I AM NOT THE ATTRACTION LIKE JESUS CHRIST WAS NOT THE ATTRACTION IN HIS DAY. MY MESSAGE IS NOT A PLEASANT ONE THAT CAN ATTRACT THE WORLD. I ONLY CAME FOR MY OWN- MY PEOPLE. BELIEVE IT IF YOU CAN…
I am the Fountain of the Living Water. Whosoever shall come to Me and drink,
shall never go thirsty again, but have everlasting life. Believe it if you can... — The Son of Man.

( A MESSAGE PREACHED AFTER BRIDAL WATCH VOL. 4) Preached on Sunday, 7th June, 2015 At  THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE SUPREME INTELLIGENCE” “Truth has no substitute” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE

THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE
The message, “No Deception of the Truth: Volume one, page 60”. The caption there says, “We are in the Faith for eternal life”.

2.           From verse 13. Now, all the while you have been coming here, what do you gain?
3.           All the while you have been coming here, what do you gain?
4.           Let us now agree as a Church and face the stark realities of our Faith. I have reviewed these things so that everybody will see the matter as clear as the day.
5.           From now, you will start appreciating one another - that my Sister is coming here because she doesn’t want to perish; my Brother is coming here because he doesn’t want to perish.
6.           And since all of us have one motive, that we don’t want to perish, let us now close ranks collectively with one mind and face the stark reality.
7.            Anything that is contrary, we will collectively say no to it. In other words, we as a Church will collectively preserve this Faith in its purity. I do not want to perish; you do not want to perish.
8.           You saw other places; you did not want to be there. This is where you want to be. It is not you yourself taking the decision, but God doing it in you.
9.           Brethren, why are we here? God Himself has said, He has viewed everything and reviewed everything and has come to the conclusion that of a truth, all that are here, they have something in their hearts. Their target, their aim is nothing but eternal life.
10.        Nobody wants to perish. And He said, “Since it is truth, let us now close ranks and then work towards preserving this Faith. For nobody wants to perish. Outside this Faith, we are all perishing.
11.        Outside this Faith it is death. He told us that He had left us a seed and that is why we are alive in Him. We should close ranks and preserve this Faith. Why are we here, is it not for eternal life? I believe that is why we are all here: for eternal.
12.        The last verse of where we read said, This is where you want to be. It is not you yourself taking the decision, but God doing it in you.
13.        St. John gospel chapter 15 from verse 1 through 7. I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
14.       Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you.
15.      As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches:
16.      He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 
17.      If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. KJV.
18.      “I am the true Vine, and my Father is the Gardener.  He lops off every branch that doesn’t produce. And he prunes those branches that bear fruit for even larger crops.  He has already tended you by pruning you back for greater strength and usefulness by means of the commands I gave you.  
19.      Take care to live in me, and let me live in you. For a branch can’t produce fruit when severed from the vine. Nor can you be fruitful apart from me. “Yes, I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in me and I in him shall produce a large crop of fruit. For apart from me you can’t do a thing.  
20.      If anyone separates from me, he is thrown away like a useless branch, withers, and is gathered into a pile with all the others and burned.  
21.      But if you stay in me and obey my commands, you may ask any request you like, and it will be granted! My true disciples produce bountiful harvests. This brings great glory to my Father. LB. Amen.
22.      We have been hearing for two, three weeks. God has been trying to introduce Himself once again to us. And I want us to understand that none of us ever chose ourselves to be here. None of us ever chose this God. None of us chose God. He Himself decided it, came down, identified with us. We never knew anything and then He started working in us.
23.      Look at what we heard in the message titled “Bridal Watch, volume 4”. The tonic we have received, everything dovetailing. And where we read in “No Deception is of the Truth”, it ended by saying:  “It is God making His decision in us.”
24.      Thus, the ability to do a thing is just God. In other words, there is nothing we can do on our own. He said, “Wherever you are and there is trouble, do not begin to look up and down, run to this place and wait for further instructions.”
25.      And He said that He will assign us to somebody who will lead us while He Himself will go forth to wage the war. Hence, He is the object of the war. Don’t you know who is the architect of that war?
26.      In line with what we heard, God said that we, being in the congregation is not a guarantee that we have been saved; we must be found in Him. And we must know Him. For that has been His intention from the beginning.
27.      Hence, He said that He has espoused us to everything, starting from the bible, from what we knew to what we never knew, introducing Himself to us why He is God.
28.      And now we are at the close of the age, it is very clear, everything is declaring the end, the end, the end! I want us to consider a scripture.
29.      Exodus chapter 19 verse 9. “And the Lord said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee forever. And Moses told the words of the people unto the Lord. KJV.
30.      “Then he said to Moses, “I am going to come to you in the form of a dark cloud, so that the people themselves can hear me when I talk with you, and then they will always believe you. LB.
31.      Chapter 20 verses 18 through 23. And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die. 
32.      And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was. 
33.      And the Lord said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven. Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold. KJV. 
34.      All the people saw the lightning and the smoke billowing from the mountain, and heard the thunder and the long, frightening trumpet blast; and they stood at a distance, shaking with fear. 
35.      They said to Moses, “You tell us what God says and we will obey, but don’t let God speak directly to us, or it will kill us.” “Don’t be afraid,”
36.      Moses told them, “for God has come in this way to show you his awesome power, so that from now on you will be afraid to sin against him!” As the people stood in the distance, Moses entered into the thick darkness where God was.
37.      Moses entered into the thick what? Darkness where God was.
38.       And the Lord told Moses to be his spokesman to the people of Israel. “You are witnesses to the fact that I have made known my will to you from heaven.
39.      You are witnesses of that fact that I have done what? Made known My Will from heaven. 
40.      Remember, you must not make or worship idols made of silver or gold or of anything else! LB.
41.      Brethren, from Exodus chapter 19 verse 9, God told Moses He was coming down in a Thick Cloud.
42.      “And the Lord said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee forever. And Moses told the words of the people unto the Lord.
43.      In chapter 20, God said He displayed those signs; “Seeing that I have spoken to you, you have seen these manifestations...”
44.      In other words, God seeing what was in a man, that man is unpredictable, a little thing, he might begin to shiver and begin to deviate, He (God) had to do something that would stick in their memory. He had to come down in a Thick Cloud, He thundered and the people quaked: “Moses, please, enough.” In 1996, 7th April, before then, on 24th March, the Lord said we should come here on 7th April that we might see He that has been having dealings with us all these years to banish unbelief.
