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.

LUCIFER’S DESIDERATION: God of gods (1)

8d4b5bc4cd050335c599e8795d37e501

Lucifer desires to be seated and worshipped as god of gods

He does not want to be the only culprit. He will push some others to consummate his nefarious plots. This is an act he has mastered over the billions of years of his unfortunate existence. Has he not blinded billions of his conscripted force? He has tamed yet millions to believe that his satanic being is but a nonexistent mirage, in the perfection of their spiritual gulag confinement. He has promoted lots of them to the status of deified worshipful masters. This makes Lucifer the god of gods.

d5aa7a5f2dd03a6967f56c5f087b334e

Could the above information be a fact?

If it looks like a huge joke of hilarity, it is simply because it is part of the wicked plot. To him it is a serious entrepreneurial venture with a mission to keep leering at God and His goodness. And I can promise you that Satan means a serious and apocalyptic business. Does it really surprise me how he could manoeuvre, probably, billions of holy angels to his evil side, even in the heavenly assizes of the rainbow administration of His Almighty Majesty? Not at all. How could Jehovah allow that, some will ask? The gullible spirits are the guilty ones. They did not check it out first with His Omnipotence before making a wrong use of their free moral agency. Everyone will stand separately before God to account for his deeds as a free moral agent.

hath-god-said

Lucifer failed to make an evil goddess of the first woman: Eve

He thrives in the game of mendacity. The truth is that he cannot do otherwise. The path of credibility leads only to goodness, where Jehovah reigns supreme. Goodness nauseates what Lucifer had constituted for himself. Ergo, he trekked himself into the realm of obliquity. “I will give you kingdoms.” “You will be gods to be worshipped!” The overwhelming potency of Lucifer’s temptation was too much for the, already derailed, credulous angels. To their annihilation they followed the fraud of Satanism. Amen!

fallen angel

An angel of Jude verse 6

Today they are spending an embarrassingly torturous existence in Tartarus. 2Peter 2:4,“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;” where ‘hell’ in the Greek is: tartaroō (tar-tar-o’-o) Thayer Definition:  ‘the name of the subterranean region, doleful and dark, regarded by the ancient Greeks as the abode of the wicked dead, where they suffer punishment for their evil deeds; it answers to Gehenna of the Jews; to thrust down to Tartarus, to hold captive in Tartarus.’ Strong’s Definition: From Τάρταρος Tartaros̄ ‘(the deepest abyss of Hades); to incarcerate in eternal torment.’

Demons: the dark angels of Satanism

Satan still boasts of dark angels. They are the demons. To know more about demons read my post, “Demonism” by clicking on this URL https://hoojewale.wordpress.com/2016/04/30/demonism-part-one … Satan has human minions as well. He could not perfect the exploitable stance offered by the first woman of Eden. Eve stuck to her husband to worship the true God. But Cain, on the other hand, donned a certain procacious toga. He was as brash and uncouth as his beastly, serpentine father. Cain and his descendants worshipped Lucifer. My post, “THE STAR AND THE CRESCENT,” with the URL, https://hoojewale.wordpress.com/2016/11/22/the-star-and-the-crescent-part-one … explains his satanic role. Demigods did present themselves in the likeness of the fallen angels and their offspring, the famous star giants.

king_nimrod023

Nimrod, after the great deluge, turned out to be the most reliably indefectible specimen for satanic deity. Through Nimrod Lucifer was able to catalyze his ambitious god-of-gods agenda. Nimrod, who worshipped Lucifer, was also worshipped as the Baal. Nimrod means ‘rebellion’ or ‘the valiant.’ Thus he qualified to be designated an Antichrist. Baal, a worshipped deity, means ‘lord, master, owner and husband.’ Whatever one worships becomes ones Baal (husband). Satan wants to own all who comes to him. Nimrod, who was the sun god made his wife, Semiramis, the moon goddess. Their son, Tammuz, by whom the Babylonian trinity was consummated, received worship as well, especially from the womenfolk, who would observe an annual traditional, ritual of prostitution to await his return (does that not point to Jesus?). Baal worship is still a universal phenomenon.

