John 18:5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus said to them, I am [he]. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
John 18:7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek you? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
John 18:8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am [he]: if therefore you seek me, let these go their way:
Note: Jesus identified himself saying "I am" and everyone fell to the ground. Taking care of His disciples shows He remained their leader.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us your identity as much as possible and all you skills to handle pressure.
Matthew 26:55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are you come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and you laid no hold on me.
Mark 14:48 And Jesus answered and said to them, Are you come out, as against a thief, with swords and [with] staves to take me?
Mark 14:49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and you took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.
Note: Jesus reminds them He could easily escape as before, except this time He lets them take Him to fulfill scripture.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us your ability to teach, escape, and fulfill scriptures.
Bride Prayer: Jesus you are the ultimate master, taking care of your believers, protecting them and fulfilling scripture so more may believe. In our days also free us from persecution by evil people who deny you providing us with your ability to escape when we teach them as you did, yet fulfill the scriptures.
Luke 22:52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be you come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
Luke 22:53 When I was daily with you in the temple, you stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
Note: Experientially the power of darkness results from the prayers of those unenlightened by or disobedient to Jesus Christ.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us your light and power over darkness and those who live it yet let your will always be done.
April 7, 33 am - Jerusalem, to Caiaphas - for defending Himself legally, through witnesses
John 18:20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.
John 18:21 Why ask you me? ask them which heard me, what I have said to them: behold, they know what I said.
Note: Jesus judged the unrighteous prosecutor, telling him to ask witnesses instead of asking Him to testify against himself.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us your wisdom in dealing with authorities.
April 7, 33 am - Jerusalem, to officer - for verbal defense against unjust physical violence
John 18:23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why strike you me?
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us your words to overcome the violent.
Bride Prayer: They came against you as a thief because of the power of darkness, Jesus. Keep us always from darkness and unjust violence!
April 7, 33 am - Jerusalem, to Caiaphas - for discounting accusation instead prophesying of His return to earth and Israel
Matthew 26:64 Jesus said to him, You have said: nevertheless I say to you, Hereafter shall you see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
Mark 14:62 And Jesus said, I am: and you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
Note: Jesus as the Son of man opens the possibility for us to participate in His divinity which is supremely above the power of his accusers.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us the power to prophecy concerning all things as you teach us.
April 7, 33 - Jerusalem, elder priest scribe - for answering judgment by the religious authority
Luke 22:67 Art you the Christ? tell us. And he said to them, If I tell you, you will not believe:
Luke 22:68 And if I also ask [you], you will not answer me, nor let [me] go.
Luke 22:69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.
Luke 22:70 Then said they all, Art you then the Son of God? And he said to them, You say that I am.
Note: Elders don’t believe, answer, or let Jesus go, tempting Him like the devil did. Yet they’ll also see the Son of man sit with God.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us the man child to sit on the right hand of God.
Bride Prayer: Jesus help us see the power of God and cooperate willingly with you. Keep us from being evil and unbelieving authorities.

Luke 23:3 And Pilate asked him, saying, Art you the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, You say [it].
John 18:34 Jesus answered him, Say you this thing of yourself, or did others tell it you of me?
Note: Had Pilate originated the thought it might have been knowledge inspired of the Father but from others it was mere political interest.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us inspired knowledge of you.
John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to fight to cast Satan out of heaven and expand your kingdom from heaven to earth including building the New Jerusalem.
Bride Prayer: Jesus guide us to be wise as you when confronted by legal authorities and completely understand your kingdom including how to fight for it.
John 18:37 Pilate therefore said to him, Art you a king then? Jesus answered, You say that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Every one that is of the truth hears my voice.
Note: Jesus is the king of Truth which all true people hear by the Spirit. Truth is, Jesus perfectly unites the spiritual divine and physical worldly realms as son of God and son of man.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us to be kings of your perfect Truth.
John 19:11 Jesus answered, You could have no power [at all] against me, except it were given you from above: therefore he that delivered me to you has the greater sin.
