EVALUATE YOURSELF PART 1.VOL 3


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

FOR ANY TRANSMUTATION TO TAKE PLACE THERE MUST BE A REACTION. THE REACTION IS THE EXPERIENCE. EXPERIENCE IS A GREAT TEACHER. IT SANCTIFIES OUR CONSCIENCES, REFORMS OUR PERSONS AND FERTILIZES OUR SOULS. IT CONQUERS FEAR , ILLUMINATES THE MIND AND CONFIRMS OUR STAND. ONE WITHOUT AN EXPERIENCE IS STUNTED.

FROM THE MESSAGE THE ESSENCE OF THE GOSPEL PREACHED ON 5TH APRIL 1997. PG. 71 VS. 1
1
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
I thank God who has given us this wonderful opportunity to stay in our homes and worship God in our own way, not looking at the mixed multitude.
2.           The Congregation at GTC and every other place is made up of the mixed multitude. But in the family, we know who we are. If we have any problem with any person, we know who that person is, and we will never allow him to corrupt us.
3.           He will either change his lifestyle or we will make this place uncomfortable and unbearable for him.
4.           Remain blessed everybody. We thank God for this wonderful Teaching we have received this morning. Anybody that says that he is not blessed by this Sunday School is an unbeliever among us. He is a pagan.
5.           This is because there were many nuggets that came out this morning. Let me just refresh our minds.
6.           ARE YOU DIVINELY CONNECTED TO GOD? Page 41 verse 18. 18...WHEN SOMEBODY IS DIVINELY CONNECTED TO THE ELOHIM, NOTHING IN THIS LIFE NOR IN THE LIFE TO COME DISCONNECTS HIM BECAUSE IT IS A SPIRITUAL AFFAIR.
7.           It is not a physical connection. This has nothing to do with whether you are a biological child of THE SON OF MAN, or that you are a son or that you are a daughter, or that you are a Bishop or that you are this or that. It is completely a spiritual affair. And it is purely personal.
8.           I was talking to the Brethren the other day, and I told them that I will never rest until I have my own experience of Who God is. This is because the prayer of an Elect of God is about having your own personal experience.
9.           An experience that will sustain you.
10.       This is because when we were growing up, we were seeing the Scriptures. We did not really know what was happening. We could read the testimonies. But as we grew, I prayed to God saying, “Give me my own experience to acknowledge my father to be God.” It is not that I did not believe, but I wanted to be sure.
11.       I wanted to have it as my own experience. And this is what has been keeping Me. And this experience can never leave my head. From time to time, when situations turn very tough and become very hard, I turn to my experience.
12.       So, every Elect of God should have that experience. And that experience is what God said that it is a spiritual affair, and that the moment you are connected to God, there is nothing that can buffet you about anymore.
13.       There is no condition or circumstance that can buffet you about again. Let the world fail today, it cannot stop you from believing God. Sure!
14.       This is the point where I want us to stand. When Joshua recognized this in Joshua 24:15, the Scripture said, “As for me and my household, ...” That was a decision because the family united to have that vision. Yes! Family unity!
15.       AND IF IT SEEM EVIL UNTO YOU TO SERVE THE LORD, CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY WHOM YE WILL SERVE; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD.” KJV
16.       So this is the stage we have come to. We are the pillars of the family. We will have the revelation and say, “As for us THE SON OF MAN’s family”, that is why we will rise and stand against anybody that wants to introduce evil into this family.” It can never work!
17.       This is because we want to be united like this and enter into Paradise. And if it is not your faith, you carry your bag and leave our house. That is why we sent Ugo out because we are only having but one aim, which is going to Paradise, united.
18.       Then we do justice according to the will of God. So, we do not want to have any stranger in our compound.
19.       There’s a WhatsApp group we opened as the pillars of the family which is just our in-laws and the boys in the family. We opened this group so that we all can be united and that any Message sent to this group, any recording, whatever it is, the aim is for us to be like Noah’s family.
20.       God said that whatever that happened in the past that He is going to correct all of them. When I pray, I use to tell God, “I do not care about Absalom. I do not care about anything. You said one thing. You said that whatever happened in the past, that you are the one that will correct it.”
21.       So, I am believing in your grace that I cannot go astray. I can never be known for that evil testimony. Yes! Revelation!
22.       I do not care. Jesus was the first son. Yet, he maintained the truth. I must be that first son.
23.       Elijah, first son. Isaiah, first son. Ezekiel, first son. Amos, first son. Malachi, first son. Zephaniah, first son. Abraham, first and only son. Noah, first and only son. Revelation!
24.       I do not care about Absalom or the first son of Noah. I do not need them. So this is the revelation that we all should have.
25.       Even Absalom should not be blamed. David was to be blamed, for the Bible said, “David never disciplined his first son.” He allowed his first son to have his way. Then he brought shame and disgrace to them.  [1 Kings 1:5 – 6 LB]
26.       Remember that when you leave your sons and daughters to have their ways, the Bible said that children that are allowed to have their ways must bring shame, dishonour and disgrace to the family and to themselves.
27.       Bro Ben Mbah and the wife allowed the children to have their ways, and they raised criminals. Bro Shed and his wife allowed their children to have their ways. Look at what they raised. Up till now, Chika is yet to differentiate between God and devil.
28.       He is yet to differentiate between the Voice of God and the voice of a stranger. Hence an unknown stranger caused Chika of all Chikas to bow down his head and receive “blessing” because money is attached to it.
