These things became our examples!

Reverend LC Muzembi
"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it" 1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV

Temptations are wrong desires that come into our lives, not new though to mankind for many others have faced exactly the same problems before us, but  God is faithful, he will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can’t stand up against it, and will make a way for you to escape.

 Many others have faced exactly the same problems before us, and "now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come" 1 Corinthians 10:11.

From them we have learned that "we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted, 1 Corinthians 10:6. We must not desire evil things as they did.

We are warned also, that we must not;

  • worship idols as they did, 1 Corinthians 10:7.
  • commit fornication, as some of them did, 1 Corinthians 10:8 
  • tempt Christ, or try his patience as some of them did, 1 Corinthians 10:9 
  • murmur against God and his work with you as some of them did, 1 Corinthians 10:10
Take these warnings seriously, and be careful. For you too may fall into sin.

Idolatry or Idol worship

"Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry" 1 Corinthians 10:14.

Is there any other God?

Idolatry is a work of man, rather a work of the flesh, and Paul says, "they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God" Galatians 5:21.

Now hear this, there is no other God except Yahweh, "For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him" 1 Corinthians 8:5-6.

What’s an idol?

An idol is any of these man-made gods, that are worshipped, venerated and revered instead of worshiping the one and only true God. Several of them are concepts developed by various philosophers. But this they do that "ye should have fellowship [partner] with devils," vs 20.

Apostle Paul says, "we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one" 1 Corinthians 8:4. Idolatry is an excuse of wicked men to drag you into devil worship. But, some Christians don't realize this.

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

Questionable circumstances are a red flag

  Stay away from a preacher who never takes time off even if ill/old, who insists on dealing with certain people - that’s a red flag!  Questionable circumstances are a red flag believers have to look out for. Here is how the gospel works; you’re told the news first and then you relay it to others. Never claim ownership of it, instead pass it on, share and never enforce it upon a generation. Treating it as if it is yours is corruption or abuse of the delegated powers. Remember Rome was not built in one day, meaning the gospel is a complex task, it takes all our efforts, and great achievement takes time and effort and should not be rushed. So you pass it own to show that you have understood the gospel. No generation claims supremacy, the fathers passed it own to their sons (kings), prophets to other prophets too, and to Jesus, and Jesus to the apostles (Holy Ghost), and the apostles to us and so forth. I like how John puts it, he said, "I baptize with water: but there standeth one a

Experience God's peace!

Reverend LC Muzembi  "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" Philippians 4:8 KJV Yes my friend, stay true to the Lord, remember he is coming soon. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, and it’s peace which will keep you through this journey.  The Lord said, " Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you " John 14:27. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. And the Apostle said, " Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you " Philippians 4:9. In short, read your bible, study it through, receive its truths with open heart or the hearing of faith, acknowledge
