You are entitled to your views. Present your views, your feelings, your thinking. No problem. I envy you not. Neither will I be jealous of you. I will not even tell people not to believe for I am a Master Builder. The wind is coming, the rain is coming, the storm, the tempest is coming to shake the two buildings. Any one that collapses, eyes will see. Any one that stands the test of time, eyes will also see. That is why I am taking My time crosschecking every material, crosschecking facts, crosschecking information. I do not pass

information to My people anyhow.

WE ARE GOING TO WRITE THE DECIDER EXAM

 

Remember, this is the day the Lord has made and there is no other thing we have as our agenda today than to give praise to God, worship, revere and adore Him as our God.

2.         And it should be our every-minute character, for God never goes on vacation or leave. For that reason, there is no vacation in serving the Lord until the day we shall all have our collective vacation which we shall spend with Him eternally in Heaven.

3.           That is the Heaven of rest of all children of God. Until then, let us continue to prepare ourselves as students that are preparing to write their final examinations.

4.           For we have come to the end of all things and the only thing that is left is to write our final examinations which will determine who will be in Paradise and who will be in hell.

5.           Until now, everybody has been claiming that he is a saint and that he or she is serving God in spirit and in truth. No one is exempted. It is the right of everybody to make such claims, but it behooves on God to confirm our claims to be real or false.

6.           SO, ANY MOMENT FROM NOW, WE ARE GOING TO WRITE THE DECIDER EXAMINATION. TAKE NOTE OF MY PHRASE. DECIDER EXAMINATION. THE EXAMINATION THAT DETERMINES OUR ETERNAL DESTINATION IS ABOUT TO BE WRITTEN.

7.           IF YOU ARE AN ELECT OF GOD, NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE FOUND, BE IT KNOWN TO YOU THAT ANY TRAINING WITHOUT EXAMINATION WILL PRODUCE NONSENSE.

8.           THERE IS NO WAY A PEOPLE CAN RECEIVE TRAINING WITHOUT BEING EXAMINED BY YOUR TRAINER TO KNOW WHETHER THEY RECEIVED THE TRAINING OR NOT.

9.           God has been drilling us all these years to build in us His own nature that will make Him to live with us as sons and daughters of God who are dependable and reliable, and who will not give Him headache.

10.       For there is no family that feels at ease having stubborn children, stiff-necked children, incorrigible children or children that do not fear God.

WE MUST WORK WORTHY OF OUR CALLINGS IN CHRIST

11.       If you watch the family of Eli, it remained restive because of the two hooligans - Hophni and Phinehas.God called them children of Belial meaning children of Devil.

12.       Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the Lord. [1 Samuel 2:12 KJV]

13.       And you begin to wonder, can a man of God have children of Belial as his sons? The answer is Yes!

14.       When you refuse to go the way of your father, who happens to be a man of God;you refuse to pattern after him; you refuse to step into his shoes, truly speaking, you are going to be a hooligan, a vagabond and a fugitive. A murderer!

15.       So it is with the first son of David, Absalom, who refused to walk in the way of his father and he became a fugitive, a vagabond and a hooligan of which too many stories were told about him.

16.       Who will like to be that type of a child? Who will like to be that type of a human being who will be expecting too many sad stories to be associated with him, born in a godly family yet, errant? What a humiliation! What a disappointment!

17.       THAT IS WHY A SON IS ONE THAT IS ADEQUATE TO BE HIS FATHER’S SUCCESSOR.

18.       If you are not adequate, you are not fitting by all assessments, even by your father’s assessments, by your mother’s assessments, by the community’s assessment. By community, I mean the Brethren that fear and honour the Lord.

19.       If after weighing you from all ramifications and you are a misfit to your father’s throne, you have become an object of ridicule. A disgrace. Before your eyes, a foreigner will take the position meant for you.

20.       THAT IS WHY WE MUST WORK WORTHY OF OUR CALLINGS IN CHRIST, GIVE GOD REASONS WHY HE SHOULD NOT REGRET INCLUDING US INTO HIS MOST HOLY FAMILY AND WHY GOD SHOULD NOT REGRET HAVING US AS HIS OWN SONS AND DAUGHTERS.

21.       THAT IS WHY A TRUE SEED OF GOD STRIVES DAILY TO WALK HIMSELF OR HERSELF INTO THE HEART OF GOD AS A TRUE CHILD WHO WANTS THE BEST.

22.       A CHILD WHO DESIRES THE BEST FOR HIMSELF STRIVES DAILY TO WALK HIMSELF INTO THE PARENTS’ HEARTS SO AS TO BE WORTHY OF THEIR CONFIDENCE.

23.       THE SAME WAY WE OWE IT AS A DUTY, A COLLECTIVE RESPONSIBILITY AS A FAMILY TO STRIVE EARNESTLY TO PROVE OURSELVES WORTHY OF THE CALLING WHEREWITH GOD HAS CALLED US IN HIMSELF AND HAS GIVEN US A DIGNIFIED POSITION IN HIS FAMILY.

24.       Throughout the whole earth, this family is being noised abroad for good and not for evil. The reports I have from the websites as of last week which ended yesterday, are very much heart-warming, and very much revitalizing.

25.       Even if nobody believes in Me here in Nigeria or in Igboland, I am satisfied with the response in the websites, for whoever that is shaking off his head against the truth is not doing Me any harm, but you are doing yourself a disservice.

26.       You are doing yourself the greatest harm, for you are endangering your life here on earth and you have already endangered your eternal destiny, for you are ending it in hellfire.

27.       I do not care your close relationship with THE SON OF MAN. AS LONG AS YOU ARE FOUND IN DISOBEDIENCE TO HIS WORDS, YOU MUST GO TO HELL.

28.       WHATEVER YOU CAN DO WHICH YOU THINK CAN BUY YOU HIS FAVOUR, STOP IT IMMEDIATELY.

29.       THE ONLY THING THAT CAN WIN YOU THE FAVOUR OF THE SON OF MAN IS YOUR TOTAL SUBMISSION TO THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD BY OBEYING HIS WORD.

30.       THE ONLY WAY GOD CAN KNOW THOSE THAT LOVE HIM AND THOSE THAT HATE HIM LIES IN OBEDIENCE TO HIS WORD.

31.       That is why Christ said, if you love Me, keep My words. Obey My words.

32.       If ye love me, keep my commandments.[John 14:15 KJV]

33.       You cannot flagrantly disobey My Word, treat My Word as nothing and go about parading yourselves as My disciples.

34.       You are a mocker. You are a scoffer. You must have your eternal portion where scoffers and mockers will end their eternal destinies.

35.       REMEMBER, IT IS THE END THAT DETERMINES YOUR DESTINY, NOT YOUR BEGINNING.

36.       You might have started very well, but from the look of things, are you still holding on to your stand? Or have you lost your grip? Are you not on the brink of falling away? Or have you not fallen away already before you got to your target?

37.       These are the things we have to consider. Unfortunately, many do not know the Voice they are hearing. Many do not know that this has been that Voice that has been echoing and re-echoing from the very foundation of the world which was made manifest before men in the Garden of Eden.

38.       THE VOICE THAT QUERIED ADAM AND EVE IS THE VOICE YOU ARE HEARING, FOR I HAVE BEEN THERE AS THE ANCIENT OF DAYS. I NEED NO MAN TO COME AND TEACH OR GUIDE ME.

39.       That was the reason why, when I sent My servants, you killed all of them. The entire world conspired and killed all My servants. I sent My only begotten son, thinking they would honour Him as the son of a King, but they killed Him.

40.       I decided personally to come in person. Let Me see whether the Creator and the creature can battle themselves. So, it is now a long drawn battle.

41.       The battle line has been drawn between the Creator and the creature because, all these years, creatures have been having pre-eminence, striving to have pre-eminence everyday above the Creator.

42.       Hence, there is flagrant disobedience to His Words. Some treat Him as their equals, while some treat Him with utter disrespect. Hence, His Words have no place in their hearts and in their families as is being evidenced by the life they are living.

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the very beginning of this Faith, up to this day, I have never for one day stammered. Yes! I have never for one day hidden My identity, but I have been following all of you in your weaknesses, for I know who you are. I have told you that I know My Mission on earth. You do not know Me, but I know you. You do not know My Mission, but I know My Mission. Anything that will not help Me to achieve My Mission, I do not put My eyes there.

CONCEAL NOT YOUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST [1]

Just like I was meditating this morning on why is it that people can hardly hold on to the profession of their faith without wavering from the beginning till the end? And the answer is very clear, very, very clear.

2.           How I wish I can have it as a topic and then teach on it one of these days; CONCEAL YOUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST AND BECOME A PREY, A TOY IN THE HAND OF SATAN.

3.           Hide your identity away from the people around you and then become a toy in their hands. You become an instrument which they will use to blaspheme the name of the Most High God.

4.           Why? You have never made people around you know who you are,what you believenor the God you worship.

5.           WHY DO PEOPLE CONCEAL THEIR IDENTITIES IN THEIR WORK PLACES, IN THEIR BUSINESS SITES, IN THEIR YARD, IN THEIR COMMUNITIES? IT IS BECAUSE THEY ARE ASHAMED OF CONFESSING CHRIST BEFORE THEM.

