INTRODUCTION

PRAYER

Our Heavenly father, here we come to you this morning in this your Most Holy Family only because your presence is here. You are domiciled here under the roof made with human hands, veiling yourself in a man, not counting it robbery; hiding yourself O God away from your enemies that they might continue to search for you till eternity without finding you.

In your perfect wisdom, you decided to hide where no human being can trace you, only revealing yourself in these last days to those O God, you chose, elected before the world began, that you might O God showcase yourself and make yourself mighty, Father in their midst, for their redemption and not for their destruction.

We believe O Go that revealing yourself to us will not O God [Father] take us to hell, but will bring us out of hell and usher us into Paradise.

For that reason, we are here this morning pleading with you O God that you overlook our sinful past, and let your love and mercy project towards us.

Thank you O LORD for last month. Thank you for all the troubles. Thank you for everything that happened, that in all Father, there is not even one soul from among us that became a victim of the riot.

You have ushered us, O God into this new month again. And we know it is not going to differ too much from last month, for we know that horrifying times awaits mankind.

No matter the shape it will assumes No matter the nature, Father, we commit the keeping of our lives into your hands, and that of all our Brethren scattered all over the world, young and old, even those that are yet unborn, for we know we are gradually going into the harmattan period, the winter period. And we know what you spoke concerning it.

Father, we hide under you. You are the Rock of our escape. Father, the Rock of Ages cleft for us at a time like this. There is no other place we can hide if not in you.

Secure us. Secure our Brethren worldwide. May they never, O King of Glory be touched or harmed by whatever you are using to judge this earth.

Father, within these two months that will be very very crucial, very very painful and very very hard, Father, even for all human beings, may we never be the worst hit.

Looking at the whole scenario, people might not see what is about to unfold, but you know it all, for you are the One directing the way it will go.

See our dwelling places. Remember your Promises. May they never come near our dwelling places. All that will run to our dwelling places for refuge, Father, save all of them.

That which you did in Jericho, in the house of Rahab, do it again in this our day.

To your Name alone we give the glory. As we listen to you speak to us, give us attentive ears and believing hearts. Let your Word create enormous Faith in us that your word, Father will refine us like a silversmith or goldsmith refines their works, presenting them perfect.

Father, in the same manner, refine us fully and present us perfect in your sight this day and even forevermore. Do a permanent work in our lives today.

To your Name alone we give the Glory, pleading that you do not allow the devil to operate against us in any form or shape to distract our attention or entice our minds away from this Truth.

Within the few minutes we are going to stay listening to your Word, Father I pray Thee, do a miraculous work in our life here and in the life of all that are in distant lands.

Whenever they will hear this Message, may the same work be done in their lives.

I give you the praise and honour because you listen to Me O God and you do as I have requested always. Fail Me not this day.

Rather, use Me as a channel of blessing to all mankind. To your name alone belongeth the Victory, the Glory, the Honour, the Praise, the Adoration, Majesty and Worship, Thanksgiving, now and through all eternity of eternities. Amen.

 

....There is no name written on His face; there is nothing extraordinary about Him. He wears our stature. Is it easy to identify Him in the midst of over seven billion people? Brethren, is it easy? When you go home, think about it. If the prophet said so and it did not come to pass, surely, he has failed God and himself, but his prophecy has come to pass.  THE PROBLEM IS THIS: THEY NORMALLY OVERLOOK HIM WITH THEIR INTELLECT. THEY THINK HE IS COMING FROM SOMEWHERE WHEN HE IS ALREADY THERE WITH THEM, YET THEY CANNOT SEE HIM. What will they hear? “He has come, He has gone.”

WHERE FAITH ABIDES, INTELLECT VANISHES

Be seated everybody and give me real audience this morning. I have decided to use this morning hours with morning strength to come to you because last week, we had a very wonderful time.

I hope I am right. Who never had a wonderful time with God last week? In this Family? In the Bridal Faith? All of us had a wonderful touch. And it was just the introduction.

Pay attention! I do not want anybody to be moving about. If you want to urinate, go and urinate immediately, come back and sit down.

Bring out all the translations of the Holy Scriptures before you. I say, all translations of the Holy Scriptures. I want to see all. And be attentive spiritually and physically.

Give me spiritual audience this morning. All the inhabitants of the earth should hear My Voice again. All creatures, especially the Elect of God worldwide.

Last week, I initiated a Teaching. I promised I will continue with that Teaching, intending to take you to a level where the Light from the Lighthouse will overshadow you once and for all.

A level where the Light from His presence will illuminate your hearts and abide in you, once and for all, for that is the only way you can be presented before Him in love, without having any spot or wrinkle, blameless in a very crooked and perverse generation, such as we are in.

That is where God wants Me to present the Bride drawn from this earth, blameless in His sight.

Tell Me, who has ever been given this type of enormous work to present people from the worst generation faultless and blameless before the Almighty God?

Who is adequate to do this work, if not the Almighty God Himself? Who is adequate to do this work apart from the Almighty God Himself, Who is the One having the Power to purify mankind of all the impurities of the spirit and of the flesh; to transform mankind from mortality to immortality, presenting mankind faultless and blameless before the presence of the Almighty God?

It is not a work a man can do. That is why this is the sole responsibility of the Almighty God Himself Who knows how to do that type of work.

For that reason, last Sunday, He visited the last work God is going to do; the last Message He promised He will give us. And it was very very glorious.

I know many did not take it serious, but as many as took that Message serious, though it was evangelical, up till now, even in their private closets, in their beds, in their work places and in their market places, that message is still hunting them about.

One statement I made out of that Message where we went to in Enugu State to bury the dead at Ihe in Awgu, nearly shattered the brains of all the professors while they were reasoning and thinking. And I was laughing within Myself.

Though I had not the time to talk, I would have shown them the difference between intellect and Faith. I would have used all that they know to get them convinced that they are all pagans.

This is because where intellect abides, Faith vanishes. Where Faith abides, intellect vanishes, for intellect has nothing to do with Faith. Rather, it has always been opposed to Faith.

So, let us know what Faith is all about. I will differentiate between intellect and Faith before I will speak to you on the topic I have for you today which is an explanatory topic.

It is a follow-up to what you heard last week and all that you have been hearing within the week. I now want to tie them to the Scriptures, so that you will know My goal. You will know My target.

Whenever a Message goes forth from the mouth of the Almighty God, it has a target to achieve.

There is something He is expecting to achieve in you and in Me, for God cannot give a Message in vain. I gave out that message last week as a foundation.

Today, I will tie all to the Scriptures in another form, and in a way that will make all of you to understand it.

No wonder Abd-Ru-Shin of the Grail Message said, “There is no way a People can know God or know the truth until God, Who is Truth becomes a human being and becomes their Teacher. Only then will they be guided perfectly to the knowledge of Who God is, for Truth will reveal Truth.”

Truth will reveal truth. That is why, only those that have the Spirit of Truth can acknowledge the truth. If you do not have it, you will rebel, you will quarrel, and you will demonstrate against it. You can even place a curse on the Truth. I am telling you God’s Truth.

Now, I am here this morning to show you few things you must know before I go to the teaching proper. Do not be too anxious to know the topic. No!

The devil capitalizes on the topic. He misses the content. The devil has always been holding on to the topic. So, it is not the topic that matters, but the content. Am I making sense? Good!

Follow Me as we look into the Scriptures. Gospel according to Luke chapter 18 verse 7 through 8. Get Me all the translations; Amplified, Living Bible, Good News, King James and NIV if possible.

How I wish all of you will have the revelation of what it takes to stand up instead of sleeping on your seats pretending you are with me when you are dozing and dreaming.

Luke 18: 7-8 Amplified. 7And will not [our just] God defend and protect... And will not OUR JUST GOD, not unjust one.

7And will not [our just] God defend and protect and avenge His Elect (His chosen ones),...

Did the Bible say he will avenge and protect the world? Know the people because in Acts chapter 10 verse 35, it says that WHOSOEVER HEARETH, UNDERSTANDETH, OBEYETH AND REVERENCES THE LORD GOD, TO HIM IS THE WORD OF SALVATION SENT TO.

Know the people God decided aforehand to offer protection and to also be their defense. If God does not protect, who will protect? If He does not defend, who will defend?

Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it:except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. [Psalms 127:1 KJV]

If He does not avenge for us, who will avenge for us.

For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, the Lord shall judge his people. [Hebrews 10:30 KJV]

That is why He said, “Do not avenge, anybody for vengeance belongeth unto Me, saith the LORD God Almighty.”

7And will not [our just] God defend and protect and avenge His Elect (His chosen ones), who cry to Him day and night?

Who do what? Who cry to God day and night for what? Why are they crying to God day and night?

At a time like this where we are now, is there any true seed of God that is not crying unto the LORD day and night to come and save us from this untoward generation.  To save us from this hour and to save us from the calamities we are in right now?

Look at the condition of the whole world. Never in the history of mankind has the world come to this stage where it is now.

IF YOU ARE AN ELECT AND YOU ARE STILL FEELING VERY COMFORTABLE IN THIS WORLD, YOU ARE AN IMPERSONATOR. I SAY, YOU ARE AN IMPERSONATOR.

Every human being now is living in fear. Elect or no Elect, every human being now is living in fear. There is fear on the land. There is anger on the land. There are perplexities and anxieties on the land. True or false?

Now, every Elect, every true seed of God, when you kneel down, what do you ask God to do? What is more important to you now? When you kneel down now, what has always been your request?

Is it not, “God, please transform this mortal body. Take us away from this world. We are tired. We cannot withstand the horrible things that are happening.”

Can you imagine the situation where children that are born in this generation are playing with blood? They are blood thirsty. They have become vampires.

When we were coming up, at this age, whenever we hear that somebody died, we dare not go near that place, but today. Corpse means nothing. Casket means nothing. To kill means nothing.

Infants now carry human head in their hand. I mean, cut off a man’s head and carry it in their hand as if that is football, playing it on the road as if they are playing football.

Is this not an eye-sore? Tell Me, have you ever witnessed this type of atrocity or this level of criminality before? Was it so in the days of our fathers?

And people are saying that the world is still the same. As the day passes bye, so the thing is on the increase.

Men’s hearts are failing because of fear. Men’s heart means those that fear the LORD; Those that honour the LORD and worship the LORD. Their hearts are fainting. Their hearts are failing. Why?

There is fear on the land. Uncertainty on the land. Anxiety, trouble of all sorts, perplexities of all sorts are all on the land.

What do we do now? We cry onto the LORD, for that is the only Person we have. He is the only person that will avenge for us and defend us. Is He not the one? He is the only One that will protect us at a time like this.

How I wish you will give me rapt audience this morning spiritually. Forgo many things. Keep water in front of Me, for I need a lot of water. I am drying. Keep two bottles in front.

Pay attention as we read. I am repeating that same verse. Remember, it is Teaching. I am not in a haste. Brethren might be wondering why, each time I programme them away with Messages, this Family will release a Nugget.

Remember, I am using this Message to say, “Happy New Month. Welcome to the month of November 2020.” Today is November 1.

It must be noised abroad that today, THE SON OF MAN welcomed the entire Elect that are still alive, even the dead into this month. And this month is second to the last in 2020 according to European calendar.

