Restoration to love and mercy


Preached On Wednesday, 14th August, 2019 @ Household of God Enugu By Pastor wisdom Odoemena “Truth has no substitute”

And who believe in (the Qur'ân and the Sunnah) which has been sent down (revealed) to you (Muhammad Peace be upon him ) and in [the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel), etc.] which were sent down before you and they believe with certainty in the Hereafter. (Resurrection, recompense of their good and bad deeds, Paradise and Hell, etc.). They are on (true) guidance from their Lord, and they are the successful.
THE HOLY QUR’AN, SURAH 2:4 – 5
                                                  1
THE ONLY THING THAT CAN TAKE YOU TO PARADISE IS CHRIST’S LIFE
1.           I am going to move in a way that everybody sitting down here will understand me, both young and old. I will use every language to make sure I carry this Message home.

2.           This is because the importance of coming to the presence of God is so that our lives will change. There is no need for us to gather here and at the end of the day, we do not have anything that shows that we came to the house of God.
3.           How you will know that the Word of God does not take any effect in the lives of the people sitting down in the fellowship is that after the fellowship, when you follow them to their homes and you see some of them in groups, what forms their discussion.
4.           WHAT FORMS THE DISCUSSION AFTER HEARING THE WORD OF GOD WILL DETERMINE IF THAT WORD OF GOD WILL HAVE AN ABIDING PLACE IN YOUR HEART OR NOT. BRETHREN, AM I CLEAR?
5.           I am reading from the message titled, FLEE FROM IDOLS VOL. 1; Page 47 from verse 40. “Remember, before you change a man’s mode of worship, you must change his mode of thinking, his mode of reasoning, his mode of seeing things. Until these things change, the mode of worship cannot change.
6.           YOU MUST CHANGE WHAT? [1] YOUR MODE OF THINKING, [2] YOUR MODE OF REASONING AND [3] YOUR MODE OF SEEING THINGS. UNTIL THESE THINGS CHANGE, MODE OF WORSHIP CAN NEVER BE CHANGED.
7.           Remember the topic, “RESTORATION TO MERCY AND LOVE.”
8.           YOU MUST, FIRST OF ALL, ACKNOWLEDGE WHOSE PRESENCE WE ARE IN HERE, BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO WORSHIP HIM. IF YOU DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, YOU CAN NEVER WORSHIP GOD RIGHTLY.
9.           God said that most of us are worshipping God with zeal, but without knowledge. Having the zeal of God without knowledge. It will make you come to fellowship, partake in whatever we are doing, but if it comes to God, you are not a part of God. It is one thing to come to fellowship and another thing to be with God.
10.        God said that it is one thing to follow God and another thing for God to know that you are following Him. Most of us take much time in participating in church activities.
11.        CHURCH ACTIVITY IS NOT A RECIPE; IT IS NOT A GUARANTEE OF YOUR ETERNAL SALVATION.
12.        I want to bring it down to everybody sitting down here. That you come to Church or you partake in whatever we are doing does not guarantee that you are going to paradise. If you put your hand in the scripture, it is not there. [1 Corinthians 13:3]
13.        THE ONLY THING THAT CAN TAKE YOU TO PARADISE IS CHRIST LIKE LIFE. THIS IS THE MESSAGE WE ARE PREACHING.
14.        HOW DO YOU TAKE GOD? THE WAY YOU TAKE GOD DETERMINES THE WAY YOU WILL TAKE HIS WORD. I am coming to something.
15.        Before you can change a man’s mode of worship, you must change his mode of thinking, his mode of reasoning, until these things change, his mode of worship cannot change.
16.        In the time of the Apostles, when they believed the truth, God said it purified their senses, it redefined their hearts, their eyes of understanding got illuminated.
17.        And that is what I want to do here today. I never said, we have not been worshipping God. No!
18.        I want to take us back to the original Faith. I want to take us back to our first love. I want to point us back to where we first made our mistakes and what God is demanding from us now.
19.        The Bible said that their eyes of understanding were not illuminated because they were beclouded by their evil ways.
20.        They were what? Beclouded by their evil ways. Secondly, they were worshipping idols in their hearts.
21.        They were doing what? Worshipping idols in their hearts. Yet they were still coming to God, but they had things they placed in their hearts as their own god.
22.        And God said that whatever thing you place first in your heart, that is your god. I am coming to something.
23.        Follow me to the Message titled Rehearsal VOLUME 1; Preached on Sunday, 31st December, 2017; Page 72 from verse 28 through 29.
24.        Do you know what it takes to worship? If you watch God in the beginning, after introducing Himself, He gave a human being charge: “You will love the Lord your God with all that you are made up of, all your heart, all your life, all your strength, everything that is in you. You worship Him, you love and you appreciate Him.
25.        Can we now see what worship is all about?
26.        He said, “The second is like the first; love your neighbours as you love yourself. This is the fulfillment of the whole law for there is no law against it. Love is the summary. It is the totality.
27.        God said that you will be judged in the last day using one thing as a parameter. THE EXTENT YOU LOVE GOD AND THE EXTENT YOU LOVE YOUR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS. Are we now understanding?
28.        WORSHIP DEMANDS THAT YOU DO WHAT? LOVE GOD AND ALSO LOVE YOUR FELLOW HUMAN BEING.
29.        Let us know what love is all about. 1st Corinthians chapter 13 from verse 1, Living Bible.
30.        If I had the gift of being able to speak in other languages without learning them and could speak in every language there is in all of heaven and earth, but didn’t love others, I would only be making noise.
31.        If I had the gift of prophecy and knew all about what is going to happen in the future, knew everything about everything, but didn’t love others, what good would it do? Even if I had the gift of faith so that I could speak to a mountain and make it move, I would still be worth nothing at all without love.
32.        Even though you have the gift of faith without having love, God said, it will take you nowhere. Look at it. God said that it is the totality. It is the summary of all that we are preaching and this is what is lacking in many Households.
33.        That is why I titled this Message, RESTORATION TO LOVE AND MERCY IN THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD AT ENUGU. ...Even if I had the gift of faith so that I could speak to a mountain and make it move, I would still be worth nothing at all without love.
34.        If I gave everything I have to poor people, and if I were burned alive for preaching the Gospel but didn’t love others, it would be of no value whatever.
35.        It will be of what? No value. Even though you are killed for the sake of this gospel without having any iota of godly love in your heart, God said it will be what? Of no value.
36.        From verse 4 now, look at the qualities of love. Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud,
37.         never haughty or selfish or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love does not do what? Demand its own way.
38.        THE MOMENT YOU TRY TO HAVE YOUR WAY IN THIS FELLOWSHIP, IT GOES TO SHOW THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE THE LOVE OF GOD IN YOUR HEART.
39.        Love does not demand its own way. It is not irritable or touchy. It does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do it wrong.
40.        It does not do what? Hold grudges or hardly knows when others do it wrong. Amen. Am I speaking to lively souls at all?
41.        IF YOU CHECK WITHIN YOURSELF AND THESE QUALITIES ARE NOT IN YOU, IT GOES TO SHOW THAT YOU ARE A WHAT? A COUNTERFEIT. IT GOES TO SHOW THAT YOU HAVE NO PART IN WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE.
42.        It does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do it wrong. It is never glad about injustice, but rejoices whenever truth wins out. Love does what? Rejoices when truth wins its way.
43.        Whosoever that is angry when the truth is being preached or whosoever that is resenting the truth, does that person have the love of God in his heart?
44.        Little children, can you understand me? IF YOU LOVE SOMEONE, YOU WILL BE LOYAL TO HIM NO MATTER WHAT THE COST IS. No matter what the cost is.
45.        That is where God is still blaming us till today because we claim to love God. The Bible said, “Love Him with all our hearts, all our might and all that you have within you.”
46.        We claim to love God and yet, there is a limit to the instructions of God we obey. There is a limit to the instructions of the Elders God has appointed to the salvation of our souls, which we obey.
47.        Most of us have carved out our own favourite Ministers, our own favourite Elders. No! It should not be that way.
48.        We all are preaching the same Message and we are going to the same place. OUR AIM IS TO GO TO PARADISE.
49.        If your aim is not to go to paradise, you leave us. So we must have the same spirit, the same mind and the same purpose. Halleluiah.



