  • »THE BRIDE WITHOUT A WRINKLE

3DCover1

It’s indeed a great joy to present to you a book on wrinkles; wrinkles on the bride of Jesus, (Eph:5:27). This book is an important part of today’s Church growth as well as a place where many dreams and visions will be realised and released.

While writing the sage and comprehensive revelations of this book, my overwhelming reaction was, “I wish I had read a book like this before”Regrettably, I had to learn many of the topics covered here in real-time and often by making a mistake on the first attempt. In my experience, it is the challenges discussed in the earlier sections of this book that proved to be the minefields.

As Christians, we are blessed that when we repent, the blood of Jesus washes us from all uncleanness, but how do we deal with the wrinkles Paul talks about in Ephesians 5:27, and how do we get rid of them in order to be a splendid church that the Holy Spirit will present to the Father.

Unfortunately, there have been relatively few complete and analytical books on such a topic and I am honoured to bring revelations of the Holy Spirit and my years of experience as a Christian to this book. My connections and involvement with start-ups—ranging from now established churches like Baale Miracle Centre, to new ventures just delivering their first products like ‘Its Written Christian Church Baale’ —add a tremendous amount of spiritual insight and relevance.

One of the most impressive aspects of this book is its broad coverage of the challenges involved in salvation and I am pleased to see that building and maintaining a constant relationship with the Holy Spirit is a critical issue in removing wrinkles from the Bride of Christ. It’s my prayer that the material covered in this book will help prevent future irrational behaviour that causes them.

Finally, “The Bride without a Wrinkle” is about putting together a solid Godly plan for the Church, including growth and stability strategies. Of course, many topics are crucial, and they are often the sole or dominant topics of the Church today, but unless the challenges of wrinkles on the Bride of Christ are overcome, it is unlikely that a revival, even if well planned, will be successful.

With this book, I believe many will get to share the extensive and deep insights of the Holy Spirit on this epic topic that grooms Jesus’ bride and shapes His Church today.

Against this background, I invite you to explore for yourself what are the wrinkles, how do we get them and how do we get rid of them in order to be a glorious splendid Bride that the Holy Spirit will present to the Groom.

»Another Helper the Holy Spirit of God (coming soon)

It is said that every journey begins with a single step; my salvation journey is not any different. It started in March, 1982 when a guerrilla war was being waged throughout the Central part of the Country.

We lived a life I would liken to nocturnal submarines; hiding all day and resurfacing at night. As a Ugandan proverbs says, “When the birds start flying higher, the hunters learn to shoot higher”, the soldiers learnt our trick and started invading our houses during the nights. It was devastating. It wasn’t until I remembered my Christian mother’s words, “Nothing is too hard for God”, that I felt a new hope rising in me.

Inspired by these comforting words, I decided to go to Pastor Simeon Kayiwa, that he may pray for me as through him, God was performing miracles and wonders in people’s lives, and partly through his work a great revival was shaping the nation.

 

»ANOTHER HELPER; THE HOLY SPIRIT (under development)

All over the world, people are looking for help. When a child is born, it needs help to grow. When ones goes to a foreign country, they quickly have to learn how to politely ask for help. When someone gets lost, what they need most is assurance that help is on the way.

Humans have invented machines to help in as many ways as possible. These days in every modern kitchen, you will find a dish washer to help wash up the dishes. In the laundry, washing has been made easy by the help of washing machines. Cars, planes and even bicycles have been invented to help humans reach places they would otherwise never have dreamed of going. At school, we need the help of the teachers to excel. Married couples need the help of the experienced to stay connected. In whichever way you may look at it, we all need the help of another to achieve our goals.

In the same way, when God created Adam, He saw that he needed help in order to fill the earth and subdue it. Alone he was lonely and God saw that it was not good for him. He therefore made him a helper comparable to him, Genesis 2:18,

“And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him”.

Adam needed a helper to perform the hard task before him. The Hebrew word for helper is Ezer, meaning a “helper like unto God”. On CBN website, Professor David Eckman, Senior Lecturer at Kesed Seminars, in his article “Woman: Man’s Helper or Slave?” says, “When God provided a helper for Adam, He used a glorious Hebrew word for helper: Ezer and it means “helper like unto God”. Describing Ezer, David quotes the Hebrew bible,

Then the Lord God said, ‘It is not a beneficial thing for the man to be alone. I will make for him an Ezer who is his complement or equal”. 

Greg and Lizzie and SophiaThis shows us that when God provided a helper to Adam, He made her like unto Himself; that is in His own image, but equal to Adam in order to bring a substantial help to him. Unfortunately, many times when we see the word ‘helper’, we think of some one of a lower status and many believe that God created Eve lower than Adam. But it is not soEzer was a helper like unto God, comparable to Adam.

We all know that when one looks for a helper, one looks for a strong one, not a weak one, otherwise why would one need one? For instance, if you needed a guard, you would not look for a weak one, as he would not be able to defend you in times of trouble. In the same way, God did not provide a weak helper to Adam. The helper had to be strong, or even stronger than Adam himself to bring a significant help to him.

