FAITH RESPONSIBLE (I)

hebrews-12-2

Every act of man is a reaction to the prevalent force from two entities of good and evil. Man was made to be a believer. We know that not everything is to be believed; man, hence, is accountable for that which he has made himself to live by. Amen.

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God,” says Hebrews 12:2. The word ‘looking’, aphoraō (af-or-ah’-o), comes from apo (apo’) meaning: ‘of separation; “off”, that is, away (from something near), in various senses (of place, time, or relation; literally or figuratively)’; and horaō (hor-ah’-o) ‘(Properly) to stare at, that is, (by implication) to discern clearly (physically or mentally); by extension to attend to; by Hebraism to experience; passively to appear’. From Thayer Definition: ‘looking’ means ‘to turn the eyes away from other things and fix them on something’, and from Strong’s Definition: ‘to consider attentively’. If it says ‘looking’ then it whips up the spirit of continuity of this act of faith. ‘Unto’ is eis (ice): ‘towards; to or into (indicating the point reached or entered), of place, time, or (figuratively) purpose (result, etc.)’. Our focus must, scripturally speaking, be a continual reaching out to Jesus.

The word ‘author’ is called, in the Greek, archēgos (ar-khay-gos’) which comes from archē (ar-khay’) (properly abstract) a commencement, or (concrete) chief ‘ and agō (ag’-o) ‘properly to lead; by implication to bring, drive, (reflexively) go, (specifically) pass (time), or (figuratively) induce’. This makes archēgos ‘the chief leader, and not a writer. What is ‘finisher’? It is the Greek word, teleiōtēs (tel-i-o-tace’): ‘a perfector, a completer, that is, consummater‘. Faith is an established understanding in the heart which one sees as the solution to problems. The foundational ground of faith is of utmost importance. To the unlearned heart, faith can come from anywhere, and to such mind, it is debatable when you say that true faith stems from the knowledge of the word of God, in the name of Jesus. Your faith cannot stand the true test of global vicissitudes outside Christ based faith. All other ground, as the hymn renders, is sinking sand.

Do we have scriptures that agree with ‘looking’? Isaiah 8:17 reads, “And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.” Chapter 45:22 of Isaiah says, “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” Prophet Micah, in the 7th chapter of the 7th verse of his prophetic book also agrees with, “Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.”

Abraham showed unwavering faith according to God’s will

Definitely, it will take the collaboration with the One with spiritual disposition, for us to expend faith. This takes us to John 1:29, “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” Our faith, exercised, can only find a surest footing in the One who can find a lasting solution to our sinful nature. John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” Even the father of faith developed his faith power from the only source as we read in John 8:56, “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.” Abraham made contact with the Author of pistis (pis’-tis), the Greek word for faith. It is a feminine noun –an indication of its profitable productivity. It is defined as: ‘persuasion, that is, credence; (morally) conviction (of religious truth, or the truthfulness of God or a religious teacher), (especially) reliance upon Christ for salvation; (abstractly) constancy in such profession; (by extension) the system of religious (Gospel) truth itself’.

images_051

The uniqueness of faith is so evident. It is captured in Hebrews 11:3, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Ten times God spoke at the creationism, God being fully aware that absolutely nothing could challenge His words of creation. God, at creation, exhibited faith in Himself. We cannot draw perfect faith from our being. Impossible. Atheists and Humanists will erroneously believe otherwise.

Philippians 3:20, “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:” tells us where Christians come from, spiritually. The neuter ‘conversation’ is politeuma (pol-it’-yoo-mah): ‘a community, that is, (abstractly) citizenship (figuratively)’. The Holy Spirit made it known to Paul who failed to disbelieve, so, he wrote, “Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing” [2Timothy 4:8].

LOVE (What’s It?) part two

God-is-LOve1-300x236 

                                   Out of the mouths of babes….

(…continued from the 1st part)                                                                                                                  In verse 5 of 1Corinthians 13, we have ‘behave itself unseemly’, aschēmoneō (as-kay-mon-eh’-o) is: ‘to be (that is, act) unbecoming’. ‘Seeketh not her own’ means ‘does not engage in things that would not be for the common good’. ‘Easily provoked’ is paroxunō (par-ox-oo’-no): ‘to sharpen’ i.e. (allow a sharp, rapid, acid anger in you). ‘Thinketh’, logizomai (log-id’-zom-ahee): ‘to take an inventory, that is, estimate (literally or figuratively)’. ‘Evil’ is kakos meaning: ‘worthless, injurious, depravity’.

god-is-my-first-love

”Thinketh no evil’ means, according to Clark’s Commentary, “Believes no evil where no evil seems”. From Jamieson, Fausset & Brown’s Commentary, “imputeth not evil [ALFORD]; literally, “the evil” which actually is there (Pro 10:12; 1Pe 4:8 (refs2)). Love makes allowances for the falls of others, and is ready to put on them a charitable construction. Love, so far from devising evil against another, excuses “the evil” which another inflicts on her [ESTIUS]; doth not meditate upon evil inflicted by another [BENGEL]; and in doubtful cases, takes the more charitable view [GROTIUS]”. And I concur with an, “Amen!”

