The Gospel is that serious?

The story of the Gospel is a serious story, its a story that has always caused the murder of so many people, think of how Stephen [ Acts 6,7,8] was killed because of Jesus Christ.
Not only was Stephen murderd, Peter, Thomas, Andrew, Nathanael, Matthew, James, Jude, Simon the Zealot, James the Younger, Phillip, Judas, and many other followers of Jesus Christ died horrible deaths!
In the course of History more people would get murderd. Reformers such as William Tyndale, John Hus where brutally murdered as punishment for promoting Christocentric Christianity as opposed to the falsehoods of the Papacy & Catholiscm.
What is it that they preached that warranted death? Peter, Paul, John the Baptist were not propagating a health and wealth gospel, they where not preaching and teaching people how to make more dime! Think about it for a moment, unbelievers thirst for material things and to them the gospel is foolishness but to us it is the power of God.

Thus the Apostles certainly did not appeal to the materialist instincts of the carnal man, but appealed to the elect by means of the proclamation of the gospel which God makes use of to call those that He has predestined unto ertenal life, In fact Apostle Paul warns Timothy in 1 Timothy 6 of false teachers who equate financial gain to godliness.

These men [ Apostles]spoke of Christ as Lord and King, Christ who suffered the wrath of God in order to pay for the sins of the elect, They declared the supremacy of God in all things. Thus where unjustly punished by haters of the gospel, who included those obsessed with the Law of Moses.

The Apostles where by the power of the Holy Spirit emboldened to proclaim Christ, thus all they wrote  showed us perfectly that all scripture is about Christ! The Bible is not a moral rulebook, Its all about Jesus!

[JOHN 5:38You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me]

[LUKE 24:27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. ]

Thus as we study every verse and chapter let us understand that they is always a deeper meaning, This deeper meaning is found in the person and work of Jesus Christ

For example Melchiezedek is a shadow of  Christ, note how just like Christ who is without beginning or end, Melchiezedek also did not have either mother or father. We also find the story of Christ in Isaac, Isaac is a shadow of Christ as a sacrifice, Remember how God instructed Abraham was instructed to sacrifice Isaac, Just as God the Father would have His own Son Jesus Crucified to atone for the sins of the elect. David is a shadow of Christ as a King and reedemer, God promises David would rule forever and this was in reference to Jesus Christ. Boaz and Ruth are shadows of Christ and Church! Watch carefully how Boaz reedems Ruth just like Christ hass reedemed the church.

Thus we are not the ones who give a meaning to scripture, but all scripture inteprets itself in light of CHRIST!

Does the misuse of the bible discredit the fact that its an inspired book?

It is true that many missionaries misused and misinteprted the message the bible but as I will explain below this does not amount into an objection against the fact that the bible is an inspired book and sole rule of faith, neither does this justify the mistaken notion that the bible is untrue or corrupt.I ask, if the bible is taken up by a plunderer, murderer and robber, do we dismiss the value of the bible on basis that it has been misused, do we therefore doubt the usefulness of the bible where it ought to be used in the manner it ought to be used simply because a murderer once misused the bible?

Many European missionaries who came to Africa also read, and did not understand the bible through its Christocentric lens, they intepreted the bible for Africans in such a way that they could get Africans to assent to exploitation by Europeans without ever rising gainst the opressors.

Years ago I dismissed Calvinism/ doctrines of Grace as an invention of the white supremacist largely because i first encounterd calvinism in historical accounts that suggested that the Dutch Reformed Church calvinist theology was partly responsible for apartheid in South Africa.

Obviously some early Dutch settler politicians and clergy where racist and kinist heretics, a coveteous lot in search of worldly riches hence ignored the Christocentric message of the bible [Luke 24:27, John 5:39, Acts 28:23, John 1:45 ] instead twisted the biblical doctrine of predestination & election to mean that they where the predestined elect of God with every right to exploit Africans.

The misuse of scripture does not however disqualify the inspirtation of scripture [ 2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21 ] and its Christocentric message[ Luke 24:27, John 5:39, Acts 28:23, John 1:45 ] thus we cannot conclude that the bible is a terrible document on the basis of those who misintepreted it because they ignored the message and the intent of the Bible

The False Gospel of good works

A gospel of good works is false.It is based on the assumption that your good works, actions, intentions  and innovation no matter how unscriptural, with a little “faith” can cause God to save you or to submit to your wishes howmuchever foolish. The false gospel of works is so prevalent and is the sure cause of all grass eating and insecticide use foolishness, It is also enriching many a false prophet.

The gospel of works runs contrary to the true gospel of grace. Jesus accomplished the work of salvation, you do not need a doom spraying prophet or a pope claiming he can forgive sin to dupe you. Our works and methods in whatsoever form will not make us any holier than the filthiest sinner.

This gospel of grace isnt for the mammon hunters either, because Jesus didnt die so you could accumulate more cash. The world has plenty people who are filthy rich yet they do not believe in Jesus, Go and join them if you need cash better than you need Christ, because the sacrifice Christ made wont offer you both mammon and ertenal life. Well salvation is salvation from the sin and its consequence which is ertenal death. He came to save those called by the Father from sin and He accomplished His mission so so well that you dont have to do anything to help. You neither need doom, grass, annointed objects nor a “priest” to declare you holy. Christ is enough!

