THE POTTER AND THE CLAY


THE SON OF MAN
PREACHED  ON TUESDAY 1ST APRIL, 2020 AT BRIDAL LODGE, NSUGBE DURING FAMILY ALTAR BY APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN The Righteous Judge


GO TO THE MESSAGE TITLED, WHO IS YOUR COUNSELOR? AND WHO HAS BEEN YOUR COUNSELOR ALL THESE YEARS? IT COULD BE YOUR MOTHER. IT COULD BE YOUR FATHER. IT COULD BE YOUR COLLEAGUE IN THE OFFICE. IT COULD BE ANYBODY. BUT THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT, AS LONG AS GOD IS NOT YOUR COUNSELOR, THE DEVIL IS YOUR COUNSELOR. TRUE OR FALSE? CHECK YOUR LIFE VERY
WELL. CHECK WHAT HAS BEEN MISLEADING YOU. IF GOD IS NOT YOUR COUNSELOR, THE DEVIL IS YOUR COUNSELOR.  GOD CANNOT ADVISE YOU TO GO INTO ERROR, NEITHER WILL HE LEAD YOU TO A PATH THAT WILL DESTROY YOUR LIFE. CAN GOD DO THAT?


TO WHAT EXTENT HAS GOD BEEN YOUR COUNSELLOR PREACHED ON 19THFeb. 2020; PG. 23:13-16

1
WHERE DO YOU BELONG?

Be seated. Let Me believe that we are still complete spiritually as a family. I say, as a family.
2.           If we roll into the month of April, full of sound health, complete in physical number, but we discover that there are some that never rolled into this month spiritually, it then means we lost them. I hope you are hearing Me loud and clear?
3.           What God is counting is not the head number of the family that does not possess the spirit of God. We can fill this house as a family, but if God looks down on us and He discovers that only one person possesses His spirit, that is the only person that is alive in the sight of God. That is the only person that has rolled into the month of April.
4.           It is the manner of man to count the living among the dead. To count both the living and the dead together. We are not having demography of our family. We are not doing headcount like the world does it. God does not do His own that way.
5.           Anybody God is not pleased with is completely excluded from the number of people that belong to God. Do you believe it to be truth? Whoever that is walking contrary to the truth as revealed by God, he is in opposition to God’s Word. He is not being controlled by the Word of God. Is the person God’s property? That person is not God’s property.
6.           So, that is the reason why we should not be counting on the number of human beings that gather, but we should be counting on the number of spiritual human beings. Those that have tied their own lives and their existence to that of God.
7.           Those who, by revelation, have discovered they cannot live, they cannot move about, they cannot do anything without God and they placed God first in their lives, placed Him above every other thing.
8.           Their daily desires center on one thing; “WHAT SHALL I DO” Just like today is the 1st April, “What shall I do, that I may remain, if you have been, an object of praise in the sight of God?”
9.           That is why you must be sanctified before you retain your sanctified estate. You must be salvaged before you can retain or sustain your salvation.
10.       What you will protect, is it not what you have? Will you protect what you do not have? This is why this issue of possessing the spirit of God is not a miracle and it is not a magic.
11.       The clear interpretation is this: “IS MY LIFE BEING CONTROLLED, RULED, ADMINISTERED BY THE WORD OF GOD THAT IS REVEALED TO ME OR AM I NUMBERED AMONG THOSE THAT SET THE WORD ASIDE AND BEHAVE THE WAY I WANT? WHERE DO I BELONG TO?”
12.       If you belong to those that normally set the Word of God aside, and act the way you want, the truth is this, you are in opposition.
13.       Something you have not accepted, received, and you have not taken into your heart, can it control you? It cannot control you.
14.       Hearing the Word, understanding the Word cannot control us. You can hear. You can understand, without believing. Is it not true?
15.       Until you have taken it in the same way you take your daily food, the power in the Word cannot be made manifest in your life.
16.       GOD’S POWER OF TRANSFORMATION IS VESTED IN HIS WORD. Why do we eat? We eat to stay alive, but there are some who are alive only to eat. Is it a good way of life?
17.        Am I alive in this world only to eat and to drink? Is that why I am alive? A person who is wise and understanding eats to stay alive. He did not come to this world to eat. We are not alive to eat, to drink, and to gratify the flesh.
18.       What am I saying? We take in the Word of God as food for man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that comes out of the mouth of God.
19.       If you take in the Word of God as your necessary food, the same way you take the natural food to enable you get enough strength to live, so you take the Word of God to get spiritual strength which will enable you to live right with God. Am I making sense?
20.       There is no way you can get the desired spiritual strength for daily use if you refuse to take the Word of God into your heart on daily basis.
21.       That is why the Psalmist said, “Thy Word have I hid in my heart that I will not sin against you.”[Psalms 119:11]
22.       When the Word is not in the heart, there is no way that heart can be revived. There is no way that heart can avoid evil because there is nothing in that heart that will check your behavior.
23.       The Word of God in the heart of man is the policeman that is assigned to the individual that polices the individual and restrains you from evil.
24.       But when evil is your habit continually, and you see yourself manifesting negative attitudes towards the truth continually, it then means there is nothing in you restraining you from evil.
25.       What is responsible for that? You are hearing the Word, you understand the Word, yet you set it aside saying, “I want to live the way I want. I do not want any restriction. I do not want people restraining me from what I want to do. Allow me to live my life the way I want. After all, I have the right to live.”
26.       Do you not know that some people say such a thing in their hearts? Whatever you say in your heart reflects in your character for your character tells us exactly your stand with the Word of God.
27.       My daily character will tell you exactly what is giving me sleepless nights whether it be good or evil. True or false?
28.       So, that is why you cannot hide yourself from God, but you can hide from any human being. The thoughts of your heart reflect in your daily character.
29.       IF YOU TAKE THE WORD OF GOD SERIOUS, TAKE IT AS A NECESSARY FOOD EVERY DAY, TRULY SPEAKING, EVERYTHING PERTAINING TO GOD WILL BE YOUR DELIGHT. YOUR DELIGHT WILL BE TO LIVE RIGHT, TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND WITH ONE ANOTHER.
30.       Nobody will police you about. Nobody will remind you of the right thing to do at the right time because already, you are in the process, and you are a part of it.  So, there is no need putting you in remembrance. I hope I am making sense?

SOMETIMES, A FOOL FULL OF HIMSELF, DISPLAYS LAUGHABLE ACTS OF SELF-JUSTIFICATION, ALL IN THE ATTEMPT TO EXONERATE HIMSELF FROM BLAME.
YOU ARE EITHER DOING THE WILL OF GOD OR YOU ARE DOING YOUR OWN WILL. ONCE YOU REFUSE TO DO WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO, PROBLEM MUST COME OUT FROM THERE. THAT IS THE ERROR. THERE IS NO GLORY IN ERROR. GLORY CAN ONLY BE FOUND WHERE A WISER COUNSEL PREVAILS. GOD IS OF THE WISER COUNSEL. HIS WAYS ARE NOT IN ERROR. YOU CANNOT BE HAPPY WHEN YOU ARE IN ERROR, UNLESS YOU ARE STUPID AND FOOLISH.
DOING THE WILL OF GOD PG 23:3-7

HAS THE CLAY POWER OVER
THE  POTTER? [1]

