LUCIFER’S DESIDERATION: God of gods (2)

 3dd00bb18795bfa72b535da7443707f0

     Satan lost the war in heaven: let’s make him lose here on earth.

Any religious organization that employs the symbolism of a circle, sun, moon or star could be a recruiting ground for satanic initiation. The halo and the star represent the sun, hence, Baal or Nimrod. The moon brings you down the altar of Semiramis, Venus, Diana, Artemis, Ashtoreth, Isis (you name it) it is the same wife of Nimrod. Satanism! Period!

satanic-pope-hexagram

Kabbalic symbol is the supposed “star of David.” Really? This is a monumental falsehood. When the LORD God wants to expose your wayward apostasy, He allows you to commit irreversible blunders. If they had called it ‘the star of Solomon’ maybe they could boast of a small point, in that King Solomon did commit apostasy, and he could have delved into occult practices. But David? As heinous some of his crimes were, he never committed apostasy. He knew his way back. Always. There is no scriptural basis for a ‘star of David.’ It has no Judaistic connection with Jehovah. Cabbala is global for Lucifer à la corrupted Judaism.

                 Roman Catholic professes Christianity. It is one billion, two hundred million globally strong. The first contumacious act of Catholicism against the scriptural truth is to make Peter its first Pope or Bishop. Peter’s apostleship was scripturally to the Jews. Romish Catholicism is strictly of the Gentiles. Again if they had made Paul, who happened to be the apostle of the Gentiles, as the first Pope that could score them a good point, maybe. The Romish Church loves art and in most cases will depict sacred individuals by placing a halo on their heads in works of art.

Purgatory. Just why this unscriptural indoctrination of purgatory when the Bible unequivocally teaches, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” [John 3:3]? Baby Jesus must be tied to Mary, mother of God, queen of the saints, queen of the angels or much better still “queen of heaven!” (Jeremiah 44:17). Will this baby (Jesus) never be weaned? John saw Him on the island of Patmos and what does the Bible record? Revelation 1:17 reads, “And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:” This is Jesus, the Jehovah of Israel!

They (Roman Catholic Popes) will be in Baal’s trouble if they should wean Jesus. Isis, the Egyptian goddess is always clutching on Horus, her baby of millennia. A diligent search will show you Semiramis breastfeeding Tammuz as well. Remember what I said earlier on? There is no difference between Semiramis and Isis for the twain are the one and the same goddess. Tammuz and Horus are not two different gods.

catholic & islam revere the moon & sun gods

Catholicism, Babylon and Islam cannot do without the moon (Semiramis)

Mary must also not be without baby Jesus. Why? Catholicism cannot afford to jettison Baal, their sun god. There should be little wonder why the Pope must insist on Mariolatry and the mediatrix role of Mary. Nimrod, Semiramis and Tammuz are they not long dead? Does Catholicism not stubbornly persist in the adoration of their dead saints? Are they worshipping Jesus the Christ, or Tammuz and Semiramis? The Bible strengthens our faith with, “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith [Mark 11:23].” So why must Catholic faithfuls continue to purchase indulgences?

images_294

Without the moon Islamic worship will run into serious jeopardy. When in doubt as to whether one is facing the Kaaba or not, “Just face the rising sun,” is the Islamic safety advice. On their mosques are the artwork of the star and the crescent. Have Nimrod and his Semiramis received worship from Islam five times a day or not? Right there on each of the four huge minarets of Mecca mosque are the crescents! Below them are the subtle design of the sun. Why would Islam prefer the prominence of the crescent is not far-fetched. The pristine worshippers of Allah received or believed the moon as the god (Nimrod) and the sun as the goddess, you know who?

planets-asteroids-15293-1920x1080

The halo isn’t a representation God’s holiness. It’s of Nimrodic Satanism.

Get Jesus initiated by getting born again: pray this 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!         (…to be continued…)

IS CHRISTIANITY AN IMPORTED RELIGION? (Part two)

 800px-Jacob_de_Backer_-_Garden_of_Eden_-_WGA1125

          This is where the Church started –Garden of Eden

 (Continued from part one)

                How I know that the woman is the consummation of the Church, in Eden, is found in Genesis 2:22. But when the Creator was set to bring to fructification, the desire of His heart, the Bible says: And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man (Genesis 2:22). Interestingly the ‘made’ in this verse is a different banah (baw-naw’) which means ‘to build (literally and figuratively),’ –an architectural term. The Church, figuratively, is a woman, the bride of Christ. Adam’s woman was the consummation of the first church and Christ did fellowship with them every day. Christ, in the midst of the first human couple, every cool of the day, is the assemblage of first Church on earth.

