PHILIPPIANS 4:19 (two)

Apostle Paul, the author of the Book of Philippians

(…continues from part one)

2)            Man is not only expected to desire the regeneration of John 3:3, of fiducial appositeness it is, to be daily exploring the Scriptures that one may know more about the Creator, Saviour and the empyreal Mediator – Jesus. Outside Jesus Christ, none comes near the throne of celestial grace. Jesus Christ is the only language God the Father speaks. Colossians 1:16-17 “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” How rich can the Entity of empyreal Majesty be? He owns every wealth of creationism. It will take scientific geniuses of global repute to give exact amount of universal wealth, the reason being that wealth continues to grow almost on daily basis. God is rich enough to make everyone on earth a trillionaire.

My God shall supply all your need. Have faith.

                You may ask, “So why is the majority of human population wreathing in abject poverty?” From the day Adam and his wife committed the original sin, man sold the earth, its wealth and dominion to the Devil. Lucifer had always craved the desideration of deification. Having employed his cruel craft, he won the divine donation of Adamic dominion to himself, therefore, is the veridicality of the Scriptural “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them” (2Corinthians 4:4). And who is this god? He is Lucifer, Satan the Devil. He does not care a hoot what happens on earth and this is the reason why when Jesus met with the god of this sinful world, it was world quite different from the world he took over from the dwellers of Eden. The world had become an unkempt wilderness. Luke 4:5-7 “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6) And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. 7) If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.”

“If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine” [Luke 4:7].

                This evil entity, I find it hard to understand his absolute, egregious boldacity. Did he not know that he was standing in the presence of the incarnate God? He did. Any romance with evil thoughts is the darkest alienation from the goodness of the LORD God. Estranged from the counsel of the Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures and wisdom of knowledge, is the spirit of malfunction; which is not a creation of one’s inordinateness; it is a punishment from the Creator Himself, and for this reason Jehovah makes sure that the evil spirit rides, mercilessly, the person of evil thoughts against the LORD God, like a horse.

                In the anomalous apotheosis of his desiderative drive against the eternally sacral mind of the LORD God, Lucifer got his inordinateness banishing him into the vagrancy of apodiabolosis – having lost his glorious, first estate – not holding the eternal Light of the Godhead but flung into absolutely pitch darkness. Cain knew no peace all his days; Judas Iscariot found himself in the straightjacket toga of Gehenna, for willing in himself to bewray the Lord of glory. The first thing Lucifer did after the fall of Adamic race was to establish covens of secret societies, to which members he gave riches and fame. But his donations come with hideous prices to pay: prices of wicked ritualism too disturbing to the soul of man. Nebuchadnezzar would tell you what manner of disgust it was going through those three aspects of divination: use of arrows (belomancy); consulting images (idolomancy or Hebraic teraphim) and looking into the liver (hepatoscopy), towards the end of his life when, as an idol worshipper, he consulted his gods for prosperity.

                You can be part of the winning Christianity of Jesus Christ. Get 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!”

FREE MORAL AGENCY [3]

(…continues from part two…)

3)            The subtlety of Satanism has sneaked an evil appeal into man’s management of his free moral agency. His first ever words of Scriptural documentation was laden with subtle evil appeal aimed at encouraging the misuse of moral agency. He asked in Genesis 3:1 “Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” And when Lucifer told the unsuspecting Woman, “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” of Genesis 3:5, she was being bewitched to misuse her free moral agency. Unfortunately, the woman capitulated. Sad.

                The Devil does not rest when it comes to going on his evil missions. He saw another target of corruption. Lucifer told him, “You don’t need to be tied to your old Dad; you are free to choose what you want; you are created a free moral agent. Break away from him and I will make you the priest, the progenitor and lord of your own people.” Cain nodded in agreement and helped Lucifer in an orchestrated stroll of perversion into free moral agency. Noah? You should know that you are free to go into vineyard planting. But your free moral agency does not support debauchery. Noah, you missed it when you chose to be led to drink a bit so much. 

“…from the roof he saw a woman washing herself” [2Samuel 11:2]

                As much as God had allowed you to marry as many women you choose albeit not morally okay, why must you take the only wife of Uriah, one of your superpatriotic soldiers? David listened to the Devil; he paid dearly for perverting the endowment of God’s free moral agent phenomenon. Ahab had the freedom of choice, but Scriptural veridicality frowns ominously on Baal worship; and Israel wallowed in spiritual darkness all the twenty-two years of the reigning days of King Ahab, the husband of Jezebel, the head priestess of Baal worship in Israel. Jezebel should not have been married to Ahab in the first place because God had told Israelites not to marry strangers because they would infect them with idol worship.

