...If I say Almighty God will not slaughter Me, who is the Almighty to begin with? If I am afraid that God will slaughter Me, which God will slaughter Me? Let Me tell you: I am the only Being that can lay down His life and pick it. Believe it if you can……

INTRODUCTION

PRAYER

Let us bow down our heads.

Heavenly Father, we bow down before You this morning. We adore You. We reverence You. We worship You, Almighty God, the Creator of the whole universe.

We have sung our praises unto You as the sacrifices of our lips. We have yielded our hearts unto You, praying that You help us, O LORD to give You a reasonable service by presenting our bodies before You holy and purified in Thy sight by Your Word.

Father, we are standing in Your presence this morning because You gave us the enabling life, the enabling spirit and power to wake up from our bed, for when we slept, we passed on. When we woke up, we became human beings again.

 If we slept and never came back alive, that would have been death, for there is nothing called death if not permanent sleep. But you made our own temporary. We slept peacefully and You woke us up to continue to worship You hear on earth.

We say, May Your Name be glorified forever and ever through Christ our LORD, for not everybody that went to bed woke up this morning alive and healthy.

Not all will wake up and remember Your goodness and mercy. Your loving-kindness, Your protection, Your blessings, even to have that time, Father to say “THANK YOU” to You in appreciation.

But You have put in our hearts the desire to appreciate You, to worship and adore you, to lift up Your Holy Name in praises, because of who you are to us, to this Family and to all Your children worldwide.

Father, we say THANK YOU. For Your bountiful mercies and protection, we say THANK YOU. Father for offering us the gift of salvation, even eternal life without demanding anything from us other than implicit obedience to Your Word, we say a big THANK YOU, for with money, we cannot purchase life.

We cannot even purchase, O God the life we are living today. Neither can we think of purchasing this eternal life with money. These are free gifts from You. We say THANK YOU. For giving us believing hearts to believe the truth, we say THANK YOU.

Gathering at Thy feet in the earlier hours of this morning, like the Psalmist said, “Early hours of the morning, I wake up with my entire family and give praise to the LORD God Almighty, my Maker and my Creator.” That, we are doing this hour.

Father, bless us as we gather at Thy feet, for unto You shall the gathering of your people be. Unto You, we have come this morning to renew our strength in Your presence, for we believe this morning O God, that we are not drunk. We are with all our senses correct.

We believe O God, that you have something for us this morning. Release the package to us. Our hearts are open. Our ears are open. And we are willing, Father to listen attentively and to obey for our own good.

Create no room for the devil, O God to anoint any of us falsely to distract our attention. Let Thy Holy Spirit possess us fully to the extent that no room shall be created in our being to listen to any discordant tone, no matter how it is trying to breeze into our memory. Lock it out completely.

Father, open our eyes of understanding to recognize O God, who we are, Who You are, and why it is necessary that we must remain obedient, faithful and loyal, even till the end of the journey, for no athlete is crowned midway.

It is when the athlete gets to the end that he gets the coveted trophy.

Help us to endure all trials and temptations that come our way on a daily basis, holding on to the profession of our Faith in Christ without wavering till the end.

LORD, we bow down to Your reverence. And remember before Your presence, all our children in distant lands. You know their locations; some in Bonny, some in Lagos, some in Nsukka and some in Enugu and the entire Brethren O God, in their various families throughout the whole world.

All the Elect whose names were written in the Lamb’s Book of life before the world began, and who are still there, making sure that their names are not erased, but who are fighting this battle of Faith, give them a helping hand.

Even this morning, whatever wherewith we shall be blessed, use it to bless them all. All the Ministers here present, who You are likely to use this morning to encourage, by way of reading of the sermon, preparing our minds and our hearts to escape from all the devices of the devil as we continue to put all these precious Words into remembrance, Father bless them this morning with Thy Holy Spirit.

Give them the Spirit of boldness and utterance that they will dictate Thy Word to the believers of Thy Word and the doers of Thy Word, that all of us might be saved together.

Let there not be even one that shall be declared missing in Paradise on that Great morning when salvation of our souls shall be made complete. And that is when these our mortal bodies today shall be clothed with immortality.

Death will cease. Suffering will cease. Troubles and temptations, trials, sicknesses and all whatnot will come to an end.

Father, until then, keep us on our knees, praying and meditating, looking up to You, O God for that promise to come to pass. May we patiently wait for it.

Though it tarries, may we never be wearied. May we never faint. May we never draw back. May we always trek forward to the saving of our souls. Let there be nothing that can compel us to deny our Faith in Christ, for that will mean eternal destruction. That will mean running the race in vain.

Father, do not allow that to happen. Uphold us safely till the end, for it is not in the power of any man to sustain himself. Save us to the utmost, seeing that we have come to You and to You alone, believing that you are the only Faithful Creator that has the power to save all that is committed into Your hands against all the odds of this life.

Father, we rest our case at Thy feet, believing that, having hidden our lives in you, the Rock of Ages, nothing by day or by night called evil shall befall us. We shall be saved O God from all harassments and embarrassments, perils and troubles of this life.

We shall be saved to the utmost. Our souls must be preserved, Father, in Paradise. We shall never smell hellfire. Neither shall we approach the White Throne Judgment.

Having been judged already now in the flesh by Your Word, declare us O LORD God of Hosts justified, freely discharged and acquitted, standing before spotless, wrapped in Your righteousness, waiting for the blast of the whistle.

Until then, keep us in His presence. Keep us O God. Father, looking up to You for help, may You never O God, reject us at the end.

To your Name alone we give the Glory and not unto us. To Your Name alone, Almighty God we give the Glory, and not unto us.

Make a Name for Yourself in our lives, in this Family and in our extant families, now and forevermore, for Your Name’s sake, we pray. Amen. Be seated.

IN MY FAMILY, I GATHERED THEM, NOT LIKE JOB. JOB WAS GATHERING HIS CHILDREN PERADVENTURE THEY HAVE CURSED GOD. IT WAS NOT SO WITH MY FAMILY. I GATHERED THEM TO TELL THEM THAT THEY ARE A PART OF MY MINISTRY. THEY ARE PARTAKERS OF MY MINISTRY – THAT IS THE CHURCH WHERE I AM THE OVERSEER. I AM SAYING THAT THE SEED OF THE FRUIT IS GERMINATING, BECAUSE I AM AN ABLE MINISTER OF THE NEW TESTAMENT, I AM NOT ELI. I AM NOT DAVID. I AM NOT MOSES, BUT SOME MAY LIKE TO GO AFTER SUCH PEOPLE. IT IS NOT FOR ME. WHAT I AM HOLDING HAS POWER ENOUGH. WHAT I AM HOLDING IS NOT WEAK. I AM HOLDING A SPIRITUAL LAW, NOT A CARNAL LAW. WHAT I AM HOLDING IS PROFITABLE AND NOT UNPROFITABLE.

