(ECHOES OF TRIBULATION PG 92 VS 13-14)

HOLD YOUR TICKET FIRMLY
The message has gone to all the nations. He did not say to every individual. We have carried the message to all the nations in the whole world and we have seen the fig tree blossoming green again. The end is not even far; it is now at your doorstep. Now is the call, “Flee for your life, get ready for your flight, and shake off every old feather.”
2.           What are you going to do? Cast away all those things and weight that easily beset you. Every burden because from now is not the time you are going to be thinking about twenty years budget, it is not the time you will allow marriage to occupy your mind or children or work.
3.           No, this is the time you must sit down quietly and carefully manage your life lest on that day, before you know it, it is all over and then you are left behind. Maybe on that day, you begin to ask people what happened. God forbid!
4.           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 miss it. This Church is blessed. I am telling you the truth, we are blessed. A day in the sight of God is one thousand years. Not is like, no, but it is.
5.           Second Peter 3: 18, Psalms 90: 4 and Acts 2 : 17. Note these scriptures.
6.           Romans 11: 15-25, “For if their rejection and exclusion from the benefit of salvation were over-ruled…”
7.           Have I not been telling you that from that day they killed their Messiah, their timetable stopped. I would have been dealing with you with the seventy weeks of Daniel but many of you cannot understand it. Though it does not concern you but at least the sixty-ninth week is for you but many will not understand it because it is meant for learned people because there, we do a lot of calculations for you to see what I am saying and all of them will take you to 1997. No matter the way you take it, it will boil down to 1997.  
8.           Moreover, Jubilee is 1998, the fiftieth year; but you know what is happening. Joseph packed his household inside the inner room and locked up the door, and then came out and presented himself to his brethren. The Bride must be sealed away, then He will go and present Himself to His people (the Israelites).
9.           “…For the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance and redemption mean? [it will be nothing short of life from the dead]…”
10.        I will say that it is nothing but the CUT OFF of the Gentiles. Because the Gentiles were grafted in until their own time is over. God gave us time. He said: until the time of the Gentiles is fulfilled and the number of the Gentiles come in. In other words, the number is okay and the time is over.
11.        How do you know that the time is over? Israel has gone back to their nation. The fig tree has started blossoming and “The Man of Sin” is already about to be revealed. From all indications, from history, from the Bible, events are made clear by prophecy.
12.        You see, we are in modern investment made clear by prophecy. I thank God that I am not fooled; that I am not deceived, that at least He used everlasting life and consoled Me. You see, He consoled Me with eternal life. Eternal life is what I need now. Anything that is not eternal life, do not come to discuss it with Me. This year is not the year of: “Brother, I have something to tell you.   
13.        Anything that is not edifying, do not bring it on my way. This year is the year I will guard up my loins very well and face the music. Thus, if you know that you are afraid, better shake off.
14.        “…now if your first handful of dough offered as the first fruits [Abraham and the patriarchs] is consecrated (holy), so is the whole mass [the nation of Israel]; and if the root [Abraham] is consecrated holy, so are the branches. But if some of the branches were broken off, while you a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among them to share the richness [of the root and sap] of the olive tree. Do not boast over the branches and pride yourself at their expense.
15.         If you do boast and fill superior, remember it is not you that support the root, but the root [that supports] you. You will say then, branches were broken [pruned] off so that I might be grafted in. that is true.
16.        But they were broken [pruned] off because of their unbelief (their lack of real faith), and you were established through faith [because you do believe]. So do not become proud and conceited, but rather stand in awe and be reverently afraid.
17.        For if God did not spare the natural branches [because of unbelief] neither will he spare you if you are guilty of the same offence.
18.        Then note and appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God; severity towards those who have fallen, but Gods gracious kindness to you, provided you to continue in His grace and abide in His kindness, otherwise you too will be cut off (pruned away)….” AMP.
19.        “I want you to know about this truth from God dear brothers, so that you will not fill proud and start boasting, yes it is true that some of the Jews have set themselves against the Gospel now but this will only last until all of you Gentiles have come to Christ. Those of you who will…” LB.
20.        “For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy : and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
21.        And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
22.        Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
23.        Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.
24.        For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in..”  KJV.
25.        What am I trying to establish? God had already concluded the whole matter and I have told you that it is all over for the Gentiles. That they are now roaming in tenth day. FROM NOW IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANYBODY TO ENTER THIS FAITH FOR THE SALVATION ARK IS LOCKED.
