 Preached on 12th January 1997 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN (THE LAMINATED HUMAN BEING) “Truth has no substitute” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

As you remain in the Message you have received steadfast, unmovable, surely, “That Glorious Day,” you will never say, “Had I known.” You will never regret getting yourself acquainted with Brother Peter Odoemena . On that Day when this life is over, then you will know that I am HE!

-SON OF MAN
      From the Message: {AS I THOUGHT ON MY WAYS (2). PP. 3}
Do you know that until this very moment nobody has ever succeeded in entering that city (Paradise)? Too many people have made too many attempts, it is not of my own making, it is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our sight.
Yes, all angels have made several attempts, prophets made attempts to enter that city but it behooves on Him, the Resurrected Body to come and then break through. If He had refused to come in person, no human being born of a woman would ever enter that city gate. –SON OF MAN.

THE HOUR AND POWER OF DARKNESS
You are really blessed brethren. I told you some years ago that though various governments may come up at a time to give you the impression that each year will be better than the preceding year; no, never, never. There can never be a government that will change the situation again because it is a global problem.
2.           Thus we are expecting the worse. It is going to be worse by government pronouncement. The budget would be delayed by the Head of State of Nigeria for a reason. Yet in spite of the budget, every prediction will fail the whole nation.
3.           It will come to the point where the government of all the states will be confused about the whole situation. The Head of State will even be looking for somebody he will hand over to but nobody will volunteer to take the mantle of leadership. The soldiers are tired of making coup because nobody can grabble with the problem of the nation anymore.
4.           The World Bank, IMF, UNDP, UNO, ECOWAS and the rest of them, such as European Free Trade Association, European Economic Community, all will put their heads together to see if there will be a solution to the global problem but they will all fail. All monitory policies will fail. The various attempts by various governments to standardize the value of their currencies will fail them also.
5.           The Nigeria situation will draw the whole masses into perpetual suffering. Note, you will notice one peculiar feature: money will not be easy to get. Money will be very difficult to come by. For you to get one Naira, you will suffer too much.
6.           Thus, there will be the government attempt to normalize prices and then restore the value of Naira, yet it will fail. Watch out for mass retrenchment of workers by the federal government and state government.
7.           Heads will roll and for that reason crime rate will increase. Crime rate will be so high that government will even think of giving them suspended sentence. In other words, some will be having their sentence in their home thus; every Friday or Saturday they will be going to the prison yard and then come back on Monday morning.
8.           They will try to devise many ways of punishing offenders; thus, killing will be rampant. The Police will be tired, the Army will be tired. Nobody will have the strength because there will be a very high rate of lawlessness on every side. Many families will break down. A lot of families will break down because of lack of means of livelihood. Life will become so unbearable that many wives will depart from their husbands and run back to their parents, yet the solution is not there.
9.           Brethren, as children of God, remember the hand of God is in it. Do not murmur, do not complain. Many of the stars will fall down. All that have been feeding themselves very well in time past will find it difficult to eat.
10.        Even some will pack away from flats and will be looking for two rooms; some will be looking for one room. Some will leave the township and go back to the village. However, we shall not be the worst hit.
11.        Traders will regret trading. Students will lament. We do not talk of jobs again for the picture is very clear: Graduates will now be selling crayfish if they must do something; or else they will stay with their parents without jobs. Job will not be easy for young graduates. Talk of strike and lockout; it will be the talk of the day.
12.         In the Universities, they will not be left out, both their lecturers. The health sector, the same way. Many health doctors will even resign their appointments because of frustrations.
13.        NOTE: cost of living will still remain very high. A lot of traders will fold up their shops and some have already started folding up because many are now living on borrowed income, living on borrowed dress. I am telling you the truth.
14.        You will call them traders but they know that they are not traders again. They are just answering traders for answering sake but what made them traders is no longer there.
15.        The fabrics of business have been eaten away not only by inflation but because the hand of God is in it. Thus, we want every child of God to be sincere for the Gate of Hellfire is now open for all Christians.
16.        The Gate of Hellfire is open to all Christians. Many will blaspheme; many will drop out; I am telling you the truth. Some people in our midst will blaspheme this Faith. Some people among us, because of the intense hardship will backslide; will do things children of God are not supposed to do for them to survive. By so doing they are cut off from the Presence of Almighty God and they are dropped from rapture.
17.        I am yet to feel the impact of the Deacons’ wives, as well as the Pastors’ wives in the Church. Maybe we do not have them in the Church. Maybe they are outside.
