A SPECIAL DAY ANOTHER GREAT DAY

Preached on 19TH August 2012 At THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE ROCK OF AGES” “Truth has no substitute” © BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE
I am The Ancient of Days, The Boundless One, The Unlimited, The
Undifferentiated, The Illimitable One; The Divine Emanation, The origin of the Universe, The Great Teacher, The Highest Judge. Believe it if you can…

—The   Son of Man

From the Message: THE INVESTIGATIVE JUDGMENT OF GOD BEFORE THE TRANSLATION OF THE SAINTS

If there is any time the Son of God has been exalted, it is now. Persecution has never allowed the Church to exalt Him.
     Really, when He will be exalted, He will not be exalted alone. By exaltation here, I mean, when He will be glorified.
          If the judgment of God is about to break upon the head of this generation, will the Church remain in the unglorified condition? The Church must be glorified before the wrath of God.
         
The wrath of God is the judgment of God upon the children of disobedience.
     Again, this will take place immediately the Church is glorified. The Church being glorified means the Son of Man being glorified. When the Voice went forth, it said, “I have glorified you, and I will glorify you again.”      
–SON OF MAN.
(NO DECEPTION IS OF THE TRUTH page 72, verse 56-59).

I AM THE CONSOLATION OF THE SAINTS
You are happily welcomed to His Presence. If you know you are really happy in His Presence, I do not care your face; just give me one song. Many people are happy. Why will you not be happy?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->2.          <!--[endif]-->Many, many years ago America decided to put in a research work to know whether there could be the happiest people in the world. They came out with a conclusion that in all their many years of research that they saw that the happiest people in the world today remained the people that serve God in Spirit and in Truth, and they are mostly found in Nigeria. In other words, the happiest people on Earth are mostly found in Nigeria.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->3.          <!--[endif]-->Well, I do not know the parameter they used. However, the truth remains that God’s people are the happiest people on Earth. If it does not give you joy to serve the Lord, something is wrong with you.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->4.          <!--[endif]-->I am not praying that He is going to do it; He has done it already, for facts bring the future closer.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->5.          <!--[endif]-->Anybody from Obosima in the fellowship? Brother Stephen, come forward. Bishop Nnachor, come forward. I still remember very well, you are the one that I sent to Papa Ikwuagwu! You are favoured again. You are becoming my errand boy. Even if you are accused of drinking it halfway and you know you did not drink it, do not open your mouth to defend yourself. If you are asked: “Is it half bottle?” Say yes. Why half bottle? God knows. Have you heard it? Is it half bottle?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->6.          <!--[endif]-->Has He decided to give me half bottle? God knows. Did you drink it? No! Did it pour away? No. Thus, it was handed over to me and He said I should give it to you. Tell him to speak to this bottle. He should open it and speak to this bottle the desire of his heart and then drink it, once! He should finish it once and throw away the bottle. It goes to Brother Ben Okezue.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->7.          <!--[endif]-->Rejoice in the Lord. Today is another great day. We have to rejoice exceedingly. We are the redeemed of this generation. We have to give God the glory. TODAY IS ANOTHER DAY, A SPECIAL DAY.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->8.          <!--[endif]-->Some people dreamt about today, some people saw today in their dreams and I thank God that we are partakers of today. We are not witnesses of today, rather we are partakers of today.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->9.          <!--[endif]--> Glory be to God in the highest. Peace be unto all men of good will. Anybody from Obosima in this fellowship? Brother Stephen, come forward, you are the one that took the last one to papa. You are favoured again, you are becoming my errand boy. There is no better place to abide in today, than in God’s Presence in Jerusalem.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->10.     <!--[endif]-->Outside the Presence of God, the whole world is feeling somehow, they are in pains, anguish without any comfort insight, because the consolation of the saints is in Christ. The only safe ground in the whole world is Christ. Christ in you, the hope of glory. The Solid Rock, stand there. In time like this, let your anchor hold fast and make sure it is no other place but in Christ!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->11.     <!--[endif]-->I want to consider the book “Golden Nuggets,” volume two as compiled by Bishop Fryde Okoh of the Household of God Enugu. His aim is to preserve the truth, to put us in remembrance always of the nuggets that were contained in some of the messages we have received so far. He will keep on bringing them to our notice from time to time.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->12.     <!--[endif]-->Note, no man can do this, except God is with him. This is what I expect the Elders to be doing, encouraging the brethren to continue in the Faith, more so as we see the days approaching.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->13.     <!--[endif]-->Egbema Household, if you do not have the boldness to say it, record it in your handset. When you get home, scratch that handset to that point; play it to the hearing of the owner of the message. When you get home today, go straight to the house of our brother, an elderly fellow, a traditional ruler; that is Elder Oduah; his royal majesty as he is being called, who has found favour of all the kings on Earth to be enlisted in the Household of God.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->14.     <!--[endif]-->Tell Elder Oduah that the Son of Man, Who is vested with authority to be in charge of His Father’s house, where he, Oduah is a member. Send this glorious and wonderful message to him this day; I do not know the date; write it down: That I said that he should cover his face in shame! That he has carried his rascality down to old age in defiance to the truth.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->15.     <!--[endif]-->This is the message from the Majesty of all majesties, the King of kings and the Lord of lords; that instead of helping to consolidate the faith of the brethren entrusted into his care, that he is busy destabilizing them. That in the day I will visit him according to the magnitude of his iniquity which he has perpetrated all these years, that his heart will melt, his family will fizzle out. A stitch in time saves nine. It is not yet too late. Thank you.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->16.     <!--[endif]-->If you are intelligent, copy it out and forward this message to him as a direct message from the Son of Man, from the Throne of Grace, in the Galilee of Gentiles, amidst hundreds of witnesses. Today will testify against him if he does not make haste to repent.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->17.     <!--[endif]-->Now, I wish to say something to the same Egebma Household. The Lord is not pleased with all of you, nobody is justified. You are all guilty. Instead of repenting, you are trying to justify yourselves as individuals. What is more, the greatest failure in life is self-justification.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->18.     <!--[endif]-->Starting from the least to the greatest, you are guilty and stand utterly condemned in the sight of God. Nobody is neutral there, all of you are guilty! You divided yourself into North and South colony. I can see from my Throne, Egbema South and Egbema North—Egbema North credited to Rivers State with its headquarters at Oginze. Then Egbema South with its headquarters at Umuoji.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->19.     <!--[endif]-->Egbema North was headed by Apostle Ugo, while Egbema South was headed by Elder Oduah, assisted by Pastor Promise. Egbema North is assisted by all that worth something there. Brother Ugo, take note. Deacon Ansalem, you are also guilty no matter where you belong to. Brother Loveday, you are equally guilty. Nobody is spared!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->20.     <!--[endif]-->This is not the time the priest should blame the king or the king should blame the priest. You are all guilty and stand utterly condemned before Almighty God!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->21.     <!--[endif]-->There is no good way of doing a wrong thing. You all went astray, you all departed from the truth. You were bewitched! Who bewitched you? The desires of your hearts bewitched you. Your hearts were drawn away, you were enticed away from the way of truth. It is not the wine you drank, whether you call it dry gin or opium, that condemned you. What condemned you was what was ringing bell in your hearts which have registered in the Throne of God.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->22.     <!--[endif]-->In all your petitions and defences, you condemned yourselves. For nobody could stand to accept his guilt. You were seeking justification and ended it in justifying yourselves. If not for one thing, I would have closed my eyes, harden my heart and banish all of you from my Presence.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->23.     <!--[endif]-->Be warned from now! Recognize where you have fallen, make amendment immediately. Brother Ugo, whoever that wants to become the greatest among you, should play the role of a servant. Besides, a servant can never be greater than His master. Tell Elder Oduah the same thing, for the way up is down.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->24.     <!--[endif]-->There is greatness in simplicity. The same way, there is virtue in humility. Humble yourself before the Almighty God and He will exalt you in due time. simplify your life and your character, THEN acceptING correction becomes very easy. Remain proud and haughty, and destroy yourself!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->25.     <!--[endif]-->You are not quarrelling for land allocation; neither are you quarrelling for oil revenue. This Household of God that is called by the Name of Jehovah, the Most High, from the very beginning till today, has zero tolerance for all figments of politics; be it domestic, be it tribal, be it ethnic or family. This most Holy Faith has zero tolerance for politics.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->26.     <!--[endif]-->Place your oil money where it belongs to; make no mistake of bringing your revenue formula into this most holy Faith, because I know that every hamlet in the oil producing community has their revenue sharing formula. Make sure you do not bring it into this most holy Faith, place it where it belongs to. Let it not come to my notice anymore! I know you produce dry gin, but the Son of Man drinks it. The Yorubas produce Kola-nut; the Hausas eat Kola-nut; while the Igbos worship Kola-nut. Yet, Kola-nut has never caused a problem.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->27.     <!--[endif]-->The land and oil belongs to God. Note it, that land belongs to God together with the contents of that land. If God is not respected, the revenue from the land which should have come to God; will destroy all of you. No iota of that your land revenue can be credited to this Faith. For that reason, the revenue formula of your community should not destabilize our peace. Place it where it belongs to.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->28.     <!--[endif]-->Your power tussle is purely political, and should never have a way into our fellowship. If you are desirous of this power tussle, enlist in any partisan group. There are too many political parties in Nigeria, align with one and then vie for counsellorship in your community, peradventure; you may win. Ask for leave of absent to go and practice your politics, the Son of Man must surely endorse it, one way. But do not bring it into this most holy Faith.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->29.     <!--[endif]-->This Faith is not a battleground where we come and flex our muscles. It is not a court ground where we will be arguing cases with intent to win our opponent. Thus, to the best of my knowledge, having pictured everything, I have seen your petitions and your defences. The whole summations that were made, all of them are filled to the brim.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->30.     <!--[endif]-->The allegations there are baseless, ferocious and dumbfounding. They lack veracity. Hence, they are petitions in nullity. So because your petitions lack merit, the Son of Man could not entertain them. Rather, I decided to go and see things for myself and I succeeded. There is no family in this Faith in Egbema I never stepped my feet into.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->31.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chijoke, you remain our brother, whoever that ordained you a Pastor is trying to destroy you. There is no ordination except from God. Whoever that ordained you a Pastor is trying to destroy you, you remain a Brother and be quiet in the Kingdom. Do the work of God in humility and you will be rewarded accordingly.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->32.     <!--[endif]-->In this Faith, we do not know who is who. That you are a biological brother or sister is immaterial, it is inconsequential. We do not practice partisan of residents in this Faith.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->33.     <!--[endif]-->Let me make it clear: experience has proved to Me that as many as enlisted into this Bridal Faith from the beginning because of their self-seeking, self-materialism and ended it in squalor. Your own cannot be an exception. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Where there is no case, there is no victory! Thus, in all the writeups as penned down by Apostle Kelechi, I saw no case submission. What is my ruling then?  My ruling is that both the plaintiff and the defendant are guilty; for that case, there is no victor, there is no vanquish. No winner, no loser.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->34.     <!--[endif]-->Go home, start all over again. If you want to continue in my love, go back to your first love. That which has been given to you from the very beginning, bring it back. Let me see that oneness, let me see that love, let me see that unity of the spirit, of the mind and of purpose for all of you are brethren.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->35.     <!--[endif]-->You must be perfectly joined together in one judgement and in one vision, minding the same thing, speaking the same thing; so that if there be any that walks contrary, even the Spirit of Truth will reveal. This is my judgement to Egbema and must be accepted as such!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->36.     <!--[endif]-->Of course you know you have the right to appeal in the lower court, but not in the Supreme Court. If you accept the judgement, say amen. Amen!


DISPUTE AMONG BRETHREN EXPLAINED
BY
APOSTLE KELECHI UWAKWE

DISPUTE AMONG BRETHREN EXPLAINED
W
e thank God whose love and mercy have been preserving us till this very moment. We trust and believe without any doubt that the same love and His mercy will take us down to where we all will be clothed with immortal body.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->2.          <!--[endif]-->“Dispute among Brethren,” volume one (preached in 26th September 2004), chapter three: THE MEANING OF DISPUTE AND BRETHREN, “This Dispute I am talking about among the Brethren, means somebody having a sharp quarrel that may even lead to death. If such should be found among us, it is a sign of defeat. If brethren cannot understand themselves, how can outsider create an understanding among them?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->3.          <!--[endif]-->WHAT IS DISPUTE? If you do not know the meaning of these two words, you will not know what will be the right attitude towards them. To begin with, what is a dispute? Dispute means conflict. Dispute means misunderstanding or sharp disagreement — I mean strife. Wherever there is dispute, there must be anger, there must be malice, there must be hatred and falsehood...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->4.          <!--[endif]-->Please take note of this matter. Note, because of forgetful spirit, our ministers are going back to our messages to study them and put us in remembrance. Sometimes we forget the messages God has given to us ahead of time to arrest this spirit that is trying to disturb our peace in Christ.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->5.          <!--[endif]-->Page 21 verses 10-11, “You know that dispute is all about a man and a man quarrelling. You may not fight on the street, you may not fight in the yard, you may not push yourselves, yet, you have dispute with your Brother or your neighbour.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->6.          <!--[endif]-->First, for there to be dispute between two persons, ‘love’ must be stamped out of their hearts...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->7.          <!--[endif]-->Before you can have dispute, strife between you and your Brother, or your Sister or husband and wife, God said that love must have been stamped out. If love is there, these things cannot have their way. Immediately love is in your heart towards your brother, towards your sister; there is no way dispute can thrive there. It cannot.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->8.          <!--[endif]-->Verses 11-12, “First, for there to be dispute between two persons, ‘love’ must be stamped out of their hearts. For where there is ‘real love’ in their hearts; we can disagree over a certain thing but it can never bring dispute because there is real love in our hearts. Where there are two persons or more, disagreement is sure to occur.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->9.          <!--[endif]-->It can be disagreement over management; it can be disagreement over policy, it can be disagreement over lifestyle. It can even be disagreement over expression of opinion. Did you get what I am saying? It can be disagreement even over money, but it will never result to strife or fighting as long as the ‘love of God’ is in their hearts. ”   
<!--[if !supportLists]-->10.     <!--[endif]-->Verses 13-30, “THE MEANING OF BRETHREN: Hear Me very well. We will go to ‘Brethren.’ From time to time, we hear ourselves making references to our Brethren— ‘My Brethren.’
