1st Lesson: 1 Timothy 5:20
"Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear."
2nd Lesson: John 7:7
"The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify it, that the works thereof are evil. "
Golden Text: Galatians 2:14
"But when I saw that they worked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, if thou, being aJew, livest qfter the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as the Jews?"
Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is graded in stages. That is my happiness. You have heard it read out to you that, "Them that sin rebuke before all." That is the method I am going to from now henceforth. If you commit any act of sin, I will rebuke you openly before all. All the sins you commit; telling of lies and fornication will cause me to openly drive you away from this place.
Open Rebuke For Sin
You have been taught everything about Brotherhood. The indwelling love here is made manifest to you. We do not indulge in diabology, we do not fornicate, take to any form of medication, hate other people, disgrace any person or live abominable life. If you do not practise the injunctions, I have to rebuke you. As that brother mentioned during his testimony in the morning how some Christ’s Students manhandled him, if I am made to know such Christ’s Students, I will certainly drive them away not only from studentship but from Brotherhood. I will no longer want to set my eyes on them around here in 34 Ambo Street.
As at now, whether you are a Pastor or a Prophet or whatever you are, if you commit any act of sin, I will rebuke you. To rebuke you will mean dismissing you from here. Some of you are here for fifteen years, some for twenty years and you have been consistently instructed day in, day out not to steal, or fornicate. My work is to rebuke all the world. That is why people dislike Brotherhood. This is the New Kingdom of God. Here, it is not expected that anyone should quarrel, or steal, or fornicate, or take any form of medication, or drink any form of liquor. I have rebuked you and if you insist in doing them, I will expel you from this Kingdom.
Those Who Persist in Sins Will Be Expelled
What I am saying is not an indoor affair. I will rebuke you openly here so that others also may fear. I 'have taken another step. Among the fellowships, I will ask people to relinquish their posts because of not adhering to instructions and not doing what they are expected to do. It is expected that every person should follow this teaching because it is the Kingdom of God, It is not a thing that one should say that a person is ever learning but never reaching the knowledge of the truth. I will expel all liars, all fornicators, all those who indulge in diabology. When you are expelled, I do not even want to see you set your feet on the premises of 34 Ambo Street.
Brotherhood Is An Embodiment Of God’s Virtues
You have been told times without number, from January to December every year and you are being preached to. 'I keep telling you that you should not drum, or light candles that these are media used by elementary spirits. We are not dealing with elementary spirits. We are concerned with love, truth, mercy, humility, meekness, temperance, and joy. I have given you a long rope. Twenty years, not twenty days; ten years and not ten days; five years, not five days, one year, not one day. What you imbibe during this period of time is enough to cause a change of heart in you. Realize that wherever you are, and whatever you do, lie bare before me.
Before The World Was Created Brotherhood Was Already In Existence
Here, as you have heard, Brotherhood had existed when the world was void and without form. When it was said, "Let us make man in our own image" is an indication that Brotherhood had existed before the foundations of the world were laid. Brotherhood is not man-made, it is the Kingdom of God. It is a conglomeration that has never came into being on this plane of manifest since the inception of the world. It is the Kingdom of God which we have always prayed to thus, "Let thy Kingdom come". Thousand and one persons are coming to testify in the same manner that the brother has done this morning. Different caliber of people will come here and surprise you with the kind of testimony they will give.
Evil Doers Will Be Expelled
If many of you here do not gird your loins, you will be driven out by angels. Thieves, fornicators, heady and insubordinate persons will be driven away by angels. Immediately I give the go-ahead order, you all will be driven out. I will not tell you directly to go away, but will rather instruct them to direct you. Thieves, fornicators and deceitful persons will all be driven out.
Since you have now been told this, if you find any person along the way, whose behaviour does not conform with this way of truth, point out to him where his mistake is. One thing is that, no Brotherhood member who is a thief or a fornicator, tells his brother what he does. If you have cause to chat with him, he will tell you that all is well. Let all be well yet with you! there is a local adage which says, a bird sings melodiously when it is not yet entrapped; when it is trapped you will no longer hear its voice". I have told you times without number that I do not want a fornicator, a thief, a person who indulges in the preparation of concoction, a liar, a heady person or any kind of sinner. I do not want to hear any such person in this Kingdom.
Brotherhood is Noah’s Ark
If you like, you can forsake sins because I keep telling you to do so day after day. If you do not like, continue with them and get ready to face the music. You will be driven completely out of this kingdom. Where will you be because this is Noah’s Ark. People are coming from North and South, East and West to this kingdom. This is not a place for one to be pompous or to exercise any authority. Immediately you are driven out of this place, that will mark the end of you. No Elder has a say here. A Prophet has no say. No Christ’s Servant has a say. Nobody has a say. No angel has a say. Are you not fearful of such a thing? This work is done neither by man nor angel. It is neither done by a Prophet nor a Pastor nor any person for that matter. Everything is done by Jehovah God and His Christ. You will find out that it is the angels who are sending out the call. This is the time that sinners will be separated from righteous persons.
