BEHOLH THE LORD'S CHRIST VOL 1

APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA

BEHOLH THE LORD’S CHRIST VOL 1 ON 5 JUNE 2021 @ Household Of God Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. BY BISHOP CHIDUBEM JONATHAN APPROVED AND AUTHORIZED BY THE SON OF MAN THE RIGHTEOUS BRANCH

 I am sent just for one purpose: To open your eyes of understanding so that your sacrifice can be acceptable unto the true God. You can worship God rightly, not in the old way of following letters that kill, for the letters kill. ....... The Supreme God that created the Heavens and the Earth is in the midst of the Bride. He is not too far from you. He is always with us,

constantly with us, watching us, programming our footsteps. He is the one that has taken us to this particular point where we are now. I am saying that I am HE. Your unbelief or belief cannot change it. We are not confronting anybody, but everything is on the run. Amen.

BEHOLD THE LORD’S CHRIST

Let me first of all thank the Almighty God Who has given me this great opportunity to come your way again.

2.           Sojourning with the Almighty God is the greatest privilege any man can have on earth. Recognizing Him in the midst of the entire world population can only take Him opening your eyes for you to behold Him.

3.           Without wasting time follow me to the Book of St. Luke chapter two verse 21-26 where I will take my text. Luke 2:21-26; 40

4.           And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

5.           22And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord; 23 

6.           (as it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) 24 and to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons. 

7.           25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. 

8.           26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.

9.           40“And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him. (Luke 2:40 KJV)

10.       This is a very familiar story of what happened when Jesus was taken to the Temple for His presentation rite. It was after His mother’s purification on His fortieth day according to Levitical Order in Leviticus Chapter 12.

11.       Simeon was waiting for the appearance of the Christ just as many others were waiting. Yes, they had been told about His appearance; He that will deliver Israel from their troubles.

12.        So, they knew that their problem can never be over unless He appears. Verse 26 says that it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he Simeon will not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ”.

13.       Suddenly, one day he saw a child, a forty-day old, just an infant and he was moved to declare Him the Lord’s Christ saying

14.       “Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: for mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; a light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.

15.       An infant laying helplessly in the hands of the Mother. He exclaimed out of joy, BEHOLD THE LORD’S CHRIST!

16.       You can begin to imagine what was going on in the heart of the onlookers. Some could be wondering whether Simeon was still in his right senses or referring to somebody else.

17.       But for Simeon, he was sure and certain that he had seen the Lord’s Christ; that Infant laying helplessly in the hand of the mother Mary, depending on her for her feeding and protection.

18.       Remember that when Herod wanted to kill Him; when He was two years old it was the mother, Mary that carried Him to run in other to preserve His life – The Lord’s Christ.

19.        The word “The Lord” which is spelled “Kurios,” means essentially “the Supreme One!” That’s YHWH, Yahweh or Jehovah in this context.

20.       In addition, according to Britannica.com, “Christ was not originally a name, but a TITLE derived from the Greek word christos, which translates the Hebrew term meshiah (Messiah), meaning “the anointed one.”

21.       This TITLE indicates that Jesus’ followers believed him to be the anointed son of King David, whom some Jews expected to restore the fortunes of Israel”

22.       It means that Christ is SOMEONE OR SOMEBODY (A NORMAL HUMAN BEING) THAT IS ANOINTED, APPOINTED, DESIGNATED, ORDAINED, SET APART FOR A PURPOSE.

23.       THUS, THE LORD’S CHRIST IS THE PERSON, SOMEONE OR SOMEBODY (A HUMAN BEING) WHOM GOD HIMSELF CONSECRATED AND SET APART AS AN INSTRUMENT OR CHANNEL IN, WITH AND THROUGH WHOM HE, THE ALMIGHTY, HIMSELF CAN CARRY OUT A SPECIAL, DEFINITE, SPECIFIC, PROMISED, AWAITED DIVINE TASK(S) OR ASSIGNMENT(S) DURING THE PERSON’S LIFETIME HERE ON EARTH.

24.       For instance, if you want to cook with cooking gas you have to trap it in a container, we call it gas cylinder or tank from where it will be piped to the required point.

25.       Under normal condition you cannot see cooking gas with your natural eyes, neither can you hold or handle it. It is like air which is around us but you cannot see it.

26.       You only feel it when it moves as wind. You may not see it but it is there. However, immediately gas is subjected under certain conditions it condenses, liquifies and can be collected in a bottle.

27.       It is only then you can handle, see, touch, carry and utilize the gas as you wish. We call it gas cylinder because it is carrying gas, it makes the invisible gas visible and available for our use.

28.       If you shake the cylinder you will think it is liquid but if you open it to collect the liquid, the whole thing will disappear like a spirit.

29.       More so, no matter the quantity of gas in it or the size of the vessel, the gas takes exact shape of the vessel. When the vessel is without any content you can identify it as just a cylinder but immediately it is filled and your are asked, “what are your carrying? You can just say: it is gas. The content now defines the entire system.

30.       When God wanted to go down to Egypt to deliver the people of Israel, He made Moses the vessel through which He would achieve it; the pipeline, the cylinder to transport Him so that He can interact with them and be of help to them.

31.       Let us go to the Book of Exodus Chapter 3:7-8. 7And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;

32.        8And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites. Exodus 3:7-8 KJV.

33.       Verse 8 says, 8I AM COME DOWN TO DELIVER THEM OUT OF THE HAND OF THE EGYPTIANS …I have come to deliver or rescue them. Let us go down a little bit there, to verse 10.

34.       10Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.

35.       I want you to see the shift in syntax: verse 8 says I have come down to deliver … to bring them out of that land (Egypt). Who plays the role here? THE LORD.

36.       So, Moses was happy that the LORD wants to go down and bring his brethren out while he (Moses) may remain and wait for them until they come out.

37.       However, in verse 10 the grammar changed to I will send THEE … that THOU mayest bring forth my people. Immediately Moses interjected with a question in verse 11.

38.       11And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?

39.       God, you just said You want to go; how come You are changing Your mind now to send Me? God said, Moses calm down, understand the concept first. Go to verse 12.

40.       12And he (THE LORD) said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.

41.        CERTAINLY, SURELY, I, THE LORD WILL BE WITH YOU. Moses became relaxed so, discussion continued in verse 13 13And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?

42.       A very important question for every god or God must have a name. Using upper case G is mere semantic.

43.       Anybody worshipping any God whose name he does not know is merely presumptuous or superstitious and this is the root of idolatry.

44.        In other words, you worship what you do not know, as Jesus told the Samaritan woman, and your worship cannot be acceptable.

45.       Let us continue. And they shall say to me, what is his name? what shall I say unto them? Verse 14

46.       14And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.

47.       God said to Moses, “I AM THAT I AM,” "I AM WHO I AM," "I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE, but to the children of Israel you shall say “I AM”.

48.       Now the question arises since I (AM) is singular first-person pronoun like “me”, what does this connote? Consider below conversation going on between Moses and the Children of Israel.

49.       Children of Israel: What is the name of the God you are talking about? Moses: I AM.

50.       Does it not sound paradoxical? If one understands it to mean that the Person responding to that question is the very present God Himself will you blame him? Is this not enough stumbling block? You said that God met You somewhere and now tell us the name of the God, you say “I AM”.

51.       Some will be saying, “is this not that Moses that was picked up by riverbank who was living in Pharaoh’s palace, who even killed an Egyptian the other day and later ran away?

52.        He must have got some more powers somewhere in addition to the one he got from Pharaoh and has come to make himself something among us. Anyway, let’s watch and see.

53.       So, some of them instead of believing Him became spectators, watching to see and that’s why they never ceased from complaining.

I AM THE LORD; I CHANGETH NOT SAITH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. FOR THAT REASON, YOU CHILDREN OF JACOB ARE NOT CONSUMED. YOU CHILDREN OF ISRAEL; WHEN I SAY, JACOB, I MEAN ISRAEL. WHEN I SAY, ISRAEL I MEAN GOD’S FAVORITES, WHETHER THEY ARE RELOCATED IN THE MIDDLE EAST OR IN THE NORTH EAST OR SOUTH EAST OR SOUTH-SOUTH; WHEREVER THEY ARE FOUND, THEY HAVE NO OTHER NAME THAN ISRAEL.

I AM THE LORD, I CHANGETH NOT

I AM THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY

 

Thus, shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you. Follow me to Mark Chapter 5:1-20 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.

2.           2And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: 

3.           4because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.

4.            5And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

5.            6But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, 7and cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. 

6.           8For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. 9And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. 

7.           10And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. 11Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. 

8.           12And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13And forthwith Jesus gave them leave.

9.           And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

10.       From above scripture, it can be seen that the conversation was between Jesus and the Legion (numerous evil spirits) that possessed the gentleman.

11.        It is the Demon that was directing his thoughts, words and actions. It is easy to believe that someone can be possessed by evil spirit (Devil) with all his characteristics (thoughts, words and action actions) attributed to the evil spirit to the point of calling the man by the name of the evil spirit; But to believe the same for the Good or Holy Spirit (God) is almost impossible.

12.       The man was anointed by Legion who was using the man’s mouth to talk. Thus, it was not the man talking but the Legion in him. Jesus asked, “What is your name?” “I am Legion”, the man replied.

13.       Moses what is the Name of the God that met you? I AM. Remember that in Exodus 4:15 the LORD told him that HE the Lord will be with his mouth.

14.       15And thou shalt speak unto him and put words in his mouth: and I WILL BE WITH THY MOUTH, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.

15.       Moses is to put words into Aaron’s mouth but as for Moses his mouth is no longer his own to control. As the steering is in the hand of a professional driver so Moses’ mouth has become in the hand of Almighty God.

16.       Another Being greater than Him has taken over his mouth. That is why verse 16 says And he (Aaron) shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God (KJV).

