WHAT GOD IS DOING NOW IN HIS CHURCH - Part 1
Why will our Lord and Saviour allow a lock down of nearly two months and still be counting on Nigeria and more than that in several Christian nations to affect His church globally not minding that it is adversely affecting our worship unto Him? Why is the global pandemic affecting Ministers of God and even killing a great percentage of them globally despite all the anointing we profess to carry? Why has it actually defied all scientific and medical solutions despite the claims by many that certain drugs or methods can cure it? I think by the grace and mercy of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, I have been given an unction and a direction to answer this questions and many more which may be bothering too many of us. I am not claiming to be a prophet of this end time like many have falsely claimed, I am only an apostle of God called out by God, trained and sent out to also raise disciples of our Lord Jesus in the Bible Institute He has placed under me. So instead of giving out this message to our students only, the Lord said, “it is for all in His church worldwide”. I know I will be called names because I want to spoil businesses for many of my colleagues in the Lord’s vineyard. Some will say I am a heretic while some will warn their ministers and congregation to avoid me. This is why I am not writing all these years but now, I am ready for their bombardments. Now let’s face the truth as it is: this pandemic is from God and not China and directed to warn Christians all over the world about the impending danger looming in the spirit realm, the preparation of God’s release of the latter rain upon His disciples who are trained as His army to go round the world and preach the true gospel of the kingdom within forty days and forty nights before the Antichrist arrives. To show believers all over the world that we are deceiving ourselves and also deceiving the unbelieving world that they do not have regard again for our so-called gospel and the God we profess to serve. To also show us what God calls true worship and not what we gather every Sundays or Saturdays for some that meet on Saturdays or Wednesdays and Thursdays mid-week service, to do all in the name of worshipping God. Why was China used? It is because China as a nation has never believed in God talkless of our Lord Jesus and so she is more than ready to be a tool in the hand of the enemy. They are coming with more evils that will be more devastating globally than this. Infact they are the ones being used to prepare the weapons the antichrist will use to rule and destroy the world. But they can never be super-power or produce the antichrist, no far be it. The man of sin is coming from Middle East precisely Israel, I will write about him when I am done with this and use the scriptures to trace his roots. Now let’s hear from the Lord:-
“Hear this word that the Lord hath spoken against you, O children of Israel (i.e. the church, but if it is written to Jacob then it is the physical Israel), against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt (i.e. separated or called out of the world), you only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? Will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing? Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? Shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all? Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city and the Lord hath not done it? Surely the Lord will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. The lion hath roared who will not fear? The Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy? Publish in the palaces at Ashdod, and in the palaces in the land of Egypt, and say assembly yourselves upon the mountains of Samaria and behold the great tumults in the midst thereof, and the oppressed in the midst thereof. For they know not to do right, saith the Lord, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces (churches). Therefore thus saith the Lord God, an adversary there shall be even round about the land, and he shall bring down thy strength from thee, and thy palaces (churches) shall be spoiled” (Amos 3: 1-11). Any good Christian or right thinking person that reads this place, will see clearly that God is saying there can’t be any evil in the city or land or the world and He has not done it or the One doing it. In essence, He brings that evil as the last option to warn His people to change before His wrath falls on them. He can go the extra mile to cause His people to obey Him. For example, He knows that the people of Jerusalem / Israel will be rebellious against His word after choosing and setting it apart, therefore He planted her (i.e Jerusalem/Israel) in the centre of the whole world and surrounded them with enemies to act as their checks and balances (Ezek 5 v 5). And so anytime, they defy all warnings to live aright, He will bring against them the sword of men using these countries and nations around to torment them. This is what the Muslims and Communist nations like China and North Korea are doing for Him where Christians worldwide are. Some will quickly ask me, “if this is a warning to believers, why is it killing unbelievers in their thousands or even millions if the recent data of the number it killed in Wuhan China is anything to go by?” The answer can be found in the book of Revelation about what will happen when antichrist mounts the throne. “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth” (Rev. 12: 15-16). This is the bigger or major problem the so-called church will go through as soon as the “man-child” is caught up to the throne of God. The woman here is the church for those that say and believe that the church will not meet antichrist, and “water as a flood after the woman” refers to decrees, laws and statements antichrist will give or make for the main lock down with death sentence or life imprisonment following defaulters, to stop worship or preaching of the gospel all over the world, targeted at the woman (i.e. the church) but the earth (i.e. the entire world will feel the impact of the initial tribulation or lock down before the great tribulation). And here the Lord God said, “For thus saith the Lord of hosts; yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake heavens (i.e. believers walking in the spirit), and the earth (believers walking in the flesh), and the sea (i.e. nations of the world) and the dry land (unbelievers); And I will shake all nations (vessels), and the desire of all nations (vessels) shall come and I will fill this house (His end time church) with glory, saith the Lord of hosts. The glory of this latter house (End-time church) shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts, and in this place (End-time church) will I give peace saith the Lord” (Haggai 2: 6-7, 9). Therefore this Covid-19 is God in action and using it to shake every creature. I could see stubborn kings (i.e. Presidents) of nations with their citizens bowing down to repent before the Lord and asking for mercy and forgiveness. This is awesome and still proving to humanity that He still owns heaven and earth and all that are in them. But it is still the beginning of His shaking until His Army manifests with great anointing no one has seen before. And this brings me to the main reason of putting this powerful exposition in writing.
WHO WILL BE CAUGHT UP? THE CHURCH OR THE MAN-CHILD COMPANY?
This is the most controversial message or question that has kept Christendom and the entire world on their toes after the ascension of Christ. Even the early Apostles had a feeling of it and were thrown aback when towards the end of their ministries as they learnt the truth about it. First of all, I did not use rapture that the world and the Christendom are familiar with, but decided to use what my Saviour used so as to clear any doubt. There are so many schools of thought over this controversy about whether the church will be raptured before the coming of the antichrist or during the great tribulation or after the reign of antichrist. These arguments have not done the Christian fold any good rather it has continued to reduce the standard of teachings and lifestyle the Christian family is preaching and living believing that if we are to be raptured before the antichrist, then we might not see these horrible things that are coming upon the earth. While others conclude that if we are seeing antichrist, why denying themselves the pleasures of life now? It is better to enjoy ourselves now so that when he comes we can return to faith and be serious. Hmmm! These insinuations are very frightening and are poised to send so many who started well but have back-slided into the lake of burning fire and brimstone.
THE MAN CHILD WILL BE CAUGHT UP OR RAPTURED AS THE WORLD PROCLAIM IT AND NOT THE CHURCH.
