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

ONCE YOU ARE IN CHRIST YOU ARE A BRAND NEW INDIVIDUAL WITHIN VOL 1


Preached on Sunday, 20th July, 2014 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE SUPREME INTELLIGENCE” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE
GOD’S VICTORY
Remain blessed everybody. Today is My day. Yes! I travelled far. I was exiled from home. I am back. Anybody that worships here or anybody that is in one
way or the other acquainted with the Son of Man who never noticed that the Son of Man travelled far for two months now, that person is spiritually blind.
2.           I travelled far. I went to hell and came back alive. It is grace, it is amazing. You were fellowshipping with the shadows of the Son of Man and you knew it not. Most of you that were privileged to be in My vehicle for two months, let Me tell you, a shadow of the Son of Man was your driver.
3.           It got to a point where I was almost scared from handling the steering on the highway. It was indeed a battle of battles. But I never kept quiet before some people.
4.           As many as used to come to My house regularly, they must have observed that a time came when I became abnormally dumb.
5.           The Son of Man that loves talking from morning till night with the brethren became abnormally dumb. The Son of Man who usually drinks with the brethren each time they came around abstained from every kind of drink and restricted Himself to His personal gin.
6.           Let Me just tell you that for two months, I have just been admiring the brethren as one that was passing away. I did everything to halt it; It became so much. The more I tried to make Myself happy, the more I failed.
7.           Instead of relaxing and being happy, I became extra-ordinarily hostile to Myself, to all, to nature. My appetite snapped. When it became too much on Me, I opened up to My wife say, “Darling, for some weeks now, I am feeling an aura of death around Me.” She became apprehensive.
8.           Before I knew it, My movement changed. I became sluggish. My strength was sapped. I tried to eat, no way. I forced it in, no way.
9.           But if I should tell My children what I was passing through, I will instil fear in them. But to admit and die quietly in the bed, I said, “No, I am not going anywhere. This is not the Father’s will but an enemy’s.”
10.        Too many enemies touched Me at the same time. I was trying to grapple with the problem, then, physical problem came. And they came in a flood. They just came in a flood. Every passing day, one.
11.        Another day, another one. Until they piled to the point where I said, “What is the essence of life?” I nearly yielded to the wishes of My foes.
12.        But when I remembered the blasphemy, I said, “Not now Lord.” For if I have agreed, too many would have jubilated.
13.        I said, “No. Let not My enemies triumph over Me. Though they come in thousands, with your strength, I will overcome.”
14.        As many as went to Lagos with Me will notice that I was not in Lagos. I did not go to the wedding with you. My shadow went to Lagos. The joy was not there. The joy that normally accompanies one that is privileged to witness the wedding of his daughter was not with Me.
15.        No matter how comfortable they tried to make the environment, I felt uncomfortable. I sensed it and I selected two tested brothers who could understand the handwriting to follow Me. Namely; Brother Onyema Eze and Brother Loveday.
16.        I equally told Brother Onyema Eze, “Wherever I am, make sure you are there.” I preferred staying outside to stay inside the house barefooted. Not that I wanted it that way. No!
17.        A little while, I hated everybody and preferred to stay alone without anybody nearing Me. I cannot stand here to tell whether I ate in Lagos or not.
18.         Even the walnut Brother Ojiakor bought for Me followed Me down to Onitsha. I was not Myself. The drinks were there but I tasted nothing but water.
19.        I mounted the pulpit to save the situation not that I wanted to be there. For I had earlier announced to Brother Ojiakor My weakness that he should be there. But when I saw the crowd, I saw the way the whole thing was heading to, I was compelled to rescue the pulpit.
20.        It was an impromptu address to everybody which yielded dividends. Dividends in the sense that, although some protested, about 85 per cent welcomed the Message. And they are requesting for the tapes.
21.        They have been calling Me. They have been calling Pastor Rotimi and many others requesting for the tapes of the message. And many other packages from us. Especially their ministers and their wives.
22.        The Deeper Life woman that interacted with Pastor Emmanuel called Me. Pastor Emmanuel gave her My phone number. She said, “Daddy, if there have been a time I came across a man of God, it was during your daughter’s wedding. But are you the real father – I mean biologically?”
23.        I said, “Yes ma.” She said, “But you are too young to be the father. When I saw your wife, I thought she was the sister.”
24.        I said, “She is the mother.” She said, “Daddy, please, do me a favour. Do not only send that Message, send many other Messages.”
25.        I said, “Madam, Deeper Life people do not read other messages from other groups.” She said, “Daddy, hear me. I do not belong to Deeper Life, I belong to Christ.” I said, “Thank you very much. You will get copies soon.”
26.        She asked, “How soon?” I said, “I cannot predict. I have to consult with the publication unit.” She said, “Okay. Once it gets to Brother Rotimi, I  will just go there and get it.”
27.        You see, I really thank God that we never wasted our time there. From that day we came back until today, nobody has ever seen Me on the pulpit sharing testimonies of the wedding. Even appreciating the presence of the brethren.
28.        Some might be thinking that the Son of Man might be very ungrateful. No! I am not. I was already inside My grave; making frantic effort to climb out. I hated everything. My consolation remains one thing: That I have eternal life. But talk of forces; the forces were acting from within and without.
29.        The climax came on a sanitation day. Voluntarily in appreciation, I gave the people that worked with Me a drink which they drank. But I carelessly placed the bottle.
30.        This is My popular drink I am known for that. I took only two shots but vomited almost a bucket of water when I had not taken any food. Neither have I taken My usual tea. After vomiting, I fainted. That was the genesis of My problem.
31.        When I recovered a little, I told My wife what took place, that I should be blamed. I was careless. From there, the trouble started. I remembered I have been telling brethren that it is not yet death, but God wanted to teach Me a lesson.
