BUILDING PLAN: GOD’S PLAN TO ESTABLISH HIS CHURCH VOLUME 2

Preached on 29th October 1995 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD JOS By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE ROCK OF AGES” “Truth has no substitute” ©BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

Christ is a human being. He is in the midst of the Bride, He goes to Church. He worships Himself, but your physical eyes cannot catch Him.
Even in the beginning when there was no human being, He lifted up His hand and said, “I live forever!”  Believe it if you can...
-Son of Man
 (5th December, 2010)
All the prophecies we saw relating to the Church: how God will gather the whole nations in the Church for them to receive His spiritual blessings; how God planned it before the world began, promised it to our fathers, prophesied it in the time of the Jewish age, were all sealed by Christ. We can now see that the coming of a better Covenant which is Christ has now fulfilled all these promises. Christ sealed all of them.
The essence of this revelation is for you to see the importance of the Church; the importance God attached to the Church from the very beginning which He has not removed up till now so that you may know how to conduct yourselves in the House of God which is the Church of God and the Ground and Pillar of truth.

GOD’S PROVIDED WAY
Will there be evil in the city and the Lord has not done it? You see, what happened to End-time message was this: it was a very good move but with a dishonest intention. That is, it was a very noble move with bad motive and intention.
8.                  All that entered End-time Message, from what William Branham preached, they never planned for one day to continue from where he stopped. Rather they wanted to make money for themselves. What is more, any man that considers himself in gathering a group automatically imposes himself over that group as the Pope. He assumes that position of Pastor-ship because God used him to gather individuals, whether he has a divine calling or not.
9.                  Moreover, to crown up their wickedness, he will say that he believed William Branham, yet he assumes five-fold ministry to himself: He is the Pastor, the Evangelist, the Prophet, the Teacher and the Apostle. Then show me from the scripture who ever did that? Then he will cage the entire group. That is man-made.
10.              We all know their motive, because William Branham gave them a way, where their entrance could make money and fight for five-fold ministry; whether it is scripture or not, they fight for five-fold ministry.
11.              Some even went as far as establishing a lot of programmes in their Churches, building missionary fund, offering, tithe, helping the need, when they never helped even one person. The worst abomination was that any money collected in tithe box, they said that you cannot use it for any other thing. I say God have mercy.  
12.              In this Holy Ghost ministry, every believer is under strict control. No man is your teacher, rather your Teacher remains the Holy Spirit. That is why every believer must struggle to have that SEAL OF APPROVAL; you must make sure that you have that APPROVED TOKEN.
13.              You must wave your own, the same way, somebody must wave his own. If you do not know your Token, you are not in the move. No matter how you think, pray, perform sacrifice, miracles and so on, until you are certain that you are at home with the Holy Spirit, forget about catching away of the saints for you are not in the number.
14.              Holy Ghost baptism is not a feeling, it is not emotional, it is a reality. As real as you are sitting before Me now, as real as you are holding your Bible. It is not what you can read from any sermon book, or “believe and be baptized,” as if it was the message. William Branham said, “God-head Explained.”
15.              I do not owe apology to anybody, I do not know why. As far as God is concerned, as far as the Church is concerned, other ministers in the five-fold ministry are under the Apostleship.
16.              No matter the type of revelation they have, they are under the Apostle yet the Apostle is under the Pastor in the local Church. It is God’s way of doing things.
17.              William Branham remained the Prophet, established a tabernacle, and another person pastored William Branham. How many like the Apostle humbled themselves like that? You just build benches, use your money for seventeen years to raise a structure, run to places to gather people together without becoming a Pope; so that the whole world will know about you, and still come and humble yourself under a Pastor that believes your message, the man that you pastored. Do you think it is possible?  It requires Holy Ghost in a man.
18.              There are many things which we say that we believe which we do not believe. No matter how Holy Ghost filled you: “I feel that way! I feel that way! I am sending you by your ability to do it.” If you know that you cannot do it, do not ever preach it.
19.              Any sermon you know that you cannot obey, do not preach it. If you cannot obey, who then will obey? You have to be a leader. You move then others will follow. If you have not come to a point where you can say “follow me as I follow Christ,” simply sit down and be taught of God.
20.               Let me tell you, there is a reason why we want to die for this Gospel truth. There is a reason why we do our Earthly work, it is to earn our living. Why are we working? We are working just to fulfill scriptures. I am labouring with my hands to earn my living—to myself and my family—so that I will not be a burden to any Church.  
21.              Saint Paul worked with his hands, and he also taught Timothy to work with his hands. He taught Titus and the rest of them to the point that he said that if any Brother does not want to work, let him not eat. If there is any that does not want to obey this Gospel, mark him and push him out, then withdraw yourselves from him that he might be ashamed. Is it not Bible?
22.              However, somebody may come and say “I am in a full-time ministry.” Was Saint Paul not in a full-time ministry? Timothy, Titus, Andrew, Nathaniel, Bartholomew, Matthew, Luke, and all of them, were they not in full-time ministry.
23.              Jesus was on full-time ministry that is why He said, “I work because my Father works.” Because He is not a Leviticus priesthood. We do not belong to the Leviticus priesthood, our priesthood descended from Judah.
24.              This Faith is the only place where you come and preach with boldness. If you do not have accommodation, you live on the high way. I better be a watchman on the street and tell you the truth because he that pays the piper dictates the tune. That is why you see all the Pentecostals’ mess up. That is what killed End-time message.
25.              When you see evil in the Church, everybody will close his mouth. How can you reprimand somebody who will bring money to you? You will say, “Let us worship God anyhow.” God is not worshipped anyhow. Check your Bible, if you worship God anyhow, you die anyhow. For God has a provided way of worship.
26.              IF YOU WANT GOD TO ACCEPT YOUR SACRIFICE, YOU MUST COME TO THE PROVIDED WAY OR ELSE HE WILL REJECT IT. Why are they in a mess? They just use sermon books to gather people but their motive was very wrong. Everybody wants to make a name.
27.              I was telling brethren in Dadinkowa that their “big man” who was using them as prey, we all know him as John Ogwu. Today he is a traditional ruler. You better come and see him on the throne with big cap and title of chief—heathen all through. I keep on telling people that the end of everything will tell you who started that thing. We have seen the end, John Ogwu ended in becoming a traditional ruler, and now we can know who started it.
28.              Jesus was offered such a position and He said that “my Kingdom is not of this world.” In fact I do not know how to thank God. That God has chosen the poorest things of the world, despised things of the world, among people that are noble, kings and rulers, popular men in Nigeria, God never picked even one, but He has chosen the poorest, the unlearned, the despised to use them to confound the wise.
29.              I thank God that I am living in the days scriptures are fulfilling. It will take a child of God to recognize them. Looking at them you will call them fanatics, nobody can accord them the respect but before God they are greats. Looking at you in this most holy Faith and checking other Churches— man-made Churches and counterfeit Churches. You cannot call this Bridal Faith, this most holy Faith, a Church but I thank God for what He is doing.
30.              ANY MOMENT FROM NOW HE WILL WIND UP HIS PROGRAMMES. Thus, iron shapeneth iron. Amen.





GOD’S APPROVED WAY


2
GOD’S APPROVED WAY

When the Lord came down for the first time in our midst, we witnessed all you have been witnessing now. We did not know how to trace things back to the scriptures but we trusted in Him that in the fullness of time, He settled the Church with His own hand. No man assisted Him.
