WHAT IS EXPECTED OF US AT A TIME LIKE THIS? Preached On Sunday 29th March, 2020 At The Bridal Lodge, Nsugbe, Anambra State, Nigeria By PASTOR WISDOM ODOEMENA MODERATED BY THE SON OF MAN Apostle Peter Odoemena THE MOST COMPASSIONATE BEING

Let man cast off their wicked deeds; let them banish from their minds the very thought of doing wrong! Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy upon them, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

ISAIAH 55 VS 7(LB).
1
SEEK GOOD AND NOT EVIL
Amos 3:1 – 8. Living Bible version. 1LISTEN! This is your doom! God said first of all listen. Everybody should listen. It is spoken by the LORD against both Israel and Judah – Against the entire family I brought from Egypt:
2.           2“Of all the peoples on earth,... Listen, this is your doom! Israel inclusive. I have chosen you. That is why I must punish you the more for all your sin.
3.           This is because, out of the whole population of the world, God called and selected only you and I and look at all the evidences He had shown us, all to prove that He is God.
4.           After all these experiences and supernatural displays and we are still found in unbelief. God is saying, “That is why He will punish you the more.” More severely!
5.           3FOR HOW CAN WE WALK TOGETHER WITH YOUR SINS BETWEEN US?”
6.           4“Would I be roaring as a lion, unless I had a reason? THE FACT IS, I AM GETTING READY TO DESTROY YOU. Even a young lion, when it grows shows it is ready for its food.”
7.           5A trap does not snap shut unless it is stepped on; Does a trap grab the leg of one who has not stepped on it.
8.           So, God has been shouting for everybody, but now he has set a trap for the whole world. That is why He said that judgment will first of all start with you all that believe. In the house of God!
9.           He said, “How can I be walking with you and still iniquity is found in your heart.”
10.       ...YOUR PUNISHMENT IS WELL DESERVED. You deserve it! The alarm has sounded... The alarm sounded long time ago.
11.       BLOW THE TRUMPET IN ZION. Check all the Messages: THIS GENERATION IN PROPHECY
12.       Tell My people and your people that time is no more. Warning us. Not warning the world. Warning His own, for He revealed Himself to His own, and not to the world. Warning His people, but they paid deaf ears. They thought He was kidding. But God said, “I will no longer chide.”
13.       That is why He said, “I will punish you the more.” Now we have heard God’s proclamation, that He will speak coronavirus into the families because they have disobeyed God for a long time.
14.       This one has already happened. Speak it into existence and into a family and wipe them off for spurning grace. Spurning the Word of God for too long.
15.       listen and fear! For I, the LORD, am sending disaster into your land.
16.       So, are we surprised at what is happening today? The alarm had sounded and we are worshipping the same God of yesterday, today and forever. That is why we are not shaking. We are not afraid of what is happening at all. Rather, it is giving us joy.
17.       God said, “When we see all these things happening, you go and search the Scriptures and the Message to know what God has said concerning your time.”
18.       Yes! You have never seen revival yet, until these little ones that are born in this Faith survive and start handling the Word.
19.       These things were written afore time, for our learning, for admonishment, for us to learn something from the previous times. And God is doing the same thing.
20.       7“But always, first of all, I warn you through my prophets. This I now have done.” 8The LORD has roared – tremble in fear. The LORD God has sounded your doom – I dare not refuse to proclaim it.
21.       Amos 5:14 – 18. Living Bible14Be good, flee evil – and live! God said,” Let them remove every trace of evil.” Let He that nameth the name of the LORD, depart from iniquity. [2 Timothy 2:19 KJV]
22.       Get rid of everything that is wrong in your life.
23.       14Be good, flee evil – and live! Or be bad. Stay with evil and die.
24.       THEN THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS WILL TRULY BE YOUR HELPER, as you have claimed He is. And He surely is.
25.       15HATE EVIL AND LOVE THE GOOD; REMODEL YOUR COURTS INTO TRUE HALLS OF JUSTICE.
26.       Amos 5:14 – 15 Amplified Version. 14Seek (inquire for and require) good and not evil that you may live, and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you, as you have said.
27.       15Hate the evil and love the good and establish justice in the [court of the city's] gate. It may be that the Lord, the God of hosts, will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph [the northern kingdom].
28.       Amos 5:14 – 15 New International Version. 14Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the LORD God Almighty will be with you, just as you say He is.
29.       15Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts. Perhaps the LORD God Almighty will have mercy on the remnants of Joseph.
30.       Amos 5:15 – 18. Living Bible. 15Hate evil and love the good; REMODEL YOUR COURTS... God said, “If you cannot do U-turn, somersault into the other lane.” Is it confirming the Word? Is it confirming the Message? Change you course.
31.       You might be moving at a high speed, but God said, “Apply a dangerous U-turn. If it is possible, somersault into the other lane. It is better you somersault and die on the right lane than to continue on the previous lane into hell fire.”
32.       He is now saying, “Remodel your courts right now.”
33.       Apply your brakes immediately. March the brake pedal instantly. Somersault into the other lane.
34.       Remodel your course. Do not say, “If it is hell, let me go there.” It is not yet late. Remodel your course and go to Heaven. Remodel it immediately.
35.       Brother Ifeanyi said it. Ifeanyi Ubani said he never knew he was running very fast on a highway to perdition when he thought he was one of the pillars in the Church at Aba.
36.       He said that he did not know that he was on a highway, running speedily into hell. It can be your own condition.
37.       It can be our condition, but God is saying that it is not yet late. Remodel your course today. Today, when you hear the Voice of God, harden not your heart.
38.       Do not ever let today be wasted for you. This maiden edition of this worship is a reference point. In the Bride, it is a reference point. A sure sign that God is here. Starting from our praises. In short, God is here, live.
