One Dike BarukShalom Chukwudi has shared a photo of his dad who was a Biafra warlord and the gun he used in fighting the war 47 years ago.

Revealing more details, Chukwudi said: “This gun was excavated from my yard. It was used by my dad during the Biafra war. Before the fall of Mbaise in 1971, he trekked from delta state to his home town. In fear of Nigerian soldiers who move from house to house in search of Biafra materials and weapons and to kill or amputate any Biafra soldier found.

    Psalm 20:6-7 KJV
    6. Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
    7. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

    Jeremiah 17:5-8 KJV
    5. Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
    6. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.
    7. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.

    Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
    5. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
    6. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

    One thing that has kept me and my family going in life, is our absolute trust and confidence in the Almighty God. The Psalmist says, some trust in Chariots, and some in Horses, but we will remember the Name of the Lord. Isn’t it an irony and self deceit to see Christians who say they trust in the Lord, while they still pledge their loyalty to some shrines, herbal homes, secret societies and cults? Many of them go about with charms and amulets, which to their belief protects them in times of danger. This is gross hypocrisy, and the Bible says, woe to such individuals.

    Some trust in their parents, some trust in those in authority, some trust in their fat Bank accounts, some trust in their intellect, others trust in their beauty and outward appearances. Remember this, whatever it is that you put your trust in, outside the Almighty God, can fail you at any time, but the Almighty God, whom I serve, never fails. Hence the Bible says, blessed is that man, woman, boy or girl whose trust the Lord is.

    I remembered my secondary school days. There was this young boy whose father was a car dealer. The father was so wealthy that the boy refused to be serious with his studies. Every advise to him to take his studies seriously fell on deaf ears. He had his trust in his father’s wealth. Sad enough, so many years after our secondary school, I was already a graduate and working. One faithful day, the young man ran into me, along a street in Warri, Delta State, Nigeria, looking so tattered. I did not recognize him. He introduced himself to me amidst tears, the father had died and nothing was bequeathed to him. Now he is walking the streets, begging for alms. He remembered all the advise we gave to him in school, which fell on deaf ears, and he cried the more. I felt deeply touched, and rendered the little assistance I could offer, but then it was too late, all his mates have long moved on in life.

    Where is your trust, in your parents, pay package, friends, Pastors, Government, some secret cults and societies, charms, your wealth, your beauty, your intellect, your certificates, etc? Good as these may be, they can fail you at any time, but the Almighty God, Whom I serve, and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, can never fail. He said, I will neither leave nor forsake you.

    Those of you who are still serving other gods, killing innocent human beings for rituals, to get protection or wealth or to renew your covenants in the devil’s kingdom, I advise you strongly today to repent and turn from your wicked ways. Jesus is calling you to come to Him, that He might give you a new life, a hope and a future. Everything you pledge allegiance to today, will fail you, but He never fails. Confess your sins to the Almighty God, right now, ask for forgiveness and cleansing by the precious Blood of Jesus Christ. He will forgive you, no matter how terrible your sins may have been, and He will write your names in the Lamb’s Book of Life, as a Candidate for His Kingdom. However, if you choose to remain and continue in your SINFUL lives, then you stand a great DANGER, as the only option available to you, when you die or when Christ comes, is HELL FIRE!

    May the Almighty God, give us understanding, and the grace to live our lives, absolutely trusting in His infallible Word, His promises and His Mighty Name, in Jesus precious Name, amen!
