FEAR GOD (EXCLUSIVE)

Bride of Christ ministry
Preached On Sunday 7th December 2014 @ THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “The supreme intelligence”

The fear of God and the keeping of His commandments are the foundations of all happiness. No man can worship God in the acceptable way without the fear of God in his heart. Without the fear of God in a man’s heart, it is impossible for any man to obey the Word of God; and no man can have the fear of God in his heart without first of all knowing the manner of God, knowing Who God is, knowing God’s character.
The problem we are having is that people do not know God. They claim they know God, but they do not know Him. If they had known God, the fear of God would have been in their hearts causing them to obey God’s Word for their own good.
Many a time, we are tempted to think that obeying God will make God to be something else more than what He is. We obey God for our own good.

God is Eternal; God is Righteous; God can never perish; God can never go to Hell. However, He has given us His way by which we can be like Him and attain imperishable height in Him. He has given us a way whereby we can avoid Hellfire, avoid eternal death, and that way is by obeying Him; but we cannot obey God until we have the fear of God in our hearts.
–The Son of Man

                                                                     FEAR GOD (1) 

To God be the glory. Today, I wish to make this tape not because you do not know the message, but because you know the message. And you have been established with the present truth.
If you are feeling asleep, pray that God will remove it from you for it is not helpful at this point in time. There is no passenger in an aeroplane that knows where he is, the station where he has arrived except the pilot.
It takes the pilot to announce to everybody whenever they cross from one zone to another. The pilot will tell you the height at which he is operating, he will tell you the distance from where you are and where the plane is likely to land. He will supply you with all the needed information.
The Deity is on the throne. The Cloud is in the camp permanent, and will remain seated until I come down.
I have to assure you that once your heart is pure, and you will believe My word, even if you leave this fellowship in Jerusalem by 9p.m, you will get home safely.
I know people that normally have problem on the way, and that problem will arise for disobeying My voice, for walking contrary even to the revealed word to them.
The revealed things belong to the children of God. Those things that are not yet revealed, they belong to God. Once a secret is made known, it is no longer a secret. It ceases to be a revelation because it has been made known.
However, as long as it is not made known, it remains a secret. Secrets are revealed, they are not interpreted. Secret things belong to God, revealed things belong to the children of God.
I am not going to reveal anything. This is the secret that has been made known to all of you all this while. And because we have not been walking in agreement to the revealed word, that is why I want to revisit it once again and even for the last time, using a new text.
This text, I am going to draw it from a place where you will like so much. I will make use of three translations, Living Bible, Amplified and King James Version.
I want to use something you know to explain something you do not know. Remember from the inception of this Faith, the Son of Man has been aiming at taking you from the known to the unknown. If I should speak what is written in the scripture, it is no longer a mystery, it is already in pure language.
If I should give you something that is unknown to you, yet it is truth, vindicated and confirmed by the Deity, why won’t you take it seriously? For that reason, I want to show you something in the book of St. Mathew chapter 10 verses 26 through 28.
Gospel according to St. Mathew chapter 10 verses 26 through 28. …Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell…”
Verse 28. “And fear not them which kill the body…”
Do not fear anybody that can only kill this human flesh (the body), because every flesh is subject to death: innocent or guilty, the flesh is subject to death, for there is no righteous man that dies not.
Innocent or guilty, you must die in the flesh. And God is saying, Jesus Christ was making this statement that you should not fear anybody who will kill only your body, your flesh and that is where his power will end. Who then must we fear?
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul…”
The person that will succeed in killing your body or My body, but he doesn’t have the power to kill My soul which is the real human being God made after His own likeness.
The other thing is ordinary image, something God moulded with dust. It was lifeless, it couldn’t see, it couldn’t speak, it was just an idol until God Himself breathe into the man’s nostril, the breath of life, and man became a living soul.
That is why, the moment that breathe of life leaves the human body, the body is certified dead. There is no other way we can know when one is dead until the person stops breathing; the being itself is no longer there.
That was why the psalmist said that once the spirit goes away, the body goes back to dust. Then the breath of life, the real man, the spirit itself goes back to the owner from where it came from.
Thus, he will report back how he lived his life on earth, whether good or bad. Thus, whether you were killed by people, burnt by fire or even died by plane crash or motor accident, it means nothing. This is the extent the person can get to.
The only person we should fear is He that is able to kill the flesh and even put the soul in hell (Everlasting Suffering). But to the person that can only destroy the flesh, he has no power to touch your real being.
That was why when the devil (Satan) obtained permission from God to tempt Job; he tormented the flesh of Job, pulled down his house, did everything, but the Lord warned him: “In your trial, in your temptation, in everything, make sure you don’t touch Job’s soul.”
He (the devil) stopped where God told him to stop. Remember that he first of all took permission from God. Why? Because he told God that all men on earth have denied God, and God told him that His servant Job cannot deny Him, for Job was faithful in all things.
The devil went and found out that it was truth. He came back and told God that it was because the Lord was with him, blessed him and secured his family, hence the essence of Job being faithful.
He said, “If you can remove all these things that you have furnished him with, so that he can be empty and allow me to go and tempt him, he must deny you before daybreak.”
God said, “Okay, I will remove all that I equipped him with, I will take away his house, take away his riches, go and tempt him but never you touch his soul.”
What is the real human being? The real human being is not this flesh. The flesh is mere maggot, dust. The real human being is that breath of life which God breathed into the nostril of the human being and the man became a living soul.
If a woman gives birth in the hospital, doctors and nurses would examine the child, and if they realize that the child is lifeless, they would tell you that the child died in the womb.
Did the child die because of his sin? Was he killed by his parents? He has died in the flesh. Thus, we must die in this flesh. Some die in the womb, while some die outside.
You see, death can come in any form. It doesn’t know whether you are righteous or a sinner, for this is a decree God passed on to all flesh.
But we are talking about this spiritual death and the torment of hellfire. For it is appointed unto men to die once, and after that, judgment follows. And this is judgment, it is going on now, that he that believeth not, is condemned already, for he has not believed in Him whom He has sent. But he that believeth has passed from death unto life. He is not condemned.
Verse 28. “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him…”
Fear what? Fear Him. The other one said, “Fear not they,” plural, but this one, there is only but a personality, one individual that has the authority, the power to kill the flesh and destroy the soul in hellfire.
He said, “But fear He, fear not they that will kill your flesh and stop there. Their power will end there. They are many, they are uncountable. But there is only but one personality, but fear Him.”
“But rather fear Him which is able to destroy…”
Which is, not which are. One person: Which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. He is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Underline it. And you must know who that person is.
For God judgeth no man, but He has committed judgment into the hand of His dear Son, for He is the Son of Man. I will tell you something as we journey along in another translation.
“Don’t be afraid of those who can kill only your bodies…”
Do not be afraid of those, they are many, plural: but can’t touch your soul! Fear only God. But do what? Fear only God. Do what? Fear only God. I want everybody to say it: Fear only God.
Fear only God! Let Him alone be your dread. Don’t fear any human being. Respect human beings, but fear God. Let God alone be your dread. If there is anything that you should be afraid of, it should be God.
That was why St. Paul said, “It is a delicate thing, a dangerous thing for one to find himself standing in the judgment of God, for God is a Consuming Fire.”
Somebody who cannot accept bribe. Somebody who is not bribe-able; you cannot influence Him to do evil. He doesn’t look at your faces. He judges you because of who you are. And He judges rightly.
And when He hands down judgment, there is no court of appeal. This is the Person you must be afraid of.
“…Don’t be afraid of those who can kill only your bodies—but can’t touch your souls! Fear only God who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” (LB).
 St. Luke chapter 12 verses 4 through 5. “And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you…”
I will forewarn you about who you must fear.
“And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, Fear Him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, fear him…”
Note it, Yea, I say unto you, fear Him! When somebody is warned the second time. Our people say that the reason for repetition is for one to understand what was earlier said. If somebody talks to you and you tell the person to repeat again, it doesn’t mean that you didn’t hear at the first time, but so that you can understand him very well.
Thus, He said, “Fear Him and yea, I say unto you, fear Him.
