PROVOKE NOT THE WRATH OF GOD

 

By; Victory Izobofolo

I am very sorry that many believers do no longer have the spirit of God in them. They have the reputation as being alive but dead. They are carried away by the spirit of the world. They are inclined to the spirit of lies and they enjoy spreading it. Justifying with the scripture. Because the Lord has given them up, they are disconnected from His Spirit so do not have the spirit to discern what is true and false or what is right or wrong. They are counting on mortal man whose heart is far from God because of his political game in flattering the weak by speaking as a Christian.

That is how the antichrist is coming. He will flatter many to depend on Him. See how many today are seeking to know what the United Nation leader says or have to do. what the U.S.A president said or will say. Everyone is depending on what he says, relying on the super powers to save them. The heart of man or the ears are no longer seeking to know or hear God.

I feel very sad when people quote others for succeeding through protest, revolutions, sacrifices and the shedding of their blood. Is that the Spirit of Christ? It is Satanic, it is from the devil. Jesus was the last sacrificial lamp that shed His blood. When we pray we can enter into that freedom and into our heavenly blessings. I hear that many believers were protesting or were in support with the ungodly, Protesting with Juju, “Tahkubeng” secret traditional societies. I even saw a mad man also protesting. Believers have also become mad unbelievers and now think that they can get what they want in the spirit of the world. Repent and turn to God before it will be too late for you.

The wrath of God will fall on those who are led by and acting in the flesh, following the council of the ungodly to achieve something.
Hear what the Bible says; This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander. But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand.

They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish. They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.

With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning; they seduce the unstable; They have left the straightway and wandered off. These men are springs without water and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them.
For they mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to the lustful desires of sinful human nature, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error. They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity — for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him.

If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.

Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and, “A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.” 2 Peter 2:10-22.
For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17-18 For God’s [holy] wrath and indignation are revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who in their wickedness repress and hinder the truth and make it inoperative.

For that which is known about God is evident to them and made plain in their inner consciousness, because God [Himself] has shown it to them. For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiwork).

So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification].
Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools [professing to be smart, they made simpletons of themselves]. And by them the glory and majesty and excellence of the immortal God were exchanged for and represented by images, resembling mortal man and birds and beasts and reptiles.

Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin]. Because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen (so be it). [Jer 2:11.]

And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome, until they were filled (permeated and saturated) with every kind of unrighteousness, iniquity, grasping and covetous greed, and malice.

[They were] full of envy and jealousy, murder, strife, deceit and treachery, ill will and cruel ways. [They were] secret backbiters and gossipers, Slanderers, hateful to and hating God, full of insolence, arrogance, [and] boasting; inventors of new forms of evil, disobedient and undutiful to parents. [They were] without understanding, conscienceless and faithless, heartless and loveless [and] merciless. Though they are fully aware of God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them. Rom 1:18-31

OLD AGE TIME! REWARDS BOOM OR DOOM – CHOICE IS THE PRICE

By. Izobofolo’s blog

The youth, the elder and the aged are seasons of life that are irreversible!!! Inevitably programmed as fixed as heaven and hell, you cannot bribe or wish it away!

Laughter, actions and dreams are the few characteristics of youth aged; hesitancy, thoughtfulness, organization, handwork and decision-making are the hallmarks of the middle-aged; and indecision, caution, philosophizing and quietness are the betrayal signs of the old aged.

Old age regrets; “gone are the unrealized dreams, the laughter and impetuosity – they have given ways to indecision because of irredeemable mistakes of the past! The dreams are now shadows of the forgotten past, and the aged looks forward to a gloomy future! Phrases like; hopeless generation, useless and clueless generations are often heard from their dry lips.”

The aged don’t talk but groan as they watch the youth and middle-aged about to make the same stupid mistakes of the past, and realize with shock that nothing can be done to stop them!!

Alas! The vicious circle continues and everyone realizes the fact that life is a circle of life and death and they are inevitable!!

The good news is that Jesus broke the circle and made a way that the circle of life and death becomes a circle of life and life abundant!!! No matter your conditions, look up to God for redirection, comfort and life abundance.

If you care to know more about how Jesus broked the human life circle, ask me on; www.izobofolo.com.ng or theophilusizobofolo@gmail.com or 07068056521

God bless you.

