Preached on Sunday 22nd June 2014 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE SUPREME INTELLIGENCE” “Truth has no substitute” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

I Am the Excellent Glory, The Divine Thinker, the Supreme Lawgiver, the I AM, the Elohim, the Holy One.
Believe it if you can…
-THE SON OF MAN
DESPISE NOT THE DAY OF SMALL THINGS PG. 3 

If up to this moment you have not seen the Lord in the Lord, you are blind. If up to this very day, by revelation, you have not known that the Son of Man and the Father are one, you are lost! you are Totally lost and Doomed to eternal destruction!
On that day when salvation from sin shall be made complete, somebody will mark you present or absent. If I look in Me and you are not in Me, you are absent. You cannot be in Me and be outside.
You cannot join this glorious body of Christ if you are not born in it; you are born into it
–The Son of Man
From the Message:  (I and My Family We Will Worship Christ Alone, Page 41 vs 3 and 42, vs 8)

BE VERY CAREFUL
Bridal Conference” Volume 1, page 24, paragraph 13. This Word is frightening! For Jesus said, “He knew those that believed him and those that believe him not.” He also knew even he that would betray him. For known unto God are all His works from the beginning of the world…” If you believe it, say Amen.
2.           “…So that whatever you are doing, you won’t be thinking that you are taking the Son of Man by surprise…” Who are you? That I am keeping quiet is because I do not want to frighten you and that you do not think that somebody is reporting you to the Son of Man.
3.           There is nobody that has ever had a problem in this Faith without the Son of Man even telling the person ahead of time. And there is no problem that has even befallen the Son of Man which He never saw afar off, knew the source and even told the source whatever he was planning.
4.           Sometimes, God will allow you to carry out your plans so that He would be just while handling out his judgment. It has happened to even Apostle Ojiakor who is a medical doctor several times.
5.           He was nearing his grave yet he never knew. He could not even say what is happening in him, he took drugs upon drugs, until he slumped down in the toilet one afternoon like that.
6.           The word of the Son of Man came back to him, “Brother Ojiakor, do something to your health, you are dying, you are not well”. Then the thing came back. The remedy came forth. It has happened to many like that.
7.           We are enjoying privileges. It is not our right; I call them, our privileges in Christ.
8.           I want to know why they called this message, “Bridal Conference”, and I want to know what the conference was all about. I can never remember any day I held a conference with the Bride.
9.           Thus, coming up with this title, “Bridal Conference volume one”, I just want to know what the conference might be, because my Name is involved.
10.        And I want to sound a warning. Please, I don’t care the inspiration, whether you are transcribing or you are printing, do not give any title to any message without my notice. Consult me first. He that preached the message knows the title. Take my warning now.
11.        I have noticed many, many things. At the same time, if you are led to transcribe anything, please, do not add, do not subtract. If you want to change the grammar, please, make sure that the meaning is not altered.
12.        I have noticed that in some places, if there be anything you could not understand, you change the grammar, you put what you understood.
13.        Sometimes you put your personal interpretations and credit everything to the Son of Man. Sometimes, some of them might be disjointed, making the message irrelevant.
14.        You have no right to add or to subtract! If I spoke in Igbo and you want to translate in English, go to a perfect translator who will give you the exact translation of that idiom, proverb or adage. This is my warning.
15.        I am not making a commercial print. It is not being sold, this is a purely spiritual matter. Human lives are involved! If you misinform the people, you will cause them to err. Misinform the people and cause them to err.
16.        It is applicable to spelling errors, if you want to transcribe anything, the rule is this: your dictionary must be by your side to crosscheck some words that are not clear to you.
17.        That you do not know the meaning does not mean that you are going to put something else.   Please, take note of what I am saying. I have seen so many things where the words are completely changed, and another thing put in place that could not portray the meaning out-rightly. Don’t ever attempt it!
18.        Put your dictionary by your side like a copy typist. A good copy typist, a good secretary, a good administrator who is vested with the authority to write memos must have a copy of the dictionary by his or her side to crosscheck spellings and the use of words.
19.        Please, take note of what I am saying. Who and who are vested with the responsibility to vet the works, by vetting I mean, proofreading? Brother Nnamdi is only doing “cut and nail.” His education is valueless as far as this place is concerned.
20.        Brother Nnamdi cannot correct any grammatical blunder. He only accepts the softcopy, places the whole thing on the screen and then edit. finish.
21.        Your editing is useless until you have gone through the message. And you are equally advised to have a copy of the dictionary by your side; otherwise you may remove words because you don’t know their meanings. I am telling you the truth.
22.        I got a message from a brother the other day, he was describing the action of a brother, he said that he was suffering from megalomania. You may look at it and you say that it is tautology.
23.        It is not tautology, it is English-English. Check it in the dictionary, you will see the meaning. I hope, I am making sense?
24.        “…I am trying to beef up your faith, espousing you to something because if we are in the ministry of the Son of Man, we are in the ministry of “Thus saith the Lord.
25.        Another meaning of the Son of Man is the Prophet. Was Jesus Christ not called the Prophet? Once you are in the Prophetic Ministry, is this ministry not a Prophetic ministry?
26.        Are you not the children of the Prophets? Are we not espoused to the words of the Prophets and the Apostles with a warning that we should take heed to their words?
27.        Is this Body not established by the words of the Prophets and the Apostles? Then you are in the ministry of “Thus saith the Lord”. That He (The Son of Man) does not shout, “Thus saith the Lord” is simply because of one thing. If I say, “Thus saith the Lord, which Lord?
28.        If I say, “Thus saith the Holy Spirit,” which Holy Spirit? It then means, I am talking to heathens, that is, I am talking to pagans.  Amen.

GLORY NOT IN YOUR ACADEMIC BRILLIANCE
One of our sisters somewhere called me the other day and was talking about birthday parties and things like that, I said, “No, none of our children will attend the party in your house.
2.           If you want such a thing to hold, cook your food, carry everything to the fellowship venue in the form of “thanksgiving,” everybody will eat, rejoice and praise God.
3.           “But to organize it in your house, invite them, impossible. I will not allow them to be there. They will not even be part of the cooking.”
4.           She now called over, because I saw afar off, considering the time she called and everything. She said, “What would I do now? I invited so, so and so, this and that, this and that.”
5.           I said, “But you told me it was just a minor thing that will involve you and your children and this and that. For the fact that you invited them, you organized such a thing with these pagans as your guests and you wanted our children to come there and defile themselves, this is a big testimony that you are a stark pagan.”
6.           She said “What?” I said, “Hear me well, you are a P.A.G.A.N.” The Cloud is in the camp. She marveled. I asked, “Can’t you understand what I am saying? If you did not understand, let me say it in Igbo. I repeated it in Igbo.”
7.           Tell me the people you move with, you associate with, and I will tell you the spirit that is operating in you. I don’t need a prophet to direct me to a socialite. Once you are a socialite, I know. Once you are playing politics with the Son of Man, I know.
8.           Playing politics with the Son of Man means playing politics with our Faith. I went further to tell her plainly: “Of a truth, your heart is not yet converted.” If you see a converted heart, the desire, that is the fruit. Your desire is the fruit you must produce.
9.           Whatever a man manifests emanates from the heart. Equally, whatever a woman manifests emanates from the heart. The manifestation is always the interpretation.
