The Walk to Spiritual Authority - Part 1

Our Teachings

If Chukwu is the ultimate spiritual power in creation, it carries an implied conclusion that carriers of Chukwu’s blessing are His tools of work in the administration of the world wherein we dwell. Similarly, if Ditu is the only carrier of Chukwu’s blessing in this cycle of incarnation, we are also right in addressing him as the sole representative and carrier of the ultimate Divine Authority until he returns to heavenly kingdom (the Leopard temple) in 2285 from whence he descended. Lastly, if Avatars, messiahs and sons of God, with their respective tenures and missions, are products of the decisions of the inmate of the Leopard temple, then it is reasonable to assert, very conclusively too, that the Heaven { the abode of God} as propounded by past and present religions is located in the leopard temple. 
If the tenures of Ditu and Sher Sheba will last beyond 1000 years, effective from 2020, it does imply that mankind, in its current form, will successfully endure the hazards of climate change, robotic technology and its limitless application as well as population explosion. If the above three evils are to be contained, it carries an implied program that something very extraordinary will take place to alter this dangerous drift. Stretching ourselves further, we can rightly assume that Ditu is already in possession of the divine key to carry out this delicate surgery, likely to be achieved through war, disease, famine and the likes calamities.


Preamble

At creation all spirits were equal in spiritual powers, but as they descended and began to acquire clothings in various strata of life, they lost that parity. The template on which each spirit stood reflected its performance status which was again a function of the exercise of freewill. Overtime and in conformity with the doctrine of cause and effect, the concept of inequality became entwined into body mechanism of each spirit. Consequently, the actions of spirits on the basis of freewill dictated the route each spirit had carved for itself and based on this unfortunate decision the law that “the journey of life exists only to oneself” became the operative force in the universe. Each spirit has created its own trajectory and must do so within a band of what is known as cultural passage.

The supreme decree, as handed down to spirits, is that for every 25 units of action nature responds with 56 units of reward. In other words, successes and failures of spirits-in-clothing only reflect the cumulative effect of spirit’s rating at the moment of assessment. Each spirit or rather person is running the race not only as he deserves but as blended with his deeds in the previous lives. Lastly, no person is either cursed or blessed. As the spark of life, Man curses himself by his negative deeds and blesses himself with his positive deeds.

And having previously established that the spark passed through six major substations and the attached mini ones in between which tuned-down the vibration of the spark to enable it wear the coverings of the flesh, it becomes necessary to articulate options available to us if we aspire to reclaim the lost glory. Those in tears and in want of the means to better their lot are very confused as what next to do to retrace their steps, if possible. They are in want of a more glamourous participation in the theatre of fun without realizing that this cannot be addressed outside the portals of the Spiritual authority. Unfortunately, man’s major drive hinges on the comfort of Now In exchange for eternal bliss. The Christian bible told us that anybody who wishes to run a race and win a price must be temperate in all things. As your cumulative result in the university provides you with first class, second class, third class, pass or failure, so shall our actions in various incarnations either propel you to climb the ladder of life successfully or drag you down to being an infinitesimal article of fun which is usually accompanied by endless cycles of woes, hardship and the like.

One of the greatest tragedies in modern times is the decision of King Constantine to adopt Christianity as the sole religion in his empire without regard to scriptures and practices of early Christians. The council of Nicea, comprising of 300 bishops, was opened on 20th May 325 by King Constantine on the basis of the following reasons, namely, to secure the unity and harmony of the Roman Empire and to articulate and approve Articles of Faith of an all-encompassing religion in his domain under the umbrella of Christianity. Eusebius and his group who opposed the Nicene creed as announced by Deacon Hermogenes, the secretary of the council, were all banished. The concept of good and bad was not only sacrificed on the altar of heaven and hell but was as well buried in the graves of endless sins with its corresponding forgiveness. This practice not only encouraged indulgence in sin repeatedly but as well accelerated the balkanization of cultural norms and values which were indispensable in the functionality and sustainability of any society devoid of all forms of autocracy and crime.

Mankind of all walks of life, whether of the primitive or the civilized, whether of the traditional system or of the organized religion and whether of the black or of the white, are under one common denomination in the belief that the supernatural determines the course of the natural. However, the difference is that some are fortunate in harnessing the latent forces of nature than others and are at liberty to apply those latent tools of nature against the weak and frail in the society. Similarly, the masses of the world are not only at home with the glories of now but also swim endlessly, in the ocean of the non-existence of tomorrow while very few individuals are either willing to balance their quests or choose to bear the hardships of now for more durable pleasures later.

Unfortunately , holy texts of virtually all religions express the benefit of eternal bliss either in a very subtle manner or in figurative expressions but remain very bold in clothing such blissful expressions with dogma and false promises of the victory of God over Satan in wars which did not occur, does not occur and shall never occur. It is important to state in very clear terms that God and Satan are one and same, and could be likened to university professors and academic board. Professors are examiners and assessors of students while the academic board confers certificates, diplomas, and degrees to the qualified. In nature, Satan takes the seat of professors while God represents the academic board. In other words, the works of Satan and God complement each other, because they are both sides of the same coin. The only difference is their role and power nomenclature.

Man is not alone in the cosmos. Similarly, the man of the earth planet is not the creation of the first, second or the third impulse but rather the creation of seven Gods {In the likeness of the third impulse} from a distant star about 19 billion years away. If these seven Gods of both male and female as well as of varying age brackets were bold enough to abandon their parentage and undertook such a hazardous journey to replicate fun arena wherein we find ourselves, we should not under estimate their spiritual Authority. If mankind has no analogy within a radius of at least 15 billion light years, we ought to be proud of our special status in the cosmos. If these Gods could cover us with their eternal wings in the form of ozone layer to ward-off the hazards of solar wind and radiation as well as all the challenges of the outer space, they should be addressed with greater reverence. Lastly, if it took them thousands upon thousands of years of miraculous deeds to cloth our sparks with matter and flesh body, we should be less reckless in our acts and deeds.

In this article, we will be focusing on the mythology of Egyptian and Greek empires and their relevance in the teachings of Kuu Lam Chee Brotherhood. We are mindful of the toils of our great minds in science to tear-off layers of falsehood and dogma woven around us by vain warlords and religious leaders, primarily in the pursuit of establishing empires under their control. Regrettably, those empires vanished either in their lifetime or thereafter. Any enduring message must be based on facts, even if our level of deterioration is an impediment in the appreciation of what is being placed before us.