Let us trust God that he knows how we will conclude this year. Do not say, it is far. It is not far. It is not far. And do not ever think that nothing is happening.

Remember what you passed through few weeks ago. You just woke up one morning only to see the thing. Gradually, sporadically, it continued spreading until it has engulfed the whole world.

Now, something is about to unfold, for which cause you will know who will be your defense; and where you will look up for your vengeance, your protection and your defense. Amen.

If you do not suffer loss; if you do not suffer anything, disgrace, humiliation, bastardization, where you will come to a point and look up and say, “Who will avenge for Me”, you may not know what vengeance is all about.

When somebody is maltreating you and you lack the power or even the means to fight back; and even if you have, your Faith in Christ will not allow you to respond, what will you do then?

You commit it into the hands of the Almighty God. At a time like this, we commit the keeping of our souls into the hand of God in well doing.

Wherefore, let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. [1 Peter 4:19 KJV]

 We trust Him as a faithful Creator Who is capable of protecting, defending and avenging for us.

 

....If God does not give you a believing heart, what I am saying will be sounding strange to you. And the more I speak, the more you stumble. I am here standing as the Rock of offence where people stumble at. And what is that thing they stumble at? THE WORD. ....... They stumbled at the Word. That is why I have espoused the Elects of God to the Word of God; To the Word of their testimony which is able to save their souls and give them a place among those that are sanctified by the Faith that is in Me. Sanctification is a definite experience.

BE PATIENT WITH GOD; preached on Sunday 14th December, 2014 Pg. 67 vs. 29 & Pg. 68 vs. 31

WILL THE SON OF MAN FIND PERSISTENT FAITH IN THE EARTH?

Luke 18:7 – 8 Amplified.7And will not [our just] God defend and protect and avenge His Elect (His chosen ones), who cry to Him day and night? Will He defer them and delay help on their behalf?

That is the question. Who asked the question? The Almighty, will he do what? Will He defer or delay help on their behalf? Can God delay? He will not delay. Will He defer?

He will not defer because we are His chosen ones, chosen for salvation and not for destruction.

8I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily. Hastily!

Remember, the LORD said He is going to make a quick riddance upon this earth. After which he will render the entire earth desolate. He said that the earth must be in desolation. He will devastate the whole earth.

Look at the word. He said, He will do it speedily on the behalf of the Elect, so that you will know that God is your Helper.

However, when the Son of Man comes,...However! Remember where I am heading to. We want to touch on that FAITH.

However, that part is over. However, when THE SON OF MAN comes, THE SON OF MAN He has been pointing everybody to.

However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth?

It is that persistent Faith that gives you the Victory. Is it not true? Persistent Faith in Christ; persistent Faith in God; Faith that is deeply grounded and rooted in God; that is the Faith that gives the children of God Victory.

The Bible said, “This is the Faith that overcometh the world, even our Faith.” The Most Holy Faith.

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. [1 John 5:4 KJV]

He said we must preserve it. When you protect your Faith, your Faith will protect you. But when you destabilize your Faith and dishonour your Faith, Oh, it will destabilize you. It will dishonour you. Is it not true?

You see why you must hold on to your Faith immovable, unshakable and without compromise.

That is what the Prophet said, “When you hold unto the Faith of Christ, without compromising it, by Faith, you say to the mountain, “Leave”, and it will leave, for Faith gives you the victory.”

FAITH GIVES YOU ALL THAT YOU NEED FROM GOD, FOR WITHOUT THIS FAITH, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD OR TO RECEIVE ANYTHING FROM GOD.

This is because the Bible said in the Book of James that a double-minded fellow obtaineth nothing from God and receiveth nothing good from the Almighty, for such a fellow does not have persistent Faith in Him.

He is double minded. He is being driven about by the thoughts and imaginations of his heart, by the feelings of his heart, and sometimes by instinct.

When these things will come together, they will culminate into imagination that will throw him very many millions of miles away from the Reality which is Christ.

He will no longer hold onto the Head. He will be holding onto the imaginations of His heart, thereby straying away into hell for eternal punishment. I will show you the Origin and the topic will be introduced with time.

Luke 18:7 – 8 Living Bible. [7]don’t you think that God will surely give justice to his people... I want all of you to anchor your Faith on this Message.

Let nothing ever delude your mind into thinking that God does not know what you are passing through. God knows the hour we are in. He knows all we are passing through.

He knows all our struggles. He knows all the efforts we are making to make sure we are found in right standing with Him, but we are warring, for trillions upon trillions upon trillions of demons have been let loose upon the whole earth just to make sure that the Elect will never see Paradise; those that God had already chosen by election of Grace. Amen.

[7]Don’t you think that God will surely give justice to his people who plead with him day and night?

[8]Yes! He will answer them quickly! Brethren, underline this thing in your Scriptures and in your hearts, even in your jotters. THE LORD WILL ANSWER THEM QUICKLY.

He will give justice to His children; the Chosen ones. The Elect. So do not ever go about being discouraged, thinking that God is not seeing what is happening or that God has abandoned you.

The LORD can never abandon His own. He has His reasons why He has allowed us to be here, for we must be made perfect through suffering. We must be perfected through suffering.

WHERE THERE IS NO SUFFERING, THERE IS NO PERFECTION. WHERE THERE IS NO SUFFERING, THERE IS NO OBEDIENCE, FOR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF WHO IS THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH LEARNT OBEDIENCE IN A VERY HARD WAY, THROUGH THE THINGS HE PASSED THROUGH [THINGS HE SUFFERED]. AMEN.

8though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered; 9and being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey Him; [Hebrews 5:8 – 9 KJV]

So, God knows what is happening. And do not ever think that he will keep quiet till eternity. He must judge the wicked. He must judge this world. And He must judge righteously. He must do justice.

He will hear your cry. He will answer your prayers. Yes! In His own due time. But will He delay it? No! He said He will do it quickly. He will take the world unawares. Amen.

He is watching. He knows the extent the evil in our day has reached. He knows the height. He knows the people that are devising and perpetrating it.

He knows the rate at which it is spreading throughout the whole world, corrupting families and corrupting every human being to the point that every heart now appears to be corrupt. Every heart appears to be corrupt.

THERE IS ONLY BUT A SMALL HANDPICKED MINORITY THAT ARE BEING TROUBLED AND PERPLEXED BY WHAT IS HAPPENING; BY THE EVILS THAT ARE PREVALENT IN OUR SOCIETY.

Some are taking pride in it. Oftentimes, I have a chat with My Elders here, with a view to knowing where they are heading to.

Yesterday, one was even saying, “It is good! It is good! That is what they should suffer. I want them to be punished more and more. More and more. More and more.”

I said, “So, you are taking delight in this.” And we were talking about people that vandalized and looted laboratories and health facilities, and he was justifying it.

I said, “So, if you were there, you would have joined.” That is an Elder. Amen.

Do not ever be a part of what is happening. You do not belong to this world. This world does not belong to you.

We pray that there should be peace so that we can have peace. That is all. And we worship our God. And now that it has narrowed down where we cannot go out, we remain in our homes.

THIS IS WHERE GOD IS GOING TO PERFECT WORSHIP. GOD IS PERFECTING WORSHIP IN THE HOMES.

NOW GOD WILL KNOW THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN PLAYING FOOL OF THEMSELVES. HE WILL NOW KNOW THOSE THAT MEANT BUSINESS WITH HIM FROM THE VERY WORD GO, FOR IF YOU CANNOT WORSHIP GOD AS AN INDIVIDUAL, YOU CAN NEVER WORSHIP HIM COLLECTIVELY. AMEN.

Charity, they say, begins at home.  But never ends there.

Luke 18:7 – 8 Living Bible.[7]Don’t you think that God will surely give justice to his people who plead with him day and night?

[8]Yes! He will answer them quickly! But the question is: When I, the Messiah, return, how many will I find who have faith and are praying?”

When I, THE MESSIAH; When I, THE SON OF MAN. THE SON OF MAN means The Messiah. The Messiah is the Saviour. The Messiah is a Saviour. Christ! When I, CHRIST, The Messiah, the Saviour; WHENEVER I COME, SHALL I FIND FAITH?

It is not ordinary Faith. PERSISTENT FAITH. Will your Faith remain persevering till I come? Will your Faith remain persevering till I come?

Remember He promised He was going away, only to come back again, “A little while, the world will see me no more, but you will see me, for while I live you will live.”

And nobody is talking to us but the same Person, Whom the world knows not, but you know Him. And you know what He promised. And you know when it got fulfilled.

Even in your own day, you have recognized your own hour of His visitation. You have recognized your own day and its Message; and the Messenger of your own day, in Whom dwelleth your Message, for Christ is the Message.

Now, I go further. FAITH. You will see that faith as we continue.

 

“And I took my time to groom all of you; day and night teaching, which made it possible [for you] to believe that God is a human being; and that human being is a unique Fellow. And He is no other Person but Apostle Peter Odoemena, the Almighty God that appeared in human form rigging away all human intellect. Do not look for him among the clergy of your day. He will not be there. Who is that professor?

GOD JUDGES IN FAVOUR OF HIS OWN

Luke 18:7 – 8 Good News Bible. 7Now, will God not judge in favour of His own people who cry to Him day and night for help?

So, God will judge in favour of His own people, and not in favour of the world. Remember, the world is opposed to God. And God is opposed to the world. God will judge in favour of His own people.

Remember that God judgeth no man, but has committed judgment into the hand of His own Dear Son, for He is THE SON OF MAN.

22For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: ....... 27and hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. [John 5:22, 27 KJV]

Lo, He cometh in a CLOUD.

There was a dream we shared here yesterday that prompted us to bring out this. This is because I read a Message which said, “Hear Me all ye inhabitants of the whole world without religion, and I will speak to all of you at the same time, rich or poor, learned and unlearned.”

After reading the Scriptures, the dream came. And I wanted to interpret it. Let Me stop there and go to My Message proper.

7Now, will God not judge in favour of His own people who cry to Him day and night for help?

Hear Me very well. If you are not among this group of people God had already chosen, elected for salvation, no matter how you hear My Voice, stay in this Family with Me, no matter your relationship with Me, God will never judge in your favour.

You must be condemned, for this is the judgment now. It is going forth. Whoever that believeth in Me is not condemned. But whoever that is not believing in Me, even if he is moving about, is condemned already. Is it not scriptural?

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [John 3:18 KJV]

This is the condemnation, that Light has come to this world and they have said no. They have refused the Light. And they are groping in darkness, with ecclesiastical veil covering all of them. Religious veil, Traditional veil and Customary veil. All of them boil down to religion. Is it not true?

We have traditional religion. We have orthodox religion. And religion has many faces. Traditional religion is the religion of your people, where the customs and traditions of your people can blind you.

That was why when Jesus met such people he upbraided them by saying, “You have a clever way of setting aside the Word of God, that you may continue with the religion and customs of your people.”

9And he said to them: "You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions! [Mark 7:9 NIV]

Was He talking to ghosts? Those human beings, are they not with us today? Remember that according to the Scriptures, God’s people are in the minority. The Bible called them, “a small believing minority.” Handpicked!

