1. Many people truly desire to know God and worship Him, but are confused by the plethora of gods and religion thrown at them. It is a shame to see multitudes call on God every day, in diverse languages, not knowing who He is. Every culture, down through the ages, celebrates a god or diversity of gods to appease every shade of opinion. The Greeks, in times past, went way ahead of others to raise an altar to THE UNKNOWN GOD. Apostle Paul said: “… I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship…” [Acts 17:23] Among Christians, there is needless confusion about who is God in the TRINITY of FATHER, SON and HOLY SPIRIT. The confusion has degenerated to the grave error of three gods, equal and sharing one throne! One thing is clear, without a clear IDENTITY of God, it is impossible to please or worship Him in any meaningful manner, as it is written: “But without FAITH it is impossible to please him: for HE THAT COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” [Hebrews 11:6] Who do you BELIEVE God is? Do you really know who God is? These questions demand your urgent attention. God is ETERNAL, INVISIBLE and not subject to scientific, theological, personal and or philosophical explanation. The ONLY LINK between man and God is FAITH and the ONLY WAY to understand Him is to accept what He says of Himself. The Bible says: “Through FAITH we UNDERSTAND that THE WORLDS WERE FRAMED BY THE WORD OF GOD, so that THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN WERE NOT MADE OF THINGS WHICH DO APPEAR” [Hebrews 11:3] Do you believe the worlds, both material and spiritual, were FRAMED by the SPOKEN WORD? If you do, you just exercised FAITH to hear God SPEAK to you! The more of the SPOKEN WORD you hear and accept, by FAITH, the more He reveals Himself to you. The Bible says: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD” [John 1:1] God is not a FORCE or an OLD MAN sitting on an ancient throne. God is what He says and who He says He is by His WORD. To avoid confusion, God is ETERNAL and has no beginning or end. The phrase, “In the beginning”, is a figure of speech to emphasize the everlasting indissolubility and the WORD and God. The WORD is God and the SPOKEN WORD is His IDENTITY.
  2. Adam and Eve identified God through the SPOKEN WORD, as it is written: “And THEY HEARD THE VOICE OF THE LORD GOD walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden” [Genesis 3:8] Again, God, “walking in the Garden” was a figure of speech. The SPOKEN WORD was the IDENTITY of God, which when they heard,they were ashamed of their transgression and hid themselves. Abraham heard God several times in dreams and visions and had no problem recognizing the SPOKEN WORD when three strangers came to his tent at Mamre [Genesis 18:1]. The men were in every detail like you and I and even ate in his presence. When they spoke he identified the VOICE of God without further introduction and said: “…Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes” [Genesis 18:27] When the Angel of the Lord appeared to Moses in the burning bush, there was no image or likeness of a man or angel, but the SPOKEN WORD. God indeed appeared in diverse forms to His people and messengers down the ages, blending with the times to make Himself heard. In all cases, the form was the messenger, but the IDENTITY of God was the SPOKEN WORD.
  3. The SPOKEN WORD came to the Prophets of old in diverse forms, as it also did to John, as the Bible says: “…the WORD OF GOD CAME UNTO JOHN the son of Zacharias in the wilderness” [Luke 3:2] The WORD came and DWELT WITH THEM, but not IN ANY OF THEM. At the appointed time, “…the WORD WAS MADE FLESH, AND DWELT AMONG US…” [John 1:14] The CREATOR DWELLING IN FLESH was the MYSTERY that settled the lingering controversy of God’s PERSONAL IDENTITY. God, not willing that any should perish PREPARED Himself a BODY and the SPOKEN WORD DWELT IN ONE MAN, Jesus Christ, as it is written: “Wherefore WHEN HE COMETH INTO THE WORLD, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but A BODY HAST THOU PREPARED ME” [Hebrews 10:5] The IDENTITY of God is PERSONIFIED in Jesus Christ in who “…DWELLETH ALL THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY” [Colossians 2:9] The SPOKEN WORD which at the onset of creation framed the worlds, walked this earth, as proof of God’s PERSONAL IDENTITY and Apostle John confirmed thus: “THAT WHICH WAS FROM THE BEGINNING which we have HEARD which we have SEEN with our eyes, which we have LOOKED upon, and our hands have HANDLED, of the WORD OF LIFE” [1 John1:1] Jesus Christ is the PERSONAL IDENTITY of God and there is no”…SALVATION in any other: for there is NONE OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN given among men, WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED” [Acts 4:12]
  4. Do not be deceived by any means, God is ONE, NOT A TRINITY and there is no controversy about His manifestation in FLESH, as it is written: “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” [1 Timothy 3:16] Mundane argument of supremacy between FATHER, SON and HOLY GHOST are needless distractions that was answered more than two thousand years ago, when Jesus Christ said to Philip: “…I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? HE THAT HAS SEEN ME HATH SEEN THE FATHER; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?” [John 14:9] Jesus Christ is the PERSONAL IDENTITY of the SPOKEN WORD. In Jesus Christ we have access to God and His wonderful promises of ETERNAL GLORY [Colossians 1:27] Without FAITH and RECONCILIATION with God through His PERSONAL IDENTITY, every work or service done in the name of religion is a nullity. At His Coming, the Lord shall separate the wise and faithful from PRETENDERS who have not His PERSONAL IDENTITY and shall say to such: “…I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity” [Luke 13:27]
  1. Beloved, these things are true and the coming of the Lord is at hand. I enjoin you, if you already received the SPOKEN WORD made flesh, to keep your garments clean and your heart sealed with the Holy Ghost, in readiness for His Coming. If you are in doubt or in denial, I plead with you to search the Scriptures diligently and receive Jesus Christ today as your Lord and Saviour, amen.



