EXTRACT FROM ANCIENT
(TREATISE OF THE VESSELS)
The treatise of the vessels is a Hebrew text that claims to reveal where treasures from King Solomon's temple were hidden, and discusses the fate of the Ark of the Covenant. The text says, “The Ark, along with other treasures, shall not be revealed until the day of the Messiah, son of David…Putting it out of reach of any would be treasure seeker”.

This publication describes the beginning of a great journey by the Laminated Personality in our midst on December 30, 1992 which culminated into the production of this relic compilation—BRIDAL COMPENDIUM. It is a reflection of collection of quotes/nuggets from magnificent speeches, numerous messages, and publications, more importantly, from the thundering sermons by Apostle Peter Odoemena, The Very Son of Man, the Elohim presently in our midst. It touches on all vital issues covering human existence which promotes new learning, enveloped with the present truth and clarity of reasoning. Much of the quotes, sayings and messages in this publication authored by the Son of Man stimulate people into questioning the accepted philosophical points of view about nature, creation and science and also have a very profound effect on the development of human mind. This positive and realistic information helps in providing progressive thinkers with an armoury of information and opinion with which to counter the forces of religious reactions represented by the church and other false religious gatherings. He has radically altered man's way of thinking by the originality of His messages. This compilation may go against a universal belief which has rendered believers destitute of the truth. The book is arranged in alphabetical order and each with illuminating and inspiring quotes which are all rooted in facts that are verifiable. As His messages have been orbiting the earth through the website, many people have come to realize that the personality involved is not an ordinary being but Almighty God Himself, moving on His two feet on this earth surface, talking and revealing His Divine Presence. This compilation, like Diamond, is a symbol of life, a mirror of humanity and a searchlight of human conscience. We hope that this publication will be received with interest and enthusiasm.
Bishop Fryde Okoh
The Supreme Intelligence, Apostle Peter Odoemena, the very Son of Man, has made the compilation of this outstanding book: The Bridal Compendium, possible. The Compendium engenders all the elect (children) of God in this dispensation a realistic encounter with the Resurrected Body whose laid down teachings and doctrines are uniquely balanced and are deeply accessible. The Son of Man practices what He preaches and makes His messages global and accessible through the Internet. An in-depth and careful study reawakens the readers to a renewed “belief” in God who is the Lord God Almighty, the Son of Man. The Compendium provides an excellent, robust, realistic foundation for authentic and reinvented belief in God as a man, walking on His two feet, as a mortal being, though Immortal, existing among mortal beings. It challenges human attitudes and provides sound responses to the gullible Christian (religious) minds. Bridal Compendium – the alert, the El Dorado, the juggernaut, the quintessential, the paradoxical, the metaphorical, the antithetical and the critical use of the mind and laid down teachings – will be a highway to receptive Godliness. Taking leads from William Marion Branham, the Son of Man surefootedly plots the true path here. This book should be, and I voraciously believe, will be widely read. The Son of Man reminds us in this excellent book that what we need is not understanding Him, but simply believing, obeying, conding, relying, and trusting in His righteousness, seeing we have none of our own. Reading and believing in the Bridal Compendium will set you on your way to rekindled and renewed mind that unadulterated belief in the Son of Man instils in an individual, leading to heartfelt joy and acceptance in God Almighty. I highly recommend this life transforming and mind changing book! Bridal Compendium is a bracing gust of fresh air in a stale and musty room that has not been aired in a generation or more. In this book, the teachings, doctrines, code of conduct and above all, the revelations of the Resurrected Body are lucidly made manifest. And the result is a direct challenge to the intellectual sloppiness and recalcitrance that are so characteristic of our time. Do you wish you could feel more deeply about things you know are true? Has it been a while since you were moved to tears at the thought of your salvation? It is not mysterious. Those who feel deeply about the true God of their dispensation are those who are privileged to have Him in person dwelling among them. In these pages, the Son of Man will convince you that believing and trusting in Him alone, is the sturdy foundation for a permanent cure for our easily misguided beliefs of our past. If you want to feel profoundly, learn to believe tenaciously and start by reading this book!
Pastor Ugochukwu Okeugo
R. N. Nunshi, in his work, “World Famous Quotations”, quoted Disraeli 1 thus : “The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages are perpetuated by quotation”. He equally cited Winston Churchill: “It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations”.
It is indeed a good thing for the unenlightened, the enslaved, the mentally and spiritually poor, the ignorant, to read quotations of the wise and prudent, whose wisdom is founded upon the fear of God and wisdom of God, based upon the knowledge of the Truth, the Almighty God.
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding”. Prov. 9:10 (KJV). “And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding”. Job 28:28 (KJV). “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth forever”. Psalms 111:10 (KJV).
The Scripture says that it is better a wise man reprimands me than a fool sing my praise. “It is better to have wise people reprimand you than to have stupid people sing your praises”. Eccl. 7:5 (GNB).
It is very necessary that we introduce the Personality whose Words are put down here for all mankind. Introducing Him is not easy and can never be done in a word or exhaustively for that means introducing God in a word or exhausting God which is IMPOSSIBLE! However, we say like the Apostle John in St John's Gospel chapter 20:30- 31.
“And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name” John 20:30-31 (KJV).
A resumé of the Personality, The Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, is herein recorded. Patiently go through it so that you know He whose words you are reading so you can believe these words to have your life transformed.
A BRIEF LIFE STORY OF THE SON OF MAN, APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA
Apostle Peter Odoemena, The Son of Man, was born on 27 December, 1955 into the Umuhide kindred of Odoemena in Umukohie village of Uvuru in Abor Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State. Umukohie village of Uvuru Mbaise is a remote village in the tropical rain forest zone of South East Nigeria in West Africa, not far from Onitsha, the home town of Zik of Africa who was born on 16 November, 1904. His father, late Elder Peter Ohaeri Odoemena (Okwute) was a wood worker. His mother, late Catherine Onyenjam Ohaeri Odoemena, was a seamstress and a petty trader. He is the first of nine children – five males and four females. The family was very poor. Strange and unusual phenomena surrounded his birth. The late father knew and made it clear that the child was not ordinary and that he himself could not understand the happenings around his son. He narrated how he was visited in a dream by God who appeared to him like a great strange Being before the conception of the baby. The Being looked straight at him and told him of the coming male child. He did not panic but rejoiced in his heart on hearing this. This is scriptural. Abraham was visited by God who told him that his wife, Sarah, would conceive and bear a son even in her old age. “And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him. Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also? And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.” Gen. 18:9-14 (KJV). Manaoh's wife was visited by God and was told that she would conceive and bear the child who would deliver Israel from the hands of the Philistines. “And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son. Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing: For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.” Judges 13:2-5. (KJV). Zacharia was visited by the Angel Gabriel who told him that his wife, Elizabeth would conceive and bear a son who would be named John – a prophet to prepare the way of the Lord. “There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years. And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course, According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense. And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.” Luke 1:5-13 (KJV). Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, was also visited and told she would 1 conceive and bear a son who should be called Jesus. She was told the child should be great and should be called the Son of the Highest. The Lord should give unto Him the Throne of His father David and He shall reign over the house of Jacob forever and of His kingdom, there shall be no end. “And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” Luke 1:26-35 (KJV). Then, Joseph the husband of Mary equally had the same experience when the same Angel appeared to him and told him not to fear to take unto him Mary his wife because what was conceived in her was of the Holy Ghost. “Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. But 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.” Matthew 1:19-20 (KJV). It is therefore very clear that whenever God would appear on earth in any generation, there would be prophecies, predictions and the family God is coming to must be informed. God does not take them by surprise.
When the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena was born, the heavens 1 emitted a golden glow declaring His divine authority and Kingship over the entire earth. This startled all that trooped into the compound to receive the new born baby. They were perplexed, they could not understand the divine radiation coming from the baby as there was the full spark of supernatural presence in His Personality which manifested with the unspeakable joy of the Almighty God. The late father of the Son of Man, Elder Peter Ohaeri, made it clear that from conception, they were aware of the mysterious Being ready to appear on the earth. When He nally arrived, the father said, “I, His earthly father cannot declare what He is made up of. All I am aware is that a divine child was given to me to look after”. In one of our camp meetings in December, 1997, when I interviewed the father of the Son of Man, Elder Peter Ohaeri, he said, “All I know is that He is my son. the strange things you are seeing happening around Him are strange to me also. I am seeing them as you are seeing them.” As a result of the revelation given to the father about his coming son, His father gave Him the name, Oshimiri ata-ata (the ocean that never runs dry). Of course, His physique showed a healthy, plumpy baby with a very good looking face radiating innocence, hope, courage, and virtue. Of course, the name, Oshimiri ata-ata, connotes these attributes. When growing up, He had serious challenges. He did not speak on time. Like Moses, He was slow of speech and stammered. Yet, these days, His oratory cannot be equalled once it comes to the things of God (Spiritual matters). Hence, He has preached over ten thousand th (10,000) messages since He was revealed among us on 30 December, 1992. He grew up and was filled with wisdom, having favour with man. His wisdom marvelled all.
