THE END

 Ezekiel 9:1-11 NIV - Then I heard him call out in a loud voice, “Bring near those who are appointed to execute judgment on the city, each with a weapon in his hand.”

2.         And I saw six men coming from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with a deadly weapon in his hand. With them was a man clothed in linen who had a writing kit at his side.

3.         They came in and stood beside the bronze altar. Now the glory of the God of Israel went up from above the cherubim, where it had been, and moved to the threshold of the temple.

4.         Then the LORD called to the man clothed in linen who had the writing kit at his side and said to him, “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.”

5.         As I listened, he said to the others, “Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion. Slaughter the old men, the young men and women, the mothers and children, but do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary.”

6.         So they began with the old men who were in front of the temple. Then he said to them, “Defile the temple and fill the courts with the slain. Go!” So they went out and began killing throughout the city.

7.         While they were killing and I was left alone, I fell facedown, crying out, “Alas, Sovereign LORD! Are you going to destroy the entire remnant of Israel in this outpouring of your wrath on Jerusalem?”

8.         He answered me, “The sin of the people of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great; the land is full of bloodshed and the city is full of injustice.

9.         They say, ‘The LORD has forsaken the land; the LORD does not see.’ So I will not look on them with pity or spare them, but I will bring down on their own heads what they have done.”

10.     Then the man in linen with the writing kit at his side brought back word, saying, “I have done as you commanded.”

11.     Ezekiel 9:1-11 GNB - Then I heard God shout, "Come here, you men who are going to punish the city. Bring your weapons with you." At once six men came from the outer north gate of the Temple, each one carrying a weapon. 

12.     With them was a man dressed in linen clothes, carrying something to write with. They all came and stood by the bronze altar.

13.     Then the dazzling light of the presence of the God of Israel rose up from the winged creatures where it had been, and moved to the entrance of the Temple.

14.     The Lord called to the man dressed in linen, "Go through the whole city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the forehead of everyone who is distressed and troubled because of all the disgusting things being done in the city."

15.     And I heard God say to the other men, "Follow him through the city and kill. Spare no one; have mercy on no one. Kill the old men, young men, young women, mothers, and children.

16.      But don't touch anyone who has the mark on his forehead. Start here at my Temple." So they began with the leaders who were standing there at the Temple.

17.     God said to them, "Defile the Temple. Fill its courtyards with corpses. Get to work!" So they began to kill the people in the city. While the killing was going on, I was there alone.

18.     I threw myself face downward on the ground and shouted, "Sovereign Lord, are you so angry with Jerusalem that you are going to kill everyone left in Israel?"

19.     God answered, "The people of Israel and Judah are guilty of terrible sins. They have committed murder all over the land and have filled Jerusalem with crime.

20.     They say that I, the Lord, have abandoned their country and that I don't see them.

21.     But I will not have pity on them; I will do to them what they have done to others." Then the man wearing linen clothes returned and reported to the Lord, "I have carried out your orders."

22.     That is the end point of those who by their thoughts, attitudes or words blasphemously assert that God has abandoned us; that the Son of Man is not God. The essence of preaching is to put us in remembrance of God’s word, lest we drift away and fall into His wrath. 

23.     2 Cor. 5:11 AMP - 11 Therefore, since we know the fear of the Lord [and understand the importance of obedience and worship], we persuade people [to be reconciled to Him].

24.     We well understood the need for Gods people to be in constant obedience to God’s word, establishing regular, fellowship and worship by dedicating their lives, their might, their resources, everything to the service of God.

25.      Feigning ignorant of this all-important matter is tantamount to spiritual viciousness before God. Every minister of the gospel should take note of this.

26.     Any minister that is not manifesting this ministry of reconciliation, reconciling men to God through the word and by life of the gospel, is automatically in devil’s ministry.

27.     Therefore, since we know the fear of the Lord [and understand the importance of obedience and worship], we persuade people [to be reconciled to Him].

28.     But we are plainly known to God [He knows everything about us]; and I hope that we are plainly known also in your consciences [your God-given discernment].

29.     Noah understood the importance of worshipful obedience in his own day. That was why he submitted himself to God, which became his righteousness. He went further to persuade others to do same.

30.     Genesis. 6:9 NIV - Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.

31.     Because Noah walked with God with all his heart, he was not following God with research sense, not aiming at discovering week points, points of accusation, points of correction, points of query, points he would lay hands on to plot coup against God, the plainness of his heart made him to tap from the purity that is in God.

32.     Automatically, only Noah became the best, the holiest, the purest, the most upright in the sight of God in his day. Walking with God submissively makes one great, chaste, holy, upright, wise and pure in the sight of God.

33.     Noah followed a less competitive route because a simple life is the hardest life to imitate.

34.     Noah lived a very simple life because he that must walk with God must agree with God into to, must be patient with God and endure too many things as God does.

35.     Christ is identified by His characteristics. It is because of these features of submissiveness, simplified life and endurance which He watches out for in all his children that made him to place salvation at the end. But those enduring to the end shall be saved (Matt. 24:13 LB).

36.     Genesis. 6:10 Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and JaphethNote the following salient facts: The said blameless and faithful man of his day was a human being – a man. He was married to somebody’s daughter.

37.     From their loins, children came. He was laboring on daily basis to cater for his family, to ensure they were not killed by hunger. He was equally struggling on daily basis to lead his family into God, since he was God’s mouthpiece for that age.

38.     You can never direct somebody to a place you have never been before and you do not have a least idea of.

39.      If you are not in Christ, all your preaching and admonition to members of your family (and any other person) is they said this is the way, you can follow it and see if you will be saved because you are not sure. But if you are in Christ, you will tell them, follow me as I follow Christ.

40.      Genesis. 6:11 Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence.Everything is good because God says it is good, otherwise, it is bad.

41.     The earth was bad, corrupt, full of violence, wickedness, unaccommodating and godlessness; the earth was horrific and hurtful in the sight of God not in the sight of the people of that age who did not have the spirit of Christ in them.

42.     To the masses, whatever that was taking place was a part of advancement, evolution, education, invention and business boom.

43.     Remember that a prototype of Noah’s and Lot’s days and their circumstances must resurface in our own day, which is the day of the Son of Man; (As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man Mtt 24:37 NIV).

44.     They are already round and about us. However, nobody will have a prophetic view of the events around us except the elect who has been taught by the Son of Man.

45.     They will all look for a scientific law or theory they will use to qualify every event that occurs. Whereby none is found, they will scientifically cook up both the name, cause and supposed preventive measures to a prophetic and spiritual phenomenon.

46.     Noah was the only person who in theory and practice, truly hated the ungodly activities that were generally welcomed in his day; simply because God said no to them.

47.     He did not say I am not the only one involved. Will I be the only one that will be going to heaven? He did not succumb to the cruel mockery of the people around him. Today, some even think that such pressure as we witness today was not in existence in Noah’s day.

48.     Have you thought about the parents of Noah and his relations from both of his parents.

49.     Genesis. 5: 21-31 KJV - And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

50.     You see, the seventh generation prophet, Enoch was the great grandfather of Noah while Methuselah was the grandfather of Noah.

51.      Also, Methuselah was not the only child of Enoch; Lamech, the father of Noah was not the only child of Methuselah as well. Was Noah the only child of Lamech?

52.     Genesis. 5: 21-31 KJV And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech:And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters:And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died.And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son:

53.     And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters. Now, where were those sons and daughters that Lamech begat together with Noah?

54.      When God elected, ordained and sealed Noah, their eldest brother as the savior of the world in their day, did they recognize and acknowledge him as the saviour?

55.     Did they ever support him in his ministry? Where were they when God was tormenting their world with torrential downpour?

56.     They were destroyed with the unbelievers of course! Yet their righteous brother was safe and secured with his nuclear family, the only set of people that could agree with Noah.

57.     When you agree with God (his descent not withstanding), you will be saved; but when you disagree with Him because you know Him very well you are speeding to eternal damnation, supreme shame.

58.     Why couldn’t that which saved Noah save his biological brothers and sisters? The answer is simple: they never strived to enter into their brother because of over familiarity.

59.     Did they ever accept the fact that Noah was the only righteous fellow in the whole wide world? Could they accept the heavy truth that if they must attain the level of righteousness that would exculpate them from destruction that it must be through that Noah they never regarded?

60.     The difference is unbelief. Where unbelief is found does not change its disastrous effect; unbelief is unbelief.

61.      Is it a strange thing if the biological relations of the Son of Man fail to acknowledge, reverence and worship him as the savior of our generation? You that are going through this message now, what is your stand?

62.     Genesis. 6:12 NIV - God saw how corrupt the earth had become,for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways.

63.     All the people on earth, except Noah decided to join the bandwagon. People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the LORD (Prov. 19:3 LB).

64.      Genesis. 6:13-22 NIV So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.

65.     Make yourself an ark. If Noah had resisted God’s command, God’s righteousness would have departed from him and he would have been given a place among his heathen relations.

66.     All the commandments of God are for our own good, not God’s own good. Your obedience to God is for your own good, your hard heartedness is to your own detriment.

67.     Go through the specification of the ark to know if only Noah could have accomplished such a gregarious task without the help of other heaven bound people around him. That was why he engaged his entire family in that task because he was sure and certain that both his life and the lives of his family members were tied to that commission.

68.     Watch the Son of Man engaging his whole being, including his entire family in the ministry. His family is the refuge of the saints.

