Golden Text: Luke 1:37

"For with God nothing shall be impossible."

Brethren, the texts read to you summarize the theme of our lesson. You should take particular note of this gospel. You have heard the first and second lessons as well as the golden text. There is not a single word of God that is without power. That is why you are advised not to allow evil communication to proceed out of your mouth.

The Word Heals

Are you aware of the fact that there is no word that comes out of your mouth that will fail to manifest? Every word that proceeds from your mouth must be fulfilled. The centurion told Our Lord Jesus Christ, "I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed." Our Lord Jesus Christ said unto him, "Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee." Who do you think healed the centurion's servant? Note that he requested Our Lord Jesus Christ to speak The Word and his servant will be healed.

Speak No Evil

We are warned not to allow evil communication to proceed out of our mouths because there is no word of God that is not without power. Every word that proceeds from your mouth is power. Who does the work in the entire world? It is the word. With what does the presiding magistrate or judge pass his judgement? Is it not the word? The scripture tells us, "for by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." (Matt 12:37).

It should now be clear to you that all things are created through the word, yet the world knows not The Word. That is why it has been stressed that you should not allow evil communication to proceed out of your mouth. The moment you pronounce that you are going to die, your death becomes imminent. If you say that you are experiencing hardship, you are sure to experience real hard times. When you proclaim that you are always unlucky and that whenever you do good to people, you are repaid with evil, what do you think about yourself? Your words must come to pass. When you utter good words, they will manifest accordingly because the words so spoken are God and no word that comes from God is without power.

Issues of Blood Healed in Two Generations with the Word

Remember that woman who suffered from the issue of blood for 12 years. Her conviction was that if only she could touch the edge of the garment of Our Lord Jesus Christ she would be healed. What then healed her? The words which she spoke saying "If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole." (Matt 9:21). It was the efficacy of the word that healed her. Also in this generation, when a woman who suffered from the issue of blood for 12 years heard about the fame and power of the Holy Spirit in this Kingdom, she declared that if she could only behold the Holy Father, she would be healed. And it came to pass that the moment she beheld the Holy Father, she was healed.

These occurrences also explain why you are warned not to allow evil communication to proceed out of your mouth. They explain why you are told to always speak words that are good to the use of edifying, that minister grace unto hearers and promote holiness, knowledge, joy, and prosperity. Nothing else besides the word does the work here.

You Are Gods

It is the word that keeps alive, kills, quickens, prospers, and does all things. Often, after speaking, your defense is that it was a mere joke. There is nothing like joking with the word. There is no word of God that is without power. That is why it is written in Psalms 82 verse 6 that ye are gods, children of the Most High. Because you are gods, whatever words come out of your mouth, must come to pass. It is on the basis of this that the scripture says that He is here in the world working but the world knows Him not. The whites have manufactured and invented all kinds of things, but have they been able to invent the word? The Bible says, "In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God." It was through the word that the sun, moon, stars, water, air, trees, animals, fishes, birds, sand, stones, and every other thing was created. With this understanding, do not joke with the word.

The Word Made Zacharias Dumb

You will remember the case of Zacharias, when he was praying in the temple, an angel of God, Gabriel, appeared to him and told him that his wife, Elizabeth, shall bear a son who will be called John. Zacharias wondered how that would take place as he and his wife were old and well stricken in years. The angel answered and said unto Zacharias, "I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God, and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. And behold thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season." (Luke 1:20).

Brethren, can you see another example explaining why you are told not to allow evil communication to proceed out of your mouth? Zacharias became dumb immediately as the angel had said. It also explains the saying that it is fulfilled unto you according to your faith.

When God created all things including Adam and Eve, He asked them to eat every fruit except the one in the middle of the garden because it was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. This illustration shows again why you are warned not to allow evil communication to proceed out of your mouth since there is no word of God that is without power.

God said in the first instance that whoever ate of that fruit would surely die since it was the tree of good and evil. Adam and Eve later ate of that forbidden fruit. When they heard God's voice, both of them ran away and hid themselves. When God asked them why they were hiding, they replied that they were naked. God then asked how they knew that they were naked or whether anyone told them. God also asked them whether they had eaten of the forbidden fruit. Adam admitted that it was the woman whom God gave to him that persuaded him to eat. When God asked Eve why she ate the forbidden fruit, she replied that the serpent was responsible. If God had not commanded that whoever ate of the fruit would die, what do you think would have happened to Adam and Eve? Here is the proof that there is no word of God without power.

