MIXED MULTITUDE PART 2

SON OF MAN
Preached on 5TH MARCH, 1993 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE SUPREME INTELLIGENCE” “Truth has no substitute”

1

BE CAREFUL

On Wednesday, the Lord spoke to us concerning Mixed-Multitude. On Tuesday, the Lord introduced that topic, the Mixed-Multitude. I want to put you in remembrance. The Lord challenged the ministers in this Church to flush out unbelief and doubt in this Church, giving them

twenty eight (28) days.

2.         The Lord promised to be with them; and the Lord did the flushing out of the unbelief and doubt. It pleased the Lord to excommunicate a lot of people in the Church. And we are certain of them. We witnessed it happen in this Church.

3.         When no man announced it from the pulpit, the people that were excommunicated came, testifying that the Church excommunicated them.

4.         Who is the Church? When Saul was persecuting the Church, what did he hear, “Saul Saul, why persecutest thou me?”

5.         He answered “Who art thou my Lord?”

6.         “I am Jesus Christ, whom thou persecutest”.

7.         Then, who is the Church, who excommunicated them? I am speaking in types. The Lord continued talking with me.

8.         He said, “I am not yet through with my Church. Continue with the same topic, “Mixed Multitude”, until I finish with you on that topic. No matter how you are being tempted, don’t try to find My Will concerning My second message, ‘From Jerusalem to Jericho.’ Don’t ask of My Will and don’t pry into it. Leave it as it is, until I finish with you on this topic, ‘Mixed Multitude.’ Keep on obeying me, remain faithful.”

9.         There was a vision: “I have washed off my hands by declaring the whole counsels.”

10.      And today, the Lord came down, bringing something to build up the faith of everybody in this Church now. That is what the Lord is going to do now, so that you know that it is God.

11.      On Wednesday, we saw all these mixed multitudes that were following the people of Israel, when they were journeying from Egypt, back to Canaan. The Bible said, in number (population) they were 600,000 (six hundred thousand), men and women and the small children.

12.      The true people of Israel that were coming out, God numbered them like He numbered the hairs on our heads, and He recorded in the Holy Bible, through the power of the Holy Ghost for us to know the exact number.

13.      He didn’t say “about.” He didn’t say “up to.” He said 600,000 (six hundred thousand) in number.

14.      But while they were journeying home, people came from everywhere and joined them. The number of the people increased. The Prophet gave us the number: 2,000,000 (two million). Where did the rest of the people come from?

15.      What is more, they are now greater in number than the original people. And the Lord likened them to the weed and the tares. When you go to your farm, you plant your corn, after seven days, go there. The grass that would come up would be greater in number than the corn. And when you were planting your corn, you were giving room, planting it, giving room for the Holy Ghost to move around your corn, because water will move around the corn to give it life. The sunshine will come to give it air. You hear it now.

16.      But this grass is everywhere, competing with the corn for water, for air, for sunshine; competing with the water for the Promised Land. “We are going home. We are going home,” all of them joined. But they didn’t know that a lot of people that came were not people of Israel.

17.      Some were the Jebusites, the Amalekites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Peruzites, the Canaanites, the Moabites, all “ITES.” Some were even sons of Abraham, born in the flesh. They multiplied and became greater in number: 7 versus 1.

18.      We saw Isaac, the promised child, and we saw Ishmael, son in the flesh. We saw other six sons from the third wife of Abraham; Genesis 25, making seven sons; the sons of Abraham, outside the will of God and they were claiming Abraham to be their father, Isaac claiming Abraham to be his father.

19.      The two women were claiming Abraham to be their husband. Sarah was claiming Abraham to be her husband. You see the problem now? And the Lord said, “In Isaac shall I pick my seed.” And Isaac begat Jacob, and Jacob was called Israel.

20.      Where were the rest of the people now? Where did they go? They reproduced.

21.      When they came to John the Baptist to be baptized, they said, “we are of Abraham, baptize us!”

22.      He said, “Don’t say you are of Abraham, you vipers, cunning snakes, very quiet in appearance, very humble in appearance, very harmless in appearance, but deadly poison.”

23.      John recognized them immediately. He remembered what happened to Abraham. He remembered Abel, his brother. He remembered Seth that started worshipping after Abel died.

24.      Oh, I am going to talk on the “Missing Book”. It makes me fine. When I was reading the book in the morning, I said glory be to God. These people were competing. John looked at them straight in the face. Bear fruit worth repentance. These people were there. They did not change until Christ met them.

25.      They said, “We have come”.

26.      He asked them, “Who are you?” They replied, “We are of Abraham, we are not born of fornication. After all, we know you very well. We know your father, Joseph, we know your mother, Mary. Oh, stop telling us lies. You are a bastard!

27.      “Before your father married your mother, aaaah that woman don get im boyfriend wey pregnant am oh. Im come tell us say na Holy Ghost oh! Shut up, we get our Abraham as our father, na him marry our mama oh. Our people see them when they marry them. They witnessed their wedding. They witnessed the marriage ceremony. You are born of fornication. We are not bastards.

28.      And they picked stones. “Look at viper. That silent snake don rise up now. They don become bold. Him teeth don comot well well oh! They come carry stone, carry machete.”

29.      They shouted, “We must kill him. Whether you like it or not, we must kill you!”

30.      He said, “My friend. Do you not remember your father Abraham again, who worshipped me with fear and trembling? He worked out his salvation. Why do you want to kill me? If he is alive, do you think if he is alive, he will behave like this? He saw my day and rejoiced! What is wrong with you?

31.      “Upon all the signs and wonders I performed before you, of all the miracles, which one do you accuse me of? If you don’t believe I came from Him, what of the miracles which you have seen me perform in His Name? What is wrong with you? You picked stones to kill me because you are of your father, the devil. The original snake, very quiet, very, humble, always eager to help the brethren, very eager to help the brethren.”

32.      You will hear it from the word. A very big snake. If they were of Abraham, they would have respected the Christ of their day. They would have respected the Word. You can see mixed multitude.

33.      As they were still going home to Canaan, along the way, they formed their own group: sisters group, brothers group. Mary league, legion of Mary, brotherhood group, Catholic and Deeper Life, they were all there, with all their ideas.

34.      Watch one thing with them. They started murmuring, they started complaining. Because they were in the majority, the entire men of Israel followed them, thinking that they were one. Not knowing that they came from other nations and joined them. See where they came from. They did not forget their God.

35.      When the pastor was away, the keeper of the house, they called the caretaker: “Aaron, come here. Enough is enough! This  your brother; we don’t know what must have become of him. Since forty days, nobody has seen him. Maybe he don die since. We told you he is a sinner. Anointing has left him. Maybe lion devoured him. Aaron, make us a god! We will worship that one. That is the god that brought us out from Egypt.”

36.      Because they were idolaters by nature, they didn’t forget it. They remembered it immediately. “Ooh, in Egypt, ooh, Pharaoh made a very good god for us. We had our dogs. Ooh, we had your Egyptian mummies here and there. No, no, no, this Moses must be a liar!

37.      “Aaron, Aaron, make one for us. Collect gold from our women. We have plenty gold, melt it. Mold one for us. We will worship, it.”

38.      Look at Aaron, A compromiser! Because he was afraid of death, he compromised with them. Let me warn you, be careful about eloquent preachers!

39.      Aaron was a very good orator. When he places the words fine, people will dance and dance. You can hardly believe that God is not in that word. He compromised. He had no backbone. He didn’t meet God in the wilderness. Instantly he denied God. Because he had no backbone, he couldn’t rebuke the people. “Why are you saying this?” He said “Well, you see, you see…”

40.      And in his mind, he had something: “Anyway, as my brother has died now, let me lead this people. I am now their god.

41.      He said, “Ooh, glory, I will make one for you.” Associate pastor. It is time for you to overthrow government: “I will make one for you now. Look at it. I have made one very well. Oya, bring it. One day, we will celebrate around it oh.”

42.      On that day, he came out, blind preacher! He led the dancing oh! He was in the front. Read your Bible. The Bible said he led them to that dancing procession both men and women, Aaron leading them.

43.      “Our god oh. Glory! Who lead us out of Egypt!” Foolish man! No backbone! No wonder he died in the mountain. The Lord did not spare him. If God did not spare Aaron, the same way, He can never spare any pastor, any minister that does not have the courage enough to rebuke people of sin or idolatry, or hypocrisy, or compromise.

44.      The same way, God will never spare any minister who because of majority, you err in doctrine, in life, in conduct.

45.       It is not calling down Holy Ghost. God said, “I have sent my Messenger before you; mind how you follow Him for He will never pardon your transgressions. Any single mistake, you will pay with your life instantly!”

46.      The Holy Ghost told us that here, the same God, the same Messenger, is here this moment. Hear me very well, “If you sin against God, you are forgiven, you sin against Jesus Christ, you are forgiven. When the Holy Ghost shall come, any of you that shall attribute any of His deeds to the devil, any of you that will speak one blasphemy against the Holy Ghost, you can never be forgiven in this world nor in the world to come.” Thus says the Lord!

47.      Be careful how you talk. The Holy Ghost told you, “If you hear anything you don’t know, no matter whoever is telling you, maybe you are confused about what is happening, keep your mouth sealed. Keep on watching, keep on praying. Don’t talk, lest you become guilty.”

48.      I am telling you the truth. That’s what the Lord was telling us on Wednesday. Now He is putting us in remembrance concerning those things, lest we perish.

49.       I am blessed here. How many people are blessed there? Say amen. Hallelujah. It makes me fine! Keep on praying for me over there. Whatever you desire, God is going to grant it to you. That is, whatever you desire in your heart, only a short of prayer, you will have it, just for the asking, God is going to grant it. I am telling you the truth.

50.       I am watching something there. Watch what is happening there. Watch. And the Lord took a decision, in the book of Numbers 14, if you read from verses 20-31, the Lord took an oath.  

51.      Numbers 14:20-31, “And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word: But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.

52.      Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;

53.      Surely they shall not see the land which I swore unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it: But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

54.       (Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley.) Tomorrow turn you, and get you into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea. And the LORD spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron saying,

55.      How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.

56.      Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: Your carcasses shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me,

57.      Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I swore to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

58.      But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised.” KJV.

59.      The Lord took an oath, “As long as I live, all of them that have murmured against me, that put me to test in the wilderness, all that are twenty years of age and above, all that have attained twenty years of age and above, they will never see my Promised Land. They will never enter.”

60.      The people that will enter will be little children, those people they likened to grasshopper. In the end-time message today, who are you? Who knows Nkpor Church? Who knows their pastor? Who knows their evangelist? They are nothing but grasshoppers in the sight of all the men that started the ministry.

61.      Nobody knows us as preachers, nobody knows us as ministers, and nobody knows us as worshippers. Who are you? In their sight, you are a grasshopper. Yet, you are told to possess that land, the Lord has announced it, there is no going back.

62.      And because He has said it, and you know you are marching to Canaan, they have become jealous of you. They are all out to discourage you. I am telling you the truth, putting stumbling blocks on your way.

