THE REIGN OF THE
LORD IN ZION – The News of Life. Obadiah 21
Table, Watch in the Watchtower, Eat, Drink ...
We invite the honest hearts to reason with us and search out
the matter as to what is the greatest Treasure a Man can get? To do this we
shall involve our Maker in harmony to his call in Isaiah 1:18.
We shall begin with a Wiseman but wisemen speaks in parables!!
“Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a Treasure hid in a
field; the which when a Man has found, he hides, and the Joy thereof goes and
selleth All that he has, and buy that field.” Matt. 13:44
We see how Men in all history are Sacrificing at a great cost to
achieve anything they have set themselves to be a great Treasure!! Some, honors
in titles like hello’s; others, wealth that he can command anything with money;
others, good family; some, big offices like presidency; some, tell us through
writings the great cost it took them, e.g., Mastered seed, some, degrees and
honors in intellectual knowledge, etc. Even a majority, at a great expense of a
fellowman. True, you have heard of worldwide liberators who come and go that in
the following day a new liberator to tell us that the former was not a hello.
Likewise, money makers to dying poor — oh, we remember that during the War in
Rwanda many millionaires with their wealth fled in a whirlwind.
We notice that in all above goals /ambitions, men pay a great
cost to achieve them though for a short time say if you find a professor of
history from a poor family will give you his wonderful Sacrifice — how he
labored 24 hours a day to maintain and achieve his goal!
“Oh, that the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a TREASURE,
hid in a field; …”
Remember, Paul used the same illustration when he spoke of Moses;
who esteemed — “The reproach of Christ greater Riches than the whole Treasure
in Egypt.” Heb. 11:26 Think of the Egypt of that time as having all the
riches of Europe combined with Asia! Then, “Looking unto Jesus, the Author and
finisher of our Faith; Who, for the joy that was set before him, ENDURED THE
CROSS, despising the shame, And is set down at the right hand of the Throne of
God.” Heb. 12:2
Knowing the symbols correctly, the field is the WORLD. Jesus
in his pre-human existence saw a great Treasure in the World. He saw a restored
race in a Millennial Kingdom. (Matt. 6:10) He greatly and joyfully desired to
possess that Treasure, but he had to first buy the “Field.” He must pay the
Ransom price to buy the world of Mankind. It cost him
everything — yes, including
his own life. Phil. 2:7-10 “He made himself of no
reputation and took upon him the form of a Servant, and was made in the likeness
of a Man; …. And became OBEDIENT unto DEATH; Wherefore, God also has exalted
him, and given him a Name which is above every Name…”
Now Jesus has a right to raise the Treasure out of the Pit — to
bring about the Resurrection and Restitution of Mankind. (Acts 3:19-23)
Psalm 135:4, Titus 2:14, Malachi 3:17 and Isaiah 62:3
“The LORD has chosen Jacob for
himself, and Israel for his peculiar TREASURE” Yes, as Spiritual Israel (Church
class), we are the Heirs of these Promises. “Thou shalt also be a Crown
of glory in the hand of the LORD; and a Royal Diadem in the hand of your
Remembering and knowing all the Kingdom Parables like the above,
it refreshes our desires to obtain Joint-Heirship with Christ in his Millennial
Kingdom — A great Treasure indeed. By Mercies of God, we consecrate our
ALL, joyfully to obtain that Treasure (Matt. 16:24, Rom. 12:1) becoming the
Follower of Jesus the Christ.
A sure Treasure:
“In your presence is fullness of Joy; at your right hand are
Pleasures for evermore.” Psalm 16:11
In respect to the incorruptible Joys and Pleasures, we have full
assurance of Faith in the living God and our Lord Jesus Christ — that this is
attainable through their Power!!
AND for you Brother and Sister,
Do you expect to earn or inherit Wealth?
Yes, that cannot be compared to being “Heirs of God and Joint-heir with Christ.”
To one who wills, to take up the cost for this great hidden
Treasure: You need to approach honestly some good questions and seek answers
from the LORD.
We advise that there is only one Way, and Truly that is the Truth
in Christ Jesus whose ultimate ownership of the field belongs. Any other Ways
are untrue like we hear, so and so is the Messenger/prophet of God.
What did Jesus bring on earth?
ANSWER John 1:17
“For the Law was given by Moses, BUT Grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ.”
What is that Grace and TRUTH?
Then what did Jesus tell us that is so special to every Man on earth?
ANSWER John 4:23-24
“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true Worshippers shall worship the
Father in SPIRT and in TRUTH: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.”
And Jesus testified of his own Life in respect to death:
“To this end was I born; and for this cause came I into the world, that I should
bear witness unto the TRUTH!”
Men were disturbed and asked — What is the TRUTH?
Truly, We know the TRUTH; and
any such of the Truth hear us; For we follow the Master. Come forward, join us
in the Narrow way towards that promised Canaan!
Romans 12:1 and by the Mercies of God (James 1:18), we enter into
the School of Christ — following the footsteps of our Elder Brother; Yes, as one
step in the footstep of another, he/she exactly reaches in the same destination;
so it is with those who follow Jesus Christ: — Obtain the exceeding Promises! (2
