BROTHERHOOD OF THE CROSS AND STAR
First Bible Lesson: Matthew 19:4
“And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female.”
Second Bible Lesson: John 11:51-52
“And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.”
Golden Text: Acts 10:13-15
“And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. But Peter said, Not so, Lord: for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean. And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.”
On reading the passages, some wise men have been contemplating what the Father is going to preach about, no other person can preach on those texts. They have been thinking what the Father will preach about from the first lesson. But I want you to listen attentively to what I am going to reveal to you. You will hear what you have never heard, you will see what you have never seen. The world will know today what they never knew before.
The Holy Spirit Leads Men To The Accurate Wisdom Of The Truth
What did the Lord Jesus Christ tell you? He said” I have yet many things to say unto you but you cannot bear them now. Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth is come, He will guide you into all truth. (John 16:13) Why then should you question about what will be preached to you?
There is, therefore, no wise man in the world. The whites, the blacks and the coloured are not wise, they are blind, deaf and dumb. The issue before us is about simple addition as one starts learning from the elementary class. The scriptures have advised that whosoever thinks himself wise, let him be a fool that he may be wise. Because the wisdom of the world is foolishness before God. (1 Cor 3:18-19). I have one lesson to draw from each of the texts respectively. And so listen attentively. I know you all are listening. Focus your gaze on me. From your focus, your sickness, pains, problems, worries, difficulties are taken away. I do not refer to the gospel of yesterday or to any other gospel. This gospel is quite distinct and unique. It will be circulated to the disputers of the world, the great linguist, the great dialecticians, the foolish, the ignorant, the dull, the inquisitors and to all others.
The Commencement Of Brotherhood
You have heard the text of our first lesson. I want to commence from the creation. At the beginning of this world, did God not create one male and one female? (Gen 1:27) Can you argue against this statement? After creating one male and one female, have you heard, have you been told that He has created another woman? Who created both of them male and female? Is it not the Father? Was it Adam who begot Eve? Was it Eve who delivered Adam? Who were two of them? Were they not Brotherhood. Were they not brothers and sisters? Were they not the children of God? Argue; if both of them were not children of God, is it because God decreed that man should go into the world to be fruitful, to multiply and to replenish the earth that He has made a mistake? No matter how numerous we may be, are we not the children of God? Even if we are a mixture of evil and good are we not children of God or Brotherhood? What are you struggling for as children? Why is there some in-fighting in your midst?
Both Whites And Blacks Are Descendants Of Adam
There is time for foolishness, time of ignorance is also there, but is this the time of foolishness? When you argue that you are white or black, who was your father and who was your grandfather? Were they not the children of Adam. Who was your grandmother? Was she not Eve? When you beget many children, and they in turn beget many children also, and your grandchildren beget other children and your great grandchildren beget other children, as it were, does it mean that you and all of them are not brothers,and children of God?
How Division Set In
There is no doubt that Adam and Eve committed a mistake. (Gen 3:10). There is also no doubt that Cain committed a mistake. (Gen 4:8). Abraham begot two children, Ishmael and Isaac. (Gen 17:18-19). As Haggar, the mother of Ishmael, hailed from Egypt, she was not regarded as an indigene, that was another mistake. Again, there was a little mistake in the relationship between Esau and his brother Jacob. (Gen 27:41) There was further a little mistake between Jacob and his twelve children, (Gen 37:11) the patriarchs. These are the events which bring about confusion in the world. It was said that since Haggar hailed from Egypt, the Egyptians had no share in the glory of God, are Egyptians not children of God?
It is commonly argued that since Esau had given over his birthright to Jacob for a spoonful of red pottage, he was no more a child of promise, whose child was he? Some argue that since Adam and Eve had fallen from the grace of God they were no longer children of God, whose children were they? Mention their father. It is also argued that Cain, by killing his biological brother, was no longer a child of God, whose child was he? Upon all these events of mistakes, the characters concerned were still children of God. Even it is argued that since Reuben had defiled his father’s bed and was cursed he was not a child of God. (Gen 35:22) Jacob also cursed his other children, and the curses continued to the extent that he lacked words to continue to curse. Such curses have continued since then. (Gen 49:3-7) This explains the cause of the disintegration and separation of the world, people are so confused that you find them ganging up, thus division sets in.
Disintegration Of The World
You have heard the text of the second lesson. It is said that Jesus should die for that nation, and not for that nation only but also that he should gather together in one, the children of God that were scattered abroad. Can you realize now why our Lord Jesus Christ had to come? The reason is that there are many cleavages in the world. Adam and Eve erred, and derailed from the path of rectitude. The same thing goes with all the inhabitants of the world. They are torn asunder. The world had become antagonistic society constantly at war with itself. War sets in because people claim they came from one community or the other. Discrimination also sets in and people condemn others and arrogate to themselves positions superior to others. That is why the world disintegrates. This explains the principal purpose for which our Lord Jesus Christ came, to die and shed His precious blood to reconcile man to God. So that the sin of Adam, Eve, Cain, Abraham, Esau, Jacob and those who were regarded as outcasts may be remitted, and so that there would also be no division among the various peoples of the world. He did not die for the righteous. He died for sinners of all descriptions. That it may be fulfilled with that nominated in the scriptures that “it shall come to pass that in the place where it was said unto them ye are not my people, there shall they be called, the children of the living God. And those who were not beloved, will be called the beloved children of God”. (Hos 1:10 & Rom 9:26) Have you not realised the manifestation of that prediction? It does not serve any useful purpose to continue to make the distinction that one is white and the other is black; or that one is the son of God or that one is a white man, because He Himself has brought about the unification of all the people of the world. So human beings, trees, animals, water, fishes, birds are all children of God.