26.        The time is ripe for the Lord to go back to His own people, the original olive tree. We are the wild ones, we were just grafted in because of their blindness which came to them only in part, for a season and the time when God specified for the Gentiles is all over. Gentile days are over, eternity now will soon unfold.
27.        The journey that started two thousand years ago remains ONE DAY. We are a privileged people that we are living at the end of the period. That God is using me and you to wind up the mystery of eternity. We are winding up the history and I thank God for that—Christ speaking to His Bride in the Gentiles and I am one of them. Who am I? I owe Him a lot in this flesh.
28.        Isaiah 59 : 20, “And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.” KJV.
29.        The Lord promised to come back to His people again because they have turned their minds away from transgression. In other words, they have now repented. They are now ready to accept Him. What is more, it is all over for us (the Gentiles). God has given us enough time as Gentiles but unnecessary reasoning and arguments have hindered us from following Him and that is why the world is the way they are now.
30.        There is no generation that has received the preaching of the Gospel like us but at the end of it all, we have produced nothing. Thank God for this small believing minority which He has preserved till this day. If you allow somebody else to replace you, you will regret at last.
31.        Hold your ticket firmly because you know whom you are following; you are not deceived. We are not sharing anything in this Faith than His Word.
32.        Other places where this word is talked outside, they replaced it with marriage seminar. Civil seminar, marriage consultants here and there, marriage counselors, choosing the bride, defining God’s will for you, how Oga and wife lived at peace even when they are living in pieces.
33.         Thus, to my friends that are in this Church, you are either in this Church to believe Christ and be saved in this dying minute or you are in this Church to receive judgment and go away. You cannot go out empty, you must go out with one.
34.        This is very necessary, for this Faith is not the place where you will come and you will be rejoicing that somebody has come. If we are the denominations, we will be clapping hands since you came in, trying to shout halleluiah until you become one of us but in this Faith, when we look at you, we feel offended for a burden has been added. Anybody coming in now is not a blessing because I do not know the time I will use to start teaching him and breeding him until he becomes filled with the Holy Ghost…….
35.        I transferred somebody from Onitsha to Abuja because of Tony Igwe and she went to Abuja and confessed that: of a truth, that she was not a believer because of Tony Igwe. Something which she could not confess here, she became emergency Christian, filled with emergency Holy Ghost and the Lord spoke to me on the matter. Over night when she never expected it, I boarded her far so that my brother will be a Christian.
36.        I know that Tony Igwe gave you “Cry Out against the System” or “Hard Truth.” Maybe you have  fellowshipped somewhere before, maybe when you were in the school but in this gathering we are just nonentities. Nobody is literate gathering but we know Christ. In other words, we know all things.
37.        If peradventure, before you were saying, “At least this one”. If something anointed you before and you were saying, “At least this one,” now note it.
38.        He may not marry you until everything is over and if he must marry, you will feel disappointed if he marry somebody else, for that reason, get a place in Christ first; be espoused to the Holy One of Israel so that you will not be disappointed. Drop everything you were having when you started meeting Brother Tony Igwe. Drop it for if you do not drop it you will say “Had I Known”.
39.        Brother Igwe the same thing. Marry Miss Christ. I have told you that we do not believe in convert and marry. We do not know any other thing than to tell every man the truth because you must be filled with the Holy Ghost before you think of marriage. He must be filled with the Holy Ghost before he will think of marriage and it is not a must that you will marry in this Church. It is not a law that you yourself will marry in Onitsha Church.
40.        If God tarries, you may be marrying in Dadinkowa. Moreover, we do not believe in courtship for if you are a believer and I am a believer, what is the need of courtship? We do not court anybody in this Faith. I believe that you are a believer, and you believe that I am a believer. What we have to do is to come together and then we marry. We do not permit marriage until you assure us that the money and everything is complete. I have two persons already that have shown Me their money and I have commanded them to marry if time tarries.  
41.        Pray for what is ahead of us. Do not pray and say God when will I marry? You may not marry till we get home. Any Brother that shows me his money for marriage will marry and he will marry a believer. If it is not in Onitsha, may be in another local Church for we do not marry boys and girls or guys, no, we marry Brothers and Sisters.
