THE REIGN OF THE
LORD IN ZION – The News of Life. Obadiah 21
Table, Watch in the Watchtower, Eat, Drink ...
This is a monthly Christian
Newsletter and hereby state the object of its publication: That we are living in
the last days — the end of the
Gospel age; as well as the dawning of the long prayed for Kingdom of Christ in
power; are facts not only discernible by the close Student of the word, led by
the Spirit; but the outward signs recognizable by the world, bear the same
testimony: And we are desirous that the “household of Faith” be fully awake. Not
only help awaken but to assist them to “put on the whole Armor of God that they
may be able to stand in this evil day”. And beside all this, that giving all
diligence, they add to their Faith, Virtue, and to virtue, Knowledge,
Self-control, Patience, Godliness, brotherly Kindness, and Love; whom trust in
the merit of Christ’s Sacrifice for the world. Luke 21:36; Matt. 6:10; Eph.6:13;
2 Peter 1:4-11

with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the
unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
1 Cor. 5:7-8
In harmony with our text, we propose to
compare the religion of Jesus with all other religions. In the beginning, we
state with the Apostle, "I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ." Whatever may
be said of other gospels, we believe, as Christians, that in the Christian
religion we have that of which no man need be ashamed. There may perhaps be
certain features and forms of certain creeds of which we might be ashamed—that
do not come up to our highest ideals. But the Christian religion, as presented
in the Word of God, should be the Standard of Christendom; and of that we are
not ashamed. It will compare with all other religions in the world, and come off
victorious, in every sense of the word. All of these various religions seem to
recognize that man is in an imperfect, unsatisfactory, sinful condition;
therefore, each of these religions seeks to present certain tenets, or
teachings, that will help man up out of his imperfect condition, back into
harmony with his God.
A COMPARISON OF RELIGIONS
If we consider the teachings of the Mohammedans, we find that
they have certain qualities which are very advantageous, and other qualities
which we could not so highly commend. Their endeavor is not to do injury, but to
make man better. Their theory is that mankind is fallen and needs lifting up out
of their fallen condition. The same may be said of the teachings of the Brahmin,
the Confucianist and the Buddhist. They are all more or less presentations of
what are supposed to be cures for man's fallen condition, cures for his
unsatisfactory attitude. Some of these religions pronounce one kind of a penalty
for those who will not accept them, and others declare other kinds. Some offer
one kind of reward for those who accept and follow their teachings, while others
offer other kinds of rewards. But all agree that man needs to be elevated and
lifted up out of his fallen condition, which is sinful and unsatisfactory. There
seems to be in every man, naturally, without any education on the subject,
something which tells him that he is not perfect; that he is not in full accord
with his own conscience, not in accord with his own highest ideals of the Divine
All religions, therefore, recognize this principle of sin and
propose remedies therefore. We see the evidence of this as manifested in their
disciples everywhere. Many seek to crucify the flesh in one form or another—some
by flagellations, some by restraints upon the various liberties of life, some by
holding their hands in the air for days, seeking to become holy and thus appease
their god. But none of these things, in the light of the Gospel of Christ, seem
to be the highest and noblest ideals. Doubtless all have done some good and
uplifted some men out of the degradation in which they were. Mankind might have
been worse off if it had not been for these religions. But now, if we compare
these with the religion of Jesus Christ, we believe everything is to be said in
favor of the religion of Christ.
God's proposition to the Jews was, "Do these things and ye shall
live," have everlasting life. That was the Covenant made by God with them at
Mount Sinai, at the hands of Moses. They thought at first that they would surely
be lifted up out of sin, because God had given them a Law, and by keeping it
they would be perfect and be brought into harmony with God. In this they were
mistaken, for, as they found out, as the centuries passed, none of them were
able to keep the Law, because it is the measure of a perfect man's ability; and
none of them could measure up to the perfect man. Israel found, therefore, as
the Apostle states it, that "by the deeds of the Law shall no flesh be justified
in God's sight." And they found also that the Law, instead of perfecting,
justifying them, and giving them eternal life, brought to them a greater
realization of sin than they ever had before. And this was the real blessing of
the Law Covenant—it showed them their sinful condition and their inability to
lift themselves out of it. But the Jews do not recognize that great fact today,
for if they did they would be crying to God for mercy instead of hoping to keep
the Law and thus justifying themselves
The same thing might be said to be true of all the heathen
religions. All offer help by which mankind may make themselves perfect, but none
are able to make themselves perfect, and they all realize that they are sinners
and imperfect to the last degree. There is, therefore, nothing that is logical
in any of these religions, because they all start out to claim that a man ought
to be perfect, ought to be holy, and are agreed that he is not. As before called
attention to this agrees with the words of God with respect to Israel, "By the
deeds of the Law shall no flesh be justified in His sight." God's Word agrees
with all of these—that man is a sinner, that he cannot do the things that he
would, that his ideals are to be and are higher than his capacity and ability.