39.       If you are not feeling the impact the way it is happening to others, know that you are a stranger in our midst. A visitor. You do not know what is happening. You are merely looking on.
40.       No man is talking to us, for we prayed for the anointing over all that will minister today. They are talking as oracles of God. I am here. We have never had it this way even in the Fellowship at GTC because of mixed multitude.
41.       Amos 5:15 – 18. Living Bible. 15Hate evil and love the good; REMODEL YOUR COURTS INTO TRUE HALLS OF JUSTICE. Perhaps even yet the LORD God of Hosts will have mercy on HIS PEOPLE WHO REMAIN.
42.       16Therefore the LORD God of Hosts says this: “There will be crying in all the streets and every road. Brethren, is it not happening today.
43.       The LORD God will do nothing, but revealeth His Word to His servants the prophets. The same Amos. [Amos 3:7]
44.        Call for the farmers to weep with you too; call for professional mourners to wail and lament. There will be sorrow and crying in every vineyard, for I will pass through and destroy.
45.       Throughout the whole world, they are lamenting. And God said that this is just a tip of the iceberg. God said that this is just “Good morning”.
46.       This is “Good morning” to the world. Many had it in mind that when it happens they will run down to Nsugbe to see the SON OF MAN. Now, interstate movements have been banned. Nobody will come looking for Me from his or her location. Yes! We now talk over the phone.
47.       18You say, ‘If only the day of the LORD were here, for then God will deliver us from all our foes.’ But you have no idea what to ask.
48.       That is why God said that you should not say, “If it is hellfire, let me go there.” He said that you should not even think about it. Do not let it come to your mind at all.
49.       Once you utter it, God will stamp it. another one is this: “Let that thing which is slated for tomorrow happen today.”
50.       Every day the same warning will be going to the same person. God said, “Until Job gets up from the ash heap, He will continue to preach “Job on the ash heap.”” Until that condition becomes unfavourable for you, you will not stop.
51.       Until we march into Heaven, in this family, we must continue to uphold truth. We will not get tired. In season and out of season, we will remain on it until we proclaim it into Paradise.
52.       Our journey is incomplete until we enter Paradise with this Faith, with this Message and with this joy. I do not care about any other person.
53.       For that day will not be light and prosperity, but darkness and doom! How terrible the darkness will be for you – not a ray of joy or hope will shine.
54.       So, at a point like this, seeing the terror of God, we are persuading ourselves.
55.       Psalms 50:7 – 19 Living Bible. O my people, listen! For I am your God. Listen! Here are my charges against you. I have no complaints about the sacrifices you bring to my altar, for you bring them regularly.
56.       But it isn’t sacrificial bullocks and goats that I really want from you. 10-11For all the animals of field are mine! The cattle on a thousand hills! And all the birds upon the mountains!
57.       12If I were hungry, I would not mention it to you – for all the world is mine and everything in it. 13No, I do not need your sacrifices of flesh and blood.
58.       What I want from you is true thanks; I want your promises fulfilled. I want you to trust me in your times of trouble, so I can rescue you and you can give me glory.
59.       But God says to evil men: recite my laws no longer and stop claiming my promises, for you have refused my discipline disregarding my laws.
60.       Psalms 50:16 – 17. Amplified version. But to the wicked, God says: What right have you to recite My statutes or take My covenant or pledge on your lips,...
61.       You do not have the right. What rights have you?
62.       17Seeing that you hate instruction and correction and cast My words behind you [discarding them]?
63.       If you are guilty of it in this family, let us raise our hands. If you are guilty, let us raise our hands. At every point in time, how many of us set the Word of God aside? Who is angered by the Words of God? Most of us are guilty.
64.       When Daddy corrects you, you will frown your face. For every indictment, the person will be filled with anger.
65.       The person will then be dodging Me, and demonstrating. Yet, claiming and quoting the name of God, expecting salvation from God.
66.       Psalms 50:16 – 17. Amplified version. But God says to evil men: recite my laws no longer and stop claiming my promises, for you have refused my discipline disregarding my laws.
67.       You see a thief and help him,... Chika! You see a thief and help him.
68.       Such a person is now “All weather”. If he sees white, he will be white. If he sees black, he will turn black. He is no longer choosy about the group of people he mingles with.
69.       ...and spend your time with evil and immoral men. 19You curse and lie, and vile language streams from your mouths.
70.       Vile languages. Abominable and stinking words because you are staying with people with mean characters. Tell Me the people you mingle with, and I will tell you why your character will never change. Our characters are reflections of the people we surround ourselves with. Evil and immoral people with base character. Heathens! Unbelievers!

Fix your eyes on your target and your target is nothing else but making sure that you are clothed with eternal life, not renewing the past, bringing it back, No!  No! No! This is what is denying many of you the joy of your salvation. Not what you have done today but what you did before which is past with yesterday for the Almighty God can never change the past.

AS WE WAIT AT THE GATE
OF PARADISE


AS WE WAIT AT THE GATE OF PARADISE VOLUME 2 Page 13 verse 16. The greatest battle before you and me, before everybody is the battle against compromise with the heathens. Sure!
2.           God can overlook every other thing, but he can never over look your compromise with the heathens. For that reason, know your limitations [as a child of God]. Know the boundaries of your Faith. Sure!
3.           The Message is saying that we spend our time with evil and immoral people in our schools and colleges. Let us put our names there, both men and women; boys and girls.
4.           God said that your inspiration come from the people you communicate with. Your inspiration comes from who you communicate with. You are either communicating with God or an agent of the devil.