                There lived a man. He was the strongest in human history. God made him so. He was the Judge of Israel, given the responsibility of the highest Jewish political office of his time. But Samson chose an uncouth brashness and a penchant for illicit amatorial propensity. Foolishness resides, as a matter of fact, in man. It is the responsibility of man, no doubt, to jettison the evil appeal of concupiscent crave.

Moses the prophet

                Pharaoh dared the Most High thinking he could misuse his moral agency with impunity. He perished. Why did Moses, the first Judge, leader, priest and prophet of Israel not go to the Promised Land? This is what the Bible says. Because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel. 52) Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel [Deuteronomy 32:51-52]. What was Moses’ free moral offence? It is found in Numbers 20:10-12 And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock? 11) And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also. 12) And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.

Judas Iscariot made satanic use of his free moral agency (30 pieces of silver)

                Was Judas Iscariot stopped from his corrupt practices? John 13:21 “When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.” In another place, it says, “The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born. [Mark 14:21]. Judas had more than enough warning. John 13:26-27 “Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. 27) And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.” This is how guilty we are before the LORD God, Who has given us everything we need to succeed as free moral agents. How guilty was Judas? John 13:2 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him; Judas misused an opportunity to please his Creator.

                Most times God will not come personally to stop you from the mismanagement of your free moral agency. He created you. He put His fear in you, expecting you to comply with what is right. In every individual’s heart is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. The Creator is waiting for you at the end – to face His judgment.

                Each one of Vladimir Putin, Ibrahim Babangida, Adolf Hitler, Muhammadu Buhari, Idi Amin, Emperor Nero (political leaders), Delilah and Jezebel used his or her endowed free moral agency as he or she deemed fit, albeit, wrongly. After all said and done it will be God’s judgment seat that everyone has to face. Be wise. Be a good moral agent.

                To get born again, say, believing every word of it, this prayer:

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

UNFORGIVING JEHOVAH? (VI)

”Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?”

(…continued from part five…)

VI)         Judas was bent on this heinous mission of betrayal. I, honestly, do not see the reason why he should not have allowed table manners (since they were eating) to instruct him that wanting more money (having stolen from the ministry’s bag) is tantamount to gluttony, punishable by stoning, according to Divine Law of Moses. The incorrigibility stance of him had wedged stones in his dark heart to enable him to allow the reverberation of “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” in his Israelite mind.

Guilty of filthy lucre!

                The offending word ‘betray’ is paradidōmi (par-ad-id’-o-mee) which has a definition of: ‘to give a city or person into another’s hands, (according to Herodotus) esp. as an hostage, to deliver up, surrender, (Latin) dedere, (Herodotus), (Thucydides), etc.; also, with notion of treachery, to betray.’ Judas did not know that he was embarking on a treacherous escapade against the LORD, his God. The truth is that after Judas realized his wrong doing, the Bible says of him in Matthew 27:3 to have “repented himself” the Greek of which is metamellomai (met-am-el’-lom-ahee) meaning: ‘self-pity or regret;’ which is quite different from metanoeō (met-an-o-eh’-o) ‘to think differently or afterwards that is reconsider (morally to feel  compunction)’ of Matthew 3:2. Metanoeō or metanoia (met-an’-oy-ah) –of 2Peter 3:9– is the ‘repentance’ that leads to salvation.

But without faith it is impossible to please him (God): (Hebrews 11:6)

                Faithlessness and disobedience are opprobrious oppugnance to the persona of His awed Deity. These flaws of human proclivity prevent God from His providential role. To those who have been affected by the psyche of Satanism, it is an occasion to thank these human flaws which, according to their thinking, aid the calibration of God’s strength, ergo, His weakness as well. God? Weak!? It can only be a brew from the elements of turpitude! ‘Almighty’ in Greek is pantokratōr (pan-tok-rat’-ore) –which comes from pas (pas) ‘all, any, every, the whole’ & kratos (krat’-os): ‘force, strength;’– and it means: ‘he who holds sway over all things; the ruler of all.’ The opprobry of our faithlessness does not rob God of His dignity. It only informs Him of the choice of our moral agency. The LORD God is a Gentleman!

