APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA
2ND BOOK OF PROPHET EZRA EXPLAINED PART 1 VOLUME 2 PREACHED ON SUNDAY 7TH MARCH 2021 AT THE BRIDAL LODGE, NSUGBE ANAMBRA STATE NIGERIA BY Apostle Peter Odoemena THE SON OF MAN THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY

Enough is enough. Idolaters in the Camp, this is the hour of manifestation of sons and daughters of God. Do you not know I have not come to bring peace but separation? Do you not know that our God, The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the God of separation? The author of separation.

ACTION TIME PART 1 (HUSBANDS AND WIVES) CAMP MEETING; preached on Tuesday, 30th December, 1997; Pg. 64 vs. 5

1

HAVE FAITH IN GOD

A man and his wife, and their two children that have been in the End Time as ministers, using their megaphone as equipment to be preaching everywhere called Me.

2.           And I referred them to our Pastor at the Post Office, who invited Apostle Kelechi. Eventually they got there, being End-timers. They sat down with them, while they exchanged views with the Scriptures and the with Messages and so on.

3.           The man told them the name of his tabernacle. He hails from Ughelli. And the wife is from somewhere in Delta State. And they had already been following this Message, even from the websites.

4.           What happened at last? The man said that he was thinking that one Moses in Lagos who calls himself saint Moses was the one, until he came across Apostle Peter Odoemena, THE SON OF MAN.

5.           He said that from that day, Himself and his wife and their two children recoiled to their home. The wife said she was prepared to die for the sake of the Faith of THE SON OF MAN, for she had never seen a man that shows no mercy to speaking the truth more than THE SON OF MAN.

6.           She said that THE SON OF MAN does not show any mercy to speaking the truth; and that she has never seen His kind; and the whole attributes of God are following Him.

7.           After staying with our Brethren, mainly Pastor Chizoba and Apostle Kelechi for many hours, they now volunteered even to pass the night with them, not willing to go again. Brethren now remembered the prophecy of old, “DO NOT FORGET SANBALLAT AND TOBIAH”

8.           When Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, heard of it, it grieved them exceedingly that there was come a man to seek the welfare of the children of Israel. [Nehemiah 2:10 KJV]

9.           But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye do? Will ye rebel against the king? [Nehemiah 2:19 KJV]

10.        1But it came to pass, that when Sanballat heard that we builded the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked the Jews. .... 7But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to bestopped, then they were very wroth, [Nehemiah 4:1 & 7]

11.        The man had earlier said that he has heard too many things about Apostle Peter Odoemena, both good and bad, not until he went to the websites and began to see different things altogether.

12.        They remembered the Voice that told us, “Towards the end, I show you a sign. All the end-timers who blasphemed this Faith and called us devils will begin to recognize this Faith and acknowledge it. They will be coming back, telling us that their coming back will help in spreading the Ministry more; and that they did not know in the beginning that they were deceived by some people, and that they have repented.” The Voice said, “Do not give them a place in your Fellowship. They are the Sanballat and Tobiah. They are the Moabites who have no inheritance in the Kingdom of Heaven, now and in the future generations.”

13.        3An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the Lord for ever: 4because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee. [Deuteronomy 23:3 – 4 KJV]

14.        Brethren remembered the promise; remembered the prophecies and remembered the Spoken Word and told them, “Nay! You go home. Go back to your denomination. We cannot.”

15.        Another person who called who hails from Imo State [one Stanley] was also directed to the Pastor in-charge, Pastor Mike Nwangwu. There he sat down with the man who has been following us in the websites.

16.        He moved away from one denomination to the other, and finally ended it in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints [the Mormons]. When he came into the Mormons, he said that he moved away from there and entered another group where we also have our Faith.

17.        All the groups he sojourned with, we have them here in our sermon books. All the avatars that appeared.

18.        Our Brothers espoused the whole thing to him and finally gave him a copy of the Great Sermon [2019 Revised Edition], where those ancient men and their doctrines appeared, including the Mormons.

19.        He was amazed, but his fear remained his wife. He told them that the wife saw the way he has believed and threatened him saying, “Be very sure that at the end, you do not subscribe to another faith other than this Mormons. Any day you do it, your marriage will break up. I will leave you and find my way.”

20.        You see the evil of women? The same thing that happened to our departed Elder, Ofodile. The wife was not ready to leave Sabbath [Musa of Nnobi], while the husband who brought her into it left it.

21.        That is why before he died that morning, he called her and said, “Have Faith in God.” Three times, he told her, “Have Faith in God.” He sat down in his chair and then joined the departed Saints. And the woman was left confused. Let us be very careful.

22.        Are we benefitting from this reading? You might be wondering why those who compiled the Bible omitted this Book; whether there was an evil they saw there.

23.        They never omitted it. This Book was only discovered a few years ago at the Dead Sea as a scroll, and then transcribed into Greek. It boiled down to be the Second Book of Ezra.

24.        Inside it, it was hidden from human view till the end time by Ezra himself, with the help of the Angel, for God said that it will not be revealed to the world, but to few individuals in the end. And these are the people to whom Paradise had already been designated.

25.        If we are not Paradise Designates, we will not come to this Truth. So, this truth is coming to you because you are already designated to Paradise.

26.        But you can say no. Gift is no gift until you accept it. You have every right to say no that you do not want it. The Giver will not force you to accept it. Is it not true?

27.        Does a person give you a gift and also beg you to accept it? If you know the value of the Gift, you accept it.

28.        26Behold, the time will come, that these tokens which I have told you will come to pass, and the bride will appear, and she, coming forth, will be seen, that now is withdrawn from the earth.

29.        27And whoever is delivered from the foresaid evils will see My wonders. 28For My son Jesus will be revealed...

30.        Just like the Holy Qur’an bore witness to this truth.

31.        158But Allah raised him ['Isa (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allah is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise. 159And there is none of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), but must believe in him ['Isa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), as only a Messenger of Allah and a human being], before his ['Isa (Jesus) or a Jew's or a Christian's] death (at the time of the appearance of the angel of death). And on the Day of Resurrection, he ['Isa (Jesus)] will be a witness against them. [THE HOLY QUR’AN, SURAH 4:158 – 159; Hilali-Khan]

32.        When Jesus (Upon whom be peace) comes, NOT EVERYONE WILL KNOW HIM TO BE THE TRUE JESUS. HIS ELECT AND THOSE CLOSE TO HIM WILL RECOGNIZE HIM THROUGH THE LIGHT OF BELIEF. IT WILL NOT BE SELF-EVIDENT SO THAT EVERYONE WILL RECOGNIZE HIM… [Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, 15th Letters Second Current]

33.        Before pondering over these traditions of the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him, regarding the advent of the Messiah and Mahdi, it must be kept in view that the Holy Quran as well as the traditions of the Holy Prophet are unanimous in their verdict that Jesus, son of Mary, has died his natural death. Further, the Holy Quran and the traditions of the Holy Prophet both are in unison that the dead never return to life in this transitory world of ours. Hence when it is narrated in the traditions that Jesus son of Mary will come, it should not be taken literally but rather to be understood in the metaphorical sense as has been interpreted by a scholar of great repute and regenerator of his century, Mohyyud Din IbnArabi, when he says: “His descent in later ages will be with a DIFFERENT body.” [TafsirAraisul Bayan, Vol. 1, p. 262]

34.        The Prophet Jesus (as), son of Mary, will definitely descend as a just judge and a just ruler. [Imam Nawawi, Commentary on Sahih Muslim]

35.        The Judgment Day will not take place until the Prophet Jesus (as), son of Mary, comes as a fair ruler and a just imam. [Sunan Ibn Majah]

36.        By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, the son of Mary (the Prophet Jesus [as]) will shortly descend among you people as a just ruler. [Sahih Bukhari].

37.        The Lord Jesus Christ is always revealed in every dispensation. This is the Name by which He shall be known. Did you get the Message?

38.        Whenever God will become a human being in the end time, look at the Name by which He will be identified with; “A virgin shall conceive and give birth to a son. And His Name shall be called Emmanuel.”

39.        14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. [Isaiah 7:14 KJV]

40.        In the Book of Matthew, New Testament, “His Name shall be called Jesus, for He shall deliver His people from their sins.”

41.        And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. [Matthew 1:21 KJV]

42.        Then when He was about to leave the scene, He told you, “I will never leave you comfortless. I am coming again to be with you.” And look at the manner in which I will come.

43.        18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. [John 14:18 – 19 KJV]

44.        I will come back in the Person of THE SON OF MAN to continue from where I stopped. And My Name shall be called the Almighty. He that was; He that is; He that is to come, the Almighty. Amen.

45.        I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty [John 1:8 KJV]

46.        27And whoever is delivered from the foresaid evils will see My wonders. 28For My son Jesus will be revealed with those who are with him,...Alleluia!

47.        He will be revealed with those who are with Him. Anybody who is not with Him is against Him. Will He be revealed with them? Never!

48.        Who is the Resurrected Body? There can never be the Resurrected Body without first death. Did you get the Message? Did He die? He died. Was he buried? He was buried. Did He resurrect? He resurrected. When He resurrected, did He present Himself to the people? Yes! As a human being? Yes! Sure and certain.

49.        3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; 4and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures: 5and that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: 6after that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. 7After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. 8And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. [1 Corinthians 15:3 – 8 KJV]

50.        Did He vanish into the Cloud as promised before their eyes? He was caught up in the Clouds of Heaven.

51.        9And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. [Acts 1:9 – 11 KJV]

52.        Did He promise to come back in the end time in the Clouds of Heaven? What is happening today? Is He that is with us today not the same that appeared that time? The same Person who appeared in the East is also the One who is in the West, uniting the two sticks together. Ezra is a Prophet of God. Ezra is a Prophet of God.