And (O Children of Israel, remember) when We took your covenant and We raised above you the Mount (saying): "Hold fast to that which We have given you, and remember that which is therein so that you may become Al-Muttaqûn (the pious -- see V.2:2). Then after that you turned away. Had it not been for the Grace and Mercy of God upon you, indeed you would have been among the losers.

QUALITIES OF LOVE
1.           Follow me to the Bridal Compendium page 231, Paragraph 3. Nothing gives strength more than love. Love strengthens. When you are depressed and your brother comes your way manifesting true love, strength must surely come in. IT IS THIS LOVE OF GOD THAT WILL PERFECT THE BRIDE FOR TRANSLATION.
2.           It is what? This love of God that will do what? Perfect every one of us. Evangelist Ben was preaching and said, “I believe that I am talking to my brethren.”
3.           God said, No! Not everybody sitting down here are your brethren. You do not know the purpose why they gathered here.
4.           Everybody has one reason or the other why he or she is here. As for me, I came to worship God. Every other thing that follows worshipping God is what I am going to get.
5.           But God said, “If you are here and you are afraid of going to hell, you must go to hell.” The first reason why we come here is to do what? Worship God because God exists.
6.           It is this love that will perfect the Bride for translation. This is where translation is hidden.
7.           I am not the one saying it. It was gotten from the Message titled, Despise not the days of small things, Page 107 verse 28. This is what? Where translation is hidden.
8.           Follow me to the Bridal Compendium page 231, Paragraph 4. Please take note everybody. Husband sand wives, brothers and sisters, little children please take note.
9.           Faith is made manifest in love and Faith is perfect in love. Your strength is the love of God among the brethren. Outside it, you have no strength.
10.        Follow me to the Bridal Compendium page 231, Paragraph 6. Let others preach love; let us manifests love, for LOVE IS ONE OF THE DIVINE ATTRIBUTES OF GOD. WHERE THERE IS LOVE, THERE IS NO DISPUTE.
11.        Where there is love, there is no what? No dispute. Where we read in the Scriptures, it said, you can hardly recognize where your brother errs or where he goes wrong. [1 Corinthians 13:5]
12.        Why can’t we assume the nature of THE SON OF MAN? What is that atrocity you will commit, and you still come to THE SON OF MAN and He will not listen to you?
13.        For the mere fact that you and I are still living, we are still alive today in spite of all that we have done, we still woke up from the bed today, does it not show the love of God?
14.        If this gift of life was given to our fellow human beings, I can because of what Brother Lucky will do to me and I will not make him to wake up tomorrow.
15.        But this is God that we offend on a daily basis and yet, His love keeps projecting. Why can’t we follow this pattern? And we all claim that we are waiting for translation.
16.        Let me tell you. God said that translation is narrowing down day by day and I stand here in his name to affirm that to be truth. This is because, on a daily basis, our families are completely derailing from that which God wants from us.
17.        1 Corinthians 13:4. QUALITIES OF LOVE. Amplified Version.  Love endures long and is patient and kind; Love does what? Endures long.
18.        and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vain glorious,... It is not what? Boastful. Love is not hurtful. Love is not boastful.
19.        IT IS LOVE IN YOUR HEART THAT WILL LET YOU KNOW THAT WHATEVER BLESSINGS THAT GOD GIVES YOU IS FOR YOU AND FOR YOUR BROTHER.
20.        WHATEVER THING GOD IS BLESSING YOU WITH, CHECK IT VERY WELL, IT IS FOR YOU AND YOUR BROTHER.
21.        But if that godly love is not there, you will not see it that way. If God gives you money to buy a car, you will definitely not carry your Brother when you see him on the road. If God gives you money to build a house, you can never accommodate your Brother in your house.
22.        Check whatever thing God is blessing you with, in one way or the other, He is involving you and wants to bless you so that you can reach out to your Brethren. And this is where we miss it.
23.        If the love is not there, how can you see me in error and correct me? Pastor Ejike, if you see me in error, and love is not there, can you meet me or come and tell me?
24.        What he will do instead of leaving there, is to begin to tell others, “See what he is doing.” But if that love of God is in his heart, as a minister, he will walk up to me, “See this. What you are doing is not good sir. Please, can you change?”
25.        This is our problem in this Household, Elders, am I saying the truth? [The Elders collectively answered, “Yes sir”.]
26.        The moment we begin to address this, the better for us. God called them LITTLE, LITTLE THINGS THAT DESTROY THE FAMILY.
27.        God said that it is not that big sin which you have committed; It is not that heavy sin you painted in your head, but it is that little one which you have ignored, and which you feel is nothing.
28.        I am coming to something. Bridal Compendium, Page 231 Paragraph 6...Where there is love, there is no dispute, there is no court case. And without love, no home is built.
29.        Any home that is built outside love is likened to a house that is built on sinking sand. Practice one love. Once love projects, every fault is ignored. I am not the one saying this.
30.        Once love projects, every fault is ignored. There was a Message I was reading, and I began to thank God. The titled is, Understanding human nature.
