LET HIM THAT HAS EARS HEAR WHAT GOD IS SAYING TO EVERY ELECT: PART 1

Apostle Peter Odoemena

 LET HIM THAT HAS EARS HEAR WHAT GOD IS SAYING TO EVERY ELECT: PART 1 PREACHED ON FRIDAY 24TH APRIL 2020 AT THE BRIDAL LODGE NSUGBE ANAMBRA STATE, NIGERIA BY APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN

YOU MUST ANCHOR YOUR FAITH IN THE WORD.  FAITH LOOKS AT THE WORD; FAITH DOES NOT LOOK AT THE PROBLEM. WHAT IS MORE, FAITH CONSIDERS WHAT THE WORD SAYS CONCERNING IT.

FAITH DOES NOT CONSIDER HIS CONDITIONS; HE CONSIDERS THE PROMISE OF GOD CONCERNING HIS CONDITIONS.

ANY DAY A LITTLE DOUBT COMES IN, FAITH VANISHES, FAITH AND DOUBT CAN NEVER GO TOGETHER

From the message Faith pg. 75 vs. 18, 19, pg. 40 vs 10 Preached on 12th March 1993

GOD IS EVER MINDFUL OF HIS PROMISES

I  know my reasons why I have decided for two days now not to process any message for the globe and for many families.

I want everybody to be with me.  If you are not with me tonight you will regret. I said; I want everybody to be with me. By being with me I mean - give me your attention.

 I know we gathered tonight with THE GREAT SERMON. But I will like us to hear the Greater Sermon. We will hear “THE GREATER SERMON.” I believe it will make us good.

No time spent with God is wasted.  The Prophet Muhammad said; a minute you spent in the presence of Almighty God is better preferred to one million years you wasted out in the world. 

JUST LIKE I USED TO TELL YOU, IT IS NOT HOW LONG A MAN LIVED HIS LIFE HERE ON EARTH BEFORE HE DIED THAT MATTERS. WHAT MATTERS IS HOW HE LIVED THAT LIFE.

So, to live is Christ, to die is also Christ.

If you live one million years here on earth and died without Christ, a child that is yet unborn is better than that person. 

I do not want you to do much writing. I want you to do more hearing than writing.  I want to talk to everybody in a very mild way.

 I do not want anything that will distract your attention. Once your attention is distracted, my own is also distracted.

How I wish you will place your phone on the ground there.  It will make a better recording.  I do not want this type of movement.  I want everywhere to be orderly as we look into the scriptures.

 Remember I told you that I am aware that we programmed to read THE GREAT SERMON we started in the morning. But I am here tonight to give you the greater Sermon.

AND THE GREATER SERMON IS LIFE SERMON.  I say, “LIFE SERMON.” When you see any activity that is life the difference is clear.

Anybody who will be watching that activity when it must have finished is just watching recorded activity, edited activity.  Some salient areas might be missing.

But tonight, it is not how long we shall stay in the fellowship that matters but how touching and effective is our fellowship with God.

Our fellowship is with God who is alive forevermore.  If we gather and His Spirit is not there, it profits us nothing. I believe that you all have the Holy Spirit which is the Spirit of truth.

Let me first of all take you to the Bible as we read 1 Peter 1:12 Amplified and Living Bible.

   1 Peter 1:12 It was then disclosed to them that the services they were rendering were not meant for themselves and their period of time, but for you.

[It is these very] things which have now already been made known plainly to you by those who preached the good news (the Gospel) to you by the [same] Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Into these things [the very] angels long to look! AMP

1 Peter 1:12 They were finally told that these things would not occur during their lifetime, but long years later, during yours. And now at last this Good News has been plainly announced to all of us.

It was preached to us in the power of the same heaven-sent Holy Spirit who spoke to them; and it is all so strange and wonderful that EVEN THE ANGELS IN HEAVEN WOULD GIVE A GREAT DEAL TO KNOW MORE ABOUT IT. TLB

“EVEN THE ANGELS IN HEAVEN WILL GIVE A GREAT DEAL OF TIME, EFFORTS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS TRUTH.”

This portion was referring to the good news of God promising to save us which was announced long ago by the prophets - that God will be justifying us by Faith in Christ. Those who heard this good news were wondering what manner of people that will be here on earth to benefit from this wonderful promise.

And God said; all of you should sleep in death for this promise is not for you.  I think it is better we read it from verse one in Living Bible.

1 Peter 1:1-12 From: Peter, Jesus Christ's missionary. To: The Jewish Christians driven out of Jerusalem and scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia Minor, and Bithynia.

2Dear friends, God the Father chose you long ago and knew you would become his children….

“God the father chose you long ago and knew ahead of time that you will become His children.”

And the Holy Spirit has been at work in your hearts, cleansing you with the blood of Jesus Christ and making you to please him. May God bless you richly and grant you increasing freedom from all anxiety and fear.

3All honor to God, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; for it is his boundless mercy that has given us the privilege of being born again so that we are now members of God's own family...

So that we are now what? Members of God's own family. A wonderful privilege!  

Now we live in the hope of eternal life…

Now we live in the hope of what? Eternal life! I want you to pay strict attention because what I am going to touch will be useful to you and to any other person who will pay attention.

We now live in the hope of what? Eternal life! Because faith has been revealed.

Now we live in the hope of eternal life because Christ rose again from the dead. 4And God has reserved for his children the priceless gift of eternal life;…

God has done what? “Reserved for His children the priceless gift of eternal life.”

It is kept in Heaven for you pure and undefiled beyond the reach of change and decay...

Who will change it? Can it decay? Can it wax old?

5And God, in his mighty power, will make sure that you get there safely to receive it because you are trusting him...

And God in His mighty power will make sure that you get there safely. Who will make sure? God!

