BEWARE OF SPIRITUAL DEATH VOLUME 2


bride of christ ministry worldwide
Preached On Sunday 12thApril, 2020 At The Bridal Lodge, Nsugbe, Anambra State, Nigeria By PASTOR WISDOM ODOEMENA MODERATED BY APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN THE MOST COMPASSIONATE BEING

Whosoever God sends in your day is the God of your day. Once He finds fault with you, God has found fault with you. When you are pleasing Him, you are pleasing the person that sent Him. If your relationship with Him is strained,
forget about eternal life because your relationship with God is strained. If you dare pull on His
shirt, you are pulling on God’s shirt. When you mock Him, you are mocking God. You ridicule Him, you are ridiculing God. You ignore Him, you are ignoring God. You will not see another God than He that is sent, for God Himself dwells in whom He has sent.
NO DECEPTION IS OF THE TRUTH VOL. 1

OBEDIENCE IS BASED
ON REVELATION

Are you complying with or obeying the Word of God; Preached on Sunday 20th November 2016: Page 75 vs 21:21Rebellion is the worst thing that will happen in any organised group or a family.
2.         And every family that is named after Christ must depart from iniquity or rebellion.
3.           Rebellion is idolatry. Note that what we are treating are things that will lead us to spiritual death. Beware of spiritual death!
4.           If you are told to beware of something, you will, first of all,note what can lead you into that thing. If you note it, the remedy is very near. But when you do not know or when you do not understand what can lead you to spiritual death,you can never know when you are spiritually dead.
5.           Recognize what puts you into trouble and then avoid it. Recognize that which brings about quarrelling between you and God and avoid it. When you do that, you have the victory. You have the peace. And You have the assurance of salvation.
6.           That is if you avoid it and remain steadfastly avoiding it, holding unto that your spirit unto the end, not avoiding today and going back tomorrow.
7.           Not avoiding today and going back tomorrow. Remain consistent in your belief and remain persistent in your belief.
8.           ARE YOU COMPLYING WITH OR OBEYING THE WORD OF GOD;[Chapter 3] Page 27 from verse 1, 4 – 6. I am going to read extensively, but I want you to pay attention so as to pick the nuggets here.
9.           1When God has spoken concerning you, work towards realizing it by making your obedience to the truth to be fulfilled so that the promise will come to pass.
10.        When God has spoken about us,He has also spoken about this family. We heard the prayer God made this morning. You will only be a renegade and a fool to work against that prayer. Are we getting the Message?
11.        Your life must be in consonance with what God is wishing you, if you want to achieve the best in life. But what if God has great wishes for you as an individual, but you are not wishing yourself good? What will happen?
12.        That is why we are physically stagnant in Onitsha Household, year in year out. you cannot see any good thing or any good fruit emanating from Onitsha even as we hear all the testimonies emanating from other Households. Why?
13.        It is because they [Onitsha] have not believed with all their hearts. They have what we call head knowledge of the faith.
14.        They are still limping between two opinions.
15.        That is why you can never see any revival when we were in GTC. Any Minister that comes to the pulpit to open fellowship, you can confirm this to be true. They can never sing.You will be in the pulpit trying to drag every soul.
16.        But the moment THE SON OF MAN comes to the pulpit, everybody will become responsive, “Amen! Alleluia!”Once God speaks or sings a song, they will respond because they are doing mere eye-service worshipping.
17.        There is nothing you can do in the Household that can move them. The people that will support you are the Brethren that came from other Households.
18.        They are the ones that will start responding and chorusing, thereby giving you the zeal and the morale to continue singing. But Onitsha brethren will be looking at you.
19.         I have experienced it over time. You will stand there singing, but some will just stand and be moping at you. Some will be seated in the front, but they are not singing.
20.        They are just looking at you. Imagine what is going on in the heart of that person. Somebody that claims to have come to worship God and this is happening on the first day of the week!
21.        God calls all of them “Fire Extinguishers.” They do not kindle the fire. They extinguish the fire.
22.        Year in, year out,they are always the same thing. Yet, they claim that they are the ones that have believed God more. “We are the people and this is where God placed His name first.”
23.        Are you living the life that shows that this is Jerusalem? It is not professing that you are from Jerusalem that matters. We heard it in this Message.
24.        They are followers and not believers.
25.        When your obedience is fulfilled, nothing stops God from bringing the promise He has spoken about you to pass.
26.        Exactly what we heard yesterday.
27.        1When God had spoken concerning you, work towards realizing it by making your obedience to the truth to be fulfilled so that the promise will come to pass.
28.        This Message was preached on that day Sister Onyii gave birth to Temi. That was on 20th November 2016.
29.        Compliance is duty, while obedience is love. Complying to the Truth is duty, while obedience is love.
30.        It takes the love a child has for the parents to do what the parents told him to do. Are we getting the Message? It takes the love you have for your parents, simply because you do not want your mother or your father to be angry. That is when you will do what you are told to do.
31.        But when you do not have any love for them, when you do not recognize yourself as a child, and when you do not see yourself as a part of that family, can you have the interest of your parents in your heart?
32.        4[What]I[God]am seeking [from you is only]implicit obedience to the truth from your inward part. ....
33.        5Compliance means “Whether you like it or not.” Thus you must be compelled...[but]obedience is voluntary. Obedience is based on love. Obedience is based on revelation. Obedience is based on impact. Obedience is based on the benefit.Alleluia!
34.        NOTE! OBEDIENCE IS BASED ON LOVE, REVELATION, IMPACT AND BENEFIT.
