Do verses 22 and 23 say categorically that Jesus is the Head of the Church and does it reveal that the Church is His mystical body? Did I not explain clearly that the saved soul is the full responsibility of the Godhead? If the Church is His mystical body, does it not behove God to do the Jude verse one needful? “…to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:” (Jude 1:1). The Father “purifies” for salvation. Jesus Christ is the divine refrigerator that continues in “preserving the regenerate Christian from injury, rottenness and loss,” because that is what the Greek word for 'preserved', tēreō (tay-reh’-o) means. Through the inspired energy of the Holy Spirit, the gospel becomes meaningful; the “call” is made and what does the Father-sanctified and Christ-preserved do? Led by the Holy Spirit the utterance of the prayer of salvation is made from the heart, you get born again and the Trinity takes over the purchased life, and your new life becomes the full responsibility of God; how can it be lost? Has God ever lost anything He truly wants for Himself? Selah! Read More

The first stance of soteriological existence is the act of faith. It does say somewhere, “faith cometh by hearing;” and when the heard substance is led to the state of digestion, the risen hope transforms into a deeply rooted faith in the rhema of the Logos. The LORD God, seeing this display of sheer intent of the abiding faith, the Godhead takes it up from there: for He alone can bring the objectivity of faith into its destined consummation. It is God’s business transaction, which requires not a less in Divinity of participation. Another Entity of eternality, the Holy Spirit, must, as of divine requirement, serve as the earnest. God the Father did not perfect the payment of regeneration of the Christian with the denarii of the Roman tentacles of nations’ occupation. He did not pay with the British pound sterling to save Europeans; the globally sought after US dollars was not the currency of transaction; neither is the Nigerian naira offered for the redemption of Africans. The tectonic relevancy and divine bourne is the onliest reason why God must use Himself as the down payment for the Church: God’s biggest dream. Read More

The saved is in the eternality of, not One, but in the Divine hands of Two Members of the Godhead; in fact the saved soul is held in the eternal hands of the Trinity – the Holy Spirit is actively involved in the soteriology. Theologically, we understand that what is in the hand of the Christ is said to be in the Father’s hand as well. But the seriousness of the Divine Insurance Corporation (headquartered in heaven) enforces me to dwell on the individuality and the distinctiveness of each of the Members of the Godhead. The hand of Christ, from which none can pluck, is a mystical arm of eternality. It is impossible to even come to an approaching distance, not to talk of touching it. If you cannot touch it what possibility, on earth, gives anyone the strength of moving just one finger of eternal existence? Need we dwell on the impossibility of plucking the saved soul out of the hand of the Christ? Now the same saved souls are secured in the Father’s eternal hand. One eternality is much, too much enough to effect security for all eternities; but two hands of the Divinity? Phew! It is the end of the discussion! How it seems too difficult to understand this simple scriptural facticity is disturbing to my theological mind, honestly! Does it not make it explicitly in abundance of clarity in Romans 11:29 that “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance”; where ‘without repentance’ is the Greek ametamelētos (am-et-am-el’-ay-tos) meaning: ‘unregretted or better still, irrevocable’? The predestined quiddity of the born again, which before creation was an issue of Godhead predetermination concerning the Christian, makes his spiritual rebirth unreversible. Read More

He says pointedly, ‘a man-faced being of Adamic nature’ cannot be justified save by the faith, faith in the word of God. Any person who comes to Jesus, knowing that he was born in sin and wants to be justified, must get born again, a birth engendered solely by the beneficence of Divinity, maintained and perfected by the same God and which has absolutely nothing to do with man’s moral rectitude is what this new birth of soteriology is all about. “Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied” (Jude 1:1-2). God Almighty, the Eternal Father, already knew in the eternal past who will seek to be redeemed. So, what did He do? The Greek word for ‘sanctified’ is hagiazo (ha-ǰiy-a'-zō): ‘1. to make holy, to set apart unto God and apart (alienate) from the world. 2. (ceremonially) to cleanse. 3. (mentally) to reverence.’ What God did was to use His omnipotence to ‘set those who will receive Jesus as Lord and Saviour apart’ unto Himself. Everything that marks the process of salvation is God’s work, therefore, the born again person will continually have the Divine attention of ‘mercy’ (to be forgiven always), ‘peace’ (prosperity in all its ramifications) and ‘love’ (God’s unconditional, protective affection) multiplied unto his soul, simply because this regenerate soul must not be lost. Amen! Read More

