ACTION TIME PART 2 (TRAINING OF CHILDREN) CAMP MEETING

Preached on 30th December, 1997 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE GREAT JEHOVAH” “Truth has no substitute” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE
  
I am He, the Self-existing One, the beginning and the end. I am the only Being that can tell you the mysteries of life
and death. Believe it if you can…
— The Son of Man.                 
NOW I KNOW THAT THOU ART A MAN OF GOD, PG. 3

At times, parents program their children with very nice programs that if life tarries; that the least must have a degree. It is a very nice program and I have nothing against it. But you can hardly see parents that will join their hearts together and conclude that they must train their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. It is very hard to see something like that. They can spend millions for their children to become something in the society but nobody thinks of training his own child in the fear of the Lord.
Lots of people here on earth lose bearing because they were not properly guided. Any child that is not properly guided must lose his or her bearing, and must be a disappointment to himself or herself, to his or her parents and to the society. –The Son of Man   (CATCH THEM YOUNG. page 3).

MAN IS VERY INSINCERE
(The Son of Man led the Church in a session of refreshing and reviving praises)
I wanted to see whether you will refuse God, whether you will close your mouth because your enemy is back to the pulpit. If you had closed your mouth, I would have done something tonight that will make many of you run away from here. Some will climb on top of human beings.
2.          I remember one day, Pastor Joseph from Jos nearly ran away from the Church. Brother Martin could not stand up including Brethren from the North that were that side. It was wonderful that day. Some of you here nearly fainted. How many were in the fellowship that day? I was present. It was a wonderful day. (The Son of Man led in another round of praises).
3.          I will not sing again. You want to trick me. You want me to forget the business I came here for. No! As for many; “Let us, let us. Let us tempt him. Let us sing and sing and sing so that he will be enjoying it until He will forget the Message and give us another thing.”
4.          Nothing can make me forget it. That is the essence of the gathering. Afterall, I told you ahead of time that a day is coming when I will be in my full uniform and I will dominate this pulpit, morning and night, until I have achieved my target.
5.          I have surrendered my old tattered garment. I am putting on my royal and wedding garment. The glory of the former temple is gone. Ancient men! I say the glory of the former temple is gone. You know, when the temple was destroyed, a time came when the people refused that temple.
6.          Young men that heard about the glory of the former one, but they did not see it, they were rejoicing, that they have never seen something like that. But the old men that knew about the first one that saw it; instead of rejoicing, they fell down weeping.
7.          I thank God. If you like, sleep. If you like, do not sleep. Once I start preaching, I bet you, apart from the little ones, nobody will dose, because I have tear gas. I will spray the thing. You will keep on cleaning your face until I come down.
8.          If you doubt me now, I will open the scriptures and spray it a little on you. I know the portion of the Bible you do not believe. I know it well well. Before you got baptized into this Faith, were you not given the cost of discipleship?
9.          Were you not told that if you love your wife more than Christ, that you are not worthy to be in the Bride? Were you not told that He did not come to bring peace but a sword?
10.      That the woman will separate from the man. The man can separate from the woman. Father will be against son. Son will be against father. Daughter will be against mother. Mother will be against daughter.
11.      Man’s greatest enemies will be members of his household. Were you not told all these things, that if you want to follow me, you MUST hate your mother, hate your wife, hate your father, hate your children, hate also your own life?
12.      Some people are behaving as if they want us to say sorry. The same way Brother Ugoala was behaving in those days. Over my dead body. You have published my obituary. This is my obituary. Over my dead body. He will gulp one cup of tea. He will take bread. Rice, waaa! Over my dead body. Demonstrating until he heard a noise.
13.      IF I HEAR THIS THING FROM YOUR MOUTH AGAIN, I WILL USE THIS MICROPHONE TO BLAST YOUR HEAD. WHO ARE YOU? Then he closed his mouth. That day was a wonderful day.
14.      Brother Ugoala! The man that consoled you has left this Faith and you are still hanging. We have seen many, many things in this Faith. If not that man, Brother Ugoala wanted to leave for Aba that night because he heard something a human being has not heard.
15.      Like many are saying now, “If I knew it would be like this, I would not have come. If I knew the meeting would be like this.” Some are regretting. “This man should have stayed in the North. I do not know what brought him down.”
16.      “Before He came down, we were enjoying the Camp. Since he came down here, everywhere changed.” IT MUST REMAIN LIKE THAT BECAUSE I WANT SOMETHING GOOD TO COME OUT OF YOU. UNTIL I SEE THAT THING, MY HEART WILL NEVER SEE REST.
17.      But, why not wait, find out where I am heading to. What am I trying to achieve in you? I say, what am I trying to achieve in you? Man is very, very insincere.
18.      What I want to remove from you has been your headache. You have been complaining about that thing, but you do not know how to do away with it, because many of you consider that thing as your livewire.
19.      Let us go to the Bible straight away. Let us tell our story from the Bible. Our sister here is asking whether this Bible reading will ever finish. Will this Bible reading ever finish? Sin is very bad.
20.      How many wants this Bible to finish? Any day the Bible finishes, God has finished. If God cannot finish, Bible will never finish. There is nothing in this life that is not in the Bible. Even what will happen tomorrow is in this Bible. This mama that is dosing, I will shell you with one mortar now.
21.      Leave her alone! Do not wake her up. Let me get the bomb. Get ready for me. Leave am! Do not touch her. You think I am playing. I want to go to the Bible. Wait for me. I will shell you with one mortar now. Alleluia.
22.      All eyes this way. I want to go to the angle I will go that will keep many awake. In the afternoon, I spoke to you on ACTION TIME.
23.      Sisters, what food do you intend to prepare for tomorrow morning? What do you intend to prepare? Garri? Glory be to God. Let me hold it. I love it. We shall be eating Garri tomorrow morning to get enough strength.
24.      The Meeting will start by 9.30. The moment I come down from the pulpit, you start baking your bread for I will remain talking until 5. If I do not talk that way, nobody here is coming to the communion table.
25.      All of you that are shaking your head after hearing this Message, stop shaking your head, if you want to come to the communion table.
26.      Rather kneel down and say, “God please give me the Grace to obey you. Give me the Grace to obey you.” If I discern from among you anybody that is trying to be stubborn, I will cause you to sleep, immediately the Camp Meeting is over. Immediately the Camp Meeting is over, I bet you, 24hours, I will commit you to mother earth. Straight away.
27.      I am not happy with you. All Igbo people here. Do not think you are pleasing me. You are not pleasing me one bit. You are my headache. In this my last move; I mean my last step upon this earth, let nobody born of a woman provoke something in me.
28.      I begged you in the beginning. I will never beg you this time. You MUST bow down by force. Whether you like it or not you MUST bow down. Do not ever attempt shaking your head. If you dare say over your dead body, definitely you will die, and the promise will come to pass.
29.      Will your unbelief stop Translation? Can your unbelief change God? Who are you? Ordinary dust! Ordinary maggot! Maggot itself! Job said, “I am nothing but dust.” And can you imagine dust making noise. Do you not know that you are ordinary clay?
30.      If you are clay, the Porter has control over you. He has every right to mould you the way He wants. You cannot query Him. You cannot shake your head. If you dare shake your head, he will break you to pieces. That will not stop Him from working.
31.      This is another sober moment, because we have been selfish all these years. We have been selfish all these years, paying all the attention to ourselves alone and neglecting the Faith of our little ones as if they have been filled with the Holy Ghost, as if they are not concerned. Amen.

THE HEADSTONE MUST DIRECT YOUR FOOTSTEPS
I know your problem. When you are coming to God, you do not believe He is your God. You do not drop all pre-conceived ideas about Him.
2.          You first of all get your hearts stocked with something so that when God starts talking, if what He is saying is contrary to what you have in your heart, you find it difficult to adjust. But a wise man, while coming to God, he opens his heart.  
3.          If you know this way before, why are you here? If you have gone this road before, why are you not leading us? So, tonight, we want to tell some moonlight stories.
4.          I am going to tell you the old old story of Jesus and His love. It is a long story o! Sister Uchenna! I hope your husband will not arrest us. Sit down. He must bear rule over you. Until your eyes open; Any day your eyes are opened, you will see the extent you have strayed away.
5.          You know, a lady can be obedient to her parents in all things, but when it comes to marriage, she becomes mad, Very uncontrollable as if somebody is going to hinder her luck.
6.           Many of you sitting down here married before you came in here. MaJORITY married in disobedience. I said majority of you married in naked disobedience.
7.          You did not allow your parents to counsel you WELL. Before they could know what was happening, either your stomach is big or your bag is already on your head: “If you like, collect money. If you do not like, I am going.”
8.          I am talking of the oldest institution in the world that has been messed up. The only source God designed through which He will have Sons and Daughters. Satan messed it up from Creation, from the Garden of Eden. From that day till now, it has become increasingly impossible for mankind to make it right.
9.          Let me ask you this question: If the whole world will hear this Message you heard today and decide to obey it, don’t you think the result will be change in the face of the earth? Don’t you think the face of the earth will change? Don’t you think that God will change His mind? He will no longer wipe off mankind.
10.      I am telling you the whole truth. If all mankind will decide to obey this Message, we will remain here as our Paradise, but it is impossible for them to obey. This Message can only be obeyed in the Bride.
11.      If you are not an Elected Seed of Abraham, you can never bow down to this Message. That is why I told you, I am sent with a Message to identify Abraham’s Seeds of this age.
12.      What is the essence of dropping the Big Magnet? It is just for one purpose: To gather iron together. When magnet descends, it is not interested in very fine glass.
13.      Magnet cannot magnet glass. It is not for gold or silver. It is not for very beautiful plastic. A very fanciful Aluminium is not for the magnet.
