apostle peter odoemena
Preached On Sunday 29th March, 2020 At The Bridal Lodge, Nsugbe, Anambra State, Nigeria By EVANGELIST CHIBUIKEM ODOEMENA MODERATED BY THE SON OF MAN Apostle Peter Odoemena THE MOST COMPASSIONATE BEING

THE WORD SAID, “WHEN YOU OBEY, YOU MUST RECEIVE THE REWARD; YOU DISOBEY, YOU RECEIVE THE REWARD.” IN THAT MESSAGE GOD WENT FURTHER TO SAY, “THIS IS NOT THE YEAR YOU WILL BEGIN TO PLEAD WITH YOUR BROTHER OR YOUR SISTER SAYING, “OBEY THE LORD,” FOR GOD MUST BE OBEYED AS INDIVIDUALS. YOU CAN NEVER OBEY GOD COLLECTIVELY; IT IS IMPOSSIBLE.

FROM THE MESSAGE UNTO YOU GOD FIRST APPEARED TO TAKE A PEOPLE UNTO HIMSELF. PREACHED 1ST JAN 2009. PG. 14 VS. 24-25

1
TO OBEY IS WISDOM
You are blessed Brethren. This is a rare and wonderful privilege we are enjoying in Christ. Sure!
2.          Many people longed to see one of the days of THE SON OF MAN, but we are here feeding from Him 24 hours of the day. What a wonderful privilege we are enjoying.
3.          IF YOU ARE A TRUE SEED OF GOD, YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY AT ALL TIMES BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE MILLIONS AROUND US ARE FACING. BUT WITH GOD, WE HAVE OUR HEART RELAXED. Whatever that is going up and down, we have that Faith that we have God in our midst.
4.          Before I continue, there is a hymn I have been singing in my heart since last week, and I want us to sing it.
5.          HYMN: Number69 on Page 88 of The Bridal Hymn Book: [I am safe, whatever may betide me; I am safe whoever may deride me. I am safe, for naught of ill can wound me; in the hollow of God’s hand.
6.          In the hollow, hollow of His hand; In the hollow, hollow of His hand; I am safe while God Himself doth hold me in the ho llow of His hand.]
7.          Alleluia! If you read through this last stanza, it says, “Everlasting arms of love enfold me. On a daily basis. Words of peace the Voice divine hast told me.
8.          From morning till now, we have been hearing that Word of peace, because the Messages we are receiving from God is to put peace in our heart, peace in our families and peace with God.
9.          Let me go straight to the Message I have. I will start from the Message, Random comments from the son of man. It was preached on Sunday 25th September, 2005 at the Household of God, Onitsha; Page 9 verse 4.
10.     We have to be serious with God, for the time of ignorance, God over looked. I was going through so many Messages recently, and at the end of My research, I concluded that God is a merciful God, for if He was to judge us from what He has handed over to us, no soul in the Bride Ministry will escape.
11.     Brethren, we believe this thing to be true. God has handed down to us, teachings upon teachings. There is no aspect of life on which we can say that God has not taught us.
12.     But if He is to judge us by those teachings, what are we going to say at the end? Do you see why we are in danger of being called to question at last?
13.     We are in danger. I am in danger of being called to question. You are in danger of being called to question.
14.     Random comments from the son of man; Page 10 : 6 – 7. 6...If you think you are worshipping the true God today, as long as you are not faithful, He will disappoint you. Sure!!!
15.     When you hear God say, “Call Me in the time of trouble, and I will deliver you”, that is, if you are faithful. But if you are not faithful and you call me in the time of trouble, I will laugh you to scorn. Sure!
16.     If you are not faithful, God will laugh you to scorn. He will laugh me to scorn. You will be disappointed.
17.     Have we seen where God is holding us captive? God is saying that we should be faithful to Him. If our faithfulness to God had been complete, by now, translation would have occurred.
18.     Long ago! But it is because of the mixed multitude. And now, God is separating, so that the mixed multitude will tell the world what has happened. Any day they come here and they do not see us, they see the building and they see the vehicles, nobody will tell them what has happened.
19.     ARE YOU FOLLOWING THE CLOUD OR THE CROWD PART 1; Preached on Sunday 7th August, 2016, at the Household of God Onitsha; Page 27 verse 3 – 4.
20.     Remember, following the Cloud takes place in the heart. Following the crowd also takes place in the heart. That is why God judges our hearts because we cling to Him with our hearts and not with our mouths. God does not judge our outward look, but our inward look.
21.     That is why God said that the thoughts of our hearts ring bell more than the words which we speak when we are in the presence of God.
22.     Sure! What will condemn us is in our hearts. What will justify us is also in our hearts, for with the heart, man believeth unto righteousness. With the mouth, confession is made unto salvation. [Romans 10:10]
23.     With the heart, we depart from God. Is it not true? Man can worship God with the lips, when the heart is far from God. These are the people that will be disappointed in the end.
24.     With the mouth, you can be in the Fellowship of the Saints, singing Alleluia with them, running around with them, when your heart does not believe what is being taught. Yes! True or false?
25.     These people will be disappointed in the end. They are make-believers. They are make-believers. They have the knowledge of God, knowledge of truth, but they lack wisdom. They lack wisdom, for they do not obey.
26.     TO OBEY THE WORD OF GOD IS WISDOM. TO KNOW THE TRUTH IS KNOWLEDGE. TO KNOW WHO GOD IS, IS KNOWLEDGE, BUT TO OBEY HIS WORD IS WISDOM.
27.     ARE YOU FOLLOWING THE CLOUD OR THE CROWD PART 1; Preached on Sunday 7th August, 2016, at the Household of God Onitsha; Page 27 verse 3 - 4
28.     3If you are wise and understanding, if you are intelligent, your prayer at all times should be that God should not allow the spirit that anointed those that went astray to anoint you, for no man is above evil anointing.
29.     4Pray that God should sustain you in this Pathway of Truth till the end. Brethren, have you seen what should be our prayer in times like this. GOD, UPHOLD US IN THIS PATHWAY OF TRUTH TILL THE END, WITHOUT DOUBTING, WITHOUT BACKSLIDING IN THE FAITH.
30.     And without backsliding in the hearts, because the Bible said, “Cursed is the backslidden in the heart.” Cursed is that man, that woman who backslides from the Faith in his or her hearts. If your heart withdraws back from following God, the Spirit of God will no longer be pleased with you.
31.     But we are not numbered among those that draw back unto perdition, but we are numbered among those that march forward to the saving of our souls.
32.     We will never stop our journey halfway. God will never allow us to stop our journeys halfway. “Nearly” can never kill a bird. “I missed it narrowly” means you have missed it. Chikason! Sit up!
33.     From morning till now, if you watch the line of Messages that have been going forth right from our Sunday School today, it has been One Voice.
34.     It is like you sat down and held a meeting and planned it together and how it will come. But I know it never happened. I know it never happened. Even if it happened, did you know you will be called? You never knew. Nobody!
35.     From morning till now, One Voice pointing us to one area. IN TIMES LIKE THIS, WHAT SHOULD OUR ATTITUDE LOOK LIKE? SHOULD WE DRAW NEAR TO GOD OR SHOULD WE DRAW BACK?
36.     Seeing the terror of God, we persuade all men to draw near unto God.
37.     We do not persuade anymore.
38.     For what will make us believe is already here with us.
39.     The fire has started bending crayfish. I was telling you last week that if you are not careful, a day is coming, sooner than you think, when interstate movements will stop. It may escalate to where some states will lock down everywhere. You stay in your house. No movement. Markets, closed. What you have is what you will eat.
40.     What about the person what does not have money, no food in the house and he does not go out for work? Do you not know that there are some people among us here who say they have the Faith of Christ, but can never take My Word seriously?
41.     We were at Owerri, and as a Visioner and a Prophet, I saw what was coming. Even when Mummy wanted to talk, I asked her, “Do you not trust Me? Do you not know Who I am again? Go to Fellowship. We are here for a reason. Fear not.”
42.     There was never a time I made any arrangement for three bags of Garri, rice and other things. I bought a big bag of Garri. I also bought a big bag of onions. Right now, that big bag cannot be purchased for ₦30,000.00. Is it not a cluster of five bulbs of onions that was sold for ₦1,000 yesterday? It is even nowhere to be found. Carrot is equally scarce. Nothing, nothing.
43.     All the food items that use to come down from the North had all ceased because there is no more interstate movements.
44.     By Monday or Tuesday, the place where we use to buy yam will be closed. Our source of food in Benue has been closed. We were getting food from Benue, but that one is closed. We were getting from Delta State, but that one is also closed. The ones we were getting from River State, closed. Ebonyi State, closed. We have rolled into an economic blockade.
45.     Ask yourself, “Who is blocking us?” We are not fighting any civil war. We are now locked down in our houses. No buying. No selling.
46.     When the banks will be closed, that is when you will understand what we are talking about. We will then know the people that will still be eating.
47.     I said that if God will flourish you in this time of scarcity, won’t you know that God is with you? Am I making sense?