45.      In the year 2012, He told us that whenever God wants to magnify His name among His people, He would do what? Show us His original body. Hence, He stopped us from taking photographs. If we had been taking photographs till now, the whole of this wall would have been filled with supernatural manifestation around the Tabernacle He has chosen. I am saying; let it not be a dream. Let us know He, understand He that is in our midst. That He is no other being but the Almighty God.” It must be very clear to you as an individual. There must be a point where your faith must anchor for Jacob had an experience. The bible said that Jacob wrestled with God till daybreak. When the Angel told Jacob to allow Him go, Jacob held Him, insisting that the Angel should bless him.
46.      The bible said that the Angel struck Jacob’s hip and knocked it out of joint. Then Jacob started limping as a mark. Jacob could not forget that he met God face to face. And in all we have seen, God has kept on asking, “Was this photograph taken in My parlour? Was the photograph taken in My compound? May be He would say, “Get ready” and then he would do abracadabra.
47.      Everybody was taking randomly and we were seeing things in faraway places. Who is this person? He will stay here and tell us things happening in the world.
48.      When you tune in your radio and television, you see the things happening. Who is He? Has He not displayed the supernatural attributes of the Deity in Him? Is it clear to you or are you still questioning?
49.      You must be fully convinced by personal revelation. If God is still shouting that somebody may be here yet not in the Faith, that would be the greatest disappointment.
50.      Let us look at, “No Deception is of the Truth” once again. Page 47. If you know Him, understand Him, what actually is expected of you?
51.      Remember He said, since we have all come here for eternal life, let us now join hands together, close ranks and protect this Faith, for that is our life.
52.      Outside this Faith, we are dead. Page 47 verse 10 through 18. The caption says, “ANYTHING THAT IS NOT DONE BY REVELATION IS SIN”. I do not want you to fear me, but I want you to fear God; do not believe me, but believe God. Do not reverence me, but reverence God, because I trust that by now, you must have known who God is.
53.      Anything that is not done by revelation is sin. Whatever that is not done by revelation is not done by faith, because faith is revelation; it is sin. Your fear, your reverence, adoration, worship must be by faith and revelation. It must be by revelation in the sense that from your experience from the Word of God, you have discovered for yourself. You are sure and certain that whatever you are doing is what is necessary. You are not doing it because any man is compelling you to do that. You are not doing it so that people can see you and praise you; you are doing it because you know it is what is required of you. You are sure; you are certain. As many as have come to this standard, they are the people I call “matured Children of God”.
54.      They are the people that do not walk by sight. They are not aiming at pleasing Brother or Sister; they aim at pleasing God. Once God is pleased, they do not care about what others are saying; and this is the duty of every true Children of God.
55.      He is always trying to be in the right relationship with his maker, his God. It is his obligation. Once he notices that he is on the wrong side, at the preaching of the word, you will see him taking correction and he is doing it by revelation.
56.      Who will do that? A true seed of God.
57.      He is doing it by revelation in the sense that he has already discovered his error. He has discovered where He has erred. Now, he has taken measures to correct it for he knows what God needs from him.
58.      He will be doing it with joy; I say he will be doing that thing with joy. It is only then that he will begin to appreciate whosoever God has used to correct him. It is only then that he will begin to appreciate God’s love for him.
59.      Otherwise, he will hate even what God is doing and will put everything to fight. He will equally come to a point where he will be having the feeling that every person in the Fellowship now hates him. This is because he is being compelled to do something he doesn’t want to do. He has no revelation.   
60.      Brethren, watch what God is telling us. God is worshipped by revelation. Are you telling me that God has not touched you as an individual in a special way? I mean, in a special way, that you cannot deny it, you cannot attribute it to anything else. It is just God.
61.      Look back; see how the whole thing happened, once again, and again, and again. What can you say? Are you now saying that after all these manifestations, even God Himself going out of His way to come to you as an individual, even in your house, in the market, in the work place, God has touched us individually.
62.      He said that we are still lacking the revelation of He that is in our midst.
63.      Why is God still shouting, still talking, still warning us to be careful? Remember the prophecy went forth that a time will come when we will just gather, worship God happily, rejoice before God, praise God and then go home. This is the time. Have you got the revelation? Is it clear now?
64.      Let us look at this message, “What is God to You?” To you as an individual, to me as an individual, what is God to you? What is God to you? This message was preached in the year 2004, by the Son of Man. page 37 verse 34.
65.      “It is when you lose the revelation of He that is given you and the essence of His mission that you run into error. That is why the word is not effective in your life. Because you do not have the revelation of the personality that is speaking in the Bride.
66.      Is it a lie? See the Lord in the Lord. If because of the pride of life, you harden your heart against the truth, you must surely be destroyed.
67.      Brethren, what actually is our problem? All we have been hearing and are still hearing, I mean, we should fully understand, know for He has revealed, displayed, shown us everything.
68.       Your source of existence, your source of livelihood, your source of wealth, your security, your protection even your beauty is this God.
69.      That I, myself, am alive today is this God, that you are alive today is this God. Have you seen Him, understood Him, received Him as God Almighty, worshipping Him by that revelation?
70.      “Who Is God To You?” verse 34 of page 37, It is when you lose the revelation of He that is given you and the essence of His mission that you run into error.
71.      It is for our sake that a Savior is sent. If we are not lost, why sending a Savior?
72.      That is why the word is not effective in your life. Because you do not have the revelation of the personality that is speaking in the bride. That is why, many of you today behave as if you want to renew the Bible.
73.      Brethren, who is this personality that is speaking in the Bride? Doesn’t He have scriptural backing, scriptural commission? Don’t we know all of them? Isaiah 42, Isaiah 49, Hebrews, Acts of the Apostle and so on.
74.      Do we go back to them to introduce Him again? Is He like any of the so called men of God in the streets or in the world?
75.      Isaiah chapter 42, let us see something. And then what is His mission? Have you understood why He is here? Or have you not understood that you were lost?
76.      A brother asked me a question some time, that a brother was praying and said, “God, we were born in sin, and shaped in iniquity”.
77.      He said that the thing troubled him because he believed and still believes that as long as we are in the Faith of the Son of Man, no more, we are clean.
78.      I said yes, the brother that prayed the prayer asking God, admitting that we were shaped in iniquity, we were born in sin, do you not know that it is only this one seed, a seed that has made us right with God?
79.      We were all born in iniquity, knowing no God, given to dumb idols, following our forefathers who were idolaters. Even when we started going to church, we were following temple robbers.
80.      And many of us patterned after them, came into End Time Message, started fighting over tithe, because the scripture says that their god is their belly. Real jobless people.  Amen.

INSPIRED TO ASPIRE (1)
Yes, many came into End Time Message, started fighting over tithe because they do not know the truth about it. They do not know that they must protect the human dignity first which is hard work.
