“Holy holy holy is the Lord Almighty – who was and is and is to come.” Holy holy holy is the Lord Almighty – who was and is and is to come.“
See Me raised up on the cross – see me as a lamb – a sacrificial lamb being slain. Giving no resistance, in fact giving myself voluntarily for your life. This is not a time of mourning – through my death comes life – life with a new meaning, the old has been done away with – there is a new beginning – A clean slate – free from the drag of regrets and loss of faith. A life offered with the opportunity of joy – this is indeed the day that the Lord has made, a day washed clean by my blood so there can be a new beginning. Do not be sad, rejoice that is why I came – to bring new life and joy – which will rise from the ashes of My death on the cross.
I spend some time contemplating John 19:30. When he had sipped the sour wine, he said, “It is finished my bride!” Then he bowed his head and surrendered his spirit to God. This is The Passion translation. The explanation is that the Hebrew word for ”tetalestai” could be both ”it is completed” or ”bride”. Putting the two together indicates that the completed work on the cross launches His initiation of His ultimate aim, to prepare a bride for Himself.
Most blessed are we all to be part of that work. ”Come. Come today in response to His invitation and seek His face”. His promise is that you will find Him abundantly.

Easter Devotion ……………….. The resurrection of our Holy Lord Jesus christ is our ultimate V I C T O R Y and only H O P E ! ” Behold I tell you a mystery : We shall not all sleep , but we shall all be changed – in a moment , in the twinkling of an eye. At the last trumpet . For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruptibility and this mortal must put on immortality. But when this corruptible will.have put on incorruptibility and this mortal will.have put on immortality, then shall.come to pass the saying that is written : Death is swallowed up in victory ! (Isaiah 25 8 ). Where O Death is your victory? Where O Death is your sting? ” 1 Corinthians 51 All.Glory and power be to our Holy Lord forever and ever ! Amen 🙏
God in his Infinite Wisdom, sent us His son, to redeem us through the Lamb of God, who came, lived and died with the promise of the new covenant and a life to the full. And upon our death, we have the promise of being raised, as Jesus promised Martha. It fills me with a deep love and devotion to our King and Priest, and Jahweh our Father.
