"For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh".
2nd Lesson: Galatians 5: 22-23
"But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is no law".

"For as many as are led by the spirit of God, they are sons of God".
The work of flesh
Brethren, the gospel will be short and brief because the Holy Spirit has completed His work. What you are going to hear shall be like planting on a piece of land, which had been cleared and the thrash burnt. You are witnesses to the fact that the flesh does not possess love, truth, patience and mercy and cannot teach men these virtues. And whenever the elementary spirit of this world enters into your body, you will be taught how to drink, fornicate, steal, and indulge in the preparation of concoction and how to commit murder. A person who does this thing is lying against the truth. That sort of spirit is not from God but from the flesh.
It is very simple to differentiate between the man who walks in the flesh and the one who walks in the spirit. And this gospel will enable you to know those who are the real children of God. You will find somebody, who will reply that the Holy Spirit is inborn in him, if you care to ask. But by his side you will see snuffbox, around him are charms, cigarette is part of him, fornication is his daily practice. Inspite of these, he will tell you that he was born with the Holy Spirit.
Whoever drinks is not of the spirit and all those who take snuff do not walk in the spirit but in the flesh. All those who are afraid of the things of this life and they that doubt do not walk in the spirit. All those who are preoccupied with the thought of the things of this earth, how to get money, cars, wife, become a chief are not directed by the Holy Spirit but by the flesh. All those who discriminate support party spirit and ethnicity are in flesh and not led by the spirit. Whoever commits sin possesses not the spirit of God in him but walks in the flesh. Possessing the spirit of God does not consist in shaking of head in the frenzy of spiritual ecstasy. Rather, what is read to you from the texts, make up the qualities of a child of God. All those who see witches, apparition, water spirits, and how mermaids are disturbing somebody, are carnally minded. They do not walk in the spirit of God. The spirit of God does not lead all those who see visions of how God directs that another person be married to them, or how somebody has been intimate with another man’s wife, or how the other person has committed fornication.
Brethren do not be deceived. It had been said that in the end, diversities of spirits shall appear and shall confuse many. This confirms the acts of those whose visions and prophesies are never fulfilled. Whoever prophesies and it does not manifest accordingly does not do so with the spirit of God, and wherever distinction is created between male and female it is carnal and not of the spirit. Wherever a mother of twins or triplet is not tolerated, know that the spirit of God is not there. Were twins, triplets, quadruplets to be evil, Eve, our first mother would not have given birth to twins. When somebody gives birth to twins, people will say that such a thing is alien to their families. Now, was Eve who gave birth to twins not of your family? What of Rebecca who gave birth to Esau and Jacob, the twins? Was she not of your family? God has proclaimed that you should go and multiply and replenish the earth. So, one person can give birth to three, four, or five children at the same time. In the Republic of Cameroon, it was reported that one man gave birth to seven children and all of them grew up to become professionals in the fields of law, engineering, medicine etc.
You should therefore, realise that any spirit that debars you from interacting with a mother of twins or triplets is carnal. And every spirit that so confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God.
You are Gods, no Matter Your Condition
Any spirit which tells you that somebody will bolt from the blues and crash-land on the ground like an eaglet is not of God but carnal and demonic. Why the Jews crucified our Lord Jesus Christ was that He being man claimed He was the Son of God. And they killed Him because they had not the spirit of God in them. Up till today, the Jews still assert that God has no child. This assertion implies that there is no God, for if God has no child, who is your father? All such disputes and confusions which trouble the world stem from the flesh. There are some people here whose study of the evolutionary process of man makes them believe that there is no God and that life started from the sea bed creatures, to reptiles, to the present Homo Sapiens. Go to the universities; listen to scientists and many others you will realise that no one believes in God. That is why you behave unseemingly. It is written in your law that you are gods, the children of the Most High God but you shall die like men. If you are a god, then dying like men will not stop you from being a god. If you are a Son of God and die, this does not obviate the fact that you are a child of God. If you are a god and you get sick, it does not mean that you are no longer a god. Because you are sick, if you are a god and are disgraced or are hungry, or in lack, it does not mean that those things would not have come to you were you not to be a god. Have you not seen what happens in the world with God Almighty?
