THREE KINDS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS



Preached on 14th October 2012 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA
A BOOK IN THE DAYS OF THE SON OF MAN “Truth has no substitute” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

I am your Saviour. I am here to tell you things you do to get eternal life. Without me, there is no salvation; without me, there is no eternal life. Believe it if you can…
 -The Son of Man

FROM: RE-EXAMINE YOUR FAITH, PAGE 3.

He that must come to God must first believe that He is, and He exists. Is it not Scripture? Now, to you claiming to be Son of Man’s disciple, have you settled this controversy in your own heart as a Brother, as a Sister? Because it is upon the settlement of this controversy (believing that God is a Man), your covenant is sealed. That is where your salvation lies. That is your eternal security (remember that there is a big difference between eternal security and social security).
This teaching is not meant for everybody. It is only for those that are in this Faith; for God said that He will no longer tolerate people that are in our midst half-heartedly. The real children reach agreement with God here.
This is your reward. So, if you do not know the “point” where you are saved, I have revealed it to you now. If you do not know where your righteousness lies, I have revealed your righteousness.
The righteousness of God is “revealed” from generation to generation to those that fear and honour the Lord. The righteousness of God is not “attained,” it is “revealed.” Unless it is revealed, you will not work towards it. God will not save you because of what you have done, but because of what you have believed. 
–the Son of Man.

THREE TYPES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

BY
APOSTLE KELECHI UWAKWE

1
THREE TYPES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
Deuteronomy chapter 6 verses 6-9, “And you must think constantly about these commandments I am giving you today. You must teach them to your children and talk about them when you are at home or out at walk; at bedtime and the first thing in the morning. Tie them on your finger, wear them on your forehead, and write them on the doorpost of your house. LB.
2.           Do you see what God said that you must do? He told them in the time of Moses that whatever they saw with their eyes, the evidences that appeared before them, the teachings that they received, that they should write them on their doorpost, write them on the door of their houses, wear them on their heads, teach it to their children in the morning and in the evening, so that they will never forget what their eyes have seen and what their ears have heard—that these evidences really happened before their eyes.
3.           Deuteronomy 11 verses 18-20, “So keep these commandments carefully in mind. Tie them in your hand to remind you to obey them, and tie them in your forehead between your eyes!
4.           Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are sitting down at home…”
5.           That is, you should talk about these supernatural evidences when you are sitting down at home with your children. Did He say that you should talk about any other thing? No! You talk about these supernatural evidences, the Presence of the Elohim in our own day. For that will make you to grow spiritually, that will make you not to forget His Presence.
6.           “…When you are out walking, at bedtime, and before breakfast…”
7.           That is why we have morning altar in the morning. When you wake up in the morning, you rehearse all the Presence of God, what He has manifested before your eyes. You explain them one after the other to your children, telling them the reality of it. You know that children put trust on their parents. When you tell your child about the reality of the Presence of the supernatural being, how He manifested in our midst as well as the vessel He tabernacle in, they will never forget it.
8.           In the morning while our Teacher was talking to us, He said that “I will set my tabernacle among you. Tell your children about these things. It makes me happy that in my own day, that I was privileged to see this great God which the whole world has been clamoring to see.
9.           Do you know what it is? The whole world has been trying to see this God but He hid Himself away and revealed Himself to us. Who can believe our report? If you tell them that these things happened physically before us, it will be hard for them to believe.
10.        “…Write them upon the doors of your houses and upon your gates…”
11.        If you say that we are deceiving you, God told us in the scriptures where we read when we went for the burial at Abaomege, He said that the soul of a man is so important that you cannot use the material things of the world to redeem it. There is nothing in the world that you can use to redeem the soul of a man.
12.        Furthermore, God knowing it, He committed the word of eternal life in the hands of the Son of Man so that we will be the only people that will be redeemed by His word. You see why you have to take this ministry seriously!
13.        We thank God for what He is doing in our midst. We are grateful to Him. He is doing all these things for us to confide in Him more and more; for that is why He said, “Inasmuch as you have believed that I am He, I will reveal to you all my supernatural attributes.”
14.        That is what Moses demanded from the Lord, and the Lord told him, “Go and I will be with you!” In the time of Philip, He told Nathaniel, “Let us continue going, you will see greater things that will happen.” What is more, we have seen greater things. We are very grateful to God.
15.        Romans chapter 10 verses 1-4, “Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
16.        For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
17.        For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
18.        For Christ is the end of the Law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” KJV.
19.        Mark chapter 7 verses 1-13, “Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem. And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.
20.        For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders. And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brazen vessels, and of tables.
21.        Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands? He answered and said unto them, Well hath Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoreth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
22.        How be it in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
23.        And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. For Moses said, Honor thy father and thy mother; and, whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
24.        But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free .
25.        And ye suffer him no more to do aught for his father or his mother; Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.” KJV.   
26.        Note, we are talking about the three types of righteousness! These are the problems of the world. Everybody wants to please God; every group wants to please God. Every group wants to do one thing or the other that will make them to be acceptable unto God. The two places we read, Romans 10:1-4 and Mark 7:1-13 contain the most important thing people are desiring to do. The two places identified different kinds of righteousness.
27.        Watch, a rich man, a Jew came to Jesus the Christ and said, “Master, what must I do to enter the Kingdom of God or have eternal life?” Jesus answered and say unto him, “Don’t you know what is written in the Law? The man asked Him, “What is that?” Jesus said to him, “You must be upright, obeying those rules.”
28.        We have CHURCH RIGHTEOUSNESS, which was what we could see in Mark chapter 7 verses 1 where the scriptures said that the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the scribes and the Jewish religious leaders always carry out the traditions of their fathers, such as washing of the pot, washing of the hands and so many of those things which they observe as their own righteousness. In so doing they neglected the righteousness of God.
29.        I was talking to one young man and he said to me, “Ejima, let me tell you, there is only one thing that is disturbing me and if not that thing, I must enter Heaven.” I asked him, “What is that thing?”
30.        He said that “as a young man, that he keeps himself away from everything but women, for that is the only thing holding me”. I said, “Ok, that is self-righteousness. Keep on holding it. That thing is pulling you back every time!” He said yes. I said, “keep on.” But that is not the way God justifies people.
31.        Now, you see that the Pharisees have their own Church-righteousness; they have their own self-righteousness by being good enough without trouble, without disturbing anybody and those things made them to be ignorant of the righteousness of God. And this ignorance of God’s own righteousness made human beings to go ahead establishing their own self-righteousness.
32.        God predicted about His own righteousness that will be revealed in the day that will be coming and that is in our own day. Besides, why people get ignorant is because they do not pay attention to the words of prophecy of the Prophets concerning the righteousness of God.
33.        Isaiah chapter 45 verses 24, “Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.” KJV.
34.        Now, one will say THAT IN THE LORD I HAVE MY RIGHTEOUSNESS. This is a Prophetic word spoken by Isaiah. Isaiah prophesied ahead of time in the days of the Prophets, telling them that the righteousness of any human being must come from God. However, they fail to pay attention to that righteousness.
35.        What is more, I want you to know that all the efforts of human beings, all their righteousness, God summed them up in one thing.
36.        Let us see how God sees human righteousness, that is human effort. In Isaiah 64 verses 6-7: “We are all infected and impure with sin, when we put on all our fine cloths we see that we are filthy rag. LB.
37.        You see, when we put on all our fine cloth, all our effort as we dictate for ourselves, God said that it is a filthy rag. Prophecy of the righteousness revealed in our own day.
38.        Isaiah 48 verses 16-18. Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord GOD, and his Spirit, hath sent me.
39.        Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea.” KJV.
40.         Come closer, and listen to this. From the beginning I have told you plainly what would happen.”And now the Sovereign Lord and his Spirit have sent me with this message.
41.        This is what the Lord says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:“I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow,  Oh, that you had listened to my commands! Then you would have had peace flowing like a gentle river and righteousness rolling over you like waves in the sea. GNB.
42.        Obeying the word of God brings righteousness. Remember we are talking about the three kinds of righteousness. There is no group on Earth that does not have articles of what they believe. Is that not true? They have articles, codes, what you will do and you will be right in the eyes of the Church. Moreover, once you go contrary to those articles, to them you are a sinner. We have as well, self-righteousness.
43.        Self-righteousness is one that does not obey God’s word, he does not go to Church. When you preach to him, he will say, “I do not kill. I do not hate anybody. I do not do this and that.” That self-righteousness has nothing to do with salvation.
44.        That is why to us the children of God, God enjoined us to know that He justified us in the spirit, not in the flesh. Watch all the rules and regulations of all the Churches, they all ends in the flesh. It has nothing to do with the spirit, that is why the Pharisees came to Jesus and said, “Why is it that your disciples do not wash their hands before they eat, thereby defiling themselves?” You see self-righteousness, Church righteousness.”
45.        You defile yourself with what you eat, you defile yourself with what you handle, and you defile yourself by greeting a harlot and armed robbers. That is why they told Jesus when Mary Magdalene came to Jesus the Christ and was crying and weeping, they stood at the corner and said, “If this man is really a Prophet and a man of God, which he claims to be, he would have known the manner of woman that is touching Him.”
46.        Watch, Jesus turned to the guest of the house and said, “Simon,” and he answered. Jesus said, “Since I came into your house, you have not given me a cup of water to wash my feet but this woman, since I came here, she has not ceased to use her hair to clean my feet, she used the costliest oil to anoint me. So, I say unto you that her sins that are many, I have forgiven her.”
47.        As long as this Bridal Faith is concerned, you must know very well that if you depend on the rules and regulations outside the word of God, your sins remaineth in you. Obedience to the word of God is righteousness. In addition, Saint Paul described it very well, that he was so desirous about the Jews that they must be saved, but they are ignorant of the righteousness of God.
48.        You can be ignorant of God’s righteousness. That is why ignorance is not an excuse when you break the Laws of God. Being ignorant of God’s righteousness, they went about establishing their own self-righteousness by obeying the Laws of the Jews. They refused submitting themselves to the righteousness of God, which is faith in Christ. amen.

GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS IS REVEALED AND NOT ATTAINED

BY
APOSTLE KELECHI UWAKWE

GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS IS REVEALED AND NOT ATTAINED
In all the ages, God’s righteousness has been a man. Without a man appearing, you cannot have the righteousness of God in your day.
2.           Isaiah chapter 29 verses 13-14, “And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.  
3.           Because of this, I will once again astound these hypocrites with amazing wonders. The wisdom of the wise will pass away, and the intelligence of the intelligent will disappear”. LB.
4.           First Corinthians chapter 1 verses 19-21. Isaiah predicted about the self-righteousness of human beings. What they say that you will do and God will save you, thereby neglecting God’s own righteousness.
5.           “For God says, I will destroy all human plans of righteousness no matter how wise you seem it to be…”
6.           All the plans of human being for salvation, God promised that He will destroy all because they were ignorant of God’s own righteousness. Has it not come to pass? Is what is happening in our midst not contrary to our expectation?
7.           “…And ignore the best ideas of men…”
8.            You know, the world has their best ideas. All these denominations, their ideas, their efforts are to make sure that you live as an upright man, upright woman: do not defile yourself, do not do this, do not do that. All their wisest plans, God promised to destroy all of them, and make them to be useless-nonsense because of being ignorant of His (God’s) own righteousness.
9.           “…Even the most brilliant of them. So, what about these wise men, these scholars, these brilliant debaters of this world great affair? God has made them all look foolish and shown their wisdom to be useless nonsense. for God in His wisdom saw to it that the world will never find God through human brilliance.”
10.        God knew ahead of time that the world will not know Him through human brilliance, through human wisdom, through intellectual conception of what God looks like and what you will do to please God.
11.        They will read the scripture which says that God is of a purer eye than to behold iniquity what and what are these iniquities? They refer them as the weaknesses of the flesh. They do not know what iniquity is.
12.        They cannot obey the word of God revealed in their day, for God’s righteousness is revealed. If God does not reveal His righteousness in your day, you cannot receive it. Note, you do not attain God’s righteousness, rather God inputs righteousness on you.
13.        “…For God in his wisdom saw to it that the world will never find God through human brilliance, and then He stepped in and save all those who believe in His message which the world called foolish and silly. LB.
14.        Before you know God’s righteousness, before you receive it, it must be revealed to you. If it is not revealed to you, you will continue in yourself righteousness and Church righteousness.
15.        Romans chapter 1 verses 16-17: “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ:  for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith:  as it is written, The just shall live by faith…”
16.        Through the Gospel of Christ, the righteousness of God is revealed from stage to stage. Let me show you what people do.
17.        “Are you a Churchgoer or a True Worshipper of God?” page 33 verse 1, “
18.        The righteousness of a child of God lies in his obedience to the Word of God. His uttermost concern is his relationship with God, nothing else. Anytime his conscience convicts him of iniquity before God, he loses his peace of mind until he has made it right.
19.        God speaks to every seed of His; each time, God will come to him; warn him and tell him what He wants him to know. God can speak to him through dream or audible Voice. He will hear it very audibly as if somebody is there speaking with him.
20.        When he gets up, he will see nobody. But nothing speaks to a non-seed of God whether he does good or bad. His eyes and mind are fixed at that which he wants to achieve. He has no adviser, always alone on his own. They often get trapped and fall into great troubles.
21.        A churchgoer thinks that his righteousness is based on his contributions for burial, for the needy etc…”
22.        He will like to sweep the fellowship hall, clear the bushes, pay his tithe and offerings, and to contribute for “who knows tomorrow.” That is why you will always hear them say, “This man always goes to Church very well. He is a good worshipper in a Church.” He will belong to all the groups in the congregation. That is Church righteousness which God called filthy rags. The word of God is not there to check their disobedience to God’s word.
23.        “...he will make sure that his name is clearly written down. He attends every general work in the Church premises. These are good and commendable, but he is doing his supposed duty in the Church, that’s a churchgoer.
24.        However, when it comes to obeying the  Message, he or she scores zero. If your actions are not directed by the Word of God in any group you find yourself, if your purpose of doing anything is not in obedience to the Word of God, you are a churchgoer.
25.        Every action of a seed of God is directed by the Word of God. He does not want to walk in disobedience. The Message or Teaching of God is the spirit of God. But a churchgoer only walks by sentiments; he does not want voices to roar on his head. He does not want his name to be mentioned, secondly, he wants to be seen and recognised. Consider what is the motivating factor behind your actions in any congregation you find yourself.
26.        Anybody being moved by the Spirit of God to do anything in the Church does not go on strike, but one who is seeking attention, seeking to please human beings, any day you offend him, he will embark on strike action. Anyone working for God does not demonstrate or go on strike action, but one seeking human praise soon goes on demonstration, if his efforts are not recognised...”
27.        Check yourself in this Bridal Ministry; three kinds of righteousness. Your own self-righteousness and the Church righteousness; but what about God’s own righteousness that is revealed from faith to faith?
28.        Genesis chapter 17 verse 1, “When Abram was ninety-nine years old, God appeared to him and told him, ‘I am the Almighty. Obey me and live as you should.’” LB.
29.        God appeared to Abraham at the age of ninety-nine years, and say to him, “Abraham, I am Almighty God; obey me and live as you should.” What is more, God was telling the people of Israel saying, “When I brought your ancestors out from the land of Egypt, I did not give them any Law about sacrifice. The only Law I gave them was ‘hear my word and obey.’”
30.        That was why Abraham was able to obey God by faith. One morning, God will come to Abraham and tell him, “Abraham, stand up and do this for me”. The instruction that He will give Abraham today may not be the one that He will give Abraham tomorrow.
31.        That is how the righteousness of God is revealed. Not taking you on particular thing. That we are alive today in this Bridal Ministry is because we obey God on daily basis concerning any instruction given to us.
32.        Watch out for those dogs, those people who do evil, those mutilators who say you must be circumcised to be saved,  you see, having conditions for salvation. For we who worship by the Spirit of God are the ones who are truly circumcised. We rely on what Christ Jesus has done for us. We put no confidence in human effort.
33.        We, the children of God, glory in what Christ has done for us and we know very well that we cannot help ourselves as far as righteousness in the sight of God is concerned.
34.        Isaiah chapter 51 verses 5-7, “My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.
35.        Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be forever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished…”
36.        My righteousness shall not be abolished. God’s righteousness shall not be abolished. There in Philippians, you will see how God prophesied about His righteousness that is coming, that is very near, that cannot be abolished. A righteousness coming to replace the so-called self and Church righteousness of the world.
37.        No wonder the Prophet was predicting about this righteousness, they were thinking that it will happen in their day, but God said no, it is not you. Then they started asking, peeping to know what manner of people that will be on Earth when this righteousness of God would be made known to them.
38.        If you have any reason that you will be saved, Paul said that I am the one that can boast of saving myself.
39.        “…If others can be saved by what they are, certainly I could…” If others can be saved by what they are, by their achievements, I Paul will be saved like that also.
40.        “…For I went through the Jewish initiations when I was eight days old. Having been born into a pure Jewish blooded home that was a branch of the old original Benjamin family…”
41.        If you talk about the tribe that Paul came from, he was a Benjamite, from where the scepter cannot be departed.
42.        “…So, I was a real Jew if there ever was one. Once more I was a member of the Pharisees who demanded the strictest obedience to every Jewish Law and custom…”
43.        The scripture said that Christ is the end of the Law and the Prophets. Any age where Christ is not revealed, no soul will be saved in that age. I do not mean Jesus. I am talking about Christ. In the days of the Prophets, they had the spirit of Christ in them.
44.        First Peter chapter 1 verses 10, “Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
45.        Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.”
46.        Do you see why we say that the Prophets of old had Christ in them? In any age where Christ is not revealed, no soul will be counted as a righteous soul, as worthy in the sight of God. If you keep on calling Jesus, you would not know that Jesus has finished his work of salvation. If the salvation plan has been completed, why is the world still remaining till today? The scriptures said that He came and paved way.
47.        Those that died after God gave Moses the Laws, they did not die because of disobeying the rules and regulations, for God was looking forward to the day when Christ will die and forgive their sins. And to us, when we appeared after the death of Jesus, we were forgiven our sins based on our faith in Christ. That is our righteousness.
48.        Preach whatever you want to preach, jump up and down, claim to be a member of the bride of Christ ministry where the Elohim has manifested Himself in the person of Apostle Peter Odoemena, and if you do not obey His Word, you are not counted righteous in His sight.
49.        That I am a Bishop, I am an Apostle, or this and that has nothing to do with my salvation. Thus, this Presence of God proves to us that we are not following cunningly devised fables.  
50.        “…Though I could have confidence in my own effort if anyone could. Indeed, if others have reason for confidence in their own efforts, I have even more! I was circumcised when I was eight days old. I am a pure-blooded citizen of Israel and a member of the tribe of Benjamin—a real Hebrew if there ever was one!
51.         I was a member of the Pharisees, who demand the strictest obedience to the Jewish Law. I was so zealous that I harshly persecuted the Church. And as for righteousness, I obeyed the Law without fault.  I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done.  Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the Law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ.
52.        For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.  I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death.” LB.
53.        Concerning the persecution of the Church, touching the righteousness which is in the Lord.
54.        Acts chapter 22 verses 1-3,  Men, brethren, and fathers, hear ye my defense which I make now unto you. (And when they heard that he spake in the Hebrew tongue to them, they kept the more silence: and he saith,)
55.        I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day.” KJV.
56.        Brothers and esteemed fathers,  listen to me as I offer my defense.” When they heard him speaking in Hebrew, the silence was even greater. Then Paul said, “I am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, and I was brought up and educated here in Jerusalem under Gamaliel.
57.        As his student, I was carefully trained in our Jewish Laws and customs. I became very zealous to honor God in everything I did, just like all of you today.” LB.
58.        I became very anxious to honor God in everything I do. We are talking about self-righteousness and Church-righteousness. Paul was talking to them, telling them what he did. He pinned his hope in every Law, he said that he was brought up in Jerusalem and educated under Gamaliel, the highest theological school of that day. That was the perfect way of obeying the Laws of their fathers, for the Pharisees demanded the strictness of the Laws.
59.        Verse 12-16 of Acts 22, And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews which dwelt there, Came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him.
60.        And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth.
61.        For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard. And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.” KJV.