<!--[if !supportLists]-->11.     <!--[endif]-->You see, Brethren means Brothers and Sisters. The general term put together for all of them is Brethren. Hence, when I say, ‘I salute you Brethren,’ I am referring to both Brothers and Sisters. Are you getting what I am saying?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->12.     <!--[endif]-->Brethren, if I say, ‘I salute you Brothers,’ it means that Sisters are not there. The same way, when I say, ‘I salute you Sisters,’ it means I have excluded Brothers. But when I say, ‘I salute you Brethren,’ I have now embraced all of you—male and female alike. 16. Please follow Me strictly.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->13.     <!--[endif]-->Who is your Brother? Who is your Sister? Because it will take Brother and Sister to make up Brethren. 
<!--[if !supportLists]-->14.     <!--[endif]-->I know that in Igboland, there are too many things we use that have no place at all; you say: ‘My cousin, my uncle, my nephew, my niece,’ this and that.  All these don’t have a good place in Igboland. We generalize all of them by calling them either by ‘My brother’ or by ‘My sister.’
<!--[if !supportLists]-->15.     <!--[endif]-->It is when one wants to know the extent of that brotherhood that you begin to explain that it’s my father’s so, so and so, ‘He is my sister’s so, so and so.’ But as long as nobody asks that question, nobody will know.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->16.     <!--[endif]-->Let Me say that your sister’s son is your brother, is that not right? Even a daughter to your mother’s relation is your sister. It is applicable to your father’s brother. But when you begin to differentiate with uncle, cousin, nephew, niece, it will be because people are asking you the extent you are related to that person.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->17.     <!--[endif]-->How are you related to this man  seeing that you are from this village or this town or this state and that one is from another state?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->18.     <!--[endif]-->For example, I married from Anambra State in Nsugbe. Now, I am from Imo State, my children have their maternal home at Nsugbe. I hope it is clear?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->19.     <!--[endif]-->Thus, somebody in Nsugbe from my in-law’s compound can call any of my daughters his sister, though they are at Mbaise. Are you getting the Message?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->20.     <!--[endif]-->And somebody who knows the man at Nsugbe very well, but doesn’t know the one at Mbaise may begin to query: ‘How comes that you from Anambra State is calling somebody from Mbaise your sister?’ That is where explanation will start. But as long as nobody enquires about it, that is my sister; that is my brother.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->21.     <!--[endif]-->Listen to Me. Your brother and sister is the one from the same lineage with you. Anybody from the same lineage with you is either your brother or your sister. Did you get the Message now?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->22.     <!--[endif]-->Your mother may come from Mbaise and you are from Aguleri. As long as your father married your mother from Mbaise, the lineage of your mother automatically becomes your lineage because you came from your mother.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->23.     <!--[endif]-->And the lineage of your father also automatically becomes your lineage.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->24.     <!--[endif]-->Hence, you can claim your relation from either side, where you want to say your relations are now from. They may be drawn from your mother’s side and your father’s side. You are now of the same lineage.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->25.     <!--[endif]-->That is why it is not out of place for a woman that is married from Imo State, resident here in Onitsha, with the husband, to conceive and give birth to a child that is a carbon-copy of her father or mother or relation at Imo State, who never knew about her pregnancy from the first day.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->26.     <!--[endif]-->Why is that possible? It is because they are of the same lineage. At least I have one in my family right now.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->27.     <!--[endif]-->Of a truth, I remember some years ago when the father-in-law of the Son of Man died. I mean His real father-in-law. Then we went down there for a burial. I did not know that one woman we used to stay together in Ose Market that time was a relation to Sister Odoemena. I did not know that. What is more, anytime I see Sister Onyi, I will be saying that Sister Onyi and that woman look alike.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->28.     <!--[endif]-->When we got there, I saw the woman, I looked at Sister Onyi; it was a carbon copy of that woman. It was then the woman asked us the question, “Why did you come here?” We said that we followed our Brother down there to bury His father-in-law. She was asking us questions; then she said, “He is my in-law. From there we knew ourselves. That is exactly what God is saying in our midst.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->29.     <!--[endif]-->Verse 34, “When you understand this: What do I mean by lineage? Once you talk of lineage, you talk of ‘blood relationship’ for there can never be genes without blood and there can never be blood without genes.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->30.     <!--[endif]-->That is why people from the same lineage do not behave alike. You may have your son resembling you, but the character will be that of your father. I don’t know whether you are getting Me?”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->31.     <!--[endif]-->You may have a son that resembles you in appearance or resembles your wife, but in character, he will manifest the character of a member of your family, either from your wife’s side or from your side who was not even there when the child was born. Do not doubt Me. It is possible! Amen.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->32.     <!--[endif]-->By Dispute among the Brethren, I mean quarrelling, strife among people of the same blood lineage, people of the same family, people that claim to have one man as their father and one woman as their mother having disagreement, quarrel, and strife. Now, I am narrowing the thing down for you to understand what I mean by “Dispute.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->33.     <!--[endif]-->This Dispute I am talking about among the Brethren, means somebody having a sharp quarrel that may even lead to death. Because, when there is a quarrel, nobody knows the extent it can get. You might be thinking you are playing, before you know it, somebody will slump down and that becomes death.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->34.     <!--[endif]-->I have seen situation where people quarrel, one slapped the other—ordinary slap—and the boy fell down and died. It can even result in serious fight where one uses Police to arrest the other. There in the cell, before morning, the one that was locked died. Please, follow Me strictly.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->35.     <!--[endif]-->Now we use carnal things to type spiritual. In this Bridal Faith, we have only one Father, One that begot us into this Gospel which is the Son of Man. There is nobody in this Faith that flied from the moon and entered into this Faith. Is there anybody? No.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->36.     <!--[endif]-->Then, we have only one mother which is the Church. In other words, we have only one doctrine, one faith, one spirit and we are baptized into one Body by the Spirit of Christ, hence we have become one.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->37.     <!--[endif]-->This dispute among the brethren which God is treating, showing us how dangerous it is for you and I to misunderstand and quarrel which will lead to sharp disagreement. If love is there, it cannot turn to dispute.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->38.     <!--[endif]-->“If it is possible, if it could happen in this Faith, then I call it: ‘A defeat;’ Because when a family wants to scatter, there is one thing they should do, they should begin to quarrel among themselves...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->39.     <!--[endif]-->That is why you see divorce cases here and there because the man does not understand the woman, the woman does not understand the man. Before you know it, a little thing disorganized them. However, we that have God as our Teacher, and He is teaching us all these years ought to know better that the aim of the enemy is to scatter us. God is saying that when a family wants to scatter, wants to disintegrate, wants to fizzle out; let them allow quarrel to start in their midst.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->40.     <!--[endif]-->Page 39, verses 7-8, “Because when a family wants to scatter, there is one thing they should do, they should begin to quarrel among themselves and that automatically will create room for their enemies who have been wishing that they would scatter to now come into work in them and among them so as to achieve their aim.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->41.     <!--[endif]-->Any family that does not want to scatter must maintain strong tie among themselves to the point that not even one outsider should have room to come in to deliberate over their family affairs. It is like husband and wife.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->42.     <!--[endif]-->Just like our Brethren from Egbema Household, they did not know that what is before them is coming there to scatter them so as to cause God to banish them from His Presence. They did not know that, they did not see it. The same thing is applicable to all the Local Assemblies; the same thing is applicable to all the families. For you and your families are integral parts of this great family. For whatever you wish your family is what you are wishing this great Family of God.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->43.     <!--[endif]-->If you want peace in your nuclear family, it is the same peace you are longing to see in this great family of God which you are a member. If you do not want peace in your family, it means you do not want peace in this great family. That is why this family cannot condone any family, any individual that love disintegration.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->44.     <!--[endif]-->There is one of our former brothers before, Simeon Omeigbo. It is one of the things that made us to excommunicate him because he always beat his wife to nonsense in the yard, quarrelling with his wife, everybody knows him for that. And you come down to the house of God. When people see you coming to God’s house, they will attribute the whole thing to all of us saying “that is how they behave.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->45.     <!--[endif]-->Let us watch the Masterpiece that is before us. Let us watch the Masterpiece, the Son of Man that is before us. Watch Him, the same way He handles His family; that is the same way He is handling this great Family which you and I are members. That is the same way He wants me to handle my family so as to make sure that there will be peace to the core.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->46.     <!--[endif]--> You see, immediately you allow dispute, disagreement, quarrelling into your family, you have opened a door for your enemy to come in. What is more, you do not know that your enemy, but your enemy knows you. He knows he hates you but you do not know. But he is just coming in to disintegrate you.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->47.     <!--[endif]-->Verse 9, “Number one step into disintegrating your family is by inviting an outsider into your case...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->48.     <!--[endif]-->It is unfortunate to hear that some of our Brothers so-called in this Bridal Faith will have problem with their wives, before you know it; they will invite heathens that will come inside their families to settle their problem.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->49.     <!--[endif]-->Number one step into disintegrating your family is by inviting an outsider into your case. When you have a little misunderstanding, you invite an outsider, you disintegrate the family immediately because the person you might be inviting might be the one that is instigating the trouble in your home.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->50.     <!--[endif]-->If all of us will agree with the Almighty God in our midst, He has given us a teaching that when there is trouble in your family, do not blame your wife, let your wife not to blame you too. If there is trouble in your Local Assembly, do not blame one another. However, sit down, look into that trouble, find out how you as an individual is contributing to that trouble. Somebody must contribute to that trouble. When you find out how you are contributing to it, the other person finds out how he or she is contributing to it, then the remedy of treating the trouble is at hand.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->51.     <!--[endif]-->However, whenever they flex their muscles trying to protect their ego which is nothing, to the detriment of the unity of the body; that person is the greatest enemy of Almighty God.  
<!--[if !supportLists]-->52.     <!--[endif]-->You see, I was talking to one of our brothers, I said, “Listen to me, the teaching God is giving to us is for us to accept His lifestyle and His character. The position you placed God in this Ministry, God allowed us to be in this great Body of Christ to see whether we can be obedient to Authority. For if you cannot be obedient to authority in this Faith, there is no way God will bring you into His Paradise. For in Paradise, there must be authority. There must be people placed in authority.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->53.     <!--[endif]-->If you check your behaviour now, that you cannot be subject to authority, you cannot come there because God does not want to see anything like offence, anything that can cause offence in Paradise.  
<!--[if !supportLists]-->54.     <!--[endif]-->Verses 9-13, “That person might be the one that has been wishing you and your family to scatter.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->55.     <!--[endif]-->You do not know because he works very close to you or pretends to be a friend—not until he comes in.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->56.     <!--[endif]-->Once he comes in, he will pair up with the party that is very, very boisterous or violent.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->57.     <!--[endif]-->When invited, instead of solving the problem, he will compound the problem. Because once he comes in, he will take side with one that is on the wrong side so that there will be strength on that one.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->58.     <!--[endif]-->After joining the man on the wrong side, the man will lose his grip and the family is gone. Why? Because once one that is on the wrong side gets a supporter, the trouble escalates...
<!--[if !supportLists]-->59.     <!--[endif]-->Just like what happened recently, if you look into the case of what happened at Egbema, you will think it is a light thing. The two parties were trying to get support either from the Son of Man or from Apostle Kelechi. They were trying to get supporters so that the thing will escalate. However, we were not like that, we cannot behave like that. We know more than that. We looked into it between the lines, and we saw the finger of the enemy. We saw his intention, we saw his plan, we saw what he wants to work out. While the people he was using do not know anything about it.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->60.     <!--[endif]-->That is why, this one will quote the truth, the other one will join the error there. The other person will quote the truth, and join the error there. Thus, for God to save all of them, He concluded all of them under disobedience.   
<!--[if !supportLists]-->61.     <!--[endif]-->Verse 14, “I repeat: once there is a problem in the family, bringing in an outsider, do you know where he will pitch his tent? Because he is an outsider, he must take side with one that is in error and condemn the innocent. By so doing, it will be impossible for the little problem to be solved and the family scatters.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->62.     <!--[endif]-->If such should be found among us, I call it: ‘A sign of defeat.’ If Brethren cannot understand themselves, how can an outsider create an understanding among them?...
