shall never go thirsty again, but have everlasting life. Believe it if you can... — The Son of Man.

STRIFE NOT AGAINST YOUR MAKER
This is another day the Lord has made. This is another day He has added unto our lives, and we know that as the day passes by, He is bringing us nearer to Himself.
2.          He has bid us to come and then, we have obeyed. And we know that He is not going to drive us away. Let us be very very careful for our God is a Consuming Fire.
3.          There is no way you can strife against your Maker. I say, there is no way you can strife against your Maker. He has shown Himself to us, before He started speaking to us, He identified Himself. He introduced Himself so that you know where the source is coming from.
4.           That there is no way you will shake your head. Please, don’t shake your head. Strife not against your Maker for He knows everything. That is why He introduced Himself first before speaking to us. No matter how it is biting, swallow it. It will be good unto you.
5.          It will be good unto you for when you swallow everything that comes out from Him, it will do you good.
6.          But at the initial time like this, it will be very rough. It will be very hard but I am appealing to you, swallow everything if you want to make it.
7.          I want ever one of us to make it so, let us continue to swallow His word no matter how it is biting you, we cannot do anything against the truth but identify with the truth.
8.          The truth is there. We have seen the truth, seeing it manifesting. What else do we want again? Do not strife against your Maker. Today is a great day.
9.          The book of First John Chapter 5 from eleven to fifteen, “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life: and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
10.      These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
11.      And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
12.      And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” (KJV).
13.      And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
14.      So whoever has God's Son has life; whoever does not have his Son does not have life.
15.      I write this to you who believe in the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life. And we can be confident that he will listen to us whenever we ask him for anything in line with his will.
16.      And if we know he is listening when we make our requests, we can be sure that he will give us what we ask for.” LB.
17.      And this is that testimony (that evidence): God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
18.      He who possesses the Son has that life; he who does not possess the Son of God does not have that life.
19.      I write this to you who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) the name of the Son of God [in the peculiar services and blessings conferred by Him on men], so that you may know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that you [already] have life, yes, eternal life.
20.      And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us.
21.      And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him.” AMP.
22.      The Word of God is blessed. This place that we read, it says, that this is the record, that God has given us Eternal Life, and that this Eternal Life is in His Son.
23.      This life He has given us is in His Son. No wonder the introduction. I say, No wonder the introduction. HE has introduced unto you and unto me. God has been speaking unto us so that we will listen and obey. That was the introduction that went forth so that we will not say, “I don’t know who is speaking. Who is this man?”
24.      First of all He introduced Himself and then allowed you to see He that is speaking unto you. And then why do you strife against your Maker? I saw people shaking their head yesterday.
25.      Brethren, it should not be like that. If He had not introduced Himself, you will have an excuse but now, you have no excuse. Just continue to pray to God that He will give you the grace to obey all that He has been speaking unto us.
26.      He does not want any of us to perish. He wants His sons and daughters to manifest. That was why it was hard like that. It is very difficult to save man because he was developing a stiff neck. If it is not like that, He gets a bulalah; we are not going to repent. We are not going to obey him, so keep on expecting it. It makes me good. It makes everyone good because we are not going to be pampered again after all our eyes have seen. That which we have touched, our eyes have seen, ate with Him, always with Him, why can’t we believe?
27.      I am still going further, and this is the record that God has given to us Eternal Life, and this life is in His Son.
28.      He that has His Son has life, and he that has not the Son of God has no life. You see why the introduction. You see where the life comes from. You see the person that is giving the life, and the life is nothing but His WORD.
29.      The life is nothing but His WORD, it makes us good, swallow it, swallow it.  It will be good unto you. But initially, like this, it will be very hard. Yes, it is like that.
30.      I am still going further, he said, “This thing have I written to you that believe on the Name of the Son of God. That ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the Name of the Son of God. And this is the confidence that we have in him.”
31.      I am very much confident that we have him. That the son of God, that the SON OF MAN has manifested in our midst, so that we will understand what God is, who God is.
32.      Stop strifing against your Maker. When that message came first, we saw the whole thing it was quite plain. It was quite plain. God told His people stop strifing against your Maker. So that you will stop strifing against His WORD made manifest in our day. That is our confidence.