Christianity

We do know that Israel, Europe and Africa can be genealogically traced to our pristine parents. These three races were sired by the antediluvian saint, Noah. Shem, probably his first son, means ‘name or fame.’ Ham, the progenitor of the coloured, African race, means ‘warmth, heat or hot;’ and Japheth, the father of Europe has the definition of ‘expansion.’ All of them survived the great flood just because they were obedient (the only requirement needed to qualify anyone for the survival of God’s wrath) to the prophetic evangelism of their father. Jesus, being the word of God, is very God of very God. He is the same yesterday, today and forever more. Amen!

To Shem, whose descendants happen to be Israel, was committed the oracular afflatus which birthed the Christian faith. Israel famed Christianity, taking it beyond the shores of its territorial landmass. Japheth did enlarge the gospel of Christian faith: for it was Europe that expanded the gospel of Jesus Christ, and who was forced to invent the printing press so that, “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world…” shall become a reality. Today, look at Africa and its inclined hankering for the gospel of the LORD God, Jesus Christ. Africa is truly ‘hot’ for Christianity. Shem, à la Israel, made the nascent way of eternal life known to the world when Peter, on the day of Pentecost, preached the first Christian sermon of soteriology.

WANT-and-SHOULD-christianity-32802525-816-672

Japheth it is, that took Christianity to the next level of operational evangelism. The Bible, God’s protocol, must need be made readily available. It was a herculean task producing just one New Testament, not to talk of the whole corpus of revelation. Necessity truly brought about the natal invention of the printing press to ease the production of copies of the Bible, in its millions. Japheth has played his evangelical role. He brought Christianity to our doorstep.

It is the turn of Ham to show his fervent disposition to God’s business. He has taken the evangelistic baton from Japheth, continuing the glorious proclamation of the gospel. This is what Christianity is unfolding. It must be this phenomenal. Africa must cross every available ‘t’ and ensure the proper dotting of every ‘i’ to actualize Christ’s dream of salvation to mankind. Africa is not hot for Jesus for nothing. It is his turn (of Ham) to preach, the same way Noah did, gave it to his sons, who took turns to deliver this spiritual phenomenon. Where, I ask, is the importation of Christianity to Africa or elsewhere? Selah.

Christianity-isnt-an-evil-religion

Christianity is not a religion. It is the way of life. It is all about Jesus –the way, truth and the life; the Word of God, the true Light, the power of God, the knowledge of God and who is seated in His rightful right hand of the Majesty in the heavenly assizes– who is the Author and Finisher of the faith that alone leads to God the Father with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

IS CHRISTIANITY AN IMPORTED RELIGION? (Part one)

 

1057536

In the land of Israel, among the one hundred and twenty Jews, in an upper room, about ten days after His ascension, on the day of Pentecost: that was the genesis of Christianity. Christianity, which is the mystical body of the Second Member of the Godhead, is named after its founder, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Governor of the nations.

Jesus said in Matthew 16:18, “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” He did not build the church upon Peter. Peter cannot hold the Church together neither can he supply every spiritual need of the body of Christ. It is Christ’s outward existence not Peter’s. Two key words here are Peter and rock. ‘Peter’ in the Greek is Petros (pet’-ros): ‘a (piece of) rock (larger than a precious stone); as a name, Petrus, an apostle.’ ‘Rock’ is petra (pet’-ra) ‘Feminine of the same as Petros; a rock, cliff or ledge a projecting rock, crag, rocky ground.’

The petra is actually in reference to Jesus standing before Petros. While petros is ‘a piece of rock, petra is ‘a mountain, mass of rock,’ and that is the difference. John 1:1-10 categorically asseverates the deity of Jesus with: v1)”and the Word was God.” v2)”The same was in the beginning with God.” v3)”All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” v4)”In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” v9) “That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world” and in v10) “the world was made by him.”

c04bcfe82ef835ebba440450fdc8defa

Also credited to the King of kings is: “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]. If the gospel, euaggelion (yoo-ang-ghel’-ee-on): ‘good tidings,’ must go to all the crannies of the world and HE did give the great commission of Mark 16:15, “…Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature;” then He spoke as the Owner of the universe that He truly is. When He told mankind that, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” in Matthew 11:28, He was actually relieving us from the errableness of religion. The word ‘labour,’ kopiao (kop-ee-ah’-o), means: ‘1. to feel fatigue 2. (by implication) to work hard.’ And phortizo (for-tid’-zo), the Greek word for ‘heavy laden’ is defined as, ‘1. (properly) to load up (a vessel or animal) 2. (figuratively) to overburden with ceremony (or spiritual anxiety).’

