1st Lesson: John 10: 34
"Jesus answered, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?"
2nd Lesson: Romans 8: 16
"The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:"
Golden Text: John 10: 35-36
"If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scriptures cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?"
Brethren, open all your ears, your intellects, to imbibe this gospel. And the Father has already endowed you with the ability to understand these unique teachings and the recondite wisdom of truth. I implore every person to listen with attention. This recondite wisdom of truth is going to be proved mathematically to you as geometry and algebra. This gospel is going to bring to nothing the wisdom of the wise, prudent, the great scientists and the philosophers. Therefore, it is imperative that you all open your minds and receive this gospel. The first question is, do you believe in what is written in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation in its totality? I need an answer. If you believe what is written in the Holy Bible, do you believe in what is written in Psalm 82: 6-7? "I have said, ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most-High, but ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes." That is what you are supposed to keep in mind always. Was it not written that ye are gods? You often deny the veritable truth that man is god. The question is, if man is not god, what is he? Did God not create man in His image and likeness? I therefore stand here in the highest heavens to proclaim and affirm that you are gods.
You Are The Little Gods
When it is said that there are gods of the heaven and gods of the earth; we are all the gods of the heavens and gods of the earth. Although you are the minor gods, God is God; the size and form makes no difference. That is why God Himself, even the Spirit, bears witness that we are the children of God: But the record should be put straight that you are not the Father, the Lord or the King. We have only one Father and one Lord. But you are of God and sons of the Living God. So you are little gods. This has to be revealed to you, and it has been said and has been prophesied that this generation shall not pass away until these words are consummated. Therefore, whenever you see a man, you are seeing God. And that is why wherever you see a man, that is God in His self-reflection.
What You Do To Man Is Done To God
Whenever you call man god, you do not make any mistake in doing so. There is no better name you should call a man than god. It stands to reason therefore to reveal to you that whenever you commit any act of evil against your fellow man, you are directly doing it to God. If you think you are fighting with a man, you are making a great mistake, you are fighting against God. If you steal another man’s property, kill him, fornicate with his wife or children, you are offending God. If you treat a man badly, hate him, disgrace him or abuse him, you are offending God. If you wage any war against man, you are directly waging war against God. If you curse or calumniate against any man, you are doing it to God. If you refuse to help a man, you have also refused to help God. If you manipulate a man or be crafty to any person, you are doing that to God. If you ill-treat or frustrate a man, you are doing the same thing to God.
If you are charitable to a man or love him, you are doing so to God. Therefore, do not waste time gazing at the sky in the vain hope of seeing Jesus the Christ come back. Because, after all, you are all gods. Why you are gods in the plurality is that you are the minor gods. Each man is a small god. He is just like mother goat who gives birth to young ones. Are the young ones not still goats? It is just like a person who marries a wife, and she later delivers a bouncing baby; will you then say that because the new born baby is a child, he is not a human being? That is the fundamental situation that is comparable to the supreme God and the little gods.
That is why you are asked to "love one another even as I have loved you." And He goes on to say "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” (Matthew 25: 35-40)
Though Mortal, Ye Are Still Gods
What is man, my dear brethren, tell me what man is? I am challenging the whole world to tell me what a man is, if he is any other being than god. What is it that a man is not capable of doing? Our Lord Jesus Christ had said that a son cannot do anything except that which His Father has asked Him to do. God had authorised man to rule over all other creations including fishes in water, birds of the air, animals in the bush, the moon, sun, stars, fire, water, trees and everything. Man has been given the mandate to oversee everything; he rules and lords over them all. Man ate of the fruits of the tree of the middle of the garden and became as wise as God. When God saw that man had become as wise as Himself, He ordered that he should be driven out of the Garden of Eden so that he should not further worsen the situation by eating
from the tree of eternal life. Had man eaten this fruit of eternal life, man would have been immortal. But because he was driven out, man remains mortal.
That is why Psalm 82: 6-7 says, "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.” Therefore, if you die today; that does not diminish the fact that you are a mini-god. The erroneous concept held by a number of people should be disregarded. It is idle to keep on insisting that man cannot be god. What of the portions of the Holy Bible, we are treating now? Have you forgotten about it? Therefore, it is true that man is god, and whoever contests this truth will see the fire of God’s wrath burning on his head.
