MARRIAGE IS FOR BETTER FOR BEST


the son of man
MARRIAGE IS A RELIEF AND NOT A BURDEN. AND I TOLD YOU, MARRIAGE IS ENJOYED AND NOT ENDURED. THAT IS WHY BOYS ARE PROHIBITED FROM DREAMING ABOUT MARRIAGE. BOYS DO NOT EVEN DREAM ABOUT MARRIAGE. 

Keep your dream to yourself. Go for reality, do not go for dreams. You have no right to mention anything marriage until [1] you are capable, [2] you have the capacity, [3] you are credible enough, [4] the
intelligence to man a family is there. This is so that you can acknowledge the responsibilities that belong to you and to nobody else.




MARRIAGE IS FOR BETTER FOR BEST

PREACHED BY APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA (THE SON OFMAN)AT THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD ONITSHA ON SUNDAY 17TH FEBRUARY 2019


IF I SHOULD USE YOU AS THE STANDARD FOR JUDGMENT, IT THEN MEANS NOBODY WILL BE SAVED. WOE IS ME IF I SHOULD USE YOU. BUT I WILL PLACE YOUR RECORDS BEFORE YOU SO THAT WHEN YOU WILL BE CONDEMNED AT THE END, YOU WILL KNOW YOU WERE CONDEMNED BEFORE YOU GET TO THE END...

CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED(BUILDING A PEACEFUL HOME) VOLUME 1; Preached on Sunday 13th May, 2018; Pg. 44 vs. 57

