WHY YOU MUST BE MINDFUL OF THE WORDS OF THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS

Preached on 23rd November 1996 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN (THE LAMINATED HUMAN BEING) “Truth has no substitute” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

I am HE. I am sent for your salvation. I am also sent for the destruction of the world. Believe it if you can…

—The   Son of Man
From the Message: RE-EXAMINE YOUR FAITH  PP.9

If you are not fore-ordained by God’s pre-knowledge and numbered among his people, surely you you will follow the way of other people.

Animals know their owner but my people do not know me, says the Lord God Almighty. I say  I am The Son of Man and they got offended. Calling it blasphemy. Now answer this question Son of Man and Son of God which one is greater?

Without me you can do nothing. If you don’t believe I am He, you will die in your sins. Every dispensation must have an approved vessel. A vessel unto God.

Go to Satan if you don’t know him. Satan must teach many of you about God whom you have refused to listen to.

No man knoweth the SON but the Father. And No MAN knoweth the FATHER but the SON and those to whom the SON shall reveal Him                                 - SON OF MAN

                                                THE IMAGE OF GOD PG. 53

BE MINDFUL OF THE WORDS OF THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS (1)
Many of you that have suffered excommunication make sure that you are fully restored. Do not bother but only be spiritually possessed. You can be godly restored but not spiritually possessed; and that is very dangerous—very, very dangerous. Brother Paul, are you taking note? Your joy of salvation has not been fully restored. Something is still hanging somewhere.
2.    Thus, if I were you I will pray that God will open my eyes and show me what I will do. When you develop a rightful attitude concerning a problem, automatically you will solve it. But when you develop a negative attitude, interest will no longer be there.
3.    Sister, the earlier you stop pastoring your family, the better for you. Brother Paul, sister should stop pastoring your family. Pastor them and allow yourself also to be pastored. You may think that I will continue to excommunicate people. Very soon I will stop excommunicating people but that does not mean that everybody is going to rapture; but my desire is that all of you will go to Rapture. This is my own desire, but what will hinder you is in your hand, and these are things we are trying to remove before it will be too late.
4.    Many of us in this Faith are selfish and selfishness is the worst thing. Selfishness is not good. In the message I called “Spiritual Harmony,” I said that the husband and the wife must stay in harmony. You know what I mean. They must agree in all things.
5.    The children must have spiritual harmony. Sister, prophecy is a gift. I think you know that! It is not salvation. Gift and calling of God are without repentance.
6.    Many like the message when it is shouting, but watch the still small voice, for that is where our lives lie. When it is shouting kia, kia, kia; it is for the people outside, but when it sounds in a still small voice, it is saving somebody from inside. Even if it is a family message or a household message, it is not what you go home and say, “Brother, this and that” no.
7.    I am coming closer to something. If I get to that point you will know that we are in this Faith for something serious. Now, you know another problem I have noticed among you, and that problem does not spare anybody. If it comes into your life the Bible said, “Take heart.” What is that problem? Rebellious instinct.
8.    What is rebellious instinct? It is a natural tendency in a man that makes him or her behave in a certain way without any feeling. It is a natural tendency in a man that makes him or her to behave in a starchy way. In a way that is not even godly. You may not mean to walk contrary or behave disorderly but you see yourself walking contrary.
9.    You try to come back to the right way, no way. Every effort you make to walk rightly, no way. The moment you identify it and crush it, the better for you. How would you crush it? By obeying every instruction. The moment you volunteer to obey every instruction, there is no way rebellious instinct can rise up in you.
10.  You are not holier than your Brother and your Brother is not holier than you BUT YOU ARE ALL HOLY BRETHREN, HOLY SAINTS OF GOD AND PARTAKERS OF THIS HEAVENLY KINGDOM.
11. The moment you know where the message is coming from, that will help you to remember the message “BE MINDFUL OF THE WORDS THAT ARE SPOKEN TO YOU BY THE APOSTLES AND THE PROPHETS”.
12. Colossians chapter 1 verse 1, “Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother.” KJV.
13. Ephesians chapter 1 verse 1, “Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the Faithful in Christ Jesus” KJV.
14. 2 Timothy 1:1 “Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus” KJV.
15. 1 Timothy 1:1, “Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope.” KJV.
16. Titus 1 verse 1-  “Paul, a servant of God, and an Apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the Faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness.” KJV.
17. What am I trying to establish? I am trying to establish that no Apostle comes by the will of man. No Apostle ever comes because he wants to claim to be anything. All that came claiming to be an Apostle, a little while, their nakedness were made known. Because when they were tested from the scriptures, they placed scriptures upside down. Some even thought that translation had already taken place.
18. By their character, by their fruit, brethren discovered that they were false Apostles. But any real Apostle that is called of God, ordained of God by the foundation of the Holy Spirit that comes by the will of God, must be mindful of the Word of God. No minister of God ever works alone.
19. In all his salutations, you notice Paul in Ephesians, Paul in Timothy, Paul in Titus, Paul in so, so and so. When Paul was talking to Corinthians Church, anybody that rejected Titus rejected Paul. When they rejected Timothy, they rejected Paul.
20. I am saying that what you see in the five-fold is a team work. In the Bride Ministry, for us to be perfect and follow Christ in the air, you should not reject the message you are hearing from the pulpit. Neither should you fine-tune it at home to suit you. It is a message for the branch and you are not the branch. You are a part of the branch. Every local Church is a part of the branch. If you do not want to take that message, God will take it.
21.           The hour has come for those that have been hiding under the cloak of this message to say good-bye to us. If nothing brings you in this Church, if for any reason you just embraced this Faith and that reason is outside the salvation of your soul, you are leaving us very soon.
22.           The Holy Ghost came down in Onitsha and ordered all of us to go home and check our foundations. Foundations mean a lot in a believer’s life. He said, “Go back and sit down in your house, find out whether the message got to you, and why you chose this Faith. Find out exactly how you came into this Faith. It is very, very nice. If you cannot enter this camp, there is no way you can make a head way.
23.           There are some who the Lord met in dreams. There are some He showed visions even when they were in mechanized denominations. There are many in this Faith the Lord revealed many things to.
24.           There are some which the Lord met with audible voice concerning the rules, telling them that nothing is coming out. At that point what happened to it? The Lord dealt with many individuals there in divers ways. The Lord dealt with them at diverse times, in divers ways. The days we are about to go in, there is no Brother, there is no Sister.
25.           What we are preaching all this while, you are going to tell the world the type of message you have believed. You will tell them why you are preaching this nonsense message. This is the hour and nobody will come to help you out.
26.           Hebrews 1 verse 1-3, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the Prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high, KJV.
27.           Hebrews 2 verse 1-6, “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward;
28.           How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him ; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?
29.           For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?” KJV.
30.           If it is truth that no prophecy of any scripture is allowed for any private interpretation and that no man of God ever spoke because he wanted to speak, if it is sure and certain, whatever you have been hearing all this while, that all came from God, the Bible is saying that as many as believe in the truth now will have to pay ernest attention now than ever.
31.           If you are playing with it before, from now stop playing with it. If you have been careless over it before, from now start being careful over it. If you have not been minding all these words, be mindful of them from now.
32.           Brethren, is there any way any man can deny this Faith? Has God not confirmed this Faith in divers ways, with divers signs and wonders and miracles? Mostly, we still have in our hands the more sure word of prophecy which cannot fail.
33.           You see why the Lord is saying, from now, if you were playing with it before, stop playing with it. You have to pay the most ernest heed to the things you have been hearing for none of them came from the will of man, they all came expressly from the Lord.
34.           If one word spoken by Moses, and a man disobeyed it, and he was punished instantly to death—what do you think that will happen to a man that will neglect, disobey the commandment of our Christ which He has given to us through the mouth of His approved servant? Whose ministry was confirmed in our eyes with great signs and gift of the Holy Ghost, and miracles?
35.           The time of this ignorance, God overlooked. Nobody can say “Now I did not know before.” If you did not know before, from now have you seen it? Have you seen it from the angle where God wants everybody to see it? Not when I go down, maybe your ministers will be coming to the pulpit to help some of you that are dull in understanding to understand the message.
36.           From that time you have concluded that the Apostle did not say so. You are saying that your minister is deceiving you.
37.           Remember what I told you in the Church before. I only hang out something; I go my way, leaving with scriptures. But the moment your ministers will come, they will confirm it using all scriptures, driving you back to the Old and New Testaments, showing you individual examples. Amen.