Verse 4 through 5 of St. Luke gospel chapter 12, living Bible. From the mouth of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. “Dear friends, don’t be afraid of those who want to murder you. They can only kill the body. They have no power over your souls. But I will tell you whom to fear. Fear God!...”
 Do what? Fear God. Say it! Fear God who has the power to kill and then cast into hell! Amen.

FEAR GOD (2)
My topic is titled, “FEAR GOD”. Because it is the fear of God that leads us to the obedience to His word. The fear of the impending judgment of God helps us to obey God, because we don’t want to enter into judgment with Him.
Brother Mike named his son; Fear-God, when Brother Mike does not fear God and his son doesn’t know the meaning of fear God. And Brother Mike cannot take his time as a deacon to tell the son the meaning of his name so that his life will reflect his name.
If you answer Fear-God and you are found in disobedience to God, will you be saved? Your name will not save you but what you manifest is what will save you.
Note it, My topic is Fear God. You must know why you must fear God. The two passages we read have summarized exactly what I want to say. Why? That the fear that will be in you will not be the fear of men, but the fear God.
If you are having the fear of men instead of the fear of God, you are a hypocrite. Whatever you are doing, you will be doing it so that your brothers and sisters will not speak evil of you. You are doing it so that you will win the commendation of your brethren.
Yes, you will always be following the way of the majority, doing what others are doing, saying what others are saying for fear of being misunderstood. For you must be misunderstood before people will begin to talk blah blah blah concerning you.
If you are intelligent, from now, you will no longer do anything because of the fear of men: what they will do, what they will say. Your action would be propelled by the fear of God, in the sense that you wouldn’t like to enter into judgment in the hand of God.
For if you will enter into judgment with God, who then will be your advocate? Who will be your lawyer that will come and free you out of the hand of God? It is upon this backdrop that the ancient people of old worshipped God rightly.
The fear of men produces suppression of feeling, giving the impression that you are good when you are terribly bad. Before the eyes of men, you act well so that they will praise you, commend you, but in your house, you become another devil. In your workplace, a visible devil.
Be very careful. It is better you offend men by doing the right thing, let them kill you for standing for the truth, so that you will inherit Paradise, than for you to take side with the generality of the people, at the end of the day, you win their favour and then God will condemn you.
That death you are running away from, God Himself will kill your body, kill your soul, torment both the soul and your body in hellfire. Thus, let’s be very careful from now. This topic has already introduced itself.
There is another topic I want to introduce. 1 Corinthians chapter 10 verses 1 through 11. “For we must never forget, dear brothers…”
 We must never forget, dear brothers and sisters, dear friends, fellow believers in Christ, let us not forget these truths.
“..For we must never forget, dear brothers, what happened to our people in the wilderness long ago…”
What happened to our forefathers, foremothers, people that worshipped God, the God we are worshipping. In their own exodus, in the wilderness.
“…God guided them by sending a Cloud that moved along ahead of them…”
 Who guided them? God. I want your response. If you are not responding, the devil will anoint you with sleeping spirit, before you know it, while the message is on, you will be dreaming your dreams and seeing visions.
“…For we must never forget, dear brother, what happened to our people in the wilderness long ago. God guided them by sending a Cloud that moved along ahead of them…”
Are we beneficiaries of this visitation? Why are we in this Faith? Is it because we are following Brother Odoemena or we are following the Cloud? It because we are following the Cloud. The same way they followed, the same Cloud we are following, proving that God is the same yesterday, today and forever.
If He did not mislead them, He will never mislead us. Brother Odoemena has been part of you from the day He was born. Many of you are older than Him by age, just like Moses.
Moses never went to Egypt, he was born and brought up in Egypt. He didn’t know the way from Egypt to Canaan, yet he was the chosen vessel unto God to bear His Name, to bring the people back to the land where he knew not.
He depended on God, and God provided the leadership by coming in the day in the form of Pillar of Cloud, and He was before Moses.
Moses was the one seeing the Cloud, the people were seeing Moses. Have you forgotten the beginning of this faith? He said, “How I wish, you are seeing what is standing before Me! How I wish you are seeing what I am following, what is paving the way. But unfortunately many of you cannot see”.
It is not Brother Odoemena; it is the very Elohim paving the way. After all, we are coming from one side.
People that left at the beginning, left because of their blindness, because they didn’t know that Brother Odoemena was not the One, they could not see the Elohim paving the way for us.
They know it was the Third Exodus and God was on the lead. But all of them wanted to see the Cloud. They didn’t know that it took Moses alone to see the Cloud; it took Moses alone to hear from God and tell the people. That God can only speak to the people through the mouth of Moses whom He had appointed God over them with Aaron as their prophet.
But everybody wanted to be a prophet, they wanted to be Moses, they wanted to see the Cloud, they wanted to see everything. How many gods will be operating in that camp? Not minding, some people were privileged to see the Ancient of Days coming out from a human being, preceded in front and went back to the human being.
They began to see too many things that could surprise them. From there, faith started coming up, yet rebellion remained in the hearts of men. Do not forget this fact, that our fathers were coming out from Egypt, being guided by the Pillar of Cloud—the Cloud is God’s vindication in all the ages which the devil has never impersonated and can never impersonate.
Of all the signs, miracles, wonders, Jesus Christ warned the wards, His followers to be warry of, according to St. Matthew gospel chapter 24, the Pillar of Cloud was not there.
For the devil has never impersonated the Pillar of Cloud, the Pillar of light, The Rainbow by day and by night. They are not the attributes of the devil. The Thick Darkness is not the attribute of the devil, for God Himself dwelleth in the thick darkness.
“For we must never forget, dear brothers, what happened to our people in the wilderness long ago.
God guided them by sending a Cloud that moved along ahead of them; and he brought them all safely through the waters of the Red Sea. This might be called their ‘baptism’…”
 This might be called their what? Baptism.
“…Baptized both in sea and Cloud!—as followers of Moses—their commitment to him as their leader…”
 Their what? Their commitment to him. They were following Moses while Moses was following the Cloud. They were committed to Moses’ leadership.
Go back to the message titled, “Commitment”. How many are committed to the leadership of the Bridal Faith by the Son of Man? If you are committed, tell Me why and how you feel you are committed to this ministry? What is the level of your commitment to this faith that is protecting you, your family, your future? What is your commitment?
Instead of being committed to the cause of the faith, many are exploiting the faith. The same way they were exploiting Moses in the wilderness demanding things Moses could not provide.
In short, they became burdens to Moses more than the burden of leadership. They imposed burden to Moses instead of helping to relieve Moses’ burdens, they were adding burden on Moses on a daily basis, feeling disgruntled that Moses was bringing them out of the land of slavery and was taking them to the land of rest.
In other words, they were not tired of staying in slavery. Hence, many of them coveted worldly things and for that they went back to Egypt, some regretted their exodus from Egypt. Some even made captains for themselves who will lead them back to Egypt because of garlic, onions, cucumber and water-melon, pineapple, apple, etc.
Tell Me what is good in green pepper, what is good in garlic, water-melon, salad? Hence, the general name for all these things is salad. If you put all these things together, it becomes salad. These were the things they desired more than their lives, and their hearts went back to Egypt.
They desired to go back. Hence, they made for themselves a new captain who will not take them forward but take them backward. But we are not numbered among such people that draw back unto perdition. We are numbered among those that march unto the saving of our souls. Bye-bye to Egypt.
Yes, the worse bed I have in My house is better than the best bed in the best hospital in the world. My batcher which I built for Myself is better preferred to the duplex I hired as a tenant. We better address this truth.
Don’t forget this fact: how God guided them even through the valley of death from that Red Sea. There can never be a sea without a valley. The moment the sea dried, what was left behind was a valley. So they marched through the valley of death.
What if the river had close in on them, they would have perished. That’s why the Psalmist said, “Even if you walk through the valley of death, God is there with you. For His hand must surely deliver you so that you will glorify His Name”.
They walked through the valley of death. Who was the One taking them through the valley of death? Almighty God, so that He will show Himself mighty in their midst, that they will believe Him the more. But instead of believing, they rebelled. Have we changed?
