EVERY CROWN CALLS FOR DEFENSE

 

THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE, PART 1 VOL 2; Preached on 27th December 1997 on THE SON OF MAN’s 40th Birthday; Page 40 from verse 40.

2.           40To God be the glory. How many still loves me? After starving you and keeping you here only to fulfill scripture that “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

3.           That was because I was not eating and they were not eating.And they were sitting down, but I was standing up. They were writing and I continued talking and leading them in praises. Look at, how many Messages? Check all of them. Check the number.

4.           41If I stay here till tomorrow, you will stay here till tomorrow because there is a higher anointing that is hitting down any spirit that will stir you people to hunger.

5.           Yes! And it happens whenever THE SON OF MAN is around. He lifts up a high anointing, higher than that spirit that will cause you to begin to complain of food or this and that.

6.           Who will always be complaining when the Message is going on, “I want to eat, I am hungry”Mixed-multitudes!

7.           They are the people that fill their bags with groundnut and many things. They come with biscuits. The come with pure water. Yet, these things are not enough for them. The mouth is making a continuous movement all through the time.

8.           AND WHEN YOU ARE EATING WHEN THE MESSAGE IS GOING ON, YOU ARE LOSING CONCENTRATION.

9.           That is why in a class room, if a lecturer is very, very observant, the moment he sees you moving your mouth with whatever you are eating, he sends you out of the class. This is because it indicates lack of interest. You do not have any interest in the ongoing course.

10.        He will say, “Go and eat. If you are hungry, go and eat.”YOU CAN NEVER BE EATING WITHOUT LOSING CONCENTRATION.

11.        What if in your own bench, everybody is eating like Igwe Amobi, Amankem and Shedrack Onah? Expertseaters! Adults that have families. He will come with a bag of biscuit and chin-chin.

12.        So they will be flickering their eyes. If you hit him, the ones in his hand will fall down. What will children do then?

13.        And it is a spirit. Before you know it, people will be emulating it. Watch the peoplethat stop at the gate. You will think that they are buying those things for the little children. They are buying for themselves.

14.        They will then go and stay beside the window, where they will be eating. Promise will start learning it because he is an expert in learning evil. For Fellowship, he will load his bag with kola, coconut and everything.

15.        He does not know that I see him from My seat. And he will be flickering his eyes. Does he not know? I am telling you the truth. I see him from My seat.

16.        You cannot be doing that thing and concentrate. Why I do not disturb Myself is because I know where I picked him. I know where I picked him.

17.        IT IS IN THE POWER OF HIS HEART AND THE POWER OF HIS HAND AS AN ADULT TO YIELD TO CHRIST OR TO SAY NO.

18.        BUT YOU MUST FULFIL ONE THING. YOU ARE EITHER A PARTAKER OF PARADISE OR ONE THAT WILL CARRY TESTIMONY TO THE HEATHENS.

19.        A PARTAKER OF PARADISE OR A WITNESS OF WHAT TOOK PLACE. You will then preach to them about what took place.And they will ask you why you were left behind.

20.        It is a must that there are people who will tell the world what took place. Somebody must tell another. It is a must that somebody must tell another person what took place.

21.        Well, I do not know.If you choose to be the person, you will be the person. This is because the remedy lies in your hands.

22.        GOD HAS GIVEN US THE TRUTH. IT IS NOW LEFT FOR YOU TO TAKE THE DECISION, WHEN YOU STOP RESISTING THE TRUTH AND THEN TURN OVER TO A NEW LEAF. THAT IS, IF YOUR SPIRIT HAS NOT BEEN CAPTURED THE SECOND TIME.

23.        ASSUMING THE SPIRIT HAS BEEN THERE BEFORE, GOD HAS GIVEN YOU THE WAY TO SCALE THE PAST AND ESCAPE.

24.        BUT IF YOU HAD AT ANY TIME ESCAPED AND EVENTUALLY YOU WERE HELD CAPTIVE THERE AGAIN, HEAVEN AND EARTH BEAR ME WITNESS, THAT YOUR SPIRIT WILL NEVER BE RELEASED. IT WILL REMAIN TRAPPED.

25.        THAT IS WHY YOUR BODY WILL BE IN THE FELLOWSHIP AND YOUR SPIRIT WILL BE IN A PROTECTIVE CUSTODY. YOUR SPIRIT IN A PROTECTIVE CUSTODY.

26.        I am not saying it from a hideout. I know where I am standing. And I know what I am talking.

27.        THAT IS WHY YOU CAN JOKE WITH ANYBODY, BUT NOT WITH SATAN. YOU CAN JOKE WITH ANYBODY, BUT NOT WITH SATAN. SATAN DOES NOT MEAN WELL TO ANYBODY.

28.        THE ONLY PERSON THE DEVIL CAN NEVER GRIP FIRMLY IS THE ELECT. BUT ANYBODY GOD WANTS TO BRING INTO PARADISE COMPASSIONATELY IS IN DANGER. YOU ARE IN DANGER.

29.        YOU ARE IN DANGER IN THE SENSE THAT ANY DAY YOU STOP FOLLOWING; ANY DAY YOUR SPIRIT IS DRAWN BACK; ANY DAY YOU BECOME UNCOMFORTABLE STAYING WITH THE CHILDREN OF GOD, TRULY SPEAKING, YOU ARE GONE.

30.        AND GOD WILL NOT SHOW YOU MERCY TWO TIMES, BEING A STRANGER. GOD CAN NEVER SHOW A STRANGER MERCY TWICE. NEVER!

31.        BUT TO THE ELECT, THE DEVIL CAN NEVER GRIP THAT PERSON. THE DEVIL WILL TROUBLE THE ELECT AND BUFFET THE ELECT ABOUT, BUT CAN NEVER GRIP THE ELECT. NO, NO, NO! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE! THIS IS BECAUSE THE HAND UPHOLDING THE ELECT IS MIGHTIER THAN THE DEVIL.

32.        Even prophet Muhammad said it that in this last day, look at what will happen, “The only people he [devil] cannot touch remains the chosen. The chosen, the elected, the purified.”

33.        39(Iblissaid: "O my Lordbecause Thou hast put me in the wrong, will make (wrong) fair-seeming to them on the earth, and will put them all in the wrong, 40"Except Thy servants among them, sincere and purified (by Thy grace)." [Surah 15:39 – 40]

34.        But the rest must be captured. So, God can never make mistakes about this matter. And that is why the number in the end will be in the minority.                       

35.        WHEN YOU ARE LISTENING TO THIS TRUTH THAT SET MEN FREE, AND YOU REFUSE TO MAKE USE OF THE OPPORTUNITY, IT THEN MEANS YOU HAVE NO HOPE AGAIN.

36.        YES! THIS IS THE GRACE; THIS IS THE SPIRIT; THIS IS THE TRUTH THAT SETS MEN FREE, AND PLACE MEN AT LIBERTY WITH GOD AND WITH THEIR FELLOW MANKIND.

37.        What is in evil that I may desire it? What is good in the devil that I may desire to live with the devil? I mean, tell Me anything that is good in the devil that will make somebody to desire to live with the devil?

