Such is our expectation!

Isaiah said a message came to me, (from chapter 15 through to 20) concerning Moab, Syria, Ethiopia, Egypt and even Israel. It wasn’t an ordinary message but a burden affecting many generations. 

He saw what life was like before Christ, it was unbearable; all people were gripped by fear, and because they had no respect for God they would helplessly sorrow and mourn to their idols, but no matter how much they prayed to these other gods/idols they "would not prevail," Isaiah 16:12. God wasn’t hearing them either. Everyone would wail bitterly because of their troubles, life itself was intolerable and burdensome. 

But Isaiah 16:5 says only "in mercy the throne will be established; And One will sit on it in truth, in the tabernacle of David, Judging and seeking justice and hastening righteousness."

So when Jesus came he became man’s saviour, and in his days onwards, man again began looking to his Maker, and once again his eyes had "respect for the Holy One of Israel," Isaiah 17:7, and verse 8 says, "He will not look to the altars, The work of his hands; He will not respect what his fingers have made, Nor the wooden images nor the incense altars." I hope this is true with you too my friend.

When you look to your Maker, and your eyes have respect for Him, simultaneously your life changes. 

So why are people today still gripped with fear and sorrow? 

It’s because some still have no respect for God, they haven’t yet received the good news, and Isaiah said there is desolation, "Because you have forgotten the God of your salvation, And have not been mindful of the Rock of your stronghold," Isaiah 17:10.

But while others experience grief and desperate sorrow, remember my friend that Jesus came to be saviour, and is hastening righteousness. Such is our expectation, to be delivered.

The prophet said, "In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD at its border.

And it will be for a sign and for a witness to the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the LORD because of the oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One, and He will deliver them. Then the LORD will be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians will know the LORD in that day, and will make sacrifice and offering; yes, they will make a vow to the LORD and perform it. And the LORD will strike Egypt, He will strike and heal it; they will return to the LORD, and He will be entreated by them and heal them," Isaiah 19:19-22.

Don’t see any other altar my friend except that of the Lord Jesus Christ; Look on Him and cry to him only, and He will deliver you, and such is our expectation.

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
