SHOULD A MAN STRIVE WITH HIS MAKER EXPLAINED VOL 2

preview of bride of christ
Preached On Sunday, 9th May, 2019 At Household of Onitsha By APOSTLE KELECHI UWAKWE MODERATED BY APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN THE AGELESS BEING

Let Me tell you. I am jealous of you with godly jealousy, that I may dispatch all of you to Christ and Christ alone. DO NOT WORRY ON THAT DAY WHEN SALVATION SHALL BE MADE COMPLETE, YOU WILL KNOW THAT I AM HE AND BESIDE ME, THERE IS NO OTHER. ……. Even Prophet Mohammed recognized Him and saying that He came as a prophet immediately the Lord Jesus Christ left the scene, that He was the prophet that Moses prophesied in the Book of
Deuteronomy, which is the bone of contention which I have settled once and for all, because both the Laws and the Psalms, the Prophets, the Apostles, I AM THE FULFILLMENT.

I AM THE WORD EXPLAINED VOL 1; Preached on Sunday 27 April 2014; Pg. 99 vs. 17 & Pg. 105 vs. 32 – 33

PRINCIPLES OF RIGHT LIVING (1)

BE VERY CAREFUL YOU DO NOT FORGET THE THINGS YOU HAVE SEEN; Page 34 from verse 34 34Now I am showing you all these things before I will speak harder on what I am going to say, because the moment God gives the people His laws and they refuse to keep it, God will hand them over to reprobate spirit, so that they will go and behave anyhow and deny themselves, men with men, women with women.
2.           35The moment somebody is handed over to a reprobate spirit, that is the end of the person’s life here on earth and even in the pilgrim race. That is when a man comes to a condition where whatever he does; God will not rebuke him again.
3.           36If he does good, God will close His eyes, he does evil God will close His eyes. That man is finished because he is now permitted to behave anyhow.  In other words, God will now preserve him until the day of his final destruction.
4.           Such a fellow is doomed in this world. The destination of a child whose parents has been left to have his way is the grave. A fly without a counsellor follows a corpse to the grave.
5.           37He may be in the church jumping up and down yet God knows him as a hypocrite. All the sins he has committed so far, God will be storing them in His book, all confessions he hid under his lips, God will just store them in His book, to be revealed on the Judgement day.
6.           38On that judgement day, all that never knew him as a hypocrite will that day know him as a hypocrite. All that have been seeing him carrying Bible, those things that he did not want people to hear, the whole world will now see it because it will not only be televised, the cassette will be played also.
7.           39The cassette will be playing all that the person spoke with his mouth, because the Lord said that every idle word that proceeded out of our mouth, we must answer for it on the judgement day.
8.           Every unguided utterance, unguided talk. That is what it takes to speaks idle word. Idle word means speaking unguidedly.
9.           That is why the Igbo adage says that when a young person speaks abominably to an elder, he will boast that he has spoken sense into an elder.
10.        Unguided statement! Unguided utterance! That is idle word. You must be held accountable. The Bible said, “Even if you say you did not mean it; your soul is still guilty.”
11.        “It is not I wanted to say. It is not from my heart.” God is saying that you are guilty. Why? Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. [Matthew 12:34]
12.        39...We must answer for it on the judgement Day. That is why in our Message titled PRINCIPLE OF CHRISTIAN LIVING PART 2 and CHRISTIAN CONVERSATION, the LORD warned us and taught us how we should talk as children of God.
13.        40GOD GAVE US MOUTH TO PRAISE HIM, NOT TO CURSE AND NOT TO UTTER BLASPHEME OR FILTHY CONVERSATION.
14.        THAT IS WHY A CHILD OF GOD HAS HIS OWN WAY OF CONVERSATION. HE DOES NOT CONVERSE LIKE THE WORLD. HE DOES  NOT LAUGH LIKE THE WORLD. HE DOES NOT TALK LIKE THE WORLD.
15.        It is very important that we make sure we do not strive with our Maker in this our own day. Today is another opportunity that has been given to us to stop striving in our hearts.
16.        And before the strife will manifest physically in the flesh, in words or in action, it has been raging in the heart. Those things you think are unnecessary, when God will start to explain them, you will see how important they are.
17.        Pg. 38 vs. 4 – 5 4Thus, you have to follow God, even unto death. Even if your Pastor or your prophet says that you are not going, you continue because none of them made the vow for you.
18.        You made the vow to follow God. They made their own vow also. If they want to continue with their vows, that is left for them. If they do not want to continue, that will not discourage you.
19.        5GOD IS LOOKING FOR ONE MAN THAT WILL DO LIKE ELIJAH… That’s truth! …WHO WILL CONTINUE WHEN OTHERS HAVE STOPPED.
20.        When Lot’s wife got tired, did that stop Lot? Did it stop Lot’s children? The children clung to their father’s waist and were running the race without looking back, without considering obstacles along the way.
21.        When the man gets tired just like it happened to Nabal, Abigail must continue running the race, even using a horse, to the saving of her soul and her family.
22.        When a man gets tired of worshipping God, he will never allow the wife to worship God. If it is the woman that gets tired first, she will not allow the husband to continue worshipping God.
23.        That is why the Prophet said, “If your wife is not going, go! If your husband is not going, go! If your children say No, go!” Eternal life is like a casket. Eternal life is like a casket.
24.        It is a self-contained apartment. Your husband will not be there with you. Your children will not be there with you. Only you and you alone.
25.        When you are facing the wrath of God, you do not expect anybody to come and help you. The day Jezebel died, did the children help their mother? When dogs were devouring her flesh, did anybody run to her rescue?
26.        Is there anybody who will come face to face with death, and he or she will be pleading to be given an opportunity to call the father or the mother?
27.        GOD IS LOOKING FOR ONE MAN THAT WILL DO LIKE ELIJAH, WHO WILL CONTINUE WHEN OTHERS HAVE STOPPED.
28.        THAT IS WHAT GOD IS LOOKING FOR, ESPECIALLY AT AN HOUR LIKE THIS,… An hour such as we are now.
29.        …WHEN WE SEE DEEP SLEEP COMING UPON MANKIND.
30.        Brethren, is it a lie? Have you seen the dangers of losing heavenly vision? We are at the concluding side of the Ministry.
31.        CHILDREN OF GOD DO NOT REMEMBER WHAT THEY ARE AGAIN. 6I cannot imagine a soldier in the warfront seeing enemies around him, bullets going up and down, and he is dosing. He has the bullet, he has the riffle, he has everything at his disposal to wage war and then he is sleeping.
32.        7That he has passed sleepless nights for one year in the trench or in the war front, is that an excuse? Sleeping in the war front means risking his life. Enemies will just carry him alive. That is the worst thing that will happen to a child of God. I keep on saying this.