<!--[if !supportLists]-->63.     <!--[endif]-->You have seen how God defined what “brethren” is all about.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->64.     <!--[endif]-->“...If Brethren cannot understand themselves, how can an outsider create an understanding among them?...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->65.     <!--[endif]-->If I cannot understand you, and you cannot understand me, how is it then that we are baptized into one Faith? Tell me, if I cannot understand you, and you cannot understand me, how is it true that we are baptized by one spirit into one Body, having one teaching? Is it possible? Is it true? One is baptized into that body, into that spirit, the other one is not baptized into that spirit; that is why there is trouble.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->66.     <!--[endif]-->You think God is not wise? He permitted that everything He is doing should be one, one. Only one. When He wanted to pick a leader in the time of the Israelites, He picked one person. Moses complained and complained, then He gave him Aaron as a Prophet.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->67.     <!--[endif]-->There has never been two people, two leaderships at the same time. Where there are two leaderships, there must be quarrelling until one gives way. That is why the House of God is the ground and pillar of truth where we believe strongly that the leadership in the House of God is divine. However, wherever people gather together, there must tussle of leadership, because they are not sincere to ask God to lead them, thus you will see tussle, quarrel and fight.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->68.     <!--[endif]-->In one of the messages God gave us concerning the administrative setup of the Church, God said, “The reason why I am bringing this teaching to you, showing you the position of all the offices in the Household is that when I laid my hand on you, placed you in any position; you should not be filled with pride.” This is one of the things.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->69.     <!--[endif]-->St. Paul said, “Why are you proud over yourself of what you said you have? Is there anything you have now which is not a gift given to you?”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->70.     <!--[endif]-->You are a Pastor, you are a Bishop, you are an Apostle, you are a teacher; is it not somebody that gave you that gift? If you can be proud, what of the person that has the gift? What will be His condition? What will be His position?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->71.     <!--[endif]-->This is what brings about dispute. First of all, recognize who placed the person there. Besides, you are not the only person that is qualified to be there. It pleased the Almighty to choose you and place you there. That is why He said that in a Local Assembly, there may be many Pastors, but one must be the leading Pastor. Others are supportive Pastors. There may be many Bishops, one will be leading; others will be supporting.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->72.     <!--[endif]-->These are what causes dispute. Another thing is that in this Ministry, all the office holders, we are check ministers to one another. That is why God gave us two legs. Without two legs, I cannot stand very firmly. Without these offices, if I am the only person holding this Church all this while; I will be weak. That is why God said let there should be Deacon, let there be Pastor, let there be Evangelist, let there be Bishop. All these offices; all of us help to check one another for iron sharpeneth iron.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->73.     <!--[endif]-->While we are alive, as many as are still alive in this Ministry, the reason why we are alive is because when we receive the rebuke from God, we do not see the person God used, we see God behind the person. However, if you are filled with pride, and you were rebuked because of your evil act, you will not take it. That is called dispute. That is the problem we are having.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->74.     <!--[endif]-->Now, if I cannot understand you, and you cannot understand me; how can an outsider bring understanding among us? It shows that we are not baptized into one spirit.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->75.     <!--[endif]-->“…Once you bring in an outsider, he will go to that my brother who is guilty and he will harden up and refuse correction. He will support him so that he will set the family ablaze and then no more progress.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->76.     <!--[endif]-->There will be no more progress. If my brothers from Egbema will be sincere, they will know that within that period all these troubles were going on, there was no progress among them. There was no success, or meaningful suggestion among them because they have become arch-enemies. The two of them playing individual game, playing as if they were not supporting any party while they were supporting one party or the other.  
<!--[if !supportLists]-->77.     <!--[endif]-->Page 33 verse 17, ”… because, in any family where there is disunity, where there is dispute.; where there is quarrel, there can never be progress there.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->78.     <!--[endif]-->18. The reason is that the brethren cannot reason together again—no meeting, no discussion, no fellowship—every man now works after the imagination of his heart, and then the enemy has achieved his target.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->79.     <!--[endif]-->Have you seen it now? There is an adage that says that a tree cannot make a forest. Is that true? God made it possible that we should live together. If I am quarrelling with you, that particular help you will render to me, you cannot render it to me again. I will be looking for someone to come and help me out of that problem, when someone that will help me is very close by. However, because the enemy has succeeded to place an enmity between two of us, I will be dying in my condition. The same thing is applicable to you. However, God said no!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->80.     <!--[endif]-->When you understand by revelation what brethren is all about, automatically; tears will be coming out of your eyes when you remember your mistake. Check under the Heavens, whether there has been a group like this group, the Bridal Faith. Go to other denominations, go to other places, you will see them poisoning one another in the midst of their gathering.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->81.     <!--[endif]-->You will come to my house we will sit down eating, I will leave a cup of wine there and go somewhere, come back and take it, drank without fearing any evil. You cannot do like that outside. You try it, you die off immediately.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->82.     <!--[endif]-->“…Now, once there is dispute, nobody benefits from each other again.  If I am quarrelling with Bro. John Ekwueme now, I won’t be useful to him again; he in turn will not be useful to Me too. Did you get it?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->83.     <!--[endif]-->I have narrowed it down in the way I feel everybody will understand what it takes to be Brethren...
<!--[if !supportLists]-->84.     <!--[endif]-->Watch your little children, if the younger one will beat the elderly one, you will see them trying to fight. You will say “No, he is your brother, she is your sister.” You are the one telling him, “this is your brother, this is your sister, do not harm him; do not harm her.” This is exactly what God is doing to you and I.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->85.     <!--[endif]-->“…I have narrowed it down in the way I feel everybody will understand what it takes to be Brethren. Maybe you do not know, even the Igbo people use to say it that ‘The annoyance of brothers does not reach the bone marrow, because if it does, there will be division among them.’
<!--[if !supportLists]-->86.     <!--[endif]-->That is why when you see brothers disagreeing; if you are an outsider, you hold your peace. It is like a case of a man disagreeing with his wife, if you are wise as an outsider, you hold your peace, you don’t talk anyhow, otherwise, when they reconcile, you will be their greatest enemy. They will reconcile without you. Amen.






CAUSES OF DISPUTE AMONG BRETHREN

APOSTLE KELECHI UWAKWE

CAUSES OF DISPUTE AMONG BRETHREN
Causes of dispute among brethren: what and what cause dispute? What and what cause quarrel, sharp disagreement among brethren?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->2.          <!--[endif]-->Nothing attracts the attention of the enemy more than a quiet and a peaceful home. You may have money, have everything, yet, there is no peace and quietness in your family. So, money or wealth can never make for peace in the home...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->3.          <!--[endif]-->Have this in mind, William Branham told us, prophesied that when the Bride will appear, the unity, the faith and the love among them will be so great that they will not love to part. Moreover, he went ahead to say that the enemy will not allow it to come and stay in that condition. In all the gathering of people that gathered together under the Heaven, that said they are worshipping God, the most quiet, loving and peaceful gathering has remained the Bride. But the enemy is not happy. And that is why God told us that the first step God will make to come into you is through your thought. The same way Satan will come into you through your thought. God has this wisdom and he told the Ephesian Church to make allowances for one another’s fault.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->4.          <!--[endif]-->What and what are likely to cause dispute among Brethren? Let us consider the following causes of dispute among Brethren: 1 straying away from the family order...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->5.          <!--[endif]-->There is no family that does not have an order. Every family has an order, has rules. When one strays away from that family order, then dispute is created. In other words, a vacuum has been created, a hole has been created for the enemy to come in.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->6.          <!--[endif]-->Page 35 verse 4, “Every family has a legal order. Once somebody strays away from that family order, he is bound to cause dispute.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->7.          <!--[endif]-->5. for example, if your family is known for peace and quietness, you love to live alone with your family, if a member of that family goes away and entangles himself with an outsider, he learns their habits, if he comes home to introduce it, surely, it will cause trouble, for many are bound to say no...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->8.          <!--[endif]-->Like this Bridal Faith, we have orders; we have rules and regulations of how we do things. Yet you go out and mingle yourself with the world, if you have any. You mingle with them, learn their evil habits and you want to bring it into our midst to introduce it, we will say no. Thereby; dispute has been invited.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->9.          <!--[endif]-->Then all of us will rise up and say “This character is not good. This behaviour is not good! Stop it! You said you are a man, you have come of age, and you cause trouble, because it is not good; because you have strayed away from the family order.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->10.     <!--[endif]-->In this family where we are living, which God is Son over His Father’s heritage, the Son of Man is a Son over His Father’s heritage. We are bound to obey all the instructions given to us. But when we go beyond the boundary of love of God, the love cannot reach you there; you cause trouble. Amen.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->11.     <!--[endif]-->“…if a member of that family goes away and entangles himself with an outsider, he learns their habits, if he comes home to introduce it, surely, it will cause trouble, for many are bound to say no.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->12.     <!--[endif]-->In other words, for a man to rise up against a member of the family, he must have been indoctrinated against the family order...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->13.     <!--[endif]-->Take for example: there is no total freedom under the sky. The same way, you do not have freedom to eat whatever you want to eat. Everything that is edible has a limit; the same way, everything that is drinkable has a limit. All we drink that are drinkable, has limit. However, when you engage yourself to earthly things, it will cause dispute.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->14.     <!--[endif]-->Talk about drinking, you will drink and drink and forget about yourself. Then you bring reproach to your family, you bring reproach to this Faith which all of us belong to. You cause the goodness of God which God give to us that we should enjoy; you turn it to be evil spoken of. Just like all these dry gins, it is dangerous to the health when taken too much. Brother warned you that this thing is too much, that you should not take it too much now; for it is not good. First of all sit down to listen, know the reason why your brother is telling you that this thing is not good. You are not under the Law but you are drinking too much to kill yourself. You bind yourself with a law that is not from God.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->15.     <!--[endif]-->I was talking to some people somewhere, I said, “The reason why we do not smoke is because we know that smoking is dangerous to our health. If smoking is good to the health, nothing stops us from smoking. It is like setting our money ablaze. But it is not good. Taking it, you are killing yourself.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->16.     <!--[endif]-->What am I trying to say? These things cause dispute among the family. In a family where husband and wife are staying together, you will see the husband saying that he is the head of the family; but nobody is disputing it over you about the headship of the family, have this in mind. You are not quarrelling with your wife or anybody that you are not the head of the family.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->17.     <!--[endif]-->However, you have to do things moderately as a reasonable fellow or person. You cannot because you are the head of the family then start to smash on everybody there whether right or good. Even a mad man cannot do like that.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->18.     <!--[endif]-->A mad man cannot do like that: coming into the house and starts destroying everything in the house. You come into your house, after drinking and drinking, behaving like mad person outside, you come in and you start beating everybody inside the house, beat your wife, beat everybody. Pastor Promise, take note! Beating your wife, throwing her property outside. How do you think people will be seeing you? How do you want people to look at you? How do you think they will see you?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->19.     <!--[endif]-->Any little disagreement, you start behaving as if you are not a human being. For a man to rise up against a member of the family, he must have been indoctrinated against the family order. That is to say that he has started associating with evil people who do not like the peace the family is enjoying. If you do not know, know it very well.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->20.     <!--[endif]-->The scriptures say that we are fighting a war not with human body but spirit in human body. You think people are not noticing wherever you are? They know you, they know what you believe, they are admiring you but that will be from spiritual composure. All these spirits will anoint them to come through words. They will speak to you, before you know it, you will be struggling over that thing.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->21.     <!--[endif]-->Remember, if your family is known for peace, it may attract the envy of your neighbours. Some other people may not like it, especially those that are having troubled homes. They will like your own home to be like their own.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->22.     <!--[endif]-->Once one is having a troubled home, such a fellow is not having peace. If he sees a family that is living peacefully, he feels very uncomfortable. If he tries to look into the secret of their peace, and he couldn’t see it, he will try to come up with a “device” to destabilize that peace.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->23.     <!--[endif]-->Nothing attracts the attention of the enemy more than a quiet and a peaceful home. You may have money, have everything, yet, there is no peace and quietness in your family. So, money or wealth can never make for peace in the home.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->24.     <!--[endif]-->PEACE and QUIETNESS, I call both a very big treasure, which cannot be purchased with money.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->25.     <!--[endif]-->Peace and quietness in the home, peace and quietness in the family is a big treasure which cannot be purchased with money.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->26.     <!--[endif]-->“…You can never purchase peace and quietness with money. It is a big treasure from God and not everybody appreciates it.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->27.     <!--[endif]-->Besides, not everybody is given that gift. How can you have that peace when you reject the Prince of Peace which is God, Christ Himself? In this Bridal Faith, one thing is to come in cunningly, one thing is to enjoy peace and quietness. What is more, the Prince of Peace among us in the person of Peter Odoemena is giving you the teaching whereby the peace can be imputed in your family. Before the peace will be imputed in your family, it should be first of all imputed in your heart.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->28.     <!--[endif]-->There can never be peace in the family without peace reigning in the hearts of the members of the family. Then from the heart, it comes outside. Thus, when you reject it, there is no way peace can be in your family. Number two reason why there is dispute in the family is where one feels cheated.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->29.     <!--[endif]-->
<!--[if !supportLists]-->30.     <!--[endif]-->Once one is feeling cheated in the family and he does not know how to communicate with his brethren, he becomes very violent.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->31.     <!--[endif]-->In other words, if he has the love of God, he is calling for a meeting, that is why he is making the noise. Intelligent people will now call him to order: “My friend come, what is your problem? May we know why you are disturbing everybody?”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->32.     <!--[endif]-->That goes to show that he wants a hearing. He is not disturbing outsiders, he is disturbing his fellow brethren so that they can give him hearing—it is not yet time for outsiders. Then, at what point can they invite an outsider?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->33.     <!--[endif]-->Among the heathens in the villages in various families where they want to live in peace, there is always a “legal order.” It is a punishable offence for a member of the community to invite Police for a member of that community without allowing the members of the community, the elders of the land to look into the matter.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->34.     <!--[endif]-->I mean among the heathens, it is a serious offence, it is a punishable offence.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->35.     <!--[endif]-->Sometimes, when one does it because he feels he has the means to do it, it may even make the elders to go to the Police Station to testify against the man that invited the Police, even if he is right.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->36.     <!--[endif]-->The whole community will troop down there to tell the Law Enforcement Agents that they know this man: “He is our son, he is a criminal and we want to tell you all his criminal activities; and look at the efforts we have been making but he is threatening everybody because he has the money to take people to the Police.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->37.     <!--[endif]-->Let me say something here to many of us that are office holders in this Bridal Ministry. Please, please, somebody placed you there for a purpose, that you will serve His interest and the interest of the congregation. See the position given to you as a privilege God has given to you; to help you first of all, and after, use you to help others. You do not use your position as an intimidation.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->38.     <!--[endif]-->That you are an Apostle does not mean that you will trample on everybody in your congregation. Nobody will say what you will hear and listen, because you are an Apostle, a Pastor, a Bishop, you have access to come to fellowship, nobody will see you; others will not have that means. Then you use it as intimidation to harass everybody even when your evil acts are naked before everybody.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->39.     <!--[endif]-->You should not use it because you have the means and in that condition, you start bragging. You can brag like that in the world, but not in this Holy Faith. For everything that is done in this Faith, it is done spiritually. We do not do anything carnally in this Bridal Faith. That you have access to come to the Son of Man; if you do not know, know it very well that you are dealing with the Eternal Spirit in human form that knows everything.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->40.     <!--[endif]-->You see, the report given to Me by brethren from Egbema and whatever they wrote down, the Son of Man did not glance at it for a second. He did look into it for a second to know whatever that is in there; lest you think He has gone through the whole thing. He has His own way of investigating things and that is the best. We are walking with a Spirit, He is an Eternal Spirit that supersedes all spirits, you ought to be careful!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->41.     <!--[endif]-->A time came in the time of David, God was punishing his enemy. David was rejoicing, then God said, “When I start punishing your enemy, I will stop and turn back without punishing them again.” David learnt a lot from there.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->42.     <!--[endif]-->You see God punishing your enemy, you start jumping up and down, God will just turn without doing it again. All of us that are privileged by God in this dispensation of grace of the Son of Man, allotted to Him in this our own day, He placed us in the position we are occupying, to be in that position calls for the greatest soberness that ever existed in the life of everybody.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->43.     <!--[endif]-->Without it, you cannot succeed. Knowing that you are subject to a Superior Authority that can question you at anytime, He that can even stop your breath any moment; yet nobody will question Him. Who will question Him?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->44.     <!--[endif]-->Thus, you do not do something because you are in a position, you can be heard, you can be listened to. And you say yes, you start quoting a message but you know that you are wrong. When you are writing a petition against your superior, be very careful. Sometimes, the superior authority will look into the situation. All the men that write always point their eyes there. Somebody will come and wrote against that person, another person will come.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->45.     <!--[endif]-->Sometimes we will say “Let us look into this matter. This director, people have been saying many things against him, have you looked into the findings?” That most of the things that are there are no truth. These things are what cause dispute.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->46.     <!--[endif]-->If you go to the message “Self-control Explained,” we have forgotten all these messages, but they are the bedrock of this Faith. “Self-control Explained,” for you know who you are but the personality He is presenting, that it is privilege, given to you to be a representation of Christ in your own dispensation, man and woman alike. Then you will humble yourself, respect yourself and respect the man that placed you in that position.  
