6We are extraordinary women Ephesians 1:3-7 in the New Living Translation: “How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has BLESSED us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we belong to Christ. Long ago, even before He made the world, God LOVED and CHOSE us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. His unchanging plan has always been to ADOPT us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ...
7Ephesians 1:3-7...and this gave Him great pleasure. So we praise God for the wonderful kindness He has poured out on us in ACCEPTING us to Himself. In Him we have REDEMPTION through His blood, the FORGIVENESS of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.”
8WE ARE SEALED 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 “He (God) anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us and put His Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”
9HOPE AND A FUTURE Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”

15A WOMAN OF THE CROSS AND THE RESURRECTION A passionate woman
16A Woman of the Cross and Resurrection Philippians 2:6-8“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross.
17A Woman of the Cross and Resurrection Hebrews 10:19-23 NIV“Therefore, brothers [sisters], since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, His body and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess.”
18A Woman of the Cross and Resurrection The cross gave us new and living way to approach our God in the Most Holy Place. Jesus’ death removed the curtain and we can now walk into God’s presence at any time. We have personal unlimited access to our Heavenly Father…because of the cross...
19A Woman of the Cross and the Resurrection …In order to experience the new and living way we must by sprinkled with the blood – Christ’s blood – the perfect blood which flowed down from His crown of thorns. How close must we be to the cross to be sprinkled by His blood–RIGHT UNDER IT!
20OUR SINS ARE GONE; OUR LIVES ARE REDEEMED!! Then we must realize what Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15:14, 17:“If Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith…if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile...”

Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
29ARMOR OF GOD…...In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

44Tommy Tenney wrote in “God’s Eye View:” “Worship takes you up! It lifts you up! It seats you beside your Father. Everything looks better from God’s eye view!”
45Praise is a powerful weapon against Satan “Satan hates praise. It reminds him that God is still supreme in spite of all his evil efforts throughout the ages.It rubs in the fact of his inferiority, his limitations. Any praise thwarts Satan.To make your praise even more powerful against him, couple it with God’s Word.
46Praise is a powerful weapon against Satan… Especially with truths that magnify Jesus as victor.Include praise for the blood of Christ, the victory won on the Cross, the triumph of the Resurrection.Extol your risen Lord and His exalted position.Lift up His name in triumphant faith.Such praise is powerful in defeating Satan and his clever deceptions.”Ruth Myers-”31 Days of Praise”
