INTRODUCTION

PRAYER

1.           Let us bow down our heads.

2.           Our Dear Heavenly Father, here we are tonight, praising and adoring you, worshipping you O God, lavishly from the bottom of our heart; giving you O God, the whole respect, praise, worship, adoration, exaltation, and recognizing your majesty, for you are worthy to receive all for your names sake. 

3.           You have done great and marvelous things for us which we cannot even rehearse with our mouths. They are so innumerable that there is no scroll here on earth that can contain them.

4.           Even if the ocean will be ink Father, it is not enough to use to write. Let the whole world be parchment, we cannot write your love, for it is too much.

5.           Father, truly speaking, we are astonished. We are amazed at what you have done for us and the ones you have already purposed to do, all for your name’s sake.

6.           It is not because we are anything at all, but simply because you have decided to make us holy in your own eyes and allowed us to stand before your presence without a single fault.

7.           Father, because it is your unfailing plan that we shall, at the end, be with you eternally. For that reason, you made an everlasting atonement and an everlasting propitiation Father, for the sins we have not even committed.

8.           When we have not even come into existence, you took into consideration and placed the sacrifice there as advanced payment for all our sins, knowing how frail human beings are; knowing, O God, how weak we are.

9.           Knowing that mortal man must surely sin according to Thy Word, for there is no righteous man that sinneth not, for if you are to count iniquity, nobody can stand in your presence.

10.       That is why, O God, you said that as far as the east is from the west, so far have you removed our transgressions for your name’s sake, not because of what we have done.

11.       For your name’s sake, you said you have recognized that we are mere mortals. We are mere flesh. And the Almighty cannot begin to wrestle with the flesh Father, for the flesh profiteth nothing.

12.       For that reason, O God, you decided to justify us in the spirit and not in the flesh, for since the world began no man has ever been justified by the deeds of the flesh. Rather, you have justified all by the spirit.

13.       If Abraham was to be justified by the flesh, he was a sinful man, for he neglected your instructions and left the Canaan land and went to Egypt. All his sons and daughters did the same thing, but your covenant O God, covered them.

14.       That covenant is ours this day, for THE SON OF MAN has appeared as the Resurrected Body, renewing the covenant and confirming the Promise that was made unto the fathers which the law that came 430 years after never cancelled, and will never cancel, for it is an eternal and solemn Promise which you must redeem.

15.       Father, we thank you for counting us worthy to be the beneficiaries. Moreso, when we have observed and believed and we are convinced and sure that we are the first fruits.

16.       We are the first fruits, for onto us God first revealed Himself. Unto us God first appeared to take for Himself a people from everywhere. Father, we are resident with you here. We are domiciled here with you.

17.       We have gathered to listen to You talk to us. There is no other reason why we are here if not to improve our spiritual life, so that we will leave right with You and walk right with You.

18.       Consider us through the spirit and look away from the flesh for the flesh is petty. The flesh is earthly. The flesh is mortal. The flesh will perish in the world. The flesh is temporary.  What we are having as flesh is a temporary nest. Our eternal habitation remains our spirit.

19.       May our spirit be always willing to obey and always willing to do you a service according to Thy will. May we never depart from you spiritually. No matter what the flesh is saying, Father, ignore all, for by the deeds of the flesh, You said, shall no man be justified. Consider the Spirit.

20.       Let the yearnings of our spirit tonight be that You revive our spirit that we will leave with You eternally. Justify us.

21.       As we gather tonight, having identified with us in our praises and in our worship, Father identify with us also, and remain with us even till the end of the world according to thy promise. Save us to the utmost.

22.       We are praying for ourselves here and our family annexes. Father, one in Bonny in Rivers state; The second in Lagos, and the third in Nsukka. We bring them to this Fold.

23.       There are others, O God, who are members of this Family. We bring before your focus the Ojiakors at Enugu, the Moses’ family at Nsukka, the family of Umezuluike that is in the Faith.

24.       Notably, NnekaUmezuluike and the few that have believed in her. And those that decided to take refuge under her canopy.

25.       Father, if Rahab could, because of a covenant, bring in many people at your command, even people that knew you not, people that never knew about the covenant believed Rahab, as many as will believe in her report and run to her for refuge, Father, save all of them when you are saving her and her family.

26.       So it is with all the families I mentioned there. We have not forgotten other erstwhile families that are members of this family.

27.       See Bro Loveday, our elder there. wherever he is, bring him into the Fold together with the whole household.

28.       Father there are too many others. I will not name all of them, lest I provoke many.

29.       I have not forgotten Deacon John Onyia and the family. Father, these people they are there.

30.       All our students, all those students, Father, they are working for this Faith, being led by the Deacon there, Bro David Mbah, being a notable member of this family as he leads the team of transcribers, translators, proof readers, O LORD, remember their works for good and not for evil.

31.       All the Ministers scattered everywhere, even those that are in faraway countries, O God, who have believed in THE SON OF MAN and are helping to spread this Gospel, Father, bring them under the umbrella of THE SON OF MAN

32.       Save all the Elect. I do not care wherever they may be. Whatever that may be their weaknesses and their transgressions, Father, if you could listen to the voice of a king Hezekiah, a king who was holding animal blood, animal blood was his justification, he stood there and defied the law and declared all priests cleansed, ordered them to enter the temple and offer the sacrifice.

33.       And you accepted, Father even his deed and you marked it perfect for you conferred him with absolute authority in his day.

34.       Now, O God all Authority in Heaven, on earth and beneath the earth has been conferred on the Son of Man to take charge of all Creations, and to take charge of everything;

35.       And He has been conferred with absolute authority that whatever He sets free, shall be free in heaven and free here on earth. Whatever He binds here remains bound here and hereafter.

36.       Father, I stand upon that commission, upon that Authority and set every Elect free.

37.       Wherever they may be, do not accept any accusation coming to You from the devil against any of them.

38.       Whatever might be the transgression, Father, I declare all forgiven, null and void, not only now even throughout eternity, for this is the only way I can dwell with you and with all of them as angels who will help Me to judge the whole earth.

39.       Father, if you are to count iniquities, who is adequate to stand before you? We give you the praise tonight. Cleanse our hearts from every evil conscience.

40.       Let your love dwell richly in all of us. May your love and mercy, O God Father, suffice for judgment.

41.       Never bring any of your Elect to judgment. Father, I stand here and make it a decree that as many as are saying Amen here and all that are connected to this Family, may they all be first souls that will taste Paradise, so that the entire world will know that absolute Authority is conferred upon THE SON OF MAN to bring into Paradise anybody He wishes.

42.       To your Name, O God, we give the Glory. Give us, O God, attentive ears, obedient spirits, obedient hearts.

43.       As your Word will go forth tonight, let your Word search out all the Brethren who are desirous of eternal life. Sink this Word into their hearts.

