We're the vessels of His Love to pour out His Love to others. It's all the Lord, it's all His Love, but He needs someone to work through. We're channels & tools in His hand!"Open your mouth," the Bible says, "and He will fill it." (Psa.81:10) But where does He fill it from? He fills it from your heart. If you have filled your heart beforehand, if you're full of the Spirit, if you're full of His Love, His Spirit & knowledge of His Word, the message you want to get across to others, when you open your mouth He'll fill it, right out of your heart! It just rolls out by inspiration.God doesn't expect you to do it. All He expects you to do is yield to Him, then He will do it through you. When you turn on a water faucet, the faucet is not doing the work! It's the power from outside that causes the water to flow effortlessly through the faucet! The faucet is just the channel, just the hole, to let the water flow out! That's the secret!If you're full of the Spirit, full of prayer, full of the Lord, full of the Word, then you can just let it roll! Ask God to turn you on & it will flow! You'll be amazed, it will be beautiful!
God Bless you as you continue to bring your friends here.

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
In perhaps the most vicious attack, a man was "necklaced" in Reiger Park on the East Rand .Jody Kollapen, chairman of the Human Rights Commission, said such scenes were reminiscent of "the dark days of apartheid".The HRC will meet today to discuss the violence.One victim was a deaf mute who was attacked outside the Central Methodist Church in Johannesburg . Known only as "Tarro", the young man suffered a gash to his forehead at the hands of a mob.

Dear Sayuni visitors, I thank God for the Mailing Lists service He's has made for us all.As you might have noticed, I invited you through this blog to join yourself with this Service,free of service.
To those who have subscribed themselves, I have sent you the first email today,if you can't see it, check your "bulk/junk" folder and add the message email address to your contacts.
I have decided to share with other Sayuni visitors what is in the message. Welcome!
Message One: If you puff yourself up you'll get the wind knocked right out of you.
Proverbs 16:18 says, "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." This principle can be clearly seen in the life of King Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon, by examining Daniel chapter 4.King Nebuchadnezzar started out praising God and giving Him the credit: "It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that the Most High God has performed for me. How great are his signs, how mighty his wonders! His kingdom is an eternal kingdom; his dominion endures from generation to generation" (Daniel 4:2-3). Here, Nebuchadnezzar is humble.However, over the course of a year, something happened that caused the king to begin to take credit for his circumstances: "As the king was walking on the roof of the royal palace of Babylon, he said, 'Is not this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty?' " (Daniel 4:29-30, italics added). Nebuchadnezzar is no longer giving God credit. Instead, he is full of pride and is puffing himself up.However, as is always the case, "Pride goes before destruction." So, God punished Nebuchadnezzar by sending him out to live like a wild animal for seven years (See Daniel 4:31-33).Then, Daniel 4:34 records the king's response: "At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored." Interestingly, the king said that his pride caused him to lose his sanity and that now, as a result of being humbled by God, his sanity was restored. In order to humble him, God humiliated him. Indeed, a humiliating experience will almost always humble someone.The chapter concludes with Nebuchadnezzar's reflection: "Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble" (Daniel 4:37).
Message Two:Are you so busy working for God that you never spend any time with God?
It is easy to justify doing good works for God as a substitute for spending real, intimate, quality, personal time with God. For example, a youth pastor may spend many hours planning events for kids—preparing the music, setting up the games, arranging the transportation, and even preparing a brief message. However, none of that is a substitute for spending personal time with God—reading the Bible, praying, seeking God's guidance, worshiping, and just sitting in His presence.Unfortunately, many people are often so caught up in other activities that we use them as an excuse for not spending time with God. Instead, they need to make a firm decision to put God first in our lives. For example, King David, who certainly had many opportunities to fill his time with other activities, knew that spending time with God is an absolute necessity—a vital need. In Psalm 27:4, he said that God was the most important thing in his life: One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.Indeed, Jesus declared that if we seek God, he will take care of the rest of the things in our lives: "Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well" (Matthew 6:33). In your life, put God first, and he will take care of "all these things." Follow David's example: make God the "one thing" you need. That way, you won't be so busy working for God that you never spend any time with God.
God Bless you very much.Frank Lema.

According to Compass Direct News, "An Algerian Christian detained five days for carrying a Bible and personal Bible study books was handed a 300-Euro (US $460) fine and a one-year suspended prison sentence." Compass reported this conviction was the latest in numerous detentions and court cases against Algerian Christians.
"Since January, police and provincial officials have ordered the closure of up to half of the country's estimated 50 Protestant congregations," Compass Direct said. The 33-year-old Algerian Christian converted from Islam to Christianity eight years ago. On April 25, he was stopped at a police road block while riding in a shared taxi.
Compass Direct added, "Officials took the convert into custody upon finding a Bible and several religious study books in his luggage. Police appear to have previous knowledge of the Christian's connections. Officers refused to let the convert call friends to let them know of his detention, naming a church member in Tiaret whom they claimed he would contact."
Pray believers in Algeria will remain faithful despite persecution.
Ask God to protect and give courage to this Algerian Christian who is standing for Christ.

Senior pastor of megachurch The Potter's House in Dallas, Jakes took thousands of Christians "back to the Bible" during a three-day conference over the weekend, urging believers to realise that now is the time to re-commit to Jesus Christ.
"It is because of the state of this world - natural disasters, personal failures, a sagging economy, injustices, and more - that we need to get back to the Bible," said Jakes, who was dubbed one of the country's 25 most influential evangelicals by Time magazine in 2005. "We need to go back to relying on the real, proven Word of God to draw strength from it, and to use it as our guide for day-to-day living.”
Jakes and other speakers at the weekend event conveyed a message that "now is the time for believers to hang on to God because that is the only way to survival", according to Ann Fields, media relations specialist at The Potter's House.
The messages were delivered at a time when many Christians are abandoning their faith. David Sanford, author of If God Disappears: 9 Faith Wreckers and What to Do About Them, says believers have lost faith in the Bible, the church and Christian beliefs, and now millions of Americans are exiting the church.
Jakes called on believers to return to the Bible.
“For thousands of years, the Bible has proven itself relevant. It is rich in instruction in how to live the peaceful, productive and righteous life that God designed for us. Yet, at times, even Christians have swayed from its teachings. Even we have been distracted by the headlines of this world," he said.
"But it’s never too late to turn back to the only thing that doesn’t change, to the only thing that is dependable and fixed, and that is the Word of God."
Jakes launched the Back to the Bible conference in 1983 in Montgomery, West Virginia, with some 80 people. The annual event began before the highly popular MegaFest, "Woman Thou Are Loosed" and "ManPower" conferences were introduced. Back to the Bible is considered the flagship event that has helped to define Jakes and his ministry.
Accidental entrepreneur Bob Williamson, 61, is projecting his company, Horizon Software International, will hit $32 million in revenue this year.
Bob Williamson fled a broken home in Mississippi at age 17 to hitchhike around the country. He landed in Atlanta in 1970 at 24, homeless, broke, and addicted to heroin and methamphetamine. When he got a job there cleaning bricks for $15 a week, no one would have guessed that he would start a $26 million software company someday.
Successful businesses often spring from a combination of hard work and dumb luck, and Williamson credits both.
"I was either going to commit suicide, which several of my friends had done, or I was going turn my life around," says Williamson, now chairman and chief executive officer of Horizon Software International, a 180-employee maker of software for food service systems used in schools, hospitals, and other institutions.

