AS MANY AS I HAVE CHOSEN FOR SALVATION, CAN NEVER OBTAIN THE WRATH OF GOD, FOR HE SAID, “HE NEVER CHOSE US TO OBTAIN HIS WRATH, BUT TO OBTAIN SALVATION THROUGH WHAT CHRIST HAS DONE FOR US, OPENING OUR EYES OF UNDERSTANDING THAT YOU MAY BEHOLD

HIM AND SAY, “WELCOME.

LET CHRIST BE THE MECHANIC OF YOUR LIFE

Remain blessed brethren. We thank God who has made it possible for us to be alive till this day. It is not easy. It is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes.

2.           Let us not forget that any day we find ourselves alive in the land of the living, it is a big opportunity for us to correct the errors of the previous day. I want to use a little illustration to type in something.

3.           When a car develops a fault, the owner takes it to the mechanic workshop for repairs. This is for the mechanic to check the car and find out the problem of the car.

4.           When the mechanic is done checking the car, he will tell the owner what he found out to be wrong with the car, and then also tell him the solution.

5.           It is now left for the owner to decide whether he wants to take the solution or not. If he takes the solution, the car will be repaired and put in a roadworthy condition once again.

6.           Sometimes, after working on the car, it becomes newer than it was.

7.           What am I trying to say? Let Christ be the mechanic of your life. The human life is like a car. As a child of God, when you go astray, you know, your conscience will be pricking you because you are a child of God. You know you have done something wrong.

8.           Now, you are looking for a way to make it right, to correct that error in your life, to wipe and remove that spot in your life. What do you do?

9.           Just like the way the owner of the faulty car went to the mechanic workshop, you as a child of God should equally go to God; that is the WORD. Because God is His WORD.

10.       It is in the scriptures; in the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God.

11.       So you go to God(the Word, the messages). This Living Word will now present your fault to you. He will make everything plain and place them before you.

12.       Just the way the mechanic checks the car, the Word will check your life and show you where you have erred. Not just showing you where you have erred, He will equally give you the possible solutions.

13.       He will give you the remedy. You are now the one to decide whether to take the remedy, the solution or not.

14.       When you take the solution, which is the Word assiduously, when you take it seriously, God must surely help you correct that error so that you will become holy once again. Can you now see that the human life is just like a car? Yes, it is like a car.

15.       Even if you have not done anything wrong, as a child of God, you should always be in constant habitual fellowship with God, evaluating your life, scrutinizing your life daily, cross checking your experiences.

16.       That way, you will always be conscious and alert against the subtle ways of the devil for the devil is very, very cunning and deceptive.

17.       It is just like the car, from time to time, you take it to the mechanic workshop to service the car. Not that it has any fault, but you just go to run some checks on it. Change some things. By so doing, the car will always be active.

18.       What am I saying in essence? LET CHRIST BE THE MECHANIC OF YOUR LIFE.

19.       Some people do not even read the messages, they do not even crosscheck their daily experiences.

20.       Why? It is because they have no conscience. The conscience is dead. When your conscience is dead, there is nothing on this earth that can make you change.

21.       To begin with, you have not even accepted that you are wrong. You can only accept that you are wrong if you have a living conscience. You will be sober.

22.       Once you are a child of God and you miss fellowship just for a day, you will rest at nothing until you make it right with God.

23.       But now, we are in our homes as individuals and families, I do not know how many that are taking worshipping of God seriously. They no longer have fellowship in their homes whether as individuals or families. Even when they do, some no longer give offering.

24.       Some wait for their offering to accumulate for many Sundays before giving it. Don’t worry. That is the same way God will pass the accumulated judgement uponyou.

25.       They think they can survive without Christ. You cannot survive without Christ for He is the Author of your life. He can utter a word from where He is at Nsugbe and you will die instantly.

26.       Let us consider the book of John chapter 15 from verse 4 through 5 using the New International Version.

27.       Verse 4 says; Remain in Me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself;... Have you seen that you cannot survive without Christ? For in Christ we live, in Christ we move, in Christ we have our being.

28.       Just this small place alone has already shown us that you cannot do anything without God. Let us go further with the scriptures.

29.       ...No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. It M.U.S.T. Underline it. It must remain in the vine.

30.       You must remain in the Faith of Christ if you want to survive, if you want to live, if you want to succeed, if you want to excel, if you want to have eternal life!

31.       ...it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me. Brethren, God has said it all. I want you to understand that you cannot do anything without God.

32.       So you that think because you have this and that, things are going well for you. You are doing just fine, ask yourself a pertinent question; ARE YOU IN THE VINE? Ask yourself this question today, now, this minute. Are you in the vine? Am I in the vine?

33.       God said if things are going well for you when others are just living normally or trying to survive, that you should check yourself, check it very well to know whether those blessings of yours are from the devil.

34.       ...Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit.

35.       That is why we sing it in our song;

If that Great Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me, dwells in you, it will quicken my mortal body. It will quicken your mortal body.

36.       If you remain in Me and I in you,  you will bear much fruit. It is not when you get small wealth, you think you have arrived, and then you place God aside. You will no longer remember God.

37.       But when you had nothing, you were always running to God, crying day and night. God now came your way, blessed you and made you successful, then you no longer place God first.

38.       Jeremiah said it is not the way of man to direct his life. Allow God to direct your steps, to show you the way. The Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, The Elohim taught us a song which says;

39.       Show me thy way O Lord, that I may follow you, I will walk in the truth, for there is life in You.

 THERE IS NOTHING THAT GIVES ME JOY MORE THAN THIS: THAT WHOEVER THAT IS CONNECTED TO HIM HAS THAT ASSURANCE OF ETERNAL LIFE BECAUSE HE IS NOW A PART OF THAT BIG FAMILY OF ABRAHAM. FAITH HAS CO-OPTED HIM INTO THE FAMILY. THAT IS WHY WE GLORIFY GOD EVERY DAY.

REMAIN IN HIM WHILE HE REMAINS IN YOU

It is only when you walk with God and allow God to be in you and direct you that you will live. Let us read that scripture from Jeremiah chapter 10 from verse 23 through 25 still from the New International Version.

2.          I know, O Lord, that a man's life is not his own;... Have you seen that your life is not your own. Until you know who God is, you cannot understand that this life is not your own. He gave us a message titled WHO IS GOD TO YOU? Do you know Him as a Righteous Judge or just as a Merciful Father?

3.          I know, O Lord, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps. Correct me, Lord, but only with justice—not in Your anger, lest you reduce me to nothing.

4.          Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge You, on the people who do not call on your name. This was a prayer. Jeremiah made this prayer. If you check that New International Version, it captioned it “Jeremiah's Prayer.”

5.          And remember God answers the prayer of the righteous. The prayer of an evil doer is an abomination to God and God does not answer such.

6.          Verse 25 says pour out Your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge You, on those who do not call on Your Name. Those that do not regard God. Those that do not take the fellowship seriously. God will pour out His wrath on them.

7.          So we have to be very careful. The Bible says; do not be deceived, God is not mocked, whoever that calls upon the Name of the Lord should depart from iniquity.

8.          God has been warning us, talking to us, indicting us, and chastizing us even with hot displeasure, whether directly or indirectly. For whenever a seed of God hears his name in a message, he or she must know that God is referring to him.

9.          Are you now waiting for God to pour out His wrath upon you before you turn back to Him? It will be very, very disastrous. I hope no one is wishing that upon him or herself. Remember the; AS I THOUGHT ON MY WAYS, I RAN BACK TO GOD. Run back to God today!

10.     Let us read that John chapter 15 verse 4 through 5 in amplified version. I believe it will amplify it.

11.     Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me.

12.     You have to be vitally united to the vine. If you check the meaning of the word "vital" in the dictionary, it means absolutely necessary; essential.

13.     Something that is absolutely necessary, very essential and important. So you can now see that being vitally united to the vine is absolutely necessary, very essential for your life.

14.     Verse 5 says; I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in Him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.

15.     It is only when you are found in Christ that things will work out for you. That is when you can be progressive and fruitful. But when you cut off from that vital union, which is God and is absolutely necessary and essential, you can do nothing. You will perish in hell.

16.     God has really tried for us. He has done so much, taught us well, given us so many teachings for us to survive and have good lives and enter paradise.

17.     He even gave us a message titled; PLACE GOD FIRST AND HE DIRECT YOUR WAYS STEPPING INTO YOUR DESTINY.

18.     In the message WHERE WILL YOU LIKE TO SPEND YOUR ETERNITY?, our Brother Chibuikem Odoemena spoke about counselor. Who is your counselor?

19.     If you place God first, He must surely be your counselor because before you do anything, you must consult Him, you must enquire from Him the way you should go about it.

20.     You must find out His mind concerning that thing, whatever it is. This is because you have placed Him first in your life. So whatever counsel He gives you, you must take it. Yes, you must take it.

21.     There is no way you will place God first and you will not take what He says. It means He is now your number two. He is no longer number one.

22.     When you take the decision to change and turn from your evil ways, God must surely help you. As long as you are ready to come before the Lord, no matter what you have done, God must surely help you come back to Him.

23.     We sing it in our song; Just as I am, Thy wilt receive, wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve; because Thy promise I believe, O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

24.     God is saying you should come before Him today, just as you are, take that decision. Take that decision to follow Him and never draw back.

25.     FOLLOW HIM WITHOUT LOOKING BACK, HE WILL RECEIVE YOU, HE WILL WELCOME YOU, HE WILL PARDON YOU, HE WILL CLEANSE YOU, HE WILL WASH YOUR SINS AWAY, HE WILL RELIEVE YOU OF THAT BURDEN BECAUSE HE HAS PROMISED TO SAVE HIS OWN, AND I BELIEVE THAT PROMISE. I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT AS FOR ME, I BELIEVE IT.

26.     So if you decide today that you will follow God with a pure heart, a humble and contrite heart, God will surely help you. It can be seen in 2nd Chronicles chapter 7 verse 14. King James Version.

27.     If My people which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and will heal their land. Is it not clear? It is very clear.

28.     When you decide to change, God must surely help you. But what if you do not decide to change? What if you do not want to change?

29.     After hearing the Word of God, you continue in your evil ways, no remorse, no repentance, of course your conscience is dead, and then what will God now do? God will destroy you. He will pour His wrath on you.

30.     Zephaniah chapter 1 verse 6. New Living Translation.And I will destroy destroy those who used to worship Me but now no longer do. They no longer seek My blessings. God will show him or her no mercy.