I AM GRATEFUL TO JEHOVAH (II)

 MY 61ST BIRTHDAY

       My son, Ogoluwa, an IT giant, designed this on my 61st birthday.

 (…continued from the 1st part)

The word ‘terror’ of Psalm 91:5, in the Hebrew, is pachad (pakh’-ad) and it means: ‘object of dread; a (sudden) alarm (properly the object feared, by implication the feeling).’ The Lord God delivered me from the torturous goal of Satan, his demons and his human agents. ‘Pestilence’ of the 6th verse, is deber (deh’-ber) which comes from [dâbar (daw-bar’): ‘to speak, declare, converse, command, promise, warn, threaten, sing] used (in the sense of destroying); a pestilence.’ I was wise enough to talk to Jesus, the express Word of God, for which reason the imprecatory resolve of the enemy could not bear any evil fruit upon my life. The power of Jesus made sure of that. ‘Walketh’ is hâlak (haw-lak’) ‘to walk (in a great variety of applications); lifestyle.’ The devil’s lifestyle is to move about in the surreptitious cloak of darkness. The light is of Jesus and my walk with Him has destroyed the ossified Jericho stand of Lucifer. ‘Destruction’ is qeṭeb (keh’-teb) meaning ‘to cut off; ruin.’ Knowing my divine mission on earth, his only preoccupation was to have my life severed at the tender age of fifteen, in the year of 1970.

2e655030ab69f99c3e6ac39e235eab74

‘Wasteth’ is shûd (shood) ‘to ruin, destroy, spoil, devastate.’ ‘Noonday’ is tsôhar (tso’-har) ‘a light (that is, window); dual double light, that is, noon; by extension happiness.’ The thing is: we do not see these satanic arsenal when they are sent flying ominously at us. God’s angels are always on guard; thwarting Satan’s incessant diabolical toils of enmity. Lucifer has done his worst to clothe me in a perpetual state of unhappiness. In a spate of two years about five years ago I had slumped four times. Look at me now, I am punching the keys on the laptop and the phone because I am alive and well to testify of the beneficence of the Most High. This is a rare opportunity: to speak on behalf of God! I must expose the nefarious ways and the failed deeds of the Devil: that I have told Satan. What can he do? Nothing! Is he not a failed and conquered foe in the name of Jesus? Selah!

images (1)

There are some times one sees things spawned by a psychological effect of ill health on the brain. Satan knows what nerves to tamper with to induce the worst cerebral form of terrorism. He could make you see twenty illusory venomous ophidian-meandering on the floor even as you wake up from sleep early in the morning! But the LORD God would not allow the evil intent to fructify, to the glory of His name. It is just the same way we do not see the destructive missiles of Psalm 91. The Lord has constantly thwarted the devil’s crazy intentions to turn us into raving lunatics. The LORD is good!

Psalms_34-19

Psalm 34:19 informs, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.” ‘Afflictions,’ in this verse, is raor râ‛âh (rah): ‘bad, evil (adjective), disagreeable, malignant [with an intent to cause misery].’ ‘Righteous,’ tsaddı̂yq (tsad-deek’), means: ‘just, lawful.’ For those who are minding their businesses lawfully, please, do not be deterred by these satanic braggadocios. Now, the word ‘delivereth’ is nâtsal (naw-tsal’) ‘to snatch away, whether in a good or a bad sense:’ and in this context, it is the Lord’s duty to remove satanic influence that is badgering your soul. The epithet ‘LORD’ is the Hebrew yehôvâh (yeh-ho-vaw’) BDB Definition: Jehovah = “the existing One.” Strong’s Definition: (the) self Existent or eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God.’ I believe now you know who is watching the backs of born again Christians. He does it always because the verb ‘delivereth’ is in the habitual tense: and herein lies my boasting confidence. The God I serve is the LORD, the One whose existence is by His own power! He is dateless, no beginning, no ending. He created all and controls all. Amen.