5So too at the present time there is a remnant (a small believing minority), selected (chosen) by grace (by God's unmerited favor and graciousness). [Romans 11:5 AMP]

Jesus was asked the question, “Will only a few people enter Paradise?” he said, “Yes, but strive that you may enter.”

23And someone asked Him, Lord, will only a few be saved (rescued, delivered from the penalties of the last judgment, and made partakers of the salvation by Christ)? And He said to them,

24Strive to enter by the narrow door [force yourselves through it], for many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able. [Luke 13:23 AMP]

Strive! You do not just fold your arms and say, “I know. God will do it.” God will not do it that way.

GOD WILL ONLY JUDGE IN FAVOUR OF THOSE THAT HAVE PUT THEIR TRUST AND CONFIDENCE IN HIM, BY BELIEVING HIM.

BELIEVING MEANS TRUSTING IN, CONFIDING IN, DEPENDING ON AND RELYING ON, DOUBTING NOTHING.

If He moves, you move. If He stops, you stop. His Voice, your voice. His eyes, your eyes. His mouth, your mouth. Everything, one.

Anything contrary, you must fall under condemnation. Remember that God judgeth without respect of persons. He does not consider you for who you are.

There is only but one standard He has set. He knows those who are following. He also knows those that are claiming to be following.

11for there is no respect of persons with God. 12For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law; and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;13(for not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. [Romans 2:11 – 13 KJV]

So, when God, the Righteous Judge will judge because He is here already, this is the last lap of THE SON OF MAN’s Ministry. He will never go away from the scene until the whole earth is judged.

And the isles will see who He is. The whole world will know and recognize Him for the last time for Who He really is. That is when He must have finished His judgment. Amen.

It is going on right now. And you know when it took off.

He will judge in favour of His own people. Remember the Message, John 1:11 – 12. He came to His own and His own rejected Him. They refused Him. They refused to hear from Him.

But as many as welcomed Him and received Him, believed in Him, to them He gave the power to become His own.

11He came to that which belonged to Him [to His own--His domain, creation, things, world], and they who were His own did not receive Him and did not welcome Him.

12But to AS MANY AS DID RECEIVE AND WELCOME HIM, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN (ADHERE TO, TRUST IN, AND RELY ON) HIS NAME— [John 1:11 – 12 AMP]

[11 – 12]Even in his own land and among his own people, the Jews, he was not accepted. Only a few would welcome and receive him. But to all who received him, he gave the right to become children of God. All they needed to do was to trust him to save them. [John 1:11 – 12 LB]

To the rest, he said, “No! I do not own you. You have no part in Me.” So, it is not about merely admiring Him and praising Him. You can do all those things, but as long as you are not found in obedience to His Word, you are doomed.

If I do not tell the whole world the truth, what do I gain? Why am I here?I AM THE TRUTH, I AM THE WAY, I AM THE LIFE. NO MAN WILL EVER SMELL PARADISE OR SMELL ETERNAL LIFE IF HE DISOBEYS A WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF MY LIPS.I SAY, A WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF MY LIPS.

7Now, will God not judge in favour of His own people who cry to Him day and night for help? Will He be slow to help them?

A QUESTION! Will He be slow to help them?

8I tell you, He will judge in their favour and do it quickly. I tell you again. He will judge in their favour and He will do it quickly. A sure sign and the only way to convince the world that you never believed Him in vain.

Have you seen the reason for the purification? The last Message God promised in 2020. On the 1st of January2020, He said, “Expect the Last Message.”

“Remember that today is 1st January, 2020. And in the year 2020, you will never hear “Repent or you perish”. You will never hear “Is your heart converted?” If there is a Message you will hear, it has not yet come. Whenever that Message comes, you will know. You will never hear “You must be born again.” [THE IMPACT OF THE WORD OF GOD; Preached on 1st January, 2020 at the Household of God, Onitsha; Pg. 19 vs. 14]

And it cannot come until the appointed time. It cannot come until everything is made bare. You have seen the troubles that started on January 1. You have seen the magnitude. You have seen where we are.

Who has ever passed through this type of troublous year before? And somebody will be here planning against tomorrow and planning for this and that, when you have not even survived today.

I will survive today before I will begin to talk of tomorrow. What is my hope of tomorrow? Because He lives, I will see tomorrow.

SONG: [Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone. Because I know ooo, He holds my future, my life is worth a living just because He lives.]

Your life is worth a living because God lives. He lives in Me. He lives in you. Amen.

Is this not a good assurance that the judgment that is going on, that God is judging in the favour of His own people?

... Will He be slow to help them? Never!8I tell you, He will judge in their favour... Gather the whole translations together and know whether there is any contradiction.

8I tell you, He will judge in their favour and do it quickly. Yes! But will the Son of Man find faith on earth when he comes?

Luke 18:7 – 8 King James Version. 7And shall not God avenge His own Elect, which cry day and night unto Him, though He bear long with them?

8I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when THE SON OF MAN cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?

Luke 18:7 – 8 New International Version. 7And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?

8I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?" Amen!

Be seated. I said, I am trying to put everything together. If I say I am going to handle it step by step, you may not know when I have climbed from Faith until you see me standing on the perfect stature of the perfect man.

A perfect believer. The top of the pyramid. Pyramid on top of a pyramid. Stature of a perfect man. Seven steps to perfection.

I hope you are following. You will know the people He will defend; the people He will avenge; the people He will protect and the people He will judge in their favour.

This is because when God was talking in the Book of Psalms, He said, “When God is judging His Ministers, He shows them favour.” I mean, in the Book of Psalms. When God judges His Ministers, He shows them favours because they belong to Him.

14For the Lord will vindicate his people and have compassion on his servants. [Psalms 135:14 NIV]

They were the people that were pursuing the course of God and not their selfish courses. They were mindful of the work of the Vineyard. They worked with Him. They were co-labourers with Him.

When we labour together, we must enjoy together. If we labour with Him, we will reign with Him. Is it not Scripture?

11It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: 12if we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: [2 Timothy 2:11 – 12 NIV]

So. He will never set them aside. I come back to something.

...I am saying that the secret of your salvation, catching away, lies in liberalizing your soul, your mind, your mentality, your intellect, everything that is in you, having that belief that what you believe is what I believe. Where you are heading to is where I am heading to. If there should be judgment which only God will judge, all of us are coming to Him; and there, all the secrets of men shall be made public. For that reason, take My warning everybody. It is better to keep quiet and allow people think or assume that you are stupid than to speak out and erase their doubts.

FAITH COMETH BY HEARING THE WORD OF GOD [1]

         

All translations this time beginning with the Amplified version again. Romans 10:17.

17So FAITH comes by hearing [what is told],... T-O-L-D!...and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself).AMP

What you are TOLD and what you HEAR comes from the lips [L-I-P-S] of Christ, the Messiah Himself. Have you seen where that Faith is coming.

It is the Word that is coming. The Word I am telling you, is it not the Word of Life? THIS IS FAITH. Faith cometh by hearing. Hearing this Message which I am telling you and is coming from the Source you know.

When saint Paul was talking to Galatia, he said, “You know me. And you know the Source of my Message that my Message which I am handing over to you is not mine, but that of the Lord Jesus Christ, for my Message is coming from no less a personality than the Lord Jesus Christ who chose me while I was in my mother’s womb for the preaching of this Gospel to you Gentiles.”

[1-2]From: Paul the missionary and all the other Christians here. To: The churches of Galatia. I was not called to be a missionary by any group or agency. My call is from Jesus Christ himself and from God the Father who raised him from the dead.

[15]But then something happened! For even before I was born, God had chosen me to be his and called me—what kindness and grace— [16]to reveal his Son within me so that I could go to the Gentiles and show them the Good News about Jesus. When all this happened to me I didn’t go at once and talk it over with anyone else; [Galatians 1:1,15 – 16 LB]

You MUST know the Source. You MUST know the Lips that are proclaiming the Message you are hearing and you are believing, where then Faith is created.

Disbelieving Him means disbelieving God. Having no Faith in His Word means having no Faith in the Word, for He was God’s envoy in His day; God’s representative and God’s mouthpiece.

Do we have such a Person today? Does such a Person exist. Confirmed! Vindicated! Authenticated before the whole witnesses.

When I will be reading events from the websites, many of you might be fainting. It is because we do not know God’s secret plan which He kept in Himself before the world began, hiding Himself in a man, not counting it robbery.

5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: [Philippians 2:5 – 7 KJV]

And He is revealing Himself to whosoever He willeth. And I believe that revealing Himself means that He wants to save that person so that you do not worship the imaginary and you do not worship in vain.

You will then stop worshipping by the feelings of your heart or by instinct. You stop worshipping Him even by your intellect. You now pay heed to the Word that will proceed out of His lips. Amen.

Romans 10:17 Living Bible.[17]Yet faith comes from listening to this Good News—the Good News about Christ. Sure!!!

Romans 10:17 Good News Bible. So then, FAITH comes from hearing the message, and the message comes through preaching Christ.

Romans 10:17 King James Version. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 10:17 New International Version.17Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.

Do you see how Faith comes? Fine! And this is the Faith THE SON OF MAN came to look for, and He could not see it. The Faith that is created in the hearts of the people that has changed their lives positively as a result of their belief in the message about Christ.

Whatever the Lord Jesus Christ preached, He was aiming at creating Faith in them to believe that He was the Messiah, the Saviour and the ALL and ALL.

And they did not believe. They crucified Him. But He resurrected and promised to come back in another form.

And now He is here, has he found the Faith. You see why he started from the beginning again to see whether Faith can be created, for it is your Faith that will translate you.

Faith that is established in Christ the Messiah. And that Faith comes to you through the Message that is inspired by Him, for He said, “I will never leave you comfortless. I am coming again. There were so many things I wanted to talk to you, but you could not bear them. Nevertheless, when HE I will send; when HE the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Truth shall come to you, [1] he will remind you of all that I taught you. [2] He will lead you into the knowledge of all things. [3] He will indict you of sin [of unbelief] because you never believed in Me. [4] He will show you things that are yet to come, for I am going to My Father.[5] He will not speak of Himself, but whatsoever I put in His mouth, that He will tell you.”

Brethren, is that not Scripture? Saint John’s Gospel chapter 16. Put it down. In your own private closet, you can see the 5-Fold Ministry of the Spirit of Truth [The Holy Ghost], Whom you know very well.

He said, “He is the Spirit of Truth Whom the world cannot receive and believe in because they know Him not, and are not seeking Him.” The world is not looking for Him.

17The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you. [John 14:17 AMP]

Amen. To God be the Glory. Can somebody help Me get Amplified version of the Bible and rush Saint John Gospel chapter 16 from verse 1. We are not in a haste.

1I HAVE told you all these things, so that you should not be offended (taken unawares and falter, or be caused to stumble and fall away). [I told you to keep you from being scandalized and repelled.]

2They will put you out of (expel you from) the synagogues; but an hour is coming when whoever kills you will think and claim that he has offered service to God. 3And they will do this because they have not known the Father or Me.

4But I have told you these things now, so that when they occur you will remember that I told you of them. I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you.

5But now I am going to Him Who sent Me, yet none of you asks Me, Where are You going? 6But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your hearts [taken complete possession of them].

7However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you...