AN ACCOUNT OF MY TRIP TO HEAVEN WITH JESUS: THE URGENT MESSAGE FROM THE MASTER

Pastor Newton Odafiateren

TESTIMONY OF A BROTHER WHO DIED AT A FELLOWSHIP CAMP GROUND BUT LATER SENT BACK BY JESUS WITH A MESSAGE.

I got a message today that not only greatly shook me to my very foundation, but also COMPELLED me, to re-examine my life HERE, in the light of ETERNITY! I plead with you to kindly go through.It might turn out to be the greatest favor you’ll ever do yourself here!
_____________________________________________________

By the special grace of God, I came across the gospel of Jesus Christ some years back. While confessing my sins on my knees in prayers, pleading for forgiveness with faith in the BLOOD of Jesus Christ, Jesus showed me mercy and saved my soul (I became born again). I pressed forward in prayers; He sanctified my soul and later baptized me with the Holy Ghost and fire. On Thursday, July 30, 2015, I heard an audible voice that said to me, “You will embark on a journey from which you might either return or not.” This happened right in the Tabernacle while I was praying on my knees, just immediately after the Faith Clinic by my District Superintendent (DS) during the Worker’s Conference that preceded the recently concluded annual camp meeting of The Apostolic Faith Church at Faith City, Igbesa, Ogun State, Nigeria. Thereafter, I began to have some strange feelings of sickness in my body that made people to ask what happened to me. In faith, I replied, “All is well.” At 12:02am on Sunday, August 2, 2015 as I was sleeping in the dormitory where I was lodged, an unseen hand woke me up and I heard the same audible voice again, this time telling me to go to the tabernacle to pray.

At this time, I was so sick and feeling as though my head was spilt into two. Owing to this, I started whispering some prayers as I lay down. After much reluctance on my part, I heard the same voice again saying, “Go to the Tabernacle and I will heal you.” In obedience, I managed to get up and went to the tabernacle. On getting there, I wrote a prayer request asking God for healing. I had no strength to kneel down again but could only manage to lie down at the altar to pray. I beckoned to a nearby usher to get me any minister of God around to pray for me. At that point, it seemed the end had come. I remembered the usher came back alone, knelt down beside me and started praying for me. (It was after the whole incident, the usher later narrated to me he did that at the bidding of the minister he saw and that on his way back to me he heard the audible voice of Jesus that I sustained satanic arrows attack). As he was praying for me I realized my strength was reducing and my voice going down gradually as I was answering “Amen” till I could not utter anymore word. That was all I remembered while I was here.

Then I discovered I (my spirit) was moved out of my body; and as my spirit stood up, I saw my body lying down flat on the floor with shot arrows before my body. As I turned away from my body, I saw the Lord Jesus standing beside me, full of glory and was wearing a glowing face, so glowing that I could not look at His face. He told me to look into the darkness at western part of the tabernacle (West Pavilion side). I saw some people inside the darkness shooting arrows to my body that was lying on the floor (then I realized the sickness was as a result of the attack). I then anxiously asked Him who those firing these arrows were, but He told me I did not have to know them. In a twinkling of an eye, we were out of the tabernacle and in a very different atmosphere; the place was filled with glory: beautiful houses, awesome scenery, more than words could express. I immediately knew we were in Heaven. Jesus then took me to a very beautiful house that I can not describe with words. That was the second time He would take me to that particular house. (The first incident was on an earlier account when He took me to Heaven). There I saw people that wore white garment like myself moving toward the other side of Heaven together with me.

Then I came to a river in front of me, and as I tried to cross over, I could not while others that were wearing same white garment did freely. The more I tried to, the more difficult it became and Jesus was looking at me. That prompted me to request Jesus to let me cross over. But He said in His response that “those that crossed over can not come back to the earth”. I then started pleading with Him to let me cross the river so that I would not come back to earth in order to escape the pains and struggles I was going through on earth. Then, the Lord Jesus told me He would not allow my corpse to be taken back home from camp meeting so that my demise may not drive people away from Him. At this time, I did not remember I have a wife, children or any earthly possessions. When Jesus would not permit me in spite of my persistent pleading to let me cross over, I reminded Him of my sufferings on earth. That was when Jesus then told me He permitted everything to happen to me. (Things have been so rough for me generally from my childhood and that continued even after I met Christ; from one battle to the other).

