DAILY GUIDE FOR ALL ELECT OF GOD WORLDWIDE – THE BACKGROUND – Part, 1 vol 2 Preached ON Friday 20th November 2020 AT THE BRIDAL LODGE, NSUGBE ANAMBRA STATE, NIGERIA BY Apostle Peter Odoemena THE SON OF MAN The Good Shepherd

My aim is to place you where you should be. We are walking to the wilderness in a single file and I am the Captain. I am in front. I expect every other person to file behind me. So, those that have wondered in front already, now, why not say, “As I thought on my ways.”

AS I THOUGHT ON MY WAYS VOL 3; preached on 24th December, 2000 at the Household of God, Onitsha; Pg. 44 vs. 29

1

NEGLECT THE TRUTH FROM GOD AND BECOME SELF-DESTRUCTIVE

Teach and urge these duties.” Do what? “Teach and urge these duties. But if anyone teaches otherwise and does not assent to the sound and wholesome messages of our Lord Jesus Christ (the  Messiah)...

Thank you. You can hear the voice sounding loud and clear. “...and the teaching which is in agreement with godliness (piety towards God),...” Piety means uprightness.

“...HE IS PUFFED UP WITH PRIDE..” If what I am saying is sounding strange; if you are repelling it; if you are rebuffing it; if you are rejecting it, it is because you are puffed up with pride.

And pride goeth before a fall. God resisteth the proud, but gives Grace to the humble.

18PRIDE GOETH BEFORE DESTRUCTION, AND A HAUGHTY SPIRIT BEFORE A FALL. [Proverbs 16:18 KJV]

6But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, GOD RESISTETH THE PROUD, BUT GIVETH GRACE UNTO THE HUMBLE. [James 4:6 KJV]

9And then wisdom shall be given to the Elect, and they shall all live and never again sin, either through forgetfulness or through pride: BUT THOSE WHO ARE GIVEN WISDOM SHALL BE HUMBLE. [Ethiopic Book of Enoch 5:9]

IF YOU EXALT YOURSELF, GOD WILL HUMILIATE YOU, BUT WHEN YOU HUMBLE YOURSELF DOWN, GOD WILL EXALT YOU, FOR THE WAY UP IS DOWN.

God knows that there are some people who, by their nature, will not accept sound teaching from Christ, especially in this regard.

And these are the people that are always full of themselves; full of pride and haughtiness and envy, and they knoweth it not.

Such a fellow is likened to a lizard that prides itself thinking that people are interested in it for meat. Have you ever seen where trap was set for a lizard?

Are the traps you set not for grass cutters and the likes? Why is it that you do not set traps that will catch lizard? Has there been any day your trap ever caught a lizard and you went about roasting it for meat?

But the lizard thinks of itself as a big game for meat. How many times has it been caught and used to make pepper soup? Amen.

“HE IS PUFFED UP WITH PRIDE AND STUPEFIED WITH CONCEIT,...” The person is stupefied with conceit [self-importance] and he is presenting himself bigger than he really is. This is as a result of the stupidity inherent in the person.

“He is puffed up with pride and stupefied with conceit, [ALTHOUGH HE IS] WOEFULLY IGNORANT.”

This is one who does not have an iota of wisdom in him. He lacks wisdom woefully. Yet, he thinks he is something.

God is destroying this spirit. He said that these are the things you must watch out for. Make sure they are not traceable to you in any form or shape. You will know why it is a Daily Guide.

“HE HAS A MORBID FONDNESS FOR CONTROVERSY AND DISPUTE...” Morbid means deadly. Somebody who has given himself over completely to the spirit of error. He takes delight and has holistic desire to live in error and in confusion.

“He has a morbid fondness for controversy and dispute and strife about words, WHICH RESULTS IN (PRODUCE) ENVY AND JEALOUSY,...” It produces what? Envy and jealousy. “

...WHICH RESULTS IN (PRODUCE) ENVY AND JEALOUSY, QUARRELS AND DISSENSION, ABUSE AND INSULT AND SLANDER, AND BASE SUSPICIONS,...”

HAVE YOU HEARD IT? THINGS YOU WATCH OUT FOR BECAUSE WE HAVE COME TO THE END OF EVERYTHING. AND THIS IS WHERE THE DEVIL IS SUBJECTING ALMOST ALL MANKIND.

“And protracted wrangling and wearing discussion and perpetual fruition among men who are corrupted in mind and bereft of the truth,...”

Men who are corrupt in mind and also bereft of the truth. These are people whose hearts are devoid of the truth.

“...who imagine that godliness or righteousness is a form of profit..”  They think that godliness and righteousness is a source of making money. The reason why they come to the church. The reason why they come to THE SON OF MAN. The consideration for such people is the profit and the financial gains thereof.

Do we have such people? They are everywhere. And these are the people that are already disappointed, for when they come and their expectations are not met, troubles will set in and their true nature will now come out.

Gradually gradually, their nakedness shall be made manifest that they do not belong to us. Their gods are their belly. Their appetite and wrong desires brought them into the Faith.

It is just like I told you yesterday about all the people that are clamouring, “O bring your church to Orlu. Bring your church to our community.” What have they seen?

They are clamouring so that we will now assume responsibility of giving befitting burial to them. That is the only good thing they love among us.

That love in burying the dead, carrying the corpse or the casket and the repainting of the house or building a new one, entertaining the world freely and letting them eat and drink. Is that the essence of the Faith?

They do not know why we did it to brother James. They do not know what prompted it because that is all they have seen, “O boy, this church is worth attending! Their Leader is a wonderful personality! This Man is worthy of my friendship” Can you see it?

So, begin now to examine yourself. Promise, I do not like your comportment. You are not with me. I think I will walk you out, even before your time.

The devil asked Christ a question, “Have you come to destroy us before our time, knowing that he has only but a limited time.”

28And when He arrived at the other side in the country of the Gadarenes, two men under the control of demons went to meet Him, coming out of the tombs, so fierce and savage that no one was able to pass that way.

29And behold, they shrieked and screamed, What have You to do with us, Jesus, Son of God? Have You come to torment us before the appointed time? [Matthew 8:28 – 29 AMP]

If you know you have a limited time, you can call it quits even now. End such misbehaviour. Otherwise I will act, straightaway. A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

THERE IS NO MOVEMENT OF ANY MAN’S BODY IN MY PRESENCE UNDER THE ANOINTING WHICH I CANNOT CAPTURE, AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE RIGHT INTERPRETATION IMMEDIATELY.

I know you are being discomforted because of the Word you are hearing. A sure sign that you are on your way to destruction. You become self-destructive.