14.      It is meant for one thing. IRON! Let that iron rust. Rust since all the ages and look very rough, magnet MUST pick it anyhow; let that iron be in the dust bin. You know what I mean by dustbin? Let that iron be Mary Magdalene of today. Let that iron be Rehab of today. Magnet MUST pick that iron.  
15.      The other beautiful beautiful plastics, gold and silver, the magnet will say No. Drop iron in Catholic, it will say no. Anglican? No! Pentecostal? No! End-time message? No! African Churches, like Cherubim and Seraphim, Sabbath? No!
16.      TRANSLATION IS REAL! THIS MESSAGE IS BRINGING DOWN THE HEADSTONE. THE HEAD STONE IS THE SUPER MAGNET. YOU MUST COME TO THE POINT WHERE THAT HEADSTONE WILL BE DIRECTING YOUR MOVEMENTS.
17.      LET ME TELL YOU WHAT I MEAN. AS THE MESSAGE IS DESCENDING, IT IS PULLING YOU GRADUALLY. AS YOU KEEP ON OBEYING, YOU ARE BEING TRANSFORMED GRADUALLY.
18.      YOU DO NOT KNOW THAT SOMETHING IS TAKING PLACE. WAIT UNTIL YOU GO OUT AFTER THE CAMP MEETING. YOU WILL FEEL LIKE VOMITING.
19.      WAIT UNTIL YOU VISIT FAMILIES OUTSIDE THIS FAITH AFTER THE MEETING. YOU WILL SEE THE LEVEL OF WORK, THE LEVEL OF TRANSFORMATION THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE IN YOUR LIFE. AND AS YOU CONTINUE, THAT HEADSTONE IS COMING DOWN.
20.      Let me demonstrate it. If you drop some pins on the ground, and then descend a very heavy magnet, the magnet will come to a point where you will see the little pins following the movement of the magnet.
21.      If the magnet is turned round, they will be following the magnet like that, even with every amount of speed. Before you know it, as you keep on dropping it, something happens. That is what is happening.
22.      The reaction is very clear in the Camp. If He moves this way, they will all move along that way. If He moves the other way, they move that way. So you are in this Camp.
23.      But if while He moves to the left, you stay where you are. He goes to the right, you are still where you are, do not worry. You will tell the world what has taken place.
24.      Do not ever make the mistake of saying over my dead body. Whatever you are hearing here is your perfection. it is your righteousness, if you do it.
25.      But if you say, “over my dead body”, you are already in hellfire, unless there are two Gods. But if we have only but One God, the One I have introduced to you, you do not have any other place you are heading to except hell.
26.      But let me help you. Why not check for yourself. What is good or what is bad in a man controlling his own house? What is bad there? I mean, morally speaking, sincerely speaking, what is wrong in a man having full control over his family?
27.      I want you to just ponder a little. You know I saw the way people were reacting now. I folded my hands. I said, God! It is not easy to save a man. They will desire the truth. When you tell them the truth, they will be troubled, because that is not the level of truth they want to hear. There is a type of truth they want.
28.      If this is not the type of truth you want, why are you here? I do not know what you heard before coming.
29.       I thank God I am not looking at your faces. I will tell you some stories; those old, old stories about Jesus and this God that will make you fine because I do not want to upset you. But along the line, anything can take place!
30.      Because in the afternoon, I showed you exactly the type of Message that was coming. And I told you what would be your reaction and you reacted that same way.
31.      If you know you have heard a Message like this before, show by raising your hand. Who will preach that Message? If you preach this Message in the Pentecostals, it will be, “To your tents, O! Israel.” If any Reverend father will say this, the whole Church will go on strike.
32.      This Message is for Men. It is for Men. When things were in their normal natural order, this is the type of Message a man wants. When the woman misbehaves the man will just throw her out with all her property.
33.      You see, it is mere pretence to say that you were pushed down by laughter. Laughter does not push anybody down. Listen to me very well if you are in this movement with me. I am the oldest man in this Church. I am the oldest man in this Congregation. I am telling you pure truth.
34.      Amongst the heathens, if a man marries a wife who becomes troublesome and uncontrollable, the man’s kinsmen will gather, take a resolution and restore the woman back to her parents. Why is it done like that? So that our Brother will live.
35.      The kindred will still gather and help him marry another wife. Was it done to honour God? It is just to save the life of their Brother that they gathered and resolved to restore the first wife back to her parents because of her troubles.
36.      Have we not spoken about this? What if you are commanded to take her back so that you will be acceptable before God, that God is angry with you for keeping His enemy in your house?
37.      Do you not know that all the children of God will gather and resolve to take this one back to her parents, so that our Brother will not go to hellfire? .
38.      Whether you believe it or not, malaria medicine is very bitter. But you must take it before the malaria will leave you. If you do not swallow it, the malaria fever will kill you. So you just clench your teeth, close your eyes and swallow the thing so that you will have peace.
39.       Brother Ugoala, you know what I am doing. I am trying to pave a way for the Message that will grant you the opportunity to marry. I am paving a way for that. People are surprised. Do not worry. You will hear something the world has not heard before.
40.      IT IS ONLY IN THIS MESSAGE THAT YOU KNOW THAT REINCARNATION IS A REALITY. THERE IS SOMETHING THAT IS HIDDEN IN THIS MESSAGE I AM PREACHING. THE THING HAD BEEN TROUBLING THE WORLD, BUT THEY DO NOT HAVE SCRIPTURAL REASONS.
41.      SOME SAY GOD LOVES IT. SOME SAY GOD IS NOT INTERESTED IN IT. BUT NOBODY CAN ESTABLISH IT FROM THE BIBLE. WHAT IS THAT THING? POLYGAMY.
42.      Some do not even know the meaning of polygamy. That day you will know that you do not know the meaning of polygamy. Any man that is living with more than one wife is a polygamist. Any man that is having more than one wife is a polygamist.
43.      WHEN THAT MESSAGE SHALL BE PREACHED, WE WILL SEE THE LEVEL OF POLYGAMY WE HAVE IN THE SOCIETY. IF A MAN JOINS HIMSELF WITH A WOMAN THAT IS NOT HIS WIFE, THE BIBLE SAYS, HE BECOMES ONE FLESH WITH THAT WOMAN, EVEN IF THAT PERSON IS A PROSTITUTE, BECAUSE AS LONG AS THE TWO ARE NAKED, THE TWO HAVE BECOME ONE FLESH.
44.      IS THAT NOT SCRIPTURE? AND ON THAT DAY WHEN ALL THE SECRETS OF MAN SHALL BE MADE MANIFEST, YOUR WIVES WILL FILE BEHIND YOU. I say your wives will file behind you. Both young and old. Married and unmarried. Sin is bad.
45.      Do you know that everything a man has done must be made manifest. That is why I am against fornication, Spiritual and physical. If you are wise, you will even vow a vow that any woman that must see my nakedness must be my wife, otherwise many people will file behind you.
46.      I am not speaking on that in this Message, because this one I call moonlight story. I will tell you many more things that are contained therein. Glory be to God.
47.      I earlier told you what I would do. I said I am going to fire you. If I use small rifle and you resist it, I will use my bomb on you. If you resist it, I will use mortar. Real mortar. Both short range and long range, so as to dislodge you from your sins.
48.      Once I see you being dislodged, I would not give you breathing space again, lest you re-group and re-enforce and fight back. When I see you carrying your bags, on the run, I will be shelling you continually with long range and short range, no breathing space. And that is what I am about to do now.
49.      I do not want that one you received in the afternoon to settle down, because if I allow you to settle down with it, if I want you to settle down, you will be thinking and thinking and thinking until you forget many many other Messages.
50.      By this afternoon’s Message, many have forgotten all the Messages they have been hearing since they came here. Nobody is remembering those Messages again as if they are not important. I can see the whole Church forming little little groups.
51.      All these Cashew trees, some were having fellowship there. I went to the bathroom, some ran into this house. No testimony. The Camp became very quiet. No noise! I love it.
52.      You see, I am going to bomb you again. I will keep on bombing you. The one you will receive this night will make you to sleep. In the morning, good morning! I will bomb you again.
53.      Good afternoon, I will bomb you, because if I give you breathing space, you will defeat me. My desire is to save all of you. How many still loves me? You love the man that is sending your wife away?
54.      It must be like this. It has been like this since all the ages. When a man of God appears on the scene, He requires no introduction. His Message introduces Him. His sword is two-edged. It cuts in front. It cuts backwards. It does not spare you. This is another ACTION TIME. It is ACTION TIME PART TWO. Amen.

CATCH THEM YOUNG
Psalms 127:3; “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” KJV.
2.          Do you know that it is only when this Message came up that we are able to understand that what women call submission is not submission? What they call submission is going to bed with their husbands, but in this Message, we saw that that is nothing in the sight of God. It is not even a sign of subjection.
3.          Thus, if that is what you have been holding all these years, “I have never said no to my husband even for one day”, you are heading to hell.  Let me go back to the Message. Glory be to God.
4.          The Bible said that children are blessings and the fruit of the womb is a reward in marriage. These children can be blessing if you train them very well. They can turn out to be a curse if you fail to train them.  
5.          I have noticed that many of you come to the Church to make tapes (cassettes). When you go home, you dump them in your shelves. You can hardly play them. Some that play find it very difficult to implement.
6.          The Bible did not say that whosoever knoweth the truth is saved, but whosoever knoweth the truth and doeth it. Only doers of the Word are saved. Hearers are not saved. Do not ever be tempted to think that I am just preaching for preaching sake.
