Wisdom Is A Personage [1]

1)            God is said to have in His possession, wisdom, before creationism. Taken literally, does it not tend to infer that the Almighty went in search –to gain an acquisition— of wisdom to help Him in the perfection of the work of creativity? If the LORD God had to acquire wisdom to bolster His omniscience for a successful creation, does it not chime the bell of pellucidity that He never had wisdom before its acquisition? If He had to look for an enhancing tool, that tells the logicality of my reasoning faculty –hypothetically so— that what the LORD God looked for was placed there –where He found it— by a certain happenstance or another living entity. This will mean that wisdom is either older than the Creator or that the entity that placed wisdom where it was found is a contemporary of the Most High. It also means that wisdom knows the beginning of the Divinity, ergo, it is either older or boasts of coetaneous eld with the Creator.

                The eighth chapter of the scriptural Book of Proverbs begins with, “Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?” ‘Wisdom’ is the Hebraic chokmâh (khok-maw’): ‘skill in: a) war b) administration; shrewdness and prudence in: a) religious affairs b) ethics.’ Can God be said to be looking for this skill and its attendant prudence? Nay: for these are actually His inherent attributes. Wisdom, in this chapter of the Solomonic Book of Proverbs, is personified. The distaff appropriation of ‘wisdom’ is apropos for the gentleness of reason and of the known maternal productivity. Since wisdom is hyponymical to learning and instructions couched in words, this personification should not be seen as an absurdity. It may not represent the gender of the true person but Scriptural couch can be allegoric. The Holy Spirit is described as a mother hen [Genesis 1:2] when Mosaic script says, “And the Spirit of God moved upon…..” where the ‘moved,’  râchaph (raw-khaf’) means: ‘to hover; to brood -mother hen over her eggs- by implication to be relaxed:’ The word ‘cry’ (of Proverbs 8:1) is qârâ’ (kaw-raw’): ‘to call, call out, recite, read, cry out, proclaim; encounter through the idea of accosting a person met.’

The Word is a Personage

                 Verses one to the fourth are intimations of the universality of her call and fame. Verses five to six give evidence of her existence. The 7th to the 9th speak of her Excellency. The nature of her persona is mentioned in the 10th to 14th verses. The intimacy of verses 15 to 17 is of the power wielded by wisdom. The display of her riches is found in verses 18 to 21. The 22nd verse speaks of the eternality of wisdom. In verse 32, ‘Wisdom’ is to be desired for the blessedness it brings.

                        The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old” [Pro. 8:22]. The exactitude of the time of His first movement cannot receive a measurement of mathematical account. It must be of eternity. Nothing had been brought into creation. Wisdom says that the Creator possessed Her in the beginning of creation. Whatever or whoever was or were with the Creator must of an ineluctability be eternal as well. 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” [John 1:1-4]. Reading Colossians chapter 2 from verse 1 makes it clear who the Subject of this verse is. “In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge;” reveals Colossians 2:3. Ask yourself, “Can a being of the creation of God be capable of having hidden in his being, ‘all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge?’” It is impossible! Why impossible? That being will be as knowledgeable as the Supreme Being Himself!

                “I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was” [Proverbs 8:23]. Does the Scripture agree with this Christ’s externality of Solomonic revelation? The Old Testament profers the solution in Micah 5:2 “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” No entity of creation has an empiric tag of everlasting to his existence. When Jesus told His hearers, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me“ [John 5:39]; Prophet Micah and his vaticination happened to be one of those who, through the Holy Spirit’s inspiration, got mankind ready for the Incarnation of the Divinity. Is Jesus Christ truly eternal? He made an asseveration to the fact in John 8:58, “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”

Get born again. Say 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 that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”

Christianity Is Acquittal And Discharge From Sinful Gaol. [5]

                     Portrait of a Christian: acquitted, discharged and very beautiful!