33.       And if we know that He hears us, whatever we are, we know that we have a petition desired of us. Why? Because the WORD has been made manifest in our day. God is speaking to everyone of us even this moment to stop strifing against him.
34.      “Stop strifing against me for I have introduced myself. You know who is speaking to you, I have introduced myself. Do not strife against your Maker.
35.      Let me tell you, shaking your head cannot save you. It can never save you, rather take that WORD, swallow it. That is the only thing that will save you, that is the only thing that is going to save me.
36.      For there is a great gain. Let us be prepared, that is what the spirit is saying now. As we go about our business, let us be prepared for He is going to speak to us.
37.      Let us read verse twenty of the same chapter, ‘and we know that the son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son, Jesus Christ. KJV.
38.      We know that the Son of God is come and has given us an understanding that we may know Him that is true. Why the introduction? For you to understand that He is the true God.  
39.      For you to understand, for me to understand so that we will obey all that proceeded out of His mouth.
40.      Why are you strifing against your Maker? Brethren, it should not be so. Let us be very careful so that we will not be condemned. And we know that the Son of God is come, and that He has given us understanding, that we may know Him that is true even in His Son. This is the true God and Eternal Life.
41.      We are privileged people, we are privileged people. God is among us, God is among us walking on two feet. We see him every day. shake hands with Him. Oh! That is why He is hundred percent God. That is why we were told that if He put on that thing that makes Him God, nobody will approach Him.  
42.      Just watch a little. The little you will see, all of us will run away. All The little He will speak, all of us will run away. All of us will run away. He will recoil, and bring the other side so that we can approach Him.
43.      If not, you cannot approach him. Let us be very careful. I want you to understand what God is doing unto us even in this day. The manifestation of His Son has made us good because we are waiting; look at the hour He manifests when the whole world has gone astray.
44.      Nobody is obeying God. Nobody knows what God is all about. It was then that He manifested, that He manifested, and this day, doing a work in you. Doing a work in me. He is doing a work in me.
45.      What is His purpose? To present to Himself a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle. Do not strife against your Maker, let Him do good work for you. He is doing everything good for you And for me. That is why HE is like this. Swallow everything my brethren. Do not develop hard heart. It will not help you, brethren.
46.      Let us wait and see what God has in stock for us. That is, you will swallow the WORD when it comes out from Him, be very serious to take it,  We cannot do anything against the truth but identify with the truth.
47.       The truth is there that is why from the beginning, when we entered this message if you paid heed unto yourself, you will know that you have received the truth. For He is the truth and He came with the truth.
48.      He has given us the truth, unto you and me. You cannot do anything against the truth but to identify with the truth. Amen.

EXAMINE YOURSELVES
The book of second Corinthians Chapter 13 from verse five to eight. “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
2.          But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates. Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates.
3.          For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth..
4.          The scripture said, Holy Ghost is telling us, examine yourself, whether you be in the faith, prove your own self that Christ is in you except you be reprobates. but I trust that ye shall know that you are not reprobates.
5.          I say, examine yourself even this moment to know whether you are strifing against your Maker, know whether the WORD has sank well with you. Know whether the WORD is sinking well with you. If it is not, let it sink well with you.
6.          It is truth. What you have heard is truth. It is very difficult to save man. But if you swallow it, it will be good unto you because it is truth. It has penetrated into families well! It has penetrated into individuals, well. It has a purpose, look at the handwriting on the wall that sons and daughters of God will manifest in this camp meeting, and no other time.
7.          What is going to be your testimony, if you leave this campground to your various homes, to your various churches? What is going to be your testimony?  
8.          Oh! Brethren begin to examine yourself now. What is going forth now will never cease. It is not going to cease. What will make you not to Identify with the truth? You have seen the truth.
9.          Oh! Brethren, let us identify with the truth. Let us identify with the truth for it will make us good.
10.      You see the reason why you should examine yourself, re-examine yourself and make sure you take the whole WORD. When you make sure you take the whole WORD, and then, swallow it, it will be good unto you,
11.      St John Chapter 17, from verse 22 to 26, And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
12.      I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
13.      Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
14.      And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it : that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them..” (KJV)
15.      You see the purpose of His manifestation. You see the purpose of His coming soon, and I have declared unto them Thy Name and will declare it that the love wherewith thou hast-loved me may be in them and I in them. You see the purpose. You must have to swallow this WORD.