6.           THEY DO NOT WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD, LEST PEOPLE WILL BEGIN TO JUDGE THEIR CHARACTERISTICS AND THEIR MANIFESTATIONS.

7.           YOU CAN NEVER CONCEAL YOUR IDENTITY WITHOUT PROMOTING THE CAUSE OF THE DEVIL.

8.           Conceal your identity from the people that know you as mere human being, a teacher, a trader, a student, a workman and things like that, but they do not know you as a child of God, for you have not introduced yourself as a child of God.

9.           They may know you as a very good fellow, easily entreated, for which cause they will come to you, but have they seen you and known you, identified with you as a child of God, a man of God, a son of God or a daughter of God?

10.       I want you to see something that took place many years back documented in your Scriptures. How I wish I have time today, God giving Me the strength.

11.       There was a time Jeroboam erred in the sight of God. He lost his shamefacedness, went into idolatry. When he could not find it convenient anymore to appear before the prophet of God, he told the wife to go and consult the prophet of God in disguise.

12.       The wife of Jeroboam, who was prominently known in the land of Israel, disguised herself and appeared before the prophet who was claiming to be blind.

13.       The prophet was assumed to be blind for a season. Immediately the woman came there in disguise to find out the will of God, luck ran against her. The prophet said, “Are you not the wife, the queen of the king of Israel, Jeroboam? Lie not against your conscience. You are the wife of the king of Israel, King Jeroboam.”

14.       The woman now said, “I am.” He said, “Why have you now disguised yourself and come to me?” She fell flat.

15.       [1]At that time Abijah the son of Jeroboam fell sick. [2]And Jeroboam said to his wife, Arise, I pray thee, and disguise thyself, that thou be not known to be the wife of Jeroboam; and get thee to Shiloh : behold, there is Ahijah the prophet, which told me that I should be king over this people. [3]And take with thee ten loaves, and cracknels, and a cruse of honey, and go to him: he shall tell thee what shall become of the child. [4]And Jeroboam’s wife did so, and arose, and went to Shiloh, and came to the house of Ahijah. But Ahijah could not see ; for his eyes were set by reason of his age. [5]And the Lord said unto Ahijah, Behold, the wife of Jeroboam cometh to ask a thing of thee for her son ; for he is sick: thus and thus shalt thou say unto her: for it shall be, when she cometh in, that she shall feign herself to be another woman. [6]And it was so, when Ahijah heard the sound of her feet, as she came in at the door, that he said, Come in, thou wife of Jeroboam; why feignest thou thyself to be another? for I am sent to thee with heavy tidings. [1 Kings 14:1 – 6 KJV]

16.       No matter how you try to mask yourself, God must surely unmask you. God is not too blind or so blind that He cannot recognize your voice.

17.       Watch the man, the supplanterJacob, who was disguised by their mother to appear before the blind father, Isaac, claiming to be the first son. In spite of the mask, in spite of the hiding of his identity, did he hide his voice?

18.       The blind father said, “The hand I am holding is just a mere mask. It resembles the hand of my first son, Esau. But the voice I am hearing is the voice of Jacob, my second son. Well, since you are claiming to be Esau, Esau receive your blessings from me.”

19.       [18]And he came unto his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I; who art thou, my son? [19]And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy firstborn; I have done according as thou badestme : arise, I pray thee, sit and eat of my venison, that thy soul may bless me. [20]And Isaac said unto his son, Howis it that thou hast found it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the Lord thy God brought it to me. [21]And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I may feel thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not. [22]And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and said, The voice is Jacob’s voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau. [Genesis 27:18 – 22 KJV]

20.       DID YOU GET IT? EVERYTHING IN YOU CAN CHANGE, YOUR VOICE CANNOT CHANGE. AMEN.

21.       If you are a seed of God and you negate the instructions God has given to you and go into sin to practice sin with the heathens, you will be doing it in fear. You will be doing it sluggishly.

22.       You will never be as bold as a habitual sinner because it is a strange thing you are trying to learn. You must go in disguise so that people that knew you will no longer recognize you. I am heading somewhere.

23.       A day came when King Saul disguised himself because God had forsaken him. YOU CANNOT DISGUISE YOURSELF UNTIL GOD HAS FORSAKEN YOU OR YOU HAVE FORSAKEN GOD. FORSAKE GOD AND THEN DISGUISE YOURSELF.

24.       What am I saying? Saul now went to the witch of Endor, forgetting that he was the one that killed all the witches and one escaped to Endor, who was a woman.

25.       This time around, Saul was going back to his vomit. Something he hated with perfect hatred, and killed those that practiced it. Saul now went in disguise to the witch of Endor.

26.       On getting there, the woman recognized Saul immediately, although he was not wearing the kingly dress. What happened? The woman said, “O King Saul, the King of Israel, why coming to me in disguise? I know who you are. Have you come to kill me in Endor?”

27.       Saul said, “No. Fear not. I have not come to do you harm to seek your favour.” She asked, “What kind of favour can I offer when you killed all witches and I escaped? What kind of favour can the devil offer to the King of Israel?”

28.       Then dog has gone back to its vomit in disguise. Yet, God also unmasked him there. He said, “Can you please invoke the spirit of late Prophet Samuel for me, for I have an inquiry to make.” She said, “Is that all?” He said, “That is all I need.”

29.       And the woman did as Saul requested. Samuel emerged. Saul’s question was, “Can I know the apparel he is putting on?” The woman described. “Can I know his stature and his face?” The woman described.

30.       The Bible said, Saul concluded immediately that this must be Samuel. And Samuel opened his mouth and called him, “King Saul, they deposed you of Israel. Why have you come to disturb me in my sleep?”

31.       The Bible recorded, said “By the voice that spoke to Saul, he was sure and certain that the voice was no other than that of Samuel”. And immediately he prophesied, Saul got disappointed.

32.       [8]And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee. [9]And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land : wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die? [10]And Saul sware to her by the Lord, saying, As the Lord liveth, there shall no punishment happen to thee for this thing. [11]Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee ? And he said, Bring me up Samuel. [12]And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul. [13]And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth. [14]And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground, and bowed himself. [15]And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up? And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do. [16]Then said Samuel, Wherefore then dost thou ask of me, seeing the Lord is departed from thee, and is become thine enemy? [17]And the Lord hath done to him, as he spake by me: for the Lord hath rent the kingdom out of thine hand, and given it to thy neighbor, even to David: [1 Samuel 28:8 – 17 KJV]

33.       WHAT ARE YOU DISGUISING WITH WHICH GOD CANNOT UNMASK? YOU MUST DEPART FROM GOD AND GOD WILL DEPART FROM YOU BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO WALK IN DISGUISE. AM I MAKING SENSE?

34.       Watch! A day came when Abraham, our forefather disobeyed God’s instructions that warned him, “Come what may, never leave the land of Canaan for Egypt for help.” Abraham said Amen.

35.       The Lord allowed grievous famine to befall Abraham and his family in the land of Canaan. A land that was promised to be flowing with milk and honey.

36.       What happened? Abraham forgot God’s instruction. Not that he forgot it. He flagrantly decided to seek help from a forbidden nation. Abraham disguised himself and disguised his wife, for Abraham has left the presence of God. And went to Abimelek, the King of Egypt.

37.       On getting to Egypt in disguise, Abraham pretended about his duly married wife, who had been living with him for 65 years; for Sarah was 65years when they departed from Babylon.

38.       Because Abraham was going in disguise, he never wanted the people of Egypt to know that he was a man of God. He never wanted the wife to tell them that she was a wife of a man of God. That was what Abraham did.

39.       Because he concealed his identity, he injected lies into the wife by instructing the wife to pretend that she is no longer a wife but a sister, “Lest if you disclose that you are my wife, Egyptians being what they are, they are evil, you are fair to look at, and in the attempt to seduce you from my hands, they will kill you.”

40.       He disguised himself, pretended to be a brother and no longer a husband. By so doing, he deceived Abimelek. Abimelek went after the wife and started proposing marriage.

41.       What happened? Abimelek, one afternoon, from his window saw the same person he was proposing to marry, supposedly claiming to be the sister to Abraham. He saw Abraham romancing Sarah and then surmised Abraham. Abraham rejected again, “No. She is not my wife. She is my sister.”

42.       Then the king took the woman to his bosom. That same night, when the woman was not touched by the king, the Bible said “The Lord appeared unto Abimelech in Egypt.”

[2]And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, Sheis my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah. [3]But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife.[Genesis 20:2 – 3 KJV]

43.       No matter where you are going to commit that crime, God is there. If you go to Egypt, for you sake, God will go to Egypt. You go through the fire, God will go through the fire.

44.       Where will I stay and commit that crime where God will not catch Me; where God will not see Me; where the eyes of the Lord will not see Me?

45.       Will I run to the sky? He is there. Will I run to the deepest part of the earth? His eyes will search Me out. Will I jump into the ocean? His hand will reach out and bring Me out.

