Holy Week & Easter,  The Eight Days that changed the World.

Palm Sunday, First Day of Week, Jesus enters Jerusalem on a donkey fulfilling an ancient prophecy. Zechariah 9:9. Welcome Jesus with the words of Psalm 118:25-26, heralding Him as the Messiah, the coming King of Israel. Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11;1-11, Luke 19:28-44, John 12:1-11

Monday, Jesus returns to the Temple to find it full of traders, money-changers. Saying they have changed a House of Prayer into a Den of Robbers, he angrily drives them out. Matthew 21;12-17, Mark 11;15-18, Luke 19;45-48, John 12;1-11

Tuesday, Jesus teaches in the Temple, where the Pharisees dispute his authority, Later he leads the Disciples to the Garden of Gethsemane, delivers what has become known as the Olivet discourse, the last of five great discourses,The Olivet Discourse is the name given to the orderly and extended teaching given by Jesus Christ on the Mount of Olives recorded in Matthews Gospel. Judas conspire to betray Jesus. Matthew 21;23-25, Mark 11;27-13;37, Luke 20;1-21;36, John 12;37-50

Wednesday, Thought to be a day of Rest. Matthew 26;1-5, John 13;21-35

Maundy Thursday, In a upper room, Jesus prepares both Himself & His Disciples for his Death. As Paul described it, the Messiah takes on the very nature of a servant, by washing the Disciples feet. He uses this simple Last Supper to give the Passover meal a new meaning. The loaf of bread, & cup of wine represent His Body, soon to be sacrificed & His Blood, soon to be shed. Jesus instructs the Disciples ” A New Commandment I give unto you, that you love one another as i have loved you. In Latin, this Mandatum (root of the word “Mandate’), hence Maundy Thursday. Jesus then again leads the Disciples to the Garden of Gethsemane and asks them to wait, to keep watch, while He prays. In agony as he confronts his impending death, He prays ‘for the sin of the world’ and we glimpse the Son of God at His most human, as he Begs his Father to, take this cup from me. Matthew 26;17-30, Mark 14;12-26, Luke 22;7-23, John 13,14,15,16

Good Friday, Following the Betrayal, arrest, desertion, denial, condemnation, beatings, mockery, Jesus bears His Cross to Golgotha, the place of the skull for death by crucifixion with two other prisoners. Jesus Body laid in the tomb before 6pm. When the Sabbath begins and all work stops, lies in the tomb throughout the Sabbath.

Why Good Friday? Probably to show that Christs Death has finally Liberated Us from Sin. In Eastern Orthodox church it is known as Great Friday, In Israel Big Friday, In Germany Friday of Lamentation. Matthew 27, Mark 15, Luke 22;66-23;56, John 18;28-19;37

Easter Sunday, Early in the morning, women go to the Tomb and find that the Stone at the entrance has been rolled away. An Angel tells them that Jesus is alive and gives them a message. Jesus appears to Mary Magdalene in the Garden, to Peter, to Two Disciples on the road to Emmaus and later that day to all the Disciples, except Thomas. Matthew 28;1-10, Mark 16;1-8, Luke 24;1-49, John 20

May Peace Be With You All, Happy Holy Week!

Whatever traditions you keep, remember that for Believers Easter is a celebration that really never ends. There is No Perfect Way to Discern, No Perfect way to Serve. This is an important truth to remember in a time where we aren’t able to go or do things we would like and aren’t able to normally serve. Your gift of service is no less valuable because there is no one perfect way to serve the Kingdom of God and to serve others. There is no perfect thing to give up, wherever you are at, it is fine. Dont feel like you need to be somewhere you are not.
Day by Day walk with Jesus through Holy Week, an encouragement to take your time, maybe read, listen, research Bible passages of Jesus Final days. May Peace Be with You All!

Spiritual warfare, Armor of God, Serenity

Spiritual warfare is the Christian concept of fighting against the work of preternatural evil forces. It is based on the biblical belief in evil spirits, or demons, that are said to intervene in human affairs in various ways.[1] Various Christian groups have adopted practices to repel such forces, as based on their doctrine of Christian demonology. Prayer is a common form of spiritual warfare among Christians.[2] Other practices may include exorcism, the laying on of hands, fasting, and anointing with oil.