He had his primary education at a Roman Catholic Mission School, St. Mary's Catholic School, Uvuru, Mbaise. Late Chief Lazarus Ahaneku 1 was his headmaster. He passed the entrance examination into Faith Tabernacle College, Okpala, another mission school owned and controlled by Faith Tabernacle Church. It was the only Faith Tabernacle College in the whole of West Africa. That was in the then East Central state of Nigeria with Ukpabi Asika as the Administrator of East Central State. When Government took over schools, the school was renamed Okpala Secondary School. It is worthy to note that former President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, was in the same class and the same school with the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena. Both had similar poor family backgrounds, borrowing shoes since they had none to put on. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan was a big encouragement to him since both were indigent students. He won the award for the best disciplined student of the graduating class in 1977.
CHALLENGES IN CHILDHOOD
It should be recalled that His (Son of Man's) life as a child was filled with life threatening challenges. One of such was when he had a domestic accident when he was trying to pluck fruit from a tree and a sharp pointed stick fell on, and pierced his head. He was taken to Emekuku Hospital, Imo State, where he nearly died. His mother abandoned him in the hospital and ran away when his condition become too critical. Almighty God saved His life because God always protects His gift in any vessel. The Lord God Almighty started dealing with Him from infancy, hence he was born dumb. From birth, a strange being has always appeared to him. Each time he played with his playmates and the strange being appeared, he would run away. This made his parents hand him over to his great grandmother for protection. He was also born blind. However, each time the Lord would want him to read, he will read, even till this day. This has been verified and confirmed by many specialist expatriate and indigenous ophthalmologists. One said before other expatriate colleagues at Marist Brothers Specialist Hospital at Uturu in Abia State, that “THIS IS ACASE STUDY”
HIS EXPLOITS DURING THE NIGERIAN CIVILWAR
The Nigerian Civil war broke out on 6 July, 1967. Due to His courage and dogged determination to deliver His people, He joined the Biafran Army in the “Boys company” regimen who were to gather intelligence 1 for the regular troops. This was when He was very tender, a little above eleven (11) years. He rose through the ranks and became a captain. He saved the entire village from total extermination by the Nigerian Army. He provided food, water etc that the entire village needed. He was actually a Deliverer to His people just as Moses was to the Jews when they were in Egypt. 23 “When Moses was forty years old, he decided to find out how his 24 fellow Israelites were being treated. He saw one of them being mistreated by an Egyptian, so he went to his help and took revenge on 25 the Egyptian by killing him. (He thought that his own people would understand that God was going to use him to set them free, but they 26 did not understand.) The next day he saw two Israelites fighting, and he tried to make peace between them. 'Listen, men,' he said, 'you 27 are fellow Israelites; why are you fighting like this?' But the one who was mistreating the other pushed Moses aside. 'Who made you 28 ruler and judge over us?' he asked. 'Do you want to kill me, just as 29 you killed that Egyptian yesterday?' When Moses heard this, he fled from Egypt and went to live in the land of Midian. There he had two sons. Acts. 7: 23-29. (GNB). However, just as Moses was rejected, He was rejected by the community because of His intelligence, divine wisdom and talent. They rejected sponsoring Him in school when He qualified to be given scholarship by the community. He was thrust out of the community. The war ended in 1970. He served as a houseboy to a wealthy man, Chief Iloaku of Ogbunike, Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State, Nigeria. He played football for some club sides like the then P and T Vasca Dagama of then East Central State. He proved His prowess in the field of play and outclassed all the other players.
When He passed School Certificate Examination in 1977, He gained employment with Federal Ministry of Labour, Employment and Productivity as a junior staff – an accounts clerk. This took him to many parts of the country – Lagos, Northern part of Nigeria, then Eastern part of Nigeria. He rose through the rank and file to become Director, the post He held when He retired in 2007. Now, the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena is working on His own as an industrialist. He believes and teaches that anybody that claims to be a man of God must work with his own hands, have a viable and visible means of livelihood and not milking and devouring the members with the pretext that such self-acclaimed men of God are on full time ministry! Can they be more full time than Jesus Christ? Can they be more full time than St. Paul? These all had their means of livelihood. Jesus Christ was a Carpenter. “And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and 2 his disciples follow him. And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty 3 works are wrought by his hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.” Mark 6:1-3 (KJV). “After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to 2 Corinth; And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came 3 unto them. And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.” Acts 18:1-3 (KJV). 34 “ Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.”Acts 20:34 (KJV). He rebukes laziness.
He got married to a virtuous woman, Nzubechi Odoemena, in 1988. The marriage is blessed with seven children - four girls and three boys: Ijeoma, Onyedikachi, Ebubechukwu , Chiamaka, Chibueze, Chukwudi and Chukwubuikem. He married just as Moses did. Marriage never stopped Moses from being God to the Israelites.
HIS DIVINE JOURNEY
Some of His experiences before He came into the Church at Nkpor in 1990.
On 31 December 1983, He warned His entire kindred to stop worshipping the idol they were worshipping. The people of the area would usually gather to celebrate on the 31 of December of every year into the 1 January of the coming year, an annual festival. The festival involved the people slaughtering chicken or goats. The people had already tethered the animals they would slaughter the following morning. He ordered them to release those animals and that if they insisted on going ahead to sacrifice, all the animals would die before first day break on 1 January of the following year. To the surprise of everybody, all the tethered animals died the following day according to His word and the people could not use them again to sacrifice to that idol. Those people that released their animals had their animals alive.
In 1984, while in Deeper Life Church still, He preached at Owerri, at a newspaper stand in a place called Ama Jay Kay. He saw a number of students gathered and was moved to preach. While he was preaching under very high anointing, the students were paying attention. At a stage, they started acting funny. They started surging forward towards Him intending to push Him into a deep gutter that was behind Him. As they kept coming towards Him, He was dressing back until some of them screamed and asked Him whether He was a human being or not. He demanded to know why they asked Him that and they said that He went across a big gutter and they thought He would fall into it. He told them He walked on a slab across the gutter! He had prayers for the blind and many of them were healed and received their sight. They attributed all to Pastor W.F. Kumuyi , the General Superintendent of Deeper Life Church.
In 1985, the Son of Man had a vision and a voice.
HEAR HIM: “I saw in a night vision, on the 27th of December, 1985, while we were preparing for our usual camp retreat in the Deeper Christian Life Ministry at Onitsha, a dry Tap producing no water and great multitude queued up waiting to collect water. I saw another Tap located in a small farmland but the track leading to it was very rough 1 and narrow. Only very few people were there and the tap was rushing out fresh water. Nobody was scrambling to get the water”. I heard a voice that spoke to me saying “The hour has come for me to use you as I purposed from the beginning for the Ministry of the old generation is over. I will not put a new wine into an old bottle. Arise and do the work as I will reveal to you from time to time but only be faithful and courageous. I the Lord God Almighty, I am with you wherever you will go”. (Audible Voice to the Son of Man on 27th December 1985). This voice came to the Son of Man when He was exactly thirty years of age. His coming into the church at Nkpor in 1990 was by audible voice He heard while at Madonna Hospital, Iboku Street, Onitsha. He was told to go to Nkpor church when there was no church bearing that name. What was there was the Bible Believers Assembly. He kept the voice He heard secret and started looking for the church at Nkpor. One day, as we were in the fellowship, there arose the question of what name the church should bear, that it would not be called Bible Believers Assembly again. I remember I was the person that read from the Scriptures showing that what we have in the Scriptures is: Church at Ephesus; Church at Philadelphia; Church at Antioch etc, and that we should answer the Church at Nkpor since the location is Nkpor, unknown to me that the Son of Man heard the same name before then. This suggestion was not taken immediately, yet the Son of Man kept quiet over the matter, hid the name He heard. One day, the Pastor of the Church then, Pastor Okechukwu Nwankpa, changed the name to “The Church at Nkpor” when he came back from a missionary trip from Aba. He said he preached in a bus and sat down and heard a voice.
