Preached on Sunday 15th December, 2019 At The Household of God, Onitsha By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN

“Look at the denominations. There is not even a single star in the denominations” Not even one. That is why when one gives way, the wife will take over or the son will take over or there will be trouble in that church because it is a family business. A registered property in a man’s name. A will must be made. Property of the church will be willed to the number of children in the family, and then you call it church of God in Jesus name. The greatest deception: Religious deception.
That is why we can never be religious. Any day we begin to be religious, the devil is waiting for us somewhere.

SELFLESS SACRIFICE

Deuteronomy 29:18 – 22, Amplified version.18Beware... What? Beware! We have heard “Beware, lest there be any heart of unbelief in you from departing from the true God and you begin to give your allegiance to the gods of this world, which you know are the things eyes can see, hearts will imagine, mouth will eat and speak, the fashions of this world that fade away, with its competition thereof.
2.           Beware lest there should be among you a man or woman,... You see, anybody can be that person. If you are a woman and you say it does not concern you, God knows you are a woman and that you are involved.
3.           The deliverance of the people of the Jews in the land of the Medo-Persia was even rested in the hand of a woman called Esther. Esther even went into the palace of Ahaserus the King in a day that was not meant for a human being to enter because of the deliverance of her people. Why? She noticed that she was involved.
4.           So, if you are a woman and you say it does not concern you, but your husband, shame on you. You will know that you are involved whether you are a Prophet, Apostle. The day it will happen, the Prophet, the Preacher and the person that kept quiet, you are involved.
5.           I prophesied against it. In captivity you are there. See Pastor Moses. He prophesied. He kicked against it. When Aba was scattered, Pastor Moses was equally involved.
6.           I told you about this thing. You are among those going into captivity. I said it that this man brings nothing but trouble. You are among those marching into captivity.
7.           Beware lest there should be among you a man or woman, or family or tribe,... Brethren, why not reason together. The leg of a kid goat is also sold in the market. When God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, no infant escaped. In the days of Noah, infants were not considered. In Jericho, infants were not considered.
8.           Take the case of the Nigeria-Biafra civil war. Was any infant considered? In the Boko Haram-ravaged areas, any infant considered? When calamity comes, calamity has come. Calamity does not discriminate between man and woman or child and adult. Calamity means calamity. Epidemics means epidemics. Influenza means influenza.
9.           The only person that will escape is one that is immuned to escape. One that has the insulator. And the insulator against God’s calamity is obedience to the truth. Strict allegiance to God.
10.       Beware lest there should be among you a man or woman, or family or tribe,  whose [mind and] heart turns away this day from the Lord our God...
11.       Whose heart and mind turns away from the Reality to mere fairy tale that is unprofitable. Once your mind wanders away, and your heart wanders away, where are you landing? You are landing in hell. You are landing in the D’s as I use to tell My family members.
12.       I have searched the dictionary meanings of the D’s and I am afraid of the D’s. Disappointment. Watch it. Despair, Disaster, Destruction. All of them are the D’s. All of them are the D’s.
13.       Beware lest there should be among you a man or woman, or family or tribe, whose [mind and] heart turns away this day from the Lord our God to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a [poisonous] root that bears gall and wormwood,
14.       19And lest, when he hears the words of this curse and oath, he flatters and congratulates himself in his [mind and] heart, saying, I shall have peace and safety, though I walk in the stubbornness of my [mind and] heart...
15.       I shall have peace and safety. No shaking! Do not mind them. Bro Pascal, I hope you are paying attention, for thus is Enugu language. This is Enugu language. Okey Oleri, is this not Enugu language? Good! And it reflects in their attitude to the Faith and to one another.
16.       No shaking! I call it the language of Korah, Dathan and Abiram, who could stand before the Holy One to tell Him that everybody is now holy. Why troubling them? Are you the only one God speaks to. Leave that matter to rest. Let us eat and drink. Everybody should live and behave as he wishes.
17.       19And lest, when he hears the words of this curse and oath, HE FLATTERS AND CONGRATULATES HIMSELF in his [mind and] heart, saying, I shall have peace and safety, though I walk in the stubbornness of my [mind and] heart[bringing down a hurricane of destruction]... Bringing down what? A hurricane of destruction upon himself and his family, and those he had deceived, who have listened to him.
18.       That is why the Bible said, “Constantly teach that which is sound doctrine. By so doing, you save your life and the life of those that listens to you.”[Titus 2:1, 1 Timothy 4:6]
19.       19And lest, when he hears the words of this curse and oath, HE FLATTERS AND CONGRATULATES HIMSELF in his [mind and] heart, saying, I shall have peace and safety, though I walk in the stubbornness of my [mind and] heart [bringing down a hurricane of destruction] and sweep away the watered land with the dry.
20.       20The Lord will not pardon him,... The LORD will not pardon that person. Is there any sin the LORD will not pardon? Yes!
21.       20The Lord will not pardon him, but then the anger of the Lord and His jealousy will smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall settle on him; the Lord will blot out his very name from under the heavens.
22.       21And the Lord will single him out for ruin and destruction from all the tribes of Israel,... The LORD will single the person out for destruction. For ruin! Though you might be one million there, God will single out the evil person. God must single out the evil man from among the righteous. Is it not the Scriptures?
23.       He can never because of one person punish the people. He knows how to preserve the ungodly until the day of his destruction. And He knows how to preserve the righteous until the day of his final redemption. [2 Peter 2:9]
24.       Woe unto God if He should destroy the righteous among the wicked. [Genesis 18:25] Impossible! The Scriptures said the LORD Himself will single out that erring person, that stubborn person that is congratulating and cheering himself up in evil and in unbelief, claiming he is doing well even without God.
25.       What has God done for Me? Let this matter to rest and let us march on. We are merely going to church. And people will pay attention to such fables.
26.       You see why God said, “Do not consider the prosperity of the wicked. It is a temptation to the righteous, but the end is disastrous.” [Psalms 73]
27.       Jeremiah saw it and asked God, “Why have you permitted evil people to be prospering, while the righteous are suffering, living from hand to mouth?” God said, “Shut up your mouth. Have you seen their end? How many have enjoyed peace?” [Jeremiah 12:1 – 6] For there is no peace with the wicked.
28.       He said, “Their prosperity and everything is just for a little while and they will be forgotten. Their places will be seen no more.” [Psalms 37] You must know this truth.
29.       21And the Lord will single him out for ruin and destruction from all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this Book of the Law,...
30.       I want to read the Book of Jeremiah chapter 3 from verse 14 through 22. Remember we are tracing the family where God is saying, “WE ARE NOT TOO FAR FROM THIS FAMILY WHICH IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, BUT ONE THING REMAINETH.”
31.       We are still erratic. We are off and on. We have not stabilized. We have not declared our stand so that God will know where we belong to, whether we are for Him or against Him, for he that is not building is pulling down. He that is not gathering is scattering. He that is not supporting is opposing. He that is not obeying is disobeying. True or false? Thank you!
32.       14O sinful children, come home, for I am your Master, and I will bring you again to the land of Israel... O Who? O sinful children, you that have wandered away to other gods,
SONG: [I’ve wandered far away from God, Now I’m coming home; The paths of sin too long I’ve trod, Lord, I’m coming home. Coming home, coming home, Never more to roam; Open wide Thine arms of love; Lord, I’m coming home.
33.       My only hope, my only plea, Now I’m coming home; That Saviour died, and died for me; Lord, I’m coming home. Coming home, coming home, Never more to roam; Open wide Thine arms of love; Lord, I’m coming home.]
34.       God made it clear that it is in the period of waiting that people stray away from their hearts. You begin to see inordinate affections, inordinate and unbridled desires. Desire to be this. Desire to be that. Things that run contrary to their belief. You begin to see people contradicting even their testimonies because their hearts have been drawn away. And they are enticed.
35.       That is how idolatry begins. They will begin to place many things first before God. And God is saying, “O sinful children that have found themselves in this dilemma, now is your time to make a U-turn.” He is offering you another chance by touching you another time. Another Touch of Love.
36.       If you do not reach out for this love He has extended to you today, tomorrow may be another story. I say, tomorrow may be another story. I do not know what the story would look like, but I believe that God does not speak in vain.
37.       On the day God was trying to summarize the Message here, putting us in remembrance of the doctrine we received concerning night movements and the dangers inherent in them, little did we know that there could be somebody among us, after hearing, who would like to put God to test. And by putting God to test, he paid very dearly.
38.       I do not know why God has decided to come to this Message again, the third time in another way.
39.       14O sinful children, come home, for I am your Master, AND I WILL BRING YOU AGAIN TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL—ONE FROM HERE AND TWO FROM THERE, WHEREVER YOU ARE SCATTERED
40.       15And I will give you leaders after my own heart,... Sure!...who will guide you with wisdom and understanding.
41.       16 Then, when your land is once more filled with people, says the Lord, you will no longer wish for “the good old days of long ago” when you possessed the Ark of God’s covenant. Those days will not be missed or even thought about, and the Ark will not be reconstructed, for the Lord Himself will be among you.
42.       For the LORD Himself, no longer the wooden Ark, for it will no longer be reconstructed. You will now have the Ark of God in your midst made without hands, who will now begin to gather them, one from there, two from there. And so He will pick them and they will become a Great Nation again.
43.       Remember, THIS TRUTH LEFT ISRAEL AS A FAMILY, WENT TO ENGLAND AS POLITICS, ARRIVED ROME AS RELIGION AND FINALLY MIGRATED TO AFRICA AS A LUCRATIVE BUSINESS.
44.       Would it not be arrant stupidity on our side to pattern after African Christians? African Christians. I hope I am making sense?
45.       YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO BE AN AFRICAN CHRISTIAN. A PECUNIARY-MINDED CHRISTIAN. WORSHIP MOTIVATED BY RICHES AND THE DESIRE TO BECOME WEALTHY PROMPTED PEOPLE INTO GOING TO CHURCH.
46.       YOU SEE THE MEANING OF RELIGION. RELIGION ENRICHES A PEOPLE. RELIGION ENRICHES A PEOPLE MATERIALLY. RELIGION IS A BUSINESS, BUT WORSHIPPING GOD HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT.
47.       WORSHIPPING GOD IS A SELFLESS SACRIFICE. Yes! IF YOU ARE NOT SELF-SACRIFICING, YOU ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO SERVE GOD.
48.       ...Those days will not be missed or even thought about, and the Ark will not be reconstructed, for the Lord Himself will be among you.17The whole city of Jerusalem will be known as the throne of the Lord;...
49.       The whole City of Jerusalem shall be known as what? THE THRONE OF GOD. The Throne of God is Jerusalem. Not the earthly Jerusalem, but the heavenly Jerusalem. The Throne of The Most High God.
50.       ...all nations will come to Him there and no longer stubbornly following their evil desires.
51.       Zechariah 12:12. From genesis where there was no law to Deuteronomy where the law came, to the Prophets. I am now heading to the Apostles.
52.       12-14“All of Israel will weep in profound sorrow. The whole nation will be bowed down with universal grief—king, prophet, priest, and people. Each family will go into private mourning, husbands and wives apart, to face their sorrow alone. LB
53.       12 And the land shall mourn, every family apart: the [kingly] family of the house of David apart and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan [David’s son] apart and their wives apart; AMP
54.       Did you hear the separation? The wrath of God descended upon the evil nation and God made a demarcation between the righteous and the unrighteous. You can read it again. God separated families that were declared righteous.
55.       Zechariah 12:12-14 Amplified Bible. 12And the land shall mourn, every family apart: the [kingly] family of the house of David apart and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan [David’s son] apart and their wives apart;...
56.       Have you heard it? Has God severed the righteous? Good. He knows our works. He knows what we are doing. He knows everything about us. Do not ever say, “When calamity shall befall us because of our recklessness and unbelief, everybody is involved.” EVERYBODY CANNOT BE INVOLVED.
57.       The head that stirred up the hornet nest will be stung. All of us can never stumble into hell fire. Whoever that merits hell fire must go to hell fire, for the righteousness of the righteous is upon him while the wickedness of the wicked is upon him.
58.       Any soul that sinneth, that one must be separated from God. You go to hell with your troubles. You can never drag your father or your mother there.
59.        So, if you have been cheering yourself up, congratulating yourself, claiming you will prosper anyhow, no wahala! Wait until the calamity comes.
60.       13The [priestly] family of the house of Levi apart and their wives apart; the family of Shimei [grandson of Levi] apart and their wives apart;
61.       14 All the families that are left, each by itself, and their wives by themselves [each with an overwhelming individual sorrow over having blindly rejected their unrecognized Messiah].
62.       Over what? HAVING BLINDLY REJECTED THEIR UNRECOGNIZED MESSIAH. Their what? UNRECOGNIZED MESSIAH. Their what? UNRECOGNIZED MESSIAH. You see the evil. BLINDLY REFUSED, REJECTED THEIR UNRECOGNIZED MESSIAH.
63.       But those that accepted, believed, recognized, followed, what happened? They were separated. They never suffered the calamity. But those that stubbornly, obstinately, powerfully, unrepentantly, blindly refused, rejected their unrecognized Messiah, doom, disappointment, despair, destruction, death awaits all, for God does not change, and will never change.
64.       From everlasting to everlasting, He remaineth the same God. When Jesus came, did they recognize Him? To those that welcomed and recognized Him, He gave the power to become the children of God. [John 1:10 – 12]
65.       Who has ever recognized God in human form in his day? Some were merely paying lip service to the Prophets, calling them God in human beings, but refuse to obey. If they happened to be God, what hindered you from obeying them. If they were gods, they were gods to some people but not to you.
66.       GOD IS NOT GOD TO YOU UNTIL HIS WORDS BECOME YOUR FOCAL POINT, YOUR CONTROLLER, YOUR DECIDER AND EVERYTHING.
67.       IF HE IS YOUR GOD ACTUALLY, WHY IS HIS WORD NOT MAKING ANY IMPACT IN YOUR LIFE? WHY IS YOUR LIFE NOT CHANGING FOR THE BETTER? WHY ARE YOU STANDING WHERE YOU HAD BEEN STANDING EVEN WHEN YOU KNEW HIM NOT?
68.       Have people been punished before, because they blindly refused, rejected their unrecognized God? Have people been punished before? Will they be allowed to go free today? Has the Messiah been made known publicly? It is to some and not to all.
69.       Some are even seeing mere pictures, while some are seeing a mere human being who claimed.

