Prophet MKO Tibetan, CCC, Elisha Parish (Europe & Nigeria)

Looking at the country Nigeria today with the myriad of problems bedeviling the economy coupled with the role played by the clergy and the political class, we can certainly say, there is danger ahead for the next generation—Ibi nbe n’iwaju wa.
I shared this sermon with my congregation couple of years back and the reaction was quite overwhelming. Why did we say there is evil ahead and how do we stop the evil? Since 1985, Nigeria as a country has been churning out university graduates, brilliant young people who come straight out of school into the labor market with no job, no future and no vision. It has led to a high level of brain drain which benefits the economy of other advanced nations of the world and leads of underdevelopment of our country in the comity of nations.

Let’s look at it this way, in the early 60s, we got our independence from Britain and Malaysia a poor nation equally got hers. Their government officials and politicians came to Nigeria and saw our palm kernel industry—they saw what we didn’t see. They plucked those seeds and went back to their country to sow the seeds on their agrarian land, they didn’t go to a mega church to sow seed, but they sew real seed of palm kernel on their soil and today, they have built an annual multi-billion dollars palm oil industry out of those seeds. But we nursed those seeds here, we got the fertile ground to plant them but we had politicians and policy makers with infertile minds and because we failed to know and change them in time, today the perilous season is here—2nd Timothy 3:1.
Prophet MKO Tibetan
Today, we are still going back to take treatment in London, the President returned to Nigeria yesterday after spending over 100 days in London under medical watch of British doctors. It simply means that 5 decades after independence, we have failed to make use of what we have—the soil. I won’t ever think Malaysia’s President will go seek medical treatment in London or any European country—Ibi nbe n’iwaju wa.
Our misfortune started when Awolowo, Enahoro, Ahmadu Bello, Nnamdi Azikwe sat together to chart a course for our independence from the British colonial masters because none of them trusted each other in the first place. So, we are suffering from what I call ‘suspended sentence of mistrust’ from our political forefather.
God! The Author of calamity?
In the book of Exodus chapter 5 from verse 1, Moses and Aaron went into the palace to tell Pharaoh God’s mind. They said ‘Thus says the Lord God of Israel; ‘Let my people go, that they may celebrate me—that they may hold a feast for me in the wilderness”
Verse 2 gave Pharaoh’s reply; he said “Who is the Lord that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I do not know the Lord, nor will I let Israel go”.
You can imagine the boldness in Pharaoh’s word “I do not know the Lord, nor will I let Israel go”. Today, the vested political interests ruling Nigeria are telling us that they do not know the Lord and they will never allow the poor masses to enjoy dividends of democracy; that they will starve the poor to death and make the schools, the hospitals, the road network and the light/power non-performing. But God said he will never struggle with them for he will surely take vengeance against them according to Psalm 94: In verse 9 & 10, He said “He who planted the ear, shall He not hear?
Prophet MKO Tibetan's 2017 Prediction Book
He who formed the eye, shall he not see? He who instructs the nations, shall He not correct?”
President Muhammadu Buhari
God instructed Pharaoh to let the nation of Israel go, just like he instructed Nigerian leaders to let the masses enjoy the reason for their being born in a country called Nigeria, but Pharaoh rejected the Lord’s instruction and God deed correct him.  From verse 6, Pharaoh decided to increase the labor of the Israelites and made life so difficult for them that they began to murmur against Moses and Aaron just like our politicians have decided to make life more difficult and terrible under this government and people are murmuring against Buhari & APC.  Pharaoh said to the task master “You shall no longer give the people straw to make bricks as before. Let them go and gather straw for themselves. And you shall lay on them the quota of bricks which they make before. You shall not reduce it for they are idle”. In verses 17 and 18, when the Israelites cried that they had no straw to work, Pharaoh said “You are idle! You are idle!! Therefore you said ‘Let us go and sacrifice to the Lord”. So he gave them more work to do and more pain to go through but Pharaoh never knew that the Israelites were suffering from ‘Suspended Sentence of disobedience’ Ibi nbe n’iwaju won, ibi naa si ti de!
The Congregation during a sermon
It all began in Genesis Chapter 15 from verse 9 when God asked Abraham to bring Him some sacrifices of  3 years old heifer, female goat, and ram; a turtledove and a young pigeon but because Abraham failed to cut the birds into two and even drove the vultures that came down for the carcasses away, God told Abraham in verse 13 after making a deep sleep fall upon him “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. And also the nation whom they served I will judge, afterwards they shall come out with great possessions”.