62.        This was when he was converted.  Someone must lead you to Christ. In your own day without meeting Christ, you forget about eternal life. For Christ has been God’s own righteousness.
63.        Jeremiah chapter 23 verses 5-6, “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
64.        In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS”.
65.        God promised to bring His righteousness. We have seen that God’s righteousness has turned to be a man, and His Name will be THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
66.        We do not live on self-righteousness or Church-righteousness that is filled with dos and don’ts. You may say, “Brother Kelechi, do you mean I can do this or that, I can now behave any way I like?” How can you do as you like? All that served God worked according to the instructions that God has given.
67.        If God has not asked you to do anything, you cannot do it. If a man that met our brother could say that he knows Apostle Peter Odoemena, that he knows His group for one thing, that all that believe in Him cannot do anything without His instruction. The man said, “If Apostle Peter Odoemena commands everybody to go to Building materials and wipe off everybody there, surely I tell you, they will never fear the government or the Police. They will wipe out everybody according to His word.”
68.        We must be very careful about what we say we believe and how we believe it. You can be in our midst,  jump up and down because of the cloud and the Presence of God, but bear in mind that God manifests all these things to His sons and daughters that believe Him. For that becomes their righteousness.
69.        Only facts are convincing page 42 ‘paragraph 1&2’ “You can never misunderstand me until you mix up this faith, which is God’s faith, with your religious belief. Once your religious belief clashes with the teachings you are receiving, you are bound to rebel because a religious man is a rebellious man…”
70.        He will say, “What do you mean? That God will forgive and pardon me like that without doing anything? So you mean that all these things written in the Law, that we will throw them away?” That is religious belief. God said that you are counted justified in the sight of God by your faith in Christ that s revealed in your day.
71.        “…The Church is full of politics and rebellion, and according to history the worst movement with the greatest number of rebellion, revolution and reformation, which has constituted confusion all over the world, is Christianity. And a writer says, ‘It is because it is manmade, it is human oriented, and it is a movement, ‘Believe it if you can.”
72.        Page 77, “Until you attain this height, you are not saved. You must attain the level of performance, whether you like it or not- and you do not need to struggle to get there. This faith comes by hearing this word of God. It comes to you directly, disarming you of all religious credentials and enviable religious track records…
73.        All these religious records were the same thing that Saint Paul had. Jesus the Christ told the Pharisees, “Because of the traditions of your fathers, you lay the word of God aside.” Because of the traditions of their fathers, they lay the word of God aside. That they might obey the tradition of their own fathers thereby making the word of God of non-effect.
74.        Why are we alive till today? It is because we stood our ground to make sure that the word of God might stand firm without adulteration. Any sign of adulteration coming from any corner, the Lord will arrest it and bring it down; because there is nothing that can give you eternal life if not the word. Nothing can make you righteous if not the word, for the scriptures says that God giveth righteousness.
75.        That is why Job said in his day, “If I am righteous, I dare not mention it before God. I will bow my head and close mouth before Him for innocent or guilty in your eyes, God must surely destroy.”
76.        The only people that God will not destroy are those that He has counted righteous in His own eyes. For that was why He told Abraham saying, “Far it be from Me if I should destroy the righteous in the midst of the wicked.” I do not mean a self-righteous man, but one who God has counted righteous in His own sight. God cannot destroy him for He will show him the way out.
77.        Just as we are in this most holy Faith now, any moment from now the wrath of God will descend to the children of disobedience living on Earth and He will hide us in His own place.
78.        Let me tell you, on that Sunday when the message titled, “It Is Finished” was preached, are all of us not in the Church in Jerusalem? Were we not seeing ourselves? Physically we did not know that a Thick Smoke has encircled all of us. And it is that Thick Smoke that encircled all of us that will hide us away from the prying eyes of the enemy.
79.        God allowed us to capture Him with the use of a pinhole camera for the pinhole camera cannot capture anything that is not an object. We are talking about God’s own righteousness.
80.        “…I Do not care how well your charities or kindnesses might be in your religious realm, God is not interested in them. They are abominations in the sight of God.”
81.        “Only Facts are Convincing” page 79, second paragraph, “You must know Christ for it is only in Christ that you can be rest assured that you are saved from the wrath of God. The wrath of God must visit this Earth at the appointed time, whether we like it or not. The Lord must remove all things that cause offence, and institute a reign of righteousness upon the Earth. Your unbelief cannot hinder it.”
82.        Isaiah chapter 46 verses 12-13,  Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness: I bring near my righteousness…”
83.        Note, I bring near my own righteousness. Not your own righteousness that is filthy rag, but the only righteousness that can save and give you eternal life.
84.        “…it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory…” KJV.
85.        I will place my salvation in Zion the Church of the living God. The salvation of God will be placed in Zion the living Church, the first born. You cannot hear God’s righteousness outside Zion. There in the world you can only hear religious righteousness, man’s righteousness.
86.        Isaiah chapter 48 verse 1, “Listen to me, O family of Jacob, you who are called by the name of Israel and born into the family of Judah. Listen, you who take oaths in the name of the Lord and call on the God of Israel.
87.        You don’t keep your promises.” LB.
88.        Hear ye this, O house of Jacob, which are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out of the waters of Judah, which swear by the name of the LORD, and make mention of the God of Israel, but not in truth, nor in righteousness.” KJV.
89.        You see, what a pathetic and pitiful condition it is! People calling upon the God they are worshipping, not in righteousness. But the people there claim to be righteous, the Law is there, they have Prophets there but they fail to hear the words of the Prophets concerning God’s own righteousness. That was why they went about building their own self-righteousness, which is according to the Law.
90.        Psalms chapter 71 verses 15-16, “My mouth shall show forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day;  for I know not the numbers thereof. I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD:  I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.” LB.  
91.        I can never make mention of my own for I do not have any righteousness at all. It was prophesied and predicted that the righteousness of God is coming very close, that it is going to be revealed and WE SAW THE RIGHTEOUSNESS BEING A MAN AND THE MAN IS CHRIST. This was the righteousness that people failed to get; they failed to have the revelation that Christ has been God’s own righteousness to His people.
92.        Acts chapter 13 verses 6-12, “And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus: Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.
93.        But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,
94.        And said, O full of all subtlety and all mischief, thou child of the Devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
95.        And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.” KJV.
96.        Have you seen the enemy of God’s righteousness? One that is distracting the attention of the Governor who invited Paul and Barnabas to hear the words of life, to hear about the righteousness of Christ.
97.        Afterward they traveled from town to town across the entire island until finally they reached Paphos, where they met a Jewish sorcerer, a false Prophet named Bar-Jesus. He had attached himself to the governor, Sergius Paulus, who was an intelligent man. The governor invited Barnabas and Saul to visit him, for he wanted to hear the word of God.
98.        Thus, no Governor will say that he is ignorant of the messages of Christ today. They will not say that they do not know that there is a man like Paul on the land today. However, greater than Paul is here. They will never say that they have never come across the messages of the Son of Man in the web for them to hear the words of life. They try that, this governor will rise up that day as a judgment to them. This man was looking for eternal life.
99.        “But Elymas, the sorcerer (as his name means in Greek), interfered and urged the governor to pay no attention to what Barnabas and Saul said. He was trying to keep the governor from believing. Saul, also known as Paul, was filled with the Holy Spirit, and he looked the sorcerer in the eye.
100.     Then he said, “You son of the Devil, full of every sort of deceit and fraud, and enemy of all that is good! Will you never stop perverting the true ways of the Lord?
101.     Watch now, for the Lord has laid his hand of punishment upon you, and you will be struck blind. You will not see the sunlight for some time.” Instantly mist and darkness came over the man’s eyes, and he began groping around begging for someone to take his hand and lead him. When the governor saw what had happened, he became a believer, for he was astonished at the teaching about the Lord.” LB.
102.     When the governor saw what happened, one that wanted to withstand God’s righteousness from being made known to the governor that desired eternal life, God struck him with blindness instantly. It is the revelation of God in our day.
103.     Verses 38-39, “Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God—something the Law of Moses could never do.  
104.     Be careful! Don’t let the Prophets’ words apply to you. For they said ‘Look, you mockers, be amazed and die! For I am doing something in your own day, something you would not believe even if someone told you about it.” LB.
105.     Romans chapter 4 verses 1-8. We are talking about God’s righteousness, self-righteousness and Church righteousness. Only God’s righteousness will stand the test of time and the Prophets predicted that it can never be abolished.
106.     What shall we say, then, of Abraham, the father of our race? What was his experience? If he was put right with God by the things he did, he would have something to boast about—but not in God's sight. The scripture says, “Abraham believed God, and because of his faith God accepted him as righteous.”
107.     A person who works is paid wages, but they are not regarded as a gift; they are something that has been earned. But those who depend on faith, not on deeds, and who believe in the God who declares the guilty to be innocent, it is this faith that God takes into account in order to put them right with himself.
108.     Do you see what God takes into account?
109.     This is what David meant when he spoke of the happiness of the person whom God accepts as righteous, apart from anything that person does: Happy are those whose wrongs are forgiven, whose sins are pardoned! Happy is the person whose sins the Lord will not keep account of!”  
110.     Does this happiness that David spoke of belong only to those who are circumcised? No indeed! It belongs also to those who are not circumcised. For we have quoted the scripture, “Abraham believed God, and because of his faith God accepted him as righteous. GNB.
111.     You see the righteousness of God is counted based on your faith in Christ, not what you did or what you will do.
112.     Second Corinthians chapter 5 verses 20-21, “Here we are, then, speaking for Christ, as though God himself were making his appeal through us. We plead on Christ's behalf: let God change you from enemies into his friends! Christ was without sin, but for our sake God made him share our sin in order that in union with him we might share the righteousness of God.” GNB.
113.      So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” LB.
114.     Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us; we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” KJV.
115.     For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. Now that we are called righteousness, who made us righteous? Christ revealed in our day. We are not talking about Christ in the person of Jesus. No! We are talking about Christ in person of Apostle Peter Odoemena in our own day, in one of the jungles in Africa, Onitsha, in Nigeria where we are today.
116.     If He is not Christ, why this supernatural vindications? If you say that you are a spiritual man, that you have the Spirit of God in you, you will recognize that what you are seeing and reading all these years in our website and messages is from God. Where you say that it is not true, Christ has never appeared to you for one day. You are seeing something that resembles Christ but not Christ. Amen.