Note: This shows the high priest was the greatest sinner, more than the secular authority, much as is the case today with Paul's elders and pastors running the world. MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to identify and overcome evil religious people and thier servants, religious and secular. April 7, 33 - Golgotha, at the Crucifixion - for dealing with judgment by God the Father

Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Note: Jesus cries out at the loss of his experience of the Father due to taking the sins & death of the world.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us constant experience of the Father and your righteousness.
Luke 23:28 But Jesus turning to them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
Luke 23:29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed [are] the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to see the future as you do and react accordingly.
Bride Prayer: Jesus, you are king of truth, the kingdom above all. You lost Father's presence by taking all sin onto the cross. Let us avoid war keeping in your resurrected presence and kingdom.
Luke 23:30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
Luke 23:31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
Note: Jesus' presence signifies the green of life and Israel the fig tree - Jesus cursed the fig tree so it dried up and Israel became a desert (until restored). His words suggest worse behavior than falsely accusing and killing Him will occur in His absence.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to love you in all circumstances.
Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
Luke 23:43 And Jesus said to him, Verily I say to you, To day shall you be with me in paradise.
Note: Jesus forgives the soldiers and blesses the righteous thief.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to forgive the unrighteous theives and bless the righteous as you do.
John 19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he said to his mother, Woman, behold your son!
Note: Jesus has his mother adopt John whom Jesus loved and John adopt his mother.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to righeously make families to take care of each other.
Bride Prayer: Keep us from appealing to nature instead of you, Jesus. Also keep us from persecution and robbery as they did to you. Bring us into paradise within so we enjoy being dead to the world in you. Bring us into the relationships you want us in. Amen.
John 19:27 Then said he to the disciple, Behold your mother! And from that hour that disciple took her to his own [home].
John 19:28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said, I thirst.
John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into your hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
Note: Jesus takes final insult, vinegar for water, and gives up his spirit as an all-inclusive death, breaking the power of Satan and redeeming creation with His resurrection life
MC Prayer: Yeshua take our spirit when we die.
MINISTRY AFTER RESURRECTION April 9, 33 - sepulcher, to Mary Magdalene - to appear asking Mary to tell His brothers of His ascending to His Father
John 20:15 Jesus said to her, Woman, why weep you? whom seek you? She, supposing him to be the gardener, said to him, Sir, if you have borne him hence, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.
John 20:16 Jesus said to her, Mary. She turned herself, and said to him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to care for you in your absence and recognize you when you are present.
Bride Prayer: Help us remember to properly care for our families as you did. Keep us in you even when given vinegar instead of water. Receive our spirits when we die as the Father received you. Resurrect and send us to speak to the living after we're dead if it be your will Jesus.
John 20:17 Jesus said to her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say to them, I ascend to my Father, and your Father; and [to] my God, and your God.
Note: Jesus ascended to the Father, returned that evening, and remained for 40 days then ascended publicly, leaving His work to His friends. His death on the cross and resurrection available to us in Spirit is effective magnifying our divine perfection as we receive them. Jesus didn't want His resurrected being to be defiled before ascending to the Father.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us awareness of when a touch will defile us and to ascend to the Father so we can be fully restored to your work.
April 9, 33 - near sepulcher, other women - to appear, making arrangements to meet in Galilee
Matthew 28:9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
Matthew 28:10 Then Jesus said to them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
April 9, 33 - Emmaus, to two Disciples - for appearing to and correcting the apostles
Luke 24:17 And he said to them, What manner of communications [are] these that you have one to another, as you walk, and are sad?
Luke 24:19 And he said to them, What things? And they said to him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:
Note: Jesus asks the disciples why they are sad - the disciples who knew Jesus in flesh don't recognize Him in Spirit, expressing the power of resurrection life.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to speak your truth instead of being sad, and recognize and rejoice at your presence.
Bride Prayer: Guide us into touching you properly, ascending with you as brothers, worshipping and meeting at your appointed place Jesus. Keep us recognizing your presence instead of being sad in speaking of your mighty words and deeds.
Luke 24:25 Then he said to them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
Luke 24:26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
Note: Jesus chides and encourages two disciples because of their slow perception and belief in His resurrection.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to be smart and quick to believe all the prophets have spoken about you.
April 9, 33 - Jerusalem, to ten Disciples - for appearing to and charging them to preach what they saw of Him, in His name in all nations
Luke 24:36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, Peace [be] to you.
