CIRCUMCISE YOUR HEART

1. CIRCUMCISION OF THE FLESH is the physical TOKEN of the EVERLASTING COVENANT between man and God. God said to Abraham:

“This is my COVENANT, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised. And ye shall CIRCUMCISE THE FLESH OF YOUR FORESKIN; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you” (Genesis 17:10-11)

2. TherePerhaps you do not know, CIRCUMCISION OF THE HEART really came first, followed many years later by that of the FLESH. CIRCUMCISION, in the infinite wisdom of God, was designed to RESTORE and bring man into God’s ETERNAL REST through Jesus Christ. Adam, the first to hear from God, was also the first to have his heart CIRCUMCISED and RESTORED. As you may well know, God passed the INSTRUCTION not to eat the forbidden fruit to Adam, not Eve (Genesis 2:16-17) The choice of Adam for CIRCUMCISION over Eve, is therefore a consequence as well as symbol of the requirement of CIRCUMCISION for the CHURCH. The CHURCH, like Adam, was established on the SPOKEN WORD of God and received His ORACLES. Evidently, the primary tool of CIRCUMCISION is a SHARP KNIFE, which in this case is the WORD of God, as it is written: “For the WORD OF GOD is quick, and powerful, and SHARPER THAN ANY TWOEDGED SWORD, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12) As soon as Adam fell into SIN, God brought out the SHARP KNIFE and cut deep into the foreskin of his heart, saying: “…WHERE ART THOU? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I WAS NAKED; and I hid myself” (Genesis 3:9-10) When Adam “saw” and “heard” the SHARP KNIFE, he hid himself, because he was NAKED. That was exactly where God wanted him! Every man that will be CIRCUMCISED must stand NAKED before God. In any case, the SHARP KNIFE caught up with him in his hiding place. Adam was confronted with his SIN, CONFESSED ALL and the FORESKIN of his heart was removed, as it is written: “…HAST THOU EATEN OF THE TREE, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?…The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I DID EAT” (Genesis 3:12) Adam answered the question correctly, though some argue that he merely passed the buck to his wife. More importantly, however, God accepted his CONFESSION. Right there in Eden, the template of CIRCUMCISION, i.e., RENEWAL of FAITH in God through CONFESSION and REPENTANCE was established. Adam CONFESSED and REPENTED, not because he had not known God, but for falling short of His requirements. God, in turn, SEALED his RETURN and RENEWAL with the shedding of blood. The Bible says: “Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them” (Genesis 3:21) Blood was necessarily shed when God killed a lamb or more and made coats of skins for Adam and his wife. By the shedding of blood, the sure foundations of CIRCUMCISION were built into SALVATION via the blood of Jesus Christ. In the natural, blood is shed when the KNIFE cuts the flesh. In the real sense, the blood of Jesus Christ, the LAMB of God, is shed every time hearts are CIRCUMCISED, to RENEW, SANCTIFY and CLEANSE the CHURCH, as the Bible says “… Christ also loved the CHURCH, and gave himself for it; That he might SANCTIFY and CLEANSE it with the WASHING OF WATER BY THE WORD” (Ephesians 5:25-26) The CHURCH is CIRCUMCISED, CLEANSED and REAPED in every age to bring in the harvest of the earth. Those who HEAR the VOICE of the Lord, in their generations, like Adam, and submit to the SHARP KNIFE of Present Truth are SANCTIFIED and gathered into God’s REST. The FINAL HARVEST of the earth is coming of the Lord to receive His BRIDE, but the CHURCH is not ready, by reason of UNCIRCUMCISION. This message echoes the VOICE of the Lord calling His CHURCH to present herself for CIRCUMCISION. If any man has ears, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the CHURCH.

3. CIRCUMCISION was given to Abraham as a TOKEN of the COVENANT God made with him and through him, to bring ALL MEN under the SHARP KNIFE of His WORD including YOU. The COVENANT had TWO CLAUSES. The first pertained to the territorial estate God bestowed on Abraham and his CHOSEN HEIRS, for an everlasting inheritance, as it is written: “In the SAME DAY THE LORD MADE A COVENANT WITH ABRAM, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates” (Genesis 15:18) The SECOND, which also incorporated the FIRST, opened the door of GRACE and CIRCUMCISION to all nations, as it is written: “And I WILL ESTABLISH MY COVENANT between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an EVERLASTING COVENANT, TO BE A GOD UNTO THEE, and to thy seed after thee” (Genesis 17:7) The two CLAUSES were SEALED with the TOKEN of CIRCUMCISION in the FLESH, to ALL MEN born in the household of Abraham or BOUGHT with money, as it is written: “And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, OR BOUGHT WITH MONEY OF ANY STRANGER, WHICH IS NOT THY SEED” (Genesis 17:12) By this subsection of the COVENANT, YOU and I were ADOPTED and established in the COVENANT OF CIRCUMCISION, not because we are Jews, but as ONE BOUGHT and ADOPTED by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. The Bible says: “For ye are BOUGHT WITH A PRICE: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6:20) So then, God is our FATHER, not by TOKENS in the FLESH, but by proof of CIRCUMCISION “MADE WITHOUT HANDS, IN PUTTING OFF THE BODY OF SINS of the flesh by the CIRCUMCISION OF CHRIST” (Colossians 2:11) The CIRCUMCISION OF CHRIST is not an outward show of piety or religious rituals, but the Lord purging His CHOSEN VESSELS, “That he might present it to himself a GLORIOUS CHURCH, NOT HAVING SPOT, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish” (Ephesians 5:27) If truly YOU and I were bought with the blood of Jesus Christ, “let us lay aside EVERY WEIGHT, and the SIN which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the RACE that is set before us” (Hebrews 12:1) The RACE before the CHURCH is the EXODUS to Gilgal, to be CIRCUMCISED at the HILL OF FORESKINS (Joshua 5:3)