Look at the reason why many are misbehaving. Let us go to the potter’s house. Jeremiah chapter 18:1-4.Living Bible. “Here is another message to Jeremiah from the Lord…” Pay attention. The  Prophet.
2.           “Go down to the shop where clay pots and jars are made, Go to where? ...the shop where clay pots and jars are made…”Another translation.
3.           Amplified. “Arise and go down to the potter’s house…”
4.           King James Version. “Arise and go down to the potter’s house and there, I will cause thee to hear my words.” Thank you!
5.           Arise, go where? To the potter’s house. And that is what My exhortation is this morning.
The reason why we are misbehaving, and why we set the Word of God aside had already been prophesied. Scriptures are fulfilling over and over again. What God did in time past, He is reproducing, that men may fear before Him. Is it not Scripture? Thank you very much. [Ecclesiastes 3:15]
6.           So, there is no character anybody is manifesting now that is new to God. People have manifested it in time past. That is why you check what you are manifesting, for spirits do not die, but they live to possess people. Spirits live to possess people.
7.           From this experience we are going to have now, what we are going to read, check the spirit that is possessing you, and see whether you can find that spirit and then do the right thing, if you want to live.
8.           “Go down to the shop where clay pots and jars are made, and I will talk to you there. I did as he told me” LB.
9.           Amplified. “Arise and go down to the potter’s house and there, I will cause you to hear my words. Then I went down to the potter’s house, and saw that he was working at the wheel…”
10.       Do you know what a potter is? Who does not know what a potter is? One that makes clay pots.
11.       “…but the vessel that he was making from clay was spoiled by the potter’s hand; so he made it over, reworking it and making it into another pot that seemed good to him. AMP.
12.       Living Bible. “Go down to the shop where clay pots and jars are made, and I will talk to you there. I did as he told me and found the potter working at his wheel but the jar that he was forming did not turn out as he wished so he kneaded it into a lump and started again.”
13.       You know what it takes to make a pot? You use clay to make a pot. That is why we call it ‘clay pot’. Now, I want you to learn a very big lesson there. God directed His messenger to go to the potter’s house.
14.       There, God wanted to talk to him so that he would go and proclaim his experience, “THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS” to the people of God who were desiring salvation from God, and who were also desiring eternal life.
15.       God said, “Arise! Go there. Let the potter’s house be our meeting point this morning. Fix your eyes on the potter and the work he is doing with the clay.”
16.       When the prophet arrived there, the potter was busy moulding a very nice pot. At the end of the day, the one he was moulding turned out to be another thing altogether, contrary to what he had in mind. What did he do? He broke it into pieces and remoulded it to give him exactly what he wanted.
17.       First of all, he broke it into pieces. Two, he used water to soften the texture. Without making the texture soft, there is no way he could have moulded it. A potter who moulds clay pots, if he wants to mould it, will it be dry?
18.       He has finished moulding it and he looked at it. It was dried and strong, but was not what he had in mind. He used hammer to break it into pieces.
19.       What else did he do to it? He poured water on it. It melted, making it soft for it to be easy in his hands to re-mould. Do you understand where I am heading? Do you understand where I am heading?
20.       There is no way the potter can mould anything called pot without the two basic ingredients. Number one is that the clay must be there. Number two is that water must be there to soften the clay and make it shapeable, malleable. Otherwise, no way.
21.       What if the clay refused the water? Will it be softened? Will it be made to the shape God needed it? No! Good.
22.       That is why we pray, “Have Thine own way Lord. Mould me. Re-mould me. Remake me after Thy own choice. Fill me with Thy Holy Spirit and use me.”
23.       Is it not when the pot is completely moulded that it will be used to keep water? Can water be poured into the pot and it percolates when the pot had not been moulded? Very good.
24.       This is exactly where our problems emanate from. There are very stony and impenetrable hearts that are opposed to God, contrary to the reason why God made man.
25.       And God is not willing that the clay should be wasted, for what the clay turns out to be at last is contrary to the aim of the potter. What man is today, is it the aim of God creating man? God created man for man to worship Him, to reverence Him and fear God that through man, the goodness of the Lord will be seen.[Ecclesiastes 1:9]
26.       And He looked at that man, but the man was not what God had in mind. And it is not the will of God that any man should perish.[2 Peter 3:9]
27.       It is not the will of the potter that he will throw away the clay he suffered to get. What did he do? I will work on man again. I will not throw it away. See the work I will do. He poured water on it.
28.       What is that water? The Word. The Word of God penetrates and softens the stony heart, so that it can receive the truth, and that God will mould the heart to suit God’s purpose.
29.       When you watch the nature of that clay, no matter the way the potter was handling it, was the clay complaining? Did the clay make any noise or demonstrate against the potter?
30.       It is littered everywhere there. The clay did not complain, the clay did not ask, “Why did you make me this way? Why did you break me? You should have allowed me to remain as I was.”
31.       Has the clay power over the potter? Does the clay dictate to the potter what he will use the clay for? Have you seen where the problem is? That is the reason why God is regretting, after seeing some human beings [so-called] who have not fully surrendered to God.
32.       What I mean is that the clay fully surrendered to the potter holistically, and nothing was left. The potter had the authority over the clay to turn it around the way he wished.
33.       In another portion of the Scripture there in Jeremiah, it said, “It is in the power of the potter to shape the clay the way he wanted.” It is his decision to make some pots for special occasions, pots for daily use that can be broken into pieces after usage.
34.       That was why St. Paul told Timothy, that in the House of God, there are not only ornaments of gold and of silver, there are some of wood and some of clay. But whosoever that purifieth his heart; whoever that purifieth himself, the same shall be a vessel of honour in the sight of God, meet for the Master’s use. [2 Timothy 2:20 – 21]
35.       In the house of God, there are not only fine pots and plates made of gold and silver, there are also wooden pots and plates, dry pots and plates.
36.       When a wooden plate is dry, what is it fit for? Burning it in fire as firewood. There are also mere sand. What is sand? Salt that has lost its savour. When salt loses its savour, it becomes sand. It will be marched on everywhere.[Matthew 5:13]
37.       If everybody that has examined himself, repents and is converted, changes his life, changes his character, he is the one that God will honour and respect.
38.       He is the one that will be an object of pleasure in the hand of God. He is the one that God will use to work out good works. God will use the person for every good work.
39.       But the other person who sets aside the Word of God and did not use it to reform his life, who will use that person to work? It is the devil. He becomes a very powerful instrument or object in the hands of the devil for every wicked work.
40.       What is the cause? There was never a time he gave himself over. He was in the hands of the potter complaining, rebelling, and saying how he wants it.
41.       “This is how you will make me. Why are you doing this to me? Why are you doing this? Do you know I am more than this? Is it because it is like this? If you see me on the road, will you talk to me? Do you know who I am?”
42.       Ordinary clay is asking the potter, “Do you know who I am? Go and ask about me. We are the people that make things happen!” Do you not hear people saying these things? You may not say it with your mouth, but your life is saying it.
43.       For our character speaks volumes. Our character speaks more than what we utter in our mouths. Is it a lie?
44.       If you do not know that your character speaks, learn it this morning that the first message you convey to people around you is your character. Have it at the back of your mind.
45.       Chika, I hope you are taking note? You have been corrected on one error more than three times. Any other day you come, I will slap you in front of everybody.
46.       At your age, you have not known that if someone is handling an important matter, whatever you have to present must wait.
47.       You will run unguidedly to where many people are discussing a serious matter and you will start talking immediately.
48.       You did not observe the caliber of people around there, for which cause I asked you, “All these people here, are you age mates with any of them? This matter that is being discussed now, is it not important?”
49.       Every time, your mouth will be filled with apologies. Yet, you will repeat the same mistake over and over. You are telling people that you are a fool. ONE THING IS TO CONDEMN EVIL. ANOTHER IS TO ESCAPE IT. Is it a lie?
50.       Did you see what your mother did yesterday? She sold herself so cheap, even when we were at a meeting. It was such that if I did not chase her back, she had already come in.
51.       Not that she stood around the railing, to know why she was being called, or to call you and ask you, but she saw us here, with many people that filled the place to the brim.
52.       She opened the door and started walking in with her Lace and Jorge wrapper outfit, for which course I asked where she was going. I asked you what you told your mother. I wondered if you did not see how she looked.
53.       And that was why she came late, for her mates had come and gone. She was putting on a lace blouse with two wrappers of Jorge, and was trying to open the door where there were many people.
54.       I chased her away and asked the Pastor to deliver the message to her. I have not seen this type of cow. Is there a cow bigger than this? Did she see any woman in the meeting? Did she even see you or her husband in the meeting? This is the character we are talking about that speaks loud. Hear me very well. We are going somewhere.
55.       Today is April. Let us continue with that Scripture. Look at what God expects us to be in His Hand. Jeremiah 18:5. “Then the Lord said, Oh Israel, can’t I do to you as this potter has done to his clay?” This is the way God wants us to be in His Hand.
56.       Who among us was here in this world before the person was born? Who among us was here in this world before causing God to sweat when you were not yet born?
57.       When your father had not married your mother, and your mother was yet to conceive, not to talk of your being born, did you come to give God troubles? Where were you?
58.       God has made you to be a human being, but instead of making God to be joyous and to have peace with you, you are giving God headache. One that gives his parents troubles, before he was born, where was he?
59.       They suffered, gave birth to you, trained you, and then you became a headache to your parents, is it not an abomination? Is there an abomination greater than this?
60.       An Igbo adage says that a slave cannot be greater than his master. In the same way your child under your leadership cannot live a life outside your instruction. But today, human beings live their lives as if they are mightier than God. While children born to families are now beyond the control of their parents.




WE WILL NEVER BE FOUND IN TRANSGRESSION UNTIL WE BEGIN TO OPERATE ACCORDING TO THE DICTATES OF OUR OWN HEARTS DUE TO SELF-INTEREST. REMEMBER, SELF-INTEREST HAS BEEN DEFINED AS THAT WHICH A MAN WANTS FOR HIMSELF BY THE DICTATES OF HIS OWN HEART. SOMEBODY WHO WAS GIVEN A WISER COUNSEL, A BETTER PLAN THAN WHAT HE HAS PUT IN PLACE, AND YET PREFERS HIS OWN IDEA, SUCH A PERSON HAS BEEN BLINDED BY HIS OWN PERSONAL INTEREST AGAINST ANY BETTER OPTION. IT IS WHEN THAT WHICH A MAN WANTS FOR HIMSELF FAILS HIM, THAT IS WHEN REGRET WILL SET IN HIM. WHEN REGRET SETS IN A MAN, REPENTANCE WILL BE STIRRING AT HIM IN THE FACE. WHEN A MAN REPENTS, HE WILL THEN MOVE FORWARD IN TOTAL SUBMISSION TO A REJECTED WISER COUNSEL.