32.        I remember I told you, “Love your enemies but whenever they are around, do not wink your eyes. Do not blink.” But I blinked. I paid the price. That was where the floodgate opened.
33.        I continued managing My health, trusting God that I will recover. You know, anywhere I go, I am always the target of attack, because I can never go to any place without somebody being liberated. For that reason, the enemy is always on My throat trailing Me.
34.        I gathered courage. The wedding day was fast approaching. In spite of My infirmities, I continued anyhow. I always prayed on the highway. I would not tell you other things that took place within. How many times I collapsed even in My office.
35.        How many times I rested? More than four times, before I could get to My house at the first floor because it was very much on Me. I managed with Okada that took Me to My yard, crossed the gutter, sat down on the steps. I could not raise alarm.
36.        As many that called Me during that period complained bitterly: “Daddy, is there anything wrong? Your Voice is not clear at all. Your voice is telling us that something is wrong.” Even My daughters, My children in the school, they were over worried.
37.        In that My bed in the parlour, that is the cushion I converted to My bed, I resorted to that place. But one funny thing was there. Each time I found Myself there, to wake up becomes very difficult. I will be wide awake ooh. To pick something on the ground, no strength.
38.        I continued. Whenever I get to bed, My eyes will remain awake. My wife might be thinking that I was sleeping. By the time I could sleep, it might be early hours of the morning. And once I sleep, I will be in another world. I diagnosed typhoid, I diagnosed malaria. All to no avail.
39.        I continued praying. But the worst happened when I travelled home during the burial of our late relation (an old woman) at home. I weighed Myself. I could not drive. I decided to go with a public conveyance. I got home safely.
40.        Because of the enormous crowd I saw, I decided to make a provision for Sister IK to go to market, joined hands with My sisters to prepare food for our visitors. I gave her the list plus money.
41.        While I was coming out from the house, these mucus on the cement floor; the greenish ones were there. But I saw some dried ones. I thought that those ones had already dried off, that that could be the passage they were using to come to the house. Thank God sister was a little far away.
42.        While I was trying to step out from the place to go to the corner and see the bereaved family; a compound away from My own there in the same place; immediately My two feet touched that place, the thing lifted Me up. My two legs went up.
43.        Our sister shouted. Brother IK’s children shouted. I fell with the back of My head. My full weight on the ground.
44.        To get up, the thing pushed Me until I reached the door. I managed to get up with the help of the Sister. It took Me about ten minutes to regain balance.
45.        The saving grace was that, the back of My head fell just few inches away from the iron rail, few inches away. Then, our sister used broom to remove those things, I managed to go back. I changed My dress.
46.        To walk become very difficult. I got a serious dislocation on My ankle. Still there even till now. It is over two months now. My waist shifted. Chest pain, back pain, headache, everywhere. I was completely disorganised.
47.        In the night, the pain became so much. I had to call My wife. I said, “Darling, please pray for Me. I resurrected from the dead.” She was wondering what took place. I was only waiting for the corpse to be interred.
48.        The following morning, I left for Onitsha in the cramped-up bus that was more horrible than the accident I had. I managed to come home. That was at the peak of the preparation for Lagos.
49.        The following Tuesday, My wife and the elderly ones left for Lagos, leaving Me and the smaller ones to complete whatever that was left. There were too many things we could not procure before she left. I took over.
50.        Thank God for My children. They cooperated with Me very well. As I was buying those items, My son Chukwudi was coming with Okada to carry them. So we continued. The Lord helped us.
51.        From that time, you know what it will take somebody who was having that type of pains to travel from Onitsha to Lagos.
52.        In spite of the pains, the traffic jam we met on our way made matters worse. You see, to and fro, I was not with Myself.
53.        I continued praying, trusting God. But I thank Him immensely that one morning like that; I was earnestly desiring divine healing. I was lively. While I was meditating, I saw two scriptures written: Psalms 35 and Psalms 91.
54.        I noted the two scriptures and rushed to the parlour immediately. I invited My family members and said, “Please, this has become a challenge. Look at My experience at these early hours of this morning.”
55.        And we are to read these scriptures. We used these scriptures in our daily prayers from that Tuesday morning until Saturday morning when we would round off. I also told them that Sunday is going to be a Sunday of testimony to the glory of God.
56.         They said, “Amen.” Before then, My wife gave herself over to prayers for she noticed what was happening. But she did not know where to place it.
57.        My children noticed it but did not know how to interpret it. I could not speak until I was sure of the victory.
58.        WHAT IS THE ESSENCE OF TESTIFYING TODAY AND DYING TOMORROW? We continued.
59.        We intensified our prayers in the family. Claiming prayers that were made by father David in his own time of distress, for his throne is to endure to all generations.
60.        And that is the Throne the Almighty will stay and judge the world. And the Root and Offspring of David is here.
61.        We made the prayers not only for ourselves but for the entire elect of God for six days, non-stop.
62.        Finally, we called it off. It is not that we have stopped praying. We pray every day. But it was a special programme. The more we prayed, the brighter the day became. We continued seeing changes until yesterday.
63.        I could not suppress it again. I opened up. Nobody has ever heard My voice sounding like a bell like this. And I have never for one day since that time lifted up a bucket of water without slumping.
64.        TODAY IS A DAY OF TESTIMONY THAT THE LORD WHO PERMITTED EVERYTHING TO HAPPEN HAS TAKEN FULL CONTROL. AND TODAY, I ANNOUNCE THE VICTORY GOD GAVE TO ME AND TO MY FAMILY.
65.        You can imagine a situation where from time to time My wife would shake My body in the bed as if she is shaking a log to know whether I am still breathing.
66.        And before her hand left Me, I will speak a little, “I am aware.” So, we really thank God. Amen.

