THE SON OF MAN
THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISHMAEL, ISAAC AND JACOB
THEN ABRAHAM FELL ON HIS FACE AND LAUGHED AND SAID IN HIS HEART, SHALL A CHILD BE BORN TO A MAN WHO IS A HUNDRED YEARS OLD? AND SHALL SARAH, WHO IS NINETY YEARS OLD, BEAR A SON? AND [HE] SAID TO GOD, OH, THAT ISHMAEL MIGHT LIVE BEFORE YOU!
BUT GOD SAID, SARAH YOUR WIFE SHALL BEAR YOU A SON INDEED, AND YOU SHALL CALL HIS NAME ISAAC [LAUGHTER]; AND I WILL ESTABLISH MY COVENANT SOLEMN PLEDGE WITH HIM FOR AN EVERLASTING COVENANT AND WITH HIS POSTERITY AFTER HIM”.
GENESIS 17:17-19. AMP
THE BIRTH OF ISAAC
I am still tracing something. You know I am a Rabbi. I leave no stone unturned. I go further a little. Genesis 17:1 – 6. When Abram was ninety-nine (99) years old, God appeared to him and told him,...Again ....“I am the Almighty; obey me and live as you should.
2-4 I will prepare a contract between us, guaranteeing to make you into a mighty nation. In fact you shall be the father of not only one nation, but a multitude of nations!”....
Put your hands together. Why should Israel lay claim to being the only one nation of God. Remember at this point in time Israel is not yet born. Israel has not come into existence and the contract had been entered into between God and Abraham to be father, not of one nation, but of multitude of nations. And one later appeared. The mother promoted him to assume superiority over all and you want the rest to keep quiet.
Well, you must know the truth and the truth will set you free. If you feel I am indoctrinating you, burn down the Bible, for this is the history we can lay hand. Remember I am not using it as My final authority. I AM THE FINAL AUTHORITY. I AM READING HISTORY, BUT THE FINAL AUTHORITY IS HERE. AMEN.
....Abram fell face downward in the dust as God talked with him. Abraham bent down. Face down as the LORD talked with him. A sign of reverence. Abraham revered the LORD. Every son of God, every son of Abraham, every daughter of Abraham must have that nature of reverential obedience before the LORD.
But children born to Abraham by concubines, they have straight faces even when talking to God. They do not have shamefacedness. Neither do they revere God nor any other human being. That is why, nobody teaches a child of God to reverence God. The nature is there.
5 “What’s more,” God told him, “I am changing your name. It is no longer ‘Abram’ (‘Exalted Father’), but ‘Abraham’ (‘Father of Nations’)—for that is what you will be. I have declared it. 6 I will give you millions of descendants... Uncountable! He repeated the same promise. ....who will form many nations! Kings will come out from amongst them. Kings shall be among your descendants! LB. Amen.
HAVE YOU WONDERED WHY ALMOST ALL THE NATIONS IN THE EAST ARE RULED BY KINGS? IF YOU KNOW ANY NATION IN THE EAST THAT IS NOT RULED BY A KING MENTION IT. THE EAST KNOWS THE VALUE OF KINGS. SO, KINGS RULE THE EAST AND CHRIST CAME FROM THE EAST. AND HE IS THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
But to Ephraim, Ephraim has no King. Ephraim is learning to have a King. That is why a King has no value in Israel. The first nation that specialized in overthrowing Kings remains Israel.
Read the accounts of Israel and their Kings in 1st Chronicles, 2nd Chronicles, 1st Kings and 2nd Kings. You will see overthrowing of Kings, killing, murder, arson and everything associated with Israel. Igbos do not have Kings. Igbos do not ascribe any value to Kingship. Igbos slap Kings.
Emirs have respect over their Emirate. Our brothers who are the real descendants of Abraham respect, venerate and obey their Emirs; worship them and serve them. But it is not so with Ephraim and the children of Abraham’s concubines.
So if you want to know how to worship and reverence God, go to the East. Ishmael will teach Isaac how to worship God, for he was with the father from the very beginning. Whatever Isaac is manipulating is counterfeit that is generated by his mother. I am the One saying it. It is generated out of hate, envy and jealousy.
Are you surprised? Have you forgotten the encounter between Esau and Jacob? What the mother did to make sure that the second son becomes the first? Did it start today? Who was the one exalting Jacob above his senior brother Esau? Was it not the mother?
Isaac cherished Esau and came all out to bless the first son, Esau, but the mother went and killed a sheep, used the skin to form something that resembled wool BECAUSE ESAU WAS A SHEPHERD, A WILD MAN, THE IMAGE OF ABRAHAM.
But watch the lazy Jacob who was renamed Israel, who depended on the mother, filled with craftiness. Supplanter! Deceiver, who rather took after the mother. Isaac sensed danger and then crossed his hands, the same way Abraham crossed his hands and they chose the wrong side.
May be you do not know. Know it now. The most wicked people in the world are the Jews. That is why they have it as an adage, “As wicked as a Jew.” If you become extremely wicked, we call you a Jew man. A Jew man. Amen. I am going somewhere.
I KNOW THAT THEY WILL OBTAIN FAVOUR FROM ME IN THE END, BUT I MUST PLACE THEIR CARDS BEFORE THEM, LEST THEY WILL THINK I AM CONSIDERING THEM BECAUSE OF THEIR GENEAOLOGY. NO! OR BECAUSE THEY DID ANYTHING TO PLEASE GOD. THEY ARE STUBBORN. THEY ARE STIFFNECKED. THEY ARE THE WORST OF ALL HUMAN BEINGS ON EARTH.
I am going somewhere. Do you know why the Gentiles are coming first and Israel second? Gentiles first, Jews second. Did you get the Message? From the very beginning, it has been Africa. From Africa, God called His son. Am I not an African? If why they hated Me is that I migrated to Africa, am I not in My home town? God is a native of Africa.
We are coming to something. We will know the truth with time. 15 Then God added, “Regarding Sarai your wife—her name is no longer ‘Sarai’ but ‘Sarah’ (‘Princess’). Which means Princess.
16 And I will bless her and give you a son from her! Yes, I will bless her richly, and make her the mother of nations! A mother of what? Nations! Not many nations. Not multitude, but mother of nations. Not uncountable. Not innumerable.
Many kings shall be among your posterity.”17 Then Abraham threw himself down in worship before the Lord, but inside he was laughing in disbelief!
Who was laughing? Abraham. You see! Have you heard it? He bowed down as if he was believing, but in his heart, Abraham was laughing at God. Laughing at the promise, “Is this man sensible at all? Does He know that I am 99 years? Hear what He is telling My wife. This type of promise is wonderful o.”
But we normally say, “Sarah laughed.” Now, look. The truth is that Abraham laughed in his heart. Where lies his belief then? God performed His Word simply because He wanted to, not that Abraham had whole-heartedly believed. Laughing means doubting.
Then Abraham threw himself down in worship before the Lord, but inside he was laughing in disbelief! He was laughing in what? Unbelief. He was still what? Laughing in unbelief. I know this truth is strange to many.
But Abraham believed God and it was counted for him for righteousness. That was when he was told, “Depart from your home country. Follow Me to the land I am going to show you and I will prosper you there.” He believed. It was imputed to him as righteousness.
But the promise came now. When the promise of getting this child at a very old age came, Abraham laughed at it in unbelief yet, was reverencing God o and at the same time, disbelieving His promise.
