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.               

HOLY GHOST AND HIS NECESSITY

Preached on 16TH May, 1993 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE SUPREME INTELLIGENCE” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

THE MANIFESTATION
IS THE INTERPRETATION
Watch out, if it is not God, it is not God. If it is God, it is God. The spirit must be one. There is only but one God, one doctrine, one baptism, one faith. Hallelujah.
2.           Follow me; if it is not God, it is not God. If it is God, it is God.  God hates blasphemy. That is why when you come here you can claim whatever you want to claim but God is coming to confirm it and He will never leave you to go unpunished.
3.           When He has decided to help you out and because of your pride, you know what will happen to you. It is a lesson to all believers in their day.

4.           .God is here. Did God accuse you falsely? Did He call your name falsely? You are a man; you started with this man. You didn’t grow higher than Him one bit, you can never grow higher than Him.  Even right now you are not better because of what happened recently. 
5.           But before, what is operating in Him now was what was operating in Him making you to give false impression that you were in prison, you didn’t know you were not until the plumb line was set.
6.           It is very clear now than before because the pampering spirit is not attached to my ministry. No pastor is attached to my ministry, No! 
7.           I have a man that follows me wherever I go and we are in one spirit.  Now the fire is here!  The fire is here! Amen!  My brother, have you received the Holy Ghost since you were baptized? Be sincere to yourself. Don’t be afraid. No comment.
8.           YOU MUST SPEAK.  No man can ever blaspheme God and get away with it.  Bro Nath did you get away with it?  (No Sir).  Amen! 
9.           Did Jeremiah get away with it? (No Sir).  Did you get away with it? No Sir.  Did Ben get away with it? (No Sir).
10.        You told God before His Church that you received the Holy Ghost.  You have the Spirit of God in you.  Sure? 
11.        We will know what brought lust today.  L.U.S.T. Struggling every day to free yourself from lust: Struggling every day!  Don’t worry, we are penetrating more. 
12.        Be silent Church. I love God.  He can never speak in vain.  If you know God has ever accused you falsely, if you know God has in any way accused any of you falsely either through My mouth (The Son of Man) or through the mouth of any of your pastors, evangelists or teachers, or any prophet, raise up your hand.  He will speak.  He has mouth. 
13.        I Am here. You see, there is one thing that makes me (The Son of Man) glad. As long as God is with Me (The Son of Man) I have every boldness to declare what He has put in my mouth because I remember at the bank of the River Niger I didn’t know where Ben from Obosima went and preached to a mad man and contacted a mad spirit; were you not witnesses? 
14.        The voice came forth saying “Paul I know, Jesus I know,” the thing stopped.  Were you not witnesses at the bank of the river?
15.        The following day he realized himself and started making confessions.  He was preaching in a mechanic workshop where I went with Bro Ben, preaching to a mad man.  How did he end? He ended by pouring the man water, the man turned to Brother Ben and said, “Look at somebody telling us to repent”. 
16.        He didn’t know he contacted a spirit.  Nobody was there and we didn’t know that he went to the river with Brother Okey by foot. We met them there.  Nobody knew where we went. 
17.        We never told anybody, and I called him to come and interpret for us.  The moment he lifted the Holy Bible, a voice came down from heaven, “Mind the kind of battle you are fighting”.  Paul I know, Jesus I know.” The voice stopped.
18.        I know the scripture. God wanted me to complete it and He wanted bro Ben to complete it.  I thank God.  Here nobody, that is why if you are not certain, you are not certain.  When you have a strange spirit, you have to confirm it by the word with your life and then Christ who is there will be confirming it within you by His word also. 
19.        Let me tell you something. There is something that is deceiving people and that man who tend to use it, the pastor brought him under control, saying heaven can quake, fire can come down, if that is the way you call your God, that is not the way, we have known more than that. 
20.        You may go to the wilderness and pray many times, call upon God, and a god must answer you. A god must surely answer you and whatever you require, you must receive it. 
21.        From all indications, right now, I am going back.  You may not even get away completely even from the occult world.  You may not even have gotten away completely.  I’m saying “may not”, get me right because I know the type of spirit you contacted and what is required to break it, to break the covenant, I know what is required and when you need it I will know and God must speak. 
22.         I wish you were here last night.  That was on Friday night.  I am not attacking spirits right now.  I’m treating something higher than that and when I look into the congregation and I see any spot somewhere, I must find out why that spot is there. 
23.        You are not under a curse and there is no blasphemy, we will know what spotted you. I don’t write any sermon, what is written here has been here since 1992.  It’s something that we started praying and one day God halted it for another day. 
24.        We were going home, so we must know all these things so that when they start happening in your homes you will know how to handle them because you will not be seeing us now, you will be seeing God. 
25.        Your families have been marked, do you know that?  The day He ordered everybody into the room after the Last Supper, He told us to lock our houses, the same angel that met us on Thursday during prayer meetings, and performed those things.  He came to our houses and was marking all of us. 
26.        What is more, we heard the prophecy that went forth confirming it.  God is not a liar.  The same way the devil marked his people, God is marking His people:  “I know where thou dwelleth”, is that not Bible? 
27.        I am trying my best to see what I can do to find this thing today because any moment from now, you won’t be seeing me, you will only be seeing me anytime the Lord is sending me here for something and you know we are not meeting here after this week. 
28.        Where do we meet? We will meet in the WORD.  That is why you must be fortified.  God speaks. The manifestation is the interpretation. AMEN.

THE REVOLT OF THE BODY
The book of First Corinthians chapter twelve verse 4 through 6 (1 Corinthians 12:4-6); “Now there are diversities of gift but the same spirit and there are difference s of administration but the same Lord and there are diversities of operation but it is the same God which worketh all in all”. KJV. 
2.            God gives His gift to the Church as He decides.  No man can dictate to God, “God I want to be this, God I want to be that, God I want this one;” whichever one He feels He can give you, He gives. 
3.           Gift is free of charge.  You don’t give a man a command on what to give you.  You have no choice of it.  You didn’t pay for it.  Whatever he decides to give you, He gives.  Your own may not be my own.  As our faces are different, so our gifts are different.   So you don’t envy my own, I will not envy your own.  Be satisfied with your own gift.   
4.           That one the Lord has given you, watch the way it is going to happen, there is no other thing you can do better except that one.  If you know what you are doing in this body now, that is your gift.  If you are a liar, that is your gift. If you are a fornicator, a covetous man filled with lust, greed, malice, anger, hot-temper and you are here, that is your gift.  From which spirit?  Bottomless pit; From the devil. 
5.           Somebody may say “what?”  Yes, angels of the devil come to Church.  Each time the children of God gather, the devil will not allow them.  He has his ministers; they disguise themselves and call themselves ministers of righteousness.  They will not call themselves ministers of unrighteousness.  .
6.           But watch, they have a tag post: they can never produce Christ.  They can never make the WORD become flesh.  Impossible! God gives His gift as He decides.
7.           Verse 11– But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will”.
8.            By the same spirit dividing to every man severally as He wills not as you will.  Is that Bible?  This is beating some people hollow.  It’s beating some people hands down.  You can take the whole sermon books in the world, if the spirit that was in Branham is in me, it can never contradict the Bible. 
9.           We are continuing. 1 Corinthians 12:7:But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. KJV.
10.        Everyone must have at least one gift, at least one.  Somebody may have up to four.  Some may have five according to your level of faith.  But when you have your gift and you don’t want to put it in operation, God will take it away and give to somebody else. 
11.        God cannot waste His gift.  If you pour it on the ground, God will say No, no, no, I need it in my Church for the perfection of this body. 
12.        You See, we are members of one body.  You are very, very important here, I am important. Everybody is important and whatever God has given us we must never play with it.
13.          If it is ministration, let us minister according to the faith given to us.  If it is exhortation, let us exhort. If it is teaching, let us teach. If it is evangelism, let us evangelize. If it is pastoral, let us pastor.
14.        Romans 12: 4-6, For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:  So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.   Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
15.        We are all members of one body with different gifts given to us by One Spirit.  Don’t play with your own.
16.        Corinthians 12: 14 – 20 For the body is not one member, but many.   If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?   And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?  
17.        If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?   But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.  And if they were all one member, where were the body?   But now are they many members, yet but one body”.  Amen.
18.        It requires no explanation.  Before we leave this hall, God helping Me, I am going to preach a small message; very short, evangelical.  The Revolt of the Body”. 
19.        Imagine a day the mouth will revolt: “I won’t eat again”, what will happen to the whole body? Then the stomach will revolt: “I will not accommodate food again”, no food will enter here.  The hand will say: “no I will never work again, enough is enough, I will fold”.  Then the eyes will say: “I am tired of seeing let me close”. 
20.        You see, when the body revolts against itself, will be total collapse.  In this body, when you start revolting against yourselves, when you know your position is important, my position is important, you are sitting in your own office doing a very important thing there, and I am in my own office doing a very important thing; and you revolt against yourself, this body will collapse.
21.        In other words, the kingdom has risen against itself:  “I will not do this, I won’t sweep this place,” no, no, no, the body will collapse and when the body collapses, everybody is in hell. 
22.        I am giving you just an insight.  It’s going to be evangelical so that you will not revolt against yourself.  When you revolt against yourself, you will be like a snail that was crying in the fire but didn’t want to die, not knowing she was losing her water. When the water finishes, the snail becomes dry and dies off. 