Kwa sasa jambo hili ni kama askofu Kakobe ameliibua upya na kuleta changamoto kubwa miongoni mwa jamii ya waaminio.
Jambo la kujiuliza hapa ni je...jambo hili linajenga mwili wa Kristo au linabomoa..?
Kufanya ushuhudiaje sehemu kama Zanzibar inahitaji trik za hali ya juu.Wakati mwingine nililazimika kwenda kunywa urojo pale Forodhani na wakati mwingine nilienda kunywa shurba (juice ya tende) pale Mkunanzini ili niweze kupata walao dakika 5 za kuongea na ndugu zetu hawa maneno ya YESU KRISTO.

Einstein experts say the letter supports the argument that the physicist held complex, agnostic views on religion. He rejected organized faith but often spoke of a spiritual force at work in the universe.
Einstein's most famous legacy is the special theory of relativity, which makes the point that a large amount of energy could be released from a tiny amount of matter, as expressed in the equation EMC2 (energy equals mass times the speed of light squared).
The theory changed the face of physics, allowing scientists to make predictions about space and paving the way for nuclear power and the atomic bomb.

Medical Science Report says: When the mother of this child was pregnant, she had 2 fetuses inside her, but one of the fetus grew inside the other, this is why this girl was born with the other foetus inside her womb.
Is this really possible? Check out the Xray films and ultrasound of the baby!
Haya mambo yanatisha na kusikitisha kusikiwa lakini tufanyeje? Neno linasema, muyaonapo mambo kama hayo ambayo sio ya asili kabisa kwa binadamu, wale walio wateule wachangamke, maana saa ya kurudi kwa Bwana wao i karibu!!

98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888
Brilliant, isn't it?
And look at this symmetry:
1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321

111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321
Now, take a look at this...
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:
What Equals 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?
Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?
We have all been in situations where someone wants you to
GIVE OVER 100%.
How about ACHIEVING 101%?
What equals 100% in life?
Here's a little mathematical formula that might help
answer these questions:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K
8+1+18+4+23+ 15+18+11 = 98%
11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%
1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%
THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:
12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4 = 101%
Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:
While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will
get you there, It's the Love of God that will put you over the top!

Kama kuna somo adimu na kitu kigumu ambacho kimewachanganya walio-okoka na hata wasio-okoka ni pale mtu anapotajiwa habari za Roho Mtakatifu: Maswali mengi yameulizwa na yapo yaliyopata majibu ya moja kwa moja na yapo mengine mpaka kesho mtu hawezi kuelewa mpaka naye apitie experience hiyo ya Roho Mt.
- What is it?
- What does it do?
- What is it's purpose?
- How do you all "identify" it?
If I may respond to above queries I would say the Holy Spirit is not an "it" but a He. He is part of the Trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is our helper, encourager, comforter, and strengthens us and illuminates our mind with the truth in the Bible.
John 15:26 "But I will send you the Counselor, the Spirit of Truth. He will come to you from the Father and will tell all about Me"
John 16:13 " When the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. He will not be presenting His own ideas, He will be telling you what He has heard. He will tell you about the future. He will bring Me glory by revealing to you whatever He received from Me".Sasa maswali mengi yapo hapa:
- Nitatambuaje kwamba ninaye huyo Roho Mt?
- Nitamtambuaje mtu anayesema ana Roho Mt?
- Nitatofautishaje kati ya Roho Mt. na roho Nyehu au Mtakafujo kama wengine wamwitavyo?
- Wanaposema Roho alisema nami au na mtu kwa wengi ni mkangayiko, una uthibitisho gani?
Hebu tusaidiane hapa ndugu zangu na kuelimishana maana hizi ni zama za mwisho na maovu yameongezeka ikiwa ni pamoja na mafisadi wa kiroho!
Mchango wako wa mawazo ni muhimu sana!

Mwaka 1991 Bwana alinijalia kupandishwa cheo kazini (field supervisor) huko Rakai District km 150 toka makao makuu ya kampuni yetu – Entebe, Uganda. Tulikuwa na madereva wengi na kitu ambacho sikujua ni kwamba kati ya hao wapo wawili waliojihusisha sana na mambo ya uchawi! Hawa hawakupenda mtu yeyote aendeshe magari waliyokabidhiwa na wala kupandishwa cheo juu yao. Siku hiyo nilikuwa na ratiba ya kutembelea mojawapo ya vituo vyetu na nikaazimia kutumia moja ya magari yaliyokuwa yakiendeshwa na hao ndugu – (Toyota Hilux D/cabin). Kitu ambacho sikufahamu ni kwamba dereva wa gari nililochukua hakufurahishwa na aliazimia moyoni kunimaliza. Akishirikiana na mwenzie walikwenda kwa mganga wa kienyeji – mchawi na wakafanya walichofanya kwenye gari hilo usiku huo.
Naliondoka Entebe saa tisa jioni nikielekea Kalisizo umbali wa km 145. Na kama kawaida yangu siwashi gari bila kuomba kwanza, hivyo nikaliitia jina la YESU kwa ajili ya ulinzi. Nalipofika Kitubulu kama km 4 barabara ya Entebe – Kampala naligundua kuna kitu cha tofauti. Badala kuendesha nikiwa upande wa kushoto, gari lilikuwa likinivuta kwenda upande wa kulia. Kidogo nigongane uso kwa uso na gari jingine upande wa pili. Tatizo nalidhani ni upepo kwenye matairi hivyo naliamua nipite kituo cha mafuta ili kupima kama uko sawasawa na kisha niendelee na safari yangu. Nikiwa barabarani ile hali ikajirudia tena, naliliitia jina la Yesu na kuomba tena ulinzi wake. Nikiwa karibu na kukifikia kituo cha kujazia mafuta nalisikia mlio mkubwa kwenye bonnet ya gari, lakini sikusimama kwani nalichelea usiku ulikuwa umeendelea. Nalipofika kituoni ndipo nalipogundua kwamba Bwana amenilinda kwani betri ya gari ilikuwa imetoka nafasi yake wakati nikiendesha.
Nalipokuwa nikilala usiku huo niliwaza sana kwanini mambo haya yalikuwa yakitokea kwangu. Sikudhani hata kidogo juu ya nguvu za giza na mashetani. Naliomba kidogo na kisha kujilaza. Usiku huo Mungu hakunieleza chochote kuhusu jambo hilo si kwa ndoto wala kwa neno.
Asubuhi yake nalishtuka kwa swali naliloulizwa na mmojawapo wa wafanyikazi wenzangu. Aliniuliza: Makko, uko salama? Nami nikamjibu Mary niko salama. Nikamuuliza; kwa nini kuniuliza hivyo? Ndipo naye akasema, usiku huo aliota ndoto, na katika ndoto hiyo aliona wale madereva wawili (majina kapuni) wakiwa wameketi kwenye gema pembezoni mwa barabara wakiliangalia gari lako ulilokuwa ukiendesha jana. Katika ndoto hiyo, naliona wameweka majoka mawili makubwa, moja upande wa mbele kukatiza tairi za mbele na jingine nyuma ya gari lako vivyohivyo. Nao walisemazana wenyewe kwa wenyewe: “Ngoja tuone atavyo endesha hilo gari hapo!!”
Akaendelea: Lakini katika ndoto hiyo, nalikuona ukiliua joka la mbele. Na ulilipiga joka lile la nyuma lakini halikufa kabisa. Mary akamaliza kusimulia ndoto yake.
Mara zote huwa sizidharau ndoto kwani Mungu amekuwa akisema nami mara nyingi kwa njia hiyo. Nilirejea chumbani mwangu na kumshukuru Mungu kwa kunifunulia siri hiyo ya nguvu za giza katika ulimwengu wa roho. Kitu ninachojilaumu ni kwamba sikuomba sana juu ya jambo hilo japo niliambiwa kwamba joka moja halikufa bali lilijeruhiwa tu. Siku hiyo nalikuwa nikiendelea na safari kwa kutumia gari ileile nikielekea Kabundabunda, Mjini Kabula. Ghafla mojawapo ya spring za mbele ikakatika vipande viwili. Gari hili lilikuwa imara na kwa tukio hilo nikatambua kwamba sasa ninapambana na nguvu za giza za uchawi kwa mara nyingine tena.
Nikijua kwamba yuko mtu nyuma ya mambo haya na ambaye angependa nife, nilikasirika na kuamua kuchukua Biblia yangu (NIV version). Nikawaambia abiria wawili waliokuwamo garini, Fred na Mary, mmeziona nguvu za Shetani, sasa ni zamu ya nguvu za Mungu kuonekana. Sifahamu naliyatoa wapi maneno hayo. Nalijikuta nikitamka: “ Ndani ya siku nne, vitu hivihivi ambavyo adui zangu wanatamani vinipate vitawapata wao, kwani imeandikwa “… If a man digs a pit, he will fall into it; if a man rolls a stone, it will roll back on him..” Mithali 26:27.
Nikiwa nimelala usiku huo, Mungu alinionesha mafunuo ya ajabu. Na tazama, joka kubwa likikimbia toka kwenye gari naliyokuwa nikiiendesha na kuingia kwenye gari ya adui zangu. Siku iliyofuatia wakati hao ndugu walipokuwa wakiendesha gari lao, walihusika katika ajali mbaya ambayo iligharimu uhai wao. Hiyo ilikuwa ni siku ya nne baada ya kuwa nimenena maneno yale ya kwenye biblia. Fred na Mary walipoliona gari la wale ndugu lilivyoharibika waliyakumbuka maneno yangu. Nao wakasema kama Farao alivyosema: Hakika Mungu ni Mungu mwenye nguvu!!

