Shiloh Baptist Church building

Beloved in the Lord.

17/08/2018

Greetings in Jesus name.

Your prayers are hereby being greatly appreciated. Until thus far we say Ebenezer. He has been so good to us. started the entire building without enough cash in our Fellowship Coffers, Shiloh Baptist Church. We had to sell winter water bottles that can be recharged to people as fund raising for the building. We bought these winter hot bottles that are rechargeable from Johannesburg and started selling them to our community. The miracle of the Father happened that these water skin bottles were sold like hot cakes and we so ourselves being able to carry the work of this building forward. We are still selling them as they are re-usable for next Winter season, they are also massaging people against RAMATIKI join problems because of having worked in cold areas and used cold water in the past.

 

Would you please continue to pray for us for the completion of this project. We are almost 80% near completion. You can contact the Treasurer for any financial assistance @ 0609888083 being Mrs. Thukgwi Lovedalia and she will be glad to assist you with the bank details of the Church for the building. We need at least R25,000.00 to complete the remaining work respectively.

 

Thanks for your help in anticipation.

 

Be forever blessed.

MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN By Pastor John Sigudla

12/08/2018

MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN

By Pastor John Sigudla

    • The calling of god has been extended to all the people on earth. We are called from utter darkness to the marvelous light of the Almighty God.
  • We called to be obedient to our creator.
  • We are called to be the light of the world.
  • We are called to be the salt of the world.
  • We are called to represent God wherever we go and are working.
  • We are called to be the ambassadors of Christ in our communities.
  • We are called to take care of our neighbours through our God given lives.
    • BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN.
  • This is an extra-mile of God’s choice in the life of a person.
  • Here we see people who leaves everything and serve God full time in their ministries that God has called them to do.
  • Here we find full time workers for God such as pastors, evangelist, prophets, apostles and Teachers of the Word.
  • This is the most difficult task to be in the hand of God full time. Not all are called and chosen in this category. Hence the lesson here below.
  • Others are calling themselves in this very difficult God’s work, and I called them SAP’s Self-Appointed Pastors, Self-Appointed Prophets, Self-Appointed Priests, while others are Self Appointed Bishops, SAB.

 

 

  1. TWO MESSENGERS WHO TOOK THE MESSAGE TO DAVID AFTER THE DEATH OF ABSALOM.

One was Chosen and the other called himself.

2 SAMUEL 18:19-35

 

19Then Zadok’s son Ahimaaz said, “Let me run to the king with the good news that the LORD has saved him from his enemy Absalom.” 20“No,” Joab told him, “It wouldn’t be good news to the king that his son is dead. You can be my messenger some other time, but not today.” Sam 18: 19-20

 

THE APPLICATION OF THIS STORY

  1. Ahimaaz self-appointed messenger
  • Ahimaaz was not called, he called himself. Verse 19.
  • Ahimaaz was stopped from his calling to take the so called Good news to David. Verse 2.
  • He was not thrown away that he cannot be a messenger, but he was told that not now. Verse 20.
  • He ignored the secret and power of waiting or patience. He wanted to serve during his own time and not the appointed time according to the divine appointment.
  • One man was called by God and he said to God “Not now, I am still busy working and later on I will respond. He indeed responded and bought a big tent and instruments and went out preaching and nothing happened. Then he asked God why nothing is happening and God said to him “You responded at your own time and not at God’s appointed time.”