53.        240...The same Gospel, with the same thing, would take place in the evening time, just when the shadows are getting low. The same Gospel, the same Christ that lived in flesh back yonder at the beginning, on the Eastern people, shall live again in the Western people at the end time. “It shall be Light in the evening time.” [FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS by William Marrion Branham was delivered on Sunday morning, July 19, 1964, at the Branham Tabernacle in Jeffersonville, Indiana, U.S.A., Page 31 paragraph 240]

54.        If he had seen another person other than Jesus, the son of God, I would have queried him, for He is the One, the very Christ, Who was there before the world began, THE SON OF MAN.

55.        If he had seen Him as a spirit, I would have queried him. But he saw Him as a young man; a human being.

56.        28For My son Jesus will be revealed with those who are with him, and those who remain will rejoice within four hundred years.

57.        29After these years will My son Christ die, and all men who have life. 30And the world will be turned into the old silence for seven days,...Sure!!!...as in the former judgments; so that no man will remain.

58.        31And after seven days, the world, that yet does not awake, will be raised up, and that will die that is corrupt. 32And the earth will restore those who are asleep in her, and so will the dust those who dwell in silence, and the secret places will deliver those souls that were committed to them.

59.        33And the Most High will appear upon the seat of Judgment, and misery will pass away, and the long suffering will have an end; 34But only judgment will remain, truth will stand, and faith will wax strong; 35And the work will follow, and the reward will be shown, and the good deeds will be of force, and wicked deeds will bear no rule."

60.        13The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. [Revelation 20:13 NIV]

61.        36Then I said, "Abraham prayed first for the Sodomites, and Moses for the fathers who sinned in the wilderness; 37And Jesus after him for Israel in the time of Achan; 38And Samuel and David for the destruction; and Solomon for those who should come to the sanctuary; 39And Elijah for those who received rain; and for the dead, that he might live; 40And Hezekiah for the people in the time of Sennacherib; and many for many.

62.        41Even so now, seeing corruption is grown up, and wickedness increased, and the righteous have prayed for the ungodly; why will it not also be so now?"

63.        42He answered me, and said, "This present life is not the end where much glory abides; therefore they have prayed for the weak. 43But the Day of Doom will be the end of this time, and the beginning of the immortality to come, wherein corruption has past,

64.        44Intemperance is at an end, infidelity is cut off, righteousness is grown, and truth is sprung up. 45Then no man will be able to save him who is destroyed, nor to oppress him who has gotten the victory."

65.        46I answered then and said, "This is my first and last saying, that it had been better to not have given the earth to Adam; or else, when it was given to him, to have restrained him from sinning.

66.        47For what profit is it for men now in this present time to live in heaviness, and after death, to look for punishment? 48O you Adam, what have you done? For though it was you who sinned, you have not fallen alone, but all of us who come of you.

67.        49For what profit is it to us, if an immortal time is promised to us, whereas we have done the works that bring death? 50And that an everlasting hope is promised to us, whereas ourselves, being most wicked, are made vain?

68.        51And that there are laid up for us, dwellings of health and safety, whereas we have lived wickedly? 52And that the glory of the Most High is kept to defend those who have led a wary life, whereas we have walked in the most wicked ways of all?

69.        53And that there should be shown a Paradise, whose fruit endures forever, wherein is security and medicine, since we will not enter into it? 54(For we have walked in unpleasant places.) 55And that the faces of those who have used abstinence will shine above the stars, whereas our faces will be blacker than darkness?

70.        56For while we lived and committed iniquity, we did not consider that we should begin to suffer for it after death."

71.        57Then he answered me, and said, "This is the condition of the battle, which man who is born upon the earth will fight; 58That, if he is overcome, he will suffer as you have said; but if he gets the victory, he will receive the thing that I say. 59For this is the life whereof Moses spoke to the people while he lived, saying, 'Choose life, that you may live.' Amen.

The Voice said, “If I command you to do anything, do it because I have commanded you. Let the guilt be on Me. If you should be queried, give your reasons that THE SON OF MAN instructed you.” After all, your fate is hanging on no other but Me. Without the appearance of THE SON OF MAN, you were hell-bound to perish under the Mosaic laws. You could not have seen the separation. The separation line was hidden from you. You were all under the Mosaical laws until THE SON OF MAN appeared. In spite of the Bible you have been reading, in spite of Jesus you have been quoting, in spite of the Prophets and the Apostles, you were still hell-bound.

ONLY A FEW WILL BE SAVED

Chapter 3: TORAH, OLD TESTAMENT BIBLE (3): The Second Book of the prophet Ezra, who was captive in the land of the Medes, in the reign of Artaxerxes. In the thirtieth year after the ruin of the city, I was in Babylon, and lay troubled upon my bed, and my thoughts came up over my heart; for I saw the desolation of Zion. ←EzraNehemiah→

2.           2 Ezra 7:60Nevertheless, they did not believe him, nor yet the prophets after him, no, nor Me who has spoken to them, 61That there should not be such heaviness in their destruction, as will be joy over those who are persuaded to salvation."

3.           62I answered then, and said, "I know, Lord, that the Most High is called Merciful, in that He has mercy upon those who have not yet come into the world, 63And upon those also who turn to His law; 64And that He is patient, and suffers long, those who have sinned, as His creatures;

4.           65And that He is bountiful, for He is ready to give where it needs; 66And that He is of great mercy, for He multiplies more and more mercies to those who are present, and who are past, and also to those who are to come. 67For if He will not multiply His mercies, the world would not continue with those who inherit therein.

5.           68And He pardons; for if He did not do so of His goodness, that those who have committed iniquities might be eased of them, the ten thousandth part of men should not remain living.

6.           70And being judge, if He should not forgive those who are cured with His word, and put out the multitude of contentions, 70There should be very few left peradventure in an innumerable multitude."

7.           2 Ezra 8: 1And he answered me, saying, "The Most High has made this world for many, but the world to come, for few.

8.           1And he answered me, saying, "The Most High has made this world for many, but the world to come, for few.

9.           1And he answered, saying, "The Most High has made this world for many, but the world to come, for few.

10.        When Jesus was asked a question, “Will many be saved?” What did He say? He said, “Only a few shall be saved.” Though you may be many in the world; many are called, but few are chosen. He said, “But strive that you may enter, for the gate is very narrow. And many are trying to enter but they will never.” You do not delay over it.

11.        The world is created for many people, but the future world where we are striving to go is for few people. Paradise is for few. If you have this at the back of your mind, you will know that THE SON OF MAN has never deceived you.

12.        Many are called; few are chosen. Why not try to be in the few? Why not try? Challenge yourself, “Even if there will be two person, I am in the number. If it turns out to be one person, I am the one.”

13.        That the whole world will be saved, I want you to disprove it. Disprove this prophecy. Disprove Jesus Christ. Disprove all the prophets.  I hope you are hearing what we are saying.

14.        This present world was made so that many will partake thereof, but the world that is to come; which is better; wherein there is eternal life is for few.

15.        It is for the Little Flock who will do the Father’s will. It is only for few. It is for a little Flock of few sheep who will do the will of God; who will be obedient; whose lives will be one with that of God; Who will not be objects of offence to God.

16.        The world is made for many people, but Paradise is for few.

17.        2I will tell you a similitude, Ezra: As when you ask the earth, it will say to you, that it gives much mould whereof earthen vessels are made, but little dust that gold comes of; even so is the course of this present world.

18.        3There are many created, but few will be saved." There are many human beings that were created, but only a few will be saved.

19.        I gave you a Message, ALLOW YOUR FAITH IN CHRIST TO DISMISS YOUR FEARS. Let your Faith in Christ dismiss your fears that you are not entering Paradise. You MUST have a solid Faith in Christ. And that faith is your sure anchor which can never fail you.

20.        Automatically it dismisses all fears that you may not be in the number. I will stand up and say, “I AM ALREADY THERE. I AM IN THE NUMBER. I AM ONE OF THEM BY FAITH, FOR I KNOW WHO I AM. I KNOW WHO I AM. I KNOW WHO I AM.”

21.        If you are walking with God and walking in the light of the truth, do you not know who you are? If it is one person, I am the one. Two, I am the one. Five, I am the one.

22.        By faith, I am there already, for there is nothing querying me or querying my belief. Nothing, standing between me and my God. Nothing!

23.        I have heard His Voice and I am not disobedient. What else will bring that unnecessary fear into my heart.

24.        If there is fear in you, it is because of your unbelief, your wicked heart AND your inability to pattern after godliness because there are many things you still want to enjoy in the world. There are many things you value more than your life in Paradise with God.

25.        This world is created for many, but only a few will be saved. Only few! Of all that are planted in the farm, do they all bear good fruits? What is done to that one which did not bring forth good fruits?

26.        It is cut down and destroyed so that it will suffer the reward allotted to it. But it was given equal opportunity with other crops. Is it a lie Brethren?

27.        2I will tell you a similitude, Ezra: As when you ask the earth, it will say to you, that it gives much mould whereof earthen vessels are made,...

28.        Do you know what an earthen vessel is? God has stored His treasures in earthen vessels. Are we not earthen vessels?