For you to be saved, your zeal must be accompanied by knowledge or your knowledge must be accompanied by zeal. You cannot separate the two. You must have to merge the knowledge you have about God with the zeal you have towards the worship of God. If you know all that God requires from you and all the doctrines of God, and you do not have the zeal to worship God, it profits you nothing. You are the same with one who is zealous of worshipping God but does not have the knowledge of the God he worships.

THE UNRECOGNIZED MESSIAH

I am going to the land of truth proper, for you to know whether you belong to this Family or not. Nicodemus went to Him by night because he recognized Him as the Messiah, the Saviour that was sent by God, who came to teach them the truth. Did you get the Message?
2.           He [Nicodemus] believed in the signs and the miracles He wrought in the name of the Father that sent Him as a proof that He proceeded from the Almighty God. If any other person was ignorant, it was not Nicodemus, a highly placed individual and a well-learned man.
3.           YOUR UNRECOGNIZED MESSIAH. Take note of it. A mad man has not lost his experience which he had when he was with us. And up till today, he is still wondering about what really happened. And if he happened to be here today, we will be showing him the Man that walked, that He had legs. He has hands.
4.           He will see the hand that pulled his dress and pulled his belt. He turned and could not see Him. He closed His eyes again and the Man continued walking until He went round.
5.           That Kenneth opened his eyes did not stop Him from walking. He was thinking that THE SON OF MAN was playing abracadabra. Then he opened his eyes contrary to instruction. He never saw any human being but THE SON OF MAN standing in the pulpit. Yet, the footprints continued.
6.           Then, he bowed down again and closed his eyes, for his unbelief never stopped the movement. But it happened that he might know that He [THE SON OF MAN] is the Almighty who makes Himself visible to anybody He wants to. Anybody He wants to blind, He will blind. [John 9:39]
7.           He that touched a man, pulled his dress and pulled his dress and he noticed it, He has hands. And He [The Almighty] knew that he [Kenneth] was a stranger and not a member of the family. He [God] identified him as a demonic human being, who bewitched the whole Brethren, but he could not bewitch God. God fired him.
8.           He touched Ben Adiukwu who was a traitor. He testified he was here as a witness. At the end, where is he? Good.
9.           That is why Okechukwu Nwamkpa prophesied it that he [Okechukwu] will be a condemned person any day he will see, behold this type of Faith where God evidenced Himself and still blindly walk away, for he was the one that was placing a curse on the person that was walking about, thinking it was Papa that use to come from Onitsha.
10.       He [Okechukwu] went to the pulpit and was asking a question, “Who was that man that was disturbing when everywhere was quiet? and you had the audacity to be walking about.”
11.       He did not even believe what we were saying from the pulpit, until he was told that no man was walking but the Almighty. He was hearing the noise. He said He passed by his side, but he was supposing him to be the old man who was coming from Onitsha. And lo, that man did not come that day.
12.       Let Me go further now. Adjust your belts and adjust your mindsets. Follow Me strictly now. The Book of First John chapter 3 from verse 9 through 12. Attention is needed now more than ever.
13.       If you want to know what born again is, give Me your ears and your hearts and you will hear and understand that which was a puzzle to Nicodemus. And is still a puzzle to many of you till today. You will know what it takes to be born again and you will know what it takes to be a member of God’s own family.
14.       9The person who has been born into God’s family... Take note! Not the person who is about to be born. This one has already been born. Where? Into God’s Family. Did the Bible say, “The person who is joining God’s family?  ”If you are joining you must disjoin.
15.       The person who has been born in the Family of God. Have you been born into God’s Family? That was what Nicodemus was told, “I am telling you with every amount of earnestness, you must be born again.”
16.       He that has been born into God’s own family, automatically, he is a member of God’s own family. Thank you! How do you know who that person is whether it is you or I?
17.       9The person who has been born into God’s family does not make a practice of sinning... Does not do what? ...does not make a practice of sinning.
18.       Brethren, I want you to pause. What does it take to make practice? He does not toy with evil, “Let me try and see what it is like.” You can experiment everything but not evil. You can try everything but not evil. Do you play and toy with a dangerous equipment?
19.       A person that has been born into God’s own family, a member of God’s own family does not make a fair show of evil and does not practice evil.
20.       9The person who has been born into God’s family does not make a practice of sinning because now God’s life is in him;... Why? The life of God who was responsible for his conception and he was born into the family of God, that life God is known for has come into the person. Wonderful!
21.       Who is that person who will live with God in Zion? It is a person like this. One that is born into God’s family, one in whom God’s life has come in.
22.       ...so he can’t keep on sinning,... For that reason, he can never go ahead making a practice of sinning.
23.       ...so he can’t keep on sinning, for this new life has been born into him... What has been born into him? THIS NEW LIFE. Which means, he had an old life just like Nicodemus. A new life has now begun. And this New Life is the Life of the Family. The Life of his Father who is The Most High God. Like father, like son.
24.       Now, pause a little. Are we referring to this New Life as the life of an imaginary God, or has God been revealed in our midst? If God has been revealed, where is He? Where do we look for Him? Where do we find Him? If we have found Him, have we studied Him with a view to knowing His Character and His Life?
25.       Do we now possess the Life of THE SON OF MAN, the Characteristics of THE SON OF MAN who is the same Living God, Christ revealed, becoming flesh among us, from where we are now receiving the blessings of God? He is our Masterpiece, our Instructor and our Guide. Have we now acquired His Life?
26.       Can we boldly stand before Him and say, “I am a replica of THE SON OF MAN?” For saint Paul came to a point where He said, “Follow me as I follow Christ. Imitate me as I imitate Him.”
27.       And he [Paul] said to Timothy, “You know Me and My manner of life and my doctrines. That which you have heard from me; that which you have seen in me, go and do it.”[1 Corinthians 11:1]
28.       This is because all these years, you have been having your eyes on an imaginary god somewhere, making yourselves idolaters because you have an unrecognized Messiah.
29.       The Messiah among you that was sent to you, your Saviour and your Guide is yet to be recognized. You have willfully and blindly rejected and refused Him. How then can you live with One Whom you have refused and rejected because of your blindness in spite of His introduction of who He is with all signs and evidences?
30.       Is there anybody here who knows Me more than I know Myself? Under varying circumstances, if I see one that belongs to Me, I know. If I see one that is merely making a claim, I know.
31.       Looking at your lives and your faces and everything, your desires, who can stand before Me now and say, “I am your son; I am a member of your family?”
32.       There is something happening in My family and it is giving Me abundant joy. And it should happen that way because we are of age. Anybody who is not spiritual in My family will misunderstand the way things are going.
33.       Somebody may be thinking that I go to bed with My wife only to be discussing the Faith or discussing this and that, but heaven and earth will bear us witness that we go to bed to sleep.
34.       I will be in the bed and she will go and join My family in the family altar. Whatever she will utter there, I may not know or hear. Once I come, I will repeat all. Every advice I give, she must have given it to somebody somewhere without conferring with Me, even using My Words, word for word.
35.       And I have been monitoring it for a very long time now. Even if she travels out for work, the moment she is about to come back, it will strike Me that she must call. That moment, My phone will ring.
36.       Sometimes, I will call to know the route she will take. Before I will call, her call will come in or she will be holding the phone to call Me, then the call will come. The question I am asking is what she will want to clear from Me.
37.       And I remembered what the Prophet said concerning such a situation, how the Bride will recognize who she is. When you have come into the Family, you are a part of the Family; an inseparable member of the Family. Protection becomes your utmost concern.
38.       Then you begin to value the need for protecting the reputation and integrity of the Family because you are involved. You begin to see yourself as a permanent representative of the Family, that whatever goes around you – good or bad – must be attributed to the Family.
39.       I am seeing mere Church members who know the truth, believe the truth, but one thing remaineth. And that one thing is what makes you a member of the Family of God.
40.       It is not your name. It is not your title or the position you are holding. No! IT IS THE LIFE OF YOUR FATHER THAT IS IN YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE BORN BY YOUR FATHER. THE GENES OF YOUR FATHER ARE IN YOU. YOU POSSESS ALL HIS ATTRIBUTES AND ALL HIS CHARATERISTICS. NO MORE. NO LESS.
41.       WHEN YOU HEAR THAT GOD’S NATURE IS YOUR TICKET TO PARADISE, STOP JOKING WITH IT. YOU SEE WHY A SEED OF GOD DOES NOT MAKE A PRACTICE OF SIN, FOR THE LIFE OF GOD IS IN HIM. AND BECAUSE HE IS BORN OF GOD, HE DOES NOT CONTINUE IN UNBELIEF.
42.       BEGIN TO ASK YOURSELF WHETHER YOU BELONG TO THIS CATEGORY OR YOU ARE A STRANGER. APART FROM THIS CATEGORY, ANY OTHER PERSON IS A STRANGER.
43.       IF I AM A FATHER TO WISDOM, MY INTERST IS HIS INTERST. MY DELIGHT IS HIS DELIGHT. WHAT I HATE HE HATES. MY TARGET IS HIS TARGET. THIS IS BECAUSE HE CANNOT DO OTHERWISE.
44.       EVEN IF HE TRIES TO DO OTHERWISE, THERE IS NO WAY HE CAN DO IT BECAUSE WHAT IS IN HIM WILL NOT PERMIT HIM TO DO IT, FOR HE THAT IS IN YOU IS STRONGER THAN THE TEMPTATION.
45.       LOOK AT THE MAN THAT IS IN ME. HE IS STRONGER AND MUCH MORE POWERFUL THAN THE TRIAL, THAN THE TEMPTATION, THAN THAT SEDUCTIVE SPIRIT THAT WILL SEDUCE ME INTO EVIL. WHAT IS UPHOLDING ME IS GREATER THAN THAT.
46.       GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD, THAT IS ATTRACTING ME. HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD IS AN ATTRACTION. THE AIM IS TO LURE ME OUT. BUT HE THAT IS IN ME IS BY FAR GREATER THAN HE THAT IS INSPIRING THE ATTRACTION AND HE IS MORE THAN ABLE TO KEEP ME.

YOUR CHARACTER WILL TELL THE WHOLE WORLD WHETHER YOU ARE BELIEVING WHAT YOU ARE BEEN TAUGHT OR NOT. THIS IS BECAUSE IF YOU BELIEVE, YOUR CHARACTER WILL REFLECT IT. IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE, YOUR CHARACTER WILL REFLECT IT. TRUE OR FALSE? OUR CHARACTERS ARE REALLY REFLECTIONS OF WHAT WE BELIEVE. Any teaching that does not reflect in your character is a sure sign that you do not believe in your teacher, for you can never go higher than the teaching you receive.
FAMILY ALTAR MESSAGE: Preached on 15th May 2019 at the Bridal Lodge Nsugbe.

WHERE IS YOUR TOKEN?