Have we forgotten that Jesus, the Good Samaritan, took the injured victim to an ‘inn’ that is pandocheion (pan-dokk-i'-on): ‘a public house for the reception of strangers; all receptive.’ Remember also that the victim did not supply anything towards his recuperation. The Good Samaritan provided everything, including the payment for the place of rest. How much did He pay? Two pence; and in those days a penny is regarded as a day’s wage. Theologically, a day in God’s heaven is like a thousand years on our terra firma. According to Rev. Chris Okotie, the two pence is the payment of our rest in the Church, divinely presided by the Holy Spirit, for two thousand years. As long as the Church age functions on earth, the Christian is protected against any evil eventuality. Jesus has not performed His Second Coming, therefore, we must remain divinely protected from falling into any loss of salvation. It is just not possible that what Jesus paid for will suffer spiritual deterioration. The terms and conditions of this salvific transaction are absolutely in the hands of the Members of the Godhead. The Holy Spirit will never accuse the Lord Jesus, the Second Member of the Godhead, of defaulting in payment, and consequently throw out an erring inmate of ‘the Inn’ – the Church of the Living God. The belief in the loss of the salvation brought by Jesus is quite unscriptural.Read More

Jesus Christ is indubitably the Rock of Ages – the eternal stability of the souls of regenerate born again children of the Most High, making sure no soul is lost, once saved: for who can pluck Christians out of God’s hand when it is clearly understood that, “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. How could our superintendent pastors not see that the word ‘pluck’ is the Greek harpazō (har-pad'-zo): ‘to seize, carry off by force; to seize on, claim for one's self eagerly; to snatch out or away; to steal (absolutely). How can teachers of the Word not grok that even the practicality of the viciousness of Satanism cannot, and will never remove the saved souls from the hand of the Creator? When John revealed the drama that took place in the heavenly assizes, where the One Who sat on the empyrean throne of the Majesty held the scroll, could any being of creationism approach the throne to take or even accept the scroll? None, save the One Who possessed the kind of hand that held the scroll could stretch the similitude of hand and to take! Only the eternality of the hand of Christ could legally and appropriately be stretched towards the eternal hand of the Father. As long as one has got himself initiated into the soteriology of the Godhead both hands and that of the Holy Spirit are holding that one firmly. Read More

So, what Scriptural explanations debunk preachers of “you can lose your salvation”? The very few words of the microcosm of the entire Bible, John 3:16, make indubitable provision for the answer, which reads, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” The Greek for ‘everlasting’ is aiōnios (ahee-o’-nee-os): ‘without beginning and end; that which always has been and always will be; without beginning, without end; never to cease.’ And ‘life’, zōē (dzo-ay'): is specifically ‘God’s kind of unending life.’ The question now is that did God ever know that the saved Adamic entity would commit sin after the spiritual regeneration? If His Omniscience knew this fact, why should He bestow a life unending unto the born again knowing fully well that it stood to be lost immediately the individual commits one sin? There is no way God would give an eternal life that stood to be lost. Prove to me that what God, through grace, gave was never eternality of God’s life and I will agree with Oyedepo that “once saved is not always saved.”Read More

MARY AND HER MATERNITY OF GOD (3)

Theologically speaking, is it possible for God, the Creator, to have a mother? Mothering Jehovah is an absolute possibility of the deification of Mary. Could she be a ‘Goddess’? Why, for crying out loud, would such an aberrational latria be accorded a good and very humble natured Mary of the Bible, who will definitely deny this Mariolatrous crave of Catholicism? The quiddity of maternity presupposes superiority of age above the object of parturition. If this is a truism, then Mary must be older, biologically, than the pristine Adam the female. Why do I think so? Mary must, of biological necessity, be older than the Incarnation of her parturition, simply because the LORD God is older than the Woman of Eden. Is Mary older than the Christ? Ascribing aeipartheonos to Mary, the mother of Jesus, is a proof of the fact that some theologians are bedevilled with the problem of philosophers, who, suffering from idleness of mind, will, on their own volition, decide to theorize things that cannot be found in the mind of the divine Object of theology: the LORD God. When you seem not to have anything to do, the right thing to do is to read the Bible, not as a literary stuff, but with the aid of the Holy Spirit.Read More