THE BRIDGE TO PEACE

1.          You are blessed everybody. Let the Teacher that was announced be here. I am here just for a while. So you better come up. I would not waste your time.
2.          If you hear your name, at the end of the Fellowship, go and collect your I.D card and make sure you pay them. I do not know the conditions, but they will tell you.
3.          Listen to your names as I have them here. Whether you are in Onitsha or elsewhere, if after today you did not hear your name, know that you are not included in this first batch.
4.          If before or now, you heard your name, you went to collect your own and it was seized, it was withheld, bear with Me. Look into your life. Try to correct whatever might be the imbalance.
5.          To the rest of you who might be desiring identity card from this Ministry, I will assign the responsibility to your Pastors. He knows you more than I know you.
6.          If he is satisfied with your performance, with your faithfulness and loyalty to the Faith, he will issue you one with a different colour bearing his own name, for he will be held accountable by whosoever.
7.          I do not care. Even the Almighty will hold him accountable. And it must bear the [name of the] Local Assembly where you belong to.
8.          But all that have collected and those that will collect today, you look at your own, you do not belong to any Local Assembly. There is no Local Assembly that is inscribed in your own. YOU ARE A FREE RADICAL. I SAY, “YOU ARE A FREE RADICAL”.
9.          You turn to the back, you see what is documented there. Should there be anything information that is required about the holder, all references should go to the Son of Man and to no one else.
10.      I am the One that will speak on behalf of all that are holding the one I endorsed with My signature and then with My Seal. They do not belong to any Local Assembly.
11.      Before I call these names, I wish to announce to you, I went outside and I saw a face I will not like to lose and I judged her before many witnesses.
12.      So, Bro. Chizoba at the end of the Fellowship, invite her, find out her surname, not Tobechukwu and not Emefue. Use her maiden name, prepare one I.D card and present to Me for signing. Amen.
13.      I was glad. I saw her and I had witnesses around Me confirming that she has been coming for some time now. I never saw her for one day, but you are My witnesses that I have been calling her name and asking questions.
14.      I even pointed all of you to a particular Message where everything about her, from the beginning when they were living at Fegge [I never knew where they were living] to the time they took refuge in My house at Benjamin.
15.      Everything about her marriage, the role I played and others, and what led to her problems, they are there. The end of the dispute, the marital conflict, the end is also there. So for that reason, I am the happiest today, for My conscience has set Me free.
16.      Pay attention! IF YOU KNOW THE TRUTH AND WITHHOLD IT, YOU CAUSE AN INNOCENT FELLOW TO BE PUNISHED. THE BLOOD OF THE PERSON WILL BE REQUIRED OF YOU.
17.      So this day, like I told you when I announced her release, God will no longer require her blood from My hand.
18.       In terms of suffering, she has suffered with us, toiled with us and I verified from all. She never, for one day, committed fornication by joining herself to any denomination since she left. So, it will be an act of wickedness to ignore her outside and attribute it to over sight. 
19.      There is nothing like over sight as far as I am concerned. No matter where you are, My eyes must catch you. So, Sister Ngozi, you were restored long ago. You were pardoned and set free long ago. Go back to your seat. Worship your God according to the revelation you have. 
20.      It is worthy of note that Bro. Goddy Emefue, now Tobechukwu, was not responsible for her conversion to the Faith. She was in the Faith, Goddy met her in the Faith in the Endtime. I equally met her in the Faith.
21.      In fact, if we are to judge from End-time, she is senior to Me, to my wife and to many of you. She is senior to Pastor Dan and senior to many here. And have remained.
22.      If she wanted to abandon this Faith, there was a time she suffered ex-communication for over one year. That would have been enough reason for her to abandon the Faith. 
23.      There was a time she went to Aba where she sojourned with her mother for almost two years. Nobody was inquiring about her. Yet, she never abandoned the faith. You know where the trouble lies Just as I was talking to some Elders in My house and that should be precisely on Thursday. The same way I spoke to the youths when I went to post office. I sat down with them for over two hours in our office there and they heard My Voice.
24.      Please I want to warn you. No matter how friendly you are with Me, if you notice that I am quarreling with Brother Sunday of Opi and Brother Sunday committed no crime against you, do not ever join Me to hate Brother Sunday.
25.      Whatever I may have as My grouse, I should go and settle it with Bro. Sunday not with you. So, it is an evil act, because of carnal friendship, you join forces with your evil friends because you agree in evil to hate somebody without a cause. It is evil and it is found among many of you.
