Who had a close insight into the hour? The Resurrected Body. Who is feeding us with this Truth? The Resurrected Body. Who has the ability to fish out criminals from amongst us? The Resurrected Body. Who has the Power to separate the sheep from the goat? The Resurrected Body. Who knows who is who in the Bride? The Resurrected Body.

TO BE CRIMINALLY

MINDED IS DEATH

 

Good morning to all of you. I will first of all begin to confirm this dream I had. I never knew it is contained in this little excerpt. As long as God liveth and I live, this dream came to pass to the letter. You are My witnesses.

2.           After narrating this dream that came to Me twice, in less than one month, we all gathered here in the Fellowship on a Sunday, and My phone rang and it came from a police station around Okigwe area in Imo State.

3.           And they mentioned the name of one of us here, who has been fellowshipping with the family and with the children.

4.           They asked Me whether I am the very Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena and I said, “Yes.” The caller further enquired, “Do you know this man, for he mentioned your Name?” I retorted, “As what?”

5.           And the caller said, “As his Pastor.” I said, “No! I cannot be a Pastor. I am Apostle Peter Odoemena and I cannot be a Pastor. I know that name.”

6.           He said, “Ok. Do you know him as a criminal?” I said, “Well, I will not mince words. I knew him as a criminal, but I thought that by now, he must have repented, for I have taken My time to warn him, to teach him and to encourage him to do good, at least, for the sake of his family.”

7.           He said, “Thank you very much. You have answered very well. They had already concluded to come to your Fellowship venue this morning to whisk you and some others off, for we are now with him in our station. Look at the crime he committed on the highway.”

8.           I held My peace, looked up, looked down and called Apostle Kelechi out. I called that number and the police officer picked. I then handed the phone over to Apostle Kelechi to hear him. They said that they were taking him to Owerri, and I said, “With all pleasure, do it.”

9.           So, from there, many things happened. He was detained for many months with his group. We knew them not. Then, we remembered the dream.

10.        If not divine intervention through prayers, there would have been a very big embarrassment here on a Sunday Fellowship.

11.        You will begin to see two Hilux vans with somebody handcuffed both hands and legs, and the person happens to be one of us.

12.        YOU SEE, IF YOU ARE STILL CRIMINALLY MINDED, LET ME TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE RUNNING THE GREATEST RISK. TO BE CRIMINALLY MINDED IS DEATH.

13.        There are too many forms of criminality. And that is why I do not subscribe to every kind of business.

14.        Remember I told you that criminality has no scale. A criminal is a criminal. But bear it in mind that, in law, criminality has no expiry date.

15.        You might be thinking that you are free, but pray that your accomplice will not be arrested somewhere, for he must trace you. That it happened one million years ago is no excuse. Once you are incriminated, you are going in for it, for you are answerable.

16.        SO, RUN AWAY FROM ALL FORMS OF CRIMINALITY. Remember, I have been de-emphasizing on all forms of criminal acts.

17.        To the students, especially those with us here, you have seen what happens on the highways. Wherever SARS operatives halt a vehicle, they are looking for youngsters with either Android handsets or laptops.

18.         They must download everything you have in your android or laptop to know whether you are one of the yahoo boys. This is because yahoo has become a norm in Anambra State in particular.

19.        That is why, if you are living in a yard, where you have one or two tenants, whose generators can never go off, from evening till morning and they are not producing anything, put a question mark on that flat.

20.        You have your co-tenants, male or female. This is because anybody can be a criminal. In the morning, he will be loitering around the yard, carrying cartons of beer, entertaining himself and his visitors.

21.        He has no visible means of livelihood, but every night, the generator will be on from 7pm till 7am in the morning. Be very careful. One day, that building may be pulled down.

22.        Both you and your family members will not be saved because once there is a swoop, every tenant is a suspect. You will get to the headquarters before you will begin to talk anyhow, for it is generally believed that you knew what they were doing and you concealed it.

23.        And you are not a part of the community policing, for if you are a part, such thing could have been reported in one way or the other to the appropriate quarters so that they will keep surveillance over that structure and over the individuals concerned.

24.        If you are among those that enjoy free brews or free drinks, be very careful about the people that are offering you free drinks.

25.        If you enjoy parties here and there, be very careful about those that are inviting you to the parties. What and what are they celebrating.

26.        This is because the situation has become so bad that unemployed people now lavish money more than the employed ones, for money that is ill-gotten can be spent anyhow. No man sweats to get money and spends it anyhow.

27.        Be very careful about those that are flaunting dollars here and there, whether they be fake dollars or genuine ones.

28.        I know why I am talking. This is because our youths are coming up, and I can see signs of rising criminal propensities in them. Unbridled penchant for materialism is coming up again, and your parents are keeping quiet. Your relations are keeping quiet.

