GOOD NEWS TO ALL COMRADES AND ASSOCIATES OF THE GOD-KIND! Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection? The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes. The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly folded, and was placed separate from the grave clothes. Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, 'They have taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and I don't know where they have put him!' Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see.. The other disciple outran Peter and got there first. He stooped and looked in and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he didn't go in. Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying to the side. Was that important? Absolutely! Is it really significant? Yes! In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day. The folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every Jewish boy knew this tradition. When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master wanted it.. The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table, until the master was finished. Now, if the master were done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers, his mouth, and clean his beard, and would wad up that napkin and toss it onto the table. The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, 'I'm done'. But if the master got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because........... The folded napkin meant, 'I'm coming back!' HE'S COMING BACK!!!! HALLELUJAH !

ICLC Day 2 With a series of edifying workshops, two powerful Super-Sessions and an inspiring talkshow, the 2nd session of the International Cell Leader's conference was an empowering time in God's presence, intensifying the leader's passion for world evangelism. "Excellence doesn't just happen. It's a choice. There are steps to take. ...Conditioning your spirit for excellence is something that no one can do for you, and that makes it better because it means No One Can Stop You either. And when you become excellent, you cannot be hidden." These were just some of the words from the Super Session with the esteemed Pastor Lanre Alabi, titled "Training for Excellence and Productivity". What a time it has been. The evening session has commenced and the atmosphere in the auditorium is already charged with God's divine presence. Every doubt will be dissolved and there will be a renewed boldness! It's a New Day, glory to God!

RESHARE THIS MAD MAN REGAINS SANITY AS ABUJA CHOIR BURST INTO SINGING EN ROUTE ICLC 2016. A mini crusade occurred in the city of Lokoja yesterday, Thursday 14th July 2016, as the Christ Embassy Abuja Choir enroute Lagos for ICLC 2016, stopped over in Lokoja. As activist Music Ministers, the Choir burst into singing and glorious renditions of praise to God Almighty. While singing, a mad man around moved by the melody of the anointed voices, began dancing and the Abuja Choir quickly recognised this as an opportunity to demonstrate the power of God. They surrounded him and cast out the evil spirits. Hallelujah! Sanity was restored to him, his clothes were changed and he was given a hair cut. As the crowds gathered to witness this glorious Miracle, a man who walked in deaf had his ear popped open and several who witnessed these great miracles surrendered their lives to Christ Recall that this same Abuja Choir while enroute Abuja from ICLC 2015 turned the airplane into an evangelical chariot as they burst into singing, reminding the passengers to be prepared because Jesus is coming again. Wow wow wow! We are spreading into every man's world and God is confirming our words with signs, wonders and miracles. GLORY!!! #ceabujazone