John 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first [day] of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and said to them, Peace [be] to you.
Note: Jesus entered the room by the Holy Spirit since crucifixion cut through the power dividing His flesh and Spirit as the rending of the veil in the temple portrays.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to enter shut rooms and bring your peace to people assembled there.
Luke 24:38 And he said to them, Why are you troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit has not flesh and bones, as you see me have.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to know others trouble thoughts and console them with your complete presence.
Bride Prayer: Jesus help us quickly believe in you and all the prophets have spoken. Keep us experiencing your peace to the extent you do so our flesh may also be completely surrendered to the Holy Spirit enabling us to follow you everywhere you go. Let us handle you so no troubling thoughts arise.
Luke 24:41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said to them, Have you here any meat?
Luke 24:44 And he said to them, These [are] the words which I spake to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and [in] the prophets, and [in] the psalms, concerning me.
Note: Jesus gave prophecy to fulfill proving He is God. Likewise we must fulfill all things of His true believers the apostles and overcomers, His brothers and son, the man-child.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to know all the law, prophets, and psalms concerning you as you know them.
Luke 24:46 And said to them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
Note: We must pray-teach repentance and remission of sins in Jesus' name in all nations. Empty teaching doesn't work, it must be full of the Spirit by prayer. Prayer is the only way most believers can bring His word to the whole world.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to preach to all nations concerning you.
Luke 24:48 And you are witnesses of these things.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to witness you at all times.
Bride Prayer: Make us believe you in joy, respond instantly to your requests, and fulfill the meat of your prophecies written for us Jesus including preaching repentance and remission of sins as we witness you working these things by your life and power in and through us.
Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry you in the city of Jerusalem, until you be endued with power from on high.
John 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace [be] to you: as [my] Father has sent me, even so send I you.
John 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on [them], and said to them, Receive you the Holy Ghost:
John 20:23 Whose soever sins you remit, they are remitted to them; [and] whose soever [sins] you retain, they are retained.
Note: Jesus had them wait to calm them before bringing them peace then breathed on them the Holy Spirit for them to breath in to reconstitute their whole beings into sons of the Father or God men with the power to remit (forgive) and retain other's sins.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us power, peace, sending, the Holy Spirit and guidance in forgiving or retaining other's sins.
April 16, 33 - Jerusalem, eleven Disciples - for revealing himself as fully resurrected
John 20:26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: [then] came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace [be] to you.
Note: Jesus appeared and disappeared to train the apostles to practice His presence always, which helps us grow spiritually toward Him.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to appear and disappear giving peace like you do.
April 16, 33 - Jerusalem, to Thomas - to eliminate doubt in His resurrection
John 20:27 Then said he to Thomas, Reach here your finger, and behold my hands; and reach here your hand, and thrust [it] into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to believe you with faith.
Bride Prayer: Jesus we live awaiting the power for fulfillment of your promise of peace, apostleship, and Holy Spirit. Thank you for giving us the power to remit and retain sins -- help us use it according to your wisdom and will. Help us have faith in you without doubting but please have mercy and guide us in detail if we do doubt.
John 20:29 Jesus said to him, Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed [are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed.
April, 33 - Sea of Galilee, seven Disciples - to reveal his resurrection as normal life
John 21:5 Then Jesus said to them, Children, have you any meat? They answered him, No.
Note: Having nothing to eat shows their faith had backslidden after Jesus' death.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to believe you without seeing you including faith to have meat.
John 21:6 And he said to them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and you shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
John 21:10 Jesus said to them, Bring of the fish which you have now caught.
John 21:12 Jesus said to them, Come [and] dine. And none of the disciples dare ask him, Who art you? knowing that it was the Lord.
Note: Casting the net on the right side of the ship (signifying church) is to preach seeking Jesus who is perfect instead of seeking the left side with liberal imperfections, contradictions, and prostitutions.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to preach to the right people.
Bride Prayer: Build in us full belief in you Jesus, even though we haven't seen you. Teach us how to find and catch the fish you want us to and bring them to your feast.