5.           God said that we are sons and daughters of God, and the rest of the world around us are under the power and control of Satan. [1 John 5:19] I do not care who that person is. The person can be your boyfriend or girlfriend or whatever the person is to you.
6.           The person can be your director. The person can be your father. The person can be your mother. The person can be anybody to you.
7.           And God said, “That person you are steadily communicating with, someone whose voice you cannot resist; you are in constant communication either on Facebook, WhatsApp or any such platform with the person; the person calls you every day, claiming to be a part of God, that person is trying to pry into the secret of your liberty in Christ.” That’s truth!
8.           The greatest battle before you and me, before everybody is the battle against compromise with the heathens.
9.           God can overlook every other thing, but he can never over look your compromise with the heathens. Impossible! For that reason, know your limitations. Yes! We have imitations. Know the boundaries of your Faith.
10.       AS WE WAIT AT THE GATE OF PARADISE VOLUME 2 Page 18 verse 31 – 33. Are you among those that are expecting the promises to come to pass on the last day? Always postponing whatever God is saying to the future?
11.       Be very careful, lest you postpone the day of your salvation. That is why, when you hear His Voice, harden not your heart as in the day of provocation.
12.       Are you a part of the people that will always say, “Tomorrow” or “Later”? Those that say, “I will do it, but later”. In the same way, your postponement will affect your salvation. You will keep on postponing the salvation God has given to you, which is today; a salvation which is today. He has told you when it will be.
13.       When I say today, I mean today. Today is the acceptable day of the LORD. Today is a day of salvation. By this, I mean, that which was wrong in your life yesterday can be corrected today. The flaws of yesterday can be removed today.
14.       It will take the MYSTERY OF THE BLOOD to take away the MISERY OF LIFE, for life is in the blood. Without the blood, there is no life. Atonement is in the blood. Amen.
15.       Page 21 verse 1. I want to, first of all, disabuse your minds of all the insinuations, falsettos, flaws, slurs, half-truths that bedevil you in all your Local Assemblies
16.       That is why God said we should now go home so that He can disabuse our minds of all insinuations, from all slurs and half-truths. We are now telling ourselves the truth.
17.       Now you go to your family, so as to know the number you have in your family. This is because you have no child except in Christ, no wife except in Christ, no husband except in Christ and no parents except in Christ.
18.       How do you know them? It is now we are back in the home. WHOEVER THAT IS ABIDING IN THE WORD IS ABIDING IN CHRIST. Whosever that is discarding the word is not in Christ.
19.       So with this, we can now know ourselves. GIVE YOURSELF A NAME
20.       AS WE WAIT AT THE GATE OF PARADISE VOLUME 2: Page 50 verse 29 through 31, 33, 37.
21.       Please, you will only be justified in establishing your own plans of salvation if God has not laid down His own established plan.
22.       But if God has laid down an already established plan, you have no choice to make. Whether it sinks well with you or not is immaterial.
23.       If it sinks well with you, it goes to show that you are one of the called according to His purpose. But if it does not sink well with you, it goes to show that you are a stranger that is trying to wear another look. It will not work. It will mean walking contrary to your nature.
24.       30If you are called of God, it is because you are a seed of God; you have the nature of God. In the beginning was the Word and you are a part of the Word. So, the Word cannot reject the Word. The Word will always confirm the Word.
25.       But where you are not a part of the Word, it will be difficult for you to say “Amen”, for you will always hold unto that your established idea about salvation. You will even claim to know more than every other person.
26.       31As a result, if it does not work the way you want [it, then you claim] it is not God. That means, you now have an absolute knowledge of God. For you to refuse what God is doing in your day, you must have arrogated to yourself absolute knowledge of God and all He will do in this life or even in the life to come.
27.       It then means you are now mightier than God. ... Yes! That person is mightier than God.
28.       33AS WE WAIT AT THE GATE, NOTE! WE ARE NOT WAITING AS FAMILIES. WE ARE NOT WAITING AS COMMUNITIES. WE ARE WAITING AS INDIVIDUALS.
29.       Let us take note of this. Inasmuch as we are gathered in this family, God is seeing us as individuals.
30.       Any soul that sinneth must surely die.
31.       37We have reached the point of no sympathy. We are at the Gate. And we are going to enter the security Gate one by one, where you will not know what is hindering the door from opening for Me. I am the only person that will know why.
32.       I know that thing which is hindering me. When the Word of God will be going forth, that thing will stand in front of me and also be staring at me.
33.       Your neighbour cannot see it. Your mother cannot see it. Your father cannot see it. You are the only person that knows about it. It will stand firmly before you and be staring at you.
34.       And there is nothing you can do to help Me come in. Whatever we can render to one another must be rendered while we are still at the Gate.
35.       38At a time when you least expected, My right hand will touch the key. Then you will see the brightness of the Door. And I will give way for you to start going in. Once it rejects you, no second chance. The roll call is done there. Do not ask Me whether the whole world will be there. ...
36.       39Do you have your ideas of how you can be saved? Keep it aside [now]. If you want to be saved [in this age, I say] throw it away. God does not want it. This is exactly where everybody will find problem in this Faith.













We are all called to serve the purpose of God, not our selfish purposes, and we have one that is a perfect example for us in all ramifications. He is the Author of life and faith.
OUR GOD IS THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGE. PREACHED ON 10TH DECEMBER,2017. Pg4 vs 5

GOD CAN NEVER DANCE
TO YOUR TUNE

The problem is not with this Faith. [The problem] is with the interpretation you are giving this Faith. Your own personal interpretation; the way you understand [this Faith to be is what will halt you at the Gate.]. Sure! Sure!!