26.      This is the origin of gossip, “Why mingling with this fellow?” Why should I not mingle with him? Why should I not mingle with her?
27.      If you have a problem with him or her, go and settle it. As for me, I have nothing standing between Me and that person. So I can never join you. 
28.      I know many of you are in sympathy with Goddy, even when you know the truth. Many of you here are in sympathy with Goddy Tobechukwu, even when you know the truth.
29.      If Goddy wants to worship God, it is now. If Sister Ngozi wants to worship God, it is now. Then we will know who the unbeliever is. But talk of that marriage, put a hold on that marriage.
30.      There are too many that are worse than that. I wish to restate it again. It is an abomination before God and before humanity for a woman that is married, living in marriage, staying in marriage;
31.      One thing is to live in marriage, another is to stay in marriage. You can stay in marriage without living in marriage. You can live in marriage but not staying in marriage. 
32.      IT IS EASIER TO FALL IN LOVE THAN TO STAY IN LOVE. YOU CAN FALL IN LOVE WITHOUT STAYING IN LOVE. TRUE OR FALSE?
33.      All that got married, at the first instance, they fell in love, but along the way, they could not stay in love. True or false? Is it not the genesis of the problem everywhere?
34.      You married Me in love with either party professing, “I love you. I love you. You are the sugar in My tea, apple in My eyes and the only indispensable material I have on earth”, all to seduce one’s heart. But after that, continue, let us see.
35.      What am I saying? It is an abomination before God, before humanity, before the Son of Man; [whether I am devil or God, I do not care. That is your own cup of tea. I am what you think I am. And that is what I am to you finish.]
36.      IT IS AN ABOMINATION, UNACCEPTABLE IN THE SIGHT OF GOD FOR A WOMAN THAT IS STAYING IN MARRIAGE, LIVING IN MARRIAGE TO GO AND BORROW MONEY TO SPONSOR THE CHILDREN WITHOUT THE HUSBAND’S CONSENT.
37.      IN FACT, NO MARRIED WOMAN SHOULD BORROW A DIME. A WOMAN IS PROHIBITED FROM BORROWING MONEY, BORROWING MATERIAL OF ANY SORT.
38.      IF THERE IS A NEED IN THE FAMILY AND THE RESOURCES OF THE MAN AND HIS WIFE CANNOT SOLVE THAT NEED, THE RESPONSIBILITY LIES ON THE MAN TO GO OUT AND SCOUT FOR MONEY, FOR IT IS EASIER TO LISTEN TO A MAN ON MONETARY ISSUES THAN TO LISTEN TO A WOMAN.
39.      IF A WOMAN SHOULD BORROW MONEY FROM YOU, WHO WILL REPAY? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO TELL THE HUSBAND?
40.      HOW CAN SHE DEFEND THAT SHE BORROWED MONEY TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR CHILDREN, TO FEED YOU, TO PAY FOR THEIR RENT, TO PAY FOR THEIR SCHOOL FEES WHEN YOU ARE ALIVE?
41.      IF ANYBODY SHOULD GO A BORROWING, IT SHOULD BE THE MAN. THE WOMAN CAN HELP HIM TO PAY. BUT WHO IS THE DEBTOR? IT MUST BE THE MAN.
42.      Look at how embarrassing it sounds for somebody to stop Me on the way and say, “Sir, I have been respecting you all these while. Your wife is owing Me N150,000.”
43.      “Sir, it is because I am respecting you. I do not want to embarrass you. Your wife borrowed N50,000 from me for two years now and she has not paid.”
44.      EVEN IN PURCHASING OF ITEMS, A WOMAN THAT IS LIVING IN MARRIAGE, STAYING IN MARRIAGE IS PERMITTED TO DO CREDIT PURCHASING ON THE AUTHORITY OF THE HUSBAND.
45.      AND SHE DOES NOT PRESENT HERSELF. SHE PRESENTS HER HUSBAND. FOR THE HUSBAND MUST BE HELD LIABLE.
46.      You can recover money you lend to people anyhow, but not money you lend to a woman. It is like dashing your girlfriend or woman-friend money. And whoever that hears about it will not respect you.
47.      WHO SHOULD GO A BORROWING TO SUSTAIN THE FAMILY? IT IS THE MAN! WHO SHOULD AUTHORIZE CREDIT PURCHASE? IT IS THE MAN!
48.      THIS IS BECAUSE ALL FINANCIAL EXPENSES MUST REST ON THE MAN. THE WOMAN CAN GIVE A HELPING HAND BY GIVING HER MITE TO REPAY THE LOAN.
49.      Remember, when I spoke to you on this delicate issue, I made it clear that whoever goes for a loan or goes a borrowing, reveals his secret before he can be considered for the loan. True or false?
50.      You cannot just come to Me and say “Brother, give Me N10,000” without telling Me what you want to do with it.
51.      And there are certain things you will disclose being a married woman and you have written your husband off. I hope you are hearing me? I may sound stupid. I may sound foolish.
52.      LOAN IS ONLY CONSIDERED TO BE LOAN IF A MAN GOES FOR IT. THE ONLY PERSON THAT IS PERMITTED BECAUSE SHE IS ON HER OWN TO GO FOR DIRECT LOAN IS, (1) A DIVORCEE, (2) AN UNMARRIED WOMAN (3) A WIDOW.
53.      Not one that is living under a roof with the same husband whether he be rich or poor. Her responsibilities must be shouldered by the husband.
54.      Even if he does not have the wherewithal, he knows how to go for it. It is much more honourable for a man to go a borrowing to sustain himself and his family than for a woman to sell off the shame to go for such a silly thing.
55.      I just want to put you in remembrance. Whoever among you, man or woman, that is going contrary, is fueling rebellion. You are fueling crisis. You are fueling rebellion. You better understand this fact. I am of the opinion and I still maintain it.

