THE END-TIME MARK OF THE ANTICHRIST (IV)

The prince of this world is judged (John 16:11).

(…continued from part 3…)

(IV)      The rapture. It exempts the Christians from the great tribulation. Amen! Lego (le’-ğō), meaning: “1. (properly) to “lay” forth. 2. (figuratively) to relate. 3. (by implication) to mean;’ is the Greek word for ‘they shall say’ of 1Thessalonians 5:3. ‘Peace’ is eirene (ei-ree’-nee) ‘1. peace. 2. (by implication) prosperity;’ while ‘safety’ isasphaleia (a-sfa’-lei-a), meaning:security.’ Why would Paul assure Christians in the succeeding 4th and 5th verses that the tribulation should not ‘overtake’ them? ‘Overtake’ of verse 4 is katalambanō (kat-al-am-ban’-o) ‘to lay hold of; to seize upon, take possession of; of evils overtaking one, of the last day overtaking the wicked with destruction, of a demon about to torment one.’

Emmaus bound disciples met with the risen Jesus

                                                                                                                                                               Reverend Chris Okotie taught that the three and half years of Jesus’ ministry will account for the first three and half years of the Antichrist. This happens to be the reason why he must of Divine decree, toe the line of peace, if the Antichrist must deceive the world of his salvific mission. Prophet Daniel asked “How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?” The next seventh verse of Daniel chapter 12 had the angelic answer, “for a time, times, and a half.” Three and half years! Revelation 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. Why should the fatidic ‘for a time, and times, and half a time’ be given in reference to the ‘woman’? It is simply because of what the ‘woman’ is; it is the Greek gune (ǰ ï-nee’) ‘a woman, (specially) a wife.’ Christians constitute the Bride of Christ, a woman. Revelation 11:3; 12:6 and 13:7 all point to an eschatological the three and a half years. 

                Of veridical perception is Satan’s title as the god of the world’s system. He wants to be worshipped. He will get this crave in the seven years of the tribulation. Revelation 13:15-17 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16) And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. 17) And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

TRIBULATION!

                The verb, ‘causeth’ is poieo (poi-ye’-ō): ‘to make or do.’ It properly refers to a single act thus differing from prasso (pras’-sō): ‘1. to practice, i.e. perform repeatedly or habitually. 2. (by implication) to execute, accomplish, etc. 3. (specially) to collect (dues), fare (personally). Remember that Jesus teaches that when all these things are happening, it is really not the end. The taking of the mark of the Beast will be a one-time affair of after the rapture, and never, as the Scripture reveals, before we, the born-again Christians, are taken out of the turbulence, which will be wreaked upon the people who are left behind.

                The antichrist cannot exercise his wickedness on the Bride of Jesus. It will be tantamount to carrying out a physical sexual rape on God’s wife. Who will allow that? Certainly not God! The Antichrist cannot touch the Christians simply because we are the body of Christ, the Second Member of the Godhead. He has no authorization to touch us.    

We will be in heaven all through the (3 ½ years) of tribulation.

                We are the spiritual phenomenon! The physical representation of the Christ. How can we be subjected to bestial worship? It will be unfair to some of us who would lack enough faith to face the Antichrist. The truth is that our continued existence on earth together with this son of perdition will harm the lawless one, so, greatly. One angry effusive torrent of the glossolalia ma so kakada na hashasha landia waka!– will blind and overwhelm him. His father, Satan, has no answer to what the Holy Spirit pours forth from our tongues! Two captains will not be suffered to dwell here at the same time. Heaven will be too happy to host us for just three and a half years.  

Folks, this is why you just must be born again (John 3:7) before your earthly time is up! Pray the prayer of all prayers: the one that gets you born again. Are you ready? It must come from the core of your heart, and believing every word. Here we go; say:

Dear heavenly Father, I come to you now, in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sins. I believe that You raised Him from the dead (for my justification). I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord, and I receive Him as my Lord and Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!

THE END-TIME MARK OF THE ANTICHRIST (III)

(…continued from part 2…)

(III)      Prophet Daniel was the first to reveal the emergence of the apotheotic Antichrist. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. 25) And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time [Daniel 7:24-25]. This impiteous son of the incorrigible Lucifer will, in all probability, ostend a sadomasochistic proclivity. There is nothing stopping him from not being a homosexually oriented beast. He will mirror the egregious warped mentality of Satan, the Devil, his evil father. Isa 37:23; 2Thess 2:4; Rev 13:5; Rev 13:6; Rev 13:11.    