God Love is True

Verse 6 says, ‘Rejoiceth not in iniquity’, because love will rather exult the verity and the truth but frown at falsehood. ‘Love’ in verse 7 covers, endures, all afflictions, without complaining. Believes all that are not palpably false. Hopes for the better even when others are tired of hoping. Endures patiently to the end. Verse 8 has ‘never’ oudepote (oo-dep’-ot-eh) ‘not even at any time, that is, never at all,’ and ‘faileth’, ekpiptō (ek-pip’-to) ‘to drop away; specifically be driven out of one’s course; figuratively to lose, become inefficient’. Love will never go out of fashion. It is truly eternal. Reverend Chris Okotie, in a teaching of his, said, “If you ask me the definition of God, I’ll tell you it is simply ‘love’.” How absolutely concise and very correct you are, my dear Pastor! One can only access this agapē of God when it is channelled through the energy of the Holy Spirit via an experiential knowledge of Jesus, the anointing Anointed.

1-john-4-8-a

Jesus exhibited the spirit of longsuffering when He patiently taught His disciples to fit into the Kingdom of God that was at hand. Kindness of agapē drove Him to heal the blind man who had spent years beside the Bethesda pool, and for which same reason He fed about 18,000 people who attended His crusade. I just do not see why He will harbour any recourse to envy anybody, being the Creator of all in existence. Those who have attained the spiritual maturity should not for any reason wrap themselves at any point in time in the toga of jealousy. When you read where Jesus says, “Verily, verily I tell you…” He is pointedly making an intimation of the fact that He is not a braggart. God vaunteth not. Jesus is so humble you hardly see any marked difference when found in the midst of His disciples. He never puffed Himself up.

agape

The gentleman in Jesus would not permit Him to take steps of unbecomingness. Whatever Jesus sought for Himself was definitely for the common good of all. Selflessly, Jesus died for all sinners. Knowing what was at stake, Jesus did not allow the acidity of the provocative anger to burn Him out, enduring the grueling, sanguinary death of the cross. “Then said Jesus,” in Luke 23:34, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do…” in order to perfect ‘thinketh no evil’ thereby imputing no evil on His captors; a classic proof of a genuine adorable Lover.

god-is-love-1-638

The Lord Jesus did not praise their business acumen at money changing, neither did He extol Judas’ business venture. He overturn the table, whipped them because, “ye have made it a den of thieves”, reminding them, “My house shall be called the house of prayer;” [Matthew 21:13]; and told him in Matthew 26:24, “The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It had been good for that man if he had not been born”.

the risen christ

He swallowed death, stopping it from taking me to hell.

Twelve things do distinguish love. Twelve is the number of our Lord Jesus. One man of God defines agapē thus: “A love called out of the heart of the lover on account of the value the lover has placed on the object of his love”. It is truly a commitment: to take care of another person. Love, from my exegesis, is really not, “what’s it?” It is should actually be “who is it?” because Love is a Personage. The Lord Jesus epitomizes all what love is. Praise the Lord!

LOVE (What’s It?) part one

GOD Is 'LOVE' - 1 John 4 verses 7-8

It does not find its true delineation in the realm of emotionalism. No doubt about the fact that emotion can be symptomatic of love, but is it not very well known medically that a symptom of tiredness does not necessarily serve as the diagnosis for malaria?

Our emotions are not stable. They do have the tendency to fizzle out at an advent of another experiential stage of existence. Emotions often becloud the good sense of true judgment of a prevailing issue. Feelings ride on the wings of volatility for prominence and survival. Your feelings cannot be wholly trusted.

love 3

Love is not a feeling per se. It is a state of being. Love, actually, is a Personage. In the book of 1John 4:8, it reads: “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love”. The 19th verse: “We love him, because he first loved us.” ‘Loveth’, ‘love’ and ‘loved’ (verse 19) is the Greek agapaō (ag-ap-ah’-o): ‘to love (in a social or moral sense)’; it is the verb form of agapē. ‘Knoweth’ is ginōskō (ghin-oce’-ko) ‘to learn to know, come to know, get a knowledge of, perceive’; ‘to “know” (absolutely)’. ‘Love’ in verse eight is agapē (ag-ah’-pay): ‘brotherly love, affection, good will, love, benevolence; love feasts’. Agapē is a feminine noun, therefore, very productive. No one knew love until God showed it. The same love moved God to descend from His most highly exalted heaven to save the lost souls.

