An honor that didn’t appear to be an honor…..


“A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing

by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the cross. “

Mark 15:21

 

It’s Passover week and what a significant week it is.

The Passover is not just a Jewish holiday but it’s a holiday for the entire body of Christ.

It is the Lord’s festival! (Exodus 12:1-14)

I pray and hope you are aware that Easter is not

our holiday. It’s a pagan holiday. I won’t go into it much but what I will do is ask you to search.

There is loads of information about the origins of Easter.

Please don’t take my word for it. Go search for it. After that, make a decision.

Here is one link but there is more, so much more! Click here.

 

I want to take the time to talk about Simon

who was graced with one of the greatest honor’s which at the time didn’t appear to be.

The Roman soldiers thought they were disgracing him but they were so wrong.

Simon was forced to carry the cross for Yeshua!

 

The world thinks we are crazy for following the Lord but it’s our greatest honor!

On this Passover week I want to remind you to take up your cross daily!

It’s our honor not a disgrace.

Is it easy carrying our cross daily? No!

 

As I close I want to leave you with an article that really ministered to me.

I hope you will be ministered as you read it.

The man who carried the cross of Yeshua!

God bless you

Carry Your Cross???


Happy new year to you all!!!! This is going to be a great year. With that in mind I would like to speak about what the cross means to us especially in 2013. What comes to mind when you think of the cross?

It is interesting to note that if you asked anyone in Jesus’ time what it meant they would tell you death! The cross meant death. There was nothing good about the cross.

Jesus tells us to carry our cross, but what does that mean?

Do understand that the cross means death today!!!

A lot of people don’t truly understand what the cross really means. The cross means death to the flesh but life to the spirit. We cannot give in to what the flesh wants. We cannot keep on feeding it if we want God’s best. I have been so challenged by this word as well. As we look forward in the New Year let us carry our cross. The cross signifies death but at the same time life in the spirit! let us aim to have a spirit filled 2013!!!!