31.        That was where God x-rayed the different qualities to show you that He can live with the worst human being in the whole world. He said, “Accommodate that Brother in love, show him love.”
32.        In the Message coping with a rebellious child, God said, “That your child you have been flogging, you have been hitting, change! Change! Have you tried the other way? Have you tried going down on your knees?
33.        It is the love of God that will make you to go down on your knees and commit your Brethren, your Ministers into the hands of God for God to use them as veritable instrument because without them here there is no hope of salvation for you.
34.        Let me read the Message titled, “As it was in the days of Noah, as it was in the days of Lot, mystery revealed; Page 68 verses 41 through 45.
35.        What we are doing is checking those things that will make us to stop halfway. What we are doing is what? Checking those things that will make us to stop halfway.
36.        What is more? Check the many things you are considering. They are things that will stop your journey midway. Things that will make you regret even appearing here on earth.
37.        REMEMBER LOT’S WIFE. Which means, if we are not careful, [if we are not] watchful, [if we are not] mindful, truly speaking, what happened to her can happen to [anybody]. What happened to who? What happened to Lot’s wife can happen to anybody.
38.        In spite of God’s mercy, who decided to drag us. With His own hands, He led us out because of His mercy, His loving kindness. Yet, we could not avail ourselves of that opportunity. It is very difficult to save human being.
39.        It is what? Very difficult. This is because the more God stretches His hands to save man, the more the man goes neck-deep in sin.
40.        Remember the Voice that said that we should not joke with the Evening Light Revelation; that it is going to be very, very fast; that it will wrap up in a very fast way, and that we should not joke with it. That God wants to pick His last Elect now.
41.        That is why He has given us Ministers that can help him to make sure that the Message can go to every nook and cranny of every home. That is why we are not afraid of anybody, but we give you what? The truth as it was ordained and revealed to us.
42.        Follow me to the Message titled, “Let he that thinks that he is standing, be careful lest he faLls; Page 175 verse 42.
43.        ...Let he that thinketh he standeth be careful lest he falls. We are being sustained by grace and grace alone.
44.        Not by your power, not by you might, not by your knowledge, not by the ministry [or the position you occupy]. God has just decided within Himself to uphold you. Halleluiah.
45.        God has just done what? Decided to uphold you, neglecting your flaws. There was a day He [THE SON OF MAN] was praying in Jerusalem, He said that He is standing in the gap, presenting all the Elect of God; that God should do what? Reject all the accusation the devil is leveling against them on a daily basis.
46.        What kind of love is that? Yet, your Brother will do something to you. Most of us, if we can check round this household, some Brethren do not greet one another after Fellowship.
47.        There are families that still do not talk to themselves in this Household till today because of what they did to you last seven years or last ten years. What kind of nonsense is that?
48.        Yet, you are waiting for translation. You are waiting for Paradise. Is this the sanctified condition God is requiring from us? Is it the sanctified condition?
49.        God said that when He said you should remain in your sanctified condition, He is talking to those that have fully believed. Also, to the elect of the devil, they should also remain in that their own sanctified condition.
50.        This is because the same way God is sanctifying you, devil is also sanctifying you. You can never be empty at any point in time. You are serving the interest of one God or the other. Either the interest of the Son of Man or the interest of the devil. That is pure truth.
51.        If God can ignore all these things on a daily basis, and you still remember what your Brother did to you in the last five years; or the Minister will indict you from the pulpit, all of a sudden you become cold towards him and he becomes an enemy.
52.        WHERE DID THIS SPIRIT CREEP IN FROM? WE ARE SAYING NO TO THAT SPIRIT TODAY.  THIS IS THE END OF THAT SPIRIT TODAY. THAT IS WHY THIS MESSAGE IS TITLED, RESTORATION TO MERCY AND LOVE.
53.        I want you to go home in your family to reduce or break it in a way that everybody will understand, so that coming here on Sunday, it will be Fellowship on a fresh note.
54.        GOD SAID THAT ANY DAY WE SEE OURSELVES ALIVE, HE IS GIVING US THE GRACE TO AMEND OUR WAYS AND NOT CEMENTING OUR UNBELIEF.
55.        A time is coming and we are going to note all these individuals and all these families and we will have nothing to do with them. You can never be a spot in our midst.
56.        This is because when you are doing this, you are reducing the love God has for us as a household. Let us know the point where water entered our boat.


He it is Who sent down As-Sakinah (calmness and tranquillity) into the hearts of the believers, that they may grow more in Faith along with their (present) Faith. And to God belong the hosts of the heavens and the earth, and God is Ever All-Knower, All-Wise. That He may admit the believing men and the believing women to Gardens under which rivers flow (i.e. Paradise), to abide therein forever, and to expiate from them their sins, and that is with God, a supreme success,

