He will set up a banner for the nations!

Isaiah 11
Isaiah saw a word that revealed to him the days of the Lord; he saw the Lord’s birth, death and resurrection and the peace we all have received because of Him. 

Remember how in time past we were not a people my friend, but now we’re the people of God: we had not obtained mercy, but now we have obtained mercy. Isaiah said; "The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined," Isaiah 9:2.

We’re not perfected as yet. Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in our vexation. 

Anyway, let’s move on. Here he said, "It shall come to pass in that day...the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil," Isaiah 10:27.

He said, "And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, and might; the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord," Isaiah 11:2.

In His days, Christ’s days, our days, all the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, He is a banner of salvation and of peace, justice and equity,  righteousness and faithfulness to all the world. He himself has set up that banner, his own cross for the nations.

Isaiah said, "Also the envy of Ephraim shall depart, And the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off; Ephraim shall not envy Judah, And Judah shall not harass Ephraim," Isaiah 11:13.  They’ll be no reason for quarrels because they’ll altogether become one; "one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all," Ephesians 4:4-6.

In these days of the Lord, He himself is standing as a banner to the people, the people will see and flow/dwell together and endeavour to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid," John 14:27.

When we say peace, some believers become afraid because they associate peace with the end of times, but Christ said, "Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." Why? Because it’s His peace, not that the world gives. He said, "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD As the waters cover the sea," Isaiah 11:9.

Someone is asking where is that peace? Isaiah 11:11 says, "It shall come to pass in that day That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left..." And His resting place shall be glorious.

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
