1
BE A GALLANT SOLDIER
Brethren let us give a big clap to Almighty God. We thank God for what He is doing in the midst of His people, to make sure the Word of Salvation will reach its finality, that is what
God is doing from age to age.
2.           If you can cast your mind back to the time of Israel, immediately Saul failed by disobeying a simple instruction given to him by God which God predicted in the time of Moses concerning Amalakites, for what they did to the people of Israel on their way coming back from Egypt.
3.           Then God recognized their sin and said, “A time shall come when I will wipe off all the Amalakites for they are sinners,” and the time fell into the time when Saul was the king of Israel.
4.           A voice came to him through God in the temple of Samuel, “Saul, rise up now, go to the Amalakites, destroy everybody for they are sinners”.
5.           King Saul went, did as it pleased him and came before God in the person of Samuel and said, “I have do as you have commanded me”.
6.           Samuel came and said, “What am I hearing at the back of your house? The voice of the cows and sheep and you are saying that you have done according to the commandment of the Lord?”
7.           King Saul replied, “I brought these things down for the sacrifice.”
8.           Samuel asked him, “Has God any pleasure in sacrifice than in obeying His word?”
9.           Thus, God made a change after Saul had failed God. God plainly told Samuel “Why are you weeping and sorrowing for Saul, for I have rejected him from being king over Israel. Now, go to the house of Jesse, I will show you a man I have chosen after My own heart who will obey and do everything I will command Him.”
10.        The Son of Man: Who was not even married.
11.        Apostle Kelechi: He was not married. Then, he was a little kid, a little child, the last of his parents. He was inside the bush taking care of the sheep then the message came after they had watched the rest of his brothers, they were unable, they did not meet God’s requirements, then David was called and was anointed with God’s holy oil.
12.        The scriptures say that the Spirit of God left Saul and rested upon David because he was chosen by God.
13.        It is very, very important that we pay strict attention to what is going on. If you fail to pay attention, to pay heed, you are just wounding your conscience.
14.        “Why You Must Be Mindful Of The Words Of The Apostles And Prophets,” preached on 23rd November 1996.
15.        How many years ago? 22 years ago.
16.        Page 46 verse 14. However, remember one thing: I have been sounding this warning to Elders, the Lord knows the heart of all the ministers. The Lord knows when your ministry is not helping anybody again. If you come to a point where your ministry does not help anybody, get ready to bear the consequences.
17.        Moses came to a point where his ministry does not help anybody. The Bible is saying that we should build up our most holy Faith and I am saying that we are not going to stop at building it, let us also preserve it.
18.        Do you know that salvation is fragile? If you are not careful, you will not preserve your salvation for twenty-four hours. If you are a careless Brother or a careless Sister, your salvation can last for only ten minutes in a day.
19.        Before you know it, you will be crying, weeping and before you know it, the thing is finished. The following day the thing is finished. Another day, the same experience and that will tell you that you are a careless believer.
20.        A real sincere believer that is careful does not fall at a particular point two times. I know that you must by and by fall but do not fall at a particular point twice. When you fall do not consider where you have fallen but consider where you have gotten up. Amen.
21.        I know that you must by and by fall but do not fall at a particular point twice. If that happens, you are a foo! So God always make changes from time to time.
22.         When it was time for Elijah to be caught up in the air, God told him “Go, I will anoint Elisha to be a prophet.” He makes changes, he chooses people that will continue the work when the former ones are getting older and out of the way.
23.        Thus, it is not abnormal if these things happen in our midst, that is how God does His own thing.
24.        1 Tim 1:18-2:1 Now, Timothy, my son…
25.        Now, our Pastor Chizoba and the rest of the Pastors God ordained and placed in all the Local Assemblies that are involved, where their ministers have left the Faith and are old using their hand to reject the office God has given them by not being very serious and careful, now God has called thee.
26.        Now, Timothy, my son, here is my command to you: Fight well in the Lord's battles…
27.        Fight well in the Lord's battles. This is a command God is giving to all of you young ministers. He said; “Fight well in the Lord's battles”.
28.        Just as the Lord told us through his prophets that you would.
29.        Just as the Lord told us through his prophets that you would. All these young ministers, God had already known them, talked about them just like in the message titled wheel upon wheels, when Pastor Wisdom was at the age of 5 or below.
30.        Our brother Chizoba, from the time God brought him here, raised him up, everybody saw what God is doing in his life. I have never seen him quarrel with anybody both in his work place and in the fellowship.
31.        He has never disobeyed any of the Elders or brothers whoever it maybe. When his elder brother was alive, we have never received any report against him on disobeying his elder brother or insulting the wife of his brother.
32.        The Son of Man: not even for one day.
33.        Apostle Kelechi: now his elder brother is late, he is still taking care of that family and no evil report has ever been heard. Now God is saying that he should fight his battle very well as God told us through prophecies.
34.        Cling tightly to your faith in Christ…
35.        Hold tightly, cling tightly to you faith in Christ. St. Paul while talking to some local assemblies said, “Not everybody has the knowledge of God.” Not everybody have our Faith.
36.        As we are sitting down now, not everybody has the Faith of Christ. So cling tightly, hold it firm in your own Faith which you have in Christ. Every one of us sitting down has his or her own faith just like in the world, there are a lot of faith in the world but the Almighty God told us that the Bridal Faith is the most holy Faith. Pin your Faith in Christ.
37.        When you came to me and asked me certain questions, I said no, God has made you a Pastor over Onitsha and in this Bridal Faith we do not give someone message. What you will do is go on your knees and pray I will help you in prayer for it is not an easy task.
38.        Jesus Christ told his disciples that if they arrest you and bring you out to the court, He said, “Do not hesitate on what you are going to see, for at that moment you appeared there, what you will say will be given by the Holy Spirit, the boldness and the utterance which you will use to speak until they all marvel.
39.        Just like Stephen who they murdered, certain people gathered and said a lot of things which Stephen did not say.  They brought Stephen out, the scripture said that the Holy Ghost rested on Stephen and he continued to speak and speak until his face became a face of an angel.
40.        On that note he said, “Ye stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted?”
41.        I say relax your mind, trust in God He must help you for God cannot give you salt to sell in the market and he will send rainfall to you.
42.        William Branham said that God has His own way.
43.        “and always keep your conscience clear…”
44.        Always keep your conscience clear, have nothing against any human being. We know many are stubborn by nature, you cannot correct them, you cannot instill discipline in them, they must resist at all length but have this at the back of your mind, for the Son of Man told us some years ago “From henceforth, whatever advice you will be given, whatever ministerial you will be preaching, you preach it to the elects only.”
45.        and always keep your conscience clear, doing what you know is right. For some people have disobeyed their consciences and have deliberately done what they knew was wrong.
46.         As long as the Spirit of Christ is in you, your conscience is alive. Then it said only do that thing that is right for some have disobeyed their consciences.
47.        Watch all these Pastors, they disobeyed their consciences. How do you want God to speak to you? He will come and talk to you in your conscience and you are the one that will hear it loud and clear. That you heard that the Holy Ghost spoke to Peter and said, “people are waiting for you, go, fear not I am the one sending them”.
48.        Nobody heard it was Peter that said the Holy Ghost spoke to him. He heard it plain and clear and he went out boldly fearing nothing. So having conscience, some have disobeyed their conscience, they know that thing they are doing is wrong, their conscience condemn it.
49.        “Brother, the way you are behaving as a minister is wrong. As a Pastor you are not taking things seriously, as a Pastor, you have separated your congregation, you have people you favour and the people you do not favour. It is wrong, do not do it”.
50.        The Holy Spirit will be in their hearts telling them they will just ignore it. And when they ignore it, what happened? They deliberately did what they knew was wrong.
51.        It isn't surprising that soon they lost there is faith in Christ after defying God like that. (LB)  
52.        Immediately you deny your conscience, let me tell you, if you are sleeping in the night, you are having a quiet time or in the afternoon, you heard a voice in your heart saying, “Rise up, pray, rise up study”.
53.        Is it the evil spirit that is telling you that? If these ministers that are deposed now can tell themselves the truth, they will bear witness that God has been speaking to them severally on this matter.
54.        Having disobeyed their conscience, the scriptures says, it is not very easy. Immediately they disobeyed their conscience, they loosed grip from the Faith of Christ.
55.         It isn't surprising that soon they lost their faith in Christ after defying God like that.
56.        It is not surprise thing when you disobey your conscience on things you know you have no right as a child of God to do, as a human being.  Nature teaches us that, but you ignored your conscience and do them.
57.        It is not surprised that their Faith in Christ was lost, they cannot grip it again. Just as the voice said “Have you ever heard from the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation where any man of God failed and come back and get the Holy Spirit?”
58.        I have not seen, rather the scripture says “They have crucified Christ the second time making Him a public shame. Bringing them back to repentance is highly impossible!” for it would have been better they have not know the way of truth than after knowing it, they fell away.
59.        “Examine Your Life In The Light Of The Truth You Have Received,” preached 24th March 2015 at the Son of Man’s family altar page 62 verse 19.
60.        But they will be going to Church trooping in and out yet they will never believe anything that is taught there. It is creeping into our midst gradually. That is why I am raising this alarm. When we are saying these things, do not look at Deeper Life, CMS, Catholic Church and so on. Look into your midst.
61.        Are you among the churchgoers, who do not attach any form of importance to all the teachings we receive?
62.        Have you seen it, those that do not take our teachings seriously as something that is important for the scriptures says as little children desire milk from their mother, so we shall desire the word of God if we obey. See it as a very important matter.
63.        They do not attach any importance to all the teachings we received. Am I among this group of people one that goes to fellowship but do not attach any importance to all the messages we received.
64.        Just as we are hearing this one now? It is not only sitting down here, the way you will know that you understand what God is talking to you is when your life changes for the better.
65.        Watch through your life for God told us earlier that He will visit all the ministers in the fivefold. He visited the Deacons and left only two, He visited the Bishops and left only two and one is just hanging by now.
66.        He told us that He is coming into the fivefold. Did we hear it? Yes sir! Now, it has fallen on the Pastors. Why is God raising alarm? Why is God putting us in remembrance? It is in our message.
67.        He said the only reason why He puts us in remembrance is the only way to cause us not to err or if at all we have erred, we come back to Him.
68.        As I thought on my ways, I looked into the way I am walking as a minister, then I recognized that what I am doing is not right, is not good as a minister, as an Apostle, as a Pastor, as a child of God for the scriptures says “those things that happened among the heathens should not be mentioned once among us”.
69.        In some areas, some of our ministers have lacked respect. It is just like our brother Dike, I went to Pastor Chizoba’s office one day, I heard a man complaining bitterly concerning a work our Pastor was not disposed to do that work, he just pointed him to his brother (Dike) for him to do the work.
70.        They scheduled the time the man will come and carry the work. When the man came, the work has not been done and this man was complaining bitterly.
71.        He said, “Mark C, if not that you are the one that pointed me there, I would have done something to this young man.” There is no sign of Pastorship in him, no sign at all. I was there and the thing pained me.
72.         The young man went out, I told Pastor Chizoba, “Listen, do not use your hand to rope yourself in another man’s problem, for some people may not listen to you, they will just use Police and arrest you. Don’t try it again! Since you know he cannot do that work and at the appointed time, he cannot refund the money, why must you direct somebody to him? You are taking a big risk!
73.        So we must be very, very careful. Does it agree with your conscience, ministers, hearken unto the warning given to you. Amen.




