Righteousness (4)

1 Comment
Righteousness is not a visibility of a worn toga. It is the covering raiment for the regenerated soul. Not visible to the naked eyes, it becomes apropos for the corporeality of the redeemed to interpret the honourificabilitudinitatibus of the new man in Christ. Who is this new man? He is revealed in Colossians 3:9-10, which reads, “…seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; 10) And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:” The new man is the creation of the Lord Jesus of whom the Scripture says, “…and without him was not any thing made that was made” [John 1:3]. The new man’s spiritual locale is found in his Maker. 2Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”Read More

CONJUGAL PALAVER (1)

                She should have accorded her husband her infamous serpentine discourse. It never occurred to her where she was plunging the entire human race when she thought within herself, "I've got this." The tempter meant a wicked business! Unbeknown to the woman was a tsunami that had taken the innoxious form of a three minute's foggy drizzle. It, she ominously thought, was just a harmless curiosity that hissed through fanciful fangs devoid of venom of paralysis. She took upon herself, the role that had no existence in the marital code of Eden –God's home.

                She spoke, unconstitutionally, without the authorisation from the authorised Adam. Words, before God, are so important that they must be brought before His adjudication. Armed with an idiotic confidence, unfortunately, she did not know that she was actually working against the will of God. What an ironic event! The one who was created to bait the enemy of God into incarceration is falling prey to a serpentine manipulation!

IS THE LORD GOD THE AUTHOR OF MORAL EVIL? (four)

2 Comments
One of the meanings of 'Ĕlôhı̂ym is 'magistrate'. God's guilt will rob Him of all moral justifications to try anybody. His insistence on judging wrongdoers will only give Him the evil persona of a sadistic tyrant. A guilty judge has no rectitude of any moral standing to try any offender. He must vacate the bench. God will forever be the good KING. Why? The good Book says in Psalm 110:1, "A Psalm of David. The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool." All enemies of righteousness must come to judgment. The sinless Jehovah cannot be one of the condemnable lots. Why His righteous holiness is eternally a certainty is found in Psalm 45:6, which says, "Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre."Read More

WHAT IS MARRIAGE ALL ABOUT? (3)

0 Comments
Love is not a feeling. It is a commitment. A great man of God defines love saying, "A love called out of the heart of the lover on account of the value placed on the object of his love." For believing the finished work of salvation by Jesus, God places a huge value upon the regenerate soul. The husband, understanding the love of Jesus, goes to do likewise to his wife. The 'love' expressed is the Greek agape, 'an unconditional affection.' There is, therefore, no excuse for not loving the wife. None whatsoever. Ephesians 5:22 tells the woman, "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord." What is the Greek word for 'submit'? It is hupotassō (hoop-ot-as'-so): 'to arrange under, to subordinate, obey.' Hupotassō comes from hupo (under) and tasso (arrange properly).Read More

Tithes Revisited (six)

0 Comments
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

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

Tithes Revisited (two)

When the Temple curtain tore in two at the death of Jesus, the Holy Spirit left the Jerusalem Temple. After the Pentecostal inaugural establishment of the Church, HIS place of assemblage with God's children had always been the Church auditorium. That which was put in the storehouse must continue lest we be found guilty of "robbing God." Amen. 'Storehouse' of Malachi 3:10 is ôtsâr (o-tsaw'): 'a depository.' Three verses prove that ôtsâr is of the temple. Malachi 3:8, "Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings." If a refusal to handover tithes and offerings constitute robbery of God's property, and I give out only my offerings am I not a thief in tithing? Selah!Read More

Tithes Revisited (one)

0 Comments

           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.

TRINITY OF THE GODHEAD (6)

There cannot be four, two or a thousand of THEM: in the Godhead. Whoever thinks there are more or less than three should come with the proof of Scripture. "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one" [1John 5:7]. The word 'one' is heis (heis`) in the Greek, meaning: 'a neuter 'one' implying one in all things: essence, power, majesty, knowledge.’ Hebrews 12:24 reads, "And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel." The book of 1Peter 1:2 does strike the cord of the Divine accord found in the Trinity. It reads, "Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.” There, most certainly, would not have been any Divine Mediation without the instauration carried out by the Trinity, through which we become recipients of the soteriological grace of the Most High. Amen! Read More

Isaiah 42:8, "I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images" is an established fact that God does not share honour and worship. Why –have you ever asked yourself–- would attributes of Divinity be shared among the Trinity? What a perfect plan of Divinity is in operation: God, the Father, sits in the celestial assizes as the absolute Judge; God, the Son, is seated as the Eternal Advocate; the Divine Witness is none other than the Holy Spirit!

