JUSTIFY YOUR DIGNIFIED INCLUSION IN ADAM’S RIGHTEOUS DESCENDANTS VOLUME 1


JUSTIFY YOUR DIGNIFIED INCLUSION IN ADAM’S RIGHTEOUS DESCENDANTS volume 1
[The first book of Adam and Eve] ON [Sunday, 20th June 2021 AT THE VOICE OF GOD STUDIO The Bridal Lodge, Nsugbe Anambra State, Nigeria BYApostle Peter  Odoemena THE SON OF MAN THE ALPHA AND OMEGA

We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him. 19We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.

1 John 5:18 – 19 NIV

1MAKE A joyful noise to the Lord, all you lands! 2Serve the Lord with gladness! Come before His presence with singing! 3Know (perceive, recognize, and understand with approval) that the Lord is God! It is He Who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]! We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. 4Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name! 5For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations.

Psalms 100

PROLOGUE

PRAYER

O

ur Heavenly Father here we have come before You this day to praise and to worship You because of Who You are to us, for You are the Alpha and the Omega from Paradise; the beginning and the ending.

2.          The only God that fashioned us and made us what we are. Whom it has pleased before the foundation of the world to make us Your sons and daughters that will be made manifest in this end time to showcase Your Glory and Your Praise, even to reproduce Your nature in this crooked and perverse generation, that the whole world may know and believe that You live forever and ever.

3.          Thank You immensely for using us to fulfill Your goodwill. Otherwise, Your purpose for creating human beings would have been defeated, for all have gone astray; led astray O God by the devil who has used the things of this world to lure their hearts away from You.

4.          But Your Love and Mercy projected towards us. Father, Your amazing grace brought us into Your own perfect programme, among those, O God that will stand for You in this end time.

5.          It is not of our making. It is not because we desired or purposed that it should happen this way. This is Your eternal purpose which You purposed for all of us that are numbered O God as your Elect, chosen for salvation to bear Your Name in this crooked and perverse generation;

6.          A decision You purposed in Yourself Father, before the world began without consulting even the angels.

7.          Father, of a truth, You do everything according to Your own divine will. Thank You for including us in the number. Otherwise, we would not be what we are today. We would not be talking the way we are talking and behaving the way we are behaving.

8.          We would have been numbered among the people that take delight in going to church, but cannot worship You. We would have taken delight O God in joining in the affairs of this present world which is being spear-headed by religion and politics, and which is subject to material acquisition.

9.          Hence, the whole world has gone on one side, but You and Your Elect are on one side.

10.     Father, we thank You for placing us on Your side. Now we are rightly positioned, we know O God, who our ancestors are.

11.     Oh no! Father, we are writing our history while we are alive, for we are numbered among those that have succeeded in tracing their origin from their ancestors right from the first righteous descendants of Adam, down the line until we arrived where we are.

12.     Father, may this truth illuminate our hearts and illuminate our consciences so that not even one numbered among Your Elect will ever attempt to drift away from this revealed truth, which You promised will come to us at the closing hours of the history of mankind.

13.     And now, it has come to pass. And we are the beneficiaries. Father, what a wonderful privilege we are having; what type of peace we are having; a peace we cannot explain. And we know that peace transcends from You, The Author of Peace.

14.     In the world, they are having troubles, but in You O God, we are having peace as promised by the LORD Jesus Christ, He said, “In Me, you have peace. In the world, you will have troubles.”

15.     Father, it is better to be in You than to be in the world, for we have found You to be the only Faithful God, Merciful God, Compassionate God, Righteous God, Holy God, Perfect God, full of Patience and Understanding; full of Tolerance. The Wisest God.

16.     Father, we really thank You, for it pleased You O God to identify with us in human flesh. You have taken O God the flesh of human beings. And there is no other place You have chosen to make Your abode than where we are standing right now, hearing from You, talking to You face to face, mouth to mouth, and ear to ear.

17.     LORD, we really give You the praise, for we never worked for it. So it is with Your chosen ones, Father all over the world. You said You chose us for salvation, and not to obtain Your wrath.

18.     Father, so shall it be, for Your mouth has spoken, and it is irreversible. It has been Your unchanging plan in a dispensation of time, that Your sons and daughters will manifest here on earth.

19.     And we happen to be among those numbered before the world began, documented in the book of life, who will be counted worthy to be Your sons and daughters, manifested in this particular time and age.

20.     LORD, we give You the glory. Words are not enough to express our gratitude. We will ever remain grateful to You for counting us worthy, putting us into this glorious Ministry, even having us as Your own sons and daughters whom You can recognize wherever we come into contact with You.

21.     You know our dwelling places. You call us by our names. And we answer, “Here we are, LORD!” What a wonderful honour bestowed upon human flesh by the Almighty.

22.     LORD, words are not enough to appreciate You. We say, THANK YOU! If we have a word greater than THANK YOU, we will use it.

23.     We surrender ourselves as living sacrifices to You this morning as we have always been doing. Accept us LORD for what we are.

24.     We are here, not only representing ourselves before You, but every Elect of God scattered all over the globe. All that transcended from Adam whom You have later, lastly pardoned his iniquity, and then gave him righteous descendants.

25.     Father, help all of us that have been numbered along that lineage never to err; never to give in to the seductive antics of the devil, for he cannot trick us all the time.

26.     We have known his devices. We have known his tricks because from time to time, we suffered in his hands. He has nothing to offer us than destruction.

27.     May we never listen to his suggestions. May we never give ear to his fables. May we never give attention to his apparitions, for he is an expert in showing apparitions, but You show us the reality.

28.     You showcase the reality, for the Prophet foretold that apparitions will first come; phonies will first come to offset the real One, whenever it shall come.

29.     And LORD, we are living witnesses that they have really appeared in multiples and in millions before later; lastly the real One came. And we became a part of the real One.

30.     What a wonderful privilege we are enjoying? May this privilege never turn out to be our condemnation. Let it be for our justification throughout the eternity of eternities.

31.     Uphold us O God, for we are not the ones upholding ourselves. You are the pillar sustaining us. Keep on sustaining us unto the end.

32.     No matter how the devil will try to buffet us about, Father with Your mighty and outstretched hands, keep us rooted and grounded in this truth, immovable and unshakable unto the end.

33.     Grant that we may hold unto the profession of our Faith without wavering till we enter Paradise. LORD, we say Thank You indeed, for You are here with us. We can feel Your presence already. We can see, O God, even Your Glory around us.

34.     We therefore plead, whatsoever might be the dream our Brother David had, which frightened him so much that he even reported it to You and to You alone as the only interpreter of dreams; as the only One Who can forestall dreams that are evil from occurring, and then grant those ones that are good to occur.

35.     We bring that dream before You. As he is frightened, O God, You are not frightened. Father, we stand before You here and make a plea, “Cancel that dream.”

36.     Do not allow that dream to manifest. Do not even permit a semblance of it to manifest, not only among us and our relations, but among all human beings O God, peradventure some of them might repent, even today and embrace the truth. May no calamity befall anybody that we are associated with.

37.     Whether they be heathens or not, Father, we bring them before You, for our best neighbour is better than our best Brother afar off.

38.     For that reason, keep watch over our neighbours. May no calamity befall any of them. May they enjoy peace and progress from Your presence, O God.

39.     LORD, we bow down to Your respect and honour as we say THANK YOU LORD, for saving us from this untoward generation. Thank You LORD for gathering us in Your presence this morning to do us good and to gladden our hearts.

40.     Father, may today’s worship service everywhere be a worship service of joyful praises.

41.     To Your Name alone we give the Glory. To Your Name alone we give the Victory. To Your Name alone we give the honour, worship, adoration and exaltation, for You are the Almighty. Receive all for Your Most Holy Name, we pray. Amen!!!


 

Too many things can be inferred about this matter, but this is why we need the Son of Man who will lead us to the Truth, so that we can worship God acceptably (aright). ....... I am not worshipping the god of Israel. I am worshipping the Supreme God that created both Nigerians and the Israelites and made them only but one man. In the beginning, there was no Israel and there was no Nigeria. God made Adam and Eve. That is the God I am talking of and that is the God I delight in. Let us go a little further.

 

JESUS IN RELATION TO THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD (CONTROVERSIAL TRUTH) VOL. 1; Preached on Sunday 14th September 2003; Pg. 95 vs. 72 & Pg. 103 vs. 18 – 19

THE real GENESIS

 

Be seated. The LORD is good. All the time, the LORD is good. [The LORD led in praise worship unto Himself]

2.           Amen. Brethren, when I recount the goodness of the LORD, My mouth is filled with songs of praise. It is bubbling inside Me.

3.           If you are joyful that the LORD has redeemed you from this evil age, your heart will be filled with joy. Your mouth will be filled with joyful praises. I say, joyful praises because you have now traced Who your ancestors are; and why things are happening to you the way they are happening.

4.           Bear with me in this Studio this morning. All of you that are privileged in this Studio, give praise to the LORD. I say, give praise to the LORD.

5.           All that are connected to this Family of Faith, give praise to the LORD. Give praise to the LORD. I say, give praise to the LORD; joyful praise to the LORD.

6.           What a wonderful privilege for one to be added into God’s own family, not by your merits, not by the works you have done, not for anything good or evil, but simply because He the Almighty God decided that it should be so.

7.           He saw many; He saw thousands, but He chose you. Why Me? Why you? What have I done to receive this unfathomable favour from God?

8.           You see, when we consider what He has done, there is no amount of praise or worship we shall give to Him that will be sufficient.

9.           Anywhere I go, I will repeat the words of My first daughter, Ijeoma Jonathan, during My Birthday. She stood up amidst the Congregation who were giving God the praise for the marvelous works He has done in their lives and in their families.

10.        She stood up and told everybody and said, “Brethren, I say it with every amount of godly sincerity and love that even if we pull down the roof of this cathedral in this All Saints Sharon Hall in appreciation of what THE SON OF MAN has done for us, for our families, in our work places and every aspect of human life [name it]; if we pull this roof down, or pull the heavens down upon this earth, Brethren I say, “It is not sufficient.””

11.        Tell Me. What shall we give in honour and in appreciation to the LORD for saving us from this untoward generation.

12.        You can see what is happening around. Remember that all these reports you are reading from your social media; and from the television, you are seeing many. Are they not affecting individuals and families? Why not you. Why not your relations? Why not your Brethren?

13.        Is it not enough to lift up your hands and say, “God, live forever.” You see! People do not know what God is doing for them. They will only be good at saying what the devil is doing, but they forget to give God praise for what He is doing in our lives every day, even the protection and the feeding. Is it easy to feed? Oh no!

14.        I just give God the praise. When you consider what God has done for you, what He is doing in your own life, is He not worthy of your praise. Is He not worthy of your worship?

15.        SONG: [You are worthy; Worthy of my praise. You are the Most High, the Almighty God.

16.        The Almighty God, Creator of the universe, You are worthy to receive my worship.

17.        You are worthy; Worthy of my praise. You are the Most High, the Almighty God.

18.        I give You my praise. I give you all My honour. I worship You LORD. You’re the Most High God.

19.        You are worthy. Worthy of my praise. You are the Most High, the Almighty God.]

20.        Amen! I hope you are happy in this studio this morning. This is THE VOICE OF GOD STUDIO here in Nsugbe, Anambra State. To God be the Glory that God has identified with us. What a wonderful thing we are enjoying.

21.        I want to salute every Elect of God scattered all over the world, who are numbered among the righteous descendants of Adam. Take note of My introduction this morning.