29.        7But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. [2 Corinthians 4:7-8 KJV]

7However, we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in [FRAIL, HUMAN] VESSELS OF EARTH, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves. [2 Corinthians 4:7-8 AMP]

30.         [7]But this precious treasure—this light and power that now shine within us—is held in a PERISHABLE CONTAINER, that is, in our weak bodies. Everyone can see that the glorious power within must be from God and is not our own. [2 Corinthians 4:7 LB]

31.        And among the earthen vessels, there are vessels of honour. And there are vessels of dishonour. Those vessels that were made for dishonour were made of the dust of the earth, but only a few of them turned out to be gold. Is it a lie? 

32.        2I will tell you a similitude, Ezra: As when you ask the earth, it will say to you, that it gives much mould whereof earthen vessels are made, but little dust that gold comes of; even so is the course of this present world.

33.        3There are many created, but few will be saved."WILL! FUTURE!

34.        4SO I ANSWERED AND SAID, "THEN SWALLOW DOWN UNDERSTANDING, O MY SOUL, AND DEVOUR WISDOM. 5For you have agreed to give ear, and are willing to prophesy; for you no longer have space than only to live.

35.        6O Lord, if You do not suffer Your servant, that we may pray before You, and You give us seed to our heart, and culture to our understanding, that fruit may come of it; how will each man live who is corrupt, who bears the place of a man?

36.        7For You are alone, and we all [are] one workmanship of Your hands, as You have said. 8For when the body is now fashioned in the mother’s womb, and You give it members, Your creature is preserved in fire and water, and Your workmanship endures Your creature for nine months, which is created in her.

37.        9But that which keeps and is kept will both be preserved; and when the time comes, the womb preserved delivers up the things that grew in it.

38.        10For You have commanded out of the parts of the body, that is to say, out of the breasts, milk to be given, which is the fruit of the breasts, 11That the thing which is fashioned may be nourished for a time, until You dispose it to Your mercy.

39.        12You brought it up with Your righteousness, and nurtured it in Your law, and reformed it with Your judgment. 13And You will mortify it as Your creature, and quicken it as Your work.

40.        14If therefore You will destroy him who, with so great labor, was fashioned, it is an easy thing to be ordained by Your commandment, that the thing which was made might be preserved.

41.        15Now therefore, Lord, I will speak; touching man in general, You know best; but touching Your people, for whose sake I am sorry;16And for Your inheritance, for whose cause I mourn; and for Israel, for whom I am heavy; and for Jacob, for whose sake I am troubled;

42.        17Therefore I will begin to pray before You for myself and for them; for I see the falls of us who dwell in the land.18BUT I HAVE HEARD THE SWIFTNESS OF THE JUDGE WHICH IS TO COME. He is coming quickly [swiftly]

43.        12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. [Revelation 22:12 – 13 KJV]

44.        19Therefore hear my voice, and understand my words, and I will speak before You." This is the beginning of the words of Ezra, before he was taken up; and I said,

45.        20"O Lord, You who dwell in everlastingness, who beholds from above things in the heaven and in the earth; 21Whose Throne is inestimable; whose glory may not be comprehended; before whom the hosts of angels stand with trembling,

46.        22Whose service is conversant in wind and fire; whose word is true, and sayings constant; whose commandment is strong, and ordinance fearful;23Whose look dries up the depths, and indignation makes the mountains to melt away; which the truth witnesses;

47.        24O hear the prayer of Your servant, and give ear to the petition of Your creature.25For while I live, I will speak, and so long as I have understanding, I will answer.26O do not look upon the sins of Your people; but on those who serve You in truth.

48.        27Do not regard the wicked inventions of the heathen, but the desire of those who keep Your testimonies in afflictions.28Do not think upon those who have walked feignedly before You; but remember them, which, according to Your will, have known Your fear.

49.        29Let it not be Your will to destroy those who have lived like beasts; but to look upon those who have clearly taught Your law.

50.        30Take no indignation at those who are deemed worse than beasts; but love those who always put their trust in Your righteousness and glory.31For we and our fathers languish of such diseases; but because of us sinners, You will be called Merciful.

51.        32For if You have a desire to have mercy upon us, You will be called Merciful, to us namely, who have no works of righteousness.

52.        33For the just, who have many good works laid up with You, will, out of their own deeds, receive reward.34For what is man, that You should take displeasure at him? Or what is a corruptible generation, that You should be so bitter toward it?

53.        35For in truth, there is no man among those who are born, but he has dealt wickedly; and among the faithful there are none who have not done amiss.36For in this, O Lord, Your righteousness and Your goodness will be declared, if You are merciful to those who do not have the confidence of good works."

54.        37Then He answered me, and said, "Some things you have spoken aright, and according to your words it will be.38For indeed I will not think on the disposition of those who have sinned before death, before judgment, before destruction;

55.        39But I will rejoice over the disposition of the righteous, and I will also remember their pilgrimage, and the salvation, and the reward, that they will have. Amen!

56.        40As I have spoken now, so will it come to pass. Amen!41For as the husbandman sows much seed upon the ground, and plants many trees, and yet the thing that is sown good in his season does not come up, neither does all that is planted take root; even so is it of those who are sown in the world; they will not all be saved."

57.        Are we following this Message at all? Remember, it is revealed to you because you are Paradise-bound. Paradise Designates!

58.        Have you not been hearing from THE SON OF MAN’s mouth, “I am not promising to save the world. I have not come to save the world. Although I talk to you as if all of you hearing Me here will be saved, I know it will not be so. But I am labouring daily among you to see whether I can save some. Let no one ever fool you into believing that all of you staring at Me will be saved. You are watching me. You know Me. You know My dwelling place. You can recite My Messages. That can never give you salvation.”

59.        Knowing THE SON OF MAN; rehearsing His Messages; saying, “I believe” will never give you salvation. What will give you salvation is obedience to His Word; which means patterning after Him. No more. No less.

60.        But how many will do it? Only a hand-picked few. A hand-picked minority chosen by election of Grace. The rest will be swallowed up by the glamour of iniquity, for the devil has made evil very glamorous.

61.        The devil has adorned the way of mankind with evil. He has adorned the ways of evil in the eyes of men and women of this world so that they will no longer cherish or accommodate anybody that has chosen to walk on this narrow path.

62.        39[Iblîs (Satan)] said: "O my Lord! Because you misled me, I shall indeed adorn the path of error for them (mankind) on the earth, and I shall mislead them all. 40"Except Your chosen, (guided) slaves among them." 41(God) said: "This is the Way which will lead straight to Me." 42"Certainly, you shall have no authority over My slaves, except those who follow you of the Ghâwîn (Mushrikûn and those who go astray, criminals, polytheists, and evil-doers, etc.). [Surah 15:39 – 42 Hilali-Khan]

63.        It is a very narrow Path to pattern after Christ very narrow Path, not meant for everybody, but for the well-faring men and women.

64.        But those who are being covered by the shadows of this world and enjoy the fun of this world will never ever cross that narrow Gate. In short, I call it the eye of a needle. The eye of a needle.

65.        The eye of a needle will expand when the righteous wants to come in, but when the ungodly approaches that Gate, it will narrow more and more so that the ungodly will never make the attempt of crossing it.

66.        Note it! As the farmer plants every kind of crop in the farm, does his best to make sure they produce good fruits, and at the end of the day, he does not harvest from all. Is it not true?

67.        Although they were well tended and looked after, diligently he watered and fenced the place, and did the weeding, expecting a good harvest, but you notice that at the end, not all will bring forth good fruits, for there are too many that will not produce a single fruit. True or false?

68.        I threatened to cut down this lemon behind our house because it has been growing all these years without bearing fruits. Immediately I threatened to cut it down this year, it is like it heard My Voice.

69.        The tree heard My Voice. The tree did not want to die. Of all the trees planted there, you can see that one producing the greatest number of fruits ever, thereby escaping My wrath.

70.        Seeing that the tree I wanted to cut down for not producing fruits has now produced fruits more than the old ones, have I any justifiable ground to cut it down again? So it is with all human beings. To God be the Glory.

71.        Did you get this Message? Do you not know this lemon tree here? Were you not here when I threatened to cut it down. As if it heard My voice, see what it is having there. I will be stupid to cut it down.

72.        And the fruits appear to be bigger, much more beautiful and admirable than those that have been there. You see, the tree did not want to die. The tree ran for its life, and has now escaped.

73.        So, if you that has been bearing bad fruits or that has not been producing any; you have been empty, for which cause emptiness has been ascribed to you;

74.        You are being threatened every day because you are empty, if you begin to bear fruits now and convince the owner that you are no longer barren and that you will never be barren again, you will bear good fruits, and your fruits will abide.

75.        Nobody has any justifiable ground to sentence you to hell. If you that has been finding it difficult all these years to pattern after Christ; you have been living in the wrong and living in the dark, even when light is being thrown to you, if you can change your mind and make a U-turn today, and begin to pattern after godliness, will God be justified to sentence you to hell. Impossible!

76.        God will use you as a living example of the barren that is now blessed with children, and of the fruitless tree that is now bearing fruits because it heard the Voice of the Husbandman.

77.        41For as the husbandman sows much seed upon the ground, and plants many trees, and yet the thing that is sown good in his season does not come up, neither does all that is planted take root; even so is it of those who are sown in the world; they will not all be saved."

78.        I know many that will come here from now will like to know which tree that heard the Voice of THE SON OF MAN. This is true. I have corrected the error that happened in the days of Jesus Christ.

79.        He came across a fig tree, intending to eat of the fruit thereof. When they got there, they could not get any fruit on the fig tree. He spoke to the fig tree, “I was feeling hungry and I was coming to you thinking I will pluck at least one fruit from you and eat to quench my hunger. Seeing that you could not produce any, I place a curse upon you this day, “From this day henceforth, Let no human being eat of your fruit.””