Verse 3. “And by a miracle God send them food to eat and water to drink there in the desert; they drank the water that Christ gave them. He was there with them as a mighty Rock of spiritual refreshment…”
 Many of us today, our survival in these days of hardship has remained a miracle. A time came when we could not even afford one square meal a day, yet we never died of starvation.
We could not even say how we were running our families miraculously. The Lord never allowed us to go begging. He was supplying our needs and we were giving Him the praise. But today, everything has dried up.
“…And by a miracle God send them food to eat and water to drink there in the desert; they drank the water that Christ gave them.
They drank the water. Who gave them that water? Christ. For He was there with them. He was there with them as a mighty Rock of spiritual refreshment…”
 As what? A mighty Rock of spiritual refreshment. Is He not here (in our midst) today? Who is refreshing you spiritually, is it not the Anointed One? Christ, the Messiah.
That you are spiritually refreshed is because of His presence in your midst as a Mighty Rock, do you know what a rock is? The stone the builders rejected, the greatest stumbling block is in the midst of the Bride offering you spiritual refreshment. And you can never refresh spiritually without refreshing physically.
That was why Okechukwu Nwankpa even said it that once you embrace Christ that your outlook must change. As your spirit changes, so your flesh will be transformed. Hence, you must become younger in outlook.
Recently, we saw some people that came to salute us in the house of the principal. He was celebrating his birthday today—53rd birthday. All that went with Me were gray haired except Me. He introduced his brother who is 60 this year with gray hair. We watched him with gray hair.
He said that our Pastor has no gray hair. But upon examination, Pastor Dan was filled with gray hair. I said okay, I am the youngest there. But Sir, can I know your age? He said, 53. I said, “Okay I am senior to you with six years.” We began to talk everywhere; In short, we were full of appreciation for ourselves.
What am I saying? The Spiritual Rock that offers us spiritual refreshment is ever present in our midst. Otherwise, we must be like others. For you must resemble the God you worship. Is that not scripture. You will first look like the God you worship in every aspect.
When they were moving on the street, they didn’t talk. Because of the way they were behaving, the people said, “How did these people acquired this type of wisdom seeing that they are ignorant people, unlearned as they are?”
One of them said, “Don’t you know that they have been with Christ? They have been with Christ. Christ was with them in the wilderness.”
I have told you that there has never been any generation, any dispensation which Christ never appeared. Our own can never be different.
Any generation, any dispensation where Christ never revealed Himself in human form, no being will be saved in that dispensation. If Christ never appeared, it means a saviour never appeared.
“…He was there with them as a mighty Rock of spiritual refreshment. Yet, after all this most of them did not obey God…”
 After all these things, after this glaring evidences, naked manifestations of God, after their testimonies of their wondrous experiences, majority of them refused to obey God. What and what could be their reasons for not obeying God?
All these things they witnessed, have we not witnessed them in our own midst in our own day? Have we all obeyed God?
If we had obeyed God the way He wanted us to obey Him, do you think there would be a message like this at this closing hours in the history of mankind, the Son of Man coming to tell you to fear God?
Who has ever received instruction from the Son of Man wholeheartedly and implemented it without first of all engaging in an argument with the Son of Man, asking Him curious questions until Son of Man will close His mouth and ask him to go and do it that way?
Many of you that have come to Me will go home and conclude that the Son of Man gave instruction to do this and that, when I never subscribed to whatever you were doing. But I spoke to you, I told you what you should do and you were pressing on Me, giving Me reasons upon reasons until I will tell you, “Okay, go and do it.”
What you have been receiving from Me are nothing but permissive wills to meet the desires of your hearts. For you had already taken your decisions before coming to Me. That is what brings about talking while I am talking.
If you had come to consult Me for My counsel, My answer will be final. But you come pretending to receive counsel, when I give My counsel that runs contrary to what you had already decided, argument will ensue. And at the end of the day, you will end it, “Okay, no problem, relax, go and do it, finish.”
Then you will be happy: “Remain blessed! I saw Daddy, Daddy said, He has approved it”. You will not tell them the level of argument you engaged Him before He finally decided to grant you your heart’s desire.
I don’t know any brother or sister in this Faith that has ever come to Me and collected God’s perfect will from Me. You know yourselves, you know the ways you have been coming, you know matters you have been presenting, you know the voice that you have heard. Yet, we received a message that says, “Obey the first voice”. Second voice is permissive will.
Because you have decided not to obey the first voice, you want to have your way, He will grant it to you. If you tell Me what you have already done, will I tell you to go and cancel it? We will be moderating it, knowing very well that you have already erred.
Whenever you want to involve the Son of Man in anything, He said and I quote, “Pre-involve Him at the conceptual stage. Not when you had already finished implementing it, you will come and tell Him what you have done. He will simply say, ‘Thank God for that, finish.’”
Now, I want to challenge everybody. If you know at one time or the other, that you consulted the Son of Man with honest intension on a matter, He told you what to do at the first time and you obeyed it without arguing, without reasoning with Him and that instruction landed you in disappointment, show by raising your hand.
Don’t fear anybody, show by raising your hand. Then I will tell you thousands of you that came to Me asking My advice and how I advised you, you went away and did the one you had in your heart and trouble ensued, disappointment came.
Then, you begin to hear them say, “I consulted Daddy, I told Daddy’. Nobody told Daddy, nobody consulted Me, they only told Me what they had already done. Some will even do it midway before coming. Some will even come only to argue with Me which I am not prepared. Why must I argue with you over something I know that will affect you and not Me?
Must I make it a law that you must obey Me? If you like obey, if you don’t like, throw it away. But when trouble comes, the Son of Man will bear the brunt. The blame will be coming to the Son of Man as if He was drawn into the picture.
Look at many of these people that shared many experiences with Moses, with God in the wilderness, they were the real partakers of the testimonies, many of them could not obey God. Don’t look at the ancient fathers, look at yourselves.
Since God had been with us from the beginning till today, to what extent have you been able to obey God? To what extent have you obeyed the word of God that is revealed to you even concerning your own personal matters? Yet, when calamity comes, God carries the blame.
Verse 5. “Yet, after all this most of them did not obey God, and He destroyed then in the wilderness…”
 Who destroyed them? God destroyed them in the wilderness, not their enemies. There was no record that the enemies of Israel destroyed them during their exodus from Egypt, for the Lord was their shield, the Lord was their defence. There was no record of any of them that was killed by sickness or disease, for the Lord was their Healer.
Even when they got to the wilderness where there was bitter water, the Lord was the One that transformed water to become a fresh water. Their enemies didn’t kill them but their Lord destroyed them.
It was upon this backdrop that our former teacher, doctor Igwe, after preaching this message, he carried his family and ran away; saying that we have called down a masquerade we cannot worship, and He was going to destroy all of us. Courageously we stayed behind.
What is more, we know that God will not destroy us. He will only destroy those that do not take His word seriously. God can never destroy the faithful, it will never happen.
Who destroyed these people in the wilderness? God. Who brought them out from the land of Egypt? God.
Now, to be saved from the cruel hands of their enemies and be destroyed by their so-called saviour because of their impenetrable hearts, which one is better?
To allow you in Egypt to stay comfortably and to bring you out of Egypt and then destroy you because of unbelief and hard-heartedness, which one is better? One is preferable.
Was God the One that killed the people? No! Rather their impenetrable hearts destroyed them. Their rebellion killed them. That’s what the Bible said, that they were destroyed by their impenetrable heart and stiff-neckedness.
That is why stubbornness to the word of God is regarded as idolatry. Nothing hinders one from obeying the word of God more than the stubbornness in his heart, the stiff-neckedness, the hard-heartedness, the pride of life.
Some feel they will be losing something if they should condescend to obey God. For God’s instruction sometimes appears to be very simple. They believe it is something that is meant for fools who cannot reason. It is a fool that will listen to Him in what He is saying. No sensible person will listen to Him. Many of you say it even in your hearts.
Yes, and this way you call the way of foolishness, this is the way we worship God. This way you call the way of heresy, to some of you, you feel Son of Man is preaching heresy. For you feel you know the better truth, this way you call the way of heresy, the Bible said, this is the way we worship our God.
It is heresy to you because you are destined to Eternal Damnation. The word of God sounds foolish to one that is destined to destruction. When you are destined to destruction, to damnation, the word of God sounds foolish to you. It becomes a very unbearable message.