<!--[if !supportLists]-->47.     <!--[endif]-->“…In the days of Saint Paul—remember Saint Paul died some thousands of years ago, and today, we have advanced from there. If we begin to live the life they lived that primitive period, we should be blamed.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->48.     <!--[endif]-->So, there were mistakes they made which we could not even attempt now because we have advanced very far. And yet, it is not preaching, it is living the life.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->49.     <!--[endif]-->St. Paul stressed on the need for tolerance, on the need for Brethren to accommodate each other in love, he also stressed on the need for peace, saying: “You should follow peace with all men...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->50.     <!--[endif]-->Is it not in your power to live peaceably with all men?  Let me tell you, we are the only group that has that power to live peaceable with every human being. If you know where you are operating, and you know how others are operating, then you should not bring yourself so low to such elemental sprit where Christ has brought you out, and they are under your foot. You just want to bring yourself down to strife and quarrel with things that cannot help you.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->51.     <!--[endif]--> “Dispute among the Brethren” Vol. 2 page 23 verses 1 “Brethren, it is very dreadful that from time to time instead of receiving good, good reports, I have been receiving some disheartening reports and sometimes I feel it is a sign of ingratitude on the part of my Brethren...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->52.     <!--[endif]-->Instead of receiving good, good reports, at times I will be receiving disheartening reports. Then it is a sign that you are not happy that God is helping you.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->53.     <!--[endif]-->“…There is one radio signal we used to receive in those days from FM Radio, Port Harcourt saying, “If you do well, you do it for yourself. You do badly, you do it for yourself. You play person wayo, na you go take your head carry am. You play person mago mago, you disturb the peace of somebody, na you go take your head carry am.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->54.     <!--[endif]-->For that reason, we have to be very careful when we behave towards one another. You have a God watching you and watching Me. There is an unseen eye, watching you and watching Me...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->55.     <!--[endif]-->Many of us have forgotten this, many do not remember that there is an eye watching them wherever they are going.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->56.     <!--[endif]-->I was going through a dream in one of our messages the other day. In that dream, the dreamer said in that dream, God said that not that He has not saved us but He is watching, checking our character and attitude towards the heathen, even the joke we are cracking, He is taking record of them all.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->57.     <!--[endif]-->If you are called up to remember the words that came out of your mouth from the time you woke up in the morning till now, can you remember them? But there is an original tape recorder that is recording all your activities from that first day conception took place in the womb and you came out in the world cry—the first cry in the hospital from where you were born till now, that recorder is still alive, recording all the activities of everybody, recording everything in your life. If you can remember what David said, “Where can I hide myself and the Lord will not see me?”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->58.     <!--[endif]-->“…If our stewards are accountable to us, I believe we are stewards to a higher Authority. Hence, all things are naked before the eyes of God whom we are having dealings with and, we are daily accountable to Him.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->59.     <!--[endif]-->If anybody is fooling you into believing that you will not render the account of your stewardship, please drop that idea or notion.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->60.     <!--[endif]-->When you go to the Message titled SEVEN STEPS TO REALIZING GOD’S PROMISES, you have done the reading but you have not even for one day studied the Message, that is why others are rejoicing, God confirming His Word but I am yet to receive report from Lagos, how God manifested what He has confirmed through the Promise, simply because you have not settled down to study them...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->61.     <!--[endif]-->“…Last week, I said it is foolhardy to think over certain things. Do not just sit down and begin to scrutinize unnecessary things, that is a sign of laziness—it is a part of lazy living, lazy life, for you to begin to give yourself to minor and inconsequential things...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->62.     <!--[endif]-->Minor and inconsequential things. You will just sit down and begin to say, “Brother Ben did this to me that day? Did you see how he looked at me? Did you see how he talked to me? These things are what bring about dispute and quarrelling.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->63.     <!--[endif]-->The enemy wants to severe relationship between us. For the scriptures say, “When we gather together in the fellowship, we worship God.” We come to fellowship with God and fellowship with one another. How can we be in fellowship in anger and strife? For the scriptures say that “The anger of a human being cannot work out God’s righteousness.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->64.     <!--[endif]-->We are brethren, we have one Father; we have one mother. The Son of Man our Father; the Church our mother. We have no other gathering under Heaven. That is why when we travel to where there is no fellowship, we cannot join all these Pentecostals and commit adultery with them; we say no. we remain ourselves.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->65.     <!--[endif]-->If I travel to Lagos now, though my sister is living there with her husband, I cannot go to their house; I will go to the house of Pastor Rotimi or one of the houses of Brethren there, relax and feel free.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->66.     <!--[endif]-->I remember the time we went there during the wedding of Bishop Justice. My sister came down there to the house of Bishop Justice with the vehicle of her husband. I said, “Brethren have their own vehicles that will carry me to the wedding ground.” She was asking me to enter; I said, “No I will not enter your vehicle. My brethren have their own vehicles here.” She pleaded with me to go and see their house and I said, “No. I did not come for that. I came for wedding.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->67.     <!--[endif]-->She was pleading and pleading, it came to a point I said, “Okay, go and plead with Bishop Justice so that they can permit me, so that I can enter your vehicle.” Because already, they have placed a vehicle here. She started pleading with them; then they said okay, that I should enter her own vehicle.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->68.     <!--[endif]--> Then she took me across the bridge where they were living. Inside the vehicle she was pointing to the house, I saw the house but I did not enter. From there I went straight to the wedding ground, from the wedding ground down to Bishop Justice’s house. From there, the following day I came back to Onitsha.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->69.     <!--[endif]-->You do not know what God is doing for us in this Bridal Ministry. The only safer ground and the only hope for humanity is this Bridal Faith. God gave us the message “Dispute among the Brethren” Volume one in 2004.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->70.     <!--[endif]-->If we count how many we were then, we were not up to twenty persons then. 2004, God handed down this message. What is more, many that were in this Faith now were not in this Faith when the message was preached. Yet you have not sat down to go through these old, old messages which are the foundational teaching in this Faith.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->71.     <!--[endif]-->Naturally speaking, when an elderly one is correcting the younger one; it is normal. Is that true? It is normal that the elderly one will correct the younger one. Is it not normal? It is normal, it is expected. That is what the elderly ones ought to do.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->72.     <!--[endif]-->However, when the younger one, through his exposure with the elderly people and the person is wise, refrain himself or herself from evil, and see an elder that ought to know better doing that thing, if the younger one corrects him; the elder will see it as an insult because he is a fool: “Why are you talking to me? I am your senior. You are rebuking me, you are doing this!”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->73.     <!--[endif]-->Such spirit can never be brought into this Bridal Faith; it can never have its rest in this Faith. No seat for such type of spirit for we are in this Faith as a check to one another.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->74.     <!--[endif]-->If the Son of Man is not correcting me, how can I know my fault? If all the ministers are not correcting me, how can I know my fault? Then when God will rest upon a minister, when we gather in the fellowship we pray that “God, we have come to your Presence and we want You to speak to us. Use any brother, use any minister;” any is any. He can be a small boy. And God will rest upon him and then discern your heart, discern everything you are doing, then give you that sense of belonging without calling your name.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->75.     <!--[endif]-->Don’t you know that God can enter into a little boy in our midst, call your name and tell you everything you were doing in the time past? Do you believe that God can do it? Then He rests upon a brother and reveals your secret behaviour, you see it as an insult. That God is insulting you.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->76.     <!--[endif]-->Certain time, we do not believe what we say we believe. We say we believe that any man in the pulpit is God in bodily form, speaking to us. Then God will be in bodily form speaking to you, you see the person as an insult; insulting you. You do that, you have no right to sit down in the congregation of the saints. You are the one insulting yourself not God, you are the one insulting yourself.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->77.     <!--[endif]-->“…God treats His Message without respect of persons. We respect one another, we fear God, so there is no position you occupy in this Faith that places you above others.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->78.     <!--[endif]-->You cannot be the Apostle and the Pastor at the same time. The same way, you cannot be the Pastor and the congregation. Will you live in the upstairs and downstairs at the same time?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->79.     <!--[endif]-->If you sleep and report all that transpired at night, you are a witch, you are a watch night: You did not sleep, you are like a watch night that slept and saw Lagos burning and then in the morning he claimed he was awake all through the night, while Lagos was burning in the night in his dream. The truth is that you slept then those dreams came.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->80.     <!--[endif]-->I am still saying that there is no position anybody will occupy in this Faith that will insulate the person from indictment, that will isolate the person from correction: we are all subject to be corrected. Everybody is subject to the Word of God; the essence of the Word of God is to build us up and not to pull us down.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->81.     <!--[endif]-->How does it build us up? By pointing out our faults to us...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->82.     <!--[endif]-->Do you see how the word builds us up? We are talking about dispute among the brethren. I should not dispute anything with you; I should not quarrel with you if we have the same spirit. “When you tell me Apostle Kelechi, this thing you did is wrong,” if I have the Spirit of God in me, I know that what I did is wrong. I must accept it with all humility in me.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->83.     <!--[endif]-->“…How does it  build us up? By pointing out our faults to us. So, the Word of God remains our mirror, from there we examine our daily behaviours. I am telling you the truth I know in Him...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->84.     <!--[endif]-->If you know you do not want any indictment, any rebuke, note, we are not like other denominations that rebuke people secretly. If you go to them, they will rebuke people secretly. They will not want to expose your evil. But the instruction we got from God said that he that sinned should be rebuked openly that others may fear.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->85.     <!--[endif]-->If you do not want your name to be mentioned, you do not want to be rebuked; keep away from evil. Run away from that thing that is what is commonly believed that we should not do that which the word of God is against. Make sure that you do not walk in those things. Any bush that is avoiding basket, should not allow mushroom to come out from it.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->86.     <!--[endif]-->You do not want insult, you do not want disgrace, you do not want your name to be mentioned publicly in this Bridal Faith; there is two things there: one: either you carry your bag and go and stay in your house or you avoid those things which the faith is against. Amen.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->87.     <!--[endif]-->Dispute among brethren, it is a defeat if we start having dispute among ourselves. Nobody is above correction.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->88.     <!--[endif]--> “...When you come to a point where you think you are incorrigible, that is the point you begin to sink; for whosoever God loves, He corrects.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->89.     <!--[endif]-->When you come to a point when you see yourself as one that cannot be corrected again, man and woman alike, that is the point you begin to sink.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->90.     <!--[endif]-->While I was going through one of our marriage messages, I came across where the Son of Man said that sometimes, His wife corrects Him. You will be wondering: “Son of Man, His wife correcting Him?” Yes! Sometimes, His wife corrects Him. Sometimes He corrects her. Is it in a tussle condition? No. Amen.