7.          This Message has become very, very necessary now, because we are rounding off the programme. We have come to the point where we are bound to forfeit our little ones, unless there is divine intervention.
8.          Brethren from the North will be wondering why Brother is going this way. Any Message you are hearing from now MUST be obeyed immediately. I say at once. It should not be delayed, because time is against us.
9.          It should not be delayed even one bit. Time is against us. What I am doing here is just crash programme; Crash training, because unbelief kept you away for too long. You were trailing very much behind because of unbelief, doubt and laziness until time has come short.
10.      Your children will be blessings if you train them very well. They will turn out to be a curse if you fail to train them.
11.      Who is a mother? Who is a father? We MUST answer these questions. Not every woman that has children is qualified to be a mother. Not every man that has children is qualified to be a father.
12.      If having children will make a woman a mother, a mad woman is equally a mother. At times, we see some women, mad women in the market place, having children. So many of us here are even worse than those women in the market.
13.      Do you know it is an abomination, a crime against God and humanity for you to have children and refuse to train them? You are likened to a mad woman in the market. The mad woman may be better than you, because she spends time to sit down with her baby.
14.      But many of you in this most holy Faith can hardly sit down with your babies. You abandon them to the care of your maidservants and then drive off. Whatever happens to the baby, you do not care. This is applicable to fathers also.
15.      I will tell fathers their guilt, because I was a victim of that thing until God redeemed me. When men were men, women were women, in the evening hours like this, after eating, fathers will gather their little children to tell them moonlight stories.
16.      Stories about tortoise, lion, sheep and goat. Such stories contain words of wisdom. But today, the only thing they know is to tune in to television. Once they finish eating, everybody will gather around the Devil’s box, television. The man and the wife will be seated watching. The man will become the moderator, leaving the children to be clapping hands.
17.      What have we produced so far? Look at the society. Scientific crime in the society is caused by the television. I say scientific crime. Crime in the world today is not primitive crime. They have gone technical. Purely scientific. Where did they learn it? Television.
18.      Television has done more harm than good. Television is not a good property in the home of a child of God. If you are harbouring television in your house, you are God’s greatest enemy. I do not know why I mentioned it. May be someone packed his own under his bed.
19.      YOU ARE NOT A FATHER BECAUSE YOU HAVE CHILDREN. SOME MAD MEN STILL HAVE CHILDREN. THAT CANNOT MAKE A MAN TO BE A FATHER. WHO IS A FATHER? WHO IS A MOTHER?
20.      ONE THAT SETTLES DOWN TO BRING UP HIS CHILDREN IN THE FEAR OF THE LORD. I SAY, ONE THAT SETTLES DOWN, NO MATTER THE SITUATION, TO TRAIN HIS CHILDREN IN THE FEAR OF THE LORD.
21.      WHY IS IT NECESSARY? IN THE LAND OF SODOM, WHEN GOD DESTROYED IT BECAUSE OF INIQUITY, LITTLE ONES PERISHED WITH THEIR PARENTS. GOD DID NOT SPARE THEM FOR THEY WERE EQUALLY GUILTY.
22.      IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, HE DID NOT SPARE THEM. THEY WERE EQUALLY GUILTY. IN JERICHO, HE DID NOT SPARE THEM, BECAUSE THEY WERE EQUALLY GUILTY, EVEN ONE-DAY OLD. I SAY, EVEN ONE-DAY OLD. IS THAT NOT TRUE? CHECK YOUR BIBLE VERY WELL.
23.      Why did God finish them? It is because what they call a child is not a child. What makes him a child is because he cannot talk. Everything that it takes to be a normal human being is in a child from one day old. That is why when you think they are too tender, while they cannot even talk;
24.      If the mother is breast-feeding the baby, and that woman is sad, she is not happy, watch the reaction of that child. The child will look at the mother’s face and will stop sucking. Before you know it, the child will start crying and the mother will sympathise with the child by pleading with the child.
25.      And as far as the child continues to look at the mother’s face, and the mother’s face is not good, nothing will make that child to suck that breast. If he is a child, who taught him that? Why is he reacting? Brother Isaac Igwe, take note.
26.      How I wish Brother Umezulike is in the Camp. Be very, very careful about influential people in the Church. Brother Kelechi! If I were around you last night, I would have slapped you. I blame Brother Chimee seriously. He should have indicted you very well, disgraced you publicly because you were to be blamed.
27.      You know me. You know my manner of life. You also know my doctrine. You MUST catch them young. I SAY YOU MUST CATCH THEM YOUNG. If you want to catch birds, set your traps in the early hours of the morning.
28.      Is there anyone here who does not know what is called yam tendril? When the yam tendril is growing, the way you turn it is the way it will go. If you turn it to the right, it will grow to the right.  If you turn it to the left, it will go to the left.
29.      That is not all. Once the tendril becomes tough you cannot direct it any more. If you force it the way you want it to grow it will definitely break.
30.      For that reason, you MUST catch them young. If one-day old baby can react this way; Let me give another example. Watch a little child, may be of three or four months old. The moment the child is displeased, he must react. I say he must react.
31.      Wage war with the mother. No matter how you try to pacify the child, she will be making like this and will keep on crying. That is the only way she can demonstrate that she is not happy, because she cannot talk.
32.      At one year, he is growing gradually, to manifest another thing. To demonstrate his anger, he can come and grab the mother or even beat the mother, beat other people around. And if you beat that child, he will turn back and beat you. And you call that one a child.
33.      At times he will just put your hand inside his mouth and bite the hand. He is fighting with his little strength. He is fighting to the extent his strength can carry him. And you call that person a child.
34.      That is why many of you here, I have seen a lot of criminals sitting down here, if not by divine intervention. If I do not tell you this truth, I do not love you. I have seen your daughters and your sons that will disgrace you well well, put you to open shame because of your carelessness.
35.      When I come to your corner, this sleep will vanish. When I come to your corner, this sleep will vanish. I have not come to your corner yet. Go ahead sleeping. When I come to your corner, this sleep will vanish. This is because I want to identify mothers. I want to also identify fathers.
36.      IF YOU TRAIN YOUR CHILDREN VERY WELL, YOU WILL LIVE A HAPPY LIFE ALL THE DAYS OF YOUR LIFE. ALL THESE THINGS YOU CALL INFANTS, THEY ARE NOT INFANTS. THE ONLY THING IS THAT THEY CANNOT TALK.
37.      THE MOMENT YOUR CHILD COMES TO THE AGE WHERE HE KNOWS WHAT IS GOOD AND WHAT IS EVIL, WHERE HE CAN FEEL GUILTY OR FEEL OFFENDED, HE IS AT THE AGE OF ACCOUNTABILITY, AND THAT STARTS FROM ONE DAY.
38.      I say it starts from one day. From one-day old. If this case is like this, and you know my doctrine, and Bro Isaac Igwe was making a case for a grown-up that is eating chewing gum, Cham cham cham.
39.      Thank your God that I was not around and I did not hear it yesterday. Just thank your stars. You would have seen my real colour. Fulfilling the Voice that roared on him.
40.      You should be very careful. People that say they are single ones, their children are useless. WHEN YOU OVER-PAMPER YOUR CHILDREN, YOU LOSE ALL OF THEM TO HELLFIRE. YOU LOSE ALL OF THEM TO THE WIND.
41.      I TOLD YOU YESTERDAY, IF YOU ARE ASKED TO COUNT THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN YOU HAVE, COUNT ONLY THOSE THAT HAVE THE FEAR OF GOD IN THEM. I AM NOT INTERESTED IN YOUR ONE MILLION CHILDREN. IT IS BETTER YOU HAVE ONE THAT IS INTELLIGENT AND HAS THE FEAR OF GOD THAN TO HAVE ONE MILLION THAT WILL PUT YOU TO SHAME. ONE THAT HAS NO FEAR OF GOD.
42.      Where is Onyedikachukwu? Is she here? May be they are sleeping there. I AM TRYING TO EMPHASIZE ON SOMETHING. IF AT THE AGE OF SIX, YOU ARE CALLING YOUR CHILD A LITTLE KID, FORGET ABOUT THAT CHILD. THAT CHILD MUST BE A NUISANCE FOREVER.
43.      THIS IS VERY HARD TO BELIEVE. BECAUSE FROM THE AGE OF SIX, THAT IS THE TIME THE CHILD WILL MANIFEST HIS TRUE COLOURS. THERE IS NO EVIL THAT CHILD WILL NOT KNOW. EVEN STEALING. EVEN TELLING LIES. THEY WILL DO SOMETHING AND COME AND TELL GREAT LIES. AT TIMES, THEY DECEIVE ADULTS.
44.      He can swear an oath. Because when they want to deceive elders, they will crown lies with false tears, kneel down and beg and beg, and you will say, “Leave her. It is not this one.” It will take Almighty God to go and show you how the whole thing happened.
45.      LET ME GO BACK. DO YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU SAY THAT YOU ARE A FATHER, AND YOUR SON IS A HOOLIGAN, AN UNCONTROLLABLE CHILD, WHOM YOU CANNOT GIVE HIS ACCOUNT, HE DOES NOT LISTEN TO YOUR INSTRUCTION, YOUR WORD IS USELESS TO HIM, DO YOU KNOW YOU FAILED AS A FATHER? CAN A SON GROW ABOVE THE FATHER?
46.      YOU SAY YOU ARE A MOTHER AND YOUR OWN DAUGHTER BECOMES UNCONTROLLABLE, FLYING FROM PILLAR TO POST, YOU HAVE FAILED AS A MOTHER. IF WHILE YOU ARE STILL ALIVE, YOUR OWN DAUGHTER BECOMES PREGNANT IN YOUR HOUSE, YOU WEIGHED ZERO. A MAD WOMAN IN THE MARKET IS BETTER THAN YOU.
