Why high places and altars

And Samuel said, as thy sword hath made women childless, so shall thy mother be childless among women. And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the Lord in Gilgal. Samuel 15:33
................................................................................

Only thunder and rain reveal the depth of wickedness of humanhood.

Why high places and altars? Because we prefer king and queen to reign over us instead of the Holy One of Israel (Chukwu Okike Abiama). The hefty burden of the high places and alters upon human experience are in three folds: religious, political, and financial.

Religious high places and altars: For us to come to Christ, for us to appropriate the Tree of life ever present here and now, we must pull down the religious high places and altars ravaging at these various levels in human experience: international, national, and local.

The religious high places and altars are the creed and dogma of organized religion, which are the handiwork of men. These high places and altars occupy offices as: Pope, Cardinals, Arch Bishop of Canterbury, Arch Bishops, Bishops, General overseers, Sheikh, Imams, Alfas, Pastors, High priest/priestess, Teachers, Masters, Dalai Lama, Lama,  Sad-guru, Monks, and Rabbi.

Your freedom and my freedom from the influence of these high places and altars lies in our acceptance of the Word that Christ gives to the world, “Ï and My Father are one”. You are the image and likeness of God Almighty, the Holy One of Israel, Chukwu Okike Abiama. Therefore, you can never be under the influence of any dogma or creed of organized religion. The only true religion is ‘Conscious oneness’ with Christ Jesus, who was, who is, and who is to come the Almighty; the begotten Son of God at the center of our being and the infinite universe.

In this realization shall we be able to overcome the doctrines of the false prophets that have controlled the human race over two Millennia, since Jesus Christ walked the face of the earth in Galilee. The only relationship existing between us and the offices that these high places and altars occupy is: ‘Brotherhood of man universally’. We are all one and equal before our heavenly Father. You are a royal priesthood of the Holy One of Israel, in conscious oneness with Christ Jesus. To realize this truth is to love your neighbor as yourselves, regardless of the post the person may occupy in the organized establishments of the world.

Therefore, refer to no person as (Pope, Cardinals, Arch Bishop, Bishops, General overseers, Sheikh, Imams, Alfas, Pastors, High priest/priestess, Teachers, Masters, Dalai Lama, Lama,  Sad-guru, Monk, and Rabbi) but as brother or sister. Anything beyond brother or sister, you are sowing to the flesh and shall reap corruption. It may seem very difficult for you, but this is the narrow path that each person must follow to enter regeneration in Christ Jesus, judging the twelve tribes of Israel, the kingdom of God here and now. You must pull down all the religious high places and alters in consciousness, by realizing that the only Teacher, Mentor, Comforter is the Holy Spirit that indwells our being eternally.

Does this imply that you should not listen to any person occupying these high places and alters? No! However, whenever you listen to anybody, always rely on Holy Spirit to interpret for you what the true picture is, “Father please reveal to me the Light in the Word.” Even in reading the bible, Torah or any spiritual book, or even this piece you are reading this moment, please do not take any person’s word for it. Our Father, the Holy One of Israel wants you to inquire further, by consciously asking Him for more revelation; even if that piece is from brother Moses or brother John, please ask Holy Spirit that indwells your being to reveal to you the Truth as He revealed it to Moses and John. You must come to the same level of awareness as Moses and John in consciousness, by realizing that Holy Spirit is the only Teacher and Mentor, to see the burning bush or Christ Jesus that walks in the midst of the seven golden lamp-stand in every Word you read or listen to.

Please note that if brother Moses or brother John did not rely on the Holy Spirit, the WORD will not have come to them. Similarly, if our reliance is not on Holy Spirit, we could not decode the Word as revealed by Moses or John. It takes the same level of dependence on Holy Spirit to see the Light in the WORD. You Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me - (John 5:39)You must ask for the WORD, seek for the WORD, and knock for the WORD, Mathew 7:7. Our only goal in this human experience is to be one with Christ Jesus the begotten son of God. And Christ is Spirit, Therefore, you are Spirit in conscious oneness with Christ Jesus, who was, who is, and who is to come the Almighty.

This attitude (total dependence on the Father within for direction) is what makes the Bible, Torah, or any book that upholds the two divine commandments (You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. You shall love your neighbor as yourself) spiritual or holy. Our reliance and dependence must be on Holy Spirit always, not our mind. To rely on our mind in reading any book or listening to any teaching, makes that book or teaching unholy. On my own I can do nothing…John 5:30.

