"THE VANITY OF OLD TEACHINGS"
TEXT: ST. MATTHEW 24: 1-END.
We do not do things in this Kingdom according to the dictates of the flesh. All the gospels given in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star come from God. Your problem is that you mix the material things with that of the divine kingdom. The teachings of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star do not come from man or angel. They come directly from the Almighty. All that you see on earth are vanity. The teachings of the world and their laws are things of the flesh and are very negative in nature. The teachings of this Kingdom are from God, as such, no matter the amount of prayer and fasting you undertake, without practicing the words of God, you are wasting your time. Let verses 1 and 2 be read:
"And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, see ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down". (St. Matthew 24: 1-2).
Where are all the magnificent cathedrals and flowing traditions and customs that existed in those days? All the deceitful tradition like inheriting the position your father left behind as a co-founder of the church, participating in communion, or tolling bell to signify funeral. Men are so engrossed with frivolous things that they even forget about the Kingdom of God. The bane of the world is from this reason. People who came before Christ came for their selfish needs. The churches that were founded earlier before this time were established for selfish purposes. Magnificent edifices were erected to teach worldly things in the name of God. Thank God, many of these old teachings are fading away. This confirms what the scripture says in St. John 10: 8 that:
"All that ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them".
Christ came to destroy evil things. All the practices that our forefathers indulge in, undertaking pilgrimage to Jerusalem, believing on the laws of Moses among other things were in vain. If the practices of men were good, why did Our Lord Jesus Christ come? Our Lord Jesus Christ is the only savior of man and the Son of God. He shed His unblemished blood for the redemption of mankind. Jesus the Christ is the only Being who rules the world. He is the Son of God, the son of man, and God Himself. He is also made of the flesh, spirit and soul. He has a dual nature. His component comprises water, which stands for the Son of God, blood, which is the son of man, and spirit, which signifies the Godhead. If you go by the teachings of Moses, Abraham and Melchizedek, you will be destroyed because they were not endowed with the attributes of God, as it is the case with Christ.
Brethren, I want you to realize that all the practices in churches from the time of Moses to date do not bring any meaningful thing to mankind. This is so because the exponents of these old teachings were not well versed with the scripture. A blind man cannot lead the blind. Churches and the people of the world are still practicing the old and obnoxious traditions of the new yam festival, the coronation of chiefs and chief priest, sprinkling of water on the forehead as a form of baptism and pouring of libation among other things. It was Our Lord Jesus Christ who came to teach mankind the only way to God and salvation. Yet, the world conspired and killed Him because they could not comprehend the good message He brought to mankind.
There is discrimination, unhealthy rivalry, hatred, and religious intolerance among churches and among church leaders. Our Lord Jesus Christ showed you the truth. As such, you have to refrain from carnal things. When you go into any of the churches today, their attitudes will expose their lack of respect for God, because the Holy Spirit does not direct them. They indulge in unwholesome practices, fornication, gossiping, drinking of alcohol among other bad habits. These people are ignorant of their ignoble acts. If the pope is invited into this Kingdom, he will be at sea about how our doctrines are alien to other churches. To you who have seen the light, you should all shine to illuminate others. Read:
Ephesians 4: 11: "And he gave some apostles and some prophets and some evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers". Read also
Colossians 2: 11: "In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ".
Brethren the crave for material things is the greatest problem in the world today. The love for traditions and culture was manifested when King James withdrew his membership from the Roman Catholic Church, which resulted in the establishment of the Church of Scotland. This same tradition and culture is seen as the bedrock of the different churches founded in the world today. The numerous practices by the world and the church denominations are not in accordance with the laws of God. The rites of passage, the wedding ceremony, the suspension of members as practiced by some churches, ostracism of members and imposition of fines on members are not the tenets of God. They do these things in order to satisfy their selfish purposes. This is where Brotherhood differs from these churches because the Holy Spirit directs Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. In some denominations, their practices are negation of Christ's teachings. These churches pour libation. Some looked for elementary spirits for protection. Brotherhood is concerned with the word of God. Some churchgoers attend church services with talisman on their necks; some get intoxicated with alcohol while some came out from native doctors before they come to church. They talk of Holy Communion when they do not know the meaning. It is in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star that the real communion is done. I am assuring you that you are saved. Read St. Matthew 24: 3-4
"And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying tell us, when shall these things be; and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, take heed that no man deceive you".