We All Are Descendants Of Adam
You are called Brotherhood, because you are a son of Adam and Eve, and we all are children of God. You are called brother or sister because you are a child of Adam, and also a child of Eve. No matter the number of worlds and the population of each of the number of worlds, all the inhabitants are the children of Adam and Eve. Man should not persist in his ignorance.
It is said for as by one man’s disobedience, many, even those who did not disobey, were made sinners, so also by the obedience of one shall many, even those who do not obey, be made righteous. (Rom 5:19) That chapter, therefore, had been closed, because the sin of Adam and Eve was abrogated by our Lord Jesus the Christ and Mary the Virgin. Therefore, we all in the world are, once again, Brotherhood, and the children of God. There is neither division nor segregation in the whole world even till eternity.
An Eye Opener
This gospel is imparted to you because even you in Brotherhood continue to complain that you are the only Brotherhood in your family, or that you are the only Brotherhood in your village or that you are the only Brotherhood in your state. Which means that you are still ignorant in the oneness of the world. So this gospel will serve to remove the wax from your ears, scales from your eyes, and stones from the walls of your heart, and brighten your intellect and mind. That is why I set this gospel aside for today to deal deeply in; so that you may know that all those who cause division still have a gloomy outlook. Today the scales will be taken off your eyes.
Early Descendants Of Adam
If you refer to Enoch, he was the son of Adam and Eve. If you refer to Noah, he was also the son of Adam and Eve. If you talk about Melchizedek, he was also the son of Adam and Eve. Also talk about Elijah, he was their son. John the Baptist and Jesus, the Christ, were their children. Therefore, we all present here, and those yet to come and those yet unborn are also the children of Adam and Eve, and ipso facto, children of God. Whether, therefore, you are white, black or coloured, you are a child to Adam and Eve. Whether you are a thief or a liar or a fornicator, or necromancer you are a child of Adam. Whether you are poor, or sickly or leprous, or blind as far as you are a human being, you are a child of Adam and Eve. So, it was the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ which restored peace to the world. That was the last covenant to gather together the scattered children of God throughout the world. It is, therefore, our duty to unite the scattered peoples; and this is the only theme of your sermon from now on. Do not preach any other gospel but tell people about Brotherhood, that the inhabitants of the world are one and that there is no division between them for there is neither Jew, nor Greek, or white or black, or man or woman. I intend that this gospel should, once and for all, expel from your minds any divisive, any discriminatory and segregative tendencies.
Why I order that the gospel should be written and preserved, is that you will not be able to arrange the sub-themes of the gospel, but since it has been arranged in a document, it is easy to give to any person who argues, to read. After reading, ask him if he has any more questions to ask. If a white man argues with you, ask him whether his father was not Adam? If a black man argues that he is not white but black, ask him after reading the document if his father was not Adam. The Israelites boasted that the only true God belongs to them and that all others have no God, ask them if they are not the children of Adam. Is Mohammed not a child of Adam? Is Bab or Baha’u’llah not a child of Adam? Were John Wesley, Martin Luther and many other religionists not children of Adam? All things mentioned and others not mentioned whether they are idols or preparations of concoction, or diabology, or water, or tree, or wind are all children of Adam. Will you continue in your ignorance? Has our Lord Jesus, the Christ, not told you that when the Comforter even the Spirit of Truth will come, He will lead you unto the accurate wisdom of the Truth. Have you not realised that wisdom of Truth? (John 16:13)
The Tendency To Divide And Rule
It is said a kingdom that is divided against itself is brought to desolation, and any house that is divided against itself cannot stand, (Mark 3:25) it is bound to fall. To whom does that statement refer? Who is this Kingdom? Are you not the Kingdom? Are you not divided? Who is the house? Are you not the house? Are you not divided and have you not realised the desolation plaguing you? The whites claim to be the ‘be-all’ and ‘end-all’. Are things good with them? The Moslems claim to be all and all. Today are things good with them? The Christians claim to occupy the first position, but are things good with them? The Israelites claim they are the only people who know God and that all others are so small and appear incognito, how beneficial is the claim to them?
Thieves and Harlots Are Children Of God
If you have never travelled, you will not know that there are other cities. You will feel that your city is the only one in the world. If you live only in one city, you will always think that you are the only person existing and that God does not exist in any other place. But when you travel far, you will realise that God is working wonders in other places to the extent that you forget about your home country. A great many people feel that a thief has no God; but if you see how a thief thanks his God and how he bows down to worship him, you will be petrified. You will ask whether thieves also know God. God is his Father. Some others think that male and female prostitutes have no God, but who tells you that they do not know God, if they do not know God, who knows? They know God more than any other person. When the Israelites entered into the city of Jericho, who saved the spies apart from the harlot, Ahab? Rahab as we are told was a harlot. (Josh 2 & Heb 11:31) Later on it was written that she was a notorious harlot. Was she not the person who hid the spies in her house, maintained and secured them when the Philistines pursued to kill them? Were there no Pastors or Bishops in Jericho? But did they show that kind gesture to the spies? But that was a prostitute catering for the people of God. The name “prostitute” means and refers to a person who does not know God, and that is why their children are referred to as bastards, since they have no fathers. What is referred to as satan does not exist, but simply means a person who always argues and does not accept to know and worship God, and who does not know his father. A pagan is a person who does not believe. Whatever name you give to people simply refers to unbelievers, those who do not take cognizance of their father.