63.      What is more, the Lord has come down to pave a way for His people. Who can stand? That’s why He came. I am telling you the truth.  

64.       We are like grasshoppers. Let me tell you. Who can believe what is happening here? Who will believe our report? To whom is the arms of the Lord revealed? Amen.

CHRIST IS YOUR VICTORY

I am glad. Whether they believe it or not, God is in this Church. Jehovah Shammah, He is here, in our midst! Come before Him with fear and trembling. Be reverent! Keep on praying for me there.

2.         But there was a Godly man. The Lord found favour in his sight. When the majority came with false report; Church hear me now. The whole local assemblies may gather against you, bringing false reports. You may be in the minority. Don’t be discouraged. One with God is majority. Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. Rejoice for we have overcome the world.

3.         Christ conquered the world, He conquered denominations and has given us the victory. That’s why we are rejoicing. No matter where they are coming from, there must be Caleb and Joshua.

4.         Watch, the rest came with false report. Before they brought that false report, the Bible said they agreed among themselves to give a false report. They were certain of what they witnessed in Canaan. They came back with the fruits. They knew it was a land flowing with milk and honey—a very good land.

5.         Before then, they had already decided in the wilderness that they were not going anymore. When they reached Kadesh-Barnea, they said they were not going anymore. Read your Bible.

6.         Before the Lord took a decision, they had already decided not to go again. How many people had decided not to go again? It is true that the road had become very rough, Caleb and Joshua are able. Why are they able? Because the Lord is able, the Lord is able to see you through.

7.         He that started the good work in you will continue to lead you to do the work in you, until the day of Christ. He is able.

8.         Philippians 1:6. “Being confident of this very thing, that he which has begun a good work in you will perform it till the day of Jesus Christ.”

9.         God bless you. Yes! He who had begun a very good work in you will continue it until the day of Christ. He that has begun it in you, you never started any work in your life. Church hear it now. Somebody started a good work in you. He is able to perfect the work.   

10.      Don’t be discouraged. There must be Joshua and Caleb in this day. There must be Daniel in the land of captivity. There must be Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego.

11.      When all the Prophets compromised, all the Levites compromised, the whole priests, everybody compromised and began to worship idol, in a strange land; they forgot their God for they were as guilty as Aaron.

12.      If any other person worshipped God, God would have caused his name to be written in the Bible; because he picked four people from four different provinces as example, because we are living in the day when the end shall come.

13.      Somebody may be asking “What is Brother saying tonight again?” Brother is saying nothing but Holy Ghost is saying something.

14.      Be in the spirit. If you are not in the spirit, don’t worry, you will see something.

15.      While I was going into the Bible I discovered a man that was in the Church and another spirit was operating in him. Read your Bible very well. Read the book of Numbers 13:30. You will see what happened there. If you read it from there you will notice something.

16.      The Bible said that Caleb and Joshua, that they were in another spirit. Check your Bible. They were not in the spirit of the congregation because the congregation was in the spirit of error. Joshua and Caleb were in the spirit of God and they were in the minority.

17.      The Lord took us back to the time of Gideon, when many thousands were called out for a battle, the Lord said, “How many of you married newly? How many married new wives? How many are afraid? How many want to go to their business? Now you can go home. No problem.” Thirty thousand left. The Bible said that they were remaining ten thousand.

18.      The Lord said, “     It is too big. I am still purging them because they are still mixed.” The Amalekites were there, the Hittites were there, the Jebusites were there. These were saboteurs.

19.      You will see saboteurs in the Bible today; that are fond of taking the secrets of the local assembly. Every local assembly has a secret. Nobody will understand what I am saying. Your pastor will make you know all these things I am talking in types.

20.      We have secrets. The devil is prying to know our secrets; prying into our secrets. The moment he knows it, he will hit us!

21.      Why are you looking at me as if it is not the scripture? Have you not read your Bible?

22.      When Balak hired Balaam because of money, to curse the people of Israel, the Bible said, “Balaam looked at them; there was nowhere he could cash in on their faults and curse them.”

23.      Balak said, “Come let me show you their backside to see whether there is anything, any weak point, any shortcoming.” This man moved. The Bible said the Lord covered their back with His mighty hand.

24.      They couldn’t see, they were covered in the blood of Christ. Satan will never see your sin; he will never see my sin. It is washed away once and for all. Though Satan may accuse you, he is the accuser the brethren.

25.      What did he do? He devised a system; “I will tell you something, I will teach you how to deal with them.” That was why it was his prophecy that stumbled the people of Israel. It was Balaam’s teaching: “I know their God. The God of Holiness, the God of Israel. He hates compromise. He hates mixed multitude, He hates fornication, and He hates adultery.”

26.      He went further, “Throw a party! Ask them to come together. We are one. After all we are from Lot, they are from Israel. Come together! Drink together! No matter where you are from- shalom, shalom, shalom.”

27.       “National convention for Christ. Nigeria for Christ”. Rubbish. The Bible said while they were doing it, the anger of the Lord was kindled against them. He killed them in thousands in one day and they repented of their evil. The Lord took an oath from that day till eternity.

28.      You see why Balaam is lost, that the sin of Balaam can never be forgiven till eternity. Hear it now. You that are fond of attending national convention, you that want to organize one. You that want to organize this and that, dancing competition—great compromise! Be very careful, lest you die before your time.

29.      The Lord is still going further. I am glad. When I look at what is hovering around, it makes me fine. Somebody may not see what I am seeing. I am telling you the truth. It makes me fine. He is right here in our midst.

30.      Brother Joe, God bless you. Brother Joe, I can see you from here. The Lord brought you ahead of time. Tarry with me here; tarry with God here. You will see the glory of God come down. The Lord has spoken concerning you, many, many times.

31.      In the morning, the Lord said you were coming; He has a portion of the scripture for you to fulfill tonight. Fresh! I said it is for you. You will hear it by way of remembrance. Then you will fall back, you will fall back and rethink.

32.      God is calling for people. You will know the type of men God wants now. Turn with me to the book of Nehemiah. This is not what the Lord prepared earlier. What He gave me earlier is here written and all of them, in the New Testament as a concluding message and the Lord said it is not enough. You keep on trailing on this path.

33.      On Sunday let them come and hear testimony from the New Testament, for the Lord to cap this message. This message must be capped. What you saw the other day was not he capping of the message. Mixed multitude must be capped!

34.      Hallelujah! Oh, I feel like going home. I feel like going home. Ooh! Glory, glory, glory. God is in the camp. Ooh the Lord repeated a vision when we were having our night vigil here, many months ago, mainly the ministers.

35.      Some brethren were given vision of basket of fruits, fresh fruits and people were picking. And then we couldn’t balance the message. We went home.

36.      Another day, a brother helped me a little to understand the meaning and God is continuing till this morning, a brother stood up and was writing what he was given, where he saw the same basket filled with fruits.

37.       I said, “God, do I eat from this basket?” He said “no.” I opened my eyes, I saw Amos 8:1-3.

38.      Thus hath the Lord God showed unto me. And behold a basket of summer fruit. And He said Amos what seesth thou? And I said a basket of summer fruits.

39.      Then said the Lord unto me, ‘The end is come upon my people of Israel, I will not again pass by them anymore, and the songs of the temple shall be howling in that day’, said the Lord God. ‘There shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence.”(KJV) Amen!

40.      How many heard the vision now? The Lord interpreted it. I said to the Lord, “What shall I tell your people tonight?” He said, “Tell them nothing except what I told you. Don’t attempt to interpret it for it is interpreted already. Any moment from now, this message is going to my people Israel.”

41.      That was all. Then I looked unto heaven and said if that is the case, any moment from now, rapture will take place. This message will go to the people of Israel.

42.      Who is doubting it? Why has God decided to come down, to repeat Pentecost, to bring back Pentecost? It is to perfect the Bride and then rapture the Bride home? Don’t you know that?

43.       Walk before Him with fear and trembling. And the voice told me, “Arise, thou that sleepeth, for the night is far spent.” I recorded it, and I was taken back again, in the same Amos 8:11-13. I noted it down.

44.      “Behold the days come, saith the Lord God that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but a famine of the words of the Lord.

45.      And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north, even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it. In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.” KJV.

46.      I asked the Lord, “Lord, what shall I tell your people concerning this word again?” A voice came back to me again and said, “These are the foolish virgins. They are the people in the End Time message. They did not give the Holy Ghost a chance to perfect them. And when Translation takes place, My Bride will be in glory.”

47.      This message will leave them. They will be going about in search of the voice of God. Christ has left them; Christ is now on the Judgment Seat, judging the Gentiles, because the wrath of God is now revealed from heaven. (At this point, there was supernatural manifestation of God and much jubilation in the Camp.)

48.      That is what we are expecting, Translation. I will be there, you will be there. Shout hallelujah, Amen. Be spiritual. That’s the Lord. He has come down.

49.      When I heard it, I started jumping. “God is God, God is God.” My wife was following, shouting, “Amen,” “Amen.” She did not know why, but she was saying amen, amen.

50.      She said, “Darling today I won’t fail. I must be there, I am going.” I said, “You will go. I am going from there; work out your own salvation. Mind how you are going, I am going from there.”

51.      I went further to say; “If the Lord continues in what He is doing here, prepare food very well. Carry food come o. We may sleep here. If the Lord continues in what He is doing now, there is going to be a healing service tonight.

52.      I am looking at Him. If I see that sign again, this message may stop here, healing service may take over. I am telling you the truth. I can see it. It is talking. Don’t worry, it is happening. The Lord is doing it, look at it.

53.      Prophecy…… Amen, Amen.

                                                             3

THE URIM THUMMIM IS IN THE BRIDE

Almighty God we thank you, I believe you are here. I reverence your Holy Name oh God. Thank you for what you have done. It makes me to believe you even the more, because Your Spirit has told me something even here.

2.         Lord I am grateful, I am grateful oh Lord. The Church may not know. Anoint somebody oh God to understand what has happened. Take glory oh Lord; In the Name of Christ our Lord, Amen.

3.         Brother Okechukwu Nwamkpa, anytime this service is over; take this brother kneeling down here to your study room or outside, talk to him, that he may not disturb the move of the Holy Ghost, amen.

4.         The Lord is doing cleansing. If you are here and you are anointed falsely, even in the denominations, the moment you come into this Church, the Holy Ghost will arrest it.

5.         It is going to fire that person outside, the Lord will flush that spirit out first and then He will start using the vessel. The Lord can never use that vessel when there is something there already.

6.         Hear me now, this is the voice of the Lord, this is the cleansing, this is the purging. This is the confirmation of the Mixed Multitude message, amen.

7.         HOW I WISH SOMEBODY CAN SEE WHAT IS FLOWING IN MY HANDS. HOW I WISH SOMEBODY CAN SEE WHAT IS FLOWING IN MY HANDS. HALLELUJAH.

8.         Who has faith enough here, who has faith enough here? Who is that person that has faith enough to believe that God is able to establish all that will come out of my mouth tonight? Who has faith to believe it?

