John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him."

The Real Meaning of Easter


The best way to understand the real meaning of Easter would be from Jesus. The real meaning is a three word answer ... the new covenant.

The New Covenant
Jesus had come in town for the Passover celebration and was getting ready to be betrayed by one of the disciples, publicly humiliated and mocked, beaten beyond recognition, and hung on a cross to die, when he made his special request for his followers to remember that He gave his body for us and poured out his blood as a sacrifice for us. The heart of Easter lies in his words, "the new covenant between God and his people."
In Luke 22 we get a picture of the night before his death:
When the time came, Jesus and the apostles sat down together at the table. Jesus said, "I have been very eager to eat this Passover meal with you before my suffering begins. For I tell you now that I won't eat this meal again until its meaning is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God." Then he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. Then he said, "Take this and share it among yourselves. For I will not drink wine again until the Kingdom of God has come." He took some bread and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, "This is my body, which is given for you. Do this to remember me." After supper he took another cup of wine and said, "This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood, which is poured out as a sacrifice for you. Luke 22:14-20*
Passover and the New Covenant
Since the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden, people were destined to be separated from God because of their sin. God's Spirit rested on the Patriarchs of our faith, but was not poured out on the masses. The Holy of Holies was the innermost and most sacred part of the tabernacle and ordinary people of faith would never get to have access to this place where God's Presence could be found. We were hopeless in our sins and distanced from God.
People of faith offered up animal sacrifices according to the laws given to Moses to ask God to forgive their sins and have mercy on them. Bulls, goats, and lambs each had their significance. But the lamb had special meaning because it was lamb's blood the Israelites painted on their doorposts to avoid death on the night of Passover. (Exodus 12:11-13*)
God gave Moses and Aaron specific instructions on how to honor God with annual Passover celebrations. Lamb is the pinnacle of the Passover meal. The lambs were to be spotless and even lived with the families for several days before they were sacrificed, adding to the understanding that the ultimate sacrifice was close to the hearts of those whose sins were atoned for. All of the many interesting details of celebrating Passover have significant meaning that point to the ultimate Passover lamb - Jesus Christ - a sinless God-man who lived among the people for a season.
What is the real meaning of Easter? In John 1:29*, as he sees Jesus approaching, John the Baptist announces to the crowd around him, "Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!"
He knew that Jesus was the son of God, the long awaited Messiah, the one whom God's prophets had promised to save mankind from their sins and to give them a deep heartfelt relationship with God the Father. The new covenant would be an everlasting covenant. (Jeremiah 31:31-34*, Jeremiah 32:39-42*, Isaiah 55:3*) Jesus, our sacrificial lamb, our Savior, our God, our Redeemer - he laid down his life as our sacrificial lamb to pay for our sins. When he rose from the dead three days later, he gave victory over eternal separation from God (death) to all who put their faith and trust in him. That is the new covenant - everlasting life spent with God through faith in all that Jesus Christ has done and continues to do.
Bible Verses
All who believe in the Son of God know in their hearts that this testimony is true. Those who don't believe this are actually calling God a liar because they don't believe what God has testified about his Son. And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God's Son does not have life. (1 John 5:10-12*, NLT)
“Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3*b-4, KJV)
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9*, NLT)

Prayer
Father God, there is sometimes controversy about how, when, and what to call the remembrance of the greatest day in history - the day Jesus Christ, your beloved son, rose from the dead and brought the gift of your forgiveness and eternal life to all who would like to receive it - the new covenant. Please pour out your Holy Spirit on all who believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ and put us on our knees before you with thankful hearts for your great love for us. You, oh God, have given us victory over sin and death, and the promise of never leaving us or forsaking us for eternity. Help us to be the body of Christ, the church, united in awe of how you saved our unworthy souls ... your body and your blood as a sacrifice for us. Help us to bring this message to all who will listen. Help us to love like you love. Thank you forever! Amen.

