EVERLASTING BIBLE CLASS DELIVERED BY
THE HOLY FATHER LEADER OLUMBA OLUMBA OBU
"BROTHERHOOD - THE CENTRE OF REFORMATION"
TEXT: ST MATTHEW 15: 1 - END.
Brethren, I deliberately conduct the Bible Class so that no person can fool you as far as the scripture is concerned. For some of you, it is your mouth that kills you. When you are asked where did you study the Bible, you say, I have never studied the scripture.
But I want to tell you that, whoever attends the Bible Class for a day is better than a person who has studied in a seminary for seven years. One doctor, back from overseas studies, gave a testimony that he had remained in Amorc and other mystical schools for many years, but had never heard the type of teachings, he received in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star for a day.
When you are asked where you studied the scriptures, you tell them, you have not gone to the seminary. During the Pentecostal held three times a year, you are taught the scriptures, what of the daily teachings and the Bible Class I teach you always?
THE MISSION OF ADAM, ENOCH, MOSES ELIJAH, JOHN AND CHRIST ON EARTH:
1 TIMOTHY 4: 13
"Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine."
Now the Holy Bible is the judgement book, that will be used in judging the whole world. When you come into the Bible Class you are given various lessons so that you begin to know the truth to enable you to overcome the people of the world. I want to ask you one question: What was the main purpose of Adam’s coming into the world, what was his mission? What did Enoch come to do in the world? Why we fail is the fact that we do not appreciate that any individual who comes into the world, has been given an assignment by God. What of Moses? What was his duty on earth? Or would you say that John did the same type of work as Moses or was he given another assignment? Why did John come? Or was it exactly the same duty performed by Elijah? What about Christ, did He do the same work done by John? Now what does the Holy Spirit come to do, will the work of the Holy Spirit be the same work as Jesus Christ did? Have you heard what Our Lord Jesus Christ said in:
St. John 14: 12
"Verily, verily I say unto you. He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father."
What do you understand by this statement? What was the assignment of Our Lord Jesus Christ and what is the work greater than the work of Our Lord Jesus Christ? Many people say Jesus had done the work nobody else had done. What did He do? Why did He say, whosoever believes in Me will do greater work than Himself and what did John say?
St. Matthew 3: 11-12
"I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire.
Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge His floor, and gather his wheat into the garner, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire".
What did John the Baptist say about Jesus Christ our Lord? He did not wear cloth. Brethren, do you realise that each of them had his own assignment. Our Lord Jesus Christ knew that there are different duties assigned to different people. That was why He said that He who believes in Him, will do greater work than Himself.
ADAM THE HOUSE OF GOD
Adam was the house, which God erected for Himself. He was a farm planted by God. Brethren if one goes into the forest to settle, the first thing he will do is to erect a house in which he will dwell. And so Adam was the house of God. Adam did nothing than building the house for God whether the house is strong or not it was a house of God. All mankind, are the houses of God, whether it is a thatch house or a permanent building. Therefore, you cannot build any other house than what Adam had built for God to dwell in and have dominion over all God’s creation.
THE SPECIFIC ASSIGNMENT OF ENOCH
What was the duty of Enoch? He came for an inspection to ensure whether things were orderly kept in their respective positions as God ordained them. Enoch in short was an inspector. When he came and inspected the position of things he discovered that things were not in order. He submitted his findings to God. That is why you are told that God regretted having created man in His own image. "And it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and grieved him at his heart." Enoch submitted his final report that, sin dominated mankind. And God had no other alternative than to take a decision to destroy mankind and the world. What was the reason for the coming of Noah?
THE ASSIGNMENT OF NOAH:
Noah came to serve the remanent of the children of God. He came and preached repentance to the people of his generation for one hundred and twenty years but they hardened their hearts and minds. They paid deaf ears to his preaching but rather turned and ridiculed him as it happens in this our generation.
When the time for the destruction of the disobedient ones came, he collected all God’s creation - male and female into the ark in pairs and eight persons who were members of His family. The rest were destroyed by the great flood. This our present generation is that of Adam because the eight who were saved in the Ark multiplied and replenished the earth. Therefore it is not correct for a person to assume that the generation of Adam were destroyed in the flood. The rainbow we have on the sky was the covenant God entered with mankind that He will never destroy the world again with flood, no matter how sinful the world might be.
