50 DAYS OF PRAYER AND CONSECRATION
50 DAY CONSECRATION HISTORY
The 50-day consecration was a vision given by our late founder, Apostle Johnnie Washington during the early years of this ministry and is now carried out through our Overseer, Bishop Ronny Davis. All members regardless of denomination, are welcomed to be apart of the consecration
Consecration is an act by a person or thing dedicated to the service and worship of God. Full consecration is the setting apart of oneself to God for the personal pleasure of God. (Ephesians 2:10)
Fasting is the abstinence from food for a period. The custom has always played a part in the practices of every religious group at some time. It is believed that fasting will take one’s mind away from physical things and produce a spiritual state of mind. (Joel 2:15-16, Matt. 4:2, Jer 36:6)
Prayer is an offering up of our desires to God for the things lawful and needful with a humble confidence to obtain them only through the meditation of Christ, to the praise of the mercy, truth, and power of God. Prayer is our conversation with God. (Luke 18:1, Matt 6:6)
WHY 50 DAYS?
The 50th day from Easter represents 40 days Jesus walked the earth after his resurrection the 10 days from the time of his ascension into Glory until the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. At the end of 50 days, we celebrate “PENTECOST” the word “PENTECOST” is derived from the Greek language which means “FIFTIETH DAY”. Originally the festival was the time the first fruits were formally dedicated.
Pentecost is one of the three main feasts of Israel. They were sacred feasts which were occasions of public worship. It was the events of the second chapter of Acts that transformed the Jewish festival into a Christian one. It is also known as “WHITE SUNDAY”.
On the 50th day, WE WILL CELEBRATE PENTECOST at the Tabernacle of Prayer Jamaica Headquarters to lift the name of Jesus.
