 (ARE YOU A CHURCHGOER OR A WORSHIPER OF GOD) Pg 3.
All I need in my life is Christ. Christ is sufficient to me. How many will like to hear from me? I am Bodily present and also spiritually present. Whatever Heaven is made up of is here. The Power upholding the Universe is here. Whatever you think God is made up of, is here.
The Deity is here, yet many do not know. If you like, believe, if you don’t like, throw it away. But I am sure and certain that He that created the Heavens and the Earth is here though you may not know Him. He is here, physically and spiritually. The Totality of what God is all about is here.

OF RESURRECTION
(PART ONE, VOL. 1)

AT THE CHURCH AT ONITSHA
SUN 5/12/1993

WE HAVE A TRUE ONE (AN APOSTLE)
We thank the Lord. We have a mother. Roman Catholic is the mother of all harlots, but the true Church of Christ is the mother of every Saint. Through her the saints are born. 
2.           Through the true Church, the true saints are born and she takes good care of her children. This Church that God has called us into, is the Church of Christ, the invisible army, and the Church that the enemy has been fighting against all these years. She has remained a faithful mother.
3.           Her children have never been starved for her husband takes good care of us. The Father produces food for the mother who will now feed us well. So when we gather as a Church, Christ feeds us with food that is well cooked, then we eat just like the one we ate physically in the morning. It is a well-cooked food. I enjoyed the food you ate with me.
4.           In the family when the mother cooks a nice food for her good children some will be licking plate, everybody will be happily even at the time the aroma will be coming out from the soup. You will see all of us singing song, no quarrelling again.
5.           That is the way we always have it any day we come to express our faith and come down in the presence of God. The Church of God is the mother of all saints. That is why we pity those that are not in the true Church.
6.           If you are not in the true Church you are under the care of the harlot, she does not know how to take care of you, she cannot give you good food she can leave you and go away.
7.           But the Lord always visits us we are in that number it is a special grace that God called us into the true Church in this age that has link with the ancient age.
8.           And Christ came down in our own age. You should count yourself most blessed. All the falsehood in the world you are not part of them. Even when you were in the end time message, when they were erring you became part of them.
9.           But in the Bride ministry, you are called out of them that you will not be a Law keeper, that you are called into the nation of the Lord it is by His special grace. Now among all people you got a group of people men and women that really come to worship God, that know no other thing than the Word and God gave then ministries.
10.        The Bible said we are build upon the foundations of the apostles and prophets, not the foundation of the evangelists. God knows that they were there but He called the apostles and the prophets.
11.        I want you to get something there. God is a Master Builder: He doesn’t build in confusion.  He knows that the moment these apostles and prophets receive the truth from Him, then it will go down through the lines to both pastors and evangelists and there is an extent they will reach, they will hold the truth because why God ordained that He will build our house through these foundations, you don’t ask God why.
12.        But you know in this calling there is no age God said He will build His Church upon, in our midst we have One of them. I will not be surprised if by tomorrow we have more prophets or more apostles, it is a privilege we have A True One.
13.         It is one thing to have ministry, it is another thing to have true ones, why it is in your own midst, you have your ministries you can stay to the truth of God, God made the true ones. Even some of them, they are sure that in their ministries God didn’t call them, both their pastors, teachers, they don’t believe them but for us we are ordained for Eternal Life.
14.        Let me tell you, God that started this work will finish it. He won’t stop it half way. Why is it that in the midst of all things God always allow the truth to come our own way. That is why we don’t have frustration, when we were singing songs the Lord was using the Apostle to lead us in songs and was reminding us of old, old songs.
15.        Something spoke to me saying that ministers were living under shadow but believe in speaking the truth and I speak the truth. As your pastor by God’s grace, I believe that anything I don’t tell you, God didn’t reveal it to me. 
16.        To the best of my knowledge what He tells me, I will let you know only the truth. So, when those songs were going on, the Holy Spirit took the Apostle through the memory lane bringing old, old songs.
17.        Something spoke back to me saying, “Now watch, I called my Servant with a special calling that when you people will start, the ministry, you start in the truth, preaching the truth, your ministers will be preaching the truth singing old, old songs.”
18.        God grounded the Apostle very well, and was putting those truths into Him and when the time came that ministers wanted to leave the truth and dilute the Gospel, God raised the ministry and called the Church back to line by saying, “Yes, yes somebody did not understands what I want.”
19.        God said it and I believe it is God. He sat him down to take in all the truths of God even the little, little ones that were coming out of the ministers then. Knowing that time will come when the ministers will become unbelievers of the truth, and almost start to mess up, He will raise the ministry to check them because He knows that from their calling, they love the truth but will not endure till the end.
20.        If God didn’t check them, I said, “Now, I understand, no wonder this ministry rose up purposely to put the Church in order.”
21.        It connected a lot of things. I said by the special grace this was the way He was using the songs to pump in the Word when we were singing those old, old songs by all those old, old ways which we had forgotten. God brought all of them back at the appointed time. And now God has accomplished what He wants.
22.        By so doing the Church must go on. Let me tell you, every ministry called of God is put in order from time to time. Now that the ministry is coming down, by now this ministry must have put them in order.
23.        Some people didn’t understand what He said but it is meant for some people, those it is made for will catch it. I said that for the last time that through the songs we are singing, a ministration went into my heart saying that as the memory of my servants remembers these old songs, that we have forgotten exactly the way they were sung those days.
24.        The same ministry came forth that way, ministers were jumping up and down with the little truth they have without having a backbone. God allowed the ministry of our brother to set a pace but the time those truths were coming out, God nearly cut down this ministry for the Church to be in order and at this stage, if you are called to be a pastor, it is either your ministry will be clear or your ministry will cease.
25.        If you are called to evangelize it is either your ministry will be clear or your ministry will cease, that is if you are called to be a believer: it is either your ministry will be clear or it will cease because God started from the least.
26.         If you read Ephesians 4, the Bible said He gave some apostles and some prophets, preachers, evangelists, teachers and pastors. When end time message came forth, after God had used William Branham, the ministry went into the hands of the pastors, started from the ground to top, a little while, there came forth teachers, a little while there came forth evangelists, a little while there came forth prophets and prophetess. Then at last there came forth the ministry of apostles. God was in them all.
27.        But when the Apostolic Ministry came forth they take us fully back to the beginning and then we go home.  Am speaking in revelation. I want to show you that the hour is finished. How many pastors do we have when William Branham was here? I can’t remember anyone. It is just ordinary missionary going around, nobody could hardly go preaching, but after when he had gone, pastors received the word.
28.        Everybody in Nigeria became pastors, everybody could lay down doctrines but God raised pastors, and began to gather people for the truth that has been handed down.
29.        That was why when he began even in the midst of something, something was still holding them. No excommunication, they were not holding anything against them, they were just holding them, and God was in it.
30.        It was His plan; He was coming for something, hence so many of them know little or nothing of the message. Then teachers began to come to teach them what the message was all about and yet sin was still in the camp. A little while evangelists began to come to cry sincerely against it, not evangelist with big stomach, not evangelist that were having their eyes on the things of the world, that are hungry of money but the ones that were completely called of God, that will wake up and call grace, grace.
31.        God is going somewhere and we are part of it. When we are called pastors, when teachers began to come, we are partakers. Some people dropped when it was pastors in the land, then a little while God began to bring forth, foretelling prophecies which are being expected, prophecies began to come even through prophets, even through other ministers.