While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him” [Matthew 25:5-6]

1. Church is Christ’s army of militant Saints.
Church was established on the Rock of prophetic revelation of God in Christ, as it is written: “… Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God…for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven…and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” [Matthew 16:16-18] The strategic objective of the Church is to occupy the earth and raise a bountiful harvest of brides in readiness for the return of Jesus Christ. The Lord presented a detailed battle plan to His troops, empowered His Church and charged them, saying: “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” [Acts 1:8] The power to occupy and be fruitful on earth was granted on critical condition that the Church; “…Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” [Mark 16:15] Expectedly, legitimacy of Church is tied to the instruction to “go into all the world”. The power of the Holy Ghost is activated with signs when the command is obeyed, as the Bible says: “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues” [Mark 16:17] Please note, “signs shall follow” meaning the Church is alive and empowered as long as it is on the “go” agenda.

2. The Church slumbered.
Church was born in a blaze of glory, saving souls from city to city and; “…from house to house, Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” [Acts 20: 20-21] After the apostles went to be with the Lord, vain theologies of “rest and “static growth” crept into the fold, as foretold: “…after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them” [Acts 20:29-30] After many years of waiting for the Lord to return the Church slumbered as “grievous wolves”, teaching “gain as godliness”, brought the Church to “rest” from her many battles [1 Timothy 6:5] The Church slipped into the error of Israel in the wilderness where the; “…people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron…and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt” [Exodus 32: 3-4] The Church slunk into deep slumber when it stopped going for souls and “sat” to gather gold from the flock in tabernacles of bricks and glass. God sent men in every age to revive the Church, but as soon as they were gone, false preachers lured the people to slumber in religious sects and factions.

3. The Church slept.
Pentecostal revivals of 1940s, stretching to 1960s briefly revived and empowered the Church. By the 1970s, the revival was stifled by bickering and; “Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness…” [1 Timothy 6:5] As the fire went out, the flocks developed “itching ears” and as foretold would not; “…endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” [2 Timothy 4:3-4] “Itching ears” soon worsened to deafness and Church went from slumber to deep sleep. The sleeping Church is immune to the love of Truth and ensnared in strong delusion, as it is written: “…because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie” [2 Thessalonians 2:10-11] Beloved, be not deceived by growing number of parishes and membership explosion, the Church is fast asleep and this generation unmistakably fulfills prophecy, as the Bible says: “While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept” [Matthew 25:5] The sleeping Church is rich and increased with goods but naked and wretched before God. Thus says the Lord: “Because thou sayest I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” [Revelation 3:17]

4. The “midnight cry” is the final call.
The Church is fast asleep but the “friends” of the Bridegroom are awake to herald His Coming with the “midnight cry”, as the Bible says: “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps” [Matthew 25:6-7] The “friends” of the Bridegroom did not slumber but kept sleep away by knowledge and revelation of prophetic agenda, as it is written: “…I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you” [John 15:15] The “midnight cry” is the sharp sickle of the reaper that separates wheat from chaff and wise virgins from foolish virgins. I testify that the “midnight cry” is ringing, loud and clear, in all nations. The Church is stirring to life and the “virgins” are stepping out with their lamps but not all are ready, and when the bridegroom came; “…they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut” [Matthew 25:10] The difference between wise and foolish virgins is “readiness” to be with the Lord. Wise virgins are willing, prepared and ready to lose this world to be with the Lord. Foolish virgins are religious but unduly attached to the present world. Brethren, this is the “midnight cry”; “…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us” [Hebrews 12:1]

5. Awake and prepare to meet the Lord.
Beloved, now is the time to awake out of slumber. The season of the Gentile Church is fast running out and the Lord shall descend; “…from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” [1 Thessalonians 4:16] I charge you to awake to the urgency of the season, step out of the sleeping Church and prepare to meet the Lord. Whereas you may not have to leave your local parish, you must by all means break the yokes of doctrinal and spiritual slumber and be made ready in the liberty of the Son of God. I witness that this is the “midnight cry” and; “…it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed” [Romans 13:11] Let him that has ears listen and take heed to what the Spirit is saying to the Church, as it is written: “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” [Revelation 18:4]