Christ was always here, every evening, to fellowship with them.

If religion cannot save by the reason of its fallibility why would Jesus build another? The Church, as a matter of fact, had been brought into existence right from the days of the Garden of Eden. The LORD God, Christ, in His pre-incarnate manifestation, said in Genesis 2:18 “…It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him; where the word ‘make’ is `asah (aw-saw’): ‘to do or make, in the broadest sense and widest application (to create out of an existing material).’ How I know that the woman is the consummation of the Church, in Eden, is found in Genesis 2:22.

THIS EVIL COULD HAVE BEEN JUST

c6b7b971c454449d86ffb7239dfdc4b5

THIS IS LUCIFER, THE LOSER.

He is the consummator of cruelty. He took the game of diabolism to an unprecedented height of scientific piece of art work, becoming the cognoscente of fiendishness (birth of wizardry). His name is Lucifer, Satan the Devil. The malicious dynamics of this angelic, evil incarnate, being is executed with an absolute accuracy. It could have been right for him to be so evil, but for the fact that from a chronologically incalculable eternity past the established normative conduct, even before creationism, is goodness. And there is absolutely nothing he could or can ever do about it. Amen!

Lucifer's angels

I’ll be like God and you’ll rule by my side as my lieutenants, he beguiled fellow angels.

Lucifer was created in a prevailing ambience of goodness, in the paradise of the blissful heaven. Goodness wielded the almighty power, a sweeping power that is beyond the depth of eternity past even unto eternity to come; it defies any form of measurement. Goodness is God Himself, hence, the expressed wrongs by the evil personage cannot argue the validation of its operations with the environmental goodness it had found itself. As globally the monstrosity of the destructiveness of Satan’s power is evidently lucid, he still is the broad space of eternity much less in power, compared to that of goodness. Goodness, the Divine, is totally supreme!

Lucifer's_Heresy_large

The Devil, the liar and the father of it.

God did make sure that before He created anything at all He is seated on the throne as the King Potentate. All powerful Ruler. Jehovah (i.e. the self-existing One) God. The only Eternal Judge (HE is a God of legality). The all-knowing and the Omnipresent. He had known everything from the everlasting past to the eternity of eternity to come. He decided to assume a tripartite Personages called, in theology, the Trinity. The First Member is to sit on the throne of the celestial assizes, eternally, as God, the Eternal, Father.

luci4

Angel of darkness: Lucifer.

The Second Member has the designation of the Saviour, because His faculty of foreknowledge saw that man would be caught in the web of the ruinous sin of eternal consequence. He knew that man could never be able to free himself from this spiritual aberration and that it will take God alone to undo the Divine curse. The Second Member, the Word of God, the True Light that lights the life of every procreation and the only visibility among the Trinity, is very God of very God. He had been before creation, so, He is essentially God. There had to be the Christ, as the Second Member to save those who would decide to come to Him, after the fall, believing Him and be saved. Only God can save, Jesus Christ, the Saviour, for this reason, is God. Amen!

Man would need to be tutored in the way and things of the unseen God. His Spirit, the Third Member, is the only One who can search the hearts of man –a preserve of the Almighty alone. God alone, and none else, can serve as the genuine seal of the One who is seated eternally on the throne. No angel can give any created being an utterance of divine discourse but God. The Holy Spirit endues us with this kind of power, which the Divinity alone is capable of, from above. He teaches us all things which only God can consummate. He is the Director and the Manager of our lives: God eternal.

luci

You cannot be just in this evil game, O Lucifer!

The Devil has the power to destroy and annihilate every life in the universe but he cannot. A paradox that continues to eat him deep into craziness. A prevailing arm is constantly restraining him to do that havoc. He saw the arm of Isaiah 53:1, Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? He witnessed the unbelievable power of the most high when Jesus was raised from the dead. It was a mind blowing, incontestable true event. He was hit by the rage of the salvaging arm of the Father such that he is still licking his deteriorating wound.

This evil being is smart enough to find a way of legalizing his malicious escapade by deceiving the woman of Adam to do the unexpected evil. The earth, legally speaking, became his, and for which reason he could parade himself as the ‘god of this world,’ with a tremendous power. But He is not eternal like Jehovah. His days, therefore are very short.

lucifer 1

EVIL MUST BE JUDGED, LUCIFER.