22.        I said, “I want to thank God and appreciate Him on the behalf of all the sons and daughters of God, whom He has already chosen before hand to be made manifest in this day, that have traced their ancestral parents very well; that have traced their ancestral genealogies without any mistake. They can boldly stand up and say, “I know I am a descendant of Adam.” Not only Adam, but from the righteous descendants of Adam. That is where I proceeded from, for there are also unrighteous descendants of Adam.”

23.        These are the people that can be traced down to Cain. Cain, whose name appeared in the last book, even in the Bible. God was talking to us concerning love for one another.

24.        He said, “Love yourself. You love yourself as you have loved others. Love God, love yourself and love others. Do not allow your love to be like that of Cain who deceived his brother with his mouth that “He loved”, but went and lured him out and murdered him.”

25.        11The message you heard from the very beginning is this: we must love one another. 12We must not be like Cain; he belonged to the Evil One and murdered his own brother Abel. Why did Cain murder him? Because the things he himself did were wrong, and the things his brother did were right. [1 John 3:11 – 12 GNB]

26.        Do not allow your love to be that of Cain.

27.        And Cain married one of the daughters of Eve. From there, Cain reproduced his own unrighteous descendants, after his own kind. Do you believe it?

28.        He murdered Abel and worship of God stopped according to the Holy Scriptures; according to the Archeological parchment – Talmuds of the Sanhedrin; according to Ancient Patriarchs. I mean, according to all the ancient manuscripts we have so far recovered, except one which you will also see as I promised.

29.        25And Adam's wife again became pregnant, and she bore a son and called his name Seth. For God, she said, has appointed for me another child instead of Abel, for Cain slew him. 26And to Seth also a son was born, whom he named Enosh. At that time men began to call [upon God] by the name of the Lord. [Genesis 4:25 – 26 AMP]

30.        Hence, today, we can see too many that proceeded from Cain. For one hundred and thirty years after Cain killed Abel [one hundred and thirty years passed], Adam refrained from Eve.

31.        Adam knew Eve not because of the horrifying sin of transgressing against God by disobeying the instruction given to them, which the devil caused the woman to disobey.

32.         And then, being the only companion the man had in the Garden of Eden; the only one that could talk like a human being like him; somebody he confided in, and trusted in, for he had no other person than that woman.

33.        He made no mistake by trusting in the wife and confiding in her. And that wife he loved so much transgressed, and then persuaded him to disobey God also, for they wanted to attain divinity like God, which was the sin of Lucifer.

34.        Lucifer was an angel loyal to God; very good and was assigned with too many assignments. In short, he was the LORD God Almighty’s gun-bearer.

35.        Hear Me very well. One day, he decided to be like God. Pride set in; rebellion set in. Once Pride sets in, rebellion must surely set in, for Pride goes together with disobedience, stubbornness, rebellion and over-protection of self-ego.

36.        Satan told God that He [God] was taking too much of him; that God was assuming too much and that he could be like God.

37.        He rebelled, drew two-thirds of the angels to himself and the Almighty God exerted authority over him and those angels, pushed them down and they became the devil and the demons which we are suffering from this day.

38.        7Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels went forth to battle with the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought. 8But they were defeated, and there was no room found for them in heaven any longer.

39.        9And the huge dragon was cast down and out--that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels were flung out along with him. [Revelation 12:7 – 9 AMP]

40.        They metamorphosed and became human beings as we could see in Genesis chapter six. They started marrying and giving birth to children as we see in Genesis chapter six.

41.        Their children became giants of whom too many stories are being told on their behalf even till this day. Documented in the Scriptures.

42.         [4]In those days, and even afterwards, when the evil beings from the spirit world were sexually involved with human women, their children became giants, of whom so many legends are told. [Genesis 6:4 LB]

43.        Pay attention! I am not going there, but I just want to lay a background which of course I have taught you. If you go there, you will trace all of them.

44.        [Genesis 3:1 – 26 AMP] 1NOW THE serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [Satan] said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden?

45.        2And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat the fruit from the trees of the garden, 3Except the fruit from the tree which is in the middle of the garden. God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.

46.        4But the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die, 5For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing the difference between good and evil and blessing and calamity.

47.        6And when the woman saw that the tree was good (suitable, pleasant) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her husband, and he ate.

48.        7Then the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves apron-like girdles.

49.        8And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

50.        9But the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, Where are you?

51.        10He said, I heard the sound of You [walking] in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself. 11And He said, Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?

52.        12And the man said, The woman whom You gave to be with me--she gave me [fruit] from the tree, and I ate. 13And the Lord God said to the woman, What is this you have done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled (cheated, outwitted, and deceived) me, and I ate.

53.        14And the Lord God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all [domestic] animals and above every [wild] living thing of the field; upon your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust [and what it contains] all the days of your life.

54.        15And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her Offspring; He will bruise and tread your head underfoot, and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel.

55.        16To the woman He said, I will greatly multiply your grief and your suffering in pregnancy and the pangs of childbearing; with spasms of distress you will bring forth children. Yet your desire and craving will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.

56.        17And to Adam He said, Because you have listened and given heed to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it, the ground is under a curse because of you; in sorrow and toil shall you eat [of the fruits] of it all the days of your life.

57.        18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth for you, and you shall eat the plants of the field. 19In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you shall return.

58.        20The man called his wife's name Eve [life spring], because she was the mother of all the living. 21For Adam also and for his wife the Lord God made long coats (tunics) of skins and clothed them.

59.        22And the Lord God said, Behold, the man has become like one of Us [the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit], to know [how to distinguish between] good and evil and blessing and calamity; and now, lest he put forth his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever--

60.        23Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.

61.          24So [God] drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the Garden of Eden the cherubim and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep and guard the way to the tree of life.

62.        Then, after a hundred and thirty years, Adam changed his mind and met his wife Eve. And the Bible said, “Because it has taken a long time since he stayed away from Eve because of anger, he now repented and turned to his wife again. He now loved Eve more than he ever loved her from the very beginning. And from that day, never re-visited the evil Eve committed before Eve.” And then Eve took in and gave birth to a third son, a third son, a third son named Seth.

63.        Adam said, “Glory be to the Almighty God who has replaced for me, Abel whom Cain slew through trickery.” He tricked his brother out, “My brother, please accompany me to the field. Let us do God a service there.”

64.        They were alone; just the two of them. A brother to a brother. They got there on the basis of rendering sacrifices to God.

65.        Because he has an impure heart, God rejected his sacrifices or bounties, for he was a farmer. The Bible said that he came with the best of the land, which he could produce.

66.        But look at righteous Abel. He presented a lamb. A lamb is not worthy to be eaten. The offspring of a sheep is called a lamb. A small thing. The young of a sheep.

67.        The LORD accepted it and rejected that of Cain. Cain protested against God immediately and said, “Why this?” He demonstrated against his brother.

68.        Then God said, “Cain! If your heart had been right before Me, do you think that I would have rejected your offering? I turned down your offerings, not because of the bounties or because of this and that. No! What you have is what you will use to worship Me. I turned down your offering because you do not have a good heart.”

69.        You see why God expects offerings and sacrifices from people with good hearts.

70.        That is why David prayed, “Give my son Solomon a good heart so that he will obey you even to the least detail.”

71.        [19]Give my son Solomon a good heart toward God, so that he will want to obey you in the smallest detail and will look forward eagerly to finishing the building of your Temple, for which I have made all of these preparations.” [1 Chronicles 29:18 – 19 LB]

72.        IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A GOOD HEART, YOU WILL BE SELECTIVE IN OBEYING GOD. EVERY SELECTIVE BELIEVER OF THE WORD OF GOD DOES NOT HAVE A GOOD HEART TOWARDS GOD.

73.        So, when we say you have a bad heart, and you begin to rejoice, you are rejoicing over your calamity, for your bad heart will attract calamity; Disappointment, Despair, Disdain and eternal Death to you; eternal separation from God.

74.        Look at the prayer David made for his son who was to occupy that throne after him. Was he the first son of David? No! David had other sons who never had good hearts. The LORD selected who should be on that throne after David.

75.        It is like we use to say in Igbo, “Kingship is not contested. God knows the person that will be king. No matter what you do, he that is destined to be the king must be the king.” A contested crown belongs to somebody. Does somebody struggle to have that which belongs to him? Amen.

76.        The chicken must go to its roost. Destiny can be delayed and not denied. Did you get what I am saying? Destiny can be delayed, but not denied. Take note of it.

77.        And there is no competition in destiny. Whatever God has already pre-planned, so shall it be. Nothing can thwart it. The devil cannot thwart it. No enemy can thwart it. Simply be there.

78.        Trials will come. Temptations will come. Troubles will come. Because God must bring it to pass, You must surmount all. You will emerge victorious so that the Word God had already proclaimed concerning you might come to pass.

79.        WHATEVER GOD HAD ALREADY PLANNED FOR SOMEBODY IS TIED TO TIME. AND GOD WILL NEVER ALLOW THAT PERSON TO TASTE OF DEATH UNTIL THAT TIME GOD ALLOTTED IS COME, AND THE THING HAS HAPPENED AS GOD PLANNED IT. TAKE NOTE OF IT.

80.        I am talking to you from My experiences with God all these years. Believe Me, for I am in the bosom of the Father. I know the mind of the Father.

81.        This morning is going to be another morning for all of us here. A morning of hope. A morning of rejoicing. A morning of praise because I started My praises from the bed. It is bubbling in Me. It is not making noise. But real joyful praise.

82.        Hear Me very well. There is no mistake in whatever God is doing. The two human beings that were born on earth – Cain and Abel – One was unrighteous, while the other one was righteous.

83.        Cain persecuted Abel. Even when they were coming up, as tender as they were, when Abel had not married, God wanting to show us through Cain, what an unrighteous man will do. He is a murderer.

84.        That is why the Bible recorded in the New Testament, that we should not behave like Cain who was of the treacherous one, for he was of the devil.

85.        Through Cain, sons and daughters of devil became known and seen. Within the one hundred and thirty years. Cain was reproducing children.

86.        Before Seth was born; the third son of Adam, the Bible said that worshipping of God never started yet. Rather, Adam rejoiced exceedingly that God has replaced the righteous Abel, whom his brother Cain slew.

87.        Patiently, Adam and Eve waited. And the LORD said, “Adam knew his wife again, and she conceived and gave birth to twin daughters.” Twin daughters!

88.        And with the dispensation of time, Seth married one of the righteous daughters of Adam. The one that was planned for Abel to marry, Cain had taken that one. Adam gave the other to Seth to give to the son of Seth.

89.        From there, righteous lineage will come again. Seth begat his own son. When Seth was blessed with a son, that is, when Adam was blessed with a grandson;

90.        It was in the days of the grandson of Adam that worshipping of God started again. Men began to call upon the Name of the LORD God Almighty. Are you following Me?


 

……Even in the Message titled, “Son of Man: Our link to the Truth,” in the introduction, I made it clear that I have carried forward all the relevant passages of the Bible that are helpful to you. And for Me to accomplish this task of salvation to mankind, I equally told you that the Bible contains useful information and historical evidence that are capable of helping and defending you in the Faith of the Son of Man, for without the Bible, you would not have believed in Me, for the Bible spoke concerning Me.

THE TESTIMONY OF A TRUE WITNESS [1]

 

I am showing You all these thing because I was there from the very beginning.

2.            When Saint Luke was talking, he said you should believe his report. He was talking to Theophilus who was very dear to him, and said that he was there from the very official beginning as an eye witness; ear witness and mouth witness.

3.           And then he documented vividly all that transpired more than all that met Christ on the way. The idea was to guide Theophilus against error.

4.           Pay attention. If you read the account of Luke, when Saint Paul was talking concerning Luke, he was talking concerning those that have left him. He made it clear that Demas had left him and joined the world. He has loved the things of the world more than God.