And so St. Paul declares, "We cannot do the things which we would."
ALL THE RACE SOLD UNDER SIN
Christianity answers that the reason is that we are fallen
creatures, sold under sin. Who sold us, when and where? The Bible answers that
"By one man's disobedience sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so
death passed upon all men." Death has passed upon the entire race and thus
impoverished it mentally, morally and physically, so that now, because of the
fall, we cannot do the things which we would like to do
The Bible tells us that originally Adam was not in our condition,
but was perfect and could keep the Divine Law perfectly, but that "we are sold
under sin." And so the Prophet David expresses the same thought, "Behold, I was
shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me"—Psalm 51:5. So we
behold that we are a race of sinners, imperfect mentally, morally and
physically, and therefore unable to keep the Divine standard or Law. What, then,
does Christianity offer us that no other religion offers us? Christianity offers
us a Savior, and no other religion offers a Savior.
Christianity recognizes that the condition came about by the
disobedience of one man, Adam, and it sets forth Jesus as the One who redeems
man from that death sentence that came upon our first parents: "As by a man came
death, by a man comes also the resurrection of the dead"; "For as all in Adam
die, even so all in Christ shall be made alive," writes St. Paul—"every man in
his own order."
Cor. 15:21-23. Here, then, Christianity has a logical superiority, in that it
provides for a satisfaction of Divine Justice.
All religions say that it is Divine Justice that is opposed to
sin, but Christianity offers a satisfaction for Divine Justice. "Christ died for
our sins"; "He gave Himself a Ransom for all"; "He is the propitiation
[satisfaction] for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the
whole world," writes the Apostle. So, then, Christianity is not only more
logical, but is more just—it recognizes Divine Justice, 1 Cor. 15:3; 1 Tim.
2:3-6; 1 John 2:2.
We must recognize that if God condemned the world understandingly
and truly, as the Great Judge of mankind, there must be some satisfaction of
Justice ere the Chief Justice of the Universe could set aside the penalty and
release the culprit. Man has sinned and the great Chief Justice has passed the
sentence, and there is no way to revoke that sentence, except by meeting it. And
so Christianity sets forth that our Lord Jesus came into the world to meet the
penalty, and that He, "by the grace of God, tasted death for every man."
Christianity has another superiority over all other religions,
and it is this: it recognizes a love and compassion upon the part of God that no
other religion recognizes. All these religions do recognize a God, and we claim
it makes very little difference whether they call Him Allah, or Jehovah, or some
other name. They recognize, we believe, the same, one God, but they do not
recognize His real traits of character. They perceive His Justice, and their own
transgressions of Divine Justice, but they do not see the merciful provision
that God has made. Their God is represented by the Chinese idol, which pictures
to them the character of God. We remember a Chinese banner we once saw. The
figure on this banner represented a very demon-like character, and lightning was
represented as flashing from his closed fist. He was a god to be feared, one who
would take vengeance upon them.
THE GOD OF THE BIBLE IS THE GOD OF ALL GRACE
The God of the Bible, however, while just, is not a vengeful God,
not unkind; but, on the contrary, He is the God of All Grace, the Father of
Mercies, from whom cometh every good and perfect gift (2 Cor. 1:3). And the
great Gift that He gave is the greatest of all gifts, the Gift of His Son, for
man's sin, that thus He might offer a satisfaction to His own Justice. Nor was
this arbitrarily at the expense of, or contrary to the will of the Redeemer;
because the Scriptures make clear that it was by virtue of the "prize" set
before our Lord; as we read, "For the joy that was set before Him, He endured
the cross, despising the shame."
