AN UNBELIEVER IS A BURDEN TO HIMSELF

apostle peter odoemena
PREACHED DURING FRIDAY FELLOWSHIP OF 10TH JULY, 2020 AT ENUGU, NIGERIA BY PASTOR WISDOM ODOEMENA

I AM THE JUSTIFIER. I AM THE JUDGE OF THE WHOLE EARTH. IT IS AN IRREVOCABLE FACT. BELIEVE IT IF YOU CAN. LEAVE IT IF YOU CANNOT BELIEVE IT. IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE ME WHILE YOU ARE ALIVE, BEFORE YOU DIE, YOU WILL BELIEVE ME. IN LIFE OR IN DEATH, I AM THERE. YOU WILL SEE MY FACE.

HOW HAVE YOU GIVEN YOURSELF TO GOD?[1]

So, I say it is not easy for one to go out today and come back without any problem and without any stories. We have realized – not because we were told but because we have experienced it – that there is no distance that is too short.

2.           So, when you go out and you come back and you think it is light, God said it is not light.

3.           Every little time we have, we should see it as our last days here on earth. Because if you see it as your last days on earth, it will guide you towards certain footsteps you are going to take that day, and you will make sure that you do everything that day seeking God’s commendation.

4.           So, this evening, Brethren, I am going to go evangelical because I am not trying to lay a teaching. I am just trying to remind us of all that we know.

5.           Not that we forgot it, but because this is the only way we can keep being alive in the faith of the Son of Man, who is the ever-living God.

6.           It is also because if we do not remind ourselves of this truth, there is no way we can know when we are derailing. And there is no way we can know also when we are doing God a service according to his will or doing a service to God outside his will.

7.           It is in the light of all these teachings that we are making ourselves to understand what God had spoken concerning certain things to make sure that we are helping ourselves unto good works, for this is the only thing we can do for ourselves at a time like this.

8.           I may not stay long. I might invite one of us to encourage us this evening. Whichever way I am going to go, I am going according to the way God is leading me.And whichever Message I am giving, I am not giving it to anybody.

9.           I am just giving it to myself because we are told that there is an adage that says that he who is wise, while sharing anything, he will first of all, bring out his own portion before distributing to others.

10.       If you decide to share to others first before taking your own share, at the end of the day, you may discover that that your own is no longer there. This is the way it works.

11.       So, whatever I am going to lay down for us today, I am speaking to myself first. So, I will like us to follow me.

12.       Jehovah is right but I and my people have been all wrong,Volume 2; Chapter 3; Page 67. It is titled An Unbeliever is a burden to himself. An unbeliever is a what? A burden to himself.

13.       1 Corinthians 13 vs 12 – 13 LB. Give me audience there as I read.I know many might be murmuring against me, trying to tell Me whether I do not know that tomorrow is the first day of the week, as if they are the greatest worshippers.

14.       You worship more than the Son of Man. What is the essence of your worship?  Am I not here? If you have your own day, God has every day. In that day, God has every hour. God has every minute. Are you sure you will live to see tomorrow?

15.       God is saying that in everyday; human beings have every day. But in everyday you claim to allot to yourself; God has an hour. God has a minute. And God has a second.

16.       And this means if you give God that time; if you invite God to yourself business, God will take charge of that your business.

17.       But when you do not invite Him, he cannot come. You cannot say He should know. You are the one that should do what? Invite him.

18.       You can remember the soldier from the Scriptures that saw Jesus the Christ. He said, “Speak forth your word. He was inviting Jesus because Jesus was not going to see the soldier.

19.       The soldier saw him on the way. He (soldier) was the one that was billed to do what? To meet him and to draw his attention.

20.       Then the soldier told him that “Youdon’t even have to come to my house; I am not even worthy to receive you. Speak forth your word.”

21.       And the Bible recorded that in that same minute, and in that same second, that Word did what? Automatically took effect in the life of the daughter of the soldier. Is it not true?

22.       [5-6]When Jesus arrived in Capernaum, a Roman army captain came and pled with him to come to his home and heal his servant boy who was in bed paralyzed and racked with pain. [7]“Yes,” Jesus said, “I will come and heal him.” [8-9]Then the officer said, “Sir, I am not worthy to have you in my home; and it isn’t necessary for you to come. If you will only stand here and say, ‘Be healed,’ my servant will get well! I know, because I am under the authority of my superior officers and I have authority over my soldiers, and I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my slave boy, ‘Do this or that,’ and he does it. And I know you have authority to tell his sickness to go—and it will go!” [10]Jesus stood there amazed! Turning to the crowd he said, “I haven’t seen faith like this in all the land of Israel! ......[13]Then Jesus said to the Roman officer, “Go on home. What you have believed has happened!” And the boy was healed that same hour! [Matthew 8:5,7-10,13 Living Bible]

23.       So, it will show you that in every day, and in every minute, God has a particular time. If you are having problems; if you are having troubles, it is because you have not given to God that time that is allotted to God.

24.       Do you get the English? That time that is being allotted to God, you did not allot that time to Him.

25.       THAT IS WHEN CRISES WILL REIGN IN THE LIFE OF THAT INDIVIDUAL, INSTEAD OF CHRIST TO BE THERE.THIS IS BECAUSE THE ABSENCE OF CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE, AS A TRUE SEED OF GOD, IS THE INVITATION OF CRISES INTO YOUR LIFE. THIS IS THE ACTUAL TRUTH.

