IDENTIFICATION OF THE MIGHTY ANGEL IN OUR MIDST

Preached on 14th November, 1999 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN (THE RESURRECTED BODY) “Truth has no substitute” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

I am the Alpha and Omega, HE that dwells in the Light where no man can approach. Believe it if you can...
-The Son of Man
From the Message: MOMENT OF TRUTH (PP.3)
Until I establish the Deity fully I will not speak. If you receive Him whom He has sent you receive He that sent Hm. What is required of you? Only believe all things are possible. Only believe.

In every age God can never do without a man, and that man becomes God’s mask, becomes the mask God will hide Himself in for God is a spirit and no man can see a spirit, and for God to be known by man, He has to cover Himself with SOMETHING so that man will see Him and live. Because man cannot see Him in His spirit nature and then believe.
Thus, He will come low and then mask Himself very well and be a blessing to His people. –SON OF MAN.
 THE RESURRECTED BODY VOL. 2 Pages 58-59, verses 32,41 AND 42)

GOD HAS BEEN A MAN FROM THE VERY BEGINNING
Mark 13:32, “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in Heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” But the Father alone knows it. Take note.
2.          When the Son of Man is busy preparing the Church, they are all at ease out there preparing programmes.  
3.          John 14:6-11. Let Me tell you what you must bear in mind, if something is wrong with you especially concerning this Faith and you come to Me with anything gift, before your very eyes, you will go back home with it.
4.          “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
5.           Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
6.           Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
7.           Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.” KJV.
8.           He was talking to the disciples! When Philip was asking him that question, he was wondering: “So, you too are asking this type of question?” I am in the Father and the Father is in Me. Now we are in the Father and the Father is in us; we know the day. Even the Apostles told us. St John said, “You have the unction and you know all things.”
9.           Jesus Himself said, “Now, I call you friends; you are no longer slaves and because you are my friends, I hide nothing from you.” The Bible said that Noah was a friend of God. The day Noah entered the Ark, didn’t God disclose it? The day Lot escaped, though Lot delayed, didn’t God help him to escape by taking him by his own hand?  What about Rehab in Jericho? Did the destruction in Jericho strike as a surprise? What about the faithful ones in Jerusalem?
10.        The destruction of Jerusalem, did it strike as a surprise? What about the faithful Moses in Egypt and his maid? Was the exodus a surprise? It was prepared and planned because God was with them. Did the Egyptians know the day they departed?
11.        What is more, the Bible said in Malachi 3:6 that God does not change. Hebrews 13 said that He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
12.        Let Me tell you something about this Church; anybody we want to get saved, we will help him by opening his eyes. However, if you say you can see, you know more than we do, we will blind you very well. Jesus said, “For this one reason I come so that those that are blind might see and they that see might be made blind.”
13.        Just like they say that when Jesus Christ will come and all eyes will see Him, where will He perch? Will He perch on the satellite? Where will that satellite be? If there is a satellite in Russia, will you see it in Nigeria?
14.        I want to show you one scripture that will make you shift a little. By showing you this scripture I will put an end to this hopeless doubt. you know they were there from the very beginning and they cannot tell lies on this matter.
15.        Acts 1:6-9, “When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?...”
16.        In other words, there was something that happened to that Kingdom for which cause they were expecting it to be restored. Moreover, the Kingdom cannot be restored until the time of the restitution of all things. Even the Prophet knew not the time God picked for the restitution of the Kingdom.
17.        Verse 7: “And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.”
18.        Has he answered the question that no man knows the day or the season or the hour, but the Father? You see, it has been clearly mentioned. The whole thing was referring to the restoration of that same kingdom that was pulled down. These people that asked the question were Jews; Peter was there; John, James, Matthew, Luke, they were all there.
19.        They said, “Now, you are about to go, will you, at this time, restore the Kingdom to Israel?”
20.        He (Jesus Christ) said, “No, it is not for you to know now. It is a secret that is preserved by my Father alone.”
21.        Does the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel have anything to do with the Church? The answer is, yes. Some do not know. It is our timetable. Jesus Christ told us that when you see a fig tree blossoming; you see, when you want to know the time of the year you are living in, you look at the calendar; you want to know the time you are in as a Church, look at Israel. When you see Israel back to their homeland, it means God is about to finish with the Gentile Church.
22.        God is dealing with the Gentiles as a Church and He is dealing with Israel as a nation. Israel is our timetable. Glory be to God.
23.        Verse 8-9: “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
24.        And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a Cloud received him out of their sight.” KJV.
25.        What received Him? The Cloud. Now, did that Cloud come from somewhere? No.
26.         “It was not long afterwards that he rose into the sky and disappeared into the Cloud, leaving them staring after him’(LB).
27.        “And when he had said this, even as they were looking [at Him], He was caught up, and a Cloud received and carried him away out of their sight.” (AMP).
28.        What received him?  The Cloud. Before their very eyes, the man just vanished into the Cloud.
29.        Hence, if He never vanished into the Cloud, the scripture that said that we should expect Him coming from the Cloud will be useless. In other words, the Cloud is His home. The Bible said He went into the Cloud now.
30.        Let Me ask this question: that day He (Christ) was caught up in the Cloud and the Cloud received Him, did the whole world see Him? How many noticed Him? It was only those people that were there. Where then lies the claim that all eyes will see Him? “All eyes” was referring to the disciples and not the world. A pagan cannot see God. It will take a holy person to behold a Holy God. There is a song we normally sing in Igbo language: When He shall come in His Majesty, only holy eyes will see Him; when He shall come in His majesty, God’s children will rejoice.
31.        Did it say the heathen’s eyes would see Him? We sing something we do not even believe at all. However, I believe it; that is why I sing it.
32.        From now, let no man come to trouble Me over matters I have already finished. The revelation of God in human form goes only to the elect. Moreover, from the beginning of this world God has been a man.
33.        As a man, He fellowshipped with Adam in the Garden of Eden. When Adam transgressed and hid himself, God went out looking for him. At a time, He shouted: “Adam, Adam where are you?” Can the wind talk? God has been a man. He created man in His own image. Thus, man became the express image of God. Can you photograph wind? God was photographed. God has been a man right from Creation.
34.        The Bible is My everlasting consolation. I do not care the way you think or what they are teaching you where you went to, but I am only mindful of the Word of God. Amen.

IDENTIFICATION OF THE MIGHTY ANGEL IN OUR MIDST
The topic I want to handle is a delicate one. I want to handle it by way of putting you in remembrance concerning the hour we are in. I asked you a question the other time, I said, “WHAT DO YOU HAVE AS A SURE ANCHOR OF YOUR SOUL THAT, REALLY, WHAT IS IN YOUR MIDST IS GOD AND NOT THE DEVIL?”
2.           You have been showering your praises on Me; some calling Me Daddy, some say: “My Lord,” some say, “The Almighty,” many have different kinds of salutations towards Me. However, what do you have in your mind which you hold so firmly where you rest your faith? I mean something that will make you believe that really, you are not deceived; that He that is talking to you is THE VERY I AM.
