TEXT: 1 CORINTHIANS 12: 1- END

1: Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant. 2: Ye blow that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led. 3: Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. 4: Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5: And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6: And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. 1′. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. 8: For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9: To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10: To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. 12; For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 13: For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 14: For the body is not one member, but many. 15: If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 16: And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 17: If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 18: But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. 19: And if they were all one member, where were the body? 20: But now are they many members, yet but one body. 21: And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 22: Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: 23: And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. 24: For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked 25: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 26: And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. 27: Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 28: And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 29: Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 30: Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 31: But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

LOVE IS GREATEST

I have decided to use the above text as a source of this lecture because of the turnout of events in the world today. I want everyone to reflect on the text with the view of deriving one or two lessons from the excerpt.

2. If one looks around the world today to see what is going on, he will discover that so many people are too arrogant. Even here in Brotherhood some people do not allow others to speak where they are because they think that those ones are not as rich as they are.

3.         The fact that you have money does not make you a reservoir of knowledge.

4.         Many people think that because they are rich, they are therefore the only cocks to crow. People do not want any other person to play any part in the Bethel because they claim they single- handedly built it.

5.         Many people who are blessed with different gift brag and boast about their talents. Those who are blessed with the gift of vision would stop giving visions to people at the slightest provocation so that people would know their importance in the Bethel. Man cannot perform the duty of fishes, animals, birds, rodents, insects, bacteria and other micro organisms and vice versa. God has a purpose for His creation. Man should shun discrimination and work towards helping others to function effectively for the overall interest of the entire system.

6.         Those given the ability to preach would discontinue any time they are not happy. These people would always hold people to ransom, all because they want people to recognise their talent. They want to prove that they are indispensable. These sums up the fact that man is arrogant with what he has.

7.         Another point to note is that everybody is a part in the whole system. That is to say, no one can effectively function in isolation.

8.         The whole system within which we all operate with our various gifts could best be likened to a combustible engine. Even a small nut can render the whole engine ineffective.

9.         But if all the component parts are functional, then the engine can operate effectively. Whatever your talent is, contribute your quota to the success of the entire system.

10.       I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT OF ALL THE GIFTS, LOVE IS THE GREATEST OF THEM ALL. This is why it is summarised in l Corinthians 12: 31 thus: “But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way.”

11.       There is no person, nation, or group of people that can shape this world to the standard expected by God. Neither the whites nor the blacks can make the world a good place to live in.

12.       This is to emphasise the fact that no one should look down on anybody, no matter how lowly placed the person is. Do not judge anybody if the person is not practicing the word of God.

13.       Put in your best and work towards the glory of God. What you should know is that, everybody is blessed with one gift or the other and certain individuals are entitled to certain rights and privileges, which others are not. 14.            DO NOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST ANY CREATURE. . EVERY CREATURE HAS A DEFINITE PURPOSE ON EARTH. Everything works towards the glory of the Creator.

15.       As far as love is concerned, we are indivisible whole. We should not bother ourselves for anything because everything has its own function.

16.       Man cannot perform the duty of fishes, animals, birds, rodents, insects, bacteria and other microorganisms and vice versa.  God has a purpose for His creation. Man should shun discrimination and work towards helping others to function effectively for the overall interest of the entire system.

17.       This lecture is a thought provoking one. Someone may say that he is not a member of Brotherhood but the person is a taxi driver who conveys people from one place to another, by the virtue of his job, he is a member of Brotherhood because, without him, the movement of people could not have been impossible.

18.       And if people could not move from one place to another, they would not have performed their duty. The entire system therefore would have paralysed.

19.       We are all members of Brotherhood and functional units of the whole system. If one of us ceases to function effectively, the consequence is that the entire system will be affected adversely.

20.       For someone to claim that he is not a member of Brotherhood shows that the person is a liar. As long as you were created by God, you are a member of Brotherhood.

21.       It does not matter where you belong. Wherever you are, you must perform your functions. Everybody has a task ahead of him to perform in order to enhance the effectiveness of the overall system within which we all exist.

22.       For instance before one accepts to live in a decent modern house, many things are taken into consideration. There must be a kitchen, toilet, bathroom, water, electricity among other necessary things and if a house lacks these, then it cannot be seen as a modern house.

WHO IS A BROTHEROOD

23.       The government provides her citizens with social facilities like schools, hospitals, markets, recreational centers etc. All these things are meant to improve the lot of the masses, yet they claim they are not members of Brotherhood. The fact that you contribute to better the lots of human race is enough for you to be a Brotherhood member.

