THE ROYAL FAMILY

FIRST LESSON: HEBREWS 12:28

Wherefore we receive a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and Godly fear.

SECOND LESSON: ROMANS 4:3-4

For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto Him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

GOLDEN TEXT: MATTHEW 20:20

Then came to Him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping Him, and desiring a certain thing of Him.

THE CHILDREN OF GOD ARE BORN:

Beloved, does man think that the Kingdom of God is acquired through violence, or does he think the Kingdom of God is a strange land, where only great people go? Does he believe that God has no family? Let it be known that God has a family. The title, ‘ROYAL’ which the worldly kings and queens claim for their families is derived from God’s royal family, the only true royal family.

If someone gives you a vision that you will backslide from this fold, do not bother yourself, for whatever was written about you stands. Nothing can take it away. If you are of God’s family, no one can take your position. All things are given to man from above, not according to his good works, righteousness, wisdom or power. You are not blessed because of your beauty, academic or spiritual attainment.

Recall what Our Lord Jesus Christ told the mother of the two sons of Zebedee. He told her that her two sons may drink of His cup and undergo His type of baptism, but to sit with Him on His left and right hand, in His Father’s kingdom is not His decision to make, but a prerogative of His Father. For those to be there were already predestined by His Father (See Matthew 20:20 for detail). Stop struggling and hustling for possessions and position in the Kingdom of God, for God has a family. Every person is destined for one thing or the other, be it wealth and/or rank.

You are not elected to any post because you can speak the English language fluently, or that you know how to play the game of politics. Those who are of the family of God are born naturally as God’s children. The children of God and the family of God were not made, but born. The children of God are not introduced through vision or prophecy, neither is it by voting.

You may be a great visionary, yet you may not be called. If you are not of the family of God, you cannot be given a position in His kingdom, no matter your wisdom, wealth or power. If you know that you are not of God’s kingdom, do not worry yourself, be contented with the position you have.

Now take a look at the position of the queen of England. Does it mean that there are no other women more educated, beautiful or even taller than her in England? Were there no men for such a position? It may interest you to know that the queen inherited her position from her family. Put differently, the position of the queen of England is hereditary. No matter how wealthy, educated, or beautiful you may be, you cannot be appointed to that post, unless you are of that family.

In the same way, God has His family. This explains why He often declares at the end of each sermon that those who have ears should hear. Those who have the ears to hear are the children of God. Only people of God’s family hear and understand His words (See John 8:47).

All the instructions of God are for His children. God is particularly concerned about His family. However, you have to consolidate your position. Do not allow any person to deceive you with carnal ideas. Do not accept when people tell you that if you do one thing or the other, God will place you in a certain position.

This kingdom is not acquired through works, but by destiny. God had predestined all things before the foundations of the world were laid. Now, you are not expected to worry about having faith in Him, for He is the giver and controller of faith. If he wants you to believe in Him, He gives you the ability. Everything has already been arranged. No one in the entire world has an idea. Why would mankind not understand God, and neither believe in Him? Who is man, to say that God cannot be a human being? You do not know what or who God is, which explains the reason why you do not know whether He has a family. You do not know who the Almighty God is!

The problems between the Moslems and Christians emanate from spiritual ignorance. The Moslems claim to be the real descendants of Abraham and the true worshippers of God (ALLAH). Their claim to be the heirs of Abraham stems from the birth of Ishmael. They are contending that since Abraham’s maid gave birth to Ishmael, he is the first son of Abraham. This, by natural law of birth and heritage is correct. However, the spiritual law supersedes that of the flesh.

Now, Abraham and Sarah are spiritually of the same parenthood. They are of the same father – God. They are therefore of God’s family. So the promise of God to Abraham was to be fulfilled through the birth of Isaac, who spiritually is of the same family. Hagar was from Egypt and could not have been from that family of God. If she is not of the family of God, how then could her son become a child of God?

Do you think that was Abraham’s only child? There were others, yet they were not recorded, because they were not of God’s family. Those were children he begot from concubines. In the case of Isaac, Sarah, his mother, and Abraham, his father, were of the same Father, but different mothers. So he, Isaac was the child of promise for them. Those who struggle for things here, should be warned that such unbecoming attitude does not do any good.

THE ORIGIN OF THE ENGAGEMENT RING:

If you like, you may establish a hundred churches, several prayer houses. or healing homes, but what is not for you, cannot be given to you. That was why, when Abraham was about to sleep in the Lord, he ordered his slaves to go to his hometown and bring a wife from there for Isaac. He warned them not to take any woman from any ‘Strange’ land for his son, Isaac. That was to say, that they should not take any woman from another tribe, but his own tribe and family.

Abraham’s servants conferred to their master their problems, which included their inability to trace his hometown. This was due to the fact that Abraham had left his hometown for over forty years and had not visited since then. However, Abraham told them that the angel of the Lord would lead them.

Abraham’s servants were led to Abraham’s hometown, in fact, his family. When they got there, they first met the destined wife for Isaac. Rebecca was standing at the well. They demanded water to drink, also for their cattle. She obliged them. After drinking, they discovered that it was late in the evening and they needed a place to pass the night. This, they made known to Rebecca and she invited them to her family’s house, where they met her parents. Because of Rebecca’s hospitality, Abraham’s servants showed interest in her.

In the course of introducing themselves, Abraham’s servants realized that Rebecca was Isaac’s first cousin, for her father was Abraham’s brother. Thus, they quickly revealed their mission to them. They accepted the proposal and it was consecrated by the engagement ring (a golden ring) which they were given by Abraham. This is the origin of the engagement ring. And the following day, the servants left with Rebecca as Isaac’s wife. It was not an accidental marriage. but God’s predestined affair (for full details, read Genesis 24:1-51).

The same is true of Jacob, when he was to take a wife. His mother instructed him to go to his fatherland and take a wife. He heeded the advice and ended up marrying a girl from his mother’s family, who was of God’s family. So. the family of God was also established in his own case. How Jacob ended up marrying two blood sisters was a case of circumstance. He had wanted to marry Rachel, the second daughter of Laban, but the tradition was that the first daughter must be married before the second.

Secondly, the suitor had to work for the father-in-law seven years before he could get the girl. So, at the end of the seven years, he demanded Rachel, to be given to him in marriage, but a big surprise awaited him.

Laban told him that the first seven years was for Leah, the first daughter. who, by custom, must first get married. He further told Jacob, that for him to have Rachel, he had to work for another seven years, which he did. At the end, the two sisters were given to him for marriage. And in fulfillment of her destiny, Rachel gave birth to Joseph, a one-time governor in Egypt. It may interest you. as Jacob married Leah and Rachel, one maid each was given to them, making a total of four women, who eventually became Jacob’s wives. In other words, Jacob married the four women and they all bore children for him. Though Joseph was not born early, but his growth and power revealed that the children of God are destined.

It is written thus:

For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments (Exodus 20:5-6).

Jacob had many other children, but those who came from the family of God were Joseph and Benjamin, who were both of the same mother. Let it be known to you that Rebecca, the mother of Jacob, Elizabeth the mother of John the Baptist and Mary, the mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ, were all of the same family. They are all of God’s family and were the greatest among people. Recall what Our Lord Jesus Christ said about John the Baptist, that among all men that are born of women, none is greater than him. He however said, that the least in the Kingdom of God (referring to Himself) is greater than Him (See Matthew 11:11).

Do you think that God does not see or know what is happening on Earth? Belonging to the family of God is not monetary achievement, neither is it achieved by academic excellence, but by the divine will of God. This is why it is written in Romans, Chapter Nine, Verse Sixteen, thus:

So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy.

God knows all things and knows those who are His. If you have read the book entitled, “Jehovah, God in Human Form”, you would have had a deeper understanding of the genealogy of the family of God. You cannot understand this with worldly knowledge. If you really want to know the way of God, you have to forget about your academic attainment and any mundane philosophy. Were it possible for Satan to inherit this kingdom, he would have inherited it. He had tried with all his powers, but it was not destined for him. But now, it has pleased God, the creator of all things to come and establish His kingdom on Earth. There are many mansions in His eternal kingdom. So wherever you find yourself, be happy and contented.

ALLOW THE WILL OF GOD TO PREVAIL:

When you ask God to give you something, thereby not allowing His will to manifest, you may receive the wrong gift, for everything is predestined. Take the case of the children of Israel, when they were led out of the bondage, from the Egyptians. They asked Samuel, the priest to give them a king. They so disturbed him that he became offended. However, God consoled him and pushed Saul to them as a king. Saul was not of God’s family, and he brutally dealt with the Israelites.

You may need to know that Saul did not enjoy the throne till the end, since it was not meant for him. On the other hand, David, who was from the destined house of God, enjoyed the kingly throne when he ascended. God revealed to Samuel to go to the house of Jesse, for a king had been chosen from that house for Israel. Samuel went there and related his mission to Jesse. Jesse paraded all his grownup male children before Samuel, but God did not choose any. He never imagined how God could take little David in preference to the grownups. Jesse told Samuel that he had no more children for a presentation. However, Samuel asked whether those were all the male children he had. Jesse replied that the last, called David, was a mere child who knew nothing. Samuel insisted that he should be brought. Once David stepped out, the Spirit descended on him. He was then and there chosen. Saul was a mundane chief, not ordained of God, since he did not come from the family of God. He was only reaping what he did not sow. You must have read how Saul and his two sons were killed one day (1 Samuel 31:1-6). Now you only hear of King David. This is because the house of Saul was wiped out.

God actually has a family. You can even see that Our Lord Jesus Christ came of the House of David; traceable to Jesse from the Tribe of Judah. At this juncture, I remember the statement of one lawyer, who asked the accusers of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star to leave Obu and His work. For if He is of God, He will stand the test of time, else He will be rooted up. Anything that does not come from God cannot last, so do not worry yourself about anything on Earth. That was why Our Lord Jesus Christ said that any tree not planted by His heavenly Father will be uprooted (Matthew 15:13). And the Father has come to do just that. He has come to uproot all alien plants which were not planted by Him. Now the kingship position belongs to the Royal family.

No amount of tricks can place you on any throne. Also, there is no type of mundane wisdom, or craftiness that can sustain you in any illegal position. So nobody should be disturbed about anything. Recall the statement of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Did He not promise to come and take dominion on Earth? There is nothing He said which He did not accomplish, or which cannot come to fulfillment. And this is that eternal kingdom, which He promised His people. This is the kingdom of the Almighty God and His Christ. By His coming to the Earth and taking dominion over all creations, the world and indeed the entire universe will be in perfect peace. Do not be afraid, neither should you doubt any more.

No man or spirit can seize what belongs to you, no matter how hard he tries. Now the churches of Christendom are not missing their yearly visits to Israel and to Mount Sinai. They hope that by going to pray on the very mountain that Christ transfigured, they would acquire the power and right of sonship of God. They think that membership in God’s family depends on these rites. They have failed woefully.

Take Elijah, Samuel and the rest of the patriarchs who reigned in Israel. They were sent by God, yet they were not ordained as kings and so could not reign as such. The king of kings was ordained by God. Who was Joseph of Arimathea, who buried the body of Our Lord Jesus Christ? Recall that all His disciples ran away. No one went out, for fear of being killed. Yet Joseph of Arimathea went to the authorities and pleaded to bury the body of Our Lord Jesus, the Christ. He took pains to wrap Him with a clean linen and buried Him in a tomb where no corpse had ever been buried. It was this same Joseph of Arimathea who took the Infant Jesus and helped with the escape to Egypt, when the war to prevent Him from ruling was very fierce. Joseph of Arimathea was of God’s family.

