KACOU 15 : WHAT GOD EXPECTS FROM US

(Preached on Sunday morning, June 1st, 2003 in Locodjro, Abidjan - Ivory Coast)

1 … When we have discovered the indisputable truth promised for our time, what remains to us is to carry this truth everywhere a child of God can be, whether he is rich or poor, far or near. God who is just will not allow that we enter into the Paradise without asking us for their blood. If the human is sacred as men’s law says, the soul is even more sacred. A great obligation is imposed on us. The order of Matthew 28:19 is not to treaties or books but to some people, us. A book cannot answer a question. You see?  

2   When God saw that the human race was heading right to perdition, He gave away his divine majesty and all his glory to offer Himself in sacrifice for us so that we may have eternal Life like Him. The greatest thing that God gave to man, it is his own Life. And yet, sitting in the middle of the Angels, if He did not come down, He would always remain God but He did it so that we may also have eternal Life. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].

3 And yet, what does man call glory and which prevents him from putting himself at the service of God? I do not know! In Matthew 4:8-9, Satan had proposed the totality to Jesus but He refused it. That is why we do not meddle in politics […]

4 When a man claims to serve God, seek to know the authenticity of his call, his commission and his mandate before seeking to know if what he says or what he does is exact. When God has not sent a man on earth, he cannot recognize the efforts and even the good things of that man. The fact of preaching true does not mean anything because the devil himself knows the Word. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].

5 God's perfect will was that a prophet leads Israel instead of a king. But Israel demanded a king, 1 Samuel 8:4-7. God does not speak by a king but by a prophet. Before the death of Samuel, he had to anoint a prophet in his place. And if the advent of a king designated by a prophet messenger is not God's perfect will, it is not a president elected by men who will be so. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. In 2 Kings 22:11-14, king Josiah sends the priest Hilkijah and the scribe Ahikam to the prophet to inquire about God's Word. In 2 Chronicles 20:20, king Jehoshaphat says to Israel: "Believe in Jehovah your God, and ye shall be established; believe his prophets, and ye shall prosper!".

6 A Christian is like a soldier who is called to die for his homeland one day, if necessary. The day when the call sounds to attack, everything on earth is meaningless, it is not only his money or his home which is at stake but the most precious thing he has, his life. That is why you need to be ready when the General calls. And it is neither within a month, nor within a year but today. The Bible and the vision confirm that that is why in the vision of 1993, you see the Lamb which is the symbol of the sacrifice.

7 This vision has now been interpreted except for the two doves which are two persons upon whom the true Spirit of God rests and who could come only to say something to me. I do not know at which moment but I will know that it is on behalf of God that they have come as I saw it in the vision. You see? …

8 And in accordance with Acts 16:6-10, the Holy Spirit will coordinate this awakening on the field of mission. Everything must fall in line with the plan of the perfect will of God, if not it is even a sin and I reckon that if He called me then He knew me before the foundation of the world and He knew my capacities. When He gave the keys of the Kingdom to Peter, He knew who Peter was! How this Message will reach the ends of the earth, He knows it and they are those who have this faith of Joshua and Caleb who will enter. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].

9 What can the book of a Baptist pastor bring me if it is not to be a good Baptist! When the reading of the Bible was forbidden by Pope Innocent III, which purpose did Satan want to reach? It is the same purpose he has reached today by another means, in order to subject people to his will. While leaving the Bible in their hands, he has given them an infinite number of interpretations. A Baptist way, a Pentecostal way, a Jehovah’s Witness, Adventist, Nazarene, Anabaptist way, … reaching exactly and completely the same purpose.

10 A child of God concerned about Salvation and about eternal Life, will seek, even in the slightest details, to know what Christianity is. A rat cannot be domesticated, a son of the devil, even in contact with the truth, will remain what he is. A son of God in contact with falsehood will ask himself questions until he is enlightened! Amen! You see? The deep calleth the deep. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].

11 Between 1540 and 1770, nine million of Christians were burnt alive, buried alive, beheaded, not by the pagan Rome but by the Roman Catholic church. Why? … In 1415, John Huss, rector of the University of Prague, was burned alive at the stake. Why? … In 1384, John Wyclif, a professor at Oxford was burned alive at the stake! Why? … The inquisition established in 1229 by the Roman Catholic church completely exterminated the Albigensians. Why? … In August 1572, in a single night, 70000 Christians were massacred in Paris and province. Why? … BECAUSE ALL THESE ONES OPPOSED WHAT YOU CALL CHURCHES TODAY! [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. They opposed the ancestors of your Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist leaders. These monsters stinking sins and guilt, fallen angels, precipitated from Heaven and against whom the condemnation does not stop shouting, those Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist leaders who were seducing those whose names were not written in the book of Life of the Lamb before the foundation of the world. Those who do not know that the work of God, it is to recognize and to listen to the one that He has sent according to John 6:28-29. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].