This will make the fathers that be all over the world and so many deceiving rabbis to attack me because I am trying to turn what they believed and preached upside down and make them look as deceivers to their congregation and stop their means of livelihood. One great deception Satan and many ministers of God or better still the Christian fold are deeply buried in, is that God will manage what He has and use believers that are available so as to actualize His plans on earth because we all have come short of His glory. They are right but have they asked or sought His face to see how to qualify for His selection? This man-child company form the church in the spirit or better still in Heaven as they came out of the woman (i.e. the church on earth which has no single power to face the devil). Before I go further to expound who this man-child company or the overcomers are, let me explain few things. The true church of God went spiritual or underground in April 1990 all over the world. God began to separate many who were ready to obey Him from religious legalism unto Himself as His special possession and started to train them. And He is rounding off the training and getting them ready to preach the gospel of the kingdom or gospel of judgment before the rise of the antichrist.
God created seven (7) days in a week, but He took possession of one (1) day and sanctified it, meaning He separated one day, dedicated or consecrated it unto Himself and made it holy because of His divine nature that is Holiness. It does not mean that the other six (6) days were evil after all He said that He saw that all things He created were good. In like manner, Mary the mother of Jesus was highly favoured and blessed among many women to give birth to Jesus through the conception of the Holy Ghost but after Him, she conceived and bare other children for Joseph and not for the Holy Ghost. And so those other children of Mary and Joseph were still loved by Jesus because they are His siblings despite the fact that they never received both the lifestyle and teachings of Jesus and were mocking Him until after He died and resurrected then they believed His teachings and joined His company. Can you see the picture of the man-child company now, their lifestyle and teachings are abhorred by even their siblings of the same mother like they did to Jesus, but after they are caught up, the church on earth will sit up and move into the wilderness (i.e. serious separation) to be purified and perfected to be able to bear the fierce anger of antichrist turned Satan and make it after. Wao! We are going somewhere as we want to see clearly the man-child company as pronounced by John the divine after the resurrected and glorified Lord Jesus brought him to the throne room:
“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child (or overcomers) who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron, (i.e. irresistible strength of the Holy Spirit) and her child was caught up (or raptured) unto God, and to his throne. And the woman (i.e. the church has now returned back to be joined by a large majority of those on earth waiting for rapture but have been left behind) fled into the wilderness (i.e. went into a forceful lock down or separation because the antichrist has appeared on the stage. This will be termed, “Exit the lion; enter the dragon”), where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there for a thousand two hundred and threescore days” (i.e. 3½ years) (Rev. 12:1-6). And here we go with the interpretation: A great wonder in Heaven (i.e. 3rd Heaven where the church of the first born as written in Heb. 12: 22-24 are being trained by the Holy Ghost before the Lord Himself because of the importance of this Man Child Company or overcomers). The Man child this woman is carrying in her womb has the symbol of the sun which represents the redeemed men disciples like the Sun of Righteousness and also the moon that are under the feet representing subdued not through war but through submission (i.e. submissive and redeemed women who are disciples). In essence the Man Child will be full of redeemed and glorified men and women disciples of God who truly followed the leading of the spirit of God whithersoever He goeth. Then upon the head of the woman is a crown of twelve stars. ‘Twelve” represents the number for “Divine Power or Authority”, while “stars represents spirits or angels or special messengers” and “crown represents kingship”. So this Man Child will possess the Divine Power or authority to be kings or rulers that will rule with Christ. They are to throw Satan and his cohorts down to this earth and take over from him, and so he does not want them to be born. The second wonder in heaven is the second heaven where Satan is gathering his own armies and thereby occupying where the wedding of the Bride and the Bridegroom will take place. The red dragon is Satan in his nature of war and the blood of the saints he has been drinking from ages. Look at his features and see where and how he is coming; he has seven heads which represent the seven (7) hills of Vaticanus (i.e. where St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican city Rome is situated. It is called a city on seven (7) hills), then ten (10) horns (i.e. the ten EU federated states that will be called United States of Europe or Europe League nation i.e. 666). At inception they will operate democratic principles of governance but later, they will change to communism when antichrist changes to Satan. How do I know one may ask? The image King Nebuchadnezzar saw in Daniel 2: 31-35 which was told and interpreted by Daniel as having an iron leg, but had part of the feet and toe iron and the other part of the feet and toe clay symbolizes that these ten EU federated states will operate with both democracy and communism. The “seven crowns upon the heads”, shows seven kings or kingdoms representing seven notable kings or Emperors that will rule or have ruled and represented Satan in all these ages. But Satan will gather their spirits together with other principalities, powers, rulers of darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places to help him stop the manifestation of this Man Child Company. But as soon as the woman (i.e. church written in heaven) gives birth to this man-child, the child will be caught up or better still raptured to heaven and the church being empty now and without strength will be joined by many of the members of the larger Pentecostalism left behind globally to start another conception of other children and the antichrist will teach them the difference between June and July. She will fly into the wilderness or better still have the main lock down of 42 months or 3 ½ years. This is awesome I believe, so let us sit up and know that God is using the lock down all over the world now to warn us.
Before I explain the difference between the Man-child, the church and also to show the large majority of our so-called church to sit up for God is no respecter of any man, let’s first show the biblical qualification for this Man-Child.
QUALIFICATION FOR BEING IN THE MAN-CHILD COMPANY
When Eve caused Adam to sin, God came down and placed a curse first on Satan, then the woman and finally on Adam. And so in Gen. 3:15-16; God said, “And I will put enmity between thee (Satan) and the woman, (the church) and between thy seed (the antichrist) and her seed; (the Lord Jesus first, and later the Man-Child) it shall bruise thy head and thou shalt bruise his heel (those that follow after). Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and they conception: in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee”. On this note, God gave three clear conditions that will make the Man-Child who will come out of the woman or the church here and who has fallen short of His glory to be able to overcome the devil. The first is that she will afflict her soul in fasting with spiritual weapons of prayer like groaning, travailing, weeping, wailing, howling, roaring and other form of special prayers in your closet as often as possible to birth into the kingdom spiritual or kingdom children.