 

  1. THE MAN FROM CUSH [ETHIOPIA] DIVINELY APPOINTED MESSENGER.

 

21Then Joab said to a man from Cush, “Go tell the king what you have seen.” The man bowed and ran off. 22But Ahimaaz continued to plead with Joab, “Whatever happens, please let me go, too.” “Why should you go, my son?” Joab replied. “There will be no reward for you.” 23“Yes, but let me go anyway,” he begged. Joab finally said, “All right, go ahead.” Then Ahimaaz took a shortcut across the plain of the Jordan and got to Mahanaim ahead of the man from Cush. 2 Samuel 20: 21-24

  • When the man from Cush was sent he responded immediately. Verse 21
  • This man had no name, he was called the man from Cush. Cush stands for Africa. He was a man from Africa, who took the message to David the King and not a man from Israel Ahimaaz.
  • God has his own way of doing things beyond our own understanding.
  • The man from Cush bowed down and ran off. Verse 21. We need to run when God calls us and sent us out to serve him. We don’t have to drag our legs when God sent us, but we need to run, criminals are running, bad people of all types are running in order to fulfil their bad intentions, witches are not even running, they are flying using any means of airplanes to fulfil their darkness assignment given to them.
  • The man from Cush ran with the clear message, that Absalom is dead.
  • Ahimaaz insisted that he wanted to go too, verse 22.
  • Ahimaaz was told that there was no reward for him to go there. Verse 22.
  • Ahimaaz admitted that there was no reward for him but still he wanted to go. Verse 23.
  • Ahimaaz was eventually allowed to go on his own accord and not as supposed to be. Verse 23.
  • Ahimaaz since he know that the man of Cush was almost half way, he took a short cut to the place where the message was supposed to be taken.
  • Let us by all means avoid serving God through short cuts.
  • Ministries started yesterday and they took short cuts and they seem to be flourishing and you go there.
  • The work of the Lord need patience and process.
  • God is interested in our character building rather than our eloquence, talent and gifting. They are all needed but the godly character is what is needed.
  • Because of the short cut he took, he arrived first and started giving the message that was not clear. Verse

29“What about young Absalom?” the king demanded. “Is he all right?” Ahimaaz replied, “When Joab told me to come, there was a lot of commotion. But I didn’t know what was   happening.” 30“Wait here,” the king told him.

  1. Conclusion

Ask God to call you to serve him by serving your pastor through prayer and many other ways that I cannot specify, only the Holy Spirit can specify those tasks for you.

  • The Holy Spirit has already given you the way you need to be supportive to the work of the Lord in your local church.
  • The Holy Spirit is not quite about what we are supposed to be doing for him in a local church.
  • Ministry amongst the elderly is a very serious ministry for the elderly to die in the Lord.
  • Ministry amongst the youth is a very important ministry and in big churches in South Africa and Europe, they have full time pastors in this position.
  • Ministry amongst our children is very important as I saw yesterday how the children ministry unfolded with great results, thus Boipelo keep up the good work and may others join you.
  • Music ministry that goes with praise and worship is a very important part of the church ministry that deals with spiritual war-fare. Thus worship team you are doing excellently very well.

THE SECRET OF DAVID IN HIS LEADERSHIP By Rev V.J. Sigudla

23Joab once again became the commander of David’s army. Benaiah son of Jehoiada was commander of the king’s bodyguard. 24Adoniram was in charge of the labor force. Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud was the royal historian. 25Sheva was the court secretary. Zadok and Abiathar were the priests. 26Ira the Jairite was David’s personal priest. 2 Samuel 20:23-26

David the man after God’s heart. It is very important to understand why God called him “The man after God’s heart” it was not himself who called himself “The man after God’s heart”

You don’t have to call yourself by titles but let the people see who you are and be the ones who calls you by titles.