You see why God has never ceased from laboring? What has been His aim?  To make sure we have no problem on the way, we do not encounter any difficulty crossing the gate.

You see why Christ is sent to our generation? To reveal faith; which has made our journey to Paradise a pleasurable one. I say; “a pleasurable one”.

Anxiety has vanished. The fear as to whether God will destroy us is no more there.  We are now settled, rooted, grounded, immovable because we know for sure that God is ever mindful of His promises, for in Him they are ye and Amen.

For by these two immutable things; the Oath and the Covenant: which He entered into with His people even though He made it afore time.

What is more? The Scriptures made it clear that the Law that came 430 years after the promise was given to Abraham can never annul the promise. It can never, never cancel the promise. Which means, Law or no Law, the promise standeth sure.

It was the hardness of heart, their stubbornness that prompted God to write in a plate, in tablets; Ten Commandments which they could not keep, which contained no life. That is why the Ten Commandments are no longer for us whom Christ has saved. Halleluiah!

Heaven made easy. A pleasurable ride into paradise. Amen. I will introduce the topic with time. 

And God has reserved for his children the priceless gift of eternal life…

God has done what? “Reserved for His children the priceless gift of eternal life”. Not for the world.  A glorious place, a wonderful place has already been reserved for His children.

Now we are born again, members of His own family, a reservation is already there, made an eternal one that can never wax old, cannot decay, cannot change, cannot be withdrawn.

And God has reserved for his children the priceless gift of eternal life. It is kept in Heaven for you pure and undefiled beyond the reach of change and decay.

And God in His mighty power will make sure you get there safely to receive it…

  “And God in His mighty power”. I am not the one that will do it. God in His mighty power will ensure that we enter paradise without any problem or obstacle.

God can never send a people and draw back. Once He sends out a people, He is behind them, He is in front, He is behind. He guides the four corners.

 And God in His mighty power will make sure that you get there safely to receive it because you are trusting Him…

Why? Because you are trusting in God not trusting in yourself or trusting in somebody. Why? Because you have put your confidence, your dependence, your reliance upon God and God alone.                    

 

It will be yours in that coming last day… what?

It will be mine. Do we have God in person as our Teacher? Has God revealed Himself among us? What is the essence of His labour all these years? Why is He correcting? Why is He indicting? Why is He teaching? Why is He correcting. What has been His aim?

He said, “I do not want anybody to have problem along the way. Follow me. If only you will trust in me, I will see you through. I will guide you safely there.”

It will be yours in that coming last day for all to see…

For what? It will be yours in that coming last day for all to see that you have never believed God in vain, that you never made a mistake by identifying yourself with the revealed God in your own Age.

I told you. Whoever that follows me and trusts in me, can never be disappointed in the end. Instead, he will say, “Surely the Elohim dwelleth in the Son of Man.”

I am sent to come and bring you home. For you do not know the way, you have not been there.  It takes somebody (who knows the way). Why is He (the Resurrected body) here? To fulfill a promise He made long, long time ago;

For I am going to prepare a place for you after which I will come back, take you to myself that wherever I am, there you will be.  Comfort yourselves with this promise which can never fail.

It will be yours in that coming last day. So, be truly glad…

So be what? “Truly glad.” Did He say sorrow about? “Be truly glad.”

So, be truly glad for there is wonderful joy ahead…

You see, the scripture says; “the sufferings of this present time are nothing to be compared to the joy that awaits every true believer that we will get into paradise.

And we are getting there, for God is able to see us through in His mighty power. He is not going to use my power; He is not going to use your power. Is there any mightier than God?

You see, when you are resting on the promise of God, you have the heart like lion. You have faith. I call it unshakable faith.  I told you that you do not go to the university to have it.

It is by believing and trusting in Him. And the Spirit completes the work.  All you need is there. The spirit takes control and then completes the work. Amen.

 

AM I DESIGNATED TO HUMILIATE GOD IN MY ACTIONS OR TO CAUSE GOD TO BE HONOURED?  THIS IS A QUESTION WE HAVE TO ASK OURSELVES.

What is God’s purpose for me? What is God’s purpose for you? Are you fitting into His plan? Is your own plan fitting into God’s own purpose? Or is your plan opposed to God’s own purpose? These are questions we have to answer individually.

ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE CALLED

ACCORDING TO GOD’S PURPOSE

GOD HAS NO UNCOMPLETED PROJECT

I know God for one thing; He does not have any uncompleted project. The salvation mission is God’s project for there is no savior except God.  He is our Savior.

This is a project. He has signed His life in it and He must complete it.  When is He going to complete it?

When we shall be clothed with immortality and then we will be like Him. What a day of rejoicing that will be.

Song: when we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be….

Anything can fail but faith in Christ can never fail.  I have never seen anybody that said that faith in Christ failed him. Never, never!

But any faith placed any other place is a misplaced faith. Do not rest your faith on your power, your ability. For without Christ you can do nothing.

Trust in Him to save so that when the devil speaks, you say; “my friend get way. Get thee behind me!”  I have crossed the riven veil where His glory can never fail.

I am living even in the presence of God. So, I cannot listen to your suggestion.

There is wonderful joy ahead… There is what? “Wonderful joy ahead”. Thank you! Let this joy that is ahead be your focus.

When you wake up in the morning you see the wonderful joy that can never be removed, can never be withdrawn, can never grow old, can never be cancelled. Wonderful joy!

So brethren, better days lie ahead.  That is why we encourage ourselves to remain steadfast in the faith, holding unto the profession of our faith without wavering, without dangling unto the end [Hebrews 10:23].  Amen. I do not care about what that trouble is.

Prophet Muhammad said; “whenever He is revealed in human form (the Great Mahdi), abandon every other thing you are doing, run to Him, embrace Him, hold Him tight.”