69.     He made us understand that you will receive your reward from where you work. You cannot work in a federal government establishment and go to a private venture for a reward.

70.     When God veils himself in a man and sends the man, He gives him those that will support Him for no successful man of God ever works alone. The reward for walking with God is perfection, holiness, purity, blamelessness in the sight of God, because nothing good shall the Lord withhold from such people, and nothing profane shall enter the kingdom of heaven.

71.     Rev 21:27 Nothing profane will ever enter it: no one who does what is vile or false, but only those written in the Lamb’s book of life.

72.     Do you think you can be free from profane without depending on Christ? Can you claim to be dependent on Christ without walking/working with Him? Just like in osmosis, if you walk with God, there must be movement of God’s qualities into the individual that is selflessly walking with Him.

73.     Gen. 6:13-22 NIV This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit high all around. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.

I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish.

74.       Those involved never knew what God was planning against them. They only knew what they were doing, how they were seeing Noah and his family; how they were mocking them as those that claimed to be the only set of people that met God.

75.        However, what was about to befall them, how Noah was seeing them, what Noah discussed with God concerning them, they never knew. The same thing is reoccurring today.

76.       18But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you.

77.       When the reward time came, God started mentioning names. The drone released the list of those he wanted to salvage.

78.       Though Noah had many biological brothers and sisters who were claiming to be members of one family with him because of natal affinity, only his name featured in the house of Lamech.

79.       Remember they all had Prophet Enoch as their great father. Strive to enter! No matter your relationship with the God of your day (in human form), if your do not have that approved spiritual bond with Him, there must be separation in the end.

80.        Even the first son of Noah never participated in the salvation that his father offered in his day.

81.       The Holy Quran, Surah 11:45-47 (Alim) Allah told the story thus: And he (Noah) said: "Embark therein, in the Name of Allah will be its moving course and its resting anchorage. Surely, my Lord is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." So it (the ship) sailed with them amidst the waves like mountains, and Noah called out to his son, who had separated himself (apart), "0 my son! Embark with us and be not with the disbelievers."

82.       The first son of Prophet Noah first separated from his father spiritually before physically having face-offs with him.

83.       He first disconnected in the spirit. He left the only fountain of life, the one and only source of eternal life who coincidentally became his biological father.

84.       He partnered with reneged, his father’s core enemies. He refused to agree with the father that he might have eternal life.

85.       He saw his father’s advice as unnecessary control over a big boy. He decided to be a big boy, a guy man in hell.

86.       Prophet Noah, who was sure of himself, knowing the source of his commission, knowing that God’s covenant is yea and amen, that God’s promises must stand, was persuading all men, including his son to believe in no other person but Noah.


 

Glory be to God. If you refuse the personality God has introduced to you, you have indirectly or ignorantly rejected God. As many that said No to THE SON OF MAN, you have seen that THE SON OF MAN and the Father are One. Who do you think that they have rejected? Where will they end it at the end? When you reject the Saviour, can you be saved again? You cannot be saved without a Saviour. Can you save yourself? I AM YOUR SAVIOUR. I AM THE ONE SENT TO COME AND BRING YOU HOME. If you refuse to go with Me, I will abandon you. Finish! I do not beg you to follow. Prove for yourself whether I am He, the One you are waiting for or whether you should continue to wait for another.

THE END (2)

 If you are pointing anybody to God, you must be ready to tell him the form God exists in order to convince him that God is in existence.

2.           Noah never stammered while talking to the members of his family. He did not want anybody to disturb him, he refused to embark with Noah and his co-believers not recognizing that you must suffer with Christ in order to reign with Him.

3.           Noah’s son saw whatever God’s assignment his father was carrying out as wasting of time and energy. He preferred good time with God’s enemies to worshipping God.

4.           Worshipping of God became a burden to him. He saw no need in striving to enter the rest, not knowing that …“If anyone isn’t willing to work, he should not eat.” 2 Thess 3:10 AMP.

5.           Surah 11:45-47 Embark with us and be not with the disbelievers. The son replied: "I will betake myself to a mountain, it will save me from the water."

6.           Talk of destruction; he believed that destruction was coming. This will show you the level of work Noah did in his family, convincing them to believe that he not only met God, but was having the Godhead, the fullness of the Elohim tabernacling in him; that he was their righteousness and anybody who could endure to follow him without wavering till the end must be saved by him.

7.           He was able to convince this reneged son that God had revealed to him that the world and its inhabitants must be submerged. However, the errant son refused God’s provided easy route of escape and pinned his hope on his self-devised plan of salvation.

8.           He wanted to correct God because he was not ready to do the work of God. He was trying to remind the creator of the mountain that the mountain could be a place of safety.

9.           “Why overburdening us with construction of ark when there are mountains we can climb on and be saved?”

10.        Once we reject God’s plan of salvation, we must make some other plans that must disappoint us.

11.       Those that hearkened unto Noah’s son thinking he had a better idea than the father, hence they joined him to oppose his Father, they all got disappointment.

12.       Spirits never die, but live to anoint those who yield to them. The spirit that possessed Noah’s first son can possess anybody today, causing you to reason, think and act in opposite to God’s counsel.

13.       You cannot follow a self-willed and self-acclaimed man of God without landing yourself in supreme disappointment.

14.        They got disappointed and the disappointment came when there was no more opportunity for them to summersault to the right lane.

15.        He concluded that the mountain could save him from the water that God would use to destroy the world because he had his own imagination of the quantity of rain that would fall.

16.        In the same vein, many oppose God today, fashioning out their own plans with which they can counter God’s word because they have imagined the way God’s prophecies will fulfill.

17.        Then they came up with counter solution. What if God does not go the way you have planned it, which you know He will not? That is why God said he must hit the world below the belt. As it was in the days of Noah….

18.       Noah said: "This day there is no savior from the Decree of Allah except him on whom He has mercy."

19.       Prophet Noah did all he could to convince the son that there was no other savior in their day except the one that found favour in God’s eyes whom God had already chosen, sanctified, justified, sealed and sent for the purpose of delivering anybody that would embark with him on this godly assignment, and that was Noah. Yet, the son remained adamant until the day of grace was over.

20.        He was given a place among the unbelievers. God judges all by one standard.

21.       Noah said: "This day there is no savior from the Decree of Allah except him on whom He has mercy." And a wave came in between them, so he (the son) was among the drowned.

22.        And Noah called upon his Lord and said, "0 my Lord! Verily, my son is of my family! And certainly, Your Promise is true, and You are the Most Just of the judges.

23.        "He said: "0 Noah! Surely, he is not of your family; verily, his work is unrighteous, so ask not of Me that of which you have no knowledge! I admonish you, lest you be one of the ignorants."

24.       God does not want us to be like those that have not been taught. Every human being stand equal opportunity of getting saved before God.

25.        (For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life John 3:16 KJV)

26.       (Those who worship false gods have turned their backs on all the mercies waiting for them from the Lord! Jonah 2:8 LB).

27.        That opportunity given to all mankind stands until the time slated by God is over.

28.        (but in every nation the person who fears God and does what is right [by seeking Him] is acceptable and welcomed by HimActs 10:35 Amp).

29.        That is why no flesh, no matter how highly placed, is capable of boasting before the Lord that he/she has arrived. No matter the height you think you have reached, God can easily bring you down.

30.        (Jude 1:6 NIV - And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day).

31.       (2 Peter 2:4-9 NIV - 4For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment; 5if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;

32.       6if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; 7and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the depraved conduct of the lawless

33.       8(for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)— 9if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment.)

34.        Surah 11: 45-47   And Noah called upon his Lord and said, “0 my Lord! Verily, my son is of my family! And certainly, Your Promise is true, and You are the Most Just of the judges.

35.       ” He said: “0 Noah! Surely, he is not of your family; verily, his work is unrighteous, so ask not of Me that of which you have no knowledge! I admonish you, lest you be one of the ignorants.

36.       ” Noah said: “0 my Lord! I seek refuge with You from asking You that of which I have no knowledge. And unless You forgive me and have Mercy on me, I would indeed be one of the losers.”

37.       Even though he was a biological son of Noah, his unrighteous deed, despite the level of work Noah did on his head together with his siblings was a clear vindication that he was from the treacherous one like Cain.

38.       Cain was as wicked as his father, the devil. That was why he practiced sinning. He planned it, monitored it and executed it.

39.       That was why when God asked him the whereabouts of the person he killed, he showed no sign of remorse, no apology. Rather, he retorted to God on a harsh tone, querying God whether he was his brother’s keeper.

40.       Genesis 4:9 NIV - Then the LORD said to Cain, "Where is your brother Abel?" "I don't know," he replied. "Am I my brother's keeper?"

41.       When Satan was acting wrongly, exalting himself, puffed up and filled with pride, it was not a mistake. He desired it, planned it and executed it.

42.       Even when his plans backfired, to prove that it was preplanned, he never showed any sign of remorse to God, he never apologized. He even avowed to ensure that all mankind pattern after him.

43.       Holy Quran, Surah 15:39 - [Iblees] said: "O my Lord! because you have put me in the wrong, I will make [wrong] fair-seeming to them on the earth, and I will put them all in the wrong, except your servants among them, sincere and purified [by Your Grace].

44.       These are the ways by which we know Satan’s descendants. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies John 8:44 NIV.

