THE MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN (The Background)

Preached on Sunday, 8th January, 2017 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE SUPREME INTELLIGENCE” “Truth has no substitute”

WAIT AND WATCH AS EVENTS
UNFOLD ON A DAILY BASIS
I allowed you to listen to the testimonies of 1997 not knowing the contents but I believe that God who inspired Me to pick that book this morning fulfilled His intensions to the letter.
2.           If we never read that message, we could not have seen
that God had already made a provision for the restoration of people unconditionally and it coincided on the seventh year.
3.           And you know My message “The Jubilee Year”: every seven years, captives must be set free, debts must be cancelled, slaves regain freedom, pardon is extended to people unconditionally and whosoever that refuses to partake of it becomes a debtor in the sight of God. God will require you to account for it.
4.           Then, if you are set free and you refused to go, your ears would be perforated, a sign that you have decided to remain a perpetual slave. No other remedy!
5.           That is why I told you that this year is not the year of telling you what you should expect in Nigeria or globally. I told you everything from the beginning to the end. Your duty is to wait and watch as you see events unfold on a day to day basis.
6.            You see God stirring up people, using them to fulfill His purposes. To you that are still in this Faith, let Me believe you have believed from the very beginning and you have remained steadfast in your belief till today.
7.           Note it from Me. Not because the Bible said or the Lord Jesus Christ said it, perseverance is needed if you must be transformed. He that perseveres till the end, the same shall be saved.
8.           You can only be saved, if you hold the profession of your faith without wavering till the end. When you are striving for mastery, you are not crowned until you strive lawfully till the end. Nobody wins a trophy when he fails midway. It is when you get to the end that you will be considered for a trophy, no matter how small, trophy is trophy.
9.           At least, if you do not win a trophy for coming first or second, win a trophy for participating. Let your participation be recognized in the end. Some people might not be saved because they were in this most holy Faith, they may be considered for loving the children of God.
10.        Now, I go back to where we are. Because I told you to expect Me today. Last week was our love feast. And we welcomed even visitors from all walks of life. Treated them with love amazingly and ushered them into this year.
11.        However,  today is a meeting day between God and His people. Even if the Devil is here, I will regard him as God’s people until I prove that Devil otherwise.
12.        You are My friends, you remain My friends until I prove you otherwise. And I do not believe I have done My best in any human being until I have achieved My best. That is why I do not relent.
13.        I believe there is hope for every living human being. There is hope. That which you do not know today, you may know it tomorrow or as we get along. Amen.

THE MYSTERY OF
 THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN (INTRODUCTION)
Now you have come to the end of all things, necessity is laid on Me to give you this message. Today is the background. I do not know when I will preach it. But I will give you the scriptural background today.
2.           If you understand the background, you will catch Me whenever I will unveil it. Because it is a message that will speak of its own because “Thus saith the Lord” requires no interpretation. All you have to do is to wait for it.
3.           If God says, “When I want to magnify My Name in the midst of My people, I will show them My Original Form”, it does not require interpretation.
4.           When the original body appeared, did we talk again? From that day, somebody could say, “The Godhead is like this or like that” for we have seen Him. That is exactly where we are now. I told you I can never call you an unbeliever neither will I call you a saint.
5.           You are not an unbeliever, you are not a saint. You are not a pagan, I do not know what you are but you know what you are. If I should tell you what you are, you may be offended at Me. but you know who you are, what you are. And what you are today determines what you will be tomorrow.
6.           Let Me go to the message directly. Please follow Me, I am using the Bible. I want good readers that will dictate the Word. I will use the Bible all through. The spoken Word is coming and that is, whenever it will come, to explain all you will hear from Me this very afternoon.
7.           I used the testimonies to keep you waiting, to make sure that all that were billed to be here today arrived here. Nobody came late today. Even the people that came from Abakiliki, Enugu-Ezike arrived here around 11 o’clock, they never came late. You can only be late if the Son of Man mounted the pulpit and opened the message before you arrived. Thus, I am saying, Good morning to all of you.
8.           You will cherish Me anyhow. The most offensive human being is on the pulpit to preach the most offensive message.
9.           Let the Bible readers take their positions immediately. I do not want infants, I want adults. Infants I mean, infants concerning the Faith. I want reasonable people, not infants concerning the Faith, to read the scriptures for Me. I am making use of two major translations, King James Version and Amplified.
10.        Keep living Bible and Good news by the side for I may request you to read them. If you know you cannot read audibly, do not attempt reading for I may send you out of the fellowship due to provocation. If you distort a passage, you will be in trouble with Me. so, it is better you do not read than to read and incur My wrath.
11.        I want you to read because the written Word introduces everybody to the Spoken Word. The Bible is the written Word we met. It is the scroll we met. It is not the Word of the hour until it is confirmed by the messenger of the hour.
12.        But no man is the messenger of the hour we are in but Christ, the very Elohim. He will say the one you should believe and the one you should set aside. Amen.
13.        Are we living in Moses’ day? Okay. But who was Moses? This is the third dispensation of Moses. The first Moses came, second Moses came, the third Moses is here. If you had known the scriptures, you would have known that He that was in Moses is here. Who was in the Church in the wilderness?
14.        What else do you want to hear? He that instituted the Church, He that brought them out of the land of bondage was the One that pointed everybody to Moses.
15.        He was the One that alerted everybody before the Lord Jesus came, telling them that the Lord God among them must raise a man like unto Moses whom they will believe, whom they will pin their hopes on. Is it not true?
16.        When He left the scene, He told them clearly, “A little while, the world seeth Me no more, but you will see Me. because I live, you will live also. I will not leave you comfortless; I will come again and be with you”. He went further to say, “Lo, I am with you even till the end of the world”.
17.        Tell Me when He left His people. But He was changing His Form, changing His Dress and people never knew. That is the Man: the same Ancient Of Days, the same Rock of Ages. That is the Man.
18.        No man is adequate to interpret the holy writing if not the writer. He that inspired the writing is in your midst. Be it Holy Quran or Bible, He owns all. He is the link between the Moon and the Star.
19.        That is why sons and daughters of Abraham must acknowledge Him. Whether they be of Ismaila (Ishmael) or of Ishiaku (Isaac), they wind up in Me. why worrying? Why the fuss?
20.        No bi Me own all of them?  Na Me marry their mothers. Na Me even marry the concubines.
21.        Why quarreling over inheritance when I have enough that is more than sufficient for all of them even if they be like sand in the ocean.
22.        Concerning the promise, the children of Abraham shall be greater than the number of sand in the seashore. Why are you fussing and quarrelling? If He does not step in, the fuss will not end. He will place you where you belong to.
23.        Must we all speak the same language? No. I say, “No”. Must we all have the same colour of the skin? No.
24.        Whether you be Egyptian, whether you be of any other place. But you know there is no Israel. I am the Israel. Na Me go tell you who is Israeli and who is not. For there is no place called Israel. Israel was created with the mouth, and was instituted by law.
25.        A man born of a woman was answering the name Jacob; it pleased God to rename him Israel. A man later metamorphosed into a nation.
26.        Who was the father of Jacob? Isaac. Who was the father of Isaac? Abraham. We dey come to something ooh. But that is not the message. Let Me go to the pulpit. I do not want to come out again. And pray that I should not come out. If I continue to come out, you will not go today. You will pay for last week.
27.        Open your scriptures with Me. “The Word of God intoxicates me like wine; the Word of God intoxicates me like wine. I am the Living Manna that came down from Heaven. I am the Living Bread. I am the One holding and dishing out the food which you should strive to get; which whosoever that eateth from it shall live forever.
28.        Thus, strive not for the food that perisheth which your fathers ate and perished. Strive for the food that endureth unto Everlasting Life which the Son of Man alone giveth, for Him alone had the Father sealed.
29.        I am the Sole Signatory to the passport to Heaven. All that will enter must present their passport bearing My Name. I do not have any assistant. I have no deputy. Your prayers can never go anywhere without My Signature. Is it not scriptural? Is it not in the Bible? It is only in His Signature that God can read your petition.
