CHRISTIANITY (5)

0 Comments
God will never create another species of people better than Christians. We are His peripoesis. What is peripoesis? It is found in 1Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:” The word ‘peculiar’ is the Greek peripoesis, which makes us a purchased property of His Divinity. If God will ever buy anything, would He spend His resources in exchange for a perishable item? As sinful as humans are, no right thinking one among us would want to use our hard earned money on anything that is valueless. Jehovah sits in eternity. If He should love to purchase clothing, for instance, would the ETERNAL One buy raiment that will ever go out of fashion? Would the LORD God give out His bargaining strength for an acquisition that will see and be affected by corruption? Would a fabric that will be torn, as the time goes on, be God’s acquired possession? Peripoesis have definitions of: ‘preservation, safe keeping and a purchased acquisition.’ The preservation of the Christian is the sole preserve of the Trinity. How do I know this? It says in the Scriptures, “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” [John 3:16]. Read More

IT IS A FLABBERGAST THAT JESUS IS MY FRIEND (two)

Our friendship with the Lord Jesus is a wonderment. No angel boasts of this unknown familiarity. Not even the closest: the awesome foursome (as Rev. Chris Okotie loves to call them) who maintain a glorious aerobatic existence around God’s throne, of course, not Michael, the foremost warrior angel or the well-known Gabriel who stands before the throne. Heaven will, no doubt, celebrate this Divine friendship. O how blessed are the Christians! Hallelujah! Read More
