THE TRUTH OF ALL TRUTHS (V)

 “Come unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden…”

 (5)          Through Moses God did give a hint of His physical manifestation when He said “And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God” [Exodus 29:45]. And the prophetic utterance of Jeremiah 31:31 “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:” is clearly the pointer to the fact that Jesus is the truth that must be sought after.

                The Lord Jesus, as the hodos, is the sole mode of man’s lifestyle. He is the destiny (there’s no other spiritual path) of every negotiating traverse to eternal bliss with the Creator. In calling Himself the Truth, He made an astounding asseveration of His Divinity! “I Am the Reality of life. The real One. The genuine God! “This is what He was telling them, and this is the reason why alētheia is my favourite of the three. Jesus is the zoe of the eternal God.’No Jesus; no life’ should be the motto of all who come to the knowledge of the truth.

               He is our life: Colossians 3:4, “When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” He is our righteousness: Jeremiah 23:5-6, “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. 6) In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” As the perfect Creator we do see Him in Acts 17:28 “For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.” Amen.

                 The reading of John 10:7-18 throws a beam of light on this truthfulness. Verse 8, “All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.” A sheep, in this context, is a follower of God. The Shepherd is the owner of the sheep. Whose property is the entire humanity? God’s. His incarnation is most definitely an ineluctability. Any other being who claimed to know the path to the righteousness of God was a thief and a robber. From Nimrod, magicians, leaders of Egyptian deities, Krishna, Buddha, Orunmila (of Ifa worship) to Zoroaster who pointed to heaven in exclusion of His Christ, Jesus of Nazareth, are all thieves and robbers. The question now is what about those who came after His historical incarnation? No less of thieves and robbers! Verse eleven quotes, “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”The very second He entered into this pellucidity with them their thinking faculties raced them to Psalms 23 and 80! Eureka!

  Yehoshua Mashiyach! The Great Shepherd! Soon coming King! Hallelujah!!

            Who is the Shepherd of the 23rd psalm? The Psalm calls Him LORD (in capitals). This is Jehovah! Study Psalm 80 contextually and you will find out that the Shepherd of Israel is none other than Jehovah! The ‘I am’ of John 14:11 is ego eime in the Greek. Mohammedan Quran’s inability to see Jesus in His truthful light most definitely makes him a thief and a robber. Mohammed of Allah is a desecration of the scriptural Sonship of Jesus.

                There is something readers of the Bible hardly see in John 13:13 which reads, “Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.” It is quite impossible to phantom why God will decide to delve into certain matters: for the untutored mind. Two truths worth mentioning here are the virtue of humility and that of deity. Contextually, a prima facie act of humility of Jesus is unravelled. Jesus made it clear that He was not just their master but, in sincerity, their Lord as well.

      “…and by him all things consist,” Colossians 1:17

                The whole truth concerning this lordship is the theological denotation. Kurios (koo’-ree-os) is the Greek word for ‘Lord’ which comes ‘From κῦρος kuros (supremacy); supreme in authority, that is, (as noun) controller; by implication Mr. (as a respectful title).’ This Greek rendition of ‘Lord’ is the Old Testament ‘LORD’ –in capitals– of Hebraic Jehovah. Jesus concluded with, “for so I am.” Quite interesting. ‘So’ is in italics, hence, not in the original manuscript. To appreciate Jesus’ clarification do pull out the italized. The ‘I am, ‘ego eime, is the Hebrews’ Yahweh. Jesus clearly admits to His Deity.

                You can get born again by saying this simple prayer, believing it with all your heart. Say:

Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sins and You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord, and I receive Him as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory, Amen.

THE TRUTH OF ALL TRUTHS (IV)

(4)          “Search the scriptures;” Jesus challenged in John 5:39, “for in them ye think ye have eternal life:” He reminded them, “and they are they which testify of me,” the Lord of glory concluded in an unveiling of His true Self. Now the word ‘search’ is ereunaō (er-yoo-nah’-o): ‘to seek, that is, (figuratively) to investigate.’ ‘Scripture’ is graphē (graf-ay’): ‘a document, that is, holy Writ (or its contents or a statement in it).’

     Only the first Testator can give the New Covenant: JESUS. Amen!

                 ‘Testify,’ the verb form of marturion is martureō (mar-too-reh’-o) ‘to be a witness, to bear witness, i.e. to affirm that one has seen or heard or experienced something, or that he knows it because taught by divine revelation or inspiration (through the idea of inquiry).’ Put these definitions together and you will not fail to come to the truthful knowledge of the fact that to indagate God’s protocol leads to the discovery of the Author of eternity, Emmanuel, the express image of the unseen Jehovah, Jesus the Christ. Amen.

                Anyone who will come to the saving knowledge of this Truth must walk side by side with Him. One sure way of walking successfully with Him is found in 1Corinthians 10:14, “Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.” One thing that idolatrous propensity engenders is an ignoble parity of idols with Jehovah. By your act, the created becomes a deified object of adoration. An inanimate construction receives obeisant worship. It amounts to the desecration of the truth which does infuriate the countenance of the Almighty Jehovah.