ASSIGNMENT OF MELCHIZEDEC
After the world of Noah was destroyed by flood, Melchizedec came and entered into a covenant with God never to destroy the world again with flood. The main duty of Melchizedec was to bless the people who were saved from the flood, and to set all things in order because despite the flood, mankind would still continue in sin. He had a duty to teach and demonstrate righteousness, peace, love, forgiveness, endurance and all the other virtues of God to them. When people became defiled due to sinfulness he would bless them and reconciled them to God. It was in this way he blessed the patriarch Abraham. In return, Abraham gave to the royal priest a tenth of all booty taken. Giving the tenth was a practical acknowledgment of the divine priesthood of Melchizedec, for the tenth was, according to the general custom, the offering presents to deity. He had the duty to collect tithe because he is God Almighty that became flesh and dwell among them, in that generation even though they did not recognise Him, except Abraham alone. Brethren, since Melchizedec had undertaken all these assignments, what was the mission of Moses on earth?
ASSIGNMENT OF MOSES
Jehovah God and His Christ told Abraham that his seed will sojourn in a strange land and will remain in bondage for 400 years and after that, God will judge the nation that enslaved them.
Acts 7: 6-7
"And God spake on this wise, that his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them to bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years; And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said God: and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place."
Moses came to redeem the children of Israel from the land of bondage according to the promise of God. After that God promised to judge the nation that enslaved them. Before the birth of Moses, the children of Israel lived in Egypt for 320 years, and in his 80th year, he liberated the
Israelites from bondage of Egypt. That was his assignment and he later disappeared on his way to the promised land. Without the coming of Moses, who would have delivered the Israelites after they had lived in Egypt for 420 years.
Pharaoh was a King, and with His army and commanders enslaved the Israelites. What instrument did Moses employ to redeem the Israelites from bondage? Was it gun, machete or any physical weapon? He did not quarrel with Pharaoh but the Israelites were delivered from slavery. Who was Moses in the first place to have had the courage to appear before Pharaoh and demand for the deliverance of the Israelites? Moses was God, manifested in another form to reveal his power and glory.
ROMANS 9: 17
"For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth."
Moses approached Pharaoh with His crook staff only and performed all the wonders in Egypt.
GOD KILLS AND KEEPS ALIVE
Many people do not know that it is only God who kills and keeps alive. Moses performed all the wonders and signs in Egypt and yet God hardened the heart of Pharaoh. God told Moses to order the Israelites to celebrate the feast of the Passover. After slaughtering a lamb, they should use blood and place a mark on the two side posts and on the upper part of the houses. This blood mark will be a token unto you. God promised that when He saw the blood mark, He would pass over their houses but would smite the Egyptians who do not have these marks of "Passover". That night, while the Israelites had the feast, God sent an Angel of death to kill all the first born in the land of Egypt, from the first born of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the first born of the captives and all the first born cattle.
In the morning when they woke up, all the first born in Egypt were dead. Now since you claim that God does not kill, I ask you who killed all the first born in Egypt? Was it juju, Satan or Lucifer? Just as the worldly governments have Army, Navy, Airforce and the Police so in heaven, there are armed forces. God has different Angels for different operations. Some are soldiers, others are police, others are warders. Since God promised to judge the nation that will enslave the seeds of Abraham, God entered into the heart of Pharaoh and urged him and his armies to pursue the Israelites after they had left Egypt. As a result of the pursuit, all his army perished in the Red Sea. Brethren, until God entered into you and do everything will you know? You will always attribute the actions of God to witchcraft, mermaid, ghost, Lucifer, Satan and all other elementary spirits. Moses, therefore, executed the wonderful deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt, gave them the commandments and set them on their course to Caanan.
THE MISSION OF ELIJAH
Elijah was to come to punish all those who did not abide by the commandments and ordinances of God, particularly idolaters. He did not come to preach or to baptise but only to destroy the worshippers of Baal.
ST. LUKE 9: 52-56
"And sent messengers before his face, and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him; And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem". And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of; For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village."
