and foremost in my soul is not just prayers for the African orphans of our
sister ministry with Pastor Steven Mwesigwa at Hope & Joy Ministries.
God will bless this ministry with gifts of money. It is up to
you, dear brothers and sisters, to turn around and give some of it back to the
church. Please pray that God trusts you to be blessed, so that you can in turn
be a blessing to others.
Steven Mwesigwa also asks for protection against “BISAKA OWOBUSOBOZI,” who
calls himself God and “channels people to his evil work.” It sounds like all

feast of the Jews,the Feast of

Hisbrothers said to Him, “Leave

also may see Your works which You are doing.

when Hisbrothers had gone up to
the feast, then He Himself also went up, not publicly, but as if, in secret.

was much grumbling among the crowds concerning Him;some were saying, “He is a good man;”
others were saying, “No, on the contrary, He leads the people astray.”
This is the Word of the Lord.
a nice group of brothers Christ had, that they wanted him to travel to Judea to
“make himself known” and get into the public eye. Do you think they were being
nice? Do you think they had Christ’s best interests in mind? Do you think
Christ was hiding from them?
is as if they said this tantalizingly, with glazed eyes for Christ to become a
‘Pop Star.’ It implies that their intentions were not good, as they insisted
more than once that He go to the Judea with them.
in return, Christ knew the intentions of their heart. He didn’t say, “I know
you just want me to get caught and killed.” No, he said the truth and yet was
still politically correct. He said, “My time is not yet here...” (Verses 1 -

Again, He tells His brothers to go without Him (verse
7), and reiterates again that he will stay in Galilee (verse 8). He had no
intention of telling them that He was going to Judea, but He did do it
secretly, away from the public eye. So did Christ tell a lie? (verses 9-10).
And at this Feast of the Booths in Judea, men
were grumbling (again), arguing about whether he was a good man or whether He
led the people astray (verses 11 – 12).

ordered by his brothers as to whether or not He should go to Judea, or not. He
already knew that the public were grumbling against Him, seeking for His death.
He lie to his brothers when He said he would stay in Galilee,
and yet He did secretly travel to Judea? We don’t know the intentions of His
heart at the moment that He was asked this question, so there is no way for us
to judge Him by reading His mind. Since He is God, I believe that He did not
tell a lie, but afterwards, thought about it a little more, and was led by God
to go ahead and make the trip secretly, since the time of His death was not
now. It would come up soon enough.
And Christ knew the Plan. Does Christ lead your

PREPARATION FOR HOLY COMMUNION: Until I studied it myself, I did not realize how
seriously God judges us for taking Holy Communion. It is Holy.
We are not to take it if we
are sinning, or it is blasphemy against OURSELVES and the Lord. I encourage you
not to take Holy Communion until

CLOSING PRAYER BY KIRSTIE: Dear Lord, we bow our heads in respect of
many veterans and the many men and women that have served for our countries. Let
their families find the love, strength and courage they need to carry on with
their lives. Let their loved ones always be remembered as heroes now they do
not feel the soil under their feet anymore. Let their families have NO MORE
TEARS now; their loved ones are at peace in NO MORE PAIN and in the hands of
the Lord himself.

fighting for their lives in hospitals. We pray together today for all the

also thank you Lord for our loved ones today. We pray all our families find the
strength, love and courage to carry on with their day to day lives. Lord may we
all be blessed by Your hands up on our souls as we all face our day to day lives.
We pray for our family and friends to be blessed and touched by your hands. We
also pray that Pastor Steven gets some more donations to feed OUR orphans in
Africa, so that our children can have the medication, shoes and clothes they
desperately need. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen!
