The Appointments and Consecrations of Popes

As the spate of uncertainty continues in the then Roman Empire, which makes Henry Moss to succinctly state even so it is very important to remember that in the eyes of the contemporaries the Roman Empire was still one and indivisible. He adds it would have been considered as falsehood the idea at that time to speak of either Eastern and or Western empire because the two blocs were still thought of as “the Eastern, or Western part (partes orinteis vel occidentis).  Therefore, Rome has to devise a means to stabilize the administration of the whole empire by tightening her grip on the Vatican City and to that extent, the entire Christendom. First, it is to have a firm grip on the Christendom that makes the Emperor Constantine whose profession of being a Christian is highly debatable not only to decriminalize Christian worship but to make Christianity a Roman State Religion. Secondly, it is the same reason that brings Pope Gregory 1 the Great into the equation. The Good News Bible provided a background revelation to the intrigues surrounding appointments and consecrations of Popes in the Vatican City, when it records that Saint John in the Book of Revelation reveals he saw another beast coming up out of the earth, which has two horns like the horns of a lamb and or candor of the Lord Jesus Christ that speaks like a dragon, Lucifer the Devil.

Continuing, our working Bible highlights, “It used the vast authority of the first beast in its presence. It forced the earth and all who live on it to worship the first beast, whose wound had healed.  The second beast performed great miracles: it made fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the sight of everyone.  And it deceived all the people living on earth by means of the miracles which it was allowed to perform in the presence of the first beast.  The beast told them to build an image in honor of the beast that had been wounded by the sword and yet lived.  The second beast was allowed to breathe life into the image of the first beast, so that the image could talk and put to death all those who would not worship it. The beast forced all the people, small and great, rich and poor, slave and free, to have a mark placed on their right hands or on their foreheads.  No one could buy or sell unless he had this mark, that is, the beast’s name or the number that stands for the name.  This calls for wisdom.  Whoever is intelligent can work out the meaning of the number of the beast, because the number stands for a man’s name.  Its number is 666.”  Rev. 13: 11-18.

You will recall Cross of Calvary Foundation – ccfn Inc has already highlights among others that for the purposes of this exercise that she shall concentrate on the emperors that reined within 14 AD through to 590 AD because the period marks an inglorious era in the history of the Christendom in general and the Vatican City in particular.  Inglorious in the sense that it marks the beginning of the control of the Vatican and to a large extent the entire Christendom by the successive Roman Emperors by means of a promulgated Dogma and or Catholicism, which Tim Stanley recently reports in an article in the Telegraph Media Group Limited 2016 that not even His Holiness, Pope Francis has the power to change.

The Wikipedia in a subtitle, antichrist, another name for Man of Sin associated with Prophet Daniel’s “Little Horn” and Saint John’s Beast (Rev. 13), under the broad title, Catholicism, sought to apply other expressions to the antichrist such as “the abomination of desolation,” mentioned by Christ (Matt. 24: 15), the “king of a most fierce countenance,” in Gabriel’s explanation of the Little Horn of Daniel 8.  He adds Irenaeus was not very clear how “the sacrifice and the libation shall be taken away” during the “half-week,” or three and one-half years of the reign of the antichrist.

Among others and most importantly, the free encyclopedia avows Irenaeus is the first of the Church fathers to consider the mystic number “666.”  It records while the Church father, Irenaeus, profiles some solutions to unravel the mystical number “666” but that his interpretation was very much reserved. That cautiously, the Church father writes “but knowing the sure number declared by Scripture that is six hundred and six, let them await, in the first place, for the division of the kingdom into ten, then, in the next place, when those kings are reigning and beginning to set their affairs in order, and advance their kingdom into ten [let them learn] to acknowledge that he who shall come claiming the kingdom for himself and shall terrify those men of whom we have been speaking, have a name containing the aforesaid number, namely, is truly the abomination of the desolation.”  Adding although the Church father did speculates “upon three names to symbolize the mystical number, namely Euanthas, Teitan and Lateinos, however, were satisfied with the belief that the antichrist would arise in the future.”  He adds the antichrist shall arise after the fall of “Rome” and then the meaning of the number “666” as you are about to witness shall be revealed.

