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,

Grant, O Lord, thy protection!

Reverend LC Muzembi May the Lord keep you safe. May he  shelter, cover, shield and defend you from harm all through your life. May you visibly see that he is doing so, not hearsay. Don’t even guess, but know for children who are under the protection of their parents don't even guess, but they know that their parents are keeping them safe. " If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? " How Luke 11:13. He's already given you the Holy spirit. " How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? " Hebrews 9:14. There's protection for you in the blood of Jesus. " If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little fait

Is the day of Christ at hand?

Jesus is coming back soon, but before Christ is come, a falling away is first. "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition" 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2. It is obvious that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon, and that we all shall be gathered together to him, but he shall come on a day we not aware of. May the Lord please direct your heart "into the love of God, and into the patiently waiting for Christ." Waiting doesn’t mean you should stop your day to day work. Paul said, "Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that

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