80.        They continued their journey. While they were coming back, it was Peter who told Him that the tree had already withered. And then turned to the Lord Jesus and said to Him, “Master, can you observe the tree you cursed while we were going for not producing fruit? Lo, it is withered.”

81.        The Lord said, “Are you astonished? Is it a wonder to you? If you can have faith like a mustard seed, you can do more than this. You can even say to the mountain, “Remove and enter the sea” and it will be done.”

82.        So, do not ever joke with the Word of God that comes to you, especially when the Word is adverse. A tree heard the adverse Voice and repented and started bearing the best fruits.

83.        But the other one heard the Voice and said, “He is the Lord. Let him do whatever pleases Him.” And he withered. Every tree in the Bible is a semblance of a human being.

84.        We are planted here like trees. Any one that does not bear good fruits MUST be hewed down, for the axe is now at the stem of the tree to hew us down if we refuse to produce good fruits.

85.        So, every human being on earth is planted like a tree. And any tree that does not produce good fruits MUST be hewed down.

86.        An Igbo adage says that it is only a tree that hears that it will be hewed down and it stands where it is. But this lemon tree heard that it will be hewed down, it heard the Voice of the Husbandman that said that is old and no longer productive.”

87.        The tree said, “God forbid that I should be hewed down.” Immediately, the whole branches of the tree were covered with fruits. It is running last and it is coming first. And its fruits turned out to be more beautiful than the rest of the trees.

88.        So, the tree has potency and is also bigger than the rest of the trees. So, show that you have strength and that you are wise and intelligent.

89.        The LORD is using this tree to type our life here in this Family. Today can be your own day when you will hear the Voice that will activate the right living in your life, to begin to bear good fruits that will abide so that you will not be given a portion with the unbelievers.

90.        But have it at the back of your mind that no matter how I preach, only a few shall be saved. Try to be AMONG the few. Try to be in the number. Do not look back. Do not ever say that you are waiting for your father or your mother or your sibling.

91.        41For as the husbandman sows much seed upon the ground, and plants many trees, and yet the thing that is sown good in his season does not come up, neither does all that is planted take root; even so is it of those who are sown in the world; they will not all be saved."

92.        42I answered then and said, "If I have found grace, let me speak. 43As the husbandman’s seed perishes, if it does not come up, and does not receive Your rain in due season; or if too much rain comes, and corrupts it;

93.        44Even so a man also perishes, who is formed with Your hands, and is called Your own image, because You are like him, for whose sake You have made all things, and likened him to the husbandman’s seed.

94.        45Do not be wroth with us, but spare Your people, and have mercy upon Your own inheritance; for You are merciful to Your creature."

95.        Brethren can we notice one peculiarity there? For every question Ezra asked, God supplied four to five answers to get him convinced that He is not a wicked God.

96.        Can you see? May be you have not observed it. When the questionnaire was going on, Ezra thought he was winning his case, but look at the way God was reacting to all those questions. God never rebuked him. Even where He went wrong, the LORD corrected him.

97.        But watch the answers God is giving him and see whether God gave Ezra any unreasonable answer. All the answers were according to truth, using nature which eyes can see to reply to all the questions.

98.        And Ezra never refuted any. There was no reply God gave to him which he refuted. We can see the man that asked the greatest number of questions, even more than Job, Jeremiah and Jonah.

99.        And most of these questions he asked oftentimes agitate our minds. God had already supplied answers to them, especially as pertaining to saving few. Brethren is there any lie there?

100.     Has there not been any question that was asked here which you also ask in your mind? You equally pray the type of prayers he prayed and also make the same request.

101.     This is to make it clear to you that God is the One who speaks and His Word does not come back to Him void. His Word is yea and Amen.

102.     We use to sing with it: [Your Word is yea and Amen. His Word is yea and Amen.] Period! If you like believe. If you do not want to believe, you stray away. But what will make you not to believe? Were you in this world when the world was made? Since you know everything, do you know this one?

THE SON OF MAN has been revealed from all scriptural and prophetic manifestations. We are sure and certain that He is the Promised Christ that will come in the end-time and no other. However, where you do not believe in Him, He does not hold it against you. Keep on waiting for one that will come who might be greater than Him. But as for Me, I have looked everywhere, I can see no other coming.  If one is coming, I will inform you, but no other is coming. And you can never go higher than where you are. For that reason, where you are now calls for sober reflection.

ARE YOU THE PROMISED ONE TO COME OR DO WE WAIT FOR ANOTHER? VOL 2; preached on Sunday 26th August, 2012; Pg. 128 vs. 65 – 66

THE WILL OF GOD [1]

Do not be wroth with us, but spare Your people, and have mercy upon Your own inheritance; for You are merciful to Your creature."

2.           46Then He answered me, and said, "Things present are for the present, and things to come, for such as are to come. 47For you come far short that you should be able to love My creature more than I; but I have often times drawn near you, and to it, but never to the unrighteous. Amen!

3.           God is near to the righteous. The man [Ezra] appears to be loving his people more than God. And God is now querying him for that. There is a way you will be talking about your people, your people and I will be looking at you as a mad man.

4.           You love your people more than God. You love your people more than yourself. Save yourself from this untoward generation, not your people. You first. Others will follow.

5.           You first. The change begins with me, and extends to you, for the person that splits the kolanut takes a lobe first. Is it a lie Brethren?

6.           I cannot, because of My foolish people who are recalcitrant begin to disobey God; and permit them to make me God’s enemy. Will they save Me?

7.           Your people will make you to become God’s enemy. You disobey God because of your people, because you are crying for your people. You are not happy because of what is happening in your father’s family. You will enter into sorrow, making God an unjust God. Any seed a man soweth, that he must reap.

8.           Why is it that the evil that is in Promise is always used as an example? Did he come with any other person into this house? He knows himself. Another thing is what is happening in his family at Aba. Are you responsible for that?

9.           Upon the fact that I told him, “The headache is not your own. It belongs to the person who committed the evil. Were you the one that sent him to go and do it? Are you the person that sent him?”

10.        Anybody who is sympathizing with the wicked will share in the punishment of the wicked. That is the Will of God. Is it a lie Brethren?

11.        48In this also you are marvelous before the Most High; 49In that you have humbled yourself, as it becomes to you, and have not judged yourself worthy to be much glorified among the righteous. Amen!!!

12.        50For many great miseries will be done to those who, in the latter time, will dwell in the world, because they have walked in great pride. Amen!!!

13.        Great Miseries await those in the end time Whose hearts will be infatuated with pride and haughtiness, envy and jealousy, shadows of the world.

14.        51But understand for yourself, and seek out the glory for such who are like you. 51For to you, Paradise is opened, the Tree of Life is planted, the time to come is prepared, plenteousness is made ready, a city is built, and rest is allowed, indeed, perfect goodness and wisdom.

15.        53The root of evil is sealed up from you, weakness and the moth are hidden from you, and corruption has fled into Hell to be forgotten; Amen!!!

16.        54Sorrows have passed, and in the end, the treasure of immortality is shown. Alleluia!!!

17.        55And therefore ask no more questions concerning the multitude of those who perish. 56For when they had taken liberty, they despised the Most High, thought scorn of His law, and forsook His ways.

18.        Put your hands together for God. Have they not been given the opportunity that I should kill myself crying and sorrowing; remembering my siblings? Where is my name?

19.        Though one riseth from the dead to talk to them, do you think they will believe? Repeat that place and see whether it is not the nature of the world, even our relations.

20.        55And therefore ask no more questions concerning the multitude of those who perish. 56For when they had taken liberty, they despised the Most High, thought scorn of His law, and forsook His ways.

21.        57Moreover, they have trodden down His righteous, 58And said in their heart, that there is no God; indeed, and that knowing, they must die. Yes!!

22.        59For as the things aforesaid will receive you, so thirst and pain are prepared for them; for it was not His will that men should come to nothing; 60But those who are created have defiled the name of Him who made them,... Sure!!!...and were unthankful to Him who prepared life for them.

23.        Human being committed suicide. It is not the will of God that man should perish, but it is because of man and his self-inflicted disobedience. Any contradiction?

24.        You are Paradise Designates. That is why the hidden Book, according to God’s instruction, is revealed to you. There is no other group under the sun that will know about this truth.

25.        And how it comes into My hand beats your imagination hollow. How I have been gathering all these ancient documents, hidden since all the ages, promised to be revealed in the end time when men shall run to and fro, knowledge and travel will increase, when there will be real famine of the Word of God upon the earth.

26.        Is there no famine of the Word of God upon the earth? But are you suffering from the famine? You are greatly enriched, for the word had already been stored for you in due season. Amen!

27.        Remember, this is our studio. We are transmitting to the entire world from here. Why not count yourself a privileged person that you are a part of the people here on earth fulfilling the real will of God for your day?

28.        God using you as one of the instrument to transmit the Message to the whole world. How will it sound tomorrow if the world will hear your voice through this transmission studio; your voice will go round the whole world; and in the end you miss Paradise?

29.        The whole world will hear your Voice as you are reading it; hear the Explanations thereof; your voice will go round the whole world, with your name known all over and in the end, you will be missing in the kingdom of Heaven? What will you say happened to you? What will I say happened to me? One who is inside the studio talking and working?

30.        When you listen to the man who is echoing from the Radio Sapientia, you may not know that he is the only one there talking. You will think that a crowd is there or that he is in the football field.

31.        He is not in the football field, but he is describing all the matches, all the teams, all the players and so on. And you are rejoicing. Everywhere is hot. One Man! This is because He knows what He is doing.