2.           The problem is not with the Faith. It is with the interpretation you are giving this Faith. You own personal interpretation; the way you understand [this Faith to be is what will halt you at the Gate.] Sure!
3.           For those that have taken this Faith as a place for sight-seeing, God has sent us home so that we can be watching ourselves.
4.           Those that are in the Faith for competition in wearing clothes, every Sunday their interest is in launching new clothes, new weave-on, new shoes, new this and that, it has ended. We are now in our homes. Yes now! Sure!
5.           I am telling you what is happening in Enugu. You see where a Household is competing with their children. They will change their children’s clothes seven times before the Fellowship will be over. The person you are competing with is still your own child.
6.           Training them to come to showcase your children or to showcase your shoes. You will stand up from your seat and go out ten times before the Fellowship ends, so that everybody will see the new weave-on you are putting on or the new hairstyle you have done.
7.           Every Fellowship day, new dress.
8.           The same with Jerusalem. They come to Onitsha to showcase themselves. Any day the person makes a new dress, the person comes to Fellowship in Onitsha.
9.           God has said, “Over! Go to you homes! Go and showcase it to your families.” There are even those that have made the Fellowship a place for social visit. When they come to the Fellowship they will sit down aloof.
10.       Once they go out they apply powder. Once they leave the Fellowship hall, they must apply powder on their faces before coming back again into the Fellowship. Who are you doing it for?
11.       They see the fellowship as tourism and sight-seeing.
12.       Now God said that it is that your own personal interpretation of what this Faith is to you. You come to Fellowship for sight-seeing, as a place for competition, competition for all manner of things. God said these are the things that will halt you at the Gate.
13.       [THE SON OF MAN wrote in longhand inside His own copy of the Message, AS WE WAIT AT THE GATE OF PARADISE VOLUME 2]. That is My handwriting? I wrote it? IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEM WITH THE SON OF MAN, IT IS BECAUSE I AM NOT DANCING TO YOUR TUNE. Yes!!! IF I SHOULD DANCE TO YOUR TUNE, THERE WILL BE PROBLEM.
14.       That thing was written in My longhand? I wrote it there with a Biro pen.
15.       NEVERTHELESS, I AM DANCING TO THE TUNE OF CHRIST. Yes!!! I AM DANCING TO THE TUNE OF THE TRUTH, NOT TO YOUR OWN WAY OR YOUR OWN IDEA OR YOUR OWN WAY OF SEEING THINGS. Sure!!!
16.       This is why everybody is having problem. I mean, all the Ministers in this Faith. This is because they want the son of Man to dance to their tune. But God can never dance to your tune.
17.       They want to bend Him to their side.
18.       They want to bend Him to suit their evil convenience. I say you want to bend God to suit you evil convenience.
19.       That is why I have maintained the strictest measure. As an Apostle, I have remained strict from day one.
20.       This has been the same standard he is applying to everybody. Bro Okey said that that is why he knows that this Faith is from God. And that same thing He Daddy was from the first day he came into this Faith is the same thing He has maintained till today.
21.       Flogging My best friends more than others. We read it yesterday. We read it somewhere in the Quotes. Flogging My best friends more than others.
22.       TIME TO PAUSE AND THINK VOLUME 2; 2019 NEW YEAR MESSAGE; preached on Sunday 6th January 2019; Page 5 [Chapter 1] from verse 1.
23.       1I thank God for the journey so far. I am very, very grateful; ... It gives Me joy that God gave Me the enabling stamina within and without; All that I needed, He supplied, to hold the steering without permitting it to veer off the track.
24.       2Strictly maintaining the strictness of an Apostle from the beginning till now without compromise. Flogging My friends more than I flog My enemies because I am desiring that all of us will remain friends even till eternity. But what is more? After flogging them, I will pull My mask a little and then close it again.
25.       He will still bring you closer to show you that he is still the same God. He will hit you with one hand, and still bring you closer with the other hand. But He has maintained the strictness of an Apostle, and that is why this Faith is what it is till today.
26.       It is also contained in the Great Sermon and the holy ghost-inspired epistles of the son of man.
27.       Check all those that have tried Him. This Faith is what it is because of the way Daddy has been carrying it. Do you know the level of rebellion that have come to this Faith? But God has crushed all.
28.       But where are they today? Notable names and Ministers. Some of the rebellions came from the Elders and their families. But where are they today?
29.       IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEM WITH THE SON OF MAN, IT IS BECAUSE I AM NOT DANCING TO YOUR TUNE. IF I SHOULD DANCE TO YOUR TUNE, THERE WILL BE PROBLEM.
30.       NEVERTHELESS, I AM DANCING TO THE TUNE OF CHRIST. I AM DANCING TO THE TUNE OF THE TRUTH, NOT TO YOUR OWN WAY OR YOUR OWN IDEA OR YOUR OWN WAY OF SEEING THINGS. GOD CAN NEVER SEE THINGS THE WAY WE SEE IT for GOD WILL DESTROY ALL HUMAN PLANS FOR SALVATION.
31.       1 Corinthians 1:19 – 21 Amplified Version. 19For it is written, I will baffle and render useless and destroy the learning of the learned and the philosophy of the philosophers and the cleverness of the clever and the discernment of the discerning; I will frustrate and nullify [them] and bring [them] to nothing.
32.       Living Bible version.19For God says, “I will destroy all human plans for salvation no matter how wise they seem to be, and ignore the best ideas of men,...
33.       He can never dance to the tune of men. So, if you are expecting God to bend to your own convenience, it is not possible.
34.       For God says, “I will destroy all human plans for salvation no matter wise they seem to be, and ignore the best ideas of men, even the most brilliant of them.”