A FAMILY MUST BE CREDITED TO GOD

We are going to continue from where we stopped last night. This is Part 2 of the Message, DAILY GUIDE FOR ALL ELECT OF GOD WORLDWIDE.

A MUST! A handbook. A handy Message for every Elect of God worldwide that is wishing himself survival in these last days’ trials as we near the end, when men’s hearts are failing because of fear. When the entire world has departed from the truth about God.

They have fallen away from the Faith. Hence, we see a total moral decay. We see unparalleled lawlessness and violence everywhere. We see the world returning, according to prophecy, to the days of Noah and to the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, to the days of Jericho.

And the Almighty God consecrated you and I, set us apart for Himself that we should not be a part of the evil that is prevalent in our own day. We should be a separated Family unto God, Holy unto Him.

In a world that is full of wickedness, borne out of religion, for nothing promotes wickedness and hypocrisy more than religion. And religion is nothing but one’s belief about God.

Some do not even believe that God exists, which reflects in their daily character. Some believe that God exists, but the form He exists, they do not know and they do not want to know.

The majority do not believe that Almighty God will judge every action of man, be it good or bad. It must be brought to judgment.

14FOR GOD SHALL BRING EVERY WORK INTO JUDGMENT, WITH EVERY SECRET THING, WHETHER IT IS GOOD OR EVIL. [Ecclesiastes 12:14 AMP]

Neither do they believe that He is the rewarder of those that do good and those that do evil.

12"Behold, I am coming soon! MY REWARD IS WITH ME, AND I WILL GIVE TO EVERYONE ACCORDING TO WHAT HE HAS DONE. [Revelation 22:12 NIV]

The consciousness of eternal judgment and eternal hellfire and eternal life is no longer in their programme at all.

Humanity is bent on pleasing themselves and no longer God. Doing as they wish, desiring unnecessary independence, “Let nobody ever touch me or talk to me. My life belongs to me. If I perish, let me perish. Go your way, O Prophet of God.”

You might be thinking that you are the first that said it or behaved that way, suggesting that you have no need for God. You are just adding your name to the number of such men and women who acted that way in time past.

When the Prophets of God rose up early in the morning, warning them to depart from iniquity and do good; to depart from evil and run back to God, they [the people] laughed them to scorn.

They killed some. They ridiculed them. Some were sent out of their cities. They ignored them, treated their Words with naked ignominy, declaring the Prophets fools who had no occupation, and who have nothing good to offer themselves than to preach the Gospel of Christ.

This is because, to a fool, the preaching of the Gospel of Christ is foolishness and for those who do not know the value of life, for the fool believes that he knows the value of life more than everybody.

He does not know that he is woefully ignorant of the impending judgment of God that hangs on him or her for treating the Word of God with contempt; for treating the Prophets of God with contempt by setting aside their Words that they might establish their own ways which will lead them to destruction.

9And He said to them, You have a fine way of rejecting [thus thwarting and nullifying and doing away with] the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition (your own human regulations)! [Mark 7:9 AMP]

And God severed this Family from all other families upon the earth, declared it Holy unto Himself, consecrated, set apart to Himself, from where He will judge the entire world.

6And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests, a holy nation [consecrated, set apart to the worship of God]. These are the words you shall speak to the Israelites. [Exodus 19:6 AMP]

If, in the world of Noah, only Noah and His family were the people God found worthy, righteous, holy; and God said, “As it was in the days of Noah; as it was in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, so shall it be in the day when THE SON OF MAN shall be revealed.”

26And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of THE SON OF MAN. 27They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

28Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;29but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.30Even thus shall it be in the day when THE SON OF MAN is revealed.

Do you not know that there must be a family that must be credited to God whenever THE SON OF MAN shall be revealed? True or false?

If THE SON OF MAN came, and there is no consecrated Family, a family that is set apart for God and for God alone, who are conscious of doing God a service according to His will, it then means there would not be a Noah in our day. It then means the Word of God has failed.

The moment the world returns to the state of Sodom and Gomorrah; to the state of Noah’s day, expect the handpicked family, notably Noah who was complete in number except the first son, who was errant.

41So he said: "Embark ye on the Ark, In the name of Allah, whether it move or be at rest! For my Lord is, be sure, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful!" 42So the Ark floated with them on the waves (towering) like mountains, and Noah called out to his son, who had separated himself (from the rest): "O my son! embark with us, and be not with the unbelievers!"

43The son replied: "I will betake myself to some mountain: it will save me from the water." Noah said: "This day nothing can save, from the command of Allah, any but those on whom He hath mercy! "And the waves came between them, and the son was among those overwhelmed in the Flood. [Surah 11:41 - 43]

May it never be so to Me and to this Family. Our first son MUST be there. He will never be another Absalom. Neither will he be the first son of Noah.

Rather, he will live to correct the errors, to prove all wrong that a first son can worship God rightly and take a kingly position in Paradise as a Prince. I say it because wherever he is, he is hearing My Voice.

To all of you here, you are to cancel, bring to naught in your own day, correct the imbalance in the family of Eli where his sons messed up the temple of worship and they desecrated the Ark of Covenant, for which cause the Glory of God departed from Israel.

You are to correct that error. You must take it up as your own challenge that there shall never be an Ichabod in this family; a renegade.

18When he mentioned the ark of God, Eli fell backward off his chair by the side of the gate. His neck was broken and he died, for he was an old man and heavy. He had led Israel forty years.

19His daughter-in-law, the wife of Phinehas, was pregnant and near the time of delivery. When she heard the news that the ark of God had been captured and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead, she went into labor and gave birth, but was overcome by her labor pains.

20As she was dying, the women attending her said, "Don't despair; you have given birth to a son." But she did not respond or pay any attention.

