THE CHRISTIAN WALK
|Sunday, May 19, 2019|
Cameron, Texas, USA
e resume our series on Satanic Christian sects which we began at the beginning of the year 2019 before I was satanically and demonically interrupted by the denizens of Hell, Fire and their human minions through the death of my second son, Oluwafemi Emmanuel Fayemiwo. As I explained here during the tragic episode, nothing, I repeat absolutely nothing shall separate us from spreading the Good News of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As Romans 8:38-39 told us: "For I am convinced (and persuaded) that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Physical death is mere transition, a temporary cessation of physical relationship between us and our loved ones. I will see my dear son anon, after I am done with my purpose and assignment here on earth. He is done with his own assignment and that was why he departed ahead of me. Meanwhile, those of us who consciously and knowingly enrolled into the Army of the Living God knew ab initio the raging warfare currently going on between Light and Darkness, Good and Bad, Good and Satan and what it portends. My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ vouchsafed this reality when He called me, and with His strength, we shall overcome, because He has won the war for us already on Calvary, Hallelujah!
The spiritual warfare currently raging on earth is deadly, intense and ferocious; albeit our Great Conqueror, the Lord Jesus Christ had won the eternal victory for us on Calvary, yet as He warned us, there will at times be collateral damage on both sides. But one thing is sure: Victory is already ours for; as He assured us in John 16:33: "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." Consequently, this week, we resume our spiritual warfare by zero-in on another Satanic white garment church known as Cherubim and Seraphim-C& S-which is Siamese Twins of Celestial Church of Christ which we had earlier exposed in this column in March this year. Many have opined that, it is not the contents of worship that matters, rather the hearts of the worshippers. In other words, the Almighty God looks at the hearts of people and thus will give a pass to those innocently deceived, even though they veered of His chosen path, because of naivety and foolishness. That analogy is akin to saying a good driver who has no criminal record kills a pedestrian, because he forgets to check the condition of his car and should not be prosecuted for committing vehicular manslaughter and be given a pass. Zeal bereft of knowledge is sesame for destruction and monumental disaster. That is why the Creator gave us brains to think and mind to evaluate spiritual matters and cautioned us thusy in I John 4:1.: "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world."
Do you read that meticulous refrain: test every spirits? We read such warning labels in cigarettes, harmful products and other endeavors likely to cause far-reaching calamitous implications. If human beings will scrutinize products and labor-saving devices to have their money's worth and save their physical lives, why don't we take the same punctilious diligence in looking for the truth on matters concerning our eternal destination? Why do most humans imbibe and swallow hook, line and sinker every spiritual teaching, church matters and miracles being dished out there by sundry charlatans, religious racketeers and dabblers? If there is any fake religious sect that has wrecked argosies of lives and shipwreck the faith of innumerable naïve seekers of the truth, the Cherubim and Seraphim a.k.a C & S is on top. I knew because as usual, I was once a devotee.
MY EXPERIENCE AT THE CHERUBIM AND SERAPHIM SECT WHITE GARMENT SECT IN NIGERIA
When the True Lord God Almighty freed the Israelites from Egyptian thralldom, He warned the Israelites not to copy the satanic practices of the Canaanites considered as abomination before Him. He warned them He would kick them out of the land just as He kicked out the Canaanites. The Israelites not only sinned, but they surpassed the Canaanites that were flushed out of the land. As God warned them, the judgment of God was eventually visited on the Israelites. The human beings of today are not different from the Israeli women of those years who insisted they would continue to worship the Queen of heaven because of fleeting blessings (Jeremiah 44:17). This is why the fastest growing denomination in Christendom today in Africa is the White Garment Church competing with the Celestial Church of the World. You see them all over the Dark Continent and many of them spreading to the West now. Scrutinized spiritually, these white garment churches are glorified voodoo and warlock cells masquerading as true churches of God, but these are not the churches of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
As the white garment churches are counterfeiting the True Messiah, so also are the Mormons. Known as Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, this is another demon-worship, Satan-inspired denomination opening an expressway to the pit of hell, which we exposed in this column few weeks ago. In my several encounters with religious racketeers, I also dabbled into this denomination in the 1980s way back in Africa. Besides the different doctrinal issues they hold dear, such as avoiding tobacco, prohibiting members from drinking coffee and all other weird stuffs, the primary they gave to their book of Mormons is certainly unbiblical. Any Church movement that tells its adherents that there is another book that must be used alongside the revealed will of God than the greatest book on earth; the Holy Bible is another ploy by Satan to lead the unwary and the ignorant into the pit of hell. Counted among this deceptive sect are the members of the naively-peripatetic Jehovah Witnesses cult which we have equally unmasked in this column few weeks ago. Brethren, watch out when any church or religious organization tells you yes it's good to read the Bible, but there is another secret book somewhere that must accompany our reading of the real Word of Life. No secret message(s) can be claimed by anyone professing salvation or prophecy for humanity after our Risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ had made the supreme sacrifice for the sin of humanity through His Death and Crucifixion on Calvary. Tetelestai; the King of kings and the Lord of lords declared on Calvary and it's the final verdict; "It's finished" (John 19:30). The book of Mormon is full of jeremiads, convoluted, disjointed and without head or tail and my understanding after reading the accounts recorded was to conclude that all those characters could not be no other beings than demons. The account of Joseph Smith, the young lad said to be called by a spirit to a cave where he discovered some books buried over a long time and commanded to write out the messages into what today is the book of Mormon could not have been inspired by the True Lord God Almighty.