DOING THE WILL OF GOD PG 43:1-3

HAS THE CLAY POWER OVER THE POTTER? [2]

Then the Lord said, Oh Israel, can’t I do to you as this potter has done to his clay?”
2.             Does God not have the power to do to us as the potter does to his clay? Are we not clay in the Hand of God? Why can we not give ourselves over to God so that His will for us will be made manifest in our lives? Why can we not surrender our lives totally into the Hand of God so that His purpose for creating us will be achieved?
3.           Whoever that is opposed to the truth from God wants the purpose of creating him to be defeated. God will never realize the objective of creating you, for you are always in opposition.
4.           If you find it difficult to do the Master’s will, how can the Master use you for good works? The creature is questioning the Creator.
5.            The creature is resisting the Creator. The creature is opposing the Creator. I mean, the creature is rebelling against the Creator. The creature is disobedient to the Creator.
6.           If we can have a rethink when we hear the Word of God, I think it will help us to a large extent. We will not be among those that will say there is no God because with our eyes, we have seen God. Is it a lie?
7.           Have we not seen God with our eyes? Are we going to say that the reason we sing is because of our imagination? What we are saying is the truth. It is clear to us.
8.           We are sure and certain that there is God. And we know how He exists. We are constantly in fellowship with Him. So we are worshipping what we know, and not what we know not. We know who our Maker and Creator is.
9.           You must come to this level of revelation. Otherwise, to pattern after godliness will be impossible. Can a man pattern after godliness when he has not fully surrendered to God? Is it possible to pattern after godliness when you have not fully surrendered to Christ?
10.       It is absolutely impossible. Enough of yourself. In short, you are full of yourself. God has never taken control for one minute.
11.       “… Oh Israel, can’t I do to you as this potter has done to his clay? As the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand. Whenever I announce that a certain nation or kingdom is to be taken up and destroyed…”
12.       A certain kingdom, a certain family, a certain individual; Kingdom is made up of human beings. So do not think it is Sodom and Gomorrah. Do not think it is when Nsukka is called, or Udi, or Isuochi.
13.       You are an individual, and the Word of God is coming to you. I am an individual, and the Word of God is coming to Me.
14.       The Word of God went to Hezekiah direct from the mouth of Isaiah, “Get yourself ready. Put your house in order, for you are going to die.” Is it a lie? [Isaiah 38:1]
15.       The Word of God went to the young man hanging on the cross at the same time with the Lord Jesus and said, “Man, I say unto you, “Today[not tomorrow], you will be with me in my father’s paradise.” [Luke 23:43]
16.       He represented a nation. If I say to a nation, to a certain people, to a certain family, or to a certain individual that “You are going to die. I am going to punish you because of your wickedness, your recklessness, your impenetrable heart and stubbornness”, I will surely do it, but I will give you a condition.
17.       “Whenever I announce that a certain nation or kingdom is to be taken up and destroyed, then if that nation renounces its evil ways, I will not destroy it as I have planned”.
18.       When God wanted to destroy Nineveh, He sent Jonah to Nineveh. After proclaiming THUS SAITH THE LORD to Nineveh, both the kings, the rulers and all inhabitants of Nineveh put on sack cloth. The Bible said, “They repented in ashes”.[Jonah 3:5 – 6]
19.       And the Lord repented. The Lord changed His mind from the punishment He had already designated. Is it not scripture?[Jonah 3:10]So it is between God and individuals.
20.       Look at the man Ahab. The Bible said that Ahab was a son of God, but he was driven into error. The Lord came to punish Ahab and his family.
21.       When he [Ahab] heard from the mouth of Prophet Elijah what God said He would do to him and his family, the Bible said Ahab repented immediately with ash cloth and fell flat on the ground.
22.       And God said, “Oh, can you see Ahab? Ahab has repented. Ahab has changed his mind. It will be the height of wickedness on Me to punish Ahab seeing that he has repented. But nevertheless, after his death, all the punishments I had already programmed against his family because of their wickedness, I will unleash all. But it can never happen in the days of Ahab since he has repented”. [1 Kings 21:27 – 29]
23.       In a family, the head of the family was the only one that repented. The wife did not repent and the children did not repent.
24.       Granted that Jezebel repented and her children repented like their father, do you not think that God would have changed His mind?
25.       “Whenever I announce that a certain nation or kingdom is to be taken up and destroyed, then if that nation renounces its evil ways…”
26.       Note! If that nation... Individuals makes up that nation. Nigeria is a nation. Is Nigeria committing crime? Is the name “Nigeria” committing crime? The name “Nigeria” is an abominable name worldwide today because the inhabitants are abominable human beings.
27.       Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any nation.[Proverbs 14:34] Righteousness exalts an individual.
28.       Assuming the people of Nigeria are practicing righteousness, believing God, fearing God, honouring God, worshipping God in spirit and in truth, would our nation not be an honoured nation? Would our nation not be an exalted and cherished nation in the sight of God? But look at what is happening in our nation.
29.       Everybody is in his or her house. Even if someone is knocking at that gate, if you do not open, will the person jump over the fence? Was I the one that gave the order that was given to stay at home?
30.       I am in My own house to watch over My own house. And there is no other thing I will use to watch over you if not the Word of God, making sure I espouse all of you to the Word of salvation, to the Word of security and to the Word of life, wherein you will take your refuge at a time like this.
31.       If I should point you to any other thing outside Christ, all of you will perish.  I am giving you the remedy. If you want to escape the holocaust, God is still saying good morning to the world.
32.       To the world, we have rolled into April. You will see what will happen in the month of April. I watched the Lunar month on the sky, and it turned sideways. I said “This is a death month. A calamity month.”
33.       The people that do not know how to read signs on the air might be thanking God, saying “What a bright month.” It is not bright. It is very dull. It does not even look like April lunar month. It is very dull. Very dull.
34.       Watch it. During the olden days, the people of old; once the moon comes out, they will watch it. Listen to Me. let us go further with the Message.
35.       “Whenever I announce that a certain nation or kingdom is to be taken up and destroyed, then if that nation renounces its evil ways, I will not destroy it as I had planned.
36.       And if I announce that I will make a certain nation great and strong, but then that nation changes its mind and turns to evil…”
37.       If God proclaims good to you; If God Decrees He is going to bless you or that He is going to show you favour because you are an object of His praise; if you do not retain your sanctified estate, if you do not sustain that good in your life for which God is commending you, and you begin to do evil, because you have received commendation before.... Did you get it?
38.       That you had it before means you do not have it presently. That is why your Fellowship with God must be a habitual one. It is going to be a continuous and habitual Fellowship with God, for Job and others worshipped God habitually. Noah worshipped God continuously and habitually.[Genesis 6:9 LB]
39.       THE SAME WAY IT IS YOUR HABIT TO EAT FOOD IF YOU MUST LIVE, IT SHOULD BE YOUR HABIT TO TAKE THE WORD OF GOD SERIOUS FOR YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE, SPIRITUAL STRENGTH, AND SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING.
40.       WHOSOEVER THAT LACKS THE WORD OF GOD IN HIS HEART IS SICK. HE IS SPIRITUALLY SICK. MAYBE YOU DO NOT KNOW THAT THIS CORONA PANDEMIC IS A SPIRITUAL DISEASE. YOU DO NOT KNOW?
41.       If it is a physical disease, it would not have started from the big people. They would have been insulated from it. Do you mean to tell Me that they do not wash their hands like you?
42.       Do you mean to tell Me they do not have nose mask? Are they not those that wear protective gear from head to toe? How many of you are wearing it?
43.       It started from the ivory towers. Do you think God is not aware? Is it confusing to God? Why did it not start in the third world? Why did it not start in the jungles? Why did it start in the sanitized states? States that are already sanitized. Kingdoms that are already sanitized. Those were the places where it started.
44.       No matter how we try to sanitize ourselves in Nigeria, can we look like Americans? Can we look at the French or the Spanish? Are we up to their standard?
45.       Be calm. I am espousing you to Christ who is your security, for there is no other safe ground except in Christ. I announced it long time ago, “If Jehovah the God Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth fails to be the watchman of the house, all the watchmen are labouring in vain.” [Psalms 127:1]
46.       Can a man protect his life? In what way? The Bible said that our arms of flesh must surely fail us, by the arms of flesh has no man ever been saved.[1 Samuel 2:9, 2 Chronicles 32:8]Shall we be number one?
47.       We must run to Him by doing what He says we should do. We must allow ourselves to be clay and then allow the Almighty God to be the potter, to mould us and make us what He wants us to be; and not trying to have our ways and to dictate to God the way we want it.
48.       If the person that has been doing good turns away from good and starts doing evil, God will revoke the whole blessings He has already promised. In place of those blessings, you will be getting what? Curses! Curses will follow him. Sufferings will follow him.
49.       And if I announce that I will make a certain nation great and strong, but then that nation changes its mind and turns to evil, and refuses to obey Me…”
50.       And does what? ...refuses to obey God… Because God said He will help you or that He will do this and that for you, it is when your life is right.
51.       As long as you have started living a bad life, which is not why He called you, there is no way God will go ahead and fulfill His promise to you. He can never do it.
52.       When you are living a life of disobedience and rebelling against God, telling Him the one you want and the one you do not want. There is no way you can get it.
53.       A servant that is bigger than the master, will he be settled by his master at the end of his apprenticeship? Do you understand what I am saying?
54.       That a servant came and carried out all his duties as a servant, then his master gives him money to go and buy food for him.
55.       The master explained to the servant that they did not make money for that day, and that he should buy only rice and beans for him, for he does not want meat or fish, “Let me eat food at least.”
56.       And the servant agreed and left. He bought his master’s food and gave him. He also bought his own. No fish. No meat. And the master was watching him. He did not know that his master was once a servant too.
57.       This continued until one day, the master told him to go and buy food, and that he should bring his own. He brought the food he bought for the master. No meat. No fish.
58.       The master collected the food from him and gave him money, saying that he liked the food, that he should go and buy for himself as well, so that they would eat together. The master instructed that he should not add meat or fish.
59.       When he bought the master’s own, the master then told him to eat that of the Master while the master would eat that of the servant.
60.       The servant was shocked and said “what? This one is my own.” The master said no, that he would like to eat that one the servant bought for himself, while the servant should eat the one he bought for the master. Since there is no meat or fish in either of them, it is the same food.
61.       He kept calm. The master used spoon to turn the food twice, only to find two lumps of meat inside the servant’s food. It turned out that the servant hid meat inside the rice and put more rice and beans on top with stew.
62.       He would give his master the food without meat or fish. Then, he would also carry his own “without meat or fish” and then go to the corner to eat his own.
63.       On that fateful day, His master turned the food in his presence and screamed “This man is this your nature? So, there are two lumps of meat in your food? Is this how you eat every day?”
64.       There is a lesson to learn there. You can have one piece of meat on top with three pieces underneath saying “I only collected one piece of meat,” but the person has hidden three pieces of meat underneath.
65.       Do you think that God is not seeing you? Do you think God does not see it? “I collected only one piece of meat or fish”, while you have buried meat and fish under Ngarri and then you go to eat your own in the backyard.
66.       Then, you will open the garri and remove the meat. After all, both the garri and soup are entering your stomach. Do you know that God is seeing it? God is seeing it.
67.       That was why one that wanted to eat more than all of us collected hot moi-moi [beans pudding wrapped with leaves] and put inside his knickers and then sat down. But his legs could not touch the ground.
68.       He kept shifting uncomfortably, as the hot moi-moiwas hurting him on his scrotum. We were watching a full grown adult with tears running down his eyes while he was sitting down. We started wondering what was killing him.
69.       He was taken to a corner to find out what was wrong, and it was discovered that hot moi-moi was making him to cry.
70.       Did you get what I am saying? Ugochukwu wanted to swallow the hot meat that he was frying, he put it in his mouth to swallow, but could not. Tears were flowing from his eyes, for he could not swallow it. Yet, he could not chew it.
71.       We thought he was dying. I then asked, “My friend, what is in your mouth?” But he could not talk. Leave this matter. I know why I am talking.


