BE VERY CAREFUL THAT YOU DO NOT FORGET THE THINGS YOU HAVE SEEN



Preached on 7th January 1995 At  Son of Man’s Family Altar By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN “THE SUPREME INTELLIGENCE” “Truth has no substitute” ©BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLD-WIDE

Decision is the power of life. God enjoined us in time past to make decisions we know we can keep for decision is the power of life.

The reason why many of us are not making any headway in this Faith is because, we have never for one day kept to our decisions. We have never been faithful to the decisions we have taken—concerning this Faith.


Not even one person in this Faith even kept to his vows before the Lord. We are spiritual Israelites. This word is still unto us till this very day. Because the Law of God is righteous, the Law of God is good, and the Law of God is perfect.   –The Son of Man

BE VERY CAREFUL (1)
The Book of Deuteronomy chapter 4 verses 1 through 9, “Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them , that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you.
2.            Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish aught from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baal-peor: for all the men that followed Baal-peor, the LORD thy God hath destroyed them from among you.
3.            But ye that did cleave unto the LORD your God are alive every one of you this day. Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.
4.            Keep therefore and do them ; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
5.            For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this Law, which I set before you this day?
6.            Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons.” KJV .
7.            Let us look into verse 9 again; I want to take my text from there: “Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons.” KJV .
8.            My text is coming from verse 9: “Be Very Careful That You Do Not Forget That Which Your Eyes Have Seen, lest the Fear of God Will Depart from Your Heart.”
9.            The moment somebody forgets God’s dealing with him, with His own people, the fear of God immediately vanishes from his heart. The Law of God automatically departs from him. That is why the people of Israel sinned against God in the wilderness several times. There was no time they sinned against God without first of all forgetting what God did for them in the land of Egypt and also in the wilderness.
10.         If they had remembered the mighty works of God all those years they journeyed, brethren, they would not have sinned against God. Now, the prophet of God was given them a commandment.
11.         Remember we are spiritual Israelites. This word is still unto us till this very day. Because the Law of God is righteous, the Law of God is good, and the Law of God is perfect. Remember, while Moses was encouraging them, he said, “Be very careful that you observe and keep all the Laws the Lord thy God had given unto you this day, because in doing them, ye shall prosper in all your ways.”
12.         Make sure that you do not break the Law, you do not diminish one word. In other words, you do not add and you do not subtract. You do not add to the Law, you do not subtract from the Law. You keep them the same way the Lord your God handed down unto you and by so doing, you shall be great in the sight of all other nations.
13.         They will call you a nation that has wisdom. Because your wisdom will know no bound, for God will be your wisdom that time. And while obeying God’s commandment, other nations also will fear you, honour you and even respect you because, they will see how close you are with your God, or how close your God always come down to you.
14.         Because there is no nation that has a god that is so close to them as Israel and we are testifying to the rest. In all the denominations we have seen on Earth, there has never been a time any Church has risen on Earth, that has a god that walks so close as our God, to the point that He answers with a Pillar of Cloud visible with human eyes.
15.         He answers us with Pillar of Fire which somebody could see with human eyes. Thus, it is not something that we read in the scriptures now. It is something that we have witnessed with our eyes. He answers us with audible voices which many have heard in our midst from Heaven. So, there has never been any Church that has walked so close to God as this little group.
16.         God is not doing all these things in vain. When God came down and was walking with the people of Israel starting from Egypt down to the wilderness, God was doing all these things so that He will be justified as a righteous judge.
17.         He was doing all these things so that no man will glory in His Presence. All He did was just for His Name sake, so that the people of Israel will not lay hand on anything to lay charge against God.
18.         For that reason, the people were strictly warned that they should always remember all that the Lord has been doing for them: how He delivered them from the hand of Pharaoh with the mighty hand, how He preserved their lives, how He parted the Red Sea, how He provided a shelter, provided even the Pillar of Fire that was leading them by night, and while they were going in the wilderness, the Lord became their Tailor.
19.         Their garment were never threaded, neither were their shoes scattered that the Lord could not amend them. The Lord had all these wonderful things. And other nations around them marveled and then glorified the God of Israel.
20.         The warning goes forth: “Be very careful that you do not forget all that the Lord had done unto you this day, lest the fear of God will depart from your hearts and then you will go into idolatry”.
21.         A little while, all these people that saw all these things, all the goodness of the Lord, people that had these testimonies around them, they forgot all that the Lord did unto them. They forgot all they witnessed with their eyes. The fear of the Lord departed from their hearts, they broke the Everlasting Covenant they made with God. Is it not a terrible thing?
22.         That is why I continue to tell you that no child of God can commit sin without first of all forgetting all that the Lord has been doing to him. When a man forgets how the Lord has been dealing with him, all the goodness of the Lord towards him all these years, up to this very moment, the tendency is there for him to dabble into sin. That is why sin is wickedness.
23.         Can you imagine your own friend that has been labouring all these while to sustain you, providing all your needs, giving you life, catering for you, doing everything, believing that you will just respect and honour him; just one day, you just deny everything He has been doing for you; you close your eyes, harden your heart and then pierce His heart. That is exactly what a sinner is doing to God.
24.         These people among all the people that were on Earth, they were the only people God chose and called His own. Not because of their righteousness, not because of any good thing they have done, just because of His Name sake He did it.
25.         We are not the largest group that has gathered in the Name of the Lord. There is nothing good in any of us. If man was to nominate, say, “God, take this Church to be your Bride,” I do not think we would have been nominated.
26.         Looking at us, the way we go, the number of the people, and our character and everything, you see, it is nothing to write home about. Thus, if a man was to nominate, I think Roman Catholic would have been the number one Church God would have chosen.
27.         After all, they are the greatest in number, or other Pentecostal group. But God did not do so. He chose us, we did not choose Him. He chose us and delivered us from the denominations with a mighty hand. He has been sustaining us.
28.         Some people were thinking that by now we would have ended the journey, yet we are still continuing, and He gave us His Laws and His Laws are perfect Laws, very good and righteous Laws. He said, “People that were outside were even commending the God of Israel saying, ‘No God ever gave such a righteous and good Laws unto his people like the God of Israel.’”
