“Let this cup pass from me…” Matthew 26:39
Beloved, the statement in our memory verse was made by Jesus Christ our Lord and savior in the garden of Gethsemane. This was during His contemplation and prayer to God about the sacrifice He was about to make. When He said that to His Father, God could have easily answered Him by taking away the cup of suffering. He could have easily decided that man should pay their own penalties and spare His son the pains of the cross. However, His mercy and enduring compassion was greater than what was about to happen to Jesus. So mercy overcame and Jesus went to the cross.
You see, the sin of Adam had destroyed the fellowship that God had with man, and till today God longs for intimacy with you and me. He misses those cool evening walks He had with Adam and longs for such with man. This is why Jesus Christ came to reconcile man back to God so that the lost intimacy could be rekindled. You see, before the fall of man, Adam was clothed in God’s glory, which covered his flesh. That was why when he sinned and the glory lifted, he saw his nakedness. His flesh was covered by glorious light in the beginning, like a fire that consumes all sin. He lost this when he sinned. That was why Jesus had to come to restore the dignity, glory and honour of man. Today we who are saved are no longer restricted from God’s glory. The new covenant tells us very plainly that the God who shinned out of darkness has ‘shinned’ in our hearts, to give (us) the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6)
God put His glory back in man because His mercy endures forever. His mercy was greater than all the sin in the whole world. This month, mercy will speak for you!
2 Corinthians 4:6-7
Healed of stomach problems
I thank God who made me know about Praise Tabernacle and Larry Mishael. I used to suffer stomach problems which always resulted in frequent stooling. On one Saturday before a PHD service, it started again. The following day, it continued. I was too weak to do anything. I managed to come to church that day and joined in the prayers. After the service, I got the oil of gladness and communion blood of Jesus. I began using them. Since that day, the stomach problem ceased. I am strong, hale and hearty now. Thank You Jesus!
[Thank God for a new day]
1. O blood of Jesus that speaks mercy, speak for me and my family in Jesus name!
2. I build a wall of protection round about my household and all that belong to me in Jesus name.
3. There shall no evil befall us; neither shall any plague come near our dwelling in Jesus name!
4. Let all those mapped out to bless me never miss me this month in Jesus name.
5. (sprinkle the oil of gladness in your mouth and forehead and declare) I command total healing upon my life now in Jesus name!