26.       Whatever you do not support, you are against it. You can tell me, “I do not know.” “I do not know” is not an answer. You are either for me or against me. You can tell me with your mouth that “I support you, but I cannot come to your meeting.” You do not support me.

27.       THIS IS BECAUSE THE EVIDENCE THAT YOU SUPPORT CHRIST MUST BE THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE. YOU CANNOT CLAIM THAT YOU POSSESS CHRIST-LIKE NATURE AND, AT THE SAME TIME, BE HAVING CRISES.

28.       So, these two things cannot happen. One is conflicting with the other. There is civil unrest. And one must always be the winner. Are you getting the Message?

29.       So, at every point in time, God can never wrestle with his own. Any spirit that would make you to be boiling inside, that spirit is not from God.

30.       In a day, wherever you find yourself, people limit the presence of God down to only their Fellowship.

31.       Now, that we have been forced to stay in our homes, let me know whether you can now limit yourself to this particular area, In this side of my room, God is not here.It is only in this area that we form as our Fellowship venue that Christ exists.”

32.       Maybe, if they go to their other room, they can do any other thing, but when they come to the sitting room, they cannot because it is claimed to be their Fellowship center.

33.       SO, PEOPLE LIMIT THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST. BUT IF, AS A CHILD OF GOD, YOU ARE NOT INVITING CHRIST, YOU ARE INDIRECTLY SENDING AN INVITATION TO WHAT? CRISES; MAKING YOUR HEART A FLOODGATE OF CRISES. 

34.       YOU SEE THAT PERSON; WHEREVER HE PUTS HIS HANDS, NOTHING WORKS FOR HIM. NOT BECAUSE HE IS NOT TRYING TO DO WELL, BUT BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY FORCES ACTING AGAINST HIS PROGRESS.

35.       MANY FORCES ACTING AGAINST HIS SUCCESS. MANY FORCES ARE ACTING AGAINST EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM. WHERE ARE THOSE FORCES COMING FROM? FROM THE INDIVIDUAL HIMSELF.

36.       We are still talking about one particular thing, when you do not allot that particular time to who? To Christ.

37.       You can claim to be busy doing everything. God is seeing everything. If you want to make out a time for God, you can still make it out.

38.       You can create every circumstance for you to do what?Praise God. It was because of that that Paul and Silas, even in the midst of troubles; even when they were locked up, the Bible says they sang, they prayed and they clapped their hands.

39.       There was a difference between them and those other prisoners in the same prison with them because automatically,Christ has been invited to their own problem.

40.       And what did the Scripture say? That gate was opened. Hence, we sing [Paul and Silas, they prayed. After praying, they sang. After singing, the holy ghost came down]

41.       This is why we sing this song. Why? they sent an invitation and they attracted God.

42.       [25]And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. [26]And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. ...... [35]And when it was day, the magistrates sent the sergeants, saying, Let those men go. [36]And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul, The magistrates have sent to let you go : now therefore depart, and go in peace. [Acts 16:25 – 26, 35 – 36 KJV]

43.       As for Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, immediately they expressed that faith, that faith automatically became an invitation to Christ at that same moment.

[16]Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. [17]If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. [18]But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.[Daniel 3:16 - 18]

44.       It was the invitation the centurion gave  tothe Almighty by anchoring his faith that a Word from you. It did not say the same time tomorrow or the same time next week, but at that same second that Word was being proclaimed.This is because he (the centurion, the soldier) has invited Christ with his heart.

45.       The assurance that Christ lives in you as a child of God is your faith that is being expressed in God on a daily basis.  This is the only assurance that we do hear people sing that they are always moving together with their God.

46.       How have you given yourself to God to make sure that when you invite Christ to your home, that Christ can pay attention?

47.       Hence, we hear God saying “Do not be among the people that will invite God in time of crises. They only know God when they are not feeling fine and when everything is working contrary to them.

48.       But the moment that condition becomes better; when everything becomes rosy (flourishing) once more, the individual automatically does what? Recants the Faith and exhibits his original true nature.

49.       That is why we refer to that as what? Momentary faith. A faith that revolves around a that condition. A faith that revolves around the problem. A faith that is being determined by the fulfilment of the promise of God to you.

50.       The person only believes God when things are moving on very well. The moment things work contrary to the way he expects or contrary to the way God spoke at first concerning it, you see the person manifesting his original nature.

51.       Remember the topic.An unbeliever is A burden to himself. So, you are not a burden to the Pastor or a burden to your husband or a burden to your parents.

52.       You are a burden to yourself because there will be a time when these Messages (teachings) you set aside as little things; there will be a time when you will cherish it. There will come a time when you will desire it. And then, that time, it will no longer be there.

53.       JUST USE YOUR MIND TO EXAMINE (OR IMAGINE) THE CONDITION OF THAT PERSON WHEN TRANSLATION OCCURS, AND THAT PERSON DID NOT PARTAKE IN IT.

54.       WHAT TYPE OF MESSAGE DO YOU THINK THAT THE PERSON CAN RECALL THAT CAN CHANGE THAT FATE? IS THERE ANYTHING? EVEN IF THE PERSON CRIES OUT BLOOD FROM HIS EYES OR TEARS HIS FLESH, WILL IT CHANGE ANYTHING?

55.       So, when the individual thinks that everything is working well for him, God is paused or placed on hold. God is parked in the cooler. God is Parked because things are working our fine.

56.       But the moment things sharply take a deep curve, the individual automatically recants his Faith.

57.       Hence, we will continue experiencing too many falling away from the Faith until the day our immortal bodies are given to us individually.

