WHAT IS THIS “GOSPEL OF IMMORTALITY”?

By: Evangelist Izobofolo, Theophilus


WHAT IS THIS “GOSPEL OF IMMORTALITY”?

It appears to me the crave for immortality is a reality man can’t escape. It seems the desire is innate and man can’t help himself from seeking ways and means to achieve it. Although people may not say this directly, their actions often betray them. Even those who do not believe in God would admit they desire immortality if they would be honest enough.

Various steps people take, among others, to immortalize themselves include:

(1) Prioritizing Male Children Above Female Children:

Although this may not apply to all cultures, men in some cultures would do anything humanly possible to have a male child because of the belief that the male child sustains the lineage and family name. If their first wife is unable to bear a male child they could marry another wife or get a concubine outside to get them one. Some may even divorce their first wife and marry a concubine who has been able to bear a male child to replace her. Those who want to stay faithful would keep trying until the wife can no longer bear or their economy can’t accommodate more children.

(2)Street Naming:

Some pay handsome amounts of money to the local authorities to get streets named after them. This, they do to immortalize themselves. Sometimes it is the society or the government that names streets after people because of their immense contributions to the society. They often say they do this to immortalize the persons.

(3) Monument Building:

People build monuments in form of statues, public facilities and sometimes whole institution to immortalize themselves.

(4) Immortality Through Work:

People seek to immortalize themselves through their work. They do this through inventions, innovations, extraordinary altruistic acts and writing.

(5) Immortality Through Leadership:

Some seek immortality through leadership. They say they want to leave a good legacy for future generations.

These and others are ways and means by which the natural man seeks immortality. Does any of these confer immortality on them in the real sense of the word? The answer is capital NO! None of these attempts confer immortality on anyone.

As far as the Scripture is concerned, only God has the power of immortality. He is the only one who cannot die either physically or spiritually. He is the only one who can give eternal life or immortality to man.

“Who only has IMMORTALITY, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen” (1Tim 6:13-16)

Not only does God have the power of immortality, He has also commanded man to consciously seek immortality through Christ.

“16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

18  He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3:16 & 18)

“9  Who has saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

10  But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death, and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.” (2Tim 1:9-10)

We know that it is not enough to mentally assent to Christ, the seeker of immortality must also deliberately believe Christ and obey Him.

“6  Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

7  To them who BY PATIENT CONTINUANCE IN WELL DOING seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life:

8  But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath.” (Rom 2:6-8)

Despite we are told we have immortality through Christ, we are also told God has appointed a day in His own timing when our mortal (corruptible) bodies would be transformed to immortal (glorious or incorruptible) bodies. The whole of 1 Corinthians 15 is devoted to this subject.

“51  Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

53  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

54  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

55  O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory?” (1Cor 15:51-55)

This is the final consummation of our redemption called the resurrection. Concerning this, the Bible says the whole of creation earnestly awaits and we that have the firstfruit of the Spirit yearn.

“19  For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.

20  For the creation was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope,

21  Because the creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

22  For we know that THE WHOLE CREATION GROANS AND TRAVAILS IN PAIN TOGETHER UNTIL NOW.” (Rom 8:19-22)

Though the proponents of Dominionism would have us believe Romans 8:19-22 is about the attainment of earthly dominion in this present age by a privileged group who have access to special revelations that are not available to all, this scripture isn’t talking about such. Rather, it is about the consummation of our redemption which would happen at the second appearing of Christ. Romans 8:23 says the manifestation that all the creation and the believers earnestly await is the redemption of our bodies (the resurrection of the saints). It is not a superhuman manifestation of Christians as it’s being erroneously taught.

” And not only they, but ourselves ALSO, WHO HAVE THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THE SPIRIT, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, WAITING FOR THE ADOPTION, THAT IS, THE REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY.” (Rom 8:23)

Verses 24 and 25 of the chapter categorically say we are saved by hope and we should patiently wait for this hope. That is, we should patiently wait for the resurrection of our bodies on the last day.

” 24  For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man sees, why does he yet hope for?

25  But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.” (Rom 8:23-24)

Of late, I have noted with great concern some brethren who go about preaching what they call “the gospel of immortality” which is quite different from what the Scripture says. They say their bodies would attain immortality in this present life through the special revelation they’ve got.

Some of them also appear to be pushing special revelations that are not documented in the Bible.

Please permit me to humbly warn that this move has taken too much upon itself. Let those who are into it retreat because it won’t end well.

