|7 If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed 8 and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned. 9 And if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted, 10 and if it does evil in my sight and does not obey me, then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it.

Abụ ọma 121:1
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
The inhabitants of Ala Igbo (The Igbo Home Land)
The Igbos in Northern Nigeria
The Igbos in Western Nigeria
The Igbo in Diaspora
Other African Countries
Revelation of Jesus Christ in the Igbo culture and heritage.
"22 ...... I see that in every way you are very religious. 23 For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. So you are ignorant of the very thing you worship—and this is what I am going to proclaim to you.
24"The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 26 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. 28 'For in him we live and move and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.'
29 "Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone—an image made by human design and skill. 30 In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. 31 For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.""

Endowed our forefathers the natural and supernatural gifts and talents to flourish in their apportioned geographical space and time
Jesus Christ: The source of all Gifts material and spiritual,Medicinal, Agricultural and insight to multiply and replenish and have dominion over their apportioned domain in the habitable universe.
Repentance and forgiveness from the sins and curse of abominable atrocities of:
Kidnapping, Armed robberies
Corruption of political leaders, Traditional rulers, Religious and Church Leaders.
Repentance and forgiveness from fraud and corrupt business practices.
God's blessing on our farm land and natural resources.
Blessing on the businesses and works or our hands
Oppression and dominion of Northern Nigeria and Islam
Liberation from the psychological trauma of colonial rule.
Liberation from the psychological trauma of civil war.
Grace to discover and celebrate the post civil war mile stones.
Persecution and Martyrdom
The Underlying reason for the hatred of Ndi Igbo by the Evil northern elements is our Christian Identity and
Liberation from all devilish bondages.
Islam has declared war on the Igbo Nation. The goal is to conquer and subdue by all possible means including The Nigerian Civil war, religious riots and martyrdom, Political and Economic marginalization.
The battle line is drawn. In Christ the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but spiritual. We have to match the physical opposition with Spiritual force.
Complacency, self pity or nonchalance are not viable options
Resistance of Islamic Infiltration:
Legacy of Sir Francis Akanu Ibiam and the testimony of Pastor Chuks Uwadoka
That God will arise in Judgement against the enemies of the church and Ndi Igbo
Arise Oh God as in the ancient times.
As on the night of Pass over in Egypt: when you went through every Egyptian house hold to strike every first born son.
As in the day of Herod: when you struck him for not giving Glory to you.
As in the days of Gumi who swore that over his dead body would a woman run for a political office in His state. You struck him and raised a Christian woman as a political leader in his constituency.
The enemy has defied You Oh God
They have slain the innocent children and women
They have mocked your presence in our midst.
They pride themselves in attacking your people in the place of worship.
With hands lifted up in worship your people are cut down and decimated as to say where is the God you call upon? Does he see? Does he hear?
Like sheep for slaughter the enemy pick your people at will.
Lord, do not let fear over run you people lest they avoid your place of worship because they fear their enemy who targets them with arrows like wild game.
Oh God! Do not hold guiltless those that have committed these atrocities against our people and against your Church.