No Word of God Is without Power

God then turned to the serpent and said "Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed. To Eve He said, "I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow shalt thou bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee." (Gen 3:16). It is because of that pronouncement that every woman today, no matter her size and position, is under the subjection of man. And the pains and travail which a woman suffers before she gives birth to a child result from those pronouncements from God.

God finally turned to the man and said, "Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I command 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 thy life. In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return." (Gen 3:19). The state of affairs in the world today reveals the fulfillment of those pronouncements, even though man alleges today that juju, apparition, man, witchcraft and so on are responsible for such calamities.

Since God had pronounced that whosoever ate of that fruit shall surely die, that is why there is death today. He also said that the fruits of that tree consisted of good and evil. That is why there is good and evil in every human being. That is why you can praise a man early in the morning but by 10 a.m. you stand out to condemn the person you had earlier praised. It also explains why good and evil qualities abound in every sphere of human endeavour. Man toils and tills the ground and goes up and down yet he cannot gather enough yield. There is suffering everywhere today to manifest the pronouncements made by God.

The Destruction Of Sodom And Gomorrah Resulted From Noah's Curse Upon His Son

Again, Noah had three sons and one of them saw his nakedness. When Noah was so drunk and lost his senses, he staggered along the road naked. The son apart from seeing his Father's nakedness also mocked at him. (Gen 9:22). When the other two sons heard about the incident, they walked backwards with a loin cloth in their hands and covered Noah's nakedness. When on the morrow Noah heard of his behaviour and the son's reaction, he cursed the son who mocked at him. The two cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were the direct descendants of the cursed son of Noah. You can see that the curse passed from that son unto his descendants. So is it with other evil words.

All Things Are Caused by God

Another case is that of Isaac and his two sons, Esau and Jacob. For the children being not yet born, it was said, "The elder shall serve the younger." Esau was very hard working and a good hunter, and it was clear that Isaac would bless him. It is worth noting that there is nothing God had said that would not come to pass.So that God's purpose according to election might be fulfilled, before it was time for Isaac to bless his children he became blind. This is to prove to you that God is responsible for everything that takes place.

Esau Faked

Therefore, when Isaac asked Esau to get some venison and make for him savoury meat so that he could bless him, Rebekah immediately went and told Jacob and they both connived and deceived Isaac. Isaac loved Esau more than Jacob, while Rebekah loved Jacob. Since Esau was hairy and Jacob was smooth, Rebekah faked Jacob's skin with the skin of the kids of the goats. Jacob carried out his mother's advice, and Isaac blessed him immensely, praying for his prosperity, long life, and many other good things and even asked that his brother would be subjected to him. Jacob was bestowed with everything good. Immediately Jacob left Isaac's presence, Esau arrived, prepared savoury meat and asked his father to eat and bless him as promised. Isaac replied that he had not even a single blessing left. (Gen 27:35-40).

The Elder Shall Serve the Younger

It is further proved here that everything is done through the word. Through the word one is blessed or cursed and through the word one can build or destroy. The prediction that was given when Esau and Jacob were not born, that the elder shall serve the younger, came to pass accordingly. (Gen 25:23). The circumstances surrounding Jacob's blessing were to make way for the fulfillment of God's promise. Esau not being blessed also fulfilled God's promise concerning him. Isaac only told him to take heart and continue to labour and that it shall come to pass when he shall have dominion. (Gen 27:40).

Can you realize why the centurion told our Lord Jesus Christ to speak the word and his servant would be healed? The Centurion understood the efficacy of the word. That explains why Isaac could not utter any word of blessing when Esau asked him for his own share of blessing.

Jacob Blessed His Children

Jacob had twelve sons and when he was about to die he assembled them and revealed to them what shall befall them. To Reuben, Jacob said that for defiling his bed he shall never prosper. (Gen 49:4). The poor people you have around are the descendants of Reuben.

