HOW TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD

First Bible Lesson: Revelation 22:14

“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”

Second Bible Lesson: Revelation 21:27

“And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie; but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”

Golden Text: 2 Peter 3:14

“Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.”

“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”

Second Bible Lesson: Revelation 21:27

“And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie; but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”

Golden Text: 2 Peter 3:14

“Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.”

It is said: believest that there is one God? Thou doest well. The devils also believe and tremble. But the devils still commit sins. If you know that God is in existence and that God will judge the world and that He has kept the Kingdom for those who do what He likes, would you continue to sin, and then pray God to forgive you? What is the need for your prayers?

You were waiting for the truth. The truth has arrived; but you have rejected the truth. It is not calling upon Jesus that will save you. It is not calling on Jehovah that will save you. It is not building a house that will save you.

It is said, therefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot and blameless. (2 Peter 3:14). When it is said that God helps those who help themselves, this is how you can help yourself.

“Blessed are they that wash their garments clean, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gate into the city.” (Revelation 22:14). Is this not the city that we are heading for? Is it not that city that I am leading you to? What if your garment is not clean, will you be able to enter?

To be carnally minded is death but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. (Romans 8:6). We have money, employment, and wealth but we are looking for trustworthy persons. At least one or two persons should know what we have come to do and our ultimate aim.

The most surprising thing is that after looking at all of you, I found that you all dance to the same tune, seeking for earthly things. No one person seems to know what he has come to do, or why Our Lord Jesus Christ died, or the work He did or the reason for His resurrection.

Remember that when our Lord Jesus had accomplished his assignment in Bethsaida and Chorazin, He returned only to find that no person had repented, and so He became exasperated and upbraided them. (Matt 11:21 /Luke 10:13).

Our Lord Jesus Christ has said: “I did not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.” (Mark 2:17/Luke 5:32). Everyday you come and plead with the Father to give you money, to make it possible for you to win contracts, to give you a child; and that He should speak the word that your infirmities may be healed. Are these what I came to do in the world?

You also plead with the Father that you are going to be transferred from one town to another and the He should speak the word so that the transfer may be cancelled; or that you are indebted to people, that He should speak that you may be able to defray your debt. Are these what I came to do in the world? These are the situations which give me much concern and pity. When I consider the totality of the inhabitants of the world and indeed you people here, how many of you are prepared to enter into the Kingdom of God?

You have erected your imposing and magnificent building. You have done many other things including the training of your children and buying of expensive motor cars. But what about this Kingdom? Who will enter? The Scriptures have told us that where a man’s treasure is, there his heart must be also. (Matthew 6:21). You will notice that your heart and mind are in carnal things, because your treasures are on earth.

In this Kingdom, there is neither quarrelling, nor scrambling, nor competition nor any other thing. It is not grievous, there is no difficulty, it is quite easy to enter. All the undesirable things which happen beginning from wrath, anger, deceit, fastidiousness or the complaints of theft, anger and other vices, are due to the quest for the things of the world.

But now we have more than sufficient of everything in this Kingdom of God. Who will eat all the food in this Kingdom? Who will enjoy all the blessings and glory and honour and grace abundant in the Kingdom? But all of you are concentrating at the city of death. These explain the cause of my groaning since I received the information. Realize why my eyes are filled with tears. You always argue that you have been in Brotherhood for twenty years, but your twenty years do not benefit you in anyway, because you know neither the place you are now, nor the invitation extended to you; nor are you prepared for this election. Do you realize that all that are nominated in the pages of the Scriptures, from Genesis to the Revelation of John the Divine, will be manifested and you will see all with your naked eyes? What shall it profit you to gain the whole world and lose your own soul? (Matthew 16:26/Mark 8:36). Have you not been told that the whole world is going to be destroyed? The destruction of the whole world is long overdue. It is, however, due to the great pity I have for you, the lots of weeping, and the intercession I make, otherwise the destruction is quite overdue. Do not plead with the governor, nor with the President nor with any other person to come to Brotherhood. Brotherhood is not such an institution you should beg people to come to. Every person should be left to himself. But for your own salvation, seize this golden opportunity and work for your salvation by abstaining from quarrelling and other sins. Do not tell people that Olumba Olumba Obu is God or Jesus Christ. Such claims are immaterial in what we are considering. But seize this opportunity to practice the gospel and then wait on the Lord. Do not bother yourself opening a Bethel or going on ministry work because Paul has said, “I keep under my body and bring it into subjection, lest by any means when I have preached to others, I myself should be a cast away”. (1 Cor 9:21). If you open a Bethel but you have not refrained from sins, and for that reason you do not enter, what is your profit?

