ARE YOU READY FOR THE KINGDOM?
Beloved, the New Kingdom of God, which you had heard of and prayed for, is here with man. We are told that, the Kingdom of God is neither food nor drink but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. So beloved, always bear in mind that, the Kingdom is embedded in love, peace, joy, goodness, humility and the rest of the virtues of God. The Kingdom of God stands for oneness and togetherness. This explains the answer given when the Pharisees asked Christ when the Kingdom of God was coming. And He replied that the Kingdom of God will not come with signs to be observed, nor will they say, it is here or there, for behold, the Kingdom of God is in the midst of man.
The Kingdom of God does not constitute eating, dancing and merry making; rather it constitutes joy, holiness, silence, peace and truthfulness. The Kingdom of God does not constitute the construction of express roads neither does it constitutes the purchasing of ostentatious cars. Moreover, the Kingdom of God does not constitute the craftiness, immorality, deceitfulness and other vices, which you indulge in. The Kingdom of God does not tolerate illness and plights. Therefore, healing of the sick and giving people vision about how they are being possessed, and removing charms from people are not the main concern of the Kingdom of God. Our Lord Jesus Christ in one of His statements said that, not all those who call Him Lord, Lord would enter the Kingdom of God but those who do the will of His Father in heaven. He further stressed that, on the judgement day, many will say to Him, "Lord, Lord have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in the name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you, depart from Me, you that work iniquity". St. Matthew 7: 22-23.
It is not the Holy Oil that constitutes the Kingdom of God; neither is it demonstrated in being able to bath very clean; rather, the fear of God among other virtues, makes for the Kingdom of God. You must have heard the national chairman of the Crusade Fellowship saying that, no one is worthy of this Kingdom because of our arrogance and pride, but that everyone is called into the Kingdom out of mercy.
I feel that the sentence, THE LORD IS IN HIS HOLY TEMPLE, LET ALL THE EARTH KEEP SILENCE BEFORE HIM is a good reminder for anyone who comes in here, to shun discussion, arrogance, pride, noise-making, and violence, and embrace peace, silence, humility and decorum. Necklace, finger and earrings, bangles, medicated creams, and shoes are not needed in the Kingdom. Nothing defiled is acceptable in the Kingdom. Hairdressing, using of dressing cap, and wearing of gorgeous dress, is not required here in the Kingdom. But everyone is expected to be in peace, silence, and humility and generally be fearful of the Lord.
The Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit and the angels are here in the Kingdom. Moreover, all the prophets of old are present here in the Kingdom. If God were to open your eyes so that you may see all those present in the Kingdom, you would have sympathized with yourselves for the unwholesome things, which you indulge in. If you should be opportuned to see one angel, you would then realize that, none of them lifts up his face due to the extent to which they reverence, respect and fear the Father. The angels are always lying low, conscious of the fact that, this is the fullness of time for God to be glorified by all and sundry and not a time for arrogance and violence. The Kingdom of God is holy and undefiled. For this reason, a carnally minded person is not suitable for this Kingdom; such people should steer clear. Beggars are not needed in the Kingdom. So beggars, take note. All that is needed in the Kingdom is righteousness, peace, joy and the fear of God. For you to inherit the said Kingdom, it is imperative that you shun violence and pride and embrace peace and humility; this is the Kingdom which is very tough to inherit.
No material thing is needed here. Our Lord's Prayer states, 'Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven'. God wants obedience and absolute humility. This must be done for the glory of God. We do not come here to worship any thing but the Almighty God who created heaven and earth and the things therein. We are enjoined that, the Lord is Spirit, and that, where the spirit of God dwells, freedom abounds there. This freedom calls for everyone to worship, reverence and honor God as due. God alone is worthy to be worshipped, reverenced, feared, honoured and glorified. Therefore, it is incumbent on everyone to worship, fear and glorify God as due, everywhere and every time.