38.        Those that even gave their allegiance to the devil, they know they made a mistake. That is why they guide their children never to go that way. They made sure they prevent their children from toeing that path.

39.        When Umezuluike stopped, the devil overtook him. where is he? Did you not see how the devil messed him up? Did you not see what the devil did to him?

40.        The money, did he enjoy it? His properties he bought here and there, did he enjoy it? The boast he was boasting of this and that, what happened?

41.        Look at what God said, “That he is going to be humiliated out of that office.”

42.        He [God] said, “Madam or sister! Tell your husband to resign when the ovation is still very loud, for if he fails to do so, I bet you, sooner than he thinks, he is going to be humiliated out of that office.”

43.        I repeated it before the in-laws, Barr. Ifeanyi and Onyi-Boy, at Benjamin. They wrote it down, called Sister and Sister confirmed it.

44.        They asked her, “Why did you not tell him?” Sister replied, “Why should I tell him? If I tell him, he will not even believe me.”

45.        What happened? Was he not humiliated out of the office? There was a time the ovation was still loud, but he did not go. Look at the way he was humiliated.

46.        And I made another proclamation, “The moment he is humiliated out of that office, maximum of three years, he will join his ancestors.”

47.        And it did not get to three years, he joined his ancestors. Moreso, when he was arrested, humiliated in the prison yard for committing crime and for being corrupt!

48.        This is because the devil had already captured the spirit the second time and refused to release him. Captured him the second time and refused to release him. Why?

49.        He came in by prophecy. And the prophecy did not say he was coming to serve.

50.        The prophecy said that he will come in and God will use him to tell people within his own category that we are real sons and daughters of God, and that this is the truth that is verified in the Bible. And he did it. That was the end.

51.        What can you say about Francis Nwufo? The same thing. He will come with money for him to sponsor the publication. And that is all.

52.        ONCE THE SPIRIT HAS ESCAPED, LET IT REMAIN ESCAPING. THE SECRET OF WINNING A BATTLE IS FIGHTING. FIGHTING. DO NOT THROW IN THE TOWEL WHEN YOUR OPPONENT IS STILL STANDING. Did you not hear it from Me?

53.        NO TRUE BOXER THAT IS DESIROUS OF CARRYING THE CROWN EVER THROWS IN THE TOWEL WHEN THE OPPONENT IS STILL BOUNCING AND THEN DEMOSTRATING. YOU THROW IN THE TOWEL? HE WILL GIVE YOU UPPER-CUT.

54.        Before you know it, you have a technical knockout. You have ruined your ministry. You have been fighting all years winning, but that is the last tournament where you will take world belt, and where the world will know who you are.

55.        Is that the one you are going to play with? And you know that it is going to be a do-or-die affair? Do-or-die affair.

56.        Now watch the wrestlers that are vying for that belt. Even if you pin them on the ground, strangle them, they will struggle and struggle to get up.

57.        Sometimes, they will be fainting. Yet, they are still fighting. What is motivating them? He has to carry this crown.

58.        And the moment they carry the crown, the strength comes back. Because the threat has been withdrawn, ambulance will go. He will climb up. Strength comes.

59.        And immediately he wins that battle, watch one thing that follows winning afight. The crown he is wearing, gingers him to higher heights.

60.        The crown renews the strength, increasing the strength, for he knows it is not only winning, but he will be defending it. HE WILL BE DEFENDING IT BECAUSE EVERY CROWN CALLS FOR DEFENSE.

61.        A team that carries a cup must defend the cup. And it is a shameful thing to carry a cup and then come back without the cup. You know what it means? I had it before, but you no longer have it.

62.        HOW CAN WE TRAVEL THIS FAR ONLY TO LOSE THE BATTLE? CAN GOD LOSE A BATTLE? I HAVE ALREADY WON THE BATTLE. I HAVE ALREADY WON THE BATTLE. I HAVE KEPT THE FAITH. IT IS NOW LEFT FOR YOU TO DO SAME.

63.        And that is why I am doing finishing touches. Cluster you in the house to make sure you get everything that is wrong out.

64.        I am not in haste because nobody is going to school. School days are gone. Working days gone. And we are not in the room. We are now in the parlour. This is our room and our parlour. Air is here. Light or no light.

 


 

39If you are privileged to have the Son of Man, a Man sent by God with the Sign of the supernatural, with God backing Him up, with the Almighty God inspiring Him to speak His Word, it then means we are a privileged people,...  41Please take note of it that you are a blessed people having God in person as your Teacher, as your Prophet, as your Apostle, as your Pastor, as your Evangelist, as your Deacon, as your Bishop, as your Elder, as you everything and all in all.

ONCE YOU ARE SAVED, THE GUILT OF THE PAST IS GONE

 

THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE, PART 1 VOL 2; Preached on 27th December 1997 on THE SON OF MAN’s 40th Birthday; Page 40 from verse 41 – 49.

2.           41If I stay here till tomorrow, you will stay here till tomorrow,…

3.           Nobody will complain of breakfast. If your heart is in the kitchen, for you want to go to the kitchen to finish the rice you left there last night, well, I know the spirit is also in captivity. 

4.           Yes! If you see a spirit that is in captivity, you will know. Before you know it, you will be shaking your legs. Dancing when nobody is beating the drum, because that is where your heart is.

5.           41If I stay here till tomorrow, you will stay here till tomorrow,…

6.           LET ME JUST GIVE YOU ONE THING; THE MOMENT YOU ARE SAVED, THE GUILT OF THE PAST IS GONE. THE MOMENT YOU ARE SAVED, YOU CAN HARDLY REMEMBER THE GUILT OF THE PAST.

7.           BY THEN, YOU KNOW THAT YOU HAVE BECOME A BRAND NEW INDIVIDUAL. WHEN THE GUILT OF THE PAST IS GONE, THERE IS NO DESIRE IN YOU THAT WILL MAKE YOU GO BACK TO YOUR PAST AGAIN, BECAUSE GUILT IS GONE.

8.           Joy flowing like a river. Wonderful! Wonderful, Christ is to Me. Marvelous, to Me. Saving Me from this world of sin. Yes! Guilt is gone.

9.           GUILT IS AS A RESULT OF THE PAST DEEDS. IS IT NOT TRUE? IT IS GONE! AND EVEN IN YOU, YOU KNOW IT IS GONE BECAUSE YOU ARE NOW A BRAND NEW FELLOW.

10.        BUT WHEN THERE IS SOMETHING IN YOU SUGGESTING TO YOU THAT YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME, GO BACK. GO BACK! KEEP WATCH OVER IT. KEEP WATCH OVER YOURSELF. KEEP WATCH OVER YOURSELF. THERE IS A SPIRITUAL DANGER.

11.        WHEN THE SPIRIT IS CAPTURED, THE ENTITY CALLED “A MAN” IS CAPTURED. ONCE THE SPIRIT IS IN CAPTIVITY, YOU ARE IN CAPTIVITY.

