THE TIMES THAT WE LIVE IN: THE END OF TIME
THE UNIVERSAL LEADER IN THE YEAR 2001 IS BORN OF A WOMAN
Text: Revelation 12:1-17
"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels. And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our Brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."
This is the time of the fulfillment of the revelations to John the Divine which is found in the Book of Revelation Chapters one to twenty-two. If you read the Bible from Genesis to Malachi, you will not find the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. This is because it is the Old Testament; and the Old Testament speaks about the things of old. Here the Prophets prophesied about His coming and these prophecies are fulfilled from St. Matthew to Jude. If you read through these chapters you will not see Brotherhood of the Cross and Star in its full context. When you read the book of Revelation you will understand that Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is the New Kingdom of God.
Today, it is my intention to reveal to you the mysteries concerning Jehovah God and His Christ. I have come to reveal to you the second advent of Our Lord Jesus Christ. I want to reveal He who has brought salvation to the sons of men, and has saved them from ruin. We have been told that Adam was created from the clay of the earth. It would have been possible for God to make Adam to descend from the sky. There has never been a time since the creation of the world that a human being had descended from the sky into this mundane world. Adam was first created from the dust of the earth. Apart from him all human beings are born through the womb of a woman. All of you know that Eve is the first Mother on earth. It would have been possible for God to cause Eve to descend from the sky but you have been told that she was created from the rib of Adam, during which time God sent Adam into a very deep sleep, and a rib from his side was used to create Eve.
At no time has any human being ever flown down from above like a bird, into this earth plane. If this was to happen, where would such a person land?
Before Moses was born his mother was pregnant for nine months. Before he was born there were numerous prophecies about his birth. The prophecies said that he was going to be a Prophet greater in power and glory than even Pharaoh. When Pharaoh heard this, he sent out his soldiers to kill all the small children aged from three months downwards. This was the first massacre of innocent children. During this massacre Pharaoh hoped that Moses too would be killed. All the prophecies in the Old Testament were prophecies about this great prophet. You are all aware of the mysteries surrounding the birth of Moses.
Immediately the mother knew that her child was going to be killed, she quickly made a basket and placed the child inside it and carried it to the riverside. There she placed the basket by the river and instructed her daughter to follow the basket and see what would happen. Suddenly a miracle happened. Pharaoh's daughter came to take her bath in the river and discovered the basket with Moses inside it. Moses' sister then emerged and asked the daughter of Pharaoh whether she needed a maid to care for the child. She accepted, and Moses' sister went and informed her mother who came and took charge of nursing Moses.
St. Matthew 1: 22 To The End
"Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, (Isaiah 7:14), saying: BEHOLD A VIRGIN SHALL BRING FORTH A SON, and they shall call is name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is: GOD WITH US. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife. And knew her not till she had brought forth her first born son; and he called his name JESUS". When you read about the nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ from St. Matthew, Chapter 1 vs. 22 to the end, you will discover the prophecy of Isaiah. (Isaiah 7:14). At this time David and the other patriarchs were not yet born but there was a prophecy about the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The statement that the angel made "God with us" means that Our Lord Jesus Christ is God Himself. It would not have been so easy to say that Mary delivered God. This was a way of camouflaging Him. The real truth is that Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Almighty God. Just as a sensible person cannot go out naked, in the same way God cannot appear naked. He must cover Himself with human flesh, so that He may not be easily identified. Can you see how people are confused? We are told that a virgin will conceive and bring forth a male child and his name shall be called Emmanuel.
"And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS."
This vision was given to Mary during her service in the temple. At the age of seven, God revealed Himself to her. Mary had taken the vow of a Nazarite which is a period during which a person devotes his or her time to serving in the Temple. It was during this time that Mary had the revelation that she would give birth to God. If Mary conceived and gave birth to God, who do you think will descend from the sky? If Moses who was a brother to Aaron was born by a woman, how do you expect anyone to emerge from the sky?
It is a very simple thing for a host of people to come down from the sky, but the result would be that all of us on earth will run away. Even if one was to descend from the sky, knowing that the earth is owned and occupied by certain persons, where will such a person stay since everywhere has been occupied? What would be his clan? To which family would he belong?