44.       We give you the praise. We give you the honour. We say a big THANK YOU. If we have anything higher than THANK YOU, we will offer it.

45.       Thank you for answering our prayers and lead us into the land of truth. Reveal, O Lord, the hour and the Word of Eternal life to us, and help us to live by the Word, for your name’s sake. Amen.

I AM GOD:

THERE IS NO OTHER[1]


 



Be seated everybody. I hope you are happy. I hope you are happy. I hope you are not paying lip service to it. I am overjoyed.

2.           If it were possible, I would have clustered all the Brethren here or in the whole premises. But it is not possible anymore.

3.           There can never be anything called Camp Meeting again, when you know that many cannot see My face again until we meet in Paradise. They will be hearing My Voice from afar.

4.           Are you not a wonderful people, privileged to be romancing with him, having everything in common with him morning, afternoon and night? No leave. No transfer. I say, no leave. No transfer.

5.           There are too many people that are longing to see My face. Some are longing to hear My Voice real, but they are only reading from the Messages.

6.           This is because the entire world has been longing for the advent of THE SON OF MAN. And at last, He appeared in one of the jungles [in Africa] where they cannot venture into.

7.           When they were about to make their ways to Onitsha in search of THE SON OF MAN, the Lord blocked all of them using COVID-19 lockdown. And they are there trusting God that I know they are there. They know that I am here.

8.           And I remain the only Voice that will be passed here and it will go round the globe. In less than twenty-four hours, the Voice goes round the globe. The lightning that flashes from the east and shines to the west. Amen.

9.           Tonight, while you give Me attention, I want to dwell on the topic I touched in the morning briefly. It is good I touched it. It is good also that you never recorded it.

10.       If you had recorded it, I would not have been tempted to go the way I am going tonight because I met you in the morning Family Altar at the mid and then began to talk. And all of you were astonished, for which cause nobody could remember he was there with the handset.

11.       This is because what you were hearing was very much thrilling. Everywhere was chilled. I saw the way you were turning the Scriptures and re-examining what you were reading to know whether you have read it before. This is because the hour for it has not yet come until now.

12.       So, take your jotter. While using your heart, use your jotter also. I am about to take off and God is here with us. Be fast in turning the pages of the Bible so that we can go to bed in good time, unless you want to have a night vigil.

13.       I am equally here because I told you I am back. I have bounced back. So Brethren have been writing and praising God on my behalf, for bringing Me back. They said, “I am vibrating.” I said. “I am not only vibrating. I am reverberating at the same time.”

14.       They said that the Bride has woken up from slumber hearing the Voice yesterday that kept them awake for eight consecutive hours.

15.       My daughter, Onyedika was commending me this night and she said, “Daddy, I felt like flying in the sky. Throughout today in my office, my earphone remained in my ears as I continued listening to the Message. Daddy! Daddy! You are wonderful.” The husband, the same thing.

16.       Our Sister, NnekaUmezuluike was full of appreciation. Bro Ojiakor shouted and shouted and shouted. Bro John said, in short, that he nearly fainted. He said that he vowed he must finish it. And he finished it before taking it to the family.

17.       From that night they received it, they vowed they will never sleep. They said that this is the correct Message, for they read books, but the Message came from Onitsha. It came from this family.

18.       EVERY DAY, THEY ARE WAITING FOR IT BECAUSE THEY ARE CONNECTED WITH THIS FAMILY. I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT OTHERS, BUT I KNOW ABOUT THE FEW.

19.       Now, do not allow sleep to ever rob you of this Message. Let us consider the Book of Isaiah chapter 45 verse 22.

20.       [22]Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.KJV

21.       [22]Look to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. AMP

22.       [22]Let all the world look to me for salvation! For I am God; there is no other.LBI am God. Besides Me, there is no other.

23.       [22]“Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.NIV

24.       [22]Turn to me now and be saved people all over the world for I am the only God there is.GNB I AM THE ONLY GOD THERE IS. Amen!

25.       I mean, this is the introduction. I say, this is the introduction. I have introduced the Person that gathered us here, and the reason why we accepted to honour His invitation.

26.       Did you get the invitation? Come to Me, all the ends of the earth; all the people on earth. All human beings that are desiring salvation, come to Me. Come to Me. Did you get the message?

27.       Now I will show you another Scripture. I will balance it immediately. Gospel according to saint John chapter 5 verse 39 through 40. [39]“You search the Scriptures, for you believe they give you eternal life. …

28.       You search the Scriptures, for you believe the Scriptures you are searching will give you eternal life. Eternal life means salvation. The completeness of salvation is eternal life.

29.       And the Scriptures point to me! [40]Yet you won’t come to me so that I can give you this eternal life!LB

30.       Yet you would not come to Me that I can give you this Eternal Life you are looking for, for which cause you are turning the pages of the Bible.

31.       Remember where we read Isaiah 45 verse 22. Come to me! Direct invitation. Let him that heareth say come. Is it true? [Revelation 22:17]

32.       Do you desire salvation? Do you want salvation? The invitation says, “Come! Come to me!” It is an invitation. Anybody can come. Come to Me if you want salvation, all the ends of the earth.

33.       All the inhabitants of the earth, come to Me, for I am God that giveth salvation.I am God that giveth salvation. Did you get the message?

34.       Besides me there is no other. Whatever book you are going to read will point you to Me. Whatever you are going to read in any book concerning salvation which is eternal life, will point you to Me.

35.       Whether you read the Bible, or you read the Book of Enoch, or you read the Quran, or you read the Torah, or you read from Shinto, or you read the Hindu, I do not care. Even the Book of Mormons or the Book of Jasher.

36.       ALL OF THEM WILL POINT YOU TO ME, FOR I AM THE ONLY SOVEREIGN GOD. IN HIM [IN GOD] IS ETERNAL LIFE. ONLY IN HIM DWELLETH IMMORTALITY. IS IT SCRIPTURAL? [John 3:15; John 17:3; 1 John 5:20]

37.       APART FROM THE LIVING GOD, THE CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, THERE IS NO OTHER PLACE WHERE YOU CAN GO AND SEE OR GET IMMORTALITY.

38.       Come to Me all ye inhabitants of the earth. Come to me all ye IN the world that are desiring eternal life, for I am God.

39.       What was the problem with the Jews? You are a man and you maketh yourself God. You are a mere man. How comes it that you claim to be God.

40.       [John 10:33]The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we stone thee not, but for blasphemy and because thou, being a man, makest thyself God.”KJV You see how they missed it? Amen.

41.       Remember it is teaching. Try to catch Me along the way.You turn over the Scriptures. Who is saying this? The Lord Jesus Christ. If the Lord Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, who is He? Is the Almighty God not the Alpha and Omega? Is He not the beginning and the end? Who is He?

42.       [Revelation 1:8 – 9]“I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE ENDING,” saith the Lord, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.