2.                  When He came down for the first time in our midst, we heard His audible Voice as we heard this day, confirmed in different ways.
3.                  He gave us a warning: He said, “I warn you ahead of time my people, you have called Me down, I have come down and decided to be with you. I have promised that I will be with you till the end, but be warned for it is not calling down that matters but it is following Me. Be very careful that you do not go to your right or to your left for I have ordained my own servant in your midst, filled Him with my Spirit, hear ye Him. You should be very careful because none of you have gone this way before including my servant who I have ordained, has never gone this way before but I will lead Him. Hear His voice.”
4.                  Do I have this message here? These are the people that are privileged to be here. The same visitation is what you have witnessed in your midst, and from now expect mighty things that will even frighten you. Expect great things that will even frighten you because He Himself will now do the purging.
5.                  If you like commit sin and come into the Faith. He has commanded you to sanctify yourselves before coming into His sanctuary because He is a Holy God. He has challenged you, challenge Him also for He is God. ANY MOMENT FROM NOW I WILL BE GOING HOME BUT YOU WILL REMAIN. TRY HIM!
6.                  Who is that messenger? Do you think it is Brother Odoemena? Then you miss the revelation. I want to help your little faith. The messenger is no other person but the Holy Ghost.
7.                  If you commit sin against Me, I will pardon you. If you commit sin against any preacher, he will pardon you. You commit sin against Christ, He will pardon you. However, from now, any word of blasphemy you utter against the Holy Ghost can never be forgiven in this world nor in the world to come.
8.                  Somebody may say, “Who is the Holy Ghost? How do I see the Holy Ghost?” The Church is the Holy Ghost, the Church is God, the Church is Christ and Christ is the Holy Ghost.
9.                  One word of blasphemy you utter against the Body, you uttered it against the Holy Spirit because He is the Overseer of the Church. The Bible said that He that descended is the same that ascended that you might fill all in God. The same that is in your midst is in Onitsha and all over the world, but not as a corporal body. When He was in Jerusalem, He was not in Judea.
10.              Thank God that our Pastor has accompanied me again. Somebody might be asking, “Why did the Pastor leave his Church? Is it because it is missionary or what?” Well, I do not know why God said that I should go with Him.
11.              However, God understands. Has he made the provision for the Church He is catering for? The Church at Onitsha has come of age. He is in Jos to encourage you, to exhort you and have a time with his co-Pastors. They discuss together, any moment from now the decision will change.
12.              If the Lord continues with the way He is dealing with us, by December we will be privilege to have the first bishop in our midst. This may sound strange to somebody. The Bride is to fulfill every word of God meant for her.
13.              If there were Bishops in the Churches of Acts of the Apostles, the Bride Church is the continuation of the Acts of the Apostles. There is no way Rapture can take place without all fixing themselves where they belong to, for that is the perfection of the Bride.
14.              The Church must have Elders, Deacons and Bishops. Any moment from now he will go back to his office and then the moment God ordains the Bishop down here, I will stop writing letters. All your letters, when they come I bundled it to him. He will be handling Church administration and occasionally he will appear in the pulpit if he has any message.
15.              How many knows that Judas was a Bishop? You can read it in Acts of the Apostles that he has fulfilled his Bishopric decision.
16.              Do not think that we have come to Jos to advertise ourselves. Do not ever think that way. What is more, do not think that we are beggars. No beggar came with me and there is no beggar in all the Churches. Rather I have believers, because in the Church of God it must be believers, I do not mean disciples.
17.              Be a believer and not a disciple for when the going becomes very tough, the disciple will say that “this is a hard saying, who can believe this?”  However, believers keep on believing. Disciples follow Him because of what they want to eat but believers are the partakers of the real suffering.
18.              Thus, I want to see whether I can handle one doctrine. Doctrine is the backbone of every Church. Now that I have seen gift manifesting gradually, I do not want to handle that topic which is “Seven steps of judging Prophecies, visions and dreams.” I do not want to hand it down yet.
19.              Let me just watch events. Once I can get you on the phone I will be monitoring what is going on. Thus, if emergency calls, I know how to send the tape by EMS.
20.              God has given us that as a means of communicating each other. Hence, with EMS I can reach many of you. Assuming you want to reach us, you try your phone and it cannot work, use speed mail.
21.              In the early Church, all the missionaries in the field were in direct communication with Jerusalem. Jerusalem has always been monitoring activities in the field. Anywhere they meet obstacles, they will go back to Jerusalem and there Elders will sit down with the Apostle and then agree with the Holy Spirit, sign the doctrine and send it out.
22.              It is in Jerusalem that all doctrines are corrected. All false doctrine, they are examined and corrected only in Jerusalem. No matter how God used Saint Paul, when he encountered problem, he contended with the people that propagated it, he could not succeed. No matter how great God used him, God dragged all of them back to Jerusalem.
23.              That was why even after sixteen years, he still went back to Jerusalem to verify. He said, “Lest I run in vain.” Because he knows that Jerusalem is always in direct contact with God.
24.               If he wandered and said after all I met God on my way to Damascus with miracle and signs following, he will fail. He will wander away. In Jerusalem that is where you will see pillars of the Church. They do not go out anyhow. Pillars of the Church are only found in Jerusalem.
25.              Saint Paul said, “When I went to Jerusalem, I met Peter, James and John who were leaders of the Church.” There is no way the Church can do without them because they had a special privilege which no other person has. They went places with Christ without altar.
26.            Whosoever cometh unto Me I will in no wise cast away. We do not place the cart before the horse. Jesus Christ said that as many as believed, baptize them, and after baptizing them, teach them to observe all things that I have commanded you.
27.            Thus, do not place the cart before the horse. Any child that is born of God must embrace the truth.
28.              Doctrines are what make the Church of Christ perfect. I have been trained by the Holy Spirit. I do not know how to give half-baked food. I do not know how to cut it short. You know teaching is always long and you do not expect it to go evangelical way, it goes in the Holy Ghost way.
29.              I am moved to give you this teaching because the day I handed down this doctrine, I fainted after it. Amen.






GOD'S BUILDING PLAN

GOD'S BUILDING PLAN
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 Sinai, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us.” KJV.
2.                  I would have loved to title this Message “The Church in the Wilderness” but for one thing. I am going to speak for the purpose of uniformity of doctrines in all the Churches because Saint Paul told the Corinthian Church that “what I teach in your midst is what I teach in all the Churches.”
3.                  In other words, what I am teaching now is not restricted to this Church at Jos alone. It is what I teach on this subject matter in all the Churches. Thus, I want to speak on “God’s Plan to Establishing His Church”. That is, the purpose of God establishing His Church on Earth, which means, what He had in mind for His Church.
4.                  Before I will speak on this establishment of the Church, I just want to touch it a little, scratch it a little so that you will get an insight of what I am going to say.
5.                  In other words, I am going to lay a background. Call this one my background message, and this background message is “BUILDING PLAN”.
6.                  We all know what building plan is. For example, look at a house, there is no way somebody can just come up and start building it. Forget about what is happening in the society today.
7.                  If a man wants to erect a structure, first of all he will draw the plan and from the plan, the builder will start constructing the house. When you look at the plan very well, find the position for each room, positions for the windows, positions for toilet and so on, even for corridors and passages, they are all in the plan.  The size of the blocks or bricks that will be used, they are all there in the plan. Everything pertaining to that building must be there.