2.           Yes, you want to be an expert on what you are doing, what you need is 10 percent of inspiration and 90 percent of hard work. You are inspired to aspire. And you cannot aspire without an icon.
3.           You cannot aspire without having a great mind where your eyes will focus, whose steps you would like to follow. When you want to be great and you mingle with sycophants, you would be the greatest sycophant. And it produces generational poverty: Poverty is transferred from generation to generation.
4.           Nobody has ever discovered what made his predecessors poor. They exerted their energy on menial matters, menial things; cutting of palm fruits, harvesting crops, farm lands. Do not develop your house; you are the house. Develop yourself.
5.           How do you know when you are really developed? When you have come to the point when you can define who you are. Differentiate between who you are from what people think you are. You may not be what people think you are. For nobody knows you more than you.
6.           Nobody can talk about you accurately except you. Whatever you do not know about yourself does not exist.
7.           Define who you are. When you define who you are, you can now look at yourself at the mirror and know whether you are seeing somebody else or yourself.
8.           Are you what you think you are or are you still what you would like to be. If you stop at what you are seeing at the mirror, you would not move an inch. You will never move an inch.
9.           But stay at the mirror; begin to see what you would like to be. Otherwise, I can wear a “safari” suit, if I watch myself at the mirror, I would be satisfied. Nobody is God-made.
10.        You are nothing but what you have made yourself. God said that great man hardly comes from great families. Note it. Often times, good fruits do not come from best specie.
11.        You see best specie with bad fruit. Why? Because of self-discipline. When you define who you are right, you can define your objective right. And once you are wrong, you are wrong.
12.        That is why I believe that the first step a human being should take is to develop himself. That is why I say, DO NOT GIVE A FOOLISH MAN MONEY FOR ESTABLISHMENT, RATHER DEVELOP HIM SO THAT HE WILL RECOGNIZE CHALLENGES AHEAD OF HIM AND KNOW WHY HE IS EMBARKING ON WHATEVER HE WANTS TO EMBARK ON.
13.        When you develop yourself very well, there is no work that would be difficult for you to embark on.
14.        When the elders came to my house, I told them that when you are using a machete that is not sharp to cut down a tree, you are using your strength, not the machete. Thus, if you are given ten minutes to cut the tree, use nine minutes to sharpen the machete, then use one minute and cut it off. No energy is exercised.
15.        ENERGY IS NEEDED, DEVOTION, COMMITMENT, VISION, COURAGE, THESE THINGS ARE NEEDED.
16.        Focus is self-development. Most is self-denial. That is why we say that you must sacrifice many things. Often times, you sacrifice even your integrity to steal a technology. You must be ready for all these things.
17.        Thus, sharpen your knife using nine minutes, then cut down the tree in a minute. Develop yourself very well and get the skill that is needed for that which you want to do.
18.        Receive the training, which is the skill. Then embark on that thing, I tell you, there is no difficulty, no problem that will arise out of that thing which you can never surmount because you have received the skill.
19.        I threw a question to members of My family, all of them. I asked them a pertinent question which I have been asking.
20.        Hear Me very well. He that feeds an orphan and he that marries a wife for a jobless orphan, who showed that orphan the greatest favour?
21.        Wait! I am the examiner. He that feeds an orphan and he that marries a wife for a jobless orphan, who showed that orphan the greatest favour? If you are of the opinion that it is one that feeds the orphan, show by raising your hand.
22.        Raise it very well, let Me see it. Thank you, Hands down. If you are of the opinion that he should be given a wife, show by raising your hand. Thank you very much.
23.        If you know that you are not in support of any one, both marrying for him and feeding him, show by raising your hand. Let Me see your hands. You are of the opinion that he should not be fed or given a wife, show by raising your hand. You mean that he should be buried alive.
24.        In other words, you are saying that every poor man is a witch. Pay attention. Eyes have seen it that those in support that he should be given a wife are greater than those who said he should be fed very well. Thank you very much. I appreciate all of you.
25.        Now, I want only two people who are of the opinion that he should be furnished with food and not with a wife to raise up their hands. A Brother and a Sister.
26.        Sister Ogoochukwu, let us hear why you said that he should be given food and not wife. One reason.
27.        Answer: I am of the opinion that he should be given food because it is only the living that can talk about the future.
28.        A Brother answers: I said that he should be given food because when somebody eats food, he can be alive to decide on what to do in life. Thank you.
29.        If you are of the opinion that he should be given a wife, I want two people also. A Brother and a Sister. Stand up so that I will recognize you. Please be patient with Me, I am not crazy. I am dubbing a clear message.
30.        This is quantitative and qualitative reasoning. A man can never grow higher than his reasoning ability. Whatever height a man or a woman reaches in this life is determined by the extent of the person’s reasoning.
31.        Sister, let us know why you said that he should be given a wife and not food. One reason only.
32.        Answer: my reason for saying that he should be given a wife is because two heads are better than one.
33.        Bishop Nnachor, why are you of the opinion that the orphan should be given a wife and not food?
34.        Answer: I said that he should be given a wife because God created the man first and then created the woman as a helpmate to the man.
35.        Ok, thank you. Now, all who said that he should be given food bring down your hand, those who are saying that he should be given a wife; bring down your hands also. Trace it to anywhere; all of you are having reasons for your answer. Brother Ojiakor, tell us your own opinion.
36.        Answer: I am of the opinion that he should be given food.
37.        Attention, we are in a family. If you are talking while your teacher is talking, you are learning nothing. Every day is a learning process.
38.        When you stop learning, you become old, and when you become old, you would be discarded. Whenever anything has waxed old, it must surely be phased out.
39.        The reason why we are living in an impoverished age is because; this age is the age that politicizes education instead of concretizing it.
40.        Let it be known to you that wishes at times cannot be where it is. It is applicable to dreams. The same way I tell you, speculations can hardly be reality. Rumors appear to be stronger than realities.
41.        I am not painting any hypothetical picture of the Faith or this fellowship or the Bridal Faith. I am very, very happy.
42.        By this quantitative and qualitative reasoning, I have assessed the Bride. I have seen why we are what we are. And yet where we are now is higher than what I met in 1990. There is a remarkable improvement. Amen.

BE INSPIRED TO ASPIRE (2)
Let it be known to you that there can be alternatives to everything, but there has never been and there will never be any alternative to education.
2.           Once you are not well-educated, you must be well-deformed. I can see that there are some people that are following strictly the lectures we are delivering here in the name of sermon or teachings.
