THE INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT OF GOD BEFORE THE TRANSLATION OF THE SAINTS

PREACHED 0n Tuesday, 8th September, 1996 by the SON OF MAN (APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA) AT THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA

I am The Ancient of Days, The Boundless One, The Unlimited, The Undifferentiated, The Illimitable One; The Divine Emanation, The origin of the Universe, The Great Teacher, The Highest Judge. Believe it if you can…


—The Son of Man

I want you to understand that the Son of Man in our midst has been glorified. Before many witnesses, the Shekinah Glory came down. This time around, He is going to be glorified again.

The accumulated judgment of God will break upon the heads of the people in this generation. This generation must be held responsible for all the children of God that were killed here starting from the time of Abel in the Garden of Eden.



In other word, we are to wind up the history of Christianity. If we have come to the end of the age, what else do we expect? Judgment! –Son of MAN

THE INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT OF GOD BEFORE THE TRANSLATION OF THE SAINTS

by the
SON OF MAN


(APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA)

PROLOGUE

I will like to say something this day and place it for a memorial. There has been a Message that has been going on in this Faith that the Almighty God vindicated in every aspect.

2. Evangelists have preached on it, teachers have taught on that, Apostles have ministered to us on that, Pastors have pastored on that, Prophets have prophesied on the Message, and today even Bishops have bishoped the Church on that. Also, Deacons have deaconed on it, but today, I want to place an everlasting seal on it. I want to bring it to an end. I am halting the Message.

3. So, after this one you will not hear it again, but it will be re-echoing in our hearts. If you played with it all this while, you are not on the line. Now that I am stopping it, playing with it means playing with your life.

4. If there is anytime you should pray that Satan should not have advantage over you, it is now.

5. Mothers, if your little ones will disturb you, that is the reason for your maidservants. Anybody that is cheated in this Message will regret. Brother Francis you are blessed to be in the Fellowship this day.

6. We are not playing this Message in tape. You are witnessing it live. It pays to be an eyewitness.

7. I will make use of two translations; Amplified Version and King James Version. Amen.

CHAPTER ONE
THERE IS SOMETHING IN A MAN’S NAME

Remain blessed Brethren. You have been having your days. The lion has roared. Who will not fear? You see, the moment Elijah comes to the pulpit Ahab becomes afraid.

8. The moment prophet Micaiah appears on the scene, Ahab will tremble for he can never speak anything good concerning Ahab. Is there anything good in Ahab?

9. That is why people bear every good name, but they avoid “Ahab” and “Jezebel.”

10. People can bear the names Aaron, Moses, Jehoshaphat, but nobody has ever borne the name Ahab or Jezebel, why? There is something in those names.

11. Nobody has ever borne the name Pharaoh or Herod or even Pilate. Are they not human names? Why do people run away from them? There is something in a man’s name.

12. Anybody called Billy must be Billy. You are called Jackson, you are a Jackson. You are called Tyson, you are Tyson. These are spirits.

13. A young man that bears the name Samuel, instead of allowing people to call him Samuel prefers to go by the name Abacha; and I keep on wondering what is good in Abacha.

14. Somebody can change. How can somebody recognize those names as if there is anything good in Akpabio or Danjuma?

15. See all those foolish names which students take for themselves, they affect them in one way or another. “My friend, I do not know of yours, I know you have one. You must have one because your stature will earn you a very prominent name in school.”

16. Thus, when you want to take a name, take a name that will please God. Do not take a name that will be offensive.

17. If somebody bears Jeroboam or Rehoboam as a name, what does he stand to gain? These are very bad names. No child of God should bear them. Amen.

When God is talking about judgement, it is for the world. The Bible said, “God is going to judge His enemies, God will judge His adversaries.”

God is not going to judge His friends; He will not judge His children because there is no iniquity in His children. If iniquity is found in Me, there is iniquity in God.

I am numbered among those people who God inputted righteousness even without works. I am numbered among those people whom God has declared righteous because He wanted to. No more, no less. –Son of MAN

(HAVING THIS MINISTRY WE FAINT NOT)

CHAPTER TWO
INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT—INTRODUCTION

Revelation chapter 14 verse 6 through 7: “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation and kindred and tongue and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give glory to Him; for the hour of His Judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven and earth, and sea, and the fountains of waters.” (KJV).

2. “Then I saw another angel flying in midair, with an eternal Gospel (good news) to tell to the inhabitants of the earth, to every race and tribe, and language and people. And he cried with a mighty voice, Revere God and give him glory (honor and praise in worship), for the hour of his Judgment has arrived. Fall down before Him; pay Him homage and adoration and worship Him Who created heaven and earth, the sea and the springs (fountains) of water.” (AMP).

3. I want to speak on the topic: THE INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT OF GOD BEFORE THE TRANSLATION OF THE SAINTS.

4. I know many were thinking or had already concluded in their hearts that Brother is going to speak on the Message He introduced last week: THE EVERLASTING SEAL OF GOD. I know everybody has been praying, looking forward to that “today, Brother will be going back to that Message and then He will bring it to an end.”

5. Well, I am equally looking forward to the day I will touch the Message again. You are living witnesses of what I passed through simply because I touched the Message. And I had to recoil to enquire. This is because I do not want to die before my time.

6. There are many things we are prohibited from declaring or making public until the appointed time, but under anointing, because of love for the Brethren, one might be tempted to delve into such secrets. It requires Almighty God to halt the person. This is because there is time for every Message.

7. A man of God that tries to jump and jump into the Message whose time has not yet come must be halted.

8. Hence, what I passed through was not from the hand of the Devil. The Devil has no part in my life. I enquired about it over and over. Then I got the reply that it is the hand of the Almighty God.

9. The Almighty God decided that I should not continue with that Message for that hour. Thus, I stopped it at the Introduction. And this one which was to come after that one has been placed before the Message.

10. In other words, I will go to the INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT which I placed after THE EVERLASTING SEAL. God has decided to pin Me down making Me understand that the INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT will go first and then The EVERLASTING SEAL will follow for the people that will be placed with the “everlasting seal” are the people that will be justified in the “Investigative Judgment.”