29.         Thus, the Laws God gave us to keep, they are righteous Laws. Yet we find faults with those things God said we should do. Although they are good, they are righteous, yet we cannot do them. Rather we chose to do those ones that God hates.Trying to provoke the Holy One of Israel to anger. God forbid!
30.         Now, the same thing God said in Deuteronomy chapter 4, that we should not diminish one word, we should not add, we should not subtract, that same thing was equally said in the book of Revelation chapter 22. In Revelation chapter 22, after writing the Holy Bible, the Lord sealed it. The last seal, the Holy Bible.
31.         Revelation chapter 22 verses 18 through 19. “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
32.         And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” KJV.
33.         God is still continuing, because He is a jealous God, He is also a Consuming Fire. He commanded the people never to depart from His Laws, but rather teach them to His sons and their son’s sons forever. And God we know is a Righteous Judge. Any day the people will draw away from following Him, they will never see God’s face anymore.
34.         Now, I am showing you all these things before I will speak harder on what I am going to say, because the moment God gives a people His Laws and they refuse to keep it, God will hand them over to reprobate spirit, so that they will go and behave anyhow and deny themselves, men with men, women with women.
35.         The moment somebody is handed over to a reprobate spirit, that is the end of the person’s life here on Earth and even in the Pilgrim race. That is when a man comes to a condition where whatever he does; God will not rebuke him again.
36.         If he does good, God will close His eyes, he does evil, God will close His eyes. That man is finished because he is now permitted to behave anyhow. In other words, God will now preserve him until the day of His final destruction.
37.         He may be in the Church jumping up and down yet God knows him as a hypocrite. All the sins he has committed so far, God will be storing them in His book, all the confessions he hid under his lips, God will just store them in His books, to be revealed on the Judgment Day.
38.         On that Judgment Day, all that never knew him as a hypocrite will that day know him as a hypocrite. All that have been seeing him carrying Bible, those things that he did not want people to hear, the whole world will now see it, because it will not only be televised, the cassette will be played also.
39.         The cassette will be playing, all that the person spoke with his mouth, because the Lord said that every idle word that proceedeth out of our mouth, we must answer for it on the judgment day. That’s why in our message titled, Principle of Christian living part 2 and Christian Conversation. The Lord warned us and taught us how we should speak as children of God.
40.         God gave us mouth to praise Him, not to curse and not to utter blasphemy or filthy conversation. That’s why a child of God has his own way of conversation. He does not converse like the world, he does not laugh like the world, he does not talk like the world. Amen.

BE VERY CAREFUL (2)
Deuteronomy chapter 5 verses 1 through 10, “And Moses called all Israel, and said unto them, Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that ye may learn them, and keep, and do them.
2.            The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. The LORD made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day…”
3.            This covenant was not that one He made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This is now a new covenant. Like I told you that when we made a covenant with God, we did not call our Pastor to come and attest to it. Everyone’s covenant with his God must remain sealed with his own blood.
4.            Thus, you have to follow God even unto death. Even if your Pastor or your prophet says that you are not going, you continue because none of them made the vow for you. You made the vow to follow God. They made their own vows also. If they want to continue with their vows, that is left for them. If they do not want to continue, that will not discourage you. Go ahead!
5.            God is looking for one man that will do like Elijah who will continue when others have stopped. That is what God is looking for; especially at an hour like this, when we see deep sleep coming upon mankind. Children of God do not remember what they are again.
6.            I cannot imagine a soldier in the warfront seeing two enemies around him, bullets going up and down, and he is dosing. He has the bullet, he has the rifle, he has everything at his disposal to wage war and then he is sleeping.
7.            That you have passed sleepless nights for one year in the trench or in the warfront, is that an excuse? Sleeping in the warfront means risking his life. Enemies will just carry him alive. That’s the worst thing that will happen to a child of God. I keep on saying this.
8.            You do not know what I mean by enemies carrying somebody alive. That is somebody, carrying, having the message and missing rapture. He has been taken alive by his enemy because he has no excuse to give why he did not make it. It is when rapture strikes and he misses it that his eyes will open. He will realize all his foolishness all the years.
9.            That’s why I keep on saying that any child or any student that has wisdom normally labours seriously to pass at the first examination. Because if you dare drop at any promotional examination, if you are not careful, you can hardly secure promotion at the second trial. You can hardly secure it.
10.         You see young, young stars that are very, very hot, very clever ones coming up maybe from class two joining you in class three again, and beat you down again, and continue their journey, because they are serious with what they are doing. And that person will be there marking time, causing you stumbling block. That’s why we should be very, very careful.
11.         Now watch, these people are receiving another admonition from Moses to be very careful to observe and to keep all the Laws the Lord had commanded them to keep. This covenant was made between God and these people that were alive as at that time.
12.         We are not talking about the denominations or the Pentecostals or people that have left the message, a new covenant we have made also with our God. This covenant is between us that are in this Faith this moment and God that is in Heaven.
13.         Not the one the whole Church pledged before Him which they have broken today. We have pledged this one, that God, forever we will worship You, we will see the end of it, whatever it will take us, let it take us, we are ready to pay the price.
14.         Now we are saying this, this is the word of our mouth, this is our vow, God in Heaven is hearing it. God is very mindful about this family and as many as have made this covenant with Him. He is watching us every day. I know there are people that are just in the Church for coming sake, sitting down for sitting sake, saying, “Brother shalom, sister shalom.”
15.         They know they are not making any headway, they know very well that they are not growing: “Brother, please pray for me, brother pray for me.” They know that they are not making any headway. I am telling you the truth.
16.         So many sisters in our midst know this. So many brothers in our midst know this. Their lives bear witness that they are not growing anymore and their desire is to grow, but why can’t they grow? Until you pay them private visit in their families, you will not know why they are not growing.
17.         When they just spray their mat they just lie down there, that is all for the day. From kitchen to the mat, from the mat to the parlour, from parlour to bed. From day to day, they can hardly open the Bible, they can hardly sit down and think, you can hardly see them sitting down. Visit them ten times in a day, they are just sleeping, they are either lying on the bare floor or they are lying on the mat or carrying food up and down.
18.         Such people, when the word of God is being preached, you see them sitting down so loose, you can only see them very agile when they are carrying food; sitting down in our midst; young men and women alike. When the word of God is being preached, you see them very, very loose, but when it comes to making money, come and see them, they become very serious because they now want to make their own money. Money is now important than everlasting life.