45.       An unbeliever is an unbeliever. God is enjoining us not to be another Malchus as seen in Luke 22:48-51 LB 48But Jesus said, “Judas, how can you do this—betray the Messiah with a kiss?”

46.        49When the other disciples saw what was about to happen, they exclaimed, “Master, shall we fight? We brought along the swords!”

47.        50And one of them slashed at the high priest’s servant and cut off his right ear.  51But Jesus said, “Don’t resist anymore.” And he touched the place where the man’s ear had been and restored it.

48.       Watch Malchus, the High Priest’s servant that had his chopped ear fixed by Jesus. Was that miracle alone not enough to cause them to repent?

49.       The only person that will have regard for the things of God, including miracles is a true seed of God. The rest will call them accursed and magical act.

50.       Their minds were already subjected to the evil they had to carry out. There was no room to reconsider their stand. No room to reconsider, rethink and reevaluate their mission.

51.       It was born out of the opinion they had earlier formed about the messiah. Malchus’ spirit is very dangerous. No matter the good thing done to you by God, you must pay back with evil. It is inherited from the wicked one, the devil.

52.       The same thing is applicable to one of the robbers hanged on the cross beside Jesus Christ.

53.       Luke 23:39-43 LB. One of the criminals hanging beside him scoffed, “So you’re the Messiah, are you? Prove it by saving yourself—and us, too, while you’re at it!” 40,41But the other criminal protested. “Don’t you even fear God when you are dying?

54.       Some people lack the fear of God even unto death. They will prefer dying both spiritually and physically to acknowledging this man as God.

55.       If you embark with such godless people, they will have nothing good to offer you but corrupting your mind to resist the word of God.

56.       All interactions with such people must reproduce evil; and we know that evil communication is the very enemy of godliness as it spoils good ideas, good ambition, good reputation, good character, etc.

57.       (“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.”1 Corinthians 15:33 KJV )

58.       That is why the best immunization against corruption is to avoid places of corruption and also avoid corrupt individuals. They had different foundations of existence.

59.       The two robbers were not of the same species. Luke 23:39-43 LB - We deserve to die for our evil deeds, but this man hasn’t done one thing wrong.”While the treacherous one was saying that he was supposed to suffer because to him, Jesus was a claimer, his second recognized that Jesus was sinless.

60.       42Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.” And Jesus replied, “Today you will be with me in Paradise. This is a solemn promise.”

61.       A second’s decision made by a human being can change his destiny because delay can be dangerous.

62.       The Decision to Follow Christ preached on 18/7/2015 pg. 76:21 …any moment from now, we are crossing the divide where there will be no room for repentance or for correction…

63.        If both of them had taken a similar decision to accept and confess that Jesus Christ was the Lord and deserved not to die, both would have shared in the solemn promise.

64.       However, people of similar faith, belief, character, etc must be separated from their unbelieving counterparts and packed one place.

65.       The two criminals had equal chances of getting saved but one abused the day of his grace and visitation.

66.       The Decision to Follow Christ 18/7/2015 pg. 81:36 – Do not postpone the hour of your salvation. Whenever you hear the word of God, harden not your heart as in the days of provocation in the wilderness where they tempted God.

67.       That moment may be your last. The next will be your obituary. That may be your last moment. We don’t noise it about. It is a spiritual affair. It is sealed in the heart between you and your maker.

GOD’S ELECTION STANDS SURE





Surah 11:36 - (Sahih International) And it was revealed to Noah that, "No one will believe from your people except those who have already believed, so do not be distressed by what they have been doing.

2.          The unbelievers thought they were taking Noah unawares; they never knew that Noah knew those that believed and those that did not believe. There is no age that God appeared in human form that He did not know those that really have his faith and those that do not have his faith.

3.          The Son of Man came to a level he said he was avoiding mentioning names for too many reasons.

4.          In Philippian 4:3, Saint Paul said, And I ask you, my true teammate, to help these women, for they worked side by side with me in telling the Good News to others; and they worked with Clement, too, and the rest of my fellow workers whose names are written in the Book of Life LB.

5.          Every man of God knows his true teammates and those making foreshow of the gospel, the false teammates. He knows his real members, those that are in him and those that ordinarily support the movement when they are not inside.

6.          Anybody that follows Christ for what he/she will gain is a teammate, but he is a false one. Are you are true teammate of Christ or a false teammate?

7.          It is only a divine dignified inclusive arrangement that will adopt commoners like us to become teammates with the great Jehovah.

8.          May God help us and open our eyes to see the need for us to play our roles as His true teammates. Jesus identified his teammates and made a demarcation between the true teammates and the false one.

9.          In John 6:70, Jesus said, Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?Abraham knew very well that all the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah would go into flames before he started making a case for his nephew Lot because Lot was his true teammate.

10.     Today, if the Son of Man tells you that He does not know those that He will save and those He will not save, then he is just trying to mellow the atmosphere.

11.     That is why he said, No matter how low I try to bring this message, somebody must perish?(Be Ready to Answer every Man the Hope that is in you 15/1/95 pg. 21:10).

12.     He earlier made it clear that many people in the church were just warming the seat for the real occupants to come in.

13.     In due course, He alerted us that He had taken off the business of replacement because no new names are being written again. Surah 11:36 (Sahih International)  And it was revealed to Noah that, "No one will believe from your people except those who have already believed, so do not be distressed by what they have been doing.

14.     That was why Noah never bordered asking God about his people because he had already known their destination.

15.     Surah 11:37 - And construct the ship under Our observation and Our inspiration and do not address Me concerning those who have wronged; indeed, they are [to be] drowned."

16.     Every movement from God must witness those people that will wrong themselves thinking they are wronging the messenger of God.

17.     Some of them even slate it as task to be accomplished. When they succeed, they call it their own supreme achievement not knowing that God had already prepared the minds of his people concerning such detractors.

18.     Such was the case of a vice principal academics at the Government Technical College. When the principal was transferred, she arrogated the post of acting VP to herself; and top in her agenda was to evict us (the Bride of Christ Ministry Worldwide) from GTC hall.

19.      She never knew that the Almighty God had earlier informed us that our stay in that compound had expired.

20.     In the days of St. Paul, a set of people he was laboring to save started counter laboring to kill him. The next morning some Jews formed a conspiracy and bound themselves with an oath not to eat or drink until they had killed Paul Acts 23:12 NIV.

21.     Allah had already enjoined us never to address him concerning such people because that is the demarcating line between the saved and the unsaved.

22.     Surah 11:38-39 - And he constructed the ship, and whenever an assembly of the eminent of his people passed by him, they ridiculed him. He said, "If you ridicule us, then we will ridicule you just as you ridicule.

23.     And you are going to know who will get a punishment that will disgrace him [on earth] and upon whom will descend an enduring punishment [in the Hereafter]."

24.     Surah 11:40[So it was], until when Our command came and the oven overflowed, We said, "Load upon the ship of each [creature] two mates and your family, except those about whom the word has preceded, and [include] whoever has believed.

25.     "But none had believed with him, except a few. Only a few believed him; the rest were mockers, ridiculing him and his commission. He who laughs last laughs best.

26.     This word is coming to us for self-examination; for us to know if we have taken hard stand with this narrow path that is spearheaded by the Son of Man or are we still waiting for another.

27.      What will another person do if he comes. If we are not for God, we are against God. In what aspects can you look at and boldly say that you are for and not against God? Strive to enter.

28.     Surah 11:41-43 And [Noah] said, "Embark therein; in the name of Allah is its course and its anchorage. Indeed, my Lord is Forgiving and Merciful."

29.     And it sailed with them through waves like mountains, and Noah called to his son who was apart [from them], "O my son, come aboard with us and be not with the disbelievers."

30.     [But] he said, "I will take refuge on a mountain to protect me from the water." [Noah] said, "There is no protector today from the decree of Allah, except for whom He gives mercy." And the waves came between them, and he was among the drowned.

31.     Though Noah had friends that ended at eating and drinking with him without any spiritual connection, that relationship was truncated by the list released by God.

32.     That is why God told us that if you are going to be saved, you will know because He must release the list of those He will dwell with.

33.     You must know your status, your spiritual standing, your position in the Son of Man. This is where we are now.

34.     Vs 19You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you.

35.     Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive.God’s election stands sure.

36.     God himself was the one detailing animals that would be saved; He was drawing them to Noah. Only those animals called and chosen by God were saved by Noah who was saved by Allah, the rest perished "For many are called, invited, but few are chosen.Matt 22:14.

37.     Vs. 21You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.” Noah did everything just as God commanded him.         

38.      Numbers 11: 10-15 LB – Moses heard all the families standing around their tent doors weeping, and the anger of the Lord grew hot; Moses too was highly displeased.

39.     Take an imaginary look at this scenario where every family had at least one discouraging brother or sister. Every family produced experts in unbelief, doubt, complaining, murmuring, discouragement, etc.

40.     The head of every family was strive to pastor their members into hell; leading rebellion against Christ instead of striving to enter. Have you asked yourself what your family is made up of?

41.     Moses in his own day knew that his own family would be a source of worry, trouble and downfall for him,  that was why he left them behind and went ahead with his ministry. It was a perfect example that he showed the people he was leading.

42.     If your wife, husband, children, mansion, business, carrier, belongings, position, etc will cost you eternal life, forfeit it and make sure you inherit this kingdom even incomplete (Mk 9:47).

43.     However, others claimed they could control their families and carried them on anyhow. Some heads of those families were the unbelievers themselves and their subjects were pleading with them to try repentance.