35.       That idea you will conceive in your heart and after checking it, you think it to be very suitable in your own eyes and very sweet to your ears and you then come to give it to THE SON OF MAN.
36.       Your heart will be booming with the delight of an expected approval from God. Your heart will be filled with joy as you are making your way to tell Him about your new idea, only for the sledge hammer of His disapproval to land devastatingly on both your head and your heart.
37.       You will then chill. Your whole body will go cold, contrary to your initially charged heart, filled with joy as you were coming to give Him your new idea. The Scripture said, “Even the most brilliant ideas must be destroyed by the Almighty.”
38.       Once He smashes your brilliant idea, your head will bend immediately, which was filled with the joy of the gains you will make from the idea. The person will feel like disappearing from the presence of THE SON OF MAN.
39.       The person will tell you that he or she is overwhelmed with fear.
40.       1 Corinthians 1:19 – 21. Living Bible. 19For God says, “I will destroy all human plans for salvation no matter wise they seem to be, and ignore the best ideas of men,...
41.       Ideas about life. Even ideas about your future, “Let me go and tell daddy this one. He will surely approve of it.”  He will rubbish the idea and set it aside. On the contrary, your heart had already convinced you that He will be happy. And you had already drawn a picture of how the whole thing will be.
42.       The only way you can walk WITH God is this: While coming to God, do not have anything in Mind. let the wiser counsel prevail. Whenever your heart is charged, do not do it, come to seek the will of God.
43.       And when you are going for life, prepare yourself also for death, for either can come.
44.       That is why He told us that while expecting the best, prepare your heart for the worst. You have conceived it in your heart, but do not forget that NO is an answer. He will ignore the best ideas of men.
45.       No matter how brilliant it is.
46.       1 Corinthians 1:19 – 21. Living Bible 19For God says, “I will destroy all human plans for salvation no matter wise they seem to be, and ignore the best ideas of men, even the most brilliant of them.”
47.       That is what is holding us. We Ministers. This is what is holding us, because we think and make our plans and also claim that we have committed it into the hands of God, but if God says NO, you will see that they never committed anything into the hands of God.
48.       This is because, if you have committed it into the hand of God, you will never get angry with the decision God will take on the matter. Am I saying the truth, Bro Elijoe?
49.       It must be discussed first. That is why they avoid discussing it with Me?
50.       It is because they want their own will to prevail. “God take the lead”, but you have taken your own decision first.
51.       20So what about these wise men, these scholars, these brilliant debaters of this world’s great affairs. You are inclined to argument trying to prove your point. God said, “What is your hope then?”
52.       God has made them all look foolish, and shown their wisdom to be useless nonsense.
53.       TB Joshua said that COVID-19 will stop on Friday [27 March, 2020]. The whole world is now talking about him. Everybody is saying “crucify him” including all the celebrities and all these “men of God”
54.       God has spoken and said that all these things are useless nonsense. The Prophet said that all these phonies must come first to upset the real thing when it shall come.
55.       21For God in His wisdom saw to it that the world would never find God through human brilliance, and then he stepped in and saved all those who believed His Message, which the world calls foolish and silly.
56.       He then stepped in and saved all those who believed His Message.
57.       Verse 21. Amplified version. 21For when the world with all its earthly wisdom failed to perceive and recognize and know God by means of its own philosophy, God in His wisdom was pleased through the foolishness of preaching [salvation, procured by Christ and to be had through Him], to save those who believed (who clung to and trusted in and relied on Him).
58.       Let us note these characters. This is because what we are treating is: WHAT IS GOD EXPECTING FROM US AT AN HOUR LIKE THIS?
59.       To cling to Him. To rely on Him. To lean our entire personality on Him.
60.       21For when the world with all its earthly wisdom failed to perceive and recognize and know God by means of its own philosophy, God in His wisdom was pleased through the foolishness of preaching [salvation, procured by Christ and to be had through Him], to save those[1] who believed ([2] who clung to and [3] trusted in and [4] relied on Him).

ALTHOUGH MANY PEOPLE TODAY CLAIM GOD AS THEIR FATHER, WE SHOULD BE SURE AND CERTAIN THAT NOT ALL BELONG TO GOD. THESE PEOPLE THAT CLAIM GOD TO BE THEIR FATHER ARE IN THE MAJORITY AND MAJORITY HAS NEVER PLEASED GOD AND CAN NEVER PLEASE GOD.

MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW
ARE CHOSEN
What is God expecting from us at an hour like this?
2.           AS WE WAIT AT THE GATE OF PARADISE VOLUME 2; Preached on Sunday 3rd April 2011; Page 64 verse 2 through 5. 2As we wait at the Gate, I will never call you Elect or non-Elect, chosen or non-chosen. You will place yourself where you belong depending on what is happening inside you, [and around you. That is what will prove whether you are an Elect or a non-Elect.].
3.           ... [and] depending on your own personal experience with God.
4.           This is because what will stop you or take you in is already in you.
5.           Where we read initially God said that you must be happy with what is happening in you, around you and in our midst. He is now saying the same thing again that where you belong depends on what is happening in you and around you.
6.           3Remember My Message titled GIVE YOURSELF A NAME. That you do not know what is happening does not apply to what is taking place in your heart... even as this Message is going on. Are we taking note of this? That you do not know what is happening or what is being preached does not mean that you do not know what is happening in your heart now as this Gospel is going forth.
7.           I do not know what is in Chu-chu’s heart, but He knows what is in his heart.
8.           Chikason! You are now in voicemail.
9.           “I do not know what is happening to me” does not apply to what you are harbouring in your heart.
10.       4There is no human being on earth who does not know what he [or she] is harbouring in his [or her] heart. There are two things you can never deny knowledge of: [1]What you have in your heart. [2]What you have done.
