I am the Spirit of Truth, the Light of the world. Without Me, there is no salvation. Without Me, there is no life. Believe it if you can...
–The Son of Man
FROM: MAN PROPOSES BUT GOD DISPOSES. PP.3 (1st February, 2004)


Now we will first of all discover what blinded the Jews, why they could not recognize the hour of their visitation; why our Jewish brothers or counterparts failed to recognize the hour the Messiah visited them.


Because every generation must have their own day of salvation. When that day is over, no flesh will be saved there again. 
           In the Gentiles’ world, we have our own time, we have the number, and we have our own day, when that day is over no more salvation for the Gentiles.
           Now, the moment they (the Jews) became blind and were cut off, the Voice roared that: “Now, salvation is of the Gentiles.” But initially salvation was of the Jews but because of unbelief, they were blinded; and in order to provoke them to jealousy, Messiah crossed to the Gentiles using us as an instrument to provoke them to jealousy.

GOD’S TIMETABLE
It will take somebody who knows the father of your father to tell you who your grandparents are. The same way it was in their own case, as they were born down there in Egypt, but if you recall down to their father, Jacob, the number that moved down to Egypt was only seventy of them. That was all, but what came out was over two million.
2.         Looking at them, you will think they were living in one room. Was Jacob living in one room with seventy of them? You could see them spreading and spreading until they became great in number. If you cannot count the sand in the shores, so are the children of Israel now.
3.         If you are not an Israelite you can never recognize Jehovah of Israel. If you have no attribute of God, you cannot worship God, because for you to recognize Jehovah and worship Him as God, it then means you must in one way or the other be an Israelite.
4.         Moreover, the Lord told you something when He came down saying, “I have also another sheep that is not of this fold. They also I must gather them that two of you will be one.” Is it Bible?
5.         What is more, you were looking at that flock that God did not know where they are! You think God did not know where He took them to, and that is why He sent Christ, that in Christ He will gather His children that are scattered all over the world. He placed only but a sign: “Anybody that will recognize this man and follow Him, that person is from God because a strange Voice they cannot hear nor follow.”
6.         In Christ the children of God that are scattered all over the world are one.
7.         Ezekiel 37:16 “Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions.” KJV.
8.         Remember Israel was not complete. Let us go further.
9.               Verse 17 through 19: “And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not show us what thou meanest by these?
10.     Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.” KJV.
11.     They shall be one member, The scepter shall not depart from Judah.(See Genesis 49:10).
12.     May be you are not getting the Message, it is flying. What is more, that is exactly what is taking place now. There is no other Message they will hear except this same Message, the same Voice they despised, rejected and killed is what you are hearing now.
13.     Note, the same Voice you are hearing now was the Voice they crucified over there in Israel. The Voice they drove away, that is the Voice that came here and that is the Voice you are hearing till today, and He will remain here till the consummation of all things in the Gentiles take place.
14.     I am telling you that any true Jew that comes into our midst or hear this Message must raise his hands and acknowledge this Voice in your midst to be true. Every true Jew must acknowledge and will tell where this Voice comes from, because now they are waiting for this Voice very anxiously.  That is why they are not leaving any stone unturned, but we are here bragging around thinking that God is waiting for us.
15.     Have I not told you before that God is keeping His own timetable, He is not waiting for you; although He has an appointed number in the Gentiles, He knows how to complete the number overnight. Do not doubt Me in what I am saying. If you want to know the correct thing now let me prove it to you.
16.     Do you know that not all Israelites will be saved, do you know that? All that died the time the Messiah was cut off perished because there was no Saviour. In other words, all that are dying today are perishing, that is why He is only saving the remnants that will remain alive at His coming.
17.     All that died in the Gentile world before He came, all of them perished because the Gentiles was without God and without hope, why? Because they died without the Law and perished without the Law.
18.     When Christ did not come to the Gentiles, they remained idolaters, until Christ came to remove idolatry from people that are willing to surrender
19.     If His doing this is to save all the one forty-four thousand believers, granted that He is taking one forty-four thousand believers, will He take one million here. Looking at the population you will think it is easy to get one forty-four thousand believers. It is not easy to get one forty-four thousand people (believers) in the whole Nigeria. It is not easy to get even ten (10) children of God.
20.     If you know the meaning of being a child of God, you will agree with Me that it is not easy to get one child of God in a village.