16.      You see why you swallow this WORD. Do not strife against your Maker. And the glory which thou gayest me I have given them. I have given them that they may be one even as we are one.
17.      Have you not received this glory? Has it not be imparted unto you? Why do you want to strife against your Maker? Because you have been told the truth. Why are you strifing against your Maker? It will not do you good. Unless you swallow the WORD. Because it is truth.
18.      We cannot do anything against the truth, but to identify with the truth. “I in them and they in me, and that they may be made perfect in one and that the world may know that thou hast sent me and thou lovest them as thou lovest me.”
19.      So that the world will see the manifestation of sons and daughters of God. We have stayed here for too long. This is when we are going to manifest. We have been in this very world but this is the hour, this is the hour we are going to manifest because He has given us all that we needed.
20.      All that we have needed and we have known the Son, we have known the source where all these things are coming from.
21.      Oh! Brethren, I want you to understand that you identify with the truth, that you identify with the truth. The truth has come.
22.      Oh! But the world hate truth, that is why they crucified Him. They crucified Him but in our midst it should not be so. It cannot be so.
23.      He said, “Father, I will that they also, whom thou have given me be with me where I am... all of them... that they may behold my glory.”
24.      What have we seen? Have we not beheld His glory? Every moment of the day, when you approach Him, you will be very happy because your problem will be solved.
25.      Look at man. You are stiff necked, rebelling against your Maker, rebelling against our Maker.
26.      The WORD we are supposed to take very seriously, and think of it and say good, give me the grace to follow to identify with the truth no matter what you tell me because I have proved it to be truth.
27.      Oh! Brethren, let us be very very careful. Never you shake your head again but rather pray to God. Pray to God to give you the grace, to give you the grace to do whatever HE has commanded you to do, for it will be good unto you, Amen.
28.      We are still going further; He said that “they may behold my glory which thou givest me before the foundation of the world. Thou lovest me, thou lovest me and HE is imparting the same love into His people; unto His brethren.”
29.      Unfortunately, a lot of us are sleeping. What hour of the day is this and you continue to sleep? How long are you going to sleep? Listen to the WORD of God. Listen to the WORD of God for we have identified with the truth.
30.      The truth is there. Why are you strifing against your Maker? Be very careful that you are not going to be destroyed. We are still, going further.
31.      Second Timothy chapter 2 verse 22, Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” (KJV).
32.      Run from anything that stimulates youthful lust. Follow anything that makes you want to do right. Pursue faith and love and peace, and enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.” LB.
33.       Run away from everything that will give you evil thought. Now that the message has gone forth, do not allow evil thought to come into you and take away this truth that you have heard. Rather, try to follow it.
34.      Do not think, do not fashion it to achieve your selfish thought. Take the WORD that has gone forth. It will be good unto you. Do not think. Do not hesitate. Do not try to fashion.
35.      Do not try to put it this way or put it the other way. Take it as God has said it, as He has delivered it unto us for first of all He introduced Himself so that we know the source where all these messages are coming from, but remember that Satan is so subtle.
36.      The moment you think against it, the moment you give it a second thought he will win you. You start diverting the truth into putting many meanings into you. Be very, very careful with the WORD that has gone forth and swallow it like that. Close your eyes and swallow it. It will be good unto you.
37.      Run from anything that stimulates youthful lust. Follow anything that makes you want to do right. Pursue faith and love and peace, and enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.
38.      Stay close to anything that will make you want to do right. What will make you want to do right, is it not the WORD you have heard? Is it not the WORD of God that God have imparted unto you even this moment? Stop strifing against your Maker; take the WORD like that. Amen.

BE VERY CAREFUL
First Corinthians chapter one verse 8 to 10, Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
2.          Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” KJV.
3.          And He will establish you to the end [keep you steadfast, give you strength, and guarantee your vindication; He will be your warrant against all accusation or indictment so that you will be] guiltless and irreproachable in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).
4.          God is faithful (reliable, trust-worthy, and therefore ever true to His promise, and He can be de-pended on); by Him you were called into companionship and participation with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
5.          But I urge and entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you be in perfect harmony and full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions or factions or divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions and judgments.” AMP.  
6.          He will keep you strong right up to the end, and he will keep you free from all blame on the great day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns.