30.        When the Devil presented his petition, God said, “I reject your accusation, you are wasting your time for I had already purposed to bless and not to curse. Who are you to query My decision when My decision is final and irrevocable? If a human being can issue out an irrevocable power of attorney, what can you say about God?
31.        I am going to the pulpit. I do not know, please, place a barrier here, block the passages. Amen.
PRAYER
32.        Let us bow down our heads. Our Heavenly Father, give us spiritual insight, spiritual understanding, spiritual wisdom into Your Word, that we may be in Your presence forever through Christ our Lord we pray. Amen.

LEAN NOT ON YOUR
 OWN UNDERSTANDING (1)
H
ebrews chapter 4, Living Bible, King James and Amplified. Hebrews chapter 4 verses 1 through 3. “…Let us therefore fear,…”
2.           Note it, let us therefore fear,
3.           “…Lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest,…”
4.           Lest, a promise being left us.
5.           “…Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest,…”
6.           Of entering into His promised rest.
7.           …any of you should seem to come short of it.
8.           Was He referring to those outside? He was referring to His people –Those that were with Him inside to whom the Kingdom was meant for. If there was no need, if it was possible, if God intended that they must be there whether they behave right or wrong, do you think there would be a need for this warning?
9.           Warning came to cancel: “Once saved, always saved”. Warning came to tell you that your ticket can be cancelled. That even your ticket can be given to another person so that you know how to behave yourself.
10.        Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them:
11.         Unto us was the gospel preached as well as unto them. What we are hearing today and jumping up, we were not the first people to hear it. There were people who heard it even before us but they never entered into the promised rest. God never disappointed them, they disappointed themselves.
12.        For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the Word preached did not profit them,…
13.        The Word preached profiteth them nothing.
14.        But the Word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
15.        Have you seen it? Those that heard the Word never applied faith. They had no faith to receive the Word of promise so that the Word will be their watchword, will be their guide. For without the Word, they will do nothing.
16.        They never received the Word that way. They heard it, jubilated and set it aside that they might have their own way. Did God save them anyhow? Never, never.
17.         For we which have believed…
18.        But we, underline “Believed”.
19.        For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest:
20.        Who swore in His wrath that those people that never believed, that never took Him serious, although they were brought out from the land of bondage, He crossed them along the Red Sea, gave them manna from Heaven, healed them when they were sick, cured them of snake bite and every other thing, they saw the Pillar of Cloud in the day, they enjoyed the Ball Of Fire in the night, they were beneficiaries of God’s bountiful blessings.
21.        They saw the Elohim, ate and drank with Him. Not His similitude, His personality, yet God swore in His wrath, if they shall enter the promised land. What shall it profit you to enjoy all you have been enjoying so far in this Faith, to see all you have seen, heard all you have heard, only in the end, you miss Eternal Life?
22.        If people missed it before, people will miss it again. God was not referring to outsiders. He was not referring to heathens, He was referring to the people He called His own, He brought out, He took care of. Along the way, their carelessness, their stupidities, caused them Eternal Life.
23.        By this, I am saying, “Do not ever jubilate too much. Be humble, be sober, constantly re-examining yourselves to know whether you are holding unto the Faith and progressively producing the fruit thereof. For only then shall you be counted worthy of the Kingdom of Heaven.
24.         You may be counted worthy of the Kingdom of God and marked out of the Kingdom of Heaven. You may enjoy the fellowship in the Kingdom of God with children of God but at the end, you will be given a place among the unbelievers. What will it profit you? And that is where we are now.
25.        I am no longer talking to the general public; I am talking to the Bride. And there is no better time I should come to you this way than at this point where you are watching and waiting with societal pressures on you.
26.        When the tendency is there for people to go after worldly affairs. Thinking that once they have come to the gate, they have arrived; not knowing they have not been clothed with immortality.
27.        The Prophet said, “If you are not careful, all you have been laboring for all these years, Satan will destroy all in one second”. It is not a big deal. It does not require disobeying the whole messages. One you flagrantly disobeys counts you out, marks you out. 
28.        For we which have believed…
29.        For we which have believed, for a believer believeth all. A believer believeth all. He is never selective.  
30.        For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
31.        Have you seen it? This Promise, this Work had already been finished and we are bid to come and enjoy. We are bid to come and enjoy paradise, enjoy Eternal Life which we never labored for. It has already been finished. God had already made a provision before bringing them out of the land of bondage but they could not enjoy it due to unbelief.
32.        Amplified. Therefore, while the promise of entering His rest still holds and is offered [today], let us be afraid [[a]to distrust it], lest any of you should think he has come too late and has come short of [reaching] it. 
33.        For indeed we have had the glad tidings [Gospel of God] proclaimed to us just as truly as they [the Israelites of old did when the good news of deliverance from bondage came to them]; but the message they heard did not benefit them, because it was not mixed with faith (with the leaning of the entire personality on God…
34.        With the leaning of the entire personality on God.
35.        With the leaning of the entire personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power…
36.        With the leaning of the entire personality on God. You lean on God. Lean not on your own understanding. They refused to apply faith. Faith would have compelled them to depend on God, rely on God, trust in God. They could not do that. They trusted in themselves, they depended on their efforts, they could not lean their entire personality on God.
37.         They could not allow God to have His way. For that reason, God took oath, swore in His name against them. Were they children of God? Yes. Were they saved from Egypt? Yes. Saved in the red sea? Yes.
38.        Were they partakers of God’s blessings in the wilderness? Yes. Did they see the glory of God? Yes. Did the elders eat and drink with Him? Yes. Did they hear His audible voice? Yes. Did they see the entire personality of the Godhead? Yes. What can you say about the Pillar of Cloud? Were they Israelis? Yes. This truth could not have come out at better time than now.
39.        These things happened to them for an example and were documented as a warning unto us. Remember, all things that were written in the scriptures aforetime, were written for our learning, it happened to them for our example that we should not pattern after them.
40.         If after seeing all these things, hearing these things, we still fall victim of the same offence, who do we blame? The same gospel that brought down the Godhead in their day is the one that brought the Godhead down in our day.
41.         I told you in 1993 that as far as God liveth and I live, before your eyes, I must bring down the Godhead. Before your eyes, it happened. When you were filled with doubt, I said, “Come with your camera and you will see He that has been dealing with you all these years to banish unbelief”. I do not know where to start again.  
42.        But the message they heard did not benefit them, Did not benefit them. It profiteth them nothing. Let not what you wrote in your jotters, let not all the “Amen” you said, “Praise God, Na Him! This is God”, may they never stand to testify against you due to your sheer carelessness, stupidity.
43.        If you are setting God’s Word aside, be it known to you that God must set you aside. If you take the Word of God seriously, God must take you seriously. If you pass sleepless nights because of the things of God, God will pass sleepless nights because of your affairs. 
44.        The more you labour in God’s vine yard, the more God labours in your own vine yard. The same cup you measure unto God, the same cup He measures back to you. If He did not respect the elders of Israel, not even Moses was respected. He never respected them because they were Jews or Israelis, He slammed down righteousness, today, you think He will respect us? He will bow down before us? No, no.
45.        You should be very careful the way you quote Grace. Grace is standing before you handing down Truth. Grace is standing before you issuing out truth. For the law came by Moses, Grace and Truth came by the Lord Jesus Christ.
46.        It is Grace that brought you face to face with God and you did not die. And because you are face to face with God, He now gives the trut out to you. It is the Truth that saves you.
47.        Grace cannot save you, it must be Grace and Truth for you to be saved. Grace must appear, then Truth will proceed from grace.  Then if you take grace and reject truth, you have failed. You take truth and reject grace, you have failed.
48.        Grace and Truth is one personality. One personality. Yes, the Word they heard, everything they received from God did not profit them anything. I think it is better if they had enjoyed the world and perished, instead of enjoying the goodies from God and then perish.
49.        Who was responsible for their destruction? Their unbelief, their lack of faith. For they could not holistically lean on God, but they leaned on their own understanding.
