Towards the end of the year 2006, as I was reading a passage in the Bible, the Holy Spirit paused me and explained to me something that was a bit different from what I was reading in Proverbs 12:28.
“In the way of righteousness there is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.”
The Holy Spirit put it this way:
“In the way of righteousness there is life; beside the pathway there is death.”
This led to the birth of “The Pathway To Righteousness”.
That same year, I made a decision that affected the rest of my life. Two scorpions bit me in a dream and my right great toe was swollen when I woke up. God later explained to me it was He who did it and the reason He did it was because I’ve been sleeping too much and it’s time for me to wake up from my sleep. He told me He’s giving me a different assignment in 2007.
All well said, 3 years have passed by and I thought I was doing the will of my Father. When He looked that I was still not acting according to His own will, towards the end of the year 2009, He came down physically to cleanse and teach me so I could cleanse and teach others. It was then I knew I was actually heading to Hellfire. It wasn’t easy, but I thank God today.
If you are the sleeping type, this is the time for you to wake up. Many of you are not destined for secular work; however, because you’re thinking how you will survive without going to work, you are where you are right now. Do not wait until God will take away all He has given to you before you will rise up. Many of you are getting old, not getting younger and you know there is a call of God upon your life. What are you doing about it? If you think you will get there so easily, I have good news for you: Your adversary – Satan will use all his power to prevent you from getting there, doing the work of God.
Sometime ago, I met somebody who is highly anointed, but was under satanic bondage. Satan spoke to me face to face that I must work hard for me to take this one away from him. It required a lot of hard work really. If you think God is going to usher you to your place of greatness just like that, friend, you are a joker. Stand up and cleanse yourself! This is the time for you to rise up. Some of you have grey hair already and this is either a sign of old age or a sign of overloading oneself with the things of this Earth. You must rise up and pursue your calling this year. It will not be easy, but you will get there. I am appealing to you right now, stand up! Cleanse yourself quickly so you too can cleanse others.
“In the way of righteousness there is life; beside the pathway there is death”
If we look at what is going on in our churches today, we will see clearly, there is no difference between believers and unbelievers. The way Christians live their lives is not different from the way unbelievers live. When God chose the nation of Israel, He chose them to be examples of life. Judaism from which Christianity derived was a hard religion. If you read the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Bible) putting aside the book of creation (Genesis) and the book of repetition of the Law (Deuteronomy), you will be left with the so called “Book of Law” (Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers). If you read through these books, you will see many things that will scare you to death. All these are just what the writers of these books could write because many scary incidents happened which they ventured not to write down. Deuteronomy Chapter 28 that most of us know as a passage of blessings, the curses pronounced there were more than the blessings because verses 1 – 13 cover only the blessings, while verses 15 – 68 cover the curses, and verse 14 sounds a bit of warning. Originally, Deuteronomy Chapter 28 derived from Leviticus Chapter 26. Before the departure of Moses the Arthur, he called the Israelites together again to let them know what God expects from them in the land that He’s taking them to. Through this explanation and more revelation from God, this is why Deuteronomy Chapter 28 is a bit longer than Leviticus Chapter 26. Otherwise, they are both the same. Many of us tend to take the New Testament as the only Word we have. Without the Old Testament there is no New Testament. Our lives on this Earth began from Genesis. The way God spoke in the past is the same way He speaks today. He could speak to a nation through many people at a time. This is what He did with Israel and Judah. According to the grace given to me, I am privileged to be part of those who can hear Him speak; not only Him, but Three of Them – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and to know the difference between Them All. Nobody knows God, and you only know whatever He revealed to you, for it is written in Deuteronomy 29:29 that, “The secret things belong to God and the things revealed belong to us and our children forever.” If we are to reach our destination – Heaven, we must let our lives take a U-turn now before it’s too late. As each year comes and goes, as far as I know, death is knocking on many people’s doors and for you not to be part of this, you must allow your life to take a U-turn.