33.        AND THE MOMENT HE SLEEPS, HE WILL CAUSE HIS FAMILY TO SLEEP. IF A MAN IS NOT SERIOUS WITH THIS FAITH THE FAMILY CAN NEVER BE SERIOUS WITH THE FAITH. BRETHREN, IS IT NOT TRUE? YOU DO NOT KNOW THAT SIN IS INFECTIOUS. SIN IS INFECTIOUS.
34.        Striving with our Maker is a very dangerous condition and this striving always comes in a very simple way.
35.        The Lord speaks: very easy. It can be unconscious action. It could be a planned action.
36.        God gave us a Message, UNGUIDED MOMENT IN A MAN’S LIFE. In that unguided moment in a man’s life, it is what you the devil is looking for. That is the moment when the man is loose. For God said, “For every good achievement that comes to you, attracts the attention of your enemy.”
37.        Do you think it is because of Me that this statement is made? Apostle Kelechi, the whole essence of all that the ministers and Apostles are labouring to achieve; are they doing it for Me? Are they doing it so that THE SON OF MAN will not go to hell?
38.        I AM BORN TO RIGHTEOUSNESS. AND I CAME WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS IN MY HANDS. THUS IT BEHOOVETH THE SON OF MAN TO FULFILL ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS.
39.        You might be praying that you do not stumble into hell. Do not pray for Me. Hell is not yet formed because I am the One that will form hell based on what I have gathered from the first man God created.
40.        And I told you that I have been thinking about the appropriate punishment. I am not yet through because I still have souls designated to salvation whom I am yet to savage. When I am through, the world will know.
41.        Let me read out this quote from the Message DANGER OF LOSING HEAVENLY VISION. There is another Message there in the Part 2 FEAR GOD by THE SON OF MAN, Apostle Peter Odoemena, The Spirit Supreme.
42.        FearGod! Bro. Mike, where is FearGod? He went to where? You are losing control of your children because they are in the University. It shouldn’t be so.
43.        You must monitor them. I said, “BE DILIGENT TO MONITOR THE STATE OF YOUR FLOCK.” All that glitters is not gold. There are too many things that may happen.
44.        For fear of being misunderstood, those elderly people, men and women, who know the truth may not come to you for they do not know the extent you have loved your children, even in error. Lest they will be labelled wicked people or destroyers of your children’s reputation. I am telling you the truth?
45.        Bro Anayo speaks! [Bro Anayo concurs, “This is what we do.”] Period! Sit down!
46.        If it is discovered that when the evils of your child is reported to you, you get angry and frown, it will take a foolish fellow to still come and tell you or to caution your child to desist from such lifestyle.
47.        The person will simply conclude by saying, “Who knows whether it is the child’s nature or the way the parents want the child to be.” Did you hear My Voice?
48.        But if you really believe the Message of THE SON OF MAN, which says that it is not the responsibility of one person to train a child.
49.        If when I report your child’s misbehaviour to you and you retort by asking Me, “Is he or she the only person you? Were you employed to monitor my child? Don’t you see other children?” I will be a fool to return again to report your child’s misbehaviour.
50.        I will keep quiet, because that which you are looking for is definitely what you are going to see. Is there any other thing destroying people?
51.        Even in our midst here, I know many people here, men and women, fathers and mothers you dare not report the evil their children are committing to them.
52.        They will hate you with perfect hatred. They will even tell you in your face, “Have you taken good care of your own children?”
53.        Tell me, how can we then be our brother’s keeper? Those doing it know they are the ones doing this thing. Did I call anybody’s name? This is the very issue at stake.
54.        You are striving against your Maker, for your Maker has given you the rule of life, which you should impose on your children, whether they like it or not.
55.        But because you do not obey, you also help your children to disobey, only to turn around tomorrow to blame it on God. A child that is left to have his way must come back with shame and humiliation.
56.        At that point when you have made your child to understand that he or she can behave anyhow he or she likes and that nobody should interfere in any way, wait for the package that the child is coming home with.
57.        Wait, for whatever you have sown, that is exactly what you must reap. If you have hardened the child’s heart against listening to godly counsel from any other person, by making the child believe that he or she is hated; and that even if he or she does anything good, nobody will believe, no more!
58.        You have killed that child. You have finally killed that child. Relax and wait for the package that child will bring home for you. The child will bring home a package that cannot pass through your gate.
59.        The basket that can be used to bring it in does not exist, because you allowed it.
60.        An Igbo adage says that whosoever that sees a fowl scattering faeces with its legs should chase that fowl away from the faeces, for you do not know who will eat  the legs whenever the chicken will be prepared for food, for one person does not claim ownership of a human being. A human being belongs to all. 
61.        But is this not for someone that believes in this philosophy of life? There is some other person who does not believe in it.
62.        Are you amazed that an Igbo man can marry an Hausa woman? Are you also amazed that an Hausa man can marry a Yoruba woman, or that a Yoruba man can marry a Ghanaian? This is to show you that human beings scatter like the seeds of an oil bean tree.
63.        You do not know where marriage will land your child. You equally do not know where it will land another person. If it carries this person into your house, is it now an abomination. The person will now come to remove the unbearable burden in your house. This is pure truth!
64.        Marital relationship can bring in a foolish and unreasonable fellow into your house, man or woman to help remove the liability in your house, not an asset.
65.        Listen, let Me tell you what I believe. A man was alerted to call his child and instruct the child very well. He then claims that he does not have anything to tell his child. Are you hearing Me?
66.        The father now reclines to the saying that whatsoever a person sows, that he must reap, is that training? 
67.        It would have been better that you talk to that child, so that if the child deviates from what you have told him/her and act contrary, it can then apply that whatsoever the person sows, he or she should reap.
68.        FEAR GOD, Page 83 from verse 1. 1Christ told them, “This voice came down not because of me but for your sake”.  After all, there is no unbelief in Christ. You cannot trace any unbelief in Him.
69.        2What is it that I do not believe? I say, what is it that I do not believe in this life? If I fail to believe, what will be my reason for not believing it? I do not have any reason. If I fail to believe, am I wiser than God?