18.        Let us go to the Scriptures before I talk to you.
19.        John 7:30, “Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come” KJV.
20.        John 19 : 11, “Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin” KJV.
21.        Luke chapter 22 : 53, “When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.” KJV.
22.        John 12 : 27, “Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour” KJV.
23.        Of a truth, the Scriptures can never be broken. Herein is the faith of our Master who is Christ Himself. Because of His preaching which He never compromised with anybody; His faith which He handled without respect of persons, His commission which He was meant to fulfill to the letter, many were offended.
24.        His preaching offended many people, most especially religious people of His day. He did not spare the Herodians. He did not spare the Nicolitian, He did not spare the Pharisees, the Sanhedrins, the scribes, and they ganged up against Him.
25.        All of them together, arch-enemies that could not agree before, had now come together to crucify Him because of His preaching. One may be wondering, in other counterfeit Churches; wherever you go on the land, they are littered everywhere. Their preaching is prosperity, healing, miracle, signs and wonders, social doctrine. There is no Church you can enter and hear a preacher preaching in this way, preparing people for their death. You can hardly hear it anywhere.
26.        The Bride Ministry is the only group on the land that is not preparing for prosperity but rather they are preparing for rapture everyday.
27.        This is where you will come and see righteousness and holiness exalted. Besides, there is no man that ever preached this way and get away with it.
28.        Going to all Pentecostals and mentioning Roman Catholic there is just for mentioning sake because they are all one, all saying the same thing. No Church is provoking the Pope; nobody is provoking any group again. However, the Bridal Faith is the only place where you will come and you will see that old action Faith.
29.        The Apostolic Faith on the land, going the same line all the past saints of God went. If Martin Luther will come out alive today, he will come into this most holy Faith. All the saints that were killed as a result of their stand in the gospel truth— they stood against the Pope and his false doctrines—if they come up to life again, where are they coming to? Into our Faith, which is the Bridal Faith!
30.        Why? Because all of them preached against worldly prosperity. They never compromised their holy and high calling in Christ for any material gain. They never exalted anything except the truth from God. For that reason, they all paid the price with their blood.
31.        Now we are on the scene, saying the same thing, moving in the same line, you think we shall escape? Must Christ bear the Cross alone and the whole world will go free? Don’t you know that there is a Cross for us to bear? There is a Cross for you; there is a Cross for Me. Without the Cross there is no crown. If you must put on the crown you must bear it.
32.        Let me tell you, if there is no trouble there will be no overcomer. For he that overcometh, I will give the right to partake of the Tree of Life. In other words, there is trouble somewhere. There is a problem somewhere. If there is no trouble, we would not be mentioning overcoming.
33.         Watch, a time came when they where ganging up against Him in order to arrest Him. They made all their several plans in the attempt, but they could not succeed. The Bible said that “because the hour has not yet come.” His hour was not yet come.
34.        In other words, the Lord Who called Him equally appointed a specific hour for Him. And until that hour comes, every attempt by human beings to get Him killed will fail.
35.        His ministry was not yet over. Something remaineth. At another time, they planned to kill Him; He said, “Thus; it is not even the man that will kill me that will have the greater condemnation but the one who will betray me. That person who will betray me, who will cause me to be identified and arrested, he has the greater condemnation.” Did you get the message?
36.        Somebody might be imagining; He went further to tell them, “All these years I have never hidden myself from them, I have been preaching in their open synagogues yet nobody laid hands on me” until Judas came forth and volunteered himself. He paved the way.
37.        Moreover, when Judas paved the way, he never knew that he was fulfilling the most terrible part of the Scripture.
38.        The Son of Man has already concluded in His mind that He is now going to lay down His life. No more running away. He has now hardened His heart that if they will capture Me, I will surrender my life. Lo and behold, Judas thought that the man will make abracadabra, “Go to 20 Benjamin street. You do not know the way? Come let me show you. Look at his house.”
39.        “We have seen the house but where is his own room?” “Okay, let me go and show you. That is the man.” Judas wanted to prove himself to know whether he can do all that He claimed to do but he never knew that the man has already decided to lay down His life. Then Judas had the greater condemnation. Not even Pilate. What did Jesus Christ say? “NOW IS YOUR OWN HOUR AND POWER OF DARKNESS”. Amen.

BEHOLD THE MAN OF SIN
Now Is Your Own Hour and Power of Darkness”—that is my topic. That is the topic of the Message: NOW IS YOUR HOUR AND POWER OF DARKNESS.
2.           I know that it is frightening to some people and these must be people that walk by divine revelation. Ben Okezue’s mother died on Thursday afternoon while he was in the Church. Now is his own hour and power of darkness.
3.           In all the ages, in every generation, starting from the creation of mankind, Satan has always persecuted the true elects of God. If we carry the experience back to the Garden of Eden, we can see the two individuals there; that is Cain and Abel. Abel there represents the Church, the Bride, the true people of God and we can see Cain who represents the anti-Christ in the Garden of Eden.
