INKSTER TATOOS AND HOLINESS:
WHAT SAYS THE HOLY SPIRIT?

e all came from the True Lord God Almighty, because He and He Only is the Source of Life. There is nothing like evolution as many are being deceived by Mr. Charles Robert Darwin (1809-1882), a highly psychologically disturbed man first deceived by Satan the Master Deceiver himself, who is now being used to beguile the unwary and the ignorant. How this satanic theory has become de rigueur in the academy today is amazing, yet this thought from the pit of hell is less than two centuries old. Although the Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ is the Creator and Source of Life, because: "In the beginning was the Word-referring to the Lord Jesus Christ-and the Word was with God, and the Word-Jesus Christ-was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him-Jesus Christ-all things were made-the animals, including you and I and all human souls-without Him-this Jesus Christ-nothing was made that has been made" (John 1:1-3), but some souls are still being sucked in by the Master Deceiver-in-Chief, Satan. Do you read that human life came from the Only Life-Giver, Jesus Christ? So, you are reading this; you have no life outside Jesus, and your existence came from our Lord Jesus Christ, period! You may argue and debate this spiritual fact, but it is what it is. When you die and appear before this Lord Jesus Christ at His Judgment Seat, verily you will discover He is what He says He is-the Lord and Creator Himself-but it may be too late.

When this Lord and Savior Jesus Christ created you and I; He sent us to this earthly dimension to carry out His will. In other words, He put us individually here to achieve a task or sets of tasks to bring honor and glory to His Awesome Name. Apostle Paul described it thus: "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them" (Ephesians 2:10). If you are reading this anywhere on planet earth and you are not certain, sure and convinced that what you are doing is good work He prepared beforehand for you to walk in and work it out, then retrace your steps, seek His Glorious Face and discover His work for your life. Let me nail it down brethren; no matter your earthly achievements; billions of monies, chains of school awards, college degrees and university accolades, material possessions, political resumes, fame and popularity; they are worthless and inanities before a Holy and Perfect Lord Jesus Christ. Hear His verdict: "…What is highly valued among men is detestable in God's sight" (Luke 16:15). Do you read that? All those professorial titles, political accomplishments, music awards, appearing on millionaire and billionaire lists of the world, number of cars, houses, men and women you have slept with, the number of private jets you own etcetera are detestable before the King of kings. That is why Death has made it plain to us that we will not take any of these earthly stuffs with us as soon as we cross to the Other Side. In our individual life's journey, the Creator has set up this system in such a way that each of us shall inescapably freely decide how we want to run the race of life and ultimately where we shall spend eternity. The earthly life is a smidgen of eternal life, no matter the number of years we spent here: 2 years or 100 years; it palls insignificantly in duration in the light of eternity. As a matter of fact, life begins afresh upon death, but there are only two aisles of the eternal divide: heaven which is up and hell which is in the nether.

The True Lord God Almighty and Satan are two Central Figures in this mortal spiritual warfare that has been raging for millennia over the souls of human beings. We are at war, make no mistake about it and each of us is involved. You either fight this war over your soul or perish; there is no middle ground. For those of us that are in the thick of this spiritual warfare and have concretized its internecine repercussions, we thread soberly knowing that "…our adversary the devil prowls-roaming about-(and)- around like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour" (I Peter 5:8). Consequently, we abide by the instructions of our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ in this fiercely deadly and raging spiritual war: "Be sober-minded and alert" (I Peter 5:8a) "Submit yourselves then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee" (James 4:7). As we normally say; eternal vigilance is the price of liberty often credited to Mr. Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States. But those immortal words were credited to Mr. Jefferson, (1743-1826), third president of the United States, but the original author of those words meant spiritual vigilance and exhortation by saved souls to be on the qui vive in our ineluctable war with Satan and his fallen angels. John Philipot Curran (1750-1817) was an Irish lawyer once described as the greatest "people's advocate of the 18th century" for his wit. Later he became successful as member of parliament, write, author, politician and statesman. As a judge, he made these immortal words in one of his judgments: "The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance, which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." Today, those evergreen words which were commended to us by our Lord Jesus Christ cannot be truer in this continuing war between Good and Bad, Light and Darkness, God and Satan. If you ignore this timeless maxim, Satan and his demons will have you for supper.

