FINAL ADORNMENT OF THE BRIDE Vol.1

 Preached On 10th July, 2020 @ Pastor Melchizedek’s House during Friday Worship, Abakiliki Household of God, Ebonyi State, Nigeria By Pastor Melchizedek Approved and Authorized by Apostle Peter Odoemena The Son of Man

The Greatest Legend of our Time

AS LONG AS UNBELIEF REMAINETH IN THE CHURCH GOD MUST NEVER CLOSE HIS MOUTH. WHERE SOMEBODY IS TALKING TOO MUCH, SOMEBODY THAT IS DOING SOMETHING TOO MUCH IS ALSO THERE. HAVEN’T WE SEEN THE LEVEL OF UNBELIEF STARTING FROM THE

PASTOR DOWN TO THE

LOWEST PERSON IN THE CHURCH? BOTH THE PROPHET, THE PRIEST, EVERYBODY IN UNBELIEF, ATTRIBUTING GOD’S DOING TO HUMAN BEINGS. IF THERE IS ANY GREATEST SIN THAT SOMEBODY CAN SAY, IT IS UNBELIEF. 

Obedience Is Better than Sacrifice Preached On 29th July 1994; page 35:8

GOD TAKES DELIGHT IN US OBEYING HIS WORD

Remain blessed brethren, you are welcome to his presence this evening. I think the most important place to be in life is in the presence of God. That is why there is nothing to be compared to being in the presence of God.

I am so happy to be in his presence. Are you happy? Yes Sir! It is only a fool that will not be happy in the presence of God. I was listening to the radio and somebody said: “We should be happy that we are alive”. You are talking of COVID - 19, this and that, you should be happy that today you are alive. 

Many people did not have the opportunity to be alive, stop complaining instead give God the glory. Thank God for today that you are alive. Thank God for what is going on in the world; that uptill now nothing has affected you, so stop complaining instead there is need for us to start thanking God".

Yes that is truth. The Almighty God said the other time that it looks like the people who are in one way or the other, who have infirmities in their body praise God better than those who are complete health wise. That is truth!

You see,  it is when we have our health complete that we worry ourselves too much; we keep God aside, but when problem comes we remember God,  We run to God. But when the going is good nobody remembers God. Once you come closer to God and God answers your prayer, you fly away.

You only come closer to God when you are in need, when you are in difficulty that you start screaming, you start calling on God. It is not good!

To the children of God, everyday should be a Revival in our Lives. Every second there should be a revival because the presence of God is a fountain; a fountain filled with the spoken word that flows from the throne of God. If that fountain is in my heart, in your heart, there will be revival on a daily basics.

 There should be revival in my heart, there should be revival in your heart. This revival should be something that is continual because we are moving higher everyday as we are being led by The Son of Man.

God has never left us, He has never kept us in the dark. Look at the messages He releases these days. Look at Him going back; evolving, showing us things, that if we do not take it serious there will be problem on our road as we wait at the gate.

Everyday, He never ceases from touching messages, giving us all we need to put ourselves through. To be in-line in this period we found ourselves.

Why is He doing this? It is because we have really come to the end of the journey. He is giving us finishing touches, He is doing the finishing touches. It is left for us to realize that it is left for me and you to have the revelation of what the Almighty is doing in the Bride.

Look at it! I think He is about to celebrate his 65years. Naturally as a human being, He has lived up to 65years of age. In other words our father in the flesh is getting to 70years. Is it not true? Ordinarily, a man who has laboured; worked for 65years as a matter of fact should relax.

His children now are supposed to relief his burden. Is not it so? Naturally He has laboured up to 65years in the flesh, we are around him, and as the heavenly bound angels, and we ought to be burden Relievers. We ought to relief his burden.

How do we relief his burden? Do not look at it in a natural way, that we should be buying food, buying cloth, and sending money (paying Him homage). Yes! There is nothing wrong about that if we should be a relief in conduct, and in behaviour to his instructions, and to his words. We should be a relief.

For nothing makes the heart of a man merry than to hear that the children are faring well. Wherever the children are, he is receiving good report that the children are doing very well.

Did you hear David? Immediately David heard that one of his sons had slaughtered the rest of his sons, He fell on the ground. Was it not so? Because it was a character that was not supposed to be heard.

Even Job, when he heard what happened to his children he tore his cloth.  So ,  nothing makes the heart of a man happy than  to  hear that the children are faring well, rather than hearing evil reports coming up on daily bases concerning his children. 

Everyday He wakes up early in the morning, the next is to sit down in settling cases, cases upon cases. We are human beings now, we are not senseless.

That ordinarily what we are supposed to handle. We are bombarding him with them which could be family issues, hence not giving him breathing space so that He could face his commission.

We are silencing his commission because on daily basics He faces family issues instead of facing His commission which is giving us all that is required of us to get to where we are going to.

For us to be ready, and waiting for the body (that theophany body) since we have come to the end. Except any of us who has not realized that indeed we have come to the end.

 I Believe we have come to the end. He told us we have come to the end. He made it clearer for us to understand that we have come to the end.  At this end we are, we should be mature enough to know what will make our father happy not what our father will hear about us and develop heart break.

Naturally, we are trying to force our father to his early grave. Everyday, evil reports from left and right meaning that we are ready to force him to his early grave but that will not be our portion and that will not be his portion. So, tonight we actually want to look at something, to see how far we can go tonight knowing we have no time.

Let's look at what God said in this message "AS I THOUGHT ON MY WAYS, VOL 2. PREACHED ON 24TH DECEMBER, 2000. PG. 39 VS 17. This will really guide us to the introduction of what we have at hand.  

"I THANK GOD THAT THE BRIDE HAD ALREADY ARRIVED AND SHE IS SITTING WHERE THE LORD SAID SHE MUST SIT" We are sitting where the Lord said we should sit. We are waiting at the right place, at the gate where God commanded that we should wait.

If we are waiting at the right place, it is not over, we should be there waiting, we should be there sitting, and being guided by his instructions. That is all we need.

"BEING PLACED IN THE WILDERNESS WHERE SHE WILL BE NURTURED WELL - WHILE WAITING  FOR THE PROMISE OF THE HOUR ". Being placed where? In the Wilderness! What is the essence of placing the bride in the wilderness? So that she will be nurtured very well while we are waiting for the promise. To God Be the Glory.

We are in the right place where we are being nurtured very well, God giving us what it takes on daily basics. In other words, God is supplying us our spiritual balanced diet.

God is giving us what? Spiritual balanced diet. For human being to grow according to Food scientists, you must eat balanced diet. That is what God is feeding us with, for that is what the Bride needs at the point where we are now.

I don't know if anybody will accuse God for having and not given us what we need? He is there on a daily basics feeding us, giving us what it takes for us to survive.

In the message "I AM THE CHIEF INSTRUCTOR PREACHED ON 4TH MARCH, 2012. PAGE.  142 VERSE 27. GOD SAID:  FOR THE VOICE SAID, “I AM PLANTING MY SEED HERE AS A MUSTARD SEED.  I MUST NURTURE IT UNTIL IT GROWS ABOVE ALL. WE ARE RUNNING LAST BUT WE ARE COMING FIRST. JUST FOLLOW ME AND YOU WILL SEE GREATER THINGS AHEAD ".

Hallelujah! When? 2012.  In this two messages God was talking about Nurture. Nurture means what?  Training. Giving us adequate information, adequate spiritual food that will make us to be fit. That will make us not to lack in anyway, in anything that is expected of us. That we will remain sound in doctrine.

All the essence of this code, conduct and doctrine is to mold our character. That is the essence of all this teachings. That is the essence our father almost 70 years; He is still labouring because he does not want anybody to be lost.

With that quote so far, I want us to look at the Topic "The Bride is Now Waiting in her Spiritual Fattening House"   We are waiting in our spiritual fattening house. Do you believe that? Yes   sir!

Let me just make a literal introduction to this fattening house. In those days when we were young, when a girl is to be married to a man; everything ready, dowry paid, the day of her traditional wedding has been fixed. In those days, white wedding was not common.

When all is set and everything is provided that there will be no disappointment, the man will be labouring, the Bride must have laboured and put everything in order because she is about going to the husband's house.

About a month, seven market days according to our traditional market days counting, this four days, seven of it makes a month.

But before the seventh market day, what happens? There is always a house in every community or village that the Bride will be sent. It is called "Fattening House".

When she is sent into that fattening house, she will cease from all forms of work, she will not partake in domestic work again. She will remain there.

Virtuous elderly women will go in there for this number of market days, teach her what it takes to make a family, in addition to what she learnt from her parent's house.

They will teach her how she will cope with the husband, how to relate with the husband, how to cook different dishes, how to make the husband happy, how to welcome him when he is coming back from work. All these things will be taught the girl.

She will not do anything, food will be prepared for her to eat in the morning, afternoon and in the evening. She will not go out to fetch water, she will only stay within that environment for that number of days. 

Any woman that do not have a good character will not be permitted to go near that place or anybody at all except those elderly virtuous women in the village.

A bad woman will not be allowed to go there so that the woman will not corrupt the mind of the Bride. They will look for camry (uli), cowries, ola and the rest to adorn the Bride.

The Bride will be adorned on daily basics. She will be taught everything on how to run a home.  Within this period, before the wedding, she will become fat, become beautiful, and add flesh.

