EXISTENTIAL RIGHTEOUSNESS (2)

(…continued from part one…)

2)

               Genesis 15:6 reads, “And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.” It was strictly a show of righteousness being run by the Divinity. Unbeknown to Abraham, God opened a bank account for him. When Abraham decided to put all his eggs, unlike the philosophy of mankind, into one basket –of faith— God entered it into the file of righteousness. The psalmist wrote, “He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake” [Psalms 23:3]. He could not have penned this verse of soteriological phenomenon without the inspired contribution of the Holy Spirit. All one does is just following the Shepherd. This ‘following’ is irrefragably of a spiritual significance. The good Shepherd, as the Eternal LORD, can only work an eternally secured salvation for the creativity of His wrought ‘image’. Amen.

               At the Eden Garden fall, did man not try to get himself equitably garbed? His foliated garb was absolutely an unprepossessing falsehood. Probably a pool of still waters helped to mirror the insane design of his chosen apparel. As the unmistakable voice of His Holiness pierced through the atmospheric serenity of the Garden of Eden, unrighteous instinct told them to run for cover. Right-standing impaired! It is in this light I introduce Isaiah 64:6  “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” Ṭâmê’ (taw-may’), the Hebrew for ‘unclean’ means: ‘impure (ethically and religiously).’ ‘Righteousnesses’ is tsedâqâh (tsed-aw-kaw’); rightness (abstractly), subjectively (rectitude), objectively (justice), morally (virtue) or figuratively (prosperity).’ ‘Filthy,’ ‛êd (ayd), is ‘1. the menstrual flux (as periodical). 2. (by implication) (in plural) soiling.’ ‘Rags,’ begged (behg’-ed), is defined as ‘treachery, deceit;  garment, clothing (used indiscriminately).’

                Isaiah agrees with my submission that sinfulness is the bane of our Adamic predicament. The perfectly created man did commit the unrighteous deed, and became as unrighteous as his tempter, Satan the Devil. From that ominous day, we have become unclean, ethically and religiously. The religious stance of our being, it must be understood, actuates worship. If we should stop worshipping God, our spiritual tie to Him suffers the destruction engendered by the sheer separation. It, in reality, translates into death –alienated from Him forever! Death, therefore, is simply a cut off from God, who, essentially, is life. Impurity is a harbinger of unrighteousness. To maintain the unrighteousness of Satanism, Lucifer must introduce and ignite a vigorous religiosity in man’s psyche.

Filthy rags [Isaiah 64:6]

                An unrighteous essence pollutes every deed of actuation. White corn seeds will produce the same colour of a prepared pap. Right? Yes! What happens when the cooking receptacle is treated with a smeared soot before the preparation of the corn meal; what will be the colour of its exhibition? Black? Yes, simply on account of its pollution! Man’s righteous essence got tampered with, when the ophidian spirit of Satanism got the woman of Eden to believe his mendacious chicanery. No matter the best of favourableness tied to an intention, as long as it does not produce the redolence of the Spirit of truth, the Third Member of Divinity, it is doomed for unfruitfulness, before the ultimate Judge. This explains why “all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags.”

                Will it not be judged as treacherous as a coup d’état, if a woman should walk up to the dining table of an emperor and slaps the table with her heavily soiled menstrual pad while the monarch is enjoying his breakfast? Can righteousness receive an engenderment from Satanism? Many teachers of the Bible do not even know how despicable the term “filthy rags” is. There is no way one can please the LORD God in this fallen, Adamic soul. It is continually in antagonism with the Good God. The Creator saw this putrefaction, so, the Scripture revealed the words of Genesis 6:5-6 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6) And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

                The good deeds of fallen man emanates from the spirit of wiliness. He only wants to satisfy the diablerie of his conscience. A make-believe heart of philanthropy is the shenanigan connivance of Satanism. It is believed that the leaders of the occult and of religions tell the adherents to engage in generous alms giving; believing that it will make up for the evil deeds of their dark lives. Is it not an insulting act trying to please God, still steeped in the incorrigibility of ones satanic heart? Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap [Galatians 6:7]. The word ‘mocked’ is the Greek mukterizo (mïk-tee-riy’-zō):to make mouths at, i.e. ridicule.’ And the good news is that this righteousness can be regained. If it is an impossibility, Jesus would not have told Nicodemus, For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” [John 3:16]; seeing it is a mark of showing faith –in the name and the finished work of Jesus, the Saviour— that gives man eternal life.

