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!

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

What do you want to see in a 21st century church?

 I wanna see the glory of the Lord come in the temple! Once again, that when I come in the temple, behold, the whole place "is most holy," Ezekiel 43:12, and the glory of the Lord is full in the Temple. I like this verse; “Seven days they shall make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it. When these days are over it shall be, on the eighth day and thereafter, that the priests shall offer your burnt offerings and your peace offerings on the altar; and I will accept you,' says the Lord GOD,” Ezekiel 43:26-27. Now, "…make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it…and I will accept you," says the Lord. There is a river, healing waters; "flowing from under the threshold of the temple," Ezekiel 47:1. "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, wi

The people of Israel

The journey of the people of Israel is a fascinating story, and understanding it could possibly make your own life story too. It began when God called Abraham, and said to him, " Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee " Acts 7:3. He obeyed, and he left and lived in Haran, in a country they now call Israel. But God, gave him no " inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child " Acts 7:5. So, God promised that eventually the whole country would belong to him and his descendants, but these descendants of his would leave the land and live in a foreign country and there become slaves for 400 years. He said  I will punish the nation that enslaves them, and afterwards they will return to this land of Israel and worship me here. Later, Isaac was born, and Isaac had Jacob, and Jaco