4. CIRCUMCISION inevitably became the sole prerequisite for Israel to enter the Promised Land, after forty long years in the wilderness. God said to Joshua: “…Make thee SHARP KNIVES, and CIRCUMCISE AGAIN THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL the second time” (Joshua 5:2) Imagine being led by GLORY CLOUDS in the day and PILLAR OF FIRE by night for forty years, only to denied entry to the Promised Land by reason of UNCIRCUMCISION. These people ate angel’s food and fellowshipped in God’s Presence, but were disallowed to the Land until they were CIRCUMCISED! (Psalms 78:24-25) If CIRCUMCISION of the FLESH prevented Israel from entering the Promised Land, how much more shall UNCIRCUMCISION of the HEART deny access to God’s heavenly kingdom. The children of Israel were not CIRCUMCISED all the forty years spent in the wilderness and all elders who had their foreskins removed in Egypt died on the way, as it is written: “…All the people that came out of Egypt, that were males, even all the men of war, died in the wilderness…Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, them they had not circumcised” (Joshua 5:4-5) The present CHURCH is in many ways like Israel at Gilgal. All the elders who had their hearts CIRCUMCISED by the REVIVAL of the 1930s and 40s are mostly dead and gone to be with the Lord. The JOSHUAS and CALEBS in the FOLD are very few and we are largely an assembly of UNCIRCUMCISED flocks. We are so close to our destination, like Israel, yet so far away by reason of UNCIRCUMCISION. Our pulpits are overtaken by men who are neither CIRCUMCISED nor skilled to use SHARP KNIVES of the WORD of TRUTH. The ALMIGHTY has decreed that CIRCUMCISION must commence from the pulpit. Let every man that ministers at the altar of Christ step forward to be CIRCUMCISED.

5. CIRCUMCISION must necessarily begin from the priesthood, irrespective of age and status. Abraham, the prophet of God, was ninety-nine years old when he submitted to be CIRCUMCISED, as it is written: “And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin” (Genesis 17:24) I challenge all shepherds leading the flocks of Jesus Christ to step forward, NAKED before God and CONFESS every FAULT and SECRET SIN. We need not be told that CIRCUMCISION demands that we UNDRESS our hearts to the scrutiny of the SHARP KNIFE of the WORD of God. Though the VOICE of the Lord is calling all preachers and teachers His to Gilgal, those who have BLASPHEMED and SINNED against the Holy Ghost are deaf and will not heed the summon, because “…blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men” (Matthew 12:31) Beloved, no genuine servant of the Most High is exempt from CIRCUMCISION, by reasons of status, titles, riches, fame, size of congregation, etc. All these things are merely gifts to assist in the work of God. God, in the same manner, gave Eve to Adam as HELPMEET, but he mismanaged his HELPER and allowed her to rule over him. Is it true that God blessed YOU with earthly riches, spiritual gifts and dominion, for His work, but you allowed yourself to be enslaved to sexual sins, hypocrisy, filthy ambitions, covetousness, lies, emulation, political distractions, etc? What you need now is CIRCUMCISION, and though the pain is severe, the Lord insists that you allow His KNIFE to cut to the innermost parts unhindered. When we REPENT and RETURN to Him in sincerity and godly sorrow, the Lord surgically removes our FORESKINS of SIN, SELF and FLESH. Being CIRCUMCISED, we are CLEANSED, REVIVED and made ready for His Coming. CIRCUMCISION of the CHURCH prepares us for the OUTPOURING of the Holy Ghost and the GREAT REVIVAL that precedes the coming of the Lord. I plead with all men, irrespective of sect or denomination, to willingly submit to be CIRCUMCISED by the preaching and teaching of the WORD of TRUTH. Our time is far spent and this is no room for CANDY-COATED sermons and doctrines of devils. Whether you are reading or listening to this message, I admonish you not to harden your heart, as the Bible says: “TO DAY if ye will hear his voice, HARDEN NOT YOUR HEARTS, as in the provocation” (Hebrews 3:15)