DISPUTE AMONG THE BRETHREN (2)
You have heard that my wife corrects Me, but have you ever asked Sister Odoemena “How do you correct Daddy?” However, some in our midst will come to their husbands, giving them a strict warning, pointing at their faces: “This is how you do it, this is how you always do. You did not take correction when I correct you.” How can I take correction? It is a warning and not a correction.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->2.          <!--[endif]-->A wife that corrects her husband is a wife that is filled with wisdom, understanding and humility. She will humbly approach her husband and say what she wants to say, not placing it in any other way but AS A SUGGESTION. Is it not our message?  
<!--[if !supportLists]-->3.          <!--[endif]-->“This thing you did the other day, what if we do it like this?” In a quiet and peaceful look, with humility. That is the greatness of politeness. You can be polite and fair and still press your matter home. However, sometimes, our wives bring out suggestion but the way they present it; make it unacceptable. The same way it is applicable to all of us in this Faith.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->4.          <!--[endif]-->If I want to correct my fellow minister with humility, with wisdom, we sit down together. Just as St. Paul said; after staying fourteen years in Saudi-Arabia, he went up to Jerusalem to communicate with those that were pillars of the Church. Did he go there to exercise authority over them? No!  
<!--[if !supportLists]-->5.          <!--[endif]-->He went there and sat down with them in humility with wisdom, spiritual understanding and took the thing down there. From where he was saying the thing, Peter saw that it was true, James saw it that it was true.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->6.          <!--[endif]-->That is why when all of them forced him to bow down to that useless doctrine of Judaism; when he recognized himself, he took Titus there, the second time without circumcising him. He was waiting for them. When Peter came to them, he was eating and drinking with them in the Gentile world.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->7.          <!--[endif]-->Then some young Judaist friends came, Peter saw them and started dodging. Paul called on them and said, “You are all welcome! How is Jerusalem?” How is this and that?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->8.          <!--[endif]-->“Now let me tell you, Peter you are a Jew, I am a Jew from the tribe of Benjamin. We all received this old oracle and we know that obeying these Laws cannot help us before all of them.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->9.          <!--[endif]-->Obeying these Laws cannot help us, we are not Gentile sinners and we know that obeying these Laws cannot help us. We cannot obey them. How all of a sudden, you are saying that these Gentiles should obey them, what we discarded? Don’t you believe that faith in Christ will save us?” Paul said this Before all of them. He did not shout on him.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->10.     <!--[endif]-->We ministers, the way we approach ourselves to give out correction, sometimes; we spoil the whole thing. You spoil the whole thing. In as much as it is the Son of Man that anointed you, He is the One that ordained you, yes; I am not disputing that. “Apostle Kelechi anointed this person,” yes; Apostle Kelechi did not do it by himself. It is by authority Paul was telling Timothy “When you get there, ordain elders. Titus, when you reach there, ordain elders and set things in order.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->11.     <!--[endif]-->Did Titus go there to do it by himself without order from Paul? No! That is why in this Bridal Faith no minister, no Bishop nor Apostle has any right to lay hands and ordain any office without the authority of the Self-existing One in our midst. If you do it, you are trying to destroy the person. That means a governor of a state can also appoint a national minister.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->12.     <!--[endif]-->We must be very careful about this thing. This is what cause envy and strife in the North during the time our former Apostle Joe was in our midst and Ben Adiukwu. All of them, because of the pomposity and arrogance in them, God looked upon them and said, “They are not ready to carry out my instruction.” Because every instruction of God is given to those that are humble and meek in the heart.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->13.     <!--[endif]-->Then instruction was given to Joe of Lokoja: “When you reach that camp meeting, lay hands on so, so people.” Lay hands on this and this. Ordain this, ordain this. Those big, big names, they arrogated to themselves those big, big names which God never gave to them.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->14.     <!--[endif]-->Immediately Joe in accordance with the instruction carried it out, envy started. All of them rushed there and placed hands upon one person. Anywhere he places his hands, all of them will place their hands too. Those things are what cause dispute.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->15.     <!--[endif]-->When you cannot humble yourself down before God, God can never assign you to any assignment. If you are not humble in heart and so meek before God, where God will discern you, He can never give you any assignment, because giving you assignment will push you up. Making you lord over another man’s heritage, dispute among brethren, we must be very careful among ourselves. No position you occupy insulates you from indictment.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->16.     <!--[endif]-->The Lord went further to say that correction can be done by anybody. A Sister can correct a Brother; equally, a Brother can correct a Sister. My wife can correct Me, I can correct my wife. Nobody is above correction. For no human being is a repository of all knowledge.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->17.     <!--[endif]-->When you come to a point where you say that you are the only person that cannot do any wrong, then you contradict the scriptures that say “no righteous man that sinneth not.” You condemn that scriptures and also condemn Prophet Isaiah that said that if you are always angry against human beings, the purpose of creating human being will be frustrated.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->18.     <!--[endif]-->If God started looking at us since the inception of this Ministry, do you think that He will continue with us till today? Thus, let us exercise that nature, that character, that behaviour which God is imparting into us. Then, how does God impart this thing into us? Through the ministrations we received from the hand of the Son of Man. When you receive those ministrations and allow them to settle down in your heart, before you know it; it becomes your nature.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->19.     <!--[endif]-->You say you are hot tempered, you can never be hot tempered more than Moses. You are not hot tempered more than Paul. You are not even hot tempered more than the Son of Man, to some extent that His people do not believe that He can marry a wife, that He can live with a woman.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->20.     <!--[endif]-->When He told His father that He wants to marry, they became afraid of Him: “Can He live with a wife? He will kill the woman.” Then what shows that you have met God on the way? Let us stop pretence. Don’t you know who you are? Don’t you know how you behaved before? Don’t you know your character? Then, what is the difference now? You say you are in Christ, supernatural, but something must take place in you.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->21.     <!--[endif]-->That is why Paul in defence of his faith was telling the Jews saying, “As you are zealous, so I was zealous to the religion of the fathers. I was more zealous, more than you people. Inasmuch as I receive letter from the high priest, I went from house to house arresting these people that were on this way, killing them. It was in one of the occasions I was going to Damascus that I met this Great Light on the way. Even, I was instrumental to the killing of Stephen, even holding his cloth, commanding them to kill him.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->22.     <!--[endif]-->Let us stop pretences. You said you are a hot tempered man; you cannot be hot tempered than God. What is the evidence that God has touched your life? all these ministrations you have been receiving all these years, all the supernatural evidences that are happening in our midst; have they ever touched you in one second. A second in your life will make a total difference.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->23.     <!--[endif]-->Thus, anybody can correct anybody: You correct me, I correct you. That is why we are brothers, that is why we are sisters. However, if I come to a point that I will not let my brother to correct me, I will not like my sister to correct me; I have had a problem I cannot solve.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->24.     <!--[endif]-->“Dispute among the Brethren” Vol. 1 Page 65, “Let Me tell you what I believe: forgiveness can heal a wound but it can never remove the scar. I repeat: ‘I have forgiven you’ can heal the wound, but it can never remove the scar.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->25.     <!--[endif]-->I am still of the opinion that general pardon is not general forgetfulness.  I can forgive you, but I cannot forget. I have forgiven you, but I cannot forget what I passed through. If I forget it, I am bound to run into that problem again. I have forgiven, but the experience still lingers...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->26.     <!--[endif]-->Page 66 verses 2 “...Let Me tell you what I mean. No Brother looks for a fault among his Brothers...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->27.     <!--[endif]-->Are we brothers, are we brethren? It will be very bad of me if to come around you and start looking for your fault, looking for fault from my brother and from my sister. What do you think that I will see?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->28.     <!--[endif]-->Page 61 verse 54,“…No Brother looks for a fault among his Brothers. If you are looking for your Brother’s fault, what are you going to do with it in this Faith? It is a stranger that will look for fault so that he can see something he can capitalize on and then make his case...
<!--[if !supportLists]-->29.     <!--[endif]-->If you are a brother, you cannot look for a fault when you come to your brothers. However, if you are a stranger, that is your duty now. You will look for a fault where you will capitalize on to do whatever you want to do.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->30.     <!--[endif]-->Somebody might be trailing you all in the name of Brotherhood, waiting for you to make a little slip. Once you make that little slip, he capitalizes on that, aiming at finishing your records once and for all. Is he a Brother? He is not a Brother. A Brother overlooks faults.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->31.     <!--[endif]-->”…Somebody might be trailing you all in the name of Brotherhood, waiting for you to make a little slip. Once you make that little slip, he capitalizes on that, aiming at finishing your records once and for all. Is he a Brother? He is not a Brother. A Brother overlooks faults.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->32.     <!--[endif]-->If God is to find fault with us in this Faith, who can be innocent before Him? Tell Me?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->33.     <!--[endif]-->If God will now settle down to look for faults among us, is there anybody in this Faith that will be faultless? Surely, nobody.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->34.     <!--[endif]-->I believe that  there is no way a young man will learn business from his master without being privileged to know some of the secrets of the business of his master.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->35.     <!--[endif]-->Nobody learns a business successfully without being privileged to know, to discover some of the wayo, wayo things that are accompanying the business of the master. He learns the good side, he also learns bad side. When he comes out to practice that which he learnt, he will practice the good and bad side.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->36.     <!--[endif]-->I am saying that I can only condemn somebody if I live above him. Anything I know I am guilty of, I don’t condemn a Brother who fell into that trap; rather, I will encourage him to cheer up. Because if I condemn him, my conscience will never spare me. If I do what I learn from you, what is my offence? I am saying something...
<!--[if !supportLists]-->37.     <!--[endif]-->“Dispute among the Brethren” Vol. 1 page 212,I am leading you in love. I want you to work with Me in love...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->38.     <!--[endif]-->Who is saying this? Almighty God in our midst, the Resurrected Body, using love to lead us. If I walk with Him, I walk with Him in love. If the Son of Man is leading us in love, which really He is leading us in love, and I am not leading you in love for following Him means leading you in love; am I following His footstep? No! You see, we have only one Father which is the Son of Man; and one mother, which is the Church.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->39.     <!--[endif]-->“...I am leading you in love. I want you to walk with Me in love. And when you walk with one another in love, Leadership is made easy...”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->40.     <!--[endif]-->Where there is no love among brethren, leadership cannot be made easy. It is love among brethren that will make the leadership easy.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->41.     <!--[endif]-->“…From love, all of us will enter into ‘Immortality.’ But some people in this Faith hate the word “love.” There are people that love hatred more than their food. There are people by nature; nothing gives them “joy” more than hating one another. They can stay with their fellow Brethren and refuse to exchange salutation from year to year. Moreover, it means nothing to them.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->42.     <!--[endif]-->In that condition, they will be in their best form: “If you tell them let us greet, they will say that they will not. But will tell you to get out of their way so that they will pass.” That person is from Satan.” Amen.