50.        You see why Jesus saw this danger; the Son of Man saw it and gave you a message, “Lean not on your own understanding”. Nobody has ever leaned on his own understanding without making a shipwreck.
51.        But the message they heard did not benefit them, because it was not mixed with faith (with the leaning of the entire personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power,…
52.         In absolute trust and confidence in His Word.
53.         “…Absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness) by those who heard it; neither were they united in faith with the ones [Joshua and Caleb] who heard (did believe). For we who have believed (adhered to and trusted in and relied on God) do enter that rest,…” Have you seen the condition? We that have heard, believed, relied, depended and trusted in, leaned the entire personality on Him and stop leaning on our personal understanding, we have already entered.  
54.        This is a background. I am yet to speak on this matter for it is a serious matter. Lest you will be self-opinionated into believing that being a member of the fellowship of the Bride ushers you into everlasting life. Na lie.
55.        Have I not be sounding it before? Have you not been hearing it from Me, even the elders? Have I ever given you the impression that all of you will make it? That you are entering anyhow? Rather I have been asking you whether God had saved people anyhow before.
56.        If God will save anyhow, what is the essence of preaching to you? The Word is given to regulate you and I. For without the Word, you will not know God’s righteous demand from you.
57.        How can I know God’s righteous demand for me? How can I attend the perfect stature of Christ if He does not give out His Word? How will I know when I have attained it and when I am struggling to attain it? Amen.
58.        In a continuous education, nobody graduates. For that reason, it is stratified. That is why we have academic calendar, so that you know there is going to be a transition from one year to another year.
59.         You know the exact year you are graduating if you are following it strictly. Is it not true? But if it is left open, no stratification, no calendar, continuous reading, you will graduate in eternity. It is when you are tired, you go away.
60.        Let us continue. I love this stage. Because we have come to the end of all things. You are now being told those things we heard from the very beginning in part, they are now being heard in full so that those that are desiring earnestly to enter the Kingdom of Heaven and dwell with God eternally will know God’s righteous demands from them.
61.        I am not preaching “Repent or you Perish or Repent and be Converted,” no. what I am dishing out is something that is evidently set clear, your heart bearing Me witness. Amen.

LEAN NOT ON YOUR
 OWN UNDERSTANDING (2)
For we who have believed (adhered to and trusted in and relied on God) do enter that rest, in accordance with His declaration that those…
2.           In accordance to God’s declaration. So God could make a declaration. “I will declare said the Lord God Almighty”.
3.           In accordance with His declaration that those [who did not believe] should not enter…
4.           Those who did not believe should not enter. That is why God has been asking the question, “If you do not believe, why are you here?”
5.           I remember in the beginning, this believing was not imposed on anybody. We were told that we should enquire, evaluate, investigate, scrutinize and be convinced. Unless you are convinced, do not show concern. Even if you are called the Devil, agree you are a Devil provided you are certain. For Eternal Life has no second chance.
6.           It will take a stupid fellow to gamble with his eternal destiny. It takes a stupid fellow to gamble with his eternal destiny.
7.           LET THE FEAR OF GOD COMPEL YOU TO DO THE THINGS YOU OUGHT TO DO RIGHT. BECAUSE IF AFTER STAYING IN THIS MOST HOLY FAITH, YOU ARE HERE EVERY DAY, AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU ARE GIVEN A PLACE WITH THE PEOPLE THAT YOU WERE CONDEMNING, PEOPLE THAT WERE SEEING YOU JUMPING UP AND DOWN, MILLING AROUND THE SON OF MAN, WHAT WILL YOU GIVE AS YOUR EXCUSE? WHAT WILL YOU TELL THEM THAT HINDERED YOU? OF ALL MEN, SUCH PEOPLE WILL BE THE MOST MISERABLE.
8.           IT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER YOU ENJOYED LIFE WITH THE HEATHENS, PERISH WITH THEM THAN TO DENY YOURSELF THE PLEASURES OF THIS LIFE, COME INTO THIS FAITH, PASS THROUGH THE RIGORS OF  THIS FAITH, AT THE END OF THE DAY, CARELESSNESS, PRIDE OF LIFE, CRAVE FOR MATERIALISM WILL HINDER YOU. GOD FORBID! I SAY, GOD FORBID!!
9.           What I am saying is not too far from where you are. Events around us, events globally, events in the Middle East will tell every true seed of God that the Son of Man is standing just less than a step into Paradise. For anything can happen any time from now. All end time prophesies have come to pass. One thing remaineth.
10.        Any day that Voice goes forth, the dead in Christ will come out, we that are alive, remained in Him will meet with them in the air. The whole world, that is the elect worldwide will be meeting in the air forming a constellation of Stars.   
11.        If you are conversant with the functional system of every airplane, you will know that no man orders the airplane to fly. Airplane is programmed. The time for it to take off is there, the time for starting the engine is there, how long the engine will zoom before the chambers will open, all computerized.
12.         The pilot will just enter, lock up everywhere, command the passengers to faster their seat belts. Once the clock chimes, you see the thing rolling. How many times, it will go through the run way before escalating is there, not the pilot. Even the speed is programmed. The bearing is there. 
13.        Remember, we are waiting for time; time is not waiting for us. The whole mechanics have been put together, the dynamics have been put together, the Pilot is in the cockpit, the engine is zooming. The doors, windows locked: “Son of Man, close the book, seal up the testimony”.
14.        You will know where we are by the time I will be talking. But let us finish reading scriptures.
15.         In accordance with His declaration that those [who did not believe] should not enter…
16.        Those who did not believe. Who were they? Those that could not holistically, personally lean on God and God alone. They did not trust God, they did not depend on God, they did not even rely on Him. They were having their ways.
17.        And God allowed them for He had already concluded the matter, took an oath without inviting any of them. When the Lord took the oath, did He invite anybody? He vowed within Himself and that was the end of the controversy. So, they did whatever they wanted to do.
18.        In accordance with His declaration that those [who did not believe] should not enter when He said, As I swore in My wrath, They shall not enter My rest; and this He said although [His] works had been completed and prepared [and waiting for all who would believe] .
19.        Whatever is from God is eternal. Nothing can be added nor subtracted. Look at the time He finished it. And since that time, many have been striving to enter. Because it is a narrow part. And the Lord Jesus enjoined the people in His day to strive that they may enter.
20.         Stop worrying whether it is broad or wide or whether there are too many of you. But strive that you may enter. For there are many that would like to enter but they will not. Many, many things will hinder them from making it. They are desiring to make it. Many things will hinder them.
21.        …and this He said although [His] works had been completed and prepared [and waiting for all who would believe] from the foundation of the world.
22.        Who was waiting for people that will believe even from the foundation of the world? Before you came into existence, a provision has been made. A conditional provision tied to your obedience to the revealed truth in your own day. References were made to Caleb and Joshua concerning the people in their day; that they pattern after the two.
23.        They did not have the faith that was found in Caleb and Joshua. They never united their faith with that of their leaders. They had different faith. They could not trust in their leader to guide them through. So they leaned on their own understanding.
24.        In Moses’ day, they leaned on their own understanding which warranted them to find fault with Moses. They leaned on their own understanding in Jesus’ day which made them to find fault with Jesus. So it happened with the Apostles.
25.        You must lean on your own understanding for you to find fault with a man God sent in your day. And the moment you find fault, you cannot rely on him again, you cannot depend on him, you cannot even trust him. Not knowing that every action of a man of God is God. God is behind every action of a man of God to fulfill His perfect will. It may not sink well with you, yet it is God’s eternal plan.
26.        Even if he goes about naked, God is behind it. Even if he hips prostitutes around himself, God is behind him. Even if he behaves like a mad man, God is behind him. There is an eternal purpose God want to fulfill. You are not called to come and argue with him.
27.        You are not called to come and correct him. You are called to believe. You are called to believe. Believing means confiding in him, depending on him, leaning on him, trusting in him.
28.        “God is able, abundantly able to deliver, to restore; my God is able, abundantly able, to deliver those who trust in Him”.