12.        SO, THEY WENT TO PHYSICAL CAPTIVITY, OUR OWN IS SPIRITUAL CAPTIVITY.

13.        YOU CAN BE HERE AND YOUR HEART IS IN BABYLON. YOU CAN BE HERE AND YOUR HEART IS IN THE WORLD. YOU CAN BE HERE AND YOUR HEART CAN BE ANYWHERE. YOUR MIND CAN BE ANYWHERE.

14.        BUT ANYWHERE YOUR MIND IS, THAT IS WHERE YOU ARE. WHEREVER THE SPIRIT OF MAN IS RESIDING, THAT IS WHERE THE MAN IS LIVING. THAT IS YOUR ABODE.

15.        WHEREVER YOUR SPIRIT IS RESIDING; WHEREVER YOUR SPIRIT IS FINDING REST; WHEREVER YOUR SPIRIT IS POINTING YOU TO, THAT IS EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE.

16.        YOU CAN PHYSICALLY BE HERE BUT YOU ARE NOT WITH US. THE SPIRIT IS AWAY.

17.        IF YOUR SPIRIT IS IN HEAVEN, YOU ARE IN PARADISE. AND THE JOY OF PARADISE WILL FILL YOUR HEART. NOTHING IN THIS WORLD WILL UPSET YOU BECAUSE YOU KNOW YOU ARE LEAVING EVERYTHING.

18.        You must leave everything. Not only by death. Even by translation. How can you live in a house made with hands? When fire will devour the whole earth, will it spare this house?

19.        When God is coming to make the whole thing anew; a new heaven and a new earth with new people.

20.        [17]For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. [Isaiah 65:17]

21.        [22]For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain. [Isaiah 66:22]

22.        God transformed with a new heart, new spirit. Is it not the Bible? “I will give you a new heart, I will give you a new spirit. You will be a brand new fellow. And his is to enable you dwell with God in the new heaven and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”

23.        [26]A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. [Ezekiel 36:26]

24.        [17]Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.[1 Corinthians 5:17]

25.        [13]Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. [2 Peter 3:13]

26.        You cannot use old spirit and old heart. Impossible! And what is God doing? The Message is transforming you. The Message is transforming, renewing, erasing the sinful past and showing you the joy of the future, why you must be steadfast where we are now.

27.        And there is another thing I want to point out there. Whenever a battle is coming towards an end, heads will begin to roll. Injuries will increase. Red cards will increase. Did you get the Message?

28.        Red cards will increase. You see the referee, from time to time flashing the red card.

29.        Sometimes, a team of eleven will be reduced to seven, and then the game continues. When they are reduced to seven, their strength is reduced. Red cards!

30.        But a team manager that knows his worth will warn the players against last minute injury. Last minute injury. That is where we are now.

31.        BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT LAST MINUTE INJURY THAT WILL TAKE YOU OUT OF THE PITCH. IF LAST MINUTE INJURY TAKES YOU OUT OF THE PITCH, YOU WILL NOT SEE THE END OF THE MATCH AGAIN. YOU WILL NOT SEE THE END OF THE MATCH.

32.        LET US WAKE UP IN THE SPIRIT. I SAY, “WAKE UP IN THE SPIRIT. ARISE AND SHINE, FOR THE GLORY OF GOD IS RISEN UPON US.

33.        1997. Can you imagine? How many years from now? 23 good years. Can you imagine? And the Word is still effective, alive and active. I mean,renewed.

34.        THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE, PART 1 VOL 2; Page 40 from verse 41 – 49.

35.        41If I stay here till tomorrow, you will stay here till tomorrow... Which is pure truth...because there is a higher anointing that is shooting down any spirit that will stir you people to hunger.Yes!

36.        42SOMETHING GREATER THAN YOUR NECESSARY FOOD IS HERE. ...

37.        Greater than our work is here. Greater than our academics is here. Greater than anything earthly is here. Who can believe this? That is why we are supernaturals acting in a supernatural way.

38.        A natural minded man cannot be in the fellowship till now. Check all of them. Even as we stay at home, one thing or the other will be diverting them.

39.        42SOMETHING GREATER THAN YOUR NECESSARY FOOD IS HERE. THE SON OF MAN IS GIVING YOU HIS OWN BREAD. ... Halleluiah!

40.        For He alone has the Father sealed and sent. What is that bread? The one that gives you eternal life. That is the bread.

41.        [27]Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which THE SON OF MAN shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. [John 6:27 KJV]

42.        ... THE SON OF MAN is giving you His own bread. When you eat it, you complain no more.You complain no more of food.That is life. That is why you travelled long distances to be here.

43.        43Glory be to God. I just thank God for this meeting. If I had stayed back in Jos, My spirit would have been troubling Me now, because THERE ARE PRECIOUS SOULS THAT I AM SEEING HERE THAT I WANT TO SHARPEN THE MOREGood!

44.        44You know how I sharpen them. ... Precious souls I have seen, and I want to sharpen them the more. If a knife is sharp, you make it sharper. We grow from strength to strength. From glory to glory.

45.        44YOU KNOW HOW I SHARPEN THEM.Iron sharpeneth iron. [Proverbs 27:17 KJV]WHEN I DESCEND ON THEM HEAVILY… Not lightly.

46.        I SAY, WHEN I DESCEND ON THEM HEAVILY, NOT LIGHTLY, I SHARPEN THEM THE MORE.

47.        45Nobody is sleeping in the Camp, even the infants. The anointing is keeping them still because they love Me most.

48.        Yes! The infants love THE SON OF MAN most. You equally see it with your own eyes.

49.        46Let me tell you. I am preaching here because when THE SON OF MAN will appear, He will be coming with healings in His hands. He sent forth His Word, His Word, His word healeth them.

50.        [20]He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. [Psalms 107:20 KJV]

51.        47If you are waiting for the day I will say, “You are healed. You are healed. You are healed”, you may never see it. Are you getting what I am saying? Yes!!!

52.        48Preaching the Message without healing the sick is incomplete. I am commanded to go and preach the word and to heal the sick, cast out demons. God bless you Brethren.

53.        49Let us go back to the Word again. I am coming down any time from now.  Even though you are not desiring me, I want to close my own gap. All these while, Bro Kelechi closed his own gap but my gap remained open. But now, I want to close my own there. Amen.

 

Let me tell you, Christ has been a Realist and will remain a Realist. That is why the emphasis has been, putting the message into practice, then you will begin to feel impact of its effect. You cannot tell me you believe this you, believe that with your mouth. No, no, no! The devil equally believed but trembled out. Watch me, I am that message myself. I SAID I AM THE BIBLE YOU SHOULD BE READING FOR YOUR SALVATION. That is all. If I do not meet your standard, you do you meet my standard. If I am anything short of your standard, you are many many things short of my standard for I AM THE STANDARD TO ALL MEN IN THIS GENERATION.

ONLY HEAVENLY BOUND BEINGS WILL RECEIVE THE SON OF MAN

 

THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE, PART 3 VOL 1; Preached in the afternoon session on 29th December 1997 [Camp Meeting]; Page 29 from verse 27 – 41.