29.       His father bowed down before Roman Catholic youth, calling them “Christian Brethren”. “Your fellow Christian brother”. “Your Christian Brethren greet you”.
30.       I want to show us something to confirm this Word that we are hearing. You all know that in this family here, know it that Mummy is the only Sister here. The rest of us are men. We are now talking to ourselves.
31.       1 Timothy 6:6 – 10 Living Bible. 6Do you want to be truly rich? Can you hear this? YOU ALREADY ARE IF YOU ARE HAPPY AND GOOD. If you are happy and good, you are truly rich
32.       7After all, we didn’t bring any money with us when we came into this world, and we can’t carry a single penny when we die.
33.       8So, we should be well satisfied without money if we have enough food and clothing.
34.       9BUT PEOPLE WHO LONG TO BE RICH SOON BEGIN TO DO ALL KINDS OF WRONG THINGS TO GET MONEY, THINGS THAT HURT THEM AND MAKE THEM EVIL-MINDED AND FINALLY SEND THEM TO HELL ITSELF.
35.       That’s truth! We are talking to ourselves.
36.       10FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS ALL KINDS OF SIN. And that is where the devil is holding the whole world captive. Some people have even turned away because of their love for it, and as a result have pierced themselves with many sorrows. On that day, Chika started crying.
37.       O Timothy, you are God’s man. Run from all these evil things,... Put your name there. Call Chika. Call Wisdom. Each is God’s man. Call Promise!
38.       O Timothy, you are God’s man. RUN FROM ALL THESE EVIL THINGS, AND WORK INSTEAD AT WHAT IS RIGHT AND GOOD. Learning to trust him and love others and to BE PATIENT AND GENTLE.
39.       So, God is saying that all these things will come our ways, you should do what? “Run! You are God’s man.” 1 Timothy 6:11. Amplified version of the Bible.
40.       11BUT AS FOR YOU, O MAN OF GOD, FLEE FROM ALL THESE THINGS; AIM AT AND PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS (right standing with God and true goodness),...Be in right standing with God at a time like this. Amen!
41.       ...GODLINESS (WHICH IS THE LOVING FEAR OF GOD and being Christ like),... Loving fear of God is godliness.
42.       ...godliness (which is the loving fear of God and being Christlike),... And being what? CHRIST-LIKE! And being what? CHRIST-LIKE! I just want to confirm what we are just hearing.
43.       Godliness and being Christ-like is great gain.
44.       You see all these things that are happening, what are we supposed to be doing now? This is where I am drawing my topic? WHAT IS EXPECTED FROM US AT A TIME LIKE THIS?




TAKE THE NATURE OF THE SON OF MAN. I HAVE NO PAROCHIAL INTEREST IN THIS FAITH; I MEAN AM NOT GIVING YOU FAIR ATTENTION BECAUSE YOU ARE THIS AND THAT TO ME. YOU ARE ALL THE SAME BEFORE THE SON OF MAN, MAN OR WOMAN NO MATTER WHERE YOU COME FROM. I AM FREE, FAIR AND FIRM TO ALL- FAIR AND FIRM. FREE! I DO NOT CONSIDER  WHO YOU ARE NEITHER DO I CONSIDER THE RELATIONSHIP
FROM THE MESSAGE HAVE FAITH IN THE SPOKEN WORD PREACHED ON 14TH JULY, 2013, PG. 96 VS.12

WHAT IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD? [1]
 Titus 1:2. Living Bible. I have been sent to bring faith TO THOSE GOD HAS CHOSEN AND TO TEACH THEM TO KNOW GOD’S TRUTH ... We are teaching ourselves at a time like this to know God’s truth.
2.           And about the hour we are living in.
3.           ...GOD’S TRUTH  – THE KIND OF TRUTH THAT CHANGES LIFE... Oh No! So, if after coming, your life is not changed, it goes to show that the fellow is not a seed of God.
4.           THE KIND OF TRUTH THAT CHANGES LIFE  – SO THAT THEY CAN HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, WHICH GOD PROMISED THEM BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN – AND HE CANNOT LIE.
5.           Titus 1:1 - 2. Good News Bible. 1From Paul, a servant of God and an Apostle of Jesus Christ. I was chosen and sent to help the faith of God’s chosen people and to lead them to the truth taught by our religion,...
6.           To lead them to the truth taught by our Faith. That is what we are doing now.
7.           ...which is based on the hope for eternal life. Bro Elijoe, do you understand the language at all? Good!
8.           All that we are teaching and the hope thereof is because of eternal life. No other thing.
9.           The reason why we are following the person saying these things is because of this teaching which gives eternal life.
10.       God, who does not lie, promised us this life before the beginning of time. Amen!
11.       God, who does not lie. He has never lied about anything.
12.       THE IMPACT OF THE WORD OF GOD IN OUR HEART; This Message is the 2020 NEW YEAR MESSAGE preached in the early hours of 1st January, 2020; Page 30 Nugget.
13.       I hope that what we have been hearing from the mouth of God since morning is making positive impact in our lives and gradually transforming us for the better, making us candidates of Heaven and not of hell.
14.       But when you do not yield to this Message, truly speaking, you are heading towards hell. You are running at a very fast speed into hell. By neglecting the truth and disobeying the truth, you will pay dearly in hellfire.
