This bitter pill is for those people who are eager to say or type "Amen" in order to obtain results, instead of working for the results. They call it faith. Well, God says, "Faith without work is dead." And to say that faith without work is dead means that faith without work does not exist.

Losing sight of reality in the face of illusion can be very easy, especially when illusion seemingly offers on a platter of gold what reality offers on a platter of clay. This is why more and more people are becoming delusional by the day.

Maybe there are results that can be obtained by saying or typing "Amen," but definitely there are results that can never be obtained, and will never be obtained unless they are worked for. Such results are merits and therefore will never be bestowed on those that don't deserve them.

To illustrate, I will use peace as an example. There are different types of peace, but I am referring to a particular type of peace, namely, the peace the Galilean gave to his disciples on that fateful night before he suffered, and warned them that the world can not give it nor understand it because it surpasses all human understanding.

This actually indicates that whatever is the nature of this peace, no man understands it, no man can understand it, and no man will ever understand it. Therefore any claim by any human being to understand it is a sheer pretense. This peace, whatever it is, cannot be obtained by saying or typing "Amen". It is extremely meritorious!

At the birth of Mary's child, angels appeared and announced this peace as they sang, "Peace to men of Goodwill ." [Luke 2:14]

So, Goodwill is an essential quality one must have if he must have this peace, the same is applicable in the struggle for the restoration of Biafra. 

We see Jesus talk of this peace as he commissioned his disciples. Without mincing words, he said to them,  "When you enter a house, first say, 'Peace to this house.' If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; if not, it will return to you." [Luke 10:5,6]

Again, there is a condition: a person must be a man of Peace to receive this peace.

Paul, writing to the Galatians, said, "Peace to all who follow this rule." [Galatians 6:16]

Again, there's a stark condition: following this rule.

If these conditions are not met, this peace will not and cannot be obtained hence our struggle continues to suffer set back because the focus is lost when there is no hunger to remain resolute and formidable irrespective of the number of "Amens" said or typed. Oh yes! A prophecy given to Isaiah says, "There's no peace for the wicked." [Isaiah 48:22]

The wicked are those who don't have goodwill; those who are not men of peace; those who don't follow this rule. They may experience the peace that is the absence of mental stress or anxiety; they may experience the peace that is harmonious relations (absence of dispute); they may experience the peace that is the absence of war, but they will never obtain that peace which Jesus gives, that no man understands, that no man can comprehend it's nature.

As a matter of fact, when the conditions are not met, instead of the desired result, unpleasant results will inevitably occur. For instance, the spirit inspiring Paul led him to write, "If any man loves not the Lord, let him be Anathema Maranatha." [1 Corinthians 16:22]

"Anathema Maran Atha" is a Greek phrase that means "Accursed as the Lord comes."

So, if a person fails to love the Lord by keeping his commandments, the person will inevitably be accused as the Lord comes. If he like let him say or type "Amen" to every "blessing" pronounced or written by "men of God." without works as the case of Biafra Restoration. All hail Biafra.