23.        Be spiritual.  I am talking to spiritual people.  Verse 21-22, “And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.  Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: 
24.        This is small, small things you neglect in the Church.  Small, small gifts like usher or deacon or song leader or organist or tape minister or electrician.  These things you call feeble or the sisters in their offices with their little ones, you call them feeble; God is saying they matter a lot in the body.  Is that scriptural? 
25.        Don’t look at Me as if I am writing a new Bible.  I know what is happening.  The prophet told Me that when a man receives Holy Ghost, the Bible becomes a new book, these things are not written now. 
26.        Verse 24 – 27 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honor to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 
27.        And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honored, all the members rejoice with it.  Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.”
28.        Have you gotten the revelation now?  How many have gotten the revelation?  What if you go out tomorrow gossiping and quarrelling, won’t it show that you are not a member of the body.  By this we will know who are in the body and who are not. 
29.        Can the body fight against itself?  Your position in the Church is very important, your gift is very important.  My own is important.  My own alone will not perfect this Church.  Your own alone will not perfect this Church.  My own will combine with your own, your own will combine with my own to build up this body to perfection. 
30.        But you see some people, they will be saying, “I will not allow that, I will not allow that,” no, no, no, no; don’t mind them. From the foundation of the world, that is how they were brought up; they have followed their father.  When they see these things manifesting, they don’t know the cost of giving holy free gifts to His Church. 
31.        There was a message our brother Nath handled, that was “WISDOM” and he said, “Men are now in the pulpit, they don’t allow God to lead and that has brought us confusion.” That was a perfect message;  the problem of the land; uncalled men leading instead of allowing God to lead His Church. 
32.        They now want to lead God’s Church, taking another man’s property.  They drove out the Holy Spirit.  But in this Church will allow Holy Ghost chance to lead.  Whatever He wants to do with His Church, our duty is to follow Him. This is the secret of our success. No more, no less.
33.        Even all these people that are criticizing us, blaspheming the Holy Ghost before this little Ministry manifested, all of them were bearing testimonies, that if you want to see the true Church of God, go to Nkpor.  All of them, watch all these people, hypocrites! 
34.        That was why when they came down they became amazed.  Some started telling lies, “We are sorry, take away the curse. We were misinformed, we were not told the truth, that was why we came with bad motives. Please brother, don’t be offended, just pray for me.  You said we should write; I’m writing my letter as soon as I get home.  I will come down to Obosima.” 
35.        I said, “I don’t come anyhow, my God speaks. Even if the Church says go, we must fast and pray, until we hear from God, you will not see anybody.”
36.        The time is gone when we worship God as a dumb God.  God speaks.  We are climbing higher.  Any moment from now I will stop.  We should not use the gift to break the Church rather we use the gift to edify the Church, to build up the Church in the knowledge of the truth. 
37.        Anywhere you see gift operating and it is dividing the Church, Number One: that gift is not from God or there is no pastor there.  Where is the pastor of this Church?  I want you to be here!
38.         Any where you see gifts dividing the Church, scattering the Church, it is either the gift is not from God or there is no pastor in that Church.  Pastor Okechukwu did you hear Me?  This is the voice of God in your day. 
39.        Anywhere the manifestation of gifts in the Church instead of building up the Church in the knowledge of truth, it is dividing the Church, scattering the Church, it is either it is not from God or there is no pastor in that Church. 
40.        One, if it is not from God, no matter how the pastor tries it must scatter the Church.  If it is from God and the pastor is called of God, he will pastor the people until they will know how to operate it.  Is that scripture?  That is why two persons cannot speak in tongue at the same time.  If brother is speaking and sister is led to speak, one will wait when one finishes, the interpretation will come forth; after that another person will speak.
41.        The spirit of prophecy is under the control of the prophet.  Is that not Bible?  Brother cannot be prophesying, this one prophesying all at the same time, that will be confusion, one must wait.  That was what happened here the other day: sister was about to speak when our brother had already started something.  This one had to stop. When brother finished, sister picked up and one became a confirmation of the first one, and when we were going to Eha-Amufu all of them fulfilled.  Are you not witnesses?
42.        That is why you cannot come here and everybody is speaking in tongue “kpa kpata kpata”, that is confusion.  It is not building up that Faith rather it is pulling down. 
43.        Pastor, that is why you must pastor your Church on how these gifts will operate.  We need them, they are not for the Pentecostals, they are for us. 
44.        But watch people in the End-time, they preach as if they don’t need them.  The prophet told us that they are the eyes of God in the Church.  If not the gifts who will ever know your conditions; who will ever know what happened to you?  You were outside yet we don’t know and many others were there? 
45.         God will pick up those things which no man saw; no man was a witness to so that no sinner will stand in His presence, no blasphemer will stand in His presence. 
46.        I know why God is calling Me to order.  Have you noticed one thing here?  For some time now, discernment has been going on in this third poll but in private closets.  Pastor is that right?
47.        Because when the Lord spoke concerning it, there was a way some people were feeling, so God decided to move in another way to help our little faith lest somebody will stumble, both in public and in private. 
48.        If you know God has ever accused you falsely of what you didn’t do, what was not your condition as it is revealed to you, raise up your hand.  Hallelujah.
49.        That is why I love God.  Some of us that committed fornication and hid it, it became open.    Some that yoked themselves in one society or the other everything became plain, yet they claimed they had Holy Ghost. Even a pastor that time that defiled his brother’s wife was pastoring a big Church yet defiled his brother’s wife four good times, he thought he would get freedom here, what happened? 
50.        I thank God.  You see, God wants you to hear this and we are continuing.  How many wants me to stop so far?  How many will patiently wait for Me to finish today?  We are not going anywhere.  Today is for God!  Amen.

HOW GOD’S GIFTS
SHOULD BE USED IN THE CHURCH
Now let us watch how these gifts will be used in God’s body. 1st Corinthian 14:12:Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the Church”. 
2.           Did it say excel in dividing of the Church?  Excel to the edifying not breaking, not scattering. In every gift that is given to you, excel in using it to edify the body. That is why it is given, for the edification of the body, for the work of the Ministry.
3.           Chapter 12 of first Corinthians from verse 31 (1Cor. 12 :31), “But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way.
4.           Covet earnestly.  And the Lord will show you the more excellent way.  Did it say the Apostle will show you, did it say the evangelist will show you?  When you try your best, give in your best, search it earnestly, God will show you the more excellent way. 
5.           Chapter 13 verse 8 (1Cor. 13:8), “Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 
6.           All these things must vanish one day.  Because they are gifts, you should not go about boasting about it because it can disappoint you. 
7.           One day it can stop, and your boasting becomes an empty one. But when you have that giver you rejoice forever, you can boast in the Lord.  You can boast in what He has done in your life. 
8.           Chapter 14 verse 1 (1Cor. 14:1 – 3) “Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. For He that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men but unto God for no man understandeth Him, howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries; but he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation and comfort”.  Amen.
9.           Is it in your Bible like that?  What you should covet, what you should follow, for love is from God and he that loveth is from God.  There is no law against Love.  Love never fails. Love is God, God never fails.  Is that Bible?  .
10.        Any spirit that is in you that will make you hate your brother is not God’s spirit, it is not Holy Spirit.  Holy Spirit must desire holy things.  Evil spirit must desire evil things.
11.        Watch your desire.  Some of you here, your desires are not manifesting because you don’t have the means to make it manifest.  You will not know the desires of a man until money is in his hands.  You won’t know what you hate or what you don’t hate until money is in your hands. 
12.        Some of us because we have no money, we suppress our feelings.  Let there be money in our hands, some of us will be riding V-Boot, even when the Church is dying. They will frame their own Bible; they will be reading it here and there. 
13.        Some of us here give us money today, you will see will be floating big industries, will be coming to Church any time they prepared: ‘after all I can give them a vehicle, they will be using my motor anytime I like I will come.  The pastor can never say no.”
14.         How can he? When he is paying him salary.  He that pays the piper dictates the tune.  Worldliness will not be preached again, he will scrape away Romans Chapter Twelve, (Rom. 12:2) “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”  KJV.
15.        He will take it away because he is a millionaire in his Church.  You don’t know a man’s desire until money is in his hand.  He will pull down his first building and be building a new one, a new decision.  Some of us are just doing what we are doing because nature has made us poor.  God knows why He has allowed us to be wretched. Some of us would have even been worse than Ekenedilichukwu and yet God is judging you by your desire. 
16.        Some of you are already in Jericho, already by your desires, you’ve gone back but there is no money that is left.  Watch a man that is in Jericho, any time he is planning for a wedding, you will know where his heart is.  He will say “brother, if I had money, I would have hired this video, let them video it, I will keep it for record”. 
17.        Better go and buy video machine.  Brother see, there is a way I wanted it, if not money”; go and borrow money, do it.  Watch what you place first when money comes into your hand, the moment money is in your hand watch what you place as your number one.  Carnal things, yet you have Holy Ghost. 
18.        And the Lord said “You must love me with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, everything in you, the same way, you love your neighbor”.  If you love me keep my word. 
19.        You don’t know what is in you until money is in your hand.  You will be duplicating everything you have in your house, duplicating it, it’s not a crime again.  Just like my brother, come here, you know I cannot talk without calling your name, if you get to his house, you will ask him if he is dealing with baby toy, is that not right? Because there was money that time, can you buy it again now? Go. Costly baby toys, some over one thousand, different, different types. 