21.     When Saint Paul went to a particular town, the Lord said, “No, do not enter, stop here! There is nobody to be saved here, I have no possession here.”
22.     If it is your town that this kind of Message was passed on, don’t you know it is a revelation to you. Well, if you are not aware yet, you had better pray hard. When you come into this Faith you think we are many, no we are not many. If you say, “Everybody go to your own village now,” you will discover that you may be the only person in your own village as a whole, then you will realize that we are not many. Although when we come together it appears we are many but it is not so.
23.     Brother Emma, if you go to your home town you will be the only person, some may get two, some may not even get one but when you come into the Faith you will think that we are many.
24.     What is the population of Nigeria? Granted that all that came in the Pentecost meeting and all that came after Pentecost are children of God, are we up to one thousand-tenth (1/1000), that is, divide Nigeria into one thousand places, are we up to one of the fractions? The population of Nigeria is above hundred million yet in Nigeria as a whole, we are not sure of getting at least hundred children of God.
25.     We have many worshippers but we have very few children of God. Note, not every worshipper is a child of God. Do not be carried away by sentiment. You look at all that come and sit in the fellowship of the Saints each time we gather, do you want to tell me that everybody is going to Paradise? It is God’s Will that everybody in this Faith will go to Paradise, but our rebellious character is what is hindering us, our doubts and unbelief is becoming too much!
26.     When we should see things the way God placed them, we keep on reasoning and reasoning until our eyes have turned red, then we end it cheating ourselves.
27.          Ezekiel 37:16-22: “Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:
28.          And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
29.          And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not show us what thou meanest by these? Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
30.          And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
31.     And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.”
32.     Note, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms anymore at all. You cannot hear about Judah and Israel anymore; they will now have one king ruling over them, that is Almighty God alone; and that is exactly what is going on now. I am telling you to keep watch, see prophecies coming to pass and then make your own perpetration.
33.            Verse 23-24: “Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
34.           And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.” KJV.
35.      The Bible said that when He shall return to His people, He shall seat on the throne of His father David. Then who is David? (See Matthew 1:1).
36.      Then who took Uriah’s wife? Remember, there is no transgression in Jacob. If you trace the Messiah, you will trace the Messiah back to Bath-sheba, and Bath-sheba was Uriah’s wife. Then the questions arise: Why should the Holy Ghost impregnate a man’s wife? Why did Holy Ghost not go to that woman when she was a spinster? Until somebody went and paid the dowry, Holy Ghost now came, mounted and impregnated the woman! Amen.


GRACE
2
GRACE
Note, the calendar is very clear; that is, the timetable is set before our eyes. If we have been wasting our time before, this is the hour we should behave like Daniel: that the hour of our departure has come already, it is around the corner. Israel is waiting patiently and we should equally wait patiently. This is the time we have to be closer, Brethren.
2.         Pray that the Almighty God will help you to understand why this topic is being treated now. I do not know where it is leading us. I do not know how God is going to take this Message. Talk of the Lord coming to confirm this Message, IT IS A MUST. He must crown this Message, but how is He going to crown it I do not know yet.
3.         We are playing with time, challenging authority. It is not the time we should go about murmuring or distracting attentions. Can you imagine God reconciling Ephraim with Judah, that is, reconciling Israel, all of them becoming one? We all have seen it in the book of Ezekiel chapter 20 where the Lord said He is going to be king over them whether they like it or not, that they will not have any other king; that He gave them king in anger and removed him in His wrath. He went further to say that they will never see any other king except He Himself; and now, the Lord has called His Name.
4.         What is my aim? I want to show you how it pleased the Almighty God to reconcile us unto Himself. No man can come to God except he that is from God. If we are not part of God in the beginning, we can never be part of God in the end.
5.         For a man to come back to God, that man must have strayed away from God. In other words, I am trying to confirm it before all of you that what God is doing is going about for His own seeds. All that Almighty God rejected, there is nothing that will make Him take those things again.
6.         For instance, God Who knows all things decided to call His seed from Isaac and no matter all the efforts Abraham made to present his first son Ishmael to Him, God said no and told Abraham to wait, that that promised seed must surely come. That Sarah must surely conceive even at a time when every hope was lost.
7.         Sarah conceived and gave birth to Isaac; and from that Isaac, God has decided to raise up a people unto Himself. If you check from the lineage of Isaac: Isaac begat Jacob and Esau. It pleased Almighty God also to choose Jacob. God called his own people from Jacob and then abandoned Esau.