2
ALWAYS CALL YOURSELF TO
ORDER WITH THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST
The message said that it is not surprised for such people to lose their faith in Christ but they will be going to church, trooping in and out yet they will not believe anything that is taught there.
2.           It is creeping into our midst. God saw this thing that it is creeping into our midst gradually. Are you among the churchgoers who do not attach any form of importance to all the teachings we have received? Am I among this group of people? This is what you should ask yourself.
3.           One that goes to fellowship but does not attach any importance to the messages received? I am raising alarm so that you do not think that God is talking about people outside this faith he is talking about us. Who is God talking to? He is talking to you and i. the whole places God spoke about in the scriptures is for you and i. forget about those people it does not concern them. God is using people to fulfill all the prophesies in the scriptures both the good and the bad ones it is you and I that will fulfill them. Find out the side of the scriptures you are fulfilling. If you do not develop the fear of God as a child, if you do not understand the teachings of Christ in your infancy you will have problem while growing up.
4.           Yes these young Pastors, you are the infancy of your ministry, understand the word of God, have the fear of God in you, then you will not have problem on your way.
5.           The Son of Man: Give me a little audience as I read this message presented to me.
6.           Time for Final Selection,” preached on Wednesday 28th November 2012 page 57 verse 15.
7.           The Son of Man: How many years ago? “6 years ago”.  
8.           Begin at infancy to develop leadership qualities. If I am asked to choose a ministry, I will not choose singing and dancing, rather I will choose the word. I will choose to be a minister of the word.
9.           Concerning the apostles or other ministers, I want to tell you that the indictment I gave you recently because while I was having my own dream, I never knew my wife was also having a dream and my time coincided with her own.
10.        I withheld my own while I captured her own. I narrated it to Apostle Kelechi this morning. If you watch me, when I entered into the fellowship hall this morning, I was sad. My face was gloomy because of my encounter with them.
11.        Throughout that encounter, Pastor Dan was lying flat on the ground, Pastor Christian was lying flat on the ground, Pastor Thomas lying flat on the ground and I spoke to Apostle Kelechi concerning the three of them. “Does it mean Onitsha can stay without a Pastors? Only God will tell.”
12.        Remember, 6 Years ago.
13.        “Something is wrong with Onitsha and their Pastors from time to time. No local assembly changes Pastors more than Onitsha because of gross manifestations of great shortcomings.
14.        YOU ARE NOT A PASTOR OR A SHEPHERD UNTIL YOU BECOME THE PASTOR OF THE WORD OF GOD. IF YOU ARE A PASTOR OF SOCIAL ACTIVITIES, YOU BETTER PRAY FOR YOURSELF FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NOT EATING AND DRINKING. WHAT MAKES A MAN OF GOD SOBER IS THE ENTRANCE OF THE WORD OF GOD IN HIS HEART.
15.        WHAT WILL DETERMINE WHETHER YOU MAKE FULL PROOF OF YOUR MINISTRY OR NOT; ONE IS THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE MINISTRY YOU ARE IN. TWO; YOUR VISION CONCERNING THE MINISTRY. MANY DO NOT HAVE THE UNDERSTANDING FOR THEY LACK THE PHYSICAL, LACK THE TECHNICAL KNOWHOW OF THEIR CALLING IN CHRIST.
16.        THIS IS A TECHNICAL FAITH AS WELL A  SPIRITUAL FAITH; YOU MUST HAVE ALL. I HAVE TOLD YOU THAT THE EXTENT YOU GIVE YOURSELF TO THE WORD OF GOD IS THE EXTENT GOD IS GOING TO USE YOU, NO MIRACLE THERE.”
17.        “Time for final selection page 64 verse 29;” that which you cannot comprehend through the word, God will reveal through the spoken word. That which you cannot comprehend, He will reveal through dreams. And by these three, if you are intelligent you will address the truth. It is a horrifying thing for one to experiment death.
18.        Not ordinary death but eternal death, that is, eternal separation from God.
19.         I say that it is a horrifying thing. When God said that the Salvation of every minister is tied to his office, do you think that God is crazy? Tell me how you can make shipwreck and still be in paradise? The moment your ministry is faulted, you are faulted.
20.         Note it, 6 years ago!
21.        I do not know how a student no matter how humble he can be, that fails in the WAEC exams will secure admission into the university. Is it possible? You see this boy, he is obedient to his parents, but he failed in the exam. Will he because of it secure admission into the university? There can never be any admission in failure into any university. When you have failed, you have failed.
22.        AT THIS POINT WHERE WE ARE WAITING, GOD IS USING THIS OPPORTUNITY TO WATCH. HE IS WATCHING OVER THE WHOLE ASSEMBLIES NOW THAN EVER; WATCHING THE PERFORMANCES OF MINISTERS. EVEN IN THEIR HOMES AND IN THEIR PRIVATE CLOSETS, GOD IS WATCHING. THIS IS THE TIME FOR FINAL SELECTION”. NOTE IT SAYS THIS IS THE HOUR OF FINAL SELECTION.     
23.        The Son of Man: 6 years ago. No precaution was taken by any of them. 2012 to 2018 is equal to 6 years ago. No precaution was taken.
24.        Apostle Kelechi: We have a message that said that you should be mindful of the words of God spoken against you. We have a lot of messages God has given to us to check us in this Bridal Faith, we do not police anybody around. But we have a policeman which is the teaching, the doctrine God has given to us.
25.        Where these three Pastors lied down flat, there was no effort to rise up. Some years ago, we came down to Nsugbe, the Son of Man was indicting us, rebuking us because of the behavior of Pastors, not praying for the rise of Pastor Dike.
26.        We all went into prayer praying, instructing him, telling him but no way. I personally called all of them including my twin brother Amankem, I said, “What are you people doing, can’t you people rise up? God has rebuked you people, indicted you and has made allowance for you to come up but none of you is rising up.”
27.         You cannot blame God in any mistake of humanity. That is why the book of Proverbs says; “When people spoil their ways, they turn round to blame it on God”.
28.        Tell me where the hand of God comes into this matter? God wants all of us to succeed in all our endeavours and we must succeed by all our obedience to His word. That is why God sent Judea from Judea to Bethel.
29.        Nobody told him that God called him. He received the voice, he received the instructions, God told him everything and he went there and compromised, revealed the secret of his success, that God said he should not eat, he should not drink, he should not go through the road from where he came.
30.        He went there, got the promises and compromised his conscience, immediately he died. We must be very, very careful in this Bridal Faith, young and old.
31.        “Examine Your Life In The Light Of The Truth You Have Received,” page 69 verse 1. Re-examine your life in the light of the truth you have received. It is not good for anybody to be forgetful of the things that pertaining to him.
32.        Now, we are talking about spiritual life and spiritual death. We gather here every Wednesday’s and Sunday’s to hear from God how we should have eternal life. Do not forget yourself, do not forget the hour you are living in.
33.        Always call yourself to order with the message God gave us. From time to time call yourself to order. 
34.        That is why St. Paul said, “I have the right to do anything I want to do but not everything is profitable unto me, not everything is convenient for me to do.  For that, I bring my body under subjection so that after preaching to others, I will not be a cast away.”
35.         Yes man is subject to mistake but God will rise him up. The scriptures says a righteous man, one that fears God can fall seven times and rise seven times, but a wicked person will fall and remain there.
36.        This is why every opportunity God gives us here on earth is to better our lives. If there is any mistake I made yesterday but could not correct it, I can correct it today, that is when there is time. That we are living on is not for enjoyment or to mess up ourselves or hardening on in iniquity. No.
37.        We are living on so that we can purify ourselves more and more because as you grow, so wisdom and understanding comes into you. These young ministers, pay attention. As you grow in the ministry which God has committed into your hands, He saw other young ones, He has this confidence that you must succeed.
38.        He said as you grow, wisdom and understanding will come into you, then you will repackage yourself and know how to possess your vessel unto honour. You have to know that it is not everything that you will show interest in.
39.        You have to know that not all that call themselves children of God belong to God. Some are here to test your Faith, if you will follow their footsteps so that you will miss eternal Life. It maybe your wife, it maybe your children, it maybe your husband, it maybe anybody.
40.        The devil does not fear anybody. If the devil was not afraid of God by coming into the temple to tempt Job, will he be afraid of you? Then you repackage yourself and know how to possess your vessel unto honour.
41.        Thus it is very, very important as children of God and as it has become clear to us that the faith we are in is not the faith you will say “Let us examine ourselves.” No.
42.        What you should do is to re-examine your life. What I should re-examine is my life to know whether my life is in line with message I have received. If you do not know what you believe, if you do not know what this faith is all about, you will not know when you have fallen away.
43.        The Son of Man: A mad man heard gunshot and took to his heels. These ministers that were deposed, we used to gather at the house of the Son of Man,  and there has never been any day we went there without Him opening up to indict us of our wrong behaviours, of our non-challant attitudes.
44.        He will call names, point it to us. Just like if you bring out a tick from the body of a dog, the dog will think that you pinched it. You have to drop it on the ground for the dog to see the tick that was removed from its body. That is how the Son of Man has been doing to all of us.
45.        Still, we will go home not knowing it did not enter anywhere for if the word entered, there must be change. You must know when you are in  the Faith before you can recognize when you have fallen away.
46.        You should know when your prayer life is dwindling because you are in the Faith. You should know when your prayer life is on the rise because you are in this faith. If you are in this faith, you must know when your life gives you joy. If you are in this faith, you must know when your spiritual life does not give you joy.
47.        Even if you get angry, you will be troubled if you have the Spirit of God in you, you will be seriously querying what is happening in you, you will be convinced that all is not well within you.
48.        The Son of Man: If it is not so to you, you are not a child of God, you do not have the spirit of Christ. You will be feeling discomforted because you have not yet attained that which you want to be, that you are drawing backward and  you will be feeling angry.
49.        Examine yourself from time to time and know if you are in Christ or not, whether man or woman.  The scriptures say that if that spirit that made Christ to resurrect from the dead is in us, it will make us resurrect also.
50.        From the time the last the Apostle died, nobody has the spirit of Christ upon them again. They do not know what it looks like. It was going on until William Branham appeared; pointing people back to the vessel where they will meet Christ.
51.        We continue until Christ appeared in his day again through the preaching of the word. For the first time in our midst we heard it through prophecy, through speaking in tongues and interpretation. In that speaking in tongues, we do not know what it means. In the interpretation God called us “My people.”        
52.        The Son of Man: And it did not come from The Son of Man, not even the interpretation.
53.        Apostle Kelechi: No sir! Both the word and the interpretation did not come from The Son of Man. The word was preached, the anointing rested on the wife of Bon Diuka. She spoke in tongues, the anointing rested on Okey Nwankpa, he interpreted it.
54.        The joy was so much that we looked at ourselves, “So, we sinners that God is calling My people.” Now, from time to time sit down, young men in our midst, the youths coming up, desiring the sincere word of God that you may grow thereby.
55.        If you watch plantain or banana, when it is growing up to maturity, you will see another one coming up from the side. It is its nature, that is how God made it.
56.        That is why He told the people of Israel, “Teach these words, give them to your sons and your son’s sons, let your sons son continue teaching their own sons continually. It is very, very important brethren that we pay serious attention to these messages.
57.        “Examine Your Life In The Light Of The Truth You Have Received,” page 75 verse 13. When a serious-minded student is displaced from his position, he will get worried. You will get worried. When you will be praying to displace more people and move up, you are suddenly displaced from your position, and you remain happy, such a person is not a serious-minded student.
58.        The Son of Man: And can never get his former position again.
59.        That is the way it is with us because we are heading to perfection. We are climbing looking for higher ground every day until we get to the level we will get to where there will be no fear anymore, no more doubt, then you stand there because you have gotten to your destination point.
60.         Once doubt grips into the heart of anybody, he loses balance of where he is standing in this Faith. Because you are the one that allowed it. What are you doubting for? Could you imagine this Faith that is open, this Faith, the whole supernatural occurrences are real.
61.        The Son of Man: doubt is visible and invisible sign of unbelief. If you have been in this Bridal Faith so long and you are doubting, you are doubting your own existence that you are no more on Earth.
62.         But if where you are, there is still doubt and fear as to whether you will make it or not, and you are comfortable when you have not cleared the fear, you have not cleared the doubt, it then means you do not know what you are doing. You do not know what you are doing. If you do not know when you are in God, you will not know when you have fallen away.
63.        And that is why this Voice is going forth. If you do not know when you have entered into Christ, you will not know when you go out. You should know what it takes to come into Christ and what it takes to go out of Christ.
64.        The Almighty God told us that entering into Christ is not just like a door, it is not easy to enter and come out freely like that. And many of us have forgotten the warning in Ephesians chapter 4 verse 20 that says, “Grieve not Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”
65.        Nobody falls out of his position without the Holy Ghost talking to him or her. Watch every misbehavior, you will hear a voice warning you ahead of time in you but you neglected it. If our brethren had taken up to their challenge, they would not have allowed Satan to pull them down. I do not think what is happening now will happen to them now. 
66.        We have ministers coming up and they will take their positions. But when they say no, God will say no also. Because when you come closer to God, God will come closer to you. You walk contrary against God, God will walk contrary against you.
67.         What it will take you to enter into Christ is the implicit obedience to the messages you have received  and at the same time, what it will take you to go out from Christ is your disobedience to the messages you have received. That is all. Is there any other thing? There is no other thing.
68.        When you obey, you will be in Christ. When you disobey, you will be out of Christ and that is the time your enemies will go after you because they know you are no longer protected.  The scripture says that he has left his refuge.   
69.        The Awful implications of removing your eyes from He that has called you to Glory,” page 25 verse 13 preached on Sunday 14th August 2016.
70.        We do not have any fellowship in Aba again and we will never have. It is all over for Aba and Onitsha is now the target. Elders know this truth, I do not hide My feelings before them.
71.        One step is left before you and you know it. The Elders held a meeting, if they fail to do what they are supposed to do, definitely, God will do what He has purposed to do. Nothing will restrain Him. 
72.        Apostle Kelechi: Amen. Yes if they had done what they supposed to do, automatically God will change His mind.  The scriptures says when God purpose to destroy a nation or individual because of their wickedness and iniquity and non-challant attitude, overlooking what they are supposed to do, and God warned them seriously and they change their mind and come back to God, God will also change His mind concerning the punishment He has meted out for them. But where they did not, God will carry out the punishment.
73.        The Son of Man: When Aba repented, God removed their ministers the whole Pastors, overhauled everywhere and gave them a new Pastor. A young man, a student, a bachelor and he brought Aba back to Christ. Amen.
74.        Apostle Kelechi: Examine Your Life In The Light Of The Truth You Have Received,” page 81 verse 5.  What is your testimony before God? What is that thing you will remember in your life and you will give God the glory? Is it you implicit obedience or your disobedience to God. Your obedience is in your hand.
75.        The same way, your disobedience is in your hands. The way you want it to be is exactly the way it is going to be. If after hearing the Word, you decide to throw it away, it is in your hands. On the other hand, if you decide to attach importance to what you have heard, it is also in your hands. Let it be known to you that there is no other opportunity.
76.         A time is coming when you will hear your last Message. A time is also coming when I will hear My own last Message. The next thing you will see is eternity.”
77.        The Son of Man: Bro. IK Ezindu, have you heard it? It is not a threat, it is plain. AMEN.

