GOD'S PROMISE IS FULFILLED
FIRST BIBLE LESSON: REVELATION 22:2-3
In the midst of street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruits every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there was no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him.
SECOND BIBLE LESSON: MATTHEW 13:41-43
The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them that do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who has ears to hear, let them hear.
GOLDEN TEXT: MATTHEW 19:28-29
And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sister, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
Brethren that is the promise which the King of kings and Lord of lords had made to his people. Ab initio, that had been His promise and this promise is nothing but the truth. Because it is said, heaven and earth will pass away, but the word of God shall not pass away until all is consummated. (Matt 5:18)
It is a pitiful situation that all of you and indeed all the inhabitants of the world read the Bible but do not realise this promise of God. Satan deceives you that if you follow him (Satan) you will have money and motor car, become a king and have eternal life. This is total falsehood. He, Satan, is the father of lies and the lord of lies.
Now you are going to realise the glory of God and what this gospel means. He made a promise unto Abraham and that promise was also fulfilled. It is said, Hast thou faith? Have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he allows.
IF YOU HOLD ON TENACIOUSLY TO THE GOSPEL GIVEN YOU, NOTHING WILL SHAKE YOU. It is because of the faith that you have in your heart that you can acquire righteousness. It is with the heart that one believes and has righteousness.
If you believe the promises of God in your heart, and you accept that if one serves God and forsakes stealing, lying, anger, diabology, and other vices but one surrenders oneself entirely unto God, the promises of God will be fulfilled in him, nothing in the whole wide world can shake you.
This promise was not made for thieves, prostitutes, native doctors, murderers, or tricksters. It was meant for those who believe in Him and do His will. All along, you have not known the intricacies of this kingdom and so you came in as if to play. That is why you tell lies, steal, indulge in diabologies, get angry, quarrel and collect money from people under false pretenses.
The message of this gospel is not quoted according to Olumba. It is the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ whose name you call and not mine. He told them the Son of man shall send forth his angels and they shall gather out of the kingdom all things that offend, WHETHER THEY BE MEN, OR SPIRITS, OR TREES, OR WATER WHICH HINDER THE CHILDREN OF GOD FROM SEEING THIS GLORY AND SHINNING FORTH IN ThE KINGDOM OF THEIR FATHER, SUCH PHENOMENA WILL BE ELIMINATED BY THE ANGELS. There and then the children will shine as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. So says the Lord of lords.
If there is anything that offends or obstructs the children of God from enjoying this kingdom, such things will be removed completely from the surface of the earth to enable the children of God to shine. If there is anything that prevents the children of God from serving their God as would be expected, the angels would eliminate such things. Whether it be rain that disturbs when the children of God want to rejoice in their Father, the angels will call it to order. Whether it be wind, sun, man, spirit, death, or hades, which disturbs or prevents the children of God from operating, such things will be removed from the surface of the earth. You have heard it said that "then shall the righteous shine forth."
Only the righteous will be left. What about those destroyed? They are the unrighteous - the thieves, native doctors, liars, fornicators, and the recalcitrants. Those who will shine are the righteous.
He has given us a guarantee that we should not take vengeance unto ourselves. If a person smites you, do not smite back, if a person curses you, or steals your property, or hates you, do not retaliate, because he will send his angels who will remove all such persons.
If He has given you such a guarantee, if you were to believe him, why would you even shut your door. Leave your door open and go on your business. Let any thief come into the house and take any of your property, and see if Our Lord Jesus Christ will not send forth His angels to remove such a thief.
Yet a little while, and even now you will notice that while you are on your way, no person will attempt to hinder you. Whether police, or soldier, or government, or whatever there may be, no person can obstruct you because people have seen the injury inflicted on them for disturbing the children of God. This is to show to you that His word is sacrosanct. There is no word of God without power. His word is ever sure.
You are true witnesses that we do not hold matchet, gun, we have neither money nor men, nor highly educated men, nor men of prominence. There are no lawyers, magistrates, or rulers. We have none of such things but what is the weapon with which we fight this war and conquer? The men of the world have money, they are governors, presidents, prime ministers, royal highnesses, native doctors, professors, owners of landed properties. They have craftiness, and ammunitions of war. They vow that Brotherhood will not be heard of, that it should be taken away because it has no society strong men. Can you not realise the handiwork of Our Lord Jesus Christ? Are His word not fulfilled?