46.       Darkness is like day unto the Lord. Where then will I hide and commit iniquity and God will not see Me? Where will I stay and practice righteousness and God will not see Me?

47.       As you are doing the evil of disguising yourself, God has forsaken you, and you have forsaken the Lord. This is because you have forsaken the Lord, and the Lord has forsaken you. That was exactly what the Lord told King Saul. “Because you have forsaken the Lord, the Lord has forsaken you.”

48.       God is with you while you are with Him. If you forsake Him, He will surely forsake you. Is that not scriptural? Get Me along the line.

49.       [2]and he went out to meet Asa, and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The Lord is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.[2 Chronicles 15:2]

50.       God appeared to Abimelek, the King of Egypt and said, “My friend, I know you are the king. You have the power to amass to yourself, even to conscript any type of woman you want. It is your right as a king over your kingdom. But I warn you, steer clear from this one. This is the wife of my servant, Abraham. For fear, he disguised himself. Release her!”

51.       The Bible said, in the morning, Abimelek summoned Abraham to appear before him together with Sarah. The two appeared. He said, “Abraham, why have you decided to unleash this type of evil upon me and my people? Why have you decided to bring down the wrath of the Almighty God against me, my family and my generations? 

52.       Why did you conceal your identity? Why did you disguise yourself? Why did you not tell me you are a servant of God? Why did you not tell me that this one is your wife? Look at the havoc you have caused. Do you not know the abomination?”

53.       The Bible said Abraham said, “O King, let not your fury be upon me for I was sore afraid that I may be killed if I should tell everybody that she is my wife and disclose myself as the servant of the Most High God.”

54.       The man said, “You erred exceedingly. Look at the evil you have brought upon me even right now. Take your wife and then live in peace as much as you want to live in the land. I assure you of a surety, no human being will do you harm. People will show you favour.”

55.       Now the Word of the Lord came back to Abimelek, said, “Abimelek, well, for lusting after this woman and for even bringing her into into your house, though you never touched her, all your daughters must be barren. All your first born must the barren.”

56.       And the Bible said it happened as the Lord prophesied. If bringing the woman alone into the house without touching her could cause barrenness in the whole family; the men will marry and be barren; the daughters will marry and be barren, what if he touched her? What if he married her?

57.       Now, did Abraham go scot free? The Lord punished Abraham by allowing his enemies to attack him because of that wild profligacy and wild life, for no sinner will go unpunished.

58.       [8]Therefore Abimelech rose early in the morning, and called all his servants, and told all these things in their ears: and the men were sore afraid. [9]Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said unto him, What hast thou done unto us? and what have I offended thee, that thou hast brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin?

59.       thou hast done deeds unto me that ought not to be done. [10]And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What sawest thou, that thou hast done this thing?

60.        And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place ; and they will slay me for my wife’s sake. And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother ; and she became my wife. ...... [17]So Abraham prayed unto God : and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they barechildren.

61.       [18]For the Lord had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah, Abraham’s wife. [Genesis 20:8 – 10, 17 – 18 KJV]

62.       The same thing happened to his first son, Isaac. Isaac took Rebecca and denied Rebecca again, all in the land of Egypt. Similar punishments followed.

63.       [1]And there was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. [2]And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of. ...... [6]And Isaac dwelt in Gerar. [7]And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, Sheis my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look upon. [Genesis 26:1 – 2, 6 – 7 KJV]

64.       But before then, they had already flagrantly disobeyed God’s injunction. God left them, and they were moving without security. They lost shamefacedness because the moment you lose your security from the Lord, you must lose all feelings of shame, man or woman alike.

65.       What am I trying to say? Let Me just cut it in a nutshell. The moment God has forsaken you, you have forsaken the Lord, for God cannot forsake you until you forsake the Lord. You must be walking in disguise.

66.       You conceal your identity in your workplace. Everybody will use you to experiment evil, for they do not know who you are. They only know you as their colleague. They do not know you as any other thing.

 

Address the truth. When you address the truth, you divorce religion and culture for God’s teachings cut across all religious and cultural barriers. I am not here holding My cultural and religious identity. No! I am only in possession of God’s identity, A Man representing God. Finish! That is My identity.

CONCEAL NOT YOUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST [2]

If you are a man of God, and you do not let people around you to know that you are a man of God, they have no respect for you except for whatever your character will be telling them.

2.         So it is with a woman. The moment a woman conceals her identity, fools, sinners will use her to experiment all forms of wild life. True or false?

3.           There is no virtuous woman who is married to a man of God who hides her identity without running into difficulty with people around.

4.           The moment you see people, men, evil-possessed young men and adult men, milling around you, if you happen to be the wife of a minister of the gospel, check your life.

5.           You have forsaken the right way, through your dressing, through your countenance,everything will see denial of the truth. You are now walking in disguise.

6.           If they dance, you join them. If they wear trouser, you wear with them. You will be doing many things in secret. To you, it is a secret, but before God, is it a secret?

7.           Hear Me very well. The moment a woman who is a woman of God in the sense that she is married by a Minister of the Gospel, a child of God;

8.           Hear Me very well. There is no way she can forsake God without going about opening her legs anyhow for every kind of person.

9.           With fanta, with bread, with money, with empty promises, she will be lured out by silly men because they do not know her identity.

10.       All they know is that she is fair to look at and she is a very good woman,“I love you. I admire you, you are ever young.” Watch! So it is to a man.

11.       Just like I am there at Upper Iweka, my calendars are there. My books are there.  I give all of them out free. Anywhere I go, “Son of Man! Daddy!” Everywhere.

12.       Then, how can I after showcasing Myself at Upper Iweka where many come and see the pictures without buying anything, while some will buy something. They have read My books everywhere. Whatever might be My Faith, hear Me very well, have I not advertised it?

13.       I am now a known figure. For Me to begin to misbehave Myself, I must, first of all, depart from God and then disguise Myself. Satan will be telling Me to go to places where I will not be seen.

14.       ANYWHERE YOU WILL GO WHERE GOD WILL NOT SEE YOU AND WHAT YOU ARE DOING, DOES NOT EXIST. IT DOES NOT EXIST. IF YOU KNOW WHERE THAT PLACE IS, PLEASE TELL ME. IT DOES NOT EXIST.

15.       SO THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN CONCEAL YOUR IDENTITY WITHOUT LOSING YOUR IDENTITY COMPLETELY. HIDE AWAY WHO YOU ARE, AND LOOSE YOUR IDENTIFY IN CHRIST.

16.       Hear Me very well. You cannot tell somebody that you are the wife of a Pastor, and then people will be talking to you anyhow. The respect is always there, for that which you claim to be, you will live to justify.

17.       But if you claim it with mere claim and then join them in their wild life, they will know you are a chaff. They know you are a chaff, and they will use you to do experiment. Whatever suggestion, you will buy their idea.

18.       That is why I told Brethren yesterday, “Go home. It has been revealed to Me that many of your wives and their children are now going to Pentecostals in secret. They are attending prayer meetings in secret on ordinary days.  They go out in the morning with a little bible in their hands. They go for prayer meetings. They are playing prostitution and harlotry. They have joined their colleagues in the world.”

19.       That is not all. Their colleagues in the world are now espousing them to different men to make money. Some are going to Sisters Fellowship in secret. They know the locations. Their children are equally following them to one place or the other.

20.       I am telling you what is happening now. In the morning, the man will go away. The woman will go away without disclosing where she is going.

21.       If she says she is going to Main Market, you will see her at Omagba. She says Omagba, you will see her in Housing Estate. What is she doing there?

22.       God is seeing all these things. After revealing all these things, one of our Elders stood up yesterday and confirmed it to be hundred percent true.

23.       And nobody confirmed it but Bro Shadrach Onah, because he goes about due to the nature of his work, and he sees them. He sees most of them.

24.       Can you believe that somebody now, who says she is the wife of a Minister goes about on the street with short knicker?

25.       She goes out with body hug polo [T-shirt] at a time when nobody will come near and they know where they are hiding. Some go with mini trousers. The one that stops on the knee, with gown on top. I am telling you.

26.       There is no type of disguising they are not doing and the Lord is catching them all. Why? First, they have departed from God. And God had also departed from them.

27.       And what is more? Anywhere they go, luck will run against them. They will meet somebody who knows them as this or that. Somebody they least expected will suddenly meet them.

28.       Because they have lost all feeling of shame, they are no longer in the hand of God for salvation but for destruction. The feeling of shame has gone. They will never change their mind. They will not stop.

29.       Rather, they will conclude that this is what others are doing. That is rubbish. A sinner does not believe the truth. A sinner does not believe the truth.

30.       Our Faith has boundaries. We must operate within the boundaries of the Faith so that we will not be judged by God. If Dinah had wondered within the boundaries of the Faith, will there be any problem?

31.       Dinah hid her identity as the daughter of Jacob, a man of God. And look at what happened, her friends, heathens, raped her.

32.       [1]And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. [2]And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.