Daniel the prophetic interpreter of dreams

                Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Seventy weeks turned out, prophetically, to be a day for one year. 70 times 7= 490 years. Do you know that exactly four hundred and eighty-three years of Daniel’s Prophecy, Jesus ascended unto heaven after resurrection? Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times [Daniel 9:25]. This comes to 69 weeks or (69 multiplied by 7) 483 years i.e. seven years short of the prophetic 70 weeks.

The Antichrist and his horned, deceptive prophet.

                He will champion a global armistice: the Antichrist. Prophet Daniel recorded this in the 27th verse of the 9th chapter of his Book, And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.Forsooth, I find it hard to believe that many Bible commentaries ascribe the actor of this covenant to Jesus, the Messiah. This is unquestionably the Antichrist. Remember the prophetic warning of Matthew chapter 24? Verse 15 reminds of Daniel’s “abomination of the desolation; verse 21 predicts “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Seven is the number of perfection: God’s number.

                One entity stands diametrically opposed to the Most High. His son of perdition is the consummate evil. Put together the cruel likes of Cain, Nimrod, Antiochus, Kali, Abacha, Idi Amin, Hitler and Nero. The aggregation of the evil proclivities of these people will not come close to 20% of this ultimate evil personified: the Antichrist. He will be given seven years to consummate the flagitious stance of Satanism. Because he needed to present himself as the Messiah, and the word says, Jesus went about doing good, the Antichrist must be a good person initially, for three and a half years. This is the prophetic ‘midst of the week.’ His office will catalyze the world peace that no conqueror had ever engendered.

                                                                                        Something will happen in the middle of the seven years. “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2) For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3) For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” [1Thess 5:1-3].

The Blood (III)

Art by   Dennis Schmelzer

(…continued from part two…)

3)            The blood is Jehovah’s protective devise for His woman. Before she could come into being, his future husband had to sacrifice his rib to allow the expiative innocent blood to go ahead of her disobedience. Its circulatory motility that ensures man’s vim makes it the perfect mechanism of spiritual regeneration. God does not toy with erratic ventures. The blood is a serious affair. It must involve God too. A messier than the clayey sculptural mould of Adam (Genesis 2:7), in Eden, would be the goriest sleep of Golgotha.                                                                                                                                                                                  

Adam’s tardemah gave the sinless life to the female Adam

                The first woman must possess the sinless blood of the first man, a typal Jesus. He must die to bring the church into creation. Did Adam have to die for his woman’s creation? Yes. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof (Genesis 2:21). ‘Deep sleep’ is the Hebrew tardemah (tar-day-maw’), feminine noun, meaning: ‘1. a lethargy 2. (by implication) trance.’ Now this tardemah has the root word radam (raw-dam’), which is: ‘to stun, i.e. stupefy (with sleep or death).’ The saints of Jehovah are not said to be dead, they ‘sleep in the LORD.’ The blood that was shed in Adam’s tardemah gave the sinless life of the female Adam.

Jericho falls but Rahab was saved by the blood

                The names of the four surviving wives of the antediluvian annihilation were kept secret. Why? The Church is God’s most guarded secret. Four is the number of creation. The Church is the creation of a new species of immortality. Christians have, running in their veins, the covenanted blood of God Himself, the Creator of the heavens and the earth. It was important for Rahab to ask for a token. Joshua 2:18 narrates Joshua’s sent spies instruction to Rahab, Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father’s household, home unto thee. This verse is a complete soteriological narrative, no doubt! Everything is so amazingly compactly put together here.

The Blood: the binding connectivity

                Let us begin with the word ‘bind.’ It is qashar (kaw-shar’) which means: ‘bind (up), (make a) conspire (-acy, -ator), join together, knit, stronger, work (treason).’ Scripture makes it clear that Satan’s wicked conspiracy drove us into our sinful nature. The blood is the binding connectivity that engenders the closeness of ‘the body’ to the Christ. She was a gentile woman, with no covenant with Jesus, her faith in the finished work of the cross got her engrafted in the Israel of God’s covenant. Ephesians 2:13, But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

                ‘Line’ is tiqvah (tik-vaw’). This word is a feminine noun and it has the definition of: ‘1. (literally) a cord (as an attachment) 2. (figuratively) expectancy.’ The Church is attached to Jesus by a marriage. Our expectancy is the promised celestial bliss. Does it not say, ”If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable,” in 1Corinthians 15:19? Shaniy (shaw-nee’) is the Hebrew for ‘scarlet’ and it means: ‘crimson, properly, the insect or its color, also stuff dyed with it.’ This is the blood. The precious blood of Jesus. It is truly a big deal. It just has to be Shaniy which happens to be a masculine noun. Jesus is the Bride-groom of the redeemed Church, He is a Man, our dear God-man. The noun ‘thread’ is chuwt (khoot) ‘1. a string 2. (by implication) a measuring tape.’ It is another masculine word. How does it typify Jesus? The measuring stance makes Jesus what He is: the paradigm. Then we have ‘window.’ It is challown (khal-lone’) meaning ‘an opening -[a window (as perforated)].’ Interestingly, challown is either of the genders of male and female. Salvation is not gender partial. Was her household not delivered? Does it not say in Acts 16:31, And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house?

