PREPARE FOR TRIBULATION

PREPARE FOR TRIBULATION

“Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus…Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ [2Timothy 2:1-3]

1. I charge you to be strong in the Lord, for we “… must through MUCH TRIBULATION enter into the kingdom of God”[Acts 14:22] Every man that comes to Christ shall be TRIED, not by God but the TEMPTER, that the “… TRIAL of your FAITH, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ”[1 Peter 1:7] TRIALS are the work of Satan working through the FLESH to brings afflictions and accusations against children of God, as it is written: “…for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night” [Revelations 12:10] Men, like clay are of diverse texture. Whereas the weak easily break down in the heat of affliction, I encourage you to be strong and endure to the end and be glorified in Jesus Christ, as the Bible says: “Blessed is the man that ENDURETH TEMPTATION: for when he is tried, he shall receive the CROWN OF LIFE …” [James 1:12]

2. There were TRIBULATIONS in every age and whatever afflictions you are passing through is neither knew nor uncommon. Both the RIGHTEOUS SAINT and the WORST OFFENDER must contend with hardship of one sort or another in this world, as it is written: “There hath no TEMPTATION taken you but such as is COMMON TO MAN: but GOD IS FAITHFUL, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make A WAY TO ESCAPE, that ye may be able to bear it” [1Corinthians 10:13] Whereas the SINNER suffers for his offence, the RIGHTEOUS is afflicted to prove his FAITH. Brethren, it is no good to endure for a while and then collapse into sin. I will remind you what the Bible says: “And ye shall be HATED OF ALL MEN for my name’s sake: but he that ENDURETH TO THE END SHALL BE SAVED” [Matthew 10:22]

3. The earth is distressed and PROPHECY is fulfilled, as it is written: “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring” [Luke 21:25] Satan knows his time is short and no nation shall escape the tribulation ahead, as the earth is purged by unimaginable suffering. This generation shall be purged in the crucible of TRIBULATION, to separate WHEAT from CHAFF the appearance of the Lord. Those who fear the Lord have no reason to fear, but rejoice; assured that present challenges are incomparable to the JOY of being caught up with the Lord at His Coming, as the Bible says: “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD” [Romans 8:18-19]

4. Present TRIBULATION shall cause many to FALL AWAY from the FAITH and expose Apostate Church, as it is written: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come A FALLING AWAY, and that MAN OF SIN BE REVEALED, the son of perdition” [2 Thessalonians 2:3] This PROPHECY is fulfilled as we witness an onslaught of FALSE PREACHERS and their hapless flocks FALL AWAY into APOSTASY. APOSTATE CHURCH is not hard to find, she is busy building bridges to all shades of FALSE RELIGION in a global inter-faith quest for peace. But there shall be no peace, “For when they shall say, PEACE and SAFETY; then SUDDEN DESTRUCTION cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” [1Thessalonians 5:3] Listen closely, as the temple priests persecuted the apostles, renegade Church shall afflict the SAINTS, and  “…whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service [John 16:2]

5. The BEAST shall arise in the midst of TRIBULATION, as it is written: “And the BEAST which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the DRAGON GAVE HIM HIS POWER. And his SEAT, and great AUTHORITY. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and ALL THE WORLD WONDERED AFTER THE BEAST” [Revelations 13:2-3] The Beast is Satan incarnate in specially chosen men to deceive and drive all nations into a GLOBAL ALLIANCE for peace and prosperity. This generation is rushing down the tunnel to ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT, and when it is done, the MAN OF SIN shall appear to unleash unprecedented terror and BLASPHEMY against God and His SAINTS, as the Bible says: “And he opened his mouth in BLASPHEMY AGAINST GOD, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to MAKE WAR WITH THE SAINTS, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” [Revelations 13:5-7]

6. Beloved, be strong in the Lord and hold on as PROPHECY is fulfilled. Famine, terror, wars, climate change, etc., are the fingers of TRIBULATION creeping all over the earth like never before. Though multitudes are turning their backs to Christ, in the heat of afflictions, I enjoin you to hold on to the PROMISE of His Coming, when the SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS shall arise to heal all pains, as it is written: “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall” [Malachi 4:2] At His Coming, we shall be liberated from this body of sin and suffering and shall be glorified with Him forever [1 John 3:2] Friend, I invite you to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and receive GRACE to ride through pressing TRIBULATION and be TRANSLATED at His Coming, amen

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 gone through many cycles of life, as home to diverse creatures including other species of humanoids, spiritual personalities, animals, plants, etc. What those in search of the “MISSING LINK” classify as progenitors of man, are creatures whose time elapsed before the CREATION of Adam. 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 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 duel of LIFE against DEATH. 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

1. Many people struggle and wrestle with the Bible. They have issues understanding and accepting Bible TRUTH, because they read Holy Scriptures like common literature. If you cherry-pick what to believe and throw others overboard, you will never come to terms with the WORD of God. The simple reason you wrestle with Scripture is your nature; you are a natural man and the Bible was dictated by the Holy Ghost. You are like a barely literate child reading 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, and 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, but WISDOM of this world is FOOLISHNESS, because: “…God made foolish the wisdom of this world” [1Corinthians 1:20] RELIGION cannot decode the WORD of God and many years of service in a religious organization cannot exorcise a man from asking foolish questions, as it is written: “But AVOID FOOLISH QUESTIONS, and genealogies, and contentions,
and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain” [Titus 3:9]

3. The Ethiopian eunuch embarked on the hazardous pilgrimage to Jerusalem, as proof of religious piety. On his way home, he read the Scriptures but was as far away from TRUTH as when he embarked on the journey. He was at his wit’s end when 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 until it is DECODED and REVEALED by His SPIRIT. Israel received the ORACLES of God but struggled to please God because they handled His WORD bereft of REVELATION and their hearts 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] Those who read the Bible outside REVELATION established in Jesus Christ do so as NATURAL MAN and will always resist the things of God, because “… 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, as the Bible says: “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. Friend, REMOVE THE VEIL. The RELIGION you cherish so much could be the VEIL in your eyes! Your carefree life or even the church you attend could be the VEIL. To BREAK OUT of the VEIL, I challenge you to rea, and it shall be given; “…unto you to know the MYSTERIES of the kingdom of heaven,…” [Matthew 13:11] Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and the SCRIPTURES you struggled to unravel in times past shall be your DAILY BREAD. Call upon Him now and He will arise to your rescue, amen
