WATCH: THE CHURCH IN COMA HEADING TO THE MORTUARY – By Bishop E.O Ikeakor.

“So David arose and came to the place where Saul had encamped. And David saw the place where Saul lay, and Abner the son of Ner, the commander of his army. So David and Abishai came to the people by Night; and there Saul lay sleeping within the Camp, with his spear stuck in the ground by his head. And Abner and the people lay all around him….So David took the spear and the jug of water by Saul’s head, and they got away;and no man saw or knew it or awoke. FOR THEY WERE ALL ASLEEP, BECAUSE A DEEP SLEEP FROM THE LORD HAD FALLEN ON THEM.” (1 Samuel 26: 5-16)

…… COMATOSE IS A DEEPLY UNCONSCIOUS STATE CHARACTERIZED BY ABSENCE OF RESPONSE TO EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL STIMULI,CAUSED BY AN ACCUMULATION OF POISON IN THE BRAIN TISSUE, HEAD INJURY, CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE ETC.

……IT IS ALSO MEANS BEING IN A STATE OF STUPOR.
…..THE HAPPENINGS AROUND THE CHURCH SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC GLOBALLY HAVE TRANSPARENTLY THROWN GREAT LIGHT ON THE SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE CHURCH WORLDWIDE.
…..THE CHURCH IS NO MORE IN COMA, BUT IS DANGEROUSLY HEADING TO THE MORTUARY IF NO DRASTIC SPECIAL SPIRITUAL REVOLUTIONS OCCUR URGENTLY.
….IN THE NAME OF LOYALTY AND OBEDIENCE, THE LEADERSHIP OF THE CHURCH HAS EFFORTLESSLY AND UNCONSCIOUSLY HANDED OVER THE FREEDOM, SANCTITY, SACREDNESS AND CONTROL OF THE SPIRITUAL LIFE OF THE CHURCH TO THE ENEMIES OF THE CHURCH.
……THE CHURCH LIKE KING SAUL HAS FALLEN INTO VERY DEEP SPIRITUAL SLUMBER AND SLEEP LEAVING HER SPEAR AND JUG OF WATER TO THE ENEMY.
……JUST AS DAVID TOOK AWAY KING SAUL’S SPEAR AND JUG OF WATER, THE POLITICIANS, SATANISTS, OCCULTISTS, ATHEISTS AND UNGODLY GOVERNMENT OF THE WORLD HAVE TAKEN AWAY THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, RIDICULED THE POWER GOD, THE EFFFICACY OF PRAYER MADE IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST,AND THE WATER OF NOURISHMENT FROM THE CHURCH.
….IF THE ABOVE IS NOT THE CASE, HOW DID THE LEADERSHIP OF THE CHURCH CONNIVE AND COLLUDE WITH THE GODLESS POLITICIANS TO AGREE THAT THE CHURCH IS THE PLACE TO CONTRACT THE CORONAVIRUS?
……WHY DO WE SIT DOWN WATCHING AND HAILING GOVERNMENT WHEN THEY OPEN MARKETS, OFFICES, MOTOR PARKS, RESTAURANTS TO OPERATE FROM MORNING TILL EVENING, YET INSTRUCT THAT CHURCH SERVICE MUST LAST FOR ONE HOUR ?
…… THE SILENCE OF CHURCH LEADERS AND CHURCH MEMBERS IN THE FACE OF THIS DIRTY SLAP BY GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ON THE AUTHORITY AND DOMINION OF THE CHURCH IS NOT A SHY BUT A SHAME TO THE 21ST CENTURY CHURCH.
….. THE CHURCH IS SUPPOSED TO WORK HAND IN GLOVES WITH THE GOVERNMENT ONLY IN ALL THINGS LAWFUL, GODLY AND RIGHTEOUS. HOW CAN THE CHURCH LEADERS REMAIN DANGEROUSLY MUTE OVER THE DIRECTIVE OF THE GOVERNMENT THAT CHILDREN AND THE ELDERLY SHOULD NOT ATTEND CHURCH WORSHIP AND PROGRAMMES FOR FEAR OF CONTRACTING COVID-19?
……WHY ON EARTH SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT DELVE INTO THE SACRED SACRAMENTS OF THE CHURCH BY DIRECTING THAT THE CHURCH SHOULD SUSPEND THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE HOLY EUCHARIST TO THE PEOPLE OF GOD FOR FEAR OF COVID-19?
