The nine fruits of the Holy Spirit (love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance) prove that the Holy Spirit has character. To exhibit character is an indication of a living entity. So, the Holy Spirit is, after all, God Almighty, in an evident contradiction to Jehovah’s Witnesses erroneous belief (especially in the scriptural light of being grieved – Isaiah 63:10 & Ephesians 4:30) that HE is just an inanimate neuter thing – lifeless! They are nine, to protect His people from number 10!
Ten is the number of trials that journeys a man through the vicissitudes of the toughness of life. Ten times, God spoke to test the veracity of His creative potency in Genesis chapter one. Ten plagues He used to judge unbelieving Pharaoh. Ten are the commandments He gave to Israel; and when the twelve tribes of Israel would pollute the holy passage of the Messiah, God divide her into two. Two tribes of Judah and Benjamin. Two is of testimony and of witness – of the eventual advent of Christ. Judah means praise – of Jehovah; and Benjamin is: ‘son of my right hand’ – where Jesus is seated in heaven. Ten other tribes, overwhelmed by the spirit of ten, messed up spiritually.
Nine, therefore, is pretrial. It speaks of a purposeful readiness for an eventual harrowing experience. It is a period when the Holy Spirit takes us through an intensive induction course of preparedness. “The simplest definition of God,” ‘if you ask me,’ said Rev. Chris Okotie, “is love.” The (Galatians 5:22) tutorial commences with love, called in the Greek, agapē (ag-ah’-pay): ‘love, that is, affection or benevolence; specifically (plural) a love feast.’ Love, they say, conquers all; and with this God’s kind of love occupying your heart no trial overcometh thee, you can be sure of that. Joy is: chara (khar-ah) ‘cheerfulness, that is, calm delight.’ Joy should naturally succeed love: for in the presence God, there is fullness of joy, which constantly reminds you of His banner (i.e. love) over you! Eirēnē (i-ray’-nay) is the Greek interpretation of peace; Strong’s Definition: Probably from a primary verb eirō ‘(to join); peace (literally or figuratively); by implication prosperity.’ This kind of peace passes understanding, which settles your spiritual life for good. The gradual ascent moves you to longsuffering: makrothumia (mak-roth-oo-mee’-ah) ‘longanimity, (objectively) forbearance or (subjectively) fortitude.’ With the character of longsuffering maturity has set itself into your spiritual system. Then we have gentleness: chrēstotēs (khray-stot’-ace) ‘usefulness, that is, moral excellence (in character or demeanor).’ No wonder Jesus teaches us to acquire the gentleness of a dove: it is useful as chrestotes points out. Goodness is: agathōsunē (ag-ath-o-soo’-nay): ‘uprightness of heart and life, goodness, kindness.’
It is a long process, it seems, coming to terms with faith: pistis (pis’-tis): ‘persuasion, that is, credence; moral conviction (of religious truth, or the truthfulness of God or a religious teacher), especially reliance upon Christ for salvation; abstractly constancy in such profession; by extension the system of religious (Gospel) truth itself.’ Faith is pivotal to walking with God: the only currency you need to do spiritual business with the Almighty! It is by faith we witness the occurrence of miracles. Meekness is praotēs (prah-ot’-ace): ‘gentleness, mildness, meekness by implication humility.’ The virtue of meekness was what qualified Moses to be God’s minister. Meekness makes you a teachable person! The last but not the least is temperance egkrateia (eng-krat’-i-ah): ‘self-control (the virtue of one who masters his desires and passions, especially his sensual appetites).’ Moses was teachable but he could not control his temperament, and unfortunately, he did not ask God, as close as he was to HIM, to help him to control what became his albatross. Somebody, I hope, is learning from Moses’ mistake!
Why the nine fruits {fruit in the Greek is: karpos (kar-pos’): ‘fruit (as plucked), literally or figuratively’} of the Holy Spirit allows ‘love’ to be the first to be plucked is because Jesus, in conferment with Deuteronomy 6:4 taught in Mark 11:29-31 that, (v. 29) “…The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: (30) And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. (31) And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.” I have always asked people that if one has to love the Lord with all of the heart, soul strength and thought; is there any other thing left for one to do any other thing? Love moved Jesus to die even while we were yet sinners! Does the Bible not teach that as good as faith and hope are in our business with God they will be rendered obsolete but love will continue for eternity (1Corinthians 13:13)? Do you see the scriptural truthfulness in Rev. Chris Okotie’s definition of love?
With love as your security, you enter into a new beginning because there remaineth 8 more fruits. Step into joy, flowing like a river in your heart, and you have received perfection (as 7 is left) to perform credibly in your walk. Peace of the Holy Spirit in your firm grip endows your ownership of 3 (perfect manifestation of Trinity) fruits, resulting in serenity known only of God. It is most assuring. Peace hopes for 6 (number of man) which transports you to Eden: the paradise the man of God returns to. Four is the number of creation and does it not take a one with strong character of fortitude to create?