There is no gainsaying the Eternal Father's almightiness even if Luke 18:27, "And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God;" is silent about it. An eminent Job could not hide the prevalent truism of "I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee" (Job 42:2). Revelation 1:8 is an unveiling of Jesus as the ‘Almighty’, the Greek of which is pantokratōr (pan-tok-rat'-ore): 'he who holds sway over all things; the ruler of all; the all ruling, that is, God (as absolute and universal sovereign).' This is the Lord Jesus whom the world would gladly see as nondescript –just one of the prophets. Read More

In the Palestinian days of His earthly sojourn, and in fact, centuries before then, Jehovah God was seated in the holiest compartment of the temple, covered by the second veil, called katapetasma (kat-ap-et'-as-mah). God, the Father, needed not come down. Seated in Majestic Divinity, receiving worship was the Holy Spirit. Why? Because the Trinity constitutes one God. We understand from Scripture that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit, both of God the Father and of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is, therefore, not left out in the profundity of John 10:30, "I and my Father are one." Put 'I' and 'are' together and an invocation of 'I AM,' the covenant name of JEHOVAH has been established. Read More

TRINITY OF THE GODHEAD (2)

The LORD God will remain eternally spotless spiritually. He alone, therefore, must show His unprecedented loving kindness. He cannot, as the eternally seated One on the throne (Eternal Judge), come down to save mankind. The invisibility of the Holy Spirit would not attempt it. This leaves the seen One among the Three: the Second Member, Jesus Christ. HE is the Jehovah of legality. There is no way, according to the Scripture of theology, that any man would ever be jurisprudentially redeemed into God's eternal loving arms, as far as adjudication is concerned, if He were just One Entity. Another reason why Christ must wear the toga of corporeality is that if One of the Members does not, of necessity, assume the representative capacity of Sonship, none can ever enter the filial relationship of "Abba Father" with the Creator.

                This is the verity of the Godhead.

                Eternally seated on the throne is One.

                Through the macrocosmic truism of creationism, in the corporeality of the Godhead, of Himself, traverses One.

                Filling to the brim, the entire universe and creation, and to an overflowing is, yet of HIM, the Third One.

                Who among the Three-like-One and the One-like-Three is greater or the greatest?

PROOF OF POWER (3)

God does not just display a whimsical proof of power. For an eternal good He has always shown His salvaging hand. All these demonstration of His power is not for the fun of it. Of immense interest is the fact that all this show of power is directed at a certain species of His treasured entities. Paul said, "to us-ward who believe," so who are the 'us?' They are in the preceding verse. "The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints," [Ephesians 1:18].Read More

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

Ten times in Genesis 1:3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26, 28 & 29 the Bible records "And God said..." And ten times it was incontestably so. That was power. Creationism recorded another perfection in Adam and the Eden home. God did not stop them from sinning. The Creator, King and God is also the seated Judge, in the celestial assizes. Adjudication in every intelligent act of creation must come before Him who was, is, and is to come. Amen. At the ultimate cup fullness of man's iniquitous ways, only eight souls passed the spiritual test of righteousness. HIS miraculous power was again put to test. Read More

NIGERIA’S ESCHATOLOGICAL ROLE (3)

0 Comments
Today, as we know, in the United Kingdom where the best Bible version of the King James Version came from, the best teachers of the kerygma in that country are proudly Nigerians! Amen! It is quite apposite that some Nigerians should be versed in biblical exegesis. The impressive dexterity of Rev. Chris Okotie's pedagogical erudition pertaining to exegetical didacticism of Scripture should not be unexpected. It is all about Nigeria's Hamitic eschatological missionary commitment to the coming of Jesus. Ham must of soteriological ground warn the world of the inexorable emergent of the wicked son of perditionable Satanism. Read More
