The Fatum BankWritten by Adeolu Oluade
Continued from page 1
It is by faith in God and his word that one receives his grace. The subject of faith and its connection with destiny has been discussed in both 'Rhema Island' and 'The precious coin'. The issue of God's word is highlighted in 'Seedtime and harvest'. The treasures are also called 'the unsearchable riches of Christ': Eph.3:8(KJV) "Unto me, who am less than least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among Gentiles unsearchable riches of Christ;" These treasures are available only in Christ;and to anyone in Christ: 2 Cor.5:17(KJV) "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." In Christ are hidden riches of wisdom and knowledge: Col.2:3(KJV) "In whom are hid all treasures of wisdom and knowledge." Wisdom is essential in fulfillment of destiny: Prov.4:7(KJV) "Wisdom is principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding." The subject of wisdom has been clearly analysed in 'Smartville'. It is closely linked with knowledge and understanding: Prov.2:6(KJV) "For LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding." The treasures are also called 'the riches of his glory': Eph.3:16(KJV) "That he would grant you, according to riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in inner man;" God's glory is also connected to divine destiny as proclaimed in 'Gloryland'. Above all,the greatest treasure available to every customer in 'the Fatum Bank' is God himself: Genesis 15:1(KJV) "After these things word of LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward." The benefit of God as one's shield against enemies of one's destiny has been discussed in 'The viral war'.
In conclusion,every reader is solemnly invited to join clientele of 'the Fatum Bank' today-without further delay!!!
1 Cor.3:21-23(KJV) "Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your's;" "Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your's;" "And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's."

WHERE IS THE LORD GOD OF ELIJAH?Written by Irvin L. Rozier
Continued from page 1
Elijah's mantle fell from him, Elisha took it up, smote waters with it, and said "Where is LORD God of Elijah?". The LORD God of Elijah answered Elisha's prayer, and waters parted.
The LORD God of Elijah and Elisha is our LORD God. His power and authority are still same today as yesterday. I know it would appear foolish to some for a grown man to strike waters with his coat, yet this act of faith created a great miracle. The question that keeps going through my mind is "Where is LORD God of Elijah?" We need him more today than we did yesterday. What does it take to have some of spirit of Elijah? My prayer is that LORD God of Elijah would show himself strong in our behalf.
2 Chronicles 16 verse 9 "For eyes of LORD run to and fro throughout whole earth, to shew himself strong in behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars."