2.           27THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN RECEIVE THE PERSON IS TO RECEIVE HIS MESSAGE. ... THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN RECEIVE A MAN GOD SENT IS TO RECEIVE HIS MESSAGE.

3.           RECEIVING HIS MESSAGE MEANS BELIEVING HIM. NOT WELCOMING HIM INTO YOUR HOUSE WITH A BAG OF RICE, WITH ONE MILLION NAIRA, WITH GOAT LIKE PEOPLE THINK, “IF I SHOULD BUY BAG OF RICE OR GIVE HIM MONEY OR BUY GENERATOR OR BUY THIS AND THAT, THAT MEANS I AM SERVING HIM.” YOU ARE NOT SERVING ME YET. I SAY, “YOU ARE NOT SERVING GOD YET.”

4.           If you like, give your body to be burnt, and you do not have the love of Him in your heart, you are wasting your time.

5.           [3]Even if I dole out all that I have [to the poor in providing] food, and if I surrender my body to be burned or in order that I may glory, but have not love (God's love in me), I gain nothing. [1 Corinthians 13:3]

6.           AND WHAT IS THE LOVE OF GOD? IF YOU LOVE ME, OBEY MY WORD. IF YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME AND MY WORD DOES NOT MAKE IMPACT, POSITIVE IMPACT IN YOUR LIFE, YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IN ME. YOUR LOVE IS LIP SERVICE LOVE.

7.           27The only way you can receive the person is to receive His Message… THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN RECEIVE A MAN GOD SENT IN YOUR DAY, A MESSENGER, IS BY RECEIVING HIS MESSAGE.

8.           IF YOU SAY YOU HAVE RECEIVED THE MAN WHOM GOD HAS SENT IN YOUR DAY AND YOU HAVE NOT MANIFESTED HIS MESSAGE, YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED HIM.

9.           28You can provide Him with everything that is required to live here on earth; every amount of comfort. It is alright. BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS HIS MESSAGEGood!

10.        29If He is sent, He is sent for a purpose. His purpose is not to come and eat or put on better dress or to clap hands and dance with you. No!HE IS SENT FOR A STRICT PURPOSE.

11.        He is sent for what? A STRICT PURPOSE. That is why I have maintained that strictness till today.

12.        Those who thought that they could bribe His conscience, bribe Him away with this or whatever they think that it is all about, that is why when they get humiliated with their gifts, they stopped. But those who come with sincere heart will keep on begging until their offerings are accepted.

13.        30All you have to do is to pay attention to that purpose for which He is sent. HE HAS A MESSAGE. An Angel means a messenger. A messenger is he that carries a Message.

14.        31If He is an Angel from God, sent to human beings, He is a messenger from God carrying God’s Message to be conveyed to human beings.

15.        32HE IS THE HEAVENLY MESSENGER WITH A HEAVENLY MESSAGE. ...

16.        A heavenly messenger with a heavenly Message. Is that not scriptural?

17.        HE CAME FROM HEAVEN AND THAT IS WHY THE WORLD CANNOT LISTEN TO HIM.

18.        [13]And yet no one has ever gone up to heaven, but there is One Who has come down from heaven--the Son of Man [Himself], Who is (dwells, has His home) in heaven. [John 3:13 Amplified] 

19.        [38]For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.[John 6:38 KJV]

20.        [17]The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you.[John 14:17 Amplified]

21.        We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood. [1 John 4:6 NIV]

22.        ONCE YOU ARE EARTHLY, HIS WORD MAKES NO IMPACT IN YOUR LIFE. ONLY HEAVENLY BOUND BEING WILL RECEIVE HIM AND RECEIVE HIS MESSAGE. IS IT NOT TRUE? 

23.        John the Baptist said, “I am earthly, but He is heavenly. And He is coming with a heavenly Message, whose shoe latchet I cannot even remove. He is better than me. He will increase and I will decrease.”

24.        [16]John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: [Luke 3:16 KJV]

25.        [6]And John was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey; [7]and preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose[8]I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.[Mark 1:6 – 8 KJV]

26.        The prophet William Braham equally supported it. I have the quotes here.

27.        “It may be time. It may be the hour now, that this great person that we're expecting to rise on the scene may rise on the scene. Maybe this ministry that I have tried to take people back to the Word has laid a foundation; and if it has, I'll be leaving you for good. There won't be two of us here the same time. IF IT IS, HE WILL INCREASE, I'LL DECREASE. I don't know. But I have been privileged by God to look and see what itwas – unfold to that much. Now, that is the truth.”[REVELATION OF THE SEVEN SEALS; Prophet William Marion Branham; 17thMarch 1963 at Jeffersonville, Indiana USA;Page 367 Paragraph 8]

28.        WHY YOU MUST RESPECT, HONOR AND OBEY THE HEAVENLY MESSENGER ANYTIME HE IS REVEALED IN THE MIDST OF THE BRIDE.

29.        32He is the heavenly messenger with the heavenly Message delivered to people living on earth. ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS TO PAY ATTENTION.

30.        UNTIL YOU RECEIVE THAT MESSAGE, YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED THAT MESSENGER.At all!

31.        33Thus, it is very, very essential. NO MATTER WHERE THE PERSON IS DRAWN FROM,... No matter His relationship with you. ...provided He is an Angel from God. All you have to do is to pay attention.

32.        34And if you say that you have received that Message and you remained the same, you are a liar.

33.        What? And if you say that you have received that Message and you remained the same, you are a liar. If you remain what you were, you are a liar. You cannot receive that Message and remain the same. Impossible!

34.        35The evidence that the people of Nineveh received the Message and the messenger was that they did something. They did something!

35.        [5]So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, andput on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. [6]For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from histhrone, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him withsackcloth, and sat in ashes.[7]And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Ninevehby the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither mannor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water:[8]but let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightilyunto God: yea, let them turn everyone from his evil way, and fromthe violence that is in their hands.[9]Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from hisfierce anger, that we perish not? [Jonah 3:5 – 9 KJV]

36.        When Noah received the messenger and his Message, Noah did something.He did something.

37.        [7]By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet,moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by thewhich he condemned the world, and became heir of therighteousness which is by faith. [Hebrews 11:7]

38.        When Lot received the messenger and his Message, Lot did something. Are you hearing what I am saying?

39.        [14]And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons-in-law, which marriedhis daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons-in-law. [Genesis 19:14]

40.        36When Manoah and his wife received the Angel and His Message, they did something.

41.        [8]Then Manoah entreated the Lord, and said, O my Lord, let theman of God which thou didst send come again unto us, and teachus what we shall do unto the child that shall be born. ......  [17]And Manoah said unto the angel of the Lord, What is thy name, that when thy sayings come to pass we may do thee honor? [18]And the angel of the Lord said unto him, Why askest thou thus after my name, seeing it is secret? [19]So Manoah took a kid with a meat offering, and offered it upon a rock unto the Lord: and the angel did wondrously; and Manoah and his wife looked on. [Judges 13:8, 17 – 19 KJV]

42.        When Zachariah received the Angel and His Message, he did something.

43.        [18]And Zachariah said to the angel, By what shall I know and be sure of this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.[Luke 1:18]

44.        When Joseph the husband of Mary received the Angel and His Message, he did something.

45.        [13]And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lordappeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the youngchild and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroyhim.When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: [Matthew 2:13 KJV]

46.        37When Pharaoh received the Angel and His Message, he did something.