MARRIAGE MEANS
FOR BETTER, FOR BEST

1.          Go back to My messages MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE VOLUMES 1,2,3. The printout we had yesterday, we saw too many people that rushed to those Messages.
2.          Let Me tell you what I believe in marriage. Remember, I have to tell you the naked truth.
3.          I have searched the whole Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation and I have never come across a Scripture or a passage, a verse, or anything suggesting the useless untrue gospel that is peddled by weak people.
4.          Search your Scriptures. Search history. You will never see any verse, any chapter, anything suggesting. “Until death do us part.” It is never documented in the Bible.
5.          I have been challenging you all these years. When I handled MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE. You can never see “for better, for worse.” It is not documented.
6.          These are mere insinuations. These are mere religious dogmatic statements. Often times, irreligious people quote, ungodly people quote to make sure they shy away from their God-given responsibilities.
7.          The Bible said, “Once a woman is married, all her desires must be upon her own husband and he must bear rule over her in all things, not minus.[Genesis 3:16]
8.          Now, what is marriage? MARRIAGE MEANS FOR BETTER, FOR BEST. “MARRIAGE MEANS, FOR BETTER, FOR BEST”.
9.          My daughter is in My house managing with whatever I can dole out to her, although she is feeling good. I hope you are hearing me?
10.      While making a choice of a husband, she will choose a better background at least, a move away from where she is coming from, for there is no need jumping from frying pan to fire. Impossible!
11.      No man is given a choice and he chooses hardship. A woman marries to better her lot, to relieve her of some burdens which her parents could not relieve because there are many that are being attended to.
12.      MARRIAGE IS A RELIEF AND NOT A BURDEN. AND I TOLD YOU, MARRIAGE IS ENJOYED AND NOT ENDURED. THAT IS WHY BOYS ARE PROHIBITED FROM DREAMING ABOUT MARRIAGE. BOYS DO NOT EVEN DREAM ABOUT MARRIAGE.
13.      Keep your dream to yourself. Go for reality, do not go for dreams. You have no right to mention anything marriage until [1] you are capable, [2] you have the capacity, [3] you are credible enough, [4] The intelligence to man a family must be there.
14.      This is so that you can acknowledge the responsibilities that belong to you and to nobody else.
15.      PAY ATTENTION! I BELIEVE, AND THAT IS THE TRUTH, AND THAT IS SCRIPTURE. MARRIAGE IS A MYSTERY, BETTER TO BEST. IT IS GOOD IN MY HOUSE, BETTER IN HER MATRIMONIAL HOME AND AS THE TWO JOIN TOGETHER AND MOVE FORWARD, THEY WILL ATTAIN THE BEST. TRUE OR FALSE? WHY NOT PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER?
16.      This is pure truth. If you do not have this concept registered in your conscience, you lose the vision of what marriage is all about. A man must have that vision:
17.      That you married when you did not have a vehicle. Now, from that stage, you can go to bicycle or motorcycle or keke. An adage says that one that bought goat has made a promise to buy a cow.
18.      Before you know it, you are now holding a steering with your wife in front and you being the driver. I mean, from tenant to landlord. These are promotions.
19.      If it is not so, marriage is useless. I said, “absolutely useless”.  “Absolutely useless”.
20.      That is why before you make a choice of a man, make sure you do not chose a man you will sponsor, for you cannot sponsor a man beyond your capacity.
21.      A woman that is marrying a man, no matter the reason, and you discover that the man is coming to you because he sees you as one that will take over the responsibility, better withdraw. I said “better withdraw”.
22.      A WOMAN CONTRIBUTES NOTHING TO HER MARRIAGE BUT SHE CONTRIBUTES A LOT TO HER HOME. IT MUST BE MARRIAGE BEFORE A HOME. MARRIAGE BEFORE A HOME. YOU MARRIED ME. THEN, TWO OF US WILL NOW BUILD A HOME.
23.      I do not know why I am going this way but please bear with Me. You see, in this life, let us face the reality. MARRIAGE IS ENJOYED AND NOT ENDURED.
24.      God said, “Any marriage that is endured is no marriage. It is no marriage. It is a boyfriend-girlfriend affair.”“If he says we will be in peace, we will be in peace. If he says we should break, we will break up.”A man is on his own. The wife is on her own.
25.      Do you know that the Bible placed a curse, a perpetual curse on a man who said he is married and cannot take care of his own family that he is worse than an “INFIDEL” [1 Timothy 5:8]
26.      Let somebody give Me the dictionary meaning of INFIDEL. Give Me Webster Dictionary from your handset. I want to have that meaning of INFIDEL. Somebody read it. I need the dictionary meaning from your handset. Give him microphone if he finds the meaning.
27.      So, if you say you are a married man, you have a wife, you have children, you are living in your house, but you cannot pay your rent, you cannot provide food, you cannot pay school fees, you cannot clothe your children, what are you then?
28.      What makes you a husband? What makes for a husband is not penis. What makes for a husband is not wearing trousers. Women wear trousers.
29.      Hear Me well. I pity women. I pity men also who lack the truth. Truth is scarce in them. I have never seen FOR BETTER, FOR WORSE or TILL DEATH DO US PART. You cannot see it.
30.      Rather, what you will see is “LET THE UNBELIEVING PATNER DEPART”. And the brother or sister is not under obligation. [1 Corinthians 7:15 KJV] Another translation says; either party can remarry. “Either party can remarry”.
31.      AND MARRIAGE IS NOT MARRIAGE UNTIL YOU HAVE MARRIED ONE THAT WILL MAKE YOU TO HEAVE A SIGH OF RELIEF, THE BONE OF YOUR BONE, THE FLESH OF YOUR FLESH, THE SPIRIT OF YOUR SPIRIT, THE SOUL OF YOUR SOUL, THE BLOOD OF YOUR BLOOD.
32.      YOU ARE NOT MARRIED UNTIL YOU MARRY ONE THAT FITS INTO YOUR DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS. ONLY THEN WILL YOU HEAVE A SIGH OF RELIEF AND REST.
33.      Now, look at the interpretation. Assuming you are a lazy man who does not have any future. You do not want to strive.
34.      Your dream will not be accomplished until you marry a millionaire woman who will take care of your rent, clothe you, take care of your children, do everything, even take care of your extended family problems. Then you heave a sigh of relief.
35.      What makes you a man? Is it mounting on a woman and impregnating her? So, you are a man? YOU ARE A SISSIFIED MAN! You are like a human being. What do I call that man? A goat with human face. A GOAT WITH HUMAN FACE.
36.      Truth must come out whether we like it or not. In many ways, we deny the Faith. True or false? In many ways, we deny our Faith.
37.      Even if you are idle, the moment you marry, you know you have a responsibility. You break loose. A man must be versatile.
38.      A man should not be ashamed of doing the right thing provided it will help him take care of his family. The only thing you should be ashamed of doing is stealing, duping and fraudulent things.
39.      And you know, being a married man, you should not indulge in them, for they will affect your family, affect your children adversely. Yes!
40.      An adage says that it is what a hen did during the dry season that causes the death of its chicks during the rainy season.
41.      When I look at the complaints that come to Me and where they are coming from, the truth is evidently there that too many Brothers roped some Sisters with deceit into marriage.
42.      You hear Me say this: Instead of dragging my feet along on the ground while someone is claiming to carry me on the back, I prefer to walk on my two feet.
43.      How can you marry My daughter and her condition in your house becomes worse than it was in My house? No, no, no, no!
44.      And I gave you charge. The evidence that you are married to a Sister as a wife is that within 3 months of the marriage, 3 months after the contractual agreement of the marriage, you must remove all her old dresses and put her in new, new dresses that will meet your own desire.
45.      This is because, whatever picture you want your wife to assume, that is what she will assume and you are the one to clothe her.
46.      She cannot answer madam with the same clothes she was using in My house before she got married. Never! How can a woman continue with the apparels she used as a spinster, even after she is married? Is it done? Never! I hope you know what I am saying?
47.      There must be a difference between a woman that is comfortably seated on a dining table, eating from the same plate with her husband. There is a difference.
48.      That is why they normally add weight within the shortest period, for they eat bigger and they enjoy it more than any other thing.
49.      You cannot take one lump of meat in My house and go to your husband and be dividing small thing into pieces like capsules and M&B paracetamol tablet. NO!
50.      If she takes one lump of meat in My house, in your house she should be taking four. She will be unrestricted, for she is in the kitchen; she is in the parlour; she is everywhere and she decides.
51.      A WOMAN THAT CANNOT PREPARE HER CHOICE OF FOOD IS NOT MARRIED. This is because it is the woman that determines the choice of food, the type of soup, Garri, Semovita and everything.
52.      The man is only the chop chop. Is there any food you give to the man that is bad? But while she [my daughter] is in My house, she cannot try it. My wife has the final say.



WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH.  YOU MUST HAVE A VISION OF TOMORROW, HAVE A VISION CONCERNING YOUR FUTURE AND HAVE A VISION OF WHAT YOU WILL LIKE TO BE AND WHY YOU WILL LIKE TO BE THAT THING. YOU MUST HAVE A VISION OF WHAT YOU WILL LIKE TO BE REMEMBERED FOR AND ALSO HOW TO WORK TOWARDS ACHIEVING IT HONESTLY AND NOT DISHONESTLY. GOD WILL ALWAYS BLESS AN HONEST WORKER BUT HE IS DISPLEASED IN A DISHONEST WORKER, A LAZY FELLOW, A MAN WITHOUT VISION.
REPOSITIONING YOURSELF FOR ABETTER TOMORROW Pg. 98 vs. 44

REPOSITIONING YOURSELF FOR A BETTER TOMORROW

1.          So, if you cannot permit your wife to be liberal with the kitchen and prepare according to her choice, that goes to show that you have no capacity to marry. You have no capacity. You are not a capable husband. You lack credibility and you also lack intelligence.
2.          This is because, if the intelligence is there, that which will make you to cover your face in shame, you will try to avoid. I wonder, while I am alive, My sons will go to My wife for school fees.NO!
3.          Whenever they have their request, they normally share them into two. They will put domestic and then write personal needs. Domestic goes to their mother, while personal needs goes to me.
4.          Then at the end of the day, their mother will bring domestic needs also to Me, “Daddy, look at what your children have submitted”. I will say,“Ok, I knew they will submit it.”
5.          The reason why they share it is because their mother will go to market for the domestic needs.I will provide money for the personal, and will also assume responsibility for some bulk purchases.
6.          I told you here using My life from childhood. Since 1988 I got married till now, My wife, if she has priced anything yam tuber, not that it is not in the house, but maybe there is a special one she wants to use privately.
7.          She does not know how much a bag of rice costs. She does not even price beans. Neither does she price a bag of crayfish.
8.          For I told you the secret of running a home successfully lies in bulk purchases. The man assumes responsibility of the bulk purchase and allows the woman to be buying all those minor ones.
9.          But a man that does not provide for the bulk purchases, he does not provide for the minor purchases, which one are you providing?
10.      Some will even say a woman’s money is for domestic use, while that of the man is for capital project, but from year to year, no evidence of capital project. “No evidence”.
11.      A MAN WHO IS ALIVE AND THE WOMAN IS BORROWING MONEY TO PAY RENT, PAY SCHOOL FEES, THE MAN IS A FUCKUP! THAT MAN IS A FUCKUP! REAL FUCKUP”.WILL SOMEBODY DIE IF WE SAY IT? THE MAN IS A FUCKUP! THIS IS PURE TRUTH.
12.      I know why I am saying it. I gave you My life history of how I took off. I started My salary with ninety-nine naira [N99.00] and I never borrowed a dime from anybody till today.
13.      How many graduates have I raised before I left the service? When I left the service, was I idle? I removed suit, removed shoes and everything, and then went for apprenticeship.
14.      Before then, I gave you a message titled REPROSITIONING YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILIES FOR A BETTER TOMORROW. And I led by example by repositioning myself.What are we saying?Who is fooling who?
15.      If you are borrowing money to send your children back to school after 4 months strike, you are not qualified to train one, even in a primary school.
16.      It then meansyou usedthe four months to idle away your time. Even if you are saving N5,000 a month, in 4 months, you must have saved a little.
17.      The strike gave families a little moment of rest,time to regroup and reorganize, knowing that once it is called off, students will be recalled.
18.      And then you folded your arms, continued drinking from one beer parlour to another, eating fish, eating meat, enjoying life, and when school reopens,you will be running helter skelter as if they never gave you enough notice.
19.      Maybe you do not want them to go back to school and you are merely suppressing it.
20.      REFUSING YOUR CHILDREN FROM GOING TO SCHOOL IN THIS DYNAMIC AGE IS A CRIMINAL ACT. REFUSING YOUR CHILDREN QUALITATIVE EDUCATION IN THIS DYNAMIC AGE, IT IS A CRIMINAL ACT, AN UNPARDONABLE SI.
21.      YOUR CHILDREN CAN NEVER PARDON YOU IN THIS WORLD NOR IN THE WORLD TO COME. WHAT IS THE PRIDE OF HAVING PARENTS? WHAT IS THE JOY OF HAVING PARENTS? IF THE JOY IS NOT THERE, IT THEN MEANS PARENTS ARE NOT THERE.
22.      If the only way your impact can be felt is when you are howling, ranting, making a great noise, demonstrating unnecessarily over food you never provided and that is when your influence will be felt, of all men, you should be avoided with all malice.
23.      If you know such people, avoid them. Otherwise, they will contaminate you. Yes! [Romans 16:17]For their conversations are weak; Very weak!
24.      They take delight in discussing politics and world events. They can hardly sit down, organize themselves and know whether there are other areas that are not yet exploited. Yes!
25.      I am of the opinion that we have not yet exploited all the avenues God has already created for us to survive. Are you hearing me? It depends on the way you look at life.
26.      Must all of us do white collar jobs? Am I doing white collar job now? I did it. I left it. I joined the populace and I found My way also. You can also find your way. This is true. It depends on your vision and then your determination to succeed. Amen. A MAN CAN RECREATE HIMSELF. 
27.      I will give you one example. Bro. I.K [Ezindu] stand up there. I met you at Aba as an okada rider. With your school certificate, you made efforts to go to university, but no way.
28.      I approached you and demanded to know why you yoked yourself in marriage when you had no reasonable occupation. You are very industrious.
29.      Now, I am recreating you. Follow Me. He followed Me. I took him to My hometown,away from Ngwa, with nothing but knowledge of okada.
30.      I told him, “We are going to steal technology, for I have seen you having some talents that need to be developed.”
31.      Today, how many professions are you an expert in? Can you name them?[Bro. IK said, “No sir!”]Did you learn anything from anywhere? [Bro. IK said, “No sir!”] Did you pay a kobo?[Bro. IK said, “No sir!”]Stolen technology!
32.      For his sake, I invited people from Sierra-Leone. I invited people from Anambra here who taught him carpentry. Sierra-Leoneans taught him P.O.P [Plaster of Paris].
33.      I brought one man from Uzo-Uwani who taught him profile roofing and everything. I attached him to a first class brick layer. He learnt bricklaying [block moulding].
34.      Now, he is a welder. We have stolen interlocking. He does interlocking, all
perfect right now. Sit down!
35.      Bro. John! I investigated. You were responsible for your woes.  You were the one that ordered the company to supply you roofing sheets. I remember what transpired.
36.      You were the one that said that the company must hang it. IK only assisted. The company that supplied did the hanging. IK was only assisting.
37.      And because the weight was on the company, you paid them, you hired their services, they could not listen to IK. That was why I am still wondering over your report.
38.      So, give the right report for I can stand and tell you not less than nine places where IK hanged steep tiles without dropping water including that of your own[pointing to Apostle Ojiakor who confirmed it to be true]Thank you!And My own also. So, sit down.
39.      Do notspoil your wayand try to look for excuse where there is no excuse. I know the time you had disagreement just like Chinedu who is here.
40.      He is suffering today because of his own personal mistake. He has acknowledged it. When you sent away somebody who knows the job because he did not go to university, you hired an armchair Engineer.
41.      That was why even to deck your house, your house nearly collapsed because I.K did everything to deck your house, but you brought one mixer, brought engineer, brought caterpillar that will be doing the thing and they pulled the thing down, created another work for him and you could not put into consideration that he [I.K] has been doing that work over the years.
42.      Their technology made the work that would have lasted for one day to last for three days, and even more expensive.
43.      If you are hiring people because they are graduate engineers, remember they are armchair engineers. This is true!
44.      Bro. Chinedu hired one from Eha-Alumona and drove Bro. I.K away. When I got there, they built trash. What you are seeing today, I went with Pastor Thomas, knocked down everywhere and the man ran mad.
45.      The father [of Bro Chinedu] was there justifying everything I was doing. I destroyed too many areas. He said, “Sir, that is the plan Chinedu gave me.”
46.      I said, “Are you stupid? Has he any other land outside this? I laid the foundation. Why building this trash?” He said, “Sir, now that you have destroyed what I built, I will dance to your tune but who will pay me?”
47.      Then I said, “Ok, do the right thing. Even if you are not paid, this building is an edifice located along the road. The cynosure of all eyes. Why not justify that word Engineer?”
48.      Well, that is why I stand here to be the best of all Production Engineers that never went to any school to learn it. Any production engine or machine I cannot ignite does not exist. Even those without manuals. But you must pay Me first. Down payment, stand there and watch what I will do.
49.      It is for your sake that I limited myself so that I will have a little time for rest and for the Ministry.  Otherwise, you know that I am hot cake. Will you buy My services? You have nothing to pay.
50.      Those that know My worth are still clamouring for it every day and I work at My own pace. That is why it surprises them. They do not know where to place me.
51.      So, we have versatile talented Brethren. If you happen to come in contact with them, make good use of their services.
52.      Number one is that you pay them for one aspect of the job, but with the same money, they will do many aspects, all in the name of brotherhood, if only you can appreciate it.
53.      But we know ourselves. Once we have money we can only appreciate anything that is expensive so that we can say that it is Impresit Bakolori®or Julius Berger® that did it or Dumez® that did the construction.
54.      That is what we will like to have. We will even like them to hang their signboard on our roof, “IMPRESIT BAKOLORI®PLC.”