Egyptian Mythology

Basically, all aspects of religious faith were enshrined in Egypt’s 3000 years history. They include polytheism, henotheism, monotheism as well as mythology, magic, rituals, divine kingship, mighty temples, and mysterious tombs, professional priesthood, illustrated religious texts, wisdom literature and religious skepticism. Egypt believed in divine deities, worshipped them and the belief in the next world. Egypt’s early dynasties saw the development of Egyptian civilization while 13-17 dynasties represented the time of national eclipse (Egypt was subjected to Asiatic Invaders). Egypt’s greatest imperial expansion took place within dynasties 18 to 20, while dynasties 21 to 30 witnessed her decline which finally came to the end in 341 BC under the leadership of Nectanebo. Thereafter, Egypt came under the leadership of Greek (Macedonian) monarch and the last Pharaoh was cleopatra. At the end of cleopatra’s rule Egypt was incorporated into the Roman Empire, but with their religious norms and values still intact. However, a Christian Roman emperor, Theodosius, in 384AD, Christianized Egypt briefly and until Islamic conquest of 641AD forced Egyptians to become Muslims.

Egyptians believed that the individual person was a mixture of the physical and the spiritual which had several constituents, notably the Ka and the Ba. The Ka was seen as alter ego which came into being at the creation of the physical man. In Egyptian art, the Ka was depicted as an exact replica of the individual. The Ka seemed to represent the ‘’vital force essential to the existence of individual person’’. Egyptian belief described Ba as the free moving entity that separated itself from the body but remained in close proximity to it. Accordingly, Ba was the Greek equivalent of psyche or the Hindu atman. Egyptian beliefs could be said to be weird, but it is not so because it touched the fundamental concept of witchcraft in which our physical body metamorphoses into animal or bird during nightly and psychic travels and actions. Tales of ancient gods with heads of animals or birds are not necessarily false.

Similarly, the funerary Papyri depicted Ba “perched on portal of the tomb or flying down the tomb shaft to revisit the embalmed body lying in the sepulchral chamber below.’’ Lastly, Ib (the heart) was regarded as the god in man, who was to act as ‘’ a kind of witness or censor of the conduct of the individual”. The belief that through proper rituals the deceased would be transformed into a great soul also existed in Egypt. The concept that a very careful embalmment would keep the body as immortal as possible, was in vogue because disintegration was a function of death. Egypt had three options in their afterlife belief, namely, the dead living in the tomb with all the necessary daily requirement, ascending to heaven to join the sun god Re in his solar boat on his daily journey across the sky and lastly ascending to join the imperishable ones, the circumpolar stars.

Apart from religious thought, magic played an important part in the ancient Egyptian life, particularly in areas relating to the principle of symbolic imitation inherent in nature which is the cornerstone of the pro-creative potentiality we exploit in our daily toils. If man is a product of the Supernatural Being that created life, man does possess vital powers to endow certain animal-like objects with magical potency to execute all the commands as stipulated in the rituals. For example, the statue of a particular god could be animated through magical rituals and ceremonies, thereby transferring all the needed vitality and lifeforce to execute the said objectives flawlessly. The Egyptian temples were of three main types, namely, those of Amun at Thebes, Sun temples as that of Atum-Re at Heliopolis and Atem at Akhetaten in the form of a square enclosed by walls but open to the sky.

In ancient Egypt, the concept of Truth and Justice was the attribute of the great God and this grew into Ethics and Morality which gave birth that the dead would be judged on their conduct in this life. Due to the fact “that nobody had come from the land of the dead to tell us how the dead faired” there was this injunction¬ – “follow thy desire so long as thou livest”. Lastly, Egyptians sought to enjoy the world as pleasurable as possible while preparing for death and judgement that faced them thereafter.

Horus was one of the gods of Egypt but in the form of a Falcon, - the peregrine falcon, the most fierce and terrifying of the birds of prey which secured the Egyptian sky. He was identified with the Living Pharaoh and protected the king with his wings. Although he was a leading god of the confederation of clans which secured sovereignty over Egypt, his role was opposed by a league led by Seth. A source said that Horus and Seth were two feuding brothers. In one of the feuds, Horus lost an eye while Seth lost his testicles. However, a divine tribunal vindicated Horus and was awarded the legitimate sovereignty of Egypt. Although Horus was permanently incorporated in the personality of the pharaoh, both Seth and Horus co-operated in the purification of the Baptism of Pharaoh in which the two gods were shown pouring water over pharaoh’s head. Both deities also co-operated in the ceremony of uniting the two lands of Egypt – “Upper and Lower Egypt”. There were conflicting accounts about the parentage of Horus. Horus became the symbol of the Living King while Osiris took the seat of the dead pharaoh. Lastly, the concept of Madonna was first attributed to the Falcon god, Horus, but this tradition was thought to be of pagan root.

As one of the oldest gods, Osiris had to his credit of having been worshipped longer than any other god. In arts and literature (both sacred and secular), he was one of the figures most abundantly portrayed. He was also regarded as both Saviour and Judge. At a point, he was murdered by Seth but was raised to life and became god of the Underworld. Isis and Nephthys raised Osiris through series of magical incantations and by fanning air into the inanimate Osiris with falcon wings. As the god of the dead, he was assigned to effect the resurrection of pharaohs. Osiris, the divine hero, suffered and died and then rose from the dead. He provided Egypt with resurrection from death and achieved eternal life, thereby being the prototype of Christ.

Seth, the lord of Upper Egypt and the murderer of Osiris, had a chequered carrier in Egyptian Mythology. Unlike mermaids whose tails are in the likeness of the fish, both Seth and Horus possessed Human-shaped bodies with animal heads. Horus was Falcon-Headed while Seth was Canine-Headed. Although the identity of Seth’s animal head was and still problematic. In the unity of upper and lower Egypt, Seth and Horus were seen tying the bond of oneness. Seth also featured in ceremonies concerning the purification and coronation of Pharaohs, but later Thot replaced Seth in the Baptism of Pharaoh. Seth transformed from the Champion-in-chief of the Sun god to Satan because he challenged the established divine order. Seth’s union with the Greek monster Typhoon helped to accelerate the decline of Seth.

