Taking a good look at masked people, do they not look like people from Mars –demons?
(…continued from part one…)
2) He must silence the Christians. They are the only people who can confront him. They wield an authority, against which he has no clue! They have Jesus. And Jesus has deftly placed the Holy Spirit inside them. “All they have to do,” the Antichrist understands, so very well, “is open their mouths and puissant words of authority pours forth in uncontrollable torrents, pulverizing all our strongholds.”
Congregational worship is most rewarding, most acceptable before Jehovah.
Keeping Christians out and away from their holy assemblage is a joy that knows no bounds in the malefic heart of Satan. Keeping them away from the effusive glossolalia is a huge accomplishment for the Antichrist. One of them kills a thousand, while through the miracle of inexplicable equation of mathematical theory, two of them will kill ten thousand! He knows what a thousand Christians will be capable of, not to mention the annihilating outcome of what a million of us will definitely do! He has been able to keep Christians quiet. “Pray where tens of you will not do our kingdom any harm,” is the stance of the enemy. How did he accomplish this? Simple.
Christians’ sleep –an enablement for the enemy to sow spiritual inconvenience.
Matthew 13:25 “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.” He sprayed the spirit of somnambulism and the church went limp.
What do I hear some Pastors say? “God wants us to take a rest.” Indeed! That cannot be true at all. I know what the Protocol says. “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” [Hebrews 10:25]. What is the word ‘forsaking’ in Greek? It is egkataleipo (eng-ka-ta-lei’-pō) meaning: ‘1. to leave behind in some place. 2. (in a good sense) let remain over. 3. (in a bad sense) to desert.’ Who says we should ‘desert’ the church, even for one church service day? We played into the hands of the government when we refused to do the scriptural requisiteness –playing the dual roles of the salt and the light of the world. The Church of Jesus went to sleep!‘Assembling’ is episunagoge (e-piy-sïn-a-ğō-ǰee’) ‘1. a complete gathering. 2. (especially) a Christian meeting (reoccurring for worship).’ The word‘together’ is the same episunagoge (e-piy-sïn-a-ğō-ǰee’) just as ‘assembling’. The only place Christians fellowship is done when they come together, and in the church auditorium, led by the Pastor of the local assembly.
The Household of God Church
Going to church, in the Apostolic Pauline couch, is an imperative one. It is a must to go to church. We attend church service not only to get spiritually refueled, but, also, to get our spiritual battery well charged for effective Christian life. Church attendance renews the ignition spark plug for effective spiritual combustion. Congregational worship is not only most rewarding, it is the most acceptable before the Thrice holy Jehovah!
Paul instructs, by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, that we should, as a matter of fact, increase the weekly number of church worship when the end of time draws near. This is actually the time Paul mentions in the holy writ. What rest are they blabbing about? Our rest is found only in Jesus, the LORD of the Sabbath! The Church is not praying enough. Reverend Chris Okotie says, “I don’t want to ask you (members of The Household of God Church) to give you an extra Church Service day (apart from Sundays & Wednesdays) of the week, so, what I’m doing is increase the amount of time we spend on each service day.” Before the coronavirus epidemic, he told Householders to maintain a certain quietude after each service, expecting us to leave the Church premises very quietly, not talking to anybody at all. About sixty percent –if not more, I believe— of us disobeyed. Who knows maybe God wanted to use the strict obedience of Householders to take better care of Nigeria, and by extension, the world? Who knows?

“But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.” Selah! It is not so late dear saints of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Is it by our might or our strength? Certainly not. The power of the word of God resides in us. The Holy Spirit cannot leave nor forsake us. The Goshen experience, that covered the children of Israel is our hope. By the reason of the promise of God which says, “And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee” (Exodus 15:26). “I will put none of these diseases upon thee” is our confession.
The Goshen experience protected Israel
What does this tell me? Every born-again child of God is a Living Goshen. Goshen means ‘approaching, drawing near;’ it has fresh water running through it for irrigation.’ Who draws near to us? Is it not Jesus, the Healer? Who is the Water running through us for strength? The Holy Spirit, of course. Are we alone in these trying times? The true answer is, “No.” Confess the truth and say, “I AM A LIVING GOSHEN.” Selah!
COVID-19 cannot hold you down if you are a Living Goshen!
Get born again by saying this simple prayer.
“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
