CATHOLICISM AND MARY (X)

 Outer piety that supports scriptural vitiation!

(…continued from part nine…)

(X)          A cursory look at these Catholic priests, Bishops and Cardinals no doubt whips up a glaring piety. The thing is: among the several enthroned dead Popes, how many of them will be accorded seats of thrones with the twenty-four elders around the celestial throne of the Majesty? Having served the heinous inclinations of Satanism so willingly, would they have any place before the thrice holy God? Christians do ask me, totally confused at these things, “Do they know or realize what they’re doing?” My answer has always been, “Most definitely they do!” They work in cahoots with the designs of Satanism which culminates in the eventual installation of the Antichrist. You have to be born again to be a partaker of celestial bliss, right? Does Catholicism make this John 3:3 didacticism a matter of soteriological reality? Catholicism would rather glorify Mariology than make Romans 10:9-10 the main focal point of God’s Church business.

Christ’s or Antichrist’s vicegerent?

                They know what they are doing, hence, there is no forgiveness for them when Christ comes. Every pope sits on a throne. Why? Each pope sees himself as a viceroy of the Lord Jesus, who clearly states, “……My kingdom is not of this world……” [John 18:36]. The word ‘world’ in the Greek is kosmos (kos’-mos) ‘1. orderly arrangement, i.e. decoration 2. (by implication) the world including its inhabitants.’ What Satan did immediately he became the ‘god of this world’ is to rearrange, redefine the world he had won for his nefarious dream. Jesus is not part of this arrangement. He knew He was coming back to right all these evil wrong doings of Satanism. The regent is the Church, His mystical body. Since no pope is Christ’s regent, they, each one of them, sits in place of the Antichrist, who will rule the world. And it is for the same reason Catholic Church sponsored the so called ‘Christian War’. We know that the only one that Christ, with His Church, will eventually fight is against none other than Satan’s son, the Antichrist, the son of perdition.

                Ask yourself what on earth will goad a Pope to kneel or bow before the statue of Mary in prayer? Why should the chant of “Hail Mary” be so prominent than the worship of Jesus? The use of the rosary, is it not superfluity of the naughtiness of vain repetition, as warned by the Lord Himself? With an uncanny ineffability of pride, Catholics religiously brandish an unscriptural rosary.

Saint Bernard got his Marian shot of milk!

                Another story says Catholic Mary exposed her breast to Saint Bernard, and shot milk into his eye. Presently, people say, while receiving milk from the heavenly Mother, Saint Bernard was initiated into supreme consciousness and adopted as the son of God and Mary. The more medieval wording was that Mary filled him with all divine graces and purified all his sins. Did Mary have to die to perform such deeds of divinity? There is not one scriptural record of Mary’s power of initiation into any ecumenical assistance. The Jerusalem Church did not pray to the Madonna. Mary did not utter one word of prophecy or an encouragement to the nascent Church during the Upper Room inauguration. It was Peter who spoke, having been reinstated as an Apostle of the expected Church. Where was Mary at the first ever Church Council of Jerusalem, found in The Book of Acts Of Apostles 15:1-21, to iron out the Church doctrine? It was James, the biological brother of Jesus and the pastor of the Jerusalem Church who made the final ecumenical speech. None heard of Mary.   

Catholic saint worship

 Catholic Saint Worship

                   An egregious uncouthness of Scripture vitiation establishes the proclivous authentication of Catholicism. Her wanton disregard for God’s protocol is evidenced by the proclivous unsupportive canonical additions. In year 995 AD, Pope John XV spoke ex cathedra on the canonization of dead saints. Quite inconformity with Romans 1:7, which reads, “To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.” The very second you become born again you are a saint of Jesus. The word ‘saint,’ hagios, (hag’-ee-os) in Greek, means: ‘sacred (physically pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially consecrated).’ The reason is quite simple in that YAHWEH TSIDQENUW, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS of Jeremiah 23:6 is actually the Christ as stated in Philippians 3:9. Colossians 3:4 says, “When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” The recipients of Romans 1:7 were Christians who were still alive on terra firma! “Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints…… [1Corinthians 1:2].

