CCC BAMAH AND BIBLICAL BAMAH.
I went to a bible study and the shepherd taught that day that the Eli Bamah we call is very wrong as it means idol, i was perplexed and wondered where this was coming from
The word ‘Bamah has been causing a lot of controversies in ccc as regards to its meaning in the Bible and the Celestial constitution. Biblically, Bamah pronounced /ba-ma/, plural /Bamot/, means to be high, an elevation, high place and height. Biblical archeology and theology tells us that Bamah or Bamot are worship sites that are usually contained in an altar, an high place where sacrifice are offered when we commit sins – sins of worshiping an Idol. Ezekiel 16:24, Jeremiah 26:18. Most high places mentioned in the Bible are called Bamah in the Hebrew context. Other words for it are Bamoth, meaneth in Hebrew tongue.
The Bible specifically mentions and names it in Ezekiel 20:29, Then I said unto them, what is the high place whereunto ye go? And the name thereof is called Bamah unto this day. KJV. Bamah is simply an high place for worship. Now the Celestial Bamah, according to the Constitution and The Order of Service, as revealed, contains certain Holy Names which usually precede reading from the books of Psalms. The meanings of some of these Holy Names are given below:-
Eh-Yibah – Oluwa Alanu
Eli-Yah – Oluwa Olorun
Eli – Bamah – Yabah -Oluwa -Omo Emi – Michael
Agashadual – Oba Olusegun
Jehovah Jecho Hirami – Oba Olubukun
Section 96 constitution. Bamah means ‘Son of Spirit’. This is where there have been alot of controversies, false teachings and confusions in ccc, as regards the Holy name, ‘Eli Bamah Yabah’ which means ‘Lord, Son of Spirit, Holy Michael’. My question now is how does the biblical Bamah mean the same as the Celestial Bamah? For instance my name is tola, in the Bible we have one tola in Judges 10:1, the son of Puah, from the tribe of issachar. Does our name mean the same? Let’s be in spirit please brethren. Bamah is an heavenly language, a celestial language from heaven above, given by the holy spirit to celestial church of Christ, to call on God at appropriate times.
Constitutionally what i found was Eli Bamah yabah and that was what was written there.
I came across a very old celestial order of service during sunday school days, findings then made me know it was released in in ’83.
It had on it Eli-Bama-Yabah for sunday, wednesday and friday. The conjunction Eli Bamah and Eli Yabah I haven’t seen in the Constitution or order of service.
The usage would mean Eli Bamah, lord son of spirit, Eli Yabah lord holy michael. I pray the Holy spirit direct and guide us to know the truth in ccc. We are subject to corrections and the truth. The Board of trustees should take note of this so that false teachings and doctrines won’t spread in ccc. Halleluyah.