God-Is-Love 2

Love, no matter what!

The grammatical femininity of agapē is indicative of worship. Whatever receives veneration has become a husband, spiritually. Jesus, who receives worship, is espoused to the Church {Ephesians 1:22, “And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church”; Ephesians 5:25-32, where verse 25 reads: “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it”}. Nimrod has the appellation of Baal and one of the meanings of Baal is ‘husband’. Wherever you see the symbolism of the moon, crescent or the sun, know that it could be a replication of Baal worship. It should not surprise anyone that Diana worship involves libidinousness. Diana is the same person as Semiramis, the moon goddess wife of Nimrod, the Baal. Anyone who comes to Jehovah God with the agapē of Christ will be doing so with the role of a worshipping stance.

 

agape1

 

The word, ‘charity’ in 1Corinthians 13:1-13 is Agapē, where we see the credentials of love. Faith is so vital that without it none can receive anything from God. We even understand that faith is what God employed at creationism. Hope keeps our faith at the highest degree of its zeal but love is the greatest among the three: “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity” [1Corinthians 13:13]. “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment” [Mark 12:30]. Love, unlike virtues like hope and faith, is all encompassing. It is the very essence of God. You show faith to exhibit God, but when you love you are God in disguise. It is for this reason esoteric cultism enjoins its initiated ones to cultivate the habit of philanthropy in order to balance the good with their evil deeds.

God is a Spirit

God is a Spirit. Love, truly expressed, must flow from Him. You cannot manifest genuine love unless it is energized by the Holy Spirit. Verse three of 1Corinthians 13:3-8 reads, “And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.” Esoterically fueled philanthropy is an attempt in otiosity. Verse 4, “Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up;” where ‘suffereth long’, makrothumeō (mak-roth-oo-meh’-o) means: ‘to be long spirited, that is, (objectively) forbearing or (subjectively) patient’. ‘Kind’ is chrēsteuomai (khraste-yoo’-om-ahee) ‘to show oneself useful, that is, act benevolently’. ‘Envieth’ is zēloō (dzay-lo’-o) ‘to have warmth of feeling for or against’; while ‘not’ oú (ou), is absolutely negative adverb no or not’. ‘Vaunteth’, perpereuomai (per-per-yoo’-om-ahee) Middle voice from πέρπερος perperos (braggart; perhaps by reduplication of the base of peran (per’-an) –which   comes from– peirō (to “pierce”); through (as adverb or preposition), that is, across’.) means: ‘to boast’; ‘not’ is oú (ou). ‘Puffed up’, phusioō (foo-see-o’-o) means: ‘in the primary sense of blowing; to inflate, that is, (figuratively) make proud (haughty)’.       (…to be concluded…)

THE GAME IS UP!!! (part two)

…continued from part one                                                                                                    The Lord brought us closer when He taught, “When ye pray, say, Our Father who art in heaven….” A brilliant thinking man began to find solid stronghold to free himself from the shackles of satanic gaol, suddenly realizing that God is his Father. Be an overcoming child of God. Be wise. Capitalize on the finished work of Jesus. He went to the cross to shed a substitutionary blood for all who are born into sin. The Devil thought that was the end of the scriptural narrative. Three days! Three for the Trinity: The perfect manifestation of the Godhead. One day each for the saints of the past, present day of His incarnation, and the future days of His followers. Three days and nights for the salvation of souls who so desire.

james_4.7_kjv_picture

There was nothing the enemy could do. 1Corinthians 2:8, “Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.” Too late! The game was up! All you need is to believe and know like Paul who maintained categorically in all sincerity, “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day” [2Timothy 1:12].