35.        5....OBEDIENCE IS BASED ON LOVE. OBEDIENCE IS BASED ON REVELATION. OBEDIENCE IS BASED ON IMPACT. OBEDIENCE IS BASED ON THE BENEFIT.
36.        First of all, you ask yourself, “What is God going to derive if I obey this Message?”This is because people think that obedience to God is doing God a service.
37.        Never! You do not know that obedience to God is doing yourselves a service. When I obey, I am doing myself a service, while disobeying God means doing yourself a disservice.
38.         And first of all, you must have the revelation that this Message that is going on is for your own good and not for your destruction.
39.        I should have the revelation that all the MessageI am receiving is for my salvation and not otherwise, for nobody hates me. what I am told is the truth. Can the whole communitycome together and hate you? Who are you?
40.        I was talking to some persons at Enugu and I asked them, “How can a whole Fellowship [Household] join together and say they hate you?What do you have to offer to the Household?Who are you?
41.        So the church is wrong, and you are right?Who are they fighting? They are fighting that evil spirit in you. Nobody hates you. Now that you have changed your ways,is there anybody indicting and rebuking you again?
42.        They do not want you to contaminate them.
43.        6Compliance has no consideration, often times force is needed to force somebody to comply. The person is complying contrary to his nature.
44.        Sure! Because he is being threatened.
45.        That is why anger will come. You will see anger on the face of such a fellow because what he is doing is contrary to his nature.
46.        You will see complaining, murmuring.Hostility, moodiness and unnecessary quietness. The person becomes dumb. Unnecessary exclusion from others. He prefers living a solitary life.
47.        ‘Let me stay on my own before they start complaining about that I said or did something.”
48.        A sure sign that he is acting contrary to his nature. He is being threatened.
49.        Watch everything that is going on in you. Once correction goes forth or the Word of God goes forth and it brings unnecessary moodiness or unnecessary separation, watch what is going on in you.
50.        Instead of bringing joy.
51.        This is because whosoever God loves, He corrects. [Hebrews 12:6] God says in the book of Hebrews that there is no correction of this present time that seemeth joyous, but rather yields a peaceable fruit of righteousness and growth in character.
52.        Hebrews 12:11. AMP. 11For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems grievous and painful; but afterwards it yields a peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it [a harvest of fruit which consists in righteousness--in conformity to God's will in purpose, thought, and action, resulting in right living and right standing with God].
53.        Hebrews 12: 11, GNB.When we are punished, it seems to us at the time something to make us sad, not glad. Later, however,those who have been disciplined by such punishment reap the peaceful reward of a righteous life.
54.        Hebrews 12:11, LB.Being punished isn’t enjoyable while it is happening–it hurts! But afterwards we can see the result, a quiet growth in grace and character.Sure!!!
55.        This is where I have been looking for, a quiet growth in grace and character, let us underline it.
56.        THAT WAS WHAT ABSALOM MISSED FROM THE FATHER AND BECAME REBELLIOUS AND UNFRUITFUL. REFUSE TO BE DISCIPLINED AND YOU BECOME A BEAST.
57.        YOU BECOME A BEAST AND A CANDIDATE OF HELL. REFUSE TO BE DISCIPLINED AND LOSE CHARACTER. CHARACTER FORMATION BEGINS WITH DISCIPLINE.
58.        It is upon this revelation that every parent that has this revelation raise their children right. They do not look at the faces of their child while giving them that correction, and anybody that obstructs their way in giving them that correction becomes their greatest enemy.
59.        Check every family. But if they start looking at their faces, this is what many families are missing today because they are afraid that their children will hate them. It is better for your children to hate you now, so that in the future they will thank you.Yes!!!
60.        Hebrews 12:11, LB. Being punished isn’t enjoyable while it is happening–it hurts! But afterwards we can see the result, a quiet growth in grace and character.
61.        Alleluia! And this is what is happening in this family. This is because God never spared us with Mummy. They never spared us while raising us right. They never looked at our countenances for one day.
62.        A point came and we hated them. We were afraid. We were angry because God says it is not enjoyable. God never painted a good picture of correction or said that correction will be very joyous. No!
63.        EVERY MESSAGE THAT BRINGS THE RIGHT LIVING IN US IS A MESSAGE THAT WALKS CONTRARY TO YOUR HUMAN NATURE.
64.        IT IS A MESSAGE THAT WALKS CONTRARY TO YOUR LONG ESTABLISHED PRINCIPLES, AND WALKS CONTRARY TO YOUR VILLAGE TRADITIONS WHICH YOU UPHOLD VERY TIGHTLY.
65.        THAT IS WHY, ONLY TRUTH THAT HURTS CAN CHANGE CHARACTER. COSMETIC TRUTH MEANS DECEIT. COSMETIC TRUTH MEANS DECEIT. IT CAN NEVER TOUCH CHARACTER POSITIVELY.
66.        WHAT IS COSMETIC TRUTH? IT IS PAMPERING SOMEBODY WHEN HE OR SHE IS IN ERROR SO THAT HE OR SHE WILL LOVE YOU. COSMETIC TRUTH MEANS SPEAKING GOOD AND PRAISING AN EVIL DOER SO THAT HE OR SHE WILL NOT HATE YOU.
67.        Who will like to receive that type of praise? It is better a wise man disciplines me, corrects me than for a fool to pamper, praise and encourage me to ride on, “Ride on!” So it is better for a righteous man to correctyou than for a fool to sing your praise. [Psalms 141:5]
68.        That is why God said, “At every point, always watch your back.” I use to tell people,“Do not say somebody gossiped about me. He criticized me.”
69.        Note that criticism. Note that gossip. In every lie, there is a half-truth. Watch what circulates in the social media about celebrities.
70.        Most of them are not true but they are a lead to the truth, and at the tail end, you will see that there are some elements of truth in it.
71.        THAT IS WHY CRITICISM HELPS A LEADER TO STRENGTHEN HIS LEADERSHIP QUALITIES. CRITICISM SHOWS A LEADER HIS LIMITATIONS. SO, WHEN YOU HATE CRITICISM, YOU MUST ERR IN LEADERSHIP.
72.        THAT IS WHY THE SON OF MAN SAID, “CRITICISE ME IF YOU CAN. IT IS YOUR RIGHT. I WELCOME BOTH CONSTRUCTIVE AND DESTRUCTIVE CRITICISM, FOR IT HELPS ME TO STRENGTHEN MY LEADERSHIP QUALITIES AND HELPS ME ALSO TO KNOW MY LIMITATIONS.