He said; whatever might be the trouble of following Him, endure all for He is leading you straight to paradise where your sorrows will be erased, tears will be erased. You will never remember you suffered here.  Amen.

I want you to see the essence of sending Christ in human form.  The essence of sending Christ to God’s people in human form. The anointed One, the Messiah, the Saviour hiding in a man not counting it robbery. 

For the purpose of bringing to pass the promise that was made right from the days of old. ”Right from the days of old”. That is why He is here to confirm the promises that were made unto the fathers. And then complete the work that started from the Garden of Eden; the work of redemption.

So, we are going to enjoy it any moment from now.  Redemption in completeness, redemption in mercy, redemption by faith, redemption in joy not in sorrow.

There is wonderful joy ahead even though the going be rough for a while…

Halleluiah! Even though the going is rough for a while. 

Song: [Come go with me, for the road is very narrow. Come go with me I cannot walk alone. The road is rough and very very narrow. Come go with Me, and I will see you through.]

That is what the Lord promised. Without the Lord you can never make it. The help of man is vain. Although the road might be rough just for a while!

That is why, remember what I told you in time past; every problem you are encountering has expiry date.

 There is no problem that does not have expiry date. Even sickness expires. Do you believe that?  Everything has expiry date.

There is only but one who does not expire.  And that is the Almighty God. And the promises of God can never expire. They are ever current, new, effective.

 That is why when our fathers got it they were commanded to pass it on to their children, to their children’s children, to generations to come which we are one of them.

And this generation, Jesus said; will never pass away until all these promises are fulfilled.  And we are living at the verge of the closing of the history.

We are the people closing the history.  And we are closing it on a very sound note. Amen.

That is why He came down in person, showcased Himself. He said; ride on. I mean, showcasing Himself in our midst, allowing Himself to be photographed has increased our faith more and more. We are not following cunningly devised fables. Amen.

So you must know where you are. That is the victory. But where you do not know where you are, the devil will be buffeting you about.  Amen.

Although the road will be very rough but it just for a little while. Amen.

I want you to understand one thing; whenever the night becomes extremely dark, the day is about to unfold. Any time the night becomes extremely thick dark, note it; the day is about to break.

 And I am telling you, a thick darkness has covered everywhere that anywhere you are, you see darkness. No light.

If there is light, it is in the Bride. You know the light?  That is the light of Christ.  For the word of God is light unto the feet of the saints, the light that is lightening our lives.

Hear me very well. Everywhere is now thick darkness. Then we know that the day is about to unfold.  Amen. Although the road may be rough but it just for a little while!

 1 Peter 1:3 Praised (honored, blessed) be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)! By His boundless mercy we have been born again to an ever-living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, [Born anew] into an inheritance which is beyond the reach of change and decay [imperishable], unsullied and unfading, reserved in heaven for you,

5Who are being guarded (garrisoned) by God's power…

“Who are been guided, garrisoned, imprisoned, caged”. A strong hedge! He has hedged us in. and by that hedge, He has hedged unbelievers out.  You are being guided, you are also being garrisoned.

  Through [your] faith [till you fully inherit that final] salvation that is ready to be revealed [for you] in the last time. [You should] be exceedingly glad on this account, though now for a little while you may be distressed by trials and suffer temptations…

Though by now, you may be distressed by trials and suffer diverse temptations but they are for a little while. They will not last forever. I say they will not last forever. They are not eternal, they are temporal. They will soon fizzle out.

  Though now for a little while you may be distressed by trials and suffer temptations so that the genuineness of your faith may be tested. 

So that [the genuineness] of your faith may be tested, [your faith] which is infinitely more precious than the perishable gold which is tested and purified by fire. [This proving of your faith is intended] to redound to [your] praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) is revealed. AMP

1 Peter 1:7-10 These trials are only to test your faith, to see whether or not it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests gold and purifies it-and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold;

so if your faith remains strong after being tried in the test tube of fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day of his return.

8You love him even though you have never seen him; though not seeing him, you trust him; and even now you are happy with the inexpressible joy that comes from heaven itself.

9And your further reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls. This salvation was something the prophets did not fully understand. Though they wrote about it, they had many questions as to what it all could mean.

11They wondered what the Spirit of Christ within them was talking about, for he told them to write down the events which, since then, have happened to Christ: his suffering, and his great glory afterwards. And they wondered when and to whom all this would happen…

For who will be the people that will inherit it. They were asking the question. The Prophets saw the thing and asked; who will be the possible beneficiaries of these things? You see, others planted and we are harvesting. Look at the answer God gave.

1 Peter 1:12 They were finally told that these things would not occur during their lifetime, but long years later, during yours. And now at last this Good News has been plainly announced to all of us.

It was preached to us in the power of the same heaven-sent Holy Spirit who spoke to them; and it is all so strange and wonderful that even the angels in heaven would give a great deal to know more about it. TLB

You see, there is a reason why we preserve the truth so that our children that are yet unborn will come and meet the truth and be guided and garrisoned.

“Guided and garrisoned”, so that the enemies will not have advantage over them.  The only way you can guide a people against error is by espousing them to the promises of God that can never fail.

Song: [standing, standing, standing on the promises of God my Saviour].

 Did He promise to redeem us, to save us, did He promise us eternal life?  That is all!   

1 Peter 1:8 – 10. Without having seen Him, you love Him; though you do not [even] now see Him, you believe in Him and exult and thrill with inexpressible and glorious (triumphant, heavenly) joy.