We know that The Son of Man has appeared and has given us the spirit to understand the truth and we are in him that is true, even in The Son of Man, this is the true god that holds the eternal life. You must know the true God, differentiate between the true god and the false God and that is eternal life. But many do not know that he has appeared or he has been here, because it is not a noise-making ministry. He cannot quench a burning flax. Neither will you hear his voice on the street.

ETERNAL LIFE IS NOT NEGOTIABLE

1.          I am talking of this marriage of a thing which is the foundation of life and the foundation of peace.
2.          ONCE YOUR FAMILY IS DEVOID OF WHAT SHOULD ESTABLISH A FAMILY, WHATEVER THAT IS PEACE THERE IS RUBBISH. IT IS NO PEACE. IT IS MERE SUPPRESSION OF FEELINGS.
3.          Is there peace in a family where there is suppression of feelings? Who is fooling who? If you say you are a fool, know that there is nobody who goes to bed hungry that ever sleeps.
4.          Another thing is this: Denial of one’s rights and privileges does not allow the person to sleep. Nobody sleeps in the face of intimidation and denial of rights and privileges.
5.          If you say you can sleep when you are denied your rights and privileges, let Me inflict that denial on you and see if you can sleep. Intimidation does not permit sleep.
6.          You will keep asking, “Why did he do this thing to me? Is this person really my friend?” You may be persuaded to forfeit the money that it is a small amount of money. Is there anything like small money?
7.          I have seen money but I have never seen anything small money. If you know that small money, remove it from the bundle, and then go and pay it into the bank. Tell them, “I removed small.”
8.          I want the definition of infidel. That is where I stopped. Infidel. Pay attention.
9.          INFIDEL: A person who does not believe in a religion that someone regards as true religion.
10.      [1] A PERSON WHO IS A HYPOCRITE. [2] HE IS IN THE MIDST OF PEOPLE PROFESSING A FAITH THAT IS ACCLAIMED TO BE TRUTH, BUT HE DOES NOT MANIFEST IT. HE IS WHAT? AN INFIDEL.
11.      Full definition of INFIDEL: (1) one who is not a Christian...ONE WHO IS NOT A CHILD OF GOD. ...or who opposes children of God. OR WHO OPPOSES CHILDREN OF GOD. HE OPPOSES TRUTH.
12.      (2) An unbeliever with respect to a particular religion.
13.      AN UNBELIEVER WITH RESPECT TO A PARTICULAR FAITH, LIKE WE ARE IN THE FAITH OF CHRIST (BRIDE OF CHRIST MINISTRY WORLDWIDE) And the person is shouting Amen, Yes! Stamp it harder! Yet, he does not believe it.
14.      (3) A disbeliever in something specified or understood. LIKE I HAVE SPECIFIED, MADE IT CLEAR TO ALL AND SUNDRY WHAT MARRIAGE IS ALL ABOUT AND YOU SAY YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IT.
15.      With this dictionary meaning, you can go home, ask yourself what we believe in the Bride as a standard for our family life. EXAMINE YOUR FAMILY LIFE. Is it in conformity with the Faith?
16.      Man and woman, EXAMINE YOUR FAMILY RELATIONSHIP. Are they not Messages we received? Family life. Family relationship. Family order.
17.      Then WHO IS IN-CHARGE OF YOUR FAMILY? You or your wife? Or your children? Or your in-laws? Or your friends? The public or the devil? Amen.
18.      I never intended to go that way. It was this I.D card of a thing and the restoration of our Sister Ngozi. Ngozi! What is your surname? “Ngozi Adibe.”  Very good! Sit down.
19.      Trailing behind your mates brings shame to an individual. It is shameful for one not to be measuring up with his mates. Anybody that does not have the feeling of shame does not progress.
20.      It is a shame to one that is not keeping pace with his mates. It is shame that will cause you to react like a human being and do what you are supposed to do.
21.      Bear with me, I never meant to go that way, but of a necessity, I should. I say, I should.
22.      These people should go for their I.D cards. If for any reason at all, you received a note from our Pastor Chizoba asking for your particulars, your biometric particulars, and you did not submit within the time frame, as at two weeks ago, I placed a ban, a blanket ban. He will not receive it again.
23.      So, do not trouble him. There is only but one he will receive, and that is that of Sister Ngozi Adibe.
24.      You talk of the children, “What will be their fate?” I know that may be agitating the hearts of many. In no distant time, Sister Ngozi will be a grandmother.
25.      The son is Abraham, the first son. He is here. Thank God you are here today. Very good. He is married.
26.      By God’s grace, any time from now, you will be blessed with a child. I know how I pleaded with the family to reconcile and give him a backing, but now the damage has been done.  I say, “the damage has been done”.
27.      What is their condition? Their condition is nothing but what they want it to be. If they can convince their mother, and convince their father to stay together as husband and wife, they will have a home.
28.      But when they do not want, they can part ways. Anyone that wants to stay with the mother, go. The one that wants to stay with the father, go. Finish!
29.      In the kingdom of God, we are not here for husband and wife. In Heaven, in paradise, no husband and wife.
30.      WHICH ONE DO I APPROVE? ANYWHERE YOU KNOW YOU CAN STAY AND MAKE ETERNAL LIFE, STAY THERE. FINISH! THE WORST PLACE YOU CAN STAY IS THAT PLACE THAT WILL NOT HELP YOU TO GET ETERNAL LIFE.
31.      IF IT MEANS GOING TO PRISON TO GET ETERNAL LIFE, I SUGGEST YOU GO TO PRISON. FOR IT IS BETTER TO BE IN BONDAGE IN PRISON AND GET ETERNAL LIFE THAN TO LIVE IN LIBERTY HERE AND GO TO HELL.
32.      THAT WHICH YOU KNOW WILL STOP YOU FROM MAKING PARADISE, CUT IT OFF. EVEN IF YOUR PARENTS DO NOT OWN YOU, GOD OWNS YOU. DID YOU GET THE MESSAGE? FINE!
33.      So women, if what you have heard from Me sinks well with you, go home and have your rest. “Go home and have your rest”. You know there are some certain statements that are very hard?
34.      You know I am married. I have children. I have grandchildren. Any day My wife has come to a conclusion that I am a merely passive husband, a trouble she cannot bear anymore, she is authorized to go and hire her house or build one, live there comfortably. Period!
35.      ANYTHING CAN BE NEGOTIATED, BUT NOT ETERNAL LIFE. Of what use is it living with a man who does not care? Then I am merely answering a name I do not possess. Am I not deceiving myself? So it is with the children.
36.      That was why I preferred My life as a slave to My life when I was with My parents. I knew I was suffering in the hands of strangers, but it was giving Me abundant joy more than staying with My parents who offered Me absolutely nothing.
37.      If I did not accept to go for slavery, I would not be what I am today. After receiving training, you retrain yourself. Can you point a smelly object for a fly?
38.      So many people are there abroad without having any hope of coming down here again. They marry there, raise children, die there and even be buried.
39.      Some are even leaving here for too many countries, residing there. Is it not when you build a house that it becomes your own?
40.      If Abraham gets money today, he has the right to buy land anywhere, build his house and establish a kingdom with his family that has nothing to do with Goddy or Ngozi.

