Lucifer’s Smoothness of Shenanigan (5)

Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil” [Matthew 4:1].

(…continues from part four…)

5)            The Devil came again with the tempting words of, “If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread” [Matthew 4:3]. No doubt, Lucifer knew the beginning of Jesus’ humanity. But he wanted to play with words. He, most definitely, had the knowledge of the divine Sonship of Jesus. Why ask to know of the obvious truth? Temptations come out of taboo laden acts. Again, it sounds quite anodynous, but the unseen priestcraft of Satanism employment is that if Jesus had gone ahead and performed this miraculous feat, it would have been at the behest of Satanism and the Lord Jesus would have operated under the influence of Lucifer, as the god of this sinful world. Jesus would have pleased the enemy of His Father.

Command that these stones be made bread

                Imagine Jesus pleasing not the Father, of whom the Scripture had earlier made the asseverative pronouncement of “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” [Matthew 3:17]. And the Word of God opened His holy mouth and spoke the Scripture proceeding from Himself, quoting the very words of His dictation to the ears of Moses, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” [Matthew 4:4; Deuteronomy 8:3]. This is what the Eden occupants should have uttered to destroy the Devil’s prevaricating utterance.

                The Devil is goaty in stubbornness. He just would not stop and this time he, “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” [Matthew 4:6]. Who says “The Devil knows not the Bible”? He studies the Bible very well, and from the same protocol of the Divinity he makes sure to tempt people with God’s forbidden acts. The intriguing fact here is that, the choice of ‘cast’ and ‘down’ are: ballo, ‘violent throw’ and kato, ‘downwards’ respectively. Why tell the Last Adam to cast Himself down atop the place of congregational latria? If Jesus had done that, HE would have killed His humanity before the Calvary substitutionary death – massive loss to the Divinity.

If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down [Matthew 4:6]

                Lucifer’s desideration is the latria crave. All this hullabaloo is nothing short of his diabolical hunger for apotheosis; he could not help being his maniacal self, as he told Jesus, “All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me” (Matthew 4:9). This is a bodacious attempt. It demands a righteous indignation. “Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Matthew 4:10). The very second the masquerading serpentine shenanigan called God a liar, the woman should have skinned Lucifer of the ophidian meander that crawled into the Eden Garden. What Adam and his wife would not do is what Jesus, on behalf of humanity, brought to consummation. Amen.

                Some questions arising from this bodacious effrontery are: Does Lucifer not know that Jesus is the Son of God? Does he not have the knowledge of the Second Membership of Jesus’ Godhood? Does he not know that in this Jesus is the Eternal Christ, the Creator? Why would he decide to tempt his Lord even the Author of creation, and stubbornly so? Did he not see John the Baptist wanting, in the humility of his heart, to decline to baptize the same LORD from heaven? I know why he was able to muster such feat fit for a bodacious bestiality. Lucifer is an egregiousness of profanity; he is suffering from acute dementia; his madness knows no bounds.

Then the devil leaveth him [Matthew 4:11]

                Anyone who decides to go against the good LORD God of the celestial assizes and will come face to face with the Lord of creationism in antagonism cannot be anything but an incorrigible evil. Egregious stupidity must be the mark of any being that intentionally cuts himself away from Jehovah. No wonder, unlike the heaven-bound, adopted Christians, Lucifer is eternally damned!

                The Calvary victory breaks and it makes of non-effect the pricking discomfort of his goad. What does that mean? If sinfulness is the sting, then the ‘entire gulp’ of death is the victory that Jesus gives to anyone who becomes one with Him, having removed the original sin from him. He would not come to the earth to be crucified the second time, therefore, this separation from sin is eternal. We, the Christians can never be called or considered sinners again. The hellish thrust, Lucifer’s victory, that mankind had suffered, does not hold any victimisation for Christians. We have been saved from death. Lucifer’s trophies do not include Christians. Willfully we had sinned, in the past, and were responsible for the evils of our thirsty crave. But now our salvation is wholly of the Godhead. The Godhead takes care of everything. Get born again so that you too can say, “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” Amen.

“…that where I am, there ye may be also” [John 14:3].

                Jesus gave us a promise in the book of John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” This, the Devil has no power, whatsoever, over. It is a divine promise. For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed [Malachi 3:6]. Lucifer did not know that the Church was God’s trump card to silence him into eternality of his guilt. God gave him a mind to think with. He thought he could use the thoughts of his derailed mentality to bring himself to Jehovah’s par of equality. God gave him a freewill and erroneously believed his freewill has the capability to discard the Creator, and be a god unto himself and to any thinking intelligence that will decide to follow him. Woefully, Lucifer has failed. Amen.

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!”

OPPORTUNITY: DOES IT KNOCK ONLY ONCE? [2]

(…continues from part one…)

2)            There are dangerous resultant effects to believing that opportunity knocks only once. It weakens faith; kills hope; wans one’s love for the saving Word of God: all of which emanate from Satanism. How does it weaken faith? It is understood, scripturally, that God holds everything together, Colossians 1:17 “And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” If opportunity knocks but once, why should I pray to God when one door closes? Faith says that when one door closes, God opens another to the glory of His name. Firm belief in this maxim does not only depreciate the faith in God’s Word, it deprecates the hope of receiving from the Providence. Believing this untruthfulness slams one into egregious hopelessness. One’s love for the word of God gets waned, when an unscriptural belief infiltrates God’s protocol.