                The title ‘Almighty’ shows up 57 times in the Bible. 48 times in the Old Testament and 9 times in the New Testament (all begin with a capital letter) and each one is in connection with none other than JEHOVAH God. That any person will, from whatever perception, dump or smear the Living Jehovah God with the persona of asthenia is not only blasphemous and aberrational, it is a didacticism from the philosophical dyslogy of Satanism. As the Almighty, He does not just know all omnisciently, His nonpareil ubiquity is so phenomenal and His omnipotence is magnificently awe inspiring! How can any fool allow his audacity to trace even an infinitesimal debilitation to this God?

                The logical reasoning of fallen man will lead his dementia to a discovery of circumstantially known etiolated breach of God’s nonpareil power. They have no idea who the LORD God truly is. “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: 23) That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity” [Isaiah 40:22-23]. If doubt is an element of faith, as propounded by Tillich, it follows that God could probably had betrayed an element of doubt when creating the world by His faith! Beware of these misleading philosophers!  

                Verses 25 & 26 “To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. 26) Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.” The erudition of the Old Testament prophet continues his writing in Isaiah 40:28-31 “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. 29) He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 30) Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31) But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

                God, from the above verses, is this great, powerful and omniscient yet He found it expedient to come to our world to save erring mankind! Pauline insight into Divine protocol scripts in Romans 5:8 pointing out that, But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. How unforgiving can God be? Selah!

Judas, you brought this on yourself!   

            Wash yourself clean from the original sin that takes one to hell for eternity. 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!”

THE SOON COMING KING! LORD OF LORDS; KING OF KINGS! THE MESSIAH!!

(…continued from part one…)            John 13:9 “Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. John 13:10, Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all” (the underlined are Italicised). After one has got the cleansing righteousness of Jesus, ones ineludibility of the idiosyncrasies of his lifestyle makes it germane to have the feet washed. This is the cogency of the main reason why Jesus washed their feet; if you should ask, “why the feet in particular?” Why were His feet nailed? To remove the negativity imbedded in the idiosyncrasies of the walk before our thrice holy Jehovah. Jesus is good! Amen!

“For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you” [John 13:15]. He had charted the Kingdom course of humility and not the literal scrubbing of each other’s feet (which some pastors are erroneously guilty of). God is humble. Godly virtues must be exercised. The LORD God wants you to prove that He has endowed you with this virtue of humility.

God humbled Himself to bring the Incarnation into a historical reality. He humbled Himself to be the first show us love. It is quite inconceivable that the very Creator will choose to salvage the fallen mankind, knowing fully well that the only antidote for our sinfulness is the gory death of the Calvary cross. His unconditional love humbled Him to serve us. Moses saw the backside of the Divinity and became the brightness of a walking sunlight.

The Red Sea parted hither and thither, standing at attention, to make a dry passageway for the trekking feet of Israel. Angels worship Him in the heavenly assizes; and when John saw Him in the island of Patmos he fell as though dead. This same Master was the One who left the glory of heaven in an unprecedented humbling of Himself, in the service to humanity. It is stupefying to arrive at this understanding: that the Divinity will even allow the thought of lowliness to cross His eternal mind. Mind-blowing!

THE MASTER AND LORD!

There is only one reason why a creature will deign to forsake the virtuous walk of unpretentiousness. It is pride. Lunatic pride of Satanism. Lucifer detests embracing the spirit of self-abasement. He would rather keep himself on a delusionary, prancing high horse, ambience of his phantasmal romance. Pride, as a matter of fact, goeth ere destruction. Pride has a way of making you think that you know a whole lot when the stark reality is that you are actually wallowing in abject ignorance.

The prideful ones are made to discountenance tiny inconsequential lowliness, too enraptured in the pride of their physical status. Lucifer saw only what he wanted in an absolute neglect of the Creator’s word. Pride is an avid preacher. It will sermonize its captive in subjects that are diametrically opposed to God’s protocol. Whose tireless advice got Satan derailed? It was none but his own self who got himself alienated from God’s goodness. When you take decisions that run contrary to the instructions of the Word of God you have just embarked on a journey in futility. Today, Lucifer is licking his wounds. “If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them;” Jesus taught His followers in John 13:17.