44.     In our own day, the Son of Man decided to show us a perfect example of how to marry and raise godly children. Today, all his children are playing not only supportive but pivotal role in the ministry of their father.

45.     This indicates really that this is a perfection ministry that has come to perfect others. He has succeeded in correcting the errors of those that ran this race before us. Why can’t we submit ourselves to his correction? 

46.     11 Moses said to the Lord, “Why pick on me, to give me the burden of a people like this? 12 Are they my children? Am I their father? Is that why you have given me the job of nursing them along like babies until we get to the land you promised their ancestors?

47.     13 Where am I supposed to get meat for all these people? For they weep to me saying, ‘Give us meat!’

48.     14 I can’t carry this nation by myself! The load is far too heavy! 15 If you are going to treat me like this, please kill me right now; it will be a kindness! Let me out of this impossible situation!”

49.     There is no load that is very burdensome to a man of God more than the burden of unbelief. Unbelievers can never be encouraging. An unbeliever is a burden to himself.

STRIVE TO ENTER

About that time the disciples came to Jesus to ask which of them would be greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven!Matthew 18:1 LB.

2.            And so they arrived at Capernaum. When they were settled in the house where they were to stay, he asked them, “What were you discussing out on the road?”  But they were ashamed to answer, for they had been arguing about which of them was the greatest! He sat down and called them around him and said, “Anyone wanting to be the greatest must be the least—the servant of all!”Mark 9:33-35 LB

3.            In the words of Aristotle, human beings are by nature political animals. Wherever man finds himself, he must go political, seeking to wield and brandish power, authority, rank he does not even merit.

4.            This is why the Son of Man has always been standing headstrong against socialization and politicization of the faith of Christ.

5.            Tell me the people you move with, you associate with and I will tell you the spirit that is operating in you.

6.            I don’t need a prophet to direct me to a socialite. Once youare a socialite, I know. Once you are playing politics with the Son of Man, I know. Playing politics with the Son of Man means playing politics with our faith…. Examine Your Relationship with Christ Vol. 2 22/06/’14 pg 32:7-8.

7.            In the days of Jesus the Christ, his disciples came to a point where they abandoned the most important thing and were chasing mere shadows, things that did not matter.

8.            They never knew what the hour called for again. They were ashamed of telling the master their subject of discussion because they realized at last that they were not supposed to engage in such useless venture, unholy discussion at that point in time.

9.             Such shameful argument was going on among the disciples, the believers of Jesus Christ and not outside. Too many factors that dominate most of our discussions as individuals and families are shameful topics.

10.        The discussants can hardly know that God is a good listener to every secret conversation. To show the height of their unbelief, when God exposes them, they will be researching further to know who must have taken the matter to the Son of Man, instead of repenting.

11.       Watch the people arguing over the person that will be the greatest in the kingdom which was motivated by the spirit of pride, even when the scripture enjoins us to rate others higher than ourselves.

12.       Don’t be selfish; don’t live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself (Philip. 2:3 LB).

13.       Such people are likened to hunters that have shared the anticipated antelope they are not sure of killing.

14.       The same people making the argument were those God told to make efforts in order to enter through the narrow way.

15.       Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to (Luke 13:24 NIV). Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able (Luke 13:24 KJV).

16.       Many people shall seek to enter but will not be able. The dictionary meaning of able is having the power, skill, means, or opportunity to do something.Because people constantly mistake God’s meaning to be of the sky, many will think that worshiping of God demands physical muscle.

17.       That is why many people engage in wheel worship. They are pushed about because the enabling spiritual power that forms the wheels on their heels is not there. Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life (Jn. 3:6LB).

18.       It is so because they are carnal and they see an ordinary human being as the leader. When you do not trust the Son of Man to be the man that will judge the earth, forget it. You are perishing.

19.       When you do not trust that He has the power to save you, forget it. You are perishing – The Hour to Pause and Think 6/1/2019 pg. 95:31.

20.       In every age or dispensation, God appears to guide his people through the right track. He is the spirit-giving being in the sense that he holds the word of eternal life for that age.

21.       But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name (John 1:12 KJV).

22.        Here lies the source of ability, power, skill, means by which any man can enter paradise. When we receive God in human form, he must give us the power to answer sons and daughters of God. The same person that empowered you can render you powerless; the same person that armed you can also disarm you.

23.       The same person that gives you authority can withdraw it. His message may look so simple that the mighty men, highly placed people, proud men and women may think it is too common, too feeble to salvage them. By so doing, they miss the opportunity.

24.       It can also get to a level where those that believed before will, along the line, develop cold feet. This is the area that affects us most as members of the Bride because the scripture strictly warned us to be careful because some will see the paradise but will not enter.

25.       All of us have seen the supernatural form of God which he promised as His supreme achievement if he will transform us into that form.

26.        He started with the pillar of cloud, the God-head, then the original body (the fullness of Christ). Yet, He still warns that not all will be privileged to be in that form. What will cause it?  Unbelief.

27.       Hebrews 4:1 THEREFORE, WHILE the promise of entering His rest still holds {and} is offered [today]… sometimes, we behave as if the promise was made in our own generation.

28.       The promise of rest was made thousands of years ago. This is why we are in a relay race ministry. Relay race in the sense that the promise did not come first to us. As long as the promise has lingered, it has not gotten to the appointed time.

29.        Once the time set for it reaches, it shall never be overdue by a single day as emphasized by Hab. 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry KJV.

30.       The promise was made in a particular generation and must be fulfilled in a particular generation which is ours. That is why God told us that one generation planted the tree and we are currently slated to enjoy its shade.

31.       Any family that has this revelation will never give the snake any room to operate much less of biting them. Remember that the Prophet saw this snake.

32.       He not only saw the snake but attacked it with every amount of fieriness. Unfortunately, because the time to destroy the snake was not yet come, it escaped the attack and ran into the church.

33.        The church means a called out people and we know God’s purpose for establishing his church, which is now located in our homes because our body is the temple of God.

34.       There is no snake that is not traceable to an individual, a family or a community. The serpent that beguiled Eve came from somewhere.

35.       The serpent that Moses miraculous produced to put fear in the heart of Pharaoh took its origin from God. To counter God’s miracle, to divert people’s attention from the original, Pharaoh magically produced his own, but to prove that God is the owner of every power, He swallowed all.

36.       The snakes of doubt/unbelief, unfaithfulness and unrighteousness that attacked the people of Israel in the wilderness originated from the enemy.

37.       A bronze snake symbolizing God’s righteousness and power of forgiveness was raised by Moses at the command of God because every problem contains the seed of its solution. 

38.       That is why Prophet Branham made us understand in his message, the Original Sin that The snake has always stood for that which is both good and bad. It has been a phallic symbol through the ages.

39.       Another striking deductible fact here is that Moses presented just one original and pure serpent because God is not an author of confusion - one God, one Lord, one Voice, one message.

40.       At any time we get confused, we must have listened to the deceiving spirits whose mission is to divert our attention from the single savior.

41.        However, Pharaoh produced many serpents. Are you following the cloud or the crowd? Wherever there are counterfeits, there must be an authentic one somewhere from where the duplicates are made.

42.       The original is just one but the duplicates can be uncountable. The serpents that attacked the people of Israel were many, but they were cured by one bronze serpent – the original word.

43.       God has released the original serpent (the word) to counter all the active evil serpents of rebellion, ungodliness, hatred, malice, evil speaking, wickedness, etc as we worship God at homes.

44.       This is achievable in our individual lives only if we can continually value the word - this word made flesh (the Son of Man) in our midst.

45.                 I continue with Hebrews 4:1 AMP THEREFORE, WHILE the promise of entering His rest still holds {and} is offered [today] let us be afraid [to distrust it], let us be what? This is why we are enjoined to fear God.

46.       Many people are afraid of what God has made instead of the maker. If people had feared God the extent they fear the current corona virus pandemic (Covid19), God will not judge the world of unbelief. If we must be afraid of anything, we must be afraid of distrusting God and his word.

47.       Distrusting God means doubting God’s capacity to save you because doubt is the visible and invisible sign of unbelief. Nothing belittles and demotes a worshipper more than doubt.

48.       Remember John the Baptist’s experience; after creating faith in the hearts of all the believers about the Lord Jesus Christ, he turned round to doubt the authenticity of his profession by sending people to enquire from him whether he was the one to come or should they wait for another.

49.       For that singular act, Jesus rated John from the highest echelon to the least. Truly I tell you, among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet whoever is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he (Mtt. 11:11 NIV).

50.       We must be afraid of making the word of God of none effect, causing those that have believed in God to start developing doubt because of our behavour, body gesture or even unguided comments. Since God and his word are one, when we distrust God’s word, making it of none effect in our lives, in the lives of our families, we are distrusting God himself.

51.       SO HERE, I HAVE GIVEN INSTRUCTIONS TO ALL, “GET RID OF UNBELIEF IN YOUR FAMILY.” IF YOU WANT YOUR FAMILY TO REMAIN UNPOLLUTED, PURE, IMMACULATE WHITE IN THE SIGHT OF GOD, GET RID OF ALL TRACES OF UNBELIEF NO MATTER WHERE IT IS FOUND. EXPOSE IT [Midnight Cry Vol. 1 26/4/2020 chapter 2:36-37]. THE WORD OF GOD DOES NOT CALL FOR REASONING.