April, 33 - Sea of Galilee, to Simon Peter - for loving and following Jesus even through death
John 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter, Simon, [son] of Jonas, love you me more than these? He said to him, Yea, Lord; you know that I love you. He said to him, Feed my lambs.
John 21:16 He said to him again the second time, Simon, [son] of Jonas, love you me? He said to him, Yea, Lord; you know that I love you. He said to him, Feed my sheep.
John 21:17 He said to him the third time, Simon, [son] of Jonas, love you me? Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, Love you me? And he said to him, Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you. Jesus said to him, Feed my sheep.
Note: We must really love Jesus, declaring our love for Him, overcoming past denial, and feed spiritual life to His people.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to really love you and feed your sheep with you, not other ministries.
John 21:18 Verily, verily, I say to you, When you wast young, you girded yourself, and walked whither you would: but when you shall be old, you shall stretch forth your hands, and another shall gird you, and carry [you] whither you would not.
John 21:19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he said to him, Follow me.
John 21:22 Jesus said to him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what [is that] to you? Follow you me.
Note: We should follow Jesus directly, not contingent on His will for anyone else or their example.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to follow you regardless of what death awaits or what others do.
Bride Prayer: Make us love you and feed your sheep Jesus. Show us how to go and be carried where you will for us to be, following you.
May 18, 33 - Mt. Olivet, eleven Disciples - for spreading the gospel everywhere
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake to them, saying, All power is given to me in heaven and in earth.
Note: Being given all power implies the authority to use it, making Jesus equal with the Father as God over heaven, earth, and the people therein.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us all power in heaven and in earth.
Matthew 28:19 Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Mark 16:15 Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, [even] to the end of the world. Amen.
Note: Jesus sends believers to convert the whole world into His Kingdom, which is mainly done by prayer. Every believer through prayer should send their spirit to preach to all the world, baptizing every creature in the Holy Spirit.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to preach you to teach all nations and every creature all your commandments.
Mark 16:16 He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to believe you and be baptized into you.
Bride Prayer: Connect us to your power, sending us to teach your words to all nations, baptizing them and preaching to every creature. Always stay with us and help everyone believe, be baptized, and be saved.
Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Mark 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Note: Miracles of casting out devils, new tongues, and health will follow believers. Experientially this level of belief requires much more intense than usual prayer. It follows that even more intense prayer will lead to greater miracles including receiving the Spirit's transformation beyond new tongues to new bodies and ascension to God's throne.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us all the benefits of your power to preach, heal, and be transfigured like you.
To Disciples (who remained praying) - for guidance in waiting for the Spirit to empower witnessing for Jesus
Acts 1:4 And, being assembled together with [them], commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, [said he], you have heard of me.
Acts 1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

Note: Wait for the promised power of the Holy Spirit and you’ll witness of Jesus to all the earth.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us the power of the Holy Spirit to witness to you in all parts of the earth.
Bride Prayer: Jesus bring us into truly serious prayer so we can experience your miracles, empowering our sharing of you with the whole earth.
To Paul (who persecuted saints to serve God) - for conversion, brotherly acceptance, boldness, persecution, suffering revealing His grace
Acts 9:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why persecute you me?
Acts 9:5 And he said, Who art you, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom you persecute: [it is] hard for you to kick against the pricks.
Acts 9:6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt you have me to do? And the Lord [said] to him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told you what you must do.
Note: Jesus confronts Paul from heaven for his persecutions, putting Paul's spiritual blindness into his body so Paul could understand he was wrong. Paul calls Him Lord. Jesus inspires Paul by having Paul go receive from a member so believers could accept Paul who had persecuted them and so Paul would accept them as a supply of true divine life.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to love you, not fight you and corrupt your church, prostituting it like Paul did.
Acts 9:10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I [am here], Lord.

Acts 9:15 But the Lord said to him, Go your way: for he is a chosen vessel to me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
Acts 9:16 For I will show him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.
Note: Jesus speaks in visions to connect Ananias and Paul who regained his sight but lost much of it again (a thorn in his flesh, great letters written by hand), after he set up elders (Acts 14) -- which subtly persecute true believers as Paul had openly which caused Jesus to punish him with his original full blindness.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to follow you and do your perfect will perfectly.
Acts 11:16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.