All that was written about God’s creations shall come to consummation. Stop praying for one thing and/or the other, but wait for the fulfillment of the promises of God upon His children. Everything that was hidden will be revealed, because the light itself has come. He has come to unfold all hidden things. Any person who does not come from the family of God, cannot do good works, because God is God. God is equally the truth, life, meekness, love, righteousness, humility and all other virtues. A son, therefore, must resemble his father. You cannot acquire anything here through your wealth, or position in the world.

KINGSHIP IS HEREDITARY:

Those who claim to be popes, bishops and other dignitaries have ended up not practicing God’s teachings. What they do is suppress others and cheat them out of their money.

This they do, because they are not of God’s family. They force the children of God to derail from the way of God. They are claiming what they are not, they are not of God’s family. This was why the genealogy of Our Lord Jesus Christ was prophesied by an angel before His birth.

Angel Gabriel did inform Mary that she would bear a son who shall be called Jesus. The same he said, shall be great and shall take the throne of his father, David. His kingship shall be forever (Luke 1:30-33). However, when Our Lord Jesus Christ came, He therefore could not get physically enthroned.

Our Lord Jesus Christ did not worry about mundane ceremonies. He knew that He should suffer first. That was why He asked whether it was not expedient for the Son of Man to suffer first, before He mounts His Father’s throne? When He had completed His assignment, He knew it was time for His glory. For this reason, He prayed that the Father should give Him the glory which He preserved for Him, before the foundations of the world were laid (John 17:1-5). Now you can understand, that all your quarrels, fighting for positions or possessions are in vain, and in fact, out of ignorance.

This is the time for all glory and thanks to be given to whom they belong. This is the era of His glory. Why then do human beings complain that the glory is great? Let it be known to you that there is nothing you can do now to change the situation.

See the first lesson below.

FIRST LESSON: HEBREWS 12:28

Wherefore we receive a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and Godly fear.

BE APPRECIATIVE:

Beloved, we have come into this kingdom to show a thankful heart, and praise God. We have not come to preach, or express our wisdom. We have to believe and have faith in Him. Do anything you know to magnify the glory of the living God. We have to express love, peace, mercy and humility. These are the qualities of God’s children. As you express your gratitude to God, you are promoting His glory among men. It is for this reason that John the Baptist testified that Christ must increase, while He decreases (See John 3:27-30). Like John the Baptist, we should rejoice in His arrival. For as many as receive Him and are glad in His visitation, are blessed. They shall all have their joy fulfilled.

Rejoice, for you are in the Kingdom of God. He has brought the kingdom and has already called you in. You are only asked to show appreciation for what He has done. Whatever therefore is done here is out of a thankful heart. That is why we do not impose levies on members for any reason. You are not called into this kingdom by your wealth, beauty, or wisdom. You may be deformed, homely, short or tall, yet you find yourself here. Once you were destined to enter into this kingdom, you will be called in, no matter your status or stature. Nobody can ever seize what is yours, as long as it was destined for you.

Our God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient. Therefore, nothing can take Him by surprise. No wisdom or power is above His. Why then should someone threaten you with visions or prophecies? Simply reply to such a visionary that we have a kingdom which nothing can shake in Heaven or Earth. So our job is to rejoice, showing a thankful heart to God.

Read the second lesson again.

SECOND LESSON: ROMANS 4:3-4

For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto Him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

A SETTLED DEBT:

This kingdom is given to us free, just because we believe in Him. It could be traced to the story of the prodigal son. After wasting the entire wealth handed over to him by his father, he repented. Realizing his folly, he asked himself, why he should subject himself to such torture when his father’s servants were well taken care of. He decided to go back to his father, to plead for forgiveness. As he went back, his father saw him from afar and ran toward him. He embraced his son, took him home and ordered that he be clothed in fine clothes. A big feast was celebrated for his return (Luke 15:11-24).

This is exactly what will happen to all the children of God in this era. Once you turn to God, He is ready to welcome you and endow you with power, position and possession. A time is coming and indeed very soon, when all will see what God had planned for His people. The type of joy awaiting the children of God is indescribable. This is the Kingdom of God, where no one is cheated or discriminated against. Do not heed those who are waiting for God to come from the sky, but believe that God is already in our midst. Therefore, rejoice and be happy singing praises to God always.

The church dignitaries and rich people of the world claim to be worshipping the real God, whom they expect from the clouds. They build houses and cathedrals with gold and other costly materials, yet they do not believe in God. They accuse members of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star of worshipping a human being, instead of God. Because you are not ashamed of worshipping a man and have implicit faith in God, you are blessed. You will certainly reap the fruits of your labor. For the Almighty God whom you worship, whom is dwelling in you, and in whom you believe, will provide all your needs.

This kingdom has been given to you gratis, but those who claim to be wise in the world will regret it. As they are watching the sky, the sun rays will blind them. And by the time they look down, they will not see anything. Abraham did not become the friend of God by watching the sky, or by wealth. He became God’s friend and the father of nations because he had faith in God. All children of God have faith in God and are covered by the grace of the Almighty.

No one enters into this kingdom except he who is a child of God. It is extremely difficult, and in fact impossible, for one who is not a destined child of God, to believe in God. This is why the worldly people say that Brotherhood members are worshipping a human being. Only the children of this kingdom know and believe in their Father.

We were not called because of our good works, but because we were destined to be here, coupled with the fact that we do have faith in God, the Father. Right now, all those who were unemployed are gainfully employed. They are rewarded for everything they do here. Your kneeling down, singing, dancing and even bowing are fully rewarded.. . and salvation already written for you, has come to fulfillment.

You cannot pay someone to gain salvation, or entry into this kingdom. All those who were destined to come in, gain the entry, gratis. All that is required of you is to believe in God. The unbaptized members complain that we are not worthy of this kingdom. We know that we are not worthy, but it has pleased our Father to call us into His kingdom. Unfortunately, those who presume that they are worthy, are not called and cannot come.

BEWARE OF SOME VISIONS:

The children of this kingdom are properly schooled. Whether you are preaching, prophesying or giving visions, know what to say, for no child of God can be deceived.

When one gives a vision that the Father has come with angels to watch over people, is one directed by His spirit? Who are those who need to be watched in the Kingdom of God? He did promise to forgive and forget all the sins of His children and that He will teach all of them, from the least to the greatest (Hebrews 8:10-12). This promise is now fulfilled in the children of God. Angels themselves fear, adore and worship Him.

THE ERA OF JOY:

This is not the era of spiritual war, which warrant some visionaries to reveal such in their visions. God has fought His war and conquered all. This explains why He dropped His former name, “Jesus,” indicating that He has completed that assignment on the cross. Now He is called the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. This is the era of joy. All knees must bow unto Him. All beings must worship Him.

Hebrews 1:6 states:

And again, when he bringeth in the first-begotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship Him.

In His case, who can challenge Him or become a stumbling block to you? This is the kingdom of joy, freedom and liberty. It is only in the world that people have visions of doom. Here, we are saved by grace, in accordance with God’s promise (See John 1:12). Wherever you go, all angels worship you; so there is no stumbling block on your way.

The Triune God is in full operation in the universe, both spiritually, physically and otherwise. So there is no external force that can disturb you. The children of God say that this is the long expected time. The angels proclaim that the end of time has come, but Satan says there is still much time. Let him fix his time, if he can.

This is our time to rejoice with our God, in His kingdom. Whatever is your stature or status, or sex, is immaterial. As long as you are His, your time to rejoice has come. Bring forth anything you have, but if you do not have anything, let your conscience be clear. No matter your status in life, and no matter your numerous sins, once you believe in Him, this is your era of joy. You have no problems, for this is the new Heaven and new Earth wherein dwells righteousness (2nd Peter 3:13).

SHUN NEGATIVE VISIONS:

Why should visionaries tell you that witchcraft is done against you? Where do those things exist, and what elementary power does not fear and worship God?

There is no negativity in this kingdom. So do not listen to those visionaries. A visionary who reveals an accident to you, is telling you an imaginary story. This is because no one can successfully plan an accident, when your Father is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient.

Neither knife, sword, gun or any weapon made by man, can harm any member of this fold. These things can successfully frighten the worldly people, who do not possess the Holy Spirit. A visionary who gives such visions to Brotherhood of the Cross and Star members is only exhibiting his ignorance. Even Satan and his agents know that no destructive weapon can harm any true Brotherhood member.

The glory derived from this kingdom is everlasting and this kingdom is an eternal kingdom. All those who believe in God and rejoice with Him shall remain under this great umbrella forever. Your state of birth, or your status in life cannot influence God’s choice over you as His child. All you have to do is repent and rejoice in His visitation.

HOLD ONTO YOUR POSITION:

This kingdom has everything one can think of. The spiritual, physical and material benefits of this world and even beyond are assembled here. In fact, they are in surplus. Just as ‘Bian Aneyen Evai Biakpan sang in their song, there are enough rooms in the Kingdom of God, and every person has his own glory and position. So do not bother about another person’s position, rather hold fast and keep your position. There are those at the forefront, those behind, and those at the left and right. He knows everyone and calls each person by name till the end of time. However, if He has not called you, it will be impossible for you to enter into, or inherit this kingdom.

No one comes here by wisdom, wealth, power or any type of mundane manipulation. You cannot come on your own volition, but must be called. You only enter by faith, which of course is the resultant effect of your destiny. Only the children of God believe in God, their Father. All those who have strived to forsake sins and those who have tried to do good, the ability was not given to them. But the children are having their desires fulfilled and have developed faith in Him. For once you believe in Him, He takes over your burdens and meets your age-long desires. He takes care of you and finally changes you for good. All these things He does gratis.

This is the kingdom of love, unity, goodness and joy, wherein righteousness dwells. Do not allow any person to deceive you, or frighten you by visions, or prophecy. The Father exists in multiple forms. He is overwhelmingly present in all creatures. So, nothing evil can harm you. Therefore, know that you are completely free and liberated. What you cannot do. due to the weariness of your flesh, your faith in Him has accomplished that for you.

This is the unshakable kingdom which cannot be terminated by any force, visible or invisible. Do not, therefore, believe any false vision. Recall when Our Lord Jesus Christ ministered on Earth. A city of the Samaritans once refused Him and His disciples passage to Jerusalem. James and John, in annoyance, asked Christ that they be allowed to command fire from above to consume the entire city. However, Christ rebuked them and intimated to them that He came to save lives (See Luke 9:51-56). Our Lord Jesus Christ knew that His disciples were in the flesh, and so reminded them that His era cannot be compared with that of Elijah.

I want you to understand that the administration in the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is quite different from what man may cogitate. This is because some people do not understand the sensitive nature of this kingdom. Hence they make all sorts of vain and negative pronouncements. Such are elementary reasoning. God has come to rebuild the demolished places and to reconstruct what was destroyed. He has not come to destroy, but to change man to God.

The vain statements you make out of ignorance are what causes people to speak ill about God and Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. Why people infest you with mundane doctrines and elementary visions, is because of your relationship with other members. If you behave uprightly and truthfully with others, God will be glorified. God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient. and so does not need any help from anybody to build His Kingdom.

I want everybody to take note of this warning. If you are a visionary in Brotherhood, do not stand up to say whatever you like. God is not a God of confusion. Do not therefore, confuse or sadden His children with visions of doom. Those visions concerning angels with swords and other weapons to destroy the children of God, are not of this kingdom. Such are not directed by the spirit of this kingdom.

What is obtainable in this kingdom is love, truth, righteousness, peace and progress. If you are sick, you will be healed. If you die, you will be raised unto life. The poor become rich and all crooked ways become straightened. These are the works of life which are currently ongoing in this kingdom.