Of a truth the Gospel of Christ is the Gospel of immortality but nowhere in the entire scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are we told our bodies would attain immortality until the resurrection day.

Though, the proponents of this doctrine may think what they are saying is new, they need to be aware it isn’t new. What they are teaching is not in reality different from the teachings of an old group called “Manifest Sons of God”. This move is a rejuvenation of the old sect.

They should also note the humiliation the people who said they won’t die until Christ’s second coming suffered in the past. They all had to eat their words. Why would anyone want to go through that again?

Let those who are involved be aware of the dangers of establishing doctrines with extrabiblical revelations. It’s like opening a Pandora box that has a beginning but no end. Once the frontiers of scriptural revelation have been shifted to establish a doctrine, there would be no end to the number of strange doctrines that would follow.

As far as the salvation of mankind is concerned, there is nothing new to be revealed. Please, note that the Scripture is not given to satisfy human curiosity. No one, except God, knows the day the resurrection would happen. This is why He is God. Let’s be content with the faith as it was once delivered to the saints. Shalom!

What Does It Mean To Be A New Creation

By: Bishop William B. Caractor


What Does It Mean To Be A New Creation (2 Corinthians 5:17)?

The new creation is described in 2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

The word “therefore” refers us back to verses 14-16 where Paul tells us that all believers have died with Christ and no longer live for themselves.

Our lives are no longer worldly; they are now spiritual. Our “death” is that of the old sin nature which was nailed to the cross with Christ.

It was buried with Him, and just as He was raised up by the Father, so are we raised up to “walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:4).

That new person that was raised up is what Paul refers to in 2 Corinthians 5:17 as the “new creation.”

To understand the new creation, first we must grasp that it is in fact a creation, something created by God.

John 1:13 tells us that this new birth was brought about by the will of God.

We did not inherit the new nature or decide to re-create ourselves anew. Neither did God simply clean up our old nature; He created something entirely fresh and unique.

The new creation is completely new, brought about from nothing, just as the whole universe was created by God ex nihilo, from nothing.

Only the Creator could accomplish such a feat.

Second, “old things have passed away.” The “old” refers to everything that is part of our old nature—natural pride, love of sin, reliance on works, and our former opinions, habits and passions.

Most significantly, what we loved has passed away, especially the supreme love of self and with it self-righteousness, self-promotion, and self-justification.

The new creature looks outwardly toward Christ instead of inwardly toward self. The old things died, nailed to the cross with our sin nature.

Along with the old passing away, “the new has come!” Old, dead things are replaced with new things, full of life and the glory of God.

The newborn soul delights in the things of God and abhors the things of the world and the flesh. Our purposes, feelings, desires, and understandings are fresh and different.

We see the world differently. The Bible seems to be a new book, and though we may have read it before, there is a beauty about it which we never saw before, and which we wonder at not having perceived.

The whole face of nature seems to us to be changed, and we seem to be in a new world.

The heavens and the earth are filled with new wonders, and all things seem now to speak forth the praise of God.

There are new feelings toward all people—a new kind of love toward family and friends, a new compassion never before felt for enemies, and a new love for all mankind.

The things we once loved, we now detest. The sin we once held onto, we now desire to put away forever.

We “put off the old man with his deeds” (Colossians 3:9), and put on the “new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:24).

What about the Christian who continues to sin? There is a difference between continuing to sin and continuing to live in sin.

No one reaches sinless perfection in this life, but the redeemed Christian is being sanctified (made holy) day by day, sinning less and hating it more each time he fails.

Yes, we still sin, but unwillingly and less and less frequently as we mature. Our new self hates the sin that still has a hold on us.

The difference is that the new creation is no longer a slave to sin, as we formerly were.

We are now freed from sin and it no longer has power over us (Romans 6:6-7).

Now we are empowered by and for righteousness. We now have the choice to “let sin reign” or to count ourselves “dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus” (Romans 6:11-12).

Best of all, now we have the power to choose the latter.

The new creation is a wondrous thing, formed in the mind of God and created by His power and for His glory.

RESURRECTION POWER LIVES PERMANENTLY IN YOU

By: Evang. Theophilus Izobofolo


RESURRECTION POWER LIVES PERMANENTLY IN YOU

Before Jesus died and resurrected, people were already getting married, succeeding in business and conquering nations.

If you are waiting for Resurrection Morning Anointing to resurrect your business ideas, you missed, WHY, Jesus died and rose again. Your teachers didn’t teach you the truth. Very soon, you will become frustrated when your business collapses despite sowing into today’s resurrection morning anointing. Calm down and learn the true gospel which is void of materialism and materialistic ‘blessings’ and curses.