LESSONS TO BE LEARNT FROM EASTER (i.e. PASCHAL or PASSOVER) part 2

the-Biblical-Pesach

 The covering blood of the covenant saved them from destruction

 (…continued from the 1st part…)              The number eight stands for a new beginning. As He walked with the three, there were 4, which means creation. He told the 3 (scriptural denotation of the Trinitarian perfect manifestation of the Godhead) “…tarry ye here, and watch with me. 39 And he went a little further (Matthew 26:38-39). He moved on to stand alone, representing the number 1. One is the unity of the Godhead. In all things, Jesus takes preeminence (Colossians 1:8). He is the One. The Almighty. Jesus used 8, 3 and 1 to asseverate the divine proclamation of what He was about do: The creation of a new beginning for Adam by the joint participation of the Godhead. They could not assist in this one-time-creation prayer. Too bad! An angel came all the way from heaven to give a spiritual galvanism to Jesus: for the work must go on! Only Jesus fits in perfect Divinity to take on the Passover insurance coverage.

worthy

 JESUS, THE LAMB OF GOD! Worthy He is!

Mohammed’s teaching on the crucifixion is quite an aberration. He did not mention the names of the apostatising disciples in the Qur’an of Allah. The historical arrest of Jesus saw Him with His eleven apostles. Which one of them did not accept Him as the Christ? Mohammed does not understand what the Hebrews call Christ else he would not have given this sobriquet to Jesus alone, eleven times, in the Qur’an. It is mashiyach (maw-shee’-akh) ‘1. Anointed 2. usually a consecrated person (as a king, priest, or saint) 3. (specifically) the Messiah, the Anointed One.’

The Mashiyach is the expected Saviour King, the holy One from heaven (John 3:13; 1:18; 6:46 & Proverbs 30:4). If God is the only Saviour, then the Mashiyach is equally God! Mohammed does not mention Peter, Paul, James or Timothy. I understand, from experience, that Paul, especially, is detested by Islamic scholars. He dwells extensively on the deity of Jesus, his Saviour, LORD and God; teaches like no one, the mystery of the Church. He cannot be their friend. Which one of Matthew, Andrew, John, James the less, Bartholomew, Philip, Thomas, Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite or the seventy apostatized to the Islamic faith?

 

Exod2w

God’s children are safe in HIS hands

It is not possible! They knew that Jesus was the One “….which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (2) (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) (3) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. (4) And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full (1John 1:1-4). Amen.

two disciples

These two disciples saw the historical risen Christ

Two disciples on their way to Emmaus saw Him, the risen Christ! The soldiers were bribed to spread the falsehood which has caught the jaws of Mohammed’s Islam. He was seen by many for forty days after His resurrection. He told the disciples to get ready for the commencement of the Church which became a historical eventuality on the day of Pentecost. On falsehood, therefore, hangs Islam when it comes to the Bible. Mohammed, you should have left the Bible alone! But I thank God that you did not. It has exposed the falsehood of your Qur’an. Amen!

They ate the Passover in readiness to leave for the Promised Land

It is quite apposite for Jesus to make Galilee the last rendezvous. Galilee means ‘circle or circuit.’ Since the errant days of Eden, the Devil has taken over the infamous affairs of this sinful world. The vicious cycle of Satanic governance had continued unabated. God’s covenant had been renewed. It is still with Israel. Jesus said, “I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” The Church started in Israel. Israelites were the first disciples, the born again ones of the upper room and, from all indications most were among the first 3,000 converts. The uniqueness of Galilee congregation was His declaration of: All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth (Matthew 28:18). The vicious cycle of Satanism came under the feet of Jesus and of course, the body of HIM, the Christians! Hallelujah!

“…the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep” (John 10:11).

You can be born again and be transformed into God’s child. Say this prayer of salvation: “Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I believe that Jesus is LORD and I receive Him as my LORD and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen”. Maintain the new birth by: 1. Praying always (in the name of Jesus) 1Thessalonians 5:17. 2) Read the Bible everyday (Joshua 1:8). 3) Go to Church regularly (Hebrews 10:25). 4. Tell others about Jesus (Mark 16:15).

          New Jerusalem Temple coming down to the new earth of Jehovah

That true greatness is not found in individual’s greatness, but in the individual’s ability to make others great is incontestable. The majestic splendour of God will manifest when the view of the new world is dotted with gods. The Holy Spirit anointed inhabitants of the new earth will metamorphose into gods, each of us, probably, will represent a particular splendid radiance of Jehovah. Existing around the earth will be gods of divine radiance like the stars of the dark sky. Each of the billions showing off different glorious radiance of Divinity. A spectacle to behold!