Brethren, it is the same God performing His assignment through different persons. Have you not read in the scriptures that Elijah was a destroyer? You who continue to argue that God is love and so He cannot kill, that it is only satan who kills, can you notice what God did in those days? Who sent fire from Heaven to destroy 400 - 500 Baal worshippers? Elijah came to reveal to that generation that God is Alpha and Omega therefore He is the only power to kill and to keep alive and that all those who will not submit to His government would be destroyed equally like Baal worshippers. When the disciples of Our Lord Jesus Christ came and demanded that He should command fire to consume the Samaritans who did not believe in Him, He told them such was not His assignment.
THE MISSION OF JOHN THE BAPTIST
Why does the scripture say that John will come in the spirit of Elijah?
ST. LUKE 1: 17
"And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."
He came and destroyed the prophet of baal, why was it necessary that His spirit should come back in the person of John the Baptist.
MALACHI 4: 5-6
"Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord; And He shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children and the children to their father, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."
Elijah came back as John the Baptist. This time, he came to accomplish another assignment. He came to prepare the hearts and minds of the children of men to accept Our Lord Jesus Christ. He preached repentance and purification. Without him nobody would have accepted or believed in the deity of Christ. He ate only locust, honey and wore animals skin. Peter, John, James and many disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ were His disciples.
He spent most of His days in the wilderness fasting and praying. That is why the scriptures says, "Blesseth are the pure in heart for they shall see God." He taught people purity of hearts and mind so that they would see and recognise the long expected Messiah.
THE MISSION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
His assignment was to shed His precious blood for the remission of sins. That is why the scriptures say, "Without the shedding of blood, there will be no forgiveness of sins. The house God built in Adam was defiled with sins. That was why Christ came to use His holy blood, to clear the debris from the demolished building of Adam, and rebuild it so that the Holy Spirit might dwell in it. Before the advent of Christ, God had no dwelling place. That was why He said "foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests but the son of man has no place to lay his head." The greatest of all the assignment so far was that of Christ, to die a disgraceful death for the remission of the sins of the entire world. If Christ did not come to shed His precious blood, God Almighty would not have come down to dwell with man in flesh and bone. When you talk of the Holy Spirit where will He dwell before He became personified? That first house of Adam was completely defiled and was not suitable for the Holy Spirit to dwell in. Therefore, the shedding of the blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ gave rise to purifying of the house of Adam and the arrival of the Holy Spirit. Read the statement of Our Lord Jesus Christ in
ST. JOHN 16: 7-9
"Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away; for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you; And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgement. Of sin, because they believe not on me."
The blood from goats and cows could not purify us. Now if through the blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ all our sins are forgiven, what is the assignment of the Holy Spirit?
THE MISSION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
1ST PETER 3: 13-14
"And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye; and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled."
The assignment of the Holy Spirit is to make the Kingdom of this world to become the Kingdom of Jehovah God and His Christ. He is to establish a New Heaven and a New Earth where only righteous dwells. That was not the responsibility of Christ and that was why after He had shed His blood, people still continue in their persistent in sinfulness.
With the advent of the Holy Spirit in the flesh, He is to transform mankind from mortality to immortality. The real work of the Holy Spirit is to make people refrain completely from all manners of sins. This is not the responsibility of one man, that is why God the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit have come down to accomplish this great task.
ST. JOHN 14: 12-14
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father; And whosoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it."
The greatest assignment is to reform a sinner and lead him to practice righteousness. Preaching, healing, vision, dreams and prophecy are the work of the flesh. The actual healing is when you who were a thief, a fornicator, a liar, an idolater, a necromancer, a juju priest, a drunkard, an adulterer are changed by the Holy Spirit.
Brethren, upon all the mighty works of Moses, Elijah and Christ, yet they could not change a sinner. None of them was perfect. For instance, Moses even though he caused the Red Sea to split into two, was a murderer, and because he was full of sin. When Christ preached to the Scribes and Pharisees, they did not repent, he cursed them. Read St. Matthew 11: 21
"Woe unto thee, Chorazini! Woe unto thee Bethsaida! For if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes."
ST. MATTHEW 23: 13-35
"But woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in;
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites" for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayer; therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation;
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte and when he is made, ye make him two-fold more the child of hell than yourselves. Ye fools and blind; for whether is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifieth the gift?
And whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing, but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it he is guilty; Ye fools and blind; for whether is greater the gift or the altar that sanctifieth gift? Whosoever therefore shall swear by the altar sweareth by it, and by all things thereon;
And whose shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that sweareth therein.; And he that shall swear by the heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgement, mercy and faith; these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel; Woe unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites" for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter that the outside of them may be clean also; Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites" for ye are like unto whitted sepulchers which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity; Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites" because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous; And say, if we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers; Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Wherefore behold, I send unto you prophets and wise men, and scribes, and some of them shall ye kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city. That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of Zacharias, son of Barrachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar."
ST. LUKE 11: 46
"And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! For ye lade men with burdens grievous to be born and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers."
Why then should the people of this generation compare Leader O.O. Obu with Jesus or with John, or with Elias or with Moses? Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself bore witness to the assignment to accomplish. The whole Christendom, world’s governments, companies and secret societies are not able to change a sinner to practice righteousness. Read:
ST. MATTHEW 15: 14
"Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind, and if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."
Who is the blind? Read:
2ND PETER 1: 5-9
"And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtues and to virtue knowledge. And to knowledge temperance and to temperance patience and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness and to brotherly kindness charity;
For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ; But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins."
ST. MATTHEW 15: 13
"But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted shall be rooted up."
Compare that verse with the contents of the first step of God. All vices not planted by the Father will be rooted up. Therefore fornication, anger, hatred, annoyance, adultery, idolatry, drinking, suffering, gossiping, division, pride, selfishness and other vices will be eradicated by the Holy Spirit. That is why when you tell somebody to follow you to Brotherhood, he will argue that he cannot come because Brotherhood, does not drink fornicate, steal, quarrel or indulge in the vices. He will tell you your Leader say, we should not fornicate, what of all these beautiful girls and handsome young men. Some of them will tell you that even Christ turned water to wine which means Christ encouraged drinking; and that Paul advised Timothy to take a little wine for the stomach trouble. They therefore conclude that drinking is not bad although the Leader of the Brotherhood says people should not drink even minerals.
Our Lord Jesus Christ never taught people to stop drinking and all the miracles he performed were carnal. The raising of Lazarus from the dead or the walking on top of the River did not cause people to refrain from sin and practice righteousness. The only assignment no one has ever undertaken since the foundations of the world were laid, is to change an evil doer from His former vices to the practice and demonstration of all the virtues of God. That is the greatest assignment.
BROTHERHOOD OF THE CROSS AND STAR THE CENTRE FOR REFORMATION:
Lucifer, Satan, demon, men, angels and the entire world bear testimony to the fact that once a sinner comes into the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, he is completely transformed from his former vices. Some men here were great native doctors, some were members of different mystical schools; some of you have practiced occultism for many years; some of you cannot do for a day without the use of drugs and tablets; some of you cannot stay or travel to anywhere without the use of talisman, amulet and concoctions; some of you were ardent smokers, snuffers, drunkards, fornicators, adulterers but today you all are completely transformed from these vices.
If someone had revealed to you by way of vision or dream that you will stay in this earth without smoking, drinking, fornicating, or visiting medical doctors and sorcerers, you would not believe, but behold today you are completely a changed person. All those who come with their sins are surprised to notice the rapid change in each of you. Read:
ST. MATTHEW 11: 20-23
"Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not; Woe unto thee, Chorranzin! Woe unto thee, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented a long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgement, than for you; And thou, Capernum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell for if the mighty works which have been done in thee, had been done in Sidon, it would have remained until this day."
Brethren, miracles are mere signs to reveal the physical presence of God on earth but cannot change a sinner. If one is deeply in sin, he will still see vision, heal the sick, raise the dead, open the eyes of the blind, prophesy and perform other mighty works, but from Adam to Christ none, was able to change a sinner, without duress such as beating, imprisonment, torture, excommunication and public execution.
Now that the Holy Spirit is personified, He uses only His words to change all His elects because He is a consuming fire. His words consume all the vices in us completely. When I call for testimony, I want you to testify how the Holy Spirit removed you completely from your former vices, and make it possible for you to practice righteousness. Have you ever read from a book of any man in this earth who teaches people and demonstrates all the virtues of God practically for 365 days; in the morning, in the afternoon and in the evening at dawn and dusk throughout the year?