21She named the boy Ichabod, saying, "The glory has departed from Israel"- because of the capture of the ark of God and the deaths of her father-in-law and her husband. 22She said, "The glory has departed from Israel, for the ark of God has been captured." [1 Samuel 4:19 – 22 NIV]

There should not be an evil heart of unbelief traceable to this Family; or to a man or a woman in this Family in departing from the true God.

How do you depart from the true God? When you say no to the Word of the Prophet the Messenger, where God has veiled Himself in your own day, God’s own Envoy, from where He is reaching you, from where you have the hope of salvation. Who is ordained your Instructor, your Guide, your Teacher, your Leader; When you say no to His Word, you are doomed. You become the Ichabod. The Glory of God will depart from you.

But in this Family, there can never be an Ichabod. How I wish all of you will regard yourselves as members of this Family and no longer as strangers and foreigners.

Regard yourselves as fellow citizens of this Family which is a representation of the nation of God; A nation of holiness; so that iniquity will stop in your lives. Carelessness will stop. Lawlessness will stop.

All the families that have been designated to this Family, gradually, I am about detaching them. I have seen reasons why I will detach almost all.

This is because they are not walking towards making full proof of their membership of this Holy Family of God.

You can be a member of the church in your family or a member of a church anywhere, but not a member of the state and common wealth of the family of God. Membership is spiritual and not carnal.

And that is where God is worshipped spiritually and not mechanically. God is worshipped and honoured in spirit and in truth.

This Morning, I want us to go to the Message as compiled by our precious Pastor which I gave another title in the interest of everybody because the compilation is nothing but Messages preached and handed down by THE SON OF MAN to the entire Bride worldwide.

They are quotes that you must recall to memory every minute of the day as a Guide against error and from last minute falling away from the Faith of Christ, thereby labouring in vain.

This morning, I want somebody who is being led by the Spirit of Truth to come to the pulpit and read it for Me. if you know are being led; you may be led in the spirit, but your mouth will not open.

I want your mouth to be open. I want your heart to be open. I also want your brain and your ears to be open. Do not read to us alone. Read to yourself as well. Read with perfect understanding, and pass it across.

To God, we give the glory as we pay attention for His Name’s sake. Amen.

PASTOR EMMANUEL INNAH

Approved and Moderated

BY THE SON OF MAN

“And in the last days, as we are told, as it was in the days of Sodom, the Bride will be united by the Word of God made manifest in the flesh.” That is, in the last days, the Word will become a human being, the point of unity of the Bride. Whatever the Bride is made up of will be united in the Word made flesh. He is the rallying point. Have I not told you that as long as I am in your midst, I am the point of unity, the point of reconciliation? For without Me none of you will be reconciled with God.

HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD? [1]

We thank God who made it possible for all of us to be alive. If we are not alive, there is no way we can be in His presence to worship Him. To Him, we give all the glory, honour, thanksgiving, praise, worship and adoration.

Brethren, before we consider the little exhortation, “Awful implications of unbelief”, I will like us to examine or evaluate ourselves once again to know if we really know this God that has come to dwell with us. Otherwise, we will have ourselves to blame at the end.

Brethren it is necessary to put ourselves in remembrance once again, seeing that we are all now in our homes worshipping He that has called us to Himself, lest we be carried away by the dictates of our hearts instead of the revelation of the truth that comes from the Throne of Grace.

This is expedient because it is at this period of waiting that people wander away from God without knowing;

Establishing their own pattern of worship,...Yes!! ...which is based on the imaginations of their heart, instead of on the revealed pattern? Having a form of religion, but denying the power of God. Sure!!!

There is vomit in families today because of unbelief which in turn is because of not knowing who this God (Apostle Peter Odoemena (Exalted be He) really is.

In the message "WHO IS THIS MAN (THE SON OF MAN)” PART 1 VOL. 1 Page 94 verse 24-25 Preached on the 8th May 2016, The LORD said, "24It is unbelievable but it is true, that you can know somebody but not fully. Knowing Me means knowing Me fully. Knowing Christ means knowing His attribute. You must know that he is Holy, he hates rebellion.

MIDNIGHT CRY Volume 1; Page 22 verse 25-27 and page 68 verses 67-69 preached on 26th April, 2020

25YOU CAN BE IN THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE SAINTS. YET, YOU DO NOT KNOW WHO GOD IS.

You can be in this Family, living with God without knowing Him as God. True or false?

NO MATTER HOW HE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO YOU, YOU ARE STILL HAVING YOUR DOUBTS.

26YOU MAY NOT EXPRESS IT WITH YOUR MOUTH BUT YOUR ATTITUDE TOWARD HIS WORD, YOUR RESPONSE TOWARD HIS INSTRUCTION WILL REVEAL TO ALL THAT KNOW HIM THAT REALLY, YOU HAVE NOT YET RECOGNIZED HIM AS GOD.

MIDNIGHT CRY. A Message to have!

27YOU ARE STILL EQUATING YOURSELF WITH GOD, FOR YOUR RESPONSE TO HIS INSTRUCTION SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.

28IF HE IS GOD WHO DEMANDS THAT ALL FLESH SHOULD BOW DOWN AND WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH, IS THERE ANY OPTION? IS THERE ANY OPTION? ANY NEGOTIATION? THE IDEA OF HAVING YOUR WAY DOES NOT ARISE.

29IF YOU RECOGNIZE THAT THIS IS THE PERSON THAT BROUGHT YOU INTO EXISTENCE; YOU RECOGNIZE THAT YOU ARE A HUMAN BEING TODAY IS THE LOVE OF THIS MAN THAT BROUGHT YOU FROM NOTHING TO SOMETHING, AND YOU RECOGNIZE WHO HE IS, HISWORD WILL BE MAKING POSITIVE IMPACT IN YOUR LIFE.

30YOUR RESPONSE TO HIS WORD WILL CONVINCE HIM THAT YOU HAVE COME TO THE RECOGNITION OF WHO HE IS.

Some brought God into existence. Some claim they made God whatever He is today. The creature assuming the position of the Creator, claiming to be the one promoting God and promoting the things of God.

HE IS THE ONE THAT WILL SAVE GOD AT LAST FROM GOING TO HELL. WHY? HE IS PAYING LIP SERVICE TO WORSHIPPING GOD. HIS CANDIDACY IS EVEN IN VAIN. THAT IS A REBEL.

A REBEL EXALTS HIMSELF ABOVE THE WORD OF GOD. AND THE WORD OF GOD IS GOD. THAT IS WHAT MAKES HIM A REBEL. DID YOU GET THE MESSAGE?