58.       Therefore, as this lockdown God has started continues because this lockdown is a prophecy that has fulfilled which is tied to our departure, we are not praying against it.

59.       AS WE CONTINUE WORSHIPPING GOD STAYING IN OUR HOMES, WE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE MANY DEPARTING FROM THE TRUTH. MANY FAMILIES! BECAUSE THEY ALL TIMED GOD. THEY FIXED GOD TO A TIME; LIMITING GOD TO A TIME. 

60.       What does it take for one to be an unbeliever? It takes a very little thing. Any little disobedience, after you have obeyed for a long time instantly makes you an unbeliever.  Are we getting the message?

61.       What changed the eternal destiny of the man on the cross? Was it not the belief (that instant belief, that instant confession) to the revealed name in his age that attracted his automatic entry into heaven? He secured a ticket immediately.

62.       [42]And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. [43]And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise. [Luke 23:42 – 43 KJV]

63.       So, it does not take one million years for you to change what the problem is. This is because, with the words of the mouth, we can say “I am not an unbeliever; I am a this. And I am that.”

64.       You havestrategies or list of things you can do to become a believer or an unbeliever. No! It takes little things to disobey God.  Amen

 

I AM THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. I make peace and I make war. Life and death are in the Hands of Almighty God. What is your claim then? What can you claim to do? Can you save your life? Even if you want to commit suicide, if God does not sign it, you will not commit it. You will change your mind or somebody will redeem you. Whatever God has never approved will never happen.

HOW HAVE YOU GIVEN YOURSELF TO GOD?[2]

 

How low have we condescended to men of low estate? Preached on 8th October, 1996; Page 23 from verse 10. Let us be very very careful now that we are worshipping a living God. This is the hour we have to tell ourselves the naked truth. ...

2.           No time to pamper the truth. No time to paint it in a way that will make it to look rosy. Let us say it the way it is supposed to be.Are getting the Message? Let us do what? Say it the way it is supposed to be.

3.           ... This is not the time to pamper people. ...So, the time is over when we paint or pamper the truth so that the person will not be hurt.

4.           This is because, if we do not tell ourselves the truth, the unbeliever will think that he is doing us a service. This is the truth.

5.           You think we are harbouring you because we cannot do without you; or you think that we are afraid of you, not knowing that God has spotted you.

6.           In the new year Message of 2019, God said that He will mark the person and allow him to remain in the church. In the same way God is marking unbelievers, thatmark of ownership has been going on from that 2019 till now.

7.           God is doing what? Marking the Elect so that now they are still here on earth; He can know how many we are that are going to heaven. It is not a matter of “Son of Man, am I going to heaven? Almighty God, am I going? Is my name there”. It is arrant stupidity.

8.           It is just like when it was time for Judas to fulfil the prophecy, the proclamation went forth that any person who puts his hand in the same plate or pot with the master is the person so that the prophecy will come to pass.

9.           Still, he did not repent and he was still asking “Master. Am I the one?”.So, there was now an anointing higher than him just for the person to fulfil that prophecy from God.

10.       [21]And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. [22]And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I? [23]And he answered and said, He that dippethhis hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me. [Matthew 26:21 – 23 KJV. Also in]

11.       So, if you watch many of them right now, you will notice that they do not know what they are doing. They do not know whether they are believing or not.

12.       Most of them even do not download Messages at all. They do not talk of playing the Messages. That is why most of them are no longer buying Messages again to show you how few we are that are following God.

13.       This is because as the days go by, so is our zeal going low. It is expected of us that our zeal should be high. God is saying that we should restore that our first zeal;The first love.

14.       But in many, it is dying down because it has dawned on the individual that he/she is not a part of what God is doing.

15.       Restiveness sets in and listening to Messages becomes burdensome. Even reading a Message becomes burdensome. And discussing the Messagesbecomes burdensome.

16.       Family altar becomes very tiring. Fellowship with Brethren becomes “I-don’t-care” attitude because the person has lost the original zeal (the first love).

17.       So, why are we reminding ourselves of all these things? The tIME IS past WHEN WE THOUGHT THAT WORSHIPPING GOD MEANS DOING GOD A SERVICE. NO!

18.       WHEther YOU WORSHIP GOD OR NOT, GOD IS GOD, AND IT IS WELL WITH GOD. IT IS WELL WITH GOD. GOD CAN DO WITHOUT YOU AND I. BUT YOU CAN NEVER DO WITHOUT GOD. 

19.       Brethren, are we getting the Message? So, it takes you and I. It takes Brother Ugo. It takes Pastor Wisdom. IT TAKES ME TO INVITE GOD. GOD CANNOT COME TO BEG YOU.

20.       In the Message of Sunday, when we were explaining it, we typed the Message with an example. If Apostle is going to Onitsha and Brother Lucky is equally going to Onitsha, And Apostle has a car. And he says to Brother Lucky “Okay. Come, let us go together”.

21.       If Brother Lucky is really in need of that help, what he will do is to be the one to look for the Apostle.

22.       He will be the one to tell him, “What time are we departing? What time are we going to move? Can I sleep over in your house sir? Can I take my bag and sleep over here?

23.       This is because Bro Lucky is the one that will benefit more for that help. Whether you board a public vehicle or private vehicle, it is already comfortable for the Apostle.Are you getting the message?