29.        Do you know that up till today among us are found people that trust on imaginary God? God that will reveal himself sometime maybe when they get to Heaven. I am telling you the truth. When references are made to God, they are having their eyes on the sky.
30.        Even the song we sing always said that some think that God’s meaning is of the sky, they do not know He is here and His voice was heard from above.
31.        Many do not believe when we say, “Christ is here”. They quote Bible, “Where two or three gather in my Name” and they could not see Him there live. Without faith, it is impossible for any man to please God. And faith means, holistically depending on Him, believing that without Him you can do nothing, for the help of man is vain.
32.        Can a man help himself? How? NOW, I HAVE OPENED IT, YOU ARE TO SEARCH MORE SCRIPTURES THAT WILL SHOW YOU WHAT HAPPENED IN THE WILDERNESS, WHAT HAPPENED EVEN AFTER AMONG THE APOSTLES. THERE WERE SOME APOSTLES THAT HELD ON TO THE TRUTH, PREACHED THE TRUTH AND AT THE END OF THE DAY, THEY MADE SHIPWRECK.
33.        THEY NEVER KNEW WHEN THE LORD VOWED AGAINST THEM THAT THEY WILL NEVER ENDURE TILL THE END. HE PLACED A STUMBLING BLOCK FOR THEM WHICH THEY COULD NOT CROSS OVER.
34.        Now, this God whose voice we have heard, I want to show you what He said. St Luke gospel chapter 12 verse 32. King James, Amplified. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.
35.        Have you seen the Father’s good pleasure which He purposed in Himself after the counsel of His own will before the world began? He went ahead preparing the Kingdom. But when He bid them to come, they could not. He gave them the Word intending to usher them into that rest, they heard it but they did not believe.
36.        They were paying lip service to it. Not even one was serious with it. Now, God is winding up His program with the whole world on once and for all basis, for the personality that those that were in the grave even from the time of Adam have been waiting for is here at last.
37.        At last, He is here. He sent His son, they killed him. He sent others, they killed them. Now, He has decided to come to round up the program, no more, no less.
38.        Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom!
39.         It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you His Kingdom. Before the world began, this has been His eternal purpose that you will dwell with Him eternally. He went ahead making preparations to receive His children. He gave His Word of restoration; they treated the Word with contempt by leaning on their own understanding.
40.        Now is our own day, we will be stupid to stop at quoting what happened before when we are at the threshold of being ushered in; and we have seen the manifestation of those traits that hindered people from making it resurfacing among us.
41.        We have seen signs of those evil traits resurging in our midst proving that many are not desiring Eternal Life with all their lives. No seriousness in their desires!
42.        We can see people leaning on themselves again, on their personal understanding, setting God aside. We can see people that make it without God arising from among us.
43.        God has to draw this warning again before the D-day. It is said that whosoever that died on the railway, died as a result of deafness. No smartness on this matter, no cunning, cunning.
44.        I told you that where we are heading to, nobody will know who has believed or not, what will prove everybody is already there.
45.        This is our Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom but due to our ignorance, we do not know the value of Eternal Life. We do not know what we shall benefit if we attain that height where we will not die again.
46.         No suffering, no death, no sickness, no sorrow, no pains, no accident, no fear, nothing to annoy, no enemy, nothing, nothing. We do not know what it takes to dwell together with God till eternity. We do not know what it takes to reign with God in righteousness.
47.        Anybody that loves committing crimes does not know the awful consequences of imprisonment or firing squad or jungle justice. Whoever that is conscious of imprisonment, firing squad, jungle justice does not indulge in crime. For if he continues, one or all will befall him one day. He might be escaping but one day, but one day will be the decider. Amen.

THE MYSTERY OF THE
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN (2)
Remember we are waiting for that one day. Let us go to the scriptures.
2.           YOU MAY ASK, “BROTHER, IF I WANT TO GIVE THIS TOPIC A NAME, WHAT WILL I GIVE IT?” TITLE IT: “THE MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN”. THE MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. DO NOT ALTER, DO NOT ADD. THIS IS THE TOPIC.
3.           IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THIS MYSTERY AS I UNVEIL IT HERE, IT SHALL BE WELL WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. BUT WHERE YOU FEIGN IGNORANT AND SET IT ASIDE, I WILL LAUGH YOU TO SCORN ON THAT DAY. NOT A DAY THAT IS COMING, THE DAY IS HERE WITH US ALREADY. WE ARE COUNTING IN WEEKS, WE ARE COUNTING IN HOURS. Amen.
4.           Let us go further. Gospel according to St Mathew chapter 22 verses 1 through 14, King James Version. And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain king,
5.           The Kingdom of what? Are we talking about the Kingdom of God now? Are we talking of the Church? The Church prepares you for the Kingdom of Heaven. If at the end of the day, you end it staying in the Church, you are the most miserable human being. Now that I have visited the mystery of the Kingdom of Heaven, do you not know the gate is about to be slammed open?
6.           All along it has been gate of God, gate of this and that. The gate is about to be opened, otherwise, the mystery of the Kingdom will not come out now.
7.           It is coming out to prepare a people that will enter. And that is why you see them that left long, long time ago flying back, for it has been revealed to them personally that something is about to happen. And they know what that thing is because they are a part of God. They are also a part of what God is doing.
8.           And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come…
9.           To call them that were bidden to the wedding. Those meant for the wedding super, those invited.
10.         And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready…
11.        He did not get the money from them. He made the provisions singlehandedly. Come and eat, is it come and die? It can only cause you faith to come for you know the personality that called you. You should not be ashamed to answer a call. 
12.        Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner…
13.        Brother Shed, are you paying attention? Okay.
14.        . Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it,…
15.        They made what? Light of it. They could not take it serious. Everybody left for their personal business. Hence, some could say, “We are coming; let us finish with our business for the day. No time is late”.
16.        Some will come in the morning, some in the afternoon, some others in the night. Whenever one remembers it, he will start coming. The likes of Apostle Kelechi and his group.
17.        But they made light of it, and went their ways, They went their ways. One to his farm, another to his merchandise…
18.        One to his farm, another to his merchandise. “Nna, let me finish selling my goods. I got a contract, let me go and finish the job first. This farm needs to be cultivated today”. That means that if the farm is not cultivated today, it will fly away.
19.        And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
20.         But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. 
21.        Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. 
22.        And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 
23.        Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.
24.        St. Luke chapter 14 verses 16 to 24. But Jesus said to him, A man was once giving a great supper and invited many; And at the hour for the supper he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, Come, for all is now ready. But they all alike began to make excuses and to beg off. The first said to him, I have bought a piece of land, and I have to go out and see it; I beg you, have me excused. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to examine and [e]put my approval on them; I beg you, have me excused. And another said, I have married a wife, and because of this I am unable to come. So the servant came and reported these [answers] to his master.
25.        Then the master of the house said in wrath to his servant, Go quickly into the [f]great streets and the small streets of the city and bring in here the poor and the disabled and the blind and the lame. And the servant [returning] said, Sir, what you have commanded me to do has been done, and yet there is room.
26.        And yet there is space for other people. Then the master said to the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges and urge and constrain [them] to yield and come in, so that my house may be filled. For I tell you, not one of those who were invited shall taste my supper.
27.        Pause a little. Who were the people around Him when He started giving this parable of the mystery of the Kingdom of Heaven? If you read your scriptures, you will discover that this thing was happening in the Upper Room. It was not an encounter between Jesus Christ and the world, Pharisees and Sadducees, the Scribes, no. It was an encounter between Him and His disciples.
28.        Notable, the Apostles, taking place in the Upper Room. And they were the people that were billed to come. They were the people that were given the invitation; they were the people to whom the Kingdom was prepared for. Even, it was finished before the world began. There was not even one without invitation card but when the hour came, all that came started giving different excuses.
29.        It was their excuse that prompted the man of the house to go out to the heathens, to those that were not intended to be saved, those that were written off, those that were not included in His salvation plan, go and compel them to come for my feast must surely hold.
30.        I must do as I have planned. Concerning these people that have started giving excuses, leave them alone. They will never, never be partakers of Eternal Life. WHAT DO YOU THINK PROMPTED THEM TO BE GIVING SUCH EXCUSES?
