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

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

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

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.

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