As I am standing here, I am thinking where I should be on that day of reckoning, because a brother will not know his brother, it will appear to you as in a dreamland and as in a magic theater. Whatever we have done are losses to us until we are found in that great city. Where are those who have washed their garments clean and who will have the right to the tree of life who may enter into the city through the gate? (Revelation 22:14).

A local adage has it that a bird sings melodiously when it has not yet fallen into a snare. I plead with you to refrain from falsehood, theft, backbiting, drinking, deceit and other vices. But you pay deaf ears to these instructions which are given you, year in and year out, from January to December.

The word of God has been preached to you. Everything has been explained and expatiated and interpreted to you. You have been enjoined, advised, rebuked, exhorted but you refuse to comply yourself with the instructions. What then do you want me to do?

You have heard what has been read to you that “and there shall in no wise enter in anything that defiles.” (Revelation 21:27). Exasperation will not be admitted. Deceit will not be admitted. Neither the thief, nor the fearful nor the doubtful will enter into that city. Neither the drunkard, nor the gluttonous, nor the prostitute, nor the necromancer, nor the liar will enter into the city, except those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (Revelation 21:27).

Remember the story of the rich man who dressed in purple and poor Lazarus. He was very rich. He ate good and delicious food, dressed in rich purple and fine linen. But Lazarus, stricken with abject poverty, and with incurable ulcers, was laid at the gate of the rich man desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. (Luke 16:19).

Lazarus died after sometime, and not long after, the rich man also died. But Lazarus was taken to Abraham’s bosom, and the rich man was in hell fire. He stood afar off in his place of torment and saw Abraham in the land beyond with Lazarus sitting on Abraham’s bosom. He cried and said, “Father Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue because I am tormented in the flame.” (Luke 16:19-24).

It is exactly the same situation that you want applied to yourself. I remain here from 1st January to 31st December every year preaching the word of God to you, lecturing you, and giving you advice; and I begin again the following year; and yet no person listens, no person repents and no person reforms. What then do you want to see? Can you now realize the pity I have for you all?

It is said, “now are we sons of God but it is not yet revealed what we shall be, but when He shall appear we shall see him as He is and we shall be like Him…” (l John 3:2). Right now have you not seen the truth, love, patience, humility, peace, mercy, goodness, meekness and joy? But you continue to quarrel, and fight even inside this hall, outside, in your houses, at the market places along the road, you continue to cause confusion as if you have never heard anything about the truth.

I want each and everyone of you on getting back home to ask himself what really he is doing. Thousands and millions of whites, blacks, coloured, short, tall and people of all description are coming into this one Kingdom. No name has been mentioned; but “blessed is he who has washed his garment clean that he may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” (Revelation 22:14).

Your body is your garment. Refrain from fornication, anger, concoction, drinks and all vices. You should not defile the body. When you refrain from all vices it means, you have washed your garment clean.

What is the wisdom behind your spending your millions to build a magnificent place but you do not think it fit to build up yourself? Brotherhood does not need money. We do not boast of money, nor of large population, nor of motor cars, nor of television sets, nor of recognition by the government or the prominent people of the world. We are not interested in such things. But we do glory in being able to pass through the gate into the city.

The military government of Nigeria claims that she recognizes Mohammedanism, Catholicism and Protestantism as the only religions in Nigeria. We are not concerned with that. Such issues do not interest us at all. Many people try to arrange the church denominations in the chronological order of their existence. We are not interested in which church denomination came first or last. Our interest is in washing our garments clean so that we may have right to the tree of life, and enter in through the gates into the city.

I had told you that right from now you should go and preach to the people on this topic. I am not interested in Bethels, or healing homes, or prayer houses, or service centers, but go and tell the governor to refrain from sin.

Tell the chiefs, lawyers, millionaires that their achievements do not save them. Let everyone seize this opportunity to work for his salvation. No man knows the day, or month or year. It will come to many as a thief in the night. (Revelation 16:15). Refrain from sin so that you can have right to the tree of life.