THE ESSENCE OF THE LAW

BY
APOSTLE KELECHI UWAKWE


3
THE ESSENCE OF THE LAW
Romans chapter 10 verses 5-10, “For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them. But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above :)
2.           Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
3.           That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” KJV.   
4.           For Moses said that anyone who could keep all the Laws without offending in one would be counted perfect. Can it be possible? Moses knows that no person can be perfectly good and hold against temptation all his life and never sinned once, tell me, is it possible?
5.           If it is possible, the scripture has been broken. If it is possible then the scripture that says that there is no righteous man that sinneth not. However, the righteousness that comes through faith says that you do not need to search the Heavens to find Christ for Him to help you. And you don’t need to go to the dead to bring Him back to help you, for salvation comes from trusting Christ which is what we preach.
6.           All denominational members are lost. Apart from the Bridal Ministry, the Bridal Faith, all religious organizations including Muslims, they all preach the necessity for the observance of the Laws of Moses. And the Law, even if you observe Them without a single fault, yet you are lost. They are erring not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God.
7.           It took God to open the eyes of His disciples, that they might understand the real meaning of the scriptures. Romans chapter 3 verses 21 - 22, “But now the righteousness of God without the Law is manifested…”
8.            The righteousness of God which the Prophets predicted, that God said that my righteousness is coming so close, it is far away and it cannot be abolished for it has now manifested without the Law. Being witnessed by the Law and Prophets.
9.           “…Being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe:  for there is no difference.” KJV.
10.        But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the Law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the Prophets long ago. We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.” LB.
11.        The purpose of the Law, Romans chapter 4 verse 15, “For the Law always brings punishment on those who try to obey it. (The only way to avoid breaking the Law is to have no Law to break!) LB.
12.         The truth of the matter is this, remember what we are discussing, three kinds of righteousness: Church-righteousness, self-righteousness and God’s own righteousness, which one is effective? God’s own righteousness.
13.        The Supreme God concluded Church-righteousness and human righteousness as a filthy rag; and predicted through the mouths of His Prophets that His righteousness is coming so close, it is going to be revealed outside the Law. As many as will believe in that righteousness are those that are worthy of eternal life. They are the people that are worthy to be holy in the sight of God. This righteousness was predicted by the Laws and the Prophets.
14.        The Law spoke about God’s righteousness as well as the Prophets and here we are, with that righteousness upon us which is revealed to us in the person of Apostle Peter Odoemena in this our own Dispensation of Grace that was allotted to Him.
15.        We are the most favoured people. As long as you are in this Bridal Faith, God made us to know in the message “Faithfulness Explained,” He said, “Your membership in this Bridal Faith is not carnal, rather it must be spiritual. If it is carnal, your membership in this faith will not give you the required salvation.” It needs attitudinal faith of believing the Christ that is revealed in your day. 
16.        Romans chapter 7 verses 7-11, “Well then, am I suggesting that the Law of God is sinful? Of course not! In fact, it was the Law that showed me my sin. I would never have known that coveting is wrong if the Law had not said, “You must not covet.”  
17.        But sin used this command to arouse all kinds of covetous desires within me! If there were no Law, sin would not have that power.  At one time I lived without understanding the Law. But when I learned the command not to covet, for instance, the power of sin came to life,  and I died.
18.        So I discovered that the Law’s commands, which were supposed to bring life, brought spiritual death instead.  Sin took advantage of those commands and deceived me; it used the commands to kill me. LB.
19.        Romans chapter 5 verse 20, “Law was introduced in order to increase wrongdoing; but where sin increased, God's grace increased much more. LB.
20.        Do you see the reason why the Law was given? Why Saint Paul said that I want to be found in Him that day not having my own righteousness which is of the Law. The reason of the Ten Commandments is to show every human being that nobody can be able to obey the Law of God. Galatians chapter 3 verses 10-13.
21.        I am putting you in remembrance of the things that God gave us in the beginning where we stand today, rejoicing in the grace which God has given to us.
22.        Any day your faith drifts away from Christ, you are perishing. Any day you say that you are righteous because of your obedience to the rules and regulations of the Law, that day Christ will not save you.
23.        In this Bridal Faith, we depend wholly upon what Christ did for us. That we are rejoicing today, praising God just like Paul was asking the Galatians saying, “Are you so foolish, He that did miracles, signs and wonders, did He do it because of your obedience to the Law?”
24.        Are we not beneficiaries in our day? All these supernatural signs, supernatural occurrences among us, is God revealing Himself to us because we are obeying the Ten Commandments?
25.        If He stopped in 1996, somebody will say that it was because we were obeying the Law. Are we in 1996? Are we obeying the Laws of Moses? Are we boasting on what we can do or what we cannot do? Has it become clear?
26.        Others preach the Gospel but we fulfill the Gospel. That your implicit obedience to the Laws will only end at making you God’s greatest enemy. If you want to go to Hell, preach and insist on the necessity of obeying the Laws of Moses; especially the Ten Commandments which God says that it ends in death, but Christ has saved us from this impossible road to Heaven.
27.        The Son of Man has said it time without number that He is preaching “Heaven made easy” Message, that is “Heaven made simple” Message; Heaven made possible Message. Is it possible to go to Heaven? Yes. Is it easy? The easiest way is through the Son of Man.
28.        The best thing that will happen to somebody is to be in the Faith of the Son of Man, the only God’s approved Faith on Earth, The only true road to Paradise. The Devil is not happy with it. The Devil is not happy with this road for it is the ancient road that father Abraham brought. Glory be to God in the highest.
29.        Galatians chapter 3 verses 10-13, “But those who depend on the Law to make them right with God are under his curse, for the Scriptures say, “Cursed is everyone who does not observe and obey all the commands that are written in God’s Book of the Law.”  So it is clear that no one can be made right with God by trying to keep the Law.
30.        For the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” This way of faith is very different from the way of Law, which says, “It is through obeying the Law that a person has life.”  
31.        But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the Law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.” LB.  Amen.