(…continue from part four…)

5)            The Christian’s case is likened to a speaker of a seminar –needed for just three weeks— whose return ticket, airport taxi shuttle from home, lodging for fifty-two weeks, every meal and snacks and taxi services back home have all been settled, and above all, a million dollars’ weekly stipend credited to his bank account. Now tell me how much he is expected to pay from his pocket towards his participation in the seminar? Jesus Christ has truly taken absolute care of all our spiritual debts. Amen.

                1John 1:6-9 “If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8) If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” God knows that the propensity of our carnality will be forced into ignition almost all the time. To His possessed people, acquitted and discharged, God continues to prove His faithfulness in the forgiveness of committed sins. This Scripture is actually meant only for Christians.

                God’s long-suffering nature is the most comforting care that continues to keep us from being flung into annihilation. None can ever give what he has not. The proof of God’s long-suffering nature was a manifestation when He came down in His empyrean Majesty. The same hand of His eternal care was the utility of His protective care, of which employment He shielded Moses from gazing at His adjudicating face of eternality lest Moses be cut off from the living. Exodus 34:6-7 “And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, 7) Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.” ‘Merciful’ comes from the Hebraic lrachûm (rakh-oom’) meaning: ‘Compassionate or sympathetic.’

                The Hebrew word for ‘gracious,’ channûn (khan-noon’), comes from its root, chânan (khaw-nan’): ‘portraying God as bending or stooping in kindness to an inferior; to favor, bestow; causatively to implore (that is, move to favor by petition).’ ‘Long-suffering’ comes from ‘ârêk and ‘aph. The first one, ‘ârêk (aw-rake’) means: ‘long (pinions), patient, slow to anger.’ The next, ‘aph (af), is: ‘the nose or nostril; hence the face, and occasionally a person; also (from the rapid breathing in passion) ire:’ put together, you have: ‘not easily moved to anger by what comes to one’s face’. God’s attribute of ‘goodness’ chêsêd (kheh’-sed), means: ‘kindness, faithfulness.’ Then we have ‘truth’ which is ’emeth (eh’-meth): (noun feminine) ‘firmness, faithfulness, sureness, reliability; stability, continuance; certainty, trustworthiness.’

                A good Bible student will move, with ease that accompanies the Holy Spirit’s divine didactics, scripturally, way back to Genesis. The Eden garbing of Adam the male and the female made it a possibility for the same LORD God, who provided them with the garb of forgiveness, to step again into time, Who is eternal, to display His full beneficence, in His full glory. The LORD God appeared to Moses as both the impeccable Judge and the eternal Saviour. God must both be the ultimate Judge and the undying Saviour to perfect the soteriology. At Eden, the sin contaminated Adam and he ran into hiding, feeling badly garbed in iniquitous disposition to come face to face with the Most High who had walked in Majesty into Eden, His home. At the Mount Sinai experience, Moses, who, hitherto, had spoken so familiarly with His God, could not lift up even his hoary head to apprehend the physical presence of Divinity. It was too much for the carnality of the terra firma. How come this reality? Moses came into contact with the scriptural “Which is, and which was, and which is to come.”

                How can mortality behold simultaneously the Eternality of the past, the stepping into mortality of time by Timelessness, and the very same Who happens to be older than eternity to come? That was not, in any conceivability, an angel; that was not an apparition. Walking before Moses, in His physical glory, was the empyrean Majesty: the LORD God of creationism. He had to appear personally to announce the soon to be perfected terms of the soteriological rites. What He killed to provide forgiveness in Eden, He would assume to prove His graciousness to mankind whom He had created not only in His likeness, but in the Divinity of His image. Abundant forth-pouring of mercy of eternal dimension, aimed at the Adamic forgiveness can only be perfected when, as the great Shepherd, He should stoop low, in the similitude of a servant, in kindness to the inferior object of creationism. Amen.

                Spiritual acquittal and discharge takes place only when one is born again. To be born again, say, with all your heart, this simple prayer:

“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 that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”

How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince’s daughter! [Song 7:1]

(…continue from part three…)

4)            1Peter 2:24 “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” 1Peter 3:18 “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:” The ‘quickened’ of 1Peter 3:18 is zoopoieo (zō-o-poi-ye’-ō): ‘to (re-)vitalize; to make alive.