AM I DESIGNATED TO HUMILIATE GOD IN MY ACTIONS OR TO CAUSE GOD TO BE HONOURED?  THIS IS A QUESTION WE HAVE TO ASK OURSELVES. What is God’s purpose for me? What is God’s purpose for you? Are you fitting into His plan? Is your own plan fitting into God’s own purpose? Or is your plan opposed to God’s own purpose? These are questions we have to answer individually. A man may make his plans, but it will take Almighty God to establish his plan, for if the Almighty God fails to establish human plans, they are useless plans. They will all end up in disaster. Hear Me very well. The Scriptures said, “Any plan that is hatched out by an evil man is evil. A plan hatched out by a good man is good.” [Matthew 12:35, Luke 6:45]
ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO GOD’S PURPOSE? PREACHED ON 30TH FEB. 2020

WARNING BEFORE DESTRUCTION

If you have a bad character and you do not change, you are hurting yourself. A SERVANT THAT WANTS TO BE GREATER THAN HIS MASTER, WHAT HE MEETS IS DISGRACE. Disgrace!
2.           This is because he will end up going back to the village. He must go back to the village to continue in his former life, for he must be taken back to the same place he was picked from. He is a pig that rejected the water that will be used to bath him.
3.           If I proclaim I will help you or that I will do this and I will do that, it is tied to a condition that you must remain faithful. You must remain loyal. And you must remain good, with a good heart.
4.           But if because, you have been fed well, and you are now a full-fledged man, and self-sufficient, you now say “As big as I am? I am bigger than this”, the spirit of disobedience now sets in, and you start living a bad life, see what the Lord said He will do.
5.           “And if I announce that I will make a certain nation great and strong,...”This nation is a human being, “...but then that nation changes its mind and turns to evil, and refuses to obey Me…”
6.           Why not put your name there? God proclaimed He will make me a strong and a great man. That is the promise of God. “We will enter paradise with smiles. We will not be like we were before. He will change our conditions.” That is, if we continue in His righteousness, doing His will.
7.           Then, if we begin to practice evil; we begin to oppose God; we begin to set the Word at naught; we begin to act as we wish, will God be obliged to continue with the covenant? He will cancel the covenant. Who cancelled it? You cancelled it.
8.           God does not break covenants. Human beings break agreements. So, I have been saying it over and over. Will I continue to bless them? God says no.
9.           “But then that nation changes its mind and turns to evil, and refuses to obey Me, then I too will change my mind.”
10.       Then I too will change my mind. Can God change His mind concerning His Word? Surely yes! So, do not tell Me that God does not change His mind concerning His Word. His Word is tied to your belief, anywhere you stop believing; you stop living right, God will cancel everything immediately.
11.       If you go to the book of Ezekiel chapter18:24, God said so, “If a righteous man begins to do evil, his righteousness will no longer be remembered. But if a wicked man turns to do good, the wickedness will no longer be remembered. He will now be known for doing good. Even if he dies, God will save the soul. God will bless him.”
12.       “I was righteous before.” That means you have lost your seat. You have lost your ticket. On the other hand, “I was wicked, but today, I am righteous”, that is what God wants to see. I was lost and now I am found.
13.       “But then that nation changes its mind and turns to evil, and refuses to obey Me, then I too will change my mind and not bless that nation as I had said I would. Therefore, go and warn all Judah and all Jerusalem…”
14.       Go and do what? Warn all Judah and all Jerusalem. WARNING BEFORE DESTRUCTION. Warning!
15.       We have been receiving all these warnings from God on how we should remodel our lives, redirect our ways to the pathway of truth. Remodel your life. Redirect your ways to the right path.
16.       “Therefore, go and warn all Judah and all Jerusalem saying “hear the warning of the Lord, I am planning evil against you now instead of good…”
17.       Have you heard it? God, who had already planned to do good to the people, is now planning to do evil; visiting the individual with evil. Is that why He called us? Did God call us to obtain his wrath?
18.       Why do we get the wrath? It is because we have rejected His Word. That is why the Bible said, God is going to punish the devil and all the nations that know not God. All the nations that know not God; every family that does not know God; all that does not give God His rightful honour and worship.
19.       [2 Thes. 1:8].
20.       Any family that does not obey God must be partakers of the wrath of God, no matter where that person is, and no matter where you might find yourself. Any family that does not reverence God, the wrath of God must befall that family and it can never go away empty handed.
21.       Why is the wrath of God coming? It is because of the disobedient fellow. And who will it befall? It is that disobedient fellow, because that soul must be visited by the wrath of God.
22.       As we are seated here, if it is one person that is involved, God knows the person and it is that person that must be visited. The rest will be free.
23.       And the moment it visits that person, whether he likes it or not, he must go down to the isolation camp. One way! No food. No shelter. Nothing. Go there and lie down. Lie on the mat. Join your mates.
24.       That is why God said that if we continue steadfastly in His Word, obeying Him, He will not visit us with the same diseases and pestilences he used to visit those that do not know God.
25.       He promised that we will hear it with the hearing of the ear, see it with the seeing of the eyes, but it can never come into our household.
26.       If you honour and fear the Lord, He will never visit you with the calamities, the diseases and pestilences. That is the promise of God.
27.       But if you begin to do evil; begin to set the Word of God at naught; set it aside and then say, “God I do not want anybody to be restraining my movement. I do not want anybody to restrain me in any form or shape. I want to live my free life. After all, I have the right to live. He who wants to go to heaven, let him go. Will I be the only one to go to hell?”, the Lord will mark you immediately.
28.       The Lord will mark you immediately. You are the evil man in the family of God. You are the evil man that is introducing ungodly life in a righteous family.
29.       Woe unto the man, woman who will introduce evil in the family of God. You are the worthless fellow in the house of God. A mean person is the one that sets the Word of God at naught because he desires to live a free life.
30.       How can you live such a free life? It is not even named among the heathens. I say, it is not even named among the heathens. Is it a good way to live to behave the way you like?
31.       “Hear the warning of the Lord; I am planning evil against you now instead of good. Turn back from your evil path and do what is right…”
32.       Turn back from your evil. Make a U-turn or even somersault if you cannot make a U-turn. Instead of rushing to hell, apply the brake automatically, somersault. Go and die on the lane of the righteous so that your corpse will be picked from the lane of the righteous. It is better you die there.
33.       That was what I was saying last night. It is better to die obeying the will of God, than to live in disobedience. It is better I die while obeying the Word of God, than to say I am alive in disobedience.
34.       He who is alive in disobedience, while he is still alive he is dead. [Mark 16:16, John 3:18, 36] It is as clear as the day. This is because wherever you are today, determines where you will land tomorrow.
35.       Whether you are going to hell or heaven, is determined when you are alive. Is it a lie? Death can never determine your destiny. Your destiny is decided while you are alive.
36.       It is just like Bro Ben who will be thrown away tomorrow. Can he query us? Is he desiring anything again? He now has little desire. We should have the desire about the things of this world as little as Bro Ben has. Does he know where his wife is? Does he know where his children are?
37.       Does he know the people that will bury him? Does he know how he will be buried? He is now face to face with the implications of the life he lived. Your works will follow you. Is it a lie?
38.       When we leave this planet earth in death, the Bible said, "Our works will follow us". ALL YOUR ACTIONS, WHILE YOU WERE ALIVE, ARE GOING WITH YOU, EITHER TO BEAR WITNESS AGAINST YOU IN CONDEMNATION OR TO BEAR WITNESS FOR YOU AND SET YOU FREE.[Rev. 14:13]
39.       "Don't waste your breath..."  Listen to the way they were talking to a prophet of God. They did not know it was God that they were talking to. The prophet [William Marrion Branham] said, “You call them prophets, but they are Gods.”
40.       Every prophet of God is God to the people. That is why once He speaks, it would happen immediately. Once He is saying it, it will be happening.
41.       God veiled Himself in a man and called Him a prophet. Whenever He wants to warn a people, He will veil Himself in a man, send that man to a people, to go and warn them. True or false?
42.       God hides Himself in a man, and then sends the man to go and warn people. That is how God warns people. When you are hearing God's Word, He is warning you and I. God can use your enemy as a tool to warn you. He can use anybody.
43.       He can use a mad man as a tool to warn you, "Go and warn them. Look at what I am planning against them. I am planning evil, and no longer good; no longer blessings."
44.       Now look at what they said to him. "Stop wasting your energy. Stop wasting your time. It is like there is no other good thing you can do. In the morning you would call us out here, wasting your breath. My friend, get away! Stop wasting your breath. Stop wasting your time and go and find something to do. Leave us alone".
45.       This is what a sinner says in his heart. WHENEVER A WICKED MAN LISTENS TO THE WORD OF GOD, IT DISCOMFORTS HIM, BECAUSE IT IS NOT WHAT HE IS EXPECTING.
46.       That is why some even say, "Tell us what we want to hear. As for this one, we do not want to hear it. Tell us what we want to hear. Tell us good things. Every time you are condemning us and telling us about the wrath of God. Every time, it is all about Judgment and the wrath of God. Hell fire! Hell fire! We have been hearing it for a long time now."
47.       Why is the whole world now hiding in their homes? What chased the whole world indoors? Why are the streets deserted all over the whole world? It is because the Lord God Almighty is about to render the whole world desolate.
48.       Sooner than you think, the entire human race; the earth will be in desolation. All the streets will be empty. Only a few will be walking on the streets, and these will be the righteousness of God. Yes! Those Christ died for, and they became the righteousness of Christ. Is it not true?
49.       A man that committed no sin was crucified for me, who is a wretched sinner, that I may become the righteousness of God. Is it not scripture? Christ died. The righteous died for the unrighteous, that we might become the righteousness of God [2 cor. 5:21]. God is about to reign and rule upon the earth with His righteous saints.
50.       The kingdom of this world is about to be the kingdom of God and His children [Rev. 11:15]. They will possess this earth. The meek will possess this earth and rule here with God.[Matthew 5:5] Righteousness is about to reign, for the earth is about to be rendered desolate.
51.       If the streets are desolate now, yet, human beings have not been exterminated; begin to see how many houses will be empty.
52.       Streets, empty. Everywhere, empty. Farmlands, empty; because the wicked is now in sheol (the place of the dead); [Genesis 37:35, 42:38, 44:31; Numbers 16:33] The wicked is now in sheol. And then children of God will heave a sigh of relief.
53.       No more work. No more death. No more pain. Nothing, nothing, nothing. Nothing to annoy you. No more provocation because all the objects of anger and provocation are now in sheol. God has sent them where they belong to, for refusing to obey the Lord. That is their portion.
54.       What you are seeing now is the beginning of woes; the thawing of an iceberg. If you bring an iceberg[that is ice block], does it melt immediately? It melts gradually. It would be melting gradually.
55.       If you bring out meat from the fridge to be defrosting and keep it, even if you pour water on it, does it melt immediately you pour water on it?
56.       You have patience with it. It would be melting one by one. A time will reach when, if you touch it, all of them will separate gradually.
57.       The Bible said, “Gradually, daily, spontaneously, it will be coming, but it shall never overstay by a single second[Habakkuk 2:3], for it shall be one day, known unto the Lord.[Zechariah 14:7] Everyday belongs to the world, but one day belongs to the Owner.
58.       God has set A DAY, in which He is going to judge the world in righteousness, by One He has given the evidence by causing Him to resurrect from the dead. It said, "BY A MAN. BY A MAN." [Acts 17:31]
59.       The warning is going on. How many are paying heed to the warning from God.