17.        Orthodox Jewish Bible says, And he (Aaron) shall be thy spokesman unto the people; and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of Elohim.  (OJB)

18.       Do not forget the fact that Aaron was the elder brother to Moses but now Moses has become to him instead of God (Elohim). Thus, for Aaron whatever he knew about God should begin to change to Moses.

19.       Assuming you have a document where references are made to God and you were asked to use Moses instead of God what does it mean? It means wherever you see God replace with Moses.

20.       Please let us set aside all religious sentiments as we move ahead. Let us see Exodus Chapter 7:1 And the Lord said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet (KJV).

21.        It has now become very clear how He the Almighty went down to Egypt. His Name was Moses. So, Moses became God over the entire Egypt including the Children of Israel.

22.       It is He, Moses with Aaron his Prophet that would determine whatever become of the Children of Israel and the Egyptians. Their fates were in the hands of Moses.

23.        You see why he was told to respond I AM as the Name of the God that met him. I AM WHAT I AM (today) AND I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE (tomorrow). But for today I AM. Today if you hear His Voice… Amen.

24.       Remember these were shadows of the good things to come in the future according to the Scripture. Moses’ mission is definite, foretold or prophesied, tied to time and events. Thus, His appearance was being awaited as it was declared to Abraham.

25.       Let us go to Genesis Chapter 15:13-16. And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;

26.        14 and also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judgeTHAT NATION, WHOM THEY SHALL SERVE, WILL I (THE LORD HIMSELF WILL) JUDGE and afterward shall they come out with great substance. 

27.       15And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. 16But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full Genesis 15:13-16 KJV.

28.       We can see that it never took God by surprise. He had already purposed and planned for the day HE THE ALMIGHTY will go down to Egypt and judge Pharaoh and his people.

29.       Thus, from that day the plan of how to achieve it was put in place. God is the Best of all planners.

30.       The lot fell on no other person but Moses and at the appointed time he manifested; Jochebed became pregnant, Moses was born and God positionally placed him where he will receive all the necessary trainings and discipline for the task ahead.

31.       13Then Jehovah told Abram, “Your descendants will be oppressed as slaves in a foreign land for 400 years. 14But I will punish the nation that enslaves them, and at the end they will come away with great wealth.

32.        15(But you will die in peace, at a ripe old age.) 16After four generations they will return here to this land; for the wickedness of the Amorite nations living here now will not be ready for punishment until then.” Genesis 15:13-16 LB. The Lord says of a surety the time he allotted for Abraham’s seed to be in a strange land, serve the people of the land, and be afflicted by them must be fulfilled; in all a total of four hundred years.

33.       So, anything less than this is either preparatory, counterfeit or phonies aimed at deceiving the people.

34.       40Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. 

35.       41And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt Exodus 12:40-41 KJV.

36.       17-18“As the time drew near when God would fulfill his promise to Abraham to free his descendants from slavery, the Jewish people greatly multiplied in Egypt; but then a king was crowned who had no respect for Joseph’s memory. 19This king plotted against our race, forcing parents to abandon their children in the fields.

37.       20“About that time Moses was born—a child of divine beauty. His parents hid him at home for three months, 21and when at last they could no longer keep him hidden and had to abandon him, Pharaoh’s daughter found him and adopted him as her own son,

38.        22and taught him all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and he became a mighty prince and orator. Acts 7:17-22 LB.

39.       As the time drew near when God will fulfil His promise to Abraham many things started happening. The Jewish people multiplied, a king who had no respect for Joseph’s memory was crowned, oppression started. Just about that time a child, a son was born.

40.       Note that as at the time the child was born, they still have up to eighty (80) more years to remain in oppression before they will be delivered. No matter how they cried, God’s time must be fulfilled.

41.       The most important thing is that it MUST HAPPEN IN MOSES’ LIFETIME. As long as Moses is alive the promise is not overdue. After all He is a part of the promise, He is a beneficiary also. His appearance is the sign for the people.

42.       The child was later dumped and abandoned only to be picked and adopted by Pharaoh’s daughter thereby bringing obscurity to his descent.

43.       Circumstances surrounding Moses birth and upbringing notwithstanding, He remained the Deliverer to children of Israel and the Judge to Pharaoh and the Egyptians.

44.       This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush Acts 7:35 KJV

45.       And so, God sent back the same man his people had previously rejected by demanding, ‘Who made you a ruler and judge over us?’ MOSES WAS SENT TO BE THEIR RULER AND SAVIOR Acts 7:35 LB.

46.       MOSES WAS SENT TO BE THEIR RULER AND SAVIOUR! THEIR KING AND THEIR SAVIOUR – THE SAME MAN.

47.       So, their rejection of the MAN, their unbelief and hard heartedness toward Him never changed anything. Accepting him is rather for their own good, it is for their deliverance, it is for their salvation.

48.        But those who refused him all perished and were consumed in the judgement. Amen. I am laying a background to refresh ourselves putting us in remembrance of what we have been taught.

49.       Time and space will not permit me to talk about other Anointed Ones (Christs or Messiahs, Deliverers, Saviours) who appeared in various dispensations in various capacities depending on their missions according to Nehemiah chapter 9:26-27

50.       26Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against thee, and cast thy law behind their backs, and slew thy prophets which testified against them to turn them to thee, and they wrought great provocations.

51.        27Therefore thou deliveredst them into the hand of their enemies, who vexed them: and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and according to thy manifold mercies thou gavest them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies Nehemiah 9:26-27 KJV.

IF YOU FAINT, FEAR NOT. I AM HERE. IF YOU SLUMP DOWN, FEAR NOT. I AM IN YOUR MIDST. IF YOU RUN MAD, FEAR NOT. I AM IN YOUR MIDST. IF TROUBLE ARISES WHEN YOU GET HOME WITH YOUR CHILDREN OR WITH YOU, CALL MY NUMBER… AS LONG AS I AM HERE, I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. WHOEVER THAT FOLLOWS ME CAN NEVER WALK IN DARKNESS. THE LIGHT IS HERE, NOT IN THE SKY. THEY THINK THEY ARE PROJECTING. THEY ARE NOT PROJECTING ANYTHING.

BEHOLD THE LORD WHOM YOU DESIRES, WHOM YOU

ARE SEEKING 

Let us go back to our text St Luke’s Gospel Chapter 2:26. Simeon may not have known Jesus’ background even His name as Jesus, Simeon did not also care to ask or know but recognized Him as the LORD’s Christ.

2.           Whether He was born in the ghetto or under questionable condition or of virgin birth was none of his concerns. It is just like John the Baptist when he cried out that he never knew who He was but Him Who sent Him gave Him a sign with which to recognize Him.

3.            So, the Holy Ghost that gave Simeon the revelation must have given him a sign too. Thus, he is only concerned about the Divine Content of that Vessel which is the purpose for the container – The LORD’S Christ.

4.           The event never happened by chance. It was prophesied with every necessary detail about the place it will happen. Simeon followed the guidance of the Scripture; he followed the guidance of the Holy Ghost.

5.           This happened according to the prophecy of Malachi. Let us see Malachi chapter three, Mal. 3:1

6.           “Listen: I will send my messenger before me to prepare the way. And then the One[a] you are looking for will come suddenly to his Temple—the Messenger of God’s promises, to bring you great joy. Yes, he is surely coming,” says the Lord Almighty Mal. 3:1 KJV.

7.           The One you are looking for. Simeon has been looking for Him right from the day it was revealed to him that he will not die until he sees Him. Eventually, He has come but in a very simple way as a baby and Simeon was satisfied.

8.           Behold, I send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me. And the Lord [the Messiah], Whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple;

9.            the Messenger or Angel of the covenant, Whom you desire, behold, He shall come, says the Lord of hosts Mal. 3:1 AMP.

10.       Thus, no other person came but the Lord Himself hiding in that infant, body, vessel or container called Jesus Who was just 40-day old.

11.       The container (body) is young, but the Content is Ancient. A container is nothing but the packaging item designed to convey its content to the desired recipient.

12.        In time past malt drinks like Maltina were distributed in glass bottles. After a while, they added canned ones. Today some are in paper packs and even plastic containers, but the malt contents have remained the same: no change in recipe, no change in taste.

13.       It is just like a baby who has been used to drinking Sprite from green coloured container; what do you think he will do if you give him the one in the new transparent bottle which looks like ordinary water or soda water? Surely, he will tell you that it is not sprite because he is used to green coloured packages: a display of naivety.

14.       And the Lord (Messiah) whom you are seeking, the One Whom they have sought all their lives appeared, but they failed to recognize Him.

15.       However, Simeon saw Him and exclaimed, Behold the LORD’s Christ! The scripture says the Messenger of the Covenant. Who is a messenger?

16.       A messenger is one who bears a message or runs an errand: such as forerunner, herald. This is why Paul in Hebrews says that Jesus went in first as a forerunner. He came to announce the coming of the Kingdom.

17.       It is thus very clear that we are not expecting any other person but the Almighty Himself, The Elohim, The Everlasting Father, Jehovah, YaHWeH. However, the problem would be how to identify Him when He comes.

18.       Remember He must come according to Scriptures, it must be according to Time, it must be according to Prophecy and His mission or commission Specific.

19.       If it was not foretold, promised or prophesied, you don’t expect it for God can do nothing without first of all declaring it to His servants the prophet.

20.       Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets Amos 3:7 KJV.

21.       Let us go back to the Origin. Before I proceed, I want you to maintain an open and positive mind as the discourse is intended to be a “NO HOLDS BARRED” session.

22.       What I mean is that I will go universal as much as I can with no restrictions to a particular religion or book as this matter affects everybody irrespective of your religion, race, colour and so on.

23.       Meanwhile, why is the Christ, Messiah, Deliverer needed? Why are we expecting the Christ or Messiah or Saviour? Is there a cause? Let us see. Genesis chapter 3 from verse 1-8; 22-24.