8.                  If the man is a trained builder, he will first of all produce a miniature building which we can call “icon building,” or “icon view” of that building. That is, something that he can just make in a such a way that it will be a perfect picture of that building.
9.                  For example, if you get to Palace Hotel, you will see that gigantic building, you will also see a little structure that was built showing that big building. Looking at the building it is perfect. Thus, whatever you see in that little structure must be in the gigantic building, everything placed in its rightful position.  
10.              Now who did it? The architect. After drawing the building plan, built it in that small nature, handed it over to government as a guide so that whosoever that will be building that house, if he makes any mistake, government will notice it.
11.              The Prophet said that we should make this message so simple that even the unlearned will understand us. For that reason, I am trying to break it down very well so that everybody will benefit.  
12.              We continue. In that building plan which is the guide to the owner of the house, after laying the foundation, the builder starts building, one morning the owner of the house comes with the building plan, and while surveying the house, he comes to the place where he thought will be the bedroom and he saw toilet; he went to another place that is to be the kitchen, but he saw bedroom, what do you think will happen?
13.              He will mark it bad. He went to the place where the man should have used iron frame, and he saw wooden frame. Where the man should put two-in-one window, he saw single, what do you think will happen?  He will mark it bad.
14.              You are getting it! Because if you miss the background message, you have missed the entire message.
15.              We will see the perfect structure of that Church God is referring to, and you will then know that the Church never started with you, so that you do not come into this Church to mess up.
16.              The Church did not start with William Branham; the Church was there before William Branham came on Earth. William Branham was not in the wilderness but God was the Angel, He was in the wilderness. Furthermore, the Church did not start in Jos, the Church started in the wilderness. While they were coming out from Egypt, God assembled them there and started the Church.
17.              Many a time I hear people saying, “The Church that started today or last year;” you do not know what you are saying because you do not know what Church is. Please, hold that one firmly. Let us go into the building plan.
18.              For the owner of the house to accept that house, it must be constructed in line with the masterpiece. For the owner of the house to approve it, it must be constructed in accordance with the diagram, otherwise, the man will say, “My friend get away! I will not pay you!” He has the right even to drag that builder to court because he wasted his time.
19.              A wise master builder, the moment he notices a mistake in his structure from what is written in the plan, what will he do? No matter the height of the building, he will remove it and start afresh. Then in every structure, in every building, I want you to underline this basic fact: What carries every building is the foundation. There are places where two-storey building, three-storey building collapsed, why? The foundation was weak.
20.              The foundation of any house will determine the number of building you will add on top of it. If you make a foundation for a bungalow and then try to place three-storey building on top of it, the house will crumble. What is more, the fall will be a great fall.
21.              Thus, the foundation of every structure must be solid enough to carry any amount of building the owner wants to top on that foundation.
22.              Now, in building a house, I want you to understand one thing: foundation laying is the toughest part of the building. And while laying the foundation, the builder is very meticulous. That is, he is extra careful, he does not take any nonsense. If he gives you the rope to hold and asks you to hold it firmly, he will use his plumb rule to make sure that the thing is in line because he is now going to do pegging.
23.              He will do the pegging of the house, in other words, whatever that will be the nature of that house, he will construct it on the ground. Besides, if you see a master builder while placing the pegs, his eyes are red.
24.              All his co-workers and helpers, if they just mess up, he will not take easy with them, because this is what will dictate what the house will be.
25.              The foundation of any local Church will dictate what that Church will be. The Bible said that the Church of God is built upon the foundation of the Apostles and the Prophets, then the Word of God, Christ being the Chief Corner Stone.
26.              Hence, if you build with the word of the Pastor, you perish. You build with that of the Evangelist, no way. You build with that of the Teacher, no way. Because this is God’s perfect plan.
27.              What is more, when God starts to examine this Church, He will try to examine the foundation: firstly, who laid it? Secondly, with what was it laid? That is why the Bride ministry will rely on the Words of William Branham and the Holy Scriptures and then lay the foundation.
28.              Corinthians chapter 3 verse 8-14, “Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labor. For we are laborers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
29.              According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon…”  
30.              Somebody is laying the foundation; another person is building upon the foundation. However, if you are that man that is doing the building, be very careful, and know the type of material that you are going to use in the building. You must continue in the same original material that was used in laying the foundation.
31.              Pastors be very careful, Pastors be very careful.
32.              “…For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ…”
33.              That  was why when the Apostles finished the work, they placed a curse, that “if any man will come from Heaven or from Earth, call himself Prophet or anything and preach another Gospel, another doctrine other than this which we have handed down to you, let that person be accursed.”
34.              Why? Because the work was finished in their hands, then we become messengers of the same message. Any man that is coming today must preach what was preached by other Apostles and Prophets, otherwise, that person is writing a new Bible. Or else, he is either adding to the Word or subtracting from the Word.
35.              No matter how you say that God has been revealed, God will keep on revealing things but none of them can contradict the written Word of God. Whatsoever God will reveal to you today, tomorrow and in the future, must all agree with God’s Word. Otherwise, it is not God.
36.              “…Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest…
37.              In other words, the doctrines of your Church will reflect in the character of your members. Whatever you say you have, give them. If you want to give them charm, give them charm. If you want to give them witch craft, give them witch craft. Give them garri or rice, it will reflect in their health.
38.              The character, the attitude of the members of the Church will tell us what they are being fed with. Every man’s works must be tried because fire will try all of them.
39.              What is fire? Baptism of fire means persecution. Persecution will try you. If you do it with all these charms and witches, when persecution comes, your work will be destroyed.
40.              “…for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.” KJV.
41.              If your own overcomes, you will receive a reward. However, if your job does not overcome, any reward? You will be rewarded in Hellfire, because I do not think that you will be happy seeing your members going to Hellfire and then you will be rejoicing in Heaven. I do not think so.
42.              The Master Builder has laid the foundation and He is warning us that we must know the material we must use in continuing the building.
43.              Don’t you consider it to be arrant stupidity for the builder who saw a building that is in D.P.C level, the owner or somebody started it with very good background with blocks and cement, and one man foolishly comes one day and starts using bricks on top of the block? Is it not stupidity?
44.              If he is wise, he will look at the plan and then continue with the blocks. For if the man wanted to use bricks, he would have started with bricks. He saw bricks before he made his selection to use blocks.
45.              Hebrews chapter 8 verse 5-6, “Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle…”
46.              Moses was admonished of God when Moses was about to make a tabernacle in the wilderness.
47.              “… for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern showed to thee in the mount.” KJV.
48.              What? So, God knows how to draw building plan. He warned Moses, “Be very careful for you must build my tabernacle according to the pattern I presented to you in the mountain, in the wilderness.”
49.              For God to accept that tabernacle and His glory will come down there, Moses must build according to the revealed pattern. For God to approve any gathering on Earth as Church, that Church must be in accordance with the approved pattern, the foundation of that Church must not be shaken.
50.              It must be a solid foundation of truth because the Church of God is the only ground and pillar of truth. In other words, the foundation of the Church of God is not shaken.
51.              Remember it has a SEAL OF APPROVAL that God knows those that belong to Him. In the house of God like this most holy Faith, anybody can just come in. We have ornaments of wood, of silver and gold. Some to honor and some to dishonor.