32.        It was prophetic time, foretelling things to come. A little while the climax came, the Apostolic Ministry came. I am talking about real ministers. I am saying that each time, even if it is one genuine minister around the world, God is doing something. 
33.         Then now that we can prove that around the whole world that the preachers in the world are confused, the Church is ready to go, that is why when the Apostolic Ministry came it was no longer about the pastors holding you together. He has to hold the seal but some people have to be removed out of the Church, all these ones are not among the prophecies, not this one.
34.        He has removed a lot of things and then doctrines were being circulated in the Church. But some brethren were not telling you the truth. We are saying the truth about the hour, yet you and I are partakers. Now you and I see that we are not supposed to play with the ministry.
35.        We have witnessed a lot of things just like our brother testified this that he is about the oldest brother in this Church. It is a special grace, where there are many people.
36.        I thought when we come in here that we will not be running like rat in the Church premises because of the size of the place but I saw on two occasions we assembled here that the wall is pushing backwards. 
37.        If this place is filled, I won’t be surprised because you have been told. Let me tell you, you are filled with blessings. I am telling you the truth. It will not be filled with fake people.
38.        Do you know that there are over three thousand believers before the great scattering, even the Bible said it. If when three thousand were baptized I believe the hall was not filled like this till they began scattering themselves till Stephen was killed, then the area that one hundred and twenty people covered in two days, three thousand people covered it under two hours.
39.        If God scatter three thousand people in the world, it will be easier to carry this message than to scatter five people. I am getting to somewhere.
40.         All of us being in this place will not be a surprise if this hall is filled of people that truly believe. If the scattering is today, the whole of the city will hear over night, because we will be told the reason why we are scattered. God is good that is the work of God He works today, tomorrow and he will finish it.
41.        There is a place where we will go. I thank the Lord we have a police station there, they will go there. We thank God. For some will go there, it is not everybody. I heard the testimony our brother shared here, he was standing still, he has not come here before then and when he saw it, it was exactly this position where we were being scattered.
42.        He was the one that started running towards the local government. They took a knife, some went to the police thinking that the police would guard them.
43.        Let me tell you in the midst of flogging, to be a believer is not easy. When they were flogging Peter, he tried to change his heart but Peter said no, because he was glad to be a saint.
44.        Oh brethren, there is a glorious hope. When they were flogging, the Bible said that they were rejoicing for they were partakers. Even though they were battered ,the prophet understood that we are partakers; shouldn’t we be rejoicing?
45.         We have been driven away from Nkpor, then driven away from every place and we are hiding and we will still find another place. If we go there we will be driven away. I know that one day we will have that. We should be rejoicing because our Lord is coming nearer. I love this teaching this morning. 
46.        This is an individual faith, that is why I have been telling you about my personal experience. I said am going to preach it. I said it over and over. When our brother will be listing on the record, he was happy because of something he heard and he started to rejoice. Why? Because you must have personal revelation so that when you will be running you will run with Christ.
47.        I say the sermon this morning will be brief. It is a little exhortation. There are mixed-multitudes that are travelling with us. Where we are heading now is not Jericho, but when the spirit spoke to me it will become a different thing altogether. When we are reading it, mixed-multitude listing from Jericho, but we didn’t have the quickening power to read from it verse to verse until the Lord reveals it.
48.        What I want to speak on now is a popular topic. I have said it over and over. We have seen the event that transpired this period. I feel like nailing it down a little bit just to draw our attention. God bless you Church. Amen.

TWO TYPES OF RESURRECTION
Daniel chapter 12. Let us talk to God before we read. Daniel 12:1 & 2. “And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2.           And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.” KJV.
3.           There are two types of resurrection: Some to everlasting life, some to everlasting disgrace, the choice is ours. While we still have our breath of life, while we still go straight to God in prayers.
4.           I want to tell us the two sides of resurrection. Since the history of this Church I know many of us have heard about resurrection and life but I cannot remember somebody revealing it by the means of teaching.
5.           By God’s grace we know a lot of things about resurrection. If it pleases God that we will be partakers of this message, I want to pick up something out from these verses and show you a little picture of what awaits saints and what awaits sinners.
6.           Two sides of resurrection; we believe it and it is one of the doctrines of the Bible. The Apostles believed it is truth, the Prophets believed it, Christ Jesus also believed it. Even all of us also believe it, because it is scriptural.
7.           But I know the doctrine of resurrection not now, rather I picked it up to let us go a higher calling that Christ has called us because one of the problems people always have is that when you are doing what you are doing, and you don’t know what awaits you, you will be doing it carelessly.
8.           Assume somebody is labouring in another person’s farmyard and he is double minded, “I don’t know this man, I don’t know how much he is going to pay. I don’t know whether he will pay me or not;” that man may not do that work very well.
9.           But if he has a revelation of what is in store for him and he is satisfied with it, the man will do the work seriously because he knows that he has a possession and inheritance as a consolation awaiting him at the end of the work. There was a time I preached a message called “Reward”.
10.        I told us that people followed Christianity as if somebody is going to reward or pay them. If you as an individual realize that your calling in Christ is you and Christ alone, then you will remain steadfast so that whatever Christ told you, you absorb and Christ must speak through a man and you hold it fast because you know that you have a reward awaiting you.
11.        There was a day I remember our brother again when he was leading in a song that morning and he was seriously singing to the Lord; and I was there singing too, I watched him and also looked around the Church, some people were not in the spirit; he was singing high and loud, then something said to my heart that some people come to the Church like job men.
12.        They will help you carry your box to your house and go home and you will enjoy your property alone. some people just come to sing songs, not people that have a property. Somebody is sending them saying, “Help me, help me.” As soon as they reached the house, they drop it and go. 
13.        When you reach the house of God, see it as your property, see Him as your Inheritance. Like our brother was singing this morning seeing God as his property with all his heart and sang those songs. I was just standing there, for we are just partakers of His grace and some were just following, only helping others to carry their property. You get what I mean.
14.        The reward is for you if you really desire a work, you work according to the principle of the work, don’t just be an assistance. You are called to inherit it. Thus, resurrection means nothing but to bring back that same thing that died, not another. If another comes forth it is not resurrection.
15.        If it is something like that then it is not resurrection. It is that same thing that went down to the soil that will come forth. That is why I believed what Bible told us when it told us that Christ resurrected, the same that went down in the grave was the same that was resurrected.
16.        That was why He said, “Look at my hands, look at my side, look at my legs, it is where they nailed me on the Cross.” While it is the same body that resurrected.
17.        If you leave this life now and you are a believer, you are going to come up with the same body, not another for there is a quickening power in you. You are not going to come out as fish, you are not going to come out as an animal, you are going to come out with a human body.
18.        Thus, it is to bring back that same thing that died. Resurrection is the doctrine of the Bible. It is foretold throughout the Bible by the prophets of old. Why they did not fear was because they were rest assured that even if they die and even people cut off their necks that they will come up again.
19.        You can see the picture why you are not serious with God.  God told us about spiritual deformities. You need to conquer the spirit of fear. We read a portion of the scripture, it said that we should not fear anyone who will only destroy your flesh but you should fear one who will destroy your soul, because man as a person is fearful.
20.        Those called of Christ are selected of God for God has a nature and order of doing things. The order of God to make things to come back to life is that you must die and come back. Everybody must taste death before the resurrection.
21.        Even the living saints, when you hear that they will be changed within a second; they will die and resurrect, within a twinkling of an eye the dead will resurrect. The prophets foretold of it, it was their hope, their eyes never left that.