43.       I, John, who also am your brother and companion in tribulation and in the Kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the isle that is called Patmos, for the Word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. KJV

44.       It was because saint Paul preached him as God. That was why he was misunderstood and was persecuted without measure. Amen. [2 Timothy 2:8 – 9]Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my Gospel,  wherein I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even unto bonds. But the Word of God is not bound. KJV

 

45.       John 5:39 – 40. [39]You search and investigate and pore over the Scriptures diligently, because you suppose and trust that you have Eternal Life through them. And these [very Scriptures] testify about Me! [40]And still you are not willing but refuse to come to Me, so that you might have life. AMP

46.       [39]Search ye the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. [40]And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. KJV

47.       [39]You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, [40]yet you refuse to come to me to have life.NIV

48.       [39]“You study the Scriptures, because you think that in them you will find eternal life. And these very Scriptures speak about me! [40]Yet you are not willing to come to me in order to have life. GNB

49.       Good! I hope you are following. Are you following? If you go to the Book of Revelation chapter 22 verse 17, it says, “The Spirit and the Bride say come. And let him that hears, say come.” Who is giving the invitation? Come and take the water of life freely. Look at him here.

50.       Where we started in Isaiah 45 verse 22. Come to Me! Come to Me! Direct invitation. Come to Me! Stop wallowing in ignorance. Stop searching the Scriptures. Stop reading curious books. Stop any other research. Stop investigation. Come to Me!

51.       When you come to Me, I will make the whole thing very easy for you. Come to Me. Why will someone abandon the road and wander in the bush? Whatever that person is looking for, is it important to him?

52.       Isaiah 45:22. [22]Let all the world look to me for salvation! For I am God; there is no other.LB

53.        [22]Look to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. AMP

54.       Do you believe that Jesus Christ is Almighty God? The Bible said, “God gave proof that he is Almighty God, by giving him the power to resurrect from the dead. [1 Corinthians 6:14; Philippians 3:10]

55.       TONIGHT, WHO IS TALKING TO US? The resurrected body. Am I making sense?

56.       I want you to pay strict attention. Teaching makes us strong. I say teaching makes us strong.

57.       Now the invitation came to you and you responded, simply because you want eternal life. And you have come to the source. You have come to Him who holds eternal life.

58.       All you have to do is to relax and hear Him, for this is My well Beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased. Hear ye Him all that desire eternal life. Amen.

59.       We know that THE SON OF MAN has appeared and has given us the understanding to know He that is true. We are in Him that is true, even THE SON OF MAN Himself. This man is what? This man is the True God and also Eternal Life.

60.       When you read it in the Scripture the Bible said, “We know that Christ has come. And has given us the understanding to recognize, welcome, receive Him that is true. We are now in him that is true even in his son, THE SON OF MAN in our own day.”

61.       He was THE SON OF MAN that day. He is still THE SON OF MAN today. “This man is the True God and also Eternal Life.” Amen. [1 John 5:20]

                                                             2

I AM GOD:

THERE IS NO OTHER [2]

 

This introduction is all you need. You can now boldly say, “I am not an intruder.” I heard him say, “Come! All the ends of the earth; All inhabitants of the world, and as many as need eternal life, you need salvation.”

2.           I heard, and I responded, “Sir, I am here because you called me.” And when He called, as many as He called, He justifies. AS MANY AS HE JUSTIFIES FOR RESPONDING TO THE CALL, HE PLACES THEM IN THE HEAVENLY DIGNITY. Is that not true? Is it not Scripture?

3.           In the Book of Romans chapter 8:29 – 30 [Amplified version], whoever that God calls, remember the calling. He will first of all foreordain you, whoever he predestinated. Is it not true?

4.           Whoever He foreordained, them He called. When He called them and they responded, He justifies them, declares them not guilty of anything called sin, places them in right standing with Himself, raising them to a state of Heavenly Dignity, for they have passed from hell to heaven. They have crossed over. Did you get it? I told you I have bounced back. Amen.

5.           SONG: [I am He that liveth and was dead. And behold, I am alive forever more. Come unto Me O ye nations and be saved, for I am He that liveth and was dead.] Somebody say, AMEN!!!

6.           SONG: [I am just a pilgrim here. I am going home. One day, I take my cross, go home to rest. And with the angels there, we gonna sing redemption song. And then we over. I am going home.

7.           I am born again. I am going home. One day, I take my cross, go home to rest. And with the angels there, we gonna sing redemption song. And then we over. I am going home.] Amen. It is wonderful. It is glorious.

8.           Now He predestinated us and foreordained us before the world began that we may, O! be conformed to His own image and that there would not be any other people greater than those surrounding THE SON OF MAN by believing Him and welcoming Him. Amen.

9.           I hope you are with Me. We are about to open up, but the introduction will continue a little while. Amen.

10.       You see in this pilgrim race, one thing is settled. We know the Captain of our salvation. We know who He is. And we are not drawing back anymore.

11.       It is becoming clearer every day that you are not the one that invited yourself. Somebody foreknew you. You were among those spirits that surrounded Him, that walked and talked with Him.

12.       That is why you are comprehending His Word. If you were not of His own sheep, you will not comprehend. The more you hear, the less you understand. And the more you see, the less you perceive, lest you will hear and understand, repent and your wilful rejection of truth will be forgiven you. [Isaiah 6:9; Matthew 13:13 – 14; Mark 4:12]

13.       NO TRUE SEED OF GOD WILFULLY REJECTS THE TRUTH. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. That is why, in this end time, everybody must be deceived except the Elect. I say, except the Elect. [Matthew 24:24]For there shall arise false christs and false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. KJV

14.       Why? The Lord God himself is in their midst. And He has become their righteousness and their holiness. Was He not the righteousness of the people of the Jews, for which cause Balaam could not place a curse on them?

15.       They were faultless in the sight of God because the Living God was found among them. His presence makes them holy. [Numbers 23:21]He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath He seen perverseness in Israel; the LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a King is among them. KJV

16.       When the holy God steps on a mountain the mountain becomes holy. If He steps into a house, “Peace be unto this house”, straight away, that house automatically becomes holy.

17.       That is why the Bible asked a question, “The temple and the Almighty God which one makes the other holy? And the Bible said, “The presence of God makes everything holy.” Amen. Christ makes everything right. Amen.

18.       I am here. No going back. I have made up my mind. No going back.

19.       Now, I want to introduce My topic. I will start with the prayer which the Lord Jesus Christ taught his disciples. Turn with Me to the Book of Mathew chapter 6 verse 9 through 13. Our Lord’s prayer. Pay attention!

20.       [9]This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our father in heaven: May your holy name be honoured; [10]may your Kingdom come; may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

21.       [11]Give us today the food we need. Forgive us the wrongs we have done, as we forgive the wrongs that others have done to us. Underline it!