47.      It is hard to believe, because God gave us strict instruction, a very big responsibility. It is not having children that is the problem. It is facing the responsibility that is attached to those children.
48.      A lot of men here and everywhere can spend millions in training their children in the best institution in the whole world, but they can hardly settle down to cause their children to fear God.  Amen.

DILIGENTLY TEACH YOUR CHILDREN
ACTION TIME! Deuteronomy Chapter 6 from verse 4-9. “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
2.          And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children,..”
3.          And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children. From child hood, from the first word GO! How will the teaching start? Gather your children. Tell them that God is one and not two-in-one or three-in-one.
4.          “And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
5.          And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.”
6.          IT IS A STRICT COMMANDMENT FROM ALMIGHTY GOD TO ALL PARENTS. WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR CHILDREN, SETTLE DOWN, TEACH THEM IN THE PARLOUR, IN THE BEDROOM, IN THE DINNING TABLE, WHEREVER YOU FIND YOURSELF.
7.          EVEN WHEN YOU ARE WALKING ON THE STREET, TEACH THEM THAT JEHOVAH IS ONE; THAT THEY MUST WORSHIP HIM WITH ALL THEIR STRENGTH, ALL THEIR MIGHT, ALL THAT IS IN THEM. YOU DO NOT STOP THERE. WRITE THE WORD OF GOD IN THE WALLS IN YOUR HOUSE.
8.          HANG IT IN YOUR HOUSE AS POSTERS. PLACE IT EVEN ON YOUR DOOR. WHERE YOUR CHILDREN WILL READ IT WHENEVER THEY COME IN. THIS IS THE COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD.
9.          But instead of parents to do this, they will fill their houses with every type of immoral photographs. Photographs of musicians everywhere. They can hardly teach their children; instead they will take them to television. Put on television. That’s all.
10.      The man has no time. The woman has no time. Tell me how those children can have the fear of God if they are not trained. Can you blame them? Can a man neglect this instruction? Can a father, a mother, can parents neglect this instruction and still wait for Translation?
11.      What is sin? Breaking of God’s law. Is it not a commandment from the Lord? Given to parents. Have we obeyed it? How far have we carried out this instruction? Why then are we crying? My children are disturbing me. They are giving me headache. Have you settled down to do the work? Have you obeyed this scripture?
12.      When you obey this scripture, there MUST be a reward. Every instruction from the Son of Man is for our own good. If your children are hooligans, will God be troubled? Is He living with your children? .
13.      It is just like your righteousness. People think that becoming righteous that God will profit something. Or that if you obey the word of God, that God will be rejoicing. You are obeying the word of God for your own good. If you do not know this, know it from now.
14.      GOD CAN NEVER BE TROUBLED. IT IS ALL WELL WITH GOD. IF YOU OBEY, IT IS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. SOME PEOPLE THINK THAT SERVING GOD MAKES GOD REJOICE. GOD IS NOT REJOICING WITH YOUR SERVICE.
15.      YOU ARE SERVING GOD FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. GOD DOES NOT DERIVE ANYTHING FROM IT. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THIS, KNOW IT NOW.
16.      TO WHAT EXTENT HAVE WE CARRIED OUT THIS INSTRUCTION? STAYING AT HOME TO TRAIN OUR CHILDREN. FINDING TIME ENOUGH TO STAY WITH THEM. WE CAN FIND ENOUGH TIME FOR BUSINESS, TO MAKE MONEY.
17.      BUT NO TIME TO STAY IN THE HOUSE, TO LOOK INTO THE LIVES OF THESE KIDS, TO KNOW WHEN STRANGE HABITS, TO KNOW WHEN THEY HAVE ACQUIRED STRANGE HABITS, MORE ESPECIALLY NOW THAT MANY OF THEM ARE EXPOSED TO ROUGH LIFE FROM THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS.
18.      IF YOU DO NOT BEND DOWN AND LOOK INTO THEIR LIVES, HOW WOULD YOU KNOW WHEN THEY HAVE CONTACTED DISEASES AND HABITS BECAUSE THEY ARE MINGLING WITH EVERY KIND OF CHILD IN SCHOOL, HEARING EVERY KIND OF STORIES AND THEY ARE BEING INFLUENCED POSSIBLY TO FARE VERY BADLY?
19.      Many of them start stealing in the school. It starts with pencil. I say it starts with pencil. If you do not open the school bags of your children, before you know whant is happening, they have become armed robbers.
20.      If you know you bought only one pencil for your child, and when you open his bag, you see up to four, you have to ask him, “Where did you get all these? Take them back! Where is the one I bought for you?”
21.      Some parents will even take delight hearing from their children, “my fellow child took my own and I carried this one” Instead of asking the child to go back and return it, “Go and look for your own! Collect your own.” They will say, “Well it is one-one.”
22.      You are encouraging that child to go ahead stealing. Rearing of children is very, very important in the sight of God. That is why, from the beginning, God enshrined it in the law and MUST be passed unto them.
23.      To what extent have we trained our children before we start complaining? Have we carried out this instruction? Many abandoned their children at the hands of the maids.
24.      The maid will do the cooking, bath them and do everything. Is it the maid that will sit down and teach your children? Who then will teach the maid? I am coming to that. You will see how you spoil your children. You succeed in training another man’s child and your own children will be useless.
25.      I HAVE SAID IT TIMES WITHOUT NUMBER THAT ANY WOMAN THAT STARTS HAVING CHILDREN WITH A DAUGHTER, MAIDS DO NOT LAST IN HER HOUSE, IF SHE IS A WISE WOMAN. BUT IF SHE IS A FOOLISH WOMAN, MAID WILL SPOIL HER FAMILY.
26.      IF YOU EXPOSE YOUR MAID TO EVERY KIND OF JOB IN YOUR HOUSE, BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, YOU HAVE SUCCEEDED IN TRAINING THAT MAID VERY WELL IN EVERYTHING.
27.      THE MOMENT SHE IS MARRIED, MANNING THE KITCHEN WILL NOT BE A PROBLEM AGAIN. AUTOMATICALLY SHE HAS KNOWN HOW TO PREPARE EVERYTHING BECAUSE SHE LEARNT IT FROM HER MADAM.
28.      BUT YOUR OWN CHILDREN, TELL THEM TO COME AND POUND FUFU, THEY WILL START WEEPING; WASH YOUR PLATES, THEY WILL WEEP. SCRUB THE FLOOR, TROUBLE. WHAT SPOILT THEM? MAID.
29.      MOTHERS! RISE UP! FATHERS! RISE UP! Some of you that do not want your children to touch anything in the house, you are doing them more harm than good. I say you are doing them more harm than good. You do not want your children to touch anything in the house. All these little children, hear me.
30.      Whether you are male or female, if your parents are of that type, that cannot allow you to touch anything in the house, they want you to seat in the parlour, when food is ready you come and eat, they are spoiling you. They do not love you.
31.      Force yourself into everything in the house. One day, you will leave your father’s house and you will go somewhere. Your father will not be there. Your mother will not be there. If you fail to learn those things in your father’s house, who will teach you there?
32.      That is why many of you find it difficult to leave there father’s house to go to any of your brothers or sisters to stay. Just go there and stay two days.
33.      They will run back with complaints that there is so much work there. They do not allow us to rest there. We go to bed by twelve midnight and wake up very early in the morning. And then, your parents will say, welcome! You did well by coming back. Blind Parents!
34.      I wonder what those children will look like in this life. I do not care who and who are your parents. If you are born with gold spoons in your mouth, change it immediately to plastic spoon.
35.      The Bible said that the crown does not last eternally and riches can never endure forever. Who were the first set of people that died during the civil war? Children from such families that were not exposed to harsh labour. Just one week, kwashiorkor killed all.
36.      Agric children! I call them Agric. Keep them in the house from morning till night, they do not know how to sweep the parlour. They do not know how to keep the environment clean.
37.      Rather be in the bed and be giving instructions to the maid. The maid may be by far senior to them. Their parents will be there, even commanding the maid to obey. You are blind parents. I say, you are blind parents.
38.      Do not worry. Any seed a man soweth, that he shall reap. Glory be to God. We will know whether we have succeeded or failed, you are waiting for Translation. “I thought Translation would have occurred last month. I thought that from this Camp Meeting we would not go back.” How prepared are you?
39.      Have you obeyed the instructions of God? Have you made yourself ready? How ready are your children? Wild life starts with chewing gum among the female ones. I say wild life.  
40.      If your children start life with chewing gum, you have forfeited all of them. Not even one will have shamefacedness. You will be hearing kim-kim-kim. You will be talking to your child and the child will be chewing kim-kim-kim.
41.      Instead of using very big rod to hit that one, you will even buy more. Buy more of those chewing gum. You think it is a child.
42.      If somebody was baptized at the age of 7 years by revelation, and he is just in Elementary 3, is there any justification for somebody in JSS 1? What of Elementary 6? Any justification? Glory be to God. Amen.

TRAIN YOUR CHILDREN WHEN THERE IS HOPE

We are set for a sign. Let me go forward. I want to back up what I am saying. Deuteronomy 11:18-20. God emphasized greatly on the training of children.
2.          Remember I am talking to you on ACTION TIME, PART 2: TRAINING OF CHILDREN, so that you know whether you have failed in your responsibility. I know many of you heard the Message this afternoon.
3.          The moment I get home now, I will take action. Now it is landing on you. It is not your wife. This one now is wilful neglect, wilful omission to carry out God’s instruction to you as a father and as a mother.
4.          You were blaming your wife in the afternoon. This time God is telling you that that is not the only problem. You can send your wife away and still perish. You can send your wife away because she is not following you to serve this God and still perish.