Moses saw God

                             Moses saw the back side of the LORD God

God’s true splendor cannot be captured by these billions of gods. So, what is going to happen is that each blessed one will have to change from one colour to another effulgence of divine brilliance, and each hue will not look really like others, simply because this is what God truly is. Unfathomable! As we depict HIS glory, so we will be falling down in worship of the Most High in Spirit and in truthfulness of it. This is a unique phenomenon! This mundane show of His glory will continue for eternity. His ability to deify His created beings is the true greatness of Him, who was, who is, and is to come, the LORD, the LORD God Almighty! Every available space on earth will reflect the true glory of HIS Person. This is what Lucifer, the erstwhile head of the angels, bestially craved for.

The Devil’s detestation of Christians is based on the fact that we will inherit the LORD God Himself. We are the heirs of the eternal God. Our heirship is from eternity to eternity. Like the LORD God, we are eternally good; and the diminishing returns of gerontological deficiency can never creep into our glorious life. Christ’s life is ours. The long we live the more glory of Him who sits eternally on the throne we exude.

When we meet to commune, it is the communion of Divinity. When we greet one another it is a holy greetings of Divinity. Our only focal entity will be the Father and the Lamb. Egoism would have long been thrown into hell, where it rightly belongs.

10-jealousy-4-728

Satan egoistically communed with himself in his quest for divinity. He shunned the council of the Holy Spirit. The irrelevance of the Holy Spirit for him, rendered him irrelevant. He lost eternal blissful existence before the Creator. This great angel had lost it forever. He, therefore, in his maniacal self, is doing all he can to push man away from this unprecedented glory that God has planned for mankind. He is doing all he can to disparage John 3:3. He is fighting tooth and nail to keep man from actualizing Romans 10:9-10. He knows what a regenerated one stands to inherit. He knows what a massive second chance humanity is endowed with. He, consequently, set up religions, myriads of them, to marginalize the efficacious truth of spiritual regeneration inherent in Christianity.

Lucifer has injected the foetus of every matrix with a certain venom that enhances your disparaging stance of Jesus. That deceptive potion gives one a spiritual taste bud that craves for the religious meals provided by those beliefs. Before you know it you are already believing in the Eastern didactic karmic reality. You are sold to Masonic cultic way of life. The jihadic offer of 72 virgins of Islamic religious stance begin to appeal to your palate. The ontological paradigm of your ancestral belief, the custodians of which are the demonic familiar spirits, continue to fascinate your psyche. The relevance of divine counsel of the Holy Spirit: its repudiation, is the reason for this satanic design

mt-sinai-drawing                          God spoke directly with the Israelites on Mount Sinai

The Spirit has sent so many messages into your heart. Be wise. Apprehend the relevance of His messages. Get born again. Belong to Jesus, and you are settled eternally. Let us see the biblical relativities.

*True greatness= John 14:12, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”

*New earth= 2Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Revelation 21:1-5, 23. Verse one says, And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” The word ‘new’ is the Greek kainos (kai-nos’): ‘new (especially in freshness); it speaks of renovation.’ Our earth will be renovated and made more spacious.

moses and the glory ofthe lord

Moses squinched when he saw the back side of Jehovah

* God’s true splendour = Isaiah 48:12-13.

*Satan communed with himself = Isaiah 14:14, I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

*Lucifer has injected the foetus = Revelation 12:4, 9, & 12 and verse 9 is, And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

*The Spirit has sent messages= Matthew 12:31-32; verse 31 says, Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. Confer Hebrews 10:26.   (Conclusion)

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…)

Angels married the daughters of men

The first thing Lucifer lost was his sense. His sense of reasoning got impaired. God, the Creator, is the first to establish the sense of reasoning. All forms of reasoning must conform to His Logos. Why? He is the Almighty! All-knowing! All-over! Only from Him does true wisdom flow. An impaired wisdom requires correction. A wielder of wrong notion is very circumspect, suspecting every correction and the communicator of it; believing an attempt to rob him of his ‘treasured’ understanding. Lucifer, hence, would not approach the High and Lofty Jehovah with his problem. He was lost forever!