10.        By your manifestation, I will know the spirit that has possessed you. Heathens must go where the heathens are; the same way children of God must go where the children of God are.
11.        Deep calleth deep. Birds of the same specie move together. What is more, by the time I picked my phone to call both the Pastor and his assistant, they had already taken their stand. They told me, “Daddy, we know more than that. We got the invitation; we reasoned among ourselves and decided we will never honour it. Nothing will ever make us to yoke ourselves with pagans.”
12.        I said, “What?” He said, “Daddy, I am telling you, we cannot yoke ourselves with heathens. In whose honour are we doing the celebration? Is it not our God?
13.        If heathens are the people that invited us, it is a different thing. But for somebody from among us to invite the heathens and then ask us to come and sit down, Daddy, we decided, even if she never called us, we will not be there.
14.        My heart was pleased when they told me that. Any god that has no don’ts is not worthy to be worshipped. IN YOUR QUIET MOMENT, THINK ABOUT THIS FAITH. MANY HAVE NOT SAT DOWN TO THINK ABOUT THIS FAITH BECAUSE MAYBE, THEY ARE JUST PASSING THROUGH WITH TIME.
15.        ONE THING IS TO PASS THROUGH THIS FAITH; ANOTHER THING IS FOR THE FAITH TO PASS THROUGH YOU. YOU ARE NOT SAVED; YOU ARE NOT IN THE FAITH OF THE SON OF MAN UNTIL THE FAITH OF THE SON OF MAN HAS PASSED THROUGH YOU.
16.        You can pass through a university without the university passing through you. That’s why you can see some people, after going to universities, acquiring higher degrees; they still come out worse than what they were before they went there, for they learnt nothing.
17.        Advancement in knowledge should be advancement in character, advancement in understanding, and also advancement in wisdom. How can you graduate from a university, only for infants to teach you wisdom and understanding?  
18.        Foolish people see higher academic attainment as an opportunity for self-liberation, uncontrolled liberation: “I am learned, I went to university, I did this, I did that,” for that reason, who are you to talk to me?
19.        Any knowledge that is acquired from any university, secondary school, I call it commercial knowledge, because it was purchased with money. Wisdom cannot be purchased with money. Any wisdom that is purchased with money is useless. It then means, you buy the much your money can purchase. Outside money, you cannot have wisdom.
20.        Everybody should be very careful. The highest institution is this God’s institution. I said it because it is only in Christ’s own Institution, that is where people that did not go to school came out and became brighter than Ph.D. holders, became reformed more than Ph.D. holders, to the astonishment of everybody.
21.        Hence, they could say, “Where cometh this type of wisdom, knowledge that is being displayed seeing they did not go to school?” What is more, this message came to prove those scholars wrong, for they can only believe something that agrees with their own philosophy, because they lack spiritual insight and spiritual foresight, but they have only academic knowledge which is manmade.
22.        That is why their knowledge, their understanding, their wisdom, they all are limited. Sometimes, wiser people behave foolishly so that the arrogant and haughty would advertise to the entire world his or her nakedness and foolishness.
23.        A young man was trying to put a little argument up before me; I looked at him, how smart he was. In his smartness, I simply tested him a little. I noticed that he was void of knowledge; besides, he was not what he was claiming to be. Making dogmatic assertions on matters he was completely ignorant of.
24.        What is more, he never knew I am a genius in all fields of human endeavours, unless I don’t want to visit that area. If you think I am ignorant, you are fooling yourself.
25.        The truth is this; I have not remembered your own sector. If I come to your sector in the financial sector, I will be higher than your permanent secretary, even your Accountant-General in your own accounting department.
26.        If I want to talk on Management, you will never find your feet anymore. If I want to talk on Pharmacy, Engineering, every aspect of life; I am the Chief Mechanic that put everything together.
27.        I talk to you at your levels, but there are certain levels of people that will come before me, I will elevate it. Yes. When I look at your formation, the Cloud is in the camp! There is no need talking.
28.        When you are feeling your pains, do you know why you are feeling pains? You don’t know. If I should use a candle on you, your hand is automatically withdrawn, what happens in you? What withdrew your hand immediately? What can you describe the whole thing to be?
29.        I was the one that made the whole world to know the composition of the human, brain, that it is made up of over one trillion, one trillion fibers. Over one trillion fibers compacted together.
30.        That’s the word I could use for infants, but if I want to go higher, I will tell you, the brain is composed of over one trillion sensory, carefully programmed and arranged, both electrons and neutrons. Hence, you can talk of neurosis.
31.        Yes, if the neurons are not there, nobody will suffer from systemic or psychometric, neurotic problem. That is neurotic psychosis. There is no way anybody can suffer it. The impulses are there.
32.        WE ARE NOT IN THIS MOST HOLY FAITH TO PRACTICE OUR ACADEMIC BRILLIANCE. WE ARE IN THIS MOST HOLY FAITH TO DEMONSTRATE OUR SPIRITUAL MATURITY. NOBODY IS GOING TO BE SAVED BECAUSE OF HIS ACADEMIC ATTAINMENT, BUT YOU WILL BE SAVED BY YOUR SPIRITUAL MATURITY.
33.        YOU CAN ATTAIN ACADEMIC BRILLIANCE WITHOUT SPIRITUAL BRILLIANCE. SPIRITUALLY, YOU WEIGHED ZERO, ACADEMICALLY, HUNDRED PERCENT.
34.        WHAT IS KILLING THE WORLD TODAY, IS IT NOT ACADEMICS? THAT IS WHY; GOD HAS USED THE FOOLISH TO CONFOUND THE WISE. WHERE IS THE POSITION OF THE WISE PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD? WHERE IS THEIR POSITION? FOR GOD HAS MADE THEIR ACADEMIC POSITIONS USELESS NONSENSE.
35.        That’s why William Branham said, “Whenever God comes down in human form, first step He takes is saving mankind, it is by rigging away all human intellect and then impact the spiritual knowledge of who God is.” For no man has through his human philosophy or academic brilliance succeeded in doing the will of God.
36.        You have not even known God. Nobody has known God. That’s why Job said, “Through much learning and education; nobody has ever succeeded in knowing God.”
37.        But God has chosen the despised things of this world, things that are rejected, things that are despised, things that do not worth anything to confound those that think they are something so that no flesh will glory in His Presence.
38.        He said, “Let no man ever glory in his wealth or his academic knowledge, brilliance.” Let he that will glory, glory in one thing, that he understandeth and knoweth the Lord. That is God of equity and justice, who cannot for any reason pervert justice. For He doesn’t take bribe.
39.        Today, what is the pride of the world? Doctorate degree or Ph.D., professor, VC and that. Is it not the pride of the world?
40.        Are you surprised that God is pushing all of them away? The market woman is better than a professor in the university in spiritual knowledge of who God is, because of her low estate, to accept Christ becomes easy, to listen to Christ becomes easy.
41.        But the professor can never condescend with men and women of low estate. Impossible. The only professor that will condescend with men, women, infants of low estate remains a seed of God, a daughter of Abraham, a son of Abraham, the rest won’t. For the pride of life will consume them all.
42.        They will desire to shuttle from America to Russia, Russia to Czechoslovakia, Czechoslovakia to Brazil, Brazil to Mexico, Mexico to Chile, Chile to Argentina, Argentina to Sudan, Sudan to Romania, back to Abuja, Abuja to Lagos and Port Harcourt. Rubbish!