42.        Two Pastors came to me and said, “Sir, we are now ready for marriage and we have the capacity to live,” and I said, “To God be the glory! Go and pray, then come back.”
43.        Let us face the matter at stake for the matter at stake is not marriage because no true soldier that warred entangles himself with the affairs of the world. What is his target? That he may please He that has called him. Not the time that marriage will be bothering me. Even if my wife is not interested in my Gospel, if she like she can go. Amen.

THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD
Romans 8 : 19-22. “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
2.           For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.. KJV.
3.           For even the whole creation [all nature] waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s Sons to be made known. Waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their Son-ship, for the creation (nature), was subjected to frailty [to futility, condemned to frustration] not because of some intentional fault on its part, but by the will of Him who so subjected it. Yet with the hope.
4.           That nature [creature itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and corruption and gain an entrance into the glorious freedom of God’s children. We know that the whole creation of irrational creatures has been moaning together in the pains of labour until now. AMP.
5.           That the manifestation of sons and daughters of God is going to liberate every natural creature. Have I not told you that it was our transgression that has made all these animals our enemy? That they are dying today is because of our curse.
6.           Get a fowl in your house, that fowl won’t like to die; the same way, the goat in your house does not want to die. There is no living thing that wants to die, not even a rat wants to die. That’s why you will see it running, avoiding you because it does not want to die.
7.           Moreover, they are looking forth for that day when they will be liberated from the hands of death. Nations and all creatures have been groaning, waiting for that day sons and daughters of God shall be manifested and they all will be set free. That is what we are heading to, we are heading towards it.  
8.           It is at the doorstep but somebody can miss it narrowly, but do not be among the people that will say, “Oh I missed that day! Oh it is because of this business! Oh it is because of this woman!” There should be no excuse you will give.
9.           Matthew 24: 21, “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. KJV.
10.        For then there will be great tribulation, affliction, distress and oppression such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be again” AMP.
11.        Before the manifestation of the sons and daughters of God, there must be first of all this great tribulation. This sons and daughters of God are the people that will be redeemed from the great tribulation, who have washed their garments pure and white.
12.        Thus, do not think that you will not pass through this great tribulation for by and by, you must pass through it and it is around the corner. WATCH OUT, FOR THE HOUR OF DARKNESS IS VERY MUCH AROUND.
13.        Luke 21 : 25-26, “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the Earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
14.        Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the Earth: for the powers of Heaven shall be shaken.” KJV.
15.        A Brother told Me a vision. He said that one man they gave “The Last Trumpet” told them at Eha-Amufu that he heard from Radio VOA saying that ministers of Heaven have left their positions and that they were seen coming down towards the Earth and that has frightened the scientist. That Old man said also that the news frightened him.
16.        Our Brother asked him a question and said, “Sir, what do you think in your own interpretation that the whole thing signifies?” He answered and said, “Of course, without mincing words, it signifies the end of all things.” Our Brother said, “Okay, but now you know it, take this book, it is the Last Trumpet.”
17.        Remember the time the astronauts saw the thing as the hosts of angels descending towards the Earth, remembered what we saw, remember what is in our midst and we were waiting that a little while it is going to rest somewhere.
18.        What is more, when He is lifted up, He will draw souls unto Himself. For He allowed Himself to be captured with visible eyes. There was a Voice that told us concerning it before the photograph backed it up as a confirmation. Just like the one we saw in this Pentecost 1996. We have all of them ready, we printed all.  
19.        And there will be signs in the moon and the stars and upon the Earth, there will be distress and anguish of nations and bewilderment and perplexity without resources, left wanting, embarrassed, in doubt, not knowing which way to turn at the roaring [the echo] of the tossing of the sea……”
20.        You see, God will not only shake the Heavens, He will also shake the Earth. The inhabitants of the Earth will tremble. Watch, the rain has fallen in many places yet no harmattan. Scientists said that something has eaten off the Ozone Layer and the sun is now coming closer and closer towards the Earth.
21.        We are the only people that are holding God’s anger because we have not attained perfection, some of our brethren are still lagging behind, some are still rising and falling.
22.        Isaiah 30 : 26. “Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.”  KJV.
23.        When the moon will be like the sun both in heat, and the sun become seven times hotter; I do not know why people refuse to serve God. On that day, run into River Niger, River Niger will dry off, no place to hide. You see why we are hammering, seeing the terror that is coming.
