123 Churches Took Down the Cross Over the Easter Holiday
April 22, 2003
A truly profound moment in history has occurred. 123 clergy took down their crosses over the Easter weekend. This was supported by another 135 clergy who attended services participating and in accord with this dispensation. All told, 258 clergy directly affirmed the taking down of the cross proclaiming an end the era of bloodshed and sacrifice and the beginning of a new era of faith and resurrection.
We thank God and True Parents for the conditions that allowed this to unfold. We sincerely wish thank Jesus and celebrate this true day of resurrection in which the representatives of the Second Israel are now fully understanding and preaching a clear message explaining as to why Jesus wept at Gethsemane and why he sweat blood.
With this tearful realization, the Second Israel is setting the condition to come forward in faith to take down the cross. They are receiving Heaven's confirmation that this is the direction Jesus himself is initiating. Why? Because it is the time of his return and it is also the time of building God's Kingdom on the Earth.
Therefore through the Blessing of Marriage and sharing the communion cup together as husband and wife the fulfillment of scripture in I Peter 5:4 is coming to pass. "And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away."
This scripture is moving the heart of Christianity. Its time now to receive our crowns. In Houston, Rev. Bennit H. put up a crown for a King and one for a Queen in place of the cross that he and his clergy and church took down. The Coronation of True Parents as King and Queen of all blessed families opened this historical door. That's why our Christian leaders feel absolutely sure that they are to be blessed in marriage and receive the "Crown of Glory". Many more are following in this historic course.
We thank Jesus for this victory and see this as a major turning point in the heart of our Christian family. (Many testimonies are posted on the Familyfed.org website).
As each pastor steps forward in faith a deep sense of confirmation is given to them by the Holy Spirit. With this they become deeply confident. The scripture is solid in revealing that Israel should have believed in the Lord. John 6:28-29 "Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent."
As Bishop C. Phillip Johnson and Rev. Dr. H.G. McGhee gave a crown to each member of New Prospect Family PraiseBishop J.enter at the Good Friday service, it was special moment. Dr. McGhee stated, "There was a jubilant flavor of victory as the people of God exchanged their cross for a crown." In turn, led by Dr. McGhee, a blessed Christian pastor, they crowned enter at the Good Friday service, it was special moment. Dr. McGhee stated, "There was a jubilant flavor of victory as the people of God exchanged their cross for a crown." In turn, led by Dr. McGhee, a blessed Christian pastor, they crowned Bishop J. and Mrs. Johnson with great celebration. Rev. In Hoi Lee reported sincerely, "this wa and Mrs. Johnson with great celebration. Rev. In Hoi Lee reported sincerely, "this waBishop J.piring experience I've ever had in in Christian fellowship." Then a crown (on a 4 ft. x 3 ft. full color high gloss photo) was unveiled to replace the cross that was taken down that night by the members and Christian leaders, who were led by piring experience I've ever had in in Christian fellowship." Then a crown (on a 4 ft. x 3 ft. full color high gloss photo) was unveiled to replace the cross that was taken down that night by the members and Christian leaders, who were led by Bishop J. and Dr. McGhee. Dr. McGhee said, "The picture the "Crown of Glory" now hangs as a monument to victory for all to see the mighty works of God. Above the crown are hands folded in prayer and doves symbolizing peace. Now we are proclaiming an end of the era of war and time for peace and reconciliation has now dawned."
In teaching concerning the cross. Bishop J. said that as we are now Blessed and moving b said that as we are now Blessed and moving bBishop J.s to the Kingdom we are reminded in the scripture in 1 John 3:2: "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is." s to the Kingdom we are reminded in the scripture in 1 John 3:2: "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is." Bishop J. goes on to teach that because Jesus has revealed the Lord has returned we are now becoming like him. We are becoming blessed and standing as Kings and Queens. We are becoming like him, little Messiahs.
Without a doubt it was God's will that Israel would receive the Messiah. That is why the Second Israel (now having received the Lord in Glory) must now journey to the First Israel to humbly serve and love our elder Brother and reconcile and restore the past history in which Jesus was not received. The scripture in John 1:11-12 says, He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name."
Now that the Second Israel has received him in his Second Coming they are receiving a power like unto the time of the Pentecost, 2000 years ago. That is why Father has predicted that the when crosses come down a revival unlike anything in history will break out among the Christian family. The ACLC is in the center of this dispensational revival and world changing movement.
This is the unfolding of God's dispensation.
Thanks for your sacrifice and your prayers to allow this Easter to truly be the day of Resurrection.
