MYSTERIES OF CREATION Part One

1. Every man is known by what he knows. If any man does not know how he got here and where he is going, he is lost. Man is finite, mortal and crafted in flesh and blood. God is Spirit, immortal and invisible. Creator and creature are worlds apart, as the Bible says: “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” [Isaiah 55:9] Man relates by communication, God interacts by revelation. If all a man knows is by natural communication, he is not better than a beast. The Bible is the most widely read book and worst understood because it is inspired by God and a MYSTERY to those who read it without revelation. They are confounded by seeming contradictions and never find God. For example, the Bible says: “In the BEGINNING created the heaven and the earth” [Genesis 1:1] And in John is written: “In the BEGINNING was the WORD, and the WORD was with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD” [John 1:1] Two BEGINNINGS and one God may sound confusing to some but is not. Genesis proclaimed the onset of time and creation of the present world. John probed endless invisible worlds and assorted creations to unveil pristine revelation of God in the WORD. The former declared birth of time, the latter confirmed endless existence of God in the WORD.

2. The earth is as old as time, and the commencement of time, trumpeted by scientists as “BIG BANG” was the birth of our physical world. The earth had since endured many cycles of life with creatures both humanoid and otherwise. What some classify as progenitors of man, in search for a “missing link”, are creatures whose time elapsed. Though not the first on earth, MAN is by divine providence the LAST, HEIR and possessor of the earth, as it is written: “The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men [Psalms 115:16] At the beginning of this cycle, “…the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep…” [Genesis 1:2] The story began in heaven from where the; …great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” [Revelation 12:9] The invaders demonized inhabitants of the earth. Catastrophic consequences altered the orbit of the earth and the planet was enveloped in darkness, cut off from sun and moon. About 6,000 years ago, God restored our world in orbit round the sun and made man in His own image to repopulate the earth, as the Bible says: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth…” [Genesis 1:26]

3. God made man in His own image, but God is not FLESH, as the Bible says: “GOD IS A SPIRIT: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” [John 4:24] The first model of man was SPIRIT, in the  IMAGE of God, as it is written: “So God created man in his own image, IN THE IMAGE OF GOD CREATED HE HIM; MALE and FEMALE created he them” [Genesis 1:27] Take note, God created “HIM”; “MALE and FEMALE”. The first model of HIM had in him both male and female. The man was not bisexual or hermaphrodite but a spirit personality with capacity for both male and female genders. At the next stage of DIVINE AGENDA, God required a physical man to till the earth [Genesis 2:5-6] This was not the job for spirits, and God clothed HIM with the DUST OF THE EARTH, as the Bible says: “And the LORD God FORMED MAN OF THE DUST OF THE GROUND, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and MAN BECAME A LIVING SOUL” [Genesis 2:7] The new man, furnished with SPIRIT, SOUL and BODY was called ADAM. At the appointed time, God separated the FEMALE from HIM, as it is written: “…LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the RIB, WHICH GOD HAD TAKEN FROM MAN, MADE HE WOMAN … [Genesis 2:21-22]

4. God set the FIRMAMENT in place to separate TIME and TIMELESS DIMENSIONS, as it is written: And God said, Let there be a FIRMAMENT in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters” [Genesis 1:6] The firmament was set on “SECOND DAY of creation”, but sun, moon and stars were revealed on the “FOURTH DAY”, as the Bible says: “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years” [Genesis 1:14] The FIRMAMENT came before and is far beyond sun, moon and stars. FIRMAMENT it is not earth’s atmosphere or space as we count it, but the spiritual curtain that separates TIME and ETERNITY. On this side is the drama of light and darkness and on the other side, perpetual light. Earth is subjugated under dichotomy of good and evil. The other side is sealed in perfection. The FIRMAMENT cages man and Satan in time,  in mortal combat. Satan is spirit and man is flesh, without Jesus Christ to restore us to our original spiritual status, there is no hope of getting out of the duel ALIVE.

5. God was manifest in Jesus Christ to restore us to PRIME MODEL, as the Bible says: “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” [1 Timothy 3:16] Without mincing words, Jesus Christ is GOD MANIFEST IN FLESH AND BLOOD, the; “…brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person…” [Hebrews 1:3] If any man receives Jesus Christ as God MANIFEST in man, he is BORN AGAIN, not of flesh and blood but of Spirit, as it is written: “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” [John 3:6] Those who are born of the Spirit are “SPIRIT”, in the IMAGE of God. We are no longer subject to subjugated to TIME and limitations of the FIRMAMENT, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” [I John 5:4] Brethren, the battle has been long and the end of TIME is at hand. Very soon, the FIRMAMENT shall be shattered at the appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ, “…with the trump of God: and THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST: Then WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” [1 Thessalonians 4:16-17] Those who miss the TRANSLATION shall be left to face unprecedented TRIBULATION. I am sure you do not wish to be left behind, seek the Lord now, while He may yet be found and He will redeem your soul, amen.