The evil in him posed, “Why should I be the only one to lose?” And in his satanic resolve, “I’ll inflict this evil on every living entity”. He raised the first ever insurrection: in heaven. This attempt cost him his estate (Jude 1:6). He had lost forever: his leadership role of the celestial praise and worship, his ‘light bearing’ office and his archangel leadership. Too much to lose when opposed to the Creator! When the spirit of defiance leads you to a loss, and you decide to continue to wage the war of defiance, this is a fully blown danger of self-destruction. Lucifer became the most dangerous being in the universe. His ability to cajole the third of the mammoth population of the heavenly host evinced the parlous and perilous stance of his existence among unwary men. And by the time this great angel had taught the beings of this earth his ways -at the time of his fall from heaven- they became foul demons (read my post DEMONISM https://hoojewale.wordpress.com/2016/04/30/demonism-part-one …).

He beguiled Adam’s wife who made her husband to display an egregious stupidity which has turned men into querulous beings of criticism who are asking questions like, “Is there really a Creator, and do we need one at all?” The Hindustan’s is “Are you sure there’s no rapport between God and Satan, hence, good partners?” How can there be hell!?” When man lost his sense through Lucifer’s incursion, he also lost the Light of knowledge which in turn severed him from the true worship of Jehovah. Severance from the Almighty makes one hell bound. Cain lost out because he followed Lucifer. Knowing fully well that man was made to be a worshipper, Satan pointed out the sun to replace the True Light so as to make up for the sacerdotal vacuum which sin had created.

In the same vein, symbolism took over the given Word of God. Is it not the norm to see people flashing two fingers these days? If only they know what cultic symbolism that portrays. Two fingers of a hand is the compass. The two fingers of the other hand is the square. Intersect the two ‘v’ shaped fingers and you have an abstraction of the occult star of David. What does it mean to flash the compass and the square? It means that man is the sole architect of his own life, needing no God of the Bible!

God’s Unapproved Angelic Marriage to Daughters of Men Proved Disastrous

So it was very easy in Genesis chapter six for the girls of the Adamic race to fall in love with fallen angels resulting in an unholy alliance which gave birth to a freakish species of half-angel half-man beings; and this is what the ‘G’ in Masonic compass and square stands for: generative. Those giants were an act of obviation of the inevitable coming of the Messiah. Those giants would never go, neither would their offspring, to heaven, having in them the seed of a doomed fallen angel. The word ‘giants’ in Genesis 6:4 is nphiyl (nef-eel’) (or nphil {nef-eel’}) ‘(properly) a feller, i.e. a bully or tyrant.’ They were the tares that Lucifer planted. God would not be frustrated. He destroyed all of them in the great deluge. Why would God create what He cannot, or would not want to, or be able to tame, is the 64 billion dollars question.

They roamed the desert because they could not show faith

One important truth is that when the Bible is silent on an issue, it is quite unwise to give any exegesis on it. A proper study of the Bible does reveal a whole lot to feed man’s curiosity as it pertains to His ways or acts. Is He the Almighty, having a certain potency even science cannot compute? How powerful will a One who could, as Exodus 15:8 reveals, “And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together…;” Job 4:9, “By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed”; and also, “…and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked” (Isaiah 11:4) be?

The Glossolalia (3rd Part)

Continued from part two

Jesus has clearly informed us to expect signs of new tongues. If, as some want to teach, that glōssa is no longer of His Church, why should glōssa ‘follow Christians very near to them’? And why should it be an attendant result to their spirituality? Two signs are mentioned; if the speaking in tongues is an outdated phenomenon, what about the casting out of evil spirits? Are there no more demons, are their activities no longer operational? Those who ‘believe,’ in the verse above, are the Christians. As long as we continue to play the roles of His ambassadors the signs must follow our Christian existence. Amen!

