Anonymous: A Question From A Sister

Good morning Pastor. Please if a church is not growing, what does it mean. The prophet spoke about it this morning and I remember you said we are not doing enough to win souls. Please my other question is that do pastors have favorite people in the church? God bless you, sir.

Pastor Idun: A Question From A Sister

A church can be said to grow both spiritually and in numbers.

When a church is growing spiritually, you are able to tell by the attitude of its members and the souls they are able to win. When individuals in the church are filled with the Holy Spirit, they have a strong desire in their hearts to win souls for God and want to be in all services and programmes of the church. They never want to miss any church service. They punctuate every Word of God with an AMEN, just as the prophet said. Such people are Holy-Spirit filled people.

People who are filled with the Holy Spirit again, are so much filled with the love of God in so much so that they want things that are done for the Lord to be done better than anything they can think of. They go all out to do things for God even without being told and don't do it for a show or recognition.

When such people are in a church, they help in the growth of the church by their behaviours and attitudes.

Many church members in Prampram are not able to win souls for the Lord because they are not living the lives of Christ themselves. As the prophet said, our lives will either bring people in or send them out. Some of the people are also shy to testify of the Message they have believed. The Lord said that on that day, He would also be shy of such people.

In the prophet's Message today, he was saying that maybe some of the ministers are not giving their members the right prescription but I thank God I am preaching exactly what the prophet preached and don't add or take away from It and I know the church can testify of that. He again said when a church is not growing, it could be attributed to some church members living in sin. Of course, they will be held responsible at the day of judgement.

Some of the people are just the way they are because the spirit in Prampram is a stubborn spirit. The devil is trying hard to make it difficult for the Message to impact the lives of the people, but we will continue praying for the Lord to have His way in His church.

A brother had a dream that he shared with me, and in the dream, the prophet was being buffeted by demons in Prampram. Prampram is a strong place but not stronger than our Lord. We have already overcome them and have come this far by faith and the help of the Lord. I know people who have tried starting churches in Prampram and ended up leaving, but thank God Mount Sunset Country Church has come to stay. This ministry is being led by the Lord Himself, and every move we make is inspired by the Lord. If a man had been leading this church, we wouldn't have been here today. It has been the leadership of the Holy Spirit.

The prophet said in one of the quotes that, when God sends a man, He equips him for His work.

It's my prayer and desire that every member in Mount Sunset Country Church will be filled with the Holy Spirit. That way, the desire to win souls will be great, and God's work will be done unhindered. You can also help win souls by sharing the Message with your neighbours.

On the response to whether Pastors have favorites. I can't tell for all pastors, but I don't have favourites. I wasn't born like that. I love everyone just the same and treat everyone in the church just the way the Lord would treat them. But I should say that people win my heart when I see that they love the Lord above everything else and they wouldn't exchange this Message for anything. The contrary is true for people who are stubborn and are not concerned about the things of the LORD.

I want the best for everyone and try my best to make that happen. However, there are people who are proud and don't want to take instructions or corrections from the pastor. When I realise someone is like that, I don't worry myself over that person. Remember, the prophet said there are three kinds of believers in every Assembly.

The Lord has made me a father over His flock, and that's what I am doing to the best of my knowledge. I treat everyone in the church the same way I treat my children and nieces because you are all my children. I don't have favourites at all. If you must be commended, I will do that, and if you must be rebuked, I will do that. I know my nieces and some of you brethren will attest to that.

A father who loves his children will rebuke them when they are wrong and commend them when they are right, and that's what I have done to the best of my knowledge.

May God help me to continue staying that way and never discriminate amongst His children.

Anonymous: A Question From A Sister

Good morning, and God bless you, Pastor . Please, a follow-up question.
From the answer given, does it mean that this world will burn, which was started as the war of Armageddon before the general resurrection.

Pastor Idun: A Question From A Sister

Yes, it means exactly that! The world will burn with fervent heat.

Malachi 4:1 says the world will burn as an oven. But before that happens, we have a promise in Malachi 4:5 of a promised Elijah to forerun the second coming of the LORD. That's why it says before the GREAT AND DREADFUL DAY of the LORD (the burning), He will send Elijah. Elijah is now history, so the burning is very close.

Bro. Branham said it's the nuclear bombs that will melt the earth. Man always destroys himself.

