This Passover Season is Like No Other in Our Lifetime

This week, I was asked to speak on a blog talk radio program and the Lord gave me a powerful warning concerning this Passover. Well, there I was, all ready to do my radio show and yet unable to connect with the host. Finally, he informed me that there had been a miscalculation in the time difference and the time they had given me was an hour late!!

What a let down. But as usual, the Lord is unphased. He just said to me, “Yes, Beloved, the hour is late! Trying to connect with anyone who has no understanding of the times will cause you to miss your opportunity to release your God-given sound”.

Well, that was a message in itself for all of us… So as He had given me a message, which was pivotal for this moment on this momentous day in history, Nisan 14th, the day God changed the course of history forever, I decided to record a podcast of the message I had prepared and release it anyway.

Beloved, this Passover season is like no other in our lifetime. The hour is very late and the urgency to fully consecrate to the Lord has never been higher. It’s time to leave and cleave; to fully lay hold of that for which Christ laid hold of you when He paid that Bridal Price in His precious Blood all those years ago. You have been brought to the kingdom for such a time as this! However, one cannot enter fully into what He has prepared for you unless you separate fully from all that defiles. It is not acceptable to have one foot on both sides of the dividing line of the Blood.

The gate of Ishtar led into Babylon and participating in the feast of Ishtar (Easter) this year will connect you spiritually to Babylon. Constantine did the church of Jesus Christ a terrible disservice when he ‘christianized’ the pagan festivals. Jesus is our Passover Lamb, not our Easter bunny, and dressing Ishtar up in religious robes doesn’t change the appointment on Sunday the 16th to celebrate the ‘resurrection’ of her lover Tammuz. Don’t be found loitering at the gates of Babylon, beloved. Separate unto Him Who is our Kinsman Redeemer, whose Blood provides protection from the Destroyer! Celebrate the Passover Lamb this day.

The Israelites were only protected from the Destroyer in Egypt because they had done exactly what the Lord had commanded. The Blood on the doorposts set them apart from Egypt and all it entailed. After partaking of the Passover Lamb on the evening of the 15th of Nisan, they left Egypt, never to return.

Please listen to this podcast and see what the Lord has revealed concerning understanding of the times we are entering. The day that burns like an oven is at the door and whatever you embrace in this Passover season will determine your appointed portion in the days ahead.

When a new generation of the Israelites crossed the Jordan on 10th of Nisan, ready for war, their first appointment was not a glorious battle and takeover bid. It was a painful close encounter with the circumcision flint! Entering fully into Covenant came before Passover and only afterwards was the secret battle plan of Heaven revealed for Jericho’s conquering.

You have a covenantal appointment with the Bridegroom at the close of this day, the 14th Nisan. Take time out to listen and allow the Holy Spirit to set you apart for Himself!

I am sorry to rock the boat… As believers in Jesus Christ, Be aware of people who insisting us to go back to Jewish festivals, using only Hebrew names for Jesus, or Other Hebrew terms … it will ONLY promote you to have self righteousness some times even leads to deception… When early Church is born, Apostles decided to force /set rules on ONLY few things Acts 15: 19-20 19 “It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God. 20 Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood.” If God leads you to worship only on seventh day.. go for it.. please don’t force or make it law….And another thins is.. too much focus on Anointing oil ( that can lead you easily to Idolatry.. I am not against Anointing t oil.. but people are literally put their confidence on anointed oil rather spending time with God in prayer, praise and worship, fasting ,Reading mediating word. ( I also understand even confidence in your prayer, fasting also be Idolatry )’ God recently. taught me below things to focus more … 1. CONTINUAL REPENTANCE ATTITUDE on daily basis 2. FOCUS MORE ON BLOOD and CROSS OF JESUS, NAME OF JESUS, WORD AND SPIRIT. 3. ACKNOWLEDGE OFTEN FATHER, SON, HOLY SPIRIT. 4. STRIVE TO KEEP HUMBLE, GENTLE ,UPRIGHT HEART BEFORE GOD AND MEN . 5.INTERCEDE,INTERCEDE, INTERCEDE I have lot of red flags on below things…. Going to back to Jewish roots, Sabbath keeping , Only Hebrew terms for God, Prayer Shawls, other prayer sacred items Gold dust, gold tooth, feathers appearing, Putting too much confidence on Anointing Oil … Anything gives you… Read more »

These are not Jewish festivals. The Bible says they are God”s appointments with us. Jesús celebrated them , as well as the disciples, Paul, did and even told the believers to celebrate it in 1 cor 5: 7. Jesús said he would celebrate it again in the kingdom in luke 22. It is all about Jesús

My point is over emphasizing on anythings other than Blood, Cross, Resurrection, His Word and Finished work of Jesus Christ…

Even Apostle Paul lived on this…..