I remember the first time I spoke in tongues. I was seated before my landlord then. He was a cruel, sadistic individual. He was vehemently opposed to my decision to stop the unnecessary imposition of the fee meant for sweeping the compound. One tenant, whose children did the sweeping, was enjoying freedom this imposition. I told him what he knew, that my wards could easily take care of the domestic chore. The landlord bluntly refused. Righteous indignation welled out of me. I just let it out as the Spirit gave the utterance, and, “shhgrr,” was all I whispered. He had no answer for the spiritual encounter. From then I had become, in his house, an untouchable tenant!

people-praying-for-revival3

Three times I had to answer the altar call to receive the in filling of the Holy Spirit. After the third time I decided to believe that the LORD had already given me the gift: that its manifestation was just a matter of time. One day while praying at home after our family evening devotion, I sensed that, for the past two days, I had, for a second of each day, had my tongue changed. On the day number three it was an unanticipatedly outpouring of the new tongues. It was so glorious. I used to think that this glōssa was a secretly arranged act, expecting somebody in The Household Of God Church (my local assembly) to call me one day and to tell me, “All you have to say is, “##!!@@*%$##, and you’re welcome into the world of speaking in tongues.” I thank God that glossolalia is real! I can speak in tongues for more than eight hours and would not be tired. This is where the power of the Christian is latently resident! The Spirit of God Himself gives you the very utterance needed, the most appropriate word that God wants hear; He gives the code of authority over demonic attacks.

The administration of the Church is so important to the Builder of it as 1Corinthians 12:28 puts it thus: “And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.” Speaking in tongues is one of them for it is one of the ways by which God participates in authorization of the verbal strength of His glorified children. Amen.

In the twenty-ninth to the thirtieth verse Paul probes rhetorically with: “Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 30) Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?” “But,” Paul caps it all in the 31st verse, “covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.” Speaking in tongues is one of the gifts, I believe. Selah!

meet-the-person-the-holy-spirit

Christians do not realize the kind of power they have been fortified with. The Holy Spirit came like a dove at the baptism of Jesus, simply because, as John’s name (the grace of God) is defined, Jesus came to broker peace between God and man. On the day of Pentecost, HE came as fire, to consume the nefarious machinations of the enemy. Acts 1:8, But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. The word ‘power’ is the Greek, dunamis (doo’-nam-is): ‘1. Force 2. (specially) miraculous power 3. (usually by implication) a miracle itself {literally or figuratively}.’ Disappointingly, some Christians even believe that we cannot bind Satan. Too bad, we have so many ill-informed Christians. Who is the enemy that Jesus refers to, contextually, in Matthew 12:29, when He said, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. Read from verse 25 and Satan is the enemy.

Do not live a weak Christian life, desire earnestly to speak in tongues.    

              Get born again to receive this awesome gift. Say this sinners’ prayer: “Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”

If there is power in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21), then of necessity, it behoved God to put an efficacious delegated authority in the tongue of His saved saints, on the day of Pentecost, in the upper room. It had to be an upper room owing to the fact that the energizing power to speak in tongues come from above and only to those born again (i.e. begat from celestial above).

Glossolalia, according to Collins Dictionary, is defined as: ‘an utterance, partly or wholly unintelligible, believed by some to be produced under the influence of ecstatic religious emotion and conceived to be a manifestation of the Holy Ghost: practised in certain Christian churches, usually called Pentecostal’. It also has a definition of: ‘babbling in a nonexistent language’. This is Holy Ghost prattle i.e. children of God ecstatically prattling affectionately before the LORD, their heavenly Father, in a most familiar speech – to the Most High. Amen.The word glossolalia comes from the Greek glōssa (gloce-sah’): ‘the tongue; by implication a language (specifically one naturally unacquired)’.

Acts-2-1-13         For unscriptural reasons some denominations hold an aversive conviction for the glossolalia, teaching that it ceased with the demise of the founding apostolic fathers of the Church. Quite jaw-droppingly, The Jehovah’s Witness people will quote, by pulling out “…whether there be tongues, they shall cease…” from 1Corinthians 13:8, forgetting the tenth verse: “But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.” The perfection of Christ’s reign has not taken place yet, or has it? Another argument stems from the fact that at the Pentecost the Holy Spirit gave them utterances of known languages and not this gibbering nonsense. This was no doubt, a reversal of Babel, when God confused the Nimrod (Antichrist) led building for Satan. Here, at Pentecost, Jesus had built His Church!