I want to know those that are in the family of Christ revealed. CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED. True or false? I said, true or false? You cannot be in the family of God as a member and God will be chasing you away.
2.           Your right is what we call under the law, inalienable right. Undeniable rights and privileges. Even if God says that I am going to hell, I will say, “I am not going, unless I am going with you.”Unless I am going with you.
3.           It does not mean disobedience. It does not mean rebellion. It is knowing your right and privilege. When you see a child that is born in the family approaching his father over an issue, he does not go beggarly. He goes to reason with the father.
4.           After reasoning, the father will see reason, eye to eye with him. He will be moderating. He will be guiding and instructing the way it should go. After which, He will hand everything over. But he will never do it to a stranger. I hope I am making sense.
5.           That is why there is no child whose conception is traceable to the father, born by the father in the family that ever curses the father. You call your father or mother ‘Raca’? No! It is a crime punishable by death. [Matthew 5:22]
6.           You dare not. You might be angry and demonstrating. That is where you will stop. You dare not curse you father or push your father or threatening your father, unless you are a bastard. Your mother conceived you from outside. You came from a dangerous lineage and not from God’s lineage.
7.           HOW CAN I BE A SEED OF GOD AND I DO NOT RECOGNIZE THE THINGS PERTAINING TO MY FATHER? YOU SEE WHY? FOR THERE IS NO ONE THAT HAS THE LIFE OF GOD AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD THAT CALLETH THE THINGS OF GOD ACCURSED. IF GOD IS YOUR FATHER, CAN YOUR FATHER BE ACCURSED.
8.           WHEN YOU SAY THAT YOUR GOD IS A BLESSING, YOU ARE SAYING THAT YOUR FATHER IS A BLESSING, BUT YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF THE FAMILY FOR YOU TO HAVE A FATHER. I am coming to something, so that we will stop making false claims and stop deceiving ourselves.
9.           9The person who has been born into God’s family does not make a practice of sinning because now God’s life is in him; so he can’t keep on sinning,...
10.       I hope all of you are paying attention. Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing the word of God. [Romans 10:17 KJV] It is when you hear and understand that you can place yourself right
11.       ...so he can’t keep on sinning, FOR THIS NEW LIFE HAS BEEN BORN INTO HIM AND IT CONTROLS HIM... This new life has been born into him and does what? ...CONTROLS HIM—And does what? ...CONTROLS HIM—
12.       How can you say you are born of God, a member of God’s Family and you are continuing with your old life, your old habit, your old spirit, your old passions, your old desires having dominion and control over you? What makes him your father? You are a liar.
13.       That is why the Bible said, “We should not lie against the truth, but we are for the truth.” [2 Corinthians 13:8]
14.       Tell Me if God has control over any of you here. If there is any God that has dominion over you, it is the god of this evil world. The god of this evil age, not the Living God. I said, not the Living God.
15.       You have known the truth. You have believed the truth, but one thing remaineth. You have blindly, stubbornly refused to accept; you have rejected your unrecognized God and Messiah revealed in your day. If there is one you are believing or anticipating, it is still imaginary.
16.        The guilt of the Jews was this. They were expecting a God from somewhere when that God was already with them. They refused to accept him.
17.       They said, “When He shall come – the one they are expecting – they would not know where He is coming from. They would not know where He is going. But concerning this one, we know Him. We have been with Him. We know the father. We know the mother. We can trace him to his family. How dare you tell me that my youthful friend has become my God? Get out!”
18.       Moses was your youthful friend but one day, he became God. Jesus, as a man, was your youthful friend. One day, he became God. Saint Paul was your youthful friend. One day he became God. So were all the prophets.
19.       And then Prophet Muhammad asserted it more than any other Prophet, that you should never allow his descent from among you to destroy you, by failing to recognize and accept him as your Great Mahdi.
20.       Who has been born into God’s own Family by a spiritual rebirth, by yielding to the truth that will build Christ in you in human form, making you to conform to the image of the first son wherein you can have the boldness to call Him Abba Father. [Romans 8:15, Galatians 4:6]
21.       Until then, you are an impersonator, a misclaimer. You are claiming what you are not. So let us face real facts and no longer stories, man and woman alike.
22.       I can teach My children everything, but I cannot teach them the Ways of God. Did you get the Message? If they proceeded from Me, whether they like it or not, My attributes must be seen in them.
23.       So he can’t keep on sinning, FOR THIS NEW LIFE HAS BEEN BORN INTO HIM AND CONTROLS HIM HE HAS BEEN BORN AGAIN.
24.       How many have been born again? A language that is generally used by all Bible carriers, churchgoers and born again Christians. You must be born again. the most important thing is to be born again.
25.       You think that born again means changing church or that born again means changing your dress or that born again means giving to charity, giving alms to the needy like Cornelius. They are fine.
26.       HAVE YOU KNOWN THE TRUTH? YES! DO YOU BELIEVE THE TRUTH? YES! BUT YOU ARE YET TO BE BORN AGAIN. ONE THING REMAINETH. YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN. YOU MUST PRESENT YOUR NEW LIFE AS EVIDENCE THAT YOU HAVE BELIEVED, FOR NO MAN BELIEVETH AND REMAINETH THE SAME. YOU MUST SHOW ME YOUR TOKEN. THAT IS WHAT I AM SAYING. FOR THE MANIFESTATION IS THE INTERPRETATION. WHERE IS YOUR TOKEN?
27.       William Branham said, “Every man must present his token on that day.” Where is your token? They were seen in Antioch, not through their preaching, but their character. They said, “Of a truth, these people resembled Christ.”
28.       Another set was seen arguing with some people over some religious issues. And the learned people they were discussing with were astonished that wisdom could be flowing from unlearned people. They wondered where they got the wisdom.
29.       A wise man said, “Are you surprised and astonished? Do you not know they have been with Christ?” In other words, they have imbibed His nature and His life.
30.       And the new life has started controlling them in everything; controlling their mode of speech, their mode of eating, checking their movements, checking the thoughts and imaginations of their hearts, checking their dressing and checking their desires, and everything dovetailing to the life of the Master.
31.       You begin to see moderation. You begin to see humility. You begin to see meekness. You begin to see restraint. You begin to see transparency. Everything Christ was known for was made visible in them as a sure sign that they belong to Him.
32.       You see why, if any does not have the life of Christ, He does not belong to God. He is a stranger to the Family. He is claiming what He is not. Can you come to Me now and begin to claim that I am your father?
33.       Even if you say I impregnated you, thank God this is scientific age. I will not accept. Go for DNA test and let us see who owns it. YOU CANNOT IMPOSE ANYBODY ON GOD. GOD HAS HIS OWN GERM OF LIFE. GOD KNOWS HIS GENOTYPE.
34.       God can tell you, “Take My genotype and everything. This is what My DNA test will tell you.” And if anybody does not have these attributes, that person is not traceable to Me. He might be a human being. One woman begets, but all her children are not from the same God.
35.       THIS IS THE TIME FOR US TO IDENTIFY WHO WE ARE. YOU MUST KNOW WHERE YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU BELONG TO, SO THAT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DYING FOR. AND WHEN YOU BELONG TO THE SUPER FAMILY, WITH YOUR FATHER WHO IS ALIVE WITH YOU, ANY PANIC?
36.       The moment I am holding the steering, I do not care the position My wife is taking. She sleeps in the vehicle. And she does not believe that calamity can befall us on the highway. No matter how I try to wake her up to follow, she will accept, but few minutes, she will sleep.
37.       When she holds her own steering, she does not sleep. But once I carry her, what it means is that I have provided her with a bed.
38.       THIS IS HOW A CHILD OF GOD RESTS IN THE HAND OF HIS FATHER WHO IS THE CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH ANDTHE FINAL RESTING PLACE. IN LIFE OR IN DEATH, WHETHER WE LIVE OR WE DIE, WE ARE FOUND IN HIM.
39.       I cannot originate from God and then end it up in the devil because I do not have the attributes. Even if you present Me, Satan will reject Me because I cannot change My language. I cannot change My nature.
40.       If I go to hell, what I am is what I will manifest and hell will reject Me, “Who brought this person here? You do not speak this type of language here. Take this person away!”