31.     When you hear the Word of God that is coming directly to you, and you do not make a decision to change, you do not feel remorseful; it means you are wicked and proud.

32.     Because it is only someone who is proud that will not be sober after hearing the Word of God. It means God is not even in his plans.

33.     He has no business with God, the same way God has no business with him; for whatever measure you measure unto God is the same measure God will measure unto you. Throw a ball to the wall, it will bounce back to you.

34.     In the message CLOSE THE DOOR OF YOUR HEART AGAINST YOUR KNOWN ENEMY. Part 2, God said that we should be very careful that we do not walk in a way that will provoke God to speak in a harsh manner or to proclaim something that is evil on our heads.

35.     Though it tarries, God will never forget it. One day, He will remember it and come to execute it. Because of that, we fear Allah, we fear God, because He is very swift in taking records.

36.     So if you are quick to talk, quick to act, let it be known to you that you are having dealings with The Almighty God who is also very swift in taking records and Allah does not forget.

37.     That is why He gave us a message that we should be careful of the voice that roared on our heads. God does not speak in vain.

 SO MANY WILL PERISH NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY HAVE DONE BUT BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY HAVE REFUSED TO DO.

NOTHING IS AS DESTRUCTIVE AS PRIVATE INTERPRETATION OF THE WORD OF GOD. FOR THE WORD OF GOD ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES IS OF NO PRIVATE INTERPRETATION. GOD IS THE PERFECT INTERPRETER OF HIS WORD.

TO BE FAR FROM GOD (1)

Let us go to the message; YOU ARE THE NEXT TO DIE. VOLUME TWO.

2.          This message was preached on 23rd February, 2020 at the Household of God, Onitsha by Apostle Peter Odoemena. Page 38 from verse 33 through 42.

3.          If God will close His eyes, turn His back for one second against an individual, disaster must surely strike.

4.          That is why no matter your prayers, no matter your knowledge of the scriptures and things like that, make a single slip, before you know it, something terrible will happen.

5.          And once it happens, you will come back to your senses. A sure sign that there is somebody that is following you bumper to bumper, not giving you a breathing space, and waiting for opportunity to strike. This is because, if he spares you, you may change your mind.

6.          Can you now see that the devil is our greatest enemy and we should close the doors of our hearts against our known enemy? He comes in a very subtle and quiet way. He makes sin light before you. Your language will be: "It does not matter."

7.          The devil is always fighting to make sure we fail God and immediately you succumb to the devil, God can close His eyes against you. And just one second He does that, you can die that instant.

8.          That is why excommunication is very, very dangerous because you are no longer under the protection of God, and at that point, ordinary wind can make you die; even the water that you are drinking can choke you to death.

9.          Remember, all these things can happen just in that one second that God closed His eyes against you.

10.     Then God said no matter how you pray, it will never work. He will never answer. I said it earlier that God does not answer the prayers of the wicked. It is an abomination to Him. While you are praying, it is becoming worse.

11.     If you pray to God and He does not answer, it means your heart is not right with God. Turn back to God now before it becomes too late, make your heart right with God, be sober, the Lord will hear your humble cry. Do the needful first!

12.     The same way, God is all out to protect, following His elect bumper to bumper, and offering protection.

13.     God can never abandon His own. It is not possible. He is a jealous God. He can never permit the devil to snatch away a child of God from His Hand, a true elect.

14.     You can lose everything and get away free, but the moment you lose protection from God, your life is in danger. Lose protection from God, how do you know it? God will speak contrary concerning you.

15.     Brethren have you seen it? Be very, very mindful of the voice that roared on your head. God can never destroy without first of all warning. WARNING BEFORE JUDGEMENT.

16.     Before God destroys, He must have warned and warned and Waited patiently for you, to know whether you can turn back to God, but you did not. That is when God will now hand you over to a reprobate spirit. That time, you can never hear any Word of God that is coming to you again, you can never change.

17.     All your actions, all your utterances will now be evil. You can never do anything good again. You become an unrepentant and unproductive human being.

18.     A nuisance to yourself, to your parents, to the society at large and also to God. Who will like this to be his or her condition? Definitely nobody!

19.     Nobody will like God to hand him or her over to a reprobate spirit where hardening insensitivity will becloud you. Let us see what God did in Romans chapter 1 from verse 28 through 32 using New International Version.

20.     Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, He gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.

21.     You see? Evil spirit from God will anoint you and you will now be doing abominable things. Things that people will hear and ask questions like "Whose child is this?" Do you want that to be your portion? Let us continue with the scriptures.

22.     They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful.

23.     They invent ways of doing evil. Hei! When that person is seated, you will think he is there with you, you do not know he is far away, busy thinking of how to do evil. Brethren is this not a miserable condition?

24.     They disobey their parents. They are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know it is God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these things but also approve of those who practise them.

25.     Their clique will now be those who do the same thing. Birds of the same feather flock together. One that does evil, an evil doer will always look for a fellow evil doer and befriend him. That way they form an evil company, an evil association. And evil association corrupts good manners.

26.     It is just like that rubbish statement, that if you cannot beat them, join them. God has warned us concerning that statement. That we should stand on our feet and stand firm. No matter how they will come, that we should never succumb.

27.     It is even better you die, God will save you, because He has seen that you were trying, you stood your ground and said you will never join them.

28.     It is just like cultism. When they come to recruit you, and say that it is a must that you will join, that if you do not join, they will kill you.

29.     It is better for you to die that time, because even if I join, I will still die. They will still kill me. A time will come, you will be killing so many people, you will even be the head of the gang.

30.     Then a time will come when you will be the one to die. It is better I die that time without shedding any blood, having anybody's blood on my hand, than for me to join, soil my hands with blood and then still die after everything, then perish in hell and receive eternal damnation.

31.     What God is looking for is someone that will stand firm no matter how you are being pulled or pushed. The devil will be dragging you from here and there, it is better you stand firm, let the cloth tear, than for you to succumb.

32.     The second is like the first. Evil money, no matter how broke you are, no matter how poor you are, then you now decide to go and cheat someone to get money. GOD FORBID!

33.     You do not know what that person passed through before getting that money, you do not know whether there is someone he kept at home that he wants to help with that money.

34.     You do not know whether there is someone depending on that person, then you go and cheat the person. You are just like a murderer. Let us get it in the Amplified Version. It used chemistry to explain it.

35.     And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome,

36.     Until they were filled (permeated and saturated) with every kind of unrighteousness, iniquity, grasping and covetous greed, and malice.

37.     God will first of all open you, if there is any little good left in you, he will remove it and then fill you with evil things.

38.     When God fills an individual, who can remove that thing? The person's conscience is dead, seared with hot iron.

39.     Nothing can set that person free again. Only God can speak otherwise. Then who will now be your advocate? God said we should be careful lest our Advocate becomes our Judge.

40.     Who will speak for you when you are challenging the authority of He that should speak for you? You have said that your own is the best. Is it good?

41.     God permeated them, He opened them and then saturated them with all those evil and false spirits. God will now open the person and fill that person to the brim with false anointing. Even if he wants to do good, he will see himself doing bad. A dead conscience.

42.     Antipas was in a city of evil, but he was still able to do good. Let that person not be your undoing. Let that person not hold you back.

43.     Let him not influence you from right to wrong. Because there is a force greater than that person that is controlling that person.

44.     So let that person not be the person that will make you say there is no need to do good. No! It is necessary that we do good. It is important.

45.     Antipas was in the city of the devil and he was still righteous, but look at us, we are not in the city of the devil, we are in God’s family. We are surrounded by brethren, though there maybe one person that is still struggling to find his feet.

46.     Mummy Moses sent a text to The Son of Man; salute the Heavenly bound brethren that are surrounding Him. That is why Daddy asked us in this family, if it is a crime for the same thing to be said about us? That you are a Heavenly bound brother, a Heavenly bound sister.

47.     Look at Antipas, did he complain? But you will see someone doing a wrong thing and you get angry, you will be raging, God said you should talk to the person, when you talk to the person, you have washed off your hands.

48.     But if you do not talk to the person, God will hold you guilty. So do your own part, leave the rest for God. You will not kill yourself. Do you know what it means that someone is constantly seeing evil things around him every day?Not just every day, every second, he was seeing evil, that was Antipas, but he still stood firm, knowing that God was with him, that God will never forsake him.

49.     He was not the one that struggled his way through not to join them in doing evil, it was God in him that helped him.

50.     Why? Because he took the decision, then God saw it that he decided that he would never succumb to all that were happening around him, God now helped him. And God gave his own testimony.

51.     It is better for God to share your testimony than for you to share the testimony yourself. He might even bless you the more or promise you another thing while He is sharing your testimony. Let us equally see just that portion in King James Version.

52.     And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

53.     Can you see that God will now hand that person over to a reprobate mind, a reprobate spirit? Let us go ahead with the message YOU ARE THE NEXT TO DIE.

 A CHILD OF GOD THAT IS NOT CONSCIOUS OF HIS LIFE SURELY WILL BECOME ONE OF THE FOOLISH VIRGINS. IF YOU ARE NOT WISE, YOU ARE NOT CONSCIOUS OF YOUR CHARACTER, YOU ARE NOT CONSCIOUS OF YOUR OUTLOOK, THE WAY YOU TALK, THE WAY YOU LOOK, THE WAY YOU DO THINGS; YOU ARE NOT CONSCIOUS OF THE PEOPLE SURROUNDING YOU, THE TYPE OF WITNESSES, THEY WILL TESTIFY AGAINST YOU OR IN YOUR FAVOUR, DEFINITELY YOU WILL BE GIVEN A PLACE AMONG THE HEATHENS DUE TO YOUR STUPIDITY, YOUR IGNORANCE AND BLINDNESS OF YOUR HEART.

TO BE FAR FROM GOD (2)

You are the next to die volume 2. Page 40 from verse 38.The moment the voice of God begins to go contrary towards you, you have lost your protection and you do not need a Prophet to tell you. Unimaginable things will be coming to you.

2.           No matter the prayers, no matter the devotion, the more you pray the worse the situation becomes.

3.           And whenever God will call upon you, His Word will be harsh. He will speak to you with unfriendly tone because you are no longer a friend.

4.           At this point, you are now God's enemy, and God will close the door of his heart against you. God's children will equally close their hearts against you.

5.           That is why you must know how God relates with you. If you do not know how God relates with you, you will not know when your relationship with God is strained or has been completely severed. You will not know when the spirit has left you.