“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” [Revelation 20:10]

1. Life is a bundle of mysteries.
One of the enigmas of this existence is strategic satanic warfare. It is the reason there is so much suffering and, “…the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now” [Romans 8:22] Here is the story. When it pleased God to reveal Himself to His angelic creation, He did in Jesus Christ and demanded worship, as it is written: “…when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him [Hebrews 1:6] Satan, whose angelic name is Lucifer, had other ideas, as the Bible says: “O Lucifer, son of the morning!…thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north” [Isaiah 14:12-13] So, there was insurrection in heaven, “…Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels” [Revelation 12:7] The rebels were defeated and exiled, as it is written: “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” [Revelation 12:9]

2. Satan was defeated, not vanquished.
The goal of strategic satanic warfare is to muster forces; “…into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon” [Revelation 16:16] Armageddon is more than a physical location. It is the final showdown between light and darkness. The infernal hosts are led by a trinity of satanic incarnations to gather and stamp footmen for the last stand. The sinister triumvirate of False Prophet, Beast and Dragon is no other but Lucifer changing masks, but the same spirit, as it is written: “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty” [Revelation 16:13] Strategic satanic warfare plundered all human civilizations for souls, from Mesopotamia to now. It aided the rise and fall of empires to cause confusion, in search of captives. In like manner, satanic warfare promoted “miracles” in science, technology and social order to please the flesh, dull the spirit and ravish souls.

3. Let us track the False Prophet.
The primary objective of this deceiver is to ambush and seal souls to perdition with mark of the Beast. The False Prophet crept into the Garden of Eden in the serpent, as the Bible says: “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” [Genesis 3:4] The woman was caught off-guard and tricked into rebellion, as it is written: “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat” [Genesis 3:6] The masquerade sold the dummy of false religion to Eve as he does to every man born of woman. But God receives and deliver those who obey and worship Him, on His narrow terms, from snares of satanic warfare. No religion has access to God, Jesus Christ is the narrow Way to peace and reconciliation with God, even as the Lord confirmed, saying: “… I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” [John 14:6] Those who “see” and “desire” God and what He offers on their own terms are slaves to doctrines of their oppressors, as it is written: “…This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” [Mark 7:6-7]

4. False religion is cruel bondage.
God is not the; “…author of confusion, but of peace,…” [1 Corinthians 14:33] The multitude of religious beliefs and ever-increasing number of apostate churches are products of demonic warfare. Do not be deceived, God has no anointed denomination or parish. For those who do not know, the word ”Christian”, was coined in Antioch as adjective to describe those who walked as “pilgrims” in the Way and not as noun as now used [Acts 11:26] Those who profess Christ and preach material gain as proof of godliness enslave their victims in false religion and ruthless servitude to Satan. True worshippers are pilgrims not carpetbaggers, as the Bible says; “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul” [1 Peter 2:11] The Almighty knows His own and keeps a book where He inscribed names of His pilgrims and; “…whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” [Revelation 20:15] Those who kill and maim in the name of God have no entries in His book [John 16:2]

5. The False Prophet is here.
The Bible says: “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon” [Revelation 13:11] This Pretender spoke through serpent in Eden, but now incarnates in a man to lead his prisoners of war to Armageddon. He is concealed in guise of peace-maker and “lamb”, but shall soon speak and do; “…after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie” [2 Thessalonians 2:9-11] The damned “lamb” is hand in gloves with United Nations and others, pushing all beliefs into one inter-faith assembly. When he speaks of global peace and unity of all religions, it is to deceive: ““…them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast…” [Revelation 13:13-14] When all creeds are united, the impostor shall be revealed and his victims handed over to the Beast to be numbered and stamped with the “mark”.

6. Beloved, strategic satanic warfare is real.
All these things shall come to pass in due season. Now is the time to enforce your liberty in Jesus Christ and; “…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” [Philippians 2:12] The mark of the Beast is round the corner, without which; “…no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” [Revelation 13:17] What delays the “mark” is the departure of Saints, when the Lord Jesus Christ shall descend: “…from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air…” [1 Thessalonians 4:16-17] After the departure of the Elect, an enraged Satan shall enforce the “mark” in readiness for Armageddon. Any man that will not receive the “mark” and; “…worship the image of the beast should be killed” [Revelation 13:15] Seek God today and return to the safety of the Almighty through Jesus Christ, who is able to save to the uttermost those who; “…come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them” [Hebrews 7:25] Part Two follows shortly.

