Breaking new ground

Notes from Intercession and Praise meeting on 30 August 2011

Breaking new ground

A picture of Jesus bleeding profusely on the Cross.
Then there is an altar upon which is a cup and pouring out over the edge was real blood flowing from a throbbing beating heart. The heart fills the cup to overflowing, the cup is elevated above the altar sprinkling Jesus' life blood upon the congregation. There was a feeling of a mixture of gratefulness to us for being in some way part of this with Him, but also such sorrow because some in this world ignore his sacrifice with coldness and indifference. It was as though we could all feel this Heart weeping for mankind.
The cup emptied itself out upon us washing us clean and strengthening us, we felt loved and able to carry on Jesus' work. the cup filled again and this time going higher it emptied itself out over our churches and clergy. The cup filled up again and went even further up to the darkest places, spilling over the lost, the forgotten and the hurting people that Jesus wished to touch with his very life blood. People in great anguish were comforted, people in great pain received healing, people in terrible situations of darkness turned to His light.
We not only partake of this sacrifice but are part of it in some way. We must pray for those who just like us he paid for so dearly with his life. We must love and encourage all who come to us.

John 14 v 6 - 7
6...“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

My people I am so grateful that all is not in vain. When I look at you I feel great gratitude at your loyalty and your love of me. You are like a prized pearl of such lustre.

Let your hearts be broken not your garments torn.   (Joel 2 v 13)

A barrier separating people from the Lord and people helping one another to get under it. Praising the Lord helping to remove the barrier.

God will never refuse us his love.

Repentance - Psalm 51

A pure and contrite heart I will not spurn.

Remove my sin, and I will be clean: wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