The Kingdom of God is not the streets, roads, houses and the like that exist, rather man is the Kingdom of God. That is why you must humble yourself, have mercy, peace, goodness and all other virtues and avoid being defiled. The Kingdom of God needs love and righteousness. That is why you should be righteous. God requires love and respect. Therefore, you must always love, respect and fear God in your mind, thoughts and deeds; for by so doing, you have glorified Him.
Everything in the entire world and in heaven belongs to God. All that you need to do in order to please Him is for you to glorify, fear and worship Him. We should also be truthful to one another in order to please God. Shunning of segregation pleases God much. So beloved, you need to abide by it.
The Kingdom of the world does not constitute of distinguished members of the society, the gorgeous and the ostentatious things of this world. The Kingdom of God requires none of these things. Recall, when the disciples of Our Lord Jesus Christ were indulging in fighting and struggling for higher positions among themselves, Our Lord Jesus Christ showed to them a little child and enjoined them that, they could only inherit the Kingdom of God should they be like the little child. If you had heard the Sabbath Children answering the questions posed to them, during the quiz competition, you would have been astonished. I do not think you can answer any of the questions, which these children answered. One of the questions asked is, 'who is the greatest in this Kingdom? What would you give as an answer, if the question were posed to you?
In St. Matthew 11: 11. Our Lord Jesus Christ said:
"Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist, notwithstanding he that is least in the Kingdom of heaven is greater than he:"
What was said about Jesus the Christ? He healed the sick, was preaching ceaselessly, was good, kind, charitable to all and sundry with all amount of humility. In fact, He humbled Himself till death. And as a result of the humility, He possessed was given a name that surpasses all names. Always try to abide by the injunctions of the Holy Spirit. Try and acquire every gospel from the Everlasting Gospel Center and abide by them, because if you fail to do these things, you would regret at last. Make sure you impart to others what you derive from practicing the gospel of God, to avoid regrets at the end. Being a president, chairman, treasurer or occupying any other position in the world does not mean anything; the only profitable thing is for one to be humble. Rejoice not for donating a fat sum of money to the services of God, for this is not worth anything, for God is the Sole Owner of all things. Instead, rejoice for having worshipped glorified and feared God. For these are the things needed in this Kingdom. The spirit of violence and arrogance which you possess are from Lucifer because, violence, war, fighting, pride etc., are earthly. The spirit of controversy in you is the spirit of Lucifer. In fact, it is the spirit of Lucifer that is ruling over humanity. That is why the world lives in violence. Houses of Assembly, senate, Presidency and the entire world are at loggerheads with themselves as a result of the spirit of Lucifer prevalent. But unfortunately, people keep on blaming God for designing certain things the way they are. The entire world has so valued and preferred the things of this world to the extent that, most people always become annoyed and bothered for not being rich or blessed with certain things. Oblivious of the fact that, these things are vanity. Psalm 24: 1-5 states:
"The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein for he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart, who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitful. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation".
When you hear that Jesus Christ cursed some people at the temple and chased them away, you should not misconstrue the temple to mean the created structure, for the temple in this case, refers to people's heart. Our Lord Jesus Christ having seen that the Jews had a great lust for the things of the world decided to flush such lust out from the people. So beloved, always come here with a pure heart, to avoid being beaten, as Jesus did to the Jews. We have been told that the worldly people always think of the carnal things and that, being carnally minded is dead while being spiritually minded, is life and peace. There is no worldly person who has peace and hope for the Kingdom of God because their hearts are filled with carnal thoughts and desires. We are taught that, the eyes of the Lord are always on the righteous. This is to prove to you that God needs nothing carnal but heavenly things that are righteous. The carnally minded human beings would never bow down to God till eternity and cannot please Him because they are at all times waging war against God. Now that you request things forcefully from the Father, does it mean that the Father is your mate? Those who claim that God is not in existence are the carnally minded people because their thoughts can never allow them to think anything good. On the other hand, a spiritually minded person would always be glorifying, fearing and respecting God because his thoughts always reflect the heavenly things.
