BUILDING PLAN: GOD’S PLAN TO ESTABLISH HIS CHURCH

 Preached on 26TH SEPTEMBER 1993 At ABAGANA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN (THE LAMINATED HUMAN BEING) “Truth has no substitute” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

I am your Saviour. I am here to tell you things you will do to get eternal life. Without Me, there is no salvation; without Me, there is no eternal life. Believe it if you can…

-The Son of Man
 (ARE YOU A CHURCHGOER OR A WORSHIPER OF GOD PP 3.)
If there be any Church today and the reference is not drawn from the Church in the wilderness where our fathers were as members and received lively oracles to be given unto us, please do not pay attention there.
The Church is so important that God started the Church from the very beginning. In other words, the Founder of the Church from the very beginning has been God and God has never allowed the Church to move anyhow.
God, according to His eternal purpose, planned the coming of Christ and the establishment of the Church from the beginning of the world.

A BOOK BY THE FATHER OF ALL SPIRITS
THE ACTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
   
CHAPTER 1
BUILDING ACCORDING TO THE PERFECT PLAN
I want you to understand something. Watch David, after admiring his own personal house, and then watched the House of God which was ordinary tent, watched the Ark of God which represented God’s presence lying in the tent, David was not happy. He decided to build a mansion for God. You see, that was David. He did it on his own.
2.            Note it, if you are a friend to a minister, it is a very nice thing. If you are a friend to a servant of God, there is nothing wrong about it, but you are in danger. You are just like the wife of a Prophet whose life is also in danger.
3.            Always pray that God will let you understand when your friend is talking to you in a usual way he used to talk and when God is talking to you through him, otherwise you perish. Yet, God will never hold him guilty.
4.            As long as God liveth, if you are a friend to a servant of God, God must watch your motive, because God will allow you to stumble, to allow His servant to flog you, to rebuke you, to indict you in your presence and then God will watch you at that time.
5.            David was very friendly to Nathan and Nathan was God’s mouthpiece to the entire Israel. You can imagine such a relationship where Nathan can conveniently come and sit down in the same table, in the same family with David and his children, they will eat and have normal time.
6.            I can see the wife of David bringing food for them to eat yet it does not remove one pin (anything) from Nathan. It does not stop Nathan from becoming God’s servant, it does not stop Him from becoming God’s mouthpiece, yet he was God eating with David and also man eating with David. David eating with two beings.
7.            Learn something from this experience. No matter how familiar David was to Nathan, David still honored Nathan, respected Nathan, humbled himself before Nathan. Furthermore, David believe also that God was using Nathan and has been using Nathan, and will continue to use Nathan until He raises another vessel.
8.            Thus, no matter the way they were eating their food, having discussing, David was always careful. Note it, very, very careful.  David cannot say that because Nathan is doing this way, that he will do that way. If he tries it, he is finished.
9.            Now watch, David opened the conversation and said, “My friend Nathan, I am being troubled! God has given me victory over my enemies, and blessed me all these years. Moreover, I am living in this big house, how can I leave the Ark of God like this? I must build a very good house of Cedar, and I will transfer the Ark there, as a token of appreciation.”
10.         Watch Nathan saying, “Oh my friend God bless you! God bless you! Do it! Do it for the Lord has blessed you!” That was Nathan as a human being.
11.         Nathan did not say, “Let us inquire from God.” For Nathan as a man has spoken and David was rejoicing and then making plans. A little while he said, “My friend let me go.” Then David said, “Ok I will escort you! Let me get preparation for the cedar tree, for I will do the work hastily. Ok, God bless you too!”
12.         Along the way, the Lord said to Nathan, “My friend you are welcome! You have ate and drank. You have discussed with your friend. Have I ever complained to you that I am tired to live there? Have I ever accused anybody in Israel that they abandoned Me in the temple that my friend wants to build a house for Me? Imagine! Go and tell your friend that he should not do it. Rather after him I will raise a king as I have promised, and he will build a house for Me, then I will dwell there! He will build that house, not according to his own plan but according to that same plan which I gave unto my servant Moses in the wilderness.”
13.         Watch, if there must be a Church today, that Church must be a carbon copy of the Church in the wilderness. If there was a Church in the wilderness, God in the beginning was there; God at the middle was there, God at the end is there. It was the Church in the wilderness that was produced in the Acts of the Apostles. It must be the Church in the wilderness that will go into Rapture.
14.         How many will like to see that Church? How I wish that somebody would take a decision and say, “Until I see that Church today, I will not leave!”
15.         Watch out brethren, rejoice in the Lord. I say rejoice in the Lord for you are a peculiar people that in your day, in my own day, GOD COMING DOWN SO LOW AND WALK WITH MAN.
16.         Note, this man went to David and said, “My friend, thus saith the Lord: you will not build a house for Me for your hand is bloody; I am not happy. I, the Lord have not complained that I am tired of that place. Allow Me to remain there. When you die, I promise you, that kingship will never depart from your household for I will raise one of your sons who I have chosen, and he will build a house where I will live. He will not build according to his pattern; rather he will build a house according to that one which I also revealed unto your fathers in the wilderness.”
17.         You see, David was very much interested in building that house. For the Bible recorded that in spite of that, David said no matter what the Lord said, that he will contribute a little: “I will gather the wood, set the wood aside so that when I die, my son will know that I have already started to prepare something, so that he will never forget the instruction.” For that, David started gathering some cedar tree and some precious filaments.
18.         I can see David, when Solomon appeared, he said, “My son Solomon, you will be a king after me. Come here! Look at that thing, you know it! I would have built a big house for the Lord but He said that I should not build it. Nevertheless, you are privileged that you will build it. Remember, look at these things, for they are what I have gathered for this house. Let these things be a memorial and a constant reminder that will remind you that you have a duty to undertake.”
19.         Watch out, David did not say, “My friend, why did you tell me to go ahead before? Can God speak double? Go and inquire again because I want to be sure! How can God say no when He said that I am the man after His heart.” However, David had discernment, for he saw Nathan as man and later saw Nathan as God. That is why he said, “So be it according to the Will of God.”
20.         Now watch, another situation arose, David committed crime, watch his friend Nathan coming down and they were eating. He may say, “My friend, I believe you travelled a long distance! Let my wife bring food for you.” But Nathan will say, “No! There is trouble in the city! There was a rich man that did an evil thing in the city; so please keep the food first and let us discuss the issue.”
21.         Then he continued, “This man must be a wicked man! He had a lot of sheep and there was another little man there with only one sheep. This rich man had a visitor and instead of killing one of his sheep, he went and took the one of the poor man. Moreover, he did not stop there, he killed that man also.”
22.         Then David shouted, “In this city Israel? In this land that I am leading? Where is that man first? We will share his corpse. His flesh will be shared among all the people publicly! Just mention his name!” Nathan did not say, “Get me food first!”
23.         Nathan looked at him and said, “David thou art the man!” Then David’s eyes opened. David did not say, “Who told you?” Because he had not the spirit of Saul. David had God’s spirit; the spirit of truth, the spirit of sincerity, for David met someone that he cannot bribe. Well, he can entice Nathan but how about bribing his conscience?
24.         All of you that are in this Faith, no man can bribe His conscience. Anything that you have done, if you have spoken the whole truth, you know. If you have not spoken the whole truth, you equally know. Nobody can bribe Him, both young and old, married and unmarried, on any matter at all.
25.         You know your condition, you know yourselves. When you are asked how did this thing happened, you can tell your stories. There is something in you that you cannot bribe, and as long as that thing is there condemning you, watch, anytime your name is called, your heart will jump into your stomach. If you have committed any sin, you know the sin, it is very clear before you and you know that as long as that sin is there, you are not having fellowship with God; your spirit is bearing you witness.
26.         The moment a minister jumps to this pulpit, your prayer will change: “If only you will spare me! If only you will spare me! If only you will spare me!” Your prayer changes, but devil will not allow you to understand that you can never receive forgiveness without confession. There is no way you can receive forgiveness of sin without confession.”
27.         In addition, half confession is as dangerous as death. Half confession is not successful reconciliation. When you confess fully, all your sins to God, you know. Whatever you are doing in this Faith, we do not understand but you understand yourself. If your motive is right, your conscience will tell you.
28.         You may say, “Well, I did not see it that way!” But already in your conscience you know very well.
29.         David picture became clear. For a time came when David died, Solomon took over. When we saw what happened in first Kings chapter 5 verse 1-6: “And Hiram king of Tyre sent his servants unto Solomon; for he had heard that they had anointed him king after the reign of his father: for Hiram was ever a lover of David.
30.         And Solomon sent to Hiram, saying, Thou knowest how that David my father could not build a house unto the name of the LORD his God for the wars which were about him on every side, until the LORD put them under the soles of his feet.
31.         But now the LORD my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor evil occurrence.
32.         And, behold, I purpose to build a house unto the name of the LORD my God, as the LORD spoke unto David my father, saying, Thy son, whom I will set upon thy throne in thy room, he shall build a house unto my name.