52.               However, whosoever purges himself, him, God will honor, him, God will use. Note it, we are going somewhere.
53.              Verse 6, “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. KJV.
54.              Hence, we see that Moses has received a pattern, and when he used the pattern received in the wilderness, God from Heaven came down and approved it. The glory of God was always present in that tabernacle because he never made any mistake.  
55.              Exodus chapter 25 verse 40, “And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was showed thee in the mount.” KJV.
56.               You see the commandment? “Moses be careful that you make that tabernacle after the pattern that I showed you on the mountain.”
57.              Hebrews 9 verse 1-11, “Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.
58.              And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the holiest of all; Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;
59.              And over it the cherubim of glory shadowing the mercy seat; of which we cannot now speak particularly…”
60.              People that know how to reveal, let them reveal this one. I say, End-time ministry preachers, let them preach this one! Why didn’t William Branham reveal this one? He could have nailed on this one.
61.              I am coming closer. I will teach you a lot of things that will help somebody.
62.              “…Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God.” KJV.
63.              Hebrews chapter 9 verse 7-8, “But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:
64.              The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing…”
65.              Did anybody get something in this scripture? As long as the first tabernacle is still standing, it was still existing, there is no way the Holy Ghost can pave anyway. For the Holy Ghost to pave the way for us, the old tabernacle must be pulled down.
66.              There is no way you can carry End-time message into this most holy ministry. You must demolish one. The Law must die for Grace to come out. Grace and the Law cannot operate at the same time. One must give way to the other.
67.              The old covenant must give way for the New Testament that is established on latter promises. Just follow your Bible.
68.               “Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;
69.              Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation…”
70.              We have two ages: One, THE REFORMATION AGE; two, THE RESTORATION AGE.
71.              Reformer must come before the Restorer. Reformer must appear first.
72.              What we witnessed in the days of Martin Luther and Wesley were mere reforms. They were all reformers, they were not restorers. But in the end, God promised to restore all things, that was why He gave us the angel of Malachi 4, to come and restore us back to the Word.  
73.               Reformers came when there was Dark Age. The Bible was completely decreed out for Rome was controlling the whole world, and they massacred Christians that were carrying Bible. The world witnessed dark ages.
74.              That is why the Lord warned us in second Corinthians 6:1, “Have not the grace of Christ in vain.” The only place where there is equality is in the household of God. If you go to other denominations, you will see what is going on there: “Full Gospel Businessmen Fellowship” and I call it recreation club because they just go there to exchange complimentary cards, business cards and telephone numbers, for them to show up their dignitary cars like Limousine and so on.
75.              If you go to Deeper Life Church, you will see the “international friendship league” in the Church. In Grace of God Mission, it is “VIP International,” “very important personality International,” “special class of men and women.” What is more, you do not come nearer.
76.              If they see any man with Mercedes car, they will welcome him and keep him there. At the end of service, they serve him with bottle water and cake.
77.              In other words, caking in the unbelief. You know Satan is very tricky. You see why we must be beheaded; we must pay the price for the truth.
78.              Truth killed Abel in the Garden of Eden. From the beginning no man ever spoke the truth and get away with it. Truth killed all the Prophets yet truth resurrected. Cain killed the truth, but Truth reechoed from Heaven. You cannot suppress the truth. Bury the truth, three days it will resurrect.
79.              Do not allow Satan to cheat you by imputing sin on you. If you are in this most holy Faith, and you are committing sin, you are a deceived man in God’s house. You allowed Satan to deceive you when you are in the household of the King of kings. God forbid. Amen.

YOU ARE CHRISTS
If you believe in Christ, then are you Abraham’s seed. It means all that God purposed for Abraham now belongs to you. You are Christs. Can Christ perish? Can Christ go to Hell? Brethren, I should rejoice.
2.                  Have you not been baptized into His word? Have you not put on Christ?  Have you not depended on the goodness of life? Have you not forgotten the old way? Why then will you come and ask Me, “Brother, I do not know whether I am filled with the Holy Ghost?”
3.                  Don’t you know the way you talk? Don’t you know the way you behave? Don’t you know yourself? Don’t you know when Christ is controlling you and when He is not controlling you? Don’t you know when you are obeying the Word and when you are not obeying it? Obeying the Word is holiness.
4.                  The life of Christ in a man is Holy Ghost. It is not when you will come and make noise, because Satan does more than that. Not coming to ask, “Brother, I do not know whether I am filled with the Holy Ghost?” For you are all filled with the Holy Ghost.
5.                  Saint Paul was talking to the Romans, he said, “The moment you are obeying our Gospel, that time you are filled with the Holy Spirit.”
6.                  In Saint John chapter 6 verse 63, the Bible said that “the words that I speak unto you they are spirit and they are life”. You are cleansed by the word which I have spoken unto you. What else are you regretting? There is no man, there is no woman.
7.                  In End-time message, you will see men saying that in the washing of foot, Sisters should wash Sisters while men should wash men. Because in their midst they have men and women, but in the Church of God, no man, no woman. Hence, there is no difference between Sister’s foot and Brother’s foot. When brother is washing, he will wash all.  
8.                  It is amazing grace that we marry our Sisters. That is why if you are married to a child of God, we must talk to you otherwise no issue, otherwise no child will come if really you are sincere. However, if lust is controlling you, you will begin to engage Sisters in the Church, even engage heathens. Lust!
9.                  I call it youthful lust and the Bible said that you should flee from youthful lust which will lead you to engagement. If you want to marry, go and marry. If you do not want to marry, sit quietly. If you marry, you are not a believer, and if you do not marry you are not a believer for marriage does not make you a believer and marriage also does not make you an unbeliever.
10.              In Heaven, there is no husband and wife. Don’t you know that in the resurrection you will put on angelic bodies?  Who is the wife of angel Gabriel? I will show you a mystery.
11.              Let them that are married live as if they are not married. Am I not here with you? One of these days some of you will see my wife, some have seen her already, some have seen my younger ones. Brother Martins, you have seen her, you have known my children.
12.               However, I am in Jos, they cannot hinder Me from coming to Jos, instead they will tell me, “Daddy, go in peace! May God bless you!” and I will say, “Amen. Stay till I come back. However, if I do not come back, do not panic for we will meet on that day;” and they will say Amen, and then I left.
13.              Nevertheless, it is not so to some people. Somebody may be in the pulpit, a little while you see him, he will rush into the house, commit fornication with his wife and then come back to the pulpit. Rubbish! You can commit fornication with your wife and yet it’s illegal because sexual abuse is fornication.
14.              You that is married, wherever I go, I speak my last truth. Marital sex is even carnal. If you indulge in too much marital sex you contact the spirit because you can hardly pray, you can hardly read your Bible and the spirit will be troubling you, man and woman alike. Every time you will be desiring your wife, desiring your husband, no.
15.              The Bible said that you should be filled with the spirit. For you should never give any room to the flesh.  
16.              We are heirs according to the Promise. That is, co-partakers of the Promise of God, because we are Christs, we are Abraham’s descendants. For God made the covenant with our father, Abraham. That is why the Bible said that the Law that was given four thousand years ago cannot annul, cannot cancel the Covenant that was made from the foundation of the world. Common Laws that were given to Moses yesteryears, cannot cancel it.
17.              I am covenanted with Christ, that is my joy. Who commits sin? A child of God. Somebody said, “Brother, what are you talking?” The Bible said a child of God does not commit sin and you said it.