The general resurrection is the last of all the events that are yet to happen. At the general resurrection, there's the white throne judgement where people will be condenmed to the lake of fire and others saved to the city of God.

Revisit how I arranged the order of occurrence of the events, and it will be made clearer to you

Pastor, please, are we in the millennium?


Thursday, 18 January 2024
Pastor Idun: A Question From A Sister

No, we are not in the Millennium now. We haven't even gone into the rapture, let alone to be in the Millennium.

After the rapture, there will be the great tribulation, the salvation of 144,000 Jews, and the marriage supper of the Lamb.

After that, there will be the war of Armageddon. The world will burn and be renovated for the millennium.

These are the things we must look for during the Millennium:

(1) There will be no death for a thousand years.

(2) Satan will be bound so there will be no sorrow, no tears, no sicknesses, no accidents, no crime, etc. etc. etc.

(3) The lion will lie down with the lamb, and there will be absolute peace.

(4) Our Lord Jesus Christ will be seen physically among the Bride in the millennium

Anonymous: A Question From A Brother

1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
John 14:1

2 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.
John 14:2

3 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 14:3

4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
John 14:4

My questions pastor.
1. A mansion is bigger than a house, which house our Lord going to prepare.
2.where is our Lord now? He said where He is there we may be also.

God bless you pastor.

Pastor Idun: A Question From A Brother

For question one, the house as spoken of in John 14:1-3 is not the house as we have in Ghana.

In the Jewish tradition and in some African tradition, a father's household (or house) depicts his domain. It depicts everything he has control over. So it is more like a kingdom and not a physical house.

Brother Branham addresses this in the following quote:

57-0105 HEAR YE HIM _ CLEVELAND. TN SATURDAY

E-37 And when a--a child was born into a family...If you'll notice in the Bible, back in the early translators in King James time, King James version, John 14 sounds very strange, doesn't it? "In My Father's house is many mansions."

Mansions in a house? How much bigger is the mansion than a house? Sounds strange. I believe it was Moffatt or one of the other modern translators, who made it more ridiculous than ever, said, "In my father's apartment house is many apartments." Now that doesn't sound like God, you're going up there to rent an apartment from Him.

Now, that's wrong. But if you'll go back to the original, it says, "In My Father's Kingdom is many places." Now, the reason King James put it like that, the translators, in the Old Testament and also in the early ages, a man who owned a great portion of a country, it was called his house, his household. He had servants over here, and servants over there, and servants down there.

In Africa and many parts of the country, you still find this law. And He was called the Father of over all of this group of servants and grounds, and like Abraham.
(END OF QUOTE)

To the second question, our LORD is still preparing a place for us. Verse 3 of John 14 says that when He's done preparing a place for us, He will come and take us to Himself so that where He is, we must be also. So, as long as we haven't gone into the rapture yet, He's still preparing a place for us.

There are many events that will follow the rapture of the Bride:

* After the rapture, there will be the marriage supper of the Lamb between the Bride and her LORD. It's the same period that will witness the great tribulation for those who will miss the rapture. That same period will witness the ministries of Elijah and Moses, opening the understanding of 144,000 Jews. This period will last for three and half years.

* After that, there will be the war of Armageddon. The world will burn and be renovated for a thousand years of millennial reign. This is when Satan will be bound by a chain of circumstance.

* After the Millennium, Satan will be released, and there will be the war of Gog and Magog.

* After the war of Gog and Magog, there will be a general resurrection (the second resurrection) for the White Throne Judgement.

* At the White Throne Judgement, where the Bride and her Bridegroom will sit in judgement, the foolish virgins and others will be pronounced righteous because they stood for the Lord during the great tribulation and will enter the city (heaven) that has been prepared for the Bride. At this White Throne Judgement, sinners and the ungodly will be sent to the lake of fire that has been prepared for the Devil and his angels.

Please a follow-up question. I want to know the difference between a minister and pastor. Please, are they the same?


Tuesday, 16 January 2024
Pastor Idun: A Question From A Brother

A pastor is a minister because he ministers, but a minister is not necessarily a pastor.

A pastor is a shepherd of God's flock. He is the overseer of a local church. He is the final authority, humanly speaking, in a local assembly.

Apart from the pastor of a church, there are others whose duty is to preach, though they are not overseers of a church. They are ordained as ministers. Since the pastor also preaches, he is also called a minister. In effect, every pastor is a minister, but not every minister is a pastor.