11.       Is there any human being who does not know his or her own?
12.       God is telling us that we can never deny these two things.
13.       There is wisdom in God. God is the Fountain of Truth. That is what they said. All that came to Him confirmed that, indeed, he is the Fountain of Truth. Irrevocable Truth! Our fathers never knew this truth. Odoziobodo does not know this Truth.
14.       You know how you came into this Faith. You know when you started having the understanding of this Faith. Yes!!! Assuming you came in when you were too tender, you were very young, you can tell the story about the day you started hooking up very well.
15.       Just like I told us that I prayed for my own personal experience.
16.       5When this Message started having meaning in your life, you know. You might be in this Faith for a long time but it just started having meaning in your life today.
17.       Brethren, is it a lie? Is it not the thing causing this trouble? We were looking at people’s height and age, not knowing that the person has never spent one second in Christ. Chika, true or false?
18.       Does Chika or Promise know what this Gospel is all about? But you are playing church and going to the pulpit. Does Chiemelie know what this Gospel is all about?
19.       He was only following her mother. After the production of pap, it is packaged for him to go and sell. Some have even taken the fellowship as a place where you come and eat. Hence you hear the language, “Be fast in Preparing the food. Bring it, for we will eat in the Fellowship”, “Go and bring our food bag”.
20.       There are some people who come to Fellowship with food to share to brethren. All the sisters will come with their own food and be competitively luring Brethren to come and eat of their own food. I am telling you what is happening.
21.       You need to come and see what is happening outside when Fellowship dismisses. Everywhere, you will hear, “Brother come and eat here.” What are we coming to do? Is it to share food? In short, what is happening in the Fellowship.
22.       Bro Elijoe! You missed this Sunday. You would have eaten from here and there. Eat from here. Eat from there.
23.       5When this Message started having meaning in your life, you know. When you came into this Faith [you and your family], from other denominations, initially, you could not understand, but you can state precisely the point where you started having some understanding.
24.       That is why God is fighting the ancient men till today. It is not being in the Faith from the inception of the world or from 1992 that counts.
25.       God does not take delight in a large congregation that does not believe the Word, but in a minority that pays strict attention to the Word of God. Is it not the Message? Is it not the Message?
26.       Many are called, but few are chosen. The smaller the size of the Fellowship, the more the impact of the Word. The Word had impact in us when we were small in number at Amazu Oil than when the hall was filled.
27.       And God told us, “A day is coming when the hall will be filled. We will be saying it is revival.” He said, “Do not rejoice! SON OF MAN! I warn you. Do not rejoice. They will be a thorn in your flesh. It is that time that your troubles will start.
28.       Then, “See the problem of a growing Church” will manifest. They will trouble you beyond measure, for your Fellowship will be cage of unclean birds.” Is it not the prophecy? We have it in the WILDERNESS VOICE.
29.       AS WE WAIT AT THE GATE OF PARADISE VOLUME 2; Page 69 verse 11 – 16. 11Now that we are at the Gate, the entire world never filled this Congregation. Many thought THE SON OF MAN lowered the standard, and for that reason, the world will be attracted to this Faith. And I told you never never, for Grace is by far stronger than the law.
30.       12The Message of law does not offend anybody. But the most offensive Message; the most unbearable Message is the Message of Christ, which is the Message of Faith, the Message of Grace.
31.       13How many have entered? Definitely nobody. We heard this Voice on Friday, “There are many that are just milling around the Ark, saying, ‘the Ark is filled’”, but God is saying that the Ark is still very much empty.
32.       Is it not enough to confirm to your hearts that God is behind this Faith? If I permit all the women in our midst to put on trousers now, the world will not wear your type of trousers.
33.       If you were told that time that you could wear wig, wear weave-on, use make-ups, do you think you would have believed? When you started wearing them, you thought many would come in, but did they? How many came in.
34.       14This Faith is a puzzle. It is not ordinary puzzle, but a jig-saw puzzle. No man can come to Me except My Father brings him to Me. That is why, if you go back to the Message of salvation, you will see [that] a prostitute like Mary Magdalene was saved. Why? Because she was a daughter of Abraham. That was the only thing that saved her.
35.       Is he a criminal? Yes, but he is a son of the King. He is untouchable. You do not touch him anyhow. He is the King’s son. A prince. Can you bring anything to the charge against him before his father?
36.       15For instance, no matter the atrocities Gbenga Obasanjo may have committed, Nuhu Ribadu [then EFCC Chairman] was there, while Obasanjo was the president of Nigeria. Did Ribadu arrest him [Gbenga Obasanjo]? You may not even appear there. Are you mad? You no dey fear?
37.       16The calamities of the end time will be cut short for the sake of those whom God had elected before the foundation of the world, that are still present here on earth. ....
38.       Amen!!! Calamities that will accompany the end will be cut short. For the sake of the Elect, God will make the days short.
39.       We can get it in Matthew 24:22. Amplified version.22And if those days had not been shortened, no human being would endure and survive, but for the sake of the elect (God's chosen ones) those days will be shortened.
40.       King James version.
41.       22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
42.       AS WE WAIT AT THE GATE OF PARADISE VOLUME 2; Page 71 verse 16. 16... You are the last Elect of God on earth. I am one of the last Elect. We are to wind up the history of salvation here in this age.
43.       17Some people initiated this move, [but you and I] are privileged to close it. Whatever has a beginning must have an end. If somebody started it, somebody must surely end it.
44.       Let me use the Scriptures, first of all to justify you. Let me give you assurance of your salvation.
45.       Ephesians 2:8 – 9 Amplified version. 8For it is by free grace (God's unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ's salvation) through [your] faith.