In the beginning God said let us make man in our own image, after our likeness. What is the meaning of making man in our own image? This means that man should look like God. When you argue that God is not man, what then is God? Is He a tree? Were God not man, how would He have made man in this form which according to Him is His own image? Now you argue that man is not God. If man is not God, what is man? What is God? Is He not man? God put everything under man’s care that he should superintend over fishes, animals, birds and every other thing. He also ordered man to name all creatures. Now, the flesh has deceived you into believing that man is not God. If man is not God, what is man? Let us assume that man is not God, but the Son of God. But you argue that man is not a child of God. What then is man, when you say that man is neither God nor a Son of God, but believing in our Lord Jesus Christ what was he?
The birth of our Lord Jesus Christ was to confound all wisdom. Mary was conceived for nine months, after which Jesus was delivered and people from east and west paid obeisance to Him. Argue that such birth did not take place. If you will argue that our Lord Jesus Christ is the Child of God, whose child are you? This issue leads to yet another. Mary gave birth to Jesus the Christ as her first child, He was a Son of God, and she also gave birth to others, the sons of men. We have our support from the Bible that those who are born of the flesh are carnal and those born of the spirit are spiritual. Our Lord Jesus Christ was born of the spirit and others were carnal. Can you not realise that man is of two categories? Amongst us, there are the sons of God and the sons of men. Now that you argue that God has just a son, does it mean that He ended His action by begetting only our Lord Jesus Christ? Has God not begotten any other person despite the teeming population of the inhabitants of the world? Can you say that our Lord Jesus Christ was the first and last child of God?
Secondly, do you believe that since after the ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, He is still in the atmosphere? Did you not read that after three days He resurrected and showed Himself to the people? And when the disciples were terrified He told them: "Behold My hands and My feet, that it is Myself: handle Me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see Me have". While they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, He said unto them, have ye here any meat, and they gave Him a piece of boiled fish, and of honey comb. And He took it and did eat before them.
Brotherhood is Not of the Flesh (BCS)
All the confusion and doubt that abound in the world comes from the flesh. That is the spirit of Lucifer who did promise to trouble the world. We in Brotherhood rejoice in our Lord Jesus Christ, and have confidence in the spirit. That is why, those who are ignorant of what Brotherhood is, call it a new church. But it is the Kingdom of God. We do not worship carnality. We do not rejoice in any other thing apart from our Lord Jesus Christ. We do not live according to the dictates of the flesh but by the directives of the spirit.
Also we do not look or see things carnally, neither do we hear with the carnal ears, we do all things in the spirit. We know no man through the flesh but through the spirit. We do not rejoice in money, or size, or position and whether you are a minister, lawyer, doctor or a chief, we rejoice in the spirit. Our boldness and happiness is in our Lord Jesus Christ because He came, died, resurrected and He is now living to be glorified.
His reign has no beginning and no end. He is our captain. He reigns in heaven and on earth, in the water and in our body. In all places, He reigns though the world knows Him not, we have seen and known Him. We do not boast, in the money He gives us. We do not boast, in the life He gives us. We do not boast in the wisdom, He gives us. We rejoice in Him because He will not fail us forever. As He had promised that "when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to Myself," His promise is fulfilled in us today. He said, "I will not leave you comfortless, I will come unto you". He has come unto us.
None of us here boasts of what we have. We do not even rejoice in our carnal father or any other thing. Our happiness is in Christ Jesus, because He is the conqueror and our armor bearer. Many people profess that they are Christ’s, or Jesus, or spirit, but they do not preach about Him, neither do they boast in Him. If you boast in our Lord Jesus Christ, why do you not do so in the spirit? If you are walking in the spirit, why do you not boast in our Lord Jesus Christ? Brethren, I do not want to belabour you, let our first lesson be read:
FIRST LESSON: PHILIPPIANS 3: 3
"For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh".