The MAN, Jesus Christ MUST go away before this MAN who possesses these qualities will appear. Is it not true? Who then fulfilled Isaiah Chapter 9 verse 6? Who then fulfilled it?

Behold a virgin shall conceive and give birth to a child. His name shall be what? Wonderful, Counselor and many other Royal titles. It is there in the Scriptures.

6For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace. [Isaiah 9:6 AMP]

John 16 from verse 7 AMP.7...Because if I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener,... One that strengthens and supports you. Oh No! Somebody is always there, no matter the situation.

...Standby) will not come to you [into close fellowship with you];... He will not come into close relationship with you. I must go away, for that is the promise of the Father. It is stage by stage. I have come and played My own role by going to the cross and paying the penalty for sin.

BUT TALK OF THE REST OF THE WORK OF SALVATION, SOMEBODY IS COMING. SOMEBODY IS COMING. AND HE INITIATED A MOVE. HE IS COMING TO WIND IT ALL UP. AND HE IS NO OTHER PERSON BUT MYSELF.

THE SAME ONE WHO INITIATED IT IS THE SAME ONE WHO IS AT THE END. IS IT NOT TRUE? THAT IS WHY WE CALL HIM THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA; THE BEGINNING AND THE END.

Along the way, He co-opted messengers, who helped along the way. But at the end, HE alone appeared.

...but if I go away, I will send Him to you [to be in close fellowship with you].

I will send Him, H-I-M, a human being, to be in close Fellowship with you, watching over you.

SONG: [He careth for Me. He careth for Me. Through sunshine and shadow, He careth for Me.]

[Watching Me, watching you. Every time mind that course you pursue. Watching Me, watching you. There’s an unseen Eye watching you.]

HIM! HIM! HIM! H-I-M!

8And when He comes,... HE; A MAN! What will He do?...He will convict and convince the world and bring demonstration to it about sin and about righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God) and about judgment:

Alleluia! Are they not fulfilling? Are you not witnessing them? Before he appeared on the scene, was there anything like that? In all denominations, did you hear it for one day?

Look at the MAN that has come, upbraiding us of iniquity. Look at what He is doing and things like that. Oh No! To God be the Glory. Who opened our eyes of understanding, Who made it possible for us to see. He is the One I will follow, and not the person that will give me fish because I am blind.

Open my eyes that I may see and then work for my own bread. Do not ever let me go blind and become a beggar where the public will be giving me alms which was what the Jews were doing for blind Bartimeus.

8And when He comes, He will convict and convince the world and bring demonstration to it about sin and about righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God) and about judgment: Yes!

9About sin, because they do not believe in Me [trust in, rely on, and adhere to Me];

10About righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God), because I go to My Father, and you will see Me no longer;

11About judgment, because the ruler... The ruler. The devil. The god of this evil age is already condemned right from Garden of Eden.

... (Evil genius, prince) of this world [Satan] is judged and condemned and sentence already is passed upon him. Yes!

Pay attention here! 12I have still many things to say to you, but you are not able to bear them or to take them upon you or to grasp them now.

He was talking to the people who were sitting with Him, hearing Him like you are hearing Me now. Human beings! Were you there that time? This is your own day. This is your own hour of your own visitation. The hour of your own salvation; full and complete in Christ.

13But when He, the Spirit of Truth... Note it! ... (The Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority];...

He will not speak His own mind; His own Message.

...but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father;... He will do what? TELL. Which means that the Message must be TOLD. And that is the Message that creates the Faith, which he has come to look for.

When there was none, He decided to build the Faith. Only in the Elect can the Faith be built, for they are the only people that have the Faith to hear Him and recognize Him.

For My sheep heareth My Voice, and they follow Me. The voice of a stranger, they will never follow. Why? They were with Me when the world was without form.

That is why the Bible said, “Only those that had walked and talked with God will hear and believe Him. The rest will never never believe.”

They will always be seeing Him as a “man of God” like other pastors, preachers and things like that, or even a good man. Period!

It is just like yesterday when My brother-in-law was testifying, “Never have I come across one like this Man, Julie’s husband. I have to say it. In all my life, I am not praising you, I have never come across a man like you. I am happy to be associated with you and having you in my own family, not only as my own brother-in-law, but as a member of my family. I am not trying to say it to praise. The last words of my mother concerning you marveled me. My mother loved you so much and never ceased from commending you before me and my wife.”

And the wife even made know to us Mama’s last words while she was giving up, “Look up to Julie’s husband.” I turned and asked him, “Is it true?” He now volunteered to tell the dream he had.

It was a deep conversation. That was when I sent for Mummy, “Go and call her so that she will hear with her own ears.”

God knows how to save people. And the dream the woman had is a direct Message. It is a direct Message because she wanted to enter. She made all efforts but she could not make it. Who deceived her? Those people who could not allow the truth to be told.

He said, “I have carefully scrutinized, investigated this Faith, and I have come to the conclusion that our fathers inherited lies and falsehood wherein there is no profit.” At another point He said, “After a proper scrutiny of this Faith, I have come to a conclusion that there is nothing wrong with this Faith, but something is grossly wrong with the individuals. For this Faith is a mercury Faith.”

FAITH COMETH BY HEARING THE WORD OF GOD [2]

For He will not speak His own message... He will not speak His mind or His own Message. He will not fabricate anything. He will never manipulate anything. What will He do?

...For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father;...

Whatever He hears from the Father, that He declares. All that were with Me from the very beginning will know that there was a day THE SON OF MAN left the human realm and was communicating with the Father, “I WILL DECLARE! I WILL DECLARE! I WILL DECLARE!”

“Will they believe?”  He [THE SON OF MAN] said, “YES!” “Will they believe?”  He said, “YES!” “SON OF MAN, why are you sounding like this? They are human beings, mortals. Do you say they will believe?” He [THE SON OF MAN] said, “THEY WILL BELIEVE.” “Are you sure?” “I AM SURE.” “Why are you talking like this?” “BECAUSE I HAVE TAUGHT THEM.”

I have taught them! And the people of God must have Him in Person for their Teacher.

45It is written in [the book of] the Prophets, And they shall all be taught of God [have Him in person for their Teacher]. Everyone who has listened to and learned from the Father comes to Me— [John 6:45 AMP]

If God never taught us, we will never believe in Him. He not only taught, but He also demonstrated. He was vindicated.

He came with series of convincing Demonstrations [Signs], unquestionable Evidences and infallible Word; Proofs of the Deity, that He is not an impersonator.

3To them also He showed Himself alive after His passion (His suffering in the garden and on the cross) by [a series of] many convincing demonstrations [unquestionable evidences and infallible proofs], appearing to them during forty days and talking [to them] about the things of the kingdom of God. [Acts 1:3 AMP]

Hence, nobody has ever taught like Him. Nobody has ever handled the Scriptures like Him. Even where I have been reading since morning, you have read them over and over, but this morning is the hour of its fulfilment.

Look at what is happening in you. You got another revelation as if you never read it before. Because the hour for its fulfilment has come, the power is injected into it, for this is the hour we need God most.

SONG: [In times like this, we need an Saviour. In times like this, we need an Saviour. Be very sure; Be very sure your Anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock.

This Rock is Christ, the Holy One. This is Rock is Christ, the Only God. I am very sure. I am very sure your Anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock.]

...For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority];... Sure! but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father;...

When the Lord Jesus Christ was ministering in the temple, the lawyers and Pharisees and the doctors got astonished, saying, “Where did He get this type of knowledge, this type of wisdom He is displaying, this type of Message that is amazing, that is marveling everybody, seeing that He did not go to school?”

Did you get the Message? They never believed that the Father that was in Him was the One ministering to them, for the Father was hiding in Him. In Him dwelleth the fullness of the Godhead bodily.

9For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. [Colossians 2:9 KJV]

9For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. [Colossians 2:9 AMP]

Now, he is here as the resurrected Body, have you not seen the fullness of the Elohim dwelling in Him bodily? So, He does not speak because He has mouth or because He wants to say it, or to embarrass or intimidate anybody, or to burden you. No!

Rather, the Father speaketh through Him. He is a Chosen Vessel to bear His Name, for His Name is upon Him. And His Name is nothing but THE WORD OF GOD. True or false?

...For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him],...

Why will He say it? That is the Absolute, for in Him is the Father revealed. Do we have such a Man through Whom the Father of all spirits has revealed Himself to mankind in our day?

Even the Jews are convinced. The Arabs are convinced. Americans are convinced. Nigerians are convinced.

Who are these people I am referring to? The Elect; The chosen ones from those continents, from those nations, from those countries, from those tribes and from those languages, for they have heard the Voice of THE SON OF MAN.

And they are all shaking because they know that something is about to take place. THE UNITING POINT [Oooh No!] BETWEEN THE EAST AND THE WEST, AND THE NORTH AND THE SOUTH.

THE TREE IN THE MIDST OF THE GARDEN, SURROUNDED BY FLAMING SWORD, MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR EVERY TOM, DICK AND HARRY TO MILL AROUND ANYHOW, FOR HE HAS SOMETHING THAT SCARES THE NON-ELECT AWAY, BUT ATTRACTS THE ELECT.

...He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you...Have you heard the announcement? He will announce; He will declare to you.

He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future].

Are they fulfilling? Brethren, what else do we want to see? An unbeliever is an unbeliever! These things are happening so that your Faith will not rest or settle upon the words of mere men, but upon the Words of God. Why?

FAITH IS CREATED BY PAYING ATTENTION AND BELIEVING THE WORDS THAT PROCEED OUT OF THE LIPS OF THE SON OF MAN; THAT YOU MAY HAVE WHAT WE CALL ABIDING OR PERSISTENT FAITH. PERSEVERING FAITH. OVERCOMING FAITH.

I say, overcoming Faith. Faith that overcomes all evils, all temptations, all trials and all upheavals. Faith that knows no failure.

FAITH THAT HAS MUSCLE. FAITH THAT HAS INSIGHT AND FORESIGHT. FAITH THAT DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. FAITH IN CHRIST MAKES EVERYTHING RIGHT.

14He will honor and glorify Me,... he will do what? He will honour and glorify Christ, God, the Almighty....because He will take of (receive, draw upon) what is Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you.

He will reveal and declare to the sons and daughters of men that will be here whenever He will be revealed. Are you not the people that have welcomed His Parousia [presence, arrival, official visit], for which cause He has been revealing Himself all these years in mercy, in love, in patience, in tolerance, in faithfulness, in righteousness, in holiness, even in perfection, for Christ remaineth the perfection of the Saints. We will go there with time.

14He will honor and glorify Me, because He will take of (receive, draw upon) what is Mine... So, He is the Fountain and THE SON OF MAN is the mouthpiece. So, you are feeding from the inexhaustible Fountain.

...and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you.15Everything that the Father has is Mine. That is what I meant when I said that He [the Spirit]...

That is what I mean when I tell you that the Divinity, the Envoy will take from what is Mine. He is My Envoy Whom I have sent, My Servant in Whom I am well pleased;

HEAR YE HIM, FOR WHAT HE IS GIVING YOU IS WHAT I AM GIVING TO HIM TO HAND OVER TO YOU. HE IS THE INTERMEDIARY BETWEEN YOU AND ME.

