Lusaka Youth Tells Zambians ‘It Does Not Pay To Continue Living In Sin. Repent!’

Mark Mambwe Chatupa
Most people in Zambia and world over when you ask them how they were saved, they will tell you they were in church, and the worship leader called those who had not accepted Christ for their life yet, to come up to the podium to be saved. But are you really truly saved just because a church leader said so? Are you really saved just because you believe? Salvation usually comes upon us accidentally because of your timing being right with God’s timing for you, and that timing may not be while you are in church.
Technically speaking we are saved when we believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior, but what is our heart and mind telling us? What are we doing with our belief? Do we have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Do we feel that we are a part of God’s family here on earth? To be saved we must repent, feel sorrow for our sins and be willing to turn our life around.
This is how the life of a 22 year old Final Year Bsc. Comp Science student of Cavendish University, Mark Mambwe Chatupa was turned around. A first born in the family of two raised by a single mother in Luanshya on the Copperbelt Province of Zambia. He was born in a Christian family who’s Mum always made sure that his children knew God and working hard in school.
Mark Mambwe Chatupa started his primary school in 1997 at Mpelembe Primary School in Luanshya from Grades 1 to 7, and then 2005-2008 went to Luanshya boys high school and now at Cavendish University in his final year.
Mark says “Like the bible says in Proverbs 22vs6 ‘Teach a child in a way that when he grows up he shall never depart from it. Parents out there speak good upon your family. I grew up a God fearing child but double minded. I never knew God at that level because I never used to read the bible and pray, the only prayers I would pray was when we were about to start eating and going to bed. The prayers I used to pray were all about me. Yes I used to drink beer but the first time I drunk beer was when I completed my grade 12 in 2008 and I was hiding the alcohol in a Pepsi Cain bottle. 2010 was a year I really messed up and a lot of wrong decisions were made. “
Asked on what made him follow Jesus, Mark narrates “Many people think being a Christian is boring but that’s a lie from the devil deceiving people. Being a Christian is fun. What made me follow Jesus, I was tired living in worldly things because it was leading me to hell and hence I decided to follow Jesus because in him I found peace and that’s were I belong. And when I read the testimony about Angelica a girl who was shown the kingdom of hell and heaven, my understanding about God changed and the Lord Jesus Christ began to change my life. I began reading the bible, praying and loving to go to church.”

Asked on how he views life now and when he was in the world, Mark says ”I got fully saved in 2011. My life in Christ is the best at peace than in the world. And right now when I pray for the sick they get healed and possessed get free by the grace of God almighty. Am loving my life now. Thanks to Jesus”
His Advise to youths and elders alike in Zambia who are not yet born again Christians, Mark advise: “The advice I can give to the youths and elders is that hell is real and if you not yet save you are heading to hell, time for you to repent is now and that Jesus loves you.”
On what he thinks is destroying the majority youth in Zambia, he says Alcohol, Sex and Drugs. “The bible in Galatians 5vs16 says the acts of the sinful nature are obvious:
Sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies and the like. I warn you as I did before, that those like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
How his friends received his born again status, he says “It was hard for my friends to believe and accept that I have changed and reformed, and they were thinking. It’s just one of those things. And they were thinking I was going to go back to my older life. But now they have gotten used to it. Praise God!!!!”

Today’s Message from Mark
“Sex is allowed by God but only to married people, now the fact that it is only allowed after marriage the devil begins to attack those that are not married with the spirit of immorality.
Mostly our habit invites these spirits, now the devil is attacking people even through media. People are busy going on the net to download pornographic materials. These spirits will make you think you are doing the right, then later in marriage they begin to attack you, it’s sad a lot of marriages today are broken because of this spirit.
Immorality is not only attacking unmarried people, even those that are married. Mostly you would hear a husband sleeps with the other woman. Mostly husband and wife spirits comes in our lives through sex intercourse before marriage.
Being attached to such Habits its putting your own life at risk, any spirit sent buy the devil can kill, steal and destroy (John10vs10). The devil will make you sleep with the person and later that person rejects you, after rejecting you the will send the spirit of suicide.
The things we do are mostly the source of demonic attacks in our lives. When other are busy reading the word (Bible) you are busy reading pornographic magazines and watching pornographic movies. Even Christian cannot change their habit towards reading and watching ungodly things. Such movies and Magazines are accompanied with evil spirits, such that your mind won’t stop thinking about what you were reading or watching, those spirits will make you to begin desiring what you were watching. The demons will make sure they put in your mind lustful thoughts such that when you just look at a woman you think of having sex with her and with God that is sinning through your mind.().
Everything that is not of God it’s of the devil, if what you do does not please God then it pleases the Satan.
When you commit adultery or fornicate, you worship the devil, because worshiping the devil is not just going to him and bow down but by doing anything that pleases him. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit; never sell the temple of Gog with the satisfaction of the fresh. Avoid sex before marriage all else you will be used us fire wood in Hell.(1 Thessalonians4vs3-5).”

    this is wonderful and very encouraging…its funny how most of us take this life and God for granted..those of us who know the word must strive to keep our names in the book of life..and as for ba youth, lets keep away from sex and alcohol, its not worth it, you will miss your blessings and break throughs..

  24. Pido   June 28, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    It is indeed encouraging to see young men coming to Christ. But it is so saddening to see others make jokes like in the time of Noah. The day is coming yes it is when every man young or old shall give account of their action to Jesus.

    Remember it is appointed unto every man to die and letter judgement. Girls, bear and what ever there is that keeps man a way from God shall soon pass away and the judgement shall stand.

  25. oxmos   July 1, 2012 at 2:00 pm

  28. Mum   July 20, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    I wish our youths should analyse this article. One thing you have to know is the Lord
    Jesus came that you may have life not ordinary life but abundant life ….. Good life, happy life a fulfilled life. If a lot of negatives are surrounding your life, stop and rethink the young man……….my son Mark is going far. Hold on there Mark God never fails!

  29. Mark   July 26, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    Let no one or evil come close to you may you be sorrounded with the holy gost fire of God.
    Be blessed. and remember that you are now the bible of the world each and everyone will be reading you and every step you take. Speak the word speak scripture so that they can flee from you. stand strong on the word of God. Be careful with your so called best freind. Devil can use them to bring you down. Stand strond and be the doer of the word nothing is impossible with God all is possible to those who belive and trust in God.
    am encouranged too.

    Take all live it this is good material especially that it is coming from a youth. If you think this is boring one day you will look for this material and you will not find it bcoz there will be no time for such and remember it is appointed for a man to die and after that the judgement remember dear friends all us one day we will give an account of how we lived our lives. for sure hell is real repent and be born again.
