ACTION TIME PART 4 (FIX YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL)

Preached on 1st January, 1998 (NEW YEAR MESSAGE/END OF CAMP MEETING 1997 ) At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE SUPREME INTELLIGENCE” “Truth has no substitute”  © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

I am the Divine Source, the True Deity, the Infinite Being, the Cause of all causes and of all effects; One Who governs the whole Cosmos.

Believe it if you can…
—The   Son of Man
From the Message: LEADERSHIP (PP.3)

Israel is our timetable. Israel is our time piece. I am trying to prove it that the Lord has fulfilled His Words in our day, that these prophecies have come to pass: Almighty God who scattered His people to all the countries in the world has started bringing them back, and now that He is gathering them, He is not gathering them in sin again, He is now gathering them for His Name sake. He said that He is no longer going to deal with them in accordance with their sins.
Watch what God is doing. Now that you can see the movement, don’t you know what is about to take place? Do you know when the whole world will signal alarm to tell you that the last man has come back? Maybe we do not know where we are heading to. Know the manner of God you are having dealings with.
Events are made clear by prophecy. We can see the events lining up. All that the Lord prophesied and said we should watch out for, you see them coming to pass. One day you will see the catching away of the saints coming to pass, because it is lined up. –The Son of Man (BEGINNING AND THE ENDING OF GENTILE DISPENSATION, PART 1 VOL 1 PAGE 112 VS 19-21)

1
        ONLY BELIEVE: ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE
Actually, we are in the Ministry of the Son of Man. You see, her own problem is almost like that of Jos. Her problem has lingered for the past three years. How many can recognize her. She was the one that partook of the Holy Communion.
2.                 Do you remember? How many were here then? Shall we give a clap unto the Lord?
3.                 I permitted you today so that you will not be discouraged. Otherwise, I had almost stopped you. Even you Bro Ifeanyi, I wanted you to enjoy this Camp Meeting. Go back to your seats and doubt no more.
4.                 Are you surprised at what is happening? Don’t you know that last year, that is 1997, was our year of release and this year will be our Jubilee? This is Jubilee year. I say, “This is the Jubilee year." How many know this truth, that this year is Jubilee year to all God’s people?
5.                 So, the long awaited year is here at last. We are now in it. Let us watch out. My Sister, I have never seen you rejoicing this way before. Under pressure. She was sweating greatly. How many noticed that? She is from the Church at Isiala-Ngwa.
6.                 Many were watching and some were saying, “Could this be true?” Well, let me hold my peace and keep on watching until we get home and stay one week. 
7.                 We had a case. Where is your brother? He is the one that came to me at Owerri. That is Brother Testimony. Brother Igwe! Here is Testimony? Go and sit down. How many know his Testimony? Come out and share the testimony.
8.                 [A Brother stood up to give the testimony]: Alleluia! It is wonderful.  This is Brother Ogadi. Do not be surprised that you are seeing our Brother Testimony here.  Brother Ogadi here had a problem that made his neck look like that of a pig.
9.                 He had a problem with his liver. His liver was badly damaged and dead in the stomach because it lost its normal function. We never knew what was happening. We had been living with him till April last year. Before then we had taken him round the whole hospital in Imo and Abia states. We went to so many other places but there was nobody who could cure him.
10.            Even in his family, there are three medical doctors but none of them could proffer solution to this disease.  Then Sister Faith and Sister Eche went to many different places but nothing happened. But when it was time for God to work, Brother Celestine came from Nsukka to Sister Faith to share his experiences at the Camp Meeting of last year, 1996.
11.            When Bro Cele came, he narrated everything to Sister Faith. The two of them came here and went back with a letter from Brother (The Son of Man) for baptism. They went to Brother Isaac who later drove them to my house in his car. They did not meet me. They went to the house of Brother Leo and later, they went for the baptism.
12.            Immediately Brother (referring to the Son of Man) came to Owerri, in the house of Brother Isaac, we took Brother Ogadi there and He (The Son of Man) prayed for him. Then on the day we went to Isiala-Ngwa, we went with Ogadi to Isiala-Ngwa. He could not walk, my Brethren.
13.            Tears rolled from my eyes that day. We took Brother Ogadi to the front seat and he sat there in front. The Son of Man opened His mouth in prayers, until He went to where Brother Ogadi was seating.
14.            The Son of Man poured some quantity of Olive oil into His hand until the oil was dripping and went straight to Brother Ogadi poured it all over Brother Ogadi as He was praying, tears were rolling down His eyes. We all chilled.
15.            The Son of Man continued praying and later left Bro Ogadi. We then went home. Before two days, Brother Ogadi started purging and after the purging, Brother Ogadi became whole again till today. Praise the Lord!
16.             Only Believe. All things are possible. Do you know why we do not place these things in front? We do not want this place to become cage of unclean birds. That is why we place in the front that which will scare people away. We are God’s children. We can never go around looking for signs and wonders.