24.       1Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 

25.       2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

26.        4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

27.        6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 

28.       7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons.

29.       And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 

30.       23therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 

31.       24So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life Genesis 3:1-8; 22-24 KJV.

32.       From above Scripture it is evident that something happened: Adam (Man) lost his dignified estate in the Garden of Eden, God’s Paradise.

33.       He was thrown out from a place of Life and Peace to death and crisis because of his disobedience to God. Man lost the power and dominion God gave him over His creation.

34.       He lost the Glory God clothed him with. He did not appreciate the value until he lost it. Thus, he was desirous of regaining it. Let us go to First Book of Adam and Eve by Rutherford Blatt Chapter 2:1-5

35.       But when our father Adam, and Eve, went out of the garden, they walked the ground on their feet, not knowing they were walking.

36.       And when they came to the opening of the gate of the garden, and saw the broad earth spread before them, covered with stones large and small, and with sand, they feared and trembled, and fell on their faces, from the fear that came over them; and they were as dead.

37.       3Because—whereas until this time they had been in the garden land, beautifully planted with all manner of trees—they now saw themselves, in a strange land, which they knew not, and had never seen.

38.       4And because, when they were in the garden they were filled with the grace of a bright nature and they had not hearts turned toward earthly things.

39.       5Therefore God had pity on them; and when He saw them fallen before the gate of the garden, He sent His Word to our father, Adam and Eve, and raised them from their fallen state.

40.        Chapter 4:1-12. 1But Adam and Eve cried for having come out of the garden, their first home. 2And indeed, when Adam looked at his flesh, that was altered, he cried bitterly, he and Eve, over what they had done.

41.       And they walked and went gently down into the Cave of Treasures. 3And as they came to it, Adam cried over himself and said to Eve, "Look at this cave that is to be our prison in this world, and a place of punishment!

42.       4What is it compared with the garden? What is its narrowness compared with the space of the other? 5What is this rock, by the side of those groves?

43.        What is the gloom of this cavern, compared with the light of the garden? 6What is this overhanging ledge of rock to shelter us, compared with the mercy of the Lord that overshadowed us?

44.       7What is the soil of this cave compared with the garden land? This earth, strewed with stones; and that, planted with delicious fruit trees?"

45.       8And Adam said to Eve, "Look at your eyes, and at mine, which before beheld angels praising in heaven; and they too, without ceasing.

46.        9But now we do not see as we did; our eyes have become of flesh; they cannot see like they used to see before."

47.        10Adam said again to Eve, "What is our body today, compared to what it was in former days, when we lived in the garden?"

48.       11After this, Adam did not want to enter the cave, under the overhanging rock; nor would he ever want to enter it. 12But he bowed to God's orders; and said to himself, "Unless I enter the cave, I shall again be a transgressor."

49.       The same First Book of Adam and Eve Chapter 8:1-2 1Then Adam cried and said, "O God, when we lived in the garden, and our hearts were lifted up, we saw the angels that sang praises in heaven, but now we can't see like we used to; no, when we entered the cave, all creation became hidden from us."

50.        2Then God the Lord said to Adam, "When you were under subjection to Me, you had a bright nature within you, and for that reason could you see things far away.

51.       But after your transgression your bright nature was withdrawn from you; and it was not left to you to see things far away, but only near at hand; after the ability of the flesh; for it is brutish."

52.       From the above excerpts we have seen that mankind lost their glorified estate and are longing for restoration. The entire mankind because all proceeded from Adam.

53.       This is why Apostle Paul said that sin (death) entered into the world through one man (Adam). Therefore, as Adam continued to sorrow in repentance over time God out of compassion gave Adam the hope of restoration as a respite.

54.        He promised Adam that He the Almighty will come to save him and restore him to glory; to redeem him from the troubles he put himself because of his disobedience.

55.       Yes, Adam disobeyed God’s Word of Instruction and that was his transgression. Promise of salvation and restoration is made.

Glory be to God. If you refuse the personality God has introduced to you, you have indirectly or ignorantly rejected God. As many that said No to THE SON OF MAN, you have seen that THE SON OF MAN and the Father are One. Who do you think that they have rejected? Where will they end it at the end? When you reject the Saviour, can you be saved again? You cannot be saved without a Saviour. Can you save yourself? I AM YOUR SAVIOUR. I AM THE ONE SENT TO COME AND BRING YOU HOME. If you refuse to go with Me, I will abandon you. Finish! I do not beg you to follow. Prove for yourself whether I am He, the One you are waiting for or whether you should continue to wait for another.

SALVATION IS OF THE LORD 

Let us continue with the same Book, First Book of Adam and Eve Chapter 14 1Then Adam said to God: "O Lord, take You my soul, and let me not see this gloom any more; or remove me to some place where there is no darkness."

2.           2BUT GOD THE LORD SAID TO ADAM, "INDEED I SAY TO YOU, THIS DARKNESS WILL PASS FROM YOU, EVERY DAY I HAVE DETERMINED FOR YOU, UNTIL THE FULFILLMENT OF MY COVENANT; WHEN I WILL SAVE YOU AND BRING YOU BACK AGAIN INTO THE GARDEN, INTO THE HOUSE OF LIGHT YOU LONG FOR, IN WHICH THERE IS NO DARKNESS.

3.            I WILL BRING YOU TO IT—IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN." 3AGAIN SAID GOD TO ADAM, "ALL THIS MISERY THAT YOU HAVE BEEN MADE TO TAKE ON YOURSELF BECAUSE OF YOUR TRANSGRESSION, WILL NOT FREE YOU FROM THE HAND OF SATAN, AND WILL NOT SAVE YOU.

4.           4BUT I WILL. WHEN I SHALL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN, AND SHALL BECOME FLESH OF YOUR DESCENDANTS, AND TAKE ON MYSELF THE INFIRMITY FROM WHICH YOU SUFFER, THEN THE DARKNESS THAT COVERED YOU IN THIS CAVE SHALL COVER ME IN THE GRAVE, WHEN I AM IN THE FLESH OF YOUR DESCENDANTS.

5.           I AM THE ONE THAT WILL SAVE YOU, NOT THE MISERY YOU HAVE TAKEN ON YOURSELF, NO, NOT AT ALL. SALVATION IS OF THE LORD, I WILL NOT SEND AN ANGEL; NO. I WILL COME BY MYSELF.

6.           WHEN I SHALL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN, AND SHALL BECOME FLESH OF YOUR DESCENDANTS, FLESH OF YOUR DESCENDANT, ONE OF YOUR OWN SONS, NOT MERE ANGELIC BEING AND TAKE ON MYSELF THE INFIRMITY FROM WHICH YOU SUFFER, TO SHARE IN ALL YOUR EXPERIENCES OF SUFFERING AND INFIRMITIES, THEN THE DARKNESS THAT COVERED YOU IN THIS CAVE SHALL COVER ME IN THE GRAVE, IN OTHER WORDS HE WILL TASTE OF DEATH AND BE BURIED, WHEN I AM IN THE FLESH OF YOUR DESCENDANTS.

7.           AND I, WHO AM WITHOUT YEARS, SHALL BE SUBJECT TO THE RECKONING OF YEARS, OF TIMES, OF MONTHS, AND OF DAYS, AND I SHALL BE RECKONED AS ONE OF THE SONS OF MEN, IN ORDER TO SAVE YOU."

8.           AND I, THE ALMIGHTY, WHO AM WITHOUT YEARS, THE ETERNAL ONE, THE TIMELESS, SHALL BE SUBJECT TO THE RECKONING OF YEARS, OF TIMES, OF MONTHS, AND OF DAYS, AND I SHALL BE RECKONED AS ONE OF THE SONS OF MEN, SO HE SHALL BECOME A SON OF MAN, IN ORDER TO SAVE YOU.

9.            AS ONE OF THE SONS OF MEN, DO YOU KNOW THE NUMBER OR POPULATION OF SONS OF MEN IN THE WORLD TODAY? THE ALMIGHTY GOD IS ONE OF THEM AS THE SON OF MAN. YES SIR!

10.       THEN THE QUESTION ARISES, WHO WILL THIS SPECIAL MAN BE? This has been the greatest question of all times both in heaven and on earth.

11.       The angels are interested to know the Personality and the people that will live on earth in those days when the Almighty shall take flesh as one of the sons of men.

12.       The prophets have also inquired into this. In fact, that is the main hub of all prophecies. Meanwhile, when will this salvation come? What is the timetable like?

13.       Let us go back to the same First Book of Adam and Eve Chapter 22:1-6 1Then Adam said to God, "I dry up in the heat, I am faint from walking, and I don't want to be in this world. And I don't know when You will take me out of it to rest."

14.        2Then the Lord God said to him, "O Adam, it cannot be now, not until you have ended your days. Then shall I bring you out of this miserable land."

15.       O ADAM, IT CANNOT BE NOW, NOT UNTIL YOU HAVE ENDED YOUR DAYS. THE DAYS ALLOTTED MUST BE FULFILLED. THEN SHALL I BRING YOU OUT OF THIS MISERABLE LAND. Let us continue.

16.       3And Adam said to God, "While I was in the garden I knew neither heat, nor languor, neither moving about, nor trembling, nor fear; but now since I came to this land, all this affliction has come over me. 4Then God said to Adam, "So long as you were keeping My commandment, My light and My grace rested on you.

17.       But when you transgressed My commandment, sorrow and misery came to you in this land." 5And Adam cried and said, "O Lord, do not cut me off for this, neither punish me with heavy plagues, nor yet repay me according to my sin; for we, of our own will, transgressed Your commandment, and ignored Your law, and tried to become gods like you, when Satan the enemy deceived us."

