Christ in you the hope of glory!

"… in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ"  Ephesians 3:3-4.
Rev. Muzembi
God created all things by Jesus Christ, "In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him" Ephesians 3:12

Faith, not your own, but that we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him, Jesus Christ our Lord. 

By the faith of him, "the dispensation of the grace of God", was given to us also. Paul says, "by revelation he made known unto me the mystery...Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed...by the Spirit." Ephesians 3:3-5. The revelation is unique my friend.

He wrote also saying, "Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ." Ephesians 3:8-9. We don’t just fellowship anyway anyway but we’re enlightened, and our job is to "make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery."

That revelation got him to preach everywhere. How did he do it? First he went about preaching, and he wrote epistles also. He said,"...(as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)" Ephesians 3:3-4.

Why do I always write my friend? "Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ"

My knowledge (revelation) in the mystery of Christ should first be understood before anyone can pass judgement on it. Yea, I’m the least of all apostles, but read - taste and see that the Lord is good!

Here was his revelation;

  • that you should know God through "the faith of him", Christ’s alone, not by your own wisdom. "For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." 1 Corinthians 1:21. You don’t need to be a graduate to preach Christ. 


"For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward." 2 Corinthians 1:12. Jesus said, "Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again." John 3:7. The dilemma these days is even preachers themselves do not want to change, they go about establishing their own righteousness, but Paul says we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, or simply speaking by "the dispensation of the grace of God" given to us from on high.

The mystery of Christ is revealed by the Spirit, that you may be able to comprehend with all saints the fullness of God - Christ in you the hope of glory!

Contend for the Faith!

You’re in Jesus Christ as God’s plan of salvation for you;
He called you, and you said yes in Jesus, wherein you are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved. In him is God’s mercy, and peace, and love multiplied towards you.
You are sanctified and preserved in Christ by God the Father, and not you alone, it’s a common salvation - it is the case throughout the world. The whole world is going after him. What happened to me happened also to you and to all who believe in God through Christ around the world.
Here is why God chose you, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" Jude 1:3.
We earnestly contend for the faith,  [or defend] the common salvation, that it remains the same as it was first delivered.
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."…

Receive the Holy Spirit!

In Mark chapter one John the Baptist told his audience that the one who is more powerful is coming, he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.
And in those days Jesus came from Nazareth and was baptized in the Jordan by John, and as soon as he came up out of the water, John saw the heavens open and the Spirit descending on Jesus like a dove, and immediately the Spirit drove him into the wilderness.
Now listen my friend; when you receive the Holy Spirit, immediately your life changes. 
God does not give you of his spirit to only experience a funny feeling; quaking, trembling, or entertaining others like what they do in circus, but he gave us that he should drive us to doing his will. The Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness for "forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him." It was not fun, but serious business, such that later a man with an unclean spirit, "cried out, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, tho…

It is well with my soul

Jesus said, "In your patience possess ye your souls." Luke 21:19.
He says, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Mark 8:36-37.
My message here for you is after you have done all in life, gain your souls, know how you can possess it. When you are self-aware, you consciously know and understand your own character, feelings, motives, desires and what these should serve in life. When we are self-aware, we are able to experience ourselves as separate individuals, with unique personalities natured for the divine, and it is what makes it possible for us to make lasting changes in our lives. 
Self-awareness is empowering, because the more self-aware we are, the more we know who we are, what our strengths are, where we need to make improvements, and  what to do. Know that you have a soul, and that soul needs to grow and it does grow only when you feed it with things divine, no…