17.            For the Bible said, “These signs shall follow them that believe in me.” So wherever we go, these things follow us. That is why we can never jump up and down, “A great man is coming. A great man of God from America. From Germany with healing.” We can never be there because we know he is not coming with anything.
18.            I want to tell you something. Do you know that the Author of Life is on earth? If we are permitted to go a little that way, I just bet you, one week, this compound will not accommodate people. We know what we will do. Get to Oji-River and be commanding the lame, “Stand up! Stand up! Stand up!”
19.            We will go to another town and do the same. Before you know it, everybody will be running to Onitsha with the report that God has come down in Onitsha, “Go and see.” Every Tom, Dick and Harry will come because of miracles and healings. That is why we were warned strictly to lift up this Sword.
20.            THE MOMENT YOU COUNT YOUR LIFE AS NOTHING AND FOLLOW US, YOU WILL SEE MANY THINGS, BECAUSE I AND MY CHILDREN WHOM MY FATHER HAS GIVEN TO ME, WE ARE FOR SIGNS AND WONDERS.  
21.            He told Nathaniel, “Follow me and you will see greater things ahead.” The things will make you to marvel. When Nathaniel followed, was he disappointed?
22.            Our problem is unbelief. Over-familiarity is very dangerous. It is because we are Igbo people. The moment our friend introduces himself to us, he is worth nothing to us again.
23.            I do not know whether I committed crimes by unfolding the mask. I do not know whether I committed crime by unfolding the mask. The other time, I unfolded a little and closed it again.
24.            But this time around, I have removed the mask, because we have come to the end of the journey. If you have not believed now, you will never believe again.
25.            Because when we shall see Him, how will He look like? We shall be like Him for we shall see Him as He is, not minus, not plus.
26.            I want to talk to you this morning. I have a lot of Messages lined up. How I wish I have all the wherewithal to prolong the Meeting or that I have all it takes to keep all of you here comfortably, may be till about Sunday, but unfortunately, I do not have it.
27.            There are so many things I wanted to inject into you. My aim is to immunize you well well for 1998, so that wind will never blow any of you away. Just go any where you want. Do not fear any Satan. Do not fear anybody. Do not fear anybody at all.
28.            BECAUSE I TOLD YOU THAT I WANT TO KEEP ON TALKING UNTIL I AM SATISFIED THAT YOU ARE ALL FULLY TRANSFORMED AND HAVE BECOME SPIRITS. HOW WILL YOU KNOW? YOU ARE WALKING IN HUMANS FLESH UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS. PEOPLE AROUND WILL MARVEL AND SAY, “SEE THIS MAN.” YOU YOURSELF WILL EVEN DOUBT YOURSELF.
29.            In a twinkling of an eye, we shall all be transformed. HOW DO YOU THINK THE TRANSFORMATION WILL TAKE PLACE? IT IS BY THE POWER OF THE WORD.
30.            THE WORD IS THE SPIRIT. THE WORD IS THE LIFE. Why are we enjoying this Message? The Life was first of all manifested. It is not preaching only. It was accompanied by life. I am preaching life and godliness.
31.            Sister Grace! By grace, you are saved. Thank your God that you are blessed from the beginning. Grace has seen you through. Talk of merit; it is not by your merit. It is just by your name, Grace. IT IS ONLY BY GRACE, LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST.
32.            Do not think that I do not have anything for you. I am trying to relax a little. You see. That is why I fear going beyond preaching realm. You know we have preaching realm. When a preacher crosses the preaching realm, he cannot preach again. He will be staggering about until he settles down.
33.            I thank God for many many things which you do not know about. Anybody that is not in this Camp, Satan cheated the person well well, because it pays to be an eye witness. 
34.            Nobody wants to sleep again. You see why I was warning you yesterday. I said, “Do not ever shake your head.” Rather say, “God help me.” Do not shake your head. Let me show you why you must remain awake. Apart from little kids, everybody should stay awake.

TO YOU IS GIVEN TO UNDERSTAND THE MYSTERIES
Ecclesiastes 9:8; “Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment.KJV. 
2.          If you have listened to the Message, “WHO ARE THE FOOLISH VIRGINS, you will notice one thing in that place: I called them by their names.
3.          Do you know that there is no other Church that values Olive oil apart from this Church? Some carry it for carrying sake. Some do not even know about it at all.
4.          Let me see whether I will find this Olive oil. The Bible said, “Do not allow your head to lack oil. And do not allow your garment to be spotted.”
5.          Exodus 27:20-21: “And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamp to burn always. In the tabernacle of the congregation without the vail, which is before the testimony, … KJV
6.          Oil Olive or Olive Oil. To cause your lamp to burn.  Thus, Olive oil is a very important oil, if it is administered by the approved person. I said that if it is administered by the approved person. What is more, I have told you how it should be retained: Preserve your own. Do not allow it to dry. Let me say bye-bye to you.