Ra (Re) was the undisputed pre-eminence god in Egypt as well as the giver of life and the bringer of light out of darkness. The diffusion of Re gave birth to similar variants in America, India and Europe. Ra was always referred to as male, but with a variety of names; in Sumeria he was known as Babbar or Uti; in Babylon as Shammah; in Ugarit as Shapshu. The key components of Re’s duties included the provider of light and the creator of the balance between light and darkness which was and is still indispensable in the lives of vegetation and dual kingdoms of the living as well as the activities of invisible replica of the body. Re traversed the heaven with a boat in the day but undertook the same journey in the night with another boat. In the beginning, Atum (Re) created light and order out of darkness and chaos.

In the journey of life, Pharaoh graduated from being into the sphere of Re, through into being identified with the living Horus, and finally to being the son of the Sun. Scholars are divided as to how the worship of the Sun spread to other distant lands such as India, and America. However, if most ancient empires and their attached civilizations occurred within and around the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, which included Western Asia, Southern Europe and North Africa, the spread of Egyptian beliefs must have occurred through trade. Similarly, if Egyptian empire lasted thousands of years, and if Egypt was the cradle of civilization, the export of the worship of the Sun would be a key asset to other civilizations which sprang up during and after the collapse of Egyptian empire. It will interest you to know that the spiritual template of today’s man is yet to be at par with the spiritual rating of the children of the Sun. The magical and miraculous deeds of the children of the sun, on moderate estimate, could have been about 50 times of today’s weaklings under the cloak of Christianity, Hinduism and Islamism. We must not fail to state that spirituality is not bound to a particular people nor limited to the people of the old. If spirituality is based on the truth in creation or in the workings of gods, then the walk of the spark-in -embodiment defies distance and tutelage as enshrined in the holy text, but has its essentials wrapped in the words of elders of the cultural passage.

As the first known empire with a well-organized administration, Egypt provided mankind the following ideas: resurrection, magic, saviour. Baptism, judgment after death, Madonna, immorality and duality of man. Since then, subsequent empires had broadened the above views, either negatively or positively. Divergent opinions surfaced, with more and deeper interpretations of philosophical and religious nature being infuse into very simple native thoughts arising from the circumstances of their lifestyle.

The chaos in the kingdom of gods arose because of greed, influence, the concept of the survival of the fittest and ruthlessness. Survival of the fittest was and still remains the end goal in the world of matter. If the law of life teaches us that ‘’as above so below’’ then we should not expect rulership to stand on the tripod of norms, values and ethics. It is a matter of regret that the masses of the world are not only naïve in the understanding of true intention of their rulers but have as well taken irreversible steps in endorsing every dogma aimed at making them impotent. It is clear that most religious teachings, including critical clauses and verses in such holy texts, are rehearsed versions of the views of Egyptians of more than 4000 years ago. It does appear that we have added nothing nor subtracted anything.
The chaotic scenario in the worlds of gods necessitated that gods must partner with other creatures of nature, namely giants and dwarfs. There were constant feuds between gods on one part and the giants and dwarfs on the other side. Gods realized that their powers were not limitless and therefore sought the help of dwarfs and giants to contain their competitors. In a very simple language, gods require additional spiritual platform to secure top spots in the administration of their kingdom.

Many mystical books taught us that there were giants and dwarfs in the world, either they merely reminded us of the endless struggles between gods of our shapes and size and other immortal beings in the form, shape and size of giants and dwarf, or that at a point in time there were three classes of humanity-gods, giants and dwarfs. In the Divine web, we made it absolutely clear that spirits exist in three shapes – “gods, giants and dwarfs”. At the third portal, as the spirit -in -embodiment ascends to higher consciousness, we have three energy levels, namely, gods as depicted in ancient empires and their colleagues in the form of giants and dwarfs. However, spirits in the clothing of gods are on the divine walk, moving from the living through the dead to gods while dwarfs and giants do not descend to the mortal frame. They stop at the portal of the dead where their functions compliment those of the dead, or they become gods with great magical tools. More powerful members of this group graduate to very powerful gods and deities and become the beacon of strength to the weak.

One important aspect of Egyptian mythology is baptism of pharaohs by gods themselves, as the god of the living and dead, pharaohs must receive their mandates from higher gods only. In other words, enthronement or dethronement of pharaohs was dependent on gods only. But today’s baptism is dependent on half-baked or fraudulent priests of non-functional and possibly, non-existent gods. Baptism and coronation of pharaohs stood on the pillar of real gods with all the paraphernalia of Spiritual Authority. Before my descent to be clothed with flesh and blood form, I was in charge of initiations (baptism, coronation and conferment of spiritual powers) in the highest spiritual kingdom of mankind, (the Leopard Temple) the heaven and the abode of the Supreme Being of all the organized religions of the world. Only gods or god realized individuals can embark on initiatory processes. These processes cannot be undertaken with substandard or fake authority.

If we accept the account of the gods as described in ancient mythology, we can rightly conclude that the wheel of life is constantly modifying the template on which the world order rests. Maybe as the number of dead pharaohs, priests and pious members of the society increased and began to participate in the spiritual life of their offspring, the role of gods began to whittle down to zero. Today’s physical templates are largely decided by the dead, witches (top echelon of spiritual personalities still in human embodiment), and the cultural gods (comprising of spiritual giants, dwarfs and creatures of ambivalent looks and shapes). To avoid ambiguity, it must be impressed in your minds that the actions of the above gods are only relevant if they are not in conflict with the goals and programs of the Avatar of the age.

In our holy texts, we mentioned Ramesses II of Egypt as one of our respected spiritual personalities because he personally appeared to the grandmaster of the order in 1985AD. In that faithful night he descended from the sky and introduced himself as Ramesses II of Egypt and began to lecture him on spiritual matters. At the time of Ramesses II’s dictation, the grandmaster did not know that he was the pharaoh that led Egypt to its greatest status and wealth. The grandmaster was more interested in the inauguration of Kali-Yuga (the dark age) which was said to have taken place during the Egyptian empire. If Ramesses the great who died in 1213BC (about 3200 years ago) could locate the grandmaster in Enugu, Nigeria in 1985AD to address him on very sensitive issues of life, it carries an implied fact that today’s belief system is absolutely faulty.

Although Ramesses II lectures did not address the inauguration of Kali-Yuga, but subsequent visitation from the spiritual council put the records straight. As the grandmaster was concluding the article which was pushing him further off the target, an immortal being was sent to arrest the drift. The grandmaster was then informed, with all the authority of the Council, that Yaya Katava inaugurated the Kali-Yuga. Based on this information, we can now take a further step to assert that Yaya Katava was the Avatar during the administration of Ramesses II of Egypt. Lastly and before we move on, let us briefly look at the life of this great pharaoh.