 Such that she will be presentable to the husband on the day of her traditional marriage.

Did you get the information?  That is exactly what God is doing. He is preparing us, adorning us as the Bride, so that the Bridegroom will be pleased with the bride.

Giving us all it takes, dressing us from our head down to our toe.  What is He dressing us with?   The Word! That is why we are called "The word - Bride".

It takes the Bridegroom to provide all that the Bride will eat in that fattening house, all that will carry her in that number of days. The man will buy the best with which the Bride will be taking care of.

 She will not lack anything. Buy good cream, plait her hair so that she will look fine. I mean, Adorn herself beautiful. Halleluiah!

Adorn herself beautiful for the husband. On that day when she will be matching out to the arena, she will look beautiful, with smiles. She will wear a new cloth.

That is the New Cloth (Pointing at the 2018 Bridal calendar - The Original Body). Here is the Theophany body, the new cloth the Almighty God had preserved for his children.

 He said: The White Garment, that is the white garment he has laboured, he has preserved for us. He has reserved for you, he has reserved for me. Amen.

He has given us our white garment and that is why we should not stain it, there should be no spot, no wrinkle. He said:  "Some are hanging their own on their shoulder" No! It is meant for us to wear it.

Wear your garment; put on your white garment. This your white garment that God has given to us is nothing other than "The Word", the spoken word he gave to us.

That is where we are, we are in our fattening houses, our spiritual fattening houses.  Why are we in our Spiritual Fattening Houses?  We are in our spiritual fattening houses for us to be fully Adorned the way Christ will present us unto himself. Because He will present us to no other person but to himself.

The way He wants us to appear on that day. Halleluiah! That is why it is not good when all these forms of reports that come from brethren as a result of disobedience from time to time, it makes him sad and also as his children, we are not happy. It pleases no one.

We should therefore depart from anything that will make us to constitute a stumbling block to the movement of God in our day; and the only way we can achieve that indeed brethren is by "Obedience".

In that fattening house, The Bride; everything she is taught, she does it obediently. After some time, the Virtuous women will Test her. 

Do you understand me? She will be tested to know whether she actually understood. In the evening, the man will be invited to visit her in that fattening house.

 Before then, Food will already be prepared. Those elderly women will sit by the corner pretending they are not watching what is happening. They will use one corner of their eyes to watch.

To see how the girl will welcome the man, take him into the house, greet him, make him feel happy. They will monitor her to see what she will do. How she will present the food. That time the language we were using was "Pass the Food".

How the girl will pass the food at the center table. These elderly women will be monitoring her, giving her signals where she is not getting it right. They will monitor how she eats, how she compotes herself before the husband.

After everything she will see the man off. The man with joy, having afore - test of how his marriage will look like after the wedding.

So, we are having afore - Test.  We the bride are having what?  Afore - Test! How it will look like when we shall be in one place with our father in our theophany body. (Blessed be to his holy name).

We are having afore - test. If you buy a new vehicle, you test it. When an inventor manufactures a new engine it must be tested, God is trying to test - run what we are going to be. To see how compatible we are and He is doing it in our Homes.

He is test - running it  in our homes. The way every member of a family can live peacefully so that on that day when we shall put on immortality we will have no problem.

Because if we are to be conferred with immortality; when husband and wife are still fighting and quarrelling, there will be problem.  It then means we will be settling problem between husband and wife in our theophany body. God Forbid!

 So, God is Test - Running us in our homes to see how Melchizedek will live in peace with his family. To see how Brother will live in peace with his family. How peaceful are we living now in our individual homes.

God is test - running it to see whether we are actually mature enough to be given the theophany body. The promise He made to unveil immortality.

When we prove in our homes that indeed we are mature, that is only when He will thrust the sickle to harvest the earth but then it is in your hand, it is in my hand. It is in our hands.

If we can obey His word, this will be achieved. So, looking at the message "ACTION TIME PART 3 (OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE) PREACHED ON 31ST DECEMBER, 1997 CAMP MEETING CHAPTER 2 VS. 5. God said something there and it said:

"THIS IS THE HOUR OF MANIFESTATION OF SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD AND THERE IS NO OTHER THING THAT WILL MAKE US SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD EXCEPT OUR TOTAL OBEDIENCE TO THE WORD OF GOD. I REPEAT, "OUR TOTAL OBEDIENCE TO THE INSTRUCTIONS OF GOD ".

Did you hear it? This is really the hour of complete and full manifestation of sons and daughters of God and the only thing that will make us sons and daughters of God to manifest fully is nothing but complete Obedience.

That is the only thing that God needs. It is only obedience that makes God Happy; the only Bribe we can give God. He has already told us about it, It is nothing but what? Our implicit obedience.

Our implicit obedience to his instructions, to his word; not selective obedience but all, not partial. Our implicit obedience that is exactly what God demands from us.

In the same message "ACTION TIME PART 3 (OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE) PAGE 42 VS. 9. It said: "AS LONG AS MAN REMAIN OBEDIENT TO GOD, GOD MUST CONTINUE TO SPEAK TO MAN THROUGH MAN. HE MUST CONTINUE TO REVEAL HIS MIND, HIS WILL FOR MANKIND THROUGH MAN ".

God must do what? Speak to mankind through man. In as much as we remain obedient, He will always speak to us. What is this man?  The vessel in which God dwells in.

He cannot use any other thing to talk to man other than the vessel He dwells in and we have already known Him. I continue in verse. 28 to 29 of the same message: "GO AND DRIVE IT DOWN, THAT WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT, IF THEY MUST BE WITH ME IN ETERNITY, THEY MUST OBEY ALL THESE COMMANDMENTS TO THE LATTER"

If what? If we must be with him in Eternity. If we must be with God in eternity, we must obey all the commandments to the latter. Not partial, not selective. We have already known from 1992 the commandment of God is nothing but his messages, his spoken word, the messages he has given to us in this our age.

These are the commandments of God and they are not grievous. He has given us what is meant for our day.

"THEY MUST OBEY ALL THESE COMMANDMENTS TO THE LAST. GO AND TELL THEM THAT I TAKE DELIGHT IN THEM OBEYING MY WORD THAN TO RECEIVE SACRIFICE FROM ANYBODY ".

  That God takes delight in us obeying his word than to give sacrifice. If we empty our bank accounts, buy cars, buy everything; it is not bad if we do that but what He delights in is Obedience. That is what Samuel told Saul that "Obedience is better than sacrifice".

It is not the natural gifts that God wants from us, the highest gift He wants from us is Obedience. That is the only thing that will win His heart.

The only thing that will win the heart of a husband is the virtue of the wife. When the woman has a good character that is the only thing she will use to steal the heart of the husband.

She will become Nwanyi ma obi diya (The woman that knows the heart of her husband). So, the only thing that we will use to steal the heart of God is "Implicit Obedience”. Total obedience to his messages not leaving one.

Let me also read from the same message in page 56 verse. 56, it says: "HARKEN UNTO MY WORD AND OBEY ALL MY COMMANDMENTS. WALK IN ALL MY WAYS".

Who is talking?  God! He said we should do what? Harken unto his word and do what? Obey all his commandments. Not some, not the one that will suite you, not the one that you like.

The one that is against you; against your character, your long - life established idea; you drop it. No! "I WILL BE YOUR GOD. YOU WILL BE MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS. BUT ANY DAY YOU DISOBEY, I WILL CAST YOU AWAY FROM MY PRESENCE" Brethren Do You Believe that?  Yes sir!

Any day you disobey, any day you turn away from God's righteousness that is the end of it all. All you have done in the time past will no longer be remembered.

Walk in the Newness, in obedience to the word of God. Not keeping some aside. In Newness of Heart, Spirit of the living God falling afresh on us on daily basics.

Look, I have told you the experience I had in my office some time ago concerning Madam Ugochi, just a little lady in her early 30s. We were working together in passport department. Everyday when I keep on talking, preaching to people, she will stay quite. That lady does not make noise anyhow.

One day, after talking and the people left, we were about three or so left in our department. She called me; Oga Melchizedek, I turned to her. She said, let me tell you the truth, I have known you since we started this work in 2007 after our recruitment in 2006.

I have listened to you preach, I have also listened to so many people in this command and since I was born, I hear people preach the gospel, in churches and everywhere. Your message I have heard you preach remains outstanding.

It is different from what other preachers I have heard in my life preach. I must tell you the truth Oga Melchizedek, these messages I have heard you preach, if all the churches in this world should preach the same message and abide by it, Oga Melchizedek I tell you, Heaven; paradise will start here on earth. I was shocked.

She said, in your church, if all your members will put in practice these messages I heard you preach, your church will be the best in the whole world. To tell you the truth the message you preach, Men will not find it difficult to put these messages into practice, where I know that it will be difficulty in your church is among your women.

I asked her why she is said so. She said, look the type of message you preach agrees with the nature of Men, but women will find it difficult. There will be few Women in your church that will believe these message and put it into practice because I am a woman. I have to tell you the truth.

Women as we come to church and sit down, preach whatever thing you want to preach; we have already made up our mind on what we want to do.  Let the pastor preach and preach, shake the house; when we get home we do whatever we want to do.