15.       If the present stage of the ministry does not give you joy, you are not saved. I repeat it: If The present stage of the Ministry of the Bride of Christ, where we are now, what is happening around us, in us and in our midst, if it does not give you joy more than your necessary food, more than the money you have, THE SON OF MAN is saying that you are not yet saved. Amen!!!
16.       And do not ever rest until you begin to have that joy. When we talk of salvation, you do not have it because you have not yet been saved. You might be on the brink of getting it.
17.       How do you get it? Today is the day. Today is the day of salvation. When you hear this Word harden not your heart as in the days of provocation. This is because any moment from now, more provocations are coming. And instead of repenting, you will be cursing God more and more.
18.       The present stage of the Ministry is an admirable stage, and it goes to confirm that we are not going home in sorrow.
19.       Just like we are here in this family. Am I making sense? Since this Ministry started, this is the first time I am sitting on the same seat as we are now. It will either be that I am placed on the pulpit or she will be placed where she will be seated all alone.
20.       At this stage, we are both seated hear echoing, Amen, while seated on the same seat. This is the reason why this stage gives Me joy.
21.       If The present stage of the Ministry of the Bride of Christ, where we are now, what is happening Note: [1]around us, [2]in us and [3]in our midst,...They are three different things.
22.       ....what is happening Note: [1]AROUND US, [2]IN US and [3]IN OUR MIDST, if it does not give you joy more than your necessary food, more than the money you have, THE SON OF MAN is saying that you are not yet saved. And do not ever rest until you begin to have that joy.
23.       Chika! Are you paying attention? You are running after the same money your father had been striving without success to get, to the extent that a heathen you do not know called you from Osun State and told you to bow down so that he will “bless you” so that you will become rich.
24.       You bowed down your head and was replying,“ Amen Amen Amen! I know I will be a millionaire.
25.       Does that thing which happen in you and around you give you joy or does it give you sorrow. That is the question. What is happening in you, around you and in our midst, is it giving you joy as a believer or is it causing you to put your hand on your jaw, thinking about your fate?
26.       Yes! You will be overwhelmed with fear.
27.       When the message is going forth, you will just sit down and be moping. The person is not sleeping. Fear has overwhelmed the person about what God is about to do.
28.       Did I not say it that if not for one thing, I would have carried My family home and stay with them there? We will be living on our own within our own home and be living our life the way we have agreed with the Almighty God.
29.       And do not ever rest until you begin to have that joy. The present stage of the Ministry is an admirable stage, and it goes to confirm that we are not going home in sorrow.
30.       So we are going home.
31.       It is with joy that we shall go to heaven. It is with happiness that we shall go to heaven. The present stage of the Ministry is really a glorious one.
32.       God has been looking for a people all these years that He will lead by His Word, and He has never found these people until now.
33.       And we are privileged to be numbered among those people God has found now at this closing hour of the whole thing.
34.       THE IMPACT OF THE WORD OF GOD; Page 31 verse 2 – 6. Anybody whose heart is resisting the Truth can never have real happiness,... Sure! Say it again!
35.       Anybody whose heart is resisting the Truth can never have real happiness, IF YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPINESS MEANS.
36.       Happiness means the joy that comes in one being in right relationship with God.
37.       SONG: [Trust and obey, for there is no other way to be happy in the LORD but to trust and obey.
38.       When we walk with the LORD in the Light of His Word, what a Glory He sheds on our way. While we do His good will, He abides with us still. And with all who will trust and obey.
39.       Trust and obey, for there is no other way to be happy in the LORD but to trust and obey.]
40.       Happiness means the joy that comes in one being in right relationship with God.
41.       If there is any other thing that gives you joy other than your relationship with God, your Creator, your Maker, go and re-examine it. You are in Hell.
42.       And you know it not.
43.       YOU ARE LUCKY. COUNT YOURSELF AS LUCKY PEOPLE BECAUSE THE EXAMINER IS HERE. YOUR EXAMINER IS ALSO YOUR LECTURER.
44.       He is your supervisor, your HOD, your dean, your VC. He signs your certificate.
45.        YOUR EXAMINER IS ALSO YOUR LECTURER. He is the one that also sets the exam. HE IS THE ONE THAT WILL ALSO MARK THE SCRIPTS.
46.       Once He adjudges you free, you are free. But if He says you are not free, you are not free. REMEMBER, I AM THE FINAL BUS STOP FOR ALL HUMAN BEINGS.
47.       All human beings. Believers and unbelievers.
48.       YOU ARE THE NEXT TO DIE Volume 2: Preached on Sunday 23rd February, 2020. Page 34 from verse 24 – 29.
49.       The Message that came out today. You are the next to die. So, get ready to die. READY TO DIE.
50.       WHAT SEPARATES US FROM THE ALMIGHTY GOD EMANATES FROM OUR HEARTS. What?
51.       WHAT SEPARATES US FROM THE ALMIGHTY GOD EMANATES FROM OUR HEARTS. True or false?
52.       WHAT ENDEARS US TO GOD ALSO COMES FROM OUR HEARTS.
53.       What unites us; what endears us to God is also from our hearts.
54.       WHAT DRAWS US NEARER TO GOD IS EQUALLY SOMETHING THAT EMANATES FROM OUR HEARTS.
55.       IT IS BETTER I DISTANCE MYSELF IN THE FLESH FROM GOD AND BE UNITED WITH GOD IN THE HEART.
56.       Let us take note of this. It is better we do what? IT IS BETTER I DISTANCE MYSELF IN THE FLESH FROM GOD AND BE UNITED WITH GOD IN THE HEART.