There is not a way for him to appeal the sentence of hell handed to him for the disobedience to the course of goodness. There is only One Judge: Jehovah God. Now it is too clear to his chagrin that his evil prurience is not true: an unattainable desideration. It is unreal according to divine operative. It is unrighteous, hence, a deceitful mirage that he did, unfortunately, dream of. His dream clashed, insolently, with Christ’s. His evil stance run antagonistically to the teachings of the Holy Spirit. The end of which no evil can ever justify the satanic means. Selah!

EVIL IS DOOMED TO FAIL & FALL

IS IT WRONG TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS ON THE 25TH DECEMBER? (part two)

       And God spoke, “LET THERE BE….” ten times, without any opposition.

 

(…continued from the first part)

There was not even an effete objection to all His ten commands of “and God said” from day one to the seventh day of His rest. The day after His Sabbath rest happened to be the new beginning of the second week which had continued to be replicated ever since. Every day, ergo, is Christ’s, the Creator. When He died, to save the world, He rose the third day because He is the One “Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it [Act 2:24]. Amen!

wisemen.came.bearing.1

The word ‘loosed’ is luo (loo’-o) in the Greek, meaning: ‘1. to “loosen” 2. (by usage) to break, destroy, or dissolve 3. (maritally) to divorce.’ He was the first to establish, and to join in holy matrimony of our pristine parents. When sin entered our world, we got illicitly married to Lucifer. He that had power to lay down His life and take it back (John 10:17-18) cannot be an ordinary person. He must be Jehovah God. This Personage is found in Jeremiah 23:6, “In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” This is the prophetic pronouncement of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ. Is He Jehovah? Yes! The title ‘LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS,’ in the Hebrew is Yhovah tsidqenuw (ye-ho-vaw’ tsid-kay’-noo) which means: ‘1. Jehovah (is) our right 2. Jehovah-Tsidkenu, a symbolical epithet of the Messiah and of Jerusalem.’

Tomb of Jesus

                 He rose to save this sinful world from a calamitous end. Some wise people decided to receive Him, JESUS, as LORD and Saviour. These are followers of the risen Christ, who is coming back for them. He clothed them in His righteousness and they, the Christians, became the body of Christ on earth, waiting for His magnificently grand appearance. Amen!

If the mystical body of Christ, the Church, decides to make use of one out of the whole three hundred and sixty-five or the leap year days, in commemoration of His Incarnation, what is the big deal? Does He not own it all? Is the first day of the week, Sunday, not named after Nimrod, the sun deity? Did Nimrod create anything? Should we refuse to go to Church on Sundays just because Satan has hijacked the day for his global worship? Which of the days of the week is not named after idolatrous worship?

6e4bbb5241296e8bd4936d82bae93172

Sunday is of the sun god. Monday is that of the moon: this is none other than the moon goddess, Semiramis. (Following definitions credited to Collins Dictionary) Tuesday is Martis day of Mars; (in Anglo-Saxon mythology) the god of war and the sky. Wednesday in old English is Wōdnes dæg Woden’s day, translation of Latin mercurii dies Mercury’s day; related to Old Frisian wōnsdei, Middle Dutch wōdensdach. Woden or Wodan the foremost Anglo-Saxon god. Norse counterpart: Odin. Thursday: Old English Thursdæg, literally: Thor’s day; thunder, day –Thor is the god of thunder. Friday: Old English Frīgedæg, literally: Freya’s day; related to Old Frisian frīadei, Old High German frīatag. Freya or Freyja [ˈfreɪə] Norse myth the goddess of love and fecundity, sister of Frey (the Norse god of fertility, crops, peace, and prosperity). Saturday is from old English sæternes dæg, translation of Latin Sāturnī diēs day of Saturn, the Roman god of agriculture and vegetation; Greek counterpart: Cronus

January is the Latin Janus the Roman god of doorways, passages, and bridges. In art he is depicted with two heads facing opposite ways. February: Latin Februārius mēnsis month of expiation, from februa Roman festival of purification held on February 15, from plural of februum a purgation. March is from Latin Martius (month) of Mars (they worshipped heavenly bodies). May: Latin Maius, probably from Maia, Roman goddess, identified with the Greek goddess Maia. Maia [ˈmaɪə] Greek myth the eldest of the seven Pleiades, mother by Zeus of Hermes. July is from Gaius Julius Caesar, in whose honour it was named; while August was named after the emperor Augustus. Romans were hero worshippers.

Oh come, let us adore HIM!

Would it not be so puerile to deny Jehovah His true worship on these days and months simply because Satan has shown interest in, and has polluted by hijacking, them? Selah. Jesus is Lord! Amen!        (The Conclusion)

CAN GOD WALK INTO AN AMBUSH? (three)

(…continued from part 2)

Sinfulness is quite mysterious. Unseen hand goads you into adventurous evil. The deceiver makes you enjoy the immorality. For unknown reason you want to continue in it! Astounding!

