…Wants Biafra agitators to change name to Abia nation
By Henry Chukwurah
He introduces himself as the present day “Elijah, the Tishbite” sent to do the work of John, the Baptist, particularly in the South-East of Nigeria and hopes to move from his Abuja base soon to Enugu State to launch a full scale soul-winning movement to preparing the people for the “Rapture.” Already, he has started spreading the gospel of the end-time in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Weird as some of his statements sounded, Pastor Olisadebelum Onuoha, an indigene of Abia State, who said he had been in the ministry since he was born, insisted that there was no slowing down on this task because it is in keeping with his Delta State-born mother’s covenant with God. Talk of modern day baby Samuel!
His words: “I was called by God as a covenant between my mother and God that if He gave her a male child, she would give the child back to Him. Thus, I was sent from heaven to the world to baptise people for the second coming of Jesus Christ.”
“I am Elijah, the Tishbite come again, sent to do the work of John the Baptist, particularly in the South-East, which is the home of the Igbo, the children of Judea, while Moses has been sent again among the Livites, to the children of Israel. Since I was born, I have been under God’s teaching, with God Himself telling me about the anti-Christ.
Onuoha, who during an interview with Abuja Metro, referred to heaven as his witness, said he and two others, including the president of one of the world’s leading nations (name withheld), whom he described as the anti-Christ, were born in the same month in 1964.
He said of the leader: “He is the one that the Bible calls ‘Hell’, who will carry out great tribulation and total brutality against the church. He will force people to receive the ‘666’ mark, but he is not the owner of the mark. The owner of the mark is the one called ‘Death’ in Revelation 6:7-8, a man now in Italy. Satan gave this man his seat, power and great authority to bring the whole world to him in hell.”
Origin of the Igbo
On how he knew the Igbo were from Judea in Israel, Onuoha said: “It all started in 1995 between January 12 and 20 during a seven-day fasting. I fainted on the fifth day of the fasting because I was doing the Zoe type of warfare, jumping and doing Kong Fu, on an empty stomach. As I fainted, God gave me physical bread and tea, but I refused, telling Him that He could strengthen me without the food. I lifted my eyes and saw a dove fly to where I was, and flew away. At that point, I regained strength.
“When Satan saw what happened, he became visibly angry and told me, ‘I will deal with the Igbo’. I woke up and began to rebuke him. While I was still speaking, God called me and said: ‘No, Igbo are physical children of Judea and I sent you in their midst as a high priest over them.’ Hearing this, I began to cry. To be of Judea means that the Igbo are truly from Jerusalem. God told me this on January 17, 1995 and He repeated it on March 17, 2016.
“In 2006, here in Abuja, during a Sunday church service, God sent to me, a white man from Israel, George Cowry, who asked if I was an Igbo. I answered yes and he said God led him to tell me the story of the Igbo. He told me that Jacob and his entire family were white, except his fourth child, Judea, who was black. Before Jacob had Judea, he had said that his father, Isaac, told him that God is a God of miracle and that he (Isaac) had told God to show him a token of His miracle. At the end of the ninth month, his wife delivered their only black boy, Judea. That was why Jacob blessed him above all his other children.”
Pastor Onuoha pointed out also that it was only Judea that lived in the East (Numbers 2:3), while Gad, his brother, lived in the South-South (verse 10) of Israel.
How Igbo came here
Hear Onuoha’s version of how his Igbo race found its way to the South-East of Nigeria. “Judea left Israel because of the sin of Solomon by marrying pagan women and worshiping their strange gods. Remember that God tore the kingdom out of the hands of Solomon’s son (Rehoboam) when the 10 tribes decided, ‘To your tents oh, Israel’ and Judea was left with only two tribes. Due to this development, they could not fight the Babylonians, the Egyptians and Assyrians.
“The Babylonians came and carried all the people of Judea to their country. So, the high priest called Abiathar (Abia) and Ahia, the priest left Israel with the ark of covenant being led by the cloud of God and they came to today’s South-East. The cloud rested in Enugu.”
For Pastor Onuoha, the semblance of names of some people and cities in the Bible with some communities in Abia and Enugu states was not mere coincidence.
“If you come to Igboland, you will see many names in Judea, Israel. They include Abia, Asa, Ahia, Abba and Naze (which is short form for Nazareth)”, he said.
As if determined to confound his would-be readers the more, he said: “The Abia in Enugu and the Abia village in Ohafia were named after the Abia in the Scriptures, while Ahia village (where I come from) and Ahia town were named after Ahia, the priest.”
Advice to Biafra agitators
Pastor Onuoha said the Igbo nation is the kingdom which God referred to in Daniel 2:44 as the last that must come out of this world before Rapture. He warned that the ongoing agitation for a Biafra nation would remain a fleeting illusion because of the name given to the dream Igbo nation.
Hear him: “The name is not Biafra, but Abia nation, unless Igbo want to remove Jehovah’s name from His own inheritance. It is a nation that must arise in time and must, not be left in another nation, not even in Nigeria. God said the nation of Igbo is a must but to be established by himself alone or it shall be trodden under foot by men if He is forsaken in the agitation.
“God said if Igbo answer Biafra, they will be destroyed. But He vowed to enter into battle of supremacy for the Igbo if they answer His name as Abia nation. So, in order not to cut off Jehovah from His inheritance, the Igbo should be agitating for an Abia nation; not Biafra.”
He described Enugu as “God’s administrative headquarters in this endtime” and advised that it should no longer be called Coal city, “signifying darkness”, but Jehovah’s administrative headquarters, adding that Ghana is “God’s treasure home.”
Hinting that Jewish priests will soon enter Enugu”, he told Abuja Metro that it would not be long after the emergence of Abia nation, that the third world war would break out. Asked when this would be, he said: “God did not tell me the year.”
Message for pastors
The self-proclaimed man of God said he was directed to warn his fellow pastors to get ready for the second coming of Jesus by stressing the message of Rapture.
He said: “The message that God gave to the church to preach (Matt.10:7) is on Rapture. Jesus told His disciples that He would no longer eat with them until they meet in the Kingdom of God. So, any message that has to do with the return to Heaven is what Jesus expects men of God to preach.
“Today, pastors dwell more on prosperity, breakthrough miracles and open heavens. They seldom talk about holiness and Rapture. These are injury time messages. Many of them spend 58 minutes of one hour to preach prosperity and success and in the remaining two minutes, say, ‘if you do not receive Jesus Christ or get born again, you will not be entitled to these miracles.’ They do not talk about being entitled to making heaven.
“Pastors should know that the ‘Grace age’ expired in 2000 and the Church has entered the ‘Rapture age’, which is the Kingdom of God’s age.”
Cabals and Nigeria’s prosperity
Pastor Onuoha said genuine prosperity has eluded the nation because of the activities of cabals. He urged Nigerians to pray for divine extermination of the group. “God said Nigeria cannot become a super nation until the death of a 15-member cabal that is holding the country in bondage. When they all die, their boys will disappear from the scene. They are spread across Nigeria.
“God said you cannot kill them because you do not know them, but He knows them and He wants Christians to pray them out of existence because they have sold their souls to Satan and will never repent”, he said.