47.        [31]And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel ; and go, serve the Lord, as ye have said. [32]Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also. [Exodus 12:31 – 32 KJV]

48.        YOU CANNOT RECEIVE THE ANGEL AND HIS MESSAGE AND REMAIN THE SAME;...You must do something. Good or bad.

49.        YOU CANNOT RECEIVE THE ANGEL AND HIS MESSAGE AND REMAIN THE SAME; AND REMAIN SITTING WHERE YOU WERE SITTING BEFORE.

50.        It is a lie!No way!The Message stood pharaoh up from his seat. And in attempt to fight the Message, he perished in the Red Sea.

51.        [5]And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?[6]And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him: [7]and he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and captains over every one of them. ...... [28]And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.[Exodus 14: 5 – 7, 28]

52.        YOU CANNOT RECEIVE THE ANGEL AND HIS MESSAGE AND REMAIN THE SAME; AND REMAIN SITTING WHERE YOU WERE SITTING BEFORE. THERE IS GOING TO BE A CHANGE.

53.        38The moment God sends an Angel or a Messenger or THE SON OF MAN, Hear me very well. Ezekiel was a Son of Man. Daniel was a Son of Man. Jeremiah, a Son of Man. Isaiah, a Son of Man. All God’s Messengers, not one was called the Son of devil.

54.        39If I am not Son of Man, am I Son of the devil? Even your Igbo language will even accuse you that you call your child “Nwachukwu” (Son of God), even when he is not even from God. “Nwachukwu” means Son of God. Not child of God but son of God.

55.        40Even when your child is presenting devilish character, you are seeing every evidence to call that child “son of Belial”, you still have the boldness to call him “Nwachukwu”, son of God.

56.        41Unless the language has lost its meaning. If you are not a blasphemer by calling your child son of God even when he is manifesting attributes of son of devil, why then do you accuse me of answering Son of God?

57.        He that God sent. He that has come with the Message of life...Born to righteousness. Righteousness can never depart from Him....and you cannot accuse Me of anything. Never!

58.        THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE, PART 3 VOL 1; Page 42 from verse 19 – 36.

59.        19That you are sitting down here does not mean you have believed,until I see you reflecting the Message.

60.        Your sitting down here does not mean that you are believing or you have believed until I see your character reflecting the Message. True or false?

61.        35...If you do not believe the first sign, you do not believe the second sign, what then are you expecting?

62.        Do we have the First Sign? Do we have the Second Sign? We have even the Third Sign. 

63.        35...If you do not believe the first sign, you do not believe the second sign, what then are you expecting? JUDGMENT!

64.        36You do not believe the first Sign. You do not believe the Word Sign. You do not believe the Heavenly Sign. You do not believe the Wonders.

65.        You do not believe the WORD that went forth, WHAT SIGNS AND WONDERS CAME TO CONFIRM. You do not even believe the Heavenly Message, the audible Voice.

66.        Have you seen it? Then you are perishing. It is straight on to hell!

DEVELOP A STRONG BACKBONE

 

THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE, PART 1 VOL 2; Preached on THE SON OF MAN’s 40th Birthday, 27th December 1997 [Camp Meeting]; Page 60 from verse 1 – 23.

2.         Chapter Three: EVERY MAN MUST DEVELOP A STRONG BACKBONE.

3.           Listen to Me. Every man, every woman, develop what? A strong backbone. STRONG FAITH MEANS STRONG BACKBONE. STRONG DECISION!

4.           Stong decision, “Am I not the person involved. Even if it will take the last drop of my blood, I will keep it up. The fear of death can never discourage me from going to war. I can pass through the same opening where others passed.”

5.           DEVELOP A STRONG BACKBONE, “Instead of the devil to take Me to captivity; No No No No No! It will never happen. Instead, let me die of starvation.”

6.           There was one I quoted. I said, “I better continue to eat sand even right now. I will eat it till the day I will be translated. It is better than to enjoy the pleasures of this life and then perish in hell.” God forbid!

7.           Maybe you do not know that there are too many people, even in our midst, God will place where He placed Me and they will forget the Word of God. They will say that they are already in paradise, even here on earth.

8.           I remember in those days, when the little Brother Mike amassed that time, the wife said that if heaven is on earth that she is in heaven. And that heaven is the little thing at Mbaise. That is heaven. AM I making sense?

9.           You see! I know there are some people who are fixing their eyes on material wealth and material possessions. That is where their heart is.

10.        And that is why God said He will never allow THE SON OF MAN to be a beggar. Then, God has been in control from the very beginning.

11.        And I have never presented this Message in a beggarly way before. Never! I have never tried to lower it down or flatter anybody or pamper you. No no no no no! I have never attempted it.

12.        So, God placed Me on a high pedestal so that I will not be poor and I will not be rich.

13.        And you will not have any occasion againto say you will not believe because I am as far as you think. No! I am always in the forefront. Even in this Bridal Faith, I am still in the forefront. Is it not true?

14.        If you are intelligent and understanding, follow Me. But if you are blind, coin out your own way.

15.        1I am saying that greater than Solomon is here. If greater than Solomon is not here, who could find fault with Solomon? It requires He that called Solomon.

16.        Who could find fault with Braham? He that called Braham! Who could find fault with Paul? He that called Paul!

17.        This is because He [THE SON OF MAN] came to gather all the loose ends, and then correct all errors! Errors! Errors! Correct all!

18.        2REMEMBER, WITHOUT YOU, WITHOUT ME, PAUL IS NOT PERFECT,... Pure Truth!...PETER IS NOT PERFECT.Yes! DO YOU KNOW THAT?Pure Truth! HOW MANY KNOW THAT NO BACHELOR IS PERFECT?No bachelor is perfect.

19.        3IF YOU DIE AS A BACHELOR, YOU NEVER OBEYED THE WORD FULLY. WHY THE NOISE? A MAN THAT HAS NO WIFE HAS NO EXPERIENCE.Pure Truth!

20.        YOU ARE NOT A MAN UNTIL YOU ARE MARRIED. IF YOU ARE WITHOUT A WIFE, YOU ARE JUST ROAMING IN THE WORLD LIKE THAT.

21.        4WHEN GOD SAYS TRY YOUR PATIENCE, WHO WILL TRY YOUR PATIENCE? WHO WILL TRY YOUR LONG SUFFERING? WHO WILL TRY YOUR LOVE?

22.        5WEDO NOT KNOW WHO YOU ARE UNTIL YOU GET MARRIED BECAUSE THE TYPE OF WOMAN YOU MARRY WILL DETERMINE THE TYPE OF GOD YOU WILL WORSHIP.

23.        That is exactly where we are heading to now. Have you seen it? The type of woman you marry has something to speak concerning your eternal journey. That is exactly where I want to strike.