BE MINDFUL OF THE WORDS OF THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS (2)

BE MINDFUL OF THE WORDS OF THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS (2)
Hebrews 2 verse 10-18, “For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
2.              Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
3.              Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
4.              And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
5.              Wherefore in all things it behooved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succor them that are tempted.” KJV.
6.              We are having dealings with our own personal Brother and not with a stranger. If you do not see it from that angle, start seeing it from now. Nobody is a stranger in our midst, even Christ is not a stranger also.
7.              The Bible said that He has passed through this way before, suffered all that we are suffering in the flesh for which cause He was able to run to our rescue any time we are in danger, any time we are in trouble and we call upon Him. Seeing that He has had this experience before.
8.              He that sanctifies and they that are sanctified, the two are one for which cause He is not ashamed to call them His brethren. Thus, we appreciate one another’s sufferings in every way. In all His sufferings He never murmured, He never complained, He did not blame Peter or Paul. But in your own, be very sure that you do not blame anybody. For I know that when the situation becomes worse, the blame will arise.
9.              Who are you going to blame now? Were you not told in the very beginning that to follow this Faith may starve you, that to follow this Faith may make you poor, to follow this Faith may also make you rich, could make you feed very well? No matter the way it may come to you, take it that way for that is the way God has appointed it to you. Do not blame anybody.
10.           Hebrews 3 verse 1-18, “Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the Heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.
11.           For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honor than the house. For every house is builded by some man ; but he that built all things is God.
12.           And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after; But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
13.           Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, Today if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
14.           When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do always err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
15.           So I swore in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
16.           But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end;
17.           While it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
18.           But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness? And to whom swore he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?” KJV.
19.           1 Thessalonians chapter 2 verse 13-14, “For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. For ye, brethren, became followers of the Churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews” KJV.
20.           The Bible is saying that when brethren from other local Churches received the Word of God from the mouth of the Apostles, they never said that they received the words of men. Rather they rejoiced and said that they received the words of God, which of a truth was exactly what they received.   However, because their faith was established fully that they received the word of God and not the word of men, the Bible said that it worked effectually in them that received it.
21.           That is why I said that the way you receive the word of God will determine the level it will work in you. If you receive it as the word of man, there is no way the word of man can transform you. For the word of man profiteth nothing. However, if you receive it as the word of God, by and by it must work effectually in you.
22.           The problem of many of you lies here also. Where you attribute every message to a man. Every message, you can never say, “It is Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost said, God spoke to me through the mouth of my Brother,” rather you will say, “Brother reprimanded me,” or “Brother rebuked me,” Brother did this and that. You can never see God in your Brother one day. As long as you cannot see God in your Brother, what then is the accord between you and that man? What is the basis of our unity? Is it not God? When God is not in you, what do you do?
23.           Many of you have not seen God in your ministers for one day. Because they have not said the things you wanted them to say. If it is possible that all of you should be preachers, you would have been coming here. There are people that are even doing so, if it would have been possible one day for them to come and talk to the Church.
24.           What are they coming to talk to the Church? They have messages they have framed already, where they will bring down the ministers. Where they will fight back individuals that have offended them. If you are in this Faith, all you have to do is to repent. For there is no time again for that type of childishness. We have passed that stage. WHAT WE ARE DOING NOW IS ROUNDING UP. All those things we left undone, we are correcting them now. We are coming to perfection.  
25.           Acts chapter 13 verse 42-52, “And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
26.           And the word of the Lord was published throughout all the region. But the Jews stirred up the devout and honorable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts.
27.           But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium. And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.” KJV.
28.           If you neglect the words of the Apostles and Prophets, you will die in your sin. For the Lord ordained them and appointed them to be your light unto the Gentiles. To open your eyes and to make your sacrifice acceptable unto God. They are appointed as God’s own instrument for salvation to as many as will believe the words of their mouths. IN OTHER WORDS, ON THE DAY THE LORD WILL JUDGE THE SECRETS OF MEN, HE IS GOING TO JUDGE THIS GENERATION ACCORDING TO MY WORDS.
29.           When the people could not listen to the message, brethren put off their shoes and went away, seeing that they neglected salvation in their day. For the Lord appointed them to be saviours.
30.           Why you must pay earnest heed to the words you are hearing from your Prophets and Apostles. That is the word of salvation in your day. If you miss it, you have deliberately and foolishly missed salvation. If you want salvation, follow the word.
31.           Acts chapter 10 verse 36-44, “The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
32.           How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
33.           Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly; Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
34.           And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. To him give all the Prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
35.           While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.” KJV.
36.           Ephesians 4 verse 11-13, “And he gave some, Apostles; and some, Prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
37.           Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” KJV.
38.           1 Corinthians  12 verse 28-31, “So, God has appointed some in the Church [for His own use first Apostles] (special messengers); second [Prophets] (inspired preachers and expounders); third teachers; then wonder-workers; then those with ability to heal the sick; helpers; administrations; [speakers in tongues].”
39.           Note, what the Bible called the Apostles and the Prophets, expounders for they expound the word of life to you. If you neglect it, you are neglecting your life.
40.           If you play with it, you are playing with your life. Though you may have your dreams or prophecy.
41.           Verse 30-31, “Do all possess extraordinary powers of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? But earnestly desire {and} zealously cultivate the greatest {and} best gifts {and} graces (the higher gifts and the choicest graces). And yet I will show you a still more excellent way [one that is better by far and the highest of them all—love]” AMP.
42.           Note, if you love me keep my commandment. The highest of it all! You can prophesy, you can possess the greatest gift with the Bible; you have done a very good thing. However, yet I show you a more excellent way. That you be mindful of the words that are being spoken to you by the Prophets and Apostles. Knowing very well the vessels from where you are receiving all the messages. Knowing very well the Lord Himself has already confirmed their ministries in divers ways, with miracles, with signs and wonders.
43.           Knowing very well that they have never spoken from their own will, but the Lord has been the One that has been speaking to you through their mouths. And there is no other way God can reach you except through them.
44.           Neglecting their words means neglecting the Words of God. Playing with them means playing with God’s Words. What is more, in every way, there is no way you can link up without their ministry for their ministry is the bridge between you and God. It serves as a neck linking the body and the head. Neglecting it means being cut off from the eternal life. If you have been playing with it before, if all you have been hearing, you are not mindful, you have been guilty of them.
45.           The Lord is saying only but one thing, “Repent today”. If you have grieved out the Holy Ghost, go back to Pentecost; then pray for the new refreshening of the Holy Ghost. Amen