32.        Everybody is depending on Him. He knows the implications of fooling His audience into believing lies. So, He guards against error.

33.        This is where the whole world is pinning their hope. You would not know the response until next week or after today.

34.        The whole world will be calling My line again, “SON OF MAN! You have released another bombshell consolidating our Faith, not that we doubted you, but every ancient manuscript confirms you to be the very Avatar of our day, as Hazrat Mahdi, vested with authority to reveal all these secrets to those that are heavenly bound. Paradise Designates.” Amen.

35.        59For as the things aforesaid will receive you,... That is the promises for the righteous will say, “Welcome My daughter. Welcome My son.” Oh! Fear not little Flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you His Kingdom.

36.        Am I making sense? We have that boldness to come there and enter freely because we do that which is right in His sight. Even if we falter, we go on our knees, for there is no faithful man that falters not. There is no righteous man that falters not. That is the difference between us and those hardened sinners there.

37.        When they falter, they continue faltering. They challenge God. They even pose with the things they should be ashamed of. Their faces can never blush. They can never blush their faces. They cannot cry and weep for their iniquities.

38.        That is the difference between the children of God; the children of the Most High and children of the devil who have been hardened by the glamour of iniquity.

39.        59For as the things aforesaid will receive you, so thirst and pain are prepared for them; for it was not His will that men should come to nothing;...

40.        You see what God has prepared for evil doers. Remember it is not God’s Will that any should go that place. That is why the Bible said in Revelation when they settled them there, “Go there and see Hell and join in hell with the devil that deceived you”, for hell was meant to punish the devil, and for those who will hear his voice and follow them.

41.        And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. [Revelation 19:20 KJV]

42.        9And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 19And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. [Revelation 20:9 – 10 KJV]

43.        The devil knowing that it is a place of torment vowed he will never go alone. He now adorned the way of mankind with disobedience, with wickedness, made the ways of evil to look very very glamorous in the eyes of people so that he can pull the whole world into it.

44.        22And Shaitân (Satan) will say when the matter has been decided: "Verily, God promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you, but I betrayed you. I had no authority over you except that I called you, so you responded to me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in associating me (Satan) as a partner with God (by obeying me in the life of the world). Verily, there is a painful torment for the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.)." [Surah 14:22 Hilali-Khan]

45.        Who will escape? The Prophet Mohammed Raheem [pbuh] said, “Only those Allah had already handpicked from the beginning and shielded with Election of Grace.” The Grace of God. Election of Grace. And these are the people that walk by Faith and not by sight.

46.        They will be the people of Faith because in the end, when they shall be made manifest, Faith will no longer be seen upon the earth. When THE SON OF MAN shall come, shall He find Faith?

47.        I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. NEVERTHELESS, WHEN THE SON OF MAN COMETH, SHALL HE FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH? [Luke 18:8 KJV]

48.        Then He came, looked for Faith, but there was no Faith. He started building Faith in those whom he is revealed with, for whenever He is revealed, there are people that will be revealed alongside with Him. Whenever He will be glorified, they will be glorified with Him. Is it not the promise? If you suffer with Me, you reign with Me.

49.        12if we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: [2 Timothy 2:12 KJV]

50.        60But those who are created have defiled the name of Him who made them, and were unthankful to Him who prepared life for them.

51.        61And therefore is My judgment now at hand. 62I have not shown these things to all men, but to you, and a few like you. "Alleluia!!!

52.        I have not shown these things to all men, for all men do not have our Faith. I have not shown all these amazing truths to all men and women in the world, but to you few members of My Family.

53.        I promised that if the politics I witnessed in Onitsha [in GTC] will continue, definitely I will severe My Family from among them, take them to My House, prepare them in My Home and take them away.

54.        That I am appearing here from time to time is because of friends and well-wishers, loved ones that travel long distances to be here with us.

55.        But now, what have I done at the end? I have co-opted them into My Family. They are now bona fide members of My Family, that I may bless all of them at the same time.

56.        And that is why, if you watch all these ones that are already adopted, these are the people that are helping Me in this Ministry in one way or the other; even in the spreading of the Good News.

57.        They are financing it, making sure that THE SON OF MAN is not wearied down; is not discouraged or dismayed in any form or shape. Even without waiting for My request, they are always there, for they know that this salvation has become a Family Mission.

58.        A Family Assignment of which they are part and parcel. And whenever we get to the end, all that stood behind this salvation mission will line up behind THE SON OF MAN as those that supported the move, using their lives, using their talents, using their time, using their money in any form or shape.

59.        They will never go unrewarded. They will be rewarded with THE SON OF MAN. In short, they will be the first THE SON OF MAN will crown.

60.        We saw it earlier. SON OF MAN; the young man in their midst, putting crowns on them; crowning them because they laboured with Him. No matter where they are. I do not care the country where they are. They are My co-labourers.

61.        But to the rest, they have been swallowed up by the shadows of this world. There is nothing concerning this Ministry that gives them concern anymore. They do not encourage Me by words. They do not write Messages. They do not finance it. They do not spread the good tidings.

62.        Rather, they have become discouragement to others. God knows all of them.

63.        62I have not shown these things to all men, but to you, and a few like you." Sure!!! Remember what I told you. It is not for everybody. It is for a few. And those people must be like you. Few individuals. Not everybody. I will show where he was warned to hide it from human view, even if he dies.

64.        Then I answered and said, 63"Behold, O Lord, now You have shown me the multitude of the wonders, which You will begin to do in the last times; but at what time, You have not shown me."

65.        He answered me then, and said, "Measure the time diligently in itself; and when you see part of the signs past,...

66.        What? When you see part of the sign coming to pass, begin to know that the time actually is at hand.

67.        Jesus told them, “When you see enemies encompass about Jerusalem, know that the day promised has come. Let he that is on the mountain never come back. If you are on the hill, do not come back. If you are at the market do not come back.”

68.        43For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, 44and shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation. ...

69.        20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter there into. 22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. [Luke 19:43 – 44 & 21:20 22 KJV]

70.        Notice the time. That was what the man wanted to know. ...but at what time, You have not shown me."... When will all these things come to pass? Who and who will be here? This is to enable him take precaution because to be forewarned is to be forearmed.

71.        When you see all the signs that I am going to show you now; part of them; not all of them, coming to pass, know that the time is at hand.

72.        An Igbo adage says the savour of a popular soup seasoning signals that the bitter leaf soup is almost ready. Is it a lie Brethren?

73.        Commendation of the soup will be coming. And you will see the cook tasting the soup as a confirmation, while twisting her head in admiration of a job well done.

74.        So when you see signs that were foretold coming to pass know that the D-day is at hand. You are supposed to gird up your loins and wait for it.

75.        63"Behold, O Lord, now You have shown me the multitude of the wonders, which You will begin to do in the last times; but at what time, You have not shown me."

76.        2 Ezra 9: 1He answered me then, and said, "Measure the time diligently in itself; and when you see part of the signs past, which I have told you before,... Did he say all the signs? He said, “PART OF THE SIGNS.”

77.        When Jesus said that you will hear about rumours of war, earthquakes, diseases and pestilences, He said that these are just like early labour pains. The end is not yet come. Nations rising against nations. Wars and rumours of wars. This is not yet the end.

78.        But the Gospel of the Kingdom MUST be preached throughout all the world in all the languages of the world as a witness against the whole world. Nobody will have excuse to give.

79.        Then you know that after the going round of the Gospel cometh the end.

80.        6And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

81.        7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.8All these are the beginning of sorrows. ...

82.        14And 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 24:6 – 8, 14 KJV]

83.        Then William Branham the Prophet came and said, “I will now show you the last sign. And the last sign is the Elohim standing in the midst of the Bride in human form. The last sign is THE SON OF MAN.”

84.        Any day you see THE SON OF MAN, who will come in the Clouds of Heaven, with the Cloud over him in the form of a rainbow, manifesting all the attributes of God, anywhere you are, know that your life is in danger. Run for your life, for it is finished.

85.        Then the next thing you will see is the burning of Sodom and Gomorrah, which is the world we are in.

86.        105... He said, "A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and there will be no sign given to that wicked and adulterous generation..." ...

87.         110.... Now watch what taken place before judgment. Now He's going to send a sign to the generation just before the burning time. There's no more water; but what, this time? Fire. The judgments of God going to be fire. And what was it Sodom received?....

88.        114... There's his sign. There's the sign to the church, the called-out church. A man. A man! Human flesh, eating veal chops, cornbread, and drinking milk. Did He do it? Was it God? See if it isn't. Look in your Bible; see if it don't show "Elohim"---Elohim, the self-existing one, Elohim in human flesh. What's it a sign of? Elohim back in the bride, human flesh again in the last days doing the same thing. Where's it at? There's your sign for the last days.[THE SIGNS OF HIS COMING. Preached on Saturday, the 7th of April 1962 at the Church of Faith in Cleveland, Tennessee, U.S.A. Paragraphs 105, 110, 114]

89.        And THE SON OF MAN said, “Expect no other sign” in the Message in 2012 titled, IT IS FINISHED. I have manifested all the signs and all the attributes. Where then is the basis for doubt. What is left?

90.        Know it of a surety, you are now standing on the threshold of the termination of an age that will terminate abruptly and on a disastrous note. I am going to stir up trouble everywhere. I am going to stir up and pour in diseases and pestilences, making it impossible for people to repent.

91.        From now henceforth, the righteous will continue in His righteousness, and the wicked in his wickedness. Two pathways. The sheep and the goat.

92.        So, begin now to judge yourself. I do not believe that God brought somebody into this house to destroy the person, but you will destroy yourself.

