preview of bride of christ
Preached  on Sunday 15th December, 2019 At The Household of God, Onitsha By APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA THE SON OF MAN

Anybody that is a child of God from the very beginning till today and has been listening to the Words of THE SON OF MAN, has attained a height; has inculcated a culture, habit, tradition that can never never be influenced away from him or her no matter where he or she finds him or herself. ... I am always on the Lord’s side. I do not care who you are. I do not care your relationship with Me. Once you do not take side with God, I am against you and God is against you. Every true
Seed of God takes side with God. Whether man or woman, you are on the Lord’s side.
FAMILY FORUM; Preached on Sunday 5th October 2008 at the Household of God, Onitsha; Pg. 46 vs. 61 & Pg. 104 vs. 58 – 59

I HAVE COME TO STAY

You are all welcome to His presence this day. The year is almost finished according to European calendar, but according to God’s calendar, it is just but less than one day. I hope I am making sense. It is less than one day. We have not even started according to God’s calendar.
1.           This is because He will break us down, do everything with us for two days. The third day, He will cause us to rise. He will revive us. Then we shall live in His presence. And the third day started by His own calendar on 1st January, the year 2001.
2.           We thank God for everything. The old calendar terminated by the year 2000. One day above 2000 belongs to the LORD. It does not belong to you. It is in His hands to determine how long He will carry it. Every extra time is the referee’s time. True or false?
3.           Extra time does not belong to any team. It belongs to the referee. You do not know how many hours or minutes he is allowing you. He can collect the ball anytime. Once he sees the sign of a win or a draw, he collects the ball. You cannot ask him why.
4.           But how do you know when he is about to terminate the whole thing? It might be when you are trying to level up with your opponents. You see him moving towards one corner of the pitch.
5.           Gradually, he will be drifting to a corner, waiting for the ball to come that way. He will become the goalkeeper, collect the ball, the last whistle will go and that is the end. You cannot query him.
6.           To God be the Glory. Great things He has done. I give God the praise because He reigns. He reigneth. Let the whole earth tremble.
7.           I thank God we are still matching on, whether we are believing or not believing. The truth is, we are still on course. And the end justifies all things. The end justifies all things.
8.           But while I am here, I see you as believers. What will prove you otherwise is already here. I see you as people that know the truth. What will prove Me otherwise is here. I see you as people that are practicing the truth. What will prove Me otherwise is here.
9.           As long as THE SON OF MAN liveth, I condemn you not, but what will condemn you is already with you, in you and about you. What will justify you is in you, with you and around you.
10.        Nothing is coming again. Whatever we are expecting to come is here already. So we are here waiting for time. No more. No less.
11.        Last week, about few days ago, some Elders were with Me as it has been our manner every morning. At least, the four of us will have our usual morning Fellowship in My house. We touched on too many issues.
12.        So our Pastor started sharing His testimony with us that his senior brother, Bro Chinedum Udochukwu came back and narrated to him, his encounter with one who was with us at the Head Bridge.
13.        And while they were having that encounter, lo and behold, Bro John Ekwueme appeared from nowhere and identified the man who was having the conversation with our Brother, and many others.
14.        So, people were watching them while Bro John Ekwueme confronted him, called him by his name Maduabuchi Kenneth Umeh.
15.        In his usual way, you know he claims to be everything, but God disarmed him of everything and left him a mad man. He has remained a mad man till today, living under the Bridge, hanging about without any abode, begging food.
16.        And I thank God that the encounter ended at the Head Bridge. They never introduced him to where I am living. Otherwise, he would have continued to be a pest, for while I was living at Benjamin, he was a pest and a constant pest to Me.
17.        Of course, you know the truth. Whenever he had his revelation, he would say God directed him to Me to come and approve it for him. At the end, he would ask for money and everything, until one day, he ran into the hands of Bro Ojiakor in My house, and he nearly fought all of us, saying that we were living big and allowing our brother to die of hunger and starvation.
18.        We gave him five thousand naira [₦5000.00] but he said it was not enough, “Give me more! I need money.”
19.        One day, he claimed to be a rabbi. We were here when he put on one white Ephod from head to toe, claiming to be Melchizedek. In another one he claimed to be Jehovah.
20.        One day, he came to me with his write-up and said that the Lord directed him and that I should verify all. While I was going through, I said “My friend, what you are claiming is anti-Christ. Let Me show you Scriptures.” He said, “Do you mean it?” then I said, “Look at it. Are you the anti-Christ?” He said, “No No No! Let me tear it right away.”
21.        Now, look at one amazing thing there. In every nonsense, there is a sense. At the end of the day, I learnt he made a very good shocking revelation of which I said, “It came out for Chinedum Udochukwu and not for any other person.”
22.        He [Kenneth Umeh] said he was one of the living witnesses here on the day we were all praying during our Fellowship and the command came out from the pulpit, “All eyes closed. God is in the Camp.”
23.        He said he was among those that knelt down and closed His eyes. And then they started hearing the footsteps of a man they could not see because their eyes were tightly closed.
24.        He said the footsteps continued round the Fellowship, until the thing came to his corner. He felt that the man pulled his garment and pulled his belt. He said that he opened his eyes to know whether the One that was giving the command from the pulpit, telling them “See Him there! See Him there!” was the One walking at the same time.
25.        He said that he opened his eyes and looked, only to behold the same man talking, standing in the pulpit far away from the Congregation. He said that to him, it was shocking.
26.        At the end of the day, nobody could ever say who the man that walked about was. And remember it was that day that the Voice said, “Come next week with your camera and you will see He that has been dealing with you all these years to banish unbelief.” [Sunday, 30th March 1996]
27.        When I heard this testimony, I said, “Glory be to God. It is to strengthen the Faith of Brother Chinedum Udochukwu who was not there when it happened. After many years, he ran into the hands of one who was there, but he is no longer with us.” So, he cannot go away and say somebody bribed the man who was claiming to be everything.
28.        You see, Kenneth Umeh is still holding that experience. But to you, God appeared first. What is your own testimony? If as mad as he is, the madness has not erased that experience, what about you?
29.        I mean, a man that is adjudged mad over the years for reasons you know very well. You know My encounter with him when I came back from My missionary journey in Jos and met a strange spirit in the Camp claiming to be everything, withstanding all the Ministers.
30.        You know what took place that day [evening hours]. No rain; No sign of rain; No wind; Nothing nothing.
31.        He was challenged in the name of the Almighty God to stand up if God had ever spoken to him for one day either in dreams or in visions or by audible voice, and then make a declaration of what he heard from the Almighty or keep quiet forever.
32.        You were all there. While he was there, all of you were seated. From nowhere, the bright light, thundering and destructive light left everybody and came to his seat, swooped on that seat once in an instance. No eyes were closed. We were all awake.
33.        The command went forth the second time. The same lightning came to him and to no other. Immediately, he knelt down and raised his hands towards the sky and shouted, “I surrender!”
34.         ONE THING IS TO MAKE A CLAIM. ANOTHER THING IS TO SUBSTANTIATE THE CLAIM. If I claim to be this and that, I think I have substantiated all. If I told you to follow Me, whether you believe in Me or not, holding your peace, never to call anything God or Devil, that towards the end, everything shall be made plain, and you can give Me a name, have I misled you?
35.        I said that even if you do not believe in any other thing, you must surely say, “Surely, the Elohim dwelleth in THE SON OF MAN.” Has it come to pass?
36.        THERE IS NO ARGUMENT THAT CAN REDUCE ME OR INCREASE ME. I HAVE COME TO STAY. I AM WHAT I AM. YOUR UNBELIEF, YOUR ARGUMENT, YOUR CRITICISM, YOUR FAULT FINDING, THEY MEAN NOTHING. AND I DO NOT NEED THE SUPPORT OF ANY MAN. CAN A MAN BORN OF A WOMAN SUPPORT GOD?
37.        SO DO NOT EVER THINK YOU ARE SUPPORTING ME. YOU ARE SUPPORTING YOURSELF. I HOPE I AM MAKING SENSE. IF YOU ARE SUPPORTING ME LEST I WILL FALL, IF I FALL, WHERE WILL I FALL INTO? IF THE ELOHIM WILL FALL, WHERE WILL HE FALL INTO?
38.        When Moses was adjudged to have fallen, where did Moses fall into? Who carried Moses? Who buried Moses? Who has ever seen the tomb of Moses? Who mourned Moses? Even when Lucifer came to contend over the corpse, what happened?
39.        Michael the archangel came down and said, “May the Almighty rebuke you.” He rebuked the devil and carried the corpse because he [Moses] came to the end of his Ministry. It was a time for change-over to Joshua for the continuance of the same journey.
40.         When Jesus [the Christ] came, fulfilled his mission, he was nailed to the cross and he gave way. Finish! When John the Baptist came, fulfilled his ministry, he gave way. He was handed over to Herod. Am I making sense? God continued the journey.
41.        I promised the Elders who were with Me that they should pray, for Me to change My mind and reproduce a Message or a teaching they enjoyed in foolishness, for I thought they were with Me and with their Congregations.
42.        And I ministered for one hour thirty-four minutes, but they never recorded even a statement. They were moping, filled with fear during the early morning of yesterday, which if they had recorded, would have been a very good Sunday School this morning for all of us.
43.        That is why I am stretching Myself again this morning, intending to scratch it, but it cannot be as it was yesterday, for that of yesterday was for yesterday and today is for today.
44.        How I wish they will learn their lessons. Have it at the back of your mind that I do not joke. I mean what I say and I say what I mean. I have told you times without number and you heard it from the mouth of one of our Pastors, a young Pastor, Wisdom, last Sunday that your problem emanates from your attempt to separate the godly side of THE SON OF MAN from the human side. That is where you run into troubles.
45.        I do not know how to separate president Muhammadu Buhari from the military. I hope I am making sense. And that is where Nigerians are confused. You made the mistake by electing [by popular mandate] a military man into a democratic office.
46.        That you win election through public mandate democratically does not make you a democrat. A military man is a military man and must handle everything with military precision. He does not want delay by the national assembly. Hence, he evoked a silent clause in the constitution called executive order.
47.        Watch Donald Trump of America who served in the American Army and left the Army as a Major and joined WWF [World Wrestling Federation] and became a world wrestling champion, from where he made money and then became an estate manager.
48.        As a real estate consultant, he made money and built the greatest and the biggest private university in America.
49.        Now, you elected a soldier as a president to rule America under a democratic dispensation. It is like electing George Bush, who was a General in the army and who ignored the Congress and launched a war against Iraq, being a General.
50.        It is like electing a General, Benjamin Netanyahu to lead Israel into a democratic order or parliamentary system. It is impossible. Once a military, always a military.
51.        You watch former president Olusegun Obasanjo, a General in the army and an engineer by profession. Who are you? Where is the court that you want him to obey? Flouting the orders of the court is the habit of every soldier. Somebody who is trained to kill, to vandalize and to loot with precision.
52.        When you make a mistake, you better accept it and then tolerate it for 8 years. Pray that we will live while he will go.
53.        We are lucky that we never elected Badamosi Babangida. Nigeria would have received the worst pill, for Buhari is much more humane than Babangida.
54.        I will use everything to make you understand Me. I hope I am making sense. These are earthly Generals, but I am a Heavenly General. I say, I AM THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE HOSTS OF THE ARMY OF HEAVEN.
55.        Then, if you are destined to be in heaven, you must pass through the rigours of My training as a soldier of Christ. [1] You must be recruited into the Army of Christ. [2] Receive the requisite training as a soldier, like saint Paul received as a soldier of Christ, so that you will know how you should comport yourself by putting on the whole armour
56.        [3] By day or by night, you must be clad in the military uniform. And the uniform is incomplete without the breastplate, without the helmet, without the boot and without the rifle, and always ready to combat all oppositions. [4] And after fighting, you still remain resolute without losing your ground. That is a soldier. [1 Thessalonians 5:8]
57.        I am looking forward to seeing the Teacher who will type it to the Scriptures of how you should wage a warfare in the Faith you are in. You are soldiers of Christ marching to Zion where the greatest battle is raging continually.
58.        That is why you must know who you are and then know what is ahead of you, that you may know how to comport yourselves at all times. Otherwise, the enemy may take you captive. They may capture you alive. And that is the worst thing that happens to a soldier who allows his opponents to capture him alive.