22.       The secret of forgiveness lies in forgiving others. If you are not prepared to forgive any wrong done to you, God will never forgive you any. Take note of it.

23.       I do not care how many sins somebody has committed. God made it clear. How many sins will your neighbour, your brother, a human being commit against you in a day, and you will forgive. And He said, “Seventy times seven.” [Matthew 18:21 – 22]Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Until seven times?” And Jesus said unto him, “I say not unto thee, until seven times, but until seventy times seven. KJV

24.       Four hundred and ninety times a day. And you forgive him 490 times a day. Where sin abounds grace abounds more and more. Did you get the message? [Romans 5:20]Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound,…KJV

25.       SONG: [there is not a friend like the lowly Saviour. No, not one. No, not one. No sinner that comes that He will not take him. No, not one. No, not one. Alleluia!

26.       My God knows all about my struggles. He will guide me till my day is dawn. There is not a friend like the lowly Saviour. No, not one. No, not one.]

27.       Listen to Me. I am going to reveal a secret here tonight. Saint Paul revealed two ways God saves people. I will reveal more than that because I am the Almighty. I can do all things. And I take query from nobody. Amen.

28.       I am the Lord God Almighty. That is the Man Who said, “Come, I am God.” The giver of eternal life. Stop running to and fro. Stop disturbing yourself. What you are looking for in faraway countries is with you.

29.       Sit down as we continue to read. I will reveal many things in this small Message. [12]Forgive us the wrongs we have done, as we forgive the wrongs that others have done to us. …

30.       No matter your sin, you have not committed more than Zacchaeus. You have not committed more than Mary Magdalene. True or false? There are too many others like that.

31.       He that will forgive them and give them Eternal Life is here. He will set everything at naught, for the Bible said, “I am He that forgiveth your iniquities and your sins are remembered no more, for I have put all of them in My ocean of forgetfulness.” [Psalms 103:2–3Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits who forgiveth all thine iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases, KJV

32.        Matthew 9:6 In this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy nameKJV

33.       Luke 7:47 – 48 Therefore I say unto thee, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.”

 And He said unto her, “Thy sins are forgiven.”

34.       So for you to bring them out you must go to the ocean. When you get there, water has carried it, and you may not see it again. Why? It is under the cover of the blood that maketh an everlasting atonement.

35.       That is why I am here to redeem and to give full and complete salvation to those whosesins are under the cover of the blood and they are eagerly waiting for full and complete salvation.

36.       [Hebrews 9:28 AMP]Even so it is that Christ, having been offered to take upon Himself and bear as a burden the sins of many once and once for all, will appear a second time, not to carry any burden of sin nor to deal with sin, but to bring to full salvation those who are [eagerly, constantly, and patiently] waiting for and expecting Him.

37.       This is because this flesh is here groaning in pains and suffering what others are suffering. Amen.

38.       There is nobody under the cover of THE SON OF MAN that is suffering because of the sin you committed, for you are not a sinner under My umbrella.

39.       Let me tell you. You can never be under God’s umbrella and Baalam will see your faults and begin to place a curse. Never never!

40.       Even if he sees it and comes with the accusation, God will say, “I reject it. I can never admit it.” Who can bring anything to the charge of God’s own Elect? Will God bring anything to charge? Will Jesus Christ bring it? Who will bring it? Alleluia! [Romans 8:33]Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us?]KJV

41.       I want to show you why I am lamenting. I am lamenting for the sake of this Family. I said, “Allow Me to go home.” Now, I say to My family, “I will reveal the fullness of the secret about worshipping God in joy, worshipping God in the spirit and no longer counting on what the flesh will say again. Rubbish!”

42.       The power of sin is of the flesh. Sin has lost its power, for Christ has been revealed and accepted by every Elect. [1 Corinthians 15:56]The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.

43.       Then He [Christ] becomes your righteousness, your holiness, your justification, your sanctification, your salvation, your perfection, your peace. I say your peace and your eternal life.

44.       He that said, “Tell Eli Joe I said, “Come!”” Did He not see others? He that said, “Tell that Polycarp’s son whose name is Promise, “He said come.”” He that sent for them and said, “Come”, did He not see other youths?

45.       He that said, “Go and bring the one junior to Ugo, so that I will use him to provoke Ugo to jealousy”, did He not see others? Amen. Alleluia!

46.       SONG: [Today is the day of joy. Alleluia! Today is the day of joy. Every day is not for weeping.]

47.       [I know He Whom I am following. I know Whom I am following, for He is the Almighty God.]

48.       [My heart should not be troubled, for He that is guiding you knows the Way. My heart should not be troubled, for THE SON OF MAN knows where He is going.] Amen.

49.       [Alleluia! To Jehovah belongs all My praise. Alleluia! The Living God. Alleluia! To our God belongs all My praise. Alleluia! The Living God.]

KEEP WATCH AND PRAY [1]

 

We are still on. The Lord’s prayer; That is where I am starting. And from there, I will take My text. Amen.

2.           Matthew 6:9 – 13[9]This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our father in heaven: May your holy name be honoured; [10]may your kingdom come; may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

3.           [11]Give us today the food we need. [12]Forgive us the wrongs we have done, as we forgive the wrongs that others have done to us. [13]Do not bring us to hard testing, but keep us safe from the Evil One.’GNB

4.           Amen. Pay attention! Note! HARD TESTING. Another translation will call it temptation.

5.           [9]Pray, therefore, like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) be Your name. [10]Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. [11]Give us this day our daily bread.

6.           [12]And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven (left, remitted, and let go of the debts, and have given up resentment against) our debtors.

7.           [13]And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. AMP

8.           Note! temptation, not hard testing

9.           [9]“Pray along these lines: ‘Our Father in heaven, we honour your holy name. [10]We ask that your kingdom will come now. May your will be done here on earth, just as it is in heaven.

10.       [11]Give us our food again today, as usual, [12]and forgive us our sins, just as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us. [13]Don’t bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the Evil One. Amen.’ LB

11.       [9]After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. [10]Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. [11]Give us this day our daily bread.

12.       [12]And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. [13]And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thineis the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.KJV

13.       [9]“This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, [10]your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

14.       [11]Give us today our daily bread. [12]And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. [13]And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’ NIV

15.       This was how he taught them to pray in his first advent, after establishing the church. The disciples did not know how to pray. They said, “Master! Teach us how to pray.”

16.       He gave them a pattern of prayer, “This is how you should pray.” A pattern! But today, due to foolishness and ignorance, many recite verses of the Scripture and call it prayer.

17.       But the Bible made it clear, “Through prayers and supplications, you let God know your needs.” And said, “Be careful for nothing, but through prayers and supplication, let all your needs be made known to God. True or false? Amen. [Philippians 4:6]

18.       SONG: [Prayer is the Key. Prayer is the Key. Prayer is the Master Key. Saviourstarted with prayer, and ended with prayer. Prayer is the Master Key.]