20.        You start wondering, “My friend are you mad?  Look at this one, big motor cycle, you can’t carry your boy? Big motor, big aeroplane, what for?  Childish idea, yet that is the level he was carrying Bible.  Yet that is his desire.  Your own can be Hollandes, your own can be motor car, your own can be building.  Your own can be funeral service:  “How can I bury my father that way? No, no, no, it must be one month in the mortuary.”
21.         Doing what in the mortuary? No, no, no, I will prepare first, I will prepare fist.  If you bury him in the ground what will happen?  Yet Holy Ghost filled.  All my brothers must see him, I must preserve it, take it to embalmment.  Lavish the money and the Church is suffering.  I have Holy Ghost, I love God, I love God. 
22.        Check the money you spend in embalmment and mortuary bills and yet the man didn’t rise up and the woman didn’t rise up.  Don’t call yourself a Believer yet until you have changed your desire to be God’s desire.  Is it not Bible? 
23.        Let the mind that was in Christ be in you and me.  How many has it here, but we are struggling to get it.  When will you get it? Whether you like it or not, I have been ordained to preach holiness, to reach perfection to the elects, they must attain it. Your unbelief cannot hinder it. The elect must attain perfection.  Somebody must be in rapture to fulfill the word of God.  I’m holding God somewhere.  He must do it.  It is a must! 
24.        First Corinthians chapter 7 from verse 7(1Cor. 7:7) For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that”. Amen.
25.        God would have loved it if everybody would become like Him.  But as an Apostle of God, He knows it is impossible. Everybody must operate in the gift God has given him but they will all bring the Church into unity of the Faith.  They must all edify the Church.  They must bring the Church into one mind, one spirit, one accord. 
26.        The Church was in one accord, the Church today must be in one accord.  Why are we not in one accord?  Selfish desires – selfish desires – selfish desires. That is the answer.  Covetous men in the pulpit, tithe belongs to the five-fold.  Who belongs to the five-fold, who is the Levite now?  Who is the Levite today? And that’s the man challenging pass-over because he cannot balance Bible. 
27.        He doesn’t know that in the Old Testament the priests did not tie that old towel.  He can’t even know that they did not wash legs at the pass-over and he was asking “Why didn’t you bring a lamb”, you will bring a lamb which means he does not even believe the lamb of God which is Jesus Christ. 
28.        He doesn’t believe the Bible that tells us that Jesus Christ is our pass-over, that He was slain for our sake.  He is expecting another pass over.  He doesn’t know that each time a worshipper comes to perform sacrifice he must come with a lamb. 
29.        And he doesn’t know that every Believer is performing a sacrifice and he has a lamb and that lamb is our Messiah; who is slain for us for the salvation of the world.  He is a blind man and he is calling himself an evangelist.  I wish he will be here!  
30.        They err not knowing the scripture.  Tithe for five-fold.  Tithe has made them to become mad.  When they get their salary, they don’t pay tithe, no, they don’t pay. 
31.        Their salary will go home.  They will be using it to building houses, now they will program themselves, “I will go to Enugu this week, next week I will go to Aba, the other one Mbaise, the other one Lagos, the other one Kaduna”, and the month is finished.  Collecting tithe – tithe; Preaching and preaching. Covetous men! 
32.        The Church will be dying, needy brethren in the Church.  They will say “don’t touch the tithe money”, who owns the tithe?  The money belongs to them. 
33.        I thank God we are no longer under obligation.  We worship God because we love Him, we don’t follow anybody to worship God.  We worship God because we have the revelation. 
34.        Any day I use that tithe money to repair this van, come and fine me.  Any day I use that tithe money to pay a brother’s house rent, come and strangle me.  Any day I carry that tithe money to a local Church in the village, to give the pastor there, to help the needy in that place as an Apostle, come and kill me. 
35.        Any day the Lord will tell me that I will empty their purse, buy clothes, buy shoes, take it to another Church in the wilderness, to help the needy people, come and kill me. 
36.        Selfishness!  Killing people. That’s why, watch all these people, that call themselves ministers, they don’t go to the village; township ministers.  In the end they will take money.  They don’t go to the places where they can give. 
37.        Go and listen to the Church order.  This Church in the township, we are owing a duty to those less privileged in the village.  Any time an apostle is going there, he is going with materials, clothes, garri, beans, money, shoes as he is being led. When he gets there, after preaching he gives it to the pastor of the Church to distribute to the needy in that Church and I will collect receipt from him. 
38.        The same way some other churches will bring money to this place, lay them at the Apostle’s feet.  I will issue them receipt.  It may not be for this Church, it is my duty to know where they are needed.
39.         If I didn’t go, I will send the evangelist, carry this to this Church, give it to them and they will give you receipt for the body is one but you limit it to this place.
40.        Anything that comes to the Apostle, he knows how to take it to other places where they are needed; they may not be needed here. The same way, He sends the money they will give us receipt. 
41.        The Bible said “they sold their land and brought the money to the Apostle’s feet” and they were distributing to the poor as they had their need.  When you sell your land, bring it at my feet, you don’t rejoice here but you will rejoice.  My duty is to tell pastor to give me the names of the less privileged ones in your midst. That is all I need from him.  Anyway I am led to help them.
42.        Yet I will carry the same thing to other locations because it is for the Church not Nkpor.  Somebody may not even get here yet it will be carried from here to other places.  Selfishness killing them, tithe for five-fold, tithe for five-fold.  They don’t want to labour with their hands.  They want to depend on Church money.
43.         Paul labored with his hands; he didn’t want to be a burden to the Church.  He commanded them to labour with their hands so that they will not be burdens to the Church.  He that doesn’t want to labour, let him not eat. 
44.        I don’t want your money, I don’t want your tithe, I don’t want your offering, I want to live by the Word. Thank God I don’t know how you handle your money here.  Your money belongs to you, your pastor doesn’t know.  He doesn’t take your money. So only very recently I ordered that he should be given the tithe of tithes according to the word, everything collected here, one tenth goes to the pastor, to help him meet the needs of the visitors that comes to his house because his house is a palace, anybody coming must visit his house and he must feed them and when they are going, he will inform the trustees. 
45.        At times, he may not inform the trustees, he will give them his own money for transport.  It is our duty to balance him.  At times he will become sick in his house, at times he may need some bags of rice, it is Church money. God will only find him guilty when he converts it to his personal needs, then he will become guilty before God. 
46.        The essence of this offering in the Church is to continue God’s ministry on earth, dispensing God’s ministry but people will like to mould blocks with it, they will like to become limited, some will be lending money. I am telling you the truth. 
47.        Anybody that has come here to borrow money, the Church has no right to do that.  You don’t lend money to a member of the Church, you offer help to the best of your knowledge and ability. 
48.        Any brother you give any money here, don’t ask him to pay back. Brother, sister, when you come and you are not given, don’t quarrel for you cannot receive anything until it is approved by the Apostle if it is help. The pastor has no right to approve it if it is not so.
49.        The pastor has The right to approve for the purchase of items or equipments for the Church but he cannot approve for the trustees to give them N10 or N20 otherwise the Church will accuse him of mismanaging Church money.
50.        But he can approve money to buy bulb, repair amplifier, he will approve it. Repair fan, he will approve it. Give brother money for transport to go this place, he will approve it but to start giving people money, financial help, he has no right for he is a compassionate man, he is easily deceived.  He is not hardhearted.  You have to come through the Apostle. 
51.        Yes! He has to examine you and know where your problem is coming from.  If your problem is that you are not doing anything, he can say sister; take N200 start selling akamu (pap).  Sister, take N200 start frying Akara (beans cake), so that you don’t come back next time because the Church is not into bureau de change. 
52.        When you go to the pastor and he gives you N100, next week you come back, another week you come back, before you know it, it becomes scandalous in the Church.  It becomes scandalous, “He loves this one but he doesn’t give me.” That is why pastors don’t distribute it, it is the duty of an Apostle.
53.        1st Peter Chapter 4 verse 10 Through 11 (1st Pet. 4:10-11) As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.  If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever.”  Amen.
54.        Is that in your Bible?  Are you saying Amen to it?  Any day you break it you are guilty.  First Corinthians 14 from verse 26, How is it then, brethren? When ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.”
55.        If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.  But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the Church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.
56.        Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.If anything be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets .For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
57.        Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the Church.
58.        What? Came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only? If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.  .
59.        Is that in the Bible?  What I am handing down to you is not my teaching, it is the commandment from the Lord, any day you break it willfully forget about rapture until you make it right.  Are you the first Church that received this doctrine?  Why are you behaving as if you are all and all?  What is killing people in this message is pride; “I know my stand, I know what I believe.” 
60.        What nearly killed our brother. There is a reason why I am coming to this brother. Anybody he preaches to henceforth and the person does not believe, that person is a serpent seed.  I am right in my judgment.  He has gathered experience in this message and God taught him a lesson which he can never forget all his life.  Am I telling lies? 
61.        That is why if you want wisdom, meet Brother Kelechi, he will tell you. Brother, am I telling lies?  You will still see him!  You have not seen anything yet.  You met somebody in a very good form, yet you have not been spared until you go back to Aba. 
62.        God is here.  When you look at the way things are going you will think that He has left. He is ignoring a lot of things that we may continue.  Amen.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE WORD (1)
Colossians Chapter 3 read from verse 15 (Col. 3:15) And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. 