19.         Let it not be so among us in this family! God has given us Laws that are righteous, Laws that are good, that we should follow him, that we should never look at, for there has never been a time God has come close to His people like now.
20.         No people on Earth has a God that is so close to them as us, the God that is so merciful as us, and we have seen His mighty hand. We know how God delivered us from end time message, we know how God fought our battles for us, when our enemies close up against us from Aba, from Lagos, giants in End-time message, people that we could not even stand before and proclaim that we believe so, so and so, yet God delivered us and put His fear in them, scared them away.
21.         If we were to defend ourselves, we would have gone back to End-time message. Because they rose up like flood intending to draw us back into captivity, because before then, the Bridal Revival came into our midst and then a message was preached titled, “He is Risen”.
22.         When they heard that He is risen, they all came from here and there, just like the Pharisees heard that Lazarus is risen, they all came from east and west, went to Lazarus to put him back to death. The same way, they came intending to put us back to our former condition: “You see, the prophet said! You see the prophet said, you see the prophet said…”
23.          What if the Lord had not intervened? What do you think would have been our condition? We would have followed them back into Egypt and perish there. But the Lord sustained us till today. In our midst, who and who could quote the sermon book, but God came down and sustained us with His mightier hand.
24.         We have witnessed all these with our eyes. But let us not forget all these things. Let us never come to a point where these things will sound common to us, lest we will depart from His wrath and we give ourselves to things God hate.
25.          You can never commit sin until you forget the Laws of God. You can never commit sin until you forget what God has done for you, because sin is wickedness. You can never commit sin until you forget that you are a child of God and that you should live a holy life.
26.         A child of God does not commit sin because God’s seed abideth in him. When you forget what you are, you see yourself rolling into sin. Amen

GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE
Deuteronomy 5 verse 3, “The LORD made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day. The LORD talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire, (I stood between the LORD and you at that time, to shew you the work of the LORD:
2.             for ye were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying, I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
3.            Thou shalt have none other gods before me. Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in Heaven above, or that is in the Earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the Earth:
4.            Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.” KJV.
5.            You see, God is a jealous God—a very, very jealous God. That’s why he is telling us all these things. It takes a jealous husband and a jealous wife to live together in harmony. There is no way, read your holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation; there was no place God condemned jealousy.
6.            There was no place he condemned it. If a woman is not jealous over her husband, she can never be faithful to that man. If a man is not jealous over his own wife, he can never be faithful to his wife.
7.            What I am saying is that it is jealousy that makes love grow. Jealousy sustains love. When a man is jealous over his wife, he would not like any man to run round her to deceive her. He will like to preserve that woman.
8.            When a woman is jealous over her husband, the same way, she wouldn’t like any woman to come and mess up with her husband, she wouldn’t even like her husband to walk recklessly. Are you getting what I am saying?
9.            The same way God loved His own people and was very jealous over them. Because among all the people on Earth, there was no other group He selected except that little group. We remember this that when the Lord came down in our midst, He spoke these words unto us from Heaven.
10.         HE SAID, “AMONG ALL THE DENOMINATIONS ON EARTH, THERE IS NO ONE I HAVE TAKEN EXCEPT THIS LITTLE GROUP, AND I HAVE VISITED YOU SEVERAL TIMES AND I WILL CONTINUE TO VISIT YOU.
11.         “I WILL PERFORM MY SIGNS AND WONDERS IN YOUR MIDST. I WILL SHOW YOU MYSELF IN DIFFERENT WAYS, THROUGH PILLAR OF CLOUD, THROUGH PILLAR OF FIRE; EVEN I WILL SPEAK TO YOU BY AUDIBLE VOICE FROM THE MOUTH OF MY SERVANT.
12.         “I will take you, only hearken unto me, obey my instructions.” Is it not the same thing like this? And then we made a covenant with him, and then he told us what it takes to keep his covenant with him. Keeping God’s covenant with him means continuing with him, it means obeying his Laws. We have it in our tapes.
13.         God is a jealous God. There is no day he will see us walking recklessly and contrary and then He will close his mouth. He must surely react. It is only a foolish man that will see a young man or an old man running around his wife and then he closes mouth.
14.         If a man can never close his mouth, do you think Christ can close His mouth seeing His own wife, the Church of Christ, His own Bride, seeing somebody running around her to defile her? Or seeing the Church flirting with other groups.
15.         Do you think Christ will be happy to see that? That’s why first of all, before a woman would be faithful to her husband, she must remember how that man actually love her, how the man treats her right from her father’s compound, all that the man has been doing for her to sustain her life, to keep her going. If any woman remembers all these things, she can never play prostitution or harlotry or unfaithfulness.
16.         No woman can play unfaithfulness without first of all forgetting all she has seen in her husband. Forgetting all the good things her husband has been doing for her, forgetting what she is in the hand of her husband. When a woman forgets all these things, she rolls into fornication and idolatry.
17.         It is equally applicable to a man. The people of God are always stubborn and rebellious, the people of Israel forgot all the things the Lord did unto them, remember we are spiritual Israelites. They forgot everything God did for them and then they rolled into idolatry, they went and lusted and God was not pleased with them.
18.         What were they lusting after? They were lusting after the flesh. Can the flesh profit them anything? God gave them spiritual Laws that could keep their souls, because in verse 9 of where we read, God was talking to them concerning their souls. Because the souls of a man is the throne of God in a man. That is the life of a man. Man is nothing but a living soul. When the soul perishes, that man automatically perishes.
19.         By keeping the Law, they will keep their souls. Now, this question of God being a jealous God, God repeated it often and often, even the same Law He gave them in Exodus chapter 20 verses 1 through 10, there also He told them that He is a jealous God. God made them to understand that He is also a consuming fire.
20.         Deuteronomy chapter 4 verses 23 through 24. “Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of anything, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee. For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God. KJV.   
21.         Have you seen it? He is a consuming fire even a jealous God. Many times, He consumed them in the wilderness with fire from Heaven; He consumed the people that followed Korah, Dathan and Abiram. Many times also he visited them with fire from Heaven because of idolatry and consumed them, until Moses placed himself in the gap and interceded on their behalf.
22.         Now, St. Paul speaking through the Holy Ghost, knew that God never changed and will never change forever. He was warning the Church in Hebrews chapter 12 verses 28 through 29.