3.           Let me put it blank. One said in My house that, watch an orphan who does not have anything to boast of, no means of sustenance, that what you have to do is to marry a wife for him, then he will settle down and plan his life.
4.           I said, “Fine. Well said.” He that feeds an orphan and he that marries a wife for a jobless orphan, who showed him love?
5.           He who saw an orphan, who has nothing with him and you married a wife for him, has added injury to his wound. You have buried him alive. He will remain a beggar till eternity.
6.           Since he could not feed himself, he does not have anything doing, and you still added another burden to him, let it be known to you that you will feed him together with the wife you married for him. If he impregnates her, it will be the worst.
7.           Secondly, you have trapped him down, for he will not have time to go and learn anything again. Rather, he will only concentrate on things that can put food on his table. He will desire daily pay: Wait and take.
8.           Anyhow work, just for eating: “Wetin man go eat”. He can never think of changing his clothes, to build a house does not concern him. Remember that he can never eat a meaningful food, he will be eating food meant for beggars.
9.           What can you say about the children born in that family? Poverty has started from the parents and transferred to children and even grandchildren. When will the hardship end?
10.        It is only the living that can talk of what he will do tomorrow. Strength is used to fan embers fire. A horse runs better uphill when it is well fed. A hungry man is an angry man. A hungry man does not sleep.
11.        Do you know that a hungry man does not have any brother? A hungry man is a thief in the making. He inclines to bewitching. He is full of envy, because hunger breeds envy.
12.        Hear Me very well. The highest love you can show to an orphan who has nothing is to give him food, so that he can eat and live. When you eat, you can now pay attention. It is then you tell him to go and look for what he would do because nobody eats very well and still desires to beg. Rather, he would join his mates.  
13.        He can then desire to feed another person. The only way you can feed an orphan is to train him. For his wife cannot remove that skill from him.
14.        Hence, he can decide to go anywhere in this world just to make sure he meets up with his mates. Whenever the time for marriage comes, he will marry, the time for having family comes, he will marry. He knows the number of children he will give birth to for he knows that nobody is training them for him.
15.        The day you marry a wife for an orphan is the day you buried him alive. It is the day you transferred poverty from his generation to his children’s generation; and even his generation yet to come.
16.        Have you seen why poor brethren in our midst are greater in number? It is because we have been failing to develop ourselves above the primitive level. We have not been developing ourselves in line with the demands of our day.
17.        In the days of our fathers, they believed in early marriage even when the person had no occupation. More so, if the person is a rascal, the mother will volunteer her money to marry a wife for him so that the head of the son will cool down; but yet it does not cool down, because hostility that accompanies poverty, frustration that accompanies poverty will make the man to be a victim of xenophobia. A victim of all sorts of criminality.
18.        Hence, they are running to South Africa, running to Dubai, Germany, walk on foot through Mediterranean Sea. From Casablanca to Spain, from Rabat to Spain.
19.        When you hear that people sank in the Ocean, migrants from a nation that has no war, migrating to other nations illegally. Watching all of them, they fall within this category of never-do-wells.
20.        Because they impose on themselves and also allow their parents to impose on them a burden instead of giving them a skill. The burden of the society bothers on these categories of people. The burden of every family centers around these insurgent groups.
21.        Expect insurgence in your family if you are habouring such people who desire marriage when they are empty handed. No skill, no training, no education, who are the people supporting and sponsoring them? Their likes of parents, their likes of brothers and sisters.
22.        Permit Me to use one example. When Brother Shed was shouting over the condition of his family, little did he know that what is giving the wife headache was how to save money and marry for the younger brother who is not doing anything.
23.        Simply because his brother said that until he married, that there was nothing he would do that would prosper. He is doing absolutely nothing. He is depending on the mother, the sister, the brother. When he noticed that nobody wanted to listen to him, he became violent.
24.        Because he is frustrated, he ran to Nsukka and started troubling the old mother. What he needs is training and not wife. If you marry for him, you are marrying for the old mother.
25.        This is why we discourage our children from mingling, associating, having anything in common with such nonentities who refused every inspiration that will help them to aspire.
26.        Be inspired to aspire. Who is the source of your inspiration? Number one is the Holy Word of God.
27.        Number two is great achievers who rose from grass to greatness, who became something out of nothing.
28.        How many know that Bill Clinton of America was an adopted child who never knew the parents? He became the governor of Florida. From there, he became the president of America. Who knows that Obama was an orphan in America? That Obama never knew up till today who his father is?
29.        He was brought up by the mother, he took up the challenge, working and reading; had first class in Law in Harvard University, recruited as a junior lecturer. He proceeded until he got his Doctorate Degree and became the first black man to be a member of the American senate.
30.        From American senate, he is now the President of America, without the help of his parents. Nobody assisted him.
31.        When you talk about Zik of Africa, his case is a different thing because his father at least, having served in the West African Frontier Force.
32.        But generally, upon his greatness, can you name a great man that came from his family?
33.        Who succeeded Awolowo? Since Awolowo gave way, has there been any Awolowo we can quote? What of Felix Oketie Ekpo? What of Akintola? What of Tafawa Balewa? Aminu Kano? Margaret Ekpo?
34.         I mean great men hardly come from great families. If we have numbered somebody that would have been number one in the East, I mean, late Owelle of Onitsha, Chukwuma Azikiwe, would have been that fellow.
35.        I mean, who transcended from the pedigree of Great Minds, Great Zik of Africa. But he died a drunkard, he died a pauper. He lived in his father’s house until he died, yet he attended the best university in the world, was occupying a celebrated office in Shell BP. You see that his academic excellence does not mean resounding success.
36.        Because you are a Ph.D. (Doctorate Degree) Holder, highly placed in your office; you can be a General Manager of a Bank and yet a pauper; occupying the best position in an organization, paid the best salary and be a poor man. Why? Your reasoning faculty is poor.
37.        A senseless fellow is a poor fellow. This is why I emphasize on human capital development, so that you can recognize your challenges and then begin to define who you are, what you are, where you are coming from and where you want to arrive. When you arrive there, you will know.  
38.        They teach people how to beg and not how to work. Denominations will teach you how to be a professional beggar. But in this most holy Faith, we raise you as a professional in your own area of operation. We motivate you to the next height.
39.        If people have been there, somebody must be there. Who must be there? Somebody who has discovered the secret of getting there; which is 10 percent inspiration, 90 percent hard work.
40.        (Apostle Luke Ojiakor speaks: Remember the family altar message at Nsugbe, where God was talking about getting into your destiny. He said, it is for you to walk and get into your destiny).