This love of God is not content with merely the provision of the
Savior, and the arrangement that if anybody shall hear and believe he shall be
blessed; but this love of God proposes to go still further, namely, that He who
thus redeems the race shall become the King of earth; and His scepter, His rule,
shall be "from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth"–
Psalm 72:8, until "every knee shall bow and every tongue confess" to the glory
of God; and "the knowledge of the Lord shall fill the whole earth as the waters
cover the great deep." Thus every creature shall come to know that there is a
God, and that the way He proposes to be just and merciful is through His Son,
who is to be the great Deliverer of the race.
14:11; Isa. 11:9.
In what way will this great Deliverer come? This is a part of the
Gospel, a part of the "good tidings." It will be through His great Kingdom,
which He will set up in His own due time. His Kingdom will not be merely for the
rich or powerful, but for the poor also: "He shall lift up the poor from the
dunghill," is a part of the prophecy. His power and influence will be the great
moving principle that will level the whole world of mankind. As the Scriptures
declare, all men are on a common level before God, for all have sinned and come
short of the glory of God, and all are recipients of Divine mercy. This is the
Kingdom of Christ—known as the Kingdom of God on earth, of which we earnestly
pray “Your Kingdom come...”
Math. 6:10; Rev. 20:6; 5:9-10; Psalm 72:8; Isaiah 11:6-11.
The blessing of the Lord will be that all may come back; and when
thus brought back to all that was lost in Adam and redeemed by Christ, they will
be able to keep the Divine Law perfectly, and will therefore to all eternity be
in covenant-relationship with God. For those who refuse to enjoy that blessing
prepared for them, the Scriptures clearly declare that God has provided the
Second Death—not a place of torment—"The soul that sinneth it shall die"; "The
wages of sin is death."
Acts 3:19-21; Ezekiel 18:4; Rom. 6:23.
"THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD"
"But," someone may say, "what about the Church? You have been
speaking about the world and what Jesus will do for it; what about the Church?"
Those of us who have experienced this Salvation know that as a power it has not
lifted us physically to perfection, but it has a power that has come into our
hearts, into our minds, through faith, transforming, renewing us — our minds,
our wills. The Lord's true people were once aliens, strangers and foreigners to
the Lord, but by a knowledge of the Savior have become transformed in their
lives, so that now they are seeking to walk, not after the flesh, but after the
spirit, the spirit or mind of God, the Divine will.
Here we see the difference between the Jew under his Covenant of
Law and the Christian under the higher Covenant that the Lord has made at the
present time. The Apostle said that the Jew could not do the things that he
would; but he declares equally strongly that "the righteousness of the Law is
fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." — Rom.
8:4. How is this possible? Are we better than the Jews? Are we of less fallen
nature than the Jews, or made perfect? Nay, verily. The Apostle explains that
for the class called out during this Gospel Age there is a special arrangement
in operation, and God deals with these according to their minds, their wills,
their intentions, so that under this Covenant of Grace we are counted as fully
keeping the Divine Law — the righteousness, the full meaning of the Law, is
fulfilled in us who are walking not after the flesh but after the spirit — not
up to the spirit, but after the spirit.
But how could we be fully justified if not able to walk up to the
spirit? The answer is that the blood cleanses us and commutes our sins; Christ
imputes His perfection and righteousness to us, so that our best endeavors are
accepted in Jehovah's sight as perfect, for we are justified, not according to
the flesh, but according to the spirit.
Another way in which the Gospel of Christ is superior to all
others is that this Gospel is world-wide. No other Gospel of which we have
knowledge is world-wide. The Gospel of the Son of God is that "Jesus Christ, by
the grace of God, tasted death for every man," rich and poor, Jew and Gentile,
every nation and people and kindred and tongue. "There's a wideness in God's
mercy like the wideness of the sea." We know of no other religion that is so
unbiased, that recognizes no national lines, that has the thought that we are
one race, which sprang from one man, condemned through one man, and redeemed
through the Man Christ Jesus, and that all are to have a blessing — no other
religion under the sun!
1 Cor. 15:21-22.
The religion of Christ, of which we are not ashamed, is best in
this, that it is the most God-like religion, because of its breadth, because of
its justice, because of its impartiality, because of its love, its goodness and
merciful qualities. It shows forth, as does no other religion, the Justice,
Wisdom, Love and Power of Jehovah, our God. To Him be glory and honor and
THE ESTABLISHMENT OF CHRIST'S KINGDOM.
