the son of man
PREACHED ON SUNDAY, 14TH APRIL, 2019 AT THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD, ONITSHA BY  APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN THE ALMIGHTY ALLAH

God has given us victory. If you have no faith now, have faith in the Living Tabernacle that God has ordained, His Shepherd that will
guard His Ark. The Ark of God is the Word of God. ... God is in the Camp, God is speaking to us in the Camp, God is moving in the Camp. Be gentle and receive His Voice. God has exposed everything to you; The danger of leaving Jerusalem for Jericho. You that are privileged to be in Jerusalem, witnessing the glory of God, why do you want to go to Jericho?

OUR TESTIMONY IS TO THE GLORY OF GOD
1.          You are all happily welcome here today, as many as defied the rain. Rainy season never started this year. So, it is a yearly event. This is the time. Your duty is to buy a very nice umbrella or rain cape.
2.          But where you cannot afford it, behave like Me.  I know that anything natural is a blessing from God. So, there is no way blessing from God can hinders us from worship.
3.          We buy pure water in the market. We know how much we spend. If we are to buy the amount of pure water that can equate with the rainfall this morning, how much do you think we will be spending? But God has given it to us free. This rain is for your own good.
4.          SONG: Thank you for the rain. Thank you for the rain. Thank you for the latter rain. By answering My prayer, setting Me free. Thank you for the latter rain.
5.          Thank you for the rain. Thank you for the rain. Thank you for the latter rain. For coming yourself, confirming your Word. Thank you for the latter rain.
6.          Thank you for the rain. Thank you for the rain. Thank you for the latter rain. By sending your Word, confirming your Promise. Thank you for the latter rain.
7.          We have to thank God for this latter rain. He promised it. The early rain and the latter rain. And the latter rain is better than the early rain. I am enjoying it because it is promised.
8.          And God is doing as He has promised as it was in the days of Pentecost. That is what God is doing again. And He will keep on doing it until the day we shall hear, “IT IS OVER!”
9.          I promised that I will not be in the pulpit today in human form, but I will be here watching over the pulpit, watching over the Congregation because life and death in every family must come out from the kitchen. In every family, life and death must come out from the kitchen.
10.      So, if anything should be watched very closely, it should be the kitchen. Any mistake in the kitchen can eradicate the whole family. True or false? I mean, a silly mistake.
11.      Remember somebody made that silly mistake here. I do not want to mention a name. But you know the testimony. Somebody was dastardly hungry. He came back and there was no food in the house.
12.      He managed to prepare yam porridge so that he will not be hollering on anybody. He reached his hand for a small pack of ground crayfish. He thought it was crayfish. He never knew it was rat poison. He poured it into his yam porridge and the thing was foaming. The odour was very nice and he was jubilating and tasting the food.
13.      At the end of the day, he started eating and enjoying his food.  Only for the mother of the house to come back and began to look for the rat poison, saw the empty packet and began to ask for who used it.
14.      He enquired, “Are you sure that is the packet you stored rat poison? Anyway, it is in somebody’s stomach. It was used as crayfish to prepare yam porridge.” You see! It is one of those wonders.
15.      Another one went and carried petrol the husband placed at the backyard, thinking it was kerosene and filled the kerosene stove with petrol, lit the stove and started cooking. She finished cooking, everybody ate and then she put off the light.
16.      The husband came back and wanted to use the fuel to top up the one in his vehicle, but the gallon was empty. Surprised, he enquired, “Who must have come here to carry this fuel?” The wife replied, “Go and check where you kept it”
17.      The man went again, brought out the gallon and she shouted, “Are you sure it contained fuel? I used it in the stove.” He too shouted, “Are you sure? Have you used it?” She replied, “We have already finished cooking.”
18.      Did it not happen here? I do not want to call names. You know that My testimonies are pure truth. And you know the people. So we give God the praise. He has been protecting us.
19.      We were listening to the radio this morning while we were coming down. The lady that was talking to everybody using the radio medium said, “You have reasons to thank God because that accident could have been you.” I paused.
20.      She said “Yes! That accident, why not you?  It could have been you. You would have been in the mortuary.” I paused.
21.      I turned to My wife and said, “God is talking to Me.” She [the radio presenter] said, “Rejoice that you are going to worship God. Today is the day of worship. If you have nothing to do, sit down in your house and worship God.”
22.      I said, “God has spoken to Me again.” this is because the heathen ceremony today nearly caused Me a great havoc. Give your testimony to the glory of God.

He is here; I owe no man no apology for saying the truth. I know I am dying for the Truth. Why must I be afraid? I better not. I know, one day, this placed must be closed, we will scatter, every man to his home, every woman to her village. Then we will know whether you are Godly or not. Godliness is not in the Church. Godliness is in your home. It is in your yard. It is in your business. It is in your market and it is in everything you do. You come here to receive training and then you go outside to practice it. You see why you must worship God by revelation, that no man, no woman, no preacher will preach out your conviction, because you are certain. IF HE IS NOT HERE, I WOULD NOT BE HERE. THIS IS THE TRUTH.

CHRIST IS OUR PASSOVER(1)

