ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO BE SAVED

 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 28 from verse 32 – 59. 

2.           32The men of Nineveh shall rise up in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, a greater than Jonah is here. KJV[Matthew 12:41; Luke 11:32]

3.           33AS JONAH WAS A SIGN TO HIS GENERATION, SO SHALL THE SON OF MAN BE A SIGN TO THIS GENERATION.

4.           34IN OTHER WORDS, ANY TIME THE SON OF MAN APPEARS ON THE SCENE, HE IS THE LAST SIGN. HE SIGNIFIES JUDGMENT.

5.           WHY? GOD DOES NOT JUDGE ANY MAN, BUT HAS COMMITTED JUDGMENT INTO THE HAND OF HIS DEAR SON, FOR HE IS THE SON OF MAN.

6.           35God does not judge any man but has committed judgment into the hand of His Son for He IS THE SON OF MAN.

7.           [22]For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: ... [27]and hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. [John 5:22, 27KJV]

8.           36Check since all the Ages. I have taught you. God has been sending us Messiahs, Saviours. They were all human beings. Till today, they are still human beings born of man and woman, walking among men.

9.           37When Jesus came, he fulfilled a Prophecy made for Moses. “From among you, God will raise a man, your brother. It shall come to pass. If any of you fails to hear His voice, he shall be cut off from among his brethren.” It roared on Moses. It roared on Jesus the Christ.

[15]The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; ... [18]I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.[Deuteronomy 18:15 & 18KJV]

10.       38I want to talk to you. I do not want to preach to you. If you could catch the introduction while I will be speaking, you will know the Source of the Message very well.That is why many have not come into the Faith of Christ.

11.       39They have never known or recognized by divine revelation He that has been in your midst all these years. You have not even known the Source of what you are feeding on.

12.       40This young man that could go to the Temple and there he talked to Doctors, talked to Pharisees, Lawyers and they were astonished and said “Where did he get this wisdom, seeing that he did not go to school?”

13.       [14]Then midway through the festival, Jesus went up to the Temple and preached openly. [15]The Jewish leaders were surprised when they heard him. “How can he know so much when he’s never been to our schools?” they asked. [John 7:14 – 15 Living Bible]

14.       Yet, he was born of a woman, an ordinary street carpenter, [and] His father, an ordinary carpenter.

15.       41How many know the account of the parents of William Braham, especially the father? How many know the account. Did he come from a very wealthy home? How many can talk about his dress. I mean, his popular suit? You know something was happening that time.

16.       42Some people thought the man changes his suit so much. They never knew that that [one] suit was his all and all. They thought that why he was patching it up and down was that he did not want to discard it.

17.       43If he had continued that way, he would have ended it very well.  But Satan tricked him along the way. He became envious of his believers and then lowered the thing.

18.       44But it can never be so in this Faith for many reasons. This is not the ministry of a man. Thus, it cannot be lowered. The owner of the Ministry is behind the Ministry.

19.       45THE SON OF MAN is the last sign to this generation. Now, let me help you, for you to understand exactly who that SON OF MAN is.

20.       46Jesus as a man was here. Jesus as a man was here. Jesus as a man was here. He was not the Christ from the beginning. He was a mere man.

21.       47He was not Christ until the day the Spirit came. Then, when the Spirit came, He became Christ. It was that Spirit of God that came upon him that made him Christ. Jesus of Nazareth, a man, anointed by the Holy Ghost and he went about doing good.

22.       [38]How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the [Holy] Spirit and with strength and ability and power; how He went about doing good and, in particular, curing all who were harassed and oppressed by [the power of] the devil, for God was with Him.[Acts 10:38]

23.       48So he told us also when that SON OF MAN shall appear. Just like William Braham guided us concerning the second coming of THE SON OF MAN, Jesus the Christ also said something about the second coming of THE SON OF MAN.

24.       49When did He say we should expect Him? He said, “Anytime you see the world returning to the condition of Sodom and Gomorrah, returning to the condition of Noah, this SON OF MAN shall appear.” He shall appear.

25.       50AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF SODOM AND GOMORRAH, AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, SO SHALL IT BE IN THE DAY THE SON OF MAN SHALL – NOTE IT! “SHALL”“SHALL” – BE MADE MANIFEST.

26.       [Matthew 24:37. Living bible] This world will be at ease banquets and parties and weddings, just as it was in Noah’s time before the sudden coming of the flood.[37]As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. [Matthew 24:37. Amplified version]

[26]And [just] as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the time of the Son of Man. [27][People] ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, right up to the day when Noah went into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.

[28]So also [it was the same] as it was in the days of Lot. [People] ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; [29]But on the [very] day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed [them] all. [30]That is the way it will be on the day that the Son of Man is revealed.[Luke 17:26 – 30. Amplified version]

27.       THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE; Part 2 Volume 2; Preached on 27th December 1997 on THE SON OF MAN’s 40th Birthday; Chapter 2: Action time. Page 28 from verse 1 – 16.

28.       1You cannot come into this Church and sit down, hear Me, unless you are from God. If you are not from God, you can hardly sit here. Check yourselves, all of you.

29.       2There is no denomination you can go and sit down from morning till now without complaining, without even leaving your seat because nothing is coming forth. There is nothing comforting you in your seat.

30.       3And there is no preacher that can stand there for one hour unless he is using musical instruments. But talk of talking, fifteen minutes, the sermon is done. The next is prayer because he has no sermon except you barren woman, witches and wizard.

31.       4The next is to tell you people that are planning to kill you. He will tell you there that your mother is against you, your wife is against your son in-law. This is because they lack the Word. They are liars.