The second is that the desire of this group will be unto the Lord Jesus as their Husband which in the scripture is simply “the just shall live by faith”. And this means that the righteous shall live by hearing, believing, confessing and acting on the Word. If you are not ready to believe, confess and obey the word of God no matter the way it is hurting you, forget about this company and overcoming the devil, the Lord will also be their sustenance. The third one is “and he shall rule over thee”. This simply means that the Lord Jesus through the channel of Authority He set up on earth shall rule over you. This is one area Satan has deceived and also continued to deceive large-majority of believers especially from the Western world that there is nothing like submission unto man. Please I am on my knees begging such people to help themselves now by running and placing themselves under submission even if you are a General Overseer or Superintendent. If you don’t do that, be rest assured that you are waiting for the antichrist to come and show you how to submit to authority. The Lord said in many places in the scripture, “……. In the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established” (Matt. 18:16; Num. 35:30; Deut. 17:6; Deut 19: 15; Jn. 8:17; Heb. 10:28; 1 Jn 5: 7-10). Let me explain this statement for doubting Thomas. The two or three witnesses the scripture is talking about are the law represented by Moses’ writings in Old Testament, Joshua, Kings, Chronicles, etc then the prophets personified in Elijah, so all the prophetic messages from the major and minor prophets are in them; and finally, Grace and the ministers under grace and that is the gospels of our Lord Jesus and the epistles of his New Testament disciples. So if you are in doubt of any part of the word of God; tell the person to prove it through two or three witnesses. If you continue to doubt, look at what God said through Apostle Paul; “for what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar, as it is written that thou mightest be justified in thy sayings; and mightest overcome when thou art judged (Rom. 3: 3-4). Paul by the leading of the Lord said, what if some stubborn Christians refuse to accept the truth, shall their unbelief nullify the word of God? And he answered, God forbid! Rather let us all become liars but let the word of God become truth, so that we may be justified when we quote His word. So if you don’t believe me after showing you submission from the law, let me show you from the other two witnesses to make all three witnesses. When this remaining Man-child company on earth that will form the Army of God will begin the preaching of the gospel of the kingdom for forty days and forty nights as it was in the days of Noah; we need to make reference to the writings of Joel in chapter 2: 4-8; “The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses, and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness (this is as a result of the level of truth they will tell all even if you are the President of the most feared nation in the world or where believers are butchered like animals, they will tell such people to their faces the judgment of God coming upon them). They shall run like mighty men, they shall climb the wall like men of war, and they shall march everyone on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks (i.e. this is talking about positions or grades like in the military where a Lt. Colonel for an example cannot break rank and disobey the orders of a Colonel or Brigadier General). Neither shall one thrust (rebel or attack) another, they shall walk everyone in his path (offices like Pastors will not go and operate as evangelists or this one where everyone now wants Apostle or Prophet). You can only operate in the ministry office you are called. This is the height of submission the Man child company will walk in, and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. This shows that no weapon can penetrate their bodies again because they are now immortal after receiving the latter rain. The second scriptural witness has been noted from the minor prophet. The third has so many and I will quote one and refer any to others. Paul by the leading of the Spirit had this to tell the church ”Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief, for this is unprofitable for you. (Heb. 13:17). Another one is like this from Paul, “Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God, whose faith follow, considering the end o their conversation (lifestyle) (Heb. 13:7). Peter the Apostle of circumcision had this to say, “likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud and giveth grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5: 5). There are so many other areas but let me move on with other things. In continuation of unveiling this Man-child company, let us look at their qualification again from the prophets. Prophet Isaiah described both the state of the Christian family globally in this end time popularly called the church on earth and the Man-child company referred as the church of the first born written in Heaven in Hebrews. “And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man saying, we will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel, only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach. In that day shall the branch of the Lord be beautified and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel” (Isa. 4: 1-2). We are not just in the dispensation that Isaiah was talking about, but we are right there with just extremely few remaining years for everything to come to an end. And so Isaiah said that now we have reached the end, “seven women” which means all the churches according to Rev. Chapters two and 3 representing all the Christian religious organization in this dispensation of grace. Why is it so? It is because seven is the number for perfection, completeness or totality and so this means all denominations, ministries and what other name we like to answer shall take hold of “one man” i.e. the Lord Jesus), “we will eat our own bread”, meaning we will believe and preach our own doctrine, “and wear our own apparel” which means walk in our own righteousness which is like filthy rags, “only let us be called by thy name” meaning only allow us to use your name (i.e. the name of Jesus to perform miracles so that people will not turn their backs on us), “to take away our reproach”, and this is totally against bearing His reproaches He has called on the Man-child company to come out of the camp and bear His reproaches in Heb. 13:13-14 so as to be like Him. God is going right and the church on earth is going left. The “branch of the Lord” there is talking about the Army of God and the “fruit of the earth” is the remnants of this Man child that remain on earth, but look at what Isaiah said, “for them to be beautiful, glorious, excellent and comely, they must escape from Israel or better still separate from religious legalism or denominational barrier unto the Lord and worship Him in spirit and in truth for the Father seeketh such to worship Him. So the Company of the Man-child are those that will agree to separate unto the Lord. If you go further and read vs 3-5 of that Isaiah 4, you will see how He will treat the Man-child company. In Romans chapter 8, Paul talked about the Man-child company when he clearly called them the “Sons of God” stressing that they are the ones the whole creation is waiting for as their manifestation will bring the end of the curse all creation is going through. Look at them coming out of their separation or wilderness to preach the main gospel of the kingdom with power and authority from the songs of Solomon; “who is this that cometh out of the wilderness (i.e. separation or hiding place) like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant? (Songs of Solomon 3:6).
The man child was born and raised by the Holy spirit not in any denominational barrier or religious legalism but in the wilderness and under an apple tree. At least the scriptures are being unveiled so nobody will say it is my own interpretation. Again Paul by the leading of the Lord said, “Now the Lord is that spirit, and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”. (2 Cor. 3: 17). This scripture has many a time been misinterpreted by many of us in the Lord’s vineyard. The real interpretation is if the spirit of God is in you or operating in your church or fellowship, you must not cage Him with your activities or programs or personal agenda, but give Him the liberty or free access to operate or direct you or your program the way He likes. After all He is the Lord and must operate as the Lord not as a servant or a visitor. This is why the Lord spoke again through Paul in his second epistle to Thessalonians, “for the mystery of iniquity doth already work; only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way” (2 Thess. 1: 7). This place is another confusing factor but if you understand what Paul said in 2 Cor. 3: 17 about liberty of the spirit, you will understand this place. The word “letteth” according to Chambers 21st century Dictionary is to allow, permit or cause to do something, to give the use of. While “letter” is a continual process of let, and so it is not the Holy Spirit as many thought that letteth or will or allow or permit, or cause the mystery of iniquity that is already working to continue to work. But the Holy Spirit is involved as this is talking about the company of the Man-child who will allow, permit, give access to the Holy Spirit to use their vessels to achieve God’s purpose on earth, until they are taken out of the way by the Holy Spirit through being caught up to the throne or be raptured as the world choose to call it. The company of the Man-child can also be identified with Paul’s epistle to the church on earth through the Hebrews as he said, “for the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp (outside the church) wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate (outside Jerusalem representing outside the church), let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp (outside the church), bearing his reproach. For here have we no continuing city, (denomination or church) but we seek one to come” (Heb, 13: 11-14). This is what Jesus requires us as the church on earth to do so that we can bear His reproach and He will sanctify us and make us citizens of the coming kingdom, but the present church refuse to come and meet Him outside the world organized religious system preferring according to Isaiah 4: 1-2, to preach our own doctrine, walk in our own righteousness and then use His name to work miracles and do other things that are beneficial to us so as to take away our reproach instead of bearing His reproach that He requires for us to be sanctified. But the Man-child company agreed to do it and availed themselves to the Holy spirit for separation from religious legalism, consecrating themselves unto Him, bearing His reproach and being sanctified for the Master’s use. And they will be rewarded with the liquid fire. (i.e. baptism of fire or latter rain) which will make them immortal thereby perfecting any remaining imperfection as they come out of the wilderness with great power and authority to preach the gospel of the kingdom/judgment for forty days and forty nights after which they will be caught up and antichrist will appear on the stage to punish the woman (i.e. the church) that gave birth to the Man-child, and then the main lock down of 42 months or three and half years targeted at the church worldwide will be declared. Two more things the Man-child company will enjoy are:
- “thus saith the Lord of hosts; in those days it shall come to pass, that ten (10) men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew (a true worshipper who has separated himself/herself unto the Lord or better still the Man-child company), saying, we will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you” (Zech 8:25). The Man-child company doesn’t need any advertisement or prolonged evangelism or the so-called witnessing before people will recognize them when they receive power and come out of their hiding places. The anointing will make the difference. People will drop their billions of dollars, Euros, pounds, and the world accepted monies at their feet begging them to take, but they have no need of all those things. Everyone’s attention is focused on how to quickly harvest the souls that were fully ripe but with nobody to harvest them in the past.