He does everything after the counsel of His own mind. He does not take any suggestion. Neither does He take any instruction from anybody. He does everything after the counsel of His own mind. Who has ever being His counselor?... …..He does not consult any man. He has no personal consultant. He takes a unilateral action. Unilateral decision. That is what Makes Him the Almighty. And if you watch all His decisions, they are all perfect. They are all perfect. Amen

THE PRINCIPLE OF RIGHT LIVING (2)

There is no unbelief in Christ and the Scriptures in Hebrews 2:14 said, “Since we God’s children are human beings with flesh and blood, He Himself became a human being like us.”
2.           IF CHRIST BECAME A HUMAN BEING, BEGAT ME, BEGAT YOU, AND THERE IS NO UNBELIEF IN CHRIST, CAN THERE BE ANY UNBELIEF IN HIS CHILDREN?
3.           So we must be very careful and monitor our life, monitor our character, examine our life, examine our character so that we will stand pure in the eyes of He that called us.
4.           Remember last Sunday, we read  from one of the Messages that the purpose for which God established this Bridal Ministry in this day of THE SON OF MAN, and gathered all of us into it, is to give us principles of right living.
5.           You can never obtain these principles of right living or see it anywhere or in any gathering under heaven, except in the Bride.
6.           BE VERY CAREFUL YOU DO NOT FORGET THE THINGS YOU HAVE SEEN; Page 62 verse 36 - 45 36THE BRIDAL MINISTRY IS THE ONLY AND THE LAST MOVEMENT [OF FAITH OF CHRIST] THAT WILL CLOSE THE GENERATION OF CHRISTIANITY.
7.           AFTER THIS MINISTRY, THERE IS NO OTHER MINISTRY THAT IS COMING UP. YOU CANNOT GET ANY OTHER MINISTRY RISING UP HIGHER THAN THIS.
8.           37THIS ONE (THE BRIDAL MINISTRY) IS COMING TO GATHER THE LOOSE ENDS AND TO CLOSE THE CHAPTER.
9.           IF A MINISTRY WILL COME UP AGAIN HIGHER THAN THIS, WHERE WILL IT BE SOURCING THE FOOD? WHAT WILL IT BE USING? IS IT NOT THIS HOLY SCRIPTURE?
10.        38IF CHRIST WILL COME BACK AGAIN, WILL HE DO MORE THAN THESE? PEOPLE WERE EXPECTING ANOTHER MESSIAH, WHEN THE MESSIAH WAS ALREADY ON THE LAND.
11.        TODAY AGAIN, THE BRIDAL MINISTRY IS THE MINISTRY OF CHRIST. IF ANOTHER MINISTRY OF CHRIST WILL COME UP, WHAT WILL IT DO? WHAT WILL IT PREACH?
12.        39WHAT YOU WILL BE SEEING COMING UP WILL BE CHURCHES, THAT IS, INDIVIDUAL CHURCHES. INDIVIDUAL INDUSTRIES WILL BE COMING UP.
13.        PEOPLE WILL BE BREAKING AWAY FROM THEIR CHURCHES, FORMING ONE MOVE OR ANOTHER MOVE. A LITTLE WHILE THEY WILL UNITE ALSO. I CALL THEM UNITED PENTECOSTALS.
14.        Has it come to pass? Fear God! Fear God! Brethren we have to put our hands together for God. Yes! For many have already dropped by the wayside.
15.        Yet, without them, we are progressing. Is it not true? We are not only alive, we are still marching on, 1996! That is why I came all out and declared that I will overlook all human inadequacies of late Bishop Ifeanyi Eze.
16.        This is because he was in the Faith when the battle was extremely hot; we passed through the Lion’s den fought together until he married the most wicked woman. Then his problem started, which culminated into his death.
17.        ONCE A MAN MARRIES A WICKED WOMAN, ONE THAT DOES NOT HAVE THE FEAR OF GOD IN HER, SHE SHORTENS THE MAN’S LIFE SPAN.
18.        Otherwise, there is no reason why Bishop Ifeanyi should die at the age 55 while I am still vibrating at 65. A bad wife not only produces bad children; she contributes in the premature death of the husband.
19.        I am making it known so that our children will take their time whenever it comes to marriage, so that they do not marry anyhow, lest they die anyhow.
20.        40Because already they have united in their system, while the Bride is going as an independent Faith, not mixing up with any group at all.
21.        See this prophecy. PEOPLE WILL TRY TO AFFILIATE WITH IT, BUT BY THE TIME SHE OPENS HER COLOUR, THEY WILL RUN FROM HER.
22.        We have been receiving letters from outside calling us to affiliate with them, this and that. See the prophecy here. 1995! Saying that people will like to affiliate with us. Come help us, let us join you. Let us do this. By the time the bride will open her colour they will run away.
23.        There is one called Pastor Blessing in Nsugbe. I have given the Pastor invitations twice to come with his wife so that I will tell them what I believe, so that he will stop calling Me Man of God, Man of God.”
24.        At the end of the day, he told Me, “I will get back to you.” For two years now, we only salute when we meet on the way. I also gave him many books. Now, we only salute, “The Bishop! The Bishop!”
25.        He has taken off, lest I scatter his members.
26.        41Until a child of God has the fear of God in his heart and sees God from this angle, he can never obey the laws of God with his heart.
27.        However, any day you think that God is a merciful God, so so and so, you deceive yourself.
28.        42Start seeing God as a jealous God who has married you,… Who has done what? Who has married you and Who has married me. ...who purchased you.
29.        You are no longer owning yourself. Is that not scriptures? Christ owns us, whether we die or we live, we are all in Christ. We belong to Him. He purchased us with His own precious blood.
30.        We are now slaves to Christ. Whatever He tells us to do is what we are going to do; can a slave fight against his master?
31.        Unless he wants to overthrow his master.
32.        We are slaves to Christ whatever he tells us to do we will do… Whether He uses soft voice to tell me to do something, I will do it. Even if he uses a harsh, hot and embarrassing voice.
33.        Whether he uses soft voice and low voice you will do as a slave whether He uses harsh, hot embarrassing words, as a slave, you must surely obey.
34.        No matter the form he uses. That is why, the only person that has the right to call his children goat, useless thing remains the parent. 
35.        Anybody that calls your child like that before you know it, you will enquire where that person come from. We must be very careful.
36.        God told His people Israel, “Among the whole people in all the nations, you are the nation I have chosen and you are the most stiff-necked people.
37.        OUR HUSBAND CHRIST HAS THE RIGHT TO CALL US WHATEVER HE WANTS TO CALL US IF WE DISOBEY HIM.
38.        He can call you devil like he called Peter, “Get thee behind me, you devil.”
39.        Whatever He tells us to do is what we are going to do, and because we are obedient servants, He is jealous over us.  
40.        43We are obedient sons and daughters so He is jealous over us; He would not like us to run round after other gods.
41.        Do you know that once there is disobedient to God’s word, it became idolatry? One single disobedience to God’s word makes you an idol worshipper, a stubborn fellow, a witch, a wizard, one that is not supposed to live.
42.        Now He would not like us to run around after other gods. He would not like us to play with His word.
43.        44THE MOMENT ONE LEAVES THE WORD OF GOD HE BECOMES AN IDOLATER. WHEN YOU FORSAKE THE WORD OF GOD, WHERE THEN WILL YOU GO?
44.        THERE MUST BE SOMETHING THAT PULLED THAT PERSON OUT OF THE WORD OF GOD AND THAT IS WHAT HE IS OBEYING.
45.        You can imagine how many idolaters are here because of only a single negligence to His word.
46.        Watch Jesus telling His disciples that he is about to die. He had said so before. And the second time, Peter said, “No! Master you cannot do it. Nothing can happen.” He turned around and said to Peter, “Get thee behind me, you Satan” for standing against God’s purpose and plan.
47.        45Today, lying is idolatry because the god that has pulled him out from the kingdom of God is the god that we worshipped in the secret, which we have now seen in the open.
48.        And we know the god we worshipped, the god of fornication, that is not the God we worship now. Somebody will not understand me.
49.        THE PURPOSE OF OUR GATHERING IN THIS BRIDAL FAITH AS GOD HAS TOLD US IS TO GIVE US PRINCIPLE OF RIGHT LIVING, BOTH MAN AND WOMAN.
50.        AND THAT PRINCIPLE OF RIGHT LIVING COMPRISES OF EVERYTHING ABOUT US AND WHATEVER WE WANT TO DO IN THIS LIFE. YOU DO NOT STAND UP AND GO OUT AND SPEAK ANYHOW.
51.        Can you imagine that it was announced over the Radio that a young boy of seventeen years drowned in a swimming pool. And this young boy was in the university.
52.        Why? Because he followed bad friends contrary to parental instructions.
53.        The father has money. The boy was brilliant. He just left the school.
54.        Did his parents die with him? No! The dead perished all by himself.
55.        That is why all the teachings we have received in this Bridal Faith is perfect and truth. Time tested Messages. Youths in our midst, go back to that message PRESERVE YOUR YOUTH AND ACHIEVE YOUR DREAM.
56.        I went through it in the post office. I called Pastor and showed him what I read in the Message. It is very very important.
57.        We now have revised edition. Revised edition. We distributed it today. So if you have the old one. It has been revised to meet the need of the hour because we now have too many growing children desiring to go into the university and other higher institutions. And we want to get them fully equipped at home before they will get in there.
58.        And those who are already there peradventure they have erred by leaving the pathway of truth, by going through these Messages they will retract their steps, so that they will not incur the wrath of God. 
59.        Who is worst hit by the wrath of God? It is one who knows the truth very well, but has hardened his heart to do that which is not right because he thinks he has the power to do it.
60.        And God vowed because of them, “Let hands join hands, no sinner will go unpunished.”