31.        NUMBER ONE IS OVER FAMILIARITY.
32.        NUMBER TWO, THEIR INABILITY TO TAKE HIM AT HIS WORD.
33.        NUMBER THREE, THEY COULD NOT DEPEND ON HIM, THEY NEVER LEANED ON HIM, THEY SET HIS WORD AT NAUGHT. SO, HIS WORD HAD NO PLACE IN THEM. THEY HAD NO FAITH IN HIM. DO NOT ASK ME, “IS IT I?”
34.        WHAT WILL ANSWER THIS QUESTION IS ALREADY WITH US. Remember when I told you that it will take the Almighty to come and decide the case between Chiwendu and wife, God Almighty and then Egbema case, did God disappoint anybody?
35.        What will decide is already here. The decider is here. That is why I gave you messages, “You must know your status in Christ. You must know your status in the Son of Man, for Christ is the Son of Man.”
36.        No man ever goeth to the Father if not through Me, for in Me is the Father revealed. I and My Father are one. I am in My father, My Father is in Me. I can of Myself do nothing but whatever He commands, that I will do. He that sent Me is still with Me. the Father has never left Me for I still do those things that please Him.”
37.        NOW YOU ARE THE FIRST FRUITS THAT OUGHT TO OCCUPY THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IN THIS GENERATION FOR UNTO YOU GOD FIRST APPEARED, UNTO YOU GOD FIRST REVEALED HIMSELF AND THE VOICE WENT FORTH FROM AMONG YOU, EVEN THE WORD THAT IS SHAKING THE HOUR.
38.        BY RIGHT, THE KINGDOM BELONGS TO YOU. IT IS YOUR FATHER’S GOOD PLEASURE TO GIVE YOU THE KINGDOM BUT YOU MAY NOT GET IT IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL.
39.        THERE SHOULD BE A LAST MINUTE REAWAKENING, SPIRITUAL REAWAKENING IN THE BRIDE OR ELSE SOMETHING TERRIBLE IS ABOUT TO TAKE PLACE. FOR THE FACT THAT YOU COULD SEE WHAT I TOLD YOU HAPPENING.
40.        THOSE YOU THOUGHT WERE OUT OF THE WAY, I TOLD YOU NOBODY HAS EVER ABANDONED THIS FAITH. THEY ARE STILL HERE. AT THE DYING MINUTE, YOU WILL SEE THEM FLYING IN. NOBODY WILL COMPEL THEM. BUT THERE WAS A STATEMENT, “THAT ANYONE THAT IS COMING, IS COMING TO REPLACE SOMEBODY”.
41.        Did you hear that? That is why you were told and enjoined to be careful lest another person takes your crown. If you are not careful, another person will take your crown, another person will take your seat. You forfeit your ticket, for there is no provision that “once saved is always saved,” even if you are found in unbelief.
42.         You heard it loud and clear that God can bless you in everything, He will never bless you in unbelief. Unbelief has remained the bane of all generations. Have you escaped it? it is not too far. It is not a big deal. The first fruit to whom the Kingdom is meant.
43.         For your sake, the Messiah was sent and you were bid to come and you promised you would come. You have been fully furnished, but the hour has come for us to decide, take our final decisions, excuse started coming. “I married a new wife,” “I want to marry one.” “My wife has put to bed a baby,” “My vehicle is in the wharf.” “I am laying a foundation for my building.” “I must open my house next week. Oh, it clashed with my program.” “Oh no, if I had not been engaged, I would have been there.” “My mother is sick.” “My mother is about to go to mortuary.” “My father died, we want to mourn him.” Many excuses are there.
44.        Some will use official work; that is your own farmland. There is nothing you will never use to excuse yourself out of the Kingdom of Heaven. The Devil is at work now to help you to excuse yourself out of the Kingdom of Heaven.
45.         For every excuse you want to give is a part of your problem. If God never listened to excuses before, will He start listening to your own? There is no reasonable excuse before God. You have said “no”, and “no” means ‘no”. 
46.        God can do without you. Even if you will refuse to worship Him, He said, He will command the stones, the grasses to worship Him. God can get mad people on the streets, good or bad.
47.        Fetch them, tell them, look at what I have prepared for them. And they came, there was space, He sent forth, “Go and fetch as many as you can that the whole place can be filled to capacity.
48.        The mystery of the Kingdom of Heaven. I will explain this message with time. Where I stop, events will help Me to finish up.
49.        St. Mathew’s gospel chapter 7 verses 21 through 23. Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord…
50.         Not everyone. A time came, He said, “You call Me Master and Lord. That is what I am. But if I be your Master and Lord, why don’t you obey Me? You call Me Master and Lord, that is what I am but My Words, you do not obey.
51.        For that reason, He gave them a message titled, “Obedience is better than sacrifice.” For no man can obtain God’s favour while living in disobedience. And no man has ever obtained God’s favour by living in disobedience.
52.        Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven;
53.        What are we discussing? Kingdom of Heaven and conditions for entering. Not Kingdom of God where you are.
54.        We are about to enter the inner court or the inner most court, the Holy of Holies where we shall reign forever and ever.
55.        Begin now to think of yourself. Do not look at your brother, do not look at your sister. Try to find yourself inside what I am saying. Whatever you are looking for is what you will see. If you are looking to see your brother, you will see your brother. If you are looking into the message to see yourself, you will see yourself. Not everyone that calls Me Lord, Lord will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
56.        “Daddy, daddy,” “Son of Man, Son of Man,” sing My praise, use My name to compose music, even buy the whole world and dash Me. If you like, present yourself to be burnt, all in the name of Daddy. Son of Man, I love you. Pay attention.
57.        Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in Heaven.
58.        He that doeth the will of My Father which is in Heaven. Where is Heaven? Are you not in Heavenly places? Is Christ not here? Have you not seen the Father? The will of the Father is revealed through the Son.
59.        I am a Son over My Father’s heritage. This is the will of God even your sanctification. This is the will of God that you should believe in Him whom He has sent. Believing in Him means confiding in Him, depending on Him, relying on Him, leaning on Him, trusting in Him which is the express ticket into paradise, for He is the only person God listens to.
60.        He is the well beloved Son in whom He is well pleased. Your duty is to hear ye Him. Is it not true? If for any reason, you are shaking your head, you are leaning on your own personal interpretation, glory be to God on your behalf. I wish you well. I wish you well.
61.        There is nothing you can offer Me now which has not been offered to Me. So, there is nothing you can do now to bribe Me away from the truth which nobody has ever attempted and succeeded. Many have attempted it and failed. How can you succeed?
62.         I am of age, I have seen more days. I am on the threshold of ushering people there. “My friend, go and see whether you can enter”. When you go to the bank, it does not require anybody to welcome you to the bank.
63.         The electronic door is there to accept you or reject you. You do not bribe the electronic door. Whatever will stop you from entering is already in there. You may have it without knowing. Even if they open it. That is the outer gate, you enter, the thing will not get to the end, you will be hearing a voice saying, “This man is not worthy to enter. This customer is not worthy to enter. Please, search this customer. Search this customer.” You will be wondering where the voice is coming from.
64.        Before you know it, the security people will tell you, “My friend, get out! Another person will enter, the thing will open. You jump the security, you enter the second time, the thing will say, “This man is not worthy to enter”.
65.        Everybody will be looking at you suspiciously as if you are carrying a time bomb. You will even be suspecting yourself. Little will you know that it is just your key. It can be your key. It can be a little stone that is attached to your shoe which crossed the sensory area.
66.         Not all that say unto Me Lord, Lord will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven but only those that will do the will of My Father which is in Heaven. You will do the will of My Father that sent Me. The will of the Father has been revealed to all of you.
67.        I have come to do My father’s will, and after the revelation of the will of My Father, I gave you one statement, “If there be any of My message you find difficult to obey, do not trouble yourself, watch the way I do it. Do it that same way.” That is what God demanded from all of us.
68.        I am the one the Father sealed and sent. For your sake, I have been here. If not for your salvation, I will not be here. There is nothing in this world that could have attracted My attention.