- If they are moving on or decide to rest for a whole at any place, the visible cloud of the Lord will cover their front and back in the day and a pillar of fire will do the same for them in the night for a defence from any attack (Ref. Isa. 4:5). It will be so glorious that people will not be told a second time that this is what they are waiting for. The world and governments of the world will term them as “UFO” (i.e. unidentified foreign objects), and roll out their greatest weapons against them, but that will be at their peril because nothing can penetrate their immortal bodies. In rounding off the mystery about this Man-child company, let us see two places in the book of Revelation:- “And I looked, and, lo, a lamb stood on the Mount Zion (heavenly Jerusalem), and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name (the word of God) written in that foreheads (minds)……… and they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled women (churches and all the religious organizations and legalism governing the world); for they are virgins. These are they which follow the lamb represented by the Holy Spirit whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men (and not from Israel), being the first fruits unto God and to the lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God (Rev. 14:1,3-5). This is another hard nut for many ministers to unravel. A lot said they are those Jewish saints that will be redeemed as mentioned in Rev. Chapter 7, but it is a lie. The Jewish saints mentioned in chapter 7 were redeemed from the 12 tribes of Israel and neither from the earth nor from among men. They were again mentioned in chapter 15 as singing the victory songs of Moses after God’s over-running of Pharaoh and his armies for them. These were selected by God from among the Man-child company as the leaders or the kings of Nations that will survive and priests of those nations. They are the first fruits unto God and the lamb but don’t forget there are other fruits which the church left behind will fill up. They were separated from every part of religious legalism that has gripped the church on earth. They followed the Holy Ghost wherever He leads them and were not rebellious to the Heavenly voice. They are without fault before the throne because the blood of Jesus was readily available to atone and cleanse their sins. Truly like Jesus, the prince of this world cometh and had nothing in them. Why? This is because they totally separated from his religious system, traditions of men that transgress the word of God and other sorts of evil Satan set up to distract men from serving God in spirit and in truth. I will not talk about the elders now because they have not been formed. They too will be redeemed from every kindred, and tongue and people and nation if you look at Rev. Chapter 5 vs 8-9 and formed later after redemption and that is where I am begging God and striving to be among those to be selected with my family. A great point to note here is that they will not be twenty four (24) in number, no far be it, because that is God’s idiomatic expression or way of using numbers to reveal heavenly things to His people. The number “24” in God’s arithmetic of numbers is Priesthood. To be called “Elders” means they are older in faith than the one hundred and forty-four that will be redeemed from Israel after the great tribulation. Those from Israel are priests, while the twenty four that will sit round the throne of God in Heaven are high priests who will take over from the Holy Spirit who has been doing that job for the saints when Jesus ascended into Heaven, the spirit will go back to the Father after redemption. And then finally for the Man-child in this teaching, after three and half years of resting, they will lead Michael and his angels and march into second heaven and throw Satan and his cohorts down to this earth. Some say it is Michael that will lead them, but it is not biblical because Satan is arch-angel number one (1) and Michael is number two (2). In God’s hierarchy the one under cannot usurp authority over the one above, that will be coup or mutiny in the armed forces. The second point is that man was made to be greater than Satan, but Satan rebelled and subtly planned and executed a coup, overthrew man and has been punishing man for ages. Now that Jesus our elder brother has restored man back to his former position, the man – child will be the ones that will command Michael and his angels to throw Satan and his cohorts out of second heaven down to this earth. And so overcoming Satan in Rev. 12: 11 is not the angels because they don’t use the blood of Jesus as the blood is meant for redemption and they have no word of testimony. But the Man-child was redeemed with the Blood of Jesus and they have great testimonies of what they passed through in the hand of the devil.
WHAT WILL BE THE HOPE OF THE CHURCH ON EARTH?
Why will the church that Jesus Christ came, died for, called out of the world, gave His spirit which keeps following them and manifesting their words with signs and wonders, be left behind for antichrist to vent his anger and frustration on? Why will the Lord close His eyes and allow a man He called a cruel lord and a king of fierce countenance that understands dark sentences punish His beloved the way he is warning up to do? What will make God call His church “sinful nation”?