If My People Call Upon My Name.



If my people will call upon My Name!!


I believe that it is time for us to take the Word of God literally, when He says: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)


Now my question is: Does God really listen to His people call unto His name as the Bible teaches it? It is one thing to cry out and say: God help me.  But, the Bible says: ‘if the people that are ‘called by His name’. Does it make a difference if we are truly born again or not, when we pray? Definitely it does.

When the Bible specifies that God refers to His people, than that means He refers to His People; meaning every human being that is born again by believing in the fact that Jesus shed His blood for us as He died on the cross and rose again on the third day.  'And seek my face'.  Have you  ever thought about it, how we as God´s people all together can seek God´s face? We need to learn to pray and seek the face of our God.


Second question I have is the following: And what if God´s people call on Him without humbling themselves; and then what? If we reject to humble us before our God, He will not listen to our prayers.


Third question: Do we have to turn from our wicked ways for God to answer us? Yes, indeed.   


Forth question: What is the whole implication for our God to hear our prayers and answer them?  

For our land to be healed it is a process. Let me explain it with an analogy. For instance, let´s say: Our whole country was infected with a disease. How would the health department address it to be cured? All people that live here, would have to be treated, and the doctors would make sure that all procedures must be done in order for the country be free from that disease… or else it could become a killer… right? Well, in the spiritual realm it is no different, our disease is sin. Unless, we go to the doctor of all doctors to be healed as  a land… we will not prosper without HIM.


Fifth question: Who is involved in the fact for God to answer the prayer? Every human that lives in the land? No. God´s Word says: If my people who call themselves by my name…  Think of it: Why are we called Christians?  The Bible refers to us as Christians, read it in Acts 11:26:  And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.”

Disciples of Jesus are called Christians, and it means we teach the message of Christ. We are followers of Jesus Christ. Now, this definition I described here as I understand the Word of God.

Lately I have prayed a lot for those that are listening to a gospel that is not from God ... many churches unfortunately preach a gospel that was never declared by the mouth of our God ..... Text taken out of context becomes a pretext for heresy. .... And I have felt God touch me to awaken the people of God so that we can begin to cry out to God so that the true Gospel will be preached and Christians being used by God in the anointing that comes from Him ... so that salvation can flow to the ends of the earth, and that the world which God loves can be truly saved.'

Isaiah 30: 18-19.  God Will Be Gracious
“18 Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you; And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the Lord is a God of justice;
Blessed
are all those who wait for Him.
19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem; You shall weep no more. He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry; When He hears it, He will answer you.”

Based on the verse above: 


1.  Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you, And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
2.  And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
3.  For the Lord is a God of justice.
4.  And the result of all this will be: “Blessed are all those who wait for Him. For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem; You shall weep no more. He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry; When He hears it, He will answer you.”

When you and I look at your country… and by the way… it does not matter which country you are in right now, as you read this, you might be in a country far away from mine. ‘But, we all can call on the Lord for our country, right?’ If we are His people, and we call on Him as His Word declares, He will hear us, and heal our land. Amen, praise God the Almighty One.    

You might say: Well, our country is not sick, it does not need to be healed.  Well, if you live in a country that does not need any help. I would suggest to be thankful and to pray for those that do need help. 
You would be willing to pray 15 times each month ... you choose the day and time ... when it is best for you ... and when you cry out to God, read these two verses while you pray .... God will have mercy Of His Church here on earth .... God will hear the cry of His people ... Let's pray Until we hear God answering our cry unto Him... I believe that God hears the cry of his people ....

I invite you to join the Body of Christ here on earth to pray for our nation. I pray for my nation and your nation. Please do the same. God will answer our prayer according to His Word, if we follow it as He prescribed. Remember, medicine that the doctor prescribes must be taken as the doctors says in order for it to have the right effect. For our prayer to have the right effect it must be done as the Lord has prescribed it.

May the Lord bless His  people as we pray.
