God Has Counted Me worthy Putting Me into this Ministry

 Preached on 13th august 2000 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE ROCK OF AGES” “Truth has no substitute” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

DESPISE NOT THE DAY OF SMALL THINGS PG. 3 


While you are in this Faith, rejoicing in Him exceedingly.  Do you know how many angels that voted for you? Salvation is by Election because many are called but few are chosen. If everybody will be saved, then there is no need for Election, because many are called but few are chosen; for that reason, Election is necessary.
Thus, the hosts of Heaven gathered to cast votes for those that will represent each town and village, and eventually you were chosen.
-Son of Man
AS WE WAIT AT THE GATE VOL. 2, PAGE 9, VERSE 4-5

1
THERE IS NO SALVATION FOR MANKIND WITHOUT ME
Is there salvation for the most miserable child of God? The answer is yes. There is salvation for the most miserable child of God. Whether you are the most miserable or not, the truth is that you are a child of God.
2.                 These things should make an impact in somebody. Some of you that want people to behave like you, you may be the wisest child of God, but allow me to be the most foolish.
3.                 Yes, everything is available in the house of a king! We have white, we have black. We have clean water, equally we have dirty water but they are all in the Sanctuary; for the Sanctuary makes them holy.
4.                 Every item in the Sanctuary is holy. Why? The Sanctuary had already sanctified it.
5.                 In the olden days, if you want to purify anything, just bring it into the Sanctuary, it becomes holy. No matter how impure that water is, bring it into the Sanctuary, it will turn to drinkable water.
6.                 Hence, instead of me to get lost; let me be the most useless child of God. Let me be called a child of God, not a lawmaker. Nobody wants to answer a useless child of God in this Church, everybody wants to be wise.
7.                 No wonder the Bible said that they are foolish even in their wise conceit—racking sense that will lead you into Hellfire. Can human sense lead you to Heaven? You cannot use human sense and acquire eternal life. I am a useless child of God, even number one!
8.                 All our friends that are in this Church, please, this is not the gathering that you have been seeing in the world. THIS IS A FAMILY MEETING and wherever there is peace of God, everybody is at liberty. Nobody is in bondage in this Faith. We have equal say in this most holy Faith.
9.                 Thus, we do not believe in starchy atmosphere. If you are a bonafide member of the Family, you have a say in that Family. However, if you are a stranger, you will be an observer. You will be watching and watching. In this holy Sanctuary, in this Church, in this most holy Faith, we do not watch, for we are not watching cinema. This way that you call the way of foolishness is the way we worship God.
10.            “…When all of His Family…”
11.            When all of His what? Family. So, God has a Family! Both Jews and Gentiles shall be united where?
12.            Let me tell you something; do not carry the Jews and the Gentiles far. Without the Church, there is nothing that will unite Nigeria. That Nigeria is answering one nation where there is no unity is a sure sign that there is no Church. Nigeria is a religious nation but there is no Church in Nigeria.
13.            If there is a Church at all in Nigeria, they worship on Sunday; both the Hausa, the Yoruba, the Fulani, whatever you are, when you come into that place (Church/fellowship/faith) you become one blood, one body, everything one! Yoruba, Hausa and Igbo vanish. Then, you will know that you have a brother outside your own hamlet—that there is a brother outside my own kindred.
14.            Watch, God has purposed His Church as the only meeting point where He can unite His Family. It is no surprise by saying that as many as belong to my Family, they should be in this Sanctuary to enable us thank God for taking us to the glorious end.
15.            Because there is no way I could have succeeded in this ministry alone without you. Thus, my success is your success. The same way My joy is your joy. If I had made a shipwreck, you would have made a shipwreck too.
16.            Hence, we thank God Who has enabled us to find favour in His sight to the point of being added into His Church (Family). To show you that it is God that has been doing everything, in spite of all oppositions, disagreements and blackmail, even at times from among us, I have not been discouraged for one day. I have never relented in preaching. I go as far as meeting you in your private closest only to make sure that you are saved.
17.            However, it is unfortunate that at times some of you misunderstand it. Some even call it weakness on my side. To such people I say, you had better have a change of mind before it will be too late. Because once I come down from this pulpit, I do not know whether there will be remedy for anything like that again.
18.            I am coming down from the pulpit this afternoon. That does not mean that you will not hear Me from time to time. I want to have a little pleasure in the flesh. Let me have a little rest, let me welcome you in my house. Let me watch you from a distance within these few days.
19.            You know, it is going to be a sweet ride, and it is already on. Those that have been with Me for some time now, they know that it is on. Brother Chizoba, there is no way you can come around my door without hearing something. It is on already and I am relieved.
20.            Look at me very well, if you like take my photograph. I am in the kitchen, I am in the centre of the worship, if you like it believe, if you do not like, do not believe!
21.            There is no salvation for mankind without me. If you like, believe, if you like, do not believe. I cannot because of too many impersonators shun to declare myself to my people. I believe you know more than that. Do not allow the weakness of the flesh to carry you over. I will still talk to you as I continue.
22.            You know, you are all more important to me than the visitors I have in my house. I will entertain them by and by; if they feel offended, they can go. I have no apology. If they really love Me, they will trace Me to this place (Fellowship/Sanctuary/Jerusalem). This is my consolation.
23.            I have never relented from the day the Lord commissioned Me. I have been talking to you, visiting you from place to place, showing you deep things about the Kingdom of Heaven, and even revealing to you the mystery of your existence; things you have never known before, things that were hidden even from your forefathers, things that were hidden even from the Seven Messengers of the Seven Dispensations, these things I have made known unto you.
24.            There is no preacher that has appeared on the scene with more abundant revelation than the one you are having in your midst. I am saying it confidently because, all that God preached as were recorded in the Bible, they bear eloquent testimony. I am not speaking falsely.
25.            There is no preacher we have heard of that we cannot lay hand on his materials in the market. Even the people that compiled the holy Bible that you are using, many of them were Trinitarians; they do not know all these things.
26.            THAT IS WHY IF YOU READ THEIR BIBLE COMMENTARIES, YOU ARE GOING TO HELL. THEIR BIBLE COMMENTARIES WILL TELL YOU WHAT THEY BELIEVE. Because it was their faith that they put down, not the faith of Christ.  
27.            Our brother was talking to Me the other day, he said, “You know, we were in the Pentecostals and the way we were ministering that period was by the use of our Bible concordance. Before we minister, we go to Bible dictionary or concordance, gather scriptures and speak the same thing. But I was surprised on the day you handled the message on Tithe, from morning till evening, scriptures were inexhaustible. I went home, brought out my Bible bag, I could not see what I recorded there, and I concluded that this must be God and God alone!”
28.            YES, YOUR CONCORDANCE IS USELESS TO YOU. BELIEVE IT IF YOU HAVE THE HEART, I AM BIBLE CONCORDANCE MYSELF. I am not saying it to praise myself.
29.            There was a day we went to Enugu Church, one of our friends, a very rich man there, after having encounter with Me and I thrilled him, he exclaimed, “Indeed, this man is really Bible concordance. If you ask him one question, he will use twenty scriptures to answer it.”
30.            One other man from Igbariam said, “In fact, I have to confess, this man, the way he turns the Bible, he turns it as if he is the author of the Bible.”
31.            There was this man, a lawyer, if I am speaking falsely, Bishop Umezurike is here to testify and I thank God that I went with witnesses that day.
32.            There was one that came, one professor like that, professor Nwadiaku, he said that he has been going from place to place preaching and collecting money like that. After having an encounter with Me, he said, “Since my twenty two years in the pulpit, nobody has ever made me a pagan but this man. That is why Job said that with education, nobody can know God. You cannot know God by much education; instead much education will make you an unbeliever.  
33.            I do not think I can see your face and destroy you. How do you think I can see your face and you call me brother, I say that I do not know you? My heart will melt.
34.            Let me tell you one thing. If I am walking along the street, even if you have committed the worst crime against me, and you rush forward to embrace me, you see me dodge, no, my conscience will slap me. After all, I know more than that.
35.            I am saying that you have to be courageous because I am going to say few things that will make you panic a little. However, I am saying these things for you to at least adjust.
36.            You know the Bible has it that Abraham was a friend of God. You must come to a point where you can say, “Whatever you want to preach, I do not care, I know that I am God’s friend!” You must come to that revelation.
37.             You must come to this revelation: “I have Him as my friend. If you like, preach, if you do not like, do not preach, all I know is that I am secured, unless brother is no longer there. Once He is there, no problem. I know I will provoke Him but I still know how to beg Him.”
38.            There is no woman that does not know how to please her husband. If you do not know how to please your husband, something is wrong with that marriage.
39.            Look at what happened in Acts of the Apostles chapter 26 verses 22-23. “Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come: That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles” KJV.
40.            In spite of all the troubles, oppositions, and discouragements I have continued teaching till this day, listening to no other thing but the power of Christ to save by His Grace. That once you believe and obey He that the Father has sealed and sent, it justifies you on those things which you could not be justified under the Laws of Moses. And as long as you believe in Him, depend on Him to be your saviour; surely, He is going to save you.
41.            Once there is doubt in your mind—because a double-minded fellow obtaineth nothing in return—you can never receive anything from God. I will be shocked if I will be parted and noticed some people who are here limping between two opinions. If I see you limping between two opinions, that is, you do not know whether this could be true or false, I will liken you to no other person but Brother Nathaniel from Isiala-Ngwa.
42.            Up till this moment I do not know what he believes, yet he is a deacon in that Church. If He wants to play with you, He can play you into Catholic and then get you out of the way. If He sees you limping between two opinions, the only way He can take you there is by giving you a celebrated office.
43.            When He gives you a celebrated office, you will become comfortable, you will feel that you are in the message, but do one thing, you will know that you are not in the message. He will be comforting you so that you will see the end, so that you will say, “Had I Known”.
44.            If there is anybody in this most holy Faith that is still limping between two opinions, you do not know whether what you are hearing is true or false, you do not know whether what is said in this Church is scriptural or not, I wish you goodluck! Go ahead searching the scriptures to know when the Messiah will come and allow Simon to continue in fellowship with Him in the temple.
45.            You know whosoever that is searching the scriptures is waiting for the Christ that will be revealed. However, Simon was not searching scriptures, Simon by faith went into the temple, and there they were having fellowship.
46.            However, the rest were searching the scriptures: “We want to see it for it is said that when the Messiah will come, all eyes will see Him, He will come like lightening.”
47.            Yes, the letter killeth. We are not ministers of the letters but ministers of the Spirit (the Word). If you want to be ministers of the letters, go to End-time Message.
48.            Let me tell you one thing in this faith, a young man who has been our friend came to my house, and we were there preaching our Gospel in our own way. YOU KNOW, YOUR ACTION EXPRESSES YOUR FAITH.
49.            We were expressing our faith in my parlour, the man came with Bible in his hand, before we knew it, our faith influenced him. He started indicting us, he said, “Look at the way you are receiving me! I have come here twice, and I used okada coming here and going. The way you are receiving me is not good! The other day you saw me at the corridor, this time I have come inside the parlour, you did not ask me to sit down. And look at how you are enjoying yourself with food and wine; if I drink it with you will I die?”
