When You Stand Praying, 2021
We have stepped into fertile delta soil spiritually when we come to this section of scripture. The chapter begins with what we celebrate today as Palm Sunday. We find Jesus instructing his disciples what they needed to celebrate communion. This is His last week of the earthly ministry He had been sent to open for the physical descendants of Abraham. He has cursed the fig tree before we reach the twenty-fifth verse. He has explained the power of speaking in faith, now he tells the listeners a very important fact that was needful and necessary for them, He said FORGIVE!
Now forgiveness works by love, when we encounter problems in the natural state, and it becomes an impossible situation, then we lay it down as unobtainable.
We shared some scriptural examples of what forgiveness can and will accomplish in our lives, for instance Matt. 18:24-35, Matt. 6:14-15.
Forgiveness means we release the debt; even though they wronged us, it is a personal act now between us and God. He is the righteous judge, His judgements are righteous altogether. When we hold on to bitterness, hard feelings, bitterness, etc. we have replaced God and set up ourselves as the judge and jury in the case. We have set up ourselves as an idol in our own hearts (Ezek. 14:1-3). Now that is heavy!
When our souls are repaired/restored then we are able to completely forgive atrocities that may even extend back to generational acts that we inherited the emotional ties to. Our emotions, memories, mind, heart, will, and intellect have all been negatively impacted by this cancer of unforgiveness, but God has created a path back to wholeness. Plant, grow, and eat the fruits of His love that will transform all negative emotions into energy-less particles that can no longer work to keep us in bondage. Speak to the mountain; utilize the power of binding and loosing, all of these are medicine to produce forgiveness.
Be blessed and walk in forgiveness!
Listen now: The service has been separated into three parts, like a delectable meal prepared specially for you. Be blessed!
Healing and Deliverance
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