Ghoulish slaughter of sacrificial scapegoats is believed to be the order on the altars of Freemasonry and the Illuminati. Voodooism and its attendant dreadful secrecy cut across Africa and South America. Baal worship, which drew God’s ire to the point of giving them up for destruction, has received a modern touch. Kabbalah is the choice of Jewry, God’s own chosen nation. Governments are cultic. Businesses belong to the initiates alone. The fear of the Most High, to them, is nil. Bad.

Those who, like Paul, will, with all sincerity of their knowledge filled hearts, say, “…for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day;” (of 2 Timothy 1:12) do understand who and what God is. It is evidently crystal that it is impossible to waylay God. Nothing, absolutely, takes Him by surprise. Is He not the Omniscient? Let us read some scriptural truisms from Isaiah 40:12-25. Verse 12, “Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?” In the hollow of his hand, and not even both hands? Well I understand that Disney of Hollywood will, effortlessly, put it on the silver screen, but certainly not without the gimmicks of cinematography and the dexterity of seasoned acting, however.

bible-archeology-red-sea-crossing

Verses 13 and 14 rhetorically require answers concerning His knowledge. If verse 15 makes the a categorical “Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing;” and that of 16 “And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering;” beams great lights on God’s majestic preeminence. Lebanon is famed for the best trees. Put the trees and all the expensive animals of Lebanon together and it will be too insufficient to serve as a proper sacrifice before His supreme Majesty, says the language divinely given to the historian and prophet Isaiah. Driving the truth home is the 17th “All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.” It is now apropos for another rhetorical question of the 18th “To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?”  The 19th and the 20th both serve as an intimation of the folly of any comparison with the Most High.

9ccf24077835bcd4d647c8a9033c55ef

One glaring and immutable truth I have learnt about God is that any moment He approaches with a question there is never an answer that will favour the respondent. So, what we read in verse 21, “Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?” actually prepares the sober minded one for: “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: 23. That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity;” the 22nd & 23rd verses to be well digested. This is, so that the effusive 24th, “Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble:” having been understood, there cannot arise any iota of the slightest misconception at any given moment when we read Isaiah 40 of the 25th verse, “To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One?” I heard someone whisper, “It’s a rhetoric question, needing no answer,” and to which I say, “Amen!”       (Concluded)

CAN GOD WALK INTO AN AMBUSH? (one)

9832785D-9296-4D95-9101-55595E7BE1A1

Ask an atheist and he will come up with, “Do I even believe in his existence?” His final conclusion will be, “Of course, yes, all things being equal.” What will be the response of Paul Tillich, whose theology is based upon ontological assumptions? Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536) the Dutch humanist, will, no doubt, receive a nudge from Humanism in his answer. And it is indubitable what Friedrich W. Nietzsche’s assertion, the author of the teaching, “God is dead” will be. It is most evident that Rev. Chris Okotie, my pastor’s, answer is an emphatic, “No way!”

Pastor Chris Okotie

Rev. Chris Okotie

This topic, to many, sounds so puerile. You will appreciate the germaneness if you are apprised of philosophical foray into theology. Most atheists in an acute obduracy are of the conclusion that, “since this God can’t be accessed….He’s dead;” in their submission. Paul Tillich, a university professor and doctorate degree holder in philosophy is also a Professor of Theology. To him, “the word ‘theology’ conveys the meaning of logos (reasoning) and theos (God and divine things). This places him in the philosophical understanding that God is to be reasoned out! Tillich said that faith is not knowledge, he claims to know. His apologetic theology sees pistis (faith) as gnosis (knowledge) in his reading of the New Testament, which easily arrays him in the toga of a latter-day Gnostic. He sees Jesus as the New Being, a pointer to his Hegelian induction.

paul T

Paul Tillich

From his ontological romance, Tillich wrote, “If we say that something is living, we indicate that it is dying.” His Hegelian immersion made him see God as developing from Being: the trinitarian Father is the Power of Being, whom he dialectically set up as the Hegelian new theses standing in antithesis to Logos (Jesus), from which comes a synthesis (Holy Spirit).

The only reason why an avowed Humanist like Desiderius Erasmus would dabble into Church matters is just to muddy the waters of the kerygma, using his excellent ebullience to paint it with humanistic colours. He provided enough support for Martin Luther’s cause but stuck unexpectedly with Catholicism. Erasmus’ ‘Christian’ humanism had blossomed forth in the movement’s confidence that man is quite well able to do without God because he can find absolute and radical freedom from all moral laws in a Christ who has become united with fallen humanity. I believe the reason why Erasmus would not join Luther was not farfetched. He still bowed to Mary, he believed in Catholicism, and is comfortable with transubstantiation: all of which the true Church would reject.