  
I THINK IT IS BETTER I WEAR RAGS, GIVING THE IMPRESSION THAT I LIVE FROM HAND TO MOUTH AND THEN WHEN PROVED, I WOULD BE DISCOVERED TO BE A FEEDER OF THE NATION THAN TO GIVE THE IMPRESSION THAT I AM FEEDING THE WHOLE WORLD WHEN I CANNOT FEED MYSELF.
PROGRESSIVE LIFE EXAMINATION; Preached on Sunday, 7th September 2008; Pg. 125 vs 72

LIFE IS NO LIFE UNLESS IT IS PROGRESSIVE

1.          ONCE A MAN IS MARRIED, HE HAS A MOTHER; HE HAS A SISTER; HE HAS EVERYTHING.
2.          LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. THE MOMENT A MAN IS WEANED, HE IS ON HIS OWN. THE MOMENT A WOMAN IS WEANED, SHE IS ON HER OWN. DID YOU HEAR WHAT I AM SAYING?
3.          Does an adult suck the mother’s breast? Abraham is not looking up to the day the father will give him one trailer. Neither will his father give him a portion of land. Nothing!
4.          Then, what is his inheritance? Is it in the name that cannot portray anything good? A name that speaks evil and speaks doom. A name that does not engender progress. Why continuing with that useless name? I will answer My own name direct.
5.          Life is about your destiny. One is guided by his destiny.  After all, My destiny is in My hands. THE DAYS ARE OVER WHEN YOU WANT SOMEBODY TO DETERMINE YOUR DESTINY.
6.          CHECK WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND YOU. THERE ARE MISTAKES IN EVERY ASPECT OF HUMAN LIFE. IF YOU MADE A MISTAKE, ACCEPT IT AND BEGIN TO LOOK FOR A WAY TO REMEDY IT. I hope I am making sense?
7.          There are too many mistakes in marriage. Too many mistakes. People married because their mates were marrying.  People that married with borrowed income, borrowed dresses, they could not defend the marriage.
8.          For any position you attain in life, you must defend it. A man that buys a car, after which he starts walking on his feet again, did he not deceive himself?
9.          One who bought a car and could not maintain it, is he qualified to own a car? If the person bought a motorcycle without maintaining it, is he qualified to buy a motorcycle? He purchased it as a result of pride and pride humiliated him.
10.      The same thing is applicable to a wife. If you marry a wife and you cannot feed her, you cannot buy clothes, you cannot see to the upkeep of your children, you cannot pay the school fees of your children even at this lower level, are you qualified to marry?
11.      An Igbo adage says that nobody is guilty of that which was done in its due time. If you undertake to do it before its time, you have been unduly desperate.
12.      There are things you can achieve with envy, but not building of house; not marrying a wife, and not buying a car. If you buy a car as a result of envy, you cannot maintain it with envy.
13.      You do not mould blocks with envy to. If you mold blocks with envy, you cannot erect a building with envy. You do not buy a car as a result of envy. If you buy a car as a result of envy, will you maintain it with envy?
14.      Of these three things I mentioned, anyone you have the capacity, you do it.  If you mould blocks so that you will be numbered among those that moulded blocks, goats will use it as a playground. “once upon a time, I moulded twenty blocks there.”“Proposed mansion” You will place a signboard. “Proposed Duplex”. What made it not to be a reality?
15.      Can you, with your mouth, put fish into the soup? Anywhere you see “proposed storey building”, leave the man alone he is merely contending for that parcel of land.
16.      An Igbo adage says that in land dispute, the contender with yam seedlings will continue planting them. Someone that said his destiny was stolen, what were you doing before? What was your destiny before you noticed that someone stole it?
17.      You have not done anything meaningful and yet, someone stole your destiny? Can’t you see that the person is a goat?
18.      The principle of turn-by-turn does not apply in the building of a house. Neither does it apply in marriage and buying of car. Your junior brother can go ahead of you in any of these ventures. Overtaking is allowed. This is true.
19.      I was jubilating yesterday in My house. If I knew how to drink, I would have taken a lot of drink because My junior was jubilating, giving Me a good news because he has been progressing for some time now.
20.      Now he obeyed, went into the business I trained him, dropped the one he was doing over the years which was not yielding any dividend. Then, My headache reduced. He now takes good care of his  family.
21.      The wife established a school and they are running it very well. He is doing his drug business, and then purchased two parcels of land there in Warri, fenced them. I was very happy with the Lawyer who signed all the documents.
22.      Then yesterday, he bought a Camry® (Big Daddy), direct Belgium to help his family. I said, “Praise God.” Who would not be happy? Now look at the wife. From good to better and better to best.
23.      LIFE IS NO LIFE UNLESS IT IS PROGRESSIVE. THAT IS WHAT I AM SAYING. “LIFE IS NO LIFE UNLESS IT IS PROGRESSIVE”. IF LIFE IS NOT PROGRESSIVE, WHAT LIFE MEANS IS MARKING TIME.
24.      Your body is making movement, mark time, “Left-Right! Left-Right!” You are in one place, but your body is shaking. We say, “Move forward”, and you are still marking time. STOP MARKING TIME.