33.       YOU MUST HIDE YOUR IDENTIFY, CONCEAL WHO YOU ARE FROM THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU, BEFORE YOU WILL GO INTO WILD LIFE.

34.       YOU BECOME A TOY. YOU KNOW WHAT A TOY IS? AN EXPERIMENTAL INSTRUMENT IN THE HAND OF SATAN.

35.       If you are a man, the same way. Women will be using you. Outlandish women, outlandish ladies will be milling around you.

36.       THIS IS BECAUSE THE PEOPLE THAT MILL AROUND YOU WILL TELL THE GREATEST STORY OF WHO YOU ARE.

37.       YOU HAVE WHAT IS ATTRACTING THEM. THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE SHOWCASING. FOR YOU CANNOT SHOWCASE CHRIST AND THE DEVIL WILL BE ATTRACTED. WHEN YOU SHOWCASE THE DEVIL, THE DEVIL WILL SHOW INTEREST. SHOWCASE CHRIST, AND THE DEVIL WILL RUN AWAY.

38.       Only those that belong to Christ will be attracted to your side, for birds of the same feather must flock together. Did you get the message?

39.       Watch! It is now nothing in the sight of all. Let Me say it. We do not have people that call themselves mothers again. To hold the hands of heathen boyfriends, man friends, on the street is no sin again.

40.       Their delight is now the heathens because Brethren have nothing to offer them. I am telling you the truth. Brethren have no money. So money is the only thing. Our brothers have no money, so they are now going after Main Market men.

41.       People that drive posh cars who will give them the much they can, “After all, it is a matter of opening my legs.” And they will still come home and pretend that all is well. Nothing happened.

42.       If you go to the book of Proverbs 2:16, the Bible said, “This is the way of a wayward woman.” A wayward woman will go out, mess herself up, come back home and pretend as nothing happened.

43.       Wisdom will save you also from the aldulterous woman, from the wayward woman with her seductive words, [Proverbs 2:16 NIV]

44.       What am I saying? Now we are at home, any moment from now, some of you will be going back to Enugu. You have been trained here. You have also been helping in training others. Now, the world knows you as Evangelist, as Apostle, as Pastor.

45.       Before this week runs out, at least our Apostle and our Pastor will be on their own at Enugu to continue with their studies and some other things they are doing because they have been recalled.

46.       Will it stop us from worshiping God here? Will God go on vacation at Enugu? Will going to Enugu stop your Ministry?

47.       Now, if you want to make full proof of your Ministry, it is now at Enugu. But when you go there and conceal your identity, I am telling you, silly women, silly women within and without, for all that are in the Faith do not believe in God.

48.       They are merely romancing with us. They are not with us. And they know they are not with us,because of what they are manifesting,by their secret lives, and by the type of people they mingle with.

49.       This is because if they are with us, they will be mingling with the Brethren so that we cannot query them, but their delight remains the heathens.

50.       That will show you who they are. How can a woman go after heathen men if not for money? How can a heathen man go after one that says she is a child of God if not to humiliate and disgrace her?

51.       Sometimes, some of those people know them. Know their husbands, andknow that they are professing godliness and will know that they are mainly after money.

52.       They will come to them, using them to humiliate the Faith, humiliate the name of God, humiliate their family and humiliate their husbands. And they will feel it means nothing.

53.       Now, I am rounding off. Everybody is about to appear before Me, you are writing your final examination anytime from now. I call it THE DECIDER EXAMINATION.

54.       WHAT IS THE SECRET OF MY SUCCESS? EVEN IN MY YOUTH, I NEVER CONCEALED MY IDENTITY. MY LIFE WAS PLAIN. WHATEVER I SAID I HATED, I HATED IT. WHATEVER I LOVED, I GO AFTER IT. AND I DO NOT DRAW BACK.

55.       Once My mind is made up in doing something, I weigh it between the two extremes and I know I have received God’s approval. You will see Me neck deep into it. And at the end of the day, people will see the hand of God there.

56.       And God nurtured Me that way in my youth. I got married, and God has been nurturing Me up till this day. At the age of sixty-five, I am no longer a kid.

57.       I was young, but now I am old. I have never seen a child of God, a real seed of God, devoted, committed to the course of Christ, forsaken along the way or going about disguising himself.

58.       God has always given him a help, a leverage and protection. God has always been behind that person, fighting his battles and waging the war.

59.       That which I could not eliminate, for there are certain types, you will have that will be difficult for you to eliminate. I hope I am making sense?

60.       Elimination means removing those things that are wrong; Those things that are strongly attached to you.

61.       There are some people who might be having wrong motives who might be attached to you. They will become too tight for you to remove their hands from your waist. It will take God to come and help you.

62.       When you surrender to God, He knows how to bring in something that will bring enmity between the two of you. When you distance, the person might be astonished.

63.       Yes! This is because the person may not know you have been praying to distance yourself all these years, but you did not know the way to follow.

64.       But God has decided to put something in between two of you so that that distance can now be justified.

65.       You cannot ask M, “Why distancing from Me.” And I will not ask you, “Why distancing from Me”, for I know that God has stepped in. 

66.       When God steps in, somebody must be saved. And God is stepping in to save the Elect, so that the evil person will continue in his evil doing. Are you getting Me?

67.       So it is in marriage. When a man is in marriage with somebody he does not love, somebody who hates God, hear Me very well, it can never linger till the end. It can never subsist till the end.

68.       Even at a very old age, God will inject something there to create disaffection that will cause the two to part, or cause one to marry another.

69.       This is true. The first will be alive, and the man will marry another one, who will give him the desire of his heart.

70.       This is because it takes a man to decide how many wives he will take. And he has no wife until he has taken the one that meets his divine purpose.

71.       Everybody here has a divine purpose why God made him. If God made you to be a hypocrite He will use among us to showcase all that I am saying, you are going to fulfill all.

72.       A true seed of God does not fulfill dangerous prophecies. God created the evil man for the evil day. The evil woman for the evil day.

73.       The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. [Proverbs 16:4 KJV]

74.       When God wants to showcase a hypocrite, he will use one from among us who has been following us from the very beginning. If He wants to show us an errant Minister or his wife, God knows how to do it. I am telling you God’s truth.

75.       God will not use a good instrument in His hand to fulfill such thing. Rather, God will withhold him from running into difficulty with God, for the Bible said, whoever God loves, He withholds him from sinning against him.

76.       No matter the way it comes, God is always there to hinder him. He will bring in one thing or the other even to frustrate him, for God frustrates such wicked ambitions because He does not want you to be at loggerheads with God.

77.       BUT IF YOU COME TO A POINT WHERE WHATEVER YOU PLAN, GOD WILL ALLOW YOU, YOU ARE TOTALLY LOST. YOU HAVE LOST GRIP OF YOU. AM I MAKING SENSE? GOOD.

 

 

 

I HAVE BLOWN THE TRUMPET IN ZION. I HAVE TOLD YOU THAT TIME IS FINISHED. HOWEVER, SOMETHING REMAINETH IN THE BRIDE. I AM PUTTING FINISHING TOUCHES ON THE BUILDING, BECAUSE I AM THE MASTER BUILDER. I DO NOT WANT MY WORK TO BE DESTROYED BY FIRE. I WANT MY BUILDING TO STAND THE TEST OF THE FIRE. THUS, DO NOT THINK I AM CRAZY. I AM NOT CRAZY.

EVERY MAN IS WRITING HIA OWN HISTORY

 

Just like we are here in Nsugbe. We are known everywhere. As unknown, yet known everywhere. Tell Me how you are going to disguise yourself. I mean, tell Me.

2.           I was going to Onitsha the other day, and I carried that Pastor over there. He said, “Pastor, I respect you and your people. You really love each other.

3.           I now noticed you worship God now at home. And in spite of staying at home, I hear your praises. I listen to your Messages.

4.           All your children and all your Brethren are still clustering around you. And they are all looking as fresh as fresh can be. That goes to show that God is using you to take good care of them. That goes to show that God is using You to take good care of them.

5.           Even during the COVID-19 lockdown, I was seeing them and they were testifying on the streets of how you took care of all your Brethren to the extent that you even vowed to sell your vehicle to make sure they do not starve.”

6.           I asked him, “Who told you?” He said, “Do not ask me. People talk about You everywhere.”

7.           At last, he said he was there with the vulcanizer. A young man, Osy. That immediately I blew his horn and waved, the young man started talking about Me. And he said, “Never have I come across a man like this.”

8.           The young man said that he is alive today and opened this shop is credited to this Man [referring to THE SON OF MAN].

9.           He said that he cannot count the number of tyres He [THE SON OF MAN] gave him [Osy] free of charge to start the business.

10.       Neither will he count the amount He has given him, talk less of the advice. Osysaid that this man [THE SON OF MAN] paid his mother’s bills in the hospital.”

11.       I said, “Sir, you mean Osy told you this?” He said, “You do not know what people are saying about You. Go to the streets. That is why they bow down before You and Your children.

12.       Your name rings bell for good. And whoever that attempts to do you harm has incurred the wrath of the whole community, not Nsugbe alone.” I said, “Okay.”