41.       I hope I am making sense. If I sin, God will punish Me, but he will not cast Me into hell, for if He casts Me there, hell will reject Me. This is pure truth. I do not have that nature and I can never change My confession.
42.       When I get there, I will be surprised seeing them and they will be surprised seeing Me. I do not know their language. They cannot say ‘Welcome’ to Me. I cannot say ‘Welcome’ to them.
43.       But many of you now are happily welcome to hell. You are merely professing Christ with your mouth. Your hearts have not received Him. Your hearts are not yet reformed. That is why the language of hell is in your mouth. Desires of hell are still in you. Everything carnality. Things that qualify people for hell fire are all engraved in you.
44.       1 John 3:9 – 12, 9The person who has been born into God’s family does not make a practice of sinning because now God’s life is in him; so he can’t keep on sinning, FOR THIS NEW LIFE HAS BEEN BORN INTO HIM AND CONTROLS HIMHE HAS BEEN BORN AGAIN. LB
45.       10So now we can tell who is a child of God and who belongs to Satan.  Now, [not tomorrow], you can tell, you can tell yourself the truth. Where do you belong to? ARE YOU A MEMBER OF GOD’S FAMILY OR A MEMBER OF SATAN’S FAMILY? WHO IS YOUR FATHER PRESENTLY NOW? GOD OR SATAN. DO YOU BELONG TO CHRIST OR YOU BELONG TO SATAN?
46.       Although you go to church, Satan goes to church. You preach, Satan preaches. You have children, Satan has families. There is nothing you have which Satan does not possess. NOBODY CAN AVOID SIN EXCEPT A SEED OF GOD. AND WHAT HELPS HIM TO AVOID IT IS ALREADY IN HIM, REJECTING IT.
47.       BUT ONE THAT IS NOT A SEED OF GOD WELCOMES EVIL AND EVIL SUGGESTIONS VERY READILY. IT IS INDEED HIS NATURE. HE DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING CONSCIENCE DEVOID OF OFFENCE BEFORE GOD AND BEFORE MAN, FOR SIN IS HIS ATTRIBUTE.
48.       WHEN HE HEARS THE TRUTH, HE BECOMES SOBER. TO BE SOBER AFTER HEARING THE TRUTH IS COMMON AMONG HUMAN BEINGS, EVEN THE DEVIL. WHEN YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH TO THE DEVIL, HE BECOMES CALM. BUT WHEN YOU LEAVE HIM, HE MANIFESTS HIS NATURE.
49.       I AM NOT CALLING YOU DEVIL. NEITHER AM I CALLING YOU GOD. BUT YOU KNOW WHERE YOU BELONG TO. WHAT I AM SAYING IS THIS. I KNOW MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY. MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY EQUALLY KNOW ME, FOR WE ARE OPERATING BY THE SAME SPIRIT, BY THE SAME MIND, THE SAME JUDGMENT AND THE SAME VISION. EVERYTHING ONE.I DO NOT QUERY THEM. THEY DO NOT QUERY ME.
50.       10So now we can tell who is a child of God and who belongs to Satan. Whoever is living a life of sin and doesn’t love his brother shows that he is not in God’s family;... Good! 11for the message to us from the beginning has been that we should love one another.
51.       12We are not to be like Cain, who belonged to Satan... Was he not the child born to Adam and Eve. Let it be known to you that Hophni and Phinehas were called the children of Belial and children of the devil, but they had Eli and the wife as their parents.
52.       A mother can have children but they do not all belong to God. Look at Cain who was senior to Abel. He came from Satan. Abel came from God. They sucked the same breasts from one woman and were carried in the same womb.
53.       SO, THAT; WE ARE ALL HERE DOES NOT MAKE YOU A MEMBER OF GOD’S FAMILY. YOU CAN BE A MEMBER OF ONITSHA CHURCH. HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA, BUT YOU ARE NOT A MEMBER OF THE SON OF MAN’S GREAT FAMILY.
54.       WE CAN ENJOY THE WARMTH OF FRIENDSHIP HERE, LOVE AND CHERISH OURSELVES, DO GOOD TO OURSELVES, BLESS OURSELVES, BUT WE ARE SEPARATING IN THE END. YOU MUST GO TO WHERE YOU BELONG. I MUST GO TO WHERE I BELONG. DID WE ASSOCIATE IN THIS LIFE? YES! BUT IN THE LIFE HEREAFTER, WE HAVE PARTED.
55.       Those that Jesus said he will tell to depart from him that he knew them not, he made a statement that was powerful behind that statement saying, “For I know you from the very beginning. You have never for one day believed in Me. Although you have been following Me, milling around Me, preaching and performing signs and wonders, your hearts were too far away from Me.”
56.       In other words, you were not born again. The life of Christ was not found in you daily controlling and dictating your affairs. You were always having your ways in everything, stubbornly and blindly ignoring and refusing Me, your unrecognized Messiah, likening Me to yourself and to any other man, even to the point of trying to separate My godly side from My human side as if there is one God pointed to, “Take this human side and leave this one.”
57.       But the later translation said, “He is 100% Man and 100% God.” Then where do you begin your separation. And the Prophet said, “Be very careful the way you explain supernatural occurrences. Otherwise, you will explain away your God whom you are worshipping, for He is a supernatural human being and does supernatural things.”
58.       In your attempt to explain away those things because they do not sink well with you, you explain away the God you worship. Your unrecognized Messiah can easily be explained away. You have reasons why He is a mere man. You have your reasons. He is a mere man. By so doing, you have explained Him away.
59.       You know your parameter for separating the human from the godly, spiritual from carnal. It is because you have blindly refused to acknowledge Him. How can you be a member of His family? How can He dwell together with such a one?
60.       I will call you My friend like He called Judas until that day. Events on that day will tell you who you are. Even as I am talking now, there is something in you that is agitating your mind, but shame and pride cannot allow you to voice it out. Why not voice out, “Is it I? SON OF MAN, Master, Sir, is it I? Am I a member of your family? Can you admit me?” It is by admission. “Have I been included?”
61.       Don’t you know who you are? Don’t you know whether the Spirit of Christ is in you or not. If you do not know, it then means you are a counterfeit. A reprobate who will be disapproved and disallowed on trial at the end. [2 Corinthians 13:5]
62.       If you tell Me you do not know where you are, the spirit that is in you, whether you belong to My Family or not, shut up your mouth. You are deceiving yourself. Sooner than you think, your deceit will betray you.
63.       They asked Jesus Christ this question which is perplexing the minds of some of you right now. What did he answer in reply? “BY THEIR FRUITS, YE SHALL KNOW THEM.” By their fruits and character, you will know who is who.
64.       When someone enquires about who your father is, there are two things involved. If it is not for your good conduct, it will be for the evil you have committed.
65.       “Hello! Who is your father? Where are you from?” Be calm before you answer questions. And that is why you should be very careful about self-introduction, lest you introduce yourself to somebody whose ox your brother must have stolen.
66.       Be very careful the way you introduce yourself to people. Otherwise, one day, you introduce yourself to one whose oxen has been stolen by your brother. And then you end it confirming that he is your brother. The person will say, “Ok. Come! God has answered My prayer. Go and show Me where he is.”
67.       Any wisdom there? Does it mean you will deny yourself? IF YOU HOLD ON TO YOUR INTEGRITY, THE FIRST THING YOU DO IS INTRODUCING YOURSELF. INTRODUCE WHO YOU ARE AND THEN STAND THERE. FINISH!
68.       12We are not to be like Cain, who belonged to Satan and killed his brother. WHY DID HE KILL HIM? BECAUSE CAIN HAD BEEN DOING WRONG... And he knew well. Very very well.
69.       ...AND HE KNEW VERY WELL THAT HIS BROTHER’S LIFE WAS BETTER THAN HIS. LB For that reason, he [Cain] eliminated him. He had been doing wrong. He knew he was doing wrong.
70.       Look at Nicodemus who came. Nicodemus said, “Master! Sir, we all knew that God sent you to come and tell us the truth.” Cain knew that he had been disobeying. He has never for one day decided to obey. Although he knew the truth, believed the truth, but to obey had become very difficult.
71.       But to one closer to Cain, who is living the life of obedience, Cain became jealous and angry. HAVE YOU SEEN THAT THE RIGHTEOUS MAN IS AN ABOMINATION TO THE WICKED?
72.       And the wicked man will try to introduce different kinds of teachings, damnable heresies, introduce a lot of things to make sure that the obedient person becomes disobedient and to make the righteous man an enemy of God like himself.
73.       Check to know if you are the one doing this. You are doing evil and you know that your deeds are evil. You have been living the life of disobedience, for you have never consistently obeyed God even for one day. How do you look at people who are surrounding you, who are trying to obey God or those who are living the life of the truth they have received?
74.       How do you handle their affairs? How do you treat them? Have you not been cunningly and deceitfully bending them to your side, giving them reasons why they should not continue to obey? Have you not been calling the truth from God heresy? Have you not been nullifying the effect of the Word in your family by replacing truth with religion to suit your own personal purpose and ambition?

