THE BASICS OF KENEZIANISM, a.k.a. INTEGRATIONAL SPIRITAN MOVEMENT THAT WE NEED TO ENTHRONE A LASTING GLOBAL PEACE IN THIS OUR DIGITALISED GLOBAL VILLAGE

THE BASICS OF KENEZIANISM THAT IS ALSO KNOWN AS INTEGRATIONAL SPIRITAN MOVEMENT THAT WE NEED TO ENTHRONE A LASTING GLOBAL PEACE IN THIS OUR DIGITALISED GLOBAL VILLAGE


THIS IS THE ETERNAL PRACTICE OF INTEGRATIONAL SPIRITAN MOVEMENT

THESE FOUNDATION PILLARS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL PRACTICE OF INTEGRATIONAL SPIRITAN MOVEMENT WHICH WERE DICTATED TO DR JIDEOFO KENECHUKWU DANMBAEZUE AS A GUIDE FOR THE PRACTICE OF SPIRITUAL FELLOWSHIP FOR ALL NATURAL SCIENTISTS POISED TO ENTHRONE A LASTING WORLD PEACE IN OUR DIGITALISED GLOBAL VILLAGE. IT WAS & IS THE DIVINE DICTATIONS FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD THE ALMIGHTY CREATOR OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE. IT LASTED FROM 11/03/2004 FROM AND ENDED ON 11/03/2014 @ 01:11:39 HRS GMT
        From 1963 when the earthly animator was in his year two in secondary school till 2003 when he began his crusade to sanitise Christendom marked the THEORY epoch of the divine revelations he received from above that demarcates temporal development of ISM.

        From 11th March 2004 to now; March 11th 2014 delineates the development of the divinely revealed details of the eternal PRACTICE of the international crusade to enthrone a global crusade to usher in a lasting global fellowship for a global peace in our digitalised global village.

        From 11th March 2014, be it known that as there were no recorded rituals when the Almighty Creator engineered the Entire Universe nor were there any informing us of any liturgical rites when Adam arrived on Planet Earth, so shall there be NO MAN-MADE RITUALS at the birth or the death of all genuine and wise progeny of that Adam.



THE DIVINE OVERVIEW OR MISSION SATEMENT

1.   All the fables, legends, doctrines and dogmas of every shade had all along been used by reprobate demagogues to hoodwink mankind into providing a select few with easy lifestyle at the expense of the teeming population of men and women that had been brainwashed and programmed to fear death and the UNKNOWN by idolatrous rituals.

2.  Refresh the minds of all new converts to this integrational fellowship of true and wise children of the Almighty Creator of the origin of religion revealed to our earthly Chief Servant a.k.a. Animator International thus;

“Religion was/is a superstitious search by humanity for its origin, existence, meaning and relevance before the scientific era. The search was led by acclaimed sages among the elders of a community who defined its theories and practices. It is later ratified and recommended for legislation and implementation by state apparatus by convincing stratagem or coercion by politico-religious leaders. Thereafter, it is fine tuned and administered by ordained priests and priestesses who hand it down along ancestral lineages from one generation of lukewarm adherents, fanatics and mystics to another. Gradually, strong personalities emerge claiming divine appointment and so pull strong followers who idolise them as role models with supernatural powers. This obsession confirms them as beacons of adulation and finally leads to clannish hero-worship or full scale idolatry.  Therefore, my studied summation stands until it is disproved, I stoically assert that Religion, which is superstition sanctioned by the state, is actually an addiction to man-made doctrines and dogmas invented, patented and copyrighted by a few demagogues.
·        It enslaves the mind more than psychoactive drugs,
·        Benumbs human creativity and resourcefulness thereby
·        Restricting the development of the human potential and capital.
It is the main cause of poverty of the mind and underdevelopment of third world countries as its side-effects are indolence, redundancy, laziness and dependence on finished products and services. In the final analysis, it is the predisposing factor to lack of initiative, debilitating ignorance, fetish belief-systems, abject poverty and perennial ill-health.  Perhaps its only advantage is that it makes the polity docile and amenable to the whims and caprices of their oppressive leaders. Often, it hoodwinks its adherents into believing that ‘The God’ or ‘the gods’ they worship speak to them through the voices of their egocentric clerics who therefore can conveniently exploit them to satisfy their demonic desires of sensual pleasure and inordinate ambitions of amassing wealth. Their wanton indulgence in gluttony, wine and women is seen in every action and definitely this is the foolproof evidence of their demonic genealogy. To rescue humanity from the demonic stranglehold of idolatry that now predominates worldwide, you are invited to reason along with us and see that we provide an everlasting cure for sensual lust for food, wine, sex, wealth and power that are the trademarks of a society heading for damnation! Are you going to sit on the fence and wait for another failed experiment in messiahship that was riddled with myopic and ethnocentric bias? Who knows the Creator well enough to declare that he has ‘a chosen people’? Or, that he had only one son? If mere mortals like responsible human fathers in every community worldwide can have seven sons or more from one fertile woman, who limited the Almighty Creator and eternal Father of us all to only one son? Who is the father of all the other men; ancient and modern, who had been sent earlier on?

THE EVIDENCE IS SO CLEAR TO EVERY NATURAL SCIENTIST OR THE EDUCATED RATIONAL HUMAN THUS, WITNESS;

Culture is the summation of ethnocentric survival strategies that each sub-unit of humanity had developed over the centuries, institutionalized and passed on to their descendants. It is only the sons and daughters of the Almighty Creator have ignored their ONE CULTURE; obedience to all the natural laws as ONE WORLD RELIGION. That is what we desperately need today just as we use cellular phones and the Internet without killing anyone. Respect for and obedience to all the laws of nature is the key for a peaceful world with beautiful people living, loving and sharing the Creator's benefits as equal heirs to his blissful global world that we now share amicably thanks to scientists who have uncovered his designs for our mutual existence. LET US LIVE IN PEACE! 