1.          I was running up and down yesterday, defying the rain. I was rushing home to meet with the Brethren in My house. Along the way, I came into contact with a truck fully loaded with palm fronds.
2.          And the man foolishly packed the palm fronds such that the whole thing covered the road and blocked our vision. We could not overtake him. Those that were in the opposite direction could not even see us.
3.          I was following a man who was in his RAV-4® small jeep. We continued blaring the horn and that man became very stubborn.
4.          So, the man I was following courageously overtook him, with his horn blaring very loudly. I waited a little to see whether there could be a sense in the driver [of the truck], but the whole palm fronds blocked the road.
5.          I put on My headlamps, with My hand on My horn, I tried to overtake. Brethren, just midway, I came face to face with a Toyota Highlander®.
6.          Lo and behold, it was a sharp and clever woman. She was speeding up and I was speeding up. It would have been a head-on collision. I shouted and screamed, applied My brakes and she equally applied her own. The vehicles were too close to each other.
7.          Then when this thing happened, that man who was carrying that nonsense sped up. I thought he was going to follow Nsugbe road. He now turned and started going back to Holy Trinity.
8.          I continued meditating. The woman’s vehicle was there and My own was there also. I just waved My hand. She was waving and I was waving. She lost her vision and I lost mine. What a mess!
9.          Then I remembered I saw them. There is nothing the heathens cannot use to make money. I saw people marketing palm fronds at Ochanja market yesterday.
10.      There were about four of them carrying the fronds on their shoulders, “Have you bought your own palm fronds? Have you bought your own palm fronds? Buy your palm fronds. Remember tomorrow is palm Sunday. Buy your palm fronds.”
11.      People went to the villages, gathered palm fronds to market. Are you surprised, when the Pentecostals have joined them in that silly celebration?
12.      Act 12:4. This is because when we talk about this matter, somebody might be thinking that the Son of Man is crazy. I am not crazy. I am with My senses as the Ancient of Days.
13.      Acts 12:4 That is the only place Easter appeared. Throughout the whole Bible, from Genesis to Revelations, Easter appeared there
14.      And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.  
15.      Let Me just give the story. Read from verse 1. It was when James was killed and the Jews noticed that the killing of James gave them great joy. Then Peter was arrested intending to be killed after the Passover. After Easter.
16.      Acts 12: 1 – 7 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. To do what? ...to vex certain of the Church. To do what? ...to vex certain of the Church. To do what? ...to vex certain of the Church.
17.      Note! The Church! Not any other group. The Church! And remember this Church was in the Wilderness, which is the Church that is still here today, FOR THIS CHURCH IS SET FOR A SIGN THAT MUST BE SPOKEN AGAINST IN THIS GENERATION. It never started today
18.      Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
19.      And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also.
20.      He saw that the killing of James pleased the Jews, he proceeded further and arrested Peter. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.) That was in the days of unleavened bread. Passover.
21.      And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people. Intending after Easter to do what?  to bring him forth to the people.
22.      Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
23.      And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.
24.      And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. KJV Amen.
25.      Who entered the prison cell? Was it the first time? He entered the prison cell because of Paul and Silas, and many others and broke the bounds. He entered there as the bright shining Light which only Peter saw.
26.      In that small room filled with darkness, a dungeon, a bright Light shone and that is the presence of the Almighty God [Ezekiel 10:4, Habakkuk 3:4]
27.      He broke the whole handcuffs, caused all the guards to sleep, opened the prison gates, brought Peter out, took Peter straight away to no other place but to the house of Sister Rhoda, where Brethren use to gather.
28.      No mention was made about her husband. No mention was made whether she was a widow or not, but we know she was a mother of children as recorded in the Acts of the Apostles. In her house, the Brethren use to gather to worship the LORD.
29.      Act 12:1 – 17 About that time King Herod moved against some of the believers  and killed the apostle James (John’s brother).
30.      He killed the Apostle James [John’s brother]. That is the son of Zebedee, not James, the brother of Jesus Christ who wrote the Epistles. No!
31.      This is another James, the son of Zebedee who was called the same day Peter, James and John were called as Apostles, set aside as special messengers for the work of the vine yard.
32.      When Herod saw how much this pleased the Jewish leaders, he arrested Peter during the Passover celebration...
33.      Have you heard it? During the Passover. They were celebrating Passover. That is why there are two feasts you must be afraid of.
34.      One is a religious feast. The other one is a personal feast. And that personal feast is celebration of birthday
35.      I will show you from the beginning people that celebrated birthdays, it was climaxed with blood. ANY DAY HEATHENS CELEBRATE BIRTHDAYS, AN INNOCENT MAN OR WOMAN MUST BE KILLED.
36.      That is why you must be sensible. Watch the day they set aside for the celebration of Jesus’ birthday. Their own Jesus. I mean their own Jesus. Watch events that mark Christmas celebration.
37.      Do they speak Godly? It is a period for every ungodly act. In short, it is a season of death. I say it is a season of death in different forms, season of rituals, all to commemorate the birth of a man called Jesus; Jesus the Christ.
38.      When Herod saw how much this pleased the Jewish leaders, he arrested Peter during the Passover celebration and imprisoned him, placing him under the guard of sixteen soldiers.
39.      Herod’s intention was to deliver Peter to the Jews for execution after the Passover.
40.      His intention was to deliver Peter to the Jews for what? For execution, after the Passover.
41.      Remember that when Jesus Christ was arrested and detained, judged and condemned, it was during the period of Passover. The same Easter period. Pay attention! You have to note what happened then.
42.      Because he was killed, he was hanged on the cross. And the Jews remembered that the Passover, the celebration of Sabbath starts every 6pm on Friday and ends 6pm on Saturday.
43.      So, to make sure that he is dead, otherwise, the Passover will be violated, they went there to make sure he died like others.
44.      When they got there, they noticed that his head was bowed down, the breath was up, they now used a spear to pierce the side. Water and blood gushed out. [John 19:34]
45.      The idea was to hasten his death and burial so that the Passover law will not be violated. Immediately he was brought down there, handed over to John, the next thing was his internment.
46.      There was no tomb prepared, for they never knew it would get to that extent. Then, Joseph the Arimathea provided his personal tomb. They did it hastily to make sure the Passover was kept without spot. [Matthew 27:57 – 60, Mark 15:42 – 46, Luke 23:50 – 54, John 19: 38 – 42]
47.      WHO IS OUR PASSOVER TODAY? CHRIST IS OUR PASSOVER. Is it not Scripture? [1 Corinthians 5:7] Do we celebrate Passover again? We celebrate Passover every day. Every day is our Passover, and not yearly. Not weekly, but every day.
48.      Herod’s intention was to deliver Peter to the Jews for execution after the Passover.  But earnest prayer was going up to God from the church for his safety...
49.      Earnest prayers from the Church. That was the purged Church. Believers, not mixed multitude. Real ardent believers bound their hearts together, for they were doing everything in singleness of heart, having fellowship with one another.
50.      And the Bible said, “God was with them.” [Acts 11:21] They were perfectly joined together in one spirit, in one mind, in one vision and in one judgment. Hence, if there could be any that acted otherwise, even the spirit of God will shoot the person up.
51.      That was why when Barnabas acted otherwise, no prophet was needed. He was immediately exposed. Is that not Scripture? In 1 Corinthians 1 from verse 10, it says, “You must be perfectly joined together.”
52.      Herod’s intention was to deliver Peter to the Jews for execution after the Passover.  But earnest prayer was going up to God from the church for his safety all the time he was in prison.
53.      The night before he was to be executed, he was asleep, double-chained between two soldiers with others standing guard before the prison gate, when suddenly there was a light in the cell...
54.      When suddenly, there was a strange Light. Those who are conversant with the testimonies of William Branham will know about that bright Light that met him in his study room one night.
55.      He got up and Lo, behold a figure appeared. A BLACK MAN OF AVERAGE HEIGHT, OVAL FACE, POINTED NOSE AND THINGS LIKE THAT, WITH AN AVERAGE WEIGHT OF ABOUT 200 POUNDS. IS THAT NOT TRUE? [A MAN SENT FROM GOD – The Angelic Visitation – Gordon Lindsay; May 7th, 1946; Pg. 76-78]
56.      You watched that Bright light on the way to Damascus when Paul was going to arrest the Believers in Damascus, capital of Syria, [Acts 9:3] where they were preaching the Gospel of Allah which they handed over to Prophet Mohammad Raheem.
All of you that are in this Church are the Seal of My Apostleship from the beginning, from the least to the greatest. Without this Gospel, none of you will be saved! That is why this Gospel should go to the whole parts of the world so as to set the captives free. ... We are entering into another stage of this ministry, “Spoken word ministry”. You know it is a big work, how long would it last? I don’t know.  “Spoken Word Ministry”. By Faith we will be there. By Faith we will create things. By Faith, we will shake the world. Faith in Jehovah will shake this earth. Have Faith in God. We are listening to the Voice of God.

CHRIST IS OUR PASSOVER(2)