I KNOW WHY THE CHURCH IS IN DISARRAY (3rd and concluding part)


Ifa Priests

                             Ifa Priests


In the Western Nigeria of Yoruba land where white garment churches sprang from, the worshippers of the chief deity, ‘Ifa’ (white garment wearing secret cult), a fetish heathenism, from which, traditionally, they grew up, do forbid wearing of footwear into their covens and shrines. Extensions of the various covens these so-called churches are, of truth! There is a man called Olutanmole, who owns an Aladura Church. Aladura means ‘a prayerful person’; and these are the white garmented ones. They are garbed in white because, as they maintain, angels and the redeemed wear white in heaven; or is it really because they must, like the hypocritical outwardness of Pharisees, show purity of righteousness (2Corinthians 11:14)? The name Olutanmole literally means ‘a one who sheds light’. ‘A shedder of light’ or appropriately a bringer of light i.e. light bearer which is the true meaning of Lucifer! Olutanmole, sometime in the ’90’s, I think, was interviewed on television where he said, without mincing words that he was the one Jesus referred to in John 16:7. Olutanmole, the Holy Spirit!? Swell! Does that assertion not make this church leader God, to receive reverential worship? In that same interview he disclosed that the crown he had on his head was the selfsame one Jesus wore in heaven before His incarnation. Jesus, according to him, had to lay down the crown to perform the salvational work. For his (Olutanmole) status, the crown was given to him (as if the Holy Spirit must of necessity wear a crown probably because He lacked one). He said Christ was given another crown after His earthly mission. I looked at the so called crown and could not help asking myself, “That stupid thing on your head is a celestial crown of Divinity?” Olutanmole, with no shred of doubt, is another Luciferan clown (for millions like Olutanmole are just too eager to wield Satanic authority on behalf of Lucifer).

To the vindictive others, “My enemies, die! (especially witches),” when 2Corinthians 5:18, “And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation,” is telling them that God’s business in this dispensation of grace is to reconcile with sinners. For those who are still bringing the corpse into the church auditorium for prayers please, read my post on “Is May His Soul ‘RIP’ A Prayer?”

When you see churches by the name, ‘African Church of Nigeria’ which we simply call, ‘Africa’, (where chieftaincy titles are bestowed on deserving individuals a la Yoruba tradition) beware lest you may fellowship with practitioners of witchcraft, we have been made to understand. They are known to be an infusion of Christianity and the darkness of the blackness of African magic; no kidding. A whole lots of Anglican Churches, from very reliable sources, are shrines of cultic initiation, especially of the Ogboni Fraternity (there is a particular one in Ikeja, along Agege Motor Road, Lagos State, Nigeria). These days the members do not hide their cultic participation. Large banners display their members who are of high social status, the business world and the highly respected public officers; which is intended to attract the spiritual gullibility by which man is characterized. You will think the Pentecostal adherents should not be involved but unscriptural dos and don’ts are so prevalent in this protestant sect: can you read the Bible and put up some theatrics, hey, you are a pastor, a la Pentecostalism!

Then there is the innocuous Jehovah’s Witnesses. They are definitely not harmless. Anyone who believes in Jehovah but does treat HIS Christ as another angel is as a spiritual pollution as the teachers of Docetism. John wrote of them in 1John 4:3 & 2John 1:10-11. Do you understand what Jesus is intimating us with when He declared, “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30). The conjunction ‘and’ kai (kahee) by Thayer Definition is: ‘and, also, even, indeed, but’. Origin: apparently, a primary particle, having a copulative and sometimes also a cumulative force.’ The auxiliary ‘are’ is esmen (es-men): First person plural indicative of eimi; meaning: ‘we are.’ ‘One,’ in this verse, heis (hice) is ‘one – a neuter gender.’ It is indicative of a substance. St. Augustine was right in saying that the ‘we are’ debunks Sabellian’s denials of the distinction of Persons in the Godhead, while condemning the Arian’s (who influenced Charles Taze Russell, the founder of Jehovah’s Witness) insistence that Christ is homiosious (of a like substance with the Father) and not homoousious (of the very substance as the Father) which Jesus, here, declares. My Christian people do not study the Bible at all!