32.       5When they read Scriptures, they read one passage and set it aside. Then tell their stories [of] Things that never happened on earth. This is the only way they can get something from you because they are liars. They are selling their own ideas.

33.       6But why are you not following Me? You do not allow the Word of God to rest in your heart. Am I misleading you? What I am telling you, is nature not bearing witness?

34.       7Are you not even witnessing it around yourselves? Even in the society you are living in, is it not everyday life? Something that is real.

35.       8Why can’t you follow Me? Why can’t you obey Me? Can any of you accuse Me of sin? I mean, accuse Me of breaking My sermon? I mean, preaching something else and living another life?

36.       9If I am struggling to live the same life, why not follow Me? I thank God you cannot accuse Me of giving you a yoke that I am not carrying. I will take the yoke first. I will carry it first and I will pass it unto you.

37.       10Whatever you are passing through in the faith, I am passing through the same thing. If you do not know it, know it. If you know what you are suffering, I am suffering even more.

38.       11Thus, do not think this Message is very light for Brother or think He has another place. You are misleading yourself there.

39.       12It is because I am passing through the same experience, that is why I am in a position to succour you any time you are being upset by the same condition because I have passed through it.

40.       I will taste it to know how painful it is. Then, if that is the case, who am I?

41.       13Who has ever been weak and I am not weak with him? Who has ever been sorrowing and I did not sorrow with the person?

42.       What is your trouble? If you are here with your family, did I keep My family away and then come down here? What is your trouble?

43.       14I am talking to you that have believed [and to] All of you that have followed all these years because the person that will be disappointed at the end is not a harlot in the hotel. it is not an armed robber.

44.       15or the drunkard in the restaurant! ... The person that will be disappointed at the end. Take Note!

45.       It is somebody sitting down here who is making Me believe that he is in the faith of Christ or making Me believe that she is in the faith of Christ, but is a hypocrite. He is the person that will be disappointed.

46.       I repeat!14I am talking to you that have believed [and to] All of you that have followed all these years because the person that will be disappointed at the end is not a harlot in the hotel. it is not an armed robber.

47.       15or the drunkard in the restaurant! It is somebody sitting down here who is making Me believe that he is in the faith of Christ or making Me believe that she is in the faith of Christ, but is a hypocrite. He is the person that will be disappointed.

48.       Have you heard it? Have you heard it? Loud and clear! Loud and clear! Loud and clear!

1.          16God is not willing to drop anybody. It is not easy to go to hell fire.  In the same way, it is not easy to go to Heaven.


DO YOU THINK IT IS EASY? HAROLD CAMPING STILL BELIEVES THAT JESUS IS COMING SOON TO TAKE THE BELIEVERS AWAY. HE IS WAITING TO SEE JESUS, BUT YOU KNOW THE PERSON THAT IS COMING. HE THAT IS PROMISED TO COME HAS COME AND HE IS IN THE BRIDE ALREADY, MAKING THE BRIDE READY FOR HE ALONE KNOWS HOW TO PUT THE BRIDE IN RAPTURING ORDER.

A STRUGGLE INTO HELL FIRE

 

THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE; Part 2 Volume 2; Preached on 27th December 1997 on THE SON OF MAN’s 40th Birthday; Chapter 2: Action time. Page 33 from verse 17.

2.          17A man struggles his way into hell fire…What!A MAN STRUGGLES HIS WAY INTO HELL FIRE... BY RESISTING THE TRUTH.. WHEN YOU ARE RESISTING THE TRUTH, IT WILL LEAD YOU INTO LIVING FALSE LIFE.

3.          WHEN YOU RESIST THE TRUTH, YOU MUST LIVE A FALSE LIFE, WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. AND YOU ARE INDIRECTLY STRUGGLING YOUR WAY INTO HELL.

4.          Remember, it is not in the mind of God to drop anybody or to destroy anybody. If the entire world will yield themselves to the Word of God, do you think they will not be saved?

5.          They have heard the Word like the people of Nineveh heard it. When the people of Nineveh heard it in the days of Jonah, what did they do? They put on sack cloth and they repented in ashes.

6.          The Lord harkened unto their prayers, and then pardoned them, set them free. Did He destroy Nineveh? Did He destroy Nineveh?

7.          But when Sodom and Gomorrah heard it, they scorned the Message. They laughed at the preacher.  Even the sons in-law of Lot laughed him to scorn together with the rest of his daughters.

8.          [19]And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons-in-law, which married his 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]

9.          Lot had more than two daughters. Those that married his daughters were regarded as sons in-law who laughed him to scorn together with their wives.

10.     SO, GOD HAS GIVEN US EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO BE SAVED. THAT IS WHY HE GAVE US ONE-WAY IN. ONE WAY IN! IF YOU DO NOT COME IN BY ELECTION OR PRE-DESTINATION, WHY NOT COME IN THROUGH “WHOSOEVER”?

11.     Why not come? Do you have a friend? Do you have relations? do you have this? AND whosoever?

12.     [12]And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son-in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: [Genesis 19:12KJV]

13.     [35]but in every anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him [Acts 10:35. English Standard Version]

14.     [35]But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him. [Acts 10:35. New King James Version]

15.     WHY NOT PUT YOUR NAME IN THE WHOSOEVER AND THEN SUBMIT TO THE WILL OF GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART? SURRENDER TO GOD AND SEE WHETHER GOD WILL NOT SAVE YOU. SEE WHETHER GOD WILL NOT GIVE YOU A PORTION WITH THE BELIEVERS. A PORTION WITH HIS OWN PEOPLE.