18.       6THEN GOD SAID AGAIN TO ADAM, "BECAUSE YOU HAVE ENDURED FEAR AND TREMBLING IN THIS LAND, LANGUOR AND SUFFERING, TREADING AND WALKING ABOUT, GOING ON THIS MOUNTAIN, AND DYING FROM IT, I WILL TAKE ALL THIS ON MYSELF IN ORDER TO SAVE YOU."

19.       Chapter 24 of the same Book says.  1Then the merciful God, good and lover of men, looked at Adam and Eve, and at their blood, which they had held up as an offering to Him; without an order from Him for so doing.

20.       But He wondered at them; and accepted their offerings. 2And God sent from His presence a bright fire, that consumed their offering. 3He smelled the sweet savor of their offering and showed them mercy.

21.       THEN CAME THE WORD OF GOD TO ADAM, AND SAID TO HIM, "O ADAM, AS YOU HAVE SHED YOUR BLOOD, SO WILL I SHED MY OWN BLOOD WHEN I BECOME FLESH OF YOUR DESCENDANTS; AND AS YOU DIED, O ADAM, SO ALSO WILL I DIE.

22.       AND AS YOU BUILT AN ALTAR, SO ALSO WILL I MAKE FOR YOU AN ALTAR OF THE EARTH; AND AS YOU OFFERED YOUR BLOOD ON IT, SO ALSO WILL I OFFER MY BLOOD ON AN ALTAR ON THE EARTH.

23.        THIS WILL SERVE AS THE BRIDGE TO PAVE WAY FOR THE RESTORATION. 5And as you sued for forgiveness through that blood, so also will I make My blood forgiveness of sins, and erase transgressions in it.

24.        6AND NOW, BEHOLD, I HAVE ACCEPTED YOUR OFFERING, O ADAM, BUT THE DAYS OF THE COVENANT IN WHICH I HAVE BOUND YOU ARE NOT FULFILLED. WHEN THEY ARE FULFILLED, THEN WILL I BRING YOU BACK INTO THE GARDEN.

25.       NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, NO MATTER WHAT ADAM DOES, THE ALMIGHTY GOD HAS ALLOTED TIME AND SEASON FOR THIS TO TAKE PLACE AND THEY MUST BE FULFILLED.

26.        IT IS ONLY AFTER THE TIMES ARE FULFILLED THAT HE WILL BRING HIM BACK. Remember when the Apostles asked Jesus the same question thinking that the time was due, Jesus told them that it was not for them to know because it was not yet due, that times and seasons are set by God and must be fulfilled.

27.       Daniel enquired for the time. He was told that it was not for him to know, that he will sleep and wait for the time.

28.        Ezra enquired about the time and he got the same response. All the prophets that requested to know when it will happen were told that it will be at the time of the end.

29.       Habakkuk said it will surely come and will not delay even a single day. when God told Abraham that his seed shall be 400 years in a strange land after which He will bring them out, did He tell Abraham the particular year, month, week, day or hour? Those are His own preserve.

30.        The most important thing is that time has been allotted. Let us see if God allotted any time to Adam.

31.       Chapter 26 of First Book of Adam and Eve from verse 9. 9Then came the Word of God to Adam, and said to him, "Adam, as for the sun, if I were to take it and bring it to you, days, hours, years and months would all stop, and the covenant I have made with you, would never be fulfilled.

32.       10But then you would be deserted and stuck in a perpetual plague, and you would never be saved.

33.       11YES, RATHER, BEAR LONG AND CALM YOUR SOUL WHILE YOU LIVE NIGHT AND DAY; UNTIL THE FULFILMENT OF THE DAYS, AND THE TIME OF MY COVENANT IS COME.

34.       12THEN SHALL I COME AND SAVE YOU, O ADAM, FOR I DO NOT WISH THAT YOU BE AFFLICTED. 13And when I look at all the good things in which you lived, and why you came out of them, then would I willingly show you mercy.

35.       14BUT I CANNOT ALTER THE COVENANT THAT HAS GONE OUT OF MY MOUTH; OTHERWISE I WOULD HAVE BROUGHT YOU BACK INTO THE GARDEN.

36.       15WHEN, HOWEVER, THE COVENANT IS FULFILLED, THEN SHALL I SHOW YOU AND YOUR DESCENDANTS MERCY, AND BRING YOU INTO A LAND OF GLADNESS, WHERE THERE IS NEITHER SORROW NOR SUFFERING; BUT ABIDING JOY AND GLADNESS, AND LIGHT THAT NEVER FAILS, AND PRAISES THAT NEVER CEASE; AND A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN THAT SHALL NEVER PASS AWAY."

37.       Chapter 42 1Then came the Word of God to Adam, and said to him: — 2"O Adam, as to what you said, 'Bring me into a land where there is rest,' it is not another land than this, but it is the kingdom of heaven where alone there is rest.

38.       3BUT YOU CANNOT MAKE YOUR ENTRANCE INTO IT AT PRESENT; BUT ONLY AFTER YOUR JUDGMENT IS PAST AND FULFILLED. The time allotted must be fulfilled, completed or past.

39.       Only after then will the promise be realized. Has the promise been realized today? No. Sickness, pain, death, hunger, suffering are still the order of the day which means that restoration has not be completed.

40.       4THEN WILL I MAKE YOU GO UP INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, YOU AND YOUR RIGHTEOUS DESCENDANTS; AND I WILL GIVE YOU AND THEM THE REST YOU ASK FOR AT PRESENT.

41.       And if you said, 'Give me of the Water of Life that I may drink and live'—it cannot be this day, but on the day that I shall descend into hell, and break the gates of brass, and bruise in pieces the kingdoms of iron.

42.       6THEN WILL I IN MERCY SAVE YOUR SOUL AND THE SOULS OF THE RIGHTEOUS, TO GIVE THEM REST IN MY GARDEN. AND THAT SHALL BE WHEN THE END OF THE WORLD IS COME.

43.       We are coming to something please follow me patiently as we look at the same Book Chapter 3:1-6

44.       1GOD SAID TO ADAM, "I HAVE ORDAINED ON THIS EARTH DAYS AND YEARS, AND YOU AND YOUR DESCENDANTS SHALL LIVE AND WALK IN THEM, UNTIL THE DAYS AND YEARS ARE FULFILLED; WHEN I SHALL SEND THE WORD THAT CREATED YOU, AND AGAINST WHICH YOU HAVE TRANSGRESSED, THE WORD THAT MADE YOU COME OUT OF THE GARDEN, AND THAT RAISED YOU WHEN YOU WERE FALLEN.

45.       God ordained days and years on earth to enable him keep track of the time allotted for Adam’s punishment. After which He, God will send the same Word that created them and against which they transgressed, the same WORD.

46.        Can there be WORD without a man speaking it? In other words, the same God that spoke the WORD will come to man where man is through the MAN He has chosen for that.

47.       I HAVE ORDAINED ON THIS EARTH DAYS AND YEARS, AND YOU AND YOUR DESCENDANTS SHALL LIVE AND WALK IN THEM, UNTIL THE DAYS AND YEARS ARE FULFILLED; WHEN I SHALL SEND THE WORD THAT CREATED YOU, AND AGAINST WHICH YOU HAVE TRANSGRESSED, THE WORD THAT MADE YOU COME OUT OF THE GARDEN, AND THAT RAISED YOU WHEN YOU WERE FALLEN. The same WORD.

48.       In the beginning was the WORD, the WORD was with God, the WORD was God. The WORD later became flesh and lived here among us. Yes lived, not just spontaneous or temporary appearance, He abode and remained with us.

49.       2YES, THE WORD THAT WILL AGAIN SAVE YOU WHEN THE FIVE AND A HALF DAYS ARE FULFILLED." Halleluiah! So, there is a set time that must be fulfilled.

50.       He says five days and half. Five days and half is the sixth day, is it not? In fact it is ending of the sixth day.

51.        the sixth day has already gone half. That is the time allotted to Adam before his redemption and restoration to Paradise.

52.       3But when Adam heard these words from god, and of the great five and a half days, he did not understand the meaning of them.

53.       4For Adam was thinking there would be only five and a half days for him until the end of the world.

54.       Adam was thinking there would be only five and a half literal days of twenty-four hours as we know it for him until the end of the world.

55.       5And Adam cried, and prayed to God to explain it to him. 6THEN GOD IN HIS MERCY FOR ADAM WHO WAS MADE AFTER HIS OWN IMAGE AND LIKENESS, EXPLAINED TO HIM, THAT THESE WERE 5,000 AND 500 YEARS; AND HOW ONE WOULD THEN COME AND SAVE HIM AND HIS DESCENDANTS.

56.       THEN GOD EXPLAINED TO HIM, THAT THESE WERE 5,000 AND 500 YEARS; FIVE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED YEARS AND HOW ONE WOULD THEN COME AND SAVE HIM AND HIS DESCENDANTS.

57.        And how ONE, ONE, O-N-E, ONE, not two, not three but ONE would then come and save him and his descendants.

58.       Whether they be Jews, Gentiles, Christian, Moslem, American, African, Asians, Negros, Caucasians, Red, Black, White, European or anything you call yourself as far as you are ADAM’s descendant.

59.       Hear it very well that it is after these 5,500 years that ONE will come to save Adam and his descendants.

60.       Please note, it cannot be any time before 5,500 years but it can be any time AFTER. That is when to expect HIM that ONE, the MAN, THE WORD, to come and save Adam and his descendants.

61.       An Author Joseph B. Lumpkin in his own book noted that the year 1740 A.D. equates to the Hebrew year 5500. He said that It was around this time the Great Revival or the Great Awakening began in the United States of America like wake up call.