This Kingdom is the one dreamt about by King Nebuchadnezzar and interpreted by Daniel, the Prophet. Most Britons in the olden days were seeking where God was worshipped without carnal desires and thoughts to the extent that, they bought a piece of land in West Indies and dwelt there. Americans on the other hand, has become the land of Satan where violence, vices and sins dwell. Lucifer has conquered America and is ruling over it.
THE VIRTOUS KINGDOM
It is only humility that is needed in the Kingdom of God That is the reason why you are enjoined to humble yourself so that God may exalt you. Here in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, we do not worship any other thing, but God; God has come by Himself into the world. That is the reason why humility, the celestial attribute should be possessed by those who so wish to be enlisted into the Kingdom. God dwells in us, and does not need anything defiled. As a result it is incumbent on every member of this Kingdom to purge himself of anything that defiles the body. Having been defiled, God is bound to leave you empty, because He does not dwell in defiled places. One of our Publications, THE FIRST STEP TO GOD stresses the need for us to stop beating of drums, burning of candles and incense, and clapping of hands. These things do not glorify God, hence we are told to do away with them. Your duty on earth is to glorify, honor and fear God. It is imperative that you shun violence and segregation and embrace love for one another. The Bible has told us that, anyone who wishes to be friendly with the world, is God's foe, and the moment you are friendly with God, you have automatically become an enemy of the world. The Americans are friendly with the world by trying to invent things extraordinary, and as such they are God's foe and have failed. If out of your desire for one to come into Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, you advise a person to put on his shoes and come into the hall, you have failed, because you are friendly with the world, but an enemy to God. So beloved, do not be deceived by anybody, because we are those that worship God both in spirit and in truth. Read the first lesson again:
FIRST LESSON: REVELATION 11: 15
"And the seventh angel sounded, and there were great voices in heaven, saying, the Kingdom of this world are become the Kingdoms of our Lord and his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever".
BROTHERHOOD, THE KINGDOM OF GOD
Where is the Kingdom referred to as the Kingdom of God and His Christ? It is Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. In the past years, you were indulging in various sins like falsehood, immoralities, drunkenness and the like, but today, the reverse is the case, because you have been changed completely by the Father. Those who indulge in sins ceaselessly are of the world and are in the Kingdom of the world. But having been called into this Kingdom, you are exposed to the Divine Teachings of God, and being baptized with water, you have been changed completely. By this time, you are suitable to be addressed as a child of God in the New Kingdom of God and His Christ. All the things written in the Holy Bible are exclusively about man, and not any other creature. The most important aspect of it, is how and why man should be changed from his sinful state to the way of rectitude. A man can only be changed if he possesses all the virtues of God, which in fact informs the reason why the Father always enjoins us to possess love, peace and other virtues.
The people of the past generations were very adamant to the words of God and could not hearken to the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Sequel to the fact that He found people not regarding His teachings, He said:
"I have yet may things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now, Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth; for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak; and he will shew you things to come. St. John 16: 12-13.
The said Holy Spirit of truth is now in your midst. We are told that, knowledge makes one to be proud and pompous, but love leads man unto righteousness. For instance, it was as a result of the knowledge, which our first parents professed to have possessed that they became proud and ate of the forbidden fruit. Unfortunately, it was after they had eaten of the said forbidden fruit that their problems and hardship emanated. The lifestyles exhibited by the people of the world are counterfeit for they are carnally minded. This explains why confusion and untold hardship manipulate the world, as there is no love, peace, fear and respect for God. As a result of this, the people of the world claim that, Brotherhood of the Cross and Star members are fearing and worshipping man, instead of joining them to enjoy life.
When the foundation of the world was yet to be made Brotherhood of the Cross and Star was in existence. All the material things like clothing, shoes, cars, houses etc, are newly introduced into the world just as stealing, falsehood, immoralities and the like, are also newly introduced into the world. But today, people are complaining that, restrictions are too many in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. However, the truth is that, whoever is not destined to be here, cannot be here, as said by Our Lord Jesus Christ in St. Matthew 15: 13. "But he answered and said, every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up" Sequel to the above text, every body should know that the Father is here on earth, just for the purpose of uprooting the counterfeit life style which the people of the world are indulging in.