9.         All knees bowed down, all heads bowed down. Look at these hands that are raised up to me. Most of them are higher than my own hands. You know that I am a short man like Zacchaeus.

10.      Lord, they have their desires which I may not know individually. Grant them unto them one by one, according to their faith in Thy Spoken Word in Christ’s Name, Amen.

11.       Hallelujah, go home rejoicing. On Sunday come back here. There must be testimonies. I am telling you the truth. God is in the camp. God is not shaking.

12.      Let me tell you, in the house of God, there are no only ornaments of gold and silver, there are also ornaments of clay, and of wood; some to honour, some to dishonour. Whosoever that purgeth himself, whosoever that yields himself to be purged by the Holy Ghost, him God will use.

13.      HE IS THE GOD OF PURGING. HE WILL PURGE YOU FIRST, AND THEN HE WILL DWELL IN YOU. GOD IS STILL PURGING. I AM HAPPY, HE FIRST OF ALL PURGED ME, HE PURGED ME AND THEN HE DWELLETH IN ME. I WILL COME UNTO YOU AND I WILL ABIDE.

14.      Let me tell you a secret, when the Holy Ghost descended on the Pentecost Day, there were tongues like (in form ) of fire resting upon them. What happened, it penetrated into them according to the word that, “I will come to you and abide with you forever.”

15.      He didn’t go back to God. He abode in the saints. In the wilderness, no matter their murmuring, no matter their fighting, no matter their quarrelling, God did not leave them. His Presence never departed from them.

16.      What did He tell the Church? “I have come down in your midst, I will abide with you forever”, thus saith the Lord, Amen! I am telling you the truth, it is flashing back here.

17.      The Lord is good. I am serving a living God. Watch what is happening. God is here. God is here. Keep on praying for Me. I know there are lots of forces acting there, but there is a supernatural force here! Somebody is not seeing it.

18.      We are going home, it is home-going week. Here is your message Church; here is your message Church. The Lord said, “I have a man, I want to liken you to him. I have given you a name. For people to believe that I commissioned you. But now there is a spirit that is going to operate in you. I am going to combine two spirits in you; it is not two spirits from two different people. This spirit gave this man this gift. The same spirit gave the other man the other gift. I will combine two of them. They will operate in you. That is victory for this day.”

19.      You will now see why the Lord said, from the time of Isaiah the Prophet, down to Jesus Christ, to John the Baptist, that heaven has been suffering violence. Only a violent man will snatch it by force. It is not by sleeping, it is not by dancing, it is not by lazing about. It is by force.

20.      That’s why He said, “Strive that you may enter. You will be pushing people at times. Anybody that stands in your way, push him down. If it is your mother, push her down. If it is your father, push him down!”

21.      Why are you looking at me? Is it not scripture? He that is following me; the cost of discipleship. Read your Bible. You must have to deny your father, your mother, your children, your wife, your business, then take your cross, follow me.

22.      Do not compromise a little here, a little there, no, no, no. And He said, “He that draws back, my Spirit will not be pleased in him”.

23.      Do not be afraid, Heaven is not for people like Aaron who are always afraid of death. Read your Bible.

24.      The Bible said that the multitude carried stone against Caleb and Joshua to stone them to death. They were prepared to die, counting their lives as nothing, for the sake of the Promised Land, but Aaron wanted his life. He fulfilled the scripture: “He that wants to save his life will lose it; he that is ready to lose his life will gain it”. Simple!

25.      The book of Nehemiah. Take your message. The Lord challenged this Church that we should be doing some readings now. The reading of His Urim Thumin, is the reading of the Bible.

26.      Get ready. I want you to take your pencil, get yours. Don’t struggle to read your Bible here. Take your pencil, take your paper, and write the quotations down. When you get home, search the scriptures to know whether your preacher deceived you. Is that not scripture?

27.      Don’t behave like the Thessalonians, behave like the Bereans. Take the word down, when you get home, find out whether the word is watered down, or all that I said are truth.  Amen.

                                                    

                                                                4

LOOK NO MAN IN THE FLESH

I AM STANDING FOR THE FULL WORD. MIXED MULTITUDE, FULL OF DISCOURAGEMENT, ALWAYS WEARING MINISTERS DOWN, TROUBLING MINISTERS WITH THEIR CARNAL CASES!

2.         We have come to Church to worship God. Not to judge carnal cases, how you quarrelled with your husband, how you quarrelled with your maid, how you quarrelled with your co-tenants.

3.         Let me tell you, if you are here, listen to me. If you are living in a yard and you are quarrelling with everybody, that is number one evidence that you are not yet converted. You may see vision, you may prophesy, you may praise with anointing, yet you are not converted.

4.          Be very careful! You have to find out the testimony that is following you. Find out why you are persecuted. Some people are persecuted because of their wickedness. And they attribute it to God. God is calling you a liar.

5.         When you are being persecuted because of your wickedness, because of your filthy living in the yard, you do not help in keeping the yard clean. You allow your children to litter dirt everywhere; whatever that is affecting the yard does not affect you.

6.         And you call yourself a child of God: “Hallelujah, we are going to be translated!” Shut up your mouth! Translation is not for you. Cleanliness is next to godliness.

7.         Listen, let me tell you. God instituted environmental sanitation. He told the people of Israel: “Wash yourselves, wash your clothes, keep your camp clean. For I the Lord, I am coming to move in your midst.”

8.         But when you live in a filthy surrounding, and you say you are going for rapture, you are not of the world. Shut up your mouth! You are fully of the world. Do not deceive yourself. Be clean inside and come to the outside.

9.         If you know the way you look outside, that is the way you look inside. You do not go higher than that. Look at your environment, that is your spiritual environment also.

10.      I will tell the Church something on spiritual atmosphere. Be a child of God all through. If they are persecuting you, let people persecute you because of your righteousness, so that you will have a reward in heaven.

11.      Let me tell you one thing. Many people carry their Pentecostal life into this message. What is Pentecostal life?

12.      Look at all the ladies there, very stubborn, very disobedient to their parents, to their elders. Some resist their ministers, calling them names. They ran away from their parents because of their wickedness and ran into the Church.

13.      A foolish pastor that wanted multitude embraced them. They run away from their husbands because of their wicked living. They run to the Pentecostal and said, “My husband is persecuting me because I believe Christ”.

14.      Shut up your mouth! Who is that husband? Who is that man who will not be happy to see his wife living a virtuous life? Who is that man who will not be happy seeing his children living a godly life?

15.      They carried their wickedness into the Pentecostal because the Pentecostals want multitude. They went there. When they heard this message, because it is new, they love our songs; songs that did not reach out there.

16.      People that were not recognized there, they ran into this message. “Nna, they are small in number o. Let me come there. Perhaps, because of my experience, I will blow it well well. I went to Bible College, seven years. I ministered as a pastor, twenty years, organized crusades. One day the Lord revealed this faith, Ooh! I saw my blindness, I have come in, I have come in.”

17.      Tomorrow, a blind pastor will lay hands on him: “In the name of Jesus, you are our pastor.” A blind Church will vote him in: “You will be our pastor” because he is a popular brother, a popular sister; that is a blind Church!

18.      Look no man in the flesh! Very beautiful things do not matter to God. They carried that Pentecostal idea here, living stubborn life. Watch the sister’s eye; it is not crowned with shamefacedness. She sees more than a man’s eyes; very fierce, challenging men, challenging ministers, challenging doctrine.

19.      Cursed is that woman that will take the stand of a man. Thus says the Lord. We are not denominations. We are children of God. No more, no less. God have mercy.

20.      There is one word. The Lord checked me, the same way He checked the use of Minor Prophets. Anything God has called good, do not call it evil. Check your Bible.

21.      No man is minor in the sight of God. No calling is minor in the sight of God. No gift is minor in the sight of God. Christ came down, God Himself died to redeem His people. He is very precious.

22.      “Minor Prophet” language is of theology. Check your Bible. Let me tell you. Check the daughters of Philip. What did God call them? Did God call them minor? Check Agabus. What did God call him?

23.      Check Ephesians 4:11. “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

24.      Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” KJV.

25.      Did God call them Minor Prophets? Are they Minor Prophets? Be very careful Church! The Lord is rebuking you of one thing here.

26.      We carried one Pentecostal language into this message. A man can do everything too much, no man can preach too much. As long as the Lord liveth, Jesus Christ was not a prayer warrior. No man is a prayer warrior; no woman is a prayer warrior.

27.      Hear it now. It brings pride into a man; it brings pride into a woman. The man starts seeing himself instead of God. “I tarried twelve hours”; “I can tarry twenty four hours, fasting;” prayer warrior, prayer warrior.

28.       Who are you? That your prayer, the Lord is not hearing you because of your long prayer, it is not the way you twist it. No. It is just because of His own will: whatever He wants to do, He will do.

29.      We do not pray too much, we do not have prayer warriors. Refrain from that word today. When you want to pray, pray: if you do not want to pray, do not pray. Amen.

THE DANGER OF COMMITTING SIN

Nehemiah 2:10- “When Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, heard of it, it grieved them exceedingly that there was come a man to seek the welfare of the children of Israel.”

2.         You hear it now? Church I want you to pay attention here. Put it down in your paper. When you get home read it, read more than myself.

3.         The Lord has challenged everybody here to learn how to read the Bible very well. How many know that to be truth. And the Lord confirmed it immediately by a vision.

4.         When the people of Israel came back from Egypt and they were journeying there, for every sin they committed, they never went unpunished. They fulfilled scripture.

5.         The Bible said, “Though hands may join hands, no sinner will go unpunished.” God can never overlook any single sin. For any sin you commit as a child of God, you must receive recompense. You hear me now?

6.         A little while, these people started committing sin again. The Lord was grieved. He allowed them to be taken into captivity; no longer in Egypt but now in Babylon—another experience.

7.         Watch these two nations! The Lord told us about Babylon on Wednesday. I can’t remember now. I know the Lord told us about Babylon and Egypt as the seat of knowledge. Civilization started in Egypt and extended to Babylon.

8.         First writing in the world started in Egypt. They wrote hieroglyphs. Babylon wrote cuneiform. Babylon still exists in the map of the world.

9.         Don’t mind William Kumuyi! I was listening to his message the other day. I thought I was playing a cassette, I didn’t know that it was one of the old books that remained in my house where he said, “Babylon, you can’t see Babylon in the map of the world. The Lord wiped it off from the surface of the earth.”

10.      That is rubbish! It is heresy! He is foolish, in spite of his knowledge, he became foolish. Ever learning, never coming to the knowledge of the truth.

11.      And the Lord told us here, check your history; even elementary school children will tell you. Check elementary school history, check somebody in secondary class one.

12.      Babylon was changed, just like the capital of Uganda was changed. Formerly it was not Kampala; the capital of Uganda was Entebbe. Formerly Entebbe and now Kampala.

13.      Just like Nigeria, the capital of Nigeria was Lagos, now it is Abuja. But we have a country called Burkina Faso now. Before it wasn’t Burkina Faso. It was Upper Volta, while Benin Republic was Dahomey. Check your history.