                God commanded male Israelites to cut off the foreskin of the genitals as an identity of His people. It is a bloody affair. The tabernacle, where Jehovah is worshipped must have a sprinkle of blood. It is for atonement. Jephthah’s daughter of Judges Chapter 11 needed not to have been sacrificed at all. Exodus 13:13 & Leviticus 18:15 give the solution. The woman of issue of blood was a reminder of the fallen man. The menses flowed for twelve years –the number of our Lord Jesus. She met Jesus, the Redeemer and the object of man’s offence ceased. Why?  Jesus says, And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world in John 12:47. The Church had been purified for the Master’s use.

                Mary Magdalene was the first to see the risen Lord. She stood in the capacity of the Church. The blood had been poured forth for the remission of sins. Amen! 

                Be cleansed of your sinful nature. Get born again. Say this prayer, believing it with all your heart:

“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died 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 as my Lord and as my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen.

The Blood (I)

1)            Whether it is in the Hebraic dam (dawm) or the Greek aima (hah’-ee-mah) it means the same thing. It is the seat of life. The circulation of this crimson fluid keeps the life of the living entity alive on terra firma. The scriptural definition is: ‘blood (as that which when shed causes death) of man or an animal; by analogy the juice of the grape.’ Sin contaminated the blood of mankind, making his life unfit to stand before the thrice holy LORD God, the Almighty.                             

The soteriological formula finds its calculation in the blood. Arbitrariness has no footing in God’s creativity. The order of the Creator’s steps is of a calculating precision. He knew that Adam would drop the ball. His omniscience gave man two lives running on blood. The second life was to enable him to do a 180 degrees volte-face back (of second chance –alien even to celestial angels) to God in total repentance for the benignancy of God’s soteriology.

The New Blood Covenant at the Last Supper

               The blood receives its first mentioning here in Genesis 4:10, And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground. There is, however, no doubt that a connotation of a bloody affair did take place in these verses, And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22) And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man [Genesis 2:21-22]. This shows a clear indication that God is quite interested in the affairs of humanity. His judgment upon erring intelligent beings of creationism will be tested in Adam.

                The head of the angelic beings, Lucifer, sinned once and remained an embodiment of error forever. Ostensibly, the head of the pre-Adamic principalities plunged all of them into the state of disembodied spirits –demons (on demons click this URL https://hoojewale.wordpress.com/2016/04/30/demonism-part-one …). When it came to Adam, the LORD God had to kill two animals, because they had no part in eternity. The animals, albeit soulish, they had not spirits to be regenerated for the Spirit of God’s habitation. Expendable lives, which cannot participate in celestial bliss, were sacrificed as covenantal witness to God’s soteriological intention. What a wise God!                                        

Blood sacrifices point to the ultimate Golgotha death on the cross

                Before the shedding of innocent animals’ blood, the innocent drops of Adamic crimson fluid had been received by the witnessing earth. “And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof” [Gen 2:21]. On the indubitable account of blood related soteriology, in the spiritual emancipation of mankind, the bloody affair known of rib extraction must spill Adam’s innocent blood as well. Amen. A certain consanguinity was established when the innocent blood of the sacrificial animal met with the sinless blood of Adam and the rhema of, “Go and sin no more,” was applied to the life of the pristine family. The blood!                                                      

                  This is the first thing Noah did. “And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar” [Gen 8:20]. The sacrifice was pleasing to the LORD so much that it is quoted of Him in verse 21, “And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.”

THE CLEANSING BLOOD!

                In the next chapter, a blessing followed the sacrifice in Genesis 9:9, “And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you:” –for the perfection of any sacrifice to God necessitates the draining of the blood of the object of oblation. It is the blood that atones for our spiritual derangement. Life for life. God is full of wisdom. “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out” [Romans 11:33]! In His judgment of sin, God thundered, “Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die” [Ezekiel 18:4]. Since the shed blood has atoned for the sin, thereby removing the curse, the eating of blood revokes divine atonement. Man, through Noah, received the right to make a gourmet of flesh, “But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat” [Gen 9:4]. One life, having been sniffed out for another life to be restored, to make a meal out of the sin stained fluid is quite pollutive.   