Brethren, the admonition that are given to you, should guide you. If you come to Brotherhood and are beset with problems, you are the cause. They come to you as a result of your stubbornness. If you find yourself in such a state, know that you are not a true Brotherhood. A Brotherhood member does not get sick. You will not face any problems, you will not have any accident. No misfortune can befall you.
Secret Societies Are Powerless
I allowed those strangers who were members of secret societies to testify so that you will hear for yourself. You have heard what one of them witnessed on getting to Biakpan. His reference to angels points out to you that there are billions and billions of angels who are working here in Brotherhood. All the legions of angels are working here. This explains why, when you write to any organization in America, seeking for power, you will be referred to Calabar because all the angels are here. Send a letter to India seeking for power, you will be referred to Calabar. Send to it to London, you will be referred to Calabar. What useful purpose does it serve to indulge in charms and concoction? The brotherhood mentioned the millions of angels under their command and how only one angel here whipped all their angels. Does this not make it clear to you that all charms and concoctions are powerless and to indulge in them amounts to a waste of time?
Read The Publications And Practice The Injunctions
By right I should not stand out here again to speak. What am I to say when all my work has been accomplished. You had complained of not being taught by the church denominations and I had to start from the scratch. That is why you have, First Step To God, Second Step To God, What is Brotherhood, and all other publications so that no person will have any defense to put up. Go to the Brotherhood Bookshop, buy, read and practise the injunctions. What scares many people away from Brotherhood is lack of practising The First Step To God. When you overlook it, you have yourself been overlooked, and will accordingly be thrown out.
I am exceedingly happy because those who have never been here are now coming to tell you what obtains but you who had been here for years now, still continue to steal and fornicate, operate and operate with jaundiced impression that Olumba does not see you. You are fighting and struggling with the impression that Olumba does not see you. But those who are outside the fold know that Olumba has seen every person.
Rebuke Any Sin
Brethren, if you find a Brotherhood member who drinks, show him his mistake because Brotherhood does not drink, Any Brotherhood member who fornicates, tell him Brotherhood does not fornicate. If you find any Brotherhood member who goes to the hospital, tell the person that Brotherhood does not go to the hospital. If one says he is a Christian, a Moslem or a Hindu, show him his mistakes. Point out to him that God does not want a person to behave in such ways. The names are irrelevant. What God wants is for us to lead a good life. This is the time for the revelation of the glory of God.
What is the rationale behind your telling a person to forsake fornication, preparation of concoction and exasperation when you still indulge in these acts? Why do you preach to a person to forsake sin when you still sin? I want you to understand that our Lord Jesus Christ was hated for showing the world its mistakes. He was the first person to show man his mistakes. The world does not like anybody to show them their mistakes. He was not hated for raising the dead or for any other thing than that He showed them their mistakes and rebuked them that man ought not to live in such ways.
Brotherhood has not yet started in its full perspective. Love one another is a primary qualifier to the secondary aspects. There are such harder lessons as warring against principalities and powers. You have heard about the offering of sacrifices in different communities. No mater one’s station in life, you will get into trouble with your community if you refuse to sacrifice with them. If you do not acknowledge the gods of the land with them by participating in the sacrifice, they will consider you a rebel. Even if you give them money, or food, they will still insist that you pour libation to the ghosts with them.
That is why we are looking for a city of our own. We have nothing to do with libation or tradition. Our only tradition is to practise the word of God. When Brotherhood shall be clear to you, you will forsake all the evils you have been committing because they constitute hindrances to you. We do not drink and yet you are selling drinks. Realise that it is said, woe to him who offers wine to another, and yet you are selling and serving wine to people. Tell me the wisdom in your action. Why do you give to other people the food you do not eat? Why do you preach to others that they should not drink while you do drink. We do not drink and yet you plant and tap palm wine. What use do they serve?
Angels Are Numberless
Brethren, these are the obstacles in your ways. Angels are here numbering in thousands. The population of this plane is relatively small. Enoch first came to this realization when he was translated. Angels are numerous. When the king of Philistines warred against Israel, Elisha’s servant was afraid on seeing the number of attacking soldiers. "And, Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha." When he saw this, he bowed down and worshipped God.
Do Not Resist The Will Of God
If you read through Isaiah chapter thirty-seven, you will see these things. When the King of Assyria sent a letter to King Hezekiah that he would wage war against him, and also over-run him; he had to stress that Hezekiah would be overcome just as others in his neighbourhood had been overcome by him. Hezekiah placed the letter before God and prayers "Incline thine ear, O Lord, and hear, open thine eyes O Lord and see and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God." Then God sent Prophet Isaiah to tell Hezekiah concerning the Assyrian King saying "He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it. By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city saith the Lord. For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake." Do you know what happened next; God sent forth only one angel; and the angel "smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and four-scores and five thousand: and when they rose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses." The King of Assyria fled on hearing this and dwelt at Nineveh. And it came to pass, as he was worshipping his god, two of his sons smote him with the sword and that was the end of him; he did not get back into the city.