                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!”

DELAY IS NOT DENIAL (five)

Art by Johannes Jan Vermeer – Christ in the House of Martha and Mary

(…continued from part four…)

5)            John 11:5-44, 5) “Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. 6) When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. 7) Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. 8) His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?……14) Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. 15) And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him……20) Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house. 21) Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 22) But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. 23) Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. 24) Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 25) Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live……32) Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

                33) When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, 34) And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see. 35) Jesus wept……36) Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him! 37) And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?……39) Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. 40) Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? 41) Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. 42) And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. 43) And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. 44) And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.”

Mary & Martha celebrate the resurrection of Lazarus

                For four gruelling days of mental discomfort, the family of the deceased Lazarus continued to ask, “Why us; where is Jesus, the supposedly Friend of our dear brother?” Questions that refused to supply some meaningful answers. God must do things in style. When He eventually showed up –God always shows up to people of faith—, Jesus told them what they never knew of Him, I am the resurrection, and the life.” Verse 40 reads, “Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” The Author of soteriology took them back to the day of old, the day when as the Visitant He ask of Abraham’s understanding, “Is any thing too hard for the LORD” [Genesis 18:14]?

                Four days of perplexing delay was absolutely not of denial! Amen!

”…he cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” [John 11:43]

                Lucifer’s unholy desiderative crave is to render the Adamic race completely an impotent fruitlessness. He remembered how absolutely distraught he felt in the hopelessness of ever being reinstated to his archangel status. All was indubitably lost! In the very second that the serpentine of Satanism was able to manipulate the woman into erroneously speaking for the Adamic headship, the Devil successfully sowed the seed of hopelessness in man’s psyche.

                Adam began to see his race as an alien before the thrice holy God. He had forgotten that he was created, not only in the anthropomorphic façade of the Divinity, but in absolute facticity also of the grand image of the One seated eternally on the empyreal throne of the Rainbow Administration. The Image of Elohiym is Christ. So, what we read in Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…;” the ‘image’ is tselem (tseh’-lem), meaning: ‘to shade; a phantom, that is, (figuratively) illusion, resemblance; hence a representative figure, especially an idol.’ The image of Genesis 1:26 points to a Personage. 2Corinthians 4:4 reveals, “…lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” The ‘glorious light’ is not the image, Christ is the Image.

                Get born again. Say this simple prayer, believing it with all your heart. Say:

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

TRUE PICTURE OF THE WORLD (6)

The world is so spiritually ill

(…continued from part five…)

6)            Jeremiah 8:9 reads, The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them? What is the word ‘wise’? Chakam (khaw-kawm’), meaning: ‘wise, (i.e. intelligent, skilful or artful).’ Yabesh (yaw-bashe’) is the Hebrew for ‘ashamed’ meaning: ‘1. to be ashamed, confused or disappointed 2. (as failing) to dry up (as water) or wither (as herbage).’ While ‘dismayed’ is chathath (khaw-thath’) ‘1. (properly) to prostrate 2. (hence) to break down, either (literally) by violence, or (figuratively) by confusion and fear;’ the word ‘taken’ is lakad (law-kad’) ‘1. to catch (in a net, trap or pit) 2. (generally) to capture or occupy 3. (also) to choose (by lot) 4. (figuratively) to cohere.’