Gal 6:14
May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

1 Cor 2:2
For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.

Jesus Himself told
Mark 2:
21 “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. Otherwise, the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse. 22 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.”

It hurts me so deeply how Christians are divided or argue or built doctrine
based on
Sunday worship,
Saturday worship, Jewish traditions,
Only KJV group,
Easter/Christmas Celebration,
Pre,Post, Mid Tribulation Rapture

When final warning ( I call it report cards issued to Churches) what Jesus emphasized in the book of Revelation is….

1. Repentance,Repentance ,Repentance ,
2. Overcome, Overcome,Overcome.

Object, Place , Event(Festivals), Method(Rituals), Guru (Priest) are key points to Joy and confidence in Idolatry .

( I come from deep idol worship background);

I incorrectly used the word “festivals” earlier. They are God’s appointed “Feasts” or Holy Days which are Specific times dedicated to spend with Him. And, as B. Hansen also mentioned, they will go on “forever.” It’s not about getting caught up in legalism but a time of communing with the Lord. It’s about an appointment for RELATIONSHIP. Also, as former Gentiles and followers of Jesus Christ, we are NOT obligated to go through the mechanical motions of specific activities. You would be correct as that would be “dead works.” But, as I have learned and grown and continue to learn and grow, I want to BE more like Jesus (English name) or Yeshua (same name but in Hebrew). And, He participated in the Feasts. BUT I AM NOT OBLIGATED! The Jerusalem Council realized that New Baby Believers would not make it if they were immediately hit up with tons of rules and regulations. They knew that they needed to “keep it simple stupid.” They knew that legalism does not earn salvation. The blood of Jesus was and is the key to salvation. But, when we want to please someone, in love we try to do those things that we know pleases them. Actions of Love, not actions of Obligation. They, the Jerusalem Council, as Jewish Christ Followers, also realized that they were born and raised in the Old Covenant and it was TOO MUCH for new believers to immediately adapt to. (We don’t expect newborn babies, toddlers and preschoolers to immediately act as adults, now do we? But we slowly teach them our expectations so as they mature so they can behave as adults when they reach that age.) The Jerusalem Council was applying that same logic. However, they did start with minimum expectations regarding: pollution of idols/meat of idols,… Read more »

Country Girl,
Last Oct. I had a night vision from the Lord of my mother’s traditional Dec. 24 Christmas Eve cookies (spritz and sugar) falling in my lap. I could explain more about this vision, but basically it’s about a ministry to Israel will all the provision coming which is happening now. Things are literally falling in our lap with this. We just got an apartment by Megiddo air force base and are connecting with a Messianic church.
I was not interested in the Messianic Feasts much before last October. To my amazement this vision came at the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles which most messianic believers think is the time of Chirst’s real birth. I did not go to bed that night knowing this. As my pastor told me recently, “You can’t make a vision like this up on your
own!”

JEC! God Bless You in your journey!!

I am fairly new to the rich levels of revelations from the Old Testament.

I was raised in the Methodist church and have believed in God & Jesus ALL my life. I have been in non-denominational churches for the last 12 or so years.

But I literally stumbled into Amazing Hidden Mysteries, that have been in plain sight for the last 50+ years, just within the last 4 years. This started with some of Beth Moore”s Bible Studies, which peaked my curiosity and caused me to begin digging deeper.

I am like, “why aren’t the churches teaching us this stuff!!” It is so sad!!

God has slowly led me to discover his Feasts, Hebrew names and meanings, etc. I’m sure that I have still just touched the surface. He knows me well enough to know if He had revealed this information quickly, I would have ran as fast as I possibly could the other direction, thinking this was “kool-aid drinking” cuckoo stuff! LOL!!!!
He has been very patient with me!!!

Country Girl,
Back in 1999 my wife and I had our first trip to Israel. At the Wall I said a simple prayer to the Lord asking Him to make me a preacher to the Jews. A couple years later a seer sitting behind us in church had a vision of me at the Wall getting a message back in the form of a scroll. It was about ministry to the Jews. He knew very little about Israel. He said in the vision I was age 62 (which is now). It was astonishing because nobody not even my wife knew about this personal prayer. But…God remembered my prayer. He said not to worry about China. So… is something going on with China and the US soon?