Man Was Predestined To Rule
But quite fortunately or unfortunately, all the inhabitants of the world do not know that the first covenant had been revoked and that our Lord Jesus Christ had removed the veil and that all inhabitants of the world have been gathered together, and that division, segregation or discrimination is not cherished by God. Since man was predestined to rule, it is man who rules. That is why the whole world has been brought together to remain as an indivisible whole, henceforth, there is no more division among the people. Even if somebody claims to be from heaven or hell or satan, go and enlighten him and teach him to know that all the inhabitants of the world are children of God and, ipso facto, Brotherhood.
Nothing Created By God Is Common Or Unclean
It is said on the side of the gospel, they are enemies but for election, they are elected for the sake of their fathers. That was why our Lord Jesus Christ had shed His precious blood to blot out and remit all the sins committed before, during and after his resurrection and there is no more imputing of sins on any person. Now no sin will ever disqualify you as a child of God. No person is disqualified, and, ad infinitum, we are all children of God. This explains why when our Lord Jesus had resurrected, He told Peter “Rise up, kill and eat.” (Acts 10:13) The vision he saw, revealed to him that everything had been made pure. So from Adam to Cain to Abraham and indeed the whole world is occupied by one person. Peter thought as people think today that the four-footed creature he saw was an animal, it was not an animal but a human being. The symbolism of the vision is that all the inhabitants of the world are clean, and that there is nothing created by God which is common or unclean.
But Peter argued saying, “Not so Lord for I have never eaten anything which is common or unclean.” But he was reordered to kill and eat because what God has cleansed he should not call common or unclean. Who tells you that any person is unclean? Every person is clean and pure, which implies that every person in the world is clean. When a man is a farmer or a necromancer or a thief, he is a child of God because He had promised that within a twinkle of an eye, He will change us. (1 Cor 15:51-52) The change resides with Him. What then is your business? Even if somebody persists in his sinfulness, will his commitment prevent him from being a child of God? Do you want to argue that when the prodigal son returned to the father, he never committed sins again? Did that alone prevent his father from accepting him?
So Brethren, I do not want to overload you. The first lesson will now be read.
First Bible Lesson: Matthew 19:4
“And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female.”
Brethren, have you heard that? How many persons are in this hall. Do you not see only men and women? Who is the woman? Is she not Eve? Who is the Man? Is he not Adam? Who was the Father of Adam and Eve? God was their Father. As you stand or sit there who is your father? God is your Father. He is the Father of us all including fishes in water, all the animals in the field, all the birds in the air. He is also the Father to death and hades. He also fathers all angels and all spirits. Therefore, there is no division. This explains why when John the Divine fell at the feet of the angel to worship him, the angel said to him “See thou do it not for I am your fellow servant and your brother,” but “worship God.” (Rev 19:10)
You remember the statement made by our Lord Jesus Christ, verily, verily I say unto you whoever believes in me the works that I do will he do also, and greater works than this will he do because I go back to my Father. (John 14:12) Which work is greater work than hanging on the cross? The greater work is simply “Love ye one another.” What is the significance of love ye one another? It symbolizes “oneness,” it implies that all the inhabitants of the world are one. This fact has been stamped with a seal, and whether you like to ascend or to descend, even if you deny me or you claim you do not know me or that you are not a Brotherhood, you are only wasting time because you are Brotherhood.
Love The Bond Of Fellowship
Why is God referred to as the Omnipotent, the Omnipresent, and the Omniscient? It is because of his magnanimous love. Why was the Christ so universal. It was because of that same virtue of love. Why did he have to introduce the injunction “love ye one another even also as I love you?” (John 15:12) It is because it is through the vehicle of love that the people of the world might be gathered together. Do you not realise that if we reciprocate God’s love, we all will be linked together as a chain? Love will then become the bond of fellowship amongst us. Even as I am speaking the Father has completed His work. I love every person. Whether you are a Moslem, I have to love you. Whether you belong to Bahai Faith, or you are a necromancer, or an idol worshipper, or you belong to no church denomination, or you are human or animal, I continue to love you. You can now realise the chain which links us together. It is love that magnetizes all of us together. Because He says, “This is the new covenant that I will enter into with them in those days; I will print my laws into their minds and write them into their hearts. And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother saying know the Lord, for all shall know me from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful unto their unrighteousness and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. (Heb 8:11-12) That means that God will never remember the sins of the people of the world. God does not remember any person’s sins because that blood of our Lord Jesus Christ has cleansed them all. Now that you are discriminating, it is the height of folly, however the Holy Spirit has come to remove the scales from your eyes that you may see your way through.
Our Lord Jesus Christ Propitiates Our Sins
Sometimes some people are tempted to believing that God loves the blacks more than the whites. Who are the whites and who are the blacks? Others argue that He loves the whites more than the blacks. Who are those whites and who are the blacks? Is God dual? Rather He is love. His love is universal. If you hate any person, it means you are not with God. And our Lord Jesus Christ says whosoever is not with me is against me and whosoever does not gather with me scatters abroad. (Matt 12:30) I, therefore, see that you all in the world recklessly resist God.