The riddle of Israel in prophetic timeline is resolved, line upon line and precept on precept

“And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed” [Genesis 32:28]

1. Israel is a three-fold riddle.
One, Israel is the prophetic name of God’s chosen people in every age [Acts 10:35) Adam and Eve were the chosen generation in Eden as Noah and his family in the Ark. At the appointed time, God fulfilled His promise to Abraham, chose Jacob above his brother and changed his name saying: “…Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men…” [Genesis 32:28] The prophetic heritage of Israel is adoption by God, as it is written: “…an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth” [Deuteronomy 14:2] Two, Israel is the nation and embassy of God on earth. God chose His people in Jacob and the nation was formed when God brought His people out of Egypt. Three, Israel is the land God promised to Abraham, saying; ”And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession…” [Genesis 17:8] The three parts are crucial to the binding covenant of Israel and pointers to unravel equations of time and divine agenda.

2. Israel is more than a religion or race
Israel is a covenant arrangement that is binding as long as the three dimensions are aligned in divine purpose. Israel is much more than a family tree or genealogy of Jews, as the Bible says: “For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God” [Romans 2:28] When the chosen people denied the covenant, God by uncommon mercy adopted Gentiles into the commonwealth of Israel through grace and faith in Jesus Christ. This is a mystery, as it is written: “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel until the fulness of Gentiles be come in” [Romans 11:25] Today, everywhere the gospel of Jesus Christ is preached, God accepts repentant souls into Israel, as the Bible says: “…God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him” [Acts 10:34-35] Beloved, we are the children of God and the Israel of God, born not of flesh and blood but of the Spirit of Christ.

3. Israel is prophecy in motion.
Israel was blinded and sidelined for a season, as it is written: “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled” [Luke 21:24] A new Israel was born, necessitating a shift in the trajectory of prophecy from Jews to Gentiles. Gentile Israel fulfilled the prerequisites of the binding covenant. One, everyman that receives Christ is chosen by God and adopted into His family as the chosen generation. Two, the Church planted by Jesus Christ is the nation and embassy of God. Three, the earth is the land, purified by the blood and preaching of Christ. The “times of the Gentiles” refer to the allotted time of Gentile Israel. The season of Gentiles ran through “seven Church ages” from Ephesus to Laodicea [Read Revelation chapters 1-3] Time is fast running out for Gentile Israel and the excesses of the Laodicean Church. The Church is blind and deluded, saying: “…I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” [Revelation 3:17] Every prophecy pertaining to Gentiles shall be concluded shortly, as it is written: “For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth” [Romans 9:28]

4. Israel shall be redeemed.
Thus says the Lord: “Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness” [Isaiah 1:27] The judgment of Zion was long, but now her redemption is at hand. In 1948, the land was restored and the “fig tree” took root, but has no leaves or fruit [Matthew 24:32] The state of Israel is the “blade” that shall yet bring forth the “ear” and then the “corn in the ear” [Mark 4:28] Presently, the state of Israel fulfils only one part of three dimensions of the binding covenant. The citizens know not their God and the sanctuary of His presence is absent. Right now, Zion is work-in-progress and it shall remain so until Gentile Israel is translated to glory. Beloved, watch out, the “man of sin” shall soon be revealed; “…whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders” [2 Thessalonians 2:9] He shall broker peace with the state of Israel and the temple shall be restored. But he shall work deceitfully, desiring to sit as god in the temple, as it is written: “And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully…” [Daniel 11:23] But there shall not be two “Israel” on earth; the Gentile flock shall be translated before the three parts of Zion are aligned. There shall be great tribulation as never before and in the midst thereof, God shall turn to Zion and give power to His; “…two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth” [Revelation 11:3] The remnants of Israel shall return to God and as many as shall believe the two prophets shall be redeemed.

5. Israel is ready to go.
You have two eyes; keep one on Zion and the other on the Laodicean Church and her excesses. Any moment from now, Gentile Israel shall be translated, as the Bible says: “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” [1 Corinthians 15:52] This is the Laodicean Church age and we are in the final stretch of “time of the gentiles”. Jesus Christ is knocking at the door of your heart, perhaps for the last time, saying: “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” [Revelation 3:20] Beloved, this is not time to revel in sin and crass materialism, as it is written: “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us” [Hebrews 12:1]

1. I charge you to be strong in the Lord, for we “… must through MUCH TRIBULATION enter into the kingdom of God”[Acts 14:22] Every man that comes to Christ shall be TRIED, not by God but the TEMPTER, that the “… TRIAL of your FAITH, BEING MUCH MORE PRECIOUS THAN OF GOLD that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ”[1 Peter 1:7] TRIALS are the works of Satan operating through the FLESH to bring afflictions and accusations against children of God, as it is written: “…for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, WHICH ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD day and night” [Revelations 12:10] Men, like clay, are of diverse texture and the weak easily break down in the heat of affliction. I encourage you to be strong and endure to the end, as the Bible says: “Blessed is the man that ENDURETH TEMPTATION: for when he is tried, he shall receive the CROWN OF LIFE …” [James 1:12]