KNOWING THE PERSONALITY YOU ARE HAVING DEALINGS WITH
There is life both in the magnetic tape and in the publication. There is a reason why God permitted this matter to crop up. When I was talking to some Elders concerning this case, I said, “Maybe God has permitted all that happened in the Ministry of William Branham the Prophet to repeat in the Ministry of the Son of Man.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->2.          <!--[endif]-->You remember, the Prophet was in the pulpit a mad man who was very powerful, entered the fellowship, he was very destructive, people try to hold him back no way, both the police  very heavy man, the Deacons  rushed he over powered them, and was heading towards the Prophet to get him crushed.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->3.          <!--[endif]-->The Prophet looked up and looked down, then made a proclamation: “Leave him alone!” And the man was coming menacingly, there was no way of escape. The Prophet bowed down on the pulpit and made a private prayer, God arrested the hefty madman who was winding up his hand to strike, he ended it kneeling down at the pulpit with his head bowed down.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->4.          <!--[endif]-->I cannot forget the day when we were in the fellowship, our first hall in GTC, when our former sister—now late—Sister Elizabeth ran mad, very destructive and proceeded to the pulpit, the brethren wanted to hold her, because she was very heavy and strong, no way.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->5.          <!--[endif]-->I commanded everybody to leave her, and she continued coming, muttering unknown things. Gently I remembered that day and bowed down, commanded her. She even went straight to the pulpit, from there she went back to her seat.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->6.          <!--[endif]-->Another day was the day mama Chigozie come into fellowship in Jerusalem from Orlu. It was a memorable day. The first that called the Son of Man “Peter”. I will not repeat what took place that day, it was in 1994, that day we heard the message “Thus it Behoveth The Son Of Man To Fulfil All Righteousness.” That day with my eyes, I saw a white calabash fell off from her body. Two of us struggled to collect it, but I was fast to collect it and that was the end of the madness.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->7.          <!--[endif]-->For that thing to fall off from human body, it is unbelievable. It was like a snake coming out from the body of our Brother Isaac Utuk, in the day. After baptizing him, on laying hand on him a snake came out of his body. People ran away. He was afraid and he screamed, “I am dead! I have become a woman.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->8.          <!--[endif]-->In the message titled “God’s Trial;” William Branham handled it many years ago, a case like this came out: a white man and a white woman, they gave birth to twin, one was white and the other one was black. The man was contending badly that he was not the owner of the black child, while the woman insisted that her husband was the owner of the two children.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->9.          <!--[endif]-->It became a very big problem, that a woman could deliver a twin, one black the other white, the husband claimed ownership of the white and refused ownership of the black. Not on the basis of racial discrimination, but on the basis that he was not responsible for the conception.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->10.     <!--[endif]-->This matter was so hot, William Branham looked up and looked down, the congregation was filled, there was nothing he could do than to refer them to DNA test but before then, as a Prophet he knew the truth. When the test came out, he explained everything.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->11.     <!--[endif]-->I will not go that way, my own will be more severe than that of William Branham because I made all efforts to talk sense into Chinwendu for I was sure he was making false claims; I was sure!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->12.     <!--[endif]-->Before I will hand down my words, I will like to see Brother Chinwendu and the family in the altar. Brother Chinwendu, come forward with your wife and the controversial baby.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->13.     <!--[endif]-->I thank God that the baby is still alive. You see, I acknowledged the letter Brother Chinwendu wrote two weeks ago. It was read from this sacred pulpit, where Brother Chinwendu said that he was apologizing for everything that he has discovered that he is the owner of that child.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->14.     <!--[endif]-->That letter came to us through his Bishop. I acknowledged it and I made it public as well. I promised that everything about this matter shall be made public; nothing should be hidden for it is a serious matter—an acid test on my side.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->15.     <!--[endif]-->I commanded Brother Ojiakor to take Brother Chinwendu and his wife to anywhere the DNA test should be carried out neatly, and where they went was one of the best in Nigeria, Amblin, Enugu. What is more, according to the rules, they gave him three weeks to come back for it was not done in a haste.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->16.     <!--[endif]-->DNA test is such a serious test that a dead body can be tested to discover what killed the person. It is an expensive test and it can only be carried out when there is a very big controversy such as this. This is going to set some people free.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->17.     <!--[endif]-->I have in my file a written document, written in long-hand by Brother Chinwendu, addressed to Bishop Ifeanyi Eze, accusing one of his brothers over there of being responsible for his first two sons which was proved false, I filed it.  The day I filed it, I made a statement before Bishop Ifeanyi Eze, for I attached to the report, his own comprehensive finding.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->18.     <!--[endif]-->I told Bishop Ifeanyi Eze that I am filing this report because it is going to speak for itself with time: “Do not talk on this matter again. Another one is coming. Bishop Ifeanyi Eze if you are in the fellowship, confirm whether it is true or false?  He said it is true.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->19.     <!--[endif]-->This thing happened about four years ago. Today, another one has come. Things happened according to prophecy, even if God will not allow it to happened, once He remembered the word of His servant, He must create it.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->20.     <!--[endif]-->Of a truth Sister Chinwendu had already rolled into her menopause, Heaven and Earth can bear Me witness, her husband knows about it. Concerning barrenness, she was born barren. She knows that as a nurse. Doctors were aware, her relation in America who did everything even planned for her to come over there, they know.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->21.     <!--[endif]--> 
<!--[if !supportLists]-->22.     <!--[endif]-->You see, because of that condition, she voluntarily refused to marry, men were coming. I remembered when she was serving at Aba, suitors were coming. I remembered when she came to Me saying, “Daddy, how can I give my hand in marriage to a man knowing that I am barren? Will it not be adding sorrow to myself”?  
<!--[if !supportLists]-->23.     <!--[endif]-->I said, “Sister, cancel that word. Throw away all those rubbish reports from America and others. I assure you that you must do family planning. If the right person comes, marry.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->24.     <!--[endif]-->I thank God the right person came at last and he came in a very miraculous way. He succeeded in making the barren to conceive and there was no option than to negotiate marriage; and from there God started fulfilling His word.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->25.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Ojiakor, you were the one that took them to the hospital. Brother Chinwendu had been trying to come to my house but I resisted him. The same way I resisted brethren from Egbema who were pleading to come to Me, to settle matter with Me. I told them clearly that it was an impossible task. I would not like to commit contempt for their case was pending in Apostle Kelechi’s court. It will be an act of contempt if I am entertaining that. That they should all have patience, once he is through, he must forward the report to Me. They mounted pressure, both Elder Oduah and Brother Ugo, the two warring parties. 
<!--[if !supportLists]-->26.     <!--[endif]--> I want you to know the truth; the matter was so hot that Brother Collins (the police officer) had to intervene for them. The matter was so grievous that Brother Modestus from Umuederi has to hook it up in a dream, we have it, for we told him to document it. The dream was so serious that I have to give Apostle Kelechi instruction to finish up the matter, in order to enable me give ruling today.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->27.     <!--[endif]-->You see, the Lord appeared to him in the vision in the night, presenting Pastor Promise and his group with a pregnant woman who later became a man. Brother Kelechi frowned at it and prayed against it, then lay down to sleep. But the dream came back. However, this time it was Apostle Ugo with his group and a woman that was pregnant who later became a man.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->28.     <!--[endif]-->Pastor Dan was there when we were sharing these dreams. Even Pastor Thomas was there. I said okay to Brother Kelechi, “I do not want to see whatever you have put down, use this night to finish everything, help them to be in Jerusalem on Sunday. I am giving my own verdict because from the day they started appealing to Me, I focused my satellite at Egbema.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->29.     <!--[endif]-->I am giving my own verdict because from the day it was revealed to me, I focused my satellite at Egbema. The report I got from Ugo on Sunday 12th August 2012, was in a spiral binding. I did not open it. I sent it to Igwe Amobi to file for I was not interested in it.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->30.     <!--[endif]-->Now, we come over to this case again. Saturday 18th August 2012, Chinwendu came to my house very late. My son called me, I met him at the corridor, he was trembling. I enquired why he came and he said that he came from Enugu, that Apostle Ojiakor ordered him to go and see me, and to give Me the report of their findings.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->31.     <!--[endif]-->I said “No, no, no! He erred exceedingly.” I was talking to Apostle Ojiakor over the phone, less than three minutes ago. He would not have done that without telling Me. The Voice said, “Apostle Ojiakor should take you to where you will do the test. You will do the test, bring all of you here and make your findings public.” He (God) did not say you should go and show me. I wonder how you will go back to your house this night only to be back tomorrow morning.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->32.     <!--[endif]-->I asked, “Won’t you come tomorrow?” He said he will come. Coming here this morning, I saw the wife sitting down in the fellowship. I wondered how she would have made it from the house and be in the fellowship this time. I asked, “Did you sleep in Onitsha?” She said yes. That she slept with her people at Ogidi.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->33.     <!--[endif]-->I asked again, “Were you aware that your husband came to Me?” She said yes. “Was he there with you?” She said yes. I said, “But he was giving Me the impression that he was going to Eha-Amufu. I was showing sympathy, blaming Brother Ojiakor.” I called Brother Kelechi, “Come and see what is happening! What type of man is this?”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->34.     <!--[endif]-->It is better you know the Personality you are having dealings with.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->35.     <!--[endif]-->Now we have revisited the matter so that it will be fresh, it is like it is happening now. We would like to know what is contained in this letter.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->36.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: Brother Ojiakor, Were you the one that took them to that place?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->37.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Ojiakor: I gave them form and then gave the director a note.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->38.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: can this be an impersonation?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->39.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Ojiakor : no sir.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->40.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: is it original?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->41.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Ojiakor: it is original.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->42.     <!--[endif]-->I do not know if a medical body, a co-operate outfit will allow their letterhead to be used to run down all these test reports. Is it possible? No. What is more, it was fully stamped by the medical doctor, not ordinary technicians. For they run an ultramodern laboratory and hospital.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->43.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: My friend, did they interpret it to you? Who collected it? Were you the one that collected it? Was it interpreted to you?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->44.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: It was not.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->45.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: So you do not know the contents?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->46.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu : Brother Ojiakor interpreted it to me.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->47.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: Okay, he did the interpretation to you? Are you sure?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->48.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: Yes sir.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->49.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: can’t you interpret it yourself?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->50.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: I cannot.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->51.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: What stops you from telling the people to interpret it for you?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->52.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: I did not go to that extent.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->53.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: Then, you brought it down to Brother Ojiakor?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->54.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: Yes sir.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->55.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: Do you believe that the interpretation is perfectly correct?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->56.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: It is perfectly correct sir.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->57.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: If you do not believe, we can send it to somebody else who will interpret it.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->58.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: I believe it sir.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->59.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: Brother Ojiakor, did you interpret it to him?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->60.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Ojiakor: Yes sir. It came opened. There was a pin here, and I inquired what was attached here that has to be removed before bringing it to me. He said he removed something.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->61.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: What did you remove?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->62.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: I went to collect it from the woman that issued it to me. There was a flyer pinned to the side.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->63.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: But this is the comprehensive report. Examine it again. Was it tampered with in any form or shape?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->64.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: No sir.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->65.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: Was it tampered with? Was this what you collected?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->66.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: Yes sir.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->67.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: Was this what you collected?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->68.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: Yes sir.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->69.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Ojiakor holds it.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->70.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: were you satisfied with the interpretation Brother Ojiakor gave you?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->71.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: I was.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->72.     <!--[endif]-->This is a serious matter! Do you think it is an easy thing for a man to appear before the whole public and accuse his wife to this magnitude that he is not responsible of the child? He made the accusation publicly and not privately. Before he was courageous to make it public, do you know the height of controversy that has gone in the family? Do you know how many people Chinwendu has already named at Eha-Amufu and Nsukka? Do you know how they are feeling about it?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->73.     <!--[endif]-->If you do not know, I remembered I played a role in employment of Sister Chinwendu. It was worked out by Bishop Moses and his wife. Bishop Moses’ wife and Sister Chinwendu are sisters; and she was staying with them in their own house at Eha-Amufu. When the opportunity came out for the position of a nurse, Bishop Moses alerted Me, told Me his plan, and I agreed.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->74.     <!--[endif]-->We sent for Sister Chinwendu from Aba where she was serving in a private hospital to come over. She succeeded in gaining that gap. In the case of Chinwendu, the same thing. Let it be known to all of you that the same Bishop Moses compassionately allowed them to take his apartment.  Instead of occupying there freely, Chinwendu courageously wrote a letter to the Provost of the college, asking for that house to be allotted to him; excluding the Bishop who is a staff of the same college, while he was battling to save his life.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->75.     <!--[endif]-->It is on record before Me that for over four years, Chinwendu has never said “remain blessed” to Bishop Moses, either in the school or in the fellowship or even if they met on the way. The accusation was so furious, so wild, ranging from indoctrinating the wife, not letting her bank account known to the husband as if she is paying her money into Bishop Moses’ account.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->76.     <!--[endif]-->There is nothing I have never heard with my ears. Even the marriage between the two, Chinwendu contributed nothing. The wife can bear witness, I am aware. We are living in a terrible world where people are extremely ungrateful and unthankful. Do good to them, they will pay you back with evil. Simply because his wife went to Nsukka to do a course for four months, came back; Chinwendu disowned the pregnancy.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->77.     <!--[endif]-->Even Chinwendu was quoted as having said that his wife should not stay in the house of Bishop Moses. That instead of that, she should go and stay with a heathen at Nsukka during that period she underwent that course.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->78.     <!--[endif]-->I want you to know the extent his heart is bad towards Bishop Moses and the family, and many other brethren whose names I will not mention. Thus, let nobody ever blame Me for pinning my feet on the ground, insisting that they must do DNA test which I know is the highest test anybody can do to satisfy Chinwendu and his likes of people among us, for there might be some people like him.  