What our Lord Jesus Christ was commissioned to do was to shed His blood, and, indeed, He had shed His precious blood but to make the whole world one is really an up-hill task. If you were indebted to somebody in London and you could not defray the debt and you were taken to court, and a prison term imposed on you, and for that reason you went to Africa, if some other person should pay the debt for you and, thereafter, you are advised to go back to London, you would be very reluctant to go back to London. This is exactly what happens in the world, because the sins committed by the people of the world have so discouraged them that they refuse to go back to God. But I advise: “Return to the house, thou wanderer; for the Father is looking for you.” The problems and difficulties plaguing you do not come from God but from you and your ignorance and foolishness. God does not impute sins on any person and He does not sow the seeds of division among the whites or the blacks, nor between the men and the women, nor with the children and adult. But you sow the seeds of discord because of your foolishness.
The Unification Of The World By The Holy Spirit
He preserved this glory unto Himself. Is what you realise not the glory of the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit has come to gather all the children of God together. He has already accomplished this; but what remains now is for you to go and testify about it. After circulating the book to be compiled from this gospel to all parts of the world, you will then go to witness for the work of the Holy Spirit. At that time the foolishness will stop because we are all one. Only one currency will be used throughout the world, there will be no visa and passport, indeed all gaps will be bridged by the Holy Spirit. There will be no division between the Jews and the Greeks, between the Nigerians and the Britons.
Free Contact Between The Whites And The Blacks
Now millions of Europeans and Americans intend to come to Africa and millions of Africans want to migrate to Europe and America. Why do you intend to go since you claim that you are not white and that you have no relationship with whites? God has not created any boundaries for us. He says we can travel freely to any country without any hinderance. The whole world is one and there is no division. Therefore, sow no divisive tendencies. Any person who sows the seeds of division has killed our Lord Jesus Christ the second time. But can you cope with God’s Plan? What God has joined together, you want to put asunder. There is no way you can do that.
Men Are All Alone
A great many of us here, in our earlier incarnation, were born in India, but later, the Father transferred you to Nigeria. In that incarnation you were an Indian, but since there was an arduous task to be done in Africa, you were transferred to Africa and so you continue to migrate in your reincarnation from one country to the other. That is why Jehovah God and His Christ are laughing at you seeing that you are very foolish.
This divisive tendency is what brings tribulation, sickness, poverty to you. In order to escape the wrath we all have to practise this gospel. Do not preach any other gospel except that we all are one. Whatever name of church a man answers to, let him answer but we are all one and we are all brothers. Even the other person who does not belong to any church denomination, is your brother. Even if you call yourself a pagan, you are still a brother, whether you worship a tree, you are still a brother, eat what you like, you are a brother. If you like to worship a tree, worship, because that tree is Brotherhood. The position is that we are all Brotherhood and ipso facto children of God.
God Regretted Having Created Man And Decided To Destroy The World
I have told you that Enoch was commissioned for a divine inspection of what he saw to God. (Gen 5:22-24) After receiving the report God regretted to have created man, because the world was very sinful and not worth anything. Since He regretted having created man, He decided to destroy the world as man had waxed worse in sin.
Mission of Noah
Noah came to salvage the world from its collapse. This is why he preached for 120 years and people paid deaf ears to him until he and his household went into the ark. (Gen 6:18) Without Noah and members of his family, would the world be in existence?
Mission of Melchizedek
Melchizedek (Gen 14:18) came to plead for pardon and to intercede for the sins of the world, and through his intercession man was reconciled to God and so God gave the sign of a rainbow that He would no longer destroy the world through flood water. As He remembers the rainbow sign, at any time He intended to destroy the world He would remind Himself of His action and would stay the execution. But when you see the rainbow you consider it is caused by Beelzebub, mermaid or ghost.
Mission Of Moses and Elijah
Moses came to deliver the children of Israel from bondage in Egypt. (Exodus 3:5-8). Elijah came (1 Kings 18:17) to retaliate and to punish those who did not comply to the commandments: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me: Thou shalt not steal; Thou shalt not kill,” (Exodus 20:3-17). Those who did not comply with the commandments were punished.
John And The Lord Jesus Christ
John the Baptist was a forerunner to turn the hearts of the fathers unto the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just and to make ready a people for the Lord so they might believe in the Messiah who was to come. (Luke 1:17) The death as well as the shedding of the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ was significantly:
1.to redeem the sinful world,
2.to blot out all the transgressions of the world,
3.to amalgamate the different sections of the world and
4.to unite all the scattered children of God that they will forever remain as one indivisible whole.
The blood of the Lord Jesus Christ signifies unity. Remember that hitherto Pilate the governor and Herod the king were always at daggers-drawn, but were reconciled on the day of the crucifixion. (Luke 23:12) That unity did not end with Pilate but also, as can be seen in the world today, unite the other people of the world. Observe Nigeria, Africa and the entire world and the oneness of the world as well as other things because everything is Brotherhood.