8.         Hence, from the lineage of Esau in the society today, you can see that there is no man of God that came from the lineage of Esau. Check your Bible very well. When the woman was pregnant, Almighty God said she was conceived of two nations and out of the two nations, one belonged to God; one belonged to the Devil. Thus, the Lord decided to choose Jacob.
9.         Again, if you look at the lineage of Jacob from where the Promise came, Isaac was stricken in age, he was about to die and then he called his son and then made a request. He said, “Go and get meat for me; I would like to eat meat.” He did not specify the type of meat he would like to eat. Then Esau, being a hunter, ran into the bush to see whether he could catch some animal; but Jacob, who was a lazy man, always staying with his mother, was there helpless. There was nothing he could do until the mother aroused his conscience and then put something into existence.
10.     She said, “I cannot close my eyes and then see you going without your father’s blessings, because I love you so much. Look at the request your father has made through your elder brother. Now, pretend as if you were Esau.”
11.     What Jacob could not do, the mother did it for him. That is what we call Grace. If somebody comes to you and says, “Take this bag; hang it on this roof; anybody that will succeed will have eternal life.” All of us will start jumping. Everybody will start making efforts. Maybe, one person decided to sit on the ground quietly without making any effort at all. Unknown to him, somebody just came around with a very long ladder, placed it and said, “My friend, climb; go and hang it!” That is amazing Grace.
12.     If the man is to be left alone there, he can never ever hang that bag. Besides, if all that were making good efforts were asked who could win the price, nobody will suggest that man. I hope somebody is getting me.
13.     This happened so that at the end, the man will not start jumping about. If Esau had succeeded in hunting and then came in to get the blessing, he would have been bragging before Jacob: how he laboured, how He did this and that, but watch Jacob, he had nothing to glory for because he was very weak and accepted he was weak, then God gave him a way out.
14.     We have seen it from the Scriptures that it pleased Almighty God that in the end there will not be Judah, there will not be Ephraim, Israel will no longer be scattered, Israel will be seen from one angle, they would be seen as Israel and nothing more. Remember that it was in the reign of King Rehoboam that it pleased Almighty God to divide the kingdom: ten kingdoms to the North, two kingdoms to the South. I hope somebody is following me.
15.     Moreover, we have been amalgamated since that time. Every effort all the kings made to bring Israel together has been failing, that is why we could still see Judah standing as a separated nation. Remember you will see Gad, as if they are different nations, it should not be so, and as long as God liveth they will never come together as one nation until the time of the end.
16.     Thus, if there is any time Israel is becoming one nation, it is in our day. It is now that Israel has recognized who she is, that she has now come to understand that Palestine is not a part of Israel, but why has she allowed this flag to be flying in Palestine all these years? They were blind.
17.     Palestine is not Israel. If you check the lands God allotted to them, Palestine managed to be there. They were there before Israel came, just like I keep on telling you that this land where we are living now, some people lived in it long ago, and the people that lived here are not part of us. We had to destroy or push them away and then occupy.
18.     The promise that wherever the sole of their feet touched, that land belonged to them, that was the promise God made, and that is the promise Israel is still holding till today. That is why they are claiming anything claimn-able, until the whole nation will join hands together and tell them it is enough.
19.     Israel knows what she is doing. They will never rest until every tribe is fully settled, feeling comfortable on their lands and God will do it.
20.     In the previous chapter, we saw where Almighty God told His servant to bring out his walking stick put something down and join them together, saying that He has joined Israel, Judah and Ephraim, that is, they are now one.
21.     Also, from Bible history, this Ephraim was abandoned because of idolatry. Now Almighty God said that there is no transgression in Israel. If there is no transgression in Israel, is Ephraim not a part of Israel? In other words, He first of all concluded all of them in unbelief so that He will show mercy to all at the same time. I do not know if somebody is getting this Message.
22.     Whatever you will like to call it, call it. When we go to the book of Romans you are going to see these things. Amen.





THE LOST SHEEP OF ISRAEL
3
THE LOST SHEEP OF ISRAEL
Let me show you something in the Bible. I said something in the beginning and I cut it off for so many reasons.
2.               Jeremiah 30: 8-11: For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
3.               Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.
4.              For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.” KJV.
5.         Just note that word, that God has decided to punish Israel because of their sins so that His Word will come to pass. The Lord said, “Let hands join hands, no sinner will go unpunished,” and then God is now justifying  Himself by saying that punishing Israel does not mean abandoning them.
