WHY WILL GOD ALLOW CERTAIN THINGS? (part five)

That true greatness is not found in individual’s greatness, but in the individual’s ability to make others great is incontestable. The majestic splendour of God will manifest when the view of the new world is dotted with gods. The Holy Spirit anointed inhabitants of the new earth will metamorphose into gods, each of us, probably, will represent a particular splendid radiance of Jehovah. Existing around the earth will be gods of divine radiance like the stars of the dark sky. Each of the billions showing off different glorious radiance of Divinity. A spectacle to behold!

God’s true splendor cannot be captured by these billions of gods. So, what is going to happen is that each blessed one will have to change from one colour to another effulgence of divine brilliance, and each hue will not look really like others, simply because this is what God truly is. Unfathomable! As we depict HIS glory, so we will be falling down in worship of the Most High in Spirit and in truthfulness of it. This is a unique phenomenon! This mundane show of His glory will continue for eternity. His ability to deify His created beings is the true greatness of Him, who was, who is, and is to come, the LORD, the LORD God Almighty! Every available space on earth will reflect the true glory of HIS Person. This is what Lucifer, the erstwhile head of the angels, bestially craved for.

The Devil’s detestation of Christians is based on the fact that we will inherit the LORD God Himself. We are the heirs of the eternal God. Our heirship is from eternity to eternity. Like the LORD God, we are eternally good; and the diminishing returns of gerontological deficiency can never creep into our glorious life. Christ’s life is ours. The long we live the more glory of Him who sits eternally on the throne we exude.

When we meet to commune, it is the communion of Divinity. When we greet one another it is a holy greetings of Divinity. Our only focal entity will be the Father and the Lamb. Egoism would have long been thrown into hell, where it rightly belongs.

Satan egoistically communed with himself in his quest for divinity. He shunned the council of the Holy Spirit. The irrelevance of the Holy Spirit for him, rendered him irrelevant. He lost eternal blissful existence before the Creator. This great angel had lost it forever. He, therefore, in his maniacal self, is doing all he can to push man away from this unprecedented glory that God has planned for mankind. He is doing all he can to disparage John 3:3. He is fighting tooth and nail to keep man from actualizing Romans 10:9-10. He knows what a regenerated one stands to inherit. He knows what a massive second chance humanity is endowed with. He, consequently, set up religions, myriads of them, to marginalize the efficacious truth of spiritual regeneration inherent in Christianity.

Lucifer has injected the foetus of every matrix with a certain venom that enhances your disparaging stance of Jesus. That deceptive potion gives one a spiritual taste bud that craves for the religious meals provided by those beliefs. Before you know it you are already believing in the Eastern didactic karmic reality. You are sold to Masonic cultic way of life. The jihadic offer of 72 virgins of Islamic religious stance begin to appeal to your palate. The ontological paradigm of your ancestral belief, the custodians of which are the demonic familiar spirits, continue to fascinate your psyche. The relevance of divine counsel of the Holy Spirit: its repudiation, is the reason for this satanic design

The Spirit has sent so many messages into your heart. Be wise. Apprehend the relevance of His messages. Get born again. Belong to Jesus, and you are settled eternally. Let us see the biblical relativities.

*True greatness= John 14:12, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”

*New earth= 2Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Revelation 21:1-5, 23. Verse one says, And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” The word ‘new’ is the Greek kainos (kai-nos’): ‘new (especially in freshness); it speaks of renovation.’ Our earth will be renovated and made more spacious.

moses and the glory ofthe lord

Moses squinched when he saw the back side of Jehovah

* God’s true splendour = Isaiah 48:12-13.