Some time ago, the inhabitants in different parts of the world were using different commodities as money, until recently when people started having their own currency. The entire inhabitants of the world are carnally minded; they always long to acquire one material thing or the other. There is nobody in the world that is truthful. Do not think that the Father's assignment here on earth is to pray for you to acquire the material things of this world. The Father is here to aid you change from your sinful ways to the way of rectitude.
The world had since perished; for that reason, the Father found it imperative to come to the world personally in order to change man from sinfulness to righteousness. If you listen to the testimony that one Brother always render, you would have known that the entire world is empty. If Brother Amadi who has a doctorate degree in religion and philosophy, and lives in the United Kingdom for years, should proclaim that, all the Universities are empty and without knowledge, one should then realize that, the whole world is empty and without knowledge. This is to show you that, God uses the little or relegated things to disgrace the big or exalted things. The knowledge of the world is not required here in the Kingdom. God is not a white, therefore the English language you boast of speaking very well, is insignificant. For this reason I always tell you to compose every song in your local dialect. Humility is not learnt but it is inert but pride and arrogance are learnt and practiced. So, know from here that, humility is godly and heavenly, while pride and arrogance are earthly, carnally and counterfeit.
Mankind was given every plant with seed for food, but today, you are eating falsehood, immoralities and drunkenness. Would you say that the things you eat are the food you were meant to eat? Our Father, Abraham engaged in cattle rearing and farming. The trade by barter system of exchange of the past is still in vogue in the world. That is the reason why you see one country exporting what it has in abundance to other countries who are in need of such goods and commodities, and in return, imports what she does not have. This is of no use at all. If people were to emulate our Father, Abraham, there would have been much food for all. And there would not have been any problem in the world. The fact that mankind has refused to eat the food (fruit) which he was meant to eat the different diseases and illnesses will continue to plague them. But, whoever eats the correct food as prescribed by God cannot become aged and cannot complain of any stomach ache, for the fruit you eat is the flesh of Our Lord Jesus Christ. But so long as you have failed to abide by the injunctions of God regarding the food you eat, Genesis 1:29 you will continue to have various problems.
The material things of this world are enslaving most people, yet they are still vowing not to bow down for anything made by man. Have you now seen the extent to which the people of the world are stupid? God deserted Adam and Eve due to fornication (defiling God's dwelling place). So beloved, for God to dwell in you forever, you need to keep yourself holy. It is immorality that killed our first parents, Adam and Eve. If you care to be saved, you need to shun immoralities; for a child who walks circumspectly would kill what killed his father, but a child who does not walk circumspectly would be killed by what killed his father. Immorality is so dreadful a sin that, Christ commented on it thus:
And Jesus answering said unto them, 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. Neither can they die any more. For they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection. St. Luke 20: 34-36
You would know that there are three categories of eunuchs as recorded in St. Matthew 19: 12.
"For they are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mothers womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men; and there are eunuchs, which have made them self eunuchs for the Kingdoms of heaven’s sake, he that is able to receive it, let him receive it."
Eve was married to Adam and they begot children but at a later time, Adam decided not to be intimate with Eve any longer. He decided to remain undefiled a eunuch from that time. With that attempt, God helped Adam to get rid of the lust of a woman, and from that time till the period of 930 years which he (Adam) lived on earth, he interacted as a brother with his wife, Eve. The people of the world however, have rejected this good example. They can do anything to be intimate with women from their date of birth to the date of death. And the women too are not left out of this unwholesome act. Note that the main aim of keeping a woman and man as the case may be is to procreate. But today, men and women have changed this course to something else; this is the source of their problems. Immorality gives birth to cases of abortion in the world. This unhealthy phenomenon has claimed lives of some promising youths in both advanced countries and the developing ones. But the question is, why do man indulge in immoralities? Let it be known that, immorality cannot avail you anything, instead, it kills. Immorality demarcates man from God, because God had earlier enjoined us that, we should be holy, else, He would not dwell in us but that, He would desert us. Presently, God is waging a war against sins and this is the Armageddon war, which you had been hearing about. The aim of this war is to eradicate sins and evils from His dwelling place. Once God succeeds in this war, man will then be fit for God to dwell in.