look at the promise and the source of the promise

WE HAVE OUR DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES. THERE IS NO CHILD OF GOD THAT WILL NEVER COME TO A POINT WHERE HE WILL MEET DEATH FACE TO FACE, WHERE HE WILL HAVE HIS TESTIMONY THAT IF IT HAD NOT BEEN THE LORD, THAT HE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE LAND OF THE DEAD.
2.           Thus, I BELIEVE THAT WHATEVER YOUR TROUBLE MIGHT BE, WHATEVER THE SICKNESS MIGHT BE, THAT THE GOD WHOM YOU HAVE BELIEVED, WHOM YOU HAVE TRUSTED IN IS GREATER THAN WHAT YOU ARE PASSING THROUGH, IF ONLY YOU CAN PUT YOUR FAITH AND CONFIDENCE IN HIM.
3.           THERE IS NO TROUBLE, THERE IS NO CONDITION, AND THERE IS NO SICKNESS WHICH GOD CANNOT HANDLE EFFECTIVELY.
4.           I got a testimony which My son read for Me. It came in a text from Brother Austin Lagos. Good news! His wife delivered a bouncing baby boy last week according to My Word. Remember the testimony we are sharing is coming from one that was declared barren by all medical doctors. By one whose womb was about to be evacuated because she was bleeding continuously for three consecutive years.
5.           There is no hospital in Lagos that never attempted it, including Teaching Hospital at Enugu. LUTH tried at Ide-Araba.
6.           Our brother’s in-laws in America volunteered to take her so that he could marry another wife. But the Son of Man told them clearly that they should be patient with Him that before their eyes and My eyes, they will do family planning. That they will come to Me and tell Me it is enough: “Daddy, help us, we do not want more children.” They said, “Amen.”
7.           Immediately the voice went forth during Apostle Monday’s wedding, the bleeding intensified. Remember, this marriage has lasted for almost eleven years. No issue. Before their eyes, God brushed aside whatever they called, “Uterine fibroid.”
8.           Uterine fibroid remained there. The sister conceived and gave birth to a baby girl. Uterine fibroid remained there. She conceived and gave birth to a baby boy. Uterine fibroid will remain there and she will begin family planning.
9.           You see, I want you to understand one thing. You call it fibroid. It is your tissue. It does not come from outside. It is a part of your body, your flesh and muscle. It is a matter of placing it where it came from. There is no other thing.
10.        It is not a sickness somebody could contact from outside. This is a development in your body system. He that formed the body will only do one thing. The overlapping or over growths, He will press them like that, they will stick where they belong to. Finish!
11.        You see, the idea of cutting it off, doing this, that is human idea— Scientific idea. And the moment it is done, it becomes yours truly. No more! The expectation are completely dashed.
12.        I resisted the operation vehemently. And I was sure of the Word that went forth of My mouth. When they came down to Me at Onitsha, I joined hands with My wife to comfort them. I said, “The same way you go, with your eyes, you will see your baby, you will carry this baby the same way to this family.” And it fulfilled.
13.        By the time I instructed her to go and buy baby’s wears, she wept sore for there was no sign that such a miracle could take place.
14.        Do not look at YOURSELF. do not look at your condition. look at the promise and the source of the promise.
15.        On that fateful day when I had earlier told them to go and prepare themselves; that was My promise in Lagos. “Go and get ready for My cow. Madam, go and deliver. You are delivering a baby boy. I have already told your husband. Prepare My cow.” They laughed.
16.        That same day I spoke to them, the following day, labour started. They went to hospital. They called Me. I said, “No, this is false labour. She will not deliver this time.”
17.        After some hours, the doctor came, examine her and told her to go, that it is early sign of labour. But this time around, he called Me early hours of the morning and I commanded them to go to hospital.
18.        Mid day, they called me again. They said, “Daddy, the doctor came, after thorough examination, the doctor said they will like to induce the delivery.”
19.        I said, “For what? The expected date    of delivery is 18th. I do not subscribe to that. This is still 17th; we still have another 24 hours. That is not enough.
20.        “Take note of what I want to say now. The easiest way of delivery is CAESAREAN operation. By that system, a clever doctor can deliver up to ten babies in one day. But natural way can last up to two months while waiting.
21.        And no doctor takes interest in such waiting. So, hear Me very well. The second reason is this: Caesarean Session (CS) fetches them more money than natural delivery. They do not even consider the disadvantages.
22.        One, they do not even remember that the patient could die or the baby could die. They decree that one out. Their eyes are on the money. Secondly: They do not know that by doing it, they have disorganised the family programme. That the woman will stay longer before the next baby could be expected.”
23.        I said, “Brother Austin, tell the doctor that you consulted your elder brother who is more qualified than him. But there is no way he could come to Lagos. That I said he should be patient with your wife. He should not try anything inducement at all.”
24.        “I know what he wants to do. Once he administers Pitocin® (a hormone that induces labour), he will begin to monitor the breath rate of the baby by palpitation.
25.        The moment the breath changes, one way to theatre. For he would not like to be blamed for losing the life of the mother and the baby. And this is the reason everybody will accept.
26.        Now, I want to show you a mystery. The Gender of the baby that is coming forth determines the rate of contraction. If it is a female baby, the contraction will be sluggish and steady.
27.        If it is a male child, the contraction erratic. It will come; a little while, it will stop entirely as if contraction is not taking place again.
28.        A little while it will start and become very slow. Before you know it, it will snap. Wait for it. The third time it will come, it comes vigorously. Less than three minutes, you will hear the cry of the baby.”
29.        He said, “Okay sir.” Go and tell him. It was a lecture that afternoon. My customers were still there. They heard Me and what took place. A little while I switched to Brother Ojiakor. We discussed concerning the case I was handling.