2. There were TRIBULATIONS in every age and whatever affliction you are passing through is neither knew nor uncommon. While in this world, both SAINT and WORST OFFENDER must contend with hardship of one sort or another in this world, as it is written: “There hath no TEMPTATION taken you but such as is COMMON TO MAN: but GOD IS FAITHFUL, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make A WAY TO ESCAPE, that ye may be able to bear it” [1Corinthians 10:13] Whereas the SINNER suffer for his offence, the RIGHTEOUS endure TRIBULATION to prove his FAITH. However, it is no good to endure for a while and then collapse into sin. I will remind you what the Lord said to His disciples : “And ye shall be HATED OF ALL MEN for my name’s sake: but he that ENDURETH TO THE END SHALL BE SAVED” [Matthew 10:22] Aside the HATRED, no man on earth is immune to the general PAINS and SORROWS of this dying world, as PROPHECY is fulfilled. The Bible says: “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth DISTRESS OF NATIONS, with PERPLEXITY; the sea and the waves roaring” [Luke 21:25]

3. Brethren, Satan knows his time is short, WORSE THINGS are coming and no nation shall escape the tribulation ahead. This generation shall be purged in the crucible of TRIBULATION, to separate WHEAT from CHAFF before the appearance of the Lord. Those who fear the Lord have no reason to fear present or future TRIBULATION, but rejoice; assured that present challenges are incomparable to the JOY of being caught up with the Lord at His Coming, “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the GLORY WHICH SHALL BE REVEALED IN US. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God” [Romans 8:18-19] However, present TRIBULATION shall cause many to TURN AWAY from the FAITH into APOSTASY, as it is written: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come A FALLING AWAY, and that MAN OF SIN BE REVEALED, the son of perdition” [2 Thessalonians 2:3] This PROPHECY is partially fulfilled as the Church is inundated with FALSE PREACHERS and their hapless flocks FALLING AWAY into APOSTASY.

4. APOSTATE CHURCH is not hard to find, she is busy building bridges to all shades of FALSE RELIGION in a global inter-faith quest for peace. But there shall be no peace, “For when they shall say, PEACE and SAFETY; then SUDDEN DESTRUCTION cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” [1Thessalonians 5:3] Listen closely, as the temple priests persecuted the apostles, renegade Church shall afflict the SAINTS, and “… WHOSOEVER KILLETH YOU WILL THINK HE DOETH GOD SERVICE” [John 16:2] The BEAST shall arise in the midst of TRIBULATION, “And the BEAST which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the DRAGON GAVE HIM HIS POWER. And his SEAT, and great AUTHORITY. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and ALL THE WORLD WONDERED AFTER THE BEAST” [Revelations 13:2-3] The Beast is Satan incarnate in specially chosen men to deceive and drive all nations into a GLOBAL GOVERNMENT in the guise of peace and prosperity.

5. Many things are happening across the globe, both hidden and open to facilitate the emergence of the GLOBAL EDIFICE of DECEPTION. When the last nail is in, the MAN OF SIN shall be unveiled who shall unleash unprecedented terror against SAINTS and BLASPHEME the name of God, as the Bible says: “And he opened his mouth in BLASPHEMY AGAINST GOD, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to MAKE WAR WITH THE SAINTS, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” [Revelations 13:5-7] Beloved, be strong in the Lord and hold on as PROPHECY is fulfilled. Famine, terror, wars, climate change, etc., are the fingers of TRIBULATION creeping all over the earth like never before. Though multitudes are turning their back to Christ, in the heat of afflictions, I enjoin you to hold on to the PROMISE of His Coming, when the SUN OF RIGHTEOUNESS shall arise to heal all pains, as it is written: “But unto you that fear my name shall the SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS ARISE WITH HEALING IN HIS WINGS; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall” [Malachi 4:2] At His Coming, we shall be liberated from this body of sin and suffering and shall be glorified with Him forever [1 John 3:2)

6. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and receive GRACE to ride through pressing TRIBULATION to EVERLASTING GLORY at His appearance, amen.


1. Every man is known by what he knows. If any man does not know how he got here and where he is going, he is lost. Man is finite, mortal and crafted in flesh and blood. God is Spirit, immortal and invisible. Creator and creature are worlds apart, as the Bible says: “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” [Isaiah 55:9] Man relates by communication, God interacts by revelation. If all a man knows is by natural communication, he is not better than a beast. The Bible is the most widely read book and worst understood because it is inspired by God and a MYSTERY to those who read it without revelation. They are confounded by seeming contradictions and never find God. For example, the Bible says: “In the BEGINNING created the heaven and the earth” [Genesis 1:1] And in John is written: “In the BEGINNING was the WORD, and the WORD was with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD” [John 1:1] Two BEGINNINGS and one God may sound confusing to some but is not. Genesis proclaimed the onset of time and creation of the present world. John probed endless invisible worlds and assorted creations to unveil pristine revelation of God in the WORD. The former declared birth of time, the latter confirmed endless existence of God in the WORD.