7.          God will surely do this for you, for he always does just what he says, and he is the one who invited you into this wonderful friendship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
8.          Now, dear brothers and sisters, I appeal to you by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ to stop arguing among yourselves. Let there be real harmony so there won't be divisions in the church. I plead with you to be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.” LB.
9.          He is the person that invited you. If he invited you, don’t you think that he will make you good? Without Him calling you there is no way you can be here. He called you and separated you from all the people of the world so that you can worship Him, so that you will obey Him.
10.      Furthermore, he introduced Himself for you to know the God you are worshipping, that you cannot do anything without Him. You cannot do anything without Him. This is the person that has called you so that you will worship Him, and you will follow Him, and when He speaks, the difference is clear.
11.      All your thoughts will be in vain. Our problem is this, we always have something in our mind. And if the message did not go the way we want it, we will be fuming and quarrelling. We will be quarrelling.
12.      It can never go the way you want it, who are you? Are you the person that called Him? He is the person that called you. He is going to save you.
13.      Look at what He is doing so that we will manifest as sons and daughters of God in this generation.
14.      BE VERY CAREFUL. WHO SHALL ALSO CONFIRM YOU UNTO THE END, THAT YE MAY BE BLAMELESS IN THE DAY OF OUR LORD. THIS IS THE DAY OF OUR LORD. THIS IS THE DAY OF APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA.
15.      What is He trying to do? That you will be blameless because He has been sent, HE has been sent to be good unto you and that is why He is speaking like that. That is why He will be rough because He has known man right from the beginning that it is very difficult to save man because we are stiff-necked. That we are stiff-necked.
16.      Brethren, oh! Listen to the WORD for it will make you good. Swallow it for you cannot do anything against the WORD but to identify with the TRUTH.
17.      God is faithful, He who has called you into the fellowship of the saints. You are called unto the fellowship of the saints, and that is what we are enjoying here.
18.      Recognize He that is talking and when He speaks, follow the word He has spoken so that another one will come in. But if that one is on your throat as the voice has spoken it, say, please swallow it so that you will be able to take another one because more and more are coming.
19.      More and more are coming but if you did not swallowed that one I wonder how you are going to swallow another one.
20.      The book of second John verse 9 through 10, “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him Godspeed:” (KJV).
21.      Anyone who runs on ahead [of God] and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ [who is not content with what He taught] does not have God; but he who continues to live in the doctrine (teaching) of Christ [does have God], he has both the Father and the Son.
22.      If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine [is disloyal to what Jesus Christ taught], do not receive him [do not accept him, do not welcome or admit him] into [your] house or bid him Godspeed or give him any encouragement.” AMP.
23.      For if you wander beyond the teaching of Christ, you will not have fellowship with God. But if you continue in the teaching of Christ, you will have fellowship with both the Father and the Son.
24.      If someone comes to your meeting and does not teach the truth about Christ, don't invite him into your house or encourage him in any way. LB.
25.      If you are loyal to what you have been hearing, for it is a hard truth and what you are going to hear now. You will have God too. Then you will have both the Father and the Son.
26.      You will have GOD and His Son too, why, because you have taken His WORD. The WORD has taken full preeminence into your life. You are not doubting. You are not reasoning, you have taken the WORD just as it is.
27.      If anyone comes to you to teach you, and he does not believe what Christ taught, do not even invite him into your home. Do not encourage him in any way. If you do you will be partner with him in His wickedness, Amen.
28.      King James said, whoever that transgresses and abides not in the doctrine of Christ, he hath not God...
29.       Which doctrine have you not received here? What doctrine? Tell me because He is taking His time to lay down all these doctrine, to lay all these doctrines that will give us life so that if we swallow them, it will be well with us. It will be good unto you.
30.      The whole doctrine, you know that doctrine is life and doctrine is faith. This is why we are not denomination, that is why we are not Pentecostals, we look upon the doctrine.
31.      Yesterday we heard very very well when He was talking to us concerning our children. He said if it will be possible with you to do whatsoever you will to bring your children to God, bring them unto God. Give them the doctrine. Teach them the doctrine.
32.      We used Timothy as an example, who his mother taught. Teach your children like that. Please my brethren, let us not belittle that message we got yesterday if we want our children to be saved.
