Voice of Prophecy Week of Prayer-Recap

              
The time was 24th-30th January, the place to be was SR 16 and the event was the Voice of Prophecy week of prayer. Graced by one eloquent lady who turned out to be both articulate and meticulous in simple a manner, it was definitely a good way to kick start the semester and year for that matter. She was Keziah Moraa, and one of her favorite lines was “Follow me, you are sure not to get lost, for I am following the Holy Spirit”. And so it was.

Some prophecy amateurs like yours truly gained exceedingly much from the teachings,even quoting Bible verses.Well,not with the exact precision of one Elder Collins Omiti but atleast we learnt.Ask Elder Ngare and I to explain the meaning of "desolating sacrilege spoken of by Daniel" in Matthew 24:15 and we'll be glad to tell a tale.

Here is  how the week went down,in a nutshell:


DAY 1-THESE ARE THE END TIMES

The night started with a brief singing session followed by prayer time. Being the first day of the week,the presenter chose to start on a high note. And what better way to do so than to give Luke 21:31 as the first verse: “So likewise ye,when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh”. The Book of Matthew chapter 24 also gives a very clear-cut message on the things Jesus said MUST happen before He comes back the second time.Most of these prophecies have actually been fulfilled,proving beyond reasonable doubt that truly the Word of God is truth.


DAY 2-BIBLE PROPHECY

On this day which was Monday, Sister Keziah delved into the deep waters of the Book of Daniel and Revelations, taking the congregation along with her. Systematically the Holy Spirit led her as she guided us through Daniel 2:31-33 which talks of the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar and its interpretation as given by Daniel. This was definitely a day not to miss as history was brought to life by both scripture and world events.


DAY 3-SPIRITUAL DARKNESS

We learnt that we are approaching the end of this earth's history, and Satan is working as never before. He is striving to act as director of the Christian world. With an intensity that is marvelous he is working with his lying wonders { LDE 155.1}

 "If it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect" [Matthew 24:24]. From false prophets who come in the name of the Lord, assuming the title of holiness that only God and God alone should be worthy of, they masquerade to be sheep when really wolves.(Philippians 2:5-8). Their expensive lifestyles do not reflect the image of Jesus Christ who being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.


DAY 4-THE SHAKING
On Wednesday it was time to take the prophecy story a notch higher. The topic of the day did not disappoint.

Ellen G White expressly defines this shaking that will take place in the last days in the Great Controversy page 464 paragraph 1 “Before the final visitation of God's judgments upon the earth there will be among the people of the Lord such a revival of primitive godliness as has not been witnessed since apostolic times. This shaking is likened to the time when Jesus went to the temple and found people selling and buying, He chased them away for turning His house of prayer into a den of thieves(Matthew 21:12-13).Such is the purging and cleansing that should take place not only in the church but in our own very hearts.

DAY 5-THE SEVEN TRUMPETS AND SEVEN PLAGUES

With precision and consistent bible verses, Thursday was the day to tackle this topic that is deemed difficult by those that have not studied it. We even went back to the book of Exodus (Chapter 8-10) to relate the plagues of the time of Pharaoh to the end times.

The intricate relationship of the book of Revelation to the Old Testament sorely proves the elasticity and truth of the Bible.


DAY 6-CHRISTS’ RETURN

On Friday Vespers which was impressively attended, Christ’s return was the message. A message of hope. It makes us try, even when we are bound to fail. It’s the wind for our sails as Christians. Yet we are told of that day and hour, no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the son, but the Father only.(Matthew 24:36).It goes on to say that He shall come like a thief, at a time when no one is expecting.(Vs. 43)

As much as that may sound frightening, this knowledge is to urge us to be on watch at all times, and to be faithful to the end when we will see Him coming in His glory in the clouds of air.


DAY 7-FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS

It was the Sabbath once again! Best day of all weeks and this one was no exception. No exception because even the district Pastor was in attendance, Pastor Maasi in flesh.Sister Keziah was the main speaker. Speaking she did. Of Mount Zion and Calvary, of Mount Carmel and Pisgah. Of Mount Moriah and Sinai.All these mountains where the fathers of faith exalted God, are the mountains to which we should run even today.


All in all, the voice of prophecy week that ended on Saturday evening was phenomenal.To say the least. It reminded us that as Adventists we should be alert and watch unto prayer,even as  we wait for the 2nd coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen and amen!

Stand Firm - By Mr. Michael

By Mr. Michael,

Following the statutes of God is a long and tough journey that with our own strength we cannot manage to stay in His rightful way. in order to always remain in the path of light a midst all the Babylonian activities taking place around us, we should focus on standing firm to our statutes and professing what we truly believe in in all aspects of our lives.

When we look at Daniel 1:8- "But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself." KJV; we get to know how Daniel made a choice not to take a path that was not of God. Instead, chose what he knew would please Jehovah and asked to be put to test. We find later verses that Daniel's health and those of his friends proved to be much better than the others who fed from the king's table. I have to say that it is really rewarding to follow the path of GOD.


Do we at this time hold on to the teachings that are imparted into us at church, or at public Evangelical meetings? Some people have branded some Bible verses cliches, yet such verses depict our great story of redemption. 

There is no other element in the world that can make us follow the way of light apart from the Word of God. David attests to this truth in Psalms 119:105 - "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." KJV.  

God designed us to be heroes and not losers  We can therefore not allow ourselves to lose the battle between us and the prince of darkness  We have to choose for ourselves whom we shall serve, "...either the god of the Amorrites or the God who saved us from the hands of the Egyptians..." Joshua gave the Israelites these two options to choose from. Which one shall you choose today? Our choice determines our destiny with God, and if we are going to make the right choice today, we will be saved, and the Heavens shall rejoice.

Babylon stands in our path to righteousness. Babylonian activities take place all round our working environments, learning environments, and even worshiping environments. Are we going to stand firm and profess our beliefs and deny to follow up such unrighteousness? 

Brothers and sisters in Christ, Christ is the only way to our success, his word is the only shield to prevent us from falling into temptations due to the things happening around us. Let us then wear the whole Armor of God:

Ephesians 6:10-18

New International Version (NIV)

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Far from Home, There is danger- Sabbath Vespers

This Friday the 29th of June 2012, the Lord saw to it that this kind of message be told to His people in Musda Main, together with those who are able to read from this page. The Lord spoke so softly into our hearts by telling us how much being far from Home is a danger unto us. He tells us how much being away from the feet of Jesus Christ is bringing danger to our lives, by giving the enemy more chance to walk on us.

This message is seeded in a number of Biblical experiences that God uses to elaborate unto us how much we really need to stay by His side to stay safe from the wrath of this world.
In the book of Ruth, we are looking at the story of Elimelech, the husband of Naomi from Ruth 1: 1-6 -

Naomi and Her Daughters-in-Law
Ruth 1
1 Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehemjudah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons.
