What is Passion Week?

Passion week also known as Holy Week is the week from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday or Resurrection Sunday. Passion week is named because of the passion where Jesus Christ voluntarily went to the cross to pay for the sins of all mankind. Jesus Christ truly demonstrated His passion for us and the suffering he willingly went through on our behalf.

Passion week begins with the triumphal entry on Palm Sunday where Jesus rode on the back of the colt as prophesied Zechariah 9:9. The four gospels share the biblical account of the memorable events of Passion Week. We should be passionate about our worship to Christ and about sharing God’s love to others.

Today Is Your Crossover Day

Today is the day of significant things taking place in your life. Significant things will began to unfold as you agree with Heaven’s blueprint for your life. The Bible is God’s blueprint for everyday living. Many are at crossroads in life. I encourage you not to succumb to fear, doubt, and unbelief. Choose to surrender to put your faith in God and His word. Your crossroad will become moments you see the power of Christ at your “Cross” road moments. Today is your cross over a day.

What is a crossover? A crossover can mean to change from one activity or style to another. It can also mean a path ( often marked) where something as a street or railroad can be crossed to get from one side to the other.

I encourage you today to crossover from:

worry to peace

Fearful living to Faith living

Disorder to order

Unbelief to belief

Procrastination to being punctual

Lack to needs being met

Hate to love

Hopelessness to being hopeful.

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:13 (NKJV).

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (NKJV)

Abraham – Who against in hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, so shall seed be. Romans 4:18

Today if you can believe all things are possible for you that believe. Mark 9:23

Act on your God-given desires and dreams.

Draw the line in the sand and crossover to God’s glorious plan for your life.

This is the day of your crossover and begin to rejoice.

For the scripture says, whosoever believe in him shall not be ashamed. Romans 10:11

I look forward in reading your reply about your decision in making this moment your crossover day.

Romans 10:9-10

Don’t See Yourself Small and Insignificant

God has created you for a purpose and with a purpose. You are not an accident or an incident. You are loved by God! You have something the world needs. Discover and appreciate your God given gifts. Make the decision today not to allow people, possessions or lack thereof, or problems define who you are. Your value and worth must not be in the hands of another. They may not recognize your true value and worth. You are fearfully and wonderfully made by God.

Make the decision today not to despise where you are. Where you are in life is just a moment in time. Today make the choice not to allow it to become a monument.

 

Today is a new day to begin a new journey in life. Jesus came that you may have life and have it more abundantly. Do not put your life on hold. Ask God to open your eyes to see his abundance that He has for you. Begin to live in the abundance of God’s presence, love, peace, joy and wholeness because He has so much more for you.

This is your year. Make it what you desire it to be from your heart.

Romans 10:9-10

 

Worship The One Who Created You

God has created you in his image and after his likeness. God knew you before you entered your mother’s womb. God created you with a purpose and for a purpose. God loves you with an everlasting love. God is looking for you to be a worshipper of Him. God desires you to be a true worshipper.

The Bible states in John 4 that there was a woman who had five failed relationships. She encountered five failed marriages, yet that did not stop Jesus from seeing her with the eyes of love. She did not allow her past failures hinder her from receiving love from Christ. Jesus taught her about worship and she received the Word on Worship. Worship has many definitions.

Worship – The Greek words for “worship” in this verse is Proskuneo. Pros means in the direction of or towards, and kuneo is a word for kiss. It is a word of warm affection. Worship is showing affection to God.                                                                     

There is an English word worship that originates from an Old English word “worthship,” which was a word that denoted the worthiness of the one receiving the special honor or devotion. Worship is giving God his due worth.

Worship is giving God his due worth. To esteem to the worth, awe, adoration

Psalms 29:2                                                                                                                                   Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

When you worship you give “worth” to something. It is to tell what it is worth. When you give to God something that is worth something to you- you are telling God you are worth more to me than the something you gave to God.

Worship is giving God all that you are and all that you have. Worship is receiving God’s love and responding to His love by serving Him with all of your passion through the gifts and talents that God has given you that will bring Him Honor.