7.          Romans Chapter 9:27-29: “Isaiah also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:
8.          For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.
9.          And 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.” KJV.
10.      And Isaiah calls out (solemnly cries aloud) over Israel: Though the number of the sons of Israel be like the sand of the sea, only the remnant (a small part of them) will be saved [from perdition, condemnation, judgment]!
11.      For the Lord will execute His sentence upon the earth [He will conclude and close His account with men completely and without delay], rigorously cutting it short in His justice.
12.      It is as Isaiah predicted, if the Lord of hosts had not left us a seed [from which to propagate descendants], we [Israel] would have fared like Sodom and have been made like Gomorrah. AMP
13.      Did you get what the Bible is saying? Have we identified that “A Seed”? Thus, we can rightly say that if God has not preserved this “A Seed”, there is no way we would have been propagated. We are all the offshoot of that “A Seed”.
14.      Brother Ifeanyi, this one will stumble you. I say, pray hard o! “I just can’t say,” has not vanished completely. If we are not the people of God until that “A Seed” was made manifest, and from the time it was made manifest, all that believed Him, became children of God.
15.      Without Him, you were lost. If God never preserved that Seed, you would have become like Sodom and Gomorrah. I am trying to bring out something.
16.       Romans 11:5 AMP: “So too at the present time there is a remnant (a small believing minority), selected (chosen) by grace (by God's unmerited favour and graciousness).”
17.      Thus, right now, there is what? A remnant (a small believing minority). And you are one of them. Are you in the majority? In the whole world today, we are that small believing minority.  
18.      “So too at the present time there is a remnant (a small believing minority)…”
19.      Remember what God said there. If God had not left us a seed, we would have been like Sodom ad Gomorrah. He went further to say also that though the people of Israel will be like sand, yet only a remnant shall be saved.
20.      And this remnant must be the small believing minority. If we have identified that small believing minority, and we are certain we are in that small believing minority, I think that will be the basis of our rejoicing.
21.      “…selected (chosen) by grace (by God's unmerited favour and graciousness).”
22.      SELECTED, CHOSEN BY GOD’S UNMERITED FAVOUR AND GRACIOUSNESS. Who chose us? Who selected us? Almighty God. Not even one person in this most holy Faith suffered to come into this Faith. You were either in your office or in your house. He met you there. No wonder He said, “I was found of people that never sought me.” Glory be to God.
23.      WE WILL PRINT OUT ALL THESE MESSAGES IN BOOKLET FORMS, TRUSTING GOD THAT ONE DAY, THE ELECTS WILL LAY HANDS ON THEM AND THEN IDENTIFY WITH HIS BRETHREN. I WONDER WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN MY CONDITION IF I HAD MISSED THIS KIND OF FAITH.
24.       Brethren from Jos, it is wonderful. I told you in Jos that I was playing to avoid injuries because a great task still lies ahead.
25.      IT IS NOT EASY TO CONVINCE AN IGBO MAN. HE MAY BELIEVE TODAY, TOMORROW HE WILL DENY IT. MANY OF YOU THAT ARE SHOUTING TODAY, “GOD HAS COME DOWN!” PRAY HARD THAT YOUR TESTIMONY WILL NOT CHANGE TOMORROW.
26.      IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR TESTIMONY TO CHANGE, FOR ANY PROBLEM, CONTACT ME. BUT UNFORTUNATELY, SOME DO NOT HAVE FAITH IN ME. HOW CAN I BE USEFUL TO YOU IF YOU DO NOT HAVE FAITH IN ME? MANY RUN AWAY FROM ME. I WONDER. I am giving you nuggets.
27.      Saint Matthew Chapter 13:10-17: “And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
28.      For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
29.      Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
30.      And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
31.      For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
32.      For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them ; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.” KJV.
33.      Then the disciples came to Him and said, Why do You speak to them in parables? And He replied to them, To you it has been given to know the secrets and mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.
34.      For whoever has [spiritual knowledge], to him will more be given and he will be furnished richly so that he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.” AMP.
35.      They asked Jesus why He was talking to them in parables. He said, “Unto you, sitting down here, I speak to you in plain language, but to those outside, I speak to them in parables. So that seeing, they will see without perceiving. Hearing, they will hear without understanding. Lest at anytime they will understand and repent and their sins will be forgiven.’
36.      The time for playing is over. I am now in strict business. OPERATION RESPECT NO GREY HAIR.
37.      Saint Luke Chapter 8:9-11; And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God:
38.      but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God...”
39.      Jesus told them, “To those outside, I speak to them in parables so that they will remain blind. But to you that are inside, I speak to you in plain language. I show you all things plain.
40.      Why do I talk to them in parables? So that they will never understand me. They would not recognize who I am. I say, they would not recognize who I am.
41.      Because anytime they recognize me, and repent, I will be under strict obligation to save them. They will never know me beyond “My colleague in the office”, “My co-tenant in the yard”, “My townsman.”