Do not dispute the scriptures with any person. Simply advise him not to snuff again; that those who snuff will not enter. He should not drink again. He should not indulge in the preparation of concoction. He should not litigate. He should not fornicate. Give them the advice straight and clear. If any person questions you, tell him you are sent to deliver the message.

This is our hope. If you hope on having a right to the tree of life and to enter in through the gate, you have to wash your garment clean. Why you find that the vegetarians do not eat meat but feed on fruits is not that they may not have money or because of anything but so that their garment may be clean so that they may enter in through the gates into the city. Why you find many people refraining from drinking and denouncing the things of this world such as marriage is that they may be able to make their garment clean in order that they may have right to the tree of life and enter in through the gates into the city.

Do not tell somebody to come to Brotherhood so that he may have a child, or that he may have money, or employment. There is no truth in such claims. You are rather taking the person back into the world.

All those who advise people to come into Brotherhood that they may have money have fallen away from the path of rectitude and have not seen this truth. Whoever thinks that when he comes into Brotherhood he will have money has strayed from the path completely. In fact the call has not yet been extended to him.

Your duty wherever you are now is to go from house to house, city to city, preaching that men should forsake sins. Also, do not tell any person that Obu is God, or spirit, or angel, or prophet. Keep Obu aside but concentrate on what I have shown to you so that every person may wash his garment clean and have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

For all the gospels you have received this year, you should go and preach to people. Like this gospel, you should now be able to let somebody know why he is told to forsake fornication. Not that he may have money, or achieve great things, or live long or die, but so that he may wash his garment clean to enable him to enter through the gate into the city. Our first lesson will now be read since I do not wish to overload you.

First Bible Lesson: Revelation 22:14

“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”

Brethren, have you heard that? Blessed are they who wash their garments clean, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gate into the city. If you do not wash your garment but continue to drink, snuff and contend that when Our Lord Jesus Christ comes, He will change you, you will end up groping in darkness. The works of darkness had ended. You had been told that the world had already been judged from the beginning. What you are told about is the final judgement.

Remember when Pilate posed questions to our Lord Jesus Christ, He told him, “My Kingdom is not of this world, if it were of this world, my people would have fought, but my Kingdom is not of this world.” (John 18:36).

It is a great surprise to find you professing that you are Brotherhood but you like the things of this world, and seek after the things of this world more than the things of God. What are you looking for in the world? The world had already been judged.

All good things are in this Kingdom. Life is in this Kingdom. Peace is in this Kingdom. Glory is in this Kingdom. All happiness and gladness are found in this Kingdom. But it is pathetic to find you seeking after the things in the world. Must it be construed that your life names are not in the Lamb’s Book of Life?

This gospel is delivered as a guide, protector, and a reminder, so that where you have fallen, you should make amendment and rise. Because I often hear people say, the Father is not angry, He does not complain, do as you like because we have already entered.

You have not entered. I have no business with sin. I have no business with falsehood. I have no business with this world, and any of the things in the world. My business is to lead you through the gate into the city. If you refrain from sins, it means you have reached the wisdom of truth. You will not be angry, you will not drink, you will no longer eat meat. You will no longer commit sins. Not that you will be beaten up if you commit sin but it means you are unclean, unworthy and will not have any share in this Kingdom. What we are doing now is not the Brotherhood I am describing to you. I had thought that I will take you into the city by force, even with your multitude of sins. But through the information I have received, if you are left with any iota of sin, it will be impossible for you to enter. It is for this reason that I have come to sound this note of warning into your ears.

I have been saying it before, that a sinner will not enter. If you are left with one sin, you have only yourself to blame and nobody else. Abhor that which is evil but cleave to that which is good by God. See only what God has seen and do not see what God has not seen.

God has no business with sin. It is because of sin that punishment has come to the world. Everything in this world is going to be destroyed one by one. What a man sows, that shall he reap. (Gal 6:7). You have been told that this year those who served God will enjoy.

They will receive their reward. They will have peace and prosperity. Whether you are in Europe or America or India, or wherever you are, once you keep the injunctions of God, you have equal right to receive the benefits. Whether you are a man or woman, infant or adult, free or bond, once you wash your garment clean, and keep the commandment of God, you have the right to all the blessings of God.