2.           Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 
3.           They that like to beat gong, Cymbals, by the testimony of two or three shall the truth be established.  Teaching and admonishing, I don’t know how you can admonish me with gong, with drum.  Read it between the lines it is for the body. You can beat your gong anywhere you want.
4.           Verse 17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”  Amen.
5.           In everything you do let it be such that will be pleasing unto God so that you receive no condemnation. If you have the spirit of the Lord, whatever you do will be guided by the spirit of God in you.  If you don’t have the spirit of God in you, whatever you are doing is either guided by the devil or by your own human spirit and that is a very dangerous thing. 
6.           That is why our brother Nath, the devil nearly destroyed him, but at the bank of the river Niger the voice went forth. Brother said, “I’ve never seen it like this before”. 
7.           I said “you cannot see it because you cannot go higher than the man that brought you in, no way”. 
8.           The reason why Paul was confident is that he was not called by any man.  If you know you called Me into this place raise up your hand.  . If you know that what I am preaching I received from you raise up your hand.  But
9.           I was still sitting down here under the nourishment of ministers that are here like most of you.  That is why from time to time I share testimonies of the Pentecostal experience so that you know how many years I have been patiently waiting for the voice.
10.        In the Pentecostal I thought Apostles were just preaching the word everywhere.  We didn’t know more than the pastors.  That time teaching was rotated.  On Monday you will teach, Thursday this one will teach.  They were sharing it. 
11.        At times they will give women; they were giving my wife that time in the Baptist.  I said “which kind Church be this?  Somebody that does not even know anything, making her to teach,” I said capital NO!  It can’t happen.  I won’t be here, no way. 
12.        There was a man that died one day and was taken beyond the human realm, and when he came back, he came back with something beyond human knowledge and here is the manifestation.
13.         That is why I can say what I preach I received from no man, no man is backing me, no way.  I know who is backing me.  If He fails to confirm all these things, He is guilty. 
14.        That is why I continue telling you, “Seven Thunders have not uttered their voices”, don’t worry about it but every day try your best to make sure your life is the life of Christ, measure your faith with the Word.  Relax your mind.  It won’t take you by surprise.  It is for you, it is for me if we remain steadfast in this Apostle’s doctrine. 
15.        Brother Kelechi has one quotation.  It used to please me “Let me be mindful of the words spoken unto us by the Apostles and prophets,” but today we look at those people in the flesh.  It profits you nothing.  Look beyond the flesh. 
16.        Keep your eyes on the Word, keep your eyes on the Word.  Measure your life every day, every minute, every given time, knowing that the night is far spent and your salvation draws nearer, now than when you first believed.  Time is no more.
17.        First Thessalonians chapter 5 read from verse 19 (1 Thess. 5:19) “Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesying.
18.        Quench not the spirit. There was a time my pastor wanted to direct the spirit.  He wanted to quench the Holy Ghost, before he knew what he was doing, he saw himself yielding to the Holy Ghost.  He wanted to place an order against the Holy Ghost, before he knew what he was doing he saw himself breaking the order which he was about to lay down.
19.         Brother, have I told lies against you?  Hallelujah!  That was the day he had his best experience.  I wonder whether you can forget it in your life. 
20.        I was somewhere praying, he came with a note he prepared.  I said “Sir, since you saw it that way glory be to God, but I don’t see it that way.”
21.          I opened my mouth to speak; he saw his foolishness. A little while I was in the Pulpit ministering.  I spoke one word, “God teach this man the lesson of his life”. 
22.        He came for prayer line, before he knew it, the Holy Ghost took him.  He was not in the pulpit.  A little while, he was glued to this wall and he was the man directing the fellowship and he became dumb.  The thing followed him home.  Sister Nonye, am I bearing false witness? It followed him home. 
23.        You see God has a way to getting a man under control. How can you teach God, God that has come down to His people?  Are they your people?  Did you gather them?  Do you know how they came and you want to quench it the more.  No one will succeed.  You do it to your own destruction.  Nobody has ever done it and succeeded.
24.        Quench not the Holy Spirit, quench it not.  Keep on living the life of Christ.  Any contrary life you live the Holy Ghost will leave you immediately but not for ever because you are a child of God. He will be somewhere watching you.  The moment you make it right, He will fly back. 
25.          He is a gentle dove that carries the elect; if He leaves you forever, no more!  Another nature will come out and if anybody sees you, he can never believe that you’ve opened the Bible once.  The day Paul Okibe came out in his colour recently in your house, he was about killing bro Ferdinand.  He said “come, come here. Am I your mate”?  You can hardly believe that he had ever opened the Bible for once because man’s nature has come out; Holy Ghost has left him forever, because God told us here that he is running a kitchen, not a Church.
26.         He must go back to Aba.  Aba people, though they are wrong, two wrongs cannot make a right.  He must make his wrong right.  Before God, he has no right to open another Church.  God is not there, that is why since that time he is a confused man. 
27.        Watch the man that is following him, it is the same spirit; he is trying to find comfort somewhere because he knows he is living wrong.  He has been wrong not today alone, but for many years. 
28.        Deep calleth deep.  Don’t you know that?  Birds of the same feather flock together. If you are not in the spirit of Christ you can never have peace here because we preach nothing but Christ in the beauty of His Holiness. No more, no less.  And if you don’t live that life you will not fit in.  That is our nature.  No man can change it. 
29.        He rebukes us very sharply, He judges us.  He corrects us in righteousness.  He chastises us with the rod of correction. 
30.        In the history of End Time Church worldwide, there has never been any place where people were dis-fellowshiped the way we dis-fellowshiped people here and that Church remained undivided.  Go and verify.
31.         We don’t respect anybody here.  The Apostle can be dis-fellowshiped tomorrow.  Is it not in tape?  Nobody is above God here.  God has preeminence over us.  Any day you grow above the Word, you have grown above God. 
32.        Verse 19 of chapter 5- first Thessalonians.  Quench not the Spirit.   Despise not prophesying.  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.   Abstain from all appearance of evil.  
33.        And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.   Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.   Brethren, pray for us.   Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss.”
34.        This holy kiss is a holy handshake: salute every brother, every sister with a holy handshake.  But some foolish people will misinterpret it to their own destruction.  As the Apostle of Christ called to serve here in Nigeria, I am telling you the interpretation is brotherly handshake.
35.         Kissing a woman that is not your wife is potential fornication.  There is no way you can kiss a woman that is not your wife without having urge in your heart.  You have defiled that woman.  You have defiled yourself.  Don’t try it.  It is ungodly way of salutation. 
36.        Even in the advanced countries, they don’t kiss, they hug.  They hug people at their cheek but some foolish people will say we have ‘love Church’, ‘love ministry’; they start kissing women even their sisters, committing fornication. 
37.        Don’t try it, it is of the devil.  Let it not be mentioned among you as saints.  Don’t try it; it is the way of the heathens.  The way of the world, you are not of the world, you are not heathens.  You are born again people of God.  Don’t do it.  Don’t defile yourself.  Be holy for He that has called you is holy.  Don’t you know that you are all priests:  A royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people.
38.        Fellowship must be divine.  Fellowship takes place in the spirit; you can fellowship in the flesh without fellowshipping in the spirit.  That is carnality, God does not recognize it.  Fellowship takes place in the spirit that is why you can be dis-fellowshiped in the spirit, yet you remain in the fellowship in the flesh. 
39.        When you fornicate and you sit down in our midst, you know you fornicated, you know God hates it, you know the Church hates it.  Because it is one spirit, whatever the husband hates the wife must hate also. 
40.        You are dis-fellowshiped in the spirit; though you are here you are not God’s.  You are deceiving yourself.  Any single wrong life, any single lying, any single hypocrisy, God disfellowships you, you may be here, you are fooling yourself. Any single odds against your neighbor you are dis-fellowshiped in the spirit, you may be in the pulpit preaching, God is not interested. 
41.        That is why when He said here, if you want to give anything at the altar and you remember you have a little odd against your brother, drop it on the ground, go back and make it right. Come back and offer because He doesn’t want you to fool yourself. 
42.        That little odds, automatically cuts you off.  So the Church can be filled with people, having fellowship in the flesh but as long as God liveth they are cut off. Holy Ghost has helped us to worship God because we worship Him in spirit and in truth, because God is spirit and those that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.  Baptism of the Holy Ghost is the baptism of truth. Is that scripture? 
43.         First Corinthians chapter 12 read from verse 2 through 3.  Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.  Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
44.        Without the Holy Ghost no man can worship God and when you have the Holy Ghost, you can never call the things of God things of the devil.  Because when you do that you are calling God ‘accursed’.  The worst sin; the Bible calls it “unpardonable sin” and it can never be forgiven you until you make it right. 
45.        All these people that have spoken blasphemy against this body, they will never, never be forgiven in this world and the world to come no matter how they pray; until they come here stand before the saints and make a public confession because they committed sin against this body.  It is this body they must confess to, it is this body that must set them free. 
46.        I said I am holding God somewhere.  They remain cursed until this curse is removed. When you get the revelation of whom Holy Ghost is and how He works in you, how He works in His body, then you will know that you are indeed a spiritual temple where He promised to dwell and work in you.
47.        Then you will know that you are the house of prayer.  Why must you take the house of prayer and make it a cursed house?  Unless Holy Ghost is not there, for Holy Ghost will lead you to Christ and to the things of Christ.  You will hate what God hates and love what God loves.
