WHAT TIME IS IT CHURCH?


THE NTRODUCTION, VOLUME 1 Preached on 20th March, 1998 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE
WHAT TIME IS IT Church? (1)
What time is it Church? This matter is as clear as the day! What a pitiable condition we are
in! The whole religious societies in the world have fornicated with her.
2.           What time are we in? Let Me just show you what is going on now. You will know what is happening.
3.           Do you know that Roman Catholic has completely removed the name “Christ”? In all their Churches now, they have replaced Jesus with Pope. Maybe you have not heard it?
4.           You know, I am living very close to Block Rosary gathering! All their songs, they say “Pope.” All their songs! Where they cannot put pope, they put Virgin Mary: “A virtuous mother, good mother,” this and that.
5.           Now, Onitsha women will go out and pray this night. That means, something great is happening. At that Holy Trinity, it was highly impossible for people not to be there. There is something we are sharing. There is something we are giving out to people.
6.           What do you think? It is another way of bowing down. The Pope, this man has exalted himself above all things. And now, to those people, they are the ruler of the whole world.
7.           There was a time Jesus the Christ said, “The ruler of this world is coming but he has no part in me.” He is actually coming but he has not part in me.
8.           Chinelo, have you seen where your heart has been going to? You cannot know more Catholicism than the pope. Can you? I say that you cannot know catholic practices more than the pope. You cannot be more Catholic than the pope.  
9.           Can a man be more Catholic than the pope? You can’t be more Anglican than the Arch Bishop of Canterbury. The matter is as clear as the day. No wonder nobody can be more godly than Christ. The way you are shouting, you are making a hell of noise.
10.        If we have no respect for you because of where you are heading to, are we afraid of you? Who are you? I am now here to capture the Son of Perdition. Read your Bible. The son of perdition was referred to Judas.
11.        The Son of Perdition is one who allowed himself to be entered into by Satan. Satan entered into Judas. Judas became Satan’s incarnate. Judas became Satan in the form of a human being. Jesus the Christ called him the Son of Perdition.
12.        Another Son of Perdition is the antichrist whom the Lord will destroy with the sword of His mouth. Not with bullet. And you know the Sword. You know what sword is? Coming out of His mouth? Not physical sword but the WORD.
13.        Just like the angel who will carry long trumpet in his mouth and will be flying all over the world blowing in the air.
14.        Such preaching is only fit for ignorant people or children. Like Paul Nweke was telling his members recently. One young man was talking.
15.        He said, “The man told us that they have seen the beast. He has human face with long tail like dragon. The tail is full of scorpion. The tail has eyes.”
16.        Look at what somebody is teaching. Yet, he was the same one that told them that the Mark of the Beast is computer. That it has 666.
17.        That led to My neighbour to return one packet of sugar they bought.  It had 666 on it. The wife ordered the husband to return it saying it is the Mark of the Beast. People are blind! Today, it is no longer computer; it is dragon with long tail having scorpions with eyes.
18.        Dragon means nothing but power. Lion means nothing but authority. Lion is a symbol. Beast means a man without human reasoning.
19.         There is a way a human being will behave, you call him a beast. Somebody who behave very rashly and senselessly. An irrational human being is a beast. Don’t look at monkey and chimpanzee.
20.        I will show you scriptures but let us look into the society we are in. But why did this man choose Nigeria as his place of visit towards the end of the year or the age, why has he chosen Nigeria?
21.        Why not another nation? What is good in Nigeria? What is attracting him to Nigeria? Nigeria is the giant of Africa. He knows what he is doing. He has been to Togo, he has been to Nairobi too. Today it is Nigeria.
22.        Why not go to Egypt? Didn’t he see Libya, Sudan? I mean, trouble zones! Why is he avoiding there? Has he not brought Muslims into WCC? He should go and move them. Because he knows all Muslims are Roman Catholics. He has no problem with them again because they have been one from the very beginning.  
23.        I will keep on telling you this story until I go back to the Bible. Then there, we look into certain things.  
24.        If we do not gather this day, we may not have the opportunity to gather here again. So why we have the time, let us mean business.
25.        Why is this man coming to Nigeria at this time? Who has escaped from his hand? Who has escaped from the hand of this man? You know people think worshipping him means bringing fowl and goat.
26.        Do you know that our Head of States has started worshipping the man? Do you know that all the Head of States, presidents, prime Ministers in the world are worshipping this man? What did you give God that made God severe you from this man?
27.        You see why God’s anger is always hot? That upon all people that are on earth, you are the only people God called His own. And that is why He can never live to see you fornicate with any group.
28.        God can never live seeing any of us fornicating with any group. I don’t care the name of that group.
29.        Watch what happened that day. They were making their preparation and we are also making our own preparation.
30.        Unfortunately our book didn’t come out before the man came. I was thinking the book could have been circulated. Many forces acted on the book. Even till this night, we have not printed that book.
31.        Satan went to the people that are typesetting it and they lost interest in the job. One barrister ran mad there yesterday with brother Onyema concerning all we are writing. But God took control of everything.
32.        Whether he comes and goes away or not, the publication will still be in print. But I know it will not save anybody. Many have already taken their mark and it is impossible to wipe off the mark.  Amen.