5.           He mentioned those who were working together with him, but departed. And he was only left with Luke. We read it here. I think in the book of First Timothy.

6.           9Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me: 10for Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia. 11Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry. [2 Timothy 4:9-11 KJV]

7.           [9]Please come as soon as you can,
[10]for Demas has left me. He loved the good things of this life and went to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia. [11]Only Luke is with me. Bring Mark with you when you come, for I need him.
[2 Timothy 4:9 – 11 LB]

8.           Sylvanus, Timothy, Titus and a few sisters who were also helping them in the work in the Ministry. These were the only people that were left.

9.           Syntyche, Phoebe and the rest of them. Susanna, Sylvanus; they were with him, even Urbane. But the rest departed.

10.        Even the one that went to Pamphylia, joined the world.

11.        Luke started with the LORD Jesus Christ and ended with Saint Paul. From the very official beginning, being a Physician and highly educated, he never made any noise.

12.        That is why He is one of the best synoptic writers till today. His reports are accurate and believed by all and sundry.

13.        Pay attention! I am giving you backgrounds before I go into the Message proper because what I want to speak on by way of going evangelical is to enable you understand what we are going to read. Even the topic is thrilling. I cannot do it without, first of all, taking you to the Bible.

14.        So, I want to read Saint Luke’s Gospel chapter one. Get Living Bible and Amplified. At your own time, you can read others. Get also King James version. Remember I am making a tape to the entire universe.

15.        Luke 1:1 – 3 Living Bible. [1-2]Dear friend who loves God:... Friends and not enemies. Those that love God and not those that hate God.

16.        TO LOVE GOD IS TO LOVE THE TRUTH. TO LOVE GOD IS TO LOVE THE TRUTH, FOR GOD IS THE TRUTH. HE THAT ABIDETH IN THE TRUTH ABIDETH IN GOD.

17.        THE DEVIL KNOWS THE TRUTH BUT DOES NOT ABIDE IN THE TRUTH. THAT IS WHY HE DISOBEYED.

18.        As long as our praises, so long shall be our praises and our teaching, for we have eaten natural food. We want to eat spiritual food to enrich our souls. I go back to that Scripture.

19.        Now pay attention! Saint Luke was the one that was talking to Theophilus. And Theophilus, being a noble man, full of integrity and honour and respect was also counted worthy to be among those trustworthy young men, for the Scriptures enjoined us right from the Old Testament from the Book of Isaiah down to the Book of Timothy, “That which I have taught you, hand over to trustworthy men, who will be able to teach others.”

20.        "Write down all these things I am going to do, says the Lord, and seal them up for the future. Entrust them to some godly man to pass on down to godly men of future generation” [Isaiah 8:16, LB]

21.        “For you must teach others those thing you and many others have heard me speak about. Teach these great truths to trustworthy men who will, in turn, pass them on to others." [2 Timothy 2:2, LB]

22.        This is so that whoever hears the Good News, tell his or her neighbour about it.

23.        That is why the Apostles could say in the Acts of the Apostle, “Believe our reports, for they are according to truth. If any decides not to believe in us, he has counted himself unworthy of eternal life.”

24.        46Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. [Acts 13:46 KJV]

25.        Luke 1:1 – 3 Living Bible. [1-2]Dear friend who loves God: Several biographies of Christ have already been written...

26.        Take note! Not one biography. Several had already been documented. Many documented as hearsay; third hand information.

27.        IF YOU WERE NOT PRESENTLY THERE WHEN AN EVENT TOOK PLACE, YOU ARE NOT WORTHY TO BE A TRUE WITNESS.

28.        ANYTHING YOU NEVER WITNESSED WHEN IT OCCURRED, AND YOU GO ABOUT SPREADING IT BECAUSE YOU HEARD IT, YOU ARE SPREADING HEARSAY.

29.        OFTENTIMES, HEARSAY MAY NOT BE AS ACCURATE AS IS BEING REPORTED. HENCE I HAVE WARNED YOU TO STEER CLEAR FROM HEARSAY; STEER CLEAR FROM RUMOUR; STEER CLEAR FROM ANYTHING FALSE INFORMATION.

30.        Do not spread any. If you are not there; you are not sure and you are not certain, keep your mouth shut.

31.        Even if you were there and you want to report that event, report accurately, so that when you are cross-examined, everybody who knows the truth about it will approve you to be the right reporter of that event.

32.        You cannot be an eye-witness or a true witness over an event or an incident that occurred in your absence. And you were not there. You simply heard from others.

33.        Do you know how many things that were subtracted and added along the way by those that heard before it got to you? So be careful. Learn wisdom.

34.        IT IS BETTER TO CLOSE YOUR MOUTH THAN TO SPEAK ON SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WELL INFORMED ABOUT.

35.        ...Several biographies of Christ have already been written using as their source material the reports circulating among us... Amen!

36.        What did they use as their source material? Hearsay! “Reports that were circulating among us.” They laid hands on them and started reporting as if they were there.

37.        That is why you could see all the Apostles of Jesus Christ; because they were not selected or chosen or called in one day from one place; They were called into Apostleship by Christ at different times and in different places.

38.        Check how many years that elapsed before Matthew was called. Matthew was a tax collector, but the difference between Matthew and others is that he was a learned fellow. He was an accountant. Take note of what I am saying.

39.        Check the number of months that elapsed before Andrew was called; before Nathaniel was called; before Bartholomew, who was met on the way, was called.

40.        This is because it was a calling that lasted for three and a half years. So, at any point you are called in, that is the point where you know. Every other thing that happened before then was hearsay.

41.        So, people were writing biographies of Christ, basing the sources of their information on reports about Christ that were rife [circulating] everywhere in their day.

42.        But there was one who was there from the very official beginning who could give verbatim, accurate reporting about that Christ. Amen.

43.        No wonder, when others failed, he remained steadfast. Jesus died, resurrected, and he remained steadfast. Saint Paul had to confirm that he remained steadfast with him until the two of them gave way.

44.        If you know you love God and you love your life, pay attention to Me this morning. But if you hate your life and you hate God, do not pay attention, no matter wherever you are, hearing Me.

45.        That is why I normally give you the Message, after which I say, “BELIEVE IT IF YOU CAN.” And I know you cannot believe unless you do love yourself and you love God; and you love the truth.

46.        Luke 1:1 – 3 Living Bible. [1-2]Dear friend who loves God: Several biographies of Christ have already been written using as their source material the reports circulating among us from the early disciples and other eyewitnesses.

47.        Reports from early disciples and eyewitnesses, of whom the writers were not one of them. They just gathered information. It was a period of information gathering.

48.        There is a great difference between you who had been with Me from the very beginning and those who joined along the way in the year 2000. Some came in 2005. Some in 2009.

49.        Hence, I normally say, “How I wish that those who were with Me from the very beginning in Amazu Oil could be alive and testify.”

50.        Somebody who was born in the wilderness, many years after the people of God left Egypt and crossed the Red Sea, can that person tell the story of what happened in Egypt?

51.        Whatever the person will be reporting will be what happened from the time he was born in the wilderness.

52.        SO, AT ANY TIME YOU JOINED, THAT IS THE TIME YOU WILL BEGIN TO TELL YOUR OWN STORY. But there must be one like Caleb and Joshua. Amen.

53.         Listen to Me. An Igbo adage says, “The vulture prayed that the people that knows it should not all die, lest the children that were born afterwards and who do not know it should kill it and eat it thinking they are eating turkey.”

54.        This is because when you look at vulture and turkey, there is a semblance, but an elder knows the difference between the two.

55.        THAT IS WHY THOSE THAT KNOW CHRIST SHOULD NOT ALL DIE. IF GOD NEVER LEFT US WITH A SEED, FROM WHERE HE WILL REPRODUCE, WE WILL NOT KNOW WHAT THE TRUTH IS FROM THE VERY BEGINNING.

56.        29And as Isaiah said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodom, and been made like unto Gomorrah. [Romans 9:29 KJV]

57.        WE MUST KNOW THE TRUTH FROM HE THAT EXISTED FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. AND THAT IS CHRIST WHO WAS THERE WHEN THE WORLD WAS CREATED.

58.        1Before anything else existed, there was Christ, with God. He has always been alive and is Himself God. [John 1:1 LB]

59.        MANY SAW HIM. MANY HEARD HIM SPEAK. MANY ATE AND DRANK WITH HIM. AND CHRIST IS HERE, FOREVER MORE, FOR HE PROMISED, “I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU TILL THE END OF THE WORLD” FOR THE SAKE OF THE RIGHTEOUS DESCENDANTS OF ADAM, FOR THAT IS THE ONE WHO WILL OPEN THE GATE OF PARADISE, AND LET ADAM AND EVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS DESCENDANTS OF ADAM INTO PARADISE.

60.        [1]Christ was alive when the world began, yet I myself have seen him with my own eyes and listened to him speak. I have touched him with my own hands. He is God’s message of life. [2]This one who is life from God has been shown to us, and we guarantee that we have seen him; I am speaking of Christ, who is eternal Life. He was with the Father and then was shown to us. [1 John 1:1-2 LB]

61.        That is why, when He came, He said, “I am praying for My own. I am not praying for the world, that You sanctify them by Your Word, for Thy Word is Truth.”

62.        9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. ....... 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. [John 17:9, 17 KJV]

63.        He turned to the believers and said, “Now are you clean by the Words I have spoken to you, abide in Me, for in me you have peace; in the world, you have troubles.”

64.        3You are cleansed and pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you]. [John 15:3 AMP]

65.        33I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.] [John 16:33 AMP]

66.        This is somebody that promised He will not leave you comfortless and that He will send somebody who will guide you into the knowledge of the whole truth, for He will not speak of Himself, but whatever he seeth and heareth from Me, that He will give to you.

67.        16And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever-- 17The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you. 18I will not leave you as orphans [comfortless, desolate, bereaved, forlorn, helpless]; I will come [back] to you.[John 14:16-18]AMP

68.        13But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future].[John 16:13]AMP

69.        When He was here fulfilling His own assignment, He told those who were milling around Him, “I have too many things I would have revealed to you, but your faith could not bear them. Nevertheless, I cannot overstay.

70.        I cannot overstay, for I am assigned to a limited time, and I have no descendant. I have ancestors, but no descendant.

71.        Nevertheless, He that is coming after me [Oh No!] is greater than Me, for He will guide you into the knowledge of all truth.

72.        He will accuse you of unbelief first. He will also remind you of all that I taught you. He will reveal to you, things that are yet to come.” Is it not true? For He was there from the very official beginning.

73.        This time around, he will live for a longer period, for he will live to marry and have descendants after Him, which I never had, for He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

74.        If he does not marry and have descendants, then the essence of God instituting marriage is completely defeated. What is the essence of marriage if not to produce godly descendants?

75.        Oh! To God be the glory. How I wish all of you will capture this exhortation this morning before we go to the Message proper. I have not given it a title, but I will give it a title.

76.        Do you have a good heart? It is a treasure. You have a good heart? It is a treasure.

77.        To these people who have good hearts, righteous descendants of Adam, God said, “I have given them believing hearts to believe the truth.” Anything that is erroneous, their hearts rejects it.

78.        Their hearts are so much purer than to behold anything ungodly; than to admit anything unrighteous, for they proceeded from the righteous lineage. Am I making sense?

79.        I will correct many things here today. Let us go ahead. Hear people reporting from hearsay, but there must be some who will say, “We were there!” “I was there.” “It is not happening behind Me, for I was never excommunicated for one day. I never absented Myself from Fellowship for one day. I have been following strictly.”