BE DIVINELY CONNECTED TO GOD
Random Comments from the Son of Man,” volume 1 preached 25th September 2005. Page 15 verse 20-27.
2.           Note it, 13 years ago.
3.           I gave you a charge to go home and read OUR LINK, how many read it? I know you can recite the contents of the book. Now, as many that obey that command if you actually discovered something that helped your faith more and met the demands of the hour we are in, show by raising your hand. You read it you saw something that helped your faith inside it and something that meets the hour we are in, indicate!
4.           Is there any reason anybody can give for not going through that Message titled OUR LINK? Tell me, what is the Spoken Word? What does it take to break God’s command? What does it take to be a rebellious man or a disobedient fellow? Is unbelief a big thing?
5.           Suppose the Lord will say now, those that have read this book according to the command come over with the Son of Man, those that refused to read, go over there with Pastor Dan, will God be unjust? What if He says I should do it now, do you think the Lord gave us the command in vain?
6.           God commanded you to go and read the book; can God give an empty instruction? What if I open something now and read something you are guilty off and I ask you to get out will God be unjustified? Like the Pastor like the congregation.
7.           Pastor Dan do you aim at laying a good example to your flock or a bad example? If you do not obey the Voice of God, how can your flock obey your voice? I know I gave you that assignment or are you not a part of the congregation? Or you mean the assignment will be too much for you. Or he that commanded you to read that book did not know that he gave you that one?
8.           If the pastoral work is too much for you it then means you are about to leave this Faith because I will give you more including the ones you are handling before. I think I know what I will do. I will tamper with your business a little for it will help you; and you madam like husband like wife, what effort did you make? Even to put your husband in remembrance you cannot do that because you did not read and you saw no reason why you should read. Where then is the fear of God in the heart of His children?
9.           In other words, we only fear God once the Shekinah Light comes down in our midst. Once you see the Shekinah Light everybody will begin to shake, but few days after the whole thing it will vanish. How do you want me to believe that you really know He that is talking to you? How can you convince me that you know the Voice you are hearing even which many of you heard in your own privacies before you identified with this Faith?
10.        Many heard this Voice before they identified with this Faith. When they came into the Faith, they heard the same Voice. Thus, it was no longer a strange Voice to them; it is a Voice they are familiar with...
11.        The Son of Man: For they are divinely connected.
12.        but to see the personality became a problem to them but talk of that Voice, it is distinct in their ears. In other word, it is not a new Voice. How Am I sure you are in the Faith by revelation, did God make any exemption in that order?
13.        Apostle Kelechi: this is the way we worship our God. There is no other way God will know you are obeying Him if not obeying His instructions. If He calls you to stand up, stand up. He says “sit down,” you sit down.  
14.        The Son of Man: it is a fearful thing for one to face judgment in the hands of Almighty God for what will testify against you is already in your hand for He will wreck up evidences against you which you cannot deny.
15.        Romans 1:18-20 But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, evil men who push away the truth from them...
16.        what made them evil men is that they pushed away the truth from them.
17.        For the truth about God is known to them instinctively; God has put this knowledge in their hearts.  Since earliest times men have seen the earth and sky and all God made, and have known of his existence and great eternal power. So they will have no excuse when they stand before God at Judgment Day. (LB)
18.        Romans 1:18-20, For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness…
19.        You see why they are in judgment? Because they are holding the truth in unrighteousness. They  know the truth but they do not obey God. That is why the anger of the Lord comes upon anyone who knows the truth, he holds the truth but he is not obedient to the truth. God is saying that you are an unrighteous man, a wicked man.
20.        Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: (KJV)
21.        “My Salvation is now in my hands,” volume 2 page 39 verse 73; “Please take note of where we are now. The reason why the wrath of God will fall on them they know the truth but they are holding it in unrighteousness. Why is the wrath of God coming to them? Is it because they do not know the truth? No sir! They know the truth but they have fragrantly decided to disobey the truth and yet keep on hanging in our midst echoing “Amen” on things that do not even sink well with them.
22.        “Random Comments from the Son of Man,” page 24 from verse 5, There is one I came across and I recorded it. I called it Brother Ferdinand’s prophecy. Brother Ferdinand preached a Message in this Faith: ‘Be very careful about influential men in the Church. People that are very popular in the Church that can easily win the hearts of the Brethren in the Church. A day is coming when all influential men will leave the Faith for God can never use a popular man in any revival.’
23.        Check Scriptures. Aaron became so popular among the people in the wilderness until he caused trouble that took him out of the ministry. Watch Miriam. Miriam was a great singer; she was very popular until she made a shipwreck.
24.        In another Message titled: ‘Lo, I Am With You Always,’ The Lord said, ‘Note it in your jotters or in your hearts that big names will not make it in this faith.’
25.        We heard this frightening voice yet we cannot stop and think. Is it because your name is not mentioned? What if God will use you to fulfill it? It is because you are yielding towards it.
26.        I have come to the realization that God will not use a righteous man to fulfill a wicked thing rather God will use a hypocrite, a make-believer numbered among the mixed-multitude to fulfill everything that is ungodly. A righteous man can never fulfill a wicked side of the Scripture or prophecy.
27.        When God prophesy an evil thing, He knows where an evil man is. He knows where an evil woman is even if the person is not among His people He will bring one in from outside and use him to fulfill it.
28.        Almighty God told us that He can use somebody to achieve His purpose after which He will dump him. If you are a minister in this Faith that statement alone should give you concern as you will be moved to ask yourself: why did God co-opt me inside this ministry? Am I in this Faith to help Him do something and He will drop me on the way or am I in this Faith  to be a co-labourer with Him unto the end and receive the reward? I have told you to be very careful for we are in a dangerous ministry.
29.        Apostle Kelechi:  Proverbs 16:4-5 The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. (KJV)
30.        God can never use the righteous to fulfill evil things. He made everything for Himself, even the wicked for the day of evil.
31.        “My Salvation is now in my hands,” volume 2 page 45 verse 92; A word, assignment given to Pastors and other ministers. It says Pastors, I am giving you an assignment and the rest of the ministers if you are what you claimed to be, you do not need to go far to get the message it is now in your mouth, it is now in your heart, it is now in your mind, it is now near you, the word of life which we preach.
32.        We ministers do not need to go far, this assignment is what God has given to us. If our Pastors paid heed to this instruction, our Deacons and Bishops have paid strict attention to this voice, I do not think what happened today would have happened.
33.        He said, “Pastors, I am giving you an assignment and the rest of the ministers if you are what you claimed to be, you do not need to go back to get the message, it is now in your mouth, it is now in your heart, it is now near you the word of life which we preach.
34.        How to know when the devil starts working against you. God said I should know when the devil is working against me.
35.        My Salvation is now in my hands volume 2 page 61 verse 67.  People hate us and we hated them badly, we were ready to give fire for fire no room to consider human weaknesses, no room to accept apologies, no room for I am sorry, no room for self realization because nothing mounts pressure on the individual more than evil conscience, evil heart.
36.        When the devil seals your heart, he pressurizes you to be doing things at will. Let me tell you number one reason how you will know when the devil has started working you will be losing your temper. Instead of you to be the controller of your temper, your temper will now be controlling you.
37.        My wife Chioma, you are listening, pay serious attention.
38.        The Son of Man: Period! It will lead the person into serious mistakes. I spoke to a heathen yesterday in your presence and you heard his reaction. He accepted he must change completely. He accepted that he has quick temper.
39.        Apostle Kelechi: That is true sir! He even said, “Daddy, you are beginning to change my life. I could not believe myself again, it appears every day I come near you, you are changing my life”.
40.        Now we in this Bridal Faith, watch oh that man is not in the Faith but he met our God who has been telling us how we should know when the devil is working against me or against you.
41.        He said, number one is that you will be losing your temper, instead of you being the controller of your temper, your temper will now be controlling you. What is more once your temper starts controlling you, your mouth remains open, demonstration starts and there can never be any good in transgression for the wrath of man can never work out God’s righteousness.
42.        If you are angry at what God did, you are angry to your own hurt for it can never work out repentance or change of mind or show you the way to come out of where you are. Has it ever happened? Can a man work out God’s righteousness in anger? It has never happened.
43.        Those that gladly receive the word are those that serve God’s interest. The way you receive the word of God will decide the way it will work in you. If you receive it with wrath, it will manifest wrath, receive it with joy, the heart will be filled with joy because there is an over flowing joy in your heart any time you do the will of God. Is it a lie?
44.        If you are a seed of God, any time you do the will of God there will be an over flowing joy and it reduces the risk of heart attack.
45.        The Son of Man: You will sleep well, sleep like a new born baby.
46.        The greatest heart attack is the one people inflict on themselves by disobeying God’s instructions.
47.        The Son of Man: Sure!
48.        Disobey God’s instructions and get heart attack to yourself.
49.        The Son of Man: That is if you are a seed of God.
50.        I call it self-inflicted heart attack.
51.         The Son of Man: But if you are not a seed of God, it makes no meaning
52.        That is why all that God healed from their heart attack, God said “go and sin no more, least the worst sin will befall you”. Glory be to God in the highest.
53.        Lean not on Your Own Understanding,” part 1 preached on Sunday 1st May 2015, page 41 verse 11. There is no sign God has not displayed. In the heavenly realm, we have seen signs. On earth, we have seen signs. The climatic change is a sign. This rain we have experienced today, it is not falling within its due time.
54.        This is the rain we expected between February and March. Remember, this is May which should be the peak of the rain. So, it is a mark of the climatic change. God is behind every change in the atmosphere. For there is nobody that can change nature if not God.
55.        THAT IS WHY ALL OF US THAT APPEARED IN THIS WORLD, OUR ADAMIC NATURE, SIN TAKING CONTROL OVER EVERY BEING. MAN BY NATURE BECAME A SINNER. IT BEHOOVES ON GOD TO CHANGE THE NATURAL MAN. FROM NATURAL TO SUPERNATURAL. THIS IS THE ESSENCE OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST.
56.        WE ARE WORSHIPPING A SUPERNATURAL GOD AND THERE IS NO WAY A NATURAL BEING CAN FULFILL THE SUPERNATURAL DEMANDS. FOR A NATURAL BEING TO FULFILL SUPERNATURAL DEMANDS, HE MUST BE TRANSFORMED WITHIN.
57.        HE WILL BEGIN TO REASON SUPERNATURALLY. HE WILL BEGIN TO THINK SUPERNATURALLY. HE WILL BEGIN TO ACT SUPERNATURALLY. AND WHEN SUPERNATURAL MEETS WITH NATURAL, HE BECOMES AN ODD BALL. HE IS GROSSLY MISUNDERSTOOD. HIS WAYS, HIS THOUGHTS, HIS IDEAS DIFFERS FROM THAT OF THE NATURAL MAN.
58.        THE PROBLEM WE ARE HAVING IS THAT WE ARE TALKING TO NATURALS, NOT SUPERNATURALS. A NATURAL MAN CAN NEVER UNDERSTAND THE THINGS OF GOD FOR THE THINGS OF GOD ARE SUPERNATURAL.
59.        A NATURAL-MINDED FELLOW UNDERSTANDS NOT THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT FOR THEY ARE SUPERNATURALLY DISCERNED. AND THIS IS WHERE WE ARE HAVING PROBLEMS. WE SEE BUNCH OF NATURALS SITTING DOWN IN THE CHURCHES, FILLING THE BENCHES.
60.        YOU THINK YOU ARE ADDRESSING SUPERNATURALS LIKE YOURSELF, ONLY TO DISCOVER AT LAST THAT YOU ARE MERELY TALKING TO NATURALS.
61.        A NATURAL-MINDED FELLOW CANNOT UNDERSTAND GOD. FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND GOD, YOU MUST HAVE THE MIND OF GOD. THE SCRIPTURES SAID, “WE HAVE THE MIND OF GOD, WE UNDERSTAND ALL THINGS.” IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE MIND OF GOD, YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND GOD.
62.        HEAR ME VERY WELL, THE WAYS OF GOD ARE TOO HIGH AND THEY PASSETH ALL HUMAN UNDERSTANDING. HUMAN UNDERSTANDING MEANS NATURAL UNDERSTANDING.
63.        Apostle Kelechi: Amen. We thank God for what is happening is for our own good. Every movement with God is for the betterment of the elects.
64.        The Son of Man: this is the much we will take for the Sunday school. You now ask me if this is Sunday school, what you handled in the morning where do we place it? What do we call it?
65.        Well, Call it whatever you want, whatever you like, whatever you are inspired to call it. We invite Bro. Ben Okezue the Evangelist to the pulpit.
66.        Today na today, we want to equip the newly ordained Pastors and at the same time equip the congregation to get ready for a change that has taken place. We are moving on, a change has been effected in the leadership.
67.        When there is a change in the Pastorhood, there must also of a necessity be a similar change in the fellowship, in the listeners, in the worshipers. You cannot stay in the old ideology to welcome the new message, no!
68.        Begin now to adjust or be shown the way out. God said to Joshua “as I was with My servants, so shall I be with you. Only be courageous and do the work”.
69.        SO AS I WAS WITH THOSE MINISTERS THAT REFUSED MY INSTRUCTIONS FOR WHICH CAUSE THEY MADE A SHIPWRECK SO SHALL I GIVE YOU A BACKING AND YOU WILL SUCCEED. ONITSHA WILL NO LONGER CHANGE PASTORS AGAIN. AMEN.   




