Leader Olumba Olumba Obu of the Brotherhood of Cross and Star, has declared that the Comforter is here with mankind.
“It is written in the prophets, and they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.”
Second Bible Lesson: John 14:26
“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
Golden Text: Revelation 7:17
“For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”
Brethren, this is the revelation of our lesson. This will help you to understand the events of things on earth today. What is happening today on earth is a fulfillment of Bible Prophecy.
It is so stated, even in the Prophets, that you would all be taught by Jehovah God (Isaiah 2:3/Hebrews 8:10-11). If God does not teach you about Himself, or reveal Himself to you, you would not know Him nor understand Him. Your problems emanate from rejecting the teachings of God, and relying on the quest for material things. Because of your interest in money and material wealth, many people refuse to come to this Institute of Higher Learning to know about God, and to be taught by God.
Fulfillment of bible prophecy:
Today, in this generation, what was written a long time ago has come to be fulfilled. God has come to teach you ALL things (John 14:26). God has not come to pray for you, nor give you money, nor material things, no, rather He has come to teach you and to lead you to the accurate knowledge of ALL Truth and to lead you to spiritual maturity.
Human training compared with god’s teaching program:
You are witnesses that teaching is a basic requirement. This at all times starts from infancy. When a child is born, the child will be taught how to sit, crawl and how to stand, and then, how to walk. Many families do provide a rolling wheel to help their children move. The child then is taught how to utter sounds. Thereafter, other teachings will follow as months and years pass by. This child will be taught good manners and proper behavior; how he must conduct himself or herself in and out of the family. You can see that these methods of teaching and training take effort and time. Now the child progressed. He may now be sent to Nursery School, to Primary School, to Post-Secondary School, then to the University. Some of the teachings that this child will receive in this School may be exactly what he was taught while he was very young in the family. For him to graduate and qualify, he must undergo a study of them once more. This is why it is said, “as to learning, there shall be no end.” Take for example in a field of learning like medicine, where Specialists are required. You may obtain your doctorate degree but you must undergo another Study in order to be a Specialist in a certain aspect of medicine. In the Universities, we have many faculties of learning and many departments of Studies – but the same teaching program. We have lecturers on special subjects, professions and trades. You, as a Student, must be taught in order to qualify. At last, where do these teachings lead you? The Scriptures did not say that man will teach his fellow man rather, that Jehovah God will teach you all things. Apart from this, you may be so educated and still you want to be initiated into any of these so-called secret societies: if you are not taught the preliminaries of that Society and you appear to have some understanding, you will not be initiated. So, also, in any cult in this world, you must be taught by a fellow man before you are initiated in it, irrespective of your status in life, and academic qualification and experience in life.
You must understand that all that you have learned and have been taught are all about the Prince of this world. It is demonic, earthly and death-dealing. It is contrary to God’s teaching program and His purpose. To this effect, I have every right to denounce any standard of academic qualification that one may have obtained in this world, because it is not from God (the only authorized Tutor).
Take a look at the Book of Isaiah, Chapter two, reading from verse two: “And it must occur in the final part of the days that the mountain of the Lord’s house will become firmly established above the top of the mountains, and it will certainly be lifted up above the hills, and to it all nations must stream. And many people will certainly go and say: Come you people, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us about His ways, and we will walk in His paths.” This is the house of the God of Jacob in which you have been called to be taught by God Himself.