To Simeon and Levi, Jacob said that the instruments of cruelty would be in their habitations, for in their anger they slew men and in their self-will they dug down a wall. He prayed that his soul shall have nothing to do with them. To them he also said that the sword shall never leave their habitation, and they shall continue in warfare. The descendants of Simeon and Levi always desire to kill and wage war. There is nothing you will do to satisfy or pacify them. During Jacob's return to his land with all his children including Levi, Simeon and their sisters, they had to tarry in a certain city. While there, the son of the King of that city became intimate with Jacob's daughter who was a sister to Levi and Simeon. When the affair became known to both parents,the King pleaded with Jacob and promised to marry his daughter to his son and to get all the inhabitants of the city circumcised according to Jacob's demand. But at night, Simeon and Levi went to the city and killed the people and destroyed their kingdom without their father's consent. That was why Jacob said to them that the sword will never depart from their habitation.

To Judah, Jacob said, "The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh came; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be." (Gen 49:10).

When it was Joseph's turn, Jacob showered bountiful blessings upon him than he had upon any other person. (Gen. 49:1-33). Can you still doubt the efficacy of The Word? Can you realise why the centurion asked Our Lord Jesus Christ to speak the word only and his servant shall be healed? With this realization, do not joke with the word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, whether you believe it or not. You may say something and later forget it, but sooner or later that statement will come to pass. A local adage says, it is the mouth of the monkey that kills the monkey. Our greatest undoing and problems come from the words we speak. The word does all things. Let our first lesson be read.

First Bible Lesson: Matthew 8:8

"The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed."

Oral Communication Is the Boon and Bane of Life

Brethren, have you heard what the scripture says? The Centurion understood how efficacious words are. It is through the word that all things are done. In the army and even in the war-front, except a word of command is given to shoot, no soldier can shoot. In markets transactions are done through oral communication and the tool is the word. In the institutions of learning, instructions and learning processes are done through the word. The only instrument that is used even in industries and commercial houses is the word.

That is why the scripture says, "For in many things we offend. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man." (James 3:2). Whatever happens to you is a result of the words of your mouth. The word is a two-edged sword that cuts to and fro. When it is sent out, it bounces back with effects. There is no word that proceeds out of your mouth that is without power.

It is on the basis of this that we are told, on the judgement day every person shall give account of all the vain words he had spoken. All the problems that come to you are caused by the words of your mouth. That is why the scripture says, "For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." (Matt 12:37).

By Your Words Are You Justified

It is for this reason that you are told, today when you hear his voice harden not your heart. (Heb 3:7-8). When God tells you to go, go immediately; and when He commands you not to go, do not go. Obedience is the first law in the Kingdom of God. In this Kingdom, it is the Word that does everything. For this reason, whatsoever you are asked to do, do just that. It is on the basis of this that you are told to knock and it shall be opened, ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find. (Matt 7:7).

Whenever any person appeared before Our Lord Jesus Christ, He would ask the person what he wanted Him to do for him. That was so because out of the words of your mouth, you shall be justified or condemned. (Matt 12:37). You cannot offer to help somebody who comes to you asking for money but you tell him to kneel down and accept prayers, of what value do you think your prayer will be to him. If somebody is sick and requests you to pray for him, the moment you offer prayers to him, he will recover because it will be fulfilled to him according to his faith.

You Have God's Authority When You Are Sent

When God wanted somebody who would come to the world and lay down his life for the salvation of mankind, Our Lord Jesus Christ indicated His willingness to do so. By his acceptance, he went with God's full support and permission. In your own case, if you do a thing that you are not instructed to do, through whose authority do you do it? What do you think works miracles in the world? The command, "Go, I am before and behind you," works like magic. Go, raise the dead, heal the sick, and so on, carry with them the stamp of authority. Freely ye received,(Matt 10:8) freely ye shall give; for a labourer is worthy of his wage. There is no need to request money for doing anything. The moment you enter into God's vineyard, everything is provided. It is said that one person can take a horse to the stream, but a hundred persons cannot force it to drink. Consequently, you do not have to drag or plead with a sick person to come to Brotherhood and be healed. It is the sick who seeks for a physician. If you ask and you do not receive, know that you have not received authority from the Father. But if He tells you to go and do something, His authority accompanies the word. You can now understand why you are told not to allow evil communication to proceed out of your mouth.

Evils of the Tongue

Those who say that whether one does good or bad death awaits him, die as they profess since all spoken words must come to pass. If you say that you are an unlucky man and that whenever you do good to somebody he repays you with evil, your words will come to pass. If you continue to say that you come from a very wicked and unkind family, that is how your family will be. If you nurse the idea that you are from a poor family that never prospers, it will surely be fulfilled to you according to your faith no matter how much you struggle. What can bring to existence that which had never existed and cause to extinct, that which exists? It is the word. Who can raise or debase somebody? It is the word.