Waiting upon God gives another opportunity

Does the Bible not expressly enjoin believers, “Pray without ceasing” [1Thessalonians 5:17]? God is constantly looking into your heart when you cease not to pray and not tired of doing so. Why? He is doing so to ascertain the fact that you are operating in firm faith.

Cornelius did not do what was required of him just once. He kept on doing it and one day it was told of him, “Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God” [Acts 10:31]. Did Jesus allow the Bethsaida blind man to be resigned to his half deliverance fate? Jesus asked him how well he could see and the man’s response in Mark 8:24 was, “And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.” A second touch of a chance was required. Opportunity knocks once mind-set does vilipend the prerequisite faith by which a man receives from God. It tells you not to expect more from Providence. Jesus made a second chance touch, and the blind man could then sing, “I can see clearly now!”

“And he said unto the king of Israel, Smite upon the ground”

One very good reason I can give for the failure of King Joash is that he had, over the years, been ill affected by a contrary view that erected a certain spirit of vilipendency for the word of God. Prophet Elisha’s nearing death situation cannot be seen as the only opportunity left for this king of Israel. Something had contaminated his faith to the Jehovah God of Israel. 2Kings 13:18-19 “And he said, Take the arrows. And he took them. And he said unto the king of Israel, Smite upon the ground. And he smote thrice, and stayed. 19) And the man of God was wroth with him, and said, Thou shouldest have smitten five or six times; then hadst thou smitten Syria till thou hadst consumed it: whereas now thou shalt smite Syria but thrice.

Elisha said, Shoot!”

There is no written code of legality that specifies the number of times arrows should be shot to gain spiritual superiority over an enemy nation. It is quite understandable that when one allows an apothegm which is foreign to the instructions of the Most High, the ensuing spiritual contamination becomes a stumbling block, separating you from the protection of the Divinity. King Joash had had his mind tampered with idolatrous initiations, causing him to lose spiritual connection with the God of Israel. His wanning state of faith reared its ugly head and he could not defeat his Syrian army for as long as he should.

Satanically designed to chicane your mentality into disbelieving God’s salubrious instructions is the veridical pointer to the entrenchment of unchristian apothegm. God’s laws are instructions designed to enhance the salubrity not only to one’s physical health, but your mental and spiritual well-being. Scrutinize every wise sayings of human understanding. It may be a trap intended to slow your walk with the Lord down.

Praying the sinner’s prayer as it is contained in Romans 10: 8-10 is the prayer of salvation that gets one born again. This settles the spiritual quarrel man has with God. To get born again, say this prayer, with all 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 for my sins. I believe that You raised Jesus Christ from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord. Today, I receive Jesus Christ as my Lord and my Saviour and I give God all the glory. Amen.

DELAY IS NOT DENIAL (two)

Blessed Abraham and Sarah –proud parents of Isaac.

(…continued from part one…)

2)      In the book of Genesis 18:14 the Hebrew word dâbâr (daw-baw’) is the biblical rendition of ‘any thing’, which is not an inference to the objectivity of kinetic parameters of activities per se. It comes from its root dâbar (daw-bar’): ‘to arrange; used figuratively (of words) to speak; speech, word, speaking, thing.’ The definition of ‘any thing’, in this Scripture is: ‘speech, saying, utterance.’ It is of a matter arising from an engenderment of God’s verbal decree.

                I can hear Abraham saying, almost without a syllabic twitch of his lips, “Promises and promises, yet no child!” It was easy for Sarah to do her behind the scenes giggles. “Good food has a way of making people play the role of the Divinity,” Sarah concluded. God could not be deterred, thank heavens. Jehovah was at His gentlemanly disposition as He made the epical query, “Is any thing too hard for the LORD?” And for the record, “At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life….” So that it would be of man’s testimony concerning the beneficence of the LORD God that, “He did say so!”

                Genesis 21:1-7, 1) “And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken. 2) For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. 3) And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac. 4) And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had commanded him. 5) And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. 6) And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. 7) And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age.”

                The word ‘spoken’ in the first verse is dâbar (daw-bar’): ‘to arrange; used figuratively (of words) to speak; speech, word, speaking, thing.’ It is very important to note that the words ‘any thing’ of Genesis 18:14 and ‘spoken’ of Genesis 21:1 mean the same thing. Our business is to look into the Scriptures; get a word that answers our predicament; bind securely our faith to it; and God has just given you the desire of your heart.

      Forsooth, delay is not denial!

      Be wise not to drop your guard of faith. Can you afford to disappoint the LORD God? Selah!

“…but Hannah had no children” 1Samuel 1:2.

                1Samuel 1:1-7, “Now there was a certain man of Ramathaimzophim, of mount Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephrathite: 2) And he had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah: and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children. 3) And this man went up out of his city yearly to worship and to sacrifice unto the LORD of hosts in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the LORD, were there. 4) And when the time was that Elkanah offered, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions: 5) But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb. 6) And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the LORD had shut up her womb. 7) And as he did so year by year, when she went up to the house of the LORD, so she provoked her; therefore she wept, and did not eat.

                Elkanah is the Hebraic elqânâh (el-kaw-naw’) meaning: ‘God has possessed or created.’ Why Elkanah chose to marry a second wife could not be a good excuse. The Bible says that it was God who shut his wife’s womb; it was not Hannah’s fault. Hannah means ‘grace’ which tells me that she is a type of a Christian, highly favoured to the glory of Jesus Christ.

Delay, dear, faithful Hannah, is not an empyreal denial.

