YOUR RESPONSIBILITY IN THE KINGDOM, (BROTHERHOOD OF
THE CROSS AND STAR).

Let the Bible Lesson be read. Listen attentively so that you will know the nature of the
assignment given to us.
BIBLE LESSON: LUKE 4: 18-20
The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the
poor, He has sent me to mend the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives,
and the recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach
the acceptable year of the Lord. And He closed the book and gave it again to the minister,
and sat down. And the eyes of all of them in the Synagogue were fastened on Him.
THE SPREAD OF THE WORD OF GOD
Brethren, that is what was written about you, for it is stated in the book ofIsaiah that the Spirit of
Jehovah came upon you when you were baptized, and that Spirit is the Word of God. You are a
member of this kingdom, therefore your work is to preach the gospel everywhere. Tell those who
were expecting Him that He has manifested here on earth; that the King of kings and Lord
of lords, the Ruler of the World is here physically on earth, that His reign shall endure for
ever. Go and preach to them not to oppress the orphans, and preach to them to set the captives
free. Do not indulge in any evil practices nor engage in litigations because this is the acceptable
year of Jehovah God and His Christ. Brethren, our primary obligation in this kingdom is to
preach the Word of God to the world and reveal their wrong doings to them. Do not tell people
that God has blessed them and their families, neither should you tell them that God has blessed
them with money, but reveal to them their sins because God is an all-seeing God. That is the
work of the spirit, and the most important assignment in the kingdom. Do not tell people you
want to pray for them or give them visions, for such are immaterial. If I had told you this,
would you have repented? Our local adage has it that if you visit the mother toad and you find
her squatting, you must join her. In other words, when you are in Rome, behave as the Romans
do. So whatsoever work the Father does, same should be done by members of Brotherhood of
the Cross and Star. But those who cannot emulate the Father will be shovm the way out.
Preachers of the WORD OF GOD are the greatest in this kingdom, but if you call yourselfa
prophet, prophets have their ovm assignment. The visioners have theirs, and so do the choristers.
Sometimes you could donate 50 Million Naira or build a mighty Cathedral, thinking that you
have done a noble act. Yes, you have indeed done a noble act, but only partially. Howbeit, your
paramount obligation is to preach the gospel; for this purpose you were anointed. Tell the
people about their evil acts and set the captives free. Go out on the streets, go from house to
house, and go everywhere and inform the people about the reign of the Holy Spirit, because every
person has an assignment to accomplish, therefore, all hands should be on deck. I am telling you
that the Word of God is the only instrument that could be used to destroy and rebuild the world.
It is said those who call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. But the question is "How can
they call on the name of the Lord and be saved when they do not believe in this NEW
NAME OF GOD? How can they believe in the NEW NAME(Rev. 3: l2lRev 2:17IRev14:1),
when there is nobody to introduce THE NEW NAME to them, and how can they hear these
words when there is no righteous preacher who will explain the Word in detail to their
understanding. Though you were not sent earlier, you now have been sent with all authority and
power, to go and preach to them that the Holy Spirit is now with men. He alone is the one to
judge the entire universe on His Judgement.
War has ended everywhere in the world because its time has passed, for, warfare is
outmoded. Warfare has no place in the Era of the Holy Spirit. Our major assignment is to
preach these words of life, words of truth which of course constitute the Word of God. IF YOU
ARE A MEMBER OF BROTHERHOOD OF THE CROSS AND STAR AND YOU HAVE
NOT YET GONE INTO THE VINEYARD WITH YOUR BIBLE, IT MEANS YOU
HAVE NOT YET STARTED PRACTICING THE WORD OF GOD, WHICH ALSO
IMPLIES THAT YOU HAVE NOT YET KNOWN THE DOCTRINE OF
BROTHERHOOD.
CHURCHES WILL CEASE TO OPERATE BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE THE
TRUTH, NOR DO THEY BELIEVE IN THE TRUTH. THEREFORE DISPERSE
THEM WITH THE WORD OF GOD. THEY MUST CLOSE SHOP AND VACATE
THESE CHURCHES FOR THEY ARE NOT PREACHING THE WORD OF GOD, AND
SO THEY MUST GIVE WAY TO THE CHILDREN OF GOD.
Go and tell the world that the time ofjudgement is at hand. There are some who, although they
have received this Word, still harbor doubts in their hearts. Hence you have to go to them and
broaden their understanding.
Let my peace and blessing rest and abide with the entire world.
Thank you Father.

FATHER CONSOLES: You need to see Father help and console the bereaved in the heart. He would say:
"Weep not, your relation is not dead. Death is a cruel word.
There is nothing like it. He has finished his assignment. He needs
the flesh no more. Beyond your sight is another task for him.
After that task he passes on to yet another task till he attains the
crOWD of a perfect life; and where he has gone all shall go.
If you harbor any grief, and give way to sorrow in your
heart, these sentiments will grow greater, and you will be nothing
but grief. Help your relation; for he seeks solace now more than
ever. He is glad when you are glad, and sad when you are sad.
Rise up bury your woes, and smile at grief, and then help others