                Have they been truly wise? This is the prophetic query of Jeremiah. If they truly are, why do we see them held up in this gangrenous state of spirituality? They did something to the eternal word of God. Rejection. ‘Rejected’ is the Hebraic ma’ac (maw-as’) ‘1. to spurn 2. (intransitively) to disappear.’ The word of God has disappeared from their lifestyle. There is no way anyone will pooh-pooh the precepts of LORD God and not do an apocalyptic embrace with the wicked Devil! Amen!

Hell? See Luke 16:23-24.

                A young, 5th grade, boy of about 10 years was quoted as saying, “I’ll love to go to hell: it’ll be nice and warm!” What, on earth, could have informed this tender aged lad to embrace such egregious lies of cruelty? He, most definitely, heard it from an older person, watched it in one of Hollywood stunts of their make-believe world, or heard it right from his heart (this is what the Devil does, he does a playback of deceitful lies in the unwary heart, tricking the poor boy into believing that they were his –the boy’s– original  thoughts). Well, it should not surprise anyone if the boy should believe that. His soft, yielding age and the unsophistication of it is what the sadism of Lucifer preys on, being a soft target for the disciple seeking Devil.

Headed, stupidly, to Eden nudity?

                The children of this day are desirous of absolute freedom. Freedom from paternity; from constituted laws; ethical morality. Having been tutored by the silent lectures from demonism, the evil ways of Satanism has become so attractively desirable. All Satan has to do is just take them back on a journey to the nudity of Eden manoeuvre. The progenies of Eve have consistently fallen for this same satanic beguilement, over and over and again. All the devil has to do is a pad and a crawl into the unsuspecting heart; deposit the verbal script of his chicanery in it; work on it. The wicked one: he knows how to wait. He waits to see the fruitfulness of what he has successfully sowed in the hearts of unsuspecting souls. The truth is that Satan cannot force anyone to accept his insidiousness. Everybody has the spiritual strength to say, “No!” to Satanism.

Lot’s wife looked back, away from Jesus, the Saviour.

                There is this Sodom and Gomorrah proclivity of looking back. It brought God all the way from heaven to prove its facticity. Gen 18:20-21 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; 21) I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.” Sodom is the Hebrew Cdom (sed-ome’) ‘(meaning) burnt (i.e. volcanic or bituminous) district.’ Sexual eruption is quite alien to Divine protocol: that is what Sodomites are into, unbeknown to them. Burned up in the itch of eroticism, satanic prescription of very hard drugs becomes the proclivious lifestyle. When the angels of destruction came to the bestial Sodom and Gomorrah, the incorrigible concupiscent occupants would demand coitus lust, even with the angels of the Most High Jehovah. The first treatment of sodomites’ proclivity is what we have in Genesis 19:11, And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.”

Man burning towards a fellow man: bestiality!

                The Hebrew for Gomorrah, `Amorah (am-o-raw’), is ‘a (ruined) heap.’ `Amorah comes from `amar (aw-mar’) 1. (properly) apparently to heap. 2. (figuratively) to chastise (as if piling blows). 3. (specifically) to gather grain (as denominative from `amar). It comes from a primitive root of ‘bind sheaves, make merchandise of.’ Gomorrah is a burning heap of erotic nonsense. Prostitution, today, has been merchandised. This is what Lucifer created in Gomorrah. Homosexualism must follow suit if it, truly, is of Satanism. Gen 19:17 “And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.” But what happened in Gen 19:26 “But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.” The words ‘looked back’ is one Hebraic nabat (naw-ɓat’) ‘1. to scan, i.e. look intently at. 2. (by implication) to regard with pleasure, favor or care.’ She longed for the forbidden pleasure of Satanism. This is what the true picture of the world is, unfortunately.

Lady-like enough? Afraid not! Wanton!

TRUE PICTURE OF THE WORLD (3)


(…continued from part two…)

3)            Man is of sinfulness. God expects man to forsake the label of ruination hanging on his neck. He must receive Jesus as Lord and Saviour because that is Who Jesus is –the Saviour of this cursed world. Jesus said, “For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39) And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be [Matthew 24:38-39].