                The following verses are proofs of the Christian’s acquitted and discharged persona. Acts 13:37-39 “But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption. 38) Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: 39) And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.” Every born again Christian assumes Christ’s ‘no corruption’ persona. The word ‘forgiveness’ of the 38th verse is aphesis (a’-fe-sis) meaning: ‘1. a removal. 2. (figuratively) a pardon, a release (from guilt and penalty).’ The word ‘justified’ is dikaioo (d̮iy-kai-o’-ō): ‘1. to regard as righteous. 2. (judicially) to regard as innocent.’ To be scripturally ‘justified’ is as if one has never committed any sin at all. He is a brand new man, all the days of his regenerate life. What does 2Corinthians 5:17 say? Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. The newness is eternal freshness: for it resides before the unchanging Jehovah in the celestial assizes of the Rainbow Administration.

                Romans 3:20 “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” The Christian’s existentiality is not under the Law of Moses. There is, therefore, no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1); the Eternal Judge has legally pronounced them acquitted and discharged Christians. Romans 4:23-25 “Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; 24) But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; 25) Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.” Dikaiosis (d̮iy-kai’-ō-sis) is the Greek for ‘justification’ and it means: ‘aquittal (for Christ’s sake).’

                2Corinthians 5:14-17 “For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:  15) And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 16) Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Sunecho (sïn-e’-chō) is the Greek for ‘constraineth’ which means: ‘1. to hold together, i.e. to compress (the ears, with a crowd or siege) or arrest (a prisoner). 2. (figuratively) to compel, perplex, afflict, preoccupy.’ The word ‘judge’, krino (kriy’-nō), in this context, is  ‘(properly) to distinguish, i.e. decide (mentally or judicially)’; and not that of condemnation.

                A stupefying change is the occurrence when Jesus died for us on the cross. When He died, we, the preordained elect of the foreknowledge of Jehovah, died with Him to rise with the Great Shepherd on the third day. Our nature, through this inexplicable phenomenon, changed. We took on His divine nature: never to be arraigned for any spiritual offence, here on earth and in the empyreal assizes. Glory be to Jesus, now and forever. Amen!

                Titus 3:5-7 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6) Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7) That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” All that a Christian does is just respond to God’s love and call; a personal righteousness is not a requirement, simply because the right stand of Adamic direction is fraught with corruption. It cannot appeal to God’s compassion. The Lord, for this reason, set in motion His saving grace, placed it in Jesus Christ: that “whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16); which properly translates into “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).

                The Greek for ‘regeneration’ in Titus 3:5 is paliggenesia (pal-ing-ghen-es-ee’-ah), which classically is of Cicero’s [The Roman statesman and orator Mārcus Tullius Cicerō (106-43 BC)]restoration to rank and fortune on his recall from exile. The New Testament understanding is: ‘(spiritual) rebirth (the state or the act), that is, (figuratively) spiritual renovation; specifically Messianic restoration:‘ and ‘justified’ is dikaioō (dik-ah-yo’-o): ‘to declare, pronounce, one to be just, righteous, or such as he ought to be; to render (that is, show or regard as) just or innocent.’ Dikaioō is a restoration that gives one a new nature as if that one had never committed any sin. As a matter of the scriptural veridical fact, the Lord Jesus has paid for our spiritual debt, not in part, but in full.

                Spiritual acquittal and discharge takes place only when one is born again. To be born again, say, with all your heart, this simple prayer:

“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 that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”

3)            The accentuation of our acquaintance has a documentation in 1John 4:17 “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.” I have always maintained that Christians are the most favoured species of creationism. A Christian must be first acquitted of the Adamic sinful nature to be God’s treasured possession. We are as Christ Himself is. ‘As he is,’ is the Greek καθως εκεινος εστιν, a transliteration of kathōs ekeinos esti. How is Christ? He is as we read in Psalm 45:7 “Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.” Isaiah 11:5 “And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.” Philippians 3:9 “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:” 1John 3:7 “Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.” Christians cannot be wallowing in the debt of sinfulness and be said to have the righteousness of Christ. One should have been acquitted to don the righteousness of God.

