LIVING CHRIST MISSION
The name Living Christ Mission was revealed and given to the church by God because of the mission He the Almighty God intends to use this universal church to accomplish on earth. The name LIVING CHRIST MISSION is the component of 3 spiritually connected names which are;
- God the Father
- God the Son
- God the Holy Spirit
Making up the TRINITY. Hence Trinity is the Origin of the name Living Christ Mission. Its connotative meanings and spiritual connections prove that Living Christ Mission is not just a unique church but a chosen church. Its doctrines and way of worship are centered on the word of God. Its constitution is the Holy Bible and the teachings are from God The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In other words Living Christ Mission is not just a church but a family that shields all children of God both members and non members, who have the kingdom of God at heart and strongly desire to make heaven. That is why Living Christ Mission cannot preach church, wealth, prosperity, but our believe is in the word of God which says "seek ye first his kingdom and his righteousness and all things shall yours as well" (Matthew 6:33). Prosperity and good things of life are found in God with 3 conditions and focus of the church, Salvation, Holiness and Righteousness and when wealth is from God it makes one rich and no sorrow is added to it. The name, Living Christ Mission was given to the Church/Ministry founded by Jehovah, The Most High God in 1983.
It was the Living God who gave it this name through His Son Jesus Christ. Before that day many names were suggested by people including members and non members of the church. Out of more than fifty (50) names that were suggested some of them were Temple of the Living Christ Mission, Temple of the Living Christ, Ekpere Hezekiah (i.e. Hezekiah's Prayers Mission), Church Hezekiah, Christ's Church, Living Christ Church, Church of the Living Christ, The Living Mission, Living Christ Mission etc. Majority of members including Trustees chose “Temple of the Living Christ Mission” one lecturer, a Mathematician, Late Dr. Nwamkpa from Nkwerre, Imo State was among those who chose Living Christ Mission and when I asked him why he said that, he answered that the abbreviation is simple LCM and from what he had seen it would be a universal church which would cut across all DENOMINATIONS including suiting every true Christian. In 1985 the trustees registered the church with the Federal Government of Nigeria with the name Temple of Living Christ Mission.
One Wednesday, in October 1985, before my Birthday/Convention when Christ and the four Holy Arch Angels came to visit me in my room at Inland Girls' Secondary School, Onitsha, I showed them the certificate with great joy. Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ told me to bring all the names people suggested when I brought them; He, with the four Holy Arch Angels looked at the names and He chose Living Christ Mission, and told me to re-register the church with the name “Living Christ Mission” (LCM). It was on another occasion when He visited me with only two Holy Arch Angels, Michael and Gabriel that He told me why He chose Living Christ Mission and its meaning.
THE MEANING OF LIVING CHRIST MISSION.
1. SPIRITUAL MEANING/INTERPRETATION Living Christ Mission represents the TRINITY.
- The First (1st) Being in the Trinity is God the Father, the Living God Almighty,
- the Second (2nd) Being in the Trinity is Christ, the Living Christ who is His Son and
- the Third (3rd) Being in the Trinity is the Holy Spirit who is the Messenger, who has a mission on earth.
Let me use these Bible passages to prove that God the Father is number One (1), God the Son is number Two (2) and God the Holy Spirit is number Three (3) and the three exist perfectly, co-operate, agree and love themselves.
“Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever he does, that the Son does likewise. For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all that he himself is doing; and greater works than these will he show him, that you may marvel."
I can do nothing on my own authority; as I hear, I judge; and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me.
"If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Counsellor, to be with you for ever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; you know him, for he dwells with you, and will be in you. But the Counsellor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. You heard me say to you, 'I go away, and I will come to you.' If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I go to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us go hence. Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counsellor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: "I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you”.(John 5:19-20,30, 14:15-17,26,28,31, 16:7-8,12-15).