God Is In His Element When He Takes Human Form
It is then senseless to say that God should not come physically to dwell with man on earth. It is self-defeating to hold onto this misleading idea that God cannot be in the form of man. You keep on bothering yourselves about all these elementary and childish ideas concerning God. That is why dear brethren, it is clearly stated in the Holy Bible that whoever does not love is in darkness. And if you do not love your fellow man, how can you love God whom you cannot physically see? It is high time that you stop that foolishness. I wonder how to make you accept without any doubt that man is god. The only thing that can perturb man is the shame and disgrace that man has all the time been subjected to, once he is of God. Yes, it is man's inability to bear such hardship and humiliation. Yet man is a mini-god in reality, and also the image of the living God. So always bear this in mind that whatever you do to men you are doing to God.
Chips Of A Block Of Gold Are Gold
Brethren, that is why the Father has given the teachings on equality to support the fact that any evil done to another person is done to God and done to yourself. We are all the children of God. For example, if you cut off a small portion from gold and use in making bangles, earrings, or finger rings, gold will still remain gold, no matter into what shape it has been committed. So you are chips of God. Therefore, whatever good thing you do, you are doing it for God, and also to yourself. Meanwhile, when you know the truth, the truth shall set you free. As soon as you come to the realization that man is god, you will no longer commit any evil against any person. You will no longer do any vicious act against any fellow man. And eventually you will stay in love with your fellow man.
For example, if you visit a strange place, which is fully electrified, with good roads and other modern infrastructures, but there is no single individual, what will you do there? If you dream and you happen to see a strange city which is without people, what will you tell people when you wake up from sleep? But on the other hand, if you see a man in your dream with long beard, seated in a kingly throne, with all his paraphernalia, and he tells you in a deep voice, I am God, when you wake up the following morning, you will tell people that you have seen
God. I do not mean to manipulate you; henceforth, if any person says that he is not god, you should tell him "man you do not know thyself." That is why I do not hate, or cheat you, nor am I being cunning to you. I love and so extend My expression
of love to all of you because I know that you are part and parcel of God Almighty.
But There Is One Almighty God - Our Father
As it is recorded in Matthew 23: 8-10, Our Lord Jesus Christ has said that you shall call no man Rabbi, “But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.”
We have only one Almighty Father and one Almighty Lord and King who owns the universe and us. We cannot exist alone. We are just like the branches of the tree. Does it mean that if a person has one thousand children, the children are no longer his own because they are too many? Or will you say that we are also not the children of the founder of this earth because His children are rather too numerous? Therefore, that kind of foolish reasoning should stop forthwith. This gospel shall be written, and published for distribution to the entire world. You should also help in giving out copies to people who dare to contend with you on the fact of man being god in reality. Those who refuse to believe are unfortunate. The word of God cannot be uttered for nothing. Its intent and purpose must always be fulfilled. If you are not God, what are you? Where do you come from? Gold could be used to manufacture any jewellery, gold-rings, gold bangles, gold earrings and necklaces. Turn gold into anything, gold will still be gold. So God remains God even though we call the outcome by the word man. Let our first lesson be read, as I do not want to belabour you:
1st Lesson: St. John 10: 34
"Jesus answered, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?"
You claim that you believe in the words of the Holy Bible, why do you not believe that man is god? I believe very firmly that whenever you hate a man, you automatically hate God. When you see a man, you are seeing God. Man is the temple and the house of God. Man is the farm or the vineyard of God. If there is something that can make you to come to the realization of yourself, it should be this unique gospel given to you. Today, therefore, whatever good you do to a man, you are doing it for God.
The Evil You Do To Others Befalls You
When you come to this recondite wisdom, you will not hate, backbite, cause division, fight, cheat or fornicate. Our Lord Jesus Christ used His precious blood to atone for our numerous sins and to unite us together. Those who have come to this consciousness cannot create a situation whereby they build tin gods to lord it over others. There is nothing very effective or meaningful, that an individual can do on his own. We should not allow the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ to be in vain; this blood He has shed to unite humanity. The only unifying force
that can withstand the test of time is love. The limit Adam could reach was where his wisdom stopped. If he had come to the wisdom that God is dwelling in man, he would not have done what he did. You are witnesses to the fact that when a child is born,
you have to groom the child to grow up to be a useful individual. But while the child grows, you will not be conscious of his growth. If man had realized himself, he would not steal, take drugs, kill, fornicate or hate his fellow man. But the
wisdom eluded him because he does not know himself and does not have enduring patience.