THIS IS BECAUSE, ANY DAY YOU NEGLECT THE WORD OF GOD, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, YOU NEGLECT THE TRUTH FROM GOD, YOU MUST BECOME SELF-DESTRUCTIVE, FOR NOBODY KNOWS WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE YOU TO BE A REASONABLE HUMAN BEING MORE THAN YOUR CREATOR. HE KNOWS WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU AT ALL TIMES. IS IT NOT TRUE?

BUT WHEN YOU ARE CLAIMING TO KNOW MORE THAN HIM, AND HE WITHDRAWS FROM YOU, DISASTER WILL STRIKE. I SAY, DISASTER WILL STRIKE.

 1 Timothy 6 From verse 3. Amplified version. “But if any teaches otherwise and does not assent to the sound and wholesome messages of our Lord Jesus Christ [the Messiah] and the teaching which is in agreement with godliness, (piety towards God),He is puffed up with pride and stupefied with conceit, [although he is] woefully ignorant”

Can you imagine? Only few Scriptures I read at Orlu, sensible men and women captured the Scriptures and got the interpretation thereof.

The chief with red cap had to come to us at a time, to testify about the teaching. I mean, after reading of Scriptures.

What did I preach at Orlu that moved the crowd? I was only trying to say, thank you to everybody for welcoming us. I then opened only but two Scriptures, and everywhere was set agog. People started bowing down before the Lord.

ANY DAY THE WORD OF GOD BEGINS TO SOUND COMMON IN YOUR EAR, YOU HAVE DESTROYED YOURSELF.

AND WHEN GOD WANTS TO DESTROY YOU, HE WILL HARDEN YOUR HEART AGAINST HIMSELF AND AGAINST HIS WORD, CREATE NO ROOM FOR HIS WORD TO PERCH SO THAT HE WILL BE JUSTIFIED WHEN HE DESTROYS YOU.

“... He has a morbid fondness for controversy and disputes and strife about words, which results in (produce) envy and jealousy, quarrels and dissension, abuse and insults...”

Abuse and what? Insult of diverse manners. You know, a fool does not know what it takes to insult somebody, or to abuse somebody. A fool does not know even the meaning of insult and abuse.

And I challenge all of you tonight. After this Message, you go to the dictionary, find out the real meanings of the two words; [1] INSULT and [2] ABUSE. Not assault, but insult and abuse.

Get the real meaning from the dictionary and then relate it to your personal life, your relationship with people, your action and your attitude towards human beings, not only in the Faith, but even outside the Faith, for which cause your reputation is there in disrepute and there is nobody who can write good concerning you.

IF THE ALMIGHTY GOD CANNOT SPEAK GOOD CONCERNING YOU, WHAT IS THE HOPE OF YOUR LIFE?

Tell me. What is the Hope of a hypocrite? Though he gains the whole world, he does not gain any good reports from God.

Can God bear false witness against an individual? Is God struggling with any individual? What is He struggling with that thing for? Is it for money or materials? Tell me. Is God envious of anybody?

God is the Giver of all things. He that gave you the life you are enjoying, can he envy you? What do you think you will get if not from God?

16Do not be misled, my beloved brethren. 17EVERY GOOD GIFT AND EVERY PERFECT (FREE, LARGE, FULL) GIFT IS FROM ABOVE; IT COMES DOWN FROM THE FATHER OF ALL [THAT GIVES] LIGHT, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].

18And it was of His own [free] will that He gave us birth [as sons] by [His] Word of Truth, so that we should be a kind of first fruits of His creatures [a sample of what He created to be consecrated to Himself]. [James 1:16 – 18 AMP]

If God stops your breath tonight will you get anything? Will you go to court? There are many ways God can handle a rebel, but let there be no rebel in this house.

YOU CAN BE A REBEL WITHOUT KNOWING IT, BUT DO NOT ALLOW GOD TO LABEL YOU A REBEL. BECAUSE GOD CAN LABEL YOU A REBEL IF HE WILL DESTROY YOU.

From the inception of this Faith, up to this very moment, I have never for one day compromised the strictness with anybody because of your relationship with Me. The highest thing that you can give Me is money and food, or provide shelter for Me, or buy a car for Me. I have never for one day, because of all those material considerations lowered down the standard by pampering. Rather, at that time you are rendering the services, that is the time you must be extremely careful; for I must prove the spirit. And that is why this Faith has remained alive till this day.

THINGS YOU MUST WATCH OUT FOR [1]

1 Timothy chapter 6 from verse 4“... He has a morbid fondness for controversy and dispute and strife about words which results in (produce) envy and jealousy, quarrels and dissension, abuse and insults and slander and base suspicions,

And protracted wrangling and wearing discussions and perpetual frictions among men who are corrupted in mind and bereft of the truth,

Who imagine that godliness or righteousness is a source of profit [a money making business, a means of livelihood].”

That is exactly where all of them have perished. The so-called Ministers. Why where they labelled ministers?

Not even one is selfless like Brother James Nnadi. All of them came in because they see it as a place where Brethren will collectively alleviate their hardships and their impoverished conditions. And they think I do not know. I know more than that.

There are some of them who have died naturally because whenever I distribute welfare materials and it does not get to them, I have become their greatest enemy.

Some will even have the effrontery to call Me, only to remind Me that they heard I distributed bags of rice, and that they did not get their own. Can you imagine?

That is the reason why Jesus saw all of them in his own day when they were milling around him.

He said to them clearly in their faces, “I know you are milling around me, not because you are believing my words. It is because you are seeking material help from me.”

26Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, you are looking for me, not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. [John 6:26 NIV]

But if you are wise and understanding you first seek the kingdom of God and its righteousness. Every other thing shall be added unto you, for God knows what you have need of.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. [Matthew 6:33 KJV]

But these people are coming under the cloak of the belief, “We are brethren in the same Faith.”

They know we are feeble-hearted. They know we are generous. “If I can go there, I know I will get this thing which I have been clamoring for.”

What is that thing? Is it eternal life? No! It can be education. It can be craft. It can be one business or the other, but at the end of it all, it is bettering your lot materially?

Some will even vocally tell Me, “Daddy, give us money.” I know many of them that call Me over the phone, and those who even write Me texts.

They will even tell Me the amount they need to do one thing or the other. And that is the reason why they are flooding around this Faith and milling around THE SON OF MAN.

It is not because He has the Word of eternal Life. They have nothing to do with eternal life.