41.        You must walk into your destiny. For your destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice.
42.        You must walk into your destiny and then stop blaming anybody. If you must blame, blame yourself.  Amen.





ASPIRE TO BE A GREAT ACHIEVER
By
APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA
“THE SON OF MAN”

ASPIRE TO BE A GREAT ACHIEVER
Brother Ojiakor, we are having another message here. I am not trying to ridicule anybody, but I am talking to My people.
2.           The bane of My own people at Mbaise in my own family, in My own kindred at village is the bane of every other family. Unless you recognize it and fight it.
3.           Early marriage leads to early poverty. And this is the bane of My own community in Imo State man to impregnate a woman when he is not employed, he has no craft, no occupation, nothing, nothing.
4.           The parents will support their son to stay with that lady: “With time, he will pay. When the children will come up, he will pay the bride price”. Na lie.
5.           When he could not pay when he was a single man feeding himself alone; will he now begin to pay when the enormous family demands will be weighing on him, then he will save money to pay. What is the resultant effect?
6.           Number one, he will take delight in living in a thatched house. A thatched house will be like a zinc house to him. He would delight himself in living in a thatched house.
7.           Watch such people even in the township, they do not live in the town, they live in a suburb where they will live free of charge.
8.           They will even accept to be caretaker, cleaning the compound, becoming gardener, watchman, everything, so that he will live free. Watch such people; they take delight in riding bicycles, not motorcycle, bicycle!
9.           I do not think that bicycles would be eradicated in Mbaise in the next generation. Yes, once you are uneducated, you have no skill; definitely, your blood must provide the needed energy.
10.        Anybody riding bicycle furiously is exerting themselves, both man and woman. And they would like to teach their children, infants the act of riding bicycle, using blood to make fuel. Why? They did not sharpen their knives; great energy is exerted to eke out a living.
11.        You work more and earn less. But when you sharpen your knife, no energy is exerted to earn a living. You work less, you earn more.
12.        When you are educated, let me give you one instant example. I will use one who is in our midst. Our Brother Victor Nnachor, he is now a staff of First Bank.
13.        His salary for four months covers the whole expenses that were made on him for five years in the university, youth service and the unemployed period. His salary for four months covers more than that.
14.        In other words, the journey, the race Brother Sam has been running for over fifteen years; hear Me, Brother Victor will use one year to overtake him.
15.        Brother Sam will labour from morning till night, no public holiday, no leave, no transfer, no resting period, no time. But Victor will work for specified hours and earn more. What is the difference? He discovered the value of self-development. While this man enlisted in doggerman’s agency.”
16.        Let Me tell you, marriage is no achievement. The cheapest thing money can provide is a wife. With five thousand naira, you are married, but you cannot use five thousand naira to buy a car. Even to buy doggerman’s vehicle, using blood as fuel.
17.        I am saying, we are no longer living in the age of doggerman’s agency, “doggerman’s work. This is scientific age where we are informed of reducing stress, hard labour. It is through skill acquisition, it is through training, it is through education which has no alternative.
18.        If you know the alternative to education, tell Me. Absolutely, it does not exist. So, young, young boys and girls here, begin to cherish education above your necessary food. Begin to be inspired so as to aspire. I want to see somebody who will touch the sky at a tender age if we tarry.
19.        Thus, say no to early marriage without any occupation or skill. Even if it is imposed on you by your parents, say no. and the worst thing that will happen to a man is to allow parents or relations to marry a wife for him, a sure sign that the man is a failure. That man is a failure.
20.        Early marriage leads to early poverty, and the outcome is transferring of poverty from one generation to another. It will only stop if a strange being appears on the scene with a strange vision and say enough is enough.
21.        Enough is enough. He will restructure, re-organize, re-orientate, revolutionalize everything and then create a new and enviable way for those that are coming behind to improve upon.
22.        But unfortunately, sycophants do not copy good examples. The easiest example to copy has always been a wrong example. The easiest influence that put people offline has always been a wrong influence. Only few subscribe to good influence. Only few.
23.        That is why 90 percent of our wealth is controlled by 10 percent of the population, while 90 percent of the population contend for 10 percent.
24.        What is it producing? A wide disparity between the rich and the poor. Who made them poor? They made themselves. Lack of vision, lack of focus.
25.        It is My wish that you prosper both physically and spiritually. Glory be to God in the highest. That is why I do not like any man with very shallow ambition. I hate such a fellow.
26.        There are some brethren that came to Me with their building plans to approve for them, I considered now, considered the future, considered the family setup, considered prospects.
27.        You know, a successful man is always optimistic. A successful man is always optimistic.
28.        Number one man today is General Muhammadu Buhari. He remained undaunted for three successful tenures. Today, he is there.
29.        It is easier to quote Abraham Lincoln of America. Quote General Muhammadu Buhari, for he contested the first under the democratic era, he failed. He never gave up. The second, he failed, he never gave up. The Third time, he failed, he never gave up. The fourth attempt, he won.
30.        Yes, Great Achievers do not give up, for you cannot succeed, you cannot be great without failures. Failure means that you have not mastered the techniques, you are still a learner, you are an apprentice.
31.        Today, watch what happened. Nigeria as a whole voted massively for him. Even those in opposition voted for him, for he mastered the art of going to that Aso Rock.
32.        A great man is a man of vision, a man of great optimism. Even in the face of odds, he is focused. I am talking to Myself, I am talking to all of you. of course, you know My record. I never came out in a great family.
33.        Many of you here have better family background more than the Son of Man. Better placed; better upbringing than the Son of Man. My ways have been rough from childhood till today. But I remained undaunted.
34.        No situation has ever moved Me. I have maintained rigid possession of My drive, fixing My eyes on My track every minute of the day, believing I must arrive at the picture I painted for Myself from My childhood.
35.        Glory be to God in the highest. Let us hear the message not throwing away this one. Let us hear the fullness of the message, not discarding this one. Remember, He that preached the one you are hearing is the one talking. And this one is fresh manna.
36.        This is the essence of travelling long distance to worship at His feet, for you can never go home the same. You will recognize your fault.  For nothing helps you more than the mistake of the past.
37.        If you can recognize and correct them, tomorrow is going to be brighter. Where you are is not enough. Consolidate your gains. Thank you very much. To God be the glory. Amen.

REPOSITION YOURSELF
By
BY APOSTLE LUKE OJIAKOR

REPOSITION YOURSELF
A round of applause to Almighty God! This is another motivational piece. Look, our problem has been that we have not recognized and do not have the revelation of He that is speaking in the Bride.
2.           And the mission for which He is here. You have seen the drama, you have seen the exercise we have carried out now and God has assessed us, scored us. Now you know where you fall into. You know your position.