2. The earth is as old as time and gone through many cycles of life, as home to diverse creatures including other species of humanoids, spiritual personalities, animals, plants, etc. What those in search of the “MISSING LINK” classify as progenitors of man, are creatures whose time elapsed before the CREATION of Adam. Though not the first on earth, MAN is by divine providence the LAST, HEIR and possessor of the earth, as it is written: “The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men [Psalms 115:16] At the beginning of this cycle, “…the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep…” [Genesis 1:2] The story began in heaven from where the; …great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” [Revelation 12:9] The invaders demonized inhabitants of the earth. Catastrophic consequences altered the orbit of the earth and the planet was enveloped in darkness, cut off from sun and moon. About 6,000 years ago, God restored our world in orbit round the sun and made man in His own image to repopulate the earth, as the Bible says: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth…” [Genesis 1:26]

3. God made man in His own image, but God is not FLESH, as the Bible says: “GOD IS A SPIRIT: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” [John 4:24] The first model of man was SPIRIT, in the  IMAGE of God, as it is written: “So God created man in his own image, IN THE IMAGE OF GOD CREATED HE HIM; MALE and FEMALE created he them” [Genesis 1:27] Take note, God created “HIM”; “MALE and FEMALE”. The first model of HIM had in him both male and female. The man was not bisexual or hermaphrodite but a spirit personality with capacity for both male and female genders. At the next stage of DIVINE AGENDA, God required a physical man to till the earth [Genesis 2:5-6] This was not the job for spirits, and God clothed HIM with the DUST OF THE EARTH, as the Bible says: “And the LORD God FORMED MAN OF THE DUST OF THE GROUND, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and MAN BECAME A LIVING SOUL” [Genesis 2:7] The new man, furnished with SPIRIT, SOUL and BODY was called ADAM. At the appointed time, God separated the FEMALE from HIM, as it is written: “…LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the RIB, WHICH GOD HAD TAKEN FROM MAN, MADE HE WOMAN … [Genesis 2:21-22]

4. God set the FIRMAMENT in place to separate TIME and TIMELESS DIMENSIONS, as it is written: And God said, Let there be a FIRMAMENT in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters” [Genesis 1:6] The firmament was set on “SECOND DAY of creation”, but sun, moon and stars were revealed on the “FOURTH DAY”, as the Bible says: “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years” [Genesis 1:14] The FIRMAMENT came before and is far beyond sun, moon and stars. FIRMAMENT is not earth’s atmosphere or space as we count it, but the spiritual curtain that separates TIME and ETERNITY. On this side is the drama of light and darkness and on the other side, perpetual light. Earth is subjugated under dichotomy of good and evil. The other side is sealed in perfection. The FIRMAMENT cages man and Satan in time,  in duel of LIFE against DEATH. Satan is spirit and man is flesh, without Jesus Christ to restore us to our original spiritual status, there is no hope of getting out of the duel ALIVE.

5. God was manifest in Jesus Christ to restore us to PRIME MODEL, as the Bible says: “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” [1 Timothy 3:16] Without mincing words, Jesus Christ is GOD MANIFEST IN FLESH AND BLOOD, the; “…brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person…” [Hebrews 1:3] If any man receives Jesus Christ as God MANIFEST in man, he is BORN AGAIN, not of flesh and blood but of Spirit, as it is written: “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” [John 3:6] Those who are born of the Spirit are “SPIRIT”, in the IMAGE of God. We are no longer subject to subjugated to TIME and limitations of the FIRMAMENT, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” [I John 5:4] Brethren, the battle has been long and the end of TIME is at hand. Very soon, the FIRMAMENT shall be shattered at the appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ, “…with the trump of God: and THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST: Then WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” [1 Thessalonians 4:16-17] Those who miss the TRANSLATION shall be left to face unprecedented TRIBULATION. I am sure you do not wish to be left behind, seek the Lord now, while He may yet be found and He will redeem your soul, amen.


1. In Part One of this series, we discussed visible and invisible WORLDS, FIRMAMENT, TIME and triple NATURE of man. In Part Two, we focus on Garden of EDEN, SIN, DEATH, the SEED of Adam and SEED of the serpent. The Bible says: “And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed” [Genesis 2:8] Two trees stood out in the Garden, namely: “…the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil [Genesis 2:9] When the fruits were ready, Satan showed up, behold it was the TREE OF LIFE transplanted from heaven, of which the Bible says: “In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the TREE OF LIFE, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations” [Revelation 22:2] Satan, knew his access to the FRUIT of the TREE was revoked and was bent doing same to man. God, knowing his intention, God gave His WORD as armour against the adversary and warned Adam, saying: “But of the TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” [Genesis 2:17] The only shield that could stop the fiery darts of the adversary was the WORD, but there was  loop hole; man’s WILL.