42.      Somebody is not getting the Message. They will never know me beyond “My junior brother”, “My senior brother who is leaving at Onitsha, working in the Federal Ministry of Labour.”
43.      Be very careful. To you is given to understand the mysteries, but to them outside, no way. Go out and tell them. Glory be to God. Amen.

WE ARE THE TRUE REPRESENTATIVE OF CHRIST ON EARTH
This is a very wonderful night. It is already morning. It is supernatural that somebody can stay awake all through, yet he is not complaining, because there is fresh anointing. I thank God. I want to talk to you because you are my people.
2.          Saint Mark Chapter 4:11-; “And He said to them, To you has been entrusted the mystery of the kingdom of God [that is, the secret counsels of God which are hidden from the ungodly]; but for those outside [of our circle] …” AMP.
3.           For those outside of our circle. Everything becomes what?
4.          “ … everything becomes a parable,”
5.          What is the reason actually?
6.          In order that they may [indeed] look and look but not see and perceive, and may hear and hear but not grasp and comprehend, lest haply they should turn again, and it [their wilful rejection of the truth] should be forgiven them.”
7.          Verse 11 again. And He said to them, To you has been entrusted the mystery of the kingdom of God [that is, the secret counsels of God which are hidden from the ungodly]; but for those outside [of our circle] everything becomes a parable.”
8.          That is why William Branham said, “But you MUST come into the Church for you to recognize the very Elohim in the Badger skin for He is going to be revealed in the Church.”
9.          He went further and said, “BUT YOU MUST COME IN”. He is hiding Himself in that old badger skin. Outwardly, He is just ordinary human being. But you MUST come in first.
10.      You cannot stay outside and continue in your arguments and see Him. You are hearing all these things, seeing all these things because you are inside of our circle. You are in the place where God’s love can reach you.
11.      How many people recognized Him before? Only those inside that circle. All that were outside, they never recognized Him. That was why they ganged up and killed Him.
12.      I TRIED MY BEST, USING WILLIAM BRANHAM PROPHECIES AND THE HOLY WRITINGS IN THE HOLY BIBLE TO REVEAL MYSELF TO YOU, THINKING THAT SOMEBODY WILL BE WISE ENOUGH TO SAY SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
13.      Saint John Chapter 16:29-30 Read in Igbo. “His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.” KJV
14.       “His disciples said, Ah, now You are speaking plainly to us and not in parables (veiled language and figures of speech)! Now we know that You are acquainted with everything and have no need to be asked questions. Because of this we believe that you [really] came from God.” AMP.
15.      Have we seen reasons to say what they said? You know they saw something and they were convinced beyond human doubts and they said, “Now we are certain. You have now spoken to us in plain language, no longer in types or in figures, putting us into much thinking and now we are certain that you really came from God.”
16.       “His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.” KJV.
17.      How I wish our Sister Naomi John Abba is here. She could read like a man. The joy in her heart is sufficient. If our Brothers have that type of joy, any Brother that is called to read will exhibit that joy. But read sorrowfully. How can you move me now?
18.      You know you have to move me. If you do not move me this moment, expect nothing. You weary me by the way you are reading.
19.      2 Corinthians Chapter 5:19-20; “It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor).
20.      So we are Christ's ambassadors,…
21.      We are what?
22.      Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ's personal representatives] …”
23.      Christ’s what? Personal representatives.  It is not the Pope. Pope is an impersonator. We are the true representative of Christ on earth.
24.      “… We [as Christ's personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God.” AMP.
25.      Lay hold on this divine favour that is being offered to you. God introducing Himself to humanity in a Badger skin. It was God personally in Christ. You see, Jesus was the Badger skin that time. Brother Ojiakor, lay hold on the Badger skin in your day.
26.      Somebody that has such a virtue, where somebody said, “I was moved by faith because much people were around Him. I could not find my way. I just touched His garment and went home.” And He exclaimed, “Virtue went out of me. Who touched me?” Scriptures fulfilling in our eyes.
27.      The crowd was saying; “Many people gathered around you now! The crowd was too much. Why are you saying that somebody touched you?”
28.       He said, “Something departed from my flesh. Who was the man?”
29.      Do you know that in the beginning of the Ministry, the power of the Almighty came so low because of some people’s faith that a woman touched His girdle (belt) and got instant healing? I mean this table.
30.      Because of the crowd, she crawled and crawled and crawled. She said, “God! I am pregnant. Since I cannot find my way to the front, let me touch this table. As long as He is holding this microphone, the power is still there.” She touched it.  Glory be to God.
31.      What am I saying? IT IS UNBELIEVABLE. I KNOW WHY YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS. I STAYED TOO LONG WITH YOU. I STAYED TOO LONG WITH YOU BEFORE MAKING MYSELF KNOWN TO YOU.