*Satan communed with himself = Isaiah 14:14, I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

*Lucifer has injected the foetus = Revelation 12:4, 9, & 12 and verse 9 is, And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

*The Spirit has sent messages= Matthew 12:31-32; verse 31 says, Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. Confer Hebrews 10:26.   (Conclusion)

CAN I ADVISE GOD AS ABRAHAM AND MOSES DID? (Part 2)

changing-Gods-mind-flattened

He only did a playback of God’s intention

          The Hebrew for ‘directed’ in Isaiah 40:13 is: tâkan (taw-kan’): ‘to regulate, measure, estimate, to balance, that is, measure out (by weight or dimension); figuratively to arrange, equalize, through the idea of levelling (mentally estimate, test ).’ For any being to achieve this feat he must be on a par with the Entity of Isaiah 40:12, “Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?” This, like my Pastor, Rev. Chris Okotie will say, “It is impossicant” (a humorous derivative of two negating ‘impossible’ and ‘can’t’). Do you have an idea of the amount of water in the universe? One of the palms of God takes all of it! By stretching the middle finger away from His thumb (that) is too long to calculate the entire space of the universe. He knows the mind of every individual from eternity past to eternity to come!

‘Counsellor’ is ı̂ysh (eesh): ‘man, male, husband’. Who can stand side by side Him, to whom the dusts of creation is like a few spoonfuls, and who has placed the mountains and the hills where they are found? Who is wise enough to instruct Him? ‘Taught’ is yâda (yaw-dah’) ‘to know (properly to ascertain by seeing); used in a great variety of senses, figuratively, literally, euphemistically and inferentially (including observation, care, recognition; and causatively instruction, designation, punishment, etc.).’ Who can measure up this Jehovah who measures the entire universe so effortlessly?

Some will still want to hold tenaciously onto Isaiah 45:11 of “command ye me,” but before giving the order of your command consider Isaiah 45:9, “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?” It looks very much a rhetoric question, needing not an answer as to whether your Maker should or can be commanded.

Isaiah 40

Psalm 115:16 “The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.” At the end of the six days of creationism God made Adam the sole governor of the vastness of the world. Sin caused Adam to forfeit his ownership of the earth. At the great Deluge it was Noah who stood in for mankind. To establish the dispensation of the promise, God chose Abraham. He chose Isaac, Jacob and the nation of Israel from which emanated the ultimate choice: Jesus! It was easy for Abraham to see that he had been chosen to save some out of the annihilation of Sodom and Gomorrah. Prayer simply means ‘talking to God’. Moses spoke the mind of the righteous God, reminding Him even as he stood in the capacity of man – to whom the earth has been donated through divine operation.

If you think you can actually counsel God then you have not understood scripture according to Job 36:23, which says “Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquity? Let us study the key words involved. ‘Enjoined’ is paqad (paw-kad’), meaning: ‘1. to visit (with friendly or hostile intent) 2. (by analogy) to oversee, muster, charge, care for, miss, deposit.’ The word ‘way,’ derek (deh’-rek), is ‘1. a road (as trodden) 2. (figuratively) a course of life or mode of action, often adverb.’ While ‘wrought’ pa`al (paw-al’) is: ‘to do or make (systematically and habitually), especially to practise;’ ‘iniquity’ in the Hebrew is`evel (eh’-vel) (or lavel {aw’-vel} and (feminine) lavlah {av-law’}; or owlah {o-law’}; or .olah {o-law’};) and it means: ‘(moral) evil.’

Moses talks to God

                                    Who can counsel Jehovah God ? Moses?

God made His word readily available to His saints who merely did a playback into the Divine ears of the Most High. God checked it out and it was according to His purposeful stand, so, Jehovah released His intended beneficence. Man has to ask for that which must pass the legal requirement of the celestial assizes. It is for this reason that we must be adequately connected.

1Corinthians 2:1, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” Now the word ‘instruct’ is sumbibazō (soom-bib-ad’-zo): ‘to cause a person to unite with one in a conclusion or come to the same opinion, to prove, demonstrate; to teach, instruct, one.’ Ginōskō (ghin-oce’-ko) is the Greek for ‘known’ meaning: ‘to know absolutely.’ Without Christ, who shows us the Father, through the energy of the Holy Spirit, we cannot have the necessary faith by which the thrice holy Father is approached.   (Concluded)

               Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?

To the mind that is yet to graduate from theological puerility, some Bible characters have swung open the doors of the possibility to counsel God. “After all ‘concerning the work of my hands command ye me’ is what Isaiah reads,” becomes their scriptural submission.