33.         Now therefore command thou that they hew me cedar trees out of Lebanon; and my servants shall be with thy servants: and unto thee will I give hire for thy servants according to all that thou shalt appoint: for thou knowest that there is not among us any that can skill to hew timber like unto the Sidonians.” KJV.
34.         At your convenient time, read chapter 5 and chapter 6, read up to chapter 8. The Lord will teach you very well.
35.         Now watch, as long as David was facing war, there was no room to build a house. David was mindful of saving the lives of the people. He had no time to build a house.
36.         However, his son Solomon came on the throne, David finished the whole battles and his son Solomon was now having his rest. Now that nobody is troubling Solomon from left and right, north and south, he can settle down, concentrate on that building plan, then build a perfect house for God, because he is no longer in a haste.
37.         A time came when the Church had no rest, enemies were left and right, the Church was busy, ministers were busy to redeem the brethren from the hands of their enemies. There was no rest, no time to sit down and then build a house where God will now stay, where life will fit in. The people have been redeemed but there is no place to empty them.
38.         Now all our enemies are now unto our footstool. The Lord has started commanding the ministers saying, “Now, do not allow these people to remain in the wilderness. Erect a house where they will fit in.”
39.         But look the most important thing, it is not building a house that matters, but it is building according to the revealed plan. Some will build outside the plan, but somebody must build according to the perfect plan.
40.         We must know where the model was built. If the model was in Jerusalem, it means that if anybody wants to build, he will simply drive to Jerusalem, get the plan, go anywhere and start building.
41.         For that was why when Paul was somewhere building a house, after sixteen years, he travelled back to Jerusalem to examine that building again, and check very well with what he is erecting in Ephesus.
42.         If the original is in Jerusalem, the fake must be in Rome. What is more, Satan is always trying to imitate Jerusalem. If the whole world is going to Jerusalem to worship God, Satan will like to divert the attention of some people to go to Rome and worship him.
43.         I want you to get something now: if that one that is in Jerusalem had precious metals, gold and silver which represented calcium that time, Satan will not allow his own to be poor, his own must contain the shape of the world because he is controlling the world. While Jerusalem will control the treasure of the children of God, the Elect.
44.         If any is in need, he rushes to Jerusalem, if the people in the world need something, they go to Rome.
45.         NOTE IT, THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH IN JERUSALEM IS CHRIST, WHILE THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH IN ROME IS ANTICHRIST.
46.         I want to open your eyes the more. If the building in Jerusalem lasted for seven years, Satan also completed his own in seven years also; so that when you look at them they will look the same.
47.         If the one in Jerusalem is not roofed with iron or zinc, if it contains dome, the one in Rome must contain dome. If the one in Jerusalem was built with bricks, the one in Rome must be bricks also.
48.         When I will tell you on the origin of the Bible, I will tell you how the Bible originated, what Bible suffered, and how it was preserved till today.
49.         Now watch, it not is building that matters but it is building according to the revealed plan. When they were building, they built with ordinary physical structure. They did not know that the Church of God is more than a carnal building. It is a spiritual structure. The plan of the building is a spiritual plan; that was where they missed it.
50.         Note, when Solomon started building, after receiving the instruction, he used nothing but cedar tree according the instruction that was given to him. Though he was very rich, he could not change his. For all that the Lord said that must be inside the temple, Solomon did according to the perfect plan.
51.         When you compare 1 Kings chapter 6 and Exodus chapter 25, Hebrews chapter 9, you will see that it is just the same thing. No mistake was seen.
52.         Now watch, when Solomon completed the house of God, he gathered everything and he said, “Today the Owner of the building will come down to take His house. If I have built it according to the plan, we will know today. If I have built outside the plan, we will equally know today.”
53.         What is more, on that day Solomon stepped into the Temple, while he was at the outer part of the Court together with the people of Israel, the Bible said that the glory of God came down and mounted on the high place. All eyes saw the glory. Some were calling it Cloud; some called it smoke, for it covered the whole temple that people could not see again. That was the day the Lord accepted the key and then looking at the plan, He marked it good.
54.          That is why He remembered the promise He gave to Solomon, He said, “Solomon, I have chosen you after your father, when you sin against me I will punish you. Nevertheless, I will never withdraw my power from you, like I did unto Saul.” You see the difference?
55.         WHEN YOU COMMIT SIN, IF YOU ARE AN ELECT, YOU WILL BE PUNISHED. AS LONG AS GOD LIVETH, HE WILL NEVER WITHDRAW HIS HANDS FROM YOU LIKE HE DID UNTO SAUL. THAT IS WHY WHEN YOU COMMIT SIN YOU BECOME TROUBLED UNTIL YOU MAKE IT RIGHT. YOU CAN NEVER HAVE REST. YOU WILL BE UNDER TORMENT DAY AND NIGHT. IT IS GOD’S HAND. GOD KNOWS THE MOMENT HE WILL REMOVE HIS HAND FROM YOU, YOU PERISH. MOREOVER, NONE OF HIS ELECTS SHOULD PERISH BUT THEY WILL BE PUNISHED.
56.         If it means punishing you unto death, if that is the only way to bring your soul back, he will do it. If there must be a building today approved of God, that building must have God’s plan and not human plan. It must be built upon the Solid Rock which is Christ: The wall must be measured, every roof must be measured, the height must be measured, if it does not measure up to standard, God cannot recognize it. Amen.



CHAPTER 2
GOD’S PLAN TO ESTABLISH HIS CHURCH (1)
I am speaking on the topic called, “God’s Plan to Establish the Church”. Until we know His plan for establishing that Church, we will not know the importance of that Church anytime it is established.
2.            From the beginning of the world according to His eternal purpose, God planned the coming of Jesus Christ and has also planned the establishment of the Church. From the beginning of Creation, it has been in His eternal plan.
3.            Ephesians chapter 3 verse 9-11, “And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
4.            To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in Heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” KJV.
5.            All principalities and powers are under the Church, everything about the mystery of God ends with the establishment of the Church, yet it is hidden in ages.
6.            Note verse 9 again, “And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.” KJV.
7.            Note, to make all men see what is the fellowship of His mystery. Is it like that in your Bible?
8.            All men must see the plan of God which He made from the foundation of the world. God hiding this ministry in Him, this ministry was hidden in God from the foundation of the world. If God started to propose this thing from the beginning of the world and He hid it in Himself, and in your day, He is revealing Himself, are you not the most great people?
9.            Can you see why you are better than all these people? There is something that God is revealing in your day which these people that are making noise do not know, but you know it. Why you have no excuse? We will know that mystery. Fellowshipping with God is a spiritual thing and it is hidden for it is only one Church that only knows.
10.         Which Church will know it? The true approved Church.
11.         The time and efforts used in planning anything show the importance of that thing. If you want to be a medical doctor, it is going to take you up to twelve years of intensive planning. It will take your time, your money and your effort. If you want to learn any work, you must spend some years learning it. You must experience many things. The time and effort spent for anything will tell you the importance of that thing.
12.         God from the beginning of the world, started planning, spending time and efforts to build a Church wherein lies His mystery. You see the importance of the Church to God! That God will not allow the whole world to know about it, that even Satan could not peep into it; God hid it in Himself waiting for a certain time.  
13.         When you know the importance of the Church, you must be very, very careful. The Church was promised in the olden days, during the time of our father Abraham. In the time of Isaac and Jacob, God promised His Church. God gradually began it, unfolding it, this is His eternal purpose. Now He is unfolding it gradually, bringing it into view.
14.         To establish the Church, let us see Genesis 12 verse 1-10, “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee:
15.         And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the Earth be blessed.
16.         So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
17.         And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
18.         And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land. And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there built he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.
19.         And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he built an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.
20.         And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south. And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.” KJV.
21.         From the beginning, God had purposed it; He separated Abraham from the sinful world, from his relations and said, “I am going to make you a great nation,” which means he is going to be a nation in another nation. A separated nation from another nation. And from Abraham now God is going to raise up a family and in this family all the whole nations in the world were blind to it. Anybody outside this family will never receive the blessing.
22.         In other words, for you to partake of God’s blessing, you must be a member of this family. Did you get it? God had already purposed it. And we will know whether we are that family or not. We will know whether we belong to Abraham or not. We will know where the whole nations will receive their blessing.
23.         Galatians chapter 3 verse 7-9, “Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
24.         And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.” KJV.  
25.         Note, “in thee shall all the nations be blessed.” All that be of faith, they all belong to Abraham. Which faith? The faith of Christ. For if ye are Christ, then you are Abraham’s seeds and are heirs according to the Promise. Anybody outside this family of Abraham does not know about this Promise. God purposed the Church starting from the time of our father Abraham.
26.         Verse 14, “That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”  KJV.
27.         Verse 26-29, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28.         There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”  KJV.
