Zimbabwe: Don't Challenge God's Principles

God created the life we live today for us to benefit. The power of God to create and sustain His creation lies in His integrity. God does not lie and God is permanently and eternally Holy. God does not change, He is the faithful and true witness (Revelation 3 v 14). When He created all things and that they are still obeying Him is a clear indication that God is a supreme being of unquestionable integrity.

He created the sun, moon and stars thousands of years ago and today they are still in their courses, obeying God, giving us light on a daily basis. If God was not Holy and if He was a liar, the things He created could have been seen disobeying Him.

God gave us principles and truths to live by. God's truth and principles are the ones that govern us as we are part of His creation. A principle is a principle no matter it is accepted or not. Whether a principle is accepted or not as long as the owner of the principle is Elohim, it will continue affecting our lives knowingly or unknowingly.

For example, with the principle of gravity, all the bodies on earth shall forever continue to be attracted by the surface of the earth. If you try to jump, in a few seconds you will find yourself back on the earth's surface. All the bodies under the sun are being forced to remain on the surface of the earth and this is due to the principle of gravitational force.

This principle affects all beings one way or the other. It does not matter you believe in it or not. Being ignorant of certain things does not make them non-existent or ineffective. You can hide away from the sun, but that does not mean it is no longer existing. Some people somewhere might be enjoying its sunshine at the same time you are hiding.

The truth about the prophetic and prophecy is a reality to live by. Man is a by-product of prophecy so he must be sustained by prophecy! And God said "Let us create man in our image, after our likeness and let him have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creeping things that creepeth upon the earth (Genesis 1 v 26).

God was prophesying about the existence of man before he was created so prophecy is very good and healthy for a man. God in his infinite wisdom, gave us a prophecy and a mandate to dominate all other things except of dominating other humans. Nobody was given that assignment. Prophecy is not a tool which God uses to frighten or threaten people with, prophecy is there to sustain and maintain God's inheritance on earth.

It will be wrong for people to think that prophecy is used to take away people's money, wives etc. Prophecy is the way of God communicating with us. You can choose to kill and wipe away all the prophets, but the prophetic will affect you and find you one way or the other because it is God's principle of managing the affairs of his planet earth.

Attacking the prophetic is thus hitting the mouth of God. It's not the battle between human beings, but the battle between gods. When and where did we hear the clay pot telling the potter how it should be made? How come today the mortal is trying to challenge the immortal? Can any man instruct God? Who can volunteer to advise God on how He should run the affairs of His house?

The church today need to awaken itself to the truth that if it chose to worship God in Spirit and in truth, then it should also go by God's principles. Principles of God need to be observed. We cannot question the sovereignty of God, but we can only support what the Lord said should be supported.

Debating on the principles of God is a waste of time. Paul, before he was converted, did all he can to stop the movements of God. All Paul was seeing was a group of people worshipping God, little did he know that in the midst of these people there was "ancient of days". It must be current news in the body of Christ today to know that God is blessing His house with so many gifts in these days.

In your world of imagination, just try to think of the world without the existence of the church of Jesus Christ, where would we be? We have hope today because Christ is the hope of glory. We have the truth today in this world because Christ is the way, the truth and life.

Where you see life today, all it means is Jesus is in that place. Prophets give life. They order things in the spirit realm for our benefit. Sometimes it is good to ask for knowledge regarding a principle than trying to fight it without knowledge.

You don't check and find out whether your stove is on or off by placing your hands on the plates. If you are wise you must study it before you operate it. By the reason of this article may I speak to the body of Christ that its time that we should regard the principles of the Kingdom of God.

It's time to observe and respect the Word of God by respecting its manifestation! In as much as we desire to have only the genuine things and products, fake things shall always be found to prove and test the authenticity of the genuine ones. Ngatiregedzei kurasa mvura pamwe chete nemwana.

Zimbabwe, we are blessed to have peace loving and peace creating leaders. May we continue to pray for them and our nation. Alongside our father in the Lord, Prophet Makandiwa, may we as well continue to pray for the success of this rain season.