they go bad, then I bring about victories and they go
well again. You must hold on to Me, seek Me, and follow
Me through each phase of life's cycles.
When you're faced with obstacles, tests and hardships,
don't let them discourage you. Don't be downcast or
worry that they will not be solved, or that victories
will not be won; for I say to you, they will, because
they are part of the cycle. But you must go through
this portion of the cycle to come out at the other end
That's the purpose of the cycle: that when the
problems and the difficulties arise, you rise up to meet them
in faith. You fight and you win, and that brings
forth the next portion of the cycle: the victory, the
progress, the forward movement. Then you are faced with
new challenges, new fights and new tests, and you must
once again fight, take up the challenge, seek Me, and
cry out to Me, that you may overcome these tests and
difficulties, and that you may then move out of that
portion of the cycle, and again on to the victory.
Like a wheel, the top goes down to the bottom and
comes up to the top again. That is motion, and that moves
the vehicle forward. That's what these cycles do--they
move you forward.
So you must take up the challenges, you must seek Me,
and you must win the victories, so that the cycle can
be ever turning, ever revolving, ever moving
forward--so that you will constantly be moving forward,
growing, going on, ever upward, ever forward and on to
Loving you deeply,
And as your days, so shall your strength be.
Have not I commanded? Be strong and of a good courage, be not afraid, neither be dismayed:
for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
Be strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded.
For the joy of the Lord is your strength.
It is God that girds me with strength, and makes my way perfect.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life;
whom shall I be afraid?
Lord, by your favour you have made my mountain to stand strong.
God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in trouble.
Your God has commanded your strength: strengthen, 0 God, that which you have wrought for us.
I will go in the strength of the Lord God.
My flesh and my heart fails: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.
The Lord is my strength and song and is become my salvation.
For He has strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your children within you.
In returning and rest shall you be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.
He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increases strength.
:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength they shall mount up with wings as
eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.
Fear not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yes, I
will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness.
My God shall be My strength.
Let the weak say, I am strong.
The Lord God is my strength.
Be strong, all you people of the land, and work: for I am with you, says the Lord of Hosts.
Not by might, or by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts.
And His Name through faith in His Name has made this man strong.
He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory
Watch you, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh. (For the weapons of our warfare
are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.) Casting down
imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and
bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
My grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in weakness...… for when I am
weak, then am I strong.
That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might
by His Spirit in the inner man.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and
longsuffering with joyfulness.
You, therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me.
Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the
mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness
were made strong, waxed valiant in fight.
But the God of all grace, who has called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that
you have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the Word of God abides in you,
and you have overcome the wicked one.
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the
kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down,
which accused them before our God day and night.

Dear readers, before I proceed I would like to give you this example which took place in India:
A person came to India when the British ruled it.
We understand that "O people" and "you all" here means only the people of India although the words are general but they give a restricted meaning because that person has clearly mentioned his scope earlier.
After you have read this article I believe you will agree with me that it is very clear that Muhammad claimed to be a Warner only for Arabia and to have received a revelation for them in Arabic so that they can understand it.
I have tried to read here and there from the Quran also contacting some of my friends both muslims and christians, Sheikhs and pastors before I came out with this little article. I however still need to know more of it and whoever with negative comments upon this article should come out with concrete evidence from either the bible, quran itself or any scholarly literature. I discourage mere words!!
Why Muhammad was meant for Arabic only!!??
Following are my reasons supported by Quranic verses whose translation is in bold:
1) "(Mohammed) You are only a Warner and for every nation there is a guide." (13:7)
The principle given by the Quran here proves that as per his own standards Mohammed can only be a guide for his nation i.e. Arabs.
2) "And we have sent no messenger but with the language of his people, that he might make (the message) clear for them." (14:4)
This principle also proves that as per his own standards Mohammed can only be a guide for Arabic speaking people.
3) "He is (Allah) who has raised among the unlettered people a messenger from among themselves" (62:2)
"Umeen" could also mean people of Makkah (Ijaz-ul-Quran wa Ikhtilaf-e-Qirat, pp 398 -410) .
4) "And this (Quran) is a blessed book which we have revealed, confirming that which was (revealed) before it, so that you (O prophet) may warn the mother of the cities (Makkah) and those around her." (6:92)
The above verses clearly show that Mohammed claims to have received a revelation in Arabic to warn people of Makkah and those living close to it, of course the Arabic speaking people.
5) "Then we gave Moses the book, complete for him who would do good, an explanation of all things, a guidance and a mercy, so that they might believe in the meeting with their Lord." (6:154)
"And this (Quran) is a blessed book which we have revealed, so follow it and fear Allah that you may receive mercy." (6:155)
"Lest you (pagan Arabs) should say: The book was sent down to the two sects before us (the Jews and the Christians) and for our part we were in fact unaware of what they studied (because that book was in a different language)." (6:156)
These verses claim that the book given to Moses was complete. The Quran was revealed because the book of Moses was in a language foreign to the Arabs and they could have made this as an excuse for not following the book of Moses.
6) "Verily, We made it a Quran in Arabic so that you may be able to understand" (43:3)
This verse is clear enough to prove that Quran is in Arabic so that Arabs can understand it.
To say that this book is for non Arabic speaking people is as ridiculous as telling a Tanzanian person, "I have written this book in Chinese so that you can understand."
I know of some literatures that muslim scholars use to claim universality for Mohammed's Prophethood and the Quran. But all of them do not direct indicate that he was meant for the whole world.
Beware of using the word "Aalameen" mentioned in several verses in Quran as was meant for all people! NOT AT ALL!! I have enough literatures to support my argument, am just conscious of space.
I insist: HOJA HUJIBIWA KWA HOJA.
May God the father, God the son and the Holy Spirit bless you all!