WHAT MAKES ONE A REBEL IS THAT HE EXALTS HIMSELF ABOVE THE WORD OF GOD. AND THE NAME OF GOD IS NOTHING BUT THE WORD OF GOD.

HE [A REBEL] IS TOO BIG TO BOW LOW TO ALL GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS. HE IS TOO BIG TO OBEY GOD. THAT IS WHAT MAKES HIM A REBEL. IT IS AN INSTINCT.

That is why when we were at Ugwumba Street we received a Message long ago about the year 1993 from Apostle Luke Ojiakor titled BEWARE OF THE REBELLIOUS INSTINCT THAT IS IN MAN.

An instinct is something that is not thought about. It is not pre-planned. You never intended to go that way or act that way, but all of a sudden, you see yourself neck-deep into a character, a behaviour, and an attitude that is very hateful in the sight of God. And it is very difficult to correct that person because he is very very repulsive.

He rejects every move by anybody to point him to that mistake. That is what makes him a rebel. A rebel exalts his self-ego above the knowledge of God.

And the Bible said we should bring down or bring low any thought, any imagination, any feeling that will try to exalt itself in our hearts or in our minds, contrary to the Word of God.

5casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; [2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV]

The Bible said, “Cast it down.” Put it under your footstool. Do not allow it to hold sway over you.

BUT THE REBEL IS ONE THAT TAKES DELIGHT IN ALLOWING HIS EMOTIONS, IMPULSES, FEELINGS AND IMAGINATIONS TO HAVE OVERRIDING INFLUENCE OVER THE TRUTH FROM GOD.

Hence he is incorrigible, for he is an obstinate and powerful transgressor, not willing to repent. An unrepentant heart. That is a rebel.

31REMEMBER THAT THE GOD WE ARE SERVING IS AN UNRECOGNIZED GOD TO MANY. ALTHOUGH THEY ARE GATHERING IN THE FELLOWSHIP WITH US, THEY ARE YET TO RECOGNIZE AND ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AS GOD.

67THAT IS WHY YOU MUST FIND YOURSELF WHERE YOU BELONG TO. [1] HAVE YOU REALLY RECOGNIZED WHO GOD IS? [2] HAVE YOU ACKNOWLEDGED HIM AS GOD? IF YOU HAVE DONE THAT, THEN [3] TO WHAT EXTENT HAVE YOU TAKEN HIS WORD SERIOUS? TO WHAT EXTENT HAVE YOU OBEYED HIS WORD?

These are pertinent questions we must answer as individuals. These questions are all enshrined in the Message MIDNIGHT CRY which we have forgotten.

And our Brother took pains to gather all these nuggets together, having only but one aim, which is to always put us in remembrance of the disastrous effects of unbelief.

It is not a big thing to be an unbeliever. It is not a big deal. It does not take disobeying a passage or the whole Message to be an unbeliever

67THAT IS WHY YOU MUST FIND YOURSELF WHERE YOU BELONG TO. [1] HAVE YOU REALLY RECOGNIZED WHO GOD IS?

[2] HAVE YOU ACKNOWLEDGED HIM AS GOD?

IF YOU HAVE DONE THAT, THEN [3] TO WHAT EXTENT HAVE YOU TAKEN HIS WORD SERIOUS? TO WHAT EXTENT HAVE YOU OBEYED HIS WORD?

68TO WHAT EXTENT HAVE YOU WALKED ACCORDING TO HIS PRECEPTS?

TO WHAT EXTENT HAVE YOU WALKED WITH HIM SO AS TO BECOME PERFECT?

69WALKING WITH HIM MEANS DOING EVERYTHING ACCORDING TO HIS COMMAND. DOING EVERYTHING ACCORDING TO HIS INSTRUCTIONS,...

Did God say, minus? EVERY MEANS EVERY. EVERYTHING MEANS EVERYTHING.

ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD to them that love God; to them who are called according to His purpose. Did He say, minus? ALL means ALL. EVERY means EVERY.

But we see people approaching obedience half-heartedly, even when God said clearly that partial obedience is no obedience. Disobey one Word from that instruction, you are guilty of all.

That is why William Branham said, “A believer believeth all things, provided it is from God.” You do not say, “I believe this. I will not believe that.” It marks you out. You are a selective believer.

You only believe that which favours you, but the one that corrects your errors, indicts and rebukes you, you will say no to them, maybe because they are too harsh on you.

Why? You are still trying to have your own way. You have a contribution to make.

WORKING ACCORDING TO HIS RULES, DOING THAT WHICH IS PLEASING TO HIM AT ALL TIMES, AND NOT TRYING TO DO YOUR OWN WILL BUT HIS OWN WILL.

Just like Noah. The Bible said that he obeyed God and in all things.

5And NOAH DID ACCORDING UNTO ALL that the Lord commanded him. [Genesis 7:5 KJV]

5And NOAH DID ALL that the Lord commanded him. [Genesis 7:5 AMP]

5So NOAH DID EVERYTHING the LORD commanded him. [Genesis 7:5 LB]

And the others that found favour with God and were declared fit for heaven for they obeyed God in all things.

There is a difference between Knowing about Him, being aware of Him and being practically acquainted with Him. You may know Apostle Peter Odoemena as THE SON OF MAN (Blessed be to His name) without having practical experience of who He really is.

BRETHREN THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BELIEVING THAT THE SON OF MAN IS GOD AND HAVING PERSONAL REVELATION OF HIS SUPREME MAJESTY AS THE CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.

The former may be obtained by hear-say, what people said concerning Him or what you read about him but the latter is only obtained through the transcendental knowledge and divine revelation.

John 14:8-9 Amplified.8Philip said to Him, Lord, show us the Father cause us to see the Father-that is all we ask; then we shall be satisfied.

Are you here still asking the question show me the Father? Show us a sign that I may believe that you are God? You may not say it with your mouth but in your heart, you have asked a thousand of these questions.

