Let us go on unto perfection!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend Muzembi 
"Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God" Hebrews 6:1 KJV.

This is what happened to you when you got born again;

  1. You received and understood the Gospel 
  2. You realised how good the word of God is 
  3. You shared in the Holy Spirit
  4. You tasted for yourself the good things of heaven
  5. You tasted the powers of the world to come, and last but not least
  6. You received Christ.

So now that you’re born again, the Lord willing, you need to go on to other things, that will make you even more stronger, and more mature in the faith. For "when the ground soaks up the falling rain and bears a good crop for the farmer, it has God's blessing. But if a field bears thorns and thistles, it is useless. The farmer will soon condemn that field and burn it." Hebrews 6:7-8. This simply means, you have to demonstrate that you’re born of God. This you do when you bring "forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance..." Luke 3:8.

"And this will we do, if God permit" Hebrews 6:3.

The writer says, "beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak" Hebrews 6:9. We’re persuaded better things of you;

  • that you will leave the principles of the doctrine of Christ, and move on unto perfection.
  • that you will bring forth fruit.
  • that you will serve Christ, and minister to the saints, and do minister.

"And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises" Hebrews 6:11-12.

God has given us salvation, both by his promise and his oath, two things we can completely count on, for it is impossible for God to tell a lie. This hope of being saved is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls, connecting us with God himself. We have strong consolation in Christ, who is gone ahead to plead for us from his position as our High Priest.

God bless,

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

Questionable circumstances are a red flag

  Stay away from a preacher who never takes time off even if ill/old, who insists on dealing with certain people - that’s a red flag!  Questionable circumstances are a red flag believers have to look out for. Here is how the gospel works; you’re told the news first and then you relay it to others. Never claim ownership of it, instead pass it on, share and never enforce it upon a generation. Treating it as if it is yours is corruption or abuse of the delegated powers. Remember Rome was not built in one day, meaning the gospel is a complex task, it takes all our efforts, and great achievement takes time and effort and should not be rushed. So you pass it own to show that you have understood the gospel. No generation claims supremacy, the fathers passed it own to their sons (kings), prophets to other prophets too, and to Jesus, and Jesus to the apostles (Holy Ghost), and the apostles to us and so forth. I like how John puts it, he said, "I baptize with water: but there standeth one a

Experience God's peace!

Reverend LC Muzembi  "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" Philippians 4:8 KJV Yes my friend, stay true to the Lord, remember he is coming soon. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, and it’s peace which will keep you through this journey.  The Lord said, " Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you " John 14:27. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. And the Apostle said, " Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you " Philippians 4:9. In short, read your bible, study it through, receive its truths with open heart or the hearing of faith, acknowledge