3d6a331acc62a7e38523db121f83b2f7--psalm---comment

God used the willing brain of Noah; the eager and enthusiastic thinking organs of Isaiah and David. He knows how readily I am to do everything about His Word. The enemy knows also what danger my continued existence spells for his usurped kingdom. He will be stupider than what I know of him if he should stand idly at akimbo watching me prospering unheeded. Jehovah has decreed to use my compliant understanding of Jesus. There is absolutely nothing he can do to veto God’s precept. For the very great things the good Lord has done, the medium size aids, the small ones and for the very tiny, inconsequentially looking things He has done, I am full of gratitude. Jesus is Lord! Amen!!

       FEAR NOT!!! SATAN IS A CONQUERED FOE!

 

 

 

 


OF TRIALS AND TROUBLES (5th part)

                                             20130327-110202

                                    Judas and his 30 pieces of silver

Judas means ‘praise’ (of Jehovah). In all our trials the Spirit of God is always there to encourage us to victory, only if we will acknowledge His presence with songs of praises. Did he not hear, “The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born” [Matthew 26:24]. He chose the trajectory of destructive failure for himself! Ask the rich man, from under whose table Lazarus used to pick crumbles, if he would have loved or expected a better treatment if he were to be in Lazarus’ shoes and Lazarus were to be him. We, each and every one of us, know what good thing should be done; the truth is we are so apathetic when it comes to the facilitation of the alleviation of the quandary fellow beings get entangled. This rich man is the architect of his after-life traumatic experience.

issue-of-blood

If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.

Woman with the issue of blood acknowledged the fact that she was faced with a problematic situation. Yes, she had been to too many places. Yes, she had spent all she had to professional and unconventional health practitioners to no avail. This woman with an unprecedented health issue was able to apprehend another possibility. “Yes”, she told herself, “it’s quite surmountable, this trial”. When all avenues prove abortive, there is yet the Jesus untapped solution. She heard of Jesus, we all do; it is just that we discountenance this one great solution to all problematic issues of earthly life. The woman said what only faith prods man to an eventual achievement, “For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole” [Matthew 9:21].

Trials are meant to prove who we truly are and what is achievable. She made a connectivity with the sinless, last Adam. This is the very first step in anyone’s quest to being an overcomer. When she came to Jesus she did not listen to discordant faithless input of the evil adversary. The Mosaic Law disallows a menstrous woman coming face to face with a man of God not to mention an audacious physical connectivity. Faith is an enabling tool that gets you the right words of doing business with the LORD God. I do not know how messy any trial can be, but I tell you, although I am not a female, it will be difficult to see a more harrowing disturbance to what this woman went through. 12 is the number of Jesus. The blood that issued from her represents the captivity of man’s sinful nature. None can save from the Satanic entrapment of sin save Jesus, the Author of life. Be wise, reach out to the Deliverer!

   Paul, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, comparing scripture with scripture (1Corinthians 2:13)

Whether you want to do good things or you are already on the path of righteousness, you will definitely face daunting challenges. You can remain undaunted like Paul of Tarsus, that great apostle, evangelist and Church planter of all time. Hear him in 2Corinthians 11:24-31. 24) “Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. 25) Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; 26) In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; 27) In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. 28) Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches. 29) Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not? 30) If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities. 31) The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not”. One day Paul, in his farewell message, wrote, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: v8) Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing” 2Timothy 4:7-8. The word ‘fought’, in the Greek is agōnizomai (ag-o-nid’-zom-ahee): ‘to struggle, literally (to compete for a prize), figuratively (to contend with an adversary), or generally (to endeavor to accomplish something)’. His fight was legally fought in that he said, “I have kept the faith”. Do things according to the word of God. You will succeed. Amen!

images_105

Was the Lord Jesus spared?

Jesus was not spared. He came to His own whom He had created, promised Abraham to protect, led from Egypt with great power. Even when your closest ones are against you, keep looking at Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2). The word ‘author’ is archēgos (ar-khay-gos’): ‘a chief leader’. And ‘finisher’ is: teleiōtēs (tel-i-o-tace’): ‘a completer, that is, consummater’. Jesus is your Chief Leader in every good deed. HE is the Completer of all the well intentioned struggles we encounter. This is why HE came to our world: to identify Himself with our trials and troubles. We are, for this reason, overcomers. Amen!