Narmer, the first pharaoh in Egypt according to history, founded the state of Egypt in 3100BC. The royal of Egypt was briefly explained by Bernadette Menu in the following manner – “In the Pharaonic system, the sovereign was an exceptional being, predestined, elect and born of the gods to pursue their creative work. He (or she) was Omniscient, privy to nature’s secrets and an adept of cosmic forces. To be ruler meant to command both normal cycles of the astrological and agricultural calendars and extraordinary and outstanding events. This supernatural vision of the royal purpose had ancient origins and was reinforced by an imperial proclamation of Amenhotep III. The concept was further glorified in the reign of Ramesses II”. The imperial efforts of Thutmose III (1479 – 1425 BC) and Amenhotep III (1390 – 1352 BC) were improved upon by Ramesses II (1279 – 1213 BC).

Ramesses II was the son of Set I and the grandson of Ramesses I. Ramesses II was known for his charisma, splendor and imperial influence, backed of course by his long reign of about 67 years. By the grace of the divine power called Sekhem, Ramesses not only protected Egypt from her enemies by suppressing all revolts and repelled invaders but also extended her borders. His long reign brought increased wealth through out Egypt which encouraged improved social life and professional development in engineering, architecture, medicine, law as well as furthering their pursuit of spirituality. It was also speculated that Jews, in captivity in Egypt, participated in the construction of Pyramids. It was as well insinuated that it was the daughter of Ramesses II who adopted, trained and initiated Moses into the court of Pharaoh, thereby granting him access to all mystical and magical tools of the Kingdom of Egypt. The word Moses in Egyptian dialect meant Mes (the child of a god). It was also wildly believed that the book of creation as expounded by Moses, especially the word Lamech must have come from priests in the court of Ramesses II and likely to have become possible through the inspiration of the divine force called Sekhem. Alternatively, if Yaya Katava was the Avatar during that period, he must have been the source of the word Lamech.

At early years of the reign of Ramesses II, Egypt and the Hittite empire remained in conflict for 15 years over the control of the states and cities that lay in between them. Ramesses II advanced up to Tanip before another front was opened against Egypt by the Libyans. Similarly, Assyria threatened the Hittites during the crisis of Succession between Mursilia III, the illegitimate heir and Harrusilis III, the legitimate heir who ultimately gained the right to the throne. Unfortunately, the exiled illegitimate heir was granted asylum by Ramesses II and bluntly refused to extradite him. Both nations were at war at various fronts and needed peace. To wriggle out of the mess, both empires entered into a treaty which was written in a silver tablet in the official international language (Akkadian). The treaty warranted the extradition of Fugitives and amnesty for refugees. The first internationally recognized treaty came into being under the reign and seal of Ramesses II.

Ramesses II of Egypt died at the age of 90 years, and had over 150 children. In military history, some historians regarded him as being in the mould of Alexander the great and Julius Caesar but when you flip the page some writers tagged him a man of bloated glory. Nevertheless, all were in agreement in acknowledging him as the Pharaoh of Egypt who catapulted Egypt once more to her last golden age.


Greek Mythology

Greek religion began with an epoch when men were in tune with Nature and Natural Forces including the worship of gods and goddesses in human form, and walked through magic to sponsored religion, although no clear separation existed at the time because magic continued to be associated with religion. R.F. Willetts used the following words to describe how the Greek religion was influenced by other paths – “the Greek religion of classical antiquity was an amalgamation of early Aegean with later Indo-Asian elements”. The Greek history was said to have begun with the first Olympiad in 776 BC. But with the discovery of the Aegean civilization, the Greek pre-history was extended to the beginning of the Iron Age (1000 BC).

The leadership of the Aegean World passed to mainland Mycene and as the Mycenean social and economic systems expanded through social conflict and fusion of people and customs, an increasing complexity in cults and mythology was the outcome. There was a struggle, which was never resolved, between the concept of a mother goddess and a dominating male god, Zeus. To buttress this unresolved issue, let us once more refer to R.F. Willetts – “In Neolithic times there seems to have been no concept of a male divinity in human form. He emerged later as a secondary deity, but the tendency to raise him to superior status was clear by the end of Minoan times”. Minoan religion emphasized the overriding importance of the female god, who was bestowed with the following functions – the goddess of hunting and sports, the goddess of ritual dances which held sway over mountains, earth and sea, and lastly, the goddess of life and death. Snake cults featured prominently in Minoan religion and its rituals. In the concept and birth of Alexander the great (the greatest general in the history of the known world), the snake, wearing the personality of Zeus, overshadowed the mother of Alexander.

The central theme of Greek mythology rested on Zeus who was thought to have emerged from two sources, Crete and the cult of Minos, but over time the Zeus of Crete overshadowed that of the cult of Minos. Greek religious ideas included a dying and rising god in the name of Zeus, although he was said to be carrying out this feat annually. If this is true, the philosophy of Christian faith that Jesus died and resurrected was in principle borrowed from the Greeks, more so when it is realized that the words Jesus, Christ and Chi were of Greek origin. This argument is further strengthened by the teaching that the Spiritual Council under the leadership of a particular god of the Olympian pantheon originated from the pagan theory of tribal federation of gods as well as in the belief that military kingship and military godship are the same. The Olympian society, the council that oversaw the Greek civilization and empire were twelve gods, namely – Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Aphrodite, Hermes, Athene, Hephaestus and Hestia. However, Dionysus later replaced Hestia.

Cronus, the youngest Titan, was the chief of the titans who were seen as the children of Heaven and Earth, together with Cyclones and Hundred-Handed Monsters. However, to be both the children of Heaven and Earth was problematic which was only resolved when Cronus castrated his father, Uranus (Heaven), and separated Heaven from Earth, and became king of the gods. Cronus’ primary motive was to free himself and his brothers and sisters from prison in the depths of the earth. However, Cronus faced a prophecy that one of his children would overthrow him and to avoid its fulfilment he opted to swallow them immediately they were born. Unfortunately, his wife, Rhea, smuggled Zeus to Crete and presented a swaddled stone as her new child (Zeus) to Cronus who swallowed the stone as if he was swallowing Zeus. Later, Zeus defeated Cronus (his father) and other Titans as prophesized and fettered them to Tartarus.