4.           Who is an anti-Christ? An anti-Christ is one that opposes God, one that challenges God’s authority. Besides, this anti-Christ we know is coming not as a chimpanzee, not as a spirit but is now coming in the form of a human being. We are told that the anti-Christ is coming and I am saying that this is the hour of darkness.
5.            That hour that Jesus Christ was referring to was the hour of His enemies, it is their own hour. In other words, it is the hour for them to reign over Him. It is their own time they can enrich whatever they have in their armory against the man of righteousness. It is the battle between the Man of Sin and the Man of Righteousness. In every age, the Man of Sin had always prevailed.
6.           Watch, Cain had to prevail against Abel and I am telling you that we are expecting him not as a spirit but as a human being.
7.           The antichrist is coming as a man and not as a spirit. As we can see in 1 John 4: 3, “And every spirit which does not acknowledge (and) confess (that) Jesus (Christ has come in the flesh) (but would annul, destroy, sever, disunite Him) is not of God {does not proceed from Him}. This (nonconfession) is the spirit) of the antichrist, (of) which you heard that it was coming, and now it is already in the world” AMP.
8.           2 John 1 : 7, “For many imposters (seducers, deceivers and false leaders) have gone out into the world, men who will not acknowledge (confess, admit) the coming of Jesus Christ (the Messiah) in bodily form, such a one is the imposter (the seducer, the deceiver, the false leader, the antagonist of Christ) and the antichrist.” AMP.
9.           I am saying that we are not expecting this man in the form of a spirit of antichrist as contained in these Scriptures. For many antichrist spirits are born into the world already.
10.        Every Pentecostal leader is an antichrist; every counterfeit Church is an antichrist Church. All the members of these counterfeit Churches are antichrists.
11.        In other words, they now posses antichrist spirit in them. So many antichrists are already in the world who cannot accept God in bodily form, God coming in the form of a human being, who cannot admit that the Son of Man Himself is the Almighty God; these are antichrists.
12.        These spirits are already in the world, they are not what I am saying. I am saying that you should expect the Man of Sin in a particular individual, a personality who will come and claim that he is God himself. He will oppose all the doctrines of Christ; and also will make war with all the saints of God that will try to live godly lives on Earth; all that will exalt the spoken Word as final authority, as final rule for all the children of God.
13.        This Man of Sin who will come claiming to be God himself, who will have dominion over all government of the Earth, who will even control God’s people for a period; he will make war with the saints for a season. He will suppress them and their teachings and even their doctrines, suppress their books and even cause some of them to be burnt at stake. Parade them before the councils and cause them to be persecuted publically.
14.        Watch that man, you will know him by his word. He will have the power to change religious laws; he will also have power to make decrees guiding the Churches. He will have the final authority on all Christian matters in all the nations in the world.
15.        Watch that man, he is coming and all Israelites will acknowledge him as their true Messiah not knowing that he is a false Messiah; ONLY TO RECOGNIZE THEIR FOLLY IN THE MIDST OF THE AGREEMENT. He will come claiming to be the savior and to pardon them especially that of the Jews for crucifying Christ and they will acknowledge him.
16.        WATCH OUT, THE WAR WILL SOON BREAK OUT. Why! We have come to the end of the Laodicea Age.
17.        We have come to the end of Gentile dispensation and I want to show you something; THE TRUE SAINTS OF GOD IN EVERY AGE, WATCH OUT, NORMALLY CLOSE THEIR MINISTRY BY COMING INTO DIRECT OPPOSITION WITH THE POPE.
18.        EVERY AGE WINDS UP BY CONFRONTING THE ANTICHRIST FACE TO FACE. FROM EPHESIANS CHURCH AGE DOWN TO LAODICEA CHURCH AGE, ALL THE MESSENGERS OF GOD WIND UP THEIR MINISTRIES BY COMING INTO DIRECT OPPOSITION WITH THE ROMAN CATHOLIC AND ITS FALSE DOCTRINE.
19.         I am coming to something. Watch the man who is the antichrist; you will know him by his manners, by his utterances which he will make to the whole world, against all that will preach contrary to his approved doctrine.
20.        In other words, everything must go the way he desires. That man must be a vessel and not an ordinary animal but a human being.  
21.        Daniel 7 : 20 – 27, “And about the ten horns [representing kings] that were on its head, and the other horn which came up later and before which three of [the horns] fell, the horn which had eyes and a mouth that spoke great things and which looked greater than the others. As I looked, this horn made war with the saints and prevailed over them…” 
22.        Do you see what is happening? He made war with the saints of God and prevailed. Just like Cain prevailed over Abel.