1 JOHN 3: 1 – 20. LIVING  BIBLE. SEE HOW VERY MUCH OUR HEAVENLY FATHER LOVES US, ... DO YOU KNOW HE LOVES YOU? DO YOU KNOW HE LOVES YOU? THEN WHO HATES YOU? YOU HATE YOURSELF. WHO HATES YOU? YOU HATE YOURSELF. YOU ARE THE ONE THAT IS STUBBORN TO YOURSELF. WHEN A MAN IS STUBBORN TO GOD, HE IS STUBBORN TO HIMSELF. YOU SAY THAT GOD DOES NOT EXIST; YOU MEAN YOU DO NOT EXIST. WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE CREATING A PROBLEM FOR GOD, YOU ARE CREATING A PROBLEM FOR YOURSELF. YES! THIS IS BECAUSE AN UNBELIEVER IS A BURDEN TO HIMSELF. YOU CAN NEVER BE A BURDEN TO GOD. YOU ARE A BURDEN TO YOURSELF.

JEHOVAH IS RIGHT, BUT I AND MY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WRONG ALL ALONG preached on 18th Jan. 2020; pg. 75:24-26

TOTAL INDEPENDENCE
DOES NOT EXIST

But they replied, 'don't waste your breath, we have no intention of doing whatever the Lord says'..."
Look at it. "Do not waste your time. Cease from straining your voice.
2.           Stop wasting your breath. Stop wasting your life and your strength, saying you are talking to us by telling us, God said “Enough of it”, let us tell you the truth.
3.           We have no intention to do whatever God is saying. We have no intention. Telling us to go and worship God is no longer for now."
4.           Promise, I hope you are paying attention? Good! You may not say it with your mouth, but your character may say it.
5.           If you see someone who is making efforts to worship God, you would see him struggling daily, to live right. But if you see someone who is making no effort, you would also notice that as the days go by, he will be getting worse.
6.           As the days go by, he would be devising newer things to show you that he is not yet ready and that it is not yet his will to worship God. Maybe he has not yet even believed that there is God. He has not yet believed that there is judgment.
7.           If you have not yet believed that there is God, what made all of you stop school? What made all of you to stay back at home? Why is it that anybody that is asked to go back home, he will say that the roads have been blocked? Who blocked the roads? Is there anybody wielding guns and knives?
8.           Elder Dike called Me yesterday, and was praising Me that he arrived home safely from Delta. He wanted to go back home as they [the employees] were granted leave. And on getting to the highway, the roads were blocked and they went back.
9.           After one week, their company brought a vehicle and hired mobile police escorts. Then they were carried in the company’s vehicle down to Port Harcourt, and then handed them over. That was how they successfully went home yesterday.
10.       Their company arranged it. I said to him that their company loves them so much and you are all married people with children. So if they do not go home, their children would all die off. Worry will kill them.
11.       Among all of you now, who has the money to hire mobile police to escort you home? Just like Promise now; they will have to carry you across Imo, and then into Abia.
12.       As for Chika, they would have to carry you across into Enugu, then you will enter Nsukka. Elijoe, can't you see it is now escort that you will have to use and go back home?
13.       I am asking he who says that there is no God, “Who closed those roads? What pursued all of you into your houses?” Those that called for strike, have said that there is no strike. That is ASUU. They now said that there is no strike and that they are now joining the fight against COVID-19.
14.       They are now manufacturing sanitizers, printing posters and sharing, under the aegis of ASUU, saying, “Let us sink everything about strike and face the matter before us. After all, students must be alive before they will come back to school. And we will also be alive before we teach.”
15.       Seeing what is happening, the world is confused. True or false? The whole human race is confused.
16.       There is only but One Peculiar Group that is not confused; that is following the trend. And that is the Elect of God. We watch. We are the wise people of this age, for we have seen the star, and we are following the star.
17.       Is it not true? In every age, a Star is sent to guide the people. A Star is sent to guide the people of God home in every age.
18.       If you go to the Message, JUST BE FAITHFUL: BELIEVE HIS WORD: TRUST IN THE MESSENGER GOD HAS SENT, “In every age, a Star is sent to guide the people of God home safely.”
19.       If a Star is not sent to us, we will be like others. We would have been running helter-skelter. We would not be at home.
20.       Just as my wife is sweating now. After, she will just go and do her sports. That one concerns them. Death can kill those it should kill. That one concerns them.
21.       This is because we are at home with God. God is equally at home with us. Who will believe our report? Who will believe it?
22.       Do not worry. Sooner than you think, we will be the only people that will be going out and coming in. Sooner than we think, it would happen before your eyes, and you will see it. People will be running to us, "Please if you people go out, since you are allowed to go out,buy something for us."
23.       "But they replied, 'don't waste your breath, we have no intention whatsoever of doing what God says. We will continue to live as we want to, free from any restraint, full of stubbornness and wickedness."
24.       Have you seen it? “Stop wasting your strength. We will continue to live as we have purposed in our hearts.”
25.       "Don't waste your breath..." I hope you are making your recording? Many people are saying it every day in the fellowships and in the families that parents are wasting their time, “You should stop disturbing us. Whatever that is billed to happen tomorrow should rather happen today. Is there anything the eyes will see and shed blood?'
26.       Do not worry. Your eyes will soon shed blood. I say, your eyes will soon shed blood! Yes! Your eyes will shed blood. There is nothing the eyes will see and shed blood. Right?
27.       How can somebody just stay without even one naira? You do not have garri. There is no food. You do not have a single kobo and you do not realize any money. Your wife will be there looking at you. Your children will be there looking at you too. Hunger will be the thing killing you, and no longer corona.
28.       Think of how it will be, if you go hungry for 14 days. Try it for 10 days first. Try it for even 1 week. You will see that the person will start emaciating from the buttocks.
29.       Listen to me. You know that the person who is well-fed does not know what the hungry man is passing through. This is because when it is day break, you will prepare pap. You change food. Thus, you do not know what is happening in the streets. You are still eating fish and meat.
30.       My wife was reminding me about fish yesterday. Just imagine Me now going to Ochanja because of fish. Instead of going home when I am done with the work I am doing at the post office, I will be going for fish.
31.       Do I have such time? Do I even have a reserve to go to Ochanja. It could not have worked yesterday, for there was an important work that was facing me. And I thank God I salvaged many families yesterday.
32.       A good Father does not sleep when His children are still hungry. You expect Me in that situation to come home and have rest? No No No! I slept well last night because things that were bothering My heart before last night were many. I am not like others. I am running the biggest family.
33.       "But they replied, 'don't waste your breath..." Do not waste your breath. Do not waste your time. Do not waste your breath. Why are you killing yourself for us? Stop killing yourself because of us. Leave us alone. There is nothing the eyes will see and shed blood.
34.       "...we have no intention whatsoever of doing what God says". Whatsoever! Even till eternity, we will not do it. Think of this person that is sounding very courageous. Is this matter not for you and I. are we not the people to whom the word is coming?
35.       Since you have been hearing the gospel, why has your life not changed? It is because you are among those that are saying things like this. It is a spirit.
36.       Say whatever you want to say. Nobody should call my name. If my name is not mentioned, then no message has been preached yet. Elijoe listen! You are involved. Are you hearing it? Good!
37.       "We will continue to live as we want to free from any restraint...” Can you see it? "...full of stubbornness and wickedness". Can you imagine?
38.       "Then the Lord said..." Hear the Word of the Lord to such people. Even till today, that which He said to them is what He is saying to you today.
39.       Those who heard the Word of God and said they will not change, saying that there is still time, and that when they will repent has not yet come.
40.       "Then the Lord said, even among the heathens, no one has ever heard such a thing...".Even among the heathens. I TOLD YOU PEOPLE THAT TOTAL INDEPENDENCE DOES NOT EXIST ANYWHERE. IT DOES NOT EXIST!
41.       But there are people who will say, “Do not touch me. Do not talk to me. Leave me alone”. You want total independence? Not even among the heathens.
42.       Which means, a good number of us are worse than the heathens by desiring to live that type of independent life. What a pity? This is one who calls him or herself a child of God. What then is the benefit of the Word of God to us if we happen to be in this category?
43.       "Then the Lord said, 'even among the heathens, no one has ever heard of such a thingMy people have done something too horrible to understand.
44.       Yes! It is very horrible because after all these Words you are hearing, we are wondering, why is your life remaining the same? What is disturbing this child?
45.       It is a horrible thing to understand why the water that saved others cannot save you. The Words that the others heard and shivered and it changed their lives, that is the same thing you are hearing and you are getting worse.
46.       God has told us the remedy that the time you allotted yourself to repent has not yet come, and that the person talking to you is wasting his time.
47.       This is what you are saying in your heart. "Keep on wasting your own time, and even straining your voice. Did I tell you people that I am going to Heaven? When you are going, do not call on me”.
48.       Then if that is your goal, it is better you pack your bags and leave this house because God is going to deal with you treacherously by inflicting you with something that is greater than you, such that once it comes upon you, you will be eliminated, whether you like it or not. You will see people that come here, knock at the door and whisk you away.
49.       "My people have done something too horrible to understand. The snow never melts high up on the Lebanon Mountains. The cold, flowing streams from the cracks of Mount Hermon never run dry. These can be counted on, but not my people” Not my people at all! "For they have deserted me and turned to foolish idols..." STUBBORNNESS IS IDOLATRY. STUBBORNNESS IS WICKEDNESS!
50.       "...They have turned away from the ancient highways of good..." Have you heard it?  Ancient highways of good! The Bible said, “Stop where you are, ask about the good path where your people walked [The ancient highway] and then, walk therein. You will find peace for your soul.”
51.       The people said, “We will not.” Is it a lie? Jeremiah 14. “Stop where you are, and ask questions, of where the good path is, where the ancient men walked and got peace in their lives.”
52.       And those that were told said, “Go and tell God that we will not do it. We will not do it! We will do as we wish”.
53.       You may not say it with your mouth. You may say it in your heart, and your life will be affirming it. Anything you believe, your life will show it. Is it a lie? You do not tell God that this person has the fear of God. The Igbo adage says that with the eyes, you can tell a corn that is ripe.
54.       If you see someone that has the fear of God, you will know because the fear of God will restrain him from evil. He will be totally good. I say totally good! Good testimonies will be borne about you.
55.       And not mentioning good things about you today and evil will be the report tomorrow. If you bow down to God today, tomorrow you will bow down to millionaire spirit, and then you start saying “Amen! Amen! Yes! Amen! Amen! I know I am going to be a millionaire. Amen.”
56.       He will tell you, “Bow down, let me pray for you”, and you will bow down to idol. After praying, he will now tell you that it is an idol from Osun state that you worshipped, and you will still remain here in My house.
57.       Because of money, you bow down to idol, worshipping a distant god you made for yourself in your heart. I have not yet passed judgment on that. I will still pass judgment on it. It is just so that I will be opening your eyes to be seeing what it takes to be an idolater.