50.            Brother Paul, you were there! We were many. You see, we have converted this man, because he saw us sitting joyfully, he has never seen such a joyful gathering before. We had better stop deceiving ourselves.
51.            Peter was there, others were around the fire because the weather was too cold. Peter was there around the fire but not because of the weather. Did you get the message?
52.            When Jesus Christ was arrested by His enemies, Peter followed. When the beating changed, Peter wanted to draw back. Some ladies were around the fire because the weather was cold. Peter joined them around the fire, not because of the weather but he was hiding himself for fear of death.
53.            Somebody looked at him and said, “My friend, you behave like these people, you are one of the disciples”. He said no; the man went further, “Even your character here has betrayed you.”
54.            Some were spreading their hands around the fire but Peter was putting his hands on the cheek watching. I am saying that your character shows who you are. Action speaks louder than the voice.
55.            Now, I hope we continue with this message even though I made a little diversion; to show you how glorious it is when you are feeding from an Approved Fountain, who collected His Message from no other source but from the Father.
56.            In our midst is the courageous man of God, who is never moved and nothing moves Him, even gossip does not move Him. He is mindful of His duty, He does not look at man, He fixes His eyes on the Father. He does not care who comes in or who goes out.
57.            If I am afraid of people I wouldn’t have carried it to this extent especially when I handled the message, “The Beginning And Ending Of Gentile Dispensation”.
58.            Tongues were wagging up and down, many people started claiming to be holier than they were. People we knew from the very beginning, they wanted to show us that they were righteous. However, I thank God that today we have won the battle. People that started with us, they are now behind us. WE DO NOT JOIN YOU, YOU ARE TO JOIN US! If you do not want to join us, go to Hell! One step outside this faith, you find yourself in the congregation of the dead.
59.            Second Corinthians chapter 3 verses 14-17: “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
60.            To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ” KJV.
61.            There are people that are not pastorable. Not everybody in your Church is pastorable and you can cut your neck because of one that is not pastorable. Even in the Family, you may be unlucky to have a child that is uncontrollable; all you have to do is to bear with him. That is all. Talking about him means exposing your weakness, and you know that you are not weak, but you have done your best.
62.            What you will do is to endure the trouble. I hope I am not a stinking odor. Because if I am a stinking odor and you are my guest, whatever I serve here will be stinking, and it then means you will go home hungry. AND TODAY I AM SAYING THAT SALVATION IS BEING MADE COMPLETE.
63.            We are going away. Where I am going, if you get there, you will not come back. But we are ready in one way or the other.
64.            Isiala-Ngwa Church, you know about this matter, even if others do not know, you know it. Beggars are everywhere. Don’t you know that? But the Son of Man is not a beggar.
65.            Thus, some people are bound to find fault with us, and they are bound to say one thing or the other but those things do not discourage Me at all. Whatever you want to say, go ahead and say it! You want to criticize me or call me all manner of names, call this faith the faith of Devil, you are right!
66.            THE HIGHEST THING YOU CAN DO IS TO PUBLISH A BOOK AND CALL ME DEVIL. Somebody had already called me “Son of Perdition”. Another one called me Satan incarnate. You can call me Chief of the Devils. And in all I openeth not my mouth.
67.            You know, there is virtue. I got a testimony from Sister Charity Njoku that her husband has been frequenting social welfare course where he and the man sat him down and spoke to him.
68.            He said, “My friend, you are not a good man at all! You said you go to Church and yet you can tell lies to your brother. You better go now to your brother and apologize for telling lies. And I want to tell you that I have not seen a man like that all my life. I have never  seen a man somebody accused with such series of accusations even in his face and the man remained calm. You better go and tender unreserved apology.”
69.             You see, our sister went there and then the man started telling her saying, “Your husband is a mad man, we have seen all these things, we have seen that there is no love in that marriage, but there is nothing we can do. You keep on enduring it, but I am sure that you are living in trouble.” Which is correct.
70.            I saw those things they were doing as childishness. I know more than that. My composure did not change, my voice did not change, my countenance remained ever friendly. I turned to my brethren that came with me, they were ever joyful.
71.            What is more, the people confessed that truly they have seen children of God indeed. Those from Assemblies of God came embracing us, begging us to forgive, pleading with us. How can we forgive, we know more than that. If we are children of God, we are in a better position to talk to you in whatever case.
72.            Note it, I can never have a meeting point with you unless you are a child of God. If you are a child of God, you cannot even discuss with a heathen, because you do not know where to start.
73.            His desire is not your desire. In short, at times when you look at him, you become dumb. Any statement he makes will be odd. You will be looking at him as if he is mad. If we show you the extent God has brought you, but if you are still having dealings with heathens like that, put a question mark! Amen.

WHEN GOD CALLS A MAN, HE BACKS HIM UP
Our brother, feel free! The best thing you would have done is to come with tape recorder. You had better come with a tape recorder or a video recorder so that you can video me very well.
2.                 Then record everything I have been saying in the tape so that your mother would not say you made a mistake. When you get home you give her the tape (s).
3.                 What you are hearing in this Church is not enough, by the time you get home, you will forget some of them. Because you are not here because you want to worship God, you and your brother Onuchi, you are sent to come and hear what we are saying, whether we are speaking against your mother and her daughter that are outside.
4.                 Who is your mother? Has she any role to play in this Church? If one person leaves the market, will anybody know? Thus, you are on your way to Hellfire for allowing a heathen to use you. You are heading to Hell. It is a matter of few things, you will be mumbling because I never possessed you for one day, and it will be difficult for me to possess you in this crucial hour, because you have remained my enemy from the beginning till now.
5.                 Keep on hearing me, keep on watching me very well. Take my photograph! Give him one copy, it will help him. If the stomach is afraid, will it be in the front?
6.                 Many of you that met this Gospel along the way, go and enquire, there was a time we were not up to twenty, and the entire Nigeria came together against Me. When they came to the Church at Nkpor, they said that they came for Odoemena alone. They excluded everybody.
7.                 It was a battle between Odoemena and the entire world, and God gave Me victory over the world. Till today I am still on the scene, no shaking! I have not replied to a mad statement, how do you think I will give heed to a woman’s nonsense?
8.                 I mean, people that said that they are men and they worth something, I have not deemed it fit even to reply to their comments, how much more somebody that is forgotten; I do not even include women while counting members of the Church.
9.                 If I want to take census of this Church, women are not included. You know that! Hence, I extended mercy to you from somewhere, when you remain there.
10.            Yes, you are just coming in from somewhere. Somebody gave you a position in Me, without him, no way! If he had not done it, no way! Every married man that is a child of God knows very well that it is not easy to save a woman.
11.            If a woman is allowed to work out her righteousness, where will she start? In the kitchen! They are little in reasoning but do not blame them, if you know that which they eat, give them for they are little children. That is why Brother Goddy said that they are murmuring. It is their nature. Keep on murmuring, “Brother dey down”.
12.            Keep on murmuring, but do not rebel, do not blaspheme. If you blaspheme, you place yourself in danger of being called to question. You must be prepared to tell the world why you blasphemed.
13.            Because if you say that this faith is Devilish or I came from the Devil, you must be prepared to convince God that I came from Devil, and that this message is from the Devil. You must!
14.            If he, the Devil has not come down with the Bible in his hand and has taught people strange things I have not heard before to the point that they have conquered children of God; Devil’s people have conquered children of God, it then means that Satan is in Heaven and you do not know.
15.            Do you know what I am saying? One man came to the Church with police to arrest me from Ichi, and I said, “Sir, introduce yourself, let me know you”. He flared up. Before he knew it, I converted the police officer to my side. The police officer was saying, “Yes, it is scripture!” Then the man was astonished, I gave the police officer tea.
16.            You were all witnesses that day. The man roared, “You see this man from Mbaise, I know you! You have used the Devil in you to drive away the God that is in this man now.”
17.            To him, I am the one holding Satan and used it to drive away that God in the police officer. In other words, Satan has defeated God. There is nothing we will not hear as long as our ears are open.
18.            That is why I have always told to you, if you are a child of God; you have to circumcise your ears. If you keep your ears open to hear all things people are saying about you, you will be offended by everybody. Even your own maid, you will hear her speaking evil of you.
19.            Thus, the best thing to do is to close your ears. Keep still. Keep your eyes on the target. When I get to the end, I can look back.
20.            A story was told concerning tortoise and the dog, they were on a race, the dog perceived the odour of something and entered the bush, but tortoise gradually got to the end, because his eyes was fixed on its target.
21.            Note it, if they call me Devil and I start answering back, I am a foolish man. Rather, I will say, “God, keep this man alive, keep me alive too, so that at the end he will see what will become of this Devil.”
22.            Why? Because I believe that you are not going anywhere without Me. If you are going to Hell, you must acknowledge me, you are going to Heaven, you must acknowledge Me also. I am telling you God’s truth.
23.            I AM STANDING AT THE DOOR. IN THAT JUNCTION, THAT IS WHERE I AM STANDING. ALL THAT WILL GO TO HELL, MUST GO TO HELL THROUGH ME. ALL THAT WILL ENTER PARADISE WILL ENTER THROUGH ME.
24.            THUS, I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT WHILE YOU ARE AN UNBELIEVER HERE, YOU WILL BELIEVE THERE. IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE WHILE YOU ARE HERE, YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE WHEN YOU ARE THERE. IF IT IS NOT TRUE, I WILL NOT HAVE THE BOLDNESS TO SAY IT.
25.            I am aware that there are so many so-called Christs (and Christians) in Nigeria and beyond. I do not grudge with any of them, let them continue and let Me continue. However, the truth is this, there is not even one that has ever placed the Word of God rightly, and there is not even one that has come with a scriptural commission. There is not even one that has been vindicated with the supernatural vindications, which are all scriptural.
26.            Thus, there is not even one that heard the voice of the scripture. That is why they are campaigning everywhere. Blind people! I do not campaign, but wherever you are, if I want to reach you, I will reach you. Anywhere you are, be the worst prostitute, if I have loved you, I have loved. What is more, my love for you is unconditional.
27.            I do not care what people are saying, all I know is that I have put your name as those I love. Ask me why I love the person, I do not know, but I love the person, finish. Moreover, because I love you, when you transgress, my eyes will turn red at the expense of love. Whomever God loves, He chastises that he may be zealous and turn back. Repent means “Turn back”.  
28.            It will take God to put you out and go for you. He that pushes a man out and goes for the man, does He hate the man? We have come to the end of all things.
29.            Let me just show you how you know these people. All these years you know Me, I have been a civil servant earning a living through my work. I have never been a burden to any local Church for one day.
30.            I have not even written any letter or circular to any local Church appealing for financial help. If there is any that has given me or my Family or anybody around me, he did it voluntarily by personal revelation; but not as obligation.
31.            I have never visited any local Church because of money, and no local Church has in any way contributed to my welfare. I speak the truth, I lie not. However, there are some individuals in some local Churches that have this concern for my welfare. But talk of local Church, not even one, not even the Church at Onitsha.
32.            Thus, I have done my best to present this Gospel all these years without charge and I have no regret. When God calls a man, he backs him up. I have never presented this Gospel in a beggarly way.