...DO YOU KNOW WHO GOD IS? NOBODY KNOWETH THE FATHER BUT THE SON. NOBODY KNOWETH THE SON BUT THE FATHER AND TO WHOMSOEVER THE SON SHALL CHOOSE TO REVEAL. I AM IN THE BOSOM OF THE FATHER AND HE THAT IS IN THE BOSOM OF THE FATHER KNOWS THE MIND OF THE FATHER. IF I DECLARE YOU LOST, YOU ARE LOST. IF I DECLARE YOU SAVED, YOU ARE SAVED. DO YOU KNOW THE SAFE GROUND? HAVE YOU GONE THIS WAY BEFORE? DO YOU KNOW IT IS AN ACT OF STUPIDITY FOR SOMEBODY TO FIND FAULT ON THE ROAD HE HAS NEVER TRAILED BEFORE? IS THAT NOT WHAT KILLED THOSE THAT LEFT? YOU ARE SAYING THE SON OF MAN IS WRONG. HAVE YOU GONE THIS WAY BEFORE? HOW CAN YOU FIND FAULT WITH YOUR LEADER WHEN YOU DO NOT KNOW THE WAY?

HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD? [2]

The last sign have been displayed by God. And the whole wide world has seen it. If you are still expecting another sign you are doomed for there is no other sign that will be given to you but your destruction in Hell.

Even Bro James Nnadi said it and warned against it before he left us. People are still expecting Jesus Christ. I do not know what that Jesus Christ is likely to be. Maybe he is going to be after the imaginations of their own hearts.

9Jesus replied, Have I been with all of you for so long a time, and do you not recognize and know Me yet, Philip? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say then, show us the Father.

Note that Philip was sure and convinced that Jesus was the Messiah, the man Moses said will come. He is no longer in doubt whether he is the one or not, but he has not come to the full realization that He that is talking to Him is Almighty God. Otherwise, the question of show us the Father would not have come up.

He ended only in the believing level, for he has not come to the revelation that the man that was talking to him was God.

If you believe that THE SON OF MAN, Apostle Peter Odoemena (Blessed be His Most Holy Name) to be the One that William Braham, Prophet Mohammad, and other Ancient Prophets said would come and you end there, you have not known Him yet.

In other words, if you end up only believing in Him without abiding in His words. You are not better than the Devil who equally knew Him and trembles, but does not abide in the truth.

If you know Him to be Christ revealed in your day, and you do not obey His Word, have you known Him? It is better you do not know Him, for that knowledge has already sentenced you to hell.

Since you know Him as the Messiah, Saviour and He is LORD, why did you not walk towards getting eternal salvation from Him?

It is because you have devised your own way of salvation; your own way wherewith you think you can get to heaven. And that is the way which leads you to eternal destruction.

In the message, AFTER ME COMETH NO OTHER VOL. 1 Page 10 verse 15, The Lord said, 15I know I am harbouring people like that, who have been with Me over the years, following Me. All they know is that God is using Apostle Peter Odoemena. They know He received ordination from God and not from man. It is God that ordained Him. 

They do not know beyond that. You are standing on the periphery of the Faith. The tendency is there that anything can shake you out. You are not grounded. You are not rooted.

99% fall within this category. And that is why they are milling around THE SON OF MAN. They are not ready to believe in Him. And they are not ready to worship Him. Are they not fooling themselves? They are fooling themselves.

These are the people that will hear at the end, “Depart from Me, for I know you not. You were merely paying lip service to whatever you were calling your worship of Me, but your heart was too far away from Me. You were querying Me. There were many things you were querying about Me and My introduction of Who I am. Go and worship that which is clear to you. Leave Me alone. That place where you think your salvation is, go there.”

You know it is truth, you believe it, you appreciate the truth but you are not rooted in the truth. You do not have tap root in the truth.

Colossians 2:7 AMP7Have the roots [of your being] firmly and deeply planted [in Him, fixed and founded in Him], being continually built up in Him, becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and abounding and overflowing in it with thanksgiving. Amen!!!

You must be firmly rooted and grounded in Him. You must be well established in the Faith of Christ.

THE APOSTLE INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO HIS PEOPLE PART 3, VOL. 2 in the afternoon session on 29th December 1997 Camp Meeting; Page 33 verse 18 – 20.

18When you know the man you are following, then you will be in a position to know whether that man is the person you can say no to his instruction and get away with it easily or carry out his instruction half-way, half-heartedly and get away with it.

19Find out whether he is somebody you can easily fool or somebody that has decided to make himself a fool so as to fellowship with you.

20Find out if he is somebody you can outsmart or whether he is just compromising with you so as to win your soul at last.”

GOD CAN DO ANYTHING [FAITH EXPLAINED] VOL. 2; Page 42 verse 33-34 preached on 6th September 2015.

33Once He has willed it in His heart, your unbelief cannot stop it. Your unbelief, my unbelief can never stop God from doing his will. Your rebellion cannot stop it.

34HAVE YOU KNOWN GOD TO THIS POINT THAT NO MATTER YOUR DEMONSTRATIONS, YOU CAN NEVER STOP GOD FROM WHAT HE WANTS TO DO? EVEN IF YOU CALL HIM A DECEIVER, IT CAN NEVER STOP GOD FROM DOING THAT WHICH HE HAS PURPOSED TO DO.

Job 42:1-2.Then Job said to the Lord, I know that you can do all things, and that no thought or purpose of Yours can be restrained or thwarted. AMP

No thoughts or purpose of God can be thwarted or be truncated or diverted. The moment He has willed it, your rebellion means nothing.

Your criticism, your antagonism, your resentment; they mean nothing. That which God is determined to do or carry out, He must surely do it.

I love God for one thing. Before He will do it, He will bring it to the notice of the beneficiary. He [God] must alert whoever that package will come to, “See what is ahead of you. Look at what you are about to see.”

All your effort to circumvent or avert it or to make it of none effect is a sheer waste of time because He has already willed it, for that may be the only lesson that you can feel the impact, and that can cause you to bow low before the Almighty, and then stop rubbing shoulders with Him.

A fool learns his lessons in a very hard way, but a wise man; a wise fellow learns his lesson in a soft way.

A fool does not believe in a language or a Voice that comes to him softly, but takes delight in a high Voice, high tone, embarrassing one. That is the one a fool delights himself in.

A fool does not value the Words that were calmly given to him, but the one that was harshly given to him publicly in a harassing manner thereby bringing shame unto him. That is the one he will value.

God’s plan standeth sure, for He is the Master planner, nothing and no one can upset or stop His plans. Yes!!!

RAMADAN VOICE PART 2 VOL. 3 page 121 verse 12 preached 24th May 2020 at the bridal Lodge Nsugbe Anambra State.