22.        In the world today there is something that people fear and that thing is death, that is what is going on with every association, different clubs, the fear is because of what happens to them during death.
23.        You can see different people weeping when death comes but you can see a little child in Christ rejoicing when he is going home, why? He is fortified because children of God are not afraid of death.
24.        We have been told in this most holy Faith that death is death, no matter how it comes: whether by road accident, fire, sickness, or by water, death is death.
25.        But the problem is when you begin to reason in your mind how you are going to die, the devil will frighten you and you begin to lose hope like people in the world as if there is no consolation. Yes. It started with the prophet of old in Job: 19-23.
26.        Job: 19-23, “Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!”. KJV.
27.        Did this scripture fulfill? Yes sir. Even William Braham repeated the same thing and it is fulfilling today. When the Holy Ghost said “Write it in the book like this, this day and forever,” because Holy Ghost knows the importance of that word forever, because that word can never be rotten; that is the word of God.
28.        Oh that my words were now written! Oh that they were printed in a book!
29.        Verse 24-27, That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock forever! For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
30.        And though after my skin worms destroy this body , yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me..
31.        Thank God he called us His love, God’s is the Father of the saints. This man despite all he passed through He knew it. You are not exposed to any place, you are not into a clean place, no matter anything, the person will rot, no matter anything worm will be coming out from this person’s body, because already while you are here you are having it, you have it here, the day you die you have it.  
32.        Also when you are pursuing eternal life like me, the same way everybody die in the flesh. But this man has a consolation, he knows there was a consolation. He said “In this same body, I know I will rise up and see my Redeemer because He liveth forever more.”
33.        Not in another flesh but the same body: “Though sickness, though skin disease, worms or persecution, trial destroys that body, I know I shall see my God.”
34.        Job was assured he was convinced. People were talking to him, trying to put fear in him but not Job. He said, “Close your mouth, don’t preach”. No matter whatever they said, Job did not listen because he knew that the highest instrument the devil has is death and that death has nothing to do with his soul.
35.         If you are a Christian, it is also in the flesh. From the time God began to expose us to many things your faith will be stronger, warning the flesh that there was a promise awaiting the faithful. Amen.

TWO SIDES OF RESURRECTION
Psalms 17-14-15, “From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes. As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.”. KJV.
2.           To them that have no Christ, when they die they leave their babies, they leave their children, their work is forgotten, everything is pending. The Holy Ghost in David said, “As for me, it is not like that,” because when he goes down he will come forth in the same likeness which is the image of God which God made him.
3.           How can a prophet of that revelation be afraid, how can Apostle with that kind of revelation be afraid? How can any minister or child of God that has an assurance be afraid of death?
4.           At the end of the day I will show you the two sides of resurrection. That is what their boldness is. They know that devil has finished all he can do in their life, in as much as the devil couldn’t get the soul of a saint, then a saint is sure and convinced that he has no part in the enemy.
5.           That is why if your soul is not secured in Christ you are not sure and convinced that your soul is in Christ, that you have not been sealed with Holy Ghost, you have to run for your dear life, because the enemy still possess your soul.
6.           David, he will rise up in that likeness when he went down. Let us see another prophet, what he spoke on that.
7.           Isaiah 26:19, “Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.” KJV.
8.           The dead, all of them, the dead that belong to God. I am talking about the two sides of resurrection. I have not touched that. I will only touch that in closing but I am only explaining what resurrection is all about.
9.           If anybody tells you that it is only children of God that will resurrect, it is false doctrine. A child of God will resurrect and the unbeliever will resurrect, but it depends on where you are going.
10.        That is where God beat the world hands down. If it is when you die it is all over, then nothing will happen. Then you will go ahead and you will do anything you like, but for the fact that if you go ahead and commit all atrocities—whether you are a believer or not—one day God will knock on your door and call you up.
11.        That true fear in a child of God wakes you. While you are still living in this flesh, everything the Holy Ghost tells you to do, you keep it according to what He tells you because you know that the moment you leave this life and pack away from this house, you will not see another room to pack in and make it right.
12.        The Bible said that God said to Moses, “Be faithful in my house.” He was telling the people “This is my house.” Somebody is living in it, in this house, Okechukwu is living in it. If the landlord of this house now comes and asks you, “What have you done? I want to see my house,” if that house is not orderly, I am going to give an account. If it is in order the landlord we say, “I appreciate the way you are maintaining my house”.
13.        I want you to get something today so that you will be very careful, you don’t own yourself. This is somebody’s building, you are only told to live in it, that is why I love the landlord illustration.
14.        Everybody is supposed to understand that you are caretaker. When the owner comes to take it you don’t have to ask why. When the owner of the pot comes to take his pot you won’t say “Sir, no.” Even if you don’t have where to empty the soup in the pot into, you will pour it away provided he wants to take his pot.
15.        Two sides of resurrection. We are getting somewhere. That is why people are acting that way. I used to tell people, “When you are living with people, live right with that person because when you pack away and depart, you may not have the opportunity of coming to live with him again.”
16.        Maybe when he was begging you salt or pepper, you will shout, “This man, don’t disturb me.” A little while you pack away, you get many bags of salts and pepper as you used to get, and you will be wishing that this man will come and beg you, but it is too late.
17.        That is why while will are still together as brethren hearing the word of the Lord, that we take the word of God, the way He has revealed it and walk by it in holiness, in purity, in sincerity, in perfection knowing that if we leave the world, there will be no more opportunity.
18.        Watch Prophet Isaiah’s prophecy. He said that dead men still live together with their dead body, they shall all arise, awake and sing. You that have revival why, because thy dew is the dew of Christ and the earth shall cast out all that it is holding.
19.        I used to ask what gives animals boldness to stand and get shot to death. Animals stand hanging, they weren’t afraid. How can a believer be afraid to lay down his life at the Master’s feet because the Master was the first to lay down His life, He said, “Do as I did.”
20.        Paul said, “Follow me as I follow Christ.” Till his neck was cut off. There must be a boldness in you that will make you say that nothing in this life will separate you from the love of God.
21.        This resurrection is reality and when we resurrect, some are resurrecting to Eternal Life, some to everlasting disgrace (damnation). Think about this one: everlasting suffering, everlasting disgrace, where they will be disgraced forever.
22.        I better be disgraced here than to be disgraced there. That was why the Lord said when men accuse you, revile you or, disgrace you. Have you seen a man that heard that there is party, he went to that party and he was prepared, he didn’t go with invitation card, he went there before the party commenced; he has started dancing and because they have not started sharing the kola he was waving his hands and danced more than everybody.
23.        When they said, “Now we want to begin the occasion, we want to start, now let us call on some people to take some seats.” Then they began to call people, and when they got to that young man, they said, “Sir, who invited you? Get out of here!” That man will go away with his face down in shame, in disgrace because he was not prepared.
24.        Be very careful. When you are going for a man-O-war battle, you are going with all equipment, hold your dagger, both your belt and your cap because you know it is an exercise, everything you need there you won’t beg somebody to borrow you. You must get completely equipped, before you are taken to the bush or the forest.
25.        You are given chance to equip yourself, the moment you get to the bush if you forget your belt, it is you that the voices will be roaring on because you don’t have your belt; you were given enough time to get everything ready, at that time when you get into the forest you don’t have to be quarrelling and accusing anybody. That time is gone. Let us see what resurrection looks like.