5.          Why? Because you have vowed a vow that you will never carry out God’s instructions; you will never obey God’s commandment. Let me ask you this question. How many commandments of God will a man break and be guilty? One! You have answered very well.
6.          Deuteronomy 11:18, “Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
7.          And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8.          And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:” .
9.          God still emphasizing on the training of children. Is it vain repetition? Do we call it vain repetition? God is laying emphasis there. He is showing you the sanctity of training your children in the fear of the Lord. 
10.      Fill your houses with the word of God. Ask your children to sit down. Use scriptures to transform them. Make them useful citizens that will fear God and worship God.
11.      Without God in all these children, we are losing all of them to hellfire. I am telling you naked truth. Any child that disobeys her parents, will God justify that child at the last stage? Ok.
12.      And you know how many disobedient children you are raising in your houses and they are also waiting for Translation.  When we came here, we say we are too many. We count both the living and the dead.
13.      YOU ARE NOT A CHILD OF GOD BECAUSE YOUR FATHER IS A PASTOR OR THAT YOUR FATHER IS AN APOSTLE OR THAT YOUR FATHER IS A PROPHET. THAT DOES NOT QUALIFY YOU TO BE A CHILD OF GOD. YOU MUST WRITE THE WORD OF GOD AS POSTERS, HANG IT THE WALLS OF YOUR HOUSE.
14.      Every accursed thing must be removed from your eyes. But unfortunately, some men do not supervise their houses very well. Bro. Okechukwu Paul! Do you know what I removed at Owerri? I entered one of the rooms where we slept. Bro Isaac! You are to be blamed so much.
15.      I do not know where you were. From your records, you were in the Pentecostal. You were a pastor. Where were you when your son grew up above you? I saw a horrible thing.
16.      A picture that was craftily cut out from either a calendar; it is as a calendar. A man and a woman kissing. That one was craftily carved out and pasted where somebody will be fixing his eyes there inside the little boy’s room.
17.      I called Bro Okey and said, “Come and see. Naked picture. This boy cannot even place posters befitting of a child of God. You see how they craftily cut out this picture. How will their hearts be pure? Placing it in such a way that he will be in the bed and be watching it.”
18.      I simply went there, removed it, went to their parlour and removed the main calendar, then put all of them in my booth. Let me tell you. You have made the greatest mistakes of your life by coming into contact with me and have received my seal of approval by laying hand on you as a minister. This is the greatest mistake you have made.
19.      Because you have roped yourself into something you cannot wriggle out. I said that you have roped yourself into something you can never wriggle out. So, you better start adjusting immediately.
20.      If you think you can wriggle out, you have to tell me the way or you try and see whether you can wriggle out. Bro Ben have you wriggled out? .
21.      I just thank God. If the present stage of the Ministry now was the stage of the Ministry at Abagana, at the beginning of the Ministry, Bon Diuka would not have wriggled out. Even till now, has he wriggled out? I say, has he wriggled out?
22.      All of you that use to see him. Have you not seen him? What did you seen? THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE PERSON THAT TASTED THIS TRUTH THAT HAS WRIGGLED OUT OF IT. SO, YOU BETTER START ADJUSTING IMMEDIATELY.
23.      RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS A NATION. SIN IS A REPROACH TO ANY NATION. A VERY WISE AND PRUDENT CHILD WILL ALWAYS MAKE THE PARENTS TO REJOICE, BUT A WILD CHILD, A WILD CHILD IS ALWAYS A DISGRACE ON THE PARENTS. HE CAN NEVER ALLOW THE PARENTS TO HOLD THEIR HEADS HIGH IN THE SOCIETY.
24.      How will this question be asked? When a mother will be asked where she was when her daughter grew up above you like this. What will such a mother give as an answer? Woman! Where were you? look at your daughter.
25.      Man! Where were you when your little son grew up above your authority? Then, you start clapping hands, that boy is too smart. That boy is too smart. That is another Eli. I say, another Eli.
26.      Let me go back to the Bible. Let us see whether God who commanded us to train our children, whether He showed us the way. I love God for something. When He commands you to do something, he will tell you the way you will do it. He will give you the materials to enable you to achieve the desired results.
27.      Let us go to the Book of Proverbs Chapter 13 verse 24: “He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.” KJV.
28.      “If you do not punish your son, you do not love him. If you do love him, you will correct him.” GNB.
29.      “He who spares his rod [of discipline] hates his son, but he who loves him disciplines diligently and punishes him early.” AMP
30.      God has come to help us. All of you here that have vowed a vow that you will never discipline your children, God is saying that you hate them. Where are these little ones?
31.      IF YOU HAVE A FATHER WHO SAYS HE LOVES YOU, ONLY TO ACCOMMODATE YOU, EVEN WHEN YOU ARE DOING EVIL, HE WILL NOT TALK TO YOU, HE WILL NOT INDICT YOU, HE WILL NOT DISCIPLINE YOU, THAT YOUR FATHER IS A WICKED FATHER. HE IS YOUR GREATEST ENEMY. HE IS GIVING YOU FALSE LOVE.
32.      Where are Sister Umezulike’s daughters? Where are they? Are they sleeping? Come in front. Where is the other one? Get me that one. Very soon you will become mothers. Even from now, you are all potential mothers. Sit down here. Bring the other one this place.
33.      I will be parading here. You were sleeping. Come and sit down here! If it is craftiness, you will manifest it 100%.
34.      THIS MESSAGE THAT IS BEING CALLED GLORIOUS MESSAGE BY EVERYBODY MUST PRODUCE GLORIOUS CHILDREN. IF OUR MESSAGE IS GLORIOUS, OUR CHILDREN MUST BE GLORIOUS. IF OUR MESSAGE IS UNCHALLENGEABLE, OUR CHILDREN MUST BE UNCHALLENGEABLE. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
35.      All you children! Especially three of you, the Bible said, “Any man that does not discipline his own children is a wicked man. He hates his children.”
36.      So, all of you here, that claim you are children; If your father or your mother is of the type that will close his or her mouth and become dumb dog, no matter the evil you commit, he will close his mouth.
37.      If it is reported to him, he will not take any action. He will not even make any enquiry. That is manifestation of hatred. He is saying, “To hell with you. Afterall, how many years have I to live on earth.”
38.      A REAL FATHER TAKES HIS TIME TO FIND OUT HIS CHILDREN’S BEHAVIOUR. IF HE IS NOT CERTAIN ABOUT THEIR BEHAVIOUR, HE MUST DISCIPLINE THEM, ASK THEM SERIOUS QUESTIONS, TAKE DRASTIC MEASURES, AT LEAST TO JUSTIFY YOURSELF IN THE SIGHT OF GOD, THAT YOU ARE NOT DISOBEDIENT TO GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS, THAT YOU HAVE DONE YOUR BEST.
39.      But when you fold your hands, and pamper your children, you spoil all of them. Let me just tell you something. DO YOU KNOW THAT IF A MAN SPENDS ALL HIS LIFE TO TRAIN HIS CHILDREN IN THE HIGHEST INSTITUTION IN THE WORLD, WITHOUT MORAL DISCIPLINE, THOSE CHILDREN WILL STILL REMAIN HOOLIGANS? .
40.      Proverbs Chapter 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” KJV
41.      Proverbs 19:18: “Chasten thy son while there is hope,” While there is still hope.  “and let not thy soul spare for his crying.” KJV
42.      Let not thy soul spare for his crying.
43.      Discipline your son while there is hope, but do not [indulge your angry resentments by undue chastisements and] set yourself to his ruin.” AMP
44.      “Discipline your children while they are young enough to learn. If you do not, you are helping them to destroy themselves.” GNB.
45.      Train your children when there is hope. Discipline them when there is hope. Do not allow their crying to hinder you from disciplining them. There are some very bad children.
46.      Before you raise a stick, they have started shouting already. Daddy oo! I am dead oo! And then you drop the stick on the ground. You are not a good father. You are not a god mother.
47.      FATHERS! I AM TALKING TO YOU IN PARTICULAR. YOU MUST COME TO A POINT WHERE YOU WIELD SUCH AN INFLUENCE IN YOUR FAMILY TO THE POINT THAT IF YOUR CHILDREN ARE MISBEHAVING, AND THEIR MOTHER THREATENS THEM BY TELLING THEM THAT SHE WILL REPORT THEM TO THEIR FATHER, THEY WILL COME BACK TO THEIR MOTHER PLEADING.
48.      But some of you here, you have so spoilt your children that whenever you see your wife flogging them, that woman is automatically in trouble. LET ME TELL YOU THE MOST UNFORTUNATE THING THAT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU. ANY DAY YOUR CHILDREN DISCOVER THAT YOU LOVE THEM SO MUCH, THAT YOU DO NOT WANT ANY BODY TO TOUCH THEM, YOUR CHILDREN ARE GONE. THEY ARE GONE. No more!
49.      Touch that child. She will just run to the father. And the father will give the child false security and will even have the privilege or audacity and the power to come before the wife to warn her before the children. How can they obey that woman again?
50.      “I am telling you. Take time about these children. look! I have the strength o! If you do not want us to quarrel in this house. If you want to try me, try it.” The children are gone. I say, they are gone. No hope again. Let me ask you this question.
51.      WHY SHOULD YOU GIVE YOUR CHILDREN SUCH FALSE SECURITY? DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT THE INTENTION OF YOUR WIFE TOWARDS THE CHILDREN MUST BE YOUR OWN INTENTION? THE IDEA IS NOT TO KILL BUT TO CORRECT.