THE REVELATION OF THE BEAST (1)
Let Me read some scriptures concerning the man. I will still come back.
2.           Revelation 13 verse 1- “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
3.           And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
4.           And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
5.           And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies;…”
6.           If you go into the Acts of the Apostles, there was a man that was worshipped like this. One day, he was trying to make research whether the promised Messiah had come. Who was the man? Herod! That man was a beast also.
7.           I say before God, he was a beast. Jesus the Christ called him a fox. Is a fox not a beast? It is a beast!
8.           I want you to come closer to the revelation of that beast. All the animals God used in describing the man’s deeds or his stature, those animals are lower, lower animals.
9.            They are all beasts. Leopard, dragon and so on, they are all beasts. And you know what “sea” is all about. Sea means multitude of people.
10.         And he was wounded. And it was rumoured that the man has died. A little while, he lived. And people wondered.
11.        There is no place in the history of the world that the pope is being shot more than this. No pope in the history of mankind has received gunshots more than this present pope.
12.        I want to show you something as we continue. I will show you one beast that rose up alone and did great havoc to the Church of God. Although he died, he still came back again. And that beast was Caesar Nero.  
13.        He rose up in the days of the popes. There has never been any time blood was shed in the Christendom more than the day of the Pope.
14.        Caesar Nero gave power to the pope because he was the power behind the states. The states backed the Roman Inquisition. The Bible said that the Church used the power of the states to exterminate Christians in Rome, Italy, France and Spain. Ejected them from their homes and replaced them with known Catholics.
15.        Caesar Nero is not alive but the spirit is very much alive. For nobody can speak against Karol J. Wojtyla, which is John Paul II. John Paul II is the present Caesar Nero. The first beast that came from Rome was Caesar Nero.
16.        You will see the second beast also. They have the same spirit of the first beast.
17.        And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
18.        And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindred’s, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him,…”
19.        Shall! Future tense! He was given power over all nations, tongues and kindred. Brethren, is it not fulfilling to the letter? All shall worship him.
20.        “…And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
21.        If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him,…”
22.        Did you notice what is happening here? I told you that the first beast that rose out of Rome was Caesar Nero and his target was to wear all the saints of God out.
23.        Look at the second beast; it is now coming with the nature of the lamb. He didn’t come perfectly like Caesar Nero. He came like a lamb. Nobody was able to detect him.
24.        The Bible said, “He begins to exercise the same power, having the same spirit like the first beast.” 
25.        “…And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
26.        And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
27.        And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
28.        And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
29.        Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man;”
30.        Count! From history, we could trace that Caesar Nero whose number was 666: “Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast for it is the number of a man.” The Bible said, “Count.” In other words, arithmetic is involved.
31.        If you read it in Amplified, it says “calculate the numerical number.” Calculate! We have to sit down and do the arithmetic. Whatever it gives you, you will know the person by that thing. And it is no other person but the man referred to as the VICAR (OF CHRIST). You know him very well.
32.        In Catholic canon law, a vicar is the representative of any ecclesiastic entity. It says, they worship him as God. He takes all the honour due to God. He goes about claiming to be the Almighty. They say he is coming from heaven and they will receive him at Oba in Anambra State. But we thank God they are not seeing him. He is god to the world.  
33.        We have our God. Tonight is our night. The same way we are sitting down here, so the Cathedral at Holy Trinity has been filled for the past three weeks by day and by night. Light has never die off there. All filling stations in Onitsha, by now are no longer selling fuel.
34.        Go there, they will tell you that Roman Catholic has paid in advance. What will you do? You go away. They are in control. Rome is in control. The only people they are not controlling are the Bride.   Amen.