29.        At the end of the day, they will blame it on the Faith as if the Faith has approved evil. From the very beginning of this Faith, we have decried all forms of evil. No matter where it is found, evil is evil.

30.        Married ones who love pleasure more than God and more than godliness; you want to enjoy pleasures, but you do not want to ask questions, “Where is this money I am enjoying coming from?”

31.        Married women, who take pleasure in covering evil because you think you know the law enforcement agents, and you know how to go about bribing them to cover up crimes, well, you can succeed today, but tomorrow, may be very bleak. Tomorrow may be very bleak.

32.        The person that is spear-heading it, helping you to cover up crimes and releasing criminal suspects to you because you are in one way or the other connected to that person, one day, you will get there, only to hear that he has been transferred to Yobe State, and a new man will be there. You will see a Pharaoh that does not know Joseph.

33.        Besides that, have you forgotten the law of Retributive Justice? Any seed a man soweth, that He must reap.

34.        7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. [Galatians 6:7 KJV]

35.        You take delight in earning a living through violence, you must leave here and get your reward.

36.        I am saying that the evil that men do live with them here and also follow them in the hereafter. Brother Philip, I hope you are paying attention. I hope you are paying attention.

37.        There are many forms of criminalities. OBT [obtaining by trick] is criminality. You obtain business by tricks. You collect huge sums of money as deposit. You will not do the work and you will not also return the money.

38.        Rather, you will tell the man to go to the Police so that you will use his deposit to pursue the case against him.

39.        Hear me very well. When a man is bitten by a dog two times, he becomes a customer to dog bite. Is it a lie?

40.        One who has been bitten by the dog twice has entered into an everlasting covenant of biting with the dog. It does not mean anything to him again.

41.        If by the time the Police will ask you of your name, instead of answering the question, you have pulled off every cloth on you, wearing only pants, it then means that you had already made up your mind to go to the cell.

42.        You had already concluded, “After all, the whole thing will end in going to the cell. I did not carry gun. It is business.” Do not worry! One day, business will interpret itself.

43.        After all, business is a term that has no definition. Whatever you give it as your definition becomes the definition of business.

44.        An armed robber is doing a business. Yahoo is business. Prostitution, business. OBT, business. Is it a lie? Business has no approved definition. It is bare.

45.        So, I am not warning you to be careful, but I would rather say like I have told you before, “O man, know thyself. Know thyself. O woman, know thyself.”

46.        There are many forms of criminalities. The students can be criminals. Maybe you do not know that a cultist is a criminal.

47.        You do not know that he that specializes in examination malpractice is also a criminal, and you are playing with 21 years imprisonment without option of fine.

48.        what can you say about impersonation? too many of you are fond of that. what can you say about the use of multiple names that are not even legalized?

49.        In your Facebook, you answer Michael. In another form, you answer Peter. The other way, you answer Romanus. At another point, you are Donatus. Do not worry.

50.        If a Governor could be disqualified for bearing multiple names in different certificates, that will show you how criminal the act is.

51.        YOU CAN NEVER POSSESS A NAME WITHOUT A LEGAL BACKING.

52.        So, if you like, change your name from Peter to Paul, from Paul to dog, and from dog to monkey, you character remaineth the same.

53.        Your character must surely find you out. That was what Moses told the people of Israel, “Be sure your sins must find you out.”

54.        23But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out. [Numbers 32:23 KJV]

55.        This is the era of criminality because our youths are over ambitious. They want to catch the wind. Our parents take delight in the wages of unrighteousness. I am telling you the truth.

56.        I know a case I handled and the father of the young man spoke to me. And this thing happened recently.

57.        The man said, “SON OF MAN Sir, I assume full responsibility for my son’s action, for I am the one, together with my wife that exposed this child to this evil.”

58.        And this person who is telling Me this is not a stranger. He is one of you in this Faith. And the son has been languishing in the prison custody there in Kiri-kiri, Lagos.

59.        He is fifteen years of age, and was clamped down there in 2006. In 2006, he landed in the prison. Can you imagine the age? What was the offence? Kidnapping! Kidnapping at a tender age.

60.        And the man said that he was the one, together with the wife who pushed their son into that evil. He said that they were encouraging him to go to Lagos instead of going for further studies or to even finish his secondary school career.

61.        And they encouraged him to go to Lagos, follow his mates and do whatever they are doing to see whether they can alleviate their financial mess.

62.        First trial, he was arrested with his colleagues. And because he is still too tender, he is kept there, pending when he will clock 18 to 21 years.

63.        I know one who was detained at the age of five, until she clocked 16 years, for she was a murderer. She murdered a small baby of the same age. An infant!

