"For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus".

"But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren".

"Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all".
I have repeatedly said that the kingdoms of this world have become the Kingdom of the Almighty God and His Christ, because only God and His Christ rule and reign in the entire universe. Once you are baptised and have accepted Christ as your personal saviour, you are saved. The more the number of people who have accepted Christ, the greater the chances of a peaceful world. It is only the Almighty God and His Christ who exist, none other. The songs, dances, visions, donations preaching are done by Christ Himself. He is the doer of all things. He is all things, in all things and for all things.
This is why our doctrine in all stations of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is the same. He is the one responsible for all activities in the fold. Mode of dressing and the conduct of all services are the same, because, we are in perfect oneness. We do not boast of money, wealth, and inheritance or in human beings. Our boast is only in our Lord Jesus Christ. There is no distinction between men and women, neither is there any difference between children nor adults. We do not have the rich and the poor here. Our Lord Jesus Christ is all things for all people here. If you preach powerful gospel which make people to subject themselves even to the extent of lying flat on the ground, do not arrogate such glory to yourself for Christ is the one preaching.

Do not claim to be a very devoted member in worshipping God, because everything is done by Christ in this Kingdom. Our joy, boastfulness and faith are all in Christ. Our love and hopes are also in our Lord Jesus Christ. From the very day you are baptised into Christhood, you have put on Christ as your garment. From the very day you are in spiritual unity with Christ, whatever a person does to you is done directly to Christ. This is so, because, your entire body and soul are completely enveloped in Christ. In such a divine state, any harm intended against you is directed to Christ and no weapon fashioned against Him can prosper. Good and evil directed to you are directed to Him. We are now one in Christ, so, do not attempt to disintegrate oneness, what God has united as one. Henceforth, there is no more division for we are one in Christ.
Your problem is that you do not believe in the truth. If you had believed, you would have realised that from the day you are baptised into Christhood, you have actually put on Christ. It is said, 'man know thyself and you will know all things’. If you had known that, the flesh, which was your former state, had died and that Christ has dominion over you, you would not have had any problem. Your body, which moves about as a being is not you, but the Christ of God. I want you to understand and stamp this fact within your mind that your flesh, bones, blood and your entire body has been taken over by Christ. God has one child and that child is Christ, who also is you. That is to say that, we are all children of God and brethren in Christ. The rank of a Pastor, Bishop, Pope and others are mere titles for duties, which have nothing to do with class distinction. This is because only Christ exists and works.

Though, we may be uncountable as sand in the seashore, yet we are that one Christ. Only God and His Christ alone rule and reign in this Kingdom of God. You are the children of God and one in the Father. That is why, whenever you want to pray, the same words come out from different persons. This is only possible because of that oneness in spirit. We all have one spirit because we are one in Christ. Both the Father and the Son are but one. Our Spiritual song says, 'I and my Father are one, the Father is in me and I in my Father". This is very true.
I am one in the Father, you are one in the Father, all other people are equally one in the same Father. The Father is only one, which automatically means that, we are all one and indivisible whole. So, whether they put you into a burning furnace, in water, beneath the earth, and in any other place, you are still one in the Father. Nothing has power to hurt you spiritually or physically as long as you are one with the Father. Your actions and thoughts will not be directed by the flesh, but by the Father. You are doing exactly what the Father is doing at any point in time.
The wordings of the following spiritual songs are quite correct that, 'From the day I accepted Him, I have received real peace’. Yes! From the day you received baptism, your mundane flesh had been destroyed and buried in water. What came up from the water was Christ who lives.
If you are asked of the membership strength of Brotherhood, say that, the Almighty God and His Christ are the only people. Brotherhood has Almighty God and His Christ are the only people. Brotherhood has Almighty God and His Christ alone. So, whatever you do and wherever you go to, Christ is in you. He is before and behind and does everything for you. It is written that:

"Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost". (1 Corinthians 12: 3).