                Problems are meant to bring one out as gold. God wanted to lift that family of Elkanah up in a game of glory. Elkanah, the man of the home, chickened out. The kitchen became unbearably hot for his liking. If not for anything, the name of his place of abode was enough to make him believe that God would give him the fruits of the womb through none else other than Hannah, his beloved wife. The Hebrew, râmâthayim tsôphı̂ym (raw-maw-thah’-yim tso-feem’) means: “double height of the watchers”. Should this duality not double-strengthen his faith, from which it becomes a possibility to draw delight in the LORD, of whom no spoken word becomes a wonderment of an impossibility to execute?’ The world would have called him the name of unfruitfulness for just the same uncomfortable period of time his wife, Hannah, endured it. If you know the God of the Bible the way you should, you will understand that the more prayer time you spend with Him, the stronger your faith will continue to grow.

                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!”

NIGERIA, LIKE ISRAEL, IS GOD’S CLIENT NATION [2]

Messianic Judaism

Jesus is the Governor of nations [Ps. 22:28; Rev. 11:15].

2)            Could jihadism be an institution of Jehovah God? It is the core of Islamic expansion. Jihadism is the evangelical machinery of Mohammedan Islam. Jihadism is pure terrorism. It cannot be the way of the Divinity. This is how the soteriological expansion is biblically instituted; Mark 16:15 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Another Scripture documents, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19) Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20) Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” [Matthew 28:18-20].

Shekau, Boko Haram leader

                This is one of the jihadic understandings of the Qur’an, found in the hadith of Sunan Abu Dawood, Jihad (Kitab Al-Jihad) Book 15, Hadith 56. “Narrated ‘Anas ibn Malik: The Prophet (pbuh) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.”

                It is understood that there is no way jihad will not spill blood. Which of these two revelations Matthew 28:18-20 together with Mark 16:15 on one hand, and Book 15, hadith 56 of Sunan Abu Dawood on Jihad exudes peace, especially, in the biblical peace of Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”? Let us not forget that the Antichrist is not yet here, therefore Islamic jihad is still legitimate these days, according to quranic prophecy.

Grandfather of Nigerian Fulani jihadism

                For more than a decade since ‘Boko Haram’ of Mohammedan jihadism began to terrorise Nigeria, the government of President Muhammadu Buhari has never declared the obnoxious activities of Boko Haram as a terrorist one –not even for once. They have not only pillaged but sacked villages; vandalized agricultural farmlands; kidnapped for ransom running into about a trillion naira; raped the girls and wives of communities; abducted children, wives and daughters; broken into schools to abduct defenceless students; set up unconstitutional parallel Local Government Councils; levied taxes and continue to threaten, terrorise with impunity. Buhari has never, for once, seen them for what they are: TERRORISTS! Boko Haram was once named the third worst terrorist group, internationally. Buhari said nothing.

                Under the governance of President Muhammadu Buhari, it is incessantly becoming a crime to ventilate a political inconvenience. The Fulani is President Buhari’s large puss-filled boil under his armpit, so, when you poke at any Fulani atrocity, you have needled his nursing inflammation! The man hates criticisms against his government. Should it be difficult, for these reasons, to view President Buhari, a Fulani man, an accomplice to these Fulani atrocities? Muhammadu Buhari has forgotten that he presides over the nation of Nigeria as a minister of Jehovah, the true Governor of nations [Psalm 22:28].

Sheik Ahmed Gumi

                A former military officer, now an Islamic teacher, Sheik Ahmed Gumi, has severally fronted for the AK-47 wielding Fulani herding terrorists. These cattle herders will lead their animals into private farmlands and feed them with the crops of farms they never cultivated. Any attempt to question their evil plundering propensity has always received the replies from their murderous, heavy AK-47 bullets. Massacre. Today, foodstuffs have gone the way of skyrocketing all because farmers are afraid to do what they know best: farm the rich land –of Nigeria. Sheik Gumi is asking that the government should pardon the Boko Haram terrorists, who, according to him, became marauding jihadists because they had become impoverished. Gumi said, “They are ready to lay down arms for amnesty”. Gumi knows their hideouts. The government would not lift a finger to root them out! Gumi was asked, “Should you not be arrested for fronting for the payments for the cattle herders’ ransom?” You want to know his unabashed answer? “Who will do that, do the government people not attend the meetings –of how much they want as ransom— with me?” So, Gumi and the presidency are the ones enriching the evil business of Fulani cattle herders.

Samuel Ladoke Akintola

                It is crystal clear that Buhari’s government is following the Ahmadu Bello’s script of their great grandfather of jihadism, Othman Dan Fodio. Their deliberate acts are inhibiting the spread of the gospel of our Lord Jesus. Christians of the northern parts of Nigeria attend church services at their own peril. Safety is now the most essential commodity. The government of Buhari knows what to do. For reasons of former President Obasanjo’s coinage: Fulanisation (i.e. wanting to turn Nigeria into a Fulani State a la Islam), the president will not do anything, but, will maintain the status quo. The One whose client is Nigeria will ‘neither sleep nor slumber’ [Psalm 121:4]. Amen.

Sunday Igboho

                A Yoruba man, popularly called Sunday Igboho has been agitating for Yoruba –of the West— split from Nigeria since the North is bent on throwing the southern Nigerians into political slavery. Another man of the Igbo stock, Nnamdi Kanu is doing everything to aid an Eastern secession from Nigeria. Buhari did not find it difficult to get these individuals arrested. Buhari branded Sunday and Nnamdi, his Eastern counterpart, terrorists. The question is: if Boko Haram that has killed hundreds of thousands, forced schools’ close down, made the Northern States terribly ungovernable –including his, the President’s home State, Katsina State—, is allowed to continue these Satanism, but Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu must be clamped down, where is equity? Leah Sharibu is still in their custody! Gumi is walking freely, a Boko Haram hero.

