The Mpoli Journal



James 1:27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world
I have been in the office for the better part of the day and my body feels tired and I know l cannot go home yet until l have seen these kids who have become so dear to us. As l approach the open gate to the care point, I have such energy from within that comes out as the kids race towards me.
 After a couple of laughter and running up and down with some kids, I am just happy and grateful to be part of this great vision of fulfilling the Word of God as a pastor. I attend to some basic responsibilities just to make sure all is well and l am given an update of what is urgently needed at the care point.
As the kids play on the grounds of a place they now call home, a place of Hope, a place of provision, love and where dreams are shaped and Christ is at the center of all that is said and done, one cannot begin to imagine what the future holds for these precious children outside Christ.
These young souls are treasured by Heaven and so must we as a Body of Christ.  At any given time and day these children will brighten your day and leave you with a sense joy just as you observe them and interact with them.
As I finally take a seat trying to catch a breath l am reminded within my spirit that this is the future of Swaziland and to have an opportunity to sharp their destiny is both an honor and a great responsibility.
 As the Word Of God puts it “To defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; to maintain the rights of poor and oppressed” (Psalms 82:3). Everything within who I am will defend these little ones from a spiritual front to the natural realm.
I just read in our local paper this week on two heart breaking stories of child abuse and such evil must be stopped at all cost. It is so easy to read such and like any other story in the paper for the day and move on with life. God expects us to defend the cause of the weak and fatherless and l heaven must count me in as one of those prepared to do just that in our generation.
As I prepare to leave I am so glad that these kids just had a meal at the care point and tonight l can sleep knowing that the children are not tossing fro and to because of hunger. THANK YOU all who make this a reality.

Church Profile

1.1 Overview

Manzini Christian Community Church (MC3) is one of the few evolutionary churches in Swaziland aggressively confronting contemporary social ailments.  Though the church plant was started a couple of years ago, it had to be halted till the Lord prayerfully brought more technical/contemporary people who would fully embrace the vision. And as of mid 2011, the church has been fully engaged in discipleship, leadership development and as a result we are ready to conquer the city/nation for Jesus Christ through structured, disciplined skilled contextual evangelism.

1.2    The Congregation

Manzini Christian Community Church, known lovingly as MC3, is a growing body of believers located in the city of Manzini, Swaziland. The committed group of young African singles, professionals and families celebrate weekly alongside community members brought to Swaziland from throughout the world. Their vision is two fold: embrace the present transformational power of Christ’s Love and empower future generations of Swazi’s to continue building His Kingdom in Manzini and beyond. MC3 is shepherded by Pastor Jim Machuku and currently meets in a rented conference facility  within the urban center of Manzini. Its members are progressive and forward thinking; they project a positive vision for Swaziland and seek to shine brightly in the community

SEEING, SEIZING AND SEALING OUR PROMISES

God commissioned me to minister a simple message of faith, hope and love. A message to awaken the Body of Christ to the realization of the potential God has put in us to walk into the reality of our God given visions and dreams.

Luke 13:10-17. This woman that had an encounter with Jesus was a ordinary member of the church. Loving the Word and faithfully attending services but something was amiss just like in most of us as church members.
The Bible says she was bent down and couldn’t look up in the natural. I believe that this also helps us to understand that we tend to be bent over in the spiritual and can’t see the Word eye to eye. She heard the Law taught but nothing happened until Jesus the reality of the law showed up spoke Himself in the life of this woman.

It was as though Jesus is teaching and saying “Do not just listen to the law but look upward in the Spirit and see your promise of healing and deliverance standing before you”
Therefore it is essential that firstly, YOU MUST SEE YOUR PROMISE.
Jeremiah 1:12 “Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert {and} active, watching over My word to perform it.” Our ability to see the Word when it is spoken determines how quicker it comes to pass in our lives. When we see right in the Word, our lives become right. God expects for you and me to see something in the Word concerning our situation. But for one to see, one must have an ear to hear according to the principles of the Word. It is equally vital that YOU MUST HEAR INORDER TO SEE.

Romans 10:17 –“ So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself)”. Our faith must be based on the Word and without is it is impossible to please God.
In 2010, Lift up yourself and see your promises in God’s Word concerncing your marriage, business, relationships, educational life, healing and restoration in Jesus Name.

Secondly, from the this passage of scripture in Luke 13:12 And when Jesus saw her, He called [her to Him] and said to her, Woman, you are released from your infirmity! SEIZE YOUR PROMISE . And you do this by ALIGNINIG YOURSELF TO THE WORD. Jesus called this woman to Himself. The Word is calling us to life and a greater destiny. We do not call ourselves But He call us and all we do is to align our lives with His Word. He draws us to Himself through the power of His love. And there must be a willingness from our part to draw near to God and will drawn nearer.

Finally, in Luke 13:13 “Then He laid [His] hands on her, and instantly she was made straight, and she recognized {and} thanked {and} praised God”, YOU MUST SEAL YOUR PROMISE BY PRAISE AND WORSHIP. There are times we have prayed and fasted and claimed the promises of God and nothing seem to happen. It is time to seal your prayers and fasting with praise and Worship. Your high praises determine your higher places of life you travel.
Praise and worship does not bring God in our situation but instead God is manifested in our situation. Remember God is everywhere even though we might not sense Him at times but He is Here always. In praise and worship “we” manifest His presence around us for lack of a better way of putting it.

1 Cor 1:9 God is faithful (reliable, trustworthy, and therefore ever true to His promise, and He can be depended on); by Him you were called into companionship {and} participation with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