                Be cleansed of your sinful nature. Get born again. Say this prayer, believing it with all your heart:

“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died 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 as my Lord and as my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen.

Taking a good look at masked people, do they not look like people from Mars –demons?

(…continued from part one…)

2)            He must silence the Christians. They are the only people who can confront him. They wield an authority, against which he has no clue! They have Jesus. And Jesus has deftly placed the Holy Spirit inside them. “All they have to do,” the Antichrist understands, so very well, “is open their mouths and puissant words of authority pours forth in uncontrollable torrents, pulverizing all our strongholds.”

Congregational worship is most rewarding, most acceptable before Jehovah.

                Keeping Christians out and away from their holy assemblage is a joy that knows no bounds in the malefic heart of Satan. Keeping them away from the effusive glossolalia is a huge accomplishment for the Antichrist. One of them kills a thousand, while through the miracle of inexplicable equation of mathematical theory, two of them will kill ten thousand! He knows what a thousand Christians will be capable of, not to mention the annihilating outcome of what a million of us will definitely do! He has been able to keep Christians quiet. “Pray where tens of you will not do our kingdom any harm,” is the stance of the enemy. How did he accomplish this? Simple.

Christians’ sleep –an enablement for the enemy to sow spiritual inconvenience.

                Matthew 13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. He sprayed the spirit of somnambulism and the church went limp.

                What do I hear some Pastors say? “God wants us to take a rest.” Indeed! That cannot be true at all. I know what the Protocol says. Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching [Hebrews 10:25]. What is the word ‘forsaking’ in Greek? It is egkataleipo (eng-ka-ta-lei’-pō) meaning:1. to leave behind in some place. 2. (in a good sense) let remain over. 3. (in a bad sense) to desert.’ Who says we should ‘desert’ the church, even for one church service day? We played into the hands of the government when we refused to do the scriptural requisiteness –playing the dual roles of the salt and the light of the world. The Church of Jesus went to sleep!‘Assembling’ is episunagoge (e-piy-sïn-a-ğō-ǰee’) 1. a complete gathering. 2. (especially) a Christian meeting (reoccurring for worship).’ The word‘together’ is the same episunagoge (e-piy-sïn-a-ğō-ǰee’) just as ‘assembling’. The only place Christians fellowship is done when they come together, and in the church auditorium, led by the Pastor of the local assembly.

The Household of God Church

                Going to church, in the Apostolic Pauline couch, is an imperative one. It is a must to go to church. We attend church service not only to get spiritually refueled, but, also, to get our spiritual battery well charged for effective Christian life. Church attendance renews the ignition spark plug for effective spiritual combustion. Congregational worship is not only most rewarding, it is the most acceptable before the Thrice holy Jehovah! 

                Paul instructs, by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, that we should, as a matter of fact, increase the weekly number of church worship when the end of time draws near. This is actually the time Paul mentions in the holy writ. What rest are they blabbing about? Our rest is found only in Jesus, the LORD of the Sabbath! The Church is not praying enough. Reverend Chris Okotie says, “I don’t want to ask you (members of The Household of God Church) to give you an extra Church Service day (apart from Sundays & Wednesdays) of the week, so, what I’m doing is increase the amount of time we spend on each service day.” Before the coronavirus epidemic, he told Householders to maintain a certain quietude after each service, expecting us to leave the Church premises very quietly, not talking to anybody at all. About sixty percent –if not more, I believe— of us disobeyed. Who knows maybe God wanted to use the strict obedience of Householders to take better care of Nigeria, and by extension, the world? Who knows?   

Reverend Chris Okotie

                But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. Selah! It is not so late dear saints of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

                Is it by our might or our strength? Certainly not. The power of the word of God resides in us. The Holy Spirit cannot leave nor forsake us. The Goshen experience, that covered the children of Israel is our hope. By the reason of the promise of God which says, And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee (Exodus 15:26). I will put none of these diseases upon thee is our confession.

The Goshen experience protected Israel

                What does this tell me? Every born-again child of God is a Living Goshen. Goshen means ‘approaching, drawing near;’ it has fresh water running through it for irrigation.’ Who draws near to us? Is it not Jesus, the Healer? Who is the Water running through us for strength? The Holy Spirit, of course. Are we alone in these trying times? The true answer is, “No.” Confess the truth and say, “I AM A LIVING GOSHEN.” Selah!

People wear masks on a street in Hong Kong, Friday, Jan. 24, 2020 to celebrate the Lunar New Year which marks the Year of the Rat in the Chinese zodiac.