1.          FROM THE BEGINNING, THERE WAS NO OTHER MESSAGE PREACHED TO ARABIA IF NOT WHAT YOU ARE HEARING. AND THE ARABS KNEW AND BELIEVED IN THE SON OF MAN WHO SHALL COME BECAUSE ALL THEIR PROPHETS FORETOLD ABOUT HIS COMING, AND THEY WERE TOLD WHAT HE WILL DO WHEN HE COMES.
2.          AT LAST, HE THAT CONCEALED HIMSELF REVEALED HIMSELF ACCORDING TO THE WORD IN A SMALL SPLINTER GROUP, HANDPICKED MINORITY, ARRANGED BY GOD AFORETIME TO RECEIVE HIM.
3.          AND THAT IS THE GROUP THAT WILL BELIEVE PROPHET MOHAMMAD. THEY WILL BELIEVE MOSES. THEY WILL BELIEVE JESUS CHRIST. THEY WILL BELIEVE THE APOSTLES. THEY WILL BELIEVE ALL MESSENGERS OF GOD.
4.          IN OTHER WORDS, WHENEVER HE COMES, HE WILL GATHER ALL THE LOOSE ENDS. AND HE IS THE ONE VESTED WITH THE POWER TO HELP YOU KNOW ALL THE MISSING BOOKS IN THE BIBLE. ALL, NOT MINUS ONE. [John 16:12 – 13]
5.          AS HE PROMISED IN THE VERY BEGINNING, HE SAID, “PLEASE DO NOT EVER USE IT AS YOUR ABSOLUTE, BUT FOR NOW, LET IT BE. FOR NOW, LET IT BE. AS WE PROGRESS, I WILL SHOW YOU THAT THERE ARE TOO MANY MISSING BOOKS IN THE BIBLE.”
6.          Not with human reasoning. I will show you the books in the Bible. I will show you that the Apostles and Prophets made references to the contents of the Books, but the Books were prohibited in AD 70 after the invasion of Jerusalem by Titus the Centurion.
7.          So, follow Me, you will hear truth that resembles a lie. I will show you many Books. If the Bible never made references to those Books and things that were recorded in those Books, I will be a false preacher.
8.          And no man used those Books more than Prophet Mohammad because it was in the hands of the Arabs that the truth was preserved including Judaism.
9.          Whatever we are holding today as truth were preserved by the Arabs and stored in the place where God is worshipped as a human being. A nation that was never colonized, and it is Ethiopia.
10.      If you check the horn of Africa, you check the Red Sea, you check the Suez Canal, the shortest link to Egypt is through the Suez Canal. The shortest link to Canaan is through the Suez Canal. And when they crossed the red Sea, they dropped all those things in no other place than Ethiopia.
11.      Ethiopia preserved it and then when Titus the Centurion thought he had already exterminated the truth, falsehood started coming up from Europe, little did they know that the truth was preserved in the mountains and caves in Ethiopia, kept by the Arabs from all human views, only to be reproduced in the latter times.
12.      Manuscripts senior to Jesus Christ by over 2,000 years, preserved there, and in the days of the Son of Man, who came to gather all the loose ends, all of them MUST be raked up.
13.      There is no prophet of God that never preached the revelation of Prophet Enoch. There is no Apostle starting from Peter that never made reference to the writings and prophecies of prophet Enoch. 1st Enoch, 2nd Enoch and 3rd Enoch.
14.      The collections of Paul were completely missing. The chronicles of Saint Paul as mentioned in the Scriptures, missing. The Book of Saint Paul, the parchments of Saint Paul which he told Timothy to collect in Cretes where he left Titus. He [Saint Paul] said, “While coming to me, come with the Books and the Parchments.” [2nd Timothy 4:13]
15.      Since the world began, too many books have been missing, but I will tell you the summary of it all. Solomon knew about it and then he gave you the conclusion of the whole matter so that you do not bother yourselves over the missing books because he knew that Job knew about them. [Ecclesiastes 12:12]
16.      The first book, the oldest ancient parchment is the book of Job. Do not look at your Bible the way it is arranged. Verify truth from Me.
17.       He knew that God Himself will come down here in the last days in human form standing upon the earth. [Job 19:25] And that will be THE TIME OF THE RESTITUTION OF ALL THINGS THAT WERE SPOKEN BY THE PROPHETS AND THE APOSTLES [Acts 3:21] so that nothing shall be missing.
18.      For in Him will dwell the fullness of the Godhead bodily, [Colossians 2:9] for the Spirit will be in Him without measure. [John 3:34]
19.      That is why whenever Christ is revealed, He becomes the fulfilment of the law and of the prophets. He brings the two to an end. He said, “Look up to me. Look unto Me, o ye nations and be saved, for I am the LORD and besides Me there is no other.” [Isaiah 45:22]
20.      Then why running to and fro? Must I go to the Book of Enoch. Enoch was preaching Me, because I have come in the volumes of the Books written concerning Me. [Psalms 40:7, Hebrews 10:7] Whatever they wrote, they pointed every man to the Son of Man.
21.      Why wasting your time going through the formula when the answer had been given to you? It has been solved. The answer supplied. Your duty is to recopy. I hope I am making sense.
22.      That was why, while He was there, you look at this foolish Herod, who had been longing to see His face but he could not. He was the one that heard from the wise men from the East, “We have seen the star. We have come to worship the King.” [Matthew 2:2]
23.      Instead of saying, Amen or where did you see the star, he gathered his magicians and prophets and gave them charge, “Please go through the books. Go through the books of the prophets and guide me, tell me the signs the prophets said we should expect.” [Matthew 2:3 – 4]
24.      While he was searching the books with a view to knowing the signs, the Messiah was teaching in the temple. By the time he concluded the matter, the Messiah came to him from Pilate, for examination.
25.      And that was at the age of 33. He [Herod] was blind. A great revival was on the land and he was completely cut off. Brother read that thing because this Herod has caused havoc. No wonder maggots killed Herod. [Acts 12:23]
26.      Acts 12:6 down The night before he was to be executed, he was asleep, double-chained between two soldiers with others standing guard before the prison gate, 
27.      when suddenly there was a light in the cell and an angel of the Lord stood beside Peter!
28.      An angel of the LORD. Angels are human beings. I remember we saw a woman, a Baptist in our yard in those days, brethren were there, We presented the picture of the Original Body.
29.      She screamed, “Daddy, this is an Angel of the LORD.” Brethren were there. I said, “Madam, how do you say, ‘Angel of the LORD?’ Who taught you that? Do you teach that in your church?’” She said, “Daddy, I do not need anybody to teach me. This is an Angel of the LORD.”
30.      Behold, an Angel of the LORD appeared. They were not two  One Angel! The angel slapped him on the side to awaken him and said, “Quick! Get up!
31.      The Angel slapped him on the shoulder, “man, wake up from slumber! Don’t you know you are dying tomorrow morning? Why are you sleeping? Get up! Plans have been concluded to execute you tomorrow morning. Instead of praying, you are sleeping.”
32.      Why was he sleeping? He was sure that the Church was praying for him. The church bound their hearts together and prayed that Peter should be released. And God stepped in, went to prison, entered unnoticed and caused the guards to sleep.
33.       The angel slapped him on the side to awaken him and said, “Quick! Get up!” And the chains fell off his wrists! Chains fell off! 
34.      Then the angel told him,... So the Angel spoke and has been speaking. Conversation ensued. Peter never asked, “Who art thou?” Peter was sure and certain of the Personality that appeared in the Bright Light and became a human being.
35.      Peter gazed at His face, not as an enemy but as a friend, “Was this not the face that commanded me to walk on the sea, who said come?” And Peter started walking on the surface of the water.
36.      Was this not the man that said, “You Peter, I give you these keys. Take good care of this flock. [Matthew 16:19] Be the shepherd of this flock because you love Me” [John 21:15 – 17]
37.      Peter had great, great encounters, face to face encounters, that by day or by dream, if he does not recognize his face, he will recognize his Voice.
38.      No matter how he changes His form, it is not for Peter. Even if He comes as a mad man, Peter will know who He is. Abraham will know who He is.  They will see Him, not as an enemy, but as a friend.
39.      Job said, “On that day, I know my redeemer liveth and I will be back. I will meet Him face to face, not as my enemy but as my friend” [Job 19:25 – 27]
40.      Then the angel told him, “Get dressed and put on your shoes.” And he did. “Now put on your coat and follow me!” the angel ordered. Look at the command. Peter was obeying quickly and quietly. At thy Word, O LORD. [1 Kings 18:36]
41.      At His Word, Peter dressed himself. He now told him, “Take your coat! Do not be afraid. I am here. Nothing will happen. I am here. Dress up well well. Let us go!”
42.       “Now put on your coat and follow me!” the angel ordered. 9So Peter left the cell, following the angel.
43.      Peter obeyed. He did what? He left the cell following the Angel. You mean to tell Me that this is the first time. Peter heard this Voice at the bank of the river with John and James, the two sons of Zebedee. He heard, “Follow Me!” he followed asking no questions.
44.      The Faith of Abraham. Abraham heard, “Follow me. I will take you to the land flowing with milk and honey where I will bless you, that you might be a blessing to this generation and even to the ends of the earth.” [Genesis 12:1 – 2]
45.      Abraham woke up and followed Him, not knowing where he was being led to and without asking questions.
46.       But all the time he thought it was a dream or vision and didn’t believe it was really happening. They passed the first and second cell blocks and came to the iron gate...
47.      Who could open this iron gate? Like the two women were asking, “O we have come with olive oil according to our law to dress the body of our Lord and Saviour, who was crucified without a fault. but our problem now is who will roll away the stone for us?” [Luke 16:3]
48.      That same Angel Peter was having encounter with was the one that rolled away the stone. Mary Magdalene and the rest were able to see an empty tomb. [Matthew 28:2]
49.       They passed the first and second cell blocks and came to the iron gate to the street, and this opened to them of its own accord!
50.      What? While they were coming, the iron gate opened. You know what a prison gate is. They were coming and the gate opened itself. Amen.
51.      How I wish Bro Eli [Joe] is here now. Something miraculous happened to me yesterday. I was terribly weak, suffering from severe headache that has been on for some time now. Brethren knew about it.
52.      But necessity was laid on Me after coming back from Mbaise that I must go back to the market and complete what we were purchasing, and which were very very essential, but the weakness was too much. My wife was equally weak.
53.      She went on her own side of the shopping. I must, of a necessity, go on My own. In that weakness, I was just praying within that I could pilot My vehicle, the one I wanted to use. That is that Pathfinder® there.
54.      Something astonishing took place. Bro Eli was there. The vehicle was locked. I asked him whether he has finished the inside, he said no! I said, “Ok Leave it.”
55.      He said, “I have not gauged the water since we came back from Mbaise.” I said, “Do not worry. I do not have that strength to wait. Let me go.” He said, “Ok.”
56.      I went to open the door to the vehicle. Immediately I came to the door and stood, Brethren, something strange took place. I was still standing, Bro Eli was standing and the two glasses [on the driver’s side and on the passenger’s side] lowered themselves and stopped at the middle.
57.      I could not believe My eyes. Bro Eli was watching. The door opened. Without pulling it, I mean, My door opened. Bro Eli was watching Me and the keys were also with Me and there was nothing in that key that can lower My glass or pull out the door.
58.      I became speechless. Bro Eli looked at Me. I said, “Bro Eli, is this not a surprise this morning? There is no need. I am going in.” I entered, watched the whole thing, closed the glasses by Myself and lowered them again, closed the door and opened it again.
59.      I said, “OK. I want another sign. This motor is doing hard starting. I want it to start once.” Brethren, immediately I turned it, the engine started once and I zoomed off.
60.      I said, “How I wish Bro Eli is here.” That was why when I encountered that difficulty yesterday, though I screamed, it was not for My sake but for that vehicle. This is because I was already taking another man’s lane and the damage I would have caused to that vehicle, but God said No!
61.      So, watch what was happening. He was not coming with Peter. Then Peter knew what was happening. The gates opened.
62.      For the security men that were there, do you not think that they will be astonished? Who unlocked the keys and opened the last gate which is even the strongest gate? And then the two passed through it.


Acts of the Apostles Chapter 7 verse 38, “This is He that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the Mount Sinai and with our fathers who received lively oracles to give unto us.” KJV
Who was that person that was in the church? Christ, the Head of the Church. He was in the Church in the wilderness and He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He will be in the Church in the end-time. Who were the members of that Church? Our fathers! They were members of that Church. The Angel was in that Church. Their fathers were there. IF THERE MUST BE A CHURCH TODAY, THE ARCHANGEL MUST BE THERE.