32.      I THINK THIS IS ONE OF THE PROBLEMS: “IF YOU HAD REVEALED ALL THESE THINGS TO ME, I WOULD not have doubted. My faith would have grown more than this.” You are a liar!
33.      IF I HAD REVEALED MYSELF IN THE BEGINNING, YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN STUMBLED OUT. THIS IS BECAUSE YOU HAD A PICTURE OF CHRIST. YOUR OWN CHRIST, HOW HE WOULD LOOK LIKE AND HOW HE WILL COME.
34.      THAT IS WHY I GOT YOU ESTABLISHED IN THE WORD, SO THAT FROM THE WORD, YOU CAN PROVE FOR YOURSELF WHAT THE WORD SAID CONCERNING HIS SECOND COMING. I, FIRST OF ALL, TOOK TIME TO ESPOUSE ALL OF YOU TO THE WORD. 
35.      IT IS NOT EASY TO BELIEVE O! BUT WE MUST BELIEVE. I SAID, WE MUST. WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, YOU ARE ALREADY ROPED IN, BECAUSE MY FATHER WHO BROUGHT YOU TO ME, IS MIGHTIER THAN THE DEVIL. HE IS MIGHTIER THAN ANY HUMAN BEING. NOTHING CAN SNATCH YOU FROM HIS HANDS.
36.      MY FATHER WHO BROUGHT YOU HERE CAN NEVER ALLOW YOU TO STRAY AWAY. THE ONLY PERSON THAT WILL PERISH MUST BE THE SON OF PERDITION, THE DAUGHTER OF PERDITION, THAT THE SCRIPTURE MIGHT COME TO PASS. TALK OF YOU HUMBLE ONES, NA LIE! NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO YOU.
37.      THIS IS THE WILL OF MY FATHER THAT ALL HE HAS GIVEN TO ME, I WILL PRESERVE THEM TILL THE END. I WILL GIVE THEM ETERNAL LIFE AND THEY WILL NEVER PERISH FOREVER.
38.      THIS IS THE WILL OF MY FATHER. SO THAT YOU THAT ARE HERE TODAY, YOU ARE HERE FOREVER. YOU ARE HERE FOREVER, BECAUSE HIS HAND IS NOT TOO SHORT THAT HE CANNOT REACH YOU.
39.      ONLY KEEP ON BELIEVING, DOUBTING NOTHING. ANYTHING THAT IS NOT CLEAR TO YOU, FEEL FREE AND COME TO ME AND JUST SAY, “MY BROTHER, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS O!”
40.      BUT, FIRST OF ALL REMEMBER THAT I TOLD YOU THAT YOU MUST NOT UNDERSTAND BEFORE YOU CONTINUE, FOR NO MAN CAN UNDERSTAND GOD EXCEPT GOD.
41.      Remember a time came when God commanded His Prophet to eat human faeces. He commanded Prophet Jeremiah, to run round the city naked. He commanded another Hosea to marry a popular harlot. It is God.
42.      He commanded another Prophet to tell a young man to slap Him. The young man said no, that he cannot slap a man of God who did not do anything to him.
43.      He said, “My friend! Slap me. Thus saith the Lord.” The young man said, “I will not try it.” And He said, “Because you have refused, lion must devour you.”
44.      Lion came out and devoured him and fear gripped everybody. He turned to another young man and said, “Slap me, thus saith the Lord.” The young man rolled up the sleeves of his shirt and landed the Prophet a thunderous slap. Then the Lord spared him.
45.      God gave us warning that nobody should mould any graven image in any form, in the semblance of a human being, or four-footed animal or birds. He said, “Do not try it.”  
46.      But He commanded Moses to mould a very big cherubim; two of them, placed them in the ark, with an instruction that their wings will overlap.
47.      If you were there and you saw Moses moulding the thing, what will you say? Must you understand God before you follow Him? We follow God by faith.
48.      LET ME TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENS TO GOD. THE MOMENT YOU APPLY YOUR FAITH AND FOLLOW; AS YOU FOLLOW, THE ROAD BECOMES CLEARER.
49.      AS YOU KEEP ON FOLLOWING, THE ROAD CONTINUES TO BE CLEARER AND CLEARER AND CLEARER. AND SURELY, YOU MUST GET TO THE END.
50.      There were a lot of things you could not understand in the beginning, but today, our eyes of understanding have opened and those things have become clear to us. I thank God.
51.      Thus, we can rightly say that THIS MAN (the Vindicated Apostle, the Son of Man) has no need that any man should teach Him. We have seen a lot of things around Him in His Ministry, and we are now sure that THIS MAN actually came from God. Amen.

FIX YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL (1)
I want to say few things to you. I am taking my text from where I am going to read.
2.          Hosea Chapter 6:1-3 COME AND let us return to the Lord, for He has torn so that He may heal us; He has stricken so that He may bind us up.