So only God can pronounce the Lordship of our Lord Jesus Christ. In other words, spirit of the flesh cannot call Jesus, Lord. We here, know the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; for that reason, we call Him our Lord Jesus Christ. We also call Him the Son of man, Son of God and God Himself. You can see that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are but one. For authority and confirmation, see excerpt below:
"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one". (1 John 5: 7). That is the trinity God.
God is the doer of all things in this Kingdom. We are His children and witnesses unto His great works. That is why He directed us not to cause division, steal, cheat or deceive people. We should emulate God because He is above all evil. As children of God we should not do what God Himself does not do. If you discriminate, you have displeased the Holy Spirit and caused His grief. Some say that, women are free now in Brotherhood. Let it be known to you that, there are no distinction between women and men in this fold. It is a carnal statement to say that God has liberated women and that no man has any right over a woman. When the men hear such words, they are troubled. This is why the Father is making these corrections through His gospel. From this year, 1991 on, everybody should take this correction.
Any city or kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. If the thought of the distinction between males and females is still allowed in your midst, it means you are divided. How then can it stand firm? If you are still conscious of the distinction between males and females, it means you are divided. How then can you stand firm? If you are still conscious of the distinction between adults and children, it means you are divided against yourselves. You therefore cannot stand firm. In this Kingdom, there is no men, women nor children. Only Christ exists. He is all things, in all and for all. This gospel is for the entire inhabitants of the world in order to correct them from their false behaviour. In this way, they would behold the joy, wealth, wisdom, faith and hope endowed in Christ. If all your hope, belief and faith are not in Christ, then you have derailed from the path of rectitude.

Now, if you are given a hand bell to ring round the town informing everybody to assemble at the town square, but you go about announcing that all women should gather at the town’s square, do you think any man will answer the call? Since men were not called, they will not attend such a meeting. The call was intended for Christ to come, not woman nor men. When men and women come together, you have Christ. It is written:
"For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world". (1 Corinthians 11: 31-32).
Do you think that a situation, in which a man fails to govern, a woman can do it successfully? Both man and woman are one. God has seen that no human being can rule. For this reason, He has come by Himself to lead, rule and reign over all things. The Mother’s Day celebration is for both women and men. The same is true of the Father’s Day. The Queen Mother’s visit is equally for all. Since you have restricted the Queen Mother’s visit to only women affair, men on their part felt reluctant to attend even Her visit to London. On the other hand, men have made the King of Kings visit mainly men affair, which is also wrong. For this reason women find it difficult to attend King of Kings visits. This is a step at division in the Kingdom of God, which is oneness. So you have to know that, there is neither man nor woman for we are all Christ, since Christ is one, we are all one. There is no division between the Christ Students, Congregation, Christ Witnesses, Pastors, Christ Servants, Choristers and others. We are all one. Everything is Christ’s. That is why you have the Christ Students, Christ Natural Crusaders, Christ Servants, Christ Natural Choir and Christ Natural Choristers. You also have Christ Universal Spiritual Council of Churches. The whole universe is included in this one new name.
You have your various problems because of your mistakes. With your words and actions, you have caused divisions. This is the cause of failure in your efforts to grow in spirit. You regard one occasion as only women affair, while the other is mainly men’s, yet you regard the other occasion as purely for children. Men do not attend the occasion meant for women nor women attend that of men. Also adults do not attend children’s meeting. This is the cause of your suffering. See the first lesson below:

"For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus".

Have you now known the difference between Brotherhood and the worldly people? What is written in the first lesson is Brotherhood and it is practiced here. That is why once you are baptised by immersion into Christ in Brotherhood, you are a different person entirely from your blood relations. From the day you are baptised, they would start to keep away from you; a line of demarcation would be drawn between you and them. They have not entered the Kingdom, while you are right inside. The moment you tell one of your family members, that you are now a baptised Brotherhood, he changes his attitude towards you instantly. You may not know the cause of the demarcation. Such a person is of the flesh and worldly, while you are of the Holy Spirit. You have become part and parcel of the Spirit of God and His Christ.
Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is not a church; neither prayer house nor a healing home. It is the Kingdom of God. So, when a member claims that his church is Brotherhood, he speaks out of ignorance. He is called the God of multitude, with His myriads of hosts. Do you know that none of the members of this fold is left alone? Wherever you are, you are with myriads of angels. Any baptised Brotherhood is never alone, wherever you go to, you are guarded by a multiple of angels and the Father is in you. That is why, members easily overcome any situation they find themselves in. Millions of people may waylay them, but they easily overcome them, because, the one in them is greater than the one in the world.
You can see that the statement of our Lord Jesus Christ is fulfilled in you that, 'I and my Father are one’. Wherever you go, God is there. The hosts of heaven, the angels, all spirits, children, Father, Son and the Holy Spirit are with you at all times. All things submit to the will of the Father in you. So do not fear anything visible or invisible. Whatever good thing you find yourself doing, do not think that you are the one actually doing it. If any person tells you that, he wants to see Christ, tell him that, the one before him speaking is the Christ. Although you know that, you have the right to say this, you are afraid to say it. Instead, you keep referring people to 34 Ambo Street and 26 Mbukpa Road, Calabar.

