WHY WAS CHRIST CRUCIFIED BETWEEN


TWO ROBBERS?
For there is one God, and one mediator
between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
(1Ti_2:5)
For as by one man's disobedience many were made
sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be
made righteous. (Rom 5:19)
PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE BEEN DYING
BUT THE DEATH OF CHRIST HAD A DIFFERENCE.
PEOPLE WOULD NOT HAVE COMPREHENDED OR
VISUALIZED THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHRIST
AND THE OTHER HUMAN BEINGS BUT FOR THE
PROPHESY OF DAVID AS RECORDED IN Psalm 34:20
He keepeth all his bones; not one of them is
broken.
BY LEADER OLUMBA OLUMBA OBU

But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his


side, and forthwith came there out blood and water."
So beloved brethren, you can see that JESUS THE
CHRIST WAS GOD, THE FATHER, AMONG MEN. HE
WAS ALSO CALLED THE SON OF MAN BECAUSE OF
THE BLOOD IN HIM. HE WAS ALSO CALLED THE SON
OF GOD DUE TO THE WATER IN HIM, AND FINALLY,
GOD WHICH THE SPIRIT SIGNIFIES. SO THAT WHEN
HE SAID THAT HE HAD SURRENDERED HIS SPIRIT,
THE FATHER DEPARTED AND HE THEN SLUMBERED.
AND WHEN THE SPEAR PASSED THROUGH HIS
BODY, THE WATER AND BLOOD WHICH CAME OUT
WASHED AWAY ALL OUR SINS AND INIQUITIES.
ONTO THIS DAY THAT BLOOD AND WATER ARE
STILL FLOWING AND WASHING US CLEAN AND
FREE. THIS IS WHERE OUR SALVATION COMES
FROM. IT WAS NOT THE MIRACLES OF HEALING THE
SICK, THE LAME, DEAF, BLIND OR RAISING THE
DEAD THAT REVEALED OR QUALIFIED HIM AS THE
CHRIST; OTHERWISE PETER, PAUL AND THE REST
OF THE APOSTLES WHO WERE ABLE TO PERFORM
SAME COULD EQUALLY HAVE CLAIMED HIS
POSITION.
BY LEADER OLUMBA OLUMBA OBU

THE THIEF ON THE RIGHT HAND SYMBOLIZES THAT


RIGHT FROM HIS ADVENT UNTIL ETERNITY, THERE
IS NO RIGHTEOUS PERSON, AND THERE WILL
NEVER BE. IT IS HIS BLOOD ALONE THAT SAVED
MANKIND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY. HE IS THE
FIRST AND THE LAST (REV 22:13). THIS INDEED IS
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE CRUCIFIXION. IF IN A
THOUSAND YEARS TIME SOMEBODY COMES TO
TELL YOU THAT HE IS YOUR SAVIOUR, DO NOT
BELIEVE HIM. IT IS OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
ALONE WHO IS OUR SAVIOUR. UNTIL ETERNITY HE
IS THE ONLY SAVIOUR. RIGHT FROM ADAM, IF
MOSES OR ANY OTHER PERSON IS MENTIONED AS
YOUR SAVIOUR, THAT IS ERRONEOUS. IT IS OUR
LORD JESUS CHRIST ALONE WHO IS THE SAVIOUR
OF THE WHOLE WORLD; AND HE HAS NO DEPUTY.

between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
Rom 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many
were made sinners, so by the obedience of one
shall many be made righteous.
Heb 7:26 For such an high priest became us,

who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate


from sinners, and made higher than the
heavens;
Heb 7:27 Who needeth not daily, as those high
priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own
sins, and then for the people's: for this he did
once, when he offered up himself.

Joh 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming


unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God,
which taketh away the sin of the world.
Heb_12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new
covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that
speaketh better things than that of Abel.

THE BODY AND BLOOD OF OUR LORD


JESUS CHRIST
Joh 6:51 I am the living bread which came down
from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall
live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my
flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
Joh 6:48 I am that bread of life.
Mar 14:24 And he said unto them, This is my blood
of the new testament, which is shed for many.
Mat 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament,
which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

OF THEM WHICH THOU GAVEST ME HAVE I


LOST NONE.
Joh 18:7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye?
And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
Joh 18:8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am
he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:
Joh 18:9 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he
spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost
none.
NO MAN CAN COME TO ME, EXCEPT THE FATHER
WHICH HATH SENT ME DRAW HIM: AND I WILL
RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY. (JOH 6:44 )
ALL THAT THE FATHER GIVETH ME SHALL COME TO
ME; AND HIM THAT COMETH TO ME I WILL IN NO
WISE CAST OUT. JOH 6:37
Joh 6:33 For the bread of God is he which cometh
down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
Joh 6:34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore
give us this bread.
Joh 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread
of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger;
and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
Joh 6:36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen
me, and believe not.

Joh 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to


me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise
cast out.
Joh 6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do
mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
Joh 6:39 And this is the Father's will which hath
sent me, that of all which he hath given me I
should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at
the last day.
Joh 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me,
that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth
on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise
him up at the last day.
Joh 6:41 The Jews then murmured at him, because
he said, I am the bread which came down from
heaven.
Joh 6:42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of
Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is
it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?
Joh 6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto
them, Murmur not among yourselves.
Joh 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father
which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him
up at the last day.
Joh 6:45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall
be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath
heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto
me.

Joh 6:46 Not that any man hath seen the Father,
save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
Joh 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that
believeth on me hath everlasting life.
Joh 6:48 I am that bread of life.
Mat 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took
bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to
the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
Mat 26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks,
and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
Mat 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament,
which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Mat 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink
henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day
when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.
Mar 14:22 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread,
and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and
said, Take, eat: this is my body.
Mar 14:23 And he took the cup, and when he had
given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank
of it.
Mar 14:24 And he said unto them, This is my blood
of the new testament, which is shed for many.
Mar 14:25 Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more
of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it
new in the kingdom of God.

ONE MEDIATOR
1Ti_2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator
between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Rom 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many
were made sinners, so by the obedience of one
shall many be made righteous.
Gal 4:3 Even so we, when we were children, were in
bondage under the elements of the world:
Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come,
God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made
under the law,
Gal 4:5 To redeem them that were under the law,
that we might receive the adoption of sons.
Heb 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the
new testament, that by means of death, for the
redemption of the transgressions that were under
the first testament, they which are called might
receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
Heb 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent
ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a
better covenant, which was established upon
better promises.

Heb 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless,


then should no place have been sought for the
second.
Heb 7:26 For such an high priest became us, who is
holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners,
and made higher than the heavens;
Heb 7:27 Who needeth not daily, as those high
priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins,
and then for the people's: for this he did once,
when he offered up himself.
1Jn 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto
you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an
advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the
righteous:
1Jn 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and
not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole
world.
Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are
partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself
likewise took part of the same; that through death
he might destroy him that had the power of death,
that is, the devil;

Heb 2:15 And deliver them who through fear of


death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Heb 2:16 For verily he took not on him the nature of
angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
Heb 2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to
be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a
merciful and faithful high priest in things
pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the
sins of the people.
Heb 2:18 For in that he himself hath suffered being
tempted, he is able to succour them that are
tempted.
Joh 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming
unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God,
which taketh away the sin of the world.
Joh 1:30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh
a man which is preferred before me: for he was
before me.
Joh 1:31 And I knew him not: but that he should be
made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come
baptizing with water.
Joh 1:32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the
Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it
abode upon him.
Joh 1:33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to
baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon
whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and

remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth


with the Holy Ghost.
Joh 1:34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the
Son of God.
Joh 1:35 Again the next day after John stood, and
two of his disciples;
Joh 1:36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he
saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

Heb 7:19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the
bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we
draw nigh unto God.
Heb 7:20 And inasmuch as not without an oath he
was made priest:
Heb 7:21 (For those priests were made without an
oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto
him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art
a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)
Heb 7:22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a
better testament.
Heb 7:23 And they truly were many priests, because
they were not suffered to continue by reason of
death:
Heb 7:24 But this man, because he continueth ever,
hath an unchangeable priesthood.

Heb 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to


the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing
he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
Heb 7:26 For such an high priest became us, who is
holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners,
and made higher than the heavens;
Heb 7:27 Who needeth not daily, as those high
priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins,
and then for the people's: for this he did once,
when he offered up himself.
Heb 7:28 For the law maketh men high priests which
have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was
since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated
for evermore.
Heb 9:11 But Christ being come an high priest of
good things to come, by a greater and more
perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to
say, not of this building;
Heb 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves,
but by his own blood he entered in once into the
holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for
us.
Heb 9:13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and
the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean,
sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
Heb 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ,
who through the eternal Spirit offered himself

without spot to God, purge your conscience from


dead works to serve the living God?
Heb 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the
new testament, that by means of death, for the
redemption of the transgressions that were under
the first testament, they which are called might
receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
Heb 9:16 For where a testament is, there must also
of necessity be the death of the testator.
Heb 9:17 For a testament is of force after men are
dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the
testator liveth.
Heb 9:18 Whereupon neither the first testament was
dedicated without blood.
Heb 9:19 For when Moses had spoken every precept
to all the people according to the law, he took the
blood of calves and of goats, with water, and
scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the
book, and all the people,
Heb 9:20 Saying, This is the blood of the testament
which God hath enjoined unto you.
Heb 9:21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the
tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.
Heb 9:22 And almost all things are by the law
purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is
no remission.

SO WE, BEING MANY, ARE ONE BODY IN


CHRIST, AND EVERY ONE MEMBERS
ONE OF ANOTHER.
Rom 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me,
to every man that is among you, not to think of
himself more highly than he ought to think; but to
think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every
man the measure of faith.
Rom 12:4 For as we have many members in one
body, and all members have not the same office:
Rom 12:5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ,
and every one members one of another.
THE DISCIPLES STRUGGLED AMONG THEMSELVES
WHO WOULD BE THE GREATEST AMONGST THEM.
BUT SINCE OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TOOK HIS
PHYSICAL EXISTENCE FROM THIS EARTH PLAIN,
WHICH OF THEM STEPPED INTO HIS SHOES? NO
PERSON TOOK OVER FROM HIM. EACH PERSON IS
OCCUPYING HIS OWN POSITION. THERE IS THE
DIVISION OF LABOUR AND NO PERSON
ENCROACHES ON THE POSITION OF OTHERS. THE
GOLDEN TEXT SHOULD NOW BE READ.