THE MANIFOLD GRACE OF GOD
We first appreciate the principles at play that anything in
existence owes its existence to the maker. In simple words, the right of
existence is of the maker and subject to the maker’s will. So Man like Flies,
owe their existence to God, and the maker may will each to live for an hour or
two days, and for each creature mentioned would be the highest gift/ favor by
the maker to live such a time. Hence, each would enjoy thankfully the time of
existence and not more as such creature has no right to that as it did not have
any right before its creation!!
In case of Man, he was made by his maker to live for ever (no
time limit, unlike other creatures like flies) subject to conditions of his
making, thus Being obedient to his God and His righteous laws like
feeding on life sustaining trees on Earth. Man failed to appreciate the terms of
his existence as spelled out by his Maker (Heavenly God). This led to his
disobedience (Sin) hence he had to go back to non-existence. This is exactly
what the Just God did and not more (Gen. 3:19)!!!!
The wise God permitted Man to a slow dying process — not instant
but within a day (Adam 930 years); and thus, in this dying process, Adam and Eve
can produce children and fill this Earth (Gen. 1:27-28). At this end Adam
started producing children, but in a sinful condition and imperfection (Psalm
51:5), all destined to eternal death (Rom. 5:12). Was there any hope for Man?
The answer is no, for Justice had condemned Man! In which law he was created!!!
God saw the whole affair and looked at Man! He was moved by
Mercy (the unspeakable love of God) and spoke by an Oath. Hosea 13:14
“I will Ransom them from the power of the grave; I will Redeem
them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O
grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.”
Saving Mankind from Death.
Any saving plan must meet Justice as our God is the God of
justice and just are all his ways. God himself arranged to pay the price so as
to cancel the Eternal death of Mankind and this must be a high price as Justice
states, a life for a life. In the whole mankind, no one could pay this price
(all were born imperfect unlike Adam who sinned when still perfect). Again God
was moved by his love (John 3:16) and sent His own Son to pay the price (die for
Adam) so that Adam and his offspring can live once more. This was executed by
Jesus Christ on the Cross at Calvary. Romans 8:19-21 How great is the
Obedience of Christ unto death which settled Justice — that by the death of his
Soul, ALL or Whoever was born on this earth shall live again. Truly, Jesus is
the living bread from Heaven, and whoever believes on him shall have life
everlasting and abundantly!!
We may rightly (Isaiah 1:18) ask God who arranged and paid this
Ransom: How can the death of Jesus Christ the Man be a life to billions of
People born and dead!
ANSWER: 1 Timothy 2:3-6 KJV
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
Who will have ALL Men to be Saved, and to come to the knowledge
of the Truth. For there is one God, and one Mediator between God and Men,
the Man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a Ransom for ALL, to be testified in due
Yes, that God is a Saviour of ALL Men!!!
How does God save all Men? We ask in harmony to our privilege to
ask Him (Isaiah 1:18, Matt. 7:7)
ANSWER: 1 Corinthians 15:21-22
For since by Man came death, by Man came also the Resurrection
of the dead. For as in Adam ALL die, even so in Christ
shall all be made alive. Praise be to the most high,
What then is the saving through a resurrection? Is it for few or
the Saved? Is this resurrection in Heaven or on Earth? We shall study about it
in future, God willing, BUT
All our early Brethren knew this Truth; that there
will be a Resurrection of ALL People both the holy and unholy as expressed by
them in Acts 24:15.
And hear on Earth as spoken by all holy prophets (Daniel 12:2 and
Isaiah 26:19) — Your dead Men shall live, together with my dead body shall they
arise. Awake and sing, you that dwell in the dust; for your dew is
as the dew of herbs, and the Earth shall cast out the dead in complete
harmony with God’s early statement that actually Man shall return to the dust of
the Earth (Gen. 3:19).
Our friends, if People are resurrected from the dust of the
earth, and this is in complete harmony with God’s declaration that actually
People shall return to the dust of earth; we inquire, where is the source of the
Gospel that such Father/Bishop/Pastor/holy Man, has gone in Heaven at his death?
Yes, this is the same saying “that you will surely not die” and now all of us
know that lie!!! Oh, the Father of lies is at work (John 8:44-45); for even
Jesus at his death did not go to Heaven but to Hell/ dust (Acts 2:31). And as it
were, it seems Lucifer uses much of Christian religious groups (John 8:31-45) to
pursue his original goal!
In our next Publications, the Lord willing, we shall study
about Death itself, How Mankind is saved through a resurrection, and what else
after resurrection. Remember that we are at your Service by the Power of God the
Almighty; and delight
to do the will of God.
EKISA KYA KATONDA EKITAKOMA:
Abantu ba Katonda, tusoka okwetegereza obutonde bwabuli kintu
obanga Ekitonde kyona okutondebwa kyeesimira era kirina obuyinza kukubawo kwakyo.
Tukakasa nti oyo yenna akola ekintu yakimpimira ekisera no’kyokukola, era tulaba
nti Katonda mukutesa kwe nga bwayagala, bweyali akola Omuntu nga bwe yakola