We Are Gods When We Attain Purity
The Ten Commandments were brought by Moses for the guidance of man. One of them says “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” The sum total of it all is that you should purify yourself. Then all the vices such as fornication, backbiting, and murder, should be refrained from, and it is in this state of absolute purity we can realize ourselves as gods. God and the Spirit of God in us bear witness with our spirit that we are gods and children of the living God. The emphasis is laid on "the spirit in us." If you say that you are not god, what are you? The Lord God wants all things to be under the supreme Lord and King. We have spirits in us which witness with one another that we are God’s children. The Father is the one who owns everything and us, and Jesus Christ is the Lord of Lords, and the King of Kings.
When You Feed The Hungry And Give Aid To The Poor You Are Doing It For God
Brethren, I do not say things with the intent of tricking you. When did God stay hungry, or when was He thirsty and so on? So when God says "when I was hungry," it means "when man was hungry." Therefore, whatever you do unto man, you are doing it to God. And in doing good, you are directly glorifying God. The so called wisdom of man has been exposed as zero, because if he had so much wisdom, he could have known that when you help another man, you are helping yourself and God also. After all, man does not even know the number of strands of hair on his head. It is only God alone who can accord any person the ability to do anything. Although man is god, yet he is not the Father or the Lord and King. It will be recalled that the interpreter, Bro. Essien, wrote a book of which the chief physiologist in the University became very critical. Although he agreed that what Dr. Essien wrote on the concept of vegetarianism was true, and that the eating of fish and meat should be stopped, he said this was a secret to be hidden away from the general public in the interest of the profession. He failed to realise the health hazard and the overall interest of the masses, who have in one way or the other met their death because of professional self-interest.
I am happy whenever there is the Elder’s Week. The Father uses it to reveal much recondite wisdom of God. For instance, you may call your God to come and help you, and eventually a man comes to render you some help, and you call upon a man to come and help you, but God comes to your aid. You can see that even in a small child, there is that semblance of God in him. If you do something for your fellow man, you are in effect doing it for God. This could be likened to a situation where people are playing in a pool of water and one of them continues to dive into and out of the water asking the rest to find him. As he continues to dive in and out of the water, he may finally disappear from their sight. The on-lookers may think
that the swimmer has drowned inside the water because they do not see him. But suddenly the man they supposed to have got lost in the water emerges to the surprise of the on-lookers. He is the same person. Do these things not happen in this way? This
reveals that God is with men, hiding in their midst. But have you seen him? The same God lives in you. You are the vineyard, the house, you are God’s sheep, you are His vineyard, you are God’s city, you are man and you are spirit.
Even as the spirit has confessed that ye are gods, do you believe this? You are not conscious of the God in you because you do not know yourself, even from the hair of your head down to the toes of your feet. No man can do anything of himself,
except the ability comes from the Father.
If the Father does not give you the ability, you cannot know anything about God. I again referred to the case where the Father used the interpreter to publish a book some time ago, on the medical aspects of vegetarianism. The book circulated around the medical college of the University. But the chief physiologist became infuriated with the contents of this book. He was annoyed not because the book’s contents were untrue, but because his view was that the interpreter should not have revealed this secret to the public because that information is only restricted to the medical profession, and it is not exposed to students who take it as a course in the medical school. The interpreter was almost expelled. But in the heat of the crisis, the Holy Father appeared on the television and preached a sermon on the concept of vegetarianism to the whole nation and the world. This sermon of the Father was universally accepted and this interpreter was freed.
