The Suffering of Jesus Christ

By Apostle Tonya

And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:  Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.  John 19:17-18

The placement of the Cross of Yeshua HaMashiach, in the center, would seemingly point to be the focal point of the Crucifixion of our Blessed Redeemer. John 19:18

In the Holy Scriptures, we read of the Lord Jesus’ earthly Ministry and the warfare He endured as the jealously of the Jewish leaders of His day increased and influenced their hearts to purpose to commit to their tragic decision to oppose the Lord’s Ministry. 

It was the spirit of envy which would be used as satan’s strategy to ultimately use the Jewish leaders to Crucify the Lord Jesus.  These leaders hearts would become an easy target to host and carry out the plan of Lucifer.  Therefore, we must assume satan continued to observe the leaders as they grew in being consumed with their hatred and intimidation of Yeshua.  The jealously would become dangerous and release the heels of envy to enter in as the Lord’s miracles, fame and followers continued to spread and increase in its numbers. Most assuredly, it was the door of envy that opened during this ancient time to manifest the most tragic story ever written:  the hatred and rejection of His Majesty, the Son of God by His own.  This is most certainly something for us all to learn from for as it is written, “Jealously is cruel as the grave.” Song of Solomon 8:6

Most surely, it may be hard for some to imagine how the religious leaders during this ancient time who were consequently extremely privileged to walk side-by-side with the Son of God, refused to yield to His authority and Ministry.  It is no great wonder then why we read ofttimes our Blessed One rebuked and confronted the Pharisees for their wicked hearts.  Matthew 23:13-26. Surely, our Lord knew what was to come.

In thy Lord’s Earthly ministry, the hearts of the leaders opposing Him were full of hypocrisy. They refused to see the Blessed Master (with the great fame because of the miracles He performed) had not been sent by the Father to be their equal or even to be coronated by man.  This religious thinking whereby the Risen Lord abhorred remaineth an disturbing thorn even in the church today.  

Our lowly King, whom ofttimes the Bible records the Jewish leaders audaciously accused of blasphemy was indeed Messiah, the Word manifested in Flesh: the I AM.  Yet, in their distorted perception and commitment to their traditions of how the King of Glory would appeareth to them they walked tragically in the greatest deception recorded in their refusal to bow to the Lord Jesus. 

The Blessed Holy Spirit is faithful to revealeth to us through the Beloved Disciple John in the Book of John that the Romans positioned the Blessed Lord Jesus to be Crucified in a city where the census of the Jews was high in population. Further, we read ofttimes in righteous anger of the unstable Pilate and the title he chose to have created for our Lord, placed above the Cross: “JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS”. John 19:20. The title written in Hebrew, Greek and Latin was another part of the plan of satan to humiliate the Son of God. 

Certainly, we see the plot coming to a apogee, don’t we?  satan, would use the Jews, Romans, Caiaphas and Pilate to openly shame our Redeemer in the presence of all of the Lord’s Kinsman even as our Blessed One was dying on the Cross.  The deceiver would even conspire that thy Lord’s grave be with wicked criminals.  Yet, blessed be the Lord God Almighty for in the enemy’s limited knowledge, he did not know of The Plan of Redemption from El De’ot, our God of all Knowledge. Neither would those enemies of thy Lord who purposed in their hearts to expedite His Crucifixion during Passover.  The leaders had not been privy to the Secret in The Throne Room of God:  our Blessed Lord Jesus had chosen to give of Himself during Passover.  The Father allowed these leaders to hasten His Son’s Execution and it would be our Sovereign God, the Father of Glory who would raise His Son on the third day. 

The wicked one’s decision to prominently place the Lord in the center amongst two criminals in his attempt to disgrace the Lord Jesus was the Father’s will.  The blessed Scriptures strengthen us with the passage recorded in the Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 53 verse 10:  Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief..  Surely, nothing in this Earth, nor in the kingdom of darkness has greater power than that of Elohim, our Creator!

This I know, the disfigurement of our Redeemer’s Face marred by the hands of the enemy; The Cross, approximately 300 pounds in weight that thy Lord carried with great trauma wounds in His Soul from the scourging until He could not carry it alone any longer; The Crown of Thorns from the Lord’s Beloved Israel crowned on His Bleeding Head to further mock our Lamb of God; The Master’s Robe whereby the Word of God records was made without seam and the soldiers who used the Master’ Robe to gamble with as our Lord was Dying; was all for us.  John 3:16

Our Great Sufferer bore this traumatizing suffering for love; for us.  O what tears I shed for my Beloved One.

By Apostle Tonya

For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen. Romans 11:36

Holy One of Israel, You Who are most holy, I extol and reverence.  Loving Father, this morning, I thank You for Your relentless pursuit and love for me.

Honoring my Mother’s Legacy

By Apostle Tonya

Days before my mother’s transition to Heaven, I was led by the Blessed Holy Spirit to remaineth with her for a certain time in her blessed home filled with the aroma of prayers and her unwavering faith to be healed from a sickness whereby had afflicted her most greatly.  Thy Lord’s grace was sufficient for me to care for His Daughter during this time whereby ofttimes I became overcome in tears as I discerned the Holy Presence surrounding my mother was most unusual.  Those precious days spent doing my mother’s hair and dressing her would become our final days together on Earth.  