 

 

 

You are entitled to your views. Present your views, your feelings, your thinking. No problem. I envy you not. Neither will I be jealous of you. I will not even tell people not to believe for I am a Master Builder. The wind is coming, the rain is coming, the storm, the tempest is coming to shake the two buildings. Any one that collapses, eyes will see. Any one that stands the test of time, eyes will also see. That is why I am taking My time crosschecking every material, crosschecking facts, crosschecking information. I do not pass information to My people anyhow.

THE TESTIMONY OF A

TRUE WITNESS [2]

 

Luke 1:1 – 3 Living Bible. [1-2]Dear friend who loves God: Several biographies of Christ have already been written...

2.           Not only one o! SEVERAL! And the several biographies produced several denominations; all holding half-truths.

3.           Several biographies produced seven church ages; all holding half-truths. Not even one had the full Truth.

4.           That is why in all those dispensations, a portion of the truth was assigned to them, and not the holistic truth until One comes on the scene as promised, Who will come with the holistic truth, Who will gather all those loose ends, tie them together and lift up Christ. Amen!

5.           WHEN YOU KNOW THE SON OF MAN AND HIS COMMISSION, HAPPY ARE YOU. EVEN IF HE TELEPHONES YOU, BEFORE ANSWERING THE CALL, YOU WILL BE DANCING.

6.           WHAT IF HE SHAKES YOUR HAND? YOU WILL KNOW THAT YOU ARE BLESSED ALREADY.

7.           [1-2]Dear friend who loves God: Several biographies of Christ have already been written using as their source material the reports circulating among us from the early disciples and other eyewitnesses.

8.           [3]However, it occurred to me that it would be well to recheck all these accounts...

9.           To crosscheck all these accounts that have been going about gathered from here and there. Accounts that were gathered half-hazardly from people.

10.        [3]However, it occurred to me that it would be well to recheck all these accounts from first to last and after thorough investigation...

11.        Investigative reporting! That is what we call it in journalism, not speculative journalism. Speculative reporting is very dangerous, for you speculate after your own imagination and conclusion. It may be false.

12.        That is why, in all these counterfeit churches today, what they are doing is speculative preaching. Hence, they are inundated by pseudo-psychological religious promises that can never fulfill till eternity.

13.        Promising their members something God never promised; Saying what God never said because they are imagining things which God has not for one day uttered to anybody and has never revealed to any Prophet.

14.        They became their own self-acclaimed prophets; instruments in the hand of the devil; parading themselves about as messengers of Light, while in them is darkness; using signs and wonders, apparitions which is the work of the devil to cage all that will subscribe to their tricks.

15.        By trickery, they are winning the confidence of the world, not God. All that love the world and the things that are in the world go after them.

16.        If a Message is from God, the world will pay no attention to it, for any Message from God repels the world. Am I making sense? Thank you!

17.        The Bride must go where the Bridegroom is. The world will go where the attraction is. What is the attraction? Apparition! Euphoria! Pseudo-psychological religious promises! False promises they are making religiously.

18.        Looking at them, they look pious, but they are grievous wolves; gorgeously dressed, elegant, fine to look at, both man and woman alike.

19.        Everywhere on the land is dotted by ministries of all sorts.  I have a ministry. Individual! Collectively! What is it producing today? We can see the products in the society.

20.        Why are crimes increasing, while churches and mosques are increasing every day? Instead of crime reduction, you see crime increase. Who is deceiving who? We better face these stark realities of the truth. Amen!

21.        Do you have a good heart towards God? do you have a good heart towards one another? Take note! VERY VERY ESSENTIAL, for God delights himself in people with good hearts. if you do not have a good heart, you will never obey god even in the minutest details; in the leaSt detail.

22.        As one who was there from the very official beginning, Luke decided to document after thorough investigations. After thorough investigations of the various biographies that had already been circulating, he that was there from the official beginning found fault and took it upon himself to straighten the records as a guide against error.

23.        [3]However, it occurred to me that it would be well to recheck all these accounts from first to last and after thorough investigation to pass this summary on to you,....

24.         Immediately THE SON OF MAN appeared on the scene, He said, “You have no right to echo ‘Amen’ to My Message or sit down to say you are worshipping God here. Until you are convinced, you have no right to show concern.”

25.        Get convinced beyond reasonable doubt; and then show concern. No matter how many years it will take you to get convinced, keep on investigating.

26.        That is why He said, “For you to be a member, you must sit down, investigate, scrutinize [is it not true?], and evaluate by asking very hard questions in areas that appear confusing. Until you are satisfied beyond reasonable doubt, do not ever subscribe to this Faith, for it is a delicate Faith.”

27.        IT IS A DELICATE FAITH, FOR NO SENSIBLE FELLOW THAT HAS WISDOM AND INTELLIGENCE GAMBLES WITH HIS ETERNAL DESTINY, FOR EVERY MAN’S ETERNAL DESTINY IS TIED TO HIS BELIEF. TRUE OR FALSE?

28.         YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY IS TIED TO YOUR BELIEF, FOR YOUR BELIEF DETERMINES YOUR ACTION. AND YOUR ACTION DETERMINES YOUR FINAL DESTINATION, FOR YOU MUST PASS THROUGH JUDGMENT. AMEN.

29.        Why did Saint Luke take it upon himself to do thorough investigation? He did not want to document anything falsehood, lest his hearers will perish.

30.        [3]However, it occurred to me that it would be well to recheck all these accounts from first to last and after thorough investigation to pass this summary on to you, [4]to reassure you of the truth of all you were taught. O Theophilus!

31.        1SINCE [ as is well known] many have undertaken to put in order and draw up a [ thorough] narrative of the surely established deeds which have been accomplished and fulfilled in and among us,

32.        2Exactly as they were handed down to us by those who from the [official] beginning [of Jesus' ministry] were eyewitnesses and ministers of the Word [that is, of the doctrine concerning the attainment through Christ of salvation in the kingdom of God],

33.        3It seemed good and desirable to me, [and so I have determined] also after having searched out diligently and followed all things closely and traced accurately the course from the highest to the minutest detail from the very first, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus,

34.        4[My purpose is] that you may know the full truth... Not half-truth, for every half-truth is a lie and very deceitful. Half-truth leads to unbelief. Half-truth leads to misbehaviour. And that full truth is in Somebody today.

35.        ...and understand with certainty and security against error... Is it not the essence of full Truth? The full truth he was referring to was the one known to him that time, not the full Truth THE SON OF MAN will give, for he was a mere disciple. Did you get the Message?

36.        He that will give the full Truth was in the making. He was a disciple of the forerunner. That is what I am saying. The man that foreran THE SON OF MAN, who pointed everybody to the One that will come after Him.

37.        When HE, THE SON OF MAN shall come, shall He find Faith? When He the Spirit of Truth shall come, He will now guide you into the knowledge of the full Truth; the wholesome truth, which no disciple knew, for there was no full truth during their day.

38.        But the full truth he was referring to was all that transpired concerning salvation from the day He was born to the day He was crucified and He resurrected. Period! But after that, Saint Luke knew it not. Amen!

39.        The Son of Man he lived with in his day was the One that died for sin. He died to take away sin. But THE SON OF MAN Who will come with full and complete salvation [including the salvation of Luke] was not yet come in that day. Did you get the Message? I hope we are following.

40.        4[My purpose is] that you may know the full truth and understand with certainty and security against error THE ACCOUNTS (HISTORIES) AND DOCTRINES OF THE FAITH...

41.        The much that were disclosed to them in their own dispensation. Now is the dispensation of THE SON OF MAN, that you may know the full accounts, the histories and everything.

42.        And then, He will stand upon the histories; He will stand upon the full account and then lead you into the full truth.

43.        That is why He is raking up all these ancient manuscripts and parchments which were unknown to mankind that are living in our own day. Is there any who can claim that he knows anything about them?

44.        Let nothing distract My attention. I am on a strict mission. I do not want anything carnal, or worldly or natural to veer Me off. If it is your clothe, let it be drenched.

45.        Give Me attention! Attention means your ear and your heart. Your ear may be here and your heart is away. You cause havoc to yourself and others.

46.        When a pilot is on duty, he avoids every distraction, for he is focused. He knows the lives of the passengers on board are in his hands together with his own life. So, pay attention now.

47.        As we ride on, watch! This day had already been prophesied. When God said through prophecy, “By the time the Great Mahdi [Hazrat Mahdi] will be here in human form again [son of Mary], Who will wind up the history of the world”, we read it in the Message which we read even yesterday morning, “BEHOLD THE LORD’S CHRIST.”

48.        The son of Mary; the one who appeared in the beginning in the east will also appear again in the west in the end. Now salvation will now no longer be of the Jews, but will now be of the Gentiles and also of the Jews.

49.        He will be King over the Gentiles and over the Jews. He will also be a Priest; high Priest in the order of Melchizedek, King of Salem, Priest of the Most High, Who has not beginning of days nor ending of days; Whose reign is eternal.

50.        Take note of where we are heading to. He is not only in heaven. He is also on earth at the same time, for the High Priest is in Heaven, and the Kingship on earth.

51.        In the days of the forerunner, there was no King, but there was a Prince. He was killed as a Prince. He never established a Kingdom, for the Kingdom has not yet been established. And there can never be a Kingdom without a King.

52.        He was a Prince; a crown Prince Who will also be King over the established Kingdom. For you to be a king, you must be a crown prince.

53.        That is why, in a community that has a good dynasty; that keeps records, kingship is royalty. I say, kingship is royalty.

54.        Hence we tag it as “THE ROYAL HIGHNESS.” It can never depart from the royal family until there is no sensible man in that family again. Did you get the Message?

55.        He was a crown prince, killed as a prince. He was the prince of the Most High, and the Jews said He is not king of the Jews and He never also became king, for when they wanted to make Him king, He said, “No! My kingdom is not of this world yet.”

56.        But a day is coming when the kingdom of this world shall be the kingdom of God and his own children.

57.        Everything has time. And that is after five thousand, five hundred years, when that Man; that seed of Adam, that was preserved through Seth will put on human flesh, “When I shall come down from heaven and wear the infirmities of human beings in my own flesh.” All the infirmities.

58.        That is why, He made Himself perfect through suffering, through the things He suffered so that He might be the Succorer of all of us when we pass through that condition. Amen.

59.        Whereas the Son of God was born directly into His earthly Mission, the Son of Man had to traverse a far wider sphere before He could enter into the beginning of His actual Mission.

60.        As a condition for the fulfillment of His task, which in comparison to that of the Son of God was more earthly, the Son of Man, coming as He did from the highest Heights, also had to descend into the deepest depths.

61.        Not only in the beyond but also here on earth, so that He might personally “experience” all the misery and suffering of mankind. Only then will He be in the position, when His Hour comes, to intervene effectively in their shortcomings and help to bring about change.

62.        For this reason, He could not stand aside from the experiences of mankind, but through experiencing the bitter aspects Himself, He had to stand in the midst of them and suffer from them. Again, it was only for the sake of men that His learning period had to be like this.

63.        Let Me go to the message proper. [My purpose] is that you may know the full truth and understand with certainty and security against error,...

64.        Is this not the reason why THE SON OF MAN has been here guiding, protecting, instructing, teaching, using all available histories and evidences.

65.        When Hazrat Mahdi will be here, the LORD God Almighty must have put in place scientific equipment with which He will use to communicate with people in distant lands, making it possible that wherever throughout the whole world, you will be privileged to hear from Him, see Him and interact with Him.

66.        When our Qaim [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] appears, Almighty Allah WILL PROVIDE MEANS WHEREBY EVEN PEOPLE LIVING MANY MILES AWAY WILL BE ABLE TO SPEAK TO, SEE AND HEAR OUR QAIM FROM WHEREVER THEY MAY BE. (Mu’jam Ahadith al-Imam al-Mahdi, Vol. 4 p. 57 and Bihar Vol. 52 p. 336).