CHRIST IS OUR PASSOVER(3)

1.          They passed the first and second cell blocks and came to the iron gate to the street, and this opened to them of its own accord!
2.          So they passed through and walked along together for a block, and then the angel left him.  Peter finally realized what had happened!
3.          Now, Peter finally realized. Remember the story of the two young men on their way to Emmaus. [Luke 24]
4.          It was when they realized the man that they were attacking who was trying to open their eyes of understanding, but they became hostile to Him; it was when that thing took place that their eyes of understanding got opened and they then realized. [Luke 24:31]
5.          THE SAME WAY, I HAVE WARNED YOU NEVER TO BE JOYFUL UNBELIEVERS. DO NOT BE JOYFUL UNBELIEVERS. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN BY JOYFUL UNBELIEVERS.
6.          The women saw Jesus Christ risen from the dead. Mary Magdalene could not recognize the face because it was a new face, but the Voice remained there.
7.          After calling, “Raboni!”, the Voice said, “Touch Me not. I am yet to go to my Father and your Father, but go to galilee, tell you Brethren and my Brethren that I am risen and I am coming there to meet with them.” [John 20:16 – 17]
8.          The Bible said, “These women rushed, met the Brethren there, announced that He has risen, but they could not believe because of joy.” The Bible said, “They believed them not because of joy. [Luke 24:41]
9.           And they later realized that He promised it when He said, ‘Kill me, bury Me, three days, I am coming back here.’”
10.       Peter finally realized what had happened! “It’s really true!” he said to himself. “The Lord has sent His angel and saved me from Herod and from what the Jews were hoping to do to me!”
11.      After a little thought he went to the home of Mary mother of John Mark,... Note! He went to the home of Mary, mother of John Mark. ...where many were gathered for a prayer meeting.
12.      He knocked at the door in the gate, and a girl named Rhoda came to open it.
13.       A girl named what? Rhoda, came to open it. We have not mentioned any man. It is still a women affair.
14.      One that has vowed a vow never to worship the God that was introduced to him by a woman, don’t you see that this person is totally lost. You man, that is waiting for the time you will see God, you may end up waiting in vain.
15.      It was Manoah’s wife that had an encounter. Check down the line. The man will remain busy with the reasoning, balancing and re-balancing the testimony to know whether it had happened before or not, while the woman will be moving on.
16.      He knocked at the door in the gate, and a girl named Rhoda came to open it. When she recognized Peter’s voice, she was so overjoyed that she ran back inside...
17.       She was so overjoyed, ran back inside.
18.      ...she was so overjoyed that she ran back inside to tell everyone that Peter was standing outside in the street. They will tell her that she has seen a ghost. 
19.      They didn’t believe her. Another thing again! They did not believe her. “You’re out of your mind,” they said.  He knocked at the door in the gate, and a girl named Rhoda came to open it.
20.      Come! It is like you are drunk. Are you mad? Are you out of your senses? Peter that must have been murdered and buried; Is that the person you are telling us about? Where did you say you saw Him?
21.      Come and see Him standing at the door. They said, “You are out of your mind. You are out of your senses. You are crazy.”
22.       When she insisted they decided, “It must be his angel. They must have killed him.”
23.       It must be Peter’s ghost, because they believe that angels are ghosts. Visible ghosts o. so, ghosts are visible. Ghosts are visible. Ok. Ghosts are human beings.
24.      Meanwhile Peter continued knocking. When they finally went out and opened the door, their surprise knew no bounds
25.      He motioned for them to quiet down... He beckoned them to calm down. Do not scramble or behave disorderly, for there are testimonies. I have had an encounter, an experience that can never vanish away till eternity. Personal!
26.       He motioned for them to quiet down and told them what had happened and how the Lord had brought him out of jail. “Tell James and the others what happened,” he said—and left for safer quarters. LB
27.      NOW YOU BELIEVE THAT ANGELS ARE HUMAN BEINGS. ANGELS ARE GHOSTS. GHOSTS ARE HUMAN BEINGS.
28.      What can you call this one? Give this one your one interpretation and then tell us where He has been hiding all these years. From where did He reveal Himself?
29.      You see why studying many books will weary you down. Concerning writing of books, there is no end. [Ecclesiastes 12:12]
30.      And the conclusion of the whole matter is this one thing, which if you have done it, you have fulfilled the whole God’s requirements and there is nothing between you and eternal life. Nothing between you and your God.
31.      That is the simplified Message. The summary of the Holy Qur’an, the Talmud of the Sanhedrins, the Torah, the Bible, the Mystic books. This is the summary.
32.      THE FULFILMENT IS HERE. HE HAS COME ACCORDING TO TIME. HE HAS COME ACCORDING TO PROPHECIES. HE HAS COME ACCORDING AS IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE VOLUMES OF THE BOOKS CONCERNING HIM.
33.      So it has been in every dispensation. Your own is not a different dispensation at all. God has been here. I affirmed it from the very beginning.

Seeing we have this Ministry, we faint not. Christ has now spoken to us. But in time past, He use to speak to His people through the prophets. But in our day, He raised a Vessel, a Black Flesh like us, His own begotten Son, who knew Him, to speak to us. And He became the express image of the Living God.
HAVING THIS MINISTRY, WE FAINT NOT; Preached on Sunday 24th July 1994; Pg. 26 vs. 41

Why should we contest
 with the world?
1.          You see, Easter is not a good thing. You watch birthday, it was this same Herod that celebrated his birthday. You know what happened that day.
2.          He took his junior brother’s wife for a wife and John the Baptist said, “No! It is an abomination. There are too many women.” The most beautiful is yet to be born, even till now. The most beautiful woman is yet to be born.
3.          The most handsome man is yet to be born. Even the richest man is yet to be born. Better times lie ahead. The best vehicle is yet to be manufactured. The best mansion is yet to be erected. Do you believe it?
4.          Cast your mind back. See the picture of your village when you were young and then, see the present picture of your village. Begin to see what your village will look like 20 years to come. I hope I am making sense.
5.          John the Baptist cried against the evil the man was committing. Herod was not happy, and that lady was committed to becoming the king’s wife. So the thing became a vexation on the land, with nobody to speak out because the king was involved.
6.          The man of God took it upon himself to cry out against it, morning and night, ceaselessly until Herod was troubled beyond measure.
7.          One day, Herod fixed his birthday, invited everybody, friends and well-wishers, served them with every amount of drink and wine, food and every other thing.
8.          Then according to the custom of the Jews, when the king vows a vow before the general public or secretly, he must redeem it. He must. If he fails to redeem it, he will pay with his own life. That is the tradition.
9.          The Bible said that the king’s heart was merry. He looked at that lady who was vying to be the queen in the palace. He said, “My lady, come and dance before me.” The lady danced to the admiration of everybody. [Matthew 14:3 – 11]
10.      He said, “Ok. Hug me and request only but one thing. As is our tradition and custom, as is our law, just request one thing. I must redeem it or else my life is involved.”