64.        While they were playing along the road, three small girls pinned their fellow small girl on the ground and used sand to stuff the nose and the mouth, until the girl suffocated and died there.

65.        Parents were looking for the little girl and one of them innocently spoke very boldly. She went to the mother and told her what transpired where they went and played, “And we were using sand. We used sand to play until she slept. When we were about to go, she could not get up.”

66.        The parents got there and saw the little girl dead. Police arrested the three of them. One died in the cell. Two are still alive, waiting for the right age for them to be arraigned before the court and then, hanged accordingly for committing murder.

67.        This is a real case. And it is there right now, as I am talking to you.

68.        When I read that letter from us, Bro Sunday were you not there? Pastor Thomas, were you not there? Pastor Chizoba, were you not there? You were the one that read that letter. Was it from outside? From here! From here!

69.        Often times, parents encourage their children to do evil. When you are fond of receiving the fruits of evil deeds, are you not encouraging the evil doer?

70.        Let us face facts. Do not think I am here to tell you stories. Criminals are here. I say, criminals are here. There is no inscription on anybody’s face indicating that he or she is a criminal.

71.        And if I show you who a criminal is, you will never believe it, for a criminal is known for one thing. He has an innocent face.

72.        WHEN YOU GET HOME, RID YOUR FAMILIES OF ALL FORMS OF EVILS. FIND OUT HOW YOUR CHILDREN GOT THE MONEY THEY ARE USING TO BUY ANDROID HANDSETS WORTH ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY THOUSAND NAIRA [₦120,000.00].

73.        They will tell you, “Uncle gave it to me. somebody I did this, came back from Dubai.” They are all lies. I say, they are all lies. Some of them are stolen. Some of them are stolen.

74.        Some even sleep with their boyfriends in the world. They get up in the morning to loot valuables. Before the man will come out to the parlour, they disappear.

75.        It is very hard to believe until one day, the law enforcement agents will knock at your door with a photograph. And then, you will be answerable to the items your children stole from somebody’s house.

76.        We are living in an age where even females are expert criminals. Before now, a lady respects herself, knowing that one day, she will get married. But that one is over.

77.        Ladies appear to be more criminally minded right now than the young boys because their parents are behind their criminalities.

78.        I am happy that this record is kept. And whenever I go through this Message, I will remember the Message I handled, titled JUDGMENT DAY IN THE CHURCH.

79.        And you know the reason for that Message. It is in print. Many names are there. Names of criminal suspects. Names of ex-convicts we are harbouring here, thinking they have changed, when they have not changed one bit.

80.        HE THAT CONCEALS A STOLEN PROPERTY, IS HE NOT A CRIMINAL. WHOEVER THAT RECEIVES A STOLEN PROPERTY IS ALSO A CRIMINAL.

81.        YOU ARE ENCOURAGING THE CRIMINAL TO GO AHEAD. YOU HAVE TO DECRY ALL FORMS OF CRIMINALITY.

82.        FIND OUT WHAT YOUR CHILDREN ARE DOING IN THEIR SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES, AND IN THE UNIVERSITIES. FIND OUT THE TYPE OF ASSOCIATION THEY ARE KEEPING THERE.

83.        DO NOT CLOSE YOUR MOUTH. IF YOU CLOSE YOUR MOUTH, EVIL WILL KEEP ON INCREASING. AND DO NOT FEIGN IGNORANCE WHEN YOU KNOW THE TRUTH. I SAY, DO NOT FEIGN IGNORANCE.

84.        DO NOT BEHAVE AS IF YOU ARE NOT NOTICING IT, OR YOU DO NOT KNOW ABOUT IT, WHEN YOU KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT IT.

85.        IF YOU ARE NOT READY TO ASK YOUR CHILDREN, “HOW MANAGE? HOW DID YOU COME ABOUT THIS?”; IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THAT HEART OR THE COURAGE TO ASK THAT QUESTION, WELL, YOU ARE FUELING SOMETHING THAT WILL GULP YOUR HEAD.

86.        BY THEN, A GREAT HAVOC MUST HAVE BEEN DONE. YOU SEE PRESS MEN TAKING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS. NEWSPAPERS WILL WRITE ABOUT YOU. TELEVISIONS WILL TELEVISE YOU. THEN, YOU WILL REMEMBER MY WORDS. AMEN.

87.        SO, LET NOBODY EVER SAY, “THANK GOD IT IS 2008.” EVERY WORD FROM GOD HAS CONTINUOUS FULFILMENT AND CONTINUOUS APPLICATIONS BECAUSE THE WORD OF GOD CAN NEVER GROW OLD. NEVER!!! IT IS ALWAYS ACTIVE FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.