24.        That was why I told my people that I will be the last idiot that will invest now for I know that our departure is as clear as you are sitting down here, the same way I know that my arrest is as clear as possible.
25.        Look at what God said in Amplified: In the day the Lord redeemed Israel, bind their wound, because they have now repented; what will befall the rest of man kind? And you know that we cannot be here, by that time, we are gone.
26.        We will know before their full reconciliation; do you know that? Christ will be here when our trouble will begin for He will be the man that will save us in the hands of the Pope. He is the Ancient of Days, then after redeeming us, He will then move down to Israel. WATCH OUT, IT IS YOUR HOUR AND POWER OF DARKNESS.
27.        Revelation 16 : 8-9, “And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.” KJV.
28.        Revelation 6 : 12-17, “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
29.        And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
30.        And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
31.        And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” KJV.
32.        . Luke 21 : 34-36. “But take heed to yourself and be on the guard, lest your heart be over burdened and depressed and weighed down with the giddiness and headache and nausea of self-indulgence, drunkenness and worldly worries and cares pertaining to the business of this life, and lest that day come upon you suddenly like a trap or a noose; For it will come upon all those who live upon the face of the entire Earth.
33.        Keep awake then and watch at all times, be discrete, attentive and ready praying that you may have the full strength and ability and be accounted worthy to escape all these things [taken together] that will take place and to strand in the presence of the Son of Man.” AMP.
34.        And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole Earth.
35.        Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” KJV.
36.        “Watch out, do not let my sudden coming catch you unawares…. keep a constant watch and pray that if possible, you may arrive in my presence without having to experience this course.”
37.        Verse 28, “So when all these things begin to happen, stand straight and look up for your salvation is near.” LB.
38.        Luke 17 : 26-30, “And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
39.        They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
40.        But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” KJV.
41.        This is to let you know the hour that you are living in, that as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man.
42.        In the days of Noah, people were eating and drinking, marrying and being given unto marriage and they never knew the hour they were living in, and the whole thing took them by surprise.
43.        Matthew 24 : 14, “And this good news of the kingdom [the Gospel will be preached through out the whole world as a testimony to all the nations and then will come the end.” AMP.
44.        And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” KJV.
45.        Revelation 14 : 6-7, “Then I saw another angel fly in mid air with an eternal Gospel [good news] to tell to the inhabitants of the Earth, to every race and tribe and language and people. And He cried with a mighty voice, Revere God and give Him glory [honor and praises in worship], for the hour of His judgment has arrived.
46.        Fall down before Him, pay Him homage and adoration and worship Him who created the Heaven and Earth, the sea and the springs (fountains) of water.” AMP.  
47.        “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting Gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
48.        Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” KJV.
49.        Amos 3 : 7, “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” KJV.
50.         The Lord God will do nothing but revealeth His will unto His servants the Prophets. In other words, He will never take His people by surprise; before it will start He will declare it. Moreover, that takes Me to “The Last Trumpet.” Amen.

GET READY FOR YOUR FLIGHT
First Thessalonians 4 : 16-17. “For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with the loud cry of summons, with the shout of an arc angel and with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first.
2.           Then we, the living ones who remain on Earth shall simultaneously be caught up along with the resurrected dead in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so always [through the eternity of the eternities we shall be with the Lord.” AMP.  
3.           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:
4.           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.” KJV.
5.           I want you to note these three important things. NUMBER ONE, THE SHOUT OF THE LORD HIMSELF. The Lord Himself will descend with a shout, to be followed with the noise of the Archangel (the Voice of God).
6.           In other words, the Lord the God we worship is the One all reverence. He holds the shout, He holds the voice, and the shout signifies the attraction of the anointing; and He made them to hear the Voice that said, “Off your shoes for the place you are standing is holy.”
7.            Again, He holds in His hand the Trumpet. The Lord is holding all, no other person is helping Him, that is why He told us to build a house, and the house was built in three stages: THE ATTRACTION, THE VOICE AND THE JUDGMENT.
8.           The shout is the “Cry Out Against the System.”  If any man fails to take heed to these voices, he becomes the foolish virgin. If you are playing with what is handed over to you, you are fulfilling the foolish virgins. Anybody that is running now is, running last, and I will back it up as we continue.