…..ANYTIME THE CHURCH, CHRISTIANS AND CHURCH LEADERS ARE AFRAID OF PERSECUTION FROM THE WORLD, THAT CHURCH SURELY HAVE SIGNED DOOMED PACT WITH EXTINCTION.
….SAUL’S SPEAR WAS HIS WEAPON OF DEFENSE AND OFFENSE AGAINST THE ENEMY, WHILE HIS JUG OF WATER WAS HIS FOUNTAIN AND REPOSITORY OF REFRESHING, REINVIGORATION AND REAWAKENING. ANY WARRIOR THAT LOSES THESE TWO WEAPONS AND INSTRUMENTS HAVE SURRENDERED TO THE ENEMY AND WILL REMAIN A PERPETUAL HELPLESS VICIOUS VICTIM IN THE HANDS OF THE ENEMY.
……WHY IS THE CROSS-LESS 21ST CENTURY CHURCH HEADING TO?
……WHY HAVE WE ALLOWED OUR MANDATE AND MANTLE OF POWER DEMONSTRATION TO BE TAKEN AWAY BY THE UNGODLY WORLD GOVERNMENT OF OUR TIME?
…..WE ALL STARTED TO SHOW THIS SYMPTOM OF SPIRITUAL COMATOSE WHEN WE STARTED ECHOING FOR THE GOVERNMENT AT INCEPTION OF THE ONSLAUGHT THAT IT IS NOT THE CHURCH THAT IS SHUTDOWN, BUT THE BUILDING.
…..THE DEVIL IS A RELENTLESS STRATEGIST. HE COMES BY CUNNING HARMLESS APPEARANCE . SPIRITUAL CARELESSNESS AND COMATOSE MAKE THE CHURCH NOT TO DISCOVER HIS ANTICS UNTIL WE ARE HOOKED NECK DEEP INTO HIS ONSLAUGHT AS WE SEE TODAY.
……THE CHURCH IS THE HOLY SANCTUARY OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD WHERE HIS POWER AND PRESENCE ARE AVAILABLE AND OPERATIONAL. THE CHURCH IS THE REPRESENTATIVE OF GOD IN ALL RAMIFICATIONS. THE CHURCH IS THE HEALING HOME OF THE PEOPLE OF GOD. THE CHURCH IS THE STRONG TOWER OF GOD’S PEOPLE WHERE THEY RUN INTO AND ARE PROTECTED. THE CHURCH IS THE HARBINGER OF GOD’S GLORIOUS MAJESTY, SOVEREIGNTY AND SUPREMACY.
…..THE CHURCH GIVES SENSE OF DIRECTION TO THE GOVERNMENT. THE CHURCH GIVES HOPE TO THE WORLD AND THE GOVERNMENT IN THE MIDST OF HOPELESSNESS. THE CHURCH IS THE CUSTODIAN OF GOD’S ALMIGHTINESS AND ALL POWERFULNESS.
……WHY ARE WE ALLOWING THE CHURCH TO BE DESIGNATED AS A MERE PLACE FOR SOCIALIZATION AND COSMETIC INTERACTIONS BY THE GOVERNMENT?
…..WHEN THE KING AND PRESIDENT OF SYRIA COULD NOT FIND MEDICAL CURE FOR HIS GENERAL NAAMAN, WHERE DID HE SEND HIM….TO THE CHURCH HEADED BY PROPHET ELISHA (2KINGS 5).
……WHO HELPED THE KING AND PRESIDENT OF ISRAEL WHEN HE COULD NOT HELP GENERAL NAAMAN SENT TO HIM FOR HEALING?….A CHURCH LEADER NAMED ELISHA .
….WHY IS THE PRESENT DAY CHURCH AND HER LEADERS AFRAID OF PERSECUTION?
….THIS UNHOLY MARRIAGE BETWEEN CHURCH LEADERS AND POLITICIANS IS MANIFESTING DANGEROUS IN THE FORM OF SPIRITUAL COMATOSE. AND IF NOT KEPT IN CHECK URGENTLY WILL SURELY LAND THE CHURCH INTO THE MORTUARY.