Let Me say that this day, the Scriptures have come to pass this day that the stone the builders rejected has now turned out to be the chief corner stone of the building. Amplified version said, “The chief indispensable cornerstone of the house.” I say, To God be the glory! I told you, if you can follow Me with every amount of godly sincerity and transparency, without any iota of hypocrisy, you will not be disappointed, but in the end, you will proclaim that surely, THE ELOHIM DWELLETH IN THE SON OF MAN. Selah.

PRINCIPLES OF RIGHT LIVING (3)

Get me Proverb chapter 1 verse 24 – 27, Living Bible. 24I have called you so often but still you won’t come.. I have called you so often and you do what? …you still won’t come. I have pleaded, but all in vain.
2.           25For you have spurned my counsel and reproof. 26Someday you’ll be in trouble, and I’ll laugh!  Mock me, will you? – I’ll mock you!
3.           27When a storm of terror surrounds you, and when you are engulfed by anguish and distress, 28then I will not answer your cry for help. It will be too late though you search for me ever so anxiously.
4.           God had been calling from the inception of this ministry.
5.           No response! They are only paying lip service. He warned and they do not listen. When calamity will befall them, God said he will laugh them to scorn. Instead of obeying God they are mocking God.
6.           When troubles surround them, they begin to kneel down early in the morning calling God. God said, “I will not pay attention to their prayers.”
7.           You see! God is saying that when He called, nobody cared to pay heed. Nobody cared to answer. When He gives us counsel, Nobody wants to take instruction from God.
8.           He said, “For that reason, watch me. I am a jealous God. I am a consuming fire. When calamity comes upon you, you will call Me that day, and I will close my ears.”
9.           I will tell you, “Your spare tyre has collapsed. Your spare tyre. Those that use God as spare tyre, your spare tyre contains no air again.” Why?
10.        You overlooked it. What are we discussing? SHOULD A MAN BORN OF A WOMAN STRIVE WITH HIS MAKER EXPLAINED? That is the Message we are considering.
11.        BE VERY CAREFUL THAT YOU DO NOT FORGET THE THINGS YOU HAVE SEEN; Page 91 verse 4 4Can you imagine God laughing at human beings! Do you know on that day, people will be rolling into hell fire, God will be somewhere laughing, because He, first of all, sent out His call.
12.        He sent forth His hands to save, but people did not want to take it. Then God will be somewhere laughing. Which means, when people were making their confession of lust, God was laughing because they couldn’t take God’s counsel.
13.        If you refuse to take God’s counsel in anything pertaining to your life, both spiritual and physical, God will laugh you to scorn.
14.        FOR THE FAMILY TO GET INTO PARADISE, HUSBAND AND WIFE MUST HAVE ONE STAND IN CHRIST; ONE CONVICTION OF THE TRUTH.
15.        FOR THE FAMILY TO STUMBLE INTO HELL, HUSBAND AND WIFE MUST JOIN HANDS TOGETHER TO BLASPHEME GOD AND TO RESIST THE TRUTH.
16.        THAT IS WHAT IT TAKES FOR HUSBAND, WIFE AND CHILDREN TO ROLL INTO UNQUENCHABLE FIRE. TAKING COUNSEL TOGETHER TO DO EVIL WILL PUT YOU INTO HELL TOGETHER.  
17.        BE VERY CAREFUL THAT YOU DO NOT FORGET THE THINGS YOU HAVE SEEN. Page 96 verse 15 – 18 15This is the Voice of God. When you hear God and obey him, you should not be afraid.
18.        God must surely deliver you. By day or by night, call upon Him, He will hear, because He is near us.
19.        That is why the Scripture said, “If you draw near unto God, God will draw near unto you.”
20.        16look at God! God is just standing here like this pulpit and this little radio cassette. Right now they are very close. This little cassette is still stationary. It is not moving. Now, I have drawn this book afar. The cassette is still standing there. It is not moving. Now, this book is far from this cassette because this book has been drawn afar.
21.        17Then, I bring it close now. The cassette remains in its own position. It is not moving. That is how God is. THE SAME PLACE GOD IS STANDING IS WHERE HE IS STANDING TILL TODAY.                           
22.        18WHEN YOU COME NEAR UNTO GOD, THEN GOD IS NEAR TO YOU. WHEN YOU DRAW AWAY FROM GOD, GOD IS FAR FROM YOU. Are you getting the illustration now?
23.        He that fired a shot at the moon thinking the moon is near, what has he done? He has just wasted his bullet.
24.        If because you see the moon in the night as if it is in your compound radiating the light very close and you carry your double barrel gun and fires a shot at the moon, you wasted your bullets. True or false?
25.        Did you understand what I am saying? Do you know where God is? Near, yet far to the sinners, for God is far from the wicked, but He is always very close to the righteous.
26.        Far be it from God to keep company with the wicked. God can never keep company with the wicked. Never! Never!
27.        But His delight has always been with the righteous. Those that do His good will, for which cause they are created. Why are we created? Why are we human beings? Only one reason: To do the will of our maker.
28.        Do not submit to His will when you are dead. If you do not submit to the will of God when you are alive, writing it on your obituary notice “With total submission to the will of the Almighty God, we announce” is a sheer waste of time because the grave can never change your destiny. The grave will only help you to get to your destiny sooner than you think.
29.        WISDOM IS MADE FOR THOSE THAT ARE WISE, THAT THEY MIGHT BE WISER. WE TEACH WISDOM TO MAKE THE WISE WISER; TO MAKE THE INTELLIGENT MORE INTELLIGENT; AND TO THE UNDERSTANDING, MORE UNDERSTANDING ABOUT LIFE AND GODLINESS.