COVID-19 cannot hold you down if you are a Living Goshen!

                Get born again by saying this simple prayer.

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

Coronavirus (1)

1)            This thing called COVID-19 has got everybody guessing, “What is truly going on?” China and the United States of America are at loggerheads. Biological War! Two Super Powers. When nations of this amplitude fight, something is always very, very fishy.                                                                                   

     Scientific researchers are unable to unravel the true cause of this pandemic, or so it seems. Satanism is so shrouded in secrecy. This, therefore, most certainly, looks like another cover-up. A lot of unsuspecting people may twitch their noses at this, but it is the gospel truth that over 90% of the earth’s political powers are in firm hands of occultists; and you can take that to the bank (it’s understood that they own the biggest banks) and you will not be disappointed. Amen! Most of our political rulers are in possession of a symbolic spoon. When the occasion demands they use it to dine with the great kahuna, Lucifer! The said spoon is the proof of an allegiance with the Darkest Lord.                                                                                                                                 

                There has always been a cure for every disease. How do I know this? It is because the Bible has the answers. The Israelites had a problem with a strangling thirst and when they found water another problem arose: And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them [Exodus 15:25].

Take a lump of figs [2Kings 20:7]

                There is another instance in 2Kings 20:1-3 & 7 In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live. 2) Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the LORD, saying, 3) I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore. 7) And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered. I believe so strongly that there, certainly, is a known cure to those who should know. They just want to waste some lives. Satanism.

How is this enforcement not like 666?

                Everybody should wear a face mask: is the global instruction (or law). The whole world is complying so obediently. I am not really against the wisdom in the protective mask. It, certainly, is not a wrong medical idea. So, what is my grouse with this preventive exercise? Take a meticulous cognizance of a masked populace. They look like cultists! To belong to a secret cult, you must be initiated. The mask, do not think I am being paranoiac here, is a token of having gone through an initiation i.e. obedience to the instruction of a one who has received it from a worshipful master. They have just tested the waters; and to the cachinnatory satisfaction of the Antichrist, it has worked. The world will obey him when he finally assumes the global headship of the terra firma. When the Antichrist becomes the de facto emperor of the world the universal identity is the number 666, akin to the compulsory facial masks for everyone!

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, ……” [Rev. 13:17].

                The mask, as a mark of being able to rule without any opposition, connotes a branding. The words of instruction, likened to a spell, cast on the people, the face mask is a token of having been branded. A branding denotes the ownership of the branded by the owner of the insignia of the brand. We are told to wear masks. We did. The god of this world, Lucifer, will definitely have his wicked day. That gives him a sanguine disposition. His devious plan is an acquirement. Do you know that in every secret cult, the members are warned never to divulge the happenings of the occult to anyone? “Not even to your closest partner.”

                Keep sealed mouth is the order of the Luciferian Order! When people have to cover their mouths, what do you think is happening? Control in its absoluteness. None recognizes another, promoting the abstruseness of ‘say nothing of what you have seen’ of the occult.

                He must silence the Christians. They are the only people who can confront him. They wield an authority, against which he has no clue! They have Jesus! And Jesus has deftly placed the Holy Spirit inside them. All they have to do is open their mouths and puissant words of authority pours forth in uncontrollable torrents, pulverizing all our strongholds.

IT IS A FLABBERGAST THAT JESUS IS MY FRIEND (one)

1)            A touch on the button of friendship emotes a phenomenal gregarianism. The mere thought of friendship with a popular schoolmate evokes fantasy of emotionalism. What transpires in the realm of ecstasy is best left to imagination, when an opportunity fingers an entertainment star, a popular political giant, the wealthiest or the great pastor as a potential friend. Can I help in a reminiscence of the first time ever I struck the love deal with a girl? I was so glad; so very satisfied with this intimacy so much that the satiation it enraptured me in gave me no need, whatsoever, to eat dinner: for I was so full of joyous goodness knowing fully well that the pulchritudinous reality of this good girl is truly all mine! 

His disciples are no longer servants but His friends

                Consequently, so flabbergasted with the deluge of emotionalism I found myself when I read, almost disbelieving, the words of John 15:15, “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” Who are the friends of the Lord Jesus? They are the ones of John 13:5, “After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.” Do you have the slightest idea of what it betokens to ‘wash’ and ‘wipe’ their feet and what connotation is derived therefrom? ‘Wash’ is the Greek word niptō (nip’-to): ‘To cleanse (especially the hands or the feet or the face); ceremonially to perform ablution.’ The word ‘wipe’ is ekmassō (ek-mas’-so): ‘to knead out, that is, (by analogy) to wipe dry.’ What it does bespeak and signify is that Jesus carried out a kneading process that epitomizes the facticity of Divine gregariousness.                          

