OBEDIENCE AND SUBMISSION [nine]

Jehovah God and His Word are one and the same. Finding Himself in the likeness of an Adamic creature, Jesus Christ won the heart of humanity as the quintessence of submissiveness in obedience. At age twelve, even though Mary and Joseph made the mistake of not making sure that Jesus was going home with them before embarking on the journey of days, and for the fact that it was made crystal clear that the One they were dealing with is the only begotten Son of God, Jesus, the Bible says, “And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart” (Luke 2:51). Jesus taught the Church submission, Who first brought Himself under subjection.Read More

David. Even though King Saul was very erratic and deserved to die at the hand of David whom he pursued with the wicked intent of killing without no just cause, David given the opportunity, would do no such thing – this is the difference between the one who fears God and the one who does not. David’s loyalty to the crown and the military head of Israel would not allow him to kill even an enemy who desperately sought after his life. But the more important reason for not wanting to end the life of Saul was the divine ministerial office King Saul held. None can become God’s child unless he gets born again. Soteriological establishment requires obedience to John 3:3 and submission to Romans 10:9-10 culminating in the process of the prayer involved. John 3:3 emphatically asseverates, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Read More

Cain, the first born of humanity, decided to act the way he deemed fit. He forsook the instruction of God as passed to him by his father, the progenitor of the entire mankind, Adam. Divine forgiveness is perfected only by blood, so, God told Adam after He Himself had killed two sacrificial animals to save them from death to do the same, periodically. Abel heeded this instruction of blood sacrifice. He came before the LORD God with a sheep, the blood of which God used to cleanse Abel of his sins, just the same way Jesus would come to do a once-and-for-all substitutionary death for all mankind. Abel keyed into the futuristic finished work of the cross of Calvary. He, by his obedience, accepted Jesus as his Lord and Saviour. Faith in the word of God and the attendance obedience goes a long way to please God eternally, sometimes without one knowing it.Read More

Now, the significance of teleioō is the accomplishment of a set goal. The consummation of this bourne is the death, burial and most importantly, the ultimate resurrection. This divine substitutionary death of the cross attracted divine legitimacy of Christ’s Authorship of the soteriological cause. Jesus Christ, therefore, is the sole cause of eternal salvation. Disobedience to the finished work of the cross leads, ultimately, to the eternality of hellish death. If the Bible says, “For all have sinned”, it does include every living intelligent being on the terra firma. If Jesus obeyed the set rules of salvation, those who wish to partake of this spiritual salvageability must show obedience as well. Hebrews 11:8, “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.” Imagine if father Abraham had not obeyed God’s instruction, who would have spoken a word about him? Obedience stood Abraham out. Abraham has the enviable title of ‘Father of faith’ all because he chose to believe and obey the word of God. We should likewise obey God’s word, whether it makes religious, psychological or philosophical sense or not. Read More

It must of necessity follow that when an offspring rejects the fifth commandment, he is definitely calling for a short-lived life. The father, as the head, is known to be the priest of the family. The father, ergo, owns both the gregarious and the spiritual headship of the family. The mother, being one with the father, is to be accorded the same honour. The parents, having been around before the children, ought to know best, the mind of God. The truth is that every marriage is supposed to constitute two born again people. Marriage is strictly between God’s children. Adam and the first woman were God’s son and daughter.Read More

Proverbs 15:32 “He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.” Man may be a free moral agent, but the hard truth that calls for digestion is the fact that God still gave the first couple some dos and do nots; to prove that God must be put into serious consideration. They were free to eat from all the surrounding trees save the one called the tree of knowledge of good and evil. They would not live to complete a thousandth year or another one thousand years of existence if they should come into disobedience. Death was God’s promise for disobedience. The lives of those who would dare refuse to get born again, which the Holy Spirit is doing everything possible, through Christianity in the propagation of eternal life in Jesus, will find themselves disappearing before the presence of the thrice holy God; hell is the eternal abode. It may sound like a Hollywood script, but it is not. It is the gospel truth. Read More

What did Abraham do to be so blessed? His acquiescent disposition to God’s direction and the unprecedented sacrificial task earned him the father of faith and through his seed the whole world is soteriologically blessed. By giving up Isaac, his only son, having sent away Hagar and Ishmael, Isaac’s half-brother, Abraham had set up the possibility of the ultimate sacrifice of the Golgotha cross – without which Jesus would not have received the legitimate pattern to die for the world. Without the crucifixion of the Lamb of God there could not be the salvation of one soul. Abraham’s obedience to God’s word made it possible for God to provide His own eternal Son for the perfect sacrifice. Amen.Read More