Recall the testimony of a reverend who was converted from the Roman Catholic religion. He testified that a Catholic Archbishop tried to kill him. The Reverend told him that no person can plan that, since he did not commit any offense against the Archbishop. On his second visit, he testified that the Archbishop received him very warmly. Any person who is truly a Brotherhood member and understands this fold cannot fear.

If you tell a Brotherhood member that a ghost lives in a house and no human being can live therein, a Brotherhood member will live there in peace. Visions that say that ghosts are after you, armed robbers are coming to attack you, etc., are false. Do not fear when you are told such tales, rather tell the visionary that you are ready for all these things. All spirits do know that Brotherhood members are above any attack, spiritually or physically.

Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is protecting the entire world. Whether one comes here or not, one is being protected. The grace and goodness from Brotherhood is sufficient for all races and creations of God. So let us spread this news of good tidings to the people of the world. Stop telling people stories that border on darkness. Most of those visions have no bearing with the tenets of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. They are of worldly spirits.

Whenever you visit a psychic or fortuneteller, he will say that you are very lucky to have visited him, because a rival spirit almost destroyed you. Such things do not happen to members of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. What the fortuneteller said is part of his trade, in order to get money from you. You may be a hundred percent healthy, but he can convince you that you are about to die. These things he says to you to obtain money from you.

Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is a place of freedom and joy. We talk of protection, promotion and love. Do not listen to the visionaries who are possessed of the mundane spirits of darkness. I have sent such elementary spirits out of you. Brotherhood members are untouchable and indestructible, and so you have nothing to fear. Dark forces do not exist anymore. This is the kingdom that should make you happy and contented, for all is well with you.

Read the golden text again.

GOLDEN TEXT: MATTHEW 20:20

Then came to Him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping Him, and desiring a certain thing of Him.

THE CHOSEN ONES:

You have read the text and have assimilated same. Henceforth, I do not want any Brotherhood of the Cross and Star member to indulge in vain talks such as, people hate me, people want to kill me, and so on’. This should not come either in your visions or prophecies. Nobody is against you and no one is planning evil against you. You are the one worrying yourself. Recall Sister Marts who was given a vision that she should go on ministry work to three stations, after that she should celebrate a full feast. This was to act as a buffer and sacrifice, so that her enemies may be taken away. When the Sister heard this, she retorted that she would not undertake such ministry work, neither would she celebrate the feast, for she has no enemies.

Up till this day, nothing has happened to her. Going on ministry work and celebrating a feast are good things to do, but to do them in order to avert a superstitious danger is not allowed. There is no truth in such visions and they are not of the spirit of truth, which is the spirit in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. Though the visionary may shout, do not believe if he tells you negative things.

No one can deceive a member of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star anymore. Recall the testimony of Apostle Bro-Bro. A renown occultist boasted before Bro-Bro that Heaven and Earth are in his palms. However, Bro-Bro, being a devotee of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, told him that Heaven, Earth and all planes of existence are controlled and vitalized by the Holy Father. To attest his authority, the man told Bro-Bro that rain would drench him that very day. However, Bro-Bro refuted that statement and told him that no single drop of rain would touch the ground for the next three days. That was the great bet, he boasted that by his powers, rain would fall that same day. Bro-Bro boasted that by his Father’s power, rain would not fall for three days.

The man rushed into his inner room and brought his mystic book. He performed all his rituals to command rain to fall, yet the sun was very bright. Not even rain clouds formed in the sky. He tried everything mystical and diabolical to invoke the angel that controls the rain, but all his efforts ended in a terrible fiasco. There were no drops of rain for three days as commanded by the Brotherhood child. Finally, the man accepted that he has seen a greater power than his. Now, I want everybody to resemble the Father who is here present.

Do not fear when you are told that an angel can harm you. Have you not read that all angels are commanded to worship the Son of God? You are free wherever you are, spiritually or physically. The Holy Spirit has taken dominion over all things. If you are a visionary, you have to watch your messages, so that you will not clash with the Holy Spirit. There is no death for any person here. Visionaries should stop telling people those things. This is the time of joy and peace. The Father is always with you even when you are on ministry work. Right now, the Father is working for those crusaders who are here with Him.

The kingdom is destined for those whom the Father chose from the beginning. You do not acquire it by wealth, wisdom or works. You do not come in by your power. You were destined to be here, and thus, the kingdom is given to you gratis. Where is Biakpan, Biase, Cross River State or Nigeria that should have merited this glory? This is an indication that He saves us free; out of His divine grace and love. You have to be in peace with all people. Purity your mind and do not bear malice against any person. Do not indulge in diabolical preparation of any kind. Such things do not have power, neither do they exist. They only exist imaginary. Do not commit fornication or adultery, for such is not acceptable before God. Those whose intentions are in marrying, should read Luke 20:34-35, where it is stated that those who are counted worthy of this kingdom neither marry nor are given in marriage. There is nothing called marriage in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, for we are all brothers and sisters.

Recall when the disciples of John the Baptist reported to him that the very man who he baptized, was baptizing other people. John replied unto them that he had always told them that no man can receive anything, unless it is given from above (John 3:26-27). The disciples were talking about Our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Lord Jesus Christ was baptized by John the Baptist, and the disciples of Jesus Christ were baptizing other people. If it were a mundane affair, this act would have ended in seriousness. It however, ended peacefully, because John knew the intricacies of the Kingdom of God.

I have always told you not to be bothered by what people do, or whatsoever happens in this world. Someone may get baptized into Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, only to go out and establish his own church. There is nothing wrong with this, and it does not call for hatred. Do not even be jealous of such a person. Realize that one cannot do anything by ones volition, except that which God has destined. So take care of what you say, hear and believe.

You have heard the worldly people saying that Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is a Beelzebub organization. Watch and see what is happening and what will happen to them. What they are saying is motivated by the type of spirit that possesses them. They are saying all these things so that the members of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star will join their various churches and organizations.

If you are a spirited child, hold onto the spirit of truth, send packing all the spirits of falsehood. Hold fast to the truth for this is the time of truth.

THE GOD OF RECONSTRUCTION:

The Father Himself is dwelling with men to straighten all things and reconstruct them. But for the presence of the Father, would South Africa have had peace? Do you think it is Satan that gave them the peace? For the past three hundred years, have the South Africans had peace like they are having now? What about the serious peace moves going on between the Israelites, Arabs and Palestinians? Is it a result of the Israeli’s negotiating capability? Is not this very God responsible for the peace in the Middle East? He is the very one instilling peace in all parts of the world.

That community called Biakpan had never seen real peace. Now, go to Biakpan and you will see real peace there. Is it not this God that is responsible for this? You need to visit Biakpan and behold the type of love that is flourishing there. Do you think Satan is the cause?

The Father is the one that is the cause and effect of everything. Before this time, every person in Biakpan was on his own, no cooperation. Now, what would make you believe stories or visions of doom? Why should you be threatened, when you are told that you would be imprisoned? Have you not heard testimonies of people convicted, but at Father’s pronouncements were discharged and acquitted? Have you not seen or heard of people given termination letters in their places of work, only to be promoted in consonance with the Holy Father’s pronouncement? All works are done by God.

THE ABORIGINES:

Do not steal or deceive people, so that you may use the proceeds thereof to serve God. You have to use your voice to sing praises unto Him. Do not become ashamed or offended when one person donates a million dollars for the service of God. Do not think that you would be sent away, since you cannot donate anything. You are an aborigine of this kingdom. You are at freedom and you were destined to be here before the foundations of the world were laid. Though someone may build several houses or donate billions of dollars, in order to take your place, he cannot succeed. Rather, he will continue in his place. while you remain here.

There may be millions or billions of white brethren and people from other races in this kingdom, yet, every person has his own glory and mansion. So, this is not a place to struggle for possessions and/or position. This is the place where love, peace and joy reign. Therefore, hold onto the things that promote love, peace and joy. Always use the telephone number of your Father, which you know.

Wherefore we receive a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and Godly fear.

SECOND LESSON: ROMANS 4:3-4

For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto Him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

GOLDEN TEXT: MATTHEW 20:20

Then came to Him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping Him, and desiring a certain thing of Him.

THE CHILDREN OF GOD ARE BORN:

Beloved, does man think that the Kingdom of God is acquired through violence, or does he think the Kingdom of God is a strange land, where only great people go? Does he believe that God has no family? Let it be known that God has a family. The title, ‘ROYAL’ which the worldly kings and queens claim for their families is derived from God’s royal family, the only true royal family.

If someone gives you a vision that you will backslide from this fold, do not bother yourself, for whatever was written about you stands. Nothing can take it away. If you are of God’s family, no one can take your position. All things are given to man from above, not according to his good works, righteousness, wisdom or power. You are not blessed because of your beauty, academic or spiritual attainment.

Recall what Our Lord Jesus Christ told the mother of the two sons of Zebedee. He told her that her two sons may drink of His cup and undergo His type of baptism, but to sit with Him on His left and right hand, in His Father’s kingdom is not His decision to make, but a prerogative of His Father. For those to be there were already predestined by His Father (See Matthew 20:20 for detail). Stop struggling and hustling for possessions and position in the Kingdom of God, for God has a family. Every person is destined for one thing or the other, be it wealth and/or rank.

You are not elected to any post because you can speak the English language fluently, or that you know how to play the game of politics. Those who are of the family of God are born naturally as God’s children. The children of God and the family of God were not made, but born. The children of God are not introduced through vision or prophecy, neither is it by voting.

You may be a great visionary, yet you may not be called. If you are not of the family of God, you cannot be given a position in His kingdom, no matter your wisdom, wealth or power. If you know that you are not of God’s kingdom, do not worry yourself, be contented with the position you have.

Now take a look at the position of the queen of England. Does it mean that there are no other women more educated, beautiful or even taller than her in England? Were there no men for such a position? It may interest you to know that the queen inherited her position from her family. Put differently, the position of the queen of England is hereditary. No matter how wealthy, educated, or beautiful you may be, you cannot be appointed to that post, unless you are of that family.

In the same way, God has His family. This explains why He often declares at the end of each sermon that those who have ears should hear. Those who have the ears to hear are the children of God. Only people of God’s family hear and understand His words (See John 8:47).

All the instructions of God are for His children. God is particularly concerned about His family. However, you have to consolidate your position. Do not allow any person to deceive you with carnal ideas. Do not accept when people tell you that if you do one thing or the other, God will place you in a certain position.

This kingdom is not acquired through works, but by destiny. God had predestined all things before the foundations of the world were laid. Now, you are not expected to worry about having faith in Him, for He is the giver and controller of faith. If he wants you to believe in Him, He gives you the ability. Everything has already been arranged. No one in the entire world has an idea. Why would mankind not understand God, and neither believe in Him? Who is man, to say that God cannot be a human being? You do not know what or who God is, which explains the reason why you do not know whether He has a family. You do not know who the Almighty God is!

The problems between the Moslems and Christians emanate from spiritual ignorance. The Moslems claim to be the real descendants of Abraham and the true worshippers of God (ALLAH). Their claim to be the heirs of Abraham stems from the birth of Ishmael. They are contending that since Abraham’s maid gave birth to Ishmael, he is the first son of Abraham. This, by natural law of birth and heritage is correct. However, the spiritual law supersedes that of the flesh.

Now, Abraham and Sarah are spiritually of the same parenthood. They are of the same father – God. They are therefore of God’s family. So the promise of God to Abraham was to be fulfilled through the birth of Isaac, who spiritually is of the same family. Hagar was from Egypt and could not have been from that family of God. If she is not of the family of God, how then could her son become a child of God?