I am always on the Lord’s side. I do not care who you are. I do not care your relationship with Me. Once you do not take side with God, I am against you and God is against you. Every true Seed of God takes side with God. Whether man or woman, you are on the Lord’s side.... Our relationship with God is likened to a marital conjugation. The Almighty God is our Husband. Do you believe that? If we are what we claim to be, the family of God, then God is our Leader, God is our Head, the very Christ is our Head and our Husbandman.

TEACH OBEDIENCE IN YOUR FAMILIES, NOT COMPLIANCE[1]

Are you complying with or obeying the Word of God; Preached on Sunday 20th November 2016: Page 28 vs. 5, 8, 10 - 11.
2.           5....Obedience is based on love, obedience is based on revelation, obedience is based on impact, obedience is based on the benefit.
3.           8But compliance is duty. While you are complying, you are being compelled to do something. It has become a duty. And nothing is as painful as duty. For that reason, you will not go far.
4.           He is a wheel-barrow worshipper. A wheel-barrow believer. That is the pure truth. Now that the worshiping of God has gone back to our homes, the individual will extinguish like fire because the little fire that was generated in him was rekindled by the Ministers.
5.           Now there is no Minister or Deacon to wake her from sleep in the fellowship. There is nobody to check you again.
6.           Yes! Congregational revival.
7.           No Deacon to tell him to come inside that he had stayed too long outside. The husband lacks the willpower and also lacks the zeal. Ask yourself what that family will look like from now.
8.           Nobody checks lateness again.Nobody says, “Start early.” They have nobody to fear and respect again.
9.           THE SON OF MAN is not there again to monitor. This is what has caused the Spiritual death. The snake has beaten that family as they worship God at home.
10.        Some will even be commanding their husband to do fast to enable them go and prepare food for the children.
11.        Some know the Message that is fit for the family more than the husband. They will be complaining, “Is this not the Message you preached last Sunday. You have preached that Message enough. Find another Message to preach.”
12.        Yes! Some of the Sisters are now the preachers and ministers in their families. GOD DOES NOT SPEAK IN VAIN, FOR EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IS A PROPHECY. I BELIEVE IT, EVEN THOUGH YOU DO NOT BELIEVE. FOR EVERY WORD THAT GOES FORTH FROM THE MOUTH OF THE LORD, THE SON OF MAN IS A PROPHECY.
13.        And if you check what we hear, the testimonies from our fellow Brethren will show you that this is what is happening now.
14.        Even though we cannot stand to say it, but testimonies that we hear from our fellow Brethren about their fellowship will bear evidence to this truth that it is happening now. That is why many families are spiritually dead, and yet they know it not.
15.        THEY ARE SPIRITUALLY QUARANTINED BECAUSE CORONA VIRUS HAS ATTACKED THEIR SPIRITS. THEY ARE QUARANTINED BECAUSE OF SNAKE BITES WHILE THEY WORSHIP AT HOME.
16.        While some have decreed offering out from their service. Offering does not exist again.
17.        It is no longer included in the five-fold worship.
18.        That is if there is worship at all. Fellowship is just like family altar where they sit down, read pray and go away. They will shift the time of fellowship to 6’oclock so that when they wake they just do it and vanish. Then they will say, “It is OK A word is enough for the wise, it is not how long you stay that matters but the impact.”
19.        I am telling you the gospel truth. You know when God does something, it looks very physical in our eyes.
20.        I went to Instagram®, and one girl posted a video saying that their mother insisted that they have not been worshipping God because they were going to church.
21.        The girl in that video said that the mother was of the opinion that if going to church made them to worship God, now that they are staying at home, it then means that God does not exist.
22.        You should see the video. A heathen! They turned their house into a church and then put plastic chairs. Those that we call heathens. The mother was the one preaching, using the Bible, while their father was in the bed.
23.        Their mother insisted that there must be church in their house every Sunday. Yet, we call such a person a heathen.
24.        This spirit is alive in people that call themselves members of this Faith. They only believe that God exists in GTC.
25.        And in their fellowship centres.
26.        That is why they are the only people that are happy. They are even happy that God should make it everlasting so that we will remain here. I am telling you the gospel truth. How long have you been going to that fellowship centre, and what has it done in your life?
27.        I was commending Sister Fruitfulness in Kano who had long established, through the help of her husband, home fellowship. And has been downloading the Voice of THE SON OF MAN, reading the Messages until the husband showed keen interest, equipping the family, for he is seeing the fruit of what they are doing in his family.
28.        He is enjoying peace in his family.  I mean he threw his weight behind them. Now that all of us are at home including the husband, nobody worships in the fellowship center again.
29.        So God is no longer out there. God is now in the homes. To her, it is not a new thing, for she has already stabilized. But to many, they are shattered.
30.        She has been pastoring herself, pastoring her family, fulfilling the fivefold. She sends her offerings down here every Sunday. She does not miss it. Verify from Pastor Thomas.
31.        Her husband equips all of them, including the children, for the husband belongs to Church of Christ in Nigeria [COCIN]. They believe wholeheartedly in the New Testament and the man is really playing a supportive role, helping them to serve God in spirit and in truth.
32.        But here, those that are depending on their fellowship centers as the only place they will go and see God, the only place they will never go late, the only place they will go and have revival, what do you think will be their fate now?
33.        Begin to see their pictures. All of them have been quarantined. All are now in their spiritual mortuaries, but the living is still alive in their homes. I say, the living is still alive.
34.        Many died because they do not have the spirit of Christ before their corpses were carried home. Husbands carried their own. Wives carried their own. And they went home and dumped them in their home mortuaries. I call it self-quarantine. Family quarantine, and not family worship.
35.        So this is just showing us picture of what God is doing and also to show us that God does not speak in vain, and that this topic BEWARE OF SPIRITUAL DEATH is really what we need at a time like this.
36.        Yes!
37.        Imagine a situation where a brother in the Faith does not know how to sing from the HymnBook.
38.        Not even [the hymn] AMAZING GRACE.
39.        I will say this, for if I do not say it, Bro Elijoe, I do not like you. I am a Pastor. I use to observe it from here. You do not know how to sing most of the songs we sing from our Hymn Book.
40.        Right from Enugu!
41.        God said that we should sing spiritual songs [hymns] unto the LORD. So, if that spirit is in you, if the devil creeps into you, what will that person use in fighting the devil? 
42.        God said that if you are a joyful child of God, a joyful believer, at every point in time, if you are washing you are singing. If you are eating, you are singing. If you are walking on the road, you are singing. Even if you are not singing in your mouth, the song is going on in your heart. Amen!
43.        This is because God said that it is what is in your heart that you give out. If it is not in you, what will you give out?



I am always on the Lord’s side. I do not care who you are. I do not care your relationship with Me. Once you do not take side with God, I am against you and God is against you. Every true Seed of God takes side with God. Whether man or woman, you are on the Lord’s side.... Our relationship with God is likened to a marital conjugation. The Almighty God is our Husband. Do you believe that? If we are what we claim to be, the family of God, then God is our Leader, God is our Head, the very Christ is our Head and our Husbandman.