11.      The lady looked up and looked down, but did not know what to request for. She went out with the mother, conferred with the mother, “Mama, I am confused. You know we are poor, but this king is very rich. Do I tell the man to build a mansion for you or buy a horse? Mama, please help me. I do not know what I will request.”
12.      The mother said, “Are you stupid? How do you think you will be the queen in this palace when John is still talking the way he is talking? Don’t you know that what you will request for is the elimination of your greatest known enemy who will hinder you from occupying that seat as the queen?”
13.      The daughter said, “John the Baptist?” The mother replied emphatically, “Yes!”
14.      The Bible said, “Without hesitation, she ran back to the king and said, ‘O king, live forever. You said I should make one single request. Now, I have come.’” The king said, “Present it. I will get it done immediately.”
15.      She replied, “I need nothing but the head of John the Baptist, and I do not only want to hear that he was beheaded. I want to see his head in a tray and you hand it over.”
16.      The Bible said, “The king stood up from the throne, looked towards the heavens and bowed before the earth and said, ‘This is very grievous, but nevertheless, according to the laws of the Jews, I will give you John’s head in a tray.’”
17.      To celebrate birthday, the king ordered two guards to enter the guardroom, where John was arrested and kept and then came back according to instructions, handed over to the king, a tray containing the head of John the Baptist.
18.      Birthday present to a lady because of the throne, and the Bible said, “The king handed the tray over to the lady for examination and confirmation so that she will be very sure that the head was that of John the Baptist.”
19.      After confirming it, she ran to the mother and said, “Mama, it is done.” The mother said, “You are now the queen.”
20.      Birthdays! Birthday ceremonies! Easter ceremonies! Pagan feasts! We must be careful about them. If there is another ceremony I will add that is dangerous, it is wedding ceremony.
21.      Hear Me very well. In the wedding ceremony, the most fearful side of it is the bachelor’s eve. I hope you are getting what I am saying. Bachelor’s eve precedes the wedding day.
22.      It was instituted by Samson the Great, the son of Manoah. [Judges 14] Riddles and jokes! Riddles and jokes! Samson had a secret hidden, and promised heads of human beings, if anybody should succeed in revealing the secret.
23.      And he posed it to his in-laws. The in-laws did everything to get the secret revealed, but no way. They ran to their daughter who happened to be the wife.
24.      “O daughter, remember you are our own. See what is at stake. Look at the promise of the king. If you must enjoy this marriage, it is this night that the price must be paid. Can you please reveal that secret to us, for we are of the opinion that your husband loves you and he hides nothing from you?”
25.      The Bible said, “The lady replied, “This is a grievous request, but nevertheless, to make sure you are pleased, here are the secrets.”
26.      They now went to the king, “O king Samson, the great man of God, one man that defeats nations, we have discovered the whole thing. Look at what the whole thing stands for.”
27.      The Bible said, “The man bowed his head and said, ‘O! No human being born of a woman should have known this if not my wife. And there is no one, even the Almighty will not reveal it. This revelation has come from my wife. I am finished. So I am going to shed blood.’”
28.      Remember the case of that same Samson and Delilah. [Judges 16] Remember the warnings the parent gave, “Do not go! Do not go! Do not go!” The first one and even the second one, “Do not go! Do not go!”
29.      Remember the persuasion of Delilah. Remember the persistent resistance of Samson which later failed because a certain area was touched.
30.      LET US BE VERY VERY CAREFUL WHILE HANDLING EARTHLY FEASTS. THE BEST WEDDING IS THE INVISIBLE MARRIAGE UNION WHICH TAKES PLACE BETWEEN CHRIST AND THE CHURCH IN THE AIR, IN THE ASTRAL BODY, IN THE THEOPHANY BODY WHERE ALL OF US SHALL DINE WITH HIM, TO PART NO MORE! THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT WEDDING.
31.      It is not this your wedding gown, but look at the wedding gown I am talking about [The Original Body] where the Bride and the Bridegroom will put on the same uniform.
32.      It is not a situation where one is wearing suit and the other one in an overflowing gown. THE UNIFORM MUST BE ONE. IF YOU MISS THAT WEDDING, YOU HAVE MISSED IT ALL.
33.      Somebody sang it in a very amazing way.
34.      SONG: I am expecting the wedding day. The LORD will wed us. Alleluia shall be our language. I am expecting the wedding day. The Lord will wed us. Alleluia shall be our language.
35.      Alleluia is our heavenly language. Alleluia is our heavenly language. Alleluia is our heavenly language. Alleluia is our heavenly language.
36.      THE CLOUD IS HERE
37.      Are you cold? It is in the Book of Revelation. When the Saints shall be gathered from East to West, North and South, surrounding the throne. Then they will have one common language. Alleluia shall be their language.
38.      Begin to have the vision. You travel from here to London and the first person you will meet will be Bro Victor Nnachor, what will you say? Alleluia! That is if you meet him as a friend and not as an enemy. You cannot shout Alleluia to an enemy. It goes to a friend. Salutation of friends. Alleluia!
39.      How many are expecting the wedding day? The LORD will wed all of us. Then Alleluia shall be our language.
40.      Let us not kill ourselves because of minor minor minor things that are common even with the heathens. Why should things that trouble the heathens trouble us? These things that are giving us night mares, these are the same things the heathens go after. Where then lies the difference?
41.      So, while we have come to the era of marriage, and this era of marriage, you can verify from My family altar, My Message is always there, REMEMBER THE DAYS OF NOAH. REMEMBER THE DAYS OF SODOM AND GOMORRAH. REMEMBER WE ARE NOW IN THE DAY OF THE SON OF MAN.
42.      This is because what is happening here is a sign from above. Am I making sense? Bro Ben Okezue! Are you here? [He answers, “I am here sir!”]
SONG: On the wings of a snow-white dove. He sends His pure sweet love. A sign from above. On the wings of a dove
43.      THE LAST SIGN IS HERE. They went about marrying and being given in marriage like the heathens. They were doing their businesses as usual like the world. They were building their houses.
44.      They were doing everything normally like other people, but they forgot the hour they were in. The flood came and swept them away.
45.      But there was one man who found Grace and that Grace told him to make preparations for an escape hut, batcher, for the saving of his family.
46.      The same way, they were doing those things forgetting the hour they were in, unknown to them, fire came from above and ravaged all, save one [Lot] who found Grace and escaped with the two daughters.
47.      Let us be careful. Did God promised these things will be happening in our midst? Yes! We are at the concluding side of the Ministry and at this concluding side, you see marriage, you see things we could not achieve before, they will all be achieved now.
48.      “But be very careful”, the Voice said, “Otherwise your hearts will be over-charged with merriments, surfeiting, partying. Every budget will be how to make a flamboyant outfit, a flamboyant outing that will attract the whole world.”
49.      Often times we will be showcasing wealth as if we are competing with anybody in the world. Let us be careful. Let us face those things that are necessary. Let us go for what we need and not what we want, for what we want is endless, but what we need is limited. Our inability to separate our wants from our needs pile unnecessary pressure on us.
50.      So, whatever you want to do, do it, but forget not the hour we are in.
  
