To many Ugandans, 20th March 2020 was a day full of tension and panic; simply because it was the last day of freedom as Ugandans were to get into a national lock-down as per the Government’s decree. This order was meant to combat the spread of the coronavirus disease which had turned out into a Global pandemic.
However, to the True Vine Communion Ministries For All Nations Partners it was a red letter day because the Servant of God, Prophet Abraham Richard Bisaso had called upon them for a special banquet.
In his words as he welcomed them, the Prophet said, “I have been waiting for this day for too long. Now that you are here believers, I pray that you eat with me. I want to thank you very much for the work you are handling as partners. After I thank God, I also have to come down and thank you too.
Learn from me, never forget to thank even those God is using to help you. There are no special words I can use to say thank you partners. You know what you are doing. Every time I am on the Prayer Mountain, I am thinking about you. Every time the LORD says give to that person this or that, I call upon you partners.
Willingly, you have always responded and brought all that is needed to give out as per God’s Will. So whenever God tells me thank you son, I have to run back and say thank you partners. Thank you very much Partners.”
With these humble words, the Prophet then gave out Special Prayer cards to the TVC Ministries Partners and instructed them each to write on them only one challenge. He was to present to God when goes back to the Prayer Mountain.
He guided them to sit down calmly; to talk and listen from the Holy Spirit. Thereafter, they should allow Him to guide each partner as they wrote down whatever they wished God to handle urgently.
With this session completed, the Prophet full of gratitude again thanked the TVC Ministries Partners for their relentless efforts to the Ministry’s football team – God’s People Football Club. On this, he authenticated that without their help, the team would not have successfully made to its current profound state.
Prophet Abraham Richard said that their partnership with the Ministry has become river of blessings flowing to the youth ministry. On this frequency, he pointed out the Charity magazine Volume 1: Issue:2, that was in the publication process with the TVC Partners sponsorship, which magazine was to touch and reach out to many youths so as to bring them closer to Christ.
Soon it was time for the Passover meal- as encrypted in the Gospel of Saint Luke 22:1-20. 19“And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’” (NIV)
Perfecting the Holy Scriptures, Prophet Abraham Richard served out a prophetic dish to the TVC Ministries Partners. As he served it, he noted “Let every plate pass through my hands for I want to serve everyone myself.” This is a clear image that Christ is a good shepherd who cares for each sheep dearly and individually.
As the TVC Ministries Partners settled down to enjoy this delicious meal. The Servant of God still as meek as a dove served them with soft drinks, thanking each of them for all they are doing as per God’s work. With this he revealed. “You are no longer this person they used to despise, you are someone today. I pray God’s hand to strengthen you more. Truth be told, I love you, but Jesus loves you more!” the Prophet exclaimed.
Gracing this special moment was the Ministry’s choir. With grateful hearts and with harmonized voices, they sang thankful songs to the God of all creations. Thanking Him for this beautiful moment that He had granted to the TVC Ministries Partners. It was without doubt that Christ was in their midst, and He was steering every moment.
To a lay man this looked like any usual meal but to those in Spirit it meant a lot. For the record this was the last day prior to the long quarantined time that the believers (Partners) last saw the Prophet physically. This is because Church gatherings had been suspended by the Government in trying to avert the spread of the coronavirus.
Certainly if one looks in the Spiritual settings, this was the perfect Spiritual Last Supper ever. For even Easter was not celebrated the habitual way. In fact, no one was allowed to leave their houses to attend Palm Sunday, Good Friday or Easter Mass courtesy of the national lockdown. However, no man then saw this coming, apart from the Holy Spirit. He alone knew this will come hence preparing those who belong to Him.
God is Love and His Love to those who Love Him is invincible. As a matter of fact, it comes in various forms. Look, Jesus loved Martha for being a good cook as He loved Mary for being a good listener (Luke 10:38-42). Objectively this was His way of expressing His Father’s unconditional love for them.
This is the same Love that Christ showed to the TVC Ministries Partners. It was His way of personifying that He (God) loves each of them unconditionally, the helpers- Martha and the good listeners- Mary. It is a lesson to all Christians; we too should love one another unconditionally.
Coming back to the Partner’s banquet, after the eating session, the Prophet asked the TVC Ministries Partners to rise up and start thanking the Lord Christ Jesus who had changed them and given them a Sprit of courage and dominion. He said, “Listen, in times of calamities God will supply to you. You shall be like a prince when the world is in tough times. God knows all of you by name. No shades of hell will hold you.”
To a descendant of Abraham, these words remind us of the Passover night in Egypt (Exodus 12). After the feast of unleavened bread the Israelites smeared sheep’s blood on their doorposts. This was a protection mark unto them and as the LORD moved that night and struck the land with death, the Israelites were spared.
So this too was not a coincidence but perfection of the scriptures. Meaning the God of Prophet Abraham Richard had bestowed special protection to the TVC Partners through the perilous times which were around the corner.
On this footing the Prophet declared to the TVC Ministries Partners saying, “Receive the power or resurrection in you. In your health, finances, family and spiritual life; receive the power or resurrection. Whatever good thing that was dead in you, receive the power of resurrection! Resurrection is our destiny.”
Epilogue: Believer, God’s Word never runs out of power or purpose. Meaning the same Word that redeemed the Israelites and the TVC Ministries Partners can redeem you now if you only believe. So join the believers who have been touched by this message and welcome the power of God imparted on it.
Confess: I receive the power of resurrection in my faith, family health and finances, in Jesus’ name!
