Is this the Christianity of Jesus?
Christians have been teaching the message of Jesus for 2000 years, yet the world keeps getting worse. Panic, fear, suspicion, conflicts, terrorism, wars and broken families continue to increase the world over, and religion is the major cause of these. It is time we had some sober reflections on the role of the Church in all these.
The Christ message is Abused, Reduced and Misused and generations continue to be misled and lost. Christianity has by and large become a miracle business and a podium for get-rich-quick cons and charlatans, doomsday preachers and simpletons who are either ignorant of, or have disregarded the true teachings of Jesus.
The Church has become largely Anti-Christ! You have a duty to wake up to the Truth and enlighten the world around you
Who is the Anti-Christ?
Jesus said: “Whoever is not with me is against me (Antichrist), and whoever does not gather with me scatters.” Matthew 12:30. Any person, group or church that does not follow the mission and teachings of Christ Jesus or does the opposite is Antichrist. Check where you belong!
Christ Mission 1: Divine Empowerment
Jesus lived and died to make you aware that you are divine and that your divine nature is available to you even now. The Bible affirms this in the following:
We were created in God’s Spiritual image and likeness and blessed to expand and express the qualities of God. Genesis 1:26-28.
We fell from that grace of full God expression by yielding to the persuasions of the senses instead of the spirit within and this is allegorically expressed in the book of Genesis. Genesis 3: 1-17.
Salvation, therefore, is to restore you to your original status as the image and likeness of God. John 10:30-34
Jesus started his ministry with the teaching that you must repent your old ways of thinking and being, for “The Kingdom of God” is within your reach. Matthew 4:17.
The first request in the master prayer that Jesus taught, The Lord’s Prayer, is “Thy Kingdom Come!” Matthew 6:10.
Jesus taught that your Primary Purpose must be: “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness…” Matthew 6:33.
To the obvious question by the Pharisees when the Kingdom would come, Jesus answered “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’[a] For indeed, The Kingdom of God is WITHIN You.” Luke 17:20-21 KJV or NKJV.
“The Kingdom is WITHIN you” is the greatest empowerment message in the world and the Anti-Christ will not want you know it, hence the churches do not teach it. Also, there is a systematic attempt by “the Powers that be” to disempower and spiritually disenfranchise you by removing it from the Bible.
For example, the same verse in the New American Standard Bible and in the New American Bible (Revised edition), which are designed to replace the King James Version and the New King James Versions state thus: “Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he said in reply, “The coming of the kingdom of God cannot be observed, and no one will announce, ‘Look, here it is,’ or, ‘There it is.’ For behold, the kingdom of God is among you.”
The kingdom of God is WITHIN you has changed to the kingdom of God is among you. This subtle twist is to infer that Jesus was referring to himself as the Kingdom of God. But the verse 20 to 21a had clearly stated that: “The coming of the kingdom of God cannot be observed, and no one will announce, ‘Look, here it is,’ or, ‘There it is.’ And common sense teaches that the fruits of the Kingdom, such as love, joy, peace and wisdom all come from within you.
If your church does not teach you that the Kingdom of God is within you and cannot provide you with the keys to gain access to it, then it is Anti-Christ.
If the King and His Kingdom is within you, then you and the King are one; and when Jesus taught that, they took up stones to kill him. Again, he reminded them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”? John 10:30-34.
The “Kingdom within” as Jesus’ cardinal teaching gave the Jews the reason to crucify him because it was blasphemy punishable by death to make such a claim. Mat 26:59-66). Hence, the death of Jesus is meaningless if you do not stand up for what he died for.
The Anti-Christ: We see the Antichrist churches teaching you to just mention the name of Jesus in order to gain entry into God’s Kingdom rather than his practical approach of taking up your cross and following him. (Mark 8:34; Mat 7:21-23).
Christ Mission 2: Oneness of Life
Every parent’s greatest desire is to see unity among their children. God, the Ultimate Parent, desires the same for humanity; and thus the second mission of Jesus. He taught and demonstrated the oneness of humanity, irrespective of race, creed or culture.
The second request in the master prayer is, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Jesus taught: Not those who say Lord, Lord or do miracles in the name of Jesus but those who do the will of God. Matthew 7: 21-23.
Asked what is the primary will or law of God, Jesus made the declaration of Oneness saying, “hear oh Israel the Lord our God is one God.” And he quickly added, “and you shall love God with all of your heart and might and your neighbour as yourself.” (Mark 12:29-31). To love a neighbour as yourself is to be in oneness with him or her.
Asked who a neighbour was, Jesus gave the story of “The Good Samaritan” to teach us to love the follower of another religion and culture as ourselves. (Luke 10:29-37).
Enmity 2000 years ago was real enmity and Jews and Samarians were arch enemies due to religious and cultural differences. John 4: 9. Jesus prescribed a new way of living that you have to love the enemy, bless those who curse you and pray for the good of those who persecute and misuse you. That is what qualifies you as a child of God; for a child of God makes peace and does not curse or pray against witches using the blood of Jesus. In fact, while Jesus was shedding his blood, he was praying that the father should forgive his executioners. Matthew 5: 43-45.
Jesus demonstrated oneness beyond boundaries when he visited the land of the Samaritans who belonged to a faith and culture other than his (John 4:4-24); and requested water from their well. A well in a desert place like Samaria is the very heart and soul of the people.
After his death, Peter had a vision from the Holy Spirit in which he saw the oneness in all that God has created. He woke up with a revelation that “Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.”. (Acts 10:10-35). Every nation includes people of all races, religions or tribes.
Paul taught after Jesus that you must do all in your power to live peaceably with all people. (Roman 12: 18) For, God is present in all and through all people. Ephesians 4:4-6.