Ephesians 5:21, “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” This Pauline verse teaches humility among children of God. This submission finds itself in the locational sphere of reverence to the word of God. It is not borne out of guileful pleasing art. Colossians 3:18 “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.” Two things, I have always maintained, are the solutions to a successful marriage. The husband must love his wife; and the wife is scripturally expected to submit to her husband. ‘Submit’ in Greek is hupotasso (hï-po-tas'-sō): ‘1. to subordinate. 2. (reflexively) to obey.’ This Greek word comes from two roots of hupo (hï-po') prep. ‘1. under. 2. (of place, genitive) beneath;’ and tasso (tas'-sō): ‘to arrange in an orderly manner.’ When you put hupotasso together what it says to the wife is: ‘package yourself very well and place it under your husband.’ The husband is the head of the family. The Greek for ‘head’ is kephale (ke-fa-lee'), meaning ‘the head (as the part most readily taken hold of); origin and source.’Read More

Satan the Devil knew what he was aiming at when he goaded the woman to be the first to oppugn God’s word. Lucifer knew that by sowing views of divergency his anarchical intent would fructify. The minute a divergent view becomes a belief, the heart of its containerization puffs, having received the yeast of pollutive spread. Hagar suddenly found herself wearing the same sandals as her mistress the very moment she was given the legitimacy of sleeping with the lord and husband of her mistress. Sooner than later she hit the social jackpot. She was with a child, the child of none other personage than the great Abraham! Hagar saw herself as the mother of Abraham’s heir! She forgot where she was picked from. Hagar forgot the legality of Sarah’s ownership of her person. All that Satanism made her understood was her Gibraltar-like foothold she stood to have in Abraham’s household for giving him the heir Sarah could not produce all those decades of conjugation.

Many pastors, evangelists, born again Christians will lose crowns. Many husbands will have to contend with being under the leadership of their earthly wives or children. Crowns of good works determine the hierarchy of empyreal citizenry. Some pastors, who cannot do without engaging in certain vices like sexual immorality, will serve under their church members. It will not be painful an experience to find one in, but, what is sown is what is reaped. You will not wallow in shame, but, your official celestial status, which is dependent on the good things you do now as a Christian either places you lower or much lower than some people if you allow yourself to be dominated by sensual propensity. None will be plunged into slavery of any kind, but you will be low in the new world to come for all eternity. Imagine what the Creator’s elevation of a born again Christian will amount to in heaven before we come to spend the rest of eternity on earth? No one elects anyone into such celestial offices; none will ever be made to lose that office. It is eternally a bestowal of the Divinity. It will be mind-blowing. Let you be warned of the glory of eternal greatness, found nowhere else but in heaven. Read More

Why would someone say, “Jihadic execution of non-practising Muslims is Allah’s commission to righteous followers of Muhammadanism?” Globally, Jihad kills and continues to assassinate people who will not chant, “Allahu Akbar! And Muhammad is His prophet!” In the hand of Islamic jihadism is a lethal weapon. If he is a free moral agent, then that bestows the power of killing, in the name of Allah, to him.Read More

Many saved souls will be astonished at the score cards of their free moral agency of earthly existence. The actuality of free moral agency tends to push one into a lethargic state of spiritual functionality. Believing that he can get away with some sins – after all Adam and Eve did make it to heaven eventually – man wants to taste of some forbidden fruits. One prayer of forgiveness, that is all he needs, and those spiritual misdemeanours are struck out of his dark accounts. Throwing caution to the winds, children of God begin to cut unscriptural corners of Satanism to book a majestic seat of financial autonomy – counting billions in monetary value aided by the altar of ungodly ritualism –, birthed in the oven of a sworn Mammonite. Promoted by the god of this sinful world, Lucifer, the ill-gotten wealth, however, forms a frown on the holy visage of the Most High; and most despicably, they make themselves to feel satisfied paying tithes on an ill-gotten wealth.Read More

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. Read More

Why free moral agency? It is never God’s intention to create robots as people who would represent Him – whether in heaven or on the terra firma. A robot has no intention of his; it has no soul; it is devoid of spiritual intelligence, and it is too mechanical to appreciate the awesome wonderment that strikes an intelligent being of creationism, and leading to the sense of venerable appeal that eventually engenders the knee-bent latria in the presence of the Creator. A robot will kneel in worship simply because it has been so programmed, and never out of genuine reverential appeal. The LORD God has a sense of feeling; His intelligent creation must have an endowment of sensation as well. The Creator perceives intelligently; if the intelligent beings of creation must have the “likeness and the image” of their Creator, then their perceptive abilities must not possess the mechanical programming of computerized objects.Read More

