HE IS IN FULL CONTROL (Part five)

0 Comments
Every machination of the Antichrist must be designed to accept God's protocol. Control! Satanism cannot, dares not operate outside God's sanction of his evil games. The Bible says he will give the number representing his name (666) to the people he will lord it over. He must do that. His hegemonic Satanism is just seven years. He cannot exceed this. Control. The Church must experience the eschatological rapture a la Enoch's 'translation' and before then the Antichrist son of Lucifer cannot set up any earthly governmental machinery over born again members of the body of Christ -the true Christians. Impossible! "Impossican't!" (My Pastor, Rev. Chris Okotie will jocularly asseverate).Read More

HE IS IN FULL CONTROL (Part two)

Isaac being the second of the three progenitors of Israel, prefigures Christ, the Second Member of the Godhead, even the perfect manifestation of the unseen Jehovah. God, in Isaac, was still in control. Amen. Jacob must come into physical contact with Him to prepare the exodus of Jah people. The Israelites must bring Him down to the earth a la worship –true adoration of the Most High. Pharaoh, the Antichrist of their days, kicked vehemently against an impending loss of slaves to lord over.Read More

We may not have the physical location of Eden again but that can never make Him lose control of the earth. Satan thought he had firm control, having executed a successful putsch against the dominion of Adam, and especially having, as his global priest, Cain, the very first born of Adam's family. The Genesis 3:15 spoken word of God found a germination in Seth: for in his days men began to call upon the name of the Lord. God must save the world to prove His firm control so eight souls were the surviving evangelists of His coming.Read More

Righteousness (5)

1 Comment
The first biblical couch of ‘righteousness,’ in Genesis 15:6, was Mosaic. Moses never saw Abraham. How did he come to know of Abrahamic life? It was dictated to him by God, (which was, and which is and which is to come), Jehovah who saw it all. Without doubt, I can hear God telling Moses, “Abraham believed Me -the I AM- and, opening a celestial account on his behalf, I calculated and entered the sum of ‘righteousness’.” Where did Abraham get the faith? From the Word of God. Abraham owned neither the faith nor the Word: for both are of God. Selah!Read More

Righteousness (1)

1 Comment
Zacharias pointed out the necessary outwardness of our piety, saying: "In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life" [Luke 1:75]. The reason for this show of the inherent 'righteousness' is simply that it is our duty to interpret righteousness for the beneficial digestion of what we are to their blind ocular perception. Our Christian lives are interpretation of the righteousness of Christ, our Dwelling. In Greek the word 'holiness' is hosiotēs (hos-ee-ot'-ace) 'piety towards God, fidelity in observing the obligations of piety, holiness.' From the heathen, with whom God had no spiritual transaction of any covenant, God expected no piety. To the Israel of His covenant, even before the parturition of the patriarchal twelve, God said, "....Be ye holy; for I am holy" [1Peter 1:16]; taken from Leviticus 11:44. God was careful not to say it to the Egyptian, Roman, Indian or Chinese. Only to one nation of Israel He had the covenant, ergo, Paul will often write, "First to the Jew then to the Gentiles."Read More

Tithes Revisited (six)

On account of death, the first high priest from Levi, that is Aaron, was replaced. Up until the time of Pauline scripting of the Book of Hebrews, death had brought about an ineluctable replacements to that office. But of Melchizedek, whose natural genealogy the Scripture is silent about, is absolutely antitypical to the office of the Lord Jesus. The Holy Spirit, through Paul, teaches that this king-priest Melchizedek, said to be figuratively living, undying like the eternal Jesus, continues to receive tithes. How is this possible? It is a theological issue. Melchizedek signalizes the true High Priest, even the Initiator of the Old and the New Testaments, the Lord Jesus, the Alpha and the Omega; the One who was, is, and is to come, the Almighty.Read More

Tithes Revisited (five)