30.        DO NOT BE A SAINT WHEN YOU DIE. BE A SAINT NOW THAT YOU ARE TALKING, WALKING ABOUT, FOR IF YOU ARE NOT A SAINT WHEN YOU ARE ALIVE, YOU CAN NEVER BE A SAINT IN THE GRAVE. TRUE OR FALSE?
31.        CUT DOWN A CROOKED TREE, IT WILL REMAIN CROOKED ON THE GROUND.  On the resurrection morning, remember the Message, THE TWO SIDE OF RESURRECTION. Some will resurrect to eternal life. Some will resurrect to eternal damnation, depending on what they have done here.
32.        18Drawing near unto God means obeying His word, obeying His statutes and His precepts, walking according to His commandments [and instruction]. That is what it means by drawing near to God. See Antipas in the city where Satan dwelleth.
33.        Brethren, remember that how this Faith started is how it is going to end. When it started, the Word of God will go forth discerning the heart of people, revealing their secrets, revealing what they did without anybody knowing.
34.        Instead of believing God to be the Revealer of secret, they will be going about thinking somebody must have reported to the preacher.
35.        You see why I had to ask Apostle Kelechi this question, knowing that he can never tell lies from that sacred desk.   
36.        Otherwise, those that are guilty of these offenses might be thinking that there must be someone who had already given him the whole narrative.
37.        Even as I am talking, are you sure that they are not hearing another voice from outside, telling them not to pay attention, for a dying dog hardly perceives the smell of faeces 
38.        So drawing closer to God means obeying His words as we are sitting down here. I said see Antipas in the city where Satan dwelleth.
39.        Nobody knew Antipas was there in the church history, you cannot hear his name. But God knew that Antipas was in the city where Satan dwelleth.
40.        And Antipas was so close to God because he was obeying God’s word, to the extent that God said see my servant Antipas, a martyr    
41.        Who dwelleth in the city where the Devil dwelt, and he did that which was right in the sight of God.
42.        SHOULD A MAN STRIVE AGAINST HIS MAKER EXPLAINED.
43.        Proverb 15:5 LB Only a fool despises his father’s advice. Only who? A fool. Only a fool despises his father’s advice.  A wise son considers his suggestion.
44.        A wise son considers the father’s suggestion. A wise son takes side with the father. Always on the father’s good side, because if he is not on the good side of the father, will he offer suggestion?
45.        For a child that opposes the father, even if he offers suggestion, the father will not pay attention. It is better he hears the voice of the devil than to listen to a child who is stubborn, reckless and uncontrolled by the words of the father.
46.        Proverbs 15:5 Good News Bible It is foolish to ignore what your father taught you. It is wise to accept his correction. It is wise to accept your father’s correction.
47.        As long as your father is godly. Go to Ephesians chapter 6 from verse 1. Children you obey your parents in the Lord. You can have your earthly parents. You can have your spiritual parents in the LORD.
48.        St. Paul said to the Corinthian church, “Though you have many fathers, but I stand here as your own spiritual father, for I begat all of you unto Christ.” He that begat you to Christ is your spiritual father. Is it not true?
49.        If your carnal fathers are pagans, idolaters, you should not listen to them, for they will lead you to their idols.
50.        But whosoever that will lead you to the Supreme God, that is your real spiritual father. And that is the person you must obey, that you may live long. Is it not true?
51.        St. Paul told Corinthian church, “Though you may have fathers, but as long as this salvation is concerned, I am your real spiritual father, for I have espoused all of you to Christ.”
52.        Your earthly fathers will give you food, give shelter, pay your school fees, treat you when you are sick and things like that. And that is where they will stop.
53.        But concerning life and godliness they are ignorant. And whatever a man has, that he will offer his children.
54.        Hence, pagans spoil their children right from their home. They teach them every kind of vice at home because the man is evil, the wife evil.
55.        Social human beings. And that is what they espoused to their children. Spoiling them at home before they will send them out.
56.        That is why, any disobedience that never started at home can be checked and controlled by the parent. This is because it never took its taproot from the home.
57.        But if it started from the home, the Almighty God cannot correct it. No matter who corrects that child, he will have it at the back of his mind, “After all, they are not my parents. If I spoil, what is your business? True or false? Thank you.
58.        After spoiling the child, he will be sent to the school thinking that the teacher will perform miracle.
59.        And this is your child you destroyed at home by teaching him rough life, expensive life, idle life, useless way of talking, dressing and every kind of evil; and he learns all at home.
60.        And you expect the teacher that will not benefit in any way to suffer for you. I told you in the Message, DO NOT FORGET YOUR CAREER TRANSPORTER, that character is like a seed that is sown in the home. 
61.        You sow the seed [character] in the home. Is it not true? You nurture it in the school as a nursery? Is it not true? Then, you do the transplanting because after the nursery, cometh the transplanting.
62.        When you transplant they can now grow up, bear fruit that will be reaped by the society.
  