TEACH OBEDIENCE IN YOUR FAMILIES, NOT COMPLIANCE [2]

Imagine a situation where many brothers, [I am not talking about Bro Elijoe], I say many in the Fellowship we see from their seat do not know the hymns quoted from the Hymn Book. Some do not know normal songs. Then, how do they even lead their families
2.           They do not even pray. They do not know how to pray.
3.           It is in this Faith that a child was asking the father, “Why do we not sing from the hymn book in our house?” This is because the father does not know even one hymn in the hymnbook. If the father does not know, is it the wife that will know? 
4.           I say, it pays to come closer to God. God was talking to the Elders, and He said, “There are two categories of Sisters in this Faith. [1] Those that came to worship God and [2] Those that came to have children.
5.           God said that those in category [2] have no part in what God is saying. It does not even concern them. They do not even understand. If you ask them what we believe, you will find out that they do not know. And they do not even want to know.
6.           They came to raise children, cook food, and join “The Married League.”“Married Women’s League.” “After all, I am married.”
7.           This was the message I took down to Enugu where Sister Elijoe confirmed it. In a situation where you are empty as a mother, what are you going to raise in your children? When she sees where her child is being corrected and rebuked, she will be boiling with rage and even defendingsuch a child with the excuse that the child is still a small baby. That was what Sister Elijoe was saying. And you are saying that thing in front of that child while the child is being corrected. How do you think that child can ever change in this life?
8.           It will be very difficult.
9.           And I now remember The Voice that went forth when God said that He can never allow them to come down here because if they come down here, Bro Elijoewill never allow anybody to correct them again.
10.        That’s truth!
11.        I am just saying it, using one family to show you what is happening in many families.
12.        That is the one we should use because he is here with us.
13.        BEWARE OF SPIRITUAL DEATH. This is because many have died. Yet, they do not know. It is in the light of the Word of God that we know your state, and also know your condition.
14.        If you do not come to fellowship, youwill not know what is happening in your life. You will think that you are standing right when you have already fallen off from where you were standing.
15.        That is why the Scripture said, “You that think you are standing, be careful. Take heed to yourself, lest you fall. [1 Corinthians 10:12]
16.        Remember that at this point in time, havoc can till strike. And until we enter paradise, we have not completely won the devil.
17.        The devil will remain fighting. So you, as a child of God, should remain fighting too. The more he is fighting YOU, the more you keep on fighting. KEEP ON FIGHTING the more. AND AS FAR AS YOU ARE BELIEVING GOD, THE MORE GRACE GOD IS GIVING YOU TO OVERCOME HIM.
18.        That is the secret of defense
19.        IF YOU AGREE GOD WILL AGREE FOR YOU. I SAY, IF YOU AGREE GOD WILL AGREE FOR YOU.
20.        When you consent to the devil, he will become active in your life. The power of the devil lies in your giving your consent to the devil. I will show you in our Message. God said that the devil is a human being. We say that if you agree with your God, your God will also agree for you.  It is the same with the devil who can only be active in your life if you give him your consent.
21.        YOU MUST BELIEVE IN ONE THING. I SAY, YOU MUST BELIEVE IN ONE THING. YOU EITHER BELIEVE GOD FOR YOUR SALVATION OR YOU BELIEVE THE DEVIL FOR YOUR DESTRUCTION. AMEN!!!
22.        If you are complying, see what we will notice in you. Murmuring will follow it. Grumbling will follow it. Complaining will follow it. Anger will follow it because you are forced contrary to your nature.
23.        10Obedience to the truth gives joy because you have reasoned well in you, you understood, you have weighed the benefit. You weigh the disadvantages, you weigh everything, and you weigh your own personal impact. Why? ...
24.        Why is it necessary that I must obey this Message? Why is it necessary?  Too many people in this Faith are merely complying. If there is a time we are worshipping God or obeying God, it is now.
25.        As families.
26.        They have been merely complying because they know that if they do not come to Fellowship on Sunday the Pastor will ask of them. I am telling you the truth.
27.        They were merely complying. It is now that we have total obedience to God because, at this point, there is no Pastor to check you. No Deacon to Deacon you. No SON OF MAN to see you. You are your own everything.
28.        You do not pay transport fair to go to fellowship. Nobody suffers on traffic jam. Whether schools are reopening or not, no traffic jam.
29.        11...If you are complying,... You have no revelation. 12In other words, you are afraid of people. ... You are afraid of what they will say, how they will look at you and how they will consider you.
30.        But at this point in time, nobody is considering you again. You are now in your home. You are your Pastor. Nobody has the time to wake you up and to do everything. You are your own Minister.
31.        So this is the time when God will see those that will have total obedience to His word and those that are merely complying. Do not be surprised that if God now says “Let one Minister be going from house to house”, that is when they will wake up and start doing normal fellowship. They will be enquiring,“When did ‘they’ say the Pastor will be coming to our house? When did they say he will be coming?”
32.        They will start programming him immediately.
33.        I am telling you the truth. “Pastor, is it today ‘they’ say you are to visit my house or tomorrow? Did ‘they’ say you are visiting my house on Sunday?”I am telling you the truth. It will now become an eye-service thing.
34.        But, in this family that is called of God, we are not waiting for anybody.
35.        Who are you?
36.        That is why we are holding the Scriptures in Joshua 24:15. As for us; as for me and my Household, we will serve the LORD.
37.        Joshua 24:15. Good News Bible.15If you are not willing to serve him, decide today whom you will serve, the gods your ancestors worshiped in Mesopotamia or gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are now living. AS FOR MY FAMILY AND ME, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD.As for who? As for this family.
38.        Amplified version of the Bible. 15And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve,…  
39.        If it seems evil for you to serve this God; if it is cumbersome, we are showing you the way out. God said, “Make a decision today.”
40.        Sure!!
41.        15And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD.
42.        Amen. As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. So, this is a resolution we have made as a family. And when that decision was made, there was nobody living with us.
43.        And nobody can cause us to do otherwise.
44.        Instead of you causing us to do otherwise we put you away. You cannot be a spot in our feast of love.
45.        Are you complying with or obeying the Word of God; Pg. 30 vs. 12. 12In other words, you are afraid of people. You are afraid of some people. You are afraid of what they will say and how they will look at you.
46.        They have been complying because they were afraid of people.They were afraid of how they will look at them.
47.        13If that is why you are in this Faith, you are merely a visitor that will go with time. I do not care how many years you have[sojourned]in this  faith. You are just a visitor.
48.        You are just a visitor that will go with time
49.        And God can never save you because you have no part in him. God said no matter how many years the person has done what? Sojourned. “Sojourning”and “Staying” are not the same thing. You were merely running around making pretenses that you are with God, but inwardly, you know that you are not with God.
50.        If God never stood against Ugochukwu, nobody would have known what the boy had in heart. That is truth! This is because he was dancing; he was preaching; he was singing. There was nothing that he was not doing, but God was still against him.
51.        At a point, we were saying that maybe, Daddy did not like Ugochukwu. And you know, the fact there is that he was the only person who, once God’s Voice went forth against him, what he did would stand before him. He would be seeing it. And he would still pretend as if he did not know what God was saying. But with time, God showed him the way out.
52.        God exposed him and the eyes of all were opened to see that he was a green snake in green grass. This is because, such hypocrisy, according to the Bible, cannot last for too long. It must be exposed.[Luke 12:1 – 2]