48.        You that have been living in lying, lust, greed, backbiting, whispering; where did you get that from?  Where did you contact that spirit?  Is Holy Ghost the giver of such things?  Impossible!  And you will be calling Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus, you are not calling with the power of the Holy Ghost. 
49.        Thus, in preaching the word we are demonstrating the power of the Holy Ghost.  And when you are preaching it with the power of the Holy Ghost, it will be making great impact in the life of the hearer, because it is your life backing your word.
50.        The prophet said it is your life that will thunder out Christ or the devil, whatever you have must thunder out.  What if after preaching you see me lying, quarrelling, fighting, back biting, living false life, you will question the Holy Spirit that is preached. 
51.        If your pastor lives that type of life, the whole congregation will be the same thing for every congregation takes the spirit of their pastor.  That was why that little boy that came here, we saw Paul Okibe coming back again, reproducing himself in the life of that small boy: very proud, very arrogant. 
52.        We were asking him questions, he couldn’t answer.  “Leave this place!” He said, “Nobody should touch him”. “Take him out we don’t train people this way here!” 
53.        If you don’t respect me because I am under anointing, why not respect Me for my age.  That is how he is pastored and his pastor came, the same picture; the same picture.  That is why the Holy Ghost told us to have nothing to do with Paul Okibe for God has hardened his heart.  He is going to use him to show his people in the End Time message. 
54.        The same way the Holy Ghost told us concerning Chika of Aba Church; that has hardened his heart and is going to use him to show His power in this End Time; that man is a blasphemer. 
55.        That man called Chika is doing illegal business.  Don’t worry until he comes here.  I am respecting him.  I will continue to pray until God tells me what to do.  I am waiting for him and the same Paul Okibe, and he went home shamefully, and he said he is coming back. 
56.        I said to God be the glory, you will know who is who.  I know he is not coming.  Let us be very careful.  Amen.

 KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE WORD (2)
Ephesians chapter 5 verses 15 through 20.  (Eph. 5:15-20) “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
2.           How many are redeeming the time today?  They are living as if translation is not a reality; they are living as if they are living in millennium, pursuing the things of the world without restraints.  Some are deep neck in Jericho, in Egypt; some in Babylon, yet they don’t know and they are expecting translation in Egypt.
3.            How can you expect translation in Babylon?  Many of them in the End Time message are confused and the moment a man is confused, he is deceived.  The moment you are confused you are deceived.  You can never be deceived until you are confused. 
4.           Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”
5.           Singing and making melody in your hearts but some people say it is singing psalms and making melody in the Church, for that reason, they will quote Psalms 150, “Carry the whole instrument in the world into the Church.” But it is an abomination in the sight of the Lord. 
6.           You can beat any musical instrument in your house, you can beat it in a crusade to attract people, you don’t go beyond that.  It is not an act of worship.  Check your Bible.  Even in the Old Testament, nobody ever used musical instrument to worship God.
7.           When David used it in the Old Testament, he was using it for a revival meeting, when God did something. God killed Uzzah.  When they were carrying the ark of God out of the land of covenant, God struck Uzzah dead. the revival stopped in the land of Perez-uzzah.  Every one became afraid.  They took the ark to Obed-edom’s house.  They wanted the man to die but God was prospering the man because he was honoring the ark in his family. 
8.           They became jealous again.  They said, “We will go and bring it back”.  On the day they brought it back, there was another revival.  David was dancing and dancing until he became naked.  That was madness, but today some people will come to the Church, dance and dance, and they will become naked dancing like Cherubim and Seraphim. 
9.           Let me tell you in the End Time message, there is no place you will meet with the Pentecostals or the denominations, they are two parallel lines that will not meet at any place. Anywhere you meet them, stop and think, something has gone wrong. 
10.        If you meet them in your tithe, you meet them somewhere, stop there don’t go further.  If you meet them anywhere in your tradition, in your Church, stop.  Is in the Bible which you have crossed, we shouldn’t meet, the devil and Christ cannot meet anywhere.  It must be two straight parallel lines running into eternity. 
11.        That is why your life should not come there.  Jesus Christ said, “Except your life is higher than that of the Pharisees and the Sadducees you can never enter the kingdom of God.” 
12.        We shouldn’t meet anywhere. But today watch everywhere; it is this Cherubim spirit, Sabbath spirit, using of gong, cymbals, which is because of John Ogu carry-over.  Nobody stopped and examined the Bible to know if it was used in the Old Testament and to know how the Church practiced it. 
13.        From Acts of Apostles chapter one until Revelation, the Church has no time to beat that nonsense.  They had no time.  They were praying, singing psalms, songs, making melody in their hearts spiritually.  They were singing in the spirit.  They were dancing in the spirit.  Not carnal dancing like the Pentecostals.
14.         They carried Pentecostal spirit into the End Time message and that is why God ran away from them.  That is why the prophet said “He gave gifts to the pastor because the pastor is a member of the five-fold.  The pastor of every Church has the choice of the instrument that will suit his Church”.  He stopped there. 
15.        He didn’t want to lay a tradition because he knows one of these days, the Bride Ministry will appear and they will become the “WORD BRIDE”, they will go back to the Word and the pastor being a spiritual man will pick a spiritual instrument that will edify the Church. 
16.        Cymbals does not edify the Church, gong does not edify the Church, psalteries does not edify the Church.  All these gwom, gwom, gwom do not edify, rather you will beat and dance, and dance; and then you will start hugging yourselves and then you will be aroused, and you start caressing, committing fornication, in that order: Beat and dance away the spirit. 
17.        If a pastor is called of God and he is spiritual, prayerful, he will order for an old fashioned organ music and that organ will be singing nothing but hymns, psalms and melodies in the spirit because the man there must be a minister; there and then he is going to be used in order. 
18.        The Church is about to start by 8.30, the man will be here by 8. When he comes here by 8.00 he will start singing in the spirit with that organ.  Everybody everywhere will be listening to it.  Everyone singing and will be singing, the pastor, the ministers into the spirit.
19.         If he does not want to do it, he can stop the organ and then put one tape, the tape will be there, people will be coming.  It will be ministering to them; people will be coming.  It will be ministering to them before the pastor will come.
20.        But today they will eat, come here and will be beating kpokoro, kpokoro.  They will become musicians and people will be dancing. A little while, the pastor will come and be singing: “amen, amen, blessings and glory”.  Some men use the pulpit as instrument. 
21.        Come here and hit the pulpit; if you don’t faint, know that God is not here.  When you look at it, it is ordinary wood.  When you look at the ark of covenant it is ordinary wood, but touch it.  If you are not called, come here, it must be this missionary Bible placed here and the olive oil.  Come and preach. 
22.        We know where we are standing. You that go about beating all these gbodom, gbodom, gbodom; that is Cherubim and Seraphim spirit, it is Sabbath spirit.  If you want to organize crusade or convention somewhere, you can hire them so that everybody will gather when they gather.  You gather them and then minister the word. 
23.        But in worship service for saints, for believers you don’t use it.  You have any biblical standard, if you can support what you are doing with the Bible, meet me anywhere and show me. 
24.        From Acts of the Apostles, the Church was in plain view in the time of the prophets.  That is why in the book of Jeremiah chapter twenty-three (Jer 23) the Lord prophesied “woe unto pastors”.  That was the time there were only priests and not pastors, but as a prophet he saw the Church and that there will be foolish pastors that will scatter the Church without giving them the correct food, without visiting them but God promised that in the end time He is going to raise a shepherd here and He will gather His flocks and give them the right food, they will no longer be afraid, check your Bible. 
25.        They will quote Psalms 150, Sabbath will quote Psalms 150, Cherubim will quote, Odozi Obodo will quote; they are not even ashamed of themselves.  You know you quote more than those people.  You went to Sabbath (now talking to a brother), they will say “bring finger nail, bring private part, tie it together and put it in a bag”.
26.         This Message is a parallel Message with other denominations.  There is nowhere they can meet.  They are heading parallel to hell.  We are heading parallel to heaven.  It is two ‘H’.  Two by two preaching, even here in this Church when you were using gwom, gwom, gwom I was not here.  It was not helping you.  All that used it, did you use it in your Church?  Ok.  Is it helping your Church?  No Sir. 
27.         It doesn’t help anybody.  Your women will become carnal. Watch the Pentecostals.  All of them became children of Cain, even the instrument is of the devil.  The first people that produced it were the children of Cain.  Read your Bible, they brought it, artistes, they were the ones. 
28.        Thus, television is of the devil, cinema is of the devil, they are from the children of Cain. Theatre.  The Bible told me that they were doing it in theatre, stadium.  All of you will go there with John Ogu spirit, Christian Alowu spirit.  They tied all of you together, look at your belly dancing. One carnal man used to sing in my yard, “I am dancing in the Lord, Amen”. 
29.        I said of a truth you are dancing in the lord for every man has his own lord. the same way, every woman has her own lord.  I thank God.
30.        When the Church was running up and down because of persecution, who had time to learn how to play guitar?  Nobody. I see people in this End Time message; they behave as if this message came to them first. 
31.        Paul was asking the Church at Corinth “Were you the first Church that received this message?  Why do you behave as if you were the first Church?”
32.          Read Acts of Apostles from chapter one to the last chapter of Revelation, you can never see where the Apostles, their wives, go and check it, they married, dedicated their wives to God as children of God. 