29.         You can never be a heir unless you are a member of Abraham’s family. You must be a partaker, a full member of that family.
30.         Watch, if Abraham will excommunicate you, you have no promise, you have nothing to expect, you have lost all that would have been your own.
31.         Right now, every nation, the Jews, the Greeks, the Gentiles, men and women alike, all that want God’s blessing must receive it through Christ; because Christ is from Abraham. Moreover, as many as are Christ, they are all from Abraham. They are that nation, that blessed nation.
32.         Note, this is a teaching, it is not preaching. Follow it as I tailor it down.
33.         We have started with a nation and that nation is not yet named, it is Abraham’s nation. And later that nation will be called Israel. later that nation will be called God’s own nation and the people there will be God’s own people.
34.         There is no Law against these people now, but a little while they will have a Law telling them not to mix with other people for they are a different people, a separated people from other people—as we progress—until we come where God will name it.
35.         Acts of the Apostles chapter 7 verse 38, “This is he, that was in the Church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us.” KJV.
36.         Who was that person that was in that Church? Christ, the Head of the Church. He was in the Church in the wilderness and He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He will be in the Church in the end-time.
37.         Who were the members of that Church? Our fathers. They were members of that Church. The Angel was in that Church, their fathers was there. If there must be a Church today, the Archangel must be there.
38.         We are heading somewhere. The Church was prophesied during the time of the Prophets. In the time of Abraham, there was no law. Now in the time of the Prophets, let us see what they were saying.
39.         The Church prophesied during the time of the Prophets, in the time of the Jews, to preserve Israel for the purpose of establishing them as His own nation, God separated them from other people by giving them the Law which prevented them from mixing with other people. Note it, to preserve these people, to be God’s own people, God severed them from other people by giving them a Law that they will never, never mix.
40.         If there is a Church today, if God preserved that Church that time by preserving that Church from mix-multitude, the Church today must be preserved by separating her from mix-multitude.
41.         If God severed His own people that time from mix-multitude and today He allowed them to mix anyhow, that is not God. His people will be defiled; then He has no right to condemn others. If there must be a nation called God’s nation today, that nation must be a peculiar one, the people in that nation must be peculiar, they must be severed from other people, they must be warned never to mix with the denomination, with the mix-multitude.
42.          Are you following the plan? God’s plan for establishing the Church. There is a reason why God is establishing the Church. Amen.





CHAPTER 3
GOD’S PLAN TO ESTABLISH HIS CHURCH (2)
GOD IS ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING GREAT. THE MOMENT HE FINISHES BUILDING THE CHURCH, THE LAND IS ALREADY THERE, THE HEADSTONE WILL COME DOWN AND THAT WILL BE THE SOUND OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS.
2. THE VOICE OF THUNDER IS THE VOICE OF APPROVAL; IT IS THE GLORY OF GOD THAT WILL BE SEEN ON EARTH BECAUSE IT IS THE SOUND OF THE THUNDER THAT WILL RAPTURE THE CHURCH, BECAUSE IT IS CONNECTED WITH THE SECOND COMING OF GOD WHICH IS TO RAPTURE THE CHURCH HOME; BEFORE HIS WRATH WILL FALL UPON THE CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENCE.
3. IT IS THE GLORY OF THE LORD THAT WILL OPEN THE GRAVES AND THEY THAT DIED IN CHRIST WILL COME OUT. IT IS THE GLORY OF THE LORD THAT WILL VEIL EVERY BROTHER, EVERY SISTER LIKE IT VEILED MOSES AND THEN THE CHURCH WILL MEET HER BRIDEGROOM WITH THE GLORIFIED BODY. NOTE, GLORIFIED BODY WITH A GLORIFIED CHRIST.
4. Deuteronomy chapter 5 verse 1-3, “And Moses called all Israel, and said unto them, Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that ye may learn them, and keep, and do them.
5. The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. The LORD made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day.” KJV.
6. This covenant was not made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, this one is now been made to the people in the wilderness; the Church in the wilderness. What is more, all of them must hear and will obey the statute.
7. Verse 3, “The LORD made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day.”  
8. Acts of the Apostles chapter 10 verse 28, “And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.” KJV.
9. It was a law that none of them should ever try as a Jew to mix with other people. That was the statute that God gave them in the wilderness. If any Jew ever tries such a thing, he is cut off from among his brothers. You will see why we are blessed after this message! These people continued waiting for the revelation of God, because God had already planned the coming of Christ from the foundation of the world because He is the promised Messiah, not Moses, not Abraham.
10.       What is more, when that Messiah appeared, the Jewish people rejected Him. Seeing that they rejected Him, He went to the Gentiles. That is how He came to the Gentiles. Moreover, when He went to the Gentiles, He elected a people unto Himself, and when He elected those people, the same love He gave to the Jews, He transferred it to them, the Gentiles.
11.       The way He would have dealt with the people of Israel is exactly the way He is dealing with us today, in order to provoke them to jealousy. Whatever we are doing now, if what we are doing is original—which I believe that it is the original—if it is exactly what the people of Israel would have been doing now, but till today they are veiled, they are still blind waiting for the day when Christ will judge them and that is when their eyes will open. By then the Gentile’s time is over.
12.       The original Church in the wilderness was the Jewish people, the original Church was promised Rapture. Seeing that they neglected it, He went to people that accepted Him, and these people now will receive that benefit through Israel; because the Messiah did not appear to the Gentiles rather the Jewish people.
13.       Somebody was asking us question and I said that this man want to go into deeper things when he should have gone into the elementary part of it. That was at Nsugbe.
14.        The question was: Why Christianity spread more than Judaism? We are going further. The Prophet prophesied that our God will establish a better Covenant.
15.       We saw that in Jeremiah 31 verse 31-34, God promised also through the mouths of the Prophets; He promised a new Kingdom which men of all nations will unite together to serve God.
16.       Psalms 22 verse 27-31, “All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. For the Kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the nations.
17.       All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
18.       A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation. They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.” KJV.
19.       Note it, all the nations in the world will come in if they want to worship God. Nobody will worship Him outside this Kingdom where He has placed His Name.
20.       Note the words that are coming out: Church, Kingdom, family and nation. God is using these words to qualify His people, to qualify the Church. As we progress you see them one by one. The Kingdom of God is among men and here among you. There must be somebody in that Kingdom. Kingdom means a domain. There must be a Kingdom meaning a domain.
21.       Psalms 10 verse 17, “LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear: KJV.
22.       Note this Scripture very carefully. We are progressing. This prophecies were fulfilled in Christ and His Church. He established the new commandment according to Hebrews 8 verse 6-13. Then He began reigning over His Kingdom which is the Church.
23.       Acts of the Apostles chapter 2 verse 30-36, “Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
24.       He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
25.       Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. For David is not ascended into the Heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
26.       Until I make thy foes thy footstool. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.” KJV.
27.       Watch this Scripture; where is Christ sitting? On the right hand side of Power of Majesty, in that throne. One day I will speak on “The Throne of God.”
28.       In that day John the revelator saw only but one person and that person had a Name, and that Name was written upon Him, “The Word of God”. When you get to the “Throne of God", you will see Somebody there and His Name is the Word of God. Is it like that in your Bible?
29.       He is the King of the Kingdom. If God is ruling the Kingdom, whosoever that is exalted to be in that Kingdom, he is the king controlling that Kingdom. He has given you power above all principalities and powers to rule in His Church.
30.       Ephesians 1 verse 19-23, “And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the Heavenly places,
31.       Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
32.       And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all.” KJV.
33.       Who is the Head? Who is the Ruler? We are handling teaching and not preaching. Watch where we are tailoring the whole thing to. Any one that you cannot understand, do not bother yourself too much for there are people in our midst that will catch it and define it in the way you will understand it. Amen.

CHRIST’S KINGDOM
I have earlier announced it that I am entering into deeper things of this Kingdom which made Me to have a deeper experience with God. If they have known the owner of the Church, how He laboured, purposed it, preserved it, they would have been mindful of their membership in the House of God. Because what we are having here is a shadow of the Heavenly one. Worship started in Heaven and it is going to complete in Heaven.
2.            In Heaven we must worship God, for He created us to worship Him forever and ever. Why you must be mindful of this Church if actually you are a member of the Gospel. First of all, identify the Body.
3.            First Corinthians 15 verse 23-26, “But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
4.            Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the Kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
5.            For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.” KJV.
6.            Which Kingdom did Christ deliver unto His Father? Which Kingdom? Which that Christ is already controlling the Kingdom, and where is that Kingdom? Is that Kingdom in Heaven or on Earth? If it is in Heaven there is no need surrendering to His father. If it is on Earth, it means that one day, Christ as Emmanuel will deliver that Kingdom to the Owner.  
7.            The same that ascended is the same that descended on the Pentecost Day. Moreover, since that day He has remained with His people.