GOD’S STRENGTH IS MADE MANIFEST IN OUR WEAKNESS

1.           Let he that thinks that he is standing, be careful least he faLls; Page 175 verse 43.
2.           If you are the one holding the rock, you will get tired. Thus, be careful the way you use the word, “I know where I am holding God.” For if you know where you are holding God, you know where you are going to fall.
3.           The day you know where you are holding God, “I know the God I am serving; I know what He can do. God cannot say this; He cannot do this about me”;
4.           The moment you know that which God cannot do, the moment you can differentiate it in your life, God is saying, that is the point you will fall. THIS IS BECAUSE GOD’S STRENGTH IS MADE MANIFEST IN OUR WEAKNESS.
5.           That is why He makes sure He puts us on our knees. He makes sure that you will fall and you will rise, so that at the end of the day, you can never take the glory to yourself.
6.           This is because if He allows you to keep standing, you will boast, “I made it. I did it on my own. I was able to do this.” How can you do that? How can you pride yourself?
7.           That is why the moment He will see you succeeding, He will place one or two things to show you that you are also a human being, and that He is the one holding you.
8.           That is why He said, “Watch, when I am praising you, the devil is also listening to it anytime God is commending you. I am saying this to every family, to every Minister and to every person that cares to listen to Me.
9.           The moment God is commending you, the moment God is appreciating you, the moment God is praising you, the devil is also hearing it.
10.        In the mysterious quote He gave, He said, “I give a man position for two things. [1] To expose you or [2] To use you.” He said, “Using you is 2. I can use you to bring in the children of God and throw you out. And I can still use you to achieve My own good will.”
11.        Can you see that this is a very mysterious God? This is a Faith, a Movement whereby if you are dropped, you will never know. You will still be coming around, doing what you are doing.
12.        It will take one that is rooted and grounded in the Faith to tell you, “Go back. See where you failed. You are holding unto your past glory.” I get am before is no property.
13.        I used to be God’s favourite. I used to be this and that. It is “I used to.” What God is concerned about is, “What are you now?”
14.        The same thing He is saying, “Ignore what you were doing in the past. You have been this. You have been that. Do not allow it to weigh you down. Focus on who you are now. What do you want to become?” Amen.
15.        If you are the one holding the Rock, you will get tired. Thus, be careful the way you use the word, ‘I know where I am holding God’, for if you know where you are holding God, you know where you are going to fall. Can a man hold God? No! For God is a big mountain you cannot hold.
16.        However, can God hold a man? Sure! You are like an ant in the hollow of God’s hand. If you know where you are holding God, you know the point where you are going to fall away.
17.        If you know where you are holding God, I will say, “That is the day you started digging your grave.” I know the God I am worshipping. I know He can do this. I know He can do that.
18.        If you know where you are holding Him, your hand must surely get weak. What is more? Once your hand gets weak, you must surely lose grip.
19.        Is it not true? If you continue stretching your hand by lifting it up, if you stretch it for over 30 minutes, your hand must become weak and you must do what? Bring it down.
20.        But if he is the One holding you, can you get tired? It is not your strength. He is the One holding your hand. He can lift it from now till next year and you can never do what? Get tired.
21.        So, if God is not tired of holding us, why are we tired of holding God. Why are we tired of exercising the Faith and the teachings he has given to you and me?
22.        God said that our problem is that we carry this Message too far. When you hear the Message, you think it is a very big Message. Love, Love, Love. Do you know how many years this Message has hung on this wall? Nobody knows but God said, “This is where translation is hidden.”
23.        BRIDAL COMPENDIUM Pg. 233 Paragraph 4. I am still reading about Love.
24.        I am leading you in love. I want you to work with Me in love. AND WHEN YOU WALK WITH ONE ANOTHER IN LOVE, LEADERSHIP IS MADE EASY.
25.        When you do what? Walk with one another in love, leadership is made easy. Nobody will be greater than the other again. And that is why God created the Fivefold Ministry.
26.        The Bishop has his work. The Pastor has his work. The Apostle has his work. So that the Body of Christ will continue to grow, and so that there will not be friction whatsoever.
27.        IN EVERY HOUSEHOLD WHERE THERE IS RIFT, WHERE THERE IS DISPUTE, WHERE PROBLEM EXISTS, IT THEN MEANS THEY DEVIATED FROM THAT ORDER WHERE GOD HAS PLACED THEM.
28.        There is no longer harmony in that household. Somebody is sowing some seeds of discrepancy in the Household which is still germinating in that same Household.
29.        Isaiah 55:6 – 7
30.         Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call upon him now while he is near. Do what? Call upon Him. As we are preaching this Word, do not say let me go home and change. We want this change now.
31.        As we are sitting down, as this Message is touching your heart, let me start breaking that fallow ground in your heart. Resist all those ways. That sin that easily beset you, God said you should do what? Drop it now.
32.        Let men cast off their wicked deeds; let them banish from their minds the very thought of doing wrong!
33.        Let them do what? Banish! Did God say remove? Yet, something you removed, you can still bring it back. But when you are banished, you cannot come back. God used the word “BANISH”.
34.        Let them do what? Banish every thought of doing evil. Are you the one fomenting it in your family, as the husband or as the wife or as the child? Wherever you are, God said you should put an end to that nonsense today.
35.        In every household where there is no love, there are three things that are evidenced in that household: [1] HATRED [2] GOSSIP [3] SLANDER. I say number one is what? HATRED. GOSSIP and what? Slander.
36.        Instead of coming to me or coming to your Sister, you start talking evil about him or her. Can you imagine? See one that calls himself the child of a Bishop. See the person that calls herself the daughter of an Apostle. See the person that calls himself the son of a Pastor.
37.        What then makes you a Brother? It then means you are an enemy and no longer a Brother. But God said, “There is no fear in love.” Brethren, am I correct? There is no fear in love. True love drives away all fears.
38.        It is that love in your heart that will tell you, “Brother, please go and do this.” or you call him on the phone, “Do this or Do that.” But if it is not there, hatred will start. You will start avoiding him.
39.        The next thing is that you will start preaching the message of hate into your children.
40.        I called the Pastor and I was telling the Pastor my experience. That I was with a Brother and the son of a Minister came to me and greeted me and did not greet the Brother.
41.        I then asked Him why he did not greet the Brother. He said that his father said he behaves like a fool. Pastor, you know the person I am talking about. He told me that his father said that he behaves like a fool.
42.        It might be true that what the Brother might have done that day may have shown that he behaves like a fool, but there are things we should not say in front of our children. There are somethings we should not say in front of our wives as Ministers.
43.        I am not going to be speaking. Whatever I am preaching, I am laying credence to the Word. If it is not the spoken Word of God by the Son of Man, it will be in the written word.
44.        I am not showing you or saying anything of my own. Whatever I am saying must be backed up by the Messages to show you that what I am saying is a very serious issue that must be addressed today.
45.        BRIDAL COMPENDIUM Pg. 260 Paragraph 4. Any man of God that listens to the voice of his wife on Church issues, especially on doctrinal matters, must surely make shipwreck of his calling.
46.        If you do not know as a Minister, it is a very heavy sin in the sight of God for you to divulge a secret. This is because whatever that pertains to doctrine or pertains to preaching, it is meant for men.
47.        God spelt it out from the first day of the World. It is meant for men. I know my age when God was handling the case of a Pastor that stayed out of the house beyond 7pm and the wife was asking him, “What kept you in Benjamin?”
48.        The man started explaining to the wife, telling her the details of all the meetings, which now started generating hatred in the heart of the wife of the Minister and in the hearts of the children against those families that God was telling the Ministers about.
49.        Have you seen the implications? It is a grievous sin in the sight of God. For me to respect you as a Bishop Sir, and call you on the phone to tell you that there are somethings I want to discuss with you which I have noticed in the Household, I have acknowledged your office.
50.        And I am also a Minister. If what I am saying is wrong, you should be the one to address me. But if I start getting correction from your wife, do you think I will take that correction serious? This is because it had been discussed.
51.        It is no longer a doctrinal issue. It is no longer a doctrinal issue. If it were a family issue, I would have come to your house and in the presence of your wife, I will direct it to you and we will discuss it as a family.
52.        But the moment I pick my phone or I put it into writing, for we judge with THE SON OF MAN.