33.        Whatever a child of God has, he dedicates to his God.  Nobody quarreled for drink or for dance. Who taught you how to dance?  Nobody quarreled over meat, over malt, over wedding gown.  Read that Bible. Is that not Church again? 
34.        But watch them, people will come from Aba, they will be asking: “Don’t you know how to dance?”  This one will come: “Are you with wedding gown”?  You will eat and drink.  The Church had no time for that nonsense.  They believed in wedding but they were looking at it from the angle Christ presented it:  The Wedding Supper of the Lamb which is for the glorious body which Christ is the husband.  That’s why they were struggling, purifying themselves, very neat.  But today you will put on a white garment yet the wedding is defiled.  And you know the wedding is defiled.
35.         Is Christ defiled?  “I am typing something”, what are you typing?  You are making drama, the Christian play.  The Church had no time for play.  Christ had no time for play, apostles and disciples were men of sorrow, persecuted and despised.  They were despised, moving from pillar to post. 
36.        Today we unite in marriage, unite in wedding, brother will borrow money, giving false impression; that is hypocrisy.  I will wed whenever God will give me money, I will wed and they don’t know that the Bible said, “owe no man nothing but love”. 
37.        Instead of you to help a brother to come out of debt, you will say, “Come, we will give you money. After you give us,” only to entertain the world. 
38.        Let me tell you one thing. You played hypocrisy and I forgave you that time because these things had not manifested that time, but if it is now, I will slap you before the whole public.
39.        Yes!  Any Apostle that cannot slap any man is not called of God.  Yes I hate sin.  I am a Nehemiah, I can kick you around. 
40.        Let me tell you one thing.  Be patient a little.  Living with borrowed uniform; be very careful, I want to speak a little now to expose your foolishness. 
41.        Roman Catholics are wiser than some of you here.  In my town, I have seen some CMS people, Roman Catholic people and many other denominations. Any time they are wedding, watch, in the morning the Mary League will come, carry the bride with their cymbals.  They will be marching to the Church, the boys will be clapping hands, beating band, following the man to the Church. 
42.        When the wedding is over, the reception will be in the man’s compound, now the best man will take umbrella, cover the man and the best lady will take umbrella, cover the bride and the flower girls, all of them they will be beating drum behind them. These people will be marching and they will be going home; others will be following. 
43.        Some will go ahead of time because the man is a poor man, the only thing he could afford was to borrow that wedding gown, borrow suit from his friend, borrow black shoe, one tie.  The bride will borrow high heel shoe, then off they go.  When you look at that wedding gown, it is always oversize, borrowed. 
44.        Wait, they are wiser than us.  A poor believer that has nothing to eat will go to his brother or friend, borrow V-boot, take one rope tie am “wedding”. Taking another Limousine, “My wife will ride this one and I will ride this one. take us to the Church.” 
45.        He has no bicycle tyre.  Even the money he is using was borrowed, he went and hired vehicle and that of his wife with air conditioner.  Hired for himself, hired for his wife, hired for the best man.  It is jubilee.  You are a hypocrite!  You are giving people false impression.  It is not your own.
46.        That was not so with the Church at the wilderness.  Read your Bible.  I said I am here, someone will soon marry here.  I will supervise the wedding from the day they married until he settles down with that woman, I will supervise it.  God helping me, that brother will be the happiest brother on earth.  You will see what godly marriage is all about.  It is not a burden but people make it a burden.  Make dress for yourself, make for your wife, make for your best man, make for this, shut up your mouth! 
47.        If this thing is good for preaching this word, see me here, if it is good for handling this word, for preaching Christ, if Christ is concerned in signs and wonders, see what I am putting on here, it is good for wedding.  If it is good for sitting in heavenly places with Christ, it is good for wedding. 
48.        You have no money to feed, you went and borrowed money, prepared suit over one thousand naira for best man. Some have two best men, select giant ladies, make uniform, select eight children and make uniform. After the whole thing you become very hungry, no money in the house, you incurred debt, you are belaboring Christianity.  You are making the word of God very difficult for people and the Bible says “Woe is that man, woe is that women who has sworn to make people to see the word of God as a difficult one”. 
49.        Jesus the Christ said, “Come, take my yoke for my yoke is light”, but today you are making it a burden, a very big yoke.  You are a Pharisee that gives another person a very big yoke on his neck and will not help him to lift it up. 
50.        When these people push you into debt, none of them will help you pay back the debt.  All of them will transform.  Watch, the moment you want to wed, your house becomes a palace, they will start saying ,“Brother  make red curtain, make red carpet, repaint your house. This chair is not good, buy new ones. You will go to the market, buy new ones and this women will come, look at the whole place and say, “I am the bride.” 
51.        One week, the remaining rice people ate during the feast is over, now trouble will come.  What I am addressing is a case.  It is what killed the denominations.  It is what killed Assemblies of God, killed many churches, it is what has killed End Time Message.  They brought tradition here, brought BMC idea into Aba Church.
52.        We have people in BMC, Sister Chinenye is here.  She spent many years there.  I preached in BMC many, many periods.  Onitsha presented me because people left them for Deeper Life, they held me responsible because I was a member of Deeper Life. 
53.        What killed them was marriage because they borrowed Assemblies of God’s way: you will fast for one week and dance for one week. After dancing, you make cake four steps, and for the crowd, five steps.  They will come and examine it well because they must be there.
54.         Even if you used five thousand naira, it must be there, even when you say “I have no money to borrow even wedding gown, I have my short sleeve, I have wrapper, they will say no, no, no.  It is typing something.  What is wedding dress?  Whatever you put on, on your wedding day is your wedding dress, but that white gown is a different thing.  It represents virginity of the bride, it represents beauty, it represents holiness.
55.         How many End Time marriage is holy when you have borrowed money in breaking the Bible, you have hired vehicles when you have no bicycle tyre. 
56.        You see why we must be very careful otherwise we perish.  Don’t say it doesn’t matter; it matters a lot before God.  All these things you say it doesn’t matter; these are the things that kill us. 
57.        A little while a woman will not rest in the house again, the man will not rest because they are owing many debts.  You have borrowed money to entertain the world, hunger is now starring you in the face.  You are a liar, you are a hypocrite, you gave false impression of yourself.  You have but it is not there. 
58.        This is why I am hated.  I love telling people the hard truth about life.  If you want to disprove me, disprove me by the word.  Can you tell Me that the apostles never married?  When Paul was defending his ministry “Don’t I have any right to marry just like the rest of the Apostles; Peter, John, James and the rest of them, does it mean that I and Barnabas alone are the only people that cannot marry?  We have every right to marry”. 
59.        So many married, they wedded when they were going with tattered shoes, tattered clothes, the world was not a better place for them.  Is that not Bible?  Have you not read it in your Bible that the Apostles were going about in tattered shoes, tattered dresses?  Being mocked about. To them the world was not a better place again and you will tell me they printed invitation for one thousand naira, for twenty thousand naira, they printed wedding invitation. 
60.        Some now go to artists like our pastor.  Pastor, you go to artist, “Make a special design. I will hold my wife this way, take a photograph, draw it this way, make am fine, fine.  I will invite the whole world.”  That is compromise.  It is compromise.  Say I said so. 
61.        You want the whole world to come and you want their gifts.  I am looking forward to the day wedding will become wedding of the bride, no more the wedding of the Church.  That is what I am expecting.  We will make it at our own level.  What will put you into borrowing is when you want to entertain the world.  We know ourselves here.
62.         I am looking forward to a day when that money for invitation would be taken to buy one bag of rice, keep in your house for your wife.  We will tell you, “Brother don’t go. I am going to Aba on a missionary trip.  If I get there I will announce it in the Pulpit that you are wedding on Thursday.  When I go to Enugu I will tell them.  My pastor will go to Lagos and he will tell them.  Don’t print invitation.”
63.         The bride must know herself.  When the Bride recognizes who she is, they will then rejoice with the people rejoicing and will weep with people that are weeping.  What concerns your brother concerns you, what concerns your sister concerns you. 
64.        Not when your brother is moving this way, you are moving the other way.  That is evil spirit.  You are not in the same body; you are not in the same spirit.  Somebody must be outside. 
65.        Worldliness in the Church; that is why I am hated. I love it.  As far as God is pleased, I am pleased.  I want to see the simplicity of a Believer that is lacking yet.  It is lacking yet. 
66.        Go to Port Harcourt, Igne and Ifeanyi will corrupt the whole people there.  Go to curtain man, he will give you N15,000.00 you will pay back installmentally.  You will go there and mortgage your wife in the factory so as to pay debt. 
67.        Be careful, anything that you don’t have, you cannot give it to anybody.  You give what you have cheerfully without grudging but today people will organize and invite the whole world, put one person in the front. 
68.        One day I will kick away the basin, I will push down some doctrines of the End Time Message.  Some will gather bureau the change people, “I will give you rice and soft drink, you will give me money, bureau the change not wedding. 
69.        If a brother is coming to salute you, you are expecting an envelope.  What type of envelope?  My duty is to go there and shake you and say, “God bless you”.  It doesn’t go beyond that.  If you sell yourself to provide food, that is your business.  Did I ask you for that?  The Holy Ghost gives us power to witness the truth.
70.        Acts of Apostles chapter 1 from verse 8 (Acts 1: 8).  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
71.        Is that in your Bible?  How many even received this power before becoming witnesses?  How many ever wedded according to the instruction given in the book of St. Luke chapter twenty-four that you must wait when you receive this Holy Ghost, you will become a witness because when you are witnessing, signs and wonders will be following you. 