3.           Reposition yourself immediately. That is the essence of God giving us all these teachings. You see, where have you heard it like this? Where have you seen it like this? Is it in the denominations? They are spoilers.
4.           Where we read, it gave us two things: the revelation of the personality who is He. And the revelation of His mission for which He is here.
5.           Isaiah 42 verse 1-7. Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.  He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
6.           He shall not cause his voice to be heard on the streets.

38.        A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.  He shall not fail nor be discouraged,…
39.        He shall not fail nor be discouraged. I remember God said, “You will hear so many accusations, everything leveled against Me. Do not ever defend Me.
40.        Son of Man speaks: Not ordinary, but disturbing accusations. Do not ever attempt defending Me. It is the mark of My calling.
41.        Any leader that is afraid of criticism is bound to fail. Any leader that settles down to defend his accusations and counter accusation has already failed, because a leader can avoid everything but not accusations, suspicion, criticisms, for it makes him strong.
42.        All these years Buhari fizzled out of the history of Nigeria, but today, every headline of all newspapers is carrying Muhammadu Buhari.
43.        Nobody knew about President Goodluck Jonathan when he was a lecturer in the university, but coming to limelight, newspapers publicized his manifestoes.
44.        Whether you like it or not, crime publicized Osama Bin Laden. But that is not greatness. No man has ever been called great for indulging in criminality. For righteousness exalts a man, wickedness causes reproach. There is nobody who will draw his example from such criminals, no!   
45.        Verse 4. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he has set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. 
46.        Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles, KJV.
47.        I, the Lord, have called thee in righteousness and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee and give thee for a covenant of the people for a light of the Gentiles.
48.        Living bible. See my servant, whom I uphold; my Chosen One in whom I delight. I have put my Spirit upon him; he will reveal justice to the nations of the world.
49.        He will be gentle—he will not shout nor quarrel in the streets. He will not break the bruised reed, nor quench the dimly burning flame.
50.        He will encourage the fainthearted, those tempted to despair. He will see full justice given to all who have been wronged. He won’t be satisfied until truth and righteousness prevail throughout the earth,..
51.         He will not be satisfied until what? Truth and righteousness prevail throughout the earth.
52.        And look at the website now. Who is this scripture talking about? I am saying, the personality that is speaking in the Bride. Have you understood it? Please, let us try and understand these things.
53.        …nor until even distant lands beyond the seas have put their trust in him. 
54.        The Lord God who created the heavens and stretched them out, who created the earth and everything in it, who gives life and breath and spirit to everyone in all the world, he is the one who says to his Servant, the Messiah: “I the Lord have called you to demonstrate my righteousness.
55.        I will guard and support you, for I have given you to my people as the personal confirmation of my covenant with them. You shall also be a light to guide the nations unto me.
56.        King James Version says. I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles.
57.        The Covenant God. If you are in this covenant,… When Bishop Moses snapped the Son of Man, this is what appeared and He said, what about the entire congregation?
58.        That the Elohim swallowed all of us. He swallowed all of us as a covenant to the people. He is here as the covenant God and it is in Him that you and I have appeared.
59.        Psalms 80 verse 17. “Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself. So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name. KJV.
60.        Let thy hand be upon the man at thy right hand, upon the Son of Man whom thou madest strong for thyself.
61.        What is more, we read it in Isaiah verse 6 of chapter 42. It says, “I will keep thee for a covenant to the people and let thy hand be upon the man at thy right hand even the Son of Man whom thou hast made strong that we will not perish, we will not go back.
62.         If not this seed, let me tell you, I have told you, that no brother or sister here should boast on what he or she can do, for we are not better than those people that are there who tasted this Faith and left. You know the scripture is fulfilling every day.
63.        It said, that it is better for somebody not to have tasted the Lord, than for somebody to have stayed under the cloud, tasted the good word of His grace and even testified that the Lord is good, then turns round to call this same thing evil.
64.        The Son of Man speaks: Immediately, evil will follow that person. The Lord will dispossess the fellow of everything and automatically, that person must be a laughing stock to people around him.
65.        His heart will be filled with sorrows and regrets while he lives.
66.        It is God actually keeping us. Now, what is His mission? He said, we must understand the personality, understand the mission of the Son of Man.
67.        He continued saying, “My mission, My mission.” What is actually His mission? It is to call you and Myself back to Himself, to glory.  
68.        Hebrews chapter 9 verse 28. So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. KJV.
69.        Living bible.  So also Christ died only once as an offering for the sins of many people; and he will come again, but not to deal again with our sins. This time he will come bringing salvation to all those who are eagerly and patiently waiting for him. LB.
70.        Brethren, the first place we read in the “No deception is of the truth,” it said that I have come to realize that everybody that is here is here for salvation.
71.        And He said that He is coming not to deal with sin or to die on the cross but this time, he is coming to bring salvation to as many as are eagerly and patiently waiting for Him.
72.        If you are here for salvation, your attitude must be different from the attitude of somebody that is here for mere coming to church. For you are not the author of that salvation, you do not know the way to salvation. He that has salvation in His hand, whatever He tells you to do, what do you do?
73.        You do it! Because you are here for salvation. You do it, knowing the personality that is speaking. Just imagine now. How He has elevated us again.
74.        Unless somebody who is blind. Even if you have been trying and yet it seems nothing is moving for you. There is something I believe.
75.        If people are saying that something is a big problem, I do not believe that it is a big problem. I believe it is a responsibility. It is a big responsibility, let us face it. It is meant for us. And you tackle it.
76.        I am saying, even if you think that your condition is the worst and God has now spoken, once there is life, you will be able to plan. You will be able to get focused. Target something.
77.        Have a vision, and he is here even to guide. Ask questions, He will tell us what to do. And when you go ahead, definitely, you must see the ray of light at the end of the tunnel. Amen.




WHAT IS GOD TO YOU?
6
WHAT IS GOD TO YOU?
What is God to you?” Page 60 verse 43 through 53. Anybody worshipping a universal God is devil himself.  The God I serve is not a universal God.
2.           He is a peculiar God to a peculiar people. He is a God to one nation and not a God to all the nations.
3.           The God I serve is not a God to all the nations and not the God of the world. He is a God for a nation, a God to a particular people, a peculiar people. For He is a peculiar God. You can serve whatever you want to serve.
4.           The word of your day is not effective in you, in your life because from the beginning you are not of God. Many can come to Me calling Me all kinds of names, all to prove to Me that they belong to Me, but I know that they are liars. They have no part in Me, for their characters marked them off.
5.           In Jesus day, He asked, “Why is it that they cannot hear thy word? It is because, they are not of Me. For he that is of God heareth the word of God.”