6.         If you punish your child for breaking your plate after which you disown your child also, you are a wicked father. That means double punishment. Try to catch me where I am heading to.
7.         The reason for our suffering is because we shall not be abandoned, the reason why we are going through what we are going through in this Faith is because God loves us, we are receiving the recompense for our sins in this flesh. God is chastising us so that in the end when He shall make a full end of the nations, He will never make a full end of His people. Having punished us He has now justified us and declared us discharged and acquitted, that is, not guilty.
8.         That is why, while we are crying here, while we are sorrowing in our houses for any sin we have committed, making our confessions, passing through so many troubles in the flesh, all as a result of our iniquities, you look out in the society, you see them prospering, things going well for all of them, then you start wondering what is happening.  
9.         The Lord has set them aside, they are not God’s business for now, their own day of judgement is coming. That is why the Bible said that if we judge ourselves in the flesh, we shall not be judged again when God will judge the world. 
10.     In other words, God has now judged us and declared us not guilty while we continue with Him, hearing Him, pleading with Him everyday.
11.     I was talking to my Brother saying, “Look, I want to tell you something about Israel. The only people Israelites are happy to associate with are the Igbos”.  Go and verify from our people that are in Israel. Ask them how they are feeling there. The only people that Israelites are very, very free to associate with are the Igbos in Africa. There is a reason for that.
12.     Watch, they love us because we carry the Bible and we have the fear of Jehovah in our hearts to some extent; but they hate us because the way they see their God is not the way we see our God. Remember that the God we are worshipping is the God of Israel.
13.     The God of Israel, the God for which course we are gathering for fellowship, He is not the God of Nigeria. Nigeria has her god, every nation has her god. It requires Israelites to worship the God of Israel.
14.     We are not worshipping god of the moon, nor god of the mountains or god of the stars like the Moslems and the Hindus, no, we are worshipping God of Israel, but our problem is that many that said they are worshipping God of Israel do not know the nature of God of Israel, and this is the reason why they are misunderstanding us today, why? They are still blind for their eyes have not been opened.
15.     If we are to go to Israel today, there is no way we can carry this Faith there. Until the time is come, all that will be there will practise Judaism, for that is their religion for now. That is why all the nations where Israel are scattered you can never see them erecting a synagogue or going to Church. To them, there is no place where they can go and worship this God the way we worship Him; though they will be one million in Nigeria, they can never gather in any place saying they are worshipping this God. 
16.     In the whole countries in the world, Israel can never gather in any synagogue outside Israel to worship God. For that reason, they can never sing the song of Moses in a strange land, neither can they worship their God in a strange land. That is why they are going home.
17.     Israel can never worship God in a strange land, it is impossible. That is why now is their time, they will never miss it.
18.     I am trying to establish from the Holy Scriptures that they are going home in accordance with God’s Word. God prophesied it ahead of time and then fixed a time.
19.     The moment you see them going back which is their last exodus, that marks finishing touches of the time of the Gentiles. In other words, the time of the Gentiles are now over, He has accomplished the purpose why He came here, that is to say, the reason why He came to the Gentiles has been accomplished.
20.     If you miss this Message, there is no way you can hook it up very well, unless you go back to the very beginning again.
21.     I said something in the beginning of this Message. I said that I will close my mouth concerning Daniel, but let Me restrict myself to  Ephraim, at least that is where we all belong. IF ANYBODY WILL ASK YOU, “WHERE DO YOU BELONG TO?” TELL HIM THAT GOD POSTED YOU TO A COUNTRY CALLED NIGERIA BUT YOU CAME FROM THE TRIBE OF EPHRAIM. Tell him plainly by your stature, by your character, by your language that you are an Ephraimite.
22.     Look at Hosea 4: 17 “Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.” KJV.
23.     Ephraim, who is now being reconciled back to God, was formerly abandoned because he joined himself to idols and God said, “Let him alone,” and then at the end, because the end shall declare all things, the same God said, “Oh Ephraim, how can I abandon you,” was it not where He said, "Oh! Ephraim, Ephraim my son, how can I abandon you, it will be difficult for me though you deserted me.”
24.     What God is now including is the lost sheep of Israel. Remember in the beginning, when the Message is for the circumcised, He asked them to go out and preach the Word, and charged them never to enter into the house of the Samaritans or the Samarians. Samaria was completely excluded in the program. They were only commanded to go to the lost sheep of Israel until during the INQUISITION, Samaria received the Message. Who received the Message in Samaria? The abandoned people there. Nature will even teach you more than what we are saying.
