For example, he says, "The real essence of learning is to determine the will of God (Eph 5:17; Rom.12:2), and the real essence of living is to do the will of God."
He goes on to write, "No man will be granted access into heaven who did not give his heart to doing the will of the Father while on earth (Matt. 7:21). Someone has said that heaven is the place for those who say to God 'thy will be done,' and hell is the place for those to whom God eventually says 'thy will be done.'"
The purpose of his book is to help each person reading it fulfill God's purpose for their lives on earth, which is His perfect will. And he stressed that "the glorious presence of God is indeed all we need to do His will in this generation."
He was given a glorious vision of the rapture, recorded in Chapter 8 of his book, in which he saw the present condition of the saints who are going up with the Lord. They are doing the will of God. But he also saw the present condition of those who are going down to destruction. In fact, almost all the prominent and well-known ministers in his country of Nigeria, as well as about twelve prominent ministers based in the United States, were headed down to destruction. He gave their names for the redemptive purpose of warning them, so that they can repent and avoid perishing. He stated:
"These include Enoch Adeboye (Redeemed Christian Church of God), David Oyedepo (Living Faith Church), TundeBakare (Latter Rain Assembly), Ayo Oritsejafor (President, Christian Association of Nigeria), Dr. Olukoya (Mountain of Fire and Miracles), Mathew Ashimolowo (Kingsway Church, United Kingdom), Chris Oyakhilome (Christ Embassy), T.B. Joshua (Synagogue of All Nations), Chris Okotie (Household of God), Uma Ukpai and many others!"
"I have never met or known any of these minsters. However, some of these ministers were brought to me in the place of prayer for intercession during the forty-day fast preceding this vision. The Lord introduced them to me as lost ministers."
"Christian national leaders from other countries include –Joel Osteen, Kenneth Copeland, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Billy Graham, Joyce Meyer, Rod Parsley, Myles Munroe, Mike Murdock, Paula White, Ron Kenoly, Donnie McClurkin, Pat Robertson, Reinhard Bonke, Pope Benedict, David Yongi Cho, Duncan Williams and many others!"
"The essence of mentioning these names is for these people to be warned by those who know them and love them so there can be a change in their ways before it is too late! My responsibility is to simply report what I saw and to warn, so I am free of their blood. There are many other lost ministers whose names cannot be listed here, but let everyone examine himself before the searchlight of the Holy Spirit. Each of us must confront ourselves with the gospel of truth before it is too late forever!"
The Lord also granted Ibrahim the opportunity to see hell, which is the final destination of these ministers, unless they repent. In hell, he was allowed to speak to several people, including three top preachers from Nigeria, who have already died and ended up there. He describes their horrific torment, and names these people, as well. I am not going to name them here, because I don't want to be sensational. But you should read Chapter 8 of his blog, in order to see for yourself who they are. Then you can pray for the ones who are still alive, so that they might realize the seriousness of their sin and repent. And if you know them, or support their ministry, you can warn them of their dire situation.
If you are not familiar with the ones from Nigeria, you can do like I did and google their names, then read their biographies. You will be surprised, because based on what is written about their earthly lives and ministries, you would never guess that they are now in hell. And the Lord told Ibrahim that if anyone has any questions about this revelation, they should ask the Lord first.
So I'd like to encourage you to read the book and pray about it. Take this to heart, because this is the season of judgment, and the Lord says He cannot bear any longer what these ministers are doing in His name. He is coming to judge the earth. This should be a warning for all of us, even if your name is not listed as one of the ministers headed for destruction.
As Ibrahim emphasizes so well in his book, we need to be free from all hypocrisy and to be pure in heart. We need to pursue holiness -- for without holiness, no man shall see God.
Please prayerfully read the book, Walking in God's Perfect Will, and use the Testimony Review Process adopted by this blog, as you decide for yourself whether the Lord has spoken to him. Brother Ibrahim is not personally connected to this site. For issues and concerns, each person must confirm with the Lord, whether something is valid or not.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

Well Mr. Len, I have read Sadiq Ibrahim's testimony before. I first came across it were it was thoroughly discussed in one forum made for Nigerians known as 'nairaland'.ReplyDelete
First and foremost, no amount of words on paper can make you understand wholly what we are facing in Nigeria, we the Christians, from our Muslim neighbors. We are used to all kinds of pranks, gimmicks and evil atrocities committed against Christians and humanity by them.
Unlike Emmanuel own testimony, I won't out-rightly condemn or praise this testimony but would remain neutral on this issue for my own safety. Maybe you may not understand... the situation in Israel may not be as worse as that of Nigeria, who have about 200 million people with almost about half of them being Muslim... that is the largest in Africa and perhaps the second largest in the world after Indonesia!