These twelve (disciples) Jesus sent out with the following instructions: "Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel." Matthew 10:5-6
He (Jesus) answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel." Matthew 15:24
It is important to realize first of all that Jesus was born of the lineage of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He was the fulfillment of the promise that God had made to Abraham many centuries earlier. Because of obedience and submission to God's will, God's promise to Abraham was two-fold.
For my eyes have seen Your salvation, which You have prepared in the sight of all people, a light (1) for revelation to the Gentiles, and (2) for glory to Your people Israel. Luke 2:30-32
From the passage above, we understand Jesus' ministry to be likewise two-fold. First of all, because he was born of the Children of Israel, his first mission was to reveal himself and God to the Israelites. They were God's chosen people -- the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Even the Qur'an bears witness to this distinction:
And commemorate Our servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, possessors of power and vision. Verily, We did choose them for a special (purpose) -- proclaiming the message of the hereafter. Surat-us Sad (38):45-46
Children of Israel, call to mind the (special) favour which I bestowed upon you, and that I preferred you to all others (for My message). Surat-ul Baqara (2):47
Unfortunately, over the course of time, the Children of Israel had grown hardened and indifferent to the things of God. As a result, it was necessary for Jesus to minister personally among them with signs and wonders in order to confirm to them that he was the long-awaited Messiah, the Blessed One, the Anointed One whom God had sent to redeem His chosen people.
And you are heirs of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers. He said to Abraham, "Through your offspring (descendants), all people on earth will be blessed." When God raised his servant (Jesus the Messiah), He sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.Acts 3:25-26
It is important to realize that the second part of Jesus' mission was most significant. That mission was to give his life a ransom for the sins of all mankind (1 Timothy 2:4-6). This was the blessing that was for all nations -- the good news that Jesus, by the shed blood of his suffering on the cross, paid the penalty for the sins of mankind, and that whoever accepts this blessing of salvation is assured eternal life with God!
This is what is written: The Christ (Al-Masih) will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Luke 24:46-47
The Scriptures are clear that this salvation in Jesus the Messiah is available for all people, both Jews and Gentiles of all nations. Remember, during Jesus' earthly and personal ministry he instructed his disciples to go only to the Israelites. But after the second part of his mission was completed (his atoning death on the cross), notice what he then instructed his disciples:
You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8
... go and make disciples of all nations (all people). Matthew 28:19
Jesus himself confirmed the universal nature of his mission when he declared these words:
I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. John 8:12
Again Jesus is referring to himself as that special blessing or revelation of mercy for all people, for all mankind.
... and (We wish) to appoint him (Jesus) as a Sign unto men ("ayat-al linnasi"), and a mercy from Us. Surat-u Maryam (19):21
Notice, it does not say, "a sign only to the Israelites" as some Muslims would have us believe. In fact the Arabic indicates a "sign to mankind!"

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright has made a number of controversial statements.
The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor for the last 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago's south side, has a long history of what even Obama's campaign aides concede is "inflammatory rhetoric," including the assertion that the United States brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own "terrorism."
In a campaign appearance earlier this month, Sen. Obama said, "I don't think my church is actually particularly controversial." He said Rev. Wright "is like an old uncle who says things I don't always agree with," telling a Jewish group that everyone has someone like that in their family.
Rev. Wright married Obama and his wife Michelle, baptized their two daughters and is credited by Obama for the title of his book, "The Audacity of Hope."
An ABC News review of dozens of Rev. Wright's sermons, offered for sale by the church, found repeated denunciations of the U.S. based on what he described as his reading of the Gospels and the treatment of black Americans.
"The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people," he said in a 2003 sermon. "God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme."
In addition to damning America, he told his congregation on the Sunday after Sept. 11, 2001 that the United States had brought on al Qaeda's attacks because of its own terrorism.
"We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye," Rev. Wright said in a sermon on Sept. 16, 2001.
"We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost," he told his congregation.
Sen. Obama told the New York Times he was not at the church on the day of Rev. Wright's 9/11 sermon. "The violence of 9/11 was inexcusable and without justification," Obama said in a recent interview. "It sounds like he was trying to be provocative," Obama told the paper.
Rev. Wright, who announced his retirement last month, has built a large and loyal following at his church with his mesmerizing sermons, mixing traditional spiritual content and his views on contemporary issues.
"I wouldn't call it radical. I call it being black in America," said one congregation member outside the church last Sunday.
"He has impacted the life of Barack Obama so much so that he wants to portray that feeling he got from Rev. Wright onto the country because we all need something positive," said another member of the congregation.
Rev. Wright, who declined to be interviewed by ABC News, is considered one of the country's 10 most influential black pastors, according to members of the Obama campaign.
Obama has praised at least one aspect of Rev. Wright's approach, referring to his "social gospel" and his focus on Africa, "and I agree with him on that."
Sen. Obama declined to comment on Rev. Wright's denunciations of the United States, but a campaign religious adviser, Shaun Casey, appearing on "Good Morning America" Thursday, said Obama "had repudiated" those comments.
In a statement to ABCNews.com, Obama's press spokesman Bill Burton said, "Sen. Obama has said repeatedly that personal attacks such as this have no place in this campaign or our politics, whether they're offered from a platform at a rally or the pulpit of a church. Sen. Obama does not think of the pastor of his church in political terms. Like a member of his family, there are things he says with which Sen. Obama deeply disagrees. But now that he is retired, that doesn't detract from Sen. Obama's affection for Rev. Wright or his appreciation for the good works he has done."
Moja ya mambo hayo ni suala la watumishi wa Mungu kuwapa washirika wao vitisho kiasi cha kuwafanya washirika hao kuwaogopa kwa kuwaona wao ni miungu watu.Mara nyingine unaona mlokole anamsifia mchungaji au mtume au nabii au mwinjilisti au mwalimu anayeongoza huduma alipo huyo mlokole kana kwamba huyo mtumishi wa Mungu ni substitute ya YESU..Nimewahi kuona mara nyingi mtu anasema kuwa yaani mtumishi flani ni kama YESU jamani.Huyu mtu anatisha jamani….hivi watumishi wa Mungu tunalipeleka wapi kanisa la Mungu?Hivi ndivyo tunavyowafundisha washirika wetu au ni nani kawafundisha hawa washirika wako wakuone wewe ni kama upo sawa na YESU kiasi cha kukutukuza wewe tu muda wao wote nakuona bila wewe maisha yao ya wokovu ni kama bure?
Nafahamu wapo watumishi wengi wa Mungu walitangulia mbele za Bwana na walikuwa wamewafundisha washirika wao vizuri kiasi kwamba hata walipoondoka wao bado kondoo wao waliendelea vizuri na kuchanua na kuzaa matunda bora.Ila nina wasiwasi na kondoo hawa wa watumishi hawa kama

Thou art with Christ, & Christ with me, in Him united still are we!"--Our dear ones are with the Lord, & if we keep near to Him, we cannot be far from them! "Does Jesus care when I've said good-bye, To the dearest on Earth to me? When my sad heart aches, till it nearly breaks, Is it aught to Him? Does He see? Oh, yes, He cares, I know He cares, His heart is touched with my grief; Though the days be weary, the long nights dreary, I know my Savior cares!"