9.           First Corinthians 15 : 52. “In a moment, in a twinkle of an eye at the sound of the last trumpet call, for a trumpet will sound, and the dead in Christ will be raised imperishable [free and immune] from decay, and we shall be changed (transformed). AMP.
10.        The last trumpet call is nothing but God’s own last and final call for redemption.
11.        In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” KJV.
12.        Exodus 19 : 13-19, “There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount. And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes. And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at your wives.
13.        And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled. And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.
14.         And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.” KJV.
15.        If we go further, you will see that the people told Moses: “We do not want to hear from Him again, you will be hearing for us.” In other words, the blasting of the trumpet was a very lengthy message.
16.        In Exodus 20 verse 18-19, watch what happened there, from that time, they were commanded to stay away from women and sanctify themselves, get ready.  
17.        Exodus 20 : 18-19. “Now all the people perceived the thundering and the lightening and the noise of the trumpet and the smoking mountain and as they looked they trembled with fear and fell back and stood a far off. And they said to Moses, You speak to us and we will listen but not God speak to us, lest we die.” AMP.
18.        And all the people saw the thundering, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.” KJV.
19.        Have you seen what is happening there? Thus, I want you to understand that you will never hear a trumpet again after this Church Age. So, you may start to hear voices.
20.        Revelation 11 : 16-19. “The seventh angel then blew his trumpet and there were mighty voices in Heaven shouting, The dominion [kingdom, sovereignty, rule] of the world has now come into the possession and become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ the Messiah, and He shall reign forever and ever [for eternities of the eternities].
21.        Then the twenty four elders of the Heavenly sanhedrin, who sat on their thrones before God, prostrating themselves before Him and worshiped. Exclaiming, to you we give thanks, Lord God Omnipotent, the one who is and ever was, for assuming the high sovereignty and the great powers that are yours and for the beginning to reign…” AMP.
22.        “And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshiped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
23.        And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
24.        And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.” KJV.
25.        If William Branham was the Seventh Angel, where lies the claim of that trumpet he said? It then means that rapture has taken place long, long time ago and we do not know. I am trying to lead you somewhere.
26.        THE TRUMPET HAS SOUNDED AND IT IS THE VOICE OF THE LORD. YOU WILL NOT HEAR ANY OTHER TRUMPET ON THE LAND AGAIN. THE NEXT TRUMPET WILL BE HEARD IN HEAVEN AND THAT WILL BE GOD AND HIS PEOPLE REJOICING, SHARING TESTIMONIES OF HOW THEY OVERCOME.
27.        If you hear any other trumpet in this Earth, call Me a false Apostle, know that I am misled.
28.         “And the heathens [the nations] raged, but your wrath [retribution, indignation] came, the time when the dead will be judged and your servants the prophets and saints rewarded-and those who revere, fear your name, both low and high and small and great-and the time of destroying the corrupters of the Earth.” AMP.
29.        Matthew 25 : 10, “But why they were going away to buy, the Bridegroom came, and those who were prepared went in with him to the marriage feast and the door was shut. AMP.
30.        “And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.” KJV.
31.        When the foolish virgins came back, and found that the door was shut, there was no amount of knocking that can make the door to open.
32.         All that could not keep pace with the message, they thought there was a lot of time left, they were giving their time to too many things in the world, some to business and some to marriage, and some to foolish discussions. They have no time to study and be filled with the Holy Ghost, they had not time to prepare and seal in fully, when the door was shut and they came back, they were knocking and knocking and knocking, did the door open? No.
33.        That is why I have told you that when they were arguing, when they had the opportunity to believe the message, some were doubting and arguing, but the door is now shut. I repeat, the door is now shut. The number that He (God) has raptured is the number that will meet Him in the marriage supper of the lamb. The rest are now coming to hit on the door not knowing that they are wasting their time.
34.        It has always been a stumbling block in every age, they will take Noah seriously until rain starts falling. Even if the rain starts falling, it will fall for four consecutive days before they will start believing. Even if this faith does like that, people will still doubt it. Amen.

NOW IS YOUR HOUR AND POWER OF DARKNESS
I know very well that it is all over for no man enters again after the door is shut. No man from the Gentile world is saved after Christ goes with His elect. The day of grace ends with the end of Church Age.