6.           What a miserable condition! You will be thinking God is still with you, yet He has left you. That is why you will pray and it will back fire, it will not be answered because you decided to abandon God, and your relationship with God is damaged.

7.           How do you know God's countenance towards you? It is by watching the countenance of the person where God dwells. If His countenance towards you is friendly, then God is friendly with you.

8.           May we remain God's friends. Let us not do things that will make God proclaim us His enemies. Page 101 from verse 79 to 80.

9.           You can only be saved when you hold unto the profession of your Faith without wavering unto the end.

10.       You can only be saved when you hold on to that good commendation God has given you. Of course the devil is not happy, he is fighting a battle. This is a battle and you need to fight the good fight of faith.

11.       That is why the “PSM” is very important; PRAYER, STUDY and MEDITATION. During that period of meditation, you crosscheck your life, crosscheck your experiences to know how to level up.

12.       That is, when the heart is upright and you are in right relationship with God. You can never be in right relationship with God when your heart is not upright.

13.       One whose heart is not right, can he be in right relationship with God? It is impossible! Unless you want to make God a liar and God is not a liar.

14.       Let us go to the message TIME FOR SELF EVALUATION VOLUME ONE. Preached on Sunday, 5th October, 2014 at the Household of God, Onitsha by Apostle Peter Odoemena. Page 28 from verse 23 through 25.

15.       Any of my sheep that goes astray, I will correct. But for those that do not belong to Me, though they are in the fellowship of My sheep, I will allow them to go to hell, they will gnash their teeth.

16.       Someone might be in the fellowship doing evil, but God will leave him or her. That is the way he or she is ordained to go. But watch one that God loves, God can never keep quiet when the person is going astray.

17.       Those that do not belong to Him, he will just let them have their way. They will be coming to fellowship. Yes, God said that even the devil goes to church.

18.       That is why you will see someone will be in fellowship; he will not be paying attention. At the end of the fellowship, that person can never tell you even one thing that he learnt. His mind was not in the fellowship. Or the spirit of mind-wandering rested on him.

19.       He can also be a torment to you, trying to distract you from paying attention to the Word of God that is going on. That is the devil in human form. Spirits do not die, they live to possess or anoint individuals.

20.       Therefore whoever the Lord loves, him He corrects that he might be zealous and repent. When there is no error, there is no need for correction. Remember, an error is not a willful omission or a willful commission.

21.       If you willfully disobey God's instruction, it is a challenge of His authority; you wait for what will follow. Finish!

22.       But if you go into error mistakenly, ignorantly, being one of His flock, He must surely correct you and bring you back to the fold. Remember, we are handling, "Stop and Think."

23.       Whoever that is destined to die, must die. Let favour be shown to the wicked, in the land of the upright, he will still do the ungodly.

24.       It is only a dog that you will give a pearl, he will trample upon it and turn round to attack you. Every man must go the way he is ordained.

25.       That is why the Bible said, "Let he that thinketh he stands, be very careful lest he will fall. I missed it narrowly". I missed it narrowly. Nearly can never kill a bird. God said we should be careful about the last minute manifestation of unbelief.

26.       You have missed it, for narrowly can never score a goal. Maybe you have been following all this while, doing what God says, but one thing, it might be a small thing you have refused to do, can cause you to miss it.

27.       God said it is Enugu's language; It does not matter, no shaking. I don't care attitude. That is why we should be sober, conscious of the hour we are living in, knowing that it could terminate any minute.

28.       We should be continuously cross checking our daily lives, whether they are in line with the messages we are receiving, even in the family altar.

29.       At the end of the day, before you go to bed, before you pray, you crosscheck your life, the life you lived that day, check whether you have any loophole. Check whether you did anything wrong.

30.       God said; "Confess your sins and shame the devil." Confess your sins before the Lord, in your prayer, you confess your sins. Not just to say God forgive me my sins. It is even there in the Holy Quran. Pastor Wisdom was preaching that day, he said confess your sins and shame the devil, that way the Lord will set you free.

31.       Son of Man said we repent everyday. So you are not the worst. You are not the worst sinner. Even the vilest offender will still come before the Lord as long as that person has taken a decision to change.

32.       As long as you have taken a decision to follow God, even if you killed someone, God will surely give you a helping hand. As long as you are ready to confess your sins and shame the devil.

33.       We are not saying you should come out here and tell us what you did. No, I do not even have time to listen to it. It might even make one to hate you, because the person might misunderstand you.

34.       He might not know that you are trying to correct your ways. Yes, because we are still in the flesh, you know the activities of the flesh. True or false?

35.       When you tell someone what you have done wrong with pure motive, with the intent to stop it, the other person might not have a pure heart, and he can use it against you.

36.       He can even use what you told him to blackmail you, but the Lord will not do that when you confess before Him and shame the devil.

37.       So when you confess, you talk to God, God see what I did today, I did so, so, and so things that You said we should not do. Please forgive me. When you confess and actually stand by it, God will forgive you.

38.       That is why the Bible said, from time to time, put them in rememberance of these truths. I have constantly told you that the devil is not yet dead.

39.       The devil is not happy. The devil is not happy. I want us to be very conscious of the fact that the devil is not happy. Once you are a child of God and God has spoken good concerning you, the devil is not happy.

40.       He is still alive, roaring about, seeking whom to devour. It is not over until it is over. Pastor Wisdom said that the devil does not look for the weak, for the feeble minded or the weak in spirit, but one that is spiritually filled.

41.       Son of Man even said that that once you have decided to do the Will of God, the devil must surely attack you. The devil is not yet dead, he is alive. Spirits do not die.


GOD CAN NEVER ANSWER THE PRAYER OF A DISOBEDIENT FELLOW FOR HIS PRAYER IS AN ABOMINATION BEFORE GOD. IS IT NOT SCRIPTURAL? THE EARS OF THE LORD ARE ATTENTIVE TO THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS. BUT HE HARDENS HIS EAR AGAINST THE REQUEST OF THE UNGODLY. WE BETTER TAKE NOTE OF THESE THINGS. PRAYER IS NOT THE KEY. YOU MUST BE RIGHT WITH GOD BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR PRAYER. IF YOU ARE NOT RIGHT WITH YOUR PARENTS, DO YOU GO AHEAD AND MAKE REQUEST?

We are the redeemed of this Generation. Vol. 2 preached on 26th January 2014. Pg. 84 vs. 6-7

LIVE A PRAYERFUL LIFE

We have one common enemy, and that is the devil, he can use your brother or your sister, then you think he or she is your enemy, but it is still the devil. That is why we should always be prayerful.

2.          We should not just pray for ourselves alone, but we should also pray for our brothers and sisters. Praying at all times. It is not only in the morning and night that we should pray. You can just be walking on the road and be praying to God. Now if that be the case, you will find that your heart will always be guarded, because you are communing with God.

3.          Daddy taught me that whenever I want tostudy academic books, I should first of all read even if it is one page of a message, utter some words of prayer, then commit everything into the Hands of the Lord.

4.          My roommate in the hostel, who is in dentistry department, whenever he goes out and come back, he will sit on his bed, bow his head and pray before doing any other thing. If he goes down to buy food, whenever he comes up, he will do the same thing. Have you seen that the thing is now part of him? And that is the way he grew up.

5.          He believes that for anything he does, he has to pray to God. For anything he does, he has to pray to God. The boy challenges me. Even if it is one minute, you will see him praying. This is what he learnt from his parents when he was still a little boy.

6.          There is an igbo adage that says that you do not learn how to use the left hand at old age. Meaning that it will be difficult to learn what you ought to have learnt as an infant, at your old age.

7.          But we are not yet old in this family. Are you old? If you are not yet old, say "I am not yet old." We can still learn it. God said that prayer is the key that unlocks all doors, coupled with Faith. One important thing is faith.

8.          That thing that you have been finding difficult, that thing you have been trying to overcome. You have tried and tried, tried your best. Prayer is the key.

9.          It is not yet over until it is over. If you are not vigilant, if you are not careful, a step into Canaan can mean your disaster. All you have been building all these years, this your opponent who is not willing to lose the match, can stop your journey one step into Canaan.

10.     Are we going to let him do that? There is a song we used to sing; Will the devil win you in the battle? Say no! Say no! Child of God say no! (Ekwensu  aga-emeri unu n'agha, si mba o, si mba o, nwachukwu si mba o)

11.     Say no! That the devil will not win. Take a decision today, say no, and then back it up with prayers. You cannot do this thing on your own, we are not looking for self righteousness.

12.     What we are looking for is God's righteousness and it is only God that will help you. So you have to trust in God. Trust in God that He will help you.

13.     Do we actually trust in God? Do we actually confide in God that he will help us? You say; God I know You are the only One that can help me achieve this thing. I cannot do it on my own.

14.     As long as there is God, there is hope. My God is alive. God is not yet dead. God said that the devil is not yet dead, but I am also saying that my God is not yet dead. Are we getting the message?

15.     Since the devil is not yet dead, God is not yet dead. God does not die. He is eternal, everlasting, He lives forever and He is the Almighty!

16.     This one is like the first one I read. Page 57 verse 26. In everything you are hearing, take note, God is correcting only His own and only His own will take the correction, the rest will not. Every man must go the way he is ordained.

17.     If you are not God's elect, you can never take any correction, rather correction will even be offensive to you. It will even make you to be more hostile.

18.     What sustains a man's conviction is registered in the heart, not in the brain. Do not be a brain believer of the Bridal Faith, be a heart believer.

19.     You are not a believer until you have believed in your heart, for with the heart, man believeth unto righteousness; with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation. Not with the brain you believe and with the mouth, you confess but your heart is far away, you become a hypocrite.

20.     That is why you can only take a decision when you have made up your mind and then stand by that decision. It is from your heart.

21.     It is not after saying you will do it or after telling you, you believe, but it has not registered in your heart. Remember out of the heart, all the issues of life come forth. Remain blessed.

IF YOU WANT TO GET ALL YOU WANT FROM GOD, THE SECRET LIES IN SUBMITTING YOURSELF TO HIS WORD. WHEN YOU OBEY GOD, ASK WHATSOEVER YOU WILL, YOU WILL GET IT. THE MOMENT YOUR OBEDIENCE IS FULFILLED, YOU WILL GET WHATEVER YOU WANT.