Furthermore, a conscious step must be taking, “Father I will not hear from any man but from thy Holy Spirit. I know you are no respecter of persons. Therefore, the Word you revealed to brother Moses, brother John, or brother Paul in the bible, please reveal IT to me this moment. I will not take brother Moses, brother John, or brother Paul’s word for it, but only your WORD, because you are the same yesterday, today and forever.”

Political high places and altars, in other words principalities, are in three folds: international, national, and local. They occupy these offices: President, Prime minister, King, Queen, Governor, legislature, Judiciary, Chief, Sultan, Emir e.t.c… To follow Jesus Christ in the regeneration, we must do exactly what Samuel did, by hewing Agag in pieces before the Lord in Gilgal. The king of the Amalekites in us, Agag, represents our belief in the political high places and alters as a form of protection, safety and fulfillment.

Our Father is the Almighty; Christ Jesus the reality of my being is the Lord of lords and the King of kings. There is no other ruler-ship in heaven and on earth than the conscious realization that Christ is in me and I am in Him. God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, above all principalities, powers, thrones, dominion in this world and in the world to come. Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light;

Now the question that might arise, “How do I overcome the influence of political high places and alters?” You must realize that they constitute the fruit of good and evil. So do not appropriate it, by realizing that the Holy One of Israel is the only Power and Authority over my life and the infinite universe. Never accord any power to any appearance. All Power is in God (Chukwu Okike Abiama); All Power is in Christ Jesus the begotten Son of God, who is the reality of my being. It is the power that you have placed in the political high places and alters that constitutes power over you, for good or for evil. Always place Power in God and Christ Jesus the reality of individual being. That way you come under divine Jurisdiction and Grace.

Financial High places and Altars: …………………………………………………………

Again, they are of three folds: international, national, and local. This is the wheel that drives the business and commerce of the world, whose lubricant is the American dollar ($). It comprises the followings: IMF, World bank, Central bank, and banking institutions. It is the fiery beast from the north, the destroyer of nations. Its head reaches up the sky and down, it strides slowly to the south, trampling on human beings with each of the foot covering more than one-third of the size of the earth just as an ant under the human feet.

It howls as it slowly matches on, with a groan reaching up to the ends of the earth, away from its intimidating presence the human race trembles… This beast has been the cause of every pain and death that mankind has ever experienced, is experiencing, and will experience.

The beast is the belief that money rules the world, that it is the source of fulfillment, outside the Holy One of Israel. Mankind worships the beast; the nations of the world are under its influence because they think that money is power. Consequently, mankind is perpetually in the whirlpool of pain and death, good and evil. It is the cause of war, man’s inhumanity to man, and every other ill condition in human experience. The love for money is the root of all evil. Is this to imply that money ($) in and of itself is evil? No! The focus is not to worship the beast, but to know the truth about the beast. Money is a slave and not a master, when you do not try to possess it, by realizing that the earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein.

Therefore, whatever money in your possession is not your own, but the Lord’s. We must go past the ten percent Tithe stipulated under the law to 100% stipulated under Grace. Under Grace, Tithing to God is based on our relationship with our heavenly Father: " ‘All is thine Father’ ". All ‘mine or my’ should be crossed out of consciousness; should be sacrificed upon Calvary. Everything you have belongs to God. Thus, our very will we must surrender to God; our very life we must lay down before God, if we must follow Jesus Christ in the regeneration, judging the twelve tribes of Israel...

Consciously, do not possess money, regardless of the billion or trillion of $ you might have in your account, the money is not yours but the Lord’s. You must show total fidelity to the Truth that the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. Only then will the beast ($) become your slave. If money becomes your master, then you are still appropriating the fruit of the tree of good and evil; you are still sowing to the flesh and shall reap corruption.

However, if you sow to the Spirit, by not possessing money but allowing it flow through you, by knowing that money is your slave and not your master, by knowing that everything you have is the Lord’s, then you shall reap life everlasting.

Let us realize that the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. Regardless of the seeming tempest and storm of lack and poverty that may rage in our experience, we must be un-wavered in the awareness that the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. We are sowing to the infinite, invisible, indivisible Spirit of our Most Loving Father (Chukwu Okike Abiama) ever present, and we shall reap life everlasting.

Finally, the last 'high places and alters' to pull down is your mortal self (Ekene Ezeike that believes he was born and will die, the man of flesh and blood); me must go to the cross of Calvary; me must go for the Beginning and End of God's creation, Christ to live my life. Thus as we dwell on the Truth that God is All; that Christ Jesus the begotten Son of God is my true Self, the high places and alters within us and the world around us dissolve. I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him. Ezekiel 21:27

The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