62.       In the same vein, it was reported that a similar timeline was revealed by Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) thus: THE LIFE OF THIS COMMUNITY WILL EXCEED 1000 YEARS, YET BE LIMITED TO 1500 YEARS... (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashratal-sa'ah, p. 299)

63.       THE LIFE OF MY COMMUNITY WILL NOT EXCEED 1500 YEARS. (As-Suyuti, Al-Kashf 'an Mujawazat Hazihi al-Ummah al-Alf; As-Suyuti, Al-Hawi Lil-Fatawi, 2/248; Tafsir Ruh al-Bayan. Burusawi 4/262; Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Kitab al-`Ilal, p. 89)

64.       Since the Prophet was born in 570 AD and died in AD 632 AD we have a range of 1570 AD – 2070 AD. This perfectly agrees with the prophecy of Adam about 5,500 years.

65.       You can now see that Adam and his descendants have exhausted the time allotted for them. The only thing remaining is for that Great ONE to open the gate of paradise and let the righteous in. In other words, HE IS ALREADY ON EARTH AS HE PROMISED THAT HE, THE WORD, WILL COME TO DO IT.

IT IS THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST IN YOU THAT TRANSFORMS THE MESSAGE INTO A QUICKENING POWER, A SUSTAINING POWER BECAUSE WITHOUT THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST, NOTHING SUSTAINS A CHILD OF GOD. THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST IS THE IDENTITY OF EVERY SEED OF GOD BUT WHEN THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST IS NOT FOUND IN YOU, YOU ARE AN EMPTY BARREL.

EVERY TRUE SEED OF GOD POSSESSES THE SPIRIT OF GOD PREACHED ON

I WILL SEND MY WORD AND SAVE THEE AND THY SEED

 

This subject is the Spirit of Prophecy. The prophets enquired and searched diligently to understand the manner of time the Spirit of CHRIST (not Jesus) which was in them was signifying.

2.           First Peter chapter 1:10-12 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 11searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 

3.           12Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

4.           You see, it is unto you and I that they did minister the things which we now report. Even those Apostles did not understand everything then as they are made clear to us today. That is why further in verse 13 Peter says,

5.           Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

6.           And hope to the end. Everything still pointing to the end, FOR THE GRACE THAT IS TO BE BROUGHT UNTO YOU AT THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST.

7.           The Grace that is to be brought, future event at the revelation of Jesus Christ at the end. So it was still hidden to them.

8.           But we are at the end now that is why we are hearing what we are hearing today. What a privilege!

9.           Jesus said, 16But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

10.        17For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them Matthew 13:16-17.

11.       This same message Adam passed on to his son Seth when Adam was about to die and commanded him to pass it on to his sons and sons’ sons according to Second Book of Adam and Eve Chapter 8:1-2; 8-9; 14-20.

12.       1WHEN our father Adam saw that his end was near, he called his son Seth, who came to him in the Cave of Treasures, and he said unto him: -

13.       2"O Seth, my son bring me thy children and thy children's children, that I may shed my blessing on them ere I die."

14.       8BUT KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS THAT I GIVE THEE THIS DAY; THEN GIVE THE SAME TO THY SON ENOS; AND LET ENOS GIVE IT TO HIS SON CAINAN; AND CAINAN TO HIS SON MAHALALEEL; SO THAT THIS COMMANDMENT ABIDE FIRM AMONG ALL YOUR CHILDREN.

15.       9"0 Seth, my son, the moment I am dead take ye my body and wind it up with myrrh, aloes, and cassia, and leave me here in this Cave of Treasures in which are all these tokens which God gave us from the garden.

16.       14"But now, 0 Seth, my son, place thyself at the head of thy people; tend them and watch over them in the fear of God; and lead them in the good way.

17.        Command them to fast unto God; and make them understand they ought not to hearken to Satan, lest he destroy them.

18.       15"Then, again, sever thy children and thy children's children from Cain's children; do not let them ever mix with those, nor come near them either in their words or in their deeds."

19.        16Then Adam let his blessing descend upon Seth, and upon his children, and upon all his children's children.

20.       17He then turned to his son Seth, and to Eve his wife, and ,said to them, "Preserve this gold, this incense, and this myrrh, that God has given us for a sign; for in days that are coming, a flood will overwhelm the whole creation.

21.       But those who shall go into the ark shall take with them the gold, the incense, and the myrrh, together with my body; and will lay the gold, the incense, and the myrrh, with my body in the midst of the earth.

22.       18"Then, after a long time, the city in which the gold, the incense, and the myrrh are found with my body, shall be plundered.

23.        But when it is spoiled, the gold, the incense, and the myrrh shall be taken care of with the spoil that is kept; and naught of them shall perish, UNTIL THE WORD OF GOD, MADE MAN SHALL COME;

24.       when kings shall take them, and shall offer to Him, gold in token of His being King; incense, in token of His being God of heaven and earth; and myrrh, in token of His passion.

25.       19"Gold also, as a token of His overcoming Satan, and all our foes; incense as a token that He will rise from the dead, and be exalted above things in heaven and things in the earth; and myrrh, in token that He will drink bitter gall; and feel the pains of hell from Satan.

26.       20"And now, O Seth, my son, behold I have revealed unto thee hidden mysteries, which God had revealed unto me. Keep my commandment, for thyself, and for thy people."

27.       In Chapter 10 of the same Book after the death of Adam God sent His word to Seth confirming the instruction Adam gave to him and also the promise.

28.       3And when they had ended their offering, the Word of God came to Seth, the eldest among them, saying unto him, "O Seth, Seth, Seth, three times.

29.       AS I WAS WITH THY FATHER, SO ALSO SHALL I BE WITH THEE, UNTIL THE FULFILMENT OF THE PROMISE I MADE HIM - THY FATHER SAYING, I WILL SEND MY WORD AND SAVE THEE AND THY SEED.

30.       Is it then a wonder why all the Patriarchs admonished their children in like manner with much emphasis on the subject Promise as they received from our father Adam.

31.       Let us consider some of them as contained in the Testament of the Patriarchs.

32.       Speaking of His appearance Reuben in Chapter 1 says, 33For to Levi the lord gave the sovereignty and to Judah and to me also with them, and to Dan and  Joseph, that we should be for rulers.

33.       Therefore I command you to hearken to Levi, because he shall know the law of the Lord, and shall give ordinances for judgement and shall sacrifice for all Israel UNTIL THE COMPLETION OF THE TIMES OF CHRIST, AS THE ANOINTED HIGH PRIEST, WHOM THE LORD HAS DECLARED,

34.       34I adjure you by the God of heaven to work truth each one with his neighbour; and draw ye near to Levi in humbleness of heart, that you may receive a blessing from his mouth.

35.       35For he shall bless Israel; and especially Judah, because him has the Lord chosen to rule over all the peoples. AND WORSHIP WE HIS SEED, because he shall die for us in wars visible and invisible, and will be among you an everlasting king.

36.       THAT HIS SEED TO BE WORSHIPPED CANNOT BE ANY PERSON OTHER THAN ALMIGHTY GOD HIMSELF FOR HIM ALONE SHALL YOU WORSHIP.

37.       Accordingly, Levi in Chapter 3 says, 13AND A BLESSING SHALL BE GIVEN TO YOU, AND TO ALL THY SEED, UNTIL THE LORD SHALL VISIT ALL THE HEATHEN IN THE TENDER MERCIES OF HIS SON EVEN FOREVER.

38.       NEVERTHELESS, YOUR SONS SHALL LAY HANDS UPON HIM TO CRUCIFY HIM; AND THEREFORE HAVE COUNSEL AND UNDERSTANDING BEEN GIVEN TO YOU, THAT YOU MIGHT INSTRUCT YOUR SONS CONCERNING HIM, because he that blesses Him shall be blessed, but they that curse Him shall perish.

39.       14AND THE ANGEL OPENED TO ME THE GATES OF HEAVEN, AND I SAW THE HOLY TEMPLE, AND THE MOST HIGH UPON A THRONE OF GLORY.

40.       15AND HE SAID TO ME LEVI, I HAVE GIVEN YOU THE BLESSINGS OF THE PRIESTHOOD UNTIL THAT I SHALL COME AND SOJOURN IN THE MIDST OF ISRAEL. …

41.        58And now I have learned in the book of Enoch that for seventy weeks will you go astray, and will profane the priesthood, and pollute the sacrifices, and corrupt the law, and set at nought the words of the prophets.

42.       59In perverseness you will persecute righteous men, and hate the godly; the words of the faithful you will abhor,

43.       AND THE MAN WHO RENEWS THE LAW IN THE POWER OF THE MOST HIGH, WILL YOU CALL A DECEIVER; AND AT LAST AS YOU SUPPOSE, YOU WILL SLAY HIM, NOT UNDERSTANDING HIS RESURRECTION, WICKEDLY TAKING UPON YOUR OWN HEADS THE INNOCENT BLOOD.

44.        60Because of Him shall your holy places be desolate, polluted even to the ground, and you shall have no place that is clean;

45.       but you shall be among the Gentiles a curse and a dispersion until He shall again  look upon you (visit you again) and in pity shall take you to Himself through faith and water. (no more LAW).

46.       They will not understand his resurrection like Luke and Cleopas that asked the RESSURECTED BODY, “Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?” 

47.       19And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: 

48.       20and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. 

49.       21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and besides all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. 

50.       They trusted he was the person to redeem them; they trusted but now they feel disappointed. You that are feeling disappointed, was that your expected promised? Could it be your wishful thinking is deceiving and disappointing you?

51.       If it is not according to scripture; if it is not according to promise; it is not according to prophecy; if it is not according to Time then forget about it. Who then disappointed the other?

52.       25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 26ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?

53.        27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

54.       O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken – selective believers believing only those that appeal to them.

55.       One can be a professor in academics, professor in all human endeavours but concerning what the prophets have spoken and are still speaking, he is a fool and slow of heart.

