One of the fundamental lessons that we continue to learn is that we cannot out-give God! The body of Christ today needs an army of people who are so committed to the Lord that “sacrificial giving” becomes a way of life. God’s Law of Reciprocity works! The Word of God says: “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Keep Luke 6:38 fervent in your hearts this year and watch God move miraculously. This passage shows how seriously the Lord God takes a matter of giving. If we want to release the super-abundance of the Kingdom of Heaven, we must first give. His principle will not fail, but we must execute it. We encourage you to sow your gift this year of $2019 or $219 into the Kingdom. Do this as an act of faith during this season of prayer and consecration.
TOTAL FAST (FIRST 3 DAYS OPTIONAL) March 6 - 8
To break all addictions, habits, and bondages (alcohol, drugs, nicotine, food, lust, etc.) the first three days we will ABSTAIN from ALL SOLID FOOD to starve out addiction toxins from every cell of the body. Water is permitted. Toxins will be released from the body by channels of elimination. *If you choose not to do the Esther fast, please follow phase one instructions
PHASE ONE (FIRST 30 DAYS) March 6 - April 4
During the first phase of the fast, you will skip breakfast and lunch and will fast from MIDNIGHT TO DINNER. Remember to drink plenty of water. If you feel any weakness or dizziness, a glass of fruit or vegetable juice is permitted. This is normal because the body is ridding itself of stored –up toxins. During dinner ABSTAIN from eating pork, red meats, and desserts. Avoid drinking soda and coffee.
PHASE TWO (LAST 10 DAYS) April 5 - 14
During phase two, continue to fast from midnight to dinner. ABSTAIN from consuming ALL MEATS including fish, seafood, chicken, poultry, pork, and red meats until the end of the fast.