Rejoice in Our Lord Jesus Christ
Brethren, have you heard the Scripture? Why you have problems is that you do not rejoice in our Lord Jesus Christ and many of you have no confidence in the spirit. Earthly things are like the dew, which is transitory, but our Lord Jesus Christ abides forever. Do not put your hope in man, or money, or any of the earthly things. But, let your hope, faith, happiness and confidence be in our Lord Jesus Christ for He will not fail you. People are investigating the circumstances surrounding the birth of the Leader and the sort of food He eats. They are researching into His kind of apparel, all in a bid to discover the source of His power. These persons are to be greatly pitied. I hide nothing from you and I have been telling you that I am powerless and none existing. But our Lord Jesus Christ had said that "all power in heaven and on earth had been handed over to Me. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you" It is on this promise that I operate.
He said, whoever believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me. At times He would say I, and the Father are one. Do you not realise that whoever believes in the Son believes in the Father, whoever rejects the Son has not the Father. As many as believe in our Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, the same has right to be called the children of God. All those who have confidence in the spirit testify that our Lord Jesus Christ is here. He is doing the work; He is the Master, the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings. He is in heaven, on earth and in us.
He died once for the sake of our sins. From thence lives He a life of righteousness forever. It is not expected that any other person should die. It is not given that those who believe in Him should die. Those who believe in Him must have eternal life. And it is not expected that any one should declare himself to be Jesus or Christ, or Jehovah or God.
Do we need many Jesus? Is the one we have not sufficient? It is not also expected that anyone should gaze at the sky. What do you expect from the sky? The scripture says, truly I say unto you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do, greater works than this shall he do. If you believe in Him and do greater works, what else do you expect of Him in the sky?
People initiate into many secret societies as well as various forms of diabologies in order to be saved. But instead of getting salvation, disaster still befalls them. And our Lord Jesus Christ said, "whoever believes and is baptised shall be saved, but whoever is not baptised shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe. In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover". It is as simple as that by coming out of the water of baptism, these signs follow you. Is there any of you who is not followed by these signs? It is this issue that baffles all the inhabitants of the world and that is why they keep asking the source of power in Brotherhood? But of a truth, I tell you the moment you believe and are baptized; these signs shall follow you. You are not charged any money; neither are you given any other conditionally.
What do you think God is? God is the Word, and what is the Word? The Word is Christ. What is Christ? Christ is Spirit. What is Spirit? Spirit is Truth, Love, Faith, Peace, Holiness, Humility, Temperance, Meekness, Power and Joy. He is all and in all. Tell Me what your problem is? Have you not seen that Spirit? Has it not come? It is today that you are going to know the fruits of the Spirit. So that those who claim to possess the spirit will know their stand. Church denominations will claim they do not worship the spirit since they are orthodox churches, believing in the power of the Holy Spirit. It is today that you will know which is a spiritual church.
The First Gentile
Have you ever heard that our Lord Jesus Christ beat drums, burn incense or light candles? Right from Peter, to whom this ministry was handed, to Paul and others who served in the ministry, have you heard any of them beat drum, burn incense or used perfumery or other abominable acts you take delight in doing in the name of spiritualism. Which spirit is that? When our Lord Jesus Christ had not yet bestowed the spirit on His disciples, He told them not to enter into the way of the Samaritans but to go to the lost sheep of Israel. That is to say, without the Holy Spirit the world would perish. Because when our Lord Jesus Christ lived in flesh, He had limited functions. He directed the disciples to the Israelites only. If they asked in a house and there was an Israelite, they would attend to, without which they would leave. It is exactly what the church denominations are doing. When they get to a group of people, they will ask if members of their churches are there. In the hospital they will ask if their member is there. Such practices are carnal and not spiritual.