 

076-pixabay-cemetery-289020

“O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” This is the rhetoric Paul puts forth in 1Corinthians 15:55. Satan did his cruelest worst to no avail. Today, as a Christian, 1John 4:4 makes crystal clear, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” The reason is found in the confidence brewing words of our Lord, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” [John 16:33]. Tell the devil, “The game is up for you. You’ve lost. You’re the loser! Speak God’s word in faith, as if you are the author of it, and he will most definitely be thrown into abject, clueless stupor. Do not be ignorant of the truth in the depressed mannerism of the jittery Israelites; do come to an aggressive conclusion of Romans 8:37, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

Ezekiel.28.14b-SatanWasAGuardianAngel1

Take the stand of Ephesians 6:13, “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” And because it is possible the preceding 14th verse enjoins, “Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;” all because the One who had overcome for you is fighting on your behalf in Revelation 6:2, “And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”

c135b625714fa2a3ab009b6616c13cd0

“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” This is found in Luke 10:19 where ‘power’ is exousia ex-oo-see’-ah): ‘privilege, that is, (subjectively) force, capacity, competency, freedom, or (objectively) mastery (concretely magistrate, superhuman, potentate, token of control), delegated influence.’ Let me explain this verse to the titillation of somebody. This is a transfer of divine power to His body: the Church, which includes you and me. The LORD has given you the authority over the knavishness of the enemy. Use it!

A crazy mistake his dubious game plan turned out to be. You cannot be too sure of your resolve when you wield a stand of marginalization towards the authority. Lucifer was too sure of himself in his insubordinate circumvention of divine authorization.

Jesus testified of your archenemy, “And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven” in Luke 10:18. The days of traumatizing you with his insufferable molestations are over. He has lost the war.

resist the devil

Resist the Devil! He’ll flee!!

I have often told Satan that I will expose him. Just get born again and throw, in faith, the word of scripture in his face. Lucifer has no solution to it now and forever! The Bible says, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” [James 4:7]. The word ‘submit’ is hupotassō (hoop-ot-as’-so): ‘to subordinate; reflexively to obey.’

Anthistēmi (anth-is’-tay-mee) is the Greek word for ‘resist’ meaning: ‘to stand against, that is, oppose.’ Then comes the word ‘flee’. It is called, in Greek, pheugō (fyoo’-go): ‘to run away (literally or figuratively); by implication to shun; by analogy to vanish.’ Lucifer, the greatest evil, will flee, looking for a way of escape at the mention of the name of JESUS! For your information, Lucifer is scared stiff of you (but he will play on your ignorant intelligence). Lucifer knows the potency of the power the Christian commands. He does everything in his insidious craftiness to incapacitate you. He debilitates you by keeping you from the use of the name of Jesus.

The game he started is over. Amen!

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

THE GAME IS UP!!! (Part one)

7560078bb2cbe8f602e3e3e1e3a72525

Christians are more powerful than they know and Satan is aware of it

He had lost the game he started. He forgot that God does not play games. God only thinks, speaks and does things true. Who told you, Lucifer, that you could change the course of divine operation?

Lucifer was extravagantly reckless in his utilization of his God given freewill to all intelligent beings. His iniquitous clamour pitched him against the will of the Divinity. Disaster of a cataclysmic proportion! Satan, you started a game you could never enjoy, continue or receive any aid in playing it to a positive conclusion. So woefully you failed. The spirit of stupid ignorance has a way of goading its slave into sheer fruitless audacious degenerate aberrancy. In this state, you will think, even in the full glare of hopelessness, that there is yet a card (nonexistent) or move that you can play, till you are absolutely wrecked.

03-032

In the day iniquity was found in you….

It was too late for the great Lucifer when God prophesied in Ezekiel 28:15, “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.” And an earlier, “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” of Isaiah 14:12, was another lamentation of an extinction of a perfect creation of God. In his demented crave for deification, he pilfered the abstraction of the sun as his emblem of worship. As the ‘son of the morning,’ he is an angelic creation. ‘Morning’ speaks of the brightness of light.

morning_star

JESUS is the Morning Star

Jesus is the light (John 1:4-9), the morning star (Revelation 2:28, 22:16), and even the eternal light to the new earth (Revelation 21:23). Knowing fully well how devoid of ubiquity he is, the only way he could deceive Cain was to take him to the east of Eden where the ubiquitous sun manifested. He chose a place called Nod. Wrong initial step tends to serve as a magnetic influence of an attraction of a continuity of evil junctures. The name ‘Nod’ means: ‘wandering (of aimless fugitive), vagrancy, exile.’ Satanic worship of the worst order of shenanigan machinations had been sown, proving Lucifer to be the original Machiavellian prince of darkness.