24.       He (The Apostle) has already purposed that he will drive himself at his own pace (and at his own comfort) down to Onitsha, but you know the inconveniences you are going to face on the highway and he then offers you a help.It takes you to walk up. I do not know if you are getting this Message?

25.       It takes us to walk up to that privilege. You will be the one to desire it. That is why God said, “Once I see the desire in the person (desire to stand away from that evil nature; the desire to give himself over to Christ), I will give the person a helping hand; with the clause “As long as the desire is there.”

26.       HE (GOD) SAID, “THERE IS NO LIMIT TO THE extent I WILL GO TO REDEEM AN ELECT, EVEN IF IT MEANS GOING TO THE DEEPEST HELL FIRE TO OFFER MY HAND.

27.       SO, IF WE ARE NOT BELIEVING, THE BURDEN IS FOR US. AN UNBELIEVER IS A BURDEN TO HIMSELF. AMEN.

28.       God must create an opportunity. If you are saying grace of God, it does not mean the permission to destroy yourself. But the grace of God allows you to work yourself into Christ by obeying his word.

29.       THE GRACE OF GOD DOES WHAT? ALLOWS YOU TO WORK YOURSELF INTO CHRIST. SO, ARE WE SEEING IT? IT IS NOT THE PARENTS IN A FAMILY THAT WILL WALK INTO THEIR CHILDREN.

30.       JUST AS DADDY (THE ALMIGHTY) IS NOW; WE ARE THE ONES THAT WILL BE STRIVING EVERYDAY TO BE IN HIS HEART FOR GOOD.

31.       THIS IS BECAUSE, THERE IS A WAY YOU WILL BE IN HIS HEART, AND IT WILL BE FOR EVIL. YOU HAVE BEEN NOTED AND YOUR NAME MARKED ASTERISK, SO THAT THE MENTION OF THAT PERSON’S NAME BECOMES AN INSTANT PROVOCATION THAT HE (GOD) CANNOT STAND. 

32.       SO, WE ARE THE ONES DOING EVERYTHING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE IN HIS OWN GOOD BOOKS, AND THAT WE ARE FOR CHRIST’S COMMENDATION.

33.       THAT IS WHY WE DO NOT DO THINGS TO PLEASE THE WORLD. THE HIGHEST THEY CAN DO IS MOCK AND MAKE JEST OF ME. BUT WILL YOU SAVE ME WHEN I COME FACE TO FACE WITH MY GOD? DOES MY GOD KNOW YOU? DID HE SEE YOU?

34.       SO, THAT PERSON THAT WILL LEAD YOU TO HAVING PROBLEMS WITH CHRIST. THEN, ASK YOURSELF,“IS THE PERSON WORTHY OF YOUR DOING THAT THING? THERE IS NO HUMAN BEING THAT IS WORTHY OF THAT.

35.       Anything that can deprive you of eternal life, you say “This money that is not worth it. Is it what will make me go to hell fire?

36.       On the contrary, if you say, “Let me get this money first. Even at the destruction of my soul, let me do it”,is it worth it? No, it is not worth it!

 

When you hear His Word, do not harden your heart as in the day of provocation. If you are outside, struggle to come inside. If you labour to hear from Him (The Son of Man, The Elohim on two feet) directly (live), I want to say that you have chosen a good path which no man can take away from you. ... I am backing the door while I am facing the Bride. You are going to receive the last minute instruction from Me on how you will enter that Paradise. You may stay too long at this Gate! For no unbeliever will enter the Gate.

WORK YOURSELF INTO CHRIST [1]

 

So, let us recognize what that thing is that the grace of God allows us to do, which is to walk ourselves into Christ by obeying Him.

2.           THERE IS A WAY YOU WILL BE OBEDIENT TO GOD TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU WILL BE AN EXAMPLE OF THE BELIEVERS. HE WILL ALWAYS TELL YOU TO LOOK AT THIS PERSON. LOOK AT THAT PERSON.

3.           LOOK AT THE COMMENDATION GOD MADE ABOUT BISHOP JOE UKPONG. WHICH MINISTER, WHICH BROTHER, WHICH FAMILY WOULD NOT LIKE THIS TYPE OF COMMENDATION TO BE MADE ABOUT HIS OR HER FAMILY?

4.           DEFINITELY, EVERYBODY WOULD WANT THAT TYPE OF COMMENDATION BECAUSE IT IS A COMMENDATION COMING FROM THE ALMIGHTY HIMSELF.

5.           HE HAS BEEN PROVED; HE HAS TESTED, AND HE HAS GOTTEN COMMENDATION BEFORE CHRIST AS PROOF THAT HE HAS INVITED CHRIST.

6.           AS WHAT? A PROOF THAT HE HAS INVITED CHRIST AND, CHRIST HAS ACCEPTED THE INVITATION AND MADE AN EVERLASTING HOME IN HIS HEART. AN EVERLASTING HOME IN THE HEART OF ALL HIS FAMILY MEMBERS.

7.           HENCE, NO MATTER THE RIDICULE THEY GET FROM THE WORLD, IT IS NOTHING TO BE COMPARED WITH THE JOY THAT AWAITS THEM ON THAT VERY GLORIOUS DAY.

8.           It is based on this hope that I do not care what people say as far as I have done that service according to the will of the Almighty God. There is no other thing that can be substituted for obedience.

9.           There is no offering, no prayer, no justification, no sanctification that can be made in substitution for obedience to God.

10.       Trace it down to the Scriptures. When King Saul who thought that in bringing those animals and everything, that he will make God happy.