OBEY QUICKLY AND QUIETLY AND DEPEND FULLY ON GOD

This morning, we will continue with the message we considered last night. TIME FOR SELF EVALUATION volume one. Peached on 5th October, 2014. So for today, let us start with Verse 14 of page 70. It says;

2.           Neglecting God's Word is one of the serious problems of the church. When you hear something,  you neglect it. It does not mean anything, carelessly; even if I do not do it today I can do it tomorrow.

3.           God has told us to start doing something, you procrastinate and say it is when it is convenient for you that you will do that thing.

4.           You have obeyed quite alright, but you did not obey that instruction when you were supposed to obey. So that one is not obedience.

5.           Even if you later did that thing, so far as God gave you an instruction to do it now and you left it, it is not obedience. And it is unbelief. It means you do not believe that God can destroy you at that time for leaving that instruction He gave you.

6.           Even if I do not know you today, tomorrow will reveal you. The condition you find yourself can never make you what you are but will only tell the world who you are.

7.           The glory of God is here, He has come down, He will never depart. He promised it and His promises are yea and amen. I say it wherever I go, in the Son of Man are all God's promises fulfilled, because in Him dwelleth the fullness of the Godhead bodily.

8.           Know it that of a truth, procrastination is a sin... What? Delay in carrying out instruction is a sin. And sin is unbelief.

9.           Doing it at your own convenient time, not the time God wants it to be done. How many are guilty of it here? All of us. Nobody is free from this. If we are not guilty of this, God will not be saying it this morning.

10.       I will not judge, thou knoweth thyself. When was this message handled? 1996. Maybe by that time, many of you were not here.

11.       You might be saying, "I didn't mean to do it." Is it scripture? He said, "God will hold you guilty forever."

12.       That is why He challenged the people who were guilty of it, telling them, can you bear it? Will your strength sustain you? Can your hand bear it? Can your leg outrun God in the day He will visit your iniquity?

13.       God said there is no hiding place. Even if you run to the water, the water will reject you. The water will throw you out. It is unfortunate that I do not have teachers who can stand in the pulpit and use the scriptures and messages, tie all of them together.

14.       Know it that of a truth, procrastination is a sin, the confession you are supposed to make today, if you do not make it today, you are a sinner.

15.       The Lord made us understand that His Word is a mirror. We even have a message titled mirror. That is why when you go to the library, just pick up a message, you must see one verse that will correct your life. Are we getting the message?

16.       So when you now see that verse that is talking to you, that verse that is pointing out what you did, you just say you will try to stop it, but you have not actually decided to stop it, you procrastinate, you are fooling yourself.

17.       God is saying now that the confession you are supposed to make today, if you do not make it, you are a sinner.

18.       What if rapture takes place and you have not made it? We all know that God sees everything we do. You are not confessing your sins to Him for Him to know what you did.

19.       He knows everything we are doing at every point in time. So anyone you will even confess to Him will not be a surprise to Him.

20.       God said that once a child of God kneels down to pray, God has already answered the prayer even before He makes that prayer. God has seen his heart and knows what he wants to ask of Him.

21.       He said if you do those things that please Me, I will give you the desires of your heart. God has looked into the person's heart and seen those things that he or she needs.

22.       We are not even supposed to be having any problems in this life. Because it is when you obey God that God will be blessing you. But if you do not obey God, you will be asking God what did I do wrong? Ask yourself, what is that thing I have not done?

23.       You see God blessing your neighbour, you see God blessing your fellow brethren, that person will be progressing. You will be saying you want to be like him, but there is something that person is doing which you have not done.

24.       And God said that partial obedience is no obedience. You will not say God I have tried now, I did this and then you now left the other one.

25.       God that gave you that instruction knows that you can do it, that was why He gave it to you.

26.       God can never give anybody anything that is greater than him, once you are a child of God. It has never happened. Has it ever happened? Even in the Bible. He is in you helping you to obey Him. He is in me helping me to obey Him.

27.       SO WHATEVER INSTRUCTION HE IS GIVING ME, HE KNOWS I CAN DO IT BECAUSE HE WILL HELP ME. GOD DID NOT MAKE A MISTAKE. HE TRUSTS YOU, HE TRUSTS MAN, MAN THAT WAS CREATED BY GOD.

28.       HE TRUSTS YOU THAT YOU CAN DO THAT THING.  IS IT NOT WONDERFUL? IS IT NOT MARVELOUS?

29.       NOW, GOD TRUSTS YOU, WHAT HE WANTS IS FOR YOU TO TRUST HIM THAT HE WILL HELP YOU. Then you trust yourself. You have faith that you can do it, that He will help you. We have a song that says; If the Lord will give me a helping hand, the work of God will not be difficult for me (Oburu na Chineke nna ga-enyere m aka, oru nke Chineke agaghi esiri m ike).

30.       If God will help me, the work of God will not be difficult for me. If God will help me to stand, no matter the way that enemy is dragging me, I will stand firm.

31.       God said that a child of God does not struggle to obey the Word of God because it is Christ in Him that will help him to obey.

32.       It is just like when you come out to lead in worship and praises in the fellowship, you will not struggle, the thing will be flowing.

33.       You might not even have anything in mind that you want to say, but because God has found favour in your sight, He will help you.

34.       IT IS NOT THE HIGHEST BELIEVER THAT GETS SAVED, NOT THE HIGHEST PREACHER, NOT THE HIGHEST TEACHER, GOD SAVES ONLY THOSE HE WANTS TO SAVE. ALL WE NEED TO DO IS TO TRUST IN HIM AND CONFIDE IN HIM. KNOW THAT HE MUST SURELY SAVE YOU FOR HE HAS SAID IT.

35.       There are so many good promises God gave you, stop dwelling on those bad ones. Stop dwelling on those bad things that He has said concerning you.

36.       Dwell on that good aspect. Know that once there is God, there is hope. As long as God is still alive. Once there is live, there is hope. He must surely help you.

37.       There is something bro Lucky told me and Sam the day we were working at the Medical Center, that when Apostle Kelechi was having problems with the Son of Man, Apostle Kelechi asked God a question and said;

38.       "If you kill me now, will anybody know that you killed me? Are the bad things I did greater than the ones those in the Bible did? Am I Moses? Am I even up-to Moses? If you kill me now, will anybody in this whole wide world know that you wiped me away from the surface of the earth?" Son of Man looked at him and then forgave him.

39.       God reconciled with him. I have told us before that it is not by our power, it is not by your strength, you are not the one sustaining yourself in this Faith, I am not the one sustaining myself in this Faith. That Daddy is still in this Faith, he is not the one sustaining himself.

40.       Check those that started with him. How many are still left? Are you trying to tell me that it is because he is the highest preacher or highest believe or most obedient? He is not the one holding himself.

41.       He said because you have known My Name, I will save you. And your knowing My Name is what I have made possible for you. Is there anyway you knew the Name of God on your own? He said;go to Eha-Amufu and deliver My people!

42.       Check someone God called co-labourer in His vineyard. God called him co-labourer in His vineyard.  It is there in the Great Sermon. Epistle 21, chapter 13. The Church at Enugu Ezike. That is verse 6.

43.       [You are not what you are because you prayed for it but because God had ordained you right from your mother's womb to be his co-labourer in His vineyard.]

44.       God is the Vine, we are the branches, if we remain in Him and He remains in us, nothing will be difficult for us. What are we now saying?

45.       Except you remain in the Faith of Christ without wavering unto the end, God will not save you. Let your end be better than your beginning.

46.       No matter what the Son of Man has said, even if He proclaimed evil, as long as you are still alive, as long as you are still breathing and God is alive, continue in Him.

47.       That you are still alive is an opportunity to correct the sins of the past. If He is done with you, you will not be here. It is true that you are a human being, when God scolds you, you are supposed to be calm and sober, you cry, that shows that your conscience is still alive, but do not kill yourself there.

48.       Do not dwell on it because if you dwell on it the devil will hold it and use it against you. God said He has refused and rejected the accusations of the devil against a child of God. David encouraged himself in the Lord.

49.       No matter what has happened, you are not the worst. You are not the vilest offender. Even the vilest offender that truly believes. All He needs from us is that you do not go back to that error for which he scolded you.

50.       Even if God has called you the worst. Just keep on believing. Do not because he called you the worst, now become tired. No! It is a test. It is what? Testing from God. Didn't we hear that message? Testing of our faith.

51.       Yes, it is true that you are human. We are still in the flesh. You did something wrong quite alright. Leave that evil. Just do the right thing.


SO IF YOU ARE NOT LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD, YOU ARE NOT A SEED OF GOD. THE WORD OF GOD, CHRIST IS THE SURE ANCHOR THAT HOLDS EVERY SEED OF GOD AGAINST ERROR, AGAINST SIN, AGAINST EVIL, AND THAT IS, WHEN THE WORD IS ABIDING IN YOU. THE WORD BECOMES YOUR POLICE MAN.

 YOU MUST BE BORN AGAN. PREACHED ON 27TH JANUARY,2019. Pg.36 Vs.76

STOP GOING BACK TO YOUR EVIL WAYS

God has called you all sorts of names, done this and that, said you did this and that. Do not argue! Do not ever argue! Rather say God I accept. I did all. I am wrong, You are right. We are still in this flesh.

2.           We have not yet put on immortality. So as long as we are still in this flesh, we will be tempted, we will be tried.

3.           Just make sure that you do not go back to that evil way. Just remain in Him. No matter how the Son of Man has spoken evil concerning you, keep on holding on.

4.           God said Apostle Kelechi gave them that secret, that He knows why they are still coming back.

5.           Apostle Kelechi gave them that secret. Return and wait. Just be pleading your case. Even after He told someone never to call His line again, was He not the One that later took His phone and called the person?

6.           Daniel Curie said, "It is not my righteousness but Your righteousness" I know I have offended you but I am not the worst. I am mere maggot. What am I that the Lord is mindful of me? I am not even up-to a drop of water in a bucket or in an ocean. 

7.           God came to a Local Government Area, he picked just one town, in the whole town, he picked one village, in that village, he picked one family, in that whole family, he picked just one individual.

8.           Are you now telling me that after He picked me up from mud, washed me, cleansed me, and even fed me, gave me shelter, gave me clothes, made me look beautiful, then because I made one mistake, all he suffered to bring me to where I am, that He will forget them? Because He saw one thing I did? Impossible!

9.           Okay see it this way, you erred, you did something wrong. God became sad, then he scolded you, he will holla at you. Why? It is because that place is for you.

10.       So whatever that will make you not to be there, He will shout so that you will remove that thing from your life.

11.       If it is not for me, He will be quiet, but because it is for me, I should get ready for scolding whenever I do something wrong. That is the love of God manifesting.