When man is in spirit, he is like a flame of fire by nature. That is why he passes through the womb of a woman which is an antidote. This is the reason why God has created the womb of a woman as a passage through which all individuals, angels and God Himself pass into the world. There is no other way through which human beings, angels, spirit and God can pass into the world except through the womb of a woman.
Man is the heaven and woman is the earth. Therefore everybody has to pass through a man into the woman before being born into the earth plane, so that God may be glorified. God can cause human beings to be born through a man but then, what would be the usefulness of woman. Just as Eve passed through Adam, it is also possible for human beings to enter the world in the same way. If it happens in this way, what would be the usefulness of women?
A person who emerges from the sky would not like to take any instructions from anyone. God who is so knowledgeable in all aspects of things has caused human beings to come down through a mother and father, who will control him and whom he will respect.
Acts 1: 9-11
"And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly towards heaven as He went up, behold two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, "Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven."
The passage read out to you, has confused the whole world! The explanation of this is that, He will come back as a human being. The world interprets it to mean that He will emerge from the sky and come down to the earth. It appears to me that the people of the world have ears but cannot hear. It is for this reason that I want to explain and expatiate on these things so that you may know the theme of our lecture this evening. That the person who will rule this world, is born of a woman.
Two angels have borne eloquent testimony that Our Lord Jesus Christ will come back as a human being. There is no other way that God can come down on earth except by the passing through the womb of a woman. Who can endure the spirit and which spirit can tolerate you? If you were to see the spirit, would you be able to withstand it? Would you say that spirit has patience? I want to point out to you that I have not added nor subtracted from the word of God written in the scriptures. I want to make it quite clear to you that if there is any person among you, who is still looking at the sky to see someone descending down, he is wasting his time because until doomsday, such a person will never come. What happened is exactly what had been prophesied by the prophets that a virgin will conceive in her womb and bring forth a child who will be called Emmanuel.
St. Luke 2 : 5-9
"To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her first born son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid."
Now that Mary has brought forth a child called Jesus, who has saved us from all the troubles, and encumbrances of the world, the ruins we were in and has taken dominion over death and taken the keys of hades? Is this not that small child called Jesus who was crucified on the cross and on the third day rose from the dead? Is this not that small baby who was born as Jesus? Have you yourself the ability to resurrect from the dead? Was Our Lord Jesus Christ the only child of His mother? (Matthew 13:55). I want to show you that eggs are eggs but some are rotten, and not everybody is the same.
The main reason why the Jews started to ask questions and disputed among themselves was because they said "How be it we know this man whence He is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence He is." (John 7:27). When the Jews saw the child Jesus, they regarded Him as an ordinary human being because he had been born through a woman. It had already been said, when Adam disobeyed God and fell short of the glory of God, that he pleaded with God to return to him. God told him that unless a holy and precious blood was shed, He would not return; and the signs Gold, Myrrh and Frankincense would mark His return.
When Our Lord Jesus Christ came, all these signs were seen. (Matt 2:11). Therefore Our Lord Jesus Christ was the real God, who came down on earth. He created man. Can angels do it? Who else has the power to create man? He is the only person who has the power to create.
When Adam and Eve defiled themselves through the sin of fornication, God left them and they were driven away from the garden of Eden. Therefore there was no way for them to atone for their sins. They used the blood of sheep, cows, etc., but they were not made perfect. He had made a promise that He would only return when a holy and precious blood was shed; and Gold, Myrrh and Frankincense would be the signs of His coming. He stated that He would be pierced with a sword and the signs would be the water, blood and spirit. (John 19:34).
When He came as the Son of man, the Son of God and God Himself, the Jews stoned Him because He called Himself the Son of God. Had He told them that He was God Himself, they would have laughed at Him and regarded Him as a demented person. How sweet does it sound in peoples ears, if anyone says that man is God? As you are all sitting down here, if any of you calls himself God, even your child will laugh at you and say "Papa I think that you are mad because man is created in the image and likeness of God therefore you cannot equate man with God." Since the creation of the world, can you mention any one person who has been able to accomplish the works that Our Lord Jesus Christ did?