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 CHILDREN SHOULD KNOW WHAT IS AHEAD OF THEM (1)

Ephesians 6:1 – 2 Living bible     Children, obey your parents; this is the right thing to do because God has placed them in authority over you. Who placed them?
2.           2Honour your father and mother. This is the first of God’s commandments that ends with a promise.
3.           Ephesians 6:1 – 3 King James Version.  Children, obey your parents in the Lord: Obey who? …your parents in the Lord:
4.           Is there any human being here that cannot boast of having parents in the Lord? Yet, there are many of them here, whose parents are not here.
5.           Although they are with us, they are pagans, for they have not espoused any of them to Christ. Instead they are spoiling them at home, hardening the children and separating them from God.
6.           When they are being brought up in a way that they have no respect for seniority, they have no respect for elderly fellows, they abuse their seniors, abuse even deacons and elders here, and even resist them.
7.           And when you carry their cases to their parents, they will flare up. Instead of descending on the children, you see them defending them by attacking those that are correcting them.
8.           When you are attacking an elder for correcting your child, will that child pay attention again? Try to give another reason, “Eh, my son did not mean to do it. Eh, in short, I interviewed him and he told me what he did.
9.           So you now believe your son more than the elder, because you are the only person that has a son, or has a daughter.
10.        Why should the elder hate your son? Is he envious of your son? Who is your son? What has he achieved that will make an elder to be envious of your son? This thought can never run across our minds.
11.        WE SPOIL OUR CHILDREN BY DEFENDING THEM IN ERROR. Am I making sense? Some even carry it to their homes ignorantly. You see women resisting their husbands in the face of their children, while defending their errant children.
12.        She will even call the husband a wizard with the claim that he [the man] hates his own son. She is saying all these atrocities in front of the very errant son.
13.        It will now be embedded in the son that his father hates him and considers him useless. Your Daddy did this and that. It is now your mother that loves you.
14.        The man is equally doing the same thing because they are contending for the control of the family. The warring parties are canvassing for the persons that will believe their own.
15.        Before you make a reasonable statement, you will be reminded that the goat only follows the man with the fleshy palm frond, and that the end justifies the means.
16.        You may be asking whether this type of person is in our midst. THE PERSON IS IN OUR MIDST, BUT NOT IN OUR FAITH. YOU MAY BE IN OUR MIDST, BUT YOU ARE NOT IN OUR FAITH. CHECK AND EVALUATE YOURSELF, TO KNOW WHETHER YOU ARE IN OUR MIDST OR IN OUR FAITH.
17.        1Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.  2Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise).  3That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
18.        SO, CAN A MAN STRIVE WITH HIS MAKER EXPLAINED?
19.        A woman that sings unto her own husband, “We know who is who when the time comes. It does not only end with talking and talking. It is only in the time for action, then you will show that you are father or mother.”
20.        Is this the type of statement that should be heard in our midst? Do you think there is nobody saying this?
21.        The person making this statement, is the person for peace? This seed such a fellow is sowing, will the fruits be harvested in due season? Will it be edible at all?
22.        YOU ARE RAVING AND STRIVING AGAINST YOUR MAKER BY SPEAKING CONTRARY TO HIS WILL. THE BIBLE SAID, “LET WHOSOEVER THAT WILL SPEAK; SPEAK AS AN ORACLE OF GOD.”
23.        SPEAK WHERE GOD SPEAKS. BE SILENT WHERE GOD IS SILENT. SUPPORT WHAT GOD IS SAYING. DO AWAY WITH YOUR OWN FOOLISH REASONING.
24.        INDOCTRINATING YOUR CHILDREN EITHER AGAINST YOUR WIFE OR YOUR HUSBAND WILL MAKE MATTERS WORSE. WHY?
25.        You are disbelieving God who said you should teach your children the way they will go. Teach them in the way of the Lord when they are too tender so that when they grow up they will not depart from it.
26.        But you are giving them wrong doctrines, wrong teachings to achieve your personal objective to their own destruction. The child will think you are giving him godly advice, not knowing you are destroying him.
27.        So we must be very careful not to strive with our maker.
28.        What killed Sapphira? Sapphira took side with the husband in error.
29.        Sapphira and Ananias conspired to strive against God when it came to offering. They saw others giving. They enjoyed from what others were giving.
30.        But when it came to their turn, they decided to sell a parcel of land, and then divided the money into two.
31.        Then when Peter asked, “Is it all?” He said, “Yes!” This is because he thought it was Peter.
32.        Peter asked, “Why are you telling lies to God? The land belongs to you. When you sold it, it is in your hand. Why can’t you tell the truth?”
33.        For telling lies, for striving with your maker by telling lies, dead struck. Ananias died there. See their manner. This is because they do not come to fellowship on time.
34.        The wife came three hours after the whole events.
35.        Peter asked her, “Sapphira, is it the same thing? Is it the amount for which you sold the land?” She said “Yes! Yes! That is the amount. He (Peter) said, “Ok, you conspired with your husband.”
36.        I know my darling. Since I married him, he has never deceived me. I know him. He speaks the truth.
37.        You see why it is very good to have discerning spirit. Spiritually divine discerning spirit is a gift God gives to His people.
38.        FALSEHOOD! FALSEHOOD CAN BE HIDDEN FROM EVERY HUMAN BEING, BUT IT CAN NEVER BE HIDDEN FROM YOUR EYES. FALSEHOOD IS NEVER HIDDEN FROM A MAN’S EYES.
39.        This is because whatever you try to get with falsehood, that is where his eyes will go, and he must take all available means to get that falsehood.
40.        IN THE SAME WAY, A MAN’S GREATEST POWER IS REVEALED IN HIS WEAKNESS.