Hi Country Girl, BTW i like that name.. I am also country girl . 🙂 OK… this will be my final comment on this issue. When people say they celebrate Passover and Festival of Unleavened Bread…. please read Exodus 12: Some key points mentioned 1. Each family or along with neighbors should have one year old sheep or goat 2. That Blood has to be applied on your door frames. 3. You need to cook in night eat same night any left over has to be burnt 4.This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is the Lord’s Passover. 5.On the first day hold a sacred assembly, and another one on the seventh day. Do no work at all on these days, except to prepare food for everyone to eat; that is all you may do. 6. On the first day hold a sacred assembly, and another one on the seventh day. Do no work at all on these days, except to prepare food for everyone to eat; 7. No uncircumcised male may eat it. and there are so many other detailed instructions, and I am sure every Feast LORD has given will have very very specific detailed instructions and HE has warned also if any one violates any instructions… And another point you mentioned that we are not judged by our works,, Yes WE are.. WE simply cannot call everything as Legalism /Work based .. Legalism and Righteousness will have same output but attitude of the heart differs. That only GOD can see… I just give here few Scriptures how are deeds/works are judged… Rev;22 :11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he… Read more »

Hi Sathya
when we as Christians celebrate Passover, the only sensible way to do it is in thanking our Passover Lamb, Jesus, that He fulfilled this feast in all its minute details. Its not about leaven in our houses, but about leaven in our hearts, about covenanting afresh with Him as the Bridegroom who paid the Bridal price in His blood. Paul said that all these things are shadows but the substance is Christ. In contrast to this, Easter is full of imagery connected to the feast of Ishtar, bunnies, eggs etc etc. God wants His people to come out of Babylon and all that is connected to it in the practices handed down for generations, that have no basis in the Truth of what Jesus did for us. Yes, I thank Him for this every day when I break bread but as these cycles comes round, He always has a special appointment with me in the secret place.
Every year when I come to the Passover season, the Spirit gives me more nuggets of Truth concerning what was accomplished and what is unfolding in our time in prophetic parallels. I am not yoked to the concepts of no work or whatever, – all they speak to me of is entering Sabbath rest, in which we cease form our own fleshly labors and work the works of God..

Dear Sathya, Jesus came to Fulfill The Law and take us out from under The Law so that we do not have to abide by all the rituals that The Jews had to abide by in the Old Testament, however we Still have to abide by The Ten Commandments plus Jesus Two Commandments. You can Still Celebrate The Jewish Feast Days but you do not have to adhere to the strict Rituals. Those who still follow the strict Rituals of The Law will be judged by The Law as they haven’t accepted into their hearts that Jesus has Fulfilled The Law..

Hope this helps you…GOD Bless and Huge Hugs Rebecca XXX

I think her main point is to have our eyes fixed on Jesus as you well know, but,, for the lesser read Christians, many are the religious traps of our day……..For in the late 90’s when I was being willingly sucked into the teachings of the Messianic Movement, the Holy Spirit sovereignly pulled me back out and showed me compelling Scriptures that the New Testament is how we should live our lives by……the Chief Scripture He gave was…….”not according to”
“the covenant that I made with their fathers”……..Hebrews 8:8-10 (KJV)

“For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: 9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

Sathya, I understand your concerns, however, for me it is not about the celebration of a Jewish festival or tradition, but it is an extension of a love relationship with Jesus. To be able to honor and celebrate God’s appointed times is truly a blessing and a privilege for any Christian. I would also suggest that you read a book called The Messianic Church Arising by by Robert D. Heidler. It explains that the early church never stopped celebrating God’s appointed times.

Whatever God’s Leading is for you, as a part of the Body, is what is right for you. God’s leading is not a cookie cutter approach for all. And, I see in my life, a path of discovery He is Leading me on, with revelations as He leads me to find them. It is a path toward greater maturity on His time schedule. It sounds like your path, right now, is not about digging into a deeper level of the Hebrew mysteries so to speak. That does not make it wrong. We must all run the race that he desires for each of us in our personal walk with the Lord.
God Bless You!

Thanks Sathya, I love the Jewish feasts and I love studying them for in them I am pointed always to my beloved Savior Jesus. They are a beautiful type and shadow of my Lord but the substance is in him. As I walk with him, those feasts are fulfilled in my life as well. They with all the law are a school teacher to teach us about him. It’s about him. Thank you for rocking the 🚣 boat.

Sathya, As I read your entire comment I can truly see you have a heart for God and desire to serve Him. I also have to question if you attend a church that has spoken a message of ‘now we live under grace, we are no longer under the law’. We need to be very careful that we don’t allow someONE to tell us what to believe rather than taking instruction directly from the Word of GOD Himself. Satan desires to throw in a lie here and there, and unknowingly we start to follow a false doctrine. Please read for yourself Ex 12:24. “And you shall observe this thing as an ordinance for you and your sons FOREVER.” I believe God knew what He was saying, when He said Forever. Also, the Seventh Day Sabbath Worship is not my law, IT’S GOD’S LAW. Take a minute to think about that. Written on STONE, BY THE FINGER OF GOD. I don’t take that lightly, and neither should anyone else! God will NOT force you to keep His laws, nor will I. It is all by choice. We all get to choose whether we take the wide path or the narrow path, just always remember the wide path leads to hell and you can’t tell me the world which worships on Sunday is on the narrow path. We all need to be very careful where we get our doctrines because we have been warned about the doctrine of demons in the last days. The Lord loves you and He wants you to know the truth. You are going to have to DIG and study for yourself. God Bless you and may He, in His Devine Love, through His Holy Spirit, lead you to the truth. John 8:32 And you shall know the… Read more »

