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,

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: …

Your kingdom come!

One of the disciples said to Jesus, "Lord, teach us to pray," and he said, "When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth" Luke 11:2.

"...Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven..." You find this in the King James Version, some other translations don’t have this, and you can understand why from scripture.

After resurrection the disciples came together and asked Jesus "Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth" Acts 1:6-8.

The Holy Ghost came to give us who believe an experience of "things pertaining to the ki…