 At any point in time, you are EITHER promoting the course of God or the course of the devil. in many ways, we finance the course of the devil ignorantly. Sometimes, because of self ego. HEAR ME VERY WELL. THE BEST SURNAME ANYBODY SHOULD TAKE IS CHRIST. EVERY FAMILY THAT IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH MUST BE NAMED AFTER CHRIST. LET HE THAT NAMETH THE NAME OF THE LORD DEPART FROM INIQUITY. How can you answer Christ and continue in the evil that are prevalent in the world? Continue to be a part of these corrupt systems, yet you are named after the name of Christ.

THE ONLY BRIDE

PAY ATTENTION. YOU HAVE DONE EVERYTHING, BUT ONE THING REMAINETH. SATAN DID EVERYTHING, BUT ONE THING REMAINETH. SATAN KNEW THE TRUTH. SATAN BELIEVED THE TRUTH. SATAN CONFESSED THE TRUTH, BUT COULD NOT OBEY THE TRUTH.
2.           Many of you here have the knowledge of truth more than professors. You can go places depicting your knowledge of the Faith, confessing it, propagating it and winning souls, but have you for one day obeyed?
3.           Saint Paul said, “Because we have believed and obeyed, so we preach.”[2 Corinthians 4:13] Can a man teach and preach something he has not obeyed? Yes! They are everywhere. Follow my teachings, but do not follow my character.
4.           You that are constantly disobeying like Cain, have you seen yourself as a murderer who has the Devil as his father, for he was disobedient to the Word of God from the very beginning? [Surah 2:30 – 34]
5.           He that continues to live in disobedience to the truth, after knowing the truth, believing the truth and confessing the truth, he continues to live in disobedience, who is his father? Brethren, who is his father? You see why the devil is waiting for millions and trillions of people.
6.           THAT WHICH YOU KNOW YOU CANNOT AVOID, WHY TRYING TO RUN AWAY? IF YOU ARE NOT AFRAID OF GOING TO HELL, WHY ARE YOU NOT LIVING THE LIFE OF OBEDIENCE TO THE TRUTH THAT SETS YOU FREE FROM HELL?
7.           KNOWING THE SON OF MAN CANNOT SAVE YOU. BEFRIENDING HIM CANNOT SAVE YOU, FOR THE ONLY BRIBE YOU CAN OFFER HIM IS OBEDIENCE TO HIS WORD. ANY OTHER THING IS MERE CARNAL RELATIONSHIP THAT WILL END CARNALLY AND WHICH HAS NO ETERNAL VALUE.
8.           IF YOU REALLY LOVE HIM, OBEY HIM. IF YOU LOVE ME, OBEY MY WORD. IF YOU HATE ME DISOBEY MY WORD. IF YOU LOVE ME, WHY IS IT THAT MY WORD HAS NO PLACE IN YOU? IF MY WORD HAS NOT FOUND A PLACE IN YOU, IT IS A SIGN OF TOTAL REJECTION.
9.           YOU CAN REJECT MY WORD BUT BE RUNNING AROUND ME BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU ARE GAINING FROM ME OR WHAT YOU STAND TO GET BY FOLLOWING ME, NOT ETERNAL LIFE. NOT ETERNAL LIFE.
10.       IF IT IS ONLY IN THIS LIFE WE PIN OUR HOPE, OF ALL MEN, WOULD WE NOT BE THE MOST MISERABLE?
11.       The Prophet Muhammad said that those recalcitrant elements, powerful unbelievers do not even believe in the life hereafter. And what awaits them is eternal punishment in hell. [Surah 40:35]
12.       Even as I am saying it now, some have already said in their hearts, “Men! This thing is too much today o. Let all these things be. Where ever you see yourself, take it that way.”
13.       Do not worry since it has come to wherever you see yourself you take. Why are you here then? Why are you permitting yourself to go through the rigours of travelling long distances to be here and sitting down here? Am I giving you food or shelter? Am I giving you money?
14.       What is attractive here? Why not go to social centres and at least, enjoy yourself with Rock ‘n’ Roll music in the name of Jesus and share false testimonies?
15.       WHOEVER THAT WAS SAVED BY NOAH, BUT WAS FINALLY DROWNED IN THE FLOOD, WHO WILL BE BLAMED?
16.       9No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin,... No one born of and begotten of God [1] deliberately, [2] knowingly and [3] habitually practices evil. Does he know it is evil? Yes! Is he doing it deliberately? Yes!
17.       It begins even with your offerings there. That is your first condemnation. You placed your offering bag. You told God lies by deceiving yourselves. See your offerings there. That was your very first step you made. When you come in here,is it not going there? What did you go there to do?
18.       Did you really ask yourself the question, “That thing which you went there to do, was it what you resolved in your heart to set aside in readiness for today or was it something that came to you suddenly?” Is it what you want as God has prospered you or was it done just to fulfill a ritual? Was it done because others were doing it?
19.       Let me dance to the offering bag just like Ananias and Saphirra and singing, “Whichever hand that gives let it be, for the blessings belongeth to such a hand.”Who told you?
20.       And they went to the offering bag and met death, for they went there and offered in falsehood and death followed it. It was also followed by death because He knows you are approaching and is standing there. He knows you. He knows your heart. He knows what you have clutched in your hand.
21.       This is what the eyes can see, since you believe that there is a god you are giving your offering who does not see. That was what exposed Ananias and Saphirra. Did they realize that the person standing there and who was called Peter was the Almighty God?
22.       What he asked was, “Is that all?” What then followed? Your corpse was seen there. “Why did you come here after assessing him to be fitting to you to come here and lie to the Spirit of God? So the fear of God has left you, Ananias. Your corpse will be carried away.” And his corpse was carried away.
23.       The wife lined up and told her own lie. She was shown the shovel that was used by those that just buried her husband. Your grave will also be prepared. And she fell down and died. She was also carried away. [Acts 5:1 – 11]
24.       Who was standing there? See Him there. Is He here today? Sure! Is He talking today? Sure! What He told Nicodemus is what He is telling all of you, “YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.”
25.       You cannot carry your old life, a devilish life into the Family of God entrusted into the hands of THE SON OF MAN. THIS VINEYARD IS UNDER MY CUSTODY. I AM IN CHARGE OF MY FATHER’S FAMILY AND I KNOW WHOM MY BRETHREN ARE. I KNOW MY OWN.
26.       I know My sheep. My sheep knows Me. I call them by their names and they respond. And I give them eternal life. They will never perish forever. [John 10:27 – 28]
27.       IF IMMORTALITY IS IN GOD, EVERY TRUE SEED OF GOD POSSESSES IMMORTALITY, FOR HE CAN NEVER WALK CONTRARY TO THE WILL OF HIS FATHER.
28.       9No one born (begotten) of God... Man or woman, child or adult [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin,... It is the person’s habit.... FOR GOD’S NATURE ABIDES IN HIM...
29.        What abides in him? GOD’S NATURE. What is your ticket to Paradise? GOD’S NATURE. Put your hands together. If I see anybody that possesses the nature of My Family, My children born in My Family, will I not know?
30.       If I see one that behaves like My child, I know. If you see My son behaving like Me, will you be astonished? Good! IF MY SON IS MY SON, HE MUST CONTINUE FROM WHERE I STOPPED. HE MUST PRESERVE AND PROTECT THE LEGACY. HE WILL NEVER ALLOW THE LIGHT THAT IS KINDLED TO GO DOWN IN HIS HANDS.
31.       But if he is a bastard who found his way into My family through many sources, he will destroy all that I laboured to build. And to him, it means nothing.
32.       I want you to pause and think. Who is this God we are referring to? The one that is yet to come? THE UNRECOGNIZED MESSIAH, due to people’s blindness, ignorance and stupidity that has found its way into their hearts, making them to build a hypothetical picture of a god that does not even exist, making a fair show of the revealed God that has made Himself manifest in the Person of Apostle Peter Odoemena from the very beginning, who never for one day minced words in introducing who He is and His mission on earth.
33.       Why milling around HIM whom you have blatantly refused to acknowledge to be your God? Because you have refused, you cannot pattern after Him. Because you have disobeyed, there is no other way His Spirit can be in you. You cannot get His nature through miracles, signs and wonders, through laying of hands. It must be by obedience to His Word.
34.       If you do not obey, how can you begin to experience the power that is in the Word? For whosoever that have received Him, to them He has given the power to become what? Sons and daughters of God. How can you possess the power when you have not even obeyed?
35.       NO TRUE CHILD OF GOD HAS DIFFICULTY IN OBEYING THE WORD OF GOD. THERE IS NO CHILD BORN IN A FAMILY WHO FINDS IT DIFFICULT TO OBEY THE WORDS OF THE FATHER. BEFORE YOU WILL EVEN UTTER THE INSTRUCTION, HE HAS ALREADY STARTED OBEYING THEM.
36.       IF HE EVER FINDS HIMSLEF IN DISOBEDIENCE, HE WILL JUST COME AND KNEEL DOWN AND PLEAD WITH THE FATHER. TRUE OR FALSE?