33.      Follow the WORD. Close your eyes and implement whatsoever you heard from Him. No matter the situation, let them hate you now but later they will understand that you never wanted them to perish. Later they will understand.
34.      You see why we ought to take those teaching seriously. Action time! Put all of them in action. All you have been taught. Go and put them in action.
35.      Let me tell you, God is watching upon His WORD. The WORD has gone forth. It will not return to Him void until it accomplishes the purpose for which it is sent.
36.      If you say that He is not going to implement His WORD, You and I are going to eat His WORD that has gone forth, action time. Action time. You are going to put all His WORD into practice.
37.      Romans chapter 8 verse 28 to 29. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.KJV.
38.      We are assured and know that [ God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
39.      For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved be-forehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.” AMP.
40.       “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
41.      For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn, with many brothers and sisters.” LB.
42.      All that are happening to us are for my own good, are for your own good. That we are receiving all these things, that God is in our midst, teaching you and teaching you so that it will be good unto me and unto you.
43.      All that we are hearing, all that we are receiving, you see why you will not strife against your Maker. You see why you must identify with the truth for there is nothing you can do against the truth but to identify with the truth.
44.      And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans…
45.      If we are fitting into His plans. He wants us to fit into His plans. Oh! How I wish we will understand so that we will fit into His plans.
46.      ...From that very beginning God decided that those who come to him and all along he knew who would. Should become like his son, so that his son would be the FIRST, with many brothers”.
47.       “Who then can ever keep Christ love from us? When we have trouble or calamity, when we are hunted down or destroyed, is it because he doesn’t love us anymore? And if we are hungry, or penniless or in danger or threatened with death, has God deserted us?”  
48.      No, He has not deserted us. That is why it is going like this. Who shall separate us from the love of God? Shall tribulation or distress or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, nor peril, or sword? Having known who is speaking.
49.      Having introduced Himself to us, what shall separate us from His love? What will separate us from the love of God, is it persecution? Is it tribulation, is famine, is it nakedness, nor peril, or war? What will separate us from the love of God?
50.      As a loving father, watch His action. If He beats you with this hand, He will call you back with the other one. Have you not seen it? Have you witnessed it? Then you ask yourself what shall separate us from the love of God?
51.      We have seen the manifestation which is the interpretation. He is standing among men doing all these work, right from the beginning, our greatest undoing is unbelief but I thank Him. He has removed that from us and He is preparing you, He is preparing me to manifest as sons and daughters of God.
52.      What is more, God told us that He must be LORD over us whether we want it or not, because right from the foundation, HE has predestinated to be here. If not by predestination, none of us will be here.
53.      He wants us to have the same spirit that is in Him, so that we will not separate, we become one, so that we will not strife against our Maker. So that when His WORD goes forth we will take it. We will swallow it and it will be good unto us. Amen.

WE CAN DO NOTHING
AGAINST THE TRUTH
Romans chapter 9 read from verse 27 to 28; Isaiah also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.” (KJV).
2.          And Isaiah calls out (solemnly cries aloud) over Israel: Though the number of the sons of Israel be like the sand of the sea, only the remnant (a small part of them) will be saved [ from perdition, condemnation, judgment]!
3.          For the Lord will execute His sentence upon the earth [He will conclude and close His account with men completely and without delay], rigorously cutting it short in His justice.”  AMP.
4.          Concerning Israel, Isaiah the prophet cried out, "Though the people of Israel are as numerous as the sand on the seashore, only a small number will be saved.
5.          For the Lord will carry out his sentence upon the earth quickly and with finality." LB.
6.          The Holy Ghost is speaking this, “Isaiah also crieth concerning Israel, though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved”.
7.          If you work hard, you will be among the remnant. Many a time, God came down as a result of His remnant,; work hard so that you will be among this remnant that He is talking about. He knows what He is saying. He is looking at all HIS WORD.
8.          Work hard, swallow all that you have heard, it will make you good. I say it will make you good. He knows what He is doing, for He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness because a short work will the LORD do upon the face of the earth.
9.          And a very short work, He has come to do. He has come to do, and He is crying that He has overstayed, that He has over-stayed just because of you and because of me. But this is the hour we are going to manifest.  
10.      Oh! Brethren, let us be very careful. We cannot do anything against the truth but to identify with the truth. The truth is there, we are following the truth and the truth is in His hands, which He has brought to us.