THE SUMMATION OF THE MISSION STATEMENT OF I S M

KENEZIANISM or ISM is founded on the discovery of all the natural and eternal laws in creation and full obedience to all of them.
Dr Kenez argues that since there is only:
• One created universe, of which we all share its amenities,
• One earth, on which we all stand, walk about, build our physical structures, plant on, harvest from and solely depend on for our food,
• One atmospheric air that all living things breathe from to live,
• One rainfall that provides the water for all plants and animals,
• One sun and a moon that illuminate the world day and night,
• One anatomy and physiology that ensures our survival or death,
• Therefore, there must One Almighty Creator, who is the Ultimate Designer and Engineer responsible all that we can think, say, hear, feel and see! He/She/It is our Father/Mother/Creator that deserves our gratitude, obedience and loyalty.
In brief, Kenezians worship this Absolute Truth wherever it is found; on, below or above the earth! Tell, Live, Propagate and Die for the Truth! This principle and only this lifestyle guide the true sons and daughters of the Almighty Creator of the universe who we designate as crusaders for world peace for our global village!

HERE IS WHAT DR KENEZ LOOKED LIKE AT THE OUTSET OF SCRBBLING THESE PROLONGED AND PROTRACTED DICTATIONS FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT

CURRENT DAY DOCTRINES, DOGMAS AND LITURGIES ARE MAN-MADE BY RELIGIOUS DEMAGOGUES WHO LIVED OFF THE SWEAT OF UNINFORMED ANCESTORS

MANY OF MY READERS AND FOLLOWERS ARE SEEKING PROOFS FOR MY DEPOSITIONS THAT RELIGION IS A FORMULATION OF DOCTRINES AND DOGMAS BY ANCIENT DEMAGOGUES

Councils of Nicaea
I

INTRODUCTION
Councils of Nicaea, two ecumenical councils of the Christian church, held at Nicaea (now İznik, Turkey), a city of ancient Bithynia, in Asia Minor.
II

FIRST COUNCIL OF NICAEA
Empress Irene
Empress Irene reigned over the tumultuous Byzantine Empire at a time when religious issues divided the empire into rival factions. Ruling first as a regent for her underage son, she later imprisoned him and proclaimed herself empress. After five years on the throne, she was deposed by court officials in 802.
Scala/Art Resource, NY
Held in 325, this first ecumenical council was convened by Constantine the Great, emperor of Rome, to settle the Arian dispute concerning the nature of Jesus Christ (see Arianism). Of the 1800 bishops in the Roman Empire, 318 attended the council. The Nicene Creed, which defined the Son as consubstantial with the Father, was adopted as the official position of the church regarding the divinity of Christ. The council also fixed the celebration of Easter on the Sunday after the Jewish Pesach, or Passover, and granted to the bishop of Alexandria, Egypt authority in the East in the fashion of Rome's quasi-patriarchal authority, which was not, as sometimes erroneously stated, the same as that of the pope. In this granting of authority lay the origin of the patriarchates throughout the church.
III

SECOND COUNCIL OF NICAEA
Held in 787, the second of the councils at Nicaea was the seventh ecumenical council. It was convened by Irene, empress of the East, and attended by 350 bishops, most of whom were Byzantine. In spite of strong objections by the iconoclasts, the council validated the veneration of images and ordered their restoration in churches throughout the Roman Empire.

NOW SEE HOW THE COMPILATIONS STARTED

Apostles’ Creed is a brief summary statement of Christian belief traditionally attributed to the 12 apostles. According to legend, before setting out on their respective missions each of the 12 apostles contributed one clause. Like most Christian creeds, it contains three paragraphs, one for each person of the Trinity. The first paragraph begins, “I believe in God the Father Almighty”; the second begins, “I believe in Jesus Christ”; the third begins, “I believe in the Holy Spirit.” These three assertions correspond to the three questions that were addressed to candidates for baptism in the early church.
Until the 15th century, it was believed that the Apostles’ Creed was written by the apostles. It is now known that the creed is not of apostolic origin, but the title itself suggests that each clause of the creed can be traced to New Testament references and that the creed originated very early. Its immediate ancestor is the so-called Old Roman creed, which is based on a Greek formula of faith dating to the early 2nd century.
Today it is widely agreed that the Apostles’ Creed developed as the baptismal confession of faith. A similar, but not identical, confession appears in the baptismal liturgy contained in The Apostolic Tradition of Hippolytus (215?). Similar but variant versions are also found in the writings of the early Fathers of the Church, such as Irenaeus and Tertullian, in which they are called “rules of faith.” A form identical with what is now called the Apostles’ Creed did not emerge until the early 8th century, in the writings of St. Pirminius.
The Apostles’ Creed continues to be used as the baptismal profession of faith in most Western churches; Orthodox churches prefer to use the later Nicene Creed. In Roman Catholic practice, the Apostles’ Creed is also recited in the daily office, before the first and after the last service each day. In most Protestant churches, it is used periodically at Sunday worship. Anglicans and Lutherans use it regularly in morning and evening prayer (matins and evensong).