THE ACCUSER OF BRETHREN

BY
APOSTLE KELECHI UWAKWE



4
THE ACCUSER OF BRETHREN
L
et us go straight to the accuser of the brethren, because from time to time the accuser will stand by the side accusing you of many, many things.
2.           The accuser might be your husband, the accuser might be your wife, the accuser might be your neighbor, the accuser might be your friend. The accuser is a human being. It can also be your conscience.
3.           You know, Saint Paul out of a pure conscience persecuted the truth. The accuser might be confusion that has beset in and you do not know what you believe anymore, and you begin to query yourself saying, “What is happening?” When you begin to query yourself, you have started accusing yourself, imputing sin where there is no sin.
4.           Go to the Message “The Accuser of the Brethren,” peradventure the Devil may come in the form of a human being or come in the form of anointing of the spirit to begin to ask you saying, “Do you want to tell me that you will set these Laws aside? Do you want to tell me that if I do this that God will not condemn me?” You see, anointing has come.
5.           Besides, no matter the way it is coming, God is saying, “I reject these accusations for I have purposed to bless, to save Joshua and his people for they represent the good things to come” and we are those good things. We are no longer the shadow, we are the reality! For the Law was a shadow foreshadowing good things to come. Is that scriptural?
6.           The Law was our schoolmaster, introducing us to Christ. Now, Christ has appeared, we are no longer under the schoolmaster. Now you are saved according Colossians chapter 2.
7.           Why will you obey the elemental spirits that will command you, “Eat not, touch not, don’t do this, drink not.” These are rules and regulations that ended when Christ came.
8.           Has Christ come? You must know the truth and the truth will set you free. You know, sometimes we behave as if we know nothing but we are the embodiment of all.
9.           “The Great Sermon,” Epistle 7, page 195 verses 34 – 42, “And all who depend on the Law (who are seeking to be justified by obedience to the Law rituals) are under a curse and doomed to disappointment and destruction for it is written in the Scriptures, Cursed (accursed, devoted to destruction, doomed to eternal punishment) be everyone who does not continue to abide (live and remain) by all the precepts and commands written in the Book of the Law and to practice them.
10.        Now it is evident that no person is justified (declared righteous and brought into right standing with God) through the Law, for the Scripture says.
11.        The man in right standing with God (the just, the righteous) shall live by and out of faith by he who through and by faith is declared righteous and in right standing with God shall live.
12.        But the Law does not rest on faith (Does not require faith, has nothing to do with faith), for it itself says, he who does them (the things prescribed by the Law) shall live by them (not by faith).
Christ purchased our freedom (redeeming us) from the curse (Doom) of the Law (and its condemnation) by (Himself) becoming a curse for us, for it is written (In the Scriptures), Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (Is crucified)” (Gal. 3: 10-11, AMP).
13.        “Yes, and those who depend on the Jewish Laws to save them are under God’s curse, for the Scripture point out very clearly, Cursed is everyone who at any time breaks a single one of these Laws, that are written in God’s Book of Law, Consequently, it is clear that no one can ever win God’s favour by trying to keep the Jewish Laws, because God has said that the only way we can be right in His sight is by faith as the Prophet Habakkuk says it, The man who finds life will find it through trusting God.
14.        How different from this way of faith is the way of the Law, which says that a man is saved by obeying every Law of God, without one slip.
15.        But Christ has brought us out from under the doom of that impossible system by taking the curse for wrong doing upon himself. For it is written in the Scripture, anyone who is hanged on a tree is cursed (as Jesus Christ was hung upon a wooden cross)” (Gal. 3: 10-11, LB).
16.        Page 196 verses 46 – 48, “Christ’s death on the cross is the only price, God required for our acquittal from the condemnation of the Law and of sin. There He made it impossible for Satan to accuse His children of sin, by destroying the Law, which is the power and source of sin.
17.         If you still tremble when people accuse you of sin, it is a sure sign that you never believed and acknowledged what Christ has done for you. When you believe, there is going to be a performance of that which God has promised and written very clearly in His word. But if you do not believe, you cannot be a beneficiary of His gracious provisions for all that believe.
18.        Page 197 verses 2 – 11, “And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago, God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.
19.        And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as He did unto us. And put no difference between us and them, purifying their heart by faith. Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
20.        But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved even as they.
21.         Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them. And after they held their peace, James answered, saying, men and brethren, hearken unto me: Simon hath declared how God at the beginning did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for His name. and to this agree the word of the Prophets, as it iss written, After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:
22.        That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord who doeth all these things.
23.        Known unto God are all His works from the beginning of the world. Wherefore my sentence is that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are returned to God.
24.        But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood. For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath day” (Acts. 15: 7-21, KJV).
25.        Page 201 verses 29 – 34, “Peter had already finished the matter by telling them not to trouble Christian with the Laws of Moses that even they Gentiles will be saved by the grace of Christ, and not by the Laws of Moses.
26.        James stood up because he wanted to be heard, and confirmed what Peter said to be perfect and even quoting Scriptures to support it. James finally made a suggestion that the Gentile Churches should be given three Laws only instead of ten or more.
27.        Why must they be given only three and not all? Is there disparity in keeping the Laws of God? Are there some meant to keep all, and some to keep few? What was James’ reason for his suggestion?
28.        Notice what was said in verse 21. That Moses’ Laws were being read in the synagogues every Sabbath day. The Jews lay great emphasis on their Laws. He did not say that God told him or that the Holy Spirit commanded him to say so.
29.        His suggestion pleased the rest of the Apostles, who have already compromised their faith, because of fear of persecution from the hands of the Jews and legalists at Jerusalem.
30.        I want you to know that self-righteousness of any human being will earn him death in the sight of God. But our faith in Christ that is revealed in our own day, that is where God’s righteousness is stored and revealed to as many as God wants to save both in the Jews and in the Gentiles.
31.        Outside Christ no human being can be saved. Remain blessed brethren as we continue in Him. Amen.








THREE KINDS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (2)

