WHY? “The Fast of Understanding”

The week leading to Resurrection Sunday is considered a ‘holy’ week for all Christendom as we trace the steps of Jesus Christ that ultimately end with His crucifixion. But “WHY” is Passion Week so significant and important to all of us? It is essential that we have clarity of understanding, not only for this week but what the Lord is directing for us in this “Year of Building.” Each day there are specific reading assignments that help us understand WHY?

Fasting, with prayer, meditation & study allows us a clear channel to hear what God is speaking.

The Principles of Fasting

The Body

Our Bodies are effected as our diet is changed during a time of fasting, and for some in very dramatic ways. Many men and women experience detoxifying from caffeine, chemicals, and sugar. The symptoms are most often headaches, leg cramps, pain in lower back, fatigue and malaise. Most people lose weight during the time of fasting. And many report healings from diabetes, allergies, arthritis and cancer.

The Soul

Our Soul is also greatly impacted during a time of fasting. The soul is the seat of our emotions, intellect, personality and will. It is in the ‘soulish realm’ where we experience cravings, frustration, anger… and even happiness. During the fast your soul may very well rebel against the dramatic change in your diet. Winning this battle over the flesh is often one of the most powerful lessons during the fast.

The Spirit

Our Spirit is the born-again part of us that surrenders to God. We become filled with the Holy Spirit when we yield our spirits to Him. During this time of fasting we want to put our spirit in charge of the other two parts of us. When our flesh is acting out with a craving, we take control of it by our spirit.
