Harsh punishments from God of Christians to His people

The entire Bible God-breathed to teach, rebuke, correct and train in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). If you have taken time to read the Bible, you will know that God some commandments that are very demanding to the average human yet they should be observed by all means. Among many things, God can kill, curse, strike with sickness and destroy. This is the same God that saves, loves, heals, blesses and redeems people.

It is not surprising that some skeptics openly reject the God of Christians for that He can punish His own people very harshly. They have searched the scriptures to discover that some of the things God did are very much unlike Him according to what they have been taught about Him. There are websites that are totally dedicated to tarnishing God of Christians because of some specific Bible verses. God’s nature is the same in both the Old and New Covenant. However, the good thing about this belief is that at least such people believe that God implemented what He promised for any condition He had set.

The only way is to work for God for His glory

God the designer of man gave mankind the will to choose how to live in this world. God did this for His own divine purpose. I believe He made it this way so that man can have the option to work as much as he/she can to please God and build to the heavenly reward (1 Corinthians 3:11-14). If God had made man to be robots that automatically do His will, then He would have made the reward to be the same yet we are taught that it will be according to what each one had done while living in the body  (2 Corinthians 5:10).

Mbabane alliance old sermon played on Swazi TV – Siyakudumisa

Rev J. V. Mazibuko

Today on the populous long time playing television Christian program ‘Siyakudumisa’ a sermon that was recorded at Mbabane Alliance Church, which I estimate was recorded more than 5 years ago, was played. To support my claim, the structure which the sermon was recorded on does not exist anymore. It was demolished and a new one was built in its place.

The anger side of God

God has an anger side that is not much talked about in Christian circles today. As a matter of fact, Jehovah’s witnesses and many other Christian groups out rightly reject the fact that God can express His anger to His wonderful creation, which is man, to the point of letting them suffer their consequences. Let alone the final damnation of hell that is eternal (Matthew 10:20).

Just like every man has the other side which gets triggered when that person is exposed to some environment, God has the same qualities. No wonder we are made from His image. God’s anger is upon those that disobey Him, no matter the status given to that person in this world. This includes pastors, bishops, prophets, evangelists, deacons, etc. It is true that God is love (1 John 4:8), He has plans to prosper us (Jeremiah 29:11) and all that is good comes from Him (James 1:17). It is also important for us not to deceive ourselves to overlook the anger side of God.

The danger in taking everything we do for granted

Just when I sat down to write this article, I thought of a title that would be SEO tasty but couldn’t come up with one that would still maintain the weight of what I want to discuss and still be SEO friendly. I settled for this one knowing it might not be an SEO friendly one but I do believe that anyone that finds this article will know that I wrote for a person not the internet.

I believe it is appropriate for me to mention that we live in a world full of the devil’s schemes yet he wants people not to realize it. The devil glories in anonymity. Many people would think what they end up doing comes from their own reasoning yet it is largely influenced by the devil’s schemes. The devil is not in games but working hard and seriously because he knows that his time is very limited (Revelation 12:12). This reality is hidden in the deep things of Satan that the Bible talks about in Revelation 2:24. This world is terrible. Unless you make every effort to stay close to God at all times, you run the risk of mission Heaven.

Why should everyone take the trouble of being a true Christian?

Being a Christian is a choice yet not an easy one as many may have declared. Before I give reasons for taking the trouble to become a Christian, I will first outline why I believe being a Christian is not easy.

Christianity has some standards and failing to meet them by the slightest of error disqualifies the believer. This calls for the believer to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and correct the error, failing which face the very serious consequences. I will start by listing some of the requirements that are really not easy to meet and then given the justification of keeping on even when it is not easy.

The trinity in the Old Testament

The Holy Trinity is one major doctrine of Christianity. It is true that word ‘trinity’ is not recorded anywhere in the Bible yet there are many portions in that detail or unveil this belief to be valid. I have watched many Youtube videos on how some Christians define the trinity including Nabeel Qureshi and many others.

God is not the Father of the dead – Mark 12:27

Jesus Christ had a lot of questions to answer to people while He lived in this world. He still is giving answers to people’s questions even today. I have written an article addressing the question on how God speaks to people today. You may read the article ‘How does God speak to people today? If you have a question, you can get a response directly from Him.