57.       Like our children that are afar off. They are distant from us in the flesh, but their hearts are in this family. Our hearts are also in their family. True or false?
58.       So it is. THE HEART OF GOD IS CONSTANTLY IN THE FAMILY OR EVERY HOME THAT FEARS, HONOURS AND OBEYS GOD.
59.       BUT THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN BE UNITED WITH GOD IN THE HEART AND DISTANCE HIM IN THE FLESH. BEFORE YOU DISTANCE SOMEBODY IN THE FLESH, YOU HAVE DISTANCED THE PERSON IN YOUR HEART.
60.       YOU REJECT SOMEONE IN YOUR HEART, YOU SEPARATE FROM HIM IN THE FLESH. I hope we are paying attention.


WE KNOW THOSE WHO ARE OUR PROBLEM. OUR PROBLEM IS WITH THOSE WHO JOINED US ALONG THE WAY, WHO NEVER KNEW THE TRUTH OR THOSE WHO WERE TROUBLING US FROM THE BEGINNING. IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE OLD ONES EXAMINE YOURSELF. YOU WERE STILL TROUBLING US THEN, THE SAME VOICE IS STILL ROARING ON YOU. THE NEXT PROBLEM WE HAVE IS THE OLD ONES WHO DON’T WANT BELIEVERS TO BELIEVE.

WHAT IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD? [2]
You are the next to die: Volume 2: Preached on Sunday 23rd February, 2020. verse 32 – 35. Maybe you do not know that the devil is not happy with you. If it has not been for God’s intervention, God fighting for you, many would have died before now.
2.           THE DEVIL KNOWS about YOUR GOING OUT AND YOUR COMING IN. HE MONITORS YOU.
3.           IF GOD WILL CLOSE HIS EYES, TURN HIS BACK FOR ONE SECOND AGAINST AN INDIVIDUAL, DISASTER MUST SURELY STRIKE [THAT FELLOW].
4.           Brethren, this is pure truth!
5.           THAT IS WHY NO MATTER YOUR PRAYERS, NO MATTER YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE SCRIPTURES AND THINGS LIKE THAT, MAKE A SINGLE SLIP, BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, SOMETHING TERRIBLE WILL HAPPEN [TO YOU]. That’s Truth!
6.           AND ONCE IT HAPPENS, YOU WILL COME BACK TO YOUR SENSES. A SURE SIGN THAT THERE IS SOMEBODY THAT IS FOLLOWING YOU BUMPER TO BUMPER, NOT GIVING YOU A BREATHING SPACE, AND WAITING FOR OPPORTUNITY TO STRIKE. This is bECAUSE, IF HE SPARES YOU, YOU MAY CHANGE YOUR MIND.
7.           THE SAME WAY, GOD IS ALL OUT TO PROTECT, FOLLOWING HIS ELECT BUMPER TO BUMPER, AND OFFERING [THEM] PROTECTION. Amen!
8.           In the same way, God is following His Elect bumper to bumper. The same way the devil is not giving us breathing space, God is making sure that nothing happens to His own. He keeps on following them [the Elect] bumper to bumper.
9.           This is because, at a time like this, the hearts of many will be drawn away. People will complain. Many things will befall them and they will be lamenting, “God, we are tired.” When Noah was in the Ark, there was no such thing.
10.       Some will even find fault with THE SON OF MAN, “Now, He is in His house.” An Igbo adage says that after breaking the kola nut, the person that presented the kola nut will take the first major part.
11.       If you are given something for distribution, you will first of all, put your own share aside, lest you may find out in the course of sharing the thing you find out that it may not go round or even get to you at all.
12.       YOU CAN LOSE EVERYTHING AND GET AWAY FREE, BUT THE MOMENT YOU LOSE PROTECTION FROM GOD, YOUR LIFE IS IN DANGER.
13.       LOSE PROTECTION FROM GOD, HOW DO YOU KNOW IT? GOD WILL SPEAK CONTRARY CONCERNING YOU.
14.       Then, you have lost your protection from God.
15.       I do not know whether it happens to any other person, but anytime I have a conversation with Daddy on the phone, and maybe we have a disagreement, in the whole of that day, nothing works for me. It is a personal experience.
16.       Some end up in road traffic accident.
17.       Sure! I have been involved in a road traffic accident. The moment you have a disagreement, for my own experience was a disagreement.
18.       I disagreed and THE SON OF MAN ended the call. I called again but he did not pick up the call and I knew there was a problem. And I dare not leave my house until I make that thing right.
19.       Saint Paul said, “Prove for yourself. From your daily experiences, can’t you know whether Christ is in you or not?
20.       Unless you are a counterfeit who will be rejected and disapproved on trial in the end. [2nd Corinthians 13:5]
21.       So, if I am a seed of God, there is no way I can have problem with God and things will be working to my favour.
22.       If I am a child of the devil, it will work very well for me, because this is the only experience that will make me to be sure that I am a seed of God, and I am always in what God is doing.
