In April 2021, news broke out of the death of the lady called Ada Jesus. Looking at her young age of only 22 years, the death of Ada Jesus really caused tears to flow freely from the eyes of many Nigerians and beyond.
Yes, it is unfortunate that Ada Jesus is no more, however, we shall be looking at the bitter lessons to learn of her death. The sad story of what led to the death of Ada Jesus actually calls for a sober reflection for us that are still living.
This is because there are some valuables, even though some bitter lessons we all need to learn, from her painful death. In the first instance, I wish to point out that what happened to Ada Jesus could as well happen to any other person like you and me if we happen to be among those that run their mouth to confront spiritual authorities with false and unfounded allegations.
As said, the death of Ada Jesus should serve as a bitter lesson for us all, especially those that allow the devil to use them in talking rubbish against some men/women of God, and not only men of God but men/women that are spiritual authorities.
In Nigeria for instance, there are people that publish information or make videos about some men of God, even though they know deep down themselves, that such pieces of information are false, but they wish to use such false information to gain social media popularity and followership.
The late Ada Jesus as she was called, like some other young Nigerian men and women, thought that it was business as usual as she boldly and consciously confronted two heavy-duty spiritual authorities. One was a witch doctor and another an anointed man of God, by the name prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje who she was bold to make some allegations against.
Please regarding her allegations, I wish to point out that we are not God or Holy Spirit, so none of us is in a position to confirm whether the allegations are true or false. For that reason, we should be extremely careful of our judgment of that case.
In that viral video, Ada Jesus alleged that prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje connived with the actress, Rita Edochie to be stage managing, or faking healing and miracles.
Please one important thing that should be at the back of our mind is that no one can say for sure where the arrow that struck Ada Jesus came from. It may have come from the altar of the witch doctor or the altar of prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje who many viewed to be at the center of the controversy.
Every finger pointed at prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje because of being highly grieved in the spirit, which made him to vocally made some dangerous utterances or declarations against the said, Ada Jesus.
Looking at the whole scenario, personally, I had earlier decided never to get involved in the matter, but later decided otherwise to write this article to point out some bitter, but valuable lessons we ought to learn from what happened to Ada Jesus.
The first of such lessons is more or less a warning we should heed of the grave danger in blaspheming against the Holy Spirit, which according to Jesus is called an unpardonable sin. You could recall that prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje was pointing out that Ada Jesus blasphemed against the Holy Spirit
Yes, you should also recall that Jesus warned against blasphemy against the Holy Spirit in Mathew 12:31-32. Here, the Pharisees, out of jealousy had attributed the power Jesus was using to cast out demons to be the power of Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons
That accusation can be seen in Mathew 12;24, and it says, “Now when the Pharisees heard it, they said, “This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.”
However, Jesus reacting to that accusation by the Pharisees made a profound statement or gave a stern warning in Mathew 12:31-32 saying, “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven to men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.
“Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.
From the above passage to blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is very grievous as Jesus said is an unpardonable sin, the result of which the person pays dearly for such action of blasphemy.
From the foregoing, what if that allegation of Ada Jesus against Prophet Odumeje, that he is a fake pastor and that he was faking and stage managing miracles were false, then what Ada Jesus did was denying the works of the Holy Spirit through prophet Odumeje and as such is a blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
I said this because going by what Jesus said above, “whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come”. This is a spiritual matter which none of our sentiment or utterances are capable of reversing.
Of a truth, if Ada Jesus knew the gravity of her allegations, that it could cause her agony and eventual death, I doubt if she would have ever opened her mouth to make those allegations against an anointed man of God.
For that reason, we that are still living, we should be very careful with our utterances against men of God or spiritual authorities as some people specialize in talking rubbish against some men of God and spiritual authorities that are backed by heavy-duty altars.
The reason is that we are never in a position to be a true judge as to who is a genuine or otherwise man/woman of God. What if such men of God like prophet Odumeje is doing exactly as the Holy Spirit is leading him.
In other words, to open our mouths anyhow because of our personal judgment or personal opinion could be dangerous. What if we are wrong in our judgment, that is, what if our opinions are wrong? Like Ada Jesus, what if her allegations were wrong or false?
It is obvious, wrong judgments on our part in matters which we are not even truly sure of can incur the wrath and judgment of God. So what if Ada Jesus suffered as a result of God’s judgment on her? It is foolish not to learn what happened to other people.
It shows that we as well if eventually, we happen to be wrong in our judgment and opinion, that we can as well suffer the same fate as Ada Jesus.
What I am saying is because of what the book of Ecclesiastes 10:8 says, “whoso breaketh a hedge, a serpent shall bite him”. That is to say, any of us like Ada Jesus, once we break the hedge over our lives, it could eventually lead to a poisonous serpent biting us.
Moreover, 2 chronicles 36:16 gave us a warning saying, “But they mocked the messengers of God, despised His words, and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against His people, till there was no remedy. NK JV
Also, please take it or leave it, 1 Chronicle 16:21-22 stated that there are men and women, which God said that He permitted, no man to do them wrong and as well as rebuked kings for their sakes, saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.” NK JV.
What if for the sake of God’s anointed prophet Odumeje that God rebuked Ada Jesus? Do you think that you will survive the rebuke of God, or that God will allow you to do any prophet of God any harm? Please learn from the bitter lesson of Ada Jesus. Shalom!