SECTION THREE
BY
EVANGELIST BEN OKEZUE



4
THE LORD IS GREAT
We should not have the need of changing Pastors but we should have a steady Pastor who is steady with the word.
2.           Every minister must be a minister of the word otherwise, the Holy Ghost cannot use you. He cannot please The Son of Man neither will he make any impact in the flock.
3.           I told my brethren at Obosima household if you clamping down on the flock telling them to obey you, how can the flock obey you when they have not seen any word of God in you. The flock cannot obey you until they see Christ in you.
4.           Nobody should come to the pulpit to impose respect on the flock, impose believe on the flock. Until the flock has seen Christ in the minister, they will not respect him, they will not follow him, they will not obey him, they will lose confidence in him.
5.           In one of our messages titled, “Ministers Meeting,” volume 1, God said and I quote, “A Pastor is like a driver that is driving on the highway. If he is driving recklessly, all the passengers will be afraid for their soul is at stake. They will be finding a way to jump out to save themselves.”
6.            When a Pastor loses confidence in the flock, his ministry is finished. Any moment your flock loses confidence in their Pastor and do not move by his leadership and by his word, God has left that Pastor. Remember, when God leaves your Pastor, leave him. When God leaves a minister, leave him for what makes him a minister is God in him.
7.           The Son of Man: and I know where the problem starts, both Apostle Kelechi, Amankem, Chime, Ojiakor, Ben, Dan. As many as are here, you know where the problem started? It started with Christian Dike who told great lies against God. Thank god Brother Goddy is alive.
8.           That God spoke to his hearing and called him Pastor and we were of the opinion that we should not be quoting him as a Pastor.  When God has already ordained one.
9.           David Inyama imposed one on us. A time came when we elevated that one to a Bishop we said, “Ok since God has given us a Pastor who said God spoke to him directly, let us prove him.”
10.        That was how we brought Christian Dike to the pulpit so that we will not be disobedient to Heavenly voice. As we journeyed along, it became clear that he was a misclaimer, very covetous. Apart from being covetous, he is lazy, he is filled with hate, he could not even tolerate the brethren. So the thing became a very big problem.
11.        What did we do? We removed him from being the first Pastor and then installed Pastor Dan who we know is a social man. Instead of staying without a Pastor, Christian now has to assist. Christian also became angry, instead of giving him a helping hand, he was demonstrating against his removal, looking for a way to frustrate him. There was struggle for leadership.
12.        Then when we saw what was happening, we were not pleased especially when Okey Nwankpa left, Nnamdi Ogbogu left. We excommunicated the two, we were watching. Then I used Thomas Eze to be the Pastor in-charge of the children’s class.
13.        I never for one day placed him as a Pastor in Onitsha. It was as a result of the misbehavior of Pastor Dan his inability to grow in the knowledge of the word that made me to remove Thomas Eze from the children’s class and place him behind Pastor Dan to be the second Pastor.
14.        Christian felt comfortable on the seat and then continued in his wicked devices, which was consolidated by his wife.
15.        Let me tell you something go to the message “Standstill and I will show you the Word of God,” No minister ever makes a shipwreck without the wife contributing 98.5%. Check it there!
16.        Because if the wife is spiritual, even if the husband is trying to backslide in the heart, the wife will never permit it because she knows that she must be affected, her children must be affected, in the end there must be ridicule. Who will be ridiculed? Her family. I do not want to speak again.
17.         I AM OVERHAULING THE WHOLE SYSTEM. I WILL SOON COME TO THE ELDERS.
18.         Evangelist Ben: as the Lord called far back final selection, you know what is called final selection?                                  
19.        ‘Time for Final Selection,” page 42 verse 51. Do all things you are doing, He is there watching you, watching me.
20.        Whatever we are doing in this ministry, God is there watching us.
21.        Let me remind you if you do not remember God has left the stage He monitored us as human being like us, He has gone back to His original body, that is why He appeared in the fellowship watching everyone as we do things, watching your character, watching your behavior, your utterances, even in our homes monitoring all the things we are doing.
22.        The Son of Man: Sure! Before you lift up your phone to call My number, you will see me standing there. Even before you know it, before you finish pressing your number, your phone will ring.
23.        But if I notice you are just a mere make up, one is that it may not connect. The lines will be on you will be hearing switched off, not available, not reachable. He is right. I maybe reluctantly watching one thing or the other and ignore the nonsense.
24.         Sometimes I will tell My children, “Look at the person that is calling, don’t pick but go there and confirm.”
25.        They will go there and confirm is that person. I do not have any special ringing tone for anybody but there is no call that comes without The Son of Man knowing who is calling and I know why you are calling.
26.        There is something that has been happening in your house since yesterday, you know about it? Thank you, that one is just an example. He knows what is happening in his house. He needs not to mention names. If it has not happened to you this way, you will not know who the Son of Man is. But if it has happened to you, nobody will tell you to be afraid.
27.        Let us continue because we want to equip these boys. Do you know My reason for equipping them? If you do not equip them strongly, old, deposed prophets are likely to deceive them. They know the means they will use. I am telling you the truth.
28.        Now our Brother is running a business centre, all of them will be doing photocopy there, everything will be there. Thank you. They will be distracting him, bringing topics that do not exist. No!
29.        Rat does not eat the fish of a man while he is awake. I can never labour in vain. It is too late. You cannot refuse to sit and at the same time refuse to move, never! Nobody is indispensible. If you are not there, somebody is there. Somebody is even waiting.
30.        I remembered the day Pastor Dan was ordained here, he said, “Praise be to God, let nobody ever sympathize with anybody who is deposed. If this man never left, Dan would not have been a Pastor here,” which means he received the office gladly, testified of the goodness of the Lord for one man’s exit creates opportunity for another but if you know the value of gold what do you do? Preserve it, because once you are occupying a position, you are in a position to change the hand of God, to change the mind of God.
31.         Bro. Chigozie, stand up there! I saw you outside and was filled with pities and compassions. Brethren, look at the brother we prayed for last Sunday.
32.        Listen to me, he never lost connection with this Faith, he never for one day blasphemed. He calls me his father and that is what I am, and everybody in his line of business know me as his father. He is well-equipped, the family is mine like late Bro. Eze’s family.
33.        Do you understand what I am saying? You remembered the vision I had which I narrated here where the late mother appeared before me because of your son Uchenna, when I never knew that Uchenna was in Lagos and was having problem.
34.        The mother appeared, appealed to me to have mercy on Uchenna that Uchenna will soon be a great man and that is why the devil is fighting the boy. She said, “Remember the promise you made to me that you will never abandon my children and I told you how stubborn they are. Please bear with them Daddy, keep them together and alive for me.”
35.        The same thing that happened to sister Elizabeth Eze who equally appeared in that old fellowship hall under the flower, asking me the question why I decided to habour the most wicked woman in the fellowship and threw her out.
36.        I asked who could be the person. She said, “Don’t you see the wife of Nnamdi Ogbogu? Is there a woman on Earth as wicked as she is?”
37.        One who fed her houseboy with human faeces which you are witnesses and that was pure truth. I was there with many others, we saw the thing not story. She used spoon to put her faeces from the toilet to the boy’s mouth and used part of the faeces to splash on the body of her husband.
38.        I was affected with others, the husband ran to the fellowship half naked wearing only singlet. No bathroom slippers, nothing, nothing while risking his life.
39.        To marry a wicked woman is to shorten your life. Where is she? She died, Nnamdi died. What happened? This young man never committed any crime against us. I know his problem and I thank God the whole thing is resolved.
40.        He told me before he left why he should leave for if he should remain here, he might be compelled to do something that is against us in the attempt to posses his possession and I saw the whole thing as naked as it is.
41.        Many of you know the thing but today, there is no controversy over property again he has his share, all of them have their shares. If he wants to sell his own, up to him. He has his business and he has never for one day strained the relationship between us. He has been maintaining close gap.
42.        Recently he fell sick, I never knew until I saw  Ibekwe text messages but I likened it to be one Barrister Ibekwe I knew who had an encounter with me in a mechanic workshop. I did not want to go into that unnecessary discussion with that barrister, I never knew it was his own number not that of that man and that happened within the period I was destabilized.
43.        There is always a period when a man is destabilized. I was terribly destabilized, I was deadly. So, I really give God the Glory.
44.        He nearly died, he fell sick and was rushed from one hospital to another, finally to Odumegwu Ojukwu Specialist Hospital where he nearly gave up the ghost.
45.        But look at what happened. He called, I picked the phone. When he explained himself, I said “How did you manage to get my number? Why calling me, is it well at all?”
46.         He said, “When situations get worse, people will seek God. Daddy, I am not at home. I am in the hospital and this is what I am passing through”. 
47.        I asked, “What are you suffering from?” He started weeping. Within a short time, the sister called, she said that she is in the hospital. “See what I am passing through.”
48.        After the whole test he did, I instructed them to do further test. One Sunday, he brought the result and it was presented to Bro. Ojiakor, they saw a little thing in the liver and kidney but it is not enough to kill the man instantly which made him not to breath.
49.        Cholesterol level, normal; sugar level, normal. Everything normal.  It became clear that the devil was at work. I gave them charge. I told him that he is going nowhere. I commanded the sister to come to My place on Saturday with a bottle of live oil that I will consecrate it.
50.        While we were talking, his brother called from Lagos that he is coming. All for his sake. I consecrated that bottle outside, I  gave it to her and told her what they will do. I monitored it and she did it only two days, the whole thing gone. I assured him that he will appear before me to testify.
51.        I said, “If it is death, bye, bye to it, your time has not yet come. If it was prepared by someone, it is neutralized.  The enemy cannot take what belongs to God. I am here, fear not.”
52.        He started eating, for long he has not defecated, he defecated. For long he has not urinated, he urinated and his stomach flattened. He started sweating profusely and was demanding for food which before now he had no appetite.
53.        He told the doctor that he is going. He left the hospital and came down here straight away. Keeping him outside cannot meet my needs. I told Bro. Mike to bring him inside the fellowship because his life is a testimony.
54.         You see, any man that is with God needs not to be afraid. No matter how the circumstance may be, if you can believe doubting nothing, it shall be unto you according to your desire.
55.        With that olive oil, God performed miracle the doctors got astonished, even the sickness the doctor was curing, he does not know its name.
56.        Trust not in your physician, trust in God and you will live. You will hear another testimony but not today, let us continue with the word. I have two more testimonies that are striking. But there is one inferior. That inferior one I will share.
57.        What is that inferior one? The inferior one is that my wife told me what I will buy from the market, I went and bought all, both for my children and the ones I will send to her in Lagos.
58.         I entered a cyclist with all the things I bought to where I parked my vehicle. When I alighted from the motorcycle and packed all in the vehicle. While I was packing those items, I kept my handset on the bonnet of my car.
59.        After parking the items, I paid the motorcyclist, entered my vehicle and drove off. This happened in Woliwo, our lady of Fatima Church. I drove through Oguta Road. When I got to Fakamore Filling Station at 3-3 through Nsugbe Road, I passed through speed bumps on the road but my eyes never went to the bonnet, I never thought of My handset.
60.        I entered a filling station to buy fuel. I told the pump attendant to fill the tank let me buy bread for the children. I searched for my handset where I usually keep it but I did not see it.
61.        My two handsets were there inside one bag, my driving license, My voter’s registration card, My Id card. I was restless. The pump attendant never knew what I was passing through.
62.        I said “How manage, I am sure I saw the bag when I was packing the items I bought at Woliwo.” I said let me buy bread first. After buying the bread, I put it in My vehicle. After the boy finished filling My tank, I drove off.
63.        While driving out of the filling station, I looked at My bonnet and saw the handset. I was astonished. Look at the pack it was in. I said what! I looked at My bonnet before but I did not see the bag which made me to start tracing where I left it.
64.        Was it a ghost that kept it on the bonnet? I was sure that I looked round the whole vehicle but I did not see it, I did not see it where I normally keep it in the vehicle. I was trying to be restless before I said let me buy bread. But my major concern was the contents of the bag not necessarily the handsets, my ID card, my driving license, My voter’s registration card, all there.
65.        I was not moved to drive out of the filling station again after paying the boy because My mind was telling me that I entered nowhere. “Look at the bag I am talking about here.”
66.        I looked at the bonnet I used to drive through bad roads and gallops, My greatest surprise is that after driving through bad roads, I saw it on My bonnet. What I am wondering is, was it not this bonnet that I looked around before I went to buy bread? How manage it appeared there? Who brought it because I was not with anyone?        
67.        Evangelist Ben: Great is the Lord! We thank the Almighty for He has made it. Amen.

CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY
Please let me read a scripture to talk to our young ministers and after that I will turn to the Spoken Word.
2.           1 Peter 5:1-2 I WARN and counsel the elders among you…
3.           I warn and counsel the Elders among you. Elder is not a matter of old age, grey hair or whatever. Can you believe now that Brother Chizoba Ugwu the Pastor is now an Elder before God now? Our Pastor Chizoba Ugwu is now an Elder in the sight of God.
4.           I warn and counsel the Elders among you the pastors and spiritual guides of the church…
5.           The pastors and spiritual guides of the church; your major duty is the first spiritual movement of  the flock, life, action of the word.
6.           As a fellow elder and as an eyewitness called to testify of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a sharer in the glory, the honor and splendor that is to be revealed (disclosed, unfolded):Tend (nurture, guard, guide, and fold) the flock of God that is [your responsibility]
7.           Tend, nurture, guard, guide, and feed the flock of God, that is your responsibility.
8.           Do you know why ministers make shipwreck? Their eyes have been removed from their Guide. He that ordained them He is the source of success of every minister. If my eyes goes away from the Son of Man and His Word, I must surely make shipwreck because the condition, the work, the duty is to do the work spiritually.
9.           The young Pastors, ministers, you know that the Apostles of old took time to train, to teach their young ministers so that they would take a good pattern. Because the word of God from the Son of Man said, “Every brother is a minister.
10.         You must train yourself as a minister in this Faith because every brother is a minister, every brother is studying the message, so, if you are a flock, you will know when your Pastor deviated. If you are a flock and you do not know when your Pastor deviated, you are blind!
11.        Brethren, when a minister does not devote his life to the study of the word, he will not know when he fizzles out. You fizzle out when you have given out all you have, there will be no reserve for yourself.
12.        If you go to the message “Be Diligent to know the State Of thy flock,” God said “Every minister should have a reserve in him that will sustain him. Do not preach out all you have.”
13.         That is, if all I am going is to save a soul and there is no one to save me, I am at the verge of falling. The one that feeds the flock must have the food. If you do not have the food, will you feed the flock? The food must be stored in you and in I before you can feed and it will be stored rightly. It will be stored in the fear of God, it will be stored in the Spirit of God.
14.        You will allow the word into your arteries and veins before you can give it out to the flock. You will first of all place your family in order before you can help to place another man’s family. I will first of all place my family right before I can place another family right.  
15.        The Son of Man: You are a hypocrite!
16.        Evangelist Ben: Well if I am, that was then not now. The Lord has worked in my life, I have a witness to that. Now, the word of God is clear. If I should correct any family, I will first of all correct my family. If I should feed the flock, I should first of all eat the food.
17.        The Son of Man:It is a point,” according to late Elder Nwosu. “It is a point,” say it loud and clear, “it is a point.”
18.        Evangelist Ben: if I should feed my flock, I will first of all feed myself. If I should judge the flock, I should first of all judge myself. If I should correct the flock, I should first of all correct myself. When a minister understands that, the devil will be afraid of him because he will be mindful of his own personal life for the flock is watching out for that life in him.
19.        The Son of Man: He that goes to God must first of all show sincerity.
20.        Evangelist Ben: Pastor Chizoba, the respect you will command in this congregation is your lifestyle.
21.        The Son of Man: No more preaching!
22.        Evangelist Ben: Whatever anybody knows about you in the past, all the good commendations that followed you in the past, you are now going to perfect them. You are now going to manifest them because you are not going to be the beneficial alone but the whole body of Christ.
23.        For that reason what the flock will see in you and respect is Christ in you, the word of God in you, the word of God in me, that is the only thing the flock will see and they will bow down. When you feed them with the truth, they will be coming to you for that truth.
24.        The Son of Man: BUT LET ME ASK YOU ONE QUESTION BRO BEN, YOU ARE A MINISTER OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, I MET YOU AS A MINISTER IN 1990, I WAS YOUR INTERPRETER WHEN YOU CAME WITH YOUR WIFE, EVEN WHEN YOU WERE NOT QUALIFIED TO GO ABOUT WITH A WIFE.
25.        Evangelist Ben: it is truth sir!
26.        The Son of Man: I LOVE YOU FOR ONE THING, YOU KNOW HOW TO GO ABOUT GETTING GOD’S FAVOUR EACH TIME YOU ERRED AND THAT IS WHY YOU ARE STILL HERE TILL TODAY.
27.        NOBODY EVER BELIEVED YOU COULD BE HERE TILL NOW, I MEAN IN THIS FAITH FOR YOU SUFFERED TERRIBLY AND TROUBLED US VERY WELL. NOW YOU ARE A MATURED MIND. PLACE YOURSELF WHERE YOU BELONG TO AS AN EVANGELIST.
28.        ASSUMING YOU ARE STUBBORN AND INCORRIGIBLE AND YOUR WIFE IS PRUDENT, WISE AND UNDERSTANDING AND SHE MAKES EVERY HONEST ATTEMPT TO HELP YOU SEE YOUR FAULT AND BECAUSE YOU ARE THE HUSBANDMAN, THE HEAD OF THE FAMILY, IN YOUR EMPTINESS AND STUBBORNNESS, YOU REFUSED ALL HER APPROACHES, ALL HER COUNSELS, ALL HER ASSISTANCES, IN THE END WHO DO WE BLAME?
29.        Evangelist Ben: I will blame myself.
30.        The Son of Man: BUT WILL YOU KNOW THAT WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS WRONG?
31.        Evangelist Ben: I won’t know until the spirit of God Is in me.
32.        The Son of Man: YOU WILL NOT KNOW BECAUSE YOU DO NOT BELIEVE YOUR WIFE HAS THE SPIRIT OF GOD. THAT IS ALL.
33.        Evangelist Ben: Daddy for me, I believe my wife has the Spirit of God.
34.        The Son of Man: DO YOU ACCEPT CORRECTIONS FROM YOUR WIFE READILY? I SAID “READILY” YES OR NO?
35.        Evangelist Ben: No sir I do not accept corrections from my wife readily.
36.        The Son of Man: OK THANK YOU!