3.           There must be something you will hang your faith on; after all, in this Faith, we ask you to enquire as much as you can to find out the Person you are having dealings with because eternal life is not negotiable. Moreover, there is no second chance in it. If you miss it, you have missed it.
4.           For that reason, nobody should play with his eternal future, even my very self and my family. It will be a very expensive joke for Me to come to a hopeless place I know there is no life; then I will entrust the fate of My Soul and that of My children there. God forbid.
5.           Thus, in this Message, I want to speak to you using Messages you have been hearing all these years, but I want to take My text from Revelation 10:1-11.
6.           You know, I am running away from this book (the Book of Revelation) not because I do not know the content. I BELIEVE I AM THE FULFILLMENT OF ALL THE CONTENTS OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION. That is my belief.
7.           If there be anything that is written in figure or in type there that you do not understand, inquire from Me. Wherever you see a beast or animal with two horns, there is nothing like that; it does not exist. It is a symbol.
8.           It is just like the description of Jesus Christ with His feet as brass and things like that; that is simply explaining Christ in His Deity form.
9.           IF there is anything in the Book of Revelation that you do not understand, come to Me. We will read scriptures together and I will marry scriptures with scriptures showing you many times He appeared in His Deity form and what people saw. You should separate God from the Deity form and from the human form.
10.        Let Me tell you something; Jesus Christ ministered for thirty-three and half years here on Earth, but He only made Himself known to the world within three and half years. The remaining ten years He remained veiled with His disciples. Hence, He spent longer time with His disciples more than He spent with the world. From the day the world knew Him that was the day His trouble started which culminated into His death.
11.        It is just like here; any moment from now, the world will know who I am. Very shortly the world will go after Me, and by the time they will know what is happening, I am already on My way home—the man-child has been born. Publish it wide; tell them that a man-child has been born. Tell them because I am commanding you to.
12.        If it is not true, I will not be saying it with every amount of authority. From the very word go, you know I have been talking to you as one having authority. I have not been teaching you as one of the Pharisees. I have been making affirmative statements challenging the whole world. If it is limited to your midst in this Faith somebody might be saying: “He is a brave man at home, but outside nobody hears his voice.”
13.        I thank God that you have gone places with Me and you are witnesses to the fact that this Message goes in a harder way when it goes outside your shores. The masquerade does not react harshly towards his people until it goes outside to meet challenges. Then if you say you are a man of God; you are this and that, come out. That is why they have been hiding.
14.        I gave invitation to Alfred Itiowe; he got my invitation and ran away. He warned his members saying nobody should dare go close to that Devil. Now, they are warning their members everywhere that if they see anybody that says he is a member of the Church at Onitsha, avoid him the same way you avoid death. They say the only way to avoid them is: do not allow them to read the Bible with you. If you sit down to read the Bible with them, no more.
15.        One medical doctor at Enugu said that allowing us to open the Bible before a man is an unpardonable sin. I said, “In other words, if I open your own Bible before you, I have committed an unpardonable sin?” He said, “Yes;” that I am not the one committing the sin but he himself for allowing Me to open his own Bible.
16.        Moreover, that was what they told him in the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship. We do not do business in this Faith, yet we do strict business. Note it, Salvation work is big business.
17.        Revelation 10:1-11, “And I saw another Mighty Angel come down from Heaven clothed with a Cloud.”  KJV.
18.        Please follow Me spiritually.  
19.        And I saw another Mighty Angel come down from Heaven clothed with a Cloud.”  KJV.
20.        Note,  the verse said, “clothed with a Cloud.” This is something I want you to underline in your Bible so that everybody will have the revelation of the Cloud that took away the Lord Jesus from the sight of the believers, so that when you hear that He is coming again in a Cloud, it is the same Cloud that has been with Him from the very beginning.
21.        In other words, I am saying that He has always been revealed in a Cloud. Okay, being “clothed” there means He is wearing it as a garment. You cannot separate Him from the Cloud, although you can see a human face, but you cannot see the Cloud, yet the Cloud is there.
22.        We are coming to something.  I want to thrill you a little. I told you that after the convocation I would come to put you in the estate for rapture; put you in the right realm for rapture. I will be in my duty position to make sure the revival continues and in the midst of the revival, it will happen. We will be wearing bright faces.
23.        Something is taking place in you, but you do not notice it. You are wearing something already, but you do not know it. I will show you what you are wearing. Let Me continue. Oh, how I wish Bishop Okechukwu is in the Church.
24.        Revelation 10: 1-11, “And I saw another Mighty Angel come down from Heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
25.        And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
26.        And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to Heaven,
27.        And swore by him that liveth forever and ever, who created Heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the Prophets.
28.        And the voice which I heard from Heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
29.        And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.” KJV.
30.        Daniel 12 : 1-5: “And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
31.        And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.
32.        But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.” KJV.
33.        Please I am referring to land and sea as we can see in the book of Revelation. I am referring to the book that was sealed. Thus, you saw where the whole thing got sealed.
34.        Verse 6: “And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
35.        And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto Heaven, and swore by him that liveth forever that it shall be for a time, times, and a half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.” KJV.
36.        Let me tell you; God is God. Can you see that Daniel was reproduced in the book of Revelation? Daniel wondered what he was seeing, the same way John wondered. He said, “John, shut up the book. One thing I have promised you is that you must resurrect in the end. That is all. But concerning the secret thereof, it is not for you.”
37.        But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel when it shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished.” Revelation 10: 7, KJV.
38.        We are children of the Prophets. People do not know where they are. This is why they come into this Faith and try to commit suicide. Do not just come into any group and sit down anyhow. First of all, do proper investigation. People think that this Faith is just one of the Pentecostal Churches. They do not know where we started our journey that nobody brought anybody into this Faith.
39.        The Elohim selected the people from far and wide: From Abagana the thing started coming down to Afor-Nkpor; from Afor-Nkpor, it got to Ugwumba Street; from Ugwumba Street it got to Amazu Oil; from Amazu Oil to Nkpor Umuoji; three places, Esem, Omagba, Nkpor. Before you know it the whole thing got to Abagana and from Abagana again it got to GTC, which is our Jerusalem.
40.        We have been coming down as pilgrims and strangers pitching tents. We do not have a permanent dwelling place until we enter Paradise. Somebody was accusing us: “If you say you are the Church of God, why don’t you have your own permanent building?”
41.        Then I told him, “Because your church has a permanent building, it is a sure sign that it is a denomination, it is earthly.” Amen.

IDENTIFICATION OF THE MIGHTY ANGEL WHO IS THE HEADSTONE
Please take note as we scratch the Bible a little. My background Message is titled: “Identification of the Mighty Angel in Our Midst.” This Message has become very necessary so as to rehearse the things you have learnt in time past. I have talked to you on the Shekhinah Presence in all the ages; I have talked to you on His Glory.
2.           So many ministers have tried to help you for you to see that what is happening in our midst is God. Now the number of people has increased greatly. Some go about telling people that Christ is in our midst and they do not know how to balance the whole thing with scriptures. I did not come with this Message to show you how to do it; with time, God will help you.