Text Box: I am through with all you should know as far as preaching is concerned. What is waiting which is about to take place is just one thing: a proclamation and whatever may be the content of that proclamation, for now, should not bother you. However, you know what it is. That THE SON OF MAN has finished His fight with the Anti-Christ. He has won the battle against His opponents.

UNBELIEF CREATES BARRIER BETWEEN US AND GOD

I
 am going home. This morning, I want to give you the same breakfast we ate yesterday. The Elders, about three of them and Myself making them four, it has always been our habit that once we gather, we must eat our breakfast.
1.           But it is unfortunate that when they get home, they look feeble as if they have not eaten. They look lean both spiritually and physically.
2.           The reason is this, they are numbered among those who know the human side of THE SON OF MAN and the spiritual side of THE SON OF MAN. You know the human side. You know the godly side. I do not know, but you know more than Me.
3.           You ask Me, “Brother, how do I know your human side?” I will tell you, “I do not know.” You enquire again, “How do I know your godly side?” I will reply, “I do not know. I AM WHAT I AM.”
4.           I HAVE TOLD YOU THE TRUTH. NO MATTER WHERE I AM, NO MATTER THE CONDITION YOU ARE MEETING ME OR I AM MEETING YOU, I REMAIN WHAT I AM.
5.           Our Brother James, a new comer came from Lagos with Apostle Monday. While they were sojourning with Me in My house, he might be thinking it was deliberate, but the people that are acquainted with Me know that I am always naked in My house.
6.           I was naked. Really naked. It got to a point, Pastor Thomas was there and I told him My Brother, “Begin to count yourself as a blessed man for dining with a naked God. You met Me naked and I have remained naked for two nights so that you see Me just as I am.”
7.           Whatever I am is what you are, but only one thing makes the difference. And what makes the difference is .... [THE SON OF MAN POINTS TOWARDS THE PICTURE OF HE THAT DWELLS IN HIM]. True or false?
8.           What makes the difference? The Supreme Deity dwelleth in Me and makes a difference between you and me. Why the difference? You have not accepted Me. You will accept Me before you can accept Him. Wherever I am at any given time, that is where He is. True or false?
9.           The moment you receive an envelope, you have received the content of the envelope. Reject the envelope, you have rejected the content. We are talking about the spiritual content of Apostle Peter Odoemena.
10.        In Nigeria, we are talking about local content, local content. Why? We have been besieged with many amorphous programmes without anything crystallizing from any of them.
11.        Hence, government can no longer continue to fool anybody. As you are announcing your programme, we are demanding, “Can we please know the local content, from where we can benefit.”
12.        YOU MUST KNOW THE LOCAL CONTENT OF EVERY MAN OF GOD AND KNOW THE SPIRITUAL CONTENT, FROM WHERE YOU ARE BENEFITTING.
13.        IF YOU DO NOT KNOW BOTH THE LOCAL CONTENT, THE SPIRITUAL CONTENT AND THE INTERNATIONAL CONTENT OF THE SON OF MAN, YOU DO NOT BELONG TO HIM. YOU ARE A FOREIGNER.
14.        WHAT WILL MAKE YOU TO THROW YOUR WEIGHT, YOUR FULL WEIGHT BEHIND HIM IS THE CONTENT. THE CONTENT OF THE ENVELOPE DECIDES THE VALUE. AM I MAKING SENSE? GOOD!
15.        THAT IS WHY WHEN, FOOLISHLY, YOU HAVE DECIDED TO GO CONTRARY, AUTOMATICALLY YOU LOSE YOUR CORE VALUES BEFORE GOD AND BEFORE MAN.
16.        Let us go back to My home. My home is from the same place where I was announcing the man who was walking about. I was seeing Him, but the Congregation never saw Him. They were hearing his footsteps as a man.
17.        He came to no other to pull his clothes but Kenneth Umeh. He pulled his belt and Kenneth opened his eyes. So he [Kenneth] confessed. Another person He touched that way was Ben Adiukwu, who was near the window.
18.        He ran back and preached a Message, BECAUSE I AM A WITNESS, “I am a witness. He came to my corner. He even pulled my garment.”
19.        I cannot be in this pulpit and My hand will stretch as far as the wall to pull the garment of somebody there or his belt.
20.        You see why the hands of God are not too short that He cannot save or deliver, but something is creating a barrier between us and God. What is that thing? UNBELIEF! UNBELIEF!
21.        Let Me come home. I want you to bring out your Bible translations. I would not talk to you this morning using the Qur’an. Other preachers will use the Holy Qur’an to balance everything.
22.        I have handled this Message several times and in diverse ways. If you go to the Message titled, MAINTAINING A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP IN THE BRIDE OF CHRIST, I gave you a Message there titled, THE BORN AGAIN CONCEPT.
23.        As we journeyed along, one day here in this same hall, not up to one year now, I came up with a Message titled, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN. I handled it here, when I was talking about the need for you to be converted, especially at this dying minute.
24.        I am revisiting it in another dimension. In another dimension. And I want everybody to give Me rapt attention as I handle this Teaching.
25.        Remember, this Teaching profits you nothing until you know the Source. True or false? You must know the Source of the Message, of the Doctrine and of the Teaching. But where you have made up your mind to separate the human side of THE SON OF MAN from the godly side, I wish you luck. I hope I am making sense.
26.        Let Me tell you what you are trying to separate. You are trying to separate the human soul from the human body. You cannot separate the soul from the body. Can anybody attempt it with success?
27.        You believe that this Being is in Me. You believe that this Being is living in Me and I am living in Him. Dissect Me, you will never see Him.
28.        If you carry out a caesarean session on a pregnant woman, you carry out the baby. Carry out such operation on THE SON OF MAN with a view to evacuating this Man from Him, so that you can have Him as your friend or baby in the house, I bet you, you will end your research in nullity.
29.        But is He there? Is He there? Is the soul of a Man in Him? Which doctor has ever separated the soul from the body or replaced the soul in a body. I HAVE HEARD EVERYTHING BUT I HAVE NOT HEARD ABOUT SOUL TRANSPLANT.
30.        AND THAT IS WHAT MAKES A MAN A LIVING BEING. YOU ARE NOT IN CHRIST UNTIL THIS UNSEEN LIVING BEING DWELLS IN YOU, CONTROLLING YOU, DIRECTING YOU AND DICTATING EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU, UNTIL HE BECOMES YOUR ENGINE ROOM. AMEN.


Are you truly in this Faith? Are you truly in the Faith of the Son of Man? If you are not in the Faith of the Son of Man, you are in the “religious faith” (a churchgoer). Religion makes God invisible; and there is no experience in an “imaginary God.” If you do not believe that God is a Man, your salvation is questionable.
AS I THOUGHT ON MY WAYS VOL 2; preached on 24th December, 2000; Pg. 51