52.       IT CALLS FOR BELIEVING. AND WHEN YOU BELIEVE, YOU DOUBT NOTHING. THE MOMENT YOU DOUBT, FAITH IS OF NON-EFFECT (Midnight Cry Vol. 3 26/4/2020 ch 2:14).

53.       What unbelief does to the soul of a brother or sister is the same thing cigarette does to the lungs of a smoker. A smoker’s lungs serve as a chimney that stores the corollary remains of smoking.

54.        The accumulation of unbelief in the heart of a child of God leaves much to be desired in the whole life of such a person.

55.       Not only that, as toxins gradually eat away human leaver that is how unbelief, doubting or distrusting God eats away our chances of getting saved. In the beginning, Apostle Peter’s chances of walking on the sea with the messiah was 100% assured and guaranteed until his faith started ebbing.

56.        It was only there and then that his chances of walking on the sea started reducing like the bars on a phone’s battery.

57.       If Jesus had left Apostle Peter alone, do you think he would have survived it? However, when Peter took off, he took off on a very good note, his faith, trust and belief in the man he was fallowingwas high and sure, unwavering because he never believed him as a mere man like himself, but as the Lord God Almighty.

58.        He started very well. That is a wise fellow constantly prays that his end will be far much better than his beginning. He was the one that said lord, if you are the one, bid me come.

59.       And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

60.        And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? Matthew 14:28-31 KJV

61.       The greatest enemy and opposer of mankind as far as eternal life is concerned has been doubt. We must strive against doubt, fight it with our last blood in order to be found in Christ.

62.        Immediately Peter started reasoning the possibility of his fellow man to sustain him afloat on the river, he wanted to discover all the secrets behind it, he started sinking. We are not called to know everything; we are simply called to believe in Him; knowing very well that any one that gets to its turn must be revealed to us.

63.       Going to hell with full head knowledge of everything and enjoying life eternally with Christ as a zombie, which one is better? Our chances of getting saved, putting on immortal bodies stand sure, unhampered and guaranteed as long as we do not start distrusting the Son of Man in our midst.

64.        That is our sanctified estate, that is our right standing with God, that is our point of holiness. God is not looking for the faith you had before which is no longer there presently now.

65.        He is looking for the sustainable, mustard-seed-like faith that will remain there and continually grow. That is why He gave us the message Grow in Faith.

66.        Hebrews 4:1 AMP - THEREFORE, WHILE the promise of entering His rest still holds {and} is offered [today] let us be afraid [to distrust it], lest any of you should think he has come too late {and} has come short of [reaching] it.

67.       It is not what you think but what God says. If your thinking is not in line with what God said you should set your mind on, you are indirectly clearing your path to destruction.

68.       Think and meditate over the engrafted word of God to enable you count your blessings and name them one by one and not the other way round.

69.                 …Any god that has no don’ts is not worthy to be worshipped. In your quiet moment, think about this faith. Many have not sat down to think about this faith because maybe they are just passing through with time.

70.       One thing is to pass through this faith, another thing is for the faith to pass through you. You are not saved, you are not in the faith of the Son of Man until the faith of the Son of Man has passed through you – Examine Your Relationship with Christ Vol. 2 22/06/’14 pg 34:14-15.

71.       It is after passing through the faith for many years that people start having that euphoria and air of being in paradise already without recourse to the qualifications set by the faith. Strive, not to enter into the church, but to enter into Christ because wherever He is, there you must be, if you are found in Him.

72.       To pass through the faith means to identify with the Bride of Christ Ministry; fall in love with her modus operando; be serious with and zealous of her activities such as attending fellowship regularly and on time too, supporting all her programmes financially and morally and even helping others to understand the faith more.

73.       Such a fellow is able to do that simply because he has passed through the faith and has become handy with the teachings and doctrines of the faith. At this level, having known what the faith is all about, the person can be assigned duties and responsibilities in the church.

74.       Passing through the faith has no age limit. They can be found among the children, youths, parents and elders. Yet, the faith has not passed through such a fellow.

75.       GOD’S NATURE IS YOUR TICKET TO PARADISE. PREACHED ON 9TH JANUARY, 2011.Pg65 Vs 44-45 Let no man fool you into believing that God clothing you with immortality will ignore what you are.

76.       If he will ignore you and take you anyhow, what is the essence of giving you his words all these years? The essence of God giving us his word is to refine us, reform us, renew us and regulate our habits to suit God’s purpose. No more, no less.

77.       If the word of God does not reform, does not refine, does not renew, does not revive, it is a sure sign that the person has no part in God. When he said” come that I may wash you by the water” which is the word, you think he does not know what he is saying? Nothing cleanses you but the word of God.


RISE UP!

Our former Pastor Nnamdi Ogbogu preached a message he called Failure before the Target. Here is a word of encouragement to the fallen heroes.

2.          God made us understand that nobody can fail but a hypocrite. When God makes a negative prophecy, he looks for a hypocrite he will use to fulfill the prophecy.

3.          This is because the righteous man fails many times and equates his rise with the number of his failure. Yes! (For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief Proverb 24:16 KJV).

4.          A man can only be righteous through the light of Christ. Man must fail to prove that no man can prevail by the deeds of the flesh and by his strength ­­(He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail 1 Samuel. 2:9 KJV).

5.          (No king is saved by his vast army; no warrior is delivered by his great strength Psalm 33:16 KJV).

6.          I can remember reading a text message sent to the Son of Man by an elder. He was requesting that the Son of Man should make him to be perfect in everything like God himself.

7.          At the end of the reading, the Son of Man simply said, he wants to become the devil.There is time for everything. From time to time, man must fail to reveal that every soul putting on flesh must depend on the eternal God to succeed.

8.          We are living in the era of restitution of all things. If nothing is fallen away, there will be no need of restoration.

9.          There must be a fallen away before restoration. For God`s healing attributes to be made manifest, somebody must fall sick.

10.     Where there is no sick fellow, the healing power of God cannot be made manifest. There can never be correction where there is no fault.

11.     Somebody must have defaulted before correction is made. I Am Bringing all Families Back Vol. 1 14/5/2017 pg. 21:23-25.

12.      When Jesus the Christ of his day was carrying the cross, he fell more than ones until there came a man from the opposite direction who helped him to carry the cross.

13.     Our message said that failure is not a crime, neither is it the end of our struggle. The Christ of our day said that we fail because we are yet to master the art, the act and the intricacies. Hence, he said that failure is a step backward for a higher jump.

14.     The worst crime is resting on our oasis when the savior is still there beckoning on us for a continuous spiritual exercise, especially now that the battle has gotten to its fiercest level. Awake thou that sleepest, that is the call of the hour.

15.     What I am trying to say is that they that place their hope, trust and faith on the Almighty God shall never be stuck in failure because through rising and falling shall no man be saved.

16.     Look, I am coming soon! Hold tightly to the little strength you have—so that no one will take away your crown (Revelation 3:11 LB).

17.     Our strength shall be renewed by God who never gets tired.But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.Isaiah 40:31 KJV.

18.     To renew means to restart, refurbish, re-enact, begin again, etc. if there is no delay, no stoppage, no failure, there will be no need to begin again.

19.     However, since the Lord is mindful of his own, when they start fainting, God will revive them, but the down fall of the wicked is the end of his life, his ministry, even his endeavor. A wicked fellow is one that has no regard for God.

20.     Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom Isaiah 40:28 NIV.

21.     For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite onesIsaiah 57:15 KJV.

22.      Any day you feel that you have arrived, you have no need of the Son of Man again, that is the failure point and no room for rising. You are plunging your entire family into hell.

23.     Many brethren have already lacked this revelation. That is why they feel comfortable when they are not connected to the Son of Man’s family.

24.     Many have not listened to any message from the family of the Son of Man since we were sent back to our homes in fulfillment of prophecies.

25.      In the same vein, many have not read a single sermon book preached in the house of the Son of Man within the period under review.

26.     If you ask them, they will try to blame it on poor income. That they have no money to purchase android phone for receiving the information, they have no money to order for messages, etc.

27.     You are indirectly saying that you are not called according to God’s purpose because every seed of God is strategically placed where he will not only witness but be a part of what God is doing in his day.

28.     Being a part of it includes having the wherewithal to follow up when God is making his move.  A hypocrite will divert the resource God made available for that purpose and still keeps on blaming God.

29.     Such are the failures themselves who have sworn never to get to the target because it is not over until it is over. However, those that pin their hopes on Him know that he is from everlasting to everlasting.

30.     Lord, who may enter your Temple? Who may worship on Zion, your sacred hill? Those who obey God in everythingin everything; When God approves the use of phone for disseminating information, you approve it along with him by striving to get one.

31.     After all, Prophet Mohammad prophesied about Allah putting in place a gadget that would enable distant fellowship, through which he would get to those far away. If these things do not happen, how can the prophecies be fulfilled?

32.     Lord, who may enter your Temple? Who may worship on Zion, your sacred hill? Those who obey God in everything and always do what is right, whose words are true and sincere, and who do not slander others.

33.     They do no wrong to their friends nor spread rumors about their neighbors. They despise those whom God rejects,    but honor those who obey the Lord. They always do what they promise, no matter how much it may cost. 

34.     We promised to serve God under any condition, where is the fulfillment? Small test that God gave us, many failed woefully. Many have even forgotten that offering is a part of worship, simply because they warship at the confines of their homes thinking that God is not watching.