Scriptural veridicality as revealed in God’s enjoinment of Genesis 2, verse 17 underscores God’s preeminent sovereignty over His creation. When you merge Jehovah’s authorship of creationism with His adjudicatory ultimacy, what you must be in awareness of is His Almighty Godhood over all phenomenality. Does His Almightiness not come in the way of His dealings with man so that He must of necessity force people to do His divine will all the time, making a whole lot of nonsense of this free moral agency?Read More

JOHN CHAPTER 3 VERSE 16 [four]

The strength of the Christian belief which is of Scriptural facticity is that “the saving of the soul” is based on the substitutionary death of the Golgotha cross which purchased the redeemed. The cost of this redemption is too expensive to make an availability of a repurchase of the redeemed soul of the Christian – it is absolutely God’s property –; also because God will not change His mind concerning the intent of His divine pronouncement. In this purchase, the good thing about it is its eternality – “that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. The reason why we, the true Christians, cannot ‘draw back’ is the eternality of the purchase. The cost of this redemption is too high to allow the object of this salvation to be lost. Love without measure. What is the cost? God Himself! Acts 20:28 “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” The active word ‘purchase’ is peripoieomai (pe-riy-poi-ye'-o-mai): ‘to make around oneself, i.e. acquire (buy).’ Read More

Where it says, “If God be for us, who can be against us” is, by all odds, a most cheering news. ‘For' is huper (hoop-er'), meaning: ‘in behalf of; for the sake of; over;' while 'against' is kata (kat-ah): ‘down in (in place or time), in varied relations (according to the case [genitive, dative or accusative] with which it is joined).’ The 31st verse paints a picture of God taking the stance of protagonism over us; not pleading for the maintenance of our glorification, but hoisting the eternal flag of redemption for our sake. Can anyone or anything come down in opposition to God’s absolute desire: of which He had sworn to prevent from decay? Selah!Read More

Amazing Grace did not only foreknow the born again Christian, the grace of God predestined me for salvation knowing fully well that I would accept Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. Having said Romans 10:9-10 in the prayer that concludes the soteriological ritual, God did what none can ever bring to perfection. He 'conformed’ me – a born again – to the image of Himself': for is it not understood that “he that seeth Him – Jesus – hath seen the Father” (John 14:9)? Now, that brings one closer to understanding why it says, “Ye are gods”. God looks at me, a Christian, and who does He see? He sees the Christ in me. What does He call me? He will adorably intone, “My dear son in whom I’m well pleased!” Amen.Read More

When the contentious question of “Can a Christian lose his salvation?” is raised, I do not waste time in pointing to John 3:16 as one of the Scriptural solutions to this contention which several Christians will treat with heated acidity of negation. The famous verse begins with “For God so loved” and nobody seems to ask, “At what point in time did God shower the world with this love?” Trace the chronological reality of this beneficence and you may have to travel way back into the realm of eternality. A plan of an architectural edifice, as we all are aware, has always been with the commencement of an uninhabitability of the project. In like manner, God, the Architect of the universal creation, sat down long before He brought anything into creationism in the eternity past, and had decided that, this creature of humanity, who will sin against Me, must be given a second chance to acquire my zoë type of life-eternal. When God dwells on a course of action, He has always thought it through – nothing to amend; so it can be said of Him, “I am the LORD I change not.”Read More

When relationships go awry the targeted realm of botheration is the mind. To the Christ-less individuals, they feel like being swallowed up by a gaping ground; life, to them, has come to a termination. But, never is it so – to the Christ initiated people. They show, in prayer, the unbearable cardiac situation to God in the precious name of Jesus and what happens? The LORD God who had long before then watched over His children showers them with the Excellency of heart soothing peace. His words of protection flood their minds. The angels of the LORD sentinel the activities of His children, ensuring that the destructive arrows of jilt do not overwhelm our mental stability. The heart of a born again Christian belongs to Jesus; and He is the custodian of the hearts of the redeemed souls. When a man or a woman says, “I don’t love you anymore; this is the end of the road;” the eternal love of Jesus stands: a pillar of strength, loving you more than you can ever imagine. Amen! Read More