9[At the same time] you receive the result (outcome, consummation) of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

10The prophets, who prophesied of the grace (divine blessing) which was intended for you, searched and inquired earnestly about this salvation. AMP


IN THE TIME OF DIFFICULTIES, PERPLEXITIES AND ADVERSITIES, IN THE TIME OF HARDSHIP SUCH AS WE WITNESSED LAST YEAR, GOD PROVIDED FOR US ALL ROUND. WE NEVER LACKED ANYTHING GOOD. WE WERE FLOURISHING ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD. … TAKING CARE OF TOO MANY MOUTHS IN THE TIME OF HARDSHIP TO FULFILL HIS WORD THAT WE SHALL LIVE IN PLENTY IN THE TIME OF SCARCITY IF ONLY WE CAN PIN OUR HOPE IN CHRIST, TRUSTING HIM, OBEYING HIM, DOING HIS WILL.

TRUST GOD LIKE A CHILD TRUSTS THE PARENTS

 

Now pay attention to me. I told you I am coming here with a greater sermon. And I believe live sermon is better preferred to the one we recorded in 2001. That one is there to put us in remembrance. What are we doing, why am I here?

I will never be negligent putting you in remembrance of these promises.

2 Peter 1:12 I plan to keep on reminding you of these things… I do what? Keep on reminding you of these things, putting you in remembrance of these things though you know them.

2 Peter 1:12 I plan to keep on reminding you of these things even though you already know them and are really getting along quite well!

13-14But the Lord Jesus Christ has showed me that my days here on earth are numbered, and I am soon to die. TLB

2 Peter 1:12 So I intend always to remind you about these things, although indeed you know them and are firm in the truth that [you] now [hold].  AMP

2 Peter 1:12 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have. NIV

2 Peter 1:12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. KJV

And you are also established in the present truth that Christ has been revealed as a human being. Then your justification cometh by faith in Him. Faith that is expressed in Christ becomes your justification.  For He is your justifier, your sanctifier, your baptizer, everything. He is even your salvation. He is your Holy Ghost, He is your redemption, He is everything.

Oh glory!

So now, I want to give you something that will gladden your heart more. Let me have the translations in the book of Mark chapter 10:13-15.

How we can possess this kingdom, this promise of eternal life in paradise, how do we get it? How do we comport ourselves so that we can get safely there?

  Mark 10:13 People were bringing children to Him so that He would touch and bless them, but the disciples reprimanded them and discouraged them [from coming].

But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and He said to them, “allow the children to come to me; do not forbid them;  for the kingdom of God belong to such as these.

I assure you and most solemnly and say to you, whoever does not receive and welcome the kingdom of God like a child will not enter at all”. AMP

Mark 10:13 Once some mothers were bringing their children to Jesus to bless them, the disciples shooed them away, by telling them not to bother him.

But when Jesus saw what was happening, he was very much displeased with his disciples and said to them, “let the children come to me, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as they.

Don’t send them away! I tell you as seriously as I know how that anyone who refuses to come to God as little child will never be allowed into his kingdom.” TLB

I hope I am making sense?

Mark 10:13 people were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place hand on them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw these, he was indignant and say “let the little children come to me and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as this.

Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it”. And he picked the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them. NIV

Luke chapter 18 from verse 15. Another writer for he was there live.

One day, some mothers brought their babies for Him to touch and bless but the disciples told them to go away.

Then Jesus called the children over to him and said to the disciples “let the little children come to me. Never send them away for the kingdom of God belongs to men who have hearts as trusting as these little children.

What?  For the kingdom of God belongs to men and women, young and old that have hearts that are trusting as these little children.

“And anyone who doesn’t have their kind of faith will never get within the Kingdom’s gate.” TLB

And anyone who doesn’t have their kind of faith will never get within the gate of kingdom of paradise.

I want us to pause a little.

A little child trusts in the parents so much especially the mother. A little child does not believe that when the mother is carrying him or carrying her that the mother can carelessly drop her on the ground.

A little child does not believe that as long as he is being guided by adults they will be watching him wound himself.

 A little child trusts people so much and believes that he is secured wherever they may be provided he is in the midst of those elderly people the child feels secured.

That is why if by mistake and carelessness, adults are around and the child falls or wounds herself, the child will sorrow badly. It will weep badly.

Even to console that child is not easy.  Why? It then means whoever that is there has disappointed the child.

Did you get the message? I say pause a little.

Whoever that does not have a trusting heart like that of little children can never come near the gate of paradise. The promise has been made, it is real.

We have been rejoicing, we know it belongs to us for we are God’s children. It is given to use on one condition; that we must trust Him faithfully till the end. True or false?

 We read it here. Not trust Him today and distrust Him tomorrow. You will trust Him that He is able to do that which He has promised, you will trust Him that is able to save us to the utmost seeing that we have come to Him through Christ.

You will trust Him because His promises cannot fail. Are you getting what I am saying?  What will this trust produce in you; complete loyalty, complete obedience, complete loyalty, complete faithfulness, complete obedience. No complaining, no murmuring.

AN ADULT WITH HUMAN SENSE IS FULL OF REASONING. BUT AN ADULT WITH CHRIST SPIRIT HAS ALREADY POSSESSED THE HEART OF A CHILD.

A child does not reason, a child does not complain. Even if he is complaining, he is complaining after a godly sort not demonstrating. I hope I am making sense?

 “Eh mummy see, see, see. Daddy see, see, see”; it is not filled with rage. Even if you hit that child and he cries, he will still come back to you.

Even if you flog that child and wound that child and flog that child, it is correction.  “Mummy I am sorry; Daddy I am sorry; I won’t do it again”. He will still come back to you.

Now, we must develop infant heart. Trust God as infants trust their parents; that with their parents by their side no harm, no disappointment.

They can never believe that they will go to bed without eating for parents will make sure they do everything for them to eat.

Whenever they are sick, they know that their parents are always around to attend to their needs. Their lives have been completely assured in the hands of their parents.

 And the parents cannot allow this trust to be betrayed in their hands. They must try to live to their responsibility towards that child.