6. CIRCUMCISION is for those who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and are desirous to be made ready to be TRANSLATED at His appearance in clouds of glory. If you are not BORN AGAIN, I enjoin you to turn you life over to Jesus Christ right now. REPENT and BELIEVE, by FAITH in the SALVATION preached in His NAME, amen

HARVEST OF THE EARTH

1. HARVEST OF THE EARTH is ripe, the Lord of HARVEST is ready and REAPERS are at work to separate WHEAT, TARES and CHAFF. The Bible says:

“And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the HARVEST OF THE EARTH is ripe” (Revelation 14:14-15)

2. HARVEST OF THE EARTH is the conclusion of allotted cycles of SOWING and REAPING. The earth is the FIELD and the “SEED is the word of God” (Luke 8:11) The SOWER is God, the SEED is His WORD and the WORD is God, as the Bible says: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1) The WORD was planted in the Garden of Eden and grew into the TREE OF LIFE, whose fruit is EVERLASTING LIFE “and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations” (Revelation 22:2) Shortly afterwards, another seed crept into Eden and the TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL sprang up beside the TREE OF LIFE. God warned Adam to stay clear of the second tree, 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) It is evident God did not plant this tree because everything God made “was very good” (Genesis 1:31) God did not plant the TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL to tempt Adam , as some argue, because “God cannot be tempted with evil, NEITHER TEMPTED HE ANY MAN” (James 1:1) The TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL got into the Garden because Adam slept on duty, as it is written: “But while men slept, HIS ENEMY came and SOWED TARES among the WHEAT, and went his way” (Matthew 13:25) The enemy that sowed TARES is Satan and the seed is FALSEHOOD. The Lord Jesus Christ related this parable above to explain how FALSEHOOD was crawled into Eden. Over time, the two trees filled the earth with WHEAT and TARES. WHEAT is the HARVEST of TRUTH. TARES are the offsprings of FALSEHOOD. The two SEEDS brought forth, in every age, according to their pedigree and REAPERS gathered them by their fruits, as the Bible says: “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” (Matthew 7:16) In the process of time, TARES grew abundantly, polluted the FIELD and MINGLED with the WHEAT. The HARVEST of WHEAT was threatened and God moved to renew His FIELD and preserve His HARVEST. God did two things. ONE, the WORD, that is TRUE SEED, became flesh and dwelt on earth. God was manifest in Jesus Christ to sow undiluted WORD/SEED by SACRIFICE on the Cross, at Calvary. TWO, the blood of Jesus Christ was shed to purge toxins of TARES and prepare the hearts of men to receive SALVATION. This is the incorruptible SEED; God was manifest in Jesus Christ and SALVATION is preached in His NAME in all nations and languages. If any man believes something else, it is FALSEHOOD. The Lord did not pull out the TARES, as that may harm the WHEAT, but said: “Let both grow together until the harvest:… ” (Matthew 13:30) Having done all that, Jesus Christ went back to heaven to await the FINAL HARVEST OF THE EARTH. Now, the FIELD is RIPE and READY for HARVEST. The Lord of HARVEST is coming to receive the bounty of His FIELD. He will burn the TARES and TRANSLATE His precious WHEAT to MANSIONS prepared for them in heavenly placed (John 14:2) Where do you stand? Are you WHEAT or TARES?

3. HARVEST OF THE EARTH kicked off as soon as the RAIN fell as promised by Jesus Christ, before His ascension. The first SHOWERS came at PENTECOST and the apostles went forth to sow the earth with the WORD. Faithful men and women, in who dwelt the Holy Ghost, followed their footsteps and sowed the TRUE SEED in all nations and tongues. They went out in every generation, empowered by the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. At the end of every dispensation, those who heard and received the undiluted WORD were separated and gathered as WHEAT into the bosom of the Lord. But TARES found their way into the told as soon as the men and women who received the SHOWERS were gone, no sooner were they gone, as foretold: “Also of your own selves shall men arise, SPEAKING PERVERSE THINGS, to draw away disciples after them” (Acts 12:30) And as RAIN over famished land, God always remembered His people and poured His Spirit to renew the Church in every age. Regrettably, the same thing happened as TARES crept in and built sects and denominations on the ashes of every REVIVAL. They attach themselves to the vineyard with FALSEHOOD, thrive on DECEPTION and grow into a form of godliness but lacking the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Christ, as WHEAT. The Bible says they have, having “…a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” (2 Timothy 3:5) TARES look so much like WHEAT by all outward appearances, tassles and all, but have not the SEAL and POWER of the Holy Ghost. TARES are planted in the Church but are not born into the family of God by His Spirit. TARES know and venerate their pastors and bishops as lords, but neither know nor are known by Jesus Christ, as the Bible says: “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:8-9) It is all so muddled up today, that no man may justifiably separate WHEAT from TARES, but Christ’s REAPERS are not men but angels (Matthew 13:39) Angels of God are not deceived by riches, fame, title or mantle and see through every mask of false piety. They are already here, searching every heart to gather, first, the TARES, as it is written: “…in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, GATHER ye together first the TARES, and BIND THEM IN BUNDLES to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn” (Matthew 13:30) REAPERS are presently busy all over the world, GATHERING TARES in BUNDLES. Every parish Church that will not endure Present Truth is a BUNDLE tied up in LIES. Every denomination or sect that glorifies tradition over the incorruptible SEED is a BUNDLE of TARES bound together in FALSEHOOD. Finally, smaller BUNDLES are BUNDLED into one monstrous INTERFAITH BUNDLE, ready for burning with fire. Perhaps you want to ask why TARES are gathered first. I will tell you. ONE, to allow more WHEAT to mature and bring forth bountifully. TWO, to give room for CHAFF to be separated from WHEAT. Now that you know about TARES, I plead with you to come out the of BUNDLES before they are set on fire. If you have escaped the BUNDLING, rejoice not yet, but do everything possible not to end up as CHAFF.