The Second Member of the Godhead: Jesus

                Is it not a mind blowing baptismal treat getting jolted into the scriptural infallibility that acknowledges your rapprochement between Jesus and you: knowing fully well this is not just anybody, but Jesus, the Word of God, the Second Member of the Godhead, the One of the epithetical ‘which is, which was, and is to come, the Almighty,’ even the LORD God of creationism? In order to bring the gregarianism into a legality of perfection, Jesus carried out a cleansing ceremony. It was more than a ceremonial wash, He wiped out every vestige of alienating abnormality. Amen!                                                                                                                                     Christ made us holy.

We became the sacredness of vessels: men of quality, chosen instruments for Divine gregariousness. Amen. One comforting joyous hope is that this friendship, authored by Him, is perfected and wholly maintained by Jesus, the Eternal Author of salvation. How can flesh and blood redeem a compromised spiritual reality? Only Jesus is the Redeemer. “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” [Philippians 1:6]. In classical Greek, the word ‘confident’ is πείθω with a transliteration peithō (pi’-tho), it speaks of: ‘to persuade, i.e. to induce one by words to believe; to tranquillise; to be induced to believe: to have faith: in a thing; to believe; to be persuaded of a thing concerning a person; to listen to, obey, yield to, comply with.’ By this Pauline couch, I am obedient to God’s finished work, ergo, I believe it. Amen.                                    

A Friend so close: Jesus

                The word ‘perform,’ of John 15:15 is epiteleo (ep-ee-tel-eh’-o) ‘1. to fulfill further (or completely), i.e. execute 2. (by implication) to terminate, undergo.’ The consummation of this friendship is not by any commitment of my doing. It is wholly the Lord’s doing. The implausibility of this phenomenon dazzles one with the incredulity of its uncanny pose. The Bible’s revelation to this fact, that Jesus, very God of very God, is the Performer of this phenomenal cater-cousin with Divinity simply puts my mind at rest and at the same time blows my mind in all directions of the atmospheric winds.

Jesus is Jehovah, our righteousness

You can choose to be another friend of Jesus. Get born again. Meaning it from your heart, say this 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!”

I WILL GIVE YOU REST [part one]

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

 1)           One hardly appreciates the mental grokking of it until one is ushered into the physical reality of basking in true rest. The human mind constantly yearns for the serenity that comes from the cessation of physical travails associated with man’s life on this terra firma. Rest, indeed, is a subjective delicacy psychogenically sought after by every individual. Man’s greatest enemy, the kahuna of task masters, Lucifer, having stumbled on the best way to bring mankind into abject subjugation, sold religious piety to the warped mentality of Adam’s progeny. True rest is absolutely nonexistent in religious toils. Jesus, ergo, had to come to man’s rescue.

            Matthew 11:28, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” This is the solution to man’s yearning for freedom from religious slavery. This rest is found nowhere else but in the Creator.

“Come unto Me….I will give you rest.”

            The verb ‘come,’ in the Greek, is deute (dyoo’-teh). It is a Greek imperative form of deuro (dyoo’-ro) –‘here’ and εἶμι eimi (‘to go’)– meaning: ‘come hither, come here, come interjection, come! come now!’ The word ‘labour,’ kopiaō (kop-ee-ah’-o) is: ‘to grow weary, tired, exhausted (with toil or burdens or grief), to feel fatigue; by implication to work hard.’ ‘Heavy laden’ is phortizō (for-tid’-zo): ‘to place a burden upon, (properly as a vessel or animal), that is, (metaphorically) to overburden with ceremony (or spiritual anxiety).’ While the pronoun ‘you,’ humas (hoo-mas’): ‘an accusative case of the 2nd person you (as the object of a verb or preposition);’ an interesting thing is that ‘give’ and ‘rest’ mean the same anapauō (an-ap-ow’-o): ‘(reflexively) to repose (literally or figuratively (be exempt), remain); by implication to refresh; of calm and patient expectation.’

I Am, the Good Shepherd: JESUS!

            Is it possible for any man to give this kind of rest to anyone? Jesus promises anyone who obeys Him, “I will anapauō you anapauō.” This is perfect rest. This is why ‘rest’ must be mentioned twice: for emphasis. Only the Creator can offer this anapauō. It is not difficult to figure out the One who can establish this safe rest which can only be celestial. The Author of this given rest is found in this Scripture, “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made” [Genesis 2:2]. It is absolutely essential for God to choose the seventh day to institute His day of rest. Is it not the scriptural numerology for perfection? It also proves His perfect control of universal affairs.