  1. The secret of David’s successful leadership.
  • He appointed people into positions of power to help him with the great work ahead of him.
  • Joab was appointed the commander of David’s army. Verse 23
  • Benaiah son of Jehoiada was the commander of the king’s body guard.
  • Adoniram was in charge of the labour force.
  • Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud was the royal historian.
  • Sheva was the court secretary.
  • Zadok and Abiathar were the priests, general priests for all the army and people of Israel.
  • Ira the Jaitrite was David’s personal priest. This one’s work was to pray and advice king David in the spiritual things regarding his service for the Lord. Kings were supposed to please God at all costs. Hence the personal priest for David.
  1. WE NEED PRAYER PARTNERS WHO WILL SERVE US THROUGH PRAYER.
  • Pastors and servants of God need people who will minister to them through prayers, and spiritual advice. For people to qualify to do such a high calling they need to qualify and be fully appointed by god in the lives of the servants of God. Not every Christian can be able to do this high calling. The high calling involves the following:
  • Regularly praying for your pastor wherever you are, no need to go to the pastor and pray over him or her.
  • Regularly serving your pastor by going where he sent you to go for him in his work such as visiting some members on behalf of the pastor.
  • Regularly listen to God for divine revelation that you need to quantify before you can tell them to the pastor. You become Nathan who was used by God to speak to David and David trusted Nathan that is why he listened to Nathan when he was speaking to him.
  • You too, as a spoke person of God, you need to have a good attitude and good approach to the servant of God. He must have full trust in you and respect of the highest order.
  • Elishah literally served Elijah

Elisha accepted this call about four years before the death of Israel’s King Ahab. For the next seven or eight years Elisha became Elijah’s close attendant until Elijah was taken up into heaven.

Elisha was appointed by Elijah as his successor and had been his attendant for six years. Elijah served as head prophet, and Elisha worked closely with him, being known as the one who “poured out water upon the hands of Elijah” when Elijah washed his hands.—2Ki 2:3-5; 3:11. 

  • It is indeed a privilege to serve servants of God, and you don’t have to overdo it, do as the spirit lead.
  • You can serve also by taking care of the pastor’s children while they are out shopping.
  • The most high calling to serve your pastor is to pray for him daily and intercede for them greatly so that they should not take short cuts in serving God.
  1. TWO MESSENGERS WHO TOOK THE MESSAGE TO DAVID AFTER THE DEATH OF ABSALOM.

One was called and the other called himself.

IN YOUR DESPERATION SITUATION, DON’T FALL INTO THE HANDS OF PEOPLE. Bread of life Devotional thought By Pastor Vusimusi John Sigudla

desperate

14“This is a desperate situation!” David replied to Gad. “But let us fall into the hands of the LORD, for his mercy is great. Do not let me fall into human hands.” 2 SAMUEL 23:14

 

  1. INTRODUCTION.

Truly David blundered and deserved to be punished by God. The choice as usual our God gives to his love ones since he need to punish us as his children because of love. The choice God give to us is because we have a will that God has given us that we need to use to make choices in life either for good or for bad. God is not prepared to remote control us.

  1. David’s blunder [mistake] went with some serious consequences.

I am responsible and accountable for any decision and action I take. I need to answer for any action I take either for good or for bad. This was indeed the case with David.

  • He was warned first by Joab not to execute the censures but he didn’t want to listen.
  • The danger of not listening causes more harm than good.
  • David had to be confronted with three choices to make as a punishment and all three choices where extremely difficult. None of them was better than the other.

13So Gad came to David and asked him, “Will you choose three years of famine throughout the land, three months of fleeing from your enemies, or three days of severe plague throughout your land? Think this over and let me know what answer to give the LORD.”2 Samuel 23:13

  • Famine for three years, how many people were going to lose their lives in the three years?
  • Three months if fleeing from your enemies. David had already experienced fleeing from enemies, the worse was from his own son Absalom bare footed. He also experienced fleeing from King Saul who wanted to kill him. Therefore David was tired and old to start all over again in his old age to run away from his enemies, enemies that were not even specified who they were going to be.
  • In life we have many enemies, merciless enemies and missiles enemies that care less about us. Both merciless and missiles enemies are most dangerous.
  • David was tired to start all over again running away from these enemies he never knew who they were going to be.
  • Three days of severe plague [illness outbreak that no one knows, pandemic, severe unknown illness, and infection] throughout your land.
  • Just imagine people dying doctors failing to know the kind of diseases, people falling down at work dead. People falling down driving and lose their lives. Accidents that will take place of people being killed by diseases that they never knew before. Schools being closed because teachers are ill and children are also affected by many illnesses, chaos after chaos will be the order of the day.
  1. DAVID’S CHOICE.