93.        God can never bring somebody closest to Himself to serve His interest, only to destroy that person. Unless that person had already made up his mind not to obey. That’s all!

Please pay attention. If you miss it, you have missed it all. This is the last visitation. After Me cometh no other. If another will come, which shape will he assume? What will he preach? For nothing is left but the translation of this immortal body which will take place in a twinkling of an eye.

THE WILL OF GOD [2]

Behold, O Lord, now You have shown me the multitude of the wonders, which You will begin to do in the last times; but at what time, You have not shown me." Yes!!!

2.           2 Ezra 9: 1He answered me then, and said, "Measure the time diligently in itself; and when you see part of the signs past, which I have told you before, 2Then you will understand, that it is the very same time, wherein the Highest will begin to visit the world which He made. Alleluia!

3.           From that time, the Highest will begin to visit the world which He made; which He created. And I told you that there has never been any dispensation where Peter Odoemena never appeared, but in different Names and in different natures.

4.           He has been visiting. He said, “This is not the first time I have appeared. I have been appearing and appearing.” Have you not been hearing it?

5.           2 Ezra 9: 1He answered me then, and said, "Measure the time diligently in itself; and when you see part of the signs past, which I have told you before, 2Then you will understand, that it is the very same time, wherein the Highest will begin to visit the world which He made.

6.           3Therefore when there will be seen earthquakes and uproars of the people in the world; 4Then you will well understand, that the Most High spoke of those things from the days that were before you, even from the beginning.

7.           So, it is not only documented in the Epistles. Can you see it in this ancient manuscript? The same thing Jesus repeated, showing that the person that was seen there by Ezra was My son, Jesus; the Son of God. Is it not true?

8.           What He said there is what He said in the days of the Epistles according to Matthew.

9.           5For as all that is made in the world has a beginning and an end, and the end is manifest;... Whatever that has a beginning must have an end. This Ministry started one day. It will terminate one day. Have we not been hearing it?

10.        Jesus had a beginning. He had an end. But Christ has no beginning of days, nor ending of days. Salvation has a beginning. Salvation must have an end.

11.        6Even so, the times also of the Highest have plain beginnings in wonder and powerful works, and endings in effects and signs. Amen! Do you understand what we are reading?

12.        Does this Ministry of THE SON OF MAN not have a plain beginning? Do we not quote the day of the beginning? Did it not start with signs and wonders which we are quoting till today? When it has come to an end, did He not announce it?

13.        7And everyone who will be saved, and will be able to escape by his works, and by faith, whereby you have believed, 8Will be preserved from the said perils, and will see My salvation in My land, and within My borders; for I have sanctified them for Me from the beginning.

14.        9Then they will be in pitiful case, who have now abused My ways; and those who have despitefully cast them away will dwell in torments. 10For such who, in their life, have received benefits, and have not known Me;

15.        11And those who have loathed My law, while they had yet liberty, and, when as yet, place of repentance was open to them, did not understand, but despised it; 12The same must know it after death by pain.

16.        13And therefore do not be curious how the ungodly will be punished, and when; but enquire how the righteous will be saved, whose the world is, and for whom the world is created."

17.        Do not be mindful of why people behave the way they behave and do the things they do, but be mindful of the reason why God has decided to choose you to be among those that will be sanctified by the Faith of Christ, that you may have an everlasting inheritance in Paradise. That should be your pre-occupation. You first. 

18.        14Then I answered and said, 15"I have said before, and now do speak, and will speak it also hereafter, that there are many more of those who perish, than of those who will be saved; 16As a wave is greater than a drop."

19.        Those that will perish are greater in number than those that will be saved. And I have told you that in every generation, God’s people have remained few. True or false? From what you are reading this morning, have I been fooling your ears?

20.        17And He answered me, saying, "As the field is, so also is the seed; as the flowers are, such are the colors also; such as the workman is, such also is the work; and as the husbandman is himself, so is his husbandry also;... Yes!!!...for it was the time of the world.

21.        18And now when I prepared the world, which was not yet made, even for them to dwell in, who now live, no man spoke against Me. 19For then, everyone obeyed; but now the manners of those who are created in this world that is made are corrupted by a perpetual seed, and rid themselves by a law that is unsearchable.

22.        20So I considered the world, and, behold, there was peril because of the devices that had come into it. Sure!!!21And I saw, and spared it greatly, and have kept Myself a grape of the cluster, and a plant of a great people.

23.        22Let the multitude perish then, which was born in vain; and let My grape be kept, and My plant; for with great labour I have made it perfect. Amen! Amen!! Amen!!!

24.        I told you that My labour among you can never be in vain. Believe it if you can. Somebody MUST be saved from among you. Have you not been hearing Me? My labour among you can never be wasted. Somebody MUST, of a necessity, be saved from among us in this Faith. Why not say, “I am the one.”

25.        23Nevertheless, if you will cease yet seven days more, (but you will not fast in them, 24But go into a field of flowers, where no house is built, and only eat the flowers of the field; taste no flesh, drink no wine, but eat flowers only;)

26.        25And pray to the Highest continually,... And Who is the Highest? God....then I will come and talk with you. "Remember I enjoined you to observe regular prayers. Your meeting point with God as an individual.

27.        Is it not a lesson you learnt? Was there any prayer request which God never answered with encouraging words? That is why your knowledge of God will combine with your prayer to give you latent power; latent energy.

28.        After your prayers, your face will be shining. People will be enquiring to know what you are feeding on. You did not eat anything. He has not eaten anything, but looks fresher and more presentable than those who have eaten.

29.        Rich with the Spirit of Christ. Rich with the wisdom of God. The face will be shining bright and bubbling with life. The strength renewed.

30.        But when you remain dormant and starchy, only looking around, with your mind wandering up and down, you are killing yourself.

31.        26So I went my way into the field which is called Ardath, as He commanded me; and there I sat among the flowers, and ate of the herbs of the field, and the meat of the same satisfied me. 27After seven days, I sat upon the grass, and my heart was vexed within me, as before;...

32.        You see why you should not be counting it against THE SON OF MAN whose countenance changes from time to time depending on what is facing Him.

33.        Oftentimes you think My countenance is changing because of the evil you have done in the Family. No! And I will tell you it is because of the condition of the Bride. It is like we are labouring in vain. The more I labour, the more I see people wasting time. I become upset.

34.        Nothing upsets One sent by God, if not the attitude of the people to whom he is sent.

35.        A gift that is given to people free of charge is being scorned and laughed at and set aside. Do you think that that Man will be very happy with the people?

36.        So, do not ask Me why My countenance changes. Sometimes, it may be too harsh that I find it difficult to answer calls. Moreso, when the calls are coming from such people who are in My bad records.

37.        They feel bad when I command them, “Go straight to your point.” No room for exchange of greeting. Go straight away to your point. I am not in the mood to receive your commendations which are false.

38.        THIS IS BECAUSE EVERY COMMENDATION FROM A HYPOCRITE IS BRIBERY. IT IS FALSE. A HYPOCRITE WILL POUR ENCOMIUMS ON A MAN HE WANTS TO CHEAT.

39.        28And I opened my mouth, and began to talk before the Most High, and said, 29"O Lord, You who show Yourself to us,...

40.        Has He shown Himself to us? The same yesterday, today and forever. The same way, he showed Himself to our forefathers; Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, for He has been a human been since the world began, showcasing Himself and revealing Himself to whosoever He willeth.

41.        But the rest will doubt the report of such people. Even today, who will believe our report. To who is the arm of the LORD revealed, I mean, in this our day. Who will believe our report and our testimonies to be true?

42.        1Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? [Isaiah 53:1 KJV]

43.        There are many that will hear what you are hearing, what we are hearing and they will not understand simply because they are not of God. You are hearing it; you are believing it and you are rejoicing because you are of God, for he that is of God heareth God’s Word.

44.        If you are not of God, you will hear, but you will not understand. And when you do not understand, you can never behave right.

45.        47He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. [John 8:47 KJV]

46.        11And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: 12that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. [Mark 4:11 – 12 KJV]

47.        28And I opened my mouth, and began to talk before the Most High, and said, 29"O Lord, You who show Yourself to us, You were shown to our fathers in the wilderness, in a place where no man treads, in a barren place, when they came out of Egypt.

48.        30And You spoke saying, 'Hear Me, O Israel; and mark My words, you seed of Jacob. 31For, behold, I sow My law in you, and it will bring fruit in you, and you will be honored in it forever.'

49.        32But our fathers, who received the law, did not keep it, and did not observe Your ordinances; and though the fruit of Your law did not perish, neither could it, for it was Yours;

50.        [2]For this wonderful news—the message that God wants to save us—has been given to us just as it was to those who lived in the time of Moses. But it didn’t do them any good because they didn’t believe it. They didn’t mix it with faith. [Hebrews 4:2-3 LB]

51.        33Yet those who received it perished, because they did not keep the thing that was sown in them. 34And, look, it is a custom, when the ground has received seed, or the sea a ship, or any vessel, meat or drink, that being perished wherein it was sown or cast into,

52.        35That thing also which was sown, or cast therein, or received, perishes, and does not remain with us; but it has not happened so with us. 36For we who have received the law perish by sin, and our heart also that received it.

53.        37Notwithstanding, the law does not perish, but remains in his force." 38And when I spoke these things in my heart, I looked back with my eyes, and upon the right side, I saw a woman, and, behold, she mourned and wept with a loud voice, and was much grieved in heart, and her clothes were rent, and she had ashes upon her head.