11.      Romans 9 verse 30, “What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith” (KJV).
12.      It makes me good. Look at this scripture. It says, ‘What shall we say then that the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, had attained righteousness even the righteousness, which is of faith.”
13.      Why can’t we keep it up for those that were not have attained unto righteousness, but we are still strifing against our Maker, while He has declared us righteous people.
14.      You see, it is because we do not read the WORD. We don’t allow the WORD to take full preeminence in our lives. If you read the WORD of God, you will see what GOD has in stock for His people; the Gentiles, we are not in the programme before but it has pleased God to separate us and called us HIS church. So that we will worship Him, so that we will believe Him the more, and HE went further and introduced Himself so that we will know HIM that is speaking to us. So that we will not despise any instruction.
15.      Be fully aware that God cannot do without HIS instruction from Genesis to revelation, that’s the WORD. It must be an instruction, giving you an instruction of what to do. Why then are you strifing against your Maker? It is because you’ve not recognized Him.
16.      However, I am happy that He has introduced Himself and we have recognized Him so that we will no longer strife against our Maker. That we will obey every instruction that proceeds out of His mouth, for all those instructions are for good and not for evil.
17.      No matter that, it will bite you, but with time if you obey the instruction, you will reap the goodness..
18.      1 John Chapter 3 Verse 14, If we love our Christian brothers and sisters, it proves that we have passed from death to eternal life. But a person who has no love is still dead.LB.
19.      Has HE manifested this love in our midst? The answer is yes; a high standard has been lifted up for you and me to take example.
20.      We know that we have passed from death unto life. Happy are ye if you recognize that you have passed from death unto life. Be happy, you have passed from death unto life from the WORDS you have received, from the Son Of Man that is in our midst, you have passed from death unto life.
21.      He said, “…because we love the brethren. He that loveth his brother abideth in life; he that loveth not his brother abideth in death”
22.      That is why a lot of people have decided to identify with us. They say that the love in our midst is too much. But that is not all,
23.      If you cannot swallow the WORD, if you are not taking the WORD, it is the WORD you swallow that will make you manifest this love.
24.      Holy Ghost told us that if we reach this pyramid of love, that we are not going to stay long there.
25.      There is no way you can preach love but the manifestation through your character.
26.      Verse 18 of the same chapter, ‘My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
27.      And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.
28.      For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
29.      Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.
30.      And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. (KJV).
31.      Little children, let us not love [merely] in theory or in speech but in deed and in truth (in practice and in sincerity).
32.      By this we shall come to know (perceive, recognize, and understand) that we are of the Truth, and can re-assure (quiet, conciliate, and pacify) our hearts in His presence,
33.      Whenever our hearts in [tormenting] self-accusation make us feel guilty and condemn us. [For we are in God’s hands.] For He is above and greater than our consciences (our hearts), and He knows (perceives and understands) everything [nothing is hidden from Him].
34.      And, beloved, if our consciences (our hearts) do not accuse us [if they do not make us feel guilty and condemn us], we have confidence (complete assurance and boldness) before God,
35.      And we receive from Him what-ever we ask, because we [watchfully] obey His orders [observe His suggestions and injunctions, follow His plan for us] and [habitually] practice what is pleasing to Him.” AMP.
36.      Dear children, let us stop just saying we love each other; let us really show it by our actions.
37.      It is by our actions that we know we are living in the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before the Lord, even if our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.
38.      Dear friends, if our conscience is clear, we can come to God with bold confidence.
39.      And we will receive whatever we request because we obey him and do the things that please him. LB.
40.      He says, ‘my little children, my little children, let us not love in WORD, neither in tongue but indeed, and in truth we cannot do anything against the truth but to identify with the truth, Amen.
41.      The scripture says, beloved if our heart condemns us not then have we confidence towards God. And whatever we ask, we receive of him because we keep his commandments and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.”
42.      What are those things that are pleasing in his sight; if He sees you obeying HIS WORD; if He sees you keeping His commandments, if He sees you doing what you have been taught, then He will be pleased.  
43.      And this is His commandment, ‘that we should believe in the Name of His Son, and love one another as He gave us commandment. And he that keepeth His commandment dwelleth in Him and He in him…
44.      Because you have kept His commandment, you are dwelling in Him and Him in you. The same spirit is imparted into you, therefore you have passed from death unto life.