80(Allah) said: "Respite then is granted thee- 81"Till the Day of the Time Appointed." 82(Iblis) said: "Then, by Thy Power, I will put them all in the wrong,-83"Except Thy Servants amongst them, sincere and purified (by Thy Grace)." 84(Allah) said: "Then it is just and fitting-and I say what is just and fitting-85"That I will certainly fill Hell with thee and those that follow thee,-everyone."
THE NOBLE QUR’AN: Surah 38: 80 – 85

GOD DOES NOT OPERATE IN THE MIDST OF UNBELIEVERS

GOLDEN NUGGETS VOLUME 3 [A Compilation of Memory verses from the Messages of THE SON OF MAN]; Page 35 from verse 24 – 25. 24We can see that in Christ lies everything. Therefore, we do not leave God behind for any reason.
2.           When you leave God behind, for the sake of money, you are like a man that left palm fruit bunch behind and end up picking only its fruits. But when you carry the whole bunch, everything is in it.
3.           25All I am saying is that in Christ lies all we need, if only we can yield ourselves to Him.
4.           Thepoint has been on dedication. How are you dedicated to God?
5.           God was telling the Ministers when we were together upstairs,“Do not expect any miracle to happen again in your life because the extent you yield yourselves to God is the extent God will use you.”
6.           Yield yourself wholesomely to God, and pray to God with a sincere heart, for God said that He can never overlook the prayer of a broken and contrite heart. These are the things that God need from us at a time like this to avoid spiritual death.
7.           Remember, this death we are talking about does not respect your position in Christ; A Bishop, Apostle, Pastor notwithstanding.
8.           The devil is a no respecter of persons. He does not even respect who you are. I say, the devil does not respect who you are.
9.           The only thing the devil respects is Christ in a man. If Christ is not in you, you are a powerful tool in the hand of the devil to torment your fellow humanity and to lead them astray.
10.        Always bear it in mind that the essence of possessing a man by the devil lies in using that person to wreak havoc, whether in a family, in a congregation or anywhere. So an evil fellow wreaks havoc.
11.        THE WORD; Preached on Sunday 13th January 2019; Page 54 verse 43, Page 55 verse 45.43Obeying God with deep reverence... and ...shrinking back from all that might displease Him.
12.        45Not shallow reverence. Not paying lip service. Not playing hypocrisy. Not playing eye service.[But] obeying God with deep reverence.
13.        SO, FOR YOU TO OBEY GOD WITH DEEP REVERENCE, YOU MUST HAVE DEEP REVELATION OF WHO GOD IS. Alleluia!
14.        It is that revelation of who God is that will make you, or give you inspiration on things to do so as to please God.
15.        If we do not have revelation that this PA System was needed because the noise from the Fans disturbs Messages and makes it difficult for transcribers to transcribe the Message;if the revelation was not in me or in us, there was no waywe could have achieved getting this PA System.
16.        And watch! To every true seed of God, once that revelation strikes you as an individual, you do not need to negotiate with any human being. Once the revelation strikes you, I say, you do not need to negotiate with any human being.
17.        That is why I felt astonished when I came in here. I was looking around. I looked at Mummy’s face. I knew we never discussed this; I never even envisaged it.
18.        But I said, “To God be the glory.” Whoever that will come up with this type of thing, just to boost our worship, to boost our Fellowship so that our tapes [recordings] will be clearer, and we can now worship lavishly without straining our voices or throats, you are already blessed.”
19.        All of you that discussed it, purchased it and placed it here, you can win my support on something like this. I thank God. Keep it up.
20.        So it is that deep revelation, that deep reverence that will make you to know things that you will do that are the acceptable will of God for you.
21.        But once you do not have that revelation, or once you begin to negotiate that revelation, you will miss what God needs from you.
22.        That is why God said that this is the point where your personal revelation about who God is will sustain you as we go home to worship God. God said it on that last Sunday; that day we received our final anointing.
23.        God said that this is the time when your personal revelation about who the Son of Man is, will be the only thing that will sustain you because most of you here are seeing My face for the last time. We do not know where we are going to meet again. Sure!
24.        Bro Lucky Reminded me of the Message and that was what God said, that you do not know, and that when you hear My Voice it will be like gold.
25.        See what Brethren are doing in the WhatsApp, with Brethren from the North praising God, that this is even the time that they do not even want Fellowship to go to GTC again. This is because now, they are hearing the Voice of God on a daily basis.
26.        That is what they said.
27.        Bro John was saying that it now looks like THESON OF MAN is living in his house. He now has family altar two times: in the morning and every 4 o’clock.
28.        And it will end anytime.
29.        And itdoes notstop them from their night prayertoo.
30.        It is now that the real children of God are now practicing the way they ought to worship God.
31.        That is keeping them close. Nobody wants to go out again. They say, “Go out to look for what?”
32.        The presence of a hypocrite limits the power of God. Sure.
33.        The presence of a hypocrite in the house of God limits the power of God. Why the Word of God has not been having that transforming power in your life is because you have yoked yourself with an unbeliever beside you.
34.        Once the food [Word] goes forth, he will give you his own interpretation.  Within the Fellowship, you will see Emma Nnachor openly defying the Message. God will make statement and he queries with a body language, “What is He saying?” You can see it.That is truth!
35.        So people like him will be telling you to forget about it. I am telling you the gospel truth. A Message will be going forth, and he will tell you, “Forget all these things they are saying.” I am telling you the truth.That is Truth!
36.        And foolish people around him will now leave the Message and will be listening to him. He will start up a story and start telling them, just to make sure thathe nullifies the power of God.
37.        And watch out! Itis at that point that God is making that statement that will change your life. And that is when the devil will bring up a seducing spirit.
38.        He wants you to be like him.
39.        It may come in form of groundnut offered to you. And as you take some of it and start eating, you are totally distracted from the message that is going on. Seducing spirit comes with food, with sleep.
40.        The person will pick his phone and he will start reading WhatsApp messages and transacting on WhatsApp right there in the fellowship. I am telling you the truth. Some will leave the fellowship and go out to fulfill that thing that is their heart.
41.        I say, the presence of a hypocrite in the house of God limits the power of God.  This is because God will consider the works He wants to do and still considers this mixed multitude, these unbelievers, make believers.