IT IS NOT EXPECTED THAT ANY ONE SHOULD


DECLARE HIMSELF TO BE JESUS OR CHRIST, OR
JEHOVAH OR GOD. DO WE NEED MANY JESUSES?
HE IS THE MASTER, THE LORD OF LORDS AND
THE KING OF KINGS. HE IS IN HEAVEN, ON
EARTH AND IN US. HE DIED ONCE FOR THE SAKE
OF OUR SINS. FROM THENCE LIVES HE A LIFE OF
RIGHTEOUSNESS.
AS MANY AS BELIEVE IN OUR LORD JESUS
CHRIST AS THE SON OF GOD, THE SAME HAVE
RIGHT TO BE CALLED THE CHILDREN OF GOD.
ALL THOSE WHO HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE
SPIRIT TESTIFY THAT OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
IS HERE. HE IS DOING THE WORK; HE IS THE
MASTER, THE LORD OF LORDS AND THE KING OF
KINGS. HE IS IN HEAVEN, ON EARTH AND IN US.
HE DIED ONCE FOR THE SAKE OF OUR SINS.
FROM THENCE LIVES HE A LIFE OF
RIGHTEOUSNESS FOREVER.
IT IS NOT EXPECTED THAT ANY OTHER PERSON
SHOULD DIE. IT IS NOT GIVEN THAT THOSE WHO
BELIEVE IN HIM SHOULD DIE. THOSE WHO
BELIEVE IN HIM MUST HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. AND
IT IS NOT EXPECTED THAT ANY ONE SHOULD
DECLARE HIMSELF TO BE JESUS OR CHRIST, OR
JEHOVAH OR GOD. DO WE NEED MANY JESUSES?
IS THE ONE WE HAVE NOT SUFFICIENT? IT IS

NOT ALSO EXPECTED THAT ANYONE SHOULD


GAZE AT THE SKY. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM
THE SKY? THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, TRULY I SAY
UNTO YOU, HE WHO BELIEVES IN ME, THE
WORKS THAT I DO SHALL HE DO, GREATER
WORKS THAN THIS SHALL HE DO. IF YOU
BELIEVE IN HIM AND DO GREATER WORKS, WHAT
ELSE DO YOU EXPECT OF HIM IN THE SKY?

"Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the
first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was
dead already, they brake not his legs. But one of the
soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith
came there out blood and water."
Though the soldier did not know the significance
of what he did, his action revealed the man on
the Cross as the Christ, while the blood was the
son of man and the spirit was the Father.

So beloved brethren, you can see that JESUS THE


CHRIST WAS GOD, THE FATHER, AMONG MEN. HE
WAS ALSO CALLED THE SON OF MAN BECAUSE OF
THE BLOOD IN HIM. HE WAS ALSO CALLED THE SON

Read LUKE 2:34-35 for confirmation:

"Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again
of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be
spoken against; (Yea, a sword shall pierce thy own
soul also) that the thoughts of many shall be
revealed."
Healing the sick or raising the dead are not what
revealed Christ as God; for even from the time of
Moses, those miracles were taking place. From the
olden days, visions and prophesies existed and these
are not the things that reveal God to man. However,
the things that reveal God to man are clearly
highlighted in this sermon.
PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE BEEN DYING
BUT THE DEATH OF CHRIST HAD A DIFFERENCE.
PEOPLE WOULD NOT HAVE COMPREHENDED OR
VISUALIZED THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHRIST
AND THE OTHER HUMAN BEINGS BUT FOR THE
PROPHESY OF DAVID AS RECORDED IN Psalm 34:20
"He keepeth all his bones; not one of them is
broken."
This was fulfilled accordingly. The second point
which identified Jesus as the Christ was His
significant crucifixion between two robbers. AND
WHY WAS CHRIST CRUCIFIED BETWEEN TWO
ROBBERS? Let it be known that, the spirit in Him
kept the two robbers alive until when He made the

pronouncement: "Father, into thy hands I commend


my spirit." If Christ had not surrendered His spirit
into the Father's hand, he would not have died. THIS
EXPLAINS THE FACT THAT THE SPIRIT IS LIFE, AND
AS LONG AS IT REMAINS IN MAN, HE CANNOT DIE.
If Christ had not died at the time He was supposed
to die, His bones could have been broken, according
to the culture of the time. And so, when the Jews
went to inspect them on the Cross, they found out
that He had died; hence His bones were not broken,
in fulfillment of the prophesy of David as cited above.
However, the legs of the other two robbers were
broken since they were not dead at the time of
inspection. To test whether He was the Christ, the
Jews pierced His side and instantly, water and blood
gushed out through the hole made by the spear.
(John 19:32-34)
Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the
first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was
dead already, they brake not his legs. But one of the
soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith
came there out blood and water.
BY LEADER OLUMBA OLUMBA OBU

EVERYTHING HAPPENED ACCORDING TO THE WILL


OF GOD. THIS IS A PROOF THAT GOD IS THE CAUSE
AND EFFECT OF ALL THINGS.
All those who died from the time of ADAM were
under the imprisonment of death. None of them was
able to ascend unto heaven. This is because they
were under the yoke of evil and hades. As such,
when Christ cried out on the cross, the curtains of
the temple tore, the graves of the saints were
opened and they emerged from the graves. SEE
MATTHEW 27:50-53 FOR CONFIRMATION. Jesus,
when he had cried again with a loud voice yielded up
the ghost. And behold, the veil of the temple was
rent in twain from the top to the bottom and the
earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves
were opened, and many bodies of the saints which
slept arose, And came out of the graves after his
resurrection, and went into the holy city and
appeared unto many.
IT WAS CHRIST'S ASSIGNMENT TO SUBDUE DEATH
AND COLLECT ITS KEY. HAVING OVERCOME THE
POWER OF DEATH AND HADES AND COLLECTED ITS
KEYS, DEATH DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE. NOTHING
IMPRISONS AGAIN ( HEBREWS 2:14-15). THIS IS
WHY THE POPULATION OF THE WORLD INCREASES
BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS. NOW OUR LORD JESUS
CHRIST IS THE KING AND LORD OVER ALL PLANES

OF MANIFEST, INCLUDING HEAVEN AND EARTH. HE


RULES OVER ALL THINGS CREATED BY GOD. AND
WHEN PERFECTION WILL BE THE ORDER OF THE
DAY, THERE WILL BE NO MORE DEATH.
BY LEADER OLUMBA OLUMBA OBU

I WANT TO TELL YOU WHY CHRIST WAS


CRUCIFIED BETWEEN TWO THIEVES.
1Ti_2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator
between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
THE TWO THIEVES ON THE CROSS:
Rom 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many
were made sinners, so by the obedience of one
shall many be made righteous.
CHRIST IS THE MEDIATOR OF THE NEW COVENANT
I want to tell you why He was crucified between two
thieves, one on His left and the other on his right
hand side (Luke 23:33). Even the professors of
religion do not know the meaning of the two thieves
being crucified on either side.
The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit constitute
the Triune God. Love hope and faith constitute one

God. The three persons on the cross meant one


person in effect. Thursday is a great day. Friday and
Saturday are also great days. These three days were
meant for three important celebrations of the Jews.
He was crucified in the middle of the two thieves
because He is the mediator of the New Covenant.
The thief on His left signifies that from the time of
Adam until the advent of the Christ there was no
single righteous man. The Bible has truly stated
there is none righteous, no, not one (Rom 3:10). And
so the thief on the left signified that from Adam until
He came, there was no righteous person. All of them
were thieves(JOHN 10:8). And so it is His blood that
saved and justified all those who lived from the time
of Adam until His advent.
THE THIEF ON THE RIGHT HAND SYMBOLIZES THAT
RIGHT FROM HIS ADVENT UNTIL ETERNITY, THERE
IS NO RIGHTEOUS PERSON, AND THERE WILL
NEVER BE. IT IS HIS BLOOD ALONE THAT SAVED
MANKIND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY. HE IS THE
FIRST AND THE LAST (REV 22:13). THIS INDEED IS
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE CRUCIFIXION. IF IN A
THOUSAND YEARS TIME SOMEBODY COMES TO
TELL YOU THAT HE IS YOUR SAVIOUR, DO NOT

BELIEVE HIM. IT IS OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST


ALONE WHO IS OUR SAVIOUR. UNTIL ETERNITY HE
IS THE ONLY SAVIOUR. RIGHT FROM ADAM, IF
MOSES OR ANY OTHER PERSON IS MENTIONED AS
YOUR SAVIOUR, THAT IS ERRONEOUS. IT IS OUR
LORD JESUS CHRIST ALONE WHO IS THE SAVIOUR
OF THE WHOLE WORLD; AND HE HAS NO DEPUTY.
OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, THE SAVIOUR OF THE
WORLD
God has always done His thing in a marvelous way.
That is why when you see something that is not
clean, you attribute it to Satan. Whatever has a fault
is Satan. That is why we use this opportunity to tell
you that there is no other Savior apart from Him. Our
Lord Jesus Christ is the Savior of the whole world.
He is the Beginning and the End; the First and the
Last. That is why He alone has the right to judge the
just and the unjust. He alone loves man. Whether you
are a thief or a liar, Our Lord Jesus Christ loves you
because He alone has mercy.
That is why the Father says, after those days I will
put my laws into their minds and will write them in
their hearts. A neighbor shall not teach his neighbor

and a brother shall not teach his brother, saying,


know the Lord. For they shall all know me from the
least to the greatest. Because I will be merciful to
their unrighteousness and their sins and iniquities I
will remember no more. (Heb. 8:11-12). Right from
the sin of Adam until eternity, God does not
remember our sins again. This has been
accomplished by the death of Our Lord Jesus Christ
on the cross between the two thieves.
This lesson is given to you so that you may know
that He is your Saviour. It is not your father or mother
or brother or Abraham who has saved you. Our Lord
Jesus Christ is the only Saviour of the world. He is
the Son of man, the Son of God and God Himself. The
second lesson will now be read.
Second Bible Lesson: Matthew 12:40
For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the
belly of the whale, so shall the Son of man be three
days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Have you heard that? Since the Jews seek for signs
and the Greeks for wisdom, that is the sign that He
showed to them. That as Jonah was three days and
three nights in the whales belly, so shall the Son of

man be three days and three nights in the heart of


the earth. Is it not clear to you from this what is
meant by the Trinity God?