Words Wrought Miracles

When Sarah was praying, the angel of God appeared to her and told her that she would conceive and deliver a child who shall be called Isaac, and it came to pass. You also remember the case of Naaman the leper. (2 Kings 5:14). He had washed his body in the same body of water for several times but was not cleansed. When Elisha met him and commanded him to fall into the water, Naaman argued that he was just from the same water. When his servant appealed to him to obey the prophet. So he did, and he became cleansed. Out of joy Naaman went home and gathered plenty of wealth and presented to Elisha. Elisha refused, telling Naaman that it was God who healed him. (2 Kings 5:27).

Good and Evil Prevail in Words

Do not forget God's pronouncement in the beginning that the forbidden fruit in the Garden was a Tree of Good and Evil. To confirm this, in your house and between you and your wife, or you and your children, these elements of good and evil prevail.

Although Elisha did not receive Naaman's gift, his servant turned back to Naaman and collected the gift, deceiving Naaman that it was Elisha who sent him to collect it. When Elisha later knew what his servant had done, he cursed him and the servant became leprous. It is now clear that whatever you witness around you is done by the word. If Elisha had not pronounced the curse on his servant, nothing would have happened to him.

Angry Words Manifest to Bring Problems

That is why Our Lord Jesus Christ said, "Whosoever is angry with his brother shall be in danger of judgement; and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council; but whosoever shall say, Thou fool shall be in danger of hell fire." (Matt 5:22). It was also in this connection that Peter asked Our Lord Jesus Christ, "Lord how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him. Till seven times?" Jesus said unto him, "I say not unto thee, until seven times,(Matt 18:22) but until seventy times seven."

Out of anger you say many things that come to pass and bring about problems and discomfort. Man on his own can do nothing but action is contained in the spoken word? You have been here for twenty years and over, yet do you not know that the power in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star resides in the spoken word. All the good words that you speak manifest themselves and all the evil communications that proceed from your mouth manifest themselves equally.

A City without a Prophet Perishes

I did tell you this story of a certain family that always believed and told people that they were created to be poor. Whenever a member of the family wanted to marry or somebody wanted to marry in their family, they made sure they explained that their family was perpetually poor. They will tell you that they have every other thing except wealth. Here you will see the fulfillment of the statement of Our Lord Jesus Christ that it is fulfilled to everyone according to his faith. Because of this belief, nobody in that family was ever wealthy. To fulfil that which is written in the Scriptures that a city without a prophet perishes, one day a certain prophet went to that city to preach. A woman who married in that family asked the prophet why the family was made poor right from creation. The prophet disagreed with the woman and told her that their poverty is as a result of their utterances. The prophet explained that since they always believed and professed that they were poor, it became fulfilled unto them according to their faith. The prophet then asked the woman not only to say from then henceforth that their family was a wealthy one and the richest in the world but to advise everybody in their family so to say. From that day the family became rich and produced wealthy persons. Nobody should joke with this gospel because it is efficacious. The second lesson will now be read.

Second Bible Lesson: Ephesians 4:29

"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers."

The Power of Words

Have you heard what the scripture tells us? The family heeded the advice and proclaimed that they were the richest family of the time. It became fulfilled to them accordingly. Therefore, whatever situation you find yourself is a result of the words of your mouth. If you say that you are poor you will be poor; if you say you are weak you will be weak. Each time the family told people that they were the richest family, people who had known them laughed at them. You can now realise why you are told that He is in the world doing His work but the world does not know Him. People seek for God in the sky, water, air and all over the place, yet He is here in the world doing His work. When you say to somebody that you do not joke with eyes and ears and feet and hands and the whole of your body because you use them in serving God, do you think it is these parts of the body that do the work here? The work is done by the power of the spoken word. That is why you are told, "today when you hear His voice harden not your heart" (Heb 4:7). It was not long after the family had continued to declare that they were rich when they became prosperous. Those who were working got promoted, the unemployed got jobs and the woman had a contract, and very soon they became overwhelmingly rich. The family is second to none up till today.