41.        So, Ananias and Sapphira conspired and told lies. Telling lies means striving against your Maker. God has taught us how to answer questions, and not to tell stories.
42.        In the same way, Barnabas and Paul had sharp disagreement, which is striving also. Sharp contention!
43.        And the cause was Barnabas, for St. Paul said to Barnabas, “Barnabas my friend and my colleague, I will like us to go to the people which the gospel was preached to, to know how they are faring. He (Paul) wanted to hear “Amen.” But Barnabas flared up.
44.        So we are in the same ministry with same spirit, and with the same confirmation.
45.        WE ARE NOT IN THE SAME SPIRIT. WE ARE IN THE SAME MINISTRY WITH MANY SPIRITS GOVERNING MANY PEOPLE.
46.        THE DESIRE OF EVERY HUMAN BEING DETERMINES THE SPIRIT THAT WILL BE IN OPERATION IN HIM. WHATEVER YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE, MAN OR WOMAN, IS DETERMINED BY THE SPIRIT THAT HAS POSSESSED YOU.
47.        That is why you must be very careful.
48.        Let me back it up. In the wilderness, the Bible said, “Out of the million that were there, they had the same spirit.
49.        But Caleb and Joshua had another spirit. And that was the Spirit that pleased God. They were in the minority. One in a million.
50.        That is why when the spirit of God is in you, you follow God, you obey God’s word, for God cannot be in you and disobey Himself. He cannot do that. God cannot be in you and disobey Himself.
51.          Is it ever done? You have the spirit of God. And it leads you to disobeying God? No! The house has revolted against itself. It must surely collapse.
52.          Let me ask you this question. Have you not seen anything in this Ministry, from the time you came in or from the time God brought you in, which can convince you that really this is God and that this is the finger of God?
53.          1995 was when we were asked this type of question. Presently now, is there anybody here who has not seen any proof of God speaking in THE SON OF MAN?
54.          If you have not seen, it is because you are not ordained to see it. Which means, you are ordained to this present condemnation.
55.          BE CAREFUL THAT YOU DO NOT FORGET THE THINGS YOU HAVE SEEN; Page 26 verse 14 - 17 14…In all the denominations we have on Earth, there had never be a time any church has risen on Earth that has a god that walks so close as our God, to the point that He answers us with a pillar of cloud, visible with human eye. Bro Ojiakor! 1995! SON OF MAN’S Family!
56.          15He answers us with pillar of fire which somebody can see with human eyes.
57.          Why then are they demonstrating, as if they were there in the beginning? In the beginning, were you with us? Is it because we accommodated you? And that is why you have the boldness, even to talk. Do not worry. After today, many will leave us.
58.          15Thus, it is not something that we read in the scripture now. It is something that we have witnessed with our own eyes.
59.          He answers us with audible voices which many have heard in our midst from heaven. So there had never been any Church that has walked so close to God as this little group. In 1995!
60.          16God is not doing all these things in vain. When God came down and was walking with the people of Israel starting from Egypt down to the wilderness, God was doing all these things so that He will be justified as a Righteous Judge.
61.          17He was doing all these things so that no man will glory in His presence. All He did was just for His name sake, so that the people of Israel will not lay hand on anything to lay charge against God.
62.          You cannot lay hand on anything to rise and challenge God, even asking Him silly questions. No No No!
63.          WE ARE HIS SLAVES. Whether He speaks to us in simple voice, in loving voice, we are still His slaves. If He speaks to us in a harsh voice, because of what He saw as our condition at that moment, we are His slaves.
64.          All He need is complete obedience. That is why God said, “Do not throw in your towel when the king is angry or when the punishment is tough on you. Pause a little, humble yourself. Bow down in shame.”
65.          See! Do you know that there are some people sitting down in our midst who are longing to see where they will lay hand, and disobey the authority in the Bride?
66.          Sure! Many are looking for faults.
67.          And they are looking for where they will lay their hand.
68.          And whatever they are looking for is what they will see.
69.          As long as this Bridal Faith is concerned, and you are coming here to find fault with anybody,
70.          You will see many!
71.          Then the question is, “Is Christ seeing the faults you are seeing? Absolutely not! For His righteousness has covered them. This is because their God is in their midst.
72.          Their God is in the midst of those that believe in Him. Not Judas o! Not Cain. And not Jezebel
73.          So, God is answering us, not what you read in the Bible but physically. We heard the footprint just like we are, in session like this, in the morning, in the other hall.
74.          We heard His footprint on the sands of time. Everybody felt that He passed near him, including those sitting in the middle of the benches.
75.          That Jesus learnt obedience through what He suffered. What have you learnt from what you have suffered? Every one of us must learn obedience. All you have suffered thus far from the time you came into this Bridal Faith, the chastisement, the indictment, the rebuke, the disgrace everything aimed at putting you in order, What have you learnt?
76.          I now quake. God using My word, My statement. Pastor you are here. Speak immediately. Pastor Chizoba confirms, [word for word]
77.          Because of God’s presence in the time of Moses, when he came down to speak to the people of Israel on Mt. Sinai, Moses said I Moses quaked.
78.          If Moses that used to climb the mountain, enter the fire, enter the cloud, the smoke was going on, the people of Israel were watching, enter there, stay there forty days and forty nights came out; it was the time to speak to the people of Israel, and Moses became more afraid than before. 
79.          BRIDAL JUDGEMENT IS STILL ON.






