THE SEED OF ABRAHAM IS INDESTRUCTIBLE!
By Ima Nkanta
The fall of Haman, the Agagite, the evil one who singlehandedly plotted annihilation of the Jews, should serve fresh in the memories of those antagonizing Pastor Umo Eno today.
Haman was a popular official under the Persian king Artaxerxes I. He was an ego-tripping antagonist who bragged hard that nobody else except himself was best qualified to be crowned with royalty in Susan royal palace.
His naked lust for power and epaulette got him livid with hatred against the Jews, as he churned out falsehood after falsehood against the Jews. He was prepared to eliminate anyone who would not kowtow to nudge his over-fanned-up ego.
Mordecai the Jew at the gate stood on the side of righteousness and would not do Haman the obeisances. Infuriated, the evil one turned his fangs against Mordecai. He got the worst humiliation in return, as the God of the seed of Abraham rose in defence of Mordecai.
First, Haman was ordered to decorate Mordecai, the one he disdained and scorned at. Secondly, he was hanged on the same gallows he had erected to have Mordecai hung.
But before these disastrous incidents, Haman’s wife and some of his counsellors had advised him to pipe low but he rebuffed them. His wife told him he would fail because the seed of Abraham was the apple of God’s eye.
“And Haman told Zeresh his wife and all his friends everything that had befallen him. Then said his wise men and Zeresh his wife unto him, If Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou shalt not prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him.” Esther 6:13
Haman went ahead to erect the gallows of death but God’s mercy swung the subject to the favour of His covenant child – Mordecai, while the wicked Haman and his household were hunged.
Those who have labelled falsehoods, hatched the cockatrice eggs, swirled in deceit and raised demonic altars for enchantments must know that Pastor Umo Covenant Eno is the seed of Abraham. Evil devices cannot take him down.
Where’s Mr. Akan Ekpe Okon today? Where are his cheerleaders who once upon a time rambled rambunctiously on their road to infamy? Where’s OBA? Where’s Mike Enyong alias Babantan? Aren’t the mighty falling in quick succession?
Paul the apostle wondered rhetorically: “Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?” 1 Corinthians 1:20
I can boldly assert that all of these evil machinations against Pastor Umo Eno are but ladders for his continuous triumphs. Pastor Umo Eno is the seed of Abraham. He received Jesus Christ at 9 under the strict doctrinal tutelage of his late mother and has since kept the fire burning in his bones. He’s completely redeemed and justified. He’s too defended to be vulnerable to the vagaries of the cruel.
The seed of Abraham prevails!