Melchizedek, Moses, Elijah, Enoch and all the other patriarchs came but I want you to mention any one of them who was able to do exactly what Our Lord Jesus Christ did. Our Lord Jesus Christ said, "No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again." It is impossible for anyone to kill God. He Himself surrendered His Life.
"Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father. There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings."
When Our Lord Jesus Christ was on the cross, He said "Father into thy hands I commend my spirit." He surrendered His spirit into the hands of the Father. What actually was nailed on the cross were the sins of the whole world. After three days and three nights the spirit returned into the body of Jesus. Since then He has continued to exist.
Erroneously the church denominations who have not yet come to the accurate knowledge of the truth, claim that Our Lord Jesus Christ was taken up to heaven to sit on the right hand of His Father.
If you look at the firmament, you will not find a dwelling place there. Our Lord Jesus Christ's ascension into what they call heaven can be likened to a person who boards a plane from Calabar to Lagos. On his return he may decide to return by bus or taxi. But you will be convinced that he is still in Lagos because he has not yet returned back by air.
Who actually took away the life of Our Lord Jesus Christ? Would you say that it was Pilate or the Jews who killed Our Lord Jesus Christ? It was the sins of the whole world that Our Lord Jesus Christ crucified on the cross and not Himself. After His death the sins of mankind were atoned for, so that man may be perfect and remain undefiled, so that Christ may come in and dwell in man, since man is the temple of the most High God. That same sin which defiled you and made it impossible for God to dwell in you, is what you have gone back to commit.
When you begin to shout on top of your voice saying that Olumba Olumba Obu is God, I know that some of you are deceivers because I know your thoughts, movements, and deeds. Philip asked Our Lord Jesus Christ to show him the Father which means that Philip regarded Our Lord Jesus Christ as an ordinary human being. You always shout "Wonderful Leader." I say shut up your mouth because you do not know the type of being that you are dealing with. Forget about who I am and put my teachings into practice because this will give you salvation.
Do not give me any name. I am not a Prophet, Moses, Elijah or Jesus Christ. I am a supernatural teacher, I want you to put into practice the teachings which I give you; and this will reveal to you who I am. The lessons I have brought to you are supernatural. It surpasses all the wisdom in the whole world put together. Had you humbled yourself to take in these lessons, you would have found yourself where you did not expect.
St. John 14:8-11
"Philip said unto Him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus said unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father, and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works.
Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me; or else believe me for the very works' sake."
Do you really understand this statement? Philip had been with Our Lord Jesus Christ all the time and yet he went and asked Him "Shew us the Father and it sufficeth us." Our Lord Jesus Christ said: Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father, and how sayest thou then, shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself, but the Father that dwelleth in me. He doeth the works. This means that our Lord Jesus Christ is God Himself. I have been telling you that Our Lord Jesus Christ is God Himself, who created heaven and earth. But when you pray and say "Our Father which art in heaven hallowed be thy name" is it possible that you think that God is living in the desert or in the moon, the sun, the stars or in a secret chamber? Our Lord Jesus Christ had said, "He that hath seen me hath seen the Father."
St. John 3:11-13
Verily, verily I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
When I tell you that I am delivering this gospel from the high heavens you begin to contemplate in your mind, what type of statement is this? No person has ever come down from heaven except he who is from heaven. When he speaks here on earth, you can hear his voice everywhere in the universe.
St. Matthew 17: 2-6
"And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And behold there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with Him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom, I am well pleased; hear ye Him. And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces, and were sore afraid."
Who can understand all these things? This is another aspect of the mysteries of the kingdom. Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ, was told that she would be overshadowed by the power of the Holy Ghost, and that which would be born of her will be called the Holy Son of God.
When John baptized Jesus, the Holy Spirit descended in the form of a dove and a voice in heaven declared that, "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, hear ye Him."
