This is Passion Week and shortly we commemorate the greatest events in human history, the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We mark these events with our Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday services this weekend. Each service commences at 9a.m. Please note there is one Sunday morning service. Do invite your friends and family to share in these times with us and let us be praying for the salvation of persons and the advance of the kingdom. Be early!

He’s Alive – Sound of Man
We culminate our weekend activities with a grand celebration of our Lord’s life, death, burial and resurrection at our He’s Alive concert with Sound of Man and family. This is at 6p.m. on Sunday. This is a paid event and the proceeds will go towards the development of our Transformational Oasis, which is to propel our vision to facilitate existing and prospective outreach ministries of the church. God’s willing the event should be streamed live into two of our Correctional Institutions.  Let’s be praying for a mighty move of God across our land and indeed across the world.

Pay Per View
Tickets for He’s Alive are virtually sold out and as such we are offering for those who are unable to get tickets to watch the event via the internet.
You may do so by going to the He's Alive - Pay Per View webpage. You may also stay in the know by liking us on Facebook or following us on Twitter.

 

Reflections

Last Sunday we looked at Serving Saviour from John 13:1-17.  It was Palm Sunday when we commemorated Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on a donkey as the crowd shouted, “ Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord” as they waved palm branches. (John 12:13)  Yet while that was happening there was a death threat on Jesus’ life.  Part of Jesus’ popularity came from His raising his friend, Lazarus from the dead.  News and celebration of this amazing miracle spread far and wide but the Pharisees were upset at Jesus’ rising fame. When you do good some will love you while others will want you dead.  Jesus knew of this threat and so had gone underground.  In so doing he had visited with the resurrected Lazarus and his sisters, Mary and Martha. It was then that Mary had anointed Jesus with expensive perfume in preparation for his burial.

In the opening verses of our text (1-3), we see that in light of the reality of His pending death, Jesus is consumed with love for those who were His own.  This is so despite his awareness that one of His own followers, Judas, had been enslaved and prompted by the devil, to betray Him.  It is also significant to note that Jesus was also deeply aware of His own divine origin, His power and the destiny of His work. (v.3)

God is constantly demonstrating His love to us whilst the devil is constantly working to turn men’s heart away from God and to spoil God’s plan. (See John. 10:10)  In the midst of all of this however, verse 3 makes it abundantly clear that God is in charge of all the happenings in the universe including planet earth.  “All things are under his (Jesus’) power.”  Even when evil seems to be having the ascendancy, (Note Jesus was about to be crucified - what a triumph for evil).  God is not only at work but is in control.  His purposes must and will prevail.  He never loses control.  Even the devil’s plan must yield to the dictates of God’s sovereignty, plan and design.

Finally

As we have been preparing for this weekend activities we have sensed an increase in enemy engagement (spiritual warfare).  We are not ignorant of the enemy’s devices and as such I ask that we intensify our intercession for our services, for all those who will be ministering and attending.

I ask special prayer for Sound of Man and our families.  Please pray God’s covering over our lives, for good health, strength and grace.

May the river of God flow mightily in us and through us to bring healing and reconciliation to our broken world!

In His love,
David