                Muhammadu Buhari is psychologically or pathologically troubled by the existence of Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho who are of the Eastern and Western parts of Nigeria respectively; but is it not mind troubling that the annihilating drive of Boko Haram and the cruelty of Fulani cattle herders give the president sweet, daily sleep. Jihadism is at work. Granted that Sunday Igboho and, especially, Nnamdi Kanu do get overboard in their activities, how come the nefarious deeds of the Fulani herders receive not the heavy hands of the government of Buhari?

                The charge against Sunday Igboho is that of arms stockpiling: probably to topple Buhari’s government.

Chief Obafemi Awolowo

                Chief Obafemi Awolowo, the first Premier of Western Region, was arrested for the same treasonable offence (in the ‘60’s), the arms were widely believed to have been falsely buried close to Chief Awolowo’s property to implicate him in order to get him out of the way. Chief Obafemi Awolowo bagged a ten-year jail term. What happened? While in jail, the military, led by Major Nzeogwu, struck. What did they do? The coupists killed all those they considered big politicians. The Prime Minister, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, the de facto leader of the ruling political party, Ahmadu Bello, Finance Minister, Festus Okotie-Eboh and the Western Region Premier, Samuel Ladoke Akintola among eleven others were assassinated. Widely believed was the fact that if Awolowo was not serving the jail term, he would have been shot dead too!

Major Nzeogwu

                Of recent, the members of Muhammadu Buhari led APC (All Progressive Congress) governing political party, believe that the opposition party PDP (People’s Democratic Party), is wrong in saying that insecurity has bedeviled the country like never before now. APC’s stand against the phenomenal reality is a deliberate obfuscation. Truth is meant to illuminate minds constructively and progressively. Any man who resorts to tergiversation is an apostle of sheer cruelty. A truth hiding individual is a promoter of Satanism. Buhari has every buck of these atrocities stopping at his presidential desk. Buhari is guilty! Muhammadu Buhari, if you had done the right thing, no Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho or the likes of Nnamdi Kanu would dream of seceding from Nigeria –a land flowing with milk and honey! If Nebuchadnezzar could change, so can Buhari.  

                The absolute truth here is that the Lord God, the Governor of the nations, has begun to walk through Nigeria. So, I say to the Most High, concerning Nigeria, my beloved country, “Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee” [Numbers 10:35]. Amen!

SOTERIOLOGY MINUS JESUS [IV]

(…continued from part three…)
IV) A conscious belief effort, on the part of an individual, in Christ, is never a mere act. It is a pleasing act of faith expended, based on the will of the Creator which magnetises a divine reward of eternal consequence. That person gets endowed with God’s very life of eternity. Minus Jesus, salvific actuation of empyreal ascendancy is unequivocally infeasible. The word ‘abideth’ is meno (me’-nō): ‘1. to remain. 2. (in a place) to abide, to stay. 3. (of expectancy) to await. 4. (in a state) to continue. 5. (in a task) to endure. 6. (of a relationship) to exist permanently in, inseparably united (inhere, adhere).’ This is the reason why people will go to hell (uncomfortable to my mind though) for all eternity: their rejection of the finished work of Jesus, on the cross. The truth is: when we get to heaven, we will know why.

“Which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”

Pauline Christological exegesis is quite unambiguous in 1Corinthians 3:11, “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” The word ‘foundation’ is themelios (the-me’-liy-os): ‘something put down, i.e. a substructure (of a building, etc.).’ Does this verse not veto the Mohammedan, Hindu, Buddhistic and other aboriginal religions of the world for failing to accept the Lordship of Jesus Christ? It says, categorically, “For other foundation can no man lay;” simply because the antecedently laid foundation is the Owner of all that is found in existence, and the Creator of all. He is the Almighty. Jesus is ‘which is, and which was, and which is to come.’ Does the Bible not say, “He is before all things” [Colossians 1:17]; and does the Lord Jesus not asseverate, “I am the Alpha and the Omega……the Almighty” [Rev. 1:8]?

“…for without me ye can do nothing” John 15:5

1Timothy 2:5-6 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6) Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” There is not more than one God –the Father of lights— and the interceding Personage between this one God and mankind is not more than one Jesus Christ. Mesites (me-siy’-tees) is the Greek word for ‘mediator’ and it is: ‘1. a go-between. 2. (simply) a spokesman. 3. (by implication) a reconciler (intercessor);’ while ‘ransom,’ is antilutron (an-tiy’-lï-tron), meaning: ‘a redemption-price, ransom.’ Having paid the price of man’s salvation in full, no other person can claim to possess a religious solution to man’s ascension to paradisiac bliss. To this end it was so important for Jesus to pronounce in John 10:8 “All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.” Most definitely, all those who came after His earthly sojourn, and reject the Lordship of Jesus are thieves and robbers of the souls of men.

”Abide in me, and I in you” John 15:4.