In his exhilarating fashion of catechism, the ebullient teacher of the Bible, Rev Chris Okotie, in his exegesis of Genesis 1:14 submitted that, “There’s no third light. The Antichrist is not a light.” Ponderous a manna for human cogitation. “Jesus,” he said, “is the greater sun light while Adam is the lesser moon light,” in conclusion, “you are the stars,” addressing the Household Of God Church born again congregation. Very truthfully apropos, I do agree.

nimrod

Hunter before (In defiance of) the LORD

The genesis of universal sun worship took place in Babel. Nimrod went by the epithet ‘hunter before the LORD.’ He hunted humans for the sacrificial worship of Satan. Nimrod, who was bel or Baal, was also the sun god. Lucifer used him to win the earth to himself. His wife, Semiramis, was deified as the moon goddess. With the deification of Tamuuz, their son, the Babylonian trinity of idolatry was consummated. There is hardly any idolatry that does not take its seminality from Nimrodic sun worship. The saintly haloes drawn on the heads of pious ones is of Nimrod: for it has no scripture endorsement.

philippians-2_8

But for the divinely authorization of the blood sacrificial ritual, many would have died and thrown into hell. God made a way of repentance with it. This corroborates 2Peter 3:9, “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” As many as displayed an aversion for sinful acts, those are the ones God has given an opportunity to steer clear of divine judgment. Too many humans keep defying God. Satan is winning, it seems. Then, one day, the prophecy of all prophecies was consummated in Luke 1:31, “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.” Amen!!

The Mystery Of Wedlock (2nd part)

83806872a148f5cf422d5dbd2cbe3f39

         Satan, as the ape of Jehovah, waited for the reign of Nimrod to perpetrate the travesty of divinity. Nimrod established one universal religion, making him the true portrayal of the Antichrist. He, with his wife, Semiramis, and son, Tammuz formed the heinous trinity. Nimrod was the ruler of the world. He led them in a sacerdotal office and was worshipped as the sun god, Baal. Semiramis was appointed to the deified position which Eve, through her faithfulness to the covenant, rejected. His title of Baal means: ‘owner, lord and husband.’ The religious worship initiated the worshippers into an atrocious wedlock of esotericism. They became espoused to Nimrod spiritually. Lucifer understood the spiritual implication. Nimrod was Lucifer’s priest, hence, every obeisant gesture to Nimrod’s religious worship is in actuality an evil worship of the Devil himself. All married to Evil!

semiramis

Semiramis is Lucifer’s woman of his church

Many do not know what this conjugal phenomenon is all about. The design is for Christians only. The redeemed. It is God’s secret to bestow eternal salvation on man. God’s true love is revealed in His espousal of the redeemed. One must, as a matter of scriptural fact, be wedded to Jesus to receive the gift of heavenly citizenship. A good husband who has a gift for his wife learnt it from the Most High. Is there any proof that only born again Christians enters into this wedlock? The propitiatious blood of Jesus washes the born again justifiably sinless before the judging seat of the Creator. Adam entered into the primeval wedlock with the pristine woman, both of them quite sinless. The pristine couple were of the same Parent: the LORD God. Christians have one Holy Spirit, one Saviour and one Father. Any other marriage is a mere grotesque mimicry of God’s glorious institution.

aa02917f7a5d44a08af1be31c0f3b7e4

This mystical wedlock does not come to any termination. 2Corinthians 5:17 states that, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Old things are the natural sinful you. All things that ‘are become new’ speaks of your new spiritual existence. Verse twenty-one makes it crystal clear who owns the newness and whose righteousness you are wrapped in. You cannot lose your salvation as long as it has a connectivity with marriage for: of divorce Jesus catechized, “Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder” (Matthew 19:6).

When asked in the 7th verse why Moses taught to divorce, Jesus answered in the 8th, “He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.” God is a covenant keeper. Remember the scriptural caviar in Revelation 14:11 of whosoever receives the cultic name of the Antichrist is damned forever? So does the wedlock with Jesus! Should you still be in the dark concerning the divine security of the believer please search for my post titled, “Why Go Aminianistic Soteriology” and another one is “My Salvation (what can happen to it?)”

85617c03f5084780dcc692bd225dee32

God knows that if He leaves the maintenance of the redeemed life of Jesus us to, the impossibility stems from the fact that we lack the spiritual element of its sustenance. Jesus points out categorically in 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.” What a good Jehovah God we serve! He beheld our natural weakness even as He was designing our future eternal blissfulness and decided to serve as the inn-keeping Caretaker. Hallelujah! “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]. Selah. I rest my case.

The Mystery Of Wedlock (1st part)

038de14edf55c152664486fd11d0e040

The mystery of conjugal bond has an evincive appropriateness in Eve’s incapability to divorce Adam. It was the practical reality of the prototype union, lying equable in the bosom of the eternal Father, awaiting the historical Spirit-anointing of participatory wedlock between the Lamb and the Church, the annalistic representation of which will eventuate in the celestial realm of the seated Majesty.