ANY SENSIBLE MAN OR WOMAN CAN SEE THAT SOME FABLES, LEGENDS AND PROPOSITIONS WERE BROUGHT TOGETHER AND DRESSED UP AS WHAT ORDINARY FISHERMEN COMPOSED AND COMPILED AS DOCTRINES AND DOGMAS FOR EARLY ILLITERATE CHRISTIANS AND THEN LEGISLATED AS CREEDS!
QUOT ERAT DEMONSTRADUM;
Dr Jideofo Kenechukwu Danmbaezue, D.Sc.
in Modern Theosophy a.k.a. Rev. Prof. J. J. Kenez






WE MUST REPLACE WHAT DEMAGOGUES INVENTED AS ARTICLES OF BLIND FAITH THAT LED AND STILL LEADS TO MASS IDOLATRY WHICH CAGED CHRISTENDOM
There was neither a ceremonial ritual on the day each of us was conceived nor any throughout the gestational period. No ritual or liturgy chaperoned our mothers till labour pains begin; therefore, the man-made ritual of baptism is not only exploitative but fetish.
After a child is ninety days old, the immediate blood relatives may gather in a simple thanksgiving event and the oldest male, the oldest female, the youngest male and finally the youngest female prays to the Almighty for the gift of the newborn that has increased the numerical strength of the lineage. A simple entertainment using local items of food and drink are shared, dancing and merriment may round off the event that should hold in moonlight. The same simple ceremony is followed when a member of each community dies.
The only difference would be THAT ONLY THOSE OLDER THAN THE DEPARTED FAMILY KINSMEN WHO LIVED HOLY LIVES ARE PERMITTED TO PRAY. The corpse wrapped in clean white sheets is interned into fresh mud graves dug into Mother Earth without an expensive casket nor the debauchery and other elaborate charade that has been in vogue since the last century. Funerals must be classless as Birth of All Human Beings worldwide has been since Adam! Patriarch Enoch is our Role Model !

THE SECRET OF ENOCH WAS THAT HE HAD NO IDOLS AND WE RATIONAL BEINGS EMULATE HIM.

·       He did not worship these idols: self-pride, love-of-money, indulgence-in-erotic-pleasures, lust-for-power, food & alcoholism.
·       Rather, he obeyed all the natural laws he could decipher and was loyal to the Creator of his parents. He loved his fellow human beings, took care of them and showed his concern for them.
·       A simple and uncomplicated life on this planet Earth will merit you the same reward HE got! Imitate him in thoughts, words and deeds. That is exactly what true I. S. M in theory and practice stands for!

BELOW IS THE ETERNAL MOTTO OF ALL KENEZIANS a.k.a SPIRITANSFOR GLOBAL PEACE IN OUR GLOBAL VILLAGE AND A RECAPITULATION OF THE GLOBAL PRINCIPLES OF I S M

1.    ONE ALMIGHTY CREATOR, ONE CREATED UNIVERSE, ONE HUMAN FAMILY IS A GIVEN DATUM NOT A HYPOTHESIS NOR MUNDANE THEOLOGY

2.    INTEGRATIONAL SPIRITAN MOVEMENT IS A FELLOWSHIP BUILT ON SIMPLE TRUTHS OF NATURE OBSERVABLE AROUND HUMANKIND
3.    ALL BONA-FIDE KENEZIANS TELL, LIVE, PROPAGATE AND DIE FOR THE TRUTH IF THE NEED ARISES!

The difference between this spiritual fellowship for all mankind irrespective of one’s nationality, philosophy of life, social status, educational achievement or political persuasion and other religious fellowships is that there is nothing here that is built on mythologies, fables, legends, dogmas, doctrines, belief systems or revealed truths!

Rather, what the founder of this interdisciplinary, inter-ethnic and integrational spiritual fellowship has done is to provide simple facts of nature that unites rather than divides the human race. Every being is a product of nature! It argues that since there is only:
        One created universe, of which we all share its amenities,
        One earth, on which we all stand, walk about, build our physical structures, plant on, harvest from and depend on for our food,
        One atmospheric air that living things breathe from to live,
        One rainfall that provides the water for all plants and animals,
        One sun and a moon that illuminate the world day and night,
        One anatomy and physiology that ensures our survival or death,
        Therefore, there must One Almighty Creator, who is the ultimate designer and engineer responsible all that we can think, say, hear, feel and see! He/she is our Father/Mother and we are all sons and daughters of this Infinite Truth that grants us life! Are we not brothers and sisters, irrespective of our skin colour, facial structures, languages and peculiar child rearing practices? We are surely, equal heirs to this commonwealth of mutually beneficent, compensatory and life-sustaining gifts from the Almighty God, the All-knowing, All-sustaining and All-powerful Creator of us all!

This truth is inter-religious, interdenominational, intercultural, interdisciplinary and finally international! Simple statements of facts like these are incontrovertible, aren’t they? We inter-marry and reproduce healthy babies! So, why must we follow demonic leaders, spiritual or temporal, who delude us with their myopic ideas and ethnocentric theories into practising social prejudices that eventually result in fighting and killing of our own brothers and sisters? It is not only puerile and futile but also irrational and psychopathological! Let us seek for a solution! I. S. M. seeks that!