1John 5:11-12 11 “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12) He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” God has given us a ‘record’ which in Greek is marturia (mar-tï-riy’-a) meaning: ‘evidence given (judicially or genitive case).’ The spiritual location of our eternal life is hid in none other than the Lord Jesus! Amen. In none other is the life of God resident. Only Jesus can save, most evidently.
Revelation 7:9-10 “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10) And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.” When you find yourself in heaven, the truth of Jesus’ Lordship is too glaring; there is no deception, ergo, everyone is happy to worship Him in truth. The celestial reverential stance of all its inhabitants is before God the Father and of the Son. That makes Jesus as divine as the Father. Equality.

He is in custody of the Book of Life

Revelation 20:15, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” The ones who refuse to get born again do not have any part in Jesus, ergo, not members of the mystical body of Christ. There is security of this salvation. Revelation 3:5, “He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.” Herein lies the veracity of the security of the soteriology; Jesus says, “and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father…” Truly, only Jesus can save.

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!”

SOTERIOLOGY MINUS JESUS [I]

Jesus is the Author of soteriology

I) The kernel of soteriology finds seminality in the kerygma. The soteriology, solely an establishment of the Divinity, finds the solidity of its foundation in the kerygma, such that as the proclamation of the truth gets trumpeted, it uncovers the apocalypse of the mind and act of the Lord God, the Almighty. What is the definition of soteriology? It is: “The branch of Christian theology that deals with salvation as the effect of a divine agency.” Soteriology is solely a preserve of Jehovah’s workability.
The facticity of baraminology fingers an irrevocability of creationism. In the hands of the Adamic blunder, baraminic haecceity suffered a defeat, causing the baramic Designer to a further establishment of the soteriological reality, aimed at the redemption of the lost souls of Adam that would walk the humble path of the parabolic son of prodigence. Is the Christ the divine Author of creationism? He must of necessity be the One and the only Founder of the salvific Providence: for, forsooth, Jesus Christ is the Creator of all things –visible and invisible.

Colossians 1:17

“And he is before all things, and by him all things consist” [Colossians 1:17]

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist” [Colossians 1:16-17]. The word ‘created’ is the Greek ktizo (ktiy’-zō): ‘to fabricate, i.e. found (form originally).’ Ktizo, ergo, theologically understood –very similar to Hebraic bara meaning ‘creation ex nihilo i.e. out of nothing’—, makes Jesus the originator of creationism. ‘Consist,’ sunistao (sïn-iy-staō’), συνιστάνω sunistano (sïn-iy-sta’-nō) [strengthened] or συνίστημι sunistemi (sïn-iy’-stee-miy) [also] in Greek means: ‘1. to set together. 2. (by implication) to introduce (favorably). 3. (figuratively) to exhibit. 4. (intransitively) to stand near. 5. (figuratively) to constitute.

“All things were made by him” [John 1:3]

There is not a smidgeon of doubt that the Original Creator should be the One who should have the capability of the Divinity to set the entire creation glued together. The Bible says in John 1:3-4, “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.” Ginomai (ǰiy’-no-mai) is the Greek for ‘made,’ meaning: ‘1. to cause to be (“gen”-erate). 2. (reflexively) to become (come into being). 3. (of events) to happen.’ The verb ‘without,’ choris (chō-riys’), means: ‘at a space, i.e. separately or apart from (often as preposition).’ And ‘life’ is zoe (zō-ee’): ‘1. life†. (more than merely the present physical or natural life). 2. life-above. (above or elevated in relation to the mere physical condition. There may be strong connotations and direct inferences to Spiritual, Kingdom, or Eternal life in certain contexts, but not always. This word deserves special demarcation and attention).’

In the Book of John 15:5, Jesus taught the factuality of His divinity. “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” This scripture takes us back to Exodus 25:8, where Jehovah made the Mosaic covenant, “And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.” Jesus is actually enabling a divine reassurance of Old Testamentary asseveration. Jesus is the only One needed to actuate soteriology, or else He would not have employed the use of the verb ‘abideth,’ meno (me’-nō), defined as ‘1. to remain. 2. (in a place) to abide, to stay. 3. (of expectancy) to await. 4. (in a state) to continue. 5. (in a task) to endure. 6. (of a relationship) to exist permanently in, inseparably united (inhere, adhere). The adverb ‘without’ is choris (chō-riys’): ‘at a space, i.e. separately or apart from (often as preposition).’

The Bridegroom and His Church

The Bridegroom attends to His eternal Bride. Amen.

(…continues from part 4…)

                God will never create another species of people better than Christians. We are His peripoesis. What is peripoesis? It is found in 1Peter 2:9, But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: The word ‘peculiar’ is the Greek peripoesis, which makes us a purchased property of His Divinity. If God will ever buy anything, would He spend His resources in exchange for a perishable item? As sinful as humans are, no right thinking one among us would want to use our hard earned money on anything that is valueless.

The Holiest One of Eternality at the Mount Sinai experience

                Jehovah sits in eternity. If He should love to purchase clothing, for instance, would the ETERNAL One buy raiment that will ever go out of fashion? Would the LORD God give out His bargaining strength for an acquisition that will see and be affected by corruption? Would a fabric that will be torn, as the time goes on, be God’s acquired possession? Peripoesis have definitions of: ‘preservation, safe keeping and a purchased acquisition.’ The preservation of the Christian is the sole preserve of the Trinity. How do I know this? It says in the Scriptures, “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” [John 3:16].