69.        I am here to fulfill the promise of My Father which said, “I am going to prepare a place for you, after which I will come and take you to Myself, that wherever I am, there you will be”.
70.        For if He refuses to come and take you, you will not know where He has prepared. You do not know where the thing is. If I tell you to show Me paradise, where can it be found? It will take somebody who came from there to take you there.
71.        It takes somebody who has prepared that house for you to usher you in there, for you do not know where He prepared for you. All you know is that a provision has been made. Where? You do not know.
72.        Many will say to me in that day…
73.        Many! Was He referring to the people outside? This thing was taking place also in the Upper Room that we are here now.
74.        Many will say to me that day, am I referring to those who do not know the truth? It is one who knows the truth.
75.        Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?
76.        It is not the controversy. Prophesying in His Name is very common. He has nothing against it, whether it came to pass or not. You prophesied in the name of God? Yes, it is okay.
77.        And in thy name have cast out Devils?
78.        In thy name, we delivered people from bondage of all sorts, cast out Devil.” Which means, they were with Him; they were thinking they believed in Him because those signs followed them.
79.        Misplaced faith. Faith that is placed on signs and wonders is a misplaced faith. For your faith to save you, it must rest on the Word of God and not on signs and wonders.
80.        Remember the message, “The misplaced Faith”. Many have misplaced their faith. We are espoused to the engrafted Word of God which is able to sanctify us and give us a place among those that are sanctified in the faith of Christ.
81.         That your faith be not placed in the Word of man but in the Word of God. The Word of God, the Word of God. And the Word of God is the name of God. God is in His Word. He does not operate outside His Word. Is it possible?
82.        Now, they have prophesied in His name, they have cast out demons in His name, performed miracles in His name. These people will come outlining their ministries, how effective they performed.
83.        He was referring to those who were His co-labourers, who placed their faith on all those nonsenses to the neglect of the weightier matter which is the Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
84.        They took delight in those areas that will make them friends of the world rather than friends of Christ. They wanted to be popular so that they will be known as prophets, prophetesses, miracle workers.
85.        Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out Devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works?
86.         Have I not told you, “In thy name,” all to get Him convinced that they were with Him.” But He knows those that are with Him and those that are merely playing pranks using authorities that were conferred on them to go and carry out those assignments. They attach salvation there. Salvation is not there.
87.        I CAN USE YOU AND DESTROY YOU AT THE END. AS LONG AS YOU ARE HERE HEARING ME, I HAVE THE CAPACITY TO USE YOU THE WAY I WANT.
88.        THERE IS NO WAY I CAN ALLOW YOU TO BE IDLE. I CAN ASSIGN A RESPONSIBILITY TO YOU THAT IS NOT EVEN ATTACHED TO YOUR SALVATION.
89.        And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you…
90.         I never knew you because you could not meet Me in the Word which is the meeting point between God and His people. They never met in the Word. They met carnally.
91.        And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
92.        Do what? Depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.
93.        Verse 24. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 
94.        And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
95.        Have you seen it? Was He referring to the outsiders? He was referring to those that were authorized, legally, that had the legitimate requirement to possess the Kingdom of their Father.  Amen.

THE MYSTERY OF THE
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN (2)
S
t Luke 13 verses 22 through 30, Amplified: [Jesus] journeyed on through towns and villages, teaching, and making His way toward Jerusalem. And someone asked Him, Lord, will only a few be saved…
2.           Will only a few be saved? What is your business with the number that will be saved? You want to know the number of people God will save. Is this a wise question? Master, will only a few be saved?
3.           Is it not a foolish question? If you are wise and intelligent, you should be concerned about yourself. If I must ask any question, I will ask Him, “Lord, will I be among those that will be saved? Please check whether my name is among the saved. If He tells you that it is there, you ask Him, please, can you permit Me to see it?”
4.           And someone as006Bed Him, Lord, will only a few be saved (rescued, delivered from the penalties of the last judgment,…
5.            The penalties of what? The last judgment.
6.           …and made partakers of the salvation by Christ)? And He said to them, Strive to enter by the narrow door [force yourselves through it]…
7.           Do what? Challenge yourself. IT IS NOT AS PLEASURABLE AS YOU THINK, EVEN AS WE ARE HERE NOW AT THE END. THERE ARE TOO MANY FORCES TO CONQUER. TOO MANY FORCES ARE ACTING ON ALL OF US distracting our attentions, weakening us, more especially when we see lawlessness everywhere which is causing the love of many to go down, even emanating from so called brethren. That is the most discouraging side.
8.            We are not talking about the world, whatever we see from them, we take. But why coming from among us? From the people we embrace, people we rely on, people we depend on, people we call our brothers and sisters disappointing us at the dying minute, failing us at the time when we need their help. That is the most disappointing area.
9.           You see why you must force yourself in. Ignore all those things for you do not know what they have in mind. You do not know whether they have come to the end of their journey.
10.         Not all that are here came for Eternal Life. What I am telling you is truth. If you came for Eternal Life, there is no instruction that will be very difficult for you to obey. Whoever that is quarrelling and complaining, murmuring has not come for Eternal Life.
11.        To him, the instruction from God is grievous, cumbersome, difficult. And if he wants to obey, he must obey grudgingly. He will be looking for fault here and there. He will wait until everybody has obeyed before he will obey. Sometimes, he will be quarrelling as if he is being forced to obey something he does not want to obey.
12.        Why? Because he never came for Eternal Life. He is being mandated to take it. You cannot force somebody to take Eternal Life. You have done all you are supposed to do by taking the horse to the river, but to force the horse to drink, Na lie.
13.        Strive to enter by the narrow door [force yourselves through it], for many, I tell you,…
14.        For many, I tell you, not few.
15.        …for many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able. When once the Master of the house gets up and closes the door…
16.         So, the door that is open can be closed. Once the master of the house rises and closes the door
17.        …and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door [again and again], saying, Lord, open to us! He will answer you, I do not know where [what household—certainly not Mine]
18.         I do not know what?
19.        I do not know where [what household—certainly not Mine]
20.        What household, whether Lagos or Onitsha, Enugu, Lafia, I do not know. Why not put your hands together for God. To show you that this person is not a stranger to the promise, he belongs to one household of God and has the Son of Man as his Lord and Master Who is vested with the Authority to judge the whole earth in righteousness, and He is here with you.
21.        Watch the way our Bishop Okechukwu Nwankpa opened, he said, “We are happy, we are privileged to have that Christ even here with us”. No preacher ever introduced the Son of Man more than him to the Bride; backed it up with scriptures and various quotes from William Branham.
22.        He is where he is because I decided to place him there. If I want him back, I will bring him now. Remember he is not wrestling with any flesh and blood; he is wrestling with God, for he challenged My authority.
23.        That is why I earlier announced everything that will happen to him before I dealt with him. Incorporated everything in writing, in tapes while he was sitting down.
24.        That I will make him look like a beast. I will anoint him with a spirit that will make him to behave rashly, do things he cannot imagine and will find it difficult to say, “I am sorry”. That I will cause something to happen to him that will make him to call Me a Devil.
25.        He was sitting down praying that nobody is above false anointing. At the appointed time, I did it. Before your eyes, made him mad; remove the spirit of God from him, evil spirit from God now torments him.
26.        God will say, “Depart from Me for I do not know you neither do I know the household you came from.”
27.        Have you seen why we gather from different local assemblies? And he said, “Force yourself through, break all the odds, challenge yourself”. I do not care what the force is like. Resist the Devil, resist the temptation, resist all his antics. Say “No”.
28.        He will answer you, I do not know where [what household—certainly not Mine] you come from.
29.        Certainly not My own household you come from. 
30.        Then you will begin to say, We ate and drank in Your presence,
31.        What? They will be establishing that they belong to the same household with Him. Hence, they could eat and drink with Him.
32.        As many of you as are privileged to be doing it with Me even now, eating and drinking with Me cannot give you the needed salvation. If that is what you are holding on and begin to label yourself the beloved of the Lord or Son of Man’s favourite, you are in hell and you are thinking you are in Heaven.
