Why Alleluia Is More Often Used Than Shalom In The Celestial Church

August 10, 2022 / Oladunjoye Olakunle Olaiya / Give & Take / 2 Comments »

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.

    Halleluyah is a form of greetings and salutations synonymous with the Celestial Church of Christ.
    ‘Ayo Ni o’ belongs to our brethren in the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement.
    My personal observation is that ‘Shalom’ as a form of greetings has crept into the CCC from those who have been to the Holy Land on Pilgrimage and want to show off. I have been to Israel too on Holy Pilgrimage. I used Shalom in Israel and no longer. I use the initials JP after my name to mean Justice of the Peace. And not Jerusalem Pilgrim.
    *Shalom is a Hebrew word meaning peace*, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare and tranquility and can be used idiomatically to mean both hello and goodbye.

    It would have been great to stick to the standard set in the church which is partly what was explained. However, trying to justify it by saying it was the language given to them in the garden of Eden is pushing the justification to an extent that cannot be corroborated. It is perfectly okay to greet by saying Hallelujah ( Praise the Lord) According to definition, peace to the Hebrews and in their language is an all encompassing word meaning health, wholeness, harmony, completeness, prosperity, welfare and tranquility. It’s a prayer and a blessing pronounced by them on one another.

    We on the other hand are worshippers and praise the Lord always, so…….. Hallelujah