The Godheads
Thursday represented one God-head, Friday
represented another God-head and Saturday another;
and so we have tri-personal God. That is why we
baptize in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit. That is why also everything is
shared here equally. That explains why baptism in
Brotherhood is quite different from baptism in any
other place in the world. During the first immersion,
it is said, I baptize you in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. You repeat
the same words during the second and the third
immersions. These make up three which is one in
effect. Feel the pulses in your body during
celebrations such as this. All the sicknesses you
came with, court cases, sins, poverty and your lack,
including the old body you came with, all are taken
away by these observances which you honor. That is
what has deluded the whole world, and they keep
asking the type of Bible you have. What actually is
being done in Brotherhood? They do not know that
these observances we celebrate are very significant.
The various commemorative celebrations and
observances constitute the power in Brotherhood.

These constitute the Holy Spirit, love and peace


which you find in the Kingdom. His blood is flooding
in the whole world now, taking away deaths and
tribulations and afflictions.

.

There were two thieves, one on either side of Our


Lord Jesus Christ. Argue then that there was any
righteous man from Adam until His advent. But you
argue that you have no sin. From Adam until eternity
the world is full of thieves. He alone is the righteous
one. He has redeemed us with His blood. What do
you lose to admit that you are a sinner? Our Lord
Jesus Christ takes away your sins and makes you
clean the moment you admit that you are a sinner
and that He died for you. Mention any righteous man
on earth. We are all thieves as evidenced by the two
thieves on His either side. We are saved by grace for
His sake. He is the only Mediator. If you involve Him
in anything it will work well but when you exclude
him, there is no success. He alone has come to
mediate for the whole world because He is the only
righteous one. He intercedes for all the creations of
God. Let our Golden text be read.

BY LEADER OLUMBA OLUMBA OBU


THE SUPERNATURAL TEACHER, AND
SOLE SPIRITUAL HEAD OF THE UNIVERSE
BROTHERHOOD OF THE CROSS AND STAR
EXCERPT FROM THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL: OUR LORD JESUS
CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED ON THURSDAY, NOT FRIDAY

WHY WAS CHRIST CRUCIFIED BETWEEN


TWO ROBBERS?
REVEALING THE CHRIST:
This sermon is a mystery to the entire universe. It
discusses nothing else but the Almighty God who is
even in our midst today. HE IS THE VERY BEING
THAT CAME DIED FOR THE SALVATION OF THE
ENTIRE WORLD. There are things that reveal the
presence and personality of God whenever He
manifests on earth. These things however, should
not have been revealed to babes like you and in
fact, at this time, but to the wise and high-ranking
people of the world. Nevertheless, it has pleased the
Holy Spirit to unveil this wisdom to you today. In fact,
the whole situation is in accordance with the

statement made by Jesus the Christ as recorded in


Luke 10:21
I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
that thou hast hid these things from the wise and
prudent, and has revealed them unto babes: even so,
Father, for so it seemed good in thy sight.
Jesus the Christ was a mystery child. Prophet
Simeon noticed this when he was about to anoint the
infant Jesus and intimated the carnal parents- Mary
and Joseph about this.
Read LUKE 2:34-35 for confirmation:
Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again
of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be
spoken against; (Yea, a sword shall pierce thy own
soul also) that the thoughts of many shall be
revealed.
Healing the sick or raising the dead are not what
revealed Christ as God; for even from the time of
Moses, those miracles were taking place. From the
olden days, visions and prophesies existed and these
are not the things that reveal God to man. However,
the things that reveal God to man are clearly
highlighted in this sermon.

People all over the world have been dying but the
death of Christ had a difference. People would not
have comprehended or visualized the difference
between Christ and the other human beings but for
the prophesy of David as recorded in Psalm 34:20
He keepeth all his bones; not one of them is
broken.
This was fulfilled accordingly. The second point
which identified Jesus as the Christ was His
significant crucifixion between two robbers. AND
WHY WAS CHRIST CRUCIFIED BETWEEN TWO
ROBBERS? Let it be known that, the spirit in Him
kept the two robbers alive until when He made the
pronouncement: Father, into thy hands I commend
my spirit. If Christ had not surrendered His spirit
into the Fathers hand, he would not have died. THIS
EXPLAINS THE FACT THAT THE SPIRIT IS LIFE, AND
AS LONG AS IT REMAINS IN MAN, HE CANNOT DIE.
If Christ had not died at the time He was supposed
to die, His bones could have been broken, according
to the culture of the time. And so, when the Jews
went to inspect them on the Cross, they found out
that He had died; hence His bones were not broken,
in fulfillment of the prophesy of David as cited above.
However, the legs of the other two robbers were
broken since they were not dead at the time of

inspection. To test whether He was the Christ, the


Jews pierced His side and instantly, water and blood
gushed out through the hole made by the spear.
(John 19:32-34)
Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the
first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was
dead already, they brake not his legs. But one of the
soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith
came there out blood and water.
Though the soldier did not know the significance
of what he did, his action revealed the man on
the Cross as the Christ, while the blood was the
son of man and the spirit was the Father.
So beloved brethren, you can see that JESUS THE
CHRIST WAS GOD, THE FATHER, AMONG MEN. HE WAS
ALSO CALLED THE SON OF MAN BECAUSE OF THE BLOOD
IN HIM. HE WAS ALSO CALLED THE SON OF GOD DUE TO
THE WATER IN HIM, AND FINALLY, GOD WHICH THE SPIRIT
SIGNIFIES. SO THAT WHEN HE SAID THAT HE HAD

SURRENDERED HIS SPIRIT, THE FATHER DEPARTED


AND HE THEN SLUMBERED. AND WHEN THE SPEAR
PASSED THROUGH HIS BODY, THE WATER AND
BLOOD WHICH CAME OUT WASHED AWAY ALL OUR
SINS AND INIQUITIES.

ONTO THIS DAY THAT BLOOD AND WATER ARE


STILL FLOWING AND WASHING US CLEAN AND
FREE. THIS IS WHERE OUR SALVATION COMES
FROM. IT WAS NOT THE MIRACLES OF HEALING THE
SICK, THE LAME, DEAF, BLIND OR RAISING THE
DEAD THAT REVEALED OR QUALIFIED HIM AS THE
CHRIST; OTHERWISE PETER, PAUL AND THE REST
OF THE APOSTLES WHO WERE ABLE TO PERFORM
SAME COULD EQUALLY HAVE CLAIMED HIS
POSITION.

Let me reiterate this question. Why was Christ


crucified in the middle of two robbers? Recall that
one of the robbers was placed on His left while the
other was on His right hand side. What is the
meaning of his arrangement? It is said that only the
king knows the secret of his kingdom. At JOHN
10:8, Our Lord Jesus Christ said: All that ever came
before me were thieves and robbers and the sheep
did not hear them.
The arrangement of the robbers with Christ is a
MYSTERY which no man had ever revealed and it has
pleased the Holy Spirit to reveal it today: FROM THE
FIRST CREATION OF ADAM TO OUR LORD JESUS
CHRIST, ALL HAD ERRED AND COMMITTED

INIQUITIES. AND TO REVEAL THAT THERE WAS


NO RIGHTEOUS MAN ON EARTH, OUR LORD
JESUS CHRIST WAS PLACED IN THE MIDDLE OF
THESE SINNERS. THE FIRST ROBBER ON HIS
LEFT CONNOTES THE PERIOD FROM ADAM TO
CHRIST. THEN FROM CHRIST IN THE CENTER TO
THE OTHER ROBBER ON THE RIGHT
REPRESENTS THE PERIOD OF THE ADVENT OF
CHRIST TO ETERNITY. THIS INVARIABLY MEANS
THAT FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD TO
ETERNITY, THERE IS NO JUST MAN OR PERFECT
MAN. (Romans 3:10-11).
THEREFORE, CHRIST BEING PLACED IN THE
MIDDLE OF THESE TWO PERIODS SIGNIFIES
THAT HE IS THE ONLY SOURCE OF SALVATION
AND MEDIATOR FOR ALL GENERATIONS. Read the
first Lesson below.
FIRST BIBLE LESSON: JOHN 12:24
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of
wheat falls to the ground and dies, it abides
alone: but if it dies, it bringeth forth much fruit.
THE CHILDREN OF GOD DO NOT DIE:
A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING THAT
MEMBERS OF BROTHERHOOD OF THE CROSS AND
STAR ARE DYING. WHO INTIMATED THEM WITH THIS

WRONG NOTION? BROTHERHOOD MEMBERS DO NOT


DIE BUT ARE ON SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT- TO BRING
MORE CHILDREN OF GOD. THIS IS FOR THE
FULFILLMENT OF THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS.
YOU CAN SEE THE RAPID WAY IN WHICH THE
CHILDREN OF GOD ARE MULTIPLYING THESE DAYS.
There are many children of God who were slain for
the services of God. These are the people that are
sent back to the world to continue with their
services. Recall what is written in the scripture:
(Revelation 6:9-11)
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under
the altar the souls of them that were slain for the
word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O
Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge
our blood on them that dwell on earth? And white
robes were given unto every one of them and it was
said unto them, that they should rest yet a little
season, until their fellow servants also and their
brethren that should be killed as they were, should
be fulfilled.
People who kill, maim and torture the children of
God do not know the implications of their actions.
They do not know that they are only helping to get
the will of God fulfilled in their midst. Caiaphas had

once said that it was better for one person to die


than for the entire nation to perish. (JOHN 11:50).
Little did Caiaphas know that Christs departure
would bring more children of God to the world.
EVERYTHING HAPPENED ACCORDING TO THE WILL
OF GOD. THIS IS A PROOF THAT GOD IS THE CAUSE
AND EFFECT OF ALL THINGS.
All those who died from the time of ADAM were
under the imprisonment of death. None of them was
able to ascend unto heaven. This is because they
were under the yoke of evil and hades. As such,
when Christ cried out on the cross, the curtains of
the temple tore, the graves of the saints were
opened and they emerged from the graves. SEE
MATTHEW 27:50-53 FOR CONFIRMATION.
Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice
yielded up the ghost. And behold, the veil of the
temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom
and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the
graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints
which slept arose, And came out of the graves after
his resurrection, and went into the holy city and
appeared unto many.
IT WAS CHRIST'S ASSIGNMENT TO SUBDUE DEATH
AND COLLECT ITS KEY. HAVING OVERCOME THE
POWER OF DEATH AND HADES AND COLLECTED ITS