4. HARVEST OF THE EARTH is not over until every CHAFF is separated and WHEAT is safely TRANSLATED to be with the Lord. The Lord of HARVEST is determined that His HARVEST is pure, sans CHAFF and “will throughly PURGE HIS FLOOR, and gather his WHEAT into the garner; but he will BURN THE CHAFF with unquenchable fire” (Matthew 3:12) CHAFF is not TARES and is handled differently. Whereas TARES are uprooted and gathered in BUNDLES, CHAFF are separated by THRESHING and WINNOWING to obtain HARVEST of WHEAT without spot or wrinkle (Ephesians 5:27) CHAFF is the tragic end of those who started well, nourished by the OIL OF SALVATION, but ended up famished and dried. They started out with oil and burning lamps but somehow the oil leaked out and the lamp went off. Having tasted the goodness of the Lord and denied Him, there is no repentance for those who go the way of CHAFF.The Bible says: “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame” (Hebrews 6:4-6) The Lord has surveyed and weighed His vineyard. He sees a Church riddled with CHAFF from top to bottom; men and women who were once bubbling with the LIFE of Christ are now LIFELESS. The SALT of the earth are now trodden down on the altar of fame, riches and satanic power. The handwriting is on the wall for all to see, as it is written: “…if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men” (Matthew 5:13) Present distress and uncertainties in all nations is proof that the THRESHING and WINNOWING of the Church has begun in earnest. Multitudes are THRESHED, WINNOWED and blown away daily, from pressure to maintain RIGHT-STANDING with God in perilous times. Those who will not endure fellowship of Christ’s suffering to the end are CHAFF, and the Bible says: “Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them” (Psalms 35:5) If truly you have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, I challenge you to keep your lamp burning and do not allow your oil to run dry. If any man has ears, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church.

5. HARVEST OF THE EARTH is the glorious TRANSLATION of the ELECT CHURCH after TARES are uprooted and CHAFF separated from the WHEAT. WHEAT, that is ELECT CHURCH, is the assembly of men and women who are “born again, not of corruptible seed, but of INCORRUPTIBLE, by the WORD OF GOD, which liveth and abideth for ever” (1 Peter 1:23) ELECT CHURCH is the LITTLE FLOCK that stayed true to the INCORRUPTIBLE WORD in all ages (Luke 12:32) At the end of every move of the Holy Ghost, those who stayed true to REVEALED TRUTH were gathered and sealed as the HARVEST of the age. At the coming of the Lord, those of us alive shall be united with them and shall all be TRANSLATED to be like Him and with Him forever, as it is written: “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 4:17) I bare witness that very soon, the last bunch of TARES shall be BUNDLED with the rest and the tiniest CHAFF blown away. Then, shall the Lord of HARVEST appear in clouds of glory to receive His HARVEST. Beloved, the coming of the Lord is so close. This is not the time to stake your SALVATION on denominational doctrines or tradition. I plead with you to seek the God now when He may still be found and prepare to meet the Lord.

6. Perhaps you are not BORN AGAIN or got caught up in the BUNDLING of TARES, I witness to you that Jesus Christ is God manifest in flesh. The preaching of SALVATION in the NAME of Jesus Christ is the TRUE SEED and WORD of God. Receive Jesus Christ today, as your Lord and Saviour, and stake your claim to ETERNAL GLORY, amen

STEWARDS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

“Let a man so account of us, as of the MINISTERS OF CHRIST, and STEWARDS OF THE MYSTERIES OF GOD. Moreover IT IS REQUIRED IN STEWARDS, THAT A MAN BE FOUND FAITHFUL” [1 Corinthians 4: 1-2]

1. Jesus Christ is God made flesh.
This is the mystery of creation; that God became flesh and lived among us. God prepared a body for himself to do His will [Hebrews 10:5-7] Though the fullness of Godhead dwelt in Him, Jesus humbled himself to perfect divine purpose [Colossians 2:9] He offered Himself a sacrifice for our sins [Hebrews 10:9-14] Jesus Christ came not to be served, but to serve. He became for us, the Steward of our righteousness and salvation. Every soul that comes to Jesus Christ is required to acquire the mind of Christ and be raised as steward of Truth. As it is written:
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth” [Philippians 2:5-10]