The example of Mohamed on adultery Sahih Muslim, Book 17: 4206
There came to him (the Holy Prophet) a woman from Ghamid and said: Allah's Messenger, I have committed adultery, so purify me. He (the Holy Prophet) turned her away. On the following day she said: Allah's Messenger, Why do you turn me away? Perhaps, you turn me away as you turned away Ma'iz. By Allah, I have become pregnant. He said: Well, if you insist upon it, then go away until you give birth to (the child). When she was delivered she came with the child (wrapped) in a rag and said: Here is the child whom I have given birth to. He said: Go away and suckle him until you wean him. When she had weaned him, she came to him (the Holy Prophet) with the child who was holding a piece of bread in his hand. She said: Allah's Apostle, here is he as I have weaned him and he eats food. He (the Holy Prophet) entrusted the child to one of the Muslims and then pronounced punishment. And she was put in a ditch up to her chest and he commanded people and they stoned her. Khalid b Walid came forward with a stone which he flung at her head and there spurted blood on the face of Khalid and so he abused her. Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) heard his (Khalid's) curse that he had hurried upon her. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Khalid, be gentle. By Him in Whose Hand is my life, she has made such a repentance that even if a wrongful tax-collector were to repent, he would have been forgiven. Then giving command regarding her, he prayed over her and she was buried.
And now contrast that peaceful religion with the hateful Christianity :
The example of Jesus on adultery (John 8:1-11)
But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them. The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the center of the court, they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act. "Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?" They were saying this, testing Him, so that they might have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground. But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. When they heard it, they began to go out one by one, beginning with the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the center of the court. Straightening up, Jesus said to her, "Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?" She said, "No one, Lord."
Akisema, Msiwaguse masihi wangu, Wala msiwadhuru nabii zangu.Zaburi 105:15
Nimekuwa nikiamini sana andiko la kuwa ukiujua ukweli utakuweka huru, tunaishi katika zama ambazo biblia imetushauri tuwe wajanja kama nyoka na wapole kama ua, tunaishi katika zama ambazo ama kwa hakika aina nyingi za uovu zinapatikana katika makanisa yetu, watu ambao tulitegemea wangekuwa msaada wa kuongoza watu hasa wafikie kulijua andiko ndio wanakuwa wakwanza kupindisha maandiko kwa manufaa binafsi, nilishtuka nilipokuwa ninaabudu kanisa moja kuna mtu akasimama na kusema ‘’hata mtumishi wa Mungu akikosea hutakiwi kumfanya lolote lile kwani ni mpakwa mafuta wa Mungu na ya kuwa hata Miriam na Haruni waliadhibiwa kwa sababu walimng’ong’a na kumlaumu mtumishi wa Mungu Mussa kwa sababu alioa mkushi’’
Lakini ikumbukwe makosa ya mtumishi huyu anayetetewa ni dhahiri, na huyu aliyesimama hapa kumtetea si ya kuwa anapaswa alaumiwe bali nae ni upungufu wa kutoelewa maandiko na kutomruhusu Roho wa Mungu atawale au ni mmoja wa wale wanaonufaika na kile anachonufaika mchungaji. Kwa kisingizio cha andiko la kuwa msimguse masihi wa Mungu , na kutolea mfano Musa, na Daudi watumishi wengi wa Mungu wamefanya mambo ya ajabu makanisani kama vile makanisa ni yao na wala si ya Yesu, kuna watu wamefukuzwa makanisani, wametengwa, wameathiriwa kisaikolojia, wametishiwa watakufa! Kwa sababu wameuliza, wamekosoa,wako wachungaji waliolala na waumini wao, wasiulizwe eti! wako ambao utendaji wao wa udhihirisho wa Roho ni wa ajabu sio wa Roho wa Mungu bali roho za ajabu ajabu, wako walio na wanaowachagulia waumini wao mke au mme wengine ndoa zinavunjika na kwa kweli wanaishi katika huathiriwa wa ndoa kama Bahati Bukuku anavyoimba nyingi zimevunjika!! Wako waliofanya utapeli wa mali za kanisa na kuzifanya zao, wako waliozuia vijana wao wasioane kisa mchungaji hampendi kijana au binti na wala sio kumuuliza Mungu, viko vituko vingi ambavyo vikiandikwa nafasi haitoshi wala muda haupo, lakini katika makanisa ambayo yalikosa demokrasia ya Mungu walikuwa Roman Catholic (siyo sasa) hapo zamani lakini hali hii inajirudia kwa mlango tena hasa kwenye makanisa ya kilokole, ambapo wale wachungaji wa kiroho wanaowaongoza waliojazwa Roho wanaogopa maswali pengine ya kiroho, wanaogopa changamoto, wanaogopa kuonywa maana ni wakubwa kuliko Petro aliyeonywa na Paulo, wanaogopa kuna wachungaji wamewaumiza mno waumini wao kisa ‘’Msimguse masihi wa Mungu’’
Baada ya yule mtumishi wa Mungu ambaye ni msomi kutetea machafu aliyofanya mchungaji nikapata wakati mzuri wa kuujua ukweli, sio kuwa nina mlaumu aliyemtetea mchungaji kwa kwenda kinyume na maandiko labda hajui, japo kutokujua kiMungu bado adhabu yake ni kuangamia, kwani anasema watu wangu wanaangamia kwa kukosa maarifa.WAKATI mwafrika mlokole anasema msiwaguse masihi wa Mungu mtangamizwa na kuadhibiwa, wazungu wabaguzi wa rangi nao wanasema kwa Miriam na Haruni waliadhibiwa kwa sababu tu Musa alikuwa mpakwa mafuta wa Mungu lakini Musa naye aliadhibiwa kwa sababu hakuiona kaanani,kwa hiyo wazungu wasiwaoe watu weusi!!. kumbuka siri ya kwa nini Musa hakuingia kaanani bado kila mtu anatoa sababu zake.
Kuna haja ya kujua maandiko, tumeipunguza biblia na kuona ni kitabu cha kusoma wakati fulani tu, tena kwa mazoea, wala si kwa kusoma kwa lengo la siku hiyo au wakati huo unaposoma kuhakikisha Mungu anaongeza kitu. Kuna hatari sana ya kizazi hiki kuishi kwa maandiko yale yale na tafsiri ile ile uliyoipata miaka 10(sio makosa), iliyopita!! Andiko la Mungu ni hai linafanya kazi kila siku chini ya uongozi wa Roho, unapata tafsiri mpya nzuri zinazomjenga na kumtengeza mtu kulingana na hitaji lake, mstari mmoja unaweza ukawa na maana nyingi lakini zote zenye lengo la kulinda utakatifu wa Mungu.huku tafsiri za zamani zikiwa tayari tunazifanyia kazi na kuziishia maana raha ya neno ni kuishi kama lisemavyo na sio kama ulivyokariri!