12.       You did something wrong, He felt it, His mood changed. It is just like a Potter who is molding with his best clay, then the birds of the air came and scattered it, do you think he will now leave the clay like that?

13.       He will still mold it. He will pour water on it, break it into pieces, then remold it to be even better than it was. God will be the one to heal you.

14.       God wants to boast with us. He wants to boast with you. He wants to boast with me. That is why He is not keeping quiet when we err.

15.       When another man's child defecates on the road, it is not His business, but when his father comes out and sees the child shitting on the road, he will rush and pick that child and wash and clean him.

16.       In fact, He did not say the highest I did, God has not said the highest sin anybody committed. He knows all of them. They are all in His heart. He said; "I know why I am saying it. I know why I am making it global," it is because I am a child of God. God is remembering me.

17.       I was just looking at Daddy the other day, he was looking very weak, tired, lost weight. He has been sorrowing since He heard that voice. Even when I showed him what he gave me to type, he was very, very weak. The Lord should be the One to strengthen you.

18.       He said Brother Ojiakor, relax your mind, go and have your rest. For you and Apostle Kelechi, I told you that instead of losing any of you, I will parcel you into the grave. And you know He cannot lose you.

19.       He cannot lose you and you will not die. You cannot die. Since Christ was alive and put on that immortality, I will also be alive and put on immortality.

20.       Remember, faithful is He that promised and after Me cometh no other. Remember we are closing the matter of worshipping God here on earth, no other generation.

21.       What am I saying? He has told us times without number. We are the ones to wrap up everything. He said we will be alive. We would not precede those that slept. Bishop Moses will come out and take his own. Then all the brethren that are resting will come out, we will not go before them.

22.       When they come out, we move, all of us together. What about Brother Ferdinand that wears the Son of Man's suit? He told him to stop appearing, stop coming out, on that day, you will come out.

23.       Just say God, I know You will see me through. He will help you. Christ in me, helping me to obey Him. So He can never give me any instruction that is greater than me. Let us think about this.

24.       Check that thing God said you should do which you have not done. It is not greater than you. If only you can couple it with faith, God will help you do that thing.

25.       That your evil way God said you should refrain from, it is not greater than you. If it is greater than you, God will not give you that message, He will look for a smaller one and give you.

26.       If it is greater than you, you are now trying to say that the devil is greater than you. That the devil is the one that is controlling your life and not God.

27.       God said whatever that is happening in your life, stop attributing it to the devil. Stop that! Saying that the devil is a liar. Mummy, you are fond of that. See God in that thing, that situation, that God is trying to warn you.

28.       God is trying to achieve something. He has a purpose. To secure you from danger you were supposed to enter in the future, God will change your future. God cannot change the past but He can change your future.

29.       There is something in God saying "I am with you." As long as He has told you that thing, temptations will come. They must come. But as long as He has said it, the problem is settled.

30.       So remember all the good things He said concerning you, leave that evil one. When you kneel down to pray, remind Him, say God, you are the One that said all these good things concerning me.

31.       Pastor Wisdom normally says that when your heart is right with God, that salvation becomes your right. You challenge God and said God give me my salvation. Those promises He has given you, remind Him.

32.       Talk to Him and say; God, You were the One that said You will save me. You were the One that showed me in the scriptures that it is not by me dwelling in myself or in my own righteousness; You said that it is by Your own righteousness. If You leave me, I will die.

33.       Don't you know that God can give you allowance for something to happen and then watch you? He watches you to know what you will do. Has God not said this thing even in Onitsha? That “He is the one that caused him to do what he did.” Has he not said it?

34.       You will see the person going contrary. Then people will start talking against that person and saying all sorts of things, calling him all sorts of names.

35.       You do not know that it was God that caused him to act that way. You will not know. The person might even be better than you.

36.       God places hurdles. It is a process. Until you overcome and get over all those hurdles, that is the only time He will now have full confidence in you. He has tested you and you proved your faith in Him.

37.       And that was what He did to Job. He told devil to try him, he stripped Him off everything. A wealthy man lost everything, including his children. He could not even go to the hospital. He had no money. His body was decaying, maggots coming out from his body.

38.       But the foolish wife was there prospering. The wife told him to curse God and die. The wife was doing well. That is why God said we should always check ourselves, you are doing well and prospering when the children of God are trying to survive, check it very well to know whether that wealth is from God or from the devil.

39.       The wife was okay. You cannot tell me that the wife was begging food. The wife must have had her own bank account. For her to say curse God and die, she was living comfortably.

40.       Instead of remaining alive and living in pain all through your life. I mean, she had something that was sustaining her.

41.       I want to show you something now. Watch, the devil was there, but Job dwelt on God. He dwelt on God seeing that God was the one keeping him alive. The devil was actually there also.

42.       And Job knew the Hand of God was there, God allowed it, for which cause he said in Job Chapter 2 verse 10; speaking to his wife; "You talk like a foolish woman, shall we accept good from God and not trouble?"

43.       Give me 1st Samuel chapter 2 verse 6. King James Version. The Lord killeth and maketh alive. He bringeth down to the grave and bringeth up. And in Amos it says; "Can there be evil in the city and God has not caused it?"

44.       I want you to look and check very well. All that the Lord had told us, look very well, there is something God wants to achieve. There is no Word of God that goes out in vain. That is what people do not understand.

45.       He said you can be doing anyhow because God has not yet spoken concerning that thing, but once God speaks, it is final. There is no Word that goes forth from His mouth, that is in vain. He might be sitting down, discussing with you, and then it will go out. You will not know.

46.       Are we getting it now? So that you will be careful and on the alert. So that anything that now happens, you say Glory be to God, Praise be to His Most Holy Name. We have had testimonies like that, they are many.

47.       Let us continue with the message we were reading. TIME FOR SELF EVALUATION volume 1.

 

 

 

 

WE BELIEVE GOD FOR OUR OWN GOOD, WE TRUST GOD FOR OUR OWN GOOD. YOU DO NOT FOLLOW GOD TO DO GOD A FAVOUR. WE ARE FOLLOWING GOD SO THAT HE WILL DO US A FAVOUR. DO YOU KNOW THAT?

FIX YOUR GAZE DIRECTLY BEFORE YOU, TRUSTING THE LORD

 

That if rapture takes place and you have not made it. You procrastinators, carelessly, the law of God is blasphemed from among the gentiles. The Word of God, the Name of God is blasphemed among the heathens you are having dealings with.

2.           You present yourself as the children of God while having dealing with them, in the end, pagans will be better than you. And they will be saying, if this is what Christianity or worshipping God is all about, that they will remain in their houses, for they have found this man to be a notorious and hardened criminal.

3.           Too many of them are in this Most Holy Faith. God said let your daily life not embarrass God. Let your daily life not make the Faith of Christ to be blasphemed by the heathens.

4.           When that heathen asks you the church you are attending? You say BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY. He or she will now ask; “Is this what they are teaching you in the Bride of Christ Ministry?” Are we getting what I am saying?

5.           The worst is brother exploiting brother, sister exploiting sister, when there is a warning that you should be sure you do not defraud your brother, for you are brethren.

6.           I will not talk, the Judge is here with us. It has already engulfed us. Do we have any other place to run to? We are trapped in the web; we can never wriggle out again.

7.           He said and I quote, "If you reject or refuse what I have said, I will not condemn you, neither will I judge you but in the end, the same Words I have spoken will judge and condemn you for they must re-echo in your ears before you go to hell fire."

8.           Son of Man said that in life or in death, you must meet HIM, you must see HIS face. Whether in life or in death, you must see the Son of Man. By that time, everything you have done will flash before your eyes.

9.           And if that person is not meant to be in hellfire, He is equally the one that has the power to say that the person will not enter hell. If the person enters hell, He will go to hell and bring that person out because that person is not supposed to be there.

10.       Let it be our testimony, that we are not supposed to be in hell. Let us try, when we try, God will give us a helping hand.

11.       God will confess positive things concerning us. God will say that we are not supposed to be in hell, that we are His children. Are we getting the message?

12.       He will say that we are not supposed to be there. That hell does not fit us.

13.       There was a message we read yesterday, He said that those who saw hell said that it is not a place that a human being should be. It is in the message; YOU ARE THE NEXT TO DIE. volume 2.

14.       You can never go to hell fire without your own record being replayed. So now that He is talking to us, God is shouting on our heads, all of us, are we going to continue in our evil ways?

15.       There was a time He said in Onitsha and I quote; "I have given you everything, now I know that I have washed off My Hands." Then He now gave the message; YOUR SALVATION IS NOW IN YOUR HANDS.

16.       So that you will know that He has washed off His hands and if anybody still enters hell, the blood of that person will not be required of Him.

17.       "...that now, He will recline to His family." Can we remember this voice?

18.       "...that now, He will recline to His family." He has washed off His hands from the brethren. Now He will recline to His family.

19.       The igbo adage says that the rat does not eat or pilfer what belongs to a man that is awake. (Meaning that He cannot afford to see any member of His family, getting lost while He is still alive, active and kicking.)

20.       So that He will correct His own family and make sure that there is no loophole in His family. And there is no loophole in the Son of Man’s family.

21.       If there is loophole, God does not lie. God will say it. God cannot lie! We cannot be doubting God. There is no loophole.

22.       Remember that if a righteous man commits sin, all his righteousness can never be remembered again. I get am before no be property.

23.       It is just like a pupil in primary school who was always at the top of his class, then coming to secondary school, he starts playing away his time and boasting to his fellow students about his performance in primary school, thinking it will still be like that of his primary school, only for him to start performing below average.

24.       Then he will now be asking himself: “Ah Ah, I used to take the first position during my primary school days, what is happening now?”

25.       But there is something he has refused to do. He has refused to study, thinking that he has arrived. God said He will not punish us for what we have done, but for the things we have refused to do.

26.       When He made that statement in Onitsha, brethren shouted and jubilated, rejoicing. Then the Lord now asked a question; "DO YOU KNOW THAT THING THAT YOU HAVE NOT DONE? YOU HAVE NOT OBEYED.

27.       Everybody was rejoicing, thinking it was a statement that will take all of us into paradise anyhow. Have you seen it now? But God still said that He is not saving everybody. That He can never save everybody.

28.       Remember that if a righteous man commits sin, all his righteousness can never be remembered again. Then you are a righteous man, an instructor of the foolish, you are not instructing because you are a Jew, you are not at church of Onitsha, and based on that you begin to take the step of Samson.