These questions are frightening but they all have answers in the scriptures. Let us see how God is calling on heaven and earth to come and bear Him witness of what we His church is doing unto Him as He spoke through Isaiah: “Hear, O heavens (i.e. first, second and third heaven and all the inhabitants) and give ear, O earth: for the Lord hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib, but Israel (i.e. the church) doth not know, my people (i.e. children of God) doth not consider. Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evil doers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. Why should ye be stricken anymore? (i.e. why should we allow the devil to continue to feast on us manipulating us into continuous sin?) ye will revolt more and more: (the more they increase, the more they revolt against God) The whole head is sick (the whole ministers of the gospel are spiritually sick) and the whole heart faint (the entire congregation are fainting spiritually). From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it (i.e. from the least member of the church to all the General Overseers or head Pastors, there is no spiritual life): but wounds, and bruises, and putrefying sores (ill smelling sores); they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment (the healing anointing has not touched them). Your country is desolate (the entire Christendom is empty), your cities are burned with fire (your denominations, ministries and fellowship centres are under severe persecutions), your land (your vessels), strangers (demons) devour it in your presence, and it is desolate (empty), as overthrown by strangers (demons). And the daughter of Zion, (i.e. the army of God) is left as a cottage in a vineyard (church), as a lodge (also a small house) in a garden of cucumbers as a besieged city (surrounded by demons). Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom and we should have been like unto Gomorrah. Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom (the church referred to as Sodom give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah (congregation) referred to as people of Gomorrah). To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me (i.e. prayers, praises and worship, thanksgiving, fasting, etc) saith the Lord. I am full of the burnt offering of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; (i.e. all the sacrifices of thanksgiving, sowing of seed in many areas, launching, etc) and I delight not in the blood of bullocks or of lambs or of he-goats (i.e. all the seed offerings to appease God and cause Him to do what He abhors). When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? Bring no more oblations (worship songs) incense (our worship) is an abomination unto me, the new moons, and Sabbath (i.e. our festivities like weekly vigil, fasting and prayers, birthdays) the calling of assemblies (gathering for fellowship), I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting (i.e. in-gathering of the saints). Your new moons and appointed feasts my soul hateth (i.e. Christmas, Good Fridays, Easter celebrations, valentine, New Year, etc). They are a trouble unto me. I am weary to bear them. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear, your hands are full of blood (i.e. full of our own will) (Isaiah 1 vs 2-15).
The Lord did not hide anything from us and I believe that if anybody wants to tell himself/herself the gospel truth you will agree that this is definitely the state of the church on earth. The Lord’s anger is so hot that He called heavens even Satan and his cohorts, and the entire earth to come and bear Him witness. I am afraid ooooo because of God’s anger. If man or another spirit is pursuing you, you run to God, but what will you do when God is the one pursuing you? Too bad for us except there is going to be urgent radical changes in our lives individually and collectively. God in the latter part of this chapter has this to say so as to remind us that it used to be better in our early days or years of Christianity than what is happening now.
“How is the faithful city become an harlot! (i.e. the church which was faithful at inception; is now a harlot). It was full of judgment, (truth) righteousness lodged in it, but now murderers (i.e. haters and betrayers of their fellow brethren for gain or reward). Thy silver is become dross (i.e. our salvation/redemption is become worthless), thy wine mixed with water (i.e. our spirits are mixed with falsehood). Thy princes (ministers) are rebellious, and companions of thieves; every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards, they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them” (Isaiah 1:21-23). Let any minister who is operating a denomination or a ministry that follows the same pattern of church as an organization, even those that pretend to operate church as an organism come out to say he/she or they are free from all that God has said here, and he/she will see how the judgment of God will begin to fall upon him/her and the congregation. Yet in the midst of all this His anger and as a merciful God that He is, He said:
“Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes, cease to do evil. Learn to do well, seek judgment (the truth) relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together (with the word of God) saith the Lord; though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
ON WHAT CONDITION IS THE LORD PROPOSING THESE THINGS?
“And in that day seven women (seven being the number for totality, perfection or completeness means all the churches and religious organizations that pretend to be worshipping God) shall take hold of one man (i.e. Lord Jesus), saying, we will eat our own bread (eat is to believe something spiritually and bread is food and the word of God is our spiritual food meaning, we will believe and teach our own message or doctrine), wear our own apparel (if it is a garment, it will be salvation) but wearing an apparel is like wearing a robe and the only robe we know of is robe of righteousness, meaning walking in our righteousness which God described in Isaiah 64:6 as a filthy rag), only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach (i.e. only allow us to answer and use the name of Jesus to work miracles and do other vital things so that people will believe we are from you and it will remove our reproach instead of bearing His reproach”. This is very serious and painful to the Lord our God to see all our shortcomings, we turned round to give Him our own conditions and maintained that we want to do our own things in our own way. And not only that, we come to the book of Revelation 3: 14-20 and begin to boost to the same God that we are doing very well:
“And unto the angel (messenger) of the church of the Laodiceans write; these things saith the Amen (i.e. so be it), the faithful and true witness (one like John the Baptist who said exactly what the scripture had earlier spoken about him), the beginning of the creation of God (i.e. Grace and Truth). I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot, I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue (will vomit or cast) you out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods (i.e. our population or members are increasing, our branches have increased so much globally, our home fellowships have increased, our bank accounts have increased tremendously), and have need of nothing, and knowest not that thou are wretched, and miserable, and poor (lacking the knowledge of present truth) and blind (spiritually blind that they don’t know they are out of the way) and naked (living their lives in sin). I counsel thee (another appeal from the Lord so as not to destroy us) to buy of me gold tried in the fire (i.e. God’s kind of faith gotten through trials and tribulation and absolute resolve to bear His reproaches), that thou mayest be rich (in the word of God and things of the spirit), and white raiment (which will make you to walk in righteousness) that the shame of thy nakedness (sin) do not appear, and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve (this is medicine meant for the treatment of the eyes which is simply the anointing or leading of the Holy Spirit so that we can see clearly) that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten, be zealous therefore and repent. Behold I stand at the door (of our hearts) and knock. If any man (no more groups or congregation that keep sinning as they are multiplying but individuals just like He called Abraham with his wife Sarah alone) hear my voice, and open the door (of his/her heart), I will come in to him and will sup fellowship) with him and he with me. This scripture has again showed us the state of this last church age in this dispensation of grace, full of pride, arrogance, deception, lies, worldliness by measuring our relationship with God with our increase in earthly possession that has no spiritual value. I need to explain this place a little bit. Laodicean city was very good in medical field as they specialized in eye and ear treatment. They were also very good in manufacturing of textile materials. It was known as a great banking and financial centre like the United States of America. The city had so many rich people full of themselves that they believe they don’t need God as their wealth can do everything for them just like the Americans of today. They had so many things to give out like clothes etc, just like the Americans have so many things like new clothes, second hand ones, cars, electronics, etc to give out. And so all the entreaties from Apostle Paul to Bishop Archippus in Colossians 4: 16-17 who was their leader fell on deaf ears. Spiritually Laodicea symbolizes lukewarmness, self deception, human right or peoples’ right better still democracy. Everybody knows his/her right and is not ready to drop it and obey constituted authority. The people’s right must be sort first and be obeyed before knowing what God is saying. This is the picture of American citizens and the Christendom of today because of democracy. Any church that is run like this which is democracy is on her way to calamity because they are already in deception and moving to serious anarchy. And this is how antichrist will come in first, but later as Satan introduces communism. God comes second or even last, this is absolute madness, but that is where the church is today and once you fail to adopt this deceptive system prevalent today in the body of Christ, many will leave to go and start their own and continue to multiply rebellion. Unlike the people of Laodicea that Paul was supervising and warning, this church age is being supervised and warned by the Holy Ghost and He is sending the