Those who destroy the earth will be destroyed also. Do not make mention of church denomination at all. Do not ask what church a person is attending. Talk about refraining from sins. Whether a person is a pastor, or bishop or founder of a church denomination, tell him to practice the word of God and forsake sin, to desist from discrimination so that he may have right to the tree of life, and enter in through the gates into the city.

This path-clearing does not relate to money. If it related to money our Lord Jesus Christ would not have told that rich person, go and sell all that thou have, give the money to the poor, come back and follow me and you will be rich in heaven. (Matthew 19:21/Luke 18:22).

You are witnesses to the amount of money spent here daily. Take the Nigerian Television Authority, and Cross River Radio as examples among many others. The money paid out to them is enormous. If money reservation were to be the important factor do you think such monies would be paid out to people? Calculate the amount spent on feasts, response to invitations, and other things. If money were to be of prime importance, why would those things be done?

Song is interesting. Prayer, testimony and other things are good, but the most interesting, is to point out to the people what they have committed against the directives of God. Tell the world that God has commanded them to refrain from all evil things. You too should keep this injunction.

Attending prayer houses profits a little. But the most profitable is for you to enter into market and streets to tell people to refrain from sins, not to prepare concoction, not to take any injection, not to impute sins on any person, and not to hate. Preach to everybody, in your office, and everywhere do the same. Do not dispute or quarrel over what church you attend or the validity of your message, leave him and go your way but do not relent in telling people their mistakes.

Ninety-nine percent of those in Brotherhood came so that they should have money or receive aid for certain things. It means that their eyes are still darkened and they do not understand themselves. Even those who say there is money and power in Brotherhood, their eyes are not yet opened. Brotherhood does not concern itself on such issues. Ours is how to forsake sins so that we may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gate into the city, and how to make our garments clean. That is why it is meant for every person to abstain from all manners of sins.

You will not enter in twos. No one will be allowed to enter with his wife or with his child. You will have to enter on individual basis. If you wash your garment clean and spotless you will enter, without which you will not enter. Do not look on to any person. Do not look at the member, or church leader. Look on to the word of God preached to you, because a lot of people have eyes but cannot see, they have ears but do not hear and hearts but cannot perceive.

Pray that the Father should open your eyes. It is a great surprise that you can stay with somebody for twenty years but you neither know the person, nor what he wants, nor what he has taught you, nor his specific assignment. Is it not pitiful?

Do you think that what I am doing here is my own duty? I have the assignment I have come to do. What I am doing now is the work of mercy. It is because of mercy that I have taken upon myself to do quite a different duty in order to help you.

The kingdom of God does not admit any sin, no matter how small. Anger does not enter. Woes do not enter. Tongue-wagging you in delight does not enter. The Holy Spirit does not require falsehood, pomposity, arrogance, deceit, backbiting, or any of the mundane things. Inform the people of the world that why they, and even you, are beset with problems is due to sin that they persist in.

There is neither juju, nor apparition, nor mermaid, nor witchcraft. But it is because of your refusal to abstain from sins that the world is faced with problems. The Kingdom you are seeing is for the entire world. It is said that this Kingdom shall be taken away from you and given to a nation that will bear good fruits. (Matthew 21:43). Leave a man to his ways.

There is one teacher, one adviser, one God, one Lord and one Spirit. He is teaching you. He is teaching all the inhabitants of the world. When the gates of mercy are not yet closed, let us seize this opportunity to get ourselves ready. Whatever God shuts there is no one to open. Whatever he opens, no person can shut. His love is sufficient unto all of you. (2 Corinthians 12:9).

If your eyes were open, you would have known that this is the time when every person seeks to serve God. God does not delight in the death of sinners. He does not wish that any of us should perish. Whoever perishes does so because of his failure to wash his garment clean.

There is no other medium through which God can serve any person. The medium is that when the gospel is preached to you, you have to listen, assimilate, and put into practice and be saved.

The Holy Spirit has neither part nor portion in anything sinful. God has nothing to do with anything sinful. Our Lord Jesus Christ has nothing to do with anything that defiles.

But now, with whom do you stand? Whom do you resemble? You may claim, I know Brotherhood, I am a full-fledged member, but you are quarrelling, fornicating, telling lies, stealing and deceiving. Who is your leader?

The second lesson will now be read. Listen attentively to what is going to be read to you.