The Anti-Christ: We see the Anti-Christ churches binding and cursing their enemies and the congregation rejoicing when members give testimonies of their “victory” over enemies.
Christ Mission 3: Respect for Self and Culture
Jesus respected and valued the Jewish culture he was born into and participated in their observances, while showing where necessity surpasses the ceremonial laws.
Culture groups people into families, clans or nations. It gives them a sense of identity and inculcates in them the idea of God and defines their relationship to the Divinity as well as imbibing in them a worldview of Oneness of all men. The destruction of a culture is the destruction of their identity, drive for self-determination and creativity and they, consequently, are destroyed. Jesus taught that you must love your neighbour as yourself, meaning that you must love yourself and extend the same to others. Mark 12:30-31.
The preservation and growth of a culture is so important that Jesus set himself up to fulfil the law and not to destroy it. Matthew. 5:17.
In line with his culture, when Jesus healed the leper Mark 1:40-44, he charged him to go and perform the cultural requirements as stated in Leviticus 14:3-7.This ritual is similar to what we find in many traditional African religious practices.
Jesus observed the traditional Passover of his culture Matthew 26:18. And he directed that he should be remembered whenever his followers break the Passover bread. Luke 22:19.
Many cultural practices, especially of Africans, that are condemned by modern day Christians are accepted in the Bible. For example, many would accept the words of the African traditional prayers but condemn the libations that go with it. The Bible calls libation “drink offering’ and commands that as much as a quarter gallon of gin be poured in the holiest places unto God. Numbers 28:7.
There is a systematic plan by “the Powers that be” to destroy Africa and keep her people in slavery by ①dividing them and ②destroying their culture.
The Anti-Christ Destroys Africa:Unsuspecting Africans are being brainwashed to look down on themselves and to self-destruct. The Anti-Christ system in place makes you feel that your name is evil so you take on Western ones; your skin colour is evil so you bleach.
Everything that is sweet and good must have a Western prefix to it such as “blofoakwadu” (Whiteman’s banana), “blofoakuto” (Whiteman’s orange), “blofonme” (Whiteman’s pineapple).
There was even an infamous belief that if you meet a Whiteman on your way to church, you must return home because you have seen God.
When you pray inviting the souls of the departed to join you, it is called Ancestral Worship but it is okay to pray through a Saint; and there is an All Saints Day but we are made to feel ashamed to have All Ancestors Day. To pray with water or a drink to bless the Earth that produces all the food that you eat is called Libation and is condemned; but the Bible commands us to do the same thing and calls it Drink Offering. Numbers 28:7; I Sam 7:6.
Religion is the primary tool used to denigrate and reduce the entire African race into hopeless nonentities which is an insult to God, the Creator of all.
Africa is divided into 54 nations and none of these divisions was done by Africans. Africa must wake up! And Etherean Mission champions this cause!
The Unique Position of Etherean Mission
Etherean Mission is the embodiment of the three Christ Missions. Etherean simply means “of the heavens” and we are on a mission to anchor heaven on earth. We follow the teachings of Jesus and not the mass consciousness of the church.
Our mission is to ①teach the divine nature of man ②awaken all to oneness, and to ③ restore the mystical traditions and dignity of the African people.
Those who go with the Anti-Christ are doomed with it.
Wake Up and Join Us Now!
Christ Directives for Salvation
Jesus did not at any time say that he was going to die to save anybody. He died to show us the way to die to our flesh sense so that we will have eternal spiritual life. The following are his prescriptions.
1. And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. Luke 9:23.
Self-denial is not self-rejection it is the daily rejecting of the dictates and persuasions of the senses of the flesh; of Sight, Smell, Touch, Taste and Hearing and follow what is in harmony only with spiritual growth. Deny that self that is easily hurt, feels proud, is in competition with others, wants to have all the wealth only to die and leave it all; that self that feels superior to others and finds things to condemn others for; that self that feels separate from others and from life, that does not see its connectedness with all of life. Deny that self and that requires huge spiritual disciplines and practices.
Take up your own cross means face your unique life challenges using both your pains and pleasures to glorify God. You are not to regard Jesus as special whose death gives you diplomatic access to heaven. You must work out your own salvation Philippians 2:12. And if you die with him, then you are resurrected in your spirit to live with him, that is, to live in the realm of his spiritual consciousness, which is heaven. 2 Timothy 2: 11.
2. So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. Jesus was saying that unless you follow him religiously and forego all earthly things, you will lose your life; JOHN 6: 53-56.
Simplistic minds take this to mean the eating of Holy Communion. To eat of the flesh of Jesus and drink his blood means you have to be like him in the flesh and in the spirit. Often you hear people say that Jesus was special and we cannot be like him. His demand is clear; special or not special you are to respond to every situation like Jesus would do in the body and in the spirit; there is no other easy way. You are to have the physical and spiritual Christ characters of Jesus.
To be like Jesus, you always ask yourself: “In what ways am I like Jesus? What is my Christ decision in this situation?” Often, you rather want to feel distant from Jesus by considering him special and in a height you cannot be. Contrary he wants you to be fully like him in his flesh and spiritual character. And Scripture says that you are joint heirs with him. Romans 8:17.
3. Let this mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus; who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with GOD. Philippians 2:5-6.This is the Christian goal and it demands of you to have the Christ mind that will make you realize and live as god without a sense of guilt or fear. This is in harmony with Jesus’s teaching that you are god John 10:34; because we are all created in the spiritual image and in the form of God Genesis. 1:26-27.
For God so loved the world that he gave his begotten son not to be slaughtered in sacrifice to Him but to show you the way to your salvation.