Although Cronus’ Greek history was questionable, it is a fact that he was Zeus’ father whose reign was regarded as the golden age in Greek history. If Zeus’ “accession and the necessity of tiling the soil” was correct, it does appear that the relationship between Lamech and Noah in Hebrew mythology, and Cronus and Zeus relationship in Greek mythology served the same purpose. Noah was the first to till the earth for human sustenance in Hebrew mythology. The same applied to Zeus in Greek mythology. Similarly, if Lamech was the link between gods and humans in Hebrew myths so was Zeus in Greek myths.

To avoid defeat in battles, Cronus developed a cult which thrived in child sacrifices. “At Olympia there was a Cronus hill, at the top of which priests known as Kings made an annual child sacrifice to Cronus at about the Greek equinox”. This practice began with early Cretans and was probably re-kindled in the struggle of Zeus’ mother and Cronus. Apart from Mount Olympus, Cronus hills existed in Greece, Laconia and Sicily. Zeus wrestled his father (Cronus) in Mount Olympus and this probably resulted in the establishment of Olympic Games. Lastly, there is a parallel between child sacrifice to Cronus and Jehovah’s directive to Abraham to sacrifice Isaac.

Eleusinian mysteries, the annual initiatory ceremonies at Eleusis in Attica, were held in honour of Demeter and Persephone. These initiatory ceremonies, of course largely agricultural in nature, centered on the application of forces of life and death. The management of the cult was essentially in the hands of the Eleusian family of Eumolpidiae from whom the Hierophant (the Chief Priest) was drawn. Later, the management of the cult was shared with the family of Kerykes with Athenian connection. In 6th century BC, Athenians influenced the building of a sanctuary for the deities of the cult of Athen. It was claimed that during the battle of Salamis in 480 BC, a great cloud of dust, like that of the procession to Eleusis, was observed moving towards Salamis, an indication that Eleusinian deities went to war on the side of Greece in her war with Persia. This incident enhanced the popularity of the cult until the end of the pagan world, and was finally destroyed by Alaric in 395 AD.

The ritual of purification was part of the religious practices of the people. The candidate with his head veiled and his feet on a ram’s fleece, sat on a stool for initiation. In Hymns, Demeter and later Heracles were said to have undergone similar purification. Prior to the initiation, fasting must be embarked upon. Demeter fasted for 9 days which was usually broken with a drink of water and the use of obscene jokes. Subsequently, the candidate was baptized with fire by placing him over fire, and thereafter the initiate experienced a rebirth and a promise of a new life.

But when Athens took over the initiatory processes, they introduced lesser mysteries that bordered on the purification of candidate and this was followed by bathing in river llissus. They separated the initiation into two steps which must occur after a year. Such initiate was accompanied by a pig, the sacred animal of Demeter, to the sea for cleansing. Later the pig became sacrificed to Demeter. Three principal events took place during the ceremony, namely things spoken, things performed and things revealed.

The divine union (sacred marriage) between Zeus and Demeter, Hades and Persephone, the god and goddess, Demeter and Persephone or Hierophant and priestess in relation to the mysteries or in relation to what happened in an underground chamber was purely speculative, but the announcement of the birth of sacred child to the goddess by Hierophant during the initiatory process created the interpretations of the workings of nature. As an agricultural community, the planting of a single ear of corn was used to show survival after death. To buttress this issue, let us look at the exact words of N.J. Richardson,-‘’in the symbol of the ear of corn the initiates may likewise have seen the promise of a new life beyond the grave, and the announcement of the birth of a child may also have symbolized this promise’’.

In spiritual matters, Greece was home to many Oracles and healing gods, the most popular healing god was Asclepios, the son of Apollo and nymph coronis. As a secondary god, he was closer to mortals and therefore more concerned and connected with human affairs. After his birth, his mother (coronis) was killed by Apollo because she had sexual relationship with a mortal lover. As the of son of Apollo, he had numerous attributes including the power to cause good health and sickness.

As Asclepios grew up, his father handed him over to Chiron, the centaur, to teach healing and medicine. His ability to heal all types of aliment was not in doubt, but overstepped his mark when he raised the dead. In anger, Apollo killed him with a thunder bolt. Asclepios, the chief healing god of antiquity, was always seen with his staff and attended to by his great snakes.

There were two major oracles in Greece, namely oracle of Apollo at Delphi and oracle of Zeus at Dodona. Apollo was the god of prophecy and music among others. David Philips described Apollo and its oracle in the following words – “the perfect embodiment of the great spirit, Apollo was perhaps the best - loved of all the Greek gods. Through his famous oracle at Delphi, he exercised a conciliatory influence on Greek politics and he was believed to have founded many of the Greek colonies”

It was also claimed that the temple of Apollo in Asia minor supported Diocletian (Roman Emperor) when he persecuted the early Christians. The oracle at Dodona, the sanctuary of Zeus and the oracle at Delphi, the sanctuary of Apollo engaged in professional rivalry centuries before both of them were destroyed. The oracle at Delphi relied on the authority of Apollo, the God of prophecy while the oracle at Dodona rested on the powers of Zeus, the head of gods. However, if prophecy was in the exclusive realm of Apollo, then the oracle at Delphi would claim the right to prophesy.

Alexander the great was the son of king Philip II of Macedon and Olympias. However, in the dream, King Philip saw a big snake associated with Zeus making love to his wife, Olympias and thereafter Alexander was born. To Olympias, her son Alexander was an incarnation of Zeus. At the height of his career, Alexander visited the oracle at Siwa in the desert of Africa and was received by the oracle as the incarnation of Zeus, a confirmation of what his mother told him. Alexander was handed over to Aristotle for tutelage in matters relating to civility, philosophy and the like leadership qualities. At the age of 16 his father felt that Alexander was of age to assist him in his military campaigns and hence sought his release from Aristotle.

The young Alexander’s first assignment was to command the imperial guard, the elite force of Macedon which played an indispensable role in the defeat of Greece and the formation of an alliance between Macedon and Greece. Unfortunately, Alexander died of strange illness at the age of 32 years on his way back to Babylon after putting to an end the glories of King Darius of Persia and the destruction of the entire Persian empire.