23.         Now, what was the essence of making the people to understand that God is a jealous God and he is a consuming fire, that is, that nobody should play with the Law of God, for the Law of God is perfect, the Law of God is righteous?
24.         The Law of God is powerful, it is perfect, it is righteous, converting the soul. He is warning them so that they will know the type of God they are worshipping. Any day they depart from God, God must surely depart from them. Any day they just go into idolatry, any day they go into lusting, lusting after the flesh, desiring carnal things, going back to what they rejected, God will never, never be pleased with such people again.
25.         The same way they were lusting after the flesh in the wilderness, going into abhorring, desiring evil, even to the extent that some started doing it in the congregation in the eyes of Moses, the Lord was not happy with them.
26.         As many as had such spirit in them, the Lord never spared them. He halted their journey in the wilderness by death. That time they died physically, as spiritual Israelites, the people will be sitting down in the Church yet they are dead. That’s why I want your eyes of faith to open now.
27.         You can be sitting down in the Church yet you are dead. As far back as 1933, the Lord spoke through William Branham concerning the denominations; he said they are dead and they will rise no more. Yet they are all in our midst carrying Bible, clapping hand, having revival here and there that saves nobody.
28.         That’s why in all their crusades, in all their seminars, they just go, millions of people will come, they go home and remain the same. Because nothing is going out again that is powerful enough to convert the soul. But the word of God is powerful and it is converting the soul. The Law of God is perfect, making a sinner a saint. That’s what God is saying. Any word of God that can never make a sinner a saint is not powerful.
29.         In the wilderness, God consumed them with fire physically, now spiritual Israelites, God will consume them with fire, that will be in the lake of fire and that is what God called second death. Because they have died spiritually, because they desired carnal things, they lusted after the flesh, and Bible said that they that live in the flesh can never please God and he that liveth in the flesh, now that is alive, he is also dead.
30.         I WONDER HOW MANY DEAD PEOPLE THAT ARE SITTING DOWN IN THE CHURCH, OCCUPYING THE BENCHES, WHEN YOU LOOK ROUND, YOU THINK THEY ARE ALIVE, THEY ARE NOT ALIVE. THE SAME WAY GOD HALTED THE MOVE IN THE WILDERNESS, THE SAME WAY HE WILL HALT THEIR MOVE SPIRITUALLY.
31.         That’s why when you see people making horrible confessions, watch them, watch their lives, when they come out, you will know, for their lives will change. But I have never seen one that ever lusted after the things of the world and then come out. I have never seen one.
32.         What you will be hearing from them always is, “Please brethren, pray for me. Church pray for me. Brother just lift me up in prayer,” because he knows that something has gone wrong in his life. He has walked away from God and he has dethatched.
33.          Do not allow anybody to deceive you. When God halts the move of a man, when God stops it, it does not mean that that man will be removed from sight, we do not need any angel to come down to tell us that God has left Roman Catholic. Do you need any angel to come and tell you that? Roman Catholic is not walking in the light, I am not seeing them. People are still going in, are they going in to be saved? What of Anglican Church? God left them many, many years ago.
34.         BY THE YEAR 1955, WILLIAM BRANHAM DECLARED THUS SAITH THE LORD TO THE PENTECOSTALS: “THE PENTECOSTALS ARE DEAD, THEY HAVE LEFT GOD, THEY HAVE DENOMINATED, TAKING BLASPHEMOUS NAMES AND THEY WILL RISE NO MORE, THUS SAITH THE LORD.”
35.         And he told us what will be made of the Pentecostals in the last days. He said that they will be left with nothing but speaking in tongue, which is false tongue without interpretation. Rock ‘n’ Roll music, schism and quarreling in their midst and then prosperity. Then when you look into the Pentecostals of the last days they are dead, because the moment the bride ministry comes up, no other ministry will come up again.
36.         THE BRIDE MINISTRY IS THE ONLY AND THE LAST CHRISTIAN MOVEMENT THAT WILL CLOSE THE GENERATION OF CHRISTIANS. AFTER THIS MINISTRY, THERE IS NO OTHER MINISTRY THAT IS COMING UP. YOU CAN’T GET ANY OTHER CHRISTIAN MINISTRY RISING UP HIGHER THAN THIS.
37.         THIS ONE (THE BRIDE MINISTRY) IS COMING TO GATHER THE LOOSE ENDS AND IT IS COMING TO CLOSE THE CHAPTER. IF A MINISTRY WILL COME UP AGAIN HIGHER THAN THIS, WHERE WILL IT BE SOURCING THE FOOD? WHAT WILL IT BE USING? IS IT NOT THIS HOLY SCRIPTURE?
38.         IF CHRIST WILL COME BACK AGAIN, WILL HE DO MORE THAN THESE? PEOPLE WERE EXPECTING ANOTHER MESSIAH, WHEN THE MESSIAH WAS ALREADY ON THE LAND. TODAY AGAIN, THE BRIDE MINISTRY IS THE MINISTRY OF CHRIST. IF ANOTHER MINISTRY OF CHRIST WILL COME UP, WHAT WILL IT DO? WHAT WILL IT PREACH?
39.         WHAT YOU WILL BE SEEING COMING UP WILL BE CHURCHES, THAT IS, INDIVIDUAL CHURCHES, INDIVIDUAL INDUSTRIES WILL BE COMING UP. PEOPLE WILL BE BREAKING AWAY FROM THEIR CHURCHES, FORMING ONE MOVE OR ANOTHER MOVE, A LITTLE WHILE THEY WILL UNITE ALSO. I CALL THEM UNITED PENTECOSTALS.
40.         BECAUSE ALREADY THEY HAVE UNITED IN THEIR SYSTEMS, WHILE THE BRIDE IS GOING AS AN INDEPENDENT FAITH, NOT MIXING UP WITH ANY GROUP AT ALL. PEOPLE WILL TRY TO AFFILIATE WITH IT, BUT BY THE TIME SHE OPENS HER COLOUR, THEY WILL RUN AWAY FROM HER.
41.         Until a child of God has the fear of God in his heart and sees God from this angle, he can never obey the Laws of God with his heart. However, any day you think that God is a merciful God, so, so and so, you deceive yourself.