33.            From time to time, I visit some families. There, in their face with their food on their table, I will also speak the truth to them. I have never compromised my holy and high calling because of your dining table for one day!
34.            If there is one that takes the greatest rebuke from Me, it is one that comes closest to Me from time to time. Like the other day, I was in my house and I had something with somebody, I invited the person to my house, he said, “How could it be this young man I knew when he left.”
35.            And I placed myself on that statement; there, as I was watching and in that condition in the night, there was no light, I could see from my house to old market road.
36.            Thus, while I was there, I saw the man coming in their old father’s style. He crossed one-track road, came out in the other road and came out. He thought that the thing was over; in the morning, I met him, before he made blah blah blah, I opened my mouth.
37.            I said, “My friend, this is mark of love. If there is no love, if you perish, perish. All the time I have been alive, what benefit have I been gaining from your living?” I spoke to the young man very well.
38.            Is Bishop Okey Paul in the Church? You know, he is my darling friend. I said, “Sir, if you do not know why I am anxious about it, let me tell you, it is not because of you an adult, it is for these children.” Because I know if Satan destroys him on the way, surely I am seriously affected.
39.            I said, “I believe with all my heart that I have rendered services and will equally render more service to you more than your relation will. You are a member of my Family. If you are a bachelor, I will say okay, if you want to die, die.
40.            Look at my brother, Morde is there; at times he will not sleep in the house. Have you seen me coming to ask of him? I know he is a bachelor, he can die anywhere, live anywhere, so why looking for him? He is like a taxi man who has no station. Hence, you see him at Upper Iweka, a little while you see him at Main Market, Onitsha. But to you, it is not so.”
41.            Thus, you are a train, you have a terminus. You are a train. You have a terminus. You have understood the message. I am saying that as long as a love you, I am a check to you and you are a check to me while we stay in this faith.
42.            I have presented this message without charge. I thank God that I have maintained my integrity in this Faith up to this end. If I did not mess it up till now and I have rounded up; thus, do not ever say, that brother will make shipwreck, no, I have received my crown already. I am crowned already!
43.            The little few days that are left here, are to make people around me know that I am not a hypocrite. However, I have become a home of Christ. Within this few days they will come and they will say, “So, this man has commonsense!”
44.            I have commonsense. I am not a fool but it will not be wrong. Now, to this people whom I have counted my enemies because they ARE ENEMIES OF THIS Gospel truth, you cannot please them. No matter the way you present the Gospel, even if you come to their house and stay with them, the moment you go away, they will still speak evil of you.
45.            When they ask you question, they are not asking you the question because they do not know the answer, they want to know whether you will contradict what they have in their hearts. They are always tempting every man of God, every sister; they are tempters in the Church. Now, look at the way they see the ministers.
46.            Second Corinthians chapter 12 verse 16: “But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.” KJV.
47.            People that hated St. Paul, they were calling him a sneaky fellow, a subtle man, that he was coming to them pretending that he did not need their money but in one way or the other that he might benefit financially from them.
48.            If they had loved St. Paul and believed him, do you think they would have been making such remarks? These are people that entered into the Message unnoticed. We call them false brethren. They are false brethren. In addition, such people cannot be members of our Household because they are walking contrary to our Family tradition.
49.            In our Family which is Family of God, we have a tradition, we do not blaspheme anybody neither do we tell lies against anybody. Thus, if you think I have been making money from you by my visit to your local Churches, you are my enemy. However, I will say that I have become poor because of you. Because Paul said, “The Church has made me poor”. And you know my testimony is true.
50.            Nobody can accuse Me of financing my trips. It is only me and my God that know how my missionary trips are being financed. That is why if I do not have enough money I do not go out because I must have enough money to finance myself and those that will go with me.
51.            While St. Paul was doing his best, some people were somewhere trying to discourage him: “He is a subtle man, we know him”. Because they did not know St. Paul. Had it been that they knew him, they would not have made such statement.
52.            Even if he collected money from them, was it a crime? Was he not feeding them spiritually? Was he not worthy to live even from their goodwill? Yet he did not do that.
53.            It is very easy to identify a man called by God. To identify a man of God is very easy. You can make comparisons between the man of God and the self-acclaimed man of God. The difference is always clear! In spite of that, St. Paul continued in his teaching.
54.            First Corinthians chapter 9 verses 16 through 17: “For just preaching the Gospel isn’t any special credit to me—I couldn’t stop preaching it if I wanted to. I will be utterly miserable. Woe unto me if I do not.” KJV.
55.            If a man called St. Paul came into this ministry, he would have been discouraged. He saw a lot of discouragements like I have met lots and lots of discouragements, even from among dear loved ones. Some of them disappointing me even at the time I needed their services.
56.            Then, if I am not benefiting financially or otherwise from this ministry, does it mean I take delight in talking, take delight in travelling, abandoning my Family? What then is the essence of my preaching? What lured me into preaching? Could it be I am eloquent enough or I am more educated than any other persons? There must be something; a supernatural voice is compelling me to speak or to preach. Otherwise, I would have given up.
57.            A man labours for his wage. If you see Pentecostal preachers, they are preaching because of the money they are getting. End-time Message, they have become ministers because of tithe. They are all benefitting.
58.            What is the thing motivating me into preaching? What has been compelling me? What has been the force behind my preaching, behind my labour? There must be something supernatural behind it.
59.            “…For just preaching the Gospel isn’t any special credit to me—I couldn’t stop preaching it if I wanted to. I will be utterly miserable. Woe unto me if I do not…”
60.            God has done what? Picked me out and has given me this sacred trust. Thus, there is a sacred trust in my hand which I collected not from any human being.
61.            God has picked me up, commissioned me with this sacred trust. In other words, I am preaching here as obligations whether I like it or not, whether people believe or not. Thus, there is no way I can avoid it. It is not that it gives me joy, no. Who would not like to have his rest?
62.            You do somebody good, he will repay you with evil, yet you continue preaching and you say you love the person. This is God Himself.
63.            “…If I were volunteering my services of my own free will, then the Lord would give me a special reward; but that is not the situation, for God has picked me out and given me this sacred trust and I have no choice.” LB.
64.            Never demanding my right! Preaching the Gospel without expenses from anybody. It gives me joy. What is my joy? My joy is not preaching the Gospel without expenses from you, no. The only joy of my preaching is, if peradventure in the end, I will be with all of you in eternity. That is, my joy will have no boundary at all! If it is a matter of causing expenses, no, I would have given up.
65.            But I know that without talking to you and showing you this hidden way as it is being revealed to me, surely you are perishing, and there is no joy seeing you stumbling into Hellfire. That is, somebody sincerely walking into bottomless pit, and I know I have the message, if I should withhold it, my conscience will not spare me.
66.            Thus, as a sacred trust I collected from God and not from man, I am duty bound to carry you safely to the end, because the commission said, “I HAVE SENT YOU TO GO AND BRING MY PEOPLE HOME.”
67.            If I have come with full salvation, only to bring you home at last, and I have succeeded in bringing you out and along the way I abandon you, won’t our enemies laugh at us? You see why it is something I must continue anyhow! I must continue anyhow because when I get to the end, the joy will be greater than what I am passing through now.
68.            I know you may not understand my way. There are many things about Me which you may not understand, but when I take you safely to the end, surely you will understand all things. Many of you will weep that day for some of your wicked actions towards Me. I am telling you God’s truth! Many of you will bow down their heads in shame because if you were told that I would save you at last, you will not believe.
69.            Do not ever think that you are just managing with me. No, you are not managing with Brother, but if I want to manage with you, I will manage with you. No man can manage with God. If you like, believe it.
70.            St. Paul said that he was the most useless child of God, in other words, God was managing with him. He could not have been managing with God.
71.            Second Corinthians chapter 6 verses 12 through 13: “Any coldness still between us is not because of any lack of love on my part, but because your love is too small and does not reach out to me and draw me in” LB.
72.            You see, the Church at Corinth came to a point where they became starchy, their relationship with their own Christ in their day became severed and St. Paul being a compassionate father, saw the whole situation, he did not want it to linger more, he gave the remedy immediately. But first of all, he told them their error.
73.            He said, “The coldness between us is not because I do not love you, I love you. But the coldness is caused by your lack of love for me and for my brethren.”
74.            When love is one sided, there is going to be coldness. Any compound that is swept one side can hardly stay without grass. So, they were maintaining one sided love, St. Paul was the one holding that love. I hope, that is not our condition? I know, to some, so it is. But to some it is two sided, it is well maintained. However, I want all of us to make a balance.
75.            There should be a balance. Let us be in the business where God has manifested His love for us, for it will help us. Let us be in the business where God has manifested His love to us and we show impact by reciprocating that same love by being loyal and faithful.
76.            You see, love must be reciprocated. But to St. Paul, it wasn’t so, yet he was not discouraged. I know that there is nothing you can do to reciprocate my love for you. At a point where you think I hate you, that is where I laugh at your foolishness. Who are you? Why should I hate you? What have you done that will cause me to hate you?
77.            Maybe because I have chastised you with few words, for that, you misinterpreted it to be hatred. Who are you? Why should I hate you? If you do not know what you are in my side, you may be thinking that you are something. You are something if I make you something.
78.            However, if I do not want, I will place you where you belong to. You are mere dust. I will trample upon you and continue my journey. However, if I want to exalt you, I will exalt you.
79.            What am I saying? Do not make yourself anything until God makes you something. Do not aim at receiving a man’s commendation but aim at receiving God’s commendation. And this will only come if we reciprocate His love for us.
80.            As long as we find it difficult to reciprocate His love for us, there is no way we can win His approval. Amen.

THE JUSTIFIER OF THE GENTILES IS ON THE SCENE
Ephesians chapter 1 verses 3 through 12:“How we praise God, the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every blessing in Heaven because we belong to Christ. Long ago, even before he made the world, God chose us to be His very own, through what Christ would do for us…”
2.                  God chose us to be His very own. Do we believe that we are of God? If the answer is yes, why do we rebel against our God from time to time?
3.                 If you read Colossians chapter 1 verse 16, the Bible said that Christ made all things in Heaven and on Earth for Himself. In the book of St. John chapter 1 verse 10, it said, “He (Christ) created all things by Himself, and without Him, there was nothing ever created. And although He made the world,” the Bible said, “the world does not know him.
4.                 Man does not know his Maker, hence you can wrestle with your Maker. That He was a man born of a woman, did that remove Him from what He is?
5.                 I AM WHAT I AM. Your unbelief means nothing. It cannot change me from my position. That you know my parents, know my kindred, my wife and children, does it have any meaning? It has no meaning.
6.                 “…Long ago, even before he made the world, he chose us to be his very own, through what Christ would do for us; he decided then to make us holy in his eyes, without a single fault…”
7.                  He decided to make us holy in His own eyes without a single fault. In other words, He that will justify you is with you. Once He has justified you, you are justified. That is why He pushed it this way: “If the Son shall set you free, you shall be free indeed.”
8.                 I remembered the prophecy we heard those days, that the Justifier of the Gentiles is on the scene, and the Destroyer of the Gentiles is on the scene also. It is a prophecy. He that will justify the Gentiles is here.