25.     If you are from Israel, it then means you are a part of Jacob. When the Lord said that the sons and daughters of Abraham or Isaac or Jacob will be like the sand of the sea, and we said Amen to it, do you think that the Lord will allow them to remain in one place?
26.     They scattered everywhere so that God through Christ will now reconcile them in one fold.
27.     In the book of Ezekiel chapter 37, we saw David again coming back to rule. Once a king is always a king, but no mention was made about Saul, why? Saul was a human king, but David was a spiritual king. David could not commit sin: “blessed is the man in whom God does not input sin.”
28.     What you called transgression of David was not transgression before God. That is why Samuel warned the people of Israel seriously, saying, “No matter how great you may think you have sinned in His sight, do not even abandon Him and join yourselves to idol. Do not join yourselves to other nations. If you do that, He will abandon you forever. But as long as you are continuing with Him, continue, at the end He must surely save you, because He has called you His people.”
29.     He has called you His own people, whatever the Lord did for the people of Israel, He did it for His Name’s sake. When the people could not sanctify His Name in the eyes of the heathens, what did He do? He came down with His mighty hands and redeemed them, and He has sanctified His own Name in the eyes of other nations who then trusted and feared Him.
30.     When they thought He had abandoned His people, He said, “Do not rejoice. I have not abandoned them.” He turned to persecute the people that persecuted His people, that is, all the nations that tormented the people of God, He God turned against them.
31.     That is why, all that were laughing at David thinking that it was over, they will be surprised seeing David coming back to his throne again. The Bible said that Christ will stay on the throne of His Father David.
32.     Do not worry. You will understand me as we continue. I believe it with all my heart that Christ will stay on that throne. In other words, in the new Jerusalem David will be the king. This New Jerusalem, David must be the king.

THE RESTORATION OF ISRAEL
33.     Jeremiah 30 : 17  “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying , This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.” KJV.
34.     Note, all Israelites are regarded as outcasts in all the strange lands. Strangers just rushed immediately and occupied their territories. That is why you hear about what was going on everyday in Israel, because they now want to settle down.
35.          Verse 18-24: “Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwelling places; and the city shall be built upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof.
36.          And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
37.          Their children also shall be as formerly, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them. And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the LORD.
38.          And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.
39.     The fierce anger of the LORD shall not return, until he has done it , and until he has performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it.” KJV.
40.     I want you to see the difference. God has spoken concerning the restoration of Israel again, and immediately after the restoration of Israel, the wrath of God will sweep over the whole earth. In other words, the moment we see Israel now fully established, it means that God has concluded His plans with the Gentiles. What else do we expect? The wrath of God upon the children of disobedience in the Gentiles.
41.     That is to say that God has His program. The earlier we understand it, the better for us. When you are reading the Bible, try to know your own promise, otherwise, you start claiming what does not belong to you.
42.     God has given Gentiles their timetable, and their time piece remains the Jews. He has allotted time for the Gentiles and if we are not careful, that time may run out on us yet we will not know. That is why I feel this is the correct time we should run a teaching like this: linking events with prophecies so that our eyes will open wide, and we will recognize the hour we are living in.
43.     Jeremiah 31: 3 “The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying , Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”KJV.
44.     Underline it. The Lord has loved His people with an everlasting love, do you know the meaning of everlasting? Let see a scripture for confirmation.
45.     Saint John 13:1. “Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.” KJV.
46.     In other words, He cannot love us today and hate us tomorrow. If He is hating us, we term it the hatred He had for Ephraim. If He is hating us, He is hating the sin in us, He is not hating us. What He is punishing is the sin in us; He is not punishing us.
47.     This is from the mouth of the Lord Jesus Christ, “Having loved His own,” did it say the world? If you turn to the book of Saint John chapter seventeen, Jesus said, “I pray not for the world, I am praying for my own.”
48.     Saint John 17:9 “I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.” KJV.
49.     I know my sheep and my sheep know me, I call them by their names and they follow me, and I believe it is truth, that was why He could give them command and all of them will follow, so they continued.