42.         Start seeing God as a jealous God who has married you, who purchased you. You are no longer owning yourself. Is that not scriptures? Christ owns us, whether we die or we live, we are all Christ. We belong to Him. He purchased us with His own precious blood. We are now slaves of Christ. Whatever He tells us to do is what we are going to do, and because we are obedient servants, He is jealous over us.
43.         We are obedient sons and daughters, He is jealous over us; He wouldn’t like us to run round after other gods, He wouldn’t like us to play with His Word.   
44.         The moment one leaves the word of God, he becomes an idolater. When you forsake the word of God, where then will you go? There must be something that pulled that person out of the word of God and that is what he is obeying.
45.         Today, lying is idolatry. Because the god that has pulled him out from the Kingdom of God is the god that we worshipped in the secret, which we have now seen in the open. And we know the god we worshipped, the god of fornication, that is not the God we worship now. Somebody will not understand me. Let us continue.
46.         Hebrews 12 verses 28 through 29, “Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.” KJV.
47.         Let us have grace that can never be moved. We have received a kingdom which no man can take away from us, which can never fail, which can never be moved, and we know it is by Grace.
48.         Now that we have His Grace, unmerited favour, we never labored to get it, we never desired it, we never chose it but God decided to choose us. Let us serve God with reverence and godly fear. Why?
49.         Verse 29, “For our God is a consuming fire.”
50.         For our God is a consuming fire. By the mouth of two or three witnesses, the Lord has established this truth. The same thing He did to Israelites naturally, the same thing He is telling us also.
51.         Remember this book of Hebrews was directed to the Gentiles. What God spoke to them, He gave as Law. Remember this was the Law He gave them which they could not keep. They were finding fault with God every time, they were disobedient and stubborn. Remember He came to His own and His own received Him not. Then He went to the despised of the Gentiles and they received Him.
52.         As many as received Him, to them he gave the power to become the sons and daughters of God. He came to us with the same word He gave them. What they could not keep, we decided to keep it. That is why we are sons and daughters of God today.
53.         And then what He told them is what He is telling us. Now. He said, “Now be very careful, having given you grace, you that in time past were lost and separated from the life that is in God, having no hope of eternal life, and now, I have lifted you because of the stubbornness of my people, because of the disobedience of my people, I have now come unto you and you have accepted me. Be very careful that you keep all my ordinances which I give you this very day. I am a jealous God also. I am a consuming fire, walk ye before me with fear and trembling.”
54.         Let us worship God with reverence and godly fear. When God gives a people His Laws, which the Bible described from where we read, as just Laws and as good Laws, let us go back to Deuteronomy again.
55.         Deuteronomy chapter 4 verses 6 through 9 again, “Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
56.         For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this Law, which I set before you this day?” KJV.
57.         The Law of God is a righteous Law, not an unrighteous Law. And there is no god that has ever given his people this type of good Laws and yet the people couldn’t obey them. Not that they couldn’t obey, they willingly decided not to obey. Because if they had remembered how the Lord had been dealing with them, how He had been merciful unto them, how He had been leading them from the hand of Pharaoh up to that extent, I saw no reason why they couldn’t have obeyed Him.
58.         If we can sit down now and remember how the Lord had been dealing with us starting from End-time message up to this point, even starting from the Pentecostal to this very day, I see no reason why we should disobey God, I see no reason why we should find it difficult to obey the word of God. If we do not obey the word of God, who then do we obey? Do we now obey the word of man?
59.         And we know that our last hope is in God. If we miss Him, we miss Him forever. If we serve Him acceptably, we will inherit everlasting life. But when we do not serve him acceptably, then we will go into everlasting torment. And it is in the power of our hand to worship him because the Laws he has given to us, are things that are righteous and just for our own good.
60.         There is no portion of the Bible that we will obey that will make God to just become what he is not tomorrow. What am I saying? God does not profit anything in our worship. People worship God as if they are pleasing God, I am doing it so that God will live; no, we are worshipping God for our own good.  
61.         God is Holy, He is God, He changeth not. All along He has been dwelling in Heaven. Are we there? That we worship God is just for our own good. People do not come to mock God like Chinasa sleeping in this gathering. But if it is food now, watch her. Amen.

GOD IS MINDFUL OF HIS WORD
Let’s be very, very careful. Look at the danger of departing from God’s word. Naturally speaking, the people of Israel, when they departed from God, God departed from them. He did not stop there; He visited them with His wrath immediately. Many of them died instant death in the wilderness. Some became sick.
2.            To us now as Gentiles that were grafted in by Grace, we will not die physically, we will die spiritually. But at last, we will die physically in hellfire.
3.            Now, when God gave His Laws to a people, righteous Laws, and the people refused them, see what happened to them.
4.            Romans chapter 1 verse 18 through 25, “For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them…”
5.              Which means the Law of God, the statutes of God, they are all very clear before them. What God demands from them are very, very clear before us. We have seen His nature, we have seen His attributes, even nature speaks about God, and what we should know about God, they are all revealed in the Holy Scriptures.
6.            “... for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse…”
7.             Which means we have no excuse why we should depart from God’s  word, why we should break his Laws. There is no excuse any man can give why he cannot keep the word of God: “It is too hard, it is too hard, who can do it? Is that an excuse before God? Remember He is a consuming fire, a jealous God. God did not give us His Laws for giving sake.   
8.            “…Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
9.            Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
10.         Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves…
11.         Because of the lust of their own hearts, brethren, let us be very, very careful in this Faith. Let’s be mindful of the word of God for God is a consuming fire. He will never spare us.
12.         The Bible said that because of the lust of their own hearts, God gave them over to reprobate mind. They first of all forgot God in their heart. They first of all decided in their heart to stop the journey. They started finding fault, they couldn’t go any longer, they were lusting in their heart.
13.         When they were lusting in their heart, God was no longer pleased with them. These were the people that have known the word of God, the Bible is very open before them. Remember, this one is Roman’s.
14.         God is speaking to the Gentiles now: that if we come to a point where after seeing His greatness, seeing His Laws, seeing the Bible open before us, we still give our heart over to lust, the same thing God promised in his word is what he is going to do unto us.