seventh messenger of this church who will have the characteristics of “Amen, meaning so be it”, therefore he will believe and preach the word of God as it is. As the “faithful and true witness”, he will be faithful to the Lord that called him unto the end and also bear the witness of truth. This means he can only say what the scripture says about him and will neither add nor subtract. “Beginning of the creation of God” symbolizes Grace, for God began creation” with grace and grace produces truth, it doesn’t demand truth. It is the law that makes demand, and so he will be full of grace and also walking under grace in order to produce truth. So what follows are the messages he will be giving this church age. But will all these make this church age to repent and turn a new leaf, no far be it, so God now prepared them for antichrist to do the talking when he comes and many for hell and destruction. Let me make this reference from Isaiah the prophet about the church of God being dumped in hell for choosing to do our own will, preaching our own gospel and following after our own righteousness as against doing His will and preaching the truth He gave this church. Funny enough, despite all the rebellion and deception we the church are going through this is the church age God has given more revelations than the rest because this is the end and we have to know and see all things happen before many of us live. God spoke through Isaiah and said, “Now will I sing to my well beloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard (church). My well beloved (the Lord Jesus) hath a vineyard (church) in a very fruitful hill (Mount Zion in Heaven). And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine (very serious believers) and built a tower (a tabernacle) in the midst of it, and also made a winepress (Holy Spirit) therein; and he looked that it should bring forth grapes (submissive believers) and it brought forth wild grapes (rebellists). And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard (church). What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? Wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes (submissive and serious minded believers), brought it forth wild grapes (rebellious and worldly mind Christians). And now go to, I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard. I will take away the hedge (defence, which is their faith in the Lord) thereof, and it shall be eaten up, (and they will move into serious doubt and unbelief) and break down the wall thereof (love which is obedience to the word of God) and it shall be trodden down. And I will lay it waste, it shall not be pruned, nor digged (i.e. can’t he supervised or rebuked for correction, but there shall come up briers and thorns (i.e. wild animals in form of believers, uncultured, unsubmissive and mannerless human beings as believers). I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it (i.e. withhold the anointing from flowing in all the things believers are doing. This is why there are so much fake miracles as many ministers are getting fake power for miracles from native doctors and occult men and women, while some do arrange miracles with people who are not sick but are paid to claim they were sick and have been healed). For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel (i.e. children of God) and the men of Judah (i.e. his ordained ministers) his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment (truth) but behold oppression, for righteousness, but behold a cry. Woe unto them that join house to house (fellowship), that lay field to field (crusades and evangelism), till there be no place that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth”. (Isa. 5: 1-8).
With the current state of the church globally, God is using this global lock down to teach the church that what He demands from her now is to come to Him alone and no more in groups or the kind of multitudes we witness that sit in one large stadium on Sundays all in the name of worshipping Him. This is what He said in Rev. 3 vs. 20 that He is knocking at the door of any individual heart not group, because no group will all like to obey, if such person or persons hear His voice and opens his/her heart, He will come in to fellowship with such an one. A family of husband, wife, children (not yet married and living together), maids and servants living together are one. This is why He said in Matt. 18: 20, “for where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them”. Every part of the word of God (the ministers) have hidden from the knowledge of the congregation, God will unveil it to those hungry and thirsty souls who are looking or seeking to know the truth. This is why I don’t hide any truth God reveals to me whether you are for me or against me so that on the judgment day, the truth you heard will judge you. This is what He told Abraham He said we should look unto in Isaiah 51:1-2, “Hearken (listen) to me ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: look unto the rock (Christ) whence ye are hewn, and to hole of the pit (hell or the world system) whence ye are digged. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you, for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him. If we are really looking unto Abraham we should go to Him alone so as to have a direct and personal relationship with Him but remember Joel 2, don’t break your rank of submission. It is very important if you must have a relationship with God. Nobody is a lone ranger in this race except you want to be cast out and another takes your position and crown. Otherwise see what Jesus told the church through the centurion.
“And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, and saying, Lord my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him; I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me, and I say to this man, go and he goeth, and to another, come and cometh, and to my servant, do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it, he marveled, and said to them that followed, verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith,, no, not in Israel (church). And I say unto you, that many (unbelievers) shall come from the east and west and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom i.e. believers) shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matt. 8: 5-12). This is one of the closest Jesus had come to making it clear the place submission to His authority channel has in this race. Look at an unbelieving centurion or Roman soldier being under submission and having those under him too knowing that as Jesus is under God’s authority, and the demons attacking his servant also under Jesus, just asked Him to speak the word only and the demons will obey and leave tormenting his servant because there is no distance in the spirit. Jesus was amazed and said He has not found such faith in His church, and for this reason of His church refusing to place themselves under submission, many will perish in hell including large majority of ministers of God, who believe that as General Overseers or Superintendents or Head Pastors they are above submitting to God through other men of God. They are too big to be counseled or rebuked, the antichrist will do those things for God in their lives. As I was talking about God using the lock down to teach the church what He requires at this time as we see the days winding up very fast. And He is saying it is a time of individual or family worship and if we must gather together at all, it doesn’t have to be more than twenty (20). I wonder who gave government this wisdom because this is biblical as twenty is number for redemption. And only those that are ready for redemption should gather together. Jesus gathered only twelve (12) and all efforts by the multitudes to be more than that, He kept dispersing them. Even when he sent seventy (70) out two by two, as they wanted to settle with other disciples to form a bigger church, He preached hard truth and the seventy (70) left remaining only the twelve (12). The same with the early Apostles, when they wanted to form a big church in Jerusalem, because of the serious converts, they already had, God sent persecution to them. First Stephen was stoned to death and they all scattered and ran for their lives but the Apostles regrouped with their families and formed another church. Then James was arrested and killed, Peter was arrested and imprisoned waiting to be beheaded after Easter, but God in His infinite mercy and wisdom knows he will still be needed to strengthen the brethren sent an angel to release him. Before then the Apostles had scattered and the church went into hiding and began to carry the gospel to other areas. This scenario is coming back soon after the lock down is lifted in a higher and more devastating way and many of the fathers that be in Christendom all over the world, who are seventy and above, and who have keep the faith for up to forty-five (45) to fifty (50) years and have been faithful to the Lord without breaking their holy vow unto the Lord, will be taken away by the Lord to rest. Some ministers of God or those that spend time in reading the Bible will quickly ask me, “why did Paul say to the church through his epistle to the Hebrews, “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is, but exhorting one another, and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching? “ Yes he said it and I will not be the type that will try to avoid any question, our gathering or assembling together like Paul said is to exhort which can be done through phone conversation or through other online conversations made readily available now. Otherwise some of us that have members that are not staying in the same city, State or Country, how do we counsel or exhort them? Remember, he did not say assemble together to pray, praise, worship, do thanksgiving, break bread (i.e. holy communion), etc, which are the things done when fellowshipping together. We can assemble, yet not fellowship together as you can see Paul presenting a better picture of this message in Eph. 5: 10-12, “proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. (And what is that thing acceptable unto the Lord). And have no fellowship with the unfruitful work of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret”. Did you see that? Paul was more explicit here for people that will abuse his clear message like it has always been abused from ages. And the Lord said through him don’t fellowship once you are walking in darkness. Go and see hatred, bitterness, bickering, deceit, immorality, fraudulent practices, idolatry, witch-crafting, rebellion against constituted authority, embezzlements, etc that fill each fellowship.
