TACC International Joint Executive Meeting 11-12 May 2013

Venue: TACC Moth Hall, East London

Summary of the teachings of the TACC President and Chief Apostle

The Chief Apostle opened the Sunday sermon and read from the book of John 17 verse 3 where Jesus prays for his disciples.  "This is eternal life that they should know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent"(KJV).

He continued with His teachings emphasizing that, "Jesus doesn’t say that they know you that you are me (Jesus)."  Or, he doesn’t say "they should know you that you are the true God and Jesus Christ." Or say "they should know that you have sent me."

It is clear that the one who is praying is not the one who speaks here. This is a prayer as Jesus prayed for his disciples. You must know that it is easy to be given the Holy Spirit but it’s difficult to accept what you have been given. Jesus is praying here that people should know God not him. That is the knowledge of God. The knowledge of God knowledge is life. It is to know the only true God. To know gods is not eternal life but to know the only God who is the true God gives life.

That is the main problem that we are facing currently is to know gods but not the only true God. The question is; what is it that is difficult to know God? The Apostles were with Jesus and he was teaching all of them at the same time. But the question he asked was "Who do people say I am?" They all answered, and then when he asked them "Who do you think I am?" They couldn’t answer. Only one man had an answered, Simon. What gave him an answer? It was the knowledge.

The answer could only come from the knowledge not from anything else. Knowledge dwells in the mind, where the church of God is. Peter says in his answer, "You are the Christ, the son of the living God." (NKJV) Jesus responded and said, "flesh and blood has not revealed this  to you, but my Father who is in heaven". (NKJV)