God chose us Christians to be the light of the world. We are the ones to whom He revealed Himself. We are the ones to whom He showed the mystery of His Kingdom. Everyone on this Earth is meant to seek His knowledge through us. In fact, we carry the Father and His Kingdom inside us wherever we go. He chose us to be an example of life. He expects us to stand out no matter what the situation may be. If we are to succeed in our Christian race, we must learn to abide by His rules this year and always. The motto of Christians has become “If you can’t beat them, join them.” Friends, I don’t want to be like any man. I want to be like Jesus alone. I do not need the approval of any man, how I go about God’s business. Everything we read in the Bible was written by men like you and me, who were inspired by the Holy Spirit. They needed not the approval of any man before they went about their mission. If Jeremiah had waited for the approval of men, he wouldn’t have suffered the way he suffered and he wouldn’t have been successful the way he was successful in his ministry. Whatever God lays in your heart, you don’t need the approval of any man to carry it out. This is where many of us miss it. We don’t want people to mock us; we don’t want people to call us names; we don’t want to suffer. Amos was not a practiced prophet, though created to be a prophet; he was a farmer and a shepherd who tended flocks. It was where he was tending the flock that the Almighty God spoke to him to prophesy against the people of Israel. This he explained to Amaziah when he accused him - see (Amos 7:12-17). No matter what you do for your living, God can use you from there. You can be a dirty cleaner like me; He alone knows what is best for your life. The little that God gives me to share, I will share it in my own little way and whoever likes should criticize me. As long as there is Heaven behind me, I am satisfied.
We can see clearly in our world today that men and women of God have shifted away and continually run God’s business just as the people of the world want. The Bible says in John 4:23 that, “God’s worshippers will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.” God looks into the heart, and He continually judges us daily according to what is in our heart. Though we live in a world that is not perfect, but He expects us to be perfect for it is written in Matthew 5:48 that, “Be perfect just as your Heavenly Father is perfect.” The Bible says again in James 1:27 that, “Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” No matter what kind of situation of life we may find ourselves, God expects us to stand out and continually live for Him alone until the appointed time, when He will sort us out.
If we take a good look at the above diagram, we can see white and black boxes. This is a broad road and represents the world we live. The white colour represents righteousness while the black on both sides represents darkness. The arrow in the middle of the white path is the centre point of the road. If you stay in the middle of the road, then you are on a safe side, far from principalities and powers. But if you move more to your right or to your left, you are dancing towards the danger zone.
“……. Beside the pathway there is death”
When you live in darkness, you are dead. There is no life in you at all, and you are under the control of Satan. The question is this: “Where do I stand?” Many of us believe we are in right standing with God, but we have not really taken time to check ourselves. As I said earlier, until late 2009, I’ve been preaching and conducting deliverance for people. I thought I was doing it right. However, deep inside me, I knew some of the things I was doing were wrong, but continued like everybody and constantly asked for forgiveness from Christ. Even when my Father came down physically and started teaching me, it wasn’t easy. It was fire! Satan would not let go simply because of the family I came from and my past sins. I confessed all my sins and re-baptised, yet, Satan would not let go simply because I wasn’t just like every other man. He would not let go! He knew the categories of human beings my Father created and whenever he sees anyone that belongs to the top category, he would hunt him until the grave. This was exactly what he did to Moses and this was exactly what He did to me as well. However, I didn’t know myself in time. He did the same thing to our Lord Jesus Christ as well. Because Mary and Joseph were cautious of their lives and taught Jesus Christ at the early age, Satan couldn’t see anything to hunt Him down. Despite all this, he still tempted Him simply because of the food He ate on this Earth. This was why my Lord went for forty days and night fasting. This has been Satan’s practice with every chosen of my Father, especially those who carry the cup. The earlier you know who my Father created you to be the better for you. It was until my Father asked me again to confess all my sins to somebody whom I trained and re-baptised again, that was when I began to have peace. Yet, that was not all; it was gradual. This was exactly the same thing that happened to Moses. This cleansing is now the ordinance my Father gave to me, to cleanse others through confession of their sins and lead them back to Him. Until you confess all your sins to God in the present of holy servant of God, the demons are still there and will not let go. This is exactly what led many Christians to Hellfire, including many pastors, because of their past sins. If you die and get to the Gate of Judgement, the Angels who are the Judges will see the demons in you immediately. With all these, Heaven will reject you. All the Christians and servants of God some people saw in Hellfire and brought back reports, this was exactly what led them there and many of you don’t believe.
Many of us still live in sin and claim we are there. We are liars. What we are doing is this: “Let me just do it once more and ask for forgiveness.” Because we know that Jesus will always forgive us, we live in this way. Let me tell you another news. If you continually live this way, you will think because Jesus Christ has forgiven you and that is all, you do yourself more harm than good. What happens to the demon you invited, because any sin you commit, you invite another demon to come into your life? If you ask Jesus Christ to forgive you, what happens to the demon? Until you open your mouth and vomit the food you ate, the demon will not go. Moreover, before he goes, you might have suffered a lot. You cannot just open your mouth and confess secretly, you must confess to God in the presence of a holy servant of God. This is the rule! Many servants of God are battling with this kind of thing presently. This is why many of you are confused whenever some people brought report back from Hellfire. It is real!