“I saw in the night-visions, and,
behold, there came with the clouds of heaven one like unto a son of man, and
he came even to the ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a Kingdom, that all the
peoples, nations, and languages should serve him: his dominion is an
everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his Kingdom that which
shall not be destroyed”
Yes here on earth, and “He shall have dominion also
from sea to sea, And from the River unto the ends of the earth”
“Blessed and holy is he that hath
part in the first resurrection: over these the second death hath no power;
but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a
– Rev. 20:6.
Where is the Reign for a 1000 years?
Yes here on earth; “And they sing a new song, saying, Worthy art
thou to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou was slain, and
didst purchase unto God with thy blood men of every tribe, and tongue, and
people, and nation, and madest them to be unto our God a Kingdom and priests;
and they reign upon earth” – Rev 5:9-10.
And the Son of Man said—
“The Kingdom of God is at hand” and earnestly pray for the establishment of this
Kingdom on earth
“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so on earth” – Math.6:10.
That in this Kingdom, God's Will
“will be done on earth.”
Yes, in the blessed Kingdom of Christ shall be:
Messiah (Christ) shall establish peace in the whole
“He will judge between many peoples, and will decide concerning
strong nations afar off: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and
their spears into pruning-hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more” – Micah 4:3; and
“And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall
lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their
young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child
shall put his hand on the adder’s den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my
holy mountain (Kingdom); for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of
Jehovah, as the waters cover the sea” – Isaiah 11:6-10.
This is a sure Kingdom on EARTH because the lions, cows,
leopards, wolf, asp, snakes have never been promised to go to heaven in the
whole Bible!!! Again the lions will eat straw/grass!
Messiah shall resurrect all people here on the
“Thy dead shall live; my dead bodies shall arise. Awake and sing,
ye that dwell in the dust; ..., and the earth shall cast out the dead” – Isaiah
The resurrected people shall rejoice in the Kingdom
of Messiah, their King:
There will be no hospitals “And the inhabitant shall not say, I
am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity”
– Isaiah 33:24.
Human defects healed
“Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be
unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb
shall sing; for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the
– Isaiah 35:5-6.
No famine in his Kingdom “The wilderness and the dry land shall
be glad; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom
abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing”
– Isaiah 35:1-2.
No rent of houses “And they shall build houses, and inhabit
them;...They shall not build, and another inhabit”
All the ends of the world will see his salvation:
“ And it shall come to pass in that day,
that the Lord will set his hand again the second time
to recover the remnant of his people,
that shall remain, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros,
and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath,
and from the islands of the sea”
Isaiah 11:11, compare Acts 15:14-17.

“Kubanga enjiri tekwaasa nsonyi: Kubanga ge maanyi ga Katonda
olw'okulokola eri buli akkiriza, okusookera ku Muyudaaya era n'eri Omuyonaani”
Tusooka okutunuulira engyigiriza ezenjawulo nga zonna zitakabana
okusinza n'okumanya Katonda omu ow'amazima. Zonna zigezaako okutumbura omuntu
okudda mu mbeera enungi emanyi Katonda. Kale zonna wamu zikiraga nti omuntu
yetaaga kuyambibwa kuba mwonoonyi. Abasilaamu balina bye bakutirwa okusobola
okuvuunuka ekibi, nga ebimu birungi naye ebirara bikyaamu. Bwekityo nengigiriza
endala zibutabuta nga ez'ababundi ebuyindi. Bwe tutunuulira engyigiriza ya Yesu
oba ey'ekristaayo, tulabawo enjawulo nnene nnyo. Engyigiriza esukkuluma ku ndala
nga oggyeeko eya Yesu, ye y'Abayudaaya.
Katonda ya kolagana n'Abayudaaya ng'abawa amateeka ku lusozi
sinai, n'akola endagaano nabo — era nabasuubiza nti anakwaata amateekage
anabeera mulamu. Baafuna essuubi mu mateeka naye nga tebasobola kutuukiriza
mateeka kuba amateeka gakwatibwa muntu atuukiridde. Kuba abantu bonna bazaalibwa
mu kibi (Zabbuli 51:5), tebasobola ku tuukiriza mateeka ga
Katonda. Amateeka gaabayamba okumanya obubi era nga tebasobola kugatuukiriza.
Kale ng'Abayudaaya tebasobola kutuukiriza mateeka, balikaabiride Mukama okufuna
ekisa kye. Kino kituufu n'eri enzikiriza endala, nga zigezaako okuva mu bubi
naye nga tebasobola kwejjamu. Kino kyeraga lwatu nti abatakkiriza kisa kya
Katonda ekiri mu Yesu Kristo, bategana buteganyi.