16.     This is the only condition a slave can enjoy the freedom of the sonship in Christ.  He is no longer a slave, but now a son by trusting in God, believing in God and surrendering to the will of God. What else is left? Absolutely nothing is left, for God cannot destroy that person again.

17.     So, if you are receiving the truth that is coming to you every day because it is contrary to your nature or because it is contrary to what you think and you do not want to subscribe to it, you keep on suppressing your feelings, you keep on giving the impression that as long as you are singing praises, reading the Messages, dancing with us that all is well, sojourning under the same umbrella with THE SON OF MAN is not your Salvation.

18.     It should be salvation, if your heart is right. If your heart is right, it shall be unto your salvation because He cannot be saved without members of this family that have believed in Him.

19.     In Noah’s family, everybody believed in Noah. That was what gave them the salvation. If there was one that behaved like the first son by opting out, do you not know that God would have rejected that one?

20.     That is why the Holy Qur’an just showed us the first son which the Bible was trying to hide away.

21.     [41]So he said: "Embark ye on the Ark, In the name of Allah, whether it move or be at rest! For my Lord is, be sure, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful!" [42]So the Ark floated with them on the waves (towering) like mountains, and Noah called out to his son, who had separated himself (from the rest): "O my son! embark with us, and be not with the unbelievers!" [43]The son replied: "I will betake myself to some mountain: it will save me from the water." Noah said: "This day nothing can save, from the command of Allah, any but those on whom He hath mercy! "And the waves came between them, and the son was among those overwhelmed in the Flood. ...... [45]And Noah called upon his Lord, and said: "O my Lord! surely my son is of my family! and Thy promise is true, and Thou art the justest of Judges!" [46]He said: "O Noah! He is not of thy family: For his conduct is unrighteous. So ask not of Me that of which thou hast no knowledge! I give thee counsel, lest thou act like the ignorant!" ......[49]Such are some of the stories of the unseen, which We have revealed unto thee: before this, neither thou nor thy people knew them. So persevere patiently: for the End is for those who are righteous. [The Holy Quran; Surah 11: 41 – 43, 45 – 46, 49. Abdullah Yusuf Ali Translation]

22.     This is because they knew that the first son did not subscribe to the faith of Noah, just like William Braham’s first son never subscribed to the father’s faith and then, got perished. It has always been like that. 

23.     SO, AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT SUBSCRIBING TO THIS FAITH BY TOTAL SURRENDER, HOLISTIC SURRENDER OF YOUR HEART, YOUR LIFE, YOUR INTELLECT, AND EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU TO BE CONTROLLED, GOVERNED AND ADMINISTERED BY THE WORD OF GOD, THE TENDENCY IS STILL THERE THAT YOU ARE PERISHING IN THE END, FOR GOD KNOWS ALL THAT ARE BELIEVING THIS TRUTH WHOLEHEARTEDLY. I hope I am making sense?

24.     I say, God knows those that are believing this Message wholeheartedly.

25.     There is a portion I marked yesterday. It said, “Now, having introduced Himself to all of you, you are in a position to now know whether this person is One you can half-heartedly believe His word or set His word aside or try to smart yourself or play subtlety. But there is no way it can work for you because He that has introduced Himself is no other person but God Himself. And this is the kingdom of heaven.

26.     I do not know the particular one is located, but I will get it.

27.     THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE; Part 2 Volume 2;Page 33 from verse 16 – 22.

28.     16God is not willing to drop anybody. it is not easy to go to hell fire. in the same way, it is not easy to go to heaven.

29.     17A man struggles his way into hell fire. I repeat. it is not easy to go to hell. A man struggles his way into hell fire. a woman also struggles her way into hell fire.

30.     18how? You must resist the truth for you to believe a lie. you cannot believe truth and lie together.

31.     you must resist truth for you to believe a lie. and I want to tell you, truth can never be resisted.

32.     19RESISTING THE TRUTH MEANS WOUNDING YOUR CONSCIENCE. YOU CAN RESIST IT HERE, BUT IN YOUR BED, TRUTH WILL TORMENT YOU. IN YOUR BATHROOM, TRUTH WILL TORMENT YOU. IN YOUR VEHICLE, IN YOUR OFFICE, IN YOUR FARM, TRUTH WILL TORMENT YOU UNTIL YOU OBEY IT.

33.     20Suppressing truth is only for a while. ... Suppressing the truth is only but a while.... Bury truth, only three days, it will resurrect.

34.     21That is why when I opened up the matter in Jos, before I spoke for two minutes, our Brother Paul said, “It is true! It is true!” So, do not go anywhere. He said it so clear to him.

35.     22Since you said it is true, I do not care how long this error has lasted. There must be one that will correct that error. There is no single error you can carry into the kingdom of heaven. GET RID OF EVERYTHING WRONG IN YOUR LIFE

 

36.     THERE IS NO SINGLE ERROR YOU CAN CARRY INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. YOU SEE WHY GOD SAID WE MUST GET RID OF EVERYTHING THAT IS WRONG IN OUR LIVES. DID HE SAY LEAVE ANY?

37.     Even if you cannot discover what is wrong in your life, through the preaching of the Word, if you have believed, you will see what is wrong in your life.

38.     AND I BELIEVE THAT THE ONLY THING WRONG IN A MAN’S LIFE IS MAN’S INABILITY TO STOP RESISTING THE TRUTH.

39.     MAN HAS THAT NATURE OF RESISTING ANY TRUTH THAT DOES NOT SINK WELL WITH HIM. man resists ANY TRUTH THAT DOES NOT AGREE WITH HIS LIFESTYLE WHICH HE HAS ESTABLISHED FOR TOO LONG.

