Word of the Lord from Purim to Passover and Beyond

When a major shift takes place in our lives, we are presented with a new beginning. Where there is death of the flesh there is a well spring of new life and resurrection. As we focus on the new life the pain of death breaks off of us. Allowing us the chance to embrace new joy in the resurrection. This Passover marks a major turning point for government, the church, and our nations at large. Just as we see seeds firmly planted in the ground arise in the spring; We will see an uncovering of much that has been operating underneath the surface. This is a good thing, because that which is exposed and brought to light shall be removed. Now that the life of it has become visible it can no longer remain shrouded in darkness.
I heard the Lord say that during this emerging month of Nissan (March28th) that which has remained hidden must come to light. So, that there can be an uprooting of the hindrances that have been germinating in the darkness. The power of the Glory will expose it, consume it, and remove it out of its place of prominence. That which has thrived in darkness will be destroyed and removed by the power of resurrection life.
A part of the perfecting process in 5777 is the glorious light that will reveal the hidden sides of things that have been covered in deception. That which started during the Feast of Trumpets has moved into an even greater perfecting. There is a Jewish understanding of the Feast of Trumpets that marks the world’s creation which is represented upon the 1st day of Tishrei. We also see that the month of Nissan which carries a deeper meaning of new beginnings marks the season of Passover. Scholars debate to this day which beginning in more significant.
Timing is Redemptive and Full of Strategy
I believe it prophetically makes a statement to us as the people of God that this new beginning carries the theme of redemption to another level. The Lord God Almighty is forever having compassion upon His people to forgive and redeem them back to Him. Beginning again and starting afresh these things hold true as the Lord has been long suffering over His beloved and has provided us times, seasons, and feast, that He may allow us to repent, change and begin again. We see the heart of the Messiah in the face of this Passover Feast and His love for His redeemed. However, we are in the season to change now. That redemption has run deep and if we can lay hold of it. It will release upon us restoration going back into original intent. Look for a mighty resurgence and resurrection of His Glory. Taking us and saturating us in all we can be in Him as we cry out. Passing over into new possibilities will break off the weariness of the winter seasons that was once upon us.
Everything is coming into full view. There is a crying of repentance and that which is coming out of the fiery place of His presence. Things that seemed small will become very big overnight. That which is not uprooted will come under the judgement of the Lord. This re-ordering is part of the balance of unjust weights, which is the order of the day. The fact that we will see an uprooting and a springing forth will be evidence of the change.
In the midst of the battle that is being waged in the realm of the spirit there is about to be a downpour of rain. We will see many small victories water a harvest of coming manifestation. This is an hour to stay watchful, while advancing. Praying while progressing. Marching forth as we exit the place of His presence, because there will be times of much needed vigilance that will keep us alert and prepared. (1 Peter 5:8,9). Knowing that while we are progressing, plans of retaliation are simultaneously being set in play. This is stirring up and shaking the heavens causing His glory to come down and push back the attacks of the enemy. The Lord says, “Don’t allow issues to be forced upon you that I haven’t placed there. Don’t allow fear, religion, and intimidation to prevent your advancement or cause you to work in division, but stay unified. Exercise discernment in all that you do. Stay in the light and pray forth the light even in dark places.”.
The Passover Lion and the Lamb
I received an understanding in prayer concerning the Lion and the Lamb. In this hour, we are receiving the understanding that the emphasis of the Lamb is coming into full view. Understanding that humility comes as a result of a life laid down. (1 John 3:16 & John 3:16). We see the power of Lion of the tribe of Judah as we allow our flesh to die. Dying to our flesh gives us access to that power. In order to walk in the resurrection power of the lion we must understand the humility of the lamb. Our humility and service of compassion to others releases the power to walk in a consistent flow of resurrection life. Giving us the authority tread over that which is keeping God’s people from walking forth in the manifestation of signs & wonders to the Glory of God. Also empowering us to do many things like reviving that which has been cheated out of life. There are those that have been in a death like state and have been driven to give up on the promises of God, but the Lord said they have been “cheated out of life”. Know that the Lord is going to empower the humble so that they might be restored.
A Charge to the Intercessors and Watchmen:
There will be turmoil ahead especially rising out of the Middle East. We must work while it is day. (Watch and pray!) For the night comes when no man can work. There is an urgency for intercession in this hour. We must not operate out of fear and anxiety for the Lord has revealed to me that, “Timing in itself is a strategy.”. When God releases His wisdom and we apply it we see things being worked out in their proper timing. We will see strategies released by Apostolic & Prophetic intercessors as well as Watchmen who will move out according to Jeremiah 1:10. A great uncovering of improprieties will be revealed in the church from the pulpit to the door. As a sweeping deliverance moves forth to uproot darkness within the body of Christ. These sweeps will release a Glory that will fall heavy upon the people of God who desire freedom in this time. We must pray in this hour with hearts of compassion.
The oil and gold shall be released in this time.
Proverbs 24:6-12 “For by wise guidance you can wage your war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory. 7 Wisdom is too high for a fool; in the gate he does not open his mouth. 8 Whoever plans to do evil will be called a schemer. 9 The devising[a] of folly is sin, and the scoffer is an abomination to mankind. 10 If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. 11 Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. 12 If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work?”