So be patient (O Muhammad). Verily, the Promise of God is true, and let not those who have no certainty of faith, discourage you from conveying God's Message (which you are obliged to convey).

CHURCH ORDER (1)
1.           BRIDAL COMPENDIUM Pg. 261 Paragraph 4. Any man of God that listens to the voice of his wife on Church issues, especially on doctrinal matters, must surely make shipwreck of his calling. That is why the Bible enjoins them to learn in silence and never to usurp authority over men.
2.           They should do what? Learn in silence. The ministry God assigned to them is their family. You are the Pastor of your children. If you go home, you are the Pastor. You are the Bishop.
3.           But when it comes to the things of God, God said, “BE SILENT AND OPEN YOUR EARS.” Anyone you do not understand, go to the Pastor.
4.           I will still show you that God has given us everything in this Faith. We have what we call CHURCH ORDER.
5.           I was reading this Message titled LEADERSHIP and God said, “Once you have a problem as a flock, the first port of call is your Pastor.” He is the first person you are going to appeal to.
6.           If you appeal to the Pastor and you notice that he did not handle your case well, you address the matter to the Church Elders.
7.           If you address the matter to the Church Elders and you still see that your case is not well treated, you appeal to the office of the Apostle in that Household.
8.           And when you appeal to that office, God said you should be ready for whatever you are going to hear. This is because if you do not take whatever you hear from that office, it will be your destruction.
9.           Let me show it to you in the Message, for I am not quoting from my brain.
10.        LEADERSHIP; Preached on 22nd March 1997; Pg. 50 vs. 45 – 47  There are a lot of reasons why you should go through all those channels. If you go to your Pastor and you feel that you did not get the type of justice you desire, then you can approach the Elders in the Church. They will counsel you. If you are not satisfied with their own counselling, then you will commit it to the Apostle;
11.        But if you run straight to the Apostle, let me tell you, it is very dangerous; You put yourself in trouble because there will be no room for appeal.
12.        If the Pastor tries your case and he does not satisfy you, you can appeal to the Elders. The Elders will try it and then allow you to appeal to the Apostle;
13.        But then, if you jump these two offices and run straight to the Apostle, you will hear, “THUS SAITH THE LORD.” You are going to receive, “THUS SAITH THE LORD” on that matter.
14.        So, the Apostle in every Household is the one standing in the stead of God in that Household. True or false Brethren?
15.        God told us that He knows why He ordained every office. He knows The reason. The Pastor cannot be the Apostle, Bishop and everything. No! The Bishop cannot be the Pastor and the evangelist. No! 
16.        Your left hand cannot do everything. If you feel your left hand is not important, remove it. God knows why he put all these things in order, to make sure that the Body of Christ remains One and also remains perfect.
17.        BRIDAL COMPENDIUM Pg. 261 Paragraph 5.Every man of God must know that women are grouped together with little children, and not counted in the Church even from the Old Testament, although they play very important roles in the Church.
18.        BRIDAL COMPENDIUM Pg. 261 Paragraph 6. A man of God in his backslidden estate or compromised estate, is higher in the sight of God than the most spiritual woman on earth.
19.        A man of God in his compromised or backslidden estate. You are the one that said he is compromised. It is not He that called Him. You are the one saying it.
20.        This is because the angle you are seeing a man of God is not the same way God is seeing him.
21.        Romans 14:4  Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? It is their own Master who will decide whether they succeed or fail.
22.        It is what? THEIR OWN MASTER! It is what? THEIR OWN MASTER! It is what? THEIR OWN MASTER!
23.        ...who will decide whether they succeed or fail. YOU ARE NOT TO BE THE JUDGE BRETHREN. HAVE WE SEEN WHERE WE ALL STARTED MAKING OUR MISTAKES? HAVE WE SEEN WHERE WE ALL STARTED MAKING OUR MISTAKES?
24.        And they will succeed because the LORD is able to make them succeed. And they will do what? SUCCEED! And they will do what? SUCCEED!
25.        I WILL SUCCEED. Brethren, if you are a Minister, say it to yourself, “I WILL SUCCEED BECAUSE GOD IS ABLE TO MAKE ME SUCCEED.”
26.        God said that Words are spirits. We should recreate our world, your environment with the Words of your mouth. Do not cry, but speak.
27.        He said those He has called to become the sons and daughters of God, He gave them the power [John 1:12]. There is a power that is associated with you, being a child of God. That is why the Scripture says that those that know their God do exploits [Daniel 11:32]. Amen.
28.        LEADERSHIP; Preached on 22nd March 1997; Pg. 82 vs. 37 – 38. ...Take heed over the church of the Lord Jesus Christ which I have made you an overseer. [Acts 20:28] You see the Church?
29.        Christ purchased the Church with His own precious blood. WHEN YOU ARE MADE A MINISTER IN THIS CHURCH, DO NOT MAKE YOURSELF A TYRANT. This Message was preached on 22nd March, 1997.
