The Superiors of Inferiority
One of the ranks of great and high spiritual function in the structure of celestial church is the Superior ranks, Superior leader, Superior Woleader and Superior Evangelist
God in the wisdom and mystery had given the ranks indicating growth and spiritual development to celestial church, not by the design of man or intellect but by revelation with utmost precision and description for the church.
Robes, regalia and functions, meaning were all revealed under the auspices of the Holy spirit to the blessed memory of the Pastor Founder, Saint SBJ Oshoffa(1909-1985) who never for once leaned on his own wisdom or understanding but as directed and revealed.
Sadly today, the Superior Evangelist is the most bastardized rank in the Celestial fold. Easily accessible without any trace of spiritual growth so long you have the cash to pay, you will get the rank you want.
In the position of the Early Celestial, the Superior evangelist rank was given to dedicated, devoted, committed, signed for life elders and not just members of the church. This are men with impact, imprints, contribution and participants in the legacy, and mission of the church.
Sadly again, this is the rank that is given to every dick and harry that can afford the money making avenues generated out of it. So much stigma and disrespect has being given to this rank that it is seen as nothing today.
Statistically, High numbers of clergy and laity ranging 70%of the church are all superior evangelists
The Superior Evangelist rank has experienced a downside in spiritually and is as common today as a second hand cloth at Yaba market in Lagos.
Come to the Annual imeko Christmas Convocation, you will see flocks of superior evangelist once you lift your eyes to the altar.
During the days of SBJ Oshoffa, the Superior Evangelists were few in number because they were devoted, spiritually matured and deserving men
It’s so detrimental that you will find a non clergy, aged 28 putting on the Superior Evangelist regalia, a regalia denoting high authority and spirituality.
The Superior Evangelist regalia was one which pride our heart each time our fathers SO Ajanlekoko, Agbaossi and Agbaossi wore it filled with the anointing and power of the Holy spirit.
This where men who dedicated, committed, surrendered their lifetime to the lord fully and were spiritually matured.
Superior Evangelist regalia is a symbol of an Eagle soaring above the highest heights of the sky, undisturbed and unlimited.
But today, we have a superior syndrome in the millennium celestial era.
Once you have the finance or money, other spiritual requirements are null and you are given the rank of a superior.
We are using money to buy the gift and anointing of God and this is causing spiritual immaturity and inferiority in our superior evangelist who now pay exorbitant amounts of money to get this rank.
You can buy the cloth and the rank, but you can never buy the anointing.
This superior syndrome has caused the addition and increase of ranks lacking spiritually but are coined in carnality.
We have forgotten that each rank given to us was revealed to SBJ Oshoffa but we have fitted in ours to make more profit of carnality.
So many with superior regalia and few with the anointing.
After all more ranks can be generated and created to suit our selfish desires
this is what has happened to the Superior Evangelist today.
Exteriorly, we see a superior evangelist rank and regalia
Ulteriorly, it was gotten from selfish and unspiritual means
Interiorly, there is lack of anointing and power, and authority.
Many will be candidates of the lake of fire and heavenly questioning because they have bribed to receive the power and authority of the Holy spirit.
We are in an era of so many inferior men of God flanked in superior evangelist regalia. They are the sheep in wolf clothing devouring the people of God with their inferiority.
High high rank, low low spiritually
This is why we lack men that have the anointing, power and authority of the Holy spirit like SBJ Oshoffa was. They are a faded shadow of the power of God.
Many shepherds today are being warned by spiritual revelation to desist from this regalia and go back to their true rank.
If you put on the Superior Evangelist rank without being spiritually anointed, appointed and qualified for it, the spirit of God says you are wearing a fire that will burn you severely
The Superior Evangelist rank was one of integrity, devotion and fully pledged life to Christ.
Now it is one necessary to be seen as a Shepherd or to be recognised as one.
The point and stand of evangelist has really been thrown into shambles when people lacking the word of God and anointing of the spirit are gowned as superiors.
