What do you see now?

Zechariah, in a vision he saw a candlestick with seven lamps, and at the top it had a bowl and oil was flowing through seven tubes feeding the seven lamps. He said to the angel, I see "two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof" Zechariah 4:3, and he then asked, "What are these, my lord? What does this mean?

I am a typical example of him, for I also ask about anything. Anyway, meanwhile Zerubbabel was busy building the temple, and by all means had laid the foundations, facing resistance from every angle. His dilemma was twofold; he was building God a house but the problem God wasn’t building with him, and resistance.

Then the angel said to Zechariah, "Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord." Zechariah 4:5.

It’s good news for Zerubbabel!

"...This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it." Zechariah 4:6-7.

This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, it’s time now you let God do the work.

It’s good news for you too my friend, you don’t have to labour to do God’s work, "For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth" Zechariah 4:10.

You don’t need to fight in this battle, for God has chosen you to fight for you. "Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord" Zechariah 2:10.

Sing and rejoice; for the Lord has chosen you again. He has chosen you to be his portion and Holy habitation.

He says, "lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord." For I, saith the Lord, will be ... a wall of fire round about you, and will be the glory amidst you! "...he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye" Zechariah 2:8.

What is pastor saying? I’m saying have hope, and grace to you ; "And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure" 1 John 3:3.

God bless,

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.

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, …

Why we go to church

Church is a place where the Lord your God has chosen to place his name there.

Moses said, thou shalt go there, "and worship before the Lord thy God" Deuteronomy 26:10.

You go to Church to worship the Lord, and to "rejoice in every good thing which the Lord thy God hath given unto thee, and unto thine house..." Deuteronomy 26:11. While there also you petition the Lord to bless you too.

Deuteronomy 26:16-19 says, "This day the Lord thy God hath commanded thee to do these statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore keep and do them with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. Thou hast avouched the Lord this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice: And the Lord hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, a…