PRESERVING YOUR MOST HOLY FAITH
I will love to talk to you in types. Take note of this Message. Earlier on, I spoke to you on the necessity of being mindful of the words that are spoken to you by the Prophets and Apostles.  
2.            My topic is “Preserving Your Most Holy Faith”. Or “Building Up Your Most Holy Faith.” You are all living witnesses that we are living in a world where people claim to be one thing or the other. Everybody claims that he is a child of God.
3.            Every denomination claims that they are right. Apart from us, all denominations, every denomination believes and propagates the doctrines of godliness, according to their own belief.
4.            For example, in the Roman Catholic Church, they believe that they will be holy in the grave, that’s why if somebody dies and he is buried for many years, one day they will remove the body, carry the bones to their own laboratory to test whether he was a saint or not. Or whether he should be crowned a saint. That is their own doctrine. While some others believe that nobody can be a saint while he is alive. In other words, it is when they die that they will become saints.
5.            However, in this Faith, we believe that we are saints of the Most High God. We believe that we are saints in this flesh. That if we die as saints, we shall resurrect as saints. If we die as sinners, we shall resurrect as sinners for the grave changes only but one thing and that is the man’s dwelling place. The grave can never transform a man.
6.            A sinner cannot be a saint in the grave. A sinner cannot be a saint in the resurrection morning. Hence, as many as believe it, you are going to be the people that will benefit from what I am going to say. I am going to give you the keys, and there I will stop for I want to speak on many topics before I stop this Message.
7.            Just believe Me; I will touch on so many of them. These topics that I am going to touch on, I believe with all my heart that if your ministers will fall back on them, they will actually help you into the kingdom.
8.            You know we have the Heavenly Kingdom and the Earthly Kingdom. You can be in the Earthly kingdom and miss the Heavenly Kingdom. That’s why I gave you a message here and warned you seriously that nobody should deceive you by making you to believe that you are already in rapture. That you have already inherited eternal life. Do not ever believe that mess.
9.            Rather you are on your way to possessing it. It is not fully possessed until you see yourself sitting face to face with Christ. As long as you are still seeing hospitals around, you are seeing mortuary, you are seeing ambulance, you are seeing Army and Police, seeing caskets here and there, that goes to tell you that you are still in the flesh. It means nothing has happened yet.
10.         As long as you are still seeing death, it goes to show you that you are still in the Earth. If you do not have these things in mind, you may go about being deceived thinking that you have entered into that Promised Rest.
11.         You have not entered into that Rest until you see yourself where you will die no more. You will no longer go about to labour for your food, no school fees, no worry, no anxiety; that is the time your journey is finished. Anything outside that, the Lord does not know that. Any teaching contrary to this, is false teaching.
12.         Thus, do not ever relax, keep on fighting, keep on marching on until you see your glorified body not on Earth but in the air, where you will be there with all the saints of God drawn from all over the countries in the world. Where every sorrow will vanish. Until you see yourself there, please, I am pleading all of you, do not relent your efforts. Do not relax.
13.         Preachers do not be tired until you have preached both yourself and your believers into that particular place. Until you have preached everybody into that place, do not be tired.
14.         However, remember one thing: I have been sounding this warning to Elders, the Lord knows the heart of all the ministers. The Lord knows when your ministry is not helping anybody again. If you come to a point where your ministry does not help anybody, get ready to bear the consequences.
15.         Moses came to a point where his ministry does not help anybody. The Bible is saying that we should build up our most holy Faith and I am saying that we are not going to stop at building it, let us also preserve it.
16.         Do you know that salvation is fragile? If you are not careful, you will not preserve your salvation for twenty-four hours. If you are a careless Brother or a careless Sister, your salvation can last for only ten minutes in a day.
17.         Before you know it, you will be crying, weeping and before you know it, the thing is finished. The following day the thing is finished. Another day, the same experience and that will tell you that you are a careless believer.
18.         A real sincere believer that is careful does not fall at a particular point two times. I know that you must by and by fall but do not fall at a particular point twice. When you fall do not consider where you have fallen but consider where you have gotten up.
19.         A lot of people have been trialing Odoemena by preaching many things against Me but unfortunately they do not know Me personally. They cannot even dictate His Church; that has been the only thing that has been keeping Him alive but any moment from now, His picture will go round the whole world.
20.         Hence, it requires no more introduction so that if they see Him on the way, they will recognize Him. Anywhere they see Him; they can now stop for what they have been praying for is already in our hands.
21.         Shortly, I will put off this flesh. Moreover, the Holy Ghost told us ahead of time that any day He is arrested, just say bye-bye to Him for He will never come back again.
22.           Any day you see people marching Him out, just say to Him bye and do not ever dream of seeing Him for it is all over. You know that to be truth.
23.           Now ministers, a time will come in your ministry where the Lord will try to tempt you. He will loose your nut. Well, let me use the language that you will understand.
24.           You are going to see a day in your ministry where you will not know whether you are going up or you are going down. It will appear as if your ministry is stagnant, it will appear as if there is no headway. You sit down and pray, search your Bible yet you find it difficult to get a message. You come to the pulpit, you will look very much confused. What is happening around you, you cannot actually say it. Watch, the hand of the Lord is behind it.
25.           At that hour, something very terrible will befall you. Take note of it. If care is not taken, if that thing comes, you will abandon the Faith. At that stage, the Lord will loose the nut very well and allow you to dwell in a grief that will even embarrass you. Watch, the hand of the Lord is there.
26.           He will permit you to roll into it, He will help you by bringing you out of that pit, and you will notice that because of one experience, you will regain strength more than ever. Where you will rise up will be higher than where you fell down.
27.           That experience will shoot you up to a very high realm where that experience will no longer be mentioned in your life. It is not punishing you but it is a help.
28.           The rest of the congregation I come to you now. Your most holy Faith must be preserved by all means. Others have Faith, everybody claims to have holy Faith, we are not quarreling with that but the Lord is saying that you have the most holy Faith. If you do not recognize what you are holding, if you do not know the importance, preserving it will be nonsense to you.
29.           When a man spends millions of naira to purchase a V-Boot Mercedes car, will he play with it? He can never allow people to come near that vehicle any longer; so it is with what you have right now; so it is with what is handed to you. You have received the most holy Faith in this generation.
30.           It is the most holy Faith that will produce the most holy people; the most holy individuals. If you know that what you have is the most holy Faith, it is not claiming. The day I demonstrated it in Onitsha Church, I called it “Mercury Message”, “Snow white message,” “spotless message,’ “tried message producing a tried life,” it must be preserved.
31.           How do you preserve it? By paying heed to every message that you have received so far—by paying heed to the words of the Prophets and of the Apostles. By obeying every instruction from the approved servant of God. By so doing, you preserve your most holy Faith, you keep it unspotted from the world and you are preserving your life for your life reflects your Faith.
