WATCH AND PRAY
THE BENEVOLENCE OF GOD: Before I bless you I have to give you Spiritual Food and our spiritual food is drawn from:
“Then saith Jesus unto them, All shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.”
Brethren, you all are aware of what today is. It was on a night like this that certain unique events occurred which transformed the world for the entire mankind to receive salvation. It is the revelation of the passage read to you that has kept us till now. Many of you do not know the purpose for which you are called. You simply come here to be ordained and your feet washed. THE ESSENTIAL THING THAT SHOULD PREOCCUPY YOUR MIND IS YOUR PERSONAL SALVATION WHICH YOU HAVE IGNORED. It should have been the pre-occupation of the entire humanity to show a thankful heart to the being who paid that supreme and final sacrifice for the redemption of mankind. Many people believe that Our Lord had come while a lot of others are still expecting Him to crash-land from the skies. THAT IS WHY IT IS NECESSARY TO BRING TO YOUR REMEMBRANCE THAT IT WAS ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT LIKE THIS THAT OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST PAID THAT SUPREME SACRIFICE.
WE KEEP “WATCH AND PRAY SERVICE” EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT TO COMMEMORATE THIS SIGNIFICANT EVENT. TO DAY IS NOT A DAY TO BE TOYED WITH. THAT WAS WHY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST ASKED HIS DISCIPLES TO WATCH WITH HIM FOR AT LEAST ONE HOUR. He was arrested at 3:00 am, being the early hours of THURSDAY MORNING, AND THAT IS WHY WE IN BROTHERHOOD OF THE CROSS AND STAR CONDUCT OUR “WATCH AND PRAY” UNTIL 3:00 AM AND BEYOND.
IT WAS ALSO ON THAT FATEFUL WEDNESDAY NIGHT THAT HE WASHED THE FEET OF THE TWELVE DISCIPLES AND UNITED THEM AS ONE. There we have nothing to do with time because all things are done as the Father pleases. His actions can never be challenged or questioned. All things done here have their spiritual essence.
THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT BEEN OBSERVING WATCH AND PRAY SESSIONS SHOULD START RIGHT NOW IN EARNEST TO OBSERVE IT. IT IS IMPERATIVE TO DO SO IN ABSOLUTE LOVE AND APPRECIATION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST WHO DIED FOR US. Therefore being elected as prophet and your feet or hand washed is merely a secondary issue. THE CRUX OF THE MATTER IS TO SHOW APPRECIATION TO OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST FOR USING HIS BLOOD TO PURCHASE AND TO TRANSFORM HUMANITY. AND YOU SHOULD AGREE WITH ME THAT IF IT WERE NOT THE ARREST THAT NIGHT AND HIS ULTIMATE DEATH, THE WORD OF GOD WOULD HAVE BEEN IN VAIN. BUT IT HAD TO HAPPEN BECAUSE IT HAD BEEN WRITTEN OF HIM. IT WAS GOD’S MASTER-PLAN. WE ARE SAVED BY GRACE, WE SIMPLY INHERIT THIS KINGDOM THROUGH HIS MAGNANIMITY, AND THEREFORE THIS TIME OF HIS RULE AND REIGN SHOULD NOT BE TOYED WITH. Your mundane wisdom, riches, position, or even suggestion is not needed here. You are to enjoy this kingdom gratis. There is nobody who will want to be here, but the reality of it is that it is only those who are needed that are called. THE ABILITY TO DO SOMETHING COMES FROM THE FATHER AND NOT FROM ANYBODY ELSE. AND YOU CANNOT DO ANYTHING BETTER THAN WHAT HE HAS PREORDAINED FOR YOU.
Brethren, I do not want to take you further, let those who have ears to hear, hear. May God bless His Holy Words. Amen.
THANK YOU FATHER.