23.        “…Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High [God], and the time came when the saints possessed the kingdom. Thus [the angel] said, the fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth.
24.        Remember, the fourth beast is the fourth kingdom and the fourth kingdom is the Roman kingdom. All of you know that the Pope is sitting on Caesar’s Seat. The Caesar of today is the head of the Roman Catholic Church. If you do not know, know it. We are still living in the year of the Caesars’. The Church is still under Roman control. Rome is still in control till today.
25.        “…which shall be different from all other kingdoms and shall devour the whole earth, tread it down, and break it in pieces {and} crush it. And as for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise; and another shall arise after them, and he shall be different from the formal ones, and he shall subdue {and} put down three kings.
26.         And he shall speak words against the Most High [God] and shall wear out the saints of the Most High…”
27.        Note, he shall wear out the saints of God for a period by persecution, by great tribulation, great inquisition. In every age, every revival of the saints has always been subjected by the Rome. All the saints suffered in his hand and you think we will get away with it?
28.        From now you will be receiving signs. They will be coming with walkie-talkie; they will be coming with cassette recorder which will be played in judgment against us. Are you going to deny?
29.        “…and think to change the time [of sacred feasts and holy days] and the law; and the saints shall be given into his hands for a time…”
30.        I have told you in this Faith from histories and from the Holy Scriptures while I was teaching you on the “ESTABLISHMENT OF THE CHURCH,” that same Rome came forth in the cause of history into ten different nations, representing the nations; I made mention of the nations, the Orthodox, and the rest of them.
31.        Later on, one started to suppress the rest until they wind up the whole thing in Caesar again; and that is the Pope. He suppressed the remaining nine Kingdoms and waxed stronger than any other king that rose up in Alexander; he suppressed all and then established a kingdom unto himself—very powerful and devouring the whole Earth. How? By controlling all the whole government in the whole world.
32.        Every government on Earth today is under the control of Pope till now. If there is any trouble in any nation, it is because Pope has not said anything.
33.        “…two times, and a half a time [three and one-half years].
34.        But the judgment shall be set [by the court of the Most High], and they shall take away his dominion to consume it [gradually] and to destroy it [suddenly] in the end AMP.
35.        Daniel 11 : 21 -22, “And in his place [or] office [in Syria] shall arise a contemptuous {and} contemptible person, to whom royal majesty {and} honor of the kingdom have not been given. But he shall come in without warning in time of security and shall obtain the kingdom by flatteries, intrigues, {and} cunning hypocritical conduct.
36.        Before him the overwhelming forces of invading armies shall be broken {and} utterly swept away; yes, and a prince of the covenant [with those who were at peace with him] also [shall be broken and swept away] AMP.
37.         “And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
38.        That is why he has been parading himself in the world as a man of peace. What is he proclaiming everywhere? Peace, peace, peace; and the Bible said that when they shall be saying peace, peace sudden destruction will befall them.
39.        What is the reason for ecumenical movement? Is it not unity and peace? The reason for the ecumenical movement is for peace and unity among so-called Christians.
40.        THE MAN OF SIN WILL GO TO JERUSALEM CUNNINGLY AND THEY WILL ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AS THEIR MESSIAH: “THE MESSIAH HAS COME” BECAUSE ISRAEL IS NO LONGER FIGHTING WAR; HE HAS CALMED THE WAR DOWN. CUNNINGLY HE WILL COME IN. HE WILL NOT GO TO ISRAEL JUST DIRECTLY LIKE THAT BUT DECEITFULLY HE WILL ENTER AND WHEN HE WILL ENTER, THE HOLY GHOST TOLD US MANY YEARS AGO THAT HE WILL NOT GO BACK AGAIN.
41.        Where is he eyeing? He wants to stand in the holy city Jerusalem claiming to be God and that is the abomination that maketh desolate. For many place shall be made desolate for that is the abomination that maketh desolate: Standing in the holy city and claim to be God.
42.        Watch out the saints of God, the die is cast and there is no going back. Now, the prison yards are open, Hellfire is open, many will die by the stake, many by the sword, many will be kidnapped on the street like I am here, do not be surprised that one day, you will not see Me again and that will be the end.
43.        Yes, all for this Gospel sake. Yes, it has been like that in all the ages.  I thank God that I am not deceived. I just thank God.
44.        “…And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant. And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.
45.         He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.
46.        And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they shall forecast devices against him.
47.        Yea, they that feed of the portion of his meat shall destroy him, and his army shall overflow: and many shall fall down slain. And both these kings' hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.
48.        Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do exploits, and return to his own land. At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter. For the ships of Chittim shall come against him:
49.        Therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant. 
50.        And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.”
51.        They shall place what? The abomination that maketh desolate. One, he is going to stop the daily worship; daily sacrifice and then shall place in this place the abomination that maketh desolate. Many things are abomination in the sight of God in the Old Testament.