23.       IF YOU ARE FLOURISHING WHEN YOU ARE LIVING IN DISOBEDIENT TO GOD, YOU ARE NOT A SEED OF GOD. A SEED OF GOD DOES NOT FLOURISH WHEN HE IS DISOBEYING GOD. A SEED OF GOD CAN NEVER BE HAPPY WHEN HE IS DOING EVERYTHING OUTSIDE THE WILL OF GOD.
24.        IF DISOBEDIENCE AND EVIL LIFE GIVES YOU JOY, YOU ARE NOT A CHILD OF GOD. IF YOUR VENTURE IS PROGRESSING WELL, GIVING YOU JOY AND GOING THE WAY YOU WANT IT WHEN YOU ARE DISOBEDIENT TO THE WORD OF GOD, YOU ARE NOT A SEED OF GOD.
25.       BUT IF YOU ARE NOT PROGRESSING IN THAT CONDITION OF DISOBEDIENCE, THE HAND OF GOD IS IN YOUR LIFE. HE IS CALLING YOU TO A HALT. HE IS SAYING, “STOP AND THINK!”
26.       THE MOMENT THE VOICE OF GOD BEGINS TO GO CONTRARY TOWARDS YOU, YOU HAVE LOST YOUR PROTECTION AND YOU DO NOT NEED A PROPHET TO TELL YOU. UNIMAGINABLE THINGS WILL BE COMING TO YOU. Yes!
27.       NO MATTER THE PRAYERS, NO MATTER THE DEVOTION, THE MORE YOU PRAY THE WORSE THE SITUATION BECOMES. Pure Truth!
28.       AND WHENEVER GOD WILL CALL UPON YOU, HIS WORD WILL BE HARSH. HE WILL SPEAK TO YOU WITH UNFRIENDLY TONE BECAUSE YOU ARE NO LONGER A FRIEND. THAT IS WHY YOU MUST KNOW HOW GOD RELATES WITH YOU.
29.       At a time like this, you should do what? You should know how God relates with you, so that when God abandons you, you can find your way back.
30.       Whoever that God loves, he chastises, so that he might be zealous and repent. It is not ordinary chastisement. He said He will chastise you with hot displeasure because you belong to God. [Proverbs 3:12, Psalms 38:1, Hebrews 12:6, Revelation 3:19]
31.       If he allows you to have your way in everything, and you go unpunished, you are licensed in doing evil, you are an instrument in the hand of the devil. God had already judged you, condemned and set you aside.
32.       From the Messages we heard on Friday, the Scriptures said that Noah was in habitual fellowship with the Almighty [Genesis 6:9 AMP]. This is because God never abandoned him. God never spoke anything contrary against him.
33.       Friendly fellowship!
34.       So, at a time like this, let us know our relationship with the Almighty. Let us not be like a people who are just following God for blessings and this and that.
35.       God said that whatever thing you have in mind as you come before God, you will get that thing. If you come for marriage, you will get it. If you come for money, he will give it to you. Whatever you want, you will get it.
36.       But once it comes to eternal life, he said it is what? A negotiation!
37.       Yes! You will be given the cost of discipleship.
38.       IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW GOD RELATES WITH YOU, YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS STRAINED OR HAS BEEN COMPLETELY SEVERED.
39.       YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHEN THE SPIRIT HAS LEFT YOU.
40.       The fellow will still be coming closer. You do not know that the spirit has left you.
41.       The person will not know that he had already been cut off.
42.       That is why God said in the Message, 16 SECRETS TO RETAINING YOUR SANCTIFIED ESTATE, “Maintain a Vine-branch relationship with God.”
43.       That was the only way Noah succeeded because he was maintaining a Vine-branch relationship with God. He went into action as soon as God uttered any instruction to him. Let the readiness be in your heart to always obey God.
44.       There was a day I was reading my Qur’an and it said that the devil will make sin light to attract the believers of Allah.
45.       They [believers] will not note it is evil.
46.       Sin will be presented with an “It does not matter” impression and that it is the trending style or a trend of the day.
47.       The victims will be saying, “Am I the only one? This is the trend everywhere. Will my own be different?” THE DEVIL HAS MADE SIN LOOK VERY LIGHT.
48.       William Branham the Prophet also said so. He said, “Immediately the spirit of God leaves you, sin becomes light in your eyes.” The moment the spirit of God vacates from a man or a woman, sin becomes a light thing in his eyes. It becomes light and casual.
49.       Then you will know that the spirit of God has vacated from your life. You are now a ceremonial worshipper. A cosmetic flower. A synthetic flower. Everything around you will be cosmetic. Fair show. Eye service. Real worship ceases.
50.       HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD’S COUNTENANCE TOWARDS YOU? IT IS BY WATCHING THE COUNTENANCE OF THE PERSON TABERNACLING GOD [in your age].
51.       IF HIS COUNTENANCE TOWARDS YOU IS FRIENDLY, THEN GOD IS FRIENDLY WITH YOU.
52.       And we are privileged to be living with that Tabernacle in our house. Amen! Amen! Seeing Him every day face to face, every morning and every night.
53.       Yes! And serving His interest.
54.       Then seeing those things that we do that please Him, what do we do? An Igbo adage says that the person that is encouraged to continue in what he is doing is actually doing something very good, and so, the person should continue with that.
55.       The person should hold it tenaciously, grow in it and consolidate it.
56.       At a time like this, what is God expecting from us in this family?
57.       Grow in the knowledge of the LORD. Grow in wisdom.
58.       Let us not fail to understand one thing. I will still show us in our Messages that God is not saving us for being the sons or daughters of THE SON OF MAN. Never!