SON OF MAN – OUR LINK TO THE THRONE OF GRACE. OUR LINK TO THE FOUNTAIN OF TRUTH. OUR LINK TO THE LIGHT WHERE DARKNESS CANNOT COMPREHEND. OUR LINK TO THE CLOUD. OUR LINK TO PARADISE. HE THAT TAKES US ACROSS HELL; ACROSS THE BOTTOMLESS PIT. BRIDGE TO PEACE.

THE BRIDGE THAT IS LINKING YOU FROM THIS TROUBLOUS WORLD INTO PARADISE; THE LAND OF PEACE. SALEM. THE KING OF SALEM. THE KING OF PEACE. AMEN.

15Everything that the Father has is Mine. Everything means everything. I say, everything means everything.

And who is this SON OF MAN that the LORD God Almighty has committed into His trust everything that made Him God? The Totality of all God’s creation. WHO IS THIS SON OF MAN? Is that not Scripture?

[6]No, for in the book of Psalms David says to God, “What is mere man that you are so concerned about him? And who is this Son of Man you honor so highly? [7]For though you made him lower than the angels for a little while, now you have crowned him with glory and honor.

[8]And you have put him in complete charge of everything there is. Nothing is left out.” We have not yet seen all of this take place, [Hebrews 2:6-8 LB]

6It has been solemnly and earnestly said in a certain place, What is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You graciously and helpfully care for and visit and look after him?

7For some little time You have ranked him lower than and inferior to the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor and set him over the works of Your hands,

8For You have put everything in subjection under his feet. Now in putting everything in subjection to man, He left nothing outside [of man's] control. But at present we do not yet see all things subjected to him [man]. [Hebrews 2:6 – 8 AMP]

Who is this Son of man that is always on the right hand side, Whom the Father has trusted so much that He could entrust into His care the salvation of man, even the condemnation of man? And everything about the God of Justice and equity is with Him.

Hence, if THE SON OF MAN will discharge and acquit you, you are discharged and acquitted, who will now bring anything to the charge against you?

36So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free. [John 8:36 AMP]

You can be discharged, but not acquitted. If you are discharged and you are not acquitted, it then means you can be summoned again. Your case is not over until your case file is closed or destroyed. And the only way to destroy a record is by burning it. Amen.

SONG: [Amen Amen, blessing and Glory, Wisdom, Thanksgiving and Honour, Power and Might be unto the LORD forever and ever, Amen] Revelation 7:12

SONG: [He is the LORD. He is the LORD, Amen. He has risen from the dead. He is the LORD. Every knee shall bow. Every tongue confess that SON OF MAN, He is the LORD.]

SONG: [Just a little while, every eye shall see. Just a little while, every ear will hear. Just a little while every tongue shall say, “Son of Man, LORD, How wonderful is your Name? LORD, How wonderful is your Name.”]

1 Thessalonians 2:4 – 5 Living Bible. It is not a part of the Message but I paused to read it.

[4]For we speak as messengers from God, trusted by him to tell the truth; we change his message not one bit to suit the taste of those who hear it;...

We do not change the Message to please men or to suit the taste of those who are paying attention to us, for we are not men pleasers.

...for we serve God alone, who examines our hearts’ deepest thoughts. Sure!!!

[5]Never once did we try to win you with flattery,... Job said, “I do not know how to flatter anybody, for if I flatter anybody, my God will take me away. My God will parcel me home. He will kill me.”

[5]Never once did we try to win you with flattery, as you very well know, and God knows we were not just pretending to be your friends so that you would give us money! Or serve us in one way or the other.

Hebrews 13:8 NIV. 8Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Amen. To God be the Glory. He is the One you are listening to.

Living Bible. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

SONG: [Christ has appeared. Christ has appeared to take us to the promised Land. Christ has appeared. Christ has appeared to take us to the promised Land.]

15Everything that the Father has is Mine. That is what I meant when I said that He [the Spirit] will take the things that are Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you.

16In a little while you will no longer see Me, and again after a short while you will see Me.

Did you hear it? “In a little while”, to those people He was talking to face to face, mouth to mouth, “you will not see me again.” But in a little while again, I will re-appear. You will see Me again. This is because He liveth forever. He liveth forever and ever.

He said He will never depart till the end of the world. Has the world ended? Alleluia! Rather, the world is about to end, for He has come to wrap up the programme. He has come to close the history. Amen.

17So some of His disciples questioned among themselves, What does He mean when He tells us, In a little while you will no longer see Me, and again after a short while you will see Me, and, Because I go to My Father?

18What does He mean by a little while? We do not know or understand what He is talking about.

19Jesus knew that they wanted to ask Him, so He said to them, Are you wondering and inquiring among yourselves what I meant when I said, In a little while you will no longer see Me, and again after a short while you will see Me?

20I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that you shall weep and grieve, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.

21A woman, when she gives birth to a child, has grief (anguish, agony) because her time has come. But when she has delivered the child, she no longer remembers her pain (trouble, anguish) because she is so glad that a man (a child, a human being) has been born into the world.

Remember, THE PAINS OF LABOUR AND THE JOY OF DELIVERY. Are we not all in labour pains? Are we not all in labour pains. Will the labour pains continue till eternity? Delivery must come one day.

It shall be one day known unto the LORD. One day, one day, we shall be free from the troubles of this world.

22So for the present you are also in sorrow (in distress and depressed); but I will see you again and [then] your hearts will rejoice, and no one can take from you your joy (gladness, delight).

23And when that time comes, you will ask nothing of Me [you will need to ask Me no questions]. I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that My Father will grant you whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM].

24Up to this time you have not asked a [single] thing in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete.

Ask and keep on asking. Did we consider it the other day? Knock and keep on knocking. Seek and keep on seeking.

25I have told you these things in parables (veiled language, allegories, dark sayings); the hour is now coming when I shall no longer speak to you in figures of speech, but I shall tell you about the Father in plain words and openly (without reserve).

26At that time you will ask (pray) in My Name; and I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf [for it will be unnecessary].

I decided to go through that length. Although it is not a part of the Teaching I lined up, but it has done something. Did you grasp anything in that Message? Amen.

Until I appeared on the scene, there was not even one of you that had the faith of Christ. You all were Moses’ disciples; and you were following the ministration of doom, death and disappointment. You did not know the way of life; you did not have the faith of Christ. Though you were mentioning Jesus, Jesus, the same way people mention His name today, and say, “Grace of God, Grace of God,” do they know the meaning? ON THAT DAY WHEN THEY WILL BE IN TROUBLE, THEY WILL CALL ON HIM EXPECTING HIM TO SAVE THEM. How can you call on a man you do not know? How can you call on Him you do not believe? But you (The Bride) know me. A little while, the world will see me no more, but you shall see Me for I will always be with you.

THE FAITH OF CHRIST IS MADE PERFECT IN LOVE [1]

I continue with the Message. Faith cometh by hearing, hearing the Word that proceeds from the lips of the Messiah in your day. True or false?

Now, let us go to Hebrews chapter 11 from verse 5 through 6, starting with Amplified version of the Bible. Pay attention. Remember I am talking about this Faith that will make you to pay attention to the Teaching. The teaching is not yet mentioned.

All that you have been hearing from morning till this hour, have I given you the topic? No topic! You might be wondering whether Daddy will continue on Faith. How can you believe when there is no Faith?

How can you believe somebody you do not know? How can you even believe somebody you have not yet admitted? How can you have Faith in somebody you do not even believe that he will defend you, answer your prayer and protect you?

You must know Him. You MUST have persistent Faith in Him. Unshakable Faith and not Faith that is temporary.

When something good happens, He becomes God. If He saves you from calamity, he becomes God, but a little while, he will become the devil. In a short while, He will become the devil.

Is that Faith persistent? It is erratic Faith. It does not save anybody. It does not save anybody. It is based on intellect. It is based on what? Feeling. It is based on instinct. It is based on imagination. Amen.

Hebrews 11:5 – 6 AMP. 5Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven, so that he did not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found,...

Because of what? FAITH. Enoch got translated. Enoch was translated that he did not see death. What are you waiting for? Is it not translation? Is it not translation?

What will translate you? I have not heard any response. What will translate you? FAITH. Faith established where?

Faith that is established in Christ. Faith established in the revealed Christ in your day. The Resurrected Body who had conquered death and got translated also came back, for your salvation. Oh No! I will read something to conclude it.

5Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven,...

Is it not an infallible evidence? Is it not a reliable evidence, what Faith did for Him? Faith established in Jehovah. And Jehovah is Christ, Who is alive forever more, Whose Voice you are hearing. Amen.

5Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven, so that he did not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found, because God had translated him.

For even before he was taken to heaven,...

Note the record. Note! Note! Note! Before he was translated, he received a testimony. God testified. Angels testified. Human beings around Him testified. Saints testified.

...he received testimony [still on record]... Still on record till today.

5Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven,so that he did not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found, because God had translated him.

Who translated Him? God!

For even before he was taken to heaven, he received testimony [still on record] that he had pleased and been satisfactory to God.

His conduct; His character. When you are writing the report of a student, there is always a remark concerning that student. The student maybe regularly taking the first position academically in the class, but the character is not good.

If the teacher is serious and sincere he/she will make a remark and tell the parents, “Although your son is brilliant, he is a criminal.” “Although your son is brilliant, he is a noise maker. He is a jester. He plays too much. He talks too much. He does not dress well. He lacks discipline.”

“Although he is brilliant and takes the first position in the classwork, please help look into his morals.” It is a remark. Am I making sense?

Remember that we have Him in person here, Who will write the testimony; Who will write our report. That is why the Bible said, “Do not grieve Him. Do not cause Him sorrow. Remember He is the One Who recommends you to Paradise.” He also recommends you to hell.

And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. [Ephesians 4:30 KJV]

That is the Personality you are having dealings with. He has the power. Absolute authority has been conferred on Him to let go anybody that meets His righteous demands. And to hold captive, anybody that did not meet it.

That is the Personality that is talking to you now. Hence, you are warned, “Be very sure you do not cause the Holy Spirit grief. Remember, He is the One that places a Seal upon you until the day of your redemption.”

He is the One that holds you in the hollow of His hands, only to deliver you in Paradise. Do not cause Him grief. Do not cause Him sorrow. Otherwise, you will regret in the end.

Watch! Enoch never grieved the Father. He was at peace with God, at peace with himself and at home with God. And He did everything before God satisfactorily and met the demands of God. That was the record. That was the remark, even till this day. 

Translation is REAL. I want to see somebody who will aim at this, for this is the only condition. This is the only condition, for Enoch never used the law. The law was not for Enoch.

Grace was what was given to him. And then, through Grace, his Faith was established in Jehovah. He had a persistent Faith; a persevering Faith; an overcoming Faith that overcame the world of his own day. Oh Glory be to God.

Am I making sense? Is this Teaching too hard? I hope it is sinking well. Even if it is too hard, I will continue, believing that by the time you go through it two times, you will understand it.

Remember, I am yet to enter into the Teaching for today. I am laying a foundation. And I have vowed within My soul that I will not come down until I give you the Teaching. Amen.

It is going to be brief. As brief as brief can be, if only you can understand this.