3.          After 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. Yes, let us know (recognize, be acquainted with, and understand) Him;
4.          let us be zealous to know the Lord [to appreciate, give heed to, and cherish Him]. His going forth is prepared and certain as the dawn, and He will come to us as the [heavy] rain, as the latter rain that waters the earth.” AMP
5.          Come let us rejoice unto the Lord. After two days He will revive us. On the third day, we shall live in His Presence forever.
6.          When God dispersed the children of Israel for the last time, He programmed them that they will remain in captivity for two days. And after two days, they will come back to their homeland.
7.          And on the third day, they will be revived. The dry bones must live again. The topic for this year’s Message is FIX YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL. FIX YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL.
8.          The Message this year is not a lengthy Message, but my salutation to you will be a lengthy one. I have already given you all in the Message, THE BEGINNING AND ENDING OF GENTILE DISPENSATION. I told you how Gentile period started. I told you how it is going to wind up.
9.          The first scattering of the people of Israel, and that was the first captivity. It was Egyptian captivity. It lasted for 430 years, because God gave them time. When the time was accomplished, they were restored to their homeland.
10.      A little while again, they transgressed. They went to Babylonian captivity. God programmed them their, 70 years. When the 70 years were over, God restored them to their homeland.
11.      The third captivity is the Roman captivity. And that is the one we are still in till today, because Rome is still controlling the world.
12.      How many know that Rome is still in power? Rome is still in power till today. You do not know who is sitting on Caesar’s seat? Somebody is sitting on Caesar’s seat.
13.      Rome is no longer under the rule of Caesars. A religious Caesar is on the seat. And you know him. The head of the Roman Catholic world is sitting on Caesar’s seat.
14.      We really thank God. This last captivity, the Lord scattered His people all over the earth. And from the Prophet Hosea, he told us how long they will stay. Until after two years. 
15.      Not even years, but days. He said two days. After two days, the Lord will revive us. We shall be a sovereign nation, after two days. After two days, the third day, we shall live in His presence.
16.      So, we are heading towards the year 2000. A day in the sight of God is one thousand years. Even if Israel will become a nation, settled in their own homeland after two days; Remember God is not using Roman calendar. God is using Jewish calendar.
17.      What hour are we living in? FIX YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL. If from our calendar, Israel is now ready for Jubilee in 1998, to mark their 50years that Israel became a nation; May 14, 1948, United Nations granted them authority to go and become a nation. Amen
18.      1997 was 49years. According to Leviticus Chapter 25, it is their year of release. 50th year is Jubilee year. And Israel already can never celebrate Jubilee without their Messiah. Because when Israel shall be a nation, God must be God over them.
19.      They would not practice democracy, but Theocracy because it is that time that their eyes will open. Somebody read verse 3 of Hosea 6: Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning;” His going forth to meet His people is prepared as the morning. “And he shall come unto us as the rain,”
20.      He shall. Future tense. He shall. When we heard the prophecy, “I AM HAVING ONE FOOT HERE. THE OTHER FOOT, THERE. MAKE HASTE, TIME IS AGAINST YOU. I AM ON MY WAY. I AM ON MY WAY ALREADY. I HAVE OVER-STAYED HERE.” We thought He was playing.
21.      THE SAME WAY THE WHOLE THING WILL HAPPEN LIKE DRAMA. THE WHOLE PROGRAMME WILL BE OVER. JUST LIKE FILM, PEOPLE WILL WAKE UP ONE MORNING TO MEET THE WRATH OF GOD.
22.      WAKE UP FROM THE BED JUST TO MEET GOD’S WRATH BECAUSE OF YOUR SHEER CARELESSNESS. BUT YOU DO NOT NEED TO PANIC BECAUSE HE TOLD LOT THE DAY HE MUST ESCAPE. ARE YOU GETTING WHAT I AM SAYING?
23.      HE TOLD NOAH THE DAY HE SHOULD ENTER THE ARK. AND HE TOLD REHAB. WILL HE HIDE IT FROM YOU SEEING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BRING YOUR FAMILY UNDER CONTROL?
24.      YOU HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CAUSE YOUR FAMILY TO OBEY GOD. WHY SHOULD GOD HIDE THE DATE FROM YOU? THE DAY HE ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN, WAS IT A SURPRISE TO HIS DISCIPLES?
25.      Glory be to God. Can I go to Jos without telling you? Can I go to Aba without telling you? I think the matter is becoming clearer now. I said, “I am on my way.” May be you will use my birthday to send me off. May be I have spent 40 years in the Gentile world. I said, “May be.”
26.      I said, “May be I have stayed 40 years hiding in Africa, in the Wilderness as ordinary shepherd.” I do not know whether you are getting the Message. May be I will go back.  May be. Because the Prophet said, “The same that was there in the East in the beginning, must appear in the West in the end time.”
27.      He said, “The same also shall reveal Himself there for the last time.” Reincarnation; Myth or Reality? Why then are you wondering?