A counsellor’s beam on the darkened side of an individual’s life, with an intention to make one see clearly and to succeed, is purely advisory. The submission of Moses in his bid to assuage God’s ire was nothing short of counselling. Let us read Exodus 32:9-14, 9) “And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people: 10) Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation. 11) And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand? 12) Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people. 13) Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever. 14) And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.” God was visibly irked, being the One to call them ‘stiffnecked people.’ But the question truly is, can God be counselled?

abraham_prayer 

“Peradventure ten shall be found there?

In the book of Genesis 18:22-32, Abraham is seen in a conversational rapport with Jehovah. Verses 18:22-26 read, 22) “And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD. 23) And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? 24) Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? 25) That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? 26) And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.” Abraham continued to haggle from fifty to a minimal few in order to save Sodom and Gomorrah. Verse 32 reads, “And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.” In both scenarios God heeded to the counsel of each character. Whether the Lord God can be counselled or not can only be answered by His protocol, the Bible. Let us consult the Scriptures.

                              “Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD?

Isaiah 40:13-14 read, 13) “Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him? 14) With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?” An earlier Old Testament saint, Job went rhetorical in Job 21:22, “Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those that are high.” Paul evidently quoted Isaiah in his scripting of Romans 11:34, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?” The next verse asks, “Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?”

OF TRIALS AND TROUBLES (3rd part)

Moses, Miriam and Aaron

Negative pride is an unclean spirit. Aaron (means: lofty; mountain of strength) and his prophetess sister, Miriam (means: rebellion; bitterness) were garbed in the spirit of pride in their trials against their young sibling, Moses. They tasted shame from God who had made Moses their leader. Achan, (meaning: he that troubleth) why did you have to purloin that which your hands must be kept away from? Knowest thou not that thou troubleth thy own soul when thou stealeth? When you are walking with God be extra careful. The children of Israel walked side by side the LORD their God from Egypt through the wilderness and misbehaved several times by their thoughts, utterances and acts. About one million of about 2.4 million that left Egypt died in the wilderness, not seeing the Promised Land. As a Christian you are walking with God, be careful, therefore, for Satan, your adversary, is very jealous of your positional state.

It started with the spirit of presumptuousness in the trial of King Saul in his answer to the bleating of the domestic animals; and the failure opened the atrocious door of hatred against an anointed David. Saul failed in the trials woefully. When it came to the lust of the eyes and of the flesh and the heart David did not take his eyes off beautiful Bathsheba. The muscle between his legs i.e. his flesh forced its way into the woman, another man’s wife. David’s brutish heart was tried, it failed, asking for the murder of Uriah, the husband of Bathsheba, whose military patriotism to Israel should put King David to shame, to whom he owed an unreserved apology plus a very huge compensation. But David had in reserve something in his heart. He knew how to approach God in sincerity of the humbleness of heart. The contriteness of his apologetic heart was always from the genuineness of heart and never theatrical. This is why God Himself made the eureka testimony of Psalm 89:20, “I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him”. Be like David and be a winner.

Satan knows our weak points and he works assiduously to achieve his nefarious goals even against our determined will. Solomon, the wisest of all men, failed. “For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. v5) For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. v6) And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father. v7) Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon. v8) And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods. v9) And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice”, [1Kings 11:4-9]. Solomon did the unthinkable. Let everyone manage his trials lest he gets into trouble.

Elijah was tired got the troubles he faced; would you?

“…I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away”, Elijah whined in 1Kings 19:14. God’s answer in 1Kings 19:18, “Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him”, puts it clear that the prophet had not managed his troubles well enough. Daniel was not a Babylonian. He came to Babylon as a voiceless slave. His high office of a Prime Minister was a rarest privilege, prestigious and which placed him in high regard. When the trials of his faith came to badger him at every front, the Bible says, “Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime [Daniel 6:10]. Like his three contemporaries, who defied the threatening furnace of Nebuchadnezer, Daniel would rather offend a superbly world powered monarch but spiritually irascible than to break God’s law.

For every action we take, no matter how exalting of the Lord it is and of very pleasing to Him, as far as it is offensive to an authorized political power, there are consequences. We should be ready for the upshot of our decision, no matter how righteous the resolve is. I do not know which one is fiercer: the terrible furnace or the hungry, extremely brutish pride.