 I was shocked hearing this lady saying this thing. When we got the job she was just a little girl who just left secondary school. She said, Oga Melchizedek I have to tell you the truth o. Where you will have problem is with your Women but to the men you will find it better.

 Someone we call a heathen. She was born and brought up in Roman Catholic, married to a Presbyterian. She said, “all though, I am married to a Presbyterian but my heart  still  remain in Roman catholic,  Everything about Roman catholic I like it but I have no  option than to follow my husband to worship in his church for I believe a woman must worship where the husband worships.

 Since I got married to him, I surrender my life to him, I must follow him in everything except bad things”.

Nobody is obeying God. Nobody knows what God is all about. It was then that He manifested, and this day, doing a work in you. Doing a work in me. He is doing a work in me. What is His purpose? To present to Himself a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle. Do not strife against your Maker, let Him do good work for you. He is doing everything good for you and for me. That is why HE is like this. Swallow everything my brethren. Do not develop hard heart. It will not help you, brethren.

WE CAN DO NOTHING AGAINST THE TRUTH, Preached on 30TH DECEMBER, 1997; page 34:44-45

2

WITHOUT GRACE, NO MAN CAN OBEY GOD

Do you see what a heathen can point out? That is what God said, that the devil will testify against this generation. So, In that the same message "ACTION TIME" PART 3 LET'S READ PAGE 60 VS. 60. The Almighty God said:  "DO NOT SHAKE YOUR HEAD, BUT PRAY AND SAY, “ALMIGHTY GOD GIVE ME ENOUGH GRACE TO OBEY ALL YOUR INSTRUCTIONS, FOR WITHOUT GRACE, NO MAN CAN OBEY YOU".  Amen.

That should be our request, Almighty God give me enough grace to obey all your instructions. For without grace no man can obey you. Amen

Song: Give me grace to follow, abundant grace to follow, Lord give me grace to follow, your grace is enough for me. Son of man give me grace to obey, abundant grace to obey you, your grace is enough for me.

Let's also read the message " Unity of the body " preached on  Sunday  20th November, 2016 page 33 verse. 33 : "THE MOMENT YOU COME TO THE  POINT WHERE YOU LACK THE REVERENTIAL FEAR OF GOD  AND WORSHIPFUL OBEDIENCE, YOU ARE GONE. THE POINT WHERE YOU ABUNDON GOD IS THE POINT WHERE GOD ABANDONS YOU. THE WAY YOU TREAT THE WORD OF GOD THAT COMES TO YOU IS THE WAY GOD IS SET TO TREAT YOU". Amen.

It is truth!  There is no guessing about it. Look at the mother of Jesus, when they had feast in Galilee, along the way, the scripture made us to understand that Jesus was barely 12years old,

On the way as they were going home, Jesus moving behind his parents, but what happened? At a point their minds turned carnal, they turned to carnality, their discussions ceased from Godly discussion to worldly discussion. At that point, Jesus turned away from them.

They continued. Do you see it? They continued with their discussion, gossiping, talking about the things of the world, Jesus turned his back from them and walked back to the Temple, to the place of worship.

While He was there, He started teaching while the father and mother continued in their carnality. Anywhere you leave God, that is where God will leave you. Where you abandon God, that is where God will abandon you.

So, what happened?  When they continued, they must have gone very far only before one of them to turn back and discovered that Jesus was nowhere to be found. They looked around, and could not find Him. Did they continue with their journey?  They were wise. They did not continue with the journey.

They went back looking for Jesus. At the junction where they turned to carnal things that was where they found Jesus. That was a wise decision. At that junction where the things of the world filled their discussion, husband and wife, that was where they found their God, Jesus, and reconciled themselves with him, but Reconciliation first of all took place in their hearts.

It was when reconciliation took place in their hearts that they were able to find Jesus. Did you understand it? Does it really make sense to you?  The point you abandon God that is the point God will abandon you. That is why He is a jealous God. He is not a God you can toil with to.

Let us also look at the message "EVERY SIGN FROM GOD IS A STOP SIGN" PREACHED ON SUNDAY 25TH JUNE, 2017 PAGE 71 verse. 70: "Nobody can do the work of God assigned to him without the spirit of God helping him. You can never obey the word of God without the spirit of God helping you". Is it not true? It is Sir!

Nobody can do the work of God without the spirit of God helping him. In the message "IDENTIFICATION OF THE MIGHTY ANGEL"   God said "The word that comes out of my mouth is the water, the water of life that flows in everywhere but this water cannot wash you except you remain obediently under the word that comes out from his mouth.

That we should remain in that boundary, within the sanctified estate that God has placed us, that as we wait in this our spiritual fattening house, that we should eat the Food, we should eat the WORD He has prepared for us;

The spiritual food, our willingness to partake, our willingness to eat it. The saviour has the table spread where his chosen people will come and dine. “Come and dine”, the food is ready. You are not the one to prepare it.

Just like the girl I narrated in the fattening house. She wasn't the one preparing the food. There were people that were in charge to prepare the food. Your duty is to Come and dine with Him; everything is ready.

He is the one that bears twelve different fruits in each season. Everyday He voices out the portion we need for the day. It is our ability to eat it that will keep us where He wants us to be.

Let us look at the message "DECISION TO MARRY” PREACHED ON 5TH JULY, 2014 PG. 64 verse. 61 "I WANT TO SAY IT, INDUCED OBEDIENCE IS NO OBEDIENCE. PARTIAL OBEDIENCE IS NO OBEDIENCE. FORCED OBEDIENCE IS NO OBEDIENCE. CONDITIONAL OBEDIENCE IS NO OBEDIENCE".

What? Induced Obedience.  That you are forced to obey, something is compelling you to obey. If not because of this thing I will not. No! That is why He told us that a marriage that is been sustained because of the presence of the children is not marriage and it is True.

Whether children or no children, Families, or Homes must first be formed, there must be a union between the man and the wife before children will come. So if at the point where you are, and the only thing sustaining you is your children, you are not married. 

If why you are in Christ or worshipping God, something is keeping you other than eternal life, there is a condition! You are a conditional worshipper. There is something that makes you to stay behind, there is something that makes you to obey God.

Obedience should be a Nature. It is our nature. Do you understand Brethren? It is our nature and we cannot avoid it. To him alone be the glory.

Let me also read from the message "ACTION TIME" PART 3 PG. 98 verse 8, GOD SAID: "IF YOU LOVE ME , FOLLOW MY FOOTSTEPS" In those days we used to sing  "Am following Jesus each step at a time".

So we should follow God each step at a time. We should follow his footsteps the same way the Israelites followed Moses each step at a time. When the cloud moved, Moses will announce to them and they would move.

So we are following each step at a time.  "IF YOU WANT TO BE A PARTAKER OF THIS ETERNAL SALVATION" Brethren, Do you want to be a partaker of it?  Yes sir!  I am the number one.

 "IF YOU WANT TO BE A PARTAKER OF THIS ETERNAL SALVATION, THE SECRET LIES IN TOTAL OBEDIENCE TO HIS COMMANDMENTS. BUT IF YOU DO NOT WANT ETERNAL SALVATION, WHATEVER THAT YOU HAVE BEEN HEARING IN THIS MEETING AND ALL THESE YEARS, SAY “NO " TO THEM ".

If Eternal Salvation is exactly not what you want, say NO to the messages you have been hearing, just get what you want and leave.

I told you, in Nassarawa, so many came, to get married. Some of our formal sisters came looking for husband, some of our formal brothers came looking for wives, immediately they got married, they went away.

Some were looking for a good job, they came in our midst, stayed; working assiduously, God gave them a good job and they left. Since then nobody heard anything about them.

What are you looking for? Son of man is on the mainland. Tell him what you want, Son of man is on the mainland now. Halleluiah!

If you want Eternal Salvation tell him. Whatever thing you need, is it healing?  Is it husband or Wife, or Blessings? Talk to him so that if it is not Eternal Salvation, He will give you what you need and you go.

But the Children of God we have no other place to go to; we have found our father. We were lost, conceived and born in iniquity, continued in the world until our father called us and we came to him. We are at home with him. The children of God are at home.

We have no place to go other than where we are. In the same message "ACTION TIME" PART 3 IN PG.115 verse. 69: "IF YOU WANT TO GET ALL YOU WANT FROM GOD, THE SECRET LIES IN SUBMITTING YOURSELF TO HIS WORD.

WHEN YOU OBEY GOD, ASK WHATSOEVER YOU WILL, YOU WILL GET IT. THE MOMENT YOUR OBEDIENCE IS FULFILLED, YOU WILL GET WHATEVER YOU WANT".

Brethren did you see it?  But the problem is that we place something else first before obedience. Like we used to hear in the world. Somebody will be saying “Jesus, Jesus, If you do this thing for me I will forever worship you.

I met a woman at Alex Ekwueme Federal Teaching Hospital when David Oyedepo gave his prophecy that COVID - 19 will come to an end on 27th of March.

 So she was boosting that her Spiritual Father had prophesied. I was at the NHIS Clinic to get clearance so as to get my drugs. So she was boosting, she was telling them how they had prayer last night and her spiritual father declared and it must come to pass.

I called her attention, I asked her, you said 27th March, she said; Yes. I told her I will come to this hospital after 27th March to meet with you, to know if what your spiritual father prophesied will come to pass.