54.        39Then I let my thoughts go that I was in, and turned myself to her, 40And said to her, "Why do you weep? Why are you so grieved in your mind?" 41And she said to me, "Sir, let me alone, that I may bewail myself, and add to my sorrow, for I am sore vexed in my mind, and brought very low."

55.        42And I said to her, "What ails you? Tell me." 43She said to me, "I, your servant, have been barren, and had no child, though I had a husband thirty years,

56.        44And those thirty years, I did nothing else day and night, and every hour, but make my prayer to the Highest.

57.        45After thirty years, God heard me, your handmaid, looked upon my misery, considered my trouble, and gave me a son; and I was very glad of him, so also was my husband, and all my neighbours; and we gave great honor to the Almighty.

58.        46And I nourished him with great travail. 47So when he grew up, and came to the time that he should have a wife, I made a feast.

59.        1And it so came to pass, that when my son had entered into his wedding chamber, he fell down, and died.2Then we all overthrew the lights, and all my neighbors rose up to comfort me; so I took my rest to the second day at night. Sure!!!

60.        3And it came to pass, when they had all left off to comfort me, to the end [that] I might be quiet; then I rose up by night and fled, and came here into this field, as you see.

61.        4And I now purpose to not return into the city, but to stay here, and neither to eat or drink, but to continually mourn and fast until I die."

62.        5Then I left the meditations wherein I was, and spoke to her in anger, saying,6"You foolish woman above all others, do you not see our mourning, and what happens to us?

63.        7How Zion our mother is full of all heaviness, and much humbled, mourning very sore? 8And now, seeing we all mourn and are sad, for we are all in heaviness, are you grieved for one son?

64.        9For ask the earth, and she will tell you, that it is she who should mourn for the fall of so many who grow upon her.10For all came out of her at the first, and all others will come out of her, and, behold, they almost all walk into destruction, and a multitude of them is utterly rooted out.

65.        11Who then should make more mourning than her, who has lost so great a multitude; and not you, who are sorry but for one?12But if you say to me, 'My lamentation is not like the earth’s, because I have lost the fruit of my womb, which I brought forth with pains, and bare with sorrows 13But the earth not so; for the multitude present in it, according to the course of the earth, is gone, as it came;'

66.        14Then I say to you, 'As you have brought forth with labour; even so the earth has also given her fruit, namely, man, ever since the beginning to Him who made her.'

67.        15Now therefore keep your sorrow to yourself, and bear with a good courage that which has befallen you.16For if you will acknowledge the determination of God to be just, you will both receive your son in time, and will be commended among women.

68.        17Go your way then into the city to your husband."18And she said to me, "I will not do that; I will not go into the city, but I will die here."

69.        19So I proceeded to speak further to her, and said, 20"Do not do so, but be counseled by me; for how many are the adversities of Zion? Be comforted in regard of the sorrow of Jerusalem. 21For you see that our sanctuary is laid waste, our altar broken down, our temple destroyed;

70.        22Our psaltery is laid on the ground, our song is put to silence, our rejoicing is at an end, the light of our candlestick is put out, the ark of our covenant is spoiled, our holy things are defiled, and the name that is called upon us is almost profaned; our children are put to shame, our priests are burnt, our Levites have gone into captivity, our virgins are defiled, and our wives ravished; our righteous men carried away, our little ones destroyed, our young men are brought in bondage, and our strong men have become weak;

71.        23And, which is the greatest of all, the seal of Zion has now lost her honour; for she is delivered into the hands of those who hate us.24And therefore shake off your great heaviness, and put away the multitude of sorrows, that the Mighty may be merciful to you again, and the Highest will give you rest and ease from your labor."

72.        25And it came to pass while I was talking with her, behold, her face suddenly shined exceedingly, and her countenance glistered, so that I was afraid of her, and mused what it might be.

73.        26And, behold, she suddenly made a great cry, very fearful; so that the earth shook at the noise of the woman.27And I looked, and, behold, the woman appeared to me no more, but there was a city built, and a large place showed itself from the foundations; then I was afraid, and cried with a loud voice, and said,

74.        28"Where is Uriel the angel, who came to me at the first? For he has caused me to fall into many trances, and my end has turned into corruption, and my prayer to rebuke."

75.        29And as I was speaking these words, behold, he came to me, and looked upon me.30And, look, I lay as one who had been dead, and my understanding was taken from me; and he took me by the right hand, and comforted me, and set me upon my feet, and said to me,31"What ails you? And why are you so disquieted? And why is your understanding troubled, and the thoughts of your heart?"

76.        32And I said, "Because you have forsaken me, and yet I did according to your words, and I went into the field, and, look, I have seen, and yet see, that I am not able to express."

77.        33And he said to me, "Stand up manfully, and I will advise you."34Then I said, "Speak on, my Lord, in me; only do not forsake me, unless I die frustrated of my hope.35For I have seen that [which] I did not know, and heard that [which] I do not know.36Or is my sense deceived, or my soul in a dream?

78.        37Now therefore I beseech You that you will show Your servant of this vision."38He answered me then, and said, "Hear me, and I will inform you, and tell you why you are afraid; for the Highest will reveal many secret things to you. Amen!

79.        This is the much I will permit you to take from this book. When we gather next time, we will finish it before we begin to study it. It is not that we are dismissing.

 

I believe with all my heart that I know those I have chosen, and those I have chosen, they know that they have been chosen by Me. You did not choose Me for one day, I chose you. Even if you were asked to choose Me, you would have rejected Me. Many of you were even running away from Me. I was hunting you from place to place, even using hardship to make you stop somewhere. Even using sickness to make you stop somewhere, for if you fail to stop, you will fly away beyond my reach. Hence, you have to stop somewhere, while you will be running around it, I will meet you there.

 

GOD HAS COUNTED ME WORTHY, PUTTING ME INTO THIS MINISTRY; Preached on Sunday 13th August, 2000;  Pg. 109 vs. 6 – 7

YOU ARE EITHER ON THE LORD’S SIDE, OR ON THE DEVIL’S SIDE

 

I have a Message here which I will like us to consider. So, I invite our Brother and also our son, Chiemelie who will graciously and gently help us to read a part of the Message, IF YOU HAVE BEEN WITH CHRIST, WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE?

2.   Can you remember the day I touched on this Message in our Family Altar? Can you remember? That was the day I was blaming you for not recording the Message, but Bro Eli said he recorded.

3.           I decided to revisit it before the Elders in a very wonderful way. And then charged our Pastor Chizoba to record and expand it. Let us hear him.

4.           If we have been with Christ, where is the evidence? If we have been with Christ, what is that evidence somebody will see in us and believe strongly that our testimony is true that we are living with God; and that we are having dealings with God and not the devil or an evil man? Open the Message

5.           IF WE HAVE BEEN WITH CHRIST, WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE? This Message was preached on Thursday 11th February 2021.

6.           A sermon initiated by Apostle Peter Odoemena, THE VERY SON OF MAN; Expanded by Pastor Chizoba Udochukwu as directed by THE SON OF MAN at the Bridal Lodge Nsugbe, during usual morning Meeting with some Brethren;

7.           In the presence of:

[1] Pastor Thomas Eze,

[2] Pastor Chizoba Udochukwu,

[3] Deacon Chibuko Egwuatu,

[4] Bro Stephen Eze and

[5] Bro Sunday Eze.

8.           That is where I am striking. The Voice said, “I am yet to see a Minister That has patterned after Me.” Brethren, has this Voice ceased? This is where it gives Me a lot of concern.

9.           The Message was preached in 1996. If by now there is no Minister that is worthy of THE SON OF MAN’s confidence, it then means we are playing mere Church. We are playing religion.

10.        There is one thing that keeps My heart afloat. There is nobody here who does not have power over his decisions. Every human being has power over his or her decisions.

11.        In the same way, you have power over your character. That is pure truth! Any life you have decided to live is the one you will live. And you have chosen it because it gives you joy.

12.        SO CHECK THE LIFE YOU HAVE DECIDED TO LIVE. AND THAT IS WHAT DETERMINES YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY, WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT.

13.        .....So you are doing whatever you are doing because that is what you have decided to be doing, whether God likes it or not; whether it conforms to the doctrines of Christ or not. This is Pure truth!!!

14.        You see why hell is not for everybody,... Yes! God is not willing that we should perish, but look at what we are manipulating against ourselves.

15.        You see why hell is not for everybody, but for such people that have decided to take the wrong decision after knowing the truth. That is pure truth!

16.        How many Brethren have collectively and individually made promises to God without abiding by them? Though they have been taught about the implications, they hardened their hearts. That is Truth!!!

17.        If I had esteemed My life more than your salvation, do you think that you would have been where you are today? I placed My life on the line because of you. Yes sir!!!

18.        Pg. 27. 43THE MOMENT YOU ARE NOT ON THE LORD’S SIDE, YOU ARE ON THE DEVIL’S SIDE, FOR YOU CANNOT BE ALONE. YOU CANNOT BE ALONE. Is it a lie Brethren?

19.        You are either on the LORD’s side or on the devil’s side. Nobody avoids the two.

20.        Page 44. 53If they do not get that blend, there must be problem. The reason why Abraham married a godly wife was to get godly children having known Abraham from the foundation of the world even when Abraham was a pagan.

21.        54For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him. Gen. 18:19 KJV.

22.        When Abraham had no single child.

23.        Pg. 96 27So it is in every generation. Whoever that draws back from the truth must fight the truth.

24.        If you withdraw from the war front as a soldier, you become a saboteur, disclaiming your fellow soldiers. Is it not true?

25.        29The reason why people make shipwreck of their calling is that they do not know that their lives are influencing somebody near them.