In the Gospel of Mark 12, Jesus is faced with Sadducees where He has to give answers about the resurrection. They wanted to know who among seven brothers would a woman whom they all had as a wife belong to after this life. They thought there is a marriage life after death but only to learn that this is not the case. Jesus’ answer unveils a lot of heavenly secretes that compels the Sadducees to stop asking. I will focus on Jesus’ declaration that God is not of the dead and term it Revelation 2, which is supported by that when we die we are given bodies similar to those of angels, which I categorize as Revelation 1 in the next section.

A word of encouragement to preach the true Gospel

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is preached all over yet there are so many doctrines that are contradicting each other. Often this is not intentional but results from misinterpreting what the Bible teaches. It is common to hear Christians discussing one topic but coming out with different ways of practicing it. The easier route out is often largely adopted and it normally is the one that prevails. The harder route is abandoned yet Jesus Christ Himself clearly stated that the gate that leads to life is very narrow. The sad this is that He went on to say that ‘many will try to find it but very few find it’.

Every believer should be clear on what the Bible teaches. It calls for critical Bible study, research and praying. Each verse of the Bible has been inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16). This means that for every Bible verses is God owned. Thus He won’t let any return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11). I know that this may give some readers the impression that I am brain washed to believe in the Bible in this fashion. I have written a full article on why we believe that the Bible is God’s word.

Was the Bible written to oppress woman?

Women are no less of people than man according to the Bible but God has commandments for each. In our time, it is easy for some people to believe that the Bible was written by people to oppress women. I received this response when I passed a comment on a youtube video by Yabantu.tv where I reminded the author that woman should be modest in their dress code. The image on the side is a screen capture of the response from the author of the video.

Yabantu is largely characterized by half necked women that justify their outfit by culture. The mostly exposed parts of their body are breasts. A modestly dressed woman should not expose her breasts at any rate except in privacy, whenever there is a compelling need or to her husband but never in public. An example of a compelling need is a medical checkup or something related. Now that we have been enlightened on what God wants from us, we should comply even when it means banishing some of our cultural practices.

Dealing with the pain of losing a loved one at their prime age (Part 1)

Pain is part of life yet it is undesirable by all means. Naturally, pain should be avoided even when it means losing some resources such as money and time. Everything else stops to give way to means of managing or eliminating pain where possible.

Pain must be controlled because if it is not, it can have serious consequences to its victims. The good thing is that the Bible records instances of pain experienced by some of Bible icons such as Job and David. Through their experiences, we learn how God helped them deal with their pain, which helps us understand how we also can deal with our pain.

Why we believe that the Bible is God’s word

The Bible has long been declared to be the infallible word of God by those that have gone before us and we have adopted that as a true declaration. I have been sensitized to write this post after having watched a video on YouTube where someone is giving his reasons why he quit Christianity. Many people that responded to his video agree to his views that the Bible is not the word of God. I felt compelled to respond and I do want to share my position on this matter again in this post.

Will God understand when He gives judgment on you?

Jesus lived in this world for more than 30 years and He knows how it feels to be tempted because He also was tempted but He conquered. Hebrews 4:15 says, “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet he did not sin”. Jesus is our advocate to God the Father and He works through the Holy Spirit who helps us in our weaknesses (Romans 8:26 –Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses”).

The environment of God’s judgment

God’s judgment is coming to all the living. The dead already know about their position. The reason to worry over this is because the only instrument that shall be use is the Word as recorded in the Holy Bible. Therefore, not reading and doing what the Bible teaches has a lot more to it than being lazy to read it. Everyone has himself or herself to blame if they do not know the laws of God as recorded in the Bible. This is one book that is widely available in many languages and sometimes with different version in one language. It does not cost a lot and often a free one can be secured if you really can’t afford one.

This is one of a very important yet personal post I have posted in this blog. This message is directed to each and every individual that shall read it. I invite you to consider this message as one of a kind in your lifetime.

If it sin to wear a make-up, why then do we wear shoes?

Modest dressing upI believe that wearing make-up and any artificial attachments life finger nails, weave and lipstick is not acceptable to God as I have already written two articles on this subject already. The articles are the following:

  1. Is make-up, lipstick, hair dye, make up and all artificial attachments an abomination to God?
  2. Is it sin for woman to wear trousers, weave and make up?