37.        Evangelist Ben: But I have taken correction.
38.        The Son of Man: I SAID THANK YOU. I KNOW THAT A GOOD NUMBER OF SO-CALLED MINISTERS ARE EXPERTS IN SEARCHING THE MESSAGES ONLY TO FIND FAULT WITH THEIR WIVES, TO GIVE THEM REASONS WHY THEY SHOULD NOT TALK  OR EXPRESS OPINION.
39.        EACH TIME THEY HAVE SOMETHING SERIOUS TO DISCUSS, THEY MUST BE COWED DOWN. DO YOU THINK IF THIS IS THE WAY IT IS IN MY FAMILY YOU WILL BE WHERE YOU ARE TODAY? NEVER, NEVER.
40.        I KNOW WHY I AM SAYING THIS. TO YOU WIVES, TO YOU BROTHERS MINISTERS DON’T YOU MARVEL WHEN YOU HEAR FROM TIME TESTED WITNESSES THAT MY WIFE SINGLE HANDEDLY PROOFREAD THE GREAT SERMON; ALL THE TRANSLATIONS PUT TOGETHER, COMPARED THE SCRIPTURES, CONTRASTED ALL, MAKING SURE THEY WERE ALL ACCURATE.
41.        A WORK SO-CALLED MINISTERS COULD NOT ATTEMPT YET SHE WAS PREGNANT, A CIVIL SERVANT, A WIFE AND IT HAS REMAINED HER TESTIMONY.
42.        SHE SAID, “DADDY, THAT WORK YOU GAVE ME IN THAT CONDITION ELEVATED MY SPIRITUAL HEIGHT BY COMPARING SCRIPTURES, CROSSCHECKING, CORRECTING ERRORS FROM ALL THE TRANSLATIONS USED IN THE GREAT SERMON, I BECAME ANOTHER PERSON ALTOGETHER.”
43.        FOR THERE IS NO SCRIPTURE YOU ARE QUOTING FROM THAT MESSAGE WHICH SHE NEVER READ, NO TRANSLATION WHICH SHE NEVER READ. SO IT IS WITH THE WIFE OF PASTOR DAN WHO ALONGSIDE WITH BISHOP NNACHOR TRANSCRIBED ALL.
44.        SHE WAS EQUALLY PREGNANT THAT TIME. I AM SAYING THAT ALL THESE THINGS I AM SAYING NOW WERE UNKNOWN TO SO-CALLED PASTORS.
45.        NOT EVEN PASTOR DAN ATTEMPTED IT OR PASTOR CHRISTIAN OR PASTOR THOMAS. WHEN YOU GO TO MY COMMENDATION IN THAT CONCLUSION EPISTLE 22, GO THERE. WHAT AM I SAYING; NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, MAN OR WOMAN, IF YOU DO NOT DELIGHT YOURSELF IN THE SCRIPTURES, YOU ARE DENYING YOURSELF KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.
46.        THE MORE YOU KNOW THE TRUTH, THE MORE YOU ARE PROTECTED FROM ERROR. THAT WE DO NOT PLACE SISTERS IN THE PULPIT DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE FOOLISH OR UNREASONABLE. SOME OF THEM KNOW THIS FAITH MORE THAN THEIR HUSBANDS, MORE THAN THE MINISTERS.
47.        I AM NOT HIDING AND SAYING IT. I DO NOT KNOW HOW YOU RUN YOUR FAMILY ALTAR. IF YOU ARE RUNNING IT LIKE ME, BETTER. IN MY FAMILY ALTAR, I SHARE IT WITH YOU. THERE ARE SOME TIMES I WILL NOT BE IN THE MORNING ALTAR, SOME TIMES I WILL BE THERE. I GIVE MY WIFE THE FAMILY ALTAR TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEMS OF HER FAMILY HAVING BELIEVED IN ME.
48.        OFTEN TIMES I ALLOWED HER TO MINISTER TO ENABLE ME ASSESS HER. FIND OUT FROM MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY WHETHER I AM TELLING LIES. THE ONLY THING SHE DOES NOT DO IS PRAYING FOR THEM BUT PREACHING THIS WORD OF TRUTH IN THE FAMILY, VERIFY FROM THE MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY.
49.        REMEMBER SHE WAS HANDLING THE ADULT WOMEN CLASSES UNTIL IT BECAME CLEAR THAT MARRIED UNGODLY WIVES WHO HAVE VOWED NEVER TO CHANGE OR TO LISTEN TO GOOD COUNSELS FOR THEY BELIEVE THAT ALL WOMEN ARE THE SAME, THAT THERE IS NOTHING THEIR FELLOW  WOMAN CAN OFFER WHICH THEY DO NOT HAVE, WHICH IS FALSEHOOD AND STUPIDITY.
50.        WHAT IS MORE, THESE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT CAUSE THE GREATEST SETBACKS IN THEIR HOMES, THEY CAUSE THE GREATEST FRUSTRATION FOR WHICH CAUSE I DISBANDED IT, RECALLED MY WIFE TO MY FAMILY, FINISH, AND YOU CONTINUE WITH YOUR PROBLEMS FOR I KNOW THAT IT TOOK ME TIME AND PAINS TO GROOM HER SO THAT SHE CAN BE A HELP WHICH MOST OF YOU CAN TESTIFY; BECAUSE THE MOMENT YOU SENSE DANGER, YOU KNOW WHERE YOU NORMALLY CALL AND YOU KNOW THE COUNSEL YOU NORMALLY RECEIVE.
51.        THIS IS HOW IT SHOULD BE IN THE FAMILY OF EVERY PASTOR, YOUR HOUSE SHOULD BE A BEEHIVE OF ACTIVITIES. WHAT I AM DOING IN MY HOUSE IS WHAT PASTOR’S SHOULD BE DOING. MEMBERS OF YOUR LOCAL ASSEMBLIES SHOULD BE RUNNING TO YOUR HOUSE FOR MANY REASONS.
52.        IF THEY ARE NOT COMING TO YOU AS THE PASTOR, THEY ARE COMING TO YOUR WIFE. WHAT IF BOTH OF YOU ARE ANTAGONISTIC, YOU DO NOT WANT TO SEE ANYBODY AT ALL? WHAT IF YOU ARE THE TYPE THAT SEES THEM AS BEGGARS WHO ARE COMING TO BEG FOOD OR MONEY FROM YOU, YOU SEE THEM AS TROUBLES YOU CANNOT COPE WITH.
53.        OF COURSE THEY WON’T COME, THEY WILL RUN AWAY. THAT MARKS YOU OUT TO BE A VERY BAD LEADER. IF YOU ARE A PASTOR, A SHEPHERD AND YOUR WIFE’S ATTITUDE IS VERY REPULSIVE, YOU MUST MAKE SHIPWRECK. I DO NOT CARE WHO YOU ARE.
54.        IF YOU ARE A PASTOR AND YOUR OWN ATTITUDE LIKE PASTOR CHRISTIAN DIKE IS REPULSIVE, YOU MUST MAKE A SHIPWRECK. IF SOMEBODY IS REFERRED TO YOU, HE WILL SAY “INSTEAD HE WILL GO, LET HIM DIE IN HIS PROBLEM, BECAUSE THE PASTOR DOES NOT HAVE TIME,” LIKE PASTOR CHRISTIAN DIKE AND HIS WIFE. THAT STATEMENT ALONE IS FRUSTRATING.
55.        Please pay attention to what you are hearing with the readiness of the mind to obey. The change has started, it is going to be continuous. I hope I am making sense?
56.        I say it is going to be continuous whether we like it or not. I will announce more changes with time but let me begin with Umuahia which is a problem baby also.
57.        I will compound their problems now because their Elder is here, you will bear witness the same way I sent brethren from Nsukka to go and announce it, the same way I am sending you to go and announce it. 
58.        FROM TODAY, BROTHER ATTAH DANIEL BECOMES THE PASTOR IN-CHARGE. GIVE HIM YOUR COOPERATION. NEXT SUNDAY IF THERE WILL BE SUNDAY, LET TWO ELDERS COME HERE WITH HIM TO ENABLE ME LAY HAND ON HIM.
59.        TO OPI, THE SON OF ELDER PATRICK TAKES OVER FROM PASTOR GODDY WITH EFFECT FROM NOW. I DO NOT KNOW HIS NAME BUT I KNOW HE IS A TILLER, IS HE HERE? OK PASTOR GODDY IS HERE. CARRY THE GOODNEWS HOME.
60.        HE HAS NO ASSISTANT. YOU BRING HIM HERE NEXT SUNDAY FOR ME TO LAY HAND ON HIM.
61.        I HAVE A PLACE THAT IS POROUS BUT MY CHOICE IS SHUTTLING BETWEEN PORT HARCOURT AND EGBEMA. I AM FED UP WITH PASTOR PROMISE, THIS IS THE TRUTH. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM AGAIN BUT MY CHOICE OF PASTOR IS SHUTTLING A LITTLE WHILE IN PORT HARCOURT, A LITTLE WHILE IN EGBEMA AND IT IS GIVING ME A SERIOUS CONCERN.
62.        BUT IF I MAKE MY ORDER, HE IS BOUND TO OBEY AND HE IS NO OTHER PERSON THAN BROTHER CHIJIOKE FROM OMOK. PASTOR PROMISE, PASTOR NDUBUISI, ALL STEP DOWN WITH EFFECT FROM NOW. ALL OTHER OFFICES I POST THERE REMAINED UNCHANGED, THANK YOU. Amen.

