We have a great high priest!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend Muzembi 
"So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee. As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec" Hebrews 5:5-6 KJV.

Christ glorified not himself to be high priest, but was appointed by God himself, He was "Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec" Hebrews 5:10.

After the order of Melchisedec, meaning, his priesthood is perpetual, he was not ordained by men, neither did he take this honour upon himself, but he was called of God; ".... for men in things pertaining to God, that [he may without a break offer] both gifts and sacrifices for sins... [and to] have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way..." Hebrews 5:1-2. Apostle Peter says, "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" 2 Peter 3:9. Instead of punishing you for failing to assimilate to common values, he allows people, those with differing values to coexist. Laws exist as formalized morals and are based on restitution rather than revenge.

He was called of God; and for men in things pertaining to God, and it’s worth noting that "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. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" Hebrews 4:15-16.

Yes, he is moved by our infirmities!

The Lord is longsuffering, forbearing, patient and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and as our great High Priest, we know that he’s praying for us, and is interceding for us before our Father - not because we are good, but is patient with us not willing that any should perish. We know also that God listens to him, for in the days of his flesh, he heard him, and more also now because he has been made perfect, and is sat at the right hand of the glory of God to make intercession for us, "And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him" Hebrews 5:9.

God bless,

Jesus is Rejected at Nazareth!

Then Jesus left the wilderness of Judea, where Satan tempted him for forty days, and " returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region. And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all. So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. " Luke 4:14-16 NKJV. Before, full of the Holy Spirit, he spent forty days in the wilderness being tempted by the devil, and now he returns to Galilee, in the power of the Spirit to begin his ministry. He taught in other synagogues, being glorified by all, but here in Nazareth, where He was brought up, is rejected. They handed to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: " The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To

Who are you really working for?

I’m here to help you figure out who you’re really working for, because if you know you will provide great service for him/her, or them, no matter what you do, you need to know who they are and what they’re looking for. Someone is saying I am working for God, but that could be a blanket statement my friend because working for God means feeding His lambs, and is how you offer His sheep the best service possible. For some of us it is more clear cut than for others. I can’t tell you who you are working for, it would be wrong to assume that you’re serving God, men or yourself, etc, but I can help you identify who you’re really working for, and how you can do it with all of your heart if you find it well. Why we serve! We serve God for different reasons, but the work of the Lord couldn’t be same as the work of men or of the world. His is light, with no darkness at all - pure religion! The angel said to the church in Thyatira, “‘ These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of

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