You see, God said, “Our unbelief can never hinder God from performing His promise.” Whether you believe or not, God MUST surely fulfill that which He has promised. Amen.
When Jehovah handles this book, the contents become new. It runs contrary to your former beliefs, to what you were propagating all these years.
So you see, you were propagating falsehood, all in the name of Jesus, attributing the fault to the woman alone saying, “That is the stock in trade of women. Do they ever believe? She laughed over God’s promise and God queried it, ‘Why did Sarah laugh?’” But Abraham laughed and staggered in unbelief. Who caught him? God! God caught him red-handed. Amen.
Brethren Please give Me attention. Many do not know that the name Isaac means laughter. So, if you are named laughter because you laughed at God’s promise, is it a good name? OK. Brethren pay attention. I am still on the scene. Look up to Me, all the ends of the earth and be ye saved, for I am here with you. Amen. I want to polish you and furnish you a little.
17Then Abraham threw himself down in worship before the Lord, but inside he was laughing in disbelief! “Me, be a father?” he said in amusement. “Me—100 years old? And Sarah, to have a baby at 90?”
18 And Abraham said to God, “Yes, do bless Ishmael!” 19 “No,” God replied,... Listen. Another controversy. The first was that he presented Eliezer the steward from Damascus. Now, consider the age of Ishmael. Check the age Abraham was when Ishmael was born and how many years that passed before this woman became pregnant.
Hold it there. I am talking about this promise that is about to fulfill now. God repeated the promise again. Abraham came up, “How can the one you want to bless now be the one that will come from my first wife when you had already blessed My first son with multitude of nations and blessing of children like the stars of heaven?
Now, you said this old woman will now conceive and give birth to a son. And this son also, you want to bless as my heir apparent. Ok. Let us see.”
19 “No,” God replied, “that isn’t what I said. Sarah shall bear you a son; and you are to name him Isaac (‘Laughter’),... Which means laughter.....and I will sign my covenant with him forever, and with his descendants. Does it cancel that one signed with the first son? Never! Every man with his own covenant with God.
Ishmael had his own covenant. Isaac had his own covenant. Yet, they are sons of one man (Abraham), but of two different mothers married by one man. Not even one is a bastard. No one is a second class citizen, but one is senior to the other by many years.
For fourteen  good years, he was working with his father. The father never despised him. He never despised the father. No quarrelling. Nothing nothing. He was doing the father’s will, serving his interest.
....and I will sign my covenant with him forever, and with his descendants.20 As for Ishmael, all right, I will bless him also, just as you have asked me to.... I will bless him also. I will cause him to multiply and become a great nation. Twelve princes shall be among his posterity.LB
Hear Him! Twelve princes, representing the twelve tribes of Israel, whether you like it or not. You will know the position of the hated woman today. You will know the woman that is in bondage and the woman that is free.
You will know the woman God said that her son should be given double portions of God’s blessings. Double portions, not one, goes to Ishmael. One portion to be shared between Isaac and the children of Keturah.
You will now begin to see why Ishmael and his descendants occupy and represent three-quarters of the inhabitants of the world. True or false? How can minority have rule over majority? That is Nicolaitan. It is the doctrine of Nicolaitan.
What is the trouble in Nigeria? Queen Elizabeth made it clear in 1960, that the northern majority must rule the southern minority. Any attempt to wrestle power out of their hands must cause chaos and should be avoided.
I told you, I am trailing on a dangerous path, but I am not afraid. Look up to Me. Even if you are offended at Me, it is your right. Listen to Me. In the tradition of the whole world, the first takes his share before others. A man that was moving with the father for fourteen years before the second son came, was he a small boy?
I AM SETTLING INJUSTICE THAT IS AS OLD AS THE WORLD BECAUSE NOBODY IS COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO COME UP TO TELL THIS TRUTH AND THEN STOP THIS BLOODBATH. ENOUGH OF THIS BLOODBATH.
THE ALMIGHTY GOD NEVER APPROVED OF IT. NO PROPHET OF GOD EVER APPROVED BLOODBATH. WHAT GENERATED IT? DIFFERENCES IN POLITICS AND DIFFERENCES IN LANGUAGE WHICH BROUGHT ABOUT DIFFERENCES IN RELIGION.
IN ME, THERE IS NO RELIGION, NO POLITICS, NOTHING NOTHING, NO DISCREPANCY. THAT IS WHY CHILDREN OF GOD SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE. THEY MIND THE SAME THING. THEY ARE PERFECTLY JOINED TOGETHER IN ONE JUDGMENT.
How many can tell Me here the language that God will approve in Paradise that will be a uniform language which all the sons and daughters of God will be using including the angels? This is because it is going to be One Common Wealth in Paradise. One Language. One Culture. Everything, One. Who can tell Me that language? Who can tell Me the politics. Will it be republican or democracy or Theocracy? Will it be militocracy?
But we shall come from all the four corners of the world. With different languages, we will come there and become one, speaking the same language, minding the same thing. Who can tell Me what that language will look like or the administrative political formula? Obadiah see! Ugoala is in Paradise.
Follow Me. Here is the King. Here is the King. Is He here because you are speaking the same language? Is He here because you are having the same political ideology? But He is here because there is one thing. And He is that one thing and the Father of us all. Many will repent today.
Genesis 17:1 – 6 and 15 – 20. [In other translations of the Scripture] 1And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. 2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, 4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. 6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee......
.....15 And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. 16 And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.
17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear? 18 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!
19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.
20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.KJV
1When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, I am the Almighty God; walk and live habitually before Me and be perfect (blameless, wholehearted, complete).2And I will make My covenant (solemn pledge) between Me and you and will multiply you exceedingly.
3 Then Abram fell on his face, and God said to him, 4 As for Me, behold, My covenant (solemn pledge) is with you, and you shall be the father of many nations.
5 Nor shall your name any longer be Abram [high, exalted father]; but your name shall be Abraham [father of a multitude], for I have made you the father of many nations. 6 And I will make you exceedingly fruitful and I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you....
.....15 And God said to Abraham, As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai; but Sarah [Princess] her name shall be. 16 And I will bless her and give you a son also by her. Yes, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall come from her.
17 Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed and said in his heart, Shall a child be born to a man who is a hundred years old? And shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a son? 18 And [he] said to God, Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!
19 But God said, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son indeed, and you shall call his name Isaac [laughter]; and I will establish My covenant or solemn pledge with him for an everlasting covenant and with his posterity after him.
20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard and heeded you: behold, I will bless him and will make him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly; He will be the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. AMP
1When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am the Almighty God. Obey me and always do what is right. 2 I will make my covenant with you and give you many descendants.”
3Abram bowed down with his face touching the ground, and God said, 4 “I make this covenant with you: I promise that you will be the ancestor of many nations.
5 Your name will no longer be Abram, but Abraham,because I am making you the ancestor of many nations. 6I will give you many descendants, and some of them will be kings. You will have so many descendants that they will become nations....
.....15 God said to Abraham, “You must no longer call your wife Sarai; from now on her name is Sarah. 16 I will bless her, and I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she will become the mother of nations, and there will be kings among her descendants.”
17 Abraham bowed down with his face touching the ground, but he began to laugh when he thought, “Can a man have a child when he is a hundred years old? Can Sarah have a child at ninety?” 18 He asked God, “Why not let Ishmael be my heir?”