11.       He imagine it in his heart, “When we must have brought all these animals. He would be happy if I carry this to show him.”

12.       What is the name of that Prophet again? Samuel. “Once he sees it, he will be happy. So, let me give him goat. Let me give him cow.”

13.       So, when the Prophet arrived there, he asked,“O King, did you do according to what God said?”The King answered “Yes”

14.       But then the spirit of God touched the goat that had been silent and the prophet heard the bleating of both the sheep andthe goat.

15.       The prophet asked “O King Saul, what have you done?” Because Saul always wanted to justify himself and prove God wrong, he said “No, I made it so that when I come back, it would be for burnt offering unto God for securing me from the war.

16.       The Prophet said, “No, the word of God said, Go there and destroy everything (the living and non-living), all creatures and human beings. What have you done?”The Prophet then told Saul that obedience to God is better than sacrifice.

17.       So, honestly, that King Saul wanted to us it in appreciation to God for leading him through the war and everything. And if you check it, the motive was good, but the action wat wrong?

18.       Yes!This is because God said, “It is wrong.” So, it is upon that backdrop that I say that there is nothing we can give to God in substitution to (or as a waiver for) obedience.

19.       This is the standard set for all human beings on earth. This is the only Message that we preach. If Christ says, “Stop there”, you are stopping there. If he says “Stay there”, you are staying there. Hallelujah! Amen.

20.       So, this is the only way you can really know if you are a seed of God or if you are not a seed of God. The grace of God means allowing you, for that privilege has been given to us for us to now interact with God.

21.       Just with a phone call, and you have spoken to the Almighty. “Daddy, this is my problem. Daddy, this this this”, andHe will just heal you. “This is this”, and He would grant it. It is what? A privilege.

22.       The Message is now saying that this privilege should help you to work yourself into Christ.

23.       Take for example. You do not know that governor of the state, but you happen see that your best friend is now the Secretary to the State Government.

24.       And an invitation was served for a dinner and the governor gave the Secretary to the Government of the State the invitation for five persons that will stay in that same corner.

25.       If I have not been in contact with the governor, that invitation has become an express ticket for me to meet the Governor one-on-one. I must dress knowing full well that I cannot have that opportunity again.

26.       So, even if I have a problem of being jobless, I am going with my CV. You would come prepared because you want to achieve something.

27.       So, the highest that person (your friend) can do for you is to invite you to attend that occasion and sit on that table. Whatever you are going to do or say that will attract the Governor to do something in favor of you, lies in your hands. This is how this Bridal Faith is.

28.       So, the highest you can give your brother is to do what? Carry him into Christ. He himself will have to automatically work himself into the heart of the Almighty.

29.       Hence, you now give the person the power to become a son (a king) over his father’s heritage.

30.       So, grace is what that person expressed. Grace is extending that invitation saying “Brother Lucky, follow me.There is a place I got invitation, let us go for the dinner night organized by the governor at Dome.”

31.       This is the highest I can do. The cloth you would put on is not my business. The shoes you would ear is not my business. It is not for me to tell you to come along with your CV and other necessary things.

32.       You should have those things at the back of your mind because I have extended the offer to you from the Governor. This is the highest thing I could do for you.

33.       So, with that privilege, whatever you can do to walk yourself into the Governor’s heart, is now left in your hands.

34.       In Christ, we have equal opportunities. That is why we arecapable to do all things, but not all things are convenient, fitting or good for us do.

35.       “We are allowed to do anything,” so they say. That is true, but not everything is good. “We are allowed to do anything”–but not everything is helpful. [1 Corinthians 10:23 GNB]

36.       So, the grace of God should give you the insight of everything that you have to do to work yourself into Christ, and which is nothing but obedience to his Word in all things.

37.       There should not be a restriction on your level of obedience to Christ.I can obey God in spiritual matters.

38.       If I want to choose a business or go to school or even the university I want to go, If I will not tell the Almighty,“Let me look for a university I will attend”, that is limiting God. Is that person a child of God then? No.

39.       This is because you have limited the power of God. You have apportioned and said this is the extent God will be free to go.But it should not be so!

40.       So, the only thing is that you will make use of that grace God, which He has extended to you. Make an indelible footprint that will make the Governor want to know who you are and what you do for a living.

41.       Tomorrow, if I now meet the Governor, he will say, “This friend I met on so so and so day.” You are no longer working under me.

42.       You are no longer giving me the message that the Governor saidI should give you. You now getting direct messages from the Governor.

43.       So, the Governor does not need to tell me “Today, I will call that your friend”. The Governor can call you anytime and say, “Mr. Lucky, where are you? I need you in my house now.”

44.       And, I cannot hold him guilty for not telling me before going to the Governor who called him. This is the truth if Brother Lucky begins to do those things that please the Governor

45.       I am the person that introduced him. Maybe, I was feeling nonchalant or I am feeling that I already have my position as the Secretary of the State Government. That is all that matters.

46.       I feel my position is okay. I feel that the ground where I am standing is still strong, not knowing that I should check very well.And if tomorrow, the Governor starts needing his services, I cannot challenge it. Are you getting the message?

47.       So, the highest the person can do for you now is to bring you into Christ. All that you will do to win the approval of Christ lies in your own hand.

48.       That is why you cannot say before God that “It is my father that caused it. It is my mother that did this. It is my church that did this. It is my Pastor.” No!

49.       This is because God knows and believes that you should be able to know what to do. The sinner on the cross, did he consult anybody before making that decision?