This explains why our Lord Jesus said let not your heart be troubled, you believe in God believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many mansions, if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself, that wherever I am, there you may be also. (John 14:1-3) Where is our Lord Jesus Christ? He is with God. And where are you? You are also with God. You are neither a child of perdition nor a bastard. There is no child of perdition, neither is there any bastard. Because the condition was that without the shedding of blood there will never be the remission of sins. The various church denominations, the different religions in the world and the many institutions are the many mansions referred to by the Lord Jesus Christ. In spite of this, the Holy Spirit has taught that we are all one. Do not therefore, sow the seed of discrimination, because there is no more division, forever and ever. The blood shed by our Lord Jesus Christ has reconciled man to God and has brought about the unification of the divided people of the world. If all the sins of the world were remitted then every person would have been reconciled to God. Once the precious blood is shed then sins would be remitted and all sinners reconciled to God, and all children of God would be one. But now that you are still segregating, that you are a Moslem or a Christian, it is an indication that you do not know yourself. But it was rightly predicted by the Lord Jesus Christ that when He the Comforter would come, He will lead you to the accurate wisdom of the truth. (John 15:26) Have you not heard about the Comforter? Were you the one who shed the precious blood? Were you the one who was hanged on the Calvary tree? Were you the one to be glorified?
As I do not want to take you further than this, the second lesson will now be read. Listen attentively. Can you not feel your pulses now, how blood is circulating in your body, how sicknesses are being dispelled from your body. Today you will return to your houses devoid of all sicknesses and encumbrances. It is division which has incurred to man poverty, sickness, death, doubt and faithlessness.
Second Bible Lesson: John 11:51-52
“And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation: And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.”
The Chief Assignment Of The Lord Jesus Christ
Brethren, have you heard what is read unto you? Till now many people do not know why our Lord Jesus Christ had to come and realise His mission on earth. This also explains why He had to accomplish a very short assignment for a period of 33 years. For even if He had lived longer than 33 years, and did not shed His precious Blood, He would not have accomplished His assignment to mankind. That is why after His resurrection, He commissioned His disciples saying, “Go you into all the world and make all nations my disciples.” (Matt 28:19 & Mark 16:15). In every pronouncement there must be a punctuation, since it was said of Him that He will speak in parables, for without parables will He not speak. (Matt 13:34-35). But because people did not understand His parables that was why He said, “But the Comforter who is also the Holy Ghost whom the Father will send in my Name, He shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrances, whatsoever I have said unto you.” (John 14:26). That is principally the work of the Holy Spirit which is quite specific and quite distinct to Himself.
Only The Same God Works In All His Creations
The fact that you are a hunter, or a footballer or a gambler, or a farmer, or a trust-worthy fellow, this condition alone cannot prevent you from being a Brotherhood. There is only one spirit but diversities of gifts. (1 Cor 12:4). to one is given to one direction and to another is given to another direction, but it is the same God who works all in all, in trees and in animals. He rules over all and in all His creations. As I am telling you now, whether or not you like to believe, He has already accomplished His work on earth. But this is only for your information.
The Changing Position Of Women
You can now notice that there are no divisions or segregation in Europe and Americas. The whites who in the past capitalized on segregative tendencies against the blacks, have now thrown in their towel. The gap is now bridged. Those who preached the gospel of “return to your own country” are no more disposed to doing so, because all have now realised that they all are Brotherhood since there are no differences between the various creations of God. Even within Africa itself there were certain divisive tendencies among the people. Female education was not even regarded by the people. They maintained that women education amounted to waste of time and the Africans had no regard for the women. But realise the irony of fate that now women have been appointed into very important positions in the government.
Some women have been elected presidents, some prime ministers, some commissioners and others governors. Do you know how this is brought about?
The Equality Of Man
In the past no person had any regard for the black man, but go to see what happens today in Europe and America and other places, you will find black people occupying high positions of responsibility. The whites have now realised the importance of the black man, it was revealed to them before now. Notice from the position of the black man in the world affairs that the saying that whatever is done to the Israelites must also be done to the Gentiles is not fulfilled. You can come as a white, but you still do the assignment predestinated for you. You can come as a black and do your assigned duty. So He has come out as a black man, to show that there is only one God who works in all. His love is monolithic and equal to all creations.
The Holy Spirit Enthroned
The conquest over principalities and powers symbolizes the spiritual revolution over traditions, cultures and customs which hitherto caused a lot of confusion among the peoples of the world. This explains why you would go out to inform the people of the world that such tendencies no longer exist and that all men in the world, be they white or black, are the same and equal. Right now there is neither man nor woman, neither child nor an adult, neither white nor black but our Lord Jesus Christ is all and in all.
God has never revealed Himself to all the inhabitants of the world in one day and at the same time. He reveals to people one after the other. As it has been revealed to you, it is your duty to go forth and preach to those who are not as fortunate as yourself. Preach no more division and segregation. Do not mention in the course of your sermon that some people are not Brotherhood and that some are not children of God, and that Moslems are not children of God, but rather preach to them that all human beings are brothers whether they be Moslems or Christians, Jews or Buddhists, or Hindus or Bahais, or necromancers or what have you. Go forth and preach to them and demonstrate the love of God to all of them practically in order to win all to the Holy Spirit. That also has been your assigned duty.
Love One Another
Do not base your assignment on the colour of the body, or on name, or on place but know that we are all one through the spirit, we are all brethren, but let us love one another. Remember that God created Adam and Eve and we all are the offspring of Adam and Eve, therefore we are all one. No matter how numerous we may be, in any world and in any generations, we all, together with the angels and spirits, are one in God. We should therefore, love ourselves.