THE REVELATION OF THE BEAST (2)
Revelation 17 verse 1 “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, come here; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2.           With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast,…”
3.           You know what woman is?
4.           “…So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy,…”
5.           Full of names of blasphemy. That woman is full of names of blasphemy. That woman is no other woman but Roman Catholic. She is full of names of blasphemy. If you have known Roman Catholic doctrine, happy are you. When you hear in the prayer, what you will be hearing is blasphemous names.
6.           That woman is full names of blasphemy. You can hardly hear Christ in their mouth. To them, they are rating the mother even higher. They have not given one-tenth of the worship to Joseph. But I thank God it is not the Blessed Virgin Mary but Roman Catholic Virgin Mary.
7.           That woman is full of blasphemy. From all the scriptures in the Bible you see Roman Catholic is fitting in. I am not talking of their Basilica.
8.           Do you know that Basilica is the city of seven hills? How many knows that? Before they call it Basilica, it was called the city on the seven hills before it was ever called Basilica. I will nail this thing down so much until real enmity is between them and Sister Chinaza. She is the only person that is creating confusion and she doesn’t have sufficient reasons for that.
9.           Because if she has sufficient reason, your mind can never go back there anymore; because Rome is the home of idolatry. Check all Pentecostals, they have joined. To show you they have joined, if you go to main market, what is the general worship?
10.        Everybody in the Main Market worship Virgin Mary. If you are keeping quiet, are you not joining? A type of prayer, nobody will talk. You are just going about. You have joined!
11.        Is it not because of that prayer you stopped doing what you are doing? Because the thing is becoming a big thing in the main market. It is becoming a daily practice.
12.        For in the day of the prayer, you use microphone. Roman Catholic will pray, everybody will say amen. This time around, they clap hands and sing praise. Main market is closed all, in the name of Jesus.
13.        “…So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
14.        And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:…”   
15.        If you want to see golden thing, go to Holy Trinity. You want to see precious stones, go there. I am telling you the truth. Roman Catholic, there is one they normally carry when they make it like this, the bell will make grin. All heads bow.
16.        When we were there, there is one they called precious stone. They said they built it like golden cup; they used to cover it with white cloth. They said it contains late bones of saints. When they will be moving, the man will be carrying the thing. Somebody will carry bell and ring it grin, grin.
17.        Every kind of idolatrous practice! There is one they used to carry, well decorated, an idol. If you look all, there is none of their practices you can find in the Bible.
18.        In other words, Roman Catholic has turned the whole world upside down. The whole world has become idolaters because of Roman Catholic. And they can never compromise. But the Church went further to compromise.
19.        When Anglican was leaving Roman Catholic, they introduced the Creed. They introduced chaplet (prayer beads). They didn’t drop all their practices. They carry Bible, preach Bible but remained there. It is a horrible thing!
20.        They made it compulsory that everyone must buy their cloth. If you are a reverend father in Roman Catholic, you must buy their cloth. You are a mother; you must buy their cloth. They are all together.
21.        While they are at new market road, they go to market. If you don’t buy it, you are not going to Church on Sunday to see the pope because the pope is celebrating mother’s day. Mother’s day celebration will be on Sunday. All of them are going to see the pope.
22.        Let Me tell you, the world is in trouble! There is a system now that is coming but it is taking time. Every attempt is aiming at decreeing out the Word of God. And people are following them.
23.        See the way young, young men, young, young women, the other day they were moving and I was heading somewhere. I never knew that the so-called D.P.O was there, where they were having vigil.
24.        They will be there till day break. There is no place where you will never see something going on there without some activities. Full of activities. That place is a place of fools of all fools.  
25.        I will say something. I am not preaching; we are just reading scriptures. “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
26.        And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
27.        And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus:…”
28.        Drunken! Tell Me, since the history of mankind, whether there has been any group, any religious group that have spilled the blood of the saints since the world began. I am using “since the world began.” They are ready to kill at all times. What we are saying here, we dare not say it out there.
29.        Because their own religion permits them to kill. But our own doesn’t permit us to kill. She is drunk with the blood of the saints – martyrs. Blood intoxicate them. Blood intoxicates them like wine.  
30.        Somebody who fabricated a bomb and killed over 6 million Jews, is he afraid of blood again? Killing has become his way of life. I mean as a human being, if you look at his face, check his age, not younger than Jesus Christ.
31.        Then, the question arise, what did this man do that warranted him to be killed? Because I was asking the question the other time, do you know what I was told? That he spearheaded the spreading of Roman Catholicism in the riverine area. No Roman Catholic in our midst, in Aguleri.
32.        Don’t say “eh”, it has become their habit. After killing the saints, he granted them indulgence. Let us continue. I want to arrive at something.  
33.        And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus:
34.        and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carried her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns…”
35.        You know what that means? The beast carrying the woman. The woman is sitting on top of a beast. And you know the beast, you know the woman. Who is carrying Roman Catholic upon her? The beast must carry the woman about. God have mercy on us.
36.        The woman is sitting on top of a beast and that beast has power like a dragon to carry that woman about. The beast will come to Nigeria carrying the woman also.
37.        Suffering will increase in Nigeria. It will be so terrible that people will park away to their villages. If you look at everything, the man is behind the trouble we are passing through but it won’t last too long.
38.        “…The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
39.         And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth…”
40.        Can you see the description now? Here is the mind that has wisdom. Let me tell you, we are with God. Here is the mind that has wisdom, the woman, the seven horn or seven heads, let us read it there.
41.        And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”
42.        The seven heads represent seven mountains on which the woman sitteth. I told you that Rome is the city of seven hills. That is the first hill of St. Peter’s Basilica. A city on seven hills.
43.        Are we to search for the woman again? We have seen the headquarters from there she is operating in the beast carrying horn. Glory be to God.
44.        God is truth. The truth is that God has blinded them so that their willful rejection of the truth shall not be forgiven. They willfully rejected the truth so God can never forgive them again. Because you are obeying, God will keep on opening your eyes. Does it need any apology?
45.        If you love Me, keep My commandments. If he has love, can he order the killing of the saints? Is there any sin he committed? So, he will go ahead preaching peace, peace, peace. And the world will be following him saying “Peace, peace, peace.” Before they know it, sudden destruction will come upon them. Amen.
46.        And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eight and he is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.”
47.        Who knows the history of the popes? It is contained even in our book. Trace the history of the popes let us know where this man can be found.
48.        If you read the history of the popes, you will notice that this man comes at the eight. Just read the history of the popes. We are in for trouble.
49.        See all the popes that appeared on the scene making proclamation against this beast, count them. All that have come with this beast’s nature, count them. All that have appeared solemnly for Catholicism count them.  
50.        If God is going to smite him with the sword of His mouth, God is going to use a man. I say God is going to use a man to reveal this man I am seeing. He will use that man to deal with him. He will use that man to show the whole world the man that has troubled everybody.
51.        I believe there is going to be a man that will tell the world, “behold, the antichrist is here look at him.” And he traced it from the SCRIPTURES; show the whole world why they shouldn’t receive him. God must be in a man to do His work.  
52.        “…And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
53.        These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”
54.        That is what I want to strike. Those that are with the Lamb are called, chosen and faithful. Did he say he will overcome us? The Lamb will overcome. This is My consolation. The Church must overcome. Amen.