43.        Yes, because, he wants to be another Ferdinand Magellan whose pride was his achievement, that he ran round the world. He wants to be an air navigator, Ariel navigator, not sea navigator. The pride will be the number of countries I have been touring.
44.        After touring number of countries, toured the whole world, what next? The pride of life, what human heart desire, these are the things devil use to pin them down. These things have nothing to do with the life that Christ gives.
45.        NOTE IT VERY WELL, IF YOU WANT TO BE CAREFUL, I WILL TELL YOU THE POINT WHERE YOU WILL BE CAREFUL WITH THE SON OF MAN. ANY MOMENT YOU BEGIN TO EXPECT “THANK YOU” FROM THE SON OF MAN, YOU ARE GONE.
46.        THE SON OF MAN WILL GIVE YOU TWENTY-FOUR BASKETS OF “THANK YOU” IN LESS THAN ONE HOUR. I REPEAT, THE SON OF MAN WILL GIVE YOU MORE THAN TWENTY “GHANA MUST-GO” BAGS OF ‘THANK YOU’ IN LESS THAN ONE HOUR. YOUR DESTRUCTION IS IN THE ‘GHANA MUST-GO’.
47.        One day, He will give you one with an inscription which the Son of Man will place on it, “I am checking out”. You say, Brother, I saw an inscription that said, “I am checking out”.
48.        I will say, “Take it anyhow”. Finish. All of them na thank you. Once you are fond of expecting mails from the Korea, the Korea go dey come. One day you will open one which you cannot even read the contents publicly. Thank you.
49.        The Cloud has overClouded this place. You are greatly overClouded by the supreme Cloud. Yes, I did not want to come out, but something prompted me to. I heard my Name.
50.        Brother Kelechi, I heard my name and I responded. I heard something beyond the Son of Man, beyond Apostle Peter, I heard my real Name being mentioned, and if I fail to respond, it then means I am in the mortuary. To God be the glory. Amen.

YOU ARE HIGHLY FAVOURED

Note it very well, if you are a good masquerade, or you used to put on a good mask that is being dreaded and admired by your people, the drummers know the type of beating they will give you.
2.           Those that know the trumpet or the flute, they know when you are coming. They will give you the thing in the way you normally desire it until you will lift up the thing and know whether they are there. They will give you the thing again. You are overclouded.
3.           Let me tell you, the Son of Man has spoiled all of you. I have over equipped you for the translation. I said, “I have over equipped you”. What you are wearing now is heavier than you.
4.           It is like David being dressed with a war uniform that weighs more than David. If you are having problem, it is not with the message again, but it is with your uniform.
5.           Okay, I know what will happen, some will carry oversize. Sister Amobi, you deserve oversize. I will keep on talking here, vibrating, shouting one day, what seems like a rain will no longer be rain.
6.           See the way you are shouting as if it is taking place here alone, this is how it is happening globally, uniting them in the Godhead, all ending it in the Son of Man. But you are a privileged people seeing Him face to face. From here, the magnet will go up and begin to pull them from the East to the West, from the North to the South. Before you know it, they will form a constellation of stars. A constellation of stars there.
7.           If you have been privileged to watched the world cup that is going on, in every stadium, the spectators there are so great that they look like stars.
8.           Can you imagine, when the sons and daughters of God will be drawn into the air, lifting their hands with their supernatural dresses, with their eyes and faces glittering, they will form a super constellation greater than the stars of heaven.
9.           Yet the question still lingers, if God who called you, preserved you, carried you across the ocean, across the sea, rivers, mountains and valleys, across the troubles of this life and you have seen everything coming to an end.
10.        From that very beginning, He never felt it necessary to discard you along the way, why are you trying to discard yourself? If God who called you, preserved you, carried you across the ocean, across the sea, rivers, mountains and valleys, across the troubles of this life, across many pits, thorns and hardship, across all manner of sicknesses, yet, He preserved you, He never dropped you and you have seen everything coming to an end.
11.        Is there any country that is not having trouble? Are you seeing what is happening? Was it like this from the beginning? If we were not told of it earlier, it would have looked like a tradition.
12.        God told us when it will begin to happen. He did not drive us away, and if He does, He would bring us back. He continued holding us till today, why then are you trying to drive yourself away?
13.        “He that dismissed himself from the ark said that there was no chance for him to enter the ark”.
14.        You are overclouded with the Supernatural Cloud. We don’t speak in a foreign language. I will keep on talking, I will keep on addressing you, you keep on accepting, one day, you think the rain is going to fall, you think it is normal Cloud, before you know it, it is all over. All of you will vanish into thin air, appearing and disappearing.
15.        Look at the picture of the Supreme Judge. That is what you are going to be. Look at the picture, I will have my own, you will have your own. We will recognize ourselves.
16.        On that day He came to the fellowship to be photographed, who showed Him the way? Who was His director? Who told Him where to stay? You mean to tell me that He was not seeing us when we were coming in? He that gave us eyes, look at the picture, does He not have His own eyes?
17.        He has eyes, He has ears, He walked in, the legs are there, the hands, the heads, everything. Not the similitude of God but God Himself. Suddenly, at a time when they knew not, He walked into the temple.
18.        The Cloud is in the camp. Do you need a Prophet to tell you the Cloud is in the camp as a vindication, a vindication of the Supernatural Presence of God in all the ages?
19.        This was what the people normally saw and then they would fall flat, but in our own, we don’t need to fall flat. When we see the Cloud, we glorify the Lord; we rejoice that we are not deceived. Worshipping God in the approved place He has chosen for Himself to place His Name.
20.        Did we fly into this Faith? Were we not somewhere else before? People have been wedding, snapping pictures during parties, have they ever captured this type of thing before? Have they come across even this particular one that is happening now before?
21.        You know, when it is like this, you will begin to remember your wives at home, you remember your children outside, stop thinking about them, wherever the person might be, both the one inside the womb and the one beneath the earth, as long as the person is in this Faith, that person is covered.
22.        “Bridal Conference,” volume one page 27, paragraph 21. “I am trying to beef up your faith, espousing you to something because if we are in the ministry of the Son of Man, we are in the ministry of “Thus saith the Lord…”  
23.        And you know, “Thus saith the Lord” can never fail.
24.        “…If we are in the ministry of the Acts of the Apostles, we are in the ministry of the Church, a called out, we are in the ministry of the Spoken Word, we are in the ministry of doctrine.” Have you seen the difference? If you are in the ministry of the Son of Man, you are in the Spoken Word Ministry.
25.        If you are in the ministry of the Apostles, you are in the ministry of the Church. You are in the ministry of the written Word. Your God is in the written form. You are serving past tense God…”
26.        ...history is written after events. However, a Prophet writes history before events…”
27.         Why not put your hands together! Do you believe that? Can you see the difference between the ministry of the Apostle and the ministry of the Prophet? Son of Man as the Apostle uses the written word to help you believe that He came from God, that God sent Him.
28.        For without the written word, you wouldn’t have known that whoever that speaks the Word of God, the Spirit of God is upon him without measure. Then in his office as the Son of Man, He begins to write history before events, by foretelling things that are yet to come.  