Acts 18:9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not your peace:
Acts 18:10 For I am with you, and no man shall set on you to hurt you: for I have much people in this city.
Note: Jesus continues to speak in visions to Paul showing spiritual sight is more important than physical.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to be baptized in the Holy Spirit to always hear and obey you without fear.
Bride Prayer: Jesus give us visions speaking to enable us to follow you everywhere, be chosen by you to bear your name, be baptized with the Holy Spirit, speak, and be protected by you and your people.
Acts 20:35 I have showed you all things, how that so laboring you ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Note: One who has resources enabling giving has been blessed more than those in need and giving can inspire a greater spiritual blessing from the receiver.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us abundant supply of your faith and Spirit to give to others and support the weak.
Acts 22:7 And I fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to me, Saul, Saul, why persecute you me?
Acts 22:8 And I answered, Who art you, Lord? And he said to me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you persecute.
Acts 22:10 And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said to me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told you of all things which are appointed for you to do.
Acts 22:18 And saw him saying to me, Make haste, and get you quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive your testimony concerning me.
Note: Jesus helps Saul warning of potential persecution.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to never persecute you like Saul or prostitute you like Paul. Lead us to do everything you tell us.
Bride Prayer: Jesus help us remember your words, that it is better to give than receive and make us not persecute you or your believers. Lead us to fulfill your plan to which you appointed us and keep us from wasting time in places that won't receive your word.
Acts 22:21 And he said to me, Depart: for I will send you far hence to the Gentiles.
Acts 23:11 And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as you have testified of me in Jerusalem, so must you bear witness also at Rome.
Note: Jesus approves Paul's witness which is speaking according to real life spiritual experiences of Christ instead of rote knowledge of the letter of scripture.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us your sending to testify of you wherever you want .
Acts 26:14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking to me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecute you me? [it is] hard for you to kick against the pricks.
Note: Pricks or goads are pointed rods spurring oxen to work. They represent people audibly calling on God which Saul kicked against.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to hear you, understand you, and obey you.
Acts 26:15 And I said, Who art you, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom you persecute.
Acts 26:16 But rise, and stand upon your feet: for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of these things which you have seen, and of those things in the which I will appear to you;
Acts 26:17 Delivering you from the people, and [from] the Gentiles, to whom now I send you,
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to share you to those you send us to.
Bride Prayer: Jesus send us and stand by us helping us testify our real experiences of you. Prevent us from disobeying or persecuting you. Keep us ministering and witnessing the things we have seen and will see of you as you send and deliver us.
Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, [and] to turn [them] from darkness to light, and [from] the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
Note: Paul is converted for Jesus' purpose of gospel preaching to open the eyes (so they can see spiritual reality) of more believers turning them from darkness to light (their beings seen by spiritual eyes, in darkness: a result of sin or light: a result of Godly righteousness) and Satan to God (from being led by Satanic self and destruction to being led by God's life and absolute perfection), so they'll receive forgiveness (freedom from judgment), inheritance (possession of spiritual life, talents, and land), and sanctification (transformed in nature leading to spiritual perfection) by faith in Jesus.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us open eyes, turn us from darkness to light, from Satan to God, to receive forgiveness of sins and inheritance among your believers.
1 Corinthians 11:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake [it], and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
1 Corinthians 11:25 After the same manner also [he took] the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do you, as oft as you drink [it], in remembrance of me.
Note: Jesus instituted a ritual for remembering and enjoying Him which can and should be practiced with any food at every meal.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to remember you and your new testament when we eat and drink.
2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Note: Jesus' grace is sufficient to do all it does for everyone else if we believe, apply, and exercise it to repair our weaknesses which perfects Jesus' strength. Paul chose a lesser interpretation. MC Prayer: Yeshua give us all your sufficient grace to repair our weaknesses and be perfect .
To John (whose head rested on Jesus’ breast) - for spiritual introduction, revealing advanced stages of spiritual growth, and last promise
Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, said the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to be as you and with you in all things.
Bride Prayer: Jesus, help us open everyone's spiritual eyes, turn their spirits from being dark to light and from powered by Satan to God, so they can be free from judgment, inherit your life, talents, and position with all who are transformed by faith in you. Also help us eat and drink in remembrance of you and sufficiently utilize and magnify your grace. You are the ever-present almighty beginning and ending.