Thanksgiving

History of Thanksgiving
Our founding father of America, George Washington, acknowledge God’s purpose of thanksgiving over this great nation. In October 1879 he made this humble declaration. Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will to grateful for his benefits, and humbly implore His protection and favor- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee to requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a Day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of the Almighty God especially by affording them and opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Thanksgiving must have its root inside of you before it can bear fruit on the outside.
Thanksgiving is an expression of gratitude.
Thanksgiving is an attitude of appreciation and gratitude to God for something received from Him or for what He has done.

Three Reasons Why I Give God Thanks

I am thankful to God for sending His Only Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for me. For God so the loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

I am thankful that I can experience the good life that God has planned for me before I was even born.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

I am thankful that the quality of life I can live now is better than the kind of life the world has to offer me. Jesus said “I have come that they may have life, and that they have it more abundantly. John 10:10

Romans 10:9-10

Space Between Us

share_1464204213

I saw this movie entitled “The Space Between Us”. The movie is about a boy name Gardner who was conceived by his mother on Mars.There on Mars he developed a chatmate friendship relationship with a girl named Tulsa. Eventually he got a chance to come to earth and meet and spend time with his friend Tulsa. Their time together was quite amusing.
Several insight s I gathered from the movie.

Gardner envisioned meeting his friend and distance was not going to stop him.
Gardner prepared himself for the moment and what he was going to say when the moment arrives.God give you window of opportunities. You prepare today for opportunities tomorrow.
Gardner did not where he was going but he was willing to ask questions to get to where he wanted to go. Don’t let uncharted or unfamiliar territory stop you from seeking new horizons. Be willing to get out of your comfort zone in your thinking and living to experience new adventures. Faith enables you to make new journeys in life.

Gardner enjoyed what we can take for granted. Don’t take what’s in your world, friends, family,your surroundings for granted. Someone has less than what you have and may possibly have a better attitude inspite of having less. Be thankful for what you do have and more shall be given.

Gardner would have not seen his loved one had not made the decision to make the first step of what initially was impossible, that became a reality in his life.
Gardner’s choice to come to earth brought others together that needed each other.

Love is not bound by space or time.Space can be defined as distance or interval between two points. No more no less. Remember, what you do or accomplish in the time spent together with loved ones is what really makes all the difference. Make the most of each moment.

“God has Your Inheritance Package Waiting For You”

“God has Your Inheritance Package Waiting For You” Seven Fold Inheritance Package
Revelation 5:10-12 And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.”
11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice:
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,
And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

Power- Christ received power for us. Christ gave power to us the church. What do you need power for?
Because the wicked forces of the enemy cannot stop the Work of God. The enemy has no choice to respect the power of God.
Power is the language the enemy understand and respects.
Psalms 66:3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.

Power is only available to those who are born of God. Until a person receives Jesus as the Son of God, you don’t have access to the power of God.

John 1:12 ( New Birth is the first step into your inheritance of power) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
The day you receive Christ in your heart you have entered in the realm of covenant power. Everything about you becomes new. You are a child of power. Power is the foundation of your new life in Christ Jesus.
When a believer do not know this they are at the mercy of the circumstance, crisis, and every hardship they face in life.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Once you get saved,(born again) you become a power loaded individual. Salvation take you from a place of weakness trying to overcome issues, habits in your own strength to a place of power.

New birth confers on you the power of God. It is time to stop allowing the enemy to bully or harass you with fear tactics, his lies about you to destroy self image and self esteem, his lies about your family, health, business, etc.

Luke 10:19, Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Whatever has been place in your path to hurt you I declare it is crushed right in Jesus Name.

Whatever scheme, devise, plot of the enemy to get sidetrack, distracted, offended, to derail, discourage you in the things of God for your life, family, work, business will not succeed anymore in Jesus name.

I declare you will not be ignorant to any of devices he sought to attempt to use directly or indirectly against you in Jesus Name.
You need power to accomplish God’s vision assignment on our lives. You cannot fulfill God’s mandate in your own human wisdom and strength. Zechariah 4:6
The Word of God says you receive power when you ask and receive the Holy Spirit. Luke 11:13 Jesus said….. If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Stay thirsty and hungry for God and the things of God and your needs will be met.
Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Psalms 63:1-2 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

Isaiah 44:3
For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:

Romans 10:9-10