                Is the true picture of the present world not of a derailment? Can anyone dine with the Devil and not be wallowing in the soil of the blood of the innocent? It is not possible to be an Apostle of evil and not to have tasted of an iniquitous initiation. Opposed to: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith. Meekness, temperance (the fruits of the Spirit of God –Galatians 5:22) are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness. Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies. Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings (Galatians 5:20-21) –all proclivities of the flesh.  

                Very few live on the fruits of the Spirit. The tumultuous whole lot, that luxuriate in wanton gourmadism of satanic delectation of Galatians 5:20-21, will prove their state of being in their activities. The poisonous vulgarity from their lips must utter the taboo words of ‘sh’ and ‘f’ words. Is there any Hollywood movie that does not script these words of putrefaction into the mouths of their star actors? Semiramic evolutions of Diana, Venus, Aphrodite, Isis and many others promoted prostitution as a ritual, in the assemblage of religious worship. Illicit sex is, no doubt, the thing of the present world. It is viewed as having fun. What do they call fornication? “Making love,” they will assert. This is what the Bible, in Galatians 5:20, calls ‘fornication’ in Greek: porneia (por-nei’-ah), defined as: ‘1. prostitution (including adultery, incest, and porn) 2. (by extension) unwedded stimulation or fulfillment of sexual desire 3. (figuratively) idolatry.’ Fornication is strictly a pornographic issue.

Objects of prostitution

                Sex business is one of the most thriving illicit ventures of human degradation. A virgin, ergo, is ungraciously mocked for being so unexposed to quotidian ‘goodness.’ Sex between an unmarried couple is quite idolatrous. How? God invented sex for the legal couple. Any deviation is anti-God. Any anti-Jehovah tendency is of the Devil. Sex is therefore spiritual. Sex before a legal marriage is an adoration of the initiator of Satanism. A much more phenomenal one is that of homosexualism and its feminine lesbianism. Egregious absurdity.

Behold the Bride of Christ!

                The woman is Christ’s bride. The one whose original sin is completely forgiven. Having taken the woman, whose sole desire is to please Him who has called her out of the darkness of Satanism, the woman’s Lord, Saviour and God is Jesus Christ. Adamic reality is only of two sexes; one (the woman) has said, “Yes, I do!” This marriage to the Lamb necessitates an engenderment of latria. Lucifer has one opium of extreme desideration: to be worshipped. To receive this divine established phenomenon, the Devil must marry. A natural marriage must involve a couple, one a male and the other a female. The LORD God, preeminently has got the woman. Perplexed, Lucifer obstinately goes for the only available ‘male’ (Cain). This is the birth of homosexuality.

Longing; lust for what is forbidden: homosexualism.

                Let us begin this homosexual stuff with 1Thessalonians 4:5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: where the word ‘lust’ is pathos (path’-os) ‘1. (properly) suffering (“pathos”) 2. (subjectively) a passion (especially sexual lust);’ and ‘concupiscence’ is epithumia (ep-ee-thoo-mee’-ah) meaning: ‘1. a longing 2. (especially) a lust for what is forbidden.’ Colossians 3:5 says, Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: and what does ‘inordinate affection’ denote? It is the above ‘pathos.’

From Babylon to Egypt idolatrously

                Why is pathos an act of ‘idolatry,’ the Greek of which is eidololatreia (ei-do-lol-at-rei’-ah) ‘image-worship?’ Eidololatreia is made of two words: Eidolon (ei’-do-lon) ‘1. an image, idol (i.e. for worship) 2. (by implication) a heathen god 3. (plural) the worship of such.’ The second is latreia (lat-rei’-ah) ‘ministration of God, i.e. worship.’ Idolatry is a religious malposition. The wickedness of idolatry is borne out of the fact that it is offered solely to Lucifer, Jehovah’s archenemy. Inordinate sex leads the participants in satanic worship –scripturally speaking.

Homosexuality: who’s the wife & who’s the husband?

