HE IS IN FULL CONTROL (Part one)

1)            You may be an atheist, Buddhist, Hindustan, Islamist, Humanist, Judaist or a church going person. There may, also, be diverse thoughts concerning creation. What is certain is that One Personage did bring all that is in existence into being. Elements, compounds, structures, animalia and intelligent lives of beings were His creations.

            While, as the Bible teaches, the atheist is long lost in spirituality, and the Humanist is groping in abject deficiency in his spiritual connection with his Maker, other forms of religious affiliated ones ascribe creation to this Being as myopia allows. The Bible gives His name as JEHOVAH. He spoke face to face with Moses, the prophet and first leader of Israel. “And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven” [Exodus 17:14]. “And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel” [Exodus 34:27].

The Bible reveals in Exodus 33:11, “And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.” We also read from the Pentateuch in Deuteronomy 34:10, “And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face:” to prove the creationism account of the Scripture to be true.

            God recreated the terra firma for mankind. “The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men” [Psalm 115:16]. He gave him freedom. “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:” [Genesis 2:16]. This 16th verse is the biblical proof of Adamic free moral agency. Man’s dominion is not in question, albeit, the ultimate control was not in Adam’s hands. “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” [Genesis 2:17]. The Limiter is the One in full control. “Yes, dear son Adam, you have dominion, but to give you full control of your life will put you in an egregious jeopardy,” God probably mused in Adam’s ears.

The fall of the pristine parents

            And, drop the ball, Adam did. If he had been in full control of everything, the tempter would have assumed the role of ‘the winner takes all’ in the victory of his Pyrrhic and fugacious change of power. God made sure that the sinfulness of evil must occur in His earthly home, Garden of Eden. He has every right into His home. He, legally speaking, did not relinquish His ultimate control of terra firma to Adam by the codicil found in Genesis 2:17. Adam died spiritually. His wife died alongside his walking cadaver stance. The deceptive Lucifer had been billions of years dead –spiritually. Where were they? In God’s house. Remember 1Peter 4:17, about where God’s judgment should commence?

To save the earth from another cataclysm, the Living, sinless God had to manifest, to prove who is in absolute control. He did not only judge the wrong doers, He gave a calendar of salvation in His protevangelium of Genesis 3:15 “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” In sending them away, for whom the earth was made, He established the fact of their dead situation. Death, as a matter of fact, is to be cut off from the presence of God. As more were born into the world, walking cadavers increased.

Adam lost the human glory

            We may not have the physical location of Eden again but that can never make Him lose control of the earth. Satan thought he had firm control, having executed a successful putsch against the dominion of Adam, and especially having, as his global priest, Cain, the very first born of Adam’s family. The Genesis 3:15 spoken word of God found a germination in Seth: for in his days men began to call upon the name of the Lord. God must save the world to prove His firm control so eight souls were the surviving evangelists of His coming.

                Again, the emergence of Nimrod gave Satan an impression of riding a huge stallion of victory not knowing that he was crawling on the back of a cockroach (a Pyrrhic victory)! Abraham took the word of God across the Euphrates. He saw the physical manifestation of Him in Genesis 18; why not? Abraham was a bona fide friend of God. He passed the baton to Isaac, who needed not see the physical manifestation of the LORD God.

worthy

                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!”

IS CHRISTIANITY AN IMPORTED RELIGION? (Part two)

 800px-Jacob_de_Backer_-_Garden_of_Eden_-_WGA1125

          This is where the Church started –Garden of Eden

 (Continued from part one)

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

Christianity

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

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

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

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

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

Christianity-isnt-an-evil-religion

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

Adam & eden

    The Church sinless of Eden

Get born again to become a Christian. 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!”      (…to be concluded…)

THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT (1st part)

eve-picked-the-forbidden-fruit-and-gives-the-apple-to-adam-cpadh4         God called, of the forbidden fruit, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They did not eat just a fruit. It was beyond the knowledge of an enjoyment of a juicy delicacy. What is evident in this scenario is that: An approach to the tree, the pluck, and the eating of the forbidden stuff, is a plunge into the characteristic putrefaction of the lake of disobedience. To disobey God is to throw a challenge of a long duel at Him. What makes the original sin more grievous is the fact that they had seen and known (at the closest range) the LORD God, who had walked into the Eden Garden every coolness of evening. He had warned them of the deadly consequence of disobeying His Word.

forbidden-fruit-19731410

A brew of good and evil can never be a child’s toy. Only God has the capability to control the intricacies involved in an amalgam of good and evil, simply because the personification of evil is His creation. Lucifer had had connection with the earth eons before the creation of our pristine parents. The true test of Adamic dominance capability of the once corrupted earth will, therefore, be a proof of his moral strength to maintain a deference to God’s word and a total disregard for a strange discourse. The occupation of the Garden of Eden was, as a result, a probationary abode.

adam-and-eve-04

“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” [Gen 2:17]. The Hebrew has “in dying thou shalt die” (speaking of two deaths – spiritual and physical deaths). This is the probatory proof in scripture. The word ‘die’, in Hebrew, is mûth (mooth): ‘to die (literally or figuratively); causatively to kill’. It was, no doubt, a strange vocabulary to a newly created being, especially in the likeness and in the image of their Creator. None had died. The day Adam ate the forbidden fruit he died. He did not live to celebrate his thousand year’s birthday from the point of the view of 2Peter 3:8. They polluted their spiritual life with the sin of disobedience. And that was what they technically ate – disobedience – and not a fruit in the real spiritual sense.