God Is The Same Through All Ages
The same God of old is the on in your midst. But in your own case, the Father has come in person. The Father has come, the Son has come, the Holy Spirit has come. Why do you continue to doubt? Why do you continue to indulge in diabology, in fornication? Why are you disobedient? Your actions show that you do not know where you are. If you know not, a time comes when the angels will select what are His and leave aside what does not belong to Him. In the long run, there will be regrets. I have done all things to dissuade you from your sinfulness.
Right from the creation of the world, God has nothing to do with sin. He does not admit any sinfulness. This is the new heaven and the new earth. It is here that righteousness dwells. Let all of us live a life that befits the kingdom of God. The call was first extended to sinners, law breakers and base things but thee who were actually waiting for this kingdom are on their way. When they come, you will have no chance' again. Brethren, let our first lesson be read.
1st Lesson: 1 Timothy 5:20
"Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear."
How many of you here practise that portion of the Bible read to you? Some people are fornicating, some are stealing. Who has ever rebuked another? Some are quarrelling and some are fighting. Who is there to advise the other person not to do so?
Rebuke, But Do Not Hate
I have taught you everything about this Kingdom. The knowledge you have acquired should equip you with the ability to rebuke a person whose behaviour does not reflect the teachings of this Kingdom. You have the full right to rebuke any person. This is not to suggest that you should abuse him, or beat him or keep mute with him. You are instead told to rebuke him, and show him where he had gone wrong.
If you go through First Step To God alone, you will know what we are saying. Like you have been told of how that Pastor goes about with a ring, it is quite true that many are still putting on rings. But these rings have no powers. These things bring ill-luck, death, and suffering to them. You will hear them complain, that they have been to Brotherhood but they are still beset with problems. The fact is that they are still drinking, consulting oracles, preparing concoction, taking court action against people and because of these they still suffer. I have no concern in what they do because those who assimilate this Gospel, angels and men alike abiding by the provisions of the First Step, are doing the work.
Brotherhood Spreads Like Wild Fire
There is money, wealth, and employment opportunities here but we are looking for truthful persons. The Kingdom of God is all joy, love, peace, patience, mercy, truth, temperance and meekness. There is no sinfulness in it, neither can it enter in. Brotherhood is not affiliated to any organization or person. It stands all alone. It is the Kingdom of God. It is quite another Kingdom altogether. It exists forever. You will notice that as the years pass by, Brotherhood expands. A time will come when the whole world will be enveloped. As the years pass by, so does it expand with leaps and bounds.
It is for us to teach this love to those in the world. Teach this patience to our brethren here who continue to quarrel, show them their mistakes. Those who continue to beat up their children, and tell lies and commit any sin; show them their mistakes, for their own good. If you continue to sin, you will he driven out of the Kingdom not by any human being but by angels.
Rebuke Whoever Sins
Brethren, from now on, whether you are a Deaconess, or a Prophet, or a Pastor or whatever you are, rebuke yourself if you do not practise the Gospel of God. Rebuke your child, and your husband if they do not practise this word of God. Without causing any quarrel, point out their mistakes. If they do not accept, leave them to their ways. We do not come here to act according to the directives of our spirits. We do not come here to please ourselves. It is for you to practise the Gospel given to you here because angels are taking down all that is delivered. What matters is for you to comply implicitly with what you are taught without adding nor subtracting anything.
Always Walk Circumspectly
The world is bamboozled at the situation of things in the world. The children of God have no cause for alarm because it is said the wages of sin, i.e. lies, stealing, charms, animosity, fornication, murder, and so forth, is death, wretchedness, war, and this suffering is meant for all the inhabitants of the world. Do not carry the property of any person without the owner’s consent, be it your husband, your wife, your child, your brother or sister, or your friend. Do not take anything except it is given to you by the owner, if you do, then, it means you are a thief. Do not murmur against any person. Do not impute sins on a person like you. The only thing you have to do is that whoever does not follow the teachings you have received here, show him his mistakes so that everybody will see the light and those who had derailed with him may turn back to the path of rectitude.
The Wages of Sin Is Death
There is no day I have spoken my own words. All the things I tell you are what you will find stated in the Bible which God tells us to practise. I have never told you that I say one thing or the other. What brings death is fornication. What brings death is idolatry. What brings death is stealing and telling of lies. It is said, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them." When you consult oracles and sorcerers, swear by your bodies, and practise their instructions, you only invoke the wrath of God upon yourselves. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not fornicate. A man should only take to one woman. But when you indulge in fornication or adultery, you have put yourself into a very serious trouble which attracts death, sickness, wretchedness and tribulations to you.
The Origin Of Sin
What you have now is the revision of the lessons taught you right from the time of Adam. This revision becomes necessary since at this end of time and the final examination is imminent. It is necessary that you be reminded of all the things taught by our Lord Jesus Christ and the prophets' right from the beginning. It is time to put them into practice. Whoever does not practise these gospels will be expelled from this kingdom. He will not be worthy of it and consequently will not enter in.