32.           If your Faith is most holy, watch your life you can never be a crow or a vulture. You must be in a position to hate whatever God hates and appreciate whatever God loves. It is when people forget the importance of what they are holding that they go about misbehaving, they go about and talk anyhow, behave and think anyhow.
33.           Peter chapter 2 verse 9, “But you are a chosen race, o royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds {and} display the virtues and perfections of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” AMP.
34.           You see why it is necessary to preserve your Most Holy Faith. You are a special person, God’s own chosen people, God’s own purchased special people, bestowed you with His own Faith which is God’s own Faith. That is where the Bible said, have not the Faith of Christ with respect of persons. Such a Faith you are holding, is not even your Faith, it is the Faith of our Christ that has been bestowed on you. In addition, there is only but one group of people that will escape with that Faith, and that is the Bride of Christ.
35.           For the Bride and the Bridegroom must be one. It requires the most holy Christ to marry the most holy Church. Otherwise, the two can never live together in harmony. There must be disagreement.
36.           I keep on telling my brethren that it requires a holy people to live with a holy God. For God is of a pure eye than to behold iniquity. People that cannot pay the price, people that are weak, people that have been rejected, that are condemned in this present age go about saying that it is heresy.
37.           Tell me what makes it heresy? Is it not well written in your Bible, “Be ye Holy for I am Holy”? If God is demanding holiness from us, is He demanding too much? Can’t we trace from the Bible people that lived a holy life even under the blood of animal? How much more in our own dispensation where God shed His own Blood which is higher than that of a human being?
38.           If under the blood of ordinary beast which is below a human being, a man could be holy, then in this dispensation where Christ shed His own blood, a man should not be only holy for if we stop at being holy, it then means that Christ’s blood is just like that of ordinary beast. We are not ordinary holy people but we are most holy. The most holy God produced the most holy children who will know what is in your heart.
39.           It is because of the nature of this Faith, this most holy Faith that you have decided to abandon everything you were. He hates any spot, any wrinkle or blemish in any form or shape. He does not know any other thing than the Word because the Bride and the Word must be one. If it is not the Word, the Bride cannot echo Amen to it. In addition, nothing separates the Word from the Bride if not evil.
40.           How I wish you can understand what I am saying for that will help you. I am talking of the Bride as if the Bride is coming from somewhere. You are the person I am talking to. You are God’s only habitation.
41.           You must preserve your most holy Faith. I am trying to put down a little background.
42.           James chapter 2 verse 1, “My brethren, have not the Faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.” KJV.
43.           In your honest attempt to preserve this most holy Faith, you must never look at anybody’s face. The Faith does not know your wife, your son, your daughter; your mother or this and that for the Faith can only recognize Christ in a human being.
44.           The Faith calls white, white; and black, black. This Faith is not partial in judgment. It does not respect anybody but Christ. Whatever we are doing in this Faith, we aim at pleasing Him who has called us. We aim at preserving this Faith, keeping it unspotted in every manner—that has been our target.
45.           If you do not know the importance, keeping it becomes very difficult but the moment you know the importance, it become very easy to keep. If you spot your own, it can never lift you up because rapture is your Faith.
46.           It is your Faith that will take you to rapture, and for your Faith to take you to rapture, your Faith must be an outstanding Faith. It must be the most holy Faith. If what it takes to preserve this Faith is that the whole world will hate us, we will be ready to bear it. Whatever it demands, we are ready, provided that this Faith is kept Faithful till the end. If we fall, we blame ourselves.
47.           1 Corinthians 16 verse 13, “Watch ye, stand fast in the Faith, quit you like men, be strong.” KJV.
48.           Is He referring to men alone? It says that Sisters in the Church, you must see yourselves as men. Be strong and do not be weak. Do not go about quoting scriptures that you are weaker vessels without knowing the interpretation thereof. Stand steadfast in the Faith; like men, be strong. You do not need to shiver or to be shaken in mind because of what tomorrow will be and then you compromise it. Do not do that. Be a man enough to have your dos and don’ts for it will help you.
49.           When you are walking with somebody, be able to say, “Brother please I can never cross this line! This is the extent I know I can go with you on this matter!”
50.           Every true believer must have his boundary line in your dealings with all men. When you stay on your line, you stand firm there. However, many of us do not have boundary lines. If you do not have boundary line for yourself, there is no way you can preserve this Gospel truth. Everything will be flying out in your lives.
51.           Acts 26 verse 16-18, “But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
52.           Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
53.           To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” KJV.
54.           When you talk of sanctification, sanctification is linked by Faith. There is no way you can tell Me that you are sanctified and you are not preserving your most holy Faith.
55.           Sanctification is by Faith, justification is by Faith, Holy Ghost baptism is by Faith also, and this Faith must be strictly preserved. How do you preserve it? Remember Faith has muscles, Faith has mouth, Faith is a human being, Faith can be nourished. At times, you starve your Faith. When you starve your Faith, to express it becomes very difficult. However, when you nourish the Faith, you will see that your Faith will develop enough muscles and to express it becomes very easy.
56.           You will nourish your Faith by paying heed to the voices spoken unto you by God’s Apostles and Prophets. You will nourish it by your fervent prayer. Then you are sanctified.
57.           However, where this Faith is not preserved, there is no way you can be sanctified. Repentance is not your sanctification. When you continue in the Faith then you can say, “I am a child of God indeed.” That thing you say that you believe, that thing which you say is your doctrine for which course you are ready to die, hold it firmly without wavering, without staggering in the Faith.
58.           You say you are a believer and tomorrow you are a pagan. There are some among you in this Faith, sitting in our midst that do not know whether they are saved or not.
59.           There are some of you in this Faith now, that if I ask you: Are you sure you are saved, are you sure that if Christ comes to take His Bride now, you will be in the number? Many of you are not certain about it
60.           They will say “Brother, I do not know ooo! I am just praying, I do not know ooo!” Why shouldn’t you know? Don’t you know when you are obeying and when you are not obeying? Don’t you know when you are obeying the messages you have received so far and when you are not obeying?
61.           If you do not know when you are saved and when you are not saved,  that goes to show that you are not a believer. I am not in the Church to preach assurance of salvation for you should know more than that. When you were coming here, didn’t you know that you are coming to the Church?
62.           IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING TO UP TO THIS MOMENT, WHY ARE YOU IN THIS CHURCH? BY NOW YOU SHOULD TELL EVERYBODY WHERE YOU ARE HEADING TO. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHERE YOU ARE HEADING TO. PLEASE MEET YOUR MINISTERS, LET THEM KNOW, BECAUSE ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN ANY MOMENT FROM NOW.
63.           If you are sure that you have been saved, meet your ministers, maybe you are the one withholding rapture.
64.           You know when a man is not sure, if we say that God can catch us away from now, his heart will jump into his stomach (he will faint). When others will be saying “God, please come and take us away,” the man will be saying, “God, may it not happen this year.”
65.           If you are not sure that you are saved, please meet your ministers for I am not preaching salvation message again. I am saved and I am continuing in the Faith, growing in the Faith, building up my most holy Faith, and I will continue in this way until the day He will parcel Me home. I do not talk of leaving the Faith or drawing back for it is too late. Amen.