50.       It is the reason why God said that whenever you come to the presence of God, try as much as possible to make sure that you are not seeing anybody apart from yourself.

51.       When you begin to see many people, you will start comparing yourself with which you will start to render that correction is useless.

52.       You will now look like that one that went to confess his or her sins, but then heard the sins of another person and turned to say, “What? I thought it was only me. Okay, till tomorrow.” This is because he came with the aim of comparing himself with another.

 

After all, it is eternal life, it is not negotiable, it is personal, and it has no second chance. You miss it, you have missed it. For that reason you do not gamble with your eternal destiny. Now I go further. Follow me gradually; don’t be in a haste because I am taking my time, believing one thing, that eternal life is not negotiable. It is going to be a very costly mistake for one to allow himself to be fooled or deceived at this closing hour we are in, when we know time is no more.

WORK YOURSELF INTO CHRIST [2]

 

This is the time you see yourself and your fault just as I am now preaching this Message, seeing myself, my flaws and my faults.

2.           We all go individually to our different places of work. You can hide everything from everybody, but you cannot hide it from yourself. That which you did at your place of work, you cannot hide from yourself.

3.           When you are in the presence of God and a Message goes to that direction, it will stand before you there either condemning or justifying you that moment. Does it happen or not?

4.           That is why even individual would say “I heard my name in the Message.”This is because that action and character which he or she thinks God did not know has been exposed. Brethren, this is what blinds a fool.

5.           There is no place you can hide that God will not see you. The Scriptures made us to understand that.

6.           So, anyone that thinks that running away to anywhere means that God did not see him or God does not stay abroad, “Let me try and run away from Nigeria”, it means that you do not even believe anything for you to believe that outside Nigeria, God is not there.

7.           Who is now there causing all the troubles in all the world? Now, there has been another record of another disease which has not been announced very well but I can read it out.

8.           Brother David sent it to me. I will read it out so that it can be in the tape. It was sent to me by Deacon David Mbah. It says “officials warn of unknown pneumonia in Kazakhstan that is deadlier than coronavirus. Chinese officials warn of an unknown pneumonia that is in Kazakhstan that is deadlier than coronavirus. That it is a pneumonia.

9.           And we should note that God said do not expect anything to get better. That it will be addition upon addition.

10.       He (God) is going to relax the measures and know what this covid-19 has produced in the lives of many so that all those that suppressed their feelings, as a result of covid-19, by now I believe their true nature has been made manifest. And this is pure truth.

11.       This is because there are people that have the hope that “Yes, when this thing is over, we will reopen our fellowship centres. At least, the schools have been told to open. Movements have continued.”

12.       Some people were expecting fellowship to resume, not until it was announced that there would not be anything like Fellowship as the Household of God in Onitsha again.

13.       That was when it now dawned on them that “Yes. So, this is true.” That person’s original nature will then come out because all what he is hiding, there is nobody there to check him again.

14.       Nobody is there to ask him, “Why are you doing this?”  He becomes a free moral agent. That which he believes to be the truth is what he will be manifesting.

15.       This is because your life is a reflection of what you definitely believe.

16.       You will not tell me that you believe in the devil, and that you do not believe that God exists, but if you want anything you say, “Please, God give me.”  You say, God please guide me.” And you still say that God does not exist. It is not possible.

17.       So, all these teachings are to make us understand that these are the privileges offered to us by grace. We do not force God to give us Message.He gives us these Messages according to His will and bountiful mercy. This is what grace has brought for us.

18.       I am just trying to type what this Message is saying, that grace is offered to you. The grace is offered to us as a privilege and as an opportunity to walk ourselves into Christ. So, let us not see it as our right for one day. Amen.

19.       Proverbs chapter 5 verse 12 through 14. (Living Bible). and you say “Oh, if only I had listened! If only I had not demanded my own way!

20.       Oh why wouldn’t I take advice? Why was I so stupid? For now, I must face public disgrace.For now, I must face what? Pubic disgrace.

21.       Proverbs 5:12 – 14. Amplified And you say, How I hated instruction and discipline…And you say what? How I hated instruction and discipline.

22.       It is because of that burden of iniquity. He is now bearing the weight of himself on his body. God has visited the person with the level of iniquity which he has acted. Then he will say, “how I hated instruction and discipline.”

23.       “And you say how I hated instruction and discipline, and my heart despised reproof! And my what? ...my heart despised reproof.

24.       Every attempt to correct him when he was going astray was futile. He heard none because he hated what? Reproof. Let us not be that kind of individual, because this is typing something.

25.       I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers nor submitted and consented to those who instructed me. Notethisarea, Brethren. Neither have I done what? ...submitted and consented to those who instructed me.

26.       [The extent and boldness of] my sin involved almost all evil [in the estimation] of the congregation and the community. Let us take note.

27.       [The extent and boldness of] my sin involved almost all evil [in the estimation] of the congregation and the community.

28.       Can you see what the individual is saying? This is because that burden of iniquity (that which he has been doing thinking that God does not take record)has been brought to God’s judgement.

29.       Look at what they person is now saying. At that point, all these confessions, can it save that person from getting the punishment for his disobedience?

30.       The answer is no, for there is no retribution that will save him in all these lamentations because he is doing it when there is no longer time.

31.       That is why God said, “Now, when you hear His Word, harden not your heart as in the days of provocation.Do not harden your heart while you hear those Messages.

32.       That change can be done in my life today. That decision can be made this second and it can change everything about us.