She said, No, No, No, do not even go there, somebody like Bishop Oyedepo is not that type of person; Do you know why I follow him? I asked why? She said, I did not have a car, Bishop Oyedepo when he was ministering; I attended a camp meeting, he came to me, told me the date I will buy a car, the type of car I will buy, the colour and everything when I had nothing. I didn't know how I will be a car owner.

Look Oga, let me tell you, exactly before that date, money started coming from here and there. I even forgot the prophecy.

 Money came, I went for the car. I bought exactly that same type of car he told me. The colour, everything, on that same date. It was when I bought it that his voice came to me, I went and bought his sticker and placed at the car and said, forever I will be a member of Winners.

Do you see what motivated somebody to be a member of Winners church? What is it? Things that do not have eternal value. Not even for salvation. I don't know if that is also what you are looking for. Is that what you are looking for? A car?

Tell the Son of man let him bless you with V8 so that they will know that you have arrived, you will become so rich. Is that what you want? Fine!

But what the children of God needs are better than all these things, which is Eternal Salvation. It is not that we will not have car, money or build house. No!

All these things the psalmist said na Jara. Those things are by the way. When we will be translated we will not go with them. You will not carry your house, your car or anything at all. Amen.

Let's also look at the MESSAGE "ARE YOU COMPLYING OR OBEYING THE WORD OF GOD? PAGE. 27 verse. 2 The Voice said: "WHEN YOUR OBEDIENCE IS FULFILLED, NOTHING STOPS GOD FROM BRINGING THE PROMISE TO PASS. IS IT NOT SCRIPTURE? SO, HALF OBEDIENCE IS NO OBEDIENCE".

When our obedience come to pass, when we grow to the maturity were God will start seeing his Word in us, our actions being propelled by the word of God, our speech, our outlook reflecting the Word of God, everything about us,  then the promise He has made  will come to pass.

That is why He is waiting for us. We are the people delaying. We are disobedient to his instructions. That is what is delaying us, otherwise God would have hastened action. Within a twinkle of an eye everything will be over but how can he do it when families are parting away.

Husbands are running away from their wives, wives running away from their husbands. They now hang on the messages that will favour them; this is what the Son of Man said, let the unbelieving partner depart and these are same people that are waiting for what?  Translation.

Oh! I was talking to you my children. I made them to understand that the word of God said we should keep adjusting and re – adjusting; that the work God is doing now is to return us to the "Original life".

Just as the message we were considering in the morning made it clear that, what God is trying to do is to restore wives back to their original positions, Husbands to their original positions. To restore Families back to their original positions. That is the labour of God. He has only come to save a Family

The same way He saved the family of Noah, the same way He saved the family of Lot and Rehab. He has come to save a family and everything in that family must be perfect. You must be perfect. I must be perfect. God is taking nothing but "Perfection".

If God takes anything outside perfection, know ye that He will come again in flesh and start labouring. He wants to labour once and for all. This is the last sign, this is the seventh, and this is the last sign. To Him Alone Be the Glory.

In the message "MATRICULATION SPECIAL SERVICES" PART 2 PG. 61 verse 22, God said: "What qualifies you for translation is your obedience to the truth as is being revealed to you by the son of man.

The son of His (GOD'S) Pleasure. The only person that knows what it takes to put you in a rapturing condition. That settles the matter ". By who? The Son of Man.

What qualifies us for translation is nothing but our obedience. If only we can realize these, honestly, our translation will take place within a twinkle of an eye. Have you come to a point you realize this? Have I come to a point I realized, and the same have husbands and wives come to a point where they realized this?

Although, I do not know what is the aim of some families, I do not know what is your purpose of coming to this faith but as you come, you see the commission of the Son of Man, then as a wise fellow, for you to work acceptably with the Son of Man, you must understand the objective, the goal, and the aim of the Son of Man.

If you work contrary to the aim the person is pursuing, you will mess up things. First of all, you stop, you find out; why are we doing what we are doing? This is the question every man should ask himself.

Why are we doing what we are doing? Why is God doing all these things? Once we understand it, all we need to do is to align ourselves with what He is doing. The man aligning himself, the wife aligning herself. All to achieve that purpose.

But when I walk contrary, when you walk contrary to those purpose, it will not come to pass. Because God said “An evil man arms himself against himself, a disobedient man arms himself against himself ".

Do you understand? If you are a disobedient fellow, and you arm yourself against yourself not against the body of Christ or God”.

In another message God said "A Disobedient fellow is a burden to himself and to the society" In this regard, what is the Society? The Family of God. He is a burden to himself and to the family of God. You are arming yourself against your family.

You think when you become a single mother you can train your children. Can you train your children alone and raise them acceptably in the beloved? You train nothing. Is there anything you can do without God?  No! There is nothing in this life any man can achieve without God.

 Well, go ahead and try. But as a matter of fact we can achieve nothing without God. In the message "I AM" GOLDEN NUGGETS FROM THE MESSAGES OF THE SON OF MAN. Compiled by Bishop Okoh Fryde in page 70 verse. 210. God said: "THERE CAN NEVER BE EVIL IN THE CITY AND THE LORD HAS NOT DONE IT. THUS BE ON THE ALERT".

We should be what? On the Alert!  We should be on the alert. I told you in my secondary school days, I featured in all the sports.

When you come to track event, when we are about to start, you hear a command "On your marks" if you remain on the marks anyhow and feel at ease before the order will go, you will not spring.

 On the marks your left leg will be up then your right leg will be on the ground with your toes spring ready. The next command you will hear is "Get ready" either with the whistle or mouth.

But when you are on the line and at ease when the command went forth "Ready, Go" and if you did not get it that is all. So we should be at alert.

We should be spiritually at alert. What we need now is "Agility".  We should be Agile. When you are moving in the street and you see a uniform man, you call the person; Agile Mopol because they are always ready. We should not be at ease in Zion. We should be ready, I should be ready at all time.

Song: I want to be ready, make me Lord to be ready, Son of Man make me to be ready, walking on the bridge of His light Son of Man. Halleluiah!

That God should keep me ready, keep you ready, walking on his bridge of peace. "I AM TALKING ABOUT THE HOUR WE ARE IN, AND THE CLOCK THAT IS TICKLING GET READY, GET READY, GET READY! GET READY! GET READY!

HOW READY ARE YOU NOW? Sister, how ready are you now? Brother, how ready are you now? On marks!  Get ready! The next is the command. My request everyday is that, Son of man should help me to be ready, help me Lord to be ready, walking in the bridge of your light, Son of Man.

Our Father is ever ready 24 hours. On every moment He has not been overtaken by anything. He is ever ready. If He is in the house, in the workshop, everywhere, He is always ready. You! What about you? Are you ready?

We should be ready at all times. At any point in time you stops being ready then the boat will bypass you. It is like people waiting for a train or Moluwa bus in Lagos. It will keep on rolling, you are the one that will jump into the bus.

When it gets to your bus stop, you are the one that will jump down. If you are a JJC in Lagos,  and you are waiting for the Moluwa bus to stop, that means the Moluwa bus will carry you and keep on moving. For you must learn everything.

Let us get ready Brethren. Halleluiah! Let us read from the message "EXAMINE YOUR LIFE IN THE LIGHT OF THE TRUTH YOU HAVE RECEIVED" preached on Tuesday morning 24th March, 2015 at the Son of Man's Family Altar by Apostle Peter Odoemena. The Son of Man.

Let us see what God said in pg.17 verse. 2 to 8. "LET US NOT BE UNGRATEFUL PEOPLE WHO CAN HARDLY APPRECIATE WHATEVER GOD IS DOING FOR THEM.

EVERY TRUE SEED OF GOD REMAINS APPRECIATIVE OF EVERY LITTLE THING, FAVOUR HE OR SHE RECEIVES NOT ONLY FROM GOD, EVEN FROM HIS FELLOW MANKIND"

We should remain appreciative. We are ingrates, for we are biting the finger that is feeding us by our disobedience, by our character, and by our behaviour. The stories that are springing up from our homes shows we are not grateful.

To at least appreciate our father at the age He is, Almost 70 years yet He has not thrown in the trowel. He is labouring on daily basics.

 We do not pay him, we are not giving Him tithe, for you to say:  "After all we are paying Him, What are we paying Him for?"  We do not pay him. If your family is okay, if your family makes it, it is for your own good. If your family lose, you lose, if your family did not make it; it is to your own peril.

But what is His aim? That nobody should perish, that nobody should be left behind. That is why we should at least appreciate his work, we should try as much as we can, and the only way we can appreciate His work is by being Obedience.

In this Spiritual Fattening House, the only thing to show that we appreciate is by Obedience.

Song:  “Lord we appreciate you for your Love, Lord we appreciate you for your love. As a father you gave me joy, as a mother you gave me peace and as a friend you stood by me all the time".

All the time, He never left us, He never departed from us for one day. Let us show Him that we are human beings. Am not talking about the appreciation of buying this, buying that, yet it is good to do that but appreciate God for what he is doing for us everyday.

We should obey him. Total obedience is all the appreciation that is needed. That, Father you are trying for us, at least let me obey for once.

 "NO MATTER HOW SMALL THAT FAVOUR MIGHT BE, BE APPRECIATIVE". Be what?  Appreciative! No matter how small that favour might be. Be appreciative.