9.                 St. Paul told them that were alive in his day, “You are all justified and cleansed by the faith that is in me. Before then, they did not have any faith. Until I appeared on the scene, there was not even one of you that had the faith of Christ. You all were Moses’ disciples; and you were following the ministration of doom, death and disappointment. You did not know the way of life; you did not have the faith of Christ.
10.            Though you were mentioning Jesus, Jesus, the same way people mention His name today, and say, “Grace of God, Grace of God,” do they know the meaning? ON THAT DAY WHEN THEY WILL BE IN TROUBLE, THEY WILL CALL ON HIM EXPECTING HIM TO SAVE THEM.
11.            How can you call on a man you do not know? How can you call on Him you do not believe? But you (The Bride) know me. A little while, the world will see me no more, but you shall see Me for I will always be with you.
12.            You know me, I am always around.  You know my dwelling place, you know my residential address, but to some people, the Son of Man has no place to lay down His head. You call Him a liar, that is what He is. To some others, they can even tarry with Him in his house for one night or even more; and we have the testimony, we saw Him with our eyes.
13.            We slept in his house with Him, we ate and drank with Him, we even drove around. What is more,  He is the message of life. Believe it or not, this is truth.
14.            “…He decided to make us holy in his eyes without a single fault. We who stand before him covered with his love. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own Family by sending Jesus Christ to die for us. And he did this because he wanted to.” LB.
15.            His unchanging plan has remained one thing: TO ADOPT US INTO HIS VERY FAMILY; for which cause, He sent the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. William Branham said that in every dispensation, there must be the Anointed One in whom all of you will be adopted.
16.            Read the message titled, “Adoption”. Christ must appear in every dispensation as the Messiah of that Age, without Him nobody is saved. In addition, when the man appeared, He was out to raise a Family.
17.            Get me right, all that will be saved will be members of His Family, whether they are living in the North or in the South or in the West, they are all members of His Family, and He unites them in His Word.
18.            That is why He said, “Father, unite them together by your word for thy word is truth”. Then, what is truth? Pilate asked, “What is truth?” Christ turned to Pilate and said, “I am the truth, the way and the life.”
19.            What is truth? You are dodging truth. It is sure and certain. You see, I thank God for what people are saying this day. I spoke to a brother now, I told him, brother, “Go and pray.”
20.            He said, “Brother, go and pray to who? You ask me to go and pray over a matter, who do I pray to? Tell me how important. Brother, tell me the mind of God, that is all I want.”
21.            I said, “Brother, since you have faith, go and do it this way.” However, to some others, I will talk to them, they will say, “Brother, let me go and pray over it.” Go and pray! When you receive the answer, come to me, I will share the joy with you. Go and pray! Halleluiah.
22.            Thus, if the whole thing is to adopt us into His Family and for that reason, He has sent One in whom all of us will have our inheritance, there we are going to have our adoption. Consequently, we all must be adopted in the Beloved.
23.            The only way you can do the will of God is to believe in Him who He has sent, and then you become a member of that Family. Once you are in that Family, you know Him. If there should be an Apostle, He is the One, if there be Prophet, He is the One, if there be Christ of that age, He is also the One.
24.            That takes us to Ephesians chapter 2 verses 19 through 20: “Now you are no longer strangers to God and foreigners to Heaven..." You are no more visitors to Heaven, people that will come and go away. You are no longer observers like our Brother Chukwudi, Ike and Onuchi; you are no longer strangers and visitors to this place.
25.            You know, they are strangers and visitors; we receive them in the Sanctuary from time to time. Any day they want to come to fellowship, they will come! Any day they do not want to come, they will not come.
26.            The day they will like to come, they will come even very late, “After all, what is the need troubling myself, am I a part of them?”
27.            You know, by their fruits you shall know them. We know them, and we stretch forth our hands and greeting them, receive them and shower them with love, romance with them very well, until we play them into the Kingdom of Darkness where they will say, “If I had known”.
28.            Who will say that brother killed him or her? “Brother has killed me! Daddy has killed me!” Na lie! Nobody killed you but you killed yourself! If you really believe your Prophet, William Branham and believe the Bible, and believe me to be the Sent One from God; because He that is in the bosom of the Father knows the mind of His Father.
29.            If you do not know, Yasir Arafat, went to Russia for his campaign and the President of Russia warned him seriously saying, “Be careful about your proposed declaration of independence on the December 30th next year. Because it may trigger off a serious trouble! Be careful! You had better go for peace talk.”
30.            However, Israel have said that they are no longer prepared for anything peace talk. What they want is a showdown. Because the world is against Israel, Israel is against the world, so, it is showdown. Showdown 2000, and the Church is now sitting on the fence, watching events from the back corner. Glory be to God!
31.            I AM ONE OF THEM. DO NOT BE AFRAID OF WAR FOR IT MAY BE THAT YOU MAY BE CO-OPTED IN THAT BATTLE, BUT NOT ALL OF YOU. WHEN YOU PUT ON YOUR SUPERNATURAL UNIFORM, YOU ARE QUALIFIED FOR THAT WAR. I AM TELLING YOU THE TRUTH.
32.            I received a dream from a local Church. A sister had a dream where everybody in the Church including sisters were flying like horses and human heads were falling down like that. They were smashing the nations like that, men and women were moving like chariots of fire and everybody was running helter-skelter.
33.            I SAID, THIS IS BIBLICAL: THE LORD IS COMING WITH TEN THOUSAND OF HIS SAINTS TO EXECUTE JUDGMENT. EVEN OUR WOMEN WILL BE ARMY THAT DAY.
34.            ISRAEL IS PRESENTLY TRAINING BOTH MEN AND WOMEN. ARE YOU AFRAID? WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR NEW BODY, YOU ARE FULLY EQUIPPED. YOU CAN MOVE ANYWAY YOU LIKE. YOU WILL SHAKE YOUR BODY, AN IMMORTAL BODY, STRONGER THAN THAT OF BAKASSI.
35.            I said, “That it was a spiritual dream. I believe in that dream. Though it tarries, wait for it.”
36.            One of these days, you are going to move like chariots of fire and then you smite the heathens. It is scripture. Whatever will be left will be ruled with a rod of iron. Without political campaign, we will have governors and ministers, commissioners, local government chairmen, then the kingdom of the world will be the Kingdom of the Lord and His people. Selah!
37.            “…Now, you are no longer strangers to God and foreigners to Heaven but you are members of God’s very Family, citizens of God’s country…”
38.            Note it, citizens of God’s country. In other words, we all come from one Country; one Family, one Household, and we are built up together upon the foundation of the Apostles and the prophets, the Word of God which is Christ to be our chief Corner Stone; an unshaken foundation!
39.            I am establishing the Family where you are all adopted, and you are the people that are organizing this thanksgiving service, so, do not say, “Brother Odoemena is having thanksgiving service.” Say, “Our Family had a nice thanksgiving service.”
40.            If they want to know your Family, tell them, “It is the Family of Odoemena.” If the Bride comes here with a new Name Odoemena, it is not a crime.
41.            “Lo I make all things new.” Thus, anybody moving at the old style may miss it. That is the promise of the hour. Anybody looking at the Earthly Jerusalem is missing it. We now have a New Jerusalem which is Heavenly. It is not Earthly but Heavenly, which is the Church of the First-born, where all of you are registered members.
42.            I AM THERE! WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, I AM THE TREE OF LIFE IN THE MIDST OF THE GARDEN. You are just my branches. You can only bear fruits and your fruits will remain if you abide in Me. I am the True Vine, cut off from Me, few days you dry off.
43.            All that rose up and rebelled, where are they today? Are they not dried up? The little fruits they gathered all got rotten. Detach yourself from Me if you wish, I will not ask you to come back.
44.            Go and verify from all that left, even those that I ordained with my own hand, verify from them whether I have given them even a piece of note. I do not have time for that, because even their dooms were already predicted before they left.
45.            Romans chapter 8 verse 14: “For all who are led by the spirit of God are sons of God…”
46.            The Spirit of God is the Word of God. Jesus Christ said in the Book of St. John chapter 6 verse 63, that “the words I give unto you, they are spirits and they are life.”
47.            “…And though we should not be like thinking fearful slaves…”
48.             A brother came to my house and was sitting on the floor. We indicted him; he was looking like Prophet Jehu, looking like Moses’ disciple, holding his hand on his head. We remembered those bad days: “I am not feeling fine, I am not feeling fine!” I asked whether he had not heard about Gagara tea, he said he had heard about it but no mouth to drink.
49.            “Why?” I asked. He said, “I am afraid.” “Afraid of what? There is no fear in love. Perfect love drives away all fear.” I said.
50.            If you have perfect love for me, you will like to embrace me twenty four hours. Even if you hear that I am indicting you, joyfully, you will run to Benjamin Street. However, if something is wrong in your life and I begin to ask of you, you will start fainting. Maybe you have kissed Moses’ religion
51.            You know, if somebody kisses Moses religion, he wears Moses outlook. The doctrine you believe reflects in your life. Now, you believe in me, if you are refreshed, you are refreshed. Look at how healthy the Church is. It is the doctrine reflecting, but when we were holding the Message of Death (the Law), we were looking like death.
52.            People were even sympathizing with us:  “Nna, this Church will kill you! Look at how your body is! Do you have fat somebody in your midst at all?” They did not know we were passing through death, and now, we have resurrected by the Power of Grace, look at how fat and plump we are.
53.            Goodnews to the Church that Grace has added another child to this Church. Sister Faith Okechukwu Ibe put to bed a bouncing baby boy, no problem, no skin pain. That is Amazing Grace.
54.            Brethren, from Abuja, take the good news home. Pass the message to Zonkwua, that Sister Faith has put to bed a bouncing baby boy in our Church maternity home. That is Brother Onyema and Chika’s Hospital and Maternity Home, and also Children Clinic and Family Planning Centre.
55.            We must put it otherwise; these things will put us into trouble. If you are drinking this tea, be very careful. Go to that our clinic for counseling; otherwise, you may have your child at the age of sixty-five.
56.            When your husband will not be old again, what do you think will result? The man looking ever young! If the Spirit of God is in you, He will lead you on the way you will go and you do not have any room for panicking. I am telling you God’s truth.
57.            There is no fear in love. You will only come to God boldly at all times. No matter the trouble, when you come, you just feel free, you relax. What a wonderful thing for one to find himself, even sitting with God, discussing, one word from Him is even enough, that’s all I need! It comforts my heart!
58.            However, one word will not come out unless we are in the right relationship. I have told you, you are not a Jew because you are behaving like Jews.
59.            “…For all who are led by the spirit of God are sons of God, and so we should not be like hidden fearful men, but we should behave like God’s very own children adopted into the bosom of His Family…”
60.            Adopted where? Can the bird be afraid of its nest? We should not behave as beggarly elements. I want to see brethren that will come to Me with boldness, but I thank God that I now have many of them.
61.            When you see us discussing, drinking and charting, it is always glorious, whether in the corridor or anywhere. Because they that know their God is always happy.
62.            I do not believe that my God will destroy me. I do not believe it. Why should He destroy me, is He crazy? Why will He destroy me? How many people did He kill?
63.            When a woman gives birth to a child, she becomes equal with her mother. It is applicable between God and us.