“You do not know Him with this your natural knowledge. You must know Him through transcendental knowledge.”

This transcendental knowledge is beyond the human realm. You do not go to school to acquire it.

Transcendental knowledge means revelation from God that comes to individuals, having only but one aim: To bring you into personal relationship, personal acquaintance with the Almighty; to the Deity.

That is what transcendental knowledge is all about. You do not go to any school to acquire it. Nobody tutors you into it. You get it through in-depth meditation about God and the things of God, and the things God demands from you if you are desiring to be like God.

It is through that personal, deep enquiry which you make in a solitary meditation with God alone that you begin to get through trances sizzling into your heart and your memory, distilling there and settling down there.

You may get to a point or to a height where you will see Him, live. You see Him walk across, while you are kneeling down. You will hear His footsteps, but you open your eyes and you will see the back of a human being.

A sure sign that your meditation has brought Him down. Daniel was praying. While He was praying, God came in the person of Angel Gabriel.

He [Daniel] said, “While I was in my night prayer, praying concerning Israel, enquiring how long we have to stay in Babylon before going home, lo and behold, the man Gabriel came to me from the presence of the Almighty God. And stood by my side and said unto me, “Daniel, this day, your prayers have been answered. It remaineth only but seventy-two weeks for the people of Israel to leave Babylon for their hometown.””

Was it a collective prayer? Daniel was in deep meditation. He brought his experiences in Babylon and that of his people to bare. The rest were rejoicing, but they did not know that there was one man in there that locked up himself in prayers. And the LORD visited Him there.

20And while I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God;

21yea, while I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.

22And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.

23At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to show thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.

24Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy.[Daniel 9:20 – 24 KJV]

William Branham was Praying in his study room. All of a sudden, a young man, dark-complexioned, whom he described his weight, appeared before him and passed by, wearing white garment.

“I must tell you of the angel and the coming gift. I shall never forget the time, May 7, 1946, a very beautiful season of the year in Indiana. “Where I was still working as a game warden. ........ Now coming through the light, I SAW THE FEET OF A MAN COMING TOWARDS ME, as naturally as you would walk to me. HE APPEARED TO BE A MAN WHO, IN HUMAN WEIGHT, would weigh about two hundred pounds, CLOTHED IN A WHITE ROBE. HE HAS A SMOOTH FACE, NO BEARD, DARK HAIR DOWN TO HIS SHOULDERS, RATHER DARK-COMPLEXIONED, WITH A VERY PLEASANT COUNTENANCE, and coming closer, his eyes caught with mine.  Seeing how fearful I was, HE BEGAN TO SPEAK. “FEAR NOT…” [WILLIAM BRAHAM: A MAN SENT BY GOD by Gordon Lindsay, Page 76]

This transcendental knowledge is beyond the human realm. You do not go to school to acquire it. That is why it is by revelation. If that revelation has not struck you, you cannot worship Him for who He is. Sure!!!

Peter got this transcendental knowledge when he confessed that Jesus is the Son of the Living God, Christ, the Messiah.

And Christ confessed that flesh and blood never revealed it to Peter, “but a revelation that came from my Father who is in heaven.”

15He said to them, But who do you [yourselves] say that I am?16Simon Peter replied, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.17Then Jesus answered him, Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are you, Simon Bar-Jonah. For FLESH AND BLOOD [MEN] HAVE NOT REVEALED THIS TO YOU, BUT MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN. [Matthew 16:15 – 17 KJV]

We have heavenly revelation. We have earthly revelation. If you are earthly bound, all your prayers and meditations must be on earthly things. All your revelations must be earthly.

If you are heavenly bound, your thoughts are thoughts of heaven. Your conversations are conversations of heaven. And revelation will come to you from heaven and not from earth.

This transcendental knowledge comes from a Divine Fountain and that Fountain remains the Almighty God (The Son of Man).

BELIEVE IN MY FATHER. YOU ALSO BELIEVE IN ME. IF YOU SAY YOU BELIEVE IN MY FATHER AND REFUSE TO BELIEVE IN ME, YOU HAVE NOT BELIEVED ANYTHING. DO YOU KNOW WHO MY FATHER IS? I AM THE ONE THAT WILL INTRODUCE YOU TO MY FATHER. HOW CAN YOU SEE MY FATHER WITHOUT SEEING ME? FOR MY FATHER IS IN ME AND I AM ALSO IN HIM. I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE. HAVE YOU SEEN THE PHOTOGRAPH OF THE FATHER THAT LIVETH IN APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA? IS THERE ANY OTHER WAY THE HEADSTONE WOULD HAVE BEEN SEEN WITHOUT TAKING THE PHOTOGRAPH OF APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA? NO WAY! IT WAS APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA’S PHOTOGRAPH THAT WAS TAKEN. THUS, IN HIM IS THE FATHER REVEALED. THERE IS NO OTHER INDIVIDUAL WHOSE PHOTOGRAPH CAN BE TAKEN AND THE FATHER IS REVEALED THROUGH HIM. NEVER NEVER! FOR THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE. HOW CAN YOU SAY YOU BELIEVE IN THE FATHER AND DISBELIEVE THE SON?

In him is the Father Revealed; Preached on sunday 27th May 2012 at the Household of God, Onitsha; pg. 143 vs. 23 – 25

HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD? [3]

SPECIAL DAY [ANOTHER DAY]; Page 170 verse 83-84 preached on August 2012. Let me tell you. Whoever that will boast, let him not boast of his wealth, of his strength, of his knowledge; nor of his physical relationship with THE SON OF MAN.

LET YOUR BOAST BE THAT YOU KNOW GOD, YOU KNOW HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND YOU KNOW HIS JUDGMENT.

84STOP SEEING HIM AS GOD OF MERCY AND STOP THERE. SEE HIM ALSO AS GOD OF JUDGMENT. God judges with equity, Who does not look at anybody’s face”

THE LORD SHALL JUDGE AND VINDICATE HIS PEOLE (REVISITED) VOL. 3 page 98 verse 1 – 2. Preached 17th May 2020.You must know the Personality you are having dealings with. Knowing Him means getting acquainted with Him, with a view to discovering why He is what He is.”

St Paul said that he might know Him and the power of His resurrection.