46.       And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving],... Did it come through our own striving? ...but it is the gift of God;
47.       9Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law's demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do,... Why don’t you put your hands together Brethren? God is not giving us this because of what we can possibly do....so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.]
48.       KNOWING YOUR STATUS IN CHRIST; Preached on 9th September 2010; Page 45 verse 59 through 60. 59From 2002, he placed you on waiting place to hold on. You think the promise is of non-effect. What is more? God went ahead of time to tell you that between the promise and the fulfillment, there is always a period of waiting.
49.       60I will not persuade you anymore. What? I will not persuade you anymore. Saint Paul in his day persuaded all men to believe in him. I [THE SON OF MAN] do not persuade you to believe so as to escape the wrath of God, for you are already living in the wrath of God.
50.       This Message was preached on 9th September, 2010. Saint Paul said, “Seeing the terror of God, we persuade all men” to believe [2 Corinthians 5:11 KJV], but God, THE SON OF MAN, is saying, “I am not begging anybody.”
51.       What will cause you to believe is already with you.
52.       For the judgment of God must finish with you [first] before it will extend to the world. For God’s judgment will start in His house, among those that say they believe Him. Amen.
53.       It will start where? His House. Did God say His Church? So, it is starting from this Family, from His own House. Now the Fellowship has gone back to the different families.
54.       The Message said that God’s judgment will start from all of us that are sitting down everyday, every morning, every night, hearing Him speak and seeing Him do things.
55.       God said, “And we claim that we believe. Yet the life of Christ is not yet seen in ourselves, in our hearts or in our lives.”







If your life does not reflect this faith, no matter how you make noise, preach, do everything; you must be given a place among the unbelievers.  You know the Personality that is talking to you.

GIVE YOURSELF A PLACE WHEN YOU ARE ALIVE. PREACHED ON FRIDAY, 27TH NOVEMBERS, 2015 pg 55:24.

This is the way out

KNOWING YOUR STATUS IN CHRIST; Preached on 9th September 2010; Page 39 verse 47 through 51. 51Note it. I am using these illustrations to confirm the Message. Your days are numbered. [I say] Your days are numbered. Whatever that has a beginning must have an end. I am the One that placed all of you in the waiting condition. I told you to wait: “This is where you will wait.” I have brought you where He said I should bring you and then ask you to wait for further instruction.
1.           48In addition, I warned you seriously to be very careful while you are waiting because it has always been during the period of waiting that the hearts of people stray away.
2.           It is during the period of waiting that many things will entice you. If it is God’s will that this will pass away, everybody will go back to their various ways of life, thinking that nothing has happened. The world will continue.
3.           I said, “If it is God’s will...” If God rolls away this coronavirus and everything begins again, the whole world will go back to their normal activities.
4.           That is what they are known for.
5.           If you go to the internet, they are all singing, “You’ve got the whole world in your hands.” That is what the whole celebrities are singing.
6.           One particular Prophet, Daddy Freeze said, “Who has the whole world in His hands? Is it the God that you do not worship? Is it the God that you do not obey? The God you give your tithes to? He [that god] is not the one that has the whole world. The real God, you are yet to find HIM. You are yet to see HIM. And you are yet to worship HIM.”
7.           This is the man Apostle Monday went to in Lagos and gave him our Messages. He is with our Messages.
8.           That is truth. He preaches our Messages now.
9.           He said that the world is yet to see HIM. Then he started quoting Scriptures.
10.       He said HE [God] is a human being.
11.       He said, “You go to your church and they give you the preaching you want to hear”, quoting and backing it up with Scriptures. He said that we should keep him connected and that our Faith is not popular and that he will help us gain popularity.
12.       The Apostle said, “No! We want you to believe. We do not want you to make this Message to be popular. Believe! Since you approve that there is a God apart from Jesus Christ that is hidden, Whom people do not know, believe it first before you start preaching it.”
13.       He said that the name of his church is “Free The Colt Movement.” He said that the whole world is tied to a stake. He said that the whole world, the whole Catholics and the whole world are all tied to a stake.
14.       That statement is confirming what God is saying that they go to church; they search the Scriptures, thinking that in them they have their salvation. [John 5:39]
15.       Carrying the Bible, quoting the Bible and going to hell. Missing God.
16.       At this moment in time, what should we do? 1 Corinthians 10:12, Amplified version. 12Therefore let anyone who thinks he stands [who feels sure that he has a steadfast mind and is standing firm],...
17.       He that thinks he has what? A steadfast mind. We that are thinking that we have arrived or that we have come to our destination point or that we are with THE SON OF MAN, and that He is the hope of our salvation; all these things are true, but God is saying, be very careful. Be very careful.
18.       12Therefore let anyone who thinks he stands [who feels sure... Can you hear that statement? WHO FEELS VERY SURE. When the Message is going forth, we will be saying, “We are more than that. I have passed that stage. This Message is not for Me. It is for other people. We have passed that stage. It is for other people. We are with THE SON OF MAN. We know the people the Message is talking about.”
19.       Look at the words of the Scriptures, “Those that feel very sure.” No matter what happens, I am going to heaven. Forget all these things that are being said. My faith is Okay.
20.       It is by Grace
21.       12Therefore let anyone who thinks he stands [who feels sure that he has a steadfast mind and is standing firm],... The person is thinking that he is standing firm.
22.       take heed lest he fall [into sin]. Make sure you take heed, lest you are standing firm in unbelief, or that you are standing firm in lies and in unbelief. The Scriptures say you must be very careful.
23.       I wrote this Scripture down on the night of Passover [31st December 2019 into 1st January 2020] That was the last Scripture that was read and God dismissed us.