35.     Some give offering whenever they remember. If anything is not done when and how God wants it, it becomes sin because it is unbelief. You are challenging God’s authority.

36.     Some vowed and don’t want to fulfill the vow. Some have completely forgotten the act of thanksgiving. Note: By so doing, you are counting your family out of God’s salvation plan.

37.     They make loans without charging interest and cannot be bribed to testify against the innocent. Whoever does these things will always be secure. Psalm 55:1-5 GNB.


 

Glory be to God. If you refuse the personality God has introduced to you, you have indirectly or ignorantly rejected God. As many that said No to THE SON OF MAN, you have seen that THE SON OF MAN and the Father are One. Who do you think that they have rejected? Where will they end it at the end? When you reject the Saviour, can you be saved again? You cannot be saved without a Saviour. Can you save yourself? I AM YOUR SAVIOUR. I AM THE ONE SENT TO COME AND BRING YOU HOME. If you refuse to go with Me, I will abandon you. Finish! I do not beg you to follow. Prove for yourself whether I am He, the One you are waiting for or whether you should continue to wait for another.

FORGET NOT THE WORD

 

For us to strive earnestly in order to be made acceptable unto God, we must hate what God hates and love what he loves.

2.          In other words, we must take note of our one common enemy, the devil because he is ever happy to see us in enmity with Christ. Before we roll into errors, we must have forgotten what God said concerning a matter like that.

3.          That is why Harold Willmington in his work “The Doctrine of Satan” pinpointed some deadly phenomena that bedevil us when we forget what God had earlier told us concerning those things. He called them “The 16 Deadly Ds of the Devil.”

4.          Disappointment: To be disappointed is to forget –“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Rom. 8:28).

5.          Discouragement: To be discouraged is to forget – “And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God” (1 Sam. 30:6).

6.          Despair: To despair is to forget – “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair” (2 Cor. 4:8).

7.          DoubtTo doubt is to forget –“I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting (1 Timothy, 2:8).

8.          Disbelief: To disbelieve is to forget – “Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God” (Hebrew 3:12).

9.          Distraction: To be distracted is to forget –“But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me (Matt. 14:30).

10.     Doublemindedness: To be double-minded is to forget – “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways” (James 1:8).

11.     Dishonesty: To be dishonest is to forget – “But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God” (2 Corinthians 4:2).

12.     Deceit: To be deceitful is to forget – “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9).

13.     Dullness: To suffer dullness is to forget – “Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing” (Hebrew 5:11).

14.     Deadness: To suffer deadness is to forget – "How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” (Hebrew 9:14). “And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead” (Revelation 3:1).

15.     Delay: To delay is to forget – “Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth” (Proverbs 27:1).

16.     Defilement: To be defiled is to forget –“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” (1 Corinthians 3:16-17).

17.     Defamationto defame someone is to forget –“Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer” (Psalm 101:5). “He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool” (Proverbs 10:18).

18.     Disobedience: To disobey is to forget – “And Samuel said, hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams” (1Samuel. 15:22).

19.     “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

20.      Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness” (Romans 6:14-18).

21.     Discord: to sow discord is to forget – “Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.” (Proverbs 6:14).

22.     “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren” (Proverbs 6:16-19).

23.     We must keep ourselves busy with what God has told us for us to escape the dangers ahead.

GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION


Y

asa [[;v"y] is one of the many Hebrew words used to connote salvation meaning to save, help in distress, rescue, deliver, set free, etc. There are levels and grades of salvation.

2.          When God protects you from the hands of your numerous enemies, helps you prosper and live long here on earth, He has saved you from premature death.

3.          When He shields you and helps you to avoid or forestall dangers that could have plunged you into irresoluble occurrence; probably something that could have disfigured you, He has saved you from calamity.

4.           When he provides a means for you and your dependents to feed well and avoid being maimed by hunger (as he did to most of us during the Covid 19 lockdown), he has saved you in the time of distress.

5.          The examples are endless. That is why He told us that if you are worshiping a god that cannot protect you, you should run away from that god. However, one can enjoy those things from God and still perish.

6.          The salvation that counts most and should matter to a child of God is eternal salvation which is eternal life.

7.          Only the elect shall get the revelation, for the revelation of Who God is goes to the elect alone. The non-elect can never get it and that’s why non elect have nothing to do with eternal life. They can get physical security.

8.          They can get physical blessings but decree them completely out of eternal life because they are going to be deceived for they are a part of the world.

9.          Christ Himself said they must be deceived except the elect (The Blessings of God are Hidden in Obedience Volume 1 15th September, 2019 Chapter 1:10).

10.     The Anointed One wearing the Shekinah Cloud 9/10/2001 pg 21:8 However, if I want to give you eternal life, I will not read the bible. You know, when you want eternal life, you come to a man who will give you that eternal life, for He alone has the father sealed.

11.     It is only but one man whom the father has sealed that will give you eternal life. If I want to give you eternal life, I know I won’t go to the Bible…

12.     God has been a master planner from the foundation of the world. He does not just wake up to start acting. His actions take majority of people unaware simply because they are not personally and practically acquainted with God.

13.     To those that are acquainted with Him, He does reveal his plans to them and tell them to wait for it even if it does not occur in their lifetime.

14.     The Sovereign LORD never does anything without revealing his plan to his servants, the prophets (Amos 3:7 GNB).

15.     Salvation plan is one of such plans which God has designed from the foundation of the world. and to explain to everyone that God is the Savior of the Gentiles too, just as he who made all things had secretly planned from the very beginning. 

16.     And his reason? To show to all the rulers in heaven how perfectly wise he is when all of his family—Jews and Gentiles alike—are seen to be joined together in his Church 11 in just the way he had always planned it through Jesus Christ our Lord (Ephesians 3:9-11 LB).

17.     Examine your Relationship with Christ Vol. 2 (22/06/14) pg. 61:45-54You see, FAITH COMETH BY HEARING. WE TALK ABOUT FAITH, YOU SEE, IT IS A BIG MOUNTAIN.

18.     FAITH MEANS SIMPLY TRUSTING IN WHAT YOU HEARD, BELIEVING THAT THE PERSON THAT IS TALKING TO YOU IS GOD’S MOUTHPIECE SENT TO YOU FOR YOUR OWN SALVATION.

19.     You see the faith God is talking about? He made it plain that an unbeliever is better than a make-believer. This is because an unbeliever will be plain enough to tell his/her misgivings. However, the make believer claims that he believes more than any other person because he/she is targeting something other than eternal life.

20.     A real believer is sore afraid of unbelief, doubt and hypocrisy. However, a make-believer have those things as his articles of trade, he is proud of them especially when he finds himself among the congregation of make believers.

21.     Some are selective believers. They have situations they will believe Him as God and occasions he is just human. They can only believe tentatively fully when they see his prophecies fulfilling.

22.     I said tentatively because some unrepentant obstinate doubters will even try to tell you that what is taking place is normal, that they said it happened so, so and so place once upon a time.

23.     This is an attempt to unlink the event to the prophecies of this man, because to him, the man is just an ordinary fellow like himself and his words should not be swallowed hook, nail and sinker.  

24.     To some people the Son of Man is God only inside the general congregation. That is the time they will accord his voice some elements of recognition.

25.      To such people I ask, is it Aso Rock Villa that made President Buhari the President of Nigeria? Is it only when he is there in the Aso Rock that he is the president? If he goes to the beer parlour, won’t men of the press rush him to know what he has for Nigeria? If Aso Rock is what made him the president, it then means that anybody that finds his way there automatically becomes the president also.

26.     I am saying that the environment and the circumstance surrounding the Son of Man have nothing to do with His personality as the Lord of lords. What made him God is internal and not external. Wherever he is going to, He travels with his Divinity.

27.      After all, the current president of Nigeria more often than not, administers Nigeria from Daura, his hometown. Yet, he remains the president. All the bills signed in Daura by the president remain as valid as the ones signed in Aso Rock or elsewhere.

28.     EVEN IF HE INDICTS YOU, IT IS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. HE BEATS YOU, IT IS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. WHATEVER, WHATEVER, ALL FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. FOR THE THOUGHT OF GOD TOWARDS YOU ARE THE THOUGHTS OF GOOD AND NOT OF EVIL TO GIVE YOU A BETTER END.

29.     Jeremiah. 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future NIV.

30.     If we are with hope and a guaranteed future, God will not be making such plans again. I am saying that Saul never went out in search of any sheep until one got missing.

31.     For God to make plans of salvation for us, it is because we had no hope of salvation ab initio. Accepting this fact will help us to pin our hope on him that has come with full and complete salvation.

32.     That was why Jesus Christ in the book of John 9:41 told them that if they had accepted they were hopelessly wallowing in the dark because of their spiritual amnesia, paralysis and blindness, he would have given them hope of seeing through the divine light; but for insisting that they were wise in their own conceit, insisting they had hope without that God-man in their day, he allowed them to wallow deeper into the abyss of hopelessness.

33.     As for me, I know, I accept and I believe that I cannot make it without the Son of Man. Even if the size of human eyes be like the size of a building, as far as they cannot reverently behold that Elect One when you look up, they are blind before God.

34.      It means that such a fellow is earthly for earthly vessels can neither behold nor recognize heavenly beings.

35.     Try to see if you can behold the Elect One!  He was faithful to God, who chose him to do this work, just as Moses was faithful in his work in God's house(Hebrew 3:2 GNB).

