for the country people. 2017 is not going to be a year of jokes. Suffering will increase, but divine intervention will occur. We are to pray harder. It is not a year to blame anybody. It is year of looking up to Jesus as Heb 2: says who is the author and finisher of our faith.
PROPHECY OF THE DIVINE MIRACLES AND SURPRISES AMIDST HARD TIMES
Despite the hard times in the country in 2017, many Nigerians still survived and experienced many breakthroughs here and there. Uncountable miracles of uncommon fertility, healings, deliverances and financial blessings were recorded in Adoration ministry in the year 2017. All these are true confirmation of Fr Mbaka’s following prophecy at the new year eve of 2017 when he had revealed “In this coming year, when things begin to get harder and harder, many children of God are going to experience surprised miracles. It is going to be surprising because they may not expect it. It is going to be a year of extra ordinary divine manifestation. In each moment of tribulation, God will manifest Himself. All these manmade problems and manmade hunger are going to be divinely handled. But we have to follow the path of God and pray harder. Because it is going to be a year of supernatural surprises, people of God must remain with God. The warning is that because of the hardship, people should not abandon God. Don’t abandon God. Afterwards it shall be well. The ugly situation is not going to continue like that, it shall be well. It shall be well. It shall be well, it shall be well in the name of Jesus Christ”
THE PROPHECY OF PRESIDENT BUHARI’S CHALLENGES
If there was anything that had sustained Buhari’s Government today it is the prayers of Fr Mbaka and Adoration worshipers. At the beginning of the year, 2017, Fr Mbaka had declared the following prophecy about President Buhari “I am worried because even if we have preached for 20hours, doing healings and miracles, once you mention one word in one second about politics, it appears as that is the only thing we are doing. Over that issue, since our leaders cannot hear anything apart from the one that comes prophetically, President Buhari is warned. If he doesn’t change his style, if he doesn’t change his style, he may not complete his office. The Nigerians are losing hope. They are losing their trust”. In the same vein Fr Mbaka also revealed the assassination plan against Buhari .
In assessing that prophecy we can recall that President Buhari had had a lot of challenges since the year 2017, one of them was his health problem that made him leave the shores of the country for so many months that it was even rumoured at a time that he was dead. At that trying moment, Fr Mbaka and adorers continued to pray for his recovery. Fr Mbaka stood in the gap for him in prayers for Buhari that he must return back to the country alive to continue his work. It didn’t take long before the president returned hale and hearty
PROPHECY OF TEARS FLOWING LIKE RAIN IN ASO ROCK
Sometimes last year Fr Mbaka had revealed that he saw a vision of tears flowing in Aso Rock. Till today many still do know that that vision had manifested in different shades. First was the tears in Aso rock shed over the loss of one of Buharis top appointees that died in a raod accident , As if that was not enough, Buhari’s family recently shed tears over the only son of Buhari, Yusuf Buhari who had an auto bike accident and was hospitalized. Buhari’s wife according to report broke down over the incident. Finally came the overwhelming tears being shed in Benue state over the massacre of over 70 indigenes of the state. Few weeks ago we say the Benue state Governor at Aso Rock as he went to shed his own tears to Buhari to rescue his people.
With the year 2019 presidential election fast approaching, I do not think Fr Mbaka’s prophecy to Buhari should be a surprise to him except if the President does not have his ears on the ground. This is because as far back as January last year, 2017 during Fr Mbaka’s new year message he had sent this warning to Buhari “Nigeria is passing through a deeper economic recession. Our economy is moving into the intensive care unit. Spiritually we need oxygen and sustaining medical facilities. We are calling on the leader, President Buhari again, let him be fast and inaugurate credible economic team, so that this country will not die economically in his hand. Nigerians do not want to accept excuse from you, you made a promise of change, and Nigerians want to see the change. Wake up Mr President, wake up, wake up! Nigerians are dying in your hands. Watch around; look around those who are around you. Are they not confusing you and deceiving you, telling you that it is well? Mr .President it is not well, we pray it shall be well. Right now the country is bleeding; don’t allow the country to bleed unto death. If the hunger that started in 2016 continues in 2018, you will regret accepting to be a president. Sit up! move around! Don’t be caged. You are a lion, you are gallantry, you can do a lot. Are you not sure that those whom you trusted some duties are working against you. Nigerians are getting tired of you and your methodology. Let the 2018 be a year of hope. Mr President there is still chance, there is still a little opportunity left, if you loose it, you will regret ever becoming a president. Forget about the sycophants around you and the praise singers. If anybody tell you that Nigerians are clapping for you, that person is a liar or an enemy of this country. Security wise, you are doing well. War against corruption, you are doing well, but Nigerians are dying of hunger. Their businesses are collapsing. Businessmen are packing home. Naira is dying every day. Nigerians are capable of changing this country. Refuse to be tribalistic. Look around and find people and place square pegs in square holes. Right now you have a lot of round pegs in square holes and they will destroy you. At the end the blame will be upon you. Sit up, change those that must be changed. Their offices let another take and let Nigeria move forward. Nigerians love you when you started, but the love is fading rapidly. A big chimpanzee is coming behind you. Mr President, a big chimpanzee is coming behind you to take over the power. If you don’t sit up, you will not even understand how it will happen. Your enemies will mock you and laugh at you. God called you to this office; don’t allow God to regret it. Sit up!
Too bad to realize that for over one year after the above revelations came from the same man of God who predicted President Buhari’s victory to the polls, neither the President nor his party nor those around the President heeded his warning. If only they had heeded the above prophetic warnings of Fr Mbaka which he declared as far back as his 2017 New Year message, who knows if Heavens would have spared President Buhari of the prophetic thunder of his divine rejection in 2019 as declared by same man of God this year? My hands are cross as I continue to watch Fr Mbaka’s prophecies coming true even with the enormous endorsement, backings and support which the said prophecy is now garnering from the opposition party, Arewa Youths, and many well meaning Nigerians.