Hear the Son of Man Himself in this narrative
“At the Deeper Life Bible Church, I was the youngest Minister in their midst, not married. They were calling me “knocking by Faith”. When the revelation came to me, I came to the General Superintendent, Pastor William Kumuyi, with it. He thought I was trying to establish a church. I said, “No, I came to you with this. This is what happened”. I showed them scripture, condemning many many things they were (and are) doing in Deeper Life Bible Church. I condemned women preaching. I condemned baptism in Trinity and established the Deity. I showed them scriptures. The thing became too much that when they could not bear it, I left them. The thing 1 carried me to Dr. Chinwoke Mbadinuju, a legal practitioner. I went to the Christian Centre at 4 Oguta Road, Onitsha, Anambra State, Nigeria, a non – denominational movement. I revealed the thing. Dr. Mbadinuju accepted it and then invited all the General Overseers of different churches in Onitsha and said I should come and defend it. I defended it (revelation, vision, teaching). The meeting lasted from 4.00pm to 11.30pm in the night. He took us – Bro. Mike and Myself - to my residence at Inland Town here in Onitsha, in his own car. That night, about seven (7) Pastors from different denominations in Onitsha went to the River Niger and baptised in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. So we continued. A little while, they brought, Amechi, brought Alpho, Akama. They started talking this and that. The thing became a very worrisome something in that the man, being a politician now turned to be a Christian, had money but I had nothing. He incorporated those revelations that came to me in book form and titled it “Restoration of Apostolic Faith” and “Beyond Pentecostal Realm”. Instead of telling the whole world the source of the revelation, he said, “a brother, one brother” had a vision. At the end of the day, he would place his name on those books though he was giving out the books free of charge. That led to his excommunication from the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship. They now denominated the thing and labelled it “Joshua Ministry”. I left them for I am not called to run a Church. No! I can never be a part of any denomination. I went back to my former church. Remember, I took off with Baptist Church, First Baptist Church Iboku, Onitsha. That was where I took off. I went back there; revealed this thing to my pastor and he said I should be patient with my vision. I said, No, I want you to see what I heard. It is contrary to what we are practising in this Baptist Church. So the man called meetings upon meetings. Meanwhile, I have held series of meetings with Expatriates from Southern Baptist Mission America on the matter. They now pushed me to the Nigerian Baptist Convention who nominated me to travel to America for a Bible Course. That Bible course will be paid for by the Church under the Southern Baptist Mission Arrangement in America. I processed my passport and everything. On that same day the passport got to me, I was coming back from the Church, the voice of the Lord halted me. He said, “DO NOT UNDERTAKE THIS TRIP. MY HAND IS NOT IN THIS TRIP. I HAVE ALREADY PREPARED A PLACE. IT MUST BE
THE CHURCH AT NKPOR. LOOK FOR IT. THAT IS WHERE I WILL TAKE OFF.
THE CHURCH AT NKPOR”.
And I did not know where the Church at Nkpor was located. I remained praying and praying and praying until one day I had another vision where two young men met me and started talking about the “faith”. While they were talking, what they were saying agreed with what I was holding but I pretended I was not believing them. At the end of the day, I followed them. I saw a little group. I narrated the thing to many people. I told my wife. One day the vision fulfilled. At about 6.00pm in the evening, while we were there with some Christian women who said they were preaching and I was telling them to get away from me, these two men came. My neighbor who was a deacon in the Grace of God Church challenged them, even used whip on them. I took them inside my house and said “who knows?, these could be the angels I saw. I shared my views with them. I gave them appointment to come the following day. The entire neighbourhood ran mad with me and my wife. I told them to get away from me because these people are holding something which is sinking well with me and that I would tell them after. They said I was deceived. I said, “yes”. I will like to be deceived. The funniest thing in them was that they were holding pamphlets and not the Word. So I used the Bible to bring them to my side. So they were astonished. They started sharing my testimonies and that of my family before I ever appeared in their midst. For almost one year, they share my testimony. So I over- delayed for I was trying to prove many many things and confirm my experience. So I examined the thing before I took a step. That was in the month of November, 1990. The last Sunday of the month of November 1990. When they were having their meetings in December that year, I came with my wife. I featured two times before I came with my wife. I just thank God for everything. In the Baptist Church, because of the way they were seeing the whole thing, I left them. The Lord then sent men to me. That was how I took a leap. The Lord equally gave me people who gave me their contact address as Bible Believers Assembly which helped me to be there. I got there the first time, then the second. I was in agreement with what they were doing but the name was not the Church at Nkpor. The third time I got there, there was an argument among them over the name of the Church. Bro. Ojiakor was equally at the heat of the argument. He read from his Bible, Thomson's Chain Reference Bible, advising them on what the name of the Church should be. They were having their different opinions. At the end of the day, the Pastor asked everybody to go. Few weeks later, the Pastor travelled to Aba on missionary outing and came and then told us he had an experience but he would tell us later but meanwhile everybody should go and look for the meaning of Nkpor. He gave us two weeks. Whatever that happened to him, he kept it secret. At the end of the two weeks, we were not able to find the meaning of Nkpor. He then mounted the pulpit and narrated his experience. He told us how he preached in a bus, a luxurious bus. At the end of the preaching, he sat down and the voice told him, “MY SERVANT WHEN YOU GET BACK TO YOUR LOCALASSEMBLY, WRITE “THE CHURCH AT NKPOR” ON THE SIGNBOARD FOR THIS IS THE NAME OF MY CONGREGATION”. So when he came back, he first of all wrote it on the board before ever uttering the thing. Nobody knew what was happening in Me and my wife. I pulled my wife's leg because we were basically new. You cannot even believe what happened there .... because they had never heard, “thus saith the Lord,” except that of William Marion Braham. One night, they had their night meeting, I featured there with my wife and children. During prayer line, the Spirit lifted me high. I spoke at length and ended it with “THUS SAITH THE LORD”, condemning what they were doing. Because I condemned what they were doing, it took me time to recover from this thing. Instead of balancing it with the scripture, Okey Nwankpa and Malachi Osuagwu (late), called me to the altar to pray for me. They said they would cast out the demon. They poured olive oil on me and said I was disturbing the fellowship, that it could not be God for God cannot be on the pulpit and on the floor at the same time. I accepted it. As we journeyed along, he became the prophet that was disorganising the fellowship, during prayer line and sometimes during preaching – a sure sign that it is not man made. 30 DECEMBER 1992 PUBLIC COMMISSIONING OF APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA The Church at Nkpor scheduled a five day camp meeting (28 st December, 1992 to 1 January, 1993). The Apostle Peter Odoemena, the Son of Man, by then had not been revealed to the Church for who He is. He was not regarded as a member of the ministerial team. He was asked by the Pastor to encourage the brethren the afternoon of that 30 December, 1992. He mounted the pulpit and handled a message: “Holy Ghost and Necessity for Holy Ghost Baptism”. This was very inspiring and threw the entire congregation into an unprecedented revival. We came to know and understand that Holy Ghost is a “man”; has mouth; can speak; has ears and can hear, Holy Ghost has eyes and can see. Many prophecies went forth; visions seen, hearts were discerned and secrets were revealed. Avery remarkable thing that happened was the public commissioning of the Son of Man as Apostle. This happened when the Pastor then, Pastor Okechukwu Nwamkpa was asked to pray and as he stood up with his bible in his hand, the bible flew up in the air and started turning around his raised hand and the prophecy went forth in these words: “I have anointed You with My Spirit, I have anointed You with My power, speak My Word. Fear them not, for I will be with You. I have anointed You with My unction. Yes the Lord of Hosts has promised. It is My Word among My people, it is My Word among My people, for it is My power, yes, thus shall you come into My sanctuary and they shall see My power among My people. It is My unfailing power. I have sworn that My Word shall not depart from your midst forever, for it is My presence among you. I have lifted up My Word above every person, for it is My power among My people". This was how Jesus Christ was anointed. “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” Acts 10:38 (KJV). The same day, the vision of the Sword was seen with the inscription “TRUTH” on it with the scripture, 1 Thess. 2:4-5KJV. 4 “ But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our 5 hearts. For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:” 1 Thess. 2:4-5 (KJV). The fear of God came into the camp. The Son of Man, Apostle Peter, took His position as Apostle and started reeling out doctrines. Doctrine on Separation; Holiness; Christian Living; Vocation; Christian Environmental Sanitation; God's Righteousness; Building plan: God's plan to Establish His Church, Doctrine on tithe where He cancelled paying of tithe as revealed from scriptures that tithe is of the old order. He gave us three foundational Messages upon which everything in this Pilgrim Journey would be hinged on. These messages are: 1) Mixed Multitude Parts I, II, & III. 2) From Jerusalem to Jericho 3) Faith In fact, we saw the Acts of the Apostles real in our lives. nd Aremarkable thing took place in the church on 2 March 1993. That day, the Apostle, the Son of Man, handled the message “GOD REBUILDS NKPOR CHURCH.” It was that day that the TAPE MINISTRY was instituted and ever since then, the warning has been going to the brethren handling it: “Be careful you do not distort this message because this is the everlasting gospel that is preached to the whole world.” The rebuilding of Nkpor Church is scriptural as in 1Kings 18:30-40 KJV. 30 “ And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the 31 LORD that was broken down. And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name: 32 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two 33 measures of seed. And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with 34 water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood. And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he 35 said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time. And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with 36 water. And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all 37 these things at thy word. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast 38 turned their heart back again. Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the 39 dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, 40 he is the God; the LORD, he is the God. And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.” 1Kings 18:30-40 (KJV). As Elijah rebuilt the broken altar, arranged it well and the fire of God came down, so the Son of Man rebuilt Nkpor Church and the Cloud, the Shekinah Cloud, the glory of God is always with us.