   

      Glorification of Mary, a busy, flying kite of Catholicism,cannot be a biblically sourced practice. Ifa worship (of the Yoruba race) is pure idolatry. Allah (who is this Allah?) has no mentioning in God’s protocol. Quranic refutations of biblical documentations are deviations from the truth.In the book of John chapter 14 verse 6, John wrote, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” This is a categorical statement.

                The clause, ‘I am’ is epithetical. If Jesus, and none else, is the tripartite way, truth and life and it is equally true that He is the only medium to the Father’s approach, why should the Catholic Pope raise a Mary who did not and could not have gone to the cross to perform the substitutionary sacrifice? The word ‘way’ is hodos (hod-os’). It means: ‘a road; by implication a progress (the route, act or distance); figuratively a mode or means; lifestyle; destiny.’ Let us look at ‘truth’ which is alētheia (al-ay’-thi-a); it comes from alēthēs (al-ay-thace’) ‘true (as not concealing).’ Alēthēs is a combination of ‘a’ and ‘lantano’ where ‘a’ is the ‘negative not’ and ‘lantano’ is ‘hidden.’ Alētheia, therefore, is defined as ‘unconcealed truth; reality.’ By the definition of ‘truth,’ Jesus says, “I AM the reality –of God.” Life is zoe: ‘God’s kind of eternal life.’

          The epithetic stance of ‘I am’ stems from its definition. It is the Septuagint rendition of ego eime, which is the same as the revelation of God’s name -I AM or Jehovah. This is the facticity of the person of Jesus -the ‘I AM’ of the New Testament. It will be a usurpative act on His part to institute a new covenant had He not been the Initiator of the new: “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins” [Matthew 26:28]. This should take us back to Genesis 15:18, “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:” It received a reenactment in the wilderness: “And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words” [Exodus 24:8]. Confer Genesis 17:8-16.

THE TRUTH OF ALL TRUTHS (III)

 (Continued from part two…)

(3)     

    Hindu religion has a congregation of about a billion. Islam boasts of something like eight hundred million. And Catholic? A whopping 1.2 billion die hard adherents! The Lord Jesus is no doubt addressing religionists in the book of Matthew 7:13, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.” The next verse quotes Him in a conclusion of: “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:14).

         And I will dwell among the children of Israel (as Jesus)

                Should our focus not be the One whose encouragement and warning is couched in Luke 13:24? He prophesied, “Strive to enter in at the strait gate:for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.” Why would John pen “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” of John 1:18? It was simply because He had opened up the truth in John 6:46, “Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.” Jesus is the truth that leads to the eternal truth -of Himself. Any other ground is sinking sand. Amen.

                Ephesians 5:6 enunciates, “Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.” There is a certain frightening judgment upon those who are out of spiritual alignment with this Christological truth. ‘Deceive,’ from the above verse is apataō (ap-at-ah’-o): ‘to cheat, beguile, that is, delude.’ ‘Vain’ is kenos (ken-os’) ’empty, vain, devoid of truth; of places, vessels, etc. which contain nothing.’

 The Truth Must be unveiled at the age of HIS number: 12! In the Temple!

                The next is ‘word,’ logos (log’-os), meaning: ‘something said (including the thought); by implication a topic (subject of discourse), also reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive; by extension a computation; specifically (with the article in John) the Divine Expression (that is, Christ).”Disobedience’ is apeitheia (ap-i’-thi-ah): Thayer Definition: ‘obstinacy, obstinate opposition to the divine will.’ Strong’s Definition: ‘disbelief (obstinate and rebellious).’ There is nothing that surpasses your spiritual derailment in the spitish heartlessness of Lucifer. He hates with a determined passion!

 Whether it is religious coexistence or syncretism, it has not Christ.

                Romans 6:21says, What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. The end result of Christlessness is the doom of death. It is definitely a thing of eternal shame to step into the celestial realm without Jesus. It is a fruitless venture to be devoid of the Truth of all truths: Jesus. There are countless philosophies, religious dogmas, ethnic habitude and personal conceptions that do not actuate the Christological truism. It will be a thing of utter shame to bring these before the throne of the LORD God.

                For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself(Galatians 6:3). Remove the truth and there will be a flourishing business for deceit. The height of egregious stupidity is the commiserable deceit of oneself.     

     The Incarnation of the Truth

                “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” [Matthew 24:14] is the asseverative prophesy uttered by Jesus Himself. Only the Truth can shed divine light on what to come in the future. Euaggelion (yoo-ang-ghel’-ee-on) is the Greek word for ‘gospel’ and is defined as: ‘a good message.’ His kingdom comes with a good message of redemptive package for the earth’s populated walking cadavers. This is the most sought after answer to man’s biggest worry: life after man’s earthly life. ‘Witness’ is marturion (mar-too’-ree-on) Thayer Definition: ‘testimony’ Strong’s Definition: ‘something evidential, that is (generally) evidence given or (specifically) the Decalogue (in the sacred Tabernacle).’ The One who created mankind, gave him a freewill or free moral agency has made available a true way of escape. He is the only Person to intimate man with the time of the end of sinfulness.