ABSTRACT

The Current Re-emergence of Spiritualism in Christendom is a return to the basics in human nature of seeking to reduce anxiety or depression by knowing the future relying on the vagaries of prophecies that every spirit medium can see and communicate and therefore be prepared to forestall their negative effects. It started in the Garden of Eden when Eve succumbed to Satan’s deceptive suggestion that eating the Forbidden Fruit would make her as wise as God. The primordial psychological satisfaction of the knowledge and ability to control one's future is the root of spiritualism. It is an extension of Eve's desire to be as wise as God. That was the joker the serpent used to get her eat the forbidden fruit. So you can now place a finger at the aetiology of and development of current day confused Christians having recourse to occult mediums who give them what their regular pastors do not and can never provide. Simply put; it is a return to African Traditional Religious Practices. Imported religions have failed them and our half-baked Christians are back to their roots.  
PROLOGUE:

Please permit me indulge in a pastime I developed as an adolescent in the 1960s at All Hallows Seminary, Onitsha. Though your bishop was a master actor in William Shakespeare's Plays that our school acted "in diebus illis"; meaning "in those days". The cast of AS YOU LIKE IT that was their best included Hilary Okeke, Romanus Mmuoneke, Mark Anwulora & many others my memory has failed to recall now. I lacked the recitation skills of acting, however I was one of the few that read English Literature at the Advanced Level but failed to sit the examinations as the Biafran War overtook all of us.

Here is a summary of what we shall be discussing in this ultimate article on THE PSYCHOLGICAL ROOTS OF SPIRITUALISM THAT IS NOW IN VOGUE IN CURRENT CHRISTENDOM WORLWIDE TODAY.

Hulton Archive - Stringer/Hulton Archive/Getty Images
The Macbeth witches are essential to the plot ofMacbeth because they provide Macbeth's ‘call to action'. Their prophesies drive his thirst for power and enable Lady Macbeth to pursue her own ambitions. Therefore, the Macbeth witches provide the dynamism that has made Macbeth one of Shakespeare's most popular and intense plays.
What I hope all my readers will note from this citation is that all spiritual mediums are double tongued, their predictions of prophecies are very woolly and could mean so many things that only their captives can translate for good or demonic purposes.

The sinister Motives of the Macbeth Witches

Shakespeare used a number of devices to create a sense of otherness and malevolence for theMacbeth witches (also referred to as the "weird sisters"). For example:
· The Macbeth witches speak in rhyming couplets which distinguishes them from all other characters in the play
· The Macbeth witches are said to have beards, making them difficult to gender
· They are always accompanied by storms and bad weather
During the play, the Macbeth witches make five key predictions:
1.                      Macbeth will become Thane of Cawdor
2.                      Banquo's children will become kings
3.                      They advise Macbeth to "beware Macduff"
4.                      Macbeth cannot be harmed by anyone "of woman born"
5.                      Macbeth cannot be beaten until "Great Birnam Wood to high Dunsinane shall come"
Four of these predictions are realized; one is not. Although Banquo's children do not become Kings during the course of the play, Banquo's children do escape murder and could return at some point in the future. At the end of the play it is left for the audience to decide whether or not they believe theMacbeth witches.
But are the witch's prophesies preordained? Or do they simply encourage Macbeth to become active in constructing his own fate? It is perhaps part ofMacbeth's character to shape his life according to the predictions - whereas Banquo does not. This might explain why the only prophesy not realized by the end of the play relates directly to Banquo and cannot be shaped by Macbeth (although Macbeth would also have little control over the "Great Birnam Wood" prediction).
By writing the Macbeth witches in this manner, Shakespeare is asking an age old question: are our lives already mapped out for us or do we have a hand in what happens to us? Therefore, at the end of the play the audience is forced to consider the extent to which the characters have control over their own lives.
This is essential to the plot of Macbeth because they provide Macbeth's ‘call to action'. Their ‘prophesies’ drive his thirst for power and enableLady Macbeth to pursue her own ambitions.
Therefore, the Macbeth witches provide the dynamism that has made Macbeth one of Shakespeare's most popular and intense plays.

NOTE THAT SAME DOUBLE EDGED SWORD IS AT PLAY HERE; WITCH DOCTORS AND OTHER SPIRIT MEDIUMS ARE MASTERS AT DOBLE-SPEAK, CONFUSING THEIR CAPTIVES WHO CAN INTERPRET THEIR MESSAGE EITHER WAY


PROPER DEFINITIONS OF THE RELEVANT TERMS BECOMES MANDATROY FOR DELIMITING OUR UNIVERSE OF DISCOURSE

Spiritualism is a dualist metaphysical belief that the world is made up of at least two fundamental substances, matter andspirit. This very broad metaphysical distinction is further developed into many and various forms by the inclusion of details about what spiritual entities exist such as a soul, the afterlife, spirits of the dead, deities and mediums; as well as details about the nature of the relationship between spirit and matter. It may also refer to the philosophy, doctrine, or religionpertaining to a spiritual aspect of existence.[1]
It is also a term commonly used for various psychic or paranormal practices and beliefs recorded throughout humanity's history[2][3] and in a variety of cultures.[4][5]
Spiritualistic traditions appear deeply rooted in shamanism and perhaps are one of the oldest forms of religion. 
Mediumship is a modern form of shamanism and such ideas are very much like those developed by Edward Burnett Tylor in his theory of animism,[6] in which there are other parallel worlds to our own, though invisible to us and not accessible to us in our state. A psychic is to be one of the connecting link between these worlds. A psychic is defined as someone endowed with exceptional sensitivity to the occult dimension, who experiences visions and revelations. Some authors have stated only few individuals are said to have this capacity.[7]

From the Latin 'spiritus'. Most basically, spiritualism is the belief that spirits are able to communicate with the living by agency of a medium. The earliest recorded use of the word is 1796[8] and it was used by the prominent 18th-century spiritualist Emanuel Swedenborg. The term "spiritualism" has come to have different meanings. A broad working definition of the term would include; the multi-faceted belief in a vital principle within living beings, a supernatural or paranormal,divine, incorporeal being–force, spiritanimasanimating bodies etc.