No matter how evil one may be, let him remember the precious Blood shed by our Lord Jesus the Christ. He shed his precious blood for us that our sins may be remitted, that sins may not be imputed unto any persons and that all may be truly repentant.
For this he has given us an injunction that we should love one another and if we love Him that expression of love will cover our multitude of sins, it swallows up division and segregation and all those things which do not give glory to God.
The Unity Of The Churches
When it is said that all churches are one, it is not implied that all church denominations will converge at one place, but it is implied that if we all are children of God, we shall be only one church. To say that the whole world is one, does not imply that all the inhabitants of the world will become black or white or coloured but it implies that once we realise that we are children of God and we love one another, and regard ourselves as brethren, it means we are but one. The first National Anthem in Nigeria was very significant, it was not only for Nigeria but for the entire world. It said: “Though tribes and tongue may differ, in Brotherhood we stand”. So from today, do not regard yourself as anything different from others for whatever you call and make yourself, that does not preclude you from being a Brotherhood. One is given to one direction others are given to various other directions.
From today onward, the bulk of this gospel will form the theme of your preaching. Do not preach on other thing than that all the inhabitants of the world are one, and that they should not hate any person, that they should not sow the seed of division whether they be white or black, and that they should see themselves and regard themselves as brethren. This is the duty of the Holy Spirit and the most onerous work. That is why it is said that the end will not come until this gospel is preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations before the end comes. (Matt. 24:14)
Preach From Known To The Unknown
Preach neither any city nor any church denominations, nor any society, nor any other thing but preach Brotherhood and tell the people that we are all children of God, preach the gospel that our Lord Jesus Christ died that the scattered children of God throughout the whole world might be gathered in love, that man should not be wolf to man, that one should not bring evil against the other, and that no matter how numerous we may be, whether we be men, or angels or spirits we are but one. Trees, leaves, water, men, or angels or spirits we are but one. Trees, leaves, water are all Brotherhood, but they are like angels. To which angels has God said at any time, you are my son, this day have I begotten you. (Heb 1:5). But you are a child of God, and they are angels. Do not hate any person for the reason of his worshipping a tree, because when his eyes will be opened he will know himself.
Preach Love And Unity
This explains more when the various church denominations invite the Father, He does not reject any of them but responds to all their invitations irrespective of the fact that they light candle and burn incense, but I give them money; if they want the gospel, I give it to them, but I do not condemn them because they are all Brotherhood and they know this for sure. If you worship a tree, that tree was created by God; you will therefore, through the worship of the tree, move to the worship of God because the veil of Moses is still covering your eyes. Now that a tree is your God and Leader, when the scale falls out of your eyes, you will know what you ought to have done, though still you are Brotherhood. No person starts to count his numerals from one or two or three but from Zero “O”. If you start with zero, you will end well. If you do not worship a man, how will you worship God? So things are not what they seem. Do not advise somebody to withdraw from his church denomination and enroll into Brotherhood. If you do that you will cause confusion. Who are members of church denominations? They are the children of God. Who are the moslems? They are also the children of God. Who are the necromancers? They are the children of God. All creations are children of God but advise them to fulfill the injunction of loving one another and should not engage in animosity, or commission of sin.
Do Not Preach Division
Do not advise any person to deny his citizenship of Nigeria or of Ghana; or to deny his being white or black because all are Brotherhood, and, ipso facto, children of God. But whatever we may be, we should regard every person equally, realising that all are Brotherhood, and we should love one another. When you are among the necromancers love them, and tell them that they are children of God, that they should not hate, as it is time that every person has to serve God, and that no person should sin. If you find yourself with hoteliers love them, instruct them not to sin, be kind to them. Today many church denominations have invited me, and I have sent money to them irrespective of what purpose they will put the money to. Whether they know me or not, one thing is certain and that is they are Brotherhood, but it is your work that manifests this belief, that they are all Brotherhood.
Associate With All And Sundry
In the community you hail from, in the family you belong, in the State you come from, every person is Brotherhood, but you have to reveal Brotherhood to them, to manifest the tenets of Brotherhood to them. Do not fight against the authority of your community. If they engage in environmental sanitation, you refuse to participate, neither do you associate with the inspiration of the people but every time showing yourself as Brotherhood. What sort of Brotherhood are you? Does it mean that if you are Brotherhood, they are not Brotherhood? Show them the correct perspective of Brotherhood.
Can you notice the motive of both the Christians and the Moslems, some claim to be Moslems and yet they kill the Christians, others profess to be Christians, yet they kill the Moslems. Is it the function of Moslems or Christians to kill? Is it the practice of Brotherhood or is that the injunction to love one another?
You profess to be a necromancer of a member of a secret society but you murder Christians in cold blood because they are neither necromancer nor members of secret society. You are a Christian and you kill a necromancer because he is not a Christian. Who is a Christian, and who is a necromancer? Since the commencement of the so-called Holy War how does the world benefit from it? The Christians kill the Moslems and Moslems kill Christians, can you not realise the end – result of the war? Our Lord Jesus Christ had reconciled the inhabitants of the world through his death. We therefore have no problems. Our problems emanate from our ignorance. We have to call a halt to such foolishness come 2000 AD. You profess to belong to the best church but do you show good example to others? You fight them, you fornicate and tell lies. How good are you? Our golden text will now be read.
Golden Text: Acts 10:13-15
“And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean. And the voice spake unto him again the second time, what God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.”