An Ambassador (For Christ or Lucifer) -5th part.

  step                                                                 Stepping out for Jesus: Ambassadorially.

 (Continued from the 4th part.)

  Lucis Trust (perhaps, in my view, her biggest contribution towards Satanism) was established in 1922 as Lucifer Trust by Alice Bailey as the publishing company to disseminate the books of Bailey and Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society. The Lucis Trust is the Publishing House which prints and disseminates United Nations material. It is a devastating indictment of the New Age and Pagan nature of the UN. The title page of Alice Bailey’s book, ‘Initiation, Human and Solar’ was originally printed in 1922, and clearly shows the publishing house as ‘Lucifer Publishing CoIn 1923.’ Bailey changed the name to Lucis Trust, because Lucifer Trust revealed the true nature of the New Age Movement too clearly. (Constance Cumbey, The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, p. 49). A quick trip to any New Age bookstore will reveal that many of the hard-core New Age books are published by Lucis Trust.

‘Great Invocation’ is a mantra given in 1937 by Bailey. The mantra begins with, “From the point of Light within the Mind of God, let light stream forth into the minds of men…” with the rest of the passage expressing the ideas of love, the return of Christ, and of men acting in accordance with the plan of God. It is well known by some followers of the New Age movement, where it is widely used, as part of meditation, particularly in groups. For instance, the invocation has been used in the Findhorn Foundation community since the 1970s. In response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the Great Invocation was used as a central element of a new daily program at Findhorn known as the “Network of Light meditations for peace”. Rosemary Keller described the Great Invocation as a call for “the Christ to return to Earth” and wrote that Bailey-related groups purchased radio and television time to broadcast the invocation as part of their mission, and that often the invocation was recited in what Keller called “light groups”, to accomplish what Bailey’s disciples considered to be attracting and focusing “spiritual energies to benefit the planet”.

                Alice Bailey’s writings have a theme that generally advocates replacement of the old with the new and this occurs in connection with the Great Invocation as follows: “This new Invocation, if given widespread distribution, can be to the new world religion what the Lord’s Prayer has been to Christianity and the 23rd Psalm has been to the spiritually minded Jew.” Criticism Researcher Hannah Newman described what she found to be an antisemitic element in the Great Invocation. According to Newman, “the Plan” named in the invocation refers to the plan authored by “the Hierarchy,” that Newman states places “high priority on removing all Jewish presence and influence from human consciousness, a goal to be achieved by eliminating Judaism.”

 

 

alice-bailey  Alice Bailey

 

Alice taught that young people should be given freedom to engage in premarital sex. “Let them have free sex, lift it so high that the joy of enjoying it (sex) is the highest joy in life, fantasize it, that everybody will feel proud to be seen to be sexually active, even those outside of marriage”. This is contrary to the word of God which says “… But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints….” (Ephesians 5:3-5)

*Use advertising industry, media – T.V., magazines, film industry to promote sexual enjoyment as the highest pleasure in humanity was her sermon. Pastor Ogbueli asked, “Have they succeeded? Have they done it? If you want to see whether they have succeeded or not, go to the advertising industry, it does everything to catch your attention and today almost no advert comes out without a sexual connotation. Even when they advertise ice cream, they must show you a thigh of a woman and a bikini, they must do something to set off a trail of thoughts. They will show you more thighs than ice cream. Why? Because, that is what must be in the minds of the people.

N.B. Advertising industry pops out so much money towards their advertisements to the T.V. and radio. Bailey asked for the building of clinics for abortion – Health clinics in schools. If people are going to enjoy the joy of sexual relationships, they need to be free of unnecessary fears, in other words they should not be hampered with unwanted pregnancies. ‘Abortion as told by Christians is oppressive and denies our rights, we have a right to choose whether we want to have a child or not. If a woman does not want the pregnancy, she should have the freedom to get rid of that pregnancy painless and as easy as possible’. Today it is not only accessible, it is forced. Today abortion is a strategy to curb population control together with the use of condoms and ‘pill’.