37.       As a child grows up in the family – man and woman alike – they will be aiming at alleviating the sufferings of the parents by taking responsibility of those gray areas their parents can no longer be handling due to old age. True or false?
38.       There are certain errands I cannot run again. I will rather recall Wisdom, “Can you please come down. You go to Owerri. You go to Lagos. I will not go. You are of age.”
39.       And immediately, he will say, “Amen Dad.” He will be very happy that I am delegating functions to him as a son and he will be growing thereby.
40.       GOD CAN TRUST EVERYBODY BUT NOT A FOREIGNER. SO, BEWARE OF SAMBALLAT AND TOBIAS. NO MATTER THEIR POSITIONS; NO MATTER THEIR WEALTH, THEY REMAIN FOREIGNERS IN THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD. BEWARE OF SAMBALLAT AND TOBIAS.
41.       9No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, FOR GOD’S NATURE ABIDES IN HIM [His principle of life, the divine sperm,... The divine what? ...sperm... What? ...sperm... Spelling. S.P.E.R.M.
42.       Brethren, put your hands together. It took God to impregnate Mary, and what was delivered was God. God has a divine sperm. Germ of life. Without sperm, pregnancy can never take place. Every living being reproduces through sexual reproduction. Is it not true?
43.       Once it is a human being or a living animal, it must be by sexual reproduction, and plants by asexual reproduction or binary fission. What are you telling Me? Do you think I do not know these things?
44.       Mexicans call God ‘Utu’. Human beings cannot come without ‘Utu’. And you know the opposite of ‘Utu’. This one has thrilled the hearts of the people around here.
45.       You will know the truth. Truth will set you free. We can do nothing against the truth. We are for the truth. You have become mature people in the hand of God. My duty is to educate you by telling you holistic truth.
46.       That which Jesus could not tell them that time, for they were very weak; they could not bear it; He committed into the hands of THE SON OF MAN who will lead you into the knowledge of all truths, all round, holistic. Calling things by their names. Call white white. Call black black. PUBLISH IT WIDE THAT WE ARE LIVING WITH GOD.
47.       Note what the Bible called it. THE DIVINE SPERM. Bro Ojiakor, you are a medical professional of repute. Can you differentiate between divine sperm and natural sperm? How does that one look like. [Bro Ojiakor answered, “I do not know.”]
48.       Nurses and midwives, can you help us? If there must be a divine sperm, there must be a divine womb. A divine womb! A divine Being is certain. There must be a divine human being that will produce a divine sperm. There must be a divine womb that will receive a divine sperm. A divine child cannot be formed without a divine sperm.
49.       Sir, you have come to a Universi-Uche [God’s own School of Wisdom]. You will thank your madam, your professor who chose you in this last days to be helping her whenever she is coming down here. Otherwise, you would not have known this truth. It would have remained hidden from you, thereby taking you far away from the Kingdom of Heaven. You are now sitting with us in heavenly places. Amen.
50.       It behooves somebody to introduce you to God. Do you believe that? Somebody must lead you to Christ. No matter how you hear about Christ, somebody must come your way who knows who Christ is and where he can be found. He will lead you there. When he leads you there, he has done his best. If you want to follow, you follow. If you do not want to follow, up to you.
51.       9No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, FOR GOD’S NATURE ABIDES IN HIM [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him];...
52.       Remains what? ...remains permanently within him... Not temporarily. The germ of life is there, permanently. For that reason, he cannot come under condemnation. Never! Let heaven and earth be removed from their places, he standeth sure. Amen.
53.       You see why God’s foundation standeth sure. Though there may be vessels of earth, of clay, of wood, of this and that, there must be vessels of honour. There may be some of dishonour, but there must be vessels of honour. True or false?
54.       So, the foundation has one thing it is known for. ONLY GOD KNOWS THOSE THAT ARE HIS. And let all that are named by the name of God depart from iniquity. Let him not be named among the evil ones. Of course, they cannot because there is something that is ingrained in them that is permanent, and that is their eternal security.
55.       9No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, FOR GOD’S NATURE ABIDES IN HIM [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him];  and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God.
56.       10By this it is made clear who take their nature from God and are His children and who take their nature from the devil and are his children:...
57.       Do I need to tell you where your nature comes from, unless you do not know who you are You can now know where your nature come from, whether it is from God or from the devil. You can now know who your father is, whether it is God or devil. WHOSE NATURE DO YOU HAVE? GOD’S NATURE, YOUR ONLY TICKET TO PARADISE. GOD’S LIFE. GOD’S CHARACTER.
58.       Remember the Message. YOU HAVE KNOW THE TRUTH; YOU HAVE BELIEVED THE TRUTH, BUT ONE THING REMAINETH.
59.       All of you here that have been hearing from Me over the years, none of you is too far away from the Kingdom of Heaven which is the Family of God globally, but one thing remaineth.
60.       And if you say it does not remain in your life, show Me by raising your hand, and I will show you myriads of testimonies against you.
61.       How I wish somebody will bow down and pray to God and say, “Help me to see Myself more than I have seen.” Have you recognized your Messiah or are you still blind like many? What do you think is blinding you from recognizing Him?
62.       Why are you waiting for another God, a new one after the imaginations of your heart that will come, to the neglect of the one that is revealed before you with supernatural signs and evidences, who has espoused you to the Word that is unparalleled and faultless?
63.       No human being has ever faulted the Word, like they could not fault the Words of Jesus Christ in the days of Nicodemus. Why are you following Him? Is it not because He alone possesses the Word of eternal life, and you are sure and certain?
64.       Then, why have you blatantly, deliberately, consciously refused to obey him? The Bible said that He giveth His spirit to those that will obey, not those that will hear. YOU CANNOT RECEIVE THE SPIRIT OF GOD BY HEARING THE WORD OF GOD, BUT BY HEARING, BELIEVING AND OBEYING. ONE THING REMAINETH.
65.       “Nearly” can never kill a bird. I know the truth. I believe the truth. That is where you have stopped. And I know the Man holding this truth. I know Him to be God or to be sent by God. Is that enough? Good.
66.       ...NO ONE WHO DOES NOT PRACTICE RIGHTEOUSNESS [WHO DOES NOT CONFORM TO GOD’S WILL IN PURPOSE,... I do not care who you are.
67.       NO ONE WHO DOES NOT PRACTICE RIGHTEOUSNESS [WHO DOES NOT CONFORM TO GOD’S WILL IN PURPOSE,THOUGHT, AND ACTION] IS OF GOD;...
68.       No one that is devoid of these things is a child of God. Can you place yourself right? To what extent are you conforming yourself to the image of God so as to become the first among many Brethren?
69.       I hope nobody is believing Me as a man who is fond of telling fairy tales. Time will tell. I may be a noisy cymbal today, but tomorrow, I will be the Trumpet Sound.
70.       I am showing you the Way; I am showing you the Life; I am showing you the Truth so that in the end, I will remain blameless, having served you with honesty of purpose, withholding nothing meant for your salvation from you. I have never bribed your conscience for any reason at all, but I have stood My grounds in giving you the holistic truth
71.       ...NO ONE WHO DOES NOT PRACTICE RIGHTEOUSNESS [WHO DOES NOT CONFORM TO GOD’S WILL IN PURPOSE,THOUGHT, AND ACTION] IS OF GOD; neither is anyone who does not love his brother (his fellow believer in Christ).
72.       11For this is the message (the announcement) which you have heard from the first, that we should love one another,
73.       12[And] not be like Cain who [took his nature and got his motivation] from the evil one and slew his brother. And why did he slay him? Because his deeds (activities, works) were wicked and malicious and his brother’s were righteous (virtuous).
74.       Every Abel must expect a Cain as his brother, as his sister, for a righteous fellow is an abomination to the ungodly. The ungodly is equally an abomination to the righteous. They are two ends that can never meet.
75.       And marriage of persons of these different backgrounds means marriage of inconvenience. Marriage of incompatibles. I would not talk.