This extra and adjunct thing that must be added to the work of Jesus Christ has been a leitmotif of all pagan and Satan-inspired church movements. Apostle Paul said much about these extra and adjunct things in addition to Calvary as the thematic points of the Book of Hebrews. The Lord God Almighty had spoken and continues to speak to humanity in the Holy Bible and that was why He admonished us in Joshua 1: 7-9: "Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Any religious leader, or founder of any religion who rises and says, he's some hidden truths to deliver and there is a book we can rate alongside the Holy Bible is definitely a messenger of Satan, because; "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved" (Acts 4: 12). The Holy Bible is the ONLY Book containing the Revealed Will of God; every Christian book takes one form of wisdom or the other, a revelation or sets of revelation knowledge from this Great Book; but for any religious leader or church movement to say there is another book that is equal to the Holy Bible is demonic and such a religious leader is a charlatan. The book of Mormon is a satanic book, period. Now what do the Cherubim and Seraphim Sect teaches? How did the movement begin?
I-Moshood- met a high-ranking wizard and warlock in Nigeria in the course of my more than 30- year journalism career way back in Africa in the 1990s. He said he was the president of the White Witches Association of Nigeria and lived in Ketu, north Lagos. I was the first journalist to give him coverage and publicity in 1985 in the defunct National Concord newspapers owned by the late Chief M.K.O Abiola. His name is Alhaji Mukadan Waliyi Abdul-Jabar Balogun, a.k.a Oko Oso and Oko Aje (literally the overseer and controller of all witches and wizards). In the course of series of interviews I had with him, I asked him one day to explain to me off-record how witches operate. He did but I didn't believe some of his stories, but later I met another man who went to India with this Islamic mullah who returned to set up a church in Nigeria; one Pastor Dagunro at Ifako-Agege. During my association with the said pastor, I observed certain satanic commonalities between the two. To reiterate once again, there is nothing like white, black, and red, yellow, green or whatever witches. There is a whole bunch of white people who are witches in a town known as Cassadaga Village in Volusia County, Florida here in the United States and all their activities are the same with the black witches in Nigeria, Africa nay across the globe. So witches are the same all over the world. They are satanic agents working consciously, assiduously and actively with the forces of darkness to perpetuate evil, perpetrate carnage and misery among human beings on earth. Their eternal doom is the same as their master and lord, Satan and the demons using them.
The C & S Movement could be traced to its foremost founder; Moses Orimolade Tunolase (1879-1933). Revered by his adherents as a man of God, he left an indelible imprint after his transition, but as perceptive minds and incisive thinkers guarded by the Holy Spirit know, Satan and his demons have diabolical artifices in infiltrating the Church of God. Now today's C & S Movement comes in variegated stripes preaching heresies and doctrines of demons as Apostle Paul warned before hand: "The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons." Moses Orimolade Tunolase's apotheosis writs large in the C & S Movement he left behind, but the hodgepodge that dot the spiritual landscape holding allegiance to this revered man of God have departed from his teachings and righteousness. Hitherto, what is happening in the C & S Movement are latter additions to the teachings and doctrines of Tunolase which we shall capsulize hereunder:-
The Use of Candles:-Burning of candles as spiritual acts of worship is demonic. Nowhere in the entire Book of Life were we asked and commanded by the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to burn candles as prayer supplements. Among demon worshippers and devotees of principalities, warlocks and witches, burning of candles are demonic rituals meant to channeling fallen angels and spirits. Any church so called that teaches members and attendees to burn candles; no matter the color of the candles, is a cult and demon-energized movement masquerading as the church of the Living God, because we should not marvel "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light" (2 Corinthians 11:14).
The Burning of Incense:- Fallen angels and their loutish cohorts in the kingdom of Darkness stink. In my co-authored magnum opus: The Kingdom of Satan Exposed (see https://www.amazon.com/KINGDOM-EXPOSED-Activities-Principalities-Worship-ebook/dp/B00RUNPD1G), we gave graphic description of the modus operandi of demonic forces. Burning of incense after our Risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ procured our redemption on Calvary with His Precious Blood is demon worship. As the Holy Bible warned: "….and whoever burns memorial incense is like one who worships an idol" (Isaiah 66:3D).