                Alice Bailey preached that sexual enjoyment is the highest pleasure in humanity, no one must be denied and no one must be restricted how to enjoy themselves. People should be allowed in whichever way they chose they want, whether it is homosexuality or in incest or bestiality, as long as the two agree. In the world today so many laws have been made that promote homosexuality and give so much freedom to gay rights, that a time will come when it is illegal for a preacher to mention homosexuality as an abomination in the eyes of God, or to read scriptures publicly that talk about homosexuality. At the International scene, Western nations now sanction African countries that have resisted homosexuality, with threats of withdrawing foreign aid and investments. Today many churches marry gays/lesbians and ordain gay priests. The protocol, corpus of Divine revelation i.e. the Bible, on gay issue clearly decrees, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination” in (Leviticus 18:22). It also states categorically, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them” (Leviticus 20:13).

You will do yourself a great service, having understood Pastor Ogbueli post, to ask yourself why God will choose a conflagrative mode of judgment upon two twin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. It was a calculated effort because God rained not only ‘fire’, the Hebrew word of which is esh (ay-sh), but also ‘brimstone’ gophrıyth (gof-reeth’): ‘cypress resin; by analogy sulphur (as equally inflammable)’. Good thing it is, to go panting after wisdom for an enabling meek spirit required to be a Pauline ambassador for Christ (2Corinthians 5:20). Joseph, with the words, “…because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?” [Genesis 39:9], refused the ambassadorial post of Satan in Egypt. His refusal made him an ambassador for Christ. Amen.

 

ambassador2                                                                                                       Come to Jesus

 

You can choose Jesus today (get born again) by saying this prayer, meaning it deep down from your heart: “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! (…to be concluded…)

DEMONISM (part five)

            

 

               

                               devil

(…continued from part four)

I see no reason why we should not be trenchant in dealing with issues of eternal consequences. The thing we should be asking ourselves is whether Jesus is the One giving the misleading information or the Qur’an. Who is lying here Jesus, Mohammed, Voodoo, Hindu, the Bible or the Qur’an? Is demonism an outright evil or not? We cannot pretend as if nothing evil is in dominance of humanity. In fact this is what Satan wants: ignorance; so that he will continue his subjugation of mankind. Billions are under Lucifer’s deceitful concoctions of to steal, kill and destroy. Every religion works hand in hand with demons in sacrificial offering (e.g. libation pouring and sprinkling of water) and worship. Let those who have seen the light not keep mute. Good Christians should create the expected awareness. Expose the works of darkness.

                                       image of demon                                              

 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” Ephesians 6:12. The word ‘wrestle’ is a term used in sport, which has to do with physical hand to hand and leg to leg combat. Paul is teaching that our (Christians) earthly combat is not a sporty fun, neither is it human to human. ‘Flesh’ is sarx, which is analogous to humanity, while ‘blood’ speaks of the source of earthly life; the original text actually has ‘blood and flesh’. The entities we come face to face with in spiritual wars are demons, all of them. ‘Principalities’, arche (ar-kay): ‘1. beginning, origin 2. the person or thing that commences, the first person or thing in a series, the leader’. These, folks, are the chief leaders of the beings on earth when Satan fell (Luke 10:18, Revelation 12:7-9). Demons probably looked hideous: for when Adam was about to be created it was a will to make this species to conform to the physiognomy (likeness) of and the spiritual disposition (image) of his Maker. Then there is the ‘powers’ exousia (ex-oo-see’-ah): ‘privilege, that is, (subjectively) force, capacity, competency, freedom, or (objectively) mastery (concretely magistrate, superhuman, potentate, token of control), delegated influence’, who are second in demonic command. Satan discusses his plans with principalities, who in turn vest a delegated authority to the Powers who then brief the ‘rulers’ i.e. kosmokratōr (kos-mok-rat’-ore) Thayer Definition: ‘lord of the world, prince of this age; the devil and his demons’. Strong’s Definition: From {kosmos -‘world system’- and krateō (krat-eh’-o) which from [kratos -force] ‘to use strength, that is, seize or retain (literally or figuratively)} kosmokratōr, therefore means: ‘a world ruler, an epithet of Satan’.

