Luli, the grace of Christ, and it’s function to aid salvation.
A friend of mine asked a posing question that what was the need of Luli, when God says grace abide with us already, and that does it mean celestial has more grace than other churches.
I tried to explain to him that “luli luli, ore ofe de” signify the grace that came with CCC to aid its mission in the world.
One of the important thing to God is the salvation of our soul… This salvation came at the cost of Christ coming to die for our sins. This was priceless and most important.
It would please God if all of mankind be saved from eternal damnation but still the stronghold of the devil and the rebellion of man against its creator makes many destined to perish just like Judas.
This is why grace to perfect our imperfection is given because we cannot meet the standard of God.
This is why God extends the hand of grace to save all…
He bends the hand of judgment down to an extent and postpones it in mercy so the least of mankind can be saved yet man rejects even this.
Luli is a symbol of sufficient grace for even the most wicked of man.
Luli came to give salvation to even the condemned of man to even the ends of the earth.
Luli is Salvation concerned for all. Luli is like an analogy of grace for everyone.
It came to bring all mankind to salvation by all means.
Luli cares not rejection but salvation.
Luli came to make salvation equal for all men, to ensure all men are saved and no one missing in salvation or didn’t come across salvation.
Luli is not concerned about how I was saved but that I was saved.
Luli saw that man was attuned to the ways of the world, so even extended grace to even the arena of what man craves.
Then the herbalist uses materials and items etc for the salvation of many from troubles.
Christ in Luli gracified materials for usage to counter the herbalist and fetish ways and bring souls to believe in his salvation
Christ saw that man believed in what he saw and what to use.
Christ in luli again came into the materials to yield faith.
Material usage constitutes partial salvation in Christ, which will lead to complete salvation in Christ.
There are two stages in luli
The stage of partial salvation in the symbolism of Christ in materials.
Then the complete salvation which is the onlook to focus on Christ only the way to salvation.
God was trying to reach man by every way just as devil trys to mislead man in all manner.
So that at the end, no one would say or give excuse that salvation came not.
Luli is not trying to teach us to dwell on spiritual materials for spiritual works, a representation of the salvation of Christ.
This are partial salvation in Christ,
The real salvation is to follow Christ which is evident afterwards
One of our songs says, opo enia lo ku, ni ailaini Jesu meaning many have died without having Christ.
The correlation of Luli and the commission of the church, is evident,
Many nominal Christians having problems go fetish and to herbalist for help, and at death are marked spiritually by devil.
Gracified by luli, those problems are solved by representations and symbols of Christ salvation, in the name of Christ(partial Salvation for the souls from problems)
After the problem is solved, behold, the way of Christ, the complete and only salvation is shown.
All this are seen in a typical celestial church.
Luli says, problem is solved first, then the way to salvation in Christ.
Any celestial that goes to the fetish is insulting the abundant grace of God (luli)
A simple analogy, if you believe a jar of oil can heal in the name of Christ, then you are believing in Christ not the oil (partial salvation).
Then you realized that the oil did not save you but it was Christ who did (Complete salvation)
Luli came to extend the grace of God to all mankind, to the least of mankind so that no one would give excuse of haven’t experienced salvation in Christ one way or the other.
To the Christians that believe in Christ and only him without seeking other, we are saved.
To the one led to Christ by a representation of Christ to Christ himself, the main purpose at the end is Salvation.