15.         Because He is mindful over His word, He watches over it. He can’t break it.
16.         Verse 24 again! “…Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts…”
17.         Because of the lust of their own hearts, God gave them over to uncleanness. Have you not seen it in the camp now? Is it clear before everybody? What if they come out and speak the hard truth, they will tell you, “It has started walking in me for many, many years. For weeks now, I have been battling with it, I have been battling over it, I pray, I pray”; because of the lust of their own hearts.
18.         Why should the heart of a child of God wander away from the statutes of God? What could draw away the heart of a child of God from the word of God, to lust after evil things and then be enticed?
19.         Now, the moment somebody is praying, like they claimed they were doing, I can’t believe it that somebody might be praying, talking to God and God will show him a defying vision in the Church. Something that will make that person to stop praying.
20.         Like a woman was testifying the other time, she said, “While I was praying even here now, I saw erected manhood”. That was the lust of her heart. If I had stepped to question her, “Did you see the brother or the man that had the erected manhood?” The answer would have been yes.
21.         She saw a picture of a man naked having that kind of a manhood. Before then, her heart had already desired it, she had already lusted in her heart after evil things and for that reason, God had to give her over to uncleanness. And instantly, the prayer stopped.
22.         She will be visualizing it, watching it, looking it this way and that way, until her eyes will open, she will recognize that she was not even dreaming. Because God magnified the picture that has been in her heart.
23.         The Bible said that dream comes through multitude of thoughts. When people think evil in their hearts, God will allow them to continue thinking evil, and then Satan will bring everything and magnify it and make it clear. Since you came in here, I want that devil to come here and torment you again. Has he been tormenting you? Why? Because a standard has been lifted in your life. Your heart has never been idle again. Because an idle mind is the devil’s workshop.
24.         Satan has no place, there is nowhere he can accuse you. Satan cannot come in without first of all accusing you. He will present what you are guilty of, and then he will attack you from there. When people lusted in their hearts, God gave them over to uncleanness. What happened?
25.         ...to dishonour their own bodies between themselves….”
26.         You see people masturbating: “I was sleeping, I saw this on my body.” How do you do that? Because they had already lusted in their hearts. They started dishonouring themselves within themselves, men and women alike.
27.         That of the men were visible because they could see it fluting on their body, but the women also were feeling the same way when they got up from their bed. Many of them confessed they were feeling that a man slept with them. To me I said, this has been the thought of their hearts, they were given over to uncleanness.
28.         What am I saying? I do not need any miracle or any prophet to come down from Heaven to tell me that God has not stopped the move of many people. God has stepped down many people already. Because I can balance it word for word in the holy Bible, I can balance it with the sermon book. They lusted after evil things and God gave them over to reprobate spirit.
29.         Verse 25, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”.
30.         Now watch from now, people can no longer accept the truth. All these people whose journey has been completed already, whose journey has stopped in the wilderness, they can never be happy to accept the truth again. Lift up the truth, they become worried, their faces will change, they will try to at least place the word of God to suit their evil desires. The revival will now be among the remnants that still have the spirit of God in them.
31.         Let me tell you, I love God so much. When the people committed whoredom, when they first of all murmured against God’s servants and found fault with God, God took an oath saying, “As surely as I live, twenty years and above will never smell my rest. I must finish them in the wilderness.” Moses interceded and said, “God, do not kill them in the sight of your enemies, less they will say you are no longer able to take them home.”
32.         God said, “I have hearkened unto your prayers, nevertheless, my word standeth sure.” What God did was to postpone the death. But before God, God knew that only a remnant was left. While they journeyed along, God continued killing them, placing stumbling block until He eliminated all of them.
33.         From the day this Church committed a grievous sin against God, from the day this Church found fault with God and murmured against God’s servants and that voice went forth that “I will be visiting you because of the remnant, I will be visiting, (present continuous tense);” I knew that God must surely halt the move along the way, that gradually He will be dropping people to bring His Word to pass.
34.         That is why before you worship God, you must first of all understand Him to be a consuming fire, and then you will worship Him with reverence and with fear. People easily forget things. People like my wife, they easily forget things and that’s why they roll into so many troubles.
35.         THIS IS NOT THE MESSAGE THAT SOMEBODY WILL BE HEARING AND THEN BE FLICKERING HIS OR HER EYES, BECAUSE GOD IS ABOUT TO MAKE THE LAST MOVE AND THIS LAST MOVE WILL ONLY SAVE FEW. Only few will wriggle out of it, and they will just be saved like people that are delivered from fire, they will not find it easy.
36.         This is the last move, after this, what you will expect is rapturing of the saints. People will be purified with fire. When you hear “Facing the fire,” fire means purifier. That fire will burn off excess flesh, the spot and the wrinkle that remain in our flesh, persecution will take it away. Baptism of fire, that is what we are going to face from now.
37.         When God gives people good Laws, good statutes to follow and they refuse to follow them; God will permit them to behave anyhow. Now, follow whichever way you want to follow, that which is right in your eyes, do it. And remember that every way that seemeth right in the sight of a man, the end of it is destruction.
38.         The same word God spoke to the people in the day of Ezekiel, when He gave them His Laws and they could not obey, watch what God told them.
39.         Ezekiel chapter 20 verses 24 through 25,“Because they had not executed my judgments, but had despised my statutes, and had polluted my sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers' idols. Wherefore I gave them also statutes that were not good, and judgments whereby they should not live.” KJV.
40.         You see what happened to these people. When they neglected the Laws of God and they went into abhorring, God decided to help them in their unbelief. To give even Laws and statutes that could not help them, that could not perfect them, that even help them to die. In other words, any man that wants to die, God will help him to die.
41.          If you do not want to follow God, you are tired, God will help you. However, where you want to follow God, God will back you up. Had it been that they obeyed the commandment of the Lord to execute judgment, God would have been backing them up, fighting their wars for them.
42.         But they said no, “We won’t do it anymore.” They became tired, they fainted along the way, God said okay, “Since it is like this; let me help you to die very well. Take this one,” then they rejoiced with it, simple, simple message.
43.         Now people do not want to take hard message again, hard message is stumbling them, they do not want to obey the message of perfection, the message of holiness, they do not believe that a man’s heart can be pure, perfect and holy. And God said, “Okay! So, you want to go after your fathers, your Pentecostal fathers, now you want simple, simple milk that you will drink, a little lying, a little cheating, a little fornication, okay, do not worry, take this one.”