At the end of it all, it became clear that what the Father used the interpreter to write was the truth with the full backing of the Holy Spirit. And so this is what is happening today. If the Father does not give you the ability to know that you are gods, you can never know, let alone accept the fact that you are gods. That is why when God passes through someone to help you, and someone else tells you that it is God who renders the help to you, you doubt it. You will wonder how come it is God? But if man is not god, what then is man? Think of a situation when you conceive a plan to deceive another person and immediately your evil thoughts and plan interact with the mind of that particular person. He would make plans to deceive you also. And eventually as you succeed in deceiving him, each rejoices that he has deceived the other. Both of you are fools. This reveals that any evil plan that you conceive and eventually do to any person, you are thinking and doing the same to yourself. That is why our Lord Jesus Christ said "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:”
The main reason why Christ shed the blood was to unite all people. And once the blood was shed, this unity of all the children of God has been achieved. Every person has been united unto the Father. And there is only one Father, one Lord and one King. He is an indivisible whole. The entire earth is also one, but under the control of man, including the water, fishes, animals, birds, trees; and all other created things are subjected unto man to rule over. If all these things are subjected under your rulership, why do you still say that you are not god? If you are not god, what else are you? Blindness is a bad sickness and our Lord Jesus Christ knew this quite well. That is why for merely saying "I and the Father are one" He was killed.
What if He had said openly He was God, don’t you think that they would have killed Him earlier? Because of man’s blindness, Our Lord Jesus Christ implored us to love our enemies, pray for those who persecute, ridicule and say all manner of
bad things against us the children of God, so that we might resemble our heavenly Father; for He makes the sun to shine on the just and the unjust and sends rain to both good and bad people. We should be perfect as our Father is perfect. This
confirms that we have one and same God. That we should love one another as the Father loves us. This clearly indicates that when you slap a man, you are directly slapping God; whenever you tell lies to a man, you have told lies to God. If you
had known this, you would not have carried out any evil plan against any man, for it is said, any kingdom divided against itself cannot stand.
Man And God As Inseparable As Flesh And Blood
The cause of evil, hardships and untold sufferings prevalent in the world is because every man plans against his fellow human being. And because of this, the Kingdom of the world has fallen, never to rise again. No progress or prosperity, but adversity all round. Had you known this, who would have killed his fellow human being, knowing that the man is god? Who would have arrested his fellow man or counted sin against any person? You would not have done that if you had this recondite wisdom that anything you do unto man you are doing same directly unto God. You can see God even in the sands of the soil, in the water, trees, animals, man and all creation. That is why if you look at a man, you should be afraid to talk to him. You should dread him, because of the god in him. If you are afraid of doing evil to mere man, so much more if it were to God Himself.
You can recall vividly the story of Shylock and Antonio in Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice. It was an agreement between Shylock and Antonio that if Antonio would not repay the debt he owed Shylock, within the given period, Shylock would accept no other compensation whatsoever, but a pound of flesh from near Antonio’s heart. As the case proceeded, the wife of Antonio used the technicality of the law profession and accepted the evidence of the case, that Antonio must pay for his debts. Shylock was given the knife to cut out the pound of flesh from near Antonio’s heart, but provided that no blood should drop down in the process. How can this be? It was impossible for Shylock to cut the pound of flesh from Antonio’s chest without any blood. So also, you cannot separate God from man. That is why Christ said, let the wheats and the tares grow together until the harvest when the wheats will be gathered into the barn and the tares set on fire. But now you have resisted the will of God, there is no way you can kill a man without killing God; and there is no way you can tell lies to a man without telling same lies to God. Whatever you do unto a man whether in thought and/or in deed, you do same unto God. This is why our Lord Jesus Christ said, let the wheats and the tares together grow until the harvest, but today you don’t allow the will of God to take place. You argue and debate; you are a Thomas. Listen to the second lesson:
2nd Lesson: Romans 8: 16
"The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God."
Have you heard that? You are all small gods, you are not the Father, you are not the Lord, and you are not the King. For the Gospel itself bears witness with our spirits that we are gods. Do not be deceived by the phraseology. The expression that ye are
children of God means that ye are the smaller gods. But if you are not God who then is man? Tell Me. You can now see the cause of the downfall of the entire inhabitants of the world because no one person knows himself.
It is said man know thyself. If you knew that you are god, would you have done anything ungodly? You would not have told lies; committed fornication and adultery? You would not have stolen or murdered, consented to the worship of trees, stones, snakes and other aspects of idolatry; you would not have committed any ungodly act.
