Different roles at different times

29 July 2013, 13:27 Onyeji Dominic

The Bible presented Jesus as a versatile and Supernatural creature. We read it and saw that he was an embodiment of goodliness and power. He possessed every good quality, and scriptures described his actions and personalities in comparison to many terms and creature.

This was because environment and situation are naturally meant to change man's name at every point in time. There were times when we saw Jesus acting like shepherd, dove, parrot, lion, raven, eagle, etc.

Jesus is a supernatural mystery. His name, actions and behavior are meant to go in variance with environment and situation. If you see Jesus with flock, call him shepherd. That is his name at that very point in time. If you see Jesus in jungle, call him Lion of Judea. That is his name at that point in time. 

Similarly, man was made in God's image and likeness. If you see me preaching on pulpit, call me a preacher. That is my name at that point in time. If you see me in garage or taxi, call me a passenger, and please, don't expect me to behave like preacher in a garage because a preacher is a preacher while a passenger is a passenger. They are different personalities (traits) in one entity or person.

Jesus and man are supernatural mysteries, and likewise, Biafra is seen as an entity in realms of contemporary jungle. The Jesus in Biafra now together with the humanitarian activists is lions in contemporary jungle. They are not shepherds because Biafra is not a sheep at a time like this. Ask the wise and quote me anywhere.