44.         And then, every day, it would be, “For God so loved the world. Every day, for God so loved the world. Every weapon of war fashioned against you can never prosper! God will provide all your needs according to riches in glory!”
45.         Your enemies will not kill you quite alright, but you have died already spiritually. You are increased in wealth, but you are poor, wretched, miserable, naked, yet you know it not. God loves you quite alright, yet in His love, He has consumed you with His anger. That was exactly what He did to the people in the time of Ezekiel and the people perished.
46.         People came so close dictating to the prophets to tell them sweet, sweet things, that they would not like hard, hard things again: “This is what we want you to tell us. Do not go that way you are going again.”
47.         Before then, they had already departed from the Laws of God, the Laws God gave them that were righteous and perfect, that could convert the soul, they departed from them. Amen.

THE DANGER OF FORSAKING GOD’S WORD
Proverbs chapter 1 verse 24 through the end. “Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
2.           I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh…”
3.           You see, God is saying that when He called, nobody cared to take heed, nobody cared to answer, when He gives us counsel, nobody wants to take instructions from God. He said, “For that reason, watch me, I am a jealous God, I am a consuming fire, when calamity will come upon you, you will call me that day and I will close my ears, I will never hear you, I will never listen, I will never answer. I will rather laugh at you.”
4.           Can you imagine God laughing at human being! Do you know that on that day, people will be rolling into hellfire, God will be somewhere laughing, because He first of all sent out His call, He sent forth His hands to save, but people did not want to take it. Then God will be somewhere laughing. Which means, when people were making their confession of lust, God was laughing. Because they couldn’t take God’s counsel.
5.           Even after the message went forth preparing our hearts for Holy Communion, people couldn’t take the counsel. God was somewhere laughing at them at their calamity. When you will be shouting, “God eh! God where are you? God why did you hate me?”
6.           God will be laughing, “When I called you, did you hear me? When I gave you counsel, did you take my counsel? The same way you treated me, the same way I am treating you, after all, any seed a man soweth, that he shall reap.”
7.           You see the danger of closing ones ear when the word of God is being preached? You see the danger of neglecting God’s instruction?
8.           When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me…
9.           Is it not a horrible thing? Wake up early in the morning, fast and pray, because tribulation has come, persecution has come and you were not faithful with God for one day, now you want God to deliver you!
10.        God was able to deliver Shedrack, Meshach and Abednego because they took His counsel, they answered His call, they obeyed His commandment even unto death. God was able to answer Daniel the same way, He answered Noah, He answered Job. Why? Because they were mindful of God’s word.
11.        Job said, “My righteousness I hold fast,” he couldn’t lay down the standard. He could not at all. He couldn’t play with it, even when his own wife joined people in the world to accuse Job; Job indicted the woman, and said, “Why do you speak like one of these foolish women in the city? Why do you behave like one of these foolish Churches around? My integrity I will hold very hard, I will never, never speak blasphemy against my God.”
12.        God said in the time of trouble, in the time of calamity, these people will now wake and seek Him day and night, early hours in the morning you see them kneeling down, shouting, “God ehh!” God said, “I will never answer.” Is it not in the Bible?
13.        …For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
14.        For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil. KJV.
15.        This is the voice of God. When you hear God and obey Him, you should not be afraid, God must surely deliver you. By day or by night, call upon Him, He will hear, because He is near us. That’s why the Bible said, “If will draw near unto God, He will draw near unto us.”
16.        Look at God! God is just standing here like this pulpit and this little radio cassette. Right now they are very close, this little cassette is still stationary, it is not moving; now, I have drawn this book afar. The cassette is still standing there. It is not moving. Now, this book is far from this cassette because this book has been drawn afar.
17.        Then, I bring it close now, the cassette remains in its own position, it is not moving. That is how God is. The same place God is standing is where He is standing till today.
18.        When you come near unto God, then God is near to you. When you draw away from God, God is far from you. Are you getting the illustration now? Drawing near unto God means obeying his word, obeying His statutes and His precepts, walking according to His commandments.   
19.        And as many as obey God and walk according to His commandment, they can never be afraid in the time of trouble. In the time of calamity, God will never laugh at them; rather, God will come down and deliver them. Because they have obeyed him, they have represented Him very well here on Earth.
20.        We have never seen a nation that has a God so good as the God of Israel whom we worship continually. Let’s look at another scripture.
21.        The book of Isaiah chapter 66 verses 22 through 24, “For as the new Heavens and the new Earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.
22.        And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh. KJV.
23.        Now you see, as many as will forsake God, will be an abhorring. As many as will forsake the Laws of God, in the new Heaven and in the new Earth God has promised to create which is equally in line with revelations.
24.        The book of Revelation told us that John saw the new Heaven and the new Earth coming down from Heaven, Isaiah the prophet equally saw it as a prophet coming.
25.        He said, “All those that forsake God and His Laws, they will never inherit it. They can never come to New Jerusalem to worship God. Rather, they will have their own portion in the fire.” And this fire Isaiah is saying is the same one John the revelator saw in the book of revelation as the lake of fire which burneth with fire and brimstones, which is the second death.
26.        You see the danger of forsaking God’s word. The moment a man forsakes God’s word, what awaits him is nothing but destruction. In first John chapter 2 verse 16, when people were lusting, what are they lusting after? Lust is a grievous sin in the sight of God. What makes people not to worship God acceptably is nothing but the lust of their hearts, the lust on evil things.
27.        Today, both young and old, the only thing that is hindering them from coming to God is nothing but the lust of the flesh, what sinful man desires. What prevented Linus from worshipping God acceptably if not the lust of the flesh?
28.         All the people that were making these horrible confessions, what were they confessing? Were they not lust of the flesh? And those things were the things that were hindering them from worshipping God acceptably. Let’s be very careful.
29.        First John chapter 2 verse 16, “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. KJV.
30.        Brethren, you see that lust does not come from God. Which means, somebody can be in the Church and his mind will be in the world. Somebody can be in the Church while preaching is going on, his mind, his heart will be in his kitchen, in his business, in his work place.
31.        Just like you are here now, the word of God is going forth; your mind will be at Abuja surveying your house, surveying your work place; that will be a horrible thing. Because your mind has been wandered away and while the mind wandered away, you can’t catch what is going on again.