Predestination

I subscribe to the biblical doctrine of Sovereign and Free Grace. God before time out of His Sovereign will chose unto redemption to eternal life certain people. This biblical dictrine will yield the following conclusion “We are saved by Sovereign Grace alone through Christ alone” justified by Faith alone which is a gift of God.. ..

The idea that God is sovereign  and therefore does as he pleases in relation to the salvation of men is offensive to many.

 People often assert in protest  “God hasnt chosen anybody, thereby implying that men can freely choose wether or not they want to go to hell”

Others ask, “whats the point of preaching if God has already chosen His own, To which I always “God uses the ministry of the preacher to draw His own unto Himself”

The idea of free will makes God weak, If you can decide what should happen in ertenity then God is no longer sovereign. The false idea of free will is effectively used by false teachers who without failure will always tell you that you can name it and claim as long as you want it

False teachers preach perfomance, and never preach grace, even when they preach grace its always conviniently mixed with perfomance. They preach works and more works as a means of salvation so that they can preach about how you must seed in their ministry to court God`s   favour. 
On basis of scripture, I always insist that works cant save nobody and this is the response I always get “Are you implying that good works cannot get God to save the doer  on account of His good deeds… To which I always reply “Our righteousness is as filthy, if not more filthy than rags..

The gospel isnt for sale

By James Guyo

Lord have mercy to this wicked generation for we have transgressed and made common the blood of the Son of God to reduce Him to all the nonsense that is called church in most places these days.

Sinners are getting bored of the gospel of God’s sovereign and free grace because they have not understood the true nature of their condition.

Sinners have not understood that it is terrible to meet with His Majesty without Christ in your hands.

Sinners have not understood that the gospel is not about physical prosperity. If you played with school the gospel can not help you.

Do not reduce the gospel to meat, fish and loaves.

IT is a spiritual enterprise my friends. Listen to Him who understood it, “”For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?

Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” The exchange is spiritual friends.

You are going to need to make a spiritual exchange and for that the world is not enough to give you.

Repent and believe in the true Gospel of God’s sovereign grace in Jesus Christ. Amen!

Thou shalt not turn Christianity into a political ideology..

Thou shalt not turn Christianity into a political ideology..
This is a reminder to Bible believing Christians in Zimbabwe, that our faith must never be easily hijacked by the circumstances of the day.

Christianity is not a political ideology neither is it a method for advancing any particular economic ideology.

I say this because its easy to get carried away as a Christian, with the headlines of protests for political emancipation to a point of twisting the one message of the bible into a political ideology.
Jesus Himself suffered at the hands of the Romans, even though He had the power to free the Jews from Roman rule.

Even more Jesus` other disciple Matthew was a tax collector, that probably meant Matthew had to collaborate with the Romans, in the days before he became a disciple.

On the other hand was another disciple, Simon the Zealot, an anti Roman Jew.

Christ on calling these men would never entangle himself in the ideology of either man.

The point is clear, Christianity just like its originator is not a political ideology.

Christianity, as every bible believing Christian will know has its sole focus on the Redemptive work of the Holy triune God, who redeems those that He decided to redeem solely out of the pleasure of His will for His Glory. That is the core of our Christian Faith.

We as Christians must not get too excited by such passing tides of political activism to a point of thinking the message of the bible can be turned into a political ideology that suits political preferences of the time.

We must look at worldly methods that are without Christ for what truly they are.
Without Christ, sin is noble, greed is highly esteemed, thieves are wise.

Violence unto destruction though a device of the devil suddenly seems good, in the eyes of the unregenerate. For the world says, between 2 evils, choose of the lesser evil. The world says the end justifies the means.

A BROKE GOVERNMENT AND RICH “CHURCHES”.

..

The Herald Zimbabwe reports that the tax man may start to collect taxes from Churches by November 2015.

Apparently Pasi(The ZIMRA CG) says He doesn’t care how Churches make their money because, Pasi like a lot of my fellow Patriots know that Zimbabwean mega churches are operating in full throttle.

I would never totally support the idea, I feel this is happening because many “churches” have displayed uninterrupted indulgence in creating and promoting a dollar driven and dollar centred religion instead of building Christ following and gospel centred churches. ZIMRA feels therefore its justified to get the money where ever it can find it.

The governing authorities have long viewed prosperity driven religious organisations as a sector that can actually contribute to national coffers. I remember, Walter Mzembi( Tourism Minister) saying once in 2013 that Zimbabwe could tap income from religious tourism, that was around that time of the famed judgement night by Emmanuel Makandiwa.

Then there was miracle money craze, How else could a Commissioner General of Tax Authority understand this more so when a government badly needs money, to him the prosperity driven religious organisations are making money. They no longer deserve to be treated as charitable organisations rather He sees these organisations in the same way He sees any profit making ZSE listed company hence His insistence on taxing “churches”.