In other words, it was not his knowledge that answered. In other words, He received the knowledge from the only true God. He had the eternal life among all his fellow brothers. In other words, he had life. Your body is built in the knowledge of God Jesus says that His congregation will be built upon this rock. In other words, the rock is the knowledge. That means it is not your body where the church of God is built. It is your knowledge of God that is the true God. You can be a big man and highly educated but that doesn’t mean you have ability to lead the church of God. TACC has lots of people who are in this world. It has very educated people, illiterate, rich, poor etc. When you see this church, you can agree that it cannot be led by a person who is not educated. Let me tell you, the church of God is not led by the educated people or uneducated people. It is led by the knowledge and wisdom of God. Jesus says "Go and make all nations disciples. That is where the knowledge of God is. The face of God is in the new people that you call to God.  To be rich doesn’t make one to qualify to lead people of God You can be rich and have lots tenders with beautiful houses and cars but that cannot make you qualified to lead people of God. Jesus says, "What you are saying is not coming from you but from my Father." The question, is why Jesus was so sure that Peter’s response was not from him but his Father?  It is because the answer was not from him but from the wisdom of God. Unfortunately, only God knew who Christ was. So, it was clear when Peter knew who Christ was, it was obvious that it was not him who answered the question but Christ.Who is Jesus Christ Christ comes from his father. Christ is his father. Jesus Christ is born by Christ hence he was able to talk what Christ was saying being Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is born from Christ. It’s like Nongqunga who gave birth to Caesar. There is Nongqunga and there is Caesar. Caesar is not Nongqunga but born of Nongqunga.Jesus was not Christ but the son of Christ.  Hence he was always referring to the father not him when speaking as Jesus Christ. He always spoke about his Father all the time when referring to Christ.The Father means a provider, the love giver. The Father of Jesus Christ is Christ. When Jesus was born again, his father was Christ the son of God. This Christ came and got a place within Jesus and created a new character who was Jesus Christ. That character is peace that was promised by his father when He once said "I will bless you with peace".Jesus is Peace Jesus is not love, he is love of God.  He is peace which is the love of God. This peace is Love of God. God so loved us that He gave us His own Peace (Jesus). God so loved us by sacrificing His Son so that all those who believe in him should not perish. His love is peace. God is love, but His love is not love, is peace. God is spirit. Which type of Spirit? He is the spirit that is love. He is not the spirit that loves. When you speak of love, you speak of God. When you speak of the love of God, you speak of Peace. God says in Psalms 29 vs. 11 "God will bless His people with Peace."  It doesn’t’ say "God will bless all people." It says "God will bless His people with peace." In other words, you can’t be blessed if you are not a person of God. What makes you to be a person of God is by getting Holy Spirit. God attracts His people through Spirit. Hence you can’t worship God without the Spirit. In spirit there is truth. You can’t have the truth if you don’t have Holy Spirit. The Truth You can’t have truth if you don’t have the Spirit. Let us go to this only truth that Jesus is referring to.  No matter how we can try, if you have not seen God in the form of Spirit, you didn’t see God. God dwells in Christ, Christ dwells in his Spirit. If you can’t see this God, then there is no other God that exists. Those who accept Holy Spirit accepted God. God dwells in the Son and the Son dwells in His Spirit. This spirit comes through the laying of hands of the Apostles. It doesn’t come with Apostles but through Apostles’ hands.Be prepared Spiritually to give Holy Spirit We must look at ourselves and not make us God that we are not.  This Spirit comes with the hands of the Apostles. You can be an Apostle and lay your hands on people and that Spirit won’t descend if you are not in one mind with God. You must first not be in existence before you can give people Holy Spirit. There must be Apostle not you. Hence you are forced to fast first. You switch off your own body so that people can’t see you but God who sent you. You have a duty therefore to give out with you own sins so that God can grant you His peace. The Spirit will tell you when to lay hands on His people. You just lay hands to anyone not checking whether the Spirit descended or not. When I give people Holy Spirit, I lay hands to them not looking or choosing anyone. I don’t care whether that person accepted it or not but I know that I am not the one who will be lying to people but Christ for He sent me. Message to the Apostles There are those who can decide to give Holy Spirit without being authorized to do so. People that are told to take the yoke upon their shoulders, I just give them the Holy Communion but I do that to only those that are not known to me. I can’t worry myself about what they are doing. It’s their own responsibility not mine. What I am doing, I manage the church not you. When you are there doing your own things and segregating Gods’ people or having your own overseers that you love more than others, it’s up to you. It’s not my baby. Eternal life Who is eternal life? Is God Himself. He existed yesterday, today and forever. There is nothing that can be in existence until the end. It’s something that is within God. Trees, dogs, cows etc come from God. When God illustrates this, He asks Noah to take female and male of each animal and put it in the Ark. If he had male and female of a criminal or murderer, they all had their own compartment. This is what we should be like in order for us to be able to have peace. When you have forgiven a person, it doesn’t mean you accepted him but you accepted that what he comes from God. It’s like your brother. You can’t do anything if he is a thief. It’s not your duty but God's. There is no sin worse than to think that you are God. This makes you not to be able to listen to God by doing things that you think, not what God thinks. The Spirit of God makes you God What makes you to be God is because you have a Spirit of God. If you are God, tell me, which sun did you ever create? Don’t misunderstand these things. You are good that you are Gods because you were there when the sun was created being in God. The fact that you don’t remember, it’s not my problem. Everything that you see comes from the idea that is from God. It simply means that we are God, for we are a portion of God. If a person is a portion of God, that doesn’t mean that he created heaven and earth. If we are God, why are we praying?  I am trying to make you to understand who you are. If you can find your child claiming to be you, who is going to fight? Will you not fight as the Father?Understand when you are told that you are from Nongqunga but you can be Nongqunga in his presence. In order for you to be original, you must first be united in the name of Christ. In other words, when you are united, you meet with your fellow brothers and start planning in the name of the reason for meeting. Like as we are here in this meeting, we are not meeting in the name of the Lord Jesus but to plan for Apostle day. Don’t say you are meeting in the name of the Lord even if you are not.  