25.      So, you listen to your names after which you go and collect your I.D cards at the end of the day. Deacon Celestine Nsukka: Withheld. Good.
26.      Nsukka Brethren that are here, stand up immediately. I have told your Pastor over the phone. Many knew about it.
27.      Celestine Ofoegbu ceases to be a Deacon, not only in Nsukka household, but in the whole Bride of Christ Ministry Worldwide from the first Sunday of the year 2019.
28.      The day I called his name and he was conspicuously absent. That was the day he forfeited that office for I saw danger coming and I have directed your Pastor.
29.      I want to make it public. He is not a Deacon in our midst again. He remains a Brother until his case is determined.
30.      From the reports he gave Me and his answer to My question; there were too many questions, but I pinpointed one. I was there with many Elders, and My phone was on speak out. I found him guilty of criminality.
31.      I know Bro Joe Ogbuka is doing his own work as a Barrister. He defends both the guilty and the guiltless. For he believes that no man is guilty. Every man remains a suspect until the court of appropriate and competent jurisdiction proves him guilty.
32.      So, upon that backdrop, he stands in the court. That is his profession. If Celestine Ofoegbu wins, he will pay Ogbuka chambers, not Bro. Joe. If he loses, he will pay.
33.      So, the beer, cosmetics, beverages Bro. Joe Ogbuka displayed in Ogbuka, Ogbuka chambers is nothing but defending truth and lies.
34.      But concerning the matter which he [Celestine Ofoegbu] is arraigned before the Police, by now he should have been arraigned before the court.
35.      AND WHOSOEVER THAT TAKES DELIGHT IN DEFENDING SOMEBODY THAT IS GUILTY OF A CRIME IN THIS FAITH CAN NEVER WIN MY FAVOUR BECAUSE IF YOU SUCCEED, HE WILL CONTINUE.
36.      I will like to see a situation, for the sake of the Faith and brotherhood, I will hear Brother Joe say,“My Lord, I withdraw from this case.”[Brother Joe Ogbuka reacts faithfully,“My Lord, I have done it already.”]
37.      God bless you! This is exactly what I want to hear. Have you ever called Me since then? From the beginning till now, have you ever discussed with me?
38.      I discussed with him and I found him guilty. I pronounced him guilty, and he acknowledged he was guilty. So, he not only spearheaded it, he got his share of the loot. Be seated everybody. Amen.
39.      Look at his I.D card, withheld. And look at the date. He was removed from the office of the Deacon before he committed the crime.
40.      The crime was boiling in him, the opportunities were there, he swapped his duty with somebody else but he could not commit that crime for there was something hindering him within the period he swapped positions.
41.      Then at another time, he had a field day with his colleague for they were completely free and they did it the way they wanted, and ended it the way they wanted. Amen.
42.      Do not excommunicate him so that it will be very easy to arrest him because he is placed on bail. If you excommunicate him, he will jump the bail and whoever that bailed him will be in trouble. So, keep close surveillance over him. Amen.
43.      Pastor Attah, Elder Nwobu, Pastor Obinna [Port Harcourt], Sister Obinna, Deacon Elechi, Sister Emma [Cross-River], Sister Umezuluike [Professor], Sister Sunny Chukwu, Sister Ebele Chukwudi Obi [Ebele Obosi].
44.      So, these names once we are through for today, go and collect your I.D cards from Bro. Chibuko.
45.      Now, we have tried the much we could to put our gadgets together but the cost was enormous. It is about a hundred and twenty-eight thousand naira [₦128,000.00]. We decided to go the other way round.
46.      So, good news to all of you. If you know you can afford it, what we need is the cost price.
47.      At the end of today or while you are moving around, go to the table there, collect the video tape for the meeting at Enugu in December.
48.      We have the two samples here. Watch the thing. 29th, 30th.
49.      If you can afford it, you go for it. Where you cannot afford it, do not bother yourself. You can collect from people and reprint. The only thing you will miss is the packaging.
50.      So these two packs contain four CDs of 4.75GB each. You go there and pay N1,500 instead of N2,000. Once you give N1,500, collect the two. That’s all.
51.      We still have the stickers there. The sticker we have there is for the doors and windows.
52.      Wherever you pasted the Eastern Star, of a necessity, paste for Me not for yourself. Paste that black one that has the Star and something logo.
53.      We have them on our vehicles already. If you do not have for your vehicles, order for your own copy.
54.      But for your doors and windows, for your shops, wherever you have that Eastern Star, place this small one by the side. Thank you!
55.      It is not compulsory. It is only for those that have that faith. I would not give you testimony until those that testified will be here. Everything works by Faith. True or false?
56.      Finally, we invite the Teacher to the pulpit. I was alerted, the Teacher is our Brother [Pastor Fear God Emmanuel]. You can take over the pulpit.