Alexander was born in Macedon probably in 356 BC and died in Babylon in 323 BC. In a space of 16 years, the young Alexander stretched the Macedonian greatness from Greece and European neighbors, through Egypt, Ethiopia, Libya and the entire north of Africa to the defeat of Darius the great and the annexation of the entire Persian empire. All the known world then was under his rulership. He would have gone further had his troops accepted his proposal. According to his troops, they had stayed away for too long and needed to see their families. In all his campaigns, Alexander never lost a battle, and was worldly accepted as the King of Kings. The world is yet to produce his kind.

As a very successful military genius, Alexander sought both military and spiritual accomplishments. In his march to paradise, his team worked up to gauges river and came to the wall of a great city, but three days effort to access the city proved fruitless. Fortunately, in their last attempt they found a small window, and an old man appeared to attend to them. Alexander’s lieutenants demanded tribute from the city and in response the old man declined their request by explaining to them that the city was an earthly paradise, the home of the blessed. Nevertheless, he gave Alexander a mystical stone as a present and back home (Babylon) mystics found out that the stone was heavier than any quantity of gold but lighter than a feather when a little dust was sprinkled on it. This was interpreted thus – “the stone stood for Alexander himself. The greatest monarch in life, a feather would outweigh his value once the dusty death had claimed him”

Alexander was said to have had two encounters with the water of immortality. His cook came to an area with many wells and as he began to wash a dried fish in one of the wells, the fish came to life and swam away. Similarly, as the cook drank some of the water, he became immortal and subsequently turned green. On realizing what happened Alexander sought to see the well but the cook could no longer identify the particular well, and for being unable to locate the well, his master attempted to kill him but failed because his cook had become immortal. The cook was finally thrown into the sea.
 
In another encounter, and maybe a follow-up to the above incident, a palm wine tapper, in rags and carrying the water of immortality in a container made of an animal skin, walked to Alexander and presented to him the gift in the following words – “you have sought this gift since you began your conquest but to no avail. I hereby present to you, your heart’s desire.” Alexander, in company of his lieutenant, was surprised and out of fear slashed the animal skin bag thereby emptying its content on the ground. The weird palm wine tapper laughed and said – “you have been tested and found wanting” and disappeared.

During his campaigns, Alexander faced series of plots to kill him, but being the embodiment of Zeus, he was successful not only in uncovering the plots but also in the execution of the plotters. In this exercise he cared very little about the plotters’ closeness to him or how the plotters had served him. He did not want to face the tragedy his father faced in the hands of his guards. Nevertheless, and at the appointed time all mortals must participate in the dance of death. The young Alexander was no exception and began the eternal walk to the palace of his ancestors in 323 BC. Various options emerged as the cause of his sudden demise and they include poison, natural cause, magical stone from the home of the blessed, his encounter with the water of immortality or that ‘Zeus in him’ had departed at the end of his assignment.


The Review of Egyptian and Greek Mythologies

We sincerely appreciate the resolve of our students to ascertain the truth in religious teachings and belief systems, and deem it appropriate to ensure that all forms of dogmatic clothings are eliminated in our presentations. We are also mindful of the task of unveiling both the truth or falsehood wherever it is sandwiched.

According to the Egyptians, Re, the Sun god, created light and order out of darkness and Chaos. If Moses was the adopted son of one of the daughters of Ramesses II of Egypt and lived with her for about forty years; and if Moses told us in Genesis that God created light out of darkness, it is rational to assume that Moses merely stated what he learnt from Egyptian priests, mystical schools and cults and the like.

Similarly, the assertion of Moses that we are products of gods cannot be invalidated because we did make it absolutely clear that Lumech I, as the leader of the Seven Gods (comprising of two males and five females), created the type of life wherein we were born and do live. An implied truth that we are not alone in the cosmos. If these Gods came from a distant star, they must have moulded our world in the likeness of the place from whence they originated. Based on the account of Moses, we also adduce that if Noah was the first Being to till the soil and sustained his life from things arising therefrom, he was the first Man in our image and likeness. In the light of the above, any reference to Adam as the first man of our kind in the planet Earth is wrong.

In the mortal frame, there are days and nights, representing light and darkness and because nightly activities supersede daily deeds, we erroneously accept the night as the big brother of the day. However, my spiritual experience regarding the eternal walk, as chronicled in the Defence of Igbo belief system, showed a remarkably different scenario. The Divine Journey was a walk along a trajectory which started with an environment of bright light, without heat of course, through a fairly weak light environment to another bright light environment. If the Divine walk is as consistent and continuous as explained above, darkness has no place in the exercise, spiritually. It does imply that darkness only exists in our mortal world. In compliance with the chemistry of our mortal selves, God dwells in the dark, but when the veil is off, God dwells in the light.

If chaos in the world of gods meant strife, betrayal, murder, turmoil and total disregard to ethics and values, and if these vices were prevalent in our earthly lifestyle, then the change from chaos to order was a farce. We did make it absolutely clear that physical and spiritual worlds had never existed outside the control of the Avatar. At the enthronement of an Avatar, a successor is also selected. It was, and is still like a relay race where the baton of leadership is successfully transferred. At the end of the Avatar’s mission, another saviour takes over in an unbroken chain or cycle. No Avatar remains in office for life as it is being claimed by modern religions. Ditu is the current Avatar and will handover to Sher Sheba on the 5th October 2285 AD in a colorful ceremony in the Leopard Temple.

After about 10 years in Ditu’s Avatarship, he sent Michael Klab, the Angel of Death to retrieve essential spiritual items in the custody of the catholic church. Unfortunately, Michael Klab was challenged by the highest spiritual personality in Christendom in the rank of a Monsignor, but the authority of the Angel of Death prevailed, and the symbol of power of the church was retrieved and returned to the spiritual council in the Leopard Temple. Thereafter, Pope Benedict resigned on the instruction of God and was succeeded by Pope Francis who made two astonishing statements, namely, that Heaven does not exist and secondly that his prayers to God remain unanswered. We are mindful of corruption, press exposures and the like conflicting reports in the Vatican, an indication that physical and spiritual accounts don’t tally. But be assured that only the spiritual view is the accurate account of the real event. For example, Obasanjo told Nigerians that he was only interested in the third term but when he was summoned by the country’s Spiritual Council, he confided in them that his plan was to balkanize Nigeria. Lastly, if there is no heaven and if Christ does not answer the prayers of the head of his flock, are we right to still hang on to the Faith? The obvious answer is a capital NO.