If you meet, you must have a purpose. If you are going to meet in the name of the Lord, you meet with your brother with an idea that you both don’t know and you become surprised when you see God revealing himself to you for his things are known by Him.Acceptance of the Holy Spirit It’s easy to be given the Holy Spirit, but when you are going to accept the Holy Spirit that was given to you, there is something that is needed from you. The knowledge will make you understand the Spirit. If you don’t understand the Spirit, you won’t be able to know the Spirit. You will move up and down seeking for help but you won’t be able to know the cause of the problem for you don’t know the spirit. When I joined this church, I had a problem of dreaming myself dying all the time. It was worse when I would see myself being buried. I would see people burying me while watching my funeral. When I went to church the following day, I found myself in the pulpit prophesying. Then it because a problem I would see myself with stomach pains and tramps. I started praying through the week. Every time I would pray to God asking to God to show me that I’m a prophet and I don’t believe in this that people tell me and things that I did. My DreamI had a dream that there was somebody called Nathanial who participated in the writing of bible. I was shocked to hear that there was a person called Nathanial at all as I was not reading the bible. This took time to understand this dream as I studied Psychology at school. There is a man called Mr. FREUD who would say nothing called dream. He would say dream is something that comes from the conscious mind and be retrieved by you when you are asleep. He would say that when you dream, you dream of something that you thought of. I disagree with this theory as I would dream of everything that I never thought of. Mr. FREUD's research is half way. There is nothing that you can see that is not from conscious mind. Revelation comes from the conscious mind and you can’t see it if it has not been in a conscious mind. This proves that these things that you have seen you saw them before but you can’t remember them. Something that comes from conscious mind is what you saw long time ago but when it is revealed to you now you can’t remember it. What you see now existed before. You were a prophet but that’s what you see now.  To know God The problem that we have is to know God. How will we know the only true God? It is by accepting the Holy Spirit. There is a formula for accepting the Holy Spirit. How do you accept him? God is not a rapist. He can’t take you by force. He says you must agree. You would ask how you are going to accept his calling. This principle is to do the basics of the church. Basics is by accepting a foolish man who is leading you and commanding you to stop the sin that you like which he is still struggling to stop but instructing you to stop it. Instead of stopping the sin, you ask this stupid man debating your case that he wants you to stop this sin while is doing it. God’s word is in this man to correct you. Yours is to do it especially when you know that it is wrong that you are doing. Let the man do his sin but stop what he stops you from doing. God is word. He dwells in this man and speaks through this man.God is in the congregation Jesus speaks to his disciple saying they must go to the houses of his people and preach to them and not speak to anyone. He doesn’t say anything but he will be there ahead of them. If you want to be forgiven, you must go to evangelism and what you will see there is Gods’ face. Hence most people that are peace makers are in the evangelism. If you are leading the congregation you are always preaching to God as he likes to dwells with the congregation as you teach. Then when you come to insult them, you include God. If you are an officer who insults the congregation, you are not doing this to these people but to their God. Let those who in the church crying, come back smiling.  As they smile and feel happy, you must know that God is happy. Jesus says "Petty to those who come with insults and hurts to others."Now, who is the greater amongst us? No one for you must do the word of this officer even if it’s sour to you. He has a duty to bless you. At the end God will bless him in return. In other words, the solution for the officer is to scratch my back I will scretch his.  Duty of the Leader The leader must bless the congregation and the congregation must bless the leader. That is where God is. When you accept the Spirit, you reach a level of understanding that says "I’m nothing without my leader." A leader comes to the level of understanding that says "I’m nothing without this congregation." You will be speaking nicely to it until it becomes what God wants it to be. If you want your congregation to stop what is wrong, don’t shout, and rather stop what you are doing. If you are greedy, you will be worried if your congregation is greedy. The solution is to stop being greedy then automatically they will stop being greedy. Each time you enter in the congregation and fight against the spirit of greediness, they won’t stop. Once you conquer that spirit of being greedy, automatically they will also stop.We must accept the Spirit. The step that we should take is to forgive. When you are about to forgive someone is to pretend first. When you are going to do this pretence of yours every day, you will pass this pretence. Then once you pass it, you will see that the bitterness is gone. Then you will be in peace. Pretence is a practise for you to forgive. Once God see that you are trying, then the Holy Spirit, will chip in. Temptations God gives you temptations so that you can’t undermine other people. If you can be perfect, you will never understand other people’s wrong doings. Hence, when you are doing well, God brings something that will make you embarrassed so that you can be able to humble yourself to people. We are full of pride all of us and is wrong. When one is embarrassed in public, it becomes painful. But when you humble yourself, God lifts you up. There is no need to prove your position to people. Just humble yourself so that God can lift you up. Believe in the gift that God gave you God says to Moses, "Go and talk to Pharaoh." When they ask who are you, you must say, " I am who I am has sent me".  The problem of Moses was that he was not sure that he was what God said he was. But that was the honest truth. God is not invited when He enters you or goes. He comes without being called and leaves without telling you. But when he sits in you, he says "I’m standing knocking, you must open the door". For God to be with you, He comes by Himself and for Him to be with you, you must open. Moses’ problem was to believe that God told him he was God and that was something he couldn’t believe was possible. God made Moses God and went to Aaron to tell him that he made Moses to be God. Moses never knew about that. When Moses asked God what he should do to show His power, He said he must use His rod to guide him. The day we received the Holy Spirit, we were made God by God. But our problem is to believe that we are God for we know that we are people. Now we have to be in one mind with what God has given to us.  Hence Jesus says He is your own knowledge and guider. The problem is my interaction with Spirit. Signs that you accepted Holy Spirit If you didn’t accept the Holy Spirit, we see you easily. You also know yourself that you didn’t accept it. You can’t have anger and ill-plans to kill others or hate people for years. You gossip about your officers all the time. No. You can be here in the church and claim to have been given the Holy Spirit but only to find you don’t have it. Once you become a leader and start a habit of insulting people, you didn’t receive the Holy Spirit. Even if people do wrong to you, don’t waste time by shouting at them.  We were blessed to be hated by the world. The world shall hate you. That is what we are here for, to be hated by the world. But God loves us because of His Spirit that is in us. Would you delay the church because of one thousand people that insult our church on social networks? We will not be able to worship God if we are not in Spirit. We should have peace inside us. It makes you not to care about what people are doing or saying when you accepted the Spirit. We don’t need scriptures in order to know that we accepted God. We don’t even need any person to tell us that we are devil. You know that we are not those things, move on. Don’t perturb yourself. Once you have accepted the Holy Spirit, you will have power. You won’t be responding to everything that people say. Once you have power, you will see that this person is blind. How many times Apostles have they been hatred and insulted upon? Move on!!