You should not seek for the advice of men. Adam and Eve were commanded to eat of all the fruits of the trees in the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they should not eat lest they would die. Since they ate of the fruit of the tree, sin, death and tribulation befell them. I have not come to pray for people. I have not come to preach to people. I have come to sit down to watch the glory of God. The angels are doing everything. The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit is doing everything to judge the world, to arrange everything and to bestow joy. I have only come with joy. But now you have caused me to repeat everything, preach every gospel and show you all things. I have done these over and over again, but you remain adamant. The only thing left now is for me to lock the door. In future if you come here, you will no longer see me. There will be no more holy oil or water. No prayers nor sermons will be given any longer.
You cannot compare my work to the work of any other person in the whole world, because this is a different world altogether; it is a new world. None of you knows what is in this Kingdom. It is the Holy Spirit alone who is at work. You should prostrate on the ground, doing as you are instructed; expressing love, not getting exasperated, not becoming fastidious. That is all you ought to do.
Launching Will be Proscribed
Right now, I am going to discontinue certain things. The rate of launchings that are done will be reduced. You do not have any kobo at home but you will want to do launching. Does that not amount to borrowing from Peter to pay Paul? In this kingdom, whoever on whom God has bestowed any gifts, should use the gifts judiciously in God’s service. If he refuses to give to you, remain calm and do not disturb yourself any longer. I have not yet exhibited my true colour. I know the meaning of launching. It is self-help venture, seeking for means of feeding yourself. It is not a Brotherhood affair. The Scriptures say, "And God hath set some in the 'church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healing, helps, governments, diversities of tongue." The Father had pre-arranged everything according to needs. We have no need to pray God to do this or that. In respect of the New Jerusalem building, one person has volunteered to build it without asking a kobo from others. But others say he should not. They have not done so themselves; and this year is running past. Whom will you blame? I had intentionally allowed you your way. I intend to use my possessions at will but Satan says I should not. At the same time, the thing is not done by him. Does it mean the project will be left halfway? Within a short time I am going to put an end to that insult. I will soon tell that child of mine to go and construct what he intended. You lack the ability and the expression of love. Go and build it you would not, let the owner do it his own way, you would not. When people visit Biakpan, they will be scattered all over. What is the sense of doing that?
Diversities of Gifts
I have said right from the beginning that this place is not like secular set-ups. One person can volunteer here and purchase an aeroplane for travelling. Somebody can buy a shop or a train or a car or a house for you. That is what exists in this Kingdom. Nobody struggles for anything, launching here and there, launching into your pockets and into other placebo. That is not the case. The Father owns everything. He does everything and gives people the ability. There is division of labour according to gifts of the Spirit. Some are cooks, and others engage in other jobs. We have no problem and there is no occasion of stumbling. This is the Kingdom of God.
Many people think that this place is a refugee camp; that whoever lacks what to eat should come here for food. That assertion is misconstrued. Here in this Kingdom, all hands must be on deck. It is said, do not feed the lazy, and eat no person’s food for nothing. You are not here to lazy about. You must have what to do. It is our tradition as recorded in the Holy Book. That is the teaching here. The lazy one is not fed and we do not eat any person’s food in vain.
Do Not Feed The Idle
This explains why we are looking for farm land, When we acquire the plots, healing homes where people go and hide claiming to be doing the Father’s work will be depopulated. Tools will be provided for you to work in the farm and at the end of the month you will be given your wages. It is from there that you will feed. All the useless things done in healing homes: stealing and doing other abominable things will stop. No lazy person will be fed. 2nd Thessalonians 3:6 – 15 makes it clear: Whoever is lazy, be he your child or your husband or your mother should not be fed if he refuses to work. Have no communion with him and at the same time do not quarrel with him. It is a grievous sin which you take lightly.
Brethren, the Holy Bible is the Ark of God’s Covenant. I quote my authority from it. Before you are driven away, I quote it from there. Whoever does not hear and would not practise the Word of God, you should have nothing to do with him. Send him out. Brethren, let our second lesson be read.
2nd Lesson: John 7:7
"The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify it, that the works thereof are evil. "
There Is No Marriage In The Kingdom
Do you see why the world hates the children of God? Do you know why the inhabitants of the world do not want to see Brotherhood in existence? If Brotherhood was that of the world, the world would have loved it. It had been said, "The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage but they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage." Therefore, there is no marriage here. When you intend to marry I refer you to this portion of the Scriptures and bid you farewell.
To Be Saved, Your Righteousness Should Exceed That Of Others
Brotherhood does not bury the dead. Because our Lord Jesus Christ had said, "Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the Kingdom of God." Therefore, when you are going to bury the dead, read this portion of the Holy Bible and proceed on your journey. It is advised that you should not resist an evil-doer. Anytime you decide to fight an evil person, I bid you farewell while I remain this way until you return. Because our Lord Jesus Christ said, "That except your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees, shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven."