30.        Immediately I dropped the phone, My phone rang again. It was Brother Austin. He said, “Daddy, praise be to Your Name. My wife has delivered. In less than ten minutes, the contraction that stopped, everything about inducing the baby ended.
31.        What is the testimony I got this morning? Brother Austin wrote a testimony and I got it this morning. He wrote it probably yesterday. He said, “Daddy, I lack words. To you belongeth the victory and honour and everything.” See what happened in the labour room.
32.        The doctor and the nurses came to induce the delivery. My wife said, “No.” The doctor was shocked and said, “Madam why?”
33.        She said, “My God has spoken that I am delivering without this inducement. And that I should wait for my baby.”
34.        The doctor asked, “Who is your God?” She said, “My husband spoke with my God right now.”
35.        The doctor laughed, turned to the nurses and said, “Look at! This woman is mad. You mean the person that your husband phone now? We heard them discuss. Is He the one you are calling your God?” She said, “Yes!”
36.        The doctor was about to go out. Before his eyes, the head of the baby came out. He turned to the nurses and asked them to rush, “Rush, rush!” Everything was hastily completed. The man stood back, looked at our sister, looked at the baby and shook his head. Turned to the nurse and said, “Mysteries will not end.”
37.        The heathens boast with their gods which do not answer prayers. We boast with the great Jehovah, the only one and true God. The only living God. The only God that can hear and answer prayers.
38.        For the scripture made it clear that the entire world bring their prayers and supplications to God because they believe He answers prayers.
39.        So, that prayer-answering God will remain My God till eternity. If God has spoken, all you need to do is to say, Amen. I do not need to begin to talk. You see this baby here, she will remain a testimony.
40.        See the baby here. She has started schooling. This is the daughter of Brother Pascal. Delivered in one of the best hospitals in Enugu. Examined in Enugu Teaching Hospital, that is Park Lane and other places.
41.        Nobody believes that this baby would live. But God said, “She will live and she will be a testimony to the glory of God.”
42.        Why am I sharing this testimony? I have a case like that in My house. I remember how it started. What was the problem of the baby? She was born with hollow in her heart. A case that we read in the newspapers almost every week.
43.        You see the general public making appeal for fund to enable parents of such cases take their children abroad for heart surgery which has yielded no result. Hole in the heart of the child. Doctors tried, but no way.
44.        All the reports; Brother Pascal has all of them with his wife. You can go and verify. When they brought her here and those reports, I knew they were all correct. But I was looking away from the reports.
45.        My eyes were fixed on God’s promises that said, “I am He that healeth thee.” I called them never to put their trust in their physician, otherwise, they would become like King Asa who trusted in his physician instead of God and he died.
46.        THE GREAT PHYSICIAN IS IN OUR MIDST. HE HEALS INTRACTABLE DISEASES. IF ANY SICKNESS HAS DEFIED ALL MEDICAL SOLUTIONS, BRING THAT CASE TO GOD WHO SPECIALISES IN HEALING CASES THAT IS ABOVE REMEDY. THAT IS WHY WE WORSHIP HIM LAVISHLY, AS MANY AS HAVE THE REVELATION OF WHO HE IS.
47.        The reason why your case lingers too long is as a result of doubt and hypocrisy. For a hypocrite receiveth nothing from God. He that doubts is a double-minded fellow and he receives nothing from God.
48.        If you can believe doubting nothing, all things are possible to them that believe. When you believe, faith in you will begin to work immediately. You will look away from the trouble. Even if people come to you mentioning it, you will reply with what God had already said.
49.        See Brother Ben Okezue. See Brother James at Aba who has his own certificate written, “It will take miracle from God.” All our doctors in our midst examined him. Abia State University Teaching Hospital examined him. Living Word Hospital, Aba, examined him before he went to Orlu Imo State University Teaching Hospital in his hometown.
50.        He was thoroughly examined. Federal Medical Centre Owerri examined and their reports were the same. But today, it is a testimony. I say, it is a testimony to the glory of God the Father.
51.        Just like this baby, the Lord blocked the hole in the heart. And the baby is alive and kicking. When I was encouraging the family before I gave them My own panacea which does not cost money; what it cost is exercising faith. Living faith. No more, no less.
52.        I brought the case of My own son Chibuikem. Chibuikem, stand up there. Look at this case. He was born with hollow in the heart. When we took him to General Hospital, the doctors confirmed it. Sit down.
53.        We looked up and looked down, My wife wanted to weep. I said, “Weep not, we are serving a living God. I am not interested in what they are saying. My interest is in what God has already proclaimed.”
54.        I said, “Look, My father never buried any of his kids until he died. Up till today, we are still complete. As long as God lives and I live, I will not bury any of My children. I will not bury My wife.” I anchored there. And the Lord healed the hollow in the heart.
55.        Then, another sickness that has no name came that wiped off all infants born within that year here in Onitsha. My own uncle lost his first daughter. A terrible sickness that had no name. Defied all medical solutions. It forms a sort of ring in the body of the child.
56.        Once the ring starts from the abdomen, it extends to the backside. The moment the rings joins together, the child will die. General Hospital was filled with corpses of infants.
57.        The same sickness attacked this boy. He turned black. The body started peeling off. We took him here and there. Finally, we laid him on the bare floor. That was the sickness that taught him that God uses Olive Oil.
58.        Each time death came closest to carry him, he will simply cry, “Daddy, Olive Oil. Olive Oil.” Olive Oil became his food, his pomade, his water, his everything. And with that Olive Oil, with prayers, he came back to life. So, to God be the glory. Amen.