MYSTERIES OF CREATION Part Two

1. In Part One of this series, we discussed visible and invisible WORLDS, FIRMAMENT, TIME and triple NATURE of man. In Part Two, we focus on Garden of EDEN, SIN, DEATH, the SEED of Adam and SEED of the serpent. The Bible says: “And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed” [Genesis 2:8] Two trees stood out in the Garden, namely: “…the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil [Genesis 2:9] When the fruits were ready, Satan showed up, behold it was the TREE OF LIFE transplanted from heaven, of which the Bible says: “In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the TREE OF LIFE, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations” [Revelation 22:2] Satan, knew his access to the FRUIT of the TREE was revoked and was bent doing same to man. God, knowing his intention, God gave His WORD as armour against the adversary and warned Adam, saying: “But of the TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” [Genesis 2:17] The only shield that could stop the fiery darts of the adversary was the WORD, but there was  loop hole; man’s WILL.

2. Eve, Adam’s wife, her weakness when she put the WORD of God to debate, saying: “…We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die” [Genesis 3:2-3] Satan “is a liar, and the father of it” [John 8:44] When he said to Eve, “YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE”, he seduced her with LIE and “IMPREGNATED” her with SIN. Sin is more than an act; it is the life form of Satan typified by rebellion against God. Sin is the image and true representation of Satan. In man, sin is a state of mind not necessarily an act, as it is written:: “…whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart” [Matthew 5:28] As soon as Eve stepped out of the Word of God, the account of sin was opened on earth. SIN made Eve eat the fruit not the other way, and . By deception, the seed of satanic life form was embedded in man through her. But Adam was not deceived, as the Bible says: “And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression” [1Timothy 2:14] Henceforth, there were two nations on earth. One, born of the SEED of Adam, “… which was the son of God” [Luke 3:38] Two, the nation of Satan, born in SIN embedded in the woman.

3. Another name for Satan is DEATH and his end is DESTRUCTION in the lake of fire, as it is written: “And the DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever [Revelation 20:10] Let me put it this way, Satan, SIN and DEATH are the same thing in different forms. SIN is the SEED, DEATH is FRUIT and Satan is the TREE. With the EVIL SEED passed to man through Eve, everyone born of woman is condemned to DEATH. Our enemy hides under the mask of DEATH to hunt and haunt men into cruel bondage. All praise to God, manifest in Jesus Christ, who; “…also himself likewise took part of the same; that THROUGH DEATH HE MIGHT DESTROY HIM THAT HAD THE POWER OF DEATH, THAT IS, THE DEVIL; deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” [Hebrews 2:14-15] In Jesus Christ we are delivered from SIN and DEATH to EVERLASTING LIFE through FAITH in His DEATH as atonement for our SIN, as it is written: …The just shall live by faith” [Romans 1:17] Those who live in perpetual FEAR OF DEATH confirm that they are slaves to SIN. I assure you, if any man is in Christ, he has passed from DEATH to EVERLASTING LIFE. Thus, says the Lord: “… I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live [John 11:25]

4. Satan sowed his SEED in Eden, using the SERPENT. This SERPENT was not a snake as some imagine, but one of humanoid creatures mentioned in Part One of this series. It is evident the creature was upright and not a creepy crawly until God cursed it, as it is written: “And the LORD God said unto the SERPENT, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; UPON THY BELLY SHALT THOU GO, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life” [Genesis 3:14] The tag, SERPENT, was derived from the spirit behind the mask, that is, Satan who is also known as DRAGON, SERPENT and DEVIL [Revelation 12:9] Listen carefully, God said to the SERPENT: “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between THY SEED seed and HER SEED; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” [Genesis 3:15] So then, we have THY SEED, that is, the SERPENT’S SEED and HER SEED,  that is, the SEED that shall come out of the woman.  Before we go further, let me remind you, the female gender has no SEED but man. In any case, “…ADAM KNEW HIS EVE HIS WIFESHE ; and SHE CONCEIVED, AND BARE CAIN, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And SHE AGAIN BARE HIS BROTHER ABEL…” [Genesis 4:1-2] Please take note, the Bible recorded one “KNOWING”, ONE CONCEPTION, but TWO BOYS, who were not twins! Scripture confirms Cain as the image and likeness of the SERPENT, and Abel, the son of Adam.  Cain was the SERPENT’S SEED, “… WHO WAS OF THAT WICKED ONE, and slew his brother…” [1 John 3:12] After Cain killed Abel, God replenished the stock of Adam with a son after his own LIKENESS, as it is written: “And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and BEGAT A SON IN HIS OWN LIKENESS, AFTER HIS IMAGE”  [Genesis 5:3]