Kama kuna mwalimu ambaye aliulizwa maswali mengi basi hakuna kama Yesu, aliulizwa mpaka maswali ambayo wachungaji wengi leo aidha wanayakwepa au kukataa achilia mbali kuwa wanaulizwa na waumini wao, Yesu aliulizwa hata na wasiokuwa wanampenda!!
Nilianza kujiuliza maswali mengi na moja ni ‘kinga’ waliyonayo wachungaji mbona Mungu hana upendeleo?? Kwani hii imekuwa katiba ya kuwa watu fulani viongozi wa Tanzania hata wakifanya makosa wana kinga hawawezi kushtakiwa mpaka kinga hiyo iondolewe, huku mataifa mengine mtu yeyote akifanya kosa anashtakiwa! ‘’Petro akafumbua kinywa chake akasema, Hakika natambua ya kuwa Mungu hana upendeleo’’Matendo 10:34. Ninaamini maneno ya Mungu huwa hayana walakini wala matatizo ila watu kwa akili zao na manufaa yao wamegeuza maneno mengine kuendana na wao wanavyotaka, wako wanaosema pombe sio dhambi, wako wanaoweza kuoa wake wengi wakisema mbona fulani na fulani walifanya hivyo, wako wanaofanya vituko vingi sana hili hali kila mmoja ameweka viwango vyake na wala si viwango vya Mungu. Huwa nawaambia watu fikiria Yesu amekuja na akakaa siku mbili tu labda ikulu halafu akasema atafanya ziara kila nyumba na makanisa! watu wengine hawatakuwa tayari kumkaribisha! Wengine watafanya shauri auawe tena, kwani atakuja kuwaaribia dili zao na biashara zao, wengi watahaha kama watu Fulani ambao huwa wanahaha pale rais anaposema anaenda kuwatembelea, nakumbuka zamani nilipokuwa shule ya msingi tulikuwa tunapaka matofali rangi nyeupe au kwa majivu pale afisa elimu anapokuja kututembelea , usiulize kama mkuu wa wilaya anakuja kutembelea au rais !! siku mbili hamuingii darasani!Andiko hili la zaburi 105:15 linajieleza na kujifunua kwa namna nyingi.
Waalimu au waabudu wa andiko hili wameshindwa kutofautisha kati ya wapakwa mafuta wa agano la kale na wale wa wa agano jipya , wakati wapakwa mafuta wa agano la kale walikuwa ni mmoja mmoja (Isaiah 61:1; 1 Samuel 26:9-11; 2 Samuel 22:51; 2 Chronicles 6:42), Agano jipya linasemaje, je siku hizi watu fulani ndio wana upako kuliko wengine? ‘’Ninyi nanyi, kama mawe yaliyo hai, mmejengwa mwe nyumba ya Roho, ukuhani mtakatifu, mtoe dhabihu za roho, zinazokubaliwa na Mungu, kwa njia ya Yesu Kristo’’ 1petro 2:5, Nani anaambiwa hapa kuwa wamejengwa kuwa nyumba ya Roho? Je si tunaambiwa tena kuwa miili yetu ni hekalu la Roho mtakatifu?? Je ili andiko linawabagua kati ya wachungaji na wasio wachungaji? Tena biblia inathibitisha kuwa Yesu ndiye mzaliwa wa kwanza tena ndiye Kuhani mkuu nasi tu makuhani ‘’Bali ninvi ni mzao mteuli. Ukuhani wa kifalme, taifa takatifu.watu wa-milki va Mungu mpate kutangaza fadhili zake yeye alivewaita mtoke gizani mkaingie katika nuru yake ya ajabu’’ 1 petro 2:9. nani anaambiwa hapa? Je Roho mtakatifu alishuka kwa watu wachache tu ambao ni wachungaji? Nani amesema kuwa agano jipya wachungaji wana upako zaidi ya waumini.
Dhana hii imesababisha wachungaji wengi kuwaonea waumini wao, kujikweza na baadae kuanguka machoni pa Mungu, japo wanakuwa na majina yaliyo hai lakini tayari wengi wao wamepotea na wataenda kuzimu, MAKANISA YAMEJAA WAUMINI ‘’DORMANT’’ WAUMINI WALIOMEZESHWA SUMU KUWA MCHUNGAJI PEKEE NDIYE MWENYE UPAKO, makanisa mengi yana waumini wasiomtumikia Mungu, wasioweza kuomba, kuombea wagonjwa, wasioeneza injili ya Mungu, wasiofanya chochote kwani mawazo yao yamedumaa, na wachungaji wengi wanafurahia hali hii, kuwa na mshirika miaka kumi kanisani asiyeweza kufanya lolote wala hutaki akue kiroho kwani ataondoka, sadaka atapata wapi?? Akifungua tawi anaogopa kwani moto wake wa kiroho anaweza akavuta waumini wake, ndiyo tumebaki na kanisa lisilokua lenye watu wanaosema wameokoka wengi kwa fasheni, waumini ambao wako kama kondoo wasioweza kuuliza lolote kwani wanaogopa kumuumiza mpakwa mafuta wa Mungu,waumini waliotayari kuambiwa Yesu anakuja tarehe 30 na waende kumpokea porini, huku walokole wengi wakiwalaumu hao wengine wamesahau kuwa hata katika makanisa yao wako hivyo hivyo ila viwango vya ujinga wa kiroho vimetofautiana najiuliza hivi Tanzania tungekuwa na akina Kulola mia moja tungekuwa wapi? Achilia mbali kuwa hata yeye mwenyewe ameshindwa kumtoa kama yeye!.Makanisa yamejaa ukabila, ubaguzi, wenye hela ndio wanatawala makanisa achilia mbali kama pia ni watenda dhambi ili mradi sadaka ije.
Au hakuna ushaidi wa kupakwa mafuta kwa watu wote wa agano jipya?? ‘’Basi yeye atufanyaye imara pamoja nanyi katika Kristo na kututia mafuta ni Mungu’’2 korinto 1:21, Biblia inazidi kuthibitisha kuwa sisi wote tuko sawa ‘’Kwa maana katika Roho mmoja sisi sote tulibatizwa kuwa mwili mmoja,kwamba tu Wayahudi, au kwamba tu Wayunani; ikiwa tu watumwa au ikiwa tu huru; nasi sote tulinyweshwa Roho mmoja’’ 1 korinto 12:13. Enyi wachungaji, manabii, wainjilisti, walimu, n.k kujiona kuwa mna upako zaidi si kwenda kinyume na Mungu?, na je si ndio sababu ya kudumaza waumini wengi kiroho??, mmeiua dhana ya kuwa sisi sote ni viungo na kila kimoja kinamanufaa yake mwilini, na tunategemeana je watumishi wa Mungu hawategemei viungo vingine ndani ya kanisa?? Kama wachungaji hamtegemei viungo vingine basi wengi mna KASORO, maana viungo vingine viliwekwa viwakune, viwaogeshe, viwasugue, viwakumbushe, viwaonye,viwasafishe, viwape chakula(hiki mnakipenda sana), je kuna haki ya mtumishi wa Mungu fulani kujiona ana haki sana(kiungo yeye ni bora sana kuliko vingine??) kuliko waumini wengine?? Hata kama anafanya makosa? Ni kinyume na neno la Mungu Rumi 12;4-6 inasema Kwa kuwa kama vile katika mwili mmoja tuna viungo vingi, wala viungo vyote havitendi kazi moja; Vivyo hivyo na sisi tulio wengi tu mwili mmoja katika Kristo, na viungo, kila mmoja kwa mwenzake. Andiko linamalizia kusema kila mmoja ana karama yake kanisani!! MUNGU HANA WAFUASI WAKUBWA WALA MAALUM. Halafu wengine sio maalum