God’s Action To Disgrace The Proud
Have you heard that? God has cleansed all the inhabitants of the world through the Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore it is erroneous to refer to some as satanic, others as evildoers, others as necromancers. You condemn one church or the other, and one society or the other. But God has disgraced you in that the man you refer to as a necromancer and society man is a governor over you, where will you run to. You profess to be a Christian; a real Christian, but the evil man is your governor, where will you vanish to. In your village you are an elder, or pastor, or bishop, you have founded a church denomination, but unfortunately, the village head is a murderer, he is a thief and commits all sorts of sin, where else will you go to escape the village head? See how God can disgrace you. You pronounce that wizards and mermaids should be consumed with fire, and those who do not attend your church denomination should be consumed with fire because your church denomination is the best. But the Chief Judge and the other judges are society men and do not go to church neither do they believe in God, but suddenly two church denominations have a case which is taken before the Judge, who unavoidably will decide the case.
Do Not Condemn, For All Human Beings Are Brothers
Without the love of God what would you have been? But for the fact that God propitiates on your behalf where would you be? From the same family can be found members of different church denominations but when anything happens in the family you will sink your religious differences and pursue the matter. Unfortunately the population of the Christians is in the minority. The Christians do not occupy positions of eminence in the world; they are always at the periphery of things. But found in prominent positions are sinners, necromancers, murderers, society men, Moslems, to pilot the affairs of the world. The Christians are relegated to the background, they have neither wisdom, nor money. You are always in the opposition and I want to tell you that any kingdom that is opposing itself is brought to desolation. (Matt 12:25).
The Communists Practise Oneness
Remember that communist Russia is neither Christian nor Moslem. Even China, the most populous country in the world, is neither Christian nor Moslem. If you make it a condition that whosoever is not a Christian cannot have money, does it mean that the Russians and Chinese have no money? Do the communist countries and those who do not know God have no money? Do they not eat, do they not have good government? They have love, and they do not steal. The communist countries practise the virtue of “live and let live.” They do not go on prostitution. If you have no job, they pay you unemployment allowance. But the Christians are an atomistic society, constantly at war with itself. What will cause the communists to embrace Christianity?
You profess you know God so you curse the necromancers and others, but unfortunately you fall sick and you are taken to a necromancer for treatment, what then is your pride? You argue that whoever indulges in the preparation of concoction is satanic, but tomorrow when you have not yet indulged in necromancing, you become sick and you are taken before him, and he heals you, who is God between you and him? You preach that hospitals are not good and that people should not be given medication; neither should they take enema. But tomorrow when you become sick you pray and fast, and take the holy oil, still you are not cured. You are then taken to the hospital, (a big disgrace to you); and then you take drugs for treatment. Was that not the hospital that you condemned?
Non-Religionists Are More Amendable Than Religionists
If you consider critically you will notice that those who do not belong to any church denominations are better, they are merciful, they are more loving and co-operative than churchgoers. If you go to any community where there are no church denominations, the people have love, they speak with one voice, but when church denominations are established, division will set in, people will advise their relations not to go to one church denomination or the other. They will cause confusion and would not practise the gospel of God. If you invite a non churchgoer to any church function, he will respond, but if a necromancer invites a churchgoer, he will refuse to respond by condemning the activities of the necromancers. This is indicative of the fact that the world stands in opposition but the government in power is Brotherhood which is invariably oneness. Any person who sows the seeds of division has crucified our Lord Jesus Christ the second time; and the most hideous crime ever committed by any person is to sow the seed of discord.
Even as we are here, whosoever professes to be a real brother cannot lend a hand if you have any problem. He will instead disgrace you. But a person who has never heard about Brotherhood will render assistance to you. If you go to preach to a necromancer, he will fall down and plead for forgiveness, but a Brotherhood will refuse to listen to your gospel and tell you that he has already known God. The glory we have is derivable from thieves, prostitutes, murderers, necromancers and other sinners; but from Brotherhood we derive only disgrace and intimidation.
When Peter was told to kill and eat he said, “not so Lord for I have never eaten anything common or unclean.” But I want to tell you that the significance of this is that every thing is good. All are one. Call yourself what you may, call yourself a tree, or apparition, but you are not an apparition. It is a matter of semantics. some people call themselves wizards, others call themselves ghost, but these are names to intimidate others, names of prowess, but they are all Brotherhood.
Love And Oneness
If you enter to preach in any church denomination the people will be antagonistic towards you. The Pastor will hide away and listen to your sermon, whether you will preach about division because it is what they preach. But if you tell them that all human beings are brothers, that man should not sow the seed of division, that man should love one another, that there is only one God, do you think that the pastor will hate you, and do you think that he will not invite you to preach again?
Why the church denominations are skeptical to invite you to preach is that they fear that the shaky things they have will be rendered ineffective. They do not want you to preach that they should not drink or that they should abandon one church denomination for the other. If you do so, they will stop you.
If someone tells you that he has seen a beautiful dress in the market, but that the condition of getting it is that you should divest yourself of all your old clothes and go naked to the market to obtain the new clothes; will you go to the market naked? That is what you do, but is it what I preach to you?
The Various Aspects Of Brotherhood
When you go through the book entitled “WHAT IS BROTHERHOOD”, you will realise that everything is explained to you therein, but today I have taken time to expatiate on the various aspects of Brotherhood that you may go and practise what you see me display as a model, how I speak, how I move, how I interact with a view to your emulating my own example by practising the gospel and also passing the gospel to those who are not as fortunate as yourselves.