Is there among the members of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star and the public, anyone who has not seen me spiritually and physically in their houses and everywhere? Yet you continue to doubt. Even though you see me in your dreams you are still doubting. One person who millions and thousands of people see spiritually and physically at the same time, and hear His voice distinctly. Here is a person who can appear to millions of people at the same time. Sometimes when you dose off you see Him. There is no place where you cannot see Him. This is why people conclude that He is not an ordinary man. They say that He has been a member of several secret societies. I ask you, am I the only person in these secret societies? When you read St. Matthew 17:2-6, tell me who were the persons appearing there? Before the bright light were Moses, Elijah and Our Lord Jesus Christ. In St. Matthew Chapter 16:28 He had already told them that some among them will not taste of death. At that time the disciples did not understand Him. After six days all these things came to pass when they were on the mountain of transfiguration.
It has already been said that there is nothing which Our Lord Jesus Christ said which will not be made manifest. If He tells you to go there and you will find two persons, when you reach that place, you will find two persons. If He says that it will rain by four o'clock, the rain is bound to fall at that time. This is because all the words proceeding out of His mouth will come to fulfillment.
"And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
Whatever He says must be fulfilled. He told his disciples to go to the upper chamber and there they would find a girl with a pot of water. When the disciples went, they found the girl exactly as Our Lord Jesus Christ had said. He also told His disciples to go to the Village where they would find an ass tied to a stake. When they went they found exactly what Our Lord Jesus Christ had said. There was nothing which he said that did not come to pass.
In spite of the fact the Bible has been written in various dialects and languages, it has been produced in countless volumes after the departure of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the flesh. Since he has not re-appeared, the Bible has been thrown away. I will not say that there is any church denomination which has been able to put into practice the words in the Bible. They cannot even interpret it. The Roman Catholics cannot interpret it, how much less the Protestants. No one has been able to interpret the Bible.
Until now there has been no one who knows anything about the Bible. People simply look at it without any understanding of what it contains. Finally the best thing for them to do is to throw it away.
St. Matthew 28:18
"And Jesus came and spoke unto them saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth".
Who is the person to whom all power in heaven and earth has been bestowed? Who is this person? If this is what has been done, what power is left? Who is this person to whom all power has been given? There is no one who can understand the statement of Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is only Our Lord Jesus Christ who understands Himself.
St. John 17:4-5
"I have glorified thee on the earth, I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was."
Interpret this passage for me? Who is this man? When the world was not yet created, Our Lord Jesus Christ was in existence. If He has existed before the creation of the world, who was He? Are you deceived by the name which He has used to camouflage Himself? You want Him to be called God. Is it because He was called Jesus? No precious thing can be presented before swine.
Have you heard what has been said in St. John 17:5? "And now O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was." Can another person's wife rub your back down to the waist? Which man would have accepted to come and die for your sake? What reason would he have to come and die? What would have been his benefits?
Those of you who are present here do not behave in the same way with your child as you behave with your brother or wife. Your behavior towards each and everyone of them is different. The way that you behave with your friend and your concubine is quite different. Your girlfriend will try to dupe you because she is not certain of the future. But the moment that you come out plainly and say "I am going to marry you" she will no longer waste her time in going out to borrow and buy certain things because she is now certain of her future. The man himself will be compelled to write her letters confirming that he will marry her. You can even write and tell your parents that come what may, you are getting married. Remember one thing, that the letter can be withdrawn at anytime. Men are so cunning and crafty that they always deceive women.
"Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that He put all in subjection under Him. He left nothing that is not put under Him. But now we see not yet all things put under Him.
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor, that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man."
Brethren, have you heard that? Now that you are running to trees, rocks and every other thing for help, none of these things can help you because He has already said that all powers in heaven and earth have been given to Him. Which means that everything is under His control. You cannot find power anywhere. Who else can have all the powers in heaven and earth except the Son of man. Now you say "I cannot worship man, I want to worship the real God." I want you to go round the whole world and when you find the real God, worship Him.
You will also find that it is man that God gives power over all the creations of God. This is going to be proved in Hebrews.
"For unto which of the angels said He at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to me a Son. And again, when He bringeth in the first begotten into the world, He saith, And let all the angels of God worship him."