ABANTU BONNA BAATUNDIBWA MU KIBI
Tulaba nga Baibuli nengyiriza ya Yesu ekiraga bulungi nti abantu
bonna bayonoona era bazaalibwa mu kibi (Zabuli 51:5). Nti, “Olw'ebyo, nga ku
bw'omuntu omu ekibi bwe kyayingira mu nsi, okufa ne kuyingira olw'ekibi,
bwekityo okufa ne kubuna ku bantu bonna, kubanga bonna bayonoona” – Abarumi
5:12. Omuntu omubereberye Adamu teyali bwatyo, naye yali atuukiridde era nga
asobola okukwaata amateeka ga Katonda. Naye bwe yayonoona, olwo embeera
nesajjuka, ekibi ne kibuna ku bonna! Kale wano enzikiriza y'eki kristaayo/ eya
Kristo weweera essuubi so nga endala zonna tezirina ssuubi lya kununulibwa.
Bwekityo, enzikiriza y'eki kristaayo eraga lwatu nti ekibi
kyaggya olw'omuntu omu eyayonoona, Adamu, era newa essuubi ery'okununulibwa
omuntu omu ye Yesu: “Kubanga okufa bwe kwabaawo ku bw'omunt, era n'okuzuukira
kw'abafu kwabaawo ku bwa muntu. Kuba bonna nga bwe baafiira mu Adamu, era bwe
batyo mu Kristo bonna mwe balifuukira abalamu” – 1 Abakkolinso 15:21-22.
Tukiraba burungi nti enzikiriza ya kristo ewa enteekateeka ya
Katonda ennung'amu, ey'amazima wamu n'essuubi, so nga enzikiriza endala
zitamwattamwa n'ebigambo. Wano tulaba nti omuntu omu ya yonoona era ne tulaba
nti omuntu omu y'anunula bonna, nti Yesu yafiirira era n'asasulira ekibi
ky'Adamu — “... N'oyo gwe mutango olw'ebibi byaffe; so si lwa bibi byaffe fekka,
era naye n'olw'ensi zonna” – 1 Yokaana 2:1-2.
KATONDA WO MU BAIBULI WA KISA
ERA AJJUDDE OKUSAASIRA
Tulaba ekisa kya Katonda eky'ekitalo, nga Baibuli bw'etegeeza nti
“Yeebazibwe Katonda era Kitaawe wa Mukama waffe Yesu Kristo, Kitaffe
ow'okusaasira era Katonda ow'okusanyusa kwonna” – 1 Abokkolinso 1:3. Tulaba
okwaagalakwe okw'ekitalo bwe yawaayo omwaanawe okuba “omutango gw'abantu” — Yesu
okufa asobole okununula abantu okuva emagombe, ng'asasulira ekibi kya Adamu (1
Tim. 2:3-6). So nga ne Yesu teyakakibwa kufa, wabula yewaayo okusasulira
obw'enkanya bwa Katonda era okufiirira abantu, olwo abantu bonna babe balamu ku
lulwe (1 Abakkolinso 15:21-23). Tulaba ekisa kya Katonda tekikoma kununula bantu
kwokka (Kosea 14:13) wabula nti ateekateeka Obwakabaka era
obunafugibwa ey'abafiirira nga Kabaka wano ku nsi, ye Yesu Kristo (Danyeri
7:13-14; Zabbuli 72:8). Tukiraba nti mu Obwakabaka buno abantu bonna bakuwebwa
omukisa okumanya Katonda n'Amazima n'okwetwaalira obulokozi –
Isaaya 11:11; Zabbuli 98:3; Ebikk.15:14-17.
EKKANISA YA KATONDA:
Tulaba nga ebitonde byonna ku nsi bibonaboona, bisinda olw'ekibi,
nga birindirila okw'olesebwa kw'abaana ba Katonda –
Abaruumi 8:19-22. Tulaba nga ekkanisa ya Katonda tefuna butuukirivu lwa kukwaata
mateeka, wabula nga ekisa kya Katonda bw'ekyeraga mu bulokozi bwaffe
obw'Ekkanisa – Abaruumi 8:1-4; “Kale kaakano tebaliiko musango abali mu Kristo
Yesu, ... Obutuukirivu bw'amateeka bulyoke butuukirizibwe mu ffe, abatatambula
kugoberera mubiri, wabula omwoyo” Tukiraba nti tetutuukiridde mu mubiri, naye
Katonda ow'ekisa, yatuteekerateekera enkola eyokutulongoosa – nga tutukuzibwa
n'omusaayi gwa Yesu, era gutubeera olw'ekibi n'obunafu bwaffe eri obw'enkanya
bwa Katonda, bwe twegayiirira Katonda, mu Kristo Yesu!