When the people heard the word of Jesus Christ, they felt they were wiser than Him, they felt this is a very unbearable, foolish and unbearable saying, who can stand to hear this nonsense? To them it was nonsense.
When Saint Paul spoke in his day, they said it was the message meant for the foolish and unreasonable. That there is no intelligent mind that can stand to listen to the heresy.
St. Paul said, “This way you call the way of foolishness, heresy, this is the way we worship our God.”
This is our own day, what are they calling your message? Is it not the same thing? Now, what are you calling this message? If it is not foolish and unreasonable, why are you not obeying? You are not obeying because one; it does not suit your desire. You are a Gentile, you are a heathen. For the Bible said that heathens believe only those things that agree with their own philosophies.
The reason why you do not obey is because your own personal philosophy is by far higher than what you are hearing. That this message is so simple to you, that it cannot save human being.
The simplicity that is in this faith is corrupting many of you. Simply accept this truth. What people calls great, God calls simple. What people call simple, God calls great.
The simplicity that was in the message of Jesus Christ made it impossible for the Pharisees to condescend to obey. If God had come with a great earthquake, thundering voices with fire everywhere, I believe everybody will lie prostrate. But when it comes in a simple way, by way of persuasion, people will call Him a weakling. Amen.

FEAR GOD (3
I want to hit something. This tape I want to make will have volume one, volume two, volume three, volume four, all titled, Fear God.
Verse 6. “From this lesson, we are warned that we must not desire evil things as they did, nor worship idols as they did…”
 We are warned never to go the way the people went. That is all. By this lesson, the lesson you must get from this passage is that all of us are strictly warned never to go the way of our forefathers who after benefiting from Christ’s bountiful blessings, they ended it not obeying Him.
They started worshipping the idols, given their allegiance to things that are no gods, for which course the anger of the Lord was kindled against them, and He destroyed all of them that were guilty of unbelief. He never spared even one.
If today, we shall fall victim of the same example of unbelief, shall we be spared? If we commit the same crime they committed and God spares us, I want to tell you, He must tender unreserved apology to those people He killed because of this sin.
For He is the same yesterday, today and forever, and He judges all flesh by one standard. Is that not the scripture?
The Almighty God we have doesn’t have double standard. He judges every flesh by one standard. This is where I decree anybody outside this Faith lost.
God cannot judge Roman Catholic with Roman Catholic doctrine. He can never judge Jehovah’s Witness with their doctrine; He will not judge any denomination. He is judging everybody with the doctrine of Christ and Christ alone.
For when you get to Paradise, there is no Roman Catholic in Paradise, no Jehovah’s Witness, no Sabbath; you will only see sons and daughters of God. There is no denomination you will find in heaven, not even one. But you will see sons and daughters of God coming from the corners of the earth.
“Who are these people?” “Those that have the reverential fear of God, obey God and honor Him, they are made acceptable unto Him.” For the scripture said, “In every nation, whosoever that feareth and honoureth the Lord, the same is made acceptable unto Him.” (Acts 10:38)
If you fear and honour God, you are made acceptable unto God no matter where you are coming from. In Christ there is no tribalism, in Christ there is no Roman, there is no Jew, there is no Muslim, there is no Christian. In Christ, we are one.
Many will be disappointed on that day when they will come with their various religious believes, only for them to be proved on the plumb line and they will be found wanting. God has a plumb line according to the book of Jeremiah. And the plumb line remains God’s word.
My duty is to espouse you to the word and then create the fear of God in you so that you can worship Him acceptably. For it is only in the Son of Man that you can be made acceptable unto God. In the Son of Man means obeying the word of the Son of Man.
When you are found in Him, obeying His doctrines, you have been made acceptably in His beloved. But if you are not found in Him, obeying His message, you are operating outside. At any point in time, you are either inside or outside.
James chapter 1 verses 22 through 25. “And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to…”
The message of Christ is meant for us to obey and not to listen to.
“And remember it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. So, don’t fool yourselves…”
Therefore, do not deceive yourselves into making us to believe that you are one of us because you are merely sitting down in this fellowship hearing His word. For God never said that hearers of the truth are saved, rather doers of the truth.
There is no place that God said that it is hearers of the word of God that are saved, or somebody that knows the truth will be saved, no, rather what He said is that it is he that lives in the truth shall be saved.
Faith cometh by hearing; hearing the word of God. When you hear the word of truth as it proceeds out of the mouth of God’s messenger in your day, and put it into practice, it is only there and then that the salvation God promised has reached you. I mean the salvation of your soul. That’s what I mean.
Remember that the people were saved, but later God came and destroyed them. This message is meant for obedience and not for hearers alone, and then merely deceiving ourselves.
“…And remember it is a message to obey, not just to listen to…”
 The message you are hearing is to obey. It is not meant only to listen to and not to put it into practice. Until we abide by it, the motive of God handling it will never be made manifest in our lives, in My life.
“…So, don’t fool yourselves. For if a person just listens and doesn’t obey…”
 When you listen and refuse to obey…
“…he is like a man looking at his face in a mirror, as soon as he walks away, he can’t see himself anymore, nor remember what he looks like.
But if anyone keeps looking steadily into God’s law for free men, he will not only remember it, but he will do what it says, and God will greatly bless him in everything he does…”
 And God must definitely bless that person in everything he does. Because he is an ardent believer. You are not a believer of the message of Christ until you have put it into practice. Prophet William Branham says, “Any message you cannot put into practice, it is a sure sign that you do not believe it.”
A message that is from Christ that you refused to put into practice, he said that you don’t believe it. St. Paul said, “Because we believe, so we preach.”
Preachers are not saved, hearers are not saved. Nobody has ever been saved by knowing the truth. Israel knew the truth, they preached the truth but obedient to the truth became difficult.
In our midst here, there is no brother or sister, even infants who does not know that what we are preaching is the truth and that is why you are coming to His Presence every day. If you have seen that we are preaching falsehood, you won’t be coming.
What is more, there is no brother or sister who cannot use this message to defeat the general superintendent of denomination, prove to your neighbours that they are in the wrong way. You know all these things. In other words, you know the truth, you are hearing the truth, then this is number one.
But the greatest problem is this; you can know this truth and still perish. Your salvation is not tied to knowing the truth. The same way knowing God is a good thing.
The devil knows God. The devil can recognize God, the devil can call the Name of God, will that save the devil? The devil can preach. Anybody can preach. Because you have known this truth, you carry it on your head, you have it in your hand, you can spread it, just like the gift from God. Gift has nothing to do with salvation.
With the gift from God, you can prophesy and it will come to pass. You can pray and the sick will be healed. In other words, you have the gift of prophecy, you have the gift of healing, you can speak in tongues, you can interpret tongues, you can do many things. These are gifts, salvation is not there.
If after doing all these things, you are found in disobedience to the revealed word of God which is able to save your soul, definitely you are going to be destroyed.
Obedience to the truth that is revealed in your day marks the confirmation of your salvation. I repeat, obedience to the truth of the gospel of your salvation, gospel of Christ that is revealed to you in your own day, is the confirmation that you, your body and your soul have been saved eternally.
God can do everything for you but can never guarantee the safety of your soul when you are living the life of disobedience. Was it not the life of disobedience that sentenced Lucifer to hell, and all that will manifest the attribute of Lucifer? Nobody is as religious as Lucifer.
Begin now to think about your life. Begin now to adduce reasons you will give as to why after having the knowledge of the truth, preaching the truth, dispensing even the spiritual gift of God to many, in the end, God will say, “Depart from Me for I do not know you. You were doing all those things with your lips, your heart was too far away from believing Me. You never live the life of obedience to the truth for one day.” And this is the condemnation, no more, no less.
Tell Me, is there any reasonable excuse why anybody cannot practice the message of Christ? And God had already decreed it that this message is meant to be obeyed and not to be heard and go away. This message is not for hearing alone: “Let us go and hear Daddy speak, let us go and hear what He will tell us today.” And He is telling you that the message He has for you is Fear God.
If you don’t have the reason why you will fear Him, fear Him because He has the authority to destroy your body and your soul in hellfire. Why? Because you have refused to obey His word from your heart, and He has made it clear to you that the secret lies in taking God at His word. At thy word oh Lord, at thy command oh Lord.