YOU ARE NOT FAR FROM THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN

Let us go to the Scriptures immediately. Saint John’s Gospel chapter 3:1 – 2, Living Bible. Anybody that wants to read should come forward.
1.            1-2After dark one night A JEWISH RELIGIOUS LEADER named Nicodemus,... Please note the man’s status. A religious leader. We have religious leaders here. Experts in preaching religion in their homes and establishing their religion in their families, which I called Odoziobodo.
2.           Every preaching is aimed at subjecting every member of the family to dance to their tunes whether good or bad, giving them the impression that he is not deceiving them, when he knows he is deceiving them.
3.           He knows that he is not establishing Faith but religion. He is not establishing truth, but religion. That is why, from the onset, the Voice told you, “I AM THE SON OF MAN. I DO NOT WANT TO IDENTIFY MYSELF WITH THE POLITICS THAT GOES ON WITH RELIGION. I WANT TO BE IDENTIFIED WITH CHRIST AND CHRIST ALONE. AND WHEREVER CHRIST IS THERE IS LIBERTY. MY DUTY IS TO GIVE YOU THE TRUTH AND I WILL GO MY WAY. I DO NOT NEED TO BEGIN TO FOLLOW YOU ABOUT.”
4.           If you believe the truth, you know. If you do not believe the truth, you know. Of what use is giving you sanctions, giving you order, “Do not eat. Do not drink. Do not touch. If you do it, I will kill you. If you move out without my knowledge. If you do this, if you do that”, is it not absolute rubbish?
5.           WHAT CONTROLS A CHILD OF GOD IS IN HIM. MY RESPONSIBILITY IS TO INTRODUCE YOU TO HIM AND I WILL GO MY WAY.
6.           1-2After dark one night A JEWISH RELIGIOUS LEADER named Nicodemus, A MEMBER OF THE SECT OF THE PHARISEES,... Note!
7.           A member of the sect of the Pharisees like saint Paul [who was a Pharisee of all Pharisees]. Which means that he was the greatest acclaimed religionist of his day, who outdid and stood for the totality of the observance of the Jewish laws and rituals, and he himself leading in the observance by obeying them without a single fault, born in the family of Pharisees. His great great great grand fathers were Pharisees that demanded strictest observance of the laws.
8.           And in spite of keeping it A to Z, without a single fault, he was not yet saved. Why are you introducing it in your homes? It is because you are a stranger to what I am going to say now. I want you to know whether you are strangers or members of the family of God.
9.           What I want to introduce is not born again. but born again must be there. You must place yourself right this morning or never.
10.       I have a Message, DO NOT LISTEN OR PAY HEED TO THE VOICE OF STRANGERS. Do we have it? The stranger might be your wife. The stranger might be your husband. It might be your Pastor. It might be your Apostle. It might be anybody.
11.       WHOEVER THAT IS NOT CONFORMING TO THE TRUTH ACCORDING TO THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, MEANT FOR HIS OWN FAMILY IS A STRANGER TO THAT FAMILY AND DOES NOT BELONG TO THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD.
12.       You can belong to the household of your kingdom or any other person’s kingdom or Onitsha, Nsukka, Enugu, but not that of Christ.
13.       THAT OF CHRIST IS AN INVISIBLE ONE. THE UNION IS INVISIBLE. THE INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE, WHERE WE ARE MEETING TOGETHER IN THE AIR, IN OUR THEOPHANY BODIES DEVOID OF ANYTHING EVIL, FOR WHICH CAUSE WE ARE PREPARING OURSELVES BY PLACING OURSELVES RIGHT. YOU WILL KNOW WHERE YOU ARE TODAY. I WILL KNOW WHERE I AM.
14.        1-2After dark one night A JEWISH RELIGIOUS LEADER named Nicodemus,... Underline it. [1] He was a Jew. [2] Not an ordinary Jew, but a religious leader. In the area of “Do not do this! Do not do that!”, he was an expert. He not only taught it, he also observed it A to Z without a single fault. And yet, he was heading to hell.
15.        Listen to Me. I say, listen to Me very well. Cornelius was a very nice man, full of generosity, showing hospitality, giving alms to the needy and to the poor. He feareth God and avoideth evil. Before everybody, he was living an upright life, but to God, it was like a filthy rag. It was self-righteousness.
16.        That is what you are establishing in your families, and you want your children to be saved. Noah taught the children to obey God. Am I making sense? Lot taught the children to obey God.
17.        You must teach your children the right doctrine. But you cannot teach aright when you are not walking aright.
18.        Now, you may know the truth and believe the truth. When you know the truth and believe the truth, you are not too far from the Kingdom of heaven like Cornelius. He knew the truth and he believed the truth, but he was not too far from the Kingdom of Heaven. [Acts 10]
19.        WHY? ONE THING REMAINETH. I SAY, ONE THING REMAINETH. WHAT IS THE ONE THING. ACTING ON THE TRUTH YOU HAVE KNOWN AND BELIEVED.
20.        One thing remaineth, and “nearly” can never kill a bird. “I missed it narrowly” means “I have missed it.” Any second chance? No!
21.        It is when a student fails in examination that he begins to recollect himself by discovering that which he ought to have done, but he did not do it.
22.        “Oh! If I had tried this question, maybe I would have gotten it or 3%. By this, I would have scaled through the cut-off mark.”
23.        I mean that 0.01 can hinder somebody from securing admission. I was using My daughter Oluebube as an example for what hindered her was 0.03. She would have hit first class. Not 0.1, but 0.03 which is less than 0.1 hindered her. And nobody could say, “Let us add it”, for you alter the whole result.
24.        “Nearly” could not give her first class. But you will be saying, “I missed it by whiskers.” But you have missed it. Your certificate will be reading Second Class Upper Division. Period!
25.        Begin now to narrow this truth down to yourself. Have you known the truth? Have you believed the truth? One thing remaineth. And that one thing that remaineth is where I am standing and saying that you are not too far from the kingdom of Heaven.
26.        A young man came to Jesus Christ with the question, “What shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?” And Jesus told him, “Look at what you will do.” He said, “Ah ah! I have done that.” Jesus said, “Well, you are not too far from the Kingdom of Heaven. You must be born again.” And that is the man I am going to consider his experience.
27.        SO, WHAT IS THE TITLE OF MY MESSAGE? MY MESSAGE IS: YOU ARE NOT TOO FAR FROM THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, BUT ONE THING REMAINETH.
28.        Where you are now, all of you, is not enough to take you into Paradise. Take the truth from THE SON OF MAN. While some are very close to Paradise, some are at the brink of falling away. Two categories as we arrive at the Gate.