OF WHAT USE IS HAVING A COUNSELOR WHOSE ADVICE YOU DO NOT NEED, AND WHOSE SERVICES YOU HAVE NO NEED OF? You might be seeing life, but you do not know that before you get to life, death is waiting. But whoever God loves, the Bible says, He withholds him, withholds the person from running to a place where he will be destroyed. The Bible called it the place of death. THE MOMENT YOU BEGIN TO SEE YOURSELF AS ONE WHO DOES NOT NEED ADVICE, YOUR PROBLEM STARTS AND IT HAS NO END.

TO WHAT EXTENT HAS GOD BEEN YOUR COUNSELOR? PREACHED  16TH FEB. 2020 PG. 42:19; 21 AND PG. 45:28

CAN A MAN STRIVE WITH
 HIS MAKER?

They have turned away from the ancient highways of good and walk the paths of sin. Therefore, their land shall become desolate.” Their land shall become what? Desolate.
2.           Is it not why the nation is becoming desolate? Is it not widespread evil that made Noah’s day desolate? Widespread evil made Sodom and Gomorrah desolate. Widespread evil made Jericho desolate. And others. Is it a lie?
3.           “Therefore, their lands shall become desolate so that all who pass by will gasp and shake their heads in amazement at its utter desolation.”
4.           “Is this how the world has turned out to be? Is this how the world is now? There is nothing left here again.”
5.           My wife and I were watching Lagos in the night, and we could not believe our eyes. Lagos is lying in desolation. We watched it in the television. That is, everybody should be going on their own. Streets empty. Who will believe it? Who chased people in Lagos into their houses? God’s judgment. God said that this is good morning.
6.           Because of all the prophecies that said that it has stopped, after now we will go to the internet to see what happened yesterday where Ebonyi state said that it has ended.
7.           Association of Clergymen prayed and celebrated it that it ended yesterday. We will see it today. They should be praying. The Bible said that the world is preparing. And God is also preparing. The world on one side. And God on one side.
8.           “I will scatter My people before their enemies as the East wind scatters dust and in all their troubles, I will turn My back on them.” These are the children of God. “I will refuse to notice their distress.”
9.           These are the people that call themselves children of God. God will not notice their distress because they were hearing the Word of God and setting it at naught. God has given them a place with the unbelievers. They now have a place among the unbelievers. Is it not abomination?
10.       “Then the people said, ‘come let’s get rid of Jeremiah, we have our own priests and wise men and prophets...” Can you imagine?
11.       “We don’t need his advice. Let’s silence him that he may speak no more against us nor bother us again." “They are now angry” Every time he is calling our names. What he wants to say is what he says. Come let us find a way to kill him."
12.       Jeremiah prayed against them asking God not to let their devises prevail and God answered Jeremiah as the only one He listens to.
13.       "Oh Lord! Help me see what they are planning to do to me. Should they repay evil for good? They have set a trap to kill me, yet I spoke well of them to you..."
14.       The people he is thinking well for are having bad thoughts for him. God is thinking good for us, but our character, our behaviour and Words of our mouth are evil.
15.       "They have set a trap to kill me, yet I spoke well of them to you and tried to defend them from your anger. Now Lord, let their children starve to death".  Let their children do what? Starve to death. Let hunger kill all their children.
16.       "And let the sword pour out their blood. Let their wives be widows and bereft and all their children. Let their men die in epidemics."
17.       Let their men die in what? Epidemics. This thing happening now, is it not epidemic? Their youth will go and die in Boko Haram. They will die in battles and wars. Then, epidemics will ravage those remaining. Things happening in the midst of those that called themselves children of God. What caused it? Disobedience to God's Words.
18.       "Let screaming be heard from their homes as troops of soldiers come suddenly upon them for they have dug a pit for me to fall in and they have hidden traps along my path.
19.       Lord, you know all their murderous plots against me. DON'T FORGIVE THEM, DON'T BLOT OUT THEIR SIN. But let them perish before you. DEAL WITH THEM IN YOUR ANGER."
20.       Anyone upon whom this kind of prayer is made, will he be happy? The only voice God listens to, look at what happened there simply because the people he was talking to did not take him seriously.
21.       Instead of taking him seriously, they were planning on how to kill him, frustrate him, telling him that he is wasting time. Let us confirm it.
22.       Job 22: 21-24. "Quit quarrelling with God". Do what? Quit quarrelling with God. When they were quarrelling with Jeremiah and striving against Jeremiah, were they not striving against the man God sent? Were they not striving against God? Was it not God they were striving against? All their machinations against Jeremiah, was it not against God?
23.       WHATEVER PLANS YOU ARE MAKING AGAINST A MAN OF GOD, YOU ARE MAKING IT AGAINST GOD. IS IT A LIE? WHEN YOU RECEIVE SOMEBODY GOD HAS SENT, YOU HAVE RECEIVED GOD WHO SENT HIM.
24.       YOU REJECT HIM, YOU HAVE REJECTED GOD. WHATEVER TREATMENT YOU ARE METING OUT TO ANYBODY SENT BY GOD, YOU ARE METING OUT THAT TREATMENT TO GOD DIRECTLY. CAN A MAN STRIVE WITH HIS MAKER AND GET AWAY WITH IT?
25.       Did you not see what these people did? They published their obituary. Is it not true? They prepared their graves. They sang their funeral oration. They buried themselves.
26.       They mourned themselves while they were alive so that you will see what God does. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. [Hebrews 13:8] He does not change.
27.       That is why in Malachi 3:6, the Scriptures say, “I am the Lord, I changeth not so the children of Jacob cannot be consumed.” The children of God can never be consumed.
28.       These things happened for example unto us, written for our learning and warning as instructions so that we will not pattern our lives that same way.
[2 Timothy 3:16]
29.       Let us not attempt to imitate walking that way. One that is hearing the Word of God and the Word makes him angry, the person demonstrates against the Word of God, you are quarrelling with God, look at what the Scriptures said.
30.       You are not the first person. It has happened before, so that you will not puff yourself up saying, "I am stubborn. Do you know who I am?" You are not the first. It has happened before. There are people that have done it before.
31.       There is no character that is in you today which has not been manifested by people before. What you will expect to know is what befell those people. What was their fate after doing it? What was their recompense? What was their reward?
32.       This is because no one can mock God and get away with it. Be not deceived; God is not mocked, you cannot scoff at God, mock God and get away with it. [Galatians 6:7]
33.       Whoever that listens to the Word of God, goes away and sets it aside is a mocker. I said he is a mocker. He is indirectly saying that God does not exist or “Whatever He wants to do, let Him do. He is God.”
34.       "Quit quarrelling with God." Quit what? Quarrelling with God. Stop quarrelling with God. "Agree with Him and you will have peace at last." Do what? Agree with Him. You will do what? Have peace at last. Then if you disagree with Him and continue to quarrel with Him, will you have peace? You will have the opposite.
35.       Do you want peace from God, which is everlasting peace? Whatever that comes from God is everlasting. It is not temporary. Greater peace have they that know the Lord, for nothing shall by any means offend them. [Luke 10:19] Is it a lie? Is it not scriptural?
36.       Now, when you go ahead opposing the Word of God, challenging God, challenging His Word; the authority of God is in the Word, for God is the Word of God.
37.       In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, the Word was God. [John 1:1 KJV] Now, the Word has been made flesh [John 1:14] and is dwelling among us [Matthew 1:23].
38.       Stop quarrelling with God. Quit! One who has wisdom will quit immediately so that he will have peace. Learn to agree with God always. Do not say, "God, agree with me." You have to agree with God. For when God speaks on a matter, it is final.
39.       Sink your opinion. Sink your ideology. Sink your principle and your proposition. Do what? Mark all bad. Why? God has spoken.
40.       If God has not spoken on any matter, anybody is free to handle it the way he wants. But when God speaks, it is full stop. Walk in agreement with God so that you will constantly have peace.
41.       "Agree with Him and you will have peace at last. His favour will surround you if you will only admit that you were wrong" What? His favour will do what? Surround you, if only you will admit that you were wrong.
42.       His favour will surround you, if you can set aside self-justification, which is the beginning of human failure. If you can get rid of self-justification, the favour of God will now surround you.
43.       But if you continue to justify yourself, "What did I do? Every time, they are talking about me. What will I do so that these people will be happy? Will I kill myself?"
44.       You have seen it. Is this person ready to repent? He has not found out where God is holding him guilty. It is because you have not discovered where God is holding you guilty. Why? You are not intelligent enough to know where He is pointing you to. Look at what God is pointing you to. Look at what He is expecting from you.
45.       What is He expecting? Be like a clay in the Hand of the Potter. Stop having your way. Stop doing your will. Begin to do the will of God. SUBMIT TO THE WILL OF GOD. Begin to say "God, have your own way."
46.       That was why the Psalmist said, "Do not permit me, O Lord to walk in my ways. Help me to prefer obedience to Your Word to making money."[Psalms 119:35 – 36 LB]Do you understand what I am saying? Chika, can you hear it?
IF MY ACTION WHICH IS PLEASING TO GOD WILL OFFEND THE WHOLE WORLD, LET ALL OF THEM BE OFFENDED.  A HOLY SPIRIT FILLED INDIVIDUAL DOES NOT TENDER APOLOGY FOR DISPLEASING EVERY FORM OF UNGODLINESS IN HIS DAY. IF GOD IS NOT PLEASED WITH ME, WHO WILL BE PLEASED WITH ME? IF GOD REJECTS ME, WHO WILL ACCEPT ME? EVERYBODY AND EVERYTHING ON EARTH IS UNRELIABLE EXCEPT GOD. LOOK INTO ANYBODY OR ANYTHING, IF GOD IS NOT THERE, DO NOT PLACE YOUR CONFIDENCE THERE. IT WILL SURELY DISAPPOINT YOU. A MAN WHO IS SURE AND CERTAIN THAT HIS CONVICTION IS FROM GOD, DOES NOT GET DISTURBED BY THE OPPOSING ATTITUDES OF THE PEOPLE AROUND HIM. HE STANDS ALONE IN HIS PURITY OF MIND AND ATTITUDE, DEFENDING AND PROTECTING HIS BELIEF.
DOING THE WILL OF GOD PG. 65:2-5


