NORTH KOREA PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.

NORTH KOREA  PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. As I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power." - President Donald John Trump. ICHEOKU says the Michelin Tire midget at Pyongyang is definitely courting trouble and messing with the wrong man. He probably thinks Barack Obama the redline president is still in office; but unbeknownst to him there is a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald John Trump and he does not mess around. Hopefully China can rein in the little man before he commits mass suicide with his North Korean people.

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER
"When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that." - Senator Charles Schumer, Senior Senator from the State of New York and Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate. ICHEOKU says the statement spoke volume and it spoke for itself. Finally it seems the Democrats have finally turned the corner and are now ready to face up to their abysmal performance in the last presidential election by acknowledging that the American people indeed choose Trump over their Hillary Clinton. Thankfully, they will also now rest their "Russians Did It" cockamamie and find a message they can present to the people and for the good of the country.. Time to move the process forward is now as American people did not buy into the crap of a Russian collusion which they tried unsuccessfully to sell to them.

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS MCGREGOR

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS McGREGOR

ICHEOKU says August 26 is the day history will be made as two of the world's most interesting athletes square off in the ring. Boxing champion Floyd MayWeather and mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor, will fight on August 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada. ICHEOKU says not in a position yet to place bet on who will win the fight. Salute


BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY
ICHEOKU says the time has come and the time is now for the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra to be allowed to choose their self governance and exit from Nigeria going forward.. A referendum on the future of Biafra is a legitimate demand of the people and it is their right to so do. The people of the Nation of Biafra want to of their own way because of the hostilities from other member nations of Nigeria. Let the United Nations order a referendum and let the people decide in their own Biafraexit.

PDJT ISSUES VERDICT ON ISLAMIST TERRORISTS


"There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result. Terrorism's devastation of life will continue to spread, peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence, and the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered. If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God." - President Donald John Trump.


BBOB: BRING BACK OUR BIAFRA

ICHEOKU says it is worth fighting for, self determination and it is not a crime for a people to aspire for self governance. Indigenous Peoples of Biafra are marching forward and hopefully they will soon get to the promised land. Viva Biafra.
#BringBackOurBiafra.

WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE - STEVE JOBS

“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” - SJ

EVIL CANNOT BE TRULY DESTROYED.

ONLY THE POOR WISH THEY HAD STUFF?

“I’m not that interested in material things. As long as I find a good bed that I can sleep in, that’s enough.” - Nicolas Berggruem, the homeless billionaire.

CHRIST THE KING STATUE IN POLAND, THOU SHALL NOT MAKE AN IMAGE IN MY NAME?

Statue of Jesus Christ in Swiebodzin, Poland
The spate of edifying monuments being erected by Christians all over the world to honor Jesus Christ are growing daily in number and scale. The latest of such human gratification of self-ability is the Christ the King Jesus statue in Swiebodzin Poland, courtesy of a catholic priest, 78 year old Sylwester Zawadzki.


The statue which took five years to complete, at a total height of 167 feet, now dwarfs both the Rio de Janerio Brazil's Christ the Redeemer statue at 125 feet and the Cristo de la Concordia in Cochabamba, Bolivia at 133 feet, which use to be the tallest of such Jesus statues in the world in that order. The statue weighs 440 tons and is visible from Highway A2 linking Warsaw and Berlin.


Icheoku says what an awesome work of art that the Polish were able to put up at Swiebodzin; but queries whatever happened to the biblical injunction 'thou shall not make any image in my likeness?' Or perhaps the argument could be made that it was his father, God the Father, who abhors and forebode image being made in his name and that baby-Jesus later turned adult-Jesus at 33, would not mind being honored in such manner? Being the affable guy he was and still is, Icheoku believes that Jesus Christ wouldn't mind that his statue is now the king of all statues in the world, including New York's Lady Liberty at 121 feet high as well as the other Jesus statue at 133 feet high Cristo de la Concordia in Cochabamba, Bolivia.


Further, the biblical injunction was purpose-specific that such images are not worshipped if made, so it appears from reading the scriptural lines that it will be ok to still make images provided they are not worshipped in place of the only living God who is both jealous and not entertaining of any rivalry or of divided attention whatsoever. The injunction in specifically mentioned "an idol or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on earth beneath or in the water under the earth" for purposes of worship (Exodus 20:4-5; Leviticus 26:1). So plus minus it is either you make an image and not worship it or you do not make any image at all; so God left the choice to humanity which the Polish people have so far exercised and made their 'Christ the King' statue. Deuteronomy 5:8, 27:15 says "cursed is the man who makes an idol or a molten image, an abomination to the Lord, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and sets it up in secret. so it appears that the Polish are safe from this curse as they did not keep their Christ the King statue in secret but set it high up in a public place where it is very visible.


Contextually, these passages are dealing with the same subject matter - an admonition against worshipping of images as God does not want people bowing down before such images and worshiping them as God or God-alternates. Provided these statues do not become objects of worship, being public artifacts to which the general populace could become familiar with and thereby risk falling into their idol worship, it appears to be ok for what they represent - a reminder and memorial of our Lord Jesus Christ. So it would appear ok and appropriate to have an image made of anything and anybody including Jesus Christ provided it is not worshipped in any form as God or God-alternate. Therefore the Christ the King Jesus statue in Poland as well as others in Brazil, Bolivia and elsewhere are sanctioned by God, provided humanity does not mistake them for God himself or his son and bow down to worship them. So once this fine-line is isolated and distinguished, then it is ok to have the 164feet Christ the King Statue in Swiebodzin Poland as a God approved edification of his son, Jesus Christ.


But the jury is still out on the appropriateness or otherwise of the project and whether the $1.7million spent on this statue was money well spent or could have been used in a more profitable venture like building schools or feeding the Polish hungry? But the priest behind  the construction of the project seems to have his own secret agenda to take Europe back to Christ as according to him, "He will be the greatest teacher of the faith and Europe needs preachers like Christ". So through this, all those Islamists trying so hard to Islamize Europe has been put on notice that Christ the King is watching their actions and will not allow them take over his continental Europe. Icheoku says, luckily too, Poland is not America where the ACLU would have shut down the project on grounds of secularism arguing that such gargantuan Christ the King is a an unfair propagation of Christianity above other religions in a public place. Finally, what would the crusading Islamists say or do with a towering Jesus Christ keeping his watchful eyes over their activities in his Poland, albeit Europe. Icheoku says this edifying statue is a bold statement that rapid Islamization of Europe would not be tolerated by Poland and stopped at Swiebodzin Poland's watershed!