The Lord Jesus went further to quote Revelation 13:7, “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindred, and tongues, and nations.” To my joy, He also added Revelation 12:11, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” After realizing the seriousness of His stand not to let me over, I asked for the Late Rev. Soyinka, the second Africa Overseer of The Apostolic Faith Church. He replied, “That is my true servant and in here (Heaven) with me”. I further asked of our third Africa Overseer, the Late Rev. Paul Akazue. He told me he is equally with Him in Heaven, but having sustained injury, He had to take him early in order for His work not to suffer.

In another twinkling of an eye, we were back in the Tabernacle on the campground and the Lord took me to different lodging centers for campers. Our first place of visit was the lodging place of my DS where we met him praying on his knees in the night (this gladdened my heart). We left there for the lodging dormitory upstairs, above the “Information Centre” where I was lodged with other ministers. We met people sleeping physically, but many, according to Jesus, were more deeply asleep spiritually. Jesus pointed to my pastor who was physically sleeping but not asleep spiritually and said; “he is mine”. We thereafter found ourselves (Jesus and I) back in the Tabernacle. Meanwhile, we never walked to any of those places we went to, the movement was at the speed of thought. There were people praying very fervently in the Tabernacle but the Lord Jesus said something very sad. He said people were not ready for His coming. I was surprised at that and now asked about those people that were praying. In His response, He said MANY OF THEM ARE INSIDE THE HOUSE AND CRYING TO HIM FOR RESCUE WHILE THEY ARE DENYING HIM ACCESS TO DO THE RESCUE BY LOCKING THE DOOR OF THE ROOM WHILE HE (JESUS) IS WAITING OUTSIDE TO DELIVER THEM BUT COULD NOT ENTER SINCE THE DOOR IS LOCKED.

Jesus also added that people today are particular about “all these things” that He promised would be added effortlessly if they would seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness. (Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”). He went further to say many had their names initially written in the Book of Life but because of the cares and pursuits of the things of this world, they forget to prepare for His coming, and their names are removed from the Book of Life. They do not remember HOME again but are rather praying for earthly things, “all these things”, while forgetting to continually “seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness”. Interestingly, He said He still have few who are renewing and retaining their names in the Book of Life daily by washing in His blood. He now added that all things are set in Heaven for His coming but only few are ready; just like a drop of water in a bowl. Jesus then specifically said He is sending me back to the world for a particular purpose: to tell people that *HIS COMING IS VERY, VERY IMMINENT AND AS A MATTER OF FACT LESS THAN ‘1 HOUR’*. He also gave me a particular message for my wife (that was the moment I remembered I was married and had children). I then replied Jesus that how would that be, since I am not a pastor, neither an overseer nor a man of many words? The Lord Jesus replied and said He would back me up whenever and wherever I am to give the testimony. Jesus added that there would be three categories of people that would listen to my testimony.

The first would hear the word and spread it, the second group will hear and amend their ways and He will save them, the third group will disregard the warning and perish. Jesus Christ was greeting and congratulating me but I did not answer since I was not happy just because He wanted me to come back. Having noticed that in me, HE said, “I will be with you.”At last Jesus asked me to return to my body that was lying on the floor on the altar in the Tabernacle. As I was reluctant, He instructed me the second time and I entered. That was when I woke up and started crying. I was still seeing Jesus Christ standing as I stood up physically and I noticed the headache and the whole sickness had disappeared. Jesus Christ later vanished from my sight while I was sharing the testimony with the same usher that prayed with me. I traveled back home to Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria that very Sunday. I was surprised to later hear that my DS said in his sermon that very day that Jesus told him the name of many have been removed from the Book of Life but promised to deliver them if they would repent and pray.

It was also mentioned in his subsequent words of admonition during the camp meeting that many are half-dead spiritually and pursuing material things in their prayers. This confirms the spirit of God to be one. IT COULD HAPPEN IN A MOMENT FROM NOW. If you haven’t given your life to Christ, or already derailed in your focus, there is no better time than NOW to make amend and right the wrongs! Please pray and make a decision today. Which of the three groups you want to belong? I plead with you to please be part of those that will amend their ways and also partake in sharing the message. Please do not keep this message to yourself, help share with as many people as you come across in all platforms.

*REMEMBER, WE DON’T HAVE TIME ANYMORE*