                Romans 1:26-28 remain the scriptural pointer to the diabolism of homosexuality. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.”

                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.

TRUE PICTURE OF THE WORLD (2)

(…continued from part one…)

2)            Leading mankind into the perfect picture of Satanism, Nimrod must camp humanity in the slavery of religion. ‘Scattered abroad’ of Genesis 11:4 is the Hebrew word pûts (poots) which comes from ‘the root to dash in pieces, literally or figuratively (especially to disperse).’ Nimrod was bent on the vitiated campaign slant in opposition to God’s will. He needed to have all mankind under his insidious conspiracy. If men should disperse abroad the earth’s surface, it would be in obedience to God’s word. His success makes it so easy for him to present himself as a substitute deity to the children of Noah. Nimrod’s subtle directive was based on the antagonistic spirit of the antichrist. The true Antichrist will set himself up as the de facto stipulatory ruler of the whole world.

Nimro-Semiramis global latria

                Genesis 11:8, “So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.” That the Governor of the nations, Jehovah Elohyim, as a matter of fact, must have His way, does not vitiate the true picture of the majority of the dwellers of the earth. As they settled in their various locales, they rejuvenated their religious proclivity of the adoration of Nimrod, the sun god, in various names of their new languages while Semiramis’ apotheosis continued to rule the religious hearts of humanity. The contradistinction that underscores man’s egotistical stance before the Creator eventually evolved into satanic assemblage of cultism –church of Satanism!

Angels chose daughters of men and married them (Genesis 6:2).

                Remember the union of fallen angels with the daughters of Adam? It resulted in the account of Genesis 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. The progenies were not necessarily of gargantuan statures as the word ‘giant’ seem to mean. The Hebrew for giant is nphiyl (nef-eel’) (or nphil {nef-eel’}): ‘(properly) a feller, i.e. a bully or tyrant.’ Gibbowr (ghib-bore’) (or (shortened) gibbor {ghib-bore’}) is the Hebrew for ‘mighty men’ and it means: ‘1. Powerful 2. (by implication) a warrior, tyrant.’ The word ‘renown’ is shem (shame) ‘1. an appellation, as a mark or memorial of individuality 2. (by implication) honor, authority, character.’

Angelic sired ones became occult, mighty men of renown (Genesis 6:4).

                The progenies, by virtue of having been sired by angels of infamy, had the genetic superpower of angels, ergo, they could perform unprecedented physical and mental feats. They grew tyrannical wings. They were the superstars. Their fathers, no doubt, got them initiated into the cult of Lucifer. They grew in fame and in untold riches. They owned the earth, they were a breed of half angels, half man. The angelic part of them was a fallen one, doomed for hell, ergo, cannot be saved. They constitute freaky accouchement before the judgment of God. Of truth is the couch which says, Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God (James 4:4).

Moloch idolatrous worship

                Anyone who partners with Satan or has any dealings of mutualism with Lucifer becomes a spiritual freak. A malconformation. The truism of Scripture is that adultery has its hyponymy firmly planted in idolatry. Every idolatrous worshipper is married, spiritually, to Lucifer. This is the picture of the world. The ultramodern man tends to love the world and all the putrefaction it extols as its glory. Imagine the entire population of the antediluvian age of about two million, save eight, that got plunged into annihilation. With the exception of Lot, his wife and two daughters, the entire population of the two nations of Sodom and Gomorrah became one huge incinerator when it met the ireful judgment of God. 2Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; Sodom means ‘scorch’ while Gomorrah means ‘a ruined heap.’ Is this not the picture of our cosmos?

JESUS: The WORD Of God (What does it betoken?) Part 3

(Continued from the 2nd part) 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    3)            The grand crescendo of John’s discourse was reached in this 14th verse. “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” While ‘Word’ in Greek is Logos (which signifies a word spoken, is in this context, ‘the speech, eloquence, doctrine, reason, or the faculty of reasoning of God), ‘flesh’ is sarx (sarx): ‘flesh (the soft substance of the living body, which covers the bones and is permeated with blood) of both man and beasts; the body; the body of a man.’