6.           You cannot say that you are of God and when God speaks, you do not hear, you do not understand, you do not believe, and you behave the way you want to behave.
7.           I believe if we are soldiers, we are under a commandant. We must receive command from Him, and he is to instruct us on the way we should go, the way we should do everything.
8.           We must live a regulated life. If you are a soldier under a command and you are not obeying the command of that commandant, automatically, you are calling for your death; straight away, he will order one of his boys to gun you down so that you will not be a disgrace.
9.           How many people in this most holy Faith are being controlled by the words of the Apostle today, by the words of the Son of Man today?
10.        How many really believe that we have a dedicated Apostle, that this is God En-Morphe? You must believe that.
11.        If you do not believe that, you cannot believe in other Apostles. You must believe that we have a vindicated Apostle.
12.        If you do not believe that, you cannot believe in other Apostles. When you believe the Apostle of your day, to believe in the Apostles become easy.
13.        If you do not believe the Apostle, you cannot believe the Apostles. We have the Apostle, and we have Apostles.
14.        In Jesus day, He said that He was the Apostle and the high priest. Yet it behoves on Him to appoint Apostles to Himself. How many in this Faith are being controlled and led by the word of the Apostle?
15.        Why are you having difficulties? Why are you saddled about the troubles? It is because you have lost your experience. The fear of God is no longer in your heart.
16.        Can you imagine Apostle Silas, an Apostle wearing rags? If not for one thing, I would have dealt with him treacherously in My house. But I do not punish one that comes to Me.
17.        If I had come to him, I would have given him a sign in his life. I told you that you have the right to behave the way you want to, but do not associate it with this faith.
18.        When you know you are working contrary to the message, do not ever tell people that you belong to this fellowship. If you know your life is not worthy of the gospel, you are a reproach to the gospel, do not ever make the mistake of telling people that you are a member of the family of God. Sure!
19.        Even the prophet William Branham said so in the message titled, “Is your life worthy of the gospel of Christ?” He said that why people incur the wrath of God is because they cause reproaches.
20.        Thus he said, do not make the mistake of telling people that you are a child of God when your life does not agree with the message of God for your day.”
21.        If when God speaks and you are disobedient, what makes you a child of God? Where lies your claim? To many in this most holy Faith, God is God when they run into difficulties.
22.        For now, God has become a very nice spare parts, spare tyre. He is now a spare tyre that can only be remembered when there is trouble. But when everything is going fine, to hell with God.
23.        When was this message preached? It was preached in 2004. If you know that He that holds the entire universe is the one whose voice you are hearing; brethren, I do not know why.
24.        At times, I ask myself this question, “What actually has gone wrong with many of us? If we understand Him, why the wrong behavior among us?”
25.        Why is it that the word of the Son of Man still sounds light in our ears?
26.        The Son of Man speaks: Over-familiarity. The greatest destroyer in the Bridal Faith and in every faith of Christ revealed in every dispensation. Starting from the days of old. Over-familiarity caused them to rebel against Noah, Lot, and Abraham. Moses’ own was the worst. All the prophets suffered it. The Apostles suffered it. Jesus the Christ suffered it.
27.         Human beings have never changed. But why must we fail in our own day having the knowledge of all these generations documented in our day as a lesson that what happened to them should not happen to us? I mean, you should know better.
28.         In the message, “The foolishness of God”, God asked a question there. “What blinded the Jews? Over-familiarity.”
29.        He said, “Can we the Gentiles succeed where they failed?” I remember also the scripture which said that a prophet is not recognized in his own country and among his own people.
30.        And God said that it is not for the elect. The elect should recognize their saviour, their Messiah. It is for unbelievers outside.
31.        The Son of Man speaks:  Any child that does not know his father, is he a real son? Any child who does not know the father is one who the mother took away from the father.
32.        Look at where we read. It said that God is not God to all but God to a peculiar people. That we are not worshipping a universal god. Because He is a peculiar God. Pay attention brethren. A peculiar God to a peculiar people. Is He not the same God on the side of Abraham?
33.        Is He that same God? It is the same God. Why is He peculiar? And why are the people worshipping Him peculiar?
34.         Remember God told us that Abraham was a Gentile, for you must be a Gentile before you become a Jew. Have you forgotten?
35.        Abraham came from Mesopotamia. His parents were idolaters, and Almighty God called him. He (Almighty God) did not tell him where he was leading him to.
36.        He said, “To a place He will show him. Abraham obeyed, kept on moving until he told him where to settle, and he then settled.
37.        And then showed him the land and told him, He will give him all. Let him continue believing. I am saying that Abraham was separated from his kindred, from his family.
38.        God decided to call him and the wife to Himself so that nobody in his family will be a disturbance or a stumbling block to Abraham, seeing that Abraham carried out every instruction from the Almighty.
39.        He called Abraham away from his family to be out completely where then He decided to bless Abraham. Read your scripture. Genesis chapter 15.
40.        Imagine God, if you can count all the stars of heaven, so shall I make your seed on earth. Did Abraham have any discussion with God before he was called?
41.        Did Abraham appeal to God first before God called Abraham? Did Abraham know what God had in stock for him? Abraham was fully depending on God.
42.        The Son of Man speaks: Don’t you know he was an idolater with his parents before God came his way? For he had another spirit.
43.        God saw the spirit in him and called him away, decided to lavish His blessings on Abraham. I am saying that we are the children of Abraham. For we are in that seed and that seed is here.
44.        In Him we are blessed with the blessings of Abraham. If we understand this, why is it that we still feel as if we are on our own? You are a slave of Christ, for He has purchased you with His own life. Is it not true?
45.        Now, why should you begin to dictate what you will do, ignoring the instruction given to us by our Master, our Owner and our Father? What area has this God not spoken to us on as a loving father?
46.        Is it in our families? Is it in our work places? Why are we finding it difficult to allow Him have rule over us?
47.        We are a peculiar people serving a peculiar God, worshipping a peculiar God. Bear that in mind. And He called us for a purpose.
48.         “Fear God” volume one, page 44 from verse 54. “It is not brother Odoemena, it is the very Elohim paving the way.
49.        This message was preached on 7th December, 2014. Today is 7th June, 2015. Exactly six months today. 7th December, 2014 to 7th June, 2015. Page 44 of “Fear God”.
50.         It is not brother Odoemena, it is the very Elohim paving the way. After all, we are coming from one side. People that left at the beginning, left because of their blindness.
51.        The Son of Man speaks: They are regretting. They now want to come back but no way. They used the words of their mouth to seal their doom.