Sio kuwa kutoa pepo na miujiza ndiyo hamna kasoro wala hamwezi kuulizwa pale tunapokuwa na wasiwasi, 1 Yohana 4:1 inasema tuzijaribu kila Roho, hata kama jana nilikuona ukitoa pepo kwa jina la Yesu, lakini leo nina wasiwasi kwa nini nisiulize?? Mbona Sauli alikuwa mpakwa mafuta wa Mungu na baadae akapotea njia?, na pia sijuia ni lini na wakati gani umewafuata wamataifa kwa hiyo umeshakatwa nywele kama Samson? .” A. A. Allen alikuwa mlevi ambaye miujiza ilitokea kwenye mkutano wake,, Jimmy Swaggart mnunuaji wanawake wanaojiuza, Jim Bakker mwizi na mzinzi, Larry Lea alikuwa mwongo, and Robert Tilton tapeli.sijawasema watanzania, wala mataifa mengine hao ni wamarekani tu, miujiza ilitendeka katika mikutano yao, siwahukumu wala kuwasema vibaya . Wengine wanapoanguka ni wakati mazuri wa wale mliosimama kujua ni kwa nini, wengine hawakukubali maonyo, hawakutaka kusikia kwani wana upako!!, naamini pengine wasomao na wakajigundua kuwa wamekosea ni wakati mzuri wa kujirudi kwani naamini nina Roho wa Mungu, lakini nachelea usije ukawa ni mmoja wa walioanguka na hawajui kuwa wameanguka! Pale unapoona wewe ni mtakatifu huku ukidharau viungo vingine visikuulize wewe nani na jinsi unavyotenda utumishi wako ndio mwanzo wa maangamizi, wangapi agano la kale walikataa maonyo ya manabii na wakaangamia na upako wao?? Watumishi wengi wamejiinua kamwe hawaishi maisha aliyoishi Yesu sisemi Yesu aje mbagala au msasani sisemi Yesu apande daladala kama wewe, Roho yuleyule wa Yesu ndiye huyuhuyu wa sasa, habadiliki wala hana fasheni YEYE ni Mwanzo na Mwisho. Hana wakati andiko hili cha ajabu limetawala sana miaka ya tisini kuwa usimguse masihi wa Mungu hata kama anafanya ya kishetani na yasiyotambulika mbinguni.Akisema, Msiwaguse masihi wangu, Wala msiwadhuru nabii zangu.Zaburi 105:15
Nilitegemea andiko hili wale walioenda shule za biblia wangetusaidia tatizo wengi tuna mawazo wanaotakiwa kwenda shule za biblia ni wale wachungaji tu!! Ni muhimu kwa wote na ikiwezekana shule zisogezwe karibu sana na walipo watu kila kanisa lifanye hivi, kuna makanisa kama winners Chapel(siabudu huko), wao bible school ni kwa kila mtu wala sio wachungaji tu, tumeushusha ulokole na kuonekana ni dini na ina matabaka ndani yake, sijui kama kuna mchungaji jasiri anayeweza kusema nimefungua makanisa mengi sana, kuna mwingine akifungua matawi mawili basi ndiyo mahubiri ya miaka 20!
Lakini Akisema, Msiwaguse masihi wangu, Wala msiwadhuru nabii zangu.Zaburi 105:15 ina maana gani hasa kimaandiko na kitafsiri?? Kiebrania hili andiko linasomeka hivi ‘’ naga` mashiyach nabiy' ra`a`, na matamshi yake ni naw-gah' maw-shee'-akh naw-bee' raw-ah' wakati biblia tunazosoma zimetafiriwa moja kwa moja toka kiingereza ambacho kinasema ‘’Touch Not Mine Anointed’. Msiwaguse- Naga(naw-gah’) tafsiri sahihi ni piga, angusha, na siyo gusa au touch, hili ni tatizo la sehemu nyingi katika biblia ambayo haina maana kuwa biblia ina mapungufu hapana, iko palepale na iko sahihi, Jamani Mungu ni mwema wala akili zake hazichunguziki unafikiri alikuwa hajui kuwa matatizo ya tafsiri yatatokea tunaye mwalimu wa ajabu –ROHO anatufundisha na kutufunulia siri nzito. kwa maneno na tafsiri sahihi.Naga ni piga, ndugu usimpige wala kumuumiza mtumishi yeyote wa Mungu yaani anayesema ameokoka anayeishi maisha matakatifu, maana kufanya hivyo ni kugusa mboni ya jicho la Mungu. Nimeona watu wengi waliowapiga wachungaji waliosimama kiroho wakifa ghafla maana wanatimiza andiko, na hii sitoi mfano huu ili kuwapa upendeleo wachungaji kwani wako wanaokaa magotini na kumtafuta Mungu na ndipo wanapokuwa na nguvu, hii haimzuii mtu yeyote kumtafuta Mungu na akawa na upako zaidi ya mchungaji wake(ila hatuna vipimo vya upako ila tuna tofauti ya karama), lakini pia hatoi kibali kuwa kwa sababu unakaa magotini mwa Mungu basi uwadharau wengine na kuwaona hawana thamani kwa Mungu.
Tumeona maana ya neno gusa asili yake ni NAGA ikimaanisha kupiga na sio kuuliza maswali, kukosoa, kuonya kama wengi wa wachungaji wasivyopenda iwe.
Daudi aliposema msiguse masihi wa Mungu alisema sentensi hiyo 1 samwel 26:3-11, akiwa na kisu askari mmoja akamwambia muue Sauli Daudi akasema msiguse masihi wa Mungu akimaanisha kumpiga kumdhuru kimwili, mstari wa 17-24 Daudi anamwambia Sauli Mungu alikutia mikononi mwangu lakini sijakugusa hakuwa na maana kumgusa mwili, kumbuka alikata kipande cha vazi la Sauli, tena anamlaumu Abneri mlinzi wa Sauli kuwa anafaa auawe kwa sababu ameshindwa kumlinda mfalme.
Yule muameleki alirudi na kumuambia Daudi kuwa nimemuua mpakwa mafuta wa Mungu 2 Samwel 1: 13-16. Biblia inaonyesha wazi neno hili lilimaanisha kumuumiza kimwili
Sasa swali je Kwa nini Musa baada ya kumuoa mkushi ndugu zake Miriam na Haruni waliadhibiwa kwa sababu ya kumlaumu??
Kweli Haruni na Miriam walifanya makosa ambayo wengi huwa wanafanya, Hesabu 12:1, biblia inasema Miriam na Haroni walimnung’unikia Musa kwa sababu ya mwanamke mkushi aliyekuwa ameoa, kwa sababu ameoa mkushi. Tafsiri zingine potofu za kiingereza zinasema kuwa mwanamke wa kiethiopia, hapa uwe mwangalifu, mkushi ni kizazi cha kushi, kumbuka Nuhu alikuwa na watoto watatu Shemu Hamu na Yafeti,Mwanzo 10:6.inaeleza watoto wa Hamu walikuwa Kushi, Mizraimu na Puti na kanaani, Nuhu na wanawe walikuwa weupe hii haina shaka, watoto wao walikuwa bila shaka weupe, Mizraimu maana yake ni misri, kumbuka wamisri wote walikuwa weupe wala hakukuwa na kizazi cheusi zaidi ya weusi waliokuwa watumwa tena wakifanya kazi wakiwa na minyororo, kwa hiyo hatutarajii huyu mke wa Musa alitoka Kushi ya Ethiopia wala hakuna andiko linalosema Musa alienda Ethiopia, huyu Mkushi sasa alitoka wapi?? Kipindi cha biblia kulikuwa na kushi mbili ya Afrika ambayo ni Ethiopia ya sasa, kulikuwa na kushi nyingine Mashariki mwa Mesopotamia ambayo kuna wakati ilikuwa ni milki ya wababiloni hawa nao pia hawakuwa weusi.Sasa mke wa Musa anatoka wapi?? Musa hakwenda Ethiopia , Unakumbuka Musa alikimbilia Midiani baada ya kumuua mmisri?? Alipofika Midian akapewa mke Reuel jina hili likiwa na maana ya rafiki wa Mungu. wengine wanadai labda ndiye huyu.