The first woman was made exclusively for the man, his rib having been the main component of the creation of the woman. Rev. Chris Okotie, in his exegesis of the extraction of the rib, taught that only the rib looked curved enough to represent the rainbow which God used to make a covenant with man. In the same vein, going by this understanding of the rib connection, a binding conjugal relationship was bonded by the utilization of the man’s rib. Marriage covenant. The woman was made while Adam, the man, lay asleep just as Jesus, his prototype, would. His sinless sleep is a prophetic adumbration of the Calvary’s death of atonement leading to a lying in the tomb to a necessitation of the standing up of the Church. God, her Father-in-law, would, no doubt, have briefed her about her responsibility. She understood. When the temptation arose, she dutifully stuck with her husband.

Eve did behave irresponsibly. She, nonetheless, deserves the proper encomiums for keeping God’s dream alive. God needed to enter into an everlasting relationship with a species of intelligent beings to prove Lucifer’s guilt and sentence to eternal hellish confinement. The first woman fell but she remembered her first love. She remembered the true unwavering love and its lavish engulfing radiation. There was no mistaking the reassuring dispositional affection towards her and the overpowering gentle attachment that she experienced during that walk with the most High. She would rather remain the follower of the God-ordained mortal dust of an Adam than to be a tiaraed goddess of the cosmos.

Lucifer’s beastly revelry would have known no bounds if his chicanery had earned him a triumphant conscription of the original Adamic female. She would have been his most perfect queen. Albeit it would not have made any difference to God’s intended purport, her apostasy would have afforded Satan an expediency to spread the potential importance of seeking spiritual aid from her esoteric deification.

The exclusiveness of the erection of a female for the man’s use highlights the legality of the union. The word ‘made’, in Hebrew, is bânâh (baw-naw’) in the book of Genesis 2:22 “And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.” Bânâh is an architectural term which means: ‘to build, rebuild, establish, cause to continue, to build a house (i.e., establish a family).’ Remember Jesus’ divine promise of Matthew 16:18, “….I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” The woman is God’s own building. She is God’s property; an institution created for the portrayal of God’s faithfulness. By the time God brought the woman to Adam he was already standing in the justified rectitude of the dominant ruler of the earth. His consent, as God’s representative, was needed for the consummation of God’s objective. The woman became Adam’s property. Man’s ownership of his wife cannot be viewed in a derogatory manner. He owns her the very manner Christ legally owns the espoused Church.

‘Woman’ in Genesis 2:22 is ishshâh (ish-shaw’): ‘woman, wife, female.’ With an understanding that the Church is the body of Christ it is apropos to analogize that the woman, as the husband’s body, does surround him, hence, his bodyguard. The Church guards the word of God. The Eden ishshâh was a strong woman. Her strength comes from her husband, the lord of the earth, who prefigures Jesus, the true Builder by whose power ‘the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.’ Amen! Knowing that He was leaving, Jesus had to empower His body with the pronouncement of Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

                               The rib is reminiscent of the rainbow covenant

We form a mystical bond by the token of the rib. The covenant makes the wedlock a great mystery. It is owed to God the covenant Keeper. God’s irrevocable involvement is the invincibility of the invisible stance of wedlock. Ephesians 5:30 reads, “For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.” The 31st verse reveals an earthly phenomenal, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mot\her, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.” Verse 32 caps it with: “This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”

I am born again. What next? (2)

joshua1-8

Four things God expects from a born again Christian. They are not designed to carry out the maintenance of your rebirth. They serve as spiritual lubrication geared towards the smooth running of your life. They aid your growth from Christian babyhood (brephos, in Greek) to the mature stature of what the Greek calls huios. Here are the four simple things:

* Pray only to your Father in heaven always (1Thessalonians 5:17); and in the name of Jesus (John 20:31; Acts 2:3, 3:6, 16:18; Ephesians 5:20; Philippians 2:10). As your heavenly Father, He wants to hear you because He loves you very much. He is a God of legality. The things you say have legal recordings against your enemy, therefore, talk to your Father! Amen!

* Read the Bible. Joshua 1:8 instructs, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” The Bible is God’s protocol. In it is God’s word, which is His power. The more you read His word the more you know the mind of God.

* Hebrews 10:25, 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.” The only place of Christian assemblage is in the Church. The language of this verse is a commandment. A Christian goes to Church to refuel his spiritual tank and to recharge the potency of the battery his new life. Church attendance is of utmost pith of Christian living.