11. Anyone that did not sail through will forget about the SEAL. And we were issued the forms to assess ourselves. God tried to check our sincerity to know how sincere we are to ourselves.

12. It is just like a Message I preached in my house; I told my wife something saying: “Watch, I am going to ask people to assess themselves now. I will tell them who a child of God is or, this fellow; you are not a child of God or, how is your relationship with God?”

13. I said, “Watch what will happen when I proclaim it, they will say: ‘Ah! What is this? Is this the Spirit of God?’”

14. I said, “Watch, I am going to preach a Message,” and that night, I gave you that Message.

15. Immediately we got to the “place,” some kept quiet; some made a lot of funny statements: “Ah! As for me, my status is unquestionable; I am a true child of God.” And because he justified himself, the Word has to prove him one million percent wrong.

16. When the Word was confirmed and he was placed on a scale, he weighed nothing. Then the question came back: “My friend, from what you have seen in the world, are you better than they are?”

IT IS A RELAY RACE

I think that is what God is doing now? Whatever I preach in this Faith normally starts from my family.

18. If I cannot spare my own family, I cannot spare you. Why? This is because I want them to be wherever I will be and I want you to be wherever I will be also.

19. In every age, God appoints a man that will bring His Elect back to Him.

20. So, Paul will come with his own Elect for his day. Martin will come; all of them will come—William Branham will come.

21. How many know that we are not living in the age of William Branham? How many know that? If you do not know it, you are just like one that saw Christ and still stuck to John the Baptist.

22. If you do not believe what I am saying, you are just like one that saw Christ and still said, “We are Moses’ disciples.”

23. We are not living in the days of William Branham; William Branham’s Message cannot save anybody now. But while he was in the scene, any man that disobeyed him died in disobedience. But when that age was over, that era has passed away; all that survived are now ushered into the Bride Ministry. They had to part with William Branham and follow the Christ. It is a relay race; we are continuing.

24. All that died in the days of William Branham but did not believe, perished. Why? It was said that he held the “dispensational truth” for that age. There was nothing higher than what he was holding then. He held the ABSOLUTE TRUTH in his day. But today, what he held then, we now call the PAST TRUTH.

25. That was why in his day, he could mingle even with the Baptists, the Nazarenes, the Pentecostals and so on and he went about telling them: “You know I cannot touch our doctrine here; I cannot do this and that here.”

26. In other words, he was compromising with them. But God did not call it compromise. On the other hand, when God called them, He made them a separate people, with a warning: “Do not mingle; do not mingle.”

27. When He gave us His Word, we received it directly from Him. Remember, William Branham did not receive His Word. God never gave William Branham His Word. But God called Branham and asked him to go and point His people back to His Word.

28. Thus, He gave somebody His Word. William Branham was not a TEACHING PRIEST. That was why he could not bring back the people to God. That was why when he was on the scene, there was confusion everywhere. And there remaineth the confusion until the last day.

29. However, in the Bride, they must speak one thing to show you that the Church has come back because the Bible said that the Church must have ONE VOICE, speak one thing, minding the same thing and WALKING by the SAME RULE.

30. Hence, the End-time Message could not achieve it because it was not the Church. It was just having CONFUSION. They were not holding the Word; the Word was not yet come, but everybody was being pointed to the Word.

31. But the Bride holds the Word and the Word calls for TOTAL SEPARATION FROM HEATHEN. The Word calls for total separation.

32. Remember, there were some people that were here before we came. And the Word said: “Do not go after the abomination of the people that will be disappointed at last.”

33. Therefore, there are abominations here; otherwise, there will not be Bride Ministry.

34. I am coming to something. Let me come back to the Message proper. Amen.

William Branham said, “God, I do not need your judgment, I need your mercy.” While a preacher under Branham said, he wanted judgment. Before our eyes, they were failing everyday. How many of you want God to judge you? How many wants to go to God’s Judgment Seat? God forbid.

Who will I be looking for there? There is nobody I will be looking for there. Is that place meant for me? If you want to go there, go; as for me, I will not go. If I will go to the Judgment Seat, why am I wasting my time in this Faith?

I am getting my judgment in this Church everyday. That I am being judged now in the Church is that I will not be judged again with the world. God has fixed a day in which He is going to judge the world in righteousness by Christ. Therefore, I am not going to be judged with the world. This is my judgment. –Son of MAN

(NO DECEPTION IS OF THE TRUTH)

CHAPTER THREE


NOW IS THE JUDGMENT HOUR

Revelation chapter 14 verse 6 through 7: “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

1. Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” (KJV).

2. “Then I saw another angel flying in midair, with an eternal Gospel (good news) to tell to the inhabitants of the earth, to every race and tribe, and language and people. And he cried with a mighty voice, Revere God and give him glory (honour and praise in worship), for the hour of his Judgment has arrived. Fall down before Him; pay Him homage and adoration and worship Him Who created heaven and earth, the sea and the springs (fountains) of water, for the hour of His Judgment has arrived.” (AMP).

3. “The hour of His Judgment has arrived,” did he say it is coming? The Judgment is here already.

4. In other words, there is no way the Judgment can come without somebody. Somebody is committed with something which will judge the world and what is that thing? It is the Message.

5. Somebody is committed with the everlasting Message that will cut across all language barriers, all tribal barriers, pointing all men, all women, all flesh back to the Elohim to reverence Him, to Honour Him, to fear Him. All that disbelieve that EVERLASTING GOSPEL are all condemned. Did you get the Message?

JUDGMENT MUST START FROM THE HOUSE OF GOD

The Judgment has already arrived. And the Lord has already told us about the Judgment. When Judgment arrives, where will it anchor first? IT WILL BEGIN WITH GOD’S HOUSE. IT WILL BEGIN AMONG GOD’S OWN PEOPLE FIRST. Why? The Saints will judge the world.

6. Before the Saints will judge the world, they themselves will have to be judged by the Almighty God and be justified first by His Judgment, lest someone will condemn a man that is more innocent than he is. You will be judged and justified then you will judge the world.