29.        Recently, Apostle Ojiakor was in the pulpit, he was ministering, reading, a little while he went wild, the message was going, he said, “I can never forget that day the prophecy went forth, I wasn’t there but we were told about the prophecy”
30.        The voice said, “Go to Eha-amufu and salvage my children there”. And he showed them a sign. We went, the devil waited on the way. Before we got to Nkalagu junction, the 404 vehicle spoiled. 404, not 504, the oldest model.
31.        It was on a Sunday, the radiator blew, the cover blew off, there was no water anywhere and too, the fan belt spoiled like the radiator. My colleague who was with us, who is no longer here, Bon Duka, a very faithful man that time, gallant. He said, “We should pack the vehicle less the engine will knock”. I said, “Bon, look at me, you are Boniface Duka, I am Boniface Odoemena, if you will agree with my word doubting nothing, we are going to Eha-amufu, I have not been there before.”
32.        He said, “Look, the road is bad; we cannot from this village before Nkalagu junction drive this thing without water to Eha-amufu without the engine knocking.”
33.        I said, “Bon Diuka, off your eyes from the radiator, move!” We left, got to Eha-amufu, parked the vehicle. The temperature never rose, no drop of water in the radiator, the engine never knocked. I told him it was a sign.
34.        At the end of our meeting, we came out, put the whole thing in order, continued our journey back to Onitsha. Because we were coming back late in the night, few minutes after ten, the road was terribly bad. From Ninth-mile to Nkpor, Lagos and the whole world that came to see the Son of Man to fight him were at Nkpor, according to prophecy and vision.
35.        That was the day Okey Nwankpa denied this Faith completely. While we were away, he denied the Son of Man, denied Him, only for him to regret.
36.        On my way to Abagana with Brother Chime and so on, I reminded them of it, I said, “The same way, you denied this faith, God will deny you. And for attempting to erase your statement from the tape, you spoiled the tape, so the Lord erased your name from the book of life”. He wept from there to Abagana. This thing happened in 1993.
37.        While we were coming back, by the time we got to Ugwuoba, there was no fuel in the vehicle again. We thought we could get fuel while crossing Ugwuoba Bridge. We crossed; all the filling stations were locked.
38.         I did not know what to do, I turned to Bon Diuka again, I said, “If you will have faith in God, we are going with this vehicle”. I reminded him my experience when I was in denomination, where we drove with flattened tyre, and the tyre got up as we continued.
39.        We preached, came back, the vehicle remained intact for many months. I told him what happened to me at Owerri where I was talking at Amajieke. The students were behaving funny, because I was moved to talk that afternoon after buying my newspaper.
40.        I spoke elaborately, they were paying attention, later they became funny, they were pressing forward. I never knew that while they were pressing forward, I was going backward, and they were given themselves signs I never knew, intending that I should fall into that deep gutter at Amajieke.
41.        I continued talking and talking until I saw about two girls and some boys. Because they drifted back, I crossed and continued. The boy said, “Wait oh, oga, are you a human being? See where you crossed!”
42.        I looked at it, I said, “What!” I walked on the slab, and really, I walked on a slab because I never knew there was a slab. Though there was a gutter, but I walked on a slab and continued preaching, they shivered.
43.        With this few words, Bon was encouraged. He zoomed off till we got to Nkpor without fuel. The same thing I told Charles Nwaobia from Oji River, no fuel, and the vehicle just quench and stopped, moved again, I told Charles, “Off your eyes from the dashboard, I know what is taking place, drive straight to the fellowship ground at GTC”.
44.        We carried the thing to GTC, I said, “Do not switch off.” I know there is no fuel there. We did not switch off, I carried my children, we continued, immediately we entered the house, the thing switched off. Not even a drop was left in the tank.
45.        You see, FAITH COMETH BY HEARING. WE TALK ABOUT FAITH, YOU SEE, IT IS A BIG MOUNTAIN. FAITH MEANS SIMPLY TRUSTING IN WHAT YOU HEARD, BELIEVING THAT THE PERSON THAT IS TALKING TO YOU IS GOD’S MOUTHPIECE SENT TO YOU FOR YOUR OWN SALVATION.
46.        EVEN IF HE INDICTS YOU, IT IS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. HE BEATS YOU, IT IS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. WHATEVER, WHATEVER, ALL FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. FOR THE THOUGHT OF GOD TOWARDS YOU ARE THE THOUGHTS OF GOOD AND NOT OF EVIL TO GIVE YOU A BETTER END.
47.        BUT SOMETIMES, PEOPLE ARE STRUGGLING TO OPPOSE GOD’S OWN PLAN FOR THEM. WAS IT NOT WHY THE JEWS PERISHED? THEY NEGLECTED GOD’S PLAN FOR THEM AND INSTITUTED THEIR OWN PLAN OF SALVATION.
48.        APOSTLES, IS IT NOT WHAT IS DOCUMENTED? ONCE YOU NEGLECT GOD’S OWN GIVEN PLAN OF SALVATION FOR YOU, YOU ARE BOUND TO ESTABLISH YOUR OWN. THERE IS A MYSTERY THERE.
49.        I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING HERE. ALTHOUGH WE PREACH UNIFORMITY OF THE GOSPEL, THERE IS NO UNIFORMITY IN GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION. GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION IS GIVEN TO INDIVIDUALS ACCORDING TO WHATEVER GOD HAD ALREADY PROGRAMMED FOR THEM.
50.        God can come to Apostle Kelechi and tell him, “If salvation is important to you, cut this tree before the daybreaks.” And he believes. If he succeeds cutting it, that is all. He (God) will go to another person and tell him to sell all he has and share it to the poor.
51.        He will meet another person and tell him, you see this River Niger where people offload their refuse; you must go there and bath for one week.
52.        Obedience to God’s word is your salvation depending on the Word of God that has come to you. For the Word of God that has ever come to man for salvation has always been opposed to the man’s desire. This is why you must have your revelation of who is talking to you.
53.        There is nobody in this most holy Faith that can tell me what God will tell him even now, and what God has in mind for telling him that. For what you may be thinking might be one million miles away from what God has in mind.
54.        That’s why He said, “Your ways are not my ways neither are your thoughts my thought. As the heaven above is far from the earth so are his ways and his thoughts from your own.”
55.        That is why when He wanted to rig away Peter’s knowledge of vision, Peter was trying to establish a fact that he had even been a fisher man before Jesus was born, that he was more experienced both in swimming and in fishing. For every fisher man must be a good swimmer.
56.        That Jesus Christ who came from Galilee was a novice concerning fishing. Thus he said, “Why do you want me to put my net here at the shore of this river. Do you know me? I Peter Bar Jona, Simon Peter Bar Jona, I have toiled all the night, I told you this boat never rested.
57.        “I and my brethren, all the night, we got nothing. We are about to go and you are saying, cast it here, at the shore, by the right hand side, okay, nevertheless, I don’t know you. Do you know me? Do you know my experience in fishing?” He went further, “At thy word, let me cast it.”
58.        Remember as at that time, Jesus Christ had not been introduced into the heart of Peter, and Jesus Christ was seeking a way of introducing Himself into the heart of Peter, to believe that He was, He is and will remain a peculiar one, different from others by doing that which others could not do, by performing that contrary to his long standing experience. What he (Peter) saw what trilled him, he bowed down.
59.        That was why, when he commanded him to abandon the fish and follow him, it was very easy. After all, when you came out after toiling all the night, caught nothing.