Honestly, the Most High God is wise and knows all things. For example: a. If it was called Christ Living Mission, Christ would then be the 1st in the Trinity. God 2nd and Holy Spirit 3rd. b. If it was called Mission of the Living Christ, then Holy Spirit would be the 1st, God, 2nd and Christ 3rd. c. If it was called Living Mission of Christ, then God is 1st, Holy Spirit 2nd and Christ 3rd. Looking at the three (3) points above that is a, b and c, it is clear they do not represent the TRINITY correctly, only Living Christ Mission represents it accurately, hence, the Living Christ Mission is the name of this MUSTARD SEED which has now over grown beyond every imagination and human expectation to become a Mighty Church/Ministry. THE NUMBER “THREE” (3) Living Christ Mission is three words hence it concentrates on three most important things: Salvation, Holiness and Righteousness. Living Christ Mission is nineteen (19) letters. 1. God is three (3) letters 2a. TRINITY which is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit is made up of three (3) words. 2b. There are three (3) witnesses, the Spirit, the Water and the Blood and these three agree. “This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with the water only but with the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the witness, because the Spirit is the truth. There are three witnesses, the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree”. (1 John 5:6-8) 3.
Living Christ Mission (LCM) is made up of three (3) words 4a. The flag of Living Christ Mission is made up of three (3) colours:
- and red.
b. The three (3) main light created by God in the Bible are Sun, Moon and Stars “Thine is the day, thine also the night; thou hast established the luminaries and the sun. Thou hast fixed all the bounds of the earth; thou hast made summer and winter”. Genesis 16:16 (Genesis 16:14-16, Psalms 74:16,17) 5a. “OBI” that is my name is made up of three (3) letters b. Three (3) things needed for a seed to germinate (grow) are Sun (warmth), Air and Water. 6. Christ is “the Way, the Truth and the Life” three (3) words. “Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me”. (John 14:6) 7. Christ is the Light, the Truth and the Word “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ”. (John 1:5, 14, 17). 8. Christ is the Grace, Resurrection and the Life “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father. Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,” (John 1:14, 11:25).
Although there are many other examples I will stop at eight (8) because the words Emmanuel, God with us, Hezekiah, Holiness, Paradise etc are each of eight (8) letters. The above points about the NUMBER THREE shows that it is God HIMSELF who organised an important meeting in Heaven and they all decided and agreed that the name of the extension of His fellowship, church in Heaven should be and must be called Living Christ Mission. It is now clear to all why this church is unique (special) and why it will live forever by Jehovah's power and authority through Christ our Lord and Saviour, the only Son of God. MATHEMATICAL INTERPRETATION OF LIVING CHRIST MISSION (LCM). In Mathematics, L C M means “Lowest Common Multiple” which is the smallest number, two (2) or more numbers can divide without any remainder. For example, 12, 24, 48, 60 are multiples of 2, 3, 4 and 6, but the lowest multiple is 12, therefore the lowest common multiple (LCM) is 12 and not 24, 48 or 60. This fact shows how Living Christ Mission cuts across all denominations, hence, it is non denominational but UNIVERSAL. It accommodates all true children of God.
Any person who is truly born again, any rational human being with good conscience/morals will fit in including being very comfortable in it. Also in it (LCM) there is no levy therefore the rich, the poor, the less privileged, the common man etc could become members and worship their God very freely, happily and comfortably. No of letters in words. Living Christ Mission is made up of nineteen (19) letters that is:
- Living (6) + Christ (6) + Mission (7) =19
- Almighty (8) + Jesus Christ (11) = 19
- Hezekiah (8) + Jesus Christ (11) =19
- Emmanuel (8) + Jesus Christ (11) = 19
- God with us (8) + Jesus Christ (11) = 19 Note that Holiness is also made up of eight (8) letters.
- Michael (7) + Living Christ (12) = 19
- 7 representing 7 spirits of God, Gabriel, Raphael each is 7 letters + Living Christ (12) =19
- Uriel (5) + Almighty (8) + Christ (6) = 19
- Righteousness (13) + Christ (6) = 19
- Daddy Hezekiah (13) + Christ (6) = 19
- Mighty Hezekiah (14) + Jesus (5) = 19
- Jehovah (7) + (12) representing 12 tribes of Israel, 12 months in the year, 12 apostles etc = 19
- Righteous God (12) + Michael (7) = 19
- Our Saviour (10) + Salvation (9) = 19
Although there are many more examples but I will stop at the letter “N” because in the Alphabet A B C D … Z, the letters from A to N are 19 in number. Looking at the figures above and the ones you can form, it is clear that the name, “LCM” was chosen by God and it is from God and not man, blood or according to the will of man. God is indeed a Master Planner. For example the “Title, Twenty Four Elders of Heaven is Twenty Four (24) letters. Also Four Living Creatures is Nineteen (19) letters. Paradise is 8 letters while kingdom of heaven is 15 letters and all mentioned above are related to LIVING CHRIST MISSION.