52.        People that left at the beginning, left because of their blindness. Because they did not know that Brother Odoemena was not the one, they could not see the Elohim paving the way for us. They know it was the third exodus and God was on the lead but all of them wanted to see the cloud. They did not know that it took Moses alone to see the cloud.
53.        The Son of Man speaks: If you believe it, say “Amen”. The cloud was before Moses. He was the one seeing it and the people were seeing Moses.
54.        They did not know that it took Moses alone to see the cloud. It took Moses alone to hear from God and tell the people. That God can only speak to the people through the mouth of Moses whom He had appointed God over them, with Aaron as their prophet.
55.        I will declare. Will you declare? Yes, I will. Will they believe? Yes, they will. How? I say this thing because I have taught them.” How many were there that day?
56.        They know it was the third exodus and God was on the lead but all of them wanted to see the cloud. They did not know that it took Moses alone to see the cloud. It took Moses alone to hear from God and tell the people. That God can only speak to the people through the mouth of Moses whom He had appointed God over them, with Aaron as their prophet.
57.        But everybody wanted to be a prophet, they wanted to be Moses, they wanted to see the cloud, they wanted to see everything. How many gods would be operating in that camp?
58.        Not minding, some people were privileged to see the Ancient of Days coming out of a human being, proceeded in front and went back to the human being.
59.        The Son of Man speaks: But today, you have seen the reality that came out with the head white dressed, everything and proceeded front, went back to the same vessel.
60.        People that do not have the eyes of vision, can you see Him? Confirmed! Go ahead. If it is magic, many magicians are still existing.
61.        Verse 28. They began to see too many things that surprised them, from there, Faith started coming up. Yet, rebellion remained in the hearts of men. Do not forget this fact, that our fathers were coming out of Egypt, being guided by the pillar of cloud. The cloud is God’s vindication in all the ages which the devil has never impersonated and can never, never impersonate.
62.        The Son of Man speaks: They can never impersonate. Bishop Ebenezer, abi na lie? Brother Okoh, abi na lie? Take note brethren.
63.        Of all the signs, miracles, wonders Jesus Christ warned the wards, His followers to be worried of, according to Mathew Gospel chapter 24, the pillar of cloud was not there.
64.         Of all Jesus the Christ warned His disciples saying, they will come with this, display this.
65.        They can even raise the dead, heal the sick, turn water into blood, the pillar of cloud was not mentioned. The thick darkness was not mentioned, the rainbow was not mentioned, the bright cloud was not there, for nobody can impersonate them.
66.         Then why are we still doubting? Then why are we still seeing brother? I mean, it was last Sunday here that: “In Him was the Father Revealed”, was revisited.
67.        Along the line when the message was going on, I remember that time, if anybody would say something, he would say: “Holy Ghost said, Holy Ghost said. But today, it is “Kelechi said.” “Brother said”. (Almighty said that they do not add brother again.”
68.        “Kelechi said.” “Ojiakor said.” So brethren, remember the message I am reading. It said; “Fear God”. Let none of these things we are beholding turn round to condemn any of us, please.
69.        Verse 30. For the devil has never impersonated the pillar of cloud, the pillar of light, the rainbow by day and by night. They are not the attributes of the devil. The thick darkness is not the attribute of the devil, for God Himself dwelleth in the thick darkness.
70.        For we must never forget dear brothers, what happened to our people in the wilderness long, long time ago. God guided them by sending a cloud that moved along ahead of them and He brought them all safely through the waters of the red sea.
71.        This might be called your baptism. Baptized both in sea and in cloud as followers of Moses, their commitment to him as their leader.
72.        Their commitment to Moses as their leader.
73.        They were following Moses while Moses was following the cloud. They were committed to Moses’ leadership.
74.        Why should the people of Moses condemn us? God forbid! He said, can we succeed where they failed? They followed Moses while Moses was following the cloud.
75.        Whatever Moses told them, they did. All that rebelled, met death. If we go to 1st Corinthians chapter 10, they are all compiled, and they are a warning to us that we should not lust after evil things.
76.        We should be committed to the leadership of the Elohim in our midst. He is the One leading us.
77.        Do not see “Brother.” Brethren, see “Almighty God.” For that is the personality, by personal revelation, it is very, very clear to you.
78.        Verse 36. Go back to the message titled, “Commitment”. How many are committed to the leadership of the Bridal Faith by the Son of Man?
79.         If you are committed, tell Me why and how you feel you are committed to this ministry.
80.        What is the level of your commitment to this Faith that is protecting you, protecting your family, protecting your future? What is your commitment?
81.        Remember the first message I read when I came up here, from No Deception is of the Truth: Seeing that we all have come here for eternal life and eternal life alone, let us rally round and defend this Faith.
82.        What is your level of commitment? There is something there. If you are committed to something, definitely, you must protect that thing.
83.        You must do everything possible to make sure that nothing happen to that thing. You can never play with it.
84.         Instead of being committed to the course of the faith, many are exploiting the faith. The same way they were exploiting Moses in the wilderness, demanding things Moses could not provide.
85.        In short, they became burdensome to Moses more than the burden of leadership. They imposed burden on Moses. Instead of helping to relieve Moses burdens, they were adding burden on Moses on a daily basis, feeling disgruntled.
86.        Moses was bringing them out of the land of slavery and was taking them to the land of rest.
87.        If you go back to that message, “Family Menu—the Good Shepard”, remember, what is the duty of the flock to the Shepherd? You should do everything to alleviate the level of burden, level of work of the shepherd, by being obedient, making His work easy.
88.        When an instruction goes forth, everybody, every hand will be on deck to make sure that, that instruction is carried out. And he will be very, very happy.
89.        Let us cast our minds back and bring up everything before God. Remember, He is bringing us into the land of rest.
90.         Verse 29. In other words, they were not tired of staying in slavery. Hence, many of them coveted worldly things, for that they went back to Egypt.
91.         Some made captains for themselves who will lead them back to Egypt because of garbage, onions, cucumber and water melon, banana as well as apple, that they will now go back to Egypt.
92.        The Son of Man speaks: Brethren, Is there anything good that is in cucumber and garlic and even white onion?
93.        Let us look at this message, “Warnings from God before judgment” page 37 verse 19 through 23.
94.        “Hear the word of the Lord. He is the same yesterday, today and forever and up till this moment, he is still sending Apostles and Prophets, for the church of God is built upon the foundation of the a Prophets and Apostles.
95.        By the Prophets, He brought them out of the land of captivity, by the words of the Apostles, He established them.
96.        The Son of Man speaks: This is the much we would take for this Sunday school. Remain blessed everybody as we invite Brother Ben Okezue to the pulpit to complement this message.    Amen.