14.      Babylon was changed to Mesopotamia. That was the land Abraham left. Abraham was a Gentile. The Jews begat the Gentiles.  

15.      You will see the genealogy today. The Lord gave me the book of the genealogy of the people of Israel. I opened it. You will see it today. That, if you do not come from Abraham, you are lost. That is where predestination works.

16.      Then you will know who are Abrahams, whether they include the seven sons that were given little gifts and were sent away. You will find out in this message.

17.      Mesopotamia was later changed to Iraq. Is Iraq not in your Bible? It is in your Bible now. Is Iraq not in the map of the world? It is in the world map. Then who phased it out of the world?

18.      I only know of a nation that was phased out and that is Sodom and Gomorrah. I don’t know any other.

19.      When these people were in Babylon they were treated as slaves again. They were taken into captivity. When they committed sin, there were Prophets there; they were Levites, the priests. All of them were taken into captivity. Nobody was spared. You see the danger of committing sin.

20.      Your sin will take this Church into Babylon again. Instead of the Church to continue with God, they will go back to be flushed of unbelief.

21.      Let me tell you one thing. Was it not the same land of Egypt that the sons of Jacob went to purchase corn, and came back within a Sabbath day? Why are they spending 40 years? Why?

22.      All the leaders died, those that remained, told the children, “Brethren we are now in the wilderness, and we are going home. Let us stop here, let ask our men, our fathers that saw our forefathers about the old ways, which is the right way lest we perish. That we might walk therein.”

23.       See those stubborn people, mixed multitude. They said, “What? We will not wait! We know the way. We will go anyhow. They told them, “We will not wait.”

24.      Like they are saying today. Stop where you are standing now, look back, look front, ask yourself about the old way. Walk therein. That is the true way. Old fashioned religion, and they said, “We will not do it.” We want a modern religion, and they are dying.

25.      Look at the Church now. From Babylon, they are going home. Like we are coming out now from Babylon; how many people know that to be truth? We are not redeemed from Egypt.

26.       Our fore-fathers were redeemed from Egypt. That was the Church in the wilderness. The Israelites in the spiritual, they are being called out from Babylon. In a twinkle of an eye, they are coming out now; to live a holy life. Mixed multitude must follow them like they followed their forefathers, the day they were going out from Egypt.

27.      Watch. There was a man called Nehemiah, a brave man of God. There was a chief priest who was around; called Ezra. The Lord was using them. There were other priests also, and you will hear their names today and you will believe that Ephesians 4:11 never started today, Amen.

28.      Any day you get the revelation of it, that will be the day I will be calling ministers to the platform. Until you get the revelation of it, I will not be calling you. Any other ministers may call you but I will not call you. When you get the revelation, the Lord will reveal it.   

29.      How many people have asked me, “Why are you not calling ministers again to the platform?” You will know why! How many people will tarry with Lord no matter what it takes? God bless you Church. Amen. I am blessed!

30.      Now, when Nebuchadnezzar invaded Jerusalem, the city of God, to destroy the temple, he carried away all those precious ornaments of silver and gold. He did not leave the stone, he did not leave the wood, and he did not leave the clay. All of them were taken to captivity, both great and small: Pastor, Evangelist and Apostle.

31.      Any day the Church commits sin and the Lord wants to visit us with His wrath, He will not spare anybody. He will carry all of us. It is a hard test!

32.      When we are now in bondage again, into those people, it will take faithfulness of the Priests and of the Apostles, and of the Levites. Amen.

                                                     6

OUR GOD IS ABLE TO SEE US THROUGH

Now watch! Daniel said, “No, I remember what Solomon told us, when we are taken into captivity to a strange land because of our sins, when we remember our foolishness, turn away from our iniquities, and we pray facing Jerusalem, God will hear us and forgive our sins, forgive our transgressions. And the Lord said, ‘I will do it.’” Daniel remembered it.

2.         Three times every day, the Bible said, “Daniel will go to his window, open it, kneel down and pray, facing Jerusalem, confessing his sins and the sins of his people.”

3.         We will see a man that caused the people of Israel to kneel down, and confess all their sins. Mixed multitudes were taken away from the camp, mixed multitudes coming back from Babylon, no longer Egypt.

4.         Look at Sanballat, Nehemiah obtained permission from the king to rebuild the city of Jerusalem. He called all the elders of Jerusalem, we went to rebuild our city, and they obtained the permission. The Bible said, Sanballat and Tobiah, prominent people in the land, when they heard the news, they were not happy. They took an oath to frustrate God’s people, yet claiming to be their friends. They started devising plans:

5.         “Brethren, you want to go home and build your home? You want to rebuild it. It is a very good thing, we will help you; we will give you money, we will help you put things in order, lest you die young.” You will hear what they answered.

6.         These people were contending, trying to frustrate the people of Israel. We are going furthermore.

7.         Nehemiah 2:19-20 “But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it , they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye do? will ye rebel against the king?

8.         Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.” (KJV)

9.         As long as Nehemiah lived, he remembered the God of Israel, he remembered the commandments given to them that strangers are not partakers of the things of God.

10.      You heard it now! Nehemiah told them: “Though you are laughing at us, because of what God is doing in our midst, we are not discouraged.

11.      Our God is able to prosper us. Continue laughing at us, you are praying that one day this Church will scatter. Prophecy will scatter them; gift will scatter them. Don’t worry, we are trusting the Spirit of God, He will prosper us with all spiritual blessings, with all material blessings. He will keep us in unity; we are standing on a solid foundation, with Christ as our Head.

12.      God is not God of division, every spirit of division in the Church is not of God. No matter how beautiful it looks, if it is not building up the faith, if it is not exhorting, if it is not rebuking, if it is not encouraging, throw it away!

13.      We see this man resisting, trusting God that God is able. Oh! My God is able to see me through. Your God is able to see you through.

14.      Look at this prophecy in the book of Haggai 2:4-6. That is the voice of the Lord. “Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts:

15.      According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.

16.      For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land.”  KJV.

17.      I don’t have any message tonight, I told you so. I told you; hear your message from the Lord, given to me. God is my witness. If you are doubting, come here and see. I have a message which the Lord gave me before then, I put it down.

18.      This morning, the Lord descended again, telling me that He is very glad with the Church because we showered appreciation of His presence in our midst. I mean, everybody believe it to be true and the Lord was glad so much and He will continue doing more.

19.      He is helping us. He said, “Do not be discouraged, do not be afraid, though they may mock you, they may make jest of you, praying for your downfall, I will see you through. I am with you”, that is the spirit of the Lord.

20.      Walk while there is day. Very soon, night will come when no man will walk. Search your scriptures for in it you think you have eternal life. They are they which testify of Me, Christ. No other.

21.      Look at these people, mixed multitudes. They were not Israelites. They were Arabians; from different countries around Jerusalem and they gathered in Babylon; trying to encourage the brethren. See the type of encouragement they were giving them: “What type of building are you trying to build? Which Church are you controlling? Which Church are you building? What are you building on? It will one day collapse. I am watching it. I am watching something. I am watching…!”

22.      What are you watching Sanballat and Tobiah? – They will continue to watch until the people of Israel will settle in Jerusalem. Keep on building Pastor! Evangelist, keep on building! The Lord is with you! Do not be discouraged!

23.      How many know we are building a house? We are building up a spiritual temple for God. We are not flattering any man. Be on your duty post. Keep on searching the scriptures. Mixed multitudes.

24.      Nehemiah 4:1-5; “But it came to pass, that when Sanballat heard that we built the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked the Jews. And he spoke before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said, What do these feeble Jews? will they fortify themselves? will they sacrifice? will they make an end in a day? will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned?

25.      Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, Even that which they build, if a fox go up, he shall even break down their stone wall.

26.      Hear, O our God; for we are despised: and turn their reproach upon their own head, and give them for a prey in the land of captivity:

27.      And cover not their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before thee: for they have provoked thee to anger before the builders.” (KJV).

28.      You hear what is happening. When they heard what the Lord was doing in the midst of His people, these people continued mocking the people of God, mocking the children of God, making a jest of them.

29.      They thought God was not listening. They did not know; “Who can curse what God blessed? Who can bless what God has cursed?”

30.      Construction has started. They thought it would not start. They heard only commission to go and rebuild. They went about gossiping. Now the building has started. They are not yet tired.

31.      They went and gathered people, “Nna, what type of Church are they building? It can never stand. Even when I go there, only one word, they will see their nakedness. I will destroy all their works; even the joy will push it down. Look at them.

32.      Nehemiah said, “Hear Oh God. Do not allow them to get away. Visit them with your wrath because of the word of their mouth against your people. God is able to fight for His people. What are they saying concerning this Church? The Lord knows what you are saying concerning this Church.

33.      The Lord knows what everybody is saying concerning the gift in the Church. You may not know. God is hearing. God knows I am saying the truth. The Lord revealed three names around this message. The Lord revealed three good names around this message! One from inside, two from outside.

34.      You remember the prophecy of the Lord: “Somebody must die here one day” When? I do not know. Look at the Chief Priest confirming this truth, Chief Priest confirming it. Even when the pastor confirms something as the Chief Priest, people will doubt his calling: “Who made him Chief Priest?” How many know the Pastor to be the Chief Priest? Amen.

35.      Ezra 4:1-4 “Now, when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto the LORD God of Israel; Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the Chief of the fathers, and said unto them, let us build with you: for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esarhaddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither.

36.       But Zerubbabel, and Joshua, and the rest of the chief of fathers of Israel, said unto them, ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the LORD God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us. Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building.” (KJV) 

37.      They are the adversaries of the people of Israel; mixed multitude; they are enemies. They are not your friends, Church! Be very careful. Bible called them adversaries. We know the only adversary we have is Satan and when Satan is operating in a man, he will challenge every move of the Holy Spirit.

38.      Ministers are you listening? Church, are you listening? How many believe that this is the voice of the Lord to this Church? Brother, be very careful.

39.      Not all that come to you: “Brother, we want to help you organize a crusade. You know we are in the message. You know how we have been in the message.”

40.      These people worshipped in Bethel; worshipping with the people of Israel. They were the people resisting the building of the temple and the temple is now completed. It remains painting and packing in. See the way they are coming now.

41.      “We want to help you finish it. We have heard your God is God. He is moving in your midst, bring miracle. We believe all of them to be true.” All the gifts! That brother is an Apostle indeed! That brother is a Pastor. He is an Evangelist. It is now I know. I did not know oo. Brother, I am sorry oo.”

42.      No more! Before you know it, “I am going to Onitsha Church, two days’ meeting; four days’ meeting. Brother, you know.”

43.      Fathers and mothers in the Church, hear what God is saying. If you are a father, pay attention; if you are a mother pay attention. I write to you fathers because you know Him and that has existed from the beginning, I write unto you young men because you have overcome the Evil One. I write unto you fathers because you know me that I do not lie. I write to you young men.