The WORD is the Maker of life

                A significant word here is ‘made.’ Going by the Greek interpretation ‘made’ is quite inappropriate. ‘Made’ makes the ‘Word’ to be a created ‘flesh.’ Ginomai (ghin’-om-ahee) is the Greek word. Its definition is: ‘to cause to be (“gen” -erate), that is, (reflexively) to become (come into being), used with great latitude (literally, figuratively, intensively, etc.).’ Ginomai says that the Eternal Word, the Lord from heaven, the Alpha and Omega, Christ Jesus, who is not of the flesh, became one of us! Incredible! Jesus Christ is both God and man at the same time. He is one hundred percent God and one hundred percent man. This is the theologically incredulous hypostatic union! Amen.                                                          

                It is the spiritual phenomenon that transcends scientific percipience. Every scientific compound must share 100% between them i.e. ratio 70:30, 97:3, 50:50 etc. But in the Incarnation, Jehovah must do it in the supra empirical style of the supernatural. Science understands it not. Faith does. Amen.                                                                                                                                                                

As the Word, Jesus is the spiritual alimentation. Psalm 105:40 “The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.” Jesus asseverated in the Book of John 6:31-58 how that He is the spiritual nourishment. “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst” [John 6:35]. The word ‘life’ is zoe (dzow-ay’) ‘1. life-above i.e. Eternal life 2. epithet of Jesus (John 14). The word ‘never’ is ou me (ou may’) ‘a double negative strengthening the denial, “not at all”.’ It is impossible to give this kind of absolute assurance concerning spiritual satiation. The fact that God has the attribute to perform the impossible makes it so easy to read the asseverative, “he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst” from Jesus.

                In all the Scripture no creature is suffered to be believed on, save Jesus. Why? John 3:13 clearly quotes Jesus, And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. How, please, tell me somebody, can a man visibly be seen on this terra firma, and at the same time be visible to be given divine adoration in the celestial assizes? A conundrum, incontestably gazing at man, so nonplused! He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God [John 3:18]. The epithet “only begotten,” is monogenes (mon-og-en-ace’) ‘only-born, i.e. sole, unique (the only one of the Kind).’ This is what Jesus, the Word of God, betokens!

The Word of God is the Bread of eternal Life

                1Corinthians 10:16 says, The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? Paul teaches concerning the Bread from heaven, For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: 24) And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25) After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 26) For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come [1Cor 11:23-26]. The partaking of this communion ritualism is an absolute latria of Jesus, the True Word of God.

The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit are of same life essence

                The Word of God is the eternal life. John 5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; meaning that the same eternal life essence found in the Father is attributable to the Son. ‘Life’ in this verse is zoe. In John 10:10, the Bible says, The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:28, And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. Jesus’ avowal being that, “they shall never perish,” is a pointer to His Deity.Only God can make this eternal declaration, owing to the fact that He alone will maintain that life. Jesus made it, using a personal pronoun, being the Personage of Divinity.

               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!”

SOTERIOLOGY MINUS JESUS [II]

(…continued from part one…)


II) The words of Jesus in John 15:5 which reads, “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing;” speaks of divine mutuality of abidance. How can this actuation i.e. the mutuality of abidance be perfected by Jesus? It is simply because without Him there is no salvation. Without soteriological doability, the Adamic race is doomed. Who are the ‘burnt branches’ of the 6th verse? Could it be in reference to His disciples? Verse 3, which says, “Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you;” is in reference to His disciples, ergo, they could not lose their salvation.