Angelic Worship: - A signature mark of the C & S is veneration of angelic hosts. You hear them mentioning the name angel Raphael, which is not mentioned in the Word of Life. Raphael fell with Lucifer and is not considered as part of the Guardian Angels of God. We are warned not to worship angels as the Book of Life pointed out in Revelation 22:8-9: " And I am John, who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had shown me these things. But he said to me, "Do not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship God!" Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will not and never yield His Sovereign Glory to any entity, spiritual or temporal and angels are our ministering spirits. In other words, they are sent to us from on high and we also send them too when occasions demand just as the Word of Life aptly stated: "Are-referring to angels- they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" (Hebrews 1:14).
Rituals, Animal Sacrifice and Water Bathing:-In my co-authored book referenced above, I narrated the ugly incident I witnessed at Pastor Dagunro's C & S Church in Agege, Lagos Nigeria in the 1990s. For those that have read the book, they remember the episode. Killing of animals as forms of sacrifices occur with rapidity in this sect, yet the Holy Bible warned us that we should not sacrifice animals as burnt offerings to the True Lord God Almighty. "Whoever slaughters an ox is like one who slays a man; whoever sacrifices a lamb is like one who breaks a dog's neck; whoever presents a grain offering is like one who offers pig's blood; whoever offers incense is like one who praises an idol. Indeed, they have chosen their own ways and delighted in their abominations. So I will choose their punishment and I will bring terror upon them, because I called and no one answered, I spoke and no one listened. But they did what was evil in My sight and chose that in which I did not delight" (Isaiah 66:3-4).
After the Blood Atonement of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ which He lavished generously on us on the Cross and His Resurrection three days later, no further shedding of blood anymore for sinful humanity, period and end of story, finished! When I pointed this biblical truth to the worshippers at Pastor Dangunro's C & S Church in Nigeria thirty years ago, they nearly threw me out of that church. As Apostle Paul pointed out in Hebrews 9:11-15: "But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that have come, He went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made by hands and is not of this creation. He did not enter by the blood of goats and calves, but He entered the Most Holy Place once for all by His own blood, thus securing eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that their bodies are clean, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself unblemished to God, purify our consciences from works of death, so that we may serve the living God! Therefore Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, now that He has died to redeem them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant."
Like their white garment Celestial Church ilk, members of C & S also traffic regularly in aquatic demonology and marine spiritism by taking their members to rivers and streams for spiritual bath. Such spiritual cleansings are indeed veritable demonic doorways for the Queen of the Coast which are prevalent nowadays among prostitutes, the pornographic industry, fornication, adultery, sexual deviance, lesbianism, homosexual acts and other sex-related sins condemned by the True Lord God Almighty.
White Garment Appearance:- Nothing exemplifies false humility in this sect than cloaked and garbed in white apparel. There is nothing pious about this type of dressing and it is even ludicrous that many of their members commit fornication, adultery and all manners of lewd and lascivious acts in this apparel.
Séances and Supernatural Telepathy:-If you go to any so-called church or man/woman of God and you are being told every conceivable thing you have ever done in your life from birth and that was your first time of meeting the so-called man or woman of God, you are been deceived, bamboozled and beguiled. The first time I visited Pastor Danguro thirty years ago, his eyes roiled and he began to tell me everything about me from birth. They call such demonic powers, prophecy. It is all sham! Any man or woman of God who is meeting you for the first time and start jerking his or her head and squinting his/her eyes and then begin to tell you about your life from cradle is a shaman, sorcerer, and one of the menageries of Satan's hirelings. Folks, telling anyone about your past can easily be achieved via Google, no pun intended. Prophecy is about the future as Apostle Paul pointed out in I Corinthians 14:22-25: "Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers, but for unbelievers. Prophecy, however, is for believers, not for unbelievers. So if the whole church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and some who are uninstructed or some unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are out of your minds? But if an unbeliever or uninstructed person comes in while everyone is prophesying, he will be convicted and called to account by all, and the secrets of his heart will be made clear. So he will fall face down and worship God, proclaiming, "God is truly among you!"
So what is the bottom line; if you are a member of this sect? Here is what I will say to you as the Holy Bible instructed: "Therefore, "Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you" (2 Corinthians 6:17). Repent, confess your sins, believe and profess the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, become genuinely born-again and truly-regenerated child of the True Living God Almighty. Then pray for the Power of the Holy Spirit Who will direct you to a Living Church where you can grow in the full knowledge of Him and then discover your purpose and mission in life as your Creator intended.