2. Eve, Adam’s wife, her weakness when she put the WORD of God to debate, saying: “…We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die” [Genesis 3:2-3] Satan “is a liar, and the father of it” [John 8:44] When he said to Eve, “YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE”, he seduced her with LIE and “IMPREGNATED” her with SIN. Sin is more than an act; it is the life form of Satan typified by rebellion against God. Sin is the image and true representation of Satan. In man, sin is a state of mind not necessarily an act, as it is written:: “…whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart” [Matthew 5:28] As soon as Eve stepped out of the Word of God, the account of sin was opened on earth. SIN made Eve eat the fruit not the other way, and . By deception, the seed of satanic life form was embedded in man through her. But Adam was not deceived, as the Bible says: “And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression” [1Timothy 2:14] Henceforth, there were two nations on earth. One, born of the SEED of Adam, “… which was the son of God” [Luke 3:38] Two, the nation of Satan, born in SIN embedded in the woman.

3. Another name for Satan is DEATH and his end is DESTRUCTION in the lake of fire, as it is written: “And the DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever [Revelation 20:10] Let me put it this way, Satan, SIN and DEATH are the same thing in different forms. SIN is the SEED, DEATH is FRUIT and Satan is the TREE. With the EVIL SEED passed to man through Eve, everyone born of woman is condemned to DEATH. Our enemy hides under the mask of DEATH to hunt and haunt men into cruel bondage. All praise to God, manifest in Jesus Christ, who; “…also himself likewise took part of the same; that THROUGH DEATH HE MIGHT DESTROY HIM THAT HAD THE POWER OF DEATH, THAT IS, THE DEVIL; deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” [Hebrews 2:14-15] In Jesus Christ we are delivered from SIN and DEATH to EVERLASTING LIFE through FAITH in His DEATH as atonement for our SIN, as it is written: …The just shall live by faith” [Romans 1:17] Those who live in perpetual FEAR OF DEATH confirm that they are slaves to SIN. I assure you, if any man is in Christ, he has passed from DEATH to EVERLASTING LIFE. Thus, says the Lord: “… I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live [John 11:25]

4. Satan sowed his SEED in Eden, using the SERPENT. This SERPENT was not a snake as some imagine, but one of humanoid creatures mentioned in Part One of this series. It is evident the creature was upright and not a creepy crawly until God cursed it, as it is written: “And the LORD God said unto the SERPENT, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; UPON THY BELLY SHALT THOU GO, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life” [Genesis 3:14] The tag, SERPENT, was derived from the spirit behind the mask, that is, Satan who is also known as DRAGON, SERPENT and DEVIL [Revelation 12:9] Listen carefully, God said to the SERPENT: “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between THY SEED seed and HER SEED; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” [Genesis 3:15] So then, we have THY SEED, that is, the SERPENT’S SEED and HER SEED,  that is, the SEED that shall come out of the woman.  Before we go further, let me remind you, the female gender has no SEED but man. In any case, “…ADAM KNEW HIS EVE HIS WIFESHE ; and SHE CONCEIVED, AND BARE CAIN, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And SHE AGAIN BARE HIS BROTHER ABEL…” [Genesis 4:1-2] Please take note, the Bible recorded one “KNOWING”, ONE CONCEPTION, but TWO BOYS, who were not twins! Scripture confirms Cain as the image and likeness of the SERPENT, and Abel, the son of Adam.  Cain was the SERPENT’S SEED, “… WHO WAS OF THAT WICKED ONE, and slew his brother…” [1 John 3:12] After Cain killed Abel, God replenished the stock of Adam with a son after his own LIKENESS, as it is written: “And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and BEGAT A SON IN HIS OWN LIKENESS, AFTER HIS IMAGE”  [Genesis 5:3]

5. The present world is a battle field between the sons of God and SERPENT’S SEED. It is the nature of SERPENT’S SEED, in every age, to persecute and kill the sons of God as Cain did. At the appointed time, prophecy was fulfilled, as it is written: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and HER SEED it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” [Genesis 3:15] As aforesaid, the woman has no SEED in her, but in this case conceived of the WORD and Jesus Christ was born, as it is written: “And the WORD WAS MADE FLESH, and dwelt among us…” [John 1:14] Jesus Christ was in every sense a man and being born of woman and God, for “… in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” [Colossians 2:9] Those who receive Jesus Christ in fulfilment of prophecy, as God manifest in flesh are BORN OF GOD and “… whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” [1John 5:4] I warn those who care to listen, the Lord shall return very soon and shall send His angels to “… sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” [Matthew 13:49-50] I encourage you to receive Jesus Christ today as your LORD and Saviout and be BORN OF GOD, amen.




