The obedience of faith!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend LC Muzembi 
" Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation about Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept silent for long ages but now revealed and made known through the prophetic Scriptures, according to the command of the eternal God to advance the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles - to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ-to him be the glory forever! Amen" Romans 16:25-27 CSB.

My friend, I know God is able to strengthen you  through these articles of mine. The preaching of Christ is so that you may have faith in him and as you obey him, you will be established, as you grow through his word.

God wants to establish you through scripture, and  reward you for your obedience of faith. But first, He must bring  into captivity your thoughts to the obedience of Christ; that you have “a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled" 2 Corinthians 10:5-6.

Obedience, i.e.  Your faith in him is it that shows you’re ready to revenge all disobedience.

Hebrews 11:2 says, For by it [faith] the elders obtained a good report, and we see in Romans 16 how others believed and it was counted unto them for righteousness.

  • Phoebe made herself useful in the church she belonged, she helped many who believed, and the man of God, vs 1-2.
  • Priscilla and Aquila availed themselves to all the churches, not only to the one in their house, but they were coworkers in the ministry of Christ, they risked even their own lives, Romans 16:3-5
  • Mary, the Apostle said she worked so hard to our benefit., vs 6. And some were genuine, like good friends, and hard working.


But "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple" Romans 16:17-18

Stay away from those who cause divisions, whose aim is to destroy other people's faith, teaching things about Christ that are contrary to what you have been taught. Stay away from Balaams, Judas Iscariots, and Demas who’re evil workers.

"And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen" Romans 16:20.

Always remember, God will strengthen you, not by your own effort, but by his spirit which works in you through the prophetic Scriptures, according to the command of the eternal God to advance the obedience of faith to you.

God bless,
Laurence

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