12 I did some research on every apostle, point by point and although they were scattered, they defended the same doctrine. After them, their disciples defended the same doctrine until persecution took them away... You cannot seduce a child of God!

13 And people go up to saying that the spirit that acts in these Baptist, Assemblies of gods, Pentecostal churches, and others is the Holy Spirit. It is a blasphemy! If you claim that the spirit that acts upon Cain, Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Doug Batchelor, Billy Graham, Edir Macedo, Valdemiro Santiago, Silas Malafaia, Paula White, Joyce Meyer and Chris Oyakhilome is the Holy Spirit, what about the spirit that is acting upon the traditional fetish priest of Africa? If you claim that the spirit that acts upon David Owuor, Emmanuel Makandiwa, Uebert Angel, T. B. Joshua, David Oyedepo, Alberto Mottesi, Claudio Freidzon and Dante Gebel is the Holy Spirit, what about the spirit that is acting in mystical orders, the Rosicrucianism, the Freemasonry and others? If you claim that the spirit that acts upon Tommy Osborn, Morris Cerullo, Benny Hinn, Manasseh Jordan, Jesse Jackson, John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Joaquim Gonçalves, Donald Parnell, Alejandro Bullón and Guillermo Maldonado is the Holy Spirit, what about the spirit that shakes the Hindis over there?

14   I do not want the children of God to fall asleep with those who were not born to repent. When you see the Foursquare church, an old church of 1922, which baptizes in a certain way and another church which baptizes in another way and both are found in the same church federation, what will a child of God go to do over there?

15 The Church, given her introduction with John the Baptist and the Apostles and her development through history has nothing in common with what you call "church" today. It would be too easy to stick a Baptist body to this head and seduce a child of God with it. You cannot stick the head of a woman on a body which is not hers and persuade her child that this is his mother. He will check the names, the height, the complexion, the age and all the rest. That is what the children of God will always do. Thousands of churches but the Bible says that the elect will not be seduced! Amen!

16 And it is for all these things that God calls us onto the field of mission. Why? In order to block seduction and unveil the devil and his tricks. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. God's ultimate and supreme call sounds for every Christian man and woman. If you have the Apostles for fathers and if you claim to follow in their footsteps, then receive this call as a resounding voice in your hearts, no matter how hard It is. And if we are rich, it is for the progression of the Word. God no longer calls us to remain between four walls but onto the field of mission. This is the time when the truth must go from town to town, from village to village, from countryside to countryside! The glad tidings of the Kingdom for our time must be preached to the sick, to the poor, to the rich, to the disabled and to all the inhabitants of the earth. With the strength, the means and the capacities that you have, act for the progression of the Word. Do not make any calculation. The God of Elijah who led our fathers the Apostles and the disciples will lead you Himself. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].

17 In 1415, John Huss, a university rector resigns, becomes the disciple of a small preacher whose writings he had received, then being impregnated with the doctrine, he went from place to place, preaching what people called heresy and which was in reality the truth that nobody could contradict until he was burned alive.

18 From the Apostles to John Wesley, I have not seen a man of God limit his ministry between four walls. "Go everywhere". Whether it is a Catholic, Muslim, evangelical, animistic ground, preach everywhere! You have no permission to ask from anyone. This was the case of noble preachers over these 1900 years. You see?

19 People think that they are Christians while they are not. And that is what we are condemned to say to them according to Ezekiel 33:1-9, even if they call that judgment. We are not accountable for their reaction. God warned Cain knowing that he would kill Abel. In the Old Testament, God did it by the prophets at the cost of their blood. In the Church, He did not do it either by an angel or by himself but by the Christians that we are. First, by our fathers the Apostles and the disciples and now by us. That is what God has always done. And this is not a new thing.

20 And that is also why I beg you not to put the carnal before the spiritual. The sons of the devil care about what they are going to become on earth, even about what their corpse will be behind them. Do not imitate them. If you must receive the treatment of a dog and go to Heaven, do not retreat. If you are yearning for the Heaven and that you recognize that it is the Almighty God who spoke to me on April 24, 1993, receive this as a call from the Lord Jesus-Christ Himself. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen”]. God gave Himself for us and it is with a just cause that He asks for our life. Let us die for the earth and let us live for the Heaven! Lending to God what He has given us, must not be regarded as too much of a sacrifice!

21 You see? I do not fail to say that, for a new Message like this one, an assembly, especially in town, cannot spend more than three months without conversion. And if an assembly does not move forward, the person to blame is the head. And if that persists, he must accept to sit down, humbly, by himself. I will come back on that.

22 But, as for you the church members, remember the parable of the talents and do not be sterile fig-trees. Both the brothers and the sisters, like the Samaritan woman, make that everybody hears this Message around you. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].

23 Also, all those who have material or financial means must act in this sense, putting their possessions to the service of God according to Ezra 1:5-6.

24 May God bless you, the meeting is over. In your homes, do not forget to pray for me. And that being separated and apart, may God keep us in the same Spirit until we meet again. Amen!
