"...it is much easier for a horse to pass through a needle than for rich men to enter into heaven," said Jesus Christ Emmanuel in Bible. Let's remember that Jesus died wretched in Bible. He later ascended into heaven where he finally assumed an exulted position, sitting at the right hand of God according to Bible.
What I know is that the term "heaven" is used in Bible to mean above or the top in reality. Jesus died poor because the rich did not see any need to support his ministry with their riches. So, he got angry with every one of them and started to place curses upon them in every way.
Insight told the wise that Jesus was born to rule Israel as King of the Promised land. Divinity sent him as Chief builder, and his mission was to transform Israel into heaven in reality. He needed help from the rich to enable him build heaven on earth but they (the rich) did not respond positively. They failed to support his mission. That was why he had to curse them in every way.
The curses showed that there was a great irony going on those days. Kings were trekking while fools were riding on horses under the Sun. Things like corruption and evil happened to turn the world upside down. Wealth and riches were not made based on merit. Wise ones like Jesus and John the Baptist remitted to live in wealth but they were poor due to the irony of life.
Lack of support from the rich forced Jesus to abandon his mission for good. It means that the rich could not inherit the real heaven (paradise) of Israel because they failed to support Jesus in the building. The master plan of the heaven was with him (Jesus) and it was not possible for anybody to build it without him being involved bodily as the Chief builder of heaven on earth.
I do not have to tell one that what I have said here is now happening in Biafra similarly. The people are still longing to liberate their nation without really knowing that their liberator or savior (Jesus of Biafra) had been nailed on the Cross. It is a thing of mind which can hardly be understood by fools, ignoramus and mediocrities.
What I know is that general activities, reactions and manners of the people show that they crucified Barr Ralph Uwazurike (the savior) in their wicked minds. The poor savior had raised from the death, and he has equally ascended into heaven of Nigeria popularly known to the people as "Aso Rock" in Abuja. He is now seated at right hand of the Lord (Mr President - Goodluck E. Jonathan) of the dead country, Nigeria. We hear him everywhere campaigning for the Lord. His candid advice to the people is that they should support Goodluck Jonathan's re-election in 2015 since they failed to give their backing to him in MASSOB. Sorry to Biafran fools in limbo of downhill! Such is life!