THREE KINDS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS(2)
We thank Almighty God Who has been our strength and our righteousness in this our own day. Three kinds of righteousness!
2.           This message was handled many years ago, at the same time I handled the message titled “Three kinds of believers;” three kinds of righteousness: Self-righteousness, Church-righteousness and God’s righteousness.
3.           If you have been taking note of the Message, if you are in your right mind and senses, you would have noticed one thing there. Apart from this Faith, the entire Church world including pagans even atheist, free thinkers; they are operating in two types of righteousness.
4.           Apart from this Bridal Faith, the entire world is guilty of operating in two types of righteousness; namely, Self-righteousness and Church righteousness!
5.           Yes, Church or organizational or institutional righteousness. The two or the last two can never offer salvation to any man. Remember, when we talk about this all-important matter, we refer to it spiritually.
6.           With your mouth, you may denounce self-righteousness and institutional righteousness, yet with your heart they are trapped. Everything that is defiling you is taking place in your heart. Once the necessity to be obedient to these useless Law IS trapped in your heart, you can never meet God’s righteous demand.
7.           I am saying that God’s righteousness operates alone. However, it can be contaminated. Why must it be God’s righteousness alone? So that at the end, no flesh will brag, no flesh will glory that he has achieved it at last by his own self-striving or by his implicit loyalty or obedience to God’s demand.
8.           God has allowed His salvation to be attached to His own righteousness alone so that at the end, you have nothing to glory about. Rather you can say “Praise be to God for including me in the list of these beneficiaries of this great unmerited favour.”
9.           It is an unmerited favour we are enjoying in this most holy Faith. Talk of places where by human estimation God wants to fellowship with, it can never be this Faith for there is nothing good around this place that can attract the attention of anybody. If our worship ground is well located, we will not be here. Millionaire Church would have contracted this place out.
10.        Remember, many Churches have come here and gone because they believe it is in the remote wilderness where their worshippers cannot afford to come. This is why we are the only people in Jerusalem. They have been coming; wherever their rent expires, they go away. Instead of gaining more converts, they will lose.
11.        However, we have remained here and this place is meant for us. The rock that brought us to Jerusalem and later became our pulpit is still there. Why are we here? He insulated us with the Holy Spirit, built a hedge around us keep us from being contaminated with the religious spirit that is at work in Onitsha and in the whole world.
12.        Only God’s people can be here and have peace, the rest will see and go away. Thank God for this message. Now, narrow it down to yourself. Of the three types of righteousness, which one do you possess?
13.        God has mentioned three types of righteousness; one contains salvation while the other two are death; which one are you holding and condemning us?
14.        Watch all that condemn us, they base their conclusion on either self-righteousness or Church righteousness or both. It is not true?
15.        Glory be to God in the highest. You are the people of God. However, I want you to know one funny thing about God and His people. Anywhere you go, you see Churches, associations, group of people and things like that carrying Bible, making a hell of noise. Ask them, they will tell you that they are gathering in the name of the Lord; that they are worshipping Jehovah, that they are worshipping Jesus.
16.        Talk with them further, they will tell you, “We are God’s children! We are God’s people.” You see, I laugh at them and say, “you are not God’s people until God is made manifest in your midst.” it takes God to take a people to Himself. no more, no less. You cannot force yourself into God. You cannot come up and call yourself a people of God; no. It is absolutely wrong! Has God confirmed your worship?
17.        You say, “We are children of God, we are the people of God;” what is the evidence? Has God said you are His people? Has God called you His own people? This is the most important thing.
18.        To us who are covenanted to Him, we have that assurance, undeniable evidence within and without that we are God’s people. We are the children of the Kingdom, to whom the promise was made. For our sake, the Saviour is sent. Not for them, but for us. We are the people of God not because we desired to be so, but because God came down and called us His people.
19.        When we were trying to prove stubborn, He said, “Whether we like it or not, I must be God over you. You are my people, I have called you my people. my name is upon you. I have come down to be with you, I will never depart. If you sin against me, I must surely punish you but I will never withdraw my spirit from you, for I have called you my people. I must save you for my name’s sake.”
20.        Now, to confirm that statement, that is the essence of all these supernatural occurrences. All aiming at confirming the promise to be sure and certain. He said, “If it is possible for the course of a river to be reversed, let it be known to you that I will one day forsake you. but if it is not possible, come what may, I must be God over you.
21.        Put yourself in the position of that person who tasted this Faith for some years and went away, then saw these supernatural photographs captured in our midst and said, “So these things He proclaimed have become at last real!”
22.        Did I not tell you that play, play, play; we have found ourselves in Paradise? Go to the message titled “Do not be corrupted by the simplicity that is in Christ.” The warning there says, “Be very careful about over-familiarity, it can be destructive.”
23.        You say, “I know Him, He is my father, He is my husband; He is my brother, my town’s man, my uncle, my lover;” that is a lie. He said, “Keep all these things aside. Let us face the stark realities.”
24.        Bishop Nathaniel, I was talking about you recently; now you are in the Fellowship in Jerusalem, I have to say it. Remember, if I say it, the Devil will hear it too.
25.        I was talking to my children recently, “Now you are in preparatory to Umuahia and there is no other person there you are meeting than the Bishop of my soul.” No matter the way you see it, I do not care! I still say it wherever I go that Bishop Nat is the best and approved Bishop I have in this Bridal Faith. Yes! Many hate him! Many do not want to hear about him for they have concluded that he is very strict.
26.        Yes, his strictness is godly strictness. I said to my children, “Yes, my greatest joy is that I am posting you to Umuahia where you will be tutored under the prying eyes of Bishop Nath who knows everything about this Faith. He will use that same strictness he used in controlling the daughter of our late Elder Onyekachi Nwosu, who uselessed his children by over-pampering them.” For it is not easy to marry his daughter and cause the daughter of Nwosu to bend down and answer “sir” to a man.
27.        You are a Bishop indeed! You do not know that I monitor all of you. Where you think I am waiting for you is too far away from where I am watching you. By revelation, he was in this Faith in the end-time as an Apostle. I was his interpreter. Many times he came to our fellowship at Onitsha on his missionary work; I was his interpreter before this Faith came.
28.        When this Faith came, he heard about it, he was challenged, he was the apostle that shouted, “I surrender!” publicly for he saw something greater than what he was holding. He announced it publicly: “I surrender!” together with his wife. He went for baptism and he was re-baptized, became humble, and remained humble till today.
29.        The excommunication he suffered, I approved it because of one thing, that was in 1993. He got the revelation as one that read the Prophet’s messages and believed in them. With his experiences, he got the revelation. However, the time was not ripe for that revelation to be made public. He mounted the pulpit and preached it, “If any man does not believe that Apostle Peter Odoemena is the very promised Christ; that man is an antichrist! For I saw nothing at Onitsha but the promised Christ.” this happened in 1993!
30.        You see, Brother Chike excommunicated him with Brother Tochukwu John. The report came to Me, I confirmed the excommunication: “It is antichrist to make a man God.” They pushed him outside. Two weeks after, I went there and brought him back, for that was the only way the rest could remain until the time.
31.         I knew that he was right, but the time for that revelation was not yet come, for the Son of Man has not given out a teaching on that. The Son of Man was just coming out gradually, gradually. You know the year He gave you the teaching on He that was in the masquerade, which culminated into “the revelation of the Son of Man.”
32.        We have been patient in this Faith. When people talk blah, blah, blah, the Son of Man does not give them audience for I am on course. While should I wrestle with you? Do you know me? You met me on the way! If I do not tell you who I am, how will you know Me?
33.        Note it; the Son of Man is becoming clearer to many of you now. Even my wife and children are still astonished. Brother Mike, are you not wondering? Many of you that have been acquainted with Me for years, towards these dying minutes, you are all frightened. While some are wondering: “Why did He not reveal these things in the beginning?”
34.        If I had revealed them, do you think you would have been in this most holy Faith? The revelations are coming at the right time when you can no longer make an inch as withdrawal. Yes! I have built a strong hedge and the height of the hedge is higher than what you can jump. If you jump, you hit the roof and land back inside the Ark. You demonstrate, you are demonstrating inside.
35.        The body of my ship is so much fortified, not with cast iron but with steel. Not ordinary steel, steel with very high density. You cannot cut it without toxic acetylene gas. That is the only thing that can tamper with steel with high density. You do not touch it anyhow. That is what I used in my hedge. You want to use your teeth, your whole teeth will go out.
36.        What am I saying concerning our brother? If you use the stubbornness of his wife to judge him, you are erring for you cannot live with his wife for twenty-four hours without committing murder.
37.        Look at Brother Chike who married the best wife, however, because he does not know the value of good thing, any little mistake, he will try to strangle his wife to death. You cannot live thirty minutes with the wife of Brother Nath.
38.        I know all of you, I know your families. I know the materials you are made up of. It is just like Brother Ugo who is calling us for wedding. He said he is coming to wed in Onitsha! Fine! Pray that the Son of Man will not be the one that will be your preacher. Simply pray that the Son of Man will only wed you and not preach.
39.        Yes! I know him, I know his father! His father does not know me. Brother Ugo, you are a typical Nsukka upstart. The same way, your wife is a typical Nsukka upstart. You have similarities but there is something in similarities: Similarities must either be Godly or ungodly. Let Me stop there.
40.        That day, I will tell you why I find it difficult to drink your wine. You presented it and I gave it out immediately to somebody who will handle it, not me. I have my reasons. I am of age, and the ministry is of age. Do you believe that?
41.        Bishop Nath maintained the strictness of an apostle. Concerning this Faith, you cannot joke with him there. I know his problem and that his problem is my delight. He does not suppress his feelings. Anywhere he goes, he wants to be identifed and addressed as Bishop Nath.