                Jesus Christ is holy. Acts 3:14 “But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;” 1Peter 1:19 “But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:” for this reason we are holy and without blemish before the thrice holy Jehovah. Why? As Jesus is, so we (born again Christians) are in the world. The Lord Jesus is the One of purity. 1John 3:3 “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” 1John 3:5 “And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.” Our spiritual DNA does not have any nature of sin to display. We, favourably, are as the Lord our Saviour. Amen. “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:” [1Corinthians 1:30].

                Spiritual acquaintance makes unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption. If God be for us who can be against us, the elect? Absolutely none can. Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” One of Christ’s characters in this verse is, Everlasting Father. As the offspring of the eternality of His Fatherhood, we live as eternally as Jesus Christ. Amen.

                Discharged from sin, we stand by the side of our Redeemer. Romans 6:1-11, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3) Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4) Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5) For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6) Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7) For he that is dead is freed from sin. 8) Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 9) Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10) For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 11) Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

                Colossians 2:20-22 “Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, 21) (Touch not; taste not; handle not; 22) Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?” Our natural sinfulness, nailed to the Golgotha substitutionary death, we stand legally discharged for as long as Christ sits at the right hand of the eternality of the Divinity –in the celestial assizes.Hebrews 10:1-2 “For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. 2) For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.”  The New Testamentary economy, unlike the Old Order, cleanses the sin nature thoroughly. Jesus addressed the sin question, solved it once for all and forever when He performed the substitutionary death on the cross.

                Spiritual acquittal and discharge takes place only when one is born again. To be born again, say, with all your heart, this simple prayer:

“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 that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”

2)            Let us do a gingerly examen of Romans 8:29-34 “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30) Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 31) What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32) He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33) Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. 34) Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.” We begin with ‘foreknow’ of the 29th verse. It is proginōskō (prog-in-oce’-ko): ‘to know beforehand, that is, foresee’. So many Christians tend to teach things that slant towards a deterministic view of the Divinity as it pertains to why horrendous events eventuate, believing that God actually did those things. The word ‘conformed’ is summorphos (soom-mor-fos’): ‘having the same form as another; similar.’

                Almighty’s faculty of foreknowledge is what is really at play and not that of the Catholicism of St. Augustine of Hippo-inspired Calvinistic lapsarianism. Then we have ‘predestinate’ of verse 30 which the Greek calls proorizō (pro-or-id’-zo): 1. ‘to predetermine, decide beforehand. 2. in the NT –of God decreeing from eternity.’ So, what happens here is simply that, from the eternity past, before He ever created anything at all, the LORD looked into the future and decided to save those who would heed His soteriological call and be counted among the saints of His Church. What is ‘justified’? It is dikaioō (dik-ah-yo’-o): ‘to declare, pronounce, one to be just, righteous, or such as he ought to be; to render (that is, show or regard as) just or innocent.’

                ‘Glorified’ is doxazō (dox-ad’-zo): ‘to praise, extol, magnify, celebrate; hold in honour; to impart glory to something, render it excellent.’ Believe it if you do not; come to the understanding if you do not have it, that the Christian is, before the thrice holy Jehovah, excellent species of His creation. Praise the LORD! In the 33rd verse of Romans 8, the words, ‘lay to the charge’ is egkaleō (eng-kal-eh’-o): ‘to come forward as accuser against; bring charge against.’

                Contextually, the convexity of “If God be for us, who can be against us?” serves as the backdrop for the Christian’s acquittal: this must be noted. It is a rhetorical effusion that makes way for the following series of Pauline rhetorical questions from verse 32 to the 39th, proving that absolutely nothing comes at par with the Most High Jehovah. If absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of Christ, then, we are eternally safe in this salvation wrought on the cross of Calvary.