The major reason why Jesus died was to ACTIVATE the New Covenant between Himself and God for Man. “For where a covenant is, there must of NECESSITY be the death of the one who made it.” ~ Hebrews 9:16

It was NECESSARY for Jesus to die, not to help you reach orgasm or give you millions of dollars, but SOLELY to activate The New Covenant of Salvation through Grace. This actually is the greatest blessing – that our sins no longer comes between us and the Father. Wow. That’s the good news. The power of sin has been destroyed. For those who hate to hear it, Sin is Dead. Calm down and celebrate Jesus.

Don’t let anyone scream resurrection prophetic nonsense into your ears. A sound teacher of the word will take his time to bring you to the knowledge of the Finished Work of Christ and not be in a hurry to make empty prophecies which never materialize because they are not inspired by the spirit of truth but by the spirit of greed.

When you know this truth, you will rest. You will stop going from one Easter Vigil to another in search of resurrection power. You will realize that the resurrection power LIVES PERMANENTLY IN YOU. Glory to Jesus.

Nonsense sermons on a resurrection morning…I prophesy, because He rose, your marriage, career, business will rise again. And the crowd screams AMEN like thunder.

Jesus didn’t rise so that your business will rise again. Stop that nonsense. If you want your business to rise again, be innovative and strategic. The resurrection of Jesus has nothing to do with buying and selling.

He rose to execute His will (the new covenant) which was activated by His death. He is both the Testator and the executor of His own will. In His resurrection, we have hope that It Is truly Finished. Stop using His resurrection to make motivational speeches. It’s a spiritual matter – not an economic issue.

Friends, Easter has come and has gone… But the truth will never go away…. Wake up… Rise up in knowledge. You are now mature. You are no longer a spiritual babe in need of milk and honey prophetic ginger… Rise up in calmness of spirit… And start walking in the knowledge of the Finished Work of Christ.

Maranatha.

GOD FEARING IS NOT A QUALITY

GOD FEARING IS NOT A QUALITY

Listen guys, i wish someone had told you this before now, let me quickly show you what it means to be unequally yoked with unbelievers as it concerns relationships, I think you should learn this perspective:

If only you knew how much time you have wasted searching for a God-fearing partner. If only you knew how many potential life partners you have missed because you’re too busy looking for a good Christian Jesus loving God-fearing partner.

Listen guys, God-fearing is not a quality people posess, it is WHO THEY ARE, it is a NATURE people carry, a lot of us do this, we write all kinds of things we are looking for in a life partner; must be God-fearing, must be spiritual, does not smoke/drink, a faithful tither, passion for Kingdom things etc.

Naaa, these things are not necessary because God fearing is not a quality but a nature, you cannot carry the nature of God and still be a drunk, you cannot carry the nature of God and not be a kingdom addict and a God chaser. So what am looking for is a “COMPATIBLE” partner in a group of “God-fearing men”! Not God fearing partner among “incompatible men” That is the big difference.

A lot of us make the mistake of believing that just because a person is saved and single it means we are equally yoked, no we aren’t. Just because a person is born again don’t mean that the yoke is equal, no it isn’t…

You can be equally yoked in quoting scriptures of the Bible, you can be equally yoked in attending church services every Sunday, sitting at the front row, you can be equally yoked in participating actively as leaders in your departments at church, you can be equally yoked in desiring the things of God, just like the scripture puts it, been saved gives us the privilege of being a member of the body of Christ.

But,

Are you equally yoked in character? Are you equally yoked in forgiving a hurt? Are you equally yoked in forgetting past deeds? Are you equally yoked in getting a job to support each other financially? Are you equally yoked in allowing the issues of the family stay in the family? Are you equally yoked in placing each other’s needs first before your own needs?

There is a lot to the understanding of that scripture, especially when it comes to the area of dating and marriage. People try to run away from yoking with unbelievers, only to turn around and enter into an unequal yoke with a believer. *They might be GOOD for you, but that doesn’t make them RIGHT for you.

Two believers will struggle if they have different  perspectives about Marriage. Two believers will struggle if they obey different doctrines or principles of a Godly relationship, and this is where some of us slightly miss the concept of yoking,  we must first be equally yoked in Christ through faith, and then be equally yoked with each other through character/COMPATIBILITY.

So stop looking for a God-fearing partner, go to the Den of God-fearing people and find the one that is SUITABLE for you, that’s the secret. Hope someone catch this Rhema?