IN OTHER WORDS, BLAME YOURSELF AND NOT GOD. GOD IS ALL OUT TO BLESS HIS PEOPLE WE HAVE HEARD TIMES WITHOUT NUMBER THAT HE IS READY TO BLESS US.  HE HAS PURPOSED TO BLESS US BUT WE ARE WORKING IN UNBELIEF. WE HAVE NOT FULLY SURRENDERED TO HIS LEADERSHIP. WE HAVE NOT FULLY SURRENDERED TO HIS RULER-SHIP. WE HAVE NOT SUBJECTED OURSELVES TO HIS AUTHORITY. IT IS EASY TO SAY, “GOD HAVE CONTROL OVER ME BUT REALISTICALLY SPEAKING, DOES GOD HAVE CONTROL OVER YOU? HAVE YOU EVER FOR ONE DAY ALLOWED GOD TO HAVE CONTROL OVER YOU? OR TO HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR BOSSINESS, HAVE YOU EVER FOR ONE DAY ALLOWED THAT TO HAPPEN?

YOU ARE GUILTY

ARE YOU FOLLOWING THE CLOUD OR THE CROWD PART 1; Page 30 verse 12. 12Acknowledgment of your error makes you great. It makes you courageous. Resist cknowledging your error and you will die in your error.
2.           For there is no way you can be corrected when you have not accepted that you are wrong. Yes sir!
3.           We are wrong and God is right. What we have been hearing from morning till this hour are corrections and corrections from God because whosoever the LORD loves, He corrects, that he might be zealous and repent.
4.           But if you refuse to repent when God is correcting you, when he offers you salvation, no more!
5.           13IF GOD FINDS YOU GUILTY, YOU ARE GUILTY UNTIL GOD SETS YOU FREE.
6.           THAT IS WHY IF YOU ARE A SEED OF GOD, AT ALL TIMES, YOU MUST FIND OUT WHERE GOD IS HOLDING YOU GUILTY.
7.           If you are a seed of God, you must find out where God is holding you and me guilty. From the inception of this Message till now, everybody will bear eloquent witness to the truth that we have seen ourselves in the picture.
8.           IF YOU ARE A SEED OF GOD, AT ALL TIMES, YOU MUST FIND OUT WHERE GOD IS HOLDING YOU GUILTY.
9.           You must find out that thing that is causing the problem between you and God.
10.       UNTIL YOU DISCOVER IT, THE REMEDY WILL NOT COME. Until you discover where God is holding you guilty, the remedy will not come.
11.       AND THAT PLACE WHERE GOD IS HOLDING YOU GUILTY THAT IS WHERE THE DEVIL IS JUSTIFYING YOU. When you are receiving the devil’s justification, telling you to go ahead, “Do not mind God”, that is where God is holding you guilty.
12.       ANYWHERE GOD IS HOLDING A MAN GUILTY IS THE PRIDE OF THAT MAN, FOR THE DEVIL IS HOLDING THAT PERSON TIGHT THERE. A STRONGHOLD OF THE DEVIL IN YOUR LIFE, WHERE YOU ARE REJOICING WITH THE DEVIL, THAT IS WHERE GOD IS HOLDING YOU GUILTY.
13.       IF YOU KNOW THAT WHICH YOU ARE DOING, JUBILATING AND JUMPING UP AND DOWN, IN OBEDIENCE TO THE DEVIL, PRIDING AND PUFFING YOURSELF UP, THAT THING IS GIVING THE DEVIL JOY BECAUSE HE HAS GOTTEN HOLD OF YOU, THIS IS EXACTLY WHERE GOD IS ANGRY WITH YOU THAT YOU ARE GRATIFYING THE DEVIL IN IGNORANCE AND IN STUPIDITY, DANCING TO THE DEVIL’S TUNE, TO THE NEGLECT OF GOD’S WAYS AND GOD’S INJUNCTIONS, BECAUSE SIN IS ALWAYS PLEASURE TO ONE THAT DOES NOT HAVE THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST.
14.       IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, FOR CHRIST IS THE TRUTH, THE WAY AND THE LIFE.
15.       13IF GOD FINDS YOU GUILTY, YOU ARE GUILTY UNTIL GOD SETS YOU FREE. THAT IS WHY IF YOU ARE A SEED OF GOD, AT ALL TIMES, YOU MUST FIND OUT WHERE GOD IS HOLDING YOU GUILTY. UNTIL YOU DISCOVER IT, THE REMEDY WILL NOT COME. Amen!
16.       It can be in your daily life. It can be emanating from your heart. Your name will be mentioned everywhere for the wrong reasons. People will be wondering to know what you have done. But only God knows what is happening deep down inside there.
17.       From 2015, when Ugochukwu was still here, and when God called him a criminal, I had not seen any form of criminality emanating from him with my two eyes.
18.       You were in the same room with him as at that time.
19.       But look at how God brought His Word to pass. We then saw where God was holding him guilty.
20.       And he knew. His parents also knew. It is just like this one here. He knows his fault, He knows and his parent equally knows. Promise knows his own. His mother knows, and his siblings equally know.
21.       That is why his brother told him, “If you continue with this your stupidity and transfer the life you were living in Aba into the House of THE SON OF MAN, any day you are sent packing, this house will not accommodate us.”
22.       I called the mother concerning beating others and she was pleading with Me telling me that beating is what he was known for in Aba. I called Chinemezu and he equally pleaded with Me, “Daddy, please. If you send him back, he will commit suicide, for Aba Brethren are even surprised that he had stayed up till this moment, for they thought that he would have been sent packing a long time ago.”
23.       I then asked, “Which means, all of you know about his character?” And he said yes, that they all know.
24.       Can we talk about Chika? Do we talk about Elijoe? The Brethren at Enugu threw a party when they heard that he had left, as if an idol had been taken away to THE SON OF MAN, and that idol had come down to Onitsha.
25.       Everybody knows his or her own. I am only doing a reformatory work, for I discourage throwing away any human being. Bring the vilest offender to Me. If the Almighty God does not make such a fellow a human being, who then will do that?
26.       Any individual whose life cannot be transformed by the Almighty God, who else will transform that individual’s life? That is why, it is from here to hell or from here to Heaven.
27.       Are you expecting that now that Bro Ben Mbah is dead that Sister will be the one to train Ugo up to become a reasonable human being?
28.       Do you know how many times report came that the Vigilante group came to arrest him? After flogging and chastising him heavily, no way. How many times has he stolen handsets?
29.       How many times has he been reported to the father, where people were even testifying against him? Two times! He went to Post Office and he was also caught there, and was given a beating of his life. His whole body is covered with scars.
30.       When his father could not reposition him even with flogging, is it his mother that can do it? The situation is the same with his elder brother.
31.       His father gave him the ATM pin which was given to his elder brother, in case he dies. He said the PIN is a four-digit number. But that he does not know where he kept it. He lost it.
32.       That is what we are talking about. That is the situation. Since the person that is even feared is no longer there, can their mother achieve it?
33.       Then you come to the Sanctuary of the Most High God and before God face to face and stretch your hands against God. Nobody beats God and remains the same. You either come to God, believe Him, believe His Word and get changed or come, hear Him, refuse Him and become the worst.
34.       This is because when you have the knowledge of the truth and refuse to apply it in your life, your character will be worse than it was before you came into contact with God. Is it not Scripture? Go and see it in Hebrews chapter 10 from verse 26 – 27. What awaits such a one? A fearful indignation.
35.       Hebrew 10:26 – 27. New International Version.26If we deliberately keep on sinning, after we have received the knowledge of the truth,…If we deliberately keep on living our usual life,
36.       26If we deliberately keep on sinning, after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sin is left,...
37.       There is no offering; there is no prayer, and there is no sacrifice that will atone for our sins.
38.       27but only a fearful expectation of judgment... Have you seen what is facing you? ...and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.
39.       Thank you! This is because you have decided to make yourself God’s perpetual enemy. If you deliberately make yourself God’s perpetual enemy.
40.       If anyone sins deliberately by rejecting the savior after knowing the truth of forgiveness, this sin is not covered by Christ’s death; there is no way to get rid of it.
41.       There will be nothing to look forward to but the terrible punishment of God’s awful anger, which will consume all his enemies. LB
42.       Good! This is because you are now an enemy of God. WHAT GOD HAS BEEN SHOWING US IS THE WAY OUT OF THE JUDGMENT AT A TIME LIKE THIS.
43.       Amplified Version. For if we go on deliberately and willingly sinning after once acquiring the knowledge of the truth,...
44.       Brethren, have we not acquired the knowledge of the truth? Not ordinary truth. Truth that changes our lives, that helps us to re-modify our direction and remodel our lives. Am I making sense?
45.       After hearing all these things, when we dismiss from here, the person will deliberately go back to his former ways, will Christ’s blood save such a fellow? God said that there is no prayer or sacrifice that can be offered. Nothing, nothing! See what is facing you.
46.       ...there is no longer any sacrifice left to atone for our sins... No more! ...[no further offering to which to look forward]. No more!
47.       There is nothing left for us then but a kind of awful and fearful prospect and expectation of divine judgment and THE FURY OF BURNING WRATH AND INDIGNATION WHICH WILL CONSUME THOSE WHO PUT THEMSELVES IN OPPOSITION TO GOD. AMP
48.       Have you heard it? It will consume those that are opposed to the truth, for God is the truth. Anybody disobeying God is putting himself in opposition to God. True or false? Is it a lie? Good!
49.       So, if we think that willful disobedience to God’s Word is the right thing, the devil is fooling you. The devil is making sin to look very light in your eyes.
50.       How do you oppose the Word of God? By refusing to take heed to the Word which has been spoken unto you and unto me. Have we seen here that God said that, “If you are a seed of God, at all times, you must find out where God is holding you guilty.”
51.       Refuse to find out where God is holding you guilty and you will partake of the judgment of God. No remedy! Simple and short. No remedy.
52.       That is why at every moment, we strive to know the mind of God concerning us. If your relationship with God is strained, do what? As I thought on the evil direction I was heading to, God said what? I ran back to God.
53.       If possible, somersault to the right lane. I will do somersaulting, provided my corpse will fall into the right lane rather than fall into hellfire. In life or in death, let me live in the truth. Let it be on the right path. Let it not be in error.
54.       Somersault back to God.
55.       If we die in the right path in Christ, there is great gain. We have that hope that we will resurrect to eternal life.
56.       So, we have seen and we have known how God is now meeting us individually and collectively.
  