13.       He said, “I want to tell You. Keep it up. You do not know how great You are. People extol your good qualities. They noticed that You are training children that You do not even know where they came from.”

14.       You do not discriminate. You help the poor. You help the needy. You help people from all works of life. What is more? You give them the Message of the youth.”

15.       He said, “Who could control these youths? You came and gave them the Messages. I have my own copy of PRESERVE YOUR YOUTH AND ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS.

16.       You shared it for these youths. And then,You called a meeting between two opposing cult groups, gave them feast and reconciled them. From that day till now, we have never noticed any clash. No bloodbath. No insults. No abuse.

17.       He said that people now walk about freely. Nobody snatches handsets or carries your bag on the streets. Whoever that tries it, everybody will recognize and hold that person, recover the stolen items and arrest the person.

18.       He said, “Sir, You have done much. Keep it up.”

19.       You see. It pays to listen to people. If I did not carry that man that day, I would not have known it.Then he opened his mouth to talk about the man they call Papa Chioma.

20.       I said, “I do not know him.” Surprised, he said, “You know him. He is evenYour friend. And he is my brother.”

21.       I enquired from him, “Who is that person?” I did not know that the man I call Ikembaalso bears the name, Papa Chioma. He is my friend who came back from Ghana. The one that lost his son.

22.       He said, “Papa Chioma has been talking and saying that you take care of his family. Even when he was in Ghana, he called You. They were in trouble.

23.       When he came back, the son was at Nnewi. He beckoned on You. And You responded immediately. Although the baby died, but he said he will never forget Your contributions.” Can you imagine?

24.       But when I was doing those things, did I go with anybody? It was just a free offer, “Please when you get to the hospital, use it and see whether the child can recover.” It can mean nothing, but to him, it means a lot.

25.       WHAT AM I SAYING? WE SHALL BE REMEMBERED FOR OUR GOOD DEEDS, BUT OUR BAD DEEDS WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN.

26.       ALWAYS HAVE IT IN MIND, THAT EVERY MAN ON EARTH IS WRITING A HISTORY FOR HIMSELF. WHATEVER WE ARE DOING HERE ON EARTH, WE ARE WRITING A HISTORY.

27.       That is why, if you are a child of God, be friendly with everybody, but be careful with yourself. Be friendly with everybody, but be careful with yourself.

28.       This is because at the end of the day, you are going to give account of yourself. You will not give account of anybody but yourself.

29.       When the Lord will ask you a question when you stand before Him in judgment; one single question, you will bow your head down in shame. The head that had been straight will now be bowed in shame.

30.       People forget that, one day, they will lie prostrate with their eyes towards the sky. No reverse. No reverse!

31.       Assuming that I never intervened last night, because My wife was crying and pleading. I had already tried to draw a line in My heart against Amankem, not against the wife.

32.       This is because Amankem has always been against Me; and I have been against Him.

33.       That was why when he took the photograph of My Original Body, I made a public statement, “I am happy no other person took this photograph but Amankem. Let Me see whether this will cause him to believe in Me.”

34.       It is on record. It is everywhere. Amankem does not believe in Me and I can never believe in him.

35.       WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN GOD, GOD WILL BELIEVE IN YOU. YOU DISBELIEVE GOD, GOD WILL DISBELIEVE YOU. YOU ACCEPT GOD, HE WILL ACCEPT YOU. YOU REJECT HIM, HE WILL REJECT YOU.

36.       For the same measure you measure unto God will surely come back to you.

37.        [38]Give, and [gifts] will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will they pour into [the pouch formed by] the bosom [of your robe and used as a bag]. For with the measure you deal out [with the measure you use when you confer benefits on others], it will be measured back to you.[Luke 6:38 AMP]

38.       That is why I do not plead with you to do this or to do that. Anything you want to do, do it because you have your right.

39.       But always have it at the back of your mind that you are coming before THE SON OF MAN, to account for all your deeds, both on secret and in open places. Amen.

40.       So be sure that something is evil because God says it is evil.

TEMPLE WORSHIP IS

IDOLATORY [1]





Do not forget my topic. When you go to Enugu, do not disguise yourselves. Do not hide your identity. Publish your identity far and wide. Are you getting what I am saying?

2.         That will take Me into another area of life. All along we have been worshipping in our homes, and some people might be thinking we have departed from the truth.

3.           It is now that we have embraced the holistic Truth. It is now that we have embraced the holistic Truth. It is now that we can say we are a continuation of the New Testament church or we are a continuation of the Acts of the Apostles.

4.           Like I told you, from the book of Matthew to the book of John, I mean, the Gospels, you will never see anything called church. It does not exist. No synagogue. No temple. No cathedral. It does not exist.

5.           Jesus predicted the church He will establish, “Upon this rock, I will build My church.” My church! “The gates of hell will never prevail against it.”

6.           [16]And Simon Peter answered and said,Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God[17]And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. [18]And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. [Matthew 16:16 – 18 KJV]

7.           Did He say, “Go to Jerusalem and build a cathedral? Go to anywhere?” Now, I want you to see that on the day of Pentecost, according to Acts Chapter 2, “They were in the upper room.”

8.           [12]Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day’s journey. [13]And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alpheus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. [14]These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. [15]And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about a hundred and twenty,) [Acts 1:12 – 15 KJV]

9.           Upper room means a room in upstairs. Did you get the Message? Not in the lower room. A room in the upstairs. There they gathered. And then, that was the Pentecost day.

10.       Remember that when Jesus was alive, pay attention and in the human form, a day came when He took His 12 disciples to where He was living. And the Bible said, “He took them to the upper room, where He was living.”

11.       [35]Again the next day after, John stood, and two of his disciples; [36]and looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! [37]And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. [38]Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou? [39]He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour[40]One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. [John 1:35 – 40 KJV]

12.       There He explained all the parables to them. Did you get the Message? That was where Judas [not Iscariot] asked Him, “Master, why have You decided to reveal the Mystery of the Kingdom to us and reveal who You are to us, but not to the world?”

13.       Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? [John 14:22 KJV]

14.       So if I am living in an upstair, it is scriptural? Did you get the Message? If I am living in an upstair, the Man Jesus lived in an upstair. The Acts of the Apostles started in an upstair in the upper room.

15.       If I once lived in a rented apartment and ministered to God, ministered to humanity; a day came when Saint Paul lived in a rented apartment for two good years, ministering to the needs of the Brethren, preaching the Gospel, blessing all that came to Him and explaining the Mystery of the Kingdom. Is it not scriptural?

16.       [23]And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening. ......  [30]And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, [Acts 28:23, 30 KJV]

17.       Give Me attention. From that day, after Pentecost, Watch! God said they never entered any synagogue.

18.       WHATEVER YOU CALL SYNAGOGUE, TEMPLE OR CATHEDRAL IS A CONTINUATION OF THE OLD LEVITICAL ORDER. A CONTINUATION OF THE JEWISH SYSTEM OF WORSHIP.

19.       Jesus was entering the temple every Sabbath day, only to reveal Himself and His Ministry to them, knowing that they only met every Sabbath day in the temple.

20.       Remember in the beginning, that was Abraham. Is there any location of Abraham’s temple? Any synagogue? Any temple? Isaac, any temple? Any synagogue?

21.       In the days of Jacob, it was only under a tree. He brought some stones together, erected an altar and called it Bethel, “God is here and I know it not.”He named that place “Bethel”, meaning God’s awful entrance to Heaven.

22.       [18]And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it. [19]And he called the name of that place Beth-el [the house of God]: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.

23.       A little while, He left Bethel. Whatever that became of the cathedral or temple made up of few stones, that was the end of it. Amen.

24.       It was a journey. He was on a journey. We are pilgrims, we are strangers. In the wilderness, any cathedral? In Egypt, any cathedral? I mean, in the land of Goshen, any temple? Any cathedral? They were in their individual homes.

25.       Now, in the Acts of the Apostles, you see not even one. What happened? How did that temple worship come into being?

26.       It was David who saw the Ark of God and said, “How can I live in a citadel mansion when the Ark of God is lying outside? I will build a big mansion and then place the Ark there so that people will be coming there.”

27.       [1]Now it came to pass, as David sat in his house, that David said to Nathan the prophet, Lo, I dwell in a house of cedars, but the ark of the covenant of the Lord remainethunder curtains. [1 Chronicles 17:1 KJV]

28.       That was the origin of denomination. Pay attention. He started tasking the people on how to get the money, raising materials.

29.       God said, “Do not build for me. Your last son, Solomon will be the one. You are bloody. Stop at providing materials. Period!”

30.       [3]And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came to Nathan, saying, [4]Go and tell David my servant, Thus saith the Lord, Thou shalt not build me a house to dwell in: [5]for I have not dwelt in a house since the day that I brought up Israel unto this day; but have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another. [1 Chronicle 17:3 – 4 KJV]

31.       There was nothing called temple worship until Solomon built one. Then, how did he build it? It was a land purchased with money, in the hands of Ornanthe Jebusite; that is causing trouble today.