26.        Ezekiel 37 vs 1-14, “The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
27.        And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
28.        Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
29.        And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
30.        So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
31.        And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
32.        Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
33.        So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
34.        Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
35.        Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
36.        And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it , and performed it , saith the LORD.” KJV.
37.        Spoken word until he fulfilled the ministry, because through the lips of a man somebody dead arose again. Through the lips, a lame person must walk, not through the lips of a tree but through a man who acted His word and those gifts came forth.
38.        The same way, if somebody is dead in Christ, he will come back to life. The prophets of old, they had their faith fixed there. That was why when they carried Jeremiah and put him inside the mud, the more the mud covers him, the king said “You will die, stop all these prophesies, stop this preaching,” Jeremiah didn’t change his mind.
39.        Why? He knew that there is a resurrection that he himself is going to the battle side. It is not resurrecting that matters but that he has hope that he was going to rise again.
40.        I want to show you something. When Jesus Christ came here, He proclaimed resurrection in Matthew chapter 22. At the end of this sermon you will get where I am going, not only to lay down the two sides of resurrection to you but for you to know that there is hope, for you to know which side we are or which side you have started to go because the journey of these two sides begins here.
41.        Let me tell you, in the Church you must know the side you are heading to. That is why The purpose of God raising His Apostle around us is to bring out an individual faith for the people, and everybody will be looking at that faith, and when somebody is lost, he can easily be seen, when you deviate from the faith that is handed down from Jerusalem, people will know.
42.        It was so easy to know when people from Rome began to take another faith. It was so easy they just changed it and began to introduce false doctrine which was not the original faith.  What is more, when a man leaves the faith of the saints he will back it up with his own sermon and introduce his own doctrine
43.        You are either in the preaching from Jerusalem or you are receiving the teaching from Rome. It has now began: the two sides of the world, both of them are of the seven hills: this one has seven hills, this one has seven hills too. This one is in religion, this one also is in religion. This one worship, this one also worship but yet not the same preaching. One has one God, one has plural gods. One has one voice, one has plural voices.
44.        In every generation, what will make you to know the Church of God is that He always raises a voice in His Church, God doesn’t raise many voices. God doesn’t raise voices, He raises one voice and that one voice is for the Church, that voice is the voice of his word. It is in this Church.
45.        If  I speak Isaiah: 9 vs 6, and that is my revelation, and Brother Kelechi speaks another thing, we have gotten two spirits, one must be right, one must be wrong. Thus in every age, the apostles, the prophets, all of them have but one revelation, they fight a common battle with a common faith.
46.        In this age it we are called back to the Word. Paul wasn’t there when the Jesus Christ conducted the Lord’s Supper because the Bible said that Paul wasn’t there, but by revelation he got it right and then he said, “I relate of the Lord,” and when Peter watched him conducting it he did it rightly.  He did it good because it was one voice.
47.        But if somebody has heard from another voice it will contradict the laid down doctrine there as drawn from the saints. Remember it is laid down by the apostles and the prophets; one truth as God gave us Pastors and Teachers and Evangelists to preach the Word.
48.        All things in the Old Testament were preached by the prophets, in the New Testament the apostles preached it. You cannot change it, you cannot say “I am a pastor let me add my own,” God won’t accept it because He has already ordained the way it will go. Jesus Christ prophesied it, he proclaimed that resurrection is a reality in Matthew: 22 vs 23-33.
49.        Matthew: 22 vs 23-33, “When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left him, and went their way. The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,
50.        Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother…” KJV.
51.        There was a portion I read yesterday from a book I saw in the house of one apostle. When I was reading that book I saw what America has succeeded in doing concerning World Council of Churches which is the image of the beast.
52.         I called my wife saying, “Come and see here! They said something about religion. They said every Church will not be exempted from that. They said that any Church that is preaching against women, that will put away women from the pulpit, that they will no longer preach, any Church that is preaching against homosexuals, that does not allow homosexuals to come and be their members, any Church that is taking rigid stand, they will take away their license and stop them moving as a Church.”
53.        Whatever Nigeria is doing today is what they learnt from America. Very soon it will become a law, they will pass it as a decree. I said why are these people mad! America is cursed. They stopped using the name Church and started calling them organization, and said that any of these organizations that is preaching anything about separation that the government will clamp down on them.
54.         While they deny the truth, people are out to fall away, but there are two sides of resurrection, whether they believe it or not, they must rise and go to the other side and the saint must hear God’s word. Make your own choice here. Brethren the thing is a reality.
55.        My brother was telling me the other day, saying there is a group in Onitsha going from Church to Church to take out their believers. I said ok, some of us remember that there was a young man that came to us that time at Ugwumba and the spirit of God attacked that young man.
56.         I said “Yes we know where you came from, take the whole record of what you want to record. With the life we find out who you are,” because we have this hope that we cannot mellow down, we are going to make it hard, we are hidden here, under the Father.
57.         When I was reading yesterday about the falsehood of the Roman Catholics I became shocked and was weeping. I started praying for the Church earnestly. I never prayed my personal prayer. I deeply prayed for the Church.
58.        I said, “God open their eyes to see what is ahead.” I never know they do not believe in democracy, freedom of speech, freedom of faith, they have a doctrine that is against it. They go further to say any scientific inventions must be brought to be approved by the Vatican Council—anything the scientist will manufacture, which means whatever they will manufacture is what will suit them.
59.        Not having freedom of press will stop you from printing tracks, not having freedom of speech will stop you from preaching in the radio and the whole thing is going back to the same old nature, but the saints have a consolation: even if this flesh is destroyed, there is a better place. Let us find out what the Lord was saying in Matthew chapter 22 vs 23. 
60.        Matthew 22 vs 23-33, “When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left him, and went their way. The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,
61.        Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
62.        Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:
63.        Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh. And last of all the woman died also.
64.        Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her. Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God.
65.        For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
66.        I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
67.        And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.” KJV.
68.        And I love it when we were climbing down this hill. It reminds me of godly way, we were just running that morning, a brother was calling me on the roadside, I said, “You are not serious. That it is not a time of looking back. If you are serious, run and follow me.”
69.        He ran and joined me, he didn’t look back. I saw him and said, “This is how it is, how you will suffer at the road that leads to eternal life or you perish.”
70.        All roads don’t lead to the house of God. It’s an individual race over there. There is no husband and wife for God predicted it that resurrection is real, they will rise as angels, like human beings but as angels they will not marry again. They will not have any other thing.
71.        However, we know that in mass resurrection those who didn’t die in Christ would rise up, they have their own side.
72.        Mark : 12 vs. 22 to 27. “And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also. In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
73.        And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the Scriptures, neither the power of God? For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
74.        And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.” KJV.
75.        In the same state, so we find what life means there is that when you resurrect, you recognize the person that resurrect with you, you will know your wife, you will know your husband, you will know your mother, you will know your children, you will know your father, but there is no more papa for there is one Father, we all are brothers.
76.        If the Lord takes me home now and take my daughter home, two of us at the same time, we will be the same age grade, brethren of life precious age grade. What can we do for age grade, when already we have our own age grade, you will be surprised but it is true.
77.        When God gave the vision to our Brother Branham in his day, he told them between 18 years and 26 years youths, tender ages, not aged person,  when they resurrected into Christ. The Lord proclaimed it.
78.        Luke 20 vs 27-34, “Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection: and they asked him, Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
79.        There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children. And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.
80.        And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and they left no children, and died. Last of all the woman died also. Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife.