The woman was fed with a humanistic disobedience. She enjoyed the taste of it. Most definitely. The word of God said categorically, “thou shalt surely die“. The Bible’s account of the Devil’s words is, “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die” (emphasis mine) [Gen 3:4-7]. All he had to do to prove his deadly subtlety was just to add an innocuous looking ‘not’ to God’s own words, making it look the same as the statement of Divinity, which reminds me of the Pauline Galatians 1:6-7, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7) Which is not another;….” The first ‘another’ of the 6th verse is technically not the same as that of the 7th. For the ‘another’ in the 6th verse, it is heteros (het’-er-os): ‘(an-, the) other or different (i.e. one not of the same nature, form, class, kind – opposed to some former person or thing)’. ‘Another’ of the 7th verse is allos (al’-los): “else”, that is, different (in many applications) which speaks of (another of the same kind)’. The spirit behind the ophidian intrusion made sure that he screwed the lid of the coffin tightly with this Humanism philosophy of: “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” Genesis 3:5. The satanic goal of secular humanism is to remove an individual’s eyes of deference to the celestial Deity, and placing it unto himself. The woman thought she had got a good thing.

woman-with-apple

Genesis 3:6, “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat”. Ask yourself this. Why did the first woman decide to eat it first before giving it to her husband? Humanists tend to see the individual as the centre of spiritual attraction. She warmed up to the enemy’s deception. The acceptance of the subtly deceit gave the enemy the victory over her organs of judgment. Her eyes believed because her heart said yes to Satan.

GOD’S TEMPLE (II)

ca66b1f5f35e327c25321f4ef9438185

The purpose of Adamic creation is for the worship of the true God. Adam was both the lord of the earth and the priest i.e. the political and the spiritual headship. In that he adumbrates Jesus as both Priest and King (Genesis 14:18; Psalm 110:4 & Hebrews 7:1-3). Remember it was after the creation of the Woman that God said, “very good” and not “good” as for other days’ score. You know why? The Woman is the body of Adam, a prefiguration of Christ, hence, she adumbrates the Church! “If only I could just get the Church”, was Lucifer’s shenanigan preoccupation. Right there in the Garden was the most mystical representation of God: the Church! We have the priestly office in Adam and worshipper in the Woman so, where is the Worshipped? He was the LORD God, who brought the Woman to Adam the man. When the Man said, “Yes”, he agreed with the commencement of the Church (for where two or three are gathered…- Matthew 18:20). They saw the LORD God of Sabbath, their Creator. The only One that man’s physical eyes can behold among the Trinity is Christ. I am highly elated to announce to you that the One to whom the first Church, in Eden, worshipped is the preincarnate Jesus! And this is the true God: Jesus.

tongues

The first Church at the Pentecost, in the Upper Room.

In the Book of Acts of the Apostles 2:3-4, “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”, the spiritual Israel, the Church, was built. Over the years the Gentile nation was grafted in. Remember Solomon’s supplication, “Moreover concerning a stranger, that is not of thy people Israel, but cometh out of a far country for thy name’s sake; (1Kings 8:41). Today Christians all over the world form one ‘body of Christ’, the Church. The Holy Spirit still occupies His rightful place of the holy of holies i.e. the spirit of every believer – man’s third compartment. The spirit of an individual is his third compartment; the first being the visibility of his physiognomy and the second of which is the soul. God no longer dwells in the physical building or in the land of Israel. He lives in His spiritual children: the Church. Every born again Christian should, for this reason, be able to speak in tongues. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”. In perpetuity God dwells in us, the born again Christians. Amen. For how long are we going to be here in the world of satanic control?

HOUSEHOLD OF GOD CHURCH

There cannot be two masters in any given situation. When the man of perdition (2Thessalonians 2:3, Revelation 17:11) comes to occupy the seat of the cosmos for his father, Lucifer, God’s children will be raptured (Luke 17:34-36; 1Corinthians 15:52 & 1Thessalonians 4:16-17). The Devil must have his day for the sake of judicial equity, in the sense that man gave the world to Satan, which elevated the evil one to the position of the god of this world (John 12:31, 14:30; 2Corinthians 4:3-4). The word ‘world’ in the two verses of John is kosmos (kos’-mos): ‘orderly arrangement, that is, decoration; by implication the world (in a wide or narrow sense, including its inhabitants, literally or figuratively [morally]’. We need to understand that Satan has effected a whimsical arrangement of the earth. ‘Age’, of 2Corinthians as it comes in the Greek is aiōn (ahee-ohn’): ‘properly an age; by extension perpetuity (also past); by implication the world; specifically (Jewish) a Messianic period (present or future)’. This ‘age’ has a controlling spirit (the zeitgeist). Lucifer likes to ape God, hence, the antichrist will represent him as the god of the world. The temple of God (the Church) must be removed (2Thessalonians 2:3, 7) to give the wickedness of this world its free moral agency to exercise its willingness to bow down to satanic idolatry (Exodus 4:21; Deuteronomy 2:30 & Mark 10:5). After the Antichrist (2Thessalonians 2:3-4) would have had his days of three and a half years (Daniel 7:25; 9:27 & 12:7), the Lord Jesus will ascend with His saints to destroy (Daniel 7:22-27; 2Thessalonians 2:8-10) the fake Christ and reign for 1000 years (Revelation 20:2-7) and a crooked cosmos will experience God’s holy temple for the first time. Amen! You can be part of God’s temple today 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 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”.   (Concluded)