28.      Bro Ifeanyi, I hope I am in order. Do you know your problem? You can hardly forgive yourself. Instead of paying attention to what I am saying, your mind is ruminating on your experience. By the time you finish it and come back to this place, we have left you behind.
29.      May be he shared false testimony here that God has saved him in this Camp Meeting. That he is going home happy. Amen.

FIX YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL (2)
Exodus Chapter 19: 10-11: “And the Lord said to Moses, Go and sanctify the people [set them apart for God] today and tomorrow, and let them wash their clothes And be ready by the third day, for the third day the Lord will come down upon Mount Sinai [in the cloud] in the sight of all the people.”
2.          Verse 16; “The third morning there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast, so that all the people in the camp trembled.” AMP
3.          You see, the Lord fulfilled His Word, using two days, cleansing the people. On the third day, the Lord appeared, revealed Himself to His people with mighty thunders and trumpets and the land quaked.
4.          I am talking to you hoping that you will get the Message, but it is flying. I said, FIX YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL.
5.          From 14th May, 1948 to 14th May, 1998 is 50years. Will He be in the Gentiles and there at the same time? If He will attend that Jubilee celebration, what hour are we? If He must attend this ceremony, what hour are we living in? FIX YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL.
6.          Granted they will use Roman calendar. And this year is 1998. And every two thousand years, from history, there is always a great event. What great event is the world expecting?
7.          They call it destruction of the world. World war. That was why there was one false prophet that prophesied some years ago that the world was about to be destroyed.
8.          People started panicking. Some that do not go to Church started going to Church. And here I told you that nothing will take place. I said nothing will take place.
9.          Another false prophet rose up in Jos and prophesied in the Church there. Put Brethren in bondage. It came to me and I wrote back: “Do not fast and pray. Do not panic. Nothing will happen. I am here.”
10.      It is just like somebody waking up tomorrow morning, saying, “Brother! Translation has occurred.” Do not take him seriously. I am here. Any day you look around and you do not see me, weep. This is because I am sent to come and bring you home. If I go without you, weep.
11.      IF HE CAME TO TAKE HIS BRIDE HOME AND HE CAME AND LEAVES THE SCENE AND YOU ARE STILL HERE, YOU ARE NOT IN THE BRIDE. I AM SENT TO COME AND GATHER THE JEWELS HOME. FIX YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL. MANY MANY THINGS WILL HAPPEN THIS YEAR. IT IS FULL OF SURPRISES.
12.      LET ME JUST SHOW YOU ONE PICTURE. PRICES OF FOOD ITEMS WILL STABILIZE. INFLATION RATE WILL BE GRADUALLY REDUCED. INFLATION WILL GRADUALLY COME DOWN A LITTLE. SO THERE IS GOING TO BE A LITTLE EASE OF LIFE.  BUT MONEY WILL BE VERY HARD TO COME BY.  
13.      BUT NIGERIA IS GOING TO EXPECT THE HIGHEST POLITICAL CRISIS. MANY MANY THINGS WILL HAPPEN. ASO ROCK MUST SHAKE. IF THE HEAD OF STATE FAILS TO TIGHTEN SECURITY MEASURES, BRETHREN, THREE REPUBLICS WILL EMERGE.
14.      GET ME RIGHT. IF THE HEAD OF STATE FAILS TO TIGHTEN UP SECURITY MEASURES, THREE REPUBLICS MUST EMERGE, BECAUSE THERE IS WIDE SPREAD OF DISLOYALTY IN THE ARMY.
15.      TALK OF CRIME RATE, IT WILL BE REDUCED IN 1998 TO THE BAREST MINIMUM, GIVING US FALSE HOPE. I WILL CALL IT FALSE PEACE. CALL IT UNEASY CALM.
16.      THE ECONOMY WILL BE ON A STANDSTILL. REAL STANDSTILL. IN THE RELIGIOUS CIRCLE, THERE IS GOING TO BE A LOT OF REFORMS. A LOT OF REFORMS. GOVERNMENT IS GOING TO COME UP WITH A LOT OF LAWS REGULATING RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES THIS YEAR, BECAUSE OF OTOKOTO INCIDENCE BECAUSE IT HAS ATTRACTED THE ATTENTION OF THE HEAD OF STATE AND THE POWERS THAT BE IN NIGERIA.
17.      We thank God for what He is doing in this Church. You know I am a Man. I speak as a Man. Get me the other way. My Message is very short.
18.      FIX YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL. SOMETHING IS ON THE WAY. I CAN SEE THAT THING AFAR OFF. IT IS COMING LIKE A SORT OF TIME BOMB. BUT IT IS NOT TIME BOMB. THE THING HAS BEEN ON ITS WAY ALL THIS WHILE. AND IT MAY TOUCH THIS EARTH SOON.  
