God’s Greatest Assignment for YOU and ME IS? + Eagle Insights on Israel – Arab Peace deal and President Trump – Does that have any prophetic timeline significance? How do you know the father of all Antichrist when he shows up – See the 10 facts? Find out in today’s post Part 1 and Part 2 on Sunday
Friends, I resumed my weekly exercise session yesterday after a one month plus break and I didn’t have enough strength left in me yesterday to send you the Wednesday weekly post hence this post is coming to you today. Thank God for strength and better late than never.
Now before we glean on answers to What does God want most from YOU and ME? God’s Greatest Asset is? God’s Greatest Assignment for YOU and ME is? We bring you Eagle Insight but not immediately on Israel – Arab Peace deal and President Trump – Does that have any prophetic timeline significance? How do you know the father of all Antichrist when he shows up? But will review what we received before through the eye of the Spirit, what is happening now, and what we must do to prepare for the future.
In our weekly post of Wednesday June 17th, 2020 post, I mentioned by prophetic insight as follows:
“I am sensing in my spirit, that COVID-19 will begin to diminish by September 2020. I didn’t say end, but I said, “diminish”. This is not time to throw caution to the wind yet because it is not over. Secondly, for us Christians, God wants us to dig deeper roots in Him – It is our time for serious preparation- This is not time to run around like Martha who was so busy with serving Jesus but had no relationship with Jesus read Luke 10:40-42. Also, it is not time to think that until you get into a church environment that is where the real worship is taking place like the Samaritan in John 4 read and meditate on John 4:19-24 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)”
In can get the full insight via link hereunder.
I see that some countries have begun opening up churches and public places as the threat are radically reduced.
I counsel the body of believers to take inventory of what worked during the lockdown as you meet, what didn’t work, and should it happen again, what will be the best strategy going forward.
I will also encourage you all to use this opportunity to bond with your brothers and sisters in the faith and strengthen those that were impacted negatively by the lockdown because this is a very short window as lockdown will be reintroduced very, very shortly because the pandemic is not yet over. It will pick up again.
To understand how to pray about the pandemic and God’s intervention, we must ask ourselves what is God’s plan? What side is God on so that we can pray His heart? It is pretty much ok to ask God for mercy and at the same time, it is critically important to ask God to deal with the state of our hearts, asking Him to show us who we are so we can know our true state and repent sincerely.
Prophetically, I must say that God has permitted this for the purification of His bride – the Church, He is watching His children as the pandemic rages to see genuine repentance and a return to Him. He wants the Golden calves – Idols (Exodus 32) we have erected in the center of our hearts to come down and bow to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in our hearts. I did not say He caused it, I said He permitted it. Who caused it and where it came from is immaterial and of less significance compared to what He wants achieved by it was what we should focus on so that we can derive the benefit that accrue as a result of the setback. Just like Jesus death should be more important to us than who killed Him. Hence, His statement Jesus made on the cross that, “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34
This is not a time for celebration but a time of consecration – Separation, setting oneself aside as a vessel of honor unto God that He can use for His good purpose in this end time. We will go into that later.
Let’s return to eagle insight on Israeli, Arab peace deal and Trump of America.
By the way, if you followed our post of Wednesday, June 10th, 2020 where we highlighted the prophetic significance of Black Live Matter (BLM) Movement, we mentioned in that post that Donald Trump was going to win the November 2020 election because God wants Him there not because Trump is perfect but because he fits into God’s plan for God’s people and world event at this time in prophetic history. I still see Trump winning this election..Facts have not changed yet, so watch out, except God decides otherwise this time around.

There are news making rounds that because Trump facilitated the peace deal between the Arabians and Israelis, he must be the antichrist.
Nothing can be further from the truth. The fact of the matter is that the Arabians wanted the deal with Israel and needed a facilitator that is on their side ever since President Obama signed the JPOC agreement with Iran by lifting sanctions. The Arabians felt it was a stab in their back by Americans – a betrayal. Since then, Israel became a friend because they have a common enemy in Iran who wants the Arabians off the map. It is a long-drawn war between Sunnis and Shiites. Sunnis, the largest group represented by Saudi Arabia and the Shiites headed by Iran.
So lets look briefly at what are the basic similarities and difference in belief of the Sunni and Shiites Muslims?
Although Sunni and Shiite Muslims are both sects of the Islamic faith, the differences between these two groups stem from conflicting religious beliefs.
Political conflict separates the groups as well Saudi Arabia, a Sunni nation, and Shiite Iran continue to compete for regional influence in the Arab world. Amidst anti-government protests and car bombings, Sunni leaders in Saudi Arabia have accused their Shiite populations of loyalty to Iran.
One thing that Sunnis and Shiites have in common is that they are the two largest denominations of the Islamic faith. Additionally, both Sunnis and Shiites believe that the Prophet Muhammad established the Islam religion during the seventh century.