59.       It has nothing to do with salvation.  Never!
60.       He can protect you. He can bless us because we are from His loins, but when it comes to salvation, we are standing on our personal experience with Him, and not as his children.
61.       Mummy’s faith cannot save us. This is not a matter of asking her to pray for you because God answers her prayers. It has nothing to do with that one.
62.       Intercede for Me? No! This is not the Roman Catholic where they call on Mary to intercede for them. No! Catherine can never intercede for you. Ohaeri can never intercede for you. Does a dead person intercede for the living?


IF WE DO NOT WANT GOD TO DESTROY US, WE MUST REMAIN IN HIS SANCTIFIED CONDITION, WE MUST HAVE WHAT I CALLED ‘’VINE’’ NOTE IT V.I.N.E; VINE AND BRANCH RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST, THIS IS NUMBER ONE. YOU KNOW WHAT VINE AND BRANCH RELATIONSHIP IS ALL ABOUT: MOTHER AND CHILD RELATIONSHIP OR FATHER AND SON RELATIONSHIP.

AMEND YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
 YOU ARE THE NEXT TO DIE: VOLUME 2: Page 56 verse 22 – 24. 22IF YOU REFUSE TO PASS THROUGH THE REFINING PROCESS OF THE WORD OF GOD, YOU CAN NEVER LIVE WITH GOD ETERNALLY.
2.           If you do what? If you refuse to pass through the refining process. The refinery is very hot. Promise! Chika! Can you hear me? Chiemelie can you hear me? It is not easy.
3.           In this case, harassment is involved. I wish you were here when we were growing up. If I go to Apostle Ojiakor’s house and see Sam and the way he does things sluggishly, I query him, “Can’t you move like a man?”
4.           This is because this is how we were raised up. When you see the way we were trained one will think we were suffering or that it was very hard.
5.           It is now that we know the impact of those trainings. When I am now living alone, I will coordinate myself. Under three hours, I am done with everything I am doing. The food I am preparing does not prevent me from reading the Messages or my other books. I coordinate everything and still go out and come back. I even wake up and read my books.
6.           At times in the night, I wash my clothes and still read from 12midnight. It does not stop me from doing anything. There is no excuse. Nobody is there to help me.
7.           You do it alone and not about chewing kola nuts to remain awake. When somebody calls you to order reminding you that you are still a very young man, you will change your style of deceit.
8.           Sleeping is a matter of the mind. I told Mum that thing one day. If I can stay up because I have a wrestling match I want to watch at 1am, which will be shown live online and I want to watch it live at 1am, my eyes can never sleep until 1am. And I will still be watching that wrestling till 4am. I will not sleep. So you can see that sleep is a matter of the mind.
9.           Yes sir! Like father, like son.
10.       There was a day we watched Wrestlemania®, and we kept awake from 12midnight till 6am. We did not sleep throughout the night.
11.       Sleep is a matter of the mind. If you put your mind to it, you sleep off. But when it is fellowship time, before 10am the person is already asleep.
12.       It goes to show that the person is not a seed of God. That which gives the person joy is not the Word of God.
13.       While watching films and movies, there is nothing like chewing kola nuts or anything to keep awake.
14.       The person who does not have joy in the Word of God is not a seed of God.
15.       The Word of God is boring to such a person. The Word of God rather makes such a person cold. It does not warm such a person up.
16.       A child of God jubilates when the Word of God enters his or her heart. The entrance of the Word of God into the heart brings joy and happiness. It kindles the light in your heart.
17.       The same thing that will make Me remain in the pulpit from morning till morning. No food!
18.       22IF YOU REFUSE TO PASS THROUGH THE REFINING PROCESS OF THE WORD OF GOD, YOU CAN NEVER LIVE WITH GOD ETERNALLY. I AM TELLING YOU THE TRUTH. Sure!
19.       Do not expect to die in unbelief and rise up in Paradise. It can never happen.
20.       I went to the market with Chika. The topic that came up was, WHAT IS MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD? I was discussing it with Chika and I told him that if we all in this family can obey this teaching which God has been giving, I believe that translation will soon happen.
21.       This was our discussion in the vehicle and we kept on discussing from the market till we got home. It is still the same thing we are discussing. If we can have this spirit and have this vision, look at what God wants.
22.       If we can disturb God here on earth, and if you are not mindful of the people living with you here on earth, let us not take it too far. What is Paradise?
23.       There in Paradise, the God you want to live with is Apostle Peter Odoemena. You will be with Him till eternity. He is Christ. If He is upset with you here on earth, He will never carry you to Paradise.
24.       Sure! Say it loud and clear that it may be captured in the tape.
25.       IF HE [GOD, APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA] IS UPSET WITH YOU HERE ON EARTH, HE IS NOT TAKING YOU ANYWHERE. LET YOUR FAITH CLIMB AND REACH UNTO THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN, YOU ARE GOING NOWHERE.
26.       Sure!!! Sure!!! Confirmed! Confirmed!
27.       We take this Message too far. If you like be angry. Whenever your name is mentioned, you will get angry and you are expecting to be in Paradise where you will be a master of your own self to command and disturb Him there.
28.       Paradise will never change your nature, but reveals your nature more and more.
29.       This is because in that place, you are now equal with God. Your life is eternal there and nothing is happening to you. You then start opposing God in Paradise.