When our Lord Jesus Christ had bestowed the spirit on His disciples, Cornelius had a dream, and an angel told him that God had heard his prayer. The angel told him to send somebody to Joppa to meet one Peter who lodged with Simon the tanner, and that Peter would tell him what to do. It was not the spirit directing Cornelius but an angel. Cornelius, the centurion sent three of his men to Peter. Before the arrival of the three, the spirit had already informed Peter that three people were waiting outside for him.
Ever before the messengers left to their destination, Peter saw in a trance how forfeited animals descended and he was told to kill and eat. But he refused on the excuse that he had never eaten anything common or unclean. This was done thrice, and the vessel was carried up. The voice told him, what God hath cleansed, call not thou common. This vision really disturbed him; and as he was thinking over it, the three men from Cornelius arrived, the same spirit told him, "Behold, three men seek thee and he went out and saw the three men from Cornelius, who told him their mission. These men were Gentiles. Remember that our Lord Jesus Christ had told them not to enter the way of the Gentiles but these were Gentiles before him. The situation worried Peter but the Spirit told him to follow them. Since he walked in the spirit, he had to obey the dictate of the Spirit. Peter obeyed the spirit and went to Cornelius. On seeing Peter, Cornelius fell down at his feet, and worshipped him. But Peter took him up, saying, stand up; myself also am a man. Peter told him you know that it is unlawful for a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation. But God hath shewed me that I should call no man common or unclean, therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for; I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me? Cornelius narrated the preceding events that led to it and Peter opened his mouth and told them about our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of all. Those who were present received the Holy Spirit. That was the first time in human history the word of God was extended beyond the Jews. Cornelius was the first Gentile God revealed Himself to. Without the Holy Spirit, how would the Word of God spread to other nations?
Note that when the twelve disciples walked with our Lord Jesus Christ, they were never told to enter into the way of the Samaritans or of the Gentiles. So when the other eleven heard that Peter had gone to the Gentiles with the gospel, they accused Peter of bringing confusion. But when they gathered, he told them of his vision and what followed, they were satisfied. That is why it is said that whoever walks in the spirit does not err. If the spirit tells you to go to Babangida, or Queen Elizabeth, and inform him or her of these things, go straight. By doing that there is no mistake and no one can challenge you.
The Holy Spirit is Love
Brethren, our confidence is in the Spirit. Wherever the Spirit directs you, go forth. If the spirit tells you to go and worship in the Roman Catholic Church, do so. If you are told to go to the Presbyterian, or Amorc, or any place for that matter, do not hesitate. There is no discrimination in this Kingdom. Listen and hearken to the Spirit, in whatever you are directed. The Spirit does not create division. With Him there is neither male nor female, young or old. We have no problems with the Moslems, members of the Ogboni, Christians. We have no trouble with ghosts, man, obon, robbers and thieves. What is required of us is to listen to the spirit in whatever we are told to do. We have no trouble with whites, or blacks. Since our confidence is in the spirit, wherever you are sent, go there because the Holy Spirit has no Bethel. Remember that when Saul was to go to Damascus to arrest the followers of our Lord Jesus Christ, he was authorised by the high priest to arrest and jail anyone who called on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. On his way, light shone round about him from heaven, and the voice of the Lord called on him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said who art thou Lord? And the voice said; I am Jesus whom thou persecute. Saul was struck blind and for three days he did not see. It was the same Jesus who told him to go to one Ananias. The same Jesus revealed to Ananias about Saul. This shows to you that the spirit is that of love. He told Ananias to go and pray for Saul that Saul may receive his sight. Can you see the situation?
On learning the order, Ananias answered. Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem. And here he hath authority from the chief Priests to bind all that call on thy name. But the Lord said unto him: Go thy way, for he is a chosen vessel unto Me, to bear My name before the Gentiles and kings, and the children of Israel. Ananias did not argue but went his way because he was in the spirit. When he arrived there, he placed his hands on him and said, Brother Saul, "the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou carest, hath sent me, thou mayest receive they sight, and be filled with the Holy Spirit". And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scale; and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptised. Such is the work of the Spirit. You do not behave anyhow you like. It is our duty to do this work. If we walk in the Spirit, there will be neither quarreling, nor fighting, nor trouble, nor conflict but love will be found everywhere.