The schism between the two sects began after the death of Muhammad in 632 A.D., at which point a dispute over the identity of Muhammad’s religious successor caused the followers of Islam to divide into Sunnis and Shiites.
The Sunnis believe that Muhammad had no rightful heir and that a religious leader should be elected through a vote among the Islamic community’s people. They believe that Muhammad’s followers chose Abu Bakr, Muhammad’s close friend and advisor, as his successor.
Shiites believe that only Allah, the God of the Islam faith, can select religious leaders, and that therefore, all successors must be direct descendants of Muhammad’s family. They maintain that Ali, Muhammad’s cousin and son-in-law, was the rightful heir to the leadership of the Islam religion after Muhammad’s death.
Another contentious religious difference between Shiite and Sunni Muslims concerns the Mahdi, which is Arabic for “guided one.” Both groups perceive the Mahdi as the sole ruler of the Islamic community. But while the Sunnis hold that the Mahdi has not yet been born and anticipate his arrival, the Shiites believe that the Mahdi was born in 869 A.D. and will return to Earth under Allah’s orders.
This explains why the first foreign travel of Trump when he took over the reign of office was to visit Saudi Arabia by invitation of the Saudis to address the bridge. So, watch out for Saudi Arabia signing the peace deal with Israel as well in the coming days if all go according to plan.
So the peace deal we are seeing today was triggered by the Arabians and not president Trump.
Trump was asked to midwife the process so that no one losses face in calling for peace with Israel!
The bible did not say a nation will sign the peace deal with Israel but the antichrist who is a person.
We need to understand some facts about the antichrist so that we can decide when He shows up, assuming if the Lord tarries in coming and we are still here to witness it. Of course we have had antichrist all along but the chief is yet to appear because the Holy Spirit is still at work in the lives of people.. call it a long rope and only God knows when we reach the end of the rope.
Let Us See 10 Facts About the antichrist.
There are more than ten… these are the most obvious.
1) He Claims to be God and is Worshiped
“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God“ (2 Thes 2:3-4).
2) He Will Blaspheme God
Revelation 13:6 says, “And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven.”
3) He Will Display Miraculous Powers
Revelation 13:13 as he “performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven, to the earth in full view of the people.”
4) The Anti-Christ Comes Back to Life
“ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived“ (Rev 13:14). What a feat that will cause many to be motivated by the sight of this “fatal wound [that] had been healed“; so much so that many will worship him (Rev 13:12).
5) The Anti-Christ Rules in Full Authority
For three and a half years he “was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation“ (Rev 13:5,7).
6) The Anti-Christ Will Control the World’s Economy
“forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name“ (Rev 13:16-17).
7) The Anti-Christ Desecrates God’s Temple Jesus: “Therefore, when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place’ (whoever reads, let him understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not to back to get his clothes. “But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath, For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no nor ever shall be“ (Matt 24:15-21).
8) The Anti-Christ’s Attempted Destruction of Israel Satan and all of those under his rule have always sought the destruction of the Jews. The end times see this brought to fruition. In Daniel 11:40-41 is says, “And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He shall enter also into the glorious land [Jerusalem], and many [countries] shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, [even] Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.” This happens after another treaty is broken. At first he promises to help be Jerusalem’s savior but he, as always, is a liar and the truth is not in him (Dan 9:27). He breaks one treaty after another and makes one promise after another, breaking them all. It is obvious that his power comes from the father of lies, the Devil.
9) Causes Earth’s Armies to Fight Against Christ “saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army“ (Rev 19:19).
10) Final Destiny in Lake of Fire
“And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
Having said that, every Christian must not that these are very interesting times and we must of necessity keep watch for our redemption draws near than when we started the journey with Jesus Christ.
In our post of September 15th, on the 6th day of our prayer and fasting, we highlighted the need for consecration and you can access that by visiting this link https://www.otakada.org/day-6-september-15-2020-a-prayer-prayer-of-total-dedication-consecration-and-submission-to-god/
We might not understand the gravity of the need for consecration until we are able to answer the following questions on today’s title – What does God want most from YOU and ME? God’s greatest Asset IS? Gods greatest Assignment for You IS?
These questions will take us deeper into the word consecration as we start off today and end on Sunday.
So, What does God want most from YOU and ME?
God wants a commitment to consecration.. a commitment to say, “Lord, I am made to bring you pleasure through my life. Hence the first commandment says, “You shall love the Lord Your God with all your heart, your soul and your mind.”
King James Version
20 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
King James Version
5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
King James Version
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
What then is Gods Greatest Asset?
Gods greatest asset is You and ME. God will give anything away for our sakes..
King James Version
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
King James Version
11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
King James Version
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Next Sunday, we shall take up this next question Gods Greatest Assignment for YOU and ME IS?
So be on standby on Sunday as we bring the answers to you. Until then, remain blessed, remain Joyful, and remain in Peace which only Christ provides!