From that day, the Apostle, Son of Man was commissioned by audible voice, we saw Him embarking on missionary trips to places where nothing was known about the true Apostolic Ministry, establishing and conrming local assemblies. This took Him to remote areas in Nigeria: Eha-Amufu in Enugu State, Isiala-Ngwa in Abia State, Ohuba/Obosima in Imo State, Jos and Dadinkowa in Plateau State, Zonkwua and Godogodo in Kaduna State; Enugu Ezike, Opi, Nsukka and Enugu, all in Enugu State; Owerri, Umuokanne, and UmuorjiEgbema, all in Imo State, Lagos, Abuja, Port-Harcourt etc. All these places were virgin lands. Hear His words: “I do notwant to build upon another man'sfoundation”. This is scriptural as recorded in Romans 15:19-20 “Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man's foundation:” Romans 15:19-20, (KJV). While the Apostle was busy spreading the everlasting gospel, many disgruntled elements in the “End Time” message furiously came up against the Apostle. Their wrath was because the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, was very much unknown in the “End Time”. They were asking who that person could be, who God was now using so much that the fame of the Church at Nkpor has spread like wild re. Who could that be? Who could be the person that was preaching against tithe which was their main source of income? Who could be that man that was placing curses on people because they are stopping the move of God, dis-fellowshipping people; who is that person that was preaching Holiness unto the Lord; truth and transparency; not accepting bribe in any form or shape? Who could be that? Many came from Aba, Portharcourt, - Paul Oguibe; Cornelius; Christian Onwuegbu; David Inyama, from Lagos – Elija Didigbo, and from all parts of Nigeria. However, when they came, they could not withstand the power of the word of God in the Son of Man. Some resorted to false prophecy saying that; “thus says the Lord, I have not found your work right. Therefore, you will be hewn down like an Iroko tree this year”; “thus says the Lord, this move will not cross Upper Iweka.” (Upper Iweka is on the outskirts of Onitsha); “thus says the Lord, this move will quench this year.” In all, the Son of Man would just echo, “Amen” and still instruct His wife to serve them food while He Himself would give them money to transport themselves back home. Shamelessly, they would eat and collect His money and go. It is therefore clear that nobody can kick against the pricks. Gamaliel warned the Jews in a similar situation. 29 “ But Peter and the apostles replied, “We must obey God rather than 30 men. The God of our ancestors brought Jesus back to life again 31 after you had killed him by hanging him on a cross. Then, with mighty power, God exalted him to be a Prince and Savior, so that the people of Israel would have an opportunity for repentance, and for 32 their sins to be forgiven. And we are witnesses of these things and so 33 is the Holy Spirit, who is given by God to all who obey him.” At this, 34 the Council was furious and decided to kill them. But one of their members, a Pharisee named Gamaliel (an expert on religious law and very popular with the people), stood up and requested that the 35 apostles be sent outside the Council chamber while he talked. Then he addressed his colleagues as follows: “Men of Israel, take care 36 what you are planning to do to these men! Some time ago there was that fellow, Theudas, who pretended to be someone great. About four hundred others joined him, but he was killed, and his followers were 37 harmlessly dispersed. “After him, at the time of the taxation, there was Judas of Galilee. He drew away some people as disciples, but he 38 also died, and his followers scattered. “And so my advice is, leave these men alone. If what they teach and do is merely on their own, it 39 will soon be overthrown. But if it is of God, you will not be able to stop them, lest you find yourselves fighting even against God.” Acts 5:29-39 (LB). They never knew this scripture and went on planning on how to assassinate the Son of Man. God has prevailed! We give God the glory.
THE SON OFMAN, APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA
Whenever God reveals Himself in any age, He must revel Himself either as a Prophet or an Apostle. Whether in the Old Testament or New Testament, God must reveal Himself in the form of a human being bearing the title, “Prophet” or “Apostle” or “Teacher” or “Rabbi”. “Age” means dispensation. In every dispensation, God must appear to deal with human beings and He comes as a human being either as a “Prophet” or “Apostle” or “Teacher” or “Rabbi”. During the time Israel was in Egypt, it took God to come to them as a human being called Moses. Moses was the Prophet representing God. In fact, Prophet Moses became the visible God to the people of Israel. God gave Moses all that He (God) wanted Israel to know and Moses became the mouth piece of God. Anybody in Israel that disobeyed Moses was guilty of disobeying God and such was destroyed. Disobeying Moses was disobeying God. And Moses said unto the LORD, O my LORD, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD? Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say. And he said, O my LORD, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart. And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do. And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God. Exodus 4:10-16 (KJV). Moses had no word of his but God put God's word in Moses. So whatever Moses said, it was what God said in Moses. And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet. Exodus 7:1 (KJV) Moses was made God to Pharaoh and Aaron was to be his Prophet. God even spoke to Moses and promised him that He, God, would raise a Prophet to his people, like He (God) raised Moses, from among his kinsmen and He God would put His word into that Prophet and everybody must obey the words of that Prophet because they are the words of God and if anybody would refuse to obey that Prophet, that person would be cut off (killed) from among his people. The LORD [ ] your God will raise up for you a a prophet like me [Moses] from among you, from your countrymen (brothers, brethren). You shall listen to him. I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen like you, and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. It shall come about that whoever will not listen to My words which he shall speak in My name, I Myself will require it of him [and there will be consequences]. Deut. 18:15, 18- 19 (AMP) “Son of Man” means a man born of a woman; A man conceived and given birth to by a woman like other human beings. A man that is subject to death. “Son of Man” also means a “Prophet”, “a Servant of God”, “God's Tabernacle”, “the Dwelling Place of God”; It means God's mouth piece. It means the eyes of God. Jesus Christ was conceived and given birth to by a woman. He was Son of Man. The Prophets, Ezekiel, Daniel, etc., each was called Son of Man. They were Prophets, received the Word of God and gave it to the people, Jesus Christ, the same. In all, none of them called himself “Son of Man'. They were called Son of Man by God who tabernacled in them. And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will 2 speak unto thee. And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto 3 me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me. And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their 4 fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day. For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto 5 them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD. And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet 6 among them. And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be 7 dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether 8 they will forbear: for they are most rebellious. But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee.” Ezekiel 2:1-8 (KJV) Note it that immediately God called Ezekiel and Ezekiel answered, the Spirit of God entered him. God called him “Son of Man”. In the case of Jesus Christ, John the Baptist said he saw the Spirit descending on Him and remaining. 29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold 30 the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: 31 for he was before me. And I knew him not: but that he should be 32 made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from 33 heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, 34 the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.” John 1:29-34 (KJV) He did not receive the Spirit with measure. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. John 3:34 (KJV) The Almighty God was well pleased to dwell in Him. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. Matthew 17:5 (KJV) The Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, was anointed with the Spirit of God without measure thus: th On 30 December, 1992 when the Son of Man, Apostle Odoemena was publicly commissioned, the voice of prophecy went thus: "I have anointed You with My Spirit, I have anointed You with My power, speak My Word. Fear them not, for I will be with You. I have anointed You with My unction. Yes the Lord of Hosts has promised. It is My Word among My people, it is My Word among My people, for it is My power, yes, thus shall you come into My sanctuary and they shall see My power among My people. It is My unfailing power. I have sworn that My Word shall not depart from your midst forever, for it is My presence among you. I have lifted up My Word above every person, for it is My power among My people". In 1985, the Son of Man had a vision and a voice.
“I saw in a night vision, on the 27th of December, 1985, while we were preparing for our usual camp retreat in the Deeper Christian Life Ministry at Onitsha, a dry Tap producing no water and great multitude queued up waiting to collect water. I saw another Tap located in a small farmland but the track leading to it was very rough and narrow. Only very few people were there and the tap was rushing out fresh water. Nobody was scrambling to get the water”. I heard a voice that spoke to me saying “The hour has come for me to use you as I purposed from the beginning for the Ministry of the old generation is over. I will not put a new wine into an old bottle. Arise and do the work as I will reveal to you from time to time but only be faithful and courageous. I the Lord God Almighty, I am with you wherever you will go”.