How Words Manifest

If you pronounce that you will not be sick, you will not be poor, you will not die, etc., these words will fulfil in you accordingly. If you believe and say that there is no juju, or mermaid, or apparition, or charms, and so on, and also that they have no dominion over you, it will come to pass. If you say you are rich, every person loves you, you are lucky, well, strong, and that everything is good with you, it will fulfil accordingly. If you say that you will never die but will live eternally, so shall it come to pass. But if you believe in the statement that whether one does good or bad, he will die, and you make a will for your survivors to guard against eventual death then you are already marching to death.

If you say that your family is a very good family and they love Brotherhood it will come to pass as said. But if you say that your family is so bad and wicked and does not like Brotherhood it will equally come to pass as said. When you pray that the entire world should be filled with love and that there should be no more war the same will be manifested in the world.

If you say that there is prosperity, love, good health and that the Holy Spirit flourishes on earth, the same will fulfil. If you say that the Father has changed everybody and that we are already in the Kingdom of God, it will surely come to pass. A local adage says that despite the good words in the parrot's mouth, evil words precede.

The Holy Spirit Is the Word

It goes to confirm the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ when He said that whosoever speaks evil against the son of man will be forgiven, but whosoever speaks evil against the Holy Spirit shall neither be forgiven in this generation nor in the generation to come. (Matt 12:32/Mark 3:29). If you slap or stone or kick somebody you will be forgiven. But if you utter any evil word against somebody you will not be forgiven, because those words shall not fail to be fulfilled. There is no forgiveness for any evil communication that proceeds from your mouth.

When Our Lord Jesus Christ said He laid down His life and would equally take it back,(John 10:18), the people did not understand that He was only explaining the efficacy of the word. He was not killed by the Jews after all. He gave His life willingly for our salvation and had the power to regain it. He told His disciples that He would go to Jerusalem and there suffer many things, and be killed, and be raised again on the third day. When those words were fulfilled, was anybody responsible for the events? Who did those things? Would you say that any person was responsible for His predicaments?

The Effects of Words

Did He not say that there was no word of God without power? If He did not say that God would cause Him to resurrect on the third day, He would not have resurrected. If He had not said He would be beaten, tortured and finally killed nothing would have happened to Him. (Matt 16:21-23/Mark 8:31/Luke 9:22) Therefore, He was responsible for whatever befell Him. His resurrection was also His handiwork.

Whatsoever you experience is a direct result of the words that proceed out of your mouth. Nothing can happen to you unless you have said it. When God had created everything He asked Adam to name them. Everything became known and called by whatever name Adam gave to it. If you read in Genesis chapter one, you will find out that after God had created everything, he observed His work and declared that they were all good. Where then comes evil now?

The Key that Unlocks Every Door

The gospel I am giving to you is very precious and highly priced. If you lack money; or you want to travel but find no car, whatever is the problem you may have, just speak positively and you will have it. Our Lord Jesus Christ said, "Whatever belongs to my Father belongs to me and whatever belongs to me belongs to my Father." (John 16:15). He also said, "I and my Father are one." (John 10:30).

Try this gospel and you will discover its efficacy. God is no other thing than the word and this word resides in you. If anybody tells you that he is responsible for anything, tell him that it is the word and not him. If anybody comes to you with sickness, pronounce that his sickness is gone, and right there the sickness will be healed. The same solution applies to all kinds of problem that any person may have. Just speak the word and all problems stand solved.

Wherever the Father Is, There You Are Also

If the world condemns a person as a very bad man, but you counter that the person is good, the person will change for good. Now that the key to goodness and righteousness has been given to you, will you continue to pronounce vain words? He had said, "Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." (John 14:1-3). When you argue that no one can be like Our Lord Jesus Christ, have you seen any person like Him? By mere saying that you are not Jesus Christ means that you have denied Him and cannot be like Him. Had He not said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." (John 14:12). In spite of this, do you not continue to say that nobody can be like the Lord?

When I tell you that all of you are like unto the Father, you refuse that no person can be like the Leader. I am telling you that all of you are like the Leader, and wherever I am there will you be also. Whether you believe it or not, we are one. The Father has conquered and you have also conquered. As it was through the sins of one man that evil and punishment came unto mankind, so also has the righteousness of one man brought salvation unto all mankind. (Romans 5:17).

Faith Is the Evidence of Things Not Seen (Heb 11:1)

What is faith? It is the word. What is the word? It is the evidence of things not seen which you believe. When you show such belief, it means that you have faith. Lack of faith makes many of you come to see the Father, to refuse to go, when He tells you to go that all is well with you. You will sit back and make some other complaints because you do not believe in the power of the spoken word. If you go on the road and are thirsty, but there is no water for you to drink, just kneel down and thank God for making water available and immediately you will find a body of water to draw from.