Without Him, who would be able to speak, preach or practise the Word of God? Where will you have the strength? The assurance is not for you alone but also for all the children of God the world over, that the Son of Man shall send forth his angels, and whoever rises up against the services of God shall be swept out. Whether it be wind, tree, rock or whatever, will be gathered out of his kingdom, but the righteous will shine forth.
I want to use these situations to illustrate to you that the Father is here, the Son is here, the Holy Spirit is here. Without Him, who will be able to speak in the world? If He did not reign over all the heavens and the earth, who would have been able to preach the Word of God, either in this country or in Europe or in America, or in other places?
The people of the world had testified and sworn that whatever phenomenon is called God does not exist, but they alone exist. No prophet has ever offended against the world. No angel has ever offended against the people of the world. But should the inhabitants of the world learn that a person is a prophet of God, they would demand that the prophet's head be brought.
What sin did John the Baptist commit? John rebuked Herod that it was not expedient for him to take the wife of his half-brother, Philip. It was for this reason and because of the other evils which John pointed out to him, that he feared the people and cast him into prison like a fowl.
Again because of rebuking Herod that it was not fair for him to marry the wife of his half-brother, the woman bore malice against John. When Herod's wife's daughter danced during the birthday celebration of King Herod, Herod swore upon himself that he would give to the damsel whatever she required for dancing so dexterously. The damsel not knowing what to demand, asked her mother, who instead of suggesting that her daughter should ask Herod to abdicate his throne for her, rather told her to ask for John's head in a charger.
Notice why people argue that there is no God. Herod detailed soldiers right there to produce the head of John who neither ate nor drank. The forerunner of Our Lord Jesus Christ was beheaded in cold blood in the prison. Who was there to question?
What sin did Our Lord Jesus Christ commit? He healed the sick, raised the dead, and went about doing good to people and caring for the welfare of orphans, the afflicted and the oppressed. But they with all pomp and power, got hold of him as a chicken. Oh man! The person who headed this conspiracy was the high priest for that year, which means a priest of God ruling over the church, and his name was Caiaphas.
It started when Lazarus was raised from death, and a huge group of people followed Him. (John 11:45). For this reason, when they were in the council, he (Caiaphas) told the people, "You do not know anything, do you know that it is expedient that one person should die, than the whole nation perishing. (John 11:50). That is to say, if they would successfully kill Him as a hen, the followers would scatter and they would take the disciples to themselves. Right from that day, they had secret meetings and promised a handsome reward to whoever would betray Him.
They from there began to trail and keep watch over Him, and finally arrested and killed Him like a hen for no just cause. This they did so that they would not allow the light of life to shine forth to men. For telling them that what they were doing was not good, that they should refrain and follow God, they promised it would not be on their land, but continue to oppress the poor, kill at will, control the earth, believing that God was not in existance.
Observe and you will see the way of life of the people of the world right from the time of Abel. What did Abel do? Abel loved God and because of this, he sacrificed the fattest ram unto God. That was all he did. His brother Cain took offence and killed him for doing such a thing unto God. The people of the world frighten people not to speak the truth, or go to church so that they might not die young. For this reason, every person runs away from God.
It is for this reason that God gives this blessed assurance that the Son of man shall send forth his angels and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and they which do iniquity. Anything therefore that raises its ugly head, or prevents them from rendering services to God, or disturbs the children of God, shall be totally eradicated.
We have a spiritual song which I have not heard for about ten years now. Whether you do sing at outstations I do not know, but I do not hear it here. It says do not run away when lions come in, because the lions have been chained and locked up.
The people of the world have been warning you not to go to Brotherhood, that if you go, you will go naked and Obu will deceive you later on. They will ask you what you will eat if you serve in Brotherhood without pay. This happens because it is the fullness of time.
What is the situation today? You were advised to withdraw from Brotherhood. Is the care of the body greater than what the promise of the God can contain? Deny that you have not witnessed the manifestation of the promise of God. I thank the Father because here today is Pastor Henshaw. When he came to Brotherhood initially, his relations warned him to walk circumspectly with "that man" because whoever professes to be a man of God normally dies a pauper.