(Audible Voice to the Son of Man on 27th December 1985). This voice came to the Son of Man when He was exactly thirty years of age. During the camp meeting in December 1994, after our holy st st communion that ended at 12.00 midnight of 31 December 1994 into 1 January 1995, as Apostle Peter Odoemena raised His hand in prayers, there was that bright shining light that came into the congregation, quenched the electronic gadget we were using that night and the voice thundered: “Thus, it behoveth the Son of Man to fulfill all righteousness”. That was the first time we heard the name “Son of Man”. It became clear to us that Apostle Peter Odoemena has now moved into the office of the Son of Man, lo, it is the Lord God Almighty that is dwelling among us (men) as a man, the prophet. He is God's Tabernacle, God's dwelling place. Hear The Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, in this narrative of a vision He had: I saw a man in ash coloured suit sitting on the Throne with a small book in His hand, relaxing in the air, and people turned on the road, watching. As we journeyed, we got to some places where they never noticed there was something going on. We continued to another place, we saw too many people, some standing, all gazing at Him. So, we continued. We travelled a long distance. The whole of that place, not even one person noticed there was somebody sitting there. And we were seeing Him as we drove along. Fear gripped us. So, we continued driving until we got to Okpala. When we got to Okpala, we noticed there was not even a soul that noticed there was something there. We parked in fear. I and Apostle Kelechi. I said to Apostle Kelechi, “This is horrible. Can you see that not many people noticed this thing? And the man is still there relaxing, holding the book, wearing His suit.” This was the suit Sebastian Nneji lost. While we were discussing, we came out from the vehicle. Before two of us there, that which we were looking at in the sky descended furiously. It was the worst day in My life. When the thing descended, the whole personality emptied into Me. I became very heavy and very weak, even to the point that I could not even raise My hand. I said to Apostle Kelechi, “You see why I said all of you should learn how to drive. Now, I do not have the strength to move this vehicle. What do we do now? Apostle Kelechi, please I am terribly weak.” So, in that weak condition, he was moping at Me, the thing vanished. He that sent Him called Him “The Son of Man” which is the office of the Creator of heaven and earth. The identity of the Son of Man is the Clouds of Heaven. His interaction between Him and He that sent Him. I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. Daniel 7:13 (KJV) And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. Rev. 14:14 (KJV) And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Luke 21:27 (KJV) And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. Acts 1:10-11 (KJV). On 7 April, 1996, we were asked to come to fellowship with our cameras and photographers so we might see He that has been dealing with us all these years, to banish unbelief. That was the first time we were allowed to bring in photographers into the Camp. That day, 7 April, 1996, the Son of Man Apostle Peter Odoemena, preached the message, “The Resurrected Body” and told us that He was (and still is) the Resurrected Body. He sang this song: “I am He that liveth and was dead and behold I am alive forever more; come unto Me all ye nations and be saved, for I am He that liveth and was dead”. The hired photographer and some of our brethren were busy taking photograph of the Son of Man. At a stage, He called out: “All this while, you have wasted your films. If you still have any films remaining, from now, finish all!” When the films were developed, we saw the Son of Man enveloped in the Cloud in thirteen (13) different positions with the Ball of re in the congregation. Some of the pictures are displayed here. The Godhead (Headstone) revealed in the Son of Man Apostle Peter Odoemena when a bishop took a photograph of the Son of th Man using his android phone, on 8 April 2012 during worship at Onitsha, Anambra State, Nigeria. This fullls Daniel 7:9; I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. Dan. 7:9 (KJV) And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; Rev. 1:13-14 (KJV) The Cloud is the Supernatural Presence of God that cannot be impersonated. God's presence among the Israelites was revealed by the Cloud, the Rainbow, the Smoke, the thick darkness and ball of fire. And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that th Equally, on 8 April 2012, one of our bishops took the photograph of the Son of Man when the fellowship was singing praises unto God and behold, The Headstone (Godhead) was captured. 1 all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle. And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses. Exodus 33:8-9 (KJV) Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne. Psalm 97:2 (KJV) The Archeological and the Historical writings of the Sanhendrin and Talmuds of the Jews says of Jesus Christ thus: “Another plan he has of setting men right with laws of nature: he turns nature into a great law book of illustrations, showing that every bush was a flame, every rock a fountain of water, every star a pillar of fire, and every cloud the one that leads to God”. (Pages 55 - 56). The Cloud has therefore revealed the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena as the very God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, the Almighty God veiled (masked) in a Human Being as He was veiled in the Human Being, man, called Jesus of Nazareth. When He, God, was in the man Jesus as the very Christ, He said that the world would be in Sodomite condition when the Son of Man shall be revealed, thus giving us the time the Son of man would be made known to the world. 26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the 27 Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and 28 the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they 29 planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom 30 it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. Luke 17:26-30 (KJV). There was so much evil in the time of Noah that God regretted creating man on earth and decided to wipe off the entire human race from the surface of the earth with water. 5 The LORD saw that the wickedness (depravity) of man was great on the earth, and that every imagination or intent of the thoughts of his 6 [ ] heart were only evil continually. The LORD a regretted that He had made mankind on the earth, and He was [deeply] grieved in His 1 7 heart. So the LORD said, “I will destroy (annihilate) mankind whom I have created from the surface of the earth—not only man, but the animals and the crawling things and the birds of the air—because it [deeply] grieves Me [to see mankind's sin] and I regret that I have 8 made them.” But Noah found favor and grace in the eyes of the LORD. Genesis 6:5-8 Amplified Bible (AMP) The evil in Sodom and Gomorrha was so much that God decided to totally annihilate those cities with fire. 20 So the Lord told Abraham, “I have heard that the people of Sodom and Gomorrah are utterly evil, and that everything they do is wicked. 21 I am going down to see whether these reports are true or not. Then I will know.” Genesis 18:20-21 (LB). 12 “What relatives do you have here in the city?” the men asked. “Get them out of this place—sons-in-law, sons, daughters, or anyone else. 13 For we will destroy the city completely. The stench of the place has reached to heaven and God has sent us to destroy it.” Genesis 19:12- 13 (LB). Jesus Christ prophesied that whenever the world would be in that same condition it was during the time of Noah as well as it was in Sodom and Gomorrah, the Son of Man would be revealed. These days, the evil in the world has combined all the evils of those ages – the evil of the age of Noah, the evil of Sodom and Gomorrah – all are combined. There was no age gone by that was as bad as this age, this generation! The indices are there. This is the age blood letting is the order of the day, sedition, wars, intolerance, criminality; religious bigotry; sodomy, lesbianism, avarice, hating God, wickedness, human sacrifice, kidnapping, abduction, all kinds of vices. etc This age is the worst age and Jesus the Christ prophesied that the Son of Man would be revealed at this age. This prophecy by Jesus Christ is fulfilled. It is therefore very clear that the Son of Man Apostle Peter odoemena has been revealed according to the Scriptures, according to the prophecy and according to time. He is the only Being that has challenged all religious groups, denominations, associations and defeated all. He is the only man that has exposed the rottenness, the evils in the organized religions in the world including the Roman Catholic Organization, in our publication, “Cry Out Against the System” and remains unhurt. Of course, only Elijah was able to cry out against the idolatrous worship in the land of Israel during the time of Ahab, King of Israel. The Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena is the only Man of God on earth that has lumped all the religious groups together as business centers, making merchandise of their members who they have as their articles of trade – payment of tithes; offerings; sowing seed of faith; paying for breaking of curses, etc. Their sole target is extorting money from whosoever comes their way. The bible says that their belly is their god and they mind earthly things. 17 “ Dear brothers, pattern your lives after mine, and notice who else 18 lives up to my example. For I have told you often before, and I say it again now with tears in my eyes, there are many who walk along the 19 Christian road who are really enemies of the cross of Christ. Their future is eternal loss, for their god is their appetite: they are proud of what they should be ashamed of; and all they think about is this life here on earth.”Phil. 3:17-19 (LB). 17 “ Only those who, like ourselves, are men of integrity, sent by God, speaking with Christ's power, with God's eye upon us. We are not like those hucksters—and there are many of them—whose idea in getting out the Gospel is to make a good living out of it.”2 Cor. 2:17 (LB). “It is God himself, in his mercy, who has given us this wonderful [ ] 2 work of telling his Good News to others, a and so we never give up. We do not try to trick people into believing—we are not interested in fooling anyone. We never try to get anyone to believe that the Bible teaches what it doesn't. All such shameful methods we forego. We stand in the presence of God as we speak and so we tell the truth, as all who know us will agree.” 2 Cor. 4:1-2 LB. He has a mission. His mission is to bring God's Elects Home to Him. He is the Almighty God in Human Skin. He is not a business man that is making money with the name “Jesus” like all the rest of the so-called men of God. He is that same Christ that was promised to come back the second time, not to deal with sin but to bring full and complete salvation to all that are eagerly and patiently waiting for Him. So also Christ died only once as an offering for the sins of many people; and he will come again, but not to deal again with our sins. This time he will come 1 bringing salvation to all those who are eagerly and patiently waiting for him. Hebrew 9:28 (LB) He is equally the One vested with authority to judge the entire world because He is the Son of Man. For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. John 5:21-22, 26-27 (KJV). He is the Mighty Angel ying in the midst of heaven having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth. And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. Rev. 14:6-7 (KJV) He is not even a church Age messenger. He is the One in the midst of the seven candle sticks of Revelation chapter 1:12-19 (KJV). 12 “ And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, 13 I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment 14 down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his 15 eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth 17 in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first 18 and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am 19 alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;” Rev. 1:12-19 (KJV). Once you are covenanted with the Elohim through the Son of Man,
WISDOM OF GOD IS ABOVE EVERY MAN'S WISDOM, ACADEMIC ATTAINMENTNOTWITHSTANDING
This is the man that never went to any formal university or polytechnic or college of education. Yet, when He speaks, doctorate degree holders are stunned, university professors are amazed. He is One that speaks on every aspect of life; any matter at all and you begin to wonder the type of wisdom, knowledge, understanding and precision with which He presents the facts about that matter. Simply raise any matter at all! It is not surprising if one can truly understand that it is the same God working. What He did when He was in Jesus Christ is what He is doing now and more. Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. And the Jews marveled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. John 7:14-18 (KJV) The above scripture sums the whole thing. People wonder how the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena speaks with such unfathomable wisdom, boldness, clarity, precision and has answers to everything there is in this world – simply name that thing. This is because God is wisest the Being on earth! This is God hidden in human esh. On the outside, He appears as a human being but in the inside, He is the Almighty veiled in a badger skin. He is a Paradox. The more you look, the less you see. You will only recognize Him as God if He reveals Himself to you, for God is always revealed. Many professors and doctors, many lawyers, magistrates, judges even Judges of the Nigerian Supreme Court like Nikky Tobi, have had encounter with the Son of Man at Enugu, Nigeria and have confessed openly that He made them look like infants and ignorant people, with His wisdom and one concluded that He was the author of the Bible while another said He was Bible Encyclopaedia. Professor Nwajagu said the Son of Man made him look like a novice in the knowledge of the scriptures. The grand masters of Ekankar, Grail Message, Amok, confessed that in their projection, they could not get to the height or frequency where the Son of Man is operating. They came, bowed before Him and confessed. A man that came from America heard the Son of Man speak and confessed that in their own gathering in America, they were told that God had come back to Nigeria. That was in 1978.