18.              Who commits sin? A child of God. Can Devil commit sin? He won’t. Can a sinner commit sin?  No. Who can be dirty? A washer man. Who can be spotted? A washer man. Mechanic uniform can never be dirty. If you rub grease on it, it cannot be detected because it is already dirty.
19.              Thus, if a little drop of oil drops on his shirt, the man will say, “Oh!” If you see him, you ask him, “Who spotted you?” He will say, “It is that child we met,” because neatness has become his nature. Then he will look for a bleaching agent. Bleaching agent will be applied, you know the bleaching agent, and it will wash it like snow.
20.              No man can input sin on God’s own elect as far as the blood is still flowing, always remember the blood. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. That is, the blood of a New Covenant which He shed for you, for the remission of sin.
21.              I FEEL LIKE FLYING AWAY! DON’T MIND THIS SINFUL WORLD. BRETHREN, TO WORSHIP GOD IS VERY SWEET, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU WORSHIP HIM BY REVELATION. That is why if you know who you are and where you are, you will not shake, you will not move about to and fro because you are deeply rooted, grounded and settled. Because this Faith is the pillar and ground of truth.  
22.              The Church was prophesied during the Jewish Age or the age of the Prophets to preserve Israel for the purpose of establishing them as His own nation. God separated them from the people by giving them a Law which prohibits them from mixing with other natives, people or nations in the whole world.
GOD’S ETERNAL PURPOSE FOR HIS CHURCH
23.              Deuteronomy chapter 5, verse 1 through 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.
24.              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.
25.              Acts 10:28  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 showed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.” KJV.
26.              Have you seen that it was a strict Law given to them, that they should never, never mix with any other nations! However, by divine commission God made a way, who said, “Peter, we are going further.” The Prophet predicted that one day, God will establish a better covenant. The Prophet prophesied that this Law must be taken away one day and God will substitute with a better covenant.” It was a prophecy.  
27.              Jeremiah 31:31-34“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
28.              Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them ….”
29.              This one is a different one altogether, not according to the old one. Remember, the Bible said, “The day cometh, a time will come,” future okay.
30.              …by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they broke…” 
31.              They broke the covenant, they could not keep it. Although it was their husbandman today.
32.              although I was a husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts…”
33.              Note, after those days, I will now put my law in their inward parts, I will no longer write on table or stone.   
34.              “…and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
35.              And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” KJV.  
36.              It won’t be something that will be written on the blackboard. It will be written on the table of your hearts. Nobody will be going from house to house informing you, worshipping of God will be a revelation to all, A to Z and on that note I will forget their sin, because by revelation, they worship Him in an acceptable way.
37.              He promised them that He will change that Law and promised also a new nation, which through all nations will unite to serve God. God promised that He will not only change that Covenant alone, immediately He change that covenant, He will establish a new Kingdom, a new nation where men of the whole world will unite and worship God. In other words, there will be no other meeting point for people to worship God except in that place.
38.              Let us see that virtue. Remember we are unfolding God’s eternal purpose, which He hid in Himself from the beginning of the world and to be revealed to His Church, which has been a history.
39.              Satan will no longer cheat us again. Enough is enough!
40.              Psalms 22:27-31, “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…”
41.              The Kingdom is the Lord’s. The Kingdom belongs to God and He will be the Governor, King over His Domain, His kingdom and it belongs to the Lord.
42.              “…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…”
43.              None can keep alive his own soul outside the Kingdom, which means, outside that Kingdom, no hope, no salvation.
44.              “…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.
45.              Psalms 10: 17, “LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear.” KJV.
46.              God will cause our ears to hear, He knows our desires. All these prophecies were all fulfilled in Christ and His Church. He established the new Covenant according to the Prophets as we can see in Hebrews 8:6-13, a new covenant is established to fulfill the prophecies of Jeremiah 31:31-34.
47.              Hebrews 8:6-13, “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second….”
48.              If the first covenant was without fault, there will not be any need for the second one. Who is finding fault with it? “Have He told the people about it?” Yes! Through the mouth of their Prophet Jeremiah, He told them that a day cometh when He will change it and now He is changing it in my day, He is fulfilling all of them in Christ.
49.              “…For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
50.              Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
51.              For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
52.              For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.”  KJV.
53.              Yes, it is superior to theirs, superior to the Levitical priesthood. This one is that He is doing works superior to the Levitical priesthood. In other words, He is ordained in the order of Melchizedek, not on the order of Herod.
54.              They did not keep their part in that agreement so I have to cancel it…
55.              Keeping God’s covenant means obeying it. At Dadinkuwa, Holy Ghost told us that all promises of God are conditional: when you keep your own part, God will keep His own part also. If you did not keep your own, God will cancel it.
56.              “…But this is the new agreement I will make with you saith the Lord, I will be merciful to them in their wrong doings and I will remember their sins no more.
57.              God speaks of these new promises or these new agreements, has taken the place of the old one, for the old one is out of date and has been put aside…”
58.              For it has been put aside forever. Who is bringing something God put away? Who is that man, is he not a cursed man? God put something away forever, that man went out and brought it back again, that man is the greatest enemy of God. Am I the writer of the Bible?
59.              After telling a man my faith on tithe, he said, “My friend, you are deceived.” I said thank you sir. If believing God deceives me, let me be deceived even more.
60.              My daily life bears eloquent witness, naked witness that I am not deceived. Why convert me? What makes a sinner a saint? If it is Devil, know that the Devil has repented long ago. Know that the Devil is in Heaven already, but the Devil cannot repent. Whatever that can make a sinner a saint must be Christ, for He is the doctrine of life.  
61.              The prophecies were fulfilling in Christ. Like I told you. And His Church needs to establish the new covenant as we have seen it in Hebrews 8:6 through 13; and He came reigning over His Kingdom, the Church. When He established that new Kingdom, He started reigning in His Kingdom also which is the Church.  
62.              I told you that kingdom means king over his domain. You cannot establish a kingdom and give it to another person. He is the governor of that kingdom.
63.              Act of the Apostle 2:30-36, “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;
64.              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.
65.              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,
66.              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.
67.              Note, both Lord and Christ.
68.              Ephesians 1:19-23,  “And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
69.              Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 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:
70.              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.
71.               Are you following the Bible? Even in the world to come, no other Name except His Name. He is the head of His Body (the Church) that He might fill all His power.
72.              First Corinthians 15:23-26,But every man in his own order: Christ the first fruits; 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….
73.              Have you seen what the Bible is saying? When He should have delivered the Kingdom to God. Which Kingdom? The Church. The Church of God will bear His Name as the head, it will be regarded as a Kingdom of God. Start from the beginning.
74.               Christ the first fruits; afterward they that are Christ's at His coming…”
75.               They that are Christ are of the resurrection of the saints, ye are Christ, ye belong to Abraham.
76.              Then cometh the end when He shall have delivered up the kingdom to g…”
77.              Before that time, He shall have delivered His Church (His kingdom) to His Father where you are members.
78.              Even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. Amen .”
79.              I hope you are getting the message? The Church is often described in the Holy Bible as a Kingdom.
80.              St. Matthew 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.
81.              It is a mystery. It is given to you, followers of Christ to know the mystery of the Kingdom of Heaven but to the world it is not so.