52.        However, the greatest abomination in the sight of God is worshiping of strange god, worshiping of a creature rather than God the Creator. That is the only abomination that maketh desolate because there it will make many things desolate.
53.        Watch out, this man, you will know him by this attitude. The last ruler that will rule this evil world before Christ’s rule will be the Pope. THE LAST WORLD RULER THAT WILL CONTROL THIS EVIL WORLD WITH HIS EVIL PRACTICES BEFORE CHRIST COMES TO RULE IS THE POPE OF ROME. He is now set to rule the world once again for the last time.
54.        Watch out, everything is set, he has gain assets in many nations. He has weakened many nations. America has stepped down to Romanism. Israel and Germany, arch-enemies are now united by Romanism. USSR disintegrated by Romanism. The whole of Europe is now one by Romanism.
55.        Gradually every European country has turned to BBC; they now have one radio station, all the heading is one world government, one world currency, one world army, one world market.
56.        NOTE, it is now heading to one world government, one world Church, one world market, one world currency. That is where they are heading to. The whole world is rejoicing that it is the best thing that will happen: Free trade association, free movement of people.
57.        NOTE again, it is the worst that will happen to all the children of God because you cannot be part of it until you receive that spiritual mark of the beast.
58.         THE MARK OF THE BEAST MEANS SPIRITUAL MARK, it is loyalty to the doctrines of the Pope. When you remain loyal and obedient to pope’s laws and regulations, you affiliate with any of the laws he has stated for all the nations, automatically you have received the spiritual mark.
59.        The world is looking for somebody bearing it, when the Bible said that it is the name of a man—the mark of the beast. This is where it calls for wisdom. Beast is not a man but a name, that is if you can calculate it. Amen.

WE ARE IN A PROPHETIC MINISTRY
Deuteronomy 4 : 27-33, “And the lord will scatter you among the peoples, and you will be left few in number among the nations to which the lord will drive you. There you will serve gods, the work the men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see nor hear nor eat nor smell.
2.           But if from there you will seek (inquire for and require as necessity) the lord your God, you will find him if you (truly) seek Him with all your heart [and mind] and soul and life. When you are in tribulation and all these things come upon you, in the latter days you will turn to the lord your God and be obedient to His voice.
3.            For the lord your God is a merciful God; he will not fail you or destroy you or forget the covenant of your fathers, which He swore to them.
4.           For ask now of the days that are past, which were before you, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from one end of the heavens to the other, whether such a great thing as this has ever occurred or been heard of anywhere.
5.           Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you heard, and live?” AMP.
6.           The Lord Himself said that He is going to scatter them and the same God promised to bring them back on a condition.
7.           That any day they realize their mistakes and try to come back to their God, the Lord promised to save them. However, when they were scattered, they were given over to dumb gods and they became Gentiles in the Gentile nations, worshipping creatures rather than God.
8.           Did it fulfill that way? Then he is going to leave them few, few in each nation roundabout. Some ran to Nigeria, some to Ethiopia, some to Russia, every country in the world received the Jews but since 1948 we have been noticing great elopement, the Jews going back to their nation, their homeland.
9.            Isaiah 14 : 1, “For the lord will have mercy on Jacob [the captive Jews in Babylon] and will again choose Israel and set them in their own land; and foreigners [who are proselytes] will join them and will cleave to the house of Jacob (Israel) AMP.
10.        Jeremiah 31 : 7-12, “For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD, save thy people, the remnant of Israel.
11.        Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.
12.        They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.
13.        Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he.
14.        Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all” KJV.
15.        I am showing you the scattering of the Jewish people and their restoration. I will show you the year they were restored as a nation. I will equally show you what is about to take place from the time they were restored until now, what you should expect from this same Bible.
16.        Why am I doing this? The Bible said that you do well because you have a more sure word of prophecy. Anything can fail but a sure word of prophecy can never fall.
17.        Ezekiel 36 : 38, “Like the flock of holy things for sacrifice, like the flock of Jerusalem in her [solemn] appointed feasts, so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men; and they shall know, understand, {and} realize that I am the Lord [the sovereign Ruler, who calls forth loyalty and obedient service]” AMP.
18.        As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD” KJV.
19.        Hosea 9 : 10, “I found Israel  like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the first ripe fruit on the fig tree in its first season, but they went to Baal-peor and consecrated themselves to that shameful thing [Baal], and they became detestable {and loathsome like that which they loved” AMP.
20.        I am balancing Scriptures for you to know that the Bible cannot make mistake. I am talking to my people. Now is their hour and power of darkness.