None of the three was chosen by David since none of the three was better than the other.

David just said 14“This is a desperate situation!” David replied to Gad. “But let us fall into the hands of the LORD, for his mercy is great. Do not let me fall into human hands.” 2 SAMUEL 23:14

 

  • This is indeed a desperate situation.
  • Desperate situation is a situation beyond human comprehension
  • Desperation situation is a situation that cannot be easily solved.
  • Desperation situation is a situation that everybody run away from.
  • Desperation situation is a situation that has reached a boiling point.
    • Then David chose to fall into the hands of the Lord , for one firm reason, “ For his mercy is Great”
    • David cried out and prayed not to fall into humans hands.
  • Batho ga ba siama and are very cruel.
  • He chose to be in the hands of God rather than be in the hands of the people.
  • In our desperation situation, stay in the hands of God rather in the hands of the people.
  • People are merciless and full of revenge.
  • People are all out to destroy you, but God is there to rebuild you.
  • People are all out to show you how useless you are, but God is all out to protect and fight for you. Psalm 121: 1-8

The cry and the choice of David was never over looked by God.

The same God of David is here to take care of our petitions and cry and our humiliation by this world and make us what we are supposed to be. Let us fall in the hands of our Almighty God rather than falling in the hands of the people.

YOUR CONDITION IS NOT OF YOUR DOINGS. YOU WERE NOT BORN CRIPPLE By Pastor Vusimusi John Sigudla

Date: 08/07/2018

4(Saul’s son Jonathan had a son named Mephibosheth, who was crippled as a child. He was five years old when Saul and Jonathan were killed at the battle of Jezreel. When news of the battle reached the capital, the child’s nurse grabbed him and fled. But she fell and dropped him as she was running, and he became crippled as a result.)

 

2 Samuel 4:4

Some of us are suffering because of other people who inflicted that suffering upon us. We are crying and regretting because of other people who found us happy and took away happiness from us. They found us rejoicing and they took away the joy from us. Those people who did that were not strangers, but very close friends, family members, trusted community leaders, our own doctors and nurses that we dedicated our entire lives in their hands with a hope that they are the right people for our survival.

Little did we know that we have trusted on wrong people!!!

 

  1. The nurse and Mephibosheth.
    • The fast life that we are living today is creating very difficult situation for us for the future. Less percentage of parents are rising their children up. Most of our children are being raised by people we so much trust because we are so busy making money.

 

Mostly these last days, most of the nannies are from Lesotho, most of them with their different background. They are here indeed looking for greener pastures, some have children back home thus they are working for those kids. They know how to bring up kids since they have kids of their own. Some are single without any experience of brining children up, they are busy learning to do so with your children, we have time and again seen on media how kids are being abused by those that are looking after them, severely being beaten some were beaten to death. If you don’t believe me go to the police stations around South Africa, America and the UK and find out why those ladies are under arrest. The answer that you will be given is, they have abused children they were hired to take care of and some of them have even killed those kids.

 

They were born in a very good family these kids, with great expectations from their parents.

Some of these kids born came as a miracle from God and they needed a perfect upbringing since the parents requested them from God through much prayers, but the economic situation of South Africa, has tempted us to move away from taking care of these kids ourselves and we trusted an outside third party to take care of our little ones. This is exactly what happened with Mephibosheth.