82.              Verse 18-19, “Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not ….”
83.              When anyone heareth the word of the kingdom and understandeth it not, the words of the Church, the preaching of the Gospel, that person is cheated. Brethren, without the Church there is no preaching of the Gospel.
84.              The Kingdom has its own language, it has its own ways. Any man that heareth the words of the kingdom and understandeth it not, that person is cheated.
85.              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.
86.              Because he did not know where he is, he did not know what was committed into his hand, then the enemy cheated him and took it away. The fight that the devil is fighting is to prevent you from entering the kingdom, and if he will succeed in taking away the Gospel which is committed into your hand, he has killed you. Because it is this Gospel that will usher you into that kingdom. Amen.








THE CHURCH IS ESTABLISHED IN JERUSALEM


5
THE CHURCH IS ESTABLISHED IN JERUSALEM
Matthew 16 verse 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….
2.                  Upon this Church I will build my Church. I will speak on this very one in this Message.
3.                  “… 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.
4.                  The entrance has been made. The Church has the final answer to every matter on Earth. Any sin that the Church forgives is forgiven forever. Anything they bound is bound forever. That is the authority of that my God: “Upon the revelation of your word, Peter, which no man giveth you but my Father which is in Heaven, upon the profession of your mouth I will establish my Church.” Thus, Peter was not the Rock.
5.                  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.” KJV.
6.                  That God has delivered us from the power of darkness and has ushered us into the Kingdom of His dear Son, and you are already in the kingdom of His dear son. You will see why those that were praying, “thy kingdom come,” when it fulfilled, they closed their mouth and they could not pray anymore.
7.                  It will be arrant nonsense for any believer to come and say, “God, thy Kingdom come.” Let me tell you, any scripture that fulfills or passes away goes back to God for His Word can never returned to Him void.
8.                  Are you expecting God to come and die? That prophecy has fulfilled. Are you expecting Christ to resurrect from dead again? It is fulfilled. Is it taken away from the Bible? No. Any scripture that fulfills goes back to God. The Bible is not static, it is a moving book. That is why you need to believe the message of your day.  Are you expecting another Pharaoh and Moses? Halleluiah.
9.                  You must fulfill the scriptures that are meant for you. All the scriptures that are meant for the Bride, the Bride must fulfill all. God has delivered all of us from the kingdom of darkness and He has ushered us into the Kingdom of His dear Son; and being our Father you will see why you have the boldness to call Him Abba Father.
10.              I told you that you will not perish. The only person that will perish will be the son of perdition that the scripture might be fulfilled. Judas died but his spirit is still alive. Herod died but his spirit is still alive. Jezebel died but her spirit is alive, don’t you know that?
11.              The first woman that ever put on make-up is Jezebel. She died but has make-up died? Number one covetous man is Judas and he died. Covetousness, has it died?
12.              It only died in the Bride because we are dying to sin, we are aligned to righteousness. That is why if there be any covetous man or woman in your midst, the Bible said, “Throw him away because covetousness is idolatry.”
13.              First commandment is “Thou shall love the Lord your God. Thou shall not make any graven image or bow down to any other god for He is a jealous God. God hates idolatry. A covetous man is never, never satisfied with money.
14.              Give him any gift he will regret it saying, “How I wish that Brother gave me money instead of this thing. After all I have it.” That is a covetous person.
15.              Immediately Judas saw that alabaster oil could cost money, Judas remembered the beggars on the streets, he never meant it, what he wanted was the purse. All along he has been selling, how many did he give a kobo. That is why the Bible decided to record it.
16.              Do not mind the man, he cannot fool the Bride. We are progressing. Remember that it is not my revelation; it is the revelation from God, the Alfa and the Omega.
17.              Revelation chapter 1 verse 6 and verse 9: “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. KJV.
18.              Verse 9, “I John, who also I 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.  
19.              The Church will be established during the last days in Jerusalem. All the Prophets of God predicted the place where this Church will be established first. Isaiah said that it must be in Jerusalem. Isaiah chapter 2, It must be established during the last days in Jerusalem. Underline that place there.
20.              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.”
21.              We know that Jerusalem is a city situated on the seven hills and the mountain of the house of the Lord will be located there where all nations will come and worship God.
22.              The Ethiopian Eunuch, where was he going to? He was going to Jerusalem. The Bible recorded that in the day of Pentecost that people came from all over the world and gathered in Jerusalem because it is the place where the house of God is. Moreover, according to the word of the Prophets, they said that it shall be established on the last days. Now you see the Church in the last days.
23.              “…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.
24.              The word will go forth from Jerusalem. Is it in Ethiopia? It must be in Jerusalem. The whole world will go there and the whole world went there and from there the word went forth. The child of God is often described it as the Lord’s house.
25.              1ST Timothy chapter 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.”
26.              Is it clear now? That thou knowest how you should conduct yourself in the house of God which is the Church of the living God. This is the house of God that will be established in the last days on the hills in Jerusalem.
27.              “…The pillar and ground of truth”. KJV.
28.              Which means outside the Church no more truth. Christ is the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh unto the Father except by Him and in Him dwelleth the fullness of the God head boldly.
29.              Hebrews chapter 3 verse 6, “But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we…”
30.              Can a man destroy his own house? You build and destroy, is it possible? If we are the house of Christ and Christ is over us, well, I will not perish, and she will not perish.
31.              If we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. KJV.
32.              Note, if you hold it and rejoice in it firmly till the end. But if you drop it by the way side because of persecution or what people are saying, you perish. You must hold it steadfastly till the end. Amen.





THE TIME THE CHURCH WAS ESTABLISHED


6
THE TIME THE CHURCH WAS ESTABLISHED
God Himself specifically told us the time of the establishment of His Church. From Almighty God, He told us the time when we should expect this Church to be established.
2.                  Daniel is a Prophet that saw the end and the beginning of Gentile dispensation.
3.                  Daniel 2 verse 1-45, “And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.
4.                  Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams.  So they came and stood before the king.
5.                  And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.  Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live forever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation.
6.                  The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill. 
7.                  But if ye shew the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.  They answered again and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation of it.
8.                  The king answered and said, I know of certainty that ye would gain the time, because ye see the thing is gone from me. But if ye will not make known unto me the dream, there is but one decree for you: for ye have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, till the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that ye can shew me the interpretation thereof.
9.                  The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the Earth that can shew the king's matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.
10.              And it is a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none other that can shew it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh. For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.
11.              And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain. Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon:
12.              He answered and said to Arioch the king's captain, Why is the decree so hasty from the king?  Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel. Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation. Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:
13.              That they would desire mercies of the God of Heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision.  Then Daniel blessed the God of Heaven.
14.              Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
15.              He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king's matter.
16.              Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the king had ordained to destroy the wise men of Babylon: he went and said thus unto him; Destroy not the wise men of Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto the king the interpretation.
17.              Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste and said thus unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known unto the king the interpretation. The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof? 
18.              Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;
19.              But there is a God in Heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days.  Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;  As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.
20.              But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.
21.              Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image.  This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
22.              This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
23.              Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole Earth. 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.
24.              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.  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.
25.              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.
26.              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.
27.              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.
28.              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 for ever.
29.              Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake 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.
30.              Now inside this passage you will notice the following illustrations: number one, you will notice the image and that image is recorded in Daniel 2 verse 36-40, you will notice world kingdoms.
31.              Daniel 2 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.
32.              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.  Thou art this head of gold.