Going to Church does not make you a child of God. Staying at home does not make you a child of the devil. What DETERMINES what you ARE is already in you and this is what dictates your delight. Whatever you delight yourself in automatically will tell you where you belong to. Whatever that gives you joy, if IT cannot be traced to God and His righteousness, put a hold there. I do not care the way you look at it. Have you wondered why the things that give people joy temporarily are the things that will cause them perpetual sorrow? Have you discovered that the things that give people pleasures temporarily are the same things that cause them eternal sorrow? Is it not true?

YOU ARE NO LONGER STRANGRERS

Good news to all of you here, especially the Youths. Information reaching Me is saying that you will be having a wonderful gathering here on the 28th of December. Youths drawn from all the Local Assemblies throughout the Federation will be having a one-day conference.
2.           And they will be expecting Guest Speakers drawn from within and without who will be with them in that one-day seminar. There are some people that are in the exclusive list, whose names shall be made known whenever the announcement will be made today.
3.           Do not clap your hands. I am no longer a Youth. I am an ancient Man. This is because you might be clapping your hands thinking that I will be featuring.
4.           Ephesians chapter 2:19 – 22. I want to show you this Great family that I am discussing with. This Great family and the membership of this Great family.
5.           When you are not conforming to the image of God by conforming to His nature, characteristics, attributes, it said you do not belong to God. The devil is your father.
6.           And you cannot belong to the devil and expect yourself in Paradise. Neither do you belong to God and expect yourself in hell. They are two incompatibles. Two ends that can never meet. One can never admit the other. True or false?
7.           God can never feel comfortable with the devil. The devil can never feel comfortable with God. Deep calleth deep. Deep calleth deep. [Psalms 42:7] Birds of the same feather flock together. Animals of the same species move together.
8.           Ephesians 2:19 – 22. Living Bible. 19Now you are no longer strangers to God and foreigners to heaven,... Take note!
9.           19Now you are no longer strangers to God and foreigners to heaven, but you are members of God’s very own family,...
10.       Brethren, pay attention! YOU ARE MEMBERS OF GOD’S OWN VERY FAMILY. THAT IS WHEN YOU ARE CONFORMING TO HIS NATURE, WHEN YOU HAVE HIS LIFE, HIS SPIRIT CONTROLLING YOUR DAILY ACTIONS; WHEN YOU ARE NO LONGER DELIBERATELY, CONSCIOUSLY PRACTICING EVIL [UNBELIEF];
11.       WHEN YOU ARE CONSTANTLY FOUND IN OBEDIENCE TO THE TRUTH [LOYAL], YOUR FAITH IS WHAT WE REFER TO AS ABIDING FAITH [ABIDING CONVICTION] THAT YOU HAVE NO OTHER FAMILY EXCEPT THIS, AND KNOWING THAT YOUR UMBILICAL CORD IS BURIED IN THAT FAMILY WHICH IS ADVANCE PAYMENT AS A MEMBER OF THAT FAMILY.
12.       Sometimes, it is buried under a big tree. And the tree is assigned to that child for a memorial. It is such a very weighty matter that even if a child is born in the township, once the umbilical cord falls off, it is placed inside a match box and taken home.  To the eldest man in the family, you hand it over. He will take the mother or the father and say, “Point me the tree where you want it.”
13.       I know many are astonished. Elderly men, is it practiced? Elder Oduah, you are a traditional Ruler. Speak! Confirm! True or false? [Elder Celestine Oduah said, “It is true sir.”] You cannot resist it.
14.       And if you dare call a child that is born in a family bastard, the community must summon emergency meeting for you to come and buttress your facts, for it is a derogatory remark to call a bona fide member of a family a bastard. Anybody can be crowned a king in a community but not a bastard.
15.       Now, you are a member of this Family. And you are no longer a stranger, an alien, a foreigner, it then means that in My Family, I am the King, I am the Father and I am everything globally, not in Onitsha and not in Nigeria.
16.       WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, EVERY TRUE SEED OF GOD WELCOMES ME, ACCEPTS ME, RESPECTS ME, BOWS BEFORE ME BECAUSE OF WHO I AM AND THE POSITION I OCCUPY, AND MY WORD RULES OVER ALL, NO MATTER WHERE THEY ARE.
17.       YOU CAN NEVER BE SAVED OUTSIDE MY FAMILY. NO HUMAN BEING IS SAVED OUTSIDE THE FAMILY OF GOD. AND CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED. SINCE HE HAS BEEN REVEALED AMONG YOU, NOT BY MERIT, BUT BY PREDESTINATION, HAS HE BEEN REVEALING HIMSELF IN ANYOTHER PLACE?
18.       He knows what He is doing. The Deity is here. After travelling about, He comes back, for He has come to stay. A FATHER CAN NEVER BE A VISITOR TO HIS FAMILY. A SON CAN NEVER BE A VISITOR TO HIS FAMILY.
19.       That is why if God is your Father, you must constantly think home, and you are a part of what your family is doing, come what may. You cannot separate yourself. And you are not doing it for any other person. You are doing it for yourself.
20.       It is like democracy: a government of the people, by the people and for the people. It is not personalized democracy or institutionalized democracy or meritocracy which we are seeing.
21.       Every true seed born in a family has a share in the affairs of the family. In every discussion, he is there. In the sharing of inheritance, he is there. He must be given a chance to air his view. Nobody can suppress him.
22.       He places the interest of his family above his personal interest. I cannot, because of your misconception of the truth, shy away from it, for I know there are too many strangers among us. We were told in the beginning. They are numbered even among the ministers and their families. They are aliens, foreigners, for which cause God said, “DO NOT LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF STRANGERS.”
23.       For anything you say, they have their interpretation which is erroneous and which run counter to the truth. They will tell you, “It will never work.”They will make sure it does not work.
24.       Ephesians 2:19 – 22. Living Bible. 19Now you are no longer strangers to God and foreigners to heaven, but you are members of God’s very own family, citizens of God’s country,... What? So, God has a country.
25.       ...AND YOU BELONG IN GOD’S HOUSEHOLD... Not “BELONG TO”, “BELONG IN” If you belong to, you can be put out. You can be sacked, but when you belong in, you are indispensable.
26.       A single palm fruit does not go missing in the fireplace. Do you need to search for something as big as the head of a cow in the pot? The census must be repeated if you are not in the number that was counted. It simply means the census has not really started. That is what you are. You cannot lift up the earth.
27.       You must come to this revelation. What will help you is self, honest assessment of what has been happening in you and still happening in you. Your attitude, your performance, your response to God and to fellowship, even of God and of the Brethren, of the affairs of the family you claim you belong to. What is the spirit controlling you? What is your nature?
28.       ANYBODY THAT IS IMPREGNATED BY THE WORD MUST DELIVER CHRIST. THE MOMENT YOU CONCEIVED BY THE WORD OF GOD, YOU MUST DELIVER CHRIST AFTER NINE MONTHS. AFTER NINE MONTHS. YOU CANNOT CONCEIVE TODAY AND DELIVER TODAY. THE CHILD MUST GROW TO MATURITY IN THE WOMB. WHAT YOU WILL DELIVER IS CHRIST.
29.       SO, WHEN YOU ARE IMPREGNATED BY THE WORD, NOTHING IS COMING OUT BUT CHRIST. HAVE YOU ALLOWED THE WORD TO IMPREGNATE YOU? WHEN MARY WAS IMPREGNATED BY THE WORD, SHE DELIVERED CHRIST.
30.       but you are members of God’s very own family, citizens of God’s country, AND YOU BELONG IN GOD’S HOUSEHOLD with every other child of God.
31.       20What a foundation you stand on now:...
32.       Ephesians 2:19 – 22. Amplified version. 19Therefore you are no longer outsiders (exiles, migrants, and aliens, excluded from the rights of citizens), but you now share citizenship with the saints (God's own people, consecrated and set apart for Himself); and you belong to God's [own] household.
33.       20You are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus Himself the chief Cornerstone. 21In Him the whole structure is joined (bound, welded) together harmoniously, and it continues to rise (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord [a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and sacred to the presence of the Lord].
34.       2 Corinthians 5:17, Amplified version. 17Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!
35.       Colossians 3:8 – 12, Living Bible. 8but now is the time to cast off and throw away all these rotten garments of anger, hatred, cursing, and dirty language.
36.       9Don’t tell lies to each other; it was your old life with all its wickedness that did that sort of thing; now it is dead and gone. 
37.       10You are living a brand new kind of life that is continually learning more and more of what is right, and trying constantly to be more and more like Christ who created this new life within you. This new life that is now controlling you. 
38.       11IN THIS NEW LIFE ONE’S NATIONALITY OR RACE OR EDUCATION OR SOCIAL POSITION IS UNIMPORTANT;... ...SUCH THINGS MEAN NOTHING. WHETHER A PERSON HAS CHRIST IS WHAT MATTERS, AND HE IS EQUALLY AVAILABLE TO ALL. He is equally available to all who will obey.