32.        [22]Then David said to Ornan, Grant me the place of this threshing floor, that I may build an altar therein unto the Lord: thou shalt grant it me for the full price: that the plague may be stayed from the people. ......  [25]So David gave to Ornan for the place six hundred shekels of gold by weight. ...... [28]At that time when David saw that the Lord had answered him in the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite, then he sacrificed there. [1 Chronicles 21:22, 25, 28 KJV]

33.       What is causing trouble? The land where earthly temple was built, for they think God is there when God is not there. Then they were gathering there until Jesus was born.

34.       Jesus saw that the people now regarded the temple as holy; and that people can only be holy when they go to the temple. In their homes, they lost holiness.

35.       Then He asked them a question, “The temple and He that makes one holy, which one should be revered? Which one should be respected and honoured, for you honour the structure[temple] more than He that declared the temple Holy?”

36.       [19]You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar which makes the gift sacred? [Matthew 23:19 AMP]

37.       Then He predicted that a day is coming, when no stone shall be left upon the other.

38.       [1]JESUS DEPARTED from the temple area and was going on His way when His disciples came up to Him to call His attention to the buildings of the temple and point them out to Him. [2]But He answered them, Do you see all these? Truly I tell you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down. [Matthew 24:1 – 2 AMP]

39.       “I will pull it down. I tell you, armies from Rome will come and devastate the whole of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be laid desolate. This temple must be pulled down. Let me see whether you have pulled down God.”

40.       [41]And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, [42]saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. [43]For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, [44]and shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation. [Luke 19: 41 – 44 KJV]

41.       Pulling down the structure, does it mark the end of worship? He wanted to put them to test. Immediately it was pulled down, there was no temple there anymore.

42.       Pay attention. Remember it had already been pulled down before. It was rekindled and renewed in the days of Nehemiah and Ezra.

43.       And then it was pulled down again in the days of Jesus to show you that God had never delighted Himself in temple worship. It is idolatry.

44.       After Pentecost, the Bible said they were worshiping, going from house to house. House to house fellowship, loving and appreciating one another, praising the Lord, sharing the good news of the Kingdom; and sharing whatever the Lord blessed them with, in common among themselves.

45.       [1]I commend unto you Phoebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchreae: [2]that ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succorer of many, and of myself also. ...... [5]Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my well beloved Epenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ. [11] Salute Herodion my kinsman. Greet them that be of the household of Narcissus, which are in the Lord.[Romans 16:1 – 2, 5, 11 KJV]

46.       And they grew in number. God was adding people to them on a daily basis. In that Acts of the Apostles as they journeyed along; when you read “Church at so so and so”,where is the church located?

47.       If you go to 1st Corinthians Chapter 4, Saint Paul said, “Whatever I am teaching in the Church at Corinth is what I am teaching in all the Churches of Christ.”

48.       “So if any man is contending against it, let him know that what I am teaching is thus says the Lord.” Did you get the message?

49.       [17]For this very cause I sent to you Timothy, who is my beloved and trustworthy child in the Lord, who will recall to your minds my methods of proceeding and course of conduct and way of life in Christ, such as I teach everywhere in each of the churches. [1 Corinthians 4:17]

50.       Now, to show you that there was no temple where they placed offering bag or where they were paying tithe; God stipulated in the Acts of the Apostles how they administered in their homes.

51.       God stipulated in Acts of the Apostles how they were administered in their homes. Peter knew where they were. All of them knew where they were.

52.       There was one in the house of Mary, the mother of John Mark. There was one in the house of Rhoda.

And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.[13]And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda.[Acts 12:12 – 13 KJV]

53.       Every house where believers were was regarded as a church, and they were in the minority.

54.       Watch! Because of persecution and poverty, and because they had no money, and most of them were very lean[people with lean occupation], there was no record that they levied themselves to build a tabernacle anywhere.

55.       Did you see where they levied themselves? Did you see where they said, "Bring money. We want to build a cathedral? We want to build this and that." It does not exist.

56.       They never put any structure anywhere. Rather, Jesus said, "If they pursue you from this city, go to another city. They pursue you there, go to another city. I bet you, you will never run round the whole world and the end of everything shall come."

57.       [23]When they persecute you in one town [that is, pursue you in a manner that would injure you and cause you to suffer because of your belief], flee to another town; for truly I tell you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes. [Matthew 10:23 KJV]

58.       He never said, "Station yourselves there." No nono!

59.       We are pilgrims. We are strangers. To buttress the facts, the Apostles regulated the worship. One teaching, and they were sending people out one by one to go and visit them as families.

60.       Every first day of the week, the discussion is, "Every family should set aside a proportion of their income, according as the Lord has prospered you, according as you have purposed in your heart. When you want to give, give cheerfully. Do not give grudgingly for God loves a cheerful giver." Is it not true?

61.       He said, "Set out a proportion of your income every first day of the week so that when the people who will collect it will come, you do not need to be running helter skelter."

62.       [2]On the first [day] of each week, let each one of you [personally] put aside something and save it up as he has prospered [in proportion to what he is given], so that no collections will need to be taken after I come. [3]And when I arrive, I will send on those whom you approve and authorize with credentials to carry your gift [of charity] to Jerusalem. [1 Corinthians 16:2 – 3 AMP]

63.       In other words, offerings were collected from house to house where Brethren were worshipping in their homes, saying, "Salute the church in the house of Stephanas. Salute the church in the house of Rhoda. Salute the church in the house of this." Oh no! Look at how it was administered.

64.       [15]I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,) [16]that ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboreth. [17]I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied. [1 Corinthians 16:15 – 17 KJV]

65.       [5]Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my well beloved Epenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ.

 

We are waiting for time. Everything has time. Without time, nothing can happen. When God sets a time He wants to do something, that time is the time. The people that are watchful; children of God place their eyes on the prophecy. They place their eyes on the signs and the time that is attached to that prophecy. It is very very essential.

THE TIME HAS COME FOR ME TO STOP FIGHTING AND REST

 

2 Timothy 4 verse 6 - 15, Living Bible. I say this because I won’t be around to help you very much longer. My time has almost run out. Very soon now I will be on my way to heaven. Hallelujah!

2.         Every man of God knows when His time is running out, like My own is running out very speedily. I have alerted the whole Bride, “My time is running out. I have come to the end of all things.”

3.           It is true that My Ministry is eternal. Yes! That eternity begins one day. I say, eternity begins one day, and that is the day you are clothed with immortality. Am I making sense? My time is running out.

4.           My time has almost run out. Very soon now I will be on my way to heaven. I have fought long and hard for my Lord,...

5.           I have fought long and hard for My Lord to preserve this Truth and to preserve it from perishing. Only those hypocrites will deny My labour. You can never deny My labour among the Saints all these years, for I withheld nothing.

6.           I never withheld My life. I never withheld My money. I never withheld My time. I never withheld My intellect.

7.           I surrendered My entire family for God, and forgot everything about the welfare of my family to make sure that the Brethren will live.

8.           And I know that there are some good Brethren who can never forget My labour of love among them.

9.           And the Almighty God can never forget My honest labour of love among the Brethren, for no man of God has ever laid down His life for the Brethren more than THE SON OF MAN.

10.       I have fought long and hard for my Lord, and through it all I have kept true to him. And now the time has come for me to stop fighting and rest.Amen.

11.       There is always a time for a man of God to stop wandering about. He will now rest. Who will help Him during the rest period? Those that are very grateful to the Ministry. Those He has already salvaged.

12.       That is the time to nurture Him and that is the time He will order people out to go one by one, two by two, and know how the Brethren are faring.

13.       Every first day of the week, they will go and collect their generous offerings and bring them down. From there, He will be serving the needs of the Brethren everywhere.

14.       I have fought long and hard for my Lord, and through it all I have kept true to him. And now the time has come for me to stop fighting and rest. IN HEAVEN A CROWN IS WAITING FOR ME, which the Lord, the righteous Judge…

15.       In heaven, a crown is waiting for me, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, the Lord God Almighty has already reserved for Me and reserved for you also.

16.       FOR, ON THAT DAY, YOU WILL KNOW THAT I AM HE. AND THOSE THAT HAVE BELIEVED IN HIM WILL KNOW THEY NEVER BELIEVED IN VAIN.

17.       In heaven a crown is waiting for me, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on that great day of his return.

18.       And not just to me but to all those whose lives show that they are eagerly looking forward to his coming back again. Hallelujah!

19.       Whose lives, whose character show that they are eagerly looking for his coming back again.

20.       Please come as soon as you can, for Demas has left me.Demas has left me. He has gone into the world. HE LOVED THE GOOD THINGS OF THIS LIFE.

21.       You see, he has disguised himself, he has caused a feeling of shame. What will he be telling the people he is going to mingle with?

22.       Will he tell them that the promises of God have failed? Will he tell them that God has disappointed him? How long will he enjoy the things of this world? How long will they last for him?

23.       Please come as soon as you can, for Demas has left me. He loved the good things of this life and went to Thessalonica. Look at where he went to. Thessalonica.

