Hate sin and not the sinner

By Tafadzwa Hove

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

Christ didn’t come to condemn sinners, but to save them. This means He loves them. We should also love them.. as Christ has loved us too.

Many of us are trapped into the habit of judging and hating others whereas we ourselves are sinners too. We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. No one is perfect.

So instead of hating the sinners let us all pray for God to give them the grace to quit sin.We should hate the act and not the sinner for we are not fighting against flesh and blood but against principalities and demons of all ranks and authority . Yes… Because he forgives everybody. No sin is too great or too small to be forgiven.

There’s need to talk salvation to sinners, not condemnation. Hate sin because a sinner can change. When you judge a sinner, you are chasing him or her away from repenting. Judge not, so you will not be judged( Matthew 7:1) There would be no opportunity for them to change when you judge them. Sinners can also be saved .

“I saw TB Joshua in heaven”, American pastor

By Tafadzwa Hove

An American pastor, Daphne Patoir released a video on YouTube which claims that she saw TB Joshua (Nigerian popular prophet and preacher) in heaven as she was in a vision.It was after accusing TB Joshua that he uses demonic powers to perform miracles. Below is how her vision unfolds:

“On Tuesday January 2nd, 2018, I was crying out to God because I wanted to be a follower of Jesus… to serve Him with my whole heart,” she said.

“Suddenly, it was as if my body was a barrel and I had fallen to the bottom of the barrel and Jesus replaced me, in my body. I was conscious that my body was sitting in the chair, in our room. We were flying at the speed of lightning,” Patoir wrote.

“I lost control of my body. I remembered crying and telling Jesus that I was a simple girl from a small town and that the mystery was too much for me,” she clearly described, explaining how the experience significantly strengthened her faith.

“At lightning speed, Jesus took me into a room passed the second Heaven. As we entered, I saw three gift boxes. One had my name on it, the second one was given to a pastor I know and respect and the third one was given to T.B. Joshua. I saw T.B. Joshua in Heaven receiving a huge gift box,” she said.

TB Joshua

Pastor Daphne said Jesus told her to ‘fear not’ when she pleaded that she wished to return to her body. “I know this might sound crazy but my body wouldn’t allow me access,” she explained when she tried to return to her body during the vision.

Thereafter, the minister remembered how after she “saw everything He wanted to show me, my body allowed me in”.

“I fell on my knees and I wept. Hours later, I was still trembling. I felt as if electricity was flowing through my body. While this was happening, my husband was sleeping in the bed. He told me that he heard me making unusual sounds and when he tried to get up to wake me, the power of the Holy Spirit pinned him to the bed.”

“I saw T.B. Joshua in the presence of God! I fear God; I wouldn’t lie,” she concluded.

Do not worry

By Tafadzwa Hove

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what will you eat or drink, and your body, what will you wear? Is life not more important than food and the body more important than clothes?

Look at the birds of the air, they never sow or reap or gather out barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:25-26

Worry itself cannot solve any problems that you encounter in your life journey, rather it worsens them. Worrying can make you sick, worrying can kill you, worrying can hinder God’s answers to your prayers etc.

You need to ask God to give you faith, strength, endurance and courage to fight off the worry in our hearts. He himself says in His word, if you would pray to Him without any doubt He will see to it that your desires are granted. This means that worry/doubt can act as a barrier between you and God. Your prayers may not reach God if you can pray in worry, because that would be implying that you doubt your God;you have two minds. But if you have absolute trust in God without doubting Him;you will have your heart ‘s desires in Jesus’ name.

He knows your needs before you can even render your requests to Him. Just imagine the kind of a loving Father He is to us.

The only thing you can do is to cast your anxieties unto Him, because He cares for you. At His own time He will make everything right.

Do Not Fear

By Tafadzwa Hove

The Lord is my light and my salvation, who shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? Psalms 27:1

There is no reason to fear when you know who is with you, on your side fighting for you, protecting you, comforting you and strengthening you. The one who is on your side supporting you is greater than he who is in the world.The Holy Spirit-He conquered all our fears..