KEYS, DEATH DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE. NOTHING


IMPRISONS AGAIN ( HEBREWS 2:14-15). This is why
the population of the world increases by leaps and
bounds. NOW OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST IS THE KING
AND LORD OVER ALL PLANES OF MANIFEST,
INCLUDING HEAVEN AND EARTH. HE RULES OVER
ALL THINGS CREATED BY GOD. AND WHEN
PERFECTION WILL BE THE ORDER OF THE DAY,
THERE WILL BE NO MORE DEATH.
God has descended on earth and His children have
filled the entire world. They are in every nook and
corner of the world. Hitherto, when there were no
children of God, there too was no Holy Spirit on
earth. But today, the Holy Spirit has descended to
live with His beloved children. This explains why
Jesus the Christ said: It is expedient for you that I
go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not
come unto you: but if I depart, I will send him unto
you. (JOHN 16:7).
Christs death therefore was to fulfill the above
excerpt. OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST WAS FOND OF
REFERRING TO GOD AS THE FATHER. And it was
during one of these times that Philip demanded to
know Who the Father really was; he said:
Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou
not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath

seen the Father, and how sayest thou, show us the


Father. (JOHN 14:9).
LET IT BE KNOWN THAT THE FATHER WHICH
CHRIST HAS BEEN REFERRING TO IS THE HOLY
SPIRIT. THIS SPIRIT IS THE DOER OF ALL
THINGS FROM CREATION. THAT SPIRIT IS LIFE
AND THAT WAS WHY IMMEDIATELY CHRIST
SURRENDERED THE SPIRIT, THE MORTAL BODY
SLUMPED. If you seek the Father carefully, you will
not see Him. That was why the Jews regarded Him
(Our Lord Jesus Christ) as an insane person when He
said He was in the Father and the Father in Him.
FROM THE CREATION OF MAN, HAS ANY HUMAN
BEING PERFORMED THE TYPE OF JOB DONE BY
OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST? HE WAS NOT THE ONE
DOING THE WORKS PER SE BUT THE FATHER, EVEN
THE HOLY SPIRIT. HE EVEN MADE IT CLEAR THAT
HIS WORDS AND WORKS ARE DIRECTLY FROM THE
FATHER AS HE SAID:
Believest thou not that I am in the Father and the
Father in me? The words that I speak unto you, I
speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in
me, he doeth the works. (JOHN 14:10).
Even on the Cross, Christ called on the Father and
surrendered His spirit onto Him before He could die.
WHAT WAS CRUCIFIED ON THE CROSS WAS

THEREFORE NOT CHRIST BUT THE SINS AND


INIQUITIES OF THE WORLD. The time He said He
had surrendered His Spirit to the Father was when
the Spirit departed from Him.
JESUS CHRIST WAS GOD THE FATHER:
Our Lord Jesus Christ throughout His ministration
had been attributing all the works He did to the
Father. Before then, people had been attributing the
successes and failures of the world to ghosts,
mermaid, beelzebub, charms, among others. Nobody
knew that God was responsible for everything. But
when the Jews noticed the miracles wrought by
Christ, they started calling Him king of the
Beelzebub. They even laughed Him to scorn, calling
Him the son of Mary and Joseph. THEY NEVER
BELIEVED THAT HE WAS THE SON OF MAN, SON OF
GOD AND GOD HIMSELF.
THERE ARE NO THREE GODS BUT ONE GOD, THE
TRIUNE GOD. THE SPIRIT, THE WATER, AND THE
BLOOD FORM THIS TRIUNE GOD. NO ONE KNOWS
WHERE THE WATER AND BLOOD COMES FROM OR
WHERE THEY GET DRIED TO. YOU SEE THAT GOD
CAN COME BY ANY NAME AND FORM. WHEN HE
CAME AS THE SON OF MAN, SON OF GOD AND GOD
HIMSELF, THEY TREATED HIM DISDAINFULLY, AND

FINALLY KILLED HIM. HOWEVER OUR LORD JESUS


CHRIST WAS GOD AS WELL AS THE SON OF GOD.
OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST WAS ALSO THE SPIRIT,
WHILE THE FLESH WAS THE HOUSE AND SO, WHEN
THE SPIRIT LEFT THE HOUSE, IT COLLAPSED
(SLUMPED). THIS HOUSE (FLESH) WAS PLACED

IN THE TOMB BUT WHEN THE SPIRIT


COMPLETED ITS SPIRITUAL ASSIGNMENT,
AFTER THREE DAYS AND NIGHTS, IT WENT
BACK TO THE HOUSE. AS SUCH CHRIST,
RESURRECTED WITH HIS FULL BODY. The
spirit is the owner of the house (physical
body) and so, what is referred to as
resurrection is just the revitalization of the
house by the spirit. THIS IS THE MYSTERY
OF THE MOST HIGH GOD.
IT IS THE SPIRIT WHICH IS GOD AND IT DOES
ALL THE WORK THOUGH YOU MAY NOT SEE
HIM. The churches, religious bodies, occult
and mystical organizations are trying their
best yet, they have not got this Spirit which is
God. Even the physical and esoteric scientist
are trying but they have not got it. SINCE THEY
CANNOT POSSESS THIS SPIRIT, IT MEANS THEY
HAVE NOT GOT GOD AND THEREFORE, THEY

CANNOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD. That was


why Christ said: Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
except a man be born of water and of the spirit he
cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (JOHN 3:5).
As God, Christ knew that if He does not leave the
house in time the people would break his legs. So He
gave up the ghost accordingly. He did not want to
behave like Jacob who wrestled with an angel and
got this bone fractured.
And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man
with him until the breaking of the day. And when He
saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched
the hollow of his and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was
out of joint. (GENESIS 32:24-25).
Now, if He had not given up the ghost, He would have
remained alive until the soldiers came, in which
case, they would have broken His legs. This however
would have been contrary to the words of God which
states that: He keepeth all his bones: not one of
them is broken. (PSALM 34:20). In that case He
would not have been the Christ.
HOW THEN CAN WE RECOGNIZE GOD?
The spirit is life. Once the spirit leaves the body, one
is bound to die. Though the water and blood could be
shed from the body, if the spirit is still intact, then
one can still live until the spirit finally departs. Let it

be known that as long as the spirit indwells the body,


the loss of water and blood from the body cannot
cause death. They will later return. THIS SO
BECAUSE THE SPIRIT IS THE FATHER WHILE THE
WATER AND BLOOD REPRESENTS THE SON AND
THE HOLY SPIRIT, RESPECTIVELY. THESE
CONSTITUTE THE TRIUNE GOD.
The whites are very strong minded fellows and they
can research daring situations about man and
nature. This is why they use the nature of man in
most of their inventions. The car they have invented
works with water, engine oil and fuel. Whenever any
of these three is lacking, the car stops moving or
develops serious problems.
Even the way people are treated in the hospital
confirms the nature. When you are sick the doctor
may recommend that water or blood be transfused
into your body, if either of them is lacking. The
doctors know of water and blood but they do not
know about the spirit which is the Father. For this
reason, Christ said that if one is not born of water
and spirit, he cannot have eternal life. See the
second lesson below:
SECOND BIBLE LESSON: LUKE 23:46

And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he


said, Father into thy hands I commend my spirit:
and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
THE SPIRIT IDENTIFIES ONE AS GOD:
WHO IS GOD AND WHO IS THE SON? GOD IS SPIRIT
AND THE SON IS THAT SPIRIT AS WELL. IN THEIR
IGNORANCE, THE JEWS THREW STONES AT OUR
LORD JESUS CHRIST WHEN HE SAID, I AND MY
FATHER ARE ONE. THIS EXPLAINS THAT THOUGH
JESUS CAME AS THE CHRIST, HE WAS ALSO THE
FATHER, FOR THE SPIRIT IS ONE. IF YOU DO NOT
HAVE THIS SPIRIT IT MEANS YOU HAVE NO GOD.
OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST ACCOMPLISHED HIS
ASSIGNMENT BECAUSE HE HAD THIS SPIRIT IN HIM.
WITHOUT THIS SPIRIT HE WOULD NOT HAVE DONE
HIS WORK SUCCESSFULLY.
UNFORTUNATELY, THIS SPIRIT IS NOT MEANT FOR
ALL THE PEOPLE TO POSSESS. IT IS ONLY FOR THE
CHILDREN OF GOD. THIS IS WHY THEY ACCOMPLISH
THEIR ASSIGNMENT SUCCESSFULLY. THE WORLDLY
PEOPLE CANNOT ACCOMPLISH THE WORK OF GOD.
The spirit possessed by the worldly people is the
Adamic spirit. This is the spirit of disobedience.
The possession of this spirit is the cause of the
whole problem facing humanity today.