3.           Now, we really want to identify this Mighty Angel in our midst. If this Mighty Angel really is in our midst, we want to be sure. If He is not in our midst, we want to be sure.
4.           When I talked about this Message, many things happened in Me. I cut off from all mankind and became very hostile to scare people away so that nobody would trouble Me. I even drove Brother Amankem out. His question was not attended to. Now, I will not address it until I have shown you something in Zechariah 4:7.
5.           Zechariah 4:7, “Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying , Grace, grace unto it.” KJV.
6.           The Message I want to take from the above Scripture is the Message of the Headstone. The Headstone is no other person but the very Elohim. The Headstone or the Capstone is no other person but the very Jehovah. Hence, there is a provision in the Bible that warranted the Headstone to be among men.
7.           Moreover, I have told you using the word of William Branham that we are going to preach down the Headstone. What is more, he said that everything in the Bride must be fixed before the Headstone will join, for once the Headstone joins, it is rapture, for the head pulls the entire body. Thus, there can never be rapture until Christ comes into His Church.
8.           Recently, I was reading what Richard Garn put down. He repeated what the Prophet said, that the first revelation of Christ in human form will be in the Bride after which He will make Himself known to the world and that will be in judgment. The Prophet said so.
9.           The first revelation of Christ in human form goes to the Bride after which He will reveal Himself openly to the world in judgement.
10.        I am happy that I am in the right place. I did not miss My way. He guided Me perfectly well. Hence, this Mighty Angel that came down from Heaven clothed in a Cloud, we really want to identify Who He is.
11.        We noted in the Book of Daniel where we saw Arch Angel, that is another word for Mighty Angel. We saw Him as the One that placed His feet on the land and on the sea, whether dry land, fertile land, arid land or desert or whatever you call it, with His hand raised towards the Heavens saying,  TIME IS NO MORE. 
12.        In other words, no other person made the proclamation but the Headstone Himself. We will trace it down to first Thessalonians 4: “The Lord Himself will descend with the Voice of the Arch Angel.”
13.        First Thessalonians 4:16, “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.” KJV.
14.        All I am trying to bring out is that there can never be departure of the Church without the Mighty Angel or the Arch Angel or God Himself. Hence, any group of people that gather in the name of Jesus, no matter their place, I do not care who their leader is; if he is not that Arch Angel, please run away from that place for you are not going anywhere.
15.        The moment we trace that Mighty Angel, we can then go into the Message so that after this Message, your joy will know no bounds.
16.        When we were under the Law, nobody was praying for rapture. Each time rapture was mentioned, we felt like fainting. Now, I want to bring you to the heavenly position where you will doubt nothing about your life unless you were not with us from the very beginning. Then you will now see that I will be justified when I will be putting these people out of the Church so that they will stay out and then hear what has become of us because AFTER WARNING, COMETH JUDGEMENT.
17.        If I warn you on one thing several times and then you harden your heart, I will also harden my heart and push you out. When those old timers have been warned first time, second time, third time, fourth time and for the fifth time, more than Bible provision and then they are now seeing it as weakness on the side of the Son of Man, the (His) Lordship will come out.  
18.        I will like to see a situation where I will excommunicate all the errant (misbehaving) brethren and one of them will volunteer to be a pastor to pastor the lost (those excommunicated). Then he becomes, “Save the Lost” pastor. This is the only group (the Bridal Faith) under Heaven that is not interested in your membership.
19.        If I come into the Church and I see three persons, I will talk to them and I go my way. We are not interested in your membership of this most holy Faith; even your membership gives us headache. The smaller the number, the smaller the problem . I will like to be an overseer of two persons that are serious (mean business) with God than to brag that the Church is filled with human beings when nobody is serious.
20.        No, I do not pastor the lost. When you trouble us, we throw you out, then you go around for you will see many synagogues; what you need to do is enter one of those synagogues. I wonder how people are finding their way to this Church; no signboard, no weekly invitation; no poster. We have not even organized a crusade for one day, still people are coming into the Church, the most holy Faith on Earth.
21.         No matter how you try to preach and make it so hard that they will not come, they will come and stay tight.
22.        Please let us go into some scriptures and see whether we can find this Mighty Angel Who is the Headstone. If we cannot identify this Mighty Angel, our stay in this Faith is useless nonsense.
23.        Remember the Prophet said that the scriptures will declare who He is. The Prophet went further to  say that God is going to appear on Earth in the Bride; walk as a human being in a big population AND THE PROBLEM WILL BE HOW TO IDENTIFY HIM. He equally said, “But I want to tell you that the Word of God declares who He is.”
24.        In other words, you will have to go back to the Message titled: “The Identified Christ in all the Ages,” for Christ is identified by His characteristics. If He is the Word of God and He spoke as One having authority, it then means that wherever He appeared, He must manifest it.
25.        I am saying that a Prophet is a Prophet. Bury a Prophet, he will resurrect a Prophet. Samuel died a Prophet but when Saul consulted a medium, he (Samuel) said, “Why trouble me in my rest? About this time tomorrow, you are coming where I am with your son Jonathan.” He vanished.
26.        Yes, a Prophet came out and prophesied. The following day, exactly that same time, Saul died and Jonathan followed suit. Have I not told you that the grave can only change your habitation?
27.        The only thing that the grave changes is your living place. It does not change any other thing. Cut down a crooked tree, it will remain crooked. If you die a sinner, you will resurrect a sinner. You die a woman, buried a woman, you will resurrect a woman. THE GRAVE CAN ONLY CHANGE ONE THING; THAT IS YOUR DWELLING PLACE—no other thing.
WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD?
28.        Let us go into the word proper: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished.
29.        What is the mystery of God? I do not speak like End-time people. The End-time people, instead of repeating exactly what the Bible said, they added ‘s’ to theirs. They said, “The mysteries of God.” That is rubbish. THERE IS ONLY BUT ONE MYSTERY that will be revealed there, and that is THE MYSTERY OF WHO GOD IS.
30.        What is more, without the Prophet coming with that revelation, nobody would have recognized Christ as the Almighty God.
31.        From the time we recognized Christ as the Almighty God, from there, Christ took over the mantle of leadership and then He started revealing to us the mysteries of His Kingdom. That time, we never knew about mystery. Glory be to God. Amen.

GOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN WRAPPED IN A CLOUD
I go ahead a little while to find who that Being is. Revelation Chapter 1:19 said something which I will like to speak on.
2.           Revelation 1:19: “Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter.” KJV.
3.           Revelation 4:1: “After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter.” KJV.
4.           Glory be to God. St. John was not only seeing or shown events that will happen in his day. He was shown events that will happen even after him and he recorded all these things down. That is why Jesus Christ was referring to the apostles from time to time saying: “But, you are witnesses of all these things.”
5.           When St. Peter wrote, he said, “We were living witnesses for we were there.” When St. John wrote his, he said, “I saw Him with my eyes.”