 We sing in our song that we have surrendered our whole lives to Christ and to Christ alone. That we surrendered even our intellect. We surrendered our talent: “Take My life and let it be, consecrated Lord unto thee. Take My intellect, take My wisdom, take My everything. I surrender, I surrender all. All to thee My blessed Saviour, I surrender all.”
Have we surrendered anything or are we merely singing the song because it sounds sweet in the ear? “Take My life and let it be, consecrated Lord to thee.” Has God ever taken your life for one day? Have you ever consecrated your life unto God by reverencing Him?
To fear God is to depart from evil. The fear of God helps us to do that which is right at all times, whether people are seeing us or not. We believe that the all-seeing eyes of God are near us. For there is an all seeing eyes watching you, watching Me.
 I am not afraid of anybody. I am not afraid of Brother Anayo or Brother Ifeanyi. But I am afraid of God. I don’t want to find Myself as an enemy in the hand of God. I don’t want to be on the opposing side of God. For whosoever that lives the life of disobedience to God’s truth is on the opposing side.
The most naked manifestation of a woman that opposes the husband is her willful disobedience to the husband’s instruction. Her negligence to obey the husband’s words quickly and quietly without murmuring, without grumbling, without raising questions.
A woman that is fond of raising questions on anything the husband directs is constantly on the opposing side. It is a dangerous spirit, once it creeps into the life of the person, it doesn’t go out easily. Before you know it, it will be spread among the children.
Any wife that disposes herself in the form of saying “Amen” and “oh yes” to the husband has an easy ride. She does not experience any difficulty in life. Any woman that is found in obedience to the husband, she takes all that the husband possesses. The husband can even go borrowing to make sure he satisfies the needs of that humble, meek, obedient and lovely wife.
But when the wife is stubborn, pugnacious and cantankerous, always looking antagonistic and hostile; her statement, hostile, her demands, hostile, all her approaches, hostile; the man puts himself on the defensive side by turning down all her requests.
Even where he is in the position to meet them, he must claim he doesn’t have the wherewithal. Because he is waiting for the worse to come up. He wants his wife to recognize his superiority over her.
But watch one that is always good, obedient, loyal, humble, meek, lowly and loving, one that selects her words while approaching the husband, recognizing the husband as the superior partner, even when that man doesn’t have anything to offer, he will offer a warm embrace.
If he doesn’t have anything to offer, he offers a very warm embrace with a humble tone: “Darling, please for now everything is not okay. Maybe about this time tomorrow, the Lord willing, we will have as we want.” And you will hear, “Okay, no problem,” finish. Nobody will hear her.
A man and the wife, who mellows the heart of the other? It takes the woman to mellow the heart of the man because a man by nature is born with quick temper.
That is why they react rashly at times, even when noble ideas are presented very wrongly. For women are fond of that. Presenting noble ideas, good, good ideas that can enhance the good image of the family. But they present it wrongly.
How? They present it autocratically so that they will take the credit: That if not for the way they stood, the way they harassed the man, the way they did it, that the man couldn’t have done it. Little would they realize that the man is doing it because he wants to, not that he is being forced to do it.
Sometimes, the man does it so that peace will reign in the home. That is why God said, “Do not compromise your faith, lower down your integrity and your authority to enable peace to reign. If you do it, you are creating a president that is difficult to sustain. Your wife is likely to capitalize on that and form it as a routine to embarrass you from time to time. That is why you must take your stand ahead of time.”
The reason why Christ cannot compromise with the Church is because He wants us to feel the full impact of His authority over us. For to Him is given authority in heavens and on earth over all flesh. And whether we like it or not, all flesh must bow down before Him.
The same way, God confers supreme authority in the hands of the husband-man of the house, that every flesh under the roof where the man is the governor, the administrator, must bow down before him.
Every flesh in My own house whether they like it or not, must bow down before Me, reverence Me, honour Me, adore Me, exalt Me, praise My efforts whether they like it or not. That is how God ordained it.
 Once there are two voices in the home, two gods are governing that home. There can never be two voices in the Church. It must be the voice of the Bridegroom or never.
“…And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. So, don’t fool yourselves. For if a person just listens and doesn’t obey, he is like a man looking at himself in a mirror, as soon as he walks away, he can’t see himself anymore or remember what he looks like.
But if anyone keep on looking steadily in God’s laws for free men, he will not only remember it, but he will do what it says and God will greatly bless him in everything he does.”
When you carefully scrutinize the word of God, meditate on it, you will see that it contains the truth that will save your life if only you will obey. Titus one said that we are preaching God’s truth, not ordinary mere truth but truth that changes human lives if they will obey (Titus 1:2) LB.
And there is no other way you can be happy with God if not by trusting and obeying Him. So it is in the family. If a woman tells you that she can be happy without trusting the husband and obeying the husband, she is telling lies.
Every sensible woman feels worried whenever she loses affection with her husband. The moment the affection of the woman is severed from that of the husband, she feels very uncomfortable; unless she is a worldly woman who will feel happy being outside more than being happy at home. Amen.

FEAR GOD (4)
Let us go further. I am laying a foundation for the message.
Oftentimes, we have been warning and warning concerning people knowing the truth, after knowing the truth, you see them dabbling into error deliberately. Sometimes, they will feign ignorance.
They do not know that they are risking their lives, jeopardizing even their eternal destiny, which is a dangerous development. I wish to put life into these words again by way of putting you in remembrance otherwise; sin will be very light in your eyes.
Where we are now, at the point where we are watching and waiting, is the point where the devil operates most. Too many anointings rest on too many people, they begin to desire the world more than they desire the word of God. Leaders will emerge; people will be dividing themselves into groups, believing whatever that is suitable to them.
To obey God’s instruction becomes very difficult. The word of God will be sounding like music in their ears, no, it shouldn’t be so. I wish to remind you the dangers inherent in such dastardly act that are likely to put you into hellfire.
2 Peter chapter 2 verses 1 through 2. “But there were false prophets too in those days just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly tell their lies about God…”
There were false teachers in those days; there must be false teachers today who will cleverly tell you lie about God. That is exactly what I want to get from there.
Anybody that is cleverly deceiving you into disobeying the word of salvation that is coming to you in your day, is one of those false prophets that are operating among us. I do not doubt the presence of such false prophets and prophetesses.
This group of people are found among brothers and sisters who cleverly enter people’s homes, cleverly meet them in their business sites and bias their minds against the truth which they are hearing from the mouth of the Son of Man, messages they have seen God confirm in diverse ways with signs and wonders.
These false prophets and prophetesses that fly from one corner to another, oftentimes, they use their GSM handsets to call their victims, use handsets to pass across their own messages contrary to the ones they have received from God thereby bringing untold damnation both themselves and to their hearers. And too many people among us are gullible to those fables.
Sometimes, what they are hearing from those deceivers are things that suit the desires of their hearts. Some are being indoctrinated even against the wishes of their husband. Some are tutored on how to resist their husband’s words with impunity. Some are tutored on how to treat the words of their husband with disdain.
I am telling you God’s truth. The handset communication has done more harm than good. Another one is the use of television. Some even go as far as downloading information from the Internet, where they receive teachings from the Internet, they receive teachings from ungodly people, false prophets, false messiahs, false Christs, which run contrary to the truth that is evidently set out before their eyes confirmed by the Almighty God—lies that will set their hearts aflame.
Some will even watch worldly movies and think that the movies are purely natural. Instead of learning good things, they learn evil, and the message said, “Do not pay attention to anything that runs contrary to the truth you have received.”
 Whosoever that comes to you in one way or the other to bias your mind against the truth you know God Himself has confirmed, definitely wants you to perish with him. If she is a woman, she wants you to perish with her.
For God must visit every iota of disobedience of man to the truth of the gospel of Christ as it is being revealed to you in your own day for your own salvation. Just note it.
I didn’t say that they are coming from outside, I said that they are in this Faith among us. They are found among brothers and sisters; they are found among young men and young women who do not believe this truth because it doesn’t suit well with them.