SAY "THANK YOU" FROM YOUR HEART BECAUSE IT IS NOT EASY. What Son of Man is doing is not easy o. Look at the messages all these church founders preach and their members are paying dearly through their incomes everyday, and every month to enrich their General overseers.

"THERE ARE TOO MANY PEOPLE THAT ARE WONDERING FROM PILLAR TO POST, PRAYING EARNESTLY THAT GOD WOULD SHOW THEM FAVOUR. BUT THEY ARE MISSING THE WHOLE THING".

Look at where we are, people are running to and fro, looking for a way out but we are at ease. Why are we at ease? Because we have God in our midst. He told us everything before it came to pass. Otherwise, we would have been running helter-skelter like the world as a result of COVID - 19.

But it seems we are at ease. When people see us, they will say we are not looking as if anything is happening. I went to my office, people are emaciating. When they saw me, they said "Oga Melchizedek, ha, in this COVID - 19 look at how you are refreshing, what are you eating? When I asked my friend, Divine, why he was looking the way he is looking? He said "Oga Melchizedek, why are you asking me this type of question nah.

COVID - 19 no reach your house? Did not you see what we are passing through? I asked him, has the Federal Government denied you of your salary for one day? He said "Oga no go there o! Na salary we live by? I told him that means for you to look like this, that is, you have been living above your earnings and then COVID - 19 has come to block those ways.

 He said, oga Melchi abeg go your way. People are looking terribly bad, people that were fatter than me are now looking tinnier.  Their uniform are now oversize, Why? Because of the impact of COVID - 19 but to us it is a different thing.

 Look brethren we need to Appreciate God. We need to say “God, thank you" from the depth of our hearts. This man who has done this thing, without this man who came from opposite side, we would not have reached Golgotha. Honestly, we should remain Appreciative to him.

"THE GREATEST FAVOUR WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM GOD IS THIS FAITH, THIS BRIDAL FAITH WHERE OUR EYES OF UNDERSTANDING GOT ILLUMINATED. WHERE WE CAME FACE TO FACE WITH THE TRUTH."  Sure!

"THE WHOLE WORD IS WALLOWING IN IGNORANCE, IN DARKNESS. I AM TELLING YOU THE WHOLE TRUTH. THIS FAITH IS THAT NARROW PATH, NARROW WAY WHICH JESUS CHRIST SAW AHEAD OF TIME AND TOLD PEOPLE TO STRIVE TO ENTER THROUGH THE NARROW GATE".

That is it!  We are at that narrow way, except if your eyes of understanding had not opened. This message is our eyes opener. He has told us where we are, we should make judicious use of the opportunity God has given to us.

We should not be like the eaglet that was caught by a hunter, tied for too long, the mother was looking for it. Then one day the hunter loosed it to go, when the mother came calling the eaglet to fly, the eaglet said, "mummy o, Am too tied, I cannot fly” You have been taken away from the cage, Go! You don't want to go, you still remain.

Sometime ago, When I was living in Ikom, we always ply the whole North, Buying and selling. The day I did not go, I sent my boys to Makurdi in Benue state.

They took half way, when the got there, the kept our goods. A boy that was just released from the prison that day, came there and stole one of the bags. The following day He was arrested.

When they arrested him and took him to the police station. Do you know what the boy told the police?  The boy was a notorious criminal he has spent many years in prison. He does not want to stay outside.

 Immediately they arrested him, when they came back they told me the police invited me. When we got there, he told the police that they should hasten up that they should not waste time.

 That they should take him to court and imprison him,   I was shocked. He said, in the prison there is food, If he goes out, while he is released, he will start labouring on how to eat. He said he do not even know road again to his father's compound.

 He was begging the police upon his knees, begging them not to put him in awaiting trial. That they should take him to court and then the court should sentence him to prison. That the prison yard is better than Awaiting trial.

 The police asked me, oga what will you do in this type of matter.  I said my dear, where is the money of the other bag?  He said, oga, na only food, na only one bag I carry, as I sold it I started spending the money. I told my boys lets carry the half and go, then I told the police to release him.

 You look at him you see marks all over his body, everywhere, beatings human beings has given to him without shame. Each time he serve his prison terms and come out, that same day, he will commit another crime and go back.

 It also happened here at Abakaliki, at the prison club. When this our new bikes were given to us. Some of our officers went down there to drink in the night. That day a notorious criminal from Ezzangbo was released from the prison but he didn't go, he was hanging around.

 Immediately those boys were in the prison club drinking nobody knew how he came, stole their bike, cut the key and then rolled the bike down to Ezzangbo. Immediately he went there he carried a girl and start cruzing about.

 People were calling him, hailing him that he returned from the prison with a new bike. So after drinking and they came out only to discover that their bike was not there. It was one of the prison officers that remembered it was that day that criminal was released.

 That each time he is released, he will do something again to come back to the prison. So if you can go to Ezzangbo this night I bet you, you will get that bike from him.

 The prison officer gave the description of the criminal. Our officers called our other officers living at Ezzangbo.

 They traced the man, saw him cruising everywhere with his girlfriend. That night he has already made a girlfriend.

 You know girls like good things. He carried the girl cruising everywhere, they waited for him, immediately they beckoned on him, grabbed him, he abandoned the girl and ran away. The man fleed, someone that was released from the prison.

 Let us not behave like that. That God has released us from the prison, we want to remain back in the prison. No! It is disheartening.

 

BUT IN CHRIST, NOBODY IS JOBLESS. THE GREATEST JOB YOU CAN ENGAGE YOURSELF IN IS DOING THE WORK OF GOD, SELFLESSLY. IN THE SAME WAY, THE GREATEST INVESTMENT YOU CAN MAKE IN YOUR LIFE IS TO INVEST IN THE SPREADING OF THE GOOD NEWS OF CHRIST. Any other investment may give you joy temporarily, but at the end, you just discover it is a wasted investment. I say, a wasted investment, which aims at giving you temporary happiness, temporary joy. BUT WHEN YOU INVEST IN CHRIST, INVEST IN THE SPREADING OF THE GOOD NEWS OF CHRIST, YOU ARE STORING YOURSELF ETERNAL TREASURE THAT CAN NEVER GO UNREWARDED.

THINGS YOU MUST WATCH OUT FOR O YOU MINISTERS [VOLUME 1] preached 14th July, 2019; page 41:22-25

A CALL TO SERVE GOD, IS A CALL TO SUFFER WITH HIM

 

H

E SAID THAT THERE IS A NARROW GATE THAT LEADS TO ETERNAL LIFE. HE TOLD THEM THAT ONLY A FEW WOULD FIND IT.

BUT THERE IS A BROAD WAY, A BROAD GATE, AND A VERY WIDE GATE, HENCE PEOPLE ARE SURGING INTO IT IN MILLIONS AND IN TRILLIONS. HE SAID, “DO NOT EVER FOLLOW THE BROAD WAY".

 Brother, and Sister, We are privileged to be counted worthy that God put us into this narrow way. All we have to do is to walk therein. Do you think it was Peter, James and John that were the only Fishermen? But they were privileged that Jesus called them.

  They abandoned all and followed him. Other fishermen continued in their fishing. They forsook all and followed him. We should forsake all and follow the Son of Man obediently, not following carnally, not only our flesh following him but our spirit also. We should forsake all. To him alone be the glory.

 "BUT LOOK AT THIS NARROW GATE, YOU SEE THIS GATE, THE GATE IS VERY NARROW, THE GATE IS VERY NARROW. HE SAID, “FOLLOW THAT ONE.  STRIVE! STRIVE EARNESTLY THAT YOU MAY ENTER “. FOR THERE WILL BE MANY THAT WILL STRUGGLE TO ENTER BUT THEY CANNOT. BUT TO YOU THAT REALLY BELIEVE, HE SAID, “STRIVE THAT YOU MAY ENTER".

 You! If you really believe. This is the time, the last moment for us to struggle to enter. This is the last time. He said I have already told you, there is no other person coming after me. If there is anybody that will come after me I would have told you.

  At the ending of William Branham, He told us there was one coming after him. When the Son of Man came, He told us “Nobody is coming after me “If there is anybody I would have told you.

 "WAS THERE EVER A TIME HE SAID IT IS EASY? IF IT IS NOT DIFFICULT, IF THE ROAD IS VERY EASY, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WILL NOT HAVE ENJOINED US TO STRIVE, STRUGGLE, BE COURAGEOUS, TRY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN TO DO WHAT? TO ENTER.

To ENTER THROUGH THE NARROW GATE. ONLY FEW WILL FIND IT." Was there ever a time God said it is easy?  No!   Call to serve God, Is a call to suffer with him.

Song: Come walk with me the road is rough and narrow, come walk with me, you cannot walk alone, for the road is rough and there are many dangers, come as you are and I will see you through".

Come as you are and I will see you through. But who makes it easier and smooth? God! It is not an easy ride. The road to Eternity is not an easy ride. It is not Bread and Butter affair, it is not a bed of roses. We should try as much as we can to do what? To Enter.

Sister, and Brother, try as much as you can to enter. "ONLY FEW WILL FIND IT" And you are among that few God has shown it. It is not by power, it is not by might. You can try on your own but if God does not show you this way, you will never see it. You should try!