88.        Check your own. There are many ways we are perpetrating evil, and our parents know that we are perpetrating evil, but they are keeping quiet until one day, you will be looking at the sky, gazing at who might have been the informant.

89.        Nobody is the informant but you, for that which you think nobody knows, we know it. We know it. Amen.

90.        A family that is beInG run by false wealth is indirectly living in hell. Time will tell. time will tell.

91.        if you notice that your husband is criminally minded, dissociate yourself by rising up openly to condemn IT. Do not just support it because you are gaining from it.

92.        “This thing you are doing is not good.” That is not what God means. Tell him, “I do not need it!

93.        Often times, your husbands are lead into criminality because they want to please you. you might be mounting pressures on them, ridiculing and cajoling them, calling them weak men who cannot provide for their wives, “Even common gowns, I do not have. Skirts, I do not have.”

94.        And the man will say, “Ok. No problems. I will know how to go about it.” One day, your husband will be set ablaze somewhere. You will now go and see where he has been set ablaze. This is true!!!

95.        If it were not for amazing grace, the one they caught near Okigbo-Okwelle side, what was he doing?

96.        Who does not know that recharge card is raw money? Recharge card is raw money. You can make payments using recharge cards. It is raw money.

97.        By jumping into one shop or the other looting recharge cards, of which one small water-proof bag can carry up to twenty-million-naira worth of recharge cards, he was then pushing people out, threatening people with plastic gun or dagger.

98.        IT MIGHT SOUND CHEAP IN YOUR EYES, BUT IT IS VERY GREAT IN THE SIGHT OF GOD. DISPOSSESSING ONE OF HIS POSSESSION VIOLENTLY. WHAT IS IT? NO CRIMINALITY IS GREATER THAN THAT. AMEN.

99.        That is not the reason why I am here, but having heard the Message, of a truth, I must need to confirm the truth. Thank you.

Our problem is unbelief. Over-familiarity is very dangerous. It is because we are Igbo people. The moment our friend introduces himself to us, he is worth nothing to us again. I do not know whether I committed crime by unfolding the mask. I do not know whether I committed crime by unfolding the mask. The other time, I unfolded a little and then closed it again. But this time around, I have removed the mask, because we have come to the end of the journey. If you have not believed now, you will never believe again. Because when we shall see Him, how will He look like? We shall be like Him for we shall see Him as He is. Not minus. Not plus.

ALLAH IS SWIFT IN TAKING RECORDS

If you look around, you will notice the conspicuous absence of Apostle Kelechi. Bro Chibuko is not here. Bro Iyke Obasanya is equally not here. Bro Solomon Obunwa is not here. But they are here, ably represented by THE SON OF MAN.

2.           I want to use this opportunity to let you know, and I know that many are already acquainted with what I am about to say. But I want you to know the truth about it.

3.           Just as I heard where someone was making a call, and it turned out that Brother Chibuko was the one talking to Pastor Thomas over the phone. I heard it. Pastor came to tell Me what Chibuko told him, but I told him not to listen to him, for it contains no truth and not the present reality on ground now.

4.           And I had to make a call immediately banning everybody there, for I do not want to listen to any other phone or all these incessant phone calls. Let me depend on one voice, for that is how we can control a deadly condition.

5.           When a condition is deadly, it does not require many mouths. It does not require many representatives. That is the only way I know I can control the situation.

6.           IF A SITUATION BECOMES TOO DICEY AND YOU ARE A MAN OF MY TYPE, CLOSE YOUR MOUTH. DO NOT COMPLAIN. DO NOT MURMUR. DO NOT BEGIN TO WRITE PEOPLE OR TO INFORM PEOPLE. BE YOURSELF. THINK YOURSELF OUT OF THAT TROUBLE.

7.           But when you begin to talk here and there, distractions will begin to come. You lose concentration. When you are sure you must have grappled with the problem to a large extent, you can make it public.

8.           Last Sunday, we were all here. And at the end of Fellowship, we all left. I never told anybody any type of story about what was happening in our midst.

9.           But a wise and intelligent fellow will notice the conspicuous absence of Brother Ben Mbah, for the seat where he normally sits down in fellowship was vacant.

10.        And his son, who normally sits beside him was also not there. His wife who normally sits at that extreme was not in Fellowship.

11.        I do not know where the other of his children sit down in Fellowship, but I know the locations of all these ones I mentioned.

12.        We encountered a problem in Bro Ben Mbah’s family. This problem started exactly one week ago. Saturday night, a week today, I remained awake with My wife till daybreak. We were awake from 11 o’clock in the night till 7 o’clock in the morning for the sake of Bro Ben Mbah.