Hence, they have their own adage, “Give us whatever we can get now. At the end of it all, wherever we find ourselves we take it like that. Give us money. Do what we want you to do for us. Anywhere we see ourselves in the end, we will take. Let us enjoy life here, for we may not be in the next life [in the next world]. Heaven is here. Hell is here. Anybody who has no money is in hell.” You see their language?

So, Jesus went to hell because he had no money? Lazarus had no money. Did he go to hell?

IF MONEY IS WHAT IS DIRECTING YOUR MOVEMENT, MONEY WILL DIRECT YOU INTO HELL. IF YOU ARE FOLLOWING MONEY, AND MONEY IS DECIDING WHETHER YOU WILL WORSHIP GOD OR NOT, YOU ARE ALREADY IN HELL AND YOU KNOW IT NOT. AND THE PERSON WILL BE DISAPPOINTED IN THE END.

GOD WILL GIVE YOU EVERYTHING, BUT HE WILL NEVER GIVE YOU MONEY. GOD WILL GIVE YOU SOUND HEALTH, GIVE YOU A TRAINING AND THEN YOU WILL GO AND WORK WITH YOUR HANDS AND EARN MONEY.

But the devil gives money, but the person that receives money from the devil does not enjoy it, for he will give you miserable conditions that will make it impossible for you to enjoy that money.

Some will even follow the devil’s trick, “Let me get it quick. Even if I die, the remaining people in my compound will enjoy it.”

But God knows that for them to enjoy the money, they must belong to where the devil belongs, for if you do not initiate yourself into that thing which the devil said you must do, you will never be a beneficiary.

The devil will destroy you and destroy the possible beneficiaries, for the devil can never give you any free gift. Amen.

“... From such withdraw.” From such! Who are those people? Those that come into the Faith feeling that it is a means of making money. Those who are measuring their material conditions and their financial conditions.

So when they stay and those things are not forthcoming, they become cold. But as long as those things are coming, they are fervent, and they are vibrant.

Everyday, they are in the pulpit preaching to impress THE SON OF MAN and the audience, but not because they believe. This is so that they will be remembered.

But Bro James was not like that. He was a selfless Minister who rendered selfless sacrifices like THE SON OF MAN. He followed the example laid down by THE SON OF MAN from the inception of this Faith till today.

Watch others. They are pecuniary- induced preachers. I said, pecuniary-induced preachers, money-minded preachers, materially-minded or gift-minded preachers.

Something you must watch out for. Watch out for these people. I call them greedy dogs. Dangerous dogs. Watch out for them.

Do not give in. I say, do not ever give in. Do not give them a second, do not listen to them or to their gimmicks, so that the truth of this holistic gospel of Christ will continue, lest your Faith be spoiled.

I call them spoilers of the Faith, and they have their target. Their targets are those that are measuring very well. Their targets are those that have received God’s commendation.

They will go all out to make sure they mar their reports, dent their reputations and put a halt to their ministry by injecting controversial arguments. Amen.

FIND OUT WHY YOU ARE IN THE FAITH. FIND OUT WHY YOU BELIEVE THAT GOD IS THE ONE PILOTING THIS FAITH. FIND OUT WHY YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS FAITH IS TAKING YOU TO PARADISE. FIND OUT WHETHER YOU ARE JUST PRETENDING OR YOU ARE A PART OF IT.

“From such withdraw.” From such people who think that serving God is a means of making money; who are serving their own bellies and not Christ; who pretend to be friends to Brethren so that they will give them money; who offer wrong advice to Brethren, give them wrong counsel, comfort them in falsehood provided at the end, they will get money from them.

All these Brethren that are being led astray, who are leading them astray? They are people within that category, who use them as launching pads, by helping them to stray away from the Faith, provided they will go there and get a bag of rice, get a bag of beans and get money as they wish.

These are the people that visit women from house to house, corrupting them with wrong wrong teachings, only to exploit them. Are they among us? Yes! Watch out for such people, especially now we are closing the history.

Any moment from now, it will be over. From the farewell address Bro James directed to Me before he died[before he slept], I know Bro James saw the end.

The end is imminent. It is even at our doorstep as I am talking now. This is the Guide. Daily Guide.

“[And it is, indeed, a source of immense profit, for] godliness accompanied with contentment (that contentment which is a source of inward sufficiency) is great and abundant gain.

For we brought nothing into the world, and obviously we cannot take anything out of the world;”

Now Bro James has left. Did he take anything out? Even the little he had in his account as money, did he go with it? Did he take any clothe? Even the new one I ordered them to make for him, will he come up with it? Never!

We came here empty-handed, and we are leaving this place with only one thing. What is that one thing? That is Christ or devil. Christ of devil!

THE ONLY THING YOU CAN GO AWAY WITH IS THE SPIRIT THAT IS OPERATING IN YOU BEFORE YOU GIVE UP THE GHOST, OR THE SPIRIT THAT IS OPERATING IN YOU ON THE DAY OF THE TRANSLATION OF THE SAINTS. THAT IS THE ONLY THING YOU ARE TAKING.

Let your garments fill this earth. You are not taking even one, for you will be clad with the new garment. The garment of righteousness, immaculate white. A uniform for all saints, unspotted from the world.

Then what is the essence of becoming covetous and greedy? What is the essence of indulging in falsehood? You know you are not taking it to anywhere. Rather, it is leading you into destruction.

What is the need for the spirit of envy and jealousy, hypocrisy and suppression of feelings? Why following Christ for something that will perish with the user, instead of following Him for something that will ensure unto eternal life, unto eternity? Why? Because of temporary pleasure, forfeit eternal life. Why?

27Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which THE SON OF MAN will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval." [John 6:27 NIV]

Is there any pleasure in this life that is eternal? Is your vehicle eternal? Is your citadel mansion eternal? Tell me what you possess here that has any eternity attached to it.

Rather, these things can help you to attain eternal life in hell fire. Eternal damnation and eternal punishment, where the worm and the maggot according to the Bible, that will eat your flesh, will never die for one day. Is it not scriptural? That the worm and the maggot will not die, eating up the flesh. Amen.

Now is the hour to discuss eternal life; eternal habitation with God. And this is the last lap. No idolater worships God, for you cannot worship two masters. Can you worship God and mammon? Every covetous man worships mammon whether he or she believes. While in the bid to make money, he values money more than human life.

BEWARE OF COVETOUSNESS WHICH IS IDOLATRYVOLUME 1; Preached on Sunday 28th October 2018; Pg. 68 vs. 63 – 64.

THINGS YOU MUST WATCH OUT FOR [2]

1Timothy 6 from verse 7, Amplified version. “For we brought nothing into the world, and obviously we cannot take anything out of the world.