24.       So long as you are interested in the comfort of your fellow man, you are a Brotherhood member because Brotherhood is love. You should know that all gifts are from God and no matter how a man lives his life, God is responsible.

25.       The spirit in human beings is the same but people are differently gifted. We should therefore see ourselves as one indivisible whole.

26.       If anything happens to anyone, (a unit in the system) it will definitely affect all of us. This is so because one faulty unit has a negative chain effect on the entire system.

27.       The entire world is one and we are attached to it through love. The angels, sun, moon, star, men, birds, animals, plants, insects, water, air etc, are all components of this system.

28.       What keeps the world is the unity, which exists among God’s creation. Even within your body, there are various functional sub-units. If any part fails to function, you will automatically cease to function.

29.       Do not fail to serve God because of one thing or the other. You should know that God sees and knows everything. You want to be a millionaire, Governor, President, Professor etc. but have you intimated the owner of these positions?

30.       Why do you think that you can successfully get hold of these things without first informing God, the owner and Creator of everything and positions? You should know that, if you work for me, I will work for you.

31.       Endless and brutal struggle for wealth and position are not the best ways to get them. God is the owner of everything, heaven and earth etc, are all His. He is also responsible for sharing them.

32.       He gives His things to those He loves and to those who serve Him and keep to His words; and not to someone who scrambles and wants to grab

33.       Another interesting point to note is that, in each of these functional sub-divisions, there is always one to lead and control the affairs and proper functioning of the entire set up.

34.       That is why in all countries, communities, towns, villages and families, a particular person is elected to rule other members. It is sheer foolishness to think that a man cannot rule over you.

35.       This is the handiwork of God and nobody can change this order. The Scripture at l Corinthians 9:24-27 states: “Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown but we are incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.”

36.       By now, you should realise that, whatever happens on earth was already recorded in the scriptures. It is said that, “…they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize”. Now, take a look at the politics of the world, many people will vie for a post where millions of money is spent on campaign yet, only one person will be elected into the post and others will suffer defeat and financial loss.

37.       The world is working according to God’s plan. Man must rule to confirm God’s words and many will fight to be elected to rule but at last, one out of a lot will be selected. Whoever is elected will be the ruler, and as a part of that system, one cannot reject that person’s rule.

38.       Immediately the mantle of leadership is given to the elected person, he becomes the ruler and you, the subject. If you cannot accept man to rule you, I wonder whether you want a tree to rule you. It is only man that was created to rule and it is a matter of necessity that man must rule.

39.       People’s ambition for leadership and rejection of another leader comes from arrogance. It is better to accept things the way God wants them. We should not discriminate against anybody because we are one in God.

40.       Do not rejoice for your high position, qualification or sex. Many people make false claim that it is president Babangida who is ruling Nigeria. If this is true, what about God?

41.       If there were no air, land, trees, water and human beings etc, as created by God, what would he rule? Many people are myopic by misappropriating government funds because according to them, government money belongs to nobody. This trend should stop.

42.       You cannot cheat someone in order to survive. Those you cheat to swell your purse are God’s children. Such unwholesome act cannot contribute to the well-being of the world.

43.       God keeps you in your position so that you can work hard to alleviate other’s problems. You are not to use your position to contribute to another person’s woes in life. And you should share whatever God gives you with others.

44.       When making policy decisions, you should be fair to all persons irrespective of tribe, class and sex. Let the interest of the people you rule be uppermost. Do not introduce politics into religion. In governing, you should be guided by God’s injunctions and you should practice love.

45.       Do not see yourself as being superior to another person and you should not look down on any particular race or tribe as inferior.

46.       God owns everything that sustains man. We should see ourselves as our brother’s keepers and know that whatever one does to another, same will be done to him. And believe also that whatever a man sows same will he reap.

47.       Do not struggle for position. One thing you must know is that, one person must rule at a time. And if you were destined to rule at the appointed time, you will definitely rule.

48.       Do not blame anybody for the strange happenings in the world because God is responsible for everything. Take this illustration as a lesson.

ILLUSTRATION

49.       There was a queen and a widow with four children who lived in a certain village. The queen, because of her position, claimed one of the widow’s plots. The widow being a less-privileged person went to the court to seek redress.

50.       But contrary to her expectation, the court decided the case in favour of the queen. Out of frustration, the widow decided to seek vengeance in the hands of God. She got baptized into a particular church and then presented her case to the pastor of the church.