32.        That’s why I do not believe that somebody can sleep while a message is going on under anointing unless that person receives a false anointing that will cause him to sleep. If God has caused me to stay awake and preach His word, he must cause somebody to listen. Because the word of God is judgment to all that will hear, and judgment to all that will close their ears from hearing.
33.         Let us be very, very careful brethren. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the world, they do not come from the word, they come from the devil. Since we know that these things come from the devil, it means that people are in the Church and also in the world, which means, the body is in the Church, the heart is in the world.
34.        How can I imagine myself coming into the Church and then be desiring to commit fornication? Be lusting to see a naked woman, a naked brother, a naked sister, when I know that I am sitting in Heavenly places with Christ Jesus.
35.        Even when I know that in the presence of God, we are all angels: That brother does not know that sister is sitting beside him. Sister does not know the difference between her body and the body of the brother while in the Church.
36.        Outside the Church they may rob one another and have some feelings, but in the Church, even if brother is carrying sister in the legs, he can never feel any sensation, because the anointing that is coming from the pulpit is powerful to break the yoke.
37.        Everybody is seeing the judgment, everybody is receiving judgment, everybody is afraid examining his life, it then goes to show that God has halted this move long ago and yet we do not know. May be God brought the whole Church together to judge them together. Then to number people that will go.
38.        Maybe, maybe! Because He told us that judgment must start in God’s house. If the righteous can scarcely be saved, what then will be the fate of them that believe not? I said, maybe, God being the God of replacement, maybe He had already replaced many people and we do not know. And we are rejoicing that we are seeing new, new faces in our midst, not knowing that God brought them from here and there to come and occupy the positions vacated by others.
39.        Maybe, no wonder St. Paul was saying, “Make sure that no man taketh away your crown.” Be very careful that no man takes away your own crown. Be careful to make your calling and election stand sure. Be careful!
40.        In James chapter 4 verse 4, when any man wants to make a friend of the world, he becomes God’s own enemy. That is the word of God. People want to become friend of the world, because the love of God is no longer in their hearts. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
41.        James 4 verse 4, “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?”
42.        See exactly the word God used in describing a people: adulterers and adulteresses. God knows that it will require adulterers and adulteresses to love the world. When a man loves the world, it manifests itself in number one sin which is fornication and adultery, immorality.
43.        No ye not, you that want to lust after the world, don’t you know that when you lust after the world, the love of the Father will no longer be in you?
44.        When the love of God is not in a man, or in a woman, what will be the hope of that person? I wonder if that will not be the end of the pligrim race of that person.
45.        We know very well that God knows more than a man. Many a times we try to nourish this flesh, to give the flesh what it desires. Fornication is sin in the flesh. People that lust after evil things; they want to nourish the flesh.
46.        Can you just imagine a man saying, “After romancing, I got satisfied. I love romancing, after romancing, I was satisfied.” What was he satisfying? Was it not the flesh and the lust thereof?
47.        And then, five minutes enjoyment will put you into five years sorrow, it will even cut you off from everlasting life. You see, breaking God’s word has cost him his everlasting life.
48.        Only five minutes enjoyment with a prostitute has caused this man eternity, everlasting life. Five minutes enjoyment, satisfying the flesh. If a child of God will know that there is no gain in sexual intercourse, there is no gain in forsaking God’s word, if somebody can just sit down and cast his mind back, “While I was in the world, I was just a wretched sinner, what did I gain? When I was making love to every lady on the street, speaking anyhow, drinking and smoking, what did I gain?”
49.        NO MAN CAN GO BACK INTO SIN WITHOUT FIRST OF ALL REGRETTING HIS PLIGRIM RACE. When you regret following God, you will go back into sin. It will require somebody that has regretted Christianity, regretted been a child of God; it requires that man or that woman to go back into sin. What do I gain after all these things?
50.        In short, while others are going this way, let me just go and follow them, at least, let me do it a little. You are already regretting following Christ. And then Christ is regretting calling you my convert. When you say that you are not following Him again, God will do away with you and bring in another person.
51.        When Judas got satisfied and went away, God brought in Mathias. Let’s be very careful brethren. The present stage of the ministry calls for diligence, the present stage of the ministry calls for carefulness, the present condition of the Church is not good, it is a horrible one, it is a fearful one, unless somebody is blind in the spirit.
52.        I say this as a servant of God. I do not intend to put fear in you, I do not intend to accuse anybody. I want to tell you the naked truth in my family because I want all of you to follow me there.
53.        I will never hide anything here. Nevertheless, he that has purposed to perish must perish. I will never be guilty of withholding anything from you. The Lord has told us to go home and keep watch over our families. If anyone wants to follow the head of the family like the two daughters of Lot followed him, let them follow him.
54.        Like the family of Noah followed him, let them follow him. But, where they do not want to go, let them stay. Lot did not withhold the truth from his wife. Noah did not withhold the truth from his relations.
55.        Galatian chapter 5 verse 16, “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh…”
56.        It means that all that were fulfilling the lust of the flesh, they never walked in the spirit one day, they were all carnal, walking carnally, walking in the flesh. The Bible is saying that we should walk in the spirit.
57.        What is walking in the spirit? The word I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life. Walk by the leading of the word of God. Allow the word of God to dwell in you richly with all wisdom. And you will not satisfy the lust of the flesh.
58.        Walk in the spirit, for there is no condemnation to them that are in Christ, who do not walk after the flesh, but after the spirit. Is it not the word of God? Walk in the spirit, you can never satisfy the lust of the flesh. Never, never, never. Because the flesh is in enmity with the spirit.
59.        Verse 17, “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.” KJV.
60.        You see, as long as one is walking in the spirit, he can never give the flesh what the flesh wants. Because he knows very well that the flesh is warring against the soul, that by the deeds of the flesh, no man is saved. Do not you know that?
61.        Why then do you nourish the flesh? Why do you want to satisfy the flesh? Whatever the flesh demands from you, you just give it anyhow carnally. Do not walk carnally, walk in the spirit. This is the secret of getting away from lust.
62.        You see, Satan knows that we cannot go and commit fornication openly, but he can just anoint somebody with that spirit and the person will be lusting. When you see a woman, she will be lusting, you see a man, he will be lusting. Amen.
63.        On this note, I say remain in your sanctified estate, remain blessed in Him eternally. Selah.
