Celestial, A Bible Believing and Based Church
it is very common to hear people frequently say celestial is not a biblical church or one lacking in biblical knowledge and they often spread this false notion that white garment churches are lacking in the word.
I do laugh because the CCC I know is endowed with a lot of divine mystery and insights into the world of God.
Celestial is not a ministry, or human agenda but an heavenly and divinely ordained church filled with Divine mystery, power and holy spirit which makes us unique and entirely different..
We are the generation that was given to know the secrets and mysteries of the word, by the divine inspiration of the Holy spirit and the undiscovered mass of wealth in the scriptures
All of us its tenets and liturgy are scripturally and spiritually rooted as the bible is always in agreement with the holy spirit
There is a difference between the knowledge of the word and having wisdom and understanding of the word.
CCC is not a church based on letters. We are based on practicality of the spirit and the word. Other churches are given letters but we are given the spirit and divine mystery.
There was an incident at makoko where a bible believing fellow came to challenge the church about some Bible knowledge of which no one could respond until baba bada of blessed memory came and defended the church accurately with Divine knowledge that the bible believing fellow was left astounded at the mystery of God.
You dont need to be a theologian to understand the word in CCC, the spirit teaches us all things that when we speak, it’s from heaven above.
We are not based on intellectual wisdom, if it were that, we have professors and doctors but we are on the divine wisdom of God which makes the wise foolish, and uses the foolish to confound the wise. Only few are given the grace to understand the things of Heaven.
We have been given to be custodians of the mystery of heaven which others seek forth to know.
I remember SBJO Oshoffa statement, A wa kin ka bibeli, emi to ko bibeli lan ka, literally meaning we read not a book or letters, but we read the divine spirit that wrote the Bible.
Even a professor of theology is just starting when it comes to mysteries of Heaven….it comes to us more naturally to understand the deeper knowledge and truth of the word of God.
We have blessed with sound teachers and preachers endowed with the wisdom of Heaven so it is sacrilegious to say we don’t know the bible.
We sing beautifully, we preach Christ, and we teach the mystery of heaven.
The drive and craving for the word of God is what is in the dispensation of celestial today.
The comprehension of CCC is beyond human understanding because it is divine above. We don’t need theology to know God in ccc, we relate with him directly and more closely, as with the spirit of God compounded with understanding. The Bible is our friend and reveals to us deep truths.
Every true celestial that wants to have a deeper knowledge of the word must have the Holy spirit first, the Bible and the hymnbook.
Many believe that CCC are drawy in the word of God, but I tell you if you come across us, you will marvel and be amazed at the mysteries of God.
It is in ccc that God uses the foolish things to confound the wisdom of the wise. What we are given in CCC is divine mystery coupled with biblical knowledge which is outstanding.
Bible study and expositions is done in various parishes of which we study in depth the word of God. We have several theologians and scholars in our midst but they submit to divine mystery and revelation. We are the generation of the likes of Stephen filled with spirit and power of God.
We tap into the wisdom of God in Christ which is revealed by the holy spirit. There is a difference between reading the Bible and decoding the mystery in the Bible. We speak mysteries like our Lord Jesus Christ that the world marvels at. The word and the spirit are merged together in ccc.
Celestial is not a church that is Bible illiterate but it is embedded with the divine mystery of God. The word of God is life, and is spirit.