51.       The pastor advised her to forget about the plot but that she should take up preaching. Before now, she had been given a religious pamphlet to read. She was touched by the contents of the pamphlet. As such, the woman and her children accepted to do the work of God wholeheartedly.

52.       The queen had no child and during holidays she played host to her nephew. One day this boy was still enjoying his holiday with the queen, he came across the widow’s daughter and became interested in her and decided to marry her.

53.       The boy vowed never to get married to any other woman if not the widow’s daughter. He loved the girl so much that He would not want anything to stand between him and the girl.

54.       And to lure the widow into accepting her daughter to be married to the queen’s nephew, the boy decided to undertake the entire financial burden and education of the widow’s other children.

55.       Due to the fact that the queen had no child, this boy became the heir to her property and estate. Not long after the nephew took the widow’s daughter for marriage, the queen died. And accord­ing to her “Will”, the nephew became the owner of all she had acquired including the land she usurped from the widow.

56.       As God would have it, because of the extent of love the man had for his wife (the widow’s daughter), he also made his Will where the wife became the legal inheritor of his property.

57.       Not long after, the man also died. And now the questions is, who was the owner of both the queen’s property and that of the nephew? Whom would you say is responsible for that situation?

58.       The above illustration confirms the fact that whatever God keeps for you; there is no one on earth that can take it from you. It becomes a matter of amusement for one to see a man scramble for property and even go to the extent of killing another for it.

59.       You scramble and eliminate people simply because you want to be wealthy. Is this behaviour in line with the teachings of Christ? The scripture says in: Matthew 6: 33. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

60.       Do not fail to serve God because of one thing or the other. You should know that God sees and knows everything. You want to be a millionaire, governor, president, professor etc.

61.       But have you intimated the owner of these positions? Why do you think that you can successfully get hold of these things without first informing God, the owner and Creator of everything and positions?

62.       You should know that, if you work for me, I would work for you. Endless and brutal struggle for wealth and position are not the best ways to get them. God is the owner of everything, the heaven, the earth etc, are all His. He is also responsible for sharing them.

63.       He gives the things to those He loves and to those who serve Him and keep to His words, and not to someone who scrambles and wants to grab. If you like consult witch doctors or hire thugs to assist you to eliminate your competitors, you are deceiving yourself because the will of God must be done at the end of it all. I want you to take particular note of the following texts:

Matthew 6: 33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”

Matthew 22: 37 “And Jesus said unto him, THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, AND WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY MIND.”

1 Peter 3:12 “For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil”

1 Corinthian 8: 3 “But if any man love God, the same is known of him”.

l Timothy 4: 8 “For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come”.

64.       Ponder over these excerpts. The carnal things and the struggle to achieve them have little profit. How long can one stay in the office as a governor or president despite his desperate moves, and of what gain are these positions to God?

65.       One must know that the things of this world have a limited life span but God’s things are for eternity. Nothing is greater than the gift of God.

66.       Everything belongs to Him and He gives these things only to those He loves. It is sheer foolishness for one to be so desperate and frantic to get at a particular goal. You should bear in mind that you cannot get what God did not give to you despite your effort.

67.       And except He loves you, you cannot get anything from Him. For you to induce God to love you, then you must as a necessity, do His will.

68.       Why did God make Abraham the Father of all nations? Was it not because of his righteousness and faith in God? Romans 4:13. “For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

69.       If this is so, why then do you feel like killing anybody who stands between you and your goal in order to attain your dream? How comfortable are those who forced their ways into power? Have they not been abased?

70.       I bring the truth to you through My teachings because the world is empty and vain. I do not want anybody to fall into the similar ways of old.

71.       I want everybody to realise that there is no gain in the worldly positions and wealth. The best and most rewarding thing to do is to serve God and receive His blessings, which will bring other things to you.

72.       The rational thing for man to do is to shun all the unprofitable things and decide to serve God with all his body and soul so that He may see him through his problems and exalt Him accordingly. Try God by doing His work and see if He will not surprise you with His abundant blessings.

73.       What on earth is greater than the promise God made to Abraham? God told him to flee his birthplace to an unknown land. He did not resist but hearkened to the still voice. Today has the promise of God to Abraham not come to pass? And that promise has passed on to his descendants.

74.       What we enjoy now are the fruits of God’s promise to our forefather – Abraham. Galatians 3:27- 29 states: “For as many of you that have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male of female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

75.       We are the heirs of Abraham. In other words, all the children of God are the heirs of Abraham. Abraham was called the friend of God because he pleased God by obeying Him.