30.       SO THE MAIN THING IS, AMEND YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD HERE ON EARTH.
31.       Sure! Live the standard here
32.       LET GOD BE AT HOME WITH YOU. I SAY, LET GOD BE AT HOME WITH YOU.
33.       Amen! LET THE WORD OF GOD BE AT HOME IN YOUR HEART.
34.       IF YOU REFUSE TO PASS THROUGH THE REFINING PROCESS OF THE WORD OF GOD, YOU CAN NEVER LIVE WITH GOD ETERNALLY.
35.       God will not be at home with you. Be mindful of the word “REFUSE”. Was it not a human being that refused? Were you not the one that refused that the Word of God that helped others will not help you? Were you not the person that vowed never to obey?
36.       IF YOU REFUSE TO OBEY, WILL THE PROMISES OF GOD WHICH ARE IN HIS WORD GET TO YOU? GOD CAN BLESS US IN EVERYTHING, BUT NOT IN UNBELIEF.
37.       I was telling Chika that when he came, it seemed as if Daddy was harassing him so much. But when you calmed down and understood what Daddy had in mind for you, Chika’s name ceased to be mentioned.
38.       The person Daddy calls constantly now is Promise. Promise’ name is still being mentioned because he has not yet sat down to ask himself what Daddy expects from him. Daddy may be giving you books to read so that you will be knowledgeable and know what is required of you.
39.       If you do not know what is expected from you, when you are given simple task to perform, you will be going about it in anger as if somebody is bearing down on you unnecessarily.
40.       So, you gave Chika this remedy. He knows. This other person has also been given his own.
41.       Chika, tell yourself the truth. God said that the best advice is the advice one gives him or herself. We should take this Word personally to our own selves for God said, “Drive it home as it affects you as an individual.” If we do not do it, we are wasting our time here.
42.       It is the same thing with Chiemelie and the same thing for all of us. Find out, “What does God want from me as Wisdom.” I told Mum that the moment I got that revelation, I stood alone. I was no longer coming to know what my siblings are saying. My own was between me and God and from that point, it started working for me.
43.       All the time, having issues with Daddy, this and that, I am asking what is even the bone of contention? What are we struggling for? Until you take your time to see to it that you are fully blending.
44.       Bishop Okoh said if you go home, write a list of what God wants from you and then, write another list of the evil things you are doing. Yes!
45.       Compare the two by ticking the items on the list of the things God does not want and you are doing it. Do a thorough review and condemn the actions that are condemnable on the list.
46.       He said that if you make out a comprehensive list of all those things, you will now begin to live the right life in God.
47.       Amen!!! Itemize all the evil things God had done to you and all the evil things you have done against God so as to know that which is greater.
48.       Write down on side A whatever evil you can remember which God had done to you. Then on side B, write all the evils you have done against God. Review the list with a view to finding who is against the other, between you and God. This is also to know who is to repent.
49.       YOU ARE THE NEXT TO DIE: VOLUME 2: Page 56 verse 24. When you do not yield your heart to be refined by the refining work of the Word of God; if you do not make your heart a home for the Word of God, there is no way you can dream of living with God eternally. Sure!
50.       You can live with God temporarily here and share the testimonies others are sharing, “He is a good man who goes about doing good and was obtaining favour from God and from men”, and that is where you will stop.
51.       BUT WISE PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO DWELL WITH HIM ETERNALLY, AND NEVER TO PART AGAIN. THE FOOLISH WILL STUMBLE INTO HELL.
52.       Then the flood that saves others will not save you.
53.       Let us say, “God forbid! It is not our portion.”

IS IT THE DESIRE IN YOU TO EXERCISE FAITH IN THE WORD?


YOU ARE THE NEXT TO DIE: VOLUME 2: Page 57 verse 51 – 54.THE WORD IS TRYING TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR HEART AND TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR WAYS BECAUSE THE MOMENT YOUR HEART IS RIGHT, YOUR WAYS MUST BE RIGHT,... Put your hands together.
2.           ...YOUR THOUGHTS MUST BE RIGHT AND YOUR IMAGINATIONS MUST BE RIGHT. EVERYTHING YOU DO MUST BE RIGHT BECAUSE YOUR HEART IS RIGHT.
3.           Let us take it again. Let us put our names there....THE MOMENT MY HEART IS RIGHT, [1] MY WAYS MUST BE RIGHT,[2] MY THOUGHTS MUST BE RIGHT AND [3] MY IMAGINATIONS MUST BE RIGHT. [4] EVERYTHING YOU DO MUST BE RIGHT BECAUSE YOUR HEART IS RIGHT.
4.           And God must surely stop. He can never bypass you. You might be the vilest offender in the eyes of men. I hope I am making sense. But in the eyes of God, you are a holy fellow. Amen!
5.           Have you seen the reason why I recalled all of you? There is no reason for anybody to stay back. I want all My children to come down here.
6.           At a time like this, wise families recall all their children. I am feeling comfortable with Chiamaka because she is in a safe hand; in the hand of Bishop Chidubem. That is why I am feeling comfortable. I am feeling comfortable with Onyedika because she is in a safe hand, with Pastor Rotimi. I am comfortable with Ebube. She is in a safe hand, in the hand of Pastor Chibuzor.
7.           You see why I am relaxed? At a time like this many families are not even comfortable among themselves. How can Bro Shed and family be comfortable? Who will help who? Pascal at Enugu, who will help who? And many others like that. Who will help who?