40.     Man, by nature, does not want anything to touch that area of life. And that area of life has always been the devil’s stronghold in that individual.

41.     There is nobody here who does not know that what I am saying is the truth. Check your life. Pause a little and think about your life.

42.     Check all the areas where truth is being pointed to you and you frowned your face. Even where you do not frown your face, you start boiling inside; You start demonstrating within.

43.     CHECK IT VERY WELL. THAT YOUR NO-GO AREA; that your UNTOUCHABLE AREA; THAT IS EXACTLY SATAN’S STRONGHOLD IN YOUR LIFE.

44.     And God is saying that we must get rid of everything that is wrong in our lives, for we cannot take that error into the Kingdom of Heaven.

45.     Have you played the tapes in your vehicles or somewhere? When you slot it in, while you were waiting for it to play, you see it writing “Error! Error! Error Disc! Error Disc!”

46.     If you slot it in again, it will still display, “Error Disc!” Even if you slot it in twenty times, it will show, “Error Disc.” Will you not be forced to bring it out?

47.     So it is with every human being that has not surrendered fully to Christ. There is an error in your life. There is an error, no matter the spec.

48.     If you watch that error disc, it can be a little spec of sand or water proof or crack that is discovered on that plate. As long as it strongly perched there, that plate can never play. It will keep on saying Error! Error!

49.     Sometimes, it can be factory fault. Sometimes, it can be the carelessness of the user that cracked it. There may be some that has no crack at all. They may be very smooth, but when you slot it in, though very smooth, you will see “Error Disc.” So it is.

50.     Begin to think about it very well because we have come to the end of everything.

 

CHRIST CANNOT BE SAYING A DIFFERENT THING AND THE CHURCH IS SAYING A DIFFERENT THING. WHEN CHRIST SPEAKS, OUR DUTY IS TO SAY AMEN. WHATEVER WE WANT IN THIS CHURCH, WE MUST GET IT FROM CHRIST. WHATEVER WE WANT TO DO, WE MUST CONSULT HIM. HE WILL APPROVE OF IT. IF IT IS NOT APPROVED IN THE SCRIPTURE, HE DOES NOT APPROVE IT. WE WOULD NOT CARRY IT OUT. THUS, CHRIST, THE WORD, DIRECTS THE MOVEMENT OF THE CHURCH, DICTATES THE HABIT OF THE CHURCH, HAS FINAL SAY IN ALL MATTERS. NOBODY CAN CHALLENGE IT.

SANITIZE YOUR HEART

 

I am believing God that everybody staying at home means having no disturbance and having no distractions from outside.

2.          So, I cannot begin to blame my destruction on anybody. Nobody is distracting My attention. I am not waking up in the morning to hustle to Onitsha. There is nothing upsetting Me again.

3.          I do not have any upsets. School days are gone. Working days are gone. Business days are gone.

4.          Now, we have rolled into God’s own day. It is our own day with God from morning till night, and from night till night. Is it not true?

5.          Families that are strictly observing it are growing by tidying up everything that is wrong in their lives. But those that lack the vision of the hour might be thinking it is just for leisure, “Let me sleep. Let me rest a little.”

6.          You will be playing nonsense. You will be talking nonsense. You will not be using the period to scrutinize your lives,and to know if the last blast happens right here, as I am talking now, whether you will not be left behind.

7.          I was talking to the Elders upstairs yesterday morning. Everywhere became calm. What will you say if, as I am talking now, you see our faces transformed and you happen to be the one left behind?

8.          When we vanish, who will tell the neighbours what happened? Then if they ask you why you did not go follow them, what will you say?

9.          In the case of parents, what if while you are there with your children, teaching and admonishing, it happens, and your children vanish from your eyes, while you and your wife will be left here?

10.      What will you tell your neighbours? If they enquire of the whereabouts of your children, what will be your answer? Will you deny what took place?

11.      Then, the whole world will know that you have been fooling yourselves by following God’s children without repenting, and without surrendering.

12.      This is because that same boat would have accommodated you. That same water that saved them would have also saved you. The water that saved Noah and his family drowned the unbelievers.

13.      But this time around, I want you to think a little. To die by water and to die by fire, which is worse?

14.      To tie a man and carry the man into stream/river and dump him there or to pour fuel on the man and set the man ablaze, which one is the most painful death? It is burning somebody alive.

15.      Not that you killed the person and set him ablaze. While he is alive, then, he is set ablaze. Anywhere you run to, you are carrying the fire. You roll on the ground, it is burning you. Jump into the water, it is burning you. Anywhere you run to, it is burning you because it is fire from the face of the Almighty.

16.      They were reviewing the cases of coronavirus last week and I was listening to them in the television. I said, “Okay, so the world has now accepted that they were just wasting their time.”

17.      Why are they now trying to prevent something they cannot prevent?All the countries that tried to prevent it have ended it at square one again.

18.      Even, two presidents that resisted the thing are now suffering it. Presidents of two different countries are now quarantined for testing positive, but they were the people that said it does not exist.

19.      And what is more? The rate at which it is rising, that of every country is rising spontaneously and gradually. Look at the case of Nigeria and how it started. It is growing every day.

20.      And then, check. If one man will make thirty (30) contacts in a day. Thirty people! How many contacts in a day? You can begin to estimate. This is because they are radical human beings that move about.

21.      And some of them never knew they were carrying this thing. Until the whole earth is filled with the virus, Nigeria will not feel the full impact.

22.      Now look at what happened yesterday when the whole world wanted to strangle Donald Trump for stopping the money America was sending to World Health Organization quarterly, saying that sending the money must stop.