                                                               YES!!!

                You can get born again by saying this simple prayer, believing it with all your heart. Say:     

Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sins and You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord, and I receive Him as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen.

THE TRUTH OF ALL TRUTHS (II)

   THE MOST ENIGMATIC PERSONAGE TO TREAD OUR EARTH

 (…continued from the 1st part…)

(2)           ‘Wonderful’ from Isaiah 9:6 comes from the Hebrew pele’ (peh’-leh) ‘a miracle.’ It comes from the root word pâlâ’ (paw-law’) ‘to be marvellous, be wonderful, be surpassing, be extraordinary, separate by distinguishing action.’ A miracle is uniquely a preserve of the Divinity. The antipodal magic only affords the satanic dance of the spirit of caricature. Magic is a mere travesty of divine operation. ‘Counsellor’ is yâ‛ats (yaw-ats’): ‘to advise; reflexively to deliberate or resolve.’ Jesus is the only truth who counsels the true mind of the Eternal Father. “And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven”  [John3:13]. The paradox that stared at the theological imagination of Nicodemus has continued to glare at our mental perception.

How can the one who came from heaven, and presently existing on terra firma, be said to be, at the same time, in heaven? It is the amazing, undiluted truth of His Deity. Confer John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word…….”

The adjectival ‘mighty’ of Isaiah 9:6 is gibbôr (ghib-bore’): powerful; by implication warrior, tyrant;’ while the noun ‘God’ is ‘êl (ale) ‘strength; as adjective mighty; especially the Almighty (but used also of any deity).’ There is no sound reasonableness to deny these sobriquets as being that of Jehovah. Epithetical strengths of ‘everlasting Father’ and ‘Prince of Peace’ can only favour a reference to the Almighty God. The word ‘Prince,’ śar (sar), means ‘a head person (of any rank or class); a ruler.’ Jesus, going by these sobriquets, is the eternal Father and the Ruler of the eternal peace of creation as well.

pagan-trinities

These are trinities of religions without the Christ

“There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness” [Proverbs 30:12]. The noun ‘generation’ that is, dôr (dore) which means: ‘period, habitation, age, generation (period of time) generation (those living during a period),’ fittingly is of mankind and his days of existence. The word ‘pure’ is ṭâhôr (taw-hore’), meaning ‘pure (in a physical, chemical, ceremonial or moral sense).’ Tsô’âh (tso-aw’) is the Hebrew for ‘filthiness’ and it is defined as: ‘excrement; generally dirt; figuratively pollution.’ About 90% of Indians would rather be plunged into the Ganges for purification than come to the saving grace of Jesus, the Way, Truth and the Life. Sadducean perspective, the purity of Pharisaicalness and especially the monastic shun of the world of sin stance of the Essenes, all of which are devoid of the sacrificial Lamb of God, amount to nothing!

Does Islam and Jesus have any spiritual communion?

The physical works of the five pillars of Islam and the mandatory jihadist strive to martyrdom as the prerequisite for the Mohammedan heaven does not, in any way, involve Jesus, the Spirit and Word of God, and to whom all the eleven times appearance of Messiah in the Quran, was ascribed. A look at: Sahih al-Bukhari, Belief. Book 2, Hadith 18. Narrated ‘Ibn ‘Umar: it quotes, “Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger (pbuh), and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah.”

Even if one declares the Lordship of Jesus over his life, Mohammed says, that as long as he refuses to chant “Allahu akbar!” Mohammed’s sword is upon his neck. Sahih Muslim, The Book of Virtues, Book 44, Hadith 6251 Narrated ‘Jubair b. Mut’im reported on the authority of his father that he heard Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) as saying: I am Muhammad and I am Ahmad, and I am al-Mahi (the obliterator) by whom unbelief would be obliterated, and I am Hashir (the gatherer) at whose feet mankind will be gathered, and I am ‘Aqib (the last to come) after whom there will be no Prophet. What does this connote? The prophecies of Mohammad are God’s last words to all mankind, not the Bible –which makes 75% of the Qur’an.

Sahih al-Bukhari, Belief Book 2, Hadith 7 Narrated ‘Abu Huraira: “Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said, “By Him in Whose Hands my life is, none of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father and his children.” Does this not make him another Christ? Sahih al-Bukhari, Belief Book 2, Hadith 8 Narrated ‘Anas: The Prophet (pbuh) said “None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind.” John 10:8, All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. Most definitely, those who come after in the disguise of Christ “are thieves and robbers.”

Did Mary overcome the enemy by the use of her rosary?!

At their mass, Catholicism will give more adoring worship to Mariolatry than to Yehoshua, the Emmanuel, the Creator and sole Saviour of the entire world. Listen to a typical Roman Catholic sermon. It is not only puerile, the mediatrix of mariology takes prominence, relegating Jesus to the back burner. You will see sophistry overstretching the truth, based on Catholicism.

                 You can get born again by saying this simple prayer, believing it with all your heart. Say: Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sins and You raised Him from the dead.