64.            When you are in a right relationship with God, everything goes very easy because you know how to approach him; you know when to approach him. You know how and when and also where. Amen.

RECOGNIZE THE POINT OF YOUR ADOPTION INTO GOD’S FAMILY
We go a little further. Now, we see God adopting us into His own Family. It is when we have done this that you see this prophecy will come to pass.
2.                 Jeremiah 31 verse 1. “At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people” KJV.
3.                 God said that he is going to be God over the families of Israel.
4.                 Colossians 3 verse 15: “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with Grace in your hearts to the Lord.
5.                 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” KJV.
6.                  Now notice Jeremiah 31 verse 1, God said that He is going to be God over all the Household in Israel. Every Family in Israel must be controlled by God. Now, it has been narrowed down. We have seen that we must do everything in the Name of the Christ of our day who is our God.
7.                 In addition, Bible went further even to tell us that every Family in Heaven and on Earth must be named after Him. Thus, it is going to be a Family name.
8.                 I am saying that for you to have been adopted into this great and wonderful Family, it is a wonderful privilege. Recognize the point of your adoption into this Family. In time past, you were enemies to this Faith, you were enemies to this Family, but today you are not only friends but members of this Household, and you now share in all inheritances in this Household, why? There is one that appeared in whom you have your way into this Family. If I did not come your way, you would have remained enemy till now.
9.                 All that have not come my way by the preaching of this Gospel truth, have they found themselves into this Family? Now, have you recognized the point of your adoption into this Family?
10.            If you go to the message titled, “Adoption, Election, Predestination And Calling,” there I showed you that there is always going to be a point where everybody will be adopted in Him, and the Bible called that point, “The Beloved”. There must be “one Beloved in whom I am well pleased, hear ye Him”.
11.            And it shall come to pass, if any fails to hear from Him, stops paying attention to Him, He shall be cut off from among His brethren. That settles the matter. That is why St. Paul said, “Be careful that you reject Him not that speaketh from Heaven.” For as many as rejected the words of Moses were destroyed. Now, there is a voice speaking to you from Heaven. You know where Heaven is.
12.            I say, there is a voice speaking to you from Heaven, whose voice shook the whole Earth, and he is saying once more, I will not only shake the Earth but the Heavens also, so that those things that are shakable will be removed. That, things that are unshakable will now stand.
13.            When you hear God coming from Heaven…oh, I trust God that He knows me. You now know Him. I say, you now know Him, but I want you to know Him more.
14.            I was talking to my mother recently. I said, “I know you are here for thanksgiving service quite alright. I would have been happier if my father had come also. Moreover, I am certain, you must have heard my message which I sent without hypocrisy, saying that it will be very, very difficult for me to step my feet on the soil of Mbaise, because the time of their visitation is over.”
15.            I went further, “To show you that I mean it; I have never felt comfortable here in Onitsha than I am feeling now. If you look at me, my composure and my house, you will know that it is bye-bye.” I know that she is not surprised.
16.            Woman, are you surprised? No. Don’t you know this Voice? Has this Voice not sounded before? Even when I was nothing, you and your husband know about this Voice, your relations also knew it.
17.            You see, look at my mother, she knows about this Voice; so, if she heard that anything happened tomorrow, she will not be surprised. If she says she is surprised, know that she is a liar!
18.            A time came when I became very difficult to control; to them they thought that I was to serve the gods of the land. As at then, I was taken to everywhere. There was a place we went, the man abandoned me and took his wife home, that they should hold me for they did not know what I was seeing.
19.            I was not seeing anything apart from that which I am seeing today. The same thing sustained me when we were small, that time playing football. At times, while playing our ball, you see me shouting and running home. If that which I was seeing then has stopped, I will tell you.
20.            The highest thing that will happen is that if you look at my eyes, it will look like a guy eye, but we know what it is. What I am saying is that all I have said today is not strange to you. There is nobody from my family that will say that they do not know about it. I AM A SUPERNATURAL MAN FROM THE BEGINNING. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW, GO AND VERIFY. SOME HAVE EVEN GONE TO MY FAMILY AND VERIFIED.
21.            Thus, do not think that it is strange; there is nothing strange about it. Even my parents knew that a day is coming when I will go after my Father’s business. There must be a day I will go after my Father’s business. And the whole world will know. I have never been a pagan from my childhood; and there is nothing I believe which I do not bring home.
22.            Brother Mike, were we not holding this Faith when we prayed one certain prayer in those days and the whole fowls that were to be used for sacrifice to the idol died instantly? Those that understood left on their own to go away, while they that wanted to challenge God saw it with their eyes.
23.            Hence, I told them, “If you think that you are more powerful than God, allow those fowls till daybreak, let’s see what will be their fate.” What happened? In the morning, dead birds (fowls) filled the whole compound. That sacrifice that they used to do every year could not hold that year.
24.            They thought I would stay; I left them and went my way because it was not yet time for it. Everything has time. Single-handedly, I saved the whole of Mbaise during the war, without me nobody would have been alive.
25.            What I am saying is this, if you want to know somebody, try and know the family where he came from. Do not know Me in the township. Come to a point where you can say, “I know him, I know his father, I know the family where he came from so that you will be confident.”
26.            Not that I come from a very rich home, no, I come from the poorest family on Earth. If you see my own family where I come from, you will not marry me unless God said you must marry me.
27.            That is why I believe that Nzubechukwu is my wife and no other person. I do not think that anybody from Anambra; Nsugbe for that matter could give her hand in marriage to me, seeing where I came from. In addition, according to their law, I took her, her father and her own elder brother to my hometown before they agreed that I should marry her, yet her mind was fixed to marry me and I was very poor.
28.            YOU KNOW WHAT POVERTY IS! TODAY, I WILL TELL YOU TO GO AND MARRY AND YOU WILL BE SHAKING YOUR HEAD, IT IS BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW WHO IS TALKING TO YOU. WHO HAS MARRIED BY MY INSTRUCTION AND HE IS NOT HAPPY TODAY? YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
29.            I will tell you that your salvation is still questionable until you get married. If I am married, you must pattern after me. Then, if you do not want to marry, come to me with a fowl AND I will liberate you.
30.            I told you when I was leaving theRE—brother I.K AND Pastor Obinna ARE MY witnessES—I said, “one of these days, I am going to leave this Mbaise. Now, you have rejected me and my message especially my Family, you will hear about me from far away place; and you will travel long distance to come and hear me, for without me, no salvation for you.”  
31.            I said that you will use vehicle, you will travel long distance and even sleep in Onitsha, but I do not know him. Until it gets to my turn, they travelled long distance and spent two days in Onitsha. On that day, I reminded them the words I spoke to them, which they confirmed. Thus, it has come to pass.
32.            MANY OF YOU IN THIS FAITH, IF YOU DO NOT MAKE USE OF THIS OPPORTUNITY, REMEMBER YOU CANNOT CROSS OVER THERE. DO YOU KNOW THAT? THE MEETING POINT IS FAITH. AS LONG AS YOU CANNOT MAKE IT IN THIS CHURCH, IN THIS FAITH, YOU CANNOT CROSS OVER, FOR THERE IS NO MESSAGE THAT IS GOING TO BE PREACHED THERE.
33.            IT IS A MATTER OF TURNING HIS FACE TOWARDS HIS PEOPLE AND YOUR TRANSLATION WILL TAKE PLACE IN A SECOND.  
34.            If I cannot beget you by the Gospel in the Gentles, forgot about it! This is why I do not believe you come into this Kingdom of the saved and get lost unless from the beginning of the world, you were ordained to perdition.
35.            The Bible said, “God adds to His Church daily as many as should be saved.” Hence, if God does not want to save you, He will blind you from knowing the gate of this Church.
36.            Yes, this Faith is the Gate of Heaven. Many will see the Kingdom and they will not enter. Not all that sit in our midst in the fellowship (God’s Sanctuary) are part of this Kingdom, but they have seen this Kingdom, some are still looking at the sky and you know that he Kingdom COMETH NOT WITH STRIVES OR OBSERVABLE WITH HUMAN EYES. LO, THE KINGDOM OF GOD STANDETH SURE!
37.             To you that have believed in Me, the Bible said that you have been transferred from the Kingdom of Darkness into the Kingdom of His Dear Son, wherewith you are qualified to call Him Abba Father. When you believe it, just say, “Amen”.
38.            Not everybody is qualified to call Him Abba Father, but now, you are qualified because you are washed, you are sanctified, you are justified, counted not guilty, without a single fault. Grace (love) projected. No more, no less.
39.            Genesis chapter 28 verse 15:“Once more, I am with you, I will protect you wherever you go. I will bring you back safely to this land. I will deal with you constantly until I have finish giving you all I have promised you.
40.            Then Jacob woke up, God lives here, he exclaimed in terror. I have stumbled into His home…”
41.            In other words, God has a Home, and somebody stumbled into His Home unknowingly. All that have come to my home, all that have stumbled into my home and stayed here, they are not here but some of them are here. By revelation, some know that God has a home: “Lo, I am with you always.” He said, “So, I have stumbled into God’s home.” This is what he said in terror.
42.            “…This is the awesome entrance to Heaven.”    
43.            This is what? -the awesome entrance to Heaven! He never said, “These are”. That is plural but the Gate of Heaven is one (singular).
44.            Yes, like the song said, “We are travelling on the right road. There is one way to the city of God, we are travelling on the right road!”
45.            You know, the man was shocked; an awesome revelation! He was so afraid: “So, this can be truth! How did I find myself in the home of God unknowingly to me? To be frank, this is really the Gate of Heaven! This is Ebeano!”
46.            We are resting in God’s home yet we do not know, and you see somebody playing with it unknowingly. There is no disease greater than the disease of ignorance. That you can be privileged to be ushered into the Kingdom of Heaven, yet foolishly you miss it with unnecessary argument and hopeless human philosophy.
47.            Brother Chikezie Ukasoanya, take note. Till today, you are still running End-time Message at Isiala-Ngwa, but I thank God, I have severed the people I love. However, as many as wish to follow your way, let them follow. As many as wish to follow Me, they know what to do. Very soon, I am giving them a shepherd (A Pastor) that will Pastor the remnant I have seen there.
48.            You have divided your Church into pieces with politics; some now agree with you, some follow Nath. You see, that is rubbish! Real rubbish! How can you expect Me (the Almighty) to be in that type of hopeless arrangement? I had better worship God in Hell than to be there.
49.            All along, you have called yourself something you are not. I speak to your shame, that you have been wrestling with your soul, not knowing it! I want you to come up with scriptures and End-time Message quotes from William Branham, place your sheep, where he should be, and rightly correct me, tell me that I am wrong!
50.            You do not know that my visit to Isiala-Ngwa was your doom and I will still visit you again, and that time my Voice will change. Run for your life all that are careful there!
51.            Let me tell you something, God gave the people of Israel a king in anger and removed the king by His wrath. Think about it. You can find it in the book of Hosea. I continue.
52.            Look at, Jacob was promised by Almighty God that He will bless him (Jacob), and not minding the transgression of Jacob, the Lord was there even His Word.
53.            The Lord said, “I will protect you and see you through, nothing will ever happen to you. Anywhere you like, run to, my spirit will always go with you. I will remain with you in my love until I have fulfilled all that I promised to give you. I am not looking at you from your filthy condition, after all, you are a man. Can anything good come out from Israel?”
