We believe and are sure!

Jesus performed a miracle and fed five thousand men. When the people realised what a great miracle he had done, they said, "Surely, he is the Prophet we have been expecting!"

The bible says, "when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone" John 6:15.

Tell you what folks, Jesus’ mission wasn’t about governing a state, he didn’t even call us to be patriotic or that we should tackle so called corrupt governments otherwise Jesus would have dealt with the Romans. I hear him well saying, "Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations" Luke 16:9. It’s okay to be humanitarian, but as believers that’s not our calling too. He didn’t call us to fulfil some thinking that  "he is the Prophet we have been expecting" to  feed people with manna. Folks, should always know that servants of God are sent to us on God’s terms, not their expectations. We’ve two great men of God in Zimbabwe, among others; Ezekiel Guti and Andrew Wutawunashe - these serve on God’s terms, not ours. They will never conform to our wishful thinking.

Anyway the bible says "when the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they also got into boats and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus. And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, "Rabbi, when did You come here?" John 6:22-25.

"Jesus answered them and said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him." John 6:26-27.

It’s because of false prophets that people’s hopes are misplaced. Jesus said, These filthy dreamers, "in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men" Matthew 15:9.

Why are you looking for Jesus my friend? The reason you look for him shouldn’t  be to be fed, but should be because you believe in him that he’s the Messiah. He said, "you shouldn't be so concerned about perishable things like food. No, spend your energy seeking the eternal life that I, the Messiah, can give you. For God the Father has sent me for this very purpose." You my friend should be familiar with what Jesus came here both to serve and to do, unless you should labour in vain.

Then they said to Him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?" Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent." John 6:28-29. First, Trust him, it is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: "the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life," he said.

Then Simon Peter said, "we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God" John 6:69. Are you sure my friend, do you trust him like they did? They said we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ.

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