They have the versions of the truth they believe. Most of them are undergraduates, some are graduates, some are youth corps members, but in all they form within the ambit of our children, notably our sons and our daughters.
At home, they give us the impression that they are angels, but in their schools, colleges and universities, they are wild dogs. I mean dastardly wild, both in behavior, in dressing, in utterance, in every aspect of human lives, they are renegades.
But at home, they are wolves in sheep clothing. They are as quiet as pussy cat, they can even rub their hairs on us, rub their tails on us, until you will be patting their back, not knowing that they are lions in sheep clothing. Events will reveal them and the Son of Man must stand to be vindicated.
I never mention your children’s name. I have also My own children, I pray for them every day that God will help Me succeed in keeping them within the boundaries of God’s love.
Thus, when you hear about this type of evil prevalent in the camp, don’t say “ehh”. Say, “God save me and my family”. For you only know yourself, but you don’t know your child.
The moment she steps out of your door, the moment he steps out of your house, whatever that he is doing, wherever that he is, you don’t know. You don’t even know the type of people he is associating with. Their brain runs faster than your own, they know your weak point; they know how to trick you. I am telling you God’s truth.
They call you mugu (somebody who doesn’t know anything). If you are wise and intelligent, if you cast your mind back during your own youthful days, then with the eyes, not ordinary eyes, but with the surreptitious look of an adult, you can catch up what is coming out of them.
The moment your children begin to seek that unnecessary independence and liberty while they should be under your strict control and administration, for they have no house of their own, you are taking care of them in every aspect, yet they are demanding undue freedom, if you are intelligent, question that freedom.
The moment a child begins to behave that way, let it be known to you that the conversation must surely change. From the conversation of your son, your daughter, one thing is clear: he or she must have come into direct contact with deceivers who are trying to change his vision about life.
What is more, before you know it, an outsider will be indoctrinating your child against his family, giving him the impression that his parents hate him. And once it registers in the heart, to erase it is very difficult.
Let it be known to you that deceivers lie in wait everywhere. And I am not afraid of the deceivers outside only, I am grossly afraid of the deceivers that are inside with us in this most holy Faith.
They can be mothers, they can be fathers, they can be anybody. Did I mention your name? There can never be any advice without any intent to fulfill. When an adult is advising a young boy, a young girl on a matter with the instruction never to disclose it to anybody even to the parents, do you believe that is a good advice? If that advice is good, borne out of pure conscience, you won’t be warning the child never to tell anybody about it.
It is like giving somebody a gift and warning the person never to tell the parents, never to tell anybody. It is never a gift. It is not an honest gift. If it is an honest gift, you don’t need to cage the person; rather you can use it to prove the child.
For a child that is still obedient to the parents, no matter who offers the person gift, he or she must tell the parents so that in return, the parents will go and salute the person.
If I want to prove a particular child now, I may deliberately dash him something secretly, but when the parents come and thank Me, then I will know that he told them and that he is a good child. But if he is a bad child, I will be expecting the parents to come and thank Me.
If I wait for them up to two weeks and nothing happens, two things are there: it is either I will say that Brother Mike and the wife are very ungrateful or that the child is a bad child. Then I can call the father and the mother and ask, “Did your child inform you about what I gave him?”
By then truth will come out. It will reveal them as either ungrateful people or as people that never knew what happened. One must be correct.
Sometimes, intelligent adults prove the loyalty of some of you youths. You are coming up in life and by offering you some help in one way or the other, expecting nothing in return, believing that you must tell your parents, and they will be expecting your parents to come back to say, “We heard this, our daughter told us, our son told us,  we are very grateful.” Amen.
But when you begin to wonder, they don’t tell anybody, don’t tell your parents, don’t do this, that gift is not an honest one. It is aimed at destroying or destabilizing either the individual or the family.
I am warning concerning these false teachers. We must be teachers of good things. False prophetesses, false prophets, some will even use their dreams.
I know one that had a dream somewhere; tells that dream to somebody with the instruction never to disclose it to anybody. Is it our doctrine? It is not our doctrine.
When the dream was read before Me, I discovered it was not a dream but the heart of the person towards that individual. More so, when the matter was already resting in My court, I know that the complainant used those words which the person claims was revealed to her in the dream. The complainant used those words before Me, word for word, went home and documented them in a write-up.
What is more, I know that the person who said he was  the dreamer, was the person that must come into contact with that person. And after sharing views together, the views now became dreams.
 I told Apostle Kelechi to tear them, that they are useless. Thus, be very careful everybody.
False dreamers, false visioners, “I saw a dream concerning you!” That is not true; don’t be afraid of such dreams. If they feel the dreams contain truth, if they feel they were inspired by God, they should be courageous to send them to Me through Apostle Kelechi. Are you noting it?
But once there is instruction that it should not be made known to anybody except that person they felt must know about it, it is because it contains no truth.
Yes, somebody might be thinking about the Son of Man, before you know it, it will turn out to be dream. Something that he heard about Me, will now turn to be dream. And because he cannot come to the pulpit, it will now be a dream.
If you have any dream, bring it to us, we will read it out. But you can have a dream, share it with somebody and tell the person never to disclose it. If it eventually comes to pass, would we clap for you that your dream comes to pass?
Once you have dream, it will come to pass immediately. That is rubbish. Amen.

FEAR GOD (5)
We go further brethren. Why we must be mindful of the words spoken to us by the prophets and the apostles.
Ephesians chapter 2 verses 19 through 22, made it very clear that the Church is built upon the foundation of apostles and prophets, Christ, being the Chief Cornerstone. And no other foundation shall any man lay, except that which is laid which is Christ.
Outside Christ, whosoever that is building anything is building it on a sinking sand, and it must surely collapse.
Christ remains the message which we preach. We don’t preach ourselves, we don’t preach any human being. We preach Christ and His salvation. Rejecting our message because it may be harsh sometimes means turning down the offer of salvation.
Christ offer of salvation reaches mankind through the preaching of the gospel of Christ as it is being committed into the hands of God’s messenger of that dispensation. Turning away from it means counting yourself unworthy of Everlasting Life.
There is no other interpretation for there is no other way you can fulfill the will of God if not believing in Him whom He has sent. And His message is not meant for hearing alone, deceiving yourselves. You must be ready to put it into practice. When we must have been instructed with the truth confirmed by God, we say “Amen” to it.
If we must turn away from it, look at what the scriptures says.
Hebrews chapter 10 verses 26 through 29.  “If anyone sins deliberately by rejecting the saviour after knowing the truth of forgiveness, this sin is not covered by Christ death...”
This is what I want to bring out. After knowing the truth about Christ, knowing the truth about the gospel of salvation that is sent to you, evidently confirmed by the presence of God in our midst, and you willfully reject Christ.
Christ means the Anointed One, The Messiah, The Saviour.
“…For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins…”
After we have received the knowledge of the truth. Is there anybody who can claim he doesn’t have that knowledge of the truth?
“For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins…”
 There remaineth no more sacrifice on that your rejection of Christ.
“…But a certain fearful looking  of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.” KJV.
(Another translation)“If anyone sins deliberately by rejecting the saviour after knowing the truth of forgiveness, this sin is not covered by Christ death.”
 Have you heard it? There are sins that are not covered by Christ death, less you begin to jump up and down thinking that Christ death is all you need, na lie. There are sins that are not covered by that death.
Your willful sin, unbelief, you have known the truth and you deliberately say no to the truth that is evidently set out before your eyes, it is not covered by the death of Christ. It is outside Christ remission of sin.
Like I told some people that came to Me last Sunday from Opi, some of them from Nsukka, making a hell of noise. I reminded them the voice that spoke to them in 1997.
God told Nsukka on the day of confirmation, that they cannot worship this God, that He knew Nsukka very well, that this God is greater than Nsukka.
Nsukka cannot worship any God that is not artificial. How many were there at Nsukka on that day of confirmation? How many heard it? Very lovely. Some hands are still up.
I won’t talk about Opi because they are not here. Will they say they do not know the truth? They know the truth. But after knowing the truth, what do they do? They crucified Christ the second time.
“…If anyone sins deliberately by rejecting the saviour after knowing the truth of forgiveness, this sin is not covered by Christ death. There is no way to get rid of it…”
There is what? There is no way to get rid of it. There is what? No way to get rid of it. There is what? No way to get rid of it.