23.      He said that the administrators and then, of course, the World Health Organization are not worthy to be there again, for they knew about this case in China but refused to alert the world.

24.      He said that they allowed China to spread this thing all over the whole world. See what America is now suffering.

25.      He said that America has lost over thirty million souls. Even more than that! Over thirty million! Can you imagine that of China? China wanted to tell lies, but China got exposed by China also.

26.      The headquarters of their GSM said, “We have lost twenty-one million lines due to the death of the inhabitants of China by coronavirus.” Within the first quarter, twenty-one million!

27.      And China did not feel the impact because of their population, which is over one billion people. Can you imagine?

28.      So, look at Nigeria. Death is occurring here and there. The managing director of Sosoliso airlines, who was attacked in UK, has died. Can you say there was no money? Can you say he never received attention even in the best place?

29.      What am I saying? Please do not allow the spontaneous spreading of the punishment to carry you away. God does not want to handle the world swiftly because we are still here waiting for the approved day. So, if God should descend swiftly, it will affect us.

30.      For that reason, God sent us home to go and sanitize our hearts. Sanitize our hearts.

31.      Okay, let Me put it this way. Granted that the moment coronavirus disease [COVID-19] was announced in America and many other countries in the world at that same rate operating in China, India and everywhere, it descended in Nigeria, God using it to punish unbelievers, how many among us will escape it?

32.      This is because I am sure and certain that too many have returned to Christ within this period we settled at home. Many wandered away completely. Completely!And gradually, they are finding their way back to the truth, for God is not willing that any should perish.

33.      Who will be disappointed on that great day when the saints shall be translated? He said it is not the prostitute in the hotel; it is not the armed robber; it is not the drunkard; it is not a hooligan; it is not that cultist; it is not those people you think are corrupt. They have already taken their own fair share of the world.

34.      It is you [you and I]. Whoever the person might be who is following Christ, giving the impression that he is with Christ, but not with all his heart. That is a hypocrite. That is the person that will be disappointed on that day. What a shameful thing it will be.

35.      You did not gain the world, and you did not gain heaven. Do you not feel it could have been better the person enjoyed the world like those prostitutes, drunks and every kind of person out there than to punish himself by denying himself the pleasures the world would have offered him and then also forfeit eternal life and forfeit Paradise which is the consolation of the saints.

36.      The only place the children of God shall be consoled for all they passed through here is eternal life is Paradise. And that is why God made it an eternal place where they will now stay throughout all eternity.

37.      I MEAN, A DAY IN PARADISE IS BETTER PREFERRED TO ONE MILLION YEARS IN THE WORLD.

38.      HOLY QURAN SAID IT THAT A MINUTE IN ALLAH IS BETTER PREFERRED THAN TO FIVE MILLION YEARS IN THE WORLD.

39.      THAT IS WHY IF YOU HAVE TASTED THAT THE LORD IS GOOD, AND YOU HAPPEN TO BE GIVEN THAT PRIVILEGE OF IDENTIFYING YOURSELF WITH GOD, YOU CAN NEVER FEEL LIKE LEAVING GOD.

40.      OUTSIDE GOD, THERE IS NOTHING THAT HAS ANY GUARANTEE OF LIFE OR PEACE OR ENJOYMENT.

41.      Okay, look at this boy they call Chukwuebukaat Ogidi. Did he know he was going to die yesterday? He just went out to play on the road instead of staying at home because of coronavirus.

42.      The order said, “Stay at home.” It did not say, “Go to the street.” While they were playing football, were they maintaining the social distance? Who knew who was a carrier there?

43.      Then, they ran into the hands of SARS [State Anti-Robbery Squad]. And one was used as an example, exactly there.

44.      Look at how he perished. Look at how he perished. Has he enjoyed the world? Has he enjoyed life? Has he any part in the life that Christ gives? He is an ordinary cannon fodder.

45.      WHY SHOULD YOU BE A CANNON FODDER? WHY SHOULD YOU BE A CANNON FODDER AFTER KNOWING GOD, HEARING THE TRUTH FROM GOD, FOLLOWING GOD and GIVING GOD THE IMPRESSION THAT YOU ARE BELIEVING HIM, WHEN YOU ARE NOT BELIEVING HIM?

46.      THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE; Part 2 Volume 2;Page 35 from verse 22 – 23. Pay attention. This Message was not handled today.

47.      22Since you said it is true, I do not care how long this error has lasted. There must be One that will correct that error. THERE IS NO SINGLE ERROR YOU WILL CARRY INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

48.      23There is no reasonable excuse before God. As long as God liveth, we are blessed with One who has great authority in heaven and on earth...

49.      Just check the year of this message. As long as God liveth, we are blessed with One who has great authority both in heaven and on earth.

50.      All powers are conferred on Him. And that is the personality we are having dealings with.

51.      And then somebody will now come and fool himself or herself into making Him think he believes when he did not believe. Thinking that He does not know those that have believed and those that have not believed.

52.      I read it in one of these Messages. It said, “If you say you have ever believed THE SON OF MAN and your life remains the same, you are a liar.

53.      For there is no way you can believe the Word of THE SON OF MAN and remain the same. There must be a shift.

54.      You match all of them and know where it is dovetailing; either for good or bad. It is for good, in the sense that, if you are a criminal, you will repent. If you are a heathen and you have seen a better life in Christ, you will repent. I say, if you have seen a better life in Christ, you will repent. It should be on Part 3, volume 1 or 2. That is where you will get it.

