Detoxification - beware of yeast!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend Muzembi 
I've chosen this scripture to illustrate my point of detoxification.

"How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees" Matthew 16:11-12.

Jesus once said to his disciples; "How is it that ye do not understand that I spake?" And to address the problem he said  "ye should beware of the leaven..."

Here this my friend; you can only hold one religion at a time, not two, but "One Lord, one faith, one baptism,"(Eph 4:5). Once you’ve been indoctrinated with a belief then that's it - you're done. You'll have no more room for any other religion - you can now not serve two masters. Jesus said beware of yeast because as a fermenting agent it has the potential to cause disease, and "... no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish" (Luke 5:37). You're that vessel which needs to beware what's put in you.

I'm afraid though for some of us who are full-up of the old such that we have no room for the new. You need to go through a process of detoxification in order to have a new fresh anointing. Hebrews 5:12 says, "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat."

The word you've heard over the years is like food consumed that can putrefy and produce toxins that can harm the body, and to detox is the only way to rid your spirit, soul and body of those undesirable elements in your walk with God. No way you will be able to handle the new wine in the same status quo.
The disciples couldn't understand  because of bad  "toxins"  they'd accumulated from the Pharisees. Each time he would teach them they would cross reference with the Pharisees.

So Jesus had to detox them, "then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees." Some believers don’t understand when I we teach, Beware of false teachers and false prophets.

But the disciples later realised how bad Pharisees habits were when they started to hold on to a single faith. False prophets are a harmful batch of individuals that allegedly exert undesirable effects and unbelief among others.

"Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness" Luke 11:35. You find Pharisees everywhere, Proverbs 30:28 says, "The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces." Beware!

"Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God" Ephesians 5:17-21. Get rid of the old wine, but be filled with the Spirit if indeed you want to know/understand what the will of the Lord is for your life.

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

When I am weak, then I am strong!

What is it in which you are inferior to other people, to other believers, other churches, etc? Is it your lack, need, illness, or weakness? Paul says, "for in nothing was I behind the most eminent apostles, though I am nothing," "…most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me," 2 Corinthians 12:9 "And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, " and be found of such as you do not wish; with "contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, backbitings, whisperings, conceits, tumults," 2 Corinthians 12:20. “… I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong," 2 Corinthians 12:10.  He says I take pleasure in infirmities, "lest, … my God will humble me among you, and I shall mourn for many who have sinned before and have not repented of the unclean

The Word of life!

The word of life is eternal life preached, manifested, or exhibited to you. The choice is yours my friend, to want to look upon, touch, hear, declare or bear witness of the same, but “whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him," 1 John 2:5. The message of the word of life is, eternal life, that God is light, and that we have fellowship with Him if we walk just as He walked. And now because you have the light of God, "darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining," 1 John 2:8. There is no cause for stumbling in you. The apostle says, “I have written to you, … Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one," 1 John 2:14.  It is the word of truth, an anointing,  "the same teaches you concerning all things," 1 John 2:27. Let this truth abide in you, and you abide in Him. He who does the will of God abides forever! "We have an Advoc