67.        That is not all. If not for those things which never happened before, do you think I will be raking up these records today?

68.        And those things were not in existence when I made the promise. I knew where they were packed. I promised I will rake them up; all the missing books in the Bible, for those things the scholars of that day could not lay hand on were hiding the real truths.

69.        This is also because they laid hands on the ones that favoured their beliefs. But any one that never favoured their belief, they laid it aside.

70.        And this thing happened when Titus with the armies of Rome came in the time of Emperor Nero, and conquered Jerusalem and carried every archeological parchment; the Torah, the Talmuds of the Sanhedrins. He carried all of them to Rome, for Rome was ruling the whole world.

71.        Remember it was in the days of Rome that Jesus was born. In the day of Emperor Augustus Caesar, who gave the proclamation that there should be a head count; a census for every nation.

72.        It was during that period when they [the parents of Jesus] were going home that the labour started. Mary delivered on the highway, inside a bush. The Messiah was born in the bush, lying on a manger.

YOU MUST KNOW YOUR ANCESTRAL LINEAGE [1]

 

Now, are you surprised that in the end time, [Oh!] it must be Africa first. In one of the jungles in Africa where they least expect a believer, there lies the eternal Word of God as a baby in the manger.

2.           295-47My meetings have been slowly failing since that time. Though I went to India with nearly a half a million standing there, but that wasn't doing what God said do. And I feel that my meetings will never be a success until I go right straight back and make that thing right.

3.           No matter what I do, it's Africa first, 'cause you've got to do it. There lays God's eternal Word laying there. I knew better than that. But I've got to go back. And I feel that this coming year is the time I'll crawl out of the shell by the help of the Lord.

4.           This glorious old Gospel who's been growing easy like a oak tree, but I believe she's about ready to spread forth her branches now. I believe It. This great Message and great thing, I believe that the Lord let us shake the world again for the glory of God. [Hebrews, Chapter 7 (Series, part 1); Preached on Sunday evening, 15th September 1957 at the Branham Tabernacle in Jeffersonville, Indiana, U.S.A.]

5.           Then the Prophet Muhammad Raheem [pbuh] said, “Expect Him coming from Afik” from one of the roughest jungles; Afik! Afik means Africa.

6.           “WHAT DO THE QUR’AN COMMENTATORS SAY ABOUT HIS RETURN? According to Al-Baidawi (renowned Quran commentator d. 685 A.H.) ’He (Christ) will descend in the Holy Land at a place called Afik...’” [www.message4muslims.org.uk]

7.           And the Prophets foretold about Him. When you go to the Book of the Songs of Solomon, God was lamenting that His people abandoned Him in the jungle and gave him over to tame animals in the forest, while they were enjoying good lives in Canaan.

8.           And by time they saw Him coming out, they could not recognize Him again. They were scared!

9.           And He told them clearly, “Despise Me not for I am black, for the sun has dealt treacherously with Me, for My Brethren abandoned Me in the wilderness, and then went enjoying themselves in the city. I was left in the wilderness.”

10.        1Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother’s children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept. [Song of Solomon 1:6 KJV]

11.        If God never preserved this “A Seed”, we would have been like Sodom; we would have been like Gomorrah.

12.        From that righteous Seed; from that righteous descendant of Adam, Christ has reproduced Himself again.

13.        And from one of the jungles in Africa, the Almighty God will stir up a revival with a few people, that will encircle the whole earth. It will go in electronic form. It will go in newspaper print media. It will go in all forms until every predestinated Elect of God must come into contact with it, and then jump up.

14.        So I’ve watched for something.  Has it slipped by us in humility and we have missed it?  Is it gone and the Church is left in her sins? If that be so, then it’s later than you think.  If not, then there’s coming One with a Message that’s straight on the Bible, and quick work will circle the Earth.

15.        The seeds will go in newspapers, reading material, until every predestined Seed of God has heard it.  None of them will come unless the Father has drawed them, and everyone the Father has drawed will hear it and come. 

16.        That will be the predestined Seed will hear the Word.   Then when that takes place, it‘ll be a gathering together.   And Jesus shall appear, and there will go the church from all over the earth like that, with the resurrection, going up. (COD II Page 724, Paragraph. 179 – 180)

17.        I have been quiet for some time, hoping that I will bring you to a level where if I make a sound, you will echo a stretched reply; if I shake one leg, you jump up, for you know Who I AM. You know what has been happening. And you know why it has been sounding the way it is sounding.

18.        Who can hear the bell now ringing? Who can hear the bell now ringing? Watch! God knows what is happening. A revival!

19.        The Prophet William Branham said, “There shall be a revival after this Pentecostal Age. It shall not be a denomination. It shall not be a church. IT SHALL BE A MAN.” A MAN! ONE MAN! ONE IN A MILLION, CHOSEN BY GOD.

20.        He said, “Expect Him after me, for once more, I will ride this trail again.”

21.        SONG: [Don't you hear the bells now ringing? Don't you hear the angels singing? T’is the glory hallelujah jubilee. In that far off sweet forever, Just beyond the shining river, When they ring those golden bells for you and me.]

22.        Oh! How I wish we were plenty here so that you will catch up with this song. Can’t you hear the bells now ringing? Can’t you hear the angels singing? It the Glory Alleluia! It is Jubilee! Jubilee means freedom.

23.        And I was singing, [One day – one day, we shall be free. We shall be free. There’ll be no more sorrow. We shall be free. We shall be free. There’ll be no more sickness. We shall be free. We shall be free. There’ll be no more war. We shall be free. We shall be free.

24.        There’ll be no more trouble. We shall be free. We shall be free. There’ll be no more fears. We shall be free. We shall be free. There’ll be no more violence. We shall be free. We shall be free.

25.        There’ll be no more mortuary. We shall be free. We shall be free. No more graves. We shall be free. We shall be free. No more caskets. We shall be free. We shall be free.

26.        No undertakers! We shall be free. We shall be free. No vigilante! We shall be free. We shall be free. No more army! We shall be free. We shall be free. No more police. We shall be free. We shall be free.

27.        Only FREEDOM! We shall be free. We shall be free. Only Peace! We shall be free. We shall be free. ONE DAY! We shall be free. We shall be free. ONE DAY! ONE DAY! We shall be free. We shall be free.]

28.        You know, now we are in dungeon. Everything had been groaning, travailing in pains, waiting for that glorious day when sons and daughters of God shall be liberated from this bondage of the world.

29.        22For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. [Romans 8:22 – 23 KJV]

30.        Men are living in fear, which was not God’s original plan in creating human beings. God never created human beings to torment them. No! It is the devil who disobeyed from the beginning that led human beings astray. Hence, calamities are befalling human beings today. But there must be a remnant that will live the story.

31.        SONG: [By and by when the morning comes; When all the saints of God are gathered home; We will tell the story how we overcome, For we’ll understand it better by and by]

32.        Nobody will ask why again, for you will understand it better.

33.        Why is THE SON OF MAN labouring? It is to guide you against error. He gave you the Message, BE CAREFUL ABOUT THE ERRORS OF THE WICKED, for there are people that received half-truths, rumours, hearsays, and went about spreading them and documenting them.

34.        And they are in the minority. They are doing it with the intent to deceive those who are not rooted and grounded in the truth; full truth!

35.        William Branham said and I quote, “When you go to a city and there is no bread, but you see people eating half bread, eat it with them anyhow. But if while you are there eating half bread, you hear that there is a place where there is full bread, abandon half bread. Go for the full bread. That is where your nourishment will come from, and not from half.” Amen!

36.        To God be the glory.

37.        [My purpose] is that you may know the full truth and understand with certainty and security against error,...

38.        Certainty! Knowing the certainty of God, the account and then offer you security against error.

39.        ...the accounts (histories) and doctrines of the faith of which you have been informed and in which you have been orally instructed.

40.        Spoken Word! The Original Seed. We equally saw it in THE LEGENDS OF THE JEWS. It said, “Believe in the word I have documented for you in the Torah. Believe more in the one I have spoken to you face to face, mouth to mouth, for therein lies My mind for that hour.”

41.        MY mind for that hour. If I want to talk to My wife now, I will never tell her to go and read what I wrote before. AM I making sense?

42.        GOD TALKS TO US ACCORDING TO OUR PRESENT CIRCUMSTANCES, AND PUTS US IN REMEMBRANCE OF THE PAST AS A GUIDE AGAINST ERROR. DID YOU GET THE MESSAGE?

43.        I am not wasting My time. I told you that I have come. Nobody can force Me to move faster. No! Slowly and steadily; slowly and steadily. The time will not over-delay. Never! It can never over-delay.

44.        WHY AM I WALKING STEADILY AND SLOWLY? I AM NOT LEAVING ANY STONE UNTURNED, FOR I AM GIVEN THE GREATEST ASSIGNMENT TO UNEARTH AND BRING TO REALITY GOD’S SALVATION PLAN STARTING FROM THE GARDEN OF EDEN WHERE THE RIGHTEOUS ABEL WAS KILLED DOWN TO THE LAST MAN THAT WILL LIVE HERE BEFORE THE CONSUMMATION OF THIS AGE, SIFTING EVERYTHING AS I GO, MAKING SURE THAT THE INNOCENT IS NOT DESTROYED WITH THE GUILTY; THAT NO RIGHTEOUS FELLOW IS DESTROYED WITH THE UNRIGHTEOUS.

45.        If I see one who I know belongs to the Flock, and is not walking right, My duty is to halt and tend that one. If I succeed in taming him, I will add him to the Flock. I continue again.

46.        Why? When God wanted to destroy the people of the Jews in the wilderness, Moses fell in the gap and pleaded with God, “Do not kill them. Remember how long they lived in Egypt and learnt the ways and the lives of the Egyptians. A good number of them were born in Egypt.

47.        When they went to Egypt, they were seventy. They are now more than one million, showing that majority were born as Egyptians and they grew up as Egyptians. So, if they are misbehaving, God, do you not think that they are acting according to the way they know? Why killing Your people? Do You not know that Your enemies will say that You are no longer capable of leading them to the Promised Land? So, please show mercy.”

48.        God said, “Moses, according to thy word, I have forgiven and pardoned. Only those that will remain obstinate; powerful, obstinate, hard, unrepentant unbelievers will I number and destroy as we journey along. But the rest that change their hearts and their minds to obey Me in all matters, definitely I assure you most solemnly, they and their righteous descendants must possess the promised Land, which is Palestine; Canaan.”

49.        Did the LORD fulfill it? Yes! Tribe by tribe; Local Assembly by Local Assembly; family by family. When they entered, records were taken according to families and according to tribes.

50.        Are we not in families? Are we not in tribes? Why not give a clap offering to the LORD?

51.        That which He did in time past; that He is repeating before you, that all men will fear before the LORD. I am the LORD, I changeth not. Therefore, ye sons and daughters of Jacob can never be consumed. Amen.

52.         [14]And I know this, that whatever God does is final—nothing can be added or taken from it; God’s purpose in this is that man should fear the all-powerful God. [15]Whatever is has been long ago; and whatever is going to be has been before; God brings to pass again what was in the distant past and disappeared. [Ecclesiastes 3:14-15 LB]

53.        For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. [Malachi 3:6 KJV]

54.        YOU MUST KNOW YOUR ANCESTRAL LINEAGE. I am coming to something. I have been talking about the two foundations of your existence. I have now traced your Source; know your status. Today, I am nailing it down in another dimension. No mistake about it.