76.       Those politicians, millionaires, warriors and impostors of the world who want to get a particular thing by fair or foul means should read this gospel between lines.

77.       All those who seek for power; thieves and dupes among others, the message of this gospel should dawn on you now. I laugh you to scorn whenever I sit back to see all the mess you engage in all in the name of succeeding.

78.       And for the fact that you want the Father to grant your request, you come here to give false impression about yourself.

79.       Immediately you leave this premises, you go back to your former habit and claim that you tricked Leader Obu and got what you want? In this case, you are rather deceiving yourself and not God.

LEARN FROM HISTORY

80.       You cannot get anything from God except you heed to His instruction. Your claim that you have got everything is completely false. You have not got anything.

81.       God is the owner of everything and He gives to whom He loves. And except you do His work you cannot get His love. And except He loves you, you cannot get His favour.

82.       If God decides to give the entire world to you, there is nobody who can take it from you. This is the knowledge that the world is yet to come by.

83.       I therefore charge you to go out and get the world informed that God is the owner and giver of all things. And our father, Abraham had God’s favour for his faith and obedience for God.

84.       Any of his descendants who abide by God’s words will live to share in these blessings. As long as we are the heirs of Abraham, that promise has been extended to us.

85.       According to the scriptures, God promised to give Abraham a son and that son was no other than Christ. Nobody can nullify God’s promise to man. (Read) Galatians 3:15-16. “Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulled, or addeth thereto. Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

86.       God made this promise to Abraham four thousand years before the actual birth of Christ. We are all the heirs of Abraham, as well as Christ’s.

87.       The birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ was a manifestation of God’s promise to Abraham the Father of all nations. Have you ever heard another person who is being referred to as the father of all nations apart from Abraham?

88.       The most important note from this promise is that, Our Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest of all creations of physical manifestations. And whoever refuses to give Him His due honour is a sinner.

89.       Even when Christ knew His place as the greatest, He did not blow His trumpet; He rather humbled Himself even to the death on the cross. In God’s appreciation, He exalted Christ as the Lord, “to the glory of God the Father”. (Read) Philippians 2: 6-11. “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

90.       God’s promise is ever sure and His will is most favourable and takes precedence over any other thing. He is the only perfect Being. This is why the scripture has it that: “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.”Psalm 127:1

91.       What have you learnt from the mistakes of others like Pharaoh, Nebuchadnezzar, Herod and even the Soviet Union of the contemporary generation?

92.       What God has done in this generation in particular cannot be under-emphasised. His works in other generations were not as pronounced as the ones of this generation.

93.       Before now, the USSR had no regard for God, and their citizens claimed that their country was the strongest and most powerful group in the world. God overlooked their boast and gave them time to repent but they did not.

94.       Today, they have been abased and the world does not know God is responsible for the economic and political woes of the Soviet Union.

95.       America believes that what befalls USSR is their own making. But today, I want everybody to know that every happening is the exclusive responsibility of  God.

96.       Once He makes any pronouncement, it must as of necessity, come to pass at the appointed time. All the frivolous requests like I want a son, cars, money, mansion, qualification, position”, etc, are baseless.

97.       If you serve God and as a result you induce Him to make a promise to you, it then means that you have got everything.

98.       The so-called world super powers spent their resources and time on manufacturing deadly weapons. The entire world was afraid that when these weapons would eventually be launched, the world would be brought to an abrupt end.

99.       But I always promised that despite the huge investment of unimaginable amount of money, no country would launch them.

100.     Many people scoffed My words because according to them, the possibility of the super powers not launching these deadly weapons was very remote. But the question was how could they launch it when the owner of the world has not given them approval?

101.     I HAD MADE MENTION OF THESE THINGS IN MY GOSPEL ENTITLED, “NIGERIA’S IDEOLOGY”. IN IT, I MENTIONED THAT I HAVE SET SOUTH AFRICA FREE OF APARTHEID. IT WAS A MATTER OF TIME. THE FACT THAT I HAD PRONOUNCED FREEDOM FOR THEM THAT ENDED THEIR SUFFERINGS.

102.     THE WORD ‘LET’ HAS NEVER BEEN SO EFFECTIVE EXCEPT NOW THAT THE CREATOR HAS DECIDED TO MAKE USE OF IT AGAIN. ITS FIRST USE WAS DURING CREATION. ALL PRONOUNCEMENTS ARE THEREFORE MADE TO MATERIALISE WITH “LET”. 103.     The main issue of this gospel is taken from Psalm 34: 1-32. The Lord has promised to slay the wicked, those who hate righteousness shall be desolated. “I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.”