*No matter the words of the tattoo (s) on your body, the Commandment and Instructions of the True Lord God Almighty against this satanic seal is unambiguous and direct: "Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves, I am the Lord"-Leviticus 19:28).

As soon as you made up your mind to serve our Lord Jesus Christ by confessing your sins and are determined to live both by His examples and precepts; you will be tested by the Lord. Why this test? Apostle Peter provided the answer: "… so that the proven character of your faith-more precious than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire-may result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 1:7). Some of these tests of our faith after we made open declaration and admission of Jesus Christ as Lord, Master and Savior of our life will involve "suffering, grief, trials of many kinds…" (James 1:2). The sign and certificate of your successfully passing the suffering, grief and trials of many kinds that He allows in your life is the Presence of the Holy Spirit. Yes, the Holy Spirit is the prove that you are now one of His Own, because "…if anyone does not have the (Holy) Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ" (Romans 8:9b). Since eternal life and entering His Glory are promises to be fulfilled in the Street of Time; the True Lord God Almighty Who "cannot lie" (Titus 1:2) gives each of us a down payment to reward our faith in Him right here on earth. Here is how Apostle Paul described the Holy Spirit as the down payment for those of us saved by His Grace and whose names are written in the Book of Life: "And you also were included in Christ Jesus when you heard the message of Truth, the Gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, Who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession-to the praise of His Glory" (Ephesians 1:13-14).

THE SEAL OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD AND THE SEAL OF SATAN: The word; "seal" is pivotal legally and spiritually in our eternal life's journey. A seal is the proof authenticating a legal document. I disclosed here in this column last week that Satan too is also in the business of affixing "seal" on those who belong to him; either willfully or beguilable. Blood is life and the flesh is intricately linked with blood as the Almighty God Himself disclosed: "And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each human being, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of another human being" (Genesis 9:4-5). Satan wants his imprint or "seal" in the body of every soul and the current Coronavirus vaccine is a veritable gateway to this lifeblood covenant (Please read again last week's Christian Walk Column article and fervently pray to the Lord Jesus Christ to open your spiritual eyes to this spiritual truth. If you are not a genuine born-again Christian, you are wasting your time by reading the article, because it would sound as nonsense:- (https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/031821.html).

In addition to vaccination which seals the human soul for Satan and his demons, tattooing of the human body is also another demonic doorway for the spiritual forces of evil on earth. Tattoo of whatever stripes are abominations to the True Lord God Almighty and He warned in His Words: "Do not cut you bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord" (Leviticus 19:28). Again, the Lord God Almighty warned those of us who truly belong to Him in Deuteronomy 14:1: "You are the sons-and daughters-of the Lord your God; do not cut yourselves-incisions and tattoos- or shave your foreheads on behalf of the dead." Our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ had distinctive nail marks in His Hands as proofs of His Sacrificial Death on Calvary for the sin of humanity. "Now Thomas called Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So, the other disciples told him: "We have seen the Lord!" But he-referring to Thomas-replied; "Unless I see the nail marks in His Hands, and put my finger where the nails have been, and put my hand into His Side, I will never believe" (John 20:25) "Eight days later, His disciples were once again inside with the doors locked, and Thomas was with them. Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you." Then Jesus said to Thomas, "Put your finger here and look at My Hands. Reach out your hand and put it into My Side. Stop doubting and believe." Thomas replied, "My Lord and my God!" Jesus said to him, "Because you have seen Me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed" (John 20:26-29). Satan also wants to leave his mark on the human body as a seal of owning such souls and tattooing the human body is one of such identification marks. If you already have tattoo marks on your body and have given your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, go for deliverance immediately! If you keep the mark and seal of Satan in your body, Satan has the legitimate spiritual right to contest your soul with the Lord Jesus Christ after death, it is as simple as that. You ignore this spiritual warning to your eternal peril!