The view of Egyptians that man is a mixture of spiritual and physical selves is within the borders of acceptability but with necessary qualifications to blend with the truth as being expounded by Kuu Lam Chee Brotherhood. In general terms any creature in nature with shape and body is made up of two components, namely, the Mortal Frame and the Spark (Ether often referred to as Spirit). Ether is the Spark, the source of life as well as the pulsation that sustains the functionality of forms of existence. In between the worlds of the living and the dead, there are Seven tiers of coverings which the spark picks, wears and discards as it fluctuates within the band. As soon as this mortal self is disconnected from the spark, the mortal body begins to decay to enable its return to its basic constituents, namely, earth, water, air and heat, while the spark automatically picks or rather exposes another finer covering that enables it to exist at a higher energy level. This sequence is continued until the spark settles in the world of the dead temporarily and therefore continues its divine walk in accordance with its cumulative score.

The concept of resurrection (the belief in the system of dying and rising god or man) originated from Egyptian and Greek mystical schools. Three forms of this practice have been identified. Firstly, the dead comes to life and continues with his normal life. Asclepios was a great healer but when he overstepped his mark by raising the dead, he was also summoned by the dead. If a great soul overstretches his authority, he pays the necessary price attached thereto. Secondly, the ability of the dead to dispense with his physical self or to collapse his mortal frame into nothingness and briefly appear to friends and well wishers as ghosts is another example. The resurrection of Jesus falls into this category. Great Dibias of Igbo extraction disappeared into tree trunks and deposited their mortal selves therein and from there they joined their ancestors. Thirdly, the doctrine of the Undead as explained in the making of Vampires is the last leg of this trinity. In most cases, the bodies of the undead in the grave are as fresh as possible, if not fresher than the mortal frame when the individual was still alive. The inability of the undead bodies to decay defies all known scientific laws. The Undead carries out every function the living can undertake, yet not bound by physical limitations. Similarly, the Undead does carry out any function the dead can execute, yet he is not dead.

Based on the above, it does seem that the spirit remains in touch with the deceased remnant until every semblance of its clothing returns to its basic component. However, if the fleshy body is perfectly intact, the spirit expresses all the capabilities of both the living and the dead. As the bone begins to return to its basic component by being completely dissolved, the visitations of the spirit to the body gradually ceases. Embalmment of the mortal frame, if every segment of the body is perfectly preserved, leaves a gap in the whole process of detachment and leads to constant visitation of the spirit. This explains the role of Ba in Egyptian mythology. Similarly, if elders of the family are buried within the walls of the kindred, overtime the compound becomes a shrine or a spiritual ground capable of miraculous deeds.

Lastly, there is neither death nor birth, if the concept of eternal life is real. As the spark or rather the actuating force is on eternal walk, it picks bodies to exist at varying energy levels and discards same at old age, as it passes through one energy level to another or as result of force majeure and repeats this process ad infinitum until perfection is achieved. we are mindful of the assertion of science that the spirit does not exist. To them everything outside the laws of physics is nonsensical. The search for God’s particle is an endorsement that something beyond the laws of physics of today is the driving force in life. However, some scientists accept that through dreams the doors of knowledge are opened while others regard that strange incident as inspiration. They are naïve not to realize that inspirations are nothing but the Spark’s answer to the challenges of the thinker.

Life is a garden of fun which is dependent on diversity and hierarchy. If the garden of fun is to be as pleasurable as possible, it must accommodate all the necessary items of fun, dependent of course on inequality. However, each spark was granted freewill to act as it desires with a proviso “that what a man soweth, so shall he reap”. In other words, we are what we were, and shall be what we are. The above golden rule is further amplified through transfer of power. Baptism, confirmation and initiations are channels of this exercise. No body does give what he does not possess and this being so, it is not a surprise that Baptism, can only be effective if it is done in accordance with hierarchical structure. One must be elevated by somebody higher than him. In Egypt, pharaohs were certainly admitted into the club of gods by gods themselves namely Seth and Horus.

Having said that the walk to spiritual greatness is dependent on the nature of the route one elects for himself. Organized societies opted for baptism, often tagged purification. Methods vary but in each route every aspirant is required to refrain from profane acts and words for some days, prior to the ceremony. This is based on the axiom “that if you do not conquer your weakness, your weakness shall crucify you”. Two approaches have been popularized and they are water and fire initiations, often blended with enticing spiritual songs and appeals to the priest’s god. In Greece, bathing in river llissus was in Vogue. Jesus also had water Baptism conducted by an inferior spiritual person. In Igbo mythology the initiatory process begins with naming ceremony through Ise-Nni (receiving consecrated food from the chief priest of their cultural gods) to admission into masquerade order which is concluded by a trip to a nearly stream between 3 and 4am to have Baptism of water.

During the course of this assignment, I have gone through two key initiations, namely, the initiation into the water of immortality {water of life} and the initiation of fire. Initiation into water of immortality was purely an individual one, and borders on my union with nature and the water of life. On the other hand, initiation of fire was administered on me by the spiritual templates of my cultural passage, my pedigree. Those two initiations were to harmonize my matter self with its spiritual counterpart.

On the issue of child sacrifice or indeed human sacrifice, we shall defer to law and political exigencies in the examination of this knotty issue. We look at the issue in a sketchy manner. Human sacrifice was, is and shall remain an indispensable tool in the activation and sustenance of power in both the physical and psychic worlds. However, there are many approaches to power, namely, human sacrifice, self-discipline and deprivation, Ogbanje and blessings bestowed on an individual on specific assignments. Human sacrifice is inevitable in the pursuit of the following goals – “leadership in politics, military, economic and witchcraft”. Virtually all ancient and modern cults were put in place to pursue the above objectives or aspects of same. No leader in the above sectors of life can really fight witchcraft because it is their common template. However, human sacrifice has two faces, namely blood and fresh sacrifice and the sacrifice of psychic counterpart of the individual. Because of legal limitations, sacrifice of the psychic self in the dream world is now in vogue.

In lesser pursuits, aspirants can choose to have their organs tampered with or have sections of their bodies deformed in exchange for power. Child sacrifice is primarily useful in prophecy and preparations of power lacking in morals and ethics. Virginity of victims (children) is an additional tool in the enhancement of the efficacy of sacrifice. Initiates relying on self-discipline and deprivation live normal life, have sufficient spiritual base and store enough food to carry them for a while as they walk along the divine path. Ogbanjes’ spiritual platforms rest on the particular group (Otu) in the spiritual realm from whence they came to the world of the living. Those on divine missions are riding on the wings of a particular spiritual council that not only decide their mission but also provide them with adequate spiritual safeguard. All those being sent on such missions must be saints and above. For clarity, saints are spirits wandering about in the spiritual realm without Karma. They have purged themselves of the filth of the lower kingdom and can now be assigned to address and cleanse this rotten theatre of fun.