81.        And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage.” KJV.
82.        We were shown this scripture in Abagana, and some people almost ran away. When we were asked if this scriptures mean this way, why do we still go ahead, that the children of the kingdom, they are much concerned to the things of the Lord than any other things.
83.        It is only to this world that we talk about marriage, that we talk about food. In the life to come this is an everlasting manna, the manna will last forever. There is no thirst, there is no hunger, there is no sickness, so how can there be death?
84.        All about marriage are all carnal things, they end here, they don’t cross the other side. God of the living, He is not interested for the people that are dead, for them to remain in the grave, rather He wants them to live and worship Him. Because if you die now, your mouth is closed, you cannot worship God anymore.
85.        But He wants you to be alive and worship Him, but one can still be here and still be dead. The moment the spirit of God is no more in you as a believer you can now be having the pleasure of the flesh and then you are dead, the Bible said that a woman that enjoys the pleasure of sin is a dead woman, is completely dead.
86.        Thus, somebody can be here and yet dead already, but he doesn’t know. But there is no way you can die without knowing. By the time you backslide you know, the time you are in the faith you equally know. Amen.

HOLY COMMUNION AND PROPHECY (ONITSHA SERIES)


1
OBEDIENCE IS BETTER
THAN SACRIFICE (1)

My boat is over filled. I have carried more than required yet I have not seen the life in any of you. When the life is not manifesting, you all sat down, you are only in this Faith so that your husbands will not marry another wives.
1.           Number one, your husband did not marry another wife because he doesn’t have the money. Number two, he doesn’t want. That a man did not marry 4, 5 wives, hundred; number one, he doesn’t have money.
2.           Number Two, he doesn’t want. Since Creation it is the man that will determine the number of wives he wants. If you are angry, burst. So it is with the issue of children. It is not a woman that determines the number of children she will have. A man accepts the number of children God has given him.
3.           If God gives him hundred, he will take. Let’s not consider hardship; it is already there from Creation. If a man still wants children and the woman says no, then she should pack and go. The truth must go forth from Jerusalem.
4.           We deliberately fall when laughing, not that laughter is capable of pulling us down. What is disturbing me in this matter is that those that are troubling me in this matter are those that their parents are polygamists: their fathers married 4, 5 hundred wives yet they didn’t kill their father or their mothers. However, when it gets to your husband’s turn you became troublesome.
5.           Hence your say, “For what, who are you?” A man should be a man; a woman should be a woman. Take your positions immediately. Don’t go further. The problem with you is that you do not know the Personality that is talking to you, you  do  not know the source of this Message, you just filled your homes with those supernatural pictures.
6.           Do you pileup supernatural pictures, who do you think it is there? And yet you will be giving testimony “Let the elders go early morning, there is a very serious case in this faith and it must take the Almighty God to decide it otherwise it is going to generate a big problem. Make sure you come early for I will be in the fellowship before everybody”.
7.           And they all arrived and met. He that is here, foolish ones was talking. “Didn’t He tell us to come early? Now it is already 10:30 am in the morning yet He is not here.” While they didn’t know He was already in the fellowship earlier than everybody.
8.            By now you all should be able to tell yourselves the truth even those you call unbelievers know God more than you because if they should hear the level of truth that you have heard, they will live the life more than all of you.
9.           You will sit in the fellowship with your ears very high and we will think you are understanding me yet you are just in the fellowship so that your husband will not send you packing.
10.        It is better you are sent packing, that you may gain the kingdom of God rather than be in the fellowship and go to hell.
11.        It is better to stay in the world and go to hell than to stay in the Bridal Faith hearing the word of God and still go to hell. God spoke on clear terms and told all of us that Wednesday is for the owners of the family while Sunday is for the world.
12.        Those Message you do not believe, let us know that you do not believe them and those you believe let us know you believe them. Go ahead can you challenge God?
13.        The moment you challenge God’s word it then means you don’t need it. “You have killed me, you have killed me!” Who is killing you? You are killing yourself, the snail that uses its water to stuff out the fire thinks that it is quenching it. A human being does not know when he is working against his or herself thinking he is working against God.
14.        God has said it that every utterances, every thought of the heart, every negative feelings that is contrary to the truth must be accounted for whether we like it or not.
15.        This Message is a Message of 1997 by Okechukwu Nwankpa from the onset said that he is the greatest enemy of the devil. He said, “How can he walk away from this Apostolic Faith.” He even tendered prayer request. He said, “If you love me pray for me.” He said that if he should at any point in time walk away, it is to his doom.
16.        Bishop Nnachor, are you hearing what I am saying? Up till now we are still settling dispute in your family at your age and yet you are answering Bishop, may be you do not know that you and your wife should be ashamed of yourselves.
17.        Maybe I should start shouting when I know you are in error, being a Bishop, will it save you? No! If being a Bishop will save you Judas wouldn’t have perished but he forfeited his bishopric office. Do you think that being a Bishop matters anything to God?
18.        It is better we tell ourselves the truth. This is the reason why we gather every Wednesday to hear the truth as a family, not in the general assembly  for the word went forth from Jerusalem. He said “I have placed my word above all flesh,” is it not in this place?
19.        “It is as an unfailing sign, this Sword of the Spirit shall not depart from among you for it is my presence among my people.” How can? Because of the mixed-multitude you will forget the voice you heard from the very beginning when Jesus told them that it is because of their hard-heartedness that Moses gave them those laws. Which means if they were obedient he wouldn’t have given them those laws.
20.        It is just like a woman that is obedient and then her husband will start giving her laws, has it ever been done? No! But when a woman is disobedient, stubborn, arrogant, then her husband will give her laws and whenever she disobeys those laws her conscience will condemn her because the law shows her that she has fallen.
21.        I never knew I will come to the pulpit. You have made me weak just like Saint Paul. Though I knew from the beginning when the voice said, “Son of Man, go ahead you will not faint, I am with you.”
22.        The same way it started is the same way it is going to end. In other words whatever I experienced in the beginning I will experience all at the end. If it means going without food I will go. If it means standing from morning till night I will stand for the Lord is my strength.
23.        Until the will of He that sent me is accomplished, to hell with every other thing! From 1997 to 2014 yet somebody had not repented, when will that person repent? That old bad character the person is having for fourteen to fifteen years and yet you are telling the person to repent, such a fellow is not a seed of God from the very beginning.
24.        That night Paul had a vision, he saw a man from Macedonia Greece pleading with him, “Come over here and help us.” So he decided to leave for Macedonia at once. He only concluded that God wants him to preach the Good news there. Paul and his company obeyed at once not minding what will meet them on the way.
25.        That was why he could announce to Churches that he was never disobedient to heavenly vision. Many of you in this faith, God will reveal to you by vision, tell you what to do but you will be disobedient. He will send His own Son to you but you will still remain disobedient. Can you be disobedient, and still meet his requirements? No. Obedience is better than sacrifice.
26.        Romans 16 vs 19,  FOR YOUR OBEDIENCE IS COME ABROAD UNTO ALL MEN. I AM GLAD THEREFORE ON YOUR BEHALF BUT YET I WILL HAVE YOU WISE UNTO THAT WHICH IS GOOD AND SIMPLE CONCERNING EVIL.
27.        Is there any testimony about you concerning the Word of God? Or is it any time your name is mentioned in any Message everybody will say “Have your obedience been testified in the Bride of Christ?”