But let me summarize all that we Nigerian Christians feel about Sadiq Ibrahim's testimony in my own words (with my feelings inclusive).
1. The most alarming thing is the name of the author of that testimony... SADIQ IBRAHIM. Certainly it is a Moslem sounding name. I don't know him so I won't comment further on this issue. But this, base on many people's opinion, call in question the motive for him rendering that sort of testimony!
2. Secondly, if what Sadiq said is really true... that many of the prominent Nigerian preachers (and even American preachers) whom he mentioned names graphically, are all heading for destruction... then it is truly and very alarming and a cause for concern!
3. From the second point above (and also judging from what we know of some of our mischievous Moslims motives), it then mean that something is seriously wrong with Christianity as we practice it today. And if any person entertain slightly for one second that something is wrong with the Christianity we practice today, then that person might likely lose FAITH. And that would not encourage the cause of the Christians, but rather profit the person who wanted us to have big doubts.
4. Humorously speaking, I feel that for whatever motive Sadiq have written this testimony, whether true or lie, it won't hamper faith but rather God's would turn it around to strengthen his people. Such testimony can be classified as what Jesus said THAT THERE SHALL BE RUMORS OF WAR... BUT DO NOT BE AFRAID.
5. I have gone through his book, apart from quoting the Bible a lot in his testimony, I can find a clear-cut answer (as in 100% clarity) why this men are heading to destruction and what they can do to avert it. He, speaking in a broad and general sense, had not really helped clarify this issue.
6. As I told you earlier, the living can take corrections and not go to destruction... take the case of Jonah and Nineveh and how Jonah was angry with God afterward for sparing them. This guy Sadiq is not big G.O.D; he has played his part, so allow God to decide who go to Heaven or not.
7. Finally, I won't say anything good or bad about Sadiq's testimony. It has already generated all the heated debate you could imagine in nairaland forum. As for me in person, I cannot yet publish such a testimony on my website, not because I am condemning it but I feel it still needed to be given more time to pass the test!
Brother Len my question comes from reading Linda and Zipporah's testimony. Since we are not to use jewellery does it mean as married couples we have to take off our wedding rings even if they were prayed over before being used. Secondly if we are not to use unnatural things what about underarm spray and deodorant to prevent body odour bcos cleanliness is next to Godliness. Finally is it wrong to use contraceptives as a christian married couple?ReplyDelete
Dear Jen Obeng, thanks for reading this testimony and commenting. I did not have these revelations that you speak of, but I have spoken to Linda and Zipporah. I specifically asked Linda about wedding rings and she said the Lord told her we are not to wear them. The ring does not make you married. As I recall, the Scripture says, "What God has joined together let no man separate." So it is the Lord who joins us, not the ring.Delete
With regard to underarm deodorants, for me the biggest concern is a health one and not a spiritual one. Look at all the ingredients in them, and pray for the Lord to help you find one that is all natural for the sake of your health. If you cannot find one, go with what you feel led to buy and I suggest pray over it before using it.
About contraceptives, that is a very personal matter between each couple and God, which I have written about in comments on another of my blogs. I will simply say you should search the Scriptures, pray, and ask God what He wants you to do as a couple. God has commanded us to be fruitful and multiply, as well as to make disciples. Be sure and obey Him, but if you have already done so, and you have your hands full, that is where you need wisdom from the Lord and help to avoid being overwhelmed. He will give us grace to make the best decision. It is one thing to prevent the birth of any children and it is another thing to limit the number of children. The motives of the heart matter, and do all things will great love for the Lord, for each other, and for the unborn children that Jesus loves so much. Stay away from any oral contraceptives, as these can cause unwanted abortions or birth defects, as well as health issues in the mother. SHalom!
Dear Jen Obeng,Delete
I have changed my view on this and have since written an article that I would like you to read called "Is Contraception a Sin?" Please see it at http://eternal-destinations.blogspot.com/2015/02/is-contraception-sin.html. Shalom!
thanks for your effort and all the means u used to encouraging people with being end-time-minded person, waiting for the coming of our Lord, the Lord is near. the coming revelations are real. keep on...ReplyDelete

Contraception is what Onan practiced that God killed him, Genesis 38:9-10.ReplyDelete
Masturbation, coitus-interuptus, condoms, pills, IUD's, oral sex, homosexual, gay and lesbian affairs all come under contraception.
Enjoying the pleasure and motions of sex using unnatural methods in and outside marriage while avoiding the consequence of pregnancy. Abortion included.
It's all evil in the sight of God.