Why? The person deliberately decided to have his way, he purposely did it. He knows what he did. He planned it very well.
Any plan done to kill somebody is never done in one day. Any deliberate sin is not covered by Christ blood. That he died on the cross of Calvary, it does not concern it.
Will anybody say that he does not know when he is disobeying the voice of the Son of Man? Will you say that God has not proved to you that He that is talking to you is the Resurrected Body?
Who doesn’t know that I am the Resurrected Body? Who doesn’t know that I am standing in the state of the Almighty God? Who doesn’t know among you that I and the Father are one?
Who doesn’t know that in Me dwelleth the fullness of the God-head bodily? Even heathens know, people you call unbelievers know. How many thousands of people visited your websites, all acknowledging everything to be truth from God?
Then, after knowing all these things, revealed word, everything, you still have the audacity to act the way you want, fragrant disobedience to God’s word. Deliberate disobedient to the truth is not covered by the death of Christ.
Let no false prophet or false preacher ever come to tell you another thing contrary to this revealed truth.
Remember the topic is “FEAR GOD”. The fear of God leads to total obedient to the truth.
Verse 27. “There will be nothing to look forward to but the terrible punishment of God’s awful anger.”
 There is nothing the person would be looking forward to receiving but a fearful awful punishment of God’s anger. That is what the person is waiting for. If he is in our midst here seating down, see what you are waiting for.
Others are waiting for their translation of their mortal bodies; you are waiting for the awful punishment of God. These two categories of people are waiting for these things in our midst.
The Cloud is in the camp! He will never permit Me after bringing you thus far to come and deceive you. Will God ever do that? Instead of permitting Me to deceive you, He will take me away.
He has used Me to announce His fame throughout the whole world, and the entire world of the elect of God have believed that He has sent Me, that I bear His Name. And you want Me to believe that at this point in time, God will now permit Me to deceive you, when I never deceive you from the beginning.
What would I be gaining if I should deceive you? What will you be offering Me which you have not offered Me from the beginning till now to bribe My conscience? Absolutely nothing. It is too late.
Fear God! If you are numbered among this group that has crossed the divide, you are waiting for the impending wrath of God.
If you are on your way to committing this type of heinous crime against the body of Christ, against God, against yourself, refrain from it now, now. Redress your steps immediately. I say, retract. I say what?
Retract immediately, don’t waste time. If the devil has been trying to tempt your heart away from this awesome truth, I say, redress your steps.
As I thought on my ways, I ran back to Him. If you have crossed, I don’t know what to tell you than to say well, to God be the glory. Whatever you see, take. If you have not crossed, but you are being tempted to cross, turn back.
If there is nothing tempting you to ever lift up your head here against the truth, feel free and remain steadfast, immovable, unshakeable. Can God bypass His word, more so, when it is being confirmed by the Son of Man? The Cloud is in the camp.
“…There will be nothing to look forward to but the terrible punishment of God’s awful anger which will consume all His enemies.
A man who refused to obey the laws given by Moses was killed without mercy, if there were two or three witnesses to his sin. Think how much more terrible…”
Think how much more terrible.
“…Think how much more terrible punishment will be for those who have trampled underfoot…”
Those that have trampled underfoot this glorious gospel of Christ.
“…Think how much more terrible punishment will be for those who have trampled underfoot the Son of God and treated his cleansing blood as though it was common and unhallowed, and insulted and outraged the holy spirit who brings God’s mercy to his people. LB.
As I thought on my ways. To love God is to depart from evil, to fear God is to obey His word.
The book of Hebrew chapter 6 verses 4 through 8. “There is no use trying to bring you back to the Lord again…”
There is no use trying to bring you that has fallen away from the faith, by rejecting the truth of the gospel of Christ. There is no use attempting to bring you back again.
Because people thought it is a light thing to deliberately stray away from the truth they have whole-heartedly acknowledged to be truth as it is being confirmed by the Almighty bearing witness to the truth.
He said, “There is no need for anybody to attempt bringing you back to the faith.”
“There is no use trying to bring you back to the Lord again, if you have once understood the Good News...”
 If you have once understood the good news.
“…And tasted for yourself the good things of heaven…”
And you tasted for yourself the good news of heaven.
“…And shared in the Holy Spirit…”
 You shared what? In the Holy Spirit.
“…And know how good the word of God is, and felt the mighty powers of the world to come, and then have turned against God…”
 And then you have turned against God like Nsukka and Opi and some of you that are sitting down in the fellowship of the saints, even hearing your condemnation, hearing judgment being passed on them. And some that are afar off who will hear this voice through their soft copies and print form that is yet to come.
You cannot bring yourself to repent again if you have nailed the Son of God to the cross again by rejecting him…”
To repent will be extremely impossible, seeing that you have crucified Christ (The word of God) the second time.
“…You cannot bring yourself to repent again if you have nailed the Son of God to the cross again by rejecting him, holding him up to mocking and to public shame. LB.
Holding Him to mockery and public shame. Glory be to God.
Jude 1 verses 5 through 6. I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.”
I will like to put you in remembrance of this truth. How the Lord Himself having saved His own people out of the land of Egypt, afterwards destroyed those that believed not, those that manifested unbelief. The Lord could not accommodate them.
As I thought on my ways, the destructive ways I am heading to by listening to the devil’s suggestions in my heart, by attempting to be the governor general of the world, controlling the world riches, not knowing that there is going to be a serious price to pay.
“…I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. And the angels which kept not their first estate…,
And angels that could not keep, sustain, retain their first estate. And the angels which kept not their first estate but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains. Who reserved them in everlasting chains?
Whatever God does is everlasting, nothing can be added, and nothing can be subtracted. For He is the Everlasting God and does everlasting things.
“…And the angels which kept not their first estate but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. KJV.
“…My answer to them is. Remember this fact which you know already…”
 Remember this fact which you know already.
“…That the Lord saved a whole nation of people out of the land of Egypt and then killed every one of them who did not trust and obey him…”
He did what?
“…Killed every one of them who could not trust and obey him. And I remind you of those angels who were once pure…”
Mindful of those ministers of the same gospel of Christ. For God has made His ministers ministering spirits, angels are human beings. They are messengers that bring good tidings. Is it not scriptural?
Those that could not retain their former estate, who fell away for reasons best known to them, the Lord Himself chained them. Used everlasting chain to chain them waiting for the day He is going to torment them in the Everlasting Hellfire. They are still alive, while some are dead.
You might be in this fellowship yet you are one of them. You might be outside. Begin to re-examine yourselves in the light of the doctrines you have received, you have been teaching.
Verse 6. “And I remind you of those angels who were once pure and holy, but turned to a life of sin.
Now, God has them chained up in prisons of darkness, waiting for the judgment day. And don’t forget the city of Sodom and Gomorrah and their neigbouring towns, all full of lust of every kind including lust of men for other men.
Those cities were destroyed by fire and continue to be a warning to us. And continue to be what? A warning to us. That there is a hell in which sinners are punished. LB.
They serve as a warning to us, that there is what? A hell in which sinners are going to be punished. If God said there is hell, who will say hell does not exist?
If God said that sinners will be punished, who is that heretic teacher that will come tomorrow to tell you that whatever you are doing, you will go scot-free. There is hell, there is heaven. There is God, there is devil.
Evildoers are everywhere, there are also good people. People that fear and honour the Lord. But they are in the minority. Evildoers are everywhere and they flood themselves in the Churches. This one is not insulated from it.
There are too many evildoers in our midst, there are spies in our midst, there is no type of person that is not found in this Bridal Faith.
Thus, don’t ever go about bragging saying that you have arrived. Criminals are of greater majority in our midst.
Do they know the truth? Yes! Do they preach it? Yes. But watch where they are going to end it. The eternal destiny of all unbelievers is hell. Nothing can change it.
I have been avoiding this message; lest many will begin to obey God because of fear of hell. And I kept it secret.
Though I visited the message from hell, I never wanted to highlight it. I knew I must approach it from the angle of that particular activity, the only activity that will take people to hellfire; that is, rejecting the truth that is evidently set out before your eyes, confirmed by the Almighty God witnessed by angels; so that you will be left without any excuse, for both the visible and invisible qualities of God have been made manifest.