‘Darkness’, skotos (skot’-os) Thayer Definition: ‘of darkened eyesight or blindness metaphorically of ignorance respecting divine things and human duties, and the accompanying ungodliness and immorality, together with their consequent misery in hell; persons in whom darkness becomes visible and holds sway’. Strong’s Definition: ‘shadiness, that is, obscurity (literally or figuratively)’. Prevalence of idolatry has actually sent the very visible man into spiritual obscurity; and ‘world’, aiōn (ahee-ohn’) means: ‘the worlds, universe’. ‘Spiritual’, pneumatikos (pnyoo-mat-ik-os’) ‘non-carnal, that is, (humanly) ethereal (as opposed to gross), or (daemoniacally) a spirit (concretely), or (divinely) supernatural, regenerate, religious’. ‘Wickedness’, ponēria (pon-ay-ree’-ah) is: ‘depravity, that is, (specifically) malice; plural (concretely) plots, sins’. Demons, going by this rank, are wicked spirits embroiled in an insatiateness of wickedness, who continue to deceive their worshippers that they can be appeased by the sacrifices offered to them. How I pity those who think there is any good thing in demonism! The word ‘high’, epouranios (ep-oo-ran’-ee-os) is: ‘above the sky or heavenly’. Demons have their kingdoms and dwelling places in the sky. They are spirit beings, carrying no mass of any weight, therefore can inhabit the air. Spiritual human projections to their celestial abode enables the demons to strengthen their deceitful hold on initiated humans. Very difficult it is to prove this to those who are diabolically hooked!

Revelation 12:9, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him”. This verse is chronologically an event that occurred before Adam was created. Lucifer, most certainly, told them about how he merely asked God for what rightly belongs to him as the greatest angel. He showed them, I believe, the beautiful elements that went into his making. They could not hold their gasp for breath at the awe inspiring beauty that hit them. They decided to cast their lots with the lies of Satan. Doomed Satan, in his diabolic collaboration, led the beings of the earth and the fallen angelic host into perdition. He is the god of demonism of whom 1Peter 5:8 enjoins us to “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” with an uncanny support, so diabolical, from his demon allies.

(continued from part three)

A chapter, Ar-Rahman, is the 55th in the Qur’an. It reveals not only the paradise demonic participatory but of their conjugal bliss in heaven. Verses 72-74 read thus: 72 “Fair ones, close-guarded in pavilions. 73 Which is it, of the favours of your Lord, that ye deny? 74 Whom neither man nor jinni will have touched before them.” King Solomon is not spared of Mohammed’s Qur’anic demonism in An-Nami (27:17), “And there were gathered together unto Solomon his armies of the jinn and humankind, and of the birds, and they were set in battle order.”

What is the Bible’s answer to all these doctrines on demonism? Just in case anyone should throw tantrums in disagreement with the use of the Bible to settle this issue, it will be germane to intimate the reasoning faculty of the fact that the Bible is not only the first to document creationism, it still remains the only reliable Book that tells the story. Qur’an, which tends to come a little bit close, is 75% Bible and about 25% Islam; was put into documentation some eight hundred years after the ascension of Jesus. Like I always advise, “Why don’t we stick with the original documentation?” Is the ‘guardian spirit’ of voodoo any different from familiar spirits? This is what Leviticus 19:31 enjoins, “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God”. This word ‘regard’ in Hebrew, panah (paw-naw’), means: ‘to turn; by implication to face, that is, appear, look, etc.’ Why was Abraham told to leave his Ur nativity? Was it not because of the pollution that will poison his spirituality if he continued to fraternize with the demonic idolatry of his ancestry worship?