The worldly people are waiting anxiously for that Kingdom of God But you are already in that Kingdom. You are taught to retrace your steps from your evil and to do that which is pleasing unto God. When you are told that judgement will start from the house of God, this is that judgement. You are told that any person who commits fornication, who steals, who is wallowing in anger, who beats up his children, who indulges in the preparation of concoction and juju, and other abominable acts, has no place in this kingdom.
The line of demarcation between us here and the world is that the church denominations claim that if one comes into their organizations such a person is saved notwithstanding that he is a notorious thief. The Father does not hold such a contention here. Whatever you commit crime-wise does not matter so long as you are their member. Bu whatever other people do in other church denominations-are counted as sinful. I make this statement to all the inhabitants of the world, that it i. my place to rebuke the entire world that their behavioural patterns have derailed them from the path of rectitude.
Sin No More Lest Worst Things Come To You
You will argue that our Lord Jesus Christ did not rebuke the evil ways of a selected number of people but everybody. This, He has said, "The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that their works thereof are evil." Remember that "woman taken in adultery" who was brought before our Lord Jesus Christ by the Scribes and Pharisees to tempt him. What did He say unto them? He said, "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again He stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went away one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst."
First Remove The Stick From Your Eyes
Then He said to that woman, "Woman, where are those thine accusers, hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: Go and sin no more." The problem facing all of you here is that none of you is ready to accept any reproof from somebody for wrong doing. If somebody tells a person to forsake doing an evil act, should a gun be handy, he will shoot that person. None of you here wants to be advised against committing evil. If any person walks up to rebuke you of committing an evil act, you will regard that person as your enemy for life. But you continue to find faults on other persons while' you go about with a clean slate. In your own estimation only, other people continue to sin. And that is the line all of you are toeing. But our Lord Jesus Christ has reproved us of such behavioural patterns. For He said, "Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye."
Make Hay While The Sun Shines
All the inhabitants of the world do not like a good thing. And they hate any person making bold to tell the truth. But I have come with the truth and I will stop at nothing to announce that which is the truth. Notwithstanding your station in life, I will say the truth to everybody. This I will do without regard to whether you will die or live. I have not yet started playing this role. For I will call people face-to-face and rebuke them of their evil ways publicly. When judgement will commence, this is the trend that will be followed.
Brethren, it is expedient to fish out for a black goat when the night is not yet come. Your call into this Kingdom is not that you should fool around with it or drag it into mud. Because if you stay here to fight, and struggle over bread, struggle over positions, tell lies, commit all forms of atrocity, it means that you are dogs and you are swine.
You will come in contact with a great many brothers who claim that they had come to Brotherhood. But they find it difficult to say the reason why they backslide. Because they came into Brotherhood to steal, commit fornication, engage in the preparation of concoction, quarrel, fight, and to perpetuate all forms of evil acts. The angels of God will wait patiently and if they will not lend ears to the Words of God, they will be driven away.
Those Who Sin, Rebuke Before All
If Brotherhood were man-made, I would have sent a great many people home. But I have no authority to drive away people. I have no power to call people into this Kingdom. I remain as a graven image. I look unto the Father. But when it becomes expedient to rebuke people publicly of their wrong doings, I will not be the one to discharge this function. It is the Father Himself who will accomplish that role. And you will live to witness what the trend of openings will be.
You are living witnesses to the fact that there is no day I have ever failed to rebuke you of your wrong doings. That such behavioural patterns cannot earn your entry into this Kingdom of God. Because our Lord Jesus Christ had told them: "That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of heaven."
We Now See The Kingdom of God
This is why this Kingdom of God did not manifest itself before now, but has suffered at this end of time. Because Abraham had hoped for it, but to no avail. Isaac, Jacob, Moses and other men of God had their eyes on this Kingdom. All their sufferings were jolted towards the fulfillment of this Kingdom of God. But they only heard about it, they hoped on it, but they never saw it. With the advent of our Lord Jesus Christ, He preached about this Kingdom unto the people's But it did not manifest to them. All the disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ from Simon Peter were all, killed for the sake of this Kingdom. And yet they did not see it. Thus, I count myself as a man of great luck if you have not counted yourself as such to live to see this Kingdom of God. Because of this, I must accomplish all that is incumbent on me to do in a bid to enter into this Kingdom. But if you fail to play up your role, the fate is yours. Our Lord Jesus had said, "Again, the Kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field: the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof joy thereof and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field."
Admonish Your Father Who Sins
So also is this Kingdom of God. This Kingdom is not money, it is not garment, it is not children, it is not husband, it is not house. Rather, it is everlasting life, it is eternal glory, it is peace, it is joy, and righteousness, Do not disturb your father if he is a member .of any of the church denominations. But rebuke and reprove him for snuffing, that the children of God do not snuff. Against this base, he should neither snuff, nor indulge in the preparation of concoction, nor comment fornication, nor institute court action against any person. Show to him all the tendencies God instructs us not to indulge notwithstanding whether he is a member of any church denomination or whether he does not go to a church denomination but stays at home to worship God. That is precisely what is expected of you. And not to request him to come over here. Should you do this, you are only breeding confusion. Put him into the knowledge of that which is nominated in the only Scripture without, paying any attention to the church denomination he attends.