Now, Pharaoh was fulfilling God’s decree in Exodus 5 but he was unaware. He never knew that the Israelite were suffering from a suspended sentence of disobedience and God was the author of their trial in Pharaoh’s court—Jeremiah 46:27-28
That is why in Nigeria today, you see some people misbehaving and looking for women’s breasts, tongues and private part for money rituals. Those they used for such are victims of their own generational misdeed and those who are equally doing it now will face their own judgment in the distant future. Their children will also be used for money ritual—Psalm 94:23, Numbers 14:18
The Prophet on the pulpit
After the various tribulations that visited Pharaoh and his kingdom in Exodus 10:1, it said “Now the Lord said to Moses ‘Go in to Pharaoh for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his servants, that I may show these signs of mine before him, and that you may tell in the hearing of your son and your son’s son the mighty things I have done in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them, that you may know that I am the Lord”—that was God speaking because He was ready to lift the suspended sentence on His children. In verse 7, Pharaoh’s servants who initially advised him against releasing the Israelites now said to him “How long shall this man be a snare to us? Let the men go, that they may serve the Lord their God. Do you know yet that Egypt is destroyed? And after asking Moses and Aaron about the details of their movement out of his kingdom, a very sad Pharaoh said in verse 10 “The Lord had better be with you when I let you and your little ones go!, Beware, for evil is ahead of you”—Ibi n be n’iwaju yin!
Obasanjo...The Mechanic who ruled Nigeria
In Nigeria, a mechanic who joined the Army became the Head of State by stroke of luck in 1976 and what he gave us was FESTAC 77. Before then, we had Yakubu Gowon who made so much money and said Nigeria was short of ideas on how to utilize the money, hence he organized Udoji Awards for civil servants and today the consequence of that stupid initiative lives with us. When Murthala, the man who looted CBN in Benin during the civil war and claimed to saw only 4 Kobo in the vault came on board, he retrenched Nigerians in the entire civil service that Gowon gave Nigeria’s fortune to via Udoji Award. Today, the Nigerian civil service sector has become a haven of corruption and the engine room of social backwardness because since the Murthala sack, they became uncertain of their future and started a culture of looting—Nitoriti Ibi nbe n’iwaju wa!
Dr. MKO Tibetan's 2016 Prediction
The same mechanic, Obasanjo came back in 1999 because Babangida and Abacha messed the country up just like Pharaoh messed the Israelites up. Because we seem to lack the will and intellect to change our own destiny, this mechanic has continued to impose governors, ministers  etc on us since 1999 and the evil effects are the bad road network that kills thousands of Nigeria annually across the country, the poorly funded and poorly equipped death centers called hospitals we have across Nigeria; the comatose power situation that has made Michelin, Dunlop and many big industries abandon Nigeria for Ghana and other smaller and stable countries—daju-daju, ibi n be n’waju wa!
Or how can you define a situation where an average Nigerian Parent is made to cough out a fortune at Covenant University or Redeemer’s University only for the child to graduate and be jobless for years. I interviewed a lady who teaches math in a public school recently and when I probed her further, she told me she had P in Mathematic while graduating but today she teaches her younger generation mathematics—Ibi nbe n’iwaju wa!
Chief Olusegun Obasanjo....The Man
Obasanjo was leaving power in 2007 and he deliberately gave us a sick man—Yar Adua because he did not have the interest of Nigeria and Nigerians at heart. The man later died and was buried in Saudi Arabia as they brought and buried an empty casket in Nigeria. The same Obasanjo gave us Goodluck Jonathan only for Goodluck to siphon all our monies through Dieziani, Omokore, Aluko and others, today, Nigeria is paying for it.
Yar Adua & Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Obasanjo's project for Nigeria
But this mechanic, as if poised like the Biblical Pharaoh to punish us for as long as possible, he recently told us that David Mark is the best candidate for 2019 presidency. Can you beat that? David Mark? David Mark has started earning and spending Nigeria’s money at age 29 when he was a young officer. He was a two time Military administrator under Babangida’s regime, a former minister of Communications under same Babangida’s regime and equally held other notable positions until democracy came, he was the longest serving Senate President Nigeria ever had even though he was one of those who worked against democracy in 1993. But today, Obasanjo is telling you and I that David Mark is the best candidate for Nigeria in 2019—a man who has a golf course in Dublin with several properties and investments spread across the world? Does Obasanjo fear God? You have taken us through the evil paths since 1976 and you are still taking us across the same evil paths till date. Does he believe in nemesis at all?
The Church Altar
Under his regime, people started building private universities and the public universities started to lose steam and majority of the people cannot even sponsor their kid’s education any longer and you are asking ‘why do we have kidnappers and armed robbers?’ What happened to affordable education? Is it David Mark who was part of the fraud regimes of Jonathan and IBB that will save Nigeria? Isaiah 10 verse 1 & 2 says “Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, who write misfortune, which they have prescribed. To rob the needy of justice and to take what is right from the poor; My people”.
The Church CCC, Elisha Parish
Shall we say woe to Obasanjo for suggesting David Mark to lead Nigerians in 2019?
Awolowo died inside his bathroom, Oredein died on the road, Adelabu—Penkelemesi died on the road, Abacha died inside his bed room, Abiola died inside a jail house, Arisekola died while catching a nap inside his bed room, Yar Adua died on the hospital bed of a foreign nation, does Obasanjo and many of this politicians who hold Nigeria’s greatness by the jugular and refuse the freedom of the ordinary people know where they are going to die or when?
The masses of Nigeria need to wake up and take a bold step to say NO to this scheme of evil by the few rich because—Ibi nbe n’iwaju wa (There is evil ahead of us)
