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,

The Spectacles of Love

We know God through love, loving one another.  "He who does not love does not know God, for God is love," 1 John 4:8. "Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another," 1 John 4:11 Only love gives us the assurance we want, that we know him, we have no fear, but boldness on the day of judgment. But love  aught to have been perfected among us to see us through. He who claims he knows God must first wear his spectacles of love, “And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him,” 1 John 4:16.  Jesus said it’s a new commandment, and you as a believer should realise how important it is to love, to love your brother also. One can’t see as they should without the spectacles of love. Who is a liar? One whose speech is cheap, measly and worthless; who says I love God, yet hates his brother or sister, that kind of love or faith is substandard, is below what is required. There is yet

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

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