CHRIST IN YOU THE HOPE OF GLORY
Second Timothy 1 verse 9-14, “Who hath saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
2.              Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
3.              Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.” KJV.
4.              1 Corinthians chapter 9 verse 18, “What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.” KJV.
5.               Hebrews chapter 3 verse 6, “But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. KJV.
6.              Note, if we hold our calling firm to the end. Christ the Son of God is Faithful over His own house and we believers are His own house.
7.               When we say, let us go into the house of the Lord, somebody might begin to translate the meaning. Now this is God’s own house, you are God’s own house; I am God’s own house on one condition: if you can preserve this Faith firmly unto the end, hold the confidence you have in your Faith without wavering, then you become God’s own house.
8.              For some time now, we were carrying God’s house too far. God told us that He can never live in a house made with hands, that He lives in a human being, a tabernacle made without hand whose house you are. That you are the temple of the living God.
9.              God said that He is going to live in you. In other words, preserving your most holy Faith means preserving your life. You see, because your Faith is the most holy, God has decided to tabernacle in you. Christ in you the hope of glory. I am coming closer.
10.           Then you will know whether God is in you or not in you. For if Christ dwells in me, He makes His abode in me. Your Faith must be the most holy Faith; it must be the Faith of Christ. Now if every believer recognizes that he is God’s house, where God is living, we will now posses our vessels in honour. We will now try to posses our vessels in honour. Anybody that will decide to defile our vessels, we will say no to it.
11.           Anything that will spot it, we will say no to it. All these years, we have carried matters too far but the Lord wants us to come closer now. For God is not building any other house. He has built His own house, finished it and He is living in His house.  
12.           However, is Christ living in you? That’s why the Bible said in second Corinthians 13:5, that if you do not know when Christ is living in you and when He is not living in you, then let it be known to you that you are not a child of God. That you have been rejected.
13.           If you do not know whether you are a child of God or not, you are just a counterfeit. Every true believer must know when he is in right relationship with God and when his relationship with God has been severed. If you do not know that, you are in problem.
14.           I am just digging the ground so that after my departure, my brethren will come, use these messages, bring them to your understanding lest you keep on carrying matters too far, and perish. This is the time we should look inwards now. We are looking inwards. I am not expecting people that will come to join the Faith. Enough is enough.
15.           Enough people are born into the kingdom even more than we expected, so we are now looking inwards to preserving all that have been granted unto us to make sure we lose nobody.
16.           We are built upon the words of the Prophets and the Apostles, Christ being the Chief Corner Stone. This is very clear, as clear as the day, as a house, as God’s own house, you are established on something. God built His house on something.
17.           Whatever I am going to preach, must go back to my first message. That is why I took my time in the beginning to nail it down very well that God’s own house where He is living now, that children of God that have formed God’ own house is built upon something, upon the words of the Prophets and the Apostles.
18.           Any house that is not standing there must surely crumble. Remember my message titled “The Two Master Builders”. We are master builders; one is building on the solid rock and another is building on the sandy soil.
19.           One day the wind will come to try the two buildings, the flood will come to try the two buildings; the tempest will rise, but one must stand while the other will crumble. It is a MUST. That’s why anywhere I go, I lay a solid foundation which no man can uproot.
20.           In this Faith, we go about building individuals for Christ by divine revelation, with what is given to you, without adding your own personal revelation. You leave that person and go your way after bringing him up … this is a Faith where somebody can come in, within one week he is perfected.
21.           This is a Faith that can shoot a man up over night, if the person comes in with all his heart and boldly follow the message—not following the message half-heartedly. If you follow the message like Caleb, with your whole heart, within forty-eight hours, you will notice the type of growth that will take place in your godly life.
22.           If you are not growing, that goes to show that you are like the plant called cactus. Cactus is a dangerous flower. Our Prophet William Branham preached about cactus. Could you imagine this type of plant that can never receive rain, during the raining season, when it should be blossoming, it is dying and during dry season when it should be dying, it is blossoming.
23.           The plant that rejects rain, by the time it should be blossoming, the leaves develop into torn. When you are in this Faith receiving the message, instead of shining like the stars of Heaven, you will become another cactus in the camp.
24.           How do we know sister cactus? How do we know brother cactus? Anybody that goes near him must receive a wound. You go near her, you must receive a wound. You know what I mean.
25.           If she stays with her follow sisters she will be tearing their cloths. You can hardly stay with her and feel comfortable. Any sister that goes near her must get defilement in one way or the other. Any brother that goes near him or her must get defilement.
26.           There is nothing good coming out of that person. That person is cactus in the camp. Sister cactus can hardly live with her brother or her sister for there must be problem upon problem. If you are cactus you better repent. So that your leaves will start blossoming again.
27.           1 Peter 4 verse 17- 18, “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” KJV.
28.           What are we saying brethren? We are looking inwards because we are certain that God will start His judgment with the saints. And if the judgment will start with the just; should we play with it? We must make sure that we are not condemned. We must make sure that we are not disapproved on trial. If we can be scarcely saved in all our effort so far, what do you think that can happen to the denomination that has never known this way of truth.
29.           I am talking of End-Time Message for they are already in a mess and the world has swallowed them. What happened to the Pentecostals has also happened to them.  
30.           From the day this ministry rose up, the Lord published the obituary of End-Time Message for two messages can never be on the land at the same time. All that were wise could have run out of the End-Time Message and say no. But blindly they were wasting time and the Lord spread out the blanket.
31.           Immediately Christ appeared on the scene, John the Baptist was taken away, and all that believed what John the Baptist was saying followed Christ. But some said no, that they will follow John.
32.           Wesley and Luther can never be on the scene at the same time. The emergence of Wesley marks the end of Luther. One must give way for the other. There is no way restoration and perfection can be at the same time. I am not preaching that you come out from merchandized religion. No.
33.           The Church has already come out. But I am taking them to the promised land for that’s my commission. He (God) said that I am to bring His children back home. That’s all. He did not say that I should go out and call them from merchandized religion. No, it is not my commission. My commission is to bring them home. I never received Moses’ commission, to go and tell Pharaoh “Let my people go.” That is William Branham’s commission and it is gone.
34.           There is no place where God said that William Branham will lead them home. That’s why he preached separation but he did not separate. Until he died, he still fellowships with every kind of organization, calling them my pleasant brethren, including full Gospel Church.
35.            Craftily he went about collecting tithe from denominations. Nevertheless, we cannot try it. Christ was born a Jew and brought up under the Jewish Laws. However, He established Christianity. That is why when He gave way all that believed Him started practicing all that He preached.
36.           Thus, that was why there was no man called a Christian when Christ was alive. It was just a will, and a will is ineffective as long as the owner is alive. Until the owner dies, the will would not be effective.
37.           We cannot try what William Branham did. ‘Thus, my follow brethren, I cannot tell you my mind here but when I get to my tabernacle, I speak the whole thing.” In other words, you are compromising so that when you will be going, they will follow you back. Because the pattern has been laid down. From that day of Pentecost, all that we could see belong to us.
38.           We are to complete it. We are representing Christ in Nigeria. If you did not come here because the time was too short, we are here now, you have been born in Nigeria. Hence, we have revived Nigeria as judgment and not to restore it again.
39.           No, anywhere you go, the number of people that you meet there is exactly the number of people that God wants to save. When you disabuse God’s calling, you think that you are living, but if you apportion yourselves, knowing that some came from Edo State, some from Taraba, some from Enugu, some from Anambra and so on. Do not be surprised that you may be the only person that will be privileged to be saved in your home town.
40.           In your hometown, you may be the only person. Is that not true? Two trees from every family. That’s the Bible.
41.           Now we know that judgment will start in our midst which has started already. What is the essence? God is judging us now so that He will not judge us when the world will be judged. We cannot be judged two times because when the world will be at freedom, is what we are getting rid of now. If we succeed in freeing ourselves now, will God accuse us again? For on that day He will protect us.
42.           Thus, watch in all your honest effort in this Faith, you still find it difficult to stand on your two feet, everyday you become an unbeliever, every message makes you an unbeliever, everyday you are weeping, you are crying.
43.           If it is like this in your midst, what do you think that will happen to the people that had never knelt down for one day to consider our God? Because there is nobody in this Faith that will desire to commit sin continually. For the reason that continuing in sin means challenging God openly. It means you are challenging God’s authority. I believe that nobody will like to challenge God. It is not possible. Amen.