28.        In short there are some Messages that after hearing them, they keep me awake over night. If I think years back how many we were in number, I will check our feet-washing, I will check our sweet communion but I remembered the voice that told us that time is coming when this hall shall be filled with human beings. The voice said that we should not rejoice that a lot of people have come, that our congregation is now large.
29.        Those that know this truth among the ancient people that are still remaining with us should stand up here. When one does evil he will use one that does not even know the basis of our faith as an excuse, one that does not know where we started from and where we are heading to. 
30.        Yet people can talk anyhow. Can you imagine one that called himself a deacon did evil and he was asked about it in the fellowship and he wanted to fight. He was told that he will be reported to the Son of man.
31.        He dipped his hand into his pocket, brought out his phone and was handing it over to the pastor to call the Son of man. He was telling the pastor that if he fails to call the Son of Man that let shame be his portion.  Amen.



2
BE LOYAL AND OBEDIENT
As I am talking on the side of the men so I am talking on the side of the women. Tell me the type of account the pastor will be giving concerning such a fellow for it is the pastor that will give account of such fellow.
2.           I have given you reasons why you should walk and be in the right relationship with your elders. Even in the office if you are not in the right relationship with your superiors you are doomed, your superior officer will wait for your report, that is the point he will wait for you, then come and have promotion because you are unworthy for the office or the position you are vying for.
3.           That is why you will not be promoted. Your fellow workers will be promoted while you are left behind. Look at Iyke Obasanya, the day I spoke to him before the elders, the wife was also present: “You were over ambitious,” I spoke to him at length.
4.           There is no way a level 16 position can be given to a level 13 officer when a level 16 personality is still there, it can never be done. Now how will you feel when you realize that a level 13 officer is fighting your coming in, you being a level 16 officer? How will you feel when you finally came in, will you spare him? No, you will destroy all his records showing him that you have been in the civil service before he came.
5.           The pen speaks more than the mouth. The level 16 officer will use pen against you because where your case will be discussed you will not be there. Whenever they lift your file he will say “Forget about this person, he is stubborn!”  That’s why what we are called is civil servants and you must be ready to say “I am sorry.”
6.           If Christ will humble Himself and chose to be a human being and was obedient, remained obedient even till death, humiliating Satan, who are you?
7.           It is time that we tell ourselves the truth because we are about to go. If you go to the book of Jude the Lord condemned those people that opened their mouth to speak against dignitaries, those angels are afraid even to speak against, you just open your mouth and talk.
8.           There is one in our midst whose word on every matter is final whether you like it or not, is that not the reason why we are the children of God? That is it.
9.           When you seems to be arguing he will keep calm and ignore you. Who is the most useless human being on earth? It is one that doesn’t have one he fears, reverence and obey. 
10.        If you don’t have one you fear, reverence and obey in this world you will be the most useless human being on earth. Even if it is a mad man, when a mad man raises a machete, there is one that will ask him to stop and he will listen. He will keep the machete by the side.
11.        Why are we hammering on this evil? It is very infectious,  the first person did his and he was free. The second person the same and so on, then he will be using evil character as example saying that all these people that did that, have they all been killed? “When it gets to me they will be talking.”
12.         Instead of having Christ as your example you will use unbelief as your example and being unhappy that when it gets to your turn that God didn’t keep quiet, may be you didn’t know that a child that does a bad thing and the parents keep quiet, such a child is gone.
13.        Check a child that when he commits crime the parents will just ignore him; Is it not after talking too much to a child you ignore him? It is just like Sister Uk Nwanga, it may be you don’t know that you will be a fool to continue asking Nwachukwu why he didn’t come to fellowship, you will ask Odinaka the matter your husband was handling till his death and you continued on it, and you are getting old, yet you are still on the same matter, when will you stop?
14.        What you will do is to keep calm. Whatever you see you take it like that. When we come to fellowship on Wednesday, is there anybody that doesn’t know his brother or sister or don’t we know ourselves? But when we come on Sundays we stay calm and pretend.
15.        We heard a Message on Sunday, getting home somebody started fomenting trouble and you want me to believe that such a fellow believed our message? One that uses cry to cover lies wants somebody to take side with her, you are demonstrating against the truth.
16.         The multitude gathered around Jesus but when they were told the truth they all left remaining only twelve. The question is, where did they go to? Then in your own day before it will be said you are already away, upon that you have used cries to back up lies looking for one to take side with you, rubbish.
17.        Let me see one that will come to my house and knock at my door.  In short from today unless you are invited to my house, don’t come, I am tired. If I didn’t call you, stay in your house. Pastors send this news to other local assemblies.
18.        If anybody wants to come to fellowship in Onitsha let such a fellow come. I am not against it. “When your loyalty and obedience is known to all they rejoice over thee…”
19.        Did it say that his disobedience was noised abroad? Innocent and the guiltless, is there no Message that you will hear and you raise your hands and say God thanks sir!
20.        Because you are innocent and guiltless. Or is there any Message that comes out you will be guilty, until when will you stop being guilty? What has been preached to all nations, is it disobedience?
21.        What is giving the Saint Paul joy, is it disobedience? It is just like in the family, tell me parents their children obey and they are angry? Tell me is there a wife that obeys her husband and the man becomes unhappy?  Does it happen? No.
22.        The reason that husband and wife do not have peace is because the woman wants her husband to obey her thereby turning things upside down. This cannot happen, it is not even written anywhere rather the Bible said “Women obey your husband in all things.”
23.        In the world women are dictators to men, that’s why we say that we are living in the woman’s world. In the world women dictate to men what they will do, but in the Bride it is not so. Why did many children became hooligans? It is because there is no good understanding between husbands and wives.
24.        Where there is no true love abiding between husbands and wives, criminals must emerge: when the man tells his children one thing their mother will tell them another thing.  
25.        Every Wednesday belongs to God but Sunday belongs to the world. Even the devil can come on Sunday. Even if your mother-in-law comes to your house, instead of staying at home, you bring her here like the ones I used to see.
26.        She comes in and sits down in our fellowship, before she will go she will learn “remain blessed”. She will tell us “remain blessed”; the son-in-law will bring her before the Son of Man and tells Him “She is my mother-in-law.” Before she even gets closer to the Son of Man she will start saying “remain blessed” because the son-in-law has already instructed her to bend her head down and say “remain blessed.”
27.        But on Wednesday if you know that devil that you are, come here, if you know that mermaid that you are, come here. Carry that your evil spirit to this place unless the Son of man is not here, it is a must that God will expose you. You will know whether you are with us or not. You will know whether you are spy or a judge to us.  Amen.

THE REWARD OF OBEDIENCE AND PUNISHMENT FOR DISOBEDIENCE
May God renew my strength! Did he say that their obedience was noised abroad? Saint Paul said your obedience has come abroad to all men.
2.           Can God say the same thing concerning this Church? That our obedience has come abroad to all men that we have obeyed all that He has asked us to do?
3.           Many a time we are tempted to ask the question: “What will be our reward if we obey? If we take our time to obey all the commandments of the Lord what will be our reward?” I want to show you some few things or the most important thing that will be our reward.
4.           James 1 vs 25. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. KJV.
5.           But he who looks carefully into the faultless law, the [law] of liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it, being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer [who obeys], he shall be blessed in his doing (his life of obedience). AMP.
6.           But if you keep looking steadily into God's perfect law--the law that sets you free--and if you do what it says and don't forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.” LB.
7.           What is the doctrine of liberty? It is this Message we are hearing now, which continued liberating us from the bondage of the law and the bondage of denomination and after hearing this Message and did not obey it, we will not be blessed. The Bible said “Blessed is the man who after hearing this Message, will take his time to obey it.”