The LORD of Sabbath showed Himself on Mount Sanai

                The Hebrew rendition of the sobriquet ‘God’ in Genesis 2:2 is a titillating ‘Ělôhı̂ym (el-o-heem’). This is ‘God’ in the plural. The singular is ‘Ě̆lôahh (el-o’-ah). God the Father will not vacate the celestial throne. The only One that makes Himself visible to human perception is the Second Member of the Godhead. The Christ. When ‘Ělôhı̂ym is employed in the introduction of God, what it simply means is that the Members of the Godhead are acting in strict consonance. Christ, in His preincarnational manifestation, came into Eden as the LORD God of creationism. He is the Author of Sabbath and the Lord of rest. Amen!

the-garden-of-eden-by-wenzel-peter

Perfect rest of the Garden of Eden

            The Hebraic ‘rested’ of Genesis 2:2 is shâbath (shaw-bath’): ‘to repose, that is, desist from exertion; used in many implied relations (causatively, figuratively or specifically).’ The One who rested on the first ever seventh day of human existence is the very One who says to restless man, “Come unto Me……and I will give you rest.”

                The Matthew 11:28 mand of ‘come’ is a divine summon of Old Testamentary understanding. Prophetic utterance of Isaiah 45:22 says, Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” What do I see?  It is saliency: gaping at the unraveling of the deity of Jesus. Is it not apropos that if God did make a repetition of the deute it must be by none else but God Himself? There is no recorded history of any other person offering a soteriological invitation of an eternal consequence. In another prophecy it goes thus: “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price” (Isaiah 55:1). Confer Isaiah 53:2 & 3; John 6:37; John 7:37 & Rev 22:17.

He went about doing good (Acts 10:38)

                The scriptural reference to ‘all’ is found in, Psalm 38:4, “For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.”  This psalmodic complaint is a universal dirge of every soulish entity. Ecclesiastes 2:22 “For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun?” Man’s operose emprise, geared towards spiritual relevance amounts, absolutely, to nothing unless one takes the expected steps of divine protocol that answers the imperative deute of Jesus. Amen!

                Jesus will give you rest only if you will receive His life. Get born again. Say this simple prayer:

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

HE IS IN FULL CONTROL (Part five)

Faithful Abraham

 (…continued from part four…)

5)            After many years of Nimrodic temerarious worship saw an introduction of the faith endearing walk of Abraham. Abraham’s tyro walk even as it exposed the tremulousness of an abecedarian at his sight of the imposing hegemonic Egyptian Pharaoh, God, latching on the covenant He had with Abraham, got Him swinging into action. The table turned in Abraham’s favour. It was the Pharaoh who had to appease Abraham, making him very rich.

                Show wisdom. Stand on the pillar of faith and the riches of the world will be yours, just like that, in Jesus’ name!

Abraham received blessing from Melchizedek

                All that was necessary for Abraham to have was not twelve princes like Ismael. Just one Isaac was all that was required to hold the baton of patriarchy: and that puts God’s transcendence to bear on weak human affairs. Have faith. Did Joseph not make his entrance as an Egyptian slave? What happened when God involved His control in his slavery life? At the time of a huge increase in Israel’s population, it was a return bout when Egypt had metamorphosed into the superpower of the entire globe. Pharaoh’s ungodly proclivity ran him as insane as his liar-father, Lucifer. His temerity earned him his comeuppance. Amen.

                Every machination of the Antichrist must be designed to accept God’s protocol. Control! Satanism cannot, dares not operate outside God’s sanction of his evil games. The Bible says he will give the number representing his name (666) to the people he will lord it over. He must do that. His hegemonic Satanism is just seven years. He cannot exceed this. Control. The Church must experience the eschatological rapture a la Enoch’s ‘translation’ and before then the Antichrist son of Lucifer cannot set up any earthly governmental machinery over born again members of the body of Christ -the true Christians. Impossible! “Impossican’t!” (My Pastor, Rev. Chris Okotie will jocularly asseverate).

The Holy Spirit is our spiritual energy

                Our physical presence on terra firma is God’s full control over the governmental emergence of the evil antics of the son of perdition. There cannot be two masters on a ship. The stark reality is simply that our presence will make it impossible for his satanic hegemony. One prayer from true Christians will bind and cast him to the hellish abode he eventually belongs. God’s equitable jurisdiction, therefore, must allow Satan to have his evil day.