The magnet is hovering, it is coming lower. When you put pins on the ground, remember the magnet, magnets nothing but iron.

 It does not magnet rubber or plastic. I don't want to talk about that, that is, the mixed-multitude, and the make-believers. what the magnet, magnets is iron.

Something that has that element of Magnetism. So if you pour pins on the ground, by the element of magnetism in those pins, they will hover towards the magnet as the magnet come closer, it will be moving towards the direction of the magnet.

 Even if you take it down to earth, look at that iron (pointing at an Iron) that iron, concrete was poured on it, but once you take the magnet there, it will magnet.

 Do you understand it? Some Iron has hole inside because the iron has been lying in the mould, the mould filled it, it become very heavy.

When iron is magneted to the magnet, the magnet pulls the iron although that iron is filled with sand, sand has filled the columns, and it is heavy.

The magnet will magnet it but to pull it, the iron will resist. Why? Something filled it. Something that is not its nature filled it. It cannot go, it has been lying down there rusted. It is this disobedient, these worldly things, and the carnality.

I do not want to talk about the plastic or the rubber, am talking about the Iron. We are heavily laden. He said come unto me all that are heavily laden and I will give you rest.

 We are heavily laden, the mould has filled the iron that is why the iron cannot move. The magnet wants to pull it to go but the iron is heavy. So it is for us to start pushing out those moulds from the iron.

Push out the concrete that is holding me so that I will be magnetized by the magnet. I will be attracted and griped to the magnet, so that the magnet will pull me along. Do you understand?

This is the time of Total Purification. Do you want to go with Christ? This is the time for total purification. Purge out these Worldliness that is making you not to float. We are meant to float on the water.

Some of us are sinking in worldliness. Our hearts are filled up with things that are not godly that is why we are sinking. I was sinking deep in sin. We are supposed to float but we allowed the mould to fill our column, the magnet cannot pull us along and He is giving us a red light showing the sign that we cannot go along with him, that is the essence of messages He is preaching on daily basics. It is the red sign of His going.

The Red Light of What? Of His Going. Flashing red light for the going of Christ. What do I do?  Empty the Worldliness that is making you to be heavy.

What will you tell as your story? What will you say was your excuses?  He told us that there were some Israelites that remained back there in Egypt.

What then will be your story? If you want to go back from where we are now, do you know the road? Can you come along alone? No!  So what do we do? This is the time for Purification. A time of Sacredness.

His message is our Righteousness. Let the message of Christ go into the columns and wash it.

Song: Whiter than the snow, whiter than the snow, wash me in the Word of the Lamb and I shall be whiter than the snow. Halleluiah!

Total Purification, total cleansing because what we need now is Perfection, for Christ has come to take nothing but Total Perfection.

Song: Our God is a Perfect God, our God is a perfect God, and Yes He's a perfect God. Son of man is a perfect God, Yes, He's a Perfect God. Halleluiah.

That is all we need Brethren. I do not know where, I don't know how; but this is the truth. That is what we need. To God be the Glory.

Let me go to page 32 of the same message " Examine Your  Life in The Light of The  Truth You Have Received " Verse 14 "GOD SAID THAT FROM TIME TO TIME, YOU SCRUTINIZE  YOURSELF "

From time to time you do what? You scrutinize yourself. What is the essence of this scrutiny? To cleanse us from this Worldliness that is making us to sink. "RE - EXAMINE YOUR LIFE IN LINE WITH THE FAITH"

Re - examine your life, you! Your Life, does it agree, does it dovetail with the message the Son of Man has given to us. The present stage of the ministry, are you measuring up to the Standard?

"DO NOT RE - EXAMINE YOUR LIFE WITH WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING. DO NOT LOOK AT WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING.

DO NOT EVER SAY THIS PERSON DOES THIS. DO NOT COMPETE YOURSELF TO SOMEBODY. DO NOT EVER TRY IT!

Do you see it? Do not ever try it, do not do what others are doing, only you and you alone. It is an individual race.

Scrutinize yourself, find out for yourself whether you are measuring up, whether you are meeting up the standard while we wait in this Spiritual Fattening House. Where God is feeding us with Spiritual Balanced Diet.

Are you eating enough? Are you adding Fat? Spiritual fat not physical fat. Page 35 Verse 19 of the Same Message: "WHAT YOU THINK THE DOOR WILL REJECT IS NOT WHAT THE DOOR WILL REJECT. THAT IS WHY YOU MUST FIND OUT WHAT GOD HATES"

You must find out what? What God hates. A child of God hates what his Father hates. A woman that loves the husband, hates what the husband hates. What God abhors is what we should abhor. In this time we are, Find out what God hates.

"EVERYBODY AMONG US, BOTH YOUNG AND OLD. IF YOU KNOW WHAT GOD HATES, IF YOU KNOW WHAT THE MESSAGE THAT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO YOU REJECTS, IF THERE IS ANYTHING HE SAID YOU SHOULD DO, DO IT. ANY ONE HE SAYS YOU SHOULD NOT DO, DO NOT EVER DO IT. AVOID IT."

The one He says we should do, we should do it. The one He says we should avoid, we should avoid it. That is only when we will remain in the boundary where he has placed us.

Page 40 from Verse 33 to 36 of the same Message: "WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS THIS. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO HAVE A PROBLEM AT THIS DYING MINUTE". When? At this dying minute

"WHEN WE ARE AT THE GATE, REMEMBER SOME PEOPLE HAVE DIED BEFORE WE GOT TO THE GATE, SOME PEOPLE FELL BY THE WAYSIDE, BUT WE HAVE REMAINED ALIVE, HOLDING ON TO THIS FAITH AND NOW WE HAVE ARRIVED AT THE GATE ALIVE, WHERE WE ARE NOW WAITING FOR IT TO OPEN. THAT ONE STEP IS WHAT GOD IS STILL TALKING ABOUT".

Now we are at the gate, many get to this place, many went out. Was it by your making that you reached to the gate? No sir! Who uphold you to come to this gate?  God! 

It is God, God has kept you, God has kept me, to come to this gate. What He only demands from us is for us to remain in the present stage of the ministry. And the voice of the present stage of the ministry is what? Total Obedience.

"ALL THE MESSAGES THAT ARE BEING PREACHED TODAY ARE ABOUT THAT LAST STEP: LAST MINUTE. LAST STEP. LAST STEP. THAT IS WHERE GOD IS. AND THIS LAST SELECTION OR LAST STEP WHERE WE ARE, IT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WILL DECLARE WHO IS IN GOD AND WHO IS NOT IN GOD".

Do you see it? The messages that are preached today are what? About that Last step. That last step, that is all. Look at the messages He preaches everyday, today, as I am talking He is handling down messages and all the messages are pointing to one thing.

Who is doing the Final Selection? God!

"NOBODY WILL POINT YOU OUT. IN THIS ONE, THERE IS NO TRICK THERE. IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT YOUR MOTHER TOLD YOU OR THE SON OF MAN OR THAT PASTOR SAID. THIS ONE IS BEYOND YOU. IT IS BEYOND YOU".

So all our tricks is not where we are now because you are already in your homes. "HE WILL TAKE A PHOTOGRAPH OF WHO YOU ARE ALL BY HIMSELF"

Who will take a photograph? God. He is taking photograph of us when we are in our homes. Giving updates on daily basics.

Picturing you in what you are doing in your homes. We are not coming together again in the general assembly. He is monitoring us in the home.

 In our secret places, wherever we are, who is photographing it? God! There's no hiding place. "BECAUSE ONCE YOU ARE COMING INTO THIS PLACE, THE CCTV (Closed- circuit television ) CAMERA WILL TRANSMIT YOUR PHOTOGRAPH TO THE MANAGER'S OFFICE STRAIGHTAWAY"

I am the door. Who is the door? God. He is taking record everyday, in our families. So you cannot hide it.

So, that is why we need to be very careful. He pictures everything. Whatever thing you do, whatever thing you hide, God makes it open.

Page 44, chapter 3 of the same message, verse 1 to 8 "LET US LIVE THAT LIFE THAT WOULD MAKE GOD SAY" “WELCOME"

 We should do what? Live that Life that would make God to say "Welcome" and the only life we will live that would make God to say "welcome" is total obedience.

"A LIFE THAT WOULD NOT CREATE PROBLEM FOR US WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW"

A life that will not create problem where we are now. In our spiritual fattening house. That is where we are, “at the gate”.

Live that life that will not create problem for you. Because any problem you have now it will be over. When you hear on your marks and you knee down and your body is shaking, when you hear "Ready, Go!  "Others will go, you will remain behind, you put shame to your school, to your house; like in those days we did inter - house sports.

"AND WHAT IS THAT LIFE? USE YOUR HAND TO TELL YOURSELF THE NAKED TRUTH. SELF - EXAMINATION" What? Self -Examination.

Examine yourself everyday, every hour, and every minute. Examine yourself whether you agree with the message of the Son of Man.

"RE - EXAMINE YOURSELF IN THE LIGHT OF THE TRUTH YOU HAVE RECEIVED.  RE - EXAMINE YOURSELF! THE TIME WHEN WE USED TO SAY, "RE- EXAMINE THE FAITH" IS PAST.

