Perilous times shall come!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend LC Muzembi
"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come" 2 Timothy 3:1 KJV

Perilous times shall come; and here is how you will know; "men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away" 2 Timothy 3:3-5.

What it means, as believers your faith is exposed to imminent risk of disaster or ruin, "and because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold" Matthew 24:12.

Iniquity is in nothing but our conduct. Paul said men, meaning you and me shall be lovers of our own-selves. It’s not only the people in world who are proud, but us christians also. It’s not sinners but believers who’ve a form of godliness, who are unholy, trucebreakers, false accusers, traitors, heady, highminded and despisers of those that are good. It’s the Christian capable of resisting the Holy Ghost.

Perilous times shall come, "the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron" In 1 Timothy 4:1-2.

Danger isn’t in the world, but is among us people who believe. It’s us who make life difficult for those who believe.  I hear the Lord say, "And a man's foes shall be they of his own household" Matthew 10:36. False prophets and false teachers are they who make it difficult, precarious and hazardous for believers who want to keep the faith. These resist, even vain talkers and deceivers and gainsayers.

Perilous times shall come, and folks these already are the last days. I trust in the living God, that you will be different, and be able to keep the faith, and in all manner of your conversations, "exercise thyself rather unto godliness" 1 Timothy 4:7. Love the people of God; "be sober, just, holy, and temperate" Titus 1:8. Above this allow,  the Holy Ghost to keep you in sound doctrine.

God bless,

The Wedding at Cana

This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him, John 2:11 KJV. The first time Jesus performed a miracle (revealed his glory) was at a wedding in Cana. Jesus' mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. Wine ran out, and Jesus' mother told him, " They have no more wine ." She went to him anticipating a miracle, and Jesus said, " Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come " John 2:4. But she tells the servants anyway, " Whatever He says to you, do it ."  This you should also know my friend, tell him your need anyway, and " Do whatever he tells you ." But be fully aware of the divine timing also. The timing by which waters are stirred up or the spirit moves is set by the Father. Jesus said to them, " Fill the waterpots with water. " And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, " Dr

Is the day of Christ at hand?

Jesus is coming back soon, but before Christ is come, a falling away is first. "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition" 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2. It is obvious that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon, and that we all shall be gathered together to him, but he shall come on a day we not aware of. May the Lord please direct your heart "into the love of God, and into the patiently waiting for Christ." Waiting doesn’t mean you should stop your day to day work. Paul said, "Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that

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 G