8.           God said what? If you like be the vilest offender. Our song said, “The vilest offender who truly believes.” This is because the heart of that offender is right.
9.           Yes! Because he truly believes.
10.       I love singing songs to God because I read meaning into my songs. And if I read meaning into the song, it uplifts me. It is through the comfort of the songs that you know that it is a struggle to live a life of a child of God.
11.       A song said, “My God knows all about my struggles. He will guide till the day is dawn. There is not a friend like the lowly Saviour. No, not one. No, not one”
12.       No sinner comes that He will not take him. No, not one. No, not one.
13.       There is no hour that He is not near us, watching you, following you, redeeming you, guiding you, protecting you and building a hedge around you.
14.       Giving you a helping hand, once the desire to change is there.
15.       Look at the clause there: ONCE THE DESIRE IS THERE. That is the only thing God needs. He went further to tell us on Friday, “It is not that thing you did, but that thing which you left undone.”
16.       Do you know what God needs? Faith like a grain of the mustard seed exercised in the Word of God. That is all He needs. He did not say like the size of this building. Mustard seed. The tiniest seed.
17.       Is it not a shameful thing that a man could live a life without having a grain of Faith? A grain of Faith like that of ordinary sand, he does not have it. Which means that he does not have a part in the life that Christ gives. He is not perching anywhere.
18.       ...THE MOMENT MY HEART IS RIGHT, [1] MY WAYS MUST BE RIGHT,[2] MY THOUGHTS MUST BE RIGHT AND [3] MY IMAGINATIONS MUST BE RIGHT. [4] EVERYTHING I DO MUST BE RIGHT BECAUSE MY HEART IS RIGHT.
19.       And God must surely stop. He can never bypass you. You might be the vilest offender in the eyes of men. I hope I am making sense. But in the eyes of God, you are a holy fellow.
20.       SO, 2020 IS FOR THOSE THAT HAVE ACQUIRED THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD AND HAVE COME TO THE POINT WHERE THEY HAVE THE RIGHT JUDGMENT ON EVERY MATTER. Alleluia!
21.       They have the right judgment. For you to know that you are wrong. It is not about what Daddy said or what the Message said. You are wrong because you have seen that you are wrong.
22.       I am wrong but God is right.
23.       How can God be wrong and you become right? I repeat. SO, 2020 IS FOR THOSE THAT HAVE ACQUIRED THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD AND HAVE COME TO THE POINT WHERE THEY HAVE THE RIGHT JUDGMENT ON EVERY MATTER.
24.       2020! look at the people it is meant for, people that have what? The righteousness of God, and not their own self-righteousness. They have the right judgment on every matter.
25.       NOTE! Nobody can buffet them about anymore for the spirit of truth has settled in their [hearts]. 2020 New Year Message.
26.       They have driven away the spirit of error from their hearts. The spirit of falsehood has been driven away.
27.       So, this is what God wants. If that spirit of truth had been found in the whole Bride, we would have been translated. Sure!
28.       I say, if that spirit of truth had been found by God in half of the whole members of the Bride, settled in our hearts, we must have been translated by now.
29.       So, at a time like this, what is expected from us? From the time God said, IT IS MY TURN TO DIE, He now said, “Seeing the terror of God, what shall we do now.”
30.       We persuade all men to repent and turn away from ungodliness and turn to God, cling to God and lean your entire personality on God; Trust in Him, confide in Him, rely on Him, depend on Him.
31.       AS WE WAIT AT THE GATE OF PARADISE VOLUME 1, Page 9 verse 2 through 4.
32.       Today is our day. Am I making sense? Today is the day the LORD has made for this family. Shame on the devil. Shame on the devil. To them that do not know God, shame on all of them.
33.       I have explained to you what salvation is all about, and why human beings need salvation. I have given you the whole truth as I received it from God, all to get you firmly established in the Faith...
34.       So, let us ask ourselves this question. This Faith which we say we believe, are we standing firmly in that Faith? You do not need your Pastor to prove it for you. God said, “Prove for yourself.”
35.       From our daily experiences and from all that are happening around me, around you Chika, around Bro Elijoe, around any one of us, can you really say, “I am a child of God”?
36.       I told you long ago, “I am sowing a seed. I will reap the fruit thereof, for whosoever that looks after the fig tree must reap the fruit of the tree.”
37.       ...I have given you the whole truth as I received it from God, all to get you firmly established in the Faith so that you will be saved on that day when salvation shall be made complete. I can never force it on you.
38.       No! If you are saved in the end, I gain nothing. That salvation belongs to you. You are the one that will enjoy it.
39.       At the same time also, if as a result of your willful disobedience to the truth, you find yourself in hellfire, you are also the one that will suffer it there, for I [THE SON OF MAN] loose nothing. Neither do I gain anything.
40.       For that reason, THE SON OF MAN will no longer trouble Himself as to whether you are going to be saved or not. YOUR SALVATION IS NOW IN YOUR HANDS. Sure!
41.       God said long time ago that He is tired and that we are the ones withholding God’s anger. He said that He is in sympathy with His continent and with the country He came from.
42.       He is in sympathy with His continent where he came from. That is why Africa has not gotten the full weight like other continents. Nigeria has not gotten the full weight like other countries, for a man can never, because of the provocation caused him by a rat, set his house ablaze.