To a little bit expatiate on the Church father, Irenaeus’ profiles to unravel the mystical number “666” but that we read his interpretation was very much reserved, we crave your indulgence to define the word antichrist.  Defining it, one of our working data, 21st Century Dictionary, defines antichrist as an opponent of Christ and or the great opponent of Christ and Christianity, which the early Church expects to apply to the Pope.  Therefore, falling back to his advice that “let them learn” what the “Ten Horns of the Beast” are, kindly study the title, The Christianity and Catholicism to know more about the various ten horns, which are crowns or dynasties and the seven heads that constitute the frame-works, as slightly amended about fifty years ago within which any reigning emperor or pope rules, which His Holiness, Pope Francis recently commemorated. As was earlier pointed out, it is noteworthy to find that not all the Seven Ecumenical Councils are universally recognized as ecumenical.  We found the Church of the East accepts only the first two while the Oriental Orthodoxy accepts only three.  While Montrinitarian, such as Oneness Pentecostals, Unitarians, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Quakers, Christadelphians and Jehovah’s Witnesses reject the teachings of all the Seven Councils.

JESUS CHRIST AND THE LAW OF TITHE 2

It is most interesting that it is Prophet Mohammed the Great that the Almighty God uses to preserve the then Jewish High Priest Caiaphas’ First and Second Reports on the Crucifixion and execution of the Lord Jesus Christ to the Sanhedrin in a Mosque in Constantinople, Istanbul – Turkey.  As the Reports have been fully rendered in The GODHEAD & Humanity (Total Freedom from Spiritual Enslavement) Volume 1 (ISBN 13: 978-1530002573 & ISBN 10: 1530002575) written by Paul Omo Umane, we shall only recall the relevant extract here as slightly amended,

“The Lord Jesus Christ and the Jewish Temple:  We submit that the Almighty God is more interested in the Joint-heirs with the Christ who are now the temples of the Living God than the so-called magnificent Solomon’s Temple or any other temples or churches for that matter.   In lamentation, Caiaphas avows, “He entirely ignores God’s holy temple – the house God had built by our ancestors under His own supervision, where He promised to dwell with His children, to hear their prayers, and to be pleased with their sacrifices. This temple is the bond of the Jews.  Here all men can come and be blessed. It is the earthly home of the souls of men – the place where men may hide from the storms of sin and persecution.  This temple is where the foolish may learn wisdom, the place where the naked soul can be clothed, and where the hungry may be fed.  This grandest gift of our Father Jesus completely ignores this temple; says, ‘the priests have made it a den of thieves (See Luke 19: 45-48) And sets up a sneer, and even scoffs at its sacred ordinances, and with a sort of selfish triumph says it shall be destroyed; and from his manner of saying it, I have no doubt he would be glad to see it quickly done.  However, what would be the condition of our people if this temple were removed?  What would be the use of the priesthood if the temple were destroyed? Where would we find an answer by Urim and Thummin?  How would the soul of man be purified, if the holy Bathkole, the Euroch of God, should depart? There in that sacred temple of God he has been burning to the consuming of sin and the purifying of the heart since our return from bondage in Babylon. My argument is, if this temple is destroyed, or even forsaken by the Jews, we as a nation are utterly ruined.  We might as well put our necks under the feet of idolatry and give up all hope.  (Take judicious note that the Temple was completely destroyed in the year 70 AD by the Romans!)

The High Priest’s Misunderstanding about the Christ:  That the High Priests and indeed the entire members of the Jewish authorities misunderstood the teachings of the New Covenant of Grace of the Son of God the Messiah is another understatement.  The misunderstanding is accountable to why he writes, “He had already inculcated into the Jewish mind his pernicious ways of being saved to that extent that the Jewish cause was almost lost. There are two reasons for this.  First, the people to whom he preached were an ignorant pet, and knew but very little about doctrine of any kind.  They are a restless sort of men, who are always finding fault and wanting something new, and never associate with the more enlightened part of the community in order to learn. Another reason of his having many followers is his doctrines are congenial to unsanctified flesh. They are so suited to human nature that they require no sacrifices; they need not go to the temple to worship God; they need not fast, and they can when and where they please; they need pay no tithes to keep up the temple or the priesthood, but every man can be his own priest and worship God as he chooses. …” (Emphasis ours)

Paul Omo Umane once again quotes the Jewish High Priest Caiaphas’ Second Report to the Sanhedrin as stated below,