7
THY WORD HAVE I HID IN
MY HEART

His favour will surround you if only you will admit that you were wrong. Listen to His instructions and store them in your heart."
2.           Is it not the matter we have been discussing? Listen to God's instructions and do what? Store them in your heart. HAS THE WORD OF GOD A RESTING PLACE IN YOUR HEART?
3.           In the Book of Colossians chapter 3:16 where we read the other day, it said, "Make your heart the home of the Word of God. "LET GOD'S INSTRUCTIONS BE STORED IN OUR HEARTS, AND NOT IN OUR BRAINS. [Psalms 119:11]
4.           "Listen to His instructions and store them in your heart." Do not allow them to depart. "If you return to God and put right all the wrong in your home.."
5.           If you do what? ...return to God and put right all the wrong in your heart. This is because your heart is the home of the Word of God. PUT ALL THE WRONGS IN YOUR HEART RIGHT.
6.           It is another way of telling you what Colossian said in the New Testament. It said, "Strive to get rid of all that is wrong in your life and in my life. Name them one by one.
7.           If you know what is wrong in your life, get rid of all. Look at the only way we can obtain God's favour, live in God's favour, and live in His presence forever.
8.           THE REMEDY IS THERE. STOP REBELLION. QUIT QUARRELLING WITH GOD. STOP REJECTING THE TRUTH. STOP DESIRING TO HAVE YOUR WAY.
9.           STOP MOCKING GOD BY TELLING GOD THAT HE IS WASTING HIS TIME TALKING, FOR HE DOES NOT HAVE SOMETHING BETTER TO DO. STOP DEVISING EVIL DAILY CONTINUALLY.
10.       STOP CHANGING EVIL PLANS INSTEAD OF CHANGING YOUR HEART. FIGHT IT OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM, OUT OF YOUR MEMORY, YOUR BLOOD, AND OUT OF YOUR ARTERIES AND VEINS.
11.       STOP SCHEMING EVIL IN YOUR BED. YOU WILL STAY IN YOUR BED AND YOUR THOUGHTS ARE ROAMING AROUND ON HOW TO CIRCUMVENT THE WORD OF GOD;
12.       STOP RUMINATING ON DECEITFUL WAYS TO OUTSMART GOD. CAN SOMEBODY DRIBBLE GOD? CAN SOMEBODY DRIBBLE GOD? WHO ARE YOU?
13.       Can somebody circumvent the will of God? You are making an impossible mistake. I mean, you are taking an impossible road. You are attempting the impossible. Who has ever done it with success?
14.       Who has ever circumvented the will of God or the way of life and then lived. You cannot avoid the way of life as test of life. Punishment is there. It awaits you. Every disobedient fellow must meet a sudden destruction. Do you believe that?
15.       The young prophet, was he not disobedient? How did he die? Sudden death. What of Balaam? What killed Balaam?
16.       He died of willful disobedience because his heart was set to making money instead of obeying God. His heart was in making money instead of obeying the Word of God.
17.       That was why the Psalmist said, "Teach me O Lord, never to desire to have my way. Help me to desire your ways for Your ways are right. Teach me O Lord, to learn to obey you continually instead of making money." [Psalms 119:35 – 38]
18.       That was why Job the Prophet said, "O Lord, help me, teach me to understand wherein I have erred."[Job 6:24] That is a man that is willing to make his wrongs right.
19.       He said, "I will never hide the sin in my bosom like Adam who hid the sin of his bosom."[Job 31:33] What happened to him? He brought the first murder into his house. Murder case.
20.       SO WHEN YOU HIDE YOUR INIQUITY IN YOUR BOSOM, YOU WILL NOT PROSPER. IF GOD IS TEACHING YOU, SHOWING YOU WHERE YOU ERRED AND YOU ARE NOT MAKING ANY EFFORT TO CORRECT IT, YOU WILL PERISH IN YOUR INIQUITY.
21.       And your blood will not be required in the hand of God. You will languish in hell fire. Yes! This is the way out at a time like this.
22.       "If you return to God and put right all the wrong in your home..." Return to God and put right all that is wrong in your heart, which is the home of the Word of God.
23.       In your family physically, if there be any errant person in this house, I cannot accommodate that person. If I close My mouth, the Lord will smite Me.
24.       But if I speak and he does not pay attention, the Lord will smite him. Is it not true? If I speak and he does not pay heed, God will smite him.
25.       But if I see the evil in him, maybe because I do not want him to hate Me or quarrel with Me, I close My mouth, the Lord will smite Me. I am not a good watchman.
26.       So sanitize your homes. Rid your homes of evils of all sorts, beginning from your heart.
27.       "If you return to God and put right all the wrongs in your home, then you will be restored." You will be restored to God. You enjoy peace with the children of God, for greater peace have they that know God, and nothing shall by any means offend them. [Luke 10:19]
28.       For Jesus said, "My peace I leave unto you. My peace I give you. Not the type of peace the world giveth. [John 14:27]
29.       "If you give up your lust for money and throw your gold away.." If you do what? Give up your lust for money, quit your lust and your greed for money, quit covetousness.
30.       Quit the desire to be a millionaire like Chika which will make you to bow down to the shrine at Osun State, and to an unknown priest in charge of a shrine, who was “blessing” you.
31.       Even with your mouth, you proclaimed, "I know I will be a millionaire. I will be a billionaire. God will make me a millionaire." Look at your head with which to be a millionaire.
32.       Do you think it is easy? If you are given one million, don't you know that you will hang yourself? Don't you know that you will jump into river Niger? Ordinary fifty thousand you were given made you stay awake till morning. You were told to keep it under the bed, that you are the owner Chika, you will be thinking of what you are going to use it to do till morning. If you are now given one million, won't you jump into River Niger? A vehicle will even knock you down, a car will knock you down while you are thinking of what you will do with the one million. Do you think controlling money is easy? Yes...
33.       "...Which, if you give up your lust for money,...your lust for money...and throw your gold away,...Throw your gold and silver away, ...then the Almighty Himself shall be your treasure." Who will be your treasure? The Almighty Himself.
34.       LET GOD BE OUR SUFFICIENCY. If we can be contended with what we have, we will live a self-satisfying life in the presence of the Almighty God. People are never content with their current position.
35.       Is that not what puts you people into trouble? Later! What will you do later?
36.       Quit your lust for money. Throw away all those your treasures. Whatever you may treasure higher than God is your god. Whatever anybody treasures more than God is the person's god.
37.       And you know the god of this evil age that is still at work among the children of disobedience. But today, it is failing all of them. Is it not failing them? It is failing them, even all that they use to brag.
38.       If the road is blocked, can the person with jeep pass? Am I making sense? Is there anyone still laying foundation for a mansion now?
39.       Now see the truth. We were watching Lagos last night. Was there anyone with hummer jeep or this and that? We did not even see Keke [tricycle]. No hold-up again.
40.       The world wants to return to how it was in the beginning. God is returning the world to how it was in the beginning. Let Me see you drive around with jeep again. Let Me see who will lay foundation for bungalows and duplexes again.
41.       Let us see where Chika will put the million. Let Me see who will go to school again. Let Me see those that will conduct marriage ceremonies again. Come and marry! Weddings have been banned. Weddings are over.
42.       To those who sell their land in order to bury their dead, come and bury again. Experts in organizing ceremonies should come and conduct their ceremonies. We have made up our minds.
43.       Everybody is now in their homes folding their hands. Now, there are too many obedient people.