52.      SO, FOR THAT REASON, WHATEVER THAT CHILD DOES, AND THE MOTHER FLOGS HER, IF YOU ARE AROUND, YOU OUGHT TO SUPPORT THE MOTHER.
53.      THAT IS WHY IF MY WIFE FLOGS ANY OF THEM, AND THEY WILL RUN TO ME, I WILL ADD MY OWN STROKE AS A CONFIRMATION. I WILL EVEN BEAT THAT CHILD HARDER THAN HER MOTHER.
54.      That is why if they commit any offence and hear, “I will report you to Daddy”, you see them begging, “Mummy Please! Do not report. I will not do it again. I will not do that again”. But if when they escape from their mother, they run back to you, you gather them, you say, “Come this way. Come this way. Leave them. Leave them.” No more.
55.      A little while, they will be having the impression that their mother hates them. It is applicable to fathers also. Your husbands have good intentions towards the children.
56.      You do not love the children more than your husband. If your husband is chastising them, it is for your own good. Support the man. Do not call the man a wicked man.
57.      That he is transferring the wickedness he has for you on the children. Some will even go about holding the man on the waist. 
58.      How I wish every man here will behave like me. If you know what I mean, you will be happy. You can verify from my wife and the sisters in my house.
59.      There was one day one of them misbehaved, I carried the rod. Their mother wanted to plead. I said, “Do not plead on this matter.” She wanted to intercede.
60.      I said, “If you do not want me to beat this child then take it.” Waa! Waa! Waa! She gave way. I took them to the bedroom. Waa! Waa! Waa!, until I was satisfied. She said, Oya! Go and kill her. I said, “Let me kill her.” Let me kill her.
61.      If you are not a man, because your wife is saying, ‘do not flog her’ and for that reason, you withhold the rod, you are a boy. You do not have a target. I say, you do not have a target. But if you have a target, you put the children in good shape so that they will not be a disgrace to you. Nobody will be on your way.
62.      It is not having children that matters. It is settling down to train them and to put the fear of God in them from childhood. The Bible said, “Train your children when there is hope, when they are young enough to learn.”
63.      In other words, a time may come when there will be no more hope. They may not learn again. Anything they have purposed in their heart, they must do it. No matter how you talk, they must surely do it. And at that age, no more! Your rebuke is nothing.
64.      Train your children when they are young; young enough to learn. Do not fail to discipline them. Do not withhold the rod. Keep it by your side.
65.      Everywhere is silent. Nobody is saying Amen. Nobody is saying, “It is truth.” as if I am the writer of the Bible.
66.      God who gave the instruction that we must train our children is now telling us how we should train them. If we fail to carry out this instruction, are we waiting for Translation? We are wasting our time. Your wilful neglect to carry out this instruction can stop you from going anywhere. You think God will by-pass one Word. Every scripture must be fulfilled by the Bride. Amen.

CHASTEN YOUR CHILDREN
It is ACTION TIME. Do not allow Satan to fool you. You may say, “Let him be talking what he is talking. When a man goes home he should know how to control his home.”
2.          If you are controlling your home in any other way than the way Almighty God prescribed, you are a pagan. Your inclusion into the Ministry profits you nothing. You are just wasting your time here.
3.          I KNOW VERY WELL THAT THE MOMENT THE CAMP MEETING IS OVER, MANY SITTING DOWN HERE WILL NO LONGER REMAIN IN THIS FAITH. I KNOW THAT VERY WELL AND I WILL GIVE GOD GLORY BECAUSE I WANT TO SHED MY WEIGHT. THE SMALLER THE NUMBER, THE LESSER THE HEADACHE.
4.          It is easier to perfect three people than to perfect one million. I will only grudge when you leave the Camp, if you are paying me or if you are paying me tithe. I will be thinking that your exit will reduce the amount of money we use to collect.
5.          But as long as we are preaching without charge, and we will never think of charging anybody, your exit means nothing.
6.          I am helping you so that by tomorrow, or January 1, when you go, when you go, abandon the Faith and go to another faith you want that will not disgrace you. Alleluia!
7.          I, first of all, told you the source. It was made manifest. You saw HIM very well. You permitted HIM to talk. You all agreed. Now talk and we will hear. HE is talking now. I say HE is talking.
8.          All these years, we have been very, very selfish, paying greater attention to our selves, fasting and praying, waiting for Translation, when we have not cared for our children, about their spiritual growth and they are growing wilder every day, hardening every day, marrying more evil everyday and covering it up with craftiness.
9.          Do you know it requires a very careful man of God that has discerning spirit to detect evil in his house? If his children are of the age of six and above, they will learn to conspire against him. They will commit serious crime, discuss it among themselves and seal it up. Keep on asking them. They will fool you very well.
10.      When they come home, because there is no hope again, they have become of the same age with you; In the house, they will give you the impression that they are all angels.
11.      The moment they step out, watch them. They will just mix up with the society. No change. You can hardly believe they came out from the home of a man of God. When they are coming back to their family, they carry ONLY BELIEVE in their hands.
12.      Who caused it? Careless parents. Is it a good report that when your children come back to your house, they become children of God, but when they get back to school, they become pagans? Is it a good report? 
13.      In other words, you cannot testify about the character of your child within and without. It is a dangerous development. Let us accept that we have failed as fathers and as mothers.
14.      Some of you sitting down here, your little ones, even below the age of ten are troubling you so greatly and you do not know what to do, but the rod is there. You hide it.
15.      You go to super market, you buy every amount of candy, place it on the table. LET ME SOUND THIS WARNING. IT IS A VERY BIG ABOMINATION TO ALLOW YOUR LITTLE ONES TO KNOW THE CONTENT OF ANY BOTTLE WHEN THE CHILD IS BELOW TWO YEARS. How many believe this to be truth?
16.      If you allow your little ones to know the content of any bottle when they are too tender, you have spoilt them. They will disgrace you. when strangers come to your house, and you serve them Fanta soft drink, they will rush and bring a cup. If you refuse giving them, they will fall down and start rolling on the ground. I am telling you naked truth.
17.      ANOTHER WAY YOU SPOIL YOUR CHILDREN. YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING THEM GOOD. FEED YOUR CHILDREN VERY WELL. GIVE THEM DELICIOUS FOOD. ALLOW THEM TO GO TO THEIR CORNER.
18.      WHEN YOU WANT TO EAT WITH YOUR WIFE, DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CHILDREN TO COME TO THAT TABLE TO DEEP THEIR HAND IN YOUR SOUP. SOME OF YOU THINK YOU ARE TRAINING YOUR CHILDREN BY ALLOWING THEM TO DEEP THEIR HANDS IN YOUR SOUP LIKE THAT.
19.      Before you know it, when strangers come to your house, you serve them food, they will come and sit down on the table with their eyes on the table. If you come to bring them out, they will refuse.
20.      Some stubborn ones will rise up and change his position, until your visitors will be telling you to leave them alone that they are still little children.
21.      But once they give the child a lump of meat from the soup, you see the child glorying like a small dog. It is not a laughing matter. Let us be very careful, otherwise we are forfeiting these little ones to the devil.
22.      ANOTHER WAY YOU SPOIL YOUR CHILDREN IS TO ARM THEM WITH MONEY BECAUSE MONEY IS FLOWING. In the morning, the little child will refuse food. The mother will call her, “since you do not want to eat food. Oya! take this ten naira, during break buy anything.” That child will never eat in the house in the morning.
23.      The child will prefer money, because money gives him the opportunity to buy whatever he wants. Anytime the mother fails to give her that money, before going to school, he will try in one way or the other to search the bags of other little ones to make sure he gets the money or even try to steal money from the house.
24.      The Bible said, “A child that steals his father’s money or property and concludes that it is his father’s property, is no better than a criminal.” He is no better than a criminal.
25.      A child that deeps hand into the soup pot, steals small small money, steals biscuits in the shop saying that it belongs to his mother or his father, is not better than an armed robber. There is no difference between that child and an armed robber.
26.      A good day starts with sunshine. Everybody should be very careful. God is now trying us by all our doctrines.
27.      If God did not give us SEVEN STEPS FOR TRAINING CHILDREN, we would have had an excuse, but from the very beginning, He handed it down to us as a doctrine in the Church.
28.      How many have obeyed it? The Church ignored it. And you are waiting for Translation. Let us see where you are going? Let us go back to the Bible.
29.      Do not spoil your children. Do not spare the rod. Do not ever say that they are too small: “They are too small. When they grow up, they will line up.”
30.      Those that have grown up, have they changed? I say, those that have grown up, have they changed? And you are consolidating the one that is coming up again to go the same devilish way. Parents spoil their children and turn round to blame God.
31.      DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR CHILDREN TO ROUGH LIFE. IT IS VERY DANGEROUS.  
32.      Proverbs 22:15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.” KJV
33.      “Children just naturally do silly careless things, but a good spanking will teach them how to behave” GNB
34.      Proverbs 20:11: “Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.”
35.      Foolishness is bound in the heart of children. The rod of correction drives it far. That is, if it is applied. If it is applied. But if it is not applied, can the foolishness be driven out? It will remain there.
36.      THERE IS ANOTHER CRIME PARENTS ARE COMMITTING. THEY HAVE GROWN-UP MAIDS IN THE HOUSE. THEY HAVE GROWN-UP SISTERS. THEY CAN HARDLY TOLERATE THEIR MAIDSERVANTS FLOGGING THEIR CHILDREN WHEN THEY HAVE DONE WRONG. IT IS ABOMINATION.
37.      Why are they grown-ups, if they cannot correct your children when your children are wrong? What are they doing in the house then? But some parents will be so foolish and blind and even encourage their children to insult and disgrace their maids and even Sisters living with them publicly before them.