WHAT TIME IS IT Church? (2)
Revelation chapter 18 verse 1- “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2.           And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the home of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” Amen.
3.           Has it not confirmed it? Glory be to God.
4.           For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
5.           And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”
6.           Verse 9 “And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
7.           And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble.”
8.           If you want to know what the Bible is describing, go to Holy Trinity or go to St. Mary’s hall, every Tuesday, see what is displayed on the main road there.
9.           Every Tuesday, from nine o’clock in the morning, pass through Awka Road, turn your eyes towards that cathedral there, see what is displayed on the main road. There is no type of ornament you will never see. That is why they believe anybody that attends Roman Catholic is dead.
10.        Brethren, are we not a blessed people? They are gathering all of them together, taking one name. You are either a catholic or a child of God.
11.        Now, relax your mind. My time is not yet come. Guide Me correctly. 10 minutes to 11. I now invite the pastor to come and bless you. I am coming back again. I have told the stories; I don’t want to open the seal. Amen.

THE HOUR WE ARE LIVING IN
M
atthew 16 verse 2-3 “He answered and said unto them, when it is evening, ye say, it will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
2.           And in the morning, it will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?” KJV.
3.           No man knoweth the time but Him. What time is it Church? No man can answer this question but the man that asked the question. He will answer the question in the way everybody will understand. For if we cannot understand, we will not know what is required of us.
4.           There is something I want to tell you, any day we have a program here, as many of us that are independent, we should do everything we are doing on time, we should beef up our faith in prayer. Prepare ourselves before coming to Fellowship.
5.            And as many of us that are under somebody we should endeavor to be released on time to prepare ourselves before coming here. You won’t know the meaning until you start practicing it. I am telling you the truth.
6.           Many will break loose from their employer to go home to do carnal work. You are guilty because you didn’t achieve the purpose before you left your office.
7.           Any day we have programmed to be here, programme yourself very well so that you have some time to pray. When we come here, you can hook up in the spirit. Amen.
8.           The scripture we considered, I will attempt to answer many questions today. I mean the question of your heart. The Lord will help Me trace it as it affects the individual. Nobody will raise up his or hand but I will bring the question in your heart out because I want to remove every doubt in your heart.
9.           Every confusion in your heart must be removed this moment. That is why I am here otherwise; I should have been sitting down on my seat.
10.        Jerusalem is My hometown, I cannot afford to leave Jerusalem. I know Jerusalem has their own problem, but that will not scare Me away.
11.        They can punish their Prophet, punish the Apostle, attempt to kill Him but that will not scare me. My love for Jerusalem will not fail. I have many reasons why I made that statement.
12.         The hour we are living in is a delicate one. I am not going to evangelize it. Let Me show you scriptures so that you will know what I want to do.
13.        Follow Me to St. Matthew gospel chapter 13 verse 35 through 36 only. That is exactly what I want to do. “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
14.        Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.” KJV.
15.        I am here this day that it might come to pass that which is written in the Holy Scripture that I will utter deep things that are kept secret from the whole world since the world began.  And that is why I cannot harbor any stranger in our midst.
16.        It is of the same reason I welcome our former madam here Joshua. Sister Joshua, between madam and Sister Joshua, which one do you like? She answered “sister.”
17.        She loves sister more than madam. Are you ready to behave like a sister? Are you ready? I mean not only in the home but also in the market.
18.        There was a day I saw you at the market when you were talking, I saw you people talking there. I saw our sister coming out doing her mouth like this. Anybody that pass, she will say, ‘come and buy, come and buy. It is good for you, it is good for you.’ Madam I am calling, I am calling you.
19.        They don’t know you. You will say, “Customer, why do you look at me like that? Are we quarrelling?” I don’t know the person and you have not seen the person before. Sister will come out and be shouting “salute me.”
20.        You will be wondering what is wrong with this people. Why don’t you keep silent and be there. People that are passing are seeing you. They know what they need before coming. If you have what they come for, they will come to you. Shouting does not bring anybody.  
21.        I don’t buy anything from such people; I will rather buy from the quiet ones. If you buy something from such people they will engage you in talking competition. Real talking competition.  I hope you will change this spirit in you because it is a dangerous spirit.
22.        When I answer the question on the board, everybody here will be settled. It is a million naira question. Call it the greatest question of the year or the greatest question of the age.
23.        Let us see that scriptures in another translation. St. Matthew 13 verse 35 through 36 only. “This was in fulfillment of what was spoken by the prophet: I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things that have been hidden since the foundation of the world.
24.        Then He left the throngs and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him saying, Explain to us the parable of the darnel in the field.” AMP.
25.        St. Luke chapter 12 verse 54-56. “He also said to the crowds of people, when you see a cloud rising in the west, at once you say, it is going to rain! And so it does. And when [you see that] a south wind is blowing, you say, There will be severe heat! And it occurs.