29.       I repeat. Remember that if a righteous man commits sin, all his righteousness can never be remembered again. Then you are a righteous man, an instructor of the foolish, you are not instructing because you are a Jew, you are not at church of Onitsha, and based on that you begin to take the step of Samson.

30.       You might be thinking that God is still with you. When the power of God left Samson, Samson did not know. Because of his foolish wife that tied him down and was doing everything possible to bring him down.

31.       We read it that day in the fellowship. She did everything possible to strip him of his power. Whenever Samson woke up, he would shake himself and the rope used to tie him would tear.

32.       It was the philistines. Until the wicked woman penetrated and Samson succumbed to the subtle ways of the devil.

33.       The subtle ways of his known enemy. That is why God said we should close the door of our hearts against our known enemy. He succumbed to the subtle ways, very, very subtle.

34.       When the devil is using someone, you might be blind, you will not even see it. Samson was blind, he did not see it coming. But because of the love he had for his wife, whatever the woman said, he would do it. She said, "Tell me where you power is."

35.       Is there anybody in his or her right senses that will be asked to say where his power is and the person will say it? It shows he was blind at that moment.

36.       He was blind, then when he fell asleep, they shaved his hair. May it never be our portion. Amen!

37.       When you believe, there is going to be a performance of that which is promised, but when you say no, nothing will work. Nothing works for an unbeliever. An unbeiever is not one that is shaking his head; no, everything takes place in the heart.

38.       Unbelief takes place in the heart. Remember I told us yesterday that the devil also comes to fellowship.

39.       The person might even be the most punctual, yet when we dismiss, ask him what he learnt, he will not have anything to tell you.

40.       Remember, we used to have memory verse. Far back 2005, 2006, 2007, we used to have memory verse. Sister Vin Obidimma used to be our teacher. Sometimes, it will be pastor Thomas. We used to have memory verse, one thing you must hold.

41.       Even if we read the whole message, we will have memory verse, one thing that everybody must hold. So whenever a message is going out, try and know what that message is trying to tell you.

42.       Are we getting it? So that you will have one thing that you will hold on to. Let me help us. Try and see that you learn at least one thing, and then say that you must obey that one thing.

43.       Once you decide that this nugget or verse you just heard now, that youmust hold on to it. “I must try to make an effort to obey it. Devil is not controlling my life. God is in charge of my life,” and for the fact that you have decided to make an effort, God will give you a helping hand. Christ helps those who help themselves.

44.       So even if we read the GREAT SERMON from page one to the last page and you do not have anything to hold on to, you did not come to fellowship.

45.       The essence of family altar is for us to hear something that will guide us for that day, then at night, you hear something before you sleep,  reflect on your life for that night, the activities of that day, you thank God for leading you, guiding you, protecting you throughout that day.

46.       We should be very, very vigilant because our enemy, the adversary is roaring round about us, seeking whom to devour. You will not know who he has anointed. If he anoints this boy, or this person or mummy or sister, you will not know.

47.       It is not written on the forehead. How will you know? That is if you are Holy Spirit filled. If you have discerning spirit. You will be seeing what he is doing. That person might not even know what he is doing.

48.       Everybody may be calling him on phone, talking to him, telling him to change his ways, yet the person will continue doing what he is doing because God has handed him over to a destructive spirit. At the end of the day, he will say "had I known."

49.       And that person must have come in contact with God. Remember that when you come in contact with God, and you refuse to obey, you are guilty.

50.       It is better you did not even identify with the Faith or come into the Faith at all, than for you to come in, and then He will tell you what to do, and you say no.

51.       That person will become a God-hater. How can somebody hate God in this life? If you are told that you will hate God, will you believe? But God will put that spirit in you. Evil spirit from God will anoint you and you will now hate God. It will be like film trick.

52.       The thing will be happening to you and you will not even know. That is why God said we should not worry when we see people misbehaving, when we see these things happening, do not worry, for if they do not happen, how can the scriptures be fulfilled?

53.       Daddy was telling me one day, that it is not good for you to always be found in the apologizing side. Everyday you are busy saying I am sorry. It is not good.

CONCLUSION

1.           Colossians Chapter 1 verse 8 through 17. Living Bible.

2.           And He is the one who has told us about the great love for others that the Holy Spirit has given you.

3.           So ever since we first heard about you we have kept on praying and asking God to help you understand what he wants you to do; asking Him to make you wise about spiritual things;

4.           and asking that the way you live will always please the Lord and honor Him, so that you will always be doing good, kind things for others, while all the time you are learning to know God better and better.

5.           We are praying, too, that you will be filled with his mighty, glorious strength so that you can keep going no matter what happens—always full of the joy of the Lord, and always thankful to the Father who has made us fit to share all the wonderful things that belong to those who live in the Kingdom of light.

6.           For he has rescued us out of the darkness and gloom of Satan’s kingdom and brought us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who bought our freedom with his blood and forgave us all our sins. Christ is the exact likeness of the unseen God.

7.           He existed before God made anything at all, and, in fact, Christ himself is the Creator who made everything in heaven and earth, the things we can see and the things we can’t; the spirit world with its kings and kingdoms, its rulers and authorities; all were made by Christ for his own use and glory.

8.           He was before all else began and it is his power that holds everything together.

9.           Hebrews Chapter 10 verse 21 to 24. Living Bible.

10.       And since this great High Priest of ours rules over God’s household, let us go right in to God himself, with true hearts fully trusting him to receive us because we have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean and because our bodies have been washed with pure water.

11.       Now we can look forward to the salvation God has promised us. There is no longer any room for doubt, and we can tell others that salvation is ours, for there is no question that he will do what he says. In response to all he has done for us, let us outdo each other in being helpful and kind to each other and in doing good.

12.       Hebrews chapter 6 verse 18. King James Version.

13.       That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us.

14.       Finally before we pray, daddy I want to tell you something. This is the last thing I will say. You know that The Son of Man said that even when things were hard, His sons encouraged him. Can we remember?

15.       So I am encouraging you now. Stop sorrowing. God that has given you that assignment will surely help you. Stop sorrowing! I am encouraging you now. Just look unto the future. Forget those things that happened in the past.

16.       I want to read that scripture but let me just say it. Forget those ones of the past, then look unto the future, hold on to the future, make sure that the future will not be stained like the past.

17.       Stop sorrowing! Look up trusting that God will help you finish that project.

18.       On this note I say thank you and remain blessed in Him eternally.

19.       Sam please lead us in prayer.


PRAYER

1.           Almighty and Everlasting God, King of kings and Lord of lords. The Ancient of days, The Immortal Being. The Elohim. The Great Mahdi. The Self-existing One. Father Lord our hearts are full of gratitude and praise for Your Name.

2.           We are most thankful to You O Lord for the love You have shown us once again this morning. We thank You for the love which we do not deserve. This love which is immeasurable, we cannot measure it, we cannot quantify it, we are most grateful O Lord. You have given us Your love once again.

3.           Each and every one of us, from the highest to the lowest, from the greatest to the least among us, we have all been revived. We have all been renewed. Our hearts have been renewed. Our assurance have been reassured.

4.           We are most grateful for You have given us Your Word, You have given us hope, You have given us life through Your Word, through Your Spirit, You have imbibed Your Spirit in our hearts. We are most grateful today.

5.           It is clear that it is You and You alone, You chose a vessel and You spoke through him and we are most grateful O Lord.

6.           Thank You Lord. We thank You and we pray O Lord that may You help us that may we not spun this love, this grace which You have granted us.

7.           May we make use of it O Lord, and may it yield the fruit for which You have sent it O Lord. May our hearts be as fertile grounds that this Word which we have received from you, this love which we have received from Your Word this morning, may it fall on our hearts as fertile grounds and may it germinate immediately and start bearing fruits to the glory of your Most Holy Name, even until eternity.

8.           We are most grateful O Lord. We cannot thank You enough O Lord. Thank You Lord. Father Lord we pray, of course You have forgiven us our iniquities, You made it evident to us that You have forgiven us our iniquities.

9.           You are only looking unto us to trust in You, to believe in You, to help us to attain that righteousness which You have been given us, which You have been preaching to us, which You have been asking from us O Lord.

10.       And Lord we pray that may You help us O Lord. You have already given us the help O Lord, we pray that may You now bring it to fulfillment O Lord. That may we trust in You O Lord, even unto eternity to obey You, to do that which You have asked us to do O Lord.

11.       Father we pray that may You help us to always be in consciousness of Your Word, in consciousness of Your abilities O Lord, in consciousness of Your innumerable, unquantifiable, immeasurable abilities, help us to always remember and bear in mind that You can do and undo.

12.       You can do anything, that You are the greatest. If we have this in mind always, we will always look up to You.

13.       We will not despair when we are in trouble, when we are sorrows. We will not despair when we fall short. We will look unto you to drag us out of that pit, out of that problem.

14.       Help us O Lord, never to lose sight of you. Never for our hearts to start failing. How can we, we know we have God, we know we have You, and then we start crying, start despairing like people who have nobody. When we have You, when You are able to do everything.

15.       You have made it clear to us that You have called us unto Yourself. You have called us Your own. You have called us Your people. You have made it clear to us that we are Your children. You have adopted us, You have brought us into Your fold.

16.       You have our best interest at heart, so why shall we despair? Help us O Lord never to forget this. That whatever we are doing, let us look unto You and realize that it is You that will enable us to do this to Your glory, to Your will, the way You want it.

17.       Let us stop striving by our own strength and our power, trying to do this thing the way we want it or to achieve it by our own strength and our own power.

18.       Let us always bear in mind that it is You that shall work in us, helping us to obey You the way You want us to obey You, not the way we want to obey You.

19.       Let us not do that thing the way we want to do it, let us do it the way You want us to do it O Lord. Father Lord help us to ever have Your consciousness in our hearts. Let us never forget You O Lord.

20.       Let us always remember You in all our conditions, both in good and in bad. Father Lord You have given us a very, very wonderful love this morning.

21.       In fact anything that You are doing, the only thing I have in mind is love, the only thing I use to quantify it is love. Anything You are doing, whether you are rebuking us, whether You are chastising us, whether You are blessing us, whether talking to us, it is Your love.

22.       Because You have made it clear to us, we used to read it in the Bible, others used to read it in the Bible, but You have proven it to us. We have seen it live, that your thoughts for us are thoughts of good and not of evil.