45.      You see why we must manifest this time. After all, we have been taught a lot. He said, ‘and hereby we know that he abideth in us; by the spirit, which HE has imparted in us. By the spirit.”
46.      Yesterday, HE imparted His spirit unto us, and the WORD is that spirit, why are you now strifing against your Maker? Why are you now strifing against Him, against the word, against the truth which has been imparted unto you? Instead of saying, “God give me the grace that I will abide, that I will worship you; that I may follow you in truth and in heart so that I will manifest as one of the sons and daughters of God.
47.      Look at first John Chapter 4 verse 17 to 21, “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment....”
48.      That we may have what? Boldness in the Day of Judgment. Boldness in the Day of Judgment because we have been fully taught.  
49.      …“because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him; because he first loved us (KJV)
50.      He said, “Herein is our love made perfect that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment because as he is so are we in this world”.
51.      He said, “There is no fear in love but perfect love casteth out fear because fear has torment, he that feareth is not made perfect in love.”
52.      This love must be made perfect in you and in me because a perfect example has been laid. If a perfect example was not laid there is no way the Holy Ghost will be talking about it. HE has set up a standard. We cannot do anything against the truth but to identify with the truth. Amen.

HOUR OF MANIFESTATION OF SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD
First Peter chapter 1 verses 14 to 17, “As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance...,”
2.          As obedient children who have been taught. As children who have known their God. As obedient children not fashioning yourselves according to your former lust in ignorance.
3.          You see why, if you love God and understand His WORD; there is no way you will go back to your old life.
4.          I pity those that after hearing this WORD, when they go back to their local assembly they will not accept this WORD. They will like to go back, condemnation will be for them. What is your testimony after this camp meeting?
5.          but as he who hath called you is holy be you holy in all manner of conversation.
6.          He says, as he that called you is holy, we have witnessed this holiness being practiced. A standard has been lifted up by the introduction being made. We have no excuse my brethren. Know that God is no respecter of persons. I say, God does not respect anybody but HE respects His WORD in you.
7.          But as He who has called you is holy so be ye holy in all manner of conversation’.
8.          In all manner of conversation, the truth has been established. In all manner of conversation, you can outsmart me but you cannot out smart God. In business, in your offices, in your workshops, in your kitchen, in your yard, be holy, recognize what you have received.
9.          Recognize whom you have received it from. Be holy in all manner of conversation for He is following you. He is very mindful of you because He has identified with you. If you are just like other Pentecostals that do everything in his name, that can do signs and wonders in His name, cast out demons in His name, do miracles in His name but when it reaches to take His name in baptism, they will say “No, no, no. I do not want this man’s trouble because the moment I take His name in baptism, it is a mark of ownership and HE will destroy me.” They are wise. Indeed, they are wise.
10.      That is why they run away from His baptism but you are not the same. You are not like them. You’ve taken His Name in baptism. And He is following you wherever you are going. That is why in our day we see the Son of Man even physically.
11.      When we have problem we see Him coming from the other side and rescue you from that problem. That is why He is everywhere. Do you know many times He has travelled to Jos? DO you know how many times He has travelled to other parts of the country?
12.      Be very careful. Do not belittle what you are hearing. Let me tell you. Remember that the first time the children of Israel saw His glory, when He told Moses to gather them, they said, “No, no, no, Moses, we will not see Him. Go and see Him, whatsoever He tells you we will do.” Because they have seen His glory.
13.      And right from that moment, any person that transgresses He will not spare. Right from that moment they have seen Him, they have known Him, they were in danger.
14.      I want you to know that we are in danger here. If you have not taken the WORD, you are shaking your head, you are in danger because He has introduced Himself.
15.      You are no more in doubt again, who the Son of God is; who is in our midst, hence you have no excuse.
16.      Remember that God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He has not changed and you want Him to change now, no, no, no. He cannot change His WORD because of you.
17.      “…because it is written, Be ye holy, for I am holy and if ye call on the father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear...
18.      Verse 21, for as much as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers. But with the precious blood of Christ and of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
19.      Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world but was manifest in these last times for you.
20.      Who by him do believe in God that raised him up from the dead and gave him glory that your faith and hope might be in God’. (KJV).
21.      And said, if you call upon the father who without respect of person judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning in fear...
