What defiles a man

Matthew 11:28-30
Come unto me...my yoke is easy, and my burden is light
What defiles a man?

CERTAINLY 

"Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man." Matthew 15:11

BUT

These are the things which defile a man;

"those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man..... evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies" Matthew 15:18-19.

Who is a blind leader?

Hear and understand;

Any who teach for doctrine the commandments of men is a blind leader, these are they who Jesus said, "in vain they do worship me" Matthew 15:9. 

What are commandments of men?

The commandments and doctrines of men are rudiments of this world, which aren’t spiritual put by men  to have you submit to their regulations, things such as saying; "Touch not; taste not; handle not; Which all are to perish with the using" Colossians 2:21-22. These things have a reputation for wisdom but promote only self-made religion, false humility, and self-indulgence, and the Lord said, "This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. They worship me in vain, teaching as doctrines human commands."

Blind leaders rather hypocrites neglect the truth, and consentrate on the less unimportant, but remember my friend it's not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth - this defiles a person.

The worship of those who substitute human religious traditions for the Word is vain, it’ll accomplish nothing, it will have no result, and will be as though it never happened. No good comes, no prayer answered unless we conform to the Word.

So what shall we do?

He replied, "Every plant that my heavenly Father didn't plant will be uprooted" Matthew 15:13.

Resisting Jesus’ ministry will never work, will have no accomplishments. But you and me should strive to be counted on to lead others safely in spiritual matters. He said, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30.


God bless you,

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 is finding God so difficult?

  God says, ‘Here I am’ My hands stretched all day long for you, but “... when I called, you did not answer; When I spoke, you did not hear, But did evil before My eyes, And chose that in which I do not delight," Isaiah 65:12. He said you’ve walked in a way that is not good, i.e. according to you own thoughts. That’s why I "was found by those who did not seek Me." ‘Here I am!‘ The good thing with God is he reveals himself to you, but sadly we choose not to see, seek, listen nor to find him. To “find God” is an expression that can mean different things to different people. For some, is getting religion, whatever religion that may be. For others, to “find God” means to “clean up one’s life,” usually with his help. In any case, to “find God” involves a change in someone’s attitude and behaviour. Biblically speaking, to find God means to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It is only through Jesus that anyone can come to God (John 14:6), and receiving Christ results in a

You are a chosen generation

Reverend Muzembi  " Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded " 1 Peter 2:6 KJV Christ, is very precious to God. He is a chief corner stone upon this spiritual house God is building. You’re precious to God too, and " as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ " 1 Peter 2:5. We’re priests, who offer to God those things that please him - you matter so much to God. Christ is precious to you who believe in God through him, for without him we can do nothing, all our royalty is because him, and to those who reject him still he’s  precious, that when iniquity abounds they may fall. But you are not like them, for  through Christ you have been chosen by God himself, you are God's very own - all this so that you may show to others how God called you o