I am saying that the seed of the fruit is germinating, because I am an able minister of the New Testament, I am not Eli, I am not David, I am not Moses, but some may like to go after such people, it is not for Me. What I am holding has power enough, what I am holding is not weak. I am holding a spiritual Law not a carnal Law. What I am holding is profitable and not unprofitable.

OUR CHILDREN SHOULD KNOW WHAT IS AHEAD OF THEM (2)

Let us learn something. They asked William Braham, “Why did God allow Job to pass through such a terrible thing? He replied, “It is a training. It is experience he is passing through.”
2.           Can’t you see that whatever you are passing through is ordained for you? For when your obedience is fulfilled, then the promised will come. We are heading to Eternal Life. We are expecting our new body.
3.           Some are heading to eternal hell.
4.           Sure! It is only for those whose obedience are fulfilled, and who through what they have suffered, they learnt obedience.
5.           And having learnt obedience through what you have suffered, then the promised immortal body will be your portion.
6.           But if do not learn anything at all, well, it is an express ticket to damnation. Express ticket.
7.           Can you please permit us to read from Living Bible? The book of Proverbs, chapter one. You quoted verse 24, but I want to quote from verse one to ten.
8.           Let us know what the wisest man in his day [Solomon] said. A man that was surrounded by the pillar of cloud, even in the temple.
9.           1These are the proverbs of King Solomon of Israel, David’s son: 2He wrote them to teach his people how to live—how to act in every circumstance,…
10.        He did what? Taught his people the rule of right living; how they should live their lives. There is no write-up without a purpose.
11.        The purpose was to guide them, giving them guiding principles of life, so that they will not incur the wrath of God, and the wrath of men.
12.        When Luke wrote to Theophilus, he said the idea was to strengthen the record and to guide humanity against error, as one who was there from the very official beginning.
13.        So Solomon wrote, persevered it to guide us against error, teaching us the principles of right living.
14.        2He wrote them to teach his people how to live—how to act in every circumstance,…  
15.        How to do what? How to Live and Act in every circumstance, for the circumstance you find yourself does not tell the world any other thing but who you are. Circumstance cannot make you what you are but will reveal who you are.
16.        I sing in my Song: [The lord you are so good to Me in all circumstances, in all circumstances you are so good to Me. God you are so good to Me in all circumstances, in all circumstances you are so good to Me.] I do not know about you.
17.        He wrote them to teach his people how to live–how to act in every circumstance, 3for he wanted them to be understanding,... He wanted them to be what? …understanding, just and fair in everything they did.  
18.        4I want to make the simpleminded wise! To make the simpleminded wise. I want to warn young men about some problems they will face.
19.        5-6I want those already wise to become the wiser. I want those who are already wise to be wiser. …and become leaders by exploring.  And become what?
20.        …leaders by exploring the depths of meaning in these nuggets of truth. Alleluia!
21.        By exploring the depth of the meaning of these nuggets of truth. God expounded our understanding that we may understand the real meaning of the Holy Scripture. Any contradiction?
22.        Our children should know what is ahead of them, that they should know the problem they will confront as they journey along.
23.        And if they are prepared ahead of time, to surmount them will be very easy because they have been prepared. What if they were not prepared, and they meet the problems along the way, it may be their doom. Why we must catch them young.
24.        5-6I WANT THOSE ALREADY WISE TO BECOME THE WISER AND BECOME LEADERS BY EXPLORING THE DEPTHS OF THE MEANING IN THESE NUGGETS OF TRUTH.
25.        7-9HOW DOES A MAN BECOME WISE? THE FIRST STEP IS TO TRUST AND REVERENCE THE LORD! Only fools refuse to be taught.
26.        Listen to your father and mother. What you learn from them will stand you in good stead; it will gain you many honours.
27.        10If young toughs tell you, come and join us turn your back on them! 11We’ll hide and rob and kill, they say. 12Good or bad, we’ll treat them all alike.
28.        13And the loot we’ll get! All kinds of stuff! Come on, throw in your lot with us; we’ll split with you in equal shares.
29.        15Don’t do it, son! Stay far from men like that, 16for crime is their way of life, and murder is their specialty. 
30.        17When a bird sees a trap being set, it stays away, 18 but not these men; they trap themselves! They lay a booby trap for their own lives.
31.        19Such is the fate of all who live by violence and murder. They will die a violent death.
32.        They will do what? Die a violent death. If you live violent life, you die a violent death.
33.        So, anybody who takes delight defending his or her child that has indulged in violent life, on the day his iniquity shall be visited, you may not escape. You may be taken away and you die before that child will die.
34.        This is the purpose of the Bridal Faith, giving us the principle of right living, how we should behave, how we should act and how to conduct ourselves in every circumstance.
35.        YOU DO NOT KNOW IF YOU HAVE THE HOTTEST TEMPER, AS PEOPLE USE TO BRAG, IF SOMETHING TAKES PLACE. YOU DO NOT KNOW IF YOU HAVE THE MIND AND THE HEART OF MEEKNESS UNTIL SOMEBODY STEPS ON YOUR FEET.
36.        You do not know how to control yourself until you are accused falsely. Your attitude in all these things tells who you are and where you come from, and who your teacher is?
37.        That is the case. Somebody may have these things without knowing. When it happens, he will say these things are in me, yet I know them not.
38.        That is why, in every situation you see yourself, God allowed it to come out to meet you, and to see whether He has wrought anything in you, whether it is in your secret place, in your family or outside.
39.        Your attitude towards one another, even in your work places, for somebody may provoke you just to see whether you will get angry, for the Scriptures said that we should be angry and sin not.
40.        Now, be angry and sin not. That anger, that thing that provoked you, if you can control it and bring it under your control without acting contrary against the teachings and doctrine you have received, then God will know, you will know who you are and what is in you.
41.        The truth is that many have repented but they have not been converted that their sins may be blotted out.
42.        So they repented and these things are still there. Repentance means sorrowing for what you have done wrong.  I am sorry! I am sorry! I am sorry! Is “I am sorry” conversion?  When you are converted, “I am sorry” will stop.
43.        And God said, that this year is the year He will not hear “I am sorry.” So, if you know that which will bring you to THE SON OF MAN to say I am sorry, he said, “Avoid it.”
44.        We should avoid it. And that is what the devil is looking for since it has gone out of the mouth of Lord who said, “This year, THE SON OF MAN will not hear “I am sorry.” Keep it to yourself. The devil hangs there, then following all of us.
45.        When you are having dealing with THE SON OF MAN; when THE SON OF MAN wants to call you for an errand, or for one thing or the other, the devil will come near looking for a place, looking for that unguided moment in your life where he will strike for you to say “I am sorry.”
46.        But we can be obedient to God’s word, guide ourselves and be very careful as a woman is careful when she is having her august visit and that august visit used to come to them every month and they are extremely careful once they see the sign.
47.        They take precaution ahead of time.
48.        Thank you sir! FOR THE SCRIPTURE SAID THAT WE SHOULD FLEE FROM ALL THE APPEARANCE OF EVIL THAT COME TO YOU ANYHOW.
49.        Leave Onyema alone. Are you the only one that heard it? I equally heard it.
50.        It can come to you. That appearance of evil is following everybody. THE SON OF MAN told us that as far as you are praying for long life and prosperity, you are also praying for temptation, suffering, hardship and trials.
51.        This is because the devil is trying the people or the person that is alive. Knowing that this is what we face daily, you must be very careful and follow Him strictly in every of His Words and teachings which He has given to us.
52.        Failure to do that, then that unguided moment in a man’s life which is the only thing the devil is looking for; at that moment when you did not guide yourself; you are just porous, you cannot remember the type of person you are again, that is the thing the devil is looking for.
53.        Apostle Kelechi this Sunday school has stayed longer than necessary. I think a word is enough for the wise. If it will please you read Epistle 21 from verse 7 through 10, conclude and come down.
54.        THE GREAT SERMON AND THE HOLY-SPIRIT INSPIRED EPISTLES: Epistle 21, from verse 7 on Page 429; “7 to the rest of you that remains faithful to the faith, I warn you to be very careful about rebellious instinct that is in man.
55.        8It is this instinct that inspires people to rise up to find fault with the servant of God from time to time. 
56.        9These people do not understand one salient point; that God does not hear or pay any attention to them.
57.        10There is only One person God will pay attention to his words or petition at any given time. And that is His well-beloved Son who bears His Name. He is both the mouthpiece of God and of the people of God.
58.        Remain blessed Brethren.