2. Stewardship is obedience to God.
Jesus Christ put aside His heavenly glory endured indignities of flesh, in absolute obedience. He was longsuffering and capped obedience in willing submission to death on the cross [John 10: 15—17] Our salvation is therefore not an end, but passage to stewardship in the manner of the Son of God. No one is exempt and every child that comes to the Father must learn obedience through stewardship. The Lord is our perfect example of stewardship, though the Son yet learnt and suffered in the school of obedience. The Bible says:
“Though he were a son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of salvation unto all them that obey him” [Hebrews 5:8-9]

3. Stewards suffer to perfect obedience.
The pains of a steward are the agony of a righteous soul in a wicked world. Lot was a steward in Sodom. His soul was afflicted by what he saw and heard in [2 Peter 2:7] The “suffering” of Lot was not punishment for evil, but the wounds of his battle to remain upright in a decadent society. Likewise, the suffering of Christ was the burden of being a righteous man in a backslidden generation. Every steward is called to fellowship of Christ’s power and suffering. We are His members and stewards if we know Him in truth and live in conformity with His example. As it is written:
“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead” [Philippians 3:10-11]

4. Stewardship is pilgrimage of service.
When Abraham left the city of Ur, he was a steward on pilgrimage [Hebrews 11:8-16] Every son adopted into the family of God is a pilgrim on spiritual odyssey of service. The journey is long and filled with danger. He, who called us, has blessed us with spiritual gifts and blessings in heavenly places for the journey [Ephesians 1: 3] Every steward is accountable for the gift or gifts bestowed on him. We are required to use His spiritual endowments to serve and please the Master and not for personal gain. The Lord gave gifts to all according to His purpose and divine agenda. As the Bible says:
“And he gave some apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of stature of Christ” [Ephesians 4:11]

5. A steward is a minister.
Every man that comes to Christ is required to mature into a minister of Christ’s righteousness. The sons of Levi received goats and rams from Israel to minister at the altar. We have a better sanctuary in Christ, made by God [Hebrews 8:2] We are called by divine mandate as ministers on an altar not made by men. We have no need of bulls and rams. We are equipped by Christ to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God [1 Peter 2:5] Priests in the temple received gifts from men, but Jesus Christ gave us heavenly gifts to minister in His Presence. As it is written:
“But unto everyone is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men” [Ephesians 4:7-8]

6. We are saved to serve.
No servant is above his master [Luke 6:40] We are stewards of Christ and must be like Him. Jesus Christ ministered heavenly riches and was not a treasurer of earthly treasures of silver and gold. We are commissioned to feed His sheep with heavenly bread and meet their material need where necessary. Let every man be mindful how he serves, lest we run foul of the Master. We are called to minister to His lambs not to impoverish them. No steward is superior to another; we all have one master, that is, Jesus Christ. Every steward is bound by service rules set by the Lord. Thus says the Lord:
“But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, …and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes….For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: …” [Luke 12:45-48]

7. Every steward is a servant.
Beloved, we are not heirs of salvation because men call us bishop or prophet. We are accounted as sons of God when we have been tried as stewards, purged of flesh and approved by Christ [James 1:12] We must never forget that we are stewards and not lords over the flocks of Christ. That ministry we cherish so much is by no means personal business; it is God’s heritage [Jeremiah 23:1] Those who rule the household of God with the fist of wickedness and extort the poor have a case to answer at the coming of the Lord. Thus says the Lord:
“Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD. Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD” [Jeremiah 23:1-2]

8. Stewardship is not competition.
We are co-labourers in the vineyard of the Lord. Every steward has his appointed place and hour to fulfill divine purpose. Those who cause divisions and bicker over personal interpretation of scripture are chasing shadows. Divisions breed pride, strife and competition [1 Corinthians 3:4-9] Pride is at the root of denominations and sects. Pride reigns where flesh is not broken and fuels unending strife. Strife provokes divisions and inflames unwholesome competition. Competition in the fold is satanic agenda; we are all baptized to one body. As it is written:
“For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many” [1 Corinthians 12:12-14]

9. Stewardship is Christ in us.
The son is born with DNA of his father. He does not struggle to prove his paternity. When we come to Christ, we are adopted into the family of God and His Spirit dwells in us [1 Corinthians 3:16] Every steward has His Master dwelling in him. God is working in us to will, do and fulfill His purpose [Philippians 2:13] We please God not by intellectual exertions or will power but of His Spirit that dwells in us. Our stewardship is not a death struggle because His seed is in us. If any man ministers without Christ’s seed, he is at best a hireling. A hired hand struggles for material gain and flees his duty post at the least sign of danger. Thus says the Lord: “But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep” [John 10:12-13]