GET READY FOR YOUR DEPARTURE
Ezekiel chapter 9 verse 5-6, “And to the others He said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom  is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house” KJV.
2.              Where did they start? They began with the ancient men. Who did not have the Lord’s mark on their foreheads? They do not have the seal of approval—they do not have the everlasting seal of God. You can be an elder in the Church but that is not the express ticket to Heaven.
3.              That you have been preaching for years, that is not the express ticket. That is why the Prophet said that no matter how holy the parents are, if they do not wait for their children until they are filled with the Holy Ghost, they must surely perish. I can balance it in the Bible.
4.              When God destroyed the age of Noah, no little child was saved. Even one-day old child was not spared. That is why Paul said, “Follow the Lord your God and receive your own mark because He is coming to do scanning in the camp, and in that scanning, He said, ‘Concerning my people I will use lamp to search everybody, to make sure that nobody dodges it. I will use lamp to scan the camp.’”
5.              He said, “Anybody that does not have that mark will be destroyed. Young and old, but I will start with the Elders and then extend to the congregation, so that you will not say ‘I am a preacher’ or ‘I am this and that, ‘I am an Apostle’ for God is not asking you what you are.”
6.              God is saying, “Have you received the Holy Seal, have you received the Holy Ghost seal?”
7.              I was coming closer to saying something about it when the Lord halted it. Moreover, that everlasting seal, I will continue with it anytime I get home, the Lord willing.
8.              Now you know from the New Testament and the Old Testament that God’s own judgment which He is saying must come, and is about to come; will start among God’s own people, and will start in His holy sanctuary. What manner of people are we supposed to be? You see why I am saying that we are now looking inwards for I am not talking outside.
9.              It is just like a family meeting using a small still voice in the language and level where everybody will understand, so that nobody will be left out. What am I doing? I am putting final touches in all the Churches. I am washing off my hands once and for all so that if you close your eyes and storm into Hellfire, you blame yourself.
10.           It is all over! It is finished! Saint Paul announced the end of his ministry. He said, “I have kept the Faith, I have fought the good fight.” He said clearly that already the Lord has revealed to him that shortly he will leave this planet.
11.           Saint Peter equally told the whole world about the end of his ministry and declared it that shortly he will leave this tabernacle also. Knowing that to be truth, he did not disturb anybody to believe his word because you are the people that will judge the people of the world.
12.           If the saints will judge the world, will you be guilty and condemn somebody? You will first of all be declared not guilty, that judgment will finish with you first, then you have the boldness to judge people outside. You cannot be in this Church as an unbeliever and be saying, “Thus the saints will judge the world.” Are you a saint?
13.           I am telling you that the only way you can be a saint and escape from what is about to take place is, continuing in preserving your most holy Faith. How? By paying every heed to the words of the Prophets and Apostles.
14.           Isaiah 33 verse 22, “For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.” KJV.
15.            Ecclesiastics 3 verse 1-4, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
16.           A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.” KJV.
17.           It says that there is time for everything. There is a time for sowing, there is a time for reaping. God will not continue to sow the seed from January to December. He must save out time for harvest. Hence, we cannot continue preaching and preaching, going to places with every amount of message and so on; then that will be endlessly.
18.           There must be a time God must come to harvest the Earth. What is more, the Earth is ripe to be harvested. Somebody had already seen it in a vision, clearly written: “Christ Harvest”. Another person saw it as: The end, the end, the end.
19.           In addition, it was rolling from one end of the Earth to another end, with the word “The end, the end, the end.” And then something followed thus, “Christ Harvest.”
20.           WHO WILL NOT BELIEVE IT? IT IS SCRIPTURE. WE HAVE COME TO THE END OF THE JOURNEY. AS A WATCHMAN OVER YOU, I AM SHOUTING IT. I KEEP ON SHOUTING IT WHEREVER I GO: GET READY FOR YOUR DEPARTURE.
21.           Everyday get ready, prepare to meet your Savior, and prepare to meet your Lord for it is sooner than we think. I am not crying wolf where there is no wolf. Disburden yourself of anything that will wear you down. If you have been sinning, stop sinning from now. Amend your ways before it will be too late. Otherwise you must surely stand and say “Had I Known”.
22.           Amend your ways before it is too late. If there is anything you do not believe, tell us why you do not believe it. Anything we preach which you said that you do not believe, make us know why you do not believe. Peradventure, there might be a remedy.
23.           2 Corinthians chapter 5 verse 9-10, “Wherefore we labor, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
24.           10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” KJV.
25.           Every man must receive his reward for everything you have done here on Earth. God is going to try many things. Whatever you have done in this flesh, or in this life, you will say the reason why you have done it whether good or bad. God will judge all your behaviors for Him to know if you are the person that goes from house to house devouring one another, challenging authority and being stubborn.
26.           You have been doing good, in fact, whatever you are doing, God said that He is going to judge you. You must tell God why you have done every good thing you have done. You must tell God why you have done every bad thing you have done.
27.           Are we not in trouble? If you have done it to please man, so that ministers will clap hands for you, God will find out. If you have also done it to please Almighty God, He knows.
28.           Ecclesiastics 12 verse 14, “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether be evil” KJV.
29.           God is about to bring every work of mankind into judgment, and every secret thing you have done, every secret offender, God must judge whether good or bad. You see why we keep on warning everybody, keep away from every secret thing for God hates it. Anything that you cannot do openly please do not do it. For the Bible said that whomever that does anything bad, hides so that people would not see him. God said that we should no longer fool ourselves.
30.           Remember I told you that the number one sin which God hates is “commit and hide”. The number one evidence of willful sin, deliberate sin is “commit and hide”. You do it, you hide it craftily. Who are you cheating? Who will suffer at last? You are the one that will regret your action. You are the person that will regret your action. By and by somebody must say “Had I Known”.
31.           Who will make the regrettable remark? It is one that has the opportunity to repent and make all wrongs right. You are given the opportunity to raise alarm and shout like Saint Paul that said, “Who will deliver us from this death?”Then you decide to die in silence thinking that you have escaped. Do not worry your eyes will open.  You will know that Satan has pulled you to the core.
32.            What is my target? I want to see every brother, every Sister as a recommendation letter of the Apostolic Ministry. For your life introduces the type of person you are. You do not need any other introductory note to say, “Please receive this man, he is my brother.” No.
33.           2 Corinthians 3 verse 1-6, “Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?
34.           Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.
35.           And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;
36.           Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.” KJV.
37.           I want you to be a genuine brother, a genuine sister. I want you to be a product of apostolic ministry.
38.           Are we starting to commend ourselves again? Or we do not, like some [false teachers], need written credentials [or] letters of recommendation to you or from you, [do we]? [No] you yourselves are letter of recommendation (our credentials), written in your hearts, to be known (perceived, recognized) and read by everybody. You show and make obvious that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, not written with ink but with the [spirit of the] living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. Such is reliance and confidence that we have through Christ toward [and to reference to God.
39.           Not that we are fit, [qualified and sufficient in ability]  of ourselves to form personal judgments [or] count anything as coming from us, but our power {and} ability {and} sufficiency are from God. It is He who has qualified us [making us to be fit and worthy and sufficient] as ministers and dispensers of a new covenant of salvation through Christ], not [ministers of the letter (of legally written code) but of the spirit; for the code of the law kills, but the Holy Spirit makes alive. AMP. 
40.           How I wish all of us are learned enough to understand what the Lord is saying. There is one message I preached which says: “Make Sure That You Do Not Carry your Bible and go into Hellfire.”
41.           No matter how we preach, somebody must reject it; somebody must carry the Bible and go to Hellfire. However, let it not be found among the elect for that is my prayer. Let it not be found among the Bride. May we be among the people that will carry the Bible and go to Heaven. We do not follow the letters of the Law rather we follow the Spirit of the Law.
42.           The spirit gives life but the letter killeth. That is why in the house of God we do not give any room for “do not touch,” do not do this or that for your righteousness. Is not achieved by the Law. It is Christ in you that do everything.
43.           In our fellowship, it is in Christ, our holiness, it is in Christ, our righteousness is in Christ, and what is Christ? The Word. If we are ever mindful of the words that have been spoken to us by God’s servants the Apostles and Prophets, it will be all well with us.
44.           I would always be pointing you to the words that are spoken by God’s approved ministers of the New Covenant. We are blessed with able ministers of the New Covenant, that ministers to us the Spirit of the Word. They minister to us the life of the Word.  If we fail, we blame ourselves.
45.           Take note of these scriptures: Romans 5 verse 15-21, Galatians chapter 4 verse 19, 2 Corinthian 11 verse 2, Colossians chapter 1 verse 15-29 and finally Ephesians 3 verse 1-13. Amen.

