DIOTREPHES IN CELESTIAL CHURCH OF CHRIST

Diotrephes means Nourished by Jove

Jove means Jupiter I.e. god of sky. This is not surprising because a Diotrephes is highly disobedient based on the scripture…

Eph 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.

Diotrephes was a proud and arrogant church member.

The acts of Diotrephes is one of the habits/characters affecting CCC parishes in spiritual development. Some clergy and laity are Diotrephes.

They are fond of opposing the truth which will liberate a parish or individuals through sermons and prophecies.

Diotrephes in CCC love power and human recognition. They hate corrections and warning. They do not respect godly instructions from constituted authorities. They love attention.

9  I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.

Most Diotrephes are rebels. As laity, they oppose shepherds for no just reason and give them headache. They like to control shepherds. They can single handed execute the unjust transfer of a shepherd to any length.

As clergy, they intentionally violate doctrines and tenets with impunity.

They are politically close to people in the helms of affairs. They (as clergy) are hardly queried or transfered or punished when they commit atrocities (e.g. sexual immorality, embezzlement, charms) by the authority.

Many of them are orators, hence are very effective in making unwarranted accusations and spreading lies against whoever they are against.

10  Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.

Some laities and clergies who are Diotrephic in character end up becoming landlord shepherds and self acclaimed Pastors just to fully operate their Diotrephic mission. Note, not all landlord shepherds are Diotrephic in character.

Fractionalization in CCC has its source from the acts of Diotrephes in the church.

Are you a Diotrephes? Repent!