All things are held together by Jesus

Christians are the mystical body of Christ on earth

                What this new life of regeneration promises is: ‘should not perish,’ ergo, ‘everlasting life’ which the gift of God the Father engenders. The Christian is resident in the Father’s eternal palm. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand [John 10:29]. The active tense, ‘pluck’ is the Greek harpazo (har-pa’-zō) ‘to seize i.e. take by force’. Harpazo is a derivation of haireomai (hai-re’-o-mai) or hellomai (hel’-lo-mai) [a cognate form, which is otherwise obsolete] ‘to take for oneself, i.e. to prefer.’ No sinful act will ever authorise the evil entity of Satanism to bring the Christian into the hellish judgment domain of Lucifer.If none can pluck the regenerate soul from the Father’s hand, then, God Himself will not let go of His divine treasure –the Christian. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4) To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 5) Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time[1Peter 1:3-5].

Original sin

Christianity redeemed us from the original Adamic sinfulness

                “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his [Romans 8:9]. This Scripture underscores the divine participation of the Holy Spirit. His indwelling stance is eternal. You can never read anywhere in God’s protocol of the New Testamentary order acquainting His vacation of the regenerate soul. At the Christian’s earthly departure, the Holy Spirit must accompany him to heaven. Why? The Holy Spirit is the ‘seal’ of divine approval; the ‘earnest’ of God’s purchase of the Christian.

                Titus 3:5 reads, 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; where ‘renewing’ is anakainosis (a-na-kai’-nō-sis): ‘renewal, a renewing (i.e. brand-new).’ Anakainosis comesfrom  anakainoo (a-na-kai-no’-ō)to renovate.’ This reminds me of 2Corinthians 5:17 where the one found in Christ is termed ‘new,’ the Greek of which is a cognatekainos (kai-nos’):1. brand-new (i.e. newly made or introduced); fresh. 2. (also, by implication) distinctly better.’ The true Christian remains ever-fresh before the Eternal Majesty of the Rainbow Administration.

God-Incarnate

They did not know that seated among them was the LORD God of Eden!

                “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14) Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory [Ephesians 1:13-14]. The Holy Spirit is truly involved in the regeneration of our souls. We are ‘sealed,’ that is sphragizo (sfra-ǰiy’-zō) ‘1. to stamp (with a signet or private mark) for security or preservation. 2. (by implication) to keep secret, to attest.’ The Christian is not only ‘sealed,’ the Holy Spirit is his ‘earnest,’ arrhabon (ar-rha-ɓōn’) ‘a pledge, i.e. part of the purchase-money or property given in advance as security for the rest.’ The salient question here is this; if the Holy Spirit is given out as down payment, how much more is really, truly, being owed as far as the spiritual commercialism is concerned? Has the Holy Spirit a price tag? Selah!

Jesus calls us “Brethren” [Mark 3:34].

As the people of Christ, we become the next of kin to the Divinity

                As Jesus is the last Adam and the only Saviour, so are the Christians the last species of God’s creationism –of intelligent beings. We are the best: saved for the last exhibition of Jehovah’s fecundity.

Religion is basically manmade, to serve the deification crave of Satanism. If God has what you will call a religion, then it is called Christianity: named after the Second Member of the Godhead, to delineate the legitimacy of this true worship of the Most High.

Emmanuel: God, in Jesus, in deed, with us

4)            Who is the one involved with Christianity? He is the one of 1Peter 2:9-10 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10) Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

Christians are the redeemed

Amen; I am of the redeemed!

                Let me go through the definitions of some of the words in the above verses.

*Chosen is the Greek eklektos (ek-lek-tos’): ‘picked out, select, (by implication) favorite.’                          

*Generation is genos (ghen’-os): ‘kindred, offspring, family stock, tribe, nation.’                                               

*Royal, basileios (bas-il’-i-os), means: ‘kingly (by nature), regal.’                                                                                                

*Priesthood hierateuma (hee-er-at’-yoo-mah), is: ‘the office of a priest; the priestly fraternity, that is, a sacerdotal order (figuratively).’     

*Holy is hagios (hag’-ee-os): ‘most holy thing, a saint; sacred (physically pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially consecrated).                                                                                                                                    

*Nation is ethnos (eth’-nos). ‘Paul uses the term for Gentile Christians; a race (as of the same habit), that is, a tribe; specifically, a foreign (non-Jewish) one (usually by implication pagan.’

*Peculiar is made of two Greek eis and peripoiēsis. Eis (ice) is: ‘into, unto, to, towards, for, among.’ The second, peripoiesis (per-ee-poy’-ay-sis), means: ‘a preserving, a preservation; possession, one’s own property; an acquisition.’                                                                                                                                                                            

*People is laos (lah-os’), meaning: ‘group, tribe, nation, all those who are of the same stock and language; people (in general; thus differing from (dēmos (day’-mos) the people, the mass of people assembled in a public place ), which denotes one’s own populace).                                                                      

Jesus is the Potter of mankind

The moulding Potter, Creator of Christians – His vessels .

                Christianity, from this Petrine Epistle, is a selection reminiscent of God’s sculptural hands, as He picked a piece of clay from among the abundance of its enormous earthly deposit. If the Sculptor’s ingenious acumen had not gone any further, Adam would have remained just a mere masterpiece of sculpture. But the good Lord, Christ, the Second Member of the Godhead, desired more than a piece of clayey work of art. He breathed a personal and physical breath of life into the lifeless mould. “And Adam became a living soul,” so we have in the Mosaic couch of Genesis 2:7; the word ‘man’ in this verse is actually ‘Adam’ of the Hebraic ‘adam (aw-dawm’): ‘ruddy (from the redness of the colour of the earth) i.e. a human being (an individual or the species, mankind, etc.).