55.              I AM MAKING A PROCLAMATION AND DECLARING MYSELF TO YOU. IF YOU LIKE, TAKE IT. IF YOU DO NOT WANT, DO NOT TAKE IT. BUT DO NOT COME TO ME TO QUERY THIS AND THAT THERE, BECAUSE I AM CERTAIN THAT AT THE END, YOU WILL KNOW THAT I AM HE. SELAH. OTHERWISE, I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU TO BELIEVE IN ME AND YOU WILL HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. REJECT MY MESSAGE AND YOU WILL PERISH. NO SECOND CHANCE THERE.

ETERNAL LIFE IS A REWARD

 

The Apostle introduces himself to his people; part 2 volume 2; chapter 2: action time. Page 35 from verse 23 – 34.

2.           23There is no reasonable excuse before God. As long as God liveth, we are blessed with One who has great authority in heaven and on earth to correct every error. That is why you see yourself doing something to which you have said over your dead body.

3.           24This is because it is coming from a Source you cannot resist. It is only God that will make me to do this. It is only God that will make me to do it. And before you know it, you will see God telling you, “Go and do it this way.”

4.           25And before you know it, you are going straight there. 26But I love God for one thing. He cannot send you to your enemy without first of all waiting for you there.

5.           27The essence of going ahead of time is to grant you the favour of your enemy. You will come there [and] He will go into their hearts and force them to say, “Amen! Yes! Yes! It is all over. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

6.           28Watch! Immediately you leave that place, the following day, He will leave them, [and] their eyes will open, “What? Who caused us to behave this way? The man came with charm o. Was I blindfolded when I was saying all these things? What is happening?”

7.           29Somebody said, “It is late. If it is a mistake, let us own it up. But this man is a strong man o. Who knows the type of terrible charms he came here with, look at how he blindfolded us and deceived us.”

8.           30Really, he blinded them because his God went ahead of him. What am I saying? We have witnesses in this Most Holy Faith. All of you that the Lord commanded to go back, even into the world to go and tell people horrible things human beings cannot hear and spare life, [for] they cannot hear it and spare life, and we obeyed, did we encounter trouble on our way? Did we get trouble?

9.           31But we got favour. Before you open your mouth, people will be crying and you will be crying also. At the end of it, He will ask you to go, [and] that it is Satan that caused it.

10.       32Before you obeyed, there will always be a voice that will keep saying, “Do not try it. They will kill you. Why should you say such a thing to somebody?” That is the devil trying to resist.

11.       33For every commandment of God you obey, there is a reward and there is a blessing that will follow. What?

12.       For every commandment of God you obey, there is a reward and there is a blessing that will follow.Satan will not allow you to see it ahead of time.

13.       34What is your problem My people? Now that you have believed, you travel long distances to be here, is there anything in this wilderness to be admired? Am I putting on mask? Am I speaking Greek?

14.       I repeat! 33For every commandment of God you obey there is a reward and there is a blessing that will follow. Satan will not allow you to see it ahead of time.

15.       SATAN WILL NOT ALLOW ANYBODY HE wants to DESTROY TO SEE THAT BLESSING AHEAD. True or false?

16.       WHATEVER THAT IS BLINDING PEOPLE FROM BELIEVING THE TRUTH IS THE GOD OF THIS EVIL AGE. IS IT NOT TRUE?

17.       The Bible said that if our God’s own is hidden, if our God’s own is misunderstood, if our God’s own is not evidently made clear, it is to those whose minds are in the dark, their hearts are blinded by the god of this evil age. That is the devil.

18.       So that they will not see the glorious gospel of Christ which is able to save their lives and give them a place in Paradise with the Almighty God.

19.       [3]But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: [4]in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. [2 Corinthians 4:3 – 4]

20.       THERE IS NO OTHER WAY YOU CAN FIND YOUR WAY INTO THAT ETERNAL REST IF NOT BY BELIEVING GOD. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY ANYBODY CAN FIND HIS WAY. We do not have two ways into Paradise.

21.       So, do not ever listen to fables that I know Bro Elijoe believed it. Begin to flush it out. If I see anybody that believed it, I will know.

22.       That heaven is like main market, if you follow Awka road, you will get there. If you follow Sokoto road, you will get there. You follow old market road, you get there. That is not true. Whoever that is saying it is making God a liar.

23.       CHRIST REMAINS THE TRUTH, THE WAY AND THE LIFE. NO MAN, NO WOMAN no one can ENTER HEAVEN, EXCEPT THROUGH CHRIST. HE IS THE ONLY WAY. HE IS THE ONLY TRUTH. HE IS THE ONLY LIFE.

24.       Anybody that is telling you that there is another way, that person is a liar. If you check Hebrew religion, He pointed everybody to that Only Way, Christ.

25.       If you check the Holy Qur’an, it pointed you to Christ, the Great Mahdi. Is it not true?

26.       Check all of them. They pointed everybody to that same One Supreme God, the very Christ.

27.       So, whoever that is telling that it is like your own village market, every route you follow you get there. That is not true. I say, that is not true.

28.       NOBODY EVER SMELLS PARADISE IN UNBELIEF. NOTHING THAT IS HAVING ERROR EVER LIVES IN THERE.

29.       Can you imagine when He gathered people from all works of life? That is the analogy. That is the illustration. No matter the crowd they gathered for Him for the banquet, He spotted out one who was not wearing the wedding dress. True or false?

30.       Did He allow him to continue? He ordered that he should be thrown out from the window into the outer darkness for he does not appreciate a good thing.