36.     That is why it takes the spirit of sportsmanship to worship God rightly any time he manifests in human form. It was lack of sportsmanship spirit that made Moses’ relations and some elders of Israel to undermine the divinity of Moses.

37.      They never appreciated his leadership because God’s election result ran contrary to their expectations. Man has always been guilty of presupposing how God will carry out his promises.

38.     If we know how God will help us, He can never help us. If you start imagining how it will happen, He will fulfill His promise but you will not benefit from it.

39.     This is why the end timers had it as a testimony that they were fervently praying for God to send His Elect One. To see the insincerity in many hearts, most of them had already made some recommendations to God on the human beings He should use as the Elect One.

40.     Some even recommended themselves. That was why most of them could not crossover, rather they stumbled, crumbled and crash-landed when God’s choice ran contrary to their expectations and such people lacked sportsmanship spirit.

41.     Enoch knew that people would not accept this Son of Man nor give him his due honour, that was why in the Book of Enoch chapter. 46:3-6 he said: “This is the Son of man, who has justice, and justice dwells with him, and all the treasures of secrecy he reveals, because the Lord of the spirits has chosen him, and his portion overcomes all things before the Lord of the spirits in rectitude to eternity.

42.     And this Son of man, whom thou hast seen, not another Son of man. They are not two. This Apostle Peter Odoemena (blessed be His holy name), He is the same that reigns eternally.

43.     And this Son of man, whom thou hast seen will arouse the kings and mighty from their couches, and the strong from their thrones, and will loosen the bands of the strong, and will break the teeth of the sinners.

44.     He has the power to shake those mighty kings and their kingdoms because he is mightier than all; just like He has just shaken all the presidents of the countries in the world using Covid19.

45.     And he will expel the kings from their thrones and from their kingdoms, because they do not exalt him and praise him, and do not acknowledge humbly whence the kingdom was given to them.

46.     Every knee must bow and every tongue confess that the Son of Man is the Elohim, however, the issue of concern is when? Will you do that when it will grant you the opportunity to be given dignified inclusion or will you observe it as a part of your punishment that will be capable of changing no situation?

47.     And he will expel the countenance of the strong; and shame will fill them: darkness will be their dwelling-place and worms will become their couches, and they will have no hope of rising from their couches, because they do not exalt the name of the Lord of spirits.

48.     Here is another confirmation from Abdrushin’s Grail Message: It is not up to humanwill to somedayelect the Son of Man sent by God…that is to say, God’s choice ran wholesomely contrary to man’s desire and choice.

49.      If God had left the election of the personality that would be the Son of Man in the hands of mere human beings, till eternity, nobody will ever consider Apostle Peter Odoemena (blessed be His holy name) fit for this task. Everybody would either end it up electing himself or somebody else.

50.     It is not up to humanwill to somedayelect the Son of Man sent by God but the Power of God will uplift Him at the hour when a helpless, whimpering mankind begs for deliverance.

51.     Have you seen it that this deliverer came according to time and prophecy? He came when the world is celebrating evil and evil people like it happened in the days of Noah and lot.

52.     He came when helpless people were earnestly praying for his help and deliverance because of the unpalatable and uninhabitable condition of the world.

53.     Yet mankind never desired the personality; only the power of God will establish him and his ministry. Where else will he be God (by the power of God) if not among us?

54.     That was why at Amazu Oil, in early 90’s, a pocket of people found themselves praying for God to send a deliverer, his descent notwithstanding.

55.     The same mankind that were helpless, who were praying, crying, wailing and begging God for deliverance rejected the choice of God. That is the sad news and shocking part of it.

56.      Since you knew somebody that was suitable for that position, why pretending, claiming that you were praying and waiting on God to send a guide? 

57.     It is not up to humanwill to somedayelect the Son of Man sent by God but the Power of God will uplift Him at the hour when a helpless, whimpering mankind begs for deliverance.

58.     Then all blasphemy will cease, because horror will silence these mouths, and they will accept willingly all the gifts the Creator offers His creatures through Him.

59.     Both those that utter their blasphemy orally and inwardly against this Elect One, they will all be hushed, shut up, silenced by the horror, fearful occurrences, terror that will engulf the whole world.

60.     When they realize that events have now vindicate God’s choice, they will become mute and the wise ones among them will be looking for a way out, asking for a moment of respite because it has become clear that whatever one wants to attain must be through him.

61.     This is in line with Prophet Enoch’s message that whosoever that must attain righteousness must do that through this man born to righteousness. In other words, he is the door to paradise.

62.     If you must smell paradise, it must be through him; you want to be peaceful, progressive, holy, pure, undefiled, righteous and be in right standing with God, it must be through him or never. Rejecting him means accepting the direct opposite of all.

63.     Then all blasphemy will cease, because horror will silence these mouths, and they will accept willingly all the gifts the Creator offers His creatures through Him.

64.     But he who will not accept them from Him shall be cast out for all eternity[Grail Message by Abdrushin]  [Resonances to the Grail Message]

65.     The Son of Man has never hidden his identity to those He called. Far back on 18th January 1998 in the message He titled The Conclusion of the Whole Matter pg 22:2, He plainly said it  

66.     Whether you like it or not, you did not call Me, you never ordained Me. If you were to make a choice, not even one of you in this Faith would have chosen Me. If you were to appoint somebody that will be your preacher even this moment, nobody will appoint Me, but I must impose Myself on you even now whether you like it or not. I am imposing myself on you.

67.     Blessed, honoured, to be envied are those people whom the Son of man volunteered to impose himself on. The Son of Man is God’s special gift to mankind in this generation.

68.     Accepting the gift means eternal life because you will be dignified and included into his programe. However, politicking the gift because you were not the electorate, because your expectation of referendum and plebiscite never materialized leads to eternal death.

69.     Here is a sign of spiritual blindness, when such eyes behold the Elect One, they will find fault with him, turn away and try to create their own path.

70.     Who told you that you can succeed? You could have as well created your own heaven and earth; not trying to make nothing out of something.

71.     Yes! God makes something out of nothing, but his adversaries try to make nothing out of something. When you find fault with a perfect and glorious message, may be because the descent of the harbinger does not sink well with you, yet you turn around to use the same message to establish something else by thwarting it, definitely, you are arriving at nothing.

72.     It is a futile effort and that is why I said that some are trying to make nothing out of something. The word of God is already perfect and that is why it perfects the imperfect if only he can accept it.

73.      It is either you accept it the way it is and move from nothing (imperfection) to something (perfection) or try to wrong (fault) the word and wrong yourself for Indeed, Allah does not wrong the people at all, but it is the people who are wronging themselves(The Holy Quran, Surah 10:44).

74.      How do people wrong themselves? Examine Your Relationship with Christ Vol. 2 22/06/’14 pg. 62:47 BUT SOMETIMES, PEOPLE ARE STRUGGLING TO OPPOSE GOD’S OWN PLAN FOR THEM. WAS IT NOT WHY THE JEWS PERISHED? THEY NEGLECTED GOD’S PLAN FOR THEM AND INSTITUTED THEIR OWN PLAN OF SALVATION.

75.     APOSTLES, IS IT NOT WHAT IS DOCUMENTED? ONCE YOU NEGLECT GOD’S OWN GIVEN PLAN OF SALVATION FOR YOU, YOU ARE BOUND TO ESTABLISH YOUR OWN. THERE IS A MYSTERY THERE.

 

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

CAN A HUMAN BEING CONTRIBUTE ANYTHING TO HIS SALVATION?

 

Sometimes, people get confused over issues of salvation by grace as opposed to works. This is because the bible made it clear that mankind has nothing to contribute to his salvation and also went further to instruct that we should work out our salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians. 2:12).

2.          Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost (Titus 3:5).

3.          Can a human being really contribute anything to his salvation? Definitely no!

4.          God’s plan for salvation through grace and truth can be illustrated using the physician and a patient; for Matthew 9:12 made us understand that it is only a sick fellow that has need of a medical doctor.

5.          We came to God because we are spiritually sick – we need therapy, imperfect – we need perfection, unrighteous – we need God’s own righteousness, we are desirous of eternal life; and God is the possessor and embodiment of all.

6.           If a sick fellow is hospitalized and the doctor prescribes drugs for him after thorough examination, what is expected of that patient?

7.          Remember that if the patient can handle and manage that health challenge on his own, he will not seek the help of a physician. It is because he has exhausted all his efforts to no avail that made him look for the doctor.

8.          If on getting to the hospital, he is told that the doctor is not around, his heart will faint. Have you seen why he that comes to God must of a necessity believe that there is God and that he exists? (Hebrew 11:6).

9.           If you believe that God exists, there must be a form in which he exists. The patient going to the hospital knows that a doctor exists there in form of his fellow human being.

10.     Being his fellow human being notwithstanding, he believes that the doctor has something he himself (the patient) does not have. If the apron made him what he is, the patient will simply purchase one from the market, put it on and treat himself.

11.     If the hospital made that doctor what he is, on entering the hospital, the patient will automatically know what to do in order to recover from the sickness without any doctor’s guidance.

12.     This goes to show that what made him doctor is inside of him.

13.     When the doctor finally prescribes drugs and the patient patiently follows doctor’s prescription which starts from purchasing the right drugs and taking/injecting them at the appropriate time, if he recovers from the sickness, who will take the glory? Palpably, the glory goes to the doctor.