13.        I only called Apostle Kelechi in the morning because I did not want to disturb him to intimate him about what happened all through the night. I then instructed him to go with Bro Iyke and Bro Solomon to trace the residence of Bro Ben Mbah.

14.        I told them to enquire of Joe Onuoha, for he may know. Bro Solomon was also contacted, but all them said that they do not know where Bro Ben was living, for he had packed away from where he was living before and now resides closer at Phase 2, Omagba. But they do not know where he lives presently.

15.        I then told them how they were going to locate his house. I told them to start making calls when they move. They now called the wife and it boiled down to the fact that the house is situated behind Saint Barnabas. For the first time, our Brethren found out where Bro Ben was living.

16.        You that keeps the location of your residence as a secret, do not worry. Pray that nothing will happen that will lead to calling our Brethren. Amen.

17.        Allow us that have made the location of our residences public to remain fools. We will keep on being fools. Lock up your house and secure it with burglary proofs.

18.        On Saturday of last week, we got the call from Bro Ben’s wife at about half past ten o’clock. That was when she called. She could not get through to my own line.

19.        She kept trying and finally got My line at about 11pm due to bad network. My phones were not down. They were all on.

20.        She was now telling us of how her husband came back to the house and was not talking, but was just giving signs with his hands. They were still wondering why the signs with his hands, and he fell down and fainted.

21.        In that condition, his mouth was sealed as well as his eyes. Yet, he was breathing. He was not responding to any call. When pushed, he was lying lifelessly as a corpse.

22.        We then enquired from the wife to know what happened, but she said that she does not know what happened. None of his children could give account of what happened to him, except saying that they saw him that way.

23.        Nobody could tell whether he was beaten by people on his way or that he encountered any other kind of problem on his way.

24.        We remained praying. We instructed her to anoint him with olive oil. We kept communicating with them and by the grace of God he kept slight movements until half past three o’clock in the morning. Then he spoke, but could not open his eyes.

25.        It turned out that he came down all the way from the North, Jos in particular. He originally went to Zaria. He came back and then went back to Jos.

26.        He came back from Jos and then went back to Enugu, for he was told that his Managing Director wanted to see him. He got to Enugu and could not see his MD that called for him.

27.        The items he was said to have gone to bring were not there. He remained in Enugu till Saturday evening waiting to see his MD, but no way. It was there that he started complaining about the state of his health. He said he was feeling tired.

28.        Then he packed the company’s vehicle in front of his MD’s office. He did not hand over the vehicle to anybody. He pocketed the car keys and went to a patent medicine dealer and asked them to “mix drugs” for him.

29.        The Patent medicine dealer mixed two sets of drugs. If I should use his own words when he came to me, he [Bro Ben] said that the number of tablets in the mix were up to twenty.

30.        I asked him about the drug he took and he said that they were too many and may be up to twenty, both expired and potent drugs. He said that the patent medicine dealer told him to take some in Enugu there and then take the remaining ones the next morning when he gets home.

31.        He then took the first batch there at the patent medicine shop and put the other ones inside the vehicle, thinking that he will drive back to Onitsha in the vehicle.

32.        Within 30 minutes, he started sweating profusely and he started feeling dizzy. He kept struggling with life. He did not know the possibility of driving back home in the vehicle.

33.        Then, he left the vehicle in Enugu because if he had attempted driving back in that vehicle, he would have died inside the vehicle. He then took a tricycle [Keke] to where he will get a public transport back to Onitsha.

34.        He got there and that was where the worst now happened. After paying his fare, he then came to board the bus. He stooped to enter the bus, not knowing that his head has not properly entered into the bus. He sat down and then raised his head, only to hit the door frame.

35.        You know his head was clean-shaven. He hit the door frame with the back of his head. That area of the head got inflamed and bulged out immediately.

36.        You can then imagine someone who was feeling dizzy and tired, looking for where he will just sit down in the vehicle and relax.

37.        But on raising his head suddenly, he hit it on the metal door frame of the bus. Our Brother fainted inside the bus. The co-passengers in the bus were then the people that revived him using pure water as they were praying.

38.        A good Samaritan disembarked with him at Borromeo roundabout, and followed him as well as helping him to get a Keke that brought him to his house. That was how he came back to his house in Onitsha. The family kept praying until Saturday morning.

39.        Then Our Brethren went to the house as I instructed them to do to pay him a visit and to know how he was faring. Bro Kelechi reported that he was lying prostrate like a dead man. He was not talking. Neither was he responding to any call.

40.        Apostle Kelechi called me on the phone to tell Me that he had called Bro Ben severally but without any response. I told him that his method is not the way to call an unconscious person.