  • The nurse of Mephibosheth
  • I fully agree and believe and concur that she was a trusted someone.
  • Some of the things that happens to us and our children are not intentional, they are an accident. But any accident that happened caused by someone, it carries with it lot of regrets. One would say, if I was driving that car, maybe I might have avoided the accident, but since the vehicle was driven by someone else, it is not easy to accept what happened.
  • Some in a home situation, if one party can be involved in a car accident, the husband would say, if I was there, this accident wouldn’t have happened. This is humanly speaking as we think that some are better than others.
  • The nurse was hired to take care of the boy and not to abuse the boy, and that was exactly what this nurse vowed to do and was doing.
  • The boy was relaxed since he knew the nurse being a very caring someone. He ate from her hands, he was washed by this nurse, he was woken up by this nurse, he was carried on the back by the nurse. The first voice the boy would hear was the voice of this nurse. The last voice that the boy would hear was the voice of this nurse.
  • All these home chore, translated into a deeper trust and bond between the boy and the nurse. There was absolutely no sign of danger from the nurse care to the boy. All was well until the sad moment that befell this family when almost all the members of the family died in the battle.
  • Your friend is a friend indeed and he has been caring so much to you.
  • Your husband is indeed a loving person, but what happened to many wives and girls friends when bad times surfaced? Wives were gun down by the same loving husband. Girls lost their lives in the hands of these loving boyfriends.
    • We definitely need a safe haven [place]
  • Where every one of us will be assured of safety in the presence of any situation.
  • The nurse never planned to destroy or to cripple this boy. It was not her intention at all, most unfortunately it happened in her hands.
  • The boy was relaxed and the nurse was in fact trying to save the life of this boy when the terror struck.
  • Churches are there to take care of our journey to heaven.
  • Pastors are there to guide us on our way to heaven and not to abuse us and cripple us spiritually. How many fallen believers we are having because of pastors who are our spiritual nurses? Countless believers are hurting and some have completely lost hope in the saving power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • May we open our eyes and have a spirit of discernment and see things afar that can be a danger to our faith before it is too late.
  • Would you please be a spiritual nurse of yourself and avoid to blame others for your downfall tomorrow. God has given you an excellent Spirit that cries within you Abba Father!!!!
  • Would you please obey that Spirit and work according to that Spirit as to avoid any danger that want to cripple you as a child of God like Mephibosheth!!! Don’t allow yourself to be destroyed intentionally by others who appears as spiritual nurses to you.
  • Be very careful and take responsibility upon yourself, heaven is for us all, stop listen to these false prophets who are telling you that your pastor is jealous because of the gift that is upon you.
  • One false prophet was selling golden tickets to his congregation and the people at large for $500.00 to go to heaven claiming that Jesus gave him those tickets to sell to everyone who want to go to heaven. $500.00 is equivalent to almost R7000.00 to go to heaven. That is very cheap and I remain living in sin.
  1. Application in our lives and conclusion.
  • Those people that are hurting you, you have allowed them to hurt you.
  • It is high time to take care of yourself spiritually, live a life of prayer. Live a life of studying God’s Word, live a life of fellowshipping with other Christians. Fulfil the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ by telling the people about the love of God that is found in Jesus Christ our Saviour.
  • Stop playing be serious about the things of the house of the Lord.
  • Choose right friends and those who will love you for what you are not for what you have.
  • Stop playing Christianity, be a genuine Christian and start supporting the vision of your pastor.
  • Stop listen to lies being spread by the agencies of the evil one which are dispatched to each and every Church of Christ. Their duties is to destabilize what God is doing in these churches. They have a mission, they were once genuine Christians just like the angels that were ones serving God in heaven.
  • Lucifer which is the devil was a choir master in heaven, until pride was found in him in the book of Ezekiel.
  • YOU WERE not born a cripple but someone crippled you, mentally, physically, spiritually, socially and emotionally.
  • Your duty is to find out who crippled you and love him and come to Jesus he has all the power to restore.
  • Mephibosheth was restored to a kingship position by David.
  • A second chance was given to Mephibosheth to can come back and be served as much as he wanted.
  • Mephibosheth just humbled himself and never blamed his ‘crippleness’ when opportunity availed itself.
  • Stop blaming others, Jesus is coming and let us all go home and depart from this evil world that is full of lies and fake pastors, fake prophets, fake evangelists, fake gospels, fake marriages, fake brothers and fake sisters, fake everything.