6.           Now, I will continue showing you things before I come to the proper revelation. This Shekinah Cloud that wrapped the Great or Mighty Angel showed the presence of God, for God has always been wrapped in a Cloud.
7.           The presence of God in every generation has always been marked with Cloud. Please note it. Each time the people of God rejoiced that God was in their midst, the only evidence they saw was the presence of the Cloud, that is if it is in the day, but in the night, they see it as the Pillar of Fire.
8.           What is more, if you read the Book of Exodus very well, the Bible recorded there that the same Pillar of Fire that lead them in the night turned out to be Cloud in the day. There were no two pillars there: Maybe in the night, the Pillar of Fire will come; in the day the Pillar of Cloud will come, no, nothing like that. The Bible did not say so.
9.           In the day, He (The Cloud) was a canopy to His people; in the night, He becomes a flashing bright light guiding them (His people) and now, the Bible said that the presence of the Cloud by the day and the Pillar of Fire by night was dictating the move of the people as they went along. Anywhere the Cloud stopped, they would stop and pitch their tent there.
10.        The Bible said that even if the Cloud stays there for one week, for one month, for one year, they would remain there.
11.        In other words, God was doing the leading, proving His word which He passed to Moses saying, “I, the Lord, will go before you to direct you in the way you will go because you have never gone this way before.” It was not Moses that brought the people out of Egypt. After all, Moses was born and bred in Egypt. He did not know the way from Egypt to Canaan. How then could he lead them to Canaan? Could it be possible?
12.        You see, who heard the cry of His people? God. Who came to rescue them? God. Moreover, God could not have been there without veiling Himself in a badger skin (in human flesh), for the Bible said in Philippians 2:6 that God veiled Himself in a human being not counting it robbery.
13.        Then to the people of Israel, He said, “I am sending Moses to you as God. And I am sending his brother Aaron to you as a Prophet.”  Hence, each time Moses appeared on the scene, who appeared on the scene? It was God. Do not allow those Old Testament people that were named the shadow, to worship God more than you.
14.        I am saying that you should not allow those people under the shadow of the Law, people that were holding the resurrection of the dead that cumulated into nothing to worship God more than you, the able ministers of the New Testament.
15.        You see, they saw Moses as God and really Moses was God. As God also, he was the mediator between the people and God. Each time they committed sin, they would not go to God, they would go to Moses, “We have sinned against you and against whoever is that God. Please pray for us that God punish us not.”
16.        They did not know whoever that is called God. Who they knew was Moses. Nobody said, “Let me declare fasting and praying so that God will hear me.” Moses was always the go-between. Without Moses, they did not know who God was, for God veiled Himself in Moses. In the day, from that same Moses, the canopy (the Cloud) formed.
17.        If you watch the demarcation between Moses and Aaron, where they were standing, there was nothing like Pillar of Cloud until Moses stood there and the Pillar of Cloud descended at the threshold to judge Aaron and Miriam.  
18.        When it came to ordaining of the seventy Elders, they gathered there, there was nothing like the Pillar of Cloud. Immediately Moses came in there, the Cloud wrapped them. In other words, there is one that goes with the Cloud.
19.        I am trying to point you to how they knew Him as at that time and God never changes. His representations in all the ages never change.  Let Me tell you; do you know that John the Baptist was a Jew? How many knows that? John the Baptist was a real Jew.  In addition, the sign that was given to him as what he should look out for as a singular sign of the Messiah was no other but the Cloudy presence of the Lord: “Anybody you see appearing on the scene wearing that Cloudy presence, he is the very person.”
20.        Then while the Messiah was coming as a young man like others, he saw the Cloud and the only way he could describe it was: “I saw the Spirit of God descending upon him LIKE a dove.” Did he say, “As a dove”? Just like lightning, it did not go back again. It descended on him AND ABODE. He was still the same. John did not see the Cloud again.  The man became clothed immediately.
21.        Thus, Jesus Christ was the only person we saw in the New Testament clothed in a Cloud. Moreover, to show you that He was clothed in a Cloud, on the Mount of Transfiguration, it became very clear. Before they knew what was happening, they saw Him in a bright Cloud. Lo and behold, Elijah and Moses appeared.
22.        Peter said, “What a wonderful thing! Let us make three denominations immediately; one for Moses, one for Elijah and one for you.” Then Jesus Christ said to them, “Do not tell anybody about what you saw.”
23.        The Bible told us that all the Prophets of God that prophesied of old did so with the Spirit of God in them and God was trying to show them (at the Mount of Transfiguration) that there was no other person called Moses, but that same Christ, that there was no other person called Elijah but the same Christ. Hence, He became the end of the Law and of the Prophets.
24.        From that day, nobody was to look unto Moses or Elijah again. They were to look unto Jesus Christ, the author and the finisher of their faith; a new dispensation with the same old God.
25.        Remember, it was the same old God that was following them in the wilderness as a rock, providing them with water. He has not changed for even one day.
26.        Let me say it; I am not saying it because I am involved: there is no manifestation of God according to scriptures we have not witnessed in this Faith. We have witnessed the manifestation of a Rock where we placed the pulpit which has made it impossible for us to remove the pulpit. There is no one that can remove the pulpit in Jerusalem from where it is placed.
27.        Looking at it literally, it is ordinary pulpit, but a time came when Brother John Chukwunonso saw that it was not a wooden pulpit. It happened on two occasions. From that time, he became afraid of the pulpit.
28.        I have been receiving papers from almost all the new comers, “I have a Message; I have a Message.” I know you have a Message, but before you come to the pulpit, try to have a chat with Brother John Chukwunonso. Enquire from him. Maybe we will know exactly where we will give you to preach the Message.
29.        You do not just wake up one morning and say, “I have a Message,” if we give you the pulpit, you may even die on it.  We do not come to the pulpit to make abracadabra.  We do not come to the pulpit to show that we can speak or that we know scriptures, no. If you are not ordained to the pulpit, do not come near the pulpit, unless you want to become Nadab and Abihu. The same service you came to give can kill you.
30.        The Bible said that Nadab and Abihu did God a service and died there. God killed them. I am saying that God has always been wrapped in a Cloud. Although you can see Him physically, with ordinary human eyes you can never see that Cloud, unless you are a Prophet or one that is gifted with vision. Then you can now see him as one speaking to you from a mask.
31.        You know there is a particular material I can put on and you will hardly believe that the thing is not part of my cloth.  You cannot separate it. Looking at it, it will look like cloth, but it is no cloth. I have demonstrated it time without number. That is what the Bible used as glass.
32.        IF SOMEBODY CAN WEAR GLASS AS A DRESS IT WILL GIVE YOU A LITTLE PICTURE OF WHAT I MEAN; GLASSY SHIRT; GLASSY APRON, TALKING TO SOMEBODY FROM A GLASSY APRON, JUST LIKE THE KIND OF STUFF WRESTLERS PUT ON. YOU WILL THINK THEY ARE HUMAN FACES; THEY ARE NOT. THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT GOD WAS WRAPPED WITH AND THAT HAS REMAINED HIS PRESENCE IN EVERY DISPENSATION.