29.        One on the brink of falling away, for they have been consumed by the world already. Only a small part of their head is rearing up. The entire body is submerged in the ocean of the world. They are at the brink of falling away.
30.        Let Me put it in medical terms. They are gasping. They are not breathing, they are gasping. Gasping is not breathing. When somebody is gasping, he is showing a sign of life at intervals. It is not consistent. It is not regular.
31.        And what he is doing cannot support real life. It can stop. Many are gasping in this Faith while many are vibrating like a new engine. I hope you are getting what I am saying.
32.        Some are already in the Kingdom, resting. Already in Paradise and they know they are there. 24 hours, they are there. No shaking.
33.        Yes! This is because the Bible cannot tell lies on this matter. We that have known the truth, have believed the truth and have practiced the truth, we are already in there, while the rest are still operating outside, with some struggling to come in and some are already on their way out, their spirits collapsed, their faith fainting, expectation failing them. Why? Because of religion.
34.        BECAUSE OF WIDE SPREAD RELIGION, EVIL HAS INCREASED WITHOUT RESTRAINT, FOR NOTHING PROMOTES EVIL MORE THAN RELIGION. RELIGION DOES NOT CURB EVIL. RATHER, IT PROMOTES EVIL. AM I MAKING SENSE?
35.        If you read the book of Colossians, your abstinence from this and that can never curb your human desires. It can never check your indulgence. Rather, it promotes them. Is it scriptural? [Colossians 2:20 – 23]
36.        When you subject yourself to the rigours, trying to observe those rules and regulations that are man-made, being introduced by human beings and enforced with threat, they do not check the indulgences of the flesh. Instead, they promote them.
37.        Apostle Kelechi, true or false? Pastor, is it scriptural. That is what you are introducing in your families. And that is what you are practicing because you are playing hide and seek game.
38.        You make yourself a policeman to arrest people when you are absolutely corrupt. You are checking criminals, armed robbers, when you are using the threats, holding the rifle to kill people because they have not given you money. Why extorting money using rifles and guns? Why beating people to death?
39.        This is Christmas. You will hear what will be happening on the highways. Nobody is serving in the office again. The only crime they know is “Hold it there! Fifty naira!” but crime is on the increase. Am I making sense? That is what all of you are.
40.        A corrupt mind trying to instill righteousness in the minds of his followers because you think you have the power. You cannot succeed. Rather, it will make you more corrupt, for you will no longer be seeing your faults but the faults of others.
41.        The police can never accept that they are armed robbers, although they kill while trying to extort money. If you know the definition of an armed robber according to the law, we will know who then is a visible armed robber. Anybody can wear uniform and be an armed robber.
42.        So, uniform does not make you a government official. You can be a government official and still an armed robber. Many of them are indulging in kidnapping. Even soldiers are not left out. Evil does not respect your uniforms. When the heart is evil, the whole system is evil.
43.        How can you, being evil, know how to instill God’s spirit into members of your family. You, being evil, can you introduce righteousness?
44.        I would not know what is in My children until I give them the truth and give them the liberty to practice what they have believed. Then, I will be monitoring. If they are going wrong, I will put them right.
45.        But where I am always there as the policeman harassing and intimidating and threatening them, even with things I know I cannot unleash. “I kill you. I do this!” You cannot do anything. If you kill, you will be killed.
46.        The highest thing you can do is to make noise. And if you make a great noise, somebody will come from the neighbourhood and expose you, “Why are you descending on your family this way. Are you not the one we know for this.” That which you think they do not know about you will be made known. Then you know that all eyes are seeing you.
47.        That which you know about people, they also know it about you. Do not think that you are the only person that is sensible. That which you know, some other persons also know it. That which you know about somebody, another person knows the same thing about you.
48.        You are not an island. You are not operating where there is no human being. Whatever the eyes can behold is no longer a secret.
49.        I am going to the Message. Nicodemus came by night, but we heard about it in the day. Am I making sense? He came by night, so that people will not see him. He came by night so that the Pharisees would not know that he had joined Jesus’ gang. But in the day, it was noised abroad.
50.        That which he was concealing became a world quote. World reference point. Who told the people that he came by night? It was not Jesus. He never knew that when he thought everybody slept that some people were awake.
51.        He never knew that no matter the way he disguised himself and crawled, watching eyes through the window, through torchlight noticed him that he was stooping in there.
52.        Then he became a reference point without Jesus advertising that this rich man, a Pharisee of all Pharisees who demanded utmost secrecy and that what he did in the night became an open spectacle in the day. A lesson to learn? A lesson to learn? Good!
53.        He did not go about quarrelling with people. Neither did he go back to Jesus, indicting him of being open-mouthed, “I never knew you can be open-mouthed to expose me. How did people know that I came to you in the night? After all, it was man to man affair, but everywhere, it is being noised abroad. Is that how you talk?”
54.        He did not react. But if it were you, you will write a text message to THE SON OF MAN, and then threaten the members of your family never to have any dealings with THE SON OF MAN, for He will publish it in the newspapers.
55.        If it is not like that, why do you impose sanctions? Any day you report anything like this to THE SON OF MAN, you will leave my house. I will do this. I will do that.
56.        You do not know that even before you conceived it in your mind, THE SON OF MAN is holding it. That He is talking to you is for you to see how foolish you are.
57.        THAT WHICH YOU THINK GOD DOES NOT KNOW DOES NOT EXIST. WHAT ALLAH DOES NOT KNOW DOES NOT EXIST. HE KNOWS THE THOUGHTS OF OUR HEARTS. EVEN THE WORDS THAT PROCEED OUT OF OUR MOUTHS, THEY EXISTED AS THOUGHTS BEFORE THEY CAME OUT OF OUR MOUTHS AS WORDS AND THEN THEY ARE EXPRESSED BEFORE OUR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS. A WORD IS NOTHING BUT A THOUGHT EXPRESSED. TRUE OR FALSE?