30.        WHEN YOU ARE MADE A MINISTER IN THIS CHURCH, DO NOT MAKE YOURSELF A TYRANT.
31.        Pastors, did you get the Message? I am not the one saying it. I am still reading from this Message, LEADERSHIP.
32.        A Pastor of a Church must be accessible to every member of the Church at all times. Nobody should come to you and you tell him to get his ticket before he will see you.
33.        And the Pastor of the Church is the father of that Church; You [must] know all your children and you should be able to call them by their names.
34.        You must do what? Know all your children. So, when the Pastor says you should sit down and not go to Jerusalem, that he wants to monitor your families, he is correct. It has been written clearly. 1997.
35.        And the Pastor of the Church is the father of that Church; You [must] know all your children and you should be able to call them by their names.
36.        You [must] know their characters. You [must] know those that are filled with the spirit. You know those that are not yet filled with the spirit. In other words, you must try to make yourself all things to please them.
37.        To the weak, you must become weak so as to help them. You must make yourself all things so as to please them. To the strong, you become strong so a s to help them.
38.        If you do not adjust [by these measures] by and by, the whole flock must scatter. The whole flock must do what? Scatter.
39.        When somebody comes with his complaints, place yourself in the shoes of that person.
40.        When you see somebody that has fallen into a ditch, and he is trying to come out, and you gather stones and start throwing them at him, do you actually want the person to come out? [Do] You want the person to die there?
41.        Pastor sir, was it not my call with you, sir? You know, things happen for a reason. I told you this on the phone, and your wife said, “People call me. That the problem is me. That after every Fellowship, some group of people call me on the phone to tell me how Fellowship went, and from that way, I will start painting you as a bad person.”
42.        I did not tell you. I kept it to myself. I heard it from your wife. I want to say it here so that everybody will hear me.
43.        I am going to read something. When I was telling you this, I never read this Message. I sent you a message on Monday night to tell you, “Please I want to be on the pulpit on Wednesday.” True or false sir? [The Pastor confirms it to be true.] Sit down sir.
44.        When you see somebody that has fallen into a ditch, and he is trying to come out, and you gather stones and start throwing them at him, do you actually want the person to come out? [Do] You want the person to die there?
45.        We are called to give such people a ladder, from where they can climb up. When he climbs up, then you can now flog him very well. Do not flog him inside the pit. Get him out and then flog [him].
46.        If you flog him inside the pit, it is a criminal act because he is not feeling comfortable there. He knows his life is in danger there, and he wants to come out.
47.        But when you have tried him many times, and you discover that he is not making any effort to change, then you can no longer help him out.
48.        If it has become his manner; his habit to fall into that ditch from time to time, all you have to do is to help him by using a bulldozer to carry enough sand and bury him there. You are the Ministers of the Word. You are what? The Ministers of the Word.
49.        Hebrews 13:17 Amplified Version.  Obey your spiritual leaders and submit to them [continually... And do what? Submit to them continually, and not a situation whereby today, you submit and tomorrow, you refuse to submit.
50.        So, when the Pastor said, “If you are travelling you must call me”, can you now see that the voice is from God? GOD SAID THAT THE SALVATION OF EVERY FLOCK IS DEPENDENT ON THE HAND OF THE PASTOR.
51.        He was giving an illustration. He said, “On that day, Pastor of Enugu, come out with your believers.” He will say, “Are these your believers?” He will be the one to go through the line and remove those that are not his believers because he knows his flock. Because of what? He knows his flock.
52.        The Pastor of Nsukka will stand. The same with the Pastor of Nassarawa. They will examine their flock. Anybody who is not a member of the flock will do what? Be shown the way out.
53.        OBEY YOUR SPIRITUAL LEADERS CONTINUALLY. IN SEASON AND OUT OF SEASON. DO NOT GET TIRED.
54.        Obey your spiritual leaders and submit to them [continually recognizing their authority over you], for they are constantly keeping watch over your souls and guarding your spiritual welfare,...
55.        What? Guarding your spiritual welfare. What? Guarding your spiritual welfare....as men who will have to render an account [of their trust]. [Do your part to]...
56.        Do what? Do your part. We should do what? Do our part, and let Pastor do his part. If we do our part, we will make the work of the Pastor to be very easy. From the place we read, it said, “With love, leadership will be made very easy.”
57.        What is there? CALL ME WHEN YOU ARE TRAVELLING. NOTIFY ME WHEN YOU ARE DOING THIS. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR TRADE, TELL ME. WHEN THE LORD ASKS ME, I CAN GIVE ACCOUNT OF YOU. Brethren, what is difficult in it?















