But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
SEQ CHAPTER \h \r 1I AM THE ONE
The Holy Fathers Gospel delivered on the occasion of the anniversary of His Birthday - December 30, 1999.
PREAMBLE:- What we have today is a message of joy, glad tidings of great joy, such joy that is unlimited. The joy that has neither a beginning nor an end. In whichever way we are able to express this joy, it must be expressed because all things have been accomplished, and our problems are over. Amen.
SO HEAR THE WORD OF GOD!
REVELATION 11: 15-18 15: And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign forever and ever.
16: And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshiped God, 17: Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18: And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
Believe in the gospel of this day because it is the onus upon which Gods life lies, the life of this world lies, the sustenance of the world lies. I want you to realize that the scriptures stand to be the truth. And the word of God cannot be faltered.
The Bible has spoken of a virgin giving birth to a child. This other issue has to do with a woman bringing forth a man child. And the gospel of this day which you are going to hear, which is not very lengthy, summarizes everything. It is the basis of life. Listen to it, assimilate it, appreciate it, and express your joy to its fullest because our joy is full.
FIRST BIBLE LESSON: MATTHEW 1:20-23But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying,
Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21: And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22: Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23: Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.SECOND BIBLE LESSON: REVELATION 12:1-5And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3: And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4: And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5: And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.GOLDEN TEXT: REVELATION 11:15-18And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign forever and ever. 16: And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshiped God, 17: Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18: And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
1. A child is born unto us, a child and the king of glory of God is born unto us.
2. The lamb of God is born unto us.
I do not intend to give vision or to preach, I do not intend to belabor you, but I intend to rekindle your faith, restructure, remold and reaffirm your faith once again. And I also want to restate the duty of God, His Mission on earth, and the things He has come to do. A lot of people have fallen short of this information, and as a result of that they get scared. The Spiritual songs say: A child is born unto us, the king of the glory of God is born unto us and the second one says, The lamb of God is born unto us.
The first gospel says, A child is born to us, a child and the king of glory of this earth is born unto us. The second says, The lamb of God is born to us. These two summarize the glory of God which is manifest today.
That which we have for you is good tidings of great joy which should be received. The coming of God into the world has been misconstrued and misunderstood. People do not know His mission and his functions. These are the things I intend to dwell upon now.
Whenever God interacts with you, whether in the dream state or through telepathy, and passes information to you, listen attentively to what His instructions are. When you get up, if it was a dream situation, do exactly what God has directed. Act as He has informed. Wherever He has stopped, do not go beyond that. The things He did not say, do not add. If you do so, it means you have failed. No person can do a thing of his own volition except God in heaven gives approval. Our problem is as a result of the fact that we have fallen short as far as listening to the word of God is concerned, and we have not also taken notice of the things that God has directed should be done.
A lot of people have always queried rhetorically why did Moses not step his feet on the land of promise, of Canaan. And some have concluded that perhaps it is because Moses exhibited annoyance, anger beyond what God expected. As a result of that he did not step his feet on the land of promise. But I want you to understand that your assertions and your assumptions are not right. The fact is this: that was where the Holy Spirit started and stopped. And Moses would not have stepped beyond the bounds of the Holy Spirit.
Others have queried why was John the Baptist killed. And I want you to understand that John the Baptist was the forerunner of our Lord Jesus Christ. He came and did exactly what was expected of him. And having concluded that assignment, it was meant for him to take his leave. Right from that very day our Lord Jesus Christ was revealed through his actions which God had directed, the duty, and assignment of John the Baptist was concluded. He was to take his leave.
The question now arises, why was Our Lord Jesus Christ hanged on the cross? Why was he killed? The answer is simply that he was the sacrificial lamb. He was to be sacrificed as the sacrificial lamb so that his brethren would be saved. And he did exactly that. Hallelujah, hallelujah, Hosanna Three happy cheers.
Brethren, I want you to understand that every person has his assignment and duties designated. And the duties of persons have limitations. There is a boundary where it begins and where it ends. Peoples wisdom and knowledge, perceptions and understandings have beginnings and they have an end.
But the one whom we are talking about, whom we are going to read about, the one we are sermonizing about, has neither a beginning nor an end. His life is unlimited. His abilities, his powe
