NAME OF GOD: Jehovah Elohim Ab

VerseSo Joshua said to the sons of Israel, “How long will you put off entering to take possession of the land which the Lord (Jehovah), the God (Elohim) of your fathers (Ab), has given you? - Joshua 18:3

Meaning: The LORD God of your forefathers

Prayer: Confession

Jehovah Elohim Ab, the Lord God of my forefathers, I confess to you that I don’t always make a connection between what you have done in the past and what you are doing currently in my own life. I neglect to study where I should be studying to learn your character through how you interacted with those who came before me. I am a child of Abraham and an heir to the covenants you have established with my spiritual forefathers. Yet I confess that I do not even know what all of that entails and all of the birthright that is due me. What I do not know, I cannot ask for. Forgive me for not taking full advantage of what you have established already through your relationship with my spiritual forefathers.

The Power of the Cross: Putting it to Work in Your Life

Rather than viewing the cross as an historical event that will take us to heaven, we ought to view it as a current event containing everything we need to bring heaven to bear on earth.

In The Power of the Cross, Tony Evans carefully and pastorally applies the cross of Christ to life today. In three parts, he considers:

What makes Christ unique; how Old Testament prophecy and typology looked ahead to Him; and how His humiliation, death and resurrection sets Him apart as Lord

What was accomplished on the cross for us, how it is to be the centerpiece of our lives, and how it's a source of authority for us

What is the power of the cross and the stability it provides, deliverance it offers, the power of its ongoing remembrance, and more

The cross is the hinge of history. How much more, then, is it the hinge of your life? It gained more for you than you may realize; do not make the grave error of overlooking it. As a thank you for your gift of any amount, we’ll get this brand new book, The Power of the Cross, out to you right away.