Jesus-Commissions-the-Disciples-Mark-16_15-18

* The fourth is found in the Book of Mark 16:15, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” This is the essence of being the Lord’s soldier and His ambassador. Tell everyone you meet that Jesus is the saviour. Anyone who believes God’s word wants to become His child. Pray the prayer or salvation with the person. Get them born again.

judgment-seat-of-christ-3-638

The good things you did before you got born again will earn you only earthly rewards. They do not enter into the celestial record of righteousness. You start to work for God only after you go through spiritual rebirth. This is when you can be said to be laying treasures in heaven. 1Corinthians 3:13-15 says, “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.” I am doing everything to receive my rewards of gold. What are you doing? Work for God. It pays. The scripture attests to it.

                  WE GOT THE SINFUL NATURE FROM OUR PRISTINE PARENTS

The sin of Adam which Lucifer inveigled his wife to commit plunged his descendants into the spiritual chaos man is still battling with all these six millennia. His disobedient act was an eradication of the innocency of his sinlessness at creation. He plunged disastrously into the dispensation of conscience thereby catapulting the entire human race from the dispensation of innocence.

11-god-as-artist-7-638

                                  HE is the first Artist: HE sculptured Adam

Having created Adam in His likeness and, especially, in His image, God was attracted to the impaired state of the image (Christ) and got the fallen Adamic family out of the cataclysmic mess (the soul that sinneth, it shall die -Ezekiel 18:4, 20). God had to slaughter innocent animals to atone for their sin. Even in the stupidity of Cain’s obstinate apostasy God’s munificence reached out to him and offering him the scripture of Genesis 4:7, “If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door.” Here the word ‘sin’ is chaṭṭâ’âh or chaṭṭâ’th (khat-taw-aw’) ‘an offence (sometimes habitual sinfulness), and its penalty, occasion, sacrifice, or expiation; also (concretely) an offender.’ Chaṭṭâ’âh is an allusion to a ‘sin offering.’

‘Lieth’ is râbats (raw-bats’): ‘to crouch (on all four legs folded, like a recumbent animal); by implication to recline, repose, brood, lurk, imbed.’ ‘Lieth,’ conceptualizes the adumbration of the ultimate sin offering that the Lord Jesus must undergo to save the world of sin in His bid to save the lost souls.

Those who are born again have utilized the rational nature of their being to build on the solid rock of Luke 6:47-48. The people of the 49th verse have forsaken Jesus, the surest foundation, and are erroneously in the oblivion of the fact that all other grounds (religions) are sinking sand to hellish gaol.

The very second one gets born again he has been translated into the kingdom of God (Colossians 1:13). It is permanently eternal (John 3:16, 10:28-28; 1Corinthians 5:17). You are God’s child (Romans 8:15, 16 & Galatians 4:6). You have been enlisted into the army of Jesus Christ (2Timothy 2:3 & Revelation 19:19). Into the ambassadorial office of the kingdom of Christ, you have been elevated to hold (1Corinthians 5:20). You are a carrier of the Godhead (John 14:17, 23; Romans 8:11; 1Corinthians 3:16).

          Fight the Christian ‘Good Fight‘Finish your Course’ & ‘Keep the Faith

The militarized disposition of the born again person is purely spiritual. He is not expected to take up guns and bombs in the expansion of Christianity as was brutally waged by the Pope’s Catholicism, led by Ignatius Loyola. Neither is it to take the semblance of the known Islamist jihads led by Mohammad. The Christian understands the formidability of the unseen satanic forces of demonism which is propelled by the enmity towards God’s kingdom. We do not engage in physical attack on human enemies. We confront the demonic involvement. The Bible says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

The armament is found in verses 13-19. It is for this reason we have the words of 2Corinthians 10:3-6, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4) (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6) And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” The Christian wars are fought on our knees.

As His ambassadors we preach the kerygma; persuading them, using nothing but the revealed theological scriptures, to bring them into the knowledge of the truth. The truth is a Personage -Jesus, the Christ. Amen.

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

How To Get Born Again (part five)

 

jesus_inside12

Man is known to be inherently evil. Psalm 51:5 informs that before I was born, when I was just a foetus, I was already a sinner! How can I then, in the authentication of Scripture, expect a one who has been smirched by sinfulness to save himself? Every natural man is a filthy rag. Any teaching of celestial citizenry which is enhanced by an avatar or self-help, and marginalizing the free gift of the gory cross should be jettisoned. It embraces Humanistic didacticism.