The worldly people are insisting that the power in


Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is not from God.
BUT THEY HAVE FAILED TO REALIZE THAT GOD IS
THE ONLY POWER THAT RULES ALL BEINGS. THEY
DO NOT KNOW THAT WHEN GOD COMES TO DWELL
WITH MAN, HE BECOMES A MAN BUT HE IS HIDDEN
FROM THE ORDINARY EYES. THE ONLY WAY OF
IDENTIFYING GOD IS BY THE SPIRIT. Even when
Andrew told his brother Simon Peter that they have
found the Messiah, even the Christ, it was the spirit
that revealed him.
One of the two which heard John speak and
followed him was Andrew, Simon Peters brother. He
first findeth his own brother Simon and saith unto
him, we have found the Messiah, which is being
interpreted, the Christ. (JOHN 1:40-41).
It is written that: AND THERE ARE THREE THAT
BEAR WITNESS IN THE EARTH, THE SPIRIT, THE
WATER AND THE BLOOD: AND THESE THREE AGREE
IN ONE. (1 JOHN 5:8).
In heaven there are three that also unite to become
one: FOR THERE ARE THREE THAT BEAR RECORD
IN HEAVEN, THE FATHER, THE WORD AND THE HOLY
GHOST: AND THESE THREE ARE ONE. AND THERE
ARE THREE THAT BEAR WITNESS ON EARTH, THE

SPIRIT, THE WATER AND THE BLOOD: AND THESE


THREE AGREE IN ONE. (1 JOHN 5:7-8).
WHOEVER HAS THESE QUALITIES IS TRULY GOD. DO
NOT BOTHER TO VISIT MECCA, JERUSALEM,
AMERICA OR ANY OTHER PLANE OR CONTINENT IN
SEARCH OF GOD; FOR IF THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS NOT
IN YOU, YOU CANNOT DO ANYTHING. HE IS THE
ONLY ONE WHO CAN USE YOU TO FULFILL ANY
ASSIGNMENT.
Everything that happened to Our Lord Jesus Christ
was a fulfillment of all the prophesies about Him.
Even as Simon prophesied that a sword shall pierce
through Him, it happened accordingly.
It was said that water and blood shall gush out of his
side. It also came to pass. The fulfillment of these
prophesies proved Him as Christ. It should be noted
that if the water and blood did not pass out of His
side, our iniquities could not have been washed
away. THE DEATH OF CHRIST HAS THEREFORE
LEFT A FOUNTAIN OF WATER WHEREBY WE ALL
BATHE FOR THE REMISSION OF OUR SINS. IT
MAY BE INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT IT WAS
ALSO FOR THIS REASON THAT JOHN THE
BAPTIST WAS ASKED TO BAPTIZE WITH WATER.
THE IMPORTANCE OF WATER STRESSED:

Henceforth, do not have the erroneous belief that


baptism shall cease to be. BAPTISM BY
IMMERSION SHALL REMAIN FOREVER. It is a source
of salvation for humanity. If your sins and iniquities
are not washed away, then you will die with your sins
intact. Through faith and baptism, your sins are
forgiven and having been washed with the blood of
Christ, the Holy Spirit which is life comes into you.
Water and blood and spirit are one. When you are
dipped in water by way of baptism, it means you
are buried with Christ and when you emerge, you
are emerging with life.
NO MATTER WHAT YOU MAY DO, IF YOU ARE NOT
BORN OF WATER, BLOOD AND SPIRIT, YOU HAVE NO
SALVATION. OR SIMPLY PUT, THERE IS NO OTHER
WAY ONE CAN BE SAVED EXCEPT HE IS BORN OF
WATER, BLOOD AND SPIRIT. A LOT OF PEOPLE DO
NOT TAKE THIS BAPTISM SERIOUSLY. THEY DO NOT
EVEN REGARD THE CONFESSION OF SINS AS
ANYTHING IMPORTANT IN LIFE. THE CHURCHES DO
NOT STRESS THIS EXERCISE AS A VERY
IMPORTANT ASPECT OF WORSHIP. HOWEVER, OUR
LORD JESUS CHRIST EMPHASIZED ON ITS
IMPORTANCE BY SAYING THAT UNLESS ONE IS
BORN OF WATER AND OF SPIRIT, SUCH CANNOT
ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

WHEREVER YOU MAY GO, IF THE WORD OF GOD


IS NOT DISCUSSED AND BAPTISM IS NOT TAKEN
SERIOUSLY, AS WELL AS CONFESSION OF SINS,
THEN DEPART FROM SUCH A PLACED FOR THE
HOLY SPIRIT DOES NOT DWELL THEREIN.
EVEN WHEN YOU ENTER A BETHEL, IF YOU FIND NO
HOLY OIL, AND WATER THERE, THEN KNOW THAT
GOD IS NOT IN SUCH A BETHEL. WHEREVER YOU GO
AND YOU DO NOT FIND THE WORD OF GOD, WATER
AND HOLY OIL, THEN DEPART FROM THAT PLACE
FOR THE PEOPLE THERE DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY
ARE DOING. THESE THREE THINGS BEAR WITNESS
TO THE FACT THAT GOD IS PRESENT IN SUCH A
PLACE.
These three things are the main weapon used in
Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. THE HOLY OIL
SIGNIFIES THE BLOOD OF GOD (CHRIST). THIS IS
WHAT IS USED IN FORGIVING ALL YOUR SINS
AND INIQUITIES. THE WATER IS USED IN
WASHING AND CLEANING ALL FILTHINESS AND
ONE BECOMES SANCTIFIED.
BAPTISM IN BROTHERHOOD OF THE CROSS AND
STAR IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT
THE CHURCHES AND CULTS DO ALL OVER THE
WORLD. FOR THIS REASON ONE MUST BE
BAPTISED AGAIN INTO BROTHERHOOD OF THE

CROSS AND STAR THOUGH ONE MAY HAVE BEEN


BAPTISED SEVERAL TIMES ELSEWHERE. HERE
YOU MUST CONFESS AND REPENT OF ALL YOUR
SINS BEFORE BAPTISM. ONCE YOU CONFESS,
REPENT AND YOU ARE BAPTISED YOU HAVE
BECOME A DIFFERENT PERSON. YOUR
SALVATION HERE STARTS THE VERY DAY YOU
ARE BAPTISED. THIS IS SO BECAUSE YOU ARE
FIRST GIVEN THE WORDS OF GOD BEFORE YOUR
CONFESSION. WITHOUT PASSING THROUGH THIS
WAY, YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME. THAT IS
WHY THE CHURCHES ARE NOW EMPTY. THEY DO
NOT PASS THROUGH THE RIGHT WAY TO GOD
AND SO THEY SCATTER BECAUSE OF NOT
HAVING RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT, THEY HAVE
NO LIFE
There are very many persons in the world who have
their shares in this kingdom but they cannot receive
them yet because they are not born of water, blood,
and Holy Spirit. There are many others who claim to
be baptized but have neither their sins remitted nor
the Holy Spirit in them. Their baptism is just like
having an ordinary bath in the stream or river. It can
only become meaningful only when they are anointed
with the Holy Oil which signifies the blood of Christ.
Once you are anointed after baptism, the Holy Spirit
takes possession of your body and you are admitted
into the kingdom of God.

SOMETIMES YOU FAST AND PRAY YET THE HOLY


SPIRIT DOES NOT MANIFEST. THIS IS BECAUSE YOU
DID NOT START WITH CONFESSION OF SINS AND
THE SPRINKLING OF WATER AND HOLY OIL. Read
the Golden Text below:
GOLDEN TEXT: JOHN 19:34
But one of the soldiers with a spear, pierced his
side and forthwith came there out blood and
water.
THE HOLY OIL AND WATER ARE THE SIGNS OF THE
TRIUNE GOD:
Brethren, you have now realized that the water and
blood that came out of Him washed away our sins.
That is why here in Brotherhood of the Cross and
Star, we deal with Holy Oil, water and the word of
God. If someone goes to his house and gives you any
other thing, do not receive. Do not receive drugs,
roots, leaves, or any form of medication for God is
not in such things.
All problems are solved and sicknesses healed by
these three things- WATER, OIL AND THE WORDS OF
GOD. If a patient has sinned let him confess all his
sins. Then give him THE WORD OF GOD, HOLY
WATER AND OIL. In this way, he will be healed or his

problems will be solved. Do not accept any diabolical


substances from any person.
There is a common mistake made by everyone, that
is regarding the Holy Oil as medication. That is why
some people add it to their tea, soup, and use it as
purgative. They use it for all types of things, they
even use it as tablets. THIS SHOULD NOT BE THE
CASE. A member of Brotherhood of the Cross and
Star can even empty three containers of holy oil at
the same time.
Now let it be known that once you have been
baptized into Brotherhood of the Cross and Star,
YOU ARE NOT TO DRINK OR USE THE HOLY OIL
ANY HOW. YOU ONLY USE IT WHEN A SINNER
REPENTS AND DECIDES TO CONFESS HIS SINS.
AFTER CONFESSION, YOU SPRINKLE HOLY
WATER AND USE THE SAME TO ANOINT SUCH A
PERSON. YOU CAN PUT THREE DROPS OF HOLY
OIL IN A CONTAINER OF WATER AND DRINK IT
OR ANOINT PEOPLE WITH IT.
THIS HOLY OIL AND WATER USED IN
BROTHERHOOD OF THE CROSS AND STAR ARE
NO DRUGS OR CHARMS. THESE ARE THE SIGNS
OF THE PRESENCE OF THE TRIUNE GOD IN OUR
MIDST. I HAVE NEVER ASKED YOU TO DRINK THE
HOLY OIL BUT TO USE IT AS THE SIGN OF

CHRIST'S BLOOD. ONCE YOU MAKE A SIGN OF


THE CROSS WITH THE HOLY OIL ON ANY
PERSON WHO HAS CONFESSED HIS SINS, HIS
SICKNESSES ARE HEALED. THERE IS NO TYPE
OF SICKNESS THAT CANNOT BE HEALED IN THIS
WAY. IT IS NOT AN EASY THING TO POSSESS THE
HOLY SPIRIT, UNLESS THROUGH THE
FORGIVENESS OF OUR SINS WITH THE RIGHT
USAGE OF THE HOLY OIL WHICH IS THE BLOOD
OF CHRIST.
So beloved, a stroke of the cane is enough for the
wise. May the Father bless His Holy Words, Amen.
THANK YOU HOLY FATHER.

WHO BELIEVES IN RESURRECTION?


Our Lord Jesus Christ has advised that when you
make a feast, you should invite the poor, the maimed,
the lame and the blind, in order that you would be
blessed, for they cannot compensate you. You would
be compensated at the resurrection of the just.
About 99 percent of the population of the world does
not believe in the resurrection. If you were to hope
on resurrection then you would not have pitied
yourself about death because death does not exist.

But do what is good knowing that whatever you do,


you are sowing for yourself.
THE DISCIPLES STRUGGLED AMONG THEMSELVES
WHO WOULD BE THE GREATEST AMONGST THEM.
BUT SINCE OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TOOK HIS
PHYSICAL EXISTENCE FROM THIS EARTH PLAIN,
WHICH OF THEM STEPPED INTO HIS SHOES? NO
PERSON TOOK OVER FROM HIM. EACH PERSON IS
OCCUPYING HIS OWN POSITION. THERE IS THE
DIVISION OF LABOUR AND NO PERSON
ENCROACHES ON THE POSITION OF OTHERS. THE
GOLDEN TEXT SHOULD NOW BE READ.
Golden Text: John 14:18
I will not leave you comfortless; I am coming unto
you.
WHAT IS READ TO YOU IS QUITE PLAIN. BUT OUR
LORD JESUS CHRIST WAS SPEAKING IN THE
PRESENT CONTINUOUS TENSE. I AM COMING BACK
TO YOU. HE DID NOT SAY THAT HE WILL COME
BACK TO YOU. IT IS THEREFORE, ERRONEOUS FOR
YOU TO PRAY THAT OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
SHOULD COME BACK AGAIN. TO WHERE DID HE GO?
HE SAYS, I AM COMING BACK. HE HAS NOT
INDICATED HIS RETURN IN THE FUTURE.