In the book of Matthew 13:43 Jesus explained the figurative parable in the clarity of the literal concreteness to erase any iota of human doubting propensity. Verse 42, “And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth;” has words like: ‘cast’ ballō (bal’-lo) ‘to throw or let go of a thing without caring where it falls;’ ‘fire’ pur (poor) A primary word; ” fire” (literally or figuratively, specifically;’ ‘wailing’ (which is not dakruō (dak-roo’-o) ‘to cry silently’) it is klauthmos (klowth-mos) ‘lamentation’ which comes from klaiō (klah’-yo) ‘to sob, that is, wail aloud;’ the conjunction ‘and’ between wailing and gnashing is: kai (kahee): ‘and, also, even, indeed, but.’ Then we have, from the same verse, ‘gnashing’: brugmos (broog-mos) a grating (of the teeth) this brugmos is from (bruchō [broo’-kho] ‘to grate the teeth (in pain or rage).’

There are six other verses which talk about gnashing of teeth. Jamieson, Fausset and Brown Commentary does an excellent job as it comments that: “”casting” or “flinging” expressive of indignation, abhorrence, contempt (compare Psalm 9:17; Dan 12:2): “the furnace of fire” denoting the fierceness of the torment: the “wailing” signifying the anguish this causes; while the “gnashing of teeth” is a graphic way of expressing the despair in which its remedilessness issues.” Revelation 19:20, “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.” Revelation 20:10, “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” Revelation 20:14, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” Rev 20:15, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Four scriptures, these are, testifying of a physical great pond of raging conflagration!

The society of door knocking, a founding of Charles Russell, will never agree with these exegeses of overwhelming scriptural truth, but will rather sink their ignorant teeth in unrelated verses like Acts 2:29 “Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day;” and the first part of Ezekiel 18:20 “The soul that sinneth, it shall die…” to explain ‘no hell’ away. Another defensive argument they give is by querying, “How can a merciful God be so wicked to burn people?” Russell and his witnessing lot do not study the Holy Bible for if they do they would have remembered the story of Lazarus and the rich man, one in a comfortable ‘Abraham’s bosom’ and the other in hell (hades – land of the wicked dead)! God would not burn people, really? What about the rain of conflagration HE poured in torrents on the twin nations of Sodom and Gomorrah? Too merciful eh? What did the great Deluge do to all earthlings save the eight souls of Noah’s family? Try drowning to death and understand what a painful thing they were judged with by this same JEHOVAH!

The book of Genesis begins with, “In the beginning God…” where God, Elohiym, is a Hebraic plural noun. I have searched the scriptures and the plurality of this God, according to HIS protocol, the Bible, there exist only THREE PERSONAGES, in the Godhood (the original word for Godhead). I searched further on and I found that the singularity of Elohiym which is Elowha, appears 56 times; fifty-one times in designation to Jehovah and the remaining five in connection with an idol. If the scripture has in this wise explained the Trinitarian conundrum, it then follows that the possibility of a fourth member of the Godhead must, as of a necessity, be a created one. Four, is the scriptural number for creation. The Church, the new created people of God, the Bride of Christ, sharing a common Holy Spirit with God is the fourth that shall be the apocalypse. Jesus said, in John 14:3, “…that where I am there ye may be also.” There are times when a verb is not an inflection of another in scriptures, but not in this verse. The verb ‘am’ is: eimi (i-mee) ‘First person singular present indicative; a prolonged form of a primary and defective verb; I exist (used only when emphatic).’ This eime is what it is expressed when God told Moses, ‘I AM’. The auxiliary ‘be’ is the Greek: ō (o) Thayer Definition: ‘be, may be, etc.’

