Early today morning, April 20, 2020, the Lord took me in a dream to a classroom setting. All lectures/lessons had been concluded, and all was set for examination to commence.
Thereafter, I came out of the classroom, with the mind of going to the house to pick something.

However, there was no way to get to the house because a roadblock had been mounted by armed soldiers.

When I told one of armed soldiers at the road block that I wanted to get home to pick something, he replied sternly, “NO”. At that point, I woke up from my sleep.

As I went on my knees to pray about the dream, the Lord told me He had allowed the Lockdown we are currently experiencing, so that we can undergo SPIRITUAL EXAMINATION.

While the world governments are preoccupied with physical examination to checkmate the spread of corona virus,

the Lord says we should be occupied with that which concerns our spiritual well-being. Just as the world is clamouring for physical checkups against corona virus, the Lord is urging us to give ourselves spiritual checkups.

2 Corinthians 13:5 says,

Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?-unless indeed you are disqualified

The lockdown, the Lord is saying to us, should be utilised to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith – if we are really Christians as we claim or merely imposters.

  • This is the time to Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong (1 Corinthians 16:13).
  • This is the time to cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God (2 Corinthians 7:1).
  • This is the time to actively seek to grow closer to God, and not to draw farther away from Him.
  • This is the time to ask ourselves whether we are walking according to the gospel that we profess.

After the lockdown, that is, the time God is giving us for the SPIRITUAL EXAMINATION, the Lord says,

He will release the results of the SPIRITUAL EXAMINATION of each and every one of us, that life will never be the same again. The outcome of the SPIRITUAL EXAMINATION, would be a determinant of the kind of life we will experience after the lockdown.

Dear people of God, we wish to draw our attention for the third time to the following counsel we gave to us while the lockdown was to commence in Delta State on April 1, 2020:

Beloved in Christ, let’s seize the opportunity the lockdown provides to utilize to the maximum our QUIET TIME (personal devotion), COUPLE ALTAR (husband and wife having devotion together), and the FAMILY ALTAR (parents, children, etc living in the home having devotion together). It is time to Stoke the fire of these three altars (personal, couple and family) where the fire has simmered down, while we await Jesus’ second coming’.

As we conclude this message, we urge you to know

…that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, [19] but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot (1 Peter 1:18-19).


Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ”(1 Thessalonians 5:23).



+Christian, Warri.