THE SON OF MAN, APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA IS A PROPHET The Son of Man, as a Prophet, we must pay heed to His prophecies and His prophecies are His words. The need for a Prophet cannot be over emphasized. This is because He is the mouth piece of God. God here enjoins us to believe God for us to be established and to believe His prophets for us to prosper. And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. 2 Chron. 20:20 (KJV) There is no way God can speak to you without using a man as His mouthpiece. The scripture says the Lord our God will do nothing without revealing it to His servants the Prophets who in turn will speak to the people they are sent to. Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. Amos 3:7 (KJV) Hear the Son of Man: “Jesus was sent to Israel. Apostle Peter Odoemena is sent to Nigeria and to the entire world. I am to unite, reconcile, restore, rebuild, the Jews and the Gentiles. The totality of the Elohim dwelleth in Me. I am the Tabernacle tabernacling the Original Body. In short, I am the Original Body. I can travel anywhere I want in any form I want. Your prayers do not go beyond this flesh. If anybody is telling you that your prayer is going somewhere, this is the final point. Everything jams here, scrutinized here, attended to here. I am the receptionist. If I do not receive it, it will not go anywhere. I am given the authority to open any parcel designated to Almighty God. Yet it is not all that God has veiled Himself in a vessel called Apostle Peter Odoemena, not counting it robbery; conferred Him with absolute authority over his creatures” (Who is this man. The Son of Man? Part 1 Vol. 2. Page 104:13-17) It is very necessary to introduce who the Son of Man is, to you so that you can take your stand as you go through these quotes. Understand that you are reading the words of one that is the mouth piece of God. He is giving you the mind of God. He is God in Human form. So you are reading the mind of God!
WHO OPERATED IN THE PROPHETS OF OLD?
Regarding this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace [of God] that was intended for you, searched carefully and inquired [about this future way of salvation], seeking to find out what person or what time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He foretold the sufferings of Christ and the glories [destined] to follow. 1 Peter 1:10-11 (AMP)
For no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. 2 Peter 1:21 (AMP) The Spirit of Christ. So it has always been Christ! It was Christ that worked in all the prophets of old and Christ is the Spirit of God; Christ is God; Christ is the Word of God made esh. The Scripture says Christ in you, the hope of glory. Remember 1 John 1:1-2 LB, says Christ was alive when the world began. I myself have seen Him. Christ was alive when the world began. So it cannot be that Christ started with Jesus Christ. No, because Jesus that housed Christ had a beginning but Christ has no beginning. Jesus as a man, ended one day but Christ lives forever, having no beginning of days, nor ending of days. Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually. Heb. 7:3 (KJV) It was Christ that created everything there is. Christ is the exact likeness of the unseen God. He existed before God made anything at all, and, in fact, Christ himself is the Creator who made everything in heaven and earth, the things we can see and the things we can't; the spirit world with its kings and kingdoms, its rulers and authorities; all were made by Christ for his own use and glory. He was before all else began and it is his power that holds everything together. Col. 1:15-17 (LB) Christ is the exact likeness of the unseen God. He Himself is the Creator who made everything in heaven and earth. Note that it says “Christ” and not “Jesus”. So Christ is the Human Appearance of the Supreme Deity. Anytime God appears to man as man, He is automatically called Christ. Remember that “Jesus” was the earthly name of that human body delivered by Mary, the wife of Joseph, son of David. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Luke 1:30-33 (KJV) Then we see that that same Jesus was born and nobody knew Him and His mission until John the Baptist, a prophet who was sent to prepare the way before Him, came and revealed Him thus: The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God. John 1:29-34 (KJV) It took John the Baptist the Prophet to reveal Him because the Lord God will do nothing but revealeth His secrets to His Servants the Prophets. He was given a sign to watch out for. The sign was anybody he (John) would see the Holy Spirit descending and resting on him, that person was the very Christ. John, who was a cousin to Jesus, never knew Jesus was the promised Messiah, the Christ. So if God never revealed it to John, John would have missed Him. The same way, Apostle Peter Odoemena was revealed by the Prophet William Marion Branham who pointed everybody to where to meet Him. He said we know Him by the Word. He will come with the full Word and the Cloud would reveal Him. This has happened. There is no doubt again. Therefore, hear ye Him! He is over vindicated!! This Man was prophesied about by the Prophet to the Laodicean Church Age (Rev. 3:14-21), William Marion Branham. The Prophet William Marion Branham equally foreran His Ministry as John the Baptist foreran the Ministry of Jesus Christ. This Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, The Son of Man, equally has His Scriptural Commission as Jesus Christ, John the Baptist, etc. The Scriptural Commission of a Man of God tells us His mission and reveals who He is. When you know who He is, it will help you to pay heed to what He is saying.
SCRIPTURAL COMMISSION OF THE SON OF MAN, APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA.
The Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena was revealed with the following scriptural commission like William Branham, John the Baptist, Saint Paul and even the Lord Jesus Christ.
“Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. Abruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles.” Isaiah 42:1-6 (KJV). “And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth. Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee”. Isaiah 49:6-7 (KJV). For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.Acts 13:47 (KJV). “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters”. Rev. 14:6-7 (KJV). “Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed in a cloud, with a rainbow (halo) over his head; and his face 2 was like the sun, and his feet (legs) were like columns of fire; and he had a little book (scroll) open in his hand. He set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land;”Rev. 10:1-2 (AMP). “I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;” Rev. 1:10-14 (KJV). 9 “ I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as 14 burning fire. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed”. Dan. 7:9, 14 (KJV). The Scriptural commission reveals that this Being is the very Christ that should come again according to the scriptures. When He, God, Christ, was in Jesus, He promised He would come back to nish His work of Salvation. “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also”. John 14:1-3 (KJV). “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also”. John 14:16-19 (KJV). “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me”. John 15:26 (KJV). “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 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. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father”. John 16:12-16 (KJV). It was Christ in Jesus saying that He would come back as the Comforter, the Holy Ghost. He said He would not leave us comfortless but will come to us. While He was talking to the people, He was a man like them. In Matthew 28:20, He (Christ) said, “Lo, I am with you always even unto the end of the world. Amen”. “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen”. Matthew 28:20 (KJV). So, Christ has been here. It requires one thing: He must be revealed as He was revealed in the rst advent by John the Baptist. So today, Christ is here on earth in His second coming as He promised in the scriptures above and is revealed in Apostle Peter Odoemena, the Son of Man, revealed by the Prophet William Marion Branham who introduced Him to the entire world as we shall see in the prophecies of the Prophet. Prophet William Marion Branham, the Church Messenger to the Laodiean Church Age was the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6. “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse”. Malachi 4:5-6 (KJV). He came to forerun the second coming of Christ just as John the Baptist foreran the rst coming of Christ. “The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain”. Isaiah 40:3-4 (KJV). “Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts”. Malachi 3:1 (KJV). It is clear John the Baptist that foreran the rst coming of Christ was foretold in these scriptures. See the fullment in: Luke 1:17. “And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord”. Luke 1:17 (KJV). “And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? Areed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses. But what went ye out for to see? Aprophet? Yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Verily I say unto you, among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come”. Matt 11:7-14 (KJV). “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse” Malachi 4:5-6 (KJV). - shows what he would do when he comes. There are two fold functions this Elijah would do: (1) To turn the hearts of the fathers to the children. (2) To turn the hearts of the children to their fathers. John the Baptist (Elijah of Malachi 4:5) fullled the rst part. “And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord”. Luke 1:17 (KJV). To turn the hearts of the fathers to the children. This is the hearts