Satan or the Devil doesn’t exist in Original African culture, so stop equating it to Esu/Ekwensu.
Yoruba, Igbo, Igala and all other Original African philosophies are based on natural duality. Meaning everything has a good and bad side even Almighty God, so you can never have a wholly evil or good figure.
African spirituality and beliefs are based on universal science and not just impossible myths, so just as you can’t separate negative from positive in an atom, the smallest particle, you can not separate it in all life and the universe. Even if we had a figure called devil, he will be both good and bad.
The African philosophy is that there is good and bad in everybody and heart, and it is up to the person to choose whatever he does, and will be paid back. This is based on the cycle of life, the laws of retributive justice. And it is the highest moral standard known to Man.
Unlike Abrahamic dogma that allows a person to abdicate responsibility for their actions by claiming it was the devil temptations or machinations. No, you are the God and Devil!
So who is Esu and other African spiritual entities misconstrued as Satan or Devil? In a ploy to mentally enslave us, they labelled Esu, our spiritual entity, that carries our messages to God as Satan/Devil, while Jesus their spiritual entity that carries their own messages to God as son of God.
The irony of it all is that the letter J didn’t exist until after 100yrs the Catholics had landed and started slavery in West Africa. The name of the Jewish messiah/messenger of God was Yeshua before 1624, which after the introduction of J became Joshua.
So why the change especially when considering that this name had existed for 1500yrs. Was it a case that on getting to the true Garden of Eden in West Africa, where they relished and wanted to copy its sugarcane, gold and people, they converted to Esu, Yorubas messenger to God, who had blessed us with more than jedi jedi milk and honey of Joshua’s God?
The similarity between Esu and Jesus can’t be ignored because the Mediterranean peoples don’t pronounce J as a first letter in a word nor S as a last letter of a word, so Jesus is Esu.
Astrologically, they are both represented by the planet Mercury, the planet next to the Sun which represents God, and there is no way to God(Sun) without passing through the first planet Mercury or bitting around it.
The most annoying thing is our people that adopted Abrahamic beliefs couldn’t look for good comparisons like Jesus is Esu, and their racial inferiority complex had to make them match our best with the Abrahamic worst.
Ultimately, it is up to you to free yourself from mental slavery as Esu is the key to our information Retrieval system, the oldest knowledge bank also known as Ifa-Afa-Iha-Eha-Fa, shared by all Indigenous Original African groups in South and Middlebelt Nigeria, as well as across the Africa. From it came modern medicine and other technologies including the 256 pulses used to create the first computer.
As long as you are miseducated to call Esu, your own messenger to God, a wholly evil figure, you can never do well. No be curse my people. God can’t answer your prayers as the Oyinbo that changed Yeshua to Jesus realized. You will continue to be fooled with propaganda and selective justice that makes you choose the wrong leaders. Esu’s most important lesson was to acknowledge that all information is from a specific perspective. Give yourself brain.
We move…. with cultural Enlightenment because if you don’t know where you are coming from, you won’t know where you are going.
The writer is Esu because he was born in Virgo like all other prophets, or artists like Michael Jackson, Beyonce etc.