104.     If you think that your duty is to scramble for land and eliminating others to reach the top, you will definitely suffer a mysterious death as death is the price you have to pay for your inordinate ambition.

105.     It is often said that the children of the so called prominent people do not turn out good in most cases. There are reasons for such a situation.

106.     A poor man cannot be scrambling for land that does not belong to him rather, it is the affluent who goes about depriving the less privileged people of their legitimate property. But it should be borne in mind that the riches acquired by foul means do not last.

107.     Anybody who inherits evil becomes an evil person and anyone who is groomed in righteousness becomes a righteous person.

108.     If you are bad, then your children will definitely turn out bad. Take King Saul for instance. His two sons both perished in the war between Israel and the Philistine and their father Saul died as a result of the sad news.

109.     That marked the end of Saul. Recall Prophet Eli and his two sons. Though Eli would have been succeeded by one of his sons when he died, God has a way of doing His things.

110.     God decided to pass through Hannah and brought forth Samuel, the child of promise who was favoured by God to succeed Eli.

111.     Eli only regarded Samuel who was taken to him by his mother as a tithe and not as a threat to his throne. He did not have the slightest idea that Samuel would succeed him.

112.     It was the will of God for Eli’s reign to end with him by eliminating his sons who were the possible heirs to his throne. They were both killed in the war front because Samuel was destined to succeed Eli.

113.     I am warning you emphatically to fear the Lord for there is a price for those who do not fear Him. God can do anything, anytime without your consent and nobody can counter His decision.

114.     You have a duty to perform and that is to spread the gospel of God to all the nooks and crannies of the world. You must do it willingly because it was written about you.

115.     If you refuse to do what God assigns to you, you must get ready to face His wrath. The punishment may extend to your offspring.

THE FALL OF ISRAEL

116.     Take the case of Israel into consideration and learn from it. Before now, Israel had been God’s chosen people, but because of disobedience, they have now become a laughing stock in the world today.

117.     They now engage in wars here and there, losing millions of people. What now remains of the Israelites is what should best be described as refugees.

118.     In the whole world, no king was ranked higher than the king of Israel i.e. King Solomon. But because of the adultery and idolatry, he went contrary to God’s ways. This led to the fall of Israel, which hitherto had dominated the world history but today, it has fallen to rise no more.

119.     Israel, which was a renowned race, has almost completely gone out of the list of high- ranking nations. The Roman Empire almost completely wiped them out of the Promised Land.

120.     If they had strictly adhered to the words of God, their Creator, Israel would have been the Kingdom of God by now. What is the position of Israel today with threats from other nations?

121.     Their disobedience is the cause of all these troubles. If they had obeyed God, they would not have had any trouble. If God stands by you there is no man who can challenge you and go scot-free.

122.     Seventy years after the death of Christ, the Roman Empire killed Israelites leaving only seventy thousand people and forced them Out of their land.

123.     They are now living on charity from advanced nations. If you care for anything good to come your way, you have to honour God.

124.     The Americans you are hearing about today are Britons who decided to look for a new place to settle and when they discovered that parcel of land, they decided to settle there.

125.     The present land occupied by the Americans belongs to Indians. Why they survive till today is that, most of them have accepted to serve God. You can know this when you take into account the number of churches that have their Headquarters there.

126.     It is only five hundred years now since British nationals occupied that land. This explains why war broke out when British nationals wanted to leave Britain for the new world – but for the fact that God stood by them because God knew that these sets of people would serve Him in future in the new land.

127.     It is not only the Britons alone who dwell there. Africans too are living there and they are the ones referred to as the African Americans. The blessings of this land knew no bounds when they accepted Brotherhood of the Cross and Star with open hands.

128.     This “new world” does not scoff at God. Many impostors have gone to America to deceive the people that they are gods so as to get houses, cars, aircraft etc by false pretence.

129.     This is only possible in America for the people want God by all means. This consciousness is the source of their rapid pace of development, technologically and economically. They lead the world now.

130.     America knows and values God more than any other country of the world. Before their Senate starts a session, the Senators have to commit the day’s business into God’s hands. They seek for God’s leadership in everything they do. But here, you are still pouring libation.

May My Peace and blessings be with the entire world. Amen.

Thank You Good Teacher