Remember when Our Lord Jesus Christ healed a person on a Sabbath, the Pharisees accused Him of disrespecting the Holy Sabbath. But He told them, “My Father worketh, hitherto I work.” That a son cannot do anything unless that which he sees his father doing. That is why He said "I am the way, the truth and the life, that no man comes unto the Father but by Me.” and “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.” So we are the branches. Since the branches cannot produce any fruits independently of the tree, so we cannot do any good thing unless we are part of the Father.
The problem with the entire world is that we do not know ourselves; we do not know ourselves to be any good. And because we do not know ourselves we do not also know that our Lord Jesus Christ is the Lord and Saviour, we stray like sheep without a shepherd. The word of God has made it clear to us that we are the temple of the most High God. It is the Spirit of God, which dwells in us. The Holy Spirit dwelling in us is responsible for all these good works we do. He takes us to many places to perform various wonderful works. We should never feel that these works are done by ourselves. These works are performed by the Holy Spirit. We are just His tools and witnesses to these wonderful works done by the Holy Spirit.
That is why when you are directed by the Spirit to reveal to a person that she is a witch, she wonders how you come to know that she is a witch. She will say that you must be a witch also to be able to know her as a witch. When God speaks the words which pass through your mouth to other people, such spoken words often come to fulfilment. The people will become afraid of you. And would ask you to go away with your witchery. This is so because the word you have spoken has become manifest. The God in you has been using you to travel and say things to the people and your words always come true. All these point to the fact that you are gods. But with all these things, did you ever know, let alone accept the fact that you are gods?
The designation "The Father" connotes the supreme being. And from Him all creation takes its existence. The expression Lord and King connotes our Lord Jesus Christ, who had been appointed to oversee all the creation of God. Now, if five people are chosen and sent on a trip, it is customary to appoint one of them as the leader or head of the group. He is still a man. There has always been a head of the group. The other members of the group are not
different in any way from the leader of the group. The group, the body remains one, leader plus followers together.
That explains why our Lord Jesus Christ told His disciples; "Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.” And He said "if you know what this means" you would rejoice indeed because I tell you, “I go to My Father who is greater than Myself." What does that greatness mean? That indicates the bigger Father (God). So the Almighty God has swallowed up all other gods. But the fact that we (the smaller gods) have been swallowed up by the Almighty God does not in any way deprive us from being gods. We still maintain our position as mini-gods.
All those who are involved in the successful production of this gospel, the blessing due to them can better be imagined than described. Now the scales have fallen off your eyes and the wax has been removed from your ears and your stone-heart has been made soft and you will realize that all the bullying of people, boxing one another, dehumanising people and all other atrocities committed against man are against God. It has become clear to you that anything whatsoever you do to any man, you do directly to God. Right here in our midst there are some people who have perceived some evil thoughts against other people. My children since you have been exposed to this recondite wisdom of truth, all those negative thoughts in your minds have been discarded. You would henceforth think well of every person.
Right now, we are the sons of the most-High God. However, we have only one Almighty God, one Lord and one King, this is what has left people wondering why the one and only God should be present in you, in Me, in every other person. This only shows that they are not convinced on the omnipresence attribute of God. The truth is that we have one God Almighty and we are the mini-gods. Thus, oneness of God with all His creations is inevitable. With Him there is no division, no class distinction. Your position and status in life cannot alter this oneness, whether you are a child or adult, a male, or female, whether you are poor or you are rich. It has nothing to do with this conception of oneness and equality.
We are all small gods, sons of the most-High God. This one and only God is the one present in us all. There is only one God and one Son of God, but when you add together all these smaller gods, they constitute Jehovah God and His Christ; which is just one God. The Father, God and the Holy Spirit are but one God. The Father is not different from the Son. The Son is not different from the Father. They created all things and thereafter, the Son is to rule over all the creations. The Father and the Son are one indivisible entity.