Revelation 1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What you see, write in a book, and send [it] to the seven churches which are in Asia; to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.
Revelation 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying to me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
Revelation 1:18 I [am] he that lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Note: Jesus introduces himself as God over all time and says to write this book sending it to the churches in seven cities (showing no divisions of ideology but only geography) then declares He is God; the one who begins and brings to completion ruling over life, hell and death.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us life and your ruling power over life, hell, and death.
Revelation 1:19 Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
Revelation 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which you saw are the seven churches.
Note: Seven stars are angels (messengers) of the seven churches (gold lampstands). Stars are providers of light like the lamps of the lampstand, not victors in controlling God's people. Gold signifies the churches all are one in God's divine nature but they must overcome their individual failures documented in these two chapters.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to write like you and be stars in your golden lampstands.
Revelation 2:1 To the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things says he that holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to walk with you as you hold us in your right hand.
Bride Prayer: Praise you Jesus for living evermore, having the keys of hell and death, showing the seven stars bear your light and the mystery of the churches you care for starting with Ephesus.
Revelation 2:2 I know your works, and your labor, and your patience, and how you can not bear them which are evil: and you have tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars:
Revelation 2:3 And have borne, and have patience, and for my name's sake have labored, and have not fainted.
Revelation 2:4 Nevertheless I have [somewhat] against you, because you have left your first love.
Note: They left loving Jesus first because Paul created prostitutes, not churches. Ephesians were converted into a church by time and teaching from John according to Jesuit history. They were turning from Jesus again. Paul's book emphasizes the body with members divided by functions -- instead of each in undifferentiated oneness acting as led by Jesus. Hierarchy produces loveless work.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us your true discernment, patience, work, and love.
Revelation 2:5 Remember therefore from where you art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come to you quickly, and will remove your candlestick out of his place, except you repent.
Revelation 2:6 But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.
Note: They must restore their love for Jesus or their church will end. Jesus hates the leaders above laity system, wanting everyone to be His priests.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to be equals with you.
Bride Prayer: Jesus lead us into increasing our love for you, not leaving our first love. Thank you for leading us to hate those who place themselves above, triumphantly bullying, and in control of other true believers. Help us love and magnify you in our works, labor, patience, trying leaders to level those not sent by you, bearing believers with patience, and laboring for your names sake without fainting, ever cooperating with you.
Revelation 2:7 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
Note: Ephesus left its first love, an emotion error. Overcomers love eating (in Spirit) the tree of life in paradise - where Jesus brought the good thief on the cross in death. This is the church experience of growing in love for Jesus.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us to overcome and eat of the tree of life to grow toward you.
Revelation 2:8 And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things says the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
Revelation 2:9 I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you art rich) and [I know] the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but [are] the synagogue of Satan.
Revelation 2:10 Fear none of those things which you shall suffer: behold, the devil shall cast [some] of you into prison, that you may be tried; and you shall have tribulation ten days: be you faithful to death, and I will give you a crown of life.
Revelation 2:11 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; He that overcomes shall not be hurt of the second death.
Note: Smyrna suffers, a body problem. Overcomers are faithful in body death earning a crown of resurrection life so shall not be hurt of the second death. This is the church experience of growing in standing physically for God. It's not enough to be called out of the world, you must overcome it to be called up to God's throne -- thus God wants everyone to be a church of overcomers.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us overcome physical death.
Revelation 2:12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things says he which has the sharp sword with two edges;
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to be free of bad genes.
Bride Prayer: Jesus make us overcome all errors or sins. Help us hear what the Spirit says to the churches and overcome the devil, prison, and death. Guide us in our works, tribulation, and poverty. As you wrote these messages to all churches, keep them one in growing toward you by overcoming the world.
Revelation 2:13 I know your works and where you dwell, [even] where Satan's seat [is]: and you hold fast my name, and have not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas [was] my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells.
Revelation 2:14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit fornication.
Revelation 2:15 So have you also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.