44.       If God says no, for if he stems the tide tomorrow, people will go out in droves again and iniquity will keep on multiplying because they cannot read the signs.
45.       That is why God decided that instead of letting them loose, He will intensify it in another form. That way, He will bring you back again. If you test negative in the morning, in the night, you test positive. It will then be clear to you that you are still where you are. That death is still waiting for you.
46.       So whether you go up or down, the lockdown is sure. You have run into the house, making limited movements when the lockdown had not come. When the lockdown will start, you will become tired of staying at home.
47.       What am I saying? God has given us the remedy. As many as are hidden in Christ are secured. And you are not hiding in Christ until you see yourself as ordinary clay in the hand of God. Total submission[total obedience] to the Word of God.
48.       He that quarrels with God, quarrel not with God. He that resents the Word of God, resent it not. He that is trying to have his way, stop it immediately! THERE IS NO TOTAL INDEPENDENCE ANYWHERE.
49.       If you are fond of ridiculing the preachers, stop ridiculing the preachers. Do not ever! If money is your lot, let Christ be your lot from now. Let Christ be your sufficiency.
50.       From now henceforth, throw away all acts of stubbornness and all acts of willful disobedience to the truth. Check your life. Checkmate yourself. Be your own police man. Arrest yourself. Arrest all that is wrong in your life.
51.       Gather them together and set them ablaze. Let them burn like ordinary chaff and then be free. You enjoy peace from the Father. You enjoy peace with everybody living around you. You even have your own peace with yourself. This is because a sinner is always quarrelling with himself. Is it a lie?
52.       A sinner is always quarrelling with himself, when he does not know what is wrong with him. The truth is that he knows what is wrong with him, but he does not know how to wriggle out of it.
53.       He feels that if he abandons that evil, he will lose something. What will you lose? When you were wallowing in iniquity for long and enjoying it, what did you gain? Anybody playing with iniquity is like one playing with fire.
54.       If you give up your lust for money and throw your gold away, then the Almighty shall be your treasure. He will be your precious silverAmen!
55.       If you can throw all these things away, you will then let the Almighty God be your treasure. ANY OTHER THING YOU ARE TREASURING GREATER THAN THE ALMIGHTY GOD MAKES YOU AN IDOLATER. Is it a lie?
56.       Let us pray. If you are touched by the Holy Spirit, commit the keeping of our souls into the Almighty Hand of God. Thank Him for preserving our lives from January till now, and for ushering us into the month of April.
57.       Pray that the month of April will be better to us in this family than the previous month. Pray that we will continue to enjoy His protection, His blessings and His guidance.


 EPILOGUE
PRAYER
Precious Father, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords; we thank You O Lord for who You are. We thank You O Lord for Your love and for Your kindness towards us, more especially for Your grace and peace which we have been enjoying O Lord.
2.           Father, if our whole body turns out to be our mouths, it is not enough to praise You. It is not enough to thank You, O Lord. It is not enough to worship You.
3.           Father, we pray this day, that all our sacrifices of praise, Father, be accepted unto You O Lord.
4.           Father King of glory, we thank You O Lord for Your immeasurable love unto us O Lord. Father we can never compare the love You have for us to anything that we have O Lord.
5.           You have been seeing us through from day one. From the first day of this year when you declared that it is a year of terror, You have been seeing us through. Nothing bad has come to us, O Lord.
6.           Even when the devil has been fighting tooth and nail O Lord, You have been making us prevail O Lord, surmounting all troubles, all trials, all temptation till this day O Lord, the first day of April. Father, Your love is immeasurable.
7.           We say thank You O Lord. We say may You receive all the glory, all the honour, now and forever more through Christ out Lord.   Amen.
8.           Father, not all that saw the first day of March are alive to see the first day of April. But we are here O Lord, counting Your blessings, naming them one by one. Father, King of glory, to You be all the glory.
9.           Father, we pray this day that You continue that good work You have started in us. May that light which you have lit in us never go down. May it continue to shine bright, O Lord.
10.       Father King of glory, we appreciate You O Lord. We welcome you O Lord. Father, we are very, very happy with You O Lord. Father King of glory, our mouths are filled with praises and worship. O Lord, our hearts filled with joy.
11.       Father, who are we to receive such love from You O Lord. Even from the Message we heard this morning, look at the love You have for us O Lord, putting us back on track O Lord, admonishing us O Lord, from the Scriptures, and using both your spoken Word and the written Word too, to make us never to veer off from the track O Lord, even helping those that have veered off to come back.
12.       Father that is the highest love O Lord. Even if we do not have any food today, just this Word we have received is enough for us O Lord.
13.       Father, King of glory, we thank You O Lord for loving us by giving us this Message. It is a wonderful privilege that we are the first fruits of this Message O Lord, receiving it fresh from your fountain O Lord.
14.       Father, for every stony heart O Lord, we pray that with the power in this Word O Lord, may You break that heart. Father, we pray this day O Lord that we will live our lives as we have heard it from the Scriptures O Lord.
15.       We pray that we will become that clay and You will be our potter O Lord.
16.       May we stop quarrelling with You O Lord. May we stop arguing with You O Lord. May we stop reasoning with You O Lord. May we stop growing angry with You O Lord because all these things will bring about our destruction O Lord.
17.       You have told us in Your Word that whatever that is going to kill us is what is in us, O Lord. And that those things that we are harboring inside us will gang up and destroy us O Lord.
18.       Father King of Glory, today, we welcome Your Word into our hearts O Lord. We make our hearts Your home O Lord.
19.       Father enter our hearts O Lord and make Your throne there O Lord. May our hearts O Lord be Your home O Lord. May it be where You will be residing O Lord. Come and be a landlord over our lives O Lord.
20.       May we never see You as a tenant O Lord, Be the Landlord O Lord. Father, come and take full preeminence O Lord. Father, use Your Power O Lord, and transmit these Messages into the lives of all our family members wherever they are O Lord.
21.       Any material thing that might be encumbering them O Lord, making them to remove their eyes from this our target O Lord, Father may this Word bring them back to track O Lord.
22.       You know the devil and his plans O Lord, and how he has sworn to make sin little for those that have sworn to be with You O Lord. Father, King of glory, may he never laugh at us O Lord.
23.       Father in Your love, O Lord, forgive our sins and trespasses O Lord. All our shortcomings, O Lord, may Your mercy, may Your grace, may Your love always prevail over judgement.
24.       Never remember our sins O Lord, but count us worthy to be those O Lord that You will say, “They are the righteous saints of mine”, O Lord. Father King of glory never count our iniquities on us O Lord;
25.       Even the ones we have done before and the ones we are harboring in our hearts, Father, we pray that You forgive all and make us never to go back to our sinful past, O Lord, and that we will use the written Word and the spoken Word, O Lord to make a decision, to make a promise, to make a vow never to go back to our past.