Do you think that was Abraham’s only child? There were others, yet they were not recorded, because they were not of God’s family. Those were children he begot from concubines. In the case of Isaac, Sarah, his mother, and Abraham, his father, were of the same Father, but different mothers. So he, Isaac was the child of promise for them. Those who struggle for things here, should be warned that such unbecoming attitude does not do any good.

THE ORIGIN OF THE ENGAGEMENT RING:

If you like, you may establish a hundred churches, several prayer houses. or healing homes, but what is not for you, cannot be given to you. That was why, when Abraham was about to sleep in the Lord, he ordered his slaves to go to his hometown and bring a wife from there for Isaac. He warned them not to take any woman from any ‘Strange’ land for his son, Isaac. That was to say, that they should not take any woman from another tribe, but his own tribe and family.

Abraham’s servants conferred to their master their problems, which included their inability to trace his hometown. This was due to the fact that Abraham had left his hometown for over forty years and had not visited since then. However, Abraham told them that the angel of the Lord would lead them.

Abraham’s servants were led to Abraham’s hometown, in fact, his family. When they got there, they first met the destined wife for Isaac. Rebecca was standing at the well. They demanded water to drink, also for their cattle. She obliged them. After drinking, they discovered that it was late in the evening and they needed a place to pass the night. This, they made known to Rebecca and she invited them to her family’s house, where they met her parents. Because of Rebecca’s hospitality, Abraham’s servants showed interest in her.

In the course of introducing themselves, Abraham’s servants realized that Rebecca was Isaac’s first cousin, for her father was Abraham’s brother. Thus, they quickly revealed their mission to them. They accepted the proposal and it was consecrated by the engagement ring (a golden ring) which they were given by Abraham. This is the origin of the engagement ring. And the following day, the servants left with Rebecca as Isaac’s wife. It was not an accidental marriage. but God’s predestined affair (for full details, read Genesis 24:1-51).

The same is true of Jacob, when he was to take a wife. His mother instructed him to go to his fatherland and take a wife. He heeded the advice and ended up marrying a girl from his mother’s family, who was of God’s family. So. the family of God was also established in his own case. How Jacob ended up marrying two blood sisters was a case of circumstance. He had wanted to marry Rachel, the second daughter of Laban, but the tradition was that the first daughter must be married before the second.

Secondly, the suitor had to work for the father-in-law seven years before he could get the girl. So, at the end of the seven years, he demanded Rachel, to be given to him in marriage, but a big surprise awaited him.

Laban told him that the first seven years was for Leah, the first daughter. who, by custom, must first get married. He further told Jacob, that for him to have Rachel, he had to work for another seven years, which he did. At the end, the two sisters were given to him for marriage. And in fulfillment of her destiny, Rachel gave birth to Joseph, a one-time governor in Egypt. It may interest you. as Jacob married Leah and Rachel, one maid each was given to them, making a total of four women, who eventually became Jacob’s wives. In other words, Jacob married the four women and they all bore children for him. Though Joseph was not born early, but his growth and power revealed that the children of God are destined.

It is written thus:

For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments (Exodus 20:5-6).

Jacob had many other children, but those who came from the family of God were Joseph and Benjamin, who were both of the same mother. Let it be known to you that Rebecca, the mother of Jacob, Elizabeth the mother of John the Baptist and Mary, the mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ, were all of the same family. They are all of God’s family and were the greatest among people. Recall what Our Lord Jesus Christ said about John the Baptist, that among all men that are born of women, none is greater than him. He however said, that the least in the Kingdom of God (referring to Himself) is greater than Him (See Matthew 11:11).

Do you think that God does not see or know what is happening on Earth? Belonging to the family of God is not monetary achievement, neither is it achieved by academic excellence, but by the divine will of God. This is why it is written in Romans, Chapter Nine, Verse Sixteen, thus:

So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy.

God knows all things and knows those who are His. If you have read the book entitled, “Jehovah, God in Human Form”, you would have had a deeper understanding of the genealogy of the family of God. You cannot understand this with worldly knowledge. If you really want to know the way of God, you have to forget about your academic attainment and any mundane philosophy. Were it possible for Satan to inherit this kingdom, he would have inherited it. He had tried with all his powers, but it was not destined for him. But now, it has pleased God, the creator of all things to come and establish His kingdom on Earth. There are many mansions in His eternal kingdom. So wherever you find yourself, be happy and contented.

ALLOW THE WILL OF GOD TO PREVAIL:

When you ask God to give you something, thereby not allowing His will to manifest, you may receive the wrong gift, for everything is predestined. Take the case of the children of Israel, when they were led out of the bondage, from the Egyptians. They asked Samuel, the priest to give them a king. They so disturbed him that he became offended. However, God consoled him and pushed Saul to them as a king. Saul was not of God’s family, and he brutally dealt with the Israelites.

You may need to know that Saul did not enjoy the throne till the end, since it was not meant for him. On the other hand, David, who was from the destined house of God, enjoyed the kingly throne when he ascended. God revealed to Samuel to go to the house of Jesse, for a king had been chosen from that house for Israel. Samuel went there and related his mission to Jesse. Jesse paraded all his grownup male children before Samuel, but God did not choose any. He never imagined how God could take little David in preference to the grownups. Jesse told Samuel that he had no more children for a presentation. However, Samuel asked whether those were all the male children he had. Jesse replied that the last, called David, was a mere child who knew nothing. Samuel insisted that he should be brought. Once David stepped out, the Spirit descended on him. He was then and there chosen. Saul was a mundane chief, not ordained of God, since he did not come from the family of God. He was only reaping what he did not sow. You must have read how Saul and his two sons were killed one day (1 Samuel 31:1-6). Now you only hear of King David. This is because the house of Saul was wiped out.

God actually has a family. You can even see that Our Lord Jesus Christ came of the House of David; traceable to Jesse from the Tribe of Judah. At this juncture, I remember the statement of one lawyer, who asked the accusers of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star to leave Obu and His work. For if He is of God, He will stand the test of time, else He will be rooted up. Anything that does not come from God cannot last, so do not worry yourself about anything on Earth. That was why Our Lord Jesus Christ said that any tree not planted by His heavenly Father will be uprooted (Matthew 15:13). And the Father has come to do just that. He has come to uproot all alien plants which were not planted by Him. Now the kingship position belongs to the Royal family.

No amount of tricks can place you on any throne. Also, there is no type of mundane wisdom, or craftiness that can sustain you in any illegal position. So nobody should be disturbed about anything. Recall the statement of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Did He not promise to come and take dominion on Earth? There is nothing He said which He did not accomplish, or which cannot come to fulfillment. And this is that eternal kingdom, which He promised His people. This is the kingdom of the Almighty God and His Christ. By His coming to the Earth and taking dominion over all creations, the world and indeed the entire universe will be in perfect peace. Do not be afraid, neither should you doubt any more.

No man or spirit can seize what belongs to you, no matter how hard he tries. Now the churches of Christendom are not missing their yearly visits to Israel and to Mount Sinai. They hope that by going to pray on the very mountain that Christ transfigured, they would acquire the power and right of sonship of God. They think that membership in God’s family depends on these rites. They have failed woefully.

Take Elijah, Samuel and the rest of the patriarchs who reigned in Israel. They were sent by God, yet they were not ordained as kings and so could not reign as such. The king of kings was ordained by God. Who was Joseph of Arimathea, who buried the body of Our Lord Jesus Christ? Recall that all His disciples ran away. No one went out, for fear of being killed. Yet Joseph of Arimathea went to the authorities and pleaded to bury the body of Our Lord Jesus, the Christ. He took pains to wrap Him with a clean linen and buried Him in a tomb where no corpse had ever been buried. It was this same Joseph of Arimathea who took the Infant Jesus and helped with the escape to Egypt, when the war to prevent Him from ruling was very fierce. Joseph of Arimathea was of God’s family.

All that was written about God’s creations shall come to consummation. Stop praying for one thing and/or the other, but wait for the fulfillment of the promises of God upon His children. Everything that was hidden will be revealed, because the light itself has come. He has come to unfold all hidden things. Any person who does not come from the family of God, cannot do good works, because God is God. God is equally the truth, life, meekness, love, righteousness, humility and all other virtues. A son, therefore, must resemble his father. You cannot acquire anything here through your wealth, or position in the world.

KINGSHIP IS HEREDITARY:

Those who claim to be popes, bishops and other dignitaries have ended up not practicing God’s teachings. What they do is suppress others and cheat them out of their money.

This they do, because they are not of God’s family. They force the children of God to derail from the way of God. They are claiming what they are not, they are not of God’s family. This was why the genealogy of Our Lord Jesus Christ was prophesied by an angel before His birth.

Angel Gabriel did inform Mary that she would bear a son who shall be called Jesus. The same he said, shall be great and shall take the throne of his father, David. His kingship shall be forever (Luke 1:30-33). However, when Our Lord Jesus Christ came, He therefore could not get physically enthroned.

Our Lord Jesus Christ did not worry about mundane ceremonies. He knew that He should suffer first. That was why He asked whether it was not expedient for the Son of Man to suffer first, before He mounts His Father’s throne? When He had completed His assignment, He knew it was time for His glory. For this reason, He prayed that the Father should give Him the glory which He preserved for Him, before the foundations of the world were laid (John 17:1-5). Now you can understand, that all your quarrels, fighting for positions or possessions are in vain, and in fact, out of ignorance.

This is the time for all glory and thanks to be given to whom they belong. This is the era of His glory. Why then do human beings complain that the glory is great? Let it be known to you that there is nothing you can do now to change the situation.

See the first lesson below.

FIRST LESSON: HEBREWS 12:28

Wherefore we receive a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and Godly fear.

BE APPRECIATIVE:

Beloved, we have come into this kingdom to show a thankful heart, and praise God. We have not come to preach, or express our wisdom. We have to believe and have faith in Him. Do anything you know to magnify the glory of the living God. We have to express love, peace, mercy and humility. These are the qualities of God’s children. As you express your gratitude to God, you are promoting His glory among men. It is for this reason that John the Baptist testified that Christ must increase, while He decreases (See John 3:27-30). Like John the Baptist, we should rejoice in His arrival. For as many as receive Him and are glad in His visitation, are blessed. They shall all have their joy fulfilled.

Rejoice, for you are in the Kingdom of God. He has brought the kingdom and has already called you in. You are only asked to show appreciation for what He has done. Whatever therefore is done here is out of a thankful heart. That is why we do not impose levies on members for any reason. You are not called into this kingdom by your wealth, beauty, or wisdom. You may be deformed, homely, short or tall, yet you find yourself here. Once you were destined to enter into this kingdom, you will be called in, no matter your status or stature. Nobody can ever seize what is yours, as long as it was destined for you.

Our God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient. Therefore, nothing can take Him by surprise. No wisdom or power is above His. Why then should someone threaten you with visions or prophecies? Simply reply to such a visionary that we have a kingdom which nothing can shake in Heaven or Earth. So our job is to rejoice, showing a thankful heart to God.

Read the second lesson again.

SECOND LESSON: ROMANS 4:3-4

For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto Him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

A SETTLED DEBT:

This kingdom is given to us free, just because we believe in Him. It could be traced to the story of the prodigal son. After wasting the entire wealth handed over to him by his father, he repented. Realizing his folly, he asked himself, why he should subject himself to such torture when his father’s servants were well taken care of. He decided to go back to his father, to plead for forgiveness. As he went back, his father saw him from afar and ran toward him. He embraced his son, took him home and ordered that he be clothed in fine clothes. A big feast was celebrated for his return (Luke 15:11-24).