42.        He does not want to let anybody make him inferior. Rather he will like to prove to all that although he is moving on leg, that he is approved in the sight of God as a Bishop than any other; for he knows the source of his Bishopric office and he is proud of it. He is proud of his position. Thus, he does not want anybody to belittle him.
43.        To some who do not know what he is doing, they see it as pomposity. He is not pompous, he is not arrogant, he is not stubborn. Remember he was the one that hosted us at Isi-alangwa for years and I used him as example when I was telling you that I saw this brother as one with sterling qualities that are worthy of emulation.
44.        Number one is that, he is a man of contagious generosity, who rejoices with visitors even when he has no kobo to entertain them. You see, he will be very happy accommodating them in his house and he will make sure that they eat before they go.
45.        If you refuse eating, he will keep on persuading you, wanting you to eat. I said that he does not have Ngwa spirit in that aspect because by nature, every Ngwa man is selfish. Selfishness is their stock-in-trade. They know the truth.
46.        I am happy he has endured everything from the beginning till the end. Where he is now, it is impossible for him to fall away from the Faith. If he should fall away, where will he land? You want to talk about making prove of his ministry, remember that they were only but three: Bishop Nath, Brother John Okechukwu and Sister Chineye. Three of them.
47.        What is more, they remained three for over one year before Brother Chike came. His wife now carried the rest in; where are they today? You do not join this Faith anyhow. Glory be to God in the highest.
48.        I love giving people their flowers while they are still alive. Bishop Nath, keep it up! You know people hate spiritual men who will use this Faith to put them in other, because by nature useless people love those who pamper them, those who praise them even when they are going wrong.
49.        That is why I am proud and happy that my children are now heading to Umuahia where they will be nurtured both spiritually and otherwise. I would not like their academic careers to have adverse effect on the spiritual conditions. And Brother Nat has all the wherewithal to keep them within the boundaries of God’s love, boundaries of our faith where God’s love can reach and bless them. So what am I saying brethren? We are God’s people because He has proclaimed us His own people.
50.        He has gone further to come down in person, revealing Himself, magnifying Himself in our midst. Something He prophesied many years ago that “whenever I want to magnify myself in the midst of my people, I will show them my original body.”
51.        We have seen the original body, we have seen everything. We are no longer in doubt as to whether we are having dealings with God or the Devil. Because in all, I have never seen the sign of the Devil and the Devil has no part here because I am here. If you are seeing the Devil here, you are seeing yourself. You are the Devil, no other person. Do not ask the person where the Devil is, that person is the Devil.
52.        What is the Devil coming in this most holy Faith to do? What the Devil is looking for cannot be found in this most holy Faith. Glory be to God in the highest, truly speaking you are wonderful people, supernatural human beings sitting down from morning till this hour. Not complaining of food or water or anything, not grumbling or murmuring; rather you are feeling like continuing anyhow. That goes to confirm that man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
53.        Glory be to God, having people like this. It gives me joy more than any other thing. You see why I am pleading with you to behave well? make good character your nature; emulate the character of the Son of Man whose heart is larger than His size and You will not regret at all. stop being narrow-minded, broaden your heart.
54.        Stop being narrow-minded, let your heart be broad; broader than my own if it will be possible and you will always be happy.
55.        Who is not happy finding himself or herself in this fellowship where God Himself is the general Overseer? Even if the Devil will be permitted to come in this most holy Faith, he will rejoice. He is thinking a way to come but no way.
56.        DO NOT FORGET THE FACT THAT THE ANNOUNCEMENT IS ABOUT TO BE MADE. People like Brother Vin who will hold their handset and will not know when the phone is ringing should be careful, man and woman alike.
57.        Three types of righteousness, the glory of God has come down. We have seen everything, God vindicating that we are on the right track. Who will be in the water and soap will enter his eyes? Why is it that the water that saves somebody will destroy you?
58.        The Elders that were with me in the vehicle from home, do you remember what I told you, the dream I had, how many can remember?
59.        Since Deacon Joshua died and was buried, I have never seen him in my dream until the preceding  day of burying Elder Mike. That was Thursday night. You see, Deacon Joshua appeared in a dream before me wearing his cloth, I do not know how to label it, it is not purple, it is not yellow, it is in between the two; brocade up and down, looking very well.
60.        There was a problem; some young men were playing draught along the corridor. Brother John Abah was behaving as is he was not seeing them. Goddy Tobechukuw was not showing interest. Lo and behold, I came in and saw the young men making noise and playing the draught when the fellowship was on. I was not happy. I turned to my left and saw Deacon Joshua who said, “Daddy wait, let me chase them away from here. I do not know what Goddy and John Abah are doing in this fellowship! Why are they watching these boys desecrating this place?” 
61.        He went straight, carried their draught and threw it away. Gathered the whole wooden seats and threw all of them away also. Then chased them up to the hill, came back and leaned on the fellowship pavement, faced the other way. I was standing there, my spirit was pleased, then I came inside and the dream varnished.
62.        I said that a Deacon is a Deacon. Thus, he is a part of this burial arrangement. Why must the spirit appear before Me a day to the day when we were travelling? What is more, he was not happy with Brother John Abah and Goddy Tobechukwu for neglecting their duties. In that dream, he played the role of a Deacon, a Police officer as he arrested the situation. I do not need a Prophet to tell me that he was in Abaomege with us.
63.        Wherever we are, the spirits of the saints are there with us.  All that departed (slept) in this Faith, their spirits must be wherever we are. Even in this fellowship at this very hour, may be you do not know that we that are still alive will not prevent them on that Glorious Day from coming out, live. How are they coming out? In the theophany body just like the one in Supernatural photograph.
64.        On that day when salvation shall be made complete, when we shall wear this uniform and be in this theophany body, all of them that died in Christ will be having fellowship with us in this theophany body. Only in this theophany body, can we see, embrace and recognise ourselves.
65.        UNTIL THEN, THEY WILL BE SITTING DOWN IN THE FELLOWSHIP WITH THEIR THEOPHANY BODIES, CLAPPING HANDS, GIVING OFFERINGS, DANCING AND PRAISING GOD WITH US FOR THEY CAN NEVER AVOID FELLOWSHIP.
66.        When you hear that those that died in Christ will rise first, we that are alive will be transformed; you think that the graves will open? No. No grave will open. That is misinterpretation of the scripture. If graves will open, Let me tell you, wherever you are now was a grave of somebody. Do you believe that? Almost all your buildings are constructed on top of graves. Water is not vomiting anybody, for water never swallowed the spirit of anybody.
67.        As the spirit of God hovered over the waters, so their spirit are here with us. Fire will not ravage anybody. It means that the person you thought fire engulfed, you see him back in this same theophany body, wearing white and this is the only ground where we can recognize ourselves. Thus, we will rejoice, this is the only angelic body of the saints. This dress does not know male or female. Everybody will appear in this form. This is the uniform, this is the complete Redemption. There is reason why He is there, if you lack the revelation of what is there, you are completely lost.
68.        Do not expect anything higher than that. You pay no rent in that condition. You can never suffer asthma, hepatitis, malaria. Nobody will prepare your grave. I mean, this personality will not die again.
69.        This personality will no more sorrow, no more pain, no anguish, no fighting, no war. Whom is He going to war against? Definitely nobody. This is the eternal rest. And He is alive forevermore. That is why He appeared live.
70.        I do not want to comment further there for we have seen He that dwells in the light where no man can approach. He that dwells in the Thick Darkness, using darkness as a covering. He that dwells in Thick Darkness, Thick Cloud has made Himself known.
71.        The brightness of the light of His countenance is already there, everything you can think of is there. I mean, you should be comfortable. Now, do you know why He has decided to come down again? Not that He went away, He has been here. From time to time and He will display something. A sure sign that He that told you to wait is waiting with you.
72.        After touring in the night, in the day He will come and rest with you. In the night He is on tour. Have you not heard it from His mouth that you are better off than the Son of Man in the sense that when you go to bed, you rest. But when He goes to bed, He will be touring the whole world, until 4.30am, then He will come back and sleep. Have you not heard it from His mouth? You have heard it.
73.        You are better off! When you are feeling cold, He is sweating. Do not worry, one of these days, with your mouth you will say, “Who is this man that is coming from bozrah with dyed garment stained with blood?” He will tell you, “I have wrestled with the nations of the Earth! I have done great exploits among the heathens. They have paid dearly for their willful neglect and disobedience to the Gospel of Christ.” yes, they must pay dearly!
74.        Glory be to God in the highest. Peace be unto men of good will! We thank God, no matter the judgment God has passed to the world. We are still here with them. If there is anytime you must feed a criminal, it is the time he has been condemned to death, awaiting execution. Government gives him the best food, the best attention; knowing that it is a matter of waking up one morning to sign the execution paper, finish.
75.        Has he been condemned to death? Yes! Either by hanging or by electrocution or by firing squad. He has been condemned to death, but what is pending? The governor is yet to append his signature. Have you heard me? This was what informed our action recently.
76.        After seeing the plight of the refugees, not as a result of war, but as a result of trouble God Himself initiated. God initiated trouble, the same God came to the rescue of those that have been condemned to death. God was moved with compassion. Because of the horrible sight, He paid them a visit with some relief materials so that they will continue to eat and live until the day they will all be slaughtered.
77.        We paid the refugees a visit on Monday with some bags of rice, yam tubers, palm oil and some bags of domestic salt, to enable them continue to exist. Though they are existing, but they are not living.
78.        You might be existing in this most holy Faith but you are not alive in this most holy Faith, until you are justified by the Son of Man.
79.         Brother Chime, are you taking note? You can laugh away everything but not this matter. I remember that I have placed this card before you before? Am I telling lies? Have I not presented this matter before you?