Note: Nicolaitanes means "over-laity" which implies the eldership-clergy-congregation system and all other unequal status or hierarchy among believers which stumbles them into idolatry and fornication. Antipas means "against all" which means he resisted church leaders and those who idolized them, who then killed him making their hearts Satan's home. Today getting rid of God's faithful by the Satan doctrined is usually limited to excommunication.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us to overcome all hierarchy.
Revelation 2:16 Repent; or else I will come to you quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
Revelation 2:17 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows saving he that receives [it].
Note: Pergamos has bad spiritual genes and idolatry, a conscience problem. Overcomers exercise the conscience to eat hidden manna and get a white stone with a new secret name. This is the church experience of growing in inner life.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to eat you and receive your white stone with new name.
Bride Prayer: Oh Jesus, empower us to overcome Satan who killed your faithful Antipas. Make us repent and reject false doctrine, things sacrificed to idols, fornication, and Nicolaitan inequality. Guide us into overcoming and give us the hidden manna, white stone, and new name.
Revelation 2:18 And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things says the Son of God, who has his eyes like to a flame of fire, and his feet [are] like fine brass;
Revelation 2:19 I know your works, and charity, and service, and faith, and your patience, and your works; and the last [to be] more than the first.
Note: The first works may indicate miracles and the last may be physical works.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us to do all that you appreciate.
Revelation 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against you, because you suffer that woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols.
Revelation 2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
Revelation 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
Note: This includes the old testament sins of Jezebel and those acting like her and her followers in modern times. She fulfills Jesus' prophecy in Matt. 13:33 becoming the great mother harlot in Rev. 17-18 a corrupt bride rejected by Christ.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us to overcome the great whore Jezebel and all her daughter denominations.
Revelation 2:23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searches the reins and hearts: and I will give to every one of you according to your works.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to do your best works worthy of your best rewards and leave the dead whores.
Bride Prayer: Jesus make us overcome Jezebel and her teachings of fornication, adultery, and eating things sacrificed to idols. Judge her and those who are one flesh with her including her children until they repent. Make our works worthy of your best gifts.
Revelation 2:24 But to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
Revelation 2:25 But that which you have [already] hold fast till I come.
Note: These church members who don't pay attention to the demonic subculture in their midst are told to continue as they are.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us to be free of all of Satan's doctrines and influences.
Revelation 2:26 And he that overcomes, and keeps my works to the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
Revelation 2:27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
Note: The rod of iron is serious iron-willed prayer, one of the most important things in overcoming because it enables the believer to participate in the ascension of the man-child, born of the true Bride and Jesus in Rev. 12:5. God offers the rod of iron to all who are willing to use it, true God given authority to rule nations spiritually by prayer, to draw people to Him from the false authority of human hierarchy.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us your guidance in using the rod of iron as you want it used.
Revelation 2:28 And I will give him the morning star.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us the morning star so we awake fully in you.
Bride Prayer: Thank you Jesus for keeping us from Satan and lead us in keeping your works to the end. When you give us power over the nations, guide us in ruling them with a rod of iron, which prepares us for membership in your man-child. Help us break nations which sin and provide the morning star of waking to the enjoyment of you so we may see and pursue you every morning.
Revelation 2:29 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
Note: Thyatira (your attire) has surface vision, an intuition problem. Overcomers see all, get power over nations, rule with a rod of iron (Rev. 12:5), and the morning star.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us to overcome all church problems.
Revelation 3:1 And to the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things says he that has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know your works, that you have a name that you live, and art dead.
Revelation 3:2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found your works perfect before God.
Revelation 3:3 Remember therefore how you have received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and you shall not know what hour I will come upon you.
Note: Jesus comes according to each church's need, in this case as the Seven Spirits to enliven the seven parts of man and the seven stars who lead by sharing the light of life instead of deadening command and control. Curing Sardis' death requires strengthening the things that aren't dead yet, remembering what was shared, and repenting to live by God's life perfectly.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us to live to you and overcome death.
Revelation 3:4 You have a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
Revelation 3:5 He that overcomes, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to walk with you undefiled and named by you before your Father and his angels.