Apostle John echoed Paul’s statement when he said, “that which we seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us, and truly our fellowship is with the father, and with his son Jesus Christ. This then is the message which we have heard of him; and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanseth us from all sin”. (John 1: 3, 5-7) The condition of having fellowship with one another is that all must be walking in the light which is not just difficult but almost impossible, for the Blood of Jesus is readily available to cleanse us as long as we are walking in the light. Because we are supposed to break bread (Holy Communion) whenever we have such fellowships. Then Isaiah the prophet summed it up here; “In mine ears said the Lord of hosts, of a truth many houses (churches) shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant (i.e. empty without producing one soul that will be kingdom citizen or that will make it). Yea, ten acres (i.e. 60 (sixty) plots of land) of vineyard (church) shall yield one bath, and the seed of an homer shall yield an ephah (just imagine a church built on a 60 plots of land is like a stadium that can take up to one hundred thousand (100,000) people, but the Lord said it can only manage to produce a soul, so what is the need of those magnificent building and gathering or assembling there other than the selfish interest of the Pastors).
Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning (morning cry), that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine (spirit) inflame them! And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine are in their feasts, but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands (i.e. all our musical equipments and other activities of the church are more important than the word of God than what the Holy Spirit is saying and doing. Therefore my people (the church) are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge; and their honourable men are famished (respected and powerful ministers are hungry or starving for truth), and their multitude dried up with thirst (and the congregation are thirsty to hear the truth but it is not available). Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure, and their glory and their multitude and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend unto it (i.e. now hell that is meant for Satan and his demon spirits has over-bloated to take in human beings and not just that, but believers worldwide)”. Isa 5: 9-14. This is so painful and disheartening that large majority of believers including many ministers of the gospel will perish in hell for refusing to heed to the warnings of the Lord and His messengers sent to blow the trumpet.
ANTICHRIST SETS TO PERFECT OR JUDGE THE CHURCH HERE DURING HIS REIGN
I have talked about the man-child company and how they will be caught up to the throne of God or better still raptured to heaven, and who they are, now let me use the scripture to show how the antichrist will meet the church here, and how he will be the one that will speak the language the church will hear. When the Man-child is caught up to the throne of God in Rev. 12:5, John the divine showed how the woman (the church that gave birth to the child) will run into a forced separation or total lock down for 1260 days which is 3 ½ years by God’s own calendar to begin her own discipleship training “And the woman (i.e. the church on earth and the remaining disciple that didn’t endure unto the end and are left behind) fled into the wilderness (separation or hiding or underground) where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her with these (with the truth she refused to hear all these years a thousand two hundred and threescore days” Rev. 12:6). By the time she is being fed with the truth, the two witnesses of Rev. 11:3 (i.e. Elijah and Enoch, who were both taken away without seeing death and were preserved for this period will appear to guide the Jews who will be facing real judgment for rejecting the God –head). Believers are conversant with the coming of Elijah but not Enoch because it was not mentioned in the scripture so they say. But it is a lie because it is mentioned by Jude the brother of James the less in his short epistle; “And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these saying, behold the Lord cometh with ten thousand of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him” (Jude vs 14-15). If you are a good student of the Bible or prophecy, you will know that there was no where it was recorded that Enoch had done this before. But he is coming with the spirit and power of Moses to operate in Moses’ office just like John the Baptist before the first coming of Jesus came with the spirit and power of Elijah and operated in Elijah’s office to avoid Elijah appearing that time and being killed before fulfilling his calling. Moses did his work the time he came, finished it, and went home, therefore can’t come again, “for it is appointed unto man once to die, after that comes judgment”. Going back to the church and the antichrist, after three and half years of resting; the Man-child company will go to the other part of second heaven where Satan and his cohorts are based, accompanied by Michael and his angels to finish their last assignment by throwing Satan and his cohorts down to this earth before occupying that position to receive their rewards. This is why Rev. 12 said that they overcame Satan and as this is done, see what he will do, “and when the dragon (Satan) saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman (the church) which brought forth the Man-child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle that she might fly into the wilderness (i.e. separation, or lock down or underground and thereby ending open and public worship, so what will happen to the stadiums many have built and are still building calling it a place of worship? I will show you in the scripture when we reach there), into her place (that word “unto her place” signifies that the church was never in the place God prepared for her all these ages but have gone to conform or adapt to the world and can’t be nourished in the world and its system) where she is nourished for a time, (1 year), and times (2 years), and half a time (6 months), from the face of the serpent. (i.e. the first lock down will be one year, at the expiration of one year, it will be extended to two years, then after two years, there will be another extension for six months)” Rev. 12: 13-14).
Then as soon as the Man-child throws Satan and his cohorts down to the earth, he will enter into the antichrist like he did to Judas, who at that time will be lying in state from a gunshot wound received from a radical Islamic converted Christian who may have heard the preaching of the two witnesses. The gunshot will kill him truly, but Satan will give him life as soon as he enters into him and he will no more be human as he comes up to be Satan in human form.
“And I saw one of his heads (i.e. one of the renowned Emperors who is the antichrist) as it were wounded to death (he truly died from the injury before Satan gives him life), and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast” (Rev. 13:3). Then going back to the message he will remove the lock down, go straight and kill the two witnesses (Elijah and Enoch) who all this three and half years will be preaching and directing the Jews and the remnants of the church who are still ready to obey God, that the man in question is not the Messiah.
