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 weapons of our warfare!

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong" 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV

The weapons of our warfare are mighty through God, they are in the simplicity of Christ, in the fruit of the Spirit; "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law" Galatians 5:22-23.

"If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities" 2 Corinthians 11:30. "So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye m…

Contend for the Faith!

You’re in Jesus Christ as God’s plan of salvation for you;
He called you, and you said yes in Jesus, wherein you are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved. In him is God’s mercy, and peace, and love multiplied towards you.
You are sanctified and preserved in Christ by God the Father, and not you alone, it’s a common salvation - it is the case throughout the world. The whole world is going after him. What happened to me happened also to you and to all who believe in God through Christ around the world.
Here is why God chose you, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" Jude 1:3.
We earnestly contend for the faith,  [or defend] the common salvation, that it remains the same as it was first delivered.
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."…

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts!

Pursue love for if you don't love, you’re nothing; love the brotherhood!

No matter what you say, what you believe, and what you do, you’re nothing without love.

" Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away" 1 Corinthians 13:8. Yes all these will someday come to an end, but love goes on forever, "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity" 1 Corinthians 13:13.

If you didn’t love others, with all that you do, you would only be making noise.

"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things" 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. With this we know we lov…