10. Are you a steward or hireling?
Every offering shall be salted with fire [Mark 9:49] Every man or woman that comes to Jesus Christ shall be “salted” by the rules of stewardship. If any man is in the way, let him assess himself, whether he is a hireling or faithful steward. Let every man consider his foundation. Faithful stewards are born of incorruptible word of God and established on sure foundation of apostles and prophets with Christ as Cornerstone [1 Corinthians 10:11; Ephesians 2:20] Beloved, our stewardship shall be examined and made manifest by fire and hirelings shall be put to shame. As it is written:
“Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire” [1 Corinthians 3:13-15]

11. God is not a respecter of persons.
He does not see as men see or judge by sight. God sees and judge by the heart. The thoughts and intents of every steward shall be judged. Nothing is hid from the Lord, who keeps record of secret and hidden things [Revelations 20:12] Men are easily deceived by what they see; large auditorium, huge congregation, wealth, fame, etc. God is not deceived and His judgment is true. God is not mocked by miracles; He is looking for men and women whose hearts are right towards Him. His eyes search the earth; nothing is hid from the Lord. Thus says the Lord:
“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you, depart from me, ye that work iniquity” [Matthew 7:22-23]

12. Jesus Christ is coming.
The Master is coming with His reward. Whatever any man has today is not a reward from the Lord. The reward of His stewards is with Him and He shall give every man according to His work (Revelation 22:12) Beloved, time is far spent, let us put aside selfish interests to seek and serve the Lord, who laid down His life for us [2 Kings 5:26-27] Let us do away with madness and strong delusion of self approval [2 Thessalonians 2:11] This is the time to put aside every weight and fight the good fight of faith. The Bible says:
“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” [Revelation 22:11-13]

FINISHING STRENGTH

1. STRENGTH is effective use of POWER. The rise and fall of nations and civilizations is a POWER EQUATION. The breath in your nostrils is driven by STRENGTH and when it fails you die. When a business loses STRENGTH, it crashes. Failure of any sort is proof of little or no STRNGTH, as the Bible says: “If thou faint in the day of adversity, THY STRENGTH IS SMALL [Proverbs 24:10] This is the ultimate season of adversity as the world staggers from distress to confusion and; “MEN’SHEARTS FAILING THEM FOR FEAR, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” [Luke 21:26] The faithful and faithless are weary and faint in excruciating pains of a world tottering to disaster. Living and enduring FAITH is scarce and many fire-spitting bishops, pastors and disciples are FAINTING and not a few have traded spiritual gifts for material gain. As we turn the last lap of time, those who trust in the Lord gasp for FINISHING STRENGTH to run and obtain the crown of glory. These are perilous times, let him that has ears listen to what the Spirit says: “…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and LET US RUN WITH PATIENCE THE RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE US [Hebrews 12:1]

2. Life on earth is essentially a race to ETERNITY. King Saul started well, got a new HEART and “…the SPIRIT OF GOD CAME UPON HIM, and he prophesied…” [1 Samuel 10: 9-10] He spoke in tongues but that was not enough to FINISH STRONG. Towards the end of his race, he was disconnected from God and sought FINISHING STRENGTH from a witch, saying: “… SEEK ME A WOMAN THAT HATH A FAMILIAR SPIRIT, that I may go to her, and enquire of her…” [1 Samuel 28:7] He FAINTED in the day of adversity’ lost his soul, kingdom and three sons, in one day! [1 Samuel 31:6] The MAN in Christ was exhausted at the tail end of His race and said: “…Father, if thou be willing, REMOE THIS CUP FROM ME: nevertheless NOT MY WILL, BUT THINE, BE DONE [Luke 22:42] Where Saul FAINTED, Jesus Christ held on to God and was refreshed with FINISHING STRENGTH, “And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him” [Luke 22:43] FINISHING STRENGTH to run and apprehend ETERNAL LIFE is in God, and not the property of any man or religious organization. It neither be bought nor transferred from one man to another. FINISHING STRENGTH comes from God and is yours by FAITH in Jesus Christ, to accomplish His purpose according to His vision

3. If you are RUNNING, RUN with PURPOSE. God has a PURPOSE for your life. God’s PURPOSE is a MISSION, separate from personal ambitions or duties assigned by your pastor. It is your assigned place, as a LIVELY STONE in the body of Christ, as it is written: “Ye also, as LIVELY STONES, ARE BUILT UP A SPIRITUAL HOUSE, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ” [1 Peter 2:5] Finding and keeping your location in God’s “SPIRITUAL HOUSE” is the ticket to FINISHING STRENGTH. If any man RUNS outside his God-approved MISSION, he is disconnected from FINISHING STRENGTH. As LIVELY STONES, there is a specific place to be located in Christ, as “…. APOSTLES; and some, PROPHETS; and some, EVANGELISTS; and some, PASTORS and TEACHERS [Ephesians 4:11] Whatever your office, the MISSION is to reflect the true IMAGE and LIKENESS of Jesus Christ. In doing so, let us “offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God” in the manner of Jesus Christ; “…who for the joy that was set before him ENDURED THE CROSS, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” [Hebrews 12:2]