It is said that half education is dangerous. The ignorance of the fact that man is God has led many people into empty boasting that they belong to the mermaid family. What is the tree that you worship, the water, stones, animals and other creatures that you are given to worship? Are all these things not created by God and subjected to man to rule? Who is man? Man is a god. There is only one God who is present in each and every creation of God. But after God had completed all His creation, He breathed His own spirit into man, this is what
makes man greater than every other creation of God. For as man has been set up, all other creatures of God have been subjected under the superintendence of man. As soon as you believe in this gospel, you have got your salvation, and I believe that this gospel salvages the entire world. And whatsoever remains for the salvation of man, this gospel has already completed it. Mini-Gods Must Resemble God All the teaching that you receive here in Brotherhood of the Cross and Star confirms this fact. God can never tell a lie. You are gods and therefore it becomes inevitable for you to be revealed as the gods that you are. And therefore it becomes clear that you should no longer wage war against any person. You do not need to lie or commit murder and other atrocities. For if you fight, whom are you fighting against? If you steal, whom do you steal from? The fact is that we are just one indivisible entity with the one and only Father. It is also said in Romans 8: 19 that the whole world is anxiously expecting the revelation of the children of God. And so now you have all been revealed as the children of God. It has also been said in 1st John 3: 2, that we are the sons of God: "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is." Is it a simple thing for anyone to tell a man not to eat fish and meat? Is it a small thing for a man to stand before the congregation and tell them not to drink? Is it a simple thing for a man to stand at the altar and declare that man should not fornicate? Any person who dares to forbid his congregation gets into trouble even before he ends his sermon. His corpse would not be found, soon after he quit speaking. I ask you. Is it so simple for anyone to stand and declare that man is god? Just try it and see the consequence. Even, you have heard a testimony that right up there in the north, one person stood up to say something like that, people surrounded him and called the police for him. Even the government of the country would not take it kindly with anyone who would arrogate himself as being God. In Bendel State somebody proclaimed that he is God and the government of Bendel State got him locked up. They told him to stay there in the cell, and tell people how he ever became God. But this one has declared and proclaimed from the highest heaven that man is god, all men are sons of God, and man is mini-god of the most-high God. Right now, every person has come to the understanding of the truth that man is mini-god. Not the Almighty God, but little gods. Therefore, as gods even though small, you have to resemble your Father, the Almighty God. You have to resemble your Father in love, in truth, in patience, in humility, meekness and lowliness of the mind and in every other virtue. In this way, you the small gods and your Father, the Almighty God, would be one. That is why when the disciples of John the Baptist saw Our Lord Jesus Christ and His disciples baptizing, they told John "Look, the person you baptised, is now baptising other people over the Jordan"; that John should give them the authority to go and stop him (Christ and His disciples) from
baptising people. But John the Baptist told them, "No one can receive anything except that is given Him from Heaven".
It is not that our Lord Jesus Christ did not know all these, but it was not given Him to have expounded on the divine teachings. For it is written about Him, that He should speak in parables and preserve the recondite wisdom until the Comforter, the Holy Spirit comes and unfolds the truth, teaching and leading every man to the accurate knowledge of the truth. Therefore, our Lord Jesus Christ had to conform with the prophesy by speaking in parables. But right now, the Holy Spirit has come indeed to reveal the recondite wisdom in full. Right now, the scales have fallen off your eyes. You are very much aware that any person whosoever stands up to say that He is God, you will see that people will not allow him to ever go scot-free. But now I stand in the highest Heaven to declare that you are gods, sons of the Most High. And you also testify that you have seen God face to face, yet nobody lays hands on us. Let our golden text be read to confirm that all the words of God will not pass away unfulfilled.
Golden Text: St. John 10: 35-36
"If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scriptures cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?"
Your Claim To Be Mini-Gods Is No Blasphemy
Have you not seen how the truth has been proved? Can anyone challenge this? None, for God Himself has said in the bible that ye are gods. What sin has a person committed if he says he is god, and that you are gods? If you believe that you are god and every one believes that he is god, there is that tendency to avoid hatred, killing, division, envy etc. Rather, we shall regard ourselves as one flock under one shepherd. When you say that you are gods, you do not err. It is however blasphemous to say, you are the Father, Lord and King. Are you the Father, the Lord, the King? No. You are not.
Man Is The God Of The Earth
When you hear of God of heaven and God of earth, you are the gods of the earth. You are equally the salt of the earth, and as the salt of the earth, you have to sweeten things for all persons. When you hear a person exclaiming, God, come and help me, it is man who is used to give the help to that needy man. The Father is the one who owns everything, while our Lord Jesus Christ is the one who lords over everything. Still, we are all gods. None of us can do anything by himself unless the ability is given to such a person by the Father. And so we do everything in accordance to His injunction. For it was written: "For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: 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 to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.” (Hebrews 8: 10-12) Have these words not come to full manifestation today?