7. Thus, now that Judgment has arrived, where is it? Is it in the world? It is in the Church. It is now in the Earthly Kingdom of God and this Judgment will determine who will form the members of the Heavenly Kingdom.

8. This is because whomsoever that is justified in the Earthly Kingdom is he that is qualified to be translated; they now will form the Heavenly Bride that will come back with Christ to reign one thousand years.

9. So, it is the Judgment of the Saints first; examination of the Saints first. Who must be examined? Those that claim to be following Christ.

10. This is because everybody claims he is a child of God, he is a disciple, he is a worshipper, he is a follower. Then it requires God to come and examine. This examination is to enable us know who is who in the Church. And this is going to be done by the Gospel—the Word.

11. The Judgment has begun already. With the Everlasting Gospel which is committed into the hands of God’s own Angel to be preached to all tribes, tongues and languages so that nobody will have any excuse.

12. God, in the midst of His people signals Judgment. God leaving the Mercy Throne and now at the Judgment Throne. Who will escape?

WE ARE IN THE HARVEST PERIOD

This Judgment is going to be a gradual and spontaneous Judgment just before Christ will come and TRANSLATE THE SAINTS. IT IS GOING TO BE A VERY TOUGH AND THOROUGH EXAMINATION OF ALL THE FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST, TO SEPARATE THE SHEEP FROM THE GOATS. To separate the weed from the tares because all that glitters is not gold.

14. We are now in the harvest period. The sickle has been brought in, and now, this is the time where there is no remedy for sin, no remedy for unbelief. Any manifestation of unbelief now signals eternal death.

15. In every age, it has been like that. Before God judged the city of Sodom and Gomorrah, He judged them with the Message of Lot; Noah’s age, the same way. And God has promised before His return to translate the Saints.

16. There must be real Investigative Judgment; real examination of the Bride—of the Church.

17. Verse 14 of Revelation 14: “And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.” (KJV).

18. “Again I looked, and behold, (I saw) a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud One resembling a Son of Man, with a crown of gold on His head and a sharp scythe (sickle) in His hand.”(AMP).

19. And a sharp sickle in his hand. We can see it even in Daniel chapter 7 verse 13.

20. Daniel chapter 7 verse 13 through 14: “I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

21. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. ” (KJV).

22. “And I saw in the night visions, and behold, on the cloulds of the heavens came One like the Son of Man, and He came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him.

23. And there was given Him (the Messiah) dominion and glory and kingdom that all peoples, nations and languages shall serve Him. His dominion shall be an everlasting dominion in which shall not pass away, and His kingdom is one which shall not be destroyed. (AMP).

24. What is He going to do with the sharp sickle? It is harvest period, harvest time. What is He going to harvest?

25. Saint Matthew told us the whole thing; that the Church represents God’s Vineyard. And you are what God is going to harvest. If at the time of harvest, instead of gathering good fruits, good grapes, He comes in and He witnesses sour, sour grapes, will He be happy? You see the essence of the Judgment; the Church examination?

26. This is to ensure that He will not be disappointed on that day when He comes in to harvest—to collect His fruit. If He comes in to see problem fruits, He will not be happy. So, He wants to do the selection before He comes in.

27. By and by, somebody must meet Him in the end. I said by and by. I am certain about it.

YOU MUST REAP (GET) WHAT YOU SOW

What is He coming to do after the Judgment?

29. Revelation chapter 22 verse 12: “And, behold, I come quickly and my reward is with me, to give every man according to his work shall be.” (KJV).

30. “Behold, I am coming soon and I shall bring My wages and rewards with Me, to repay and render to each one just what his own actions and his own work merit.”(AMP).

31. To reward every man what his own actions and his own works merit. If your own works and actions merit death, you receive death sentence. If they merit eternal life, you receive eternal life.

32. Isaiah chapter 40 verse 10: “Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.” (KJV).

33. “ Behold the Lord will come with might, and His arm will rule for Him. Behold, His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.” (AMP).

34. Jeremiah chapter 17 verse 10: “I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.” (KJV).

35. “I the Lord search the mind, I try the heart, even to give to every man according to His ways, according to gthe fruit of his doings.” (AMP).

36. Ecclesiastics chapter 12 verse 14: “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” (KJV).

37. “For God shall bring every work into Judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” (AMP).

38. You see, God is not going to spare anything; every work whether it is good or bad, since the Lord called you into this ministry, you must be examined.

39. For any good thing you have done, you must give God reason why you did it: whether you did it to receive men’s approval, men’s praise; whether you did it so that people will call you good names, whether you are doing it to please men or to please God. You must say why you did these things you have done.

40. You must equally declare why you have done all the evil things. Whether you are doing it to harm your neighbour, to harm humanity or to challenge God’s Authority or whether you are doing it because it is your nature, God must know why; why you carry Bible and come to Church; why you neglect all Pentecostals, all groups and come into the Bridal Faith, you must say why. Why you are following God, you must say it. Whatever you merit is what you are going to get.

41. Galatians chapter 6 verse 7: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (KJV).

42. “Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside). (He inevitably deludes Himself who attempts to delude God.) For whatsoever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap.” (AMP).

43. Whatever you sow that and that only you must reap. If you have been sowing disobedience, ungodly act, recklessness and stubbornness, do not expect eternal life; do not expect justification, for God can never justify you in your wickedness. He will always condemn evil.

44. You have been sowing good; you have been obeying God, keeping every commandment and instruction you have received from Him, then you will be justified at last. Then you make eternal life.

45. You cannot plant paw-paw and harvest orange. Any seed a man soweth that he must reap. It is an irrevocable truth; you cannot change it. Amen.

Is there anybody that can make it in the judgment of God?

The prophet said that one can preach the Gospel as an apostle, a bishop, a pastor, a deacon etc and while the Church will be translated, the preacher will be going to Judgment Throne. I said, “God Forbid.”

However, I remember that when we were in the end-time message, their ministers were praying that they would all appear in the judgment seat. They were even taking oaths saying, “I know for sure, that God is going to judge me one of these days with what I am preaching in this pulpit. I am going to appear before God in judgment”. I say, God forbid! –Son of MAN

(NO DECEPTION IS OF THE TRUTH)

CHAPTER FOUR
GOD WILL JUDGE BOTH THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE UNRIGHTEOUS

Remember, the Message is THE INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT OF GOD. This puts an end to the Message: SELF-EVALUATION which has been going on for weeks now.

