OBEDIENCE AND SUBMISSION [nine]

0 Comments
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

OBEDIENCE AND SUBMISSION [two]

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.

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

The Eden garbing of Adam the male and the female made it a possibility for the same LORD God, who provided them with the garb of forgiveness, to step again into time, Who is eternal, to display His full beneficence, in His full glory. The LORD God appeared to Moses as both the impeccable Judge and the eternal Saviour. God must both be the ultimate Judge and the undying Saviour to perfect the soteriology. At Eden, the sin contaminated Adam and he ran into hiding, feeling badly garbed in iniquitous disposition to come face to face with the Most High who had walked in Majesty into Eden, His home. At the Mount Sinai experience, Moses, who, hitherto, had spoken so familiarly with His God, could not lift up even his hoary head to apprehend the physical presence of Divinity.Read More

A stupefying change is the occurrence when Jesus died for us on the cross. When He died, we, the preordained elect of the foreknowledge of Jehovah, died with Him to rise with the Great Shepherd on the third day. Our nature, through this inexplicable phenomenon, changed. We took on His divine nature: never to be arraigned for any spiritual offence, here on earth and in the empyreal assizes. Glory be to Jesus, now and forever. Amen!Read More

Christians cannot be wallowing in the debt of sinfulness and be said to have the righteousness of Christ. One should have been acquitted to don the righteousness of God. Spiritual acquaintance makes unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption. If God be for us who can be against us, the elect? Absolutely none can. One of Christ’s characters in this verse is, Everlasting Father. As the offspring of the eternality of His Fatherhood, we live as eternally as Jesus Christ. Amen. Discharged from sin, we stand by the side of our Redeemer.Read More

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

It was understood when, after all said and done, this happened, “Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them” [Genesis 3:21]. They who are guilty, and to whom justice demands hellish gaol of eternal punishment, death, that is, are here seen clothed: in divine righteousness. Unbelievable! That clothing was probationary. It was the temporary raiment of righteousness. How did God do it? The LORD God of creationism used His sovereignty to suspend Adamic death in hell. Adam was provided with an inexplicable second chance. Read More

God, as a Businessman, will never lose His capital. He always makes sure of that. He knew that, unlike the progenitor of the antediluvian miscreants, some of the Adamic stock would come to Him for salvation. Those ones would ignite the soteriological gene in them, and make their way to the Saviour, Jesus Christ. They will see the Light, after having believed the word of the saving grace. To them is the reservation of celestial regeneration midwifed by God, the Holy Spirit. Amen. Romans 1:17 “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.”Read More

For four gruelling days of mental discomfort, the family of the deceased Lazarus continued to ask, “Why us; where is Jesus, the supposedly Friend of our dear brother?” Questions that refused to supply some meaningful answers. God must do things in style. When He eventually showed up –God always shows up to people of faith—, Jesus told them what they never knew of Him, “I am the resurrection, and the life.” Verse 40 reads, “Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” The Author of soteriology took them back to the day of old, the day when as the Visitant He ask of Abraham’s understanding, "Is any thing too hard for the LORD" [Genesis 18:14]?Read More

The king had changed their Jewish names, which reflected the holy name of Jehovah. Hananiah was changed to Shadrach, which means ‘the servant of Aku (moon god); Mishael was given the foreign name of Meshach which has a probability of being a name in honour of the sun god. Azariah was named Abednego (servant of Nego, Nebo or Ishtar i.e. "the morning star" and "the perfect light" to Babylonian idolatry). They refused to hoist the infamous flag of their idolatrous tags. They stuck with Jehovah. Did the Lord God try to help them by making Nebuchadnezzar change his mind? Faith was put on trial. God Himself showed up among His children of faith. Read More

SOTERIOLOGY MINUS JESUS [IV]

0 Comments
A conscious belief effort, on the part of an individual, in Christ, is never a mere act. It is a pleasing act of faith expended, based on the will of the Creator which magnetises a divine reward of eternal consequence. That person gets endowed with God’s very life of eternity. Minus Jesus, salvific actuation of empyreal ascendancy is unequivocally infeasible. This is the reason why people will go to hell (uncomfortable to my mind though) for all eternity: their rejection of the finished work of Jesus, on the cross. The truth is: when we get to heaven, we will know why. Read More

CHRISTIANITY (5)

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