4. RUNNING the RACE without VISION is like a car running at top speed without a driver. God has a VISION for MAN, beginning from the womb, to ETERNITY. God’s VISION is for man to grow and mature into the fulness of the stature of Christ, who is the brightness of the glory of God and; “…the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power…” [Hebrews 1:3 & Ephesians 4:13] Those who RAN before the birth of Jesus Christ did so according to the VISION of Christ received by the prophets. The SAINTS who saw and witnessed His resurrection were blessed, but we shall be GLORIFIED. This generation is the beneficiary of the fullness of God’s VISION, for we shall see the “…SON OF MAN COMING IN THE CLOUDS of heaven with power and great glory” [Matthew 24:30] This is PRESENT TRUTH and a SURE WORD of PROPHECY [2 Peter 1:19] Beloved, it is not enough to RUN, we must RUN in full understanding of the present time and season. Let us RUN, like the; “…children of Issachar, which were men that had UNDERSTANDING OF THE TIMES, to know what Israel ought to do…” [1Chronicles 12:32] Let us RUN as men who know that the Lord will return “AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT” [1 Thessalonians 5:2]

5. This generation is the LUKEWARM Church, that says: “… I AM RICH, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that THOU ART WRETCHED, and MISERABLE, and POOR, and BLIND, and NAKED [Revelation 3:17] At a time like this, if you are RUNNING to apprehend the true riches of Christ, you need FINISHING STRENGTH. The race has been long and many are FAINTING, but God has promised His STRENGTH for the last days, as it is written: “And it shall come to pass IN THE LAST DAYS, saith God, I WILL POUR MY SPIRIT UPON ALL FLESH …” [Acts 2:17] The outpouring of the HOLY Ghost is our FINISHING STRENGTH, through which the GOSPEL shall be preached “…in all the world for A WITNESS UNTO ALL NATIONS; and THEN SHALL THE END COME [Matthew 24:14] Brethren, the GOSPEL is preached in divers forms in all nations, not the least electronically and the appearance of the Lord is imminent. Let us RUN the last leg of the RACE in the VISION of PRESENT TRUTH, turning away from crass materialism, to WAIT on the Lord in SPIRIT and in TRUTH, for they that wait upon the LORD shall RENEW THEIR STRENGTH; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; THEY SHALL RUN, AND NOT BE WEARY; and they shall walk, and not faint:” [Isaiah 40:31] When we have been purged, we shall be revived by the power of the Holy Ghost and the Lord; “… WILL FINISH THE WORK, and CUT IT SHORT IN RIGHTEOUSNESS: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth” [Roman 9:28]

6. If you are not BORN AGAIN, the door of SALVATION is open. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and RUN the RACE set before you in the POWER of the HOLY Ghost, amen

LOOK UP

LOOK UP

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then Look up, and lift up your
heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:28)

1. There are three general classes of people on earth.
I can tell the three categories by the direction of their eyes. The first group looks down on the earth. The second set looks around. The third class looks up. This classification applies to all affairs of life. In the corporate world it is known as target audience. In warfare it is battle objective. In the Christian race, It is the prescribed format for running to victory, as it is written: “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” [Hebrews 12:2]

2. Looking down is rebellion against God.
The man that looks down blames God for his shortcomings and failure. His head is down, overtaken by dark clouds of defeat, shame and sorrow. The world is full of people looking down and in anger against God, overwhelmed by terror, poverty, sickness, war, social decadence, etc. Whatever you are passing through, rebellion against God is the last thing you want to do. Before you bury your head in confusion, remember that Satan is right down there waiting for you. The Bible says: “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 man that looks down adds destruction to his calamity.

3. Looking down is not a solution.
Looking down is one-way route to destruction. This generation is bedeviled by multitudes running the steep slope to perdition. The economy is bad, nature is gone is crazy and a rash of unknown diseases torment the world leading many to look down and cling to alcohol, drugs, spiritism, false religion, hedonism, etc. This is the broad way, glamorous and acceptable to the doomed. It is the way of the world and the end is eternal separation from God, as it is written: “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat” [Matthew 7:13]

4. Looking around is fool’s paradise.
Those who look around spend their times in fool’s paradise. They bend backwards to be religiously, socially and politically correct, glossing over canons of God’s righteousness and faith. We have them in religious leaders and flocks who justify themselves by themselves. They have best ratings with men and zero score with God. To such folks, the Bible says: “…Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God” [Luke 16:15] God is not fooled by long robes and pretentious prayers, as It is written: “For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise” [2 Corinthians 10:12]

5. Look up.
Looking up is sign of submission to God Almighty and His Son Jesus Christ. I tell you, as the day goes by things are going to go from bad to worse. The economy will soon go bust. There shall be more wars and terror all over the globe. The Bible says: “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; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” [Luke 21:25-26] The hearts of men are failing and many are turning to looking down and around. I tell you Look up to Jesus

6. Look up, Jesus Christ is coming.
He is coming to put an end to the groaning and suffering in the world. Those who look up to Him, like the fiery serpent in the wilderness shall be delivered from this dying world. The children of Israel were in anguish in the wilderness, bitten and tormented by snakes, and God said to Moses: “…Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live” [Numbers 21:8] Look up to Jesus Christ, accept Him as your Lord and Saviour and receive strength to do exploits, as it is written: “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits” [Daniel 11:32]

WHERE ARE THE PROPHETS?

