What Would Jesus Undo
WORSHIPING FACEDOWN Worship can only be fuelled by revelation. True revelation of God brings us into a place of reverent awe of Him and an understanding of who we are in the light of who He is. Although facedown is a physical posture where the worshiper prostrates before God, it is a spiritual position we must live day in and day out of reverent submission of His Kingship. Facedown is a symbol of total surrender and helplessness. The King identifies with His subjects when they are bowed down at His arrival and He looks on at all that belongs to Him. When we worship God, we must reverence him in revelation of how mighty He is and how insignificant we are. God is the King of the universe and all creation inevitably bows down before His Majesty. Jesus is the King of all Kings and Lord of all Lords (Rev 17:14, 19:16,) and the scripture says that “One day, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess to Him (Isa 45:23, Rom 14:11, Phi 2:10).” That is the future.

The Pathway of Peter!
Have you been changed? Have you ever been changed before? Where you experienced something that changed your life? Sometimes these are good things, sometimes they are bad. What was it? a class, book, concert, conversation, speaker, camp, love at first sight? Was it a car crash, the loss of a loved one,…
Neither Barren, Nor Unfruitful
The series of lessons called Neither Barren, Nor Unfruitful will look at things we should lay aside from 1 Peter 2:1-2, and things we should take on from 2 Peter 1:5-8, in order that we should be neither barren, nor unfruitful for our Master. This lesson looks at the idea of laying aside malice, and getting our mind right.
The Power of Grace Grace compensates for human weaknesses 2 Co 12:8–9 ; 1 Pet 5:10 See also 1 Co 2:1–5 ; 2 Co 9:8 ; Heb 2:14 ; Heb 4:15 ; Heb 5:2 ; Jas 4:6 ; 2 Pe 3:17–18 8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee:…