8.           We are liberating you from the hands of stubborn women. If you know you were here by 1997 show by raising your hands see my hands I am among. Standup if you know you are in this faith by 1997 stand up.
9.           There is a song we used to sing which says “Son of man, if Jehovah shall rise to judge the world, Son of man I am standing at your back immovable!  And I know that I shall be among those that will not be convicted.”
10.        You have seen that those that are standing up are in the minority, then who is killing you? Are you a goat? If you are a man of God, your wife must be such that will always obey you quickly, and quietly without complaining, without murmuring.
11.        Look at how God put it, “If you will obey at once,” it is not when you start dragging with your husband arguing, trying to see who will have a wiser point, is that our Message from the beginning? No, glory be to God in the highest.
12.        No wonder He told us that “I have preserved my word that you will not perish.” Without this Message we will all perish. Look at God coming so low to liberate us.
13.        When God gave us this Message many of you were not even married, and when you got married you got married to stubborn women.
14.        Chapter 2, “The reward of obedience and punishment for disobedience.”
15.        When you obey all the commandments of God you can never be hurt by the second death which is hellfire. If you obey every commandments God had given to you, you are qualified to be in the first resurrection.
16.        1st John 3 vs 22.  “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.  KJV.
17.        You will be told to ask that you shall receive yet you will never do those things that are pleasing in his sight. LB.
18.         Then what are you asking for? Tomorrow you commit something bad next tomorrow the same thing, what are you asking for? Everywhere is calm now.
19.        Brother Onyema Isaac said that when the mouth is guilty the jaw becomes quiet. Is there any of us that this Message was framed because of him or her today? No.
20.        This Message is already there before you came, before you got married and filled the house with children. When you look at the Message you will see that you are fulfilling your portion and I am fulfilling mine own portion too.
21.        “Who is he that denied that Jesus is the Christ and Messiah, he is the anti-Christ, the antagonist of Christ who habitually denies and refuses to acknowledge the Father and the Son.vWhatever thing we ask of God we will receive it because we do those things that please God…”
22.        For that reason there is nothing that we shall ask and God will not grant it because our obedience has been fulfilled. But if we disobey whatever we ask of God we will never get it, even eternal life you will never get it, because you are a disobedient child.
23.        This gospel was preached in 1997, is there any law of Moses in this Message? No.
24.        Revelation 2 vs 10 through 11 “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days; be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
25.        11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.”. KJV.
26.        When you obey all the commandments of the Lord you will never be hurt by the second death which is hellfire. The scripture says, “Blessed are those that are partakers of the first resurrection for the second death has no power over them.”
27.        When you obey all the commandments God had given to you, the God you know is not an imaginary God, whose voice you hear every day, you have fellowship with Him every day. For God goes to Church.
28.        When you obey any commandment God had given to you, you are qualified to be in the first resurrection, you are qualified to be in the salvation of the saints. Nothing will hold you back on earth, you can never appear before God’s judgment.
29.        Because you are no more in the sleep bed you will be a spectator there. You will join hands with God to judge the world, for God is going to judge the world with His saints. For God is going to judge the world with His saints. Is this not scripture?  
30.        What awaits you if you are disobedient, a few things that you should expect, the most important thing and the horrible aspect of it is what I am going to show you.
31.        Ephesians 5 vs 6 through 7 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them.” KJV.
32.        Do not allow anybody to deceive you with vain things, telling you that you shouldn’t listen to these commandments, that you shouldn’t obey them that God is not interested in them.
33.        Let no man deceive you with vain things, telling you that you are not worshiping your wife that you are worshiping God.  That weather your wife is believing or not that it has nothing to do with your faith.
34.        Let no man deceive you with vain words telling you to go and check the society, check all the Churches and see whether any Church has done that before. The Bible said that because of this deceit, because of his vain words, God will bring His wrath upon the children of disobedience.
35.        If you disobey God’s holy commandments which you ought to keep for your own good; so that you can be saved from the wrath of God, He will give you a place among the unbelievers.
36.        How many will like the wrath of God to come upon them because of your willful disobedience? Show by raising your hands, not even one. God forbid, not my portion. But by and by the secret lies in obeying God’s commandments, but if you shake your head, nothing will stop the wrath of God from coming upon you.  Amen.

OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE (2)
2nd Thessalonians 1 vs 7 through 8,  And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.” KJV.
2.           When Christ shall be revealed from heaven with his wrath upon all men, that do not know God. Stubbornly disobeying his commandment, stubbornly disobeying his gospel where will you be? Will you escape? Or will you be a victim because you listened to vain things. Who shall be punished?
3.           Anybody that holds Bible and can read John 3vs 16, it becomes evangelism. This gospel, was it written today? Didn’t you see it when you were at the Pentecostals? Didn’t you hear about it?  
4.           “But you say for God so love the world,” you didn’t know about this one, what you know is “Go and tell them.” Today is another day. Last Wednesday I was not physically here but spiritually I was around you were rejoicing because you considered the Message titled Spiritual Realms.
5.           Carry spiritual realms to this Message, find out the spirit that is operating in you, that is hindering you from fulfilling this truth; for there is a spirit that is fighting you, or do you think that things happen for nothing?
6.           Everything that happens to you happens for a purpose. Anything that happens to you, if you are seed of God, it happens for a purpose.
7.           There is something God wants to work out.  You have heard the Gospel last Sunday; you have heard it on Wednesday last week and God brought something on your way, it came because of you, it came because of me. Raising your head up will not save you. What will save you is to take a decision today
8.           There is something the devil always use to deceive women. Every woman thinks that when she opens her red eye, the husband will become afraid of her, or when she tells the husband that she will pack and go, the husband will faint. That is where the devil is tying them with rope every day.  
9.           Before your husband married you he was feeding himself and had girlfriends, more than hundred. He then married you because he wants to live with one, have this at the center of your heart.
10.        The Lord said that the reason why this Message came is to deliver us from the hands of stubborn women. Won’t this word touch you? How many are we that time? Those that were stubborn here that time, is any of them that still around? No.
11.        But more stubborn people have entered this fellowship today, is this truth not fulfilling? They crept in unnoticed through marriage. God made us to understand that it was through marriage that Moabites, the Hittites came into the midst of the people of God.
12.        Moabites are in this camp, the Hittites are in this camp there is nothing we do not have in this camp any one you see when Message will be going on he or she will be struggling with his or her heart, what he or she will do and once such fellow gets home, he or she will be ready to fight.
13.        The person doesn’t have the strength to fight the Son of man in the pulpit, but such fellow is struggling within what he or she shall do and when she gets home her husband will become number one.
14.        She will say, “Yes, let everybody go to his house and preach his own Message: Oya now look at my belongings and pack them out of your house, if you do not do that let it be known to you that you do not have any strength!”
15.         And the man will be surprised and will  say, Is this not my wife whom I came to fellowship with today. What is stopping you from packing away my belongings  she is saying all this to show that whatever that has been said here is just annoying her.
16.        This faith will save some and at the same time kill some. I want you to read this Message till when your wife will come out and slaps you. We were talking last night and a brother said that if his wife attempts slapping him that he will kill her immediately; and I told him to shut up his mouth that I give him from now till 31st of this month.
17.        “If you do not carry plaster on your mouth and eye and the teeth of your wife also will be out, your wife will slap both your teeth and your eye into your mouth.” 