Tell Me the excuse you are going to give, tell Me the person you will blame as being responsible for your trouble in the end? The scripture said that in this last days, too many false teachers and deceivers will appear deceiving themselves, deceiving others. They will deceive many, they will also deceive themselves.
They appear in the form of men and women, youths. That is why God warned us to be very careful about the glamour of iniquity, for nothing deceives the heart more than iniquity.
Sin is pleasure to any man that is destitute of truth. Sin is unbelief to the word of God. Hearing the word of God just for hearing sake. He that will after hearing the word of God, feels angry and provocative, even desiring to fight, did he believe it? Is he among what we are doing? He rejected it.
 The Bible said in Acts of the Apostles, that those that gladly received the word of God were saved. The way you receive the word of God determines the way you will put it into practice. If you receive it grudgingly, grudgingly also you will be obeying: “I think the Son of Man said that this is what we will be doing, let us do it, and let me see whether there will be peace.”
Some will not even call Him Son of Man. They will call Him, “Minister, I think you people said that your faith said that it must be this way, let us do it and see whether we will have peace. They are all in this Faith.
There is no category of person that I mentioned that is not in this Faith. Amen.

FEAR GOD (6)
Second Peter chapter 2 verses 4 through 6. “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell…”
Note! If God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell!
“…For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds ;)
The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: KJV.
“For God did not even spare the angels who sinned. But threw them into hell, chained in gloomy caves and darkness until the judgment day.
And he did not spare any of the people who lived in ancient times but before the flood except Noah the one man who spoke up for God and his family of seven. At that time, God completely destroyed the whole world of ungodly men with the vast flood.
Later, he turned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into heaps of ashes and blotted them off the face of the earth, making them an example for all the ungodly in the future to look back upon and fear.
But at the same time, the Lord rescued Lot out of Sodom because he was a good man, sick of the terrible wickedness he saw everywhere around him day after day. So, also the Lord can rescue you and me from the temptations that surround us, and continue to punish the ungodly until the day of final judgment comes. LB.
Verse 20-22. “And when a person has escape from the wicked ways of the world by learning about our Lord saviour Jesus Christ, and then gets tangled up with sin and becomes its slave again, he is worse off than he was before.
It would be better if he had never known about Christ at all than to learn of him and afterwards turn his back on the holy commandments that were given to him.
There is an old saying that “A dog comes back to what he has vomited, and a pig is washed only to come back and wallow in the mud again.” That is the way it is with those who turn again to their sin. LB.
Their hearts will be hardened, seared with a hot iron. Now, we go further. Look at this man whose sin appeared in the Old Testament was revisited in the New Testament.
Jude 1 verse 11. “Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Kora.” KJV.
Woe upon them! For they follow the example of Cain who killed his brother, and like Balaam, they will do anything for money; they will do what? Anything for money; and like Korah, they have disobeyed God and will die under his curse. LB.
Like Korah, they have also disobeyed God. This is the picture of Opi and Nsukka her daughter. They can kidnap themselves for money.
They can kidnap their fellow brethren for money; they can betray the faith for money. They can join hands with blasphemers of the faith for money. And yet money will be there when they will die.
Money was here before they came, money will remain they go. To have Balaam’s spirit or Korah’s spirit is very delicate.
Brother Ben Okezue, take note. This is your greatest problem. If you can fight this spirit and overcome it, you can see yourself in Paradise. If I don’t love you, I won’t be telling you this. Your desire for money reacheth unto the Clouds.
Let us be very careful everybody. This sin was committed in the Old Testament, and the experience lingered until the Holy Spirit inspired the New Testament to bring it forward. And it is a warning to all of us. Real warning!
Onyema Isaac, I hope you have heard it? This people can do every imaginable and unimaginable thing for the sake of making money anyhow. If it means selling the Son of Man for thirty naira, they will sell the Son of Man.
They can sell their children, sell their wife, sell everything, sell their consciences because of money. This people are spots in our feast of love, feast of charity.
“Woe upon them! For they follow the example of Cain who killed his brother, and like Balaam, they will do anything for money; and like Korah, they have disobeyed God and will die under his curse.”
Revelation chapter 2 verses 14 through 15. “And yet I have a few things against you. You tolerate some among you who do as Balaam did...”
You see what God had against that local Church? They tolerate some people in their midst that possess the spirit of Balaam. People that can sell their consciences to make money.
People that can sell their fellow Israelites to their enemies to make money. People that can volunteer for the sake of money to place a curse on the people God had already blest. All, to make money.
They are ready to mortgage their families for the sake of money. Look at where the evils were committed in numbers; Old Testament. Revisited throughout the New Testament.
A spirit that doesn’t die. And any Church, any local assembly that is harbouring people that have this spirits can never remain in the love of God. For this people are regarded as spots in our feast of love.
How can you say we have feast of love, a brother will plan and kidnap his brother? Plan and steal the property belonging to a brother and this and that. And then sell the faith to the heathens, come here and say remain blest, dance more than everybody. You can now do anything because of money.
When it gets to that stage, visiting will be the talk of the day:  “I have an uncle in Port-Harcourt, I have an Uncle in Warri, I have a friend in Kaduna.” “My goods landed at Lagos which my brother bought from Dubai.” Onyema, take note.
Once it gets to money, you will prefer your carnal brothers. Balaam’s spirit. Too many Balaams in our midst! The Cloud is in the camp.
I can never handle the truth in the way of teaching without the Cloud staying in your midst vindicating that I am representing His interest, that I am showing you awful implications before the fire falls; so that you will know your destiny.
On that day, nobody will call the Son of Man a wicked man. For He will reward you according to your deeds, finish.
“And yet I have a few things against you. You tolerate some among you who do as Balaam did when he taught Balak how to ruin the people of Israel by involving them in sexual sin and encouraging them to go to idol feasts. You have some of these very set of followers among you.
You know the sin of Balaam. He was the one that introduced ecumenical gathering among the people of God, by uniting Israel with Moab. And the people of Israel went after heathen women, sleeping with them and having some as wives. The anger of the Lord was kindled against them.
If you have not separated from the heathens, definitely you must become a victim. For God’s word calls for total separation from unbelief. You must have your limitations.
But when it comes to making money, brethren can hardly have limitations. The whole world as an opportunity to make money around now belongs to them, as if money is the end of everything. No, go back to the message!
Hebrews chapter 12 verses 16 through 17. “Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears. KJV.
“Watch out that no one becomes involved in sexual sin or becomes careless about God as Esau did…”
Have it at the back of your mind that God said, “Let there be nobody that will be a fornicator like Esau who because of a morsel of bread sold his birthright.
That action there, the Lord regarded it as fornication. Because of bread, because of money, because of food, he sold his birthright. He sold his faith
“Watch out that no one becomes involved in sexual sin or becomes careless about God as Esau did. He traded his right as the oldest son for a single meal.
And afterwards, when he wanted those rights back again, it was too late, even though he wept bitter tears of repentance.”
St. Mathew gospel chapter 12 verses 31 through 32. I am reading it because if I should dictate them to you, when you get home, you cannot open your scriptures.
“Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. KJV.
“Even blasphemy against me or any other sin can be forgiven—all except one. Speaking against the Holy Spirit shall never be forgiven, either in this world or in the world to come. LB.
St. Luke 12 verse 10. Yet those who speak against me may be forgiven while those who speak against the Holy Spirit shall never be forgiven. LB.
2 Corinthians chapter 4 verses 1 through 5. It is God himself in his mercy who has given us this wonderful work of telling his Good News to others, and so we never give up. We do not try to trick people into believing we are what we are not for we are not interested in fooling anyone. LB.
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty.
We have done what? Renounced the hidden things of dishonesty.
“…Not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. KJV.
2 Corinthians chapter 6 verses 1 through 10. We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; Behold, now is the accepted time
Behold, now is the day of salvation. Giving no offence in anything, that the ministry be not blamed…”
Giving no offence in anything, that the ministry be not blamed, this is the much I will tell you today.
Next time, we shall continue from where we stopped. To God be the glory.