56.       They did not understand His resurrection; that Joseph as a type of Christ was first rejected by his brethren, condemned to death (a type of Jesus’ death); put in the pit signifying His burial; was later brought out signifying His resurrection; sold into the hands of the gentiles;

57.       there he became a gentile at least by marriage. He took a gentile wife and became father of the gentiles from where he also delivered his brethren.

58.       25Then Jesus said to them, “You are such foolish, foolish people! You find it so hard to believe all that the prophets wrote in the Scriptures! 26Wasn’t it clearly predicted by the prophets that the Messiah would have to suffer all these things before entering his time of glory?” Luke 24:25-26 LB.

59.       Benjamin in Chapter 12 of Testament of the Patriarchs says: 29Therefore, my children, know that I am dying. work therefore, truth and righteousness each one with his neighbour, and judgement unto faithful doing, and keep the law of the Lord and his commandments; for these things do I teach you instead of all inheritance.

60.       30YOU SHOULD ALSO THEREFORE, GIVE THEM TO YOUR CHILDREN FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION; FOR SO DID BOTH ABRAHAM, AND ISAAC, AND JACOB.

61.       ALL THESE THINGS THEY GAVE US FOR AN INHERITANCE, SAYING, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, UNTIL THE LORD SHALL REVEAL HIS SALVATION TO ALL NATIONS (GENTILES).

62.        31THEN SHALL YOU SEE ENOCH, NOAH, AND SHEM, AND ABRAHAM, AND ISAAC, AND JACOB, ARISING ON THE RIGHT HAND IN GLADNESS.

63.       THEN SHALL WE ALSO ARISE, EACH ONE OVER OUR TRIBE, WORSHIPPING THE KING OF HEAVEN, WHO APPEARED UPON EARTH IN THE FORM OF A MAN OF HUMILITY.

64.        32AND AS MANY AS BELIEVED ON HIM ON THE EARTH SHALL REJOICE WITH HIM. AND THEN SHALL ALL MEN ARISE, SOME UNTO GLORY AND SOME UNTO SHAME.

65.       33AND THE LORD SHALL JUDGE ISRAEL FIRST, EVEN FOR THE WRONG THEY DID UNTO HIM; FOR WHEN HE APPEARED AS A DELIVERER, GOD IN THE FLESH, THEY BELIEVED HIM NOT.

66.       AND THEN SHALL HE JUDGE ALL THE GENTILES, AS MANY AS BELIEVED HIM NOT WHEN HE APPEARED ON EARTH.

67.       34AND HE SHALL REPROVE ISRAEL AMONG (THROUGH) THE CHOSEN ONES OF THE GENTILES, EVEN AS HE REPROVED ESAU AMONG THE MIDIANITES, WHO DECEIVED THEIR BRETHREN, SO THAT THEY FELL INTO FORNICATION, AND IDOLATRY; AND THEY WERE ALIENATED FROM GOD, AND BECAME AS THEY THAT WERE NO CHILDREN IN THE PORTION OF THEM THAT FEAR THE LORD.

68.        35And if you walk in holiness in the presence of the Lord, you shall dwell in hope again, and all Israel shall be gathered unto the Lord.

69.       36And I shall no longer be called a ravening wolf on account of your ravages, but a worker of the Lord, distributing food to them that work what is good.

70.       AND ONE SHALL RISE UP FROM MY SEED IN LATTER TIMES  BELOVED OF THE LORD, HEARING UPON THE EARTH HIS VOICE, ENLIGHTENING WITH NEW KNOWLEDGE ALL THE GENTILES, BURSTING IN UPON ISRAEL FOR SALVATION AND TEARING IT AWAY FROM IT LIKE A WOLF, AND GIVING TO THE SYNAGOGUE OF THE GENTILES.

71.       37AND UNTIL THE CONSUMMATION OF THE AGES SHALL HE BE IN THE SYNAGOGUES OF THE GENTILES, AND AMONG THEIR RULERS, AS A STRAIN OF MUSIC IN THE MOUTH OF ALL; AND HE SHALL BE INSCRIBED IN THE HOLY BOOKS, BOTH HIS WORK AND HIS WORD, AND HE SHALL BE A CHOSEN ONE OF GOD FOR EVER; AND BECAUSE OF HIM MY FATHER JACOB INSTRUCTED ME, SAYING, HE SHALL FILL UP THAT WHICH LACKS OF YOUR TRIBE. YOU SEE HE WILL REMAIN IN THE SYNAGOGUE OF THE GENTILES UNTIL THE CONSUMATION OF ALL THINGS.

72.       YOU MUST BELIEVE HIM AND WORSHIP HIM WHEN HE IS HERE IN THE FLESH AS A HUMAN BEING ON EARTH IN THE GENTILE OR FACE HIS JUDGEMENT.


 

I am not sent to everybody. I am sent to the lost sheep of Israel. I am not sent to everybody. I am not a worldwide Minister. I told you that. I came in search of My own. Anywhere I see that My own, I will make noise, he will embrace Me. My sheep heareth My Voice. They follow Me. The only thing that will attract them is My Voice. Once I speak, they will follow Me.

THE MIGHTY ONE OF ISRAEL SHALL APPEAR  

Simeon confirms this in Chapter 2 as follows: 21then shall all the earth rest from trouble and all the world under heaven from war.

2.           Then shall Shem be glorified because the the Lord, THE MIGHTY ONE OF ISRAEL SHALL APPEAR UPON THE EARTH AS MAN AND SAVED BY HIM ADAM.

3.           22THEN SHALL ALL THE SPIRITS OF DECEIT BE GIVEN TO BE TRAMPLED UNDER FOOT, AND MEN SHALL RULE OVER THE WICKED THEN WILL I ARISE IN JOY, AND WILL BLESS THE MOST HIGH BECAUSE OF HIS MARVELLOUS WORKS, BECAUSE GOD HATH TAKEN A BODY AND EATEN WITH MEN AND SAVED MEN.

4.            23and now my children obey Levi and in Judah shall you be redeemed: and be not lifted up against these two tribes, for from them shall arise to you the salvation of God.

5.           FOR THE LORD SHALL RAISE UP FROM LEVI AS IT WERE A PRIEST, AND FROM JUDAH AS IT WERE A KING, GOD AND MAN.

6.           Judah in Chapter 4 also says, 74AND AFTER THESE THINGS SHALL A STAR ARISE TO YOU FROM JACOB IN PEACE, AND A MAN SHALL ARISE FROM MY SEED, LIKE THE SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, WALKING WITH THE SONS OF MEN IN MEEKNESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND NO SIN SHALL BE FOUND IN HIM.

7.           A MAN SHALL ARISE FROM MY SEED, LIKE THE SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, WALKING WITH THE SONS OF MEN IN MEEKNESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND NO SIN SHALL BE FOUND IN HIM.

8.           75and the heavens shall be open above him, To shed forth the blessing of the spirit, from the Holy Father; And He shall shed forth a spirit of grace upon you; And you shall be unto Him sons in truth, And you shall walk in His commandments, the first and the last

9.           76THIS IS THE BRANCH OF GOD MOST HIGH, AND THIS IS THE WELL-SPRING UNTO LIFE FOR ALL FLESH. THEN SHALL THE SCEPTRE OF MY KINGDOM SHINE FORTH AND FROM YOUR ROOT SHALL ARISE A STEM AND IT SHALL ARISE A ROD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS TO THE GENTILES, TO JUDGE AND TO SAVE ALL THAT CALL UPON THE LORD.

10.       Zebulun in Chapter 9 verse 8 says, AND HE SHALL BRING BACK ALL THE NATIONS TO ZEAL FOR HIM, AND YOU SHALL SEE GOD IN THE FASHION OF A MAN WHOM THE LORD SHALL CHOOSE, JERUSALEM IS HIS NAME.

11.       and again with the wickedness of your words will you provoke Him to anger, and you shall be cast away, even unto the time of consummation.

12.        Levi that was given the priesthood among his brethren in Chapter 3 throws more light on what mission is like.

13.       70He shall give the majesty of the Lord to His sons in truth for evermore; And there shall none succeed him for all generations, even forever And in the priesthood shall all sin come to an end, and the lawless shall rest from evil, and the just shall rest in Him.

14.        71AND HE SHALL OPEN THE GATES OF PARADISE AND SHALL REMOVE THE THREATENING SWORD AGAINST ADAM. AND HE SHALL GIVE TO HIS SAINTS TO EAT FROM THE TREE OF LIFE, AND THE SPIRIT OF HOLINESS SHALL BE ON THEM.

15.        He is the One that has the Keys of Heaven and Hell – a human being, one of Adam’s descendants, one of the sons of men – THE SON OF MAN

16.        72And Beliar shall be bound by him, And he shall give power to His children to tread upon the evil spirits. And the Lord shall rejoice in His children, And be well pleased in His beloved for ever.

17.       Then shall Abraham and Isaac and Jacob be joyful, And I will be glad, And all the saints shall put on gladness.

18.       In addition Judah in Chapter 4 says, 70And the Lord shall bring upon them divisions one against another. And there shall be continual wars in Israel; And among men of other race shall my kingdom be brought to an end, UNTIL THE SALVATION OF ISRAEL SHALL COME, UNTIL THE APPEARING OF THE GOD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, THAT JACOB AND ALL THE GENTILES MAY REST IN PEACE.

19.       76this is the Branch of God Most High, and this is the Well-spring unto life for ALL flesh. Then shall the sceptre of my kingdom shine forth and from your root shall arise a stem and it shall arise a rod of righteousness to the Gentiles, TO JUDGE AND TO SAVE ALL THAT CALL UPON THE LORD

20.       Where and how will all these things take place? 29And they said to me: Levi, your SEED shall be divided into three branches (offices), for a SIGN of the glory of the Lord who is to come.

21.       And first shall be that has been faithful; no portion shall be greater than his.  Moses was a Levite and according to Hebrews, he was faithful in all his house. Moses’ portion or office supersedes that of a priest. Aaron the High Priest was his prophet as we earlier mentioned.