“The High Priest Second Report to the Sanhedrin:  That it is most interesting to see or read how events fly.  With all the venom the Jewish High Priest Caiaphas poured on the Lord Jesus Christ whom he calls an impostor but in the Second Report he writes to the same Sanhedrin after his personal encounter with the resurrected Christ, and thoroughly purged himself of all the charges he had levied against the Son of God and rewrites another Report.  It reads, “To you, Masters of Israel.  As I have made a former defense to you, and you have approved the same, I feel in duty bound to communicate to you some facts that have come to my knowledge since that communication. A few days after the execution of Jesus of Nazareth, the report of his resurrection from the dead became so common that I found it necessary to investigate it, because the excitement was more intense than before, and my own life as well as that of Pilate was in danger.  I sent for Malkus, the captain of the royal city guard, who informed me he knew nothing personally, as he had placed Isham in command of the guard, but from what he could learn from the soldiers the scene was awe-inspiring, and the report was so generally believed that it was useless to deny it. He thought my only chance was to suppress it (as usual) among the soldiers, and have John and Peter banished to Crete, or arrested and imprisoned and if they would not be quiet, to treat them as I had treated Jesus.  He said that all the soldiers he had conversed with were convinced that Jesus resurrected by supernatural power and was still living and that he was no human being; for the light and the angels and the dead that came out of their graves all went to prove that something had happened that never occurred on earth before. He said that John and Peter were spreading it all over the country; and that if Jesus would appear at the head of a host, and declare for the king of the Jews, he believed all the Jews would fight for him.”  (Emphasis ours).

The High Priest’s conviction that Jesus is the Christ:  On very descript investigation the High Priest became thoroughly convinced beyond all reasonable doubts that the Lord Jesus Christ is Messiah the Son of God.  How did we arrive at that conclusion, well, you may as read this, “I sent for the lieutenant, who gave a lengthy account of the occurrence that morning, all of which I suppose you have learned, and will investigate. From this I am convinced that something transcending the laws of nature took place that morning that cannot be accounted for upon natural laws and I find it is useless to try to get any of the soldiers to deny it; for they are so excited that they cannot be reasoned with.  I regret that I had the soldiers placed at the tomb, for the very things that they were to prevent, they have helped to establish.  After questioning the soldiers and officers to my satisfaction, my mind being so disturbed that, I could neither eat nor sleep.” (Emphasis ours).

“Appointment of Jonathan as the High Priests:  At the resignation of the High Priest and instead of the complete gentleman’s gesture of the High Priest to spoon his colleagues, we mean, members of the Sanhedrin into remorse and repentance for what they had done to the Lord Jesus Christ, they unfortunately decided to have an obstinacy drive by appointing a new High Priest.

Kindly hear the working data out, “Therefore, you will appoint Jonathan or someone, to fill the holy place (Office of the High Priest.) We found that, soon after, Jonathan became high priest, though history teaches us differently – Mahan.  (Sanhedrin, 89.  By Siphri 11, 7)” Report of Caiaphas to the Sanhedrin – Concerning the Resurrection of Jesus.

Arising thereto, we wish to categorically state under the present dispensation of Grace that the blessings of the Almighty God on the believers are no longer predicated on payments of tithe and first-fruits offerings.  Rather, the blessings are contingent upon how well a believer is able carryout the heartbeat assignment of the Christ, which is for one to win souls to our Kingdom, the Christendom, where Jesus Christ is the King.  The Christ adds when such a one wins souls and also goes ahead to wean them that as a matter of compulsion, he or she should ask for anything in his name that it shall stand granted.

In conclusion, we earnestly and passionately appeal to the Spiritual Leaderships, whether we have been right or wrong, to let us bury the hatchets and to join hands together to advance the cause of our own Kingdom here on the planet earth, the Christendom, where the Lord Jesus Christ is the King. Let’s us please arise to be counted among the living!

Thank you and God bless.

 

 

JESUS CHRIST AND THE LAW OF TITHE

Beloved, we are most especially addressing the Spiritual Leaderships the world over in this title christened, Jesus Christ and the Law of Tithe.  In our very humble estimation, it is not wrong to be wrong but it is absolutely wrong for one to know one is wrong and for one to remain in the wrong.