You cannot fraternize with demons without first being initiated into the occult. Demons are absolutely unserviceable! It was for this reason Jesus told the disciples to, “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils:” Matthew 10:8. The clause, ‘cast out’ is a violent act. It comes from ekballō (ek-bal’-lo): ‘to cast out, drive out, to send out -with notion of violence;’ which comes from two root words: ek or ex (ek) ‘out of, from, by, away from’; and ballō (bal’-lo): ‘to throw or let go of a thing without caring where it falls’. It is quite impossible to see how Qur’anic jinns will accept the gospel of salvation, not to mention evangelizing the same.

The doom of demons is eternally sealed, they are disembodied spirits who are bent on gaining entrance into humans in order to exercise their evil penchant. Hear the account of Matthew 8:29, “And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?” they know that they do not have the authority to be on earth because they lost it when the earth was squeezed and placed under water in the pre-Adamic era. Solomon, the king, would not have anything to do with them (as regarding demonic aid in warfare). What is more, King Solomon never fought a single war all of his forty years of reign, so, where did Mohammed get the gist of Solomon’s enlisting of demon soldiers? Demons know they have no place with God and James 2:19, “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble”, is the proof.

“But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: 36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.” These are the words of the Lord Jesus in Luke 20:35 & 36. The good reason why the testimony of Jesus is most acceptable is in John 3:13, And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, [even] the Son of man which is in heaven”. Jesus also said, Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” Matthew 24:35. There is no doubt in my mind that the Bible of Christians is not on the same spiritual page with the Islamic Qur’an, going by these scriptural differences on marriage.

DEMONISM (part three)

hybrid

In the Old Testament, ‘devils’ (demons) appear four times. In Leviticus 17:7 & 2Chronicles 11:15 it is called śa‛ıyr (saw-eer’) BDB Definition: 1. hairy (adjective) 2. he-goat, buck (noun masculine) a. as sacrificial animal b. satyr, may refer to a demon possessed goat like the swine of Gadara (Mat 8:30-32). Strong’s Definition: ‘shaggy; as noun, a he goat; by analogy a faun’. Deuteronomy 32:17 & Psalm 106:37 has shed (shade) ‘a daemon (as malignant)’. From the first definition there could be a likelihood of demons having the appearance of satyr, faun or ape; and they should be very intelligent beings indeed. In the New Testament, daimonion (dahee-mon’-ee-on) Thayer Definition: ‘1. the divine power, deity, divinity 2. a spirit, a being inferior to God, superior to men 3. evil spirits or the messengers and ministers of the devil’; Strong’s Definition: ‘a daemonic being; by extension a deity’ (Matt 7:22 & Lk 8:33); and daimōn (dah’-ee-mown) Thayer Definition: 1. a god, a goddess a. an inferior deity, whether good or bad 2. in the NT, an evil spirit’, which comes from δαίω daiō ‘(to distribute fortunes); a demon or super natural spirit (of a bad nature) (found in Mark 5:12 & Rev 16:14)’ are the two Greek words for demon. Jesus never had anything to do with them, “and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial?” (2 Corinthians 6:14-15). Hear Jesus in Matthew 26:53, “Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?” He explained also in Matthew 25:41, “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels”. The Devil would not dare insinuate a falsehood of demonism in Matthew 4:6, “And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone”. Jesus dealt with the demons as we have in Luke 8:30, “And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him”. They are foul spirits in Mark 9:25 & Rev 18:2. ‘Foul’ is akathartos (ak-ath’-ar-tos) ‘impure (ceremonially, morally (lewd) or specifically (demonic))’. They are also called ‘familiar spirits’: ‘ob (obe) ‘(apparently through the idea of prattling a father’s name); properly a mumble, that is, a water skin (from its hollow sound); hence a necromancer (ventriloquist, as from a jar)’.

Spiritists and seers who do not receive the oracular afflatus through the Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus, are actively working for Satan. They are in league with familiar spirits whose attachment to each clan is an assignment of satanic operation. They can trace your family lineage to Adam easily. Voodooism, according to Collins Dictionary, is a religious cult involving witchcraft and communication by trance with ancestors and animistic deities, common in Haiti and other Caribbean islands. It is ultimately of West African origin; it speaks of guardian spirit, without which there is no voodoo. Hinduism teaches that the Devil is still God’s angel, running messages for the Most High -insinuating a certain rapport between God and Lucifer. Satanic prominence of Hindu religion makes an obvious case for demonic rampancy.