What is the sign? ...“Elohim back in the Bride.” Elohim is greater than God. How many know that? THE ELOHIM EXISTED EVEN WHEN THE WORLD WAS WITHOUT FORM. Elohim is the Self-Existing One, The All-Sufficient One, One who dwelt when there was nothing created. But God is an object of worship. The Elohim became God when He began creation. That is why we worship Him because He created us. What is more? You can never worship something that is not higher than you. Every person is calling upon his own god and we are calling upon our own God. God is an object of worship. Which God are you worshipping? I am worshipping the Elohim. .... You heard him say, “I have come down because you invited Me. I have heard your plea. I am grateful and I am delighted. I have come down among you again. I am sitting down even here now with you.God goes to Church every day. He lives in you. He lives in the Church. You are the Church…”

WE OUGHT TO TREMBLE WITH FEAR
1.           Hebrews 4:1 – 6. Apostle Kelechi, remember I promised I will not be in the pulpit. Good! But I am not in the pulpit. I am watching over the pulpit. I am watching over the pulpit.
2.          THE CLOUD IS HERE.
3.          It pays to worship under the Cloud. If we gather and He is not here with us, our gathering is useless nonsense, because unto the LORD shall the gathering of his people be.
4.          When we gather and His Spirit is still there with us, then we have Fellowship with Him and with one another. Then the blood of Christ can now cover us and cleanse us of every guilt.
5.          Hebrews 4:1 – 4 Although God’s promise still stands... Unshakable. Heaven and earth can pass away, but not the promise of God. Has He promised anything and He has never done it? Wait for it.
6.          It is for the appointed time. It can never be overdue by one second. Once the breadfruit is ripe and due, it must fall to the ground. Every night must give way at daybreak. After the rain cometh sunshine.
7.          Although God’s promise still stands —his promise that all may enter his place of rest... That is, if all may believe. His place of rest. His promised eternal life.
8.          ...—we ought to tremble with fear... We ought to do what? Do you know that Saint Paul told the Corinthians to work out their salvation with fear and trembling? [Philippians 2:12] We ought to tremble with fear. Why? There must be something.
9.          ...—we ought to tremble with fear because some of you may be on the verge of failing to get there after all.
10.       Did it say all of you? Some of you may be on the verge of failing to enter there and you may not know it. Some of you may be operating outside the revealed Faith of the Son of Man and yet, you knoweth it not. That is why, from time to time, pause and think. From time to time, call yourself to order.
11.      From time to time, re-examine yourself with the Faith of the Son of Man which is the revealed Christ of your day, for you are going to be judged by His doctrines, by His teachings, by His instructions and commands, whether you like it or not.
12.      Nobody here will be judged by Moses or William Branham. The prophet made it clear that on that day that the Elects will stand behind their messengers from the four corners of the earth, starting from the creation of the whole world.
13.      IF THE ACCUMULATED JUDGMENT OF GOD SINCE THE DAY ABEL WAS KILLED, WILL BE REVEALED UPON THE PEOPLE OF THIS GENERATION, WHO THEN DO YOU THINK I AM? WHO DO YOU THINK I AM?
14.      Were you there when Abel was killed in the Garden of Eden? Why must your generation join in accounting for the iniquities you never committed?
15.      Why are you going to be held responsible, not for your own crime alone but for the crimes that were committed when you never came into existence, for which cause the Son of Man has come to show you the way out?
16.       The accumulated judgment of God will be revealed upon the heads of the people of this generation. True or false?
17.      If you go to the Book of Enoch chapter 1, you will see it. you go to the book of Jude, it is there. [Jude 14 – 15] Even Peter revealed it there.
18.      This is My Beloved Son, Mine Elect I have chosen. Hear ye Him. Do you know that it was Enoch that Got it and Saint Luke repeated it? [Genesis 5:24, Luke 9:35]. Enoch was here. Seventh generation prophet. From Adam, you count seven. [Jude 14]
19.      If you count Jesus’ appearance from Adam, it is over 5,000, but Enoch was there. How many can tell Me reasons why Enoch never saw death and became number one that never saw death? Who can give Me the reasons why Elijah never tasted death but was translated out?
20.      ...—we ought to tremble with fear because some of you may be on the verge of failing to get there after all.
21.      Any name there? Some of you! I only know Myself. You know yourself. You know what is happening in you. you know what is informing your decisions. You know what is informing your character.
22.      THERE IS NO UNBELIEF WITHOUT A CAUSE. THERE IS NOT DISOBEDIENCE WITHOUT A CAUSE. And whatever may be that excuse, do you think it is plausible in the sight of God? Do you think that excuse is reasonable enough to convince God?
23.      That is why I love the Scripture that said, “I am righteous. Have you convinced God to say so?” When Job confessed his innocence and righteousness, God confirmed it.  [Job 1:8, 2:3]
24.      ...—we ought to tremble with fear because some of you may be on the verge of failing to get there after all. Anybody can fall within the ambits as some of you.
25.      For this wonderful news—the message that God wants to save us—has been given to us just as it was to those who lived in the time of Moses.
26.      Have you heard? Another Message? The same Message. This Message, that God wants to save us was the same old Message that was given to the people, even in the days of Moses.
27.      Remember Moses asked for God’s grace. Somebody said, “Moses is under the law.” Who told you Moses was under the law? God never gave Moses law. God gave Moses grace. Everywhere Moses said, “Jehovah, if I have found grace in your sight.” [Exodus 33:12 – 13, 16 – 17, Exodus 34:9]
28.      And concerning law, God said, “Because of your hard-heartedness of the people of the Jews”, God gave them laws that do not give life and they perished. Because of their hard-heartedness, God was forced to give them laws that contains no life which no human being can obey and they perished. Is it not Scripture?
29.      That is why, when Saint Peter was talking in condemnation of those who were condemning the Gentiles and saying that they must obey, at least, some of the Jewish laws, he said, “Are you wiser than God? Why are you trying to give them this burden which neither our fathers nor ourselves have ever obeyed, for no one can obey them?” [Acts 15:10]
30.      GOD HAS SAVED US THROUGH CHRIST FROM THE IMPOSSIBLE ROAD TO HEAVEN BY SENDING CHRIST WHO HAS COME TO SHOW US THE TRUTH MAKING HEAVEN POSSIBLE. HE CAME WITH GRACE AND TRUTH.
31.      The law never came by God. The law came by Moses. Grace and Truth came by the Lord Jesus Christ, and therein is life.
32.      So, we are children of faith and we shall be blessed with faithful Abraham. We are not children of the Books. We are of the Faith. We are of the Grace.
33.      Some are on the verge of failing to enter. —we ought to tremble with fear because some of you may be on the verge of failing to get there after all.
34.      For this wonderful news—the message that God wants to save us—has been given to us just as it was to those who lived in the time of Moses.
35.      But it didn’t do them any good because they didn’t believe it.
36.      They did not believe the Message. It was so simple to them that they thought that a simple message could not save them, for they believed in big big messages accompanied by big rituals which the common man cannot even provide.
37.      But going by this way, it then means our morals will be lowered. Infants, nonentities, sycophants are likely to be embraced. That was why when the Gentiles who knew not God believed, the Jews were offended, “So He is now equating me with the heathens and the uncircumcised Gentiles.
38.      This is because they were claiming God to be their birthright, but God did not claim them to be so.
39.      Some of you are on the verge of failing to enter. The same message went to them in the days of Moses but it profited them nothing. Why? When they heard it, they did not believe.
40.        They didn’t mix it with faith... They never mixed it with Faith, for without faith, it is impossible to please God. Whoever that must come to God must have the Faith that God exists. True or false? [Hebrews 11:6]
41.      He is. He exists. And without faith, it is impossible to please God. And the Bible went further to say in Roman 14, “Anything that is not done by faith is sin.” It is unbelief.
42.      You can crosscheck it in your book of Romans 14. [Romans 14:23] That is why your action reveals your faith.
43.      Because I believe, that is why I preach and that is why I act. I believe. For that reason, I preach it. I propagate it. I act on it.
44.      IF I AM ARRESTED TOMORROW BECAUSE OF MY FAITH, I WILL BE THE HAPPIEST MAN, BECAUSE EVERY MAN IS CALLED FOR THE DEFENCE OF HIS FAITH. I gave it to you at the initial stage. YOU MUST BE READY TO ANSWER EVERY MAN THAT WILL ASK YOU THE HOPE THAT IS IN YOU.
45.      You do not need to say, “Go and call the Son of Man.” No! “I will bring the Pastor” or “Women are not permitted to preach.” They are permitted to answer questions.
46.      “Do you believe that God is a human being?” Yes! “How?” Let me show you. I am answering your question.
47.      But to carry Bible and begin to move about, “Let me go and tell them” from pillar to post, No! Sister, sit down! Mind your kitchen. Take care of your children.
48.      Should anybody ask you the hope that is in you, be courageous. Say, “Thank you. bring your Bible. Sit down.” This is because I have been taught. Even if you do not have the Bible, the Bible is already in you. Use nature. Use everything.
49.      Anyway, I do not need to go there because the promise is always there that when you are being asked questions, think not on what you are going to answer, for the spirit of God will put word into your mouth. That is, if you are operating in the Spirit of God. If you are not on the verge of falling away.
50.      Just like yesterday. I went to buy receipts. I ran into the hands of Deeper Life members that knew Me. And those that heard about Me but never knew Me. The rain started showering. It became another opportunity.
51.      Heaven came down. The old man and the wife, and the whole children [grown-ups] and their neighbours. They were even enquiring about Brother Mike Emmanuel. I told him yesterday.
52.      They came with their exercise books, “So sir we are perishing.” I said, “Thou sayest it.” Any topic I opened, I showed pictures and they started revealing what is happening in their midst. They condemned their church, condemned their members, condemned their general superintendent and even believed that he was responsible for his wife’s death. They told Me about many that had left. I said, “They left and started their own. They are on the same platform.”
53.      One came. She said she was on the other side of the road, behind Diamond Bank. It was happening. She came with the son, defying the rain. I never knew. She just rushed in. She knelt down, raised her hands.
54.      And I remembered it this morning when I was coming to the gate and the security ran out. I saluted him, but instead of greeting, he just came in front, knelt down and raised his hands. Even going out, no matter how I say it, he will just say, “Daddy touch my head.”
55.      Even the one Bro Ojiakor brought from Enugu said, “Daddy, I do not want your money. Just lay hand on me. Touch my head.” By revelation, they got the desires of their hearts.
56.      Without faith, you obtain nothing from God. The moment you are limping between two opinions, you are not too sure whether you are on the truth; You are not too sure whether you are wrong; You are not too sure whether this is the promised Son of Man; You are not too sure whether if you miss this one, another one may not come, you are limping between two opinions.
57.      You must come to a point where you take your own decision, by saying, “I am sure and certain.” And once you are sure and certain, even if we excommunicate you, the conviction is still there.
58.      And that conviction will never allow you to wallow away, where God’s Grace cannot reach and bless you. That is why I am of the opinion that no seed of God wanders away where God’s grace [God’s love] cannot reach and bless that person, for His hands are not too short that He cannot save or reach you there.
59.      The hand of God reaches all the ends of the earth in one second, if you know who He is. But when you wander away from the truth, you land in the congregation of the dead, and when you land there, the hand is short because your iniquity has made His hand short and weak.
60.      Watch all these weak weak elements we are harbouring. What makes you weak? You handle the Word of God with unclean heart and you make it ineffective. When your heart is not united with Christ, make sure you do not quote any promises of God or allow anything God to come to your business.
61.      You are operating like the seven sons of Sceva who went to cast out demons in the name of Jesus the Christ Paul has preached and they were devoured. They were devoured. [Acts 19:13 – 17]
62.      We ought to tremble with fear for some of us may be on the verge of failing to enter the promised rest, although the promise is still there, unshakable, waiting for time. This is because that promise is tied to time.
63.      But it didn’t do them any good because they didn’t believe it. They never believed it, like many of you here do not believe. That is why it can never do you any good. It may even be to your condemnation.
64.      This is because, if I had not come and spoken to you, you will never have any condemnation. Now, I have come, Live, revealed Myself, revealed My New Name and have spoken to you, you have no cloak for your iniquities. No cloak at all. No hiding place.
65.       But it didn’t do them any good because they didn’t believe it. They didn’t mix it with faith. For only we who believe God... Only who? For only we who believe God can enter into His place of rest.
66.      Alleluia! For only we who believe God. And “not will”. We have entered, never to come out. And that to live is Christ. To die is great gain. [Philippians 1:21], for in Him I live. In Him I move. In Him I freely exercise my being. [Acts 17:28], for I do everything according to the will of He that sent Me and He is pleased. Not after the counsel of my own will, but after the counsel of His own will. [Ephesians 1:11]
67.      If you have come to that standard, now watch what Saint John said concerning Apostle Gaius, it will be your portion. [3 John 1:1 – 8]
68.      You win God’s commendation, not for any other thing but for the fact that you are living according to the standard of the wholesome doctrines of Christ given to you. Not minus. Not plus. Is it not true?
69.      Then I will be pleased when I see you prospering physically, materially and at the same time, you are prospering spiritually. You are standing on two feet. So you cannot be easily moved.


Those that have been rebelling against the Son of Man all these years, ridiculing Him, mocking Him, laughing at Him, conspiring against Him, even planning to kill Him, do they know that they are going to meet their doom on that day when the Son of Man will come in judgment against them to declare, THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS? Tell Me where you will appear? ……If these things are not for you, why am I in your midst? Why did He send Me? Did He send Me to come and pamper you? It is now that you will realize the essence of the Son of Man abiding with you, even now.

