BAPTISM: WHO NEEDS IT, AND WHY?

1st Corinthians Chapter 15 verses 1 to End:


Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, whi
ch also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unles
s ye have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Chris
t died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the sc
riptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the grea
ter part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, be
cause I persecuted the church of God.
But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me
was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but t
he grace of God which was with me.
Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.
Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you tha
t there is no resurrection of the dead?
But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also v
ain.
Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God t
hat he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that s
lept.
For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are
Christ's at his coming.
Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even th
e Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put
under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under hi
m.
And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself b
e subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at
all? why are they then baptized for the dead?
And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?
I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantaget
h it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.
Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I s
peak this to your shame.
But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they co
me?
Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare gr
ain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another
flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the ce
lestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory
of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised
in incorruption:
It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is ra
ised in power:
It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural bod
y, and there is a spiritual body.
And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam w
as made a quickening spirit.
Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and af
terward that which is spiritual.
The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, su
ch are they also that are heavenly.
And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of th
e heavenly.
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God
; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be change
d,
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shal
l sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immor
tality.
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall h
ave put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written
, Death is swallowed up in victory.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in
the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in th
e Lord. (1st Corinthians Chapter 15 verses 1 to 58).
Brethren, I have my reason for choosing that passage for you. Many people regard
Paul the Apostle as somebody who hated the early Christians, and so all his sta
tements are not taken seriously. But one thing they fail to understand is that O
ur Lord Jesus Christ personally called him.
The statements he made were most the direct words of Our Lord Jesus Christ, reve
aling the mysteries of the Kingdom spoken through him. I continually reveal all
this recondite wisdom to you so while in the midst of the worldly people, you mi
ght not be a simpleton.
The worldly churches attach so much importance to the statements of John the Bap
tist, and the gospel according to St. John, but attach little or no importance t
o the preachings of Paul the Apostle whom they regarded as a demented fellow. On
ce again, I want to draw your attention to this very important issue that most o
f the time Paul acted as the mouthpiece of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Acts Chapter 9 verses 3 to 19:
And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round abou
t him a light from heaven:
And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why per
secutest thou me?
And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecu
test: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And th
e Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee wha
t thou must do.
And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seei
ng no man.
And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but
they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.
And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.
And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the
Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.
And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straig
ht, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behol
d, he prayeth,
And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on
him, that he might receive his sight.
Then 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 n
ame.
But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to be
ar my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.
And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on h
im said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way
as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be fille
d with the Holy Ghost.
And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received
sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days w
ith the disciples which were at Damascus. (Acts Chapter 9 verses 3 to 19).
Our Lord Jesus Christ has categorically said, Paul was a vessel through which he
would reach kings and princes. The wisdom he got therefore should not be regard
ed as a carnal one from his legal knowledge or that of social class in Judaism a
s a Pharisee. Our Lord Jesus Christ really preached through him.
This sort of talent is not for all, as many people do not have this knowledge; O
ur Lord Jesus Christ used many talented people like visioners and prophets to im
part His teachings to the world.
1st Corinthians Chapter 1 verse 17:
"For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of
words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect."
Have you heard that? Paul had not the assignment to baptize people; his job was
to preach the direct words of Our Lord Jesus Christ. This was not the legal wisd
om he acquired as a Pharisee. He was a mere instrument or the mouth piece of Our
Lord Jesus Christ.
If you say, Paul the Apostle made those statements himself, you are a blatant li
ar. Similarly, the words spoken by Our Lord Jesus Christ were not his, they were
the direct words from God Himself.
John Chapter 14 verses 9 to 11
Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not k
nown me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou
then, Shew us the Father?
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that
I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he
doeth the works.
Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for
the very works' sake. (John Chapter 14 verses 9 to 11).
Our Lord Jesus Christ could not have done anything without his Father doing it f
or him. When he spoke, it was the Father that passed through him to speak. It is
therefore wrong to say, those words of Our Lord Jesus Christ were his. Those we
re words directly spoken by God through him as His mouth piece. Our Lord Jesus C
hrist himself confirmed it.
It is erroneous therefore to say, Our Lord Jesus Christ attended any worldly uni
versity, after all it was God Himself who came down; otherwise, nobody would hav
e been competent enough to teach God. However, (as usual), the world did not bel
ieve in Him. In order to blackmail Him, they simply referred to Him as the son o
f Mary and Joseph the Carpenter.