Once you belong to Christ, you are a brand new individual within



We share testimonies of something that really took place. We do not exaggerate. What is the essence of the testimonies? They overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimonies.

2.           I do not know what your own case might be. I do not care the way your doctors have seen your case, described your case. Sometimes, they will tell you, “It is hopelessly hopeless.” But has God said so? Say no to your doctor and agree with God. And a change will come.

3.           Few of you are still living witnesses where an Indian doctor wanted Me to pay him so that he will kill My wife. After thorough examination of everything, having gone to so many hospitals, they said the end will be Niger Foundation, Enugu. We went there.

4.           The different tests and everything boiled down to one thing: that they must operate her for the gallbladder stone. I said, “Gallbladder stone?” They said, “Yes.”

5.            I said, “Okay, Mr. Doctor, please, with your experience in India and in Nigeria, tell Me the chances of success.”

6.           He said, “Absolutely, zero point one percent (0.1%).” I said, “Okay, thank you very much.” Let Me go and think about it. The person that directed us there had already volunteered money. I said, “No, we came with enough.”

7.           Because I told My wife before we went there: “Hold the money just to show you that hamoney is not a problem.” See who is holding the money which could pay doctor to kill her. I would not hold that money. Then, I invited My in-Laws and addressed them. With sorrow, I drove down to Enugu. We completed everything and paid them for their services.

8.           Then, they said we should go and deposit the money. I turned to My wife, “up to you.” She wept. The person that led us there wept.

9.           They said there was no other option than that. I said, “Shut up your mouth. Darling, if you will agree with Me, we will go and think about it. And I will not still sleep in Enugu today. If I will sleep, I will be persuaded contrary to My wish. I do not want to discuss with any being. Let us go.”

10.        We rushed back. Packed everything back to the vehicle, left for Onitsha. We did not open up until we got to Oji River.  There was silence in the vehicle, from Enugu to Oji River.

11.        When we got to Oji River, I soft-pedalled. Took the slow moving lane. Turned to her, “Darling, what do you think about this matter? I have allowed you to recover from the shock from Enugu till this place. Are you of the opinion that you will go for this operation?” She said, “Daddy, I am in your hands. Whatever you say on this matter, it is final.”

12.        I said, “Okay! If I speak on this matter, will you believe?” She said, “Yes!” I said, “Thank you very much. As long as God lives and I live, I will not give My fellow human being money to kill my wife. Since he has said that you will not live beyond three years, it then means, it is useless. You are not going for this operation. The Lord whom we serve must take control. Off your eyes and your mind. I do not care how severe the pains might be.”

13.        We got home. I began to enquire from Indian doctors, French doctors. Here in Onitsha, I went to Toronto Hospital. Two Indian doctors were there. I told them My experiences, they said, “Do not try it. Look at, look at, look at.”

14.        I went to Best Hospitals, met a French doctor, he said, “We have not recorded any success on that. But if Doctor Lakodia feels he can do it and bring her out alive from the theatre, up to him. But my advice is, manage your wife yourself.”

15.        I said, “Thank you sir.” I went to My master and he called somebody in America who is now late. The person who suffered it, who wanted to help us to procure the drugs we will use to manage it told us that the thing come in batches. And it will take pharmacies to get it.

16.        He mentioned thousands in Dollars. Over two hundred and fifty thousand Dollars for one batch. So, I said, okay, no problem. Money is not the remedy.

17.        I came back, told My wife that people travel to America and came back in caskets. Prominent doctors die. Pharmacists die. Even their nurses. If those medicines are reliable, they would not have died.

18.        I said, “Let us trust God.” I consecrated a bottle of Olive Oil, handed it over to her. We intensified our prayers looking up to God. Gradually, gradually, one morning, she woke up from the bed, turned sideways.

19.        It was like a mighty wind came and swept everything away. From that day, the regular night vigil we observed stopped. If you do not like night vigil, pray that your family members will remain healthy at all times. One whose house is on fire does not hunt rats.

20.        We give God the glory. I am trying to highlight one out of the million cases the Lord had already taken control. It is only in this faith; who will believe our report that we could see God taking care of cancer? Even prostate cancer. I mean prostatitis that is cancerous. God wiped off.

21.        If you are having a hereditary problem, it is still lingering there because you have not decided to break the heredity. You have not decided to use your own machete or knife to severe yourself from that linEage So that the genes will no longer be transferrable. Those that are transferred already will begin to die for new ones to come up.

22.        Once you belong to Christ, you are a brand new individual within. Your blood has become the blood of Christ. Your lineage, the linage of Christ. Everything Christ!

23.        If sickness comes, it is another one that is coming to you because that one is for you. It is no longer the one that is being transferred from your parents to you. Otherwise, they will transfer their idolatry to you.

24.        The same way you say no to their idolatrous practices, say no to everything that is associated with their lineage. Use your mouth and break it. Use your heart and reject it. You do not know what I am saying.

25.        If you come from Idemili, and you are not hiding in Christ, you have not broken the old barrier. The old spirit, the old gene, they are all in you. If you dare desecrate their land by killing their so called python, you will die.

26.        Even if the people do not kill you, that which your people believe which has become their custom and tradition will attack you and you will die.

27.        But because you have severed yourself, you do not belong to them again, the sign is that, you will begin to pull down their altars.

28.        A sign that you have separated; You will begin to condemn their practices, their traditions, their culture, everything. You have severed yourself. Your blood is now purified. You now have the blood of Christ. You have the mind of Christ because from that day, you are now living in Christ.

29.        In Him you live, in Him you move, in Him you draw your nourishment, in Him you draw your healing, in Him you draw your strength, your power, everything! In Him you exercise your liberty.

30.        That was why I was attacking Brother Sam yesterday night. I said, “You do not even believe that your parents are still heathens. Be very careful. What will kill you will come from your home town.” The only race you run to safety is that which you run without looking back.

31.        When God called Abraham, He told him, ”Come out from your people, your kindred, your this and that. Go to the land I am going to show you. And this is what I am going to do...