A Christian is fully justified

We don’t really know who we are: Christians are absolutely holy!

                In sharing life with the Adamic nature, Christianity was ushered into the generational stock of empyreal reality. Adam became Jehovah’s next of kin! Kinsmen of the Godhead. Unbelievable it looked –to an onlooking Lucifer. There is more to being a Christian –regality of sacerdotalism. We are priestly kings –in the order of Melchizedek. Spiritual suzerainty, that puts divine connectivity solely in the hands of Christianity. There is much more. Christianity, by the blood covenant of atonement, has metamorphosed into a saint, most holy, physically pure, morally blameless and ceremonially consecrated tribe of empyreal order. And what is more? The peculiarity of Christianity is absolutely of the Divinity. Our connection to the soteriological new birth is unto an acquisition of a tribe, eternally precious, a preserve of the Almighty Elohiym. No race –not even Israel—, at any point of historical time, is this elevated. Hallelujah!                                                                                                                      

Peter’s miraculous release from prison

Peter’s release makes Antichrist’s dominion of Christians an Impossibility

                In order to please the people Herod stretched forth his hand. He grabbed James the great. Herod killed a pillar of Christianity. James is the same as Jacob, which means a supplanter; he is the original Israel; this is probably why Israel, today, is dead, spiritually. The same Roman governmental machinery captured Simon Peter, with the same wish to sniff out his life. The difference between Israel’s Judaism and Christianity is in the name of Simon Peter. Simon means ‘hearing’ while Peter is ‘a lively stone’ –the concrete material of the architectural edifice, called God’s sanctuary. They, the Church, prayed and God had no choice but to hear and brought Peter to safety. Why? The categorical pellucidity of the word is, “I will build…………of hell shall not prevail against it.” Peter himself wrote, “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ” (1Peter 2:5).                                                                                             

His banner over us is His love

Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? (Isaiah 50:2)

                Biblical historicity tells us that John, in his old age, was arrested. They decided to execute him by throwing the Lord’s Apostle, whom He loved, into a heated cauldron of oil. John would not be fried, by the will of God. Why? His name, the Hebraic yôchânân (yo-khaw-nawn’) or Johanan, means: “Jehovah has graced or Jehovah-favoured.” Were we not, through Adam, dead? Were we not brought into life by the grace of Jehovah? For this reason, by the grace of God, the unmerited favour from His throne room, it was impossible to execute John, the concretism of the abstract Church.                                                                                                                                                                                        

Praying Christians

                Is there any congregational prayer like unto the Holy Spirit’s released glossolalia, which makes the Devil and his demons shiver, when Christians open their mouths to raise prayers known only of God’s chosen generation? Selah!                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Christians are the only chosen generation

The Chosen Generation!

                You have no idea how privileged it is to be truly involved spiritually with Christianity. We are the living phenomenon. The genuinely happening people of the world; called out to season the vapidity that marks the barbarism of the sinful Adamic population, and to beam the eternal light of salvation to all groping mankind. Christianity is God’s trump card to discomfit and to destroy the works of satanism.

CHRISTIANITY (3)

Jesus is the Saviour

(…continues from part 2…)

3)            Whether the Devil likes it or not, that is what we are –Christians—, God’s prevailed Prince. The Hebraic ‘prevailed’ is: yâkôl (yaw-kole’) ‘to be able, be able to gain or accomplish, be able to endure, be able to reach.’ Remember Jesus made the asseveration, “shall not prevail against,” concerning the Church, in Matthew 16:18? It is very interesting that ‘shall’ and ‘prevail against’ have the same Hebrew word katischuō (kat-is-khoo’-o), meaning: ‘overcome.’ There is, therefore, a double assurance of the Church’s triumphant strides. Let us go back to Genesis 32:28 where Jacob was said to ‘have power with God,’ and God here, is ‘ĕlôhı̂ym (el-o-heem’): ‘rulers, divine ones, judges, gods in the ordinary sense; used of the Supreme God.’ Should it not be apropos to explore the antithetical imagery in this verse? The noun ‘man’ ‘ĕnôsh (en-oshe’) in Hebrew is: ‘man, mortal man, mere man.’ Israel, having prevailed to be the Prince by the side of the Almighty Elohiym, will most definitely triumph over the wiles of Satanism, aided by mere mortality of a man of the dust. Now, I believe it is pellucid enough to understand the appropriate double asseveration of the Christian’s triumphant decree of the Divinity.

Pharaoh perished in the Red Sea

Pharaoh perished –an unbeliever.

                Pharaoh, forsooth, you were grounded in the dearth of good counsellors. If you were not bereft of the sagacity of counsellors, you would have been strongly counselled against the antagonism you preferred towards Jehovah Elohiym. The LORD God desired the Church worship before His holiest presence. His choice of assemblage was the Israeli concourse. Pharaoh, if you did not make it to the paradise of Abraham’s Bosom, you are, without controversy, licking your wounds in hell, for not asking the Israelites for an invitation to worship this Jehovah alongside His prince, the Church.                                           

Sinless family of Adam

The first Eden Church 

                It had been a long time the Lord had had a communion with His people. The Eden fellowship would receive a reenactment in the wilderness –the celestial Church brought down to the earth. The Lord had shown Moses the architectural design. Three verses show that God is the Architect of the place of holy concourse. Exodus 25:9 “According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.” Towards the end of the chapter is: “And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount” (Exodus 25:40). The Pauline exegesis teaches: “Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount” (Hebrews 8:5).                                                 

Israel

Israel, Jehovah has your back.