24.       Colossians 3:2 – 14 Amplified version. 2And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.
25.       3For [as far as this world is concerned] you have died, and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God. Are we getting the Message? Chiemelie, are you getting the Message?
26.       4When Christ, Who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in [the splendor of His] glory. Sure!
27.       5So kill (deaden, deprive of power) the evil desire lurking in your members... That is, in our own hearts. In your life. In my life and in your own life. Evil desires. Let me get this and let me be that.
28.       5So kill (deaden, deprive of power) the evil desire lurking in your members... Deprive of powers. We are the ones giving our thoughts power. We are the ones giving our thoughts power. After thinking it in your heart, you then give your thoughts the power with which to act. But if you do not accept it, it will die in you.
29.       Inspiration is the power of the mind. What is inspiring you gives your mind the power, WHETHER IT BE GOD OR DEVIL.
30.       This is a quote. WHATEVER THAT IS INSPIRING YOU, GIVES YOUR MIND THE POWER, whether it be god or devil.
31.       5So kill (deaden, deprive of power) the evil desire lurking in your members [THOSE ANIMAL IMPULSES... That your nature which God cannot remove and it is still there in you.
32.       ...THOSE ANIMAL IMPULSES AND all that is earthly in you that is employed in sin]:... You employ it for a pay. Things like telling lies, foul-mouthedness, all of which you employ so that they will help you in the life you are living.
33.       ...sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and all greed and covetousness, for that is idolatry (the deifying of self and other created things instead of God).
34.       6It is on account of these [very sins] that the [holy] anger of God is ever coming upon the sons of disobedience (those who are obstinately opposed to the divine will),...
35.       The Holy Qur’an called it, “POWERFUL OBSTINATE TRANGRESSORS.” [Surah 11:59, Surah 14:15, Surah 40:35]
36.       7Among whom you also once walked, when you were living in and addicted to [such practices].
37.       8But now put away and rid yourselves [completely] of all these things: [1]anger, [2]rage, [3]bad feeling toward others, [4]curses and [5]slander, and [6]foulmouthed abuse and [7]shameful utterances from your lips!
38.       Brethren, can we see the way out? Can we see the way out of this impending judgment of God? THIS IS THE WAY OUT. THIS IS WHAT GOD WANTS US TO DO AT AN HOUR LIKE THIS. Sure!!!
39.       9Do not lie to one another, for you have stripped off the old (unregenerate) self with its evil practices,...
40.       Why do you go back to bring in those things of your past life which you had earlier dropped? You are saying that you are a brand new individual. Yet, all those things you were known for in the past, you now go and bring all of them back and fuse them into your life again.
41.       At an hour like this, what we should be telling ourselves is, AS WE SEE THE DAY APPROACHING, WE CONTINUE TO ENCOURAGE OURSELVES.
42.       There should not be any object of provocation that will lead to quarreling. At this point in time, we rally round together, making sure that we are tidying up things. If you see that which is wrong in any of your Brethren, you put the person right.
43.       That is the essence of creating all those groups. We have what we call “The Brothers of Truth” who are members of THE SON OF MAN’s family. What is the essence of all these things? To make sure that we are all united.
44.       I appreciate it. I confirm it. and it will stand. It is not a gossip group.
45.       10And have clothed yourselves with the new [spiritual self], which is [ever in the process of being] renewed... We are ever in the process of being renewed. Every day, you are striving to make sure. That is where God will now see that struggle. That is where God will see and then give you a HELPING HAND.
46.       ...and remolded into [fuller and more perfect knowledge upon] knowledge after the image (the likeness) of Him Who created it.
47.       11[In this new creation all distinctions vanish.] There is no room for and there can be neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, [nor difference between nations whether alien] barbarians or Scythians [ who are the most savage of all], nor slave or free man;
48.       but Christ is all and in all [everything and everywhere, to all men, without distinction of person]. That is why God gave us the Message, DIGNIFIED INCLUSION. Integrate yourself. God said, “PUT YOURSELF IN THAT “WHOSOEVER.””
49.       THE DIGNIFIED INCLUSION! It is not a slavery inclusion. it is not a beggarly inclusion.
50.       God said, “When you believe these teachings, you demand eternity and translation as your right from God.”
51.       He did not give us the position of a slave nor a servant. He gave us the spirit of sonship in the places of sons and daughters. [2 Corinthians 6:18]
52.       12Clothe yourselves therefore, as God's own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), [who are] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by] [1] tenderhearted pity and [2] mercy, [3] kind feeling, [4] a lowly opinion of yourselves,... And not a high opinion of yourself, “I am more than this. It is an insult to me.”[5] gentle ways, [and] [6] patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper].
53.       13Be gentle and forbearing with one another and, if one has a difference (a grievance or complaint) against another, readily pardoning each other; even as the Lord has [freely] forgiven you, so must you also [forgive].
54.       14And above all these [put on] love and enfold yourselves with the bond of perfectness [which binds everything together completely in ideal harmony]. Amen!!!
55.       On this note, I say remain blessed everybody.
56.       I believe we are blessed. You see the difference between this family and other. Is the difference not clear? Am I making sense?
57.       SONG: [1I love HIM. I love HIM because He first loved me and purchased my salvation on Calvary’s tree.
58.       2Such love, such love. That God should love a sinner such as I. How wonderful is love like this]
59.       Of a truth, God loves us. Whatever be the reason why God loves us, we do not know. The only thing that is clear to us is that God loves us.
60.       So, we are inviting our Evangelist, who is Chibuikem to give us water so that we can swallow the Word we have heard. If the food [the Word] is stuck anywhere in your throat, he will give you water with which to swallow it.
61.       So, we invite you to the pulpit, even if it is for one minute.
