SUNDAY COMBINED WORSHIP SERVICE 13/03/2022
TOPIC: BEHOLD, THE BRIDEGROOM COMETH
TEXT: Matthew 25: 1-13; 2 Thessalonians 2: 1-4; Matthew 24: 30,31& 40-44.
I want us to pay attention. While we wait for the sound of the trumpet any moment from now, we all should understand that the prophecies of the Lord’s coming is overfulfilled.
Further to the 2020 lockdown, the Church suffered and many persons were backslidden to confirm the prophecy of “the falling away”.
2 Thessalonians 2: 1-4
Inferring from the above scriptures, that day shall not come except their be a falling away. I want you to know that the falling away took place in the time of the pandemic.
In addition the prophesies of pestilences and famine have also taken place.
Matthew 24: 7-10
There is serious famine in the land and economic recession all over the world. Every Nation is going through this Many Nations are borrowing.
The pestilences include all the HIV, Ebola virus, corona virus, and all the variants. The Bible says all these things are the beginning of sorrows. Yes! Sorrows for as many that do not believe.
If you therefore are not saved now that the grace is free, is it when the grace is unavailable that you will be saved? Take advantage of now and make preparation on every side.
2 Timothy 3: 1-4
The point is that the perilous times prophecy has been fulfilled.
A lot of evil is going on every where. Selfishness, haters of God, persecutions, etc.
All these abound and we therefore cannot delay any longer to bring this good news to the church which goes thus: “BEHOLD THE BRIDEGROOM COMETH”
I want the Church to know that He that will come shall come and it might happen at any moment.
I pray that none of us shall miss the rapture in Jesus name. We should examine ourselves and be prepared.
In this message, we shall consider the following sub-headings.
- THE REASONS, BRIDE AND BRIDEGROOM EXPLAINED.
Many whom are not aware of these unfortunate events that are about to unfold, may not see the need of the preparation required. They may not see the need to give attention to their souls or the souls of people around them.
In this Church the Lord has given us visions and mandate to fulfil as a matter of preparation.
If you are Born again and saved, if you be a Chosen, you have a mandate to fulfil.
We must preach the gospel and ensure that other people are converted and saved.
You need to understand this information and remain focused.
Hosea 4: 6
If you be ignorant of this knowledge, you shall be a careless soul.
Proverbs 29: 18
Where you do not have vision of what we are set to do, you will perish.
John 8: 32; Daniel 11: 32
Information matters a lot.
It is very clear that the bridegroom cometh.
When you look around you, it is obvious that the people of the world are tired and there is nothing more to enjoy in the world.
Matthew 25: 6
I want to let you know, Jesus Christ is coming and all the evidences are here with us.
Pestilences, wars and rumours of wars, earthquakes in diverse places etc.
So many have fallen away in the night. They come to church and serve God anyhow in unrighteousness.
This message is therefore a final call to the Body of Christ (the Sleeping Bride) to prepare for the Bridegroom cometh. We must give ourselves completely to Soul wining.
The coming of the Lord Jesus is at hand and will take place any moment now.
Revelations 19 : 5-8
It is very clear that we are the Bride and Jesus our Saviour is the Bridegroom. We must prepare for that day is at hand.
Many people are sleeping and not conscious of whom they are. If you are like that, then you must wake up.
2: OUR READINESS AND THE DANGER OF NEGLECT
In view of all the prophecies being fulfilled in the present day, all Believers must wake up as the virgins of old and eschew righteousness on every side.
We must cut-off anything that does not make for readiness of the rapture.
Amos 4: 12
Meeting God requires preparation on every side.When we wnat to meet human beings in this world, we do prepare. However there is no human being that is mightier than God Almighty.

The glory of this world will pass away. We must be wise to take the things of this world with “light hand”. This world is not an eternal abiding place.
Mark 9: 43-48
Listen to me. If you enter hell-fire, you will never cross over into eternity.
There will no more peace, no water from eternity to eternity.
I pray it will never be your portion. Let nothing on earth make you loose eternity in heaven.

If you want to make rapture, follow peace with all men and keep away from all entanglements. Make the preaching of the gospel your focus.

1 Peter 1: 15 & 16
If you refuse to be holy, you have no business with God.
We must not be like the follish virgins nor allow anyone around us in the Church or home to be like them.
If you say you are Born-again and saved, let us go and preach the gospel that others may be saved.
As i am talking with you now, many mortuaries are filled up.
If we do not reach them, if nobody reaches them, many people are trooping to hell-fire on a daily.
Call all your neighbours and friends let them know that Jesus Christ is coming very soon. Take advantage of what you are hearing here today and escape the danger of hell-fire.
Genesis 19: 17
The nessage now is “escape”.
Escape for your life. There is no more time.

We must not allow the mistake of Lot’s wife and the foolish virgins.
Genesis 19: 26
Lot’s wife looked back. She did not care about the instructions and she perished. That is the danger of neglect.
Matthew 25: 1-10
The foolish virgins also suffered for reason of negligence. The Bible records, “and the door was shut”. There shall be no other opportunity like this after the rapture.
The day that the trumpet will sound, there will be no room for preparation.
Repent now so that we all can make the rapture of the Saints in Jesus name.
Brethren, the only reason why i am here and preaching this gospel, is so that I will see all of you in heaven. There is no other reason.
I pray that none of you; that nobody here will miss the rapture in Jesus name. Amen.
As we conclude this message today, make sure you do not give place to the Devil. You must therefore amend your ways and do not return to sin. Sin will hinder you and deny you of your blessings and joy.
For the sinners and Backsliders, they should repent and surrender all to Jesus Christ.
Confess your sins and accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and personal Saviour.
A Sinner is not a Christian and a Christian is not a Sinner.
1 John 3: 8 & 9;
Are you asking, “what is sin?”
1 John 5: 17a;
All unrighteousness is sin.
Unbelief is sin. Unforgiveness is sin; Selfishness is sin; Covetousness is sin
Lusting after evil things is sin. Insincerity is sin; backbiting, murmuring, speaking evil of others, these are terrible sin. You need to search your life. Confess them. Repent and promise God, no more.
Are you patronising the native doctors or you are one of them? Are you going for divination and palm reading, all that is terrible wickedness. No child of God does that. If you are into stealing, any form of stealing; stealing from Government, stealing from companies and individuals, that is sin. Amend your ways. Behold, the Bridegroom cometh. Prepare to meet the Lord.
If you are there and you are involved into armed robbery, duping people, do not bring such money to this Church.
If you are among those people that are involved in fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, abortion, that is terrible wickedness.
Fighting and quarreling, smoking and drunkenness all these are evil. Ask for the mercy of God.
Are you into fighting and quarreling? Are you disobedient to your husband or you are beating your wife, that is sin.
Are you into any kind of killing, poisoning people, hired assassin, ritual killings?
Confess that sin and amend your ways. Promise God you will not return to that wickedness.
Are you into extortion? Taking bribe or giving bribe? That is sin. Amend your ways.
Are you into divorce? That is sin.
Matthew 19: 4-6.
Are you into polygamous marriage or you have sent away your wife or you moved away from your husband, that is sin. Marriage is between a man and a woman until death separates you.
Are you a woman dressing like a man or a man dressing like a woman, all that is sin. It is an abomination. Deuteronomy 22: 5. Abominable people can never enter Heaven. Revelations 21: 8.
Are you among those that take snuff, take cigarette and banned substances, that is sin. That is wickedness against your soul and against humanity.
All these people that bleach their body and turn yellow over night, that is sin.
I have not spoken this word to condemn you but to point out what is evil thereby enabling you to amend your ways.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
