“A man of God” (1 Samuel 9:6)

Just as there exist true prophets who are “A man of God” living under His commandment and rule, many false prophets defying the Lord’s law have resided in this world these days. History recites their existence from the era of Prophets, Apostles and still in this generation.

“Do not be Lukewarm!”

Our lives are amid the trials of cold, hot or lukewarm. Saint John described these three circumstance as “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.” (Revelation 3:15-16)

The Twenty-Four Heavenly Priests, Saint Seraphim

The Heavenly Priests, Saint Seraphim are the highest hierarchy in the tribe of the Angel’s World, the closest to God, which the Book of Synaxarium refers them as, “The Twenty-Four Elders.”

“Man shall say, Zion is my mother” (Psalm 86:5)

The Holy, the sacred and abode of God, Zion, is most celebrated in our country, for we are bestowed the Ark of the Covenant on Hidar 21 in Ethiopia, Axum city, the home of our Holy Mother Saint Mary.

Ark of the Covenant is the abode of God and so is Saint Mary, the Mother of God. No creature could ever be close to the Lord as our Holy Mother. Even the four beasts who carry the throne of God were not able to carry the Lord as Holy Mother Saint Mary did in her womb. For this, she is bestowed the gift of “Mercy of Covenant” for the salvation of people who believe in her prayer, intercession and mediation. Prophet David said, “Man shall say, Zion is my mother” and thus we shall call upon her in time of destitutions. (Psalm 87:5)

“A Man of God” (2 Samuel 9:6)

Saint Prophets are “A man of God” who are real people and speak the truth which it is instigated just as their words. In the Book of Samuel, I, it is stated as, “Look now, there is in this city a man of God, and he is an honorable man; all that he says surely comes to pass. (1 Samuel 9:6)