55.        Luke 1:1 – 4 King James Version. 1Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,

56.        2even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;

57.        3it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,

58.        4that thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.

59.        Continue as I continue with the Message. Get translations ready. I am zooming off.

60.        When we hear this from Luke, it is better that we verify this truth. Remember, he was there, but he was not Christ. He was a disciple that was picked along the way by Christ revealed in his day.

61.        Now, he knew only but that one meant for his own dispensation. He could not be there and talk about Branham, Martin, Columba, and Irenaeus. He could not even talk about Muhammad Raheem [pbuh]. He could not talk about Him.

62.        And I will show you many many things today. Your eyes of understanding will get illuminated the last time. After teaching you along this narrow way to Paradise; the moment your eyes are opened, you will know Who I am.

63.        And then, I will cease communing with you. I will cease communing with you for fear of revealing more things that may be injurious to men; to men! Mortal men.

64.        Pay attention. Let Me verify the account of this man, Luke.

...physically speaking, spiritually speaking, I am the Highest Spiritualist. I do not say it for you to clap hands. I know I am the Apogee (Zenith) of Spiritual Realm. I know that. You bypass Me, you will meet nothing but emptiness. I know that very well. When you run and run and get to Me, it is all over. You will go back to the origin again. That is pure truth. I do not say it to seek your opinion. No. No. No. you better prove it before you begin to make noise around it.

YOU MUST KNOW YOUR ANCESTRAL LINEAGE [2]

 

Gospel according to Saint Matthew chapter one from verse one. Let us listen to the ancestral fathers of Jesus Christ. The ancestors of Jesus Christ. Pay attention, everybody.

2.           Matthew 1:1 – n, Amplified version of the Bible. 1THE BOOK of the ancestry (genealogy) of Jesus Christ... Take note of it, for I have come in the volume of the books to fulfill all that are written concerning Me.

3.           There is something in tracing your ancestry, for things happen to us according to our ancestral descent. I am the One declaring it as One Who was there from the very beginning. When the world was without form, I was there. Without Me, there was nothing ever created that was created.

4.           That is why, when He descended, He said, “Look unto Me and get saved, all ye people of the earth; all the ends of the earth, for I am the LORD your God; your Saviour. After Me cometh no other.”

5.           SONG: [I am He that liveth and was dead. Behold I am alive forevermore. Come unto Me O ye nations and be saved, for I am He that liveth and was dead.] Let somebody say, AMEN!!!

6.           SONG: [I am just a pilgrim here. I am going home. One day, I’ll take my cross, go home to rest. And with the angels there, we gonna sing redemption song on how we overcome; I am going home]

7.           Pay attention as we go through the genealogy; the ancestral genealogy of the man, Jesus Christ. The man, Jesus Christ. Take note! Not the Man, SON OF MAN. Pay attention!

8.           Matthew 1:1 – n, Amplified version. 1THE BOOK of the ancestry (genealogy) of Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed),...

9.           Are you convinced that Allah is swift in taking records? He keeps records. He does not joke with records. By His attributes, you will know Who He is. Do not forget the thirteen attributes; Thirteen attributes of the almighty God.

10.        The thirteen attributes. If you forget it, you will run into difficulty with Him. He does not chide. He says what He means and He means what He says. The thirteen attributes.

11.        And also, do not lose sight of the four gifts He bestows upon His Prophets. You call them Prophets, but they are God EnMorphe.

12.        Who can declare things that are not yet come and they will come? Will you attribute it to the god of your people? Who will proclaim a new thing and it will come to pass? Who will do it if not the Almighty God? Tell you the end from the very beginning. Who will do it if not the Almighty?

13.        Can the devil do that? Never! Has he done that before? Never! Will he do it? Never! Glory be to God.

14.        1THE BOOK of the ancestry (genealogy) of Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed), the son (descendant) of David, the son (descendant) of Abraham.

15.        2Abraham was the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers, 3Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar, Perez the father of Hezron, Hezron the father of Aram,

16.        4Aram the father of Aminadab, Aminadab the father of Nahshon, Nahshon the father of Salmon,

17.        5Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab, Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth,... What? I will speak on these two women. ...Obed the father of Jesse,

18.        6Jesse the father of King David, King David the father of Solomon, whose mother had been the wife of Uriah, 7Solomon the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, Abijah the father of Asa,

19.        8Asa the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of Joram [Jehoram], Joram the father of Uzziah,

20.        9Uzziah the father of Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, Ahaz the father of Hezekiah, 10Hezekiah the father of Manasseh, Manasseh the father of Amon, Amon the father of Josiah,

21.        11And Josiah became the father of Jeconiah [also called Coniah and Jehoiachin] and his brothers about the time of the removal (deportation) to Babylon.

22.        12After the exile to Babylon, Jeconiah became the father of Shealtiel [Salathiel], Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel,

23.        13Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, Abiud the father of Eliakim, Eliakim the father of Azor, 14Azor the father of Sadoc, Sadoc the father of Achim, Achim the father of Eliud,

24.        15Eliud the father of Eleazar, Eleazar the father of Matthan, Matthan the father of Jacob,

25.        16Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, Who is called the Christ. (the Messiah, the Anointed)

26.        Note it! So, Joseph the husband of Mary came from the righteous lineage, although these things happened in Egypt.

27.        In your King James version, you will see Rachab, but in modern translations, all of them wrote Rahab.

28.        That was Rahab of Jericho, where Caleb and Joshua took refuge when they went to destroy Jericho. She was the only woman that recognized the two as angels of destruction that came from the Jews.

29.        3And the king of Jericho sent to Rahab, saying, Bring forth the men who have come to you, who entered your house, for they have come to search out the land. 4But the woman had taken the two men and hidden them. So she said, Yes, two men came to me, but I did not know from where they had come. ...

30.        ... 8Before the two men had lain down, Rahab came up to them on the roof, 9And she said to the men, I know that the Lord has given you the land and that your terror is fallen upon us and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you.

31.        10For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the [east] side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed.

32.        11When we heard it, our hearts melted, neither did spirit or courage remain any more in any man because of you, for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath. [Joshua 2:2 – 4, 8 – 11 AMP]

33.        Nobody knew them as spies and as Jews except their own sister. Blood is thicker than water. That is Rahab. King James version wrote Rachab, while other versions of the Bible wrote Rahab.

34.        Pay attention! Remember that Jericho is Israel annex. They are in the same territory with Lebanon, with Syria. All of them are the land of Israel.

35.        Their sister recognized them as Drusilla, the wife of Governor Felix; a Roman centurion, recognized her own blood, Saint Paul.

36.        And one of the sons of that woman gave Paul the information of the plot by the Jews against him and of why he will be taken to Agrippa in Rome for the determination of his case, which Felix could not determine, [1] being his in-law and one who heard from him and said, “Paul, go for now. When I have a convenient time, I will invite you.” The Bible said that Felix was a Roman that married a Jewess, Drusilla. May God help us today.

37.        Watch Rahab, of all harlots in Jericho. I do not believe Rahab was the only harlot. I do not believe. And that harlot, if you trace that harlot became the ancestral mother of Mary Magdalene, who was also a notorious harlot [As mother, like daughter], until the Messiah also came her way.

38.        Known unto God are all his works from the foundation of the world. If I can trace these people, you can trace your own.

39.        Now, I show you another one. Ruth was a Moabite, who through her love for her mother in-law [Oh No!], the wife of Elimelech, who had two sons, Mahlon and Chilion; one meaning death and the other one meaning hardship.

40.        They went to a strange land of the Moabites, and Mahlon and Chilion died; their father died, for they left Jerusalem, the land of bread and went to that land. Ruth was left alone.

41.        Watch! God knows what He is doing. God knows what He is doing. Naomi was the person that ordered the lady [Ruth] and the other one [Orpah], “Go back to your parents. You are young ladies that have no children. You can remarry. I am stricken in age and I do not have any other son who can marry any of you according to our tradition. So, go and take care of yourselves and let me go and die in my old age; die in my troubles and die in my afflictions.”

42.        One heard the voice and said, “Bye bye!” And that was Orpah. Ruth said, “Mother! Mother in-law, I love you. Even if you will not have any husband for me or anything, let me nurse your old age. Who will take care of you at this old age? I know how much you have been doing here. I have been doing gleaning.”

43.        Gleaning means going to farmland when the owner must have taken his crops. Whatever you can get that is the leftover, belongs to you.

44.        When the yams are harvested and out in the farmer’s barn, anybody who goes to the farm afterwards to harvest any tuber of yam that is left in the farm has not stolen it. It is the same with maize.

45.        That was what that lady was doing to take care of the mother in-law in exile. All of them were just suffering. Then, the mother in-law entreated her more and more to go back. She was very persuasive.

46.        Ruth said, “Mama! My mother in-law, I love you. The same love I have for my late husband, I transferred to you. We have been living together in peace. Even if I will not get any child, let it be credited to me that I nursed you in your old age. So, Mama, from now please entreat me no more to go back. Do not force me to go back any more. And do not ever tell me that. I am not going back to my people again. I am going with you. Your people will be my people. Your God will be my God. Anywhere you die, there I will die. Anywhere you are buried, there I will be buried. This is my decision.”

47.        That is why I called it THE GREAT DECISION. Unflinching love. Unfailing love. Undoubtable faithfulness. You see what loyalty is all about.

48.        That is why Prophet Muhammad Raheem [pbuh] said, “When our Hazrat Mahdi will appear here on earth in human form, all of you that will be privileged to be here when He will be here, abandon every other thing you are doing; run to Him. Cleave to Him. Pledge your allegiance. Never depart from Him, for He is the One that leads straight to Me.”

49.        It is related that our Prophet (saas) said: The Hour will not come until the Qaim [Hazrat Mahdi (as)], my descendant, appears. This will be at a time permitted by Allah.  Those who follow him will be saved, while those who hang back will be perished. O servants of Allah! Fear Allah: WHEN HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) APPEARS, ABANDON EVERYTHING AND RUN TO HIM BY ALL POSSIBLE MEANS because he is the caliph of Allah and my heir. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 51, p. 65; Al-Hurr al-Amili, Ithbat al-Hudat, Vol. 6, p. 382)

50.        If Allah permits you to see this RUN TO SWEAR ALLEGIANCE TO HIM [FOLLOW HIM] AND NEVER ABANDON HIM. IF YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL, NEVER ABANDON HIM IF YOU REACH HIM AND FIND THE TRUE PATH. Ah – and he pointed to his chest – how I long to see him. LET NOTHING HOLD YOU BACK FROM SWEARING ALLEGIANCE TO HIM [FROM BEING HIS FOLLOWER, FROM FOLLOWING HIM] those who hold you back are those who have always sought refuge in corruption. If they speak, they speak evil, and if they are silent, they are impious and perverse. (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Numani, al-Ghaybah al-Numani, p. 252)

51.        Watch Ruth and her righteous decision. A Moabite got attached to a good Seed. And that is Naomi.

52.        When they were going back, people came out to receive Naomi, the woman shouted to the people because she had already declared to her daughter-in-law saying, “My daughter, let us go back, for our God has visited my people again. Our God has returned to save us and to live among us. He has spoken good concerning us. Our land is blossoming again. Let us go home.”

53.        On their way home, people came to receive them. They called Naomi by her name, but Naomi said, “No!” Naomi means sweet, beautiful, and pleasant. That is the meaning of Naomi.

54.        She said, “Call me no more Naomi. Call me Mara. Mara means bitterness, for the LORD had dealt with me treacherously. The LORD had dealt with me without mercy. I am no longer sweet or pleasant or desirable. My beauty is gone. My laughter gone, for I lost my husband in exile. I lost my two sons. One of my daughters-in-law departed. I am left with this one, a Moabite.”