5. The present world is a battle field between the sons of God and SERPENT’S SEED. It is the nature of SERPENT’S SEED, in every age, to persecute and kill the sons of God as Cain did. At the appointed time, prophecy was fulfilled, as it is written: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and HER SEED it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” [Genesis 3:15] As aforesaid, the woman has no SEED in her, but in this case conceived of the WORD and Jesus Christ was born, as it is written: “And the WORD WAS MADE FLESH, and dwelt among us…” [John 1:14] Jesus Christ was in every sense a man and being born of woman and God, for “… in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” [Colossians 2:9] Those who receive Jesus Christ in fulfilment of prophecy, as God manifest in flesh are BORN OF GOD and “… whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” [1John 5:4] I warn those who care to listen, the Lord shall return very soon and shall send His angels to “… sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” [Matthew 13:49-50] I encourage you to receive Jesus Christ today as your LORD and Saviout and be BORN OF GOD, amen.

 

BY WHAT AUTHORITY?

BY WHAT AUTHORITY?

“And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?” [Matthew 21:23]

1. Authority is the sovereign will of God.
The sovereign will of God is the power that holds all creation in perpetual equilibrium. The will of God is the immutable Word of God, which is Jesus Christ; “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power…” [Hebrews 1:3] Jesus Christ is the manifestation of supreme authority; “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” [Colossians 2:9] The evident expression of Christ’s authority is absolute power in all material and spiritual realms, as the Bible says: “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” [Matthew 28:18] All power resides in Christ and His Kingdom to save and grant everlasting life to those who believe the gospel preached in His name. Satan and his agents are powerless against those who are saved by the will and authority of Jesus Christ, who has: “…raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places…” [Ephesians 2:6] We are raised to everlasting life by the authority of Christ, to reign in His Kingdom free from sin, fear, worry and death. Your incessant fears and worries are proof that you are outside the Kingdom of God and in bondage to sin and death. Ask yourself; by what authority I am living my life? If in doubt, come to Jesus Christ today; the authority in His name will set you free.

2. Authority is legitimate power.
The seal of Christ’s Kingdom on earth is legitimate and infinite power. The power of the Kingdom works within to purge and mold us in the image of Christ and without to preach the mind of God with miracles, signs and wonders according to His purpose. A policeman wears the uniform “without” and speaks from “within”, for the state as proof of delegated authority. If any man claims to work for God let him show proof of the seal of His authority, within and without. When you are in church, do not be carried away by sugar-coated sermons but search the scriptures for the authority of the preacher. When a pastor or bishop is ordained, let him ask himself; by what authority am I inducted to this ministry? Before you fall into the webs of false prophets and sorcerers; “…try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world” [1 John 4:1] The Jews asked Jesus, “by what authority doest thou these thing” but in bad faith, to discredit Him. Wherever you find yourself, ask in good faith; by what authority are we doing the things we do? Remember, your now and eternity are at stake. It is your duty to know the authority by which your pastor or bishop operate. Do so, earnestly seeking the face of God in prayer and fasting.

3. Authority is not in Satan.
Simon was a false preacher and sorcerer to whom the people of Samaria; “…gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries” [Acts 8:10-11] This man bewitched huge congregations through sorceries, telling them he was “the great power of God”. When he saw the apostles demonstrate the power of God, he proposed to buy them off, as it is written: “And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost” [Acts 8:18-19] Beloved, prove the hands laid on you and the oil poured on your head. One thing is sure there is no salvation under clouds of satanic indoctrination. Run for your life from satanic agents in priestly robes who trade miracles for gain. They deceive with lying wonder but are; “…destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself” [1 Timothy 6:5] Those who boast of power without the authority of Present Truth are sorcerers. Before you are bewitched by another Simon in your quest for a miracle, take a breath and ask yourself; by what authority?