My dearest mother, my first best-friend and spiritual mother lived a joyous and abundant life for the Lord Jesus whom she pleased.  Mother answered every telephone call with a song exalting our Blessed Master.  She most enjoyed worshipping thy Lord and reading the Holy Bible wherefore her Friend, our Risen Lord bestowed a generous grace of wisdom upon her to teach.  Today, October 27th is the anniversary of my beloved mother’s birthday.

It has been quite some years since my beloved mother departed this Earth for her Heavenly Home.  Yet, I must say for me a long season of mourning was spent.  I am most thankful to our Blessed Master, our Healer who healed my broken-heart from the unexpected transition of my mother to His Everlasting Arms years ago.  And, I giveth our Risen Lord the praise, glory and honor for giving her a special life wherefore I remaineth most honored to cherish and remember.  Amen.

Working with Angels

By Apostle Tonya

Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. The Book of Psalms 103:20

In a most strategic season above nine years ago, our Blessed Majesty was most faithful to send one of His Daughters to serve me whom our Lord also Spake to; to giveth me encouragement.  On one occasion, on what was during a most delightful telephone conversation our Blessed Holy Spirit gave His Daughter pivotal instructions for me whereby changed the trajectory of my life in the spirit to a most adventurous and also quiet life living in the supernatural.   

The holy instructions came with a marvelous favor of a glorious vision bestowed upon her whereby thy Lord’s Daughter saw Holy Angels whom were assigned to minister to me but were waiting on my commands in prayer to help me.  Thereafter, our Dearest Comforter was most faithful to entereth me into a season whereby He began to supervise me on how to “Work with Angels”. 

Marvelously it has now becometh a most splendid life whereby Heaven continueth to invade in with the most holy worship in the ministry.  I am in awe of our Holy Lord Jesus and surely, I am not worthy. Yet, ofttimes on occasions even during a trip outdoors our Excellent Glory desires to be glorified upon me supernaturally and life have ofttimes become like a blessed visit to Heaven’s amusement park.

May our Blessed Lord lead you to listen to last week’s episode on Holy Podcast on “Working with Angels” whereby during the teaching His glory rested. Amen.

Morning Prayer

By Apostle Tonya

Blessed Master, I beseech You to filleth Your Children with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding according to Colossians 1:9. Generous Lord, may You giveth them provision for the vision for their businesses, ministries, and churches.   And, Holy Lord may You also remember to send those to serve Your faithful leaders and causeth them to prosper in all their ways.  

I declare they shall receive double for their seasons of shame and dishonor as it is in Isaiah 61:7.  I bless You Wonderful Lord for Your Answers.  In Your Holy Name I pray, Amen.

The Anointing Oil

By Apostle Tonya

In the Holy Bible, we read of the magnificent history of our Blessed Master’s faithfulness and obedience to our most Holy Father and of our Lord’s fervency in prayer and supplications in His Earthly Ministry.  In the blessed Book of Hebrews, Chapter five, verses seven through eight it is recorded our Eternal Savior offered up His prayers and supplications with strong tears.  Surely, our Risen Lord’s most perfect Heart was filled with reverence for His Father.  This is most marvelously recorded in the Scriptures for our encouragement and to teach us on how to offer prayers to our Holy Lord wherewith are Heard and invariably Answered. 

In Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, the word hiketéria is defined as “Supplication”.  It is most interesting that the word usage for hiketéria is “the olive branch held in the hand of the suppliant” and another reference is defined as “earnest supplication for peace and relief”. 

Therefore, we must be encouraged that it is in this blessed place of abiding in prayer wherefore when we humble ourselves before our Holy Father and offer our sacrifices of righteousness in supplications that we entereth into the Throne Room of God.  Surely, it is seated in the Heavenly Places before our Holy One when His Merciful Heart Hearest us beg for healing while tightly holding onto the olive branch that we receiveth the anointing upon us for peace, and to deliver and heal us from the oppression of sickness and disease.  

I pray our Generous Father poureth out His blessed anointing upon you as you plead with Him in the Secret Place for your peace and healing.  Amen. 

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

The Holy of Holies

By Apostle Tonya

But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitidue of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. Psalm 5:7

The Holy Father most desire to have intimacy with His Children.  Our Lord deserves our hearts to be intentional with our seeking of Him. Most surely, we must be still and careful in His Holy Presence to giveth Him reverence and honor.  During this holy time of worship with our Lord we should be focused and poureth our love on Him; singing and making melody in our hearts to our Holy Lord. The Spirit of God is also faithful to giveth us a Scripture to meditate on in the Presence. One of the Scriptures, our Lord gave to me in 2018 in His will for me to ascend to a higher place in the realm of the spirit is recorded in The Book of Psalms, Chapter 68, verse 8:

“The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.” 

There in our Holy Father’s Presence, He shall be most kind to also bestow revelation of His Character; for our Lord desires a glorious relationship with us on Earth.  In this blessed place of splendor and marvelous wonder with the Father we becometh to know that He is invariably generous and He giveth to us precious treasures from Heaven. The treasures from Heaven shall cause us to grow in our pure and holy fellowship with Him and we are expected from our Holy Lord to use it to edify His Church.