26.        30You should know that your life is influencing somebody, somebody is watching you as an Elder, and not an ordinary man in the Church, that whatever you do, a younger person by your side may be carried away, thinking that that is the way the thing should be done, not knowing that you are an erring minister.

27.        31You see why you should be careful the way you live? Have you seen why that your life, your character is the greatest testimony in the sight of God? You might be the most respected Minister. Yet, you are a backslider in the heart.

28.        41It is God’s wisdom that helps us to discern every situation and eschew evil. By this, God knows those that are with Him and those that are not.

29.        By this, God knows those that are following Him and those that are against Him, for whoever that is not with God is against God. IF YOU ARE NOT WITH ME, YOU ARE AGAINST ME.

30.        There is no other way I can know who My disciples are if not by their daily character. I cannot know you by your preaching. Neither will I know you by your praises or whatever may be your contributions to the Faith.

31.        But as long as your manifestations run contrary to the doctrines and to the teachings of Christ, it then means you are a known enemy of the Truth.

32.        45You must be practically and personally acquainted. You must work close. You do not distant yourself from him. And the moment you hate your master, that is the end of learning the job.

33.        46The moment the master has discovered that you are the one who wants to have your way, and that you have come to teach your master, he will teach all others, but you. He will never teach you, for you have unteachable spirit.

34.        47How do we know those that have unteacheable spirit? The scriptures say they keep on waiting to be taught when they ought to be masters, teachers.

35.         48They pretend they did not understand what you are saying, when they have already sealed it up in their minds that you are wasting your time; that they can never move an inch with you. Is it not true? Is it not true?

36.        The number of children I have does not make any meaning but the nature of my children is the most important thing. 

37.        If you have 20 children with beast’s nature, one child with God’s nature is mightier than they. ONE PERSON WITH THE NATURE OF GOD IS GREATER THAN ONE MILLION PEOPLE WITHOUT THE NATURE OF GOD.

38.        Is it not what is being noised abroad in Umuokanne? That was where a child was asked how many children his father has, being a polygamist. He said, “My dad has twenty-one [21] children, but only one of them is a human being.”

39.        Only one of them is a human being. Only one behaves like a human being. It became a daily saying in that community. My father has twenty-one children, but only one is a human being.

40.        17A corrupt fellow is a disease that is infectious. Once the heart is corrupt, the character is also corrupt.

41.        18That is why in every family, do not harbour any corrupt person. ... DO NOT HARBOUR ANY CORRUPT PERSON IN YOUR FAMILY.

42.        ... Somebody who will hear the Word of God and live contrary, is he not a corrupt person? His life is another doctrine altogether.

43.        A corrupt person is one that will hear the Word of God and behave contrary. Then, the corrupt heart can influence others to do wrong. It is easier to emulate evil than to emulate good. Is it not true?

44.        If God says that no family should harbour any corrupt, person take note of it. Take note of it. My duty and your duty, if you want to escape it, is to make sure we live right in the sight of God, for God is no respecter of persons.

45.        And nobody is so indispensable that God cannot show him the way out because he is having a contaminating influence among others.

46.        That is the much we will take for today. Mark it. when we gather next time, may be tomorrow morning, if we shall live to see tomorrow, trusting God Who is with us that He will remain with us, we will continue from where we stopped.

47.        I give God the Glory for the enabling spiritual strength and physical strength He gave us to remain in His presence till this day. And I pray that He will keep on helping us to abide in His presence, even forever.

48.        From what we have heard today, we can go and then sit down and meditate to find out for ourselves whether God has ever deceived us from the very beginning till now.

49.        Remember where we took off. we took off from a hidden Book, the Second Book of Ezra. I mean, if what we heard from there does not frighten you, know that you are a serpent seed.

50.        It is very frightening. Very very frightening! Pure truth! It has rekindled the light of hope in all of us today; that if we remain doing good and obeying God, nothing will stop us from entering Paradise.

51.        Even if we die in this current Faith, doing good, we shall resurrect again. Resurrection is real. Judgment of God is real. Punishment of the wicked is real. Paradise is real.

52.        IF WE HAVE BEEN WITH CHRIST, WHAT HAVE WE LEARNT FROM HIM ALL THESE YEARS? WHAT HAVE PEOPLE SEEN IN US THAT WILL MAKE THEM BELIEVE THAT REALLY, WE HAVE BEEN PERSONALLY AND PRACTICALLY ACQUAINTED WITH CHRIST?

53.        There in Antioch, they saw them, not preaching on the streets, but they saw their behaviours and then believed that they were like Christ.

54.        Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul: and when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. AND THE DISCIPLES WERE CALLED CHRISTIANS FIRST IN ANTIOCH. [Acts 11:25 – 26 KJV]

55.        In another place in the Acts of the Apostles, they saw what they were manifesting and wondered how they could have that type of wisdom seeing they did not go to school.

56.        But one who knew them very well said, “Do not wonder about what they are manifesting and the level of wisdom they are displaying. They have been with Christ.”

57.        [13]When the Council saw the boldness of Peter and John and could see that they were obviously uneducated non-professionals, they were amazed and realized what being with Jesus had done for them! [Acts 4:13 LB]

58.        So you cannot be practically and personally acquainted with Christ and behave foolishly. Never never! The opposite of wisdom is foolishness. True or false?

59.        Remember that whoever that is empty will receive empty things; empty promises. That is the person that will be disappointed.

60.        So, foolishness will be given to one who has decided to be foolish. While wisdom will be given to one who has decided to be wise. Paradise Gate will be opened to one who had walked to enter into it; who know the value.

61.        I mean, you cannot be called vessel of honour when you do not know what it takes to be a vessel of honour; you do not know the benefits.

62.        When you know the benefits, nobody will tell you to behave yourself in such a way that God will say the same thing He said to Jesus Christ, “This is My well beloved child in whom I am well pleased.”

63.        If you have not walked yourself into the heart of God, so that you win His confidence that you are Paradise Designates, that you are heavenly-bound, begin now, for it is not yet too late.

64.        If it is too late, we will never be given this opportunity we have today. I believe God wants to consolidate our Faith in Him, helping us also to see reason why we must pattern after the Man He placed before our eyes in all things.

65.        So, as we bow down our heads to allow our Brother Chika to round off with a brief prayer, committing our souls into the hands of God in well doing; and our activities within the week also into His perfect hands.

CONCLUSION

PRAYER

Almighty God, the KING of Kings, the Ella-Elohim, The Great God who is living among us, we are so grateful O LORD to You, Almighty Father for making it possible, having gathered before you and having received Your Word this day. We are so grateful to You O LORD.

2.           Thank You, O God for touching us at the point of our needs. Thank you for increasing our Faith in You Almighty Father. We are so grateful for the good and marvelous works You have been doing in our lives O God.

3.           And we are thanking You Almighty Father for Your Mercy, for Your loving-kindness, for outside that, I wonder O LORD what would have become of us.

4.           Thank you for guiding us and teaching us all this while, and may that purpose for which You are teaching us be achieved in our lives O LORD. This day, we have heard Your Word and it really touched our hearts Almighty Father.

5.           May this Word go forth to dominate our hearts. Help us to be thinking about it and meditating on it on a daily basis so that our character, O LORD, will be in line with the Messages we are receiving.

6.           Never allow us to end up being hearers of Your Word alone, but help us to be doers of Thy Word, for Your Word is life unto us, Almighty Father.

7.           Never allow, O God, any spirit of forgetfulness to creep into us, but grant it that Your Word will constantly be retained in our hearts O LORD.

8.           So, we are committing everything around us into your holy hands, O LORD. See us through in everything we are going to do, even this week, knowing full well that this is the beginning of the week.

9.           The rest of days in  the week, we commit into Your Holy hands. See us through O God. Keep on safe-guarding us. Keep on protecting us. Keep on insulating us from Your wrath, O God. Even from this very pandemic Almighty Father, keep on safe-guarding every one of us.

10.        So LORD, we are committing everything we are doing, Mighty Father, even our going out and our coming in into Your Holy hands. Always make a way for us, even where there is no way and never allow any evil report O God, to be received from any quarter at all.

11.        Keep on protecting our lives that we may always be happy in Your presence. So we are committing all our Brethren into Your Holy hands, including our Family members, O God.

12.        No matter where they are O God, may Your eyes always be upon them. No matter whatever they are doing, may they never lack that revelation of the hour we are living in O God.

13.        Even as You permitted us to continue with our studies, to continue in our workplaces, even those that are doing one thing or the other, You said we should continue but not forgetting the hour we are living in.

14.        May that revelation always be remembered O God, in our hearts; and never allow the things we see or the things we are pursuing to take us away from You, Almighty Father, but help us all the time that we will always be found in You, doing Your own will at all times.

15.        So, we are committing our souls and the saving of our lives into Your Holy hands, for we are depending on You, for outside Your protection, LORD, we cannot do anything.

16.        We hand over everything around us into your Holy hands. May You take absolute control in all things. May You be our Controller. May Your Spirit be Our Guide in everything, Almighty Father.

17.        And never allow any force that is greater than us, and which is not of Thee to be in control of our lives, but may You be the only One in control of our lives, Almighty Father.

18.        All these thing we have placed into Your Holy hands, thanking You for everything You have done, for we believe that as we are dismissing this day, that Your touch will remain effective and also working perfectly in our lives, making our lives to be better.

19.        All these thing, we commit into Your Holy hands, believing that as the loving Father You are, that You will do more than we have requested of You this day, through the Mighty Name, Peter the Christ our LORD we pray. Amen.