19.       You see why even the Holy Quran enjoins us to establish regular prayers. [Surah 9:71; Surah 14:40]

20.       And the Bible says pray without ceasing. Pray at all times [1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV] Pray without ceasing.

21.       And I will show you why. The Lord taught them a pattern of prayer. He said “Pray that ye enter not into temptation.” [Matthew 26:41; Mark 14:38; Luke 22:40, 46 KJV] Pray, request God never to test you in a very hard way.

22.       AND I LOVE GOD FOR ONE THING. HE HAS MADE A PROMISE THAT HE WILL NEVER USE ANYTHING THAT IS GREATER THAN US TO TEST US. THERE IS NO TEST THAT WILL COME YOUR WAY THAT WILL BE GREATER THAN YOU. I AM GOING TO SOMETHING.

23.       God will not use or allow the use of anything that is greater than us to test our faith. Amen. No matter the way it comes, He is always there to proffer a remedy, for He is not far from His own.

24.       The Almighty God as a good father, trustworthy, reliable and dependable in all His ways, is not far from His children. He keeps watch over all His children.

25.       There is no ideal father that does not show keen interest in the affairs of his family. Is it not true? Amen.

26.       Now, I am going to give it a name or a topic. And the topic is already there. I am going to give it a general name. The general name is TEMPTATION or TRIAL OF YOUR FAITH. TEMPTATION [TRIAL OF YOUR FAITH]. Amen.

27.       Both the Bible and the holy Quran said whatever you say you believe the Lord must test you. [1 Peter 1:7; 1 Peter 4:12 – 14; Surah 2:155; Surah 3:140 – 142 etc.]

28.       THE ALMIGHTY GOD MUST TEST YOUR BELIEF. IT IS THE TESTING OF YOUR BELIEF THAT THE PEOPLE CALL TEMPTATION. BUT TO GOD, IT IS TESTING, FOR THERE CAN NEVER BE PROMOTION WITHOUT EXAMINATION.

29.       At the end of every academic semester, there must be examination. True or false? At the end of your career, you must face a thorough examination. Some of them may even culminate into project writing and project defence. True or false?

30.       What are the examiners trying to find out? They want to know whether they have prepped you very well. They want to know whether they have given you adequate information in relation to that course you came there to pursue, so that when you go out you can defend the certificate.

31.       And by so doing, you will defend the name and the reputation of the institution that brought you up.

32.       That is what God is doing. God is training us, equipping us and testing us before releasing us. That is why we are time tested memorials, so that you can defend God.

33.       This is so that you can defend yourselves and the reputation of the Person that really trained you. Amen. So the topic is temptation [trial of your faith].

34.       We are going further. Having given it a title, I think we can now take off. Follow Me. I say, follow Me because you have responded to God’s call. I will pick short Scriptures.

35.       Gospel according to saint Mathew chapter 26 verse 41. [41]KEEP ALERT AND PRAY. Otherwise temptation will overpower you. For the spirit indeed is willing, but how weak the body is! LB

36.       [41]KEEP WATCH AND PRAY that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” GNB

37.       [41]All of you must keep awake [give strict attention, be cautious and active] and watch and pray, that you may not come into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. AMP

38.       [41]Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. KJV

39.       [41]Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. NIV

40.       In all the translations, they are pointing us to one thing. True or false? The need for us to pray and also watch.

41.       Remember My Message, Always watch your back. And I told you that a prayer-less child of God is a weaker child of God. Not weak but weaker.

42.       Whatever knowledge you are acquiring from God, prayer is needed to activate it.I say, prayer activates the spirit.

43.       The Word you are receiving; in you, it will become spirit. It will become life, but it requires activation. What do you use to activate it? Prayer!

44.       That is why prayer activates the Word of God in you [The storage of the life in you], and then it becomes a latent energy; Latent power. I say, Latent power. Am I making sense?

45.       So, acquiring the knowledge without prayer will make you look weak. And praying without acquiring the knowledge will also make you weak.

46.       I am saying that the Word of God is the mechanics, while prayer is the dynamics.

47.       When you gather the Word of God, you put the mechanics together in your hearts and in your mind. Then prayer will kindle the fire. True or false?

48.       Paul and Silas were in the prison. There in the prison, they remembered that Christ has come to set the captives free and to set prisoners free.

49.       Based on that, they went into prayers. They sang and they prayed. Holy Ghost came and opened the prison. True or false?

50.        [Acts 16:25 – 26] And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God, and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s bands were loosed.

51.       When Peter was in prison, Peter remembered prayers. He put the mechanics [the promise] together, and activated it with prayer. The angel came and brought him out. Peter was seen outside the gate of the prison. He continued his journey.

52.       [Acts 12:4 – 11] And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to guard him, intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

53.       Peter therefore was kept in prison, but prayer was made without ceasing by the church unto God for him.  And when Herod would have brought him forth, that same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains; and the keepers were guarding the door of the prison.

54.       And behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison; and he smote Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise up quickly.” And his chains fell off from his hands.

55.       And the angel said unto him, “Gird thyself and bind on thy sandals.” And so he did. And the angel said unto him, “Cast thy garment about thee and follow me.”

56.       And he went out and followed him, and knew not whether what was being done by the angel was real, but thought he saw a vision.

57.       When they had passed the first and the second guard, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city, which opened to them of his own accord. And they went out and passed on through one street, and forthwith the angel departed from him.

58.        And when Peter had come to himself, he said, “Now I know in truth that the Lord hath sent His angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod and from all the expectations of the people of the Jews.”

59.       So do not forget prayer. Pray at all times. Remember [1] you must study, [2] you must pray, [3] you must watch. Amen.

60.       When you know you have forgiven all the wrongs they did to you, your conscience is void of offence before God and man, remember my secret which I revealed to you.

61.       THE SECRET OF ESCAPING CONDEMNATION LIES IN NOT RECORDING SIN. Do not record sin. The moment you record sin, it registers in the heart. forgivING it becomes very difficult, for once it registers IN the memory, you cannot delete it so easily.

62.       The memory will only put something in the recycle bin. That is why, from time to time, the memory will bring it back and renew it as if it has happened again. Am I making sense?

63.       That is why the Bible said, “Think not about the former ignorance [about the former things]; [Isaiah 44:18 – 19; Revelation 21:4] And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.”KJV

64.       For if you believe in Christ you have become a new creature. Stop walking in the old way, and then, face a new way. Amen. Old things have passed away. So, do not bring them back. [2 Corinthians 5:17]Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new.KJV

65.       So, what do we do to any wrong that is done to us? We ignore them. We regard them as the much whosoever that is doing it knows. That is the much he knows. If he knew better, he would have behaved better.