<!--[if !supportLists]-->79.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: Brother Ojiakor, from what you are holding from the laboratory result, which you have already interpreted to Chinwendu, summarise what is the conclusion of the matter. Did the result prove that Brother Chinwendu is the owner of the child or this child should be given to God? Note, we have no other God but one.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->80.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Ojiakor: The summary of the result shows that hundred per cent (100%), Chinwendu is the father of this baby.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->81.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: Hundred percent! So it is hundred percent! In spite of the apology Brother Chinwendu wrote ahead of time, telling us he now realized where he erred.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->82.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: Without duress, without fear of any embarrassment or victimization, can you please confirm before the brethren whether this result is true or false?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->83.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: I confirmed that the result is true.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->84.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: So you are the owner of this child?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->85.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: Yes.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->86.     <!--[endif]-->The Son of Man: Do you believe also that you are the owner of the first two children before this present one? I have a write-up you wrote with your hand. Igwe Amobi, please come with Eha-Amufu file in our next fellowship on Sunday. Especially, those letters that were forwarded to Me by Bishop Ifeanyi Eze, with the attachment which Chinwendu wrote with his own hand.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->87.     <!--[endif]-->That dry gin and Indian hemp will vanish from his eyes today, because I have noticed that once you begin to take narcotics, especially your favourite Indian hemp, you will become mad and in that your mad condition anything can come out of your mouth; because you are a free writer, you write rigorously and in that influence, picking a paper and begin to write becomes very easy. I have not less than five writings in your own long-hand and they are in your file here.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->88.     <!--[endif]-->I do not destroy documents, even if they are against Me. Write it if you can and I will also file it. So it has become very clear to you that the revealed Christ in our midst is not the owner of this child? No Holy Ghost impregnated your wife, no brother in Nsukka or Ehamufu impregnated your wife, you are the owner 100 percent.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->89.     <!--[endif]-->This case is more serious than the one King Solomon handled. That of King Solomon was a psychological case; because psychologically no rightful owner of a child will live to see the child being sliced into two. It will be better for her to forfeit that baby. It is a lighter case than this. Today is going to be the end of that Indian hemp.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->90.     <!--[endif]-->You see, because of Indian hemp he smashed his Mercedes Benz. Brother Chinwendu has become a useless man everywhere, even before his relations. Who will believe that Brother Chinwendu is a civil servant? Even the way he appeared in the fellowship that day he came to dedicate his child; he is more respectful today than that day. That anger was written on his face, the disapproval was there, for he was looking very haggadic and rough.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->91.     <!--[endif]-->Now I am going to punish him. The punishment that I am going to give him will serve as a lesson to others. Before you accuse anybody of anything, even if it is your wife or your husband, you think twice. I am not handling it under fundamental human rights. If I should go that way, before every Brethren I am handing your wife over to her parents right now, because I was the One that wedded you and before everybody I will dissolve the marriage. This is a high accusation but I will not go that way.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->92.     <!--[endif]-->Begin to wonder what your in-laws will do when they hear this thing, more so when your wife has been taking care of you all these years, covering your nakedness, making you feel like a man. Instead of being thankful you decided to disgrace her publicly because you feel that you can do it.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->93.     <!--[endif]-->As many as that have this kind of spirit, I am punishing Chinwendu to serve as a deterrent to others. I thought of dissolving this marriage, I even said it to the hearing of some people. Some brethren heard it from my mouth that I am going to dissolve this marriage because there is nothing that she is gaining in the marriage; when your people have not even received her as your wife. Your people are on your throat seeking to kill you because of your reckless behaviour.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->94.     <!--[endif]-->Up to this moment, you have not given your wife a place in your father’s compound. What is she gaining in the marriage? When your mother in-law died, to cover your nakedness, your wife took over everything. Are you not ashamed of yourself? Sister, go back to your seat for you did not commit any crime. You are justified before God.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->95.     <!--[endif]-->Chinwendu stand up and receive your judgment (because he was on his knees).
<!--[if !supportLists]-->96.     <!--[endif]-->I want everybody in the Local Assembly to document the whole thing. Chinwendu stand up and receive your judgment. If you do not want to stand, I will make it impossible for you to stand up again. I am not happy! I am not happy! Enough is enough! In short today should be your happiest day for I was limping between two opinions, one: To restore this lady back to her parents or to make her a widow. These two things have been running across my mind because from the very onset I knew that you were humiliating her in vain. What is more, I know the cause.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->97.     <!--[endif]-->Look at the cause. A man of this magnitude, an officer in the federal government, a graduate so to say, a hooligan I picked from the forest; I remembered that Bishop Moses is still owed five hundred and fifty naira which he paid to the people he bought Indian hemp from, on credit. To get him rehabilitated Bishop Moses gave him money for business.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->98.     <!--[endif]-->Immediately the business started flourishing, he abandoned the Faith and hooked a heathen girl and they were walking up and down until they finished that money.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->99.     <!--[endif]-->His teeth became black than that of a goat. I pleaded that they should continue to help him. I went to Eha-Amufu twice for his sake. I cannot forget the word of his mother and the younger brother about him. They are happy with this Faith but they are not happy with their son. He is the one stumbling them.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->100. <!--[endif]-->If not for one thing, I would have said that it is a curse for one to be a woman. However, it is not a curse, it is a blessing. For if all human beings should have remained like Adam, only one person would have remained in this world. There is no way a human being could be reproduced without a woman.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->101. <!--[endif]-->If men are being mentioned, Chinwendu will come out. Women, I pity you! Even those that do not worth anything, they will claim head of the family. Saying I am the head of the family. I am the head of the family. You must obey my word. All because you are wearing trouser; because you have manhood. If that is what made you a man, the madman at Nkpor Junction is the head of a family. Amen.

I AM THE SUPREME JUDGE
Note it, a good number of women command respect more than men. A woman with integrity is more presumed and preferred to a huge, lanky, well-looking man that is good for nothing. Only such people can brag, “I am a man, I am a man!”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->2.          <!--[endif]-->You are a man and at your age you are taking delight in smoking Indian hemp. Tell me what you will tell your children. Every time, you want to present your child to God, have you presented yourself to God for one day?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->3.          <!--[endif]-->Tomorrow you will accuse your children of disobedience to God, but have you ever obeyed God for one day? Experience has shown that people that accuse their children or wife have not obeyed God’s word and they have been the most guilty. However, they use their position saying, “I am a man, I am the head of the family,” to cover themselves.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->4.          <!--[endif]-->Any way I love my family for one thing; I remember those days Brother Chike was acting stubbornly because he felt that he was a Bishop. Elder Nwosu was sitting down there reacting. Brother Chike in his own action said, “I have the right to send you out of this Church!” Elder Nwosu said, “I also have the right to go out of this Church.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->5.          <!--[endif]-->You are not the only one that has the right to send your wife away but your wife also have the right to walk away from the house and let us see who will suffer the pain.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->6.          <!--[endif]-->Your wife can only feel the pain if you are the provider, if you are playing the protective role, but not when your wife is the provider and the protector of the family, then you think that you can reject her or embarrass her, or threaten her of sending her to her parents. Brother Chinwendu, thank your star today! Just thank your star!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->7.          <!--[endif]-->Brethren have already heard it from my mouth that I am going to dissolve this marriage, so that I will place it on record. Credit it to me. Do not ask me how William Branham ended his own for I am not William Branham; I am the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, the revealed Christ of this day.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->8.          <!--[endif]-->I HAVE NEVER FOR ONE DAY USED MY AUTHORITY ON ANYBODY. WHAT IS MORE, GOD WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO USE IT UNJUSTLY. DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY OTHER PLACE TO RUN TO EXCEPT ME?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->9.          <!--[endif]-->THIS IS WHY I DO NOT RESIST WHATEVER PEOPLE SAY. WHATEVER YOU WANT TO SAY, SAY FOR IT IS YOUR RIGHT. IF YOU WANT TO ACT, YOU ACT. IF THERE IS ANYONE HIGHER THAN ME, WHO IS THAT PERSON?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->10.     <!--[endif]--> I AM THE SON, I AM THE FATHER. I HOLD THE KEY TO HELL AND TO HEAVEN. I MAKE LAWS AND I CANCEL LAWS. I AM THE SUPREME AUTHORITY, THE SUPREME INTELLIGENCE, THE SUPREME JUDGE, THE JUDGE OF ALL FLESH.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->11.     <!--[endif]-->WHEN YOU HEAR “I AM THE LORD, THE GOD OF ALL FLESH,” WHERE DO YOU LOOK AT? SEE HIM IN YOUR MIDST. THE LORD, THE GOD OF ALL FLESH, WHO SAID, “IS THERE ANYTHING IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO DO?” FOR WITH HIM ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE; BOTH LIFE AND DEATH.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->12.     <!--[endif]-->Note it, if I kill you, you have died in vain. However, woe is Me if I should use my power or authority unjustly.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->13.     <!--[endif]-->Jesus the Christ had that power in Him but He did not go about cutting down trees so that the world will believe. Not all that died before Him that He resurrected. No, He never resurrected all that died while He was on the scene, no. He did not heal all that were sick.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->14.     <!--[endif]-->Of all the people that were leprous, how many did He address? Whatever He did, He did it to give the Father glory. Anything that will not give the Father glory, He never attempted it.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->15.     <!--[endif]-->I hope that all the Nnachors are in the fellowship? Brother Nnamdi, are you in the fellowship? Let the whole brethren bear Me witness.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->16.     <!--[endif]-->Bishop Nnachor is provoking Me to anger by tempting Me. That which you know the truth about, you do not need anybody to begin to teach you that again. Do not ever come to Me to discuss it because you know the truth about it.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->17.     <!--[endif]-->The other time you heard what I said, that a Brother came to me to ask me to permit him to go and do his industrial training which he could be doing even on Sundays. To his greatest surprise I told him to go. Then I came to the fellowship and announced how foolish and stupid he was, coming to Me to make such a request, which means he does not believe anything. If at his age he does not know the extent his faith will carry him, he is not a part of this Ministry.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->18.     <!--[endif]-->Bishop Nnachor came to Me precisely on Friday to inform Me that he has come to my house on two occasions and he missed Me, telling Me that they lost one of their sons who was buried about three weeks ago. I told him that I know about it that we were working together that time.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->19.     <!--[endif]-->He said that they will like to go home to do what they call Izu-ito. That he will verify from Romanus, that it is a heathen’s ceremony, that Romanus does not participate in that, and on his own side that he does not know much about it, that the thing will be done on Sunday, hence he will like to be there with his children on Sunday. I said, “Ok, you are free.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->20.     <!--[endif]-->I saw him this morning in the fellowship and I was inquiring why he did not go, he said no, that they will like to go maybe at the middle of the service today. I said, “Okay, you are permitted. But take note, your son, Chidozie is not coming back today because I do not want him to participate in whatever you are going to do in Anam today.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->21.     <!--[endif]-->He wanted to travel by night so that he will be in the fellowship today and I said no that he should go to fellowship in Lagos, and Monday morning he should come down. The same thing I approved for Brother Chibuzor at Nsukka, to fellowship with the brethren at Nasarawa today then Monday morning he should start coming back.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->22.     <!--[endif]-->Thus, Bishop said okay that he will like to go with the rest. I said, “Okay, no problem! When the time comes, you go.” Precisely quarter-to-one this afternoon he came to Me to remind me that the time is ripe for him to go. I said, “With all pleasure! You said that it is today? Go now!” I kept silent.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->23.     <!--[endif]-->When Brother Nnamdi came with the same matter, I pinned it on him saying; “Will you like to follow your father to that thing?” He was rambling within the two opinions, that he will like to go and come back today. I said, “Ok you will like to go and come back today? Okay no problem, go.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->24.     <!--[endif]-->I kept quiet. When a wicked man wants to die, he must lay hand on some people. A little while, I noticed some movements around our youths; Emmanuel, Chibuko and so on, and I know that they were about to go. Brother Emma had already crossed the door, Brother Chibuko joined and I stopped him. I told him to go and bring Emma back, he never knew my reasons. When they came back I commanded them to sit down.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->25.     <!--[endif]-->I think that James Nnachor is the head of the family because it was so he introduced to us when we went to Anam; that he is the head of their kindred and he is a Bishop. Since he deemed it fit to arrange a heathen feast, a heathen ceremony in his family which he had already told Me that his brother, Romanus does not attend such a thing, and he himself does not know much about it, that they call it Izu-ito, he fixed it on Sunday and now lured all these youths to go and kill them there.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->26.     <!--[endif]-->It will be the height of wickedness for me to allow these innocent boys to be partakers of Bishop Nnachor’s evil heart.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->27.     <!--[endif]-->For I am making it public. Bishop Nnachor does not know what the faith is all about. Thus, Pastors and Elders, bring him to order or else the Son of Man will not attend his burial. This is the much I want to say there.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->28.     <!--[endif]-->Am I against the burial of your loved ones? Anybody who fixes the burial of his mother or father or relations on Sunday, of course he has indirectly told me that I am not involved. For that is the only way he can exclude me by putting it on Sunday.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->29.     <!--[endif]--> More so when the person has been buried since three weeks. But this one is a cerebration feast where masquerade will be coming and they will be beating drums for Bishop Nnachor and group. Foolish boys wake up to join him. You are all stupid. You are stupid.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->30.     <!--[endif]-->If you are intelligent you will pray for God to place opportunities like this to enable you advertise your faith. Through something like this your people will know exactly your stand. In future they will never allow that thing to be fixed on Sunday for they know the implication.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->31.     <!--[endif]-->However, watch the head of the family himself approving it. For if Bishop did not approve it, nobody will hold it for he is the head of the family. He will say what will be done and what will not be done.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->32.     <!--[endif]-->James Nnachor is not in the Faith of the Son of Man. I thank God that Sister Nnachor is in the fellowship. I was moving round, his younger ones were feeling uncomfortable, only the female ones and Brother Solomon felt relaxed with their mother. But those that felt that they were deprived of the ceremony were demonstrating. It is not yet late. If we dismiss service even by ten o’clock in the night, you can go. It is your right.  