Naye abatukuvu b'Oyo Ali waggulu ennyo baliweebwa Obwakabaka
emirembe n'emirembe, era n'okutuusa emirembe gyonna –
“N'Obwakabaka n'okufuga n'obukulu obw'obwakabaka obuli wansi
w'eggulu lyonna, abantu ab'atukuvu b'Oyo Ali waggulu ennyo balibiweebwa:
Obwakabaka bwe bwe bwakabaka obutaligwaawo, n'amatwale gonna galimuweereza
galimuwulira (Kristo) – Danyeri 7:27; Luke 22:29.
OBWAKABAKA BWA KRISTO
Obwakabaka bwa Kristo wano ku nsi --”Era anaafuganga okuva ku
nnyanja okutuuka ku nnyanja, Era okuva ku Mugga okutuuka ku nkomerero z'ensi” (Zabbuli
“Aweereddwa omukisa, era ye mutukuvu alina omugabo mu kuzuukira
okw'olubereberye: okufa okw'okubiri tekulina buyinza ku bo, naye banabeeranga
bakabona ba Katonda era ba Kristo, era banaafugiranga wamu naye emyaka lukumi”
Nga bafuga wa? Okub.5:9-10 adamu
-- “ ... N'obafuula eri Katonda waffe obwakabaka era bakabona; era bafuga ku nsi”
Mukama waffe Yesu kwe kukuutira abagoberezibe okukolerera
n'okusabira ennyo Obwakabaka buno, obwakabaka bwa Katonda ku nsi nti:
“Obwakabaka Bwo bujje, Byoyagala bikolebwe mu nsi, nga bwe bikolebwa mu Ggulu” –
Ye, mu Bwakabaka bwa Kristo obw'omukisa;
Kristo (Masiya) wa kuleeta emirembe mu nsi:
“Naye alisalira omusango amawanga mangi, era alinenya amawanga
agamaanyi agali ewala; era baliweesa ebitala byabwe (eby'okulwanyisa) okuba
enkumbi n'amafumu gaabwe okuba ebiwabyo; eggwanga teririyimusa ekitala ku

“N'omusege gunasulanga wamu n'omwaana gw'endiga, n'engo

Kino kyongera okakasa Obwakabaka bwa Kristo wano ku nsi; kuba

“Abafu bo baliba balamu; ... Muzuukuke muyimbe mwe ababeera mu

DESIRING GOD’S GREAT BLESSING!
Desiring to obtain God’s blessing but indifferent in doing His will results in
failure. Serving and improving the life conditions of your fellow men towards
God, is one source of God’s blessing. Therefore, desiring to spread God’s
Message of life but thinking you are too busy with work of whatever sort, poor
to give financial support as you may not have enough for food, or you are not
talented to speak, or feeling bodily imperfection that a person may ask you what
you can not explain; yes in whatever form of constraint: We advise you to
consider the many and varied opportunities the LORD of heaven has placed before
you to serve your fellow men and women; Example, obtain copies of this monthly
Newsletter — look at People interested in God’s word around you; at work place,
home, neighbors, at your church, sending a copy to mother, father, friends &
relatives in different places of the Country. Those who could promote this work
in other right way, the opportunity stands. Yes, how refreshing and motivating
you may contribute to changing Peoples lives, and yourself be God’s righteous
Servant in the belief of Christ and the TRUTH.
GROWING IN FAITH
Growth in faith is
a desired state of Christian for desired fruitage of Christ likeness; But this
must be in line with the will of God as expressed in 1 Thess. 5:21 KJV — “Prove
all things; hold fast that which is good.” In line with this exhortation we
advise all who are earnest students of Scriptures and our Newsletter, to prove
all our studies with the only standard given by God (Isaiah 34:16) and please
communicate to us! It is also, our privilege to share the message of God’s love
with others; hence we advise those who received the first publications to share
them with God’s People.