Look at this type of man which when He comes as the first begotten of God, God will say that all the angels in heaven and earth should bow down and worship Him. What kind of man is this? Do not forget that Raphael is an angel; Michael is also an angel. Hell and Hades, the Stars, the Sun, the Moon, Rain, Fire, Thunder and so on, are all angels. It has been said that when He will bring down the first begotten of the Father into the world, all angels must bow down and worship Him. Who then is this Man to whom all angels must subject themselves and minister to?
If this phenomenon is a tree, stone or a human being, then it is the time that you took stock of yourselves.
It was only one angel, Michael, who was able to remove Lucifer from heaven and cast him into the bottomless pit. The angels outnumber all the human beings on earth. As you are sitting down here the angels who are also here number more than one million. Consider this type of man which all the angels in heaven and on earth must bow down to worship.
St. Matthew 13:40-43
"As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and them which 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 hath ears to hear, let him hear."
Brethren, have you heard that? Just as the Government, the Armed Forces, the Police, Institutions such as Schools, Colleges, the Courts are arranged in the world, so also are they in the spiritual world. The same situation exists among the angels. They have assignments from God to go and arrest all those who break the law and indulge in abominations. Such people are brought before the courts.
Consider within yourselves what type of person this is? One who gives an order and all the angels obey. He can order an angel to go and arrest a particular person. At another time He can order that such a person should be released. What I am telling you is that all the angels all over the earth and in heaven are all under the control of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The angels are so powerful that one angel is able to destroy the whole world in under one second.
Lucifer who you have been hearing about has been arrested. Do you now see that you are free to walk freely in the darkest night without anything happening to you. All the Principalities have been brought under subjection. Go to the areas where crocodiles and other wild animals have been causing people to be drowned or to completely disappear. Such things no longer happen. If you like you can go to the Northern part of the Cross River State of Nigeria where Elephants have been a constant threat to human lives. Today such threats no longer exist, because that power of the Holy Spirit has overwhelmed everything in the whole world. The only thing that the world is saying is that, now that the members of the Brotherhood of the Cross Star are fully protected by the Holy Spirit personified, they will exercise their power over them when He dies.
The King of Assyria boasted to Hezekiah that he should not be deceived by his God that he would march to Israel and destroy all the soldiers, the inhabitants and Hezekiah himself. King Hezekiah placed this letter before the alter of the Lord. Only one angel was sent to destroy all the Philistines. If only one angel was able to destroy a whole army, what do you think of this person who when He will come into this world all the angels in heaven and earth will bow and worship Him? Had you known yourselves, you would never have referred to Our Lord Jesus Christ as a human being. ALL THE PUNISHMENTS AND AFFLICTIONS BESETTING THE WHOLE WORLD ARE AS A RESULT OF ALL THE BLASPHEMOUS WORDS THAT THE WORLD IS SPEAKING AGAINST THIS HUMAN BEING. There is no doubt that Our Lord Jesus Christ is a human being as we are, but He is God Almighty. When he came into the world, all the angles had to bow down and worship Him.
During the last election, many people contested for the post of the President but eventually only one person emerged as the President. Even if he was formerly your friend, you cannot play with him as you like because he now has the power to deal with you as he likes. This does not mean that he is the most intelligent person but so far as he has been chosen to be the Head of State, you have to give him the honour and respect due to him during his tenure of office. If this power and authority is vested in a human being who can be tossed about by sickness, or death, imagine one who is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, who has control over sickness, death and everything created both seen and unseen. Look at this supernatural man that all the angels in heaven and earth bow down and worship.
It is very unwise for you to speak evil words or joke with such a human being.
"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."
Who is this man, who is given dominion over all created things? Is He a tree or an angel. After God had given Adam power to control everything created, did God ever withdraw the power from Adam, even though he disobeyed Him? If you know of any passage in the Bible where it is written that God withdrew this power from Adam, you should prove it. God has never at anytime withdrawn the rulership from man. Rather He punished him because of his disobedience.
"And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of your life; Thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it was thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."