55.        And through a Moabite, Obed came. From Obed, Jesse came. From Jesse, David. From David, Solomon. From Solomon, Christ. Check righteous descendants. Did you get the Message?

56.        What can you say about the one the Bible said, “That was the wife of Uriah the Hittite?” That is Beer-Sheba, Uriah’s wife whom David took for his own wife, even when the husband was alive.

57.        And because of the trouble, he killed the man. The LORD was not happy with Him. He said, “You could have taken the wife and spared the man. Why taking the wife and also killing the man because you are king? You will suffer. I gave you many wives. Your late master, Saul had many wives. If you had needed more wives, you would have appealed to me, and I would have drafted all the wives of your master Saul to you. Why taking this little goat that belongs to this young man? And instead of leaving him alive, you killed him.”

58.        David, in order to comfort the woman married her. Although the child born by her died. That was a girl. She conceived again, and gave birth to Solomon. Can you see the Beer-Sheba giving birth to Solomon?

59.        The same way you will see Abigail, the wife of Nabal; a stingy man who was as stingy as his name. Her generous deeds to David were noted by God. When Nabal died, David co-opted her in the fleet of his wives.

60.        From there, you see the first son and you see the lineage. It boiled down to righteous lineage. Am I making sense at all? Amen.

61.        When you have righteous descendants, and you do what your ancestors did or even better, because the idea of progressing is to better the records as you journey along.

62.        The Twelve Patriarchs of the Jews narrated their ordeals to their children, told them where they erred and the appropriate punishments; and warned them not to repeat their mistakes, for they might not survive in their day.

63.        Though the LORD will not cast them away in their day, but they will suffer. To avoid suffering [the wrath of God], they were warned never to attempt provoking God to jealousy [to anger], for He is swift in taking records and judges without partiality. He accepts no bribe from anybody.

64.        If you want to win His favour, remain obedient to His instructions. You are on His side. You fear not.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you belong to the Elect, believing God to be Man is an easy case. There is nothing difficult there. But if you do not belong to the Elect, it is an unbearable saying which attracts death penalty.

YOU MUST KNOW YOUR ANCESTRAL LINEAGE [3]

 

Now, we continue with those ancestral names.

2.           15Eliud the father of Eleazar, Eleazar the father of Matthan, Matthan the father of Jacob,

3.           16Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, Who is called the Christ. (the Messiah, the Anointed)

4.           17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen, from David to the Babylonian exile (deportation) fourteen generations, from the Babylonian exile to the Christ fourteen generations.

5.           When you add all of them, how many generations? After you add it. And I will tell you the meaning of adding it and where you will arrive at.

6.           Pay attention now. I want you to see the truth. You have heard some truths, but not the full truth.

7.           Matthew joined along the way. This was the much he recorded. Adam was not mentioned. Seth was not mentioned, and down the line. You could not see anything Ishmael there. Pay attention. I am going somewhere.

8.           Gospel according Saint Luke chapter three, from verse twenty-three to thirty-eight. I hope you are with Me. It is not My Message. I have not given the Message a name o. I will give it a title before I will read the Message for the Sunday School.

9.           I am building a foundation for you to understand what I am going to unfold, for I am going to unfold something that will make you to run to the sky now. Amen.

10.        I am only introducing something. I know many that are believers of THE SON OF MAN will leap for joy today, even with the introduction.

11.        Now, go to Saint Luke’s Gospel and let us know whether he was there before Matthew and whether he accurately investigated and scrutinized both histories and evidences, and then guided us perfectly well against error, and also for our own security.

12.         If there be anything he did not get, THE SON OF MAN will show you that thing, for he did not have the full truth. Do you believe it? Not even one came with the full truth.

13.        HE THAT HAS THE FULL TRUTH IS THE ONE TALKING TO YOU. HE THAT IS GATHERING ALL THE LOOSE ENDS; ALL THEY OMITTED, HE GATHERED THEM ANYWHERE HE SAW THEM.

14.        IF HE SEES THEM IN THE HINDU, HE WILL GATHER. IN THE SHINTO, HE WILL GATHER. IN ISLAM, HE WILL GATHER. IN ROSICRUCIAN, HE WILL GATHER. EVEN IN THE SECRET SOCIETY, HE WILL GATHER. IF HE SEES IT IN THE MORMON, IN BAHAI, IN ECKANKAR; ANYWHERE HE SEES THE TRUTH, EVEN IN THE GRAIL MESSAGE, HE WILL GATHER.

15.        IF HE SEES IT IN THE DEVIL’S SHRINE, HE WILL PICK IT THERE, FOR HE CREATED THE DEVIL.

16.        And the chiefest or the most wicked angel is behind all the activities of evil the LORD is doing. When the LORD wants to wreak havoc, He sends the chief or the most wicked angel called Sammael.

17.        .... Sammael is an angel whose name has been interpreted as meaning "angel" or “god" (el) of "poison" (sam). He is the guardian angel of Rome another enemy of Israel. .... [The Hebrew Book of Enoch; Chapter 26 verse 12]

18.        He hastened to Paradise, but when the angels that guard its gates beheld Samael, they drove him away and said, "Wicked one! [LEGENDS OF THE JEWS, Volume III – SAMAEL’S VAIN SEARCH; Paragraph 9]

19.        He [God] will detail him; tell him what to do and where to go. He [God] will detail the one in charge of rainfall, for the angel in charge of rainfall is there.

20.        22Therefore there is a measurement for the rain, and the angels are in charge of it. And these things I saw towards the Garden of the Righteous. [Ethiopic Book of Enoch; Chapter 60 – Noah’s Vision – verse 22]

21.        The angel in charge of thunder is there. The angel in charge of sunshine is there. The angel in charge of the wind is there. The angel in charge of the moon is there. Those in charge of day and night are there.

22.        If God wants darkness to cover everywhere, He will command the angel in charge and darkness will cover everywhere. To the one in charge of the sea, He will tell him the extent the flooding will get to and stop so that flooding will not go where it should not go.

23.        ALL OF THEM HAVE THEIR NAMES WITH THE SON OF MAN. THAT IS WHY ANYONE HE DETAILS MUST CARRY OUT THE ASSIGNMENT.

24.        The angel of death is there. Nobody dies unless He details the angel, “Go and bring him home.” Did you get what I am saying? HE, Himself is the Angel of Life.

25.        That is why He tells you, “Life and death are in the hands of the Almighty God. Will there be evil in the city and the LORD has not done it? I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything impossible for Me to do?” He said no, for with God, all things are possible. Why? He is the Almighty. He can do all things without entertaining query from anybody.

26.        If He wants to keep you alive, He will keep you alive. If He wants to crucify you, he will crucify you. You cannot do anything.

27.        When Moses was protesting he asked Him a question, “Are you through with your protest? Okay, go for now. I have exerted My authority over you. And this is where you will stop. Stop lamenting. Stop ranting! Stop ranting and lamenting, for it cannot change My decision.”

28.        When Adam was deceived, Adam was given the same reply, “Enough of this crying and fasting, lest you kill yourself. Eat this fruit. I gave it to you, but you ate it without hearing from Me. That made you a sinner. Now, I am giving you this to eat.”

29.        Adam said he will not eat again. “We do not know what He has in mind. The one we ate put us into trouble. How can we eat? My dear Eve, do not eat it. Let us keep it for Him. We better die of starvation, lest we incur the worst punishment.”

30.        The LORD came down after forty-three days of their fasting and said, “Oh! You did not eat it.” They said, “We are afraid, lest worse things will befall us.” He [the LORD] said, “Oh! My fear is now restored in you, O Adam. Adam! Would you not attain divinity again, which the devil promised you in deceit?” Amen.

31.        LET US BE VERY CAREFUL. IF THERE IS A TIME WE SHOULD BE CAUTIOUS, IT IS NOW. IT IS A TIME OF GREAT FALLING AWAY FROM THE FAITH THAT THE LAST TRUTH MANIFESTS. WHEN THE LAST TRUTH MANIFESTS, THERE WILL BE A GREAT FALLING AWAY.

32.        These people we call “Fall Away” had already fallen away before the last truth appeared.

33.        Those who came to drink during the wedding feast at Cana drank the old wine that was sour. They filled their stomach with sour wine. When it was exhausted, they left.

34.        When they left, the LORD Jesus came. Through the pleading of the mother, fresh wine came through water.

35.        Those who drank the fresh wine regretted having filled their stomachs with the old wine. Those that left when the old wine finished did not partake of the new wine.

36.        When the people that waited behind and partook of it got home and told them the miracle that took place, they believed it not.

37.        This is because, to them, they could not believe that a human being could turn water into wine; “Why did He not make it when we were there? Why did He wait until we had left, and then this sweet wine now came?” Can you get what I am saying? It is an analogy.

38.        That is why I have told you; a slave that is purchased when there was grievous famine on the land that has befallen his master, should not run away. After the rain cometh the sunshine. This is because famine has a beginning. And it must have an end. Did you get the Message?

39.        WHATEVER THAT IS BEFALLING YOU IS TIME-PROGRAMMED. YOUR PROBLEMS ARE TIME-PROGRAMMED. DID YOU GET THE MESSAGE?

40.        ONCE IT HAS A BEGINNING; IF YOU KNOW THE DATE AND THE HOUR YOUR PROBLEM STARTED, THAT WILL TELL YOU THAT YOU WILL KNOW THE DAY IT WILL END, FOR WHATEVER HAS A BEGINNING MUST HAVE AN END.

41.        I AM SAYING THAT EVERY PROBLEM HAS AN EXPIRY DATE. EVERY SICKNESS HAS AN EXPIRY DATE. EVERY TROUBLE HAS EXPIRY DATE. WHEN IT EXPIRES, IT CEASES ITS EFFECTS.

42.        So it is. If God is patiently enduring you, God’s endurance over you has expiry date. Do not be numbered among those God has been patiently enduring, waiting for the day He will execute them.

43.        Be those that will form His objects of praise and pleasure, who will dwell with Him eternally; Who God will be joyful to live with at all times, twenty-four hours of the day, till eternity, for they cannot be objects of offence. There is nothing in God that will make them to be offended. Nothing! God is always their delight.

44.        I showed you how Ruth pinned her hope on Naomi. Amen! How I wish our Sisters can learn their lessons, for the Bible enjoined them to look up to their mother Sarah, Who was obedient to her own husband and called him, “My LORD”; whose daughters you are if you pin your hope on her.

45.        Am I speaking another thing? Is it not the same thing? A woman pinning her hope on her fellow woman is scriptural. Ruth pinned her hope on Naomi. Did you get the Message?

46.        Naomi pinned her hope on the God of Israel Who has returned to live with His people, and spoke good concerning them by prospering them. Amen!

47.        I go further. Saint Luke’s Gospel chapter three verse twenty-three through thirty-eight.

48.        Luke 3:23 – 38, Amplified.

49.        23Jesus Himself, when He began [His ministry], was about thirty years of age, being the Son, as was supposed, of Joseph, the son of Heli,

50.        24The son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Jannai, the son of Joseph,

51.        25The son of Mattathias, the son of Amos, the son of Nahum,... Can you hear these names? They were omitted there. Even Levi. ...the son of Esli, the son of Naggai,

52.        They were omitted there, for they were gathering their records here and there. They were not there from the official beginning.

53.        What Matthew documented was the little he could gather. But there was one who was there from the very official beginning.

54.        All these names you are hearing now, have you not been reading them from the archeological parchments; the Testaments of the Patriarchs? Have you not been coming across these names? Can you imagine Matthew omitting Enoch?