2ND LESSON: GALATIANS 5: 22-23
"But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is no law".
Brethren, have you heard the Scripture? He sent Cornelius to go to Peter and be told what to do. Peter went to him as was also directed. Did Peter beat up Cornelius, or quarrel, or curse or abuse him? He went and saved him, and converted Cornelius to become a Christian. He told Ananias to go and pray for a man called Saul that he may receive his sight. When Ananias went to Saul, did he beat, curse or extort Saul? In the same manner, "if the Father directs you to go to a certain brother’s house, or to Lagos, and other places, it is our duty to obey, and serve whoever is concerned with love. It is the work of grace, mercy, truth, and patience, which has nothing to do with quarreling, murder, or snatching somebody’s wife or husband.
Obey the Directive of the Holy Spirit
We have no particular Bethel since our functional Bethel is the Holy Spirit. Thus, the issue of posing as an elder or prophet in charge of the Bethel does not arise. Your duty is to listen to the spirit and do what it tells you. Whoever walks in the spirit is a child of God, but whoever walks in flesh is of Satan. As at now, members of WAI Brigade had come to help maintain order in the premises, but it is reported that members of the Youth Fellowship oppose them. Are you the only owner of these premises? Have they come to kill? They have merely come to help guard the place. Anybody can come and join hands with you in the service, as long as the Spirit of God directs them. As I am, if somebody comes to Me and say that he is going to preach, I will merely thank the Father and get down for him, knowing that it will give Me vacation. Is it not one and the same thing?
Can you now realise that there is no law here? The Father had directed all of you, ordained ones, elders, Christ Servants, Christ Students, and others to guard the premises. If you cannot do the work, and the Holy Spirit mobilizes another group of people elsewhere to come and do it, why do you resist them? On this note, we are not under law but our confidence is in the Holy Spirit. If the Spirit directs you, obey accordingly. It is the Father who sends you and you are not under any law. Except in a situation where somebody tells you that what he does is a personal opinion. In that case, do not obey. But whatever the spirit tells you, even when somebody comes to you and say that the Father sends him to come and pray for you, kneel down and receive the prayer because it is for your own good.
Now I will tell you a short story. On the 15th of November 1962 two persons called Mandus and Conrad came to Calabar to heal people. Conrad was Mandus’ son. Posters appeared throughout this town that they were coming to do wonderful healing. Certain people arranged for their coming. On arrival at Calabar, they came to perform their healing in one of the school rooms, of 34, Ambo Street, Calabar. There was wide publicity for people to turn up and witness the healing exercise. While I was still keeping My calm, the Holy Spirit asked what I was waiting for? He asked whether Conrad’s action was to imply that God was not to be found in this part of the world. And finally, He directed Me to go and preach the gospel to him so that he will know that he came to sit on top of God.
Brethren, it was wonderful. Though the gospel the Father gave was very short, it was efficacious as well as inspiring. And at the end of it, Conrad was invited to perform but he declared, "it is finished". He was reluctant to even say a word. It was after much persuasion that he stood up and made a short speech. Throughout his speech, he was preaching the Father. Some of you, who were present, could testify about the day. All he did was to testify about the Father. Till today, he is a witness unto Me. Those who spearheaded the visit, one Mr. Ekpenyong, Akwaowo and Nwabasi later complained that I disgraced them. But I told them that I did not disgrace them and that the
Holy Spirit was at work.