24.        It is not that because you are a bachelor, you cannot live a life free from unbelief. No! You must live pure.

25.        Timothy was a bachelor. Silvanus was a bachelor. Urbane was a bachelor.There are very many of them. We are just naming but a few. Did St. Paul marry?

26.        YOU CAN SERVE GOD WITHOUT EVEN MARRYING A WIFE. SERVING GOD BEFORE MARRIAGE HELPS YOU TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE.

27.        SERVING THE LORD IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH BEFORE VENTURING INTO MARRIAGE LEADS YOU TO THE RIGHT CHOICE OF GOD FOR A WIFE, FOR VIRTUOUS WIFE IS FROM GOD. WHO CAN FIND IT IF NOT GOD?

28.        [14]House and riches are the inheritance of fathers:and a prudent wife is from the Lord. [Proverbs 19:14]

29.        [10]Who can find a virtuous woman?For her price is far above rubies.[Proverbs 31:10]

30.        AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN YOU WILL GUIDE YOU PERFECTLY TO THAT PERSON WHO WILL FUSE WITH YOU. FUSING WITH YOU MEANS AGREEING WITH YOU AND AGREEING WITH YOUR FAITH.

31.        EVEN IF YOU DID NOT GO WITH YOUR FAITH, WHENEVER YOUR FAITH IS INTRODUCED, SHE WILL SAY AMEN BECAUSE SHE IS A SEED.

32.        5WE DO NOT KNOW WHO YOU ARE UNTIL YOU GET MARRIED BECAUSE THE TYPE OF WOMAN YOU MARRY WILL DETERMINE THE TYPE OF GOD YOU WILL WORSHIP.

33.        6UNTIL YOU GET MARRIED, WE DO NOT KNOW YOUR GOD. IF YOU ARE NOT MARRIED HERE, WHEN WE SHOUT CHRIST YOU CAN CLIMB THE WALL AND SHOUT YOUR OWN.

34.        7DO NOT WORRY, YOU CAN CALL US UNBELIEVERS, DO NOT WORRY, WE WILL SIT DOWN AND WATCH YOU UNTIL IT COMES TO YOUR TURN [TO MARRY].

35.        And did it come to pass? Bible said the moment it comes to marriage, they will begin to show their colours. Some will become even mad. Marrying the heathens becomes a very light thing. Sin becomes a light thing.

36.        8YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT A MAN BELIEVES; YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT A WOMAN BELIEVES UNTIL IT COMES TO MARRIAGE. ...

37.        True or false? The fellow will be changing like a chameleon. He will sayingmany different things, looking for who will give him support.

38.        He will be painting an Idol to become God. When he sees Jezebel, he will be painting her to become Rebecca. He will be painting Jezebelto become Rachael. And he will continue painting.

39.        8YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT A MAN BELIEVES. YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT A WOMAN BELIEVES UNTIL IT COMES TO MARRIAGE. EVERYBODY WILL INTRODUCE HIS OWN DOCTRINE.

40.        Everybody introduces his own belief because it has come to marriage. Nobody will believe God again.

41.        BRETHREN, IS IT NOT FULFILLING? ARE YOU NOT SEEING IT HAPPENING IN OUR MIDST? WHO ARE DOING IT? THE MIXED MULTITUDE.

42.        AND GOD SAID, “THERE IS NO OTHER WAY THE MOABITES CAN COME INTO OUR MIDST IF NOT THROUGH MARRIAGE. UNGODLY MARRIAGE. WHEN SONS OF GOD WILL ENTANGLE THEMSELVES WITH DAUGHTERS OF MEN.”

43.        AND WATCH WHAT THEY WILL PRODUCE. THEY WILL PRODUCE PEOPLE THAT WILL TROUBLE THE FAITH, TROUBLE THE FAMILIES AND TROUBLE EVERYBODY.

44.        See Sunday Ugorji. See Sam Agu. Check all these people who went and lifted heathens. Anyone that goes to his home town, he willlift one. Watch what is happening around them.

45.        Consider not those who married before they embraced the Faith. Look at those who married in our midst.

46.        The other day, we were there and the son of John Abba (Emma Abba) went to Ugheli and came back with one. And that one, if you see her moving in the Fellowship.

47.        Can you imagine somebody who the mother in-law is threatening to beat the hell out of her? Can you imagine somebody Sister John Abba is condemning her character? Begin to imagine.

48.        That is why whenever you see the Sister in the Fellowship, she is always carrying the grand-child because the daughter-in-law does not know anything.

49.        Talk of the Faith, when Message is going on, she is just moping like elephant in the Fellowship. There are too many of them like that.

50.        9LET ME TELL YOU WHY I SAID THAT YOU ARE NOT IN THE FAITH OF CHRIST UNTIL YOU ARE MARRIED.IT IS NOT EASY TO DISARM A WOMAN.

51.        IT IS NOT EASY TO DISARM A WOMAN. Chika, is there truth in it? Darling, is there truth in it? IS IT EASY TO DISARM A WOMAN? IT IS NOT EASY. WHO HAS EVER SUCCEEDED IN DISARMING A WOMAN?

52.        10EVERY WOMAN THAT IS MARRIED COMES TO HER HUSBAND WITH HER FATHER’S GOD. A MUST! AND IT REQUIRES A MAN WITH BACKBONE TO SEARCH THAT WOMAN VERY WELL, DIP HIS HAND IN THAT NO GO AREA AND UPROOT THAT GOD.

53.        That was what Jacob did. [2]Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments: ...... [4]And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem. [Genesis 35:2, 4]

54.        10It requires a wise Jacob to carry out thorough searching.Yes! That is why you hear, “I do not love that woman.” You are still quarreling and fighting in the house.

55.        13A man will quarrel and fight with his wife, go out and gossipwith his wife and still come here to tell us, “My wife has delivered.”

56.        13Is that one a man? He is not a man! He is worshipping a goddess.And they will raise a family and not a home. A man worshiping a goddess.

57.        He is worshipping a goddess. How can you kick your wife up and down, scandalize her, two of you have parted, a little while, you will have a child, where did you get that child? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

58.        14Do not make me halt until I have finished talking to you. I will go back to Scripture. EVERY WOMAN THAT IS MARRIED COMES WITH HER FAMILY gOD. AND IT WILL TAKE A STRONG MAN WITH BACKBONE TO TAME THAT WOMAN TO OBEY HIS GOD.

59.        15WHEN THEY ARE COMING, THEY DO NOT DECLARE THEY ARE HAVING THAT GOD.At all! THEY TIE IT IN THEIR WRAPPER. WAIT UNTIL THEY HAVE THEIR FIRST CHILD.

60.        16THE WORSE WILL BE IF THE FIRST CHILD TURNS OUT TO BE A SON, SHE WILL INTRODUCE HER gODS FULLY.

61.        17Women! Look at yourselves. Keep looking at yourselves. You know exactly what I am talking about. They all know the truth. If you do not bring your father’s god, you will bring your mother’s god. Pure Truth!

62.        18A lot of men that really want to worship God are being held back by their wives.Sure! They are being held back because they are sissified men. They are jelly fish. The fish without back bone is a jelly fish.

