Every denomination has a distinctive method of identifying or method of making small talk. The CCC is well renowned for our distinctive greeting of “Alleluia” whenever we run across other Brethren.
Alleluia and Shalom may resemble one another in some ways, yet they mean different things. Because Alleluia is a heavenly language, a sign of greetings in Heaven, Jehovah-Nissi gave it to us. In the Garden of Eden, this was originally handed to Adam and Eve. When the Lord came to visit them in the garden, it was how they would greet him. Alleluia!
Before being escorted from the garden, they witnessed firsthand how worship is conducted in paradise. Many of us are heavenly citizens before we are sent into the world to redeem it. Revelation Chapter 19 verse 1 and Ephesians Chapter 1 verses 3-5.
Every time we begin a greeting with Alleluia, we are carrying out what John commanded in Revelation 19.
According to biblical accounts, the Jews exchange pleasantries with Shalom. This greeting with Shalom was brought to the Celestial Church of Christ by some preachers and teachers and I do not think it is acceptable in CCC.
Everyone ought to uphold the standards set by the Almighty God. Elijah, Esther, Daniel, Jeremiah, Solomon, Joseph, Paul, Peter, and others were clothed with celestial splendour and honour while they were on earth. Both on earth and in heaven, they were revered.