41.        I instructed him to stay a little away from him and not placing his mouth so close to the ears, “Shout it loud! Call him, “Bro Ben Mbah!” If you call him three times, he will answer to one of the calls.”

42.        So. Apostle Kelechi did as I instructed, shouting Bro Ben’s name. At the third call, Bro Ben answered. Apostle Kelechi commanded him to open his eyes. He opened his eyes and his eyes were pure red. This was how he was called back to life.

43.         He then calmly sat down and he was given water to drink. He body was later cleaned up. He was interviewed, but he will speak a little and keep quiet again.

44.        When I realized what happened, I instructed that he should not go to hospital for if they take him to the hospital and he is given any injection, he will die.

45.        This is because nobody knows the type and exact quantity drugs he took. They were many. If he gets there and they give him injection at the hospital thinking that he has malaria fever, he must die.

46.        And nothing will ever compel him to tell the doctor what he actually took. Immediately he mentions it, the doctor will tell you to take him home, for it is a risk.

47.        This was the way we continued until God answered our prayers. By Monday, he got better. On Tuesday, I then told him to come to My house with his wife, along with Bro Solomon.

48.        He came and we were all there. He now gave Me the whole details of what transpired. We were now talking under normal condition, praising God that he was healed with ordinary water.

49.        Due to the fact that I had already seen where the whole thing was tilting to, I then instructed all our Brethren that were around to bring out their handsets, for I will speak concerning Bro Ben so that you will know where we started, the series of My Word to him which fell on deaf ears, the thing that befell him and the possible outcome.

50.        Everybody pulled out his phone. These include Bro Solomon, Bro Elias, Bishop Nnachor. That was why I instructed that they should record all that I was about to say, all that the wife will say, as well as what Bro Ben will say.

51.        Well, I thank God. Pastor Chizoba, you told Me that Bro Solomon was transcribing it; which means that you know about it. Did I not instruct you to make sure that he transfers the Voice file to your own phone?

52.        [Pastor Chizoba: “The file he [Solomon] gave me is a video file.]

53.        Video? Why is he giving you a video file? So, he recorded it as video. Retain it in that video format and also audio format because the outcome of the situation we are faced with is an ugly one.

54.        I had seen the outcome and that was why I wanted everything to be recorded, in case of any eventuality, because Bro Ben is surrounded by many enemies.

55.        Bro Ben is in the Faith quite alright, but he is fighting a very difficult battle. If eventually Bro Ben dies, let Me tell you the truth, to bury him will be a very difficult task.

56.        That was why We fought tooth and nail to revive him so that with his own mouth, he will tell his people what actually transpired.

57.        But in case we do not find what we are looking for, we will lay hold on the one we have already. We are in possession of his testimony. He is not talking now, but we have recordings of the testimony he gave before now.

58.        So, we continued. He was thanking Me. His wife was thanking Me. Even Sister Ozioma was not left out in the thanksgiving.

59.        Bro Kelechi’s wives have been going to visit him in his house. Bro Kelechi went there in the morning of yesterday. They discussed at length. After which, he escorted Apostle Kelechi when he was leaving.

60.        But Bro Ben is still complaining that he is still experiencing pains at the back of his head. Each time he says it, I will tell him that it is expected. And that it is not something that will just heal in a twinkling of an eye.

61.         But talk of the drug overdose and every other thing, God has already taken control. He was not having fever.

I thank God that I am not even your Messenger. Do not call Me your Messenger, otherwise you make a mistake. You have a Messenger of your day. I am not the one. I am alone. That is why I do not preach so that you believe. I preach the truth I know in love and I leave it there. If you want to believe it, you believe. If you do not want to believe, leave it there. In the end, you will know that I am He.

GOD KNOWS THE END FROM

THE VERY BEGINNING

Then his wife called Me yesterday as I was in council with some Elders. She was calling at the same time Chinedu was calling Me from America. And both calls were clashing.

2.           When the wife called Me, she told me that her husband was relapsing into the former condition and that his condition was getting critical.

3.           I then instructed her to give the phone to Bro Ben. She did and I asked him what was happening. He started talking, telling Me that it was still the same pain at the back of his head which he had complained to Me about.

4.           I asked him again, “Is there any other thing happening to you?” He said no. I said, “Ok. Go with your wife to hospital for checkup.” He retorted, “What?” I told him to go to hospital for checkup and then ended the call.

5.           A little while again, he called Me and wanted a confirmation that I instructed him to go to hospital. I answered, “Yes” and ended the call.

6.           He called again and I told him to stop disturbing Me, “I have told you, “Go to hospital for checkup!”” And I closed the chapter.