72.        William Branham had Jesus.  Jesus was wroughting miracles in his hands.  The Apostles had Christ; they were signs and wonders in his hands.  I have Christ, He has wrought signs and wonders in my hands here and beyond this place, in public places.  It didn’t start here. 
73.         I will share a little testimony now because when you hear over thirty years, that is why I want to bring out some Pentecostal experience, I want you to understand why the devil wanted to tie me there and why God said no.  It is not for them.
74.        A big pastor there said he is bundle of gifts but he doesn’t allow us get him so that this thing can be used.  This man is more than seventy-five years and he is still a pastor.  This has been his testimony till this very day.  I use to see him from time to time. 
75.        I will give a little testimony now.  There was a time I organized a little revival meeting in my family when I was in Deeper Life, one Christmas period so all of us slept outside.  Bro Mike was there, Bro Mike are you here?  Am I telling lies? 
76.        In that revival meeting in my compound, all of them, all the members of my family and beyond came.  All of them gave their lives to Christ the level I knew that time.  We prayed and sang, read the Bible and preached but there was a ceremony, traditional ceremony that was coming up the following day.  We call it “Ofor”.  Brother, you were present complete the testimony. 
77.        In the night of the revival meeting when we were praying that Ofor that was to take place in the following day is supposed to be with fowl.  The man in my family is my father’s elder brother and he was to conduct the ceremony.  He had already gone to the market to buy the fowl that was to be used for the ceremony the next morning.  During the prayer session that night, my brother (The Son of Man) said that the only way he will know if what we are doing is real is if the fowl that was to be used for the Ofor dies before the next morning, and we said . In the morning, my father’s elder brother called my father and told him that the fowl has died and that fowl was not ill when it was bought the previous day even as at that night of revival”.  .
78.        See what happened, I challenged all of them.  I told them clearly that though they lost their cock, they still had their mind in performing that thing. The women all agreed that they were not going to prepare food for them because according to the way they do it, the women will prepare food, the men will kill their goat and cow and both the men and the women, the children will gather.  They will eat together in the open place. 
79.        That night all of them agreed that the thing would not hold in their family.  So they were asking me about the cock they purchased, I said, “Well you will untie all of them tomorrow morning but if you have in mind that by tomorrow morning you will perform this thing anyhow, that you will do it secretly behind the backyard.  I am going to pray here, all of you that have such mind, I am giving you a sign.  Tomorrow morning, if your fowl remains alive, know that God has not spoken to me.”
80.        There was another thing that I told them concerning one of our daughters that was coming from Egbeke in Rivers State for that very ceremony.  I told them she would not be here.  The Lord must meet her on the way.  
81.        While she was coming, she had a motor cycle accident. Her wine broke into pieces. Her own fowl died. That morning, there was noise everywhere in my family.  All of them were coming out with dead fowl everywhere. 
82.        That was how my father started going to Deeper Life.  That was how all of them in my family surrendered to God.  But along the way, some foolish people stumbled them.  God will hold them responsible.
83.        Before then, I told them that they are going to scatter because of money. I warned bro Mike not to follow them that they were using that money very wrongly, even the pastor was pestering him here.  I know he is owing you.  Come here, is Raymond not owing you?  About how much?  Brother replied “About N400.00. 
84.         So they fought in the Church because of money openly.  Money they were extorting from peasant farmers.  So they stumbled my father for since that day, my father had never gone to any Church. 
85.        The reverend father came from Roman Catholic, my father told him plainly that instead of him to go back to Roman Catholic that he will become a heathen and die as a heathen.
86.        You see God preserves His gift in a man.  There is a reason why I continue sharing this testimony because some of you have been to my hometown. Some think what is happening started today.  Far from that; that is why from time to time, I will share some testimonies and allow you to go and verify. 
87.        Holy Ghost gives you power to witness. When you preach this word and nothing happens, you don’t have the power of the gospel.  That is why in first Corinthians chapter 4 verse 20, Paul was telling us that this message should not be preached by mouth alone but by the demonstration of the power of the Holy Ghost. 
88.        The prophets said, “Preaching the Word is casting out the devil”.  When you preach this Word without healing the sick, casting out demons, you are presenting the word of God in a very imperfect way. 
89.        When Jesus commissioned the seventy, He said “Go and preach the Word, heal the sick, cast out demons”. 
90.        They came back and said, “We did not only preach the Word, did not only heal the sick, did not only cast out demons but the devil obeyed our voice”. 
91.        Is that not Bible?  When He commissioned the twelve, He said “Preach this Word, heal the sick, cast out demons”. 
92.        Thus, when you preach this Word and you did not heal the sick, you did not cast out demons, you have not presented the fullness of God to the people.  How can a sick man listen to the word when he is under torment?  When a man that is in sorrow is not comfortable, how can he listen to you?  You must heal the sick, cast out demons. 
93.        The prophet said, “Preaching the word is scattering demons”. 
94.        The Word heals; Bible told me in Matthew chapter 8 (Matt. 8:16) “When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 
95.        All that was sick and possessed of demons, He healed them all by His word.  He sent forth His word; His word healeth them, because there is power in the Word.
96.        The Word has water, the Word has blood and the Word has spirit.  Come that I may wash you with pure water which is my word. The Word has water, the Word cleanses.  The Word has blood, He purchased the Church with His precious blood and it is the Word, He has spirit.  The Word He speaks is spirit, the Word has life and it is life. 
97.        Search the scriptures for in it you think you have eternal life.  They are they which testify of me, Jesus Christ the Word becoming flesh.  The Word made manifest. Amen.

HOLY GHOST AND HIS NECESSITY
Acts of Apostles chapter 4 verse 31 through 33 (Acts 4:31-33) ” And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. 
2.           And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that aught of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. 
3.           And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.”
4.           People mistake witness for preaching.  Witness is not preaching. You witness something you were present when it happened. But you can preach on something you heard and believed it.  Your Bible will teach you that.
5.           The Bible said they witnessed the power of the Lord.  Because they were witnesses, when they were there praying, He descended fully.  So when they were telling people they were telling them purely what He promised had happened.  
6.           We were there, that is why the apostles were able to say “that which we have heard, which we have seen, we handled with our hands, we declare unto you; testimony of a true witness”. 
7.           In the message Bro Kelechi preached called “Perfect Guide”, before somebody can guide you he must not be a novice.  He must be somebody that knows the way very well.  He knows where there will be trouble on that way. He knows where there is mountain, he knows where there is danger, he knows everything. 
8.           He is not the one that will go along the way and a little while be asking people I hope we are not missing the way?  That man does not know the way: “I think, I think, I think.”
9.           Any apostle that doesn’t know when a man is filled with the Holy Ghost is not called of God.  He made himself an apostle.  That was why Peter was able to say “Seeing that these people have received the same spirit which we have received who will prevent us from baptizing them? 
10.        He saw another people and said, “Have you received the Holy Spirit since you were baptized”?  They said no.  These people were baptized in the right way.
11.         The Bible told me that he laid hands on them and they received Holy Ghost; because he is an apostle, he knows what the Holy Ghost is all about, he has it, he knows when you get it.
12.         It is not tongue, you may not speak in tongue, you may not prophesy, you may not interpret, yet the evidence is there.  Paul saw another people, an apostle also “Have you received the Holy Ghost since you were baptized”?  They said no, no, no.
13.         He said “Why?  Which baptism did you undergo?”  “That of John the Baptist.” He said “Forget about it, that was baptism of repentance that is pointing you to Christ who was to come. Now, He is here and you must take His Name.”  When they obeyed, he laid hand, the promise came down. 
14.        Have you received the Holy Ghost since you were baptized sir?  Not I think, not I should think, not I should feel.  You don’t know.  It is a definite experience because it is a feeling. 
15.        When it happens you will know, no man will teach you that.  No!  And when it happens you will be a witness. 
16.        No man will preach it out of you.  Until you answer I won’t tell you what to see (to the brother that was asked if he has received the Holy Spirit.
17.         When you received the Holy Ghost you will know.  You see what happens here.  We are children of God, we are one family, we have one spirit. 
18.        “Brother, since you were baptized, have you received the Holy Ghost?  Yes (brother answered).  He answered yes.  No angel from heaven or prophet can preach it out because it has become a direct revelation in his heart.  Have you received the Holy Ghost since you were baptized?  Yes Sir. 
19.        That is why I love this Church.  I love this brother so much.  A man that is certain that he has received the Holy Ghost.  No man can preach it out of him.  Even if angels come down from heaven, he is sure. 
20.        Don’t make a mistake in what he is saying because every man knows how he met God.  Some people can receive Holy Ghost before being baptized; I am telling you the truth.  Some can be baptized before receiving the Holy Ghost.  God has the way; the way He deals with individuals.
21.         There is a level you will receive God with your heart, God knows the condition you find yourself in to give you that.  That will be keeping you and watch that will lead you to believe every word of God, and when you believe every word of God it must manifest by living the life of Christ. 
22.        THE HOLY GHOST IS GOD TABERNACLING HIMSELF IN A MAN.  SINCE YOU RECEIVED HOLY GHOST, IS YOUR LIFE BEARING WITNESS THAT YOU ARE LIVING LIKE CHRIST?  BELIEVING THE WHOLE WORD OF GOD, LIVING BY THE WHOLE WORD OF GOD; HERE IS JUDGMENT HOUSE. 