Hebrews 11:5 – 6 AMP.5Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven, so that he did not have a glimpse of death;...

What type of Faith? This is the Faith of God. The Faith of Christ. Christ was there before the world began. I myself have seen Him and I have heard Him speak. He is the Word of Eternal Life. Christ is the Message which we preach. True or false?

[1]Christ was alive when the world began, yet I myself have seen him with my own eyes and listened to him speak. I have touched him with my own hands. He is God’s message of life.

[2]This one who is life from God has been shown to us, and we guarantee that we have seen him; I am speaking of Christ, who is eternal Life. He was with the Father and then was shown to us. [1 John 1:1 – 2 LB]

And this is Christ here in our midst, looking for a man or a woman possessing this Faith. And He found none.

Then He revealed Himself, and started all over again, for it is through this Word of Faith that He can pick the lost sheep of Israel from the Gentiles and from the Jews, for we are going to be justified by this Faith. Did you get the Message?

You must be justified by your Faith. That is the Faith that is placed upon Christ. Amen. I do not know whether I am flying.

Having been justified by Faith, who will condemn you again? Who will find fault with you? You see, anything that is not done in accordance with your Faith, the Bible said it is sin.

Doing that which your Faith does not approve marks you out of God’s salvation. It marks you out of translation. Where is your Faith established? Who are you looking up to? Who are you looking up to?

Looking up to Christ, the Author and Finisher of our Faith. True or false? Looking unto Christ. Is Christ not here on earth?

Look unto Me all the ends of the earth, for I am the LORD. The God of your salvation. Besides Me there is no other, for I am your Saviour.

Look unto Him, the Author and Finisher of your Faith. You know what Author means. He that created the Faith in you, is He not the Author of your Faith?

He that gave you the Faith you are holding, is He not the Foundation of your Faith. If you go to the Pyramid, the first step is Faith. Who will conclude it? The same Personality. You must keep on following Him till the end.

He is the only One that knows the Road that leads to Paradise. My duty is to follow Him. Do not look sideways, for you have never gone this Way before.

You are a chosen people of God, a blessed people, sanctified, set apart for Him. What a wonderful privilege you are enjoying, having Him in person for your Teacher, for your Counselor, for your Guide and Instructor and as your Saviour, and creating unshakable Faith in you?

5Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven, so that he did not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found, because God had translated him.

For even before he was taken to heaven, he received testimony [still on record] that he had pleased and been satisfactory to God.

Was it when He died that they were testifying? The Lord bore witness for him when he was still alive. Did you get it?

SONG: [To be like my God. To be like my God. On earth I long to be like Him. All through life’s journey from earth to Glory, on earth I long to be like Him.]

You see, he desired to be like God here on earth, established persistent Faith on the solid Rock. And he was not disappointed. What happened? He was translated. He never saw death. And he never saw corruption. Amen.

6But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. What? For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].

I will go back to Romans chapter 10 again from verse 17 using Amplified. 17So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself).

18But I ask, Have they not heard? But I ask a question. Have they not been hearing Me all these years? Why is it that Faith has not been established to believe that I am He?

Why has it been very difficult for them to believe that I proceeded from the Father? Why have they not believed that the Father is in Me and that I am in the Father?

Why can they not believe that the things I do, I do them not of My own power or authority, but it is the Father dwelling in Me that is doing all these things. Hence I give Him the whole Glory. Why is it so?

Could it be that they have not been hearing and that is the reason they have not been believing? You can hear with the ears but you do not believe.

The manifestation is always the interpretation. Have I not manifested all the attributes of the deity? Why are they not believing? Why can they not have that Faith? Yet, they are expecting translation.

There is no miracle except the Miracle of your Faith. Not My own Faith, but your Faith. You must have your own record. I must have My own record.

And Allah, Whom we are having dealings with, is swift in taking records. God has the testimony of everybody here. So, do not ever think that God is joking. God is not joking. He knows all your records. He knows what He will put down as His remarks concerning you.

When Jacob made his remarks concerning his children, did anybody cancel it? He knew all. He knew all.

Moses knew the wife. Moses knew the record of the wife. True or false.

All Prophets of God; all messengers of God knew the records of their wives. Zachariah knew the record of his wife. Joseph knew the record of his wife. Solomon knew the record of all his wives. And they were documented in the Holy Scriptures either for or against them.

Pay attention. I am still asking this question. HAVE THEY NOT HEARD THE SON OF MAN SPEAKING?

Indeed they have;... Indeed, they have heard. They have been hearing. They will continue to hear.

18But I ask, Have they not heard? Have they not heard that He that created the Heavens and the earth is here in human form? Have they not seen? Have they not heard with their ears? Have they not seen Him? Have they not handled Him?

Are they not living witnesses of the supernatural manifestations of the Elohim? Have they not been hearing the Word and proving the Word?

That is why, the first thing He will do is to indict them of unbelief, for they have not believed in Him. If they did not believe in Him that time, is it this time that they will believe.

Known unto Him are all His works from the Foundation of the world. He knows those that are believing in Him. He knows those that are paying lip service. He knows the mission of everybody in the Bridal Faith. Amen.

So, whatever you like to display, display. Whatever you want to talk, talk. No matter the way you look at Him, He is what He is.

The only Messenger that has come after Jesus Christ and declared Himself as I AM and declared Himself the Almighty and the Almighty confirmed it.

He came last, when all those phonies had already come and messed up the whole world. At last, the STILL SMALL VOICE came out from A SMALL HANDPICKED MINORITY He is selecting and gathered as a little group.

And then, from that small minority, THE STILL SMALL VOICE started coming out. And today, we have seen where the Voice is. We have seen the extent the Voice has reached. The Voice has encircled the whole world; the whole earth as a judgment against them.

It can be a judgment against you if you do not understand and believe in Him. That is why, from time to time, He will ask the question, “Understandeth thou this? Are you still a part of the world that do not know Me? For they are not waiting for Him”

Even if they see Him, they will not recognize Him. And then, he is not for them. He came for His own. He is looking for His own.

When He was praying, He prayed for His own. He did not pray for the world. Are you His own? Get Him convinced.

For that reason, I am in the fore front of the race with you, for a true leader stays in front. If I had been somewhere pointing you to this road, you have reasons to doubt Me, but because I am in the front absorbing all the shocks, the whole discouragement has been on Me, the whole scandal, mockery blasphemy, hatred, every kind of thing has been on Me for your sake and for the sake of Christ, still none of these things can ever deter Me for I see them as a mark of My calling in Christ. I am poised to fulfilling this Ministry God has committed into My hands and end it in joy. I know how to keep you in your sanctified estate. .....

THE FAITH OF CHRIST IS MADE PERFECT IN LOVE [2]

But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have;... Indeed, they have heard. They have seen. With their mouths, they say they believe, but with their hearts, they do not believe, for if they believe with their hearts and confess with their mouths, they will be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. [Romans 10:10 KJV]

Is it not true? If you can believe with your heart and confess with your mouth, that THE SON OF MAN is the LORD, surely, you are in Paradise with Him.

But where you have not believed in your heart, to confess with your mouth will be very difficult. Even when you confess with your mouth, your heart will say, “Do not!”

It is like the Holy Quran said, “When they come into the midst of God’s children, they will say they are with them and that they believe in the Prophet, but when they leave the place, and they meet with their folks, they will change their confession, “Do not mind them. How will they think we can believe this nonsense?””

[13]When it is said to them: "Believe as the others believe:" They say: "Shall we believe as the fools believe?" Nay, of a surety they are the fools, but they do not know. [14]When they meet those who believe, they say: "We believe;" but when they are alone with their evil ones, they say: "We are really with you: We (were) only jesting."[Surah 2:13-14, Abdullah Yusuf Ali Translation]

For the revelation of who God is sounds as nonsense to those that are on their way to destruction. They can never have persistent Faith; persevering Faith.

THEY CANNOT HAVE PERSEVERING LOVE; PERSEVERING LOVE THAT OVERCOMETH THE WORLD, FOR LOVE AND FAITH ARE ONE.

IT STARTS FROM FAITH. IT ENDS IN LOVE. THE END-PRODUCT OF FAITH IS LOVE BECAUSE IT IS IN LOVE THAT FAITH IS MADE PERFECT. AMEN. THE FAITH OF CHRIST IS MADE PERFECT IN LOVE.

I hope I am not too harsh or taking it too high.

18But I ask, Have they not heard? Indeed they have;... They have heard. The Words that have been proceeding from the lips of the Messiah, Christ revealed. Christ is the mystery of God revealed, and He is identified by His characteristics.

That is why, once you believe in Him, your attitude towards Him MUST change. Nobody will compel you to obey. Nobody will force you to listen. Before He says it, you are already doing it. Is it not true? Thank you.

That is the only thinG that terminated reasoning. Faith terminates reasoning. Faith terminates doubt which is the product of reasoning. Faith terminates instinct. Faith terminates feeling. Faith terminates intellect. Faith terminates imagination. True or false?

Where there is Faith, there is no argument. I say, Faith terminates argument. Is it not imagination that brings about argument? From premonitions, argument will arise. From presumptions, argument will arise. From suspicion, argument will arise.

But in Christ, Faith in Christ terminates argument.

SONG: [I need no other argument. I need no other plea. It is enough that Saviour came and that He came for Me.

My heart has found a resting place, not in device nor creed. My heart is leaning on the Word. The Spoken Word of God.

I need no other argument. I need no other plea. It is enough that Saviour came and He is here for Me]

It is enough that My Saviour has come, and He is here for Me. I do not know about you. I do not need any other argument. I do not need anybody to plead with Me to believe or not to believe. I am sure and certain. I am grossly convinced. No shaking!

18But I ask, Have they not heard? But I ask, “Why are they behaving the way they are behaving?” Is it because they have not been hearing from Me? is it because they have not been believing Me?

18But I ask, Have they not heard? Indeed they have; [for the Scripture says] Their voice [that of nature bearing God's message] has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the far bounds of the world.

19Again I ask, Did Israel not understand? [Did the Jews have no warning that the Gospel was to go forth to the Gentiles, to all the earth?]

Were they not warned ahead of time that this Gospel must, at last, go back to the Gentiles and to the ends of the earth? It will take somebody from God to carry it to the Gentiles and to the ends of the earth.

Were they not told ahead of time? In the Book of Saint Matthew chapter 24, it said, “This Gospel of the Kingdom MUST be preached throughout the entire earth. And then, the end shall come.”

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. [Matthew 24:14 KJV]

Simply because they did not believe. Pay attention. Simply because he asked them a question, “How can they have Faith in the One whom they have not received. You have not welcomed Him.” They are looking at Him as an impersonator. They do not even know Him.

First, there is Moses who says, I will make you jealous of those who are not a nation; with a foolish nation I will make you angry.

20Then Isaiah is so bold as to say, I have been found by those who did not seek Me;... Alleluia! I have shown (revealed) Myself to those who did not [consciously] ask for Me.

I have shown and revealed Myself, the Deity to those [a people] who did not for one day, consciously asked for Me.

21But of Israel he says, All day long I have stretched out My hands to a people unyielding and disobedient and self-willed...You might be the person here. You might be having that nature, but you do not know.

