Pastor Abel Damina, the Founder of Abel Damina Ministry, highlighted specific rites that believers should avoid in a YouTube video.
We learned from the Pastor in the video that Jesus Christ came to fulfill the Law by dying, burying, and rising from the dead, thereby freeing man from the Law.
According to the Pastor, God now lives in us through His son, Jesus Christ, Colossians 2:8-9.
The pastor believes these rituals are ‘plain nonsense’ according to Paul because they were practiced while mankind was still under the Law. He also added that it has become a tradition among men.
Pastor Abel Damina: “This tradition among men is what Paul tagged Idol fancies or plain nonsense: just like first fruit, just like tithe, practicing them as if you are under the Law. This is because the Law is fulfilled and shouldn’t been thought again.
“Because one person is doing it doesn’t make it right. The Book of Christian practice is the Bible, it is not ‘one man there did it so let me do it’. In Colossians 2:9, all the fullness of God dwells in Christ, not in bread and wine. The fullness of God is in a person, it is not in a ritual. Verse 10 of Colossians 2 says the completeness of God is in Christ.
“No ritual is required, no types and shadows are required. The New Testament is not a Testament of handkerchief as Mantle, it is not a Testament of Olive Oil as anointing, it is not a Testament of Water Baptism as symbolic to the death, burial and resurrection, it is a Testament of reality.
“Our anointing is a person and He lives in us; our mantle is a person, He lives in us, our bread and wine is a person, He lives in us. Therefore, Jesus is the Oil, Jesus is the Mantle, Jesus is a completeness of a deity in a bodily form and you are complete in Him.”