The Holy Spirit has no Beginning and no Ending
Brethren that is why I told you that Brotherhood has neither a beginning nor an end, because it is the Holy Spirit who directs everything. If the Holy Spirit has a beginning, know that Brotherhood has a beginning. When the world was void and without form, was the Holy Spirit not in existence? He was in existence and moved upon the face of waters. It is recorded in Genesis 1: 1-2, that when the world was not, the Holy Spirit was. Therefore, we have confidence in him. Our boast is in Him. If He tells you to move, do so. Even the person you claim is your worst enemy, if the Holy Spirit tells you to go to his house and greet him, do so and there will be no problem because by so doing you are taking peace to him.
You will then see that he has brought love to us. He has brought truth, peace, humility, joy and all good things to us. No evil resides with the Holy Spirit neither has He ever committed any sin. Those who walk in the flesh are the trouble -makers. But all those who walk in the spirit are the children of God. Even if the Spirit tells you to go and pray for somebody, or give him vision, or administer treatment to him, or do any other thing you will argue that you would not go in order that you may not cause trouble. You will not cause any trouble as long as the Holy Spirit sends you.
Of a truth, the Holy Spirit is not a troublemaker. While we are singing, if you find somebody who begins to cry in his supposed spiritual ecstasy, that is not the Holy Spirit at work. Such cries are from the anti-Christ. It is a truism that without Brotherhood, people will not believe in the existence of the Holy Spirit. This is so because the operation of others is far from that of the Holy Spirit. It is the evil one at work. Therefore, all such groups that call themselves spiritual churches are not what they profess to be. This is the only place where the Holy Spirit is at work. There is no person who comes here and is not satisfied, or does not see the glory of God.
When somebody tells you that the spirit directs that the two of you be married, note that it is not the spirit of God. If somebody tells you that the spirit directs that you should give forty naira feast, depart from such a person because he is simply hungry. Whoever tells you that you are bewitched, and that your house had been sold to witches and wizards, be patient with him because it is the flesh and not the Spirit of God. If somebody comes to tell you that the Spirit has said that you are a wizard, be patient with him, because that is the flesh and not the spirit of God. Also, if he ask you to love another man’s wife, hammering on that continuously, note that it is not the spirit of God but that of the troublemaker.
Brethren, the situation is now clear. When you go to scatter somebody’s family and set it ablaze, you will claim it is the Holy Spirit. Which spirit do you refer to? You tell somebody that the Holy Spirit says that if he does not do certain thing he will die. That message is not from the Holy Spirit because He cannot wish any person death. The Holy Spirit is life, He is death, He brings into existence that which had not been, and to cease that which existed. If it is the Holy Spirit, He will tell you that life has been bestowed on you from now on. If He sees you in a deplorable situation, he will tell you that there is no death for you, and it will materialize accordingly. If you were a harlot, he will tell you, henceforth, the Father has changed you, and has given you the Holy Spirit. This is all he will say rather than saying that such nonsensical thing as, you are a thief, your husband is in love with another woman, let me go and show you, or your wife has messed up. What sort of spirit is that supposed to be? You also say your wife charms you, or your husband is plotting to kill you, that is not the Holy Spirit of God. Do not listen to such spirit because it is carnal and demonic.
You, who told others, "God said inspite of all the gospels preached to you, you do not repent, I have forsaken you". Which God sent you? Since your utterances are nonsensical, you should shut your mouth. When you go to prayer houses and healing homes, you will hear much of such things. That is why I have established those places for you to attend since you love delusion. At midnight they will arrange for a holy wash. They will wash your heads, ears and other parts of the body. They will recommend all sorts of things because that is where they have the opportunity to do whatever they like. Continue in your arts if it is beneficial.
And those of you, who go about urging others to pay tithe, are you made tithe-collectors for God? Are you sent on a special mission? Is tithe a human being affair? It is God’s business, and affects every person. Thus, who-ever wish can pay. But your visions "send your tithe so that your ailment will be healed". Is that right? Do you mean that God is poor? There is no difference between the spirit many of you are using here and the one in the world. It is the same worldly spirit that you operate with. That is why before Me you can not say those things. All the visioners here are afraid to give visions before Me. If ever they give, they dance around the question. When they come to you, they will whisper to your ears that they have some revelations about you, and would love to say them privately. The interpreter, Apostle Fabian Obot, is My witness. He was once given a fake vision, which, by now, would have made him a good-for-nothing. It was while he was on vacation during his days in the university that he was warned not to return to the university that if he disobeyed, he would be returned dead. When he ran to Me, I hushed him to return to school. He went back and completed his course and nothing did happen.