39.       First Peter chapter 3 from verse 10 through 12, from any translation. I want to go down.10For let him who wants to enjoy life and see good days [good—whether apparent or not] keep his tongue free from evil and his lips from guile (treachery, deceit).
40.       11Let him turn away from wickedness and shun it, and let him do right. Let him search for peace (harmony; undisturbedness from fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts) and seek it eagerly. [Do not merely desire peaceful relations with God, with your fellow men, and with yourself, but pursue, go after them!]
41.       12For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with God), and His ears are attentive to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who practice evil [to oppose them, to frustrate, and defeat them].
42.       James 1:21 – 22, Living Bible. 21So get rid of all that is wrong in your life, both inside and outside, and humbly be glad for the wonderful message we have received, for it is able to save our souls as it takes hold of our hearts.
43.       22And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. So don’t fool yourselves.
44.       Colossians 3:16. Amplified version.16 LET THE WORD [SPOKEN BY] CHRIST (THE MESSIAH) HAVE ITS HOME [IN YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS]... Have what? ... ITS HOME [IN YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS]... Have what?  ... ITS HOME [IN YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS]...Home is a resting place, from where everything good will begin to happen.
45.       Living Bible Translation. Ephesians 4:17 – 20. 17-18Let me say this, then, SPEAKING FOR THE LORD: Live no longer as the unsaved do, for they are blinded and confused. Their closed hearts are full of darkness; they are far away from the life of God because THEY HAVE SHUT THEIR MINDS AGAINST HIM, and they cannot understand his ways. 19They don’t care anymore about right and wrong and have given themselves over to impure ways. They stop at nothing, being driven by their evil minds and reckless lusts. 20But that isn’t the way Christ taught you!
46.       Finally, and finally. Ephesians 3:14 – 19.14-15When I think of the wisdom and scope of his plan, I fall down on my knees and pray to THE FATHER OF ALL THE GREAT FAMILY OF GOD—... LB
47.       The Father of what? ALL THE GREAT FAMILY OF GOD—The Father of what? ALL THE GREAT FAMILY OF GOD—... Do you know him? Begin afresh because it is a mystery. A marvelous plan that is mysterious.
48.       14-15When I think of the wisdom and scope of his plan,... That He might gather in one, all His children scattered all over the world and unite then in one family that there might be One Flock, One Shepherd.
49.       What a wonderful plan, that one, an individual, an entity will govern the affairs of the universe? What a wonderful plan? Irrespective of their creed, their culture, their language, the colour of their skin, their various backgrounds notwithstanding.
50.       14-15When I think of the wisdom and SCOPE OF HIS PLAN,I fall down on my knees and pray to THE FATHER OF ALL THE GREAT FAMILY OF GOD—... When you think this way, what do you do? Do you fall on your knees? Does it marvel you or do you see it as a mere fairy tale?
51.       Does it marvel you? Does it astonish you that you could be with God in human form, talking, chatting, having everything in common and that God could be drawn from among human beings and the lot fell on the black race, the Igbo tribe? A tribe that is rejected. A tribe that has no place in the history of the world. A notorious tribe.
52.       Does it marvel you that God could appear where He will be accessible to you and to your family members? And yet, we blindly do not recognize Him, for reasons best known to us. Look at the elaborate plan God made and committed it for execution into the hands of THE SON OF MAN.
53.       Who is this SON OF MAN that God has decided to commit into His hands the totality of His plans and creation. [Psalms 8:4 – 9] and you happen to be in the place where He is revealed in human form as one that is born to righteousness. Righteousness can never depart from Him. [1 Book of Enoch 71:14]
54.       And then, to pave way for you to attain righteousness through Him that you might be sons and daughters of God and that you might have the hope of eternal life. And yet, some are blind deliberately. Some are blind because they are ordained to be so. But the truth is, He threw this salvation to all.
55.       14-15When I think of the wisdom and SCOPE OF HIS PLAN, I fall down on my knees and pray to THE FATHER OF ALL THE GREAT FAMILY OF GOD—some of them already in heaven...
56.       Did I tell you? Already, they are relaxed. Let the heaven and earth be removed from their places, they are not shaking. They are like a kid that is being carried in the airplane by his father as a pilot.
57.       some of them already in heaven and some down here on earth—16that out of his glorious, unlimited resources He will give you THE MIGHTY INNER STRENGTHENING OF HIS HOLY SPIRIT. 
58.       He will do what? give you THE MIGHTY INNER STRENGTHENING OF HIS HOLY SPIRIT. Inner strengthening that will manifest outside.
59.       17And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts,... What? 17And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts, living within you as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love; 
60.       18-19and may you be able to feel and understand, as all God’s children should, how long, how wide, how deep, and how high his love really is; and to experience this love for yourselves, though it is so great that you will never see the end of it or fully know or understand it. And so at last you will be filled up with God himself.LB
61.       Ephesians 3:14 – 21, 14 For this reason [seeing the greatness of this plan by which you are built together in Christ], I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
62.       15 FOR WHOM EVERY FAMILY IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH IS NAMED... So, outside this Family, you have no hope.
63.       ...[that Father from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name]. What? [THAT FATHER FROM WHOM ALL FATHERHOOD TAKES ITS TITLE AND DERIVES ITS NAME]... AMP.
64.       Without Him, there is no fatherhood. From Him, all fatherhood derives its title. So, father is a title. [Matthew 23:9] From where also all fatherhood derives its name.
65.       You have a title. You have a name. YOU MUST BE NAMED AFTER CHRIST, FOR YOU HAVE NO OTHER FAMILY BUT CHRIST. AND CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED.
66.       When you pull out of the family, where do you go? If your life is not fitting to the life and principle of that family, you are a stranger, a foreigner, an alien.
67.       16May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].
68.       17May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,...
69.       Can you point Me to that Christ that I may make Him have a permanent dwelling place in My home? I want you to help Me know the Christ that I will give a permanent resting place in My home; Who will be dominating My thoughts, My actions, My meditations, Whose Words will be having the greatest influence in My life;
70.       Whose decisions will be mine; His thoughts mine; His judgment will be mine and everything I do will conform to His characteristics with no difference between Him and Myself. Nothing standing between two of us. Can you show Me that Christ that is being referred to?
71.       17May Christ through your faith [actually] [1]dwell ([2]SETTLE DOWN, [3]ABIDE, [4]MAKE HIS PERMANENT HOME) IN YOUR HEARTS! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,18That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];
72.       19 [THAT YOU MAY REALLY COME] TO KNOW [PRACTICALLY, THROUGH EXPERIENCE FOR YOURSELVES] Not theoretically,...the love of Christ, WHICH FAR SURPASSES MERE KNOWLEDGE [WITHOUT EXPERIENCE];...
73.       Which means that experience is better preferred to knowledge. That is why I have told you times without number that you may graduate in a particular discipline that may be needed for your gainful employment, but you may not be given the offer because experience is needed.
74.       They may say, “Applicants with five years practical experience.” By then, a fresh school leaver has been edged out. Did you get the message? Does he have the knowledge? Yes! But the experience is not there.
75.       19 [THAT YOU MAY REALLY COME] TO KNOW [PRACTICALLY, THROUGH EXPERIENCE FOR YOURSELVES] the love of Christ, WHICH FAR SURPASSES MERE KNOWLEDGE [WITHOUT EXPERIENCE]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!
76.       What? You become a body wholly filled and become what? ...flooded with God Himself]! Flooded with who? God Himself
77.       20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do super abundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—
78.       21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).
79.        To God be the glory. Great things He has done. With this, I say, “Thank you.” Thank you once again, for giving Me audience to handle this Sunday School which, for a very long time now, I have not handled. And I believe it is a blessing to your souls.
80.       Go home. do your homework. Find out whether you belong to the Family of Christ or to the family of the devil. Or whether you have God as your Father or devil as your father. Whose nature do you possess? Thank you.