22.       30The second shall be in the priesthood. The second the normal Levitical Priesthood in the order of Aaron. The third, a new Name shall be called over Him, because He shall arise as King from Judah, and shall establish a new PRIESTHOOD, AFTER THE FASHION OF THE GENTILES to all the Gentiles.

23.        The third Priesthood shall arise as King from Judah to establish a new NAME. Note, it shall arise, that is take off as King from Judah but along the line it will establish a NEW PRIESTHOOD AFTER THE FASHION OF THE GENTILES TO ALL GENTILES.

24.        IT AROSE AS A SHOOT OF JESSE WHICH WAS CUT OFF. THEN IT ESTABLISHED AN INDEPENDENT PRIESTHOOD WHICH SPROUTED FROM THE ROOT.

25.       And His appearing shall be unutterable, as of an exalted prophet of the seed of Abraham our Father.

26.       AND HIS APPEARING SHALL BE UNUTTERABLE, AS OF AN EXALTED PROPHET OF THE SEED OF ABRAHAM OUR FATHER, NO LONGER JACOB (ISRAEL) BUT JACOB’S ROOT ABRAHAM.

27.       HE WILL BE UNUTTERABLE BECAUSE HE WILL BE BOTH KING AND PRIEST IN ONE MAN. THIS MEANS HE WILL DO WHATEVER PLEASES HIM AND NO BEING CAN QUERY HIM FOR HE IS IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH AT THE SAME TIME.

28.       In the Testament of the patriarchs Chapter 4:65-66 Judah says, 65And now my children, love Levi, that you may abide, and exalt not yourselves against him, lest you be utterly destroyed.

29.       For to me the Lord gave the Kingdom, and to him the priesthood, and He set the kingdom beneath the priesthood.

30.       66To me He gave the things upon the earth; to him the things in the heavens. As the heaven is higher than the earth, so is the priesthood of God higher than the kingdom upon the earth.

31.        Can you see it? The kingly office is on earth, the priestly office is in heaven? So, HE, THE MAN that occupies both offices is operating from both heaven and earth at the same time.

32.       In Chapter 7 Dan speaks thus, 27And it shall be in the time of the iniquity of Israel, that the Lord will depart from them, and will go after HIM that does His will for unto none of the angels shall it be like unto HIM.

33.       The LORD shall depart from Israel and go after HIM, the MAN that does His will.

34.        If this MAN is not in Israel, where is HE? The answer is Gentile. FOR UNTO NONE OF THE ANGELS SHALL IT BE LIKE UNTO HIM, THE MAN. Even Angels will stand in awe of the MAN.

35.       28and His Name shall be in every place of Israel and among the gentiles- Saviour. The NAME of this MAN SHALL BE IN EVERY PLACE OF BOTH ISRAEL AND GENTILE – SAVIOUR, MESSIAH, THE LORD’S CHRIST. We are moving gradually.

36.       We will not stop until like Simeon we can confidently by revelation say ‘BEHOLD THE LORD’S CHRIST’  Keep therefore my children from every evil work and cast away wrath and all lying and love truth and long-suffering and the things which you have heard from your father, impart also to your children that the Father of the Gentiles may receive you: for He is True and Long-suffering, meek and lowly, and teaches by His works the Law of God.

37.        That who may receive them (Israelites)? THE FATHER OF THE GENTILES. This Father of the gentiles TEACHES BY HIS WORKS THE LAW OF GOD. WE ARE A BLESSED GENERATION.

38.       Can any Jew today refute this? They cannot claim they knew God more than their Patriarchs that taught them especially when the Patriarchs forewarned them about the way they will abandon God and follow after wickedness. Let us see what Levi says in Chapter 3:59-60. 59in perverseness you will persecute righteous men and hate the godly;

39.       the words of the faithful you will abhor, and the man who renews the law in the power of the Most High will you call a deceiver; and at last as you suppose you will slay Him,

40.        Did they not slay the MAN Jesus supposing Him to be a deceiver? It was the seed of Levi, the High Priest Caiaphas and his fellow priests of the Levitical order that killed Him even when they were forewarned that He will come to renew the Law in the Power of the Most High.

41.        They slew Him. not understanding His resurrection, wickedly taking upon your heads the innocent blood they did not understand His resurrection.

42.       They did not know that by cutting Him off the shoot or stem as an offspring of Jesse it is the justification for Him to take to another route to relocate.

43.       When they thought they had succeeded they did not know that one of the roots will bud, sprout, grow to maturity and bear many fruits. God through Moses warned them about this in Deuteronomy Chapter 32:20-21 20He said, ‘I will abandon them; See what happens to them then! For they are a stubborn, faithless generation.

44.       21They have made me very jealous of their idols, Which are not gods at all. Now I, in turn, will make them jealous By giving my affections To the foolish Gentile nations of the world. SO, IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT GOD HAS GIVEN HIS AFFECTION TO THE FOOLISH GENTILE NATIONS OF THE WORLD.

45.       60because of Him shall your Holy places be desolate, polluted even to the ground, and you shall have no place that is clean; but you shall be among the Gentiles a curse and a dispersion,

46.        From the time Israel became desolate and polluted and were dispersed among the gentiles as a cursed people,; until He shall again look upon you and in pity shall take you to Himself through faith and water.

47.       He shall again look upon them and in pity take them to Himself like Joseph did to his brethren, through faith and grace no longer law, the impossible system that blinded them.

48.       Let us read Daniel 9:25-26. 25Now listen! It will be 49 years plus 434 years from the time the command is given to rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One comes!

49.       Jerusalem’s streets and walls will be rebuilt despite the perilous times. 26“After this period of 434 years, THE ANOINTED ONE WILL BE KILLED, HIS KINGDOM STILL UNREALIZED . . .

50.       and a king will arise whose armies will destroy the city and the Temple. They will be overwhelmed as with a flood, and war and its miseries are decreed from that time to the very end.

51.       Daniel was told about the coming of this Anointed One, Jesus Christ as confirmed by Simeon. However, THE ANOINTED ONE WOULD BE KILLED WHILE HIS KINGDOM WAS STILL UNREALIZED.

52.       THUS, HE DIED AS A PRINCE SINCE THE KINGDOM WAS NOT YET REALIZED. THERE CANNOT BE A KING WITHOUT A KINGDOM. AS THE KINGDOM WAS IN THE MAKING, THE KING WAS ALSO IN THE MAKING.

53.        We have seen the end of the life of Jesus as prophesied. We also know the king (Emperor Nero) that arose whose armies destroyed the city of Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD.

54.       Thus, the Holy place became desolate, polluted to the ground and the people dispersed among the gentiles as accursed.

55.        Daniel says that the miseries are decreed for them thus from that time until the very end.

56.       It is only in 1948 that God started gathering them again out of the gentile nations where He dispersed them that He may show pity to them through Faith which is Grace and no more LAW.

57.        Now God has started gathering them, restoring them after dispersing and punishing them let us see what to expect.

58.       From that time the restoration started what do we expect? Let us hear from Levi again Chapter 3:66-68

59.       66And after their punishment shall have come from the Lord, Then will the Lord raise up to the priesthood a new priest to whom All the words of the Lord shall be revealed;

 


 

The Lord your God is with you, the mighty warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you.  In His love, He will no longer rebuke you. What? In His love, He will no longer rebuke you. Yes! But will rejoice over you with singing. I will remove from you all who mourn over the loss of your appointed festival. NIV Living Bible. For the Lord your God has arrived to live among you. What? For the Lord your God has arrived to live among you. The lord your god has finally arrive to do what? To live among you. if you believe it, say amen.

THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS ASSURED TO LIVE AMONG YOU

 

After their punishment shall have come from the Lord, a new priest shall be raised to the priesthood by God because the priesthood shall fail.

2.           So, after their dispersion and punishment, immediately restoration starts, expect a NEW PRIEST TO COME; a new Priest to WHOM ALL THE WORDS OF THE LORD SHALL BE REVEALED;

3.           Remember what Jesus said in John Chapter 16: 12-13 “12I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

4.           13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come”

5.           ALL THE WORDS OF THE LORD SHALL BE REVEALED FROM ADAM TILL DATE AND BEYOND. A NEW PRIEST TO WHOM ALL THE WORDS OF THE LORD SHALL BE REVEALED;

6.           WE ARE COMING CLOSER TO SOMETHING; REMEMBER HE TOLD ADAM THAT AFTER THE APPOINTED TIME IS FULFILLED, AFTER FIVE AND HALF DAYS, AFTER FIVE THOUSAND, FIVE HUNDRED YEARS I WILL COME TO SAVE YOU AND YOUR DESCENDANTS,

7.           THE WORD YOU TRANSGRESSED WILL COME. IN CONFIRMATION PROPHET MUHAMMED (PBUP) SAID THE LIFE OF THIS COMMUNITY WILL EXCEED 1000 YEARS YET IT WILL BE LIMITED TO 1500 YEARS; THE LIFE OF MY COMMUNITY WILL NOT EXCEED 1500 YEARS.

8.           IT MUST BE ACCORDING TO PROPHECY; IT MUST BE ACCORDING TO TIME. AMEN. This is the reason why the evil spirit on identifying HIM, THE WORD, IN THE DAYS OF JESUS ASKED HIM, HAVE YOU COME TO DESTROY US BEFORE THE APPOINTED TIME?

9.           28When he arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way. 

10.       29 “What do you want with us, Son of God?” they shouted. “Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?”

11.       Matthew 8:28-30 NIV.33 And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, 34 saying, Let us alone;

12.       what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God. 

13.       35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. Luke 4:33-35 KJV.

14.       They knew it was not yet time, Jesus knew it was not the time but He came as a Messenger of the Covenant. They knew there is an appointed time which was not yet fulfilled, and God cannot alter it.

