This Year, Fish will Consumed Fish, Rivers Will Swallow Rivers -Prophet Odedoyin Olawumi Ezekiel Revealed

Published

on

By

Prophet Odedoyin Olawumi Ezekiel, the general overseer of Christ For All Souls Ministry was amongst the first set of clerics to release new year prophecies for Nigeria and the world on Saturday 1st of January, 2022.

The cleric, in separate announcements, made the prophecies for Nigeria known during the church annual celebration that took place in Osogbo.

Prophet Odedoyin’s prophecies were grouped into five categories: Nigeria, world, Africa, personal and the Christians.

He revealed that he foresees that the world will experience turbulence and God’s Vengeance will be upon the leaders of the world.

In his words, he said “God says, I should tell the world that he never breaks promises, and this year, he has raised some people from around the world to uphold his judgment because this year will be a year of vengeance for those who have trampled on innocent people’s rights. He promised to avenge from the leaders to the followers”

“God revealed to me that there will be bloodshed, Kidnapping and killing of many people this year. There will be many laws contrary to God’s will to work against my people and there will be starvation. Many nations’ economies will go into recession. Helps that did not come from God will surface and Satan will bring out a plate for people to eat and drink from.”

“And for them to know that he remains God many diseases will spring up and some of the ones that are on ground already will continue to kill people. God also said he will render some people in authority powerless and many of them will be disgraceful while this year will be full of turbulence in the world. And for those that belong to God in the world,  that he has washed in his blood, he promised to send them from one nation to another to preach the gospel. Many warriors and powerful ones will fall this year, only those that do God’s will, will not fall this year.”

“God said he will bring among those that are antagonists of his gospel to preach his Gospel. The World will be deceived through the treasure of the world. And many strange powers will come from the devil, warriors of this generation be prepared. God said he will elevate, uphold and allow Satan to enter into some churches that you called church of God but they are not.”

When he was asked about the African continent, he said “God said he will pass through the land of Africa and he will divulge many secrets. He will kill on one side and elevate on the other side. those that pretend they are serving God but they are not will be exposed”

“Many nations will kick against their leaders in Africa. There will be a true change in Africa and things will be going accordingly. Some people will live in regret and any council that tries to rise without my knowledge will be put to shame and disgraced.”

On what God is saying about Nigeria, the man of God said, the country should pray as God said he will continue to shake the country, starting from the government, the political stalwart and those that are working against his will.

In his words, prophet Odedoyin said ” God said he will continue to shake this country. He will start from the government house. His sword will move from there to the National Assembly. He said he will uphold his law and he will punish those that go against it as political leaders will drink each others blood”

“He said any government that refuses to acknowledge him, even if they work they will have nothing to show for it. The government of this nation doesn’t know God and they are not following God’s Will and if they continue that way God said he will punish them but if they repent he will accept them and deliver them.”

“He also said, many of them that put themselves in a leading position will be demoted and some of them will be kidnapped while many of them will be cut short”

On security, the prophet said “This year security will be worse than before even the ones in authority will not be safe and many will be locked up illegally.”

“God said if they run to me I will turn things around for good because among the politicians he has seen some children of light and he will bring them out.”

“We should pray because this year fish will eat fish, rivers will swallow rivers, politicians will deal with one another deceitfully.”

And as for the christians, “God said, I should tell those that belong to him, that he remains their God. And he assured them of his protection and he opened many sources for them this year.”
“He said I should tell his people that there will be signs and wonders this year and he will empower them. There will be joy in their premises, and this year shall be a year of harvest for those who work with him”

“He also said, he is the vine with many fruits and he will bring forth sweetness from one side and bitterness on the other side for people who refuse to do his will. Some will be cast away and only those that cling unto me will receive many  from me.” He concluded.

Meanwhile, according to the Prophet Odedoyin, God gave his watchword saying “This  is the watchword that will be your weapon for this year, it is a year that you will work for God and God will prosper your way, said the Lord. And the watchword is taken from the holy book of Isaiah 60:1 which says, “Arise, shine, for you light has come and  the glory of God is risen upon you”
