I KNOW WHY THE CHURCH IS IN DISARRAY (part one)

Jehovah JesusJEHOVAH JESUS

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.

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.