But if we have food and clothing, with these we shall be content (satisfied). But those who crave to be rich, fall into temptation…”

Those that crave to be rich or to be wealthy fall into diverse temptations.

“But those who crave to be rich, fall into temptation and a snare and into many [1] foolish ([2]useless, [3]godless)..” They are ensnared [enticed], and fall into many what? “...[1]foolish ([2]useless, [3]godless) and [4]hurtful desires...”

Foolish, useless, godless and hurtful desires.

“…that plunge men into ruin and destruction and miserable perishing.

For the love of money is the root of all evils; it is through this craving that some have been led astray...”

It is through this craving for materialism that some have been led astray, by making shipwreck of their ministries. They have changed their confessions of their Faith. They have become messengers of the devil. Things you must watch out for.

“…AND HAVE WONDERED FROM THE FAITH AND PIERCED THEMSELVES THROUGH WITH MANY ACUTE [MENTAL] PANGS.”

You saw what happened to the young man, IK school. The crave for materialism. Look at where it landed him. If not amazing Grace; if not divine intervention, it would have been bye bye for him, but the lesson he learnt will linger throughout eternity.

How young men ought to learn their lessons. How adults ought to learn their lessons.

Even if you succeeded like others who are saying they have succeeded, where will it land them? How long will they enjoy the unrighteous loot?

You might be saying that somebody is manipulating you. Nobody is manipulating you, but the desire to become rich. Amen.

Now I go to another Scripture. I hope you have finished that one? Finish it immediately. Do not fold your hands, it is up to verse 20.

“But AS FOR YOU, O MAN OF GOD,...” As for you, O child of God. “...FLEE FROM ALL THESE THINGS;...”

DO WHAT? FLEE!!! DEVELOP WINGS. DO NOT GIVE IT ANY RECOGNITION. DO NOT ACCORD IT ANY RECOGNITION. LET IT NOT HAVE ANY PLACE IN YOU. LET THE LIFE AND THE ATTITUDE OF THE SON OF MAN TOWARDS ALL THESE THINGS BE YOUR ATTITUDE.

“But as for you, O man of God, flee from all these things;...”Flee from all these things. “...AIM AT AND PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS...”

I doubt whether I will handle this Message tonight. If the background is yet to be laid, the preaching may not be today. It may linger till Sunday, but let me finish with the background.

“...AIM AT AND PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS (RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD…”RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD SHOULD BE YOUR PREOCCUPATION.

“...and true goodness), GODLINESS (WHICH IS THE LOVING FEAR OF GOD AND BEING CHRIST-LIKE),...You see what godliness is all about. Godliness means the loving fear of God, and you will also be Christ-like.

“...faith, love, steadfastness (patience), and gentleness of heart.

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF THE FAITH; LAY HOLD OF THE ETERNAL LIFE TO WHICH YOU WERE SUMMONED...”

IF GOD SUMMONED YOU TO COME, HE SUMMONED YOU THAT HE MAY HELP YOU TO GET ETERNAL LIFE, NOT TO MAKE YOU A PHD HOLDER, AND NOT TO ESTABLISH A BIG BUSINESS FOR YOU.

THESE THINGS ARE FINE, BUT THERE IS NO ETERNAL LIFE IN THEM. BUT HE[GOD] SUMMONED YOU THAT YOU MAY NOT PERISH, THAT HE WILL GIVE YOU ETERNAL LIFE IN THE END, IF YOU CAN PERSEVERE WITH HIM TILL THE END.

AFTER EVERYTHING, YOU WILL BE SURE OF ETERNAL LIFE. EVEN IF HE DOES NOT ENRICH YOU OR GIVE YOU ANY OTHER THING, YOU CAN BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.

A WONDERFUL PRIVILEGE THAT GOD SUMMONED YOU JUST FOR ETERNAL LIFE. IS THERE ANY LOVE GREATER THAN THIS?

“Lay hold of eternal life to which you were summoned and [for which] you confessed the good confession [of faith] before many witnesses.

IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD, Who preserves alive all living things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontus Pilate made the good confession, I [SOLEMNLY] CHARGE YOU..” To do what? “…TO KEEP ALL HIS PRECEPTS...”

To keep all the precepts of Christ laid down; laid down; laid down instructions in this Daily Guide.

“TO KEEP ALL HIS PRECEPTS UNSULLIED AND FLAWLESS”. Unsoiled! Undefiled and also flawless. F-L-A-W-L-E-S-S.

... irreproachable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ (the anointed one), Which [appearing] will be shown forth in His own proper time by the blessed, only Sovereign (Ruler), the King of kings and the LORD of Lords, 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 honour and everlasting power and dominion. Amen (so be it).

AS FOR THE RICH IN THIS WORLD, CHARGE THEM NOT TO BE PROUD AND ARROGANT AND CONTEMPTUOUS OF OTHERS, NOT TO SET THEIR HOPES ON UNCERTAIN RICHES, BUT ON GOD. WHO RICHLY AND CEASELESSLY PROVIDES FOR US WITH EVERYTHING FOR [OUR] ENJOYMENT.” Amen.

“[charge them] to do good, to be rich in good works, to be liberal and generous of heart, ready to share [with others].

In this way laying up for themselves [the riches that endure forever as] a good foundation for the future, so that they may grasp that which is life indeed.

O Timothy, GUARD AND KEEP THE DEPOSIT ENTRUSTED [TO YOU]! This Message! This Instruction! This Guide.

“TURN AWAY FROM THE IRREVERENT BABBLE AND GODLESS CHATTER WITH THE VAIN AND EMPTY AND WORLDLY PHRASES, AND THE SUBTLETIES AND THE CONTRADICTIONS IN WHAT IS FALSELY CALLED KNOWLEDGE AND SPIRITUAL ILLUMINATION.”

What is falsely called knowledge. Knowledge of subtleties. Knowledge that is full of various types of craftiness. Craftiness!

I want you to see that God is the ancient God. He is the Main Man for He knows what is needed to take people to Paradise. He knows what will hinder people.

And that is why, after handing down this rule, saint Paul said, “I am now ready to die, for I have fought a good fight. I have kept the faith. Now is left for me the crown of life, which is not only for me but for all of you who will fight this fight of faith and endure with me till the end.”

“[For] by making such profession, some have erred (missed the mark) as regards the faith. Grace (divine favour and blessing) be with you all! Amen (so be it).” Amen.

If I tell you to read and you do not read lively, I will beat hell out of you. To show you how strict I am, the way it started in those days, I was slapping interpreters and readers of the Bible in the pulpit. Verify from my wife.

