Some past warnings to the nation by the God’s Kingdom Society, the Church of the Living God
Those in authority who are indifferent to the needs of their people should take warning as God will plead the cause of the poor and needy who are crying daily and praying to God for help “so that the man of the earth may no more oppress”. (Psalm 10:2-18) Yes “the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever” as God will uproot the unrepentant corrupt fellows who oppress and make things difficult for them. – Psalm 9:17,18.
Issued after the GKS Ministers Conference 2003
There is no denying the fact that the country is being dragged through the mire by several reproachful acts by her citizens such that Nigeria is generally being held in disdain in the comity of nations. This sad situation can be turned around in no time by the grace of God only if the people turn a new leaf by cultivating the godly attitudes that would enable them to be rich towards God rather than merely laying up for themselves treasures on earth. – Matthew 6:19-21; Luke 12:15-21.
If there is any time the principle of transparency should be seen in action, it is now. The Bible says: “He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God”, (2 Samuel 23:2,3) and that when wickedness is taken away from the king, “his throne shall be established in righteousness”. – Proverbs 25:5.
Where people go into politics for self-gratification and vainglory and are bereft of any moral suasion, then there is great cause for worry. …Leaders must be serious minded and mature individuals. They should be people of high integrity who are solicitous of public welfare. They should not be given to the pursuit of personal glory and pleasures. See Proverbs 25:27.
“Warning to the Nation” published by the GKS in 2007
“We urge Nigerians to remember the chequered history of the country and avoid the mistakes of the past when intrigues, mutual suspicious lie-telling, were the norm. All cannot be fair in politics as the gory consequences of our past misadventures are there for all to see.
People forget that wealth, especially that which is illicitly acquired is transient, “…for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven”. – Proverbs 23:5
To the extent that Nigerians do what is pleasing in the sight of God, they have nothing to worry about the prediction that Nigeria is marching inexorably to its inevitable destruction … It is God Almighty Who has allowed this country to be. Nobody can control the future except God. It is what God allows that happens. See Psalm 33:11; Daniel 4:34,25; Isaiah 14:27.
GKS Warning to the nation, published 2014
Those who take the laws into their hands – those who oppress, kill and destroy their neighbours’ property shall not escape the adverse judgment of God. The Bible says “Do violence to no man…” (Luke 3:14) At the end of the day, one who is deliberately and persistently disposed to evil, will not go unpunished… Violence does not yield any good fruits but tears, blood and bitterness. It is only in a peaceful atmosphere that one can negotiate the terms for peaceful co-existence until God’s Kingdom is fully established on earth. The Bible asserts, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” – Matthew 5:9.
GKS “Warning to the nation”, 2015
It is unfortunate that those who are saddled with the responsibility of managing the affairs of the country turn out to constitute some of the greatest dangers to the security of the country. The nation cannot prosper if the rights of the ordinary citizens are continually violated by a few individuals whose main interest is to perpetuate themselves and their cronies in office, at any cost. An individual should not be so powerful as to subvert the popular will in the running of the internal affairs of a party or be allowed to hijack its organs and those of the government. Scripture says: “As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.” – Jeremiah 17:11.
The only remedy to the derelict state of affairs in the country is for Nigerians to realise that the path they had taken over the years had proved to be retrogressive and bereft of any redeeming value and humble themselves to obey the word of God. – Job 34:31, 32.
