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!

The office of a bishop!

"A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach." 1 Timothy 3:2
You got to tick all the boxes to be a bishop, not to tick tick the only one box that suits you most, but all. It‘s not enough only to be able to teach whilst you fail on the other aspects. A bishop must be blameless and beyond reproach, the husband of one wife, self-controlled, sensible, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine, not a bully, but gentle, considerate, and free from the love of money. Now consider also your leader, if he/she can teach, but falls short on the other characteristics then you should know you’re both liable to falling into the devil’s trap. How will he/she take care of the church of God while ethically wrong?
Paul says, "These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, …

Who are you following?

Each and every one of us will follow someone, however the person you follow will either lead you to fulfil your potential or will lead you to the wrong place.
Who are you following? A deaf-blind leader always lead someone into a ditch. Paul said, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." Ephesians 5:1-2 
 He reminds us of who to follow and that person is none other than God himself who’s to lead you until you encounter his purpose and will. 
Following God will lead you to a new birth with Jesus, and life in the spirit. You never go wrong with his plan. But if you follow people they’ll lead you to all uncleanness; idolatry, covetousness and fornication. "For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope..."Romans 8:20.