And indeed We have set forth for mankind, in this Qur'ân every kind of parable. But if you (O Muhammad) bring to them any sign or proof, (as an evidence for the truth of your Prophethood), the disbelievers are sure to say (to the believers): "You follow nothing but falsehood, and magic." Thus does God seal up the hearts of those who know not [the proofs and evidence of the Oneness of God i.e. those who try not to understand true facts that which you (Muhammad) have brought to them].
THE HOLY QUR’AN, SURAH 31:58 – 59

So on that Day no excuse of theirs will avail those who did wrong (by associating partners in worship with God, and by denying the Day of Resurrection), nor will they be allowed (then) to return to seek God's Pleasure (by having Islâmic Faith with righteous deeds and by giving up polytheism, sins and crimes with repentance).
THE HOLY QUR’AN, SURAH 31:57

CHURCH ORDER (2)
1.           There is a word I want to get in Living Bible. Hebrews 13:17 Obey your spiritual leaders and be willing to do what they say. For their work is to watch over your souls, and God will judge them on how well they do this.
2.           Their work is to watch over your soul, and note! GOD. Did God say the judgment is committed into your hand? THAT IS WHY GOD IS AGAINST ANY FAMILY THAT DISCUSSES BRETHREN IN THEIR HOMES.
3.           I will repeat it. GOD IS AGAINST ANY INDIVIDUAL, ANY FAMILY THAT DISCUSSES BRETHREN IN THEIR HOMES. IF YOU ARE DISCUSSING BRETHREN, LET IT BE FOR GOOD. LET IT BE FOR GOOD. I SAID LET IT BE WHAT? LET IT BE FOR GOOD.
4.           There was one day I was preaching, I said that why we are doing all these things, crying and beating is because we are going to one place. It is Paradise.
5.           That is why God is clamping down, using everything He can use. This is because He does not want to lose any soul. He said that if it will be possible, He would not want to lose any soul in the world.
6.           He said that we are the ones holding ourselves. That it is in this love that translation is hidden.    
7.           Hebrews 13:17. Living Bible. Obey your spiritual leaders and be willing to do what they say. For their work is to watch over your souls, and God will judge them on how well they do this.
8.           GIVE THEM REASON TO REPORT JOYFULLY ABOUT YOU TO THE LORD and not with sorrow for then you will suffer for it too.
9.           Give them reason to do what?  “Report joyfully about you to the Lord and not with sorrow. So they can report sorrowfully about you. They can report about you to the Lord in tears, and in sorrows.
10.        The Bible said, “Give them reason to report joyfully about you to the Lord and not with sorrow”. Are you trying to tell me that the Pastor will not be happy if you come to this pulpit and sing praises from now till 6:30, and we pray, dismiss and go?
11.        Do you think he will not be happy doing it? Who loves preaching? Even the Son of Man, do you think He is happy talking to us for how many years?
12.        He said that, left for Him, He would have left this world, and there is nothing in this world that gives Him joy again. We are the ones causing Him sleepless nights, headache and problems of every kind.
13.        We are the ones. We are the ones creating these problems upon our heads every day. In the bid to save us, He will keep talking and He will keep preaching.
14.        An Igbo adage says wherever there is much corrections and rebuke, there is a never-do-well there also. Is there peace and we are shouting?
15.        Give them reason to report joyfully about you to the Lord and not with sorrow. Reasons to report joyfully about you to the LORD. Give us reasons. Encourage us.
16.        As I am preaching to you, I am preaching to my own self because we are Ministers in the same Vineyard. 
17.        LEADERSHIP; Preached on 22nd March 1997; Page 86 verse 50 – 51. Pastor, be vigilant. Anyone that is frustrating your honest effort to oversee a church the way Holy Ghost has directed you, please mark that person. After first and second warnings, what do you do? Reject!
18.        Reject that person. 1997! He said, “Pastor, be vigilant!”So, God knows that someone must frustrate this honest effort.
19.        Last two Sundays, God said, “The devil is never happy when he comes to a family where there is peace and unity. That is why, from time to time, he will use one person. He will shoot up one mean fellow.”
20.        Why will I be that mean person, Brethren? God forbid. In the house of God, there are vessels of honour, vessels of dishonour, objects of provocations, objects of happiness, and you choose to be that object of provocation.
21.        “Any how I am, I will go to paradise, God will save me anyhow. It is Grace and Grace alone.”Who told you that nonsense?
22.        Pastor, be vigilant. Anyone that is frustrating your honest effort to oversee a Church in the way the Holy Ghost has directed, please mark that person. After first and second warning, what do you do? Reject!
23.        Mark that Brother; mark that sister that is constituting the stumbling block. He or she does not want to take instructions. He or she does not want to obey.
24.        And since he does not want to take instructions, he does not want others to also take instructions. This is the problem that is happening in Enugu household. DO NOT INVOLVE YOUR BROTHER IN HATING ANOTHER BROTHER.
25.        I cannot be ignoring another Brother because the Brother faulted Chukwudi my younger brother. I will be a fool to see that Brother and ignore him.
26.        Since I have nothing to do with that issue, and there is nothing between me and that Brother, what stops me from expressing my love to that Brother?
27.        You recruit people into your business of hating others. If you are not recruiting, you try to convince.
28.        If you are a mother, you go home, you talk to your children, take them to a corner, give them what they love, give them sweet, give them everything and start preaching your fellow Brethren to them. If they now see the Brethren, they will pass.
29.        It is happening. I said it is happening. In Jerusalem, God had to spot one that did it to an Apostle because the Apostle corrected him.
30.        The Son of man was coming. He greeted THE SON OF MAN and ignored the Apostle. THE SON OF MAN called him back. He is the son of a Pastor.
31.        Brethren are preaching wrong Messages in their homes. That is why He said we should put an end to that nonsense today. Enough of that discussion.
32.        When you remember your Brother, let it be for good. If that person is erring, go down on your knees and intercede for that person. That person is not committing that evil knowingly.
33.        Nobody is given the chance to choose between good and bad and he chooses to do bad.
34.        In the Message SPIRITUAL PARALYSIS, God said “If your eyes of understanding are opened to show you the number of spirits that are following you to make sure that they destroy your good record you have been building all these years.” He said that if it is revealed to you, you will run away.
35.        If you see your brother in error, you will think that he doing it purposefully, for you have talked and you have shouted on him, what do you do?  Go down on your knees. Intercede for that family. Intercede for that Brother. Call them.
36.        Sisters! Mothers! You bring the person close to yourself and talk to that fellow. The Bible said, “Older women should teach the younger women.”[Titus 2:4]
37.        Is it done in Enugu household? Has there been a Sisters’ meeting where the Pastor’s wife will be in charge, and then talk to her fellow Sisters? This is what it should be.
38.        Follow me to FAMILY MENU VOLUME 1; Page 39 verse 10. THE GOOD SHEPHERD: His wife must reflect his character so that she can command respect among the flock.
39.        She must aim at complementing the effort of her husband in raising the flock. She must do what? Aim at complementing.
40.        BRIDAL COMPENDIUM; Page 419, last Paragraph. Any woman that is married to a minister and does not have the revelation of the office the husband occupies is not worthy to be a minister’s wife,...
41.        I stand here to affirm it to be true. This is the basis of the Message where God preached LOOK UNTO ABRAHAM YOUR FATHER AND UNTO SARAH YOUR MOTHER.
42.        He must remain our pattern in all things, whether you like it or not. God said, it is a MUST.
43.        For you [Sisters] to attain this perfect and Divine nature, you must pattern after the wife of the son of man as a Sister.
44.        As a Brother, you must pattern after the Son of Man Himself. There are no two ways about it.
45.        BRIDAL COMPENDIUM; Page 419, last Paragraph. Any woman that is married to a minister and does not have the revelation of the office the husband occupies is not worthy to be a minister’s wife, for there is no way a Minister will make a success of his Ministry without the wife playing an important role.
46.        The Deacons’ wife can you hear me? Evangelists’ wife can you hear me? There is no restriction to these offices. The wife of a Bishop is a Bishop. The wife of an Apostle is an Apostle. You must be able to serve him.
47.        There was a video we were watching and it was the wedding of Afoma. There, Sister Moses was being interviewed and she said, “If I were a man, I will be an Apostle”. The son of Man said, “No. You are supposed to be a Bishop. This is because once God calls a man, He calls his wife.