32.        A sure sign that you have separated, you have pulled out, you are no longer sitting on the same bench with them, you can now overturn the bench. You can never sit down on a bench and lift it up.

33.        It is when you come out you can throw it away. Pull down their altars, pull down their shrine, pull down anything that they are exalting contrary. Whatever they are exalting against the truth, against Christ, you must pull it down! A sure sign that you have divorce yourself from that thing and its influences.

34.        That is why Brother Mike and family are alive till today including many of us! If I am coughing today, it is My own cough. It cannot be the one that is inherent in My family. No!

35.        I BELONG TO A NEW FAMILY. I BELONG TO THE FAMILY OF GOD. I AM A MEMBER OF GOD’S OWN FAMILY. HE IS MY FATHER, HE IS MY MOTHER, HE IS MY BROTHER, HE IS MY SISTER, HE IS MY ALL AND ALL.

36.        HOW CAN I DRAW MY NOURISHMENT FROM CHRIST, LIVE IN HIM, MOVE IN HIM, EXERCISE MY LIBERTY IN HIM AND THEN STILL HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH HEREDITY. THAT IS RUBBISH!

37.        MY INHERITANCE, MY HEREDITY IS NOW IN CHRIST AND CHRIST ALONE. YOU MUST KNOW WHY WHAT AFFECTS YOUR PEOPLE IS STILL AFFECTING YOU TILL TODAY.

38.        IT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT FULLY SEPARATED. YOUR HEART HAS NOT REJECTED THEIR CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS, THEIR DEVILISH PRACTICES. AND WHATEVER THEY ARE SUFFERING IS AS A RESULT OF THE GOD THEY ARE WORSHIPPING. AM I MAKING SENSE AT ALL?

39.        So, that is why you must know the day you are saved from that rubbish. The day you separated fully must be written on the table of your heart. It is not something that is prone to scrutiny. Let the whole world come against you, not even one will succeed.

40.        Look at Brother Osegbo. The villagers ganged up against him because he killed the forbidden snake. Look at him. He is still alive. Before their eyes, he killed more and encouraged one to take one to make pepper soup. The other one used his own to make suya.

41.        The villagers gathered. The elders gathered and decreed him out. He said, “Praise God.” Unless you are ejected, Christ will not meet you.

42.        It was when the blind Bartimaeus was pushed out of the synagogue that Christ met him. Is it not true? While he remained with the people with his blindness, Christ never met him. But immediately they decreed him out, Christ met him. And there was a separation at once.

43.        So please, if you are in this Faith boasting that what killed your father is what you are suffering, what killed your mother, what killed your elder brother, killed your elder sister, that means you are the next victim. You have already proclaimed it with your mouth that you are not surprised the thing is attacking you.

44.        Thus, get ready to die. Go and buy your casket. Pay advance for your ambulance. Pay advance for your mortuary bill because death has come. Sell off your property. Enjoy your money while you are still alive because you are already dead.

45.        A child of God, whenever he comes into contact with that type of rubbish with the heathens; you know heathens are miserable comforters. When they come your way, they will begin to point you to places they know that will be against your Faith so that what is pursuing you will catch you quickly.

46.        LET US BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL BRETHREN. I DO NOT BELIEVE A SEED OF GOD IS SUFFERING FROM HEREDITY PROBLEM. I DO NOT BELIEVE IN THAT.

47.        WHATEVER I WILL SUFFER WILL BE THAT WHICH IS COMMON WITH GOD AND HIS PEOPLE, FOR I AM NOW A PECULIAR PERSON, A CALL OUT PERSON, A MEMBER OF GOD’S OWN FAMILY, WITH MY BLOOD PURIFIED.

48.        EVERYTHING AROUND ME HAS BECOME NEW. I AM NOW ONE OF THE ATTRIBUTES OF THE DEITY. THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST KNOW. AND THIS IS TRUTH. FROM THIS TRUTH, VICTORY COMES. VICTORY COMES FROM THIS TRUTH.

49.        WHENEVER THEY ARE TALKING THAT WAY AROUND YOU, OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND SAY, “IT IS NOT MY PORTION. I BELONG TO CHRIST AND CHRIST ALONE. THINGS WILL HAPPEN TO ME THE WAY GOD WANTS, NOT THE WAY IT HAPPENS TO YOU.

50.        MY CASE IS DIFFERENT FOR I AM A PECULIAR PERSON; WONDERFULLY MADE. WHEN GOD SEVERED HIS PEOPLE FROM THE LAND OF BONDAGE, HE SEVERED THEM FROM HEREDITARY PROBLEMS.

51.        He said, “...If you hear My voice and obey Me, I will never permit the sicknesses and diseases that attacked the heathens to ever attack you...”

52.        YOU WILL HAVE YOUR OWN CASE AS A DIFFERENT CASE. SICKNESS THAT WILL ATTACK THEM IN THE MORNING AND THEY WILL DIE IN THE AFTERNOON. THEY WILL COME AND YOU TRAMPLE THEM ON YOUR FOOT. YOU GO YOUR WAY. THIS IS TRUE!

53.        There was a case we saw at the General Hospital some years back, a very pathetic case. A young man, come and see the legs. Swollen! What happened? They said, “He was stung by scorpion.”

54.        We saw another one. They said scorpion stung her while she was farming. Come and see the man, almost rotten. See the man’s leg. Scorpion! But Brother IK picked the thing with his hands several times. Used his barefoot to march on another one; while many of us slept on the thing. Before morning, we saw the scorpion dead. He said, “You must recognize who you are.”

55.        Recognize who you are and what you are made up of. The material God used in making you is not a mere physical material. It is spiritual material.

56.        That is why in all our battles, in all our battles, we recognize the power on the spot. For the battle is spiritual not physical. And the instrument for warfare is also spiritual. Mighty through God.