"ANYBODY RE - EXAMINING THIS FAITH IS AN UNBELIEVER. HOW CAN YOU RE - EXAMINE THE CONFIRMED FAITH, TO SAY WHETHER THIS FAITH IS TRUE OR FALSE? THAT SHOWS THAT THAT FELLOW HAS DOUBT. I AM NOT IN DOUBT AS TO WHETHER THIS FAITH IS TRUE OR FALSE".

If you are still in doubt go ahead and doubt to your own eternal damnation. "THUS, I AM NO LONGER RE - EXAMINING THIS FAITH. THIS FAITH IS TRUE. THIS FAITH HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY THE ALMIGHTY GOD TO BE THE ONLY LIVING AND TRUE FAITH FROM THE ONLY LIVING AND TRUE GOD. (SELAH).

"IT IS NOW LEFT FOR ME TO CHECK AND KNOW WHETHER I AM IN IT OR NOT. TO CHECK WHETHER I JUST CAME IN AND SAT DOWN, ASSUMING THAT I AM GOING TO CHURCH: "I AM GOING TO CHURCH WITH MY MOTHER. I AM GOING TO CHURCH WITH MY FATHER.  "NOMINAL WORSHIP. EVERYTHING NOMINAL".

No! The time for nominal worship is over:  "I am going to church with my husband, there is one church at GTC; the man I married worships there. Is it true that you want to come to my house? Don’t come, we use to dismiss late.

When we go, the man they call Son of Man, He will preach and preach we will dismiss very late. So, what will I do? I have to follow my husband to his church.

No! The time of that Follow - Worship is over. The time of “Followship" is over. What we have now is "Fellowship ".  So make a difference between Followship - follow you to your church and Fellowship - Worshipping of God.

The time of followship is over, what we have now is what?  Individual Fellowship with Christ. "SUCH A FELLOW IS NOT CONVINCED AND DEFINITELY NOT ATTACHING ANY IMPORTANCE TO THE FAITH. A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THIS FAITH DO NOT ATTACH ANY IMPORTANCE TO THIS FAITH".

Do you believe that?  Yes Sir! That is why they are having troubles, beside God has been talking and addressing issues everyday, yet, issues are still springing up from everywhere? 

People who do not attach any importance to the faith. What they attach importance to are worldly things. Things that do not have eternal value. That is why their homes are having problems.

Anything about this faith does not concern them.  If you talk too much I will pack and go back to my father's house, and become a single mother. That is the thing that is flooding the heart of an individual at this point in time that we should be deaden all those things.

 At a time we should be harvesting, at a time the magnet is beaming, showing us flashy red light and telling us to take up. At a time the life boat is about to go.

"YOU HAVE HEARD THE TESTIMONY OF THOSE THAT LEFT THIS MOST HOLY FAITH. MESSAGES HAVE BEEN PREACHED AND THESE MESSAGES ARE EXACTLY LIKE THE VOICE WE ARE HEARING THIS MORNING. GOD HIMSELF STIRRING UP PURE MINDS IN US, PUTTING US IN REMEMBRANCE ABOUT THE HOUR WE ARE LIVING IN".

Except you have not heard. Those that left this faith, where are they today? You that wants to go out of the faith. The messages God preach on daily basics is to do what? Stir up pure minds in us, about the hour we are living in and giving us updates, for events are made clear by prophecies.

"WE HAVE SEEN TROUBLE RAVAGING THE ENTIRE WORLD" Brethren shall we put our hands together. We have seen what? Troubles ravaging the entire World presently.

"WE ARE WITNESSES TO WHAT IS HAPPENING IN ISRAEL. WE ARE WITNESSES TO WHAT IS HAPPENING IN RUSSIA, AMERICA, SYRIA, LEBANON, EGYPT, EVERYWHERE. WE ARE ALSO WITNESSES TO THE THINGS HAPPENING IN NIGERIA PRESENTLY NOW".

I do not mean the one that happened when this message was preached, we are witnesses to what is happening in these countries I mentioned presently now. Not the one that happened March 15th, 2015 the time the message was preached. No!

But what is happening now? You have seen what is ravaging the whole world, Corona Virus and God said, the worst is about to come.

Page 53:20-22: "ARE YOU AMONG THE CHURCHGOERS, WHO DO NOT ATTACH ANY FORM OF IMPORTANCE TO ALL THE TEACHINGS WE RECEIVE?"

This is the question God asked in 2015. We are already in our homes, Are we still churchgoers in our homes? It is only a churchgoer that does not attach any importance to the teachings of Christ that we have received. 

Just as Madam Ugochi said, "The problem you will have in your church are the women. She said "I am a woman, let the pastor preach, shake the house when we go home we do what we want to do. I agree!

It is only a churchgoer among us that will do so. It is only a sister or a brother in our midst that is a churchgoer that will do such.

But to the children of God, we are not churchgoers. We attach importance to the teachings we receive.

"AM I AMONG THIS GROUP OF PEOPLE? ONE THAT DOES NOT ATTACH ANY IMPORTANCE TO THE MESSAGES RECEIVED". Are you among them? God Forbid!

"I AM RAISING THIS ALARM SO THAT YOU DO NOT THINK THAT GOD IS TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE OUTSIDE THIS FAITH “God is not talking about people outside this faith. God is talking about me, about you in this faith. He is talking about us.

"HE IS TALKING ABOUT US. WHO IS GOD TALKING TO? HE IS TALKING TO YOU AND ME. THE WHOLE PLACES GOD SPOKE ABOUT IN THE SCRIPTURES IS FOR YOU AND ME.

"FORGET ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE. IT DOES NOT CONCERN YOU. GOD USED PEOPLE TO FULFIL ALL THE PROPHECIES IN THE SCRIPTURES, BOTH GOOD AND BAD ONES. IT IS YOU AND ME THAT WOULD FULFIL THEM.

REMEMBER THAT THERE WAS NO OTHER SIN THE DEVIL COMMITTED OTHER THAN WILLFUL DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD’S WORD WHICH BECAME A CHALLENGE TO GOD’S AUTHORITY AND TO GOD’S PERSONALITY. AND GOD DECIDED TO REDEEM HIS REPUTATION BY PUSHING HIM OUT. IF WE ARE FOUND IN DISOBEDIENCE TO THE TRUTH THAT IS REVEALED TO US, IT THEN GOES TO SHOW THAT WE ARE SATANIC. WE ARE SATANIC! WE HAVE MADE UP OUR MINDS TO GO WHERE THE DEVIL IS.

FIND OUT THE PART OF THE SCRIPTURES YOU ARE FULFILLING

FIND OUT THE PART OF THE SCRIPTURES YOU ARE FULFILLING". Brother, sister! Find out the part you are fulfilling. Is it the part of obedience unto eternal life? Or the part of disobedience unto eternal damnation. Which part are you fulfilling? Is the question. Halleluiah! Blessed be to his holy name.

Let us go to page 69, chapter 4. It is titled "RE-EXAMINE YOUR LIFE IN THE LIGHT OF THE TRUTH YOU HAVE RECEIVED” From Verse One to Eighteen (1 - 18).

"Re-examine your life in the light of the truth you have received. It is not good for anyone to be forgetful of the things that pertain to him. Do not forget yourself. Do not forget the hour you are living in".

Do you understand? I have been telling   you about the spirit of forgetfulness. It is a bad spirit. It is as bad as the spirit of telling Lies.

If you have a forgetful spirit, there's no meaningful thing you will be told to do that you will remember. Everything you will forget, it is bad.

And I have told you, the antidote to forgetfulness is that anything you are told to do, you start doing it immediately.

Don't say later on I will do it. Later on you will forget. Don't be Forgetful Hearers.

"THE HOUR WE ARE LIVING IN IS VERY DELICATE; VERY, VERY DELICATE. YOU WOULD NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM SAYING  UNTIL IT WILL HAPPEN BEFORE YOUR EYES"

Brethren Do You Hear It? The period we are living in, in this period of COVID - 19 is very delicate. Even up till today many people do not believe what is happening in the whole world.

They are saying it is not real. People are calling over the radio and asking why is it that it is only big men that tests positive. Pray it doesn't come to you.

"I HAVE KEPT ON SOUNDING THIS ALARM, CONTINUALLY BOTH IN THE CONGREGATION AND IN THIS FAMILY. SEE APRIL (Now August) COMING."

And God said between 17th May and 31st August. August is fast approaching.

 "NOBODY HERE CAN PREDICT WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN APRIL (Now August). NOBODY CAN SAY IT. CAN YOU EVEN PREDICT WHAT WILL HAPPEN TODAY THAT IS MARCH 24TH"

Today can you predict? That is 10th July, can predict what will happen?

"CAN YOU PREDICT WHAT WILL HAPPEN TODAY? HOW MUCH MORE APRIL (Now August in Front).

"THIS IS WHY  EVERY OPPORTUNITY GOD GIVES TO US TO LIVE  ON EARTH IS TO SANITIZE OUR LIVES , TO BETTER OUR LIVES"

To do what? To sanitize our lives. God said, "We should sanitize our hearts not our hands. We should use the word of God to sanitize our hearts.

Our sanitizer should be the word of God. If you want to be free from spiritual corona virus; you need what?  You need to sanitize your heart with the word of God.

“IF THERE'S ANY MISTAKE I MADE YESTERDAY BUT COULD NOT CORRECT IT, I CAN CORRECT IT TODAY".