33.              And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the Earth. 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.
34.              I will never destroy any human being; rather I will lead you to eternity. Now watch, four world kingdoms are mentioned in this scripture. They were very clearly written in your Bible.
35.              In the last days or in the days of the fourth kingdom, note that fourth kingdom which is the last. The fourth kingdom is the last kingdom; God was to establish His kingdom or the Church.
36.               Verse 44, And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed…”
37.              That is in the days of the last kingdom. In the days of that last empire which is the fourth kingdom; we do not know the name yet, we will know the name as we continue.
38.              In the days of that last kingdom, God would set forth His Kingdom on Earth which shall never be destroyed. “God’s Plan to Establish His Church.”
39.              Daniel 2:44, “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.
40.              Have you seen what God is saying concerning that kingdom which is about to set off? In the days of the last empire, in the days of the last world kingdom. Daniel identified the first three kingdoms namely; “Gold, which is the Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon.”
41.              Daniel chapter 2 verse 36-38, “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.
42.              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.  Thou art this head of gold.” KJV.
43.              That is gold, the head of gold, who is that person? Nebuchadnezzar. On Earth, from history we know that Nebuchadnezzar ruled the whole world. That was the man that built the hanging garden of Babylon. During his reign, the people of God faced a great opposition. Daniel suffered in his hands. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego suffered in his hand and God dealt with him at last.
44.              What I am telling you is not a story, it is a reality. History bears witness that a kingdom called Babylon ruled the whole world under king Nebuchadnezzar. Who is doubting it? History has everything. Bible can never tell lies.
45.              We have identified the second kingdom.
46.              Daniel 1 verse 1, “In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.” KJV.
47.              That is king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. He besieged Jerusalem and conquered the whole world. We had great men that came and conquered the world and we will see them from Bible and then confirmed by history. If you want to know more about the history of Europe, read the book by F. K. Boaz. Get his book on the history of Europe, then balance all these events for you to see and know the root.
48.              Number two is the second kingdom, let us look at it. Daniel 2 verse 39, “And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the Earth.” KJV.
49.              Now watch this silver, it is named in Daniel 5 verse 25-31. Let us identify who has this head of silver: “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.
50.              TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians….”
51.              The second kingdom is of silver, the Medes and Persians Empire. Is it clearly written in your Bible? We have traced the two empires. We know that after Nebuchadnezzar cometh Persian. Persian was under Zirus, that was the man that was ruling that time for he controlled the whole world and he made an irrevocable decree. He was the man that gave the order that the people of God should go and rebuild Jerusalem and stand under it.
52.              The third kingdom is of brass. Daniel 2 verse 32 and verse 39 mentioned it. Now let us identify it clearly.
53.              Daniel 8 verse 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 Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king. KJV.
54.              Watch the third kingdom; Brass, note, it was identified in Daniel 2 verse 32 and verse 39. Is it like that in your Bible?
55.              Now, it is named in Daniel 8 verse 12-21 as Grecian Empire. Have we identified how many kingdoms there? Three. Namely: the Kingdom of Babylon which is Nebuchadnezzar, the Medes and Persians kingdom, and the Grecian kingdom.
56.              History bears it that these three kingdoms emerged on Earth. History bears it relevantly that Greece controlled the whole world. Alexander the Great was controlling then, and after him cometh other people that wanted to control the world namely, Napoleon but he could not succeed. Hitler could not succeed.
57.              Hitler was a great king that wanted to suppress the whole world. Then after Hitler cometh another man Ayatollah Khamenei but he could not succeed. Another man tried it, which is Saddam Hussein but he could not succeed.
58.              During the battle between Iran and Iraq, his aim and purpose was to rule the whole world, his predecessor was Nebuchadnezzar. He can never succeed because already there has been a kingdom that is standing and that will stand forever.
59.              Now, it remains the fourth one and in the reign of the fourth kingdom, will God establish His Church. The Church will be established during the reign of the fourth kingdom. That is what the Bible said. Hence, for us to know when the Church has been established we will first of all find out the fourth kingdom. If the Church is not established within that kingdom, know that the Bible is not true.
60.              Any Church that has existed before is not that one that God promised. The one that God promised must fulfill to the letter; it must be in the days of the reign of the fourth kingdom.
61.              Brethren, this teaching is not easy. It is for the Bride alone because it is the mystery that is hidden in the ages which is only revealed to the Bride. That is why the Bible said that we should rejoice for seeing all these things that are hidden from the wise and prudent.
62.              The third kingdom, we have identified it clearly, which all history books in the whole world bears witness of its emergence according to these order in the Bible. What of the fourth kingdom?
63.              Let us go back to Daniel chapter 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.
64.              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. 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.
65.              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.
66.              Are you seeing what is happening? It is on record that the Roman Empire broke into ten pieces. They broke into ten pieces to fulfill this word.
67.              I can remember that inside that kingdom we have the Sueves, Basques, Franks, Burgundi, Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Vandals, Bretons and the rest of them. They were ten in number. Before it was false unity, yet among all other empires, that was the strongest. It requires God’s own Kingdom to break its backbone.
68.              Now, we have noticed these kingdoms, we will name them now. This is exactly what history and the Bible revealed which we will see in Saint Luke chapter 2 verse 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.” KJV.
69.               Augustus Caesar is now reigning. This is the last kingdom. Augustus Caesar of Roman Empire, the fourth kingdom, he has now made a decree to the whole world because, from history Rome conquered Greece.
70.              Luke chapter 3 verse 1-2, “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,
71.              Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.” KJV.
72.              In the fifteenth year of the king of Roman Empire, in the fifteenth year of his reign the word of God came unto John in the wilderness. In that fifteenth year, remember the Bible is saying something, when this man was ruling, Pilate was in Jerusalem.
73.              You know about Pilate? He was in the wilderness; Herod was also in his own territory. Remember that Pilate wanted to release Jesus Christ but the Jews said that if he dares do it that he will no longer be a friend to Caesar.
74.              Remember that time, that Jesus Christ was met by the Jews to test His faith saying, “Look at these coins, who do we pay this tax to?” He said, Whose head is in the coin?” They said that it was Caesar’s. He said, “Give to Caesar that which belongs to Caesar.”
75.              Remember that God is establishing His Church. We are coming to something. I have a target when I reach it, I will stop the Message. Amen.

CHRIST IS THE OWNER OF HIS CHURCH
John the Baptist also spoke about the Kingdom. We have seen him in Matthew chapter 3 verse 2, “And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” KJV.
2.                  This was what he preached; which means he was in expectation. John the Baptist came preaching in the anticipation of the Kingdom of Heaven. I do not know whether somebody got what I am saying?
3.                  If it is not truth, correct me. There is a reason why I am saying it gradually. Jesus Christ preached that the Kingdom is at hand and added that the time is fulfilled.
4.                  Mark chapter 1 verse 15, “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the Gospel.” KJV.
5.                  What? Jesus is preaching now and saying, “Repent and believe the Gospel for the Kingdom of God is at hand, for the time is fulfilled,” because the fourth kingdom has emerged. John has started his preaching, and he was anticipating that Kingdom. Jesus Christ came telling the people to believe the Gospel, that the time is fulfilled. That the Kingdom of God may be established.
6.                  Repent and believe the Gospel for the hour has come for my word to come to pass. Remember that Christ was born in the days of the Roman rule. Jesus Christ instructed the Apostles to preach the same message saying, ”The kingdom of God is at hand”.