Ezer as Professor David says is a divine word to designate Eve, humanity’s first helper. This then brings us to the conclusion that Ezer Eve or helper Eve was  a God-like gift to Adam; strong and perfect. Without her, Adam was lonely and still waiting. She was to comfort him, keep him company, encourage him, and stand with him in obedience to the Word of God. In other words, the Ezer’s basic responsibility was to help Adam fulfil God’s mandate on earth. Adam needed her and without the Ezer, Adam was incomplete. She was his strength and his fulfilment.

Twice in the Old Testament is Eve referred to as Ezer, Gen 2 verses 18 and 20 and in both instances it was before the fall. This is because after the fall which is in the next chapter, the Ezer ceased to be a strong helper. Because of sin, she had plummeted from a strong helper to a weaker helper, thus the words of Peter in 1 Peter 3:7, “She is the weak vessel”. Because of sin, the Ezer was now to be ruled over by the man she was created to be equal to, “Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you”. Sin paralyses us, sin immobilises us, sin disorganises us, sin misplaces us and sin gives us names.

On seeing her after the fall, Adam did not mess with words by trying to cover up his feelings but this time he called her Eve, a prophetic insight meaning mother of creation. Eve became Eve after the fall. She was Ezer all along. With Ezer weakened, she could not perform to full potential her original duties ie to gird, surround, and hence defend Adam. Because of this, God Himself decided to move in and fill up the gap, becoming man’s strong helper, Israel’s helper in times of trouble. That is why we see the word ezer used many times in the Old Testament referring to God as Israel’s strong helper or strong Ezer like in Psalms 46:1, Psalms 108:12, Psalms 115:9, Psalms 118:7.

On their website, www.godswordtowomen.org  “God’s Word to Women  describing God as the Ezer, the writer points out that the context of every use of the word ezer in the scripture refers to God or military allies. The writer continues and says that in all cases, the one giving the help is superior to the one receiving the help. I believe it too, as in every way, God is Supreme to us. Any form of aid He offers is superior. I can liken it to someone with a headache taking normal nurofen to fight it. If with time normal nurofen fails to bring the pain down, the doctor will prescribe you a much stronger one, say nurofen plus. In the same way, after the Ezer had failed, a stronger aid was needed to be able to bring a significant help to both Adam and Eve, this time not Adam alone.

3DCover2With the help of the LORD I have brought forth a man”, Gen 4:1, NIV . Yes, God moved in and became the first couple’s helper, Israel’s superior and strong helper.

But it was a temporary position that was waiting for the rightful person at the right time. After the fall, everything pointed to the future. Even Adam calling his wife mother of creation was pointing to the future.

And the future will always come no matter how long it may take. Because of His abundant love for mankind, God gave man a second chance and reprogrammed the beginning. There is no third chance or forth chance or fifth chance with our Father because He does not keep a record of any sin, Psalms 130:3. If there was a third or fourth chance, that would mean He is keeping a record of our sins. But in Him every chance is a second chance as His mercies are new every morning, Lamentations3:22-2. He does this that we may learn to fear Him, Psalms 130:4 and in Him, there is no last chance. Despite this, as Paul says in Romans 6, we should not continue to sin that His grace may abide.

As I said, out of this abundant love and mercy, Jesus the very word that Adam and Eve disobeyed in the garden became flesh, as John says in John 1:1, and came to us as second Adam or another Adam, Corinthians 15:45,

“The first man, Adam, became a living person. But the last Adam—that is, Christ—is a life-giving Spirit. What comes first is the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later. Adam, the first man, was made from the dust of the earth, while Christ, the second man, came from heaven” NLT.

In believing this Word rather than doubting it as the first couple did, one breaks away from Adam’s disobedience which results into death, to Christ’s obedience which gives life. Which means that when God give us Christ as the second Adam solved the Adam part, or finished Adam’s legacy, for Jesus is the second Adam, but what about the Ezer part or the helper’s part? What about Eve’s legacy as the Ezer, the strong helper?

You may ask what about God Himself being Israel’s strong helper? Yes as I said, God was Israeal’s strong helper in times of trouble (Yahweh Sabbaoth) as He would never abandon us but He was filling in the gap as Israel waited for redemption. And besides, during that time God was a Helper to Israel alone. The whole world needed a helper as much as it needed a Saviour, not only Israel.

Let me put it this way; if God was kind enough to give us a second Adam, or another Adam, He had to be fair enough to give us a second Ezer or another Helper, or else His solution to the problem would not balance as the only way Adam was complete was with Eve, the Ezer. In other words, the Eve part would be left hanging thus giving the enemy another chance.

But our God is a loving Father, He leaves nothing unfinished. He finishes whatever He starts and His work is always perfect. To solve this, God had to provide another helper or a second helper and this Jesus Himself declared in John 14:16,

“I will ask the Father to give you Another Helper that he may abide with you forever.  He is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He will be with you and will be in you”.