21.        THIS VOICE IS ROARING IN THE YEAR 1997. WE ARE IN A PROPHETIC MINISTRY AND WE ARE NOW DEALING WITH THE WORD OF PROPHECY. WE ARE GOING TO HANDLE THINGS PROPHETICALLY, INTERPRETATIONS PROPHETICALLY, EXPLANATIONS PROPHETICALLY.
22.        Watch the whole thing, by prophecy He scattered them, by prophecy He brought them back. All these men prophesied about their coming back; the people of the Jews were watching and waiting for the fulfillment of the prophecy.
23.        Many that watched and waited died away. It did not fulfill it in their day but in our eyes; we could see Ethiopia permitting their Jews to go home. Russia released their Jews, Somalia released their Jews, South Africa released their Jews, America released all their Jews, and even Nigeria released their Jews. Every country in the world released their Jews and when they were going back, each country gave them free transport.
24.        We could read some years ago, some that were having problem, they were settled in the Ogaden but they said no, that their fathers told them that they came from the tribe of Ruben—all according to the word that they must be settled in their own premises and in their tribes, no mistake.
25.        A group that came from Ethiopia went back and they were settled in a wrong tribe, they said no, that they came from the tribe of Judah and they were resettled. They went to Judah and then settled there. Now the settlement is over.
26.        When did it start? In the year 1948 because the United Nations Organization (UNO) gave an order that Israel will be recognized as a nation, thus they will no longer remain in exile; all to fulfill prophecy. That word started on May 14th 1948. From that day we saw the national flag flying in Palestine for the first time after their captivity. Shall we give a clap unto the Lord? We have a more sure word of prophecy. It cannot fail.
27.        2 Peter 1 : 19, “And we have the prophetic word [made] firmer still. You will do well to pay close attention it as to a lamp shining in a dismal (squalid and dark) place, until the day breaks through [the gloom] and the Morning Star rises (comes into being) in your hearts” AMP.
28.        “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.” KJV.
29.        Many that waited died, but at the appointed time the word came to pass. IF THE SCATTERING OF THE JEWS MEANS THE COMING IN OF THE GENTILES, WHAT DO YOU THINK THE RECONCILING OF THE JEWS IS?
30.        NOW YOU HAVE SEEN THE JEWS GOING BACK, THEY ARE GOING TO RECEIVE THEIR MESSIAH. IN OTHER WORDS, THIS MAN—THE TRUE MESSIAH—IS GOING TO SHOW THEM WHERE THEY INJURED HIM. MOREOVER, HE WILL NOT GO UNTIL THEY HAVE BECOME A FULL NATION.
31.        NOW THEY HAVE BECOME A FULL NATION. THEY ARE NOT A NATION UNTIL THEY HAVE CELEBRATED THEIR JUBILEE AND THEY CANNOT CELEBRATE THEIR JUBILEE WITHOUT THEIR GOD. ISRAEL ALL ALONG HAS BEEN PRACTICING THEOCRACY: THE GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE BY GOD. THEY ARE NOT GOING TO APPOINT A LEADER AGAIN FOR HE WILL BE GOD OVER HIS OWN HERITAGE.
32.        THEY ARE WAITING FOR HIM, AND NOW HE GATHERED THEM, AND THE HOUR HAS COME IN OUR DAY. THE PROPHECY THAT WAS PROPHESIED LONG, LONG TIME AGO HAS FULFILLED IN OUR DAY. HE IS NOW GATHERING THEM AGAIN, WON’T YOU BE SHAKING YOUR TAIL? DON’T YOU KNOW THAT YOUR TIME IS OVER?
33.        Every forty-nine years they will release all slaves; nobody will leave a step in Israel every forty-nine years. Every fifty years, they will celebrate their Jubilee. We are coming to something.
34.        From 1948, let us add 49 years to it and see the time they will release all their slaves; nobody will be slave, and that should be 1997. You see why a Sister received a warning that whatever you want to do, make sure by 15th of March you have become serious with the Faith.
35.        Watch in the message titled “Great Reunion,” God said, “Expect the climax in May 1997.” He said that it will start August 26th 1996, but expect the climax in May 1997. You will do well if you pay heed to that sure Word of prophecy; though it tarries but it must surly come to pass.
36.        From the way things are going, what do you think the climax will be if not the persecution of the saints. What do you think will start its climax? What is more, you have heard that this Easter is going to be the Bridal Easter: The Easter of James and John, James and Peter.
37.        Watch out, now that your publication “Last Trumpet” is now in the hand of the merger priests which is the Pope and CAN, and what is written is against Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) already, don’t you think that the killing of people will start gradually? If it starts gradually, by May won’t you expect the climax?