54.            JACOB IS A SUPPLANTER, A DECEIVER. ESAU, A FORNICATOR, TWO OF THEM CONCLUDED IN UNBELIEF THAT MERCY WOULD BE PROJECTED. THUS, JACOB CAN NEVER CONDEMN ESAU, ESAU CAN NEVER CONDEMN JACOB.
55.            Transgression is transgression, but mercy has been extended to all of them, both the Jews and the Gentiles. If you know the mystery, happy are you! If you do not know the Bible, when they could not believe Him. He left them there and went over to the Gentiles, for so the Lord had commanded us.
56.            NOW THAT HE HAS REVEALED HIMSELF, WE NOW SEE HIM AS A MAN WITH A DYED GARMENT COMING FROM HEAVEN: “DO NOT DESPISE ME BECAUSE MY COLOUR IS BLACK. IT IS THE SUN,” FOR HE IS LIVING ALONG THE EQUATORIAL LAND. HE SAID, “THE SUN ACTED ON ME, FOR WHICH CAUSE YOU NOW DESPISE ME.”
57.            They that know their God must do exploits. If you know where He ran to and where He was harboured, happy are you. Lo, I tell you, Esau is Edom. You know, Jacob, because of his foolish attitude, went and coveted something that did not belong to him and he did not know something was there.
58.            He only heard that the elder will serve the younger, then Jacob went and possessed the elderly position, and Jacob has remained a servant till today. That is why when He (Almighty God) sent Jacob to other nations; He made them servants in all the heathen nations where He sent them. They were made servants to the Gentiles. Can you imagine Jacob serving Gentiles which is Edom. Jacob was serving Gentile which is Esau. Glory be to God, our faith, our family is the house of truth.
59.            This is Ebeano (the most current). When you go where there is anointing that shoots you high, we do not teach you like this ancient Pharisees, we carry you along. If any man is coming to make noise and display his ignorance and stupidity, teaching about (saying) things, he does not know we tell him to close his mouth!
60.            St. Paul said, “They were talking about the Law, the meaning they do not know. They do not know the Law is just and perfect, worthy to the extent of taking us to Christ. The law is holy, just and perfect only to the extent of leading us to Christ, there (when it has taken us to Christ), its perfection will stop, the holiness of the Law stops, we are no longer under it (the Law). We have seen the whole body. Bye-bye, we are now following the mask (that housed the Elohim).
61.            Thus, when you see the Law, do not allow the Law to frighten you. Those that are under the Law, their faces are always looking like bone and they normally frighten members of the Church. Some of them are not here now. Those you could watch around and see their stature will frighten you, they are not here. You now have your freedom.
62.            Do not worry; I will deal with them with what they claim to believe. They that believe the Law will be judged by the Law, they that believe Grace will be judged by Grace.
63.            The Bible said that mercy would be shown to them that show mercy, but to them that do not show mercy, mercy will not be extended. Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy. No mercy under the Law. The Law must be administered without mercy!
64.            I am using what they say they believe against them; because they must come to me and convince me that they kept the whole Laws from A to Z, without one single fault from the day they were born till the day they will appear before Me! Only there and then would they be justified.
65.            Even if they present it faultless, yet they have no part in the life that Christ gives. Thus, when you are frowning your face (making your face look tough) like Moses, we do not fear you, because we have proved our position. With your boned face, we say bye-bye to you.
66.            Now, you have stumbled into God’s home, that is the awesome Gate of Heaven. You did not know, you thought you were kidding but now the reality is here. It has become clear to you that without this faith, you are lost. Now, what is expected of you is to remain firm and resolute; then develop your heart like that of a lion.  
67.            To some of you that might be thinking that I do not know what I am doing, this scripture is an eye opener (a revelation). You believe you are in Jerusalem, I am also in Jerusalem. If there is a promise which God has made to His people, He will fulfill it to the end. Do not allow your joy today to turn to sorrow tomorrow. Amen.

GOD HAS COUNTED US WORTHY PUTTING US INTO THIS MINISTRY (1)
Joel chapter 2 verses 31 through 32: “The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon to blood before the great and terrible Day of the Lord shall come.
2.              Everybody who calls upon the name of God will be saved; even in Jerusalem some will escape, just as the Lord has promised, for he has chosen some to survive.” LB.  
3.                 The great and dreadful day of the Lord is along the way, and there is no other time everybody is expecting it more than the time the Lord is going to make war with the whole world in order to redeem His nation, Israel.
4.                 Remember that the position of Jerusalem is being hotly contested. Almighty God will not keep silent over the matter; surely, He is going to save His people from the hands of their enemies.
5.                 On that great day, when the Lord will make war with the entire world, who knows what will be the fate of mankind? The Bible said that on that day, kings shall be saved in Jerusalem. Who are these people? He said, “Those the Lord Himself had chosen to survive.” Did He say, everybody? Many are called but few are chosen.  
6.                 I believe with all my heart that I know those I have chosen, and those I have chosen, they know that they have been chosen by Me. You did not choose Me for one day, I chose you. Even if you were asked to choose Me, you would have rejected Me. Many of you were even running away from Me.
7.                 I was hunting you from place to place, even using hardship to make you stop somewhere. Even using sickness to make you stop somewhere, for if you fail to stop, you will fly away beyond my reach. Hence, you have to stop somewhere, while you will be running around it, I will meet you there.
8.                 You were wondering without any hope of salvation. God was not even in your programme. That is why, whatever comes your way, as long as you are an elect, it is predestinated by God. Thus, take it that those He had chosen to survive will survive.
9.                  Has He chosen you to survive? If He has not chosen you, why has He invited you to this meeting? I think all that are members of His Family have already survived. Note it, not that they will. That is why Hellfire is not mentioned in the Kingdom. We speak Hellfire to them that are without (outside the Ark).
10.            To them that are inside, we talk about Paradise and life in Paradise; the good things God has prepared for us, things that cannot even come into our dreams. These are the things we discuss. However, outside this Faith, we talk about Hell; we talk about God’s indignation. But inside the Ark we rejoice because we have been numbered among the escaped of all the nations.
11.            He has chosen some to survive and I am one of them. I have already survived! I am in the right way holding the truth, depending on Christ and Christ alone.
12.            St. Paul knew that some people might be doubting him, he said, “What if some people say, ‘what if at the end, our faith in Christ will disappoint us?’” He said; “let nobody ever think anything like that. For we shall be found to be sinners if we start rebuilding the old system (the Law) we pulled down.” The type Brother Chike is trying to lead the brethren at Isiala-Ngwa to; using eyeball (toughness of the face) to force people into believing it.
13.            Moreover, even the people being forced do not know that they are members of the same Family. If your Pastor denounces the Faith, stand firm and fight him. If he has the spirit of repentance, he will repent. If he excommunicates you, petition him to Jerusalem, I will know why. But do not call him Devil.  
14.            William Branham said, “If God leaves your Pastor, leave him for no man is empty. If God leaves, Satan will possess the person.”
15.            If you are desirous of eternal life, once you know that your Pastor wants to make a shipwreck, you just go away. Off your hand from him immediately! Let him use the Law on his wife. You know me, you know my manner of life, you know also my doctrines. Thus, no man should fool you. You should be speaking and behaving as one that has perfect knowledge of what the Faith is all about. Your position in the Church means nothing in this regard.
16.            WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IS ETERNAL LIFE AND THE CONDITION WE MUST ATTAIN. IT IS ONE STANDARD FOR ALL OF US. YOUR STANDARD MUST BE MY STANDARD AND THAT IS GRACE STANDARD.
17.            If you do not know, go to the message titled, “Law or Grace”. William Branham said that the last message that will be on Earth before rapture (translation) is the message of Grace, for without Grace, no flesh will be saved. Now, we have seen that only very few will be saved.
18.            Romans 9 verses 6 through 8. I believe this scipture will put you into desperation. “Well then, had God failed to fulfill his promises to the Jews? No. (For these promises are only to those who are truly Jews.) And not everyone born into the Jewish Family is truly a Jew.
19.            Just the fact that they come from Abraham doesn’t make them truly Abraham’s children. For the scriptures say that the promises apply to Abraham’s son, Isaac and Isaac’s descendants, though Abraham had other children too.
20.            This means that not all of Abraham’s children are children of God, but only those who believe the promise of salvation which he made to Abraham.” LB.
21.            Neither because they are the seeds of Abraham are they all children, but in Isaac shall thy seeds be called. That is, they which are the children of the flesh; these are not the children of God. But the children of the promise are counted for the seeds. Glory be to God forever!
22.            Not all that say they are children of God are children of God. In Romans chapter 2, I read it here before you recently, where Almighty God was encouraging us, telling us that not all that claim to be Jews are Jews. You do not say because your parents are Jews that you are a Jew.
23.            Romans chapter 2 verses 28-29. “For you are not real Jews just because you were born of Jewish parents or because you have gone through the Jewish Initiation ceremony of circumcision. No, a real Jew is anyone whose heart is right with God” LB.
24.            A REAL JEW IS ANYONE WHOSE HEART IS RIGHT WITH GOD. IS YOUR HEART RIGHT WITH GOD? IF YOU COME TO THE POINT WHERE YOU CAN SAY LIKE ST. JOHN, “I HAVE SEEN HIM WITH MY EYES, I HAVE EVEN HANDLED HIM WITH MY HAND, I HAVE HEARD HIM SPEAK;” IF YOU CAN SAY LIKE PETER, “I HAVE BEEN PRIVILEGED TO EAT WITH HIM;” IT THEN MEANS YOU KNOW GOD.
25.            NOW, IS YOUR HEART RIGHT WITH GOD? SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. YOU (The GENTLES) ARE NOT THE TRUE OLIVE TREE, YOU WERE JUST GRAFTED IN. IF SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS, I PRAISE GOD FOR THAT, AND A JEW IS NOT A JEW BECAUSE HE IS BORN IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL OR HE HAS HIS PARENTS AS JEWS.
26.            A JEW IS ONE WHOSE HEART IS RIGHT WITH GOD. WHETHER HE IS BORN IN ISRAEL OR NIGERIA, HE IS A JEW. THUS, SALVATION IS FOR HIM. WHETHER HE IS IGBO, HAUSA, YORUBA OR HAUSA-IGBO, AS LONG AS HIS HEART IS RIGHT WITH GOD, IN THE SIGHT OF GOD, HE IS A JEW, AND SALVATION BELONGS TO HIM.
27.            IS YOUR HEART RIGHT WITH GOD? NOW, THAT SALVATION IS NARROWING DOWN. YOU ARE THE JUDGE. IF YOUR HEART IS NOT RIGHT WITH GOD, WHAT WILL MAKE YOUR HEART NOT TO BE RIGHT WITH GOD? CAN YOU SAVE GOD? CAN YOU HELP GOD? IS GOD DEPENDING ON YOU? CAN YOU GUIDE HIM TO SAFETY? WHAT USEFUL PURPOSE DO YOU THINK YOU ARE SERVING GOD?