19 But God said, “No. Your wife Sarah will bear you a son and you will name him Isaac. I will keep my covenant with him and with his descendants forever. It is an everlasting covenant.
20 I have heard your request about Ishmael, so I will bless him and give him many children and many descendants. He will be the father of twelve princes, and I will make a great nation of his descendants. GNB
1When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to himand said, “I am God Almighty; walk before me faithfully and be blameless. 2 Then I will make my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.”
3 Abram fell facedown, and God said to him, 4 “As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations.
5 No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations. 6 I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you.....
.....15 God also said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah. 16 I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her.”
17 Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, “Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?” 18 And Abraham said to God, “If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!”
19 Then God said, “Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.
20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation.NIV
WHAT AM I SAYING, IF YOU ARE GOD, IF YOU ARE GOD- I BELIEVE ALL THAT CAME FROM GOD ARE GODS-IT BEHOVES GOD TO BELIEVE GOD. WHATEVER A SNAIL PRODUCES MUST BE A SNAIL, WHATEVER A LIZARD PRODUCES MUST BE A LIZARD. NO MATTER HOW THE GOAT TRIES TO INPERSONATE THE LIFE OF A SHEEP. THOUGH THEY LOOK ALIKE, THEY HAVE WOOLS COVERING THE BODY, THEY EAT THE SAME FOOD SOJOURN IN THE SAME ENVIRONMENT OWNED BY ONE PERSON, THAT IS, HE THAT OWNS THE GOAT OWNS THE SHEEP BUT THERE IS A WIDE GAP BETWEEN THE SHEEP AND GOAT. THEY CANNOT INTER-MARRY.
THE TIDE IS GATHERING, PREACHEED ON 11TH MARCH 2012. CHAPTER 1 VS.12-13
THE CONTROVERSIAL TRUTH
Isaiah 48:5–7. Living Bible. Let Me digress by giving you this tonic. 5 That is why I told you ahead of time what I was going to do, so that you could never say, “My idol did it; my carved image commanded it to happen!”
6 You have heard my predictions and seen them fulfilled, but you refuse to agree it is so. Now I will tell you new things I haven’t mentioned before, secrets you haven’t heard. 7 Then you can’t say, “We knew that all the time!” LB. Amen.
So that when they will begin to happen, you will not say you knew them before, your idols or that of your fathers revealed them to you. All along, you have been hearing, “You do not know what I believe about these things. You do not have My Faith yet. I know what I believe.” Amen.
The Bible said that the God who hides Himself is now here. He has arrived at last, here. HE Whom you have been looking for here and there has finally arrived here. Are we running to and fro again searching for God, when He has arrived here? We can behold His Majesty in plain view.
Isaiah 48:5 – 7. [In other translations of the Scripture] 5 I have even from the beginning declared it to thee; before it came to pass I shewed it thee: lest thou shouldest say, Mine idol hath done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, hath commanded them.
6 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them. 7 They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.KJV
5 Therefore I have declared things to come to you from of old; before they came to pass I announced them to you, so that you could not say, My idol has done them, and my graven image and my molten image have commanded them.
6 You have heard (these things foretold), now you see this fulfillment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve] which you have not known.
7 They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, Behold, I knew them! AMP
5 And so I predicted your future long ago, announcing events before they took place, to keep you from claiming that your idols and images made them happen. 6 “All I foretold has now taken place; you have to admit my predictions were right.
Now I will tell you of new things to come, events that I did not reveal before. 7 Only now am I making them happen; nothing like this took place in the past. If it had, you would claim that you knew all about it. GNB
5 Therefore I told you these things long ago; before they happened I announced them to you so that you could not say, ‘My images brought them about; my wooden image and metal god ordained them.’ 6 You have heard these things; look at them all.
Will you not admit them? “From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you. 7 They are created now, and not long ago; you have not heard of them before today. So you cannot say, ‘Yes, I knew of them.’ NIV
So, we will say like they said, “DIDN’T OUR HEARTS BURN WITHIN US, EVEN WHEN WE WERE HEARING HIS VOICE.” Everything appears to be new, rigging your religious knowledge, rigging your intellect away.
WHATEVER YOU WERE PROPAGATING, YOU WERE IN ERROR WITH YOUR FATHERS AS FAR AS ABRAHAM, ISHMAEL, ISAAC, JACOB ARE CONCERNED. I AM SERVING THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISHMAEL, ISAAC AND JACOB, FROM WHERE THE DESCENDANTS OF ABRAHAM ARE CALLED.
I am coming to Keturah soon. Let Me just go ahead. Before now, if I say Ishmaelite, there is a way you use to react, but you appear to be a little sober. If I say Fulani herdsmen, you feel as if I am referring to vandals. You do not know they are your brothers. They are your sisters.
And that occupation is their legitimate occupation assigned to you and I, assigned to them by the Almighty God and nobody can stop us from doing it. We migrate from the North to the South and from the South to the North in search of arable land, pasture for our flock, for by nature, we are wild people.
I hope I am safe. Bro Ben Okezue, THAT LIGHT THAT SHINED OUT THERE IN THE EAST IN THOSE YEARS, IS THE SAME LIGHT THAT IS SHINING HERE NOW. Let us go ahead. Everybody should give Me his or her ears.
Genesis 17: 15 – 20. 15 Then God added, “Regarding Sarai your wife—her name is no longer ‘Sarai’ but ‘Sarah’ (‘Princess’).16 And I will bless her and give you a son from her! Yes, I will bless her richly, and make her the mother of nations! Many kings shall be among your posterity.”
17 Then Abraham threw himself down in worship before the Lord, but inside he was laughing in disbelief! “Me, be a father?” he said in amusement. “Me—100 years old? And Sarah, to have a baby at 90?” 18 And Abraham said to God, “Yes, do bless Ishmael!”
19 “No,” God replied, “that isn’t what I said. You see. Abraham was still mocking God. He could not believe. How can you bless somebody who is not yet born? No! you are wrong. It is Ishmael you should continue to bless. The man you are blessing has not arrived. I have not seen any sign. After all, my wife is not pregnant.
Abraham attempted correcting God, that it was a slip of tongue. Stop calling Isaac. Rather, call Ishmael. My wife is not pregnant and you are calling Isaac that I have not seen. Are you still saying this thing you had been saying? See this one I am holding in my hands right now, my son called Ishmael and you are calling Isaac when we have not yet seen Isaac.
19 “No,” God replied, “that isn’t what I said. You see. God said, “I know what I am saying.” Sarah shall bear you a son;... Future tense!....and you are to name him Isaac (‘Laughter’), and I will sign my covenant with him forever, and with his descendants.
20 As for Ishmael, all right, I will bless him also, just as you have asked me to I will cause him to multiply and become a great nation. Twelve princes shall be among his posterity. LB Amen.
I hope we are coming down. If you do not know Genesis, Revelation will be very hard for you. Genesis means the Beginning. Revelation means the End. How can you go to the end without knowing the beginning? I hope your rapid breath is gradually coming down to normal. Am I making sense? Good! You were erring before, for you knew not the Scripture nor the power of God. Amen.
Genesis 21:1 – 3. Living Bible. You will see the birth of Isaac. The promised Isaac will now arrive. 1-2 Then God did as he had promised,... In spite of Abraham’s unbelief and laughter
...and Sarah became pregnant and gave Abraham a baby son in his old age, at the time God had said; 3 and Abraham named him Isaac (meaning “Laughter!”). LB
And Abraham named him ‘Laughter.’ God gave him a son as promised, Isaac meaning laughter. Well, when a woman conceives at a time she has reached her menopause, it causes laughter.