EVERY TRUE SEED OF GOD MUST BE LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS NOTHING BUT THE WORD OF GOD WHICH YOU ARE HEARING, AND THAT IS THE SPIRIT, THAT IS THE LIFE. WHEN YOU ARE NOT ALLOWING GOD TO LEAD YOU, LET IT BE KNOWN TO YOU THAT YOUR OWN HUMAN SENSE IS CONTROLLING YOU. AND THERE IS NOBODY WHO PERMITS HIS HUMAN REASONING, HUMAN SENSE TO CONTROL WITHOUT MAKING GRIEVANCE MISTAKE WHICH HE WILL REGRET AFTER. FOR MAN IS SUBJECT TO ERRORS.

WHICH SPIRIT DICTATES
YOUR ACTIONS?
 

A
RE YOU FOLLOWING THE CLOUD OR THE CROWD PART 1; Page 75 verse 48.48Are you following the Cloud or the crowd? A question! Assess yourself. Evaluate yourself, for whatsoever and whosoever that dICtAtEs your action is the person you are following.
2.           God said that whatsoever and whosoever that dictates your action is the person you are following.
3.           Whatsoever, whether it is money, education, pride of life, fashion that fades away, spirit of competition, covetousness, whatever it might be. Whatever! Is it your husband, your wife, your children, or your work that is dictating your actions.
4.           It must be God dictating your action if you are a true seed of God.
5.           48...Evaluate yourself, for whatsoever and whosoever that dictates your action is the person you are following. It must be the Cloud dictating our actions as children of God.
6.           Look at where hands were raised for the Cloud. You must raise your hand, surrendering to the leadership of the cloud. Let him lead Me.