2. Now the question arises: what do you think you have been sowing all these years? What type of seed have you been sowing? Since you have been following God, what kind of seed are you sowing?

3. You that have scored yourself, may be 100% in the evaluation exercise, and said, “Mine does not need any negotiation; I am a child of God,” are you really sure of yourself?

4. That was why God asked us to go home and readdress ourselves; readdress our performances in line with the Messages we have received all the while—to evaluate ourselves, to check our sincerity.

5. I am laying a foundation.

6. As I told you before, this INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT OF GOD among His people will determine who will form the Heavenly Body or the Heavenly Kingdom; who will be members of that Kingdom God promised.

7. Many have been thinking that this Judgment has passed away long ago; no. Many think God will only judge the wicked, no. God will judge both the righteous and unrighteous. God must judge all men whether we like it or not.

8. Let us see how Saint Paul put it with the power of the Holy Spirit.

9. Acts chapter 17 verse 31: “Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.” (KJV).

10. “Because He has fixed a day when He will judge the world righteously (justly) by a man who He has destined and appointed for that task, and He has made this credible and given conviction and assurance evidence to everyone by raising Him from the dead.” (AMP).

11. That man in question in this Scripture is no other person but Christ, and Christ is no other person than the appointed Word of God; the Word that was crucified; the same Word that resurrected.

12. Pilate crucified an individual and the individual resurrected, but the entire world crucified the Word and the Word resurrected.

13. All denominations crucified the Bible; they crucified the Word, but today, the Word has resurrected for Judgment is committed into the hand of the Word which is Christ Himself.

14. Why did they crucify the Word? This was because the Word condemned them of their evil and ungodly action for that reason they say the Word (Christ) must be put to death. They put aside the Word and now the Word is back doing the same thing for which God sent Him: “For Judgment have I come into this world,” is it not the promise according to the Word?

15. See this Scripture again: “Because he has fixed a day when He will judge the world righteously (justly) by a man whom he has destined and appointed for that task, and he has made this credible and given conviction and assurance and evidence to everyone by raising him from the dead.” (AMP).

16. Psalm chapter 9 verse 8: “And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.” (KJV).

17. “And He will judge the world in righteousness (rightness and equity); He will minister justice to the peoples in uprightness. (AMP).

18. Psalm chapter 96 verse 13: “Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.” (KJV).

19. “Before the Lord, for He comes, for He comes to judge and govern the earth! He shall judge the world with righteousness and justice and the peoples with His faithfulness and truth.” (AMP).

20. Psalm chapter 98 verse 9: “Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.” (KJV).

21. “Before the Lord, for He is coming to judge (and rule) the earth; with righteousness will He judge (and rule) the world, and the peoples with equity.” (AMP).

22. Let us see the way James put it. Whether James will be judged, we shall see it in the Holy Scriptures.

23. James chapter 2 verse 12: “So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.” (KJV).

24. Who is he commanding? He is commanding the Church. He is commanding the Saints.

DO NOT ABUSE YOUR LIBERTY IN CHRIST

 So, speak ye and do ye as people that will be judged by God’s Law of Liberty. That is why He first of all gave us a Message: PRESERVING YOUR LIBERTY IN CHRIST.

26. Do not abuse your liberty in Christ; do not say because you are at liberty with God, His Church is not a denomination; nobody is the general superintendent, for that reason you talk anyhow and behave anyhow. Remember, you must be judged by the same Law of Liberty.

27. God gave you the liberty, the freedom to decide by yourselves whether to worship Him or not. And then you abused it; you think you can get away? Impossible! God will call you back and then judge you for abusing the freedom. We are not under the Law. They that are under the Law must be judged by the Law. Those that are under Liberty (Grace) must be judged by the Law of Liberty.

28. We are not in bondage in this Faith; we have freedom of expression. We can stand up, raise our hands and ask questions. We can enquire; we can say “no” to things that we do not want.

29. Thus, we are at liberty; but when you misuse this liberty and use it as an occasion for rioting, for disobedience, for behaving ungodly, God will bring you back to Judgment.

30. In other words, what I am asking you now is: How have you used your liberty in Christ all these years? What have you used to thank God for bringing you into this Kingdom? How has it helped you all these years? Have you used it in prayer, in fasting, in evangelism? Have you used it in any way at all? Or have you selfishly used the whole time for your own selfish ambition?

31. Check it very well, for God must judge you by this Law of Liberty. Have you used your freedom anyhow? “After all, nobody monitors me, nobody checks me from time to time.”

32. You behave disorderly contrary to the doctrine of the Church. You use it as an occasion for rioting, for drinking, for smoking, for lying, for cheating, for making money by all means, because nobody monitors you? The Law of Liberty must judge you.

33. In addition, the Bible is saying: “Speak ye and do ye; behave as people that will be judged by the same Law of Liberty.”

34. “So speak and so act as (people should) who are to be judged under the law of liberty (the moral instruction given by Christ, especially about love).” (AMP).

35. So, this Judgment is very, very true. It is not the Judgment of the world—because only names of those that profess to be children of God are judged or examined and if anybody is found wanting, his name is blotted out from the Book of Life in Heaven. Everybody in this Faith is seating in heavenly places in Christ. And you know where you are, according to Hebrews chapter 12 verse 22 through 23.

TRANSLATION IS ONLY FOR THE PERFECT

Hebrews chapter 12 verse 22: “But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

37. But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels.” (KJV).

38. But rather, you have come to mount Zion, even to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem and to countless multitudes of angels in festal gathering, and to the Church (assembly) of the first born who are registered (as citizens) in heaven,

39. and to God who is Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous (the redeemed in heaven) who have been made perfect.” (AMP).

40. You see where you have come to, and to God the Judge of all? You are registered in Heaven. And from there, your name will be blotted out also by the same Judge of all if you are found wanting.

41. So, God must check you. What is He looking for? God is separating perfect people from the imperfect people for the TRANSLATION is only for the PERFECT. The Translation is for the perfect.