Let Me use one instance. Any Jew that does not believe that God is a human being that can be seen, never believed Moses, never believed the testimony of Manoah and many others. ... You are not a Jew because you came from Israel. What makes you a Jew is your belief. What makes you a child of God is your belief. When you believe that which God has taught you, you act on what you have received, the difference is clear.

ONLY ONE THING REMAINETH

After dark one night A JEWISH RELIGIOUS LEADER named Nicodemus, A MEMBER OF THE SECT OF THE PHARISEES, came for an interview with Jesus.
1.           When you go to that Sect of the Pharisees, as saint Paul put it while making his defense, he said, “I am a member of the Sect of the Pharisees that demanded strictest obedience to the laws’ demands and I obeyed all, A to Z, without a single fault. I never knew I was lost.”
2.           You see! Impossible road to Heaven. And people are establishing them in their homes and in their hearts. I am going to something.
3.           “Sir,” he said, “we all know that God has sent you to teach us. Did he know the truth? Did he know the truth? He acknowledged, “We all know that God has sent you to teach us the truth.”
4.           In other words, the Pharisees were not teaching them the truth. Brethren, is there truth in there? We all know that nobody sent you but the Almighty Allah. The Almighty God sent you for one purpose. To teach us the truth.
5.           A statement he dared not make in public, being a Pharisee. If he should say it before other Pharisees, they would stone him to death. To acknowledge that God sent a man outside Moses to teach them a truth higher than that of Moses, which they had already said no to, a Pharisee confirmed the truth, went and then disclosed the truth, “Although we are the Sect of the Pharisees, we all know.”
6.           That is why he asked them the question, “From where did John the Baptists’ power come, since you want to know where My power came from?” They reasoned, for they knew the power came from the Almighty God.
7.           “If we deny it is not God, they will stone us to death. If we say it is God, people will believe him and no longer believe in us. Let us tell Him that we do not know.” Let us tell Him, “We do not know.”
8.           Does it exculpate them from being blamed? Never! Knowing the truth and denying it because of the repercussions, has it saved you? You are still guilty.
9.           Now, this man came, “Master, please look at me. Take me for what I am. I am a member of this Sect of the Pharisees. A religious man that believes A to Z and practices all. Please conceal my identity. I want to tell you that there is no Pharisee that does not know that God sent you to teach us the truth, although we are holding on to these religious doctrines of Moses. Let me tell you sir, none of us is obeying them, they are very difficult. And no human being can obey them.”
10.       Did Paul confirm it? Paul said, “No human being can obey them.” Peter said, “Why disturbing the Gentiles, giving them a burden we ourselves could not carry and our fathers could not carry them, for these are laws our fathers never obeyed, we never obeyed and no human being can obey them? Why burdening people with them. Why not introduce the truth which is FAITH in Christ? Have faith in God”.
11.       Nicodemus was not an ordinary man. You can call him a bishop emeritus as per the sect of the Jews. A highly elevated personality and well respected among the Jews. He came by night, concealing his identity, “Sir. Look at who I am. Look at my position in the land of the Jews. We all know. Nobody is in doubt as to who sent you or what you are standing for. We know that God sent you to come and teach us the truth, for what we have been propagating is mere falsehood, Odoziobodo. Odoziobodo! We have been propagating religion which contains no truth.”
12.       If you know any religion that contains truth, tell Me that one. Tell Me the religion that contains truth. It was the one that Cornelius practiced and God answered, “You are not too far from the Kingdom of Heaven.”
13.       Religion will make you the worst human being on earth. If there is anybody troubling your family, check it. He is a religious man. A religious man who holds religious righteousness by observing all the rules and regulations of the church where he belongs to and which run contrary to sound doctrine.
14.        By then you will be inflicting injuries and pains to innocent souls, putting them in bondage, imputing sin where sin does not exist. Always creating walls of partition.
15.        I want you to place yourself where you belong to. Remember My topic: YOU ARE NOT TOO FAR FROM THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, BUT ONE THING REMAINETH.
16.        You have done everything right according to Sister Ojiakor, “Daddy SON OF MAN, thank you immensely. You have done everything right.” Sister, you have equally done everything right. One thing remaineth.
17.        You have known the truth. You have acknowledged THE SON OF MAN to be a man sent by God. You have believed that God is with him. You have believed that what He is giving out is truth that has no substitute; truth that giveth life; truth that cometh from above; truth that changes human lives if they will believe.
18.        YOU HAVE BELIEVED ALL THESE THINGS, BUT ONE THING REMAINETH. BELIEVING AND YOUR LIFE REMAINING THE SAME IS A SURE SIGN OF REJECTION. BELIEVING AND REMAINING THE SAME, ACTING THE SAME AS YOU WERE BEFORE THE TRUTH CAME TO YOU IS A SIGN OF TOTAL REJECTION.
19.        HOW DO I KNOW YOU HAVE BELIEVED? THE MANIFESTATION IS THE INTERPRETATION. WHY? BY THEIR FRUITS, YOU SHALL KNOW THEM. BY THEIR FRUIT, YOU WILL KNOW THEM THAT BELIEVE AND THEY THAT BELIEVE NOT.
20.        Hear Me very well. What justifies a scientific theory is not the theory but the inference. You can propagate your hypothesis. Let it be propagated into law. It remains there, but what is the product of the empirical formula? What does the empirical experiment yield?
21.        Some of you are coming up. You will still come to terms with some lies that were propagated at the elementary stage. That is the introductory stage, where they will tell you that matter will remain the same. Your atom will remain the same after all chemical reactions. That is not true.
22.        It can be easily broken down. Do not worry. I am not going there, but when we want to teach you, we will come lower and then tell you too many things that you were calling laws that were nullified as we continued. I will tell you where atoms became molecules and where molecules even vanished. I will tell you.
23.        You talk about the spontaneous expansion of water, I will tell you it does not exist and I will prove it. They are just used to test your knowledge, but I am empirical. And I will tell you what you will put together and you will diffuse the nonsense.