                Romans 14:2-4 “For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. 3) Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him. 4) Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.” The LORD God who ‘received’ the Christians in verse three is the very One who also enables the ‘stand’ of the same ones in the fourth verse to engender the acquittal of His possessed, glorified children.

                The word ‘received’ comes from pros and lambanō. Pros (pros) is a preposition of direction; ‘to the advantage of; forward to, that is, toward (with the genitive case the side of, that is, pertaining to; with the dative case by the side of, that is, near to.’ Lambanō (lam-ban’-o): ‘to take, to take with the hand, lay hold of, any person or thing in order to use it.’ Proslambanō (pros-lam-ban’-o), therefore, means: ‘to take to, take in addition, to take to one’s self; to take as one’s companion; to take by the hand in order to lead aside; to take or receive into one’s home, with the collateral idea of kindness; to receive, i.e. grant one access to one’s heart.’  The Greek for ‘received’ is not the subjective or passive dechomai (dekh’-om-ahee): ‘to have offered to one’; neither is it the violent aihreomai (hahee-reh’-om-ahee): ‘to seize’. The next word ‘stand’ is histēmi (his’-tay-mee): ‘Causal Tenses, to make to stand; to establish; to stand firm.’

                Spiritual acquittal and discharge takes place only when one is born again. To be born again, say, with all your heart, this simple prayer:

“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 that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”

Christianity Is Acquittal And Discharge From Sinful Gaol. [1]

Queen Esther: Portrait of a Christian: acquitted, discharged and very beautiful!

1)            The logicality of it will be too herculean to the intellectualism of a rational mind. Honestly, I will not be surprised if the rational intelligence stares at me to encourage me to await my journey into Alice’s Wonderland before assuming the phenomenality of a Christian’s acquittal and discharge from the erstwhile gaol of his sinful nature. It goes beyond scientific or mental ratiocinatio. It is a beneficent act of Divinity, flowing from His sacred heart of eternal clemency.

                Adam probably never knew of divine grace and that he could approach the LORD God from the stance of His river-flowing mercy, which explains his taking-off-fright that got them hiding, stupidly, behind the fig tree. And arrested by an egregiousness of mortification, Lucifer could not believe the continued existence of the pristine parents. They had sinned and should be cut off from terra firma. He remembered the Scripture that said, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” Why they still lived was too much of a mystery for his apprehension.

Jehovah, the preeminent fashion Designer clothed them in His righteousness (Genesis 3:21)

                It was understood when, after all said and done, this happened,Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them” [Genesis 3:21]. They who are guilty, and to whom justice demands hellish gaol of eternal punishment, death, that is, are here seen clothed: in divine righteousness. Unbelievable! That clothing was probationary. It was the temporary raiment of righteousness. How did God do it? The LORD God of creationism used His sovereignty to suspend Adamic death in hell. Adam was provided with an inexplicable second chance. The truth, Adam, is not because of you; it is on account of what the LORD God wanted to effectuate for Himself. The consummation of which will become a phenomenal glare when the LORD God will team up with this same Adamic nature –in the perfection of the hypostatic union—  to die the redemptive death on the cross of Golgotha.

                What do I mean by the phenomenality of this glare? It was not a supposedly discerning Jew –who had a walking experience with Jehovah— that voiced the asseveration; rather it was an unconcerned Gentile, an idol worshipping Roman soldier who saw what everybody saw, as well, and acknowledged, “Truly this man was the Son of God” [Mark 15:39]. This One on the condemned cross, and not the killed ones of Eden forgiveness, is the true Pascal Lamb. Amen. His death set in motion of the acquittal and the discharge of Christians from eternal damnation. Jesus takes all the glory and praise and the culminating latria. Does it not say, “For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen” [Romans 11:36].

The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit are one in thought, will, deed and might.