8.            Let me tell you; some of us will go into the grave again with Him, only to resurrect with Him also. While to some that have Him already here, at the trumpet sound He will translate them also. Because He is a spirit dwelling in us all at the same time. He is distributing Himself according to His own measure.
9.            Watch God and the Church, if God is going to deliver this Kingdom and you are not part of the Kingdom, on the day that He is going to deliver it you will not be there. So if you are operating outside the Kingdom, you are not in Him. The Church is often described in the holy Bible as a Kingdom.
10.         Mathew 13 verse 11, “He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it is not given.” KJV.
11.         Verse 18 to 19, “Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the Kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. KJV.
12.         Mathew 16 verse 18 through 19, “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on Earth shall be bound in Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heaven. KJV.
13.         Which Kingdom is God referring to? That same Kingdom that Christ will surrender to His Father, that is the Kingdom that He is referring to. In addition, whatever it will cost you to be there, you do it. If you are found outside that Kingdom, you are not His.
14.         The president of Nigeria has his own Kingdom, equally Christ has His Kingdom. Somebody is not getting me.
15.         Colossians chapter 1 verse 13, “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of his dear Son. KJV.
16.         God has delivered us from darkness and has translated us into the Kingdom of His own dear Son, where His Son is ruling. Where is that Kingdom where Christ is the King? Where is that Kingdom where Christ is ruling?
17.          The Bible said that it is in the Church; where you will enter and you will cut off from anything that is happening in the world. You are deprived from the traditions of the world. Severed and prohibited from mixing with other people, you have become a peculiar people, a holy nation.
18.         Christ ruling you in everything, controlling your conversation, your eating, your drinking, your dressing, everything, your family life, your village life because there is a Ruler ruling you. If not that Ruler, you would have been like other people.
19.         If a human being is ruling you, you would have jumped long, long time ago. Moreover, this Kingdom which is here, which He Himself being Christ will deliver on that day to His Father, He will say, “Look at them!” When we shall be coming with our white robes, and the angels will say, “Who are these people?”
20.         And Christ will say to them, “These are those people whom I died for, they are cleansed by my blood,” and then He will deliver them unto His Father; the people He purchased.
21.         You have been purchased but you have not been adopted until you see yourself there. You have been paid for, you are just like a woman that is married but you have not lived with your husband. You are waiting for a day when friends and well-wishers will come and they will say bye-bye, enjoy your husband. Never to depart again, those people will witness it.
BE A PARTAKER OF THE KINGDOM
22.         Are you in this most holy Faith escorting people? Are you a bridesmaid, or best man? For a best man is better than a bridesmaid. If you are a wise lady, you will not accept to be a bridesmaid, and if you are wise man, it is be better that you be a forerunner, for the best man is always in front paving the way, but in the End-time Message, there are a lot of carryovers, for the best man will be in the end and then the bridegroom will be in the front, show-casing himself without any man paving way for him. Let the man be in the front for he is the forerunner.
23.         That is why when you watch in the Assemblies of God, in the denomination, they reproduce a perfect guide. When they want to bring the man in, the best man will come out dancing with hand gloves and you will be looking. If you are careful you may call him the bridegroom.
24.         The drums will be beating, singing and the man will be dancing, but watch, no flower girls. A little while when you get to the middle, you will see somebody, he will peep and then move back for he is not in a haste. He will be slow and steady, slow and steady, a little while he will emerge, and immediately he emerges the beating of the drum changes.
25.         Watch him coming, no mistake about it, why? He paid for the dance, and they will play according to his taste and he will dance to his satisfaction. However, the man that paved the way, he told people to get ready, that somebody is coming behind me, “a man that is greater than me and the moment he comes, I will decrease while he will increase,” and he will tell the congregation, “Look at him.” That is why he vanishes before the bridegroom.
26.         A little while you see him changing position, he will be busy, putting people everywhere, but watch the bridesmaid, she does not help in any way. The bride will sit down and the bridesmaid will equally sit down gathering the cloths everywhere, with gloves everywhere.
27.         Watch the dancing; you will see that some of them dance more than the bride and the bridegroom. Watch them, when they are going home, the bride will take seat in the vehicle, the bride will equally sit down. The best man does not care for he is coming home anyhow, because the bridegroom is going home with his wife. What is the need sitting down with him again?.
28.         I hope nobody will like to be a bridesmaid or best man? We will enjoy our Heavenly places. For the Bible said that all of us are sitting in Heavenly places in Christ, enjoying Heavenly places on Earth.
29.         God pouring those blessings because of us, because in Christ all of us are blessed, for outside Christ nobody is blessed. What if after enjoying the blessings, on the day of Rapture you will say bye-bye, you will be a witness to Rapture and you are not a partaker? I want to be a partaker of the Kingdom. I do not want to be a witness.
30.         If you say, “God I want to witness Rapture,” you will see it happen, then you will tell others. Therefore, you may be sitting down in our midst only to be a witness. Be a partaker and not a witness.
GOD’S PLAN CONCERNING HIS CHURCH
31.         Revelation chapter 1 verse 9, “I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the Kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. KJV.
32.         In which Kingdom? He is writing to the Churches, he said that I am also your brother in patience and in sufferings; a member of the same Kingdom, and all that are in that Kingdom, the Bible called them kings and priests.
33.         We are not the King; He is the King and the King of kings. The Bible called Christ the King of kings. Have you seen the revelation? If we are kings, then He is King of kings. If we are priests, He is the High Priest.
34.         John was a member and he was certain and sure. If you are a member of this Kingdom you must be certain, for if you are not certain, you are a best man or a bridesmaid. If you are a priest, it means that you must offer holy sacrifice unto God for that is the only duty of a priest.
35.         A priest must be holy, blameless because he is serving a living God. He must live a shining example to those that are following him. However, when you are living a bad example you are not a priest, you are not offering a holy sacrifice.
36.         That is why the Bible said, “I beseech you brethren by the mercies of God that you present your body, a living sacrifice, holy; pure which is your reasonable services.”
37.         We are continuing, the Prophet also predicted the time, not only the time, they also prophesied the place where this Church will be established. The Prophet Isaiah prophesied that the Church would be established during the last days in Jerusalem. This Church will not be built anyhow. I want you to know the importance of the Church to God.
38.         Very soon I will enter into the Church. It is just like laying a foundation, to know why God established the Church, so that when the Church is established you will be mindful of the way you stay there lest you will be cut off and you will not know.
39.         God in His eternal purpose said through the mouth of the Prophet Isaiah the place and the time the Church will be established. Men that were wise, they were keeping vigil just like Jesus’ birth was prophesied.
40.         God said that it must be in Bethlehem in Judea and said the time also. Others forgot it after many years, but there remaineth some wise men, a remnant, that must get the promise.
41.         They were awake when they saw the star, they made no mistake. They said that they have seen the star and have confirmed it with the Holy Scriptures, “We have come to worship the Lord, doubting nothing.” When they got there, they saw the Messiah.
42.         Isaiah chapter 2 verse 1-3, “The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
43.         And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” KJV.
44.         The Church is often called the House of God. In the Bible, the Church is often called the House of God, and Isaiah said that it will be established in Jerusalem in the last days.
45.         There is no other time that the Church will come into view except in the last days. Any other Church that will come out before then is a false Church for God works with time. He even did it in the time of our forefathers: He gave a Law in the Church in the wilderness concerning that same Church. He prophesied it in the time of the Prophets.
46.         You see how God is still planning concerning this Church? And He had already planned for the coming of His son Jesus who will be the ruler of that Church.
47.         He did not want any human being to handle it, because He Himself established it.
48.         First Timothy 3 verse 15, “But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the Church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. KJV.
49.          Is it Bible? You must know how to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the Church of the living God. You are the spiritual temple, you as an individual. Do not worry, in this body, this is the body that was promised Rapture. You as a spiritual temple you are a member of this body.
50.         If you conduct yourself according to the conduct and order of that Body and that Body is the house of God, which is the Church of God, which is the Kingdom of God, which is a nation in a nation, which is a peculiar people, His royal priesthood, a separated people from other people, they are saints.
51.         Brethren are you getting the revelation? It appears that this teaching is getting higher! Is it higher than you! Relax your mind! I will do my best, God helping Me. Amen.



CHAPTER 5
THE PROMISED KINGDOM OF GOD
I know the deeper things that are of the Church. You see why God called it mystery. The denomination does not know what we are talking. Satan knew it. That is why you see him attacking ahead of time, attacking in different phases because he knows what follows.
2.            After showing you Church, I will go into another teaching which Satan has peeped into already, which is the organization of the Church.
3.            After that I will organize Elders and Deacons in the Church according to the way that the Lord has revealed to Me by His Word. And by so doing the Lord has finished His work in the Church by restoring it back to the Apostolic Foundation.
4.            Now you know what it means to build the Lord’s super. You know the entrance into the Lord by baptism; you know the practices of the Church in teaching, in giving.