John Chapter 7 verses 15 to 17:
And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learn
ed?
Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God
, or whether I speak of myself. (John Chapter 7 verses 15 to 17).
Our Lord Jesus Christ also passed through Apostle Paul to reveal this wisdom whi
ch the worldly astrologers could not discover. The words of Our Lord Jesus Chris
t were words of life and prophecy, and so could not have been acquired in worldl
y institutions of higher learning or universities. How many of you believe in re
surrection and that nobody dies?
The worldly people believe, once a person is dead, that is the end of that perso
n, and as such he or she is free to eat all he or she has, or does what he or sh
e is capable of doing; and their practice of the gospel should therefore be set
aside.
1st Corinthians Chapter 15 verses 21 to 23:
For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are
Christ's at his coming. (1st Corinthians Chapter 15 verses 21 to 23).
If you believe, Our Lord Jesus Christ died and God caused Him to rise up again,
then those of you who believe in Him would also rise with Him. You continue to d
o evil because you do not believe in God, you are confused and invariably you fi
nd it difficult to refrain from sin.
Resurrection is the very foundation of our faith, after all there is nothing lik
e death for the children of the living God. If the dead had no hope of resurrect
ion, what then could have been the purpose of baptism? Do you not know, once you
believed and are baptized, you all become new creatures?
You should thank God for this secret revealed to you because once you are baptiz
ed you become a changed person. Death has no dominion over you. Nor on those who
may not be here, but who have agreed to confess their sins, get immersed in wat
er and rise from it.
Your first death is when you are baptized; and then the second death has no domi
nion over you, just exactly as the baptism which Our Lord Jesus Christ obtained,
made it impossible for death to have dominion over Him. For eternity, He will n
ever die, and those who believe in Him will never taste of death.
Whether you believe it or not, it is a statement of authority which cannot be co
ntested. Some people are wondering where the power in Brotherhood of the Cross a
nd Star comes from, whereby charms, apparition and even gun shots would not have
any effect on you. The answer is you all have become new creatures, though this
wisdom has eluded many of you.
Therefore when you come into Brotherhood, the first thing is to subject yourself
to this baptism of water; and the Holy Spirit, being the first death and the re
surrection, otherwise, your worldly wealth such as cars, skyscrapers, money will
mean nothing to you when that time comes.
Once again, I am revealing to you, the secret and the recondite wisdom in Brothe
rhood is the water baptism of fire and the Holy Spirit. There is no amount of re
search or secret investigation that could help you to know this secret. Preachin
g carnally or giving money to people or going on ministry work cannot help you,
except you subject yourself to water baptism of fire and Holy Spirit.
John Chapter 3 verse 5:
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water a
nd of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (John Chapter 3 verse
5).
Brethren, once you are baptized, old things are passed away, and new things set
in, and you become a new creature. Many people who have already been baptized in
orthodox churches, find it difficult to get baptized again in Brotherhood, in t
hat it is not that simple to just get baptized in Brotherhood if the Father does
not personally call you.
Some people can donate 5000 Naira, put on white soutane and even conduct feast w
ith fat sums of money, but yet they find it difficult to be baptized into the fo
ld.
It is fallacious to say, those who are outside Brotherhood know Brotherhood more
than those in Brotherhood, because it is common knowledge, the day you are bapt
ized is the day you are liberated and justified; you become a new creature.
Our Lord Jesus Christ said, except a man be born of water and the Holy Ghost, he
cannot enter into the Kingdom. No amount of prayers, fasting, or oiling of your
eyes or ears can save you.
Some of you whose names were taken to secret courts spiritually or otherwise, ha
d them erased the moment you were baptized into the fold, if you can keep note o
f what happens to you from day to day, you will be surprised, these are all stra
nge and you are now completely a new person.
For example, there was one brother who had a friend working in one of the big ba
nks in the country. His carnal father wanted to use this brother in the bank for
their annual ritual, (mystical), sacrifice, but fortunately for the brother he
was baptized into the fold of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star.
As soon as the brother got baptized, his name disappeared from the register of t
he secret cult, and the process whereby this brother was to be destroyed by hang
ing also vamoosed.
When the carnal father investigated, he discovered, this brother got baptized in
to Brotherhood and so started making trouble with the brother who took his fathe
r to Brotherhood. Eventually, he had to replace his son according to the laws an
d the regulations of the secret cult, and so paid for his wicked deeds by his ow
n death.