24.       Crescens has gone to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia. Only Luke is with me. Bring Mark with you when you come, for I need him. He was addressing Timothy.

25.       (Tychicus is gone too, as I sent him to Ephesus.) When you come, be sure to bring the coat I left at Troas with Brother Carpus, and also the books, but especially the parchments.

26.       Alexander the coppersmith has done me much harm. He did not forget the man who did him much harm, who resisted his words, "Alexander the coppersmith has done me much harm by opposing my words."

27.       A woman can oppose My word. A man can oppose. And the Lord must surely punish them as He punished Alexander the coppersmith.

28.       Alexander the coppersmith has done me much harm. The Lord will punish him,What did he do? What was the offense?

29.       Alexander the coppersmith has done me much harm. The Lord will punish him, but be careful of him, for he fought against everything we said.

30.       Be careful of him for he fought against our Message. Everything we preached, he countered all. IF YOU ARE FOND OF COUNTERING THE WORDS OF THE SON OF MAN, BE SURE THE LORD WILL PUNISH YOU. Am I making sense?

31.       So, now I am in My home, enroute Paradise. It is from My home to Paradise with those that are found in Me, believing Me and standing behind Me. Not hypocrites! I say, not hypocrites. Am I making sense?

32.       Can you see? When we go to Corinthians, you will notice it. I said how I wish I had prepared it as teaching. Nevertheless, I am coming back to back all I am saying by evangelical through Scriptures.Of course, you know they are all Scriptural. Yes!

33.       Do not disguise yourself if you want to protect your ministry, protect your soul, protect your eternal salvation by living right and upholding your Faith amidst opposition. Advertise your Faith the same way evil men advertise their wickedness. Did you get the Message?

34.       Watch all the people on the streets who are in the hands of the devil. Are they ashamed of what they are doing? They talk wildly and they behave wildly. They even want everybody to be on their side. But when you mention Christ, they are offended.

35.       You that are holding the Name of Christ, why can you not depart from iniquity? Why can people not see the difference between you and the people out there?

36.       It is because you are hiding your identity. You are ashamed of confessing Christ. You are ashamed of telling people that you are a seed of God, a daughter of Christ, and that you are the son of God.

37.       For that reason, God will be ashamed of confessing your name. He will be even ashamed of opening the gate for you, for you are a disgrace to the Name of the Most High God. A disgrace to the people of the Kingdom of Heaven. You are not a worthy ambassador. Am I making sense?

38.       We are Ambassadors. Christ's representatives. Our duty is to reconcile people unto God. But watch what people are doing. They are allowing the world to reconcile them with the devil.

39.       When you hide your identity, Satan will reconcile you to himself. He will use his agents to bring you back to that which you hated, that which you preached against and that which you stood against. His agents who are around you, and who know you will now capture you.

40.       For the Bible said, “Immediately they left God,” the Bible said, “go and capture them for they have lost their security. Their God has forsaken them.”

41.       [10]For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together, [11]saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him. [Psalms 71:10 – 11 KJV]

42.       The devil knows when God has forsaken a man of God. Do you believe that? Even people living round about you know that you are counterfeit, and that God has forsaken you.

43.       If you are serious with what you are professing, they know. If you are not serious, they know. If you are making just a fair show of it, they know. Even among us, we know who is who. True or false? We know who is who.

44.       THAT IS WHY WE ARE NOW HAVING SPIRITUAL WORSHIP. THE TIME FOR CARNAL FELLOWSHIP IS OVER. NOW, IT IS PURELY SPIRITUAL.

45.       People that are spiritual will go to one side. People that are social and worldly like Demas, one side.

46.       Can you see what he was doing? He sat down and He is now resting from the labour. He started listing the young men. Hear their names one after the other. When you get back, read them. They are young men like you.

47.       He detailed some to Ephesus. This one toDalmatia. This one in Philadelphia, and this one in this place. When they got there, they were going from house to house, encouraging the Brethren.

48.       While coming back on the first day of the week, they will collect their goodwill offerings, carry them back to the Apostle who is now resting.

49.       He is not tired. He is not retired. He is now an administrator, staying in that rented apartment administering the affairs of the churches that are in the homes.

50.       He wrote letters. Letters now started circulating and directing on how worship should be done every day and how prayers should be done.

51.       If there be anyone that has a need, by circular, he will draw the attention of everybody and tell them what is needed to save the situation. Brethren will rally round together immediately.

52.       From time to time, they were calling upon him to read the Scriptures. The Bible said that they were coming to him in that rented apartment and he was happy hosting them, very happy hosting them.

53.       Although he was a bachelor, but there were too many sisters, spinsters he worked with. He recommended them to the churches, sisters like Phoebe, Syntyche and the rest of them.

54.       [1]Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved. [2]I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord[3]And I entreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellow laborers, whose names are in the book of life. [Philippians 4:1 – 3 KJV]

55.       He said, "They were his co-labourers in the vine yard, they helped him in love." Amen.

I am establishing the Family where you are all adopted, and you are the people that are organizing this thanksgiving service, so, do not say, “Brother Odoemena is having thanksgiving service.” Say, “Our Family had a nice thanksgiving service.” If they want to know your Family, tell them, “It is the Family of Odoemena.” If the Bride comes here with a new Name Odoemena, it is not a crime. “Lo I make all things new.” Thus, anybody moving at the old style may miss it. That is the promise of the hour. ...

TEMPLE WORSHIP IS IDOLATORY [2]

 

SO, WHAT AM I SAYING? SYNAGOGUE WORSHIP IS DEVIL'S WORSHIP. DID YOU GET THE MESSAGE?

2.         That was why, immediately Peter recanted the Faith, and James recanted the Faith, they went back to the temple. They went back to the temple of the Jews every Sabbath day again.

3.           Every Sabbath day again and started killing Tuttle dove, animal sacrifice, burning of incense, they found fault with St Paul.

4.           When St Paul came to know how they were faring, they caused St Paul to compromise, St Paul now started rekindling the teaching of circumcision.

5.           Timothy who was a minister was circumcised. They felt that the presence of Timothy, being a Gentile, was a defilement to the temple. Titus, the same thing and many of them.

6.           Peter and James now stirred up riot against Paul and caused Paul to be beaten near unto death, that he was transgressing and teaching the Gentiles to transgress the laws of Moses.

7.           [17]and all the believers at Jerusalem welcomed us cordially.[18]The second day Paul took us with him to meet with James and the elders of the Jerusalem church.[19]After greetings were exchanged, Paul recounted the many things God had accomplished among the Gentiles through his work.[20]They praised God but then said, “You know, dear brother, how many thousands of Jews have also believed, and they are all very insistent that Jewish believers must continue to follow the Jewish traditions and customs.[21]Our Jewish Christians here at Jerusalem have been told that you are against the laws of Moses, against our Jewish customs, and that you forbid the circumcision of their children.[22]Now what can be done? For they will certainly hear that you have come.[23]“We suggest this: We have four men here who are preparing to shave their heads and take some vows.[24]Go with them to the Temple and have your head shaved too—and pay for theirs to be shaved.
“Then everyone will know that you approve of this custom for the Hebrew Christians and that you yourself obey the Jewish laws and are in line with our thinking in these matters.[25]“As for the Gentile Christians, we aren’t asking them to follow these Jewish customs at all—except for the ones we wrote to them about: not to eat food offered to idols, not to eat unbled meat from strangled animals, and not to commit fornication.”[26]
(26-27So Paul agreed to their request and the next day went with the men to the Temple for the ceremony, thus publicizing his vow to offer a sacrifice seven days later with the others.
The seven days were almost ended when some Jews from Turkey saw him in the Temple and roused a mob against him. They grabbed him,[28]yelling, “Men of Israel! Help! Help! This is the man who preaches against our people and tells everybody to disobey the Jewish laws. He even talks against the Temple and defiles it by bringing Gentiles in!”[29](For down in the city earlier that day, they had seen him with Trophimus, a Gentile from Ephesus in Turkey, and assumed that Paul had taken him into the Temple.)[30]The whole population of the city was electrified by these accusations and a great riot followed. Paul was dragged out of the Temple, and immediately the gates were closed behind him.[31]As they were killing him, word reached the commander of the Roman garrison that all Jerusalem was in an uproar.
 [Acts 21:17 – 31 LB]

8.           Did you see what happened there? God forsook Peter, and from that day, instead of continuing in the evangelism, he [Peter] led them back to the water to fish.

9.           While they were there, Peter was naked, he saw the Lord coming, he dived into the sea, but the Lord had already seen him, He said;

10.       "Peter come out! Come out! The sea can never hide you. I saw you walking naked among the heathens, you saw Me, you dived.

11.       Look at you. I told you to take care of the flock and look at where you brought them to."

12.       [7]Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher’s coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. ..... [17]He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jona, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.[John 21:7, 17 KJV]

13.       He knew Peter would deny Him, for He told him ahead of time. To the rest of them He said, "Peter, devil wanted to gain advantage over you. I prayed for you that your Faith fail not but Peter anytime you are converted, strengthen your brethren, help your brethren to know the truth."