60.        The revelation became: “The Lord giveth, the Lord taketh. Let me follow him, maybe next time, he will ask me to go to the mountain and while coming down, I will have basket full.”
61.        It was the experience they had that made them not to complain when they shared the few loaves of bread and fishes with thousands of people.
62.        The Voice said, “Share to all of them excluding yourselves.” And they were terribly hungry. Imagine that you were given food to share to all exclude yourself. The question was: How can this get to everybody?
63.        They were asked to continue sharing, by the time everybody was satisfied, it was recorded in the scripture saying, “There were leftovers,” and when they gathered the leftovers, they cumulated into twelve baskets. One Apostle, one basket; one Apostle, one basket; but the people got the little quality they ate and went away, the Apostles went home with one basket full each.
64.        When you get home, you eat the way you want with your family. Is it not mysterious? With that thing that took place, he has introduced himself into their hearts. If you have the message, “The unwelcomed Christ in all the ages.”
65.        Who were the people that never welcomed Him? They were the people that hardened their hearts against the truth. Once your heart is open to the truth, you must acknowledge all supernatural occurrences to be of God. Trying to explain away the supernatural occurrence means explaining away the God you worship, for He is a supernatural God that specializes in doing supernatural things.
66.        What makes them supernatural? One, they are things that cannot be impersonated, fabricated or manufactured. They are things that are not commonly seen. To God be the glory.
67.        Have we been privileged to see such things? Do we have something we can lay hand on and say, “Surely, we believe we are not deceived”. Thank you, Amen.

I AM YOUR JUSTIFIER
Bridal Conference, page 28 verse 24, “The Son of Man writes history before events.” The Son of Man writes history before events...”
2.           Fear not about where you are going to. Has He failed you before? There is one assurance He has given to you, He has always withheld the weather.
3.           “…Look at Father Edeh, Mbaka, watch their pure water, watch their handkerchief, scarf, polo, everything will bear their symbol. They believe, once you have it, you are now secured – you are now in heaven.
4.           Foolish people! If one-tenth of what has taken place in the Bride has ever happened anywhere in the world, that ministry would have become, let Me tell you, it would have become the point of pilgrimage…”
5.           Abeg, una dey see the weather? Your eyes dey open? Yes sir. Una dey see the weather? E-don come back to my table oh!
6.           “…Nobody teaches God how to save anybody He wants to save…
7.           Underline it, put it down! There is a salvation plan for every seed of God. Nobody teaches God to go to the sea and fetch Peter, fetch James and John. Nobody told God that Daniel was there under that oak tree.
8.            I dey make sense at all?  Can anybody teach God how he will save somebody? Do you know why I praise God? There is a reason why I praise God.
9.           The reason why I praise God is this, “No matter how Sister Nnachor hates Brother Solomon, she can never tell the Son of Man not to save Solomon. Even if she says it, she knows that the Son of Man will not listen to her.
10.        I am saying that you cannot point to Son of Man and say, “Look at this person, don’t look at the other person”. If somebody can be pointed to him, there will be problem.
11.         Bishop Ebenezer, you can now relax your mind. That spirit of megalomania has been attacked, slaughtered and killed. Serve God with all your heart, believe God, praise God and thank him, finish. That’s your whole duty, but for salvation, it is God’s responsibility which he can never vest or trust or give anybody to exercise for him.
12.        If He gives it to Brother Paschal to decide, many people will not be saved. You can deputize the Son of Man in many things, but concerning the salvation of mankind, Son of Man has no deputy. If He gives it to Brother Ebenezer, heeey! Amen.
13.        That reminds me of something. Bishop Isaac, Brother Longi Aluah, I have read your reports, I know you wrote the truth and nothing but the truth. And I know in your honest attempt to preserve the truth of the gospel of Christ from being blasphemed by the heathens around, you decided to effect the measures you took.
14.        I am in support of those measures. You are right by excommunicating Leonard the Teacher and his entire family. You are absolutely right. I have also condemned them.
15.        But as the Supreme Judge who exercises authority over all flesh without respect of persons, without discriminations, I have noticed that the whole thing bothered on domestic trouble, domestic dispute.
16.        If there is a domestic dispute, you must apply domestic dispute remedy. If the remedy fails, there is something we call Alternative Domestic Dispute Handling or Remedy. Alternative Domestic Dispute Remedy (ADDR).
17.        If it bothers on challenge of the doctrines of Christ, no problem. If it bothers on misappropriation, no problem. But as long as it has to do with domestic conflict, apply Domestic Conflict Resolution Approach. On this note, Leonard and his entire family are restored into the Faith.
18.        As elders, use your experience as a grandfather, take somebody who is knowledgeable in domestic dispute handling, settle the dispute and allow husband and wife and the entire family to remain in peace.
19.        There is no way a house is swept without a cockroach being in it. Yes, there is nobody that looks at a king and the way he dresses that will believe that he can pass faeces from his anus.
20.        If you look at the way a reverend father moves his mouth, you will never believe that he ever sucked the breast of a woman. Too many things can upset a family.
21.        Believe it if you can, where there is no money, there must be problem. Nothing causes dispute more than frustration. Frustration, frustration: Man’s inability to provide the necessities of the family and the woman’s inability to accommodate the man in such a very worrisome situation. For the man doesn’t feel comfortable when you call him and he can’t respond.
22.        Any woman that doesn’t know when the husband is uncomfortable is running a risk. Women can express their own in diverse ways. But a man keeps quiet.
23.        That quietness does not mean lack of interest or concern. He is working with his brain; he is trying to proffer a remedy. Talking to him randomly that time means insult.
24.        A woman that seeks help from the husband at a time when he is in distress is a trouble shooter. She is not suing for peace. Any woman that cannot discern when the husband is not well-positioned is stupid, absolutely stupid.
25.        The money might be there, but the disposition is not okay, because of some external and internal problem the man is passing through. What hinders a man from entering the kitchen is the trouble surrounding him.
26.        Do this and that, but it doesn’t mean that if a man should enter the kitchen that he would not be able to cook food that somebody can eat. It is lack of concentration that makes a man not to cook.
27.        If time is not taken, he can use sugar as salt. He may not know when he poured sugar into the soup all in the name of salt. At times, he can put soup in the fire and forget it, until people around will be asking, “Whose food is burning?” What brought about this? Human wants are insatiable. Human wants are insatiable! Who is satisfied? Nobody.
28.        Before blaming somebody, find out the cause of his disobedience. That he hit his wife on the mouth, leave it there. If I did not restrain you, will the teeth of your wife remain complete?
29.        Bishop, say the truth, I met you when you were quarreling with your wife at Owerri. That time, they used to fear you like a lion especially, when you drank stout beer. If this Faith never come, will the teeth of your wife be complete by now.
30.        Wait, we have somebody that can bear true witness. Sister Patience, you are the first daughter of the Bishop. The voice you heard concerning your father, is it a lie? She said no.
31.        Were all of you not having dispute? Did bishop spare any of you? He used to flog everybody severely including his first son. If he was coming back with his vehicle, everybody would be fearing including those in the university.
32.        Do we talk of your husband; he would flog you at Onitsha and continue flogging you at home. Just leave it there. It is the Son of Man that came with the teaching that says, “Instead of killing her, tolerate her”.
33.        A wife is married with one eye, not two. If you open the two eyes, there would be problem. Even if you see, you turn away your eyes as if you did not see so that there will be peace.