38.        REMEMBER THE BIBLE SAID THAT YOU WILL NOT EXPECT YOUR FLIGHT EXCEPT IN THE MIDST OF TROUBLE. YOUR FLIGHT IS IN THE MIDST OF THE TROUBLE AND IN THE MIDST OF THE TROUBLE; THE ATTENTION OF THE WORLD WILL BE DRAWN AWAY. GOD WILL DO SOMETHING AND EVERYBODY’S ATTENTION WILL GO THAT WAY, THEN BEFORE THEY KNOW IT, IT IS ALL OVER.
39.        MAYBE IN THE MIDST OF THE TROUBLE THIS MAN, THE TRUE MESSIAH, THE VERY ELOHIM WILL GO TO JERUSALEM.
40.        The first Pope that entered Jerusalem as a city, history had it that immediately he stepped into that city in 1947, there was a gross darkness all over the city. Then the third Pope who had arrived has restored relationship with Israel.
41.        We read it in the newspaper in the fellowship that he has restored the diplomatic relationship with Israel, and Israel foreign minister has now signed agreement with the Pope concerning his coming, which made the man to give them ten million dollars for the reconstructing of the New Jerusalem.
42.        This Church is in form. Go anywhere in the whole world you cannot hear something like this. What you will be hearing is: you witches and wizards, you this and that but not in this Church. This Faith is where you will come and see the Holy Ghost.
43.        God will come down Himself and then prepare a people unto Himself. He is preparing His Church; His Bride in a supernatural way for their flight is around the corner. Many are not catching this message.
44.        There is a message we used to sing in our song. What am I saying? We have seen 1997 May 14th, then we look at their timetable, on their fiftieth year; Israel will celebrate their jubilee this time around with their true Messiah and not the false one.
45.        HOWEVER, BEFORE THEN, THE FALSE MESSIAH WILL BE GOING. WATCH OUT, THE STAGE IS RIPE. IF GOD WILL USE ROMAN CALENDAR TO DEAL WITH THE GENTILE IT IS PROPER. THEN USE JEWISH CALENDAR TO DEAL WITH THE JEWS. YOU CANNOT EXPECT GOD TO USE JEWISH CALENDAR TO DEAL WITH THE GENTILES.
46.        For if He uses this Jewish calendar then the trouble of the saints may start in the middle of this year. Moreover, if the Lord fails to cut it short, no single soul shall be saved. Amen.

THE MORE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY
Now let us continue with the Scriptures. I want to show you something in the Scriptures.
2.           From the history of the Bible, we can check what the Lord said: from Adam the first man to Abraham, is 2000 years; and from Abraham to the birth of Jesus Christ is also 2000 years.
3.           From the birth of Jesus Christ till the year 1997 is 1997 years. I will show you something in the Bible. Prophetic year or prophetic day is what we are going to use.
4.           By God’s prophetic day, a day is one thousand (1000) years. From Adam to Abraham is two days. From Abraham to the birth of Christ is two days; from Jesus Christ till now is two days, after this 2000, that will give us 6000 years and then the seventh day becomes God’s eternal Sabbath which He said that it must be kept holy and if anybody breaks it, he must be guilty forever and ever.
5.           That is why we are all Sabbatarians. The people that called themselves Sabbatarians are accursed Sabbatarians for Sabbath means God’s eternal rest and Sabbath rest is going to be for one day and that one day is the millennium; one thousand years reign of Christ on His Throne.  
6.           Hebrews 4 : 8-10, “For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
7.           For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.” KJV.
8.           When God finished Creation, the Bible said that He created everything in six days and on the seventh day God alone rested; He did not rest with man for man was among the creatures He created.
9.           That’s why Jesus came and told them that Sabbath was meant for man and not man for Sabbath; for He is the God of Sabbath. For the day of rest still remains for God’s own people.
10.        “[this mention of a rest was not a reference to their entering into Canaan] for if Joshua had given them rest, He [God] would not speak afterward about another day.” KJV.
11.        This means, if Christ had celebrated Sabbath, we would not have been expecting another Sabbath. That Jesus is a type of Joshua and then Joshua was Christ in shadow. Did you catch the message?
12.        I thank God that you cannot fool anybody in this Faith. I am fortifying somebody so that you will not be shaken in any way for we are the people that keep the Sabbath.
13.        If Christ had celebrated Sabbath, for now we would have been enjoying Millennium. He did not celebrate it because the time for it has not yet come. He was only living in the fourth day. Christ was living in the fourth day. He was born on the fourth day. The Messiah was born on the fourth day.
14.        Joshua took the people to Canaan yet they did not celebrate Sabbath while he was there. Whatever they were observing there, to God it was not Sabbath. That is why the Bible said, “Let no man condemn you.”