Strong’s Definition: ‘Including the oblique forms, as well as ēs (ace); ē (ay,) etc.; the subjunctive of eimi; (may,might, can, could, would, must, etc.; also with other particles) be.’ The subjunctive definition of be, in its removal of doubts, prove our spiritual relationship with God. The Bible says when we are transmuted we will be like Christ, higher than the angels. Our inheritance is the very throne of God. This is exactly what Lucifer tried to acquire unsuccessfully. For this reason he hates man, lying to esotericism that he, Lucifer is the rightful owner of the throne and they are, in their millions, falling for the grand deceit. They have what they need: political and economic power to consummate the installation of the antichrist.


The Antichrist As World Ruler

The Antichrist (as world ruler)

This reminds me of Rev. Chris Okotie’s very deep teachings. He taught, “When Jesus resurrected, two others stood up, the angels and the Roman soldiers, even after they fell as if dead; (meaning that, according to Pastor Chris Okotie), Rome will be in control of global government when Jesus returns and with the angels. The priests, representing the Jewish Ecclesiastes gave money to the Roman soldiers to lie about the truth of the resurrection, which they had told the priests. The priest provided the economic power to the Roman political power.” Great revelation! Is it not? What Okotie taught is happening presently. The Jews are the richest people on earth today. The likes of Rothschild, Rockefeller, Merovingian dynasty, Collins are said to be of Jewish descent. You will never hear of the extent of their riches because it is unbelievably too enormous! With this kind of stupendous wealth and the satanic power they wield, they have funded the establishment of governments, religious institutions (which they continue to support financially) and have funded the publishing of bible versions (with so much corruptions of God’s word). All of these incursions are done in a nefarious bid to run as a parallel assemblage to give an evil counter effect to the productiveness of God’s Church, when they would have installed the antichrist. Let thy Kingdom come! Amen!


Hail Mary! Mother of God!?

Hail Mary! Mother of God!?

History, it is believed, has had its documentation overly tampered with. A fictitious Apostle Simon Peter had for over a millennium been touted as the first pope of Roman Catholic Church. Someone believes that Catholicism began around 50 A.D. Could Peter have gone through the rituals of “Hail Mary, Queen of heaven”? Could it be true that Magus Simon, the sorcerer who simonized Peter, was the true founder of Catholicism? We know of certainty that it was never the Peter of the Bible, never! Why will Catholicism still thrive with all the overwhelming scriptural references that we have poured forth to prove the futility of the naughtiness characterizing their evil dogmas? It is simply because they have decided to be used by man’s greatest enemy, Lucifer, the Devil. When I look at the contribution of Catholicism to the disarray of the Church of God I have neither a doubt nor an apology in seeing it as the biggest religious fraud on earth! It took about a thousand and a half years for a protestant voice to effect a break from the iron clutches of Papal Catholicism!
I just cannot get over the fact of the dearth of biblical understanding among Christians when I hear something like the one that filtered into my ears from a pastor, “The Roman Catholic can’t be ignored, after all it is our mother church.” I wondered, “What, where did you get that! Don’t you know the Church was inaugurated in the ‘upper room’ on the day of Pentecost?” It was birthed by the Holy Spirit HIMSELF (to establish God’s eternal ownership) on Pentecost Day (for whosoever will be involved in this epochal movement shall have the second death pass over him. Amen!). Catholicism interloped! The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” so how come Catholicism teaches still of purgatory? Simony is definitely the hidden answer! Are billions of souls not involved in this heinousness? Is it not for this reason Jesus warned, “…broad is the way…?” Catholicism is of the firm belief that the Church is to be placed above scripture, the express Word of God, instead of subject to it, little wonder the Protestant angst. Philosophical isms thrived under the Catholic hegemony of the Church, unfortunately.
Pelagianism, Scholasticism (9th-17th c.), humanism (13th c.), and their offshoots: existentialism, liberalism or modernism and neo-orthodoxy received a flourishing Catholic espousal. Pelagius (circa 354–420/440 A.D.) was an ascetic who denied the need for divine aid in performing good works. His teachings influenced Arminian belief that one can lose one’s salvation. Scholasticism, a tradition or school of philosophy, originating in the Middle Ages, combines classical philosophy with Catholic theology; “It is a philosophic and theological movement that attempted to use natural human reason, in particular, the philosophy and science of Aristotle, to understand the supernatural content of Christian revelation. It was dominant in the medieval Christian schools and universities of Europe from about the middle of the 11th century to about the middle of the 15th century. The ultimate ideal of the movement was to integrate into an ordered system both the natural wisdom of Greece and Rome and the religious wisdom of Christianity” (from Encarta 2009).