A Religious war or Holy war (Latin: bellum sacrum) is a war primarily caused or justified by differences in religion. In the modern period, debates are common over the extent to which religious, economic, or ethnic aspects of a conflict predominate in a given war.

Mortal means something which is subject to death e.g. humans. Other living creatures are also subject to death.

The Immortal on the other hand, is something which never dies i.e. which is eternal.

What does the Bible say about spiritual warfare?”
There are two primary errors when it comes to spiritual warfare—over-emphasis and under-emphasis. Some blame every sin, every conflict, and every problem on demons that need to be cast out. Others completely ignore the spiritual realm and the fact that the Bible tells us our battle is against spiritual powers. The key to successful spiritual warfare is finding the biblical balance. Jesus sometimes cast demons out of people; other times He healed people with no mention of the demonic. The apostle Paul instructs Christians to wage war against the sin in themselves (Romans 6) and warns us to oppose the schemes of the devil (Ephesians 6:10–24).

Be Strong in the Lord, Put on the Whole Armor of God

The Belt Of Truth

The Believer’s Integrity – A soldier in Paul’s day had a leather girdle or belt  that he tightened about his waist to protect his loins and carry his weapons of warfare, such as a dagger or sword. The belt also held his tunic together so it wouldn’t be snagged. In Christian armor, it is integrity that holds everything else together. If you do not have integrity in the big and small things of your life, you are going to lose the battle. Would people say that you are a woman or man of integrity? If not, then you cannot win the battle.

The Breastplate Of Righteousness

The Believer’s Purity – The breastplate of a soldier was sometimes made of woven chain and used to cover the soldier’s vital organs. For the Christian, the breastplate is righteousness.

The enemy wants to attack you not only with lies, but also with impurity. He wants you to read filthy magazines, watch immoral movies, and engage in all temptations of the flesh. The bottom line is that Satan wants to get into your heart and mind. He’s looking for a crack in your armor. And don’t be fooled. Satan knows where that crack is. Is your heart pure before God? If not, then you cannot win the battle.

The Shoes Of Peace

The Believer’s Tranquility – A Roman soldier’s would have hobnails on the sole, very much like football cleats because when they were fighting they needed solid footing from which to move.

Unless you have a solid footing of peace, you can never make war. Sounds like a contradiction, doesn’t it? When Satan comes against your tranquility, he throws out stones and briars of doubts and discouragement to cause you to stumble. Do you have peace right now? If not, then you cannot win the battle.

The Shield Of Faith

The Believer’s Certainty – The Roman soldier’s shield measured approximately two by four feet and was made of wood covered with leather. In that day, soldiers dipped arrows in oil, then lit them and shot them at the enemy. These shields were vital to protect the solider from getting burned.

Satan is going to fire flaming arrows of doubt at you. He wants to place subtle doubts in your mind about God and His Truth. He knows a spark can ignite a big fire. You will need to feed your faith and starve your doubts. Are there any seeds of doubt in your mind today? If there are, then you cannot win the battle.

The Helmet Of Salvation

The Believer’s Sanity – A soldier used a helmet to protect his head because if his head was wounded, he wouldn’t be able to think. Every believer needs to have the mind of Christ under the control of Almighty God.

When a person is saved, for the first time he has his right mind. A person with out the Spirit in the Lord Jesus Christ has a form of insanity. They do not operate with the mind that God made them to have. The most important thing for you to have at all times is an assurance of your salvation. Do you know that you are saved? If you aren’t, then you cannot win the battle.

Sword of the Spirit

The Word of God  – When we are tempted, the most effective weapon that God has given to us as believers is the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Jesus modeled this so beautifully during His temptation in the wilderness. When the devil tried temptation after temptation against Him, Jesus used the sword of the Spirit. Jesus spoke the Word of God to Satan. In Luke 4:1-13, Jesus responded, “It is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord God only. Him only you shall serve.” and again brought the Scripture back into context, “It has been said, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’” The sword of the Spirit works. Memorize Scripture and use the Word of God to defeat Satan’s lies and attacks.