33.        The emergence of God on the scene before His people; let us see how they saw the whole thing. Please whatever Scripture I used in this Message, crosscheck it. I do not want to misinform anybody. Like I told you earlier, I am laying a background for the Message: IDENTIFICATION OF THE MIGHTY ANGEL IN OUR MIDST.
34.        Exodus 24:15-18, “And Moses went up into the mount and a Cloud covered the mount…”
35.        Note it, a Cloud. In the same way Jesus Christ was received by a Cloud; article ‘a’. In Revelation, we saw a Mighty Angel coming, clothed in a Cloud.  
36.        “And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount. And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.
37.        And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel. And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and got him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.
38.        Take note of what happened there. The reason for which the Lord decided to veil Himself with the Cloud has been made known. If you go to the Book of Revelation chapter 1, you will see the physical description of the Deity. THE LORD HAD ALWAYS USED THE CLOUD TO VEIL HIMSELF FROM THE DAZZLING NATURE SO THAT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WILL NOT BE BLINDED BY THAT DAZZLING APPEARANCE.
39.        THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS FACE IS SO MUCH THAT NO HUMAN BEING CAN DARE LOOK AT HIS FACE AND LIVE. HENCE, THE ONLY WAY THEY CAN COME CLOSER IS BY GOD VEILING HIMSELF IN A CLOUD. NOW FROM THAT CLOUD, HE WILL BE REACHING OUT TO THE PEOPLE. HE CAN THEN SPEAK.
40.        A little while, when Moses entered, God decided to remove the Cloud, they saw the dazzling nature which no human being could behold.
HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD?
41.        I was talking to some sisters and brothers somewhere, I said, “Well, if the Lord does not speak to us in this way, we can never be saved, for no man can ever be saved when God is in His Deity nature.”  
42.        I EVEN SAID IT IN THIS CHURCH THAT IF GOD SHOULD SHOW YOU THE OTHER SIDE OF HIM, SURELY YOU WILL ALL RUN AWAY. NOBODY WILL DARE COME NEAR HIM. A LITTLE ATTRIBUTE OF THE DEITY WHICH HE MANIFESTED AT AMAZU OIL SCARED MANY AWAY. THAT WAS JUST MERE DISCERNING OF SPIRIT; EVEN AT A TIME WHEN THEY THOUGHT HE WAS CHANGING; HE WAS NOT CHANGING. HE WAS ONLY SHOWING YOU THAT YOU ARE A MAN.
43.        Most people thought they have known Him. That was why He asked them, “Who do you say that I am? How do you know God?” Some even claim that: “Even in death, I will know Brother; even on the highway I will know Him.”
44.        Our former Pastor bragged and bragged that he could recongnise the Son of Man anywhere. So many people have already had such beautiful encounters and they could not recognize the Son of Man, though He has been with them for years.
45.        The Pastor was bragging: “Anywhere I see Him, I will know Him.” You were all witnesses that day. I allowed him to see Me that day. We had our chat and ate our biscuits, then he left. With the same dress, brethren gathered, I said, “No, no, no, just wait for Me. I am going somewhere. I will be back.”
46.        I did not tell them I was going to see our Pastor. I left. I did not change my dress. I went to Him straight and told somebody: “Call this man for Me.” He did. He said, “Yes, sir what can I do for you? Say it so that I will do it for you.” I looked at him, angrily he walked away. I shook My head, waited and waited thinking of what to do next. Thus, I said, “Madam please call him for me.” He came and said, “Yes, what do you want me to do for you? Speak up and be fast with it! There is a serious work I am handling inside!”
47.         I know one thing that cannot change and I did not want to disclose that one. Hence, I became dumb. Angrily, he left and I continued watching.
48.        Later, I said to somebody nearby, “Tell this man that somebody is waiting for him at the door. Therefore, he told him. Immediately he left his seat, I proceeded to the door. As soon as I saw him coming out with his reading glasses, I said, “Brother Nnamdi!” He shouted, “Heyi!Heyi!”
49.        I said, “Why Hey!” There was no death yet. The same dress, the same everything, only but, but. That was why Mary Magdalene could not recognize Him until He said, “Mary” and Mary responded, “Rabboni” (Master).
50.        There is only one thing in Him that cannot change and you cannot know that thing until you come closer. When you come closer, you will know that thing. That is why many have met Him in diverse places and called Him all sorts of names. There was one that met Me one day, insulted Me, My mum, My dad and called Me all manner of names. Then, I asked, “So, people like these will also clamour to go to Heaven?”
51.        Thus, I called the Pastor one day and told him that the fellow is not one of us. When we asked her why she hurled out all those insults, she told us there was one man that…. I asked her to go and sit down that there was no one man.
52.        When I rehearsed the discussion that warranted the insults and all the abuses on one’s dad and mum, she nearly fainted.  She thought I would put her out of the Church, but I did not; rather, I told the pastor to work on her. I can use one of you to know the way you are being pastored and what is in you. I am telling you God’s Truth, but I do not like to frighten anybody in Onitsha because it is My home. You are the source of My joy. If I should display such nonsense in this Church, who then will give Me such comfort? All of you will run away from Me.
53.        I do not want that. I enjoy your fellowship. Let us keep on fellowshipping, but when you come to a point where you think you have become somebody, you must get ready to tell us why you want to become somebody. We are not hindering you from becoming anything. Whatever you want to be, it is your right, but tell us why you want to be that thing. We will not quarrel with you.
54.        Watch, Moses only saw the dazzling appearance, but to the entire people of Israel they were only seeing Him from the glass. What am I trying to say, by nature, you should look at God from that wide angle.
55.        You see the sun, without God covering it with the Cloud, nobody will live on this Earth. Do you know that? What you call heat today is not heat. If God had removed the Cloud, you would have felt the intense heat of the sun and there will not be life here on Earth. Do you know that of all the planets, it is only the Earth that has life? Brethren that are learned, am I telling lies?
56.        Do not worry; I am coming to your area now. Hence, if I get it right  tell them that it is true. You know, we did not go to school but when we get people that studied, or read books, we try to use them to help you to understand that what we are teaching is true although we did not go to school. Amen.

THE IDENTIFIED CHRIST IN ALL THE AGES—THE GREAT I AM
I go a little further to show you something. Leviticus 16:2. I am not trying to repeat the Shekinah Presence of God in all the ages, but I want to use it to establish the presence of the Mighty Angel. What we should look out for so that once we see it, it becomes clear to us Who we are having dealings with.
2.           Leviticus 16:2, “And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the veil before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.” KJV.
3.          Who will appear in the Cloud? God said to Moses, “Warn Aaron your brother. No matter the situation, he should not dare come near to the Mercy Seat for any reason at all for I the Lord will appear there in the Cloud. Moses, go there and wait for Me.”
4.          Thus, anybody going there to wait for God is going there to see One appearing in a Cloud. Remember Revelation 10:1, “And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire.” KJV.