31.       And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: and he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen. [Matthew 22:11 – 14]

32.       A person that does not appreciate a good thing, is there any gain in retaining him? Fling him out. Anybody that will find him or herself in hell fire will be as many as do not appreciate and love good things.

33.       These are the people to whom God did good,but they rather paid Him back with evil.

34.       It now turned out to be an abomination that God remoulded you to become a reasonable and resourceful human being, with a good heart, wisdom and understanding.

35.       Then you turned around to pay God back with evil.  Is there a crime greater than this?

36.       What you now did with God’s favour is worshipping many other different gods, playing smartness and adult sense to God, being deceitful, thinking that God will not find out.

37.       That was why when they gathered; remember they were milling around Him (multitudes), He told them clearly, “I know whom I have chosen from among these multitudes. I know that a good number of you are following Me, not because you are believing My Word.”

38.       You are following Me because of what you are gaining from Me other than eternal life. Because of material gain, that is why you are following. Even if I call you devil, you will say amen and follow Me. [John 6:26]

39.       And you have vowed a vow that you will never vacate from followingMe until we get to the end, provided you will get what you are desiring. And what are you desiring?

40.       IT IS THAT THING YOU ARE DESIRING THAT WILL TAKE YOU INTO PARADISE OR TAKE YOU INTO HELL. THAT IS WHY YOU MUST CHECK THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART. WHY ARE YOU FOLLOWING CHRIST?

41.       Remember that the pot is heated because of you and I. Is it a lie? The pot will be heated more and more so that our real colours will be made manifest.

42.       God said that we must know who we are and where we belong to before that D-day. So, make no mistake about it. There is no mistake. I will read something here also.

43.       33For every commandment from God that you obeyed, there is a reward and a blessing that will follow. Satan will not allow you to see it ahead of time.

44.       If you watch the Bible, it said that the eternal life is your reward for obeying the Lord. Is it not true?

45.       [22]But now since you have been set free from sin and have become the slaves of God, you have your present reward in holiness and its end is eternal life.

46.       [23]For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord. [Romans 6:22 – 23]

47.       You will receive your reward. You that have been following and obeying from the very beginning, this is your reward, which is eternal life.

48.       But to whosoever that is playing hypocrisy, giving the impression that he is obeying, he is being motivated [if there is anything called sign of obedience]by wrong desire and wrong appetite, will that person smell it?

49.       So, God knows the heart of everybody. He knows whatever we are even fomenting in our minds right now.

50.       There is nothing that is going on in a human mind which God does not know. Every step you take, God knows it. All the devices of man are naked before God.

51.       That is why we fear Him. He unveils before us, hidden thoughts and hidden plans we have vowed never to make public. Even if we die, we can never disclose it. I am telling you the truth.

  


BUT I SHOULD NOT BE PROVOKED  BEYOND MEASURE BECAUSE IF YOU THINK I AM JUST A MERE MAN LIKE YOU, AT LEAST, I WILL JUSTIFY MY COMING DOWN HERE BY PROVING TO EVERYBODY THAT I AM MORE THAN WHAT YOU THINK I AM. I ACCOMMODATED YOUR WEAKNESSES. I SAY I ACCOMMODATED YOUR WEAKNESSES. MAY BE MANY OF YOU ARE JUST VERY NEW. YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THIS FAITH [OF] HOW WE TOOK OFF AND WHAT WE PASSED THROUGH. YOU DO NOT KNOW THAT I AM IN THE BUSINESS OF HANDLING SPIRITS, HAVING DEALINGS WITH DIFFERENT SPIRITS, EVEN DANGEROUS SPIRITS, FROM THE BEGINNING OF THIS MINISTRY, EVEN TILL TODAY……

NO HYPOCRITE SURRENDERS TO GOD.

 

Now, we have come to the end of everything and nobody can predict accurately what will follow, even right now.Remember we are waiting every minute.

2.           I read something yesterday concerning 2020 in one of these books also. I read something concerning 2020. Who was with Me that time. I called somebody when I read it.

3.           [A Brother indicated that he was the one.] You heard it? Good!

4.           It said, “EVERYBODY IS STRUGGLING, FIXING THEIR EYES ON THE YEAR 2000.” And that was in the year 1997!

5.           WHAT IF MY EYES ARE FIXED ON 2020? What if My own eyes are fixed on 2020? You can now fly away and let Me see. Anywhere you want to fly to, fly.” 1997!

6.           We better begin now to recollect. Anybody can forget, but God can never forget. If these things were not preserved; I am not saying that your catching away will be 2020.

7.           Remember, it was a Message where the Apostle was introducing Himself.

8.           THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE; Part 2 Volume 2; Chapter 2: Action time. Page 38 from verse 34.

9.           34WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM, MY PEOPLE? Now that you have believed, you travelled long distances to be here. Is there anything in this wilderness to be admired? ...

10.       Even without that one, have we not travelled long distances since the inception of this Faith? How can we afford to perish now?

11.       We have swum through rivers both great and small, especially Myself and Mummy who is here. I know where I started Myown journey which I continued until it came to marriage and I met Mummy.

12.       I will show you that My coming into contact with her is not an accident. It was God’s design. I will read it here now. And that is why she is staying with us till now.

13.       Assuming she is not a daughter of God, she would have left Me. She would have left this house. She would have been where others are.

14.       The same Message she heard, her relations heard it. Even now, they have never believed that they misunderstood it before. But now, they say it is God.

15.       Can you imagine? That the other day, I was trying to enquire about the welfare of My brother in-law, Cletus.

16.       He was pouring every praise on Me saying, “You are the God. You are the God. I thank you. you are the god. Even if others do not know, I know you are God.” He was saying it emphatically from there, and not because he is sick.