                If theological establishment makes, “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30) appropriately of Jesus, then, it is apropos to exegete that “of, through and to” Jesus are all things. Scriptural lucidity unveils the Christians’ Advocate. Every guilt finds its establishment in the legality of an extant decree. It takes an eternal Entity to stand in advocacy before the Eternal Judge of the celestial assizes. The eternal Father’s adjudication was the Christian’s acquittal of the committed evils of his sinful nature. Jesus, the eternal Advocate, made the incontestable scriptural veridicality of, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life” [John 5:24].

                An exegesis of this verse prompts me to start with the key word ‘believeth,’ the Greek of which is pisteuō (pist-yoo’-o): ‘1. Used in the NT of the conviction and trust to which a man is impelled by a certain inner and higher prerogative and law of soul. 2. To trust in Jesus or God as able to aid either in obtaining or in doing something: saving faith.’ Faith in the finished work of the cross is the only recipient’s requirement to obtain this empyrean grace of eternal consequence. Check out the verse, and contextually, and you will find no strings of moral rectitude attached to aid the consummation of this scriptural facticity.

Free from guilt of the Adamic sin is the Christian.

                It is quite interesting to note that the verbal ‘Shall’ and ‘come’ of John 5:24 are the same Greek erchomai (er’-khom-ahee) ‘to go or return.’ Understand the facts here: if the non-positive ‘not’ is ou (oo), meaning: ‘the absolute negative,’ then the eternal absolution of Christians from spiritual condemnation has a guarantee of Scripture. Coming to an understanding of ‘shall’ and ‘come’, what the LORD from heaven says in this verse is that, the one who believes in, and receives Jesus as Lord and Saviour “in returning will absolutely not return, ever, into condemnation.” Amen! ‘Condemnation’ is krisis (kree’-sis): ‘a separating, sundering, separation, trial, damnatory judgment’. ‘Passed’ is metabainō (met-ab-ah’-ee-no) ‘to pass over from one place to another.’ A very good definition of ‘life’, zōē (dzo-ay’) is: ‘of the absolute fulness of life, both essential and ethical, which belongs to God, and through him both to the hypostatic “logos” and to Christ in whom the “logos” put on human nature.’ The Christians have moved from the condemned, hellish gaol of the sinful nature to a justified state of life which the logicality of philosophy cannot explain: assuming an eternal life of the Almighty Creator Himself. Should this be a marvel in the eyes of beholders, it is because it happens to be the doing of the Divinity. Amen.

                Spiritual acquittal and discharge takes place only when one is born again. To be born again, say, with all your heart, this simple prayer:

“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 that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”

Year 2022

                Looking at the numerical figures involved in the new year 2022, my prophetic utterances, based on faith in Christ Jesus, the Divine Protocol, man has all the potentialities to overcome the perils of these end-time uncertainties.

                Most conspicuous is the prevalence of the number two of thrice feature. The first time this number – two – occurs in Scripture is in Genesis 1:16 “And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.” Two, undoubtedly is the Scriptural number for witness and of testimony. The sun and the moon were created by God to serve as convenience for the Man and the Woman of Eden, yet to be created. Adam would be a worker in the

Eden Garden of God, everything must, therefore, be put in place to enhance his productivity. Amen.

                To prove that the re-creationism was in favour of Adam the next ‘two’ has to do with the first couple of humanity. “And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed” [Genesis 2:25]. The number ‘two’ and the noun ‘both’ found respectively in Genesis 1:16 and 2:25 are the same Hebraic shenayim (shen-ah’-yim) meaning: ‘two (the cardinal number); both, double, twice.’

                If 10 stands for trials and temptations, you can be assured that 20 will spell double upheavals – we are in perilous times, no doubt.

                Next we have 22, the sum and multiple of which comes beautifully to four. Four is Scriptural number for creation. Did God create the seen and the unseen? Clearly it is understood that, the unseen is likely to send one to the dungeon of despondency. But the truth is that the LORD God is in firm control of things. The fact that Jehovah is the good God should put our minds to rest. Amen.