55.        26The son of Maath, the son of Mattathias, the son of Semein, the son of Josech, the son of Joda,

56.        27The son of Joanan, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zerubbabel,... Did you hear these? They were missing. ...the son of Shealtiel, the son of Neri,

57.        28The son of Melchi, the son of Addi,... Melchi and Addi, they were all missing. ...the son of Cosam, the son of Elmadam, the son of Er,... These names were missing.

58.         After investigating thoroughly the ancestral genealogy, not depending on hearsay, this is the result. And anyone he omitted, I will bring that one back.

59.        That is what is meant by gathering the loose ends. It is to present a perfect picture of what it is, and not apparition.

60.        29The son of Jesus, the son of Eliezer, the son of Jorim, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi,

61.        30The son of Simeon, the son of Judah, the son of Joseph, the son of Jonam, the son of Eliakim,

62.        31The son of Melea, the son of Menna, the son of Mattatha, the son of Nathan, the son of David,

63.        32The son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of Boaz, the son of Salmon (Sala), the son of Nahshon,

64.        33The son of Aminadab, the son of Admin, the son of Arni, the son of Hezron,... These ones were completely missing ...the son of Perez, the son of Judah,


 

131Behold! his Lord said to him: "Bow (thy will to Me):" He said: "I bow (my will) to the Lord and Cherisher of the Universe." 132And this was the legacy that Abraham left to his sons, and so did Jacob; "Oh my sons! Allah hath chosen the Faith for you; then die not except in the Faith of Islam." 133Were ye witnesses when death appeared before Jacob? Behold, he said to his sons: "What will ye worship after me?" They said: "We shall worship Thy Allah and the Allah of thy fathers, of Abraham, Isma´il and Isaac,- the one (True) Allah. To Him we bow (in Islam)."

Surah 2:131 – 133 Abdullah Yusuf Ali

YOU MUST KNOW YOUR ANCESTRAL LINEAGE [4]

 

The son of Jacob, the son of Isaac,... Now, where you see the son of Isaac, take note of it. Pay attention! You will see the son of Ishmael. Did you get what I am saying?

2.           You will see the son. The first son of Abraham was Ismaila. Ismaila means Ishmael. Then before you see that Isaac. Ismaila and then Isaac.

3.           That is why when Abraham died, it was recorded in the Scriptures, “His sons, Ishmael and Isaac came together and buried him.”

4.           And God blessed Ishmael for playing the role of the first son. He also blessed Isaac for playing the role of the second son.

5.           In the case of Esau and Jacob, God blamed Jacob when he was talking concerning Esau. Who is a descendant of Ishaq? A descendant of Ishaq.

6.           Esau was the one the father Isaac loved more than Jacob. And that provoked anger to the mother of Jacob. And the mother of Jacob now turned out to foment a plan to take the title and blessings due to Esau and give it to Jacob. And that caused trouble between Esau and Jacob.

7.           Hence their father said, “Although you are brothers, you will keep on warring against yourselves until I come to the end of the world when I shall come from heaven and take human flesh and then bring the two together, for one will be a Jew while the other one will be a Gentile. Enmity will be between two of you. Did I not tell you, even when your mother Rebecca was pregnant that there are two nations in her womb?”

8.           Two nations! We saw the two nations; Israel and others.

9.           34the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor,

10.        35The son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Shelah,

11.        36The son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah,...

12.        Have you heard Shem, the first son of Noah? We are tracing righteous descendants. And I will show you another righteous descendant also and a condition by which your name can be included in the righteous descendants.

13.        If you are a Gentile, there is hope for you. If you are a Jew, there is hope for you. And I now show you that your salvation is now in your hands depending on the choice you want to make.

14.        You choose to be of a good heart or a wicked heart. The choice is yours.

15.         36The son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech,

16.        37The son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch,... Can you imagine? You have seen Enoch here. You have seen Methuselah. The man that lived for 969 years, whose great great great great grandchildren saw and joined hands in burying him.

17.        Methuselah joined hands in burying Adam and Eve. Enoch was the one that wrapped the corpse of Adam together with others, for they lived longer years that time than we are living today.

18.        The more we live today, the shorter the lifespan. It began with the tenure of David, whose iniquity cut down longevity. Longevity began to diminish in the days of David who died at 70.

19.        And it was recorded concerning David that he died at an old age. How can 70 be an old age? The meaning is that he lived longer than he could have lived going by the iniquities he committed; the atrocities and the violent life he lived, for he could have died long before then.

20.        That is why, when he wanted to build a temple for God, the Almighty said, “No! Your hands are filled with blood. Bloody hands can never build a temple for me.”

21.        From his childhood, he was bloody. He could have died of violence long before that time. That is why they said that he lived long. They never knew he could clock up to 70. Amen.

22.        From that time, if anybody crosses 70 by dint of sound health or anything, sickness will befall him; the legs will be shaking. The waist will be shaking. The hands will be shaking.

23.        That is why above seventy, you live it in trembling. Trembling hands; trembling mouth. Everything trembling. This is because it is deemed that the life has expired. Whatever that is left will just be gradually going down.

24.        That is why, the best of every man is realized at 70. After seventy, you are going back to the soil.

25.        That is why, government in recognition of this fact extended the retirement age for judges to 70. People in exalted positions, 70 years. And made it clear that anybody above 70 years can never give any plausible evidence in any law court, for it is believed that the brain has diminished. And when the brain diminishes, the life also diminishes. Amen.

26.        I want you to see where I am heading to gradually. If I remain further, I will be 66. It remains four years. Then I will meet it. And I pray that I will be stronger with passing years. Am I making sense? Good!

27.        But the land where you are heading to is the land where you will never grow old. That is where we are desiring, Whose Builder and Maker is the Almighty God.

28.        Let us continue with the genealogy. I hope you are paying attention. You are noticing names that were completely omitted in Matthew.

29.        37The son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalaleel, the son of Cainan, 38The son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of ADAM, THE SON OF GOD.

30.        The son of who? The son of Enos, E.N.O.S. The son of Seth. It was during the birth of Enos [not Enoch] that worshipping of God started again. That was when the worshipping of God resumed. The son of who? The son of Seth.

31.        ...the son of ADAM, THE SON OF GOD. You can see the genealogy, the ancestral descendancy of all that will come from this Righteous Branch. The Righteous Branch came from the Righteous Root. A Righteous Branch from a Righteous Root.

32.        There shall be a root from Jesse. Check the genealogy. I hope you are with Me. Let there be no distraction whatsoever. I am doing something.

33.        Pay attention! Now, in all the two accounts Cain was absolutely and conspicuously missing; Cain and his own descendants.

34.        All the deeds of Cain are recorded in the ancient manuscripts including the wife of Cain, the children of Cain, how Cain died, the people that buried Cain, the punishment of Cain, what Cain suffered before he died, for Cain committed suicide.

35.        The whole documents are with Me. They are written in the ancient scrolls in Aramaic; translated to Ethiopic. From Ethiopic to the King James version of English. And from there to modern day English. They are all with Me in the scrolls.

36.        The day is over when we begin to think about Adam as an imaginary man. Why am I able to know all these things? In the beginning was the Word. The Word was with God. The Word was God. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. The Word became a human being.

37.        Philippians 2:6. Since God’s children are human beings, God also became a human being with them, for only as a human being can He guarantee their salvation. God, as a Spirit cannot guarantee your salvation.

38.        [14]Since we, God’s children, are human beings—made of flesh and blood—he became flesh and blood too by being born in human form; for only as a human being could he die and in dying break the power of the devil who had the power of death. [Hebrews 2:14 LB]

39.        Let us read where I quoted. Philippians 2:6, Amplified version. 6Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped or retained,

40.        7But stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being.

41.        Read it in Living Bible or King James version. God veiling Himself in a man, not counting it robbery.

42.        This is where all of you are dying in My hands. Your inability to turn the Scriptures quickly. And this is because you idle away your time in the kitchen, eating and drinking and making merriment.

43.        When I was in your own age, My hands were fast turning the Scriptures, for in studying them, you get rooted and grounded in the truth.

44.        If you know Scriptures, you cannot err, for My people err, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. You study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, but rightly dividing the Word of truth. If you want to live with Me, you must know the Bible.

45.        Philippians 2:5 – 7, Living Bible. [5]Your attitude should be the kind that was shown us by Jesus Christ, [6]who, though he was God, did not demand and cling to his rights as God, [7]but laid aside his mighty power and glory, taking the disguise of a slave and becoming like men.

46.        He became a human being like unto us.

47.        Philippians 2:5 – 6, King James version. 6Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

48.        7but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

49.        Pay attention! For God to be a man today, is it contrary to Scriptures? It said, “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever. I am the LORD I changeth not.” God does not change, but He changes His mask. Period!

50.        Now I am going to something greater than that. We have read 1st John 1:1 and you know what it said. Christ was in the world before the world began. I myself have seen Him and heard Him speak. I have touched Him with My own hands. He is God’s Message of life.

51.        [1]Christ was alive when the world began, yet I myself have seen him with my own eyes and listened to him speak. I have touched him with my own hands. He is God’s message of life. [1 John 1:1 LB]

52.        He was the one that told them you pore over the Scriptures and turn the pages of the Bible because in the Bible you think you have eternal life. But the Bible is the thing that testifies about Me, and you refuse to come to Me that I will give you eternal life.

53.        39You search and investigate and pore over the Scriptures diligently, because you suppose and trust that you have eternal life through them. And these [very Scriptures] testify about Me! 40And still you are not willing [but refuse] to come to Me, so that you might have life. [John 5:39 AMP]

54.        Pay attention! I am switching over. I have shown you righteous descendants. They are incomplete until the righteous descendants of Ephraim are named after them.

55.        God said, “I will not forsake Ephraim. Neither will I forsake Manasseh, for Ephraim is my firstborn; First son, for he was and is there.” All his descendants that will behave righteously before God are inclusive.

56.        They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn. ....... 20Is Ephraim my dear son? Is he a pleasant child? For since I spake against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore my bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, saith the Lord. [Jeremiah 31:9 & 20 KJV]

57.        All the descendants of Esau that will behave righteously before God are inclusive. That is, all that are named after Edom, the first gentile nation.

58.        8Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom. [Genesis 36:8 KJV]

59.        God did not exclude the Egyptians, for God used Jethro to open the Gate for the Egyptians and his descendants.

60.        7You shall not abhor an Edomite, for he is your brother [Esau's descendant]. You shall not abhor an Egyptian, because you were a stranger and temporary resident in his land. 8Their children may enter into the congregation of the Lord in their third generation. [Exodus 23:7 – 8 AMP]

61.         2After two days He will revive us (quicken us, give us life); on the third day He will raise us up that we may live before Him. [Hosea 6:2 AMP]

62.        The righteous descendants of Jethro; they have access to Paradise in the end.

63.        One of the descendants of Jethro was Jonadab, son of Rechab, who, when he heard from a prophet that God would destroy the Temple, bade all his children, as a toke of mourning, to drink no wine, use no oil for anointing themselves, nor cut their hair, nor dwell in houses.

64.        The Rechabites obeyed this command of their sire, and as a reward for this, God made a covenant with them that their descendants should always be members of the Sanhedrin, and teachers of Israel.

65.        The covenant with the Rechabites was even stronger than that with David, for to the house of the latter God promised to keep the covenant only if his descendants were pious, but He made an unconditional covenant with the Rechabites. God rewarded them for their devotion to Him in this way, although they did not belong to the Jewish nation. From this one can gather how great would have been their reward if they had been Israelites. [173] [LEGENDS OF THE JEWS Volume III – Jethro Rewarded; Paragraph 173]

66.        18And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he hath commanded you;

67.        therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me forever. [Jeremiah 35:18 – 19 KJV]

68.        I am switching over.