10that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; [Philippians 3:10 KJV]

Jeremiah 9:24.24But let him who glories glory in this: that he understands AND KNOWS ME [PERSONALLY AND PRACTICALLY, DIRECTLY DISCERNING AND RECOGNIZING MY CHARACTER], that I am the Lord, Who practices loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth, for in these things I delight, says the Lord. AMP

FOOLS DISREGARD ME, CLAD IN HUMAN FORM, NOT KNOWING MY HIGHER BEING AS THE GREAT LORD OF (ALL) BEINGS. –COMMENTARY: Fools who do not have discrimination despise Me, dwelling in human form. I have taken this body in order to bless My devotees. These fools have no knowledge of My higher Being. I am the great Lord, the Supreme.[BHAGAVAD GITA;THE YOGA OF THE KINGLY SCIENCE & THE KINGLYSECRET; Page 71, Chapter 9 verse 11; Sri Swami Sivananda Translation]

“FOOLS DISREGARD ME, SEEING ME CLAD IN HUMAN FORM. THEY KNOW NOT THAT IN MY HIGHER NATURE I AM THE LORD-GOD OF ALL.” (Bhagavad Gita –The greatest devotional Book of Hinduism; Page 24, Chapter 9 [THE SCIENCE OF SCIENCES AND THE MYSTERY OF MYSTERIES] paragraph 11; Shri Purohit Swami Translation).

THE INSANE DISREGARD ME WHEN THEY MEET ME IN THE CORPORAL HUMAN FORM, FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW MY SUPREME DIVINE ESSENCE! [BHAGAVAD GITA; [Sovereign knowledge and Sovereign Mystery] Page 28, Conversation 9 verse 11; Translated by Mikhail Nikolenko]

Many have not come to the full knowledge of He that is in our midst. He is the Creator of heaven and earth. He that exists alone. That is why they take His Words as the words of mere men.

UNTIL YOU COME TO THE FULL REVELATION OF WHO HE IS, HIS WORDS WILL NOT MAKE ANY MEANING TO YOU. Sure!!!

Let us go the message GO BACK TO THE BEGINNING, Page 26 verse 11; preached on 20th April 2003. 11God is no longer neglecting ignorance; God is treating naked unbelief among His people. My people do not know me. If they had known me, they will not be pointing me back to the beginning.

Why drawing the hand of the clock back by not depending, relying and confiding in Him?

If we have believed the Almighty God in our midst why are we not obeying His words? If we have known Him for what He is, I do not think He will still be shouting on us till this very moment.

Hebrews 6:1Therefore let us go on and get past the elementary stage in the teachings and doctrine of Christ (the Messiah), advancing steadily toward the completeness and perfection that belong to spiritual maturity.

Let us not again be laying the foundation of repentance and abandonment of dead works (dead formalism) and the faith [by which you turned] to God. AMP

Let us advance steadily to spiritual maturity, spiritual growth which has been the essence of His giving us all these life-transforming Messages.

Oh! Glory be to God in the highest for He has rigged away our human intellect, feelings, instinct and imagination so as to project us to a higher spiritual realm.

Brethren, He that ascended is the same that descended. The Almighty God is the one that descended to lead and set the captive free. Have you really known He that descended?

Have we really submitted ourselves to Him, that His Word will rig away our human intellect, feelings, thoughts and imaginations that built a strong barrier in us against the truth?

Hence, we prefer worshipping imaginary God to Reality. Hence it is becoming difficult for us to embrace the Reality. Rather, we prefer to walk in the way of our forefathers, who worshipped something they know not.

Even when He revealed Himself to them, they did not believe in Him. He came to His own, but His own never believed Him for Who He is.

He came unto his own, and his own received him not. [John 1:11 KJV]

They were having their doubt. You cannot know a man more than he knows himself.

You must know Him beyond the badger skin (physical realm) otherwise, you have not known Him.

No one has ever gone up into the presence of God except THE SON OF MAN who has always been in the presence of the Most High God. Do you really know Him to that extent?

John 3:13. “And no man hath ascended up to heaven but he that hath come down from heaven, even THE SON OF MAN which is in heaven. KJV

“And yet no one has ever gone up to heaven, but there is One Who has come down from heaven- The Son of Man (Himself) who dwells, has His home, in heaven.” AMP

And that is why God has made Him our Guide, our Instructor, our Adviser, The Main Man, Whom the LORD God Almighty knows to have the perfect knowledge of the Way.

He came and introduced Himself as the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man will ever get there without Him. He came to make the way to Paradise a possibility. Is it not true?

Why then do we find it difficult to follow One that is sent to come and bring us home when we do not know the way? We are only having an imaginary vision of how Heaven should be.

Some will point towards the sky. Some will point towards the earth. Where is that Paradise?

Ephesians 4:9-10 NIV9(What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly region? 10He who descended is the very one who ascended higher that all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.)

Have you seen that it is God that came down to this earthly plane, in order to lead us, His children safely home?

No One has ever gone up into the presence of God except the One who came down from that Presence,...Amen!!!...the Son of Man. Apostle Peter Odoemena blessed be His Holy Name. Amen.

Let us use one particular nation, America, for example. Can you stay in Nigeria and see America? America remains a name in a part of the world as long as you have never been there.

America to us, when we are talking is an imaginary place. You can never use your motor to travel to America.

But recently, travelling increased in these last days. We now have our Brothers and Sisters that shuttle America by air. Is it not true?

They call us from America. They do business in America, after which they come back and settle with us. With their experiences, are we not sure that America exists here on earth.

America is a part of the earth. Is it not true? At the end of the flight and their plane landed in America, did they not descend to the ground and walked about on foot on the American soil?

Is the land they walked on different from the land here? Is the water different? Is the air different? But one that is Nigeria will be thinking that America is in the moon. America is here on earth. America exists.

SO, PARADISE EXISTS. HE THAT IS DWELLING THERE AND CAME FROM THERE, KNOWS THE LOCATION. HE KNOWS WHERE PARADISE IS.

AND BECAUSE YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN THERE, YOU ARE ONLY DESIRING TO BE THERE, IT TAKES AN AMBASSADOR, AN ENVOY TO TAKE YOU THERE.

1Timothy6:16 AMP “Who alone has immortality [in the sense of exemption from every kind of death] and lives in unapproachable light, Whom no man has ever seen or can see. Unto Him be honor and everlasting power and dominion. Amen (so be it).

The only person that dwells in that unapproachable light remains THE SON OF MAN, Apostle Peter Odoemena. Exalted be He.