The HOLY SPIRIT is a PERSONAGE

Act 2:1-13 (1) “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. 5) And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. 6) Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7) And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? 8) And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? 9) Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Powine”, and Asia, 10) Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11) Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. 12) And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this? 13) Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine”.

glossa

Speaking in tongues is only for born again Christians. Every Christian is commissioned to “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:” [Mat 28:19]. Jesus made it very easy for them. He brought the nations of the world to their doorstep, where they turned three thousand of the people into His disciples. The word ‘teach’, mathēteuō (math-ayt-yoo’-o) means: intransitively ‘to become a pupil; transitively to disciple, that is, enrol as scholar.” On their return to their various countries they will, no doubt, teach others to follow Jesus. Now that souls have been won to Jesus it is time to open the vocal cords, in the gibberish glossolalia, in holy worship.

Act 10:45-47, (45) “And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. 46) For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 47) Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?” If Gentiles received this power from the Holy Ghost, because it is His work, why should He stop giving the gift just because the apostolic pillars have died? Show me the scriptural proof, if there is one. In 1Corinthians chapter 12, verse 4 makes us understand that: “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.” Verse 10 enumerates some of the gifts: “To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:” are the eight other gifts, faith included, obsolete as well (not forgetting: every gift is given by the same Spirit)? In the Book of 1Corinthians 12:31 the apostle, Paul, taught, “But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.” A Jehovah’s Witness man pointed out the immorality of ‘covet’. I did not waste time in bringing him to the understanding that the King James Version was written in the Shakespearean style of Elizabethan flowery English. ‘Covet earnestly’ is one Greek word: zēloō (dzay-lo’-o): ‘to burn with zeal; to have warmth of feeling for or against.’

HIS TESTIMONY (Part V)

mighty God

The Messiah and His followers.

(Continued from part four)        “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it”. Why would He deem Himself qualified to enunciate those words of John 14:14? The answer is in John 1:1-4. The preposition ‘in’ is en (en): ‘a (fixed) position (in place, time or state), and (by implication) instrumentality (medially or constructively), i.e. a relation of rest’. ‘Name’ is the Greek onoma (on’-om-ah): ‘a “name” (literally or figuratively), (authority, character)’. The acceptance of any prayer sent heavenwards must be channelled through the instrumentality of the name, which has its sphere of location only in Jesus. The assertive proclamation is backed by the promise, “I will do it”. He says this to bring His divine nature into a relationship with us.

                john-14-6-seek-jesus-not-religion-reclaimed-barnwood-message-block_grande

Jesus said, in John 6:63, “…the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” The word ‘spirit,’ pneuma (pnyoo`-mah) means: ‘1. a current of air, i.e. breath (blast) or a breeze 2. (by analogy or figuratively) a spirit 3. (humanly) the rational soul 4. (by implication) vital principle, mental disposition, etc. 5. (superhumanly) an angel, demon 6. (divinely) God, Christ’s spirit, the Holy Spirit.’ The 5th definition does not fit in this case. Jesus is saying here that the words of His mouth is divine and the vital principle of life. This testimony reminds one of Luke 16:17 “And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail. Jesus’ word has the same strength as God’s law; which takes us to Psalm 12:6 “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

                The word ‘pure’ is tahowr (taw-hore’) (or tahor {taw-hore’}) ‘pure (in a physical, chemical, ceremonial or moral sense).’ ‘Purified’ is zaqaq (zaw-kak’) ‘to strain, (figuratively) extract, clarify.’ What is the psalmist saying here? Before God utters any word He looks into the eternity past, present occurrences and the eternity to come, making sure that absolutely nothing, be it fashion, modernity, philosophy, religion, kingdom or culture will ever make His word obsolete. Seven is God’s number and it is of perfection. God’s utterances are eternally perfect. So, when Jesus says that His words are spirit that have life, it expresses eternal divinity. The word ‘life,’ zoe, is God’s kind of life.

IAM+John+14+6

John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”. ‘Way’, hodos, means: ‘road, path or destiny’. If Jesus is my destiny then nothing, absolutely nothing can obviate my route to heaven. Alētheia (al-ay’-thi-a), the word for ‘truth’, is my favourite of the three (way, truth & life), and by extension, means ‘reality’. Jesus declares His Divinity! “I am the real One. The only genuine incarnation of God”. Amen. ‘Life’ is the Greek interpretation of zōē. If One Man is the way, truth and life that leads ultimately to paradise assemblage of the saints of the Most High, it then follows that Jesus is the most enigmatic Personage to ever trod the surface of terra firma!

give life

Johannine account of: “All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them”, [John 10:8] does include religious leaders like Confucius, Krishna, Buddha and Baal as religious rascals. Most definitely, those who reared their religious heads after His ascension in the persons of Prophet Mohammad, Roman Catholic Popery, not forgetting, Theudas and Judas of Galilee (Acts 5:36-37). Theudas (thyoo-das’) means “God-given”. We know that God did not give Theudas his leadership role -he stole it. Judas means praise. Galilee means: ‘a native of Galilaia (gal-il-ah’-yah) which is: Galilaea (that is, the heathen circle)’. The activities of these people did not give any praise to Jehovah. They formed a vicious circle of religion. While some stole without the knowledge of their victims, the others were vicious in their religious armed robberies.