28.            OF ALL CREATURES ON EARTH, HE HAS CREATED, IS YOUR NAME EVEN MENTIONED? DOES HE KNOW ABOUT YOUR EXISTENCE? THEN, WHY SHOULDN’T YOUR HEART BE RIGHT WITH GOD? YOUR HEART WILL NOT BE RIGHT WITH GOD IF YOU CAME FROM THE LEFT.
29.            If you are born of the dangerous one, nothing will ever make your heart to be right with God, for light and darkness can never walk together. There must be sharp disagreement.
30.            That is why as many as belong to God, they have the same mind, they have the same spirit BECAUSE BY ONE SPIRIT ARE WE ALL BAPTIZED INTO ONE BODY. THEY SPEAK THE SAME THING. They are perfectly joined together in one judgment, the same heartbeat. There is no deceit in them, no hypocrisy; they are always open to one another.
31.            However, as many as are strangers and foreigners, our guests and visitors who will come, refresh themselves in our midst and go away, surely, there must be disagreement within and without. Visitors to the Faith, observers (snipers), scanners of the camp, you can call them computer scanning machines.  
32.            You keep on scanning us, you will see nothing because he has covered our bad side. A time came when Balak hired Balaam to come and scan the people of Israel. Balaam came and fixed his computer, wired the computer very well, he could not see anything. He told Balak, “My dear, it is impossible to curse these people, they are holy”.
33.            Why did he call them holy?  Because the God of Israel is in their midst. If they are not holy, why would God take refuge in their midst? A Holy God will only dwell with a holy people. If we are not holy, why did God vindicate Himself in our midst? If God has left us, where has He vindicated Himself outside us?
34.            Because, if He had done it in any end time message, they would have run round Nigeria with it. If he did it in Pentecostals, the millionaires would have sponsored it round the whole globe. Now, if you think that God has left us, tell us where He now subjoins, we will follow Him there. Does He do anything in secret? No sir! We are still with Him here. Yes sir!
35.            We were asking ourselves questions somewhere and somebody said, “Sir, we do not want that heat. Make it like that of the other time, a little calm, a little hot”. As people were trying to flood their motorcycles inside, I said, “No, take them outside, there will be no rain.”
36.            Somebody said, “I know more than that. What do you know? I need rain, it cannot stop you from enjoying yourselves, but while I am in the pulpit, I want a calm environment. Even if you sleep here, it does not make a difference. During the war, the refugee camps were not as large as this, yet people were there.”
37.            Romans 9 verses 27 through 28. “Isaiah the prophet cried out concerning the Jews that though there would be millions of them, only a small number would ever be saved” LB.
38.            Though there be millions of them, a small number will be saved. Why can’t you be in that small number? Now, looking at this Church now, it will appear that we are great.
39.            Now, you know, outside this place called by the Name of God, people still go to Church and they claim they are serving God, they want to go to Heaven, they are millions, but look at a few people in this Faith. You may be the only person in your village; you may be the only person even in your entire town.
40.            Do you know the population of Nigeria? If Nigeria is up to hundred million, those that are in this Church, are they up to ten thousand? In other words, let Israel be over trillions, only a small minority, chosen by the election of Grace would be saved. If you believe it, it shall be unto you according to your faith. Till this very day, there still remain a small believing minority.  
41.            Romans 11 verse 5. “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” AMP.
42.            Even so then, at this present time also, there is a remnant according to the election of Grace, not election of Law. Who chose such remnant? God Himself made the choice. You see, we must be grateful to Almighty God who has counted us worthy and faithful putting us into this ministry.
43.            If you do not know the reason why we are rejoicing, ask Me question. It is a wonderful privilege! There are too many people that wished to be in this ministry but they cannot. If it is to be purchased with money, many of us will not get it. If it is happening in America, many of us may not be there. If it happens in Kano, many of us here may not be there.
44.            What is more, God’s own election of Grace has brought me into the ministry. In other words, that which Israel could not achieve, election purchased it for Israel. That which the Gentiles could not do because they are the wild olive, ADOPTION did it for them.
45.            NOTE THIS, ISRAEL BY ELECTION, GENTILES BY ADOPTION (PERFECT). The same God, the same point of election is the point of adoption.
46.            In other words, it is a stone that will cause offence. A stone of something that will cause a serious offence. You cannot jump it, you sneer at Him, you are sneering at yourself. You laugh at Him, you are laughing at yourself. You mock Him; you are mocking yourself because He is not mocked. We watch you go into Hell. You may say, “Daddy, you are wicked”. Yes, call Me whatever you want to call me.
47.            There was one number I was singing in those days and that time, I was really bad. Because I was wrestling against the truth, until he get hold of me. Those boys that knew Me that time, some of them also call Me by that old name. No matter how they are seeing me today, they still get surprised, and joyfully they remind me of those good days: You call me bad.
48.            Call me bad. That is from the point you are seeing me. Another person will see Me from another perspective and say, “I have never met a man as good as this man”, because every human being on Earth has dual characters: Good character and bad character. Thus, before you point at anybody, crosscheck yourself first because everybody has his or her own.
49.            If you kill the mighty man in a domestic fight, a day will come when you will need the warrior. Thus, you can call me bad if you want, it does not make meaning to Me. From my childhood I have developed such a courageous heart that I am not interested in what people are saying. I rather pay attention to what God is talking to me. The Voice of God to me, that is perfect.
50.            That was why I had no problem in my ministry. You know my testimony. No matter the way it rages, I said, “No, I must go.” He thought I was crazy and indeed I was crazy. I left. As many of us that are in the Ark, we are still forming the believing minority, a remnant, chosen by election of Grace, God’s unmerited favour.
51.            Since you know you did not merit it, why should you shake your head? What if He that brought you throws you out? Where are you going to petition to?
52.            Our friend Osuagwu came to me from Abuja, I said, “My friend, why, why, why?” In his foolish and unusual way, he started fooling himself. I said, “Look, what I am saying is what I am saying…the matter is a local Church matter. If they have pardoned you, I have pardoned you. If they say they will not pardon, I will not pardon. But concerning this your money and cheque, I am not interested, I have written on that matter.”
53.            He placed some drinks, finally, he said that he was told that the pastor read my scriptures in the pulpit. I knew he was telling lies, then I sent him away. I was not prepared to enter into long discussion with him.
54.            Some of you at times come to compete with Me. Please stop it, it is not a good habit. You are exposing yourself by talking blah, blah, blah before Me.
55.            You know, I am a Police officer. Do you know that? If I want to police you, I will police you till the end. I can allow you to keep on talking, and as you keep on talking, I keep on getting something to fire questions on you. While I keep on firing questions, you will be coming out until you get yourself roped in.
56.            If you are wise and you get to the Police, let your words be few, because he is an intelligent officer, trained to get facts from you and he knows how to use your words to get you roped. Thus, when you come to them, minimize your words. I am saying it because I want you to be saved.
57.            First Corinthians chapter 9 verse 22. “To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some” KJV.
58.            That I might by all means do what? -save some. Did he say everybody? It is said that Jesus Christ died for the world. I know that very well. However, when He was praying, He said, “Father, I pray for my own. I am not praying for the world. They were dying and you gave them unto me.”
59.            I know that God is saving His own and not the world. Somebody might be thinking that there is unrighteousness in what God is doing: “How can God invite many and save some and lose some? What will I do so that God will choose me? How am I going to please God? I want to make sure that my salvation is sure.”
60.            Well, do not read like Deeper Life people (members) who are teaching “Assurance of Salvation” when their children were not saved. Who is assuring you of salvation where there is no Apostle? IT WILL TAKE AN APOSTLE (THE ANOINTED ONE, THE CHRIST OF YOUR DAY) TO ASSURE YOU OF SALVATION.
61.            Lamentation chapter 3 verse 38: “It is the Lord who helps one and harms another. LB.
62.            And does what? Harms another. And does what? Harms another. “H-A-R-M-S”. The Lord will help some and he will also harm some. Is there any unrighteousness with God? How can God help some sisters, some brothers and then harm some? Can he do that? Will that make Him to change or be unrighteous?
63.            Who is He going to help then? Who is He going to harm? Life and death are in His hands. If you know Him, happy are you. If you do not know God, you can even dig your own grave. Amen.

GOD HAS COUNTED US WORTHY PUTTING US INTO THIS MINISTRY (2)
Now, brethren, I continue. The Lord can help some. It is the Lord that helps some and he harms some. He will save some and destroy some.
2.              Jeremiah 9 verses 23-24. “The Lord says; let the wise man bask not in his wisdom nor the mighty by his might, nor the rich in his riches. Let them boast in this alone: That they truly know me, and understand that I am the Lord of justice and of righteousness whose love is steadfast; and that I love to be this way.” LB. Amen.
3.                 You see what will be your glory. Do not just glory in your riches or any other thing, glory that you know God and understand His ways, His manner of doing things and always steadfast, always abiding in His word. Understand Him very well; otherwise, you can bury yourself before your death.
4.                 John 13 verse 18: “I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled,” KJV.
5.                 I am not speaking to all of you in this matter. I know whom I have chosen that the scriptures might be fulfilled. If someone that is putting hands in the same plate with me, one day must lift up his heel against me.
6.                 John 13 verse 1: “Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end” KJV.
7.                 You see that God’s love is eternal! God cannot love you today and throw you away tomorrow. However, that does not mean that you will start bragging, being disobedient and arrogant. That I have loved you, I think I have not committed any crime, I think it is a wonderful privilege.
8.                 I expect you to reciprocate it, but where you start abusing it, my Spirit will not be pleased with you. ALTHOUGH YOU WILL NOT BE DESTROYED BUT I WILL DEBASE YOU. NOTE IT, ALTHOUGH YOU WILL NOT PERISH BUT I WILL SURELY DEBASE YOU. I WILL REMOVE YOU FROM YOUR POSITION EVEN IN MY HEART.
9.                 Let me tell you what I mean, though you may be up to one million in this faith, all of you have your positions in my heart. I was talking to our sister and that is sister Moses. I said, “Sister, we waited for you last night until seven, we could not see you, then we concluded you were no longer coming. However, I thank God that Sister Ozioma came and filled your gap.
10.            Sister said, “What? Sister Ozioma filling my gap? No, no, no, no, my gap remains there for me.” You see, it is a revelation.
11.            The Bible said, “Be very careful that no man takes away your crown. Our sister did not want anybody to take away her crown. She reacted immediately and I said, “Sister, I do not mean spiritually. Your position remains your position. But I am talking work wise.”
12.            However, somebody was given that opportunity and she ignored it. I am telling you truth. You may be given opportunity to work on things pertaining to God and you will ignore it, then you miss the reward thereof. He that called you saw many other people and called you. Not that you are Jacky, no.
13.            John 15 verse 16: “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” LB.
14.            You never chose Me for one day, I chose you that you may bear fruit and your fruit will remain. Moreover, if you know that you never chose Me, you never chose God for one day, it is God that has counted you worthy and faithful.   
15.            Who started the good work in you? It is no other person than He that called and chose you; He that counted you worthy, faithful and has put you into the ministry. He can never live to see you make shipwreck like that. He chose you because He loves you and having loved you, He will love you till the end.
16.            That is why He is always giving you a helping hand, even in your sorrowful condition. In your downtrodden estate, watch His reaction; He will not forsake you, always comforting you with comforting words.