7.           Song: [Where he leads me, I will follow. Where he leads me, I will follow. Where he leads me, I will follow. I will be with, with him all the way.]
8.           Any spirit that dictates anything you are doing is the spirit you are following, be it Christ or the devil. Sure!
9.           Any spirit that dictates whatever I am doing, that dictates whatever I think in my heart, that is the spirit I am yielding myself to. Sure!
10.       I can still remember a quote Mummy used to tell us when we were coming up, that whenever the devil tries to bring up a thought in us that we should shout with our mouth “GET OUT!” I still do it till today. I do not lie. I still do it till today.
11.       There are some thoughts that will arise in me, I will shout, “Get out!I do not need you! Nobody will know. I can shout it in my mind, “Get out!”
12.       I do not need it. You do not need it, for it will stain your relationship with God and you are putting yourself in danger of being called to question before God.
13.       This is because the moment you admit that spirit, it will start working in you.
14.       God will ask you, “You that call yourself a child of God, children of God, why did you allow this and this to come inside you?” What will you answer?
15.       49Nobody has ever followed the spirit of Christ and rolled into error. Impossible! Stay where Christ is, for He is your Justifier. He is your Saviour. He is your redeemer. He is your all and all. The question arises again. ARE YOU FOLLOWING THE CLOUD OR THE CROWD?
16.       Remember, following the Cloud takes place in the heart. Following the same crowd takes place in the heart.
17.       50The Cloud has been revealed to make a separation. Brethren, look at the cloud. It has been revealed to make a what? A Separation.
18.       There must be a clear separation between the Cloud and the crowd. Sure!
19.       So you cannot tell me [that] you do not understand what the Son of Man is saying unless God has hardened your heart with the spirit of delusion so that you will not believe the truth [again].
20.       You cannot say that you do not know why God is talking to you. You cannot say you do not know where God is holding you guilty. If you say so, that means you have been set aside for destruction. Pure Truth!
21.       I can say that we have the most lenient and patient God in our midst. Amen! We have the most patient God in our midst. Look at God giving man hundred and twenty years to make amends. Which God can give you such years? Not days, but years to make what? Amends.
22.       Random comments from the Son of Man; Preached 25th September, 2005. Page 12 from verse 12 through 16. 12No true seed of God tries God’s patience. Brethren, have we heard it?
23.       The person tries God’s patience by continuously sinning deliberately and without restraint, until God will run out of patience with the person. He that sins continually is trying God’s patience.
24.       No true seed of God tries God’s patience by continuously sinning deliberately.
25.       You might say, “This person did it. And that person committed the same thing.” But in your case it might be different. In your case and in my case, it might be different.
26.       That was why I warned Mummy seriously, “Let there never be a time I will correct you or indict you or rebuke you of anything, and you cite example to Me using your fellow woman out there, “Don’t I see this person? She is putting on this. Can’t you see that person?” If you ever try it, you and I will never live under this roof again.”
27.       Did I tell you that I did not see the example you were pointing me to? Do I go out and query another man’s wife about her ways? Is it not My wife that I will query about her ways? Am I making sense?
28.       I will correct one that belongs to Me. Does the other person concern Me? How can I be a busybody in another man’s matters [1 Peter 4:15 KJV]
29.       When My mother in-law was alive, she said that she is only unbridled to eat her own food, but that she does not have such a tendency towards another person’s food. Do you understand what she means?
30.       I am jealous over My own. I cannot be jealous over another. I am jealous over My children. I am jealous over My family, My home. Can I be jealous over another man’s home? Never! It is not done.
31.       I want the best for My own. I do not know about that person there, for My delight might be the person’s poison. Is it a lie Brethren? My poison may be his delight.
32.       That which I do not want to see with My eyes, which I cannot withstand may turn out to be his delight and the delight of his children. Is it a lie Brethren?
33.       This is because anybody that does not have the Spirit of Christ can never have a good judgment. Am I making sense?
34.       He can never judge between what is good and what is bad because the spirit of truth is not there. Anything is okay. Before a sinner, everything is right. Is it a lie Brethren? But before God, is everything right?  
35.       No true seed of God tries God’s patience. At all! If you are trying God’s patience and setting another person as example, ask yourself, do you know whether God has earmarked this person for destruction waiting for the day he is going to destroy the individual.
36.       You do not even know whether the person is a rejected person.
37.       We have to be very careful for we are living in a dangerous Ministry. This Ministry is a very big ocean. People get drowned. Yet, they know not. And yet, it will seem as if nothing is happening. But we are still moving on and moving on.
38.       Wait! Do you know that there are people who have dismissed from Fellowship for over three hours now? They ran short of food. They do not have anything that is sustaining them.
39.       As for Message, they have read and everybody had forgotten what was read and they have all gone their different ways. They have even finished eating the food and have also taken their bath, and entered their car to the venue of a party and places of sight-seeing. I am telling you, right now.
40.       Some have even gotten to Roban Stores® or Shoprite® or their nearest sinning centre. You know there are sin centres. Sin centres! The nearest sin centre.
41.       It may be the place they go to buy Suya [peppered beef barbecue]. It may be the place they have gone to purchase milk and drinks or children’s toys. Any day they do not go there, it will seem as if the world has come to an end.
42.       The children have all loaded themselves in the car in readiness for the outing. Sin Centre. Anybody who does not know where the devil is lying in wait for him or her, such a fellow is a goat. Am I making sense? Does a thorn pierce the leg of one who has not gone into the forest?
43.       No true seed of God tries God’s patience. If God is patient with you, do not see it as a weakness. If God is patient with you, do not see it a sa weakness.
44.       Or that God is scared of you. Or that you are indispensable. You are too important. AM I making sense? Just like I was telling Promise at the back of the house.
45.       I told him that I called all of you and asked you to go. I told Elijoe to go. I called Promise and Chika and told them to go, but you all refused to go. Now, you are all trapped. There is no way for you to go back to your houses.
46.       All interactions with your families are based on phone calls. When I told you to go, things were still normal. There was no talk about coronavirus. Go home, for all the schools have been closed.
47.       Go, there is no need for you again, for all my children have come back to Me. and you refused to go. The gate has been closed against all of you. You and I will remain here.
48.       Then, if you get Me angry and I send you packing now, you must trek back to your house. Bro Elijoe will carry a Ghana-Must-Go bag on his head and take the Road to Nkwelle. If it will take you four days, you will trek the whole distance for you to get to Enugu.
49.       Chika will also embark on his own journey. His own is even close here. That of Promise is Aba. There is no public transport that goes there anymore. Enugu has closed its borders. Imo has done the same. So, you must trek home.
50.       WHAT ARE WE SAYING? GOD HAD SAID IT LONG AGO THAT THE BRIDGE HAD BEEN BROKEN. YOU EITHER CONQUER AND OCCUPY OR LOSE THE BATTLE AND PERISH. THAT IS WHERE WE ARE NOW.
51.       CONQUER THE DEVIL, CONQUER SIN AND ABIDE WITH GOD. OR ALLOW THE DEVIL TO CONQUER YOU AND LEAVE THE PRESENCE OF GOD. FORFEIT THE PROTECTION OF GOD. PERIOD. FOR GOD WILL ONLY PROTECT THOSE THAT ARE FOUND IN HIM.
52.       Why are God’s eyes so red on us now? Have you asked yourself why God is so hot on us now? It is because the battle is about to be decided.
53.       Yes sir!!!
54.       That is why God is very, very hot with us right now. Very harsh. This is because the devil is also fighting tooth and nail, morning and night to make sure that nobody will enter paradise.
55.       You may be sitting down in your seat and evil thought will spring up in you. Don’t you think it is the devil, just to take you away from God?
56.       THE BATTLE IS ABOUT TO BE DECIDED.
57.       That is why God is very, very patient with us because He knows that if He will judge us at that moment when the devil is laying hands on us, by and by, we will not be saved. But God is patient with us.
58.       This was the same thing I was discussing with Pastor Chizoba behind the house yesterday. I then gave him an instance using the hunting of rabbit by digging through its burrows in the ground, if he really knows what rabbit is.
59.       You may not understand what we are saying. When you are digging through the burrows of rabbits, there is a point you will get to and you will realize that rabbits are sensible creatures.
60.       The rabbit will lock the door using palm kernel and stones and everything to fortify that entrance, making it very smooth. When you get there, it will be like a rock, and it is very difficult to open it.
61.       You may even think that you have come to end of the burrow, but little will you realize that the rabbit is still there. But as soon as you see debris of food that had been eaten by the rabbit, you will know that the rabbit is still there inside the burrow.
62.       The next thing you should do is to find out all the emergency exits the rabbit had made for such eventuality, and then block all tightly so that the rabbit does not escape from such exit point[s], for the rabbit is still inside.
63.       This is because the rabbit leaves its burrow from the main entrance. And when the rabbit comes back, it blocks and fortifies that entrance. Is it a lie Brethren?
64.       That is why it is said that the person that killed a rabbit with a trap does not know what another person suffered, who dug through the burrows to kill the same rabbit, for the rabbit will thoroughly fortify the hole with stones and palm kernel which you will be removing as you dig through.
65.       When you continue digging, the barricade of stones and kernels will suddenly cave in and you will see that there are fresh palm fruits and cassava in there. The next thing you will do is to go and block all its emergency exit points.
66.       You then get a small clay pot that had been stuffed with smoking dry palm fibre impregnated with pepper and other things. The smoke from the pot is blown through a hole. The pot is then placed and held tightly over the entrance of the burrow because the rabbit can hit the pot with a great force when discomforted by the pepper.
67.       As you keep on blowing, the rabbit will ram onto the pot with a great speed and push the pot vigorously. You will hold the pot tightly and keep on blowing the smoke into the burrow.
68.       You will keep on blowing the smoke unto the struggle quietens. At that time, the rabbit is dead. Sometimes there might be two rabbits in the same burrow. You will see their two heads and then pull them out of the burrow.
69.       But if in the course of blowing the smoke pot, you see smoke coming from a hole somewhere, someone will rush there and block that hole tightly. Otherwise, the rabbit must escape from that exit. Rabbits normally have two emergency exit points.
70.       When the rabbit wants to go out in search of food, it opens that barricade and then goes out. The rabbit opens it all by itself and leaves from there. When it comes back, it gathers the materials mixing them with its urine and everything to build that concrete-like wall.
71.       It makes the barricade very smooth with its tongue and when you get there, you may think that the burrow has come to its end, not knowing that the rabbit is still in there. Do you understand what we are saying?

WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING
 IN YOU?

Where we are is very slippery, if you understand what I mean. Once we are able to cross where we are now, burning off of the last figment of evil habit, and evil spirit in us, for that is what the Almighty God is removing now through squeeze.
2.           Nobody is desiring anything flesh again. Nobody is gratifying the flesh. Carnality has been reduced to the barest minimum. No more pride. No more movements. Nothing, nothing.
3.           We are now restricted to one place. The prayer we are making now is, “Father, how long? How long? Hasten action.” Nobody is passing sleepless night because of school. No assignments. No tests. No practicals.
4.           Both the lecturers and everybody is now at home. Do you not see that strike action is useless? Strike action is useless. This is because the real strike has manifested.
5.           It would have been better for them to remain calm so that they will be paid salaries than to put themselves where they can never be paid.
6.           The hand of God is behind it. Yes! Why is God harsh and very hot on us? This is so that if there be any of His or children who has left the place where He kept us, that the person should come back.
7.           Do you think God will be happy losing people at the end? No! If God loses us at the end, the devil will be happy. And God will never allow the devil to come there and laugh at him and tell Him, “Are these not the people you call the righteous people?”
8.           That is why God is very harsh and hot on us, so that at the end, we will see why He has been doing this work in all of us.
9.           I agree with you.
10.       12...If God is patient with you, do not see it as weakness. If you see it as weakness, you are on your way to destruction. If you see God’s patience as weakness on His part, you are on your way to eternal destruction.
11.       Let us see why God is patient with us, for there must be a reason why God is patient with all of us.
12.       ...That God is patient with you is because He wants you to change your mind and attitude.
13.       God wants us to change our mind and attitude. Your mind means your heart, and not your brain. From your heart, information goes to your brain. Then, your mouth utters it out. And that will be your manifestation.
14.       Your character. As a man thinks in his heart, so it reflects in his character.
15.       That is why God is patient with us, giving human beings 120 years. Giving us years to live and every day we see ourselves alive, it is to change our mind and attitude.
16.       There is a quote that went out today, and it says, “What separates us from Almighty God emanates from our heart. What endears us to God also comes from our heart.”
17.       Have we seen that worshipping of God takes place in the heart? If your heart is far away from God, by and by, you can never worship God.
18.       There is no way you can worship God, for there is no type of cunningness or deceit that you will put together, that will make us to know that you are worshipping God. It is clearly written.
19.       Two things reveal the contents of our hearts, according to THE GREAT SERMON. The words of our mouth and our action reveal what we have in our hearts. That is why the face is the window of the mind. True or false?
20.       The face is the window of the mind while the word of the mouth and the action reveals the contents of the heart.  The face reveals the content of the mind. And inspiration gives the mind power.
21.       13I went through some messages titled, Lo I am with you always, there are so many things that trilled my heart. I do not need to rehearse them in this message. I believe that the words that came from the mouth of God, they are always alive and always active,...
22.       Just as it is active this morning and this afternoon. If you are not a true seed of God, you will not feel the impact of what is happening here today. Sure!!!
23.       This is another Sunday altogether. Since I was born, since 9th January, 2000, I have never had a Sunday Fellowship at home like this. I have never. No sleep, no hunger, no thirst for anything. No movement!
24.       Nobody feels that he or she is tired or anything, with the Word of God arresting spirits in our heart. Why? God said that it is at home that we manifest that Word which he gives to us.
25.       Let Him speak to us directly from our homes so that He can see whether some can be drawn back to Him. Let us see whether some can come back to God.
26.       When you go to fellowship, you will hear what the congregation wants to hear, and not what your soul needs at that moment. Yes sir!!! Sure!
27.       There is a longing for the soul. That was why when I was at Umudike and Apostle Chukwudi said he was going home on Saturday, I told him that I will come back Monday or Tuesday.
28.       But later, I said no, that this Sunday [22nd March, 2020] might be the last Sunday Fellowship in Onitsha. As we were seeing what was happening, I changed my mind and told him that I will travel with him that same day.
29.       This was a decision I made on a Friday. No preparation. I told him, “I am traveling with you.” And God helped me, making sure that I came back before Sunday.
30.       This is because if I had remained there, I would not have known the present stage of the Ministry, for I would have been hearing it, but talk of seeing with my eyes and hearing with my ears, no way. It pays to worship God where the action is.
31.       Chu-chu called Me and told Me that he will be going to Enugu, but I refused and instructed him to help bring back your bag.
32.       13...I believe that the words that came out from the mouth of God, they are always alive and active.
33.       14God told us that the things that happen in us are something that will take us away from this faith. It is not what you have done but what is happening within.
34.       Look at the Message that was preached in 2005. How many years now? Fifteen years ago. God said that it is not what you have done, but what is happening within.
35.       Hidden Agenda!
36.       ...What is happening within you is what will take you out of this faith. It is not what you have done that will take you out of this faith but what is happening in you.
37.       15Have you ever paused a little to ask yourself this question, “What is really happening in me?
38.       Who does not know what is happening in him?
39.       There is nobody that can claim that he does not know what he is thinking in his heart. You know what is happening in you. I know what is happening in me.
40.       If the Word of God which you have heard today and which you are still hearing is what is making your heart to turn around and also somersault back to the right way, you know.
41.       But if you are repelling the Word of God, you also know. And you are giving the devil glory. The devil will be happy, “Yes, I have gotten this person. God has no hand in you.” You are calling for the punishment of God upon yourself.
42.       15...What is really happening in me? This thing that is really happening in me, is it against me or for me?”
43.       As a child of God, you ask yourself this question, “This thing that is happening in me, is it God’s mind towards me or the devil’s mind towards me?”
44.       15...[This is] Because, if it is not against you, it is for you. Anything that will take a child of God away from the presence of God, is that thing for him or against him? It is against him.
45.       That thing that will destroy you, is it against you or for you? [This is] Because whatever that takes a child of God away from the presence of God has destroyed him.
46.       Be it earthly things. Anything that moves you from the presence of God, that is what has destroyed you.
47.       That is your destroyer.
48.       16What is really happening in you? A pertinent question! Is that thing for you or against you? Can that thing permit you to stay in God’s presence? Or is that thing pulling you away from the Faith of Christ?
49.       Remember, departure takes place in the heart. That thing that is happening within you, is it a follow-follow spirit, so that nobody will query you and because of what you get from God? On the other hand, is what is happening in you bringing you closer and closer to God?
50.       This question goes to all of us, man and woman alike, young and old, including infants.
51.       I am not the one that wrote it. God said, “Including infants!” In the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, no infant was spared. In the days of Noah, no infant was spared. In the days of Jericho, no infant was spared. It will not start in our own day.
52.       That is why I appreciate our father and our mother for starting ahead of time, from infancy in planting that Word of God in us. I was telling Chiemelie that if any child in the Bride of Christ Ministry is given the level of training we were given by our parents at infancy, such a child can never be useless. Not even one.
53.       Who are you to sleep in Fellowship when we were small? Mummy will flog you, and after that, you will cry and enter into the Fellowship.
54.       When we came back home, at that tender age of six and seven years, we would be reading our jotters during the Family altar. That was the time when the Sunday Fellowship used to dismiss at about 4 or 5pm, yet nobody would feel tired.
55.       But what is happening now? What is happening now? Everywhere is filled with blind parents. Blind parents!
56.       Lazy blind parents! Lazy blind parents! And their children are patterning after their likes. Pursuing material things. Neglecting their families.
57.       A situation where somebody will be complaining about the misbehaviour of his or her child. But the question is, WHAT EFFORTS DID YOU MAKE? DID YOU DO WHAT WAS NECESSARY? You have too many reports everywhere. Why? No training.