14.       [31]And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: [32]but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren[33]And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death. [34]And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me. [Luke 22:31 – 34 KJV]

15.       You see why, instead of Peter to continue with the work, he started in Cornelius' house, he backslid and Paul took over. God now brought Paul. Paul now took over and became a Saviour to the Gentiles, and did that which Peter refused to do.

16.       Peter went back to Jerusalem and hardened the hearts of the Jews against the Ministry of Christ which is still very hard until THE SON OF MAN has appeared.

17.       It is now, when you go to the Website report of last week which ended yesterday, you see Israel number two, with more than five thousand respondents. And, Nigeria with about three thousand respondents. Is it not true?

18.       I mean, I want you to begin to see that it is THE SON OF MAN now that has opened their eyes by revealing the Cloud, by revealing the Original Body, by revealing everything and all the attributes, including the Godhead.

19.       So they are without excuse. You watch UAE, United Arab Emirates, you watch Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and you watch all the countries in the world.

20.       Yesterday I received a message which is still in my phone. I do not know who posted that message again. He said it is israelinews.com

21.       Yesterday Ukraine, one hundred and thirty [130] Ukrainian Jews were received in Israel. Final return. One hundred and thirty [130] Ukrainian Jews returned to Israel and received a rousing welcome in Israel yesterday.

22.       I do not know who posted to Me, he said, “Daddy, Your Word has come to pass. We are settling down gradually.”

23.       We are settling down gradually. Yes! Any moment from now it will be your turn. Yes! Because I have shown them the way. Gradually, all of us are meeting together.

24.       When you go to the website, you will see that from time to time, Ukraine is number one. Ukraine! USA, Russia, Kenya! Kenya, that is Nairobi. They worship God as a man. The whole of East Africa!

25.       Have you seen it? [The message from israelinews.com] You can read it.

26.       PROPHECY FULFILLED: Ukrainian Jews return in Israel after thousands of years in exile. One-thirty of them left Ukraine. In Hebrew, it is called Aliyah: The Jewish people returning to the promised land. Amen!

27.       This is the time of our final return. And you are not returning to them. Yes!This is because you are Ephraimites. You cannot return to them for no portion was given to you. Did you get the Message?

28.       BUT YOU ARE THE ONE THAT WILL BRING EVERYBODY AND RECONCILE ALL THEM IN THE AIR, FOR I AM THE CENTER. I AM THE CENTER!

29.       So what am I saying? You are not deceived. You are following the right track for the Elohim is with us. I have declared this house the house of Noah.

30.       This is the house of Noah in this generation. The house of Abraham. The house of Lot. The Saviour's house. This is God's Mount Zion.

31.       Who will dwell with Me in Mount Zion? Those that have purified their hearts of evil conscience. Those that are meek, humble, lowly and transparent. Those that are straightforward. Those whose hearts are pure.

32.       These are the people that are qualified to dwell with Me in mount Zion. So, I am going to My Father. Who will go with Me?

33.       SONG[Come and go with Me to My Father's house. To My Father's house, to My Father's house. Come and go with Me to My Father's house, where there is joy, joy; Where there is peace, peace.]

34.       Just like the Message I sent out. I told the Elders in My house yesterday that never have I given out such instruction, documented in My hand, signed and sealed. A strict warning.

35.       And I mean every Word I wrote down in My biro, for what prompted it is already in between the lines of the Messages, because a sinner can become a Saint if he can take a right decision.

36.       And you take your decision before you open it. I went further to warn the Elders and also warn their families. Do not even go there!

37.       There was something I omitted. Do not open it without reading THE SON OF MAN's commission, for His scriptural commission will help you to open the Messages. Two Messages at a time, with strict warning and I mean it.

38.       Even in this house, if you do not obey the warning, you are in for trouble. If you do not obey the warning, you are in for trouble. God is no respecter of persons.

39.       With these few words of exhortation, I say welcome to this first day's worship in this new week and today being 14th June. I said 14th June.

WHEN LOVE PROJECTS.

 

T

oday is going to be glorious as we journey along, for God answered My prayers. My wife intervened.

2.           Apostle Kelechi called Me last night with tears, that Deacon Chibuko alerted him that danger was lurking, and that Bro Amankem's wife was passing on.

3.           I opened My phone, I saw her text message. I gave it to My wife, and she wept. She has been pleading because she knew I was drawing a line against Amankem, not against the wife, because Amankem deceived that Sister.

4.           Amankem does not love that Sister. Amankem loves her money, her industry as Amankem has been loving all along, deceiving Sisters.

5.           He now impregnated this one by deceit, lured her to the corner because of her money and is tormenting her day and night. That Sister is under torment for Amankem is the most wicked Brother among us.

6.           But My love and mercy projected before I went to bed. I considered left and right. I looked up towards the sky. I said, “Okay, I am going there.” I went and came back.

7.           I roused My wife that in the bed, and I said if not divine intervention, I would not have done what I did now. I have come back from Amankem's house. I have seen the leg. And I have touched it.

8.           And if not what I have done now, tomorrow would have been a weeping day. Nevertheless, let me watch Amankem. I went to bed.

9.           This morning I saw too many missed calls. Bro Chibuko said he is not going to talk, that he is coming down. He said, “Daddy, what I saw last night is indescribable.”

10.       He said that the Sister passed on, but what he witnessed this morning is unbelievable.

11.       I asked, “Is it better or worse?” He said, “Daddy, what is better? It is best! It is healed. It is unbelievable! And no drug was administered.”

12.       I said, “Okay. No problem. Until you come. But call My wife. She will tell you what happened last night, for they heard the testimony of Brother Austin in Lagos which is causing waves.”

13.       His most senior sister called Me from Afikpo, thanking Me. The most senior brother called Me from Asaba. He said he is coming to My house with the entire brethren, just to say, “Thank you.”

14.       His cousin called Me from Lagos, thanking. His father-in-law called Me from Olokoro in Umuahia, Abia State, thanking and appreciating God. Everywhere is ringing bell that the dead came back to life.

15.       They said that the military doctors were astonished and said that they would like to know who this Man is. They said that the nurses were pleading that they should be introduced to this Man.

16.       They said that they have been hearing with the hearing of their ears, but never have they come across a Man whose brain was ruptured. He lost connection. He could not talk. He could not do anything. He was dumb.

17.       And then was taken to three specialist hospitals, but no accommodation, and no bed. He was dropped outside. The two who were brought with him died before daybreak. The two died, but he remained alive.

18.       I told My wife, “Brother Austin will live. If he would not live, I would not have done what I did.”

19.       Immediately I got the alert through the wife about what was happening, I conditioned her mind.

20.       In less than one hour thirty minutes, I sent a hundred and fifty thousand naira. I then began to call Lagos Brethren. I took care of the family. Let the Pastor take the children. They were taken good care of, but let the wife be there [in the hospital]. 

21.       Till evening hours, I stabilized him, and then gave them the instruction, take him to this hospital. He will live! And today, he is alive. Tomorrow, he is resuming work.

22.       Those who thought Bro Amankem’s wife would die will see the Sister on the Street, because I told My wife what happened to the leg.

23.       Apostle Kelechi knows the truth. We are not working on Amankem's wickedness. Yes!

24.       So God is doing in every family. There was one I spoke with yesterday and I told her plain truth, “That which I placed there for almost eighteen years ago, I must bring it down. And when I bring it down, I will place it where all eyes will see it because it has been abused.”

25.       ONCE A PRIVILEGE IS ABUSED, IT MUST BE WITHDRAWN. HAVE I NOT BEEN TELLING YOU THAT HERE? NOBODY ENJOYS ANYTHING AS A RIGHT IN THE HAND OF GOD. IT IS A PRIVILEGE.

26.       YOU CANNOT FORCE GOD TO HELP YOU. YOU CANNOT FORCE GOD TO ANSWER YOUR PRAYERS. YOU CAN NEVER FORCE GOD TO SAVE YOU.

27.       GOD WILL SAVE YOU BECAUSE HE WANTS TO SAVE YOU. AND THE REASONS ARE BEST KNOWN TO HIM AS TO WHY HE WILL COME TO YOUR RESCUE. WHAT YOU HAVE AS YOUR REASON MAY DIFFER FROM HIS REASON FOR COMING INTO YOUR SITUATION. AMEN!

28.       With these few Words of exhortation, I usher you into the Message of today proper. But before then, it is expedient that we finish the Message we started, which we have not yet concluded.

29.       That is BEWARE OF SNAKE'S BITE AS WE WORSHIP GOD IN OUR HOMES. We stopped at chapter 4. Rush through it. Then, we go over to the Message for today.

30.       The Message for today, we have heard it, but many have not heard. We heard it in audio, live! And it is very much heart-warming and reviving. And that is the Message we are going to consider in our own family.

31.       TEMPTATIONS (A TRIAL OF YOUR FAITH). TEMPTATIONS (A TRIAL OF YOUR FAITH). That is immediately after we finish BEWARE OF SNAKE'S BITE AS WE WORSHIP GOD AT HOME. You can now take off. Bye!