But for God, no other person can change a fellow man. Healing the sick is an easy task but the ultimate work one can boast of, is to change mankind from sinfulness to righteousness. That is the reason why I always bring to your notice that the government wages war against indiscipline, while Brotherhood of the Cross and Star wages war against sins. This Kingdom of God is holy and should be kept holy. That is why it is incumbent on every member of this fold to abide by the injunctions of the Father and purge himself from sins and embrace every virtue of God. The Father has conquered Satan in the Armageddon war. Hitherto, Satan ruled you, but now the Father has come, conquered Satan and has drawn His people to Himself. Having been brought into this Kingdom, you have to do away with sins as best you could.
THE PARADISE LOST, REGAINED
After creation, man and animals co-existed in harmony. There was no issue of one killing the other for meat or in self-defense. But as time went on, man started treating the other creatures ruthlessly. Consequently, the hostility spread to all the other Kingdom like the fish, birds, reptiles etc. the animals on their part, in self defense started killing man at sight. The original order of life as designed by God was about peaceful co-existence in love and oneness. This was however destroyed by man due to his lust and wickedness. Now, I have peace and oneness to the world. Before now, mankind had completely deviated from the rule of love and created artificial code of life based on segregation, differences and wickedness. You now allocate names and titles to yourselves, as a mark of superiority over another. Have you not witnessed the gradual fall of the kingdom of the world and also the rapid growth of the kingdom of God? The entire system of the world is in shambles and confusion.
What prevails now on earth is love. The love of one another is the law in force now. No sinner is granted entry into this Kingdom because it is exclusively for the righteous. The beneficiaries of the kingdom have been granted profound peace and joy in the whole of their lives. All the children of God have every cause to eschew sins and live in love and righteousness. This is the time of joy for all the children of God. Where in this world can you see a group of people say, up to five hundred in number in a particular gathering without rancor and violence even with the presence of law enforcement agents? But here in this Kingdom, no matter the number of people and the size of the gathering, we are always in unison, love and peace, devoid of any form of violence. In spite of this, we do not employ the services of law agencies to protect both property and people.
Where in the whole world apart from Brotherhood, the Kingdom of God, can you see both the rich and the poor eat together and drink from the same cup? Here, you have professors, Royal Highnesses, Commissioners, Lawyers, Doctors, Artisans etc, share everything in common. We do not segregate nor discriminate at all. In short, as the whole world is gradually being united in peace, love and righteousness, segregation, stealing, murder, gossip, blasphemy etc, are replaced by virtues of God. In other words, in the nearest future vice shall be completely eradicated and replaced by virtues of God. Have you not experienced a remarkable change in your life in Brotherhood? This is exclusively the working of the Holy Spirit. Read the second Bible lesson once again:
SECOND LESSON: HEBREWS 12: 28
"Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear".