42. In other words, God is now coming to examine all of us in line with the Message we have received. If the Translation is for the perfect, how many will be translated if He will come now?

43. Remember, nobody said “no” to that Message. Everybody agreed that it is the truth and now we have come to the end; He has brought in the sickle, He is about to harvest and He is looking for the ripe fruits. He is not looking for the unripe ones. How many are ripe? How many are perfect?

44. The Translation is for the perfect only. Yes, we have God’s extra oil because all that are in this Faith, I believe came with extra oil. We have come to the end and this is the LAST CHECKPOINT because immediately after this, there will be SEALING.

45. After the Sealing, there will be the TRANSLATION OF THE SAINTS. And you know what accompanies the Translation of the Saints. Immediately after this Message, we go into Sealing.

CREATE YOUR OWN TESTIMONY

Now watch out where we are, watch Israel in prophecy; watch the Message; you will see the whole thing is fulfilling line by line.

47. Watch the month we are in; it is now September—I do not know. What if the whole thing will round off by November? Who knows the mind of God? What if by the end of this year it will be over. Who knows the mind of God?

48. However, remember how many days we have to be in the year 2000. This is 1996; about 4 years from now. Remember, in God’s own calendar, it is before that date. And then if we are to check God’s own calendar, His own 2000 years will be 1998.

49. A great thing, a greater event is about to take place. You know, very soon we will go into Sealing, somebody must be sealed away. Forget about the everlasting Seal and then keep on investigating. Keep on investigating so that at the end if you find yourself there, you will go in. Keep on checking; keep on evaluating. You know yourself; you know your action.

50. If all your actions are brought to book and you are rewarded according to your merit, what are you going to get as your reward? If God will reward you based on all your works, what do you think God will reward you for?

51. Yet, He is not going to use another thing; He is going to use your works. Because I said it, no amount of preaching will change it. If you start crying from now till tomorrow, He will not change it. He has already said it.

52. That is why I keep on saying ahead of time: “Stop sharing another man’s testimonies.” Whatever testimony you are sharing is to his credit. Rather, create your own testimony; create your own record. Stop rehearsing another man’s record. You say it; God will mark it good and credit it to him. Your account is nil.

53. In this Church, we believe we do not pay tithe, yes! We believe that the apostles did not pay tithe, yes! Christ did not pay tithe, yes! We believe they gave all, yes! Have we given all? They shared what they had; they had everything in common, yes!

54. Have we shared what we have? God must judge all these. God must penetrate; He must keep His Word whether we like it or not. What I am telling you is truth. This is the Judgment.

FULFIL YOUR VOW (S)

Do not worry, I will bring it closer. God has given us that Law of Liberty. Liberty in the sense that you are not under obligation. You give as you have purposed in your heart. You give as God prospered you.

56. How many times have you purposed and yet really do it as you purposed? How many times have you knelt down before God and made a vow, a pledge yet went back and cancelled it? You pledged it and said, “God, this is what I promise to bring if you do this for me.”

57. But when God finally does it for you, you forget about the promise you made. That is why after ministration, you go ahead complaining. You just complain too much.

If there is anything called sin, I am also numbered among those whose sins are covered for His Name’s sake.

Therefore, God cannot ask Me to work out my righteousness. He knows what is my righteousness. I can only be unrighteous if He does not exist. If He exists, I exist, He is my righteousness.

If He wants to condemn Me, He should condemn Himself. If He wants to sentence Me to Hell, He will be there too. –Son of MAN

(HAVING THIS MINISTRY WE FAINT NOT)

CHAPTER FIVE

THE “JUDGMENT SEAT” IS ALREADY IN THE CHURCH

I know that you have not forgotten that it was said that the Saints would judge the world. You think God will set a throne in Nigeria; after judging Nigeria, He will go to America; after America, He will go elsewhere? Na lie. He that believeth not is condemned already for Judgment has come onto the world.

2. The Angel of Judgment is not the Angel of Mercy because when He judges, He judges without respect of persons. He judges without partiality.

3. In other words, He can even declare Himself guilty; He can declare His mother guilty, declare His father guilty, His wife guilty, His children guilty. Judgment starts from His family first; otherwise, He is not a True Judge.

4. That is why the Message is not sparing anybody; it is not pampering anybody. The Message does not know who you are. This is the INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT.

5. Now, you evaluated yourself, saw your faults and now God is announcing the results. At the end, we will know who and who are wasting their time.

6. This is because anybody that is going for any promotion must know. I say you must know. Your promotion starts from your performance report.

7. This Message scared Me. When this Message came down, I said it scared Me. I could not touch it. I prayed and prayed, yet it scared Me. I went another way to touch it by self-evaluation, I hung it there, still it scared Me. I wanted to set it aside or jump it, the Lord called Me back.

8. Then it has become clearer that we cannot jump over this Message. We must follow it the same way God brought it down—no smartness. I know too much is not here.

9. All these years we have fooled ourselves. The end has to come against us; time has come against us because we have foolishly rolled into the period when it has become increasingly impossible for us to make our wrongs right. We have rolled into a dangerous period when God has left the Mercy Seat; when we are now talking to souls that are in custody for God knows how to preserve them until the day of destruction.

10. He said that this Message is for the “total lost.” And He told us what we should expect. People will say, “It is true; it is true,” but they will not believe. They will not agree.

11. When God gave you the truth and you do not abide by the truth, have you not condemned yourself? It is the Message for the total lost. That is why we are not expecting people to come in thousands and in millions, no.

12. “If you don’t want it like this, leave it there.” All that were not there from the very beginning will go away. That is why you see people flying out now; flying out because it is end time.

13. People will go to where they belong; people that come from God will go back to God. People that belong to the world will go back to the world and sit there and the world has raised her hands wide open to receive them.

14. From now, all that will leave this Faith will feel comfortable in the world; note it. But before this time, any person that is excommunicated in this Faith will feel uncomfortable.

15. But now, anybody we excommunicate from our midst will now relax in the world. The world will welcome the person very well; give him all that he desires to make sure that he does not come back to the Faith tomorrow. They will love him and cherish him.