Not unlike all religions, Islamic Qur’an teaches the existence of evil and good demons. In fact the Qur’an has a whole chapter for demons and aptly called Al-Jinn (Arabic word for demon is jinn). Qur’an 72:1 reads, “Say (O Muhammad): It is revealed unto me that a company of the Jinn gave ear, and they said: Lo! we have heard a marvellous Qur’an,” and the 14th verse says: “And there are among us some who have surrendered (to Allah) and there are among us some who are unjust. And whoso hath surrendered to Allah, such have taken the right path purposefully”. In the 46th chapter, called An-Ahqaf, in verse 29 Prophet Mohammad proclaimed from Allah, “And when We inclined toward thee (Muhammad) certain of the jinn, who wished to hear the Qur’an and, when they were in its presence, said: Give ear! and, when it was finished, turned back to their people, warning”; which implies that demons preached to convert in the name of Allah to other demons. …to be continued

DEMONISM (part two)

Isaiah 45:18 reveals, “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else”. The word ‘vain’ is the same tohu as ‘without form’ explained above. The earth which was quite habitable in verse one did not have Adam as its occupant. Right? Prophet Isaiah was inspired to write that nations of people did occupy this terra firma.

I hope it is getting clearer. Now you may ask, “Where are these people in verse two”? Having succeeded in weakening and polluting them spiritually, God arrested, judged them and the sentence saw their incarceration in the darkness of the tohu bohu together with their evil angelic counterparts of rebellion and of course their god, Satan. Adam only came into existence in Genesis 1:26. Prior to this in verse three we see the Light, the manifestation of the Christ (John 1:1-14… “That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world”, verse 9), the Creator, at re-creationism. The Light of Genesis 1:3 gave them a temporary respite. Those earthly beings were invisible for they had been disembodied, made unfit to dwell on terra firma. This is the origin of demons.

Was there any time in the history of man when there was no man on earth? None! So, how come Jeremiah 4:23-25 intimates us with, “I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. 24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. 25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled”? Jeremiah was made to see God’s judgment on beings of pre-Adamic era. The Bible does not give a description of their physiognomy but maybe the definition of a scriptural demon will make an attempt.

demon

The word ‘demon(s)’ is not in King James Bible (translators’ error), it renders it devil or devils. The truth is that there is only one devil and that is Satan, hence, you cannot have devils because Satan can only be in one particular place at a time. Only God is omnipresent. The first time a demonic spirit is mentioned in the Bible is in: Leviticus 17:7, “And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations”. To most of Christians demons are the same as the angels who fell along with Satan from heaven. The Bible records in Genesis 6:2 that, “…the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose”. These are the fallen angels -sons in the sense that they were created individually confer Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7 & Luke 3:38. They cannot be the sons of Seth (a doctrinal error) for the simple fact that Seth was not a ‘son of God’ as his father, Adam was based on the fact that Adam was created personally by God’s hands just like the angels. Seth was Adam’s son. If they (fallen angels) are not the demons then where are they? The answer is simply found in 2Peter 2:4, “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment”. Jesus did go down at death to preach as we find in 1Peter 3:18-20. Verse 19 reads “By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison”. 2Peter 2:4 buttresses Jude 1:6 which reads, “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day”. The word ‘hell’ in 2Peter 2:4 translates tartaroō (tar-tar-o’-o) ‘From Τάρταρος Tartaros̄ (the deepest abyss of Hades); to incarcerate in eternal torment’. A lot of commentaries say that those in Tartaros̄ are some of the fallen angels, hence, leaving the demons to be some of those angels. But, is this what the Bible teaches? 2Peter 2:4 clearly teaches: “For if God spared not the angels that sinned”; and Jude 1:6 reads, “And the angels which kept not their first estate…”. If you do recall, Genesis 6 does not, in any way, imply “‘some’ of the sons of God”. All the rebellious one-third of the celestial angels are in tartaroō. This leaves the beings of pre-Adamic age as the demons.
