For the fact that we speaks our dialects during our services in CCC doesn’t make us illiterates or that we don’t know the right from the left.
There are several times I asked myself this questions about the rules and tenet that has never changed in Celestial Church (Ofin ati Ilana ijo mimo ko yi pada) and I have come to realize the so called tenet already been twisted to suits personal interests of some set of people.
I want you to get it right, the rules and tenet still remain the same. I will only point out few things on how some people have twisted it.
I have discovered some set of people so much hate truth to be spoken out to them; if you speak reality that doesn’t suit their wayward lifestyles they begin to criticize you with all kinds of harsh words backing it up with tenets. Anyway, by their fruits you shall know them (Their time will soon be up).
Our harvest has become a venue where members are now celebrating alcoholic drinks (The tenet will never appears there) but when you try to correct their wrongdoings, someone will raise eyebrows saying “Ilana” ni.
Something happened of recent that I saw, it is unspeakable (I want to be guided by this writing, so I will not talk about it) but let me sound it out loudly to those of you who go to beer parlour with our precious garment, be warned.
Secondly, I believe the tenet should put a FULL STOP to different titles that are coming out on a daily basis. One of the major problems we are facing in this church today is the issue of ranks, and yet people are still rushing for it.
If you like wear Black and Blue colour and put purple green cross bar on it, you can never sit at the back of the altar. What is wrong with human mentality? Some people will even be fighting for standing at your back while entering or going out after service, only just to prove they senior you in ranks.
Listen carefully, it is not about the rank you carry that matters, but rather the lives you have positively affected, the lives you have touched or blessed with the word.
I have seen a sister who doesn’t have any ranks in this church and her work is 100% acceptable than Mother Celestial, so also I have seen a brother in this fold that are 10, 000 times better than all sort of ranked men.
I hope you remember one of the greatest Concert in Celestial Church of Christ “Luli concert” organized by committed brothers and sisters alikes, the convener of that event is an ordinary brother, so who are you with your high rank?
I believe very soon, we will run out of colours for ranks and begin to wear Black and Red for the newly ranked members in the church.
My dear brethren, I indulge you to get wisdom, don’t be carried away with issues of ranks but let us work for the unity and the glory of this church.
I am not going against any ranks, but be careful so that at the end of the journey your worldly rank will not stand against you on the judgment day.
May God bless us as we make amendment in Jesus name (Amen)
I am Fisayo Joel.