Second Bible Lesson: Revelation 21:27

“And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie; but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”

Brethren, can you see the city we are talking about? How many people will enter into that city we are talking about? If a declaration should be made today that you should march into the city, how many people here will enter? Can you not see that He is not slack in fulfilling His promise but He has been long-suffering towards us since he does not wish that you and I should perish. He wants us to repent. He wants you to go and tell this story to your mother, your father and to every person. Shout along the streets that the Lord has ordered that they should refrain from sin.

If things are like this with you inside here, can you not realize that the case of those outside is very deplorable? They wallow in fornication and all manners of sins and know not what is meant by sin. Yours is a bit better because you know what is called sin though you lack the ability to forsake sins. In their own case, they are ignorant.

If mention is made of sin, they will ask in amazement what is meant by that. They will state that they have not committed any sin. Even with his snuff box by his side, his charms and concoction around him, he will swear that he has not committed any sin. Theirs is blindness with open eyes.

If you alone receive salvation and all other members of your family perish, what is your benefit. If you are the only one saved in your village and all other members of your village perish because of your failure to tell them the truth, what is your benefit?

It is for this reason that Our Lord Jesus Christ says; “And for their sake I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.” (John 17:19). For your family’s sake, sanctify yourself, forsake fornication, drinking, lying, deceit and all vices so that you may also sanctify them by preaching this truth to them.

Pouring of libation is a grievous sin. Those who continue to pour libation will never enter. All those who cling tenaciously to tradition will also not enter. This is a new world, that of Jehovah God and His Christ. He alone reigns. No other thing reigns. No other thing operates apart from the word of God.

The text tells us that nothing that defiles shall enter. Is your tradition not drinks, goats, fowls, snuff and libation, where you sacrifice and smear blood on your bodies? How will you enter? We do not eat meat. We do not kill animals. We do not kill or eat fishes. But the world requires fishes and meat. Tell me how they will enter.

Fish is very good thing but it defiles the flesh; it defiles your garment. Animals are very good things but eating meat defiles your garment and disqualifies you from entering. More so, those things are only good enough for the flesh.

Our Lord Jesus Christ did not come to save this flesh but to redeem your soul, your spirit. He is not a carnal King but the King of the Spirit. The Bible does not tell you that flesh and blood will inherit the Kingdom of God. (l Corinthians 15:50). It is for this reason that we have to mortify the flesh that the spirit may triumph.

Neither the necklace nor trinket you hang, nor clothes that you wear, nor English language that you speak will take you into the Kingdom of God. I have led you to the accurate wisdom of truth. Let each and everyone of us purify ourselves in our words, looks, thoughts, perception, hearing, actions, and in everything so that we may be worthy.

Everyday you are engaged in launching. Do what you can and leave what you cannot. Those things do not qualify you for the Kingdom. God says, let he who has, help him who has not. (Luke 3:11). What the Father has not given you, do not go to steal or insist on vainly. We are not indebted to God to go and do that which does not give glory to Him. Before God sends you on an errand, He goes before you and accomplishes that assignment. You only bear witness to His work. He is the one who sends forth and joins you in doing the work.

God cannot be angry with you because you have not participated in any launching, when He has not given you the money. He cannot impose a levy or fine for your lack of contribution in a launching. How will He fine you? Had He given you the money? God is not as stupid as that. The only thing He has said is that, to whom much is given, much also is required of him. (Luke 12:48).

This is the period we have to use all our resources in the service of God so that we may be pure in spirit and in flesh. He now wants us to mobilize all the talents He had given to us, before the foundations of the world were laid, for His services so that we may have right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gate into the city.

It is not the time for one to boast that he is a millionaire, that he has money, that he is highly educated, or beautiful, or that he has children. That time had long passed. He had said in Isaiah, Chapter 2, “The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the Lord alone shall be exalted.” (Isa 2:11). Is that scripture not fulfilled?

If your eyes were opened, and it were revealed to you what God has come to do in the end of time, you would have taken to your heels and abandoned sins completely for the service of God. If you should also know what plans God has for us in that city, if you should enter in through the gate into the city, Brethren, there is nothing in this world that you will look for apart from fighting to enter that city. Do you think it is out of nothing that He lays so much emphasis on our passing through the gates into the city?