Mark Chapter 16 verses 16 to 18:
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shal
l be damned.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out d
evils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hu
rt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. (Mark Chapter
16 verses 16 to 18).
What meaning do you deduce from this passage? This is not a question of somebody
saying I am a pastor, a prophet, chorister, etc., water baptism is of great sig
nificance, you must certainly partake of it before you are saved. If on the cont
rary, you fail to believe or get baptized, you are condemned. It is compulsory.
Romans Chapter 6 verses 2 to 4:
God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized
into his death?
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was
raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk
in newness of life. (Romans Chapter 6 verses 2 to 4).
Have you heard that? Brethren, whatever may be your sins, it does not really mat
ter whether you were a thief, necromancer, juju priest, society man, once you be
lieve and receive water baptism, you are liberated and saved. But on the contrar
y, if you stay in Brotherhood for more than 20 years without baptism, you have n
either died nor resurrected, you are damned.
Galatians Chapter 3 verses 26 to 28:
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
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. (Galatians Chapter 3 verse
s 26 to 28).
That is why Our Lord Jesus Christ has commissioned all His disciples to go into
the world to preach the gospel and to baptize in the Name of the Father, Son, an
d the Holy Spirit.
Matthew Chapter 19 verse 28:
And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me,
in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, y
e also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (Matt
hew Chapter 19 verse 28).
If you merely go to the sick and the afflicted and pray for them to get well or
be freed, do you think they are really saved? Can preaching alone save somebody?
Therefore brethren, you shall realize charm extraction, either from the body or
from the ground cannot save anybody. Donating motor cars to somebody or giving t
hem millions of naira cannot save anybody. Those who are never baptized shall ne
ither be saved nor have the chance of resurrection.
Even Our Lord Jesus Christ, if He was not baptized He would not have got the pow
er to resurrect when He died. It is only Adam alone who came directly from Jehov
ah God that did not receive this water baptism, but everybody else born of woman
must, as a matter of truth, partake of this baptism of water, and the Holy Spir
it, be you a pastor, a pope, or a reverend gentleman. This takes your iniquities
away and you become a changed person. All cases pending in spiritual courts or
elsewhere against you, are set aside and you become free.
For example, there was a certain person from Ogoja who was capable of changing o
r turning himself into different objects such as stones. But as soon as he was b
aptized into Brotherhood, he was changed into a new creature, the capability to
turn into other objects was taken away from him.
That water is the Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and that is why a personality
like Dr. Aggarwal of India refused to subject himself to the water baptism, as t
his makes the receivers new creatures.
Revelation Chapter 7 verses 1 to 15:
And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the ear
th, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the ea
rth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living G
od: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to h
urt the earth and the sea,
Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed
the servants of our God in their foreheads.
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundr
ed and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were se
aled twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were
sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were se
aled twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were
sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of a
ll nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and
before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the
throne, and unto the Lamb.
And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the fo
ur beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and
power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed
in white robes? and whence came they?
And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which
came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white
in the blood of the Lamb.
Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his
temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. (Revelation Ch
apter 7 verses 1 to 15).
What do you understand by the statement which says, "these are they which came o
ut of great tribulation." (Revelation Chapter 7 verse 14). I am saying emphatica
lly, once you confess your sins and are baptized, all your sins are taken away a
nd you become new creatures, and as you are all here, you are no more your old s
elves.
Colossians Chapter 3 verse 11:
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian
, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. (Colossians Chapter 3
verse 11).
Once you are put into water during baptism, the Father takes dominion over your
body and you become justified. When gospels are preached at times you become per
turbed, you need not feel so because the water baptism you received has taken ca
re of that.
God does not behave the way human beings do. Therefore he saves you because you
serve Him; and He has even saved you when you did not believe in Him so you may
have nothing to say or to boast of. Also, God does not take away your tribulatio
ns, sickness or what have you, because you make feast or pay tithes. He does so
out of his sheer loving kindness.
Many of you here have the Father nearest to you even when you blaspheme greatly
against His Holy name. He comes much closer to you even when you needed Him not,
so you may have nothing to boast of.
As a matter of fact, it is only men who need gratification, glory and thanks, wh
en they help you. But God is not interested in that. He continues to help you de
spite your ingratitude or lack of hearts of thankfulness.
Romans Chapter 9 verses 25 and 26:
As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people;
and her beloved, which was not beloved.