42.        GOD DOES NOT OPERATE IN THE MIDST OF UNBELIEVERS.
43.        SO THE TRANSFORMATION POWER OF GOD ISALWAYS IN THE WORD OF GOD.
44.        It is among the believers.
45.        That is why the entrance of the Word of God regenerates A man, rebuilds a man, revitalizes a man and makes you a brand new individual.
46.        God said that in the preaching of this Message, we are casting out demons. That is why we cannot recant. We cannot recant in this family.
47.        Rather, we are building, stepping higher every day. That is why our song says, [“God leads me on and let me stand by faith on heaven’s table land. A Higher plane than I have found. God plant my feet on higher ground.]
48.        Every day, every family altar, every second, you are upgradingand going to higher ground. That is why God said that He wants us to be the first fruit of this immortality. And pray I it is going to be so through Christ our LORD. Amen.
49.        This should be the resolution of every child of God. Come what may, I do not care what the devil is doing, I am a part of this journey. I am not recanting my faith. I am not drawing back.
50.        If Christ, the author of salvation has not drawn back, who are you to draw? Who am I to draw back?
51.        I am only interested in what God is saying. To hell with the devil and those that give him attention.
52.        God said that, as a true seed of God, you do not recognize who is beside, you are only seeing yourself and God.
53.        But watch those hypocrites in the fellowship, they will touch you in the fellowship, and they will find something they will give to you, trying to distract your attention from God.
54.        At times, God will even anoint them in Ministers. They will go to the pulpit and will just be shouting and they will not even dish out a single Word [Message]. Your jotter will remain empty because the spirit ofentertainment has beclouded that Minister.
55.        But now, they are feeding their families with what they have. And now, God is feeding us with what we need. Alleluia.
56.        I AM THE WORD; Preached on 19th January, 2014; Page 33 verse 32 32Every man, every woman has a ministry as far as I am concerned. You have a ministry and I have a ministry and you strive to make full proof of your ministry.
57.        This is because salvation is tied to your ministry.He [God] said, “Strive to make full proof of that ministry.” Brethren, are we getting the Message? I hopewe are not sleeping.Our salvation is tied to what?  Our ministry. God said, “Every Brother. Every Sister.” God is not excluding anybody.
58.        I was speaking with the youth yesterday together with Apostle Chukwudi. I did not know what God was discussing with them, but it is now that we heard that it was the same thing that we discussed under that canopy that God discussed with them.
59.        I told them that if God has accused your fathers of unbelief, and you are from the same loin of your father, until you understand and see that your father is an unbeliever, there is no way you can fight that unbelieving spirit in your family.
60.        Count yourself that you are part of the problem of Onitsha. Stop excluding yourself. Stop shifting the Message toanother person because shifting that Message to another person means throwing the ball on the wall. It must bounce back to you.
61.        Bro. Atta posted in the Bridal WhatsApp Youth Forum saying, “Now that God has given us Ministers [young ministers], we should go to our families, preach and do everything. And we should make sure that we are examples in everything: In character, in learning and in everything.”
62.        He said, “So that we do not end up being only preachers, but also living the life of the Message we preach.” Bro Promise, you saw when he posted it in the Bridal WhatsApp YouthForum. And he posted it before God gave us the Message, IS YOUR LIFE WORTHY OF THE Gospel?
63.        God said he must unite all His children with His word. The same fruit. If you are of God, the same thing a Brother will say in Nassarawais the same thing God will be saying in Onitsha.
64.        The same thing will go forth in Enugu because we are all united in the same spirit. But if we are not of God, our voice will always run contrary.
65.        CHRIST IS THE IDENTITY OF EVERY ELECT; Preached on Sunday 8th February 2015; Page 65 verses 19 - 21. God went further and said;19He went further, “Now, I tell you this day, if you remain in this your condition, if you do not want to change your mind.”
66.        20If you do not want to repent of thisdevilish way, before your eyes, you that claim to be members of the Bridal Faith, adherent of the Son of Man, ardent believers of THE SON OF MAN, because you are privileged to be in Onitsha where He made His home, you are privileged to be coming before Him almost every day, even to trace Him where He places His Head; for that, you begin to think that this has given you an express ticket into Paradise,you are lying.
67.        This is the Voice that is going forth for Onitsha Brethren. The Voice said that because you are privileged to be in the church-home where God first called His name,...you think God has given you express ticket to Paradise,.... It is not so. It is not the kingdom of righteousness. ...
68.        21Only those that have been purged by the word of God, purified, whose consciences are pure before God and before their fellow man will be found there in Paradise. ...
69.        Note! Where we read in the Holy Qur’an, God said; “Only those that will be separated from this last-minute unbelief are “Your chosen slaves who are purified with grace.”” [Surah 38:82 – 83]
70.        And God is saying, if we do not purge ourselves, purge our consciences, there is no way we can make it. We will be among those that will be spiritually dead. So, this spiritual death of a thing is the main spiritual affair.
71.        At what point will I know that I, as Pastor, am no longer spiritually alive? At what point will you know as a Brother or as a Sister, that you are no longer spiritually alive? Somebody that woke up and he is already angry, what is working in that person?
72.        You wake up from your bed. Nobody woke you up. You did not exchanged greetings with anybody. You came out from your bed feeling angry. It goes to show that you had a fight with the devil.
73.        This is because every true seed of God that wakes up, wakes up with joy in his/her heart. You wake up with songs of praise in your heart.
74.        GOD SAID, “IF THE DEVIL CAN SUCCEED IN WEAKENING YOUR PRAYER LIFE, HE HAS CAPTURED YOU.
75.        I do not know how many of us that have repented after that Message of Friday in this family? This is no longer the Bride. In this family, how many of us have repented? How many of us have taken our midnight prayer very seriously?
76.        This is because God said, “For a child of God, when the Word of God goes forth, it corrects your ways and brings you back to God.” The devil does not respect you because you are a minister. I might be guilty of it. Yes!
77.        We might have slumbered because we have given ourselves over to pleasures, eating and drinking, you get tired, your soul is relaxed and you sleep.
78.        For once you sleep from 10 o’clock, no more waking up till 6 o’clock or till 5:30 am when fellowship starts. There will be no regards for midnight prayers again. Yet, we call ourselves Ministers.
79.        This is the time we need to guard ourselves from spiritual error, spiritual danger that leads to spiritual death.