It is through the word that all things are made. Man himself was made from the word. Even if a million people are against you, the moment you pronounce that they have become your friends, it shall be fulfilled thus and they will all prostrate before you. Even if armed robbers send you a letter to warn you of their visit, just kneel down and pray and say that they have been barred and they will not come to you anymore. Whatever is your heart's desire, do not request from any person nor cry, just pronounce the word and it shall be done unto you.

Power Resides in Man

The word is everything including life, strength, prosperity, power, and so forth. Before now, you had been thinking that this power belonged to the Father alone. The power resides with every person to use. Have you ever heard the Father saying evil words against anybody? Only good words proceed out of His mouth.

Remember the fig tree?(Matt 21:19). Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke only the word and it withered away because it bore no fruits. Alternatively, if He blessed the tree, would it not have borne fruits? His words can make and unmake. In like manner, my blessings have no beginning and no end. It is not like that of Isaac, which was limited. That is why I stay with you and bless you from January to December of every year. That is why I say there are no armed robbers, no murderers and no evil person. Every person is good and we are all the children of God. If you say that anything is evil it will be evil to you. But I say that something is good and it is good to me. It fulfills to every person according to his faith.

Golden Text: Luke 1:37

"For with God nothing shall be impossible."

To the Pure All Things Are Pure (Titus 1:15)

Brethren, you can see that the position you find yourself is a direct result of your utterances. You profess to know God, but do you know that God is the doer of everything you see on earth? It is the evil words that constitute what you call Satan and Satan constitutes what is called evil. But God is perfect. This explains why, from January to December of each year, you do not hear evil communications from my mouth.

If you had not known that God is the word, it means that you have not yet known God. If you do not respect the word, it means you do not respect God. Also, if you do not honour the spoken word it means you do not honour God. Also, if you do not believe in the word, you do not believe in God.The only thing man cannot see is the word. Have you seen the word ever since you came here? You have only heard it.

This is the kingdom of God and you have to believe it. All the inhabitants of the world are Brotherhood. Heaven and earth belong to the Father and whatever is owned by the Father belongs to His children. There is neither sickness, nor death nor pestilence. Leave in peace with one another and impute no sins to others. Unto the pure all things are pure. (Titus 1:15). If you say something is bad then it will be bad to you.

Goodness Is a Concept of the Mind

You could say that somebody is so bad and is an embodiment of Satan, yet the same person is seen by others as being very good and even called God's embodiment.Who then is right? You may pray that God should kill a certain person and another person is praying that God should bless the same person. Who has made a mistake? It is said that all things work together for good to them that love God. (Rom 8:28).

If everybody praises something, know that such a thing is not good. Also, if everybody condemns something or somebody, know that the thing or person is bad. But if some people praise you while others condemn you then the equation is balanced. That is why Christ said I am Alpha and Omega.

On the one hand, members of Brotherhood say that the Father is God; and Brotherhood is the Kingdom of God. But the world, on the other hand, says that Brotherhood is a demonic society and its Leader is a vampire, Satan and other evil names. For this reason, those who seek after goodness and righteousness come into Brotherhood, and those who see it as devilish and who are seeking for devilish power also come in. But the latter group, when they come in only discovers that it is the Kingdom of God and change their minds and receive the truth. That is why all sorts of persons are attracted here to accept and enjoy God's love.

All Things Work According to God's Plan

If it were not Judas Iscariot how would the whole world have been saved? If He did not shed His blood, the whole world would have continued in darkness and bondage till today. That is to say, there is nothing like evil. All things work according to God's plan.

Do not allow evil communication to proceed out of your mouth. Right from today always pronounce any situation you find yourself as being good and you will see the will of God manifest in you.

That is the gateway to wisdom. It explains why people complain that the Leader calls every person good. The Leader calls every person good because if a man is evil, when the Holy Father calls him good, he will automatically change and become good. If you call anyone bad, no matter how good he is, he will become bad. You can now see that I have come to change you. I have actually changed you, but not with force or cane or any weapon. It is through The WORD.

Brethren, a stroke of the cane is sufficient unto the wise, I do not intend to take you any further. He who has ears let him hear. May God bless His Holy Words. Amen.