God has a plan for our lives. The enemy has a plan for us too. We just have to decide which voice we’re going to listen to, and who we’re going to choose to follow each day. And chances are, if we don’t make a determined choice to follow God, we may eventually fall into the evil one’s trap. God gives specific instructions in his Word, he gives us all we need to stand strong in this life. Yet all too often we race through busy, full days, ill-equipped, unprepared, or simply not aware of what we’re up against, or who the real enemy even is.

If you’re a believer living like salt and light in this dark world, you won’t go for long without encountering obstacles and attacks he’ll hurl straight your direction. This battle is real, it’s intense. Focusing here today, putting on His armor, staying alert, and praying, that God will equip believers everywhere to “stand strong.”

Spiritual Dimension

 Spiritual Dimensions?! Meaning of Life?!

We are currently here in order to achieve realization enough to effectively Ascend and progress into the next existence of living.

What do Spiritualist mean by Spiritual Dimensions, Dimensions is Levels, Personal Progress & Development. Dimension means an aspect, a feature, the scope or extent, the measurement or size of something in another direction. Dimensions in mathematics has to do with shapes, areas, size. This is the dimension of Unity Consciousness, still with an experience of “I” consciousness. Consciousness creates thought & this works when we sleep.

Fifth dimensional consciousness is the awareness of Soul and spirit, No Ego. The 6th dimension holds the templates for the DNA patterns of all types of species and is made up mostly of colour and tone. Spirit Guides often act from the 6th Dimension. Higher dimensions beyond the sixth, we lose shape and form, the dimensions become more abstract and less easily described in human language.

The seventh dimension is the realm of cosmic sound – not the vibratory patterns that we hear in the physical dimension, but the harmonics of creation. The 7th is the first level of the spiritual realm. 7th+ realm / dimension = Spiritual realms / Realms of Being. The 7th dimension is that of pure creativity, pure light, and pure tone.

The Christ level is the true 7th, the beginning of the spiritual realms. Once you are “One” with your Self that resides in the spiritual realms, you can do the works that Jesus did, greater works. There is no time or space on this level there is no illusion of separation. On this level you can meet angels, stellar beings who are in a Light body.

The 7th Dimension is the first energetic explosion into the field of Unconditional Love, or a state of ultimate bliss with its heightened freedoms allowing for the ecstatic brilliance of God-self-realization.  The 7th Dimension formally ends the first Universal Cycle for a majority of the souls existing in this Universe. The silent world of the Gods Themselves, state of pure consciousness, Nothingness of Being.

May Peace Be With You!

Something Better?!

When there is no Faithfulness. One reason for the lack of faith and Faithfulness is that so many of us have been betrayed in life, situations, & relationships. Without Faithfulness functioning In our Life,  Disaster, disapproval, disappointment is created. We have trusted in Friendships, relationships, finances, medicine, religions, many things, & much more etc..,

To later Discover Falsehood.  The False , Deceptive, Charlatan. In this all, there is one great TREASURE.  GOD!

GOD IS ALWAYS SOMETHING BETTER & ALWAYS FAITHFUL! HE IS NOT OF FALSE CLAIM, NO BROKEN PROMISES, NO DECEPTIVE AGENDA. ITS THE ROCK OF FOUNDATION UPON WHICH WE CAN BUILD OUR LIFE. 

Have you ever had someone break a commitment made to you?! How did you feel? How did you react? GOD IS FAITHFUL. He does not change due to AGE… He does not change as to PLACE…And he does not change as to HIS WORD.. HIS Word is FOREVER SETTLED IN HEAVEN. HEAVEN & EARTH WILL PASS AWAY, BUT NOT HIS WORD.

GOD HAS PROMISED HIS HELP & FAITHFULNESS TO ALL PEOPLE, TO ALL KIND OF SITUATIONS. HIS PROMISE ” I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU, I WILL NEVER FORSAKE YOU!”

SOMETHING BETTER?!

GOD Makes a Covenant

Genesis 15:7-21 In this passage, the conversation of our last post continues, this time Abraham asks God how he can be sure that God will give him the land of Canaan, an amazing question all things considered. God’s reply is even more amazing: He swears out a covenant. So the Lord said to him, “Bring me a […]