I HAVE COME TO
RESTORE THE WORD
1.          You are going to be like a tree planted by the riverside, whose leaves are evergreen. I said, evergreen.
2.          But if your leaves are withered, and there is still life in the stem, leaves can come out. Is every tree that has shed its leaves dead? If your leaves are dried and shed to the ground, and there is still life in you, you still have the opportunity to regain your position.
3.          A musician sang thus, “Oraifite My fatherland, will you bury me while I am still alive? Will you bury a living human being? Do not bury a living human being.”
4.          A tree is not dried up until the back is peeled with a machete and observe that the peeled area has no green, lively and fluid gushing out from that stem. If not the plant will still produce leaves. It is now left for the plant to produce leaves.
5.          But there is a level it will get to, the tree will decay from the roots. A tree is not dead because the upper parts are dried up. A tree is dead only when it dries up from the roots underground.
6.          A tree that is not yet dead underground is still alive. You may cut the trunk and still see new branches sprouting from the stump. Why? The tap root that is sustaining the tree is still alive.
7.          SO THERE IS HOPE FOR EVERY DRY BONE IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION. THIS IS THE VALLEY OF DECISION. THERE MIGHT BE DRIED BONES THERE.
8.          Ezekiel saw them in the valley. [Ezekiel 37:1 – 14] If you happen to be one of them, your song will be a good one, “LORD save me from the valley of death. LORD save me from the valley of death.” There is hope for the dry bones. For the bones shall rise again.
9.          SONG: Dry bones shall rise again. Dry bones shall rise again. Dry bones shall rise again. Dry bones shall rise again. O Jehovah is able to do all thing, I know He’s able, Dry Bones shall rise Again.
10.      Samson the Great had only but one succor, one comfort, “Although the eyes have been plucked, the hair lost, shaven, he was hopeful that the hair must come back again.” Why? The soul is still alive.
11.      Job was able to make it, for he is sure and certain, “Though maggots have taken away the flesh, the strength was no more, but the souls was alive.”
12.      He vowed a vow, “I will never open my mouth to curse God. I can never forget the good days. Why should I curse God now, because calamity has befallen me? What if it is a test of my faith?”
13.      Even when the woman came persuading him to blaspheme, calling herself wife, he [Job] said, “Have you joined those silly women. Get away from here. You enjoy pleasures. You reject suffering. [Job 2:9 – 10] Do you not know that when you suffer with Him, you will be exalted with Him? You want to reap where you never sowed.”
14.      Another one came, “Look at! All your wealth, gone! Children, gone! Everything, gone! You are a sinner.”
15.      He [Job] said, “Shut up! Did God say so? Did He send you to reprimand me? Even if I sinned, will He send you? I am not a sinner and I have never sinned. I know what I am passing through. Keep your eyes open, for before you and I, my eyes shall see the Lord again. [Job 19:25 – 27 vs 16] Even if I die, I am meeting Him again here, standing on this earth, not as my enemy, but as my friend. But I still believe I am coming back. When I bounce back, I will regain 10-fold my lost glory – My Lost Glory – All my foes will cover their faces in shame, and the name of my God will be exalted from generation to generation unto those that fear and honour him.”
16.      That is the succour of one that is convinced of his stand in Christ He knows his status. It is personal. You do not need to come to tell me that I have backslidden or not. Is it your business? Do you know my covenant with God? Were you there when He chose me? Be mindful of your own. When He called me, you were not there.
17.      But you are here because I bid you come, so that from among you, I will make My selection. That’s all. Many are called, few are chosen. [Matthew 22:14]. Some are chosen for salvation. Some are chosen for any other thing.
18.      Be afraid, tremble with fear, for some of you may be on the verge of failing to enter that promised eternal rest, but we that have believed and anchored our volition in Him, that He can never disappoint them, we have entered.
19.      That is why, when you come in, nothing will separate you from the love of God, not even death, not calamity, not sickness, not even want, for these things started here on earth and they will pass away with time. [Roman 8:35]
20.      Tell Me, is there any rich man that does not die? Is there any great man that does not die? Is there any building that cannot collapse? Tell Me! But there is only but one thing that is eternal, and that One that is eternal is here. He is here.
21.      When our Brother the Bishop who came from Port Harcourt was picked to make an impromptu address, he went into the Book of Torah, the Holy Qur’an. He went to the Book of Enoch, only to reveal one. From the two Books, coupled with the Scriptures, only but one man was revealed. THE SON OF MAN. Even His appearance and His countenance.
22.      Let Me tell you. I do not need to be a prophet. If I happen to be a woman, I know by your own language, I am a beautiful woman, and in the same way, a handsome man.
23.      If you like believe it. The beauty on My face attracted My wife. She could not resist it. Brethren, is it a lie?
24.      Listen to Me. I do not need to say it. There was one photograph she picked at home [black and white]. She lifted it up and that was when we were married newly. We had about four children.
25.      She lifted the picture and screamed, “Daddy, you are the one Ijeoma resembles. Daddy, is this the way you look when you were a child? So, this was the way you grew up. Here you look exactly like Ijeoma.” It is not because the prophet said it. I AM THE EPITOME OF BEAUTY AND HANDSOMENESS
26.      We that believe have entered into that rest. That is why My own admonition this morning is, IF YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT NUMBERED AMONG THESE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BELIEVED AND HAVE ENTERED INTO THAT PROMISED REST, YOUR LIFE IS STILL AT RISK.
27.      WHATEVER YOU ARE CELEBRATING, YOU ARE INCREASING YOUR RISK OF FALLING AWAY, FOR YOU MAY NOT KNOW THE TRICK THE DEVIL MAY BE USING TO DELUDE AND DECEIVE YOU, TO DIVERT YOUR MIND AND YOUR EYES AWAY FROM THE REALITY USING SOMETHING THAT IS TEMPORARY, THAT HAS NO LASTING VALUE, THAT CANNOT EVEN GIVE YOU COMPLETE JOY.
28.      So, let us be very careful. Otherwise, because of a morsel of bread, we can sell off our birthright. A morsel of bread! Anything can be a morsel of bread. And that is the point where God labels people fornicators. Is it not true?
29.      The Bible said, “Do not be a fornicator like Esau who, because of a morsel of bread, sold his birthright.” Is it not Scripture. [Hebrews 12:16]
30.      Because of little thing, you compromise your holy and high calling. You become a stammerer. You deny God. You deny the truth. You deny the Brethren. Because of a little thing. Simply because you have not believed to the saving of your souls.
31.      If I believe to the saving of My soul, I count My life as nothing, for whoever that values his life must lose it. But whoever that is ready to lose his life for Christ’s sake must surely gain it.
32.      May be because of fear, they cannot confess Christ. In many ways, we become fornicators by compromising the truth that is evidently set out before our eyes, and yet we come before God and dance.
33.      In the presence of God, we are all Saints. But when God is not there, we reverse to our old nature.
34.      Let Me just give you the Grace. The grace God gave us said, “THE GRACE OF GOD FROM THE SON OF MAN HAS ARRIVED TO REVEAL EVERY MAN’S NATURE. IF YOU ARE A VULTURE, THE WORLD WILL KNOW. WHATEVER YOU ARE, THE WORLD WILL SEE IT.
35.      That is what grace of God has come to do, for the law is filled with suppression of feelings. The law is filled with eye-service. So, if you are of the law, whatever you are doing is mere eye-service. You are on the periphery. You are not grounded. You are not rooted. You are not even balanced.
36.      For only we who believe God can enter into his place of rest. He has said, “I have sworn in my anger... God said, “I have sworn in My anger.” What provoked Him to anger? It must be those that are here who are objects of provocation. Is it not true?
37.      The Bible said, “In the church, there are some who are objects of anger whom God is enduring with much patience, waiting for the day of their destruction.”
38.      God can never ask them to leave the Congregation. He will befriend them more and more. He will be enduring them, waiting for the day He will destroy them.
39.      How I wish Apostles are here who will help Me by rehearsing those Scriptures once again. You read them from your Bible. You read them from your Holy Qur’an, and I will even show you more of them in the Book of Enoch, especially the Hebrew Book.
40.      This is because two Books are there. One for the Gentiles and one for the Jews. The whole of the Book of Enoch, the Ethiopian Book is directed to the heathens, Gentiles. The Slavonic one is directed to the Arabs. Three groups of people: The Slavonics, the Ethiopians and the Hebrews. The Hebrews, directing to the Jews. Three books in one Book, and it is just on everything there.
41.      So, do not think I am crazy. I am not crazy. From the very word go, I never minced words in telling you who I am and what I have come for. I never said I came for everybody, No!