17.            Now, understand that there is One that started the good work in you, you did not start it. If you were asked to make a choice, you would not have chosen this way. For that reason, be confident of that very truth, that He that has called me, that has started this good work in me, surely, will never live to see me perish as long as I continue with (in) Him.
18.            Philippians 2 verse 13. “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure” KJV.
19.            It is God that walketh in you both to will and to do of His own good pleasure. In other words, God can turn you round, turn you upside down, after all, you are ordinary clay in His hand. If He is your Potter and you are ordinary clay in His hand, can the clay dictate to the Potter the shape he wants to get?
20.            That is why the song writer was a wise man. Hence, he said, “Use me as it pleases you, I have given you myself, Lord, use me as you wish!” That is a wise song.
21.            Take me just as I am. Do whatsoever that seemeth right in your eyes with me; I have surrendered myself to you. No going back. I am the ordinary clay, you are the Potter.  If you did not bring me into your kingdom, I would have remained outside. Now, I am here, I am still depending on you.
22.            “For God is at work within you, helping you to want to obey him, and then helping you do what he wants.” LB.
23.            Second Timothy 1 verse 12. “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day” KJV.
24.            “That is why I am suffering here in jail and I am certainly not ashamed of it, for I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that he is able to guide safely all that I have given him until the day of his return." LB.
25.            This is a man of conviction. No matter what I pass through in this flesh, it means nothing to me. I know whom I have believed in, I know whom I have trusted in, I know whom I am following. Surely, He must keep my soul which I have entrusted into His hands in well doing.
26.            The Bible said that we have committed our souls into His hands in well doing. Knowing that He is a Faithful Creator, He is able to keep that which is committed into His hand. Whatever you commit into the hands of the Almighty is secured. No Devil, no tempter, no condition can ever take the person out of the hand of God.
27.            That’s where St. Paul rested and said, “Who can now separate us from the love of God? is it poverty? Persecution? Cruel mockery? Sickness? Even death? Nothing.
28.            Have you come to a point where you can say, I know whom I have believed? I know whom I am following. I have committed my entire self into his hand and I am sure and certain that with him on my side nothing will happen to me. I am getting saved by and by. Unless we come to this condition by faith, something remaineth somewhere.
29.            We are still marching on brethren, before I give you scriptures.
30.            Hebrews 13 verse 6: “So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me” KJV.
31.            When the Lord has done all and all in you, you have contributed basically nothing; you can then boldly say in the end, “The Lord is my Helper”.
32.            What can a man do to me since the Lord is my helper? What can the Devil do to me? I am on the Lord’s side and the Lord is on my side. When you draw near unto God, He draws near unto you. I have told you that God is always in one place.
33.            For instance, look at the pulpit, it is in the Sanctuary, if I run away from the pulpit, I am far away from the pulpit and the pulpit is far away from me. If I go closer, I am closer to the pulpit; the pulpit is equally closer to me. Did you get the message?
34.            You are the one that will walk closer to God. If you are wise, if you know the Source of your existence, all you have to do is to glue your life there; that is, if your life means anything to you. However, where you do not know, you keep on wallowing in ignorance. On that day you will say, “Had I known”.
35.            Romans 9 verse 14. “What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid” KJV.
36.            Romans 8 verse 31. “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” KJV.
37.            Exodus 33 verse 19. “And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy” KJV.
38.             “The Lord replied, “I will make my goodness pass before you, and I will announce to you the meaning of my name Jehovah, the Lord. I show kindness and mercy to anyone I want to.” LB.
39.            I WILL SHOW KINDNESS AND MERCY TO ANYONE I WANT TO, BUT IF I DO NOT WANT, NO WAY. WILL YOU KILL HIM FOR THAT? IN OTHER WORDS, IT IS NOT COMPULSORY THAT EVERYONE SHOULD BE SAVED.
40.            THUS, IF I DECIDED THAT ONLY MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY WOULD BE SAVED, IS IT A CRIME? ALL THAT ARE IN MY FAMILY BELONG TO ME AND I BELONG TO THEM. SALVATION IS A FAMILY MATTER FROM THE BEGINNING TILL TODAY. Amen.

REMAIN IN THE DOCTRINES YOU HAVE RECEIVED
We are narrowing down. If you are a man in this most holy Faith, the Bible said, that you look up to Abraham your father. If you are a woman, it says, “Look unto Sarah that begot you,” the rock from where you were hewed.
2.              The earlier you understand the rock where you were hewed, the better for you. My kindness and mercy cannot be for everybody. It cannot be for the whole world. So, thank God for that.
3.                 Romans 9 verse 15. “For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion” KJV.
4.                 Matthew 7 verses 22-23. “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out Devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” KJV.
5.                 Matthew 22 verse 14. “For many are called, but few are chosen” KJV.
6.                 Matthew 20 verse 16, “So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen” KJV.
7.                 Matthew 21 verse 43. “Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof” KJV.
8.                 Luke 13 verse 24. “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able” KJV.
9.                 Matthew 23 verse 13. “But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye shut up the kingdom of Heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in” KJV.
10.            Luke 11 verse 53. “Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered” KJV.
11.            In your private closet, think about these scriptures I have given you. Is there any unrighteousness in God? The answer is no. I thank God who has counted me worthy and faithful and has put me into this ministry.
12.            First Peter 2 verse 6: “As the scriptures express it, “See, I am sending Christ to be the carefully chosen, precious cornerstone of my Church, and I will never disappoint those who trust in him.” LB.
13.            Romans 10 verse 11. “For the scriptures tell us that no one who believes in Christ will ever be disappointed” LB.
14.            Romans 9 verse 33. “God warned them of this in the scripture when he said, “I have put a Rock in the path of the Jews, and many will stumble over him Jesus. Those who believe in him will never be disappointed” LB.
15.            Acts 15 verse 18. Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world” KJV.
16.            Romans 9 verse 23. “And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,” KJV.
17.            “And he has a right to take others, such as ourselves, who has been made as containers for the riches of his glory whether we are Jews or Gentiles, and to be kind to us so that everyone can see very great his glory is.” LB.
18.            I have shown you these scriptures so that you calm down a little. I am going to dictate scriptures that will guide you home because of time. Do not count it as offence before me. After dictating the scriptures, I will give you some other scriptures that will help somebody.
19.            Now, please, remain in the doctrines you have been taught. Continue in them, know from whom you receive these messages.
20.            Second Timothy 3 verse 14. “But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;” KJV.
21.            Second Timothy 1 verses 13 through 14. “Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us” KJV.
22.            Second Peter 3 verses 2-5. “That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming?
23.            For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the Heavens were of old, and the Earth standing out of the water and in the water:” KJV.
24.            You must continue in the things you have been taught and remaining steadfast in the Gospel of Christ which you have received.
25.            Jude 1 verse 17. “But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;” KJV.
26.            Amos 8 verses 11 through 12. “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
27.            And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it” KJV.
28.            This day, this scripture is fulfilled. Are people not running up and down today? Anywhere they hear that a great man of God is coming, they will run to there. Some go to America, all in the search of the Word of God, and they will come back empty-handed.
29.            Matthew 24 verse 45. “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his Household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. ” KJV.   
30.            John 4 verse 35. “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest” KJV.
31.            Are you taking note of the scriptures? Are they making meaning to somebody? Known unto God are all His works from the creation of the world. If you are a part of God’s love, the Bible said that all things work together for good to them that love God, and to them who are called according to his purpose. Now, that we have come to the end of almost everything, what is expected of us?
32.            First Peter chapter 4 verses 7 through 9. “The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore be earnest, thoughtful men of prayers. Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love makes up for many of your faults. Cheerfully share with those who need a home with those who need a meal or a place to stay for the night.” LB.
33.            Hebrews 10 verse 35. “Do not let this happy trust in the Lord die away, no matter what happens. Remember your reward! You need to keep on patiently doing God’s will if you want him to do for you all that he has promised.
34.            His coming will not be delayed much longer. And those whose faith has made them good in God’s sight must live by faith, trusting him in everything. Otherwise, if they shrink back, God will not have pleasure in them.” LB.
35.            Colossians chapter 3 verse 12 till the end: “Since you have been chosen by God…”
36.            Since you have been chosen by who? All of you that are hearing from me here and you know that you have been chosen by God who has counted you worthy and faithful putting you into the ministry.
37.            Who has given you this new kind of life, and because of his deep love and concern for you, you should practice tenderhearted mercy and kindness to others. Do not worry about making a good impression on them, but be ready to suffer quietly and patiently.
38.            Be gentle and ready to forgive; never hold grudges. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Most of all, let love guide your life, for then the whole Church will stay together in perfect harmony.
39.            Let the peace of heart which comes from Christ be always present in your hearts and lives, for this is your responsibility and privilege as members of his body. And Always be thankful.
40.            Remember what Christ taught and let his words enrich your lives and make you wise; teach them to each other and sing them out in psalms and hymns as spiritual songs, singing to the Lord with thankful hearts.
41.            And whatever you do or say; let it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus. And come with him into the presence of God the father, to give him your thanks.” LB.   
42.            You come with him into the Presence of God your father to give him your what? Thanks.
43.            Romans 9 verse 1. “Oh Israel, my people, oh my Jewish Brothers, how I long for you to come to Christ. My heart is heavy within me and I grieve bitterly day and night because of you.
44.            Christ knows and the Holy Spirit knows that it is no mere pretence when I say that I will be willing to be dammed forever if that would save you”. LB.
45.            “I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
46.            For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;” KJV.
47.            St. Paul was wishing that he could be put to Hellfire so that his people would be saved. That was after labouring in their midst for many years. The only thing he could see in the end was total rejection, and the people were privileged even to have Jesus Christ as their own countryman. The Bible said so.
48.            I am trying to say that it is not easy for a people that God visited to recognize their day and its own message. They always acknowledge that God visited them when the man has left the scene. But as long as he is still there with them, only few people will come to him and this scripture has fulfilled once again. I can now rightly say that this time around this message or prophecy has come to pass.
49.            Jeremiah 8 verse 20. The harvest is passed, the summer is ended and we are not saved.
50.            Now, chapter 9 verse 9. “Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!” KJV.
51.             This is the man. Who was lamenting? He saw Himself in such a hopeless condition, at the end of his ministry here on Earth; he noticed that instead of his people to believe him and get saved, they rejected him. Some even put him into a pit. The same has come to pass in our day also.
52.            Thus, we cannot say we have performed better than our forefathers. However, to you that have come to Me, I will in no wise cast away.
53.            I say, I have loved all of you with everlasting love. Now that I am going away, I am not leaving you behind, we are going together.
54.            The hour has come for us to rejoice exceedingly, having suffered together, we shall be glorified together. Within this short period that is left, be at peace with one another, avoid gossiping, avoid backbiting, do not blaspheme anybody even your enemies.
55.             Love them anyhow. Make sure there is no room for bitterness in your heart; mostly open your heart to hospitality.
56.            Finally I say, may the good Lord and God of consolation keep you faithful and from falling until the few things that are left are completely accomplished and make it possible for us to stay together in Paradise.
57.         On this note, I say remain in your sanctified estate, remain blessed in Him eternally. Amen.
