OBEDIENCE AND SUBMISSION [two]

0 Comments
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.

FREE MORAL AGENCY [5]

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

FREE MORAL AGENCY [4]

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 [two]

0 Comments
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

JOHN CHAPTER 3 VERSE 16 [one]

0 Comments
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

HEARTBREAK

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!

IS THERE A CURSE ON AFRICA? [3]

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

UNVEILING THE SECOND MEMBER OF THE GODHEAD [ten]

Jesus Christ, the Lord from heaven, an uncreated Being, merely participated in the fleshly nature of Adamic corporeality. Christ wore the humanity of Jesus, the son of Mary, as a man wears his clothing. Christ needed to become a human being to save Adam from the annihilating sinful nature. Remember what it says in John 1:14 that “the WORD was made flesh” and I explained that the ‘made’ is actually ginomai, meaning ‘become’. Peace that passes all understanding is what to expect from the Prince of peace. For an unprecedented whole millennium, the LORD Jesus will sit on His throne of righteousness in administration of perfect peace which none other can give other than 'which is, and which was, and which is to come,' Lord Jesus, the Almighty.

UNVEILING THE SECOND MEMBER OF THE GODHEAD [nine]

In Zechariah 6:13 the ‘Counsellor’ is at once the King and the Priest after the order of Melchizedek – without a beginning and no ending of His Majestic sacerdotalism due to the fact of His eternality. The ubiquity of Jesus is captured in Luke 21:15. Who can give wisdom to the hearts of several people in diverse locations save the Most High? Jesus containerizes the entire wisdom and knowledge of God, ergo, He knows all things. There is no gainsaying the fact that only an entity of divinity can be made to us: wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption found in 1Corinthians 1:30.Read More

Each day the LORD God was there, among them in Eden, it was a latria offering to the Creator. Adam and his wife constitute the number two of the invocation of the presence of JESUS. Amen. You can never find it anywhere in scriptural documentation of God the Father’s vacation of the empyreal throne. He is always seated there: on the throne. So, who is this Entity who walked into the Eden Garden ‘every cool of the day’? Not the Holy Spirit –no one can claim ocular perception of Him— which leaves us with none other than the only perceptible Second Member of the Godhood. Christ, indeed, had always been, just as the Father and Holy Spirit.Read More

God the Father had in His hand of eternality, a scroll. The angelic enunciation was beyond the capability of the angels or the crowned elders, ergo, beyond any being of creation. Only a hand of eternality could approach and also take from the eternal hand of God. This is a very good reason for the Trinitarian reality. Moments of exigencies, as this one, makes the Trinity very inevitable. When God must be seated, and God must be on His eternal feet and still be in the Almighty fashion of Jehovah, an Entity – of Divine equality – must be present for each occasion. The rectitudinous stance of God, seated as Judge, would not befit Him playing the role of the Redeemer-Advocate. Therefore, God the Son, Jesus Christ, the eternal One, Whose goings forth is of old, must be the One to stand on the eternality of feet and to stretch forth His Eternal hand, which has always, from eternal past, been known to the Father’s. God appropriately took it (the scroll) from God. Hallelujah. Amen.Read More

There are three distinct LORDS in the heavenly assizes: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. If the first LORD is the Eternal Father, and the second Lord is the Second Member of the Godhead, Christ, then Jesus Christ is indeed the Lord from heaven (John 3:13). That Jesus Christ has Sovereignty of celestial Lordship means that angels have always worshipped Him. Angels, as we understand, will not worship any other save the Lord God. The Second Member of the Godhead is, without doubt, essentially God.Read More

Lucifer’s Smoothness of Shenanigan (3)

0 Comments
The Creator did not even bother to acknowledge the physical presence of Lucifer, the real spirit behind the serpentine shenanigan. What does this tell me? Lucifer is a persona non grata. Uselessness is the order of his evil being. Adam’s wife gave her precious time and ears to a being of perdition. Methinks Lucifer had all the answers for spiritual ascendancy. Where art thou, Lucifer, when the LORD God stood to judge evil. Lucifer, the liar, and the father of it, could not be heard again. Of truth it is, that the light of God’s word which Adam made available to his wife, did shine but the darkness of Satanism that hung around the woman did not allow the woman to 'comprehend' it. The Greek for 'comprehend' (found in John 1:5) is katalambanō (kat-al-am-ban'-o): ‘to lay hold of so as to make one's own, to obtain, attain to, to make one's own, to take into one's self, appropriate'. Now that the physical presence of the Truth stood to judge, the persona non grata stance of Lucifer is revealed. Though, unfortunately, he had caused an unforgettable havoc on the Adamic race.Read More

OPPORTUNITY: DOES IT KNOCK ONLY ONCE? [1]

0 Comments
Each time a sermon invites one to the altar call of spiritual regeneration, it is an opportunity to be born again. Every time a proclaimer of the gospel approaches an individual, offering to lead him in the sinner’s prayer, giving him an opportunity to make a volte-face turn from the impending hell bound of those who do not have the salvific relationship with Jesus, it certainly is another opportunity. Some heard the same call, Church Services after dozens of Christian worship days before they finally decided, “I’m going to do it tonight!” For some others scores of proclaimers had to knock on the door of their homes or met them at different places before genuinely agreeing to say the prayer of salvation. In each of these cases does the philosophy of 'opportunity only knocks once' apply? Each time of a thousand times is actually the second chance, as far as God is concerned, explained Reverend Chris Okotie.Read More

Wisdom Is A Personage [2]

When you bring the personal pronoun 'I' into the picture, what is revealed is the Personage of Exodus chapter 3 verse 14. ‘I AM' is the Hebraic hâyâh (haw-yaw): ‘exist’. This ‘I AM’ is Jehovah. Jesus Christ is as eternal as God the Father, ergo, He did not come into being, i.e. created –He has an eternal existence before Abraham was brought into existence. The 'was’ and the 'am’ are, therefore, not the same as erroneously believed by Arians. The Jews who received this address understood Jesus perfectly and for this reason, they decided to stone Him to death in verse 59, for the very reason they sought to do the same in John 5:18, saying that by the asseveration of Jesus, “He makes Himself equal with God.”Read More

Christianity Is Acquittal And Discharge From Sinful Gaol. [2]

0 Comments
Contextually, the convexity of “If God be for us, who can be against us?” serves as the backdrop for the Christian’s acquittal: this must be noted. It is a rhetorical effusion that makes way for the following series of Pauline rhetorical questions from verse 32 to the 39th, proving that absolutely nothing comes at par with the Most High Jehovah. If absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of Christ, then, we are eternally safe in this salvation wrought on the cross of Calvary.Read More
