“God greatly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the Name
that is above every name, that at the Name of Jesus
every knee should bend, of those in heaven
and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
(Philippians 2:9-11)

Please listen to a prayerful meditation on the Cross


Excerpt from New Covenant Power Album by our Mother Foundress


“If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.” (Lk 9:23)

I was drawn to the passage in the Gospel of John, which reads, “Little children, it is the final hour”
(1 Jn 2:18). We are in the final hour today, and the final confrontation has begun. We have the power to face it head on. This power comes from the Spirit. It is in the meek, loving, obedient little Lamb of God Who comes in power because of a simple “yes”. “Be it done unto me according to Thy Word” (Lk 1:38). The Lamb is always upon the altar of sacrifice and that altar is now within our hearts.

There is a consecration that goes on within our hearts because we are a priestly people, as Peter tells us in 1 Peter 2:5. By virtue of our Baptism, we are called to offer spiritual sacrifices, consecrated by the Spirit. The Spirit Himself will let me know what sacrifices (yeses) He desires from day to day. They can be very simple, yet so powerful. It is as simple as hearing form the Lord, and then responding with the words that allow His power to shine forth, “Yes, Lord!”

This is the power of the New Covenant Blood. The power comes when we allow ourselves to be consecrated by the Spirit to a life of obedience. Our affirmative response, “Yes, Lord,” will bring us to deeper intimacy with God each time. If He has not taught you this, He certainly will.

In Luke 22:19, we hear Jesus’ words to us, “Do this in memory of Me.” What He is referring to is sacrifice. He recalls His sacrifice for us and calls us, in turn, to lay down our lives and die to self, with each “yes”. Jesus once said that He had the power to lay down His life, and the power to take it up again (cf. Jn 10:18). We too have the power to lay down our lives and the power to rise again, in Him. It is a win-win all around.

“They cried out in a loud voice: ‘Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches, wisdom and strength, honor and glory and blessing.’” (Rev 5:12)