Abiding branches are absolutely saved souls

I have here a commentary on John 15:5-6: “What did Jesus mean by these symbolic words about vine branches being burned? These words have been interpreted in at least three ways: (1) The “burned” branches are Christians who have lost their salvation. (But this contradicts many passages, e.g., 3:16,36; 5:24; 10:28-29; Rom 8:1.) (2) The “burned” branches represent Christians who will lose rewards but not salvation at the judgment seat of Christ (1 Cor 3:15). (But Jesus spoke here of dead branches; such a branch is thrown away and withers.) (3) The “burned” branches refer to professing Christians who, like Judas, are not genuinely saved and therefore are judged. Like a dead branch, a person without Christ is spiritually dead and therefore will be punished in eternal fire (cf. Matt 25:46). Judas was with Jesus; he seemed like a “branch.” But he did not have God’s life in him; therefore he departed; his destiny was like that of a dead branch. (from Bible Knowledge Commentary/Old Testament Copyright © 1983, 2000 Cook Communications Ministries; All rights reserved.)”

Soteriology wraps us, eternally, in His righteousness.

The Bible is so clear about who Jesus Christ is. Jeremiah 23:6, “In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” I do have here an interesting commentary. “[And this is his name whereby he shall be called. THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.] I shall give the Hebrew text of this important passage: w­zeh shemow °­sher yiqr­°ow Yahweh tsidqeenuw, which the Septuagint translates as follows, Kai touto to onoma autou ho kalesei auton Kurios, Iosedek, “And this is his name which the Lord shall call him, Josedek.”

Dahler translates the text thus:
Et voici le nom dont on l’appellera:
L’Eternel, Auteur de notre felicite.
“And this is the name by which he shall be called; The Lord, the Author of our happiness.”

Dr. Blayney seems to follow the Septuagint; he translates thus, “And this is the name by which Yahweh shall call him, OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” (Adam Clarke’s Commentary, Electronic Database. Copyright © 1996, 2003, 2005, 2006 by Biblesoft, Inc. All rights reserved.)

Adam Clarke felt for those whose contrary view see this verse as a scriptural cursor to Christ’s Divinity. I quote from his commentary, "I doubt not that some persons will be offended with me for depriving them, by this translation, of a favourite argument for proving the Divinity of our Saviour from the Old Testament. But I cannot help it; I have done it with no ill design, but purely because I think, and am morally sure, that the text, as it stands, will not properly admit of any other construction.” 

My understanding of this Scripture is that, it speaks of the Christ being the righteousness of Christians, ergo, His Divinity. Even if I have to agree with Adam Clarke, in that Christ is designated “Our Righteousness” by Yahweh, what does it bespoken? Yahweh’s use of the possessive ‘Our’ makes the Christ, the Divine Righteousness of both the Eternal Father and the Holy Spirit! Now, which is more awe inspiring, that Christ is the righteousness of Adamic humans or the righteousness of the Divinity of the Father and the Holy Spirit? So, Adam Clarke, whether this Jeremiah 23:6 says Christ is the righteousness of His body, the Church, or that of the Eternal Ones, it means the same: for Jesus Christ, by the understanding of this Scripture, is very God of very God. Amen!

Incontrovertible is the facticity that Jesus is the key to eternal salvation. Acts 4:11-12 “This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12) Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” These four verbal words, ‘was set at nought,’ from this verse, is one Greek word, exoutheneo (ex-ou-the-ne’-ō), meaning: ‘contemptible, despise, least esteemed.’ The next word is ‘head’ and it is kephale (ke-fa-lee’) which has the figurative meaning of ‘source, origin; the head (as the part most readily taken hold of) [from the primary kapto “in the sense of seizing”].’ ‘Salvation’ is soteria (sō-tee-riy’-a) ‘1. (the state of) safety. 2. (the quality of) preservation from harm and danger. 3. (properly, abstract) salvation (i.e. an act of rescue or saving). 4. (specifically) Salvation from Moral Failure and Death into Eternal Life through the Anointed-One, Jesus (Yeshua).’ While ‘name,’ onoma (o’-no-ma) is ‘authority, character,’ ‘saved’ is sozo (sō’-zō), meaning: ‘to save, i.e. deliver or protect.’

Get born again. Say this simple prayer, believing it with all your heart. Say:

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

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.