From this excerpt, you can now understand what had happened, what is happening and what will happen in the future, the events of the past, the present and future are revealed here. All that is written in this excerpt is fulfilled. The recent happenings in USSR and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Iraq, America, among other nations underscores this fact. There are wars and rumors of war in the world. Many homes and people are lost to flood, earthquake among other natural disasters occurs all over the world. Many people claim falsely that they know Christ.
Even within Brotherhood members, many people have risen up to proclaim themselves variously as Christ, prophet and Christ's Servants. They claim to have the powers of healing. Many are deceived. It has been written that nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom and there shall be pestilence, earthquakes and famine in the world. People shall betray one another, and iniquities shall abound. The love of many shall wax cold but he who endures to the end shall be saved. For the sign of the end, there shall be rumors of war and wars. The First World War may be regarded as the beginning of the prophecy. There are holocausts and pogrom the world over. People are killed with impunity. Nations are scattered. The events in the world only take the worldly people by surprise. We know that, it is the fulfillment of the Father's words about the signs of the end. This is a period of changeover, a time to make all things anew. This is because the world has derailed from the path of rectitude.
In 1914, the whole world witnessed global war as a result of the squabble and misunderstanding between Germany and the British Empire. In 1917, Russia placed a ban on all forms of religious activities in its territory. In 1917, in a small town of Padua (in Portugal) the Holy Mother appeared to the three girls (Jacintha and the rest) revealing her existence in the blacks. A testimony from one principal in Bakana revealed that Calabar is a very powerful spiritual seat that is why there is peace. The wordings of the song, 'Canna, Canna Calabar, I'll be there tomorrow' confirms the stability and peaceful co-existence that exists in the city. This gospel underscores the assertion that, the earth and heaven shall pass away but God's word cannot pass away. If you are privileged to witness the signs of the end, what stops you from being righteous? Why can't you refrain from evil? There is no comfortable life in the world.
The name of Jesus and O.O.O perturb people of the world, that they are angry at the mere mention of those names. This confirms what is written in the scripture that people will be persecuted for the sake of God's name. Almost all the church denominations are preaching against Brotherhood because they do not have anything to teach. The tenets of church denominations reveal the fact that many false prophets have risen up to you who have been opportuned to receive this kind of salvation, you should hold fast to your God, and praise Him for His goodness. There is a popular saying that: 'what a man can do a woman can do better'. Pastor Dappa was one of the first set as well as early pastors sent to Bakana for evangelism. He never did his assignment. Later on a sister was sent there, but surprisingly, she has put up a mighty cathedral and has converted the chief of the village to this faith.
Rivers State could be said to be a Brotherhood stronghold because many of its prominent sons and daughters are members. When some of its gubernatorial aspirants visited Me, I told them that whoever I will appoint to be a governor must be a God fearing person. The same measure will be applicable to the aspirants in Cross River and Akwa Ibom States. This is the period for honesty. I gave the presidential and governor seats to Shehu Shagari and Dr. Isong respectively which they misused.
I always advised the chiefs who come to Me with problems to get baptized into the fold and celebrate feast. A testimony from one Royal Highness revealed that, his assistant could not become a member of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star because of his wife and his church (the Cherubim and Seraphim). Despite pressure from the chief, his assistant remained adamant. It was not long, there was a dispute in the village, which resulted in violence and the man's life was taken. The question is, did his wife and church save him? Seek God first in your life. I advise everybody to recognize God as the giver and ruler of everything. Once you do this, I reassure you that you cannot be harmed.
Inspite of the trouble made by the world to bring down Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, it rather makes it grow in strength and power. To believe in money, government, and political party does not save you. To have faith in the Lord is ultimate. If you are persecuted because of God's work, you should console yourself with what the scripture says in St. John 16.
May My peace and blessings abide with you. Amen.
Thank You Good Father

"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)