“……. Beside the pathway there is death”
Because of the sin of Adam and Eve, God gave every man on this Earth chance to become whatever he wants to become. It wasn’t planned this way originally. In fact, right now, you’re free to do whatever you want to do and be whatever you want to be. However, there is a consequence for every man’s action. It is written in I Corinthians 10:23 that, “All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify.” Inasmuch all things are lawful, but not all things are profitable, this denotes that not all things have a good reward. It is better for a man to pursue what will benefit him by the end of the day. Food is food; however, if you eat some foods, they will give you kwashiorkor. Whatever you do, you must be ready to face the consequence. You may do many things on this Earth and the rulers of this Earth may not even look at you that you’ve done something wrong, however, there is somebody lurking in the corner, watching every of your action, who will later punish you for it. Therefore, if you pursue righteousness, you will receive the reward of righteousness.
Daniel and his friends were taken to Babylon as slaves. They preferred to eat just vegetable leaves than defile themselves. Why? Because they feared the God of Heaven. Were they the only ones taken as slaves? Were they the only Hebrew youths taken to the king’s palace? However, they chose to abstain from the king’s choice food than defile themselves. You also can do the same thing. Not all roads can be trod successfully. No matter how smart you think you are, remember that somebody is there who is smarter than you and you know who that person is.
King David was a man after God’s heart. While he was a youth, he killed a lion and a bare barehanded because God was with him. His predecessor sought his life, but was kept alive because God was with him. Throughout Israel’s territory, no king could stand against him because God was with him. However, when he craved for the food he loved to eat, in the house of Uriah, he paid dearly for it. Until the day of his death, he never had peace. He never knew he would be in trouble through his craving for wives. No matter how God loves you, if the things of this Earth carry you away, you will pay dearly for it. My Father has used many men like me on this Earth before. He even used many of them to write the Bible. He has revealed to me mysteries, which He hasn’t revealed to any man since the foundation of this Earth. Why? Because He chose to! He gave me the privilege to know the difference between Himself, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit. In fact, He revealed to me things deeper than this. Nevertheless, this also places me on a dangerous ladder. If I should use this as a license to go on my own way, I know exactly what my end will be. Some times ago, He told me if I dare go on my own way, He will eliminate me and I will be nowhere in history, meaning, nowhere in Heaven or Earth or the Dark-Planet will I exist ever again. He will wipe me out completely. To whom much is given, much is also expected. Why am I saying this? If you think God is using you and you allow anything to carry you away, you do yourself harm. When the consequence comes, you cannot wait for it because you will pay bitterly.
Lucifer was a loving Son of my Father. In the whole Heaven, He was the next after Jesus Christ. In fact, He and Jesus Christ grew up together. When this Earth was created, He worked tirelessly and my Father rewarded Him. When He touched what my Father asked Him not to touch, He lost his seat and position in Heaven. He became a wanderer on this Earth. Since six-thousand-years now, he’s been wandering the Earth. This set everlasting example for everybody both in Heaven, on Earth, and on the Dark-Planet that, no matter how The Almighty God loves you, hence you go on your own way, you will pay bitterly for it.
In everything you do, there is a reward for you by the end of the day either good or bad. “Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done." (Revelation 22:12). “Our righteousness will be credited to us and our wickedness will be charged against us.” (See Ezekiel 18:20c). Every sin we commit is an act of wickedness towards The Almighty God. For you to be a friend of the Almighty, you must learn to flee from sin. If you want to be successful in your Christian race, walk only along the middle of that road. Then, you can rest assured that you are far above principalities and powers. If you live the life of “it does not matter”, you will know it matters one day.
Walk only in the middle of that road. Turn not neither to the left nor to the right. Look not neither to your left nor to your right. Just follow the One who is leading you – Jesus Christ. If you look towards the darkness on your right or left, the master of darkness – Satan will lure you to stumble.
There are so many distractions in the world, do not join them. Live for your Father alone and He will lift you up in His own time. There are many deceivers out there, do not follow their life pattern. They are mad, they are insane; they believe in the Gospel but deny its power. Their end will be what their actions deserve. The day you made up your mind to serve Jesus, nobody forced you, and nobody blindfolded you. It was your own choice and your choice alone. Make up your mind this year to be successful in your worship unto God – in Spirit and in Truth alone. Remember, “Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." (Matthew 7:13-14). As you make your decision to please Him this year, may He give you the grace to continually be in His presence daily.