4. Authority is not tied to spiritual gifts.
Spiritual gifts are heavenly resources for earthly ministry and not proof of commission or divine authority. Prophet Isaiah had the gift of prophecy. He prophesied from chapter 1 to chapter 5 of his book. In chapter 6, he was commissioned and received the seal of authority as it is written: “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not…” [Isaiah 6:8-9] Over the ages, denominations and parishes have sprung up nurtured by spiritual gifts without Christ’s seal of authority. Spiritual gifts attract multitudes but lack the authority to raise men in the image and likeness of Christ. Balaam had the gift of prophecy but his doctrine taught; “…Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication” [Revelation 2:14] Those who lead the flock with gifts without commission are not purged from within and prone to sundry fleshly weakness. They are; “…blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” [Matthew 15:14] Before you jump at the next word of knowledge or prophecy, ask yourself; by what authority?

5. Authority is the seal of divine approval.
We are in last days; “…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” [Philippians 2:12] Remember, the authority of God is His Word which was made flesh in Jesus Christ. The prophetic revelation of Jesus Christ is the seal of authority that separate wheat from chaff in all generations. The generation of Jesus was sealed by the revelation of Christ the Son of God, as it is written: “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” [Matthew 3:17] Those who believed the voice of heaven were stamped, saved and sealed to everlasting life. This generation shall be separated to life or perdition by Present Truth of Christ’s revelation. Now, the Spirit says expressly that we are in the last days, the prophetic clock is at midnight hour and the appearance of the Lord is imminent. This is Present Truth; those who believe and prepare to receive Christ shall be translated to be with Him forever. If any man claims to speak in the name of the Lord, let him speak Present Truth, as it is written: “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them” [Isaiah 8:20]

REMOVE THE VEIL

REMOVE THE VEIL

“But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions,
and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain” [Titus 3:]

1. Many people struggle and wrestle with the Bible.
They have issues understanding and accepting Bible Truth, because they read Holy Scripture like common literature. If you cherry-pick what to believe and throw others overboard, you are as good as an unbeliever. The simple reason you wrestle with Scripture is you are a natural man and the Bible was dictated by the Holy Ghost. You are like a child trying to read the thesis of Albert Einstein on relativity theory. The Bible is more than literature. It is God revealed in the Word, as it is written: “the Word was with God, and the Word was God…And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,… [John 1:1 and14]

2. Foolish questions expose imperfection of human intellect.
The brain is designed to receive and program information from our natural senses. There shall be disputes as long as men apply head and not heart to the word of God. Some of the worst offenders are the best brains the world can offer. The wisdom of this world is foolishness in comparison to the word of God, because: “…God made foolish the wisdom of this world” [1Corinthians 1:20] Religion cannot decode the word of God. Many years of service in a religious organization cannot exorcise a man from asking foolish questions.

3. The Ethiopian eunuch took his religion seriously.
As proof of religious piety, he embarked on hazardous pilgrimage to Jerusalem. On his way home, he read the Scriptures but was as far away from Truth as when he embarked on the journey. In his predicament, Phillip came to his rescue, and said: “…Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him” [Acts 8:3031] This man loved God but his mind was blind to the mysteries of God.

4. The word of God is mystery.
Israel received the oracles of God but struggled to please God because they handled His word without revelation. Their hearts were blinded by rebellion to God, as it is written: “But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.” [2 Corinthians 3:14] Without revelation of Jesus Christ, they were driven as natural man to resist the things of God, as it is written: “… natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” [1 Corinthians 2:14]

5. Jesus Christ is the revelation of God.
It is written of Jesus Christ: “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high” [Hebrews 1:3] He is the Word made flesh [John1:14] Without Him no man can know God or understand Him. Thus says the Lord: “All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him” [Luke 10:22]

6. Remove the veil.
Religion could be the veil in your eyes! Your carefree life or even the church you attend could be the veil. To reach out to God and apprehend His mind and ways, you must accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. When you do so in sincerity and in faith, It shall be given; “…unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven,…” [Matthew 13:11] The gospel of Jesus Christ is simple, but we live in a world corrupted by false religion, social decadence and love of self. Many have been thus deceived from the simple faith and life of Jesus Christ, as it is written: “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” [2Corinthians 11:3]
Return to the Lord today.
Thus says the Lord: “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” [Matthew 11:29-30] Jesus Christ is not a slave master, He wants the best for you. Call upon Him now and He will arise to your rescue