23.       This thing that we used to read in the Bible, we have experienced it, we have felt it, we have seen it, we have touched it; that Your thoughts for us are thoughts of good. Every little thing around us, You have shown us that Your thoughts for us are thoughts of good and not of evil.

24.       Every little activity in our lives is proving to us that Your thoughts for us are thoughts of good and not of evil. Which means that everything You do concerning us is depicting Your love.

25.       Even if You slap us today, it is depicting Your love. Help us to always have this thing in our hearts. That Your thoughts for us are thoughts of good and not of evil.

26.       We are no longer talking about whether You are God or not, You have proven it even to the unbelievers. We ourselves, help us never to forget that You are God. Help us never to forget that You are the Creator of the whole universe. You own our lives, You own us.

27.       In everything that we are doing, help us never to undermine Your ability, Your power, Your glory, help us never to look down on You. Help us never to blaspheme Your Name O Lord.

28.       Father Lord we pray that may You always guide our thoughts, our actions, our hearts O Lord, may You hold us steadfastly, let us not run away. Let us not stray away.

29.       If there be any who has strayed before, bring the person back. If You did not have Your thoughts towards that person, You will not mention that person.

30.       Father Lord, this message, we pray that may You by Yourself, relay it to our brother Ngosike, and our sister Okike, that may You bring this same Spirit that is in us, that You have wrought in us this morning, this same Spirit that the message has wrought in us, this revival, may You wrought it in his own heart O Lord, may it go back to them.

31.       May he remember that You are the One still holding him. May he remember that You are the reason he is still alive and You are not yet done with him. And that You have not given up on him, if not You will not be mentioning him. May he realise that You still love him and You want him to come back.

32.       Father Lord, this love You have given us this morning, please extend it to our first son and our sister, even to all our brethren wherever they are.

33.       Father Lord, You have shown us that Yes, we are Heavenly bound brethren. You have shown Apostle Ojiakor that he is surrounded by Heavenly bound brethren. You have answered his prayer, You have shown him that he is surrounded by heavenly bound brethren and that Your Word can go forth from his house, from his family, even reviving Your people, You have revived us.

34.       We are now feeling what You and Your family are always feeling at Nsugbe O Lord. We are now feeling it and we pray that may it be so in other families that are connected to You. In every family that is praying to be connected to You, may You connect them.

35.       Father Lord, we pray that this love You have shown us, show it unto others. Restrict it not unto us. Father Lord, other people, they want it too. They are praying for it, not that we deserve it.

36.       Please extend it to our brethren, extend it to all of them. And help us that our own will not be lost, that may we not lose our own. May we not lose our own even unto eternity.

37.       No matter anything that happens, may we hold unto this love You have given us, may this Your love see us through even unto the end. Father Lord, it is clear that You have always been with us right from time and You are proving it everyday. Father Lord, we are most grateful, our hearts are full of joy.

38.       We pray O Lord, that this good work You have started, may You never go back. May You complete it to the fullest. You are not a God of unfinished project.

39.       Now we have seen the foundation, we have seen decking, we have seen the tower, it is rising. Father Lord, You are not a God of any unfinished project.

40.       We have seen it, we have entered inside the house, we can touch the walls of the house. This house You are building, we can touch the walls, it is You, Master Planner, You cannot start and You go back.

41.       And this is our Faith, this is our hope in You, our Faith, which You have given us, which is as a result of Your love, we are most grateful.

42.       Father Lord, if we start talking about Your love, Your mercies, we will keep talking about it till eternity. Father Lord, what we have heard today, may it guide us throughout today, throughout this week, throughout this year, and even unto eternity. Help us to have this Word in our hearts, may it remain in our hearts.

43.       Father Lord, continue to remind us, as You have reminded us today, continue to remind us on a daily basis, on a weekly basis, continue to remind us, continue to revive us, continue to reignite the fire in our hearts, continue to fan the flame of Your Spirit in our hearts, even unto eternity O Lord. We are now rejoicing in Your salvation.

44.       We have experienced what is joy of salvation. Help us, let it not go away. Continue to uphold it. You are able, You are the Greatest, that is our assurance, our faith, our hope. You are able to uphold us.

45.       This thing You have started, You are able to finish it. At least we know that there is no going back and that is our assurance, that is our faith. We cannot perish again.

46.       You have started it. So far as we are believing in You. So far as our faith is on, so far as our hope is on You, nothing can happen again. Once our faith is on You, once a man puts his faith in You, that man is unstoppable.There is nothing that is impossible before You.

47.       And we pray O Lord this day, this prayer, that may our faith never go away from You. May our faith be upon You even unto eternity.

48.       For it is that faith that shall translate us, that faith that shall save us, there is no salvation without faith. It is not by anything we have done.

49.       It is that faith that shall activate Your Word in our lives, faith we have in You. It is that faith we have in You that shall give us Your righteousness. And O Lord, we have experienced that faith and we pray that may You never take it away from us.

50.       It is You that has given us that faith, it is You that has made it possible for us to have faith.

51.       Everything, all the Glory,  all the Thanksgiving, Adoration, Power, Might, Reverence, everything that is worthy to be given unto the Greatest Being in the whole universe, we give You everything this day.

52.       Father Lord, what You have started in us, may You finish it O Lord, may You continue it even unto eternity O Lord. All this and many more we pray through Peter Christ Mighty Name. Amen!!!

 

SECTION II

LET NO GAP BE FOUND BETWEEN YOU AND GOD

PREACHED ON WEDNESDAY, 15TH JULY 2020

EVENING WORSHIP

AT APOSTLE OJIAKOR’S FAMILY, ENUGU

BY

BROTHER JOSEPH OJIAKOR

EVERY DAY BRINGS US CLOSEST-NOT CLOSER-BUT CLOSEST TO THE D-DAY. DO NOT ALLOW THESE BLESSINGS WE ARE ENJOYING AT THIS CLOSING HOUR TO DISTRACT OUR ATTENTION.

 

THE GREATEST MAINFESTATION OF LOVE IS FORGIVENESS. PREACHED 28TH JUNE,2015.Pg.22 Vs.2


1

CLOSE RANKS WITH GOD

 Remain blessed brethren. We are still going to continue with the message TIME FOR SELF EVALUATION. volume 1. Preached on 5th October, 2014. Page 106 vs 8.

2.           Do not live in your past reputation, what? Do not live in your past reputation, praise God. Put them in remembrance. Do not live in your past reputation, stop and think about your present life right now.

3.           Don't live in your past reputation, stop and think about your present life right now, because if you do not do it, this prophecy will take you unawares; Draw closer to God. Do what? Draw closer to God.

4.           Maintain the vine branch relationship with God. He is the vine and you are His branches. Who can remember the scripture we read in the morning? John chapter 15 verse 4 to 5. Let that scripture be our memory verse.

5.           We also talked about memory verse so that we will be remembering it always. Maintain the vine branch relationship. Do not allow any gap to exist between you and Him. Close ranks with God. Close ranks with your father, with your parents.

6.           Let there be no gap. The way the church should not allow any gap to exist between the church and God, that is the way the father should not allow any gap to exist between the children, or even between him and the children, or even between him and the wife. No gap should exist in the family at all.

7.           Let no drop of water be found between you and Him; before you know it, it will increase. There is a saying that little drops of water form an ocean.

8.           It is better not to allow the water to drop at all, use aradite (adhesive) and seal the place.

9.           If not from dropping, gradually, it will increase in speed, from dropping to rushing. To stop it becomes difficult. Once it starts rushing, no going back.

10.       Once there is a crack on the foundation of a building, before you know it, due to other factors, the crack will increase and then the building will collapse.

11.       So do not allow any gap to be found between you and God. Do not allow any water to drop. Remember the devil is not happy.

12.       If you are very close to God, with a pure mind, a genuine motive, God will bless you. Remember God said there are some people rallying around Him, coming close to Him but not with pure mind and pure motive.

13.       Those are the people that always come around once a bad thing happens, but once a good thing happens, they will not like to know it. We heard it in the tape. He said they are not happy that something good happened.

14.       So let your closeness to God be with a genuine heart, a genuine motive, that you want to receive blessings from God through His Word. That you want to receive wisdom from God. So do not allow any gap to be found between you and God.

15.       If God looks sideways, the first person He will bless is one that is close to Him with a genuine heart and pure motive. If He looks, He will say; "My brother we have been suffering together, we have been travelling together, come, I will bless you."

16.       Okay let us bring it down, whenever the Son of Man is travelling, He will call Pastor Thomas to accompany Him. This is because he has given himself willingly.

17.       Have you seen it now? He will not choose anybody that will be dragging his feet, or complaining or murmuring in his heart. No!

18.       God said that before we give offering, we should first of all, give our hearts to God, give yourself fully to God. So if you have not given yourself to God, your offering is useless. God does not need your money.

19.       God does not need your yam tuber, God does not need your corn or maize, as long as your heart is not yet right with God, as long as you have not yet given yourself over to God.

20.       And if you have not given yourself over to God, it means you have given yourself over to the devil. There are no two ways about it. It is either God or devil.

21.       The Son of Man taught us about the law of diametrical opposition. Two things are there; we have up and down, right and left, God or devil. So it is either you are with God or with the devil.

22.       It is now left for us to ask ourselves; who am I with? Who am I connected to? At every point in your life, there is someone filling that gap.

23.       It is either the devil or God. You cannot be lukewarm. You cannot be in the middle, worshipping God and devil at the same time. It is either God or the devil. Are we getting the message? Let us go ahead.

24.       Do not allow your thoughts to lead you into sinful desires. We are always in a battle, every second of our life.

25.       The devil will bring that thought and put it into you, into your heart, when you nurture that thought, it will work out, you see yourself doing that evil thing.

26.       But if you say no, you have resisted the devil. Daddy has taught us this times without number. Whenever it comes, shout! Evangelist Chibuikem also said it there at Nsugbe, that when he was in school and a contrary thought comes, he will just shout “Get out!”

27.       The heart is very deceitful but we can control it. God has given us the power over everything. The Son of Man said we are Gods. But our problem is that we nurture the evil thoughts that creep into our hearts, when we do that, we now start doing evil things.

28.       When we do evil things, we cannot be Gods anymore because God cannot sin. God cannot commit iniquity.

29.       Let no drop of water be found between you and Him; before you know it, it will increase.

30.       Do not allow your thoughts to lead you into sinful desires, but give yourself wholly to God. I want you to think about your life, do you really give yourself wholly to God and you are not able to produce truth at the appointed time?