42.      And there is nothing in this life nor in the life to come that you will promise Me that will make Me tell lies on such a delicate matter, giving you the impression that you are getting saved when you are in the region of the lost. God forbid!
43.      I will rather tell you to go and pray, peradventure there will be a remedy on the last day. That is my way of consolation. Keep on praying. Keep on soliciting favour. Do not draw back. May be towards the end, there may be light at the end of the tunnel, but I do not know. “I do not know. May be”.
44.      He has said, “I have sworn in my anger that those who don’t believe me will never get in,”... Can never enter My rest. You do not believe with your mouth alone. Do you speak fish into the soup pot? No!  
45.      If you say you believe and stop there, the Devil believed, but he trembled out. True or false. Lord I believe! The Devil believed too, but show forth your works. Let Me see your character.
46.      He has said, “I have sworn in my anger that those who don’t believe me will never get in,”...
47.       If God swore in His anger that those that do not believe will not enter His rest, who can cancel it Is it clearer to you now? GOD CAN DO ANYTHING FOR YOU BUT CAN NEVER GUARANTEE YOU SALVATION IN UNBELIEF.
48.      You come in, you receive signs and wonders, you receive miracles, you receive healings, you receive food, you receive money, relief and every other thing. These are material things. Even heathens do more than that.
49.      IF I AM A GOOD MAN TO YOU BECAUSE OF ALL THOSE NONSENSES, IT THEN MEANS YOU DO NOT KNOW WHO I AM. FOR ME TO BE A GOOD MAN TO YOU AND BE YOUR FRIEND, YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN PERSONAL CONVICTION THAT I AM THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS THE WORD OF ETERNAL LIFE.
50.      AND YOU ARE SURE AND CERTAIN, AND THAT IS THE REASON WHY YOU HAVE EMBRACED ME, FOR WHEN I CAME, I TOLD YOU, “I DID NOT COME HERE TO PROMISE YOU MIRACLES, THIS AND THAT. IF YOU RECEIVE THAT, PRAISE GOD. LET NOBODY EVER JUDGE ME BY THAT. I HAVE COME TO RESTORE THE WORD AND TO RESTORE ETERNAL LIFE.”
51.      IF YOU ARE COMING TO ME FOR ETERNAL LIFE, HE SAID, “FOLLOW ME. NO COST OF DISCIPLESHIP. FOLLOW ME! IF I MOVE FORWARD, YOU MOVE!”
52.      The Angel entered his cell and set Peter free, and the Angel was in front, with Peter following.
53.      SONG: Follow you Saviour every day by day. Nothing will happen to you if you follow Him. The Devil is roaring all over the world. Son of Man is my Saviour and in all.
54.      Follow God day by day and nothing shall by any means harm you. Be it known to you that the Devil is moving to and fro the whole earth, looking for who to devour.
55.      If you believe it, it shall be unto you according to your faith. This is because, to all that believe, all things are possible. ALL THINGS means ALL THINGS, NOT MINUS.
56.      He you are following, first of all introduced Himself and said, “I AM THE GOD OF ALL FLESH. IS THERE ANYTHING IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO DO?” And the Bible answered, “With God all things are possible.” [Matthew 19:26] And God Himself replied, “All things are possible to them that believe.” [Mark 9:23]
57.      But to them that do not believe, all things can never be possible, for they are selective believers. ONLY WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS WHAT WILL BE POSSIBLE. WHAT YOU DO NOT BELIEVE, WILL IT BE POSSIBLE?
58.      THOSE WHO ARE THE REAL BELIEVERS, IT IS NOT OF THEIR OWN MAKING. IT IS GOD THAT HAS GIVEN ALL OF THEM BELIEVING HEARTS TO BELIEVE THE TRUTH.
59.      THIS IS BECAUSE, IF GOD REFUSES TO GIVE YOU BELIEVING HEART, YOU WILL BE LIKE THE PEOPLE GOING TO CHURCH. SEE MANY OF THEM HERE AND THERE, GOD WILL NEVER REVEAL HIMSELF TO THEM.  IT MUST BE HERE, IN THE PLACE WHERE HE HAS CHOSEN TO PLACE HIS NAME. FROM HERE, HIS WORD GOES FORTH.
60.      He has said, “I have sworn in my anger that those who don’t believe me will never get in,” even though He has been ready and waiting for them since the world began.
61.      Even though God has been waiting, God has been ready, waiting. The salvation was finished and God announced, “IT IS FINISHED!”
62.      The work had already been finished and everything made ready. He has been readily waiting and bidding you to come, but those that were bid to come refused the invitation.
63.      Those that accepted they will come gave excuses, but as many as accepted, believed and followed, to them belongeth the Kingdom of God. That is what He told you in the book of Luke, “FEAR NOT LITTLE FLOCK. IT IS YOUR FATHER’S GOOD PLEASURE TO GIVE YOU THE KINGDOM.”
64.      SONG: Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. [Isaiah 41:10]
65.      We that have believed have entered His promised rest, but God vowed in His anger, “All that have refused to believe in Me....” How do you believe in God? Only one thing! By believing in Him whom He has sent. [John 6:29]
66.      HAS HE SENT ANYBODY IN YOUR DAY? WHO IS THAT ONE? WAS HE PROMISED AFORETIME, CONTAINED IN THE VOLUME OF BOOKS WRITTEN CONCERNING HIM? HAS HE REVEALED HIMSELF AFTER CONCEALING HIMSELF FOR MANY THOUSANDS OF YEARS? AT LAST, HE IS HERE! AT LAST, HE IS HERE!
67.      He has made Himself manifest. He has said, “Father, I have manifested yourself to your people and they have believed. That thou has sent Me. I have given them Thy Word and they have believed. Unite them by Thy Word, for Thy Word is Truth, that they may have fellowship with one another even as I am in Fellowship with you, that they and us might be One.”
68.       THE SON OF MAN IS IN DIRECT CONNECTION WITH THE FATHER 24 HOURS [OF THE DAY]. Alleluia!
69.      He vowed in His anger. Who will like God to vow in His anger against himself, against you that as long as I live and God liveth, you will never cross? Who will like to receive that statement? You see why you should be mindful of what is being said about you. Do not take it light.
70.      If the Son of Man shall set you free, who will lay hands on you again? [John 8:36] Let the Almighty ask Me why I allowed that person to continue. I will tell Him, “I will manage him. I will manage him. They are manageable.”
71.      “But the other one? Why do you not want that one?” I will answer, “I have tried this one here for years, but there is no way we can cope. I cannot cope with that woman, nor with that man, nor with that young man, nor with that girl.
72.      No! I have tried to tame them, but they refused all My attempts. So, of a truth, they will spoil many things there. No!”
73.      “You mean they are not coming?”  “Let them remain there and burn like chaff.” If I am here to put an end to iniquity, why crossing iniquity again? Why giving free ticket for iniquity to cross over. Am I stupid?
74.      Do you want Me to go to the cross again? You are wasting your time. I am not here. I am not here for the cross. I have paid the prize in the first advent.
75.      I will place the sacrifices of bulls and bullocks [animals] which could not take any sin away. I came. I replaced all.
76.      And then now, look at Me again, THE RESURRECTED BODY WITH FULL AND COMPLETE SALVATION, AND HEALING IN MY HANDS.
77.      YOU CANNOT CRUCIFY THE SON OF MAN A SECOND TIME. IMPOSSIBLE! YOU DO NOT HAVE THE STREGTH. IT IS YOUR TURN NOW TO DIE. IT IS YOUR TURN TO DIE. Pay attention!
78.      He has said, “I have sworn in my anger that those who don’t believe me will never get in,” even though He has been ready and waiting for them since the world began.
79.      We know He is ready and waiting because it is written that God rested on the seventh day of creation, having finished all that he had planned to make.
80.      Even so they didn’t get in, for God finally said, “They shall never enter my rest.” Yet the promise remains and some get in—but not those who had the first chance, for they disobeyed God and failed to enter. LB
81.      Somebody who had the first chance, First Fruit disobeyed God and this is a lesson. The Bible said, “All these things are written in the Scriptures for our learning, for our warning, lest we repeat the same mistake and what befell them will befall us.” [1 Corinthians 10:11]
82.      Who will like to labour in vain? Who will be disappointed in the end? Is it one that does not know the truth? It is one that knows the truth but could not abide in the truth. Was it not why Satan sought a way for repenting? But there was no way again, for he has been cast out.
83.      What of Judas? He sought a way. He repented but he could not pay back the money he collected. He became the first that joined the Devil in hell fire and so many have been trouping in gradually, reserved, waiting for the White Throne Judgment.
84.      BUT THOSE THAT ARE IN CHRIST ARE ALREADY JUDGED, SET ASIDE, DISCHARGED AND ACQUITTED, FOR THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION TO ANYBODY THAT IS IN CHRIST AND WHO DOES NOT WALK AFTER THE DICTATES OF THE WORLD, BUT HE WALKS AFTER THE DICTATES OF THE WORD OF GOD.
85.      SO WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN HIM WHOM GOD HAS SENT, CONFIDING, RELYING, DEPENDING, TRUSTING, OBEYING, THERE IS NOTHING ELSE LEFT. IS THERE ANY OTHER THING LEFT?
86.      LET ME TELL YOU. I DO NOT KNOW WHY PEOPLE BELIEVE LIES EASIER THAN TRUTH, TRUSTING THINGS THAT CANNOT SAVE THEM. TRUSTING IN THINGS THAT CAN NEVER SAVE THEM.
87.      SOME EVEN TRUST IN THEIR RICHES. SOME TRUST IN THEIR MARRIAGES. SOME TRUST IN THEIR CHILDREN. SOME TRUST IN ONE THING OR THE OTHER. THINGS THAT CANNOT SAVE THEM.
88.      IF I WERE YOU, I WILL FIND MY WAY INTO CHRIST AND PAVE A WAY FOR MY FAMILY TO COME IN.
89.            Remain in your Sanctified Estate in Him Eternally.