Open your eyes and look to heaven, “looking unto Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith”

WE ARE FULLY SECURED IN GOD

ZACHARIAH 1:8-11

8In a vision during the night, I saw a man sitting on a red horse that was

standing among some myrtle trees in a small valley. Behind him were red, brown, and white horses, each with its own rider. 9I asked the angel who was talking with me, “My lord, what are all those horses for?” “I will show you,” the angel replied. 10So the man standing among the myrtle trees explained, “They are the ones the LORD has sent out to patrol the earth.” 11Then the other riders reported to the angel of the LORD, who was standing among the myrtle trees, “We have patrolled the earth, and the whole earth is at peace.”

SHOCKING REVELATION

  1. God has never left the earth unattended. Verse 8
  2. In a vision Zachariah saw a man sitting on a red horse. Verse 8
  3. Behind him were red, brown and white horses each with its own rider. Verse 8
  4. A question was asked about the purpose of these horses. Verse 9
  5. They are the horses the Lord has sent out to patrol the earth. Verse 10
  6. These riders on these horses are doing their work, listen to the answer or report, “We have patrolled the earth, and the whole earth is at peace”

My observations.

  • Surely we are under a severe care from above. I believe God is taking care of his children wherever they go. When driving, these invisible houses are there alongside you, taking care of all the danger approaching us.
  • When sleeping, these horses are outside our houses checking for any attacking spirits from the evil one.
  • When going to work, you are not alone, but God has sent his horses, guardian Angels, the Holy Spirit whispering in our hearts, the precious blood of Jesus coverage against any attack from the evil one, Jesus himself who said “Behold, I am with you until the end of the age” Matthew 28:20. This is the assurance of our safely in God, therefore there is no need for any physical tangible means of mediums, such as oil, water, bracelets you name them to take care of you. You are fully covered beyond measure and enjoy that covering from God without any fear.

Be forever Blessed.

THE COMPELLING PASSION FOR DISCIPLESHIP

3“It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered.

“He was born blind so the power of God could be seen in him. 4All of us

must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent me, because there is little time left before the night falls and all work comes to an end.

John 9;

 

  1. Introduction                                                                                                                Indeed each and every Christian has been called by God to fulfil certain ministry    in the Kingdom of God. No one is a freelancer but we all called to fulfill an    assignment in this very same world before we leave this world.
  2. Your assignment is unique
  • God cannot give you something which is too difficult for you to fulfil. When the talents were distributed, the three recipients were given according to their abilities, one was given 5, and the other was given 3 while the last was given only one talent.
  • The first two used their God given abilities to increase what they were “given”. They never gave themselves, but they were given. When you are given, you become the custodian of what has been given to you. That which has been given to you will not be a burden since it was dispatched with the full consideration of your abilities, thus it is your exact weight for what you can handle.
  • The last person, played and never increased his share and had excuses which were not acceptable to God. His end was horrible. Hope this is not what is going to happen to some of us given the opportunity to serve our God wherever you are.
  1. What is needed in serving the Master?

All of us must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent me, because there is little time left before the night falls and all work comes to an end.

  • Verse number 4 reflect what has been given to us. “All of us must quickly carry out”
  • Not some of us, but all of us must quickly carry out the tasks assigned to us by God.
  • I see no excuse at all, since we are all assigned, thus the secret is to know your assignment. We are delayed and destroyed by lack of knowing what our assignments are.
  1. The danger surrounding us.
  • According to the scripture, verse 4, there is little time left.
  • Please don’t allow other people further to delay you in your assignment.
  • God is not going to excuse you and not punish you since people will be a reason for you having failed to fulfil your assignment.
  • When the night fall and the work will cease or come to an end and many of us will be crying to God asking for an extension of our assignment submission and it will be too late.

5.Conclusion

That is the reason why I am all out with my God given assignment of discipleship in my old age. I fully believe and I am convinced that you too do have a special and unique assignment given to you by God at this point and time. May we be faithful in pleasing God rather than pleasing our delayers!!!!

You need that passion to fulfil that which is burning you within your soul.

 

Shalom