38.      Instead of teaching them how to respect and honour Elders, they will teach them how to resist elders. God bless you for waking them up. All of them, big big men. Boy yoyo! Boy yoyo! These are potential fathers.
39.      If you ever witness their evil activity, you will run away. All these little things you are seeing here are filled with craftiness and all manner of deceits. There is nothing these children do not know. The only thing they do not know is obeying God.
40.      When it comes to the Word of God, they fall asleep, but when it comes to doing evil they will be awake. Play music or put on the video, they will be awake till daybreak. Speak the Word of God, everybody will lie down in sleep. May God have mercy on this generation.
41.      Do you know that some parents encourage their little ones even to attend parties? Even to attend wake-keeping. Do you know that? They encourage them to go. You are exposing your children to rough life, yet your Bible is against party spirit.
42.      The Bible is against banqueting and you are exposing your children to such life and tomorrow you want them to be useful children. How can that be? You MUST know your children to the point that you know the type of children they mix with.
43.      If you notice they are mixing with ungodly children, STOP THEM! Evil communication spoils good character. There is no way your children will mingle with bad friends without being spoilt.
44.      Foolishness is bound in the hearts of children, but the rod of correction drives it far, drives it out, if it is applied. If it is applied.
45.      There is one scripture I use to read in the Book of Job. Job prayed a prayer. He said, “God help me in every situation I find myself. Do not allow me to be like Adam, who covered his own sin in his bosom.”
46.      At times, parents cover their sins in their bosom. When you cover the sin in your bosom, your bosom will be like that of Eli. And the Church will throw you out as a naked unbeliever.
47.      BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT INFLUENTIAL MEN AND WOMEN IN THE CHURCH. TELL THEM THE TRUTH. NO MATTER THE AMOUNT OF GIFTS THEY GIVE YOU, NO MATTER WHAT YOU RECEIVE FROM THEM, TELL THEM THE TRUTH, OTHERWISE GOD WILL REQUIRE THEIR BLOOD FROM YOUR HAND.
48.      Mothers! Rise up! Fathers! Rise up! If your children misbehave, discipline them well well. If your husband comes back and runs mad with you, report it to the Church.
49.      You will know he is a stark unbeliever and then, get ready to part. I say, get ready to part and enter the Kingdom of God to allow him to eat what he has prepared.
50.      I am sounding like this because it is very common with men than women. Women are guilty, but one side. One side, in the sense that they are always their children’s counsellor and they spoil their children with bad advice.
51.      We will touch that a little. I know I am hated today. This storm will continue.
52.      If you avoid me this night, when you come here tomorrow morning, you will meet me here. So, you better start adjusting until it becomes your way of life. Thus, if you come and see another preacher, you will rejoice a little. Do not pray you would not see me in this pulpit o!
53.      If you are praying that I should not come to the pulpit, you are praying that you should go to hell. You are just like somebody that committed sin and will kneel down in his house and say, “God, I am going to Church. Do not allow anybody to mention my name. Please do not expose me.” What you are saying is, “God, I want to go to hell.”  
54.      Do not cover the sins of your children. If they become stubborn, and defy instructions, bring them before the elders of the Church. We will flog hell out of them. Church at Onitsha, do we do it here?
55.      Bring them before the Elders. We will flog hell out of them. Have you flogged many? I do not know what you teach in your Churches. Jerusalem is good! Jerusalem is good! We take our time to obey God’s laws, to put it into practice. We do not just preach it from the pulpit and stop there. We bend down and make sure it is enforced.
56.      I am still going. God is still showing us how to train them, the materials we must use. Until I finish with that, I will not show you families that refuse to carry out these instructions.
57.      I will show you from the Bible, families that refused these instructions and what they got as their reward so that if you fail, the same reward awaits you. Why are you not having rest in your house? Is it not because you failed as a father? When you are going home after the Meeting now, your legs are shaking. Amen.

DO NOT OVER PAMPER YOUR CHILDREN
Proverbs 17:6: Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.” KJV.
2.          Proverbs 29:15-19; “The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame. When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.
3.          Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul. Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not answer.”  KJV.
4.          Why will the wicked multiply? It is because the parents refused to train them. When you refuse to train your children, you MUST increase the number of wicked people in the society. You give preachers headache.  
5.          Now let me take you to the Bible fully. Let me show you the particular family that God used to warn parents.
6.          1 Samuel 3:11-14 read in Igbo first. “And the LORD said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle.
7.          In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house: when I begin, I will also make an end.
8.          I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; Because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not.
9.          Punishment shall be meted out to Eli’s family. It is not because of the iniquity which he knoweth not but the one he knows well well, about which God has warned him severally concerning his sons. And Eli did not do anything to stop them.
10.      God punishing the house of Eli because of the sins of the sons of Eli which Eli knew very well. God warned him several times, “Look at your children. You are not training them well! The way they are growing up, I do not like it! I do not like their character!”
11.      Eli paid deaf ears. With weak insincere warning; “These children, hearken unto what I have been telling you every time. This thing you are doing is not right. God does not want it.” Is that what the Bible said concerning that? No! Glory be to God.
12.      At times when you remember that it is said that you should warn your children, you say, “This your ear that does not hear anything, one day I will pull it out.” Is that what God said? The axe is laid to the root of the trees.
13.      Any moment from now we will get to our destination. When we get there, we will take stock of those that made it to the end. When we get there, we will count those we met. Many names are missing it. God said, “I will punish your family.”
14.      1 Samuel 3:14, “And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering forever.” KJV .
15.      Now I want to give you a little background. Eli was a Pastor in the house of God in Shiloh. A pastor ordained of God. He has children. The two sons were raping women in the temple.
16.      They were behaving very badly inside the temple and outside the temple. The Bible said that the characters of Eli’s children became so scandalous that the people of Israel stopped coming to worship.
17.      Can you imagine the characters of the children of the Pastor of the Church are now scaring worshippers away. Is it not a horrible thing? Pastor, whose house should be exemplary, whose children should be exemplary, because the family of a servant of God MUST be exemplary.
18.      Charity begins at home. If the pastor cannot pastor his house, how can he pastor the children of God? It is a horrible thing. As the children continued to become wild, manifesting every kind of recklessness and stubbornness, their father could not restrain them.
19.      What caused it? He neglected God’s instruction like Solomon. Now that the children have become adults, mere shouting could not restrain them from evil, because he did not start training them while they were young.
20.      Pastor’s children! That should be the envy of every other person. But they are wild. Look at chapter 2 verse 12. 1 Samuel 2:12; “Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD.” KJV.
21.      “The sons of Eli were scoundrels. They paid no attention to the Lord.” GNB.
22.      “The sons of Eli were base and worthless;” Were base and worthless children. They did not know or regard the Lord.” AMP.
23.      They did not know and regard the law. God means nothing to them. They have no respect for God. Pastor’s children! Who can believe this? The Bible said they are children of Belial. They know not the Lord.
24.      Priest of God begetting sons of Belial. The priest in the House of God who is entrusted with souls in his hand for salvation and for Translation, but his own children are sons of the Devil.
25.      People who do not regard the Lord. The word of God does not mean anything to their ears. If your children do not listen to you, who then will listen to you?
26.      He that desires to be a Pastor, the Bible said he desires a good thing and he is a man that can control his children and his entire family to the fulfilment of the word of God. For if a man cannot control his family, how can he control the household of God?
27.      See the report. The Bible said, “What agreement has God with Belial?” And these children are sons of Belial. They knew not the Lord.
28.      The sons of Eli were base and worthless; They did not know or regard the Lord.” God have mercy! The children of a priest of God are very bad people. They know not Jehovah. Why is it that the children of the priest knew not God?
29.      It is because he never took time to espouse his children to the Lord God. He did not instil the fear of God into his sons. A man that could bring up some other people to the fear of the Lord, can stay in the pulpit, shout and scream, yet he could not bend his children. Did he not fail in the sight of God?
30.      And God took an oath and said, “No amount of sacrifice or offering that will make me not to wipe off Eli and his family forever and ever.” THE STUBBORNNESS OF YOUR CHILDREN CAN CAUSE GOD TO TAKE AN OATH AGAINST YOUR FAMILY.
31.      THE STUBBORNNESS OF YOUR CHILDREN, YOUR WILFUL NEGLECT TO TRAIN YOUR CHILDREN IN THE FEAR OF GOD CAN WIPE OFF YOUR ENTIRE HOUSEHOLD. When God takes an oath against your family, it is all over.
32.      How we ought to take this matter serious, because it is ACTION TIME. Why am I saying what I am saying? Why is it necessary now than ever? It is the hour of manifestation of the sons and daughters of God.
33.      How many will like their children to be in the number? If you know you will like your children to be in that number, show by raising up your hand. Little little ones here, how many of you will like to be in this number?
34.      How many of you here will like to answer sons and daughters of God? Show by raising your hands. Hands down. Hands down. Some are not even sure. They are behaving like the little child that went to school and then their teacher said, “If you would like to go to heaven, show by raising your hand.”
35.      All the children raised their hands. One said, no. The teacher asked him the question, “Why did you not raise your hand?” He said, “My mother told me to come back and eat. I did not eat before going to school.”
36.      The mother instructed him to run home immediately school dismisses so as to eat, because he did not eat before going to school.  And because of this, he does not want to go to heaven yet.
37.      Do not blame the child. Brethren this matter is serious. If after labouring here on earth to raise up these little ones, we spend our money and our time and at the end of this life, we part with them, we cannot meet one in eternity, shall we be grateful then that we laboured in vain?
38.      Let me tell you. There is no other way God can save your children except by obedience to this Gospel truth. There is no other way God can save your children except by their own obedience to this truth. Help them to understand what I am saying.