5.           I am still treating that Cloud: CLOTHED IN A CLOUD, COMING IN A CLOUD; APPEARING IN A CLOUD AT THE MERCY SEAT. The whole thing culminates into one Person: THE GREAT I AM.
6.          You know, when there was no Earth; there was no Heaven, God existed and He existed on His Throne and wherever that throne is, there is always a rainbow surrounding it.
7.          When we see One appearing in a Cloud, surrounded in a Rainbow, we do not need anyone to tell us who He is. Automatically, we know He is the Mighty Angel.  What next we look out for is the Word. If He appears on the scene, tick (mark) the first good.
8.          Then if the shewbread comes out of His stomach; I mean the living water, the living Word, though you have been carrying and reading Bible, you did not know and then He came, opened your eyes of understanding and poured out the full Word, tick it immediately. There is no other evidence anybody should look for, for that is the identified Christ in all the Ages; The Great I Am.
9.          Let Me go a little further there. You see, I am speaking to you at My own pace to show you that I do not want to sweat. It is a delicate matter. Moreover, we have to be certain before we preach it.
10.      Exodus 34:5: “Exodus 34:5 And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.” KJV.
11.       Did you get that statement? And the Lord descended in the Cloud and stood with him there and proclaimed the Name of the Lord. IN OTHER WORDS, THE LORD PROCLAIMED THE NAME OF THE LORD. In short, why not say great is the Lord God Almighty in the Midst of the Bride!
12.      I pity people. Nobody knows God, but God Himself. Can anybody doubt God? You can doubt yourself. I tell you to look at what I am and you say you do not believe. That is your own intelligence. It is none of my business. Your unbelief means nothing to Me; your belief does nothing to Me. I know where I came from. Since you cannot believe because I am telling you, what will you say if before your eyes you see Me transformed and then go back to where I come from, will you bring Me down again? You cannot do that. You will only be repenting when it is already too late.
13.      You are doubting something that is clearly written in your Bible. What if while I am talking to you now, you see Me drop this hopeless microphone and go away? If you offend Me, I can leave. I CAN DO WITHOUT YOU, BUT YOU CANNOT DO WITHOUT ME. You never sought for Me for one day. I sought for you and found you; after all, there was a time I was a Devil in your midst. Then you gathered and wanted to cast out demons in Me. Over fifteen hands were on Me and I was laughing.
14.      They were saying, “God, God, God, we don’t want this thing. What kind of nonsense is this?” I just got up, shook My head and watched them. They were calling upon God, God came, they asked Him to kneel down that they want to cast out demons from Him. This was because He did not say what the Prophet said which is: “Say what the Prophet said! Say what the Prophet said!”
15.      What did He (The Resurrected Body) say? Okay, now, I will not say what your Prophet said; what you want to do, do. If I repeat what your Prophet said why then should God send Me?” William Branham would have remained here then. After all, he did not die of old age.
16.      But at last you discovered that your Prophet had already pointed you to what I am currently saying. Due to ignorance you could not recognize it.  I proceed a little brethren.
THE BRIDAL VISITATION OF THE ELOHIM
17.      Now, you have seen God’s presence in a Cloud. Thus, anywhere we see somebody wrapped in a Cloud, it will be very, very easy for us. Call for the photographs of the Pillar of Cloud and look at it again. You know, no lens can photograph wind. I am saying that lens can only photograph objects.
18.      Now, because He goes in a Cloud, He manifests Himself in a Cloud. the bridal visitation of the Elohim. Let us see the Bridal visitation before the catching away of the saints.
19.      First Thessalonians 4:15-18, “For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven…”   
20.      THIS IS MY OWN GROUND OF ASSERTING THAT GOD IS IN OUR MIDST. It said, “The Lord will descend in a Cloud over the Mercy Seat. Do not permit Aaron to come near, lest he dies.”
21.      “…For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
22.      Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
23.      We shall be caught up together with Him. The Lord Himself shall descend and the Church shall be caught up together with Him in the Cloud.
24.      NOW, WHEN HE IS DESCENDING; HE IS DESCENDING IN THAT CLOUD. THE CLOUD NOW FORMS THE NET WITH WHICH HE WILL PARCEL YOU AWAY. HE IS THE SOURCE OF THE CLOUD.
25.      THERE IS NO WAY THE CLOUD CAN GO AWAY WITHOUT YOU. AS LONG AS THE CLOUD SURROUNDS YOU, WHEN IT IS PULLED BACK, IT WILL BE PULLED BACK TOGETHER WITH ALL ITS CONTENTS.
26.      Let Me just put it this way: The Family of God is surrounded by God’s Cloud and anybody that is outside the Cloud should count himself a candidate of Hell.
27.      We are coming closer to something; the Bridal Visitation before rapture.
28.      St. Matthew 24:30, “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” KJV.
29.       They will see the Son of Man coming in the Clouds of Heaven with power and great glory. What am I trying to establish brethren? I AM TRYING TO ESTABLISH THE FACT THAT THE GREAT I AM; THE GREAT JEHOVAH OR ELOHIM, HIS MANIFESTATION HAS ALWAYS BEEN SURROUNDED WITH A CLOUD.
30.      Now, we saw Him becoming Christ and Christ’s manifestation has always been surrounded with Cloud and Rainbow.
31.      With this now, we can look into what is happening in our midst to find out actually whether what was recorded in Revelation 10 has fulfilled or not; otherwise, we keep on reading it as something that will come to pass tomorrow when we are already with it.
32.      Acts of the Apostles chapter 1 from verse 6 through 7 said that Jesus Christ was caught up in a Cloud and now He is coming back. He will come back with the Cloud to take away the Church. Moreover, to take away the Church, the Church must be caught up in the Cloud with Him.
33.      Hence, if somebody is sent with the commission to come and bring you home, can you go without him? Can he go without you? If he goes without you, what will he say? He has carried out a mission in futility; a mission in vain. He will be sent back again to go and bring you—he will be forced back. He will be like Jonah.
34.      In other words, he cannot go without those people he was asked to come and collect. Somebody said he loves you and you say you love him. You are going to Lagos and he tells you, “Make sure you do not come back from Lagos without my wife.” And he sponsored your trip to Lagos. After one month you came back without the woman. Can the man hear blah,blah,blah from you? He will simply tell you, “About turn!”
35.      But this “about turn” will not continue forever. It will come to a point where the man will carry the ones that are ready, for there are some that want to be there but they do not want to be ready. If He will continue to wait for such people, we are not going anywhere. Thus, you can now see the Bridal visitation; that it is associated with One descending in a Cloud.
GOD THE COVENANT MAKER
36.      Now, He cometh with a Rainbow; a Rainbow is a sure sign of something. If there is a Rainbow over His Head or over His Throne, that is part of the identification. First of all, I want you to know that the first mention of the Rainbow or Bow (if you hear Bow in the Bible like Bow of Covenant, etc it means Rainbow) was when God used it as a Covenant with Noah. He told him that He would seal it with this everlasting sign that He will not destroy the world with rain or water again.