As for wealth, promotion in business or at your places of work, passing of examination, or people going abroad to study in different field, they are the works of the flesh. The greatest position a person can hold in Brotherhood is to refrain completely from all vices. When your heart is pure, then the entire body will be pure and clean. Therefore, you must refrain from all manners of sin in order to recognise the Holy Spirit who personifies in your midst. The scripture teaches that blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God, once you abstain from sin, your heart will be pure, and your eyes will be open to recoginse the Holy Spirit dwelling in your midst.
Whatever is your situation in life, I do not recognise you whether you are President, Governor, King, Millionaire, Pope as long as you indulge in sins, you are carnal and will not have any share in this New Kingdom. Whether your soutane is as white as snow I do not know you because if you sin you have no share in this New Kingdom. As Moses, Elias, John and Christ succeeded in their assignments, like wise all those who are called into the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star are completely transformed from their sins.
THE CHRISTIANDOM IS THE CENTRE OF VICES
You all will bear with Me that the leaders of different churches and religions can’t practice righteousness. None can change his members from sinfulness to righteousness. If you go to some of these churches with ten sins by the time you spent one month, your sins will multiply to 100. And so the churches exists for nothing. Many Christians visit native doctor’s houses, sacrifice to mermaid and sue their enemies to the law courts. There is nothing done inside the churches that can reform a sinner from his evil ways. Churches cause division, one church will not agree with another church. That is why I say churches are the abode of Satan where all his vices are practiced.
ST. MATTHEW 15: 15-19
"Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable; And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they witness, blasphemies."
Why people do not come to Brotherhood is because of their vices. They rather prefer to stay inside their churches and glory in these vices claiming all churches are the same. We are now in New Heaven and New Earth where righteousness dwells, therefore it is incumbent upon everyone of you to abhor sin and practice righteousness. All the secret societies, church denominations and other mystical organisations are the abode of vices. They exist for nothing apart from causing confusion.
2ND TIMOTHY 4: 1-5
"I charge thee therefore before God, and Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his Kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all long-suffering and doctrine; For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables; But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of anevangelist, make full proof of thy ministry."
Each human being on Earth has his own assignment, therefore the churches and secret organisations had long accomplished the assignments they were destined to perform.
JUDE 1: 17-19
"But, beloved, remember ye the words, which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit."
That is the duty of the churches and religious organisations. They cause division and their members do not worship in any other church. If a Roman Catholic worships in the Jehovah Witness organisation, he will be ex-communicated. Only a Brotherhood of the cross and Star member is free to worship anywhere in the world, because Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is not a church neither is it prayer house but the New Heaven and the New Earth where righteousness dwells.
Adam was the house of God and the power of God.
GENESIS 1: 26-29
"And God said, let us make man in our own image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth; And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed to you it shall be for meat."
Fornication and adultery caused God to reduce the life span of man to 120 years.
GENESIS 6: 1-3
"And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them; That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose;
And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh; yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years."
The reason why God decided to destroy the man he created in his own image and likeness.
ST. JOHN 3: 16
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
ST JOHN 15: 13
"Greater love hath no man than this,that a man lay down his life for his friends."
GENESIS 6: 4-6
"There were giants in the earth in those days, andalso after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually; And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at this hearts."
Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedec and recognised Him as Almighty God personified and Melchizedec blessed Him.
GENESIS 14: 18-20
"And Melchizedec King of Salem brought forth bread and wine; and he was the priest of the most high God; And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth; And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all."
Adam lived 930 years.
GENESIS 5: 5
"And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years; and he died."
Why some baptised Brotherhood are sick, poor or suffer divers tribulations:
1 CORINTHIANS 11: 29-32
"For he that eateth and drinketh unworthy, eateth and drinketh damnation to imself, not discerning the Lord’s body; for this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep; For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged; But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, thatwe should not be condemned with the world."
Let My peace and blessings abide with the entire world. Now and forever more. Amen.

"And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold the Tabernacle of God is with is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away" (Rev 21:3-4)