17.       Even when he was not sick. Before this problem he is having, he has already been confessing it. He said he has had his own personal experiences with Me several times.

18.       How I appeared before him. Not to get anything from Me. He is well to do. He is rich. He is not a beggar. Even right now, he is not a beggar. He is not a beggar.

19.       Nobody instructed him but God. He has strong faith in God. But I know where the problem lied then.

20.       Even the children. The children developed interest in this Faith, but I know where their problem lies. Their problem is their mother. No more. No less. Their mother can never subscribe to this Faith.

21.       Their mother loves social faith. She loves where, according to the nature of their people in Cross-River state, where they will be prophesying to them, telling them their enemies, and this and that. No nonono. But to live by the dictates of the Word. No! It takes a child of God. It takes a child of God

22.       WHOEVER THAT IS NOT A CHILD OF GOD WILL ONLY SHOW INTEREST IN THINGS THAT WILL TOUCH ON MATERIAL THINGS.

23.       As they followed Jesus Christ, so they followed all the prophets because of material gains. Material gain! No spirituality was attached. But each time the Word went forth, touching the errors in their lives, they got offended.

24.       Whoever that is rejoicing whenever his hand is greased with money, greased with material possessions, you see him blossoming, you see him in the best form.

25.       But when the Word goes forth, he becomes cold. Note that person. The Word is going to the place that is not his desire. The reason why he is following is not the Word of eternal life.

26.       But if you watch the Apostles who were following because of eternal life, they did not even complain.Remember, when they were asked to feed the multitudes, with the little loaf they had, miracle of feeding happened.

27.       Not even one took a grain. They were interested in feeding the crowd. Nobody said, “Let me hide my own” or “Let me put it in my bag, lest it will finish.” Nobody was commanding,“Keep my own oo! Keep my own oo!” All of them obeyed the Master.

28.       The Master was not eating. He said, “Serve the multitude. Serve them!” And they continued serving. They continued serving. Nobody was murmuring. And nobody was complaining. They were not mindful whether it would finish or it will not finish.

29.       God was teaching them something. He was teaching them a great lesson, which is that they should not be selfish. They should be generous. They just showed these people real love so that, even if they will not hear us, they will be condemned after seeing how many loaves we used and how many fishes we used.

30.       He that can do all these things, is He not worthy to be feared? Is He not worthy to be honoured? So, it is a testimony they will never forget.

31.       WHETHER YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE OR NOT A HYPOCRITE, THERE MUST BE A TESTIMONY IN YOUR HEART WHICH YOU CAN NEVER FORGET. AND THAT IS WHERE YOUR CONDEMNATION WILL BEGIN.

32.       FOR IF YOU ARE TESTIFYING OF THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD TO YOU, WHY ARE YOU NOT HOLISTICALLY SURRENDERING TO HIM? YOU ARE SURRENDERING IN PART SO AS TO GET WHAT YOU WANT.

33.       Then immediately the Word was opened, they knew that nothing would come out again, for He said, “I am now about My Father’s business.” What happened? To your tents O Israel. The multitudes left.

34.       Everybody should find his or her way out of this place. I am leaving here. It is clear that everything we are expecting is finished. As it is now,this man is talking a different thing altogether. He is no longer talking about the reason why we came here. I am leaving. You may find your own way. In this way, all of them left.

35.       The same people that fed them remained there.

36.       But one amazing thing that happened about that food. Do you know that everybody ate in parts? A plate each, until all of them were served. And they were satisfied according to the Scriptures.

37.       [19]And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. [20]And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. [Matthew 14:19 – 20 KJV]

38.       [40]And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties. [41]And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all. [42]And they did all eat, and were filled. [43]And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes. [Mark 6:40 – 43 KJV]

39.       [15]And they did so, and made them all sit down. [16]Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. [17]And they did eat, and were all filled : and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets. [Luke 9:15 – 17 KJV]

40.       [10]And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. [11]And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. [12]When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. [John 6:10 – 12]

41.       And the Bible said that He [Jesus] said to the Apostles, “Picked the leftover.”They picked the left overs. The Bible said, “They picked twelve baskets.” Did you get it? He did not say, “Throw the baskets away.” Rather, He said, “That is your portion.”

42.       They [the multitudes] ate one plate each, but the Apostles who patiently followed and served ate in baskets. Any lesson to learn? Any lesson to learn?

43.       If they had murmured, nobody would have gone home with a basket.The patient dog eats the fattest bone

44.       Remember that they were not complaining of hunger. Were they not hungry with those people? But they patiently served them [the multitude].

45.       At the end of the day, what they went home with could sustain them till eternity. Full baskets each.

46.       But for those who came because of eating and drinking, it was, “Just take one plate and go. Take one plate and go.” That is what you will get. It is settlement. I have settled them.

47.       Now, I am about Myfather’s business. So that nobody will say, “I am hungry. And that is why I will not pay attention.” No!

48.       A hungry man is an angry man. He had already fed them to satisfaction, so that they will be at ease to listen, but no way, because their motives for coming were wrong.

49.       NO MATTER HOW GOD BLESSES A HYPOCRITE, IT CAN NEVER MAKE HIM TO SURRENDER TO GOD.

50.       THAT IS WHY GOD SAID, WHATEVER A HYPOCRITE WILL GAIN FROM THIS FAITH BY PLAYING HYPOCRISY, BEFORE EVERYBODY, BEFORE THE ALMIGHTY, HE WILL VOMIT ALL. HE MUST PAY! YOU WILL EAT ONE, AND VOMIT A BASKET.