Fear itself is even more deceptive than Satan himself. Fear causes us to get off track and lose focus. Fear causes us to be afraid to challenge whatever situation that comes our way. Fear makes us afraid of the future, career failure, sickness.

Many have become slaves to fear while deep down in their hearts they dream for a miracle. Fear is Satan’s most destructive tool that has robbed many of their victorious lives in Christ Jesus.

The hospital beds, graveyards and prisons are full of people who have failed to challenge and resist fear. God has promised us many miracles and blessings but this has remained a dream to many people because they failed to conquer fear.

What are you afraid of? Remember you have the Holy Spirit your comforter who has conquered and overcome fear for you. Always put in mind that the Holy Spirit can completely destroy all your fears in Jesus ‘name.

Chamisa criticised for blocking people on Twitter

By Tafadzwa Hove

People from different spheres of Zimbabwe have criticised opposition leader for Movement for Democratic Change, Nelson Chamisa for blocking them on Twitter. Some have said that, the opposition leader is, ‘allergic’, to discerning voices who always tell him the truth.

One Twitter user said, “Was blocked long time ago this guy doesn’t accept criticism at all maybe I was telling him the truth.. Coz the truth hurts..”.

The Zimbabwean media mogul Trevor Ncube backed the above mentioned Twitter User and said, “If he can block you as leader of the opposition for criticizing him l shudder to think what he will do to you when you make that fatal mistake” … https://t.co/m0vWbKhheM

*Another user also laughed in the comments section and said, “I was also blocked by the man NC, kkkk.”

Here are the rest of comments of the people who condemned Chamisa for his behavior :

*”I asked him what he was doing to make lives of 🇿🇼 citizens better since what he was only tweeting about were problems with no solutions, so I got lots of likes for that question next day I was blocked…”

*”Ask for forgiveness or else zvogara zvakadaro.
And just make sure he will not be president of Zim 🤣🤣🤣for now is not in charge of Zim. Someone is, who was voted by the majority of zim people.”

*”He is a clown.”

*”Someone who’s not taking advice or listening to his advisers will probably not listen to anyone when they get in power. That situation isn’t going to change.”

*”Anyone who blocks people is a coward… In fact, a fool. Personally l will never support blocking anyone… For what reason? People like Chamisa are Dictators, they can’t take criticism or being opposed… That’s cowardice.”

However some of the Twitter users seemed to be in support of Chamisa saying it was his right since he is a human who has got feelings too.

Here are the pro-Chamisa comments below :

*”You should have asked ED that qn … NC is not the president of this country ask mukoma wako ED.”

*”He has every right to do so, the same way you always boast of blocking people who don’t agree with you. ”

*”Everyone one reserves the right to block anyone if they feel so. It’s social media after all. We are more concerned with those that block our progress as a nation by reducing our disposable income…That’s the mistake we are living with at the moment.”

*”Trevor walk the talk https://t.co/XR8FPc7 you dont have the guts to blame chamisa for blocking people you blocked a lot than him.”

The importance of reading the word of God

By Tafadzwa Hove

You must give your quality time, strength and love to the word of God. The answer to your prayer that you need is found in the word of God. That healing, deliverance, breakthrough is found in the word!

The word of God has a purifying power, it has converting power. When you take the word to heart and truly make it part of you, it will be by its very nature change you.

The word of God is essential because it keeps one from sin and error.* It rejoices the heart.

* It is food for our soul and a guide for our feet.

* It is light to our path.

You may not understand it at first when you read it. Its not like any other book. It is not like reading literature, newspapers, fashion magazines etc, and the difference between the above mentioned is inspired by the language of men and the Word of God is inspired by the Spirit of God.

Read the word slowly, attentively and repeatedly. Let your heart crave for it. And then, there’s also need to meditate on the word day and night. Meditating on the word is important because it brings revelation.

Scriptural reading and prayer should always go together. One is not complete without the other. Scriptural prayer releases the power of God. Prayer is not effective if it is not based on the word of God. When the devil tried to tempt Jesus, Jesus responded by quoting the scriptures and was victorious.

When you read the Bible, you are hearing God speak to you. You are meeting Him face to face. So fill your prayers with scriptures!