And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are
not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. (Roma
ns Chapter 9 verses 25 and 26).
If you do something for your fellow man and he fails to thank you, another time
you will not help him, but God is not like that. After all God is not so poor as
to demand gifts from you whenever He helps you. God does not do something for y
ou to know Him; rather He honours words of His promise more than anything else.
It is great disrespect or outright blasphemy for you to write a letter and enclo
se money for God or make lame promises that if God does this or that for you, yo
u would do this or that. God does His things in the way He likes and therefore n
eeds nobody to direct or advise Him.
Matthew Chapter 5 verses 44 and 45:
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to the
m that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you
;
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his
sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on th
e unjust. (Matthew Chapter 5 verses 44 and 45).
In the worldly churches people are made to pay certain amounts of money before t
hey are made a pastor or prophet, or an elder; and when they are confirmed, they
also pay some money, but it is wrong for one to intend to offer God money befor
e something is done for him. It is an act of blasphemy. God can only give, He ca
nnot receive.
It is customary, whenever you give out your daughter in marriage, you receive mo
ney, that is, what you call dowry, but you simply forget, God gives you life, fo
od, water and air free of charge, and in addition, He makes you healthy and rich
. Why do you have to charge other people when you do something for them? May be
because you need money so badly. But you should realize, not all who pursue mone
y madly, have it.
For instance there is a certain man in Calabar who married forty wives and is on
ly able to have three children, two have died and only one child is now left for
him. If God does not elevate you, you cannot elevate yourself. God promotes tho
se He likes and in doing this, there is nobody to challenge or question Him for
doing so.
Romans Chapter 9 verse 16:
So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that
sheweth mercy. (Romans Chapter 9 verse 16).
God does not give or take bribes, therefore, He raises you up or brings you down
when He pleases. He does with you what He wants, and there is nothing you can d
o about it.
Matthew Chapter 10 verse 8:
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye ha
ve received, freely give. (Matthew Chapter 10 verse 8).
The words spoken to you are made manifest today. I want to reveal to you, not ma
ny of you will sleep, when you shall have been changed.
Many worldly churches want to keep morning and evening prayers just as Brotherho
od is doing, but do you notice, most of these pastors or prophets or priests do
sleep till 12 noon without waking up? But you, who wake up as soon as it is 5 AM
, did you ever think you will walk on bare feet? But right now the Father is doi
ng His work in you. The worldly people think, you are poor demented fellows. Onc
e you come out from the water baptism, you start speaking in tongues; calling th
e Father, "Wonderful Father." Formerly you used to go about with a bevy of girls
, smoking, snuffing, drinking and fornicating, but now you are a changed person,
a new creature, you regard these vices as evil.
You keep on calling the Father and attributing everything happening to you as be
ing done by the Father and the Father passing through everything. You no longer
say that this or that will happen to you in the next generation, but have the an
ticipation, all good things will come to you in this life. You no longer observe
special mealtimes, three or two times daily at a specific time, but you eat any
time the Father permits; even at midnight.
You have no more specialist doctors, or consultants for the treatment of your fa
mily; taking drugs daily in order to keep fit. No more regulations for playing g
ames or sleeping, everything is planned and executed for you by the Father, you
no longer own yourself, the Father is in everything and is doing everything for
you. You now regard people who smoke, drink, snuff or prostitute as demented fel
lows.
While in the world, you were always fearful and you were with problems of one so
rt or the other at all times, and you were afraid of even your shadows. But now
you are free from all these tribulations.
In the world you never went out in the night because you suspected everything an
d everybody around you, but now all things are friends and brothers and mean no
harm to you. Some of your friends are trying to stop smoking and snuffing like y
ou, but they cannot do it because of the evil spirits which are still taking dom
inion over them, and unless they put on the new creature, which is Our Lord Jesu
s Christ, it will not be possible. Those of you who were easily irritated, now y
ou no longer get easily annoyed. And as recorded in 1st Corinthians Chapter 15 v
erses 49 to 51 you have been changed.
1st Corinthians Chapter 15 verses 49 to 51:
And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of th
e heavenly.
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God
; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be change
d. (1st Corinthians Chapter 15 verses 49 to 51).
There has never been any expression of love in man except in Jehovah God and His
Christ. Has any man ever got the attributes of God such as love, joy, peace, hu
mility, faith, hope, etc.? Have you ever seen a person who is addressed as a wit
ch, bloodsucker, yet he never takes people to court and he is never worried or a
nnoyed for being so addressed? When you drive him away he comes again to you? In
years gone by, you were going about with baskets of tribulations and tears, but
today, you are all changed into new creatures without problems.
