The mystery of God

Reverend LC Muzembi
As a believer, you should acknowledge the mystery of God. You need clear understanding of the godhead, that God is one.

Acknowledge the Father, acknowledge also Christ, but because we say God is one, the temptation is to accept one while we reject, deny or do not recognise the other’s individuality. But, just as you confess Christ, agree also, or admit, approve and declare that God is, the Father, and each one for who they’re to you.

Apostle Paul said, "And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words," Colossians 2:4. He said, "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ" Colossians 2:8.

We had a go on this discussion when we were studying Hebrews Chapter 1. There I said there is no excuse for us whatsoever, to not know the godhead, and how each member functions. It’s given for us to know the mystery of God, that ‘there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time" 1 Timothy 2:5-6.

Does God want you to know him? Yes He does, so that you may be saved, and come to "the knowledge of truth."

Here are a few truths for you to take home;

Agree or admit that God has a Son, "whom he hath appointed heir of all things..." Hebrews 1:2. He said, "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son" Hebrews 1:5. Now that he’s a Son, He is "the brightness of his glory..." Hebrews 1:3.

Is it okay for you to worship the Son? Certainly, it does no harm for you to worship him because God said, "let all the angels of God worship him" Hebrews 1:6. However, you should know he’s more of an intercessor/mediator for you, to ransom you and reconcile you back to the Father. This the reason he’s "sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high" Hebrews 1:3.  You shouldn’t confuse their roles. Philosophy, even Theology teaches us otherwise.

Theology is tradition of men, are rudiments of the world, but not what  Christ taught us. In John 17:25-26 He said, "O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it..."

"Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God" Colossians 2:18-19. Trinity is the evidence, proof that man by wisdom cannot know God.

Don't let anyone assert  that you are  lost because you refuse to accept their theology. Some of the things they teach "have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body" Colossians 2:23, but they have no effect when it comes to doing God’s will.

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