What do you think He is? You say that you regard Him as God. When people ask you why regard Him as God? You reply by saying, "My wife was barren and He made her to become fruitful". Or you say, "I was sick and He has made me well." The people will then ask you, "Is that the reason why you accept Him to be God?" If you go to necromancer, he will heal your sickness and perform several miracles. It is for this reason that people stick to necromancing, secret societies and other diabolical powers.
Adam came into existence by being molded from the dust of the earth and God breathed into him the breath of life. The symbolism of that breath is the fact that God dwelt inside Adam. We have been told that Adam was sent into a deep sleep. THIS ACTUALLY MEANS THAT HE DIED. When he resurrected, that is when a rib from his side was used in creating Eve. It was the same spirit that Adam had which caused Our Lord Jesus Christ to re-incarnate as a quickening Spirit.
Have you not heard Our Lord Jesus Christ when He said, "It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you." (John 16:7). Do you mean to tell me that another person was going to be sent? Was that Comforter not Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself who was going to re-appear?
You always claim that you cannot worship a man. Whether that person is your Mother or Father, a Governor, a President, a Commissioner or Permanent Secretary. Whatever his status is in life, he is a human being. How will you not worship man when at your different places of work you are placed under superior officers. Even though you claim that you cannot worship man, it is a man who is placed in a position to promote or punish you. Sometimes you complain that your promotion has been withheld. This is so because you refuse to worship man. When the time for promotion comes, yours will not be given to you, while a much more junior officer is promoted.
At the moment, is the world not filled with angels and spirits? Are you able to see these invisible beings? No matter how great a spirit or an angel is since they are your servants, you can dismiss them or ask them to go away from you. This is because, it has been ordained by God that man must rule over the angels, the spirits and all the creations of God. The passage says you should love the brethren and honour the King. This is the position in which I find myself. Apart from that I would not say that I cannot respect man. I would like you to interpret this passage for me.
1st Peter 2:17
"Honour all men. Love the Brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the King."
Who is man that you should worship him? A woman, a man, an old man, a thief, a native doctor and sick person, are all these not human beings? You do not regard man as a precious thing. Rather you always complain that "I cannot worship man, I am worshipping the real God." The fact is that man is a precious thing and must be honoured and respected. Honour all men. Love the Brotherhood. Who are these men? Are they not human beings? You have also been told to love the Brotherhood. Who are the Brotherhood? Are they not human beings? You are asked to fear the King? Who is the King? Is he not a human being? You have been told to fear God. Is God not a human being? What are you doing now?
"And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals."
Have you heard what has been read to you? Why is it that there is no other person worthy to open that book and read what is the Bible which you have been reading everyday? THE POINT IS THAT THERE IS NO ANGEL THAT CAN OPEN IT, READ IT AND PUT ITS CONTENTS INTO PRACTICE. THERE IS NO WHITE MAN OR BLACK MAN WHO IS ABLE TO PRACTISE THE WORD OF GOD. Why is it that He is the only person who is able to open this book, remove the seals and read the contents of the book? The reason is that He was the one who was killed and His blood was used in cleansing all the human beings in the world. THIS SAME JESUS HAS RETURNED AND YOU HAVE NO REGARD FOR HIM. HE IS THE ONLY ONE ABLE TO OPEN THIS BOOK.
Compare this statement with an earlier statement in which He said, "Whom shall I send and who will go for me?" Heaven and earth remained silent. It was only Our Lord Jesus Christ who offered to come. This is the same situation in REVELATION 5:1-12.
"And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne. And when He had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung an new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou was slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches and wisdom, and strength and honour, and glory, and blessing."
There was no one in this case who could open the book and read the contents. Somebody said, do not weep because the lion of Judah is able to open and read the contents of the book. He is worthy to open the book because He was the one who was slain.
Revelation 12: 5
"And she brought forth a man child, who was to to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne."