That is exactly what God said; that God in His mighty power upholding us will make sure He guides us safely into the promised land only on one condition; that we trust Him like a child trust the mother.

Now we have been given the condition by which we can get the inheritance, is there anything cumbersome in that condition? Tell me.

This is the simplest thing; trust God to save you. The trust you have in God, the promises He has already made for you, the joy that lies ahead. What is that trouble you cannot scale through? What is that suffering?

 He has already told you that it is just for a little while.  He did not give you an impression that it will just be an easy ride like that.

He knows that trials will come, temptations will come, troubles will come but they mean nothing when compared to the glory that is in the future.

So the joy of the future will see you through the troubles of the hour. Do you get the message?

Look at Job. Job said I know what I am passing through is temporary. Though maggots, worm will eat up my flesh, my eyes will behold the Almighty God in the end. And when I shall meet Him, I shall be comforted. That is all.

Did his trust in God fail him? Nobody has ever been disappointed by trusting God.  But when you trust in your power, you will fail. Trust in your own ability, you will fail.

Listen to me very well; an infant does not count offences. Adult sense is what will hinder people from getting the promise. Was it not what hindered them in the wilderness?

When they received this same message which we are receiving now which was promised by the Prophets aforetime, by God who cannot tell lies.

The Bible said they never accepted it by faith. They did not trust God to save them.

They never trusted that Moses could lead them into the land of Canaan. They doubted the ability of God who brought them out from the land of Egypt. That was their problem. Why? They applied adult sense.

ADULT SENSE WILL PROMOTE SELF-EGO.  ADULT INTELLIGENCE PROMOTES OVER PROTECTION OF SELF-EGO WHICH IS THE GREATEST OBSTACLE TO OBEYING THE WORD OF GOD.

That is why I gave you the message titled THE GREATNESS OF SIMPLICITY. Simplify your life. Simplify everything around you. Begin to see yourself as a child who can be ordered about by the Almighty God.

If God is the Word of God, has the Word of God not the right to order us about, to check whatever we are doing, to direct us?

As many as are being led, guided, garrisoned by the word of God, these are the people that have that hope of eternal life.

 But when you refuse to be guided and garrisoned, it then means you are being hedged out. What is hedging you out?

You are the one hedging yourself out for an unbeliever hates himself yet he does not know.

Because what you are saying is this; all these wonderful promises God has made, I do not want them. That is exactly what an unbeliever is saying. A disobedient fellow is an unbeliever.


You were wondering what the cloud would look like to lead a people. I have manifested it. You were wondering how God could live in thick darkness. I have manifested it. You were wondering how God could live in a bright light. I have manifested it. You were wondering where there could be lily in the valley (the name of God), I have manifested the lily. Tell me what else are you looking for? I say, when God has shown you visible signs through his messenger and yet to obey Allah is difficult, what else are you expecting from him if not supreme humiliation.

WHY ARE YOU FOOLING YOURSELF?  VOL 1. PREACHED ON 10TH OCTOBER 2019.

PAGE 46:19 AND 47:22

ADULT SENSE OPPOSES THE WILL OF GOD (1)

Do not take unbelief too far. Once you are disobedient in one thing, you are disobedient in all. Disobey one, you have disobeyed all.

How many instructions did Adam and Eve disobey?  “One”. Where did it land them? God cast them away from the promised land. 

How many instructions did Moses disobey? “One”. How many instructions did Saul disobey? One? How many instructions did Peter disobey? One! How many did Barnabas disobey? One?

“Come let us go and meet with people we spoke to in time past the Word of life and know how they are faring.” He said, “I will not go again”. That’s all.

If you watch the people Moses said; let us go and poses the land. They said; we are no longer going.

“We are not going. It is better we go back to Egypt to continue eating cucumber, garlic, and whatever they were eating there for their hearts never departed.  Their legs departed from Egypt, their hearts were still there.

Have they now trusted God? Do they have infant heart?  You must have child-like heart.

The moment you are reasoning the Word of God, your faith is vanishing gradually. There is no virus that attacks faith in a man more than reasoning the word.

The moment reasoning comes, who reasons the word? It is an adult.  Who reasons instructions from God? An adult.

An infant does not reason instructions. Go and give me water! One way! Water will come.

 Let somebody read this Message POSESSING CHILD-LIKE FAITH verse 13. “I am trying to say that he was opposing the will of God using adult sense…”

You oppose the will of God by applying adult sense, adult heart. Not child-like heart. No child opposes the will of the parents. It is impossible.

Even if the child will say; I will not do it. Before you know it he has already done it. Amen.

But once adult sense is there - with adult heart - craftiness will come, subtlety will come, lying will come, Laziness will come, hypocrisy will come., selfishness will come, every kind of evil will now follow; hate, variance, quarrelling, wrangling, disputing, malice, demonstrations unnecessarily, complaining, murmuring, grumbling, all of them will follow.

These are names of demons that possess a disobedient fellow. There are too many. At the end of it all, you become a murderer. The person becomes a murderer. You may not stab anybody but the word of your mouth will be caustic.

The word of your mouth can even sentence the whole world to hell in one second. You become unapproachable, very hostile, very antagonistic.

These are spirits that has possessed the individual as a result of one single disobedience to God’s Word brought about by adult reasoning.

 That is WHY ONE THAT IS ON HIS WAY TO PERDITION SEES CORRECTION AS INSULT. HE SEES HUMILITY AS DISGRACE.

I am telling you the truth. Any day you begin to see correction as insult, you are on your way to destruction. You see humility as disgrace, you are on your way to eternal hell.

Because these two spirits are promoted by pride. These two spirits are promoted by pride which is the main stay of over protection of self-ego, “I am above this, they are insulting me, am I still a kid? What are you telling me?”

A child can never make such comment. A child can never think that way. It takes an adult with adult sense.