REMEMBER THE BATTLE WE ARE FIGHTING IS NOT A PHYSICAL BATTLE BUT A SPIRITUAL ONE. EVERY MAN IS FIGHTING A BATTLE BUT AS LONG AS SOMEBODY IS NOT IN THE HAND OF GOD, HE IS IN THE HAND OF OUR ENEMY.

OPEN YOUR EYES AGAINST SPIRITUAL DANGERS [1]
ARE YOU FOLLOWING THE CLOUD OR THE CROWD PART 1; Page 89 verse 26. 12You want to live that type of independent life outside God? Go ahead! He is no longer persuading you to come back. He said what? Go ahead!
2.           You will continue with the independent life in hellfire. “Keep your advice to yourself”; “Do not guide me”; “My life is Okay”; “My life belongs to me”; “Leave me alone!”; “Everybody should go his or her way”
3.           A CHILD OF GOD IS CONTROLLED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD. Sure!!!
4.           What has God been doing from morning till now? He is planting His spirit into all of us. Amen!!! This is so that all through this week, the Word of God will take over our lives, from today, 24/7.
5.           That we might be in habitual Fellowship with God, so that we maintain the Vine-branch relationship, where I will be in My house, no going out. I will be here with My wife and all my children, with everybody in My household.
6.           We are moving within, not without. Having everything in common. Can a rat eat that which belongs to someone that is wide awake? To the one that does not know, his brother teaches him, for iron sharpeneth iron. Let me see whether the devil will fly into this house from the sky to carry us away. Am I making sense?
7.           Let this temptation come from wherever it wants to come. That’s all!
8.           Check the atmosphere that will be in this family after fellowship. Few hours, we enter tomorrow. Is Family altar not habitual Fellowship with God? Constant Fellowship from here will take us into tomorrow. You have that Fellowship with God the same way and everyday, continuously, till we enter Paradise.
9.           That is what God is trying to do in all the Families in the Bride. To those that take it seriously, THE SON OF MAN said last night that people that will joke with this Sunday fellowship at home will beat their chest at end and cry, “Had I known.” He said it casually upstairs. Just casually. So, you heard it.
10.       Yes sir! Just casually like that. And I marked it. The statement went forth casually.
11.       OPEN YOUR EYES AGAINST SPIRITUAL DANGERS [Every Sign From God is Stop Sign] VOLUME 1; Preached on 31ST January, 2016; Page 81 verse 57.
12.       It is just a place I mark as a confirmation of this casual statement that was made by The Almighty God last night.
13.       57Every statement from My mouth is a prophecy. Every action from Me is a fulfillment. Every event out there is a fulfilment.
14.       So, to you that are taking the Word of God casually, know that it is a Prophecy. To Ugochukwu that was taking the Word casually, did it come to pass? Yes!
15.       It came to pass. It came to fulfillment. So do not take the Word of God lightly. Do not ever take it casually. It is a prophecy that is going forth.
16.       I SAY WHAT I MEAN AND I MEAN WHAT I SAY.
17.       If all the Brethren in the Faith have this revelation, that every Word from THE SON OF MAN is a prophecy, Brethren, we would not even need God to tell us what our lives should look like, because we have been duly taught.
18.       There is no aspect of life we can lay hold on and say that God has not touched on this area. We are inexcusable before God.
19.       ARE YOU FOLLOWING THE CLOUD OR THE CROWD PART 1; Page 89 verse 26 – 29. 26You want to live that type of independent life outside God? Go ahead! You will continue with that independent life in hellfire. A child of God is controlled by the spirit of God.
20.       27Anyone that is not controlled by the spirit of God is not a child of God.
21.       If your life is not tailored according to the doctrines of Christ, do not force yourself. You are not a Seed of God.
22.       This is because the more the Word is going forth, the more the Message is being hammered into that person, the more the person will continually be repelling the Word; do not bother yourself. That person is not a seed of God. He is not a seed of God.
23.       27Anyone that is not controlled by the spirit of God is not a child of God. Is it not scriptural? He can never change. I am the one confirming it. God said that He is the One confirming it.
24.       28What is the spirit of God? The words I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life. The Word which we have been hearing from 8am till now, they are spirit and life to whosoever that will take them. It is not only life here, but life everlasting.
25.       This is also because, if we are happy with the Word of God, there is no way we will not live with God eternally. Would God not be happy having people like us living round about Him in the Bride?
26.       Those who have the honour and fear of God. No schism. No quarrelling. No backbiting! Nothing, nothing. No evil conscience before God and before man. What then is God’s nature? What then is the ticket? What then is the guarantee?
27.       28What is the spirit of God? The words I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life. Are you following the Cloud or the crowd? God is asking this question again.
28.       29Wise people of God follow the Cloud. Did the Voice say people with knowledge? No! Remember, this morning, God differentiated between knowledge and wisdom. Yes!
29.       The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. And the wisdom will lead you to follow the Cloud, because you know that the Cloud can never make any mistake. Wherever the Cloud points you to, that is the best place for you at that moment
30.       The foolish follows the crowd. The foolish ones follow the crowd, the devilish ways. They will come back with regrets and regrets.
31.       OPEN YOUR EYES AGAINST SPIRITUAL DANGERS [Every Sign From God is Stop Sign] VOLUME 1; Page 61 verse 26 – 32.
32.       26God has spoken to us in this Bridal Faith using prophets, using dreams, using visions. And has spoken to us mouth to mouth, ear to ear, face to face. Even as we are hearing Him now.
33.       27In other words, we do not need any other interpretations. We do not need any other prophecy or vision or personal revelation or reasoning. That will be a part of our destruction. Have we seen it that reasoning of the Word of God will lead to our own destruction? Accept it as pure and clean as it is. Do not process it in your brain.
34.       Brethren, let us pay attention here. 28WHATEVER REASONING, WHATEVER INTERPRETATION, WHATEVER YOU CONJECTURE IN YOUR MIND AS YOUR THOUGHT CONTRARY TO WHAT IS CLEARLY PLACED BEFORE YOU IS WHAT WILL DESTROY YOU. It is what will destroy me.
35.       If God gives you a word and you start reasoning it by asking, “How possible is this? Can He do it? Will God do this one? Will He do that one? If I do not obey it, what will happen?” That interpretation you are giving is what will destroy you.
36.       It marks you off!
37.       29NOBODY EVER DETACHES FROM THE HEAD, FROM THE APPROVED GUIDE WITHOUT SOMETHING HAPPENING IN HIM.
38.       You cannot leave God without a war going on in you. And the devil won that war. That is when you detach from the Guide. This is because, if it is God that won the battle, you will still remain attached to the Guide. But for you to detach from the Guide, the devil won that battle.
39.       29NOBODY EVER DETACHES FROM THE HEAD, FROM THE APPROVED GUIDE WITHOUT SOMETHING HAPPENING IN HIM.
40.       Brethren, do we have an approved Guide in our day?
41.        YOUR PERSONAL INTERPRETATION, YOUR OPINION, YOUR IDEOLOGY, YOUR PHILOSOPHY, HOW YOU THINK IT SHOULD GO, WHICH GOD DOES NOT REQUIRE,... Brethren, have you heard it? How you think it should go. The mind of God against man.
42.       ...THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT DETACH YOU FROM THE GUIDE. The way you think it should go. “I expected God to do it like this.” You are now giving God a laid down pattern which He [God] will follow to meet your heart desires. Bending God to your side.
43.       He is not striving to walk with God. Rather, he wants God to walk with Him.
44.       You are now giving God a laid down pattern which He [God] should follow. Were you here when He existed alone?
45.       30What is more? the moment you are detached, watch, those things that are happening in you will constitute your destroyers.
46.       The moment you detach from the Guide, those things that were happening in you will all gang up and then, kill you finally. Because they are legions and myriads of demons that have gathered in a meeting just for you.
47.       And how are they going to destroy you? First of all, they will close your ears and blind you. They will close your ears from hearing any useful word that will help you. They will blind you from seeing that God had been patient with you.
48.       30What is more? the moment you are detached, watch, those things that are happening in you will constitute your destroyers.
49.       Before you will be destroyed, God said you will harden up your heart. Those things that are happening in you will constitute your destroyers.
50.       31if you know the reason why you detached, that thing that brought you back and pushed you out again, where it has pushed you to is the place of destruction. That’s truth!
51.       There is a war happening within. God said that before He will destroy you, He will blind you, close your ears and then harden up your heart so that you can never ever accept any Word of God again.
52.       In that condition, you do not know that you are making the devil to be happy every minute of the day, for you have left the place where God kept you. That’s Truth.
53.       Remember that it is at this period of waiting that so many people slipped away. So it now amounts to various dreams which our late Elder, Mike Nwanga had, where THE SON OF MAN kept the Bride and said, “Let me go. I will be coming back.” Many people went out. Many went to the market and to diverse places.
54.       All those thing are interpreting what is happening right now. So many people have detached in the heart. That is why God is very, very hot trying to bring them back to Himself again, because He will not be happy losing them in the end.
55.       31if you know the reason why you detached, that thing that brought you back and pushed you out again, where it has pushed you to is the place of destruction. this is Because the moment God has revealed Himself, confirmed His presence, the Bride has no more option.
56.       Brethren, do we have any option again? God has been revealed to us. Look at the supernatural vindications here. He has been revealed. His presence has been confirmed, even right now.
57.       We have no other option. so We DO noT say “we have option.” what we have is mandate.
58.       Whether we like it or not, if you must be saved. If you must escape the wrath of God, it is “Whether you like it or not.” No more negotiation. No more proposal. No more “I think.”
59.       ARE YOU FOLLOWING THE CLOUD OR THE CROWD PART 1; Page 103 verse 66.
60.       66When you harden your heart against the truth [this truth which you are hearing right now since morning], you have indirectly hardened your heart against God.
61.       You have sealed your doom.
62.       You have told God, “If it is hell, let me go there.” And you have stamped it immediately because you have rejected that Word of God in your day.
63.       And you have already determined your fate. Your destiny; your final bus stop is already determined by you. You have determined your fate at last. Sure!
64.       67That is why you must be very, very careful. One that is out of the way of truth would not like to perish alone. A drowning man can hardly like to perish alone. He must like to hold something, somebody who will follow him. Amen.