When I heard this, I told him that if the God of his relations is poor, our God is not poor. Today, he is landlord of many houses. They now turn around to allege that he uses the power of Beelzebub to get money, and not the power of God. The contention now is that Pastor Henshaw's present condition cannot be a purely God's affairs.
Sister Ebong is also a victim of similar allegations. Who tells you that if a person comes to Brotherhood and surrenders himself to God, he will be poor? Have you not heard the promise of God? If you have been dancing at the periphery, rearrange your thinking and come in the open and show yourself as a Brotherhood member.
When Pastor Henshaw came, he had neither money nor good health, nor anything at all. But now if the census of rich people is taken in this locality, he is one of them. From which source did he get his money? Is it not Our Lord Jesus Christ who has given it to him?
All those who intend to come in doubt the genuineness of what we do. They ask if they will also go to Beelzebub. Have you not heard the promise of Our Lord Jesus Christ? He says that whoever sincerely serves Him, in the regeneration, when He shall sit on the throne, He will make you a pillar, (Rev 3:12) and a king, and you will have wealth, and also have everlasting life.
It is said that on either side of the river was the tree of life which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruits every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations, and there shall be no more curse. (Rev 2:2-3). Has it not happened accordingly? When you want to know the means of healing am I the one who heals? Is it not that great man? Is it not the fulfillment of His words of longstanding promise?
According to his words, the moment a person says "let," his sickness lets. Sickness is taken to the hospital and cannot be healed. It is taken around many places and even to Europe without success, and after all hope is lost, people will advice that it be taken to Brotherhood. When the sick person is brought, even if a small child gives him water to drink, he will testify he is healed. Yet people will argue that it is juju or Beelzebub. Do they not read the Bible passage? Are those statements not fulfilled today? I am not the doer. It is the Father.
What does Brotherhood use in doing her work? This Holy Biakpan water is an open stream. Holy Oil is made out of water. When you look at it, what more is there apart from water? What else do you find that heals the sick? Have you ever found one drug which is a panacea for all sicknesses? When you look at the Holy Oil, it changes to red, to yellow, to green, and to pure white from time to time.
I am not the doer. It is the fulfillment of His promise. It is used in healing all nations. When a person suffers from cholera and is taken to a Bethel and you say "let thanks," cholera will leave him. Kwashiorkor and whatever type of sickness will be cured by the pronouncement of "Let."
Why do you doubt? It is argued that the power is inside a box, or in a secret chamber, or at Biakpan. Can you not see the source of the power now? All the inhabitants of the world attest to the fact that there is power in Brotherhood, but they also argue that that power does not come from God. They only argue because they do not read the scriptures.
Today I am not preaching any gospel to you. I am only reminding and reassuring you of the promise of God and its fulfillment, so that you who go to the hospital, may desist from doing so. Attendance at the hospital is the reason for your sickness. The Great Doctor who is here does not require any admixture. Only knock your head on the ground and make two or three sentences and all is over. He does not waste time. If you have no eyes, He gives you eyes, if you have no child, he gives you children. That had been his promise. He is doing all things.
Let our First Lesson be read so that you can take your stand. I know that this January some of you begin the year with medical checkup. As at now some tablets can still be found in your handbags and as soon as you move out of this premises you will take the tablets.
This means that you have no faith in God. Right from today, throw away such things. There is no kind of sickness that God cannot heal. What kind of trouble do you think can surpass God?
Do not even bother about prayers. It has been his promise. Your prayer does not avail anything. He has come to fulfill His promise all over the world, to show to you that this is His kingdom.
First Bible Lesson: Revelation 22:2-3
"In the midst of the street of it and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruits every month: and the leaves of the tree were for healing the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him."
What is read to you is the situation of things in this kingdom. Have you ever found any person who has not passed through a medical or nursing, or midwifery school but there is no type of sickness that he cannot heal? Can you not see this as the fulfillment of the promise of God?
When a person brings his problems, and it is solved, the people will allege that there is more to it than a church because it has never been known that churches heal such type of sicknesses. They conclude therefore that it is an unseen power that is used. A native doctor testifies that there is no preparation of concoction that is effective enough to cure. The medical doctors complain that there are no drugs to cure the patients.