Here, we see Jesus’ promise of the Holy Spirit as the “Another Helper”, and I would like to draw your attention to the word “Another Helper”. Jesus using the word “Another” clearly signifies that there was a helper before and this is Eve the Ezer, “And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him”.

In proper grammar no one would use the word “another” unless they were referring to a previous of the same kind. I am not English but I believe one does not have to be English to work this out. When the Holy Spirit pointed out to me the use of the word “Another”, I was amazed. Going to my husband, I asked him when would one use the word another. To him, it was obvious and he said, “When referring to a previous thing of the same kind”. For instance, if I said to a friend, “I bought another red dress”. She would definitely know that I had bought another one of the same kind before and I believe she would ask, “What happened to the other one?” or “Can I see the other one as well”.

In the same way, Jesus referring to the Holy Spirit as “Another Helper” was not a mistake. He knew very well that there was another helper before the Holy Spirit and that was Eve the Ezer, Adam’s wife. I want you to keep in mind that I am not saying that the Holy Spirit is Eve, but what I am saying is that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is the same ministry as that which was originally for the Ezer. I want you also to remember that Eve was not Eve until after the fall. She was created to help Adam rule the earth and subdue it. She was the Ezer, the helper which is a ministry and the church today is in the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

We can also put it this way. If you came to my place and I give you a driver called John. After six months, John resigns or dies or quits and I give you another driver called Mary, Mary would not be John though she would be doing the works that John was doing for you. But that does not make her John. In the same way, the Holy Spirit to be our helper does not make Him Eve but He is doing the ministry of Ezer that Eve was created to do.

Man needed Another Helper who would never compromise truth for deception, a helper who would stand against the wiles of the enemy. And this is the Holy Spirit of God. Like Eve the first helper who was created comparable to Adam, the ‘Another helper’ the Holy Spirit is comparable to Jesus Himself the second Adam but incomparable to man. With the Holy Spirit in us, we are complete, just as Adam was complete with none but Ezer the helper.

It is said that the first casualty of war is the truth. This is quite right, as according to the bible, during the battle between Adam and satan, the first thing the devil attacked was the truth of the word of God, convincing Eve that what God told them was not true. That is why Jesus told the disciples that He would send them the Spirit who is to reveal the truth of God thus bringing to surface the lies of the devil.

The ministry of the Holy Spirit as Another Helper is the ministry God had designed Eve the first helper to do. The strength of Adam was Eve and the ministry of Eve was to help Adam just as the strength of every child of God today is the Holy Spirit. Paul says in Ephesians 6:10, Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might”. Without the Holy Spirit, we can do nothing for God and without Him; we cannot see God’s power manifested in our lives and ministries. Without the Holy Spirit, things become mechanical, turning into religion.

It was not only the Ezer who lost her position but Adam too lost his natural power to rule the earth. After the fall, He had to exert by force his authority and power over anything to get the results he desires as the enemy had come so close to him than at any time. For the first time in his life, there was need to keep eye out for danger. The horse had to be subdued in order for him to ride on it. The ground could not yield its abundance to him but through toil and sweat as God said

“In toil you shall eat of it All the days of your life”, Gen 3:17. And in verse 19, “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread”.

When you look deep into this toil and sweat, you will discover that God was referring to prayer. Adam had to toil and sweat in prayer to get results of anything. And in Gethsemane, Jesus the second Adam toiled in prayer to the extent of sweating blood so that you and I would become children of God. Today, we too have to toil in prayer for God’s will to be done on earth as it is done in heaven. But we cannot do it on our own strength. We need the Helper, the Holy Spirit to intercede for us for we do not know how to pray,

“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered”.

As in the garden it is stated that God saw that Adam was alone and therefore needed a companion, Jesus also saw that once He is gone, we shall be alone which makes one vulnerable.  So Jesus said in John 14:18, “I will not leave you orphans, I will come back to you”. Without the Holy Spirit, we are alone, powerless and vulnerable like an orphan, open to all the attacks of the enemy. Eve was a God given gift for Adam just as today the Holy Spirit is a God given gift to the church.

As we saw in 1 Corinthians 15:45 that the natural body comes first, then the spiritual comes later, “What comes first is the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later”, the first helper Eve came first as a natural body and the second helper the Holy Spirit came later as a Spirit. Adam the first man was made from dust of the earth, while Christ the second man came from heaven. To this, Ezer the first helper was made from dust while the Holy Spirit is infinite, from God Himself.  As God took Adam’s own rib to make Ezer the first human helper, on Pentecostal day God gave us His Spirit to be with us forever, Acts 2:4.

At the right time the second Adam came, and later at a right time, the second helper or the Another Helper the Holy Spirit came. God restored the beginning and there is now no difference between male and female, we are all filled with the Holy Spirit, Galatians 3:28. With the Holy Spirit in us, we are strong in the Lord in the power of His mighty, Ephesians 6:10 .

In conclusion, Ezer Eve was the first helper. After failing, God sent us Another Helper, the Holy Spirit and hence, the title of my next book; “Another Helper; the Holy Spirit.