Friedrich W. Nietzsche

Friedrich W. Nietzsche

Nietzsche wrote a book, “The Madman” where he put the words, “death of God” his Madman cried, “Do we not hear anything yet of the noise the grave diggers who are burying God? Do we not smell anything yet of God’s decomposition? Gods too decompose. God is dead” (Madman). A whole lot of philosophers and theologians gave their active support e.g. Paul Tillich, Rudolf Bultmann, T.J.J. Altizer (who said, “God has actually died), Martin Buber (God is merely an eclipse), Bonhoeffer (who believes that, “Man is now self-sufficient and has no need of God”) and William Blake. These people have quite a large followership.

God is present

From the Bible, my sole reference point, which I have studied very well, Jehovah, the God of the Christian Bible, can only be seen, heard and understood by faith. Hypocrisy reigns so effortlessly in the hearts of humanity. Man takes one look at the weather and decides, “I don’t need an umbrella.” He believes his political leader’s promise. “I’ll pass this examination.” When it comes to the Creator he refuses to expend the same faith. He does not know that the enemy is the one behind his nonconformist Gibraltar obduracy. Satan always goes into hiding to set people against the Lord of creation.

Omnipotent

The stark reality is that this God of heaven and the earth is the only good One; and that He has carefully planted His true existence inside every living entity. Anyone who denies Him is being stubbornly unrealistic. There are actually two forces. Your repudiation of the good One automatically attracts the evil enemy. You must come to the good God by faith, therefore. Lucifer turns you from this good Jehovah by handing you a useless toy called calculation of empiricism, in the name of philosophy, which takes you on an endless journey of unproductiveness.

NO COMPROMISE (one)

Did Daniel die in the ruinous den of ferocious lions? No! So, don’t compromise.

He is an exceptionally great sportsperson. This guy who has won so many laurels has, for so many occasions, been invited to join the secret cults of masonry but had for that many times declined. His sole reason being, “I’m already in the secret cult of JESUS.” As a Christian he believes he is 110,000% wholly Jesus’, therefore, there, ostensibly, is no room left to join another cult.

Anytime he is poised to score a good point an invisible dart will just fly towards his direction to maim him. An angel sends the dart off his direction, into the belly of the ground. There were times when the satanic weapons were sent back to the evil culprits, maiming or sniffing out their lives outright. Tongues begin to wag à la press publications. Little did they know that Psalm 91:5, “Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;” was at work from the Lord whom this great footballer confesses as his Lord and Saviour.

For I know that my redeemer liveth,” he said, in Job 19:25

He was Abrahamic resolute, walking the walk side by side his Jehovah. He would not trade-off his covenantal position with Jehovah for anything. In the face of aggravating vicissitudinary turns of life he becomes the philosophical Job in equanimity. Of course she is a Mary who, in expectation of her Lord’s demand, kept herself from youthful concupiscent inclination, thereby, making her matrix available for the LORD’s use.

He asked himself what Joseph’s stance would be if he were an athlete and found out, from the scriptures, that he would certainly have stuck to his uncompromising integrity. Hear an uncompromising Joseph in Genesis 39:9, “There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?” (Emphasis mine).

Yes, David walked a route meant for a dastard when he ordered the assassination of Uriah, the husband of Bathsheba, whom he was committing adultery with, but this same David always knew how to come back to the Father and he never forsook the worship of Jehovah all the days of his historic life; and in this wise he trod the path of David.

ALIANZA CON ABRAHAM

Abraham, the father of faith.

“And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect” [Gen 17:1]. The verb ‘walk,’ is hâlak (haw-lak’): ‘to walk (in a great variety of applications, literally and figuratively), lifestyle.’ Abraham chose a lifestyle that put a smile on the divine countenance of Jehovah. ‘Perfect’ is tâmı̂ym (taw-meem’): ‘entire (literally, figuratively or morally); also (as noun) integrity, truth.’ Abraham’s integrity remained in one piece; he died at an eld of one hundred and seventy-five years, having run an enviable race.

The book of Job 2:9-10 reads, 9) “Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. 10) But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.The word ‘integrity,’ tûmmâh (toom-maw’) means, ‘innocence.’

Job’s ‘no compromise’ stand paid off. Amen.