You had heard about the portion read to you in Ezekiel 36:24-37. The work is enormous. Before man becomes what God wants, there is great work to be done. People do not understand why it is said that we want to build a city of our own. Maybe you feel it is for picnicking, and enjoyment. There is great work for God to do in us before we become what He wants. His promises are fulfilled. If you read through the passage, you will realize His promise for the children of God.

You are told not to beat your children but you are still doing it. You are told not to divorce your wife but you still do. Do not commit fornication but you commit. Do not marry more than one wife, but you are marrying. Is it implied that “C” had been written on your forehead? If it had so been written, why did God elect you into his Kingdom?

The children of God hear the word of God. You do not hear because you are not the children of God. Do not allow these words to be fulfilled in you. All the inhabitants of this world hang their hopes on this kingdom. There are some who have not yet seen this Kingdom but they are prepared for it. They neither quarrel, nor marry, nor fight, nor tell lies. They are vegetarians. They do not look for any mundane thing but steadfastly await this Kingdom. The only thing is that if you are waiting for God in this His Kingdom, you have to live the good life that He has taught you.

He has come with a host of angels, saints and children, enormous wealth and glory. He has come to straighten all that had become crooked, change our nature, repair all that had been damaged in us and make us worthy in all things and be as He is. Submit yourself unto God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Why not obey His instruction? Why not practice His instruction? Why not live peaceably with all men? Why can you not live without spot and remain blameless? Why not stop quarrelling and fighting? Try these and see if you will not see Him in your life.

When you stay in the dark to commit an evil deed, no person will see you. But when you commit a similar evil in the open, will you not be seen? If you are the chairman in any fellowship, when you were removed as the chairman, you begin to play pranks and campaign from house to house that you should be reinstated, is that the spirit of this Kingdom of God? No person has a part to play or influence to exert. God does everything.

This Kingdom is not a bona fide property of Cross River State or Nigeria, or Africa, or Western or Eastern world. It does not belong to a particular individual, but whoever shall bring forth its fruits, wash his garment clean, shall enter in through the gate into the city.

Search and you will find out that Brotherhood does not require money, or member, or recognition from any person, but it wants every person to forsake sins completely. Brotherhood does not require visions or healing. You are healed with your roguery, stealing, fornication and murder. What is the use of this? If you heal a murderer and he goes to commit murder, the blood of the victim will be upon the healer.

You had heard that Moses restored sight to one blind man. After sometime, the man went and killed somebody. He later killed a second person. When he wanted to kill a third person, people went and reported to Moses that the man he had restored vision to, was going about killing every person. For this reason, Moses sent for him.

When he saw Moses, he was joyous that he had seen his master. Moses told him to kneel down that they might give thanks to God. When the man knelt down, Moses said, “Father, forgive me for what I did. Let his blindness return. The man became blind again”. What the blind man did is what we are doing in the world.

When you award scholarship to somebody, what does he do with it? He indulges in fornication and causes trouble in the world. You employ somebody so that she will be intimate with a person’s husband or even snatch him, and cause trouble. You prepare concoction, and drink. What are you going to do for whoever is sinful. Whenever you want to do any good thing to a sinner, it will rather be to cause trouble in the world. This is why God values those who serve Him.

If there is any person who surrenders himself unto God and serves Him, the glory of God on earth will be magnified by that reformed person. The sort of children that God will give to the person will be children of God, working for the glory of God. Any house that he has will be dedicated for the service of God. Any amount of money that enters his hands is used for the service of God. Any city he is given to watch over, he does so with the fear of God. In any school that the person is found, he will cause every one of the school community to know God. Any husband she marries, must be made to know God. Any wife he marries, must be made to know God. What good thing will you do to derive any profit from any person who is a murderer, thief, fornicator, swindler? When you do good things to him, he will continue to use them to work evil.

It is for this reason that you are told that time is very short and I cannot tell you the actual minute, hour, day, month or year. But I want every person to repent and render services to God. The golden text will now be read.

Golden Text: 2 Peter 3:14

“Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.”

Brethren, have you heard that? All those waiting for the Kingdom of God must be diligent that they may be found of him in peace, without spot and blameless. Now that you are staying in the house, office, church and you are flippant about useless things, whom are you waiting for? All those who behave this way do not know themselves. But you know yourself. It is your duty to cause others to know what is happening.