MARY AND HER MATERNITY OF GOD (2)

An Entity of anciency whose existence has no beginning cannot be said to be begotten of another, especially by someone whose existence has a historical beginning. The theological hypostatic union of Jesus Christ, as one hundred percent God and one hundred percent man is the clincher. It is the enablement, galvanizing the full legality of Divine participation in the soteriological consummation. Jesus, armed with His free moral agency and in righteous intent to please the Father; and in joint participatory of the Christ, coming from the eternality of eternities, with all the Omnipotence of His Omniscience, boasting of Divine Omnipresence, apprehensive of every evil intent of Satanism and blocking off all its acts, nothing could go wrong with the salvation having made seven times sure that the holy pregnancy could not be terminated. Mary had, absolutely, nothing to do with this intervention of the Godhead. His humanity went through the biological parturition, and of His Deity? It only partook of His humanity. The humanity of Jesus could never have been able to save the world; only God could, can and will ever consummate such soteriological feat. Hebrews 2:16 “For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.” What this verse is teaching is that of a dramatic scene where two people are sinking to the point of drowning; Jesus looked at the first one; it was an angel. He looked at the other one who happened to be a human being; and the Saviour decided that it is the son of Adam that He would save. Read More

The Incarnation came with a foetus coming into existence for the first time in the matrix of Mary. The fleshy humanity of Him is Jesus, ‘born’ unto us. Inside the foetus is the eternal Christ, very God of very God, the ‘gift’ from the Eternal Giver. Christ can only be given; He cannot be born. What is very clear is that, for every parturitive reality there is a maternal existence that is always an older entity. The maternal reality, being older, nurses the infant till the weaning period, and guiding the child into adulthood. These Mary did in bringing up the Jesus, the humanity of Immanuel. What could she or Joseph have done to nurture the eternality of a Member of the Godhead to adulthood? A baby is characterized by physical, mental and spiritual weakness; is God ever weak? What knowledge or wisdom has Mary to impart to the One of Whom it is written, “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:3)? Who taught Mary that she could teach the Christ, “In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3)? Read More

MORNING STAR (1)

This Light is not a created Being; this is the One John calls the True Light. This Light is the One to whom the accreditation of the fullness of Godhead bodily dwells; of who also is the eternal repository of all the treasures of the knowledge and wisdom of God. Without Him was not anything made that was an entity of creationism. There must be the divine presence of the Light before anything could come into existence. This Light created the angelic beings of celestial abode of the Majesty, no wonder it is said in Scripture, “And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him” (Hebrews 1:6). Who is worshipped, if not the Creator? Morning stars, being many, are the works of the creative hands of God, hence, sons of God. Like their Maker, they exude light to prove the handiwork of who brought them to physical actuality.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

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

IS THERE A CURSE ON AFRICA? [4]

The antediluvian patriarchs passed the baton of succession of God’s business one to the other, culminating in Noah’s leading humanity through the flood. Why? God wanted to preserve humanity. Noah passed the baton to Shem. Japheth continued on a larger scale. Ham, the supposedly cursed, must complete the soteriological enterprise. How come so? God had blessed him immediately after the great deluge. Abraham passed the baton to Isaac who also did the same to Jacob. Whether Jacob was a ‘supplanting’ schemer or not: the grace of God took care of his spiritual inadequacies. Whether under curse or not, in this end-time proclamation of the coming of Jesus Christ, it is strictly a divine appointment for Ham of Africa to champion it. Amen. Read More

Cain’s treasonable felony against the headship of his father and the family of Adam gave Lucifer all the opportunities he needed to unleash havoc on humanity. Cain means 'javelin'. As the first born in human history, it behoves Cain to use the instrumentality of his name to protect the nascent Eden family. Rather than attack the devilish incursion, Cain joined forces with Lucifer, culminating in Adamic dichotomy. Cain became the progenitor, head and lord of the antediluvian miscreants. Even though mankind had fallen into sinfulness, the sacrificial grace was the atonement availability for sins. God made sure not to create man for annihilation; and what He did to bring man back to Himself was to create man in the Image of Christ. Eternal security. Yes, this points to the secured eternality of the true believer simply because the Image of God is an Eternal Christ. God allowed several salvific opportunities to gracefully pamper us. It is of grace lest any should boast.Read More