You are witnesses that Paul, formerly called Saul, never saw our Lord Jesus Christ in the flesh. And he did not also meet Peter. Rather it was Peter who knew our Lord Jesus Christ carnally and he was the one He gave the king of this ministry. It was to Peter that He said, "Feed my sheep." But in the final analysis, it was the same Peter who did eat of things sacrificed unto idols. But when Paul, who was not opportuned to see our Lord Jesus Christ in the flesh, received this news, he went and reproved him publicly. Therefore, if a person is not circumcised but he does that which is pleasing in the sight of God, he has every right to advise the circumcised person who derails from the path of rectitude.
All Religions Have Entrenched In Their Doctrine The Concept Of Love
It can be that your father is yet to be baptised into Brotherhood, your mother is not of this fold, your brothers and sisters are yet to be called into this Kingdom but they do not drink, they do not commit fornication, they do not tell lies, they practise the Word of God. But you who have come into this fold are indulging in the preparation of concoction, you are still exasperated and committing other acts of sinfulness. Is your father not worthy to reprove and rebuke you to forsake doing such evil acts for they are not pleasing unto God? Now, Bishops, Reverends and other clergymen are acting as Peter. You have the full right to reprove them when they are snuffing, drinking, wearing talisman and committing other demonic behaviors publicly. You who claim to be a Bishop, why do you drink? Why do you consult necromancers? Why do you commit fornication? Why do you snuff? You have full grounds to reprimand any person who commits such sinful acts. That is precisely your duty. The Moslem world preaches about love. Buddhism preaches about nothing but love. Christianity also preaches about love. Everybody preaches about love. You are at liberty to seek to know from a necromancer why he, who professes to prepare concoction which gives life to people and to protect their properties, to end their evil tendencies, should indulge in committing evil acts.
Reprove Men Of Their Evil Ways
Government says people should not even bribe or receive same. But a Government official will demand bribe from you when he rounds you up in any offence. Why do you fail to ask why he should demand for kick-back when he is positioned there to preach and check the giving and receiving of bribes?
Brethren, can you realize where the Word of God hinges? Do not request anybody to decamp from one church denomination and pitch his tent in your own denomination. Rebuke and reprove anybody for committing any act of sin irrespective of the church denominations he belongs. That is why you lie before me in order to accomplish yourself aggrandizement. Even if they hate you, or not believe in you, you should remain indifferent. Any person who accepts your reprimand has saved his soul. If he refuses to accept the truth, he is damned.
Brotherhood cannot agree with any evil tendency. Because as stated in the First Step To God, we do not beat drums, we do not burn incense, we do not light candles, we do not perform those carnal dances. For they are demonic things. All the celebrations they hold here and there, the propensity to consume all kinds of liquor are not found in the teachings of Brotherhood.
What surprises me is that your father is an elder in one of the church denominations but he still snuffs. You maintain sealed lips and refuse to rebuke him of such an evil act. He is drinking, and indulging in such tendencies which do not give glory to God. Why do you fail to reprove him for committing such sinful acts? That is the work of God. Rebuke and reprove any person who derails from the path of rectitude. Even if it is the entire members of a church denomination, open and show to them the portions of the Holy Scriptures, which reprove such behavioural patterns. That was the work done by our Lord Jesus Christ. And it is incumbent on us to continue in that same vein.
A Hireling Is Not A Good Shepherd
Right now, Bishops, Reverends, Pastors, Evangelists, Elders, Catechists and others who profess to do God’s work are receiving monthly salaries. Where do you find this practice in the Holy Bible? Have you rebuked them of practising such a doctrine? For a hireling is not a good shepherd. They are not serving God but are working for money. No matter how small the amount of money paid to you in a month, you are working for money. And it cannot be counted as God’s work. Because the Word of God is rendered without any remuneration. It is done gratis. Have you made this truth known to Bishops? If you put this truth to them, they will lock you inside and threaten you that you will not go out of the house.
The Pot Cannot Call the Kettle Black
I am looking for the Archbishops, Reverends, all those who profess to know the Scriptures so that I can reprove and rebuke them of their evil ways publicly. Can they proclaim to be Bishops, Pastors, Reverends and yet they sprinkle water on the faces of people and call it baptism? Our Lord Jesus Christ received baptism by immersion in water but they who claim to be leaders of church denominations refuse to be baptized. Why have they practised such a teaching as if they are blind?
Therefore, all of you who claim to be Brotherhood have erred because you have failed to reprove and rebuke people of their sinful ways. You have been incapacitated to do so because you are still committing these acts of sin yourself as they also are committing. Thus, you are a friend to them. Who will reprove the other? Should you do so, he will ask you about the ones you have been committing. You are forced to compromise at all times because the two of you are soaked in the same red oil.