22.      Pass it in fear, fear of God not hypocritical fear. Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things as silver and gold from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers...
23.      Watch verse 19,... But with the precious blood of Christ as of a lamb without blemish and spot.
24.      He said who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifested in these last times for you.
25.      Was manifested for you and for me. Happy are we to be in God’s kingdom. The scripture said, who by Him we do believe in God that raised Him up from the dead and gave Him glory that your faith and hope might in Him.
26.      First Peter chapter 5, verse 6 and 7, “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you..” (KJV)
27.      Brethren, humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time. Humble yourself, do not first of all allow pride to take over you.
28.      No, no, no, you humble yourself. Humble yourself for we have known WHO is speaking to us. We have known who is in our midst.
29.      This is the hour of manifestation of sons and daughters of God. We must manifest whether we like it or not. Casting all your care upon Him for He careth for you.
30.      Is HE not caring for us? Is He not a loving father unto you? That is why you go to Him with your problems, and it will be solved. Look at such a loving father. Are you paying Him? Instead, He will bring out His own to sponsor the ministry.
31.      What have we not seen in this ministry? What manifestation have we not seen? To prove He that is in our midst and He has spoken. HE is speaking to us. Having introduced Himself once more so that everyone of us in this eastern part of the country will not say that we don’t know Him.
32.      The same He did in the North. Left for Onitsha Church, they have known because they have been taught. They have been seeing everything, but still bringing everyone of us to the same level so that you have no excuse; so that I have no excuse, so that I have no excuse, if I despise any instruction, if you despise any instruction.
33.      We are in the spoken WORD ministry. I do not know how it will go but it will be in that angle, that thing you love most, just like you heard it yesterday. Most of us love their wives. Most love their husbands that they no longer want to back away. They no longer want to obey the WORD but it has gone forth.
34.      The WORD has gone forth in truth. That is why we must identify with the truth. We cannot do anything against the truth but to identify with it.
35.      Philippians chapter 2 from verse 1, “If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
36.      Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
37.      Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
38.      Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
39.      Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
40.      But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
41.      And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
42.      Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.” KJV.
43.      Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love?
44.      Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and sympathetic?
45.      Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one heart and purpose.
46.      Don't be selfish; don't live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself.
47.      Don't think only about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and what they are doing. Your attitude should be the same that Christ Jesus had.
48.      Though he was God, he did not demand and cling to his rights as God.
49.      He made himself nothing; he took the humble position of a slave and appeared in human form.
50.      And in human form he obediently humbled himself even further by dying a criminal's  death on a cross.
51.      Because of this, God raised him up to the heights of heaven and gave him a name that is above every other name.” LB.
52.      SO BY whatever [appeal to you there is in our mutual dwelling in Christ, by whatever] strengthening and consoling and encouraging [our relationship] in Him [affords], by whatever persuasive incentive there is in love, by whatever participation in the [Holy] Spirit [we share], and by whatever depth of affection and compassionate sympathy,
53.      Fill up and complete my joy by living in harmony and being of the same mind and one in purpose, having the same love, being in full ac-cord and of one harmonious mind and intention.
54.      Do nothing from factional motives [through contentiousness, strife, selfishness, or for unworthy ends] or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. Instead, in the true spirit of humility (lowliness of mind) let each regard the others as better than and superior to himself [thinking more highly of one another than you do of yourselves].
55.      Let each of you esteem and look upon and be concerned for not [merely] his own interests, but also each for the interests of others.
56.      Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:]
57.      Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [ possessing the fullness of the at-tributes which make God God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped or retained,
58.      But stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being.
59.      And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross!
60.      Therefore [because He stooped so low] God has highly exalted Him and has freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name.” AMP.
61.      If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, any comfort of love, any fellowship of the spirit, any bowel of mercies, fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same accord and of one mind.
62.      We must reach to this. When we have one mind with one accord we speak because it is the same spirit. God knows what He is doing these days that we must manifest as sons and daughters of God.
63.      He said, “Do nothing through strife or vainglory but in lowliness of mind let each esteem one greater than himself. That we will manifest as sons and daughters of God.”
64.      Brethren, I thank you. If we swallow this WORD, if we allow the one we heard to settle down so that the one that is coming, we will swallow it because we cannot do anything against the truth but for the truth. Amen.