15.        According to Colossians chapter 2 verse 16, who are the true people of God? We are the people. I am one of them. If anybody perishes in this Church, that person is ordained to perish not that he wants to perish. You are not going to perish—because you can never accept a lie without rejecting the truth. You will reject truth before you can accept lies. This year is your hour and power of darkness.
16.        Now, remember that I am showing you that the true Messiah will be going there at last. But before then somebody has already prepared himself to go there. Everything has been concluded but before, they were arch-enemies. When the relationship was not there, Israel withdrew their diplomatic relationship but now it has been amended, everything is normal, making way for the man to go and it is being broadcast everywhere.
17.        We are watching. What am I saying? If the sure word of prophecy did not fail, and the people have now communicated, anxiously waiting; let Me tell you what is happening, if somebody hears “Thus saith the Lord, go to Asaba, at the end of the river, turn to your right, you will see a portfolio, carry it for what is there is money for your coming.” That “Thus saith the Lord;” you are not the only one that have heard it, Satan equally heard it.
18.        If while the person is going, getting to the middle of the river, he sees a portfolio at the right hand side; don’t you know that he will be tempted to carry that one? That is what is happening to Israel.
19.        ISRAEL FOR A LONG TIME NOW HAS STAYED WITHOUT A TRUE GOD, AND THEY HAVE BEEN SUFFERING IN THE HANDS OF THE GENTILES, THEY HAVE REALIZED THEIR FOOLISHNESS AND NOW THEY ARE DESIRING THEIR MESSIAH, AND THIS FALSE MESSIAH KNEW IT.
20.        Now the stage is ripe, he is going there. We are already in his hands. Already we are in the hands of the Pope, the head of the Roman Catholic Church. There is no going back. Hence, if you want to go back you will denounce the Faith, and even if you denounce the Faith, they will kill you lest you spoil others.
21.        We are here watching. In the prophetic years and prophetic days, I will show you that we are about entering our Sabbath as God’s true people to celebrate the true Sabbath.
22.        These people also will celebrate their own jubilee. They will celebrate their own jubilee while we celebrate our own Sabbath. Let me come down a little; until your eyes are open I will not stop. Follow Me to the more sure word of prophecy.
23.        Hosea 6: 1-2, “Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight” KJV.
24.        As we know from the prophecy that a day in the sight of God is one thousand (1000) years in the sight of man. After two days which is two thousand years, He will revive us.
25.        Now if we use AD70, what are we going to get? 1900. What am I saying, saints of God watch out, we are sitting on a time bomb. Anything can take place now. However, what you should expect now is that, prison yards are open and the moment it starts it will not stop until you meet Christ in the air.
26.        BUT REMEMBER THAT YOUR TROUBLE WILL LAST FOR TEN DAYS. THAT IS WHAT I WANT SOMEBODY TO TAKE NOTE OF. Your trouble will last for ten days.
27.        Now you see them going back, this is our year; expect a showdown for it is now with us.
28.        Mathew 24 : 32-41: “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
29.        So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
30.        35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
31.        But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
32.        For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
33.        And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.” KJV.
34.        From the fig tree learn this lesson: as soon as its young shoots become soft and tender and it puts out its leaves…”
35.        Which means as you see the fig tree turning green again, and the fig tree is no other person than Israel as a nation. When you see Israel blossoming again as a nation, note what the Scripture says.
36.        “…You know of a surety that summer is near. So also when you see these signs, all taken together, coming to pass, you may know of a surety that He is near, at the very door.”
37.        I am trying to link you up with the more sure word of prophecy. Now we have seen the people going back, settling down, we should know that the end is here already. When you see Israel coming back again, blossoming as a nation, know that the end is near even at your doorstep.  
38.        Are we following the message at all? The message has gone to all the nations. It did not say to every individual. We have posted the message to all the nations in the world, and we have seen the fig tree blossoming again. The end is not even far but it is now at your doorstep.
39.        WHAT IS THE CALL? FLEE FOR YOUR LIFE, GET READY FOR YOUR FLIGHT. SHAKE OFF ALL WEIGHT. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? CAST AWAY ALL THOSE THINGS AND WEIGHT THAT EASILY BESET YOU.
40.        Everybody, this is not the time you start to thinking of twenty years budget. Is not the time marriage will be occupying your mind. This is the time you must sit down quietly, faithfully waiting, lest on that day before you know it, it is all over and then you are left behind. Maybe you go back to tell people what happened.
41.        God forbid. That I should know all these truths and still miss it. I will be the most miserable man after knowing all these truths and still miss it.  
42.       This Church is blessed. I am telling you the truth, we are blessed.
43.      On this note, I say remain in your sanctified estate, remain blessed in Him eternally.