                The propriety of jurisprudence, in this context of Lucifer being the god of this world system, owing to the historical fact that Adam gave the earth to the Devil when he sinned, man’s slavery to a physical dominion of the Antichrist is a comeuppance. Even in his hegemonic stance in the eschatology of Divine calendar, Jehovah does not cease to be in control. Israel will be God’s mouthpiece. His covenant with Israel is His legality. Israel has seven more years to receive her Messiah. God’s control makes it imperative for Lucifer not to have more than seven remaining years of the Law Dispensation. Of the seven, the Antichrist must do good deeds during the first half.

Satan almost killed lovely ‘BBB,’ a wonderful blogger, but Jesus was in full control!

                Jesus took three and a half years of the seven (in His ministry of going about doing good). After the peaceful years: “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” [1Thessalonians 5:3] is the betiding phenomenon. Evil as never before. He will be left with only the second half of the seven years to unleash all the cruelty of the demented mind of Satan, his lost father of lies. The Divine calendar of Dispensation of Grace, having brought to its logical conclusion by the rapture of Christians, the remaining part of the suspended Dispensation of the Law is employed to deal with the Antichrist and his foul father when Israel would have to cry unto Jehovah as usual, and even to the chagrin of Israel, Jesus will be the One to show up: for He is the Jehovah –in the fullest control! Amen. Hallelujah!!

                Man has always been a bad manager of his life. Let God be in control of your life for proper management. Get born again. Say this prayer, meaning it:

“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!”

God forgave the first Woman -Eve.
Jehovah is in firm control

HE IS IN FULL CONTROL (Part four)

(…continued from part three…)

4)            He is in full control:

As the Father: in Genesis 1:3 “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” He is the Author of creationism. Revelation 4:2 “And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” This is the Eternal Father, seated majestically over His Rainbow Administration. This is the first time His physical presence receives a scriptural recording. The truth is that, the word ‘one’ is in italics, proving that it is not of the original Johannine script (remove the pronoun ‘one’ of the verse and it comes out more forcefully). The word ‘throne’ is thronos (thron’-os) and it has the definitions of: ‘1. a stately seat, “throne” 2. (by implication) power 3. (concretely) a potentate, sovereign, or ruler.’ Thronos comes from thrao “to sit.”

As the Christ: in Genesis 3:8, “And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.” As Jesus Christ His absolute proof of being in control of His life is read in John 10:18, “No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.”Neither of the Eternal Father nor the Holy Spirit, save the Eternal Son, is ever beheld by the naked eyes of man.

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:1).

As the Holy Spirit: in Act 20:28, “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” Before the crucifixion of Jesus, He sat, in the holy of holiest, as the LORD God of Israel to be worshipped. After the resurrection, from the day of Pentecost, He has taken control of the Church Age till the second coming of the Messiah.

                Most certainly, dominion got transferred from Adamic hegemony to that of the indwelling serpentine spirit. However, by the protevangelium of Genesis 3:15 the man, technically, was brought in to represent God, putting Him, the LORD God, in control. When God’s breath, which He put in man’s creation, mixes with the faith in God’s word, man becomes his creator’s oracular afflatus –office of a regnant prophet. The meaning of Seth, Adam’s third son, is the Hebraic shêth (shayth): compensation; put, that is, substituted.’ Having been put in place by divine authorisation, the Bible says, “And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD” [Gen 4:26]. The LORD never did lose control. Amen.

                Enoch was translated, according to Pauline apostolic teaching where the ‘translation’ of Hebrews 11:5, metathesis (met-ath’-es-is) means: transposition, that is, transferral (to heaven), disestablishment (of a law).’ Man was taken to a place of rest, awaiting a certain glorification and eventual return to his ownership of the earth which has been given to him as a Divine donation. Amen. One of the meanings of ‘translation’ is ‘disestablishment of the law’ and the salience of questioning should be, “What law?” It is the law of ‘sin and death’ [Romans 8:2]; a reminder of the couch, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die” [Ezekiel 18:20]. Proving His transcendental hegemon He disestablished the clog in the wheels of Adamic spiritual progression. That administrative abrogation enabled paradise access to an antediluvian saint like Enoch.

The annihilating, great Deluge

                The oldest Adamic creature in history, Methuselah, was made to sleep in Abraham’s Bosom just before the annihilating great Deluge (an age which got the importation of the pervasive wickedness from Cain’s city of Nod). He must be kept safe, all because of the facticity of not wanting to have not more than eight souls in the ark: eight is the number of new beginnings. Is HE not in control? Selah! Is the LORD God in spiritual control of your life? Then, categorically speaking, you have absolutely nothing to worry about! Definitely not!

                Man has always been a bad manager of his life. Let God be in control of your life for proper management. Get born again. Say this prayer, meaning it:

“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!”