26.        You play-actors (hypocrites)! You know how [intelligently] to discern and interpret and prove the looks of the earth and sky; but how is it that you do not know how to discern and interpret and apply the proof to this present time?” AMP.
27.        I want everybody to be alert. Jesus the Christ sent the multitude away, I went to a solitary place, his disciples went to him. He first of all challenged them, he said, “You are a hypocrite, you are intelligent enough to discern the weather and predict and it goes accurately.
28.        “When you say it is going to rain, it must surely rain. When you say it must be strong wind, it must come to pass. With all your intelligence, why is it that you cannot accurately predict the time you are in?”
29.        Do we have such in our midst today? Do we have hypocrites here? If by now you are still a hypocrite, if by now you are claiming what you are not, when will you repent?
30.        I am tempted to ask this question. If there is any brother or sister in this Church, all heads bow down, all eyes closed. Don’t answer Me this question hastily.
31.        If there is any brother or sister in this Church, no matter the age, your fellowship with that person has been severed. Spiritually, you are not in fellowship with that person, show by raising your hand. All heads bow down, all eyes closed.
32.        I repeat, check properly. Is there any brother or sister no matter his or her age, you know you don’t have the right fellowship with the person in the spirit because fellowship takes place in the spirit.
33.        I am not saying that you should go to the person, I say show by raising your hands.
34.         God bless you my brother. God bless you My sister. God bless you. Lift your hand up.
35.        You know those people, if I don’t see your hand up, I will not take action. I never meant to do this; I don’t know why the spirit is leading Me this way!   
36.        If you know your fellowship with the person has been severed in the spirit, I don’t ask why? I said show Me your hand. 1, 2, 3, 4, this hypocrite, are you raising up your hands or not? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Stand up. If you are holding your own, hold it forever.
37.        This night is a different night altogether. I told you, I gave Myself to prayer concerning today. If you trouble me, My face will be up.
38.        I will call you by your names and I will reveal all your secrets, because I have given you the opportunity to amend your ways with your brother, with your sister. You hardened your heart, sat down as if all is well when all is not well. But I will reveal your secret and show you the way out.
39.        If I don’t send you out, I will lift you up before God and the Lord Himself will expose you in such a terrible way that you cannot wriggle out again. Everybody will hear about your deeds, ears will tingle.
40.        The Bible is saying to you, “This hypocrite, you actors, you could predict everything accurately well but you cannot intelligently, accurately predict the time you are in. what a horrible condition. That somebody could come to a point where his life is in danger and he doesn’t know.
41.        If My life is in danger and I don’t know, how can I escape? If danger is lying ahead of Me and I cannot see it because of spiritual blindness, how can I escape?
42.        Save yourself the agony of going to hell. Hold nothing from one another. No man will swallow one another. We are brethren.
43.        The only thing you can do is to quarrel me, you cannot swallow me. So for that, I will tell you all I have in My heart. The way I am thinking towards you, I will say everything to you. You are not going to swallow me.  
44.        All those still outside, I pity you. I pity you. Those that are still harboring iniquity in them, I pity you. What will it profit you if tomorrow or next the Lord wraps up everything and there is no room for forgiveness again, what will it profit you? You labour in vain all these years. Those outside, help yourself and help others.
45.        The most unfortunate thing I have seen in this faith, when you want to make things right, you start making thing wrong.
46.        Remember, when the Son of Man shall appear, He can never take the chaff into the bag. It is impossible! He must remove all provocative things.  
47.        How many will like Me to talk to you in privacy? Do you know I have reasons why I appear here from time to time? I reserve the right to stay in My rented apartment and meet only those that I want to meet. Entertain those I want to entertain, tell them what I want to tell them.
48.        All I have to do is to reach communities through their community leaders. You know there are community leader? When it reaches your community leader, he carries his gong to spread the message.
49.        There is only one reason why I find it very difficult to give a message here. It is because of fanaticism. I could have allowed us to continue from the way we have been operating.
50.        Dr. Igwe, Brother Nnamdi, have you now aligned your relationship? Brother Joshua, are you hearing what I am saying here?
51.        We can predict the weather very well, perfectly predict event and they will come to pass. But Christ is saying, “With our intelligence, we cannot predict the time we are living in.”
52.        And the question before us is: What time is it Church? What time are we living in? This question must be answered in this message from the Holy Scriptures.  
53.        Let Me turn tO THE other way now. There must be a man of righteousness for us to know who the man of sin is. Without a man of righteousness, the man of sin cannot be identified because where there is no law, there is no sin.
54.        THUS, it REQUIRES a bad man to know who a good man is. If we don’t know a good man, we can hardly identify a bad man.  
55.        We know a good man by his fruits. We know a bad man by his fruits. We know the spirit that is in my by his action. If the action is good, we will say that God is in this person. If the action is devilish, we say that Satan is in the man.  
56.        looking at the message we Have received so far, can anybody say that this message is not pointing to us towards righteousness and holy living?
57.        Is this gospel not PATTERNING after godliness and righteousness? Because I believe if this message is a special message patterning after the world, the world would have followed it.
58.        If we are saying what others are saying, behaving the way they are behaving, accommodating what they are accommodating, don’t you think the world would have followed us?