…..WE ARE BEGINNING TO HAVE A NAME THAT WE ARE ALIVE, BUT THE REALITY IS THAT THE CHURCH OF MY GENERATION IS DYING. WHERE ARE THE ELIJAHS OF MY GENERATION? WHERE ARE THE DANIELS, MESHACKS, SHADRACKS, AND ABADNEGOS OF OUR TIME? WHERE ARE THE APOSTLES PAUL AND PETERS OF OUR AGE , WHO WILL BOLDLY DECLARE ” WE SHALL OBEY GOD RATHER THAN MEN?”
……LET ME CHARGE ALL OF US UNDER GOD TO RISE AND HEED THE DIRECTIVE OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD IN HIS WORD,” Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common Salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to CONTEND EARNESTLY FOR THE FAITH WHICH WAS ONCE FOR ALL DELIVERED TO THE SAINTS. (Jude 1:3)
… TO CONTEND IS TO STRIVE, TO STRUGGLE IN OPPOSITION, AND TO DISPUTE OR DEBATE AGAINST. THE TIME TO CONSCIOUSLY AND SACRIFICIALLY CONTEND FOR AND DEFEND THE CHRISTIAN FAITH IS NOW.
…..SAINT PAUL URGES US IN 1TIMOTHY 6:12 ” FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH, LAY HOLD ON ETERNAL LIFE, TO WHICH YOU WERE ALSO CALLED AND HAVE CONFESSED THE GOOD CONFESSION IN THE PRESENCE OF MANY WITNESSES”
…..IF WE MUST RETRIEVE AND RESCUE THE CHURCH FROM THE HANDS OF GOVERNMENT UNDERTAKERS WHO WANT TO TAKE THE CHURCH TO THE MORTUARY, WE MUST MAKE UP OUR MINDS TO ENDURE HARDSHIPS AND PERSECUTION.
…….CHURCH LEADERS SHOULD SHRINK THEIR DEPENDENCE AND RELIANCE ON POLITICIANS AND AGENTS OF GOVERNMENT FOR FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY AND SUSTENANCE OF THE CHURCH.
…..TRUE CHILDREN OF GOD MUST MAKE THEIR RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO THE CHURCH SACRIFICIALLY FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE GOSPEL AND EXPANSION OF GOD’S KINGDOM.
…..PASTORS AND CHURCH LEADERS SHOULD DE-EMPHASIZE SEED SOWING FOR THE PASTORS COMFORT AND FOCUS ON GIVING FOR THE KINGDOM PURPOSE AND MANDATE.
…… THE TIME FOR THE CHURCH TO REVERT BACK TO AGGRESSIVE AND PRACTICAL BIBLICAL DISCIPLESHIP PROGRAMMES AS AGAINST THE USER FRIENDLY AND UTILITY FOCUSED PROGRAMMES WE ARE FLOATING IN OUR CHURCHES IS NOW.
…….IT IS TIME TO REVIVE MEANINGFUL GOSPEL MORNING CRIES, BUS EVANGELISM, MARKET EVANGELISM,MOTOR PARKS EVANGELISM, CHILDREN MINISTRY EVANGELISM,GOSPEL TRACTS PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION.
… .. I- FEEL-GOOD CHRISTIANITY CAN NEVER RESUSCITATE THE CHURCH FROM SPIRITUAL COMATOSE.
….PROSPERITY MESSAGES HAVE NEVER RAISED DEPENDABLE AND TRUE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST IN ANY ANY GENERATION.
…..FINALLY, BELOVED PEOPLE OF GOD, GOD IS ASKING FOR VOLUNTEERS WHO WILL PAY THE PRICE TO SAVE THE CHURCH FROM COMATOSE. IT IS A PRICE TO DENY YOURSELF. IT IS A PRICE TO ENDURE HARDSHIP AND PERSECUTION. IT IS A CALL TO REFUSE THE KING’S FOOD AND DELICACIES. IT IS A CALL TO BE CAJOLED AND RIDICULED FOR CHRIST JESUS. IT IS A CALL TO DETACH FROM THE MULTITUDE AND SHUN WHAT IS POPULAR, AND TRENDY.
IT IS A CALL TO EMBRACE THE OLD RUGGED CROSS. A CALL TO DEFEND AND SPEAK OUT FOR THE CHURCH AND DAMN THE CONSEQUENCES. IT IS A CALL TO DECLARE LIKE ESTHER,” IF I PERISH, I PERISH.”

MAY THE GRACE OF GOD BE WITH YOU ALL.. AMEN.