Ponder over this, and tell me who this man is. Who is this man child? Is this child Moses, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob or John the Baptist? Compare the words in REVELATION 12:5 with the message that angel Gabriel gave to Mary that a virgin will give birth to a male child and His name shall be called Jesus. If a virgin is to bring forth Jesus again, this would be repetition. You will also observe that Jesus is an old name. In the book of Revelation we are told that a woman, not a virgin this time, will bring forth a male child who will rule the world with an iron rod.
Our Lord Jesus Christ was the anointed one who was to go and preach deliverance to the captives. This MALE CHILD HAS BEEN SENT FORTH TO RULE THE WORLD WITH AN IRON ROD, AND NOW ALL OF YOU ARE THE CHRISTS OF GOD. You have been anointed to go and preach the glory of God to the entire world. The fact remains that the male child will rule the entire world with an iron rod.
THE IRON ROD SIGNIFIES THE KINGSHIP POSITION. HE IS THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS.
There are many lords; therefore, if you refer to Him as a Lord you will be chastised by an angel. He is above all the lords; therefore, He is the Lord of Lords. If you refer to Our Lord Jesus Christ as Jesus, you will be chastised by an angel. He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. It is an insult and blasphemy for people to refer to Our Lord Jesus Christ as Jesus.
The 144,000 virgins who will be redeemed from the earth are the kings. They will rule under the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
"His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself."
Look at the glory which Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke about in John 17:5. Does it mean that when He comes back again as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, he will go about from house to house and from village to village? He will have to be the pillar of the church and maintain His position as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. REVELATION 12:5 says that this male child was caught up unto God and to his throne. He does not go anywhere He remains in the throne to give His commands. IF HE GOES OUT, ANYWHERE, IN THE FLESH, HE IS NOT THE ONE. UNLESS THE FATHER REVEALS THIS REVELATION TO YOU, YOU WILL NOT UNDERSTAND THE MEANING. ALL ANGELS, HUMAN BEINGS, SPIRITS AND ALL THE CREATED THINGS, BOTH VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE ARE UNDER HIS CONTROL. IF YOU SAY THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW HIM, HE CERTAINLY KNOWS YOU. EVERYTHING IS UNDER HIS CONTROL. HE HAS COME TO RULE OVER DEATH AND HADES AND HE IS BORN OF A WOMAN.
Have the white people or the Africans elected anybody as a King? The Africans have Chiefs, Traditional Rulers and Clan Heads. Throughout the whole world there is no particular person who is to rule the whole world. THIS MALE CHILD, BORN OF A WOMAN, WITH AN IRON ROD, HAS COME TO ASSUME HIS REIGN ON THIS EARTH PLANE.
Why is it that the people of the world are so rich in the mundane things of this world; while those who worship God go about in tattered clothes? The priests say that their reward is in heaven and the churchgoer is unable to obtain any mundane thing.
People always ask why is it that when a person goes to the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, he becomes very wealthy? He is blessed with all the mundane things and he is given the Holy Spirit. People often complain that Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is not a place where God is worshipped. Others will confront you that you go to the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star for the sake of material wealth.
People believe that it is only beelzebub and secret societies that can provide material wealth. Those who come to the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star are accused of looking for money.
I am saying that the glory which you see now, is one which you have never witnessed before in its true perspective. WHEN IT IS FULLY MANIFESTED, YOU WILL REALIZE THAT THIS IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD WHICH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST PRAYED FOR WHEN HE SAID: "THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN."
DO YOU ALL KNOW THAT YOU ARE LORDS AND KINGS? THIS IS WHY WHENEVER YOU GO ANYWHERE, PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF YOU. I HAVE NOT YET BESTOWED FULL POWER ON YOU, SO THAT YOU MAY NOT MISUSE IT.
When a Bishop pays homage to the Traditional Rulers, he bows down to them. He will kneel down and say that he has come to offer him prayers. The personal guard of the Traditional Ruler will say "Reverend please go and wait for sometime because the King is resting." If a Governor or Head of State goes to visit a Traditional Ruler or the Emir, he has to bow down and worship him. The Emirs and the Traditional Rulers are permanent rulers, while your Governorship is temporary.
Let my peace and blessings abide with the entire world. AMEN.