<!--[if !supportLists]-->33.     <!--[endif]-->You see, Chinwendu this is the best thing that has happened to you, because the more I am talking the more my anger is narrowing down. But still this report must be filed for posterity purposes.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->34.     <!--[endif]-->Igwe Amobi, make a photocopy of this report. Handover the photocopy report to Sister Chinwendu, then file the original in that Eha-Amufu file. Every Local Assembly has two files in this Faith: incoming and outgoing file. You may not know what is in your file until the day I will wreck up your file against you.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->35.     <!--[endif]-->Chinwendu, I want to cure your madness once and for all. I am thinking of putting you out of this fellowship. I am not saying out of Christ because you have not even come into Christ. If I allow you to be in the fellowship, if you die we are now going to tax ourselves to bury you, but if I put you out of the fellowship if you die it does not concern us. Chinwendu, choose between these two options: excommunicating you from the body of Christ indefinitely and imposing a fine on you. Pick one.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->36.     <!--[endif]-->Brother Chinwendu: impose a fine on me.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->37.     <!--[endif]-->I should impose a fine on you? Thank you. You have said very well. Bishop Ifeanyi Eze rise up! Listen to me I am not playing. Chinwendu, I do not care where you will get it. I am not interested.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->38.     <!--[endif]-->Sister Chinwendu, if you contribute anything on this fine, I will know and I will punish you more than him. I am not punishing your husband because he accused God or the brethren, no; I am punishing him to put an end to that madness.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->39.     <!--[endif]-->To that end therefore, you must pay into the hand of Bishop Ifeanyi Eze in not less than five installments from August 2012 till the end of the year 2012, the amount of two hundred and fifty thousand naira. Bishop Ifeanyi, you will use that money and give to Sister Chinwendu.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->40.     <!--[endif]-->Sister Chinwendu, that money is a spiritual money. It does not worth the accusation. It is the only way I know that I can console you for I know the tremor you have passed through within that period.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->41.     <!--[endif]-->Secondly, for dragging my feet and accusing God also, you are going to pay through your Bishop, a subsequent one hundred thousand Naira. Bishop Ifeanyi Eze, collect the missionary account from Apostle Kelechi and pay in that money to it, for it is the only account that we have in the bank that unites the entire Bride. I am not a signatory there. No. This is my verdict. This must finish before the end of the year 2012.   
<!--[if !supportLists]-->42.     <!--[endif]-->It takes God to defend the oppressed and the unjustly treated. He defends the case of the oppressed, the case of the orphans and the case of the widows. For without God coming to the defence of helpless people like our sister there, definitely many will die of frustration. It is a light matter because you are not the one involved.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->43.     <!--[endif]-->Married Sisters in this Faith, place yourselves in the position of Aister Chinwendu. If there is a sister that has the Holy Ghost, she is the one; because it is not easy for a woman that is humiliated to this point to remain under the roof with that same man, continue cooking and serving that man, it is not easy!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->44.     <!--[endif]-->To the rest, learn your lesson. The scripture made it clear in the book of Proverbs that when a man begins to make his case before his opponent it appears he is going to win but not until he is being cross-examined. As a result, be very careful before you talk. Before you begin to make your case against your opponent, make adequate investigations.  Otherwise when God will begin to speak, you might be proved a lair. Has it not come to pass? Eyes have seen it.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->45.     <!--[endif]-->I know that, that day this matter opened up, many will be feeling that day with the notion that what the husband said were right. Hence I could hear that day some people saying, “Can you imagine how the Holy Ghost happened to impregnate the woman! Not ordinary Holy Ghost, but in form of an old woman.”
<!--[if !supportLists]-->46.     <!--[endif]-->She never said that an old woman impregnated her. The thing she said even Brother Philip recorded it that day. She was making reference to the state of her body physically, how her body resembled that of an old woman of about one hundred and fifty years of age. It is in the tape and also in the book.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->47.     <!--[endif]-->However, some went away saying that sister said that an old woman impregnated her at Nsukka. Was it what she said? I heard it with my ears. And it will be arrant stupidity on my side to talk about that matter when I have already referred it to the appropriate quarters.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->48.     <!--[endif]-->Well, the wound is there and it will heal with time, Sister. Whatever might be the scare, with time it will peel off. That is all I want to say. If you want to practice your madness, select the area where the madness can be practiced.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->49.     <!--[endif]-->I decided to make it public for that is the only way our sister can be completely exonerated. She was accused publicly and Chinwendu wanted to come to Me privately to make it right and I said no. That is why he wrote the letter. He called Me on phone that he was coming down, called Apostle Kelechi pleading that he should curry my favour on his behalf. How can you accuse your wife publicly and then come privately to make it right with Me? It is impossible.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->50.     <!--[endif]--> By this I have put a final full-stop to that matter, let me not hear it anywhere again. Frustration can generate many things but not that type of accusation.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->51.     <!--[endif]-->I had a lot I would have shared with all of you but it is already late. Pastor Dan I have done as I promised. I have decided two cases today. To Obiakpu Egbema no victor, no vanquish. But that does not mean that there was no problem there.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->52.     <!--[endif]-->Pastor Promise, you are experienced. If you are asked to chose an icon, somebody you can pattern after both in behavior and in every other aspect of life, can you make a mad man in the market your role model?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->53.     <!--[endif]-->This is an adage a wise person should understand. Egbema have a life style or a syndrome. We have it as Egbema syndrome like we have Mbaise syndrome. The poorest man in Mbaise will always boast of having twelve or fifteen children even when he has nothing that can guarantee their lives.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->54.     <!--[endif]-->Egbema syndrome, there you will see kids, young boys and infants that have refused to go to school, that have taken delight in terrorism, in cultism, acts of intimidation. Let me say that ninety-nine percent of Egbema youths engage in violent occupation of which Apostle Ugo is their leader.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->55.     <!--[endif]-->Apostle Ugo, money is the root of all evils if you do not know the value and worth of money. It is the way you presented yourself to your people that made you to be appointed either as the chairman or the secretary of your community. Vested with the authority to be collecting money from the oil companies in your firm. You now become a representative of the heathens in revenue collection. Not genuine revenue but illegal revenue.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->56.     <!--[endif]-->They give you the money so that they have peace and do their businesses. And you a man of God entangled yourself with such a mess. No matter how transparent you might be in discussing the money that you collected you are guilty.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->57.     <!--[endif]-->Why not ask yourself if this oil is discovered in my home town or village Mbaise, whether the Son of Man will be tempted to accept such an offer from His community to be the leader of the heathens. And because you are there as an Apostle, your brethren saw nothing wrong in joining you.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->58.     <!--[endif]-->As a result, in revenue drive you now use them as your task force members. In other words, you are the revenue leader? Shame on you! Pastor Promise, starting from End-Time I do not blame you because End-Time is a violent religion filled with madness. It will take mad people to fight in the Church, carry benches and scatter everything break the pulpit and wound themselves.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->59.     <!--[endif]-->It will take mad people to fight during wedding ceremony until one used his legs to hit the cake down, the other one pushed the table and everything down, that is end-time message. Violent people! Note it, no violent man will be in Paradise.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->60.     <!--[endif]-->If you must be violent, be violent after a godly sort. How can you be after a Godly sort? Practice the type of violence the master Jesus Christ practiced. When he saw the house of God being desecrated, he could not live to see heathens messing up the house of prayer, turning it into a commercial place, He said no.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->61.     <!--[endif]-->In the bid to sanitize the whole thing He became violent and that is the interpretation of the clause “The Heaven suffereth violence” and the violent will snatch it by force. It is unfortunate to hear or notice that at your age, your experiences notwithstanding, you can still stretch out your hand against your own wife, that you can still be violent to the point of beating your own wife, throwing her property outside. It takes a mad man to do that.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->62.     <!--[endif]-->What is more, you had the gut of calling me pleading with me that I should step into the life of the child born to Brother Henry for the sake of the heathens. When you were trying to extinguish your family did you not see the heathens around?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->63.     <!--[endif]-->When you were beating your wife even to nakedness were heathens not there? When you were carrying her things outside did you not see heathens? Did you consider what people will say? And at the following day you carried your machine to fellowship singing your song, man of God, Pastor indeed. Tell me who will believe your report in that area. You have not even known the consequences.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->64.     <!--[endif]-->Cursed be the man who will because of his tenacious ways people will talk evil of the way of truth. Anybody could do that but why must it be the Pastor? Let me tell you; you are a disgrace to the Bridal Faith. You do not know how long that you have stayed in Egbema? You are a native of Obioma, a foreigner there acting as if you have no hope.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->65.     <!--[endif]-->I have been to your father’s compound. I was there when you buried your mother. That of Apostle Ugo who is the ring leader of the movement over there; let me tell you something it is easier to form a habit than to drop it. To disarm a group of people especially youths that have inculcated the habit of a little violence has remained a difficult task.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->66.     <!--[endif]-->This is why kidnapping can never stop because it is a violent occupation that produces huge money within the shortest period. A seed of God does not employ himself in a violent occupation. Thus, do not condemn an armed robber for you are one of them. There are too many forms of violent occupations but the most violent remains armed robbery and kidnapping.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->67.     <!--[endif]-->What can you say about terrorism? What can you say about intimidation, harassment, these are the characteristic features of violent occupations, for there is no way you can get money from people without harassing, intimidating and embarrassing them.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->68.     <!--[endif]-->Well, I thank God. You see why all of you are guilty? Both he that collects the money, he that takes a share in the money, and he that encourages one to go into that occupation instead of going through the true one, you are all guilty and utterly condemned!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->69.     <!--[endif]-->Go to Egbema and you will see thousands of jobless youths. As jobless as they are they are also polygamists: Somebody without a visible and viable means of livelihood marrying up to two, three or four wives. If not for my intervention, Brother Stephen would have been living with up to five wives now, and Brother Promise borrowed the cue from them. He married one when he has no money.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->70.     <!--[endif]-->Those that married they married nominally, even when their traditional marriage rite has not been fulfilled, so they married on credit. That is the tradition of their people for they believe in giving their daughters out to marriage on credit. The credit could be owed as long as the man is alive until their first son or daughter will come out to come and join to pay for the Bride price of their mother.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->71.     <!--[endif]-->Let me tell you something; when I carried this gospel to the Northern State, the first step I took was to disabuse their minds of that primitive adage they have that an average Hausa man should look like a madman, should be dirty in appearance.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->72.     <!--[endif]-->I made them to understand that there was no day God prepared a dress and say this rag is for Hausa people and this suit is for the Igbos. No, once you are in Christ you are a brand new individual within and without. A sure sign that you are with Me is that you will now drop your Hausa culture and tradition, then imbibe Christ’s culture, custom and tradition. Examine me from head to toe. You must look like me. It must affect your food also.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->73.     <!--[endif]-->There should not be Hausa food unless you want to make a special one for yourself which will be occasional but what if in that occasionally I will breeze in? That is why we feel free when we get to the north and we eat and drink with them and if they come here they will feel free with us because we are one family.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->74.     <!--[endif]-->I cannot go to the kitchen to prepare a special food because Brother Miracle is coming from Nasarawa, no, whatever I am eating is what he will eat and he will like it. They cannot prepare a special food for me when I get there. No special dress for we look alike because we are one. Egbema I am talking to you.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->75.     <!--[endif]-->If you have been preaching against violent occupation by now your people and my people there would have developed strong apathy for that style of living. Enmity would have been created in their hearts against acts of terrorism.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->76.     <!--[endif]-->Remember that our message said that all acts of terrorism are condemnable in all ramifications. It is because it is generating money and you are the leader. Apostle indeed! You co-opted Brother Victor and Brother Victor co-opted everybody. It has become a cult. Tomorrow you will come and tell me that cultists are pursuing you about. Why wouldn’t they pursue you?
<!--[if !supportLists]-->77.     <!--[endif]-->When you are competing with them over such militant jobs, are you not militants? Sit down unworthy representative. I know that all of you from Egbema are confused for what you bear in mind is not what you are seeing today.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->78.     <!--[endif]-->You were coming to receive a verdict that will make some to jubilate and some to cover their faces in shame, more so when Apostle Ugo in his attempt to explicate himself submitted a homily to me last Sunday. Not only a homily but a trigger.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->79.     <!--[endif]-->How I wish you will spend time to write your project to such a volume, your supervisor will have a nice work trying to go through your compendium for so many things were inserted there. You see, you can fool yourself not the Son of Man.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->80.     <!--[endif]-->Once I show interest in a matter, it is written on my face. The verdict today has turned all of you upside down. I know Elder Oduah is having his ears hooked up in the air.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->81.     <!--[endif]-->For many have already assured him that they will call him from the fellowship today. For they have assured themselves, “Whatever might be the matter, it will be communicated to you from outside. If they win us, we will wreck up more things.” Elder Oduah will say that he is writing more which he will take by his hand to the Son of Man Himself, for He listens to him.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->82.     <!--[endif]-->Apostle Ugo will say, “Of course you know me, the Son of Man said you might not be there when your case will be discussed. Do not be surprised, He will put me in the pulpit today to encourage the brethren. We will know who is who today!” And really you have seen who is who. All of you have been weighed in the balance and you are weighing nothing.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->83.     <!--[endif]-->Let me tell you: whoever that will boast, let him not boast of his wealth, of his strength, of his knowledge; of his physical relationship with the Son of Man. Let your boast be that you know God, you know His righteousness and you know His judgment.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->84.     <!--[endif]-->Stop seeing Him as God of mercy and stop there. See Him also as God of judgment. God judges with equity who does not look at anybody’s face.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->85.     <!--[endif]-->Publish this good news when you get home that the statement I made many, many years ago is still fresh even till this day. Very effective!
<!--[if !supportLists]-->86.     <!--[endif]--> I say it everywhere: “I am too big a cow to be cowed down.” I have seen 99, 100 means nothing. If I tell you the truth and you run mad, no problem.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->87.     <!--[endif]-->If the opening of your leg is the tunnel that I pass through every day, close it, and I will tell you that the closure of one road automatically marks the opening of another road. Block the course of a river, you create many tributaries; many channels will appear, the water will enter where it was not supposed to enter. For the water must find its own way. Today is another great day.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->88.    <!--[endif]-->On this note, I say remain in your sanctified estate, remain blessed in Him eternally.