This is exactly what will happen to all the children of God in this era. Once you turn to God, He is ready to welcome you and endow you with power, position and possession. A time is coming and indeed very soon, when all will see what God had planned for His people. The type of joy awaiting the children of God is indescribable. This is the Kingdom of God, where no one is cheated or discriminated against. Do not heed those who are waiting for God to come from the sky, but believe that God is already in our midst. Therefore, rejoice and be happy singing praises to God always.

The church dignitaries and rich people of the world claim to be worshipping the real God, whom they expect from the clouds. They build houses and cathedrals with gold and other costly materials, yet they do not believe in God. They accuse members of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star of worshipping a human being, instead of God. Because you are not ashamed of worshipping a man and have implicit faith in God, you are blessed. You will certainly reap the fruits of your labor. For the Almighty God whom you worship, whom is dwelling in you, and in whom you believe, will provide all your needs.

This kingdom has been given to you gratis, but those who claim to be wise in the world will regret it. As they are watching the sky, the sun rays will blind them. And by the time they look down, they will not see anything. Abraham did not become the friend of God by watching the sky, or by wealth. He became God’s friend and the father of nations because he had faith in God. All children of God have faith in God and are covered by the grace of the Almighty.

No one enters into this kingdom except he who is a child of God. It is extremely difficult, and in fact impossible, for one who is not a destined child of God, to believe in God. This is why the worldly people say that Brotherhood members are worshipping a human being. Only the children of this kingdom know and believe in their Father.

We were not called because of our good works, but because we were destined to be here, coupled with the fact that we do have faith in God, the Father. Right now, all those who were unemployed are gainfully employed. They are rewarded for everything they do here. Your kneeling down, singing, dancing and even bowing are fully rewarded.. . and salvation already written for you, has come to fulfillment.

You cannot pay someone to gain salvation, or entry into this kingdom. All those who were destined to come in, gain the entry, gratis. All that is required of you is to believe in God. The unbaptized members complain that we are not worthy of this kingdom. We know that we are not worthy, but it has pleased our Father to call us into His kingdom. Unfortunately, those who presume that they are worthy, are not called and cannot come.

BEWARE OF SOME VISIONS:

The children of this kingdom are properly schooled. Whether you are preaching, prophesying or giving visions, know what to say, for no child of God can be deceived.

When one gives a vision that the Father has come with angels to watch over people, is one directed by His spirit? Who are those who need to be watched in the Kingdom of God? He did promise to forgive and forget all the sins of His children and that He will teach all of them, from the least to the greatest (Hebrews 8:10-12). This promise is now fulfilled in the children of God. Angels themselves fear, adore and worship Him.

THE ERA OF JOY:

This is not the era of spiritual war, which warrant some visionaries to reveal such in their visions. God has fought His war and conquered all. This explains why He dropped His former name, “Jesus,” indicating that He has completed that assignment on the cross. Now He is called the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. This is the era of joy. All knees must bow unto Him. All beings must worship Him.

Hebrews 1:6 states:

And again, when he bringeth in the first-begotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship Him.

In His case, who can challenge Him or become a stumbling block to you? This is the kingdom of joy, freedom and liberty. It is only in the world that people have visions of doom. Here, we are saved by grace, in accordance with God’s promise (See John 1:12). Wherever you go, all angels worship you; so there is no stumbling block on your way.

The Triune God is in full operation in the universe, both spiritually, physically and otherwise. So there is no external force that can disturb you. The children of God say that this is the long expected time. The angels proclaim that the end of time has come, but Satan says there is still much time. Let him fix his time, if he can.

This is our time to rejoice with our God, in His kingdom. Whatever is your stature or status, or sex, is immaterial. As long as you are His, your time to rejoice has come. Bring forth anything you have, but if you do not have anything, let your conscience be clear. No matter your status in life, and no matter your numerous sins, once you believe in Him, this is your era of joy. You have no problems, for this is the new Heaven and new Earth wherein dwells righteousness (2nd Peter 3:13).

SHUN NEGATIVE VISIONS:

Why should visionaries tell you that witchcraft is done against you? Where do those things exist, and what elementary power does not fear and worship God?

There is no negativity in this kingdom. So do not listen to those visionaries. A visionary who reveals an accident to you, is telling you an imaginary story. This is because no one can successfully plan an accident, when your Father is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient.

Neither knife, sword, gun or any weapon made by man, can harm any member of this fold. These things can successfully frighten the worldly people, who do not possess the Holy Spirit. A visionary who gives such visions to Brotherhood of the Cross and Star members is only exhibiting his ignorance. Even Satan and his agents know that no destructive weapon can harm any true Brotherhood member.

The glory derived from this kingdom is everlasting and this kingdom is an eternal kingdom. All those who believe in God and rejoice with Him shall remain under this great umbrella forever. Your state of birth, or your status in life cannot influence God’s choice over you as His child. All you have to do is repent and rejoice in His visitation.

HOLD ONTO YOUR POSITION:

This kingdom has everything one can think of. The spiritual, physical and material benefits of this world and even beyond are assembled here. In fact, they are in surplus. Just as ‘Bian Aneyen Evai Biakpan sang in their song, there are enough rooms in the Kingdom of God, and every person has his own glory and position. So do not bother about another person’s position, rather hold fast and keep your position. There are those at the forefront, those behind, and those at the left and right. He knows everyone and calls each person by name till the end of time. However, if He has not called you, it will be impossible for you to enter into, or inherit this kingdom.

No one comes here by wisdom, wealth, power or any type of mundane manipulation. You cannot come on your own volition, but must be called. You only enter by faith, which of course is the resultant effect of your destiny. Only the children of God believe in God, their Father. All those who have strived to forsake sins and those who have tried to do good, the ability was not given to them. But the children are having their desires fulfilled and have developed faith in Him. For once you believe in Him, He takes over your burdens and meets your age-long desires. He takes care of you and finally changes you for good. All these things He does gratis.

This is the kingdom of love, unity, goodness and joy, wherein righteousness dwells. Do not allow any person to deceive you, or frighten you by visions, or prophecy. The Father exists in multiple forms. He is overwhelmingly present in all creatures. So, nothing evil can harm you. Therefore, know that you are completely free and liberated. What you cannot do. due to the weariness of your flesh, your faith in Him has accomplished that for you.

This is the unshakable kingdom which cannot be terminated by any force, visible or invisible. Do not, therefore, believe any false vision. Recall when Our Lord Jesus Christ ministered on Earth. A city of the Samaritans once refused Him and His disciples passage to Jerusalem. James and John, in annoyance, asked Christ that they be allowed to command fire from above to consume the entire city. However, Christ rebuked them and intimated to them that He came to save lives (See Luke 9:51-56). Our Lord Jesus Christ knew that His disciples were in the flesh, and so reminded them that His era cannot be compared with that of Elijah.

I want you to understand that the administration in the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is quite different from what man may cogitate. This is because some people do not understand the sensitive nature of this kingdom. Hence they make all sorts of vain and negative pronouncements. Such are elementary reasoning. God has come to rebuild the demolished places and to reconstruct what was destroyed. He has not come to destroy, but to change man to God.

The vain statements you make out of ignorance are what causes people to speak ill about God and Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. Why people infest you with mundane doctrines and elementary visions, is because of your relationship with other members. If you behave uprightly and truthfully with others, God will be glorified. God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient. and so does not need any help from anybody to build His Kingdom.

I want everybody to take note of this warning. If you are a visionary in Brotherhood, do not stand up to say whatever you like. God is not a God of confusion. Do not therefore, confuse or sadden His children with visions of doom. Those visions concerning angels with swords and other weapons to destroy the children of God, are not of this kingdom. Such are not directed by the spirit of this kingdom.

What is obtainable in this kingdom is love, truth, righteousness, peace and progress. If you are sick, you will be healed. If you die, you will be raised unto life. The poor become rich and all crooked ways become straightened. These are the works of life which are currently ongoing in this kingdom.

Recall the testimony of a reverend who was converted from the Roman Catholic religion. He testified that a Catholic Archbishop tried to kill him. The Reverend told him that no person can plan that, since he did not commit any offense against the Archbishop. On his second visit, he testified that the Archbishop received him very warmly. Any person who is truly a Brotherhood member and understands this fold cannot fear.

If you tell a Brotherhood member that a ghost lives in a house and no human being can live therein, a Brotherhood member will live there in peace. Visions that say that ghosts are after you, armed robbers are coming to attack you, etc., are false. Do not fear when you are told such tales, rather tell the visionary that you are ready for all these things. All spirits do know that Brotherhood members are above any attack, spiritually or physically.

Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is protecting the entire world. Whether one comes here or not, one is being protected. The grace and goodness from Brotherhood is sufficient for all races and creations of God. So let us spread this news of good tidings to the people of the world. Stop telling people stories that border on darkness. Most of those visions have no bearing with the tenets of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. They are of worldly spirits.

Whenever you visit a psychic or fortuneteller, he will say that you are very lucky to have visited him, because a rival spirit almost destroyed you. Such things do not happen to members of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. What the fortuneteller said is part of his trade, in order to get money from you. You may be a hundred percent healthy, but he can convince you that you are about to die. These things he says to you to obtain money from you.

Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is a place of freedom and joy. We talk of protection, promotion and love. Do not listen to the visionaries who are possessed of the mundane spirits of darkness. I have sent such elementary spirits out of you. Brotherhood members are untouchable and indestructible, and so you have nothing to fear. Dark forces do not exist anymore. This is the kingdom that should make you happy and contented, for all is well with you.

Read the golden text again.

GOLDEN TEXT: MATTHEW 20:20

Then came to Him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping Him, and desiring a certain thing of Him.

THE CHOSEN ONES:

You have read the text and have assimilated same. Henceforth, I do not want any Brotherhood of the Cross and Star member to indulge in vain talks such as, people hate me, people want to kill me, and so on’. This should not come either in your visions or prophecies. Nobody is against you and no one is planning evil against you. You are the one worrying yourself. Recall Sister Marts who was given a vision that she should go on ministry work to three stations, after that she should celebrate a full feast. This was to act as a buffer and sacrifice, so that her enemies may be taken away. When the Sister heard this, she retorted that she would not undertake such ministry work, neither would she celebrate the feast, for she has no enemies.

Up till this day, nothing has happened to her. Going on ministry work and celebrating a feast are good things to do, but to do them in order to avert a superstitious danger is not allowed. There is no truth in such visions and they are not of the spirit of truth, which is the spirit in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. Though the visionary may shout, do not believe if he tells you negative things.

No one can deceive a member of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star anymore. Recall the testimony of Apostle Bro-Bro. A renown occultist boasted before Bro-Bro that Heaven and Earth are in his palms. However, Bro-Bro, being a devotee of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, told him that Heaven, Earth and all planes of existence are controlled and vitalized by the Holy Father. To attest his authority, the man told Bro-Bro that rain would drench him that very day. However, Bro-Bro refuted that statement and told him that no single drop of rain would touch the ground for the next three days. That was the great bet, he boasted that by his powers, rain would fall that same day. Bro-Bro boasted that by his Father’s power, rain would not fall for three days.

The man rushed into his inner room and brought his mystic book. He performed all his rituals to command rain to fall, yet the sun was very bright. Not even rain clouds formed in the sky. He tried everything mystical and diabolical to invoke the angel that controls the rain, but all his efforts ended in a terrible fiasco. There were no drops of rain for three days as commanded by the Brotherhood child. Finally, the man accepted that he has seen a greater power than his. Now, I want everybody to resemble the Father who is here present.

Do not fear when you are told that an angel can harm you. Have you not read that all angels are commanded to worship the Son of God? You are free wherever you are, spiritually or physically. The Holy Spirit has taken dominion over all things. If you are a visionary, you have to watch your messages, so that you will not clash with the Holy Spirit. There is no death for any person here. Visionaries should stop telling people those things. This is the time of joy and peace. The Father is always with you even when you are on ministry work. Right now, the Father is working for those crusaders who are here with Him.