63.        19EVERYMAN MUST DEVELOP STRONG BACKBONE. IF YOU NEVER DEVELOPED IT BEFORE, DEVELOP IT NOW BECAUSE THE MESSAGE IS BECOMING VERY UNCOMFORTABLE FOR MARRIED WOMEN. Sure! IT HAS BECOME UNCOMFORTABLE FOR MARRIED WOMEN. We resolved one at Jos. How many saw that one?

64.        20He that sent him there knew that they will never accept the dowry. To bring the Voice to come to pass, He assigned him two Elders of the Church and made it Church case so that He will be ready to slaughter.

65.        21If the man accepts the money when you go there, I will go to altar call. I say, I will go to altar call. Pay attention! If you are not careful, the man may even make a strong case. I said a strong case. That is the father of our former Sister, Leetu. Did we bribe the man to get his consent? Did we lower the Message because of the goddess?

66.        22If she refuses to continue with the Faith because she has gone to her father’s house that goes to show that she is a conditional believer that followed the man because of marriage.

67.        23AN ISRAELITE MUST MARRY AN ISRAELITE. Do what? AN ISRAELITE MUST MARRY AN ISRAELITE. ...

68.        A BELIEVER MUST MARRY A BELIEVER. BELIEVER MEANS BELIEVING WHAT YOU BELIEVE, STANDING FOR WHAT YOU ARE STANDING FOR. NOT MINUS.

69.        Do not say,“I will know what I will do. Let me bring her in.” There is nothing you can do. What if the person is being supported by the parents who are also hypocrites? You are doomed! I say, you are doomed!

 

 

 

There is no married woman that does not know what to do to please her husband. Is it a lie? I am your husband. You are now My wife. Can you please Me? Do you know what it takes to please Me? Only one thing. Very simple: hearken and obey My Word.What is lifted up in your midst is his Word.  What He preserved in our midst from the beginning is His Word. What He preserved in our midst, that we may not perish is His Word. What is the unfailing sign He gave to us? His Word. I am the Word. In Me, you are sanctified, for you are sanctified by the Word which I have spoken to you, if you believe. In Medwelleth the Shewbread which you feed on. This faith cannot denominate because the instrument of leadership is divine…….

THE INSTRUMENT FOR A GODLY HOME IS THE WORD OF GOD

 

THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE, PART 1 VOL 2; Preached on THE SON OF MAN’s 40th Birthday, 27th December 1997 [Camp Meeting]; Page 66 from verse 23 – 24.

2.         23AN ISRAELITE MUST MARRY AN ISRAELITE. A SON OF GOD MUST MARRY A DAUGHTER OF GOD. ...

3.           A Son of God M-U-S-T marry a Daughter of God.HOW DO YOU KNOW A DAUGHTER OF GOD?

4.           ... EVERY DAUGHTER OF GOD MUST RECOGNIZE GOD IN HER DAY...So, take note! EVERY DAUGHTER OF GOD MUST RECOGNIZE GOD IN HER DAY. That is number one.

5.           ...AND WILL SAY “AMEN” TO EVERY WORD OF GOD.And will do what?...SAY AMEN TO EVERY WORD OF GOD.

6.           NO DAUGHTER OF GOD CHALLENGES THE WORD OF GOD BECAUSE SHE IS A PART OF THE WORD. AND SHE HAS BEEN A PART OF THE WORD BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN. CHALLENGING THE WORD MEANS CHALLENGING HERSELF.

7.           Then, if you challenge the Word, what will establish your marriage? What will establish you? What is the hope of eternal life? What will be the instrument you will use to form your family and raise your children? Is it what you are challenging?

8.           Check all that challenged the Word. Check what they are raising in their families. They, first of all, challenged what was to establish them, establish the familyand make their homes. They challengedthe instrument they would have used to raise godly children.

9.           Some even ran away. Every day they are settling dispute. The dispute to settle remain the unbelief in the woman and the unbelief in the man.

10.        WHEN YOU THROW AWAY WHAT IS GIVEN TO YOU FOR TRAINING OF CHILDREN, WILL YOU TRAIN THEM EMPTY HANDED?

11.        THE ONLY POWERFUL INSTRUMENT GIVEN TO PARENTS TO RAISE FORMIDABLE GODLY HOMES REMAINS THE WORD OF GOD.

12.        How can you then say no to the Word and expect your children to be children of God? Will it ever happen? So, the man must hold the Word. And the wife must hold the Word. Then, the children have no option. They have no option.

13.        SO, THE ONLY THING, THE ONLY TOY, PLAYING MATERIAL PARENTS GIVE THEIR CHILDREN FROM INFANCY IS THE WORD OF GOD, FOR THEM TO GROW THEREBY.

14.        So that when they grow up to depart from it will be very difficult. It will be very difficult. Even if you attempt it, THE STILL SMALL VOICE will ask you, “Where are you heading to? Where are you heading to? Is there any life there? What is attracting you there? What are you seeing there?” Finish!

15.        And the moment that question is answered rightly, you will go back, shelve the idea.

16.        You want to follow somebody. The Voice will ask you, “Why are you following that person? Why are you equally yoked with that person? What do you think he can offer you? Do you know that the person you are following is a heathen?”

17.        He may be in the Faith. Yet,he is a heathen. That is why, if you are a seed of God, the spirit in you will sift everybody. You do not subscribe to people anyhow.

18.         If you know you cannot correct that person what do you do? Distance the person.  If I cannot correct you, I will distance you, lest I contact corona.

19.        The first step toward checking corona is social distance. Note the word “social”. SOCIAL DISTANCE. SO, WHATEVER CONTACT WE ARE HAVING IN THE FLESH IS SOCIAL CONTACT.

20.        SO, WHETHER HE IS OFFERING YOU MOTOR OR OFFERING YOU FOOD, SHELTER OR WHATEVER, IT IS SOCIAL. IT IS NOT SPIRITUAL. IT IS NOT ETERNAL AND CAN NEVER LEAD YOU TO ANYWHERE.

21.        Distance that person you cannot correct. Is it not the scripture? It said from such people, turn away. Do not give in. Do not follow them.

22.        [17]Now I beseech you, brethren, MARK THEM which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; AND AVOID THEM.[Romans 16:17 KJV]

23.        [3]IF ANY MAN TEACH OTHERWISE, AND CONSENT NOT TO WHOLESOME WORDS, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; [4]he is proudknowing nothing, but doting about questions andstrifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, [5]perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truthsupposing that gain is godlinessFROM SUCH WITHDRAW THYSELF.[1 Timothy 63 – 5 KJV]

24.        The moment you are following a man and you notice that he is leading you to the wrong path always, taking you to where you do not even want to go, I do not care whatever he is offering you. Do what? CUT OFF! Do what? CUT OFF!

25.        ONE DAY, HE WILL LEAD YOU TO DEATH. BECAUSE WHATEVER THAT WILL AFFECT THE WICKED, WILL AFFECT SOMEBODY WHO IS ENJOYING THE FRUITS OF HIS WICKEDNESS. IS IT A LIE BRETHREN?