WHEN YOU SEE ME IN AS STRICT BUSINESS IN HANDLING THIS WORD, I HATE DOZING. I HATE ABSENTMINDEDNESS. I HATE SLUGGISH READING. AMEN.

But to you that are here with Me, I am the Perfect interpreter of the Word. The Word proceeded from Me. I know why the Word went forth. I know what it intended to achieve in the life of every man. Thus, giving it your own interpretation becomes the beginning of your own self-destruction. That is why God is the Perfect Interpreter of His own Word.

HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD?

Follow me tonight. Even if I lay the foundation, it will help me to hand down the teaching. But where the foundation is not solidly laid, to understand this Message will be difficult for all of you. And that is why I am lowering it very well.

Follow me again as we read the Scriptures. Jeremiah 9:23 – 26. I told you I will read three Scriptures, three passages of the Scriptures. Three passages only.

I want to use Amplified. I said one translation. Jeremiah 9 from verse 23 through the end.

“THUS SAYS THE LORD let not the wise and skillful person, glory and boast in his wisdom and skill; let not the mighty and powerful person glory and boast in his strength and power;

LET NOT THE PERSON WHO IS RICH [IN PHYSICAL GRATIFICATION AND EARTHLY WEALTH]...” For which cause many are following THE SON OF MAN that they might be enriched in physical wealth and useless gratifications. And then that is their glory.

“...let not the person who is rich [in physical gratification and earthly wealth] glory and boast in his [temporal satisfactions and earthly] riches;” Note it! Temporary! 

The wealth of this world is vanity. Naira and kobo will perish, but the Word of God will endure till eternity.

If you take away my wealth through greed, you can never take away the Word of God from Me through greed. The Word of God is alive and active. It standeth sure. And it gives us life. Amen.

“Let not the person who is rich [in physical gratification and earthly wealth] glory and boast in his [temporal satisfactions and earthly riches]”.

Temporal satisfactions and earthly riches. Things that can only last just for a short while. A short while!

How many years was Bro James before He died? 61 years. Some died at the age of 30 years. Some died at the age of 25 years.

A young man was saying [and that was their MC] that Brother James did not clock 70 years, and that the Bible said it must be 70. For that reason, he died prematurely.

I said, “Shut up your mouth!” Jesus Christ died at 33. He shouted, “My people come and see O! The Man of God has corrected me. I did not realize that Jesus died at 33. Our brother did not die premature death, for he was senior to Jesus Christ by age before he died. ”And which is pure truth.

And people clapped their hands. It is not how long you stayed here on earth that counts, but how did you live your life. What is your record? What is your testimony?

Do you have the testimony that you pleased God or that you displeased God who created you [brought you into existence] and you became tired and weak? Even weaker than him.

Do you know that that is the meaning of disobedience to God’s Word? A DISOBEDIENT FELLOW IS DISOBEDIENT BECAUSE HE THINKS HE IS HIGHER THAN GOD, BIGGER THAN GOD AND MUCH MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE THAN GOD. So God is even foolish to have been talking to him.

“But let him who glories, glory in this: that he understands and knows Me [personally and practically...”

Let the fellow glory that he understands and knows me personally, not collectively.

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF WHO GOD IS, FOR IT IS ON THE BASIS OF WHO GOD IS TO YOU, THAT YOUR OBEDIENCE TO HIS WORD STARTS, AND YOUR DISOBEDIENCE ALSO STARTS.

IT DEPENDS ON WHAT HE IS TO YOU AND YOUR OWN CONCLUSION ABOUT HIM. IF YOU SEE HIM AS YOUR GOD AND YOUR SAVIOUR, YOUR CREATOR, YOUR MAKER AND YOUR ALL AND ALL, YOUR ATTITUDE WILL REFLECT IT. IS IT NOT TRUE?

Will you joke with His Word? Will you rub shoulders with Him? Will you abuse or spite Him? Will you insult him?

IN MANY WAYS, WE ABUSE AND INSULT GOD BECAUSE WE ARE IGNORANT OF WHAT WE ARE DOING AND HOW GOD IS SEEING OUR BEHAVIOUR.

“But 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 JUDGEMENT AND RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE EARTH,...”

Judgment and righteousness. He is not only God of mercy. He is also God of judgment.

“...FOR IN THESE THINGS I DELIGHT, SAYS THE LORD. Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will punish all who though circumcised [outwardly, in the flesh] are still uncircumcised,..”

I will punish those who though circumcised outwardly in the flesh, but refuse to carry out the circumcision of the spirit[of the heart], which is the real circumcision.

THAT IS WHY GOD SAID, “CIRCUMCISE YOUR HEART AND NOT YOUR FLESH. IF YOUR ARE SORROWING, DO NOT TEAR YOUR CLOTHE. TEAR YOUR HEART.”

Are you sleeping? Your disposition is not pleasing. You are begging sleep to catch you. Before you know it, because you are enjoying the fan, you will be dozing. Stand up there and hold your Bible. That is the way you can avoid it.

Circumcise your heart. We are the circumcision according to the book of Philippians, who do not boast about the circumcision of the flesh, but the circumcision of the heart.

For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. [Philippians 3:3 KJV]

The Bible said that we should circumcise our hearts from all evil thoughts, evil imaginations.

This is because every sin a man commits emanates from the heart, even the one you speak with your mouth, for out of the abundance of your heart, the mouth speaketh. True or false?

WHEN THE HEART IS CIRCUMCISED, YOU ARE PLACED IN RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD. But when you circumcise your flesh, you torture the flesh, and the heart remaineth untouched.

And from the heart comes the emanations of all kinds of evil, unrestrained. Emanations of envy, jealousy, hate, vile, acrimony, bitterness, wrought, rebellion. All of them are emanations of the heart that is not yet circumcised with the Word of God.

Is your heart circumcised or are you circumcising the flesh when the heart is not yet touched one bit. Amen.

Pause and think. A day is coming when God is going to punish all the people that give unnecessary attention to the circumcision of the flesh, to the neglect of the circumcision of the heart. Out of the heart, they can bear good fruit.

“Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will punish all who though circumcised [outwardly, in the flesh] are still uncircumcised [in corresponding inward purity]—“

“Egypt, Judah, Edom, the children of Ammon, Moab [all of whom are related except Egypt], and all who live in the dessert, and who clip off the corners of their hair and beards; FOR ALL THESE NATION’S ARE UNCIRCUMCISED [IN HEART],...”

All these nations are uncircumcised in heart, including Judah[Israel].