33.        For the Son of Man has made it clear that He has no favourite, He has no preference. He threats every man on equal basis.
34.        Whatever standard God has placed there before all of us, attempting the shortcuts makes your journey longer. The shortest cut is the route of obedience. Obedience to the truth, obedience to the revealed Word in your day is the shortest cut.
35.        That is the straightway. Perverting it makes your journey longer. You may not even reach your destination again. Then you will begin to say “Lord, Lord, Master please, we were with you, we ate and drank with you”.  
36.        Then you will begin to say, We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.
37.        You also preached in our street even in our own local assembly. 
38.        But He will say, I tell you, I do not know where [what household—certainly not Mine] you come from;…
39.         Because I have given you the doctrine of Christ as I received from Him on the unity of the body, that whatever you heard in Onitsha is what you heard over there.
40.        If you are building anything outside that which is already with us, I cannot recognize it. And as far as I have not recognized it, the Almighty can never recognize it. If I never confirmed it, who will confirm it?
41.        …depart from Me, all you wrongdoers!
42.        All you wrongdoers. Yet they were doing wrong and performing miracles, prophesying, preaching, eating and drinking with Him, yet doing wrong.
43.        If they come back, they will be sharing testimonies, “Daddy and I really toiled today. It was really great.” What was great? They ate and drank. “There is something Daddy said today.
44.        In fact, this man is too much. You remember, Daddy said I will escort Him somewhere. You know it is not an easy thing. That I will be the one to go with Him.
45.        Please, I do not want to be late, Daddy sent me on an errand and I will not allow day to break before I leave for it. It will be first thing tomorrow morning. If you were His wife, what will you be saying? What if you happen to be His children who are constantly with Him, what will be your testimony?
46.        Is there any way He can stay without the children being around Him? Yet, it is required of them to hear and obey Him in all things. For the Lord your God shall raise from among you one of you as His mouthpiece.
47.        It shall come to pass that if any does not hear and obey His Word, he shall be cut off from among His brethren. A scripture that fulfilled long, long time ago, the Elohim bearing witness. Does it require much consultation?
48.        Am I preaching that you accept Me? No, I am not. I do not seek anybody’s acceptance of the Son of Man. No. I am the Self-Existing One (Selah).
49.        I existed when you were not in existence. I sought you, I found you. You never sought Me. If you were asked to make a selection, you could not have selected Me. But those that were called refused. Were they called? Yes. But look at their attitudes.
50.        Am I referring to people inside the Ochanja market. I am talking to everybody here. I am talking to those that are afar. I am talking to all local assemblies because the gate is about to be slammed open.
51.        There is no better time the mystery of the Kingdom of Heaven shall be revealed to you if not now. And after the revelation of the mystery of this Kingdom of Heaven, conditions for entry, what else do you expect if not the experiment?
52.        There is nothing to expect again if not the experiment. To test whether I have taught you right or wrong, the gate will decide. In the beginning, I made it clear, I said, “Lord, if I have succeeded in placing this altar right, confirm it”.
53.        Before many witnesses, you saw what took place in 1993. The Elohim came with His supernatural myth and confirmed it. That I have succeeded in placing the altar right.
54.        …depart from Me, all you wrongdoers! There will be weeping and grinding of teeth when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the Kingdom of God, but you yourselves being cast forth (banished, driven away). And [people] will come from east and west,…
55.         Underline. Strangers will now come from the East, from the West, who never heard, “Repent or you Perish”. Who God never labored for. Who never traveled long distances to come here to worship God for one day. Who never passed through the ordeals you have been passing through since you first believed.
56.         Remember you were the one the Word of God first went to. Unto you God first appeared to take a people unto Himself. I am talking to the so called God’s own people. It is still some among you that will say, “Had I known”.
57.        It is still people here that will see people coming from the East and West, who never handled our publication, who never said ‘remain blessed’ getting saved.
58.         And [people] will come from east and west, and from north…
59.        Did it say brethren will come or saints will come? People.
60.        And [people] will come from east and west, and from north and south, and sit down (feast at table) in the Kingdom of God. And behold, there are some [now] last who will be first [then], and there are some [now] first who will be last [then].
61.        What are we treating? The Mystery of the Kingdom of Heaven. Somebody might be asking the question, “Daddy, why have you withheld this message all this while?”
62.        The time for it has not yet come. For there is no need revealing it to you when you have not come to that stage and that is where we are now. Nothing is left except this matter. We are not talking of foot washing or Holy Communion; we are not talking of any other thing. This is where we are now.
63.        I am not talking of God using fire or rainbow or flood to ravage the whole world, I am not talking of earthquake or war or pestilence or hardship, they have come to stay. And God is at work.
64.        Concerning Israel, it does not concern you. It is My exclusive reserve. Whatever I want to do with them is known to Me. you are not the people delaying it, they are the people because it is tied to time.
65.        Now, since I could come from the East to declare this mystery, what are you expecting from now? If I could come from the East to declare this to you first, what are you expecting?
66.        Won’t you know the calendar in the East? Only one thing remains in the East, one thing remains in the West. Amen.

THE MYSTERY OF THE
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN (3)
We go further to read scriptures. St. Mathew chapter 25 verses 1 through 13. Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins, Kingdom of what? Heaven is about to open and we will enter.
2.           Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins Note, ten what? Virgins. I do hear people saying, “Ten foolish virgins”. It is not scriptural.
3.           Ten virgins undefiled, pure, perfect, uncontaminated, holding onto the gospel of Christ without wavering until they arrived at the gate and the Master said, “Wait here until I come. Let your lamps remain burning”.
4.            And they said, “Amen”. They never fornicated with any denomination. Pure ten virgins. Virgins of the Word of God.
5.           Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
6.           Five were what? Wise. Five were foolish. Note what makes the wise, wise, what makes the foolish, foolish. Place yourself where you belong to. You can never sit on the fence on this matter. You cannot be wise and foolish at the same time. You must be either at any given time.
7.            They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them…
8.           They were nominal believers, nominal worshippers, empty, no virtue. Remember they followed from the very beginning without wavering but they were empty.
9.           They were barren, they were naked and they knew it not, but they were carrying oil with the wise ones who were filled with the Holy Spirit, who were renewing their minds every day.
10.        They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them…
11.        They thought they could be saved anyhow. 
12.        But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried…
13.         While the bridegroom stayed longer, they ran short of oil, they exhausted everything and became empty. “Nna, we are there already”.
14.        Leeyi (Anthony), where are you? “We are there already ooo.” People like him waiting with empty lantern. They are just empty vessels. They can never bear any reasonable fruit.
15.        Ministers, deacons, elders, everybody should be very careful. They were all in the fellowship making noise, calling Buhari. Mike Udor, are you hearing what I am saying? It is very, very important.
16.        There is an axe placed on every tree now. Because we are about to be crowned. We have come to the end of the essence of our suffering all these years. We are now waiting to be rewarded according to our labours.
17.         While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
18.        They did what? Slumbered and slept. You see what made them foolish. Instead of taking in the Word of God so as to renew the right spirit in them to remain spiritually alive, spiritually awake, they slumbered, they slept. They started behaving the way they like as if they have entered paradise.
19.        When you talk to anybody, he will tell you to leave him alone, that it does not mean anything. Leave me alone, at the end we will know”. You think that is a human being talking, you do not know that it is an empty vessel.  
20.        And at midnight there was a cry made…
21.         When it was not expected to happen, the thing struck. Behold, the bridegroom cometh.
22.        And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
23.        Go ye out to meet Him in the air. That is our meeting point.
24.        Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise…
25.        The foolish said unto the wise, not unto the Master. When those wise ones rose to meet the Master, the foolish stood and started asking for help. “Please, lend us some oil, we are empty”.
26.        Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
27.        Our lamps are gone down; it is empty, no more revival. “Please help us now! 
28.        But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.  And while they went to buy,…
29.         While they went to buy, it could have been better for them to stay just the way they were instead of straying away to get it at the dangerous hour. It is just like one preparing for exams. Immediately the question was served, he started turning the textbook to revise.
