WHO IS MASTEMA?
“Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him”… Exodus 23:20-21
Very many things happened in the Bible which their meanings are not known to average Bible readers. The same thing with some hidden names which we suppose to know but to no avail. Because Bible as a book of books is not so explicit. Hence the study of it theologically.
One of such is the reference above which the Holy One of Israel Himself specifically warned the Israelites to be very careful with Him, because He would not forgive them. And as a no-nonsense Spirit who doesn’t look down, talk less to look at man’s face. He has no pity or compassion for man. He was the One the Holy One of Israel chose to follow the stubborn nation Israel in the wilderness even up to the promised land of Cannan.
Whether the Israelites had forgotten that He was following them. In Numbers 11:1-3, the people offended the Spirit by murmuring as against God’s warning this: ” And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD (MASTEMA): and the LORD heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire 🔥 of the LORD burnt among them,…” Before Moses the servant of God reached there, a lot of them had died.
Mysteriously, the Spirit is fully back in the altars of Celestial Church of Christ world wide. The Holy One of Israel has stationed Him on the right side of the thrones (altars) to deal with the filthy members who refused to stop siting in the altar as against the will of God. Before warned is before harmed. Obedience is better than sacrifice. Shalom! HALLELUYAH! HALLELUYAH! HALLELUYAH!