33.       Yes, look at what the person is now saying. Look at the lamentations. Look at the regrets. Put yourself in the picture. Make a picture (an imagination) of when translation occurs and the individual is left here.

34.       All the things the person is saying now, do you think that whatever he is saying can be reversed? Do you think it can reverse the person’s eternal fate at that point in time?  No.

35.       Hear what he is saying. [The extent and boldness of] my sin involved almost all evil [in the estimation] of the congregation and the community.

36.       So, there is no type of evil that is not found in him. Remember when I told us about when that spirit has been checking in you.

37.       When you are being delivered from that spirit and the person does not give himself totally to God. the Scriptures said that the heart is clean but empty, justifying the book of Matthew.

38.       Can you remember, Brethren? It said that seven more dangerous spirits will take over the individual that it will become very hard for the person to be delivered.

39.       [43]But when the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, it roams through dry [arid] places in search of rest, but it does not find any. [44]Then it says, I will go back to my house from which I came out. And when it arrives, it finds the place unoccupied, swept, put in order, and decorated. [45]Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and make their home there. And the last condition of that man becomes worse than the first. So also shall it be with this wicked generation.[Matthew 12:43 – 45 AMP]

40.       God said we should avoid this second captivity of the devil. He had let you get away with the first captivity because you have realized your mistakes.So, you jumped carrying yourself over to the right lane.

41.       IT IS MUCH BETTER AND MORE USEFUL TO DIE IN THE PATHWAY OF GOD THAN TO LIVE IN THE PATHWAY OF THE DEVIL. WHAT WILL I GAIN MONETARILY OR FINANCIALLY THAT WILL STOP ME, THAT CAN SEAL MY CONSCIENCE AGAINST THE TRUTH FROM GOD? 

42.       It is the extent you have given yourself to Christ. If not, you will come back to make this lamentation.

43.       [The extent and boldness of] my sin involved almost all evil [in the estimation] of the congregation and the community.

44.       So, generally speaking, the person is saying that he became a home and dwelling place for the devil. He was a visible representation of the devil. Remember I told us that it is an invitation. He has already invited crises.

45.       You remember that when I was laying the background of the Message, I said that you must make that invitation.Whoever you give that invitation, must answer to that invitation.

46.       If a seed of God invites Christ to his affairs, Christ automatically and permanently registers his presence in the life of that seed of God.

47.       That is why we have accidents and we have big problems. And at the mention of that name, we will be delivered from all those evils. In the same way, the child of the devil also makes an invitation.

48.       NONE OF THESE SPIRITS COME WITHOUT YOUR INVITATION. SO, YOU ARE EITHER INVITING THEM BY YOUR ACTION POSITIVELY OR NEGATIVELY.

49.       THE POSITIVE ACTION YOU EXHIBIT ON A DAILY BASIS IS AN INVITATION OF CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE. AND THE NEGATIVE ACTION THAT I TILT TO ON A DAILY BASIS, IS AN INVITATION OF CRISES INTO MY LIFE.

50.       For this person to make this lamentation that he is having all the sin that is in him. how can you now tell me that the person is not having crises in his life?

51.       This is because when these things start happening, progress stops. Progress academically, financially, spiritually, all round progress is halted because the individual is waging a war that is greater than him. Who caused the war? The individual.

52.       Proverbs 5:12 – 14 Amplified. [12]And you say, How I hated instruction and discipline, and my heart despised reproof!

53.       [13]I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers nor submitted and consented to those who instructed me.

54.       [14][The extent and boldness of] my sin involved almost all evil [in the estimation] of the congregation and the community.

55.        Proverbs chapter 5 verse 21 Living Bible. For God is closely watching you, and he weighs carefully everything you do.”

56.       Amplified. [21]For the ways of man are directly before the eyes of the Lord, and He [Who would have us live soberly, chastely, and godly] carefully weighs all man's goings.

57.       God watches all our paths, all our coming in and all our going out. So, thinking that God is not seeing that thing which you do, you cannot call God a liar. He sees everything. He watches over everything at the same time.

58.       Proverbs 5:21 (Living Bible). For God is closely watching you, and he weighs carefully everything you do.

59.       And he weighs carefully. God weighs carefully. So, you cannot call God a liar. God weighs everything that we do (all the good things and all the evil things that we do). He is weighing all.

60.       God watches closely everything that we are doing to make sure we do not walk outside his will. WHAT IS GOD USING TO WATCH OVER US? IS IT NOT HIS WORD? IT IS THE WORD OF GOD THAT WE USE IN WATCHING AND WEIGHING OURSELVES.

You were wondering what the cloud would look like to lead a people. I have manifested. You were wondering how god could live in thick darkness. I have manifested it. You were wondering how god could live in a bright light.I have manifested it. You were wondering where there could be lily in the valley (the name of god), i have manifested the lily. Tell me what else are you looking for? I say, when god has shown you visible signs through his messenger and yet to obey Allah is difficult, what else are you expecting from him if not supreme humiliation.

BEWARE OF LAST MINUTE

MANIFESTATION OF UNBELIEF

 

Proverbs 5:14 Amplified version. [The extent and boldness of my sin]This happens when the person fails to understand that God watches him or God watches her carefully.

2.           Where we read in Amplified, God said He watches our goings and our comings. Living Bible says He watches us closely.

3.           He watches us carefully because He watches over the Elect to make sure that the Elect does not stray away. In the same way, the devil also watches his own.