Occultist and others also complain of lack of power but recommend that complicated cases be taken to Brotherhood. And indeed when such cases are brought, you only draw water from the pot for the sick, and the sickness will be healed. Will you deny that it is healed by man? It is the promise of God, that the leaves of the tree shall be for the healing of the nations.
Even the drugs given by a medical doctor does not work. The concoctions of a native doctor does no good. All the more people receive such treatments, the more they die. But the moment they are brought to Brotherhood their problems are solved. It is the promise of God, not only here but all over the world. The leaves of the tree are used for healing the nations.
Do not disturb yourself any more about going for medical check up, and for other medical or diabolical examinations. We have what is greater than medical check-up. He is in your house and everywhere with you. Do not bother going to the Bethel but kneel down for Him, let His word dwell richly in your heart. PRAY HIM TO FORGIVE YOU FOR ABANDONING HIM FOR OTHER SOURCES OF POWER. APPEAL TO HIM TO TAKE AWAY YOUR SICKNESS. IN ALL THINGS CALL UPON HIM. HE PROVIDES OUR NEEDS GRATIS. WHAT THEN DO WE LOSE IN SERVING GOD?
I want to let you know that the promise of God is ever sure. When He speaks no matter how remote or immediate the time, the promise of God must be made manifest. I have repeatedly told you that you do not understand this kingdom of God. It is neither here at 34 Ambo nor in Calabar or in Lagos or in any particular location. It covers the whole world. This promise is for all the children of God throughout all generations. There is no more diabology. There is no more cure and do not bother yourself any longer because it is God who now heals.
It is said that his servants shall serve Him! Is it not fulfilled? And there shall be no more cure, no pains, no sickness. The complaints of pain and of sickness you were born with, which carried you to many places, upon all your wanderings about, could you find a cure? But here you are, without offering any prayers, your sickness is cured. It is not an act of man.
If anybody argues, let him experiment. You can prove it with those in the psychiatric hospitals now. When you go to them, if they confess their sins and undergo baptism, their mental condition will be healed. But since they do not believe, they continue with their condition. All the patients lying in the hospitals are victims of the Holy Spirit. Only confessions and baptism will return them to normalcy. They are not sick per se. If they only confess and are baptised, they are healed.
The same thing happens with those in prison. If they confess their sins and are baptised, they will gain their release because they are kept there as a result of their sins. If we confess and are baptised, no matter what kind of sickness we suffer, we will be healed.
There is no need embarking on any self-help ventures. The Savior has come and all His promises are fulfilled.
When you shout on Olumba Olumba Obu, I am not the doer of this work. Many people claim to heal. If somebody receives from you two or five or one thousand naira for doing the work, he is overshadowed with darkness. That is the problem which many people here face.
Many people complain that there is some secret in Brotherhood. But there is no basis for such complaint. Once you confess and you are baptised, your problems are solved. The same holds true for every person. GOING TO BETHEL TO RECEIVE PRAYERS IS AN ACT OF UNBELIEF. It is your unbelief that makes you sick. Where will you go to? Knock your head on the ground, your Father is alive. SINCE IT IS HIS PROMISE WHEN YOU PRAY HE WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. THE ONLY CONDITION IS THAT YOU SHOULD NOT COMMIT ANY ACT OF SIN.
All those who are prepared to serve God, should always move forward. Do not turn back. Do not commit fornication again. Fornication defiles the body. Stealing contaminates you. DOUBT IS YOUR PROBLEM. When prayer is offered, you open your eyes and question the source of power. You keep your eyes open to observe when "that man" will emerge from "that river." Doubt is your problem.
If you were to believe that God does everything, and so you surrender yourself to God, resting assured that His promises are true, you would neither be sick nor have any encumbrances. If you conceive in your heart that Olumba has done this work, you have failed. That is your downfall. I am not the doer of this work.
WHEREVER YOU ARE, IT IS THE PROMISE OF GOD TO THOSE WHO ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD. THOSE WHO HAVE SURRENDERED THEMSELVES COMPLETELY UNTO HIM HAVE NO PROBLEMS. IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE WHO SERVE HIM IT IS NOT OF YOUR MAKING. IT IS THE FULFILLMENT OF HIS WORD THAT HIS SERVANTS SHALL SERVE HIM. DO NOT THEREFORE BOAST ABOUT IT.