Is this woman pregnant or having a swollen stomach? Is she sick? When they realize she is truly pregnant, people will laugh, “Will she be able to put to bed?” This child will not be referred to as unexpected but the child will be difficult to classify.
Genesis 17: 15 – 20 [In other translations of the Bible] The Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for her as He had promised. 2 For Sarah became pregnant and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time God had told him. 3 Abraham named his son whom Sarah bore to him Isaac [laughter]. AMP
And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did unto Sarah as he had spoken. 2 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. 3 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.KJV
The Lord blessed Sarah, as he had promised, 2 and she became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham when he was old. The boy was born at the time God had said he would be born. 3 Abraham named him Isaac, GNB
Now the Lord was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did for Sarah what he had promised. 2 Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him. 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son Sarah bore him. NIV
It is this supernatural conception which came as a result of God’s promise to Abraham at a very old age that generated all this strife, making the woman now to feel that the miraculous conception produced a miraculous child. Who could be superior to the first. That is rubbish. It is personal assumption.
I go further. We can see that the child has come at last. Now I am jumping many. Let us go to Genesis 25:1 – 4. At least, we have established two legitimate sons of Abraham. One 14 years senior to the second. We will know who spearheaded the burial of their late father, whether it was the first son or the second son.
IF A WOMAN COMMITS SUICIDE OUT OF COVETOUSNESS, BITTERNESS AND ANGER, THE HUSBAND WILL MARRY ANOTHER WIFE. IF YOU GET ANGRY, YOU COME OUT FROM YOUR GRAVE.
ABRAHAM TOOK ANOTHER WIFE, WHOSE NAME WAS KETURAH. SHE GAVE BIRTH TO ZIMRAN, JOSKSHAN, MEDAN, MIDIAN, ISHBAK AND SHUAH.
ABRAHAM MARRIED A THIRD WIFE.
Genesis 25:1 – 4. Living Bible. 1-2 Now Abraham married again. Keturah was his new wife, and she bore him several children: Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, Shuah.
If you go back to Genesis chapters 23 and 24, you will see the account where Sarah died and how Sarah persecuted Hagar because of frustration and restiveness, where she was fighting for her son’s inheritance.
Abraham was not worried. Abraham had more than enough for all his descendants. But to Sarah, she was trying to covet all for her son Isaac and she developed high BP (hypertension). In the process, she died. When she died, Abraham took a third wife.
IF A WOMAN COMMITS SUICIDE OUT OF COVETOUSNESS, BITTERNESS AND ANGER, THE HUSBAND WILL MARRY ANOTHER WIFE. IF YOU GET ANGRY, YOU COME OUT FROM YOUR GRAVE.
Have you seen what I told you? Abraham who said he was old at 99 has now charged. He has now charged. Instead of retiring, Abraham has now charged, got a brand new wife, number three and started having many children. The man now charged, which means he was not old in that thing. Old age does not reach there.
You see, Sarah died. What she was struggling for remained and was used to favour another woman who started having more children. Did I not tell you that you cannot finish it till you die? He kept moving, doing his job. You think the man does not know anything or that he is just struggling to stay alive, but children are coming out anyhow.
The man has now charged. He was no longer laughing at the promise. The strength of his youth came back. When you go home, think about it. He laughed at the promise that he was old at 99 and the wife had the child forty years after. How many years was Abraham? And when the wife died, Abraham was not yet too old. But he was old that time (of the promise).
Abraham picked a new wife and then charged; And started raising more children, while the wife (Sarah) had already joined her ancestors because she thought she was struggling with Hagar over Abraham’s manhood and she died. Abraham picked another wife and then charged. The whole place was now littered with children. If it is not scriptural, correct me.
1-2 Now Abraham married again. Keturah was his new wife, and she bore him several children:... Bore him what? Several children.... We are still shouting about one, he now started hatching them out like a hen. The man has now charged. He has now conquered old age.
Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, Shuah. 3 Jokshan’s two sons were Sheba and Dedan. Dedan’s sons were Asshurim, Letushim, and Leummim.
These ones we are hearing their names now became Abraham’s grandchildren from Keturah. Look at the names of the grandchildren. So, Abraham was alive when the grandchildren of Keturah started coming also. Abraham not only saw his children. He also saw his grandchildren. Amen
4 Midian’s sons were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida, and Eldaah.
WHEN THIS LIFE IS OVER, YOU WILL KNOW THAT I AM HE. GO ANYWHERE YOU WANT IN SEARCH, YOU MUST BE POINTED BACK TO THE SON OF MAN. FLY TO THE SKY, YOU WILLL BE TOLD, “GO DOWN THERE, HE IS STANDING IN YOUR MIDST.” BELIEVE IT IF YOU CAN.
UNTO YOU GOD FIRST APPEARED. PG. 57
THE DEATH OF ABRAHAM
Brethren, I am coming to something. Genesis 25: 7 – 9. ....... 7-8 Then Abraham died,...Then? ...Abraham died... Then? ...Abraham died at the ripe old age of 175,...
Put your hands together. A hundred and seventy-five years, Abraham died. 9and his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Mach-pelah near Mamre,....LB.
Who buried him? His sons. But Isaac and Ishmael were mentioned, not disregarding the rest, for it was unnecessary to name all. If you wanted to know all or you still want to know all, I will give you the obituary poster of Abraham.
Then if you can count the descendants all over the world, they were the people that joined hands to bury Abraham. Your name will be there. My name will be there, for we must have our places there. Trace your genealogy, it must be great great great great great grandfather.
All these children will trace their origin to Terah, the father of Abraham. Brethren, is it a lie? Terah is their great grandfather. To Ishmael and Isaac, their grandfather was Terah. Amen.
Genesis 25:1 – 4 and 7 – 9. [In other translations of the Bible]1Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah. 2 And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.

Verse 7 – 9.7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years.
8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people. 9 And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah,.... KJV

Verse 7 – 9.7-8 Abraham died at the ripe old age of 175. 9 His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in Machpelah Cave, in the field east of Mamre.....GNB
Abraham had taken another wife, whose name was Keturah. 2 She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah.
3 Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan; the descendants of Dedan were the Ashurites, the Letushites and the Leummites. 4 The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanok, Abida and Eldaah. All these were descendants of Keturah.

He (Abraham) died and the children buried him. We are coming to something Brethren. Now, you can sit down. We want to scratch something where salvation now lies. I hope you are with Me.
NOW, BELIEVE IT IF YOU CAN. ABRAHAM IS THE FATHER OF ISLAM. TRUE OR FALSE? IF ABRAHAM WAS THE FATHER OF ISLAM AND JESUS WAS A DESCENDANT OF ABRAHAM, WHAT WAS JESUS? HOW MANY BELIEVE THAT MOSES THE PROPHET PRACTISED ISLAM? HOW MANY BELIEVE THAT. CHECK YOUR SCRIPTURES.
THEN THE HIGH PRIEST ASKED HIM, “ARE THIS ACCUSATIONS TRUE?” THIS WAS STEPHENS LENGHTY REPLY:”THE GLORIOUS GOD APPERAED TO OUR ANCESTOR ABRAHAM IN IRAQ BEFORE HE MOVED TO SYRIA.