Adherents of spiritualistic movements believe that the spirits of the dead survive mortal life, and that sentient beings from "spiritual worlds", can and do communicate with the living. Since ancient times, this has been an element in traditional indigenous religions.[9] In today's world, it is a growing phenomenon manifesting itself in traditional indigenous religiosity on all continents through non-aligned spiritualistic groups and many syncretistic movements and within elements of orthodox religions by which it is still seen as a challenge.[10]
Many reference works [2] also use the term spiritism to mean the same thing as "spiritualism" but Spiritism is more accurately used to mean Kardecist spiritism. Central to adherents' faith is a belief that spirits of the dead communicate with the living usually through a medium.

UTILISATION OF SPIRITUALISM IS WORLDWIDE BUT HERE LET US RESTRICT OURSELVES TO OUR CONTINENT AFRICA

West-African Kongol and Bantu tradition is generally referred to as Vodun (or anglicised to Voodoo). Spirit mediumship and spirit possession are fairly common practices in Sub-Saharan Africa, both in traditional religions and in Christian contexts.
As is the norm, the term spiritualism and spiritism are used generally and interchangeably to describe indigenous spiritualistic practises.[61] Spiritism, spiritualism,[62] and spiritual churches have been established in Ghana[63] and Nigeria. Following similar trends of the syncretism of traditional spirit worship and Christianity,[64][65] they pervade everyday life to the top of society where they play a part in politic elections, ritualizing to help politicians win elections and interpreting events in prophetic terms[62] and are used in healing.[66]

Kubandwa is a spirit possession cult spread all over the Great Lakes region of Africa (Rwanda, Burundi, north-western Tanzania, Uganda, Eastern Congo)[67] past women have played an important role in kubandwa, both as mediums and spirits.[68] Tromba mediumship features in Madagascar.[69]

 

SPIRITUALISM IS NOT RESTRICTED TO THE OLDEST RELIGIONS NOR CHRISTIANITY FOR EVEN IN THE FAR EAST RELIGIONS THEY EXIST AS WELL AS THE NEWEST ONES

 

Islam[edit]

Main article: marabout
Spiritualism is practised but not condoned in Islamic societies. The Sufi sect of Dervishes are referred to as "Eastern Spiritualists".[70] Likewise, the Zār cult of North Africa (SudanEgypt) and theMiddle East (Iran).[71]

SPIRITUALISTIC ACTIVITIES


The phenomena of Spiritualism consists of; prophecy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, gift of tongues, laying on of hands, healing, visions, trance, apports, revelations, raps, levitation, automatic and independent writing and painting, photography, materialization, psychometry, direct and independent voice, and any other manifestation which proves the continuity of life after death.[72]

Such universal practises and the giving of spiritual guidance, the different manifestation of spiritualistic activities were categorised by Sir William Crookes, a highly distinguished British physicist and chemist, as being;
·                    The movement of heavy bodies with contact, but without mechanical exertion
·                    The phenomena of percussive and other allied sounds
·                    The alteration of weights of bodies
·                    Movements of heavy substances when at a distance from the medium
·                    The rising of tables and chairs off the ground, without contact with any person
·                    The levitation of human beings
·                    Movement of various small articles without contact with any person
·                    Luminous appearances
·                    The appearance of hands, either self-luminous or visible by ordinary light
·                    Direct (automatic) writing
·                    Phantom forms and faces
·                    Special instances which seem to point to the agency of an exterior intelligence
·                    Miscellaneous occurrences of a complex character.

GENDER BALANCE

Women have historically had a fairly constant interest in the spirit world. Spiritualism's current popularity in the West is a result of women having more power and visibility, giving the spirit world a prominence in society that it previously had only during spiritualism's "boom" periods when men became interested.[73]
Historically, the majority of mediums for tromba spirits amongst the Sakalava have also been adult women, usually in their forties or older and is likewise associated with female status.[69] In general, a Sakalava ritual in which the spirits must be fed, cannot be performed if the two are not present and represented.

HERE PERMIT MY DIGRESSION TO IGBO TRADITIONAL ‘NSO ANI’ TO BUTTRESS MY CONTENTION THAT THE ROMANCE WE HAD WITH IMPORTED RELIGIONS HAVE WANED. THE MARRIAGE LOST ITS STEAM AFTER THE CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS

Although the pre-scientific metaphysics of the people of Biafra will definitely need updating, their Pristine Social Ethics will never need any existential change despite the whirlwind of foreign religions raging all around them!

This is not only the opinion of this author but that of many intellectuals who affirm that the corrupting influence of both Westernisation and Imported Religions will never erase the respect, adoration and loyalty NSO ANI enjoys in the hearts of liberated and self-actualised indigenes of the Igbo land! Authentic natives still live by NSO ANI in their private lives, whether at home or in the Diaspora, and transmit its mores and norms to their children by words and deeds!