2.           You do not know the meaning of the Church Age until there is one on the scene. There must be Someone to signal the beginning and He will signal the end because He is the Angel of that age. You must look at Him for He knows the Voice He received, he knows His commission, and He knows when he has come to the end. When Christ came to them, He said, “Now it is your hour and power of darkness.”
3.           I am telling you that it is your hour because I have come to the end. I have kept the faith, I have fought a good fight, I have come to the end and so it is all over.
4.           The Gentiles days are numbered. Do you think that it will be forever? If you have been making mistake of thinking that the world will remain like this, that year after year the Earth will remain like that, your prediction has failed you because God is now winding up everything.
5.           Nature itself will tell you that what I am saying is true. Watch the rate or the speed the days are running, because when cassette runs to the end, it goes fast, yet without changing the voice. Thus, the end of grace ends with the end of the Church Age, then judgment and wrath immediately follows.
6.           NO AGE ENDS WITHOUT CONFRONTING THE ANTICHRIST. THE DIRECT CONFRONTATION OF THE ANTICHRIST MARKS THE END OF EACH CHURCH AGE.
7.           I told you that the Church Age did not end with William Branham, although he died but the Church Age continued. But the end-time message followers said that the Church Age ended when Branham died and that is not true because He was to come and restore all things.
8.           Moreover, He cannot restore all things until the Apostle comes on the scene for all things means restoring the original Church Age, replacing the apostasy Church with the original Church Age.
9.           Once the prophet appears, expect the apostle. Who is making hmm? Don’t you know the Church is built upon the foundation of the prophets and the apostles? Don’t you know that you cannot build a Church without an apostle, for any Church without the apostle is a counterfeit Church?
10.        It is the Apostle that will tell you the fulfillment of any prophecy. It is His duty to announce to you the fulfillment of any prophecy and the end of the age. It is not the Prophet that will tell you everything, it is the Apostle because He holds the calendar in His hands. He is part and parcel of that calendar. He is the man that everybody will look at because He is the Angel of the Covenant of that age.
11.        The salvation call has already gone forth into the whole world and people have been rejecting the Voice from that time to their own destruction.
12.        Exodus 19 : 13-19, “There shall not a hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.
13.        And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes. And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at your wives.
14.        And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled. And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.
15.        And Mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him by a voice.” KJV.
16.        Ezekiel 33 : 3, “If when he sees the sword coming upon the land, he blows the trumpet and warn the people, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warnings, and the sword comes and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
17.        He heard the sound of the trumpet and he did not take warning; his blood shall be upon his head, but he who takes warning shall, save his life.”
18.        The trumpet has been sounding, the warning has gone forth and that is why when you read the “Last Trumpet” it ended with warning: “Thus saith the Lord.”
19.        EPISTLE: “WARNING, IF YOU LOVE YOUR LIFE, IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE WRATH OF GOD TO COME UPON YOU, IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO HAVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST WHICH IS SPIRITUAL, COME OUT FROM ALL DENOMINATIONS NO MATTER THE NAME BECAUSE NONE OF THE THEM HAS MADE AND WILL MEET MY REQUIREMENT FOR I HAVE CONCLUDED ALL OF THEM IN UNBELIEF.
20.        GO BACK TO MY WORDS, GO BACK TO THE HOLY BIBLE, GO BACK TO PENTECOST. THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOST.” Amen.

EVERY REVIVAL MUST CONFRONT A BEAST
This is your hour and power of darkness. Saints of God watch out, at a time like this, all you have to do is to girdle up your loins and be ready to face your death, to seal your faith your own blood has become one of the battles in our faith.   
2.           So you must be ready to die at an hour like this, seeing that there is no way we can preach this Gospel for you without dying. Martin Luther said that anybody that is preaching this Gospel must taste the first death at any moment.
3.           Acts of the Apostle 21 : 13, “Then Paul replied, what do you mean by weeping and breaking my heart like this, for I hold myself in readiness only to be arrested and bond and imprisoned at Jerusalem, and also [even] to die in the name of the Lord Jesus. AMP.
4.           He was not even afraid or shaken in mind, so the threat of prison and torture does nothing, for he made up his mind even to die and he paved the way for Martins.
5.           However, so many of you now, the thought of imprisonment or any other thing like torture will make you to shiver. Try to make sure that your anchor is anchoring deep in the Solid Rock.
6.           2 Corinthians 5 :15, “And he died for all so that all those who live might live no longer to and for themselves, but to and for Him who died and was raised again for their sake” AMP.