24.        Let us go to something. Do not clap for Me. I am talking about Nicodemus. I am talking about one coming closest to entering Paradise, but missed it by whiskers.
25.        The Jews followed from Egypt down to Canaan. One step into Canaan, they missed it. They saw Canaan. They ate the fruit of the land. But entering, no way. No way!
26.        One thing remaineth. It is better I do not approach the Gate than to tell Me that I am not too far from entering Paradise. One thing remains. Only one thing is needed.
27.        I have endured all things all these years, passed through troubles, passed through the crucibles of the Faith, enduring everything, and at the dying minute, one price to pay, then I miss it, of all human beings, I will be the most miserable.
28.       1-2After dark one night A JEWISH RELIGIOUS LEADER named Nicodemus, A MEMBER OF THE SECT OF THE PHARISEES, came for an interview with Jesus.
29.       Came for what? ...an interview with Jesus. “Sir,” he said,... He did not call him, “Mister man.” Remember he was senior to the young boy called Jesus. To be a Pharisee of all Pharisees; to be a member of that Sect is not meant for boys and girls. You must know who you are.
30.       Look at how he [Nicodemus] humbled himself before Him, “Sir, Sir” irrespective of his [Jesus] age. Was he respecting the man Jesus? He was respecting the local content of the man Jesus, respecting Him for the office He [Jesus] was occupying and respecting Him for the sake of He that sent Him, which he [Nicodemus], first of all, acknowledged, “We all know that you were sent by God to teach us the truth.”
31.       Many will come with straight faces. Some will come with words filling their mouths. Some will come with arguments without recognizing the majesty of the LORD in the personality they have come to see. They open their mouths widely.
32.       “Sir,” he said, “we all know that God has sent you to teach us. “WE ALL KNOW THAT GOD HAS SENT YOU TO TEACH US.  Your miracles are proof enough of this.”
33.       3Jesus replied, “With all the earnestness I possess...... all the earnestness I possess... I possess. ...I tell you this: UNLESS YOU ARE BORN AGAIN, YOU CAN NEVER GET INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.”
34.       With all the earnestness I possess; with every sincerity of heart and purpose, I tell you, “You can never ever enter into the Kingdom of God, except you are born again.”
35.       You cannot enter with what you are holding or what you have possessed already. what you have possessed as a religious Pharisee can never take you there. You must be disarmed. You must start life all over in a new way.
36.        “Born again!” exclaimed Nicodemus. “What do you mean? How can an old man go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?” Carnal understanding.
37.        Jesus replied, “What I am telling you so earnestly is this: Unless one is born of water and spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God. Men can only reproduce human life, but the Holy Spirit gives new life from Heaven. LB
38.        What gives a new life from heaven? You know what water is? Water is the Word. [Ephesians 5:26 – 27] You know what the Spirit is? The Spirit is the Word [John 6:63] and the Word is God. [John 1:1]
39.        Saint Peter explained it, “Come that I may wash you with water by the Word.” Jesus went further to make you to understand that the Words I speak to you, they are spirit, they are life.
40.        So when we are talking about the water we are talking about the Word. When we are talking about the Word, we are talking about the Spirit. We are talking about the life. The life-giving Spirit comes by the Word which you hear, which penetrates your heart and forms this definite form.
41.        THE WORD OF GOD IS SETTLED IN THE HEARTS OF ALL THE CHILDREN OF GOD, BUT NO DOCTOR CAN OPERATE A CHILD OF GOD AND SEE THE WORD. BUT THE WORD IS THERE. THERE IS NO CHILD OF GOD THAT DOES NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THE WORD THAT IS IN HIS HEART.
42.        THE WORD SPEAKS TO YOU AND YOU SPEAK TO THE WORD. SOMETIMES, YOU ENTER INTO ARGUMENT WITH THE WORD, IN YOUR HEART. THE WORD INDICTS. THE WORD CORRECTS. THE WORD QUERIES. THE WORD DOES EVERYTHING.
43.        WHY? IT IS BECAUSE THE WORD IS ACTIVE AND ALIVE IN YOU. IT HAS FORMED A DEFINITE FORM. THAT IS THE REASON IT CAN ASK YOU WHY. YOU CAN TELL PEOPLE LIES BUT YOU CAN NEVER TELL LIES TO HE THAT IS DWELLING IN YOU, IF YOU ARE A SEED OF GOD. TRUE OR FALSE?
44.        THAT IS WHY, BEFORE YOU RECEIVE CONDEMNATION, HE HAS ALREADY CONDEMNED YOU. HE HAD ALREADY PASSED JUDGMENT. TRUE OR FALSE? WHY? HE HAD ALREADY FORMED A DEFINITE FORM WHICH NO DOCTOR OR RESEARCHER CAN SEE, BUT HE IS THERE.
45.        HE CAN FLOG YOU TO THE POINT WHERE YOU WILL BE WEEPING AND CRYING, PASSING SLEEPLESS NIGHTS. YOU ARE UNDER HIS TORMENT. TORMENT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT DWELLING IN YOU.
46.        THEN, YOU KNOW THAT A BEING IS ALREADY IN YOU WHO CONTROLS, WHO CHECKS, WHO EXPOSES, WHO MONITORS, WHO ADMONISHES.
47.        THAT IS WHY, ONCE YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD, YOU HAVE NO NEED THAT ANY MAN SHOULD BE PUSHING YOU ABOUT, FOR ONCE HE IS WITH YOU THERE, THE MATTER IS SETTLED.
48.        TELL ME WHERE YOU WILL GO WITHOUT CARRYING HIM ABOUT. THAT PLACE DOES NOT EXIST.
49.        I want you to remain sober as we consider. YOU ARE NOT FAR FROM THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, BUT ONE THING REMAINETH.
50.        I am not using Cornelius example. I am using this man. As pure as he is in his sight, he came by night to enquire. And he was not hostile. Even after Jesus’ explanation, he went away soberly, quite unlike the lawyer who came and became angry and walked away. [Mark 10:17 – 22]
51.        But this Pharisee heard that His spirit is like wind. You do not know where it is coming from and you do not know where it is going. Simply yield yourself unto obedience to the truth, and you will be reformed. And he said Amen and went away.
52.        He has received the truth. It behoves on him to do whatever he wants to do with the truth. Christ in your hands. Christ on trial in your hands. You can be the Pilate. I do not want to go there today. Let us continue with the Message proper.

Do you hear the Voice of The Shepherd? Do you understand the Voice of your Shepherd? I AM THE CHRIST OF THIS AGE, THE ANOINTED ONE, THE MESSIAH, THE REDEEMER. IN ME, ALL THAT MUST BE SAVED IN OUR AGE MUST PIN THEIR HOPE. THUS, IF YOU CANNOT HEAR MY VOICE AND UNDERSTAND ME, IT GOES TO SHOW THAT YOU ARE NOT OF ME. If I speak and you do not understand or you do not believe and the Scripture speaks, you do not believe, you do not understand; Nature speaks and you do not understand, do not bother yourself. You are in the region of the lost. You are an escort. You are an Agboro (a tout).