31.       Have you ever asked yourself that question? What I am saying is that if any error is in your life, stop and think about it. This is the conclusion of the whole matter.

32.       Let me repeat. Do not allow your thoughts to lead you into sinful desires, but give yourself wholly to God. I want you to think about your life, do you really give yourself wholly to God and you are not able to produce truth at the appointed time?

33.       Have you ever asked yourself that question? What I am saying is that if any error is in your life, stop and think about it.

34.       How will you know that there is error in your life? When the Word of God is going forth, you will know. As long as you are a seed of God and you have a living conscience.

35.       God said whenever you are in the fellowship, and ministration is going on, try and hear your name in that message. Try and see yourself in that message.

36.       As long as God has said it, there is no message that you will lift up, where you will not hear your name. Because God is talking to us. He is not talking to people outside.

37.       But when a brother or a sister is mentioned, your mind goes away from the message and focuses on that brother or sister, you will not learn anything there. The reason God gives us those stories is so that we learn from that person's experience.

38.       But we now hold on to that person's report or chapter, and then we will be doing all those things in Romans Chapter 1 verse 28; that is malice, God-hating, envy, hatred, murder, evil spirit, greed. All these things will now be coming out from you.

39.       That person may have been justified by God. You knew when he failed, did you know when he got up? The scriptures are there so that people will fulfill the scriptures. 

40.       That Romans chapter 1 verse 28 must be fulfilled by someone. If these things do not happen, how can the scriptures be fulfilled?

41.       This is why you have to be conscious at all times to guard your heart, and He has already given us this statement now that we should not allow the thoughts of our hearts to lead us into sinful desires.

42.       There is something I want us to learn in this family. Always speak positively. Always do what? Speak positively. Confess positively  no matter the situation. God is alive.

43.       We are serving a God of impossibilities. He said “Do not be dismayed, I am with you. Lo, I am with you always.”

44.       God gave us a secret, that whenever you are worried or troubled, you do not know what to do anymore, go to the library, pick up a message. Close your eyes, use your left hand, pick up a message.

45.       Do not select. Just put your hand and pick a message. Your problem will be settled.

46.       He gave us another secret, that whenever we appear to be confused, we should go to the Great Sermon and Holy Spirit Inspired Epistles. The Great Sermon is our Bible.

 

 

ANYBODY THAT IS A CHILD OF GOD ALWAYS DESIRES TO MAKE THE WORD OF GOD STAND. IF YOU ARE A TRUE SEED OF GOD, YOUR SOLE AIM IS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE WORD OF GOD IS FULFILLED AND STANDS SURE AT ALL TIMES. ONCE YOU REALIZE THIS, THEN YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE A SEED OF GOD.

UNTIL YOU TAKE A DECISION, GOD WILL NOT HELP YOU

 

G

od has given us everything. When we say God has given us everything, there is nothing else left to preach. It is just to put us in remembrance and encourage one another.

2.           There is nothing you will look for pertaining to life that you will not see in the messages.

3.           Whether it is marriage, family life, occupation, progressive life examination, youthful exuberances, God Head, God is a man, prophecies. God has given us everything.

4.           Now we have known all these, can God make a statement concerning you and say that, "Yes, this boy is my son, this girl is my daughter, this lady is my daughter, this woman is my daughter, this man is my son, this man is my brother?"

5.           Can God make that statement about you? Can He make that statement about me? Has God known you? You are following God, does God know that you are following Him?

6.           If any error is in your life, can be detected in your life, in my life, you should do what? Stop and think about it.

7.           Do not carry it over! You can never play smartness on this matter, no cunningness there. After all said and done, that spot is still there.

8.           If someone pours water on this table, if nobody dries it, it will still be there. It will not dry by itself. Go back, run around it, do eye service however you want, that water is still there waiting for you.

9.           If there is a spot or an error in your life, no matter how we talk from today till tomorrow, no matter how you dodge it, that spot is still there until you clean it.

10.       It is not when you do something wrong, then I will be the one to correct that mistake for you. No, you are the one to correct that error.

11.       The highest I will do for you is to encourage you, give you the Word, pray for you. That is the highest I will do for you. You are now the one to take that decision.

12.       All we have been talking about boils down to decision. Decision is the power of life. And that is why when you listen to someone praying, he will say; "GOD, THOSE THAT HAVE TAKEN THAT DECISION TO CHANGE, GIVE THEM A HELPING HAND."

13.       Why do you think that statement is found in almost every prayer. The Son of Man has prayed it, Apostle Chukwudi has prayed it, Pastor Wisdom has prayed it, daddy has prayed it, Sam has prayed it, I have prayed it, even you have prayed it.

14.       SO YOU CAN SEE THAT UNTIL YOU TAKE A DECISION TO CHANGE, GOD WILL NOT HELP YOU.

15.       No matter the way you may try to play smartness, what awaits you is there waiting for you. Am I telling lies?

16.       I went to market yesterday to buy a little meat for the family, and the butcher was trying to fool himself, cutting the thing in small, small lumps and littering it in the table.

17.       I said; "My friend, if I purchase one kg, scatter it on top of the whole tables, it is still one kg. The way you scatter it will not add, will not subtract." So heap it together let me see the size.

18.       Run away from God and He will run away from you. God is far from the wicked but He hears the prayers of the righteous. When was this message preached? This message was preached on 5th October, 2014.

19.       The Son of Man packed into His house at Nsugbe on the 1st of October, 2014. Then at Onitsha fellowship, on Sunday, 5th October, 2014, He preached this message. And this message is just like that family altar message.

20.       IF YOU DISTANCE YOURSELF FROM GOD, GOD WILL DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM YOU. THEN THE GAP WILL INCREASE. IF YOU WERE WALKING WITH GOD, AND YOU NOW TURN TO THE LEFT, GOD WILL TURN TO THE RIGHT.

21.       God does not want to have anything to do with the devil because you have given yourself over to the devil.

22.       He will give you a big gap and He told us this evening that you should not allow any gap to be found between you and God, between me and God.

23.       Now He said you should draw near. The life you are living, is it drawing you closer to God or is it driving you away from Him? Why is the Church like this?

24.       Is the life you are living drawing you closer to God? Remember, He said you will choose your own master.

25.       Now the choice you made is it drawing you closer to God or is it driving you away from God? Why is the Church like this, because you are very far away from God.

26.       Is the life you are living now drawing you away from God or drawing you closer to Him? "Draw me closer, draw me closer, Lord; draw me nearer, nearer to thee"

27.       This is the plea of a son born in the family, that does the will of the father. An evil man runs away when there is nothing pursuing him but where will a man run to and God will not catch you?

28.       Running away from God means fooling yourself. Keep on running, run to the valley, run to the mountain, run to the wilderness; He has not yet remembered you.

29.       When He remembers you, when the cup of the Amorites is full, it will be poured away. What am I saying brethren?

30.       If you are running away from God, you are running away from His blessings and protection, for the message we received from the Son of Man approved of what God said, "To be far from God is to be far from His blessings and protection."

31.       Maintain a healthy relationship! Is your relationship with Christ healthy or unhealthy? Is it strained or is it friendly? Stop and think.

32.       Are you nearer to Him that has called you to salvation and glory or are you far from Him? Stop and think.

33.       Any child that does a good thing draws closer to his father, but an evil child runs away from the family. And the more he runs away from the family, the more he deprives himself of the blessings of the family. Is it a lie?

34.       You can only be remembered when you are close. I have said it, that God will first bless that person that is close to Him.

35.       Let us strive to be close to God. Close that gap. But if you are not seen around, a little while you will be forgotten.

36.       Let us use mummy as an example. That day mummy did not fellowship at Onitsha, The Son of Man said; "Sister Ojiakor is conspicuously absent." If they look for you and do not see you, they will know that something is wrong.

37.       He said we should live our lives not to impress, but we should live our lives to have a positive impact anywhere we go, so that when we leave, our absence will be felt.

38.       They will be saying; "How I wish that this person is around, how I wish that Juby is around, how I wish that Ebuka is around." Have you seen it? Let it be our testimony. 

39.       If that person is always doing evil things, will they be saying; "how I wish that person is around?" They will be saying; “Get away from here! What are you doing here?” They will be waiting for you to leave.

40.       The question is: have you really thought about your condition right now, whether you are getting closer to God or you are far away from Him?

41.       If you know you have heard your name in this message, say "Amen." Thank you. It is very, very important. You and I must make the decision.  ...But those that are still going back to their evil ways, they are still saying they do not care, unrepentant, obstinate transgressors, God will say; "Punish them the more."

42.       You will see that person becoming worse. The person will be worse than he was. Have you seen it now? Who must make that decision? You and I. Personalize it immediately.

43.       This is where we will stop. There is nothing else I want to say. Okay, but before then, there is something I want to read from the message; YOU ARE THE NEXT TO DIE. VOLUME 2. From page 116 from verse 42.

44.       As long as I have not pulled the curtain across, I will never cease from talking to you. Can somebody say "Amen?" Somebody say "Thank You Lord." Is it not one that is loved that is being corrected? Did you get the message?

45.       As long as I have not drawn the curtain concerning the individual; as long as I have not closed the chapter where the name and activity of the individual is written, it is still open.

46.       If I say, "On this note, we draw the curtain for today", it then means we have closed. As long as I have not drawn the curtain as I have drawn the curtain as I have drawn in the case of Brother Ben Mbah; the curtain is drawn. But whether in favour or against, we shall know with time.

47.       It is a two-way thing. You might be doing good, and God has not closed your chapter. But when you start boasting that you did this and that, that you are too good, you are doing good, taking the glory and not giving it to God, God can anoint you falsely because of that. And He will still write it because your chapter is not yet closed. 

48.       Brethren! Do you know I love you more than you love Me? Too many of you are so bad that God had given you the opportunity, no enemy will stand on your way. Your so-assumed enemies will be victims. You will execute all. Is it a lie?

49.       The little opportunity that was given to the little girl, what did she demand for? The head of John the Baptist. [Mark 6:24]

50.       Lastly, let us read the UNRECOGNIZED MESSIAH OF OUR DAY. VOLUME ONE. Preached on 12th January, 2020. Page 24 verse 35 and 36.

51.       I have loved you. I have even given you everything. I have even done something I should not have done, to make sure you are saved. But at the end of the day, many of you have taken it for granted.

52.       Some think maybe I have another motive. May God punish Me if I do anything out of impure motive. I have done everything to show you the hardest love, that you might be saved.

53.       On this note, I say thank You and remain blessed in Him eternally.