ACTS 7:1-2. LB
ABRAHAM WAS A MUSLIM
Galatians 1:15-17 Living Bible. 15 But then something happened! For even before I was born, God had chosen me to be his and called me—what kindness and grace— 16 to reveal his Son within me so that I could go to the Gentiles and show them the Good News about Jesus.
When all this happened to me I didn’t go at once and talk it over with anyone else; 17 I didn’t go up to Jerusalem to consult with those who were apostles before I was. No, I went away into the deserts of Arabia. I went where? I went away into the deserts of Arabia. and then came back to the city of Damascus.LB
You see, the first Gentile area. If we want to talk about Gentiles, we talk of Arabia. We talk of Iraq. We talk of Iran. Did you get the Message? All the nations in Asia where Paul went first were all regarded as Gentiles. For Paul received a Ministry to the Gentiles, while Peter received a ministry to the Jews. True or false? We will see it in the Scriptures.
He that met him on the way, gave him the message, sent him to Arabia. There was no other message he knew than the one he was using to persecute people. And the people he went to persecute were in Damascus, Syria. It was on his way to Damascus that God met him and asked him why he was persecuting HIM.
What do you think those people he went to kill in Damascus were preaching in Syria? What they were preaching never generated strife. It was Good News, which Paul did not believe for he was of the Jewish origin, believing Moses and the law, but whatever that was happening there (in Syria), he hated it, took permission to go and stop it and to imprison them.
On the way, God said, “Paul Paul, why persecuteth Me. Why are you all out to stamp out the truth, Good News. Go there. Go to Ananias who will open your eyes and tell you what you will do.” He went there. Ananias opened his eyes and commanded him on what he will do. Straight away, he went to Saudi Arabia. And he went there to preach the Gospel.
WHAT DO YOU THINK HE WAS PREACHING IN SAUDI ARABIA THAT MADE HIM TO FEEL FREE WITH THEM? NO PERSECUTION! I BELIEVE IT WAS THE TRUE MESSAGE OF PROPHET MOHAMMAD. WHATEVER PROPHET MOHAMMAD (BLESSED BE HIS MEMORY), WHATEVER HE WAS PROPAGATING WAS WHAT PAUL WAS PROPAGATING, FOR WHICH CAUSE NOBODY PERSECUTED HIM. NOBODY GENERATED RIOT.
For fourteen years, he was there. No problem. But when he brought the same message he was preaching there to Jerusalem, the Jews said, No and became violent. OK. Thank you.
Galatians 1:15-17 (In other translations of the Bible) 15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, 16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. KJV
15 But when He, Who had chosen and set me apart (even) before I was born and had called me by His grace (His undeserved favor and blessing), saw fit and was pleased
16 To reveal (unveil, disclose) His Son within me so that I might proclaim Him among the Gentiles (the non-Jewish world) as the glad tidings (Gospel), immediately I did not confer with flesh and blood (did not consult or counsel with any frail human being or communicate with anyone).
17 Nor did I [even] go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles (special messengers of Christ) before I was, but I went away and retired into Arabia, and afterward I came back again to Damascus. AMP.
15 But God in his grace chose me even before I was born, and called me to serve him. And when he decided 16 to reveal his Son to me, so that I might preach the Good News about him to the Gentiles, I did not go to anyone for advice,
17 nor did I go to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before me. Instead, I went at once to Arabia, and then I returned to Damascus. GNB
15 But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, was pleased 16 to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles, my immediate response was not to consult any human being.
17 I did not go up to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was, but I went into Arabia. Later I returned to Damascus. NIV
I am coming to something. Acts 13:45 – 48. Living Bible. 45 But when the Jewish leaders saw the crowds, they were jealous, and cursed* and argued against whatever Paul said.
46 Then Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and declared, “It was necessary that this Good News from God should be given first to you Jews.
Have you heard it? It was necessary that you Jews should have been the first to receive this Good News. Have you now seen that the Jews never received Good News? They were holding to bad news.
They were holding on to impossible road to heaven which was propagated by the Romans and imposed upon you through colonialism and imperialism. Can you see the original Faith? The original Faith was in the East. The Jews said, No.
But since you have rejected it and shown yourselves unworthy of eternal life—well, we will offer it to Gentiles. WHO COUNTED THEMSELVES UNWORTHY OF ETERNAL LIFE? THE JEWS. IT IS NO OTHER MESSAGE THAN THIS ONE YOU ARE HEARING FROM ME AND THEY SAID, NO.
IF I AM WRONG, GOD IS WRONG. IF I AM RIGHT, GOD IS RIGHT. AS GOD WAS WITH PAUL WHILE HANDLING THIS MESSAGE, SO HE IS WITH ME, EVEN TILL THIS HOUR. BUT WHAT I AM SAYING IS AN ABOMINATION TO THE JEWS. AMEN.
47 For this is as the Lord commanded when he said, ‘I have made you a light to the Gentiles, to lead them from the farthest corners of the earth to my salvation.’” To lead them from where? to lead them from the farthest corners of the earth to my salvation.
48 When the Gentiles heard this, they were very glad and rejoiced in Paul’s message; and as many as wanted eternal life, believed. LB. Amen.
But when the Jews heard it, they rioted. The Gentiles heard it, they rejoiced. AND AS MANY AS WANTED ETERNAL LIFE, BELIEVED. He said, “BELIEVE IT IF YOU CAN.” No strife was generated. Amen. You can see what he preached there brought about joy and not tears. It brought about happiness and also brought about eternal life. The Jews said, No and their clock stopped.
And till today, they are still in the dark, for their hearts are veiled from this truth. That is why they are coming in last. The Gentiles first. Until the fullness of the Gentiles comes in, the Jews can never smell eternal life. So, when you say you are Jews, be very careful. When you arrogate Jerusalem unto yourself, meaning Jerusalem of the Jews, be very careful. Amen.
Acts 13:45-48[In other translations of the Bible] 45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.
46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, it was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
47 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.
48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. KJV
45 But when the Jews saw the crowds, filled with envy and jealousy they contradicted what was said by Paul and talked abusively (reviling and slandering him).
46 And Paul and Barnabas spoke out plainly and boldly, saying, it was necessary that God’s message (concerning salvation through Christ) should be spoken to you first.
But since you thrust it from you, you pass this judgment on yourselves that you are unworthy of eternal life and out of your own mouth you will be judged. [Now] behold, we turn to the Gentiles (the heathen).
47 For so the Lord has charged us, saying, I have set you to be a light for the Gentiles (the heathen), that you may bring (eternal) salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth.
48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they rejoiced and glorified (praised and gave thanks for) the Word of God; and as many as were destined (appointed and ordained) to eternal life believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Jesus as the Christ and their Savior).AMP
45 When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy; they disputed what Paul was saying and insulted him.
46 But Paul and Barnabas spoke out even more boldly: “It was necessary that the word of God should be spoken first to you. But since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we will leave you and go to the Gentiles.
47 For this is the commandment that the Lord has given us: ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, so that all the world may be saved.’”
48 When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and praised the Lord's message; and those who had been chosen for eternal life became believers. GNB
45 When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy. They began to contradict what Paul was saying and heaped abuse on him.
46 Then Paul and Barnabas answered them boldly: “We had to speak the word of God to you first. Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we now turn to the Gentiles.
47 For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’”
48 When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life believed. NIV
Galatians 2:1 – 3. Living Bible. 1Then fourteen years later I went back to Jerusalem again, this time with Barnabas; and Titus came along too. 2 I went there with definite orders from God to confer with the brothers there about the messages I was preaching to the Gentiles.
