Grace be unto you, and peace!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend LC Muzembi 
"To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ" Colossians 1:2 KJV

Grace be unto you, and peace with no limits, from God alone our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I pray when heaven opens, that it may not be for wrath, to condemn you, but for peace.

My friend, your faith must be in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ alone, and none else. You may ask, why Jesus? Because it is through him we cry Abba Father. He alone is chosen of the father "for the hope which is laid up for you in heaven..." Colossians 1:5. It pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell.

Only Jesus can bring you to that hope, by the word of truth which to us is peace.

And here is grace, the word came to you also, and is bringing forth fruit, "as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth" Colossians 1:6. And that peace, is brought to you only through the blood of Jesus at the cross, and there you were reconciled with the Father.

My prayer for you, and desire, is nothing, even religion should distract you from serving and worshiping him, and I pray "that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness" Colossians 1:9.

Don’t you ever forget, no matter what you go through, that redemption is only through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins, and because you’ve believed, you have also been delivered from the power of darkness, and translated into the kingdom of his dear Son.

Keep the faith, and much grace and peace to you.

God bless,
Laurence

The gospel of Christ!

The gospel of God, is that which pertains to His Son Jesus Christ, through him we have received grace and apostleship, to bring about the obedience of faith to all.

Our service is rendered to God, whom we serve by our spirits telling the good news about his Son.

Preaching the gospel is all manner of witnessing and imparting spiritual gifts on God’s people, the believers, the called of Jesus Christ, who are called to be saints. That method of believing is called faith, and mutual faith when we together believe.

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith" Romans 1:16-17.

The gospel of God is that which concerns His Son. God can be known only through the gospel of Christ, and that which may be known of God has now been made manifest in us; for God r…

Partakers of Christ's sufferings!

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy" 1 Peter 4:12-13

It is no shame to suffer for being a Christian, instead it is a privilege, folks. For "if ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye ; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified" 1 Peter 4:14.

Suffer according to God's will, not "as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters" 1 Peter 4:15.  But do what is right folks, and trust yourself to God who made you, for he will never fail you.

"The end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: …

Melchizedek

Melchizedek was king of the city of Salem and also a priest of the Most High God. His name means King of Justice, King of righteousness and King of peace.

Life story 

Melchizedek had no father or mother and there is no record of any of his ancestors. He was never born and he never died but his life is like that of the Son of God - a priest forever. We learn from his life story that a priest’s other job is to bless those who have promises, (ref: Hebrews 7:6). Have we got any promise? Yes loads, and among others we’ve the promise of salvation.

Anyway, I said Melchizedek’s life is like that of the Son of God - a priest forever.  After the Levitical priesthood God sends a new kind of priest, and we can plainly see that God's method changed, for Christ, the new High Priest who came with the rank of Melchizedek, as we all know, Christ did not belong to the priest-tribe of Levi, but came from the tribe of Judah, which had not been chosen for priesthood; Moses had never given them that wo…
