The Founder and Spiritual Leader of Inri Evangelical and Spiritual Church, Primate Babatunde Elijah Ayodele (JP), says people should not interpret prophecies like they do in the case of poems and newspaper stories.
He said prophetic messages have deeper meanings and so require that one keeps his mind alive when reading meanings to them.
Ayodele, who unfolded his plan to embark on church and mosque projects in Inri’s forthcoming expansion programme to promote religious tolerance and harmony among Nigerians, spoke while addressing a press conference at the headquarters of the church at Oke Afa, Isolo, Lagos, held to present the 2017/2018 edition of his “Warnings to the Nations” (A Collection of Divine Signals).
He explained that quite a number of people did not have the capacity to interpret prophecies which, he said, was the reason some people describe such divine messages as prophecies of doom.
“Prophetic messages have deeper meanings and thus you need to let your inner mind be at work when you read meanings to prophecies so as to be divinely guided. You need divine wisdom to do it right. A very good example is the divine words of God that we saw during the last general eections in Nigeria”, he said.
Ayodele referred to the book of Isaiah 55:8 to buttress his point, saying: “‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways says the Lord.’ God’s words have spiritual codes and only a spiritually discerning mind can get it right. God is not man”.
On the new book, he said, “Some of the messages have already come to pass namely – The crisis about the election in Kenya, flood disaster in different parts of the world, the political issues in Togo among others. The messages were received in April 2017.
“As you read the book you will come across messages about Nigeria from 2017 – 2019 and beyond and other divinely revealed future happenings. Note this: The Bible is a book of Revelations. Nostradamus cannot be classified as of same divine origin like the Biblical accounts.
“I wan to assure you that irrespective of your religious inclination, you will come across messages that will touch your heart in this book; that is messages about Nations, Governments, Institutions, the Economy among others. The book contains messages about Sports, Energy, Climate, Politics, the Economy, health and so on.
“At this juncture, my brothers and sisters – our country Nigeria needs prayers. The country is in a confused state. Fervent prayers are needed to move the nation forward; more importantly as we approach the 2019 polls,” Primate Ayodele said adding that Inri Church was on the path of expansion even as he particularly mentioned that, “The Inri Family will also build a church and a mosque side by side to promote religious harmony and tolerance in Nigeria. You will also be part of the landmark event at the appointed time.”
This year’s edition of “Warnings to the Nations” also took retrospective look at some past prophecies which had come to past including the number 72 of Page xiv of the book referring to Sunday Vanguard of November 2, 2014: “I foresee that Aminu Tambuwal will defect from PDP. Reporter: Bashir Adefaka (Finally, Tambuwal defects from PDP to APC).
Details of fresh prophecies are contained in the 2017/2018 edition of the newly launched “Warnings to the Nations”, which has been around since April of this year.