5.            You know the practice in songs and praises. You now know what the Church is all about. Your life has no problem again because your live bears witness that you come out of that family. For the Church is the family of God and all that are born in that family are God’s children.
6.            You see why you could not perish because the Church is your umbrella. Your insurance is the Church. Thus, when a man is lost in the Church, he is cut off from the Church, cut off from the blood of Christ. Moreover, wherever you are, you are a member of that Church if you continue steadfast in the Faith in keeping to the principles of that Body.
7.             When you break the principles of that Body; you have excommunicated yourself from that Body because you are walking contrary to the Word of God.  We have seen the Church as the house of God established in the Bible also.
8.            Hebrews chapter 3 verse 6, “But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. KJV.
9.            It requires no interpretation for God has interpreted His Word. Nevertheless, God Himself specifically told us the time of His establishment of His Church. That His house which is the Church, God Himself told us the exact time.
10.         Because Isaiah said that it is going to be in the last days and in Jerusalem. Which means if it is in Rome, it is outside the Bible.
11.         If it is in France, it is outside the Bible. If it comes out before the last days, it is not original. It is the first white horse. Now through the mouth of Prophet Daniel, God told us the exact time.
12.         Let us go into the Scriptures; I am going to pick the silent points. I will draw your attention to specific areas but in block.
13.          Daniel chapter 2 verse 45, “Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.” KJV.
14.         Note, you will notice the following illustrations: number one, the image. You will notice the image. I want to help you to understand the time which God told us. Besides, let us see whether the Bible fulfilled so that when you tell somebody what will happen in our time, we will be very, very serious, we will not play again.
15.         Note, you will notice the image, and you will notice the four kingdoms. Verse 36-40, “This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
16.         And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all.
17.         Thou art this head of gold. And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
18.         And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things : and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.” KJV.
19.         Watch in the days of the fourth Kingdom, which is the last Kingdom, God was to establish His Kingdom or the Church.
20.         Watch Daniel chapter 2 verse 44, “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.” KJV.
21.         Upon this Rock, I will build a Church and the gate of Hell shall never prevail against it; that the Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed. When it starts growing, it grew above every other tree. Others are at its footstool. Other Churches were below the Church of God.
22.         All that existed before this one, but when it came out first, it was very minor, a little thing at Npkor or at Abagana or at Obosi or at uguwmba Street; just very little thing. However, when it started growing it was noised abroad.
23.         Aba is now under, Lagos under, every other one under. God continued magnifying that Church. If you do not follow it in the spirit, you will miss it.
24.         Watch what I am saying, in the days of the fourth kingdom, which must be broken into ten kingdoms, and in the days of each of these kingdoms, God will establish His own Kingdom, and His Kingdom will swallow these other splitted kingdoms.
25.         In the last days, there will be many denominations but His Kingdom will swallow all. Other kingdoms will divide but this one will remain the United Kingdom. If this Church went into apostasy, if this Church was a falling away, anytime it is restored, it is going to be restored in the midst of denominations and it is going to start in a gradual way, and swallow other spitted kingdoms. In the last day before it will be restored, others must have divided into Kingdoms. Amen.
26.         Before the emergence of this first kingdom, other kingdoms of the denominations have divided. This spiritual Kingdom coming back again. Which we are.
27.         Watch, the time it is coming up when every other Church in the end-time will be divided into pieces, when Church is named after the leader, “Brother Emma Church,” “Brother Emeka Church,” “Egwu Church.” Church has taken individual names, no exception. However, a kingdom must emerge called the Church.
28.         Now let us watch prophecy. Daniel identified the first three kingdoms, number one, “The Kingdom of Gold. He called “Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon,” you will see it in Daniel 2:36-38, you will see also in Daniel 1 verse 1.
29.         The second kingdom, you will see it in Daniel 2 verse 32 and 39, that second kingdom was described with silver, and it is named in Daniel 5:25-31 as Medes and Persians’ empire.
30.         Daniel 5:25-31, “And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.
31.         TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians. Then commanded Belshazzar, and they clothed Daniel with scarlet, and put a chain of gold about his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him, that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.
32.         In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain. And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old.KJV.
33.         God named the kingdom as Medes and Persians.  Look at number three, the third kingdom, the third kingdom is brass. You will notice it in verse 32 of Daniel chapter 2 and in verse 39 also, in Daniel 8 verse 20:21, Daniel identified it as a Grecian Empire.
34.         Daniel 8:20-21, “The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia. And the rough goat is the king of Greece: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.” KJV.
35.         Daniel identified all of them one by one. Now all these tributes in the world today, all the European histories, all the Roman histories, all histories about the Church will bear witness of the emergence of these kingdoms on Earth according to these orders laid down in the Bible.
36.         The whole history in the world will bear witness that there was king Nebuchadnezzar who ruled Babylon, that built a kingdom called Babylon and this kingdom was destroyed by the Persians.
37.         In addition, after Medes and Persians, there was another kingdom that destroyed Persia, and that was Greece, under the leader, Alexander the Great who wanted to rule the whole world. Check your histories, it is in line with the Bible histories. Without God, there is no government. Whatever that will happen tomorrow in Nigeria, God has told us about it.
38.         One day I will open the Bible and show you where Nigeria falls. God has programmes concerning Sudan, Ethiopia, Libya, Egypt. Note it, God has programmes concerning them all.
39.         Let me tell you where we are going to inherit at last, in eternity, extended up to the Nile Valley with River Euphrates demarcating it, the first Garden of Eden; note, the Garden of Eden is here. I can draw the map to everybody holding the Bible, holding the map of the world, draw the map of Eden before everybody; I read geography.  
40.         I will tell you that there is nowhere in the Bible God promised Abraham Rapture. In addition, if you are heir according to the Promise, will you inherit something outside what was promised the man? Whatever that is promised Abraham is what you are going to inherit. There is nowhere that God promised him Heaven.
41.         We are spending our vacation in Heaven just for a while to enable God finished with the unbelievers. Then in eternity, He will bring us back to Earth. The Earth is for man, the Heaven is for God. God did not create this Earth to be empty. When He must have established holiness and righteousness on Earth, the Earth I am talking of is a new Earth.
42.         Thus, the Jerusalem we worshipped in is a New Jerusalem. It has been God’s ordained plan from Creation, Satan can never change it. He (God) is producing the original, He is God of reproduction.
43.         He told Moses in the wilderness saying, “Moses, do not pray for these people, stay away, let me finish them! I will make unto thee a new people altogether.”
44.         If you cannot worship God, God can take you away and replace you with another person, completely new to take your position. That is why Paul said, “Be careful, let no man take your crown”.
45.         Be careful; let no man take your position. Jesus Christ said that people will come from East and West, fresh, and take position in the Kingdom but you who are supposed to take the Kingdom you will not be there. Why? Because of your carelessness, your unbelief.    
46.         I am going further. Daniel 8:20-21 is the Grecian Empire—the whole books bearing witness that God is God. His programme is yes and amen. Now what of this fourth Kingdom? 
47.         Daniel 2 verse 40- 43, “And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
48.         And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
49.         And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.”  KJV.
50.         This last Kingdom is what the Bible is describing, and this last Kingdom is the fourth Kingdom.
51.         What is more, it is in the days of the last kingdom that Christ will come. It is in the days of the last kingdom also that the Church will be established and it will be in the Jerusalem and not in Rome, not in Spain, not in France. The Bible recorded that this kingdom also will be partly strong and partly weak and will be divided into ten pieces.
52.         History has it that a time came when Roman Empire emerged with the leadership of Emperor Caesar who conquered Greece. Greece conquered Persia, Persia conquered Babylon, but when Romans conquered Greece, Roman conquered the whole world during the time of Emperor Caesar.
53.         Caesar controlled the whole world including Jerusalem. Caesar was posting governors; Caesar posted Pilate, that was why when Pilate had the opportunity to set Jesus Christ free, the people said, “If you dare try it, we will report you to Caesar!”
54.         Caesar was controlling the world from Rome in the time of Jesus Christ. They came with money bearing Caesar’s head and they said, “Whom do we pay this tax to? Seeing that you are a king, do we pay to you or to Caesar?” He replied, “Go to Caesar.”
55.         Besides, history has it that when the Roman Empire appeared, it could not hold strong, for there was problem in Rome, their headquarters, the Roman Empire divided into ten separate kingdoms. Some of you will not understand what I am saying.
56.         In the history books, they divided into ten separate kingdoms, then you can see the Usthrodox, you see the fixigos and all of them into ten splinter groups. Read The History of Europe” by F. K. Boaz. They divided into ten splinter groups and could not hold again.
57.         Read Church histories you will see the history of Europe, how the Church started. Because the Bible said that it must be divided into ten kingdoms, it became weak because if a building is divided against itself it can never hold again. It is in the midst of this last kingdom that God will plant His Kingdom on Earth and when His starts, it is going to start in a very minor way, insignificant way, it will grow like a mustard seed and will swallow all other kingdoms.
