Evil spirits in human form Prayer is a ladder to God. Therefore, I am hundred percent in support of people converging in the church to pray and sing together. Do you want to decree something positive to take place in your life? Decrees are more effective when done in the church than doing it on your own.
Remember, the children of Israel brought down the walls of Jericho by a great shout. Therefore, it is good for Christians to converge in the church and worship the living God. However, it is sad to note, we are witnessing the rise of churchianity instead of Christianity, in many modern churches.
Of a truth, I tell you, the rise of churchianity is a crystal clear indication that despite the prayerful nature of many Christians. The fallen angels, known as the watchers, who invaded the early churches are still present and very active in most modern churches.
I hope most of you still remember that Jacob wrestled with an angel whom he was able to touch with his hands. The angel said to Jacob let me go for the day breaks.
Genesis 32:24-26. Then Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day. Now when he saw that he did not prevail against him, he touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob’s hip was out of joint as he wrestled with him. And he said, “Let me go, for the day breaks.”
The author of the book of Genesis calls him a man but actually, it was an angel. In Judges 13:16, an angel appeared as an ordinary human being to Manoah. To the astonishment of Manoah, his guest ascended to heaven in the fire he had lit to prepare dinner for him. That was how Manoah realized that his guest was an angel and not a human being.
Judges 13:16 and the of the unto though thou detain me, I will not of thy bread: and if thou wilt offer a burnt offering, thou must offer it unto the lord. For Manoah knew not that he was an angel of the Lord.
My brother man and sister woman, in ancient times, angels often appeared in human forms to interact with human beings on planet earth. If the angels of God can assume human forms, evil spirits can equally do the same just as pharaoh’s magicians did the same magical performance done by Moses and Aaron.
Remember, Moses and Aaron, performed magical arts to confirm their message was coming directly from God. On three occasions, pharaoh’s magicians were able to duplicate their miracles. Given the state of affairs in Nigerian churches and churches around the world given the state of affairs in Nigeria and other countries in the world today, you will know that the forces of darkness are with us today in positions of power in the church and in government.
The forces of darkness influence highly placed, evil-minded, and selfish government officials to manipulate government policies and mismanage our economy. The fallen angels have continued to cloth themselves in human forms so that they can gradually destroy our civilization our religions and if they could the souls of every human being on planet earth.
It is in the church environment you will find wolves in sheep’s clothing, the false Christ’s and the false prophets against whom the master Jesus warned.
Churchianity versus Christianity.
The Christ has been in existence from the foundation of the world. The Christ manifested on planet earth, through the pure body of the master Jesus, to lay a solid foundation for the Christian religion. After accomplishing his divine mission on planet earth the master Jesus died, resurrected and ascended into the heavens, where he still remains a living force to reckon with even to the end of the world.
Sadly, the majority of the churches today are a poor representation of what their founder meant it to be. In society, we are witnessing the irrepressible rise of Churchianity and not Christianity. Churchianity is all about
Self-righteousness, sectarianism, and dogma. Churchianity is all about I alone know what is good for you and no one else.
Churchianity is all about praying to God in the name of the general overseer of your church. Churchianity is all about laying emphasis on the payment of tithe which was borrowed from paganism. The earliest church fathers did not want the old testament to be a part of the holy bible because it contains more examples of pagan doctrine than any other book in the world.
With the Old Testament containing, more examples of pagan doctrine, it appears Christianity, has borrowed more from paganism, than paganism from Christianity. In ancient times, pagans indulged in, payment of tithe, they forbade sister women from the role of the priesthood, because they were looked upon as inferior creatures. Pagans indulged in, circumcision of the flesh, atonement for sin, water baptism, once for life, imbibition of strong drink etc.
It is obvious, Christianity borrowed more from paganism, than paganism from Christianity. Churchianity has to do with pastors, coming in their own names, coming with their own strategies, and the ignorant masses, are ever ready, to hysterically receive them and publicly defend, the ungodly and odious activities, of these ungodly pastors. Genuine pastors that come in the name of our heavenly father have been relegated to the back.
John 5:43: i have come in my father’s name, and you do not receive me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.
Quite revealing. Most Nigerians will receive general overseers that comes in their own names. Is your faith, in your general overseer? or in God? What makes you think that your General Overseer is a holy being, therefore incapable of human errors? Why do you derive pleasure, in the idolization of your pastor? We are surrounded by megachurches in Nigeria.
Most of these fast-growing, successful and popular megachurches are filled with ignorant and gullible Nigerians. In this era of bigotry and brainwashing, most Christians attending these modern churches, implicitly allow their pastors, most of them without formal education, to do their thinking for them.
I know one thing and that is, the multi-billion naira church business, taking place in Nigeria and all over the world, would soon experience, severe reversal of fortune, if many Christians, would only take their time, to think for themselves instead of letting their pastors do their thinking for them.
Churches competing with each other: Most modern churches in Nigeria engage in scandalous insults and Self-righteousness. They trenchantly indulge in commercialism. They enter into a vicious competition with each other to become number one. Most of their general overseers involve themselves in corrupt politics and use their self-ordained powers to corrupt the minds of their followers on whom to vote for and whom not to vote for.
In the end, most of their political predictions will amount to nothing and the masses will continue to remain in bondage and abject poverty. The master Jesus told mankind to love one another. What does that mean? it means we must tolerate and respect each other. It means we must love each other and not to hate or compete with one another. Love one another means you cannot hate another person because he is not a Christian or does not believe as you believe.
Genuine Christian worship Remember the averment of the master Jesus, many will come but few will be chosen. In society, churchgoers are more numerous than genuine practical Christians. If genuine practical Christians were more numerous than churchgoers, lovers of prosperity, signs and wonders, the Nigerian society would have been much better than the way it is right now.
Megachurches are always filled with churchgoers, lovers of prosperity, signs, and wonders. Megachurches do not represent the true Disciples of Christ. Christianity is not a democratic form of government where the majority triumph over the minority. Pure Christian worship wasn’t popular in any time of the human race not even in the era of the master Jesus and certainly not in the twenty-first century.
Under normal circumstances, a true Christian church will never be able to boast a huge membership when juxtaposed with megachurches. I want you to bear in mind, only a few Christians in society, genuinely indulge in pure worship. The majority of Christians, are merely churchgoers and adherents of churchanity.
The kingdom of God is within your soul: Remember the master Jesus told his disciple, know that you are gods. Also, he said, not lo here, not lo there, the kingdom of God is within you. Quite revealing. My brother man and sister woman, the godhead, lies within each of us, yearning for the truth and righteousness. Every brother man and sister woman alive today, has the kingdom of God, within his or her soul.
It is your responsibility, to strive to realize this fact, and truly and sincerely believe in it. Your general overseer, your Daddy in the Lord cannot do it for you. It is you and you only that can make it happen. You hear?