Our Lord Jesus Christ said, "And for their sakes I sanctify myself that they also might be sanctified through the truth." The Dean of the Faculty of Religious Studies and Philosophy of a university came here to see the Father. And I asked him whether he is still drinking, he accepted; whether he was still committing fornication and he also accepted. I then asked him what he was then preaching to the people. And he kowtowed pleading for pardon. He confessed that he was working for his daily bread. This incident is not a dream but a physical manifestation.
Reprove evil with the Word of God
Another professor, a white woman of the Department of Religious Studies and Philosophy came here. She dressed in trousers. I questioned her why she was putting on trousers when the Scripture forbids such a tendency after opening to her a portion of the Bible. She accepted her mistake arguing that she came out of the office to see the Father and promised never to come in such a manner again. I do not place anybody in a place of comfort the moment you derail from the path of rectitude. Whether you are a governor, it does not matter in any way. If you claim to be our Lord Jesus Christ, come out and I will stop at nothing to reprove you against any wrong doings. That is my duty. When you are advised to come here and receive the Word of God, you continue to wonder about. In everything, you must quote from the Holy Scriptures. I do not make any pronouncement mentally but I freely quote directly from the Holy Scriptures. If you snuff, I will refer you to read that portion of the Scripture which warns against such a practice.
In your own case, what role are you playing? An elder in one of the church denominations came here confessing that he practises the Word of God. I asked him why he should snuff whereas he occupies the seat of an elder. He was bamboozled and asked whether there is any portion nominated in the Holy Bible against snuffing. I answered in the affirmative and quoted that portion to him. And he confessed that he had never heard such a passage before. Your duty is to reprove any person committing any act op‘ sin, if you alienate yourself from sinfulness. For anybody who snuffs, drinks, puts on fingerings, indulges in the preparation of concoction, quarrels, curses people, it is incumbent on him to be reprimanded. That is our assignment which is the Word of God. That was the work our Lord Jesus Christ came to accomplish. You have not yet started your journey on the path of rectitude. As people lazing about and claiming not having what to do, repave them and left to offer food or shelter to them. Who are they feeling from? But now you are a lazy person and he is lazy too. How can you rebuke a lazy man? Let our golden text be read. I do not wish to take you further. For I know that when a tank full of water is opened it will be difficult to lock back.
Golden Text: Galatians 2:14
"But when I saw that they worked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, if thou, being aJew, livest qfter the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as the Jews?"
Do you realise that the philosophical overtone of what has been read to you! It is said, "If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?" In the same vein, if you claim to be a Brotherhood, you know that. Brotherhood neither indulges in the preparation of concoction nor commits fornication, nor quarrels, but you as a Brotherhood member are still quarrelling, become exasperated, indulge in the preparation of concoction, tell lies, where lies the wisdom which you teach the people of the world to refrain from quarrelling, anger, and other evil acts?
Brotherhood subsumes righteousness
You visit hotels and there is a Brotherhood member there. You attend disco jamborees and there is a Brotherhood person there wearing long hats. A Brotherhood still institutes court action against people, quarrels, fights and commits other atrocities. But he goes about preaching the kingdom of God to people to forsake sin. You want the people to refrain from committing acts of sin but you are neck-deep in sinfulness. What is the wisdom to toe such a line?
Practise what you preach
You profess that there exists no concoction Or juju, that people should not go to hospitals for treatment, that people should not be administered with injections, But tomorrow you are found in a hospital to the surprise of those you had preached that such a tendency is bad. Why did you preach to them to forsake receiving medical treatment? That is the ‘why’ you are baptized as deceivers. And that is the reason you shrink into your shells when you find people go for treatments in hospitals. Consider Paul as a case in point. He suffered from ‘infirmity of the flesh’ but because he had preached to people against receiving treatment from hospitals, he was reluctant to go for a surgical operation. And therefore he died with this ‘infirmity of the flesh.’
The word of God is not an easy task. If you say that somebody should not tell lies, it is incumbent on you not to tell lies. If you say that somebody should not steal, why do you indulge in theft? If you show such a behavioural pattern, it means that you are baseless. Do you realise the intricacies involved in practising the word of God? Peter who had been with our Lord Jesus Christ went and ate things sacrificed unto idols. By so doing, the other Jews dissembled likewise with his in so much that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.
Be doers of the word and not hearers only
Paul who was not privileged to be in company of our Lord Jesus Christ in the flesh did not foal to reprimand Peter, 'But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, ‘If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of the Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?" It is neither the hearers of the word, nor the preachers of the word who shall be saved, but all those who practise the word of God shall have salvation. You are taught that Brotherhood neither keeps mourning houses, nor holds memorial services, no celebrate birthdays. All things are the same but why do you attend 'memorial services, keep mourning houses, and commit other evil things Are you a liar? That is why people speculate that you in Brotherhood have not seen God as a truth. That explains why your brothers, sisters friends refold to follow you into Brotherhood. For that construes that you are fooling around and that you are yet to come by the truth.