58.         Let us see, the Bible is fulfilling in our eyes every day and yet we do not know.
59.         St. Luke 2:1-2,And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.).” KJV.  
60.         Look at instruction coming out from Rome through Emperor Augustus Caesar, “Everybody must be taxed.” Everybody, no exception. This was the period Jesus the Christ was born to establish the Kingdom of God on Earth.
61.         St. Luke 3:1, “Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene…” KJV.
62.         Have you noticed something there? In the reign of this man called Caesar; that was the same time Pontius Pilate was the governor of Jerusalem. Did you see it in your Bible? Jerusalem taking authority from Rome, Rome now controlling Jerusalem, Rome controlling the world, Rome taxing the world.
63.         This is the time the kingdom must be established. The Roman Empire is the fourth kingdom. During the last days of these kings, God must establish His Kingdom which is the Church according to Daniel 2:44. The Church must begin in Jerusalem during the last days in the days of the Roman Empire.
64.         These prophecies show how important the Church is to God that He prophesied it centuries ago. Was it not during the reign of Herod that Jesus Christ was born? Was it not in the reign of Pilate that Jesus Christ was born? Amen.




CHAPTER 6
GOD’S PLAN FOR HIS CHURCH
We continue. We are watching something, God purposed the Church from Creation, separated the people in the time of our fathers, gave them the Law, called them a Church in the wilderness,  prophesied in the Prophets’ period, showing  them the importance, the whole prophecy lining up, that this Church must be established at the last day.
2.            The Church was prepared in the days of Jesus Christ. Remember that  the days of Jesus Christ was during the Roman period. Jesus Christ was born when Rome was controlling the world. Jesus Christ was born during the fourth kingdom, which means that all the prophecies of Daniel came to pass as we can see in Luke 3:1.
3.             Let us see John the Baptist, what he said in Matthew 3:2,And saying, Repent ye: for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” KJV.
4.            John the Baptist came to prepare a way for Jesus Christ. What was he preaching? “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”
5.            We will know that Kingdom again; remember that we have named that Kingdom before. Now if Jesus Christ is the Kingdom Himself, we will see what He said. When Jesus came, He preached also that the same Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Is that true? Is that Bible?
6.            Jesus Christ preached that the Kingdom is at hand, He appeared in the last day, John the Baptist appeared also in the last day. However, Jesus Christ added something, for if He stopped there He repeated what John the Baptist said. He added something which let us to understand it the more.
7.            St. Mark 1:15,And saying, the time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” KJV.
8.            He said that the time is fulfilled. Which time? The time appointed for the Kingdom to appear on Earth is now fulfilled, and for that repentance for time is no more.  You better repent and come into the Kingdom or you stay away and perish.
9.            Remember that the Church was prepared in the days of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ instructed the Apostles to preach the same message.
10.         Matthew 10:7,And as ye go, preach, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” KJV.
11.         Did God instruct that? Jesus Christ instructed the Apostles saying, “When you go, preach that the Kingdom of God is at hand.” Which means that the time for the establishment of the Church is at hand because Jesus Christ is the end of the Laws and Prophets, He is the end. He brought all they said to an end, and He is coming to prepare His Father’s Kingdom here on Earth for the first time, having the shadow in the wilderness. Is somebody getting me?
12.         If you are not getting me be sincere, I have appealed to you many times to relax your mind, give me strict attention and Holy Ghost will help you.
13.         Watch the Church now, He promised to build this Church according to Matthew 16:18-19, “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on Earth shall be bound in Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heaven.” KJV.
14.         Who was given this power? Is it Peter or the Church? He said, “Peter, from the words of your mouth, upon the confession of your mouth, upon the Name that you have revealed which my Father in Heaven revealed to you, I will build my Church upon that Name.”
15.         This particular Church now has the key, that whatever they bind on Earth is bind in Heaven. Whatever they loose on Earth is loosed in Heaven. The Church is now given absolute power. The Church has the power that shakes the hour. He promised it but it is not yet built. It is a promise as at that time and it is about to be built.
16.         Remember where God started this thing, look at where the programme started, how many years? This is to show you the importance of the Church. You will now see why God sent Jesus, why Jesus died using his blood. See how God valued the Church, how God valued you. No matter what, He never played with it.
17.         You will see why God said that if any walk contrary out—because it is not a human organization but a Heavenly organization on Earth, but because people lack the revelation, they follow the way of Satan: “ Since God has gather these people, He will gather our own people.”
18.         That is why God calls His people into His Kingdom, but human beings call people into their own kingdom. That is why after preaching, they will give you address and everything; tell you where you will come. That is the people’s Church.
19.         Ephesians chapter 5 verse 25, “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the Church, and gave himself for it; KJV.
20.         Christ loved the Church from the foundation of the world. Christ died for the Church and not for everybody. Christ did not die for everybody. Christ died for the Church and the Church is the property of Christ.
21.         When you purchase any item that item belongs to you, whatever that will make a man to lose his blood, that must be a very important thing. You see why husbands do not play with their wives? Because they know how much they laboured to marry their wives and to sustain them in the family. That is why no husband will take it lightly with his wife when the woman will become stubborn. The man will beat the hell out of that woman.
22.         When a woman is stubborn and receives serious beating from the husband, the husband is not possessed, that woman deserves it. If that is the only lesson she will learn, teach her that lesson! The same way, God chastises us.
23.         The same love that made Christ to shed His blood, the same love a man should have for his wife, because from the beginning of the world, God had not relented His effort for one day: “Because my Father works, so I work.” Because Christ works, so all His people were working.
24.         Every effort of God from the foundation is to produce His children. What I am telling you is truth. His Kingdom must be here established, carrying His children.
25.         Acts of the Apostles 20 verse 28, “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the Church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. KJV.
26.         Ministers are you taking note? Did you see this portion? If somebody has laboured for several years, spending all his money and effort, ignoring the good things of life only to raise people unto Himself, placing them in His Kingdom called Church and then He appoints you to oversee them by giving them the food which He has given you to give them and you withhold it or blindly you leave it and go contrary. Something He purchased with His own blood, wait for His fiancé indignation. It is because that ministers lack the revelation that’s why they esteem worldly things more than the things of God.
27.         Some still think that God is playing with us in this most holy Faith. Do you see where you are missing the thing? If you can rehearse this message, know the importance of Church to God, every minister will sit up. After Christ, people still waited for the Kingdom, which Christ promised.
28.         Luke chapter 23 verse 51, “(The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the Kingdom of God.” KJV.
29.         Is it in your Bible that after Jesus Christ, He died and He resurrected and then ascended to Heaven yet this promised Kingdom is yet to be established. When will this Kingdom be established? When will this Church going to be established? That becomes a question.
30.         Yet He said that this time is the time, it is fulfilled. All the Prophets said. It must be a serious thing. Jesus Christ talked that the Kingdom will come with power before some of the living Apostles that time will never taste death.
31.         Jesus Christ said that this Kingdom must come while some of the Apostles will still be alive, that not all of them will die before then. Remember that this Kingdom is coming with power.
32.         Mark chapter 9 verse 1, “And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the Kingdom of God come with power . KJV.
33.         Is it so in your Bible? They were standing face-to-face with Christ, and He told them that of a truth, that some standing before me will not die until they will see this Kingdom coming with power. John the Baptist is he here now? Can we see John the revelator now? Is Peter around? Is Paul around? Where are they? When you read your Bible read to your understanding. You see where other Churches missed God? Without the Holy Ghost, nobody will understand the Bible. That is why God prepared us as vessels first, then he made us able to understand Him.
34.         What you are hearing is Upper Room Ministry. When God is speaking to us in plain language, not shouting gbam, gbam, gbam; it is no longer gbam, gbam, gbam. No, it is God settling you down and then giving you the chilled food, because unto you are given the spirit to understand the mystery of the Kingdom of God.  
35.         Do not be cut off from this Kingdom because of your carelessness. He told them to remain in Jerusalem till they receive this power which will come with the Holy Ghost. For this Kingdom will not come alone, it must not be a weak Kingdom; it must not come by mouth alone, it must come with power, by demonstrating the power of the Holy Ghost.
36.         The Holy Ghost being Christ, it will come with the resurrection power, the lame will walk, the deaf will hear, the dumb will speak, dead people will rise again like they did when Jesus Christ was alive as a man.
37.         When His Kingdom is established, it will be established with power because He is the Head of that Kingdom, He is controlling that Kingdom, He is commanding that Kingdom, He is leading that Kingdom.
38.         Remember the prophecy of Daniel and the prophecy of Isaiah, that the Church will be established in Jerusalem in the last days, in the days of the Roman kings.
39.         Luke 24 verse 47-49, “And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things.
40.         And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” KJV.  
41.         Tarry ye in Jerusalem, and then when this power comes, the first preaching concerning this Kingdom will now start from Jerusalem. Has it fulfilled the prophecy? Note, not in Rome, not in any other place, but tarry ye in Jerusalem until you be crammed with power for the Kingdom is coming with power. Then you will preach repentance of sin in His Name among all the nations, so that all the nations will come into Him and receive His blessings.