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A MEMBER OF THIS GREAT FAMILY?

I will, first of all, take us to the first family. Genesis 12:3, Living Bible. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you; and the entire world will be blessed because of you. LB
1.           3And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed...
2.           Pay attention! We are talking about the first family. And that first family is Abraham’s family, from where we derived our families even till today. Do we have Abraham alive? Sure. Do we have his family alive? Sure.
3.           Pay attention. Where there is no Abraham, there is no God’s family. I am telling you the whole truth. If you like believe Me. If you do not like, do not believe Me.
4.           3And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] AND CURSE HIM WHO CURSES OR USES INSOLENT LANGUAGE TOWARD YOU;... Curse him who curses or uses insolent language on you
5.           ....IN YOU WILL ALL THE FAMILIES AND KINDRED OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED... Outside Him, they will remain a curse, for the opposite of blessing is a curse. When you say that Abraham’s blessings are yours, that is if you are Christ’s. Is it not true?
6.           If we are Christ’s; if we belong to Christ, we are Abraham’s descendants. We are also heir according to His Promise. Whatever God promised Abraham now belongs to us. Why? We belong to Christ which is the family of God.
7.           Remember My topic: YOU ARE NOT TOO FAR FROM THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, WHICH IS THE FAMILY OF GOD, BUT ONE THING REMAINETH.
8.           I gave it to you as a nugget. I gave it to you as indices by which you can assess yourself. To know when you have entered and when you are striving to enter. But bear it in mind that “Narrowly” can never kill a bird. “Nearly” can never kill a bird.
9.           3And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] AND CURSE HIM WHO CURSES OR USES INSOLENT LANGUAGE TOWARD YOU; IN YOU WILL ALL THE FAMILIES AND KINDRED OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED[AND BY YOU THEY WILL BLESS THEMSELVES]. Amen. AMP
10.        Are you a member of this Great family of God? What does it take to be a member of this Great family? It is a universal Family because it contains nations and kindred throughout the whole earth.
11.        Are you one of them? Have you been admitted into that Family? Are you born into it or are you trying to join it? Are you sojourning there as a stranger who has a limited time to stay or are you there exercising your rights and privileges as a bona fide member born and bred in that family whose right can never be denied or tampered with throughout eternity?
12.        Genesis 28:14. I am talking about family. What is the Church? The Bride. Is it not the Kingdom of the saved? Is it not the Family of God?
13.        SONG: [We are heir of the Father. We are joint heir with the LORD. We are children of the Kingdom. We are family. We are One.]
14.        We will know the truth today as it pertains to this Great Family.
15.        For you will have descendants as many as dust! They will cover the land from east to west and from north to south; and all the nations of the earth will be blessed through you and your descendants. LB
16.       14And your offspring shall be as [countless as] the dust or sand of the ground, and you shall spread abroad to the west and the east and the north and the south;
17.       And BY YOU AND YOUR OFFSPRING SHALL ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED... Do we have God here? Do we have His offspring here?
18.       There is no Scripture that says that the offspring of God shall be exterminated from the earth or is limited to Onitsha, Anambra or Mbaise. It encompasses the whole world. That is why we call it a Great Family. That is why the Bride is drawn from the four corners of the earth, and we know who they are that constitute the members of the Family of God.
19.       You will place yourself where you belong today. I am not here to fool anybody because I have come to the end of all things.
20.       If you join anybody’s family, you can be there for years. You might be born in another man’s family courtesy of your ancestors that sojourned there. The truth is that you are still a stranger. Whenever matters concerning the Family is discussed, you are excluded.
21.       They may love you to the point of even allotting some portions of land to you for farming and building your structure, but they know that one day, you must go. If they do not ask you to go, events will ask you to go.
22.       That is why a wise man does not sojourn in his maternal home for too long. If you do not go home in life, you must go home in death. True or false?
23.       But is it so with a bona fide, legitimate child born in that family? No leave. No transfer. Even if he is mad, he is a member of that family. Crippled or blind, he is a member. Even if he is an imbecile, he is a member. You can deny him of every other thing but not the membership of that Great Family. Why? That is where his umbilical cord is buried.
24.       I am coming to something. There is something in being a real citizen. That is why William Branham said, “Nobody joins the Family of God, for the point where you joined is where you will be disjointed.”
25.       You must be born into The Family for you to have claim over ownership or any rights and privileges due to the members of that Family. Amen.
26.       Genesis 12:14 Amplified version of the Bible. We are talking about the first Family whose extension is here today where we have found ourselves with both the visible and invisible signs as proof that we are not erring.
27.       Both visible and invisible signs as a proof that we have arrived. There is continuum. It is a continuum. Now is our turn. Amen.
28.       I want you to be firmly established where no devil, nor devilish suggestion can make you to shake or begin to query yourself, that even if you err, you know you have erred, and you know your way back.
29.       YOU COULD DENY THE PRODIGAL SON EVERYTHING, BUT NOT THE HERITAGE OF HIS FATHER. True or false? He knew he was prodigious. He knew he was erring. Did anybody point him back? What brought him back? He faulted himself. Situation brought him back to his senses. He realized his instincts. Courageously, he went back.
30.       THAT IS WHY, AS MANY AS PROCEEDED FROM THIS FAMILY, MUST GO BACK TO THIS FAMILY IN LIFE OR IN DEATH. You do not need to begin to trouble a sheep to produce wool. Whether the sheep is alive or dead, wool is there. I am coming to something.
31.       THE MORE YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, THE HAPPIER YOU WILL BE WITH THIS FAITH AND THE STRONGER YOUR FAITH WILL BE ESTABLISHED ON A FIRM FOUNDATION. YOU CAN KNOW WHEN THE DEVIL IS TALKING AND WHEN GOD IS TALKING, FOR ANYBODY TALKING CONTRARY TO THAT WHICH YOU ARE, WILL YOU LISTEN?
32.        Who can know you more than yourself. Who knows the spirit that is in a man more than that man? Who does not know whose interest he is serving? I know the Man whose interest I am serving. I am not claiming to be what I am not. I am not making a false claim.
33.        It is just like My son, Wisdom. You cannot come and tell them, “I am claiming my father as my father. Son of Man is my father. I am claiming.”  I do not need to claim. I am making an assertion. I am asserting, “THIS IS MY FATHER. EVEN IF I AM A CRIMINAL, THIS IS MY FATHER. WHATEVER I AM, THIS IS MY FATHER.” Amen.
34.        And I will show you indices whereby you will know whether who you are calling your father is really your father. Maybe you have many fathers. But to us, we have One Father.
35.       14And your offspring shall be as [countless as] the dust or sand of the ground, and you shall spread abroad to the west and the east and the north and the south;
36.       And BY YOU AND YOUR OFFSPRING SHALL ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED SHALL ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED AND BLESS THEMSELVES.
37.       They will be blessed and they will in turn, bless themselves. They will be blessed through Him. And they themselves will be blessing one to another. You will never see any Cain. You will never see any Cain who was just making a mere claim. Amen.
38.       I go back to the Scriptures again. The Book of Deuteronomy chapter 29 from verse 18 through 22. Do not query Me until I come down.
39.       18The day that any of you—man or woman,... The day anyone of you that are here as children of the Most High God, members of the Family of God drawn from all the four corners of the earth, united in one Family, by one Spirit are we all baptized into one Family and we can see the Father of us all.