I keep on telling you as a Holy Church, a peculiar people I love, I have been trying My best to espouse you to One Husband in holiness and righteousness, telling you to follow Me as I follow Him daily. Follow Me because I am the example God is setting here before you. Then, My duty is to point you to the path of Holiness.
CALLING CHRIST IN THE TIME OF CRISIS; Preached on Sunday 15th August 1993 at the Household of God, Onitsha; Pg. 86 vs. 39

LET CHRIST BE YOUR IDENTITY

How have you dedicated yourself to God through prayers? You dedicated yourself to God through prayers.
2.           A prayerful child of God is a victorious child of God. I say, a prayerful child of God is a victorious child of God.
3.           We cannot surmount the antics and the strategies of the devil only by reading these Messages. We cannot surmount the devil only by reading.
4.           We heard it on Friday in the book of 2nd Corinthians, that he will use many tricks and many strategies. I do not think we can surmount it by merely opening these Messages and preaching this gospel. There is more emphasis on our prayer life.
5.           I do not know why it is on me to tell us this. No matter how we preach, let us make sure we do not forget prayers, because it is through prayers that you dedicate yourself to God.
6.           It is through prayers that you make sure you do not go contrary to the teachings which you yourself have preached against because we have seen it happening in this Faith.
7.           That is why I like this Faith. It is a practical Faith. Whatever you want, there has been an example of somebody who has done it before or someone who had gone the same way with you. We have had mighty preachers. Where are they today?
8.           I was recounting with Apostle Chukwudi. There had been powerful Ministers that preached Messages that shook the heavens and the earth.
9.           Okey Nwankpa will remain quoting in this Faith because, in the Great Sermon, he made a powerful Message there. But where is he today?
10.        God is not looking for powerful preachers, but powerful believers who will put their preaching into action.
11.        So, do not think you have arrived because you are now a Minister of the Gospel. Do not think you are standing well because you preach the Message. Do not think you are standing well because everything is working out for you.
12.        God gave a quote yesterday. He said, “If everything is working out well for you as a child of God when your fellow Brethren are in hard times, you are not a child of God.”
13.        Yes! It is true.
14.        I say, the more you draw closer to God, the more wisdom you have.
15.        That was why Moses chose to suffer the afflictions with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of Pharaoh’s palace.
16.        God said, “Check what you are tying yourself with. Your brethren are in time of scarcity. Things are going round and nothing is working very well, but you are seeing it as season; Everything is booming for you. Business is booming. Everything is working very well. Check very well. The hand of God has rested on you for destruction. Yet, you do not know.”
17.        Not that you are using it to help others or distributing it according to their needs, but all for selfish gain.
18.        So, as a child of God, once you are walking, always try to pause and think, “Why are things working this way for me?”
19.        Why then do we call ourselves Brethren in like precious faith? This is because God said, “We share in our troubles. We share in our sorrows. We share in our joy. We share in every condition, for every condition your brother is in, you must share in that same condition with him.
20.        But why will your own case be different? That does not mean we are going to live in scarcity. No! But God said, “If God should bless you, for God is the one really blessing you, He must make you to remember your fellow Brethren.”
21.        But if you are in that position, and you have forgotten everybody selfishly, God said it is that little thing that destroys. Remember we have a Message titled, “LITTLE THINGS THAT DESTROY A FAMILY.” It is not that big thing you have committed but that one which you left undone.
22.        That one you know you should do, you say, “It is very small. It does not mean anything”, that is what will hinder you on that day.
23.        CHRIST IS THE IDENTITY OF EVERY ELECT; Preached on Sunday 8th February 2015; Page 67 verses 22.
24.        22You can be in the church and not in Christ. Yes! You can be in the Fellowship with the saints. Yet, you are not in Fellowship with Christ [for one day].
25.        That is why you must [strive] to know your status in Christ and not your status in the church.”
26.        Have you seen why we have gone home? And have you seen why many will die spiritually?
27.        Pure Truth!
28.        This is the reason why many will die spiritually because this is the time where you will know your status in Christ.
29.        This is also because most of us were deceived that travelling long distances from Nsukka, from Enugu, from Obosima, can merely give you salvation. God does not notice it.
30.        Even from the North, from the South, from the East and West.
31.        God does not notice it. This is the time we will truly know if you are an Elect or you are a non-Elect. Know your status in the Son of Man.
32.        23You can be a Bishop. You can even assume to be THE SON OF MAN. You can be prophet [or] anything. It does not make sense [on this matter].God is not saving you because of the office you are holding. He is saving you because of your obedience to this truth. finish.
33.        Some even take those risks traveling down, only to make THE SON OF MAN see and realize how zealous they are in the Faith.
34.        CHRIST IS THE IDENTITY OF EVERY ELECT. Page 83 verse 38 – 41. 38GOD IS WORSHIPED BY REVELATION. True or false? You will be watching, claiming to be here from the official beginning of the faith which is a good testimony[quite alright]: “I was there from the very beginning.”
35.        39Yes! You can be in the Bridal Faith from the very beginning, without being in the faith of Christ [THE SON OF MAN] even for one second. I am telling you the [Gospel] truth in Christ. I lie not in the Holy Spirit.
36.        Yes! There are plenty of them.
37.        40Is it [very much] possible for one to be following us from the very beginning, even till now, without entering into Christ for one day [one second]....
38.        You will ask yourself whether it is possible. God said “Yes!” Sure!!! Being in the faith for 23 years or 24 years. Yet, the person has not entered into Christ, even for one second.
39.        Being there before the foundation was laid does not take you into Christ.
40.        40Is it possible for one to be following us from the very beginning even till now without entering into Christ for one day because of [1] UNBELIEF, [2] DOUBT, [3] HYPOCRISY?
41.        So, some people have been having cosmetic approach towards God. They will prepare and make sure that Daddy will see them, and for Daddy to know that they came to Fellowship. That is where their own ends.
42.        And watch such a fellow. If he or she is rendering a service in the house of God, any day he or she is not thanked, that service will cease.
43.        Any day Pastor does not remember to say to her; “Sister thank you! Well-done”, she will become angry because her aim or his aim is to be recognized.
44.        Self-commendation.
45.        And if that commendation does not come to him or her, the person loses or automatically stops that which he is being known for. I am telling you the truth.
46.        That’s Truth!
47.        He or she will query, whether you have not noticed or acknowledged all that he or she had been doing. “You never recognize all my good efforts. It is only when I am found in just a single error, that will be the only on you will see.” These statements abide in this faith.
48.        That’s truth!
49.        “You were vigilant to notice just this one wrong thing that I did, and you keep on rebuking me, but all the good things I have been doing all this while, you did not recognize them. You are only a fault finder.” I am telling you the truth.
50.        Pure Truth!
51.        41That you followed from the beginning, you provided your vehicle, you helped THE SON OF MAN, accompanied Him to run around everywhere, you did a good work. A commendable work. But it is not a record for salvation.Sure!!