42.         The whole nations that will hear your message and believe, they will come into the Kingdom and become partakers of the blessings as promised Abraham; starting from Jerusalem.
43.         Acts chapter 1 verse 8, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the Earth. KJV.  
44.         Any time this power comes and they start this preaching from Jerusalem, all the prophecies said must have come to pass. Now people will now look at them and they will see that they are different from other people, people will now look at them, look at their religion, they can now differentiate it from Roman religion and the Jewish religion. It is going to be new, when others are weak, this one has power. When others are dormant, this one is going to other nations, and it will go until it will conquer the whole world.
45.         Christ has conquered the world. Everybody in the world believes that there is Christ, there is no country without Christianity but when it started, it started in a little way in Jerusalem.
46.         Christ has conquered the world; Satan is defeated because the Lord reigneth forever and ever, even in the hearts of all men. The Church is now presented, period. When Jesus Christ was alive, nobody was called a Christian, but when Jesus Christ died, people that lived the life of His doctrine, started practicing what He taught them, people then identified them as followers of Christ, and then called them Christians in Antioch, which is Christ-like.
47.         If ye then are Christ, if people will look at you and say that you are Christ then you are partakers of all the blessings of God which He promised Abraham by faith in the established Word which is the Word on the Throne, which is the Word of God, which is Christ in you the hope of glory.  
48.         Acts chapter 1 verse 4, “And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. KJV.
49.          Jesus Christ commanded them, “Do not ever leave Jerusalem, stay there until you receive the promise of the Father which I have told all of you, that the Kingdom is coming with power and it must be in Jerusalem, wait there.” Anyone that left that place, is disobedient and he will never be part of that Kingdom because they represent the foundation of the Kingdom.  
50.         The Church is built upon the foundation of the Apostles and the Prophets, Christ Himself being the Chief Corner Stone. Every denomination is built upon the foundation of the message of their ministers. Deeper Life Church is built upon the message of Kumuyi, End-time Church is built upon the message of Branham, and any denomination is upon the message of their founders.
51.         It requires only but one, the undefiled universal Church of Christ which is the Bride of Christ in all the ages to inherit the Kingdom. Note, undefiled, God promised to preserve it pure without spot, no blemish, it can never mix with any group, no mixture in all its practices, in doctrines, in converse, in all no mixture.
52.         Anywhere you meet with denomination and you stop, you have gone astray. When you plait your hair, you women here, be sure you do not plait like them. You leave your own like that, be very careful so that you do not keep it like them.  
53.         Acts 1 verse 12, “Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey. KJV.
54.         After seven years, the Apostles came back to Jerusalem from Mount Olive where they wait and said bye-bye to their king. They escorted Jesus Christ to Mount Olive and came back like bridesmaid. All of them walking without hope, but they tarried believing that one day that promised husband will come. They received a promise and they must wait.
55.         Acts 2 verse 4, “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. KJV. 
56.         We will not get it here alone. Let us go forward, verse 1-11, “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
57.         And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under Heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
58.         And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.” KJV.
59.         On the Pentecost day the promised power came down, God called witness all over the world including the African nations like Libya and Egypt, they were witnesses also, so Africa has no excuse.
60.         Now watch, from Jerusalem now the Word of God is preached in the last days.
61.         Verse 16 to 17, I want to establish something there. “But this is that which was spoken by the Prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: KJV.
62.         When the Kingdom was to be established in the last days, when will our people going to speak in the last days? When did these things happen? Has it fulfilled to the letter? Where did it start? I want you to see the sequence of the fulfillment of the Bible, so that you can conveniently hold the Bible and boldly say, “I am holding God’s plan for me.” God wants Me to inherit eternal life, I am holding it in my hand and no man will take it away.
63.         I pity any family without the Message of God and the Bible or the one holding the Holy Bible without revelation. God in His Word is doing great things around Me.
64.         Acts 2 verse 29-36, “Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher is with us unto this day.
65.         Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
66.         He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
67.         Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
68.         For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
69.         Until I make thy foes thy footstool. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.” KJV.  
70.         Have you seen the picture? Have they obeyed the Bible? The first new preaching is now proclaimed, the first public preaching in the Church, look at it and as we read verse 37 down.
71.         Verse 37, “Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
72.         Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
73.         For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
74.         Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
75.         And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
76.         And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
77.         And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.” KJV.
78.         Have you seen the Church now? Have you seen the Kingdom now? Before this time the Church was in the making and now it has been established in Jerusalem with power and all that were witnessed by all men. If there must be a Church today, it must have power. Any Church without power is human Church.
79.         Watch their practises, they continued steadfastly in the Apostles’ doctrines which means that the Apostles were laying out doctrines which they received from God Himself and they hand them over to the Church.
80.         All that gladly received it, not receiving it by compulsion, all that gladly received it, gladly they were baptized, gladly they were added to the Church. Not conditional Christians, well, will you do this for me? If I come, build a house for me, if you come God will take care of your problem, forget about them, this and that, that is conditional Christian. They gladly received it and the Church was established.
81.         This is the end of everything. The Church has been established at last, the Kingdom has been established at last, and not in weakness but in power, in demonstration of the spirit that when Peter preached it, many were condemned of sin, some were pricked in their hearts. The Prophet said, “Blessed is that preacher who after preaching, many hearts will prick them of their sins and they will take Christ.”
82.         Blessed is that preacher and not a sissified preacher. Who is a sissified preacher? It is a man that lives contrary to his teaching. That is a sissified preacher.
83.         Let me tell you, it is very easy to know when the anointing leaves a preacher. When anointing leaves a preacher, he will be speaking the truth with every sincere heart yet it will not be making impact on the people because it is an empty word, word without life.
84.         Note, we are progressing gradually. All this things came to pass about AD 33. Check history of the Church Age, if there is any history of the Church Ages in your shelves, check, you will notice that everything came to pass in AD 33.
85.         All references to the Church before Pentecost were references pointing to the future. Before Pentecost, the Church did not  come. Then it remained in the making, it remained in the preparatory stage, it was on the building plan that was in the making.
86.         However, on the Pentecost day, that building was established. God approved it with power following the Apostles doing the same work. If this Church went away, it was noticeable because they lost their power and they became ordinary organization, it cannot command the respect or honor, it could not shake the hour because it was a befallen Church.
87.         If this Church is going to be restored, the evidence that it is restored is that the same power that was in the first one will all come down in this one, THEN THE CHURCH WILL GO HOME. No mistake about it.
88.         If you are of Christ the life is okay. For the body is shaking off because the life is operating outside the Body. That is why for now the life is operating outside the body but God has started molding the body.  I want you to be among those that will be in the Body, I will also be a member. Amen.






CHAPTER 7
THE BEGINNING OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE CHURCH
Pentecost marks the beginning of the establishment of the Church. Acts 11 verses 15, “And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning.” KJV.
2.            Which time was the beginning? When was the Holy Ghost mentioned that it fell upon the Apostles? It was on Pentecost. For it was the beginning.
3.            Moreover, as Peter was ministering to a family, Holy Ghost fell upon them as it did unto them at the beginning. Which means that Holy Ghost starts the beginning of the Church.
4.            Holy Ghost was the power in the Church, that was the day the power of God was established in the Church for the Church has been established. The Church or the Kingdom of God was considered to be established.
5.            Acts 5 verse 11, “And great fear came upon all the Church, and upon as many as heard these things.” KJV.
6.            Why, because the power of God was in that Church.
7.            Chapter 8 verse 1, “And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the Church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. KJV.  
8.            The Church is being mentioned in two places here. Now every reference that God is going to make concerning the Body now refers to the Church which is the Kingdom of God, which Christ is ruling, which is still here on Earth. It is the same Kingdom that Christ is going to present unto His Father at His appearing. He is coming to take away the Church which you are a member of. You are a member of this Church if you live according to the principles of this Church.
9.            How many people are getting this message? It appeared that it is going deep. Deeper teachings make us strong. Why am I laying down these things, the Lord directed Me to do so because the Lord has taken this Church as Jerusalem. All that will follow must come to Jerusalem and then see the example.
10.         From Jerusalem now, Ephesians Church can be established as Eha-amufu. From Jerusalem now there may be other Churches in Abagana, in Ohuba, in Owerri, in Isiala-Ngwa, in Aba, some will behave like Corinthian Church, some will behave like Colossian Church, some will behave like the Church in Philippi, some will behave like the Church in Crete, some will be like the Church in Cyprus, some will conduct themselves like the Ephesians Church but all owe tribute to Jerusalem.
11.         Because in the beginning was Jerusalem. All that will see the light, the light is shining from Jerusalem, the land that was crawling in darkness is where the light is now shining. After their fourteen years there, from time to time, they will come back to Jerusalem to find whether they are building according to the plan.