If You Refrain from Sins Many Will Follow You
If you had realised this truth, you would throw away all juju and diabolical things, you would forsake fornication, drinking and all the abominable life patterns you were wallowing in hitherto, and would have declared, to follow God in the correct perspective. You then preach that people should follow God and it is a truism they are bound to toe that line. You will realise a massive following because the people will come to the realization that you have refrained forthwith from committing fornication, ladies will come to you only to see you turn them down. Men will come to you to offer kick-backs and you reject their offers. With the turn of events, people are bound to believe in you.'
What I am preaching regarding reproving people of their wrong doings is what I intend to take up with the Archbishops, Reverends, and others who claim to be the first established church denomination. It is true that they were the first to come to such a knowledge, but what I am interested in is why they still drink, commit fornication, and snuff. What have they been preaching to the people? That is the argument which disgraces them. And I back my assertions with appropriate quotations from the Holy Scriptures. They claim to be the first to have people to forsake sins when they are swimming in the ocean of sinfulness?
Preach the Word of God, Rebuke, Reprove, Exhort, Advise and Admonish
Brethren, God is not respecter of persons. When Paul heard that Peter was eating things sacrificed unto idols which caused the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation, he went and reprimanded him and others for not walking uprightly according to the truth of the gospel." You have the right to reprove any person or any church denomination in the whole world if they do not follow the truth of the gospel. That is our work.
Look at the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, they are now wearing white because they regard the Father as their Leader. And that is what is expected of all church denominations in the whole world. Gradually, these denominations will be transformed into the true Brotherhood. What have you been doing when you go to them? Have you not been reproving them for carrying amulets on their bodies?
The Leader is No Respecter of Any Person
They claim that the Leader is no respecter of anybody. A former governor once came here. And I asked him why he should call himself a governor and yet he had no wife in the house but rather flirts about. I made this remark openly to him because I was interested in his salvation. No matter the station of any person in life whether he is a governor, president or whatever his position, it is your bounden duty to reprove and rebuke them once he derails from the path of rectitude. But in your own case, you always feign shy in the presence of such persons. This is precisely what is expected of you in doing God’s work. Your reproving them does not flood away their highly esteemed positions. Rather, it ensures that all persons walk according to the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is the hub around which my problem with all of you turns.
Brethren, you can then realise that the work is yet to start. So long as you still persist in sinfulness, what will you preach to others? You go about telling people that you want to offer them prayers, calling on God to send down His power. The person himself can pray. But it is your place to show him the wrongs he has been committing. Can one fetch water with a basket? If a hole is made in this house and you are required to fill the house with water, will you be able to fill it? Till dooms-day, the house will not be filled with water. Because as you pour in water, it will run out into the ground via the hole. The same holds true with the person who is a fornicator. You will anoint him with oil, beat him thrice on the head and pray over him. But all this spiritual work will be to no avail because of his continued indulgence in fornication.
The Aim of Brotherhood
A necromancer is also in the same shoes. You will anoint him with oil, give him the Holy Water to drink and pray God to send down His power on him. All your efforts will prove abortive if you do not first tell him to do away with all his diabolical materials, to refrain from fornication and to stop drinking. The moment he forsakes such evil tendencies, you have saved his soul. You can realise that what is the problem of all the inhabitants of the world is their reluctance to wash their hands off committing evil acts. That is why we are looking for land to build our own Brotherhood world where only righteousness will dwell, and where we will live according to the will of God. We do not want to pour libation for we have no other God than the word of God, to practise the word of God in its correct perspective. That is the aim of Brotherhood. In all the church denominations, Bishops, Reverends, Pastors, Apostles, Prophets, Elders do give the Holy Bible to people to swear. Why should they swear to an oath? For our Lord Jesus Christ had said, "But above all things, my brethren swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: But let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation." Is the Holy Bible meant to be sworn to or to be read?
I am patiently waiting for the established church denominations, the famous theologians, the great scientists to come and let us settle down to discuss the scriptures. Ours is regarded as a newly born baby child. And I accept that position. What pleases me is that at no point in time has any person succeeded to outwit the Father. Rather, the Father has always defeated the so-called intellectuals, professors, highly-placed and other esteemed persons to the society.
Whatever you are, I will stop at nothing to reprove you. Notwithstanding your string of degrees, they do not hold any importance before me. But I will rebuke and reprove you for committing any evil act. I will question why you are not baptized when you profess to be a Bishop, Professor or a person of high status in life. And they will prostrate on the ground accepting their foolishness. How I wish that the son should resemble his father. Unfortunately this has proved incongruous. But we have only one commandment. It is said, "They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick." That is what is holding in this kingdom. It is for this reason that our Lord Jesus Christ had said, "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draws him: and I will raise him up at the last day." This is what I am waiting for.
Brethren, I do not intend to be tedious unto you. It is said that one stroke of the cane is sufficient unto the wise. Those who have ears, let them hear. May God bless His holy words, Amen.