Bride Prayer: Open our ears to hear what the Spirit says Jesus to help us magnify your seven spirits in our seven parts: spiritual fellowship, intuition, conscience, mind, emotion, will, and body. Also help us be watchful, strengthen things of you in us, remember, repent, not defile our garments and overcome to be clothed in white, remain written in the book of life, and be named by you to your Father and his angels.
Revelation 3:6 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
Note: Sardis is nominally alive but spiritually dead, a fellowship problem. Overcomers fellowship and will be clothed in white, remain in the book of life, and Jesus will confess his name to the Father and his angels. This is the church experience of fellowship lacking in Christ's life growing to righteousness and life.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us to stand for you in life perfectly undefiled.
Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things says he that is holy, he that is true, he that has the key of David, he that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens;
Revelation 3:8 I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept my word, and have not denied my name.
Revelation 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
Revelation 3:10 Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
Note: The church experience of brotherly love comes when everyone can speak God's words so with time confidence and love can be built for each participant. One must overcome, growing beyond brotherly love to go preach to the nations.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us your brotherly love and patience, lead us through the open door to your throne.
Bride Prayer: Guide us through the open door you've provided Jesus and help us continue in your strength, keeping your word, name, and patience. Show us how to best convert those you send. And keep us from temptation.
Revelation 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which you have, that no man take your crown.
Revelation 3:12 Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, [which is] new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and [I will write upon him] my new name.
Revelation 3:13 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
Note: Philadelphia has brotherly love from a mind fully set on the Spirit. Overcomers are made pillars in God’s temple, go not out, have the name of God and His city new Jerusalem, and Jesus’ new name for continuously minding Him. This is the church experience of growing in perfected brotherly love.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us power to keep our crown, your new name, and be your pillars going not out.
Revelation 3:14 And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
Revelation 3:15 I know your works, that you art neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot.
Revelation 3:16 So then because you art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue you out of my mouth.
Note: When the overcomer of Philadelphia first goes out to preach, the people gathered are often lukewarm may drag the supplier of light down to their level. The star must overcome this too instead of staying in the lukewarm state and perhaps be excommunicated from the church s/he started.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to overcome new believers poor ideas with hot and cold meals of your life and truth.
Bride Prayer: Keep us holding to what we have and our crown of life. Help us overcome, go no more out, and hear what the Spirit says in either coldness or hotness. Make us not be lukewarm.
Revelation 3:17 Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Revelation 3:18 I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and [that] the shame of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that you may see.
Note: Those who grow beyond brotherly love knowing the Bible tend to think they know all God is, not aware of their shortage in real spiritual talents such as walking on water. Spiritual memories are nothing compared to having current direct instant contact in successful negotiation with God. So pray for pure gold, white clothes and eyesalve.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us to be rich in gold, spiritual clothes, eyesalve, and all things you want us to have.
Revelation 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Revelation 3:21 To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
Note: Believers who overcome to this stage are qualified to ascend to God's throne as members of the man-child, described in Rev. 12:5 and eat the marriage supper in Rev. 19.7. Believers who overcome Thyatira get the rod of iron-willed prayer required for the man-child and they who overcome Laodicea use it in ascending to God's throne.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to be zealous, repent, answer your knock, eat with you and sit with you on your throne.
Bride Prayer: Make us remember our true state and buy gold - your life nature that has been tried in the fire, the white raiment of righteous acts, and the spiritual eyesalve of true sight Jesus. Make us open to you immediately when you knock, and overcome to sit with you on your throne and marriage supper.
Revelation 3:22 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
Note: Laodiceans, the ministry of laity, is lukewarm, a will problem. Overcomers will sit with Jesus in His throne (see Rev 12:5). These are the growing experiences when starting a new church.
MC Prayer:Yeshua give us to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
Revelation 22:7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed [is] he that keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
Revelation 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward [is] with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Revelation 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star.
Revelation 22:20 He which testifies these things says, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Note: Keep these prophecies, my reward to give according to everyone’s work is with me. I sent my angel; I am the morning star, I come quickly. Everything begins and ends with Jesus.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us to keep the prophecies of this book doing your best work.
Bride Prayer: Jesus keep our ears open to hear you as you guide us to keep your prophecy that we may be worthy of your best reward. Come Lord Jesus!