12.         Wherever there is controversy it will be referred to the elders in Jerusalem and from Jerusalem, now the Church and the Holy Ghost can now give regulations that will guide other Churches. Because the Church started in Jerusalem, the law was given in Jerusalem, everything in Jerusalem. Thus, the elders can rely together and write regulations, then send them to other Churches if they must get favour from God.
13.         Anyone that walks contrary to the rules of Jerusalem, that person becomes Demas; he has become Alexander, Hymenaeus and Philetus. If there be any Pastor that walks contrary to the regulation which he receives from Jerusalem, which is the ordained way, where the sun is radiating, that Pastor becomes Pastor Diotrephes, the brethren will have nothing to do with him.
14.         Have you seen the picture? The land that was in darkness, where Satan deceived all but we are not deceived. Until when the revelation gets you, you will not have the impact. When you get the revelation then you will know your part. No mistake again because you have been separated from others, you are now in Jerusalem.
15.         When you are in Jerusalem, what else will take you to Jericho? It is because you do not know that you are in Jerusalem, that is why you can easily go to Jericho. God forbid. No matter the situation, remain in Jerusalem. Remember the message “Jerusalem to Jericho”.  
16.         We are going further. The Apostles identified the Church as the Kingdom and member are compelled into that Kingdom. They were delivered from the Kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God.
17.         Colossians 1 verse 13, “Who hath delivered us from the power of dArkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of his dear Son: KJV.
18.         You were delivered from the Kingdom of darkness, from the power of darkness into the Kingdom of His own dear Son which is the Church.
19.         You see where you are sitting! In the right hand of majesty. You want to see God and you want to see God’s right hand, look at the arm of God revealed which He has set forth to welcome a rebellious sinner and you are saying no, no, no. Look at God stretching forth His hand, extending His Kingdom from to Earth that rebellious people will come in, and all of them saying no, no, no, arguing and refusing to come.
20.         The Church is the power of God and Christ is in the right hand. The Church is called into the Kingdom, that is, the members, and as many as have been translated into this Kingdom, the Bible said that they are called into the Kingdom of God.
21.         First Thessalonians chapter 2 verse 12, “That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his Kingdom and glory.” KJV.   
22.         The Kingdom that he is calling, is it in Heaven? God has called you into His Kingdom and glory, therefore walk worthy of Him for it is grace, it is a privilege, what others has been longing for, educated men in this world longed for it, but God by His mercy called you into His own Kingdom and glory.
23.         If you are in God’s Kingdom, why are you afraid that Rapture will miss you? You should be rest assured. Can you see that whenever you are sitting here, that Christ is equally sitting with you?
24.         It requires spiritual eyes to see what I am saying. You can now boldly say that “I am sitting in Heavenly places.” Because He is the King of this Kingdom. He is always on the Throne and you are there also. On the last day also, you will judge the world with Him.
25.         In Revelation chapter 1 verse 6-9, we saw the children of God in the Kingdom.
26.         Revelation chapter 1 verse 6-9, “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
27.         Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
28.         I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ..” KJV.
29.         What put him in tribulation? The Word of God. Remember that he is also our brother; also a partaker in this Kingdom, all of us staying in the same Kingdom but one day while he was patiently waiting some arrested him and put him into the wilderness for the same gospel sake.
30.         Thus, if you are taken away tomorrow and put into prison, rejoice in tribulation, for it is the type of life in the Kingdom and also the manner of life in the Kingdom, it is the way of the Master and you can never avoid it.  
31.         Ephesians 2 verse 6, “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” KJV.
32.         He has raised us together, made us to sit in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Is it in Heaven? Look at it here. Look at Christ sitting together. What a wonderful privilege. If you do not have the revelation of the Church, you miss it.
33.         You will think that you are operating as individual; you are just a child of God, a member of the Kingdom. The Kingdom is made up of individuals and you are a member of that Body. You are either the hand or the foot.
34.         Revelation 5 verse 9-10, “And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the Earth.” KJV.
35.         Where do we reign? It is on Earth. Is it in your Bible? Which means Christ is reigning on Earth. You see that Christ is the power that is ruling the world! If you are reigning, the president of Nigeria ceases to exist. Nobody will remember Fidel Castro because I am reigning. If you are not reigning, you are not a child of God. Are you not a king? I am a King.
36.         Hebrews 1 verse 3, “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; KJV.
37.         You see your condition? Look at your condition. It requires no explanation. Look at verse 13, “But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? KJV.
38.         Is there any other Angel? Not even one except Christ. You see why all children of God are higher than angels? All the angels must be our messengers. That is why when Peter wanted to bow down before all of them, they said, “No, no, no. I am your messenger. We are children of God and we will judge the angels. Don’t you know that? Is it not Bible?
THE REVELATION OF THE CHURCH OF CHRIST
39.         1 Corinthians 15 verse 22-26, “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the Kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
40.         For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.” KJV.
41.         Ephesians 1 verse 19-23,And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
42.         Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
43.         And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all.” KJV.
44.         This Church must grow to perfection one day so that they will be able to catch away from the Earth, to meet her husband and then He weds her and that will be in the air.
45.         Ephesians 5 verse 25-26, “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the Church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, KJV. 2 Peter 1 verse 11, “For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. KJV.
46.         I have ministered an entrance into that Kingdom. You have received it all of you and now let us see that Church. The Church means ECCLESIA derived from a Greek word which means A CALLED OUT GROUP, a separated people from other people, a different people.
47.         In all their character, they are different. In everything they do they are different. They do not mix-up with anybody. They do not mix-up with the denomination. They do not partake of their evils, they do not partake of their traditions, they keep to their Heavenly traditions which are revealed in the Bible, they do not recognize any other.
48.         Anything contrary to it, they do not associate with it. That is the Church. Ecclesia, called out, separated from other people. A holy people, a peculiar nation, a royal priesthood because they must offer a holy sacrifice unto God.
49.         Why is holiness in the Bride of Christ? Because He that has called them is holy and they that are called must be holy, otherwise the two can never live together. For the two can never go together except they agree.  If a husband is holy, the wife must be holy too.
50.         Ephesians chapter 3 verse 9-11, “And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
51.         To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in Heavenly places might be known by the Church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: KJV.
52.         2 Timothy chapter 1 verse 9, “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, KJV.
53.         Now the Church means the Body of the saved people. If you are not saved, you are not a body of God. If you are still living in sin, your life not resembling the life of Christ, though you may be in our midst, you are not a member of the Faith, because the Church is made up of people and these people have escaped the corruption that is in this world through worldly lust.
54.         Thus, the Church means the body of saved people. All that must be saved must be members of the Body. Outside this Body which is the Kingdom of God, which is the Church of God, no flesh is saved. Because it is the Church that will go to Rapture.  
55.         In Ephesians chapter 1 verse 22-23, “And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the Church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. KJV.
56.         Ephesians 5 verse 23, “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the Church: and he is the saviour of the body. KJV.
57.         The Body is the body of saved people.
58.         Ephesians chapter 2 verse 11-12, “Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world.” KJV.
59.         Now you have hope, you have God in the world. I want you to know if whether you are a member of this Church, so that if you are not a member, you had better think about your life. I do not want to leave anybody in the dark. Any moment from now the journey that started thousands of years will end. Any moment this journey which started in the wilderness will come to an end.
60.         Ephesians 2 verse 14-15, “For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace.” KJV.  
61.         You see the people in the Body? God uniting the saved of all nations. God established the Church for the purpose of reviving a common union in which the saved ones of all the nations could partake together of Christ’s blessing. All that are saved in the whole world will come together and form that Church for that is the only umbrella where they will receive the whole blessing.
62.         For example now, if Nkpor people have a hall, when a brother filled with the Holy Ghost meets another brother filled with the Holy Ghost, there will be revival.
63.         Watch John the Baptist in the womb; watch Jesus Christ in the womb, all having the spirit of God. Their mothers were coming to see themselves as relations, but revival started in the womb, when this one greeted the other one, both of them were rejoicing because they were members of the same Kingdom. The Church is the only common forum where all of us will entertain God’s blessing.
64.         Ephesians 2 verse 16, “And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby.” KJV.
65.         To reconcile all. We are all reconciled in the body, no Greek, no Hausa, and no Yoruba.
66.         Ephesians 3 verse 4-6, “Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and Prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel. KJV.
67.         You see those that got the revelation! In the beginning the Apostles received the revelation, in the end the Apostles must receive the revelation.
68.         Somebody was telling Me that he was discussing with somebody outside and that man was saying that he is of the opinion, that the age of the Apostles is over, that when they died, that was all, and I told him that that was human opinion.
69.         Saying that the age that we are living is not the age of the Apostles is the same thing as saying that the age that we are living is not the age of miracle. That it is not even the age of Christ.
70.       On this note, I say remain in your sanctified estate, remain blessed in Him eternally. Amen.