7.           Pastor Thomas then called Bro Ben with his own phone to talk to him. It turned out that the number Pastor Thomas had was not going through at all. Then with My own phone we got him.

8.           I then handed over the phone to Pastor Thomas. Bro Chibuko and the rest were there present.

9.           I never knew that Bro Ben reasoned with his wife that they will not go to any hospital. They decided that they will not go to hospital. Reason being that Daddy said that if he is taken to the hospital and they dare give him injection, that Bro Ben will die.

10.        Brethren, have you seen the thing that kills people. The order I gave on Saturday because of his condition which had already been thoroughly handled and he is well again.

11.        It was only the pain from the trauma to his head that is yet to be resolved. Then I told him to go to hospital for checkup, for when he gets there they must conduct a scan or x-ray, lest the skull cracked and nobody knows, for he had a clean shave of his entire head.

12.        He refused entirely to go to hospital for checkup. So he continued arguing with his wife until about 7:30 in the evening of yesterday, and Bro Ben relapsed into coma. He is still in come, even now.

13.        He is yet to open his mouth or his eyes. He has not taken even water up till now. They now went to hospital by force. Their co-tenants in the yard were now involved, plus Bro Kelechi whom I instructed to rush to the place along with Bro Iyke and Bro Solomon in the Keke.

14.        I instructed them to take him to the nearest hospital. By the time they got there, Bro Ben’s co-tenants were already taking him to the hospital.

15.        They now went to Dr. Okolo’s hospital at Awka Road by Osuma. That was where they ended up very late in the night as a result of the same argument. They got there around after 9pm.

16.        They checked his BP and it was good. The BP they got is not the type that can put someone into coma. I do not see anything bad with a BP of 160/90. Some people’s BP can get as high as 300 or even more. There was a time My BP was 320/120.

17.        There was a time Bro Shadrach’s BP was up to 400. Bro Kelechi has had his own experience. We have all been there at one time or the other. With My BP that high, I stayed in the pulpit for a very long time unknowingly.

18.        So, Bro Ben’s condition was not as a result of high blood pressure. They checked his blood sugar and it was normal.

19.        The doctor then suggested that they will give him infusion and then bring down the blood pressure the base line, at least to 130/80. I told them to do whatever the doctor says they should do.

20.        But these things they are checking are not the cause of Bro Ben’s illness. I then called Bro Kelechi and enquired whether Bro Ben’s wife actually told the doctor how all these things started. He said, no. I then pressed on, “What about you? Can’t you tell the nurses or tell the doctor himself of the condition we all met Bro Ben?”

21.        I then pleaded with them to go to the nurses, since the doctor had left the hospital so that I myself will tell the person how it all started and so that the wife will confirm it, for the doctor will be managing his BP while what is killing Bro Ben is quite different.

22.        I told My wife that what is killing Bro Ben is the trauma from hitting the back of his head on the door frame of the bus, and that there is a likelihood that it is bleeding inside the skull, for there may have been a crack.

23.        This information was then given to the nurses in details. Then the nurses called the doctor and informed him. The doctor said that they should leave him [Ben] that way, but that he will be in the hospital very early in the morning.

24.        The doctor also instructed that the Brethren should be on ground because he is going to be taken to the Teaching hospital at Nnewi for scanning of the brain, while blaming them for not telling him ab initio. This is because the doctor was actually managing BP.

25.        So, this was the condition when finally, they called Me this morning and told Me to speak with the Matron. While talking with the Matron, I told her how the whole thing started.

26.        I then enquired whether he cannot be sent to any other place in Onitsha, instead of carrying him to the Teaching Hospital at Nnewi for the brain scan. She told Me that there is a place and that the place is called New Hope.

27.        I said, “Ok. When the doctor comes then, for we cannot go to any place without a referral letter.” Be it New Hope or Nnewi, the doctor must write the type of scan he wants to be done.

28.        It is not a situation where we will just go and they will fix his head for the scan, since his neck is stiff.” As I am talking to you now, his neck is stiff.

29.        So, finally the doctor came around and said that we will not go to Nnewi again. There was a place he mentioned which is inside the General Hospital Onitsha, and then instructed that we should take him there. He wrote a referral letter stating the type of scan he wants done.

30.        This is what had occupied Me since morning. We took him to General and the scan had been concluded. There was nothing else we saw other than what we are supposed to see.

31.        I have called Bro Ojiakor. We have been shouting. It turned out that that trauma to the head broke the inner skull and internal bleeding covered the brain. And it is still bleeding. It is not hidden. One can see it.

32.        So the brain has been covered by blood clot. This is what closed both his eyes and his mouth, for there is no connection.

33.        We have already called his biological sister Ozioma Ukaejiofor. She was on her way to board a vehicle when I sent her back, for the journey is not the type you will make with just a handbag. No!

