IN THE DAYS OF HIS POWER SERIES.
TOPIC: SLAVES RIDING ON HORSES, PRINCES WALKING ON FOOT!
Rev. Innocent Peace-Udochukwu

“I have seen servants on horses, and rulers walking on the earth as servants.”
Today I want to talk to my people the GREAT JEWS OF AFRICA, THE IGBO/BIAFRA NATION
One of the wisest men in Bible times in the person of King Solomon, pictured a prince trekking and his servant riding upon a horse, as seen in Eccl.10: 5-7. According to King Solomon, this is another error he saw under the sun. A prince actually is a male member of a royal family. He is the son of the sovereign ruler and in some cases, the heir apparent to the throne. So, it is abnormal to see a prince trekking, while the servant is riding on a horse. Princes are meant to be on horses, while servants walk on foot. God Who made the universe gave each its place according to time and season.
5There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler:
6 Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place.
7 I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.
It is not right for a servant to be riding horses while a prince is walking.
Proverbs 19:10 – Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.(It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury, much less for a slave to rule over princes. (RSV)
Proverbs 30:21 – 22
21 For three things the earth is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear: (KJV)
22 For a servant when he reigneth; and a fool when he is filled with meat; (KJV)
21 Under three things the earth TREMBLES; under four it cannot bear up: (RSV)
22 a SLAVE when he BECOMES KING, and a FOOL when he is FILLED with FOOD; (RSV)
We Are Priests And Kings
Revelation 1: 6 – And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father;
Why Will Servants Ride Upon Horses While Princess Walk?
When A Prince Does Not Know Who He Is?
Hosea 4:6 – My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:
John 8:32 – And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
When A Prince Does Not Know That Riding Horses Is His Birthright
What you DON’T KNOW MAY BE KILLING YOU!!
One of the reasons a prince will be trekking and his servant riding on the horse is ignorance. The above scripture explained that, as long as an heir remains a child (lacking understanding and wisdom), he is not different from the servant, even though his father is the owner of the estate. The heir that is a child (immature) does not know his rights; hence cannot exercise it. Whenever the heir comes to maturity as a result of knowledge, he quickly takes over.
“Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.”
Man that is in honour! — The rich and honourable man who has no spiritual understanding, is a beast in the sight of God. The spirit of this maxim is, A man who is in a dignified official situation, but destitute of learning and sound sense, is like a beast. The important place which he occupies reflects no honour upon him, but is disgraced by him. Who has not read the fable of the beautifully carved head? It was every thing that it should be, but had no brains.
Is this not a perfect description of the Igbo/BIAFRAN situation in Nigeria?
We have everything that makes a people great yet we lack understanding of the greatness we are carrying instead we are wallowing in the VICTIM’S mentality, whining and complaining!
Groveling under those that are supposed to be our slaves!
Understanding differences men from animals, but if they will not follow the highest wisdom, and like beasts find their all in this life, then their end shall be as mean and dishonourable as that of beasts slain in the chase, or killed in the shambles. From the loftiest elevation of worldly honour to the uttermost depths of death is but a step.
Man being in honour, abideth not, “is now like the beast that perish; nay, worse than they, if the greatest evil can make him worse. Man was made a little lower than the angels, crowned with glory, advanced to be lord and governor of all the works of his hands; and all creatures in this world were put under his feet. Ps 8:5-6. But by this natural corruption and IGNORANCE he that was but a little lower than the angels is now something below the beasts. He was to have dominion, but is made baser than those over whom he rules. They were put under his feet, but now he is as low as they. This is the sad issue of my people who are plagued by IGNORANCE and natural corruption.
“Shake yourself free, JERUSALEM! (GREAT IGBO/BIAFRANS,) Rise from the dust and sit on your throne! Undo the chains that bind you, captive people of Zion!”
We are always crying over the denial of our own brethren from Delta and Rivers States, it is because nobody celebrates a man whose life is covered with dust. God says you should shake thyself from the dust. The dust of past misfortunes must be shaken off. Many of us are still weeping today because of the losses of yesterday? Whatever happened in the past has happened; shake the dust off you.
We have mourned enough of our loss of the 1967-70 war and we have been insulted enough by the fulani hersdmen and we must now shake off the dust off us because God in His infinite mercy have returned unto us more hundred folds of what we lost during and after the war in terms of population, we are more in population than any other tribe in Nigeria today as we are always second largest if not the largest tribe in every major city in the country today, in terms of wealth God had also restored more than thousand folds of our wealth taken away after the war. All these are what any tribe or group of people need to rule and reign even in the midst of their most vicious enemies.
Many of us have our feet covered in dust. Dust on the feet signified suffering, slavery and marginalization.
We have struggled so much to build a nation that every of her citizens should be proud to call their own, we have developed many villages, cities and hamlets, we have given employments to teeming majority of NIGERIANS, our wealth is what is sustaining the economy with all the lootings by the political class going on we kept sustaining the economy through our dint of hard works and never say die spirit. Despite all that, life in Nigeria still appears unfair to us but it is time to shake off the dust and climb our horses!
Arise, my people! The great Igbo/BIAFRA nation Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is shining upon you.
It is time to let the nations see your light shinning. I just want to pray for you today that the darkness that has covered your light from shinning shall be folded away now in Jesus name.
Others that are not even your equal have been celebrated; it is your turn to be celebrated also. And I decree that you will be celebrated soon in Jesus name.
Arise! Do not sit any further.
Do something today. Take over the whole space that the sole of your feet touches that’s the blessing of the Lord proclaimed upon you!
Upstarts frequently usurp the highest places, while the truly great pine in obscurity. This is a riddle in providence whose solution will one day gladden the hearts of the upright;
You can resist the devil some more. Do something, don’t just sit there!
Fulanis that many of our elites are groveling under their jackboots because they are occupying higher positions in the country are not as qualified as we are, not even qualified to tie our shoe.
It is an evil under the sun. We must pray today that God will reverse the case and also work for it’s manifestation because faith without works is dead!
See how the servile sons of Satan lord it in the earth! What a high horse they ride! How they lift up their horn on high! Haman is in the court, while Mordecai sits in the gate; David wanders on the mountains, while Saul reigns in state; Elijah is complaining in the cave while Jezebel is boasting in the palace; yet who would wish to take the places of the proud rebels? and who, on the other hand, might not envy the despised saints? When the wheel turns, those who are lowest rise, and the highest sink.
As we pray these prayers, every dust covering our feet shall be wiped off, and God will put the IGBO nation back on the horse of dignity in Jesus name.
Father, we have walked in the dust enough, please dust us up and put us on the horse of dignity in Jesus name.
Lord, destroy today every power imposing the life of a slave on the IGBO nation (in our business, ministry, career, marriage etc) in Jesus name.
My father, whoever may be riding upon the horse meant for us as a people bring him down today in Jesus name.
Father, wherever we are being treated unfairly, fight for us and get our rights back in Jesus name.
