Monday Before The Crucifixion of our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ (The Son of God)

The Triumphal Entry…

(Matthew 21:1-9; Mark 11:1-10; Luke 19:28-44)

Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest!!!

These were the cries the people were making while laying down their clothes & palm leaves on the path as Jesus was making His entrance into Jerusalem, with a reception for a King having made His Victorious return from Battle.

We ought to rejoice for in His name we have all things, healing, strength, power, authority, victory over death, the principalities, demons, the devil, etc.. & by His blood were have been redeemed and reconciled unto the Father.

Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest!!! 

Have a blessed week;

Pray for Marriage!

                                                Alliance Defending Freedom
 

PRAY FOR MARRIAGE

Next month, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in two of the most important marriage cases in history. The potential impact of these two cases on the future of marriage is unprecedented. So we are asking you to join Alliance Defending Freedom and our allies in praying very specifically for marriage.

Developing the next generation to defend your religious freedom.

Alliance Defending Freedom has been at the forefront in the battle to defend marriage — and by God’s grace, we’re winning nearly 3 out of 4 marriage cases in America. Whatever the outcome, God’s design for marriage doesn’t change, and our commitment to defending your religious freedom doesn’t end.

PRAY FOR MARRIAGE

P.S. Please share this page with your friends and family and ask them to pray with us.

The Bride of Christ

During a wedding ceremony, after the candles are lit, the guests seated and the bridal party is in place, there arises an anticipation that fills the atmosphere.  There is a quiet pause as all eyes wait to behold the grand entrance of the hidden bride.  Suddenly the music begins to play and all stand to their feet as the doors open, giving way for her entrance.  As she makes her way down the aisle, her dazzling white dress reflects her beauty within.  Her groom utters no words, but his eyes speak volumes.

In this ceremony, all is wonderful.  All is glorious.  All is exciting!  But how much time and preparation did it take for this wonderful, glorious, exciting moment to take place?

We must remember that the natural is a type and shadow of the spiritual.  There is an earthly Bride and a Heavenly Bride.  There is an earthly Bridegroom and a Heavenly Bridegroom.  We know who the spiritual Bridegroom is, but who is the mysterious Bride?

Revelation 19:7 states, “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His Bride hath made herself ready.”  Here we find the key to the mysterious Bride.  She is not the entire Church of Jesus Christ.  If that were the case, the entire Church would be “ready”.  The scripture declares that “His Bride hath made herself ready”, which means that only those who are preparing themselves to meet the Bridegroom can make up the Bride.  

It is interesting to note that the first thing seen on a Bride is her dress.  It is of utmost importance because the garment she wears is a reflection of who she is.  Her greatest challenge is protecting her dress and keeping it clean from anything that would defile its beauty.  

Ephesians 5:27 declares, “That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”  Notice that the Bride is part of the “church”, but not ALL of the church.  This Bridal company consists of those who are continually living the life of total surrender to Christ.  They are making sure to take care of their garment by keeping it clean from all worldly elements.  The spots and stains and wrinkles of the self-life must be removed so that the true beauty of the garment, which is the “righteousness of Christ”, can be seen.  The righteousness of Christ is the inner working of the Holy Spirit to bring us into “right standing” with God.  And when that inner work is complete, we are then clothed with the wedding dress and ready to be presented to our Bridegroom!

Let us not be satisfied to only be part of the Church of Jesus Christ.  Let us make it our goal to be His Bride.  Let us take the time to prepare ourselves and rid our garment from every spot, wrinkle and blemish so that we can present ourselves before Him in purity and holiness, reflecting His image and likeness, in which we can truly become ONE with Him!

Saint Valentine, Valentine’s Day…

Image

Valentine’s Day is many things to many people, only they can answer what that is to them, but what is Valentine’s Day Truly about & where did it originate?

Allow me to tell you a little story…

The year is circa 268 AD & this is in Rome, the emperor at this time is Marcus Aurelius Valerius Claudius Augustus, also known as Claudius Gothicus (Claudius II). This Emperor was a man of war, one who strongly believed that soldiers performed better being single with no tides back home, so he had in place an edict that banned Christian Marriages at a time where Polygamy was rampant & acceptable, so many people were drawn to Christian marriages between one man & one woman.

Around the very same period, there was a priest who decided to remain true to his faith & beliefs and decided to go on and still marry those who were willing to have Christian marriages, but he did so in secret. A year after he was caught out and arrested & sentenced to a threefold punishment, consisting of being beaten, being stoned, & decapitation. Prior to this time, amongst the men set to execute the sentence was a man by the name of Asterius who’s daughter was blind & had received healing through the hands of Saint Valentine, which resulted in Asterius becoming Christian. Seeing that he had grown fond of Asterius’ daughter, Valentine sent her a note through her father in which he’d sign “From your Valentine” few moments later, he was executed.

This did not go unnoticed from the public, & in remembrance of his valor, valiance, & courage, people commemorate his death through public demonstrations of Love to one another, more so between couples & that is how Valentine’s day came about.

For one moment can we please keep away from the commercialization of this day & return to its true essence & show love to one another, just as God loved us & gave His only Son that we may receive everlasting love.

Once more Happy Valentine’s day to all & stay blessed!

NETWORKING…

Strong hold

Weare known as the Church Now Network, and on this post we are going to be covering the topic of networking.

What is networking?

According to dictionary.com:

net·work·ing

 [net-wur-king]  Show IPA

noun

1.

a supportive system of sharing information and services among individuals and groups having acommon interest: Working mothers in the community use networking to help themselves manage successfully.

As the definition clearly states what networking is, should sort of give us a better view of where we are coming from; We have a vision & a mission, but one thing for sure is that we are well aware that for us to be able to achieve these goals & objectives is by coming together collectively & rally up behind a common vision in order to make it a tangible reality.

As well stated in the Bible in 1 Peter 4:10 “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”

We value each & everyone’s input in our efforts to propel the Gospel of Jesus Christ via Affordable Cutting Edge Technology.

Hope that you can join us in our endeavor!

It’s a new day & a new work week…

It’s a new day & a new work week at that, this is a chance to learn from the past, let it go & start over stronger & wiser. Your reality is what you make it out to be! For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks (Matt 12:34), just as much as life & death, success or failure, are in the power of the tongue & those who love it shall it its fruits (Pro 18:21) believe in love, life, success, & progress, speak it & soon enough you’ll begin to live it! it’s that simple.

You cannot have a new year/season if you

You cannot have a new year/season if you have not received a new mind/mindset, God bless @BishopJakes http://ow.ly/hlelu