Job’s innocence and obdurate fidelity earned him one of the biggest earthly biblical rewards. “And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before” [Job 42:10]. This, no doubt, made him the richest man on earth! Your story can end so beautifully like Job’s: “Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold. 12) So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. 13) He had also seven sons and three daughters. 14) And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch. 15) And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren. 16) After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations” [Job 42:10-16].

My advice is, “Don’t compromise.”

It is a well-known fact that Job was, personally, guiltless of the predicament he found himself. He faced his trials with a certain equanimity. Tribulations are good for us. They teach us how to wear the fitting robe of patience. It is getting worse these days after six thousand years of Adam’s unfortunate act that has plunged man into this quaggy state of depravity. Knowing fully well that God has imbued every individual with the spirit of equanimity, it is quite expedient for him to exploit this virtue to his own advantage when he gets ambushed in a trial. It will always rear up its head: trial.

              “How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?”

The no-compromise person remembers Joshua and Deborah. Joshua’s strength is predicated on, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success” [Joshua 1:8].

WHY WILL GOD ALLOW CERTAIN THINGS? (part four)

01a057c39acf94fa60793faa03f6582d                                        Cain, you did ask for it, didn’t you?

(continued from part three)   It goes beyond a case of questioning His authority, you are actually insulting Jehovah when you try to play God. The excellence of God’s personage is so salient that the creation of man must truly be godlike in order not to marginalize His creative prowess. To Adam God imputed free moral agency.

God did brief Adam when he was made the lord of the earth. In the course of bringing her to Adam, God would, no doubt, have briefed the woman on her ‘help meet for him’ role. While Adam was ‘to dress and to keep’ the Garden, the woman was to serve as a ‘help meet.’ ‘Dress’ is ‛âbad (aw-bad’) ‘to work (in any sense); by implication to serve, till, (causatively) enslave, etc.’ ‘Help meet’ in Hebrew, is ‛êzer (ay’-zer): ‘aid;’ this word comes from ‛âzar (aw-zar’): ‘to surround, that is, protect or aid.’

1372004275_Forbidden fruit (always the best)

                                              Man was made a free moral agent

The woman that God brought was a bodyguard; whose job was to support her husband by agreeing with him, who is the lord, priest and the prophet of Eden and consequently the earth. They were absolutely responsible for their action or inaction. It was a mark of gross perfidy when Cain defiantly asked, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” These words were the proof of an apodeictic apostasy. The word ‘keeper’ is shâmar (shaw-mar’): ‘properly to hedge about (as with thorns), that is, guard; generally to protect, attend to, etc.’ Shâmar is the same word God used when He told Adam to ‘keep’ the Garden. The eternally uprightness of God’s word of instruction became despicable to Cain’s warped perception. “I don’t need Your instructions, I’ll rather protect myself,” were the words of Cain. God allowed him to stray into oblivion. Cain was tested. He failed.

As many ladies lived unaccompanied by the word of God, that so many got mesmerized by the attractiveness of the cruel, fallen angels of Lucifer. The consequence of free moral agency misapplication. God desires to populate the creation with intelligent, free moral agents. You, as an individual, most definitely know what is appropriate. You desire good things and acquire those things. There are situations we detest. We go to all extent to ensure their impossibility. The things we deprecate, unfortunately, are the things many humans mete out to others. Egotism. Cupidity. Man’s pretensions are quite alarming.

robotblog

                 A robot isn’t a free moral agent, but the offspring of Adam is.

A robot cannot pretend to be anything else. It is programmed for its activities. God wants beings who can receive anointing for deification. Those who, willingly, will decide to follow God’s will are the creatures of His dream. Fall short of His dream and you have become a daydreamer. Any desire outside Christ is a falsehood of reverie. The tragedy is that too many lack the righteousness of Jesus.

If any will do what will be pleasing unto the Lord, he must meditate on, and comply with Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” The present continuous ‘renewing’ is anakainōsis (an-ak-ah’-ee-no-sis) ‘renovation, complete change for the better;’ while ‘transformed’ is metamorphoō (met-am-or-fo’-o) ‘to transform (literally or figuratively “metamorphose”).’

Satan will most certainly run evil thoughts through your mind. A design to make you place the onus of your predicament on God. What Job said in Job 1:21, “….the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD;” is a scriptural anomaly. Was it not Satan who did evil to him? God does not do evil. HE should never be castigated for any misfortune. In James 1:13-27; verses 13-14 read: 13) “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14) But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.” I will always be responsible for all my actions, and you are to take the full responsibility for whatever happens to you.

18_Jb_02_03_RG

Curse God and die,” his wife ill advised.