50.     Thus, Jesus has confirmed that the Father had an everlasting love for Israel and He is manifesting it in our eyes that He is restoring all Israelites back to their homeland, and in their homeland He is going to open up the graves of all that died. All that died are going to come back to life again and all of them will receive everlasting life in accordance with the Covenant He made with their fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
51.     That is why Saint Paul said, “When He comes back to His people, all Israelites shall be saved according to the Promise that was given without Law.” In other words, the Law that came four hundred years after, cannot cancel the promise.
52.     As a result, going into the grave is not the end of the whole thing. He decided to stop that person so that His Name will no longer be blasphemed in that man’s character. Hence, if I keep on committing sin without repentance, He will ask me to go to the grave: “Go there and wait, enough is enough;” so that I will be using the heat inside waiting for that day, and that day when He is going to resurrect me and resurrect the saints that died, this corrupted body will put on an incorruptible body because it was sowed in corruption, raised in incorruption. That is the matter, but it is not so with the world.
53.     A situation where the rat went swimming with the lizard, who will die of cold? If you are following a seed of God, you had better be careful. Do not do anything because he did it. Yes he will do it and go free but if you say you will do it you will not come back to tell the tale.
54.     If you are asked what is the greatest crime now, you will say it is killing your fellow human being. That is man’s slogan. However, look at the people of Israel go to war. They are very bloody; killing people to them is just as killing rats, but here when you kill somebody you will start trembling, they will call him wicked man, wicked woman but to God’s people in Israel, it is not so.
55.     Even till this very day, killing is nothing in Israel. Israel believe that they can never die, that is why even if they remain one person, that one person will keep on fighting. Why? He believes he will never die, and he cannot die. A child of God never dies.
56.     God came to the despised of the Gentiles to look for His own that was abandoned there as a result of idolatry. Another name for Gentiles is heathen, do you know that?
57.     Thus, when the Bible says, “Stop behaving like the heathen,” it is also saying that you should stop behaving like the Gentiles. Note this thing very well.
58.     The people of God went to Egypt and many of them learnt Egyptian culture, and the thing was so sweet to them that when they heard “Let us go,” they could not go. Then they joined themselves to idols and the Lord said, “No more!” Their action was regarded as whoredom, idolatry, prostitution and fornication. Amen.

ISRAEL IS GENTILES’ TIMETABLE
Jeremiah 31: 4, “Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry.”KJV. 
2.         Have you seen what the Lord is saying: Israel that was defiled is now virgin. In other words, nobody can defile the Church.
3.               Jeremiah 31: 5-8 “Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things. For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God.
4.              For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD, save thy people, the remnant of Israel.
5.         Behold, I will bring them from the North Country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.” KJV.
6.         Do you see that? “Shall return thither! Which means future tense. Today are you not witnessing all? Even Russia has released their own, and look at what God is doing, from the time Israel left Russia, Russia has never known anything called peace. All the countries the Jews have been living in have never known peace since the Jews left them.
7.         From the time the Israelites left Sudan, Sudan has never seen peace at all. Recently, the Jews left Congo, and war swept Congo. They left Ethiopia, and war came to Ethiopia. Anywhere they left, war will take over there. In other words, the peace of the Earth is and remains the people of God. Any day we leave here, something will take place.
8.         I was listening to VOA recently and they were reporting that for the past eight weeks now, Russia is stranded, lifestyle is stranded, no work, no movement, all labour unions are all on strike. Students are on indefinite strike with their teachers. No payment of salaries for the past eight months in Russia. Market women are demonstrating, transport system grounded, railway lines grounded, mines grounded.
9.         VOA said that both the economy and the lifestyle, everything is now at a standstill.
10.     Everything became grounded because their jacky has left them. That was what happened in Egypt. The reason why they could not allow the people to go was that if they could now permit the people to go, who will now talk for them, who will now wash and labour for them?
11.     What is more, immediately they left, hardship came to Egypt. Watch events, the Lord said that all of them must come back, including pregnant women, infants, newly born babies, crippled ones, both the blind and the lame, all of them must surely come back and with our eyes, we see all these things coming to pass.
12.     Israel coming back to their own land marks the end of God’s dealings with the Gentiles. All that lived on Earth and witnessed the scattering of the Jews, not all are living today to witnessed their going back.
13.     Israel is our timetable. Israel is our time piece. How is it this way? This is because they were the people that were cut off so that we will be grafted in. If they were not cut off we would not have come in.
14.     Now that God is about to reconcile them to Himself, it then means our own time is over or it will be over very shortly, sooner than you think.