“If ye love me”, Jesus voices, “keep my commandments”; is the conclusion He makes in John 14:15. ‘Keep’, tēreō (tay-reh’-o): From teros (a watch); means: ‘to guard (from loss or injury, properly by keeping the eye upon’. Jesus told them to guard with all their hearts something emanating from His very Person: commandments, which in the Greek is entolē (en-tol-ay’): ‘injunction, that is, an authoritative prescription’. We know that every commandment of Jesus points to heaven. Why He would personalize commandments that take one to heaven is something to ponder on, no doubt. One of the commandments is found in John 3:3, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” His testimonies pervade eternity.

Get born of God, from above. Say this prayer, (meaning it unfeignedly): “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!”   (Concluded)

ARE THERE MORE CHRISTIANS THAN OTHER BELIEVERS? (Part One)

Who is a Christian, one born by Christian parents, the one who just decides to change faith and starts going to Church or a one who likes going to Church to worship God? A Christian is a person who has received Jesus as his Lord and Saviour i.e. a born again person. A Christian is a follower, a saint of Jesus, who follows Jesus having made up his mind and knowing fully well whom he has decided to follow.

A Christian is the one who has believed in John 3:3, having heard the gospel of regeneration, then, he took the necessary Romans 10:9-10 ritual of spiritual regeneration. Praying the prayer of salvation, truly, from his heart, the Holy Spirit of God endorses his sonship of God. His name is written in the book of life. This is the Christian.

Roman Catholic Church alone boasts of one billion, two hundred million (1.2bn) ‘Hail Mary’ chanting members. The other Churches of Orthodoxy, Methodist, Anglican, Lutheran, Presbyterian and Adventist, each with its traditionally approved mode of worship, will probably account for maybe something over half a billion. Baptist, White garment churches and the teeming Pentecostalism, and their vigorous ‘hallelujah!’ chants, could also boast of a billion more adherents. 3 1/2 billion church goers form half of the global populace. Looks very much like Christians have a numerical advantage over other religious worshippers.

In the Book of Luke 18:8, Jesus rhetorically asked, “…Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? This is an indictment on mankind; the only ingredient He needed to accept an earthling spiritually into His Kingdom, faith, will be lacking. ‘Faith’, in Greek, is: pistis (pis’-tis) ‘persuasion, that is, credence; moral conviction (of religious truth, or the truthfulness of God or a religious teacher), especially reliance upon Christ for salvation; abstractly constancy in such profession; by extension the system of religious (Gospel) truth itself’.

hinduism

Jesus has always employed the concise words as a Catechizer; He warned prophetically, of ‘many’ in Matthew 7:22-23, (22) “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? v23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”. Many, not few, will be cast into hell! Many, not few, are evil doing, enemies of God, unfortunately. Why would the Lord of heaven, in His Omniscience, open His mouth to say that, “I never knew you”? It is simply because He sees only those who operate within His word. God’s word is sacrosanct, and anyone who rebels against His-seven-times-tried word (Psalm 12:6) is dead, cut off from His sacred presence.

 

tao

Matthew 7:13-14 read, v13) “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: v14) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it”. This is indubitably categorical! The word ‘way’ is: hodos (hod-os’): ‘a road; by implication a progress (the route, act or distance); figuratively a mode, means or lifestyle’. The spiritual lifestyles of several billions are quite offensive to the Divinity. Apōleia (ap-o’-li-a), is the Greek word for ‘destruction’ and it means: ‘ruin or loss (physical, spiritual or eternal) in hell’. ‘Life’ is zōē (dzo-ay’) Thayer Definition: ‘life a. of the absolute fulness of life, both essential and ethical, which belongs to God, and through him both to the hypostatic “logos” and to Christ in whom the “logos” put on human nature b. life real and genuine’. (…to be concluded…)

WHICH JESUS? (part two)

 1a

YESHUA HA’ MASHIACH – JESUS IS THE MESSIAH

 

Continued from 1st part.