16. That is why even our Sister Ike has not come back; she has not yet come back because the Lord regarded that thing as blasphemy of His Name in the eyes of the heathen.

17. Fear God; when you think Judgment has come, it has not come at that time; but when you never expected Judgment is the time it will come. Nothing offends God more than somebody failing to sanctify His Name in the eyes of the heathen. It offends God more than any other thing; God regards it as idolatry.

18. And now, while we are wasting our time thinking that God was joking, we doubted; we forgot the Word: “Keep on doubting and I keep on moving. Keep on wasting your time and I will keep moving ahead.”

19. We thought He was waiting when He was not waiting; rather, He was keeping His own time. He told us: “I am not waiting for you; you are waiting for Me; I am not using your time table; I am using my own time table.”

20. Thus, do not try to programme Me; rather, follow Me. He has been on the move since that time. And now He is on the ground. He is standing here with us. He is no longer at the level where Simon will be dodging, no; or where He signals the end; no.

YOUR JUSTIFICATION IS IN THE SPIRIT
 
Now, the Judgment is already in the Church. From the time the Judgment arrived in the Church that is the time the JUDGE arrived. And He has taken the Judgment Seat. And in the Judgment Seat, you hear: “Discharged and acquitted,” you hear: “Sentenced to prison.”

22. These are the two things you may hear; one, “condemned;” two, “discharged and acquitted.” Some may be in this Faith and yet they are in prison custody, jailed with everlasting condemnation. Some are rejoicing in the Spirit because they have been justified. Why? It is the Spirit that justifies. When a man is justified in the spirit—oh! Glory, it gives Me joy.

23. Your justification is not in the flesh but in the Spirit. Be ye justified by the Spirit, you have boldness to stand before Him. How many have the boldness to stand before Him and say, “God, my spirit justified me.”

24. If any have not the Spirit of God, he is not of God. If any have not that Spirit, for it is the Spirit that quickens, it is the Spirit that justifies no matter the way you look at it, such a person is not from God.

25. This is God’s investigative Judgment before translation. That is why the Bride must recognize who she is first. No magic about Translation. If you are there, you are there.

26. Just like Brother Francis that was coming to Onitsha this day, no magic on the way. You knew you were coming to Onitsha, and now you are at Onitsha. You are seating down in the Fellowship seeing your brother; you know he is your brother, full stop. There is no magic. So it is.

27. So, God is going to judge the world. When? That would be after the millennial reign; I say, after the millennial reign, God will then judge the world. But as for us in this Faith, we are not going to wipe away Judgment. This is our own day; the world has its own day.

28. So, this is God and His people— God judging His people. It is not the time for the Amalekites, Jebusites and Perizzites. It is our own time. Amen.

If there is any time the Son of God has been exalted, it is now. Persecution has never allowed the Church to exalt Him.

Really, when He will be exalted, He will not be exalted alone. By exaltation here, I mean, when He will be glorified.

If the judgment of God is about to break upon the head of this generation, will the Church remain in the unglorified condition? The Church must be glorified before the wrath of God.

The wrath of God is the judgment of God upon the children of disobedience.

Again, this will take place immediately the Church is glorified. The Church being glorified means the Son of Man being glorified. When the Voice went forth, it said, “I have glorified you, and I will glorify you again.” –Son of MAN

(NO DECEPTION IS OF THE TRUTH)

CHAPTER SIX


JUDGMENT OF THE CHURCH AND JUDGMENT OF THE WORLD—EXPLAINED

Revelation chapter 20 verse 11 through 13: “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

2. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened”— one book.

3. “Which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” (KJV).

ONLY THE FAITHFULS WILL RECEIVE THE CROWN OF LIFE

You see, sinners are always in the majority. Books were opened containing names of all ungodly people. But watch the saints all over the world, their names are contained in “one book.” But the other is just endless book volumes.

5. Roman Catholic will fill over one million volumes; Anglican the same thing. Their names will all be there. This is because every creature on Earth has a name somewhere. Do you know that? God created both the evil and the good for the day of evil and for the day of good also.

6. Verse 13 through 15: “And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

7. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

8. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (KJV).

9. You see where your names are registered in Heaven; in God’s own book and then God is now looking at the people that are faithful and those that are not faithful? All that are not faithful, He will deny them of the Crown of Life, and all that are faithful will have that Crown of Life.

10. FROM NOW, BE VERY CAREFUL.

BEING IN THE PRISON CUSTODY

“Then I saw thrones, and sitting on them were those to whom authority to act as judges and to pass sentence was entrusted.

12. Also I saw the souls of those who had been slain with axes (beheaded) for their witnessing to Jesus and (for preaching and testifying) for the word of God, who had refused to pay homage to the beast or his statue and had not accepted his mark or permitted it to be stamped on their foreheads or on their hands.

13. And they lived again and ruled with Christ (the Messiah) a thousand years.’ So, God even judges feelings, human feelings.” (AMP).

14. Daniel chapter 7 verse 10 through 14: “A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

15. I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.

16. As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

17. I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

18. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. (KJV).

19. This one does not concern Me. This is God judging the world. And all that had the Message of the antichrist, all that neglect this everlasting Gospel will appear there: all that paid homage; all that were loyal to false doctrines—to Trinity; all of them will appear there.

20. But to the Saints, we cannot appear there for God cannot judge us two times. He will judge us now and justify us so that He will not judge us when He will be judging the world. But whosoever that is not justified in this Faith when God will justify His people, his own is finished. He is waiting for God’s wrath that will come upon the people of disobedience.

21. If in this Investigative Judgment, you are not justified, you are in custody. If you do not fix your mind here, blame yourself. I have warned you several times.

22. Revelation chapter 3 verse 5: “He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed with white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my father, and before my angels.”

23. This is God talking to the Churches; He said, “He that heareth and feareth, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches.” (KJV).

24. In other words, there must be Judgment in the Churches. And we fall within the Laodicea.

25. Whosoever that overcometh this Investigative Judgment of the Church—remember, Judgment of the Church is not Judgment of the world—his name will not be blotted out of the Book of Life and he will have eternal life.