40.       Can’t you see the Father of us all? One. One Father. We do not have two fathers. Though we may have many mothers, we have One Father, for God is a polygamist, married to all the nations of the world as He wished and as He wishes.
41.       Pay attention. Any day any of you who are bona fide members of this Great family that have the All-living and All-knowing God, the Creator of Heaven and earth as your Father and God; any day, any of you, man or woman, young or old;
42.       Pay attention, you that are religionists, murderers. You do not want to help your people because you know that you are a stranger to the household of God and you are merely hanging about.
43.       A STRANGER CANNOT METAMORPHOSE INTO A CITIZEN OR REAL OWNER. THERE IS A GREAT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A LAND OWNER AND A LANDLORD. YOU CAN BE A LANDLORD AND NOT A LAND OWNER.
44.       That is why, whenever you dispose of a property because you are the landlord, the owners of the land have a percentage, although the price of the land has been paid over and over.
45.       And as you keep on disposing, so they will keep on collecting their percentages, for they are the land owners. You are a land lord, a purchaser holding it under free hold. Who are the owners of the land? That is what I am saying.
46.       I want to know who owns this land. I want to rule My Papa’s land. Do you want to rule your Papa’s land? I want to control My Papa’s land. I want to know who owns this land.
47.       And I want to differentiate the owner from the landlord. Landlord changes hand. Ownership does not change hand. Ownership is by family. Landlord is by individual.
48.       Remember it was ownership of land that killed Naboth, for he could not compromise ownership. That was his everlasting inheritance. Amen.
49.       Bon Diuka said we are sharing our land marking the boundaries. Everybody will know where his own boundaries are.
50.       18The day that any of you—man or woman, family or tribe of Israel... Remember, you are the Israel of God. Is it not the Bible? Are you not the Israel of God? You the Word of God has come to and you have believed and are obeying, you are the Israel of God.
51.       18The day that any of you—man or woman, family or tribe of Israel—begins to turn away from the Lord our God...
52.       If you begin to turn away from the reality to fairy tales; you begin to turn away from the reality to mere fairy tale by talking nonsense, by reverting to the old way we had long ago discarded because of it weakness and unprofitability, and you are renewing it again because you want to showcase yourself as a man of authority whose words must be final, watch what will happen to you and those who will pay attention to you.
53.       18The day that any of you—man or woman, family or tribe of Israel—begins to turn away from the Lord our God and desires to worship these gods of other nations,...
54.       Any day you desire to be like people out there; You begin to pattern yourself after the fashion of this world; You want to be like them; You begin to use them as your example; You have no other restrictions; Nothing differentiating you as a Seed of God and they as children of Belial; Any day it begins to happen in you; Any day it is traced in you, be it man or woman, young or old, see what will happen
55.       ...that day a root will be planted that will grow bitter and poisonous fruit.19“Let no one blithely think, when he hears the warnings of this curse, ‘I shall prosper even though I walk in my own stubborn way!’ What? I shall prosper even though I walk in my own stubborn way!’ 
56.       This is what you might be thinking in your heart. I will still prosper. Let them say whatever they want to say. Let me walk in my stubborn way. I will still make it. Do not worry. Hear the Word of the LORD.
57.       For there are some that are very powerful, obstinate, unrepentant, incorrigible heathens among us. Strangers that have muddled things up in our midst. Mixed multitude that grew up among us, until you begin to think that they are one of us.
58.       These are the people that spoil our philosophy of life by introducing dangerous lifestyles, worldly lifestyles, even introducing characters we cannot sustain, lifestyles we cannot sustain, which even our means and resources cannot afford. People that indulge in ostentatious living that cannot be afforded, I mean, by people that have condescended to men of low estate.
59.       There is no way they can moderate their lives again, for they have been given over to wrong passions and wrong appetites. Why? After knowing the truth, they could not live by the truth. And the LORD has handed them over to the spirit of delusion to behave as they wish.
60.       You must know these people by their fruits and by their manifestations. Be careful lest you follow after a bad example.
61.       19“Let no one blithely think, when he hears the warnings of this curse, ‘I shall prosper even though I walk in my own stubborn way!’ 20For the Lord will not pardon!
62.       For the LORD will do what? ...not pardon! His anger and jealousy will be hot against that man. Will be what? His anger and jealousy will be hot against that man.
63.       Against that man. Against that woman. Against that youth who has stubbornly refused to pay heed to the truth, which even Nicodemus confirmed and even confirmed that He that came, came for the Almighty God to give them the truth, for the law came by Moses.
64.       Grace and truth came through the Lord Jesus Christ who is standing here today as The Resurrected Body for there to be continuity as the root and offspring of David, which is the annex and extension of Abraham’s family.
65.       And you were told by your prophets if He is coming again this time, He will get married. He will have children, so that there will be a continuity from where you will learn.
66.       What if He never left you with a seed from where He will be propagating. Won’t you be like Sodom and Gomorrah who will stubbornly refuse to abide by the truth which you have confirmed to be true.
67.       You say you believe, but one thing remaineth. You are still conforming to the dictates of the world, using the world as your example to buttress your unbelief. Using the world, “Am I the only one? Is it not what is obtainable everywhere?” For that reason, you justify a condemnable act.
68.       See what God said, “He will never pardon you.” He will never. Rather He will descend upon you with His angry displeasure. Will your heart bear it? Will your heart not faint by the time He must have finished with you? Will you still exist?
69.        20For the Lord will not pardon! His anger and jealousy will be hot against that man. His anger and jealousy will be hot against that man. And all the curses written in this book shall lie heavily upon him,... Amen!
70.        All the curses that have been pronounced by God and even documented will follow such a man who remained stubborn to the truth after knowing the truth but still went ahead behaving like those who worship other gods and also living a life of worship of other gods, and denied the Living God he has seen with his eyes, confessed even with his own mouth that He [God] came with the truth, but the truth is not effective in your life.
71.        God will not give you pardon. Rather His anger which will be hot will befall you and the people you misled. That is not where it will end. All the curses will follow you and all that you misled. That a man deceived Me, is it an excuse? Whoever that God hates, He gives over to deceptive spirit.
72.        If God loves you, he guides you against error. I do not know if there could be a better day tomorrow than today. But even if there would be, let Me enjoy today. Amen.
73.        Remember, YOU ARE NOT TOO FAR FROM THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, BUT ONE THING REMAINETH
74.        ...and the Lord will blot out his name from under heaven. Alleluia! Who will do that? The LORD will do what? Blot out his name from under heaven. Brethren, is this not frightening. If you are not afraid of God, of all human beings, you should be pitied.
75.        I want to see somebody who will hear this truth and still remain stubborn, believing that he will prosper anyhow, that God is kidding or that God is a joker.
76.       21The Lord will separate that man from all the tribes of Israel, to pour out upon him all the curses (which are recorded in this book) that befall those who break this contract. Amen.
77.       Those that break this contract, this agreement, this Covenant because we have entered into a contractual agreement with the Almighty God, that in life and in death, we will worship Him, for He is our Maker, our Creator and our all and all. We could not have come into existence without God.
78.       22Then your children and the generations to come and the foreigners that pass by from distant lands shall see the devastation of the land and the diseases the Lord will have sent upon it. LB