21But of Israel he says, All day long I have stretched out My hands to a people unyielding and disobedient and self-willed...

They are unyielding to the truth; disobedient to the truth. Why? They are self-willed. They have already made up their minds how they are going to live their life, what they will believe and what they will not believe.

I do not want anybody to doze while I am standing, till I leave here. I am serious about it. I know I have been passing sleepless nights, for three days running now, because I have been on a drug that has been affecting My health adversely, though it is doing a good work.

This is the first time I have been instructed to take a drug using milk as water. That will tell you that it must be a very strong drug. It might be corrosive. All for your sake.

I stake My life here to make sure you hear the Truth that will transform your lives, and create Faith that will be persistent in you that you might be translated.

What are we waiting for now? Is it not translation? Is it the hour when you should be dozing? The only thing that is left in the Bride for God to fulfill is the translation of our mortal bodies.

There is no other atrocity you are expecting to see. You have seen fire. You have seen flood. You have seen earthquake. You have seen war.  You have seen rioting. You have seen lawlessness.  Tell Me what you have not seen.

Only one thing remaineth. God is saying that you are going to be saved during troublous times. What type of trouble are you expecting? Are we not in troublous times? What if He says it is over today? Would you not be glad?

That is why Faith cometh by hearing. You cannot develop Faith when you are sleeping. If you are dozing and sleeping, it shows lack of seriousness and lack of consciousness.

All day long... I have been talking for 28 years now; day and night, going without food. Even when I am at the point of death, I have never ceased from talking. I have never ceased from working in the Bride.

Do you know that you will receive the greatest condemnation if you spurn this Gospel truth that has come to you, which the world cannot receive, with God singling you out of the world to be His own that He might take you to Paradise? And you spurn it? Spurn Grace? Spurn the law?

Oh No! You spurn the Word of THE SON OF MAN, where lies your hope of eternal life.

If the foundation of the Teaching wearies you down, it then means you are not qualified for the Teaching. If I see only one person who has the Faith that is in Me, I will continue with this Teaching.

All day long, I have stretched out My hands to a people unyielding and disobedient...

Have I not been doing that? Stretching out My hands to receive and to welcome and to save, for the hand of God is not so short that it cannot save you. Neither are His ears closed that he cannot hear your prayers.

But iniquity [unbelief] that is dwelling in you is creating enmity and is making you to distance God. Distance God and distance yourself from God’s salvation. You can be lying in the bed with God, but you are distanced from Him, for He is the Sovereign Spirit. You are not at home with Him until the Spirit is one. I will show you what happened.

All day long, day and night, you that are in this Family, have I not been teaching morning and night? Even in your private hours, I bring you closer. I talk to you in the kitchen. I talk to you in the parlour. I talk to you everywhere! If you perish, who will you blame?

What have I been aiming at? To create the Faith of translation in you. William Branham called it rapturing Faith. For THE SON OF MAN knows what it takes to inject rapturing Faith in the Bride. Somebody must put that Faith in you. Amen.

Saint Paul said, “I have come to give Faith.” Is it not true? I have come to give Faith to those who are ready to believe My Word. It is not ordinary Faith, but the Faith that changes their lives for the better, if only they will believe in Me.

[22]And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. So don’t fool yourselves. [James 1:22 LB]

All day long, I have stretched out My hands to a people unyielding and disobedient and self-willed [to a faultfinding,...

I have stretched out my hands to a faultfinding people. Instead of believing God, they are constantly finding faults with God and finding faults with the Message. Why?

They are self-opinionated, self-willed, leaning on their own understanding and refusing to lean their entire personality on God. Yet, they are expecting to be translated.

Was it so with Enoch? Was it so with Elijah? Was it so with the Lord Jesus Christ?

All day long, I have stretched out My hands to a people unyielding and disobedient and self-willed [to a faultfinding,contrary, and contradicting people].

Contrary and contradicting human beings. People that take delight in walking contrary. People that take delight in contradicting God, contradicting His mission and contradicting His Words.

What brings about contradiction? Is it not reasoning? Is it not intellect? Is it not feeling? Is it not instinct? Is it not imagination, because it does not go the way you want?

You want to promote your self-esteem, but God is saying No! You want to over-protect your self-ego, but God is saying No! You want to push yourself forward, and God is saying No, for in everything, God must be allowed to have the pre-eminence.

In everything! Everything means everything. Is that not scriptural?

17and he is before all things, and by him all things consist: 18and he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. [Colossians 1:17 – 18 KJV]

Has God ever taken preeminence in your everything? Has he become your final of all finals? Has there been any time the Word of God became your final bus stop?

I conveyed a Message to a Sister over her inadequacies and self-willed nature which has become a very big scandal, and she distanced Me, stopped calling Me.

And I am feeling very happy for it is My testimony concerning her, that she hates the truth and she does not want to repent, for if she had known the Personality that took time to call her, she would have known that it is the highest manifestation of love.

THE HIGHEST MANIFESTATION OF LOVE ANYBODY SHOULD EXPECT FROM GOD IS TO SHOW YOU WHERE YOU ARE ERRING, AND DIRECT YOU TO THE RIGHT PATH, FOR GOD CAN NEVER SHOW A MAN’S FAULT TO HIM WITHOUT SHOWING HIM A BETTER WAY TO DO IT.

That is how we know God. Anytime the Almighty God is condemning your action, he will also show you a better way of living. But will man accept?

You see the condemnation. This is why many are called and few are chosen. They love contradicting God. That is man’s work. Man is full of misconception. Always misconstruing God’s statements.

When God said, “What if I will that John will not see death or that John will not die”, they went about contradicting Him, “Can you imagine? So we have wasted our time. He said that John will not die again.” Was it what He said?

22Jesus said to him, If I want him to stay (survive, live) until I come, what is that to you? [What concern is it of yours?] You follow Me! 23So word went out among the brethren that this disciple was not going to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not going to die, but, If I want him to stay (survive, live) till I come, what is that to you? [John 21:22 – 23 AMP]

I am coming to the real Message proper. If you have grown weak because of the introduction, how and what will you be when the Message will come forth.

All along, I have been talking without giving it a title. And I have My reasons. The title is about to come. But before then, let us search Scriptures. Let us search Scriptures.

As far as salvation is concerned, the Message THE SON OF MAN handles is “Whether you like it or not.” A must. M-U-S-T. This one is not believe it if you can, unless you do not want salvation. Once you want salvation, you want eternal life, it is a must. M-U-S-T. We do not negotiate it. …… The Elects of God that sinned in former times, He did not punish. He reserved them pending the revelation of Christ. They are all waiting at the gate where we are all waiting.

O MAN, WHERE ARE YOU? [1]

Get me Amplified Bible and Living Bible. Let us use those two to shorten the time because if I insist on reading all, I may take you longer than you will bear. Teaching makes us strong. Teaching makes us strong.

Last Sunday, I hammered on the greatest equipment and instruments the devil uses to destroy the whole world. I touched on them, giving them many subheads which I have not yet explained.

But from morning till now, I believe I have touched on many. I have arrested almost all of them, using one Word; F-A-I-T-H and showing you what Faith is all about and where it comes from, for Faith is not abstract. Faith is not abstract. Faith is real. Faith demonstrates itself. Did you get the Message?

Faith made an outing in Enoch. Was that not enough outing? Was it not an infallible, convincing and unquestionable demonstration of Faith? And Faith is about to make the last outing.

Since you know that anything that is not done by Faith is of the devil and devilish, and without this Faith you can never do anything that is pleasing to God, then have I not revealed the secret of finding favour with God?

If God is with you, it is because you are doing those things that are pleasing to Him. If He is displeased with you, it shows that you are not doing those things that are pleasing to Him.

Rather, you have come all out to challenge Him, to find fault with Him, and to have your way. You are struggling self-willed and you have vowed never to make a U-turn. You will never change. You will never reposition yourself no matter who will say it.

Then, with religion, you are going to be humiliated with the heathens in hellfire. You will be humiliated in this judgment that is going on now, for if you do not believe that I am HE, you will never believe that what I am saying is enough to take you to Paradise. Amen.

If you do not have Faith, how will you know the strength that Faith possesses? If you do not drink liquor, you will not know that liquor intoxicates.

You will not know that liquor can make a man worse than a mad man. You can only know because you have taken it. It is in you. Did you get the Message?

If you do not possess Faith, [possessing the Faith of Christ]; If you do not possess the Faith of Christ, you cannot experience its power to deliver, to defend, to save, and to translate the mortal body.

When you have this Faith in Christ, you have it and possess it; you can then stand up and say, “I can do all things through Christ that has strengthened me.” By Faith, all the patriarchs were victorious in all their ways, including women.

If you read that Hebrews 11, you will see the records of women who were women of Faith that developed their lives for Christ, both in the Old and the New Testaments. They did exploits. Amen.

Through Faith also Sarah herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged Him Faithful who had promised.

By Faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace. .......

Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: [Hebrews 11:11, 31, 35 KJV]

Remember, I am battling spirits; destroying spirits that are operating in human beings making it impossible for them to develop persistent Faith in Christ. Abiding Faith.

Now turn with Me to the Book of Genesis. Let us see where the whole trouble started. Get Me Good News Bible written in today’s English. I will also use Living Bible and Amplified, if time permits.

Genesis 3:1 – 13 GNB. I am taking My emphasis from verse 9. 1Now the snake was the most cunning animal that the Lord God had made.

Note the word “CUNNING.” I know the snake was a human being. Snake was a figure. Can you not see snakes? Snake is a figure of speech.

If I call you a green snake in a green grass, do you not know what I am calling you? I am calling you a cunning man. A cunning fellow.

Snake! When you look at it, it looks harmless, but very poisonous and very destructive. In appearance, harmless. Brethren, when you see the way a snake is moving on the ground, can you believe that it is very dangerous to man?

You will think that it is a belt which is good to be worn with your dress, but it is very destructive. Do we have such people? Good! So, when I say snake, understand that it is an encounter between a man and a woman. And that man has become a figurative snake; a cunning fellow

The snake asked the woman,... Note! “The snake asked the woman.” Does a snake talk? Of all the punishment that God meted to Satan that time, check. There was no day God said, “From today you will become dumb.” Note it! It is not there.

The snake asked the woman, “Did God really tell you not to eat fruit from any tree in the garden?"

Watch! This snake may be in your brain. It may be in your associate physically. It may be your companion. “Why are you distancing Me? Has your God told you to forsake me? Has your God told you not to salute me? Has your God told you not to have anything to do with me again?

This is because Satan will not allow you to have rest. He will always be querying you whenever you want to do the will of God. Am I making sense?

If the fellow is one you are enjoying friendship with and God knows that the friendship will put you into trouble, and He instructs you to abandon the friendship and you agree, as soon as you abandon the relationship, when the fellow looks for you and does not see you, because of what the fellow is benefitting from the friendship, he will tell you, “Why have you run away. Did THE SON OF MAN instruct you not to come to my house again? Has this God you people worship spoken to you? You are behaving like someone who was told something. Why are you constantly drawing back? Is this the way we are going to break up?”

Brethren, is there truth in what I am saying? Who is querying? The devil, using a human being. What is he trying to inject in you?