The kingdom is destined for those whom the Father chose from the beginning. You do not acquire it by wealth, wisdom or works. You do not come in by your power. You were destined to be here, and thus, the kingdom is given to you gratis. Where is Biakpan, Biase, Cross River State or Nigeria that should have merited this glory? This is an indication that He saves us free; out of His divine grace and love. You have to be in peace with all people. Purity your mind and do not bear malice against any person. Do not indulge in diabolical preparation of any kind. Such things do not have power, neither do they exist. They only exist imaginary. Do not commit fornication or adultery, for such is not acceptable before God. Those whose intentions are in marrying, should read Luke 20:34-35, where it is stated that those who are counted worthy of this kingdom neither marry nor are given in marriage. There is nothing called marriage in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, for we are all brothers and sisters.

Recall when the disciples of John the Baptist reported to him that the very man who he baptized, was baptizing other people. John replied unto them that he had always told them that no man can receive anything, unless it is given from above (John 3:26-27). The disciples were talking about Our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Lord Jesus Christ was baptized by John the Baptist, and the disciples of Jesus Christ were baptizing other people. If it were a mundane affair, this act would have ended in seriousness. It however, ended peacefully, because John knew the intricacies of the Kingdom of God.

I have always told you not to be bothered by what people do, or whatsoever happens in this world. Someone may get baptized into Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, only to go out and establish his own church. There is nothing wrong with this, and it does not call for hatred. Do not even be jealous of such a person. Realize that one cannot do anything by ones volition, except that which God has destined. So take care of what you say, hear and believe.

You have heard the worldly people saying that Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is a Beelzebub organization. Watch and see what is happening and what will happen to them. What they are saying is motivated by the type of spirit that possesses them. They are saying all these things so that the members of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star will join their various churches and organizations.

If you are a spirited child, hold onto the spirit of truth, send packing all the spirits of falsehood. Hold fast to the truth for this is the time of truth.

THE GOD OF RECONSTRUCTION:

The Father Himself is dwelling with men to straighten all things and reconstruct them. But for the presence of the Father, would South Africa have had peace? Do you think it is Satan that gave them the peace? For the past three hundred years, have the South Africans had peace like they are having now? What about the serious peace moves going on between the Israelites, Arabs and Palestinians? Is it a result of the Israeli’s negotiating capability? Is not this very God responsible for the peace in the Middle East? He is the very one instilling peace in all parts of the world.

That community called Biakpan had never seen real peace. Now, go to Biakpan and you will see real peace there. Is it not this God that is responsible for this? You need to visit Biakpan and behold the type of love that is flourishing there. Do you think Satan is the cause?

The Father is the one that is the cause and effect of everything. Before this time, every person in Biakpan was on his own, no cooperation. Now, what would make you believe stories or visions of doom? Why should you be threatened, when you are told that you would be imprisoned? Have you not heard testimonies of people convicted, but at Father’s pronouncements were discharged and acquitted? Have you not seen or heard of people given termination letters in their places of work, only to be promoted in consonance with the Holy Father’s pronouncement? All works are done by God.

THE ABORIGINES:

Do not steal or deceive people, so that you may use the proceeds thereof to serve God. You have to use your voice to sing praises unto Him. Do not become ashamed or offended when one person donates a million dollars for the service of God. Do not think that you would be sent away, since you cannot donate anything. You are an aborigine of this kingdom. You are at freedom and you were destined to be here before the foundations of the world were laid. Though someone may build several houses or donate billions of dollars, in order to take your place, he cannot succeed. Rather, he will continue in his place. while you remain here.

There may be millions or billions of white brethren and people from other races in this kingdom, yet, every person has his own glory and mansion. So, this is not a place to struggle for possessions and/or position. This is the place where love, peace and joy reign. Therefore, hold onto the things that promote love, peace and joy. Always use the telephone number of your Father, which you know.

Wherefore we receive a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and Godly fear.

SECOND LESSON: ROMANS 4:3-4

For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto Him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

GOLDEN TEXT: MATTHEW 20:20

Then came to Him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping Him, and desiring a certain thing of Him.

THE CHILDREN OF GOD ARE BORN:

Beloved, does man think that the Kingdom of God is acquired through violence, or does he think the Kingdom of God is a strange land, where only great people go? Does he believe that God has no family? Let it be known that God has a family. The title, ‘ROYAL’ which the worldly kings and queens claim for their families is derived from God’s royal family, the only true royal family.

If someone gives you a vision that you will backslide from this fold, do not bother yourself, for whatever was written about you stands. Nothing can take it away. If you are of God’s family, no one can take your position. All things are given to man from above, not according to his good works, righteousness, wisdom or power. You are not blessed because of your beauty, academic or spiritual attainment.

Recall what Our Lord Jesus Christ told the mother of the two sons of Zebedee. He told her that her two sons may drink of His cup and undergo His type of baptism, but to sit with Him on His left and right hand, in His Father’s kingdom is not His decision to make, but a prerogative of His Father. For those to be there were already predestined by His Father (See Matthew 20:20 for detail). Stop struggling and hustling for possessions and position in the Kingdom of God, for God has a family. Every person is destined for one thing or the other, be it wealth and/or rank.

You are not elected to any post because you can speak the English language fluently, or that you know how to play the game of politics. Those who are of the family of God are born naturally as God’s children. The children of God and the family of God were not made, but born. The children of God are not introduced through vision or prophecy, neither is it by voting.

You may be a great visionary, yet you may not be called. If you are not of the family of God, you cannot be given a position in His kingdom, no matter your wisdom, wealth or power. If you know that you are not of God’s kingdom, do not worry yourself, be contented with the position you have.

Now take a look at the position of the queen of England. Does it mean that there are no other women more educated, beautiful or even taller than her in England? Were there no men for such a position? It may interest you to know that the queen inherited her position from her family. Put differently, the position of the queen of England is hereditary. No matter how wealthy, educated, or beautiful you may be, you cannot be appointed to that post, unless you are of that family.

In the same way, God has His family. This explains why He often declares at the end of each sermon that those who have ears should hear. Those who have the ears to hear are the children of God. Only people of God’s family hear and understand His words (See John 8:47).

All the instructions of God are for His children. God is particularly concerned about His family. However, you have to consolidate your position. Do not allow any person to deceive you with carnal ideas. Do not accept when people tell you that if you do one thing or the other, God will place you in a certain position.

This kingdom is not acquired through works, but by destiny. God had predestined all things before the foundations of the world were laid. Now, you are not expected to worry about having faith in Him, for He is the giver and controller of faith. If he wants you to believe in Him, He gives you the ability. Everything has already been arranged. No one in the entire world has an idea. Why would mankind not understand God, and neither believe in Him? Who is man, to say that God cannot be a human being? You do not know what or who God is, which explains the reason why you do not know whether He has a family. You do not know who the Almighty God is!

The problems between the Moslems and Christians emanate from spiritual ignorance. The Moslems claim to be the real descendants of Abraham and the true worshippers of God (ALLAH). Their claim to be the heirs of Abraham stems from the birth of Ishmael. They are contending that since Abraham’s maid gave birth to Ishmael, he is the first son of Abraham. This, by natural law of birth and heritage is correct. However, the spiritual law supersedes that of the flesh.

Now, Abraham and Sarah are spiritually of the same parenthood. They are of the same father – God. They are therefore of God’s family. So the promise of God to Abraham was to be fulfilled through the birth of Isaac, who spiritually is of the same family. Hagar was from Egypt and could not have been from that family of God. If she is not of the family of God, how then could her son become a child of God?

Do you think that was Abraham’s only child? There were others, yet they were not recorded, because they were not of God’s family. Those were children he begot from concubines. In the case of Isaac, Sarah, his mother, and Abraham, his father, were of the same Father, but different mothers. So he, Isaac was the child of promise for them. Those who struggle for things here, should be warned that such unbecoming attitude does not do any good.

THE ORIGIN OF THE ENGAGEMENT RING:

If you like, you may establish a hundred churches, several prayer houses. or healing homes, but what is not for you, cannot be given to you. That was why, when Abraham was about to sleep in the Lord, he ordered his slaves to go to his hometown and bring a wife from there for Isaac. He warned them not to take any woman from any ‘Strange’ land for his son, Isaac. That was to say, that they should not take any woman from another tribe, but his own tribe and family.

Abraham’s servants conferred to their master their problems, which included their inability to trace his hometown. This was due to the fact that Abraham had left his hometown for over forty years and had not visited since then. However, Abraham told them that the angel of the Lord would lead them.

Abraham’s servants were led to Abraham’s hometown, in fact, his family. When they got there, they first met the destined wife for Isaac. Rebecca was standing at the well. They demanded water to drink, also for their cattle. She obliged them. After drinking, they discovered that it was late in the evening and they needed a place to pass the night. This, they made known to Rebecca and she invited them to her family’s house, where they met her parents. Because of Rebecca’s hospitality, Abraham’s servants showed interest in her.

In the course of introducing themselves, Abraham’s servants realized that Rebecca was Isaac’s first cousin, for her father was Abraham’s brother. Thus, they quickly revealed their mission to them. They accepted the proposal and it was consecrated by the engagement ring (a golden ring) which they were given by Abraham. This is the origin of the engagement ring. And the following day, the servants left with Rebecca as Isaac’s wife. It was not an accidental marriage. but God’s predestined affair (for full details, read Genesis 24:1-51).

The same is true of Jacob, when he was to take a wife. His mother instructed him to go to his fatherland and take a wife. He heeded the advice and ended up marrying a girl from his mother’s family, who was of God’s family. So. the family of God was also established in his own case. How Jacob ended up marrying two blood sisters was a case of circumstance. He had wanted to marry Rachel, the second daughter of Laban, but the tradition was that the first daughter must be married before the second.

Secondly, the suitor had to work for the father-in-law seven years before he could get the girl. So, at the end of the seven years, he demanded Rachel, to be given to him in marriage, but a big surprise awaited him.

Laban told him that the first seven years was for Leah, the first daughter. who, by custom, must first get married. He further told Jacob, that for him to have Rachel, he had to work for another seven years, which he did. At the end, the two sisters were given to him for marriage. And in fulfillment of her destiny, Rachel gave birth to Joseph, a one-time governor in Egypt. It may interest you. as Jacob married Leah and Rachel, one maid each was given to them, making a total of four women, who eventually became Jacob’s wives. In other words, Jacob married the four women and they all bore children for him. Though Joseph was not born early, but his growth and power revealed that the children of God are destined.

It is written thus:

For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments (Exodus 20:5-6).

Jacob had many other children, but those who came from the family of God were Joseph and Benjamin, who were both of the same mother. Let it be known to you that Rebecca, the mother of Jacob, Elizabeth the mother of John the Baptist and Mary, the mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ, were all of the same family. They are all of God’s family and were the greatest among people. Recall what Our Lord Jesus Christ said about John the Baptist, that among all men that are born of women, none is greater than him. He however said, that the least in the Kingdom of God (referring to Himself) is greater than Him (See Matthew 11:11).

Do you think that God does not see or know what is happening on Earth? Belonging to the family of God is not monetary achievement, neither is it achieved by academic excellence, but by the divine will of God. This is why it is written in Romans, Chapter Nine, Verse Sixteen, thus:

So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy.