There is only one spirit, but diversities of gifts,(1 Cor 12:4) these diversities alone do not preclude people from being children of God. As you hold on to your own gift, I shall hold on to my own gift, and each of us should hold on to our individual gifts, I shall hold on to my own gift, and each of us should hold on to our individual gift, because one man is given in one direction while another person is given in another direction. God cannot afford to bestow all His gifts on one person only but has got to share his gifts fairly to all His children, an indication that if we are all children of God, we are one and indivisible.
Another Sheep Which Is Not Of This Fold Must Be Brought
What has our Lord Jesus Christ told you? He asks what man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, doth not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one which is lost, until he finds it. (Matt 18:12). That is the message imparted to you, and the mission assigned to you to go into the whole world and preach unity and oneness to all the inhabitants of the world. Whenever you are confronted by any person, open these passages for him to read in order to understand. Tell them to love one another, they should not hate any person neither should they impute sins unto others. One church denomination should not condemn other church denominations. It is not uncommon to find a bishop alleging that his members have indulged in the preparation of concoction and so gets them suspended whereas the bishop has plunged himself deep in all forms of diabolical things.
If you like, do not refer to Brotherhood as Brotherhood of Cross and Star but refer to it as the “Brotherhood of Man” that others may be happy. Indicate to him that you are his brother and you should show by practical demonstration how a brother should behave towards his brother. But if you say that you are Brotherhood, he will swear by everything that till he dies he will never be a Brotherhood. He has made this assertion because he does not understand the language used. Is it what one should quarrel about, if you tell him that he is a child of God? But when one does not understand the language with which you speak to him, he would rather quarrel with you than accept your point of view.
Unity Of Faith
Do not refer to Brotherhood as a church, because if you assert that Brotherhood is a church, he will refuse to follow on the simple ground that he belongs to the church of his fathers. Inform him, that this is the Kingdom of God, and that the Holy Spirit has come to gather every person together, and that there is neither division, nor discrimination, nor segregation, and that there is no differentiation between the whites and the blacks and the coloured people but that all the inhabitants of the world are but one. Hitherto we were foolish and ignorant but now by the arrival of the Holy Spirit our eyes are opened for us to realise that we are brethren, children of the same father, the children of Adam, children of Abraham, children of Isaac and children of Jacob.
The Scripture advises that if a man be overtaken in a fault, we who are spiritual, should restore such a person in the spirit of meekness, considering that we should take precaution lest we also fall into the same temptation. (Gal 6:1) This explains why I respond to invitations sent to me by an idolater. When he sees the Father’s representative, he will suspend his idolatry confessing that he knows the Leader, but we do not preach that he should not continue with his idolatry and mermaid worship. Our emphasis is that all of us are in Brotherhood. Convinced more than anything else, he, in the final analysis, confesses that he had baptized into Brotherhood.
It is the doubt in your mind that urges you not to eat, but I advise that you can eat since all your actions are based on ignorance. What God has promised to do, He will redeem His promise, the only thing we have to do, is to clear the forest and allow it dry for God to set it on fire in due season. Do not bother yourself anymore.
Be Sociable In Order To Win Those Associated With You
Why did Saint Paul win a greater following? Why did our Lord Jesus Christ win so many souls without any form of discrimination? There was a complete absence of segregation and division. Paul, the Apostle said, “And unto the Jews, I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; unto the uncircumcised; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law. To the weak became I as weak that I might gain the weak: I am made of all things to all men that I might by all means save some.” (1 Cor 9:20-22). Consider the stand of Saint Paul. It is our duty to go into the church denominations, go among the members of the secret societies, among the necromancers, among the prostitutes, among members of Amorc; go into medical institutions, schools, firms companies and every facet of the society in order to collect and gather together all the children of God. If we believe that we are all brothers and that we are also Brotherhood that will be the commencement of our unity. Right from today we have to try to accomplish the duty which the Apostles and Evangelists had rightly rendered in a spiritual chorus that, “To make the whole world one is a task that must be done.” And that is the duty we all have to fulfill, and this, in effect, is the duty greater than the one which our Lord Jesus Christ had done. To be sincere to him, this duty is not greater because he is the only person to perfect the duties performed by all men on earth. We all have to rise in concert to bring about the amalgamation of the world.
If we all believe that goats, hens, cocks, birds, animals and fishes are Brotherhood; then if a goat enters a place of worship, would you drive it away? Since it only comes to listen to the word of God, would you drive it away? I had already informed you that man is goat, man is hen, man is ant, and that man is bird, and fish and every other thing. If, therefore, a necromancer demands that you should offer a cock and a hen, he is in effect demanding for a man and a woman; and if they are killed, then a man and a woman are dead. Goats birds and other animals have their own specific assignments in their own kingdoms. The order should, therefore, be, “live and let’s live.” Allow each of them to operate in its own specific kingdom because they are all humans except that they are angels who are all subordinates to man, who was appointed a superintendent. The Scriptures enjoins us to: “Honour all men, love the Brotherhood, fear God, honour the king.” (1 Peter 2:17).
Brethren, I have no intention of being tedious unto you. A stroke of the cane is sufficient unto the wise. Those who have ears let them hear. May God bless His Holy Words. Amen.