John Chapter 14 verse 12:
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do sha
ll he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Fa
ther. (John Chapter 14 verse 12).
You are now free from all types of encumbrances in life. The churches which burn
candles, beat drums, and burn incenses cannot raise the dead, but in Brotherhoo
d, there is no burning of candles, incense or beating of drums, yet numerous mir
acles are being performed daily in different parts of the world.
While you were in the world, you decorated yourselves with various types of myst
ic rings or talismen, charms and amulets, yet various types of problems and sick
nesses engulfed you, and you, with your bucket of tears, roaming about the world
hopelessly in search of salvation. But right now you are free.
Some of you who could not see vision go to necromancers to preach to them. Some
of your friends refuse to greet you or shake hands with you, because they are no
w afraid of the Father who is in you, and some close their doors against you. Th
ose who wanted to destroy you with some diabolical means, now run away whenever
they see you because they think, you have been initiated into one of the highest
and the most powerful societies in the world. As a matter of fact, nobody belie
ves, there is nothing diabolical in Brotherhood, except those who are physically
here.
If you go to offer someone prayers the first day, the second day the person will
not accept it from you because the prayers offered the previous day had rendere
d all the person's charms and concoctions useless. This is so because Our Lord J
esus Christ takes dominion over you and as such no evil things could prevail any
more.
Some of you, on whose lives several attempts had been made, are now being blackm
ailed. They say the "Leader" gives you something to use for protection. Any plac
e your names are taken to, the concoctions or charms there are rendered useless.
The people of the world can recommend any kind of church for you to attend, but
as for Brotherhood nobody wants its existence. While in the world you hardly eve
r speak in the public or before people, but right now you are bold and courageou
s enough to stand before people anywhere and speak confidently. All these are po
ssible because of the water baptism you received.
1st Corinthians Chapter 15 verses 35 to 40:
But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they co
me?
Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare gr
ain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another
flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the ce
lestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. (1st Corinthians Ch
apter 15 verses 35 to 40).
There are bodies which are of the earth, and are earthy and those from above are
heavenly. For example, when you plant yam tubers in the ground, these will die
and bring forth fresh, new and better yams of their kind.
The explosive population in Nigeria shortly after the civil war was a result of
the many people who died, went and multiplied and came back. You often see vario
us types of rats, flies, bats, wall ghecko, etc., changing themselves into vario
us planes of creations.
As your faces are different so also are your various places of abode; as many of
you are from the moon, sun, stars, water, etc. You ought to look at nature very
objectively because His wisdom is beyond the research of man's understanding. I
f the yam tubers buried in the ground do not die, new yam tubers cannot, (for su
re), be harvested.
Malachi Chapter 4 verses 2 to 6:
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing
in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of y
our feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for
all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dr
eadful day of the LORD:
And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the
children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. (Malac
hi Chapter 4 verses 2 to 6).
A time shall come when even your elder brother who died will come to disclose to
you, he is your brother, but you will not know him. You have heard, Elijah was
transformed, but should the people keep the picture of Elijah to compare with hi
s former face, they will see that it is not the same. While he is the same perso
n. They doubted him because of their unreasonableness. Who was John the Baptist?
He was Elijah. (Matthew Chapter 11 verse 14). Men are just like yam tubers, the
y go and multiply, just as Jehovah God had said, but the process is a mystery no
t known to humanity.
Luke Chapter 1 verse 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; t
o make ready a people prepared for the Lord. (Luke Chapter 1 verse 17).
(See Matthew Chapter 11 verses 12 to 14)
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth
violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law pro
phesied until John. And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to c
ome. (Matthew Chapter 11 verses 12 to 14).
(See Also Mark Chapter 9 verses 11 to 13)
And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? And
he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things;
and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be
set at nought. But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have don
e unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him. (Mark Chapter 9 vers
es 11 to 13).
Brethren, you will realize, then there is nothing in changing you, into newer an
d more beautiful creatures; as many of you have come as much as five times; thou
gh it is not meant for you to know. This is just God's purpose as the only King
who knows the secret of His Kingdom.
Brethren, I shall not be tedious unto you. Let my peace and blessing remain and
abide with you. Amen.
THANK YOU FATHER.