15.       They were all there in Eden when the Almighty declared it. So, when they saw Him they shouted, we know you, the Holy One of God, have You come to destroy us before the time? Amen.

16.       Let us go ahead. And after their punishment shall have come from the Lord, the priesthood shall fail Then will the Lord raise up to the priesthood a new priest to whom All the Words of the Lord shall be revealed.

17.       And he shall execute a judgement in truth upon the earth in the fullness of days.

18.        67And his star shall arise in heaven as a king shedding forth the light of knowledge in the sunshine of day, And he shall be magnified in the world until His ascension.

19.       HE SHALL BE MAGNIFIED IN THE WORLD UNTIL HIS ASCENSION; HE IS NOT HERE TO DIE AGAIN; HE IS THE RESURRECTED BODY WAITING FOR THE APPOINTED TIME TO USHER IN ADAM AND HIS DESCENDANTS TO HIS GLORY.

20.       When Jesus said Father glorify Your Name, the Voice said I have glorified it and I will glorify it again.

21.       He shall shine forth as the sun in the earth; And shall drive away all darkness from the world under heaven, And there shall be peace in all the earth.

22.       68The heavens shall rejoice in his days, And the earth shall be glad, BOTH THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH SHALL REJOICE IN HIS DAYS FOR HE HAS COME TO STAY.

23.        And the clouds shall be joyful, And the knowledge of the Lord shall be poured forth upon the earth, as the water of seas; And the angels of the glory of the presence of the Lord shall be glad in him.

24.       HE, IT IS THAT WILL EXECUTE JUDGEMENT AND TRUTH – THE NEW PRIEST; BOTH KING AND PRIEST IN ONE. Did God not say it in Isaiah chapter 43 verse 19 that He will do a New thing? “

25.       For I’m going to do a brand-new thing. See, I have already begun! Don’t you see it? I will make a road through the wilderness of the world for my people to go home, and create rivers for them in the desert!”

26.       In Chapter 62 verse1 to 2 He says again, “For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that  burneth.

27.        And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name,”

28.       AND THE GENTILES SHALL SEE THY RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL KINGS THY GLORY: AND THOU SHALT BE CALLED BY A NEW NAME WHICH THE MOUTH OF THE LORD SHALL NAME. A NEW NAME WHICH THE MOUTH OF THE LORD SHALL NAME.

29.        I believe that before we get to the end of this message, we will identify that New Name which the mouth of the Lord named by Himself. Then and only then can we confidently say, ‘BEHOLD THE LORD’S CHRIST with all certainty.

30.       Realizing this Kingdom where Peace and Righteousness shall reign is the crux of the whole matter even as we have seen in the Testament of the Patriarchs.

31.       The Kingdom of Heaven which is the promised paradise of God is what all the Patriarchs and dead saints of God are waiting for. At the appointed time they will resurrect and with those that remain alive shall enter the rest of God.

32.       Let us go further Luke Chapter 20:9-16 9Then began He to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time. 

33.       10And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty. 

34.       11And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty. 

35.       12And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out. 

36.       13Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him. 

37.       14But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours. 

38.       15So they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them? 

39.       16He shall come and destroy these husbandmen and shall give the vineyard to others.

40.       He asked, “what therefore shall the Lord of the vineyard do?” HE SHALL COME HIMSELF. Watch, all others came as messengers including the Son but the LORD, the FATHER (FATHER OF THE GENTILES) is to come, not as a messenger but as the Executor to execute judgement.

41.       He is not answerable to anyone; He is not accountable to anybody. The Father, the FATHER OF THE GENTILES will be coming as a Gentile from Gentile nation. He is the One even the Jews and all the ends of the world must look up to for their salvation.

42.       That is when the advocate becomes the Judge, He does not need any evidence to execute His judgement. He is the One to be expected before the consummation of all things.

43.       The Book of Malachi Chapter 4:5 says, 5Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: 

44.       6and he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I COME AND SMITE THE EARTH WITH A CURSE. (KJV)

45.       5“See, I will send you another prophet like Elijah[a] before the coming of the great and dreadful judgment day of God. 

46.       6His preaching will bring fathers and children together again, to be of one mind and heart, for they will know that if they do not repent, I WILL COME AND UTTERLY DESTROY THEIR LAND.” (LB).

47.       THE LORD SHALL COME HIMSELF NO LONGER MERELY AS A MESSENGER OF THE COVENANT AS WE READ IN MALACHI 3:1 BUT AS THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF TO EXECUTE JUDGEMENT AFTER WHICH HE WILL USHER IN A REIGN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR HE IS THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOSNESS. HE WILL REDEEM HIS OWN.

48.       Thus, successfully actualizing the Kingdom. He says, For the day of vengeance was in My heart, and the year of My redemption had come.

49.       This is why Paul in Hebrews Chapter 9:28 says that, Even so it is that Christ, having been offered to take upon Himself and bear as a burden the sins of many once and once for all,

50.        will appear a second time, not to carry any burden of sin nor to deal with sin, but to bring to full salvation those who are [eagerly, constantly, and patiently] waiting for and expecting Him. (AMP).

51.       The Lord Jesus spoke concerning Him. He pointed everybody to the day when He will appear. Let us look at some other scriptures.

52.       Remember John 1:1 says “in the beginning was the WORD, the WORD was with God the WORD was God.

53.       This WORD has been going forth to generations and dispensations in PARTS depending on their need, but the scripture says that the FULL WORD will come after five and half days which is 5000 and 500 years: after, not before.

54.       Thus, anybody who expected the FULL WORD earlier or alluding that the FULL WORD appeared earlier than this has already missed IT.

55.       After five and half days: is it not sixth day? it is not just sixth day but ending of the sixth day.

56.        YOU SEE WHY HE APPEARED AS A PRINCE FIRST TO HERALD, FORERUN HIS EXECUTIVE APPEARANCE. YES, HE CAME IN JESUS AS THE PRINCE OF PEACE THAT IS THE SON, THE MESSENGER OF THE COVENANT.

57.       BUT TODAY HE HAS COME AS THE KING OF SALEM IN HIS FULLNESS. HE IS NOT A MESSENGER HE IS THE ANCIENT OF DAYS HIDING IN THE BODY OF FLESH TO REDEEM HIS OWN.

58.        HE sent the Son to herald the coming of the Kingdom they killed Him saying this is the Prince the heir let us deal with Him. Then He said I SHALL COME MYSELF TO EXECUTE JUDGEMENT.

59.       Zeph 3:17-18, 17-18For the Lord your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty Savior.

60.       He will give you victory. He will rejoice over you with great gladness; he will love you and not accuse you.” Is that a joyous choir I hear? No, it is the Lord himself exulting over you in happy song.

61.        FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS ARRIVED TO LIVE AMONG YOU. He has arrived long, long time ago living among men. Of course, He must be a man to live among men.

62.        Based on our calendar it is about 6000 years from the time Adam had the conversation with Him, that is, without taking into consideration the number of years Adam had spent in the Garden before he transgressed.

63.        Remember He the LORD promised Adam that Adam must complete the time allotted for his punishment which would span a period of five and a half days which is 5500 years after which, yes after which he will be redeemed.

64.       AFTER five and half days, I the LORD will come by MYSELF to bring you back to Glory. By then HE the LORD would have taken care of their transgression which He did in the days of Jesus.

65.       Remember the King, Father sent His servants first, then His Son. Hebrews chapter 1:1-2 1Long ago God spoke in many different ways to our fathers through the prophets, in visions, dreams, and even face to face, telling them little by little about his plans. This was to the servants – earthly messengers.

66.        2But now in these days he has spoken to us through his Son to whom he has given everything and through whom he made the world and everything there is.

67.       Then through the Son (a Heavenly Messenger, the Son of God, the Prince of Peace – the Voice says whom shall I send and Who will go for us? Here am I Father send me); that was in the days of Paul.

68.       The Son came with everything but could not release all; they could not bear it; the time was not fulfilled.

69.       THEREFORE, I TELL YOU THAT TODAY HE, THE FATHER IS SPEAKING TO US HIMSELF; BELIEVE IT IF YOU CAN. THE FULL WORD IN THE BODY OF FLESH – THE SON OF MAN. HE SAID WHAT WILL I DO? I WILL COME: THE FATHER OF THE GENTILES.

70.       He came in humility even as a servant, as a lamb to atone for and pay the price of sin, to pave the way for the gentiles being the descendants of Adam also.

71.        He was killed but He promised to come again not to deal with sin but with full salvation for those that are patiently waiting for him and judgement for the others;

72.       That is why Isaiah in Chapter 53:10 LB says that He shall live again. The problem with people is that they claim they believe what God did in time past, what He will do in the future but concerning the present they fail to recognize because of His simplicity.

73.       In the Holy Qur’an, Surah 40:34 it is written, that people to whom Joseph was sent did not believe him but when he [Joseph] died, they said: "Allah will never send another Messenger after him."

74.       And indeed Yusuf (Joseph) did come to you in times gone by, with clear signs, but you ceased not to doubt in that which he did bring to you, till when he died you said:

75.       “No Messenger will Allah send after Him” thus, Allah leaves astray him who is a Musrif (a polytheist, an oppressor, a criminal, a sinner who commits great sins) and a Murtab (one who doubts Allah’s Warning and His Oneness) Surah 40 Ghafir, 34.

76.       When Joseph died, they said no other prophet was coming greater than Joseph. As for believing him when he was alive, they did not.

77.       Afterall they were the same people that planned to kill him and get rid of him. What was their reason? How can this small boy claim to be superior to all of us including our parents for us to bow on his worship?”

78.       When he was no more, they claimed they believed him. They then preferred Joseph to Moses their present leader to the point that they desired to go back to Egypt and die there where their prophet Joseph died.