NOTE WHAT IT SAID. A MAN THAT HAS IMMORTALITY AS GOD EMBEDDED IT IN HIM. AND WILL NEVER TASTE OF DEATH UNLESS HE WANTS TO DROP IT.

HE HAS THE POWER TO LAY DOWN HIS LIFE. HE HAS THE POWER TO PICK IT AGAIN. HE IS TOTALLY INDESTRUCTIBLE, FOR HE IS IMMORTAL. IMMORTALITY DWELLS IN HIM.

THAT IS THE INDIVIDUALITY, THE PERSONALITY WE ARE DISCUSSING. IF GOD NEVER MADE HIM SO, WE WOULD HAVE GONE THE WAY OF OTHERS A LONG TIME AGO. HE WILL NEVER LEAVE THE SCENE UNTIL HIS TIME IS DUE.

And that is when He must have accomplished His mission. Then, He returns to His original Glory.

Do you know that this Man you are neglecting His Words is the Rock of Ages. The scripture made it clear in 1st Corinthians 10:4 that that Rock that follow them in the wilderness is Christ.

1 Corinthians 10: 44And they all drank the same spiritual (supernaturally given) drink. For they drank from a spiritual Rock which followed them [produced by the sole power of God Himself without natural instrumentality], and the Rock was Christ. AMP

There is one thing that keeps My heart afloat. There is nobody here who does not have power over his decisions. Every human being has power over his or her decisions. In the same way, you have power over your character. Any life you have decided to live is the one you will live. And you have chosen it because it gives you joy. So, check the life you have decided to live, and that is what determines your eternal destiny, whether you like it or not.

HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD? [4]

In the same vein, that Divine Light that stayed with them in Egypt, that led the way in the wilderness was Christ.

Exodus 10:23 “The Egyptians could not see one another, nor did anyone rise from his place for three days; but all the Israelites had natural light in their dwellings. AMP

Exodus 13:21-22: 21And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by night and day:

22He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people. KJV

This Divine Light, which is Christ stopped Saul who, after his encounter with the Divine Light, was renamed Paul on his way to Damascus.

Acts 9:1-5 KJV “1And Saul, yet breathing out threatening and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,

2And desire of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem

3And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:

4And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me.5And he said, who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest:  it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

The Divine Light in the form of a bright star led the wise men from the East to where the Messiah was born.

Matthew 2:1 – 2, 9 KJV. 1Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2saying where is he that is born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. .......

9When they had heard the king, they departed, AND, LO, THE STAR, WHICH THEY SAW IN THE EAST, WENT BEFORE THEM, TILL IT CAME AND STOOD OVER WHERE THE YOUNG CHILD WAS.

The Divine Light came down in our midst as a ball of light during Camp Meeting precisely on 31st of December, 1994 which turned off all electrical gadgets.

5You see, He (God in the form of the Pillar of cloud) has been coming and coming and coming until 1994; the one that nearly killed Ikwugbado, our Brother from Orlu, in the 1994 Camp Meeting.

6While we were there at G.T.C, Onitsha, Brethren came from all walks of life, Brother Eze was coming; a big man from Uli troubled him. He was coming in, a supernatural light flashed, oh! Fear God.

7Everybody saw the thing coming and was bent down. Even the tape is with us. You can play it and hear the supernatural sound it caused. The thing came in and stopped electric power, quenched the whole light, stopped electric radio, everything we were using.

8We heard kruuuuuuuuu! The thing just came and hung before the congregation, visible to the naked eyes. Before we knew it, something happened; a man was transformed and was taken up before the entire Church. Something followed it.

9When that happened, He came back again and people were shocked and the voice went forth, “Tell no man about what you have seen,” but did they close their mouths? They could not close their mouths. We compared it with Scripture when it happened at the Mountain of transfiguration.(SPIRITUAL MATURITY VOL. 1; preached on 14th May 1996 at Abuja, page 56 verse 5-9)

Brethren, the Divine Light has turned out to be a human being, God in human form. It has finally settled down in our midst as a human being, as a man.

John 8:12 KJV “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD; anyone that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the Light of life.

Remember it was this same Divine Light that visited William Branham in the form of an angel. Sure!!!

In the message, MANIFESTATION OF THE SPIRIT, preached on July 17, 1951 at Toledo, Ohio. U.S.A. by William Marrion Branham, it says; “And I said, “I do not claim to be a divine healer.” I said, “I only claim to pray for the sick.

And I claim a divine gift, that I was born in this world with, AND AN ANGEL OF GOD WHO COMES TO ME IN THE FORM OF A LIGHT.”

And I no more than had prayed my prayer till I seen a Light come on the floor. I looked up, and above it was that whirl of light, still there again, whirling around. But the first time in all my life....

It spoke to me hundreds of times. But coming walking, I heard somebody walking. I looked like that, it scared me. It would you.

And walking right to me---NOT A VISION---JUST AS NATURAL AS I AM, COME A MAN ABOUT TWO HUNDRED POUNDS IN WEIGHT. HE HAD HIS ARMS FOLDED. HE WAS A STRONG-LOOKING MAN, HAD A PEACEFUL LOOKING FACE, AND VERY CALM; HE HAD DARK HAIR TO HIS SHOULDERS, SMOOTH FACE.

And He walked up to me and looked down kind of pathetically, and said, “Do not fear.” And oh, when I heard that Voice, I know it was the same One, said, “Don’t smoke or drink.” I knew that Voice.

Brethren, what destroyed the Jews was over familiarity. Yes!!! What destroyed the Jews was over-familiarity. We know Him. We know where He was born. We know how He was raised. We are living here with His brothers and sisters. And we know His shop.

And because they know all these things about Him, that was where they stopped. And that is what stumbled them out of truth. They never recognized that He is that Supernatural Light that was with their fathers in the wilderness.

Do they actually know Him? No! They know about Him, but they do not really know Him.

You must know Him beyond the human phase, physical realm or else you do not know Him.

Brethren, do you know Him beyond this? Remember the Scriptures made it clear that He is 100% man and 100% God.

So if you only know Him in the human phase, you have not known Him yet. This is what killed the Jews. They did not know Him beyond the Badger skin.

Knowing His earthly parents and siblings, his wife and children, occupation and his hometown[that is His earthly home] knowing him as good man, a benevolent man and end there means you are yet to know him.