18.        And then he started pleading to me “please sir, please sir”. You see a woman, when the husband wants to slap her she will set her knee and the husband will break his hand and he will go and treat his bone and come back again. Then it will no longer be hand blow. It will be head butt. If he doesn’t know what to do he will push your head on the wall as Brother Mike used to say, Brother Mike is it not so? 
19.        That is why Brother Nath will not be excommunicated again. Since the time he knocked his “jobbery” (wife) everywhere become calm because when the madness is too much, the man will knock his wife uppercut and knock her “jobbery” so that the insult will less.
20.        Is it because your husband kept quiet and you think that you are wiser than him! You think that you are stronger than him! He will just knock you “jobbery”.
21.        Who shall be punished in everlasting destruction? Where will you be punished? The Bible said in everlasting destruction with fire that will come from the presence of Almighty God.
22.        The fire that will come from the Presence of Almighty God, has the fire not been revealed from His presence? I think you said that you are not afraid?
23.        Saint Paul said that I fear to find myself in judgment in the presence of God for God is a Consuming Fire. The day woman was created was the day devil was made manifest.
24.        There is way a man will be harsh on his fellow man, the other man will soften up and say, “My friend forget that thing,” and both will resolve the issue immediately.
25.        But if it is a woman she will tell you, “Today we will see the end, get ready!” You look at the person that is telling you to get ready, the legs she is standing with on the ground looks like single broomstick that you just give a simple kick and she will go up. That was why the olden people do not know God.
26.        They believed in their physical strength. When his wife insults him, he will hold her and pin her on the ground, beat her very well until her body becomes weak. Did I say you should hit your wife? No!
27.        But when she commits that which warrants that she should be beaten that way, then she will be beaten that way. When the mouth is too long the knife will be brought closer, women be careful.
28.        If you know He that is speaking to you, none of you will sleep tonight. Hold your mouth. When it is said that a woman’s mouth is what she is known for, it is a woman that doesn’t know God.
29.        A woman that knows God and fears Him does not open her mouth anyhow in the presence of her husband. She will have respect, humility, and obedience because she knows that it is her husband that kept her in her matrimonial home.
30.        There is way you will talk to your husband and he will lose his worth and value, lose his personality. He will start suspecting himself whether he is still a man, because you have reduced him to rubbles and the only thing that held him back is if he should act people will start telling him whether he still knows that you are still a woman.
31.        Does the teaching we received permit us to talk anyhow? Listen to me everybody should be careful. Anybody in this most holy Faith that will say that God has not given us the teaching that will make our homes to have peace, such a person is a liar.
32.        God gave us teaching to the extent that should give us peace with our children and the heathens, to the extent that everybody knew the boundary. Or is it because the man brought you, gave you a house, impregnated you and you have children, he has done evil by doing so. You are landlady. Who is landlord when you are in your father’s house and became landlady.
33.        If your money stretches from here to Jericho, without a husband a time is coming when your money will never give you joy, your cloths will not give you joy, there is nothing that will give you joy.
34.        You are enjoying your money, your wealth and everything because you are resting in your matrimonial home, is it a lie? No! Is there anything that gives joy more than that? Why are you upsetting your husband? Any woman troubling her husband is upsetting her family.
35.        The scripture say in everlasting destruction with fire that will come from the presence of Almighty God. God will torment you day and night forever and ever. Do not allow temporal enjoyment to put you into hell fire. Many of you that are still continuing with stubborn women as wives.
36.        You are continuing with them because of earthly pleasure which is just temporary, you enjoy it and then enjoy hell fire. Have you heard it? In other words, God had already decreed that no stubborn woman should be kept as wife.
37.        Have you seen that a man putting away an ungodly woman is scriptural, it is permitted by God from Old Testament to New Testament.
38.        When Vasti proved stubborn, what happened? She was put away. Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power?
39.        When He shall come to be glorified by His Saints and to be admired in all them that believed, because our testimony among you was believed on that day when the Lord will destroy all the wicked, all stubborn and disobedient people to the gospel, you will be spectators that day, it will never touch you because you have believed my words of testimony which I have passed unto you by the gospel of Christ.
40.        Obedience is better than sacrifice, this is ACTION TIME part 3. Why not say, “God, all I need is your grace. Give me the power, give me the courage. I am sorry for complaining yesterday. I am sorry for reasoning yesterday.
41.        I didn’t know that you were very much around me I want to obey you I have seen the reward, I now see that you really love me, you really want to save actually, help me help me, Lord.”
42.        Obedience is better than sacrifice. Put your hands together for God. Is there anybody that knows that this Message will come out? We tried the first, no way. We tried the second, the same thing and the Son of Man said, “Take this one and read it.”
43.        I didn’t read it and no human being here knows what was inside and nobody could remember a Message that was preached in 1997 that told you your stubbornness yesterday, your evil deeds of yesterday, and created a room for you to change your mind. Told you that this is Action Time and you should say, “God I am sorry!  I will never tread this dangerous path again. I never knew you were watching me”
44.        There are many ways God will speak to a man, this is one of the ways.
Obedience is better than sacrifice. No man can worship God by reasoning. No man, no woman can worship God by reasoning. Too much sense is what is killing us! When you are not in this faith, didn’t you know how you are?
45.        Did your reasoning help you? The more you reason the worst your character becomes and God came with the refiner the word of God is the only refiner that refines the heart of man. Is that not true?
46.        No man can worship God by reasoning, you can only worship God by faith, say, “God I know this commandment is a hard one, nevertheless that your word will stand I will do it I know this commandment is a very hard one.
47.        No man can do it unless you give him a helping hand give me a helping hand, and I will obey it that Your word will stand sure I don’t want to be a disobedient man of God, I don’t want to labor in vain, I don’t want to miss eternal life. I don’t want to be numbered among the disobedient people that will hear “Depart from me, I don’t know you! You workers of iniquity, you have only believed with your mouth, you have not obeyed my word for one day. I don’t want to hear that.
48.        I want to be numbered among the people that will be told “Come over this way, you belonged to the Father for obeying me. Look at your reward of eternal life.”
49.        I don’t want to be a disobedient man of God. I don’t want to make your word of non-effect. I want to be part of you, give me a helping hand stand by my side and I will execute this commandment.
50.        Don’t only limit your eye to things pertaining to unbelieving women take your own corner and find out that which you have not obeyed say, “God, immediately I leave this meeting ground, starting from now, by your help I will obey, through your word I will correct all”.
51.        Wives make the decision today to obey your husbands, husbands make the decision to obey Christ, the word of God. Husbands make the decision today to obey Christ, wives make the decision today to obey your husbands. Children take the decision to obey your parents, so that all of us together will earn the commendation of God that we are obedient people.
52.        Chapter 3, “The True Bread of Life,” preached by Bishop Okechukwu Nwankpa. My people, if it will be possible let us stop here tonight. Our people let us stop here what chapter did we stop we stopped at chapter 3 Is it chapter one and two only that we read?  And it is like this glory be to God till eternity. (the pastor speaking)  
53.        There are some that has decided not to be coming to fellowship (the Son of man speaking). Do you know why that person refused to come?
54.        One that did not come to fellowship, did such fellow shared in today’s blessings? No. (Pastor Dan speaking) Nwachukwu and Odinaka Nwanga, they are excommunicated from the gathering of the saints until God speaks otherwise.

55.      On this note, I say remain in your sanctified estate, remain blessed in Him eternally. Amen.