“And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?” [Matthew 21:23]

1. Authority is the sovereign will of God.
The sovereign will of God is the power that holds all creation in perpetual equilibrium. The will of God is the immutable Word of God, which is Jesus Christ; “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power…” [Hebrews 1:3] Jesus Christ is the manifestation of supreme authority; “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” [Colossians 2:9] The evident expression of Christ’s authority is absolute power in all material and spiritual realms, as the Bible says: “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” [Matthew 28:18] All power resides in Christ and His Kingdom to save and grant everlasting life to those who believe the gospel preached in His name. Satan and his agents are powerless against those who are saved by the will and authority of Jesus Christ, who has: “…raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places…” [Ephesians 2:6] We are raised to everlasting life by the authority of Christ, to reign in His Kingdom free from sin, fear, worry and death. Your incessant fears and worries are proof that you are outside the Kingdom of God and in bondage to sin and death. Ask yourself; by what authority I am living my life? If in doubt, come to Jesus Christ today; the authority in His name will set you free.

2. Authority is legitimate power.
The seal of Christ’s Kingdom on earth is legitimate and infinite power. The power of the Kingdom works within to purge and mold us in the image of Christ and without to preach the mind of God with miracles, signs and wonders according to His purpose. A policeman wears the uniform “without” and speaks from “within”, for the state as proof of delegated authority. If any man claims to work for God let him show proof of the seal of His authority, within and without. When you are in church, do not be carried away by sugar-coated sermons but search the scriptures for the authority of the preacher. When a pastor or bishop is ordained, let him ask himself; by what authority am I inducted to this ministry? Before you fall into the webs of false prophets and sorcerers; “…try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world” [1 John 4:1] The Jews asked Jesus, “by what authority doest thou these thing” but in bad faith, to discredit Him. Wherever you find yourself, ask in good faith; by what authority are we doing the things we do? Remember, your now and eternity are at stake. It is your duty to know the authority by which your pastor or bishop operate. Do so, earnestly seeking the face of God in prayer and fasting.

3. Authority is not in Satan.
Simon was a false preacher and sorcerer to whom the people of Samaria; “…gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries” [Acts 8:10-11] This man bewitched huge congregations through sorceries, telling them he was “the great power of God”. When he saw the apostles demonstrate the power of God, he proposed to buy them off, as it is written: “And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost” [Acts 8:18-19] Beloved, prove the hands laid on you and the oil poured on your head. One thing is sure there is no salvation under clouds of satanic indoctrination. Run for your life from satanic agents in priestly robes who trade miracles for gain. They deceive with lying wonder but are; “…destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself” [1 Timothy 6:5] Those who boast of power without the authority of Present Truth are sorcerers. Before you are bewitched by another Simon in your quest for a miracle, take a breath and ask yourself; by what authority?

4. Authority is not tied to spiritual gifts.
Spiritual gifts are heavenly resources for earthly ministry and not proof of commission or divine authority. Prophet Isaiah had the gift of prophecy. He prophesied from chapter 1 to chapter 5 of his book. In chapter 6, he was commissioned and received the seal of authority as it is written: “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not…” [Isaiah 6:8-9] Over the ages, denominations and parishes have sprung up nurtured by spiritual gifts without Christ’s seal of authority. Spiritual gifts attract multitudes but lack the authority to raise men in the image and likeness of Christ. Balaam had the gift of prophecy but his doctrine taught; “…Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication” [Revelation 2:14] Those who lead the flock with gifts without commission are not purged from within and prone to sundry fleshly weakness. They are; “…blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” [Matthew 15:14] Before you jump at the next word of knowledge or prophecy, ask yourself; by what authority?

5. Authority is the seal of divine approval.
We are in last days; “…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” [Philippians 2:12] Remember, the authority of God is His Word which was made flesh in Jesus Christ. The prophetic revelation of Jesus Christ is the seal of authority that separate wheat from chaff in all generations. The generation of Jesus was sealed by the revelation of Christ the Son of God, as it is written: “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” [Matthew 3:17] Those who believed the voice of heaven were stamped, saved and sealed to everlasting life. This generation shall be separated to life or perdition by Present Truth of Christ’s revelation. Now, the Spirit says expressly that we are in the last days, the prophetic clock is at midnight hour and the appearance of the Lord is imminent. This is Present Truth; those who believe and prepare to receive Christ shall be translated to be with Him forever. If any man claims to speak in the name of the Lord, let him speak Present Truth, as it is written: “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them” [Isaiah 8:20]