That is why if you want to see it, you go to Romans chapter 9. The Jews claim they are circumcised according to the law of Moses, when their hearts are still very dirty.

And God said, “We are the spiritual Jews; We that obey the Word of God.

“..and all the house of Israel is uncircumcised in heart”. But they have the circumcision of the flesh.

God said, “A day is coming, and the day has come already, for the Judge is standing upon the earth at last, judging all of them that have refused to obey the Word of God which has the power to circumcise the heart, so that the body will be pure. Amen.

The Words we are receiving are the Words of circumcision of the heart. When you believe this Word, it circumcises your heart of everything evil. You begin to think aright, walk aright, AND BEHAVE aright.

BUT WHEN YOU REFUSE THIS WORD THAT IS COMING TO YOU, THERE IS NO WAY YOUR HEART CAN BE CIRCUMCISED.

It is just like somebody who is tearing his clothe, pouring ashes on his flesh, when the heart is thinking of doing evil. Of what use is that type of sorrowing?

Do not tear your garment according to the Word of God. No! Tear your heart. Let your heart bleed. Let your face blush. Have shamefacedness!

Do not have a straight face. Do not pride about that you are a giant in evil and in unbelief. Do not flex your muscle against God, for you cannot stand the wrath of God.

Is there any human being who can stand the wrought of God? When Nebuchadnezzar came up, did he succeed? When Pharaoh came up, did he succeed? What happened to Herod? What happened to Pilate?

I mean, these were Kings that ruled the entire world. Yet, God humiliated all of them for flexing their muscles against the truth, thinking they are something, when they are nothing. Can a man, born of a woman, wrestle with God? How do you know God?

I am the Justifier. I AM THE SON OF MAN. If I set you free, you are free indeed. If I declare you guilty, you are guilty. If I want you to stand, you will stand. If I want you to fail you will fail. This is pure truth! For God knows those that will rise and those that will fall. If you doubt Me, bragging that you cannot do it, what happened to others will happen to you there. You will go there and call Me devil and equally call this Faith false

I MUST BE SURE AND CERTAIN

I want to show you another Scripture of how God wants us to know Him. Philippians chapter 3. I want us to consider from verse 10 to the end using Amplified version.

If you can corporate with Me, I can hand out this teaching tonight, because it is just few minutes after 8pm. Can you endure with Me even till 10:30 pm, or even beyond that? Can you endure with Me? Are you tired? You are weak. All of you are shaking your heads.

You think I have eaten since morning, but right from morning, I have been in one place. I have been in one place meditating and praying, searching the scriptures and cross-checking the Messages to make sure you are fed with the right food.

Philippians 3:10 – 21. Amplified. “[For my determined purpose...” What? “[For my determined purpose...”

What is your own determined purpose for following Christ? You must have a purpose for whatever you are doing in this life. A PURPOSELESS LIFE IS NOT WORTH LIVING. IT IS A LIFE WITHOUT A TARGET.

What is your purpose for following Christ? What is your purpose for knowing who He is? What is your purpose for being personally and practically acquainted with Christ?

What do you intend to achieve in believing Him, in obeying Him, in following Him amidst troubles, hardship, ridicule and every kind of thing? You endure all like the Lord Jesus Christ. What is your purpose?

Saint Paul describing his experience. “For my purpose is my aim; my target.

“[For MY DETERMINED PURPOSE IS] THAT I MAY KNOW HIM[THAT I MAY PROGRESSIVELY BECOME MORE DEEPLY AND INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH HIM,...” O glory! Progressively!

“...perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of his person more strongly and more clearly],...”

I repeat. “[For my determined purpose is] that I may know him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him,...”

Progressively become more deeply and intimately friendly. You know what it takes for one to be in intimate relationship with somebody. You can stand for him. You can talk about him. You can testify about him. You are sure and certain of who you have believed in.

Can there be any wind of doctrine or teaching that can buffet you about again? Look at his purpose.

“... perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of his person, MORE STRONGLY AND MORE CLEARLY], and that I may in the same way, come to know the power outflowing from his resurrection..”

To know the power outflowing from His resurrection as the resurrected body. That I may be like him.

“...perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of his person, more strongly and more clearly],...”

You see, He is a Wonder. He is a paradox. He is a Wonder. It requires somebody who is strongly committed to knowing the wonders about this man. A man that can hardly be understood. A paradox. It takes one who is determined, to know Him.

“and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers],...”

Where you now have the hope of resurrecting in the manner he resurrected if you will die. He exerts and He confers. C-O-N-F-E-R-S. He confers the similar power over all the believers.

That is the Hope, for if He did not resurrect, our belief is nonsense. He resurrected and conferred that power upon all who will believe in him.

And saint Paul did not want to beat about the bush. He did not want to run in vain. He wants to be deeply acquainted, searching out the wonders associated with that resurrection, wherein He now exerts power over the living and the dead to come back to life again as He came back from the dead.

“and that I may in that same way, come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers]”

I THINK IT IS UPON THIS BACK DROP THAT WE ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE SON OF MAN.

OUR INABILITY TO SETTLE DOWN TO KNOW WHETHER WE CAN GRASP A LITTLE OF THIS WONDER MAN, FOR HE REMAINS A WONDER MAN UNTIL YOU GRASP IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF WHO HE IS AND WHY HE BEHAVES THE WAY HE BEHAVES AND ACTS THE WAY HE ACTS; WHY HE SPEAKS THE WAY HE SPEAKS AND DOES THINGS THE WAY HE DOES THINGS.

Otherwise, you will still be clashing with Him. You may conclude that He is an implacable fellow, when you are the one. You may be a burden to yourself, for your inability to take Him at His Word, without knowing exactly what He wants you to do. You become a burden to yourself.

“...AND THAT I MAY SO SHARE THE SUFFERINGS as to be continually transformed...” As they share in his sufferings. Did He say why they suffered, I will be enjoying? The Master is suffering, you are enjoying. Did he say so?

If the master is enjoying, you are enjoying, if he is suffering, you are suffering. So you are not only called to come and enjoy with Him, you are also called to come and suffer with Him. This is because, if you suffer with Him, you will reign with Him.

An Igbo adage says that it is he who works that enjoys the fruits thereof. But many came to eat without working. Many came to be settled when they laboured not.

“Settle me!” Is that person not a criminal? It takes a Criminal to run to somebody and say, “Settle me!” Did you give them anything to keep for you?

You never worked, and you are asking for settlement. “Settle me before I will work.” Is that person a human being? He is a beast.

“...and that I may so share his sufferings so as to be continually transformed [in spirit...” Amen.