This war is spiritual. I am fighting with principalities, which resides in you. Such visioners do not come here during the Pentecostal period; rather, they go from house to house in the suburbs to deceive people. If you do not have money now, you will blame it on a member who has taken you to a native doctor. Your mind would be troubled and the result would be fighting in the Bethel. All of you have accused each other of witchery. The Holy Spirit does not see evil. He does not see apparition. He does not see witches. He does not see juju. He does not see any evildoer. There is no female with him and He does not see death. He sees no useless thing. Since he is good, He always sees goodness. To him all things are good. Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself said I use the Holy Spirit of God to cast away the evil spirit in you. As one of our brothers said if one possesses the evil spirit, I use the Holy Spirit to drive out the evil spirit in you. It is for these reasons that no matter the sort of spirit a person possesses, when he comes here, he will be stripped and clothed with the Holy Spirit. That constitutes our main duty.
It is said, come unto me all ye that labour and are heavily laden and I will give you rest. Go and bring any native doctor, or any person you think is an evil doer. Bring him here and see if he will not change instantly. After knowing this, you still come to tell Me that somebody is a wizard or evil or is fearful. If you are a fearful person, you will no longer fear. No matter what you are, you would turn a new leaf. If you are poor, you will no longer be poor. If you are sickly, your sickness will be cured. If you are blind, you will receive your sight.
You have heard the testimony of the Enyi 1 of Aba, Brother Ikonne. He climbed to a great height in the Ogboni society and was a member of the Rosicrucian Order. He initiated into various secret societies and also indulged in the preparation of concoctions. With his position, he had money but could not even sleep. He was always sacrificing for one reason or the other. He is now here. All the things he used to do he has abandoned. Have you not seen him now? He is free and free for ever. Let our golden text be read:
GOLDEN TEXT: ROMANS 8: 14
"For as many as are led by the spirit of God, they are sons of God".
Have you heard the Scriptures? If the Holy Spirit leads you, you will not sin. You will be preoccupied with helping, consoling, comforting, making peace, and transforming people. These are the characteristics of one who possesses the Holy Spirit. This is the work many people are doing. Thousands and one are doing this work. You may not know a place in Lagos but if God sends you there, you have to go and do the work. Our duty is to be alert; to do whatever the spirit tells us. Do not initiate anything by yourself. Do not walk in the flesh any longer. Do you believe that God can tell somebody who has not one naira in the house, to pay tithe of N20.00? Can God do such a thing when He knows that the person has no money? Do you believe that God can demand N40.00 from you to conduct feast after praying for you? Will you say that God is hungry? God cannot do such a thing. Right now many people have sold their house furniture, some have even mortgaged certain properties of theirs for the sake of feast and other things. I have not collected such monies from you. You are deceiving one another. Also many people have deserted their homes and have found abode in Bethels because they were told that certain persons have sold their premises to witches, who are after their life. You are told to build a house for them. If they demand cars, in what does the Holy Spirit drive? When your search for a husband has proved abortive, on seeing a handsome man, you will tell him, the Father says, "we should get married". There is no marriage in spirit. Marriage is an earthly affair.
I am telling you all this so that you may know the difference between what obtains in spirit and in flesh. The deceit in Brotherhood is minimal. If you go to the spiritual churches, you would be bamboozled. You will be stripped of all your possessions to meet up their demands and your wife and children will be taken from you in addition.
Brethren, I do not want to be tedious unto you. A stroke of the cane is sufficient unto the wise. He who has ears let them hear. May God Bless His Holy Words. Amen.
THANK YOU GOOD FATHER