7.           “And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.” KJV.
8.           John 12 : 24, “ I assure you, most solemnly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the Earth and dies, it remains just one grain; it never becomes more but lives itself alone. But if it dies, it produces many others and yields a rich harvest” AMP.
9.           “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.” KJV.
10.        Brethren, do not be afraid of this time and what it holds for the Bride, the way up is down. Except you die there is no resurrection.  The earlier they do it the better.
11.        Keep on distributing the message. I learnt that Brother Isaac Onyema went somewhere and was trembling, then he hurriedly rushed out for he was afraid of being beheaded. The fearful and unbelieving will not inherit the kingdom of God. If mere giving of the book is making you to shiver, what if you are arrested to come and defend it? Which means you will die before you get there.
12.        MANY WILL DENY HIM ON THAT DAY, MAKE SURE THAT YOU WILL NOT BE MENTIONED AMONG THE PEOPLE THAT WILL DENY HIM; be courageous.
13.        Revelation 20: 4-6, “Then I saw thrones, and sitting on them were those to whom authority to act as judges and to pass sentence was entrusted.
14.        Also I saw the souls of those who have been slain with axes, beheaded for their witnessing to Jesus and for preaching and testifying for the word of God, and who had refused to pay homage to the beast or his statue and had not accepted his mark or permitted it to be stamped on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived again and ruled with Christ the Messiah a thousand years” AMP.
15.        “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
16.        But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” KJV.
17.        You see, no cross no crown. I told you that the way up is down. If you run away from being beheaded and scourged, and die in prison for the Gospel truth, then how do you expect to be there with Him? How do you expect to reign with Him? If you never died with Him, you can never expect a better resurrection. If you never suffer with Him, you can never reign with Him, so the way up is down.
18.         The choice is now yours, the decision is in your hands to make. I will not decide for you for I have given you the Word unadulterated. I have never withheld anything from you to enable you make your right choice and the choice you make determines where you will go, where you will spend your eternity.
19.        Matthew 10 : 32-33, “Therefore everyone who acknowledges me before men and confesses out of a state of oneness with me, I will also acknowledge him before my father who is in Heaven and confess that I am abiding with him. But whoever that denies and disowns me, I also will deny and disown him before my father who is in Heaven” AMP.
20.        “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” KJV.
21.        Revelation 6 : 9, “When the lamb broke open the fifth seal, I saw at the feet of the altar the souls of those whose lives have been sacrificed for adhering to the word of God and for the testimony they had borne” AMP.
22.        “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held.” KJV.
23.        Who are these people? Won’t you like to be one of them? You think these souls are the souls of dust? The Bible said they are souls of human beings who suffered because of this Gospel truth and in every generation it has been like that. Men that ever exalted the Word paid with their blood.
24.        Rome can never change, and the beast remains the beast. It is beast because it has no sense of reasoning.
25.        Matthew 10 : 38-39, “And he who does not take up his cross and follow me [ie, cleave steadfastly to me, confirming wholely to my example in living and if need be, in dying also is not worthy of me” AMP.
26.        “And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”
27.        What saw the people through? It is because they were seeing the whole thing beyond the grave. They were seeing the brighter future that lies ahead; considering that one as more important than the present suffering.
28.        Romans 8: 18, “But what of that, for I consider that the suffering of this present time [this present life] are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us, AMP.
29.        “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” KJV.
30.        This was the hope that saw in all these gallant men of faith true. And when it is coming to us, the Bible said that we should not think it strange, for it is a trial of our faith.
31.        All these years we have been claiming that we have been following Christ, so, something will come to taste our sincerity in the Lord and that is what is about to take place.
32.        First Peter 4 : 12-16, “Beloved, do not be amazed and bewildered at the fiery ordeal which is taken place to taste your quality, as though something strange, unusual, and alien to you and your position were befalling you.
33.        But insofar as you are sharing Christ’s sufferings, rejoice, so that when His glory full of radiance and splendor is revealed, you may also rejoice with triumph [exultantly].
34.        If you are censured and suffer abuse because you bear the name of Christ, blessed are you, happy, fortunate to be envied with life joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of your outward condition, because the spirit of glory, the spirit of God is resting upon you.
35.         On their part, He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or as a thief or any sort of criminal, or as a mischief maker (a meddler) in the affairs of others [infringing on their rights].