57.        Let Me tell you, there is no sickness without a germ. The moment the germ dies, the sickness stops. Who inflicts that germ into that body? The devil! The devil! That is why when you speak to that sickness, the power of the spoken word will first of all kill the germ, recovery will now begin. Amen.

Recognize who you are

We thank God for the victory. We equally thank and glorify the Name of the Lord that He has blessed us with another nice Honda Jeep. It is presented to Me this morning from our Brother Sam ‘Beer.

2.           Brother Sam Beer, stand up there let us see you. That is Sam beer from Nsukka. I love this brother because he behaves like late Brother Stephen of Egbema. The two behave alike. Once they hear a word from the Son of Man, that settles the problem. They prefer to go beyond it instead of not doing it at all.

3.           I remember the word he heard from My mouth in Lagos. It was after My meeting in Lagos, I looked at them including Brother Simeon and two other brothers from Opi. Emeka and Onyeka. Two of them were riding okada in Lagos. One is Emeka. He has now graduated.

4.           I brought them back and sent them to school. He has finished his school certificate. He enlisted at College of Agriculture, Imo State, which is now a Polytechnic. He has graduated. I am sure of that.

5.           Anybody from Opi here? Don’t you know who I am referring to? He has a junior brother. Nwabueze! I saw their sister in Lagos who was lamenting when I ordered them home.

6.           There is a way you can over stay your usefulness in a city. Once your tenure in a city expires, make a change. Do not insist you must remain there, come what may.

7.           I met them riding Okada and they assisted Me during that period in Lagos. But I told them I hated Okada business. They were too young to indulge into that nonsense.

8.           I enquired about their academic attainment and I was told that they stopped midway. I commanded them to go with Me. I called father Abraham to assist him to enrol him to the school.

9.           From JSS 3, he continued until he finished his school certificate. He purchased a form and sat for JAMB. Now, he has become a graduate. Okada, bye-bye. Something he could not have attained, if he had remained in Lagos. I brought this boy, Sam.

10.        I say, “My friend, you are a small boy. If I should leave you in Lagos, you will be nothing. Let us go. We are going to the East. Where are you from?” He said, “Delta State. Iselle-ukwu.” I said, “Okay, I know the place very well.

11.        I brought him down to Onitsha. I allowed him to settle down with Pastor Thomas in Onitsha to enable Me make good arrangements for him. He stayed with us here. No brother, no sister compelled him. His parents never knew that he was here with us.

12.        Then, I began to enquire. With twenty thousand naira he was holding, I sent him to Nsukka, to Ezemachiri’s house. I commanded him to use the twenty thousand naira, get one wheel barrow, buy all kinds of cosmetics and begin to push the thing into the market.

13.        He believed Me and went to Nsukka. He knew nobody. Bishop Ezemachiri housed him. He purchased wheel barrow, purchased the items and began to push the thing about.

14.        He continued in the business for about two years. He came to Onitsha and told Me a little he gathered. I said, “Okay, no problem.” You will not continue again. Switch over. I want you to begin to sell beer.

15.        He said, “Retail or wholesale?” I said, “Sell the two. Both retail and wholesale. But begin to sell anyhow.” He agreed.

16.        Do you know that up till this very moment I am talking to you, I have never used My eyes to see his shop? I have not stepped into his shop for one day. He has not pointed Me to the place for one day. Though he has been venturing, doing that, I said, “No, not yet,” because I made a solemn promise.

17.        The day his parents came to thank Me, I told them to go back. His brother-in-law, the elder sister, the mother.

18.        It got to a point where the elder sister’s son was misbehaving. The entire family brought him to My house. We continued managing ourselves. It got to another point, I called him, I said, “Look! That promise I gave you will not materialise unless you enlarge your coast. Look for a pick up.”

19.        He said, “Eh?” I said, “Buy a pick-up van.” He accepted. He bought a pick-up van and began to enter the villages. Before we knew it, God started opening avenues. People that were in the business before him started showing him favour.

20.        One day he came to Me and said that one man like this, brewery like this, Enugu 9th mile. I said, “Are you interested?” He said, “Yes sir.” I said, “Go.”

21.        I went further, “Brother Sam, look at My target, I will not speak until you have offloaded trailer load of beer. Any day you offload it and it is your own, invite My attention. And I will tell you the next level.”

22.        We continued. He bought another pick-up van. I condemned that pick-up van. Pick-up 504. And that pick-up van gave him trouble.

23.        Before we knew it, the Lord helped him, he purchased a new one. I said, “The time has come for you to load the trailer.” With the help of Mike Udoh, he loaded the first trailer. He loaded second. He loaded the third. I said, “Okay! Fine! The time has come. The time has come.”

24.        We are not talking about his marriage. He is blessed with about four children. Am I right? He said, “Yes.” Good! How many years from Lagos down here? How many years?

25.        I do not know where he is living at Nsukka. I have not stepped My feet into his house for one day. Though he has been requesting. I told him I am having My eyes at something.

26.        But it will not materialise until something is done. I said, “Until you are appointed a distributor by any of these breweries, I will not rest. Keep on enlarging your coast.”

27.        When the time came, I told him clearly, “The stage is set. One, you will not present your baby to Me with Bishop Moses’ bus. And I would not like you to be coming to fellowship only on the days Bishop Moses or any other person will carry you. Now, think about it.

28.        “I have heard you. Do not ask Me where the money is coming from. You are going to buy a Honda Jeep. CRV. And make sure it is 2004 model. For that is the reigning thing.”

29.        He said, “Daddy, where will I get the money?” I said, “Do not ask Me this question again. The money will come.” We calmed down a little. The money came actually. Thieves came also.

30.        I told him to forget about the thieves. “Look at what you will do. And that man who is spare-heading it will be your best friend and will be protecting your business for you.”