A Challenge To The World That Christ Has Not Gone


Anywhere Since His Resurrection:
READ THE THREE TEXTS TO THE IGNORANT AND
THE FOOLS. SHOW THEM TO ALL THE INHABITANTS
OF THE WORLD BECAUSE I DECLARE THIS FROM
HIGH HEAVENS. WHEN THEY HOLD THE BELIEF
THAT HE WILL COME BACK AGAIN, I CHALLENGE
THEM.
He says it was expedient that He went away,
because if He did not go away, the Comforter would
not come to you; but if He went away, He would send
the Comforter unto you. He says again: except a
grain of corn falls on the ground and dies, it remains
alone. But if it dies it brings forth much fruit. He says
finally in the golden text: I will not leave you
comfortless, I am coming unto you. This means that
our Lord Jesus Christ has not left us to even one
inch. He has been with mankind since His
resurrection and the Father is doing His work.
However, a great many people still feel that He is in
the sky, while others say until He comes back again.
And I ask you where has He ever been to?
Apart From Our Lord Jesus Christ, No Person Grants
Your Request

HAS HE NOT ADVISED THAT WHATEVER WE ASK


THE FATHER THROUGH HIS NAME, HE WILL SURELY
DO IT FOR US. HAS HE EVER ADVISED YOU TO ASK
THROUGH ANY OTHER NAME OR THROUGH ANY
OTHER THING? BUT HE SAYS, IF YOU SHALL ASK
ANYTHING IN MY NAME, I WILL DO IT. (JOHN
14:13). CAN SUCH A STATEMENT BE MADE BY A
DEAD PERSON OR SOMEBODY WHO TRAVELS TO A
DISTANT PLACE? Ask your carnal father for anything
whether he will do it for you. Ask the government for
anything you like, whether it will be done for you. But
ask Him, He is a living person, and He will grant your
request.
You do not read your Bible, and if even you read, you
do not understand it. Our Lord Jesus Christ does not
die forever. Do you also know that His ascension
means descent? The day He ascended into heaven
was the day He came down to the earth. Similarly,
when He descended to the earth in His carnal
manifestation, He ascended into heaven.
The story of our Lord Jesus Christ is not a simple
one. The time of his birth was the time of his death
and the time of His death was the time He
regenerated, full of power, endowed with wisdom
and powers, having power to rule the world.

By The Obedience Of One Shall Many Be Made


Righteous. (Rom 5:19)
Can you notice the folly of man? Caiaphas had told
the people that they knew nothing at all or would
they consider that it was expedient for us, that one
man should die for the people than the whole world
to perish. (John 11:49-54).
Our Lord Jesus Christ was of the opinion that it was
expedient that He should die because that meant
coming up again. Brethren, examine critically which
of the actions taken against our Lord Jesus Christ
was evil. That of Caiaphas or that of those who
arrested Him and His death. Because if these things
did not take place, Our Lord Jesus Christ could not
have come into the world.
Regeneration: To Save It Means Liberty
When you are in the flesh you are in a confinement,
like somebodys movement being restricted by the
four walls of a prison cell. There are certain places
you cannot go or reach. But when you resurrect and
become regenerated, you travel to any place at all
without a passport and visa.
You can enter the flesh as well as the Spirit; enter
water and the fire also. It is quite easy to enter

everywhere. Can you not realize that He is the doer


of the work at this end of time in the world? When I
tell you that I am not the doer but He, you always
laugh.
DO NOT GAZE AT THE SUN NOR ON THE MOON; DO
NOT GO TO INDIA OR BRITAIN. IF SOMEBODY TELLS
YOU THAT HE IS IN THE MOON, DO NOT GO
BECAUSE HE HAS COME BACK, SINCE THEN; AND
HE HAS BEEN HERE DOING HIS WORK EVERY TIME,
EVERYWHERE. HE IS NEVER SICK, DOES NOT
EXPERIENCE PAINS, HAS NO PROBLEMS.
Christ Is Omnipresent
Even the three days He was supposed to have been
in the grave, He did not rest. He spent the three days
destroying death and pains of death, collecting the
keys of hades and of death and taking complete
dominion over hades as the King of heaven. He also
released all the members bound.
Do you say again that our Lord Jesus Christ is in the
sky, because He is always in the sky. He is in the
sun, the moon, in the forest, inside water. He is in
your heart; He is in your house walking majestically
and boldly. CALL EVERY TIME WITHOUT GETTING
TIRED. HE IS HUMAN, HE IS THE SPIRIT, HE IS FIRE
AND AIR AND WATER, HE IS ALL AND IN ALL.

Flesh And Blood Cannot Serve God. (1 Cor 15:50/


Matt 16:17)
Do not be proud that you are doing the work. It is our
Lord Jesus Christ who does the work. Do not be
conceited that somebody is capable of doing
everything. No flesh and blood can do the work apart
from our Lord Jesus Christ. That is why you are
advised to mortify the flesh and live by the spirit. If
you mortify the flesh, you will be one Spirit with Him.
THOUGH WE HAVE KNOWN OUR LORD JESUS
CHRIST AFTER THE FLESH, YET NOW AND
HENCEFORTH WE KNOW HIM NO MORE LIKE THAT.
(2 COR 5:16)
You only need to refrain from drinking, fornication,
adultery, falsehood, theft and the rest of the vices
and surrender yourself to Him, see Him, serve Him
and dwell with Him and He will gain dominion over
all and He will be seen lavishly everywhere.
Brotherhood Is The Kingdom Of God!
Do you not remember that people in the world
address you as witches and wizards? This is based
on the little faith you have, because you are being
seen physically everywhere. Two or three persons
confess they see you at the same time, in their
houses, at the hospital, you converse with them,
whether they close their eyes or not and so they

conclude that yours is not a church but one of the


most powerful witchcraft cults. They see you both
physically and spiritually; you are being seen in the
moon and in the stars, in water and everywhere.
That is why no matter what explanations you put
forward, they do not seem convinced that yours is
not a secret society but insist that you belong to a
very powerful cult.
You Work Harder After Regeneration!
Many of you argue that you have gone overseas. I tell
you, you have been travelling down there; you are
entering inside water and loosening those that are
bound in chains, you are climbing to great heights
and loosening the ropes. You are entering
everywhere and releasing all those who are chained;
and liberating all those in bondage. You go to the
hospitals and liberate those affected by the
machinations of the evil ones. That is why they
conclude that your witchcraft is the most powerful in
the world.
Those who are Christs have crucified their flesh
with the affections and lusts, and are now living in
the spirit. (Gal 5:24). This is a spiritual warfare. You
need no candle or incense or perfume or any other
thing. But wherever you go to, people are always
petrified with such fear and astonishment that they
openly say that the wizards and witches have arrived

again. The spirits will reveal to the people what you


are; and the elemental spirits of the universe will
bow down to you.
Mortify The Flesh With Its Lusts And Affections!
(Rom 8:13).
Have you not been confronted with the question, to
what society do you belong? As small as you are, if
you are seen in the spirit, people would be
bamboozled. One person alone to enter Calabar
would ward off all evils and render all charms
useless. That is why it sounds unbelievable to them
that you should be a man of God. The world does not
believe but insist that you are a witch or a wizard.
For the flesh lusts against the spirit and the spirit
against the flesh, and these are contradictory to the
other, so that you cannot do the things that you
should. (Rom 8:5-8). If, therefore, you mortify the
flesh, you will live in the spirit.
The doctrines delivered to you, have never existed
anywhere else in the world. This marks the end of
the period when ever-lasting gospels are given to
you.
Brethren, I do not intend to be tedious unto you, one
stroke of the cane is sufficient for the wise. Those
who have ears, let them hear. May God bless His
Words. Amen.

Universe, on:-THE MYSTERY OF DEATH

REJOICE IN OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST


YOU ARE GODS, NO MATTER YOUR CONDITION
Any spirit which tells you that somebody will bolt
from the blues and crash-land on the ground like
an eaglet is not of God but carnal and demonic.
Why the Jews crucified our Lord Jesus Christ
was that He being man claimed He was the Son
of God. And they killed Him because they had not
the spirit of God in them. Up till today, the Jews
still assert that God has no child. This assertion
implies that there is no God, for if God has no
child, who is your father? All such disputes and
confusions which trouble the world stem from
the flesh. There are some people here whose
study of the evolutionary process of man makes
them believe that there is no God and that life
started from the sea bed creatures, to reptiles,
to the present Homo sapiens. Go to the
universities; listen to scientists and many others
you will realize that no one believes in God. That
is why you behave unseemingly. It is written in
your law that you are gods, the children of the
Most High God but you shall die like men. If you
are a god, then dying like men will not stop you
from being a god. If you are a Son of God and you

die, this does not change the fact that you are a
child of God. If you are a god and you get sick, it
does not mean that you are no longer a god.
Because you are sick, if you are a god and are
disgraced or are hungry, or in lack, it does not
mean that those things would not have come to
you were you not to be a god. Have you not seen
what happens in the world with God Almighty?
In the beginning God said let us make man in our
own image, after our likeness. What is the
meaning of making man in our own image? This
means that man should look like God. When you
argue that God is not man, what then is God? Is
He a tree? Were God not man, how would He have
made man in this form which according to Him is
His own image? Now you argue that man is not
God. If man is not God, what is man?
What is God? Is He not man? God put everything
under mans care that he should superintend over
fishes, animals, birds and every other thing. He
also ordered man to name all creatures. Now, the
flesh has deceived you into believing that man is
not God. If man is not God, what is man? Let us
assume that man is not God, but the Son of God.
But you argue that man is not a child of God.
What then is man, when you say that man is
neither God nor a Son of God, but believing in our
Lord Jesus Christ what was he?