34.        Were you quarreling with her when she was in her father’s house, when she did not know you? She was there, you looked for her, called her “my darling, honey, my darling.” You have bought darling, you have bought darling. Begin to suck honey, begin to eat love. This is true.
35.        How I wish Papa Uwakwe is in the fellowship. Brother Kelechi, has your father escaped the trouble? He said no sir. There is no age a woman will reach as long as she is alive and her husband is alive, that nagging will not stop. If you say that your mother and father stopped it before they died, it is a lie.
36.         As they are getting older, so are the things that will bring quarrels approaching. It may be the way the yam is pounded, the man may touch it, observe that it is not smooth and shout, “Who pounded this yam?” Immediately, food has started causing problem.
37.        It can be meat in the soup, the man might say that he saw the meat in the soup initially but as he continued eating, he could not see the meat again. The woman has stolen the meat.
38.        All I am trying to say, what we witness in the family where there is love, we call it domestic drama. Call it, domestic African magic or Igbo magic. Call it, domestic Son of Man’s magic.
39.        What am I saying? THERE IS NOTHING GOOD MORE THAN A HAPPY HOME. AND WHAT MAKES A HOME HAPPY; I CALL IT, OCCASIONAL CONFLICT, MISUNDERSTANDING,         MISINTERPRETATION, OCCASIONED BY NOTHING.
40.        WOMEN SPECIALIZE IN MAKING TROUBLE OUT OF NOTHING, FOR IT IS THEIR NATURE, AND THEY MAKE THE TROUBLE WHEN THE MAN WANTS TO HAVE PEACE.
41.        Am I telling lies? Bishop’s wife, is there truth in it? She says it is truth. Nzubechi Son of Man, any truth there? She says it is truth. Thank you. The Cloud is here! Amen. Nkiru Solomon, stand up there! Take your children and come here. Help her and carry her bag, authority is talking, implement it immediately.
42.        ANY WOMAN THAT IS DISTANCING HERSELF FROM HER HUSBAND, IS DISTANCING HER BLESSING AND PROTECTION FROM THE MAN. BECAUSE SOONER THAN YOU THINK, YOU WILL FIZZLE OUT OF THE HAND OF YOUR HUSBAND.
43.        IN A SITUATION WHERE THE MAN IS USED TO STAYING ALONE WITHOUT THE WIFE, BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, EVEN IF THE WOMAN IS NOT AROUND; IT WILL MEAN NOTHING TO THE MAN.
44.        Brother James, any truth there? He says it is truth. There is an animal called cat, you all know it. It doesn’t talk; the cat said that there is nothing as sweet as bodies touching each other. Do you understand what I said? That Cat said that nothing is as sweet as bodies touching each other.
45.        Brother Victor Ugwu, any truth there? He says pure truth. Who is there? Stand up there, Sister Victor, come here! She should come here. We are doing drama. The Cloud is in the camp. She will sit inside.
46.        Yes, enough of your leading. You have led enough; you have stayed at the right enough, you will now be at the left hand side. Very good.
47.        It has been a long time she has been on the right hand, this time around; she will now be at the left. Very good.  
48.        Nobody directs the Son of Man on how to save anybody. I am telling you God’s truth. Don’t be offended. Where is your husband? Go over there! Pastor’s wife, come here! Come with everything you have.
49.        Even if you gave birth to the whole of Onitsha, come here. Pastor sit down, when you go to pulpit, she will be here taking care of the books. When you stand, somebody will stand beside you. When message goes forth, you watch your partner and then interact with your eyes.
50.        We are speaking to human beings and not goat. I will continue this way until the most offended will first punch the other. Let me know the cause of the problem. If you are annoyed, be the first to punch the other. Very good. The Cloud is in the camp. Amen.

THE HARMONY OF THE HOME MUST BE PRESERVED
We have crossed the riven veil where His glory never fails, for we are now sitting in the presence of our God.  
2.           We are not Pentecostals where the woman will go to Deeper Life Church, the husband will be going to Chosen Church. Every woman whether she likes it or not must believe whatever the husband believes.
3.           As long as you are in this Faith, it is an act of adultery for a Jew to marry a Muslim. And an act of adultery for a Muslim to marry a Christian.  What is more, our message said that we must marry our sisters. Marry somebody that believes what you believe.
4.           How can I marry a sister that believes what I believe, I come into the congregation to avoid her, I see her presence as a treat to my stay? Are we married? Are we sincere?
5.           Please, we better take note of these things. The harmony of the home must be preserved. The unity of the home must be preserved at all cost, I don’t care whatever that is trying to set in, husband and wife must say no.
6.           The message said, “Believe in Christ, and you will be saved, you and your family”. Is it not true? How can your family be saved when you do not agree?
7.           He said, “Husband and wife, make sure you agree at all times, so that your prayers be not hindered.” I am not raising prostitutes. It is only in the Pentecostals that you see prostitutes; married but alone is a prostitute. I don’t care the way you look at it. No matter whom you are, married but alone is prostitution.
8.           I hope you get the message! I don’t care how it sounds in your ears. I thank God that He has given me the heart of a lion that can never compromise, and the thing that could make me to compromise has died.
9.           Yes, it has died; it is “Anu” (meat). My teeth are dead. I have seen meat; I am passing through many things. Well, the bone shall rise again.
10.        Please brethren, I am making sense, I am not trying to tease anybody. The Presence of God is in the camp, and the Presence of God, if it is not the essence of you being in the fellowship, you are lost.
11.        The Presence of God is established in the fellowship collectively. And must be established in every family that is called by His Name. Which means, wherever this Faith is accepted and practiced without hypocrisy, the Presence of God is there.
12.        This Cloud is not only in the fellowship because I am here, this Cloud covers all your families because, you are all in my book. You are now baptized into the Son of Man, the same way the people of Moses were baptized into Moses, Jesus’ day, they were baptized into Jesus.
13.        Today is the day of the Son of Man. As many are baptized into Him, these are the people He will deliver in Paradise. I am not preaching my baptism for the forgiveness of sin, that one is gone. I am here for full and complete salvation for those that are patiently and eagerly waiting for it.
14.        To them, the way of salvation is sure. The possible road to heaven, while the rest have missed it. Tell me if you know any denomination that is not following the impossible road, including End-time.
15.        Even William Branham looked forward to see the day of the Son of Man, who will justify both the living and the dead. If the Son of Man never appeared, definitely, nobody here will be rejoicing.
16.        You would have remained in the ministry of doom and disappointment and every fellowship day, instead of giving God the glory, you will go home crying, go home weeping, sometimes, you start quarreling from the Church among yourselves. But today, you look for your brother, you never see him, you will not rest until somebody has come, then you are sure you are still here. Please, feel relaxed.
17.        Page 5, “NO MATTER HOW STUBBORN THAT MAN MIGHT BE, YOUR OWN HUMBLE AND SIMPLE LIFE, YOUR SWEET AND GODLY APPROACH CAN WIN THE FAVOUR OF THAT DEVIL. FIRE FOR FIRE IS NOT A GOOD APPROACH TO CONFLICT RESOLUTION. FIRE FOR FIRE IS A DANGEROUS APPROACH TO CONFLICT RESOLUTION.