Tulaba nti mubutonde bwO’muntu, yawebwa omukisa nti wakuwangala

ngekyo kitegeza nti Omuntu alinna kusaanawo oba okudda mumbera ngataliwo —
ngabwekyali nga tanatondebwa. Kinno era Katonda kye yategeza omuntu kukuffa kwe
(Olubereberye 3:19) !!!
Katonda nakozesa amagezi ge Omuntu aleke kutondokerawo wabula
affe mpola ngayita mukulwala; kisobozese Omuntu okuzala okujjuza ensi nga
entekateka yakatonda bweyali (Adamu nawangala emyaka 930) — Olubereberye
1:27-28. Kale bwekityo Adamu natandika ezade lye, nayenga Abanna bazalibwa mu
kibi — nga tebatukiride (Zabuli 51:5); Era nga boona Abantu bakufa kuba ekibi
kyakwata bonna (Abarumi 5:12). Waliwo omukissa Abantu okuva mu kuffa? Nedda
kubanga Obwenkanya bwo Muntozi bwatukirira ate nga mwe yakolera Omuntu nge
Katonda na tunulira Omuntu namusasira nga obwenkanya bumulipye
akalipo, nso nga tayinza kwetaguluza nakatonno kukufa!!. Katonda namusasira

“Ndibanunula eri amanyi ag’Amagombe; Ndibagula okuva
eri okufa: Gwe okufa, ebiboonobono byo biri ludawa? Gwe Entaana, okuzikiriza kwo
kuli ludda wa? Okwenenyakwo kulikwekebwa amaso gange!”
Okununula Abantu mu manyi g’Emagombe.
Okununula kunno kulina okutukiriza obwenkanya bwakatonda era
kyavudde agamba nti Ndibagula. Katonda atekateka okugula Abantu okubagya
Emagombe, era omuwendo munene nyo kuba obwekanya busaba/bwagala Obulamu
bwO’muntu bugenda na bulamu bwa Muntu. Mu banna babantu nga temuli ayinza
okuffiririra banne kuba ffena abantu twayonona ate nga mukade waffe Adamu yali
atukiridde nga tanayonona. Awo Katonda alinna okuleta Omuntu nga atukiride —
taliko bbala nakibi kyonna nga Adamu bweyali nga tanayonona!!
Okwagala kwakatonda nekutuyamba: Nawayo Omwanawe omu yekka ajje
atusasulire = nga affa mukiffo kya Adamu okufa (Yokana 3:16). Kinno kya
tukirizibwa Yesu omunazaresi ku musalaba egologosa; Era buli amukiriza abeere no
bulamu obutagwawo emirembe gyonna!! (Abarumi 8:19-21) Amina. Ye, okufa
kwO’muntu Yesu, kwanunula Adamu mumanyi gE’magombe wamu nA’baana be bonna!!
Kale Omubiri no’musayi gwa Yesu ye mmere ddala enamu eyava mu Gulu; Omuntu yenna
agiryako (Amukiiriza) aliba mulamu emirembe ne mirembe gyonna.
Okufa kwO’muntu omu kununula kutya obuwumbi bwA’bantu
Okuddamu: 1 Timusewo 2:3-6
Kino kyekirungi, ekikirizibwa mumaso go Mulokozi waffe Katonda;
Alileta abantu bonna okulokolebwa, era no kujja okumanya Amazima (kivudde

nA’bantu omu, Omuntu Kristo Yesu; Eyewayo abe omutango olwa bonna, ekinatukirira
mu ntuko zakyo.
Nti Katonda ye Mulokozi wA’bantu bonna!!!
Tubuza Katonda engeri gyalokola Abantu bonna! Nga tukozessa
olukusa lwe yatuwa (Isaya 1:18, Matayo 7:7).
OKUDDAMU: 1 Abakolinso 15:21-22
Kubanga okufa bwe kwabaawo olwo muntu, era nO’kuzukira
kwabafu kwabaawo ku bwa muntu. Kuba bonna nga bwe baafiira mu Adamu, era bwe

Kale oba nga Abantu bonna banunulibwa okva mu manyi gemagombe,

Baganda baffe abatusoka bali bamanyi kinno kye tukakasa nobulamu

Katonda bwe bakakasa mu byawandikibwa (Daniyeri 12:2, Isaaya 26:19): Abantu
bonna abaafa bakubera balamu, wamu no’mulambo gwomubiri bwange ba kuzuukira.
Muzuukuke muyimbe, mwe abeebaka mu nfuufu yensi: kubanga omusulo

Banno bonna bakakasa Katonda kye yagamba Adamu ne mukaziwe Eva mu

Okusanawo kwo Muntu (Olubereberye 3:19).
Owoluganda, oba abafa badda muttaka, wegendereze enjiri yo’mulabe

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