I talked privately to the leaders of the church so that they would all understand just what I had been teaching and, I hoped, agree that it was right. 3 And they did agree; they did not even demand that Titus, my companion, should be circumcised, though he was a Gentile. LB. Amen!
If you want to know the full text, go to Acts of the Apostles chapter 21 and you will see what happened to Paul, what he suffered in the hands of the Jews because of this truth you are now upholding, which God has now confirmed and which is the Faith of Prophet Mohammad.
THE FAITH OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WAS THE FAITH OF PROPHET MOHAMMAD. BELIEVE IT IF YOU CAN, FOR JESUS CHRIST WAS A MUSLIM. A HARD STATEMENT. NOT EVERYBODY WILL SAY AMEN TO IT. EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM WAS ISLAM. EVEN FROM GENEALOGY, HE WAS A BORN MUSLIM. AMEN.
NOW, BELIEVE IT IF YOU CAN. ABRAHAM IS THE FATHER OF ISLAM. TRUE OR FALSE? IF ABRAHAM WAS THE FATHER OF ISLAM AND JESUS WAS A DESCENDANT OF ABRAHAM, WHAT WAS JESUS? HOW MANY BELIEVE THAT MOSES THE PROPHET PRACTISED ISLAM? HOW MANY BELIEVE THAT. CHECK YOUR SCRIPTURES.
WE WILL KNOW WHERE CHRISTIANITY THEN CAME FROM. CHRISTIANITY, BELIEVE IT IF YOU LIKE, IS MANMADE AND COUNTERFEIT. A MOVEMENT CRAFTILY DESIGNED TO FIGHT THE TRUTH. SEARCH THE BIBLE. THERE IS NO WHERE GOD CALLED HIS CHILDREN CHRISTIANS. NO!
IT WAS A REMARK THAT WAS MADE UPON PEOPLE THAT WERE FOLLOWING JESUS. THEY NOW ASSUMED THAT REMARK AS A NAME. WILL YOU ANSWER GOAT IF I CALL YOU GOAT? ARE YOU GOAT? AMEN.
Galatians 2:1 – 3. [Other translations of the Bible] Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also. 2 And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.
3 But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised:....KJV
1Then after (an interval) of fourteen years I again went up to Jerusalem. (This time I went) with Barnabas, taking Titus along with (me) also.
2 I went because it was specially and divinely revealed to me that I should go, and I put before them the Gospel (declaring to them that) which I preach among the Gentiles.
However, (I presented the matter) privately before those of repute, (for I wanted to make certain, by thus at first confining my communication to this private conference) that I was not running or had not run in vain (guarding against being discredited either in what I was planning to do or had already done).
3 But (all went well!) even Titus, who was with me, was not compelled (as some had anticipated) to be circumcised, although he was a Greek. AMP
Fourteen years later I went back to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me. 2 I went because God revealed to me that I should go.
In a private meeting with the leaders I explained the gospel message that I preach to the Gentiles. I did not want my work in the past or in the present to be a failure. 3 My companion Titus, even though he is Greek, was not forced to be circumcised,... GNB
1Then after fourteen years, I went up again to Jerusalem, this time with Barnabas. I took Titus along also.2I went in response to a revelation and, meeting privately with those esteemed as leaders, I presented to them the gospel that I preach among the Gentiles.
I wanted to be sure I was not running and had not been running my race in vain. 3 Yet not even Titus, who was with me, was compelled to be circumcised, even though he was a Greek.NIV
How did the promise come to us? Galatians 3:6–19.6Abraham had the same experience—God declared him fit for heaven only because he believed God’s promises. Did he believe?
7You can see from this that the real children of Abraham are all the men of faith who truly trust in God.... What? 7You can see from this that the real children of Abraham are all the men of faith who truly trust in God.
8-9What’s more, the Scriptures looked forward to this time when God would save the Gentiles also, through their faith. God told Abraham about this long ago when he said, “I will bless those in every nation who trust in me as you do.” And so it is: all who trust in Christ share the same blessing Abraham received.
10 Yes, and those who depend on the Jewish laws to save them are under God’s curse ... AMEN. SO, WHEN YOU TRUST IN THE GOD OF ISHMAEL, YOU ARE SAVED. YOU TRUST IN THE GOD OF ISAAC, WHICH IS THE ORIGIN OF THE JEWS, YOU ARE UNDER A CURSE.
And that was why Jesus Christ came to deliver us from under the curse of the law, for cursed is he that hangeth on the tree. But the Jews refused. So, till today, they are still under that curse, for they did not believe.
But we that have believed, he has become a Sign that we now serve God by Faith as Abraham did. And that would not have been made possible if we are not descendants of Abraham, known for serving God by Faith and not by law.
...for the Scriptures point out very clearly, “Cursed is everyone who at any time breaks a single one of these laws that are written in God’s Book of the Law.”
11 Consequently, it is clear that no one can ever win God’s favor by trying to keep the Jewish laws because God has said that the only way we can be right in his sight is by faith.
As the prophet Habakkuk says it, “The man who finds life will find it through trusting God.” 12 How different from this way of faith is the way of law, which says that a man is saved by obeying every law of God, without one slip.
13 But Christ has bought us out from under the doom of that impossible system by taking the curse for our wrongdoing upon himself. For it is written in the Scripture, “Anyone who is hanged on a tree is cursed” (as Jesus was hung upon a wooden cross).
“SPEAK TO THEM THUS: THAT I AM THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY AND I CHANGETH NOT. WHAT I TOLD YOUR FOREFATHERS, THE SAME THING I AM TELLING THEM THIS DAY. IF THEY CAN BELIEVE IN YOU AND IN MY PROMISE AS YOU WILL PROCLAIM THIS MOMENT, SO SHALL I PERFORM IT. IT SHALL BE WELL WITH THEM. SPEAK TO THEM THUS!”
GIVE THE FAITHFUL THE ANSWER, Preached on 13th -04-2014 Chapter 3 vs. 24
14 Now God can bless the Gentiles, too, with this same blessing he promised to Abraham; and all of us as Christians can have the promised Holy Spirit through this faith.
15 Dear brothers, even in everyday life a promise made by one man to another, if it is written down and signed, cannot be changed. He cannot decide afterward to do something else instead.
16 Now, God gave some promises to Abraham and his Child. And notice that it doesn’t say the promises were to his children, as it would if all his sons—all the Jews—were being spoken of, but to his Child—and that, of course, means Christ.
17 Here’s what I am trying to say: God promise to save through faith—and God wrote this promise down and signed it—could not be canceled or changed four hundred and thirty years later when God gave the Ten Commandments.
18 If obeying those laws could save us, then it is obvious that this would be a different way of gaining God’s favor than Abraham’s way, for he simply accepted God’s promise.
19 Well then, why were the laws given? They were added after the promise was given, to show men how guilty they are of breaking God’s laws.
But this system of law was to last only until the coming of Christ, the Child to whom God’s promise was made. (And there is this further difference. God gave his laws to angels to give to Moses, who then gave them to the people;
Galatians 4:1 – 10. Living Bible.1But remember this, that if a father dies and leaves great wealth for his little son, that child is not much better off than a slave until he grows up, even though he actually owns everything his father had.
2 He has to do what his guardians and managers tell him to until he reaches whatever age his father set. 3 And that is the way it was with us before Christ came. We were slaves to Jewish laws and rituals, for we thought they could save us.