18.        THE PEACEFUL CO-EXISTENCE OF EVERY FAMILY IS PARAMOUNT IN MY HEART. I DO NOT WANT TO SEE ANYBODY MISSING IN PARADISE. I DO NOT WANT TO SEE ANYBODY MISSING. THAT IS WHY I AM TAKING PAINS TO REMOVE ALL OBSTACLES. I WILL COME LOWEST TO THE LOWEST HUMAN BEING SO THAT IN THE END, IF YOU PERISH, YOU BLAME YOURSELF.
19.        YOU DO NOT NEED TO BLAME ME. THERE IS NO INSTRUMENT WITHIN MY DISPOSAL WHICH I WILL NOT USE TO BRING YOU TO TOTAL OBEDIENCE TO THE TRUTH.–The Son of Man From the Message: (BRIDAL STANDARD IN EVERY FAMILY; PAGE 73, VERSES 10, 14-16).
20.        page 32 verse 38, “THE MESSIAH CAN USE YOUR CAR, HE CAN BORROW YOUR SUIT, HE CAN BORROW YOUR SHOE. IT IS NOT SALVATION: THAT MAY BE YOUR HIGHEST TESTIMONY.
21.        THUS BE VERY CAREFUL. BE VERY CAREFUL. IF YOUR TESTIMONY IS NOT WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU WHEN YOU HEARD HIS WORD, YOUR TESTIMONY CAN NEVER SAVE YOU.”
22.        Page 33 verse 42, “Brother Silas the police man, you are here today…”
23.         I think I saw him in the fellowship this day. Brother Silas the Police man, to God be the glory.
24.        It is just like the people of Jesus Christ and the Apostles, from time to time, they will call Brother Zenas the lawyer, yet Jesus said, “Woe unto you doctors, woe unto lawyers”, yet there was Doctor Luke, there was Barrister Zenas. Your profession can never hinder you from serving God unless you are not a seed of God.  Amen.

LET US FACE THE FACTS
Bridal Conference” volume 1, page 34 verse 43, “Why do you take delight in coming to fellowship in Onitsha from time to time without your family? We don’t know your wife; we don’t know your children. In short, we are not even sure that you have wedded your wife.
2.            Brethren from Egbema, has he wedded his wife? They answered ‘No sir!’ ‘No!’ And you kept quiet while he is increasing the number of children. One day, he will increase the number of wives. Maybe he is waiting for a ceremonial one he will wed.
3.           You know, it is that funny thing that accompanies uniformed people. They will have original wife, they will have a ceremonial wife.
4.           Pure truth, he applied and I rejected his application for lack of merit.  He applied. Brother Loveday, am I telling lies? You all know him, don’t you? Even you, don’t you know him?
5.           I rejected his application for lack of merit. What we search for at the bottom of a pot, is it not fish? He has found fish at the bottom of the pot, what again is he looking for? Somebody who is blessed with children, both male and female, what else is he looking for?
6.           Don’t mind him! He wants to be like others, Son of Man said, “No. First of all, train the ones living with you, feed your wife very well, buy clothes so that she would look good. When you carry her in front of your car, she will look good. Because the beauty of any woman is manmade.”
7.           By nature every woman is ugly. Yes, I have seen everything; I have never seen a beautifully made woman. What makes a woman beautiful is her dress. She will put this, put that, put even dresses of those that had died.
8.           Yes, we have artificial eyelids and lashes. When you see them fixing them, after everything they will look like witches. Do you know what God calls the people that make women dresses?
9.           If you read the book of Proverbs chapter 6, it said, “Women that practice prostitution wear dresses sew by crafty seamstresses”. Go to living Bible. Crafty seamstresses.
10.        Women that sew dresses that has opening at the back or at the buttocks, they know the right one to wear, but you see them wearing one sown in outlandish styles. Mini skirt and mini blouse, is it not somebody that sew them? Are they not dresses?
11.        In short, the day God created man was the day He finished creation. Every other thing he created after was imitation. Whatever a man puts on he looks good. Even if he puts on boxers without shirt, you will see how handsome he will look.
12.        A man is naturally handsome. Even if he barbs his hair, he looks good, he leaves his hair, he looks good. In fact, man is really handsome.
13.        Yes, my late father’s photograph in my office at Upper-Iweka, all that came there, their eyes went there, they have always said the same thing: “Is this your late father?” I said yes.
14.        They said, “This man is really handsome. Even at his old age, he was like this. In fact, when he was young, he really disturbed”.
15.        Any woman that snaps photograph at that age, come and see ugliness. Every woman is likened to Ijele masquerade. Ijele masquerade is man-made.
16.        That is why when a man gets married, during marriage ceremony people would say he is bringing out Ijele masquerade. He will beautify her and put her in a good condition. People will start splashing money around her because she is a masquerade for display.  
17.        “Brother Silas, am I telling lies? He answered “No sir!”….”  
18.        Men are given wine, while women are given money. In my community, when a male child is born, they will call people to shoot gun, but if a female child is born they will call people to splash money.
19.        “…It was a fact and a fight. I threatened him: “try it, I will assign you to the hottest zone where your fellow police men will gun you down.
20.        You cannot tell Me you are marrying a second wife when you have a wife that have up to two or three children for you because you now have money, you now have a car, you now want a ceremonial wife you will be carrying in front of your car. As long as the Son of Man lives, it will never happen…”
21.        It will never happen. Note it, the Son of Man can never approve of a brother, all in the name of wife having a ceremonial wife or ceremonial husband.
22.        If you want to marry, marry your wife. If you want to marry hundred, come and convince me that you have the capacity. Let me see your first wife, her children and the extent you have taken care of them.
23.        If I am not satisfied, you will marry but you will never be in the Faith of the Son of Man. You will go and meet with your people. Don’t ever mention my Name. I am of age.
24.        If you cannot feed your wife very well, together with her children, and you go out to bring others, a mad man is better than you. That’s why I charge sisters: If your husband threatens you on how he will drive you away and marry another wife, tell him if he has the strength let him go ahead. Finish. He is mere pretending, he doesn’t mean it.
25.        He will start suffering straight away. Where will he start? Has he been able to pay for his rent? He cannot pay for his house rent; let alone paying for another place where the woman will live.
26.        Do not mind them! I know when people are talking sense; I know when they are making empty boast. Who does not know his brother? Brethren, let us face facts. We are now waiting for time and that time is completely over. We are now in our extra time. I am the referee, if I carry the ball, you will never get it again.
27.        Brother Loveday, you worship at Egbema, do you worship with Brother Colin’s family? He said “Yes sir.” Are they at Egbema? He said “Yes sir.” Are they worshipping at Egbema? He said “Yes sir.” Okay, Brother Obinna, does Brother Collins come to Port Harcourt? He answered that Brother Collins worships sometimes on Sundays.
28.        Yes, he worships on Sundays because of his work. He is a squad leader; you do not expect him on Wednesdays. He is a combat man, a member of Mobile Police force. He is a unit commander, so you don’t expect him to come on Wednesdays. Even on Sundays, it depends on operational programmes for the week.
29.        The truth is that he is worshipping there, the wife is worshipping the other way. Thus, they are all in fellowship. He has obeyed. This is the much we will take from the message, “Bridal Conference” volume one.
30.        You are overclouded by the great Cloud. I can’t remember when you were like you are this day. Only the Son of Man knows what covered you since morning. And it is that thing that made the weather looked as if it is likely to rain.