We are adults by age but as long as Christ lives, no matter your age, we are an infant. Who can tell me the age of God? Who can tell me the age of Christ?

If Christ is our father, are we not his children? You are the children of the kingdom. Who prepared the kingdom for you? God.

Who gave you condition for possessing it? God. And now you are using adult sense claiming that you are now older than God. Yes! That is what it means.

If the younger should respect and obey the elder one, to what extent do you respect and obey God as the elderly one? To what extent do you respect and obey God even as your father, your creator, your maker?

The man who is guiding you, leading you into everlasting life. Giving you a gift your sense cannot give you. Human sense can never give us salvation, can never give us paradise.

It was human sense that destroyed them in the wilderness. For application of human sense leads to rebellion. Application of adult sense in the Word of God leads to rebellion.

POSESSING CHILD-LIKE FAITH verse 13. “I am trying to say that he was opposing the will of God using adult sense. ADULT SENSE CAN NEVER DO GOD A SERVICE ACCORDING TO HIS WILL. For adult sense must always try to have his way…”

The kingdom has been revealed. we are almost there. but there is a step left. one thing remaineth. What is that one thing?

We have not developed the level of trust God is expecting from us. We have not trusted God to the extent God wants us to trust Him.

We have not believed God like infants believe their mother [their parents]. We have not. So something still remaineth.

As many as are willing to possess that land, this must be their faith. But as many as are applying sense can never near the gate. “Will never come near the gate.”

You will hear about it but nothing will ever bring you nearer to the gate of paradise. Then where is the sense leading you to?

What have you gained by having such a great adult sense that will not help you to obey God, that will always be making you to be challenging the truth, challenging the word of God?

Whatever that is inspiring you to do that where is it taking you to? It is taking you away from God and pointing you to hell.

Remember that the kingdom is given to those who will obey. Not to those that will disobey.

So, the kingdom of God (Paradise) is not for every Tom, Dick and Harry. It is only for those that have yielded themselves to the leadership of God.

So that He is their guide, their instructor and also their garrison commander. They can never do anything or step out without a written authority.

A pass duly signed, authorized. And you dare not flout it. He will tell you how many days you will stay and come back. You do not flout it.

So everything is regulated within the garrison. I am saying that there is what we call garrison life; life in the kingdom. The kingdom begins here. The kingdom begins here.

That is the essence of establishing the church in the family so that you will be properly guided and also garrisoned until get accustomed to living the life of Christ without schism, without quarreling, without complaining.

 A life full of joy, full of peace, full of praise. And any family that will attain it God will mark it good. And that is the essence of Christ coming in human form.

This is the work He has come to do. I want to show you another thing in that book. Adult sense; adult sense, reasoning the word produces unbelief. Pay attention!

You that want to apply adult sense to the word of God; you will end it saying that these are empty promises. You will end it saying that they do not exist.

You will end it saying we are deceiving you or we are intimidating you, we are harassing you. That is what your sense will always be telling you that we hate you, that we disgracing you. Nobody hates you. You are the one that hates yourself.

Page 66 verse 56 “Let me tell you once you start using adult sense in this faith, you will start battling with your salvation. Amen.”

The moment you start using adult sense, applying adult sense to your knowledge of the word of God, truly speaking you will be battling with your salvation. Civil war will be in you. You will be battling. You will not know where you belong to again. You will not know whether this promise is real or not.

The more you are battling, the more you are distrusting the promise. Nobody who is battling with his salvation puts trust and confidence in God again.

Once you apply adult sense, it goes to show that you do not have that child-like heart. You are still under the Law, you are still reasoning the word, you are still skeptical. That is adult sense. This is the truth.

You know the one you are above and the one that Is greater than you. You know the one that you are supposed to do and the one that you are not supposed to do.

Why will he leave the children and send me on an errand?  Why will he leave this one and do that one?” what does it mean; you are battling with your salvation and you must battle It out. 

This Message is for this family not for everybody because this family must produce the first fruit.

As long as God liveth and I live, this is the first family.  First fruit must come from this family! I mean harvested from this family. We will live to testify the goodness of the Lord.

Take note of what I am saying. The secret is what I am revealing now. Have you developed that child-like heart? Have you started accepting the Word of God as an infant accepts everything; believes everything or are you still trying to prove His word?

Are you still investigating His word to know whether it is true or false?  Are you still looking for a way out, you are looking for a loophole from where you can excuse yourself?

Why? You are applying adult sense to the word of God because your heart is a heart of an adult. Amen.

I said tonight as many as will walk with Me and follow Me will go to bed rejoicing. I have showed you the promises that standeth sure. And I am showing you how you can obtain it very freely.

Remember that the essence of God revealing this thing is to make the journey very easy for us; a pleasurable ride.   No obstacle, no obstacle, no suffering.

And whatever might make the journey very rough is just temporary. Just for a little while, we will see it no more.

Let me tell you once you start using adult sense in this faith you will start battling with your salvation. There is nothing we will say here which will be clear to you again…

Everything will seem confusing to you. You will not know where you are again because you are battling with your salvation.  It is clashing. This is the truth of the whole matter. No more trust. Amen.

 There is nothing we will say here which will be clear to you again because adult sense is now clashing with the message.  Amen.

THE SECRET OF SURVIVAL LIES IN CHRIST Page 22 from verse 7 “When you come to a level where God does not care about your condition, God does not even listen to your prayers and supplication, your crying means nothing to Him.

Even if you like kill yourself. Of what use is your life here on earth then? What then is your mission on earth? Such a fellow is doomed.

That is why all our praises to God, all our obedience to God, all our worship to Him is for our own good. It is not for God’s own good. It is well with God already. God does not require the help of man.”

So do not think you are doing God a service by obeying Him. You are not!