When you share in the sufferings, when I share in the sufferings of Christ, I will be continually transformed and continually changed in the spirit though my outward appearance will remain the same. Why?

If any be in Christ, he becomes a brand new individual within. Is it not scripture?

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. [2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV]

The outward appearance is the same person, but inwardly, he is no longer the old person. Old ways of doing things have vanished away. Old ways of thinking and reasoning, vanished away. A newness of life automatically begins. A strange person within.

“...and that I may so share his sufferings so as to be continually transformed [in spirit into his likeness even] to his death [IN THE HOPE], THAT if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body]. Not that I have now attained [this ideal]”

While in this body, I will attain it, so that when I die, that power which resurrected Christ from the dead, which is already in me, which I have acquired before I died like Brother James, will bring me back to life.

What if I do not acquire it? Do I have any hope? I am eternally damned.

“Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, BUT I PRESS ON TO LAY HOLD OF (GRASP) AND MAKE MY OWN,...” Did he say I draw back? I press on to lay hold of.

“...(grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me his own.

I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet];” That is, that salvation belongs to you. Eternal life belongs to you. Lay hold on eternal life.

Until I have grasped the thing, lay hold on it and make it my own. I can now say the eternal life God has promised, now belongs to Me. I do not know about you.

I must be sure and certain that I am not beating about the bush; that I am not deceiving myself; that I am not playing church; that I am not coming here to shout or to show you that I can preach or read Bible. I MUST BE SURE AND CERTAIN.

“I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]: but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: FORGETTING WHAT LIES BEHIND AND STRAINING FORWARD..”

Forgetting what lies behind because it is past. It is past tense. You cannot ruminate on the past and move forward. You cannot renew yesterday without standing still.

That is why I have always told you young men, “DO NOT ALLOW THE DISAPPOINTMENT OF YESTERDAY TO HINDER YOU THE SUCCESS OF TODAY. DO NOT ALLOW THE DISAPPOINTMENT OF YESTERDAY TO BECLOUD YOUR ADVANCEMENT OF THE FUTURE.”

Leave it behind, for the Almighty cannot change the past. The past is past. Do not bring it forward anymore, but make sure you do not go back to that error.

Move, forgetting the past, for the former things are gone. As long as you are alive, there is opportunity for improvement. True or false? Can the dead improve? It takes the living to improve. Is it not true?

“...FORGETTING WHAT LIES BEHIND AND STRAINING FORWARD TO WHAT LIES AHEAD, I PRESS ON TOWARDS THE GOAL TO WIN...”

If Brother James had remained on his condition about three years ago, and died in that condition, no Brother in this Faith would have attended the burial. Promise is it not true? Were you not together at Aba?

He received this rousing saintly burial because, along the way, he thought on his ways, and he ran back to God and vowed never to draw back from following God.

He became a teacher of righteousness, a doer of righteousness and espousing people and himself to Christ daily. He took his cross and died with Christ there.

And he has obtained the report that while he lived, he did that which was pleasing in the sight of God.

“...I PRESS ON TOWARDS THE GOAL TO WIN THE [SUPREME AND HEAVENLY] PRIZE to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward. ...”

Note! The supreme and heavenly prize. A prize without comparison. It is worth more than money and anything you can think of in this world.

WHEN YOU MISS IT, YOU WILL MEET WITH SUPREME SHAME. SUPREME SHAME! ONE IS SUPREME GLORY, THE OTHER ONE IS SUPREME SHAME.

……Have you asked Me why I am showing you this thing now? We have come to the end of all things and we are comparing experiences. The more we know this Truth, the more our eyes are opened clearer to be more acquainted with God that has revealed Himself in the midst of His people in the form of a human being.

REMEDY FOR THE LAST BATTLE

So let [those of us] who are spiritually mature and full-grown...” NOT EVERYBODY, but let those of us who are spiritually mature understand who THE SON OF MAN is, His mission in the Bride of Christ and why He is passing sleepless nights guiding, instructing, advising, correcting and doing everything.

So let those [of us] who are spiritually mature and full-grown have this mind and hold these convictions; and if in any respect you have a different attitude of mind, God will make that clear to you also'. Amen!!!

If there be any of us that have another attitude of mind, opposing attitude of mind contrary to this truth, even the practitioner will know that he is on the wrong side without anybody revealing it to you.

IF YOU ARE A SEED OF GOD, AND YOU GO INTO ERROR AND YOU SAY YOU DO NOT KNOW, IT GOES TO PROVE THAT YOU ARE NOT A SEED OF GOD.

NO SEED OF GOD GOES INTO ERROR WITHOUT FINDING FAULT WITH HIMSELF, THEREBY MAKING CORRECTION VERY EASY.

IN SHORT, HE CORRECTS HIMSELF BEFORE PEOPLE WILL BEGIN TO INDICT HIM. BEFORE HE RECEIVES QUESTIONS OR QUERIES, “WHY DID YOU DO IT?”, HE HAS ALREADY FAULTED HIMSELF. THAT IS WHAT A SEED OF GOD IS KNOWN FOR.

But if it is a serpent seed, there is no going back. While he is committing that one, he is devising another one. Instead of thinking of how to come out, he is thinking of how to superimpose the crime and devise another way, which is a new way of circumventing it or covering it up.

Chiemelie, I hope you are paying attention? Good!

A true seed of God queries himself or herself each time he goes into error, for there is a spirit of truth in him or her that halts him, queries him immediately; AND arrests HIM on the spot.

Often times, you may hate yourself that such a thing could be associated with you. You will hate yourself that after your experiences over the years in the knowledge of the truth, that such character could be attributed to you.

Where then lies the basis of your claim to be a human being, talk less of being a follower of Christ? Are you following Christ for your destruction or for your salvation?

“So let those [of us] who are spiritually mature and full-grown have this mind and hold these convictions; and if in any respect you have a different attitude of mind, God will make that clear to you also.

ONLY LET US HOLD TRUE TO WHAT WE HAVE ALREADY ATTAINED AND WALK AND ORDER OUR LIVES BY THAT'. Amen!

We should walk and order our lives in accordance with the truth; the level of truth we have so far attained.

WE HAVE ATTAINED A LEVEL OF TRUTH WHERE CERTAIN BEHAVIORS SHOULD NO LONGER BE NAMED AMONG US. True or false? True or false?

But if by tomorrow we begin to see ourselves faltering, when we ought to be teachers of good things; when we ought to be living by example, we begin to run back to our vomit, what shall we call it?

Can we say that the devil is seducing us or we are behaving ignorantly? Never! We will say we are doing it deliberately, and not that we do not know what we are doing.