31.        Is any wind blowing? Any sign of drizzling? What covered the camp? Don’t worry, the moment you go out, the whole thing would clear again.  Amen.

GOD’S PROPHECIES FULFILLING
Here is an excerpt from Daily Sun Newspaper of Tuesday, June 17th 2014. Captioned, “Pope Francis and Remaking Of History”.
2.           Pope Francis and the remaking of history. He is creating a history that was created before; he is trying to reenact it again. This was written by John Cardinal Nicon, who is assistant Pope. Every cardinal is assistant Pope.
3.           “In the weekend of May 31st to June 1st, 2014, Pope Francis was in the Holy Land on pilgrimage. He stressed the fact that he was going on pilgrimage as a religious exercise, to visit the Holy Places associated with the events of the Holy Bible, and especially with the life, death and resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
4.           Like other pilgrims, he visited Nazareth in Galilee, Bethlehem in Judea and the holy city of Jerusalem. During his pilgrimage, he had a series of important and historic encounters. He was not just an ordinary pilgrim: he was the Pope.
5.           He was not visiting just any sacred place but the Holy Land of Israel, a land of great spiritual significance to three main religions of the world; Judaism, Christianity and Islam…”
6.           Note, the three main religions.
7.           “…It was also a land of thousands of years of history of tumult and conflict, glory and splendour. Each of his encounters was fraught with danger and opportunities. Some Roman journalists said he was walking into a diplomatic land mine. With simple but powerful words and gestures, he walked his way safely through the land mines.
8.           He also successfully drew the attention of everyone to the crucial need to pursue the common objectives of peace and solidarity in a land that has become almost synonymous with conflict and sectarianism all across the board.
9.           At the end, he achieved the awesome feat of bringing the presidents of the states of Israel and Palestine to a “joint prayer session” in the Vatican gardens, an event that took place this past Sunday of Pentecost. This was, indeed, history in the making.
10.        The declared main purpose of the pilgrimage was to celebrate 50 years of the historic embrace of Pope Paul VI with the Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras in Jerusalem in 1964.
11.        That meeting started the journey towards the reunion of the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church, after about one thousand years of separation. The meeting of Pope Francis with Patriarch Bartholomew marked a major stage forward in this journey of faith and love.
12.        A history of separation was being remade along the way of unity and common witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ. A significant positive fall-out of this new era of rapprochement was the gracious presence of the Patriarch at the Vatican gardens in support of the Pope’s initiative of prayer for peace, along with the presidents of Israel and Palestine.
13.        In his visit to the Kingdom of Jordan and to the states of Palestine and Israel, Pope Francis seized on every opportunity to meet with the Muslims of the Holy Land, culminating in his encounter with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem in the building of the Great Council on the Esplanade of the Mosques.
14.        This is quite a long way from the bloody history of Christian-Muslim struggles for the control of the Holy Land.
15.        The Second Vatican Council already called for a healing of the sad and bitter memories of the past. Furthermore, this also gave him an opportunity to draw much needed attention to the precarious plight of the indigenous Christians of the Holy Land.
16.        We tend to forget that they too share the same fate with their Arab brothers and sisters of the Muslim faith in the tragic drama of the Arab-Israeli conflict, whether they are under Israeli or Palestinian state.
17.        His visit to the state of Israel was perhaps the most delicate part of his ‘pilgrimage’. The programme clearly laid emphasis on the religious dimension of his visit, with prayer at the Western Wall and courtesy call on the two Chief Rabbis of Israel.
18.        But, what captured the attention of the world media was his handling of his outreach to the political leaders of Israel. In simple but well calculated words and gestures, he succeeded in winning the admiration and trust of his Hebrew hosts without letting down the Palestinian Arabs. The Holy Spirit was certainly at work.
19.        But, even the Holy Spirit works through human beings ready to be used as agents. In the momentous event of the prayer for peace in the Vatican gardens on the evening of Pentecost Sunday, we all saw the Spirit of God working in everyone involved in the historic event, especially the Pope and the Patriarch, and the two presidents of the Holy Land.
20.        This was not just another ‘peace talk initiative’. The two presidents were not facing one another in confrontation or debate. On the invitation of the Pope and the Patriarch, they both lifted up their faces to God in heaven in prayerful supplication for peace.
21.        It is most refreshing to see religion at its best, calling on the One God to rescue his children from self-destruction.
22.        All this speaks volumes to the situation of our nation, Nigeria. Whatever the past may be, we can always remake history, seeking common grounds on which to build a better future for those coming after us.
23.        Pope Francis reminds us that it requires more courage to build peace than to foment conflict. President Shimon Perez says that to build peace is a duty we owe to our children.
24.        We should not allow ourselves to be discouraged by the difficulty of making a new history of mutual recognition, acceptance and respect.
25.        In the Vatican gardens, Jews and Arabs, Christians and Muslims, Catholics and Orthodox have sincerely embraced and prayed together. May the God of history grant us the courage and wisdom to reach out to one another beyond our historical baggage of mutual suspicions and across our present diversities of creed and culture!
26.        Cardinal Onaiyekan is the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Abuja. This piece is the sixth in the series of his ‘Letters from Rome.’
27.         He is seeking recognition from the Vatican City.
28.        Extract from the website. This report was endorsed today 26st of June 2014, by the Son of Man. Title, “STRIVING FOR UNITY: CATHOLIC CHURCH DIALOGUE WITH DISCIPLES OF CHRIST”.
29.        (Vatican Radio) Delegations of the Disciples of Christ are in Rome this week for a meeting of their dialogue with the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
30.        This fifth phase of the dialogue is focused on the theme ‘Christians formed and transformed by the Eucharist.’ The Disciples, or Christian Church as they’re often simply called, are a community which grew up at the start of the 19th century from the Protestant revival movement in the United States and England, though today they also count flourishing groups in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
31.        The Disciples of Christ describe themselves as a movement for unity, inclusion and wholeness in a fragmented world. To find out more about their history and about their relations with the Catholic Church, Philippa Hitchen spoke with the two co-chairs of the dialogue, Rev Newell Williams from the Disciples of Christ and Catholic Bishop David Ricken from the diocese of Green Bay, Wisconsin.
"1832 would be the point where we see the Stone-Campbell movement which gives rise to the Disciples of Christ....
32.        ...we are certainly a Protestant communion but I think it's important to say we do not have any history of separation from the Catholic Church...that means we enter the dialogue as one group of Christians seeking to understand another group of Christians...and we enter with that energy by which the Disciples began to be part of the fulfillment of Jesus' high priestly prayer that those who believe on the word of the Apostles might be one....." "
33.        What we're trying to do in the dialogue is to understand the language - they may use the very same terms that we do but mean something different by it...
34.        ..I've been deeply enriched by this association and it is interesting, now without new Pope emphasizing discipleship and the new evangelisation, I think our Church can learn a lot from the Disciples of Christ....how to form disciples and what it means to be a disciple in our world today..."
35.        Remember the idea is to show you what they are doing, what they are saying concerning Church Unity. The unity of the children of God is not this one.
36.        Children of God are united in the word of God. But the world organizations are united in the system. Why must Catholics be the uniting point of all Christians? Why must Catholics dictate to the Protestants conditions they will meet before they will become one?
37.        Thus, to them, the unity of the Church is measured by all denominations agreeing to be Catholics, for Catholic is the only Christian Faith that represents the Christian world in the World Council of Churches.