PONDER ON YOUR WAYS
Everything must go according to the Will of God. If you are wise, the way things are going, you should know that the whole thing has finished. You can see Daddy talking and consoling his children, giving them His last words before He leaves them.
2.              Nevertheless, the question is not hearing these words but the ability to take these words the way they are spoken to our minds. That is why He talked to us by putting us in remembrance.
3.              It is the divine will of God that we had this privilege. I used to tell some people that in the army, there are little gun men that if you despise their instructions, you are in trouble. (by Bishop Okey Paul). 
4.              If you watch the way the Bishop’s message went forth, you will see a very big difference between the Bishop’s ministry, the Pastoral ministry and the apostolic ministry. You will see just purely administrative ministry. The Lord knew when our brother’s ministry as a Pastor was over and then He shoot him up to a higher office. He has saved me the trouble I thought I would speak to the ministers after, the Holy Ghost inspired him to do the work which I said I will do after. God bless you sir! You have saved me a lot of trouble.
5.              Because I am aware that the problem is not only with the congregation, but there is a problem in the ministerial part and the Holy Ghost has come straight to the root of that problem.
6.              It went as far as extending it to Dadinkowa which was what I placed as number one thing I will do; to separate Dadinkowa Church from the Church at Jos so that Brother Andrew, Brother Wale and some other Elders there will start seeing that Church from its original setting.
7.              The day I confirmed that Church, I never made any mistake saying that it is the Church at Dadinkowa and Jos. Brethren it is very clear. I have the tapes of the things I warned you of. For the Holy Ghost said that the Church should be known, addressed and recognized as the Church at Dadinkowa and it is purely independent in its local setup.
8.              That if you have any problem, because we have Elders in the Church at Jos who have been in the Faith right from the beginning; instead of traveling to Onitsha to consult Me, go to the Church at Jos. The same advice I will give you is the same advice they will give you. Nevertheless, if they advise you to come to Onitsha, then come to Onitsha.  
9.              I thank God for what He is doing. You see, I told my Pastor that I would like to go to Jos and pay them a surprise visit on Tuesday. Ahead of time I went to him, if he did not want me to travel, he will say no for there is no way I can travel without my Pastor’s approval. After all, if I did not seek his approval who then sends me out?
10.           Because every minister that goes out goes in the name of the Church. If the Pastor sends you out, anything you commit there, will go back to the Church. Even if I am a millionaire, I cannot say because there is money in my pocket, after all it is not the Church that is giving me the money, let me go out. No, it is breaking the order of the Church. Ministers are you taking note?
11.           You do that it is breaking the order of the Church. We are not in the End-time Message as we have heard it whereby a minister will run from one Local Assembly to the other to ask whether there is a problem: “I have come, is there any problem?” Are you a problem solver?
12.           If there is a problem, the Pastor of that local Church will handle it, but if he cannot solve it, he can now bring it out. Until you are invited, until you are informed, you do not have any right to go from Church to Church asking them whether they have problem.
13.           So far, the Teacher has opened the gate, I do not think I will go back to this jotter. If you want to strangle Me, strangle Me, then my blood will be upon your head and the head of your children forever and ever.
14.           I am not afraid of who will kill Me but you are too young to bear my loss. No matter how you pray God to take Me away from this Earth, I am certain that if I am taken away now, many of you will not be believers again. That my departure may bring the end of some people in this Church.
15.           I know that my departure may even be the end of so many. Even among my co-ministers, there are people that cannot bear it for I am certain about it.
16.           Thus, while I am still in this flesh, I am still appreciative because it is for the good of us all and for the sake of this Gospel. If you were deceived; what is given to you, you have been privileged to test it. God has given you a lot of opportunity to test it. What have you discovered?
17.           It is cutting, it is slicing. What have you discovered? With it you bind all the things hand and feet together, then close their mouth. You go out with it faithfully in righteousness.
18.           Remember it was handed over to you in righteousness and also hold it in righteousness it will remain effective. However, when you hold it in unrighteousness, you make it of non-effect.
19.           What have you discovered? The moment you go out, you are going out as a warrior and you are conquering, and conquering and conquering. Nobody has ever come to the Apostle (Son of Man) and said, “Apostle, I hold masters decree, now ask me questions and I will answer.”
20.           Nobody has ever done it. Rather they are coming to Me with edifying testimonies. Because they said that I have educated everybody for wherever they go out to preach, this Faith is not End-time or Pentecostal, it is a Faith that if you go out to preach, you do not know the first question that will come to you.
21.           You may have something you want to preach but the questions that will come will be different from what you are preaching. The person may like to ask you something on marriage, then you will leave whatever you are preaching and go to marriage, and settle that one.
22.           Then the man will say, “Ok, I want to ask you another one,” it can be on law or on lordship. Note, the only way forward is for you to clear all question, so that when you continue in your message the people will now bow down. Anybody that fails to bow down to that message is a beast. Anybody that has a little attribute of life must surely bow down to your message.
23.           What am I saying? The highest theologian on the land, let him come out, a sister in this Faith will beat that man hands down. If somebody says that you are deceived, thank God that Bible has deceived you. I love this type of deceit. God, deceive me the more.
24.           Let us come back and ponder on our ways. Let us not succeed in saving others and we ourselves perish, we that are going about propagating this Faith.  
25.           Let me tell you, you do not know what this Faith has done. William Branham that is making a lot of noise in End-time message, while he was on the land, none of his messages went into print, there was no book printed while William Branham was alive, it was after his departure that Ewald Frank started arranging his messages and started to transcribed it into book form.
26.           Not a single message was printed when William Branham was alive.   However, I thank God that this Faith is not End-time Message because there is no other time the elects will start coming back if not now that we are winding it up.
27.           If I say Onitsha Church, it does not mean that Onitsha Church is the Church of the Apostle (Son of Man), that it is my Church-home, it does not make Me the overseer of this Church. Rather I am in the Church overseeing other local Churches including that one also.
