This Lenten Season begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14. Following in the footsteps of Jesus who went into the wilderness to prepare for the mission that was before him, may you and I spend this whole Lenten Season in prayer, reflection and meditation as we too prepare ourselves for God’s mission. God be our guide and strength.
[In as much as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)
And when that time comes, you will ask nothing of Me [you will need to ask Me no questions]. I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that My Father will grant you whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]. Up to this time you have not asked a [single] thing in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete.