of the Jewish fathers who were before the rst coming of Christ, to the hearts of the children - the pentecostal children, the children of Grace, the Age of Christ in His rst advent. The part two, turning the hearts of the present day children to their pentecostal, Apostolic, Holy Ghost filled fathers: that is taking everybody in this age (children), back to the Word of God that was abandoned at Pentecost. It would take another Prophet with the Spirit of Elijah to do this. The Prophet William Marion Branham fullled this. He was the one that told the entire world to go back to the Word of God. He came with the message pointing everybody to the Word. He said the Word is in the Bride and would be a Man. He pointed everybody to where to nd the Word - that it is lying in one of the jungles in Africa; that He is the full Word and introduced Him, telling everybody that this Word, this Man will be identied by the Shekinah Glory in the form of a cloud that will encircle Him, the end of which will be innity. He said the 'halo' over his (Branham's) head was just a small thing and that when He (Christ, the Word, in the Person, the Man) should come, the 'halo' would encircle Him completely. Pillar of Cloud encompassing the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena The Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena Pillar of Cloud encompassing the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena Pillar of Cloud above Prophet William Marion Branham Pillar of Cloud encompassing the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena Pillar of Cloud above Prophet William Marion Branham COMMISSION OF PROPHET WILLIAM MARION BRANHAM TO FORERUN THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST, THE SON OFMAN APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA The Prophet William Branham received the commission to forerun the second coming of Christ. During a baptismal service in June 1963, on the Ohio River Jeffersonville, Indiana, as the Prophet William Marion Branham was baptizing the 17th person, the voice went forth thus: "As John the Baptist foreran the first coming of Christ, you will forerun His second coming (that is, Christ's second coming), (The Revelation of the Seven Seals - William Marion Branham). “So also Christ died only once as an offering for the sins of many people; and he will come again, but not to deal again with our sins. This time he will come bringing salvation to all those who are eagerly and patiently waiting for him”. Hebrews 9:28 (LB). Note the Word to the Prophet - “You will forerun the second coming of Christ”. Not second coming of “Jesus” but second coming of “CHRIST”. Note also what the Bible says in Hebrews 9:28. (LB). “So also Christ died only once as an offering for the sins of many people; and he will come again, but not to deal again with our sins. This time he will come bringing salvation to all those who are eagerly and patiently waiting for him”. Hebrews 9:28. (LB). “So also 'Christ'…” (and not Jesus) died only once as an offering for the sins of many people; and He (Christ) will come again (the second time), but not to deal with our sins. This time, He will come bringing full and complete salvation to all those who are eagerly and patiently waiting for Him. So, it cannot be Jesus this time but the same Christ that was in Jesus will now come again, putting on another esh and also in a new name as in Revelation 2:17. “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it”. Revelation 2:17 (KJV). “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name”. Revelation 3:12 (KJV). “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God”. Revelation 19:11- 13 (KJV). So this Christ whom Prophet William Marion Branham foreran will denitely not answer Jesus but the content MUST be the same Sovereign Spirit, Elohim on two Feet and He is the Messiah of the last Age. John the Baptist did not marry. He was a bachelor and foreran the rst coming of Christ as a bachelor also, Who came and paid the penalty for sin. William Marion Branham, who foreran the second coming of Christ, married and raised a family and so, of necessity, the Christ he foreran MUST as well marry and raise a family to show the entire world how families should be; the relationship between husband and wife; how Godly children should be raised and how to full the purpose of God establishing marriage according to Malachi 2:15. “You were united to your wife by the Lord. In God's wise plan, when you married, the two of you became one person in his sight. And what does he want? Godly children from your union. Therefore, guard your passions! Keep faith with the wife of your youth”. Malachi 2:15 (LB). Therefore let it not scandalize you when you hear that Christ has a family. After all, God is Ela Elohim which is, “One dwelling with His family”. Again, Christ is the Bridegroom and the believers are the Bride. “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready”. Revelation 19:7 (KJV). “He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled”. John 3:29 (KJV).
PROPHECIES OF WILLIAM MARION BRANHAM ABOUT THE SON OF MAN, APOSTLE PETER ODOEMENA, THE REVEALED CHRIST
Let us hear some of the prophecies of the prophet William Marion Branham concerning this Christ (this Man) whose coming he foreran:
My Mission On Earth Is To Forerun The On-Coming Word
My mission I believe to the earth is what? Is to forerun the coming Word (see?) the coming Word which is Christ. And Christ in Him has the millennium and has everything right there because He is the Word (see?).
(The Spoken Word Is The Original Seed, page 20, para. 1). It Is Africa First: There Lays God's Eternal Word My meetings haven't been what they should been for past two years. It's because I've failed the Lord. He told me to go to Africa and then to India. Here it is written right here in the back of this book right now. And the manager called me, said, “Let them Afrikaans go, India is ready!” The Holy Spirit met me, said, “You'll go to Africa like I told you to.” And another year passed. And the managers… I forgot about it, he said, we're going to India, tickets are already here. I started off, I forgot it till I got to Lisbon. One night that … I thought I was dying. The next morning I was started to go over to the bathroom to take a bath. Oh, I was so sick, I could hardly stand up. There that Light hanging there in the bathroom, said, “I thought I told you to go to Africa first.” My meetings has been slowly failing since that time. Though I went to India with nearly half a million stand up there, but that wasn't doing what God said do. And I feel that my meetings will never be a success until I go right straight back and make that thing right. NO MATTER WHAT I DO, IT IS AFRICAFIRST, 'CAUSE YOU'VE GOT TO DO IT. THERE LAYS GOD'S ETERNAL WORD LAYING THERE. I KNOW BETTER THAN THAT. But I've got to go back. And I feel that this coming year is the time that I'll crawl out of the shell by the help of the Lord. This glorious old gospel who's been growing easy, like an Oak tree, but I believe she's about ready to spread forth her branches again. I believe it, this great message and great thing. I believe that the Lord will let us shake the world again for the glory of God. (Hebrews Chapter 7, part 1, page 295-296). The Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena is indeed the Word. He is the Word made esh in this generation. He has the Word, the spoken Word for the hour. Whatever He says stands and He creates things with the Word of His mouth as the very Creator of all things according to Col. 1:15-17. 15 Christ is the exact likeness of the unseen God. He existed before God [ ] 16 made anything at all, a and, in fact, Christ himself is the Creator who made everything in heaven and earth, the things we can see and the things we can't; the spirit world with its kings and kingdoms, its rulers 17 and authorities; all were made by Christ for his own use and glory. He was before all else began and it is his power that holds everything together. Colossians 1:15-17 (LB). That was why in 1994, when He (The Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, The Christ of today, The Word made esh) touched on the mystery of the seven Thunders and the mystery of the seven seals, something happened in His ofce at the Federal Ministry of Employment, Labour and Productivity, Onitsha. While in the ofce, He was just speaking and explaining a little to His wife before the main exposition or teaching, the voice went forth from him, “See the dove!” Lo and behold a giant dove appeared into His ofce. The dove was held and even taken to His residence very close to His ofce. Many people saw the dove which felt very comfortable in the hands of the Son of Man and refused to go. When the Son of Man threw her up into the sky, she ew up and came back to His hand. She nally ew away late that evening only by the spoken word when the Son of Man ordered her thus, “My Friend, you can go”, she then ew away. It is worthy of note that before this incident, Bishop Obadiah of the Household of God at Aba in Abia State, had a dream where the Son of Man was explaining to us that the dove in His hand and the one in heaven were the same. That Last Little Sheep May Be A Black One There is one little sheep out here somewhere and he will not be satisfied until that one comes in the fold. By the help of God, and by a vision, and Thus Saith The Lord, I'm returning across the sea. THAT LAST LITTLE SHEEP MAY BE A BLACK ONE, down there, for all that I know… where they don't even think they have a soul, but God knows different. (The Easter Seal, page 40, 4/10/65. Phoenix Arizona). The Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, is from Uvuru Mbaise in South East Nigeria. Uvuru Mbaise was actually a very big jungle in 1955 when the Son of Man was born. The Prophet Branham indeed saw that nobody would think a soul was there. The Prophet saw God's Eternal Word lying there in that body.