To date, when all other religious abracadabra fail to heal an erring son or daughter of Biafra, resort is made to the pristine modes of cleansing the individual of the guilt he or she had earned by desecrating the natural laws of the Earth Goddess. No amount of religious imperialism or psychosocial politicisation of Igbo traditional religion can ever successfully replace the respect that NSO ANI enjoys in Biafra. This is exactly what the return to Spiritualism in Modern Christianity represents. Another way to put it is the romance with foreign religions and probably the bronze, silver, golden and diamond jubilees of our indigenes wedding to the white missionaries is over. We have woken up from our mass hypnosis; “THINGS FALL APART”

THE GENESIS OF IMMORALITY IN BIAFRA WAS THE ASSIMILATION OF WESTERNISATION SO MUCH SO THAT ONE CAN ARGUE THAT IMPORTED RELIGIONS BROUGHT OUR DECLINE IN SOCIAL MORALITY

The desecration of our pre-colonial high moral values started with the arrival of the first white missionaries in West Africa. What the natives called “NSO-ANI” was re-branded FORGIVEABLE SINS and so watered down the sanctity of religious values in Biafra. Its partner, WESTERN EDUCATION neatly completed the ‘coup de grace’ as the foreign concepts and social values of the colonialists destroyed the social ethics of the natives and rendered our pristine mores and norms ineffective. In some communities; “aping the white man’s dress code and mannerisms became fashionable and ignoring the customs and traditions of the community was seen as the criterion of being EDUCATED and MORE CIVILISED than the illiterate folks in the villages!

THE KENEZIAN PSYCHOLOGICAL IMPERATIVES

1.            IGBOS ARE HARD CORE REPUBLICANS WHO DO NOT SUCCUMB TO INSTITUTED AUTHORITIES EASILY. THEY ARE RESULT ORIENTATED. ONCE A LEADER FAILS TO GIVE THEM THE RESULTS THEY WANT, THEY TURN THEIR BACKS ON SUCH IMPOTENT LEADERS, RELIGIOUS OR POLITICAL DOES NOT COUNT.

2.            THEY ARE SO CREATIVE THAT DEVISE ALTERNATIVES WITHOUT INCURRING EXCOMMUNICATION FROM THEIR OFFICIALCHURCH. THEY SEEK FOR EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS WHEREVER THEY CAN FIND IT.

3.            THEY USE THEIR FINANCIAL RESOURCES TO SILENCE OPPOSITIONS WHO THEY ARE CERTAIN WILL NOT STOP THEM SO LONG AS THEY FINANCE CHURCH ACTIVITIES LIKE HARVEST AND BAZAARS, PAY THEIRS MAC OR TITHES AS AND WHEN DUE. FIRST, SECOND, THIRD AND FOURTH COLLECTIONS POSE NO PROBLEMS, SO WHY DO THEY NEED CLERICS TELLING THEM WHAT TO DO WITH THEIR MONEY AND PRIVATE RELIGIOUS LIFE?

4.            THIS FITS THE AXIOM FROM THE LORD AND MASTER, GIVE TO CAESAR THE THINGS THAT ARE HIS AND TO GOD THE THINGS THAT ARE HIS. SHEENA, NO VICTOR, NO LANGUISHED. THIS IS PRACTICALLY THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SPIRITUALISM IN CHRISTIANS RETURNING TO THEIR ROOTS. THE ONLY SOLUTION IS PROVIDING THEM SOLUTIONS BEYOND IMPOTENT SERMONS.

5.            PSYCHOLOGICAL SATISFACTION OF THE KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITY TO CONTROL ONE'S FUTURE IS THE ROOT OF SPIRITUALISM. IT IS AN EXTENSION OF EVE'S DESIRE TO BE AS WISE AS GOD THAT WAS THE JOKER THE SERPENT USED TO GET HER EAT THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT. SO YOU CAN NOW PLACE A FINGER AT THE ETIOLOGY OF CURRENT DAY CONFUSED CHRISTIANS HAVING RECOURSE TO OCCULT MEDIUMS WHO GIVE THEM WHAT THEIR REGULAR PASTORS DO NOT AND CAN NEVER PROVIDE.

6.            SIMPLY PUT; IT IS A RETURN TO AFRICAN TRADITIONAL RELIGIOUS PRACTICES. IMPORTED RELIGIONS HAVE FAILED AND OUR HALFBACK CHRISTIANS ARE BACK TO THEIR ROOTS. THE ONLY OPTION IS FOR OFFICIALS OF THE IMPORTED VERSIONS OF CHRISTIANITY TO GIVE THE NATIVES WHAT SPIRIT MEDIUMS PROVIDE THEM. THIS IS WHY SPIRITUAL CHURCHES ARE THRIVING. CAN THE CATHOLIC BISHOPS CONFERENCE PROVIDE ANSWERS?

KENEZ PSYCHOTHERPEUTIC EPILOGUE

The narrative you find in Genesis 5, vv.21 – 24 and again in the Book of Sirach; Chapter 44, verse 16 makes a brief reference to Enoch. Read them now before evaluating my resume.
Those narratives are instructive and it might be very beneficial for you spending some time analysing their import. The following are my humble conclusions after perusing them.
1.      Enoch was an illiterate man. He obeyed the natural laws God put in his mind and the environment. Yet he was not corrupt like those around him who were described as ‘sinners’.
 2.      No one taught Enoch these natural laws that merited favour with the Almighty Creator of the whole universe even at the ripe age 365 years! Therefore the knowledge is in-born in humans!
3.      Enoch who gave birth to Methuselah, a legend that lived 969 years, was neither a priest nor a prophet, yet he was pleasing to God! So could you and I!
SO IT IS STILL POSSIBLE TO PLEASE ALMIGHTY GOD WITHOUT BELONGING TO THE WARRING RELIGIONS OF TODAY. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT ISM IS ALL ABOUT.
YOU TOO, CAN REALLY PLEASE GOD WITHOUT BEING DEEPLY INVOLVED WITH THE MUNDANE RELIGIOUS POLITICS OF THIS AGE OF FANATICISM OR SYNCRETISM.