Verse 11: God does not seek the face of any man. He is not interested in any man’s face. He has been the self-existing one since the world began.  And He remains the only self-existing one.

When you never existed, God was there. Before you existed God was there. Thus, understand what we are telling you; as we hear these reports, know that these reports are true. Amen.

Know that our reports are true. You must possess child-like faith, develop child-like heart where you query nothing. Where you believe all because God has said it all your duty is to obey.

Because God has said it, I have no choice for it has come from the source where I cannot reject it, I cannot argue, I cannot reason.

But when you apply adult sense you are running into difficulty with; number one with yourself, number two with every believer. “Every true believer.”

You will be having difficulties with them because they will see you as a difficult man to understand, easy going people.  You become a thorn on the flesh of the people that are now heading to Paradise.


Does God not have the power to do to us as the potter does to his clay? Are we not clay in the Hand of God? Why can we not give ourselves over to God so that His will for us will be made manifest in our lives? Why can we not surrender our lives totally into the Hand of God so that His purpose for creating us will be achieved? Opposing the Word of God means opposing himself, for his life is the Word and everything about him is the Word. He proceedeth from the Word. He is a part of the Word. The Word is a part of him. So, the two are inseparable.

ADULT SENSE OPPOSES THE WILL OF GOD

Let me tell you; we are all bound to the promised paradise and nothing will ever deter us. No diversionary action. No diversionary incident.

We are bound, our hearts have been made up. Our eyes fixed. We are saying God hasten action, hasten the day.

 Page 26 verse 16: if there is any other way you are growing in your life which is not the fear of God better start repenting this moment... Halleluiah!

Better start repenting and changing peradventure there maybe hope.

If there is any other way you are growing in your life which is not the fear of God better start repenting this moment

Because the fear of the parent is always in the heart of the infant.  Is not true? But an adult who is applying adult sense; does he fear God? Does he respect his fellow human being? No!

He is a god to himself who wants to be worshipped. He wants to be worshipped. That is the danger of over-protection of self-ego.

When you over protect your ego, you become a tin-god. A tin god! Everybody will be bowing down before you. We will be worship you like a tyrannical traditional ruler. You become another Igbo Sariki Nkuna.

Meditate upon this word that the beginning of your life as a young man or as a young woman, you want to enjoy sound life, you want to have sound health, the beginning is the fear of God…

The beginning is what? The fear of God.  As the child develops the fear of the parents from infancy which is the beginning of wisdom.

That is why the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Anyone who does not have the fear of God lacks wisdom beyond measure...

Anyone who does not have the fear of God lacks wisdom beyond measure.

Why? His wisdom is his own sense. A foolish man thinks that his senses are okay. He thinks that he knows more than every other person.

And anything he does not know does not exist. And he does not believe that somebody else knows it. It is not a good spirit.

That is why God said, “First of all, develop child-like heart. And that child-like heart will help you to love everybody, appreciate everybody, trust everybody. Live together in harmony.”

 When you see infants together, they do not quarrel. If there is anything quarrelling, an adult has instilled it. It is an adult that puts foul language into the mouth of the children.

Adults teach them hate. They teach them enmity. I am telling you the truth. When you begin to warn them, “Do not go there. Do not go there”, they will develop it.

When you gather your children to be telling them evil, evil stories about others, do you want that child to love them again? The child will distance herself from them.

That is what adult sense does. Adult sense puts a man in isolation among the Brethren. It isolates you from the rest of the Brethren.

That is why an adult walking with senses is leprous in the sight of God. I say, he is leprous in the sight of God. In short, he is suffering from COVID-19. He requires to be quarantined.  

  When God said, “Mark them that causes offences and divisions contrary to the Faith of Christ. Do what?  Avoid them. Avoid means quarantine them completely. Isolate them so that they will feel ashamed.

  Anyone who does not have the fear of God lacks wisdom beyond measure. One who lacks wisdom, lacks progress, lacks life and does not have any hope in this life because he or she lacks wisdom.

Thus, the totality of everything I have seen saying along is that you do not take anything seriously, you do not progress, you are empty headed is that you lack the fear of God.

You are applying adult sense which removes you completely from the presence of the Almighty. Amen.

When God said whoever that applies it can never near the gate. The person can never near the gate of paradise. True or false?

That is what God said. Who can cancel it? At least you must near the gate before you will enter. Is it not true?

You must be qualified to come near the gate. Then the gate will open. The Gate will not open when you have not come near. then the gate will open and be waiting. That is not true. That is not true.

 So if you like continue to harden your heart through human and adult reasoning. If you like allow the Word of God to make you a child.

Allow the word of God to make you a child. God said all that will serve Him will serve Him as sheep, as zombie. If you do not accept that you are foolish, you will not be wise. But when you make yourself wise, God will make you foolish.

That is why God saw to it that men, adult in their human sense could not discover the truth. God hardened their hearts, blinded their ears, sent them away with adult sense, with adult reasoning and they perished with it.  He now chose people who decided to be infants who through the belief of the truth made their hearts child-like heart, taking God at His word; believing the unbelievable.

Every true seed of God believes incredible things. For he does not walk by sight, he walks by faith. Adult sense walks by sight. That is why to adult sense nothing works well. For before you come out with that idea he will tell you it will not work.  And he will make sure it does not work. That’s an adult sense. Adult sense; nothing works.

Page 32 verse 8 when the gospel is not reforming your life, it is condemning your life… “When this gospel truth you are hearing is not preparing your to benefit from the promise of eternal life, be it known to you that it is sentencing you to hell for not believing and trusting in God.

When the gospel is not reforming your life it is condemning your life. This is what you must know.  At any point in time when the word of God goes forth if it is not reforming your life for the better, it is condemning you because when you hear, you listen and you refuse to obey, you stand condemned. But when you hear, you listen, you understand and obey, definitely you have reformed your life. Your life cannot be the same again. 