You Can Do What? Adjust!  Adjust and re-adjust. You heard it from Evangelist Ikem last Sunday. So we should adjust. We should keep on Adjusting.

“THAT WE ARE LIVING ON IS NOT FOR ENJOYMENT OR TO MESS UP OURSELVES OR HARDEN UP IN INIQUITY"

The time we are living now is not for enjoyment. It is not the time to mess up; move about, carry small bag, go and collect and submit; money for hand, bag for ground. No!

That is not the time we are living in.  The time we are now is not for enjoyment or to mess up yourself.

"WE ARE LIVING ON TO PURIFY OURSELVES MORE, BECAUSE AS YOU GROW, SO WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING COME INTO YOU".

To do what? To purify ourselves more. Brethren as we grow, understanding and Wisdom comes into us. How do you grow? Do you think you will just sit down and you grow? 

We grow as we feed ourselves with spiritual balanced diet. The essence of giving human beings balanced diet is to enable them to grow, mentally and otherwise. As you eat this Spiritual Balanced Diet, you grow spiritually.

"THEN YOU  REPACKAGE YOURSELF AND KNOW HOW TO POSSESS YOUR VESSEL ONTO HONOUR"

Why we eat this spiritual balanced diet is to repackage ourselves so that we will not remain where we were or where we are. We repackage ourselves and move forward.

"THUS, IT IS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT AS CHILDREN OF GOD AND  AS IT HAS BECOME CLEAR TO US THAT THE FAITH WE ARE IN, IS NOT THE FAITH WE WILL START SAYING LET US RE - EXAMINE  OUR FAITH ; RE - EXAMINE  YOUR FAITH IS NOT IN THIS FAITH.

WHAT YOU SHOULD BE RE - EXAMINING IS YOUR LIFE. WHAT I SHOULD BE RE - EXAMINING IS MY LIFE TO KNOW WHETHER MY LIFE IS IN LINE WITH THE MESSAGE".

"ONCE I RE - EXAMINE MY LIFE WITH THE WHOLE DOCTRINE AND MESSAGE  GOD HAD GIVING US, AND  I FIND  OUT THAT I AM IN LINE, I WILL CONTINUALLY GIVE GOD ALL PRAISE AND HONOUR.

I WILL BE PRAYING TO HIM TO UPHOLD ME LEST I FALL" LORD, UPHOLD ME LEST I FALL".

Lord, hold me the way you hold me Lord. There's nothing I can do to hold myself, Son of man hold me the way you are holding me for there's nothing I can do to hold myself. Halleluiah!

 "AND IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU BELIEVE, IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT THESE FAITH IS ALL ABOUT, YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE FALLEN AWAY. ONE THAT DOES NOT KNOW WHEN HE OR SHE IS IN THIS FAITH, WILL THE PERSON KNOW WHEN HE OR SHE HAS FALLEN AWAY?

 "YOU  MUST KNOW WHEN YOU ARE IN THE FAITH BEFORE YOU CAN RECOGNIZE WHEN YOU HAVE FALLEN AWAY"

We do not know the message of Christ in marriage that is why we act anyhow we like. You do not know the doctrine of Christ in this faith that is why you act the way you act. That is why your character is the way it is. You act odd.

"YOU SHOULD KNOW WHEN YOUR PRAYER LIFE IS DWINDLING, BECAUSE YOU ARE IN THIS FAITH. YOU MUST KNOW WHEN YOUR PRAYER LIFE IS ON THE RISE BECAUSE YOU ARE IN THIS FAITH".

As a child of God, You must know when your relationship between you and Christ is severed. If you do not know it, you will not know when you have fallen away.

If you do not know when you have severed relationship with God or when a woman do not know when she is in a good relationship with her husband, are you actually married?

"AND IF YOU ARE IN THIS FAITH YOU MUST KNOW WHEN YOUR LIFE GIVES YOU JOY Halleluiah!  You must know what? You must know when your life gives you joy.

"IF YOU ARE IN THIS FAITH YOU MUST KNOW WHEN YOUR LIFE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO GIVE YOU JOY. EVEN YOU GET ANGRY. YOU WILL BE TROUBLED IF YOU HAVE THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN YOU"

Even when you get what? Angry! You Will Be What?  Troubled! When the spirit of God is in you. But when the spirit of God is not in you, you will remain angry and do whatever thing you want to do because the spirit of God is not in you.

You can go to "Extremes” wherever you want, do whatever thing you want because you do not have the spirit of God in you. But here we have an anchor, Christ is our Anchor; Son of man is our Anchor.

I remember in those days, when we were smugglers. We carry goods from Nigeria to Cameroon, People can do things o. Our sheep used to have an anchor.

When there is turbulent in the ocean that we can ’t continue or go back, we will target the current of the ocean and then throw in the anchor of the ship; it will remain there.  The current will be dangling our ship.

Sometimes, we can stay four days, no sight, we could not see the bank of the river. When the thing become tough, sometimes our food will finish, we will eat raw food, groundnut, fish, and stock fish.

This beans you see so, we will open bag of beans, eat raw beans. That river that is salty, you will drink it anyhow. People that have Indian hemp, they will smoke the Indian hemp and sleep for a long time. Halleluiah!

"YOU WILL BE SERIOUSLY QUERYING WHAT IS HAPPENING IN YOU. YOU WILL BE CONVINCED THAT ALL IS NOT WELL WITHIN YOU.

YOU WILL BE GREATLY DISCOMFORTED BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT YET ATTAINED THAT WHICH YOU WANT TO BE OR THAT YOU ARE DRAWING BACKWARD. YOU WILL BE FEELING ANGRY."

As a Child of God you will be feeling angry because you are drawing backward. If you are not meeting up with the standard, you will be feeling angry if you are a child of God.

"IT IS JUST LIKE A CHILD IN SCHOOL WHO IS DOING WELL IN SCHOOL. ALL OF A SUDDEN, YOU MOVE FROM 5TH POSITION IN THE CLASS TO 10TH POSITION, FROM 10TH TO 20TH AND TO 30TH.

IF THIS PERSON CONTINUES TO BE HAPPY, YOU KNOW THAT THE PERSON IS NOT A STUDENT. THE PERSON IS NOT SERIOUS" Do You See it?

"WHEN A SERIOUS - MINDED STUDENT IS DISPLACED FROM HIS POSITION, HE WILL GET WORRIED. YOU WILL GET WORRIED. WHEN YOU WILL BE PRAYING TO DISPLACE MORE PEOPLE AND MOVE UP; AND YOU ARE SUDDENLY DISPLACED FROM YOUR POSITION, AND YOU REMAIN HAPPY? SUCH A PERSON IS NOT  A SERIOUS - MINDED STUDENT"

"THAT IS THE WAY IT IS WITH US BECAUSE WE ARE HEADING TO PERFECTION" We are heading to what? Perfection! We are climbing to the higher ground.

Song: A higher ground that I have found, Lord plant my feet on higher ground.

"WE ARE CLIMBING LOOKING FOR HIGHER GROUND EVERY DAY UNTIL WE GET TO THAT  LEVEL WE WILL GET TO WHERE THERE WILL BE  NO FEAR ANYMORE, NO MORE DOUBT, THEN YOU STAND THERE BECAUSE YOU HAVE GOTTEN TO YOUR DESTINATION POINT". Brethren, is it true? Yes Sir!

"BUT IF WHERE YOU ARE , THERE IS  STILL DOUBT AND FEAR AS TO WHETHER YOU WILL MAKE IT OR NOT, AND YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WHEN YOU HAVE NOT CLEARED THE FEAR, YOU HAVE NOT CLEARED THE DOUBT, IT THEN MEANS YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHEN YOU ARE IN GOD, YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE FALLEN AND THAT IS WHY THIS VOICE IS GOING FORTH. That is what?  Why this voice is going forth

"IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE ENTERED INTO CHRIST, YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHEN YOU GO OUT. YOU SHOULD KNOW WHAT IT TAKES TO COME INTO CHRIST AND WHAT IT TAKES TO GO OUT OF CHRIST".

WHAT IT WILL TAKE YOU TO ENTER INTO CHRIST IS IMPLICIT OBEDIENCE TO THE MESSAGE YOU HAVE RECEIVED. AT THE SAME TIME, WHAT IT WILL TAKE YOU TO GO OUT OF CHRIST IS YOUR DISOBEDIENCE TO THE MESSAGE YOU HAVE RECEIVED. THAT IS ALL.

What it takes to remain in Christ is total obedience, what it takes to go out of Christ is disobedience.

"IS THERE ANY OTHER THING?  THERE IS NO OTHER THING. Sure! Is there any other thing Brethren? There's no other thing.

"THE MESSAGE WE RECEIVED IS NOT DIFFERENT FROM THE ONE WE ARE HEARING NOW"

The messages we are receiving are they different from the ones we have heard before? No! It is not different. "GOD IS TESTIFYING EVEN FROM THE BIBLE THAT WE SHOULD RUN AWAY FROM SUBTLETY, CRAFTINESS AND ALL THESE THINGS BUT IF YOU GO AHEAD DECEIVING YOURSELF, YOU ARE COUNTING YOURSELF OUT OF GOD. YOU ARE NOW ENJOYING IN THE DEVIL ". AMEN.