44.      Church, be careful! If you are in this Church, we know the part you are playing. When God speaks, you know God is talking about you. You want to use Government to stop us. You have been praying so that we scatter. Our God is able to bind us with the truth; to bind us with the truth; to fill us with the Holy Ghost.

45.      You do not know the pupil of God. How can you know us? We can never. We don’t want to die. Our God is a jealous God. We are sharing the land.  You are not children of Abraham. We know you. You carry sermon book.

46.      No matter how they come, no matter how beautiful, don’t allow them. May they never preach in your pulpit. Get out of the camp! Let me tell you, when these people resisted, you will see what happened.

47.      Brethren, these people are very wise. They devised another plan, a beautiful plan:  “They recognized that strangers have no inheritance in the land of Israel and they do not want us to inherit this land. Now, let us devise a plan – we will cause them to marry our daughters.” You will see it in this message.

48.      The Lord showed me three people concerning this message. One inside, two outside. Who will challenge God? Raise up your hand. Put God to test now. Who is on the Lord’s side? I am on the Lord’s side!

49.      The Lord said, “Come. Take your message: It is not my message. I am a man. He is God. He is faithful. He is never tired.

50.      Old, old Prophets in the faith will say, “I cannot steal; I can test every sister in the Church. If you are not a virgin, you will not marry a holy man, a minister. Ok, come to my house now. You know I want to marry. Let me see. After all I have power to forgive you.”

51.      Before you know it, fornication. Rebuke him; he will quote scripture, quote sermon book. If you catch him red-handed, he is ready to die instead of saying the truth.

52.      Watch their doctrine, watch their lives. No man will live higher than his doctrine. You are compromising. Brother that is here, you are a compromising minister, respecting somebody because of age, because of his twenty years in the message.

53.       Let me tell you; you can be one million years in the message and can never spend one second in the Lord. You can be one million years in the message of the hour, not one second in the Lord! You spend one million years outside the Lord. You joined as a mixed multitudes!

54.      YOU ARE NOT A NATIONAL; YOU ARE A MOABITE’ YOU ARE AN AMALEKITE; YOU ARE AN ARABIAN. YOU HAVE NO INHERITANCE IN THIS MESSAGE OF THE HOUR WHICH IS THE HOLY GHOST TAKING US TO GLORY. THERE IS NO OTHER REVIVAL. WE ARE TELLING YOU TRUTH.

55.       IN THE EVENING TIME, THERE SHALL BE LIGHT. THIS IS THE EVENING TIME OF THE MESSAGE. THIS IS THE EVENING TIME OF THIS GOSPEL. WE ARE NOT BRINGING A NEW GOSPEL. WE ARE COPYING THE MESSAGE!

56.      WE ARE PREACHING DOWN THE HEADSTONE. BROTHER BRANHAM DID NOT BRING DOWN THE HEADSTONE. WE ARE ORDAINED BY GOD FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD TO BRING BROTHER BRANHAM, AND OTHER PROPHETS THAT WENT BEFORE HIM, TO PERFECTION.

57.      My ministry is there. Your ministry is there. Nobody is idle in the House of God. Everybody must have a portion because you are from Israel. Claim your own portion. We are sharing inheritance.

58.      Let me tell you, if you are lazy, your relations will take your land. You may be there somebody will open eyes, face you like this, make knife like this, and before you know it, he will destroy the old boundary lines.

59.      Let me tell you the truth. When you are sharing land, your eyes must be red. After sharing, you have got your own inheritance, and then there will be peace.

60.       If you want peace, be ready for war. There is no peace without war. You will war first. Then, peace will come. Be ready for war. That was why the voice went forth.

61.      After this the voice went forth – war, war, war, war – war, war, war, war. This is the war. We are warring because we are sharing inheritance. We must be wounded. We have seen it.

62.      The Lord is here. How many believe that to be true? Shout Halleluiah! Amen! Don’t compromise. Our God is good. Our God is good! He has visited His people. I can see Him moving about. I am telling you the truth. I lie not in Christ.

63.      He is in the Bride. He is moving about, guiding everything, and dictating every move. Shout Halleluiah! Amen! It makes me good. Let us see Him. We are still moving. Amen.

BEWARE OF MIXED MULTITUDE

Nehemiah chapter 6:17-19. (KJV) “Moreover in those days the nobles of Judah sent many letters unto Tobiah, and the letters of Tobiah came unto them.

2.         For there were many in Judah sworn unto him, because he was the son-in-law of Shechaniah the son of Arah; and his son Jonathan had taken the daughter of Meshullam the son of Berechiah.

3.         Also they reported his good deeds before me, and uttered my words to him. And Tobiah sent letters to put me in fear”.

4.         You hear it now. Church, be attentive now. Pay attention: Pastors, pay attention. Everybody, young and old, hear the voice of the Lord. In the land of Babylon; when God wanted His people to go home, they were rebuilding Jerusalem. They were about to go.

5.         Watch. All their secrets, Nehemiah told the men: “Now we are going to work, I am going to share it to you. Not all of you will carry block, not all of you will be masons. Some will be watchmen; gallant soldiers. You will be manning the camp. Others will be building. If there is any enemy, even if Sanballat and Tobiah will come with their friends, fight them to the last. After all, government has given us authority to rebuild Jerusalem.”

6.         It is written, “Government must be upon His shoulder.” Which government? Which shoulder? The Church is the highest authority on earth. The Church is the highest court on earth. Any man called of God is the highest judge on earth. We have authority to preach God (the Headstone) down. Nobody will stop us.

7.         But watch. Nehemiah had his own mistakes. The Bible said noble men of Israel, they were not foreigners. Noble men of Judah, children of Abraham by lineage, they went away, married Tobiah’s daughters, became in-laws with their enemies.

8.         They started mixing up gradually, gradually. What happened? Before they knew what happened, Tobiah tricked them: “You know we were in-laws, you know we love one another. I have given you my daughter now. Can I speak anything good of you and then come again to speak evil of you? No, No, No. What will happen is this, “I want to know what Nehemiah and his men are doing in Jerusalem”.

9.         The Bible said, “Noble men of Israel wrote letter secretly and revealed the whole secret of the people of Israel and posted to Tobiah and Sanballat.”

10.      These people read the letter and replied to these noble men, Ezra did not know, Nehemiah did not know.

11.      You hear what is happening? Ministers did not know. Prominent sisters in our midst that stayed long with us; big brothers, took pen, wrote, and posted to their enemies.

12.      What happened? The Bible said that the man was armed. With deceit, he had devised a way of coming in. The way had been paved. Before they knew what was happening, Ezra the chief High Priest lost the book.

13.      He lost the Book of Covenant; the book Moses handed over to the people; the Book of Law. The man lost it. You see the danger today!

14.      When a man forgets the word of God, he is finished. He won’t know his enemies again: brother is attacking brother and sister is attacking sister, neglecting their enemy.

15.      Watch that prostitute. She was dancing for Herod. She recognized her enemy. When she had the opportunity to request for one thing, she did not make mistake. She consulted her mother.

16.      “What are you asking me? Don’t you know who your enemy is? He is John the Baptist. Get his head! It is not by hear say. Let his head be brought in a pan so that it will be confirmed that it is true. The man spoke one thing, “whatever you demand now, I will give you.”

17.      You that love women that dance; you that love to kiss women; you that love to touch women, giving false promise of marriage, “Sister, I will marry you.” God is holding the word of your mouth. You love to kiss women; “You know I love you, Sister, I will live with you. The Lord revealed it, you will be my wife.” How do you know?

18.      “I have been praying now. O glory glory, glory to the Lord. The Prophet said, ‘Deep calleth deep and the deep responds. It has been long I was watching you. I will give you the flower. It is a reward.”

19.      She would say, “Brother, are you hungry now? I prepared jollof rice. Do you care?” “God bless you.”

20.      The next day, “Brother, well, I will come and carry your clothes. I will wash it.”

21.      “He would say, “Well, God bless you my sister. That is the duty of the Church. You are washing your minister’s clothes. You will get a minister’s reward.”

22.      “Me? Reward? Heee! You know brother said he will marry me. I will go home and tell my people I have gotten a husband; very soon he will call my name from the pulpit.”

23.      You are possessed. When the brother does not know what you are thinking. You are possessed! Repent!

24.      These people were saved and they forgot that they were the people of God that they were forbidden to marry from the heathen nations. You that are interested to marry a heathen woman, you will see what the Prophet said in the Bible.

25.      When he was drawing the attention of these people that erred, he told them: “Don’t you remember what happened to our father Solomon? No matter how God loved him, he must repent. See how the Lord punished him.”

26.      Do you think you can go unpunished, if you disobey? God can never change. Whatever God cursed, is cursed. Whatever He blesses is blessed. Don’t worry. The Lord is talking to you. He is not a man. Be spiritual. We are reading. Let us go further.

27.      The book of Nehemiah chapter 7, verse 1 to 4, (KJV): verse 1, “Now it came to pass, when the wall was built and I had set up the doors and porters and the singers and the Levites were appointed.”

28.      You see it now? When the house was built, everything put in place, Levites, not Levite; priests were called up to come and man it. But Ezra left the book and allowed the strangers to come in, to the extent that Sanballat and Tobiah came in and he made them treasurers in the Church, these people that were persecuting the Church.

29.      The man said; “You know, if you are in heaven now, your relations will not go to hell. I am now a priest, you know my son is marrying your daughter. We are good in-laws. Come and take position here. I will make you Commissioner for Finance.”

30.      You hear it. It never started today. “I. M.” (imammadu) spoils the things of God. There is no “I. M.” in the things of God. You must stand alone. Forget about your old friends. Throw them away! We don’t make friends with the things of God. Don’t try it; else you will receive a curse.

31.      Watch, strangers came in and started teaching us to pray. Before you know it, all of them invaded the pulpit. Everything got spoilt.

32.      That was why, when Jesus came down, the situation did not change. It was the same as Jeremiah met them. Jeremiah met the situation; he called them fornicators and liars, dupes, armed robbers, coming into the Church of God, sitting down, with special seats arranged for them and said, “We are saved.”

33.      Even when the Lord said, “I have seen you. Do you think my house is a hiding place for criminals?” Do you know what they were saying?

34.      “Jeremiah we have heard you. Don’t say it again. Go to your own nation, and tell them. Enough is enough.”

35.      They want the Pastor to tell them what they want to hear, always dictating to every minister what to say. When Jesus came, He met it the same way: “Going, going, gone!” that is bazaar. No! “Try your luck, try your luck, try your luck.” Jesus came there.

36.      He called Peter: “Give me the strongest cane. Today is warfare, warfare!” Just like Moses said, “Who is on the Lord’s side? Come this way! Take up your sword every man. Kill, spare not!” Jesus did the same.

37.      He did not mind who was there. He overthrew their tables. Look at the Church and how it started. Strangers in the camp, mixed multitudes. When they married these women, these women came in with their gods.

38.      Brother, when you marry a woman, you marry her god. Check your Bible. King Solomon married many wives. The Bible said that when they were coming, they were coming with their individual gods.