The birth of our Lord Jesus Christ was to


confound all wisdom. Mary was conceived for
nine months, after which Jesus was delivered
and people from east and west paid obeisance to
Him. Argue that such birth did not take place. If
you will argue that our Lord Jesus Christ is the
Child of God, whose child are you? This issue
leads to yet another. Mary gave birth to Jesus
the Christ as her first child, He was a Son of God,
and she also gave birth to others, the sons of
men. We have our support from the Bible that
those who are born of the flesh are carnal and
those born of the spirit are spiritual. Our Lord
Jesus Christ was born of the spirit and others
were carnal. Can you not realize that man is of
two categories? Amongst us, there are the sons
of God and the sons of men. Now that you argue
that God has just one son, does it mean that He
ended His action by begetting only our Lord
Jesus Christ? Has God not begotten any other
person despite the teeming population of the
inhabitants of the world? Can you say that our
Lord Jesus Christ was the first and last child of
God?
Secondly, do you believe that since after the
ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, He is still in
the atmosphere? Did you not read that after
three days He resurrected and showed Himself to

the people? And when the disciples were


terrified He told them:
Behold My hands and My feet, that it is Myself:
handle Me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and
bones, as ye see Me have. While they yet
believed not for joy, and wondered, He said unto
them, have ye here any meat, and they gave Him
a piece of boiled fish, and of honey comb. And He
took it and did eat before them. (John 24:36 -45).

BROTHERHOOD IS NOT OF THE FLESH (BCS)


All the confusion and doubt that abound in the
world comes from the flesh. That is the spirit of
Lucifer who did promise to trouble the world. We
in Brotherhood rejoice in our Lord Jesus Christ,
and have confidence in the spirit. That is why,
those who are ignorant of what Brotherhood is,
call it a new church. But Brotherhood of the
Cross and Star is the Kingdom of God. We do not
worship carnality. We do not rejoice in any other
thing apart from our Lord Jesus Christ. We do not
live according to the dictates of the flesh but by
the directives of the spirit.
ALSO WE DO NOT LOOK OR SEE THINGS
CARNALLY, NEITHER DO WE HEAR WITH THE
CARNAL EARS, WE DO ALL THINGS IN THE
SPIRIT. WE KNOW NO MAN THROUGH THE FLESH
BUT THROUGH THE SPIRIT. WE DO NOT REJOICE
IN MONEY, OR SIZE, OR POSITION AND WHETHER
YOU ARE A MINISTER, LAWYER, DOCTOR OR A
CHIEF, WE REJOICE IN THE SPIRIT. OUR
BOLDNESS AND HAPPINESS IS IN OUR LORD
JESUS CHRIST BECAUSE HE CAME, DIED,
RESURRECTED AND HE IS NOW LIVING TO BE
GLORIFIED.
HIS REIGN HAS NO BEGINNING AND NO END. HE
IS OUR CAPTAIN. HE REIGNS IN HEAVEN AND ON

EARTH, IN THE WATER AND IN OUR BODY. IN ALL


PLACES, HE REIGNS THOUGH THE WORLD
KNOWS HIM NOT, WE HAVE SEEN AND KNOWN
HIM. WE DO NOT BOAST, IN THE MONEY HE
GIVES US. WE DO NOT BOAST, IN THE LIFE HE
GIVES US. WE DO NOT BOAST IN THE WISDOM,
HE GIVES US.
WE REJOICE IN HIM BECAUSE HE WILL NOT FAIL
US FOREVER. AS HE HAD PROMISED THAT
"WHEN I GO AND PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU, I
WILL COME BACK AND TAKE YOU TO MYSELF,"
HIS PROMISE IS FULFILLED IN US TODAY. HE
SAID, "I WILL NOT LEAVE YOU COMFORTLESS, I
WILL COME UNTO YOU". HE HAS COME UNTO US.
NONE OF US HERE BOASTS OF WHAT WE HAVE.
WE DO NOT EVEN REJOICE IN OUR CARNAL
FATHER OR ANY OTHER THING. OUR HAPPINESS
IS IN CHRIST JESUS, BECAUSE HE IS THE
CONQUEROR AND OUR ARMOR BEARER. MANY
PEOPLE PROFESS THAT THEY ARE CHRISTS, OR
JESUS, OR SPIRIT, BUT THEY DO NOT PREACH
ABOUT HIM, NEITHER DO THEY BOAST IN HIM. IF
YOU BOAST IN OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHY
DO YOU NOT DO SO IN THE SPIRIT? IF YOU ARE
WALKING IN THE SPIRIT, WHY DO YOU NOT
BOAST IN OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST? BRETHREN,
I DO NOT WANT TO BELABOR YOU, LET OUR
FIRST LESSON BE READ:

FIRST LESSON: PHILIPPIANS 3: 3


For we are the circumcision, which worship God
in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and
have no confidence in the flesh.
REJOICE IN OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
Brethren, have you heard the Scripture? Why you
have problems is that you do not rejoice in our
Lord Jesus Christ and many of you have no
confidence in the spirit. EARTHLY THINGS ARE
LIKE THE DEW, WHICH IS TRANSITORY, BUT OUR
LORD JESUS CHRIST ABIDES FOREVER. DO NOT
PUT YOUR HOPE IN MAN, OR MONEY, OR ANY OF
THE EARTHLY THINGS. BUT, LET YOUR HOPE,
FAITH, HAPPINESS AND CONFIDENCE BE IN OUR
LORD JESUS CHRIST FOR HE WILL NOT FAIL
YOU.
PEOPLE ARE INVESTIGATING THE
CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING THE BIRTH OF
THE LEADER AND THE SORT OF FOOD HE EATS.
THEY ARE RESEARCHING INTO HIS KIND OF
APPAREL, ALL IN A BID TO DISCOVER THE
SOURCE OF HIS POWER. THESE PERSONS ARE
TO BE GREATLY PITIED.
I HIDE NOTHING FROM YOU AND I HAVE BEEN
TELLING YOU THAT I AM POWERLESS AND NONE
EXISTING. BUT OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST HAD

SAID THAT ALL POWER IN HEAVEN AND ON


EARTH HAD BEEN HANDED OVER TO ME. GO YE
THEREFORE, AND TEACH ALL NATIONS,
BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER,
AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY GHOST.
TEACHING THEM TO OBSERVE ALL THINGS
WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU. IT IS
ON THIS PROMISE THAT I OPERATE.
HE SAID, WHOEVER BELIEVES IN ME, BELIEVES
NOT IN ME BUT IN HIM WHO SENT ME. AT TIMES
HE WOULD SAY I, AND THE FATHER ARE ONE. DO
YOU NOT REALIZE THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN
THE SON BELIEVES IN THE FATHER, WHOEVER
REJECTS THE SON HAS NOT THE FATHER.
AS MANY AS BELIEVE IN OUR LORD JESUS
CHRIST AS THE SON OF GOD, THE SAME HAVE
RIGHT TO BE CALLED THE CHILDREN OF GOD.
ALL THOSE WHO HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE
SPIRIT TESTIFY THAT OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
IS HERE. HE IS DOING THE WORK; HE IS THE
MASTER, THE LORD OF LORDS AND THE KING OF
KINGS. HE IS IN HEAVEN, ON EARTH AND IN US.
HE DIED ONCE FOR THE SAKE OF OUR SINS.
FROM THENCE LIVES HE A LIFE OF
RIGHTEOUSNESS
FOREVER.
IT IS NOT EXPECTED THAT ANY OTHER PERSON
SHOULD DIE. IT IS NOT GIVEN THAT THOSE WHO

BELIEVE IN HIM SHOULD DIE. THOSE WHO


BELIEVE IN HIM MUST HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. AND
IT IS NOT EXPECTED THAT ANY ONE SHOULD
DECLARE HIMSELF TO BE JESUS OR CHRIST, OR
JEHOVAH OR GOD. DO WE NEED MANY JESUSES?
IS THE ONE WE HAVE NOT SUFFICIENT? IT IS
NOT ALSO EXPECTED THAT ANYONE SHOULD
GAZE AT THE SKY. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM
THE SKY? THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, TRULY I SAY
UNTO YOU, HE WHO BELIEVES IN ME, THE
WORKS THAT I DO SHALL HE DO, GREATER
WORKS THAN THIS SHALL HE DO. IF YOU
BELIEVE IN HIM AND DO GREATER WORKS, WHAT
ELSE DO YOU EXPECT OF HIM IN THE SKY?
People initiate into many secret societies as well
as various forms of diabologies in order to be
saved. But instead of getting salvation, disaster
still befalls them. And our Lord Jesus Christ said,
Whoever believes and is baptized shall be saved,
but whoever is not baptized shall be damned. And
these signs shall follow them that believe. In My
name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak
with new tongues.
They shall take up serpents, and if they drink any
deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay
hands on the sick, and they shall recover. It is
as simple as that by coming out of the water of
baptism, these signs follow you. Is there any of

you who is not followed by these signs? It is this


issue that baffles all the inhabitants of the world
and that is why they keep asking the source of
power in Brotherhood? But of a truth, I tell you
the moment you believe and are baptized, these
signs shall follow you. You are not charged any
money; neither are you given any other
conditions.
What do you think God is? God is the Word, and
what is the Word? The Word is Christ. What is
Christ? Christ is Spirit. What is Spirit? Spirit is
Truth, Love, Faith, Peace, Holiness, Humility,
Temperance, Meekness, Power and Joy. He is all
and in all. Tell Me what your problem is? Have
you not seen that Spirit? Has it not come?
It is today that you are going to know the fruits
of the Spirit. So that those who claim to possess
the spirit will know their stand. Church
denominations will claim they do not worship the
spirit since they are orthodox churches, believing
in the power of the Holy Spirit. It is today that
you will know which is a spiritual church.