LEADERSHIP QUALITIES
Evangelist Ben: Brethren let us continue with the scripture.
2.           1 Peter 5:1-21 WARN and counsel the elders among you the pastors and spiritual guides of the church as a fellow elder and as an eyewitness called to testify of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a sharer in the glory (the honor and splendor)…
3.           The Son of Man: I know My own and My own knows me, I call them by their names no matter where they are. They may not be your choice, na My choice.
4.           That is to be revealed (disclosed, unfolded):Tend (nurture, guard, guide, and fold) the flock of God that is [your responsibility]…  
5.           Tend, nurture, guard, guide, and feed the flock of God, that is your responsibility. Guide them to their Saviour, always help their faith  so that they will have confidence in coming to you.
6.           When they come to you, they have come for comfort, they have come for reality, they have come for truth, they have come for encouragement and you will only use the word to feed them. They may come with their questions, the word of God is the solution to everything.
7.           It is the word that Pastors the flock apart from the word of God, you can never feed the flock.  Tend, nurture, guard, guide, and feed the flock. This is your responsibility. For God always has the point He is looking at every minister.
8.           Every minister has a calling, has a responsibility conferred on him by Almighty God. If he fails, it is because he failed in his responsibility. If he stands, it is because he stands in his responsibility.
9.           If any minister wants to stand firmly, he should stand on his responsibility, he should look at the area God wants him to perform. This is the Pastoral work. Every other minister has his own function, a responsibility, directive, function by God who ordained him.
10.        For when God gives a man an office, He gives him a function, He gives him a responsibility. No matter whatever happens, God is looking at us from that point.
11.        Seeing that our Salvation is tied to our office, we have to do it in the fear of God minding that responsibility.
12.        Tend, nurture, guard, guide, and feed your flock that is your responsibility, not by coercion or constraint, but willingly…
13.        You have to do it willingly, in love. If you do not do it in love, you will fail. Not by compliance, not by persuasion, not by force because by the time you lose Faith, you lose Revelation, it becomes a burden, you will no longer be willing and the flock will notice it.
14.        If there be any flock that is sensitive, it is the flock of the Son of Man because the Son of Man has taken His time to teach the flock, so the flock is holding them on the word of God, and what the flock needs is something that will take them higher and not somebody that will rigmarole on something we have crossed.
15.        The flock will be fed up of such minister. But when you do it willingly, knowing that God is looking at us from that point, certainly, everything will be right, God will now give us a helping hand. No minister succeeds without God’s helping hands for we must depend on God to forge ahead.
16.        Not dishonorably motivated by the advantages and profits belonging to the office…
17.        We are not expecting anything from the office.
18.        …but eagerly and cheerfully…
19.        Eagerly and cheerfully, the flock must look at you and how eager you are to do the will of God.
20.        The Son of Man: Because the face is the window of the heart.
21.        Evangelist Ben: If the face is the window of the heart and the Pastor does not wear a cheerful face, why are you going to Pastor seeing that the flock takes the spirit of their Pastor?
22.        The Son of Man: If the flock takes the spirit of their Pastor, which one will Onitsha take? Is it Pastor Thomas or Pastor Christian or Pastor Dan? We must take one, not three, but which one are we going to take? It is confusion!
23.        Some will pattern after Pastor Dan, some after Pastor Thomas, some after Pastor Christian and they will come together. It will be a wonder church. A wonder group.
24.        Evangelist Ben: Brethren, God is watching the joy, He is watching the gladness. When we are happy, we are glad.
25.        The Son of Man: You must do the work of God with joy!
26.        Evangelist Ben: Obedience to the truth is joy, it is peace but when we carry it as if it is a duty, it is a load, we find it impossible and will be complaining and murmuring. 
27.        The Son of Man: Do it in love and not as a duty!
28.        Evangelist Ben: Watch any minister who has that gift of love, do it willingly, doing it with joy, do it as appreciation to the Salvation God has given us. God will be happy to flow in our life. When the Pastor is in the right spirit, the Holy Ghost will flow in the congregation.
29.        The Son of Man: To work with God is great gain!   
30.        Evangelist Ben: Yes sir! Not domineering [as arrogant, dictatorial, and overbearing persons…
31.        Not domineering, as arrogant, dictatorial, and overbearing persons. No! The Pastors must give room for the word of God to decide. In the office of the Pastor, you have much time to dwell on the word of God.
32.        When the decisions are based on the Faith, you will be as bold as a lion for the righteous is as bold as a lion. Any word that is placed right stands as bold as a lion before God.
33.        The Son of Man: A good Pastor makes intercessions for his flock but a wicked shepherd supplies information to destroy the flock. If I have used information supplied to me by your Pastors to handle your affairs, many of you would have been in hellfire. That is why when they come and talk, oftentimes I will laugh. They will expect me to act.
34.        In My action, I will invite some Elders, bring that person, I will say, “Come and tell me what you told me again and whoever that is involved, come forward, make your defense.”
35.        You see the accuser denying all he said, denying the scandal, the propaganda, everything. You will discover that everything was aimed at destroying his enemy which if I never exercised wisdom, that would have been the end of the journey for his enemy. There are some that have their known enemies very well. Pastor Christian am I lying?
36.        Pastor Christian: No sir!
37.        The Son of Man: Thank you! There are some here, if they are given knife, they will slice some people into pieces. This is what some people are known for. Na me be the dustbin of the saints, that is all. Thus, when you are coming to the dustbin, what do you expect to see? You can see many, many things.
38.        Evangelist Ben: Not domineering, as arrogant, dictatorial, and overbearing persons over those in your charge…
39.        Those you are in-charge of are looking at you from the mirror of the word of God. Everybody that has come to worship God expects every conversation, every decision, every action to agree with the word. Once it agrees, the spirit flows freely.
40.        The Son of Man: Amen! Bro. Ben, you are a worthy Evangelist, this is the much we will take from you.
41.        Bro. Ojiakor, can we have about 5 minutes from you? Just few encouraging words to the newly ordained Pastors and ministers.
42.        YOU MIGHT BE THINKING WHY OR MAYBE I HAVE BEEN KEEPING SILENT OVER THEIR WEAKNESSES, NO. DO NOT BE ASTONISHED, DO NOT RELENT. THEY ARE NOT MY FAVOURITES, I HAVE NO FAVOURITE, I HAVE NO PREFERENCE. THAT IS WHY I AM THE MOST DELICATE HUMAN BEING TO HANDLE.
43.        BUT THESE ARE VESSELS I NURTURED TO LIMELIGHT AND KEEP WATCH OVER THEM WITH TENDER JEALOUSY. INSTEAD OF THEM TO FAIL ME, I WILL PUT THEM IN THE MORTUARY STRAIGHTAWAY. NO CONSIDERATION.
44.        IF THAT IS WHAT IT WILL TAKE ME TO SAVE THE SOUL, HE MUST ENTER THE MORTUARY SO AS TO GIVE WAY FROM MY EYES AND THAT IS WHY THEY ARE ALIVE TILL TODAY, FOR THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE FOLLOWING.
45.        I AM A CONSUMING FIRE. IN MY SMILING FACE I CAN BE DANGEROUS AND WHENEVER I WANT TO KILL YOU, I KNOW WHAT I WILL DO. I DON’T KILL BUT I KILL. DID YOU GET THE MESSAGE?
46.        IF YOU KNOW WHO I AM, YOU WILL AGREE THAT I KILL AND I MAKETH ALIVE. IF I WANT TO KILL, I WILL KILL. IF I WANT TO MAKE ALIVE, I WILL MAKE ALIVE. IF I WANT TO AFFLICT, I AFFLICT IN DIVERSE FORMS. Give them enough encouragement. AMEN.

APOSTLE LUKE OJIAKOR

IT IS SUICIDAL TO FAIL GOD

Apostle Luke Ojiakor: You are blessed brethren.  Now Almighty God has spoken to all the newly ordained ministers. Take the word you have heard. He that has called you is with you. All the ministers, recall what he just said.   

2.           The Son of Man: Chuboy Egbuna, if you are here stand up. Fear your mother’s official vehicle the same way you fear death. Don’t ever near the vehicle keys. The only duty you have with that vehicle is to wash it, obey your mother’s instructions concerning the vehicle.

3.           It is not your family vehicle, it belongs to the State. Did you hear me? It is not your father’s vehicle, it belongs to the State. It is tax payer’s vehicle. If you keep on causing damages, your mother will keep on spending. The State will never reimburse her a kobo. They may even charge her in the end.

4.           In the end, it may be the end of her service. So be warned. If you do not want your mother to come out of the service—after 35 years of service—empty handed, off your eyes from that vehicle. If you are intelligent, you have no need of any car for now. Do you have?

5.           Chuboy: No sir!

6.           The Son of Man: Thank you.

7.           Apostle Luke Ojiakor: Amen. An instruction has gone forth and Chuboy was called up but every one of us should as well learn from there.

8.           The Son of Man: I used Chuboy to talk to all of us. If you say My son is driving, he obtained the same license he (Chuboy) obtained but he took time to learn the Road Safety manual, but I do not release the key to him. He does not take My key without My permission and I must make sure I know where he is going, I program every movement.

9.           Apostle Ojiakor: of course there was a time he was at Enugu in my house. I saw him driving a vehicle, picked him up around 3-3. I picked up my phone and then called the Almighty.

10.        The Son of Man: The Police called me because they know the vehicle. They were asking me who I gave My vehicle that they saw a young man carrying My car with another young boy, fair in complexion in front.

11.        I said, “Ok describe his stature.” He described, I said, “He is My first son and My last son.”

12.        Apostle Ojiakor: it is important, let us understand He that has called us, Who we are following, Whose Voice we are hearing.

13.        The Son of Man: And My son never knew that the Police had My number and they know all the vehicles. He never knew they were calling me. If I had instructed them to wait for him while coming back, no more! He would have remained in the cell with the brother till I come back from Enugu.

14.        Apostle Ojiakor: Brethren, all of us that has been called let us understand.

15.         The Son of Man: Sister Egbuna, you will do something. Tell the Police that if they see anybody in that official vehicle, and it is not you or your mechanic, that they should impound both the person and the vehicle, finish.

16.        If it is your husband, he will clear himself by calling you for identification. Can you be incurring losses and become a wealthy fellow?  

17.        Apostle Ojiakor: Who has seen this type of God? This type of caring Father that cares everything about us.

18.        The Son of Man: All these corps members and would-be corps members, remember my message to all of you: “No group of youths are prone to road accidents more than corpers”. Is it not true? (It is sir!) So be conscious of your life, be security conscious.