66.       And another way is to regard it as one of those manifestations of human imperfections, human inadequacies, human shortcomings, for its prevalent in all human beings. There is no human being without a shortcoming. True or false?

67.       Then, finally, before you kill that person, put yourself in his shoes and know whether there was a time you behaved that way. Were you killed? What if you were killed when you behaved that way? Will you be alive till today? Good!

68.       All you have to do is to warn the person who is doing it, tell him not to do it anymore. Show that fellow the consequences and then, go your way.

69.       Do not begin to ruminate on it. Do not begin to memorize it so that it becomes a daily song. No, no, no, no, no! Do not do that. When you are doing it, you are even wounding your conscience. Are you getting what I am saying?

70.       If you do not want to set free, hold the person. But when you have set free, do not remember it again. Amen.

 

We thank God for what He is doing in our day, more especially the appearance of THE SON OF MAN. THE SON OF MAN has appeared but He will not take us home immediately for He has a work to do. May be we do not know the meaning of THE SON OF MAN; I say may be! If we know the meaning of SON OF MAN, then we can now look for His Ministry. Believe it if you can, THE SON OF MAN has a Ministry. The Bible said, “God judgeth no man, but has committed judgment into the hands of His Dear Son, THE SON OF MAN. Thus, Christ, THE SON OF MAN forgives all manner of sins, that it might be known and believed that THE SON OF MAN has the power to forgive all sins.” In the Ministry of THE SON OF MAN, when He appears on the scene, the Bible said that He is going to separate the goat from the sheep……

KEEP WATCH AND PRAY [2]

 

That is why God said, “If any is taken by a fault…” Oh no! Let us read it Galatians chapter 6 verse 1 [1]Dear brothers if a Christian is overcome by some sin,…

2.           If a child of God is overcome by some sin, remember the Bible said in the Book of 1st John chapter 1 verse 7 through 9 that a child of God does not sin. He does not sin because the seed of God abides in him. But if he sins, let him remember he has an advocate.

3.           Advocate means advance payment which has already been paid. Are you getting what I am saying? It is not ordinary animal. Otherwise, you present another animal. Did you get it? It is paid once and for all.

4.      That was why, even in the olden days, Job was making sacrifices for his children who were afar off, peradventure, while they are in the strange land, they might sin against God. For that he made atonement in his house. Advanced payment.

5.      [Job 1:4 – 5]And his sons went and feasted in their houses, everyone his day, and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.

 And it was so, that when the days of their feasting were ended, Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all; for Job said, “It may be that my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” Thus did Job continually.”

6.           Peradventure they will sin, God will not count it against them, for their father had already made an atonement for the sin before they committed it. Amen. Did you get the Message? [Job 1:4 – 5]

7.           That is why I told you that His death on Calvary gave us this hope of eternal life, for if he did not die on Calvary and resurrected, our sins will have remained with us.

8.      What if we never believed in him? He said, “If you do not believe that I am He, your sins will remain in you, and you die with your sins.

9.       [John 8:24] “So Jesus added, When you have lifted up the Son of Man [on the cross], you will realize (know, understand) that I am He [for Whom you look] and that I do nothing of Myself (of My own accord or on My own authority), but I say [exactly] what My Father has taught Me.

10.       We believe He is the Almighty God. We believe He is the One that has come back with all the supernatural vindications of the Deity surrounding us in this Family.

I can boldly say, “God is here. And I know very well.” In the days of Jacob, Jacob wrestled with God in the wilderness. When he noticed that God was the one he wrestled with, when the angels were ascending and descending, Jacob shouted, “God is here, and I knew it not! So I was wrestling with him. I even fought him.”

11.       [Genesis 28:12]“And he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.

12.       [Genesis 32:24 – 30] “And Jacob was left alone, and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.

25 And when the man saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint as he wrestled with him.

26 And the man said, “Let me go, for the day breaketh.” And he said, “I will not let thee go, unless thou bless me.”

27 And he said unto him, “What is thy name?” And he said, “Jacob.”

28 And he said, “Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel; for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.”

29 And Jacob asked him, and said, “Tell me, I pray thee, thy name.” And he said, “Why is it that thou dost ask after my name?” And he blessed him there.

13.       30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel [that is, The face of God]: “For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved

14.       What did he do? Immediately, he erected an altar and called that place Bethel, Amen. Then that place became an awesome entrance to heaven, a ladder to heaven, God was the ladder, awesome entrance, gate of heaven, city of truth, gate of heaven. Amen. Are you with me?

15.       Galatians chapter 6 verse 1 [1]Dearbrothers, if a Christian is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help him back onto the right path, remembering that next time it might be one of you who is in the wrong. LB Amen.

16.       Remembering that next time, it could be you.

17.       SONG: [The LORD will bless someone tonight. The LORD will bless someone tonight. The LORD will bless someone tonight. The LORD will bless someone tonight.

18.       It must be you. It must be I. It must be someone by your side. It must be you. It must be I. It must be someone by your side.]

19.       If you decree, your God will establish it. Amen. This teaching makes Me strong. Amen, now we are considering Galatians chapter 6. Pay attention!

20.       I told you the hour is coming. And if I notice that you are not going anywhere, I will take my family, friends and well-wishers and go home. Prepare them and take them home. Did I say so? If these things do not happen, how can the prophecies be fulfilled?

21.        [1]My brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in any kind of wrongdoing, those of you who are spiritual should set him right; but you must do it in a gentle way. And keep an eye on yourself, so that you will not be tempted, too. GNB

22.       [1]Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. NIV

23.        [1] Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. KJV

24.       [1]Brethren, If any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also. AMP

25.       Lest you fall into the same error, or the same mistake. It is not restore and ridicule. It did not say restore him and ridicule him. No! It did not say restore and sack him. The same way, God reinstated the prodigal son. True or false? That is what God called DIGNIFIED INCLUSION. Amen.

26.       We are going somewhere. I hope you are following Me. Gospel according to saint Mark chapter 14 verse 38. We want to see how saint Mark recorded his own: The same matter.

27.       [38]Watch with me and pray lest the Tempter overpower you. For though the spirit is willing enough, the body is weak. LB

28.       [38]Keep awake and watch and pray [constantly], that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. AMP

29.       [38]And he said to them, “Keep watch, and pray that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” GNB

30.       [38]Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak. KJV

31.       [38]Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. NIV

32.       Any contradiction? Good! We are moving further. We are moving higher every day. We are moving higher every day. Amen.

33.       Gospel according to saint Luke chapter 22 verse 40 and 46 [40]And when He came to the place, He said to them, Pray that you may not [at all] enter into temptation. …

34.       46And He said to them, Why do you sleep? Get up and pray that you may not enter [at all] into temptation. AMP

35.       WHY DO YOU SLEEP TOO MUCH? ARE YOU STILL SLEEPING? WHY DO YOU SLEEP WHEN YOU SHOULD BE PRAYING? PRAY THAT YOU DO NOT ENTER INTO TEMPTATION OF ANY SORT AT ALL.