As Gods, Be Therefore As Virtuous As God
It is evident that we are the different parts of God, but we are constituted into one; that is why it is said that as soon as you come to this realisation, or recognise the fact that you are gods, it will then be incumbent on us to do everything to resemble God. That means that you should be humble, meek, patient, merciful, truthful, loving and so on. In all aspects of your life, you have to show that you have the virtues of God in you. If you were not gods, why should He give you the power to rule over fishes in water, birds of the air, animals in the bush, all creeping things and all His creation? And above all, why did He create you in His image? No far reaching changes will take place in us except we follow His pattern of life as God; we are duty bound to resemble Him. He will not need any other teachings about Him except the practical aspect of His life. What is the image and the likeness of God in us? They are love, joy, mercy, temperance and the rest of the heavenly virtues. Right now we should be identified by these virtues in words and practice. You are the salt of the earth and wherever you go to, you should be so identified. That is why wherever you find people with unsolvable problems, such people are advised to go to Brotherhood for a solution. You are all witnesses to this truth that wherever you go, you are being identified and approached as the children of God. And wherever you offer them prayers and the word of God, they have peace, joy and happiness. I would further prove biblically to you that you are gods. Hebrews 2: 8 confirms this claim as the self-evident truth. It is said that blindness is a bad thing, all powers are in you, but you do not come to this realization. "Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.” (Hebrews 2: 8) It is unfortunate that you have not realized that you are the power house of God. All the powers have been given to you, but you are yet to realise or utilise the power.
Jehovah God And His Christ Are In Firm Control Over All Things
It is a fact that Jehovah God and His Christ are in control over all situations in all the planes of manifest. They have to rule and reign over everything and put everything in the divine way. We should therefore not claim superiority over any person. We should stay peacefully with one another, showing absolute expression of love to one another. That is why this Kingdom tolerates no fighting or quarrelling. There is no man or woman, no young or old man, no black, white or coloured people. This Kingdom is a model of stability, joy, peace and happiness. There is no lighting of candles here, there is no beating of drums, and we don’t use incense and perfumes. We are to pool all our resources together for the common good of all the brethren. And at the end of it all, there would be joy and stability for the Father and His children. It is the responsibility of the Father to take care, and to protect all His children all over the world. A child would always take care of his father where he is thankful to the father for the good done to him. And since it is the Father who takes care of all His children, we therefore have to be grateful to the Holy Father.
This Gospel's Blessings Are Unique
I give thanks to the Father for having released this unique gospel message to the entire world. The Father has blessed those who write this gospel, the interpreter, and those who are to listen to this gospel are immensely blessed. Those who shall be associated in one way or the other in the production of this gospel for dissemination, and those who shall read and put same into practical application are greatly blessed. Those who believe in this gospel, the Father has blessed them, and this gospel message above all, has brought salvation into the entire universe. We have to resemble our Father, because usually a good child resembles his father. We have to listen to Him. We must love him and have faith and belief in Him. We have to put all our hope in Him. We do not have to be disorderly any longer. We should not constitute ourselves into busy bodies to hinder the progress of others who are using the spirit of their daily endeavours to foster the work of the Father in the vineyard. Let us leave all judgement and vengeance in the just and powerful hands of the Father. A child does not speak in parables.
When a child kills an animal in the bush, he is the owner of the animal while in the bush, but when the animal is taken home, it belongs to his father. When the Holy Spirit did not come, we had been disorderly and unholy in our lives; but now that the Holy Spirit has come, you have to put on godliness. You are very aware of the spiritual song we used to sing. "Spirit of the Lord come and lead us." It has been written that you will lead us. Henceforth, we should allow the Holy Spirit to be leading us in all aspects of our lives. If the spirit directs us in all our affairs, we shall have no problems. This is just the summary of what has been done during the week set aside by the Father through the Elder’s Week. The week has been a unique one in which the recondite wisdom of God has been expatiated unto His children. Brethren, I do not want to take you further; it is said that a stroke of the cane is enough for the wise, those who have ears to hear, let them hear. May God bless His Holy words, Amen.
THANK YOU FATHER!