EXCERPT FROM THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL:
THE QUALITIES OF A CHILD OF GOD

THE FIRST GENTILE CONVERT:


CORNELIUS WAS THE FIRST GENTILE GOD
REVEALED HIMSELF TO. WITHOUT THE HOLY
SPIRIT, HOW WOULD THE WORD OF GOD SPREAD
TO OTHER NATIONS?
THE FIRST GENTILE CONVERT:
HAVE YOU HEARD THAT OUR LORD JESUS
CHRIST EVER BEAT DRUMS, BURN INCENSE OR
LIGHT CANDLES? RIGHT FROM PETER, TO WHOM
THIS MINISTRY WAS HANDED, TO PAUL AND
OTHERS WHO SERVED IN THE MINISTRY, HAVE
YOU HEARD ANY OF THEM BEAT DRUM, BURN
INCENSE OR OR LIGHT CANDLES USED
PERFUMERY OR ANY OF ALL THE OTHER
ABOMINABLE ACTS YOU TAKE DELIGHT IN
DOING IN THE NAME OF SPIRITUALISM?
Which spirit is that? When our Lord Jesus Christ
had not yet bestowed the spirit on His disciples,
He told them not to enter into the way of the
Samaritans but to go to the lost sheep of Israel.
That is to say, without the Holy Spirit the world
would perish. Because when our Lord Jesus
Christ lived in flesh, He had limited functions. He
directed the disciples to the Israelites only. If
they entered a house they would ask if there

were any Israelite dwelling there, and they would


attend to only the Israelites. If there were no
Israelites, they would leave. It is exactly what
the church denominations are doing. When they
get to a group of people, they will ask if
members of their churches are there. In the
hospital they will ask if their member is there.
Such practices are carnal and not spiritual.
When our Lord Jesus Christ had bestowed the
spirit on His disciples, Cornelius had a dream,
and an angel told him that God had heard his
prayer. The angel told him to send somebody to
Joppa to meet one Peter who lodged with Simon
the tanner, and that Peter would tell him what to
do. It was not the spirit directing Cornelius but
an angel. Cornelius, the centurion sent three of
his men to Peter. Before the arrival of the three,
the spirit had already informed Peter that three
people were waiting outside for him. Even before
the messengers left to their destination, Peter
saw in a trance how heaven opened and certain
vessel descending unto him, as it had been a
great sheet knit at the four corners and was let
down to the earth:wherein were all manners of
four footed animals and other beasts of the earth
and, and wild beast and creeping things, and
fowls of the air, and he was told to kill and eat.
But he refused on the excuse that he had never

eaten anything common or unclean. This action


was repeated three times, and the vessel was
carried up. The voice told him that what God
hath cleansed, call
not thou common. This vision really disturbed
him; and as he was thinking over it, the three
men from Cornelius arrived, the same spirit told
him, Behold, three men seek thee, and he went
out and saw the three men from Cornelius, who
told him their mission. These men were Gentiles.
Remember that our Lord Jesus Christ had told
them not to enter the way of the Gentiles but
these were Gentiles before him. The situation
worried Peter but the Spirit told him to follow
them. SINCE HE WALKED IN THE SPIRIT, HE HAD
TO OBEY THE DICTATES OF THE SPIRIT. PETER
OBEYED THE SPIRIT AND WENT TO CORNELIUS.
ON SEEING PETER, CORNELIUS FELL DOWN AT
HIS FEET, AND WORSHIPPED HIM. BUT PETER
TOOK HIM UP, SAYING, STAND UP; MYSELF ALSO
AM A MAN. Peter told him you know that it is
unlawful for a Jew to keep company, or come
unto one of another nation. But God hath shewed
me that I should call no man common or unclean,
therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as
soon as I was sent for; I ask therefore for what
intent ye have sent for me? Cornelius narrated
the preceding events that led to this meeting and

Peter opened his mouth and told them about our


Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of all. Those who
were present received the Holy Spirit. THAT WAS
THE FIRST TIME IN HUMAN HISTORY THE WORD
OF GOD WAS EXTENDED BEYOND THE JEWS.
CORNELIUS WAS THE FIRST GENTILE GOD
REVEALED HIMSELF TO. WITHOUT THE HOLY
SPIRIT, HOW WOULD THE WORD OF GOD SPREAD
TO OTHER NATIONS?
NOTE THAT WHEN THE TWELVE DISCIPLES
WALKED WITH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, THEY
WERE NEVER TOLD TO ENTER INTO THE WAY OF
THE SAMARITANS OR OF THE GENTILES. SO
WHEN THE OTHER ELEVEN HEARD THAT PETER
HAD GONE TO THE GENTILES WITH THE GOSPEL,
THEY ACCUSED PETER OF BRINGING
CONFUSION. BUT WHEN THEY GATHERED, HE
TOLD THEM OF HIS VISION AND WHAT
FOLLOWED, THEY WERE SATISFIED. THAT IS
WHY IT IS SAID THAT WHOEVER WALKS IN THE
SPIRIT DOES NOT ERR. IF THE SPIRIT TELLS YOU
TO GO TO BABANGIDA, OR QUEEN ELIZABETH,
AND INFORM HIM OR HER OF THESE THINGS, GO
STRAIGHT. BY DOING THAT THERE IS NO
MISTAKE AND NO ONE CAN CHALLENGE YOU.
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS LOVE
Brethren, our confidence is in the Spirit.

Wherever the Spirit directs you, go forth. If the


spirit tells you to go and worship in the Roman
Catholic Church, do so. If you are told to go to
the Presbyterian, or Amorc, or any place for that
matter, do not hesitate. There is no
discrimination in this Kingdom. Listen and
hearken to the Spirit, in whatever you are
directed. THE SPIRIT DOES NOT CREATE
DIVISION. WITH HIM THERE IS NEITHER MALE
NOR FEMALE, YOUNG OR OLD. WE HAVE NO
PROBLEMS WITH THE MOSLEMS, MEMBERS OF
THE OGBONI, CHRISTIANS. WE HAVE NO
TROUBLE WITH GHOSTS, MAN, OBON, ROBBERS
AND THIEVES. WHAT IS REQUIRED OF US IS TO
LISTEN TO THE SPIRIT IN WHATEVER WE ARE
TOLD TO DO. WE HAVE NO TROUBLE WITH
WHITES, OR BLACKS. SINCE OUR CONFIDENCE
IS IN THE SPIRIT, WHEREVER YOU ARE SENT, GO
THERE BECAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS NO
BETHEL.
Remember that when Saul was to go to
Damascus to arrest the followers of our Lord
Jesus Christ, he was authorized by the high
priest to arrest and jail anyone who called on the
name of our Lord Jesus Christ. On his way, bright
light shone round about him from heaven, and the
voice of the Lord called on him, Saul, Saul, why
persecutest thou me? And he said who art thou

Lord? And the voice said; I am Jesus whom thou


persecute.
Saul was struck blind and for three days he did
not see. It was the same Jesus who told him to
go to one Ananias. The same Jesus revealed to
Ananias about Saul. This shows to you that the
spirit is that of love. He told Ananias to go and
pray for Saul that Saul may receive his sight. Can
you see the situation? On learning the order,
Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many
of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy
saints at Jerusalem. And here he hath authority
from the chief Priests to bind all that call on thy
name. But the Lord said unto him: Go thy way,
for he is a chosen vessel unto Me, to bear My
name before the Gentiles and kings, and the
children of Israel. Ananias did not argue but went
his way because he was in the spirit. When he
arrived there, he placed his hands on him and
said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that
appeared unto thee in the way as thou carest,
hath sent me, thou mayest receive thy sight, and
be filled with the Holy Spirit. And immediately
there fell from his eyes as it had been scale; and
he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was
baptized. Such is the work of the Spirit. YOU DO
NOT BEHAVE ANYHOW YOU LIKE. IT IS OUR
DUTY TO DO THIS WORK. IF WE WALK IN THE

SPIRIT, THERE WILL BE NEITHER QUARRELING,


NOR FIGHTING, NOR TROUBLE, NOR CONFLICT
BUT LOVE WILL BE FOUND EVERYWHERE.
2ND LESSON: GALATIANS 5: 22-23
But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace,
long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
meekness, temperance; against such there is no
law.
Brethren, have you heard the Scripture? He sent
Cornelius to go to Peter and be told what to do.
Peter went to him as he was also directed. Did
Peter beat up Cornelius, or quarrel, or curse or
abuse him? He went and saved him, and
converted Cornelius to become a Christian. He
told Ananias to go and pray for a man called Saul
that he may receive his sight. When Ananias
went to Saul, did he beat, curse or extort Saul?
IN THE SAME MANNER, IF THE FATHER DIRECTS
YOU TO GO TO A CERTAIN BROTHERS HOUSE,
OR TO LAGOS, AND OTHER PLACES, IT IS OUR
DUTY TO OBEY, AND SERVE WHOEVER IS
CONCERNED WITH LOVE. IT IS THE WORK OF
GRACE, MERCY, TRUTH, AND PATIENCE, WHICH
HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH QUARRELING,
MURDER, OR SNATCHING SOMEBODYS WIFE OR
HUSBAND.
OBEY THE DIRECTIVE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

We have no particular Bethel since our functional


Bethel is the Holy Spirit. Thus, the issue of
posing as an elder or prophet in charge of the
Bethel does not arise. Your duty is to listen to
the spirit and do what it tells you. Whoever walks
in the spirit is a child of God, but whoever walks
in flesh is of Satan. As at now, members of WAI
(War Against Indiscipline) Brigade had come to
help maintain order in the premises, but it is
reported that members of the Youth Fellowship
relentlessly oppose them. Are you the only owner
of these premises? Have they come to kill? They
have merely come to help guard the place.
ANYBODY CAN COME AND JOIN HANDS WITH
YOU IN THE SERVICE, AS LONG AS THE SPIRIT
OF GOD DIRECTS THEM. AS I AM, IF SOMEBODY
COMES TO ME AND SAY THAT HE IS GOING TO
PREACH, I WILL MERELY THANK THE FATHER
AND GET DOWN FOR HIM, KNOWING THAT IT
WILL GIVE ME VACATION. IS IT NOT ONE AND
THE SAME THING?
Can you now realize that there is no law here?
The Father had directed all of you, ordained
ones, elders, Christ Servants, Christ Students,
and others to guard the premises. If you cannot
do the work, and the Holy Spirit mobilizes
another group of people elsewhere to come and
do it, why do you resist them? On this note, we

are not under law but our confidence is in the


Holy Spirit. If the Spirit directs you, obey
accordingly. It is the Father who sends you and
you are not under any law. Except in a situation
where somebody tells you that what he does is a
personal opinion. In that case, do not obey. But
whatever the spirit tells you, even when
somebody comes to you and says that the Father
sends him to come and pray for you, kneel down
and receive the prayer because it is for your own
good.