Ibrahimu alioa mke mwingine jina lake akiitwa Ketura. Akamzalia Zimrani, Na Yokshani, Na Medani, Na Midiani, Na Ishbaki, na Sua. Mwanzo 251-2: Wakati kuna uwezekano mkubwa kuwa huyu mke wake hakuwa na rangi sawa na akina Miriam alikuwa mweusi pengine sio kama mimi, lakini bado kuna maswali mengi katika hili.Haitatusadia sana kujua alitoka wapi lakini tunaona matokeo na aina ya adhabu ya Mungu kwa Miriam, ‘’Kisha hilo wingu likaondoka kutoka pale juu ya hema; na tazama, Miriamu akawa mwenye ukoma, mweupe kama theluji; Haruni akamwangalia Miriamu, na tazama yu mwenye ukoma’’Hesabu 12: 10.Miriam na Haruni waliringia ngozi yao, na Mungu akawapa adhabu za ngozi!! Walikuwa wabaguzi Mungu aliposema wasio watu wamataifa mengine hakumaanisha kwa sababu ya rangi bali kwa sababu ya imani yao, ndio maana tunaona Ruthu pamoja na kuwa mmataifa lakini kwa sababu alikuwa anamuamini Mungu wa Naomi akaolewa na Ruth na kizazi cha Yesu kimetokea hapo, yaani katika moja ya bibi zake Yesu mmoja alikuwa sio mwisrael akimaanisha Yesu alikuja na akitayarishwa na Mungu kwa watu wote duniani! Lingine Miriam na Haruni hawakujua pamoja na rangi tofauti ya Mkushi huyo lakini alikuwa ni wa taifa lao chanzo ni Ibrahimu.Walokole wangapi tunabaguana kwa sababu ya hali zetu, mali, makabila makanisa, historia n.k kumbe sisi wote wa Mungu?
Kwa hiyo, Musa hakufanya kosa lolote ni ujinga wa Miriam na Haruni wala sio kisingizio eti kwa sababu Musa alifanya makosa basi mchungaji wa leo naye anafanya kosa akitoa kisingizio cha Musa. MUSA HAKUFANYA KOSA. Wala hakuwa huko mliko nyie kwa kusingizia mna kinga ya Mungu.Wakati Mussa anawaombea msamaha Haruni na Miriam na wakatakaswa leo tuna wachungaji wengi wanalaani waumini wao na wachungaji wa makanisa jirani, bila kujua hao ni Israel hivyo wanajilaani wenyewe!!
Matendo ya mitume inaeleza wazi jinsi watumishi walivyoonyana, walivyokaripiana na bado wakapendana.
Yesu anasemaje?? Akawaambia, Wafalme wa Mataifa huwatawala, na wenye Mamlaka juu Yao huitwa Wenye fadhili; lakini kwenu ninyi sivyo; Bali aliye mkubwa kwenu na awe kama aliye mdogo; na mwenye kuongoza kama yule atumikaye. Maana aliye mkubwa ni yupi? Yeye aketiye chakulani, au yule atumikaye? Siye yule aketiye chakulani? Lakini mimi kati yenu ni kama atumikaye.Luka 22:25-27. Hali ya kutafsiri maneno ya Mungu ili yatupe manufaa yaetu binafsi ndiyo yamelifikisha kanisa la Mungu hapa lilipo. Tuna makanisa ambayo hayana sura ya Mungu aliye mmoja, mwenye tabia moja. Wachungaji nimethibitisha jinsi ambavyo wengi wenu msivyokuwa na maisha ya mvuto, mmewakwaza wengi na wamepotea na hawataki kurudi mmewarudisha watu nyuma, hamjatengeza familia ya Mungu ambayo mnaweza mkaka chini mkaulizana, mkaonyana kwa upendo wa undugu, kila mmoja anajiona sahihi huku kunawezekano hakuna hata mmoja sahihi!.
Yesu aliulizwa nani wewe usiulizwe, Yesu alijibu wala hakumtisha mtu alijibu kimaandiko watu wakafurahi Yesu angewajibu kwa vitisho na mikwara ‘’unanijua wewe utaniona nitakupeleka motoni’’ Yesu angeweka visasi nani angepona, wale waliomuuliza maswali hata tunayoyaona ya kijinga leo ndio wale waliookoka na kutangaza injili yake kwa Nguvu.Tuamke sasa tumeshapoteza sura ya Mungu hatuna waberoya leo kwani wanaogopa kuwa wakiuliza maswali wataambiwa utakufa.
Kuna maswali mengi ya kuuliza imani yetu tunaweza tukayatatua kwa upendo wa kukaa chini kujadili,hili litasababisha mlipuko wa watu kupenda kusoma biblia, kujiamini, kila mtu atajiona ni wakili wa siri za Mungu, kila mtu atakuwa macho akikosea anaonywa kwa hekima sio naupole kama biblia inavyosema.ikumbukwe waolokole wengi hawasomi biblia. YESU ALICHANA PAZIA LA HEKALU. Wote tu sawa mbele za Mungu Jehovah
WAUMINI; ‘’Tumieni akili kama ipasavyo, wala msitende dhambi; kwa maana wengine hawamjui Mungu. Nina nena hayo niwafedheheshe’’,1 korinto 15:34.
Kuna mambo ambayo hayahitaji Roho akufunulie unaona kabisa kwa akili hakipo, uliza ueleweshwe, usinung’unike yasije yakakupata kama ya Miriam inawezekana mchungaji yuko sahihi, na wewe hujui, lakini kumbuka lolote afanyalo mchungaji wako lazima liwepo kibiblia na Roho atakugusa, huu mchezo wa kusema nimefunuliwa na Mungu jambo fulani, lazima lithibitishwe kibiblia , ndio uhusiano na kipimo cha biblia ,Roho na mafunuo, ukiona mchungaji wako anashindwa kukujibu, anakwepa, anakuzuia, matatizo tena siyo mchungaji ni wewe!! hama haraka unapoteza muda utaishia kuuondoa na kupoteza utakatifu wako kwa manung’uniko tafuta mchungaji atakayekulea kitakatifu atakaye kukuza wokovu wako, hata ufikie kumtumikia Mungu popote pale na kwa namna yoyote ile, fikiria ni mlokole wa miaka 5 huwezi kufanya lolote.Sisemi tuwe wachungaji maana kuna walio na kansa ya mawazo wanadhani kumtumikia Mungu ni uchungaji tu, hii yote ili ulindwe na andiko kuwa’’ usiguswe’’ hata ukikosea! Na ili kujiweka sawa na kujiimarisha wachungaji wengi wameweka wapelelezi ndani ya waumini wao! Wamekuwa kama serikali za dunia hii, hao wapelelezi wako tayari kusema lolote kulinda maslahi ya wachungaji, na wengi malipo yao ni kupewa uzee wa kanisa au ushemasi hata kama hawajafikia ubora ambao biblia inaousema!
WACHUNGAJI NA WATUMISHI MLIO KWENYE MAMLAKA:’’kwa kusudi la kuwakamilisha watakatifu, hata kazi ya huduma itendeke, hata mwili wa Kristo ujengwe; hata na sisi sote tutakapoufikia umoja wa imani na kumfahamu sana Mwana wa Mungu, hata kuwa mtu mkamilifu, hata kufika kwenye cheo cha kimo cha utimilifu wa Kristo; ili tusiwe tena watoto wachanga, tukitupwa huku na huku, na kuchukuliwa na kila upepo wa elimu, kwa hila ya watu, kwa ujanja, tukizifuata njia za udanganyifu.tLakini tuishike kweli katika upendo na kukua hata tumfikie yeye katika yote, yeye aliye kichwa, Kristo. Katika yeye mwili wote ukiungamanishwa na kushikanishwa kwa msaada wa kila kiungo, kwa kadiri ya utendaji wa kila sehemu moja moja, huukuza mwili upate kujijenga wenyewe katika upendo Efeso 4:12-16.
Wote tuko sawa wote tuna upako wote tunauwezo wa kufanya lolote lile la kiMungu tukielewa na kufundishwa wote tuna Roho, Mungu mmoja, Roho mmoja, ubatizo mmoja, mbingu moja, tuko ndani ya MWILI MMOJA.Hakuna kinga kwa mchungaji mwovu.