CHRIST: THE EPITOME OF HUMILITY
Brethren, have you now realized the reason why you should serve God wholeheartedly? You should at all times avoid living a sinful life and embrace righteousness for the sake of gaining this Kingdom. In the past, you were ignorant of this knowledge hence Christ said that, all those who came before Him were thieves and robbers. St. John 10: 8. Of all the prophets of old and those that came in the name of the Lord, Our Lord Jesus Christ was the only begotten of God. Those who were before Him neither know God nor imbibed His Divine words. They were all projecting their personal glory. If you should recall, you would realize that, of all the people that were baptized by John, it was only Our Lord Jesus Christ who got the Holy Spirit. At the completion of the baptism, the Holy Spirit descended upon Him and was declared the beloved Son of God. St. Matthew 3: 17 He is the only one who baptizes man with the Holy Spirit and with the spoken words. The people of the world could not understand Him because of the state of their sinfulness. Christ was the epitome of humility. He demonstrated absolute humility to the people in all He did. Throughout His 33 years on earth, lived a complete righteous life devoid of blemish. Therefore, as a follower of Christ, it is not performing His word that is important but it is for you to emulate His lifestyle to the letter. You should copy His meekness, humility, self control, kindness and selfless service to humanity. He did not quarrel with any man. All His services were rendered free. He treated everybody equally. He did not impute sin to any man rather, His main concern centered on the welfare and salvation for all. Throughout His ministry, He was not heard in the streets.
Your life as a member of Brotherhood should project you as a light in any community you find yourself. You should not do anything that is capable of dragging the name of God in the mud. When you fornicate, kill, steal, hate, fight, quarrel, discriminate or sow the seed of discord, you have soiled the name of God. There is nothing else that God expects from you apart from holiness. You cannot build a house for Him, for He does not live in a house built by man, after all, heaven and earth belong to Him. Everything under the sun belongs to God. It is left for you to subject yourself to the dictate of the Holy Spirit so that He can take over your whole life. You are the house of God; God has no other dwelling place. So, if you give up yourself to the dictate of the evil spirit due to your sinfulness, you have yourself to blame for rendering your Creator homeless. You should purge yourself of any trace of evil. Whenever you say, 'LET', the devil will surely depart from you.
Forward ever and backward never as all hands must be on deck towards the glory of God. Once God makes His abode in you, you have overcome the world and things would take a new turn in your life. Under such condition, you would be thinking about the salvation of others and your life would be centered on God. Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is the Kingdom of God on earth long expected.
The people of the world rejoice and boast of their horses and chariots, but we in this Kingdom are joyous and boastful in the sense that we are saved. Our joy is in Our Lord Jesus Christ that was nailed to the cross for the salvation of man. We are not interested in the material things of this world but in the Kingdom of God. Our goal is in righteousness, peace, and everlasting joy. Everlasting life is also our goal. It is quite true that a seed of maize cannot yield fruits except it is sown and finally germinates. When it grows, it yields plenty of fruits. Have you not seen that Christ has yielded many fruits today? He is now heard and worshipped all over the world. His name has spread to wherever man is found. None can deny the existence of God today. With the presence of God, His children are at liberty to spread the good tidings of their Father's Kingdom throughout the world. Satan has therefore buried himself in shame. Satan has nothing to do with the creation of man nor can he provide life. Therefore, why should Satan mislead man? You should realize that the most powerful weapon that Satan dreads is the word of God. Whenever you preach the word, Satan is bound to take to his heels. There is much joy in this Kingdom among the children of God. There is a very big gulf between the children of Brotherhood and the world. Here in the Kingdom, we do not drink, fornicate, loot, defraud, gossip, nor live according to the prompting of the flesh. We do not practice what is preached and regarded by the world. We live in unity, oneness and love because of the existence of God in our midst.
THE DWELLING PLACE OF GOD
In times past, God did not have a place to lay His head. He had no house just as it is written:
"And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man hath no where to lay his head. St. Matthew 8: 20".
Our Lord Jesus Christ lacked a place to lay His head because man had defiled himself, thereby ejecting God from His house. But today, the situation is different. The dwelling place of God is now with men and it ever remains unshakable. Many people who have now come to the realization of this fact have abandoned the world and baptized into Brotherhood. That is the reason why the people of the world keep on wondering what the Father has given to you to keep you in the Kingdom. They are surprised to see the influx of people into the Kingdom. Some of the men from the world who mistakenly think that they could use their wealth to entice some sisters in the fold for marriage are easily rebuffed whenever they approach them. Being so surprised at this, they become confused. For this reason, they are greatly confused and believed strongly that, there is something secret in this Kingdom. The only secret that is still hidden to them is absolute righteousness. The real meaning of the term, 'the new lease of life', as used in this Kingdom is quite different from what is understood by the world. It is because of this ignorance that the children of Brotherhood often express their sympathy to the people of the world. The people are merely awaiting the impending doom that would befall them.