59.        If the man that is having the message of godliness and righteousness is the man of sin, what are we to call a man with all deceivableness of unrighteousness, what shall we call him? Are we to call him A man of God?
60.        At least, I have given you the nuggets that make you understand the message we are in. The message you are in is something you can prove by yourself using your Bible, and the spirit of God in you bearing witness that you are not deceived by anybody.
61.        That is why we have not used sweet words to deceive anybody IN THIS FAITH. We are not preaching with respect of persons. With every amount of boldness and courage we declare the whole truth not minding who is concernED! We have preached things against ourselves.
62.        If by now you have not proved for yourself with the spirit of God guiding you, what this faith stands for, you are a follow, follow. The moment you start approving this faith, know where he is heading to. Separate it from any other faith in the world. Make comparison, there is no way you can make it.
63.        The problem of many here is that they are just following for following sake because we are saying it is truth and the person says, “amen.” They have not settled down to prove this truth. I have proved this truth, I am sharing a testimony.
64.        Our former minister and Brother Weston went to our sister Pauline the wife of Brother Thomas who is virtually new in the faith.
65.        He went to the woman intending to preach the woman out of the faith by telling the woman that this faith is devilish, that the hand of God is not there. That we do not know scriptures.
66.        The woman told Weston to prove it. Weston said, “If God has come down, why are we still suffering? Why has He not wiped tears from your eyes? For that is what God said He would do. That He will wipe tears from our eyes and we will not labour again.
67.        The sister said, “Is it now that you know? If you are sorrowing, I am not sorrowing. If you are having tears in your eyes, I am not having tears in my eyes. If you are still laboring, I am not laboring.”
68.        She went further, “Weston, if they were in error maybe it was before I came in. But when I came in, all they have taught me, they are all scriptural. Every interpretation, are all scriptural. I have never seen any single error in their doctrine. Talk of their wife, they are perfect.
69.        She said, “Weston, can you talk about your wife?  Weston, I have heard about your problem, how you were excommunicated. Why not repent?”
70.        Weston turned round said, “You are a wise woman.” And then, shamefully, he left the woman.
71.        If you know Weston, you will know that it is not easy for a woman to resist him. See how cunning he did it? Did the Bible say when God comes He will wipe off tears from our eyes.
72.        In other words, the person is in millennium. Have we ever preached that we have entered millennium? Our sister understood him immediately. Why? She has sat down to scrutinize the faith by using the Bible and the spirit of God guiding her. She discovered that everything has been done scripturally. That if there is problem anywhere, it is the individual and not in the faith.
73.        If there is a problem in the faith, that problem is in the individual who is claiming that he is in this faith.
74.        Because of the faith, this message is immaculate white. This message is as naked as the day. It is a message nobody will deceive you with. All you need is to remove the stick from your eyes. When the scale FALLS off, you can then probe into the scriptures.
75.        At Nsukka, brethren came with testimonies. Those people that rejected the truth are now coming for the truth. Some of them are going to Nsukka, while some are coming to Onitsha.
76.        The man that said I should come has now volunteered to come. What is his testimony? He said, “He has gone to the fellowship at Nsukka, their life, their orderliness, he said, it is perfect. That he is of the opinion that it must be the Almighty God to keep a people in this way.
77.        Concerning the message, he said all his years carrying Bible in spite of his first degree that he has never come across a man that has spoken like this. That man must be God in human form. Then he sends a message that he will be coming anytime from now.
78.        Another one is called Chukwuma maybe by 16th April, he will come. God knows what He is doing. Look at the way God has penetrated Nsukka Campus. Many lecturers are coming. They are demanding for the books. Brethren have told them to come to Onitsha. And they are saying they are coming after their exams. That they will not afford to perish when the boat is still on the land.
79.        So, I am trying to help your faith that the earlier you settle down, use your Bible to verify every truth we have told you in the Church. The earlier you do it, the better for you if you have not done it before.
80.        If I want eternal life and that eternal life has been given to me, the road has been shown to me, if I perish, I will blame myself. That goes to show that I am not serious.
81.        I want somebody to rise up and challenge this message one day. Have we not printed many books that were distributed worldwide? Why is it that nobody has risen to challenge this message? Could it be that they are fearing us?
82.        We have even confronted many I mean face to face. And at the end, they will run away. Some will say they are coming but they will not come. I have never received any report that a brother went to war and was conquered. I have not heard it, not in this faith.
83.         Even the most feeble one in our midst, he is stronger than the General Superintendent of any Church. The weakest woman here, see Madam Joshua, she is the weakest. She is stronger than Kumuyi. If she can open her heart and believe the scripture, she can make Kumuyi to look like a heathen. By this, we know we are in the right way.
84.        Then, you come to our personAL conducts because any doctrine that cannot regulate your life is a useless doctrine. That is where the greatest problem lies.
85.        The reason why the message has not reflected in the life of many is because of insincerity. The summary of the problem is insincerity.
86.        People give the impression that all is well when all is not well. You see them putting on smile, using false smile to cover hatred.
87.        If you die in that condition, do you think there is any remedy? Any remedy? Anybody that is not saved in this faith committed suicide.
88.        Because in this faith, God will always make a way of escape. Yet, people harden their heart. Amen.