“Cast your mind back to see how we have been faring all these years. See how we have been together all these years consider the benefits you have been getting from our association and what you have been realizing.”

From there, you will begin to check, “If I will leave him; If I will leave her, who will feel the gap? What will I be eating? What will I be drinking? Who will supply me money? Who will I be sleeping with, this and that?”

Can you imagine? Before you know it, stammering will come, “It is not like that. That is the way I want it for now. In short, I am confused. I am not myself.”

Can you believe? The person is unyielding to the Word of God. And Faith can never come there. He is unyielding and disobedient; flagrantly disobedient.

LIBERATION DOES NOT COUNT THE COST. WHENEVER A MAN IS ABOUT TO BE LIBERATED FROM THE HAND OF THE DEVIL, DOES HE COUNT THE COST? IF YOU COUNT THE COST, YOU WILL REMAIN IN EGYPT. YOU WILL REMAIN IN EGYPT.

A MAN THAT IS ABOUT TO BE LIBERATED FROM BONDAGE WILL ONLY COUNT ON THE GAINS OF LIBERTY AND NOT ON THE LOSS OF CAPTIVITY, FOR YOU CAN NEVER BE IN CAPTIVITY WITHOUT LOSING SOMETHING.

[1] You lose self-esteem. That one is clear. [2] You lose your vision about life. You will be living a life where somebody will be tele-guiding all your activities. You become a slave to all forces.

That is why I gave the Message, LOOSE THE COLT. Loose the colt. The colt will only be loose, if it is desiring to be leave and to go. Amen.

1Now the snake was the most cunning animal that the Lord God had made.

Give ear everybody as we look into the dictionary to know the many meanings of CUNNING.

Meaning of CUNNING: www.yourdictionary.com: Sly, Crafty, Clever in surreptitious behaviour. You are clever, for you have the surreptitious eyes of an old man with which to pervert the truth. The disposition of “Does it matter?”

When an individual employs all these spirits, and uses it on somebody, will that person escape? These are demons he is invading one individual with. It is almost impossible to escape from such a person.

You see why it takes Christ to Come and liberate that person. If the Almighty God does not come to liberate that person, the myriads or evil spirits and demons must destroy him. True or false.

That is why it is said to an individual that the demons in him are too many and uncountable. The fault is not his. Education cannot save you from that. You may be a graduate but it will not save you from that devil.

See the great number of graduates that are roaming the streets, possessed with many evil spirits. Is it a lie Brethren? Do you think they want to be that way? They do not want to be that way, but the way out, they know it not.

If you attempt to take them in for rehabilitation, they will run away from you, for the devil in them will tell them to run away, “They have come again!”

Do you think it is easy for the devil to surrender somebody he is holding to God? Do you think it is easy for the devil to surrender the person he is holding captive?

The devil is overpowered before his captive is freed. You have to break the house and break everything to pieces someone who is a captive to the devil.

Does the devil’s captive even know that he or she is in the captivity of the devil? One who is held captive by the devil does not even know about it.

Before the person realizes it, a great havoc would have been done in the individual’s life. The person must have grown too old and has become useless to himself and to the entire society.

By then, it will be too late. The devil will then release him and the person will be totally useless.

Nobody has ever entered Paradise from Adam till today. All of us are entering the same day. HE THAT WILL OPEN IT IS HERE. Nobody has ever entered until now. That is why the Bible said, “Although they fought gallantly for the Faith of Christ, without us they are not made perfect.” For they were looking for salvation through their own works, BUT GOD WILL JUSTIFY EVERYBODY ACCORDING TO THE FAITH THAT IS IN ME, WHICH IS THE FAITH OF CHRIST. No more, no less.

O MAN, WHERE ARE YOU? [2]

MEANING OF CUNNUNG: www.urbandictionary.com: A word used to describe someone or sometimes something that is tricky devious, sly or shady.

www.merriam-webster.com: Characterized by wiliness or trickery.

www.lexico.com: [1] Having or showing skill in achieving one’s ends by deceit or evasion. [2] Skills in achieving one’s ends by deceit.

Remember we are trying to know the meaning of the word God used to describe the “SNAKE”; the “SERPENT”. The characteristic nature of a serpent. You see the type of powers he possesses.

That is why we say that the devil has only come to kill, to destroy, to steal and to carry away. Christ has come that we may have life and have it more abundantly.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. [John 10:10 KJV]

Roman Catholic religion and teaching said, “What is the aim of the devil?” They answered and said that the devil came to kill, to steal and to destroy and also to put us into sin. That is the mission of the devil.

This is because the devil is sin personified. Is it not true? Satan is sin personified.

That is why, whoever that is walking according to the dictates of the devil has become devil’s incarnate. If you walk according to the dictates of Christ, you become Christ’s incarnate. Whose incarnate are you?

Any spirit you yield yourself to obey, is the spirit that will govern your life, either the spirit of Christ to righteousness [right living, right standing with God] or to the spirits of the devil, which will always lead you to opposition, contradiction, misconception and misinterpretation of every God’s Word, every God’s move and every God’s intention. Amen.

1Now the snake was the most cunning animal that the Lord God had made. The snake asked the woman, "Did God really tell you not to eat fruit from any tree in the garden?"

2"We may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden," the woman answered, 3"except the tree in the middle of it. God told us not to eat the fruit of that tree or even touch it; if we do, we will die."

4The snake replied, "That's not true; you will not die.

Has he [the devil] not countered it? Has he not countered it? “Do not believe that nonsense. Do not believe that man”

This is because He is God’s enemy. Did you get it? He has carried the enmity he has for God to that woman when the husband was away. “And you believe that nonsense. Do not ever subscribe to that notion. You will never die.”

Whatever that has countered the Word of God in you, has it come to set you free? Can that thing make you to look like God? Can that person allow you to be translated? The person is nullifying your Faith which you have already established in God.

That is why you do not listen to anything that contradicts the truth which God has evidently set out before you, handed it over to you and you know the Source. What is that Jupiter that will come into you tomorrow?

That is why sometimes, when I look at somebody, I say, “My friend, what has come over you that you cannot continue in the truth that I have given to you, which God has already confirmed with many signs and wonders vindicating in diverse forms. This life you want to live now, is that where you think you will get life more abundantly?”

This new life that you now want to indulge in, is that where life lies? Do you know what you are doing? Do you know where it is leading you to?

One day, you will come to your senses and you will use lantern to search for THE SON OF MAN, THE FOUNTAIN OF TRUTH, but you will never see Him again.

And nobody has received this statement from Me without seeing the result while he or she is here. There is nobody who THE SON OF MAN has ever told that he or she will search for THE SON OF MAN with lantern that never witnessed the fulfillment.

4The snake replied, "That's not true; you will not die.5God said that because he knows that when you eat it, you will be like God...

Has he not contradicted the Truth? Has he not misinterpreted it deliberately because he wants to achieve an aim? What is the aim? To seduce the woman away from the truth and espouse the woman to falsehood.

5God said that because he knows that when you eat it, you will be like God and know what is good and what is bad."

6The woman saw how beautiful the tree was... Note! The woman did what? She saw how beautiful the tree was. Has she not been seeing it all the while? ...and how good its fruit would be to eat, and she thought how wonderful it would be to become wise. Have you seen what is happening? Intellect, mentality, feeling, imagination, instinct has started working now.

So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, and he also ate it.

7As soon as they had eaten it, they were given understanding and realized that they were naked;... Have you seen it?...so they sewed fig leaves together and covered themselves.

8That evening they heard the Lord God walking in the garden,... Not another day! That selfsame day, the LORD appeared as He is used to, in the cool of the evening. They heard His footsteps.

...and they hid from him among the trees. When you commit iniquity against God, you distance yourself from Him. When you do that which you are not supposed to do, the moment you realize that you erred, your heart will smite you. And the moment your heart smites you, you will distance yourself from God.

9But the Lord God called out to the man, "Where are you?" Man! Where are you? Woman! Where are you? Man! Where are you? Woman! Where are you? It demands an answer. Today, God is still asking Me, “Man, where are you?” And God is also asking you, “Man, where are you?”

My wife is the only woman here. Woman, where are you? You are representing the womenfolk worldwide, while we are representing the menfolk worldwide. True or false?

Where are you? Where am I? A big question. You must be somewhere. I must be somewhere.

WHEREVER THE SPIRIT OF A MAN IS, THERE HE IS. WHEREVER THE SPIRIT OF A WOMAN IS, THERE HE IS. WHEREVER THE SPIRIT OF A HUMAN BEING IS, THERE THE PERSON IS. WHERE ARE YOU? AND WHY ARE YOU THERE.

They heard the Voice of the Master. They ran away and hid themselves. He asked, “Man, where are you and why are you there? Have you been there all this while? Where are you? What put you there? You want to cover up? That thing you are using as a cover up, does it cover you?”

That thing you formed with your hands, knit it together and it is good for you in your eyes, did it give you a covering? Was it enough to put you in right standing with Me?

That covering; that excuse, “The devil did this thing”, is it enough to restore you in Fellowship with Me?

IT IS EASIER TO LOSE FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD THAN TO RESTORE FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD. IT IS EASIER TO LOSE FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD THAN TO RESTORE FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD, FOR YOU CANNOT RESTORE FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD UNTIL BLOOD IS SPILT. LIFE MUST BE LOST BEFORE FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD IS RESTORED.

That is why, in other to restore Fellowship, which animal blood could not restore, God came and then presented Himself in the form of Jesus for blood must be spilt, for where there is no shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin.

I am coming to something. It is not what I am preaching. Man, where are you? Woman, where are you?

I am going to give it a topic because I now want to take off. Man, where are you? Woman, where are you? Are you in Christ or are you in the devil? If I should look for you, where will I find you?

Will I find you in Christ or in the devil? Where is your heart? Where is your mind? The spirit that is in you, where is it? Where is it resting even right now? Where is your spirit even right now?

While you are hearing Me, you may be hearing with your ears when your spirit is far. They were hearing from Moses, but their spirits were in Egypt.

Where is your mind? Where is your spirit? Is it in Christ or in the world? Is it in your school while I am talking? Is it in your proposed trip while I am talking? Is it in your business? Is it in your plans which you have already outlined for yourself of which you do not know whether you will live, stay alive and enjoy them or not?

This is because your life can terminate even today. Even now. This is because you may know all things, but you do not know what will happen the next minute or the next second.

We went to bury the dead, but if not divine intervention, we would have gone home with a corpse. Bro Eli, is it not true? [Bro Eli responded, “It is true.”]

If not divine intervention, Brethren from Enugu would have carried a corpse home, but God said, “This will be a great blasphemy from among the heathens.”

That THE SON OF MAN is talking about the resurrection and the life, from among them, somebody who was eating dropped down and died.

And a so called Pastor for that matter, who is not in right standing with THE SON OF MAN and who was already rebuked twice in the same place. And a fellow Pastor called him and warned him to steer clear from THE SON OF MAN.

In the same way I warned a Bishop; Bishop emeritus, who is ready to die, but he wants to hang on somebody. I have warned him several times. And any moment from now, if he provokes Me again, I will beat a drum he cannot dance. I have given him My last warning.

I am putting it in tape so that the whole world will hear Me. I hate eye service. I do not delight Myself in eye service.