30.        And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready…
31.        They that were ready is My emphasis. They that were ready entered with Him.  
32.        And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
33.        The door was shut. Am I referring to those outside? Is it not people who started from the very beginning, pure and undefiled. Pure virgins.
34.        Where lies your claim that you will enter anyhow because I have called you My people, I will save, and then you begin to jump up. What the Church is composed of. The good and bad, and you begin to jump up.
35.        Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
36.        It was those that are still awake that were ushered in. Those that were absent was never recognized. 
37.        Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour…
38.        Watch therefore, you know neither the day nor the hour. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. Put your hands together. The Son of Man cometh means the time, the hour, the day He will make the proclamation which is the voice everybody is waiting for.
39.        You watch and pray. This people never entered again. They labored in vain, for they became foolish at a time they should be wise. Any lesson to learn? What will you give as your own excuse if you are trapped in this web? Read your own there.
40.        Matthew chapter 8 from verse 11 -12. I tell you, many will come from east and west, and will sit at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the Kingdom of Heaven, While the sons and heirs of the Kingdom…
41.        While the sons and heirs of the Kingdom will be denied of the Kingdom and you see strangers entering the Kingdom of Heaven. When you get home, meditate on it and see whether it is possible. A stubborn son can be there, and the father will use the maid to replace him. The man will place the servant in the position of the foolish son..
42.        While the sons and heirs of the Kingdom will be driven out into the darkness outside, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.
43.        Have you seen it? We are talking about the Kingdom of Heaven. We are not talking about the Kingdom of God where you are sitting down now. You have purchased your ticket by sitting down here but you have not entered where you belong.
44.         You are not in the plane until your name is in the manifest. Only names that are found in the manifest form the passengers in the plane.
45.        Mathew 25 from verse 32, King James Version.
46.        And before him shall be gathered all nations…
47.         Before who? He, the Lord shall be gathered all nations. Wherever the gospel of the Kingdom have been preached, people must come from there. For the end will not come until the Gospel of the Kingdom be preached throughout all the nations of the world and that has been accomplished by the Son of Man.
48.        For He is the Arch Angel that came with the everlasting gospel that has now encircled the whole earth and before Him shall be gathered people from all the nations and He will separate them into two distinct blocks, the sheep and the goat, place them where they rightly belong; right hand side, left hand side. Any side He places you determines your reward, determines your destiny. And you have to work to earn yourself a place either in the right hand or in the left hand.
49.        We are handling this type of message and deacon Vin is sharing biscuit. This man is an Hausa man. He is not in his right sense. He is not here with us. I am talking to him and he is pushing Me. He does not know where we are.
50.        Every true seed of God is sitting down here in fear. He is not even remembering that he has not taken a glass of water because where we are, I told you last week, is very precarious and very unpredictable. That this year is entirely another year meant for you and I. Where you will have face to face, personally practical encounter with God. And I gave you a wonderful feast ushering you into it.
51.        Today is My first appearance. If you are wise, My appearance today has opened the floor of how things will go. But a fool is sharing biscuit, trying to push Me aside so that he would pass. A senseless man!
52.        And before him shall be gathered all nations…
53.         Before Him shall be gathered all nations. God will judge the whole world in one day. In one day, He judged all the ages gone by. In our own day, He has set aside a day in the which He will judge the world in righteousness.
54.        It shall be one day known unto God and it can never over delay by a second, for the mouth of Lord has spoken and He documented it. Who can cancel it? Definitely, nobody.
55.        This is the time we ought to be serious. If there was a time we played to fool ourselves, that time is over. More so, when we now begin to see returnees in the camp
56.        I say, returnees in the camp, which was the sign He placed. “When we shall begin to see them flying back, that the next thing is to open the gate.” For all of us will enter at the same time.   
57.        And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father…
58.        Note: Come, ye blessed of My Father. You know what it takes for one to be on the right hand side of God. Do you know what it takes for somebody to say, “You are my right hand man; he is my right hand man”.
59.        Do you not know the meaning? Those that are privileged to be found at the right hand side are those that do the will of the Father. Those that are found in the left hand side are the renegades, rebellious people, stiff-necked people, intransigent, unprofitable, opposers of truth.
60.        Who did the separation? The Almighty. What did He use? He sent forth His Word and His Word did the separation. For God’s Word calls for total separation from unbelief. From the Word of God, we know those that obey God and those that obey Him not. Those that will be claiming to be one thing or the other.
61.        Many are running the race, only one will win the trophy. It must take a group to win the trophy. Whoever that comes first in a relay race justifies all that ran on that track.
62.        And this Faith is a relay race which started in the wilderness. This is our turn and we are presenting the baton. We are running last and we are coming first. That is why the Son of Man appeared to gather the loose ends and return the original baton.
63.         That is why we are holding the original Faith, producing original life. “Original life, original faith, original Word is what I believe. The Son of Man is revealed, the seventh seal in unveiled, the original life, the original Faith”.
64.        This is the right Faith, no mistake about it. Go out now, people will be astonished that there could be a people sitting down here from morning till now. They will be asking, “What are they hearing? Who is teaching them? Will they finish it one day? Going to Church does not end.
65.        Do they know what we are doing? Do they know what is going on? But to us, we are not feeling it. My Lord has been good to Me so I feel like traveling on. We are holding that old time religion. It is good for us.
66.        There is no other people that can sit down here hearing His Word from morning till now without murmuring, Oh no, no, no without complaining. Something holding you is greater than you, mightier than you.
67.        It is only in you that the Word has come to pass, “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God”. We do not remember where we came from.
68.        Verse 34: Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom…
69.        Do what? Inherit the Kingdom.
70.        …prepared for you from the foundation of the world…
71.        Prepared for you from when? The foundation of the world, which was referred to in the book of Hebrews. Somebody must inherit it. Somebody. God prepared it not in vain. Somebody must inherit it. I am equally there.
72.         If you know your stand, if you know your status, you say with Me, “I am there, I am one of them. I am one of them” unless nobody will be there. If there shall be somebody there na me. “If e no bi me, na who God go bless ooh. If e no bi me, na who God go bless ooh.”
73.        You have to strive at all times. Force yourself and find yourself at the right hand side of God. Even in our song: “We are able to go up and get that city…….. though the giants maybe on our way to hinder, God will surely give us victory. Only move on to the right hand side, move on to the right hand side, move on to the right hand side of God. Halleluiah, move on to the right hand side, move on to the right hand side, move on to the right hand side of God.”
74.        A time came when fishermen like Peter, James and John toiled all the night till morning, they got no fish. They were tired, they were about to pack home, because they were leaning on their own understanding.
75.        The Master asked them to continue, they said, “No, we have toiled everywhere, throughout the night and we have got nothing. We stayed awake throughout the night.”
76.        The Master said, “Peter, I know you are about to pack home, you have been toiling since and you toiled in vain simply because you leaned on your own expertise, your own experiences as a fisherman. Now, cast your net on the right hand side.”
77.        Peter said, “Master, at thy Word”. What happened? There is something in the right hand side of God. The Bible called it, the right hand side of power, the right hand side of majesty.
78.        You know what it takes to be Her Royal Majesty, His Royal Majesty, you are in the right hand side.
79.        He said that those that were found at last on the right hand side of God who were found doing His will, entered into the Kingdom of Heaven prepared for you. Inherit it for your Father prepared it for you from the foundation of the world. Though it eluded some, some are going to be there.
80.        Verse 35:  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me:
81.         I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? Or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 
82.        When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? Or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
83.         And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
84.        And I say unto you, there is not even an iota of your labour of love in Christ that shall go unrewarded. For God who knoweth all things, searches the hearts of all, He knows all your ways; He knows all your heart desires and will reward every one of you according as your works shall be, whether they be good or bad. With these few encouraging Words, I have opened this year.
85.        Walk with wisdom and you will not regret indeed. Wisdom demands that you shun the wrong and do the right. On this note, I say thank you and remain blessed in Him eternally. Amen.