Secular Humanism

‘In the beginning,’ humanism believes, ‘man made God’

Humanism is a term freely applied to a variety of beliefs, methods and philosophies that place central emphasis on the human realm; and though much of its activity was Christian intentioned, the relationship between Christianity and humanism is complex and not wholly untroubled: for Erasmus, Calvin and Melanchthon did approach scripture humanistically. Kierkegaard (1813-1855) who taught that Abraham’s acceptance to sacrifice Isaac made Abraham a murderer (forgetful of Genesis 22:1), is the founder of Liberalism, a philosophy which rejects the Bible as the infallible word of God and disparaging objective, intellectual truth, is based on subjective, emotional and personal experience. These incursions create in many church leaders, a sense of individualism.
It does not surprise me, therefore, when in some churches the pastors give a prayer point to members thus, “Pray to God to give you the power of the Holy Spirit, in order to overcome witches!” Have these pastors and or evangelists forgotten what Jesus promised in, Acts 1:8 “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth”? Right from the upper room event of the day of Pentecost (Acts chapter 2), every born again Christian is endowed with the Holy Ghost power. You will also hear a prayer instruction like, “Call the name of Jesus three times before you pray this prayer” or “Call the name of Jesus seven times and say Holy Ghost Fire three times then pray harrrrd!” Where, in the Bible do you have this formula? Methinks it is faith, Mark 11:24, “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” “Today, you are going to give offering for each of your business, career, house, home, Sunday worship, end of the year, the incoming year and whichever you’ll wish to add and make sure not forget that of your first fruit.” The monied members, especially, the very rich are the ones who will satiate the pastors’ filthy lucre mindset. The millionaires have the church leaders’ ears and unalloyed attention. Their huge expenditure and influence (satanic) have drawn another roadmap for the ecclesiastics. You will hear the head of the local assembly warning, “God doesn’t want to see the hair of women, therefore cover your head tightly, leaving not even a strand of hair loose; fear God!”
I was explaining to Sunday and Segun, two colleagues at Household of God Church, how I believe 80% of Christians believe that salvation can be lost and Sunday said, “You are not even talking about 90%,” while Segun’s understanding was, “In fact it’s like 99%!” Please read my post, a five-part “Why Go Arminianistic Soteriology” with over 130 treated verses to show that if you are truly born again you cannot lose your salvation. Some are too holier than thou such that they dare not put on a foot wear the minute they are dressed for church service, God will, no doubt, be wroth with them! I can tell you in all sincerity that this insistence on bare foot worship is not in any way from the Bible, it emanates from the occult practices.

If you know or should be endowed with the flimsiest idea of the glorious splendour of God’s majestic enthronement and of the unfathomable power He wields; and an idea of the terribleness of His awesomeness, then you will understand the amazing effect of the astounding privilege involved in the fellowship with the High and Lofty One in the worship of Him! It is the rarest pleasure to stand before the thrice holy God in worship and to call His name. It is an affinity most overpowering. The first church was called out in heaven, in the presence of the Father, even in His celestial assizes. The head of praise and worship of the celestial church, no doubt, was Lucifer (Ezekiel 28:13, 14).



Lucifer-an-angel-of-music 20144498

Lucifer, an angel of music.

Lucifer, in his own thinking (his fatal flaw), thought it not robbery to be equal with his God (an evil falsehood). At his creation, Lucifer was named by Christ, his LORD, and quite not unlike Adam, who came after him, and was instructed with, “….dress it and keep it” Genesis 2:15, so was Lucifer told by the same Christ to “cover”, Ezekiel 28:14. Lucifer is called the anointed cherub which made him the angelic being of the highest hierarchical order. As the anointed cherub he was appointed the protector of the throne room as the word ‘anointed’ in Hebrew mimshach: ‘expansion ; outspread i.e. with outstretched wings (from ‘rubbing with oil’ in the sense of spreading it)’ testify. The word ‘covereth’ sakak (saw-kak) means: ‘to entwine as a screen; by implication to fence in, cover over, (figuratively) protect.’ He was the head of the angels, the first born of all intelligent beings. His protective role probably gave him an ill-conceived impression of God’s likelihood weakness thus can be pressurized to cave in. The thought of expanding his sphere was Lucifer’s undoing. Lucifer fell! In Genesis 2:15, the word ‘dress’ is, abad {(aw-bad): ‘to work (in any sense); by implication to serve, till, (causatively) enslave}’; which by implication, makes Adam a priestly minister working in the LORD’s vineyard. Lucifer’s fall took place in the very courtroom of heaven. Judgment fell on him and his collaborating angels, sending them to hell. The church in heaven, at the demise of Lucifer, never came to a halt.