“Brethren, together follow my example and observe those who live after the pattern we have set for you.

For there are many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, who walk (live) as enemies of the cross of Christ (the Anointed One).

A sure sign that they are found among the children of God. St Paul was even lamenting, drawing the attention of the Brethren with tears that there could be such deadly people found in their midst who are enemies of truth and who were always taking delight in walking contrary to the pattern set down for us.

Always contradicting the truth by their attitudes and by their behaviors, placing themselves constantly in danger of being called to question as if they are priding themselves about with evil. And as if God can bypass evil or that God can overlook such wicked manifestations of infidelity towards God. Never!

“THEY ARE DOOMED AND THEIR FATE IS ETERNAL MISERY (PERDITION); their god is their stomach (their appetites, their sensuality) AND THEY GLORY IN THEIR SHAME…”

They are rejoicing in that which is shameful. “…siding with earthly things and being of their party. ”Amen!

Taking pleasure, having delight in earthly things, being of the party of people who go about in search of earthly, temporary, material benefits.

Once it gets to material acquisition, they become lively and active, when it comes to things pertaining to God they will die completely. Are they the majority in this Faith? Heaven has narrowed down.

“BUT WE ARE CITIZENS OF THE STATE (COMMONWEALTH, HOMELAND) WHICH IS IN HEAVEN…”

We are citizens. Are you one of the citizens? You must know where you belong to. I am a citizen of heaven. As you see me here, the devil has no part in me. Unrighteousness can never be associated with THE SON OF MAN.

14And the angel came to me and greeted me with his voice, and said to me “This is THE SON OF MAN who is born to righteousness, and righteousness abides over him, and the righteousness of the Head of Days forsakes him not.” [Ethiopic Book of Enoch 71:14]

I AM NOT ONLY A TEACHER OF GOOD WORKS, I AM EQUALLY A DOER OF GOOD WORKS, FOR I KNOW ALL THE REQUIREMENTS FOR ENTRY INTO PARADISE, FOR THAT HAS BEEN MY HOME RIGHT FROM CREATION. THEREUNTO I AM ORDAINED. AMEN!

I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT ANY OTHER PERSON. I AM A CITIZEN OF THAT STATE, THAT COMMONWEALTH. MY HOMELAND IS HEAVEN.

No matter what the devil decides to do, we are going to heaven. No matter how the devil will war against us, God must surely give us victory through Christ our Lord, who had already overcome and conferred the victory unto us.

If He was defeated, we shall be defeated. If He lost the battle, we will lose the battle. When the battle is over, we must surely wear the crown in this new city. New Jerusalem.

“But we are citizens of the state (commonwealth, homeland) which is in heaven and from it also we earnestly and patiently await [the coming of] the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) [as] Saviour,

WHO WILL TRANSFORM AND FASHION ANEW THE BODY OF OUR HUMILIATION to conform to and be like the body of His glory and majesty, by exerting that power…'

That power is in the Gospel. That power is in the Word of God. The transforming power which God exerts on all the believers, which brings that permanent change that ushers us into Eternal Life.

Who will transform and fashion anew the body of our humiliation to conform to and be like the body of His glory and majesty, by exerting that power which enables Him even to subject everything to Himself'. Amen!

Brethren, with these three Scriptures as I promised, I have laid a background. I am not changing the topic. This is the background. Daily guide! Daily Guide!

DAILY GUIDE FOR EVERY ELECT OF GOD WORLDWIDE. THE ONLY REMEDY FOR THIS LAST BATTLE WHICH THE DEVIL IS RAGING RELENTLESSLY AND HE IS SUBJECTING TOO MANY TO HORRIBLE CONDITIONS.

Spiritually, many have fallen asleep already. Only a few are now awake spiritually. Many have been dispirited and demoralized by their bankrupt conditions.

They are spiritually and morally bankrupt because the devil is not giving them a breathing space. It is not that the devil is coming from anywhere.

They are the people fomenting it within themselves by suggesting everything counter to their brain and to their mind; And by evolving new ideas of doing evil by resorting to all forms of craftiness and subtlety contrary to the revealed truth, thinking they are circumventing God’s judgment.

They bring more of the judgment upon themselves. They incur the wrath of God, for they are woefully ignorant that God is of a righteous eye to overlook evil.

No matter how small that evil is, God must bring it to judgment. That is why there is a need for this Daily Guide where God will supply you with the Balm of Gilead which you will use as an ointment.

Wherever there is any snake bite, you apply it there and the Lord will use it to bring you back to the fold or else many are likely to be destroyed at the end.

Looking at the time and how wearied you are, I am tempted to call it a good night. While we wait, if there be Sunday, the Lord willing, we will go into it or we may continue tomorrow depending on how He will lead us.

I even feel like continuing tomorrow during the early hours of the morning, if there shall be tomorrow, so that this anointing that is in us now, the awareness we have captured through this salvation will go to bed with us.

We will wake up with it and then continue without stopping till we get to the end. Do you agree with Me? Is it possible? All things are possible to them that believe.

An Igbo adage says that when a man discovers that which is worth more than his farm, he sells the entire contents of his barn to purchase it.

Awake thou that sleepeth for the night is far spent, for our salvation draweth nearer now than when we first believed.

He that is surrounded by his enemies is always keeping watch over his life. Do not slumber, O children of God.

AND THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN KEEP VIGIL OVER YOUR LIFE, OVER YOUR SOUL IS TO REMAIN ACTIVE IN THE WORD. REMAIN MEDITATING. REMAIN PRAYING. REMAIN STUDYING. DO NOT EVER RELENT.

As we sing in our song; “I will continue to wait, I will never be tired. I will continue to pray, I will never be wearied].

I will never be wearied. I will never be tired. I will continue to wait on Him. If I wait tonight and my mortal body is not transformed, tomorrow I will continue to wait. The next day, I continue to wait. Next year, I keep on waiting.

I WILL NEVER RELENT. I WILL NEVER DRAW BACK UNTIL THIS MORTAL BODY PUTS ON IMMORTALITY WHICH IS THE COMPLETENESS OF OUR SALVATION IN CHRIST. TILL THEN, WE WILL CONTINUE TO SING. WE WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY.

Shall we rise up as we thank God who in spite of our body weakness strengthened us spiritually? We became alive and active as this Message comes to us from the sacred desk.

And we know the Source of this Message. If the foundation is like this, what will be the nature of the body of the Message.

On this note, we invite our Brother Chika to summarize our gathering with a brief, direct prayer of thanksgiving to God Almighty.
