JOHN 11:32 LIFTING UP JESUS

Christ the Redeemer

This statue stands on Mount Corcovado in Rio de Janero, Brazil, since 1931. It stands 98 feet tall with an arm span of 92 feet.

In the Book of John- Chapter 11:32, the scripture states:  And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto me.

This statue of Jesus should speak volumes to everyone who gazes upon it. Those who have not heard of Him may wonder just who this monument stands for. May this curiosity lead to a seeking of more information about this Jesus.

The word  lifted can mean exalted.  As we exalt the name of Jesus, the promise is that people will be drawn to him.  So many times, His name is used as a curse word from people who do not realize just whose name they are using.  God will forgive them for this sin, but not for blaspheming the works of the Holy Spirit.

I pray today, that this monument of Jesus will lead many to the Lord.  May the athletes at the Olympics come away with more than medals, but with Salvation by the real Jesus Christ in their hearts and lives.  Father, convict them of sin and unrighteousness and draw them by your Holy Spirit into your Kingdom.   In Jesus' name, I pray.

Winter Park Aglow Community Light House meets the 2nd. Saturday of each month at Aloma U. Methodist Church which is located at 3045 Aloma Avenue, Winter Park, Florida, in Room 24.  We start the meeting at 9:30 a.m. and close around noon.  We collect nonperishable food for the needy.  Refreshments are always offered, and there is no cost for attending. An offering will be taken.  Prayer will be extended for anyone desiring it.  

Men, women and teens are invited.  Reservations are not required.  We have a different, anointed speaker at each meeting.  So come and be blessed.  You will surely feel the presence of the Holy Spirit when you attend.

JULY ARMOR WEAR FOR BATTLE


WE ARE AT WAR
     Just open the newspaper or listen to the news, and you will see that we are facing an all-out fight for our religious freedom.  The battle for our unsaved loved ones is at our door.  Jesus may come sooner than we think, and we do not want anyone to be lost.  
     The things that were once unthinkable are now commonplace in the society in which we live.    Apathy no longer has a place in us.  We are called to participate in a war that is none of our making, but is affecting everything we hold dear. In the Book of Ephesians, Paul tells us to put on our armor for whether we want to fight or not, a battle is brewing.  It is time for us to be serious in our prayer time, spend more time with God, and pray in a Heavenly language that God has endowed many of us with.  If you do not have it yet, it is time to ask for the filling of the Holy Spirit and all the gifts that are a part of being a Spirit-Filled Child of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
     Lord, hear this prayer.  May you be so close to your children that we cannot miss hearing your voice when you speak .  We need your guidance in how to meet and fight the enemy which is trying to destroy everything that is dear to us.  

Come and be a part of our monthly meetings at Aloma U. Methodist Church, 3045 Aloma Avenue, Winter Park, FL. Winter Park Aglow Community Lighthouse meets in Room 24 starting at 9:30 a.m. and concludes around 12:30 p.m. on the 2nd. Saturday of each month. Refreshments are always served, and a blessing drawing is made.   We need the support of each other. There is a time of prayer for all who indicate a desire.  We endeavor to be a supportive group that all can feel free to participate in.

JUNE 12-13, 2016 DAY OF PENTECOST - JEWISH CALENDAR

Day of Pentecost - Shavuot = June 12-13, 2016 on Jewish Calendar
Shavuot (weeks) - Pentecost (50)
In Biblical times Shavuot originally signified thanksgiving for the first harvest of wheat. However, by the time of Jesus, this ancient feast was connected by rabbinic calculation as the time of the giving of God's revelation on Sinai.  It is of value to connect ourselves to the land by this feast as well as to celebrate the giving of the Law in our worship. 
However, there is a central meaning for Messianic Jews and Christians who have adopted this holiday as one of their own, for on this day, God sovereignly chose to give the Holy Spirit (Ruach ha Kodesh) to Yeshua's gathered followers.  In Acts Chapter Two, we read the marvelous story of how they preached the Gospel supernaturally to Jewish people from many lands who spoke many languages. The followers of Yeshua were able to communicate in these languages, even though they never learned them, the wonderful news of salvation.  A great harvest of people were gathered into the new community of faith on this day.
How significant it is that God providentially gave His Spirit on this day, for only through the power of the Spirit can we actually harvest God's will.  It is by the Spirit that God's law is written on our hearts (Ezekiel 36:25-27, Hebrews 10:16). (Taken from Jewish Roots-A Foundation of Biblical Theology by Dan Juster.)