Adam sinned right there in the church: for Christ, the LORD God, communed with them every evening in line with Adam’s sacerdotal office. If Adam, like Lucifer, had committed his disobedient sin in God’s throne room physically we would probably not be here now. Maybe it is the reason why Christ did not show up while they were about to munch the destructive fruit (the same evil doctrinal fruit Satan continues to feed the misled church leaders). Adam received forgiveness, so the Church’s seed was kept alive and intact. The Church, if you ask me, is the first born to occupy God’s dream, kept a top, classified secret in the Father, Romans 16:25, Ephesians 3:3-6 & 9, Acts10:28, 1Corinthians 2:7-8 and Colossians 1:18, 25-27. In heaven, Lucifer worshipped freely as he saw fit; on earth God Himself was their covering in worship such that when they sinned He covered them, showing them how to escape the second death. This aided man, being God’s most treasured property. When God destroyed the earth in the great deluge He salvaged the Church in the ark. With eight souls HE saved the Church, eight being the number of new beginning. Tebah (tay-baw) is the Hebrew word for ark, meaning ‘a treasure box.’ Noah’s name means rest, a reminiscence of Sabbath.

The Devil, having lost, lived to his devilish billing in his resolve to destroy God’s church which he could no longer preside over again. He put wrong ideas in Adam. Lucifer was the first to receive wrong ideas inside him. Most definitely, God brought those probatory thoughts into Lucifer. The same evil thoughts Lucifer brought to scuttle Adam’s own probity. “Another first born should suffer abortion”, was Lucifer’s wicked intonation. Not wary of the serpent’s diabolical innuendos, another first born fell!

Today, the Church is fraught with wrong doctrinal dogmas based on mangled scriptures to entrench satanic hold on local assemblies, a very many of whom are directly working for the antichrist. It is for this reason we see the disarray in the Church of the Living God. My own Rev. Chris Okotie will say, “Some of these pastors are sincere, but they are sincerely wrong!” I agree absolutely. Do we not have God’s protocol, the holy writ called the Bible to guide us? Many Church leaders will rather seek dogmatic rules from logical phenomena. Before the time of the incarnation of Christ, the Jehovah inspired Mosaic form of Jewish worship of the true God, which had metamorphosed into a Kabbalistic Judaism, had left the apostate Jewry divided into an irreconcilable four: Pharisee, Sadducee, Essene and Zealot (4 is the number of creation, hence, this is a Jewish creation of religious vandalism).

God is never of confusion, 1Corrinthians 14:33. The legalistic Pharisee sounded the clarion call, “Let’s go back to the old order!” That being the period of legalistic constraints, with the laws staring harshly at all and sundry. “Let’s move forward to a new order,” was the dictate of the Sadducees, whose doctrines reject resurrection, the existence of angels and spirit. When you move without the leading of the Holy Spirit it turns out to be an aimless, unfruitful venture – bad business! “It’s a polluted world, in seclusion we should be,” was the spiritual agreement of the Essenes, hence, they began to live in ascetic monastery. They began a holier than thou religious movement which was so judgmental, seeing no good thing other than their perceptive understanding. The Zealots were very militant so, “Let’s war against Rome and reclaim our freedom!” Could God have drawn and played this religious game? If HE would not, then the identity of such a perpetrator cannot be a mystery. It is the very gate-crasher of Garden of Eden, who did it all over again, spreading doctrines of calumny.

Lucifer, knowing where the truth resides, did not waste time in his guileful conscription of Cerinthus, who got entangled in Docetic ideas hued in Gnosticism, in the Apostolic Era, drawing the ire of John who wrote in 1John 4:3, “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” Of them he also penned, “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds;” 2John 1:10-11. Cerinthus had taught that Christ was merely a consciousness, having no physical existence.
