How Long did Jesus Stay on the Cross?

                                                   O ne day as I was
running an errand a
service truck turned
in front of me as
I was driving.
It had some kind of rig on the back of it that resembled a huge cross.  It was also brown in color.  I felt deep inside of me that a resurrection message was stirring as Easter was a week away.  As I stared at the cross it became crystal clear in my spirit just how long Jesus spent on the cross for us before He surrendered His Spirit to God.  His willingness to linger there proved His tremendous love for us. Here is how long I believed He hung there for us.
He stayed there until:
Every Issue
Was Settled,
Every Problem
Was Fixed,
Every Habit
Was Broken,
Every Mystery
Was Solved,
Every Relationship
Was Mended,
Every Broken Heart
Was Healed,
Every Fear Was
Replaced With Faith,
Every Tear
Was Wiped Away,
and most of all until
Every Sin
Was Forgiven!
Marsha Deveaux Johnson, (2009)

May every need in your life be met by the One who stayed on the cross for you until everything was finished!

Why "Hepzibah in Training?"

More than twenty five years ago I stood in a powerful praise and worship service. As I entered into worship weeping in the presence of the King, I heard the voice of Jesus in my spirit. He called me two names. The first name was Hephzibah and the second was Beulah. I was stunned and immediately sat down on the bench to ponder these two names. Neither of these names appeared flattering to me.

I left church and called my sister, a mighty warrior of God, and told her that God had called me two names. Her reply was “If God called me names; I needed to find out what they meant.” I searched scripture and found that the name Hephzibah means, “The Lord delights in her” and that Beulah meant, “Thy land is married (committed, spoken for, etc). Needless to say, I was delighted in the significance of these two names that my Savior has bestowed upon me. My goal and treasure in life is to fulfill the plan for my life on this side of Eternity and to train for the other side of Eternity.

I offer you the revelations, thoughts, and meditations that God imparts to me in this blog “Hepzibah In Training”.

I thank you for your comments.