26. But whosoever that does not overcome this Investigative Judgment of the Church, you are in prison; you will be in the Faith hearing the Word, hearing the Message, witnessing the prophecies, signs and wonders, interpretations, everything, yet at the end you will go to Hell.

27. The wrath of God will come upon you because you have been disobedient in your own time. That is why He said, When you hear the Word of God today, do not harden your heart as a sign of rebellion.”

28. God knows why He decided to give us the Message this day. And now He is asking us where we are. Judging your actions and feelings; all that you have been manifesting by the Message this day, bear witness to what you have become.

LEARN FROM THE PAST (HISTORY)

Today, where do you place yourself? God knows why He said that delay can be dangerous. There will be a day that He will close it. And now it is closed whether you like it or not. I do not care the way you look at it.

30. There is a time for planting and there is a time for harvesting. A wise man cannot keep on planting from January to December. There must be a time of harvest. We cannot remain preaching forever.

31. Somebody repenting when the ARK is closed, is there any useful purpose for that? A person that repents when the ark of Noah is closed, is his repentance valid? They missed their opportunity; they played with it. They thought God would allow the ark to remain open forever.

32. The day that Noah entered the ark, was it the day it started raining? Those seven days can be seven years. Those seven days can be one week. Those seven days can be seven weeks; but, I am certain that it was not that week that the rain started.

33. But the moment Noah entered the ark, preaching of the Gospel stopped. All that believed the Message and were looking for people to come and help them could not see anybody to help.

34. Watch what the Message is doing. Anywhere the Message goes people will scorn it; it can hardly save one person. He has fulfilled His word.

35. He said, “To save a Jew is not easy.” When Peter was preaching, it was not easy for him. That is why no Jew will go to Heaven. All the Jews that followed Christ, God made them judges. And they were judges over their own people.

ONLY CHRIST CAN STAND FOR YOU IN JUDGMENT

I Believe we are judges also. I know this Message is very frightening.

37. If He (Christ) fails to stand with you, you cannot make it. If He fails to speak for you, you are doomed.

38. In other words, if you want to win your case, cling yourself to Him. You want to be justified, cling unto Him.

39. Daniel chapter 12 verse 1: “And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” (KJV).

40. At that time, “thy people shall be delivered—all that are found written in the book.” Which means nobody is lost because He has taken their position.

41. “And as that time (of the end) Michael shall arise, the great (angelic) prince who defends and has charge of your (Daniel’s) people and there shall be a time of trouble, straitness, and distress such as never was since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered every one whose name shall be found written in the book (of God’s plan for His own).” (AMP).

42. Who defends and shall have what? Charge, over what? Over Daniel’s people. Remember Daniel was the prophet that saw the beginning and the end of Gentile Dispensation. And look at what he is declaring at the end, after which there shall be troubles which have not been recorded and can never be recorded in the end.

43. What type of trouble is that? That is the great wrath of God upon the children of disobedience which the Holy Ghost told us are steps people must pass through before they will pass into Hell—stages people will pass through before they will move into Hellfire.

44. So, it is not easy to go to Heaven.

45. “And there shall be a time of trouble, straitness and distress, such as never was since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book (of God’s plan for His own).” (AMP).

46. God’s plan for His own, not for the world.

47. Romans chapter 3 verse 4: “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.” (KJV).

48. “By no means! let God be found true though every human being is false and a liar, as it is written, that you may be justified and shown to be upright in what you say and prevail when you are judged by sinful men.” (AMP).

49. God will overcome anytime He is judged. In other words, it requires God to go with you to judgment.

50. Remember the song: “Where He leads me, I will follow. I will go with Him, all the way.

51. I will go with Him through the Judgment. I will go with Him all the way.” Amen.

…I have told you that William Branham was not the Angel, Moses was not the Angel, Saint John was not the Angel but the Angel was following Moses. The same Angel was following William Branham. The same Angel was in the world even at the same time John the Baptist was in the world.

The same Angel was in the world before Moses was in the world, even before Abraham, Branham was in world. The same Angel was in the world before Creation.

He (The Angel) is the first and the last. He is even the beginning of Creation. He is all and all. All the prophets that God sent died but this Angel did not die. He remains alive.

We are in the Ministry of the Angel not because we merited it but it is because of His mercy. He blinded people’s eyes that they would not see it, but He gave us mercy opening our eyes that we will see this Truth. –Son of MAN

(HAVING THIS MINISTRY WE FAINT NOT)

CHAPTER SEVEN


WHY JUDGMENT MUST BEGIN IN GOD’S OWN HOUSE

God’s Judgment, where will this Judgment start? First Peter chapter 4 verse 17 through 18: “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

2. And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? (KJV).

3. If in all your efforts so far, it is very difficult to save you, what do you think will happen to people that have no knowledge of God at all?

4. If in your toils and labour in this Faith; in your sincere attempt to please God, yet He has come down with His Judgment and look at what you are weighing; what do you think will happen to the Pentecostals that ridicule His Name; that have not even known His Name at all?

5. “For the time (has arrived) for judgment to begin with the Household of God’, the time has what? Yes, move on, ‘and if it begins with us, what will (be) the end of those who do not respect or believe or obey the good news (the gospel) of God?

6. And if the righteous are barely saved, what will become of the Godless and wicked?” (Amp).

7. What is God’s Household? Or who is this God’s Household? Or where can we find it? Where did God place His Household from which the Judgment will take off?

8. Hebrew chapter 3 verse 4 through 6: “For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

9. And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;

10. But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.” (KJV).

11. “For (of course) every house is built and furnished by someone, but the builder of all things and the furnisher (of the entire equipment of all things) is God.

12. And Moses certainly was faithful in the administration of all God’s house (but it was only) as a ministering servant. (In his entire ministry he was but) a testimony to the things which were to be spoken (the revelations to be given afterward in Christ.)

13. But Christ (the messiah) was faithful over his (own father’s) house as a son (and master of it) and it is we who are (now members) of this house, if we hold fast and firm to the end our joyful and exultant confidence and sense of triumph in our hope (in Christ).”(Amp).

14. So, you are the people that will form God’s own house and you cannot form God’s own house in unrighteousness. You see why the Judgment starts from God’s own house?

