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

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

How much do people know about you?

Hezekiah answered, " They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them, " Isaiah 39:4. I can hear Isaiah say, " What? " Then Hezekiah said, it doesn’t matter Isaiah, " They came to me from a far country, from Babylon ." What can they do? Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, " Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,' says the LORD. 'And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon .'" Isaiah 39:5-7. How much do people know about you my friend? Everything? Then hear the word of the Lord! This reminds me of one president. Someone said of him I don't think he can now be trusted with intelligence briefing, and in the futur