80.        Note it, you cannot leave this Faith or be condemned without the Son of Man speaking concerning you or inviting you in person, to tell you the seriousness of your offence. The seriousness may not be reflected in my tone, because my mood determines my tone.
81.        If I am in my very happy mood with my bottle of beer or kai-kai  (hot drink), you may think I am not serious. If I am enjoying corn with Apostle Kelechi and Pastor Thomas, we may give out part of the corn and coconut, while I am talking you may not take me seriously, but I mean it to the core. If you are not worthy of the Kingdom, I will speak without remorse because of the offence you committed.
82.        If you had shown remorse, I would have rescinded on my decision. When a child breaks a plate and tells his parents, will he be flogged? He will be warned, “Do not do it again!” If he hides it, when the plate will be about to be used and it was discovered that he broke it, will he escape the punishment? No, because the mind of everybody is on that plate, not knowing that he has broken it and hid it.
83.        This matter I am discussing, ninety nine percent (99%) of the members in this household do not know about it. That there was a day or a time Brother Chime decamped from this most holy Faith and embraced a denomination. Defiling himself by committing adultery which I hate.
84.        Some people’s evils will go before them, get exposed while they are here, for them to be rebuked that they might repent; while some will be hiding and follow them to the Judgment Seat.
85.        Note, the Son of Man is still repeating every day that He is no longer sitting on the Mercy Seat: “I never knew, I am sorry, I did not mean to do it!” Keep it to yourself.”
86.        Some have received warnings even recently. Prominent among them is Brother Tony Mbah from Umuahia. He got the warning: “Never you try it again! What saved you is your newness to the Faith! Otherwise, you would have paid very dearly!”
87.        What did he do? “Daddy, I forgot.” That was all! Did he forget it intentionally? No. But for saying, “Daddy, I forgot!” No more! Take note of it.
88.        I was talking to my family concerning the three cankerworms, the three forces that bite down the oak tree which God cannot stand to accommodate; number one is murmuring. Number two (2) is complaining. Number three (3) is grumbling.
89.        These were the crimes they committed in the wilderness. The climax was the crime of fornication, that is, joining denominations, the things I hate. All of them that were guilty of it, they were slaughtered, their carcasses littered in the wilderness. Murmuring, Complaining and Grumbling, nobody goes to school to learn them. Sometimes, they are not premeditated. Sometimes, they might be as a result of correction which you might be thinking is painful or hash.
90.        I know of a truth, according to the scriptures that no correction, no chastisement is joyous at this present time. However, afterwards, it yields peaceable results. Is it not true? If you are not careful, you begin to complain and murmur; before you know it, God will mark something in your name with a red pen, because that which you did here is what you will do there. This is why I am taking my time, for you are not going to be in another place, whatever you are here is what you will be there. Whatever you are manifesting is what you will manifest there and I can never sponsor coup that will overthrow me.
91.        If I were in the shoes of Noah, I would have queried God: “You want to get rid of evil, everything evil from the world, you have decided to use water to wipe every creature including human beings, animals plants, and everything, whether good or bad. Now, in your attempt to save, you said that I and my family, that we are good, that we should enter, that I should take everything that is good: plant, crippling animal, dangerous and things like that. Anyone that is not harmful, I should put seven (7) in number, but anyone that is bad, I should put two (2).”
92.        I will challenge that instruction: “Sir, far be it from me to put anything harmful in this ark. If it will reproduce, what have we achieved? If I want to sanitize now, I am going to sanitize all.”
93.        All causes of offence can never smell Paradise. Even if you are in that Ark, the door is not going to open for you. If you are in the Ark, liken yourself to the carton carrying stockfish. The cartons that carried stockfish travelled with the stockfish from Norway to Nigeria; enduring the tempest and the waves, arrived Nigeria safely.
94.        Now, custom officers and clearing agents will clear everything, insurance people will give the cover from the Norway to the warehouse. At the warehouse, the owner has nothing to do with the cartons or jute bags. If you perceive them, you just perceive the scent of stockfish, but you can never cook them in the pot; they smell like the stockfish, because they have been with the stockfish for a very long time, but they are not stockfish.
95.        The master paid for the stockfish and not for the cartons. At the end, the cartons will end their journey with the woman frying akara (beans cake), while the stockfish will find its way to the warehouse. Am I  making sense?
96.        Who will like to be that carton that will travel with the stockfish from Norway to Nigeria, endured the tempest and everything only to end it in the fire? If this illustration means something to you, think about it.  
97.        I know I am the Son of Man. I know that the Deity dwells in Me. I know  that I am God made visible in human form. I know I am married. From my loins my children came. However, I have not given them express ticket to Paradise.
98.        Have you understood me? If there should be one that should collect express ticket, that is automatic entrance, it will start with my family; number one being my wife. Number two being my children. They do not need to be listening to Me.
99.        If there should be one that should be given express ticket in Jesus’ day, the mother (Mary) should be number one. The father should be two. Though the father impregnated the mother but the mother reserved the right to kill the baby in the labour room. Am I making sense? Yet in the Upper Room, the mother was number one to be there.
100.     IF YOU ARE INTELLIGENT AND WISE, THINK TWICE! ESPECIALLY NOW THAT THE SON OF MAN HAS LEFT THE MERCY SEAT AND HE IS TELLING YOU TO KEEP YOUR “PLEASE” (I PLEAD) INSIDE YOUR HAND BAG. LET NOBODY COME TO PLEAD WITH ME. DO NOT COME TO PLEAD WITH ME. I SAID DO NOT COME TO PLEAD BEFORE ME, FOR MY EARS ARE DEAF TO YOUR PLEADINGS. MAN AND WOMAN, KNOW THYSELF.
101.     You see Brother Emma Iwunor’s wedding, if there is a wedding that should attract our attention, it is this one. This is a glorious wedding. If God will permit me to be available for the wedding; you see, my neighbour is having a ceremony that day but Brother Emmanuel is my son, not my neighbour. If God will permit me to be still alive till that very day, I will wed them. Reasons best known to Me. I want to close the mouths of all gainsayers. God specializes in doing things that are impossible.  
102.     I have heard many things concerning this marriage. I do not want to talk because I know I am the Initiator. Thus, when some people talked blah,blah,blah (nonsense), I said, “Ok, thank you very much. I have heard you. Brother Emma must be dealt with. We will kill Emma! We will teach him lesson so that I will calm you down.” On the other hand, I have made up my mind.
103.     However, there is only but one thing I can never approve: I will say no to Brother Emma wedding his wife in Jerusalem and take us to his in-laws. I will never permit that. I will wed Emma in Jerusalem before many witnesses. Then if he wants to do the ceremony in Jericho or Namibia or Zakibiam, up to him. Talk of wedding, it takes place in Jerusalem.
104.     If you want to know why I am interested in this wedding, come on the wedding day, finish. We do not have to buy you goat or cow, we may not have to buy you groundnut or fanta soft drink but we have Christ to present, finish. If we see water we drink, but there must be more than water, there must be more than water.  
105.     United Arab Emirate has started reading our Messages on the web. United Arab Emirate (UAE), a place that Bible is prohibited. Bible can never enter there. Even if you are seen with anything Christian cassette, it is life imprisonment or death by hanging. United Arab Emirate viewing our Messages! Brethren, this is landslide victory!
106.     If you know what I am saying, you will be happy twenty-four hours, that we have entered where the Bible can never enter even till the next world. God is perfect in His wisdom. A sure proof that God neither a Christian nor a Muslim.
107.     I met Brother Ben in End-time in 1990 when he was in a missionary trip with his wife from Enugu to Uguwmba. He made a stopover to be with them for some days and I became his interpreter. All of them that were coming within the period I identified with them, I remained their favorite interpreter.
108.     Name the minister, once he touches his feet in Onitsha, he will say, “Please, please, where is that our brother? I will like him to interpret for me.” I agreed and continued interpreting.
109.     Brother Ben is consumed by the Bridal Faith; the zeal of God has consumed Brother Ben. Brother Ben was at the point of death but God said no. When he could not use his voice to address his Brethren again, God said he is going to continue anyhow. Brother Ben carried his pen and sat down. Instead of staying idle, to show appreciation to God, he published a golden nugget, the largest volume of nuggets ever, since the inception of this ministry.
110.     I mean, something the pastors in Onitsha cannot settle down and do, something Apostles cannot do, something Bishops cannot do, rather they will settle to find unnecessary faults with their Brethren. They will settle for drinking and eating, parties and merriment. While some will give themselves to walking up and down.
111.     Brother Ben settled down to pen down golden nuggets from the Messages of the Son of Man. When you see a man of God, it requires no interpretation. There are some that could use what happened to them as an excuse.
112.     You see, I met a challenging condition the day we joined hands with Brother Tony Egbuna to bury his late elder brother. All that went there were astonished that using clutches is not a deformity. Bishop Moses take note. We saw a young man, an Onitsha indigene who made use of clutches; one leg was amputated but was stronger than one that has two legs. He could use one leg to jump, dance, to do everything, somersaulting, kneeling down and jumping up.
113.     In fact, something terrible happened that day. There was no magic there. The money he collected there was by far greater than what Brother Tony collected for that became their attraction. Thus, carrying clutches is not a deformity. You may use your clutches as an excuse for not rendering your services as a Bishop, you go to Hellfire.
114.     We will understand it better by and by. I will not talk now. If I talk I will prolong the fellowship. But let me appreciate the visions of our brethren now. If you had developed this type of visions from the beginning, I bet you by now I would have called it quit with this journey.
115.     What I am longing to see in you have started manifesting. What is that thing? FAITH IN THE PERSON GOD HAS SENT. When you shall exalt the Son of Man, you will know that I am He. In addition, anytime the Son of Man shall be exalted, you shall be exalted with Him: “Son of Man, I have glorified you and I will glorify you again”. When He shall be glorified with the Angels of Heaven, you shall also be glorified with Him.
116.     In all the photographs so far taken, all the revelations in our midst, is there anyone you can quote where His glory enveloped the Son of Man and left you behind? No.
117.     In the Godhead, you were all swallowed up in immortality. The one that was even presented this day, not even a single soul was seen, or even the weakest fellow, or even the vilest offender was seen. Glory be to God. Amen.