I have completely changed you (members of Brotherhood) from all manners of sin. You are now counted worthy in the sight of God. You are now living a life devoid of vice. It is therefore your duty to teach the people of the world what I have taught you so that, they too might be partakers of the glory of this Kingdom.
He, who is in you, has taken complete dominion over your entire life. You can no more experience poverty, sorrow, weeping, gnashing of teeth and lamentation. Also, you need not be guided by anyone because the Supernatural Teacher is in you. He is the one who teaches and directs you in all matters. Everything under the sun has been brought under total subjection. Be rest assured that joy, peace, prosperity and every good thing has been restored to you. The reign of Christ is for eternity, for there will be no other Kingdom apart from Brotherhood of the Cross and Star forever.
The promise of God is now fulfilled in this generation. He has written down His laws in our hearts and has forgiven our sins. You have been intimated of everything about the Kingdom. Therefore, you should not be in doubt of anything at all. Have you seen that the Lord is merciful to your un-righteousness? This was the covenant made to us several generations ago. Read Hebrews 8: 10-12. In appreciation, you have to reverence God and give Him His due glory. So beloved, since God has taken dominion of your entire body, you should refrain completely from all manners of sinfulness, so that He will continue to abide in you. He is the sole provider of everything you need. You have been advised:
"Follow peace with all men and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord" Hebrews 12: 14.
God is immortal and all that follow Him are equally immortal. Any man who wants to see the glory of God should refrain from all manners of sin and be baptized in to the Kingdom in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. If you do this, you will surely see the glory of God. You have been charged to go from house to house office to office, market to market, throughout the world to preach the gospel. Wherever you go to, your presence alone is enough to scare away every diabolical thing. In the real sense, it is not the wish of the people to commit sins. Many are compelled into sinful acts as a result of the spirit in them and above all, put a deaf ear to the sound teaching. Therefore, it is your charge as soldiers of God to meet the people face to face and impart to them the sound and recondite teachings of the Holy Spirit. They should receive the word of God and accept baptism. By so doing, they will surely gain salvation. If they accept this, the Holy Spirit will be infused into the bottom of their hearts. Read our golden text once again:
GOLDEN TEXT: REVELATION 21: 27
"And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie; but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life".
WE ARE CHOSEN
It is said, many are called but few are chosen St. Matthew 20: 16. If you decide to give yourself any name or you continue to flirt from one church denomination to the other, without practicing the laid down principles as observed in this Kingdom, you are merely groping in the dark. You have read from our golden text that, there shall in no wise enter into it, anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie but they which are written in the lamb's book of life. One is not considered worthy in the sight of God on the basis of bodily beauty, the amount of wealth possessed, but the level of righteousness attained. In order to be counted worthy, you must refrain from vices, you must love your fellow man, love God, show reverence to Him and glorify His holy name. If you have any bit of sin in you, you are not qualified for this Kingdom.
None has ever come into this Kingdom and led by the Holy Spirit without testifying about the presence of God. As soon as you come in here, even before you slip into the 'Beautiful Gate', the first thing that strikes you is the presence of God. As soon as you surrender yourself to Him, your problems will be completely taken away. Brotherhood has nothing to do with sinners. For you to be qualified for this Kingdom, you have to be free from sin. In this Kingdom, we do not marry nor are given in marriage. But, whoever had married before now should remain as though he is single. What we are after is brotherly love. Disassociate yourself completely from the lust for materialism in order to be able to serve your Creator wholeheartedly.
Brethren, a stroke of a cane is enough for the wise, may God bless His Holy Words. Amen.
THANK YOU FATHER.
