Sometimes we think that the death of Jesus is the most important part of Jesus’ life, but the most important part of his life is the resurrection. Jesus tells us that if we don’t take up our cross and follow Him, then we cannot be with Him. Jesus’ resurrection was the most important moment in the history of the universe. He not only raised from the grave, but HE IS the resurrection.
James tells us that faith is work and work is faith. The word anointing was first used in the Bible in reference to craftsmen. As a church, we are called to work in the anointing so that our work becomes Christ-like. We each have a distinct calling, and when we discover that calling and walk accordingly, money will come to us instead of searching after money. Your excellence of work will bring you before kings.
Jesus told his apostles “I give you the keys of the Kingdom.” We are part of the eternal Kingdom. These are keys that will help you to live the kingdom lifestyle, learning meekness and humility from Jesus, operating in rest and bearing fruit to the glory of God.
The church is not merely the house of God. It is the gate of heaven! That is the entry point into heaven. God’s presence is there. No matter how hard or dark your situation might be, God’s presence will never leave you if you are part of a church. He will give you a dream that will change your life and change the place where you are.
Our work has to do with the restoration of all things to the church and to the King of the Church Jesus Christ. Our work is spiritual.
When our work is done He will fetch us and we will meet Him in the air and be with him forever in the new heaven and the new earth where righteousness dwells.
We see it even though it seems afar off, we embrace it and we confess that we are strangers and pilgrims on this earth like our faith parents Abraham and Sarah and we will not be the last but the first to bring back the king by His grace through faith.

In the battle of Thermopylae where the 300 Spartans along with a few thousands Greeks withstood the 70,000 -100,000 Persians is the stuff of legends and has inspired many armies to face the odds and win.

Let’s look at some of the reasons for Abraham’s success in war and why he and Sarah were called a father and mother of faith and of nations.