No man or nation is exempt from present sorrows of this dying world, as the Bible says: “…the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now” [Romans 8:22] The fabrics of society are crumbling and families shattered like glass against a rock. Rulers and governments are perplexed by failing economies, social disorder, terror and rising wave of unprecedented natural disasters. The stability of heavenly kingdoms is disturbed and prophecy is fulfilled, as it is written: “…but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven” [Hebrews 12:26] Bottomless pits are broken and their prisoners escaped to afflict the earth with unparalleled horror. There is no end to growing tribulation and confusion, with: “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth…” [Luke 21:26] Those who trust in the appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ ache and sigh in pains, “…earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven” [2 Corinthians 5:2] The Saints daily ask one another; when shall these things be and where are the prophets?

2. Where are the prophets?
The RIGHTEOUS ask, “WHERE ARE THE PROPHETS? The simple-minded, retort; “WHY ASK FOR PROPHETS in the 21st century of a technology driven civilization?” The answer is simple; man and his civilizations have pushed the world to the edge of mutually assured destruction. United Nations, super powers and international peace accords are a ruse because; “…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” [1 Thessalonians 5:3] As the nations rush headlong to collective annihilation, God is primed to translate those who trust in Him to a new earth and new heavens and the SOLUTION is in PROPHECY and the PROPHETS [Revelation 21:1] The MYSTERY of all time is coming to pass in our time, beginning with the return of Jews to the Promised Land. A greater Exodus than the one that brought Israel out of Egypt is about to take place, when the BRIDE shall be TRANSLATED, in the twinkling of an eye to heavenly glory. Israel was led by a PROPHET out of Egypt and so shall the ELECT, as it is written: “And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved” [Hosea 12:13] God has prepared and revealed his secrets unto his servants the prophets [Amos 3:7] In the midst of mounting tribulation we shall be made ready by prophets of the Most High; “…to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” [1 Thessalonians 4:17] Alas, where are the prophets?

3. Where are the prophets?
Prophets are ordained by God in classes for specific assignments, as it is written: “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations” [Jeremiah 1:5] There are also man-made prophets who see vanity and speak lies, saying: “…Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken” [Ezekiel 22:28] Many lives are daily destroyed by magicians, seers and diviners dressed as prophets, “…after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders” [2 Thessalonians 2:9] A seer operates a spiritual gift but is not a prophet. Magicians and diviners work with familiar spirits for material gain. Prophets are the mouthpiece of God, established to declare, confirm and activate prophetic agenda. Every prophet is approved by testimony of Jesus Christ and not by wealth or title, as it is written: “…the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” [Revelation 19:10] God-sent prophets are sealed by prophetic revelation of birth, death and coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Where are the prophets proclaiming prophetic mysteries of Jesus Christ?

4. Where are the prophets?
There is a special order of prophets for this generation; “…upon whom the ends of the world are come” [1Corintians 10:11] The army of Elijah prophets are reserved for the last days, as it is written: “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse [Malachi 4:5-6] John, the Baptist, came in the spirit of Elijah and turned the hearts of the “fathers” to the children. The “dreadful day of the LORD” is here. The heart of the children shall be turned to the “fathers” by “fire” as a refiner purges gold. The Saints shall be sanctified by the message of Elijah prophets and cleansed by; “…the washing of water by the word” [Ephesians 5:26] Elijah prophets shall purge the Church with the fire of Truth to seal “wise virgins”. The “little flock” and their shepherds shall be hated and persecuted by the world and organized religion; “…but he that endureth to the end shall be saved” [Matthew 10:22] The present tide of harassment and intimidation of Christ’s followers is the tip of the iceberg. As the world staggers in confusion, faithful men and women whisper to one another; where are the Elijah prophets?

5. Where are the prophets?
Some are hiding in plush parish “caves” fed by men as in the days of Obadiah, who took; “…an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water” [1 Kings 18:4] Many voices that spoke with passion in the past have turned back to settle for; “…bread and drunk water in the place, of the which the LORD did say to thee, Eat no bread, and drink no water…” [1 Kings 13:22] Those who left their duty post to receive fame and wealth are lepers before the Lord and like Gehazi, executive storytellers in the courts of their paymasters [2 Kings 8:4-5] Beloved, the army of Elijah prophets is here. They are not “temple priests” and do not go from house to parish in quest of tithes and offerings. Elijah prophets do not “serve tables” but committed; “…to prayer, and to the ministry of the word” [Acts 6:4] You will find them when you earnestly seek Christ and separate your faith from hypocrisy of organized religion. Let those who have ears hear as the Spirit say: “…Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” [Revelation 18:4] God bless you, 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.