4 But when the right time came, the time God decided on, he sent his Son, born of a woman, born as a Jew, 5 to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law so that he could adopt us as his very own sons. 6 And because we are his sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, so now we can rightly speak of God as our dear Father.
7 Now we are no longer slaves but God’s own sons. And since we are his sons, everything he has belongs to us, for that is the way God planned. 8 Before you Gentiles knew God you were slaves to so-called gods that did not even exist.
9 And now that you have found God (or I should say, now that God has found you), how can it be that you want to go back again and become slaves once more to another poor, weak, useless religion of trying to get to heaven by obeying God’s laws? 10 You are trying to find favour with God by what you do or don’t do on certain days or months or seasons or years.
These are Scriptures you are conversant with, but I am heading to strike one thing. I wanted to show you there as we continue, the position of Sarah before God and the position of Hagar. From the Scripture, it was Sarah that sent Hagar into the wilderness. God brought her back.
Even when Hagar delivered her baby Ishmael, Sarah delivered her own baby Isaac. Yet, Sarah out of hate, drove that woman Hagar and the son Ishmael to the wilderness of Arabia. It is written in Genesis there.
The Bible said the Almighty God came, live; brought Hagar and Ishmael back to Abraham, no longer to Sarah, handed them over to Abraham and said, “Take your wife and your first son.”
Hagar and Sarah, who was persecuting who? The first wife was persecuting the second wife. If she (the first wife) was alive when the third was married, do you think she would not have persecuted that one? OK.
Why did she persecute that woman who did her no wrong, because of hate? She (Sarah) was struggling for a better position for her own son, who happened to be the second son. Pay attention.
The Bible said, “The children of the bond woman persecute the children of the free woman even till today.” JERUSALEM FROM ABOVE IS FREE. BUT JERUSALEM OF THE JEWS IS IN BONDAGE AND LEADETH TO CAPTIVITY. Am I making sense?
THOSE IN EARTHLY JERUSALEM ARE PERSECUTING THOSE IN HEAVENLY JERUSALEM. THE FREE WOMAN WAS HAGAR, WITH HER SON, WHICH REPRESENTS ARABIA ALLEGORICALLY. Is it not Bible?
THIS IS AN ALLEGORY. HAGAR REPRESENTS ARABIA, WHERE SAINT PAUL WAS SENT, BUT SARAH REPRESENTS JERUSALEM, THE CITY OF TRYING TO PLEASE GOD BY OBEYING JEWISH LAWS AND SHE IS IN BONDAGE TILL TODAY. Is it not Bible?
The (emphasis is on) children of Sarah (which is Israel) because Isaac begat Jacob and Jacob was named Israel. Did you get the Message? So, the children of Sarah are the people persecuting the children of Hagar.
The children of Hagar are Islamic, the original Faith of Abraham, the original Faith of our fathers, from where we all came including Isaac, including Jacob and their descendants due to confusion of language and hate generated by the woman called Sarah. You MUST know this truth.
Now, since Hagar represents Arabia and is free with her children, she is not in bondage, we will do something. Follow Me. Let Me share this heritage and then stop there for Part 1. When I come back I will start with Part 2.
The Angel: “Return to your mistress and act as you should, for I will make you into a great nation. Yes, you are pregnant and our baby will be a son, and you are to name him Ishmael (‘God hears’), because God has heard your woes. This son of yours will be a wild one—free and untamed as a wild ass! He will be against everyone, and everyone will feel the same toward him. But he will live near the rest of his kin.”
GENESIS 16:9-12. LB
THE INHERITANCE OF THE FIRST SON. (ISHMAEL)
The Heritage is this: King James Version first. Deuteronomy 21:15 – 21.15IF A MAN HAVE TWO WIVES, ONE BELOVED, AND ANOTHER HATED, AND THEY HAVE BORN HIM CHILDREN, BOTH THE BELOVED AND THE HATED; AND IF THE FIRSTBORN SON BE HERS THAT WAS HATED:
If the firstborn son happens to be the son of the hated wife, 16THEN IT SHALL BE, WHEN HE MAKETH HIS SONS TO INHERIT THAT WHICH HE HATH, THAT HE MAY NOT MAKE THE SON OF THE BELOVED, FIRSTBORN BEFORE THE SON OF THE HATED, WHICH IS INDEED THE FIRSTBORN: Have you heard it? Which is indeed his first son.
17BUT HE SHALL ACKNOWLEDGE THE SON OF THE HATED FOR THE FIRSTBORN,... Put your hands together Brethren BUT HE SHALL ACKNOWLEDGE THE SON OF THE HATED FOR THE FIRSTBORN, BY GIVING HIM A DOUBLE PORTION OF ALL THAT HE HATH:....
By giving Him what? ....A DOUBLE PORTION OF ALL THAT HE HATH:... By giving Him what? A DOUBLE PORTION OF ALL THAT HE HATH:... Do you think I am crazy? Am I crazy?
YOU MUST KNOW THE TRUTH. THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE. MY PEOPLE ARE YET TO GET THEIR HOME LAND. ISHMAEL HAS NOT REACHED THE BOUNDARY.
BUT HE SHALL ACKNOWLEDGE THE SON OF THE HATED FOR THE FIRSTBORN, BY GIVING HIM A DOUBLE PORTION OF ALL THAT HE HATH:...
DOUBLE PORTIONS OF ALL THAT HE HAS INCLUDING LAND, CATTLE, SHEEP, OXEN, MOTOR, BICYCLE. DOUBLE PORTION. AFTER THE SHARING HE WILL TAKE TWO PORTIONS. THEN THE REST WILL SHARE WHAT IS LEFT AND GO HOME WITH WHATEVER THEY GET.
WHETHER HE (THE FATHER) LIKES IT OR NOT, HE (THE FATHER) MUST ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AS THE FIRST SON. WHETHER YOU HATE THE MOTHER OR NOT, IT DOES NOT MAKE ANY MEANING. WHO IS THE FIRST SON? HE IS THE ONE.
THIS IS THUS SAITH THE GOD OF ISRAEL. THE LORD OF HOST, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISHMAEL, ISAAC AND JACOB. CAN A MAN ANNUL IT? THIS TRUTH MUST BE TOLD.
BUT HE SHALL ACKNOWLEDGE THE SON OF THE HATED FOR THE FIRSTBORN, BY GIVING HIM A DOUBLE PORTION OF ALL THAT HE HATH: FOR HE IS THE BEGINNING OF HIS STRENGTH;....For he is what? FOR HE IS THE BEGINNING OF HIS STRENGTH; He is what? FOR HE IS THE BEGINNING OF HIS STRENGTH;
WHETHER THE MOTHER IS HATED OR NOT, THE BEGINNING OF THE STRENGTH OF ABRAHAM WAS ISHMAEL AND HE IS ENTITLED TO DOUBLE PORTIONS OF ABRAHAM’S INHERITNACE WHETHER THE WORLD LIKES IT OR NOT, INCLUDING LAND MASS.
BUT HE SHALL ACKNOWLEDGE THE SON OF THE HATED FOR THE FIRSTBORN, BY GIVING HIM A DOUBLE PORTION OF ALL THAT HE HATH: FOR HE IS THE BEGINNING OF HIS STRENGTH; THE RIGHT OF THE FIRSTBORN IS HIS.KJV
15 “IF A MAN HAS TWO WIVES BUT LOVES ONE AND NOT THE OTHER, AND BOTH HAVE BORNE HIM CHILDREN, AND THE MOTHER OF HIS OLDEST SON IS THE WIFE HE DOESN’T LOVE, 16 HE MAY NOT GIVE A LARGER INHERITANCE TO HIS YOUNGER SON, THE SON OF THE WIFE HE LOVES.