                No nation, till today, has the close fellowship Israel experienced with the Lord of creation. The stage was set for the emergence of the true Church.                                                                                                                                 It eventually happened in the Upper Room. Acts 2:1-4 “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”                                               

Prophet Daniel

Daniel saw and prophesied it all

                Through the children of God, great emperors have heard veracious vaticination of global events. Nebuchadnezzar even became a believer before his death. A most erratic Ahasuerus would give a most favourable attention to the prayer of queen Esther whose true Hebrew name, Hadassah, typifies the Christian. Hadassah is Hebrew for the myrtle tree. How is Hadassah the typicality of the Christian Church? It is 1) a lowly tree. 2) a fragrant shrub. 3) beautiful; and 4) happens to be an evergreen plant. Lowliness of the myrtle makes the Christian of an obedient and humble heart. Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass” (Zechariah 9:9).

                The Christian Church gives off a pleasant smell to the nostrils of the Divinity. 2Corinthians 2:15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish.”                                                                                                                                       

Adam and Eve

                One of the wowing joys to Adam, that made the woman a persona grata entity was her enthralling pulchritude. Romans 10:15 “And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”

                The book of John 3:15 accounts for the evergreen nature of the Christian, which reads, “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” The evergreen stance of the Christian makes his salvation unalterable. He Holy Spirit maintains the Christian’s holiness forever.

Luke 10:19

                The Christian is a one crowned with divine power. Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Mark 16:15-18 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16) He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18) They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

2)            Most Christians do not realise how so blessed, highly favoured and well protected they are! A mountain of angelic bulwark serves as the protection of Christians, Jehovah’s beloved! When Adam and his wife dropped the ball in Eden, God cleansed them, for forgiveness, by slaughtering two animals, using the flowing crimson fluid as the propitiation –God covered them in an adumbrative righteousness of the Christ. 

The Blood of Jesus

His blood speaks better things

                Animals were not created with regenerative spirits, ergo, serving as expendable souls of spiritual deliverance from the Adamic sinful nature. What a Jehovah of mercy He is, His judgments unsearchable, and His ways past finding out!

                Every divine covenant must be blood sealed. Before the creation of the Eden Garden woman blood flowed from the extracted rib of Adam the male, who prefigured Jesus, the Bridegroom of the Church. The Church of the redeemed must come under the blood covenant. Sin had separated Adam from the Creator. This is why Cain’s bloodless sacrifice would not be accepted. The animal for sacrifice, having lost its life, the blood, in which dwells the life of the living, must be exchanged for the unholy life of the human sinner. This blood propitiation went on for four thousand years.

2Corinthians 5:17

                Four is the number of creation. When it came to the birthing of the Church, the blood of the animals would not do; it will vitiate the divine bourne of the Church. So, what did He do? He came by Himself, laid down His sinless life and poured forth His blood, a substitutionary death for all who would approach the Holy throne of grace for an eternal remission of sin. Jesus Christ is the eternal Lord from heaven. His sacrifice –birthing the Church— is an eternal act; quite unlike that of the ephemeral bulls, sheep and goats –of Old Testamentary order. He is older than eternity. His gift was His very eternal Self. An immutability! The Church of Christianity is the sole medium of soteriological facticity. Amen.

Church Service

                Why do think Cain was stolen from the pristine parents and, what do you think is the reason for goading the first family into sinfulness? The Christian Church! To steal it, kill it, and to get it absolutely destroyed! Satan the Devil’s desiderative crave is to silence the Church –the vehicle of divine afflatus. Amen. Luciferian putsch à la Cain’s treachery resulted in the nascent world’s dichotomous life. It is what I call the antediluvian saints –of Adam— and the antediluvian miscreants –led by the falsehood of Cain’s priesthood. Adam and his wife asked for it –by their disobedience.

                The Christian Church must move on. An antediluvian saint, Enoch, lived such an exemplary life that he spent just a very few three hundred and sixty years, and was taken away from the earth, undying –à la rapture. His own son, Methuselah, lived the longest, of 969 years, saved from the annihilation of the great deluge which took place just after he slept in the Lord, his God. Jesus knows how to take care of His Christian Bride.                                   

The Bride and the Divine Bridegroom

                Noah, the last prophet of the antediluvian Christian Church, preached for a hundred and twenty years, and having touched every corner of the nascency of our world [Matthew 24:14], destruction was unleashed, but not until the Church was safely kept –God’s precious treasure. For your information, the “ark,” in the Hebrew language, is called tebah (tay-ɓaw’), a feminine noun, meaning: ‘a box (of treasure).’ Jehovah kept His Bride of inestimable price in perfect safety!

                Then came the faithful Abraham. He must be of faith to be of the Christian Church, most definitely. Of this Abraham the Scripture says, 13 “For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, 14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee” (Hebrews 6:13-14). What made God swore at all was to ensure that absolutely nothing stops the construction of the most sacred edifice –Christianity. Along the line of destiny, God said to Jacob, “Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed” (Gen 32:28). Jacob is the Hebraic ya‛ăqôb (yah-ak-obe’) meaning: “heel holder” or “supplanter”. Israel comes out in Hebrew as yiśrâ’êl (yisrawale’), made of two words: śârâh (saw-raw’) ‘to prevail: have power (as a prince),’ and ‘êl (ale): ‘strength; as adjective mighty; especially the Almighty (but used also of any deity).’ Put together, Israel means: ‘a Prince by the side of God’ or ‘he will rule as God’.
