What is the place of Amure in CCC?
Amure in CCC denotes the anointment rank of the bearer.
It marks the order of siting arrangement in worship, spiritual procession and recession.
In CCC, the fringes at the end of the edges of the loins are used spiritually in various ways:
Casting out demons and spell.
Transfer of spiritual power.
Is it mandatory to use Amure during service?
As an anointed member in CCC, you are expected to always use your girdle (Amure) for every service.
You are not allow(ed) to enter the altar arena without your girdle.
Before any male worshipper is allowed to enter the altar arena in time immemorial, he is expected to have at least 6 inscribe cross on his girdle which means he must have been elevated to the rank of a leader in the church.
An anointee that fails to participate in spiritual work, what does he stand to lose?
Great loss! Because since the day he has been anointed, it has been declared from heaven that he possess the actual power of the rank he is wearing and failure to use this spiritual power will bring misfortune to the bearer.
In a service where the choristers are expected to put on their cape but they fail to do so, what is the implication?
They have relegated Holy Spirit in such service so there is tendency that they will be worldly songs and worshippers will not be blessed in such service. In such a church and service, once Holy Spirit is relegated, evil spirit will be activated.
Is it appropriate to jump from ranks to another rank? For example, an elder brother jumping to leader rank?
It was so from inception but now bastardized. The head of the church, that is the Pastor, often approve the jumping of ranks for some members of the laities and clergy alike due to high performance of such members or sometimes as a matter of honor or due to calculation of years without anointment. But in so recent, bastardization came as a result of economic power possesses by the to-be anointee who will pay his way through to bagged any specific rank either worthy to or not.