34.        The handbag must contain money. I then commanded her to go back and get better prepared.

35.        By the grace of God, it turned out that her son Oremus, who is a medical doctor was also in Enugu. So he gave us the phone number of a doctor at the Teaching Hospital, Nnewi.

36.        As I am talking to you right now, the doctor had already given us a referral letter to Nnewi Teaching Hospital, for neurotic operation [neurosurgery]. If you know what neurotic operation means, then there will not be any need for Me to say any other thing.

37.        What? You said something.

38.        [Bro Ifeanyi Enemuo said, “We are talking about millions here.”]

39.        Whether he survives the surgery or not, it must take millions. Not million, but millions. There is ‘s’ attached to the million. The deposit you have to pay before the surgery is ₦2.5 million.

40.        But how many people went in for the surgery and walked out alive? This is another question. Has anybody ever survived it to tell the story of his travails? It is a big question.

41.        Is it that people go there to fulfill all righteousness, so that it would not seem as if the person was abandoned in the house? That was why I gave the order, “Do not step an inch until Sister Ozioma arrives, with Ben’s wife there.

42.        Start calling one of his brothers in Umunze to ensure that at least there will be one person that will wait for them at Nnewi. Otherwise, whoever that takes him there, will bear the whole troubles of the aftermath.”

43.        His office was called and My Word came to pass. The owner of the company where he works was called on the phone. Sister Ben said that the man did not even allow her to say anything.

44.        She only informed the man of his employee’s illness and that they have taken him to the hospital. The man shouted on her, “Do not be silly!”

45.        He ordered her to make sure that she returns the vehicle keys today by all possible means, either through the Onitsha office or that of Enugu.

46.        I shouted, “Even the Best driver?” I then asked Bro Ben’s wife, “Has My Word come to pass?” She said, “Daddy, exactly as you said it.” Bishop, were you not there? Did I not say it even when the land was still level?

47.        Bro Ben knelt down that day and said that it was the matter at stake, even now. I will not speak more there for I have documented it before all these developments.

48.        Whether good or bad, Bro Ben’s problem is no longer the drug over dose, but the trauma from hitting the back his head on the door frame of a bus.

49.        It had happened to Me before at Uga Junction when I was still in the civil service. I was going for inspection in Atani Road. I then entered a bus. I did not know that I had not entered into the bus properly.

50.        Immediately I raise my heads the thing hit My head back. It got inflamed immediately, forming a lump. This thing happened close to where they sell rods.

51.        The young men inside the vehicle pressed the lump back with their palm. I was weeping like a baby and even My bag fell off from My hands.

52.        So they pressed it down until I regained Myself a little. It was still bulging out until I came back from work. There is something to learn.

53.        Whether you are passing through the door of your house or entering a vehicle, or anything that has a door, please, please, please, bend very well. And if you have not entered very well, do not attempt raising your head. Do not ever be in a haste.

54.        We are no more talking about the drugs Bro ben took. What we are talking about now is the effect of the door frame of the bus he entered. Bro Ben is not suffering from BP. He is not suffering from malaria or typhoid.

55.         Bro Ben’s problem is that he hit his head on the door frame of a bus unknowingly. Accident!

56.        So, it is very important that I explain to you the level we are at the moment because, as for managing crisis, we have managed it enough. At least, we have managed it for seven days.

57.        I want everybody to have it at the back of his or her mind that we have a challenge on hand. A very big challenge.

58.        Begin to consider what the situation will be like if Bro Ben is no more. Consider the wife and his children with the level of hatred against Bro Ben in Umunze. I cannot talk about that of his office.

59.        So, if you love Bro Ben, pray for him. I do not know whether we will get to this Nnewi and come back with him alive. Or will it be from Nnewi to Umunze.  That is what I cannot say.

60.        But be it known to you that he is still lying critical in the hospital where we are waiting for his eldest sister to come, so that we can have one of his siblings that will keep his wife company.

61.        We cannot take any decision on our own. We do not have that capacity. It is not even proper. We will be blamed badly.

62.        So, it is better the way it is. When his siblings come, his wife will be the one to narrate the whole thing to them along with their co-tenants. Then we can all carry him to Nnewi together.

63.        There is nothing he needs now more than prayers. Even if we stack money from here to River Niger, it is good, but it would not solve the problem now.

64.        As for money, we will spend money. Even in that hospital where he had been since yesterday, will the doctor allow us to take him away without paying the bills?

65.        But that one is not our problem for now. What we are bothered about is what we saw in the sonography. It is very frightening. Thank you!

66.        Do not be disheartened. The number of people in a family represents the number of graves in that family. Thank you!