36.       The only way not to enter into temptation is not to invite it, and not to desire anything contrary to the truth. This is because you will know who is inviting this temptation and ways you invite it.

37.       But look at the remedy. watch ye and pray at all times that you do not at all enter into temptation.

38.       The Bible said, “A wise man seeth danger and he avoids it, but a foolish and unreasonable fellow will see danger and walk straight to it.” Amen. [Proverbs 22:3] “A prudent man foreseeth the evil and hidethhimself, but the simple pass by and are punished.

39.       Watch ye and pray. Why are you spending much time sleeping? If a man sleeps, his world will sleep. When you rise up, your world will rise up.

40.       Stay awake! Be vigilant! Can you be asleep and be vigilant? Be sober! Be vigilant, for your enemy [your adversary] is roaring around you; the devil [Satan] is seeking to devour you.

41.       Will you go and sleep when your enemy is around you? The moment your enemy is around, do you blink your eyes? Do not ever blink your eyes one bit. Otherwise, he will strike you.

42.       REMEMBER, IT IS A SPIRITUAL AFFAIR. A SPIRITUAL AFFAIR. A SPIRITUAL BATTLE.

That is why the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but spiritual, mighty through God to the pulling down of that stronghold of Satan in my life, in your own life. Pull it down.

43.   [2 Corinthians 10:3 – 5] “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.

4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds,

5 casting down imaginations and every high thing that exaltethitself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”

44.       He said behold I give you authority, behold I give you power to conquer all those things. Amen.

45.       Do not make yourself weak by spending much time in sleeping instead of praying; in watching often, in praying often, in studying often.

46.       You study to show yourself approved unto God as a workman that needs not to be ashamed, but rightly dividing the Word of truth. [2 Timothy 2:15] “Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth.

47.       Saint Paul said to a young man like all of you here, “Timothy, until I come, give attention to studying and to prayers.” [1 Timothy 4:13 – 16]

48.       Establish regular prayers as your habit. It is an individual matter. To study is an individual matter. To watch is an individual matter. To pray is an individual matter. If you lose the revelation, Satan will take you to captivity.

49.       Remember My Message,Be careful about second spiritual captivity in the hand of the devil. He [Satan] will not spare. He will not spare, lest you repent again. Amen.


 

Even if you pass through fire, I am there. You pass through waters I am there. No matter the trouble, I am there. Will God permit you to be tried? Yes! I say Yes! You must be tried. It is when you are tried and tested that you can be called FAITHFUL. You cannot answer faithful when you have not been tested and tried. And a trial of a child of God is always a fiery trial.

PRAY THAT YOU DO NOT FALL

INTO TEMPTATION

 

 

Saint Luke chapter 22 verse 40 and 46 [40]There he told them, “Pray God that you will not be overcome by temptation. … [46]“Asleep!” he said. “Get up! …

Asleep! Are you still sleeping? Get up! Awake thou that sleepeth for the night is far spent. For your salvation draweth nearer now that when you first believed. [Ephesians 5:14] “Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light.

2.        [Romans 13:11 – 12]Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah). 12 The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light.

3.        Jesus asked them a question, “Why can you not tarry with me in prayer even for one hour? [Matthew 26:40] “And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and He said to Peter, What! Are you so utterly unable to stay awake and keep watch with Me for one hour?

4.         Mark 14:37] “And He came back and found them sleeping, and He said to Peter, Simon, are you asleep? Have you not the strength to keep awake and watch [with Me for] one hour?

 

5.           Why can you not spend at least one hour with me in prayers? Why can you not stay awake for at least one hour giving yourself to prayers without dozing and without dreaming a dream?

6.           Whoever that is kneeling down praying and is dreaming a dream, is he praying? He is sleeping. AND YOU CAN NEVER SLEEP UNTIL YOUR SPIRIT SLEEPS. WHEN YOUR SPIRIT SLEEPS YOU HAVE SLEPT. AMEN.

7.           That is why you can sit down, even while we are talking, and you are sleeping. You are seeing vision. You are dreaming and at the same time, sitting down, nodding your head and jamming people. It is a spirit you have to fight. Amen.

8.           Hear me very well. Show Me a child of God that is strong spiritually and I will show you one that is fortified with prayers and with the Word of God.

9.           Study! Put the mechanics together. And then, with the dynamics which is prayer, you set it aflame; Set it aflame. True or false? AMEN.

10.       Luke chapter 22:40 and 46. [40]There he told them, “pray God that you will not be overcome by temptation.” … [46]“Asleep!” he said, “Get up! Pray God that you will not fall when you are tempted.” LBPray to God that you will not fall when you are tempted

11.       [40]When he arrived at the place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” … [46]He said to them, “Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you will not fall into temptation.” GNB

12.       Have you heard it? Does it mean that you will not sleep at all? NO! THERE IS TIME FOR EVERYTHING. There is time for everything. There is time for eating. There is time for other domestic chores. There is time for studying. THERE IS TIME FOR PRAYERS.

13.       IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A TIME YOU HAVE SET ASIDE FOR PRAYERS AND OBSERVE IT AS A REGULAR PRAYER YOU MUST BE OVERCOME BY TEMPTATION, FOR YOU WILL BE LOSING STRENGTH SPIRITUALLY.

14.       The more you nourish the flesh by sleeping, by eating too much, by talking too much and by pArambulating, the more you are weakening your spirit, amen. I hope we are coming home.

15.       [40]And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. … [46]and said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. KJV

16.       [40]On reaching the place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” … [46]“Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. NIVAmen.

17.       Have you seen the remedy? Have you seen the remedy? Does temptation exist? [Yes!] Thank you! And I will show you how it exists. Amen.

18.       Does testing from God exist? Yes! I will show you that it exists. Amen. Let us continue with that temptation. May God help us.

19.       1st Corinthians chapter 10 verse 13 only. [13]But remember this – the wrong desires that come into your life aren’t anything new and different. … What?

20.       But remember this – the wrong desires that come into your life aren’t anything new and different. … LB

21.       They are not anything new. Note it! Wrong desires! We are reading from Living Bible translation. I am giving it a name. I am giving it a name.

22.       Remember very well that wrong desires that come often in your heart are not peculiar to you alone. They are not specially meant for you. They are common among all children of God. True or false?

23.       I have to pass through the hole through which others passed. The water that saved others can save me. The family that secured others will secure me. The Ark that accommodated Noah and his family can accommodate me.

24.       The ark that safeguarded Noah and his family can safeguard me and my family. The promise that saved them, the same promise is for me through Christ, for we are heirs; joint heirs with the lord. We are one Family. We are one.

25.       SONG: [We are heirs of the Father. We are joint heirs with the LORD. We are children of the Kingdom. We are family. We are one.]