26.        WICKEDNESS BEARS FRUIT. RIGHTEOUSNESS BEARS FRUIT. IS IT NOT TRUE? WICKEDNESS BEARS FRUIT. RIGHTEOUSNESS BEARS FRUIT.

27.        23... EVERY DAUGHTER OF GOD MUST RECOGNIZE GOD IN HER DAY AND WILL SAY “AMEN” TO EVERY GOD’S WORD.

28.        24EVERY SON OF GOD, BORN OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD, WILL ACKNOWLEDGE THE WORD OF GOD TO BE TRUE AND WILL ALSO SAY “AMEN” TO IT.

29.        That is where we will stop this morning. We are not dismissing from the presence of God, but we are saying, “Thank you LORD.” We are saying, “Good morning” to God who has preserved these Messages.

30.        WHAT IS THE IDEA OF PRESERVING THE MESSAGES? IT IS SO THAT WE WILL NOT PERISH. THAT WE WILL NOT PERISH.

31.        Assuming these Messages were not preserved in print, will there be any reference point? Will there be anything we will use to put ourselves in remembrance, especially as we see the day approaching? No! Nothing!

32.        SO, LET US BE VERY VERY CAREFUL THAT WE DO NOT ALLOW OUR SPIRITS TO BE TAKEN CAPTIVE. LET US BE VERY VERY CAREFUL THAT WE DO NOT GO INTO SPIRITUAL CAPTIVITY AGAIN. ONCE LIBERATED, LET US REMAIN LIBERATED.

33.        And the secret lies in following the leader closely, closely, jogging, jogging in a single file. Do not go to the left. And do not go to the right.

34.        FIX YOUR EYES ON PARADISE. FIX YOUR AFFECTION ON PARADISE. LET YOUR CONVERSATION BE ON PARADISE. EVERYTHING SHOULD BE ON PARADISE.

35.        AND I BELIEVE THAT COLLECTIVELY AS A FAMILY, WE SHALL GET IN THERE, FOR THE GUIDE KNOWS THE WAY FOR THE CLOUD IS PAVING THE WAY FOR HIM.

36.        And that is not all. You have no reason to give. He is drawn from among you. He speaks your language. He eats your food and under the same roof with you. I say, you have no reason at all to draw back or begin to drag your feet.

37.        ALWAYS REMEMBER. AT ANY POINT WHERE YOU PAUSE TO YOU DRAG YOUR FEET, YOU ARE OVERTAKEN THERE BY THE DEVIL. AND ONCE HE MEETS YOU THERE, HE REVERSES YOUR JOURNEY. HE WILL TAKE YOU BACK TO ORIGIN.

38.        AND ONCE YOU ARE IN CAPTIVITY THE SECOND TIME, HE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU AGAIN. HE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU AGAIN.

39.        SO, BEWARE OF SECOND SPIRITUAL CAPTIVITY BY THE DEVILBEWARE OF SECOND SPIRITUAL CAPTIVITY BY THE DEVIL.

40.        When the devil is purged from the heart of a man, he goes into the wilderness. After roaming about, he will come back to look into that heart to know whether God has occupied because it is God that drove that devil away.

41.        [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 Amplified]

42.        [24]When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it roams through waterless places in search [of a place] of rest (release, refreshment, ease); and finding none it says, I will go back to my house from which I came. [25]And when it arrives, it finds [the place] swept and put in order and furnished and decorated.[26]And it goes and brings other spirits, seven [of them], more evil than itself, and they enter in, settledown, and dwell there; and the last state of that person is worse than the first. [Luke 11:24 – 26 Amplified]

43.        And when God is there, the person is still with the Word of God, the thought of God, the thought of heaven and paradise, and everything is found there, and even his conversation is heaven, the devil will have no room to come in. After sometime, he [devil] will go away, and will never trouble that person again.

44.        Now, but what if he comes and the heart is empty? The heart heard the Word of God and trembled. The devil trembled out, thinking that the man meant it, only to come back and see the parlour well-garnished and ready now to accept him more than ever.

45.        Bible said that he [devil] will go out and get more. The devil get more devastating, destructive legions of demons, mightier than himself. And then possess that person. The person’s estate now becomes worse than his former estate.

46.        Why? He is being taken into captivity the second time. And the Bible said that to renew him again to the right spirit is impossible, seeing that he has crucified Christ the second time by forgetting that he was once purged from all those sinful habits.

47.        Why rolling back? You paused. You dragged your leg. You reasoned. How glorious it will be if I should take this fruit or food. How glorious it will be if I had accepted the envelop.

48.        Do not forget what happened to Gehazi. Gehazi wondered,“Any way, I will go back. Let me go to Naaman the Syrian in the name of my master,My master sent me. He said he made a mistake.” I need the package of money. He said that I should bring it.”

49.        What happened? He took something that was rejected by a man of God and he took leprosy. He took leprosy. From there, he died. That was the end of Gehazi.

50.        SO, LET US BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT SECOND TIME SPIRITUAL CAPTIVITY IN THE HAND OF THE DEVIL. IF HE CAPTURES YOU THE SECOND TIME, HE WILL NOT RELEASE YOU.

51.        SECOND CAPTIVITY IN THE HAND OF THE DEVIL. SECOND CAPTIVITY IN THE HAND OF THE DEVIL.

52.        SONG: [Rock of Ages cleft for me. Let me hide myself in Thee. Let the water and the blood from Thy wounded side which flowed. Be of sin the double cure. Save from wrath and make me pure.]

53.        SONG: [There is not a friend like the lowly Saviour. No, not one. No, not one. And yet not friend is so meek and lowly. No, not one. No, not one. No sinner comes that He will not take him. No, not one. No, not one.

54.        My God knows all about my struggles. He will guide till the day is done. There’s not a friend like the lowly Saviour.]

55.        SONG: [Coming home! Coming home! No longer in the path of sin to roam. Coming home! Coming home! My Saviour I am coming home.]

56.        SONG: [Nearer my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee. E’en though it be a cross that raiseth me. Still all my song shall be, nearer my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee.]

57.        BEWARE OF LAST-MINUTE INJURY AS WE PLAY IN THE INJURY TIME. BEWARE OF THIS PREDICTED LAST MINUTE INJURY THAT TAKES US AWAY FROM THE PITCH, FOR THAT IS WHAT THE DEVIL IS PLANNING.

58.        THE DEVIL IS PLANNING TO CAUSE US TO ERR, TO ANOINT US FALSELY AND TAKE OUR MINDS BACK TO EGYPT. AND THEN, OVERTAKE US.

59.        SO, WHEN YOU KNOW THE SECRET OF OVERCOMING, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. DO NOT DIVULGE IT TO THE DEVIL. KEEP ON FIGHTING. KEEP ON PRAYING. AND KEEP ON WATCHING. AND THE LORD WILL GIVE US THE VICTORY ACCORDING TO HIS PROMISE.

60.        MY PRAYER IS THAT HE WILL CROWN OUR EFFORTS WITH SUCCESS TO THE GLORY OF HIS NAME. AMEN!!!