15.            Jeremiah 31: 9 “They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.” KJV.
16.     You see, we are the firstborn among many brethren. Whatever people may say about it, I do not care! All I know is that I am the firstborn for it is “Thus said the Lord.”
17.     When God was calling His children both the ones from the concubines and the ones born by the maidservants, all are children of Jacob.
18.     I thank God for what He is doing. Ephraim joined himself to idol and God said, “Leave him alone,” in other words, when he will realize his foolishness, he will come back. That does not bother him. when he becomes tired of worshipping idols he will come back.
19.     “Let us go, leave him alone. Let us go, look at Ephraim.” Now who is the first son of Jacob? Reuben, but now God has chosen his first son. If you know the ways of God you see why He said, “My ways are not your ways neither are my thoughts your thoughts.”
20.     If you see Ephraim where he is performing ritual with fowl, bending under a tree, worshipping idol and you join him, can you see that you are in trouble! Anybody that is joining Ephraim in idol worshipping, is he not in trouble today?
21.     You say, “Thank God we have gotten this one from them, thank God this one will be with us here,” who told you? Do you know that in one second he will go home?
22.          Jeremiah 31: 9-10: “They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.
23.          Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.” KJV.
24.     You see, He that scattered Israel shall gather her, because He had loved them with an everlasting love.
25.     Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” KJV.
26.     He that has began a good work in you; He did not say that He will become tired so that you will complete it, no. He does not want your help, can man help God? Ephraim did not merit it, there is no record in the Bible to prove that Ephraim repented one bit. However, the Lord said He will never go unpunished: “I will punish him but I will not cast him away.”
27.     We are the true sons and daughters of Ephraim. If you were not a part of God, you can never hear God’s Words. If you did not come from God, you will call what we are saying heresy. Your problem is that you see many people carrying Bible, calling upon the Name of God and God is answering them.
28.     Let me tell you, the God we are worshipping is not the God of Samaria, yet He showed love to Samaria. This God showed love to Moab, yet they did not seek Him. He has allowed His rain to fall on both the wicked and the righteous—that is God’s gift. Moab is carrying Bible, Samaria is carrying Bible, Judah is carrying Bible, everybody has the right to carry Bible, the Devil can carry Bible, no problem; let the Amelekites carry Bible, no problem, Palestine carry Bible, no problem for the problem is not carrying Bible.
29.     Happy is the man whose God is a man, whose God and Maker is the God of Jacob. Jacob is my boy, I am a Father to Israel. Remember, Israel means Jacob. I am a father to Jacob, Israel is my first son.
30.     How would you have felt if you were in his place? You know who Rachael is? Who will be that happy women to see her children being cut off and she will be rejoicing? Since that day, Rachael has remained weeping, waiting for the consolation of Israel, when all sons and daughters will come back and Ephraim is there also.
31.     I told you, I do not care, whatever you must have read in the sermon books, whatever Prophet William Branham must have prophesied, that is not what I am  saying. However, I am declaring what the Lord had said.
32.     You see, people got a wind of this a little, they thought God reconciling Ephraim means leaving Nigeria and going to the Jews, maybe to ask them to create a place, but that is not the Will. He sent you a Messiah, and in Him is your reconciliation. He will reconcile His sons and daughters that are scattered abroad in Christ. You go back to your tapes, that is, the Message titled “God’s Plan in Establishing the Church.”
33.     He gave us Christ that came and reconciled us in one, that is the essence.
34.          Jeremiah 31: 35-37: “Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me forever.
35.     Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD.” KJV.
36.     In other words, if it is impossible for this thing to take place, it is impossible for a seed of Israel to get lost.  
37.     Hosea 14:9 “Who is wise, and he shall understand these things ? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.” KJV.
38.      Jeremiah 9:12 Who is the wise man, that may understand this? and who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD hath spoken, that he may declare it, for what the land perisheth and is burned up like a wilderness, that none passeth through?” KJV.
39.     Daniel 12:10 “Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.” KJV.
40.     Almighty God has decided that in our day that all these promises shall come to pass. He had also decided that we are going to be the last people that will be called God’s people in the Gentiles; and He is doing it in no other way than by the Gospel we are preaching.
41.     How do you know God’s people?  It is through this Gospel which we are preaching and what we are preaching is the Voice of God. Besides, what God is doing by His preaching is calling out His own people to come out, to return, and that “call to return” was first heard in the book of Hosea chapter six verse one through two.