God knows all things and knows those who are His. If you have read the book entitled, “Jehovah, God in Human Form”, you would have had a deeper understanding of the genealogy of the family of God. You cannot understand this with worldly knowledge. If you really want to know the way of God, you have to forget about your academic attainment and any mundane philosophy. Were it possible for Satan to inherit this kingdom, he would have inherited it. He had tried with all his powers, but it was not destined for him. But now, it has pleased God, the creator of all things to come and establish His kingdom on Earth. There are many mansions in His eternal kingdom. So wherever you find yourself, be happy and contented.

ALLOW THE WILL OF GOD TO PREVAIL:

When you ask God to give you something, thereby not allowing His will to manifest, you may receive the wrong gift, for everything is predestined. Take the case of the children of Israel, when they were led out of the bondage, from the Egyptians. They asked Samuel, the priest to give them a king. They so disturbed him that he became offended. However, God consoled him and pushed Saul to them as a king. Saul was not of God’s family, and he brutally dealt with the Israelites.

You may need to know that Saul did not enjoy the throne till the end, since it was not meant for him. On the other hand, David, who was from the destined house of God, enjoyed the kingly throne when he ascended. God revealed to Samuel to go to the house of Jesse, for a king had been chosen from that house for Israel. Samuel went there and related his mission to Jesse. Jesse paraded all his grownup male children before Samuel, but God did not choose any. He never imagined how God could take little David in preference to the grownups. Jesse told Samuel that he had no more children for a presentation. However, Samuel asked whether those were all the male children he had. Jesse replied that the last, called David, was a mere child who knew nothing. Samuel insisted that he should be brought. Once David stepped out, the Spirit descended on him. He was then and there chosen. Saul was a mundane chief, not ordained of God, since he did not come from the family of God. He was only reaping what he did not sow. You must have read how Saul and his two sons were killed one day (1 Samuel 31:1-6). Now you only hear of King David. This is because the house of Saul was wiped out.

God actually has a family. You can even see that Our Lord Jesus Christ came of the House of David; traceable to Jesse from the Tribe of Judah. At this juncture, I remember the statement of one lawyer, who asked the accusers of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star to leave Obu and His work. For if He is of God, He will stand the test of time, else He will be rooted up. Anything that does not come from God cannot last, so do not worry yourself about anything on Earth. That was why Our Lord Jesus Christ said that any tree not planted by His heavenly Father will be uprooted (Matthew 15:13). And the Father has come to do just that. He has come to uproot all alien plants which were not planted by Him. Now the kingship position belongs to the Royal family.

No amount of tricks can place you on any throne. Also, there is no type of mundane wisdom, or craftiness that can sustain you in any illegal position. So nobody should be disturbed about anything. Recall the statement of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Did He not promise to come and take dominion on Earth? There is nothing He said which He did not accomplish, or which cannot come to fulfillment. And this is that eternal kingdom, which He promised His people. This is the kingdom of the Almighty God and His Christ. By His coming to the Earth and taking dominion over all creations, the world and indeed the entire universe will be in perfect peace. Do not be afraid, neither should you doubt any more.

No man or spirit can seize what belongs to you, no matter how hard he tries. Now the churches of Christendom are not missing their yearly visits to Israel and to Mount Sinai. They hope that by going to pray on the very mountain that Christ transfigured, they would acquire the power and right of sonship of God. They think that membership in God’s family depends on these rites. They have failed woefully.

Take Elijah, Samuel and the rest of the patriarchs who reigned in Israel. They were sent by God, yet they were not ordained as kings and so could not reign as such. The king of kings was ordained by God. Who was Joseph of Arimathea, who buried the body of Our Lord Jesus Christ? Recall that all His disciples ran away. No one went out, for fear of being killed. Yet Joseph of Arimathea went to the authorities and pleaded to bury the body of Our Lord Jesus, the Christ. He took pains to wrap Him with a clean linen and buried Him in a tomb where no corpse had ever been buried. It was this same Joseph of Arimathea who took the Infant Jesus and helped with the escape to Egypt, when the war to prevent Him from ruling was very fierce. Joseph of Arimathea was of God’s family.

All that was written about God’s creations shall come to consummation. Stop praying for one thing and/or the other, but wait for the fulfillment of the promises of God upon His children. Everything that was hidden will be revealed, because the light itself has come. He has come to unfold all hidden things. Any person who does not come from the family of God, cannot do good works, because God is God. God is equally the truth, life, meekness, love, righteousness, humility and all other virtues. A son, therefore, must resemble his father. You cannot acquire anything here through your wealth, or position in the world.

KINGSHIP IS HEREDITARY:

Those who claim to be popes, bishops and other dignitaries have ended up not practicing God’s teachings. What they do is suppress others and cheat them out of their money.

This they do, because they are not of God’s family. They force the children of God to derail from the way of God. They are claiming what they are not, they are not of God’s family. This was why the genealogy of Our Lord Jesus Christ was prophesied by an angel before His birth.

Angel Gabriel did inform Mary that she would bear a son who shall be called Jesus. The same he said, shall be great and shall take the throne of his father, David. His kingship shall be forever (Luke 1:30-33). However, when Our Lord Jesus Christ came, He therefore could not get physically enthroned.

Our Lord Jesus Christ did not worry about mundane ceremonies. He knew that He should suffer first. That was why He asked whether it was not expedient for the Son of Man to suffer first, before He mounts His Father’s throne? When He had completed His assignment, He knew it was time for His glory. For this reason, He prayed that the Father should give Him the glory which He preserved for Him, before the foundations of the world were laid (John 17:1-5). Now you can understand, that all your quarrels, fighting for positions or possessions are in vain, and in fact, out of ignorance.

This is the time for all glory and thanks to be given to whom they belong. This is the era of His glory. Why then do human beings complain that the glory is great? Let it be known to you that there is nothing you can do now to change the situation.

See the first lesson below.

FIRST LESSON: HEBREWS 12:28

Wherefore we receive a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and Godly fear.

BE APPRECIATIVE:

Beloved, we have come into this kingdom to show a thankful heart, and praise God. We have not come to preach, or express our wisdom. We have to believe and have faith in Him. Do anything you know to magnify the glory of the living God. We have to express love, peace, mercy and humility. These are the qualities of God’s children. As you express your gratitude to God, you are promoting His glory among men. It is for this reason that John the Baptist testified that Christ must increase, while He decreases (See John 3:27-30). Like John the Baptist, we should rejoice in His arrival. For as many as receive Him and are glad in His visitation, are blessed. They shall all have their joy fulfilled.

Rejoice, for you are in the Kingdom of God. He has brought the kingdom and has already called you in. You are only asked to show appreciation for what He has done. Whatever therefore is done here is out of a thankful heart. That is why we do not impose levies on members for any reason. You are not called into this kingdom by your wealth, beauty, or wisdom. You may be deformed, homely, short or tall, yet you find yourself here. Once you were destined to enter into this kingdom, you will be called in, no matter your status or stature. Nobody can ever seize what is yours, as long as it was destined for you.

Our God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient. Therefore, nothing can take Him by surprise. No wisdom or power is above His. Why then should someone threaten you with visions or prophecies? Simply reply to such a visionary that we have a kingdom which nothing can shake in Heaven or Earth. So our job is to rejoice, showing a thankful heart to God.

Read the second lesson again.

SECOND LESSON: ROMANS 4:3-4

For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto Him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

A SETTLED DEBT:

This kingdom is given to us free, just because we believe in Him. It could be traced to the story of the prodigal son. After wasting the entire wealth handed over to him by his father, he repented. Realizing his folly, he asked himself, why he should subject himself to such torture when his father’s servants were well taken care of. He decided to go back to his father, to plead for forgiveness. As he went back, his father saw him from afar and ran toward him. He embraced his son, took him home and ordered that he be clothed in fine clothes. A big feast was celebrated for his return (Luke 15:11-24).

This is exactly what will happen to all the children of God in this era. Once you turn to God, He is ready to welcome you and endow you with power, position and possession. A time is coming and indeed very soon, when all will see what God had planned for His people. The type of joy awaiting the children of God is indescribable. This is the Kingdom of God, where no one is cheated or discriminated against. Do not heed those who are waiting for God to come from the sky, but believe that God is already in our midst. Therefore, rejoice and be happy singing praises to God always.

The church dignitaries and rich people of the world claim to be worshipping the real God, whom they expect from the clouds. They build houses and cathedrals with gold and other costly materials, yet they do not believe in God. They accuse members of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star of worshipping a human being, instead of God. Because you are not ashamed of worshipping a man and have implicit faith in God, you are blessed. You will certainly reap the fruits of your labor. For the Almighty God whom you worship, whom is dwelling in you, and in whom you believe, will provide all your needs.

This kingdom has been given to you gratis, but those who claim to be wise in the world will regret it. As they are watching the sky, the sun rays will blind them. And by the time they look down, they will not see anything. Abraham did not become the friend of God by watching the sky, or by wealth. He became God’s friend and the father of nations because he had faith in God. All children of God have faith in God and are covered by the grace of the Almighty.

No one enters into this kingdom except he who is a child of God. It is extremely difficult, and in fact impossible, for one who is not a destined child of God, to believe in God. This is why the worldly people say that Brotherhood members are worshipping a human being. Only the children of this kingdom know and believe in their Father.

We were not called because of our good works, but because we were destined to be here, coupled with the fact that we do have faith in God, the Father. Right now, all those who were unemployed are gainfully employed. They are rewarded for everything they do here. Your kneeling down, singing, dancing and even bowing are fully rewarded.. . and salvation already written for you, has come to fulfillment.

You cannot pay someone to gain salvation, or entry into this kingdom. All those who were destined to come in, gain the entry, gratis. All that is required of you is to believe in God. The unbaptized members complain that we are not worthy of this kingdom. We know that we are not worthy, but it has pleased our Father to call us into His kingdom. Unfortunately, those who presume that they are worthy, are not called and cannot come.

BEWARE OF SOME VISIONS:

The children of this kingdom are properly schooled. Whether you are preaching, prophesying or giving visions, know what to say, for no child of God can be deceived.

When one gives a vision that the Father has come with angels to watch over people, is one directed by His spirit? Who are those who need to be watched in the Kingdom of God? He did promise to forgive and forget all the sins of His children and that He will teach all of them, from the least to the greatest (Hebrews 8:10-12). This promise is now fulfilled in the children of God. Angels themselves fear, adore and worship Him.

THE ERA OF JOY:

This is not the era of spiritual war, which warrant some visionaries to reveal such in their visions. God has fought His war and conquered all. This explains why He dropped His former name, “Jesus,” indicating that He has completed that assignment on the cross. Now He is called the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. This is the era of joy. All knees must bow unto Him. All beings must worship Him.

Hebrews 1:6 states:

And again, when he bringeth in the first-begotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship Him.

In His case, who can challenge Him or become a stumbling block to you? This is the kingdom of joy, freedom and liberty. It is only in the world that people have visions of doom. Here, we are saved by grace, in accordance with God’s promise (See John 1:12). Wherever you go, all angels worship you; so there is no stumbling block on your way.

The Triune God is in full operation in the universe, both spiritually, physically and otherwise. So there is no external force that can disturb you. The children of God say that this is the long expected time. The angels proclaim that the end of time has come, but Satan says there is still much time. Let him fix his time, if he can.

This is our time to rejoice with our God, in His kingdom. Whatever is your stature or status, or sex, is immaterial. As long as you are His, your time to rejoice has come. Bring forth anything you have, but if you do not have anything, let your conscience be clear. No matter your status in life, and no matter your numerous sins, once you believe in Him, this is your era of joy. You have no problems, for this is the new Heaven and new Earth wherein dwells righteousness (2nd Peter 3:13).

SHUN NEGATIVE VISIONS:

Why should visionaries tell you that witchcraft is done against you? Where do those things exist, and what elementary power does not fear and worship God?