THE FAMILY OF
A GOOD SHEPHERD
1.           WE ARE LOOKING AT THE WIFE OF A GOOD SHEPHERD, THE WIFE OF A PASTOR, THE WIFE OF A DEACON, THE WIFE OF A MINISTER, THE WIFE OF A MAN OF GOD.
2.           FAMILY MENU VOLUME 1; Pg. 39 vs. 11 – 19.She must aim at helping her husband’s effort in raising the flock. She must appreciate her husband’s responsibilities towards the flock and not constitute a clog on the wheels of progress. 
3.           And not do what? Constitute a clog on the wheels of progress. This is what the wife of a good shepherd does.
4.           You guide your husband, “Do you remember this Brother that is sick. We have not seen him. Let us go and see him in the hospital. Can you remember this Sister that delivered?”
5.           These were the things I was seeing my own mother doing while we were growing up. Only if we can be doing this in our various homes. I was talking to the Pastor on Sunday. I was telling him something.
6.           Evangelist Anayo supports, “We do not do it here. Pastor said, “It is true sir.”
7.           I was talking to the Pastor on Sunday, I told him, look at the mother of Brother Lucky. God made mention of this Sister in Jerusalem.
8.           God even said that this Brother has nothing doing. Everybody played that tape but that area, you used something to block your ears so that you will not hear it. Because that love is not there.
9.           How many even prayed for her? How many even remembered? Can you pray for what you did not remember?
10.        Pastor was going to visit her and I told Pastor, I feel the household should do this for I have not heard him announce it. He said he has announced it. I told him to ask this Brother how the Brethren have been coming?
11.        It does not mean you must come with something. There is something in brotherly fellowship. You come there, you give the person hope.
12.        The place we read in the Bridal Compendium said, “When you are depressed and your brother comes, the Love will give you strength. The love will give you courage.”
13.        Because that love is not there, these are the little things we push away. We feel it is not necessary. How many weeks has she stayed here? Nobody has visited her apart from the Pastor with few Brethren, Apostle, Deacon and myself.
14.        Who else has seen the wife of Bishop Chikee? Show by raising up your hand. Elder Emeka. When did you see her? Today? In the whole Fellowship, it is only Elder Emeka. How many are we?
15.         It does not speak good. I said what? It does not speak good. But if it were THE SON OF MAN that came here, Enugu Household would have slaughtered a cow.
16.        DO UNTO YOUR BROTHER THAT SAME THING YOU WILL DO UNTO THE SON OF MAN. You do not see Him physically every day.
17.        So, show that love to that person you are seeing every day. In doing it, you are showing Him that same love. This is why I am preaching this Message RESTORATION TO MERCY AND LOVE.
18.        She must aim at complementing the efforts of her husband in raising the flock.
19.        She must appreciate her husband’s responsibilities towards the flock, and not constitute a clog on the wheels of progress.
20.        She must be neat always and treat all the flock with fairness and without discrimination.
21.        She must develop enough charisma. Pastors’ wives can you listen? We have two Pastors in this household. Right? Are their wives here? I can see only Sister Oluchi. Where is the wife of Pastor Ejike?
22.        You must develop enough charisma. The wife of a Deacon too is the wife of a Pastor. Take note. I just want us to go home and read this chapter A GOOD SHEPHERD.
23.        She must develop enough charisma to accommodate the inadequacies and imperfection of the flock at all times because not all will appreciate her kind gestures.
24.        So, even if they do not appreciate, do not stop doing good. Continue to do good, even to the wicked. 15She must be tender-hearted. Note!
25.        To the shepherd’s children. Let us now see what we are raising. It is either we are raising cannon fodders or we are raising true children of God.
26.        The shepherds’ children must be well behaved, obedient, humble, gentle and easily entreated. And what? Easily entreated.
27.        It then means they must borrow that cue from their father and from their mother. But if their parents are different from this, they must also become what their parents are.
28.        17They must not be proud... And these are the qualities of love that we read. That love is not proud. Love is not stubborn.
29.        They must not be proud, haughty, stubborn and reckless. They must not be drunkards who despise authority. They must dress modestly and aim at showing a good example to other children.
30.        They must be diligent, articulate and calculative in their behaviours... They must be what? DILIGENT, ARTICULATE AND CALCULATIVE, knowing that they are representing their parents wherever they are. Just like I am in Enugu, I am representing THE SON OF MAN.
31.        Wherever I am, even if I go to the North, I am representing THE SON OF MAN.
32.        If I have this revelation, it will restrict me. In restricting me, if I do it from day to day, it becomes my nature. Is it not true?
33.        It is called restriction. You might see it as a ban or see it that you are banned from doing something. Once somebody is banned from going out, you are always indoors.
34.        By the time you do it for one week, two weeks, three weeks, if you are now left alone, you will notice that there is nothing you will do outside. You will value staying inside because you have cultivated it as a nature and now it has become part of you. It shall be well with the righteous.
35.        Psalms 1:1 – 7 BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable)... And what? ENVIABLE. And what? ENVIABLE.
36.        ...is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice,... Let me tell you something. Those ungodly, they are in the Church. This is the Church. They are found here. So God knows that they can give you advice.
37.        That is why he said, “BLESSED, HAPPY, FORTUNATE, PROSPEROUS IS HE THAT DOES NOT LISTEN TO AND HEED TO WHAT THEY ARE SAYING.”
38.        So, we must get ready that the ungodly must come your way. After hearing this truth, they must try to put it in their own way. They must try to break it in a way to seduce your heart. God said, “Watch out for them!”
39.        BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive]...
40.        You may say, “I am not following them.” But you are listening to them, not knowing that words are spirits. I did not agree. I was just there when they were saying. You are just there inactive, but your spirit was submissive to them 
41.        ...nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
42.        Scornful and Mockers! So they have a union. They have a party in the Body of Christ. When the Pastor is saying one thing, they will be in their seats saying another thing.
43.        If there was time, I will show you in the Message, CHURCH ORDER. That it should be stopped from today
44.        Whatever message you have, keep it to yourself until the day you are invited to the pulpit.
45.        Enough of that rubbish where the Pastor will be admonishing a brother or standing a Brother up and you see another person walking up and down, mentioning the Pastor’s name and saying all sort of nonsense.
46.        If I am in this fellowship, I would not take that nonsense. If  any other Minister can take it, I will not take it. Enough of that.
47.        When the minister is AT the pulpit, God is standing AT that pulpit. God said, “This is our Urim Thumim. This is where we meet God.” If you are not afraid of this pulpit, I am very much afraid of it.
48.        That is why I do not come near this pulpit when I know my heart is not right with God. This is because you can slump and die on this pulpit. It is not because I was preached or I was told, but because I have experienced it.
49.        The moment you come to this pulpit to forge your own story, to say what is in your mind, to say what you feel and not what God says, note!
50.        To say what you feel and not what God says, because your personal interpretation of the Message is different from God’s own message.
51.        LET US DRAW A LINE BETWEEN DOCTRINE AND ADVICE. THERE IS A GREAT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DOCTRINE AND ADVICE.  ADVICE IS NOT FORCED INTO AN INDIVIDUAL BUT THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST IS ENFORCED.
52.        That is why the Police can arrest you on the street because the law must be enforced, but an advice is not enforced.
53.        So Ministers, there should be a difference between advice and Doctrine. And I do not believe we come to this pulpit to dish out advice, but nothing but the Word and word of God.
54.        If you have your own message, keep it to yourself. When the Message is over, you can write to the Pastor, another day you take over the pulpit and say whatever you want to say.
55.        But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
56.        Do you see where the children of God should delight themselves in? All these things sum up the love of God.  on this note, I say remain blessed Brethren.
                              
                 NOTE
LET US DRAW A LINE BETWEEN DOCTRINE AND ADVICE. THERE IS A GREAT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DOCTRINE AND ADVICE.  ADVICE IS NOT FORCED INTO AN INDIVIDUAL BUT THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST IS ENFORCED.