Can you realise where else you fail? All of you here have come to benefit yourselves. Nobody has come to serve Him. You have come to receive and take to the world for your self-glorification. NONE OF YOU SEEKS FOR GOD'S OWN GLORY. Note that it is stated that His servants shall serve Him. For now what prevents you from serving God? Do you not see how you are shining as the sun in your Father's Kingdom? This is the time for us to serve and glorify Him.
This year 1987 is a peculiar year because the children of God do great works to uplift the Father's name. It is given that we should do no less than glorify God. DO NOT SEEK FOR YOUR OWN GLORY OR FOR THE GLORY OF ANY OTHER PERSON. LET US ALL FROM THIS YEAR ON GLORIFY GOD. If we do that, what prevents us from benefiting from Him? This Gospel is given to all the inhabitants of the world so that you may always realise the promise of God.
I do not intend to overload you, the second lesson will now be read. Listen attentively so that you may hear what He had promised to humanity.
SECOND BIBLE LESSON: MATTHEW 13:41-43
"The Son of man shall send forth his angels and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that do offend, and them that do iniquity; and they shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who has ears to hear, let him hear."
Brethren have you heard that? When you are walking, people complain that you do not walk alone. It is true. In your house there is a guard. In your car, there is a guard. An angel is taking charge of your farm. Whoever points at you, attempts to obstruct you, the angels will eliminate him immediately.
This explains why people complain that they are disturbed by Brotherhood members. You innocently wonder what you do to them when you do not even pray. But in spite of your innocence, there are incessant cries by people of Brotherhood's attempt to kill them. You are not the one.
He knows Himself and the angels know their work. You are given guards and for this reason you have no problems. Continue doing good; speaking the truth, pronouncing no curses. Do not lie, nor steal, nor quarrel, nor begrudge anybody, but continue doing whatever good thing that there is because we have protection.
You heard about the Briton who followed after members of Brotherhood in London, accusing them of worshipping a black man.
Brethren arrived at Mill Hill Bethel without responding to his abuses and he turned back. The brethren did not give any response.
That night God revealed Himself to the man. Because of this revelation, he now wears white soutane, and more to this, he has resigned his appointment. He is now a full-time missionary and he claims he has seen God whom he wanted. All persuasions that he should try to continue with his former work proved abortive. He maintains there is virtually no need because he has seen God. He now serves God with dedication.
If you were to harken to the instructions of God and not to the flesh, not be involved in either pronouncing woe on people or blaspheming the name of God or fighting, but in stead, you forsake everything, you will witness the manifestation of God's promise.
Our Lord Jesus Christ had promised that He would remove all those who sin, all those things that cause offence, and cast them into a furnace of fire. Then the children of God will shine in their Father's Kingdom.
If a governor, or president or commissioner and other government functionaries have bodyguards, how much more the children of God? For now a good many people and those who know themselves do not speak evil against Brotherhood, neither do they persecute members because they know the consequence. Except for a foolish person, there is nothing like blasphemy against Brotherhood. When you come here with foolishness, your foolishness will live after you.
You are true witnesses to all the calumnies against Brotherhood and the work done by Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is neither done by Obu, nor by me, nor by you, nor by any other person. He had promised that the Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that do offend, and they which do iniquity. Whoever attempts to hinder a person from the services of God will be confronted by angels. It is not of your making but it is time to give God the glory.
Who hinders you from serving God? Whoever wants to serve God, the way is wide open for him to do so. You are given this as the last warning. If you see any person who wants to serve God, do not hinder him, do not cause any problems for him, so that you may not wound yourself.
This statement is made by Our Lord Jesus Christ to me, to you and to all the inhabitants of the world. When you want to hinder your wife, or child, or any member of your family who wants to serve God, remember the gospel of today. You who want to constitute yourself into a stumbling block so that your brother may fall, remember this gospel.
You call yourself a Brotherhood but are you not a stumbling block to your own brother? Have you not defamed him? Have you not made trouble with him? In the past you used to complain that God does not react very quickly; but now he sends his angels to remove immediately everything that offends. Because this is the time when the righteous has to shine forth as the sun. The sun does not shine like you. Wherever you go to, your illumination brightens the whole place. If you wear this garment to the market, into a car, or to wherever you go, the people will shake.