THE SECRET OF ENOCH WAS THAT HE HAD NO IDOLS.
·        He did not worship these idols: self-pride, love-of-money, indulgence-in-erotic-pleasures, lust-for-power, food & alcoholism.
·        Rather, he obeyed all the natural laws he could decipher and was loyal to the Creator of his parents.
·        He loved his fellow human beings, took care of them and showed his concern for them.
·        A simple and uncomplicated life on this planet Earth will merit you the same reward HE got! Imitate him in thoughts, words and deeds.  That is exactly I. S. M for Global Peace!


IN SUMMARY, DR JIDEOFO KENECHUKWU DANMBAEZUE CONTENDS THAT NO DEVOUT CHILD OF GOD SHOULD CONSULT A SPIRIT MEDIUM. WHATEVER MERITED THE FIRST MAN WHO WAS TAKEN UP TO LIVE WITH THE CREATOR LEST HE BE CORRUPTED BY HIS PEERS IS  OUR BEST LIFESTYLE.

THE ENOCHIAN BEATITUDES
1. Blessed are those who obey all the Natural Laws in creation, For theirs is the Kingdom of God, personally guaranteed by The Almighty Creator of the universe.
2. Blessed are those who recognise that all human beings are their brothers and sisters, For their portion is the possession of the true Egalitarianism.
3. Blessed are those who know that we all share the same air, water, blood plasma, sun and moon, For this native insight shall reward them with filial love and care for others.
4. Blessed are those who realise that we all walk and plant on the same ground, For social justice and the joy of sharing shall be their everlasting benefits.
5. Blessed are those who wake up early each morning thanking and praising God, For this acknowledgement shall bring them divine blessings and peace of mind.
6. Blessed are all that recognise that equality at birth is the L.C.M. of human life, For theirs is the philosophic insight that eradicates apartheid and abrogates racism.
7. Blessed are the wise who know that we return to this human equality at death, For theirs are the social virtues and simple lifestyles it inculcates in all wise people.
8. Blessed are the genuine proponents and practitioners of true family life, For, through lovely children and happy homes, they shall inherit eternal life.
9. Blessed are all who train themselves to restrain their thoughts and guard their speech, For they will be respected by and confided in by those who interact with them anywhere.
10. Blessed are the few who have conquered their appetites for food, drinks and sex, For true happiness based on control of their will power shall be crowns on their heads.
BLESSED ARE THE TRUE DISCIPLES OF PATRIARCH ENOCH FOR
• SUCCESSFUL LONG LIVES, • GOOD HEALTH IN OLD AGE, &
• PHYSICAL ASCENSION INTO HEAVEN SHALL BE
THE ETERNAL PRIZES RESERVED FOR THEM BY GOD!

Religion, which is superstition sanctioned by the state, is actually an addiction to man-made doctrines and dogmas invented, patented and copyrighted by a few demagogues. 
• It enslaves the mind more than psychoactive drugs, 
• Benumbs human creativity and resourcefulness thereby
• Restricting the development of the human potential and capital.
It is the main cause of poverty of the mind and underdevelopment of third world countries as its side-effects are indolence, redundancy, laziness and dependence of finished products and services. In the final analysis, it is the predisposing factor to lack of initiative, debilitating ignorance, fetish belief-systems, abject poverty and perennial ill-health.

Perhaps its only advantage is that it makes the polity docile and amenable to the whims and caprices of their oppressive leaders. Often, it hoodwinks its adherents into believing that ‘The God’ or ‘the gods’ they worship speak to them through the voices of their egocentric clerics who therefore can conveniently exploit them to satisfy their demonic desires of sensual pleasure and inordinate ambitions of amassing wealth. Their wanton indulgence in gluttony, wine and women is seen in every action and definitely this is the foolproof evidence of their demonic genealogy.

To rescue humanity from the demonic stranglehold of idolatry that now predominates worldwide, you are invited to reason along with us and see that we provide an everlasting cure for sensual lust for food, wine, sex, wealth and power that are the trademarks of society heading for damnation! Are you going to sit on the fence and wait for another failed experiment in Messiahship that was riddled with myopic and ethnocentric bias? Who knows the Creator well enough to declare that he has ‘a chosen people’? Where is the evidence that Moses actually led the so-called people out of any oppressive regime? The history books and modern encyclopaedia did not record the enslavement of the Jewish race except as ‘they were believed as revealed truths’.

The Creator has hidden so much from our intellectual faculties that to date we are still unravelling those He is allowing humanity to glimpse at through divine dreams, intuitions, inspirations and revelations to devout souls! Do you want to have supernatural knowledge mediated by spiritual faculties of seeing, feeling, sensing and caring for others? Look inwards, for the kingdom of God is inside you, not outside as many preachers tell you. No one ever got eternal bliss by keeping the commandments of men. It is given to altruistic seekers of that Divine Guidance in the affairs of mankind, which many yearn for but do not know where, when and how to find it. Search for it in this book! 

The creator gave humans some of his powers and knowledge for recreating the material universe for the mutual benefits of all his created beings but today many use his gifts to perpetrate evil. Either by design or demonic manipulation, the obverse is the case; the first datum that every living thing recognises is that someone put it here and caters for its welfare. Dogs respect and fight in defence of their owners. Every pet realises that it is loved and taken care of by someone who has value for its existence. It is human who pride themselves of being rational beings that do not recognise, respect or realise that all of us have a single owner. It is absurd! Some believe there is an Almighty Creator who provides for each creature on daily basis, some assert that he has turned his back on us due to our congenital wickedness and cruel ways, while others simply deny his existence! 