I have always made sure I never, for any reason, fling an iota of blame at God for any misfortune I find myself in. ‘Tempted’ is the Greek word peirazō (pi-rad’-zo) ‘to test (objectively), that is, endeavor, scrutinize, entice, discipline.’ Put contextually, ‘tempted’ has to do with ‘enticement to sin,’ going by the fact that peirazō as temptation has two grand meanings, ‘solicitation to sin, and trial from providential situation or circumstances.’

God will never be an accomplice to an evil act of sin. The words ‘drawn away’ is exelkō (ex-el’-ko). This is what Thayer Definition says: ‘to draw out, metaphorically: lure forth: in hunting and fishing as game is lured from its hiding place, so man by lure is allured from the safety of self-restraint to sin.’ In James 1:14, the language of the hunting is transferred to the seduction of a harlot.’ From Strong’s Definition: ‘to drag forth, that is, (figuratively) to entice (to sin).’ Sincerely speaking, this is where the generality of mankind is guilty.

At the end of all these trials those who decide to use their free moral agency Christ-like will be deified. Everywhere on earth, it will be god here god there. God, god, god of deified man, gloriously everywhere! Amen.      (…to be concluded…)

WHY WILL GOD ALLOW CERTAIN THINGS? (part three)

XIR84999

The vicissitude of the righteous Job

 

(…continued from part 2)

There is no doubt that the beings who became demons had a way of contacting their Creator. They would rather be fed with lies. They forsook the LORD, their God to their own peril.

Adam was another intelligent person. He was endowed with an immense wisdom. Did the LORD God not show up every evening to commune with the first Adamic couple? Did the LORD not appear well garbed while they sat before their God in stark nakedness? Did Adam’s intelligence prompt him to expect the LORD to show up, in one of those days, with a glorious toga befitting Adam, the lord of the earth? Why would Adam throw the futuristic glorious opportunity on the scrapheap, in a direct opposition to the Maker, only to take sides with a woman who was no less than a walking cadaver? You cannot allow your spouse to separate you from the love of the LORD.

John 10:24, Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Their unbelief had affected their souls. Unbelief is plainly a deviation from God’s desire. God kept them in the darkness of their choice. He cannot dwell together with unbelieving souls. Spiritual immaturity of humanity will view this as a weakness on the part of God, which is not so: for God’s immutability is the proof of His strength. Amen.

                Job. If he had not gone through that harrowing experience, he probably would not have agreed to ventilate Job 40:4, Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth. I can hear someone’s agitation: “You mean God had to take him through that excruciating and debilitating pains just to make him say that?” You have no idea what is at stake here. We are talking about an acquirement of celestial citizenry. God, in His wisdom, has decided that Job had all it took to undergo the trial. Job, fortunately, did not disappoint the LORD God, his God.

ahab-pierced-by-an-arrow

King Ahab paid dearly for rejecting Jehovah

Why will God allow a lying spirit to deceive Ahab in 1Kings 22:22, And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. King Ahab decided to dump the God of his ancestry, the One who made a covenant with faithful Abraham. God does not force anyone to serve Him: He is looking for those who will do John 4:23, But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Ahab, by his action, did call God a liar. A spirit that would deceive Ahab, according to God’s judgment would not be out of place.

sodomgomorrah04

The only family that survived the annihilation of Sodom and Gomorrah

The story of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19:24 reveals, Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 25. And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. What right had a man to force his sexual immorality upon a fellow man? The visitors that Lot thought wise to lavish a comfortable hospitality on are the very ones the evil Sodomites decided to violate, not knowing that they were messing with heavenly visitants. Only if they had known!

Jericho is a type of the world. Jericho means ‘fragrant’; and figuratively it speaks of yareach (yaw-ray’-akh) (or Yrechow): ‘the moon’ and ruwach (roo’-akh) 1. (properly) to blow, i.e. breathe 2. (literally, only) to smell 3. (by implication) perceive 4. (figuratively) to anticipate, enjoy.’ Jericho refused to give off good smell; would not shine and breathe the life that glorifies Jehovah. Joshua, whose name means ‘Jehovah is Saviour’ went round Jericho to preach of the salvation but Jericho would not accept Jehovah. God destroyed it.

204a_JerichoFalls

There’s a reason why Jericho fell

2Thessalonians 2:11, And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” The above punishment will be meted out on those who would worship the Antichrist. Jesus did warn us in the holy writ when He told His disciples in Matthew 24:14, 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. To disbelieve the word of God is tantamount to calling God a liar! They shunned the truth. They will be fed with the lies of the one whom they believed: the enemies, that is.     (…to be concluded…)