23.        That is why Bible said it must start with us and if we are judged here, we won’t be judged with the world.  Don’t say anything to please anybody. 
24.        Don’t be afraid of anybody, nobody can do anything to you.  You are not worshipping any human being.  You are worshipping your God. 
25.        My question is this: “Since that day you received Holy Ghost and Holy Ghost is Christ Himself tabernacling in you, living the life in you,  have you seen yourself living a consistent godly life, obeying the whole word of God as a child of God, Christ manifesting Himself through your life? 
26.        I love this brother because when a man is certain no man can take it away.  This is exactly what God is demanding from everybody.  You must come to the knowledge of God to the level when you will be a Believer in dungeon, in wilderness, in captivity, anywhere you see yourself, you are a Believer all through.  .
27.        I told you when I came here, I said “Here is a sincere man, here is a Believer”. To the level he has known, he has obeyed.  But there are people, the level they have known they have not obeyed one day. 
28.        They carry it, intellectual faith and it is manifesting in their daily lives. Hallelujah!  The Holy Ghost gives us power to preach the word of God. 
29.        First Corinthians chapter 2 from verse 1 through 5 (1Cor. 2:1-5) And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.   For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 
30.        And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.  And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:  That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” 
31.        When Paul was certain, that enabled him to have boldness to start preaching the word with power of the Holy Spirit because he was sure how he received it.  It was not the wisdom of any man.  No.  It is God Himself that led him that way so he was not ashamed of declaring to the people. 
32.        First Thessalonians chapter 1 verse 4 through 5(1Thess. 1:4-5) Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.  For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.” .
33.        You see how the word went to the people?  Not by mouth alone but with the power of the Holy Ghost, the message was preached.  . This is why the prophet had the revelation.
34.         If you have no Holy Ghost you have no right whatsoever to preach the word lest the devil will destroy you.  People that disobeyed this Bible made shipwreck of their ministry.
35.        Ephesians 4 verse 7 through 13 (Eph. 4:7-13) “But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ…. .
36.        Nobody in God’s Church is without a gift.  But it is given to you according the measure of your faith. 
37.        All of you cannot be pastors, all of you cannot be evangelists, all of you cannot be prophets, but God will be using all of you in diverse ways, your own may be hospitality, your own may be visitation to the sick, your own may be sweeping this place; in many other ways. You must have a gift. 
38.        Some may have gift of wisdom, gift of knowledge. But you can never be empty.  Nobody can be idle here.  That is why you must be very, very careful in that vocation whereby you are called to the one hope of your calling.
39.         A Believer’s calling is a very high and holy calling.  That is why you should be very careful not to take the grace of God in vain.  .
40.        Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.  (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 
41.        He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
42.         And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
43.        Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
44.        Who gave these gifts?  The same man that descended to the lowest parts of the earth; He was the same that ascended unto the heavens that He might fill all in all and when He descended in the spiritual form, He poured down these gifts to unite the body to Himself, to perfect the body until we all come to the unity of the faith unto the perfect stature of the perfect Jesus. Then you are called little Jesuses, little Christs. How many caught the revelation? That is why I love this Church. Now you may wish to read at home because I want to beat the time.
45.        Romans 15:5-6, John 17:20-23, Acts 4:1-4, Acts 6:8-10, Romans 11:11-12.  Amen.
46.        God’s gifts are many in the Church.  They are many and varying and by one spirit they can be operated for it is one spirit that poured those gifts. Though they are many yet from one Spirit. 
47.        Romans 12 read from verse 6 through 8 (Rom. 12:6-8) Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering:
48.        or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness.  .
49.        Diversities of gifts to different people, diversities of operation yet by one Spirit, one God, in one body amen; if you want to minister, there is nothing wrong in it.  The Bible said “wait for your ministries, you want to teach wait for it, you want to minister wait for it.” 
50.        Is that in your Bible?  How many are waiting for it today?  How many are waiting for it again.  Some people behave as if this is not Bible again.  They will repent today, tomorrow they become pastors, some of them will not even know that pastor had to tarry for some years.
51.        Three and half good years with Jesus Christ; is that not scripture?  Paul had to tarry for almost three years. Some don’t tarry again.  Moses tarried for forty years.  Why must people tarry?  When you were in the world you were drinking sin like you were drinking water. 
52.        Drinking false teaching, defending false teaching, when you repent, you can never get rid of them in one year.  How can you spend twenty years in sin and get rid of it in one year.  That is why conversion is after repentance.  Conversion doesn’t take place immediately you repent. 
53.        Read (Acts 2:38) that is repentance, sorrow for sin.  (Acts 3:19) for conversion.  Repent and be converted that your sins will be blotted out.  Until you are converted, your sin remaineth in you.
54.         Until you are converted, black becomes pure white, having white as its nature, no longer black and nothing will make it black, conversion has not taken place. 
55.        Moses spent forty years in Pharaoh’s university.  The Bible said as he was in Pharaoh’s house, the spirit of knowledge, he learnt the art and science and psychology and philosophy and magic of Egypt because Egypt was one of the seat of knowledge cradle, of course civilization started in Egypt and extended to Babylon.
56.        The first writing in the world started in Egypt that was ‘hieroglyphics’. They made the first calendar, it extended to Babylon, they were writing ‘cuneiform’.
57.         God allowed the people of Israel to go into captivity, first exodus in Egypt second exodus in Babylon to learn knowledge, to learn how to fight war, to learn philosophy and psychology. 
58.        When God arrested Moses, He took him to the wilderness for four years.  Washed out that nonsense so that it will not be by his power nor his might but by the spirit of God he will lead the people out.  The same way great Saul of Tarsus went to university of Gamaliel learnt theology for three good years when God met him. 
59.        He took him to Arabia and flushed that nonsense out for three good years.  You must tarry with God for years so that God will overhaul you . God will not change your zeal rather He will now use that your zeal in the right way. 
60.        The same zeal Paul was using to persecute the Church as a Jew in the phase of Judaism, that same zeal was what God used in Paul to preach His Kingdom. 
61.        (1Cor. 12:7-10) “But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
62.        It is given to every man to profit withal. 
63.         For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
64.        To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
65.        Is that in your Bible?  Did it bring confusion?  That is why you must be what God made you to be.  Don’t go from one duty post to another.  You will spoil many things.  If you have been called to be a worshipper, be a worshipper; if you are called to be a pastor, be a pastor.
66.        Look at plenty gifts.  If I am to desire a gift I will desire wisdom.  It is the greatest of all gifts I have ever seen, but people don’t desire it.  If you don’t have wisdom, you will not know how to desire any spiritual gift so wisdom should be your foundation for you to operate the gift of God wisely.  Many lack wisdom. 
67.        Wisdom demands that when you see anything coming out, don’t call it any name until it comes out fully but a foolish man will start calling it different names. By the time that thing comes out fully, it may beat his imagination by being a different thing altogether.  I hope you are in the spirit?  Every man has a gift. 
68.        Verse twenty-eight.  And God hath set some in the Church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 
69.        How many has read this scripture before?  How many really understood it?  If people understood it why all these hissing and quarrelling? I had to wait for my ministry.  You see some are given gifts of administration; government to govern the Church. 
70.        These are gifts and in that Church God gave some prophets not one, apostles (plural).  Why is one causing problems for some people when they should be expecting more to come, is it not in your Bible?  Is it contradicting Ephesians? 
71.        (Eph. 4:11) said prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, but only one with apostolic sign was vindicated in the Church and people are talking mess, blaspheming the Holy Ghost.  What if four will arise tomorrow?  Is it not Bible?  Do they believe the Bible?
72.        Some people have grown higher than God; they have grown higher than God.  They can now preach to God.  If it is possible they will remove this portion from the Bible.  Why?  Because of covetousness.
73.         Because of covetousness “How can I allow a pastor to come up when I am here”.  They don’t want any rival.  That is why a foolish man came here said “Okechukwu are you secured?  You think you are secured?  I am helping you so that what happened to me will not happen to you, before you know it they will take your pulpit”. 
74.        I said look at this man.  What makes him a Believer is pulpit.  “I will be there, I will not allow it”.  Uncalled men, how did they start?  When they gather people they start a Church.  They become pastors.  Is that how pastors are ordained? 
75.        Read your Bible because you gather some people together then you become a pastor over them.  Ninety-nine percent (99%) of the people in End Time message are uncalled men in the pulpit. 
76.        That is why they are making a mess of it.  By the time we finish today, you must call A, ‘A’, call ONE, ‘ONE’.  One plus one must be two.  It can never be four whether I believe it or not, whether you believe it or not, one plus one must be two. .
77.        You can never grow higher than your pastor; you can never grow higher than the doctrine in your Church.  The moment you grow higher than your pastor he profits you nothing. 
78.        You will leave him because he profits you nothing.  You will leave him, but because you are with him you will never grow higher than him and you are taking his spirit. 
79.        This ministry is still going on.  Discernment has not come yet.  The word is still discerning.  We will know that Holy Ghost that you have today.  We will see the life of Christ in you.  Keep watching. 
80.        Because we are now in a different realm, we have gone into a different realm because there is something in evangelist, there is something in apostle, in teacher, in pastor. 
81.        I have been pampering the Church.  I have been pampering the Church, I have been pampering the Church. Hallelujah! Amen.