All those who seek for the coming of the Lord, should wait in peace, without spot and blameless before Him. You ask God to give you everything. If you want God, He has arrived at your doorstep.

All things are done by God. I have paid for the first quarter of the NTA programme. I will also pay for other quarters. Do you see me worrying about it? In many other things we do, I do not disturb you about the money. My concern is that you should change and refrain from sin so that you may enjoy this glory.

But you stay around here to cause trouble. Not even a mite of yours is used. No good thing comes from you. You only insist in doing evil yet you claim you are a Brotherhood and Olumba’s first son. What about the second son? Must he continue to cause trouble in this Kingdom?

The certificate required in this Kingdom is to forsake sins. Food is here. All requirements are here. Forget about falling sick, loneliness, poverty, and food. Refrain from sin and dwell in peace, without spot and blameless. In this Kingdom, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit reigns.

I am not ruling, you are not ruling. You and I should live in peace with every person, without spot and blameless before Him. You cannot cause trouble in this Kingdom. Where will the trouble come from? This is the Kingdom of God. You are not called in here to fight, tricks, fornicate, quarrel and cause trouble. You are invited to repent.

When we shall march to the city, where will the trouble-makers be? That is how things are done in this Kingdom of God. When you were informed years ago that you should come and bless your marriages, a service which did not cost any money, so that when I covenant it into what it should be, you would not regret that you were running away.

What is the situation now? In like manner, the gates in the city are thrown wide open. If you do not enter that city because your garment is not clean, you will be asked by outsiders: “you attended Brotherhood, did you enter the city?” What answer will you give them?

Use this chance to receive this teaching. Do not regard this place as your vono bed, where you come to sleep and relax. When songs are rendered, you will be sleeping. During gospels, you are sleeping. The only time you wake up is when food is shared. Such practice ends here in Calabar.

In that city it is said that if one is left with any dot of sin that person will not enter. This is why I weep and wail and mourn. I am weeping even right now because of this. Because at first I had thought that people like the interpreter, because of his interpretation, would enter; but I was told he cannot enter. I asked that Pastor Essien Umo, who is interpreting should be allowed in. But, I was told, “No.”

At first I thought that since you have come to Brotherhood and have faced false allegations and calumnies, you should be allowed in. But the message reaching me this morning counters that hope. What is required is perfection. If you are left with any vestige of sin, be it anger, you will not go near, much less enter. For this reason, I have been very weak since morning. I asked whether Apostle V.E. Ekpenyong will enter, and I was told, “No.” The reply was that since they have not repented, it is not possible for them to enter. I also asked whether Snr. Student Ukpong E. Akpan who is the Choirmaster General will enter. I was told that he will not enter. It is for this reason that all those who hope on Him should be found by Him in peace without spot and blameless. You have to look for a black goat when it is not yet night. When the die is cast, and it shall be reported that you were told, you will not enter. Call yourself the first son of Obu, the first daughter of Obu, the father of Obu, Obu himself, you will not enter. Little wonder why Paul said, “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: Lest that by any means when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” (l Cor 9:27). Each of you have brought your brother or sister, preached the gospel, and done many other things. Right from now, seize this golden opportunity to save yourself by practicing the word of God. If you do not practice the word of God, you will not enter.

Because today the records of the deeds of all the inhabitants of the world were placed before me, the sins they commit from day to day are carefully recorded against their names, and at the end, it was seen that no person was worthy.

That is why I now feel very weak. I begin to wonder about the pretty faces all around. Who then shall inherit that city? Per chance people will come from places far away, may be from Europe, America and other places. I will weep and wail seriously.

At the same time it is never too late to mend. You can begin to mend your ways and re-direct your life. Go and preach this gospel everywhere. Preach it to the governor, Prime Minister, millionaire, church denominations.

Tell all sorts of men how I am shedding tears and give them the instruction on what they should do.

You thought that we are saved by grace. I had thought that since you were cursed and abused with false allegations, that those were enough grounds for you to be saved. I was told, “no;” that righteousness is the parameter. One bad apple spoils the rest.

If you allow one evil man into the midst of righteous people, he will confuse the rest.

Because it is pleasing in the sight of God that you should enter this Kingdom, that is why he has sent this message to you now.

It is said, a stroke of the cane is sufficient unto the wise. We do not intend to be tedious unto you. Those who have ears, let them hear. May God bless His Holy Words. A-men!