That is why I want you to understand that there is no other God’s power of transformation other than hearing and obeying the word. The transformation power of God lies in His word if you obey.

“If you obey”. Trust and obey. That is the only way we can inherit the promise. The people aforetime, said; “I will never be negligent putting you in remembrance” [II Peter 1:12]. 

What hindered them from obtaining the promise? Remember this promise never came to us now. This same promise has been there and it standeth sure.

No human being has put on immortality. No human being has ever entered paradise. We are entering it at the same time drawn from all the ages because it is the same Gospel. the same Christ from Garden of Eden down here.

That is why in the end this generation is going to account not only for our own sins; even for the sin that was committed in the Garden of Eden where Cain killed Abel. Is it not scripture? Don’t you believe it?

In other words, if we are going to account for the sins that started in the Garden of Eden, we are also going to inherit all that God promised Abraham. Is it not true? If we are Christ, we are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise which the Law that came into effect 430 years after the promise can never, never, never cancel or make of non-effect.

Then of what purpose is the Law serving? The Law is there to trim down the crowd. The essence of the Law is to trim down the crowd. To reveal those God can never save because the anger of the Lord will always rest upon them 24 hours of the day because they normally apply adult sense, adult wisdom, adult intelligence that will lead to all forms of subtlety and craftiness.

Page 35 verse 14 That is the condition. Let the wicked forsake his ways and unrighteous thoughts. What makes you unrighteous? There is no other thing if not the thoughts of your heart… “There is no other thing if not the thoughts and the imaginations of his heart”. Why? He failed to develop child-like heart.

What makes you unrighteous? There is no other thing if not the thoughts of your heart. That is the reason why your heart can never be right.

“That is the reason why your heart can never be right”. And as long as your heart can never be right which means; you are always in the wrong.

Song: I know my God will make a way for me if I shun the wrong and do the right.

 “If I shun the wrong and begin to do the right, my God will make a way for me, make a way for you. But you cannot continue in the wrong, shunning away the right path and expect to see yourself in paradise. Impossible for Good to tell lies.

What makes you unrighteous? There is no other thing if not the thoughts of your heart. That is the reason why your life can never be right. Anyone who forgets something every now and then has something he or she is thinking in his heart…

What you are thinking is superseding. What you are thinking in your heart is what you have esteemed above the word of God. It takes an adult to do that; use his five senses. And once he enters Satan’s garrison, Satan’s prison yard, the whole world will be in his heart, in his brain until with his eyes he will be conjecturing everything as if they are real; adult heart not child-like heart.

 Before you know it, even if you blow the horn on the gate he will not hear. Shout and shout he will not hear. He will be there for what he is thinking has closed the ears, closed the heart. The physical structure is there.  The real person has travelled out. That is adult sense verses child-like heart. Amen.

Child-like heart is developed. Did you get it?  “It is developed”. How do you develop it? Develop the right attitude towards the word of God.  Take a decision that I will be doing everything at His word. I can never consult any familiar spirit before taking any decision. I will always trust God. I will always consult God for there is no human being who is outside the will of God that is not operating with familiar spirit.

  That is why some will tell you that there is a sign I normally see. Once I see it; look at what will happen. “I went to bed last night look at what happened. Now it has happened again”. You are romancing with familiar spirit. 

But you can never have one that will point you to the word of God, that will ask you why you are disobeying, that will show you danger ahead.  No! A sure sign that you are romancing with familiar spirit.

What makes it familiar? You have been befriending that spirit for too long. And whenever it comes, you say; you are happily welcome.  Communication now starts. That is why you see a man soliloquizing. Yes! See a man soliloquizing. A little while you see him raising his hands up. Amen.

These are the people that normally eat in the dream. They eat in the dream. They eat, they drink, they attend parties in the dream. These are the people. Amen.

Anyone who claims to forgets something every now and then has something he or she is thinking in his or her heart.  There is something such a fellow thinks is more important which is occupying his or her mind.

Sure! That goes to show that he is applying; adult heart, adult sense, reasoning. He has never seen danger ahead. I said “. He has never seen danger ahead”.  Because the devil has blinded his heart so much.

Page 28 verse 22: when we hear that the thoughts of God towards us are the thoughts of good, peace and progress and not of evil to give an expected end. How does He make His thoughts manifest in us? It is through His word. If you do not hear the spoken Word from God you can never know what God is thinking concerning you. It is through the spoken word from God that you know the mind of God concerning you.

 That person that will see you on the path of foolishness; flog you, bring you back and show you the better way, are His thoughts towards you not thoughts of good? 

He that warns you with His word pointing you to the right path where you will benefit, is it not out of love? He that points you on the way you will follow even when you have not embarked on the journey, does He want you to miss the way? If you want to show someone the right path, show him when he has not started the journey. Amen.

Brethren, if we remain here till morning the Son of Man will never run short of strength. But this is our evening service.

You might be asking; Daddy has been talking and talking. We programmed that we are going to read the Great Sermon. Yes! There are nuggets we heard in the morning; “be very, very careful about over protection of self-ego”. Be very careful.

So the little exhortation I gave you tonight, it has just one thing.  The book of Revelation says; “let him that has ear hear what the Spirit of God is saying to every elect of God”. That is my title.

Let him that has ear hear, let him hear what the Spirit of Christ is saying to every elect of God.

I am not talking to the whole world. I am talking to God’s own children who have already been promised eternal life. And it is in the hope of that eternal life that we now rejoice exceedingly in doing God a service according to His will.

On this note, I say thank you tonight and let us have a very peaceful, blissful and quite night rest. With Heavenly trances, Heavenly visions, Heavenly dreams that will metamorphose into reality. Thank you.