39.      We are not having another Bible. Watch Eli. He could not control his family. He could not control his children. When the wrath of God came, what happened? God killed Eli. God killed the Pastor. Killed his sons. Killed his wife.  Finished the whole family.
40.      Who caused it? The stubbornness of the children. And their parents closed their eyes and continued to pamper them instead of starting to do the work early.
41.      Let me help you a little. If you find out that pride has set into your child, what will you do? Whoever that knows the answer should go ahead and answer. If you find out that pride has set into your child, what will you do?
42.      Yes! What will you do? You send him to another family? You are transferring your headache to another person. You flog the child? Glory be to God.
43.      NOW, LET ME HELP YOU. IF YOU NOTICE THAT ANY OF YOUR CHILDREN, MALE OR FEMALE, HAS DEVELOPED TO THE POINT THAT PRIDE HAS ENTERED HIS HEAD, RUSTICATE HIM IN THE HOUSE. I SAY, RUSTICATE HIM IN THE HOUSE FOR AT LEAST ONE FULL YEAR. (Rusticate: make to look like a common villager, withdraw all rights and privileges and isolate)
44.      I SAY, RUSTICATE THAT CHILD IN THE HOUSE FOR AT LEAST ONE FULL YEAR. CLOSE YOUR EYES. CLOSE YOUR EARS. IF HE FAILS TO COME BACK BEGGING, RUSTICATE HIM FOR ANOTHER YEAR. IF HE FAILS TO COME BACK BEGGING, SEND HIM OUT AS AN APPRENTICE.
45.      IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO SWALLOW. I SAY, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO SWALLOW. THE GREATEST MISTAKE YOU WILL MAKE IN YOUR LIFE IS TRAINING A CHILD THAT IS WISER THAN YOU.
46.      WHEN YOU TRAIN YOUR CHILD THAT IS WISER THAN YOU, YOU HAVE ALREADY COMMITTED SUICIDE. YOU WILL EVEN REGRET HAVING THAT CHILD.
47.      You know this is hard truth. What I am saying is not meant for everybody, because not everybody will receive my sayings. It is meant for a special set of people.
48.      I am speaking to real sons and daughters of God. I am not speaking to make believers. TO BE COMPASSIONATE IS TO DO THE WILL OF GOD.
49.      Let me show you another man. Hear his report. A man that ruled the people of God, judged them, but could not control his family.
50.      1 Samuel Chapter 8 verse 1-6; “And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel. Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beer-sheba.
51.      His sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment. Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,
52.       And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. But the thing displeased Samuel” .
53.      Who does not know about Samuel? A man of God. Look at the children. You see the report following his children? A man of God whose children would have been exemplary, see what the people are reporting about them.
54.      People rejected them from being judges in Israel. They walked not in the ways of Samuel. They did not follow their father’s examples. These children were collecting bribe from the public and were perverting justice. Is this a good report? What caused it?
55.      Samuel gave much attention to the affairs of the nation and did not know how to train his own children. Samuel neglected the instruction to train his children when they were young and look at the outcome. They have now caused a very big disgrace to popular Samuel.
56.      There is another family. 2 Samuel 12, finish it at your own convenient time. It is a story you know very well. It is the house of King David. David was a man after God’s own heart. David ruled Israel very well and maintained good record before Israel. But look at what is happening in his house.
57.      One of the sons of David raped David’s daughter. Fornication or incest going on in David family. A son of David, lying with a daughter of David in king David’s own house. A man of God! A man after God’s own heart.
58.      Is it not an abomination? While we talk about that one, one of David’s sons used machete and murdered his own brother. In the house of King David, murder was going on.
59.      While we were talking about that one, one of the sons of David went upstairs, on top of the decking and was lying with David’s best wife openly. The children of Israel gathered. And were clapping hands, waving to the man on top of his father’s wife in King David’s house.
60.      As if that was not enough, one of the sons rose up against him and chased him out of his house. David was running for his life. People were asking him, “King! What is pursuing you?” He said, “It is my son.”
61.      What caused it? David did not pay attention to the Word of God. He is reaping the fruit of his deed. Whatever seed a man soweth, that he must reap.
62.      If you neglect to carry out the commandment of God, by training your children in the fear of God, one day you will hear, “Open this door or I will open it by force. And if you do not come out, I will kill you.”
63.      What will cause it? Wilful neglect to carry out God’s instruction. What is the resultant effect? Your children are now hooligans. How many will like his family to be like that of David? Show by raising your hand. Nobody wants it.
64.      If you want to avoid it, you MUST obey the commandment of God. You must train your children in the fear of God otherwise, you are forfeiting them.
65.       God takes record of iniquity. In Numbers Chapter 14 from verse 17 to 24; God took an oath. He said to the people of Israel, “All these years you have sinned against me ten times and all of you that have committed these things against me ten times, you will never enter the Promised Land. I will kill all of you in the wilderness.”
66.      And the Lord did it. A time came, the people started thinking that it is only when one commits sin ten times that God will punish him. They did not know when God reduced the number of times without consulting them.
67.      Amos 1 verse 3. “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof”
68.      Verse 6; “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof;”
69.      Verse 9; “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof;”
70.      Verse 11; “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof;”
71.      Verse 13; “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof;”
72.      Amos chapter 2 verse 1; “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Moab, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof;”
73.      Verse 4; “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof;”
74.      Verse 6; “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof;” KJV.
75.      God judges everyman by one standard. When God reduced the number to four, he concluded the whole matter. Four transgressions! The fourth one, I will never turn away my punishment.
76.      UNLESS WE BEHAVE LIKE JOB, WHO IS ALWAYS BRINGING SIN OFFERING AND SACRIFICES BEFORE GOD ON BEHALF OF HIS CHILDREN, WE ARE BOUND TO FORFEIT THEM TO THE HAND OF SATAN.
77.      Do not say your children are too small. Do not say so. They are not too small. They are not too small.
78.      2 Chronicles 22:1-4; “And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah his youngest son king in his stead: for the band of men that came with the Arabians to the camp had slain all the eldest.  So Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned.
79.      Forty and two years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem.  His mother's name also was Athaliah the daughter of Omri.
80.      He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab: for his mother was his counseller to do wickedly.
81.      His mother was what? His counsellor to do wickedly. MOTHERS! BE VERY CAREFUL. WATCH THIS YOUNG MAN. THE MOTHER MISLED THE MAN. KNOW THE TYPE OF ADVICE YOU ARE GIVING TO YOUR CHILDREN. KNOW THE TYPE OF ADVICE YOU ARE GIVING TO YOUR CHILDREN.
82.      MANY OF YOU ARE GUILTY OF SPOILING YOUR CHILDREN, EVEN WHEN YOUR HUSBAND WILL INSTRUCT THE CHILDREN ON WHAT TO DO, YOU THINK HE IS BECOMING TOO HARSH; YOU GATHER YOUR CHILDREN AT THE BACKYARD AND CANCEL THE WORDS OF THE MAN. IT IS VERY BAD OF YOU.
83.      DO NOT TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WICKEDNESS. TEACH THEM RIGHTEOUSNESS. SOME OF YOU MOTHERS DO NOT EVEN KNOW THAT GOD PERMITTED YOU TO TEACH YOUR LITTLE ONES. YOU THINK THE WORK IS MEANT FOR ONLY FATHERS.
84.      There were little boys in Israel that became kings at the age of seven. Some eight. Some sixteen. And they ruled Israel righteously. The Bible said they did that which was right in the sight of God.
85.       In conclusion, 2 Timothy 3:15; “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures...”
86.      Timothy, from childhood, when he was small knew the holy scriptures. 
87.      And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation...”
88.      From a child, you have known the holy scriptures that are able to make you wise with the knowledge of God “unto salvation through faith” unto salvation through faith.
89.      How many can boast of their children knowing the Holy Scriptures from childhood? How many can boast of that?
90.      2 Timothy 1:5; “When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.” .
91.      Who brought Timothy up? Timothy’s grand mother and his own mother. They taught Timothy to know the Holy Scriptures when He was too tender. Timothy’s mother and Timothy’s grand mother caused Timothy to know Holy Scriptures when he was too tender.
92.      You have to settle down and teach them. From the beginning, God gave us that commandment.
93.      Sister Umezulike! God is one, not three in one. TRUE or FALSE? It is true? How can we find that in the Holy Scriptures? Where? Glory be to God. Where do we get it in the scripture? 
94.      Brethren from the North, I hope the matter is as clear as the day.
95.      The first baptism in the Bible in Acts of the Apostles was done in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. TRUE or FALSE? Where can we find it in the Bible? No way. Many are running away because they are too far from the microphone.
96.       Where is Sister Nath? She is too far. Where do we find that in the Bible? No way. She answered what? Acts 2:38? Glory be to God. That is all I need. I say, that is all I need. Mothers that will settle down and impart these knowledge into there children.
97.      Can a man give something he has not? Can mothers give to there children something they have not? Can fathers give to there children something they have not?
98.      Have you now seen the necessity to find enough time to study the Holy Scriptures and impart them unto our children? If we do not train these children and cause them to obey this Gospel truth, which we are preaching now, we are forfeiting them to the devil.
99.      If I do not declare this to you, I am not a good Watchman. Now that I have declared it to you, I have washed off my hands.  
100.  How many parents are on this duty position? How many parents here can say before God, “I have obeyed this commandment.”
101.   It is not rushing to the altar. It is taking a decision and telling God, “Forgive me for I have neglected these instructions all these years.”

102.  And this instruction is for your own good, for the good of your family, for the good of your children. And you are neglecting it. You want to be saved. And you want your children to perish. That is wickedness. Amen.