You have therefore left the truth to falsehood. Christ is the one who heals us and solves all our problems. So, there is no other power or thing in existence here in the Kingdom apart from God and His Christ. This Kingdom is the embodiment of the Almighty God and His Christ. This is the Kingdom of God. There is no house, palace, planet or plane that is big enough to accommodate Him. He is everywhere and has filled all planes and beings. As He is everywhere, we are equally found everywhere and in all beings. In the Atlantis, subterranean, astral and in all spiritual planes, we are found lavishly. We are Omnipresent and Universal.
We are with the Father wherever He is. So, when the Father said, 'Let us make man in our own image’ (Genesis 1: 26), who constitute the people in the plural terms ('us’ and 'our’) as used in the above statement? It is out of ignorance for members to continue to request for one thing or the other. You should know that, you are not alone. Once you preach and proclaim before people that, the Almighty God and His Christ have come down to earth, you have done the right thing. Do not say that some one has backslided or has gone out of Brotherhood, Brotherhood is everything.
All those who have not received this baptism into Christhood in Brotherhood are not the children of God. Such persons have not Christ, for they are of the flesh. Though your father may be a bishop, Prime Minister or governor or occupies any other exalted post, he is of the flesh so long as he is not baptised into Christhood and in this Kingdom. However, the moment he accepts and is baptised by immersion, he would abide by Christ and the spirit of the Most High. This is the only source to being exalted to the position of Christ and a child of God.

You should be very careful with the un-baptised brethren. They should be under you and it is your duty to teach them all that is observed in this Kingdom, irrespective of their status. Nevertheless, do not segregate against them, for that is not the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ. Bring them up in the teaching of this fold so that, there may be one flock under one shepherd. Brotherhood is a Universal Kingdom. As a baptised Brotherhood, you have been vested with the Divine power from the Holy Father. As such, you have every authority to control the un-baptised brethren. You are no more an ordinary human being. You have hence, been transformed from carnal state into the state of immortality. Therefore, you have the right to teach anybody, even the presidents, ministers and top government functionaries. You have no cause to fear because everything has been subdued. Read the second lesson again:

"But be not ye called Rabbi: for none is your Master even Christ; and all ye are brethren"

The presence of smoke is an indication that, there is fire at a particular place. Similarly, Christ is the force, which indicates that, God is present in the world. Now, it is an established fact that, you are Christ. Therefore, wherever you go to, it is not you per se going there, but the Father. In teaching the un-baptised brethren of the world, let them know that, it is the Father who is working. Do not tell them anything contrary to what is done in this Kingdom, else, you mislead them. Let your teachings to them be directed to the glory of the Father.
In the entire world, there is only one Being who is the greatest and this is the Son of God. Who is the Son of God? It is you. Everybody is a child of God. There is no segregation in the Kingdom of God, for all are from the same stock. The fact that one is a Deaconess, a Pastor, an elder, a chorister, or with any other title is not that such a person is a child of God. The Christ’s of God are the real children of God. The children of God are brethren. You have been fused together by the love of God. Therefore, you and the Father are one. Since you are one with the Father, you are indestructible. As a child of God, you are not a woman, man, child, slave or free. You are just the child of God; nothing more or less 1 John 3: 2 states:

"Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him: for we shall see him as he is".

Since creation, which man has ever healed the sick, raised the dead, made the dumb to speak, the lame to walk and the blind to see, except God? None! You have been warned not to keep company with unbelievers. This is because; an unbeliever has nothing good to offer you as a believer. The temple of devil has nothing to do with the temple of God. As the child of the Most High God, you are warned to disassociate yourself from the world. See authority below:
"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty". (2 Corinthians 6: 17-18)
Our Lord Jesus Christ came to bear witness and testify about the Holy Spirit. And in one stance, He said:
"Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:…" (John 16: 13)
Now, the Holy Spirit, even the Comforter has come to reveal Christ and testify about Him. The two of them do not differ in their pronouncements. Today, the world does not believe that the promised Comforter is here on earth. They take Brotherhood of the Cross and Star to be a demonic organisation. As such, they dread the ordained ones, especially the Deaconesses, Evangelists and Apostles.
As it was in those days, so it is today. It is said that, Jesus Christ is the same today, tomorrow and forever. He is the owner of everything in heaven and on earth. This being the case, you have every cause to rejoice and move majestically to every part of the world. Gather all the children of God unto Him for a proper management in the Kingdom of God. Our Lord Jesus Christ came to reveal the Father. Now it is the Father who is revealing the Son. This was why He said:

"I and my Father are one" (St. John 10: 30). And in another stance He declared:
"He shall glorify me; for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you". (St. John 16: 14-15)

Christ is the one that represented God, the Father. He controlled all the powers available at that time. This was the reason the Disciples of Christ were killed. The Jews did not want Him to be known as the Messiah, because, they were still expecting a messiah. Today, the story is different. Everybody can talk about Christ at every place without any problem.

In Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, baptism is the only source of power. Once you are baptised, you are as strong as the Rock of Gibraltar. Nothing can harm you. Those who continue to complain of being bewitched are the ones who fail to believe in the Son and the Father. The baptism in Brotherhood is the armour of God, which protects one from every weapon. This armour symbolises the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Wherever you may be, you are fully protected by the triune Godhead. Our Lord Jesus Christ said that:

"… Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit". (St. John 12: 24).

The Holy Spirit is this grain of seed, which has brought forth much fruit. In this fold, a little child can just stand up to deliver a very strong gospel, which even the Pope can not deliver. The child is not the one delivering the gospel per se, but it is the Holy Spirit, which is in him. Brotherhood therefore, is the greatest place one could ever imagine. It is the embodiment of everything good. It incorporates the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit and the children of God. There is no segregation and claims in this Kingdom.
Whoever segregates must have problems, for this single act has made him to be declared a wanted person by the angels of God. I have been warning you that, no one should sin in this Kingdom, for whoever sins here, has sinned against his brother, sister and parents. When one fornicates, say with a brother, she has fornicated with her brother or her Father. Whatever one does to another in this Kingdom, he is invariably doing it to himself. Read the golden text again:

"Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free, but Christ is all, and in all".
This extract has clarified the whole issue. Many people, even in this Kingdom claim ownership of everything. Some claim that the Kingdom of God has now come for the blacks. Others claim that women have been liberated, and so on. Who told them these? Have they not read the above text to their claims? In the Kingdom of God, everybody is the same. Christ is the head of every plane, people and what have you. He is in charge of everything created by God. He is all in all.
Jesus is just a name. The Son of God is also a simple title, but the most important thing is to be called Christ. He is at the helm of all affairs. He is the one healing all the infirmities in the world. Christ is the final and the supreme authority in the hierarchy of rulership. He is the Teacher, Lord, God and the one in control of heaven and earth. So, when you go contrary to the tenets of this Kingdom, I sympathise with you.

This is the highest place where you can receive all knowledge. You cannot for instance, receive this type of teaching in any of the mundane universities.
The spirit, sand, mud, tree, rain, air and every other phenomena created by God is Christ. Take the Biakpan healing water as an example. The healing force in that water is nothing but Christ. Even the sand found there is Christ. If you believe in it as Christ, it acts accordingly. If a person asks you, whether you are the Christ, tell him that you are His witness. Testify to the works that you have seen Him do in this era. Tell them that, even the words are Christ and that, as you are speaking to them, they have witnessed Him. Note that, this is the time for Him to be glorified, even as He glorified His Father. So, you have to glorify Christ and reveal Him to the world. Do not tell people that you are the Christ, for you are not the Christ. Just believe that after your baptism, Christ had come into your soul. As such, He takes care of you in all that you may strive to accomplish. In other words, Christ is the accomplishing force in whatever task you embark on. You are only a witness to all the things He has done in the world.
Let people know that Christ lives in you. Let them know that when they see you, they have seen Christ, for He is even the speech, which you utter. In this Kingdom for instance, it is not I that is doing the mighty works witnessed here, but Christ, all the works done in the entire world are done by Christ. Consider the testimony of one sister who said that, she was suffering from harmorrhage, but immediately after drinking a cup of water from the altar, she was made whole. Was this woman drinking ordinary water? The answer is simple. She was drinking Christ. This is the time to glorify Christ. Do not attribute the glory of Christ to any man. He is the only one that should be glorified.
There is one spiritual song, which says, "I was that stone which David used in killing Goliath". What type of stone do you think it really was? It was Christ. The rod, which Moses used in Egypt, was also the Christ. This explains why it is said that, Christ exists in everything. You are therefore, advised in your own interest, to call upon Him whenever you need His assistance. He is ever ready to help those who believe in Him. But when He helps you, He must be glorified. Christ and God are inseparable. The two are invariably talking about the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, the Trinity God. Similarly man and God are of the same entity. Wherever you find man, God is there and wherever man is found, God too is there.

May God bless his holy words. Amen.