“And when they (i.e. the two witnesses) shall have finished their testimony (i.e. their mission on earth) the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit (the man of sin or cruel lord or king of fierce countenance understanding dark sentences) shall make war against them, and kill them” (Rev. 11:7). When he is done killing them, and lifting the lock down, he will go after both the Jews and the church. To the Jews, he will abolish temple worshipping of God and in the place of God’s sanctuary, he will cause his own statue to be erected in fulfillment of the prophecies of Daniel and of our Lord Jesus in Daniel Chapter 9 and Matt. 24,
“And he shall confirm the covenant (i.e. for peace and dividing of the land between Israel and Palestine, granting permission to the Jews to rebuild the temple and the worshipping of God) with many (United Nations Security Council) for one week (seven years), and in the midst of the week (in the middle of seven years i.e. after 3½ years) he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, (the sacrifice and worship unto God to end) and for overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate (i.e. the antichrist)” Daniel 9:27. This was how Daniel the prophet saw his own as revealed by the Lord to him. But the Lord Himself just made reference to Daniel’s vision and interpretation to confirm it was real and from Him as He said, “when ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)” Matt. 24:15. And then to the church, he will place a ban on worshipping of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and that to be replaced with worshipping him. Knowing the church and their resistance when they are in their right senses, and having been fully restored back to faith within the three and half (3 ½) years of lockdown and separation unto Him; will reject the antichrist and his orders. And he in turn will go after them and the Jews that will oppose what he is doing.
“And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood (i.e laws, decrees, etc, and a punishment for disobeying these orders) after the woman (church), that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth (i.e. the entire world) helped the woman (church), and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman (church) and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Rev. 12: 15-17). By now, doubting Thomases would have seen that the church will be met and dealt with by the antichrist just as he will also be punishing the Jews for rejecting the God head. Let me clarify this God Head: In the days of Samuel, Israel rejected God the Father who was judging them through Samuel saying they want a king. In the days of Jesus they chose Barabbas a robber and gave Jesus to be crucified. In the days of Stephen, they rejected the Holy Spirit that spoke through him and that completed the God-Head. The sins of the church are many but one is very treacherous unto the Lord and that is refusing to abide at home with their husband and going to commit whoredom or immorality or fornication with the world and its system. This is done by the church that the Lord died for, used His blood to redeem or called her out of the world to worship him in spirit and in truth, then she returned back to the world to conform or adapt to the world and its system and devising her own way of reaching out to God when the indignation of the Lord is upon her, and thinking that God cannot see or do anything because she is bearing the name of the Lord. She continued to mingle with traditions of men that transgress the word of God. They are not ready to hear the voice of the prophets God has been sending to warn them. Part of the laws the antichrist will introduce that will cause large majority of believers worldwide to lose their faith finally and join the camp of the antichrist is the “mark”. This “mark” has been so much misinterpreted and many say if they happen to be here, they will never receive it, and funny enough that is “money”. He will introduce through UN a global currency that will be used by every soul upon the face of the earth. That currency will have his image (picture), the name of the confederated nations of Europe which he will take the world dominance from (i.e. United States of Europe or Europe League Nation – 666) and will bear the trademark of Europe Common Market (i.e. another 666). He will through the Vatican city unify the entire Christian organizations under one name and that is United Church of Christ (666) with a logo and 666 emblem for identification like the face mask the world is wearing now for protection from Covid-19. This will be headed by the Pope and to worship him (i.e. the antichrist). This is what Pentecostalism will reject but when many see that without the money bearing 666, they can neither buy nor sell in essence can’t eat, and yet the government agencies or task force are after arresting and torturing them unto death, they will give up their faith and start betraying their brethren by leading those soldiers to where these brethren are hiding in bushes, villages, caves, etc. (Ref. Rev. 13:15-18. The “forehead” mentioned is talking about one conceiving in your mind to receive the money, so whether with left hand or mouth, once conceived in your mind to receive it, you are in at once).
My people the church will go through unimaginable horror that nobody will want to be left behind to witness this. Even as I am writing these things, I am already having ghost pimples on me remembering how ISIS and other terrorist organizations in the world dis-member Christians or soldiers when they are caught. This is a tip of iceberg about what those believers who hold on to the truth will go through during the reign of the antichrist. Look another painful and frustrating message to the church. “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High”. (Dan 7: 25). And then see Rev. 13.
“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all the kindred and tongues, and nations”. (Rev. 13:7). I quoted these two scriptures from the prophets and Grace to show that despite all the horrors the church will go through during this period, the antichrist will still overcome them by killing them. And so they will pay the price of death with their own blood unlike the Man-child that will use the “Blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony” to overcome. It is the overcomers that will inherit all things, but as for those that Satan will overcome and who will pay with their blood before making it to heaven, I don’t know what their own reward will be.
In conclusion, I mentioned that part of the Man-child company who will be the army of God that will soon appear to start preaching the gospel of the kingdom for forty days and forty nights, went into hiding or separation in April 1990. A renowned prophet of God had prophesied in October 1986 that the true church will be forced into hiding or separation forty-two (42) months from that time. And I am aware that this manifested globally in April 1990 but many did not know because it is a spiritual thing. By November of the same 1986, a renowned Apostle/Prophet of God S. G. Elton who was the father of Pentecostalism in Nigeria that trained many of these renowned men of God in Nigeria and lived in Ilesha, went to Government Technical College in Enugu on the invitation of Grace of God Mission to find according to him the leaders of this army. S. G. Elton came to Nigeria in 1936 through a prophecy in 1934 to raise the church in Nigeria and find the people God will use this end time. He announced that his ministry finished in 1984 but he pleaded with the Lord to give him two years to strengthen the brethren before going home (i.e. going to be with the Lord) and that is what he is finally fulfilling. He said further that maybe about five of you in this congregation will hear the voice of the Lord through his teachings and separate yourself unto Him, and God will take it from there. After other messages, he said he has finished his mission on earth and will be going back to Ilesha to rest and wait on the Lord to take him home. Then on the 14th of January, 1987, he slept quietly in the Lord. This church that went underground or spiritual since April 1990, have stayed in hiding unknown to the church the world is conversant with for thirty (30) years and within the next ten (10) years she would have stayed for forty (40) years making it a generation. And God does things in dispensations and generations, and I am having the feeling that we must look out for this remaining ten (10) years before this generation comes to an end for maybe the beginning and the fulfillment of most of the things.
I have talked about here or any other major move of God that will be global. Jesus began His ministry when He was thirty (30) years and at (33) He finished and went home. The army of God coming out of their hide outs or wilderness as immortal beings to call out the multitudes that are fully ripe for harvest may come up at their thirty three (33) years of hiding having received the liquid fire to immortalize them. Only God can tell how it will go. But let us be prepared.
The question now is, “for what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and lose his life”. Having seen these clear messages from all corners (i.e. the law, the prophets and Grace (three witnesses), what manner of persons are we supposed to be? Finally don’t accept this message and don’t condemn it. Just take your Bible and go before the Lord with fasting and prayers, ask Him, “Lord are you the one speaking? Is this what you want me to do?” And don’t leave His presence until He speaks to you even if it takes one month to hear from Him and get an answer. God bless you all as you take wise decision not to be left behind.