WHAT TIME IS IT Church? (3)

Let us go further. We can predict the weather but the time we are living in, we cannot predict. So, I am going to speak on very deep things.

2.           Matthew 13 verse 35 through 38. “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

3.           Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

4.           They came to him in privacy, declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

5.           Matthew 24 verse 3. “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” KJV.

6.           In another private place his disciples came to him privately saying, “Tell us when all these things shall take place. What is the time of your coming? And what is the time of the end of the world?” Another question.

7.           “Tell us, when shall all these things be and what shall be the time of thy coming and of the end of the world?”

8.           You see, it is very clear that the world will come to an end one day and nobody knows that day except God. Christ being God, He holds the answer.

9.           These are deep things that are hidden from human beings from the foundation of the world only to be revealed this moment to the sons and daughters of God. If only you can be patient with Him. If I notice you are impatient, I will cut it off. I will give you time to pray.

10.        Your prayer is useless until you know what you are praying for. You cannot pray UNTIL there is need for praying. And the need for prayer cannot arrive until you have been taught.

11.        Somebody has been bringing the revelation but you tear it up. You need prayer. There is need for prayer.

12.        Another person when Daniel was put in the lion’s den, Daniel discovered that his life was in danger; by revelation, Daniel had to pray. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego at the same time also.

13.        At another time Daniel read from the book of Jeremiah and saw that they had already spent all their time in Babylon that the time for leaving Babylon has come, he began to pray by revelation.

14.        I want to bring everybody to that revelation where you will know the time and then know what is expected of you. Otherwise, you will not know. You won’t know when it is time for evangelism and know the time for prayer.    

15.        Follow Me patiently. I have often told our sisters that are pregnant that they should cheer up. Not even one will perish because of pregnancy. On the day of catching away of the saints, God will catch you up with your babies. You will deliver your baby there without any problem.   

16.        Jeremiah 16 verse 8-16. “Thou shalt not also go into the house of feasting, to sit with them to eat and to drink. For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will cause to cease out of this place in your eyes, and in your days, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride.

17.        And it shall come to pass, when thou shalt shew this people all these words, and they shall say unto thee, wherefore hath the LORD pronounced all this great evil against us?  Or what is our iniquity?  Or what is our sin that we have committed against the LORD our God? Then shalt thou say unto them,

18.        Because your fathers have forsaken me, saith the LORD, and have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshipped them, and have forsaken me, and have not kept my law; and ye have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, ye walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto me:

19.        Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods day and night; where I will not shew you favour. Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.