GOD’S OWN HOUSE MUST BE A PERFECT EXAMPLE

You see why the Judgment starts with you; it starts with Me? If you are not seeing yourself from this angle, please start seeing it so immediately. You see why the Message is sounding the way it is sounding all this while?

16. God’s own house must be a perfect example. If God says, “The house of a servant of God must be exemplary,” He simply means that my own house must be exemplary. You see why it must be a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle or blemish?

17. This is because that glorious Church represents God’s own house. Can sin be associated with it? No. Can unbelief be associated with it? No. Now, the Judgment has arrived and it has started in God’s own house, whose house we are.

18. Since it is sounding like this in our midst, how do you think somebody outside will escape? Can somebody escape it outside when they do not know the way of escape? We that know how to escape; we that have been taught all these years; we that have learnt from Him, are yet to find our feet.

19. Many of us have not escaped, for many have not known God; many are running when it is too late. Many are running to avoid the rain when the rain has already drenched them. He revealed this from the very beginning. They thought we were playing all this while. Now we have come to the D-day; we have come to the examination day, yet I am seeing somebody trying to make his note up-to-date.

20. All that came in, He pointed them back to the old Message—back to tape. He said, “This is the only way you can make it.”

21. They thought He was playing. Now it is too late. I am not trying to put fear into anybody; I am telling you the whole truth as I received it because the Church of God is God’s earthly calendar. Whatever God will do to the Universe, He will start with the Church. The Church of God is the world’s watchman that will signal alarm to the world. The moment the Church goes away, the whole world must be in the worst darkness.

22. Watch the Judgment starting with us. We are now the house; we are the members of that house, and Judgment started in His house to know who is qualified to be the members of that house; this is the Investigative Judgment.

23. That is why He told us something concerning Jerusalem; He will use what? He will use candle to search very well so that no impersonator, no pretender will remain there.

ASPIRE FOR THE GREAT ANGEL—THE SON OF MAN

What is God’s candle? It is His Word. God is our Lawgiver— The Supreme Lawgiver. He is equally our Judge—The Supreme Judge—as we can see in Isaiah chapter 33 verse 22: “For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.” KJV).

25. Ephesians chapter 2 verse 19 through 22: “Therefore you are no longer outsiders (exiles, migrants and aliens, excluded from the rights of citizens), but you now share citizenship with the saints (God’s own people consecrated and set apart for Himself); and you belong to God’s ( own) household.

26. You are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus himself the chief cornerstone.

27. In him the whole structure is joined (bound, welded) together harmoniously, and it continues to rise (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord (a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated and sacred to the presence of the Lord). In him (and in fellowship with one another) you yourselves also are being built up (into his structure) with the rest to form a fixed abode (dwelling place) of God in, (by, through) the Spirit.” ((AMP).

28. How I wish we really understand these Scriptures. If we actually understand these Scriptures, it will help us better. You will know why this Investigative Judgment has started with us.

29. God will be a partial Judge if he judges the world and spares His people. Whatever He condemns in our midst, He will condemn in the world. God is trying to remove “worldliness” from His people.

30. Anybody that is behaving like the world will go back to the world. If you behave like God, you remain with God. But when your actions are telling us that you are worldly, you are like the world, no doubt; if you are such a person and you remain in this Faith, you are in custody—that is prison custody.

31. I will be a foolish man if I remain in the Faith and face condemnation. If I discover that I have become an Ethiopian who cannot change his colour, who is trained on how to practise music and revise it, I will simply jump out.

32. Will anybody be saved in the Church?

33. Second Corinthians chapter 5 verse 9 through 10: “Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.

34. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” (KJV).

35. “Therefore, whether we are at home (on earth away from Him) or away from home (and with Him), we are constantly ambitious and strive earnestly to be pleasing to him.

36. For we must all appear and be revealed as we are before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive (his pay) according to what he had done in the body, whether good or evil (considering what his purpose and motive have been, and what he has achieved, being busy with, and giving himself and his attention to accomplishing).” (AMP).

37. Is this Bible? Nothing is left there again. Can you twist this Scripture?

38. You see why William Branham shouted when he saw it: “God, I plead for your mercy and all righteousness.” Do you see why Job said, “No man can stand before Him and go scot-free?” It requires God to stand by your side. Without Him, everyone goes to Hell.

39. Aspire for that Great Angel—Christ—who always stands for God’s people, in their defence, to be by your side.

40. You see why God must wrap us in His righteousness? Wrap us in His Holiness; wrap us in His Perfection; in all things. In every way, it must be Christ all over.

41. Christ died for the Church not for the world. Do you know that? That is why we shall all be justified in the end. This is because in Him lies our Judgment. Except He comes and judges us, nobody will.

INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT PREPARES YOU

God knows why this Investigative Judgment is going on before the SEALING so that when you are sealed, you will know that you are sealed.

43. In other words, Investigative Judgment prepares you, shows you your record very well and gives you the last opportunity. This is because it is the Message that dictates the everlasting truth.

44. And now, it is being preached before that Message. If the Message was preached before this time it means all that are counted out are sinners.

45. God can never take in a sinner; He can never take in an unbeliever; which means from now till the day the Message will be preached, He will give you some room to make all wrongs right. He will give you a room to come in or you will be lost forever meaning your salvation from this day lies in your hands.

46. When am I coming with the Message? I do not know. But it can be one evening; it can be Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday or Thursday—I do not know. But will it come? Surely it will come. It will not tarry too long.

47. That is God’s mercy which caused William Branham to demand of God: “Show me where I am wrong; show me the areas I have not yet perfected and then give me time to perfect them.”

48. You see, He is not willing that any should perish. When He said, “all” it does not mean the world; it means among His own people that have laboured with Him all these years. He allowed you to go and score yourself to evaluate yourself.

49. Maybe when you were evaluating yourself, you did not even know where you failed. You were marking good, good, good. Now, He has come to show you that He is a JUST and RIGHTEOUS JUDGE. He can never impose guilt upon you, I mean accuse you falsely. Brethren, on this note, I say remain blessed in Him eternally.