52.        Even to us in this family, living with Him is not a record for salvation. Cooking food for Him, washing His car, opening gate, or ironing His clothes is not a record for salvation.
53.        The only thing that will save you is your implicit obedience from an inward heart.Thank you!
54.        CHRIST IS THE IDENTITY OF EVERY ELECT. Page 90 verse 11 through 21.
11-16Mathew 8:11-12.And I say unto you, that many shall come from east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob,...
55.        [whose God you are serving] ...in the Kingdom of heaven, but the children of the Kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness:...
56.        17What a miserable condition! A pitiable condition! Are they children of God? Yes, is the Kingdom meant for them? Yes! Was the Kingdom created for them? Yes! But will they get it? No!
57.        18Remember in the book of Hebrews chapter 4, the Scripture made it clear that the reason our fathers could not enter the Promised Land was as a result of unbelief. [Hebrews 4:2]
58.        19Although the work was finished before the foundation of the world. They were bid to come in, [but] unbelief hindered them. This is yourown day and the Bible said that these things happened to them as example. They are written for our learning, for we are living at a time when the end shall come. ...
59.        20Do not tell me, “Once saved is always saved.” This does not work in the Faith of Christ. “I had it before” means that you do not have that property presently.
60.        Otherwise, the devil is saved. The devil was holy until iniquity was found in him.
61.        That the person whose father is Abraham cannot go to hell. That is nonsense. It does not even exist.
62.        One Brother was telling me, “Wizzy, you are very privileged. Yours is automatic ticket.” I retorted, “Automatic what? The same way you are standing before God is the same way I am standing before God.”
63.        Your own is even worse because you are constantly with Him.
64.        You hear it? Our own is even worse because we are constantly with God.
65.        20Do not tell me, “Once saved is always saved.” I do not believe in that. That you are a seed of God is [ONLY] when you continue steadfastly unto the end.”
66.        The result of all your efforts is Paradise. I do not know how you have struggled. If you are in hell, it means you have never struggled for one day. That is the pure truth.
67.        That a student struggled and worked hard in study, and finally scores “F”, it means he never did anything. The result of all your struggle and hard work is success.
68.        For a student, he or she earns grades like “A” or “B”. “I tried. I studied hard. That lecturer is very wicked. Even with all my struggles and effort to study, He still scored me “E”.” You did not read anything. That is the pure truth.
69.        Do you put fish into the pot of soup with mere words of your mouth?
70.        So, the result of all our efforts is when we see ourselves in paradise. IF WE HAVE NOT ENTERED, THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES. NYSC said, “Now your suffering continues.”
71.        Now that we are still here on earth, God said, “As the days go by, temptations and trials will become more because you are being tried by the intents of your heart.”
72.        ETERNAL LIFE IS A REWARD FOR OBEDIENCE TO THE WORD OF GOD.
73.        CHRIST IS THE IDENTITY OF EVERY ELECT. Page 93 verses 24 to 25. 24What I am trying to achieve in you is to arouse the consciousness of the hour in everybody before I will begin to give you your timetable....Amen!!
74.        25You will now begin to see how close you are into Paradise. And then,[YOU] begin to check yourself to know whether you are in line with this truth which will qualify you for entry into paradise. Or your journey will [merely] stop midway. Yes! Too many will stop [here] at the gate...
75.        26Remember that we have too many dreams. We have [too many] visions.
76.        They heard it yesterday, when they gathered here as elders that many have already been replaced by some people and they know it not. While some have exchanged their tickets with somebody else because of base gain.
77.        Yes! Some have sold off their positions in Christ because of morsel of bread. Because of a morsel of bread, they sold off their positions in Christ to foreigners who are now occupying their seats.
78.        And these are the people that are going to be disappointed at the end, for they have become fornicators like Esau who, because of a morsel of bread, sold his birthright. [Hebrews 12:16 KJV]
79.        I am saying that the Kingdom of Heaven should be the birthright of every true seed of God. But that seed of God has forfeited his own, and because of mere morsel of bread, he sold his birthright to a foreigner. He forfeits his position because of base gain. Temporary material gain that has no eternal value, he gave out his seat.
80.        That was why the book of Revelation warned under the power of the Holy Spirit that we should strive earnestly making sure that nobody takes away our crown. [Revelation 3:11]
81.        If the tendency is not there for another to take one’s crown, that warning will not be there. So, if we love our lives, it is better to pay heed to all we are hearing.
82.        One more statement, we say bye, bye. For it is almost 12noon. I had earlier programed Onitsha to dismiss by 12 noon today, to enable families to go out and see if they can get something for their families.
83.        And I never sent them out like that. Those I noticed that could not make it, I had already equipped all of them financially, making sure I gave them something that will sustain them, even within the two weeks if they can use it wisely. They can make provision for food that will last for their homes for at least two weeks, as we stay at home.
84.        Ecclesiastic chapter 8 verse 12. All translations. 12But though a man sins hundred times and still lives, I know very well that those who fear God will be better off. LB.
85.        If you like, commit iniquity one million times and stay alive physically in disobedience, those that obey God are better off than you.
86.        12Though a sinner does evil a hundred times and his days (seemingly) are prolonged [in his wickedness], yet surely I know that it will be well with those who [reverently] fear God, who revere and worship Him, realizing His continual presence.” AMP
87.        12A sinner may commit a hundred crimes and still live. Oh yes, I know what they say, “If you obey God everything will be alright, 13but it will not go well for the wicked....” GNB.
88.        12Although a wicked person who commits a hundred crimes may live a long time, I know that it will go better with those who fear God, who are reverent before him. NIV
89.        It will be well with those who fear God and who are reverent before him. So, it must be well with us as we continue to obey God in other to avoid this spiritual death. Let us not forget the topic: BEWARE OF SPIRITUAL DEATH.
90.        Do not make disobedient people your examples. Let Christ at all times be your example, who, for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross, in spite of the shame.I hope I am making sense?
91.        Finally, victoriously, He sat down at the right hand side of His Majesty in heaven. And has become the author and finisher of our faith and author of eternal life unto those who will reverently obey Him, for He first of all obeyed and became the author of eternal salvation to those who will fear, honour, revere and obey God.
92.        12Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him. KJV Amen.
93.        But it shall never be well with the wicked, for the Bible said that the wicked can never see good days. And God is angry at the wicked while he lives, for the wicked must be put to shame which is hell, while the righteous will enjoy eternal life in Paradise together with God and the host of His Angels.
94.        Thank you. That is the much we will take for today as we join the rest of our brethren to go out in search of the little thing to beef up our lives physically here. To God be the glory.
95.        I appreciate the Pastor’s Message. It is a continuation of the background I laid. Do not forget the topic: BEWARE OF SPIRITUAL DEATH AS WE STAY AT HOME AND WORSHIP GOD.