20.        But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.”

21.        Verse 17. “For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes.” KJV. Amen.

22.        You notice that they are going to be hunt out and push out everyone of them for the face of the Lord is seeing all of them and what they are doing. 

23.        Jeremiah chapter 31 verse 8. “Behold, I will bring them from the North Country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame,…” the blind and the lame. “…the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together:…”

24.        Even somebody in the labour room will not be left behind. Pregnant sisters will not be left behind.

25.        “…a great company shall return thither.” KJV.

26.        Notice what is going on. A gathering is going on in the Gentiles. A gathering is also taking place in the Jews. My topic is What time is it Church?

27.        I am trying to attempt this question, I will link it up with number two question the Lord helping Me. And I cannot answer it with My human brain. By the unction of the Holy Spirit, I will line it up in the scripture.

28.        A gathering together of God’s people is taking place in the Jewish land. A gathering together of God’s people in taking place in the Gentile land. The two gatherings are going together hand by hand.

29.        Israel that was scattered all over the world are now going back as a nation to form the Common Wealth of Israel, preparatory for their Jubilee and for their Sabbath. Israel of God are gathering in the Gentile as a Church preparatory for the catching away. I don’t know whether you are catching what I am saying.

30.        Here in the Gentile, two gatherings are going on at the same time. Gathering of the tares and gathering of the wheat. There also in the Jewish land, two gatherings are going together there: The gathering of the real Jews, those that have been converted in the heart and the gathering of the false Jews. Those that claim to be Jews but they are not.

31.        I know the gathering of those that say they are Jews but they are not. But they are rather synagogue of Satan. Thus, when you hear Me saying “Israel,” I am speaking to Israel of God in the Gentile. When I say “Jew,” I am referring to the Jewish nation.  

32.        What time is it Church? Let us go back to the Bible. Ezekiel chapter 36 verse 1- “Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD:

33.        Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:

34.        Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the heathen, and ye are taken up in the lips of talkers, and are an infamy of the people:

35.        Therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a prey and derision to the residue of the heathen that are round about;

36.        Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea, which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.

37.        Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I have spoken in my jealousy and in my fury, because ye have borne the shame of the heathen:…”  

38.        “…Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand, surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame. But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come.

39.        For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown: And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded:

40.        And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

41.        Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel; and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them of men.

42.        Thus saith the Lord GOD; because they say unto you, Thou land devourest up men, and hast bereaved thy nations; Therefore thou shalt devour men no more, neither bereave thy nations any more, saith the Lord GOD.

43.        Neither will I cause men to hear in thee the shame of the heathen any more, neither shalt thou bear the reproach of the people any more, neither shalt thou cause thy nations to fall any more, saith the Lord GOD.

44.        Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings: their way was before me as the uncleanness of a removed woman.

45.        Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it: And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged them.

46.        And when they entered unto the heathen, whither they went, they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, these are the people of the LORD, and are gone forth out of his land.

47.        But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went. Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.

48.        And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.

49.        For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

50.        A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

51.        And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

52.        I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.” KJV.

53.        I want to strike something there. The Lord who scattered Israel is the Lord who is gathering Israel back. Because of their idolatry, because of their uncleanliness which they practiced in the land the Lord gave them, the fury of the Lord was kindled against them, the Lord scattered them all over the earth.

54.        When they ran to uttermost part of the world, the heathens where they ran to started mocking the Name of the Lord. They have recognized the Jews whose God is Jehovah.

55.        They cause the Name of Jehovah to be profane in the land of the heathens. And the Lord is no longer pleased to see His Name being blasphemed by the heathens. Thus, the Lord decided to step in not for the sake of His people but the sake of His Name.

56.        If He should allow them to remain in captivity in all the heathen land, if He should wait until they will repent by doing good, it will be impossible. The Lord has decided to step in to redeem His Name.

57.        And the only way He will do it is to prove to the whole world that He is still the God of the Jews. That the Jewish people still remain His people. He will take them back to their own land from where He scattered them.

58.        And there, He will be their God and they will be His people. The Lord said, “I will sprinkle pure water upon them, wash them off of all uncleanliness.” Amen.

59.        When the Messiah shall turn to Israel, He shall put away the transgression of Jacob. Is that not scripture? THERE SHALL COME A DELIVERER FROM ZION AND SHALL TURN AWAY THE TRANSGRESSION OF JACOB.  

60.        He is saving them for His Name sake back to that same land which He promised to give to their fathers. Today, have we seen them back? Is it because of their righteousness?

61.        Let us see what will happen to Ephraim. I was reading in My family before Brother Joseph came in. And He has been coming for some time now. I showed them where the problem started. I showed them the inheritance of Dan.

62.        What is more, I showed them where Jacob left Ephraim without a blessing. Jacob cleverly abandoned Ephraim but blessed Dan. Gave him a portion but refused to give Ephraim a portion. Let us go to the scripture and know whether it is true.  Amen.