                In the midst of all these figures is the integer 0 (zero), which stands for nothing.

                Last of the 2022 analytical exegesis is the total of the positive numbers 2+2+2 equalling six. The number of twos is three; three is the perfect manifestation of the Godhead – meaning that God is very much involved in this 2022 matter. 6 is the number of Adamic estate. This is what the Scripture says on the day of Adamic creation, “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day” (Genesis 1:31). This happens to be the only time when God’s assessment of His daily creativities would receive the score of “very good”. God’s assessment of each of the days from the first to the fifth was “good”.

                In the midst of the turbulence that badger humanity these days: – with all the scary untruthfulness of Covid wahala (Yoruba term for ‘trouble’); of global Islamic jihadism; unstable governance (especially, that of Muhammad Buhari of Nigeria) and lies upon lies from global leadership, if you will be smart enough to put all your eggs in just one basket (as against the maxim of earthly disposition) of the faith in the LORD God, you will testify of the goodness of God in year 2022.

                Believe that God, as the Creator, has done all things well in the year 2022: in Genesis 1:31, His divine remark was, “very good”; in Mark 7:37 the people witnessed and testified concerning the Lord Jesus, “He hath done all things well” and the modifying ‘well’ is kalōs (kal-oce’) meaning: ‘beautifully, finely, excellently, well.’ In year 2022, for ashes, the LORD God has given you an adornment of beauty. Let me serve you with the accuracy and the profundity of this Isaiah 61:3. In the Hebrew the words of ‘beauty for ashes’ is pe’ēr tachath ‘êpher. The word ‘beauty’ is pe’êr (peh-ayr’): ‘head-dress, ornament, turban’. And ‘ashes’ is ‘êpher (ay’-fer): ‘ashes; worthlessness (figuratively); to bestrew’.

                When in mourning, the Jew scatters ashes over the head in depiction of despondent anguish. God has always done things in style. He will take away your poverty, replacing it with riches. Remove failure and in its place, it is a huge success. He is not about to stop doing things excellently stylish. The just shall live by faith. Approach 2022, ergo, looking unto Jesus, the Author and the Finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2) and you shall be singing, “Hallelujah” through every month of 2022.

                An Adamic being is properly a creation of the Almighty Jehovah. When God created Adam and his Woman, they were created in perfection. They were not in any need of anything good. We can relive that Eden fulfilled delectation. Faith says it is possible: for does God not ask, “Is any thing too hard for the LORD” (Genesis 18:14)? The noun ‘any thing’ is dâbâr (daw-baw’) meaning: ‘a word; by implication a matter (as spoken of) of thing; adverbially a cause.’ The adjectival ‘hard’ is pâlâ’ (paw-law’): ‘to be marvellous, be wonderful, be surpassing, be extraordinary, separate by distinguishing action.’ If you understand prophetic utterance, reach out into your heart of faith, believe that 2022 has been given to you to be fruitful, multiply, replenish and have the enablement to subdue the earth (Genesis 1:28) which the LORD has given to you (Psalm 115:16).

New year 2022 and old year 2021 on sandy beach with waves

                The enemy, Satan, the Devil, will try everything to put you on the failure list. Do not listen to him; he is the zero of 2022. Lucifer amounts to nothing if the LORD God remains your stability.

Believe it: that 2022 is a year of witnesses and testimonies that the LORD has created for man. Amen.

Happy New Year!

                To achieve a “very good” success this year 2022 and more importantly, to be God’s child, get born again by praying this simple prayer. 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 that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”


“Out of the mouths of babes….” [Psalm 8:2]

3)            True worship involves spiritual connectivity of marriage. When Adam married his wife in the Garden of Eden, it prefigured the marriage between the Lamb and the Church, the redeemed of the LORD God. God must enter into marriage with His deifier. The danger, therefore, inherent in worshipping any other deity –of idolatry— is that you get bound to Lucifer by the legality of spiritual marriage. This is one of the reasons why so many people will say to the hearing, “We have gone too far in this occultism, there is no going back.” They are made to believe the Satanism of having gone beyond redemption. What a lie of Satanism the ignorant man has continued to be fed with! Sad!

True worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth [John 4:23].

                The redemptive words of Jesus abound in Scripture. Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.‘Heavy laden’ is the Greek phortizo (for-tiy’-zō):1. (properly) to load up (a vessel or animal). 2. (figuratively) to overburden with ceremony (or spiritual anxiety).’ John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.The ‘whosoever’ includes any human person who desires salvation.

                John 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” Who is the ‘he that cometh’? Is he not any person who so desires? What does it imply when it says, “shall never thirst”? It means this salvation through Jesus cannot be lost. It is eternal. John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” Does this verse not remind one of Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool”? It does. And Jesus is saying in John 6:37, “I will in no wise cast out.” None is irredeemable. Hallelujah!

The Lamb of God is the Lion of Judah; HE is actually our High Priest in heaven.

                John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

                Genuine worship is strictly through Jesus. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them [John 10:8]. In this context, Jesus is talking to them as the Messiah. The Messiah’s office is strictly of the Divinity. Who came before Jesus? They are Krishna and the host of Hindu deities, Prophet Mani (of Manichaeism), Nimrod (the sun god) and Buddha. If those who came before His incarnation were thieves and robbers, what about Prophet Muhammad of Islam? Muhammad made an inference to his (Muhammad’s) messianic role saying, “When I see my Lord, I will fall down in Prostration and He will let me remain in that state as long as He wishes and then I will be addressed.’ (Muhammad!) Raise your head. Ask, and your request will be granted; say, and your saying will be listened to; intercede, and your intercession will be accepted.’ I will raise my head and praise Allah with a saying (i.e. invocation) He will teach me, and then I will intercede. He will fix a limit for me (to intercede for) whom I will admit into Paradise” found in Sahih al-Bukhari, Prophetic Commentary on the Qur’an (Tafseer of the Prophet (pbuh)) Book 65, Hadith 4516. Muhammad, by this asseveration, that he is going to be the intercessor and a one to retrieve people from hell, is a religious thief and a robber according to the words of Jesus Christ, the King of kings, and the Lord of lords.

Religion without Jesus Christ is prostitution [Revelation 17:5]

                Satanic inducement of careless religious affiliation is the bane of man’s religious vagrancy. Worship intrico has resulted in intrigues of a careful chicanery of Satanism. Man was made to worship the LORD, his creator. This is what Lucifer capitalizes on –man’s inherent thirst for the communion with his Maker. After the fall of Adam, God turned away from man. Sinfulness. Lucifer’s desideration happens to be the latria crave; every evil effort in his maniacal arsenal is an ominous direction towards the heart of the unwary soul that rejects the finished work of the substitutional death of the cross.

                In perfection of this worship intrico Satan, the Devil, got hold of the heart of Cain. After the antediluvian annihilation, Nimrod became a zealous, ready tool for the intrigues of Satanism. As the people dispersed globally, the Devil set up hundreds of thousands of religions with the wicked intention of religious entrapment.

Lucifer he knoweth that he hath but a short time

                Let us look at the eternal gulf of difference between the Good and the evil of Satanism. John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Satanism is absolutely an annihilative design. Lucifer is a destroyer of what he has neither the capacity nor the intention of regenerating. He is an egregious abominator, incorrigibly bent on carrying out his polluted ratiocinatio. Stealing, killing and destruction, which are the stock in trade of Satanism, and Lucifer’s manifesto happen to be elements of anti-life. What the worship of Jesus promises is abundance of ‘zoe’, God’s kind of eternal life of pure bliss.

Revelation 12:12, Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” Satan the Devil will never reveal to his religious victims that he knows that his deification is quite ephemeral. He is only looking for intelligent beings to accompany him to eternality of the bottomless gaol of hell. Be wise.

Revelation 4:8

                Get born again by saying this simple prayer.

“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 that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