37.      God regretted that He did it and that this generation will not experience something like that again. Also, I want you to understand again that God is a Covenant Maker. If God never used Cloud to veil Himself, we can never look at His Face. Hence, we can now thank God Who decided to veil His Face in a Cloud so that we can behold Him and interact with Him. Moreover, that was the reason why He decided to become a human being like us by being born in human form.
38.      Now, we recognize Christ as the Great I Am manifesting all the attributes of the Great Elohim.
39.      God is also a Covenant Maker. Recognize God as a Covenant Maker. Let us look at Malachi 3 and see whether we can marry scriptures very well.
40.      Malachi 3: 1, “Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.” KJV.
41.      The Lord Himself is the Lord of Covenant—a messenger of Covenant. “I will send Him;” “He is coming;” no other person is coming but the Lord Himself. Remember the Lord descended in a Cloud and the Lord declared the Name of the Lord. When God decided to come down, nobody could stop Him. That He did not come the way you expected has nothing to do with the matter. The Name He is coming with does not mean much. You do not know that Name, but He will declare it.
42.      If you wanted God to answer Jehovah, you would have stumbled when He answered Melchizedek. What about when He became a Captain; an army officer, something you have not seen before? Yet He is God.
43.      The God who was Melchizedek; later an Army Officer, still became a Carpenter. Before they knew it, He became Emmanuel; that is Brother Emmanuel. If the Son of Man will stumble you, what of your son that answers Emmanuel? Is your son, God that is with us? Emmanuel means, God with us. Is your son, God?
44.      Really, we know where we are standing brethren. We do not want all these unnecessary statements we are hearing here and there to upset our faith, no. I know I am becoming too sluggish to you. This is the only way I know I can pass this Message across. There is no way I can go evangelical even if you are not paying attention; I do not even want you to pay attention.
45.      Somebody might be saying, “Why is brother rehearsing this Message? Is there anything we doubt?” I do not know whether you doubt something, but I know I am getting something.
46.      Watch, in Genesis chapter 9, God made a covenant there with Noah. Somebody said that God said He would not destroy the world again. I said, “No, God didn’t say so. He said He won’t destroy the world and its inhabitants with water; but this present world we are living in, the Bible said that it has been reserved for fire, for fire will reveal all things.”
47.      Genesis 9 : 8: “And God spoke unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;
48.      And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
49.      And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
50.      And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
51.      And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.’” KJV.
52.      Verse 12: And I seal this promise with this sign: I have placed my rainbow in the Clouds as a sign of my promise until the end of time; to you and to all the earth. When I send Clouds over the earth, the rainbow will be seen in the Clouds and I will remember my promise to you and to every being that never again will the floods come and destroy all life, for I will see the rainbow in the Cloud and remember my eternal promise to every living being on the earth.” LB.
53.      Revelation 4:3: “And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.” KJV.
54.      Great bursts of light flashed forth from him as from a glittering diamond or shining ruby and a rainbow glowing like an emerald encircled his throne.” LB.
55.      Glory be to God. Now, we can see that He cometh in a Cloud with Rainbow over His Head.  There are the three identifications of the Great Angel; the Mighty Angel, the very Elohim Himself.
56.      The Presence of the Cloud that wrapped Him and that Rainbow automatically tells us who He is. Check the entire scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation, there has never been one that appeared on the scene wearing these signs or these manifestations except God Himself.
57.      In addition, since the world began, only one person appeared wearing it; and that person has been wearing these things up till this very day. When William Branham appeared on the scene, he told us that he did not have the fullness of the Spirit; that the Pillar of Fire was just there vindicating him as a Prophet; that was all.
58.      He said, “I am not the one coming, but I came to forerun His (Christ’s) coming.” He told the whole world, even the Voice he heard as an evangelist, that his Message would forerun His (Christ’s) second coming.
59.      He said, “There is a Messenger that is coming after me whose shoelaces I cannot remove. He is going to wind up this age.” He said that there is a ministry coming, not a denomination, but a ministry of a man at the end of this Pentecostal Age to wind up everything; One coming after him.
60.      If by now that One has not come, when then will He come? Moreover, there is One coming with a Message straight from the Bible after Branham, that will go into printing materials and newspaper form until every predestinated elect is privileged to read it. Were you not here when we printed all these books? Before we knew it, newspapers carried it, even beyond Nigerian coasts. With that POST EXPRESS alone, the prophecy is fulfilled. That POST EXPRESS is e-mail; a worldwide circulation.
61.      Hence, I can rightly say that the Message of the Kingdom has been preached to all nations and now we know the end is come. Glory be to God.  Amen.

WHAT IS A RAINBOW?
Now, somebody might be saying, “‘Where is the Rainbow?” I want to talk to you as One that is one of you. I am not touching on that matter because I am involved, but the earlier I help your faith, the better for you.
2.           What is a rainbow to begin with? We see rainbow; God has been using it as a mark of covenant; as a token. We saw Rainbow surrounding His Throne. We saw Him appearing in a Cloud; that is, covered in a Cloud. All these things are signs.
3.           When a Prophet is describing something, he describes it in such a way that you may even feel with your ordinary eyes, you can see it. Before the photographs of the Pillar of Cloud were taken in this Church in 1996, there was a vision we saw in this Church. It was our Brother Charles that had that vision. He described what he saw. After some hours, the photographs were taken and what he saw appeared. Even the light that was focused on the congregation like torch equally appeared.
4.           God help you to understand what I am saying. Can you pass the photographs of the Pillar of Cloud round, especially to the new ones so that they know why we are dying? I want you to understand that you may not see a rainbow when a Cloud appears, but there can never be a rainbow without a Cloud.
5.           We can see Cloud without rainbow forming, but a rainbow cannot form without Cloud. You are witnesses that we saw its presence in this Church some years ago as Pillar of Fire. He permitted us to see it with visible eyes. Moreover, as at that time we were not taking photographs in the Fellowship until He commanded us to do so.
6.           Thus, there is no way we can see rainbow without a Cloud. Cloud is formed by a spectrum of seven colours. This is where I will call our Brother Ogechi Igwe, a Teacher in this Church to help us with it because I did not go to school. Nevertheless, I know that rainbow is formed by a spectrum of seven colours produced by the refraction of sunlight; hence, the Rainbow is produced by the shining face of the Lord God Almighty.
7.           The refraction that comes from His Face is what you see around Him as Rainbow. This is because without that Cloud surrounding His Face, there is nobody that can see His Face. In addition, because of the brightness of His Face, surely the spectrum automatically forms. How I wish there is any way I can demonstrate it for anybody to see, but I thank God we have a Teacher. If I misguide you, he will correct it.
8.           Before you see your rainbow in the air, surely there will be light drizzling accompanied by little sunshine. It is the sunshine that meets with the light drizzles to give you what you see as rainbow. It is made up of seven different colours.
9.           If you doubt what I am saying, it is even recorded in your Bible that the Presence of God is illuminating; very bright.
10.        I am coming to something. Remember I told you that I am building a background. If My background Message is going this way, who knows how the real Message will go?