4.           THAT IS WHY GOD SAID THAT WE MUST AVOID THAT SECOND CAPTIVITY OF THE DEVIL. THIS IS BECAUSE AN IGBO ADAGE SAYS THAT THE RAT DOES NOT EAT WHAT BELONGS TO SOMEBODY THAT IS WIDE AWAKE.

5.           THE DEVIL WILL MAKE SURE HE PRESERVES HIS OWN BECAUSE HE HAS ADORNED THE PATHWAY OF ERROR TO EVERY LIVING SOUL.

6.           Proverbs 5:12 – 14 (Amplified version). [12]And you say, How I hated instruction and discipline, and my heart despised reproof! ... Thatis when the person must have made that costly mistake.

7.           Remember, we have the message titled, Beware of the last-minute Manifestation of unbelief. If we can see that Message, please bring it out.  There must be something in it that God wants us to see.

8.           THE MESSAGE SAID THAT WE SHOULD BE CAREFUL OF THE LAST MINUTE MANIFESTATION OF UNBELIEF, WHEN THE PERSON THINKS THAT IT DOES NOT COUNT.

9.           THIS IS BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT GOD WILL RECORD UNTO YOU AS THAT AUTOMATIC ASSURANCE OF SALVATION.

10.       IT MIGHT EVEN BE WHEN THAT PROBLEM MIGHT BE TOO MUCH FOR YOU TO BEAR, AND THAT NEGATIVE WORD WILL CHANGE YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY.

11.       BUT I PRAY THAT IT CAN NEVER BE OUR PORTION. AMEN.

12.       So, watch what the person is now saying when he has made the costliest mistake of his life for which he cannot be saved. I do not even know what to call all these lamentations. Can all these statements of regret save the person at that time? The answer is NO!

13.       Proverbs chapter 5 from verse 12 through 14. [12]And you say, How I hated instruction and discipline, and my heart despised reproof! [13]I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers nor submitted and consented to those who instructed me.

14.       Can you imagine? He has not obeyed, submitted or even consented to those who instructed him. Consenting means agreeing and accepting in a humble way without complaining, without grumbling and without murmuring.

15.       [14][The extent and boldness of] my sin involved almost all evil [in the estimation] of the congregation and the community.That is where I want to stop.

16.       SO, YOU CAN SEE THAT THE PERSON IS NOW REGRETTING, AND THIS IS BECAUSE, AT THAT TIME, THE SCALES HAVE FALLEN OFF HIS EYES.

17.       SO, HE NOW KNEW HOW CONCEITED HE WAS; HOW HARD HE WAS. A VERY HARD PERSON. A VERY BAD GUY. ALL THESE THINGS HAVE FOLLOWED HIM TO THE JUDGEMENT THRONE.

18.       SO, ALL THE REGRETS WILL NOT SAVE HIM. BECAUSE HE HAS REPENTED WHEN THERE WAS NO LONGER TIME.

19.       WE SHOULD GUIDE OURSELVES AGAINST THIS ERROR SO THAT WE DO NOT MAKE SUCH LAMENTATIONS AT THE END OF OUR MINISTRY IN THIS FAITH, WHICH IS THE RAPTURE OR THE TRANSLATION OF OUR MORTAL BODIES.

20.       So, let us keep on believing. And let us keep forging ahead with this truth, so that it will remain well with every one of us, knowing full well that an unbeliever is a burden to himself, whichever family you are hiding yourself.

21.       God said it in the new year Messagethat He will do what? EXPOSE THEM. So, God is no longer destroying you because of the sins of your father or because of the iniquity of your mother or the iniquity of your brother.

22.       God is destroying you or destroying me because of our own iniquity personally. That you live with Brother Ugo does not mean that God will visit Brother Ugo’s iniquity on you or visit you with Ugo’s iniquity. No!

23.       WHICHEVER TREATMENT YOU ARE GETTING FROM GOD, IS A REFLECTION OF HOW WE HAVE OBEYED HIM. THIS IS BECAUSE YOU CANNOT OBEY GOD AND INVITE GOD IN YOUR CASE WITHOUT GOD MAKING A PERMANENT ABODE IN YOUR HEART. PUT YOUR HAND IN THE SCRIPTURES, IT IS NOT THERE! 

24.       BECAUSE YOU OBEYED GOD AS AN ELECT, CALL HIM IN THE TIME OF TROUBLES AND HE WILL RESPOND IMMEDIATELY, BECAUSE YOU ARE A FAITHFUL BELIEVER.

25.       There is something I want to add which is line with the Message we heard tonight.

26.       James chapter 1 verse 21. Living Bible. “So, get rid of all that is wrong in your life, both inside and outside, and humbly be glad for the wonderful message we have received, for it is able to save our souls as it takes hold of our hearts.” Amen. 

27.       LATE US TAKE NOTE OF ALL WE HAVE HEARD THIS NIGHT. WE SHOULD NOT LIMIT OURSELVES INTHE EXTENT WE OBEY GOD.

28.       And also, let us know that it is grace that is giving us this message. It is grace that is making us to have this wonderful Fellowship.

29.       And look at what the Message told us. Let this be our watchword for the night. This is the grace of the God which is the privilege given to us to work ourselves into Christ.

30.       And there is no way we can work ourselves into Christ if not through obedience to His word.

31.       On this note, I say Remain blessed Brethren. As we sleep this night, may this Message guide us.

32.       May we ruminate on the Message, and may it yield the right fruit in me and our individual hearts.

33.       May God lead us in all our ways and see us through. This is our earnest prayer for we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