The only type of religious outfit in the world is polytheism. If the spiritual world is structured hierarchically, monotheism is a distraction and without any bearing in the spiritual power calculus. If sin against the Holy Ghost, the least of the three-member council {God the father, God the son, and God the Holy Ghost} cannot be forgiven, then there is plurality in the council, and it is therefore improper to accept its definition as monotheism. If there is three-in -one god there is also a possibility of thousand- in- one god. It is also necessary at this stage, to inform you that in the transfer of power, the initiator is god to the initiate. In the same vein, anybody whose spirit can alter your destiny is god to you. Similarly, anybody who stands as an intermediary between you and the supreme being or its accredited agents is god to you. Chi, in Igbo nomenclature, is your personal god who stands between you and your ancestral spiritual base.

In the culture of ancient civilizations, gods were catapulted form one role to another. They moved up and down the spiritual ladder as their services either progressed or declined. This technique was also adopted in Christianity. As Seth’s role waned, he transformed from the champion- in- chief to Satan in Egyptian mythology. The same scene surfaced in Christianity whose root was certainly Egyptian. Satan, the second-in-command to the supreme God was suddenly pulled down from the heavenly throne to the underworld, and he did so with about one- third- of angles.

It is appropriate to x-ray how Ndi-Igbo expelled themselves from the throne of spiritual power. During the time of my grandfather, the rate of death in Mgbakwu was catastrophic and the elders of the community decided to address that emerging threat. Messrs. Mofunanya Nwanpama and Aniche Ojobujo, the carriers of Agwu Umuologu and Agwu Uruotulu respectively, volunteered to handle the issue. They formed a spiritual hedge around the community cemetery by using a twine to circle the cemetery and by that Act, death ceased in the community. Unfortunately, our elders did not realize that in stopping death they were also stopping birth and the entire cycle of life. For seven years there was neither death nor birth, everybody stopped aging, the pregnant remained in constant state of pregnancy, the old could not proceed to join their ancestors, and finally, the state of immortality was established in the enclave. After seven years in the awful situation, the elders in their wisdom, decided that the trend be reversed. Two great spiritual heroes, obedient of course to the yawning of the community, reversed their actions and the normal course of life as established by nature began once more.

In like manner and during the civil war, the elders of the community summoned all Dibias in the community and directed them to stop federal troops from either invading them or passing through their soil. The action was necessitated by rumors that Federal troops were looting and raping women and children in any place they entered or passed through. Through divination, Nwanmor Udenwa, the carrier of Agwu Isi-Nkpume was selected to lead the exercise which also included carriers of Agwu-na-Assa Mgbakwu (seven most powerful Agwus in Mgbakwu). They assembled in the cemetery and after seven days of serious mystical rituals, they were through and successful too, by stopping federal troops from either invading Mgbakwu or passing through her. Federal troops were in Ebenebe, on our northern side and Isu-Anaocha, on our southern side, but Mgbakwu remained elusive.

The Ibo and Ashanti mystical exploits were fully highlighted in all occult and psychic literature between late 1800 and early 1900 but Igbo identity suddenly disappeared because modern Igbos discarded their root and preferred to hang on to the powers of Elijah and Elisha whose spiritual powers were far inferior to those of Mofunanya and Aniche. If the creative wheel could be suspended and subsequently reversed by Mofunanya and Aniche can anyone doubt their nearness to the source of existence. After reaching the Zenith of spiritual power, Igbo lost their bearing and were enslaved by the same people who served their ancestors. Fortunately, nature decreed that I should pass through the same platform as did Mofunanya and Aniche. I am hopeful that one day the grace of nature and the blessings of Chukwu will elevate me to assert the same authority, if not greater.


The Divine Continuity

Having looked at spiritual practices in Egypt and Greece, it is obvious that the teachings of Christianity borrowed a lot from them. Christianity, the official religion of the western world and her empire is certainly not different from what obtained in Egypt over 6,000 years ago. If Egyptian mythology evolved from paganism, then it is logical to assert that paganism walked through Egyptian belief system and Greek mythology to Roman religious practices unimpeded. In attempt to enhance cohesion within the roman empire, Roman kings not only fashioned the Christian creed but as well decreed the faith, with all alterations and embellishments, as the official state religion.

Even if it is argued that the Roman empire has since collapsed. It is doubtful whether this line of thought can be sustained because the papacy is still intact and exercises spiritual powers over Europe, North America and their colonies. Lastly, we can conclude with all certainty that Christianity is presently the last great grandson of paganism. As the great grandson, Christianity went through cultural evolution without shading off its core precepts. Names of many gods went through tribal and cultural modifications in conformity with principal languages of various ruling empires (Egyptian, Greek and Roman empires).

Kuu Lam Chee Brotherhood, the order of Avatars and Rope travelers, is the platform through which the teachings of Ditu, the incumbent Avatar, shall be externalized in the world of the living while the Red bible is the holy book of the order. Our teachings show remarkable departure from all belief systems of the world, both past and present. In similar manner, we introduced to the world the existence of a universal spiritual government under the leadership of the Avatar whose office is tenured, and went further to name the incumbent and his successor. Lastly, we distinguished between the universal law which every spirit must be bound to and the cultural law which is a function of the cultural template wherein all spirits-in-embodiment dwell in the Matter Kingdom.

Lastly, and most important too, I am under strict instruction to externalize the teachings of Ditu in an unabridged and unadulterated Form. In precise language, any spiritual pronouncement outside what is placed before you differs from the truth. If Messrs. Mofunanya and Aniche did stop death, birth and ageing, it does imply that one of the keys of the door of Nature and life was and is still in Igbo spiritual gallery. Secondly, if the take-off of the teachings of this holy order is feasible despite Igbo stupidity, naivety and recklessness, it is indeed a confirmation that the marriage between our ancestors and the global divine powers can never be dissolved. In like manner, if the word Chukwu, the true name of the absolute power, was appropriated through our traditional system, any attempt to circumvent the system in making request to Him will come to naught. On behalf of our ancestors, I ask all prodigal sons and daughters of Ndi-Igbo to return home to occupy their rightful seats in the council of spiritual powers.