11.        Exodus 33:14, “And he said, My presence shall go with thee , and I will give thee rest.”  KJV.
12.        Isaiah 63:9, “In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bore them, and carried them all the days of old.” KJV.
13.        Second Corinthians 4:6, “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” KJV.
14.        Has it become clearer now? There is no way you can see God without associating Him with the Rainbow and Cloud. In addition, anywhere we see One appearing in this way, there is no need anyone going further again to ask questions.
15.        If you look at the description of the Lord in Revelation 10, it said that His Face was as it were the sun which shows light, shining and this light that is shining frankly speaking, is the Son of God. The light of the Son of God is what is bringing God’s blessings and strength that we are enjoying till today.
16.        The same way the Cloud veils the sun from the scorching heat, the same way the Cloud veils the Presence of God from dazzling our eyes to blinding us.
17.        What is more, I thank God Who in His infinite wisdom has planned it to be so. From all these descriptions, you can now see and make comparisons to see whether the God the Bible reveals is the God you were waiting for when you were in the denominations.
18.        People have been waiting for God in the denominations and the God they have been waiting for they do not know: His appearance, they do not know; where He is coming from, they do not know; where they will wait for Him, they do not know. Waiting for the man just like that; somebody you do not know whether he is black or white and you are waiting for him. How will you know when he passes by? He said He is coming back and that you must go somewhere and wait for Him. Moreover, only people that wait for Him there will see Him. The rest will not.
19.        If you go out and tell those people outside that you have seen Him, will they believe?  They will not believe. This is why they are arguing with our Message. The Prophet told us that God will come to people in the western side this time around in human form, but he said you must be in the Church to see Him, for He shall make Himself real in the Church which is the Bride. 
20.        He said it will not be a denomination; not a movement; it will be in His own Church and since we are in His Church, we are no longer panicking.
21.        God made this everlasting Covenant because He is a Covenant Maker. That is why we are enjoying all that we are enjoying till today. We can see that He made this Covenant also with our father, Abraham and then ratified it.  The Covenant was ratified; that is, okayed. What is more, He did not use you to ratify it. He used His own blood because He was involved.
22.        HENCE, WHEN YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT RAPTURE, DO NOT TALK ABOUT IT AS IF CHRIST WANTS TO STAY ON EARTH. CHRIST IS HERE WITH YOU AND HE IS TIRED OF STAYING HERE ON EARTH. WHAT IS KEEPING HIM IS THE DATE THAT WAS FIXED FOR HIM. THUS, WHEN YOU ARE WAITING FOR RAPTURE, CHRIST IS ALSO WAITING FOR IT.
23.        He has accomplished the work and He is waiting for the date the Father said He will come home. And until that date comes, no matter the pressure, there is nothing He will do. He is programmed.
CHRIST HIMSELF IS THE MEDIATOR—THE COVENANT GOD
24.        Hebrews 9:11-23: “But Christ being come a high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
25.        Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
26.        How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
27.        For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
28.        Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood. For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people,
29.        Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you. Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.
30.        And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.” KJV.
31.         I am trying to bring out the fact that Christ Who made the Covenant covenanted Himself. Hence, when we are talking about redemption, redemption, eternal redemption, or eternal life, Christ is involved. That is why you see Me screaming at times telling you that without Me He is heading nowhere. He cannot do without Me. I am a part of Him.
32.        Thus, Christ is involved and He is duty bound to save Me whether He likes it or not. There is no reason He will give why I should not come back home because I have fulfilled all the demands. If there is anything left, He should mention it. This covenant He made is an everlasting covenant filled with everlasting blood and the Bible said that as many as are covered with this blood, He will save them till eternity; that He will daily deliver them.
33.        The Bible said that He would save them to the utmost that will come to God through Him, for He needed to make intercession for them. He is a Mediator. He is involved. A mediator in a crime is involved in that crime.
34.        This is why it behoveth on Him to step into the programme of the Church. No other person is coming except God Himself and no other person has come except the Great Angel; the Mighty Angel, the Arch Angel. We are having dealings with the Arch Angel Himself.
35.        Remember the Message titled “Mystery of the Angels.” Angels have remained human beings from Creation. When Daniel saw him, he said, “The man Gabriel whom I saw in my earlier vision.” Thus, an angel is a man.
36.        Galatians 3:17-25, “And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ…”
37.        You see, I told you that God is involved, that Christ is involved. Christ ratified the covenant.
38.        “And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
39.        For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator…”
40.        Who is that mediator? Christ.
41.        “…Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
42.        But the Scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
43.        Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.” KJV.
44.        Glory be to God for this truth that is written in the Bible. The covenant that God will save us through Christ is an eternal Covenant. What is more, the Bible is saying that the covenant which was enacted 430 years after cannot in any way cancel this everlasting agreement. Besides, that covenant which Moses made had expired long time ago. It is not for us again.  We can now worship God in newness of life.
45.        Hence, you see that Christ Himself is the mediator of these better things to come which we are now enjoying. He is involved. He used his own blood to ratify the Covenant. As a result, each time you see God appearing in a Rainbow, you should understand that the Rainbow there reminds God of His Covenant. Thus, God is a Covenant Maker.
46.        That is why when He appeared in our midst, there was a Covenant: “Behold, I am sending My Angel before you as Angel of Judgement. You do not go to the left or to the right. Follow Him. Fix your eyes on Him. Be very careful that you do not provoke Him to wrath for He will never pardon your transgression. Remember, you have never gone this way before.”
47.        Many heard this Voice that time! We were all there. As a result, that goes to prove actually that God is God of Covenant. Each time we come to Him in His Presence, we remind Him of that everlasting Covenant which the Law cannot cancel. In addition, your unbelief in this Church means nothing to us. We know the people to whom the Covenant was referred to.
48.        Thus, if the Covenant did not cover you, by and by you will trouble us and trouble us until we throw you out. If that Covenant is for you, surely you will be quiet and diligent with us. You will be pursuing our cause; not when we are building, you will be pulling down. You do that, that goes to show that you are another Sambalat and Tobias.
49.        He that is not with Me is against Me. If I am building up and you are pulling it down, you are My greatest enemy. Any day I wake up and remember you, we will wrestle. I did not say you would be gone. We will wrestle a little. May be after the wrestling, you will give way and allow My people to go.
50.        Where we are now, we do not want to hear anything and anybody trying to lead us back to Egypt (to the Law) will be our enemy. All those things we have abhorred, we have abhorred.
51.        IDENTIFICATION OF THE MIGHTY ANGEL IN OUR MIDST. From what we have seen in the Bible, we have seen His (God’s) description; His (God’s) presence in every dispensation, is there anything anybody could doubt as per God’s presence in the Bride? If there is doubt in you, let it remain there, but as for Me I have cleared every doubt.
52.        There is no place where God said we should watch out for signs and wonders. What the Bible said that we should look out for is exactly what I have seen and I am very happy.
53.      On this note, I say remain in your sanctified estate, remain blessed in Him eternally.