NOBODY FALLS SICK PHYSICALLY WITHOUT FIRST FALLING SICK SPIRITUALLY. THE SAME WAY, IF YOU ARE NOT SPIRITUALLY SOUND, THERE IS NO NEED TALKING ABOUT CHARACTER.
CHARACTER IS A FORMATION OF THE SPIRIT. EVEN SUCCESS AND FAILURE ARE BOTH SPIRITUAL. WHEN YOU FAIL SPIRITUALLY, YOU MUST FELL PHYSICALLY. YOU BETTER THINK ABOUT IT AND BEGIN TO REPOSITION YOURSELVES IMMEDIATELY.

OPEN YOUR EYES AGAINST SPIRITUAL DANGERS [2]
OPEN YOUR EYES AGAINST SPIRITUAL DANGERS [Every Sign From God is Stop Sign] VOLUME 1; Page 109 verse 31 – 39.
2.           31All that are in this Bridal Faith must, of a necessity, be A disciple of the Son of Man or never! If any is found outside His discipleship, he is not of His flock, for this is the day of the Son of Man.
3.           32Not the day of Moses, not the day of David or any of the prophets. Not William Branham’s day.
4.           Did you hear what God said we should be? Did He say the disciples of the devil?
5.           33The Kingdom belongs to somebody and He is the one that puts people into the Kingdom not because they are vying for it, not because they are desiring it.
6.           He puts people into the Kingdom as many as He wants after the counsel of His own will.
7.           34It is not he that willeth or he that runneth, [but] the Great God, that showeth mercy. And He will show mercy to whomsoever He willeth. Anybody He wants to harden, He will harden.
8.           35For God cannot destroy a man without first of all hardening his heart. When God hardens the heart of a man against the truth, it is clear. God is poised to destroy that person. No going back.
9.           36Anybody God has earmarked for destruction can never behold the majesty of God. What?
10.       Anybody God has earmarked for destruction can never behold the majesty of God. That person can never see the supremacy of God over him again.
11.       And can never differentiate between the Word of God and the word of man. He can never. He would not even know when God is talking to him again.
12.       He can never, because he has already been earmarked for destruction.
13.       Brethren, let us pay attention here. 37Can God use the person? Yes! For he is enjoying the free gift. He is enjoying air. He is enjoying water. He is enjoying nature. So, he must serve.
14.       38Will the services save him? No! For you will notice that he will be rendering all these services in disobedience to the Word. Can a man render services to the Lord in disobedience to the Word? Yes!
15.       39That is why God recognizing that He said ahead of time, “Obedience to the Word is better than sacrifice.”
16.       Let Me tell you, there is no way you can obey without rendering sacrifice. But you can render sacrifice without obeying – without obedience. Is it true?
17.       Have you seen that God can use someone and discard the person at the end? Why? The person did not conform his or her life to the will of God. He preferred sacrifice to God and eye-service to obedience to the Word of God.
18.       I am centering on 3 Messages: [1] OPEN YOUR EYES AGAINST SPIRITUAL DANGER, [2] ARE YOU FOLLOWING THE CLOUD OR THE CROWD? AND [3] RANDOM COMMENTS FROM THE SON OF MAN.
19.       RANDOM COMMENTS FROM THE SON OF MAN; Page 46 verse 11 through 14. 11You see, when you come face to face with the truth, and you turn your back against the truth, get ready. I say get ready.
20.       You have seen the truth. You have also heard the truth. And then you turn your back against that truth, you have told God, “I want to be destroyed.” That is the clear interpretation of what you told God. “I want to be destroyed.”
21.       Your wildlife will never be controlled in this life and the end thereof is death. Is it only death here? Eternal death also.
22.       12However, when you come face to face with the Word of God and you receive it, you will live a challenging life. You will be happy with yourself. You will be happy with God.
23.       Brethren, if you are happy with God, do you not know? If your heart is right with God, does your life not give you joy? If you are in right standing with God at any moment, watch your life. It gives you joy.
24.       Everyday, your face is beaming with smiles. Then you know you are in right standing with your Creator. But if you are not in right standing with God, what will be your disposition? You will always live in fear because you do not know what is going to happen next.
25.       All of them that came face to face with the truth and turned their backs against it, they are regretting their lives today.
26.       God is saying that all the people that came face to face with this truth and turned their backs against it, they are regretting their lives today.
27.       13Look at God reminding Mode the time he abandoned the Faith with Lambert and went away. Only Kerian was with Me and Kerian was warned, “Anyday you leave My house and go out, to join your brethren, your relations that abandoned this Faith, your condition must be worse. You will join them and taste the world. The pleasures of the world will be pulling you along. And to restore you again will be impossible.”
28.       Brethren, what is happening till now. Look at God. 2005!
29.       14You see why it is very delicate to come to this Ministry and play hypocrisy. If you are in a Ministry like this Faith where God Himself is speaking to His children, pay attention and be serious with all you are hearing, or else you will regret.
30.       Am I the one saying it? God documented it 15years ago for our learning. He said that this is a very delicate Ministry, and he pities anyone that comes into this Ministry and plays hypocrisy.
31.       Where God is talking to all His children every day, live, God said, “Pay attention and be serious with all you are hearing, or else. You will regret at the end.”
32.       And that is the last one you will read o. I know you have many, but we are not dying today
33.       A quote from the Compendium as related to our family here; Page 171, last Paragraph.
34.       So, that subjection God needs from Me is the same subjection He needs from My family. My obedience to the teachings He has given to Me is the same obedience He needs in the hands of the members of My family.
35.       Brethren, have you seen what God requires from our hands as members of this family. Obedience to His Word which he has given to us.
36.       Failure to do that, you count yourself unworthy of this blessed eternal life which THE SON OF MAN is authorized to offer to all of us.
37.       Again. My obedience to the teachings He has given to Me is the same obedience He needs in the hands of the members of My family.
38.       For He, first of all, obeyed and became the author of eternal salvation unto them that will obey Him. [Hebrews 5:8 – 9]
39.       Failure to do that, you count yourself unworthy of this blessed eternal life which THE SON OF MAN is authorized to offer to all of us.
40.       OPEN YOUR EYES AGAINST SPIRITUAL DANGERS [Every Sign From God is Stop Sign] VOLUME 1; Page 125 verse 52.
41.       52These things happened as examples unto us. They are documented as a warning that we might be very careful.
42.       Open your eyes against spiritual danger. Disconnecting from the leader takes place in the heart.
43.       Since today, we have been emphasizing on the heart. The heart.
44.       53The moment there is distrust, that is the point where you stop.
45.       Following the messenger means confiding in Him, depending on Him, relying on Him, trusting in Him. Is it not true?
46.       54THE MOMENT YOUR LOYALTY IS QUESTIONABLE, YOU ARE NO LONGER A DISCIPLE. AND WHAT MAKES YOUR LOYALTY QUESTIONABLE? IT IS THE INTERPRETATION THAT IS COMING OUT OF YOUR HEART. And out of my heart. That is what makes my loyalty questionable.
47.       55This Message is a plain Message. Christ is plain. We have been commanded to look up to Him as our example to the point that if there be anything we cannot understand, our duty is to do it the way we have learnt from Him.
48.       St. Paul came openly and challenged the people saying, “Who can accuse me of sin?” Just like Moses. He said, “Follow Me as I followed Christ. Imitate Me.” He said, “You have known Me all these years, My doctrines, My manner of life. What is then your trouble? What is your trouble?
49.       I am sounding this alarm because what will make people fall into danger is already happening everywhere.
50.       Amen!
51.       Random comments from the son of man; Page 91 verse 60.60If you actually have been touched in one way or the other,...
52.       From morning till now, we have been hearing nothing but the Word of God, enriching our souls, so that in the end we shall be glorified with God eternally.
53.       60If you actually have been touched in one way or the other, why not kneel down wherever you are and talk to God. If you have seen yourself in the picture of all you have been hearing from the Message[s], why not kneel down and proclaim yourself guilty before God. And then as an individual, plead His mercy, plead His forgiveness, plead on behalf of your Local Assembly, and on behalf of other Local Assemblies. Plead on behalf of your children.
54.       THIS IS A MOMENT OF TRUTH. Brethren, on this note, I say remain blessed everybody.