The Angel That Visited Bro Branham
Then along in the night, at about the ELEVENTH HOUR, I had quit praying and was sitting up when I noticed a light flickering in the room. Thinking someone was coming with a flashlight, I looked out of the window, but there was no one, and when I looked back, the light was spreading out on the floor, becoming wider. Now I know this seems very strange to you, as it did to me also. As the light was spreading, of course I became excited and started from the chair, but as I looked up, there hung that great star. However, it did not have five points like a star, but looked more like a ball of fire or light shining down upon the floor. Just then I heard someone walking across the floor, which startled me again, as I knew of no one who would be coming there besides myself. Now, coming through the light, I saw the feet of a man coming toward me, as naturally as you would walk to me. HE APPEARED TO BE A MAN WHO, IN HUMAN WEIGHT, WOULD WEIGH ABOUT TWO HUNDRED POUNDS, CLOTHED IN A WHITE ROBE. HE HAD A SMOOTH FACE, “NO BEARD”, DARK HAIR HANGING DOWN TO HIS SHOULDERS, RATHER DARK – COMPLEXIONED, WITH A VERY PLEASANT COUNTENANCE, AND COMING CLOSER, HIS EYES CAUGHT WITH MINE. Seeing how fearful I was, he began to speak. “Fear not, I AM SENT FROM THE PRESENCE OF ALMIGHTY GOD TO TELL YOU THAT YOUR PECULIAR AND YOUR MISUNDERSTOOD WAYS HAVE BEEN TO INDICATE THAT GOD SENT YOU TO TAKE A GIFT OF DIVINE HEALING TO THE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD. If you will be sincere and GET THE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE YOU, nothing shall stand before your prayer, not even cancer.” Words cannot express how I felt. He told me many things which I do not have space to record here. He told me how I would be able to detect diseases by vibrations on my hand. He went away, but I HAVE SEEN HIM SEVERAL TIMES SINCE THEN. He has appeared to me perhaps once or twice within the space of six months and has spoken with me. A few times he has APPEARED VISIBLYIN THE PRESENCE OF OTHERS. I do not know who he is. I ONLYKNOWTHAT HE IS AMESSENGER OFGOD TO ME. (From the Book: William Branham, AMan Sent From God/pg. 77, 78). The Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena has proved beyond doubt that He is that Angel that visited the Prophet William Branham as a dark complexioned Being for He, The Son of Man, is the One in the midst of 13 the seven golden candlesticks of Rev 1:13; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. Revelation 1:13 16 (KJV), and who had the seven stars in His hand. (Rev. 1:16); And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. Revelation 1:16 (KJV). He is the One who gave the seven church messengers, and William th Branham was the last (7 ) one, the inspiration to do what they did. So, He actually came to the Prophet and inspired him. Anybody can compare the description of that Angel as given by the Prophet Branham with the th Theophany (Original) Body assumed by the Son of Man on 19 August, Photograph capturing the Original Body (Theophany Body) of the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, the Owner of the Church, on th 19 August 2012. The Prophet saw the Son of Man as the black skinned Being. The same Dark Skinned Being visited the Prophet. This is the Angel that came to Prophet William Marion Branham. This is the Great Jehovah, the Ancient of Days, the Great I Am, The Resurrected Christ that has come to earth again to take home those that are eagerly and patiently waiting for Him.
HEAR PROPHETBRANHAM AGAIN:
“It may be time. It may be the hour now, that this great person that we're expecting to rise on the scene may rise on the scene. Maybe this ministry that I have tried to take people back to the Word has laid a foundation; and if it has, I'll be leaving you for good. There won't be two of us here the same time. If it is, he will increase, I'll decrease. I don't know. But I have been privileged by God to look and see what it was – unfold to that much. Now, that is the truth”. (William Marion Branham. Revelation of the Seven Seals. Page 567.) Look at what John the Baptist said about Christ in His rst coming: “And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of 1 the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease”. John 3:26-30 (KJV). John the Baptist declared publicly that he was not the Christ. He said that He, Christ, would increase while he, John the Baptist, would decrease. The same Spirit spoke in William Branham and said that the great Person he (Branham) was expecting to rise on the scene may rise on the scene. He said he was laying a foundation for the great Person to step on and if He the Christ would come, he Branham, would leave us for good, that the two of them would not be on the scene at the same time but if at all they would be on the scene at the same time, he (Branham) would decrease while that great Person (Christ) would increase! Same voice! This is very clear. This Great Person is Apostle Peter Odoemena, the Son of Man, Christ, the Word made flesh!
PROPHET BRANHAM CONTINUES:
“So I've watched for something. Has it slipped by us in humility and we've missed it? Is it gone and the church is left in her sins? If that be so, then it's later than you think. If not, then there's coming one with a Message that's straight on the Bible, and quick work will circle the earth. The seeds will go in newspapers, reading material, until every predestinated seed of God has heard it. None of them will come unless the Father has drawed them, and everyone the Father has drawed will hear It and come. That'll be, the predestinated Seed will hear the Word”. (COD - Conduct Order Doctrine. Vol. II. Page 724. Para 179). The Prophet saw One coming with a message straight on the Bible and quick work that will encircle the earth, the seeds will go in newspapers, reading materials, till every predestinated seed of God has heard it. This is fully fullled by the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena. The messages of the Son of Man have gone round the whole earth through the help of the internet and can be accessed in the following websites: www.brideofchristministryworldwide.org www.previeworideofchristministry.org www.chroniclesoridalfaithworldwide.org E-mail Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Every country on this earth has access to these messages and every week, thousands of people, both Muslims, Hindus, Jews (Judaism), so called Atheists, Christians, the Vatican City etc. rush to these websites, reading these messages. Therefore, the prophecy of William Branham as quoted above is fullled! The same way, the prophecy of Jesus Christ in Mathew 24:14 is also fullled. “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come”. Matt 24:14 (KJV). It is said that a Prophet is honoured everywhere except in his own country and among his brethren. Yet, the Son of Man Apostle Peter Odoemena has so revealed the Personality in Him that His nuclear family members are fully convinced that this is the Almighty God in human form. Hear what His immediate family members said:
MEMBERS OFFAMILYACKNOWLEDGE HIM TO BE GOD. HEAR HIM:
Remember, I have touched on different categories of personalities since the beginning of this Message. If I were in your shoes, sitting down, hearing a man speaking like this and He has not made any reference from anything He picked from His pocket, He has not written anything. Let Me use the words my family used. They said, “Daddy, if not for one thing, we have been querying certain things. When do you have this time? We know how you stay from morning till night; we know how you stay even till we go to bed. We know you cannot come out. Sometimes, we wake you up thinking you are sleeping. But you will salute us. But let Me ask this. When do you sit down to think and meditate and this and that. When brethren are always around you, you keep on talking from morning till night. Even eating will become difficult. Yet, when we gather, the fountain will continue flowing. Now we believe with all our heart, this is not a man's doing but God”. Sometimes, the thing will rake up conversations you even held in your houses. Things we heard which we knew you never heard. To God be the glory. Amen. (SON OF MAN – IT SHALL BE WELL WITH THE RIGHTEOUS VOL. 1, PAGE 143: 77 – 79). All authorities acknowledge Him to be the Almighty God. APresbyterian Clergy man Laverna Patterson, has this to say about Apostle Peter Odoemena. This is in the Internet: “PETER ODOEMENA (Nigeria). He claims that Branham is the forerunner who came to introduce him and he is God. Name any title of God and he has claimed it. (www.teachinghearts.org). The entire world is now standing up for the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena. Hundreds of thousands from all the countries of the world are trooping to the websites. Many pastors of churches in Kenya, Sri Lanka, Entrea, South Africa, America, United Kingdom, etc etc are writing the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, asking for prayers, asking for spiritual materials; asking for permission to partner with Him; many people are asking for prayers, for solution to their marital problems; many are asking for healing; many are praying that He would visit their countries while many are asking for salvation of their souls and the souls of the members of their families. They have all believed this is the Great Jehova God Almighty, in human form who has solution to every problem of mankind! Listen to the voice of the Son of Man thus: Whether you like it or not, He that is in your midst, the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena is the promised spirit of truth that will lead you to the knowledge of all truths. He is that same spirit the world cannot receive because they cannot see Him but you see Him, you know Him for He is abiding with you. You have no excuse to give. “A little while, the world will not see me but you will see me for I am coming to dwell with you”. While they were confused about the way He will come. He said, “Pray not that I go not away”. Do not pray that I should not go away, for if I do not go away; He that will come will not come. Look at the way I will come: I am coming to you as the Comforter. I am coming again as a Spirit the world will not receive you will know me. SON OF MAN (THE COMFORTER PAGE 95:81-83). The man Jesus whom God anointed with the Spirit of Christ and He became God, I speak before heaven and Earth, if he never acknowledged my day, you would have seen him in hell. But because He Firs to fall acknowledged the Son of Man, pointed his disciples to the Son of Man before He gave way, that became His Justification. If he had spoken one word against the Son of Man, that could have been the end of His Journey. Remember he remained a man, a mere man until God anointed Him with the Spirit of Christ and He became God. That is why, all references to Him was, “The man;” “The man,” “The man”. However, before he gave way, he pointed his disciples to the days of the Son of Man and told them to wait for He, The Comforter, that will come and guide them into the knowledge of all truth. For he had already declared to them, “I have many things I would have told you, but you can never bear them now. Nevertheless, when he, the Spirit of Truth, the Comforter, shall come, He shall lead you to all truth”. (I AM THE WORD VOL.2 PAGE 101:10-14). In Christ dwelleth the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Therefore, it is clear that this Being is no other but the Almighty GOD; the Elohimon two feet; Christ hidden in human esh. This is Christ that has come the second time. This is Almighty God coming back to man in this generation for the last time before He would destroy everything as He said He would. You are therefore not reading quotes by a mere man but quotes by God Almighty, Christ Himself. Therefore, as you go through these quotes, do that prayerfully that the Spirit of He (the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, God EnMorphe), will reveal what is His mind so that you will be blessed richly by this Spoken Word which is the original seed. I pray that as you read and study, the Spirit in these words will quicken your mortal body and revive you. These quotes are arranged topically and in alphabetical order for ease of reference. May the Almighty God, the Son of Man, Apostle Peter Odoemena, give you insight into His Word, to desire this word more than your necessary food for man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. “And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God”. Mathew 4:3-4 (KJV).
God bless you.