Brethren can you not realise that right now there is no fear again for the children of God? If you cannot serve God, you have yourself to blame because there is no stumbling block in the way to serving God. Do not quarrel again with any person. Do not tell lies. Do not take any court action against any person.
We all have a right to serve Him. Whoever wants to serve Him is free to do so because there is no hindrance. Whoever wants to obstruct you from serving God will injure himself. You are not responsible for this. You do not know how it comes about. He alone knows about all.
Brethren, we should give glory to Jehovah God and His Christ because all His words have been fulfilled. People killed Peter and the other prophets of old. They even killed the Christ. And since they cannot do anything to Brotherhood, they now say that it is not of God. They also say that we are wearing God as a mask. I ask them also to put on God as a mask, and do the work we are doing.
You can see that there is no evil thing that any person can do because angels are protecting you. If you tell someone that there is nothing in Brotherhood, he will not believe you. He maintains that there is something. What is there apart from what you are seeing?
Brethren, let the Golden Text be read so that you may realise the fulfillment of the promise of God.
GOLDEN TEXT: MATTHEW 19:28-29
"And Jesus said unto them, verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed me, in the regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit on the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my name's sake shall receive a hundredfold and shall inherit everlasting life."
That is the promise of God for all the inhabitants of the world; whether you are a white man or a black man or colored, whenever you surrender yourself into the service of God, this promise is for you.
Do not forget the emphasis that the promise is for all those who forsake everything and follow Him. The promise is not for you if you have not forsaken everything and follow Him. Because many people come into Brotherhood poor, and they are sent to gather wealth from here, they continue to pack things out of Brotherhood to their homes.
In the regeneration what shall be their gain? THEY WILL GO EMPTY-HANDED. You can see that no one can deceive God. If you do not forsake land, brother, and homes you will go empty-handed. The promise is for those who surrendered themselves completely to serve God, and it is as sure as daylight.
You will see someone who erects a storey building the moment he comes into Brotherhood, and you will argue that he has money through beelzebub. It is rather means that he believes in God. You will find someone who forsakes fornication, drinking, and every evil thing. It means that he believes in the promise. All those who come here with half minds are those who do not believe, and the promise is not for them. They will go back empty-handed.
We have heard what Christ said that whoever does not hate his father, and mother, and husband, and wife, and brothers and sisters and his own life cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14:26).
This promise is for those who believe. That is why Paul says that those things he would have counted as gain, he counts them but loss. He is the example of those who believe in the promise.
The government will promise to do something but they will fail to do it. Your father will promise that he will do something for you but he fails to do it. The town will also fail to carry out their promise. Any person can fail to carry out his promise, but this is the promise of God which never fails. And I am taking my stand on it.
I am ready to walk naked and be called a ghost, mermaid, juju, or any name. You can pluck out my eye, you can say whatever you like. I know that this promise is sure and I stand fast on it. What hinders us?
We are told that the leaves of the tree was used in healing the nations; and there was no more curse, but the throne of God and the lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve Him. What prevents you from serving Him?
He shall send out His angels to remove everything that causes offence so that the children of God may shine forth like the sun in their Father's Kingdom.
There is no juju or apparition which hinders you. You are the source of all your problems. When you see many Brotherhood members, you say there is something the Father gives to them. What do I give to them apart from the word of God? The moment you practise the word of God, this promise is fulfilled in you.
You are to forsake fornication, anger, lying, taking of drugs but you say you will forsake them gradually. Do you think this promise is fulfilled in you? God has no business with you because you do not believe in Him. This kingdom belongs to those who serve Him. All the wealth and glory is for those who serve Him.
Heaven and earth belong to God; the world and its fullness thereof is His. Who are those who shall receive the blessing from the Lord? Those whose hearts are pure and whose hands are clean, who have not given their souls to vanity. These will receive the blessing from the Lord. From today we should forsake everything and accept to serve God so that we may inherit His promise.
Brethren, I will not take you further than this. One stroke of the cane is sufficient to the wise. He who has ears, let him hear. May God bless His Holy Words. Amen
THANK YOU FATHER.
