They shall enter into my rest!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend Muzembi 
"There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God" Hebrews 4:9 KJV.

Rest similar to the seventh day, wherein "God did rest the seventh day from all his works" Hebrews 4:4. Jesus is also according us with the same rest, and by entering into that rest, we also will cease from all our "own works, as God did from his" Hebrews 4:10.

Under the Gospel dispensation,Christ has accorded us with Spiritual rest, rest from the burden of the law of Moses, and from all toil and labour for life, and salvation by works. We enjoy much inward peace of soul, notwithstanding the world's troubles and Satan's temptations. Such who believe the word or Gospel of Christ with the heart, and in truth, these enjoy this rest; they are kept in perfect peace, and have much spiritual ease and comfort: this character distinguishes them from the unbelieving Israelites of old, and from present hypocrites.

What are you supposed to do?

From day one believe the gospel, and hold on to the promise of entering into his rest, even eternal rest. "Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it" Hebrews 4:1.

It is us who believe that promise God said "they shall enter into my rest," who shall enter in. And the writer says, "Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief" Hebrews 4:11. He said, "Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession" Hebrews 4:14.

Our calling is a profession, and like any other profession you have to be loyal to your boss. Where it is said believe the gospel, it means mix that same word with faith, meaning develop theories from scripture to explain your life situations; events, interactions, and patterns. A theory is a proposed explanation of those patterns, so is faith in the word."For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" Hebrews 4:12. Faith has different scales.

Anyway, "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin" Hebrews 4:15.

Jesus the Son of God, is our high priest; "For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted" Hebrews 2:18, and support them through into glory.

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

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