39.      That time, Solomon was a young man; he saw nothing wrong in it, even if it meant displeasing God. the Bible said, when he grew old, he could not control his family again. The women started controlling him.

40.      They said, “My lord, I am celebrating and dedicating tomorrow to the gods of my father. Can you provide me with one cow and one goat?” They don’t sacrifice with ram or lamb, the way to make sacrifice. They normally go dog, goat and cow? Check them. They don’t use lamb. They don’t use sheep.

41.      Go to any denomination, it must be the same thing. Get dog, get cow, one goat, and one fowl. Check it. And then, Solomon did not see anything wrong in using a cow. Using a goat, there is nothing wrong. He compromised.

42.      Even if it said, bow down a little before you come into the sanctuary of my god, Solomon would bow down and go in, because he is now a mad man.

43.      When a man loses the word of God, he becomes mad. He will be doing things anyhow. Let me tell you, even if a cow will talk to him, “Come back,” he will never think. Mama, you hear it?

44.      When a man loses the word of God, even if a dog will speak like a man, he won’t hear again. Check your Bible. When Balaam forgot God, a donkey spoke. Balaam didn’t wonder. He did not wonder, “All these years, the donkey never spoke before.”

45.      The Bible said, he hardened his heart and beat the donkey. He was going anyhow, and he died anyhow. Amen.

FOLLOW ME AS I FOLLOW CHRIST

God is God. Watch these people, God became angry. And in this place where we are reading, verse 2; it is sharing of inheritance.

2.         “That I gave my brother Hanani, and Hananiah the ruler of the palace, charge over Jerusalem: for he was a faithful man, and feared God above many.

3.         And I said unto them, Let not the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun be hot; and while they stand by, let them shut the doors, and bar them: and appoint watches of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, everyone in his watch, and every one to be over against his house.”

4.         Hear it a little. Church, David did it. Moses did it. At a time Moses felt he could not rule the people of Israel alone. He appointed judges. No single pastor can pastor a Church. That is why the Bible said, “Pastors in the Church. But only one will pastor the Church at a particular time; others will be giving him helping hands.” You hear it now.

5.         Now watch, these people did not want to make any mistake. They knew they had enemies. They appointed men, men that knew the scriptures very well; men that knew their enemies very well, and that could identify them whenever they come.

6.         They said, “Lock yourselves. Build a wall around yourselves, don’t allow any intruder to come in. keep watch over yourselves. Keep watching.”

7.          How many Churches can do this? The pastor will allow every Tom and Dick and Harry to fly in, in the name of end time message; “Proving word: God the same yesterday, today and forever.” Carrying ‘Only Believe” and sermon books, wearing coat and one big bag: “God has called me.”

8.         When he is going, “Brother, you see, I don’t have what to eat today. Things are hard. Brother, you see, give me some money now.” We know you very well. We will give you money. That is your mission. Money will not save you; rather it will bring you condemnation. Amen.

9.         How ministers will learn to cage their Church; carrying Bible all about. What does it mean to cage your Church? Build your Church up in the Holy Ghost until you are certain that every sister, every brother, is completely filled with Holy Ghost to the point that they will be able to look at a man and tell him; “We have heard. You are a false minister.”

10.      Then you can go anywhere you like, and feel free. When you don’t prepare your people and fill them very well with the Holy Ghost, the danger is this.

11.      When you go out, Sanballat and Tobiah and his men will come: “Oh, you are blessed now. You know we have been with the pastor and the other ministers. We travelled together. What of Brother Kelechi, what of Brother Amankem, Mama Obosi, Brother this and Brother that and every other person? Are you surprised? I know all of them now. We were together in Lagos, we were together in Port Harcourt, we preached in Obosi, we preached in Lagos.”

12.      Aaron will come: “Brethren, this morning, our brother from Enugu, from Enu-Igbo will be addressing you.”

13.      The same spirit “Men of Israel, come and see the god that delivered you.” Why are we warning against such thing? It is a spirit. When it anoints a man, it becomes very difficult to kill. Brother can lower the standard of the message a little.

14.      I told my Pastor the other time. I said, what a genuine child of God? And watch a false believer. Every false believer will believe every doctrine to be truth, but when it comes to marriage, when he wants to marry, he will preach his own version of the doctrine.

15.      All along, all the Prophets preached, Brother said that it is true; all the Bible said, Brother said that it is true. When it comes to him, note it, he will preach his own version of his revelation.

16.      Then you will hear, “the Lord revealed to me.” Before you know it, he will be quoting: “After all, the Lord told the Prophet to marry a prostitute. Is it not God?” turning the scripture upside down.

17.      He could not read the next verse to know that the Lord was likening Himself to the people of Israel though they were playing prostitution, yet the Lord was seeing their hearts.

18.      We are back to Pentecost! It makes me fine! Who is that man that will challenge God? Who are you? Doubt one word, instant death!

19.      I was telling a little sister the other day. In fact, I do not argue with people over scripture. I don’t argue over doctrine. I have ministers that will come to you. Tell me when you want them to come, I will send them. They can debate. They can argue. But they will not quarrel with you. Even if you are not agreeing, but as for me, when you disagree with them, bring me in. That is the showdown. The Lord will decide who is on the Lord’s side.

20.      But if you stand before me now and I declare the whole counsels of God and you say, “I do not believe”, it is instant death. From that day, you will not believe it again forever. You see the danger.

21.      I love Brother Kelechi so much, always putting me in remembrance. “Be mindful of the word of God spoken to you through the mouth of the Prophets and Apostles.” Whatever He did in those days, He will do it again today. He can never change His word. You can now imagine, how many Apostles in our day.

22.      How many can come up and tell the congregation, “how many of you can accuse me of sin, of unbelief?” How many of you can accuse me of taking a kobo from him falsely. Don’t I have the same apostolic spirit that followed them? If I have done what they have done and even more, what makes me inferior in their eyes?

23.      How many can come out this day and say things like that? “Follow me as I follow Christ.” That is why the spirit continues to tell me; “I am now challenging this Church, every man must live his sermon. Anyone that is not worthy preaching is not worthy living the life. Anything you cannot live the life, stop preaching it.

24.      Who do you want to live the life? You are a hypocrite! You want to tie heavy burden on people’s neck but you cannot help them carry one burden. You are a hypocrite. You are a teacher of the law.

25.      The Lord is here. Be very careful. Even if it remains one person here, I am going to keep reading this scripture because it is manna that is given for today. It will not be carried over.

26.      I am glad. How many are blessed? I am blessed. When I look at the man standing behind me, it makes me fine. Be spiritual my brother.

27.      There was a man that went to higher heaven and was telling the Church; “Lest you exalt me more than I am.” How many people know he was talking of himself?

28.      Read your Bible. Paul was taken to higher heaven. Let me tell you, Brother Branham went to higher heaven. Brother Branham went to deepest hell.

29.      Hear me now, one day, the Lord helping me; I am going to preach a message evangelical, titled “Message from Hell.”

30.      “Message from Hell,” you that are here and don’t want to repent, then you will see, God will vindicate it. I am setting aside a day for it. Maybe during Easter revival or at Obosima or at Eha-Amufu, I don’t know, I don’t want to build where somebody is building.  

31.      I preached a message in my house. A message called “Ready to Die”. Sister Grace nearly fainted. After the message, she turned and said, “Brother if this message is like this, if I knew, I wouldn’t have gone this way: “Brother, let me tell you the truth brother, if I knew I wouldn’t have married you.” “Ready to Die.”

32.      The message was titled, “Ready to Die”. Brother Bon was there. The house was filled. Everybody was panicking. Brother, you were there, your wife was there. Sister Ngozi was there. Sister Ngozi said, “Brother, brother who will be saved?

33.      “Ready to Die” God helping me, I am going to preach it and another message that is following it: “There is Fire on the Mountain.”

34.      I am not planting where somebody has planted. I am planting on a fresh ground, not believing William Branham. I am not believing him, he paved the way, and I came in. When he died, he said we should continue.

35.      When Jesus went home, what did he say? A very good song like the song of Moses: “Continue.” Jesus said “Continue, I am going to my father, bye- bye.” The Saviour said, “Continue, I am going to my father, bye, bye.”

36.      For Moses did not take them into the land of Rest. Joshua did not take them into the land of Rest. For if they had entered, we would not be talking of this Rest.

37.      We would have settled, why are we struggling? Why all the fighting? We are fighting our way into Canaan. The Church is marching on; the gate of hell can never prevail. Though the giants may try to hinder, our God is able to see us through. For He that started the good work in us, will continue to keep us until the day of Christ.

38.      We are sharing the inheritance. Now, all these priests are now manning the Church. And they are given chance to share the land, to the descendants of Abraham who came out from Babylon, excluding the multitudes. If you are from Arab, you can never claim to come from Judah.

39.      Though you may go with them, when they want to share the land, you won’t get any portion. You can never share with the people of Benjamin. You may settle in their land but you have no inheritance.

40.      A lot of people are in this message; they have no inheritance in the message. They have no inheritance in the message. Now the land would be shared, the book is to be opened now. The Bible called it “the book of records.”

41.      That was a book of genealogy where all the tribes of Israel that came from Abraham were written. And they shared the land according to their tribes. Amen.

BE ON THE LORD’S SIDE

Nehemiah 7:1-4 (KJV), verse 4: “Now the city was large and great: but the people were few therein,”

2.         You seen it now? A very large city and very few people. When are we going to be millions again? Brother Branham said, “God does not identify Himself with multitudes. The land is too small but it has to be expanded to accommodate multitude.

3.         Be spiritual. If you go about, you see how people are pulling down their old Churches, building larger synagogues to accommodate more people bound to hell.

4.         The same way, the Bible said, “In the book of Isaiah, because of their sins, hell was enlarged to accommodate all of them.

5.         Verse 4 “Now the city was large and great but the people were few therein, and the houses were not builded.”

6.         The Lord said, all the people of Jerusalem, the city of God, the descendants of Abraham, put their names in this book of genealogy; so that everybody will know where they came from. Put it there. Apportion the land unto them, not for strangers.”

7.         These are children of the province of Jerusalem; the people of Israel. No other. No more, no less. When you finish that chapter, you will see how they were recorded. Balance it with the book of Ezra 2:1-10. Balance it.

8.         The book of Ezra 2:1-10 (KJV). “Now these are the children of the province that went up out of the captivity, of those which had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away unto Babylon, and came again unto Jerusalem and Judah, every one unto his city;

9.         Which came with Zerubbabel: Jeshua, Nehemiah, Seraiah, Reelaiah, Mordecai, Bilshan, Mizpar, Bigvai, Rehum, Baanah. The number of the men of the people of Israel:”

10.      You see the chief priest confirming it, that Nehemiah did not tell lies. In the mouth of two or three witnesses, the truth shall be established. When you finish the chapter, you will see that no stranger got any inheritance there.

11.      The Lord told us two days ago, “If you are a stranger in the household of Israel and you want to partake of the inheritance, you must first of all surrender your life to them, to be circumcised. You strip off every Pentecostal idea, every false idea.”