All these giving, done in faith, are actually business transactions with the Possessor of heaven and earth. For the simple fact that tithes, originally given out of faith, and in theological facticity that Jehovah is the Possessor of the universe and heaven, and an offer devoid of any legality, most definitely makes it an act of faith, without which no man receives anything from God. "The just," the Bible points out, "shall live by his faith" (Habakkuk 2:4). Christians are connected to their God by faith alone. What about a rich man like Solomon, does he need to tithe, having all his financial needs and wants answered? A Solomon-rich person is still a needy individual. The word of God, "But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body" [1Corinthians 15:38] is what gives the dead rotten seed of faith (your money) the desired body. The seed sown will take care of childlessness, ill health, ignorance, weakness, security et cetera. Amen.Read More

Tithes Revisited (four)

Abraham was not prompted by the legalism of Mosaic Law. Abraham did not handover the tithes of his volitional drive to Aaron who, together with every priest of his progeny, did die (read verse 8). He paid it to the Melchizedek i.e. the ‘immortality’ in representation of Christ. If the appropriation of faith in Jesus is what makes one a Christian, then it is quite germane to say that Abraham's faith in Jehovah makes him a Christian. Jesus, in Melchizedek, received the tithes from Abraham, a type of a Christian. Abraham’s tithes was not of an extraction of legality. Read More

Tithes Revisited (three)

"If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ." Moving towards the didactic crescendo, Paul reminds them of the legal claim he possesses, more than the Old Testament priesthood, over the tenth part of their substantial worth. 13) "Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? 14) Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel." The tithes that have been brought to the temple form a good part of the things found on the altar of the Temple. God's storehouse has not crumbled. Or has it?Read More

           The legalism of Old Testament, concerning tithing, which they employ, does not hold any argumentative water at all. Abraham, who first offered his tithe did not have to comply out of any religious and coercive straitjacket terms. Father Abraham gave it out of sheer faith. Now we can comfortably say that God had no choice but to give an imprimatur to an idea solely envisioned by faithful Abraham, to bless HIS Israelites.

                It was not only a case of God knowing this in eternity of the past, HE was the One who deposited the thought into Abraham's heart. Amen.

PROOF OF POWER (2)

Being the One who told Abraham to, "Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:" of Genesis 12:1, it then behoves His excellent Divinity to show His Almighty power. God would not allow His covenanted son and friend to lose his wife. The manifestation of His power got Abraham's family protected from Pharaoh's incursion. Why? Satan wanted to scuttle the birth of the next man to receive the baton towards the emergence of the nation of Israel, and ultimately the birth of Jesus. Read More

Get Jesus Involved (1)

0 Comments
Manoah had involved Jesus when he prayed to God for a son. The epithet 'angel of the LORD' is, in many cases, the epiphany of the unseen Jehovah. This is the preincarnate manifestation of Christ Jesus. He said HIS name is 'secret' which in Hebrew is pil'ı̂y or pâlı̂y' (pil-ee') meaning: 'wonderful, remarkable, incomprehensible, extraordinary.' Who does the oracular afflatus call 'wonderful'? It is the expected Messiah of Isaiah 9:6. It is Jesus the Christ. As many times Samson got Jesus involved he brought the extortionate belligerency of the enmity of the Philistines to their knees.Read More

Who would have known Mary if she had just as made the mistake of committing just one seemingly innocuous sexual act in her life, before marriage? One act of fornication would have broken her virginity, rendering her absolutely ineligible to conceive the Saviour of the world! One illicit sex would have disqualified her womb from the actualization of the Incarnation! “All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any;” says Paul in1Corinthians 6:12. So many useless, inconsequential habits and deeds have ruined humanity. Too bad!Read More

It is a well-known fact that Job was, personally, guiltless of the predicament he found himself. He faced his trials with a certain equanimity. Tribulations are good for us. They teach us how to wear the fitting robe of patience. It is getting worse these days after six thousand years of Adam's unfortunate act that has plunged man into this quaggy state of depravity.Read More

FAITH RESPONSIBLE (I)

0 Comments
Faith is an established understanding in the heart which one sees as the solution to problems. The foundational ground of faith is of utmost importance. To the unlearned heart, faith can come from anywhere, and to such mind, it is debatable when you say that true faith stems from the knowledge of the word of God, in the name of Jesus. Your faith cannot stand the true test of global vicissitudes outside Christ based faith. All other ground, as the hymn renders, is sinking sand.Read More

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

0 Comments
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.’ Read More

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."Read More