Before we delve into the issue of the beast with ten horns and seven heads, we sincerely wish to state with utmost respect and sincerity to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that we are not unaware many Church Leaders in the contemporary Christendom worldwide know the undiluted message of the tenet of the New Covenant of Grace.   However, like we stated elsewhere, because of the spirit of materialism that creeps into the Church and or their fears they might lose grip of the very lucrative tithe and first-fruits offering collections, which they currently enjoy that they found it extremely difficult to embrace the truth about the Good News gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The root cause of the materialism that bestrides the entire Christendom is the twisted version of the law of tithe embedded in the Book of Deuteronomy enshrined in the Old Testament Bible that simply stipulates,

“Set aside a tithe – a tenth of all that your fields produce each year.  Then go to one place where the LORD your God has chosen to be worshipped; and there in his presence eat the tithes of your corn, wine, and olive-oil, and the first-born of your cattle and sheep.  Do this so that you may learn to honor the LORD your God always.  If the place of worship is too far from your home for you to carry there the tithe of your produce that the LORD has blessed you with, then do this: sell your produce and take the money with you to the one place of worship.  Spend it on whatever you want – beef, lamb, wine, beer – and there, in the presence of the LORD your God, you and your families are to eat and enjoy yourselves.

Do not neglect the Levites (equivalent of the contemporary Church Leaderships) who live in your towns: they have no property of their own (really?  What of the chains of property owned by Church Leaderships today?)  At the end of every third year (as against the ritual of daily collection of tithes) bring the tithe of all your crops and store it in your towns.  This food is for the Levites, since they own no property, and for the foreigners, orphans, and widows who live in your towns.  They are to come and get all they need.  Do this, and the LORD your God will bless you in everything you do.”  Deut. 14: 22 – 29.

Now, if our highly esteemed Spiritual Leaderships maintain the Abrahamic Old Covenant of Promise and the Law of Moses have not yet been annulled, abolished and or fulfilled in Christ Jesus and that we are still expecting the Messiah like the Jewish counterpart, therefore, they should endeavor to strictly adhere to the spirit and letter of the above highlighted law embedded in the Old Testament Bible.  It is mandatory for them to adhere to the law because even the greatest proponent of Judaic-Christianity, the Apostle James declares, “… Whoever breaks one commandment is guilty of breaking them all.  For the same one who said, ‘Do not commit adultery,’ also said, ‘Do not commit murder.’  Even if you do not commit adultery, you have become a law-breaker if you commit murder.  Speak and act as people who will be judge by the law that sets us free.  For God will not show mercy when he judges the person who has not been merciful; but mercy triumphs over judgment.”  James 2: 8-13.

As if to counter the Apostle James’ averment, Apostle Paul the Great in what the Good News Bible titles, Preserve Your Freedom, vibrates, “Freedom is what we have – Christ has set us free!  Stand, then, as free people, and do not allow yourselves to become slaves again (slaves to the Abrahamic Old Covenant of Promise, the Law of Moses and its attendant Ordinances). Listen!  I, Paul, tell you that if you allow yourselves to be circumcised, it means that Christ is of no use to you at all.  Once more I warn any man who allows himself to be circumcised that he is obliged to obey the whole Law.

Those of you who try to be put right with God by obeying the Law have cut yourselves off from Christ.  You are outside God grace.

As for us (born-again and not Judaic-Christians) our hope is that God will put us right with him; and this is what we wait for by the power of God’s Spirit working through our faith. For when we are in union with Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor lack of it makes any difference at all; what matters is faith that works through love.” Galatians 5: 1-6.

The very pertinent question that will naturally agitate one’s mind is if in a bid for one to obey the Abrahamic  Old Covenant of Promise and the Law of Moses and or the highly adulterated Apostle James’ pattern of the New Covenant of Grace, which is referred to by his elder brother, the Lord Jesus Christ, as “The Awful Horror” prophet Daniel spoke (Matthew 24:15-28), one cuts off oneself from the Christ and the tenet of the New Covenant of Grace, where does that lead one?  Well, all we can simply say is God forbids that one should be cut off from the Christ and be outside the Grace of the Almighty God!  To put paid to the argument that might arise as to who is right or wrong between the Apostles James and Paul, the Jewish High Priest who presides over the mock trial of the Son of God and his First and Second Reports to the Sanhedrin on the mock trial, execution and resurrection of Jesus Christ come in handy.