Sahih Bukhari & the Qur’an speak for Mohammedan Islam

A proof of Islam’s spiritual erroneous evil is captured in sura 46:9, “Say: “I am no bringer of new-fangled doctrine among the messengers, nor do I know what will be done with me or with you. I follow but that which is revealed to me by inspiration; I am but a Warner open and clear.” Islam’s most popular Hadith by Al-Bukhari quotes Abu Muraira’s testimony of Mohammad’s proclamation towards the end of his life saying, “Oh people of Quraysh, and you sons of Abdul Manaf and you Abbas the son of Abdul Mutallib, and you Safiyyat my aunt, I cannot save you from the punishment of the Day of Resurrection...” Mohammad’s prophecy on how to go to heaven is found in Sahih Bukhari 4:52:44 “A man came to Allah’s Apostle and said, ‘Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad in reward.’ He replied, ‘I do not find such a deed. This is Mohammed’s Islam!

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…” “he that hath seen me hath seen the Father (John 14:9) No man, religious founder, avatar or from the utterance of demonic séance could ventilate the biblical quotes of Jesus. “I am the way the truth and the life…” (John 14:6); “I am the resurrection” (John 11:25); “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30); “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden…” (Matthew 11:28); I am come that they might have life…” (John 10:10); “And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven” [John 3:13]. Only Jesus, who had been before the beginning of creation, God’s protocol, mighty God, the power, wisdom and righteousness of God can take us to heaven. Jesus is the only one who can bring your spiritual rejuvenation into a reality. He said in John 15:5, 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. (Confer Acts 4:12 & Philippians 4:13)

                 A born again individual has many advantages.

* The apposite juxtaposition of the “Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” with “of him, and through him, and to him, are all things,” enables you to understand that you are too involved spiritually, hence, your spirituality is of unrivalled essence. The first thing that occurs to a born again is the obliterative act of Divinity that wipes out the original sin that has caused man’s spiritual imbalance (Genesis 6:5; Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:23, 5:12).

* Having been adopted into the divine Family of the Godhead you, the begot, can, to Satan’s chagrin, utter the endearment words of, “Abba Father!” (Romans 8:16; Isaiah 56:5; Jeremiah 3:19; 1Corinthians 2:12; Galatians 4:5-7; Ephesians 1:5; Eph 1:11-12).

* 1John 1:9 becomes operational.

* You stand in righteousness before the thrice holy God (Romans 5:17, 8:10, 10:4; 1Corinthians 1:30, 2Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 3:24; Philippians 3:9; Colossians 2:10 & Hebrews 10:14).

* Dwelling inside the new you is the Holy Spirit. What does that make you? An eternal carrier of God! Ponderous! (Ezekiel 36:27; John 14:16, 17, 23; Romans 8:9, 11; 1Corinthians 3:16; 1Corinthians 6:9; Ephesians 1:13-14).

* You are vested in the power to be exercised ecclesiastically. Luke 24:49, “And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” The word ‘power,’ is dunamis (doo’-nam-is): “force (literally or figuratively); specifically miraculous power (usually by implication a miracle itself).”

                * Dunamis gives you another power of Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions,…” which in Greek is exousia (ex-oo-see’-ah) [It is from exesti -ex’-es-tee- (in the sense of ability)] meaning: ‘privilege, that is, (subjectively) force, capacity, competency, freedom, or (objectively) mastery (concretely magistrate, superhuman, potentate, token of control), delegated influence.’ This exousia is a delegated authority which translates into an ambassadorial legality. (Proverbs 13:17; Malachi 2:7; John 20:21; Act 26:17-18).

* Above all, according to: John 3:16; 1Timothy 1:16 & 2Corinthians 5:17, you will never taste the eternal place of hellish gaol!

In the name of JESUS!

Jesus died, as the scriptures documentarily attest (Isa 26:19; Rom 8:11; 1Co 15:12-23; 2Cor 4:13; 2Co 4:14; 1Thess 4:14; Rev 1:18). He was seen around the land for forty whole days as the risen Christ (Acts 1:3) and was unchallenged, not even by the seventy-one members of the Sanhedrin, populated by the Pharisaical strictness nor by the unrelenting religious stance of Sadducees. The Bible tells us where He is seated (Psalm 110:1; Mark 16:19; Acts 2:34; Ephesians 1:20-22; Hebrews 12:2; 1Peter 3:22) in the heavenly assizes: as the sole Mediator (Job 9:33; 1Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 7:25; Heb 8:6; Heb 9:15; Heb 12:24). No Hadith can tell us where Mohammad is or how many hundreds of thousands of houris he is enjoying in heaven. Only Jesus can save. Amen!

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