42.           Hosea 6:1-2: Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
43.      After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.” KJV.
44.          Jeremiah 32:26-28: “Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying, Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
45.     Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans, and into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he shall take it.” KJV.
46.          Verse 36-42: “And now therefore thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning this city, whereof ye say, It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence;
47.          Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:
48.         And they shall be my people, and I will be their God: And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me forever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:
49.         And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.
50.     Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul. For thus saith the LORD; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.” KJV.
51.     Brethren, God is wonderful. Blessed is the man that has the God of Israel as his God. No wonder Ruth said, “I will follow you to the end. Your God will be my God, your people will be my people.” What happened? She saw something in the God of Israel. No wonder David said mercy is always in Him, God has and is always pardoning iniquities. God will not hold His anger forever unto them that fear Him.
52.     Now, all I am trying to establish here is that Israel cannot be established without God as their all and all.  All these years, they have been staying without their God, in other word they have been scattered in strange land where they ran to with their God, and this God now want them to go back so that they will be one people unto Him, He will be their God forever and ever; and there will not be any other people outside Israel that will be called  the people of God.
53.     Do you all know that after our departure that our coming back again will no longer be here? When the Elect departs from this Earth to meet Him in the air, there they will stay until the Word of God upon the children of disobedience is over, and then when He shall be coming with thousands of His saints, to rule, He is coming with you, He is coming with me
54.     Then when the new Jerusalem is established, you are a part of the new Jerusalem and a part of the new Earth and dwell with Him in righteousness forever and ever.
55.     In other words, by so doing, all His children must have come back to Him: One flock, one Shepherd. Have you now seen it that all that have scattered from all the nations will come back at the appointed time. But all these people that do not know Scriptures, you see them packing their bags saying they are going back to Israel that they are Israelites, that is not the way, and the people could not accept them for they could not establish their tribe.
56.     Anybody from Ephraim can never go there to establish his tribe. It cannot happen because he was abandoned in the North because of idolatry. When His people were fighting the war, he did not join hands, so he could not conquer any nation so that he could dwell. Thus, that which he could not do because he was weak, the Messiah has now come and Christ has done it for them,  reconditions us in our homeland so that we will become one with our brethren.
57.     That is why the Ministry we have is the ministry of reconciliation. Where relationship is not severed there is no need for reconciliation. Are we reconciling God to Devil, or are we reconciling God to Cain or Esau; as the Edomites? In other words, we are reconciling God with His Word.
58.     It then means reconciling the strained relationship with His children that are on Earth. There must be some children of God whose relationship with Him are strained, and then God sent for the Message by which they will be reconciled to all that will accept it, and we have only one thing by which we know people that belong to God, and that is this Message, that is the Voice of God.
59.     Do not worry, I am going somewhere.

REINCARNATION: MYTH OR REALITY?
60.         Jeremiah 33:23-26: “Moreover the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying, The two families which the LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before them.
61.           Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth;
62.     Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.” KJV.
63.     Is God not fulfilling His Word? You know, some started laughing at them thinking that God has despised and rejected them forever, and then God heard it. Have you now seen that kingship will never depart from David! When God is coming to rule His people, He will put on David’s dress and everybody will bow down before Him, yet He is God on His Throne, then the question arises: REINCARNATION: MYTH OR REALITY?
64.     You see why if you keep on having controversy over something, simply close your mouth because whatsoever people cannot understand they say it does not exist. Some will even argue by saying, “How can reincarnation be real? It is impossible!” Why? Because they cannot search to know where the truth lies.
65.     Some will say, “Somebody reincarnates once,” because they are confused about it, I call them “free thinkers,” but when you go to the land of truth I will show you thousands upon thousands, and I will make you to understand that till today, God is not in the business of creating human beings. If God keeps on creating human beings it means He will also enlarge the Earth but the Earth is specific, there is no space.
66.     People are saying they are reclaiming the land from the sea, I just laugh at them. They do not know anything. How can you reclaim the land from the sea? The sea is fixed, no one can cross its natural boundaries. Let me use the Niger River in Onitsha as an instance.
67.     No matter how the size, it can never over flow its boundaries into Nkisi. Nkisi has its own course and cannot cross over too. If you know a place where water spring fast and form a pond, go there and fill it with concrete, leave it, just give it sometime, come back and check, you will surely see the water back. Even if you call the Julius Berger Company to fill it with sand, all you need to do is give it sometime, you can never resist it from coming out again. Amen.