19.        Run away from all those excitements, for they cannot help you one bit and then save your life from disaster. When you become a full-fledged man, you can buy the one you can command to fly and it will fly.

20.        Yes modern, modern things are coming every day. So we are riding old model, you will ride the existing current model.

21.        Apostle Ojiakor: 2 Timothy 4: 1-5 Amplified and Living Bible

22.        2 Timothy 4:1-6 I CHARGE [you] in the presence of God…

23.        Almighty is charging all the ministers in his own presence.

24.         “…and of Christ , Who is to judge the living and the dead…

25.        The Son of Man: So Christ is the judge of the living and the dead. What is Christ? The Anointed One, the Messiah, the Saviour. Anointed with what? The word of God putting on flesh. 

26.        Apostle Ojiakor: and by (in the light of) His coming and His kingdom: Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable...

27.        Whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable.

28.        The Son of Man: You in My house, have you heard it? If you are waiting for a favourable time to do something, you will never do it.

29.        Apostle Ojiakor: Let me tell you something, it is a great privilege to be called unto God by God and given an assignment when there are many people who are qualified.

30.        The Son of Man: Thank you! What a privilege, God counting you worthy, assigning you a responsibility.

31.        Apostle Ojiakor: A great privilege. Whatever it will take you even if it is going without food.

32.        The Son of Man: I am convinced, are you convinced?

33.        Apostle Ojiakor: if it means going without food, if it means reading all through the night. God counting you worthy. Let me tell you, it is suicidal to fail God!

34.        The Son of Man: It is suicidal to fail God, both man and woman, no exemption, young and old.  

35.        Apostle Ojiakor: Like God warned me to stay with my son, he is a young man. One day, I had the opportunity to stay with him in his place at Awka. That night I came, I showed him some scriptures he must as a young man prove himself worthy.

36.        I told him, “God has decided to pull you to Himself, do not ever joke with it for there are many and God decided to pick you. You never applied for it, you never asked God, then this is the greatest responsibility, this is the greatest commitment, this is the greatest duty, this is the greatest assignment and you should not joke with it.”

37.         Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging…

38.        God has said, “Do not ever look at faces. I call you Jeremiah, do not ever look at their faces. Rebuke, indict in right judgment.” Of course you have to have the word in you and then the life will show it forth that you can boldly stand and declare the wholesome truth, not looking at faces.

39.        What is your target? To please He that has enlisted you. Once God is happy, that is your commendation for you are not accountable to any human being but to He that has called you.

40.        I was informing Apostle Kelechi, I told him that there is something I read from “Moment of Truth,” that I am privileged to be called into this Gospel truth, God Himself assigning me a position, why should I joke with it!

41.        The Son of Man: We have a message that “We have to be thankful to God who has counted us worthy calling us into this ministry,” preached on 13th August 2000. Another message is “Now I Know that thou art a Man of God and the words of God that come out of your mouth are according to truth, preached on 28TH FEBRUARY, 1999.   

42.        “…and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching. For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction…

43.        The Son of Man: For the time is coming when people will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, and now is the time, so that they will heap for themselves and they have itching ears to teach them what they will believe, what they want to hear, not what God wants them to hear.

44.        That is what is obtainable everywhere. You give no room for such silly men whose idea of getting the Gospel is what they will get out from it. Resist them with every amount of malice. Give no room to such silly people, they are everywhere. Even in the motor parks, you will see hundreds of them.

45.        For the time is coming when people will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction…

46.        The Son of Man: the time is coming and now is the time. I will not tolerate. I want you to correct it and now is that time.  

47.        For now is the time now when people will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction but, having ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying…

48.        The Son of Man: Thank you! Ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying, that is what they will hear. If you want to know what I am saying, go to Ochanja Market, all these crafty people from Abia, mainly Ngwa who hire loud speakers and every kind of P.A system, come and see how they are exploiting women, silly women who are always wishing their enemies death, they will sing to their admiration, women will come and be dancing, then prayer will ensue; “Anyone that is selling with charms, Holy Ghost fire! That woman that said you will not sleep in your house, Holy Ghost fire! Any hand that is withholding the blessings of God, may that hand be broken!”

49.         The women will be shouting Amen! Amen! The commercial preacher will say, “As many as that echoed Amen, it is now time for offering”. You will see women rushing to give offering to him because he is telling them what they want to hear. It is everywhere.

50.        But here, we tell you that which you hate, which if ears hear it, the ears will vibrate; you will be forced to cover your ears. Who can stand to hear this? This is unbelievable, “Who can stand to hear this?” That is what we preach.

51.        …they now gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold, And will turn aside from hearing the truth and wander off into myths and man-made fictions( AMP).    

52.        2 Timothy 1:3-8, I thank God Whom I worship with a pure conscience, in the spirit of my fathers, when without ceasing I remember you night and day in my prayers,  And when, as I recall your tears, I yearn to see you so that I may be filled with joy.  I am calling up memories of your sincere and unqualified faith (the leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ…

53.        God has made His choice and He has seen something in this brethren.

54.        The Son of Man: If you want to know what I am saying, go to the message titled “Possessing the Gift of God”.  

55.        Apostle Ojiakor: God has seen something in them.  And when, as I recall your tears, I yearn to see you so that I may be filled with joy.  I am calling up memories of your sincere and unqualified faith.

56.         We heard God talking about our Brother Chizoba. He said, “Since he enlisted in the Faith, he has never suffered any excommunication, no evil report. And Apostle Kelechi came up and talked about him, that since the elder brother died, he has been taking care of the family of the brother and yet no single evil report.

57.        The Son of Man: We have witnesses. His elder brother Chinedu is there. If we are bearing false witness, he knows. We can never call the late brother’s wife. A time came when his elder brothers became envious of him and started having a feeling that maybe the late brother was paid millions and he embezzled it or that he realized millions from the late brother’s business.

58.        He is here to speak. Even the brother’s life is a wonder to the whole family. True or false? True sir! Thank you. I do not want to go further.

59.        Let me tell you something, of course I say it every day man or woman, I do not discriminate. I must give you your flowers while you are still alive. I do not believe in saying it when you are dead.

60.        If you do good, I will tell you. If you do bad, I will scold you, I will clamp down on you. If you do anything that is praise worthy, before everybody I will feel like carrying you up. Whether others will believe it or not, but if you do that which is wrong, get ready the same level I lifted you, the same level I will bring you down. Even, I will floor you in what I call super slam so that you will not get up again. Yes, super slam.

61.        Apostle Ojiakor: God is the Author of everything. God is giving the testimony and His testimony should continue to be upheld higher and higher for good, not negative, at any level at all.

62.        Have this at the back of your mind that God has seen something, in all, He has picked and you have to fear and reverence Him.

63.        God has seen you, God has picked you, and God has equipped you. You have nothing of your own, it is what He has given you, you have to keep or protect it.

64.        The Son of Man: Let me cheep in something. If you want God who called you to be with you, do those things that please Him: for Jesus said “He that called me is still with me, my Father has not left me for I do those things that please Him”.

65.        I am not talking to the ministers alone; I am equally talking to every Tom, Dick and Harry for we are heading to one place with one qualification. That qualification does not know whether you are male or female.  Sandasand? Yes sir! Thank you.  

66.        I am calling up memories of your sincere and unqualified faith (the leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ…

67.        The leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ.

68.        Apostle Ojiakor: It has pleased God to place you high, don’t ever allow it to quench. Hold it fast and lean on Him.

69.        …the leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), [a faith] that first lived permanently in [the heart of] your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am [fully] persuaded, [dwells] in you also.

70.        The Son of Man: the totality of all we have been hearing since morning should be incorporated in one message using the names of the ministers to separate the messages, but the title is one: ORDINATION OF PASTORS.

71.        What are we doing? We are giving all the Pastors, Teachers or whatever you call yourself, even if you are striving to come back as a Deacon, we are giving you a leverage.

72.        If you can see the ladder, you can climb back. If you are a Bishop, deposed, if you see the ladder, you can climb back. Qualification for a Pastor is qualification for every brother, for every sister that is desirous to make the best out of her ministry.

73.        This is the ladder which you can use to find yourself back to your deposed estate.

74.        Apostle Ojiakor: did we get it?

75.        The Son of Man: And those that are clamouring also to be in such enviable positions, this is also the ladder. If you can meet all these conditions, you can touch the sky in this Faith sooner than you envisaged. Anybody can get there if he willeth. Even those that are in the bottomless pit, if there is bottomless pit, My ladder has reached them down there. That is My love, My love reacheth to the lowest pit, crosses the largest ocean.

76.        Thus, there is no pit where My love cannot get to and that love is manifesting now. If you continue to feast under this Cloud, you may not know when you have overstayed because you are under a canopy here.

77.        Out there, no canopy.  There is a canopy here supplying you with all you need. Nourishing oxygen hence you may not know the time. We are under the canopy of God. Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that cometh out of the mouth of God.

78.        The word of God offers us strength, physically and spiritually. Since we are here, there are some people that have not gone out to urinate, there are some people who are not hungry here even if they stay here till tomorrow, it seem as if it is still morning because you are supernaturally made. When supernatural meets supernatural, it becomes omnipotent.

79.        Apostle Ojiakor: Joshua 14:8, But my brethren who went up with me made the hearts of the people melt; yet I wholly followed the Lord my God.AMP.

80.        God said something in the morning. He said when He sees signs of change coming up, He will speak otherwise. He said even those that are deep down there.

81.        Caleb and Joshua went with the others to spy the land and they came back to give a report about the land of Canaan. They came back with encouraging reports about the land of Canaan, Caleb and Joshua killed the people and told them they were able to go.

82.        He said, “I am young, how can God call me and I say I am tired of worshiping God, of serving God, of doing what God has committed into my hands when He (The Ancient of Days) is still bubbling and I never called myself, I am not the one keeping myself.”

83.        The Son of Man: One whose parents are alive, does he say that he is old? His elders are alive, his parents are alive and he said that he is old.

84.        And Moses swore on that day, Surely the land on which your feet have walked shall be an inheritance to you and your children always, because you have wholly followed the Lord my God.

85.        Now look at Caleb, remember he went with his Joshua. Now the mantle of leadership was handed over to Joshua. Almighty God told him “As I have been with Moses so shall I be with you. Be courageous, do the work.” Caleb was not envious, Caleb proved that he was very, very strong. How can you tell me that you are old and tired?

86.        And now, behold, the Lord has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years since the Lord spoke this word to Moses, while the Israelites wandered in the wilderness; and now, behold, I am this day eighty-five years old. 

87.        Yet I am as strong today as I was the day Moses sent me; as my strength was then, so is my strength now for war and to go out and to come in. So now give me this hill country of which the Lord spoke that day.

88.        For you heard then how the [giantlike] Anakim were there and that the cities were great and fortified; if the Lord will be with me, I shall drive them out just as the Lord said.  Then Joshua blessed him and gave Hebron to Caleb son of Jephunneh for an inheritance. (AMP).

89.        The Son of Man: on this note, we say thank you as we invite the Pastor in-charge (Pastor Chizoba) to close us even with the word of prayer until next Sunday, we will be waiting for you if you want to see me.

90.         If you do not want to see me, go your way. If you do not want to see me, I do not want to see you. If you want to see me, I want to see you period.  

91.        Remain blessed in Him eternally. Amen.