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!”

Righteousness (3)

In Jesus we become the righteousness of God (2Cor. 5:21)

(Continued from part two…)

3)            “I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness” [Romans 6:19]. The word ‘yield’ is paristemi (par-is’-tay-mee) (or prolonged paristano par-is-tan’-o): ‘1. to stand beside 2. (transitively) to exhibit, proffer 3. (specially) recommend 4. (figuratively) substantiate 5. (intransitively) to be at hand (or ready), aid.’ Righteousness is truly an exhibitory stand that substantiates your new life as a born again child of the Almighty. You are already saved. What is expected is your Godly exhibited stance. The ‘righteousness’ here is dikaiosunē and the ‘holiness’ is hagiasmos (hag-ee-as-mos’) defined by Thayer Definition as: ‘consecration, purification; the effect of consecration; sanctification of heart and life.’

                It is not our righteousness, as the Bible instructs in Ephesians 4:24, “And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true.” The verb ‘put on’ is enduo (en-doo’-o) ‘to invest with clothing.’ The adjective ‘new’ is kainos (kai-nos’) ‘new (especially in freshness);’ and ‘create’ is ktizo (ktid’-zo) ‘to fabricate, i.e. found (form originally).’ Righteousness is a toga, a state of being, as a matter of fact. It is a toga that remains ever fresh all because the eternal LORD keeps it an eternal reality. Jesus tells us in Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” The truth is that one cannot hunger after these virtues without being born again.

“Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” [2Peter 3:13]. Whose righteousness? God’s, of course! The word ‘dwelleth’ is the Greek katoikeo (kat-oi-ke’-ō): ‘to house permanently, i.e. reside.’ An inherent permanence of righteousness does not mark the ways of the present progenies of Adam. It was lost in Eden. If man, through the spiritual rejuvenation, finds in the soteriological package a Godly righteousness, it is most definitely, of the finished work of the Author of salvation -Jesus Christ. In the next 14th verse of 2Peter chapter 3, the writer mentions ‘without spot and blameless.’  

Someone may ask what it means to be ‘without spot and blameless,’ and whether it implies the loss of heavenly citizenry or not. It does not. Spots and blames rob one of crowns in heaven. 1Corinthians 3:12-15, Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13) Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 14) If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15) If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

                The righteous walk receives the crowns of gold, silver or precious stones; while that of unrighteousness is reduced to worthless ashes of the hay, wood and stubble. Verse 15 intimates of a loss and that nevertheless his salvation is a surety. It is a gift. The word of God says, For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance (Romans 11:29). ‘Gifts’ is charisma (khar’-is-mah) ‘1. a (divine) gratuity, i.e. deliverance (from danger or passion) 2. (specially), a (spiritual) endowment 3. (subjectively) religious qualification 4. (objectively) miraculous faculty.’ The abstract ‘calling’ is klesis (klay`-sis) 1. a calling 2. (specially) a divine calling 3. (figuratively) an invitation 4. (by extension) a name.’

The adjective ametameletos (am-et-am-el’-ay-tos) is the Greek for ‘without repentance,’ meaning: ‘irrevocable.’ Soteriology is firmly fashioned in absolute security, courtesy of Divine protocol. Apostles, pastors, evangelists, teachers (of the word) and prophets are called forever. I cannot read of any man of God who retired out of old age. When the Nigerian government tried to make an incursion into the ecumenism, it was Pastor E.A. Adeboye, head of the RCCG that unfortunately succumbed to that pressure by someone who (unfortunately still, a pastor of RCCG) that tried to enforce the ungodly incursion. In the same vain, an unregenerated soul, heeding the call to become a Christian, can never lose this new status of Divine Paternity of the Most High Jehovah. Amen!

THIS IS CHRISTIANITY. JESUS DIED TO BRING IT INTO REALITY.

                You can put on the righteousness of Jesus by getting born again. Say this simple prayer, meaning it from your heart:

“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died 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!”
