Dear Saints of the Living God – Wishes to you and your family on this Holy Week!
Sometimes i wonder, whether we have taken what happened on the rugged cross, at the foothills of Calvary, very light! It is a symbol of redemption; it is the birthplace of salvation to the mankind; it’s a sanctuary for the lost world; The victory was established over sin and death; it is the bridge to the eternal life… My heart this morning cannot fathom, why the God of this universe will take such a cruel death – it is the most powerful, and unparalleled sacrifice ever made by any deity (meaning, no god has ever done – in the past, nor the present, nor the future).
The world has never seen a phenomenon like this before, nor ever…
Yes, we lost lives yesterday in Brussels – but the Lord of peace will not let the act of terror to win! The Lord will prevail! God never birthed new world order, when there was peace, but always when things are out of control.
Let us look at Isaiah 54, verses 2 and 3, where the Lord is making a perpetual peace with the nation of Israel, which applies to you and me… highly recommend you to read the entire chapter, but we will pick just these 2 verses…
“Enlarge the place of your tent,
And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings;
Do not spare;
Lengthen your cords,
And strengthen your stakes.
For you shall expand to the right and to the left,
And your descendants will inherit the nations,
And make the desolate cities inhabited.”
The plan of redemption, is to give birth to enlarge our territories… when you get a chance to look at the cross, I want you to see it from a different angle.
These 2 verses are talking about a place in our life, where we get pregnant with what God is going to do. Have you seen a pregnant woman? when the doctor confirms that they are pregnant, immediately – at that very moment, their life is changed. They start to eat healthier, so the baby can grow well in their womb. They start to take vitamins, and prepare the room for the arrival of the baby.
About 3 weeks ago, in our prayer time with the leaders of Proverbs226, we prayed for God to do something beyond our natural ability in the prisons that we are entering – and, the Lord responded immediately with the lives being changed in the prison, and in the last 2 weeks, we had 14 Baptisms… the Joy of the Lord was verily present in that room.
He is putting a new skin, and the atmosphere is changing… Just like when Elijah was about to be taken in the thin air, his mantle falls down – which gives birth to the double portion of the power…
Please scroll up, and re-read the verse, again and again, until the Lord shows you, what He is birthing in your life. Chew on these verses, and ask the Lord to show the blueprint. Go to a quiet place and ask the Lord, what He is birthing in your life…
This morning, my prayer for you and me is, that we will venture into the next phase of our life with an expectations, that the Lord will put on our life… as we join in spirit celebrating this Holy week, let the Lord open up the heavens and earth and show His blueprint – for your life.
When you see the cross next time, may the good Lord remind you, that He is birthing a new skin in your life…
At the cross at the cross where I first saw the light
And the burden of my heart rolled away
It was there by faith I received my sight
And now I am happy all the day
Blessing to you on this Blessed week!