12.      Let me tell you, you knew why we had problem, we are blind at times. That was what killed the Pentecostals. Read the Bible. In the book of Acts of the Apostles, the Bible said, “When the Church increased in number, when many people came into the Church, reasoning and quarrelling started.”

13.      They started building cages: “We belong to the Gentiles, we belong to the Jews. We belong to Samaria. Brother, why are you neglecting these people? God revealed it to me, I will publish it in the streets, in the highways, I will proclaim it on the mountain tops!”

14.      We are fighting Mbaise spirit in this Church. Be careful. Be on the Lord’s side. When the Church increased, people came in from everywhere, problem started.

15.      “We are raising a lot of money in the Church and it is not going to the people, and we are neglecting these people. The money is going to Ngwa people. It is going to Anambra people and Imo people are neglected. We are the people that started this Church!

16.      “To tell you the truth, we built the pew, we built the pulpit. I remember how we were travelling here and there, how we were running around, and they were neglecting us. No, no, no, no, n, no! We will not agree! We will fight!

17.      Check your Bible, Peter looked at them and said: “Men and brethren, why must we quarrel over money? Why not trust that they are brethren? Why not trust us the Apostles? You have committed this money into our hands. We are not taking your money.

18.      “Let us appoint seven able men of honest report. Let them take care of this money, while we ourselves will give ourselves, our lives to preaching the word. That is what we have come for and not to make merchandize of men. To quarrel over tithe, quarrel over offering, quarrel over Church fund; no no, no no!”

19.      We are not building Mbaise brethren, Onitsha brethren, Obosi brethren. Not in this most holy Faith! He that has an ear let him hear what the spirit is saying to the Church.

20.      Watch it. Before they knew it, mighty men came with their money, carried it into the Pastor’s hand. The next day, “Brother, this place is too hot. Go and estimate the thing. Tell me how much it is going to cost to build a very good Church. We will not stay here again.”

21.      Brother would say, “Glory, glory! Revival! Revival! Revival! A big brother will build us a big Church. He is doing a good work indeed. Before you know it, another day he would come and say, “Brother you can never be riding this bicycle. I will give you a Mercedes car. You merit it. After all, Idahosa is riding Mercedes 200. Look at Patrick, who started recently, ZOE ministry, driving Mercedes. Take this and get a car.”

22.      Brother would say, “Glory, Glory! God has come down! Watch, fornication is no longer sin, covetousness is no longer sin. They will now construct special seats for them and crown them.

23.      Watch them! They will come with their ideas. “Brother, look at the way the Church is going. I don’t like it. When we were in the Pentecostal, the way we were doing it, the Lord was blessing us. We had a very big choir.

24.      “We were not just clapping hands, that one is old fashioned. We will buy musical instruments. If you don’t know how to do it, I will organize a choir. We will hire one musician; he will come and teach us.”

25.      Brother said, “We are going to play with band. Glory.” Before you know it, music is now in the Church. Who introduced it? A big brother with big idea. He is the pastor.

26.      “Mixed multitude!” Look at their wives, when they are coming with big scarves, touching the ceiling, with high heels and miniskirts, walking like turkey (tolotolo). The pastor will be seeing it and praising it, because they are elders’ wives.

27.      The next day, pastor will be in the pulpit, his wife with big scarf and high heels. “Glory, glory. These things don’t matter. It is fine hair now with miniskirts.”

28.      Let me tell you, before you know it, they don’t tie “wrapper” again. They will introduce uniform for the choir. One miniskirt. One “konkosa” for the men. When they raise up their arms, you will see their bodies. Before you know it, this brother don come, like Idahosa, “I was beating the big drum; gbim, gbim.” Everybody will join.

29.      Watch what happens, people will look at the pastor. Nobody will talk. All the people in the Church, they borrowed the idea. You see why it is wrong to accommodate anybody in the camp because of money. Ministers take note. Brothers and sisters take note.

30.      Drop every Pentecostal idea; drop all your old ideas, UCC idea, Deeper Life idea; Roman Catholic idea; Block Rosary idea; Odozi-obodo idea; throw them into the dust bin!

31.      When God called Moses, the whole theology he learnt in Egypt for forty years, God took him into the wilderness forty good years and flushed them. When God called Saul of Tarsus, all the theology he learnt in the school of Gamaliel, three good years he graduated in Jewish law, when God arrested him, carried him into Arabia, placed him there. “Don’t preach; don’t teach until I finish with you.” For three good years he flushed out all these Jewish ideas and then filled him up with the Holy Ghost.

32.      Then he was able to say, “The message I am preaching, I received of no man.” People are introducing William Branham’s sermons, reproducing it. If Brother Branham is living in the flesh now, he would have continued preaching harder sermons; because the world is now worse than it was when he was alive.

33.      The Lord would have continued showing him visions and prophecies. The Lord will not stop until we are translated. Then this message will go away and go to the Jews to perfect them. Only the remnant there. We are sharing the inheritance. Look at the great compromise.

34.      Nehemiah 8:1-18 (KJV) “And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded to Israel.

35.      And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month. And he read therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law.

36.      And Ezra the scribe stood upon a pulpit of wood, which they had made for the purpose; and beside him stood Mattithiah, and Shema, and Anaiah, and Urijah, and Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right hand; and on his left hand, Pedaiah, and Mishael, and Malchiah, and Hashum, and Hashbadana, Zechariah, and Meshullam. And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people;) and when he opened it, all the people stood up:”

37.      And Ezra opened the book in the sight of the people. Do you hear what happened there? When people were gathered, the chief priest came to the pulpit and he was about to open the book, the book of the law, that now was recovered and wanted to read it to the people of Israel.

38.      What did he do first? The Bible said that he summoned the priests, one by one, lined them up on their seats, some on the left hand side, some on the right hand side, to guard the ark.

39.      How many know that the word of God is the Ark of God? That is the ark of covenant. Any day you break one Word, you are breaking God’s covenant. God will never hold you guiltless. Be very careful, Ministers.

40.      How can you call up a minister that doesn’t believe you to the platform? You are as guilty as calling a Roman Catholic father to the pulpit. No matter how little that doctrine might be, he quotes everything he believes, and you know he is wrong, you have corrected him, he said no.

41.      He does not only believe it to be true, he will go ahead teaching other people to believe that it is true, holding a big log (register). You still identify the person as a minister. Whosoever does so is a blind minister. You don’t know your enemy.

42.      No matter how fine the person might look, when Brother Kelechi was teaching the Church, he told us, “If you see Satan coming, you can hardly notice it. Don’t mind what artists are painting, painting him black, with two horns and one long tail. That is a lie. That is not how Satan is. He is a very beautiful angel, more beautiful than every other angel.

43.      “When his beauty entered his head, he was swollen up with pride and said to God, ‘I will ascend into the highest, and I will take your throne;’ very beautiful thing.”

44.       When you look at the way the reverend father is moving, with his book, will you call him devil? If you watch the way the Pentecostal preachers are preaching, watch their views, the way they hold their Bible, shouting, you can never believe that they are in the wrong. Brethren, let us be careful.

45.      Watch what is happening now. Verse 6-18. (KJV)“And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the LORD with their faces to the ground.

46.      Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the law: and the people stood in their place. So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.

47.      And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the LORD your God; mourn not, nor weep.

48.      For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law. Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

49.      So the Levites stilled all the people, saying, Hold your peace, for the day is holy; neither be ye grieved. And all the people went their way to eat, and to drink, and to send portions, and to make great mirth, because they had understood the words that were declared unto them.

50.      And on the second day were gathered together the chief of the fathers of all the people, the priests, and the Levites, unto Ezra the scribe, even to understand the words of the law. And they found written in the law which the LORD had commanded by Moses, that the children of Israel should dwell in booths in the feast of the seventh month: And that they should publish and proclaim in all their cities, and in Jerusalem, saying, Go forth unto the mount, and fetch olive branches, and pine branches, and myrtle branches, and palm branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written.

51.      So the people went forth, and brought them, and made themselves booths, every one upon the roof of his house, and in their courts, and in the courts of the house of God, and in the street of the water gate, and in the street of the gate of Ephraim.

52.      And all the congregation of them that were come again out of the captivity made booths, and sat under the booths: for since the days of Jeshua the son of Nun unto that day had not the children of Israel done so.

53.      And there was very great gladness. Also day by day, from the first day unto the last day, he read in the book of the law of God. And they kept the feast seven days; and on the eighth day was a solemn assembly, according unto the manner.”

54.      You see it now. How can you say amen to what you don’t believe? “Mixed multitude!” Do you believe it? Yes, we believe, when you don’t believe, stumbling the Church, defiling the camp of God. Before you say “Amen” to anything, be very sure you believe it; be sure you understand it.

55.      Don’t marry from a heathen land. When you wanted to marry, you went for the heathen. To begin with, you are a hypocrite. The Church is becoming somehow now, their faces are changing a little. That is what I want to see.

56.      The Bible said, “When the book was opened and was read to them, they started weeping. Their faces changed. They were wearing bad faces. They started saying, ‘Remember today, today is Sabbath day. Don’t behave like this, pastor, teacher, please pat them on the back to comfort them, so that they will start going home. I am not comforting you.”

57.      When I will come in your midst, will I come with rebuke? I come to build up and not to tear you down. I am giving you the truth. I am not your pastor. Your pastor can pamper you a little, lest you become offended. Mark them that cause division in the Church; divisions in the faith, division in conduct, division in order. Take them out of the camp.

58.      The Lord is challenging you now to take His word. That is where your life lies. That is where my life lies. That is your hope for eternity. Amen.

BE ANGRY AT SIN

Nehemiah 9:1-4. (KJV)“Now in the twenty and fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, and with sackclothes, and earth upon them. And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.

2.           And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of the LORD their God one fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped the LORD their God.

3.           Then stood up upon the stairs, of the Levites, Jeshua, and Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Chenani, and cried with a loud voice unto the LORD their God.” Amen.

4.           Church shout “Amen!” If you hear it to be truth, say amen. The children of Israel did what? Separated! From the mixed multitude! I have no message! The Lord said it is your message. I have washed my hands. Quote the Lord.

5.           They are now about to confess their sins to God. Before you can confess your sins to God, you will separate yourself from every known sin. It is not when you know the sin, you continue with it. This sin was so great that Nehemiah nearly killed men that married these strange women. He drove them away, held them on the heads and was pulling off their hair and their beards.

6.           You can pull off one from your head so you can see how painful it is. These are Nazarenes. They were Nazarites. They were holding their locks on their heads, pulling them. You will see it.

7.           The same way, every called man of God, every called pastor, every called evangelist, every called apostle, every called teacher, every called Prophet will do it against a brother, against a sister, whether you like it or not. You are a mixed multitude. Is it not biblical?

8.           Check the New Testament: “Come out from among them and be ye separate. I will bless you, you will be my people, and I will be your God. If you continue in compromise, you will not be my people, and I will not be your God. I will not bless you. How can I bless you in a strange land? How can I bless you and bless my enemy? No no, no, no! It cannot happen.”