 
When I first planned my blog for this month, June, I thought of Father's Day, but it didn't seem to be what I was supposed to write about; and then I realized that according to the Jewish Calendar that we were in error by celebrating Pentecost Sunday on May 15.  What happened?  How could this miscalculation be?  Anything to water down what God has in store for His followers.  
As for me and my house, I will celebrate this marvelous feast on June 12 in 2016.

The Four Seasons of Life
Ecclesiastes 3:1 thru 3:8  King James Version
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven; 2. A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5. A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6. A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7. A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence and a time to speak; 8. A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

No matter which season we find ourselves in now, we feel that it won't end; but it will.  Solomon who was the wisest man who ever lived besides Jesus, declares that "the times, they are a changing."  God will see us through the most difficult of situations if we put our trust in Him and the promises He has given us in His Word.

Come and spend a Saturday morning with us. We meet the 2nd. Saturday of each month at: Aloma United Methodist Church, 
                                            3045 Aloma Avenue, Winter Park, FL.

We always have a wonderful speaker, powerful praise and worship, and prayer for those who desire being prayed for.  No reservations are required, and all are welcome--men, women, and teens or those old enough to be able to sit still for a few hours.

Speak to the Mountain!
MOUNTAINS

The Lord has put it in my spirit this month to focus on mountains. Micah 4:1-2 ( paraphrased), In the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills: and people shall flow unto it. 4:2  And many nations shall come, and say, Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord...and He will teach us His ways, and we will walk in His paths; for the law shall go forth from Zion.

Jesus was tempted upon the mountain, Matt:4-8.  He preached from the mountain, Matt 5:1; Jesus goes up for prayer, Matt: 14:23, is transfigured on the mountain ,Matt. 17:1-9.  In Matt: 21:21, Jesus says, "Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be cast into the sea; it shall be done." verse 22. "And all things, whatsoever you ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive".

We know through Scripture that we can have what we say, so if we believe this, we should be able to say to our mountain of problems and health issues:  Be thou removed and cast into the sea!

I pray that the Lord will make this a reality in our lives...what have we got to lose, a few words out of our mouths, and trust that faith and hope will build in our hearts, and that our mountain will be removed.

Join us this Saturday, March 12, 2016, at Aloma U. Methodist Church, 3045 Aloma Avenue, Winter Park, FL  32792  for our monthly meeting at 9:30 in room 24.
 Refreshments will be served. It is free with no reservations required. Men, women and teens are all welcome. We always have a wonderful speaker and this month is no exception.  If you want me to send you a flyer, call me.

Winter Park Aglow Community Lighthouse
February Meeting at Aloma United Methodist Church
                                  3045 Aloma Avenue
                                                   Winter Park, Florida 32792
                                   Room 24 at 9:30 a.m.
                                   Saturday, February 13, 2016

This is the month that we celebrate Love. There are three different types of which the Greek word AGAPE is the God kind of love, and PHILEO, human kindness or brotherly love, and EROS which is the romantic type of love.

This the I CORINTHIANS chapter14 is the type of love we want to achieve, this pure, unselfish type of LOVE. Though we may not have reached the goal, we can attempt to practice it, for it is the Scriptural type of love God gives in this LOVE CHAPTER.

LOVE is the greatest gift that God has imparted to us:  GOD IS LOVE. It is His nature, it is who HE is.  So, let us attempt to follow the example that Jesus gave us, wherein Christ died for us while we were yet sinners and gave His life for the whole world; and whoever receives Him as Lord and Savior will have eternal life according to John 3:16.

Never forget that Jesus loves you. Have a blessed month. Come to our Aglow meeting and be blessed with Fellowship, Prayer, Refreshments, and a great Speaker.  We start at 9:30 a.m.