The larger portion will not go to the younger one. Never never! How can Islam be in Nigeria 80 years before Christianity and you want Me to join hands with you to talk rubbish as a result of European religion that came due to colonialism because they are looking for our oil wealth. Do you have wisdom at all? I am not talking about Nigeria, but let us face the whole world. We are talking of the stars of heaven
HE MAY NOT GIVE A LARGER INHERITANCE TO HIS YOUNGER SON, THE SON OF THE WIFE HE LOVES.17 HE MUST GIVE THE CUSTOMARY DOUBLE PORTION TO HIS OLDEST SON,...
HE MUST GIVE THE CUSTOMARY DOUBLE PORTION TO THE FIRST SON....WHO IS THE BEGINNING OF HIS STRENGTH AND WHO OWNS THE RIGHTS OF A FIRSTBORN SON,... WHO OWNS WHAT?AND WHO OWNS THE RIGHTS OF A FIRSTBORN SON,... Brethren put your hands together. ...EVEN THOUGH HE IS THE SON OF THE WIFE HIS FATHER DOESN’T LOVE. LB
IF YOU LIKE, JOIN SARAH, PERSECUTE HAGAR, PUT HER IN THE FOREST BECAUSE YOU HATE HER, THE RIGHT OF THE FIRST SON CUSTOMARILY BELONGS TO ISHMAEL. THE FIRST STRENGTH OF ABRAHAM IS ISHMAEL.
FOR THAT RIGHT, DOUBLE PORTIONS OF ABRAHAM’S HERITAGE MUST GO TO ISHMAEL INCLUDING LAND MASS. IF YOU BELIEVE IT SAY AMEN. WHY THE FEUD? WHY THE FEUD? WHY THE BLOODBATH? WHY THE DISCRIMINATION? THIS IS THE TRUTH. SOMEBODY HAS TO SAY IT.
MY TOPIC IS: ISHMAEL, THE FIRST SON OF ABRAHAM, HAS THE CUSTOMARY RIGHT OVER DOUBLE PORTIONS OF ABRAHAM’S INHERITANCE, INCLUDING LAND MASS.
That is the matter that brought Me to the pulpit. Hear Me now. I AM NOT RELIGIOUS AND I WILL NEVER BE RELIGIOUS. BUT THE FAITH I KNOW THE ALMIGHTY GOD HAS IDENTIFIED WITH IS ISLAM. SEEING THAT THE JEWS REJECTED PAUL’S MESSAGE, ISGOD THERE? IS CHRIST THERE? IS CHRIST IN JUDAISM? NO! IS CHRIST IN CHRISTIANITY WHICH IS MANMADE? NO! WHERE IS CHRIST?
Deuteronomy 21:15 – 21. Good news Bible. 15 “SUPPOSE A MAN HAS TWO WIVES AND THEY BOTH BEAR HIM SONS, BUT THE FIRST SON IS NOT THE CHILD OF HIS FAVORITE WIFE. 16 WHEN THE MAN DECIDES HOW HE IS GOING TO DIVIDE HIS PROPERTY AMONG HIS CHILDREN, HE IS NOT TO SHOW PARTIALITY TO THE SON OF HIS FAVORITE WIFE BY GIVING HIM THE SHARE THAT BELONGS TO THE FIRST-BORN SON.
17 HE IS TO GIVE A DOUBLE SHARE OF HIS POSSESSIONS TO HIS FIRST SON, EVEN THOUGH HE IS NOT THE SON OF HIS FAVORITE WIFE. A MAN MUST ACKNOWLEDGE HIS FIRST SON AND GIVE HIM THE SHARE HE IS LEGALLY ENTITLED TO. GNB
Anything clearer than this? Is there any other thing causing confusion more than this? Is there any other controversy? Is it not this matter?
Deuteronomy 21:15 – 21. [In other translations of the Bible]15 IF A MAN HAS TWO WIVES, ONE LOVED AND THE OTHER DISLIKED, AND THEY BOTH HAVE BORNE HIM CHILDREN, AND IF THE FIRSTBORN SON IS THE SON OF THE ONE WHO IS DISLIKED,
16 THEN ON THE DAY WHEN HE WILLS HIS POSSESSIONS TO HIS SONS, HE SHALL NOT PUT THE FIRSTBORN OF HIS LOVED WIFE IN PLACE OF THE (ACTUAL) FIRSTBORN OF THE DISLIKED WIFE—HER FIRSTBORN BEING OLDER.
17 BUT HE SHALL ACKNOWLEDGE THE SON OF THE DISLIKED AS THE FIRSTBORN BY GIVING HIM A DOUBLE PORTION OF ALL THAT HE HAS, FOR HE WAS THE FIRST ISSUE OF HIS STRENGTH; THE RIGHT OF THE FIRSTBORN IS HIS. AMP.
15 IF A MAN HAS TWO WIVES, AND HE LOVES ONE BUT NOT THE OTHER, AND BOTH BEAR HIM SONS BUT THE FIRSTBORN IS THE SON OF THE WIFE HE DOES NOT LOVE,
16 WHEN HE WILLS HIS PROPERTY TO HIS SONS, HE MUST NOT GIVE THE RIGHTS OF THE FIRSTBORN TO THE SON OF THE WIFE HE LOVES IN PREFERENCE TO HIS ACTUAL FIRSTBORN, THE SON OF THE WIFE HE DOES NOT LOVE.
17 HE MUST ACKNOWLEDGE THE SON OF HIS UNLOVED WIFE AS THE FIRSTBORN BY GIVING HIM A DOUBLE SHARE OF ALL HE HAS. THAT SON IS THE FIRST SIGN OF HIS FATHER’S STRENGTH. THE RIGHT OF THE FIRSTBORN BELONGS TO HIM. NIV.
I HAVE COME WITH THE TRUTH. AND I HAVE DELIVERED THE TRUTH TO PUT TO AN END TO THIS FEUD. IF YOU SAY YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN, I MORE. YOU SAY YOU ARE A MUSLIM, I MORE. YOU SAY YOU ARE A HINDU, I MORE. YOU ARE JUDAISM, I MORE.
THIS IS THE WHOLESOME TRUTH. AND YOU CAN DO NOTHING AGAINST THE TRUTH THAN TO SUPPORT THE TRUTH. THE FEUD HAS BEEN THERE BECAUSE NO ONE HAD EVER APPEARED COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO DECLARE THIS TRUTH USING THE SCRIPTURES AS A LEGAL BACKING.
IF YOU WANT TO ANNUL IT, YOU WILL COME UP WITH WHAT WE CALL CONTEMPORARY LAWS THAT HAVE NO BASIS. BUT THIS IS THE ORIGINAL LAW OF JEHOVAH GOVERNING HIS PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR GIVING ME AUDIENCE TO HANDLE PART 1.
PART 2 WILL COME UP WHENEVER I WANT IT TO COME UP. LET ME MONITOR DEVELOPMENTS AROUND YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I WILL COME YOUR WAY AGAIN. ON THIS NOTE, I INVITE APOSTLE OJIAKOR TO THE PULPIT.