There is no negativity in this kingdom. So do not listen to those visionaries. A visionary who reveals an accident to you, is telling you an imaginary story. This is because no one can successfully plan an accident, when your Father is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient.

Neither knife, sword, gun or any weapon made by man, can harm any member of this fold. These things can successfully frighten the worldly people, who do not possess the Holy Spirit. A visionary who gives such visions to Brotherhood of the Cross and Star members is only exhibiting his ignorance. Even Satan and his agents know that no destructive weapon can harm any true Brotherhood member.

The glory derived from this kingdom is everlasting and this kingdom is an eternal kingdom. All those who believe in God and rejoice with Him shall remain under this great umbrella forever. Your state of birth, or your status in life cannot influence God’s choice over you as His child. All you have to do is repent and rejoice in His visitation.

HOLD ONTO YOUR POSITION:

This kingdom has everything one can think of. The spiritual, physical and material benefits of this world and even beyond are assembled here. In fact, they are in surplus. Just as ‘Bian Aneyen Evai Biakpan sang in their song, there are enough rooms in the Kingdom of God, and every person has his own glory and position. So do not bother about another person’s position, rather hold fast and keep your position. There are those at the forefront, those behind, and those at the left and right. He knows everyone and calls each person by name till the end of time. However, if He has not called you, it will be impossible for you to enter into, or inherit this kingdom.

No one comes here by wisdom, wealth, power or any type of mundane manipulation. You cannot come on your own volition, but must be called. You only enter by faith, which of course is the resultant effect of your destiny. Only the children of God believe in God, their Father. All those who have strived to forsake sins and those who have tried to do good, the ability was not given to them. But the children are having their desires fulfilled and have developed faith in Him. For once you believe in Him, He takes over your burdens and meets your age-long desires. He takes care of you and finally changes you for good. All these things He does gratis.

This is the kingdom of love, unity, goodness and joy, wherein righteousness dwells. Do not allow any person to deceive you, or frighten you by visions, or prophecy. The Father exists in multiple forms. He is overwhelmingly present in all creatures. So, nothing evil can harm you. Therefore, know that you are completely free and liberated. What you cannot do. due to the weariness of your flesh, your faith in Him has accomplished that for you.

This is the unshakable kingdom which cannot be terminated by any force, visible or invisible. Do not, therefore, believe any false vision. Recall when Our Lord Jesus Christ ministered on Earth. A city of the Samaritans once refused Him and His disciples passage to Jerusalem. James and John, in annoyance, asked Christ that they be allowed to command fire from above to consume the entire city. However, Christ rebuked them and intimated to them that He came to save lives (See Luke 9:51-56). Our Lord Jesus Christ knew that His disciples were in the flesh, and so reminded them that His era cannot be compared with that of Elijah.

I want you to understand that the administration in the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is quite different from what man may cogitate. This is because some people do not understand the sensitive nature of this kingdom. Hence they make all sorts of vain and negative pronouncements. Such are elementary reasoning. God has come to rebuild the demolished places and to reconstruct what was destroyed. He has not come to destroy, but to change man to God.

The vain statements you make out of ignorance are what causes people to speak ill about God and Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. Why people infest you with mundane doctrines and elementary visions, is because of your relationship with other members. If you behave uprightly and truthfully with others, God will be glorified. God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient. and so does not need any help from anybody to build His Kingdom.

I want everybody to take note of this warning. If you are a visionary in Brotherhood, do not stand up to say whatever you like. God is not a God of confusion. Do not therefore, confuse or sadden His children with visions of doom. Those visions concerning angels with swords and other weapons to destroy the children of God, are not of this kingdom. Such are not directed by the spirit of this kingdom.

What is obtainable in this kingdom is love, truth, righteousness, peace and progress. If you are sick, you will be healed. If you die, you will be raised unto life. The poor become rich and all crooked ways become straightened. These are the works of life which are currently ongoing in this kingdom.

Recall the testimony of a reverend who was converted from the Roman Catholic religion. He testified that a Catholic Archbishop tried to kill him. The Reverend told him that no person can plan that, since he did not commit any offense against the Archbishop. On his second visit, he testified that the Archbishop received him very warmly. Any person who is truly a Brotherhood member and understands this fold cannot fear.

If you tell a Brotherhood member that a ghost lives in a house and no human being can live therein, a Brotherhood member will live there in peace. Visions that say that ghosts are after you, armed robbers are coming to attack you, etc., are false. Do not fear when you are told such tales, rather tell the visionary that you are ready for all these things. All spirits do know that Brotherhood members are above any attack, spiritually or physically.

Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is protecting the entire world. Whether one comes here or not, one is being protected. The grace and goodness from Brotherhood is sufficient for all races and creations of God. So let us spread this news of good tidings to the people of the world. Stop telling people stories that border on darkness. Most of those visions have no bearing with the tenets of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. They are of worldly spirits.

Whenever you visit a psychic or fortuneteller, he will say that you are very lucky to have visited him, because a rival spirit almost destroyed you. Such things do not happen to members of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. What the fortuneteller said is part of his trade, in order to get money from you. You may be a hundred percent healthy, but he can convince you that you are about to die. These things he says to you to obtain money from you.

Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is a place of freedom and joy. We talk of protection, promotion and love. Do not listen to the visionaries who are possessed of the mundane spirits of darkness. I have sent such elementary spirits out of you. Brotherhood members are untouchable and indestructible, and so you have nothing to fear. Dark forces do not exist anymore. This is the kingdom that should make you happy and contented, for all is well with you.

Read the golden text again.

GOLDEN TEXT: MATTHEW 20:20

Then came to Him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping Him, and desiring a certain thing of Him.

THE CHOSEN ONES:

You have read the text and have assimilated same. Henceforth, I do not want any Brotherhood of the Cross and Star member to indulge in vain talks such as, people hate me, people want to kill me, and so on’. This should not come either in your visions or prophecies. Nobody is against you and no one is planning evil against you. You are the one worrying yourself. Recall Sister Marts who was given a vision that she should go on ministry work to three stations, after that she should celebrate a full feast. This was to act as a buffer and sacrifice, so that her enemies may be taken away. When the Sister heard this, she retorted that she would not undertake such ministry work, neither would she celebrate the feast, for she has no enemies.

Up till this day, nothing has happened to her. Going on ministry work and celebrating a feast are good things to do, but to do them in order to avert a superstitious danger is not allowed. There is no truth in such visions and they are not of the spirit of truth, which is the spirit in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. Though the visionary may shout, do not believe if he tells you negative things.

No one can deceive a member of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star anymore. Recall the testimony of Apostle Bro-Bro. A renown occultist boasted before Bro-Bro that Heaven and Earth are in his palms. However, Bro-Bro, being a devotee of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, told him that Heaven, Earth and all planes of existence are controlled and vitalized by the Holy Father. To attest his authority, the man told Bro-Bro that rain would drench him that very day. However, Bro-Bro refuted that statement and told him that no single drop of rain would touch the ground for the next three days. That was the great bet, he boasted that by his powers, rain would fall that same day. Bro-Bro boasted that by his Father’s power, rain would not fall for three days.

The man rushed into his inner room and brought his mystic book. He performed all his rituals to command rain to fall, yet the sun was very bright. Not even rain clouds formed in the sky. He tried everything mystical and diabolical to invoke the angel that controls the rain, but all his efforts ended in a terrible fiasco. There were no drops of rain for three days as commanded by the Brotherhood child. Finally, the man accepted that he has seen a greater power than his. Now, I want everybody to resemble the Father who is here present.

Do not fear when you are told that an angel can harm you. Have you not read that all angels are commanded to worship the Son of God? You are free wherever you are, spiritually or physically. The Holy Spirit has taken dominion over all things. If you are a visionary, you have to watch your messages, so that you will not clash with the Holy Spirit. There is no death for any person here. Visionaries should stop telling people those things. This is the time of joy and peace. The Father is always with you even when you are on ministry work. Right now, the Father is working for those crusaders who are here with Him.

The kingdom is destined for those whom the Father chose from the beginning. You do not acquire it by wealth, wisdom or works. You do not come in by your power. You were destined to be here, and thus, the kingdom is given to you gratis. Where is Biakpan, Biase, Cross River State or Nigeria that should have merited this glory? This is an indication that He saves us free; out of His divine grace and love. You have to be in peace with all people. Purity your mind and do not bear malice against any person. Do not indulge in diabolical preparation of any kind. Such things do not have power, neither do they exist. They only exist imaginary. Do not commit fornication or adultery, for such is not acceptable before God. Those whose intentions are in marrying, should read Luke 20:34-35, where it is stated that those who are counted worthy of this kingdom neither marry nor are given in marriage. There is nothing called marriage in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, for we are all brothers and sisters.

Recall when the disciples of John the Baptist reported to him that the very man who he baptized, was baptizing other people. John replied unto them that he had always told them that no man can receive anything, unless it is given from above (John 3:26-27). The disciples were talking about Our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Lord Jesus Christ was baptized by John the Baptist, and the disciples of Jesus Christ were baptizing other people. If it were a mundane affair, this act would have ended in seriousness. It however, ended peacefully, because John knew the intricacies of the Kingdom of God.

I have always told you not to be bothered by what people do, or whatsoever happens in this world. Someone may get baptized into Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, only to go out and establish his own church. There is nothing wrong with this, and it does not call for hatred. Do not even be jealous of such a person. Realize that one cannot do anything by ones volition, except that which God has destined. So take care of what you say, hear and believe.

You have heard the worldly people saying that Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is a Beelzebub organization. Watch and see what is happening and what will happen to them. What they are saying is motivated by the type of spirit that possesses them. They are saying all these things so that the members of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star will join their various churches and organizations.

If you are a spirited child, hold onto the spirit of truth, send packing all the spirits of falsehood. Hold fast to the truth for this is the time of truth.

THE GOD OF RECONSTRUCTION:

The Father Himself is dwelling with men to straighten all things and reconstruct them. But for the presence of the Father, would South Africa have had peace? Do you think it is Satan that gave them the peace? For the past three hundred years, have the South Africans had peace like they are having now? What about the serious peace moves going on between the Israelites, Arabs and Palestinians? Is it a result of the Israeli’s negotiating capability? Is not this very God responsible for the peace in the Middle East? He is the very one instilling peace in all parts of the world.

That community called Biakpan had never seen real peace. Now, go to Biakpan and you will see real peace there. Is it not this God that is responsible for this? You need to visit Biakpan and behold the type of love that is flourishing there. Do you think Satan is the cause?

The Father is the one that is the cause and effect of everything. Before this time, every person in Biakpan was on his own, no cooperation. Now, what would make you believe stories or visions of doom? Why should you be threatened, when you are told that you would be imprisoned? Have you not heard testimonies of people convicted, but at Father’s pronouncements were discharged and acquitted? Have you not seen or heard of people given termination letters in their places of work, only to be promoted in consonance with the Holy Father’s pronouncement? All works are done by God.

THE ABORIGINES:

Do not steal or deceive people, so that you may use the proceeds thereof to serve God. You have to use your voice to sing praises unto Him. Do not become ashamed or offended when one person donates a million dollars for the service of God. Do not think that you would be sent away, since you cannot donate anything. You are an aborigine of this kingdom. You are at freedom and you were destined to be here before the foundations of the world were laid. Though someone may build several houses or donate billions of dollars, in order to take your place, he cannot succeed. Rather, he will continue in his place. while you remain here.

There may be millions or billions of white brethren and people from other races in this kingdom, yet, every person has his own glory and mansion. So, this is not a place to struggle for possessions and/or position. This is the place where love, peace and joy reign. Therefore, hold onto the things that promote love, peace and joy. Always use the telephone number of your Father, which you know.