7.                  Matthew chapter 10 verse 7, “And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” KJV.
8.                  If the Kingdom had come that time, would there be any reason for them to say that it is at hand? No! Which means as you go preaching, tell them that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, that they should expect it, that they should believe you and wait for it, for the time is fulfilled. It will not tarry too long.
9.                  Jesus Christ Himself promised to build the Church in Matthew chapter 16 verse 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.
10.              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.
11.              By this, who is the owner of the Church? Thus, any Church that is not owned by Christ which is the Word of God, that Church is man-made, that Church is Earthly. Call it a business centre. It is counterfeit, Satan placed it there to deceive the elect but the elect can never be deceived. 
12.              Ephesians chapter 5 verse 25-27, “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,
13.              That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” KJV.
14.              Who is He presenting it to? Is He presenting it to Kumuyi? You see the mistake people make! When you give them the glorious Gospel of Christ, they will take it and go back to the Pastor and start asking, “Pastor please is this truth?” What do you expect him to tell you?
15.              If you buy any goods and present it to your enemy to examine it for you, what do you think he will tell you? He will tell you that you bought imitation or he will tell you that you are being cheated. Something that you know that he does not know and you want him to tell you the truth about that thing, what do you expect from him?
16.              People behave as if Christ will present His Church to them but the Bible said that He will present it to Himself. And it must be without spot or wrinkle or blemish.  
17.              If you look at the society today, we have big men, self-appointed men of God that are not afraid of anything. Foolish men, blind people. God said, “My glory I will share with no man.” Check your Bible.
18.              Psalms 111 verse 3, “His work is honorable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth forever.” KJV.
19.              Who answered “Daddy”? It is God. However, today we have reverend, some people answer “Daddy” and condemn Roman Catholic that call their own “Father.” What is the difference between “Father” and “Daddy”? That is End-time deceit. It is the spirit of delusion.
20.              Acts 20: 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.
21.              Who is the Church of God? Who purchased it? With your own blood? No! With His own blood. Somebody made himself Lord over somebody’s heritage. This will tell you whether you are in the Church of a human being or in the Church of Jesus Christ. Do not worry, at the end I will ask you a question.
22.              Christ is the owner of His Church and He cannot share His glory with any man. He is the Administrator of His Church, and He has commanded His ministers to be very careful the way they handle the affairs in His Kingdom. You are administrators God has appointed to look after His own heritage. At the end you will have a reward from the Man that appointed you. And ministers you know it is a privilege, not a merit. Do you know that?
23.              A lot of people may be qualified to be ambassadors but only few will be privileged to be appointed ambassadors. The privileged ones must be very careful because anything you do will be attributed to the nation that appointed ambassador.
24.              Nigerian ambassador to America must never behave recklessly, for any statement he makes there will be credited to Nigeria. Don’t you know that? If he does not represent Nigeria well, Nigeria will repatriate him. America may even reject him, declare him an undesirable element, an unworthy ambassador.
25.              How will he be retained In Nigeria? The security agents will wait for him at the airport, lay hands on him and put him in the prison for disgracing Nigeria.
26.              You are ambassadors of Christ, don’t you know that? You are Christ representatives. God is using you to reconcile Himself with the world. Without you nobody is saved.  
27.              After Christ died, resurrected and still went to Heaven, people still waited for the Kingdom of God which was promised to them.
28.              St. Luke 23:21, “(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.              Who was that person? Joseph of Arimathaea who also was waiting? Thus, he was not the person that started the whole thing. The people waited and waited.
30.              That is why Jesus Christ said, “Rejoice for your eyes have seen all these things and your ears heard all these things, that many Prophets of old waited to see what you have seen but they could not hear what you have heard. Blessed are your ears for hearing it. Something that was hidden from the wise and the prudent, but people like you, it is revealed to you.” But what is good in you?
31.              You see, Joseph waited, remember that by this time, Christ has gone into glory, yet the Kingdom was yet not come. It is the Kingdom of Heaven we are expecting on Earth “Thy kingdom come as it is in Heaven;” and the Kingdom of Heaven is what we are expecting to see its establishment on Earth.  
32.              Jesus thought that the Kingdom will come with power before some of the living Apostles of that day will taste of death. He told the followers that His Kingdom will come with power, before many of them that were hearing Him alive will taste of death.
33.              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.
34.              Is it Bible? I love the way the thing is going, I want to see your hands flowing.  
35.               He told them to remain in Jerusalem till the day they will receive this power which will come with the Holy Spirit. 
36.              St. 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.
37.              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.
38.              Act of the Apostles 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.
39.              Now the Church which is the Kingdom of God or the Kingdom of Heaven or the House of God is presented during the Christian Age. When Christ was alive, nobody answered a Christian. Christ was born a Jew and lived under the Jewish Laws, but He preached Christianity as a will, that immediately He left, all His followers were identified and they were called Christians in Antioch.
40.              As long as the man that made the will is alive, the will is of no effect. However, the moment that man dies, that will, automatically will come into effect. Is that Bible?
41.              Acts chapter 1 verse 4 and verse 12,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.” 
42.              Verse 12: Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a Sabbath day's journey.” KJV.
43.              They have obeyed the will of the man who spoke to them, that is Jesus, the Christ of that day. I want you to see the precision, the legal order by which the followers of Christ were obeying Him. They accompanied Him to the mountain, He told them, “Go back and tarry in Jerusalem. Do not ever depart until you are endowed with power.”
44.              When He went into glory, many eyes saw Him, their eyes were fixed in the sky and the angel of the Lord saw them and said, “Ye men of today, why fixing your eyes on the sky? This Jesus Christ you have seen ascending, the same you will see descending.” Then they went home.
45.              The Bible said, “They went back to Jerusalem and tarried.” They did not say, “To your tents O Israel for our master is no longer in our midst.” They did not say, “Now that He has gone, we can now do anything.” Nobody did that.
46.              Gently, gradually they went back to Jerusalem and tarried because they believe the masterpiece can never fail.  How we ought to believe in every word of God, not with our head but by practicing it to the letter: how we ought to follow His examples.
47.              Act of the Apostles 2:1-11:  “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.
48.              And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
49.              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.
50.              And they were all amazed and marveled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
51.              Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judea, 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,
52.              Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. KJV. 
53.              Something is taking place. Now watch, where we read told us earlier that this Kingdom will be established in the last days and in Jerusalem. Not only that, that the word of God will go forth from Jerusalem. In other words, the work will proceed from there.  
54.              Act of the Apostles chapter 2 verse 16 through 17: But this is that which was spoken by the Prophet Joel
55.              Have you seen it? The Apostle is now pointing you to the Prophets.
56.              And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God
57.              When is he speaking? On the Pentecost day. Peter is now standing up with power, filled with the Holy Spirit and he is now referring people on the fulfillment of the scripture. He is informing people concerning the fulfillment of the prophecies, that God said it through the mouth of the Prophets that in the last days,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.”
58.              That is what you are witnessing among men all over the world; these men are not drunk, what you are hearing in your different languages, it is the promise of the hour. You balance it with the prophecy, see it coming to pass.   
59.              Verse 29 to 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.
60.              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; 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.
61.              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,
62.              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.
63.               On this note, I say remain in your sanctified estate, remain blessed in Him eternally. Amen.