19.      YOU KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT. THE MOMENT IT TOUCHES THIS EARTH; IT IS ALL OVER. I CAN SEE THE THING AFAR OFF, COMING WITH A GREAT SPEED.
20.      SOMETHING WILL DISTURB FAMILIES. IT IS COMING BEHIND THAT TIME BOMB. SICKNESS WILL DISTURB FAMILIES TOO MUCH. STRANGE SICKNESSES WILL EMERGE—STRANGE DISEASES THAT WILL DEFY MEDICAL SOLUTION. THERE IS NO DRUG TO CHECK IT. INFANTS WILL DIE THIS YEAR IN A LARGE SCALE. NOTE IT. I SAY, NOTE IT.
21.      LET ME GO BACK AGAIN. THE ONLY PERSON THAT WILL SURVIVE THIS YEAR IS A CHILD OF GOD. GOD HAS DECIDED THAT THIS YEAR, HE WILL PARADE HIS WIFE BEFORE PRINCES AND PRINCESSES.
22.      I AM SAYING THAT AHASUERUS MUST PARADE VASHTI THIS YEAR. I HOPE VASHTI WILL NOT SAY NO. I HOPE VASHTI MUST HAVE LEARNT HER LESSONS.
23.      I am certain that when He shall come to inspect the fig, we shall gather baskets of fruits. He would not cut it down. Rather He will rejoice because I have done a great work amongst you. I thank Almighty God who gave me the wisdom to remove language barrier. It has helped me a lot.
24.      If I had removed it all this while, we would have left this place. I am happy for the work. May God bless the Five Fold Ministry.
25.      Saint Luke Chapter 13:31-35, “The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.
26.      And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.
27.      Nevertheless I must walk today, and tomorrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.
28.      O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!
29.      Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” KJV.
30.      I hope someone is getting the Message. I am talking to you directly. I am talking to you and you know the source.
31.      FIX YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL. BE SOBER. DO NOT ALLOW ANYTHING TO UPSET YOU. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR HEAD TO DRY. ALLOW THE OIL TO FLOW ALWAYS. NO MATTER YOUR POSITION IN THE SOCIETY, PLACE GOD FIRST, OTHERWISE, YOU WILL SAY, “HAD I KNOWN.”
32.      IF YOU ARE A MINISTER, THIS IS THE TIME TO FULFIL YOUR MINISTRY OR GET READY TO SAY, HAD I KNOWN. IN YOUR DAILY SCHEDULE, PLACE GOD FIRST; ANY OTHER THING COULD BE SECOND. HE THAT HATES HIMSELF IS A WICKED MAN AND WHOSOEVER HATES GOD, HATES HIMSELF. WHOEVER HATES HIS CALLING HATES HIMSELF.
33.      THIS IS BECAUSE YOUR CALLING IS YOUR SALVATION. HOW MANY KNOWS THAT TO BE TRUTH? YOUR CALLING IS YOUR SALVATION. IMMEDIATELY THE MAN MAKES SHIPWRECK, WHAT HAPPENS? THE SHIP CAPSIZES.
34.      PHILETUS! HYMENAEUS! ALEXANDER! THE SAME WAY. EVEN ALEXANDER THE COPPERSMITH. EVEN DIOTREPHES. WHAT OF JUDAS? BE VERY VERY SERIOUS WITH YOUR CALLING. MEN AND WOMEN.  
35.      HARDSHIP OR NO HARDSHIP. WE CANNOT EXPERIENCE HARDSHIP MORE THAN WE HAVE EXPERIENCED BEFORE. NO MATTER THE SITUATION, WE WILL NEVER BE THE WORST HIT, BECAUSE OUR GOD IS BY OUR SIDE. HE WILL NEVER ALLOW US TO GO ABOUT BEGGING BREAD. SO, TRUST AND OBEY.
36.      After two days, we shall be revived. The third day we shall be in his presence.
37.      2 Peter 3:8-14. “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
38.      The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
39.      But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
40.      Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
41.      Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
42.      Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
43.      Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.” KJV.
44.      “Nevertheless, do not let this one fact escape you, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day.
45.      The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people's conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance.
46.      But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will vanish (pass away) with a thunderous crash, and the [material] elements [of the universe] will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and the works that are upon it will be burned up.
47.      Since all these things are thus in the process of being dissolved, what kind of person ought [each of] you to be [in the meanwhile] in consecrated and holy behavior and devout and godly qualities,
48.      While you wait and earnestly long for (expect and hasten) the coming of the day of God by reason of which the flaming heavens will be dissolved, and the [material] elements [of the universe] will flare and melt with fire?
49.      But we look for new heavens and a new earth according to His promise, in which righteousness (uprightness, freedom from sin, and right standing with God) is to abide.
50.      So, beloved, since you are expecting these things, be eager to be found by Him [at His coming] without spot or blemish and at peace [in serene confidence, free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts].” AMP.

51.      On this note, I say remain in your sanctified estate, remain blessed in Him eternally. Selah.