9.           The Lord is the Lord. He is in the camp! “And the seed of Israel separated themselves, the seed of Abraham, separated themselves from the mixed multitude. And stood and confessed their sins and confessed the iniquity of their fathers.

10.       All and that of their fathers. If you want to repeat the sins of your fathers, read the verse 20-31 of that place. They first of all mentioned how God was with their fathers in the wilderness and blessed them with manna and with spiritual water, from the spiritual rock, and how they failed God, by putting Him to test, and He killed them.

11.       They confessed all these sins, and confessed their own. How they married strange women; how they allowed the foreigners to be in their camp. How they gave strangers position in the house of God. How they allowed false ministers to come to the pulpit. They confessed all.

12.       They didn’t say, “After all, that one has been forgiven. They stood before the Lord, sincerely confessed all.” Watch how the Lord reacted. And they stood up in their place.

13.       Hear it, you that want to go every day, each time you come before the Lord, even when the Lord has enough message to give you, you want to go home. The Bible said, just one part of the law, they listened to it three good hours and then they used the next three hours and worshipped the Lord, making how many hours? Six good hours!

14.        Sincerely, they didn’t want to go, until they were certain of Him, that they were forgiven. But each time we come here, we start at six o’clock; before eight o’clock, “Any day brother comes to the pulpit, everyday brother comes to the pulpit, we will not go that day.”

15.       Let me tell you one thing, if you are not spiritual, this little apostolic ministry may stumble you. I am not a pastor, check your Bible. If there is a man that can hold the Church from morning till the next morning, it is the Apostle, and the anointing can never leave Him because there is a Fountain supplying the water.

16.       And yet the apostle will come and tell the pastor, “Don’t weary the Church, by keeping them so long. Time yourself very well.” That is apostle Any time you finish your sermon, come down. Don’t tell stories.”

17.       And that is the truth. Any time the Holy Ghost leaves an apostle, the Church will know, the apostle will know that the message is over. That is why it is a different ministry. It is not walking by sight. It is walking by vision. Where there is no vision, the people will perish.

18.       Vision of what? Vision to discern your enemy, find their trick, beat them back. A man of God is a military man. He is always a man alone. Whatever you like, talk about him; he is not hearing that, he is not counting where he failed. He is always forgetting the past, pressing unto the mark of his high calling, lest any man will take his crown.

19.        I am looking at my crown every day. My wife won’t hinder me, my children won’t hinder me. Distance will not hinder me. I am battling daily. I will speak to some ministers here on Sunday.

20.       Verse 4.“Then stood up upon the stairs, of the Levites, Jeshua, and Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Chenani, and cried with a loud voice unto the LORD their God.”

21.       These are priests supporting them. And they lifted up their voices and cried unto the Lord. Read that particular chapter and finish it to chapter 9. See the type of confessions they made; exactly the type of confessions Daniel made.

22.       Daniel’s confession. He confessed his sins and the sins of his people: national confession. I am looking forward to a day brothers will be making national confessions. How can you, after seeing the glory of God in the camp, after seeing all the wondrous works, you still behave like your forefathers, going back to unbelief, putting God to test with your god? Just tell me! Korah and Dathan, Miriam.

23.       Somebody must be leprous here one day. I don’t know why I am saying it. Watch out. Keep on watching. We are in the spoken word ministry.  The spoken word vindication. There is the spoken word vindication.

24.       Nehemiah 13:6-14 (KJV)“But in all this time was not I at Jerusalem: for in the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes king of Babylon came I unto the king, and after certain days obtained I leave of the king:

25.       And I came to Jerusalem, and understood of the evil that Eliashib did for Tobiah, in preparing him a chamber in the courts of the house of God. And it grieved me sore: therefore I cast forth all the household stuff of Tobiah out of the chamber. Then I commanded, and they cleansed the chambers:

26.       and thither brought I again the vessels of the house of God, with the meat offering and the frankincense. And I perceived that the portions of the Levites had not been given them: for the Levites and the singers, that did the work, were fled everyone to his field. Then contended I with the rulers, and said, Why is the house of God forsaken?

27.       And I gathered them together, and set them in their place. Then brought all Judah the tithe of the corn and the new wine and the oil unto the treasuries.

28.       And I made treasurers over the treasuries, Shelemiah the priest, and Zadok the scribe, and of the Levites, Pedaiah: and next to them was Hanan the son of Zaccur, the son of Mattaniah: for they were counted faithful, and their office was to distribute unto their brethren.

29.       Remember me, O my God, concerning this, and wipe not out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God, and for the offices thereof.”

30.       You hear it now Church, when this man of God was away, a very big man that married a heathen wife approached his father the priest. He came with a suggestion: “You see the man of God has travelled now. You know, why not bring my father-in-law into the camp? After all he has been very good to us, he has been sustaining our family, giving us some money, especially this time things are hard.” Read that chapter very well.

31.        The people of Israel were facing very hard time and the people were giving them food. When Nehemiah discovered that they were using the food to bribe them, he stopped that food. A wise man.

32.       Starting from the beginning, starting from Cain, and starting from Esau; you know that Esau was an Edomite. I will speak on lineage one day; you know where you belong. If you are an Igbo man, you know where you came from. If you are an Igbo man I will tell you where you came from.

33.       You did not come from the moon. You have your position in the Bible, you have your tribe. If you are going to Canaan, you have a tribe. You are not going to settle anyhow. All of us are marching to Canaan. Don’t you know that is true?

34.       The land promised us is Canaan. Heaven is our vacation place; we will be on holiday for three and a half years. When we come back, till eternity we will be settling in Canaan forever and ever. “Thy kingdom come” will be fulfilled; you will go to your tribe, the people of Igbo land. It is strange.

35.       Watch this man; I want you to get a revelation now. The Bible said “Be angry and sin not.”

36.       Hear the revelation now. When Nehemiah came back, he discovered the evil that was done in the camp. The Bible said he was grieved in his heart. What did he do? He carried Tobiah, Sanballat, their children, their property, through the window, out! And all their herds, all their cattle, all their money, all of them out. He was cleaning the house of God, he cleaned the house, purged the house.

37.       Seven thunder men, people with heathen ideas, Pentecostals, outside! Until you come to a point where you will be angry at sin, your salvation is still questionable. Until you come to a point where you hate nothing but sin, anywhere you see sin, you declare it your enemy, your salvation is still questionable.

38.       You that are fond of romancing in sin, you may come here and shout, you are deceiving yourself. Tomorrow you go back to it. You are still having delight in committing sin. Your salvation is till questionable! Is it not Bible?

39.       Jesus was angry at sin. He committed no sin. He used cane on them, flushed them out. If you are now being asked, place Jesus and a Reverend father—a very fine Jew, his apron, walking holy, holy, holy with the book of the law and you see the man who said he came from God, becoming violent, picking the cane, canning everybody like that—who will you say has the Holy Ghost?

40.        You will say it is the Jew (father) because he is holy in appearance, using hand, blessing small children, erecting block rosary, stopping the children from knowing God.

41.       You can never go to heaven until you become violent in the things of God, until your eyes become red against sin that if your wife commits sin, you rebuke her.

42.       When blind pastors allow their women to continue in sin, every other women pattern themselves after the woman, pastor’s wife. After all, the pastor is seeing the wife. And when they marry, they take their wives to the pastor’s wife to train, and the woman will be hardened with stubborn spirit.

43.       Be very careful Church. Please, see this man called Nehemiah, a man called of God. He called on all Israelites to separate. We are making our wrongs right here this moment.

44.       Enough is enough. We don’t want the Lord to hold us guilty again. We want to appear before Him simply to confess our sins and those of our forefathers. Men that are old in the message, grey-haired men in the message. And they are lost yet they do not know, claiming they are apostles in the Lord: “The Lord revealed, the Lord revealed.”

45.       They are all liars and no liar will inherit the kingdom of God. Mind what is saying something in your heart. “The Lord laid in my heart.” The Lord heard it.

46.       We are reading from Nehemiah 13 still. Read up to verse 14, you will see how this man reacted and how the camp was cleansed. Yet few people devised another plan. And the people were vigilant.

47.       How can you speak against the move of the Holy Ghost and then come and identify with us? We will never allow you to seat down in our midst. Holy Ghost will never give you rest here, He is not for you, until you make it right.

48.       You must be circumcised, and then be filled, the same way we were filled and then you became a partaker. Not when you stray away, hundred days, you are in your house. When others are loosing demons, you are binding them; when we are binding, you are loosing.

49.       Be very careful you that absent yourselves from fellowship. Have you not read the Bible? Do not absent yourselves from the fellowship of the saints as is the habit of some in Babylon, writing many letters everywhere, speaking blasphemy against the Church in your letters, not knowing it that you are a saboteur.

50.       Repent! If you must testify of anything, testify of what the Lord is doing in your camp. No more, no less. Not what a man is doing lest you die. If you want to boast, boast of what the Lord is doing in your life, in the life of your brother, in the life of your sister. Always finding faults. You are blind. Let us conclude.

51.       Verse 23-31 (KJV)“In those days also saw I Jews that had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, and of Moab: And their children spake half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews' language, but according to the language of each people.”

52.       How can an adulterous son speak the language of the rightful son? How can Cain speak the language of Abel? It is impossible! He may speak the truth of his mother.

53.       You see the danger of marrying in strange land. Brethren, the Lord is talking to this Church. If you are here, he that is often reproved but hardeneth his heart will meet sudden destruction and without mercy. They went and married strange women and they produced children. 

54.       They started behaving differently, differently in the camp. Let me tell you. If you are a father here, and you have a son that is cursing you, he is not a son. If you are a mother here and you have a son that is fighting you, he is not your son.

55.       If you marry from a strange land, what you are reaping now is what you are going to reap. You may be here thinking that it because you are here that we are saying it. The Lord when He was giving me this message, Amen, you were not there. The Lord revealed it.

56.       When He revealed it, He included you. It is coming out daily so that you will hear it from me and not from any man, so that when you start reaping the fruit, you will not blame anybody. You will blame yourself for your stubborn child.

57.       The Bible said, the Prophets of old, all kings, they waited patiently to see things you are seeing, to hear the things you are hearing but they could not see and hear. Blessed are you for hearing all these things and seeing all these miracles in our midst. And yet, when you hear the truth, instead of repenting, you harden your heart and run away.

58.       There must be somebody that you preach to. He will believe. Before you know it, he will be behaving the way you are behaving. Birds of the same feather flock together. Two cannot walk together except they agree.

59.       “And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by God, saying, Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters unto your sons, or for yourselves. Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things?

60.       Yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin. Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives?

61.        And one of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib the high priest, was son in law to Sanballat the Horonite: therefore I chased him from me. Remember them, O my God, because they have defiled the priesthood, and the covenant of the priesthood, and of the Levites.

62.       Thus cleansed I them from all strangers, and appointed the wards of the priests and the Levites, everyone in his business; And for the wood offering, at times appointed, and for the first fruits. Remember me, O my God, for good.” Amen.