31.        He did it and gave the testimony. That even if he gets home now that that man will be number one to enter his jeep. His greatest enemy has become his best friend.

32.        WHEN YOUR WAYS PLEASED THE LORD, HE PROMISED TO GRANT YOU THE FAVOUR OF YOUR ENEMIES. I told him he must dedicate his baby with a new brand Honda Jeep. And I will live to collect the key from him.

33.        While we were doing that, a property came out in their home town. For I have earlier warned him never to own any property in this eastern zone. If you want to own property, it should be across the Niger. And the thing sank deep in his heart. He resisted all the pressures. When the property came out, the Lord provided the money.

34.        I have a Deed of Assignment (DoA). He thought of the promise of the jeep will not materials seeing that the baby they were about to dedicate is coming of age.

35.        The Lord who knows how to keep His word, provided the money. He told Me he will like to rush there Tuesday with the money and Brethren will help him to get this and that.

36.        I said, “sshhh, I do not want it that way.” Let us go for the wedding. At the end of the day, we would go back. At your own convenient time, go back to Lagos. Brethren will be in a relaxed mood to take you round so that you will get exactly what you need and not what you want. He agreed.

37.        On that day, he appealed to Me and left. I called brethren in Lagos, when he got there, they suggested that he should call Brother Kennedy who knows every part of Tincan Island. And the report reached Me. Look at the report there. So, when we dismiss, you can see the report.

38.        When they were coming back yesterday, they would have been here before 2 O’clock. There was a problem on the way. They called Me. So, I continued monitoring and I kept calling until I looked at the time and I said, “No! Cases abound where dealers of vehicles in Lagos and even here in Onitsha send people to go and snatch vehicle that people have bought.”

39.        I said, “Okay! They have noticed that the vehicle is coming to Onitsha and it is becoming late. Let Me fool all of them, peradventure they are following him. Or they are waiting in front. I will fool all of them.”

40.        I changed the plan. I considered it. It was almost twenty minutes to eight and I gave instruction: “Don’t bring the vehicle to Onitsha. Stop at Eselle-Ukwu Junction and veer off to your hometown. When you get to your home, park it before your elder sister.

41.        “Tomorrow morning being Sunday, all of you should come down to Onitsha. If you cross that junction en-route Onitsha, they will take it from you and cross the bridge because it has no identification number.”

42.        They obeyed as they have been obeying. There he slept. This morning, they brought it before Me. Handed the key over to Me.

43.        Hear Me very well. In the days of Apostle John, as recorded in the Book of first John or second. He said, “I wish that my children in the Lord will prosper materially even as they prosper spiritually.”

44.        AND I GAVE YOU MY OWN INTERPRETATION OF WHAT IT TAKES FOR A MAN TO BE BALANCED. HE MUST STAND BY HIS TWO LEGS. THE MATERIAL LEG AND THE SPIRITUAL LEG. IF ONE IS MISSING, THE PERSON MUST BE DANGLING. A ONE-LEGGED PERSON DOES NOT LAY CLAIM TO BEING BALANCED EVEN WHEN PUSHED.

45.        thus, when you are prospering spiritually, the Lord never said you will be denIED of things that will help you for your material existence.

46.        That was why I gave you motivational messages. And I told you, “no salvation is attached to motivational messages. But I decided to hand them over to you for your material existence.

47.        Having secured your spiritual life, it behoves on ME to also secure your material existence. While you are waiting for your immortal bodies, you need all these necessities of life.

48.        For a family that is up to four, five, six, a vehicle has become a necessity. If not for any other thing but for coming to fellowship.

49.        ThIS reduceS the burden to the barest minimum. It reduces also the risk of entering into dangerous vehicles with dangerous persons. Because the best driver that will drive you is yourself. Am I making sense? Yes sir!

50.        Even if you own two, it is not yet a luxury. You own three; it is not yet a luxury. But when you begin to parade seven, eight, nine, ten, that will be lying fallow, it becomes a luxury.

51.        If you own two or three, it is understandable because all of them cannot break down at the same time. If one breaks down, you can park it and begin to manage with the other. Am I making sense?

52.        Remember that a vehicle that is used in running a business is a commercial vehicle. It is a part of the productive venture. It is not a family vehicle. You have no family vehicle until you have purchased one that is dedicated to the running of the affairs of the family only.

53.        The one that is helping you to go to work, bring you back, carry food items to market again, it is a commercial vehicle. I call it economic vehicle. It is not a private car. So, you must differentiate between these two.

54.        If you are using your private car for other duties, the truth is that, you will wear it down. you may not have enough fund to maintain it. At the end of the day, you may end it using ukwu-i-ukwu. I hope I am making sense?

55.        If you have a vehicle that is dedicated to your family, I show you a sign. For many months, unless you are careless like Myself, you will only be changing oil. No maintenance because it is serving the purpose. But when you want to use it foolishly or to make guy, your guy na your money.

56.        You want to go to toilet, you carry it. You want to drink, you carry it. You want food items, everything, you carry it waving your hand because you want people to know that you are a car owner. Na your money! You cannot eat your cake and have it.

57.        The way you use your vehicle will determine the way it will serve you. What is your purpose of purchasing your vehicle? Is the purpose being achieved? These are great questions you must answer.

58.        Let nobody ever become another Brother Ojiakor who commercialised all his cars to the point that there is no one that is even dedicated to the wife. If you must have one, it is okay. It is for your work. One for your wife. It is for her work and domestic activities. One, private!

59.        Your duty is to warm it every morning. It is a ceremonial car. The only duty it serves is to carry the whole family to fellowship to and fro. Another one is to carry the family to attend some ceremonies that require the presence of the entire family. Another purpose is to show class where class is needed. No more, no less. Amen.