26.       THE SON OF MAN is here to confirm the promises that were made unto the fathers, and that is still invoked; that it is still effective and will remain effective till we are clothed with immortality, which is the completeness of our salvation.

27.       Those promises are still here. God has not revoked any of them for one day. So, do not allow anybody to fool you into believing that resurrection of the dead has taken place. It has not.

28.       I am the only one that was alive. i was dead. and I am alive even forever more. And I hold the keys of both hell and heaven, even death. So, I am here.

29.       If it has taken place, why is the Almighty surrounding us with all the supernatural evidences that cannot be impersonated? And allowed us to use even our phone cameras, use everything to capture Him?

30.       Is it not a sure sign? Is it not a vindication? Is not a guarantee that we are not wasting our time, and that we are on the right track?

31.       Moreso, when we can see The Man, Who in Him dwelleth the fullness of the Godhead bodily. We can see the Temple templing Him, for if God wants to hide where they cannot know Him, He hides in a man, where no man can even trace Him.

32.       If He goes to the mountain, they will see him. If He goes to the valley, they will see Him. But He hides in a Man. And that Man becomes the Elohim in human form, domiciled here with us, eating and drinking with us, and providing for our needs. Am I making sense?

33.       You see why if the whole world will know Who is dwelling here; if the whole world will know Who is hiding here; He left the whole of Onitsha. He left Enugu. He left Lagos. He left Abuja and came into the forest to hide Himself.

34.       And then swore an oath, “I will never live with anything called tenant. I will live with My Family alone. I do not want any encumbrance. Away with the tenants and their money. I do not need it.”

35.       Listen to Me. He said, “COME TO ME. [not “Come unto.”] come to me. Come to me, for I am God. I am God. besides me, there is no other. I am the only saviour. I am the only One. there is not even one that can partner with me. amen!

36.       You can now begin to see the type of privilege you have. With the introduction and where we are, you can boldly stand on your feet. You can stand up during trials. You can be patient during temptations, for you know who you are and what you are made up of. Amen.

37.       Let us continue. 1st Corinthians chapter 10 verse 13 [13]But remember this – the wrong desires that come into your life aren’t anything new and different. … Underline that!

38.       The WRONG DESIRES THAT COME INTO YOUR MIND; THEY ARE NOT ANYTHING NEW AND DIFFERENT. THEY ARE GENERAL. THEY ARE COMMON TO ALL. AMEN.

39.       So, do not personalize it. I say, do not personalize it. Rather, pray it out. Pray that wrong desires will not come in at all. i say, Pray that wrong desires will not come in at all. The only way not to break any law is not to have any law at all.

40.       That is why the Bible said, “Pray that you do not even have temptation at all.” Amen.

41.       (Matthew 26:41)Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” KJV

42.       (Luke 22:46)And He said unto them, “Why sleep ye? Rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.”KJV

43.       (Mark 14:38)Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.” KJV

44.       No man is a repository of all temptations. Do not make yourself a home of all temptations. Do not make yourself a home. Pray it out.

45.       If you are to glory, glory not with temptation because power is given to you to pray it out. Pray that it will not come.

46.       Whenever it comes, pray that you will overcome. Do not dwell in it, for there is no virtue in temptation. there is no virtue in temptation.

47.       Who prays that death should come so he can prove he is above death? Who has seen death? Who is that person that has seen death? Even if you are told to avoid death, can you avoid death. Where have you ever seen death? Can anyone ever see death? Amen.

48.       What is temptation? Do not allow wrong desires to ever come into your heart. amen.

49.       That is why the Bible said, “At all times, if there is any virtue in you, what should you be meditating on? Whatsoever that is good; whatever that is noble; whatever that is of honest report; whatsoever that is edifying; whatsoever that can minister grace to anybody; whatever that is godly; Whatever whatever! If there be any virtue in you, think on these things.

50.       [Philippians 4:8]Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.

51.       It is when you become idle without prayer and without study that you make yourself the devil’s workshop. True or false?

52.       1 Corinthians 10:13[13]But remember this – the wrong desires that come into your life aren’t anything new and different. many others have faced exactly the same problems before you.

53.       And no temptation is irresistibleWhat? NO TRIAL IS IRRESISTIBLE. NO TESTING IS IRRESISTIBLE. Did you get it right?

54.       you can trust God to keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can’t stand up against it,

55.       Have you heard it? What do you do? Trust God to help you so they cannot be too strong that you cannot resist them.

56.       …for he has promised this and will do what he says. He will show you how to escape temptation’s power so that you can bear up patiently against it. LB

57.       Amen. He will show you how to escape temptation’s power. And that has been shown to us. [1] Watch and [2] pray at all times. [3] study the Word. [4] do not forget the Word of God, for that is the mechanics.

58.       Remember the promises for dangerous hours. When you are tempted, there is a Scripture there. There is no condition God never provided the Scripture and in the Holy Quran.

59.       What should be the attitude of a child of God when he sees himself in such a horrible situation? Kneel down and pray.

60.       Let me tell you. The devil will be in trouble anytime he causes a child of God to remember prayers.

61.       The devil will be roving and having his way over a child of God until he [the child of God] remembers who he is, and remembers the power and authority conferred on him, and goes on his knees. Amen.

62.       That is why I remember, at the prime of my youth, no matter the situation, even in the office, I will be murmuring in my heart, humming it in my heart, “God, do not allow Me to die on the way. Let Me get home and enter My little room of no regrets.”

63.       The moment I enter My room and lock up My door [close my door against everybody to avoid distraction], I lie flat on the bare floor, call upon God and He answers Me straight away.

64.       When I come out, I become a new fellow with a new strength, a new vision and a new awakening. Oooh No! Amen.

65.       Satan is making a noise because a child of God has not remembered prayers.

66.       If you want to weaken yourself, stop praying and then, give yourself over to eating, drinking and sleeping [and idle life], watching television when you should be praying. Seating idle.

67.       When you are not meditating about God you are meditating about the world. You are either gazing at the sky or gazing at the world. You become a gazer and an imaginator. Amen.

68.       Pay attention everybody 1 Corinthians 10:13. [13]For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads]…No matter how the temptation or trial comes or where it is leading to.

69.       …[no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man.You are not the only one that has experienced it.

70.       …[that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word… God is what? God is faithful to His promise.

71.       … But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature],... A merciful Being.

72.       …and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently. AMP

73.       [13]Every test that you have experienced…Every test! Have you seen it? You call it temptation. It is test.

74.       [13]Every test that you have experienced is the kind that normally comes to people. But God keeps his promise, and he will not call you to be tempted beyond your power to remain firm; at the time you are put to the test, he will give you the strength to endure it and to provide you the way out. GNB

75.       Have you heard from him? Have you heard from him? To God be the glory.