Say not “Trinity”: desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs”, concludes Qur’an 4:171. None but Allah is the saviour (Al-E-Imran i.e. 3:135); but Jesus is the only prophet called Messiah, eleven times, in Qur’an (3:45; 4:157, 171, 172; 5:17, 72, 75; 9:30 & 31). No doubt Mohammed did not know that Messiah, of Hebrew origin, is mashıyach (maw-shee’-akh), meaning: ‘one anointed to be king, priest, the Deliverer or Saviour!’ So, which Jesus is the Qur’an peddling? In 4:156-158 the Qur’an calls the Bible, which is the most perfectly documentation of God’s protocol, a lie. It did so by debunking the veracity contained in it concerning the crucifixion of Jesus. Which book is spreading lies the Bible or the Qur’an? In As-Saff, the 61st chapter the 6th verse quotes, “And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said: “O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me, and giving Glad Tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad.” But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said, “this is evident sorcery!” Could the Jesus of the Bible call Himself the messenger of Allah?

isis-semiramis-comparison         Would this same Jesus be telling Israelites that another prophet, Ahmad is coming from the same Allah! The 14th verse says His disciples were divided in faith and part of them decided to follow and to be witness of Allah. Ask yourself why Jehovah is alien to the Qur’an, and why Allah is not found in His corpus of revelation, the Bible, that is. God, in Exodus 3:14, gave His name as, “…I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you”. In verse 15 He made it known, “…this [is] my name for ever, and this [is] my memorial unto all generations”. “…but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them” of chapter 6:3, tells us what ‘I AM THAT I AM’ is. If verse 5 says it is God’s name for ever from generation to every generation, where cometh Allah, the one to whom Mohammed is his prophet?

 lord-krishna-latest-hd-widdescreen-mobile-imges-hd

                                      Does Krishna not sound like CHRIST?

  Show me any historical fact or documentation that makes Peter, Andrew, John, Bartholomew or any of the twelve or by extension the seventy who ever mentioned Allah of the Mohammedan Quraysh of Mecca. They even swear that it is in the Bible! One day, during our Saturday evangelism I opened John 14:16-26 to repudiate this untruthfulness a young boy had for years been fed with. Verse 26, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you”. Could or can Ahmad (aka Mohammad) teach all things. “Do you think this is your Mohammad?” The boy shook his head to give his negating answer.

the-new-age-christ

                                                     A ‘New Age’ Jesus of the occult

The Jesus of the Bible says categorically in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”. Further down in verse 9 in response to Philip’s question, “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?” It can never be the Jesus of the Mohammedan Qur’an who declared, “I and my Father are one” in John 10:30. The word ‘way’, hodus, also means ‘destiny’. How can a mere prophet be man’s destiny? ‘Truth’, alethia, speaks of ‘reality’ by which Jesus is revealed as the genuine One. ‘Zoe’ is the Greek word for ‘life’; God’s kind of life. How can a mere man possess God’s life, be the real Member of the Godhead and man’s destiny? This most definitely is not the Jesus that Mohammed’s prophecy calls Isa. No way!

ifa-worship

The Ifa oracle of divination

Ifa worshippers believe in the sonship of “Olódù” with Àrè”. They, by their spiritual, fruits, deny the power thereof. The Jesus of esotericism is known by designates of Grandmaster, Wise one, Avatar, the expected one etc. Listen to them as they teach where they gather. They offer sacrifices, a particular garment must be worn and the mode of worship taking a posture quite alien to Jesus Christ of the Bible. Some commence prayer sessions thus: “Jah! Jah! Jah! Jesus Christ! Holy Michael! O! Lord…!” Jah, I know and, of course, Jesus; but what scripture makes ‘Holy Michael’ an intercessor? This spiritual anomaly hangs an ominous question mark on the exclamatory ‘O! Lord!’ The spiritual smuggler of angel Michael’s veneration is the masquerading ‘Jesus’!

image19

If you wish to belong to the true Jesus of Jehovah. Pray this prayer to get born again. “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!(Concluded)