14.     Does it mean that the patient did not contribute anything to his survival? The emphasis here is on the fact that he did not know what to do, he lost hope, he would have died if he did not seek the attention of a doctor.

15.      If he had known the right drugs to pick and the right time to take them, there is no need going to the hospital.

16.     After all, he exhausted all the self-medications he knew, but the sickness aggravated. That is why he has gone to the hospital.

17.     In summary, the patient contributed basically nothing. If the recovered patient must insist on taking the glory, did he not see some others that were treated by the same doctor, yet they died?

18.     Not all that calls him lord, lord will be saved. Though all of them will attend church together, have everything in common, eat and drink with him, hold positions, yet only a remnant shall be saved.

19.      What God does is that he brings the ball to the corner of one He wants to save to enable him/her score the goal.   

20.     Let us be glad and rejoice and honor him; for the time has come for the wedding banquet of the Lamb, and his bride has prepared herself.

21.     She is permitted to wear the cleanest and whitest and finest of linens.” (Fine linen represents the good deeds done by the people of God) (Revelation 19:7-8 LB.) Not everybody is permitted to wear this righteous linen because it is the eternal immunity against God’s judgment and condemnation. 

22.     However, assuming the patient refuses to follow doctor’s medication conscientiously and as a result losses his life, who takes the blame? In that way, he has wronged himself and equally killed himself.

23.      He has committed suicide because the doctor would have been his grace but he spurned his days of grace. He is still trying to prove to the doctor that he is not yet tiered; he still knows what he can do to survive order than doctor’s prescription.

24.     He is trying to correct the doctor. He can only take the glory if he succeeds in correcting the doctor and fully recovers from his sickness. Then the doctor is of no help to him.

25.     This is why God’s greatest gift to this age, to the Bride, to you and me as individuals is the Son of Man, that is God’s decision to offer us himself. His appearance is the unmerited favour ever.

26.     We are not worthy to receive this divine being. That is why he first sanctified as many as believed in him to enable him have dealings with us, address us as his brethren without any form of shame (Hebrew 2:11). Do you think it is easy for a high chief to refer to commoners and slaves as his brethren?

27.     There is no grace without Christ appearing. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ(John 1:17 KJV) While coming, he came with truth that sets free.

28.     This truth serves as doctor’s prescriptions to us since it is through the intake of this truth that we can attain his celestial height. God decided to give us life through the word of truth so we might be the most important of all the things he made(James 1:18).

29.      If the word is not relevant, preaching is unnecessary. The word is the mirror that will show everybody that spot that will prevent him / her from making it.

30.     I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING HERE. ALTHOUGH WE PREACH UNIFORMITY OF THE GOSPEL, THERE IS NO UNIFORMITY IN GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION.

31.     GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION IS GIVEN TO INDIVIDUALS ACCORDING TO WHATEVER GOD HAD ALREADY PROGRAMMED FOR THEM. Examine Your Relationship with Christ Vol. 2 22/06/’14 pg. 63:49.

32.     Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place (Psalm 66:12 KJV)

33.     People hastily refer to God as the Almighty without a second thought over the word. The word almighty means having complete power; omnipotent; having complete power to do all things.

34.     There is nothing he does not have the ability of doing or the knowledge or the required skill of carrying out. Let me assume that we have all accepted that God is all-powerful, all knower, he can do all things but there is something we do not know.

35.      We don’t know what He will do at any point in time, how He will do it and where He will do it because He can do unimaginable things and give unimaginable instructions to test the faith of his followers.

36.     Examine Your Relationship with Christ Vol. 2 22/06/’14 pg. 63:50 - God can come to Apostle Kelechi and tell him, “If salvation is important to you, cut this tree before the daybreaks.” And he believes.

37.      If he succeeds cutting it, that is all. He (God) will go to another person and tell him to sell all he has and share it to the poor.

38.     He will meet another person and tell him, you see this River Niger where people offload their refuse; you must go there and bath for one week. 

39.     Obedience to God’s word is your salvation depending on the Word of God that has come to you. For the Word of God that has ever come to man for salvation has always been opposed to the man’s desire. This is why you must have your revelation of who is talking to you.

40.     There is nobody in this most holy Faith that can tell me what God will tell him even now, and what God has in mind for telling him that. For what you may be thinking might be one million miles away from what God has in mind.Strive to enter because this is an individual race.

41.     The Decision to Follow Christ 18/7/2015 pg. 66:13 That is why the Bible said that God’s righteousness is revealed from faith to faith. It will take God to tell you what you will do in your day that will become you righteousness.

42.     And until you discover it, you will be holding church righteousness and self-righteousness, missing God’s righteousness.

43.     Until you discover what God’s righteousness is, you will not be wrapped in His righteousness. That is why every surviving saint of God today, every late saint became a saint because he or she was wrapped in God’s righteousness; not self-righteousness for God has His own way of putting human beings right with Himself.

44.     Romans 1:17 KJV - For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

45.     The Word, page 45:13. THOUGH WE ARE MANY, ONLY A FEW ARE CHOSEN FOR SALVATION. THE REST ARE CHOSEN FOR FELLOWSHIP. THE REST ARE CHOSEN FOR COMPANIONSHIP, WHICH WILL ONLY TERMINATE HERE

46.     NO DECEPTION IS OF THE TRUTH VOL. 1  Preached on Sunday 28th January  Pg. 90 vs. 40 – 41.Whosoever God sends in your day is the God of your day.

47.     Once He finds fault with you, God has found fault with you. When you are pleasing Him, you are pleasing the person that sent Him.

48.     If your relationship with Him is strained, forget about eternal life because your relationship with God is strained. If you dare pull on His shirt, you are pulling on God’s shirt.

49.     When you mock Him, you are mocking God. You ridicule Him, you are ridiculing God. You ignore Him, you are ignoring God. You will not see another God than He that is sent, for God Himself dwells in whom He has sent.

50.     Beware of Spiritual Death Vol. 2 (12/4/20) Chapter 1:5-6 Recognize what puts you into trouble and then avoid it. Recognize that which brings about quarrelling between you and God and avoid it.

51.     When you do that, you have the victory. You have the peace. And You have the assurance of salvation.

52.     That is if you avoid it and remain steadfastly avoiding it, holding unto that your spirit unto the end, not avoiding today and going back tomorrow.

53.     Beware of Spiritual Death Vol. 2 (12/4/20) Chapter 5:74 ETERNAL LIFE IS A REWARD FOR OBEDIENCE TO THE WORD OF GOD.

54.     Surah 48:1 – 7 [The Noble Qur’an] 1Verily, We have given you (O Muhammad) a manifest victory. 2That God may forgive you your sins of the past and the future, and complete His Favour on you, and guide you on the Straight Path;

55.     3And that God may help you with strong help. 4He it is Who sent down As-Sakinah (calmness and tranquility) into the hearts of the believers, that they may grow more in Faith along with their (present) Faith. And to God belong the hosts of the heavens and the earth, and God is Ever All-Knower, All-Wise.

56.     5That He may admit the believing men and the believing women to Gardens under which rivers flow (i.e. Paradise), to abide therein forever, and to expiate from them their sins, AND THAT IS WITH GOD, A SUPREME SUCCESS  Surah 62:1 – 2. [Abdullah Yusuf Ali] 1Whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare the Praises and Glory of Allah,- the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.

57.     2It is He Who HAS SENT AMONGST THE UNLETTERED AN APOSTLE FROM AMONG THEMSELVES,[1]TO REHEARSE TO THEM HIS SIGNS,[2]TO PURIFY THEM, and [3]TO INSTRUCT THEM although they had been, before, in manifest error Surah 62:5 The example of those who were entrusted with the Torah and then did not take it on is like that of a donkey who carries volumes [of books]. Wretched is the example of the people who deny the signs of Allah . And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.

58.     FIND OUT GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOU. 1 Chronicles 14:1- LB – King Hiram of Tyre sent masons and carpenters to help build David’s palace and he supplied him with much cedar lumber.

59.     David now realized why the Lord had made him king and why he had made his kingdom so great; it was for a special reason – to give joy to God’s people!

60.     Have you found out why God made you an apostle, an evangelist, a bishop, a pastor, a teacher or a deacon, a brother or a sister? Have you found out why God made you on overseer of your family now that real worship has gone back home?

61.      If your finding is different of that of king David, have a second look at it because it means you are not worshipping the God of David.

62.     He realized that it was for a special reason, and that was to give joy to God’s people; not to mixed multitude. God’s people are known by one thing – nothing gives them strength more than the joy of the Lord.

63.     They rejoice at the unadulterated word of God. If there is no joy and revival in your family, it is either because you have not realized why God made you the head of that family or you have detached from the head (the Son of Man) and bear no fruit any more.

64.     We can never make any headway until we realize why God has placed us where we are.

65.     It could also be that members of your family are children of belial who are repulsive to the things of God. There were too many people that were being persuaded or even forced to attend fellowship then.

66.     Tell me what the family head can do now to give such people joy through the light of the gospel. They can only be glad over sensual and carnal things like the children of Job.

67.     Whenever worship is mentioned, their countenances change. These are the people Prophet Enoch said will be pleading for a respite to enable them worship, reverence and honour the Son of Man but He will pressure them out of His presence.

68.     Today, if you hear his voice, harden not your heart. Strive that you may enter through the straight gate. Remain blessed in Him eternally.