36.        But if one is ill-treated and suffers as a Christian, which he is contentiously called, let him not be ashamed, but give glory to God that he is deemed worthy to suffer in his name.” AMP.
37.        Acts of the Apostles 5 : 41, “So they went out from the presence of the council (Sanhedrin), rejoicing that they were being counted worthy [dignified by the indignity] to suffer shame and exposed to disgrace for the sake of His name” AMP.
38.        “And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.” KJV.
39.        I am showing you from the written Bible, men that suffered it and from history, you can lay hands on a lot of men whose names we know very well.
40.        That is why I started from the beginning of this message to show you the sufferings of human beings that lived in our day even some few centuries ago.
41.        We do not talk of people who lived with Paul and Silas, these people lived after Paul and Silas and because they believed Christ, they suffered what those people suffered also for being Christ-like can never change, forever and ever. It remains the same and that is why judging the whole thing from the Word, you can now boldly go to all these counterfeit Churches and their world leaders, tell them plainly that they are pagans.
42.        If you tell your friends where you are and what you have believed, they will drag you out. BELIEVE IT IF YOU CAN, ANYBODY THAT IS NOT IN THIS FAITH IS AN IDOL. If your mother is not in this Faith, she is a shrine. I am telling you the truth. If you look at her dressing, you will know that she is a shrine. Because for you to worship God, you must lose your life, lose everything that has made you something. You must be an object of mockery, a laughing stock among your mates.
43.        If Roman Catholic is right, where is the evidence? If Pentecostals are right, why is there no persecution all these years?
44.        Why is everybody keeping calm? That goes to show that they have compromised their faith.
45.        However, look at this little Church, the Bridal Faith holding this everlasting truth without wavering.
46.        What am I saying? If you are claiming to share the suffering with Him, you must be ready for persecution.
47.        Revelation 3: 21, “He who overcomes is victorious. I will grant him to sit beside me on my throne as I myself overcame, was victorious and sat down beside my father on His throne.” AMP.
48.        To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.” KJV.
49.        Have you seen it now? Thus, if you share in His persecution, you are equally ready to share in His throne. How many will like to share the throne with Christ?
50.        Look at men that were ready to share the throne, there were men like Whitecliff, in spite of all the drastic opposition, where there was no printing press, he was using ordinary long hand to recopy Bible and he recopied it into many books, sent them here and there.
51.        On the last day, if we fail God, won’t this man condemn us? Look at people like John Knocks who in spite of opposition of the council—Pope and the cardinals—preached extensively. Look at Jerome who said, “Rekindle the light before me, if I were afraid of it, I would not have followed you to this particular point.” Look at men like Martin Luther, Ireanus, Columba, and Martin Luther the king (Junior) of America, who was shot down in the pulpit while he was preaching against American government and their Apathy.
52.        Now if we go through the Bible, we can see in the Old Testament, men like Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, John the Baptist, James the brother of John the son of Zebedee; Peter, Paul, Bartholomew, Nathaniel and so on; they were courageous, all stood firm to defend their Faith. Moreover, all of them came into direct opposition with the beast because in every age, there was a beast.
53.        The beast of Daniel’s day was a Catholic. He was the beast of the days of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. The beast of Moses day was Pharaoh of Egypt. Joseph had a beast in his day also. Every revival must confront a beast, a man that has lost sense of reasoning.  
54.        That is why the brethren said, “Wait, there are still your brethren who are still on Earth, whose blood must be shed for this same Gospel truth. Who do you think these people are? Have we escaped from it?
55.        Saints of God, the die is cast and the showdown is here with us. We anchor our hope in Christ for the time of storm is here already. Are you shivering? There is no going back for the last inquisition is here with us. It is the hour of darkness.
56.        Why not pray and say, “God save me from this hour. Into your holy hands, I commit the keeping of my souls into your hands.”
57.        Why not say, “God, save me from this hour for I cannot do it with my own strength.” We have rolled into the period, there is no going back, and it is your hour and power of darkness. Why not say, “God, into your holy hands I commit the keeping of my soul; grant me eternal rest in thy glory.”
58.        Why not pray for power to bear what is coming ahead of you. Pray for boldness and utterance to defend this Gospel truth.    
59.            On this note, I say remain in your sanctified estate, remain blessed in Him eternally. Amen.