CONCLUSION

F
rom morning till this hour, look at the time. It is approximately twenty-five minutes to three o’clock [2:35pm]. And we started at the right time, precisely 8 o’clock.
2.           Have we overstayed? Any regret? Any regret? Are we happy? This is our first worship in this home on the first day of the week, as commanded by the LORD, that we should go home and worship in our homes.
3.           We can compare and contrast. Brethren, the difference is clear. I say, the difference is clear.
4.           From what we have been hearing since morning, we can now see the book of Hebrews is coming to pass, that said we should examine ourselves, evaluate ourselves, scrutinize ourselves to know whether we are holding unto truth or whether we have backslidden in the heart.
5.           This is so that if we have backslidden, God has stretched out His physical hand here. So, this is what I will call God’s last mercy. GOD’S LAST MERCY. That is what I will call it. The highest love. God’s last mercy. That is what I will call it.
6.           So, we give God the praise. The title of the Message is EVALUATION which includes the Sunday School, the Apostolic teaching, the Pastoral and the Evangelical. It has only but one title; EVALUATION. EVALUATION or EVALUATE YOURSELF.
7.           I think that one is better. EVALUATE YOURSELF, preached in this family, today’s date of which today is the end of all the Sundays in the month of March. The last Sunday of the month of March.
8.           What a glorious ending of the month. A beautiful ending. I pray that April will open up on a much more beautiful note. If the background is like this, a good foundation has been laid. True or false?
9.           Well, My prayer is that we pay heed to all we have heard and strive earnestly to put all we have heard into practice so that God will come to our help.
10.       Remember, God does not help a lazy man. He that is not struggling to do the will of God can never be helped by God. But when you are struggling and doing your best, God understands. He will come your way.
11.       I am really very grateful. And I am praying that God’s blessing will continue to be showered upon this family and upon every other family that has taken this Message and the instructions from God very serious.
12.       I pray for more of God’s anointing on the Ministers He has used in this gathering. My joy knows no bounds, that children that were born in this Family have grown to the point where God can now use them to encourage Me and My wife, even at this old age, showing us signs that they are going to take over.
13.       So, even if we sleep in peace now, no regrets. But we are not sleeping. We will still stay to guide them. We will still stay to nurture them until they will stabilize. So, we can see the gifts manifesting, and we are beneficiaries of the gifts.
14.       To all of you that are here in the house of THE SON OF MAN from your different families, I give you one advice. God can use you. God can use you, if you surrender your life to God. The extent God will use you is the extent you surrender your life to God.
15.       If you do not surrender your life to God, and you are not willing to do any meaningful work for God and for humanity, God will never use you.
16.       So what is My exam? If you want to prosper in this family, [1] See yourself as a member of this Family, where your salvation lies. [2] Take the position of Samuel in the house of Eli. I repeat. Take the position of Samuel in the house of Eli.
17.       Samuel chose to be a priest in the temple. For that reason, he did not joke with the words of Eli.
18.       You are fortunate that this house is not the house of Eli. Eli had stubborn and irate children. But the children God gave Me are priests after the order of Melchizedek.
19.       They are not priests after the order of Aaron, but after the order of Melchizedek. They are able Ministers of the New Testament. So, if you can pattern after them and grow alongside with them, it shall be well with you.
20.       But where envy and jealousy and “I don’t care” attitude will not permit you to humble yourself down and then learn, that you may grow thereby, you are going to meet your doom.
21.       Even if you stay here till the day of translation, the truth is that you will be among those who will go out and tell the heathens that translation has taken place, and that your Master and His family are gone. If they will ask you why you did not go with them, what will be your reply. Shall we pray.

PRAYER
22.       Our Heavenly Father, if there be anything greater than THANK YOU, we will offer it. We join our hands as a family and say, THANK YOU LORD, for what we have received from you today is marvelous in our eyes.
23.       And we are praying O God, that the expected fruits shall be seen in our character, that today has marked a turning point in our lives. May we never joke with what we have heard.
24.       Save us from this hour. And help our children to grow in the Truth in the knowledge of who you are and remain useful to themselves to you and to all mankind now and to all eternity.
25.       Visit everybody that will hear this Message with your mercy and love. Through Christ our LORD, we pray. Amen.