28.           There is no local Church that can claim ownership of the Apostle. Every local Church has equal right with Onitsha. The whole local Churches do not have equal rights over Brother Kelechi, the apostle. Somebody did not get it.
29.           Onitsha Church never had an apostle until Brother Kelechi was ordained apostle. Brother Kelechi is an apostle in a local Church but I am not an Apostle in a local Church. The right you have over Me is the same equal right Onitsha Church has over Me.
30.           Furthermore, the same equal right Onitsha Church has over Me is the same equal right other local Churches have over Me. There was no local Church that has the ownership of the Apostle (that is, the Son of Man).
31.           When you mention Colossians, Philippians, Ephesians, all of them, they have equal rights over Paul but in the Corinthian Church, they had their own apostles. Ephesians Church had their own Apostles, but Saint Paul was an overseeing Apostle.
32.           If I lay hand on a man, on a Brother, one of you and commission him with what I am, you will see him from that angle for whatever I do, that he must do. You do not need to query him or challenge his authority. I
33.            want all the ministers to remain in their duty positions. The Teacher should remain a Teacher, Pastor remain Pastor and Evangelist being Evangelist. Do not leave your duty for it does not help. Rather it causes confusion and brings unnecessary clashes—clashes in administration.
34.            In the ministry of Christ, no matter the amount of revelation from Paul the Apostle, he was also equal with other Apostles. No matter how Jesus Christ said it that “I have given you a gift, Peter feed my flock, Peter was not exalted more than any other Apostle.
35.           That is where I said, “God, bless the Church at Onitsha.” if you want to know what I am saying, come and stay in the Church at Onitsha and watch all the ministers, watch the operation. That is how it should be in all the Churches. Anything contrary to that is of the Devil.
36.           When you are walking that way, then it will be easy to identify when Satan has crept in. Then you will identify when a Brother has said something contrary and you find out his motive, then you can put him back to the line.
37.           Thus, Brother Andrew and co, I have to say it for the first time concerning that hard truth which you went into translating. When I heard about it, I remember that there was a time our Brother Pastor Joseph wanted to preach on that, when he came to Onitsha on a missionary trip.
38.           I said, “Well, we do not need to give you money concerning ‘The Last Trumpet,’ since you have already embarked on a project that will take a lot of money from you. Whatever you have, use it to sponsor it.”
39.           Brethren from Onitsha kept on asking Me about the translation and I said, “Well, I am watching, I am waiting because I talk to you on this that whatever I teach in Jerusalem is what I teach in all the local Churches.” Besides, not all the Churches will be patient on every matter and watch, because time is the greatest solution to every problem. And time vindicates all things.
40.           I am not quick in calling anything God or Devil. There is a big eye around, looking at something somewhere. Before you know it, you are already swearing. This is a very big problem in this Church.  Brother Thomas, it is a problem to you. Let Me help you now.
41.           The number one place God uses to encourage a man is through the thoughts of his heart. The number one step Satan takes in coming into a man is through the thoughts of his heart.
42.           NUMBER ONE STEP GOD WILL MAKE IN COMING INTO YOUR LIFE IS THROUGH YOUR THOUGHTS. NUMBER ONE STEP SATAN WILL MAKE IN COMING INTO YOUR LIFE IS THROUGH THE THOUGHTS OF YOUR HEART.
43.           Pray that the Holy Ghost will explain it more. Satan can never come in until you wander out. All the sins you are committing, that is making you starchy, you do not commit them inside. You jump from the Camp, and you live with Satan outside. When you are in the Camp, you are secured, but outside the Camp, you are not secured. However, the Camp I mean is not the fellowship building. I mean the Camp of your heart.
44.           The moment your heart wanders away from the truth, wanders away from what is right, what is good, what is proper, you will be wandering from one evil thing to another evil thing. While in the Church, your hand will be holding the Bible. The jotter is in your hand, the Bible is open, but your eyes are somewhere.
45.           Some stay in the Church and yet, they are dreaming. Stay in the Church, the Minister is preaching, yet they are dreaming in the Church. Yet that person is waiting for Rapture.
46.           You are waiting for rapture, what type of Rapture are you waiting for? Which rapture? If it is the one I am waiting for, I doubt it. Anybody that is waiting for the one I am waiting for, number one, He is never tired, number two nothing distracts his attention. Nothing will ever make you sleep when a Minister is in this pulpit, until you wander away.
47.           The moment you wander away, you see yourself sleeping. When somebody comes and shakes you, then you come back again. You are sleeping in the spirit but then your eyes are still open. Then, a little while, you hear something: “Amen, Amen. That’s true, that’s true”.
48.           What is true? You heard “God is Devil.” You say, “Amen, it is truth”. Is God Devil? Because you woke up from sleep and then God is now Devil. You did not hear the whole statement and you said, “Amen, it is true!”
49.           When you know where the Messages are coming from, happy are you. Then you will be in the right position to take it for your own good. No Minister hates you. What is he hating you for? Are you quarrelling?
50.           I hate to hear such statements: “I do not know why this Brother does not like my face”. What is in your face? If brother sees devil on your face, he will not like it. Brother wants to see Christ and then he will admire Christ.
51.           Many of you are trying to put devil on your faces and want Brother to clap hands. I am telling you the truth. You know many of you are possessed with the Devil. It is very prominent amongst the Sisters—very, very prominent among them.
52.           You say, “Brethren, it is all over for today, we have dismissed for fellowship.” You see all of them going their individual ways, going out. You can hardly see a sister that will behold you as a sister, embrace you and say, “God Bless you sir.” You can hardly get one.
53.           Any woman that is saved in this generation might be the luckiest.  Any woman you see in this nation is the luckiest. The greatest hypocrisy is among the women. Hypocrites! You have become believers now because I am in the Church, because I am on the scene.
54.           If God will open your hearts and show you what is there now, people will run away. All kinds of bitterness, hatred, they are all many in there in your hearts. They are many in your lives. Everyone has one thing or the other against this one, while this one has something against that one.
55.           Sister Grace, sighing is not the problem. You are even a problem to yourself. Your number one problem is that you do not forgive yourself. Because you do not forgive yourself, you find it difficult to forgive others. What will it produce? You will always be feeling cheated. Always feeling cheated. It is not a good thing.
56. On this note, I say remain in your sanctified estate, remain blessed in Him eternally. Amen.
