Monday, April 14, 2014:
Jesus said: “My people, this is the start of Holy Week when you commemorate My death and Resurrection. The Gospel speaks of Lazarus’ house that I visited, and there is a touching scene when Mary washed My feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. Then she anointed My feet with an expensive nard oil which I said was in anticipation of My burial. The Jewish leaders were plotting to kill Me and Lazarus for My miracle of raising him from the dead. I had told Mary and Martha that I am the ‘Resurrection and the Life’, and all those who believe in Me, will have eternal life. As you go through the services this week, drink in the love I have for all of you, that I would give up My life so all of you could be freed from the bonds of your sins.”

Jesus said: “My people, the remembrance of My death on the cross is not a defeat, but it is My sacrifice that saved all of mankind who accepts Me. This service for Good Friday is very somber, and sad when the candle lights are snuffed out to symbolize My death. Many good things require suffering and hard work to gain them, but in salvation, I am the only One to suffer. I am the only unblemished Lamb worthy to be sacrificed to gain your salvation. Give glory and praise to Me for My gift of salvation that you will celebrate on Easter Sunday. Come to the Holy Week services to have a taste of how I suffered.”