This is my summation of the problem; “Religion was/is a superstitious search by humanity for its origin, existence, meaning and relevance before the scientific era. The search was led by acclaimed sages among the elders of a community who defined its theories and practices. It is later ratified and recommended for legislation and implementation by state apparatus by convincing stratagem or coercion by politico-religious leaders. Thereafter, it is fine tuned and administered by ordained priests and priestesses who hand it down along ancestral lineages from one generation of lukewarm adherents, fanatics and mystics to another. Gradually, strong personalities emerge claiming divine appointment and so pull strong followers who idolise them as role models with supernatural powers. This obsession confirms them as beacons of adulation and finally leads to full scale idolatry.

INTRODUCTION TO INTEGRATIONAL SPIRITAN MOVEMENT
The Computer-Age Spiritual Fellowship for Citizens of Our Global Village

Many people are mere conformists. They are those personalities that are satisfied with ‘going through the motions’; doing what everyone else is doing to make a living and waiting for the final ‘call to glory’ as they brand death! Many of us are born and live an inconsequential life; bland, uneventful and without anything particular to be remembered for after our exit from this mundane world, a temporal habitation for the soul. There are some others, whose lives and contributions to the society made a difference! They changed the ‘status quo’ by either extending the frontiers of knowledge or developing their immediate communities. They improved the understanding of human nature and taught others the values of humanitarianism. These heroes and heroines touched the lives of many both inter-racially and internationally.

They added colour to the doldrums of routine existence on planet earth!
A few had tall dreams and went ahead to transform them into reality despite all odds. This group devised methods of changing the deplorable situations and the deprived circumstances of the lifestyle they met on becoming adults. Some adolescents dream of the courage to better their social status, but often take off on the wrong foot of seeking for titles, money, fame and crowning it all with indulging in romantic relationships. 

Others dared to pursue the unknown, to break new grounds and blaze trails for followers to tread on. Their zeal, inquisitiveness, passion, persistence, desire, motivations and prayers were fully rewarded if they paid the prize for success; optimism, dedication and the refusal to quit. Their philosophy of life was ‘When the task gets tough, the tough get it going!’, ‘Never say, never again!’ or ‘All that it takes to make the impossible possible is the power to remove the ‘im’ in front of the possible!’ 

They eventually became geniuses, inventors, explorers, leaders or discoverers! They evolved into the innovators and pioneers who helped to enlarge the frontiers of human civilisations and removed the age-old boundaries of the unknown. Joining this select group of animators or league of achievers is usually not by accident or by mere wishful thinking. Beyond desire and hard work is a divine factor that must be recognised, respected and appropriated in unveiling the unknown that the Divine Architect had hidden there for ages waiting for a brave soul to convert it from obscure dormancy to utilitarian vibrancy. This author, Dr Kenez wants to know where you belong in this universal continuum. Or, are you waiting for ‘manna from heaven’?

  1. BELOW IS THE ETERNAL MOTTO OF ALL KENEZIANS a.k.a SPIRITANSFOR GLOBAL PEACE IN OUR GLOBAL VILLAGE AND A RECAPITULATION OF THE GLOBAL PRINCIPLES OF I S M
    1. ONE ALMIGHTY CREATOR, ONE CREATED UNIVERSE, ONE HUMAN FAMILY IS A GIVEN DATUM NOT A HYPOTHESIS NOR MUNDANE THEOLOGY
    2. INTEGRATIONAL SPIRITAN MOVEMENT IS A FELLOWSHIP BUILT ON SIMPLE TRUTHS OF NATURE OBSERVABLE AROUND HUMANKIND
    3. ALL BONA-FIDE KENEZIANS TELL, LIVE, PROPAGATE AND DIE FOR THE TRUTH IF THE NEED ARISES!

    The difference between this spiritual fellowship for all mankind irrespective of one’s nationality, philosophy of life, social status, educational achievement or political persuasion and other religious fellowships is that there is nothing here that is built on mythologies, fables, legends, dogmas, doctrines, belief systems or revealed truths!

    Rather, what the founder of this interdisciplinary, inter-ethnic and integrational spiritual fellowship has done is to provide simple facts of nature that unites rather than divides the human race. Every being is a product of nature! It argues that since there is only:
    • One created universe, of which we all share its amenities,
    • One earth, on which we all stand, walk about, build our physical structures, plant on, harvest from and depend on for our food,
    • One atmospheric air that living things breathe from to live,
    • One rainfall that provides the water for all plants and animals,
    • One sun and a moon that illuminate the world day and night,
    • One anatomy and physiology that ensures our survival or death,
    • Therefore, there must One Almighty Creator, who is the ultimate designer and engineer responsible all that we can think, say, hear, feel and see! He/she is our Father/Mother and we are all sons and daughters of this Infinite Truth that grants us life! Are we not brothers and sisters, irrespective of our skin colour, facial structures, languages and peculiar child rearing practices? We are surely, equal heirs to this commonwealth of mutually beneficent, compensatory and life-sustaining gifts from the Almighty God, the All-knowing, All-sustaining and All-powerful Creator of us all!

    This truth is inter-religious, interdenominational, intercultural, interdisciplinary and finally international! Simple statements of facts like these are incontrovertible, aren’t they? We inter-marry and reproduce healthy babies! So, why must we follow demonic leaders, spiritual or temporal, who delude us with their myopic ideas and ethnocentric theories into practising social prejudices that eventually result in fighting and killing of our own brothers and sisters? It is not only puerile and futile but also irrational and psychopathological! Let us seek for a solution! I. S. M. seeks that!