Have to agree with Sathya on this. We are not under the Law anymore but under Grace with the emphasis on repentance and saved by the Lamb not Law. Letter in Acts from the Council to the Gentiles put none of the old testament requirements on them.
With all respect, you cant mix the old and new testament – that is one of the reason the church are so powerless today. When looking at anything of the old testament today, it has to be seen through the lenses of the new covenant. I am proof of that where I had an upbringing in a traditional church which had feet in both covenants and all sorts of religious junk with it I am still trying to get rid of today. And I am not young anymore.

It all about the heart, not behaviour because that will come with the right heart. Even more so since the the coming of the Lord in his saints is appearing fast – 2 Thes 1:10. He will reside in those who have an intimate relationship with Him, not based on fear as a servant towards a master but one on pure love, absolute loyalty, selflessness and holiness.

Been there, worn that religious T-shirt, no thanks.

Please do not misunderstand me and think I am standing with a step counter in my hand and saying, oh, oh, oh, you took more than 80 steps on the Sabbath, shame on you.” I am not saying that at all. I Know we are not under the Law and I Know I serve God NOT because I am trying to earn my way to heaven, but because I am so INCREDIBLY THANKFUL He sent His only Son to die for me, that I may be given eternal life, that I do not deserve, because I am a sinner. Please do not confuse God’s Law and Mose’s Law. God’s Law is written on STONE and currently resides IN the Arc of the Covenant. Moses Law resides in the side of the Arc, not in the center. Also remember what Jesus said was the most important commandment in Mat. 22:36-40, “‘LOVE the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’. … All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Then remember what Jesus said in John 14:15 “If you LOVE Me, keep My commandments.
There we have it, out of the mouth of Jesus. The 10 Commandants are God’s Laws and they matter.

Cobus Brits I am in agreement about the Heart and that is what we are judged by . Matthew 5 : 17-20 & Romans 11 : 11-31 indicate to me that OT & NT are part of one whole , like a man and woman become one . Each is separate , but make a greater whole / one person , that’s what I get out of Matt. & Romans . Just my thoughts .

You are correct in that we are NOT UNDER the Law just like we are not judged by our “works.” However, we are judged by our Fruit. If we desire to follow the Lord then we do produce Fruit, which some construe incorrectly as Being Under the Law. Can seem like a Catch 22.

First time commenter. Long time follower.
This has to be said again and understood now. The last time He was challenged on this issue was when the Lord said, “The Sabbath was made for Man, not Man for the Sabbath”. The Sabbath is a gift from the Father and it is unconditional. Anyone who still doesn’t understand this needs to read their New Testament again and pray deeply for the Spirt of Truth.
Friday, Saturday or Sunday. It does not matter. If we decide to start our week on Wednesday then our Sabbath is a Tuesday.
The clue is, that only the enemy practices “Divide and Conquer”. Our Lord and Master, Jesus, wants us united.
Stop this argument now. It is irrelevant and nothing but deception. There is no more time to waste on such petty feuds.

The Sabbath is also a test to see whether you will obey the rest of the commandments. It is a sign between the Lord and His people. There is simply only one day that the Lord designated as HIS day. Only one day that the Lord Hallowed. There is no where in the NT that does away with the Sabbath. The Sabbath is a date day with your bridegroom. Read the prophets in regard to profaning the Sabbath. Read Matthew 5:17-18. In Acts, you see the Apostles and Church still observing Sabbath and the Lord’s Feast days. If Sabbath is a gift, then accept it as it was given. Only one day was given as Shabbot.

It has been revealed that during the time our Lord and Master conducted his public work, accompanied by the Apostles and his whole entourage they worked tirelessly from Thursday to Tuesday. Their day of rest was a Wednesday. This is why they were “resting” on the Wednesday in the garden after the final discourse to the Sanhedrin in the Temple on Tuesday. As they did on every Wednesday.
One in seven is the only condition on the gift. No more, no less.

HI G.B. , the debates do get heated here and there are strong opinions , but as long as there are no insults , we are learning and coming to the Truth . From what the LORD has told me , when we all get home we are going to find none of us was completely right on earth or had all the truth and understanding of the Word . We are finite and so is our understanding , our differences is the spice of life to me for I find almost all on Z3 Love the LORD with all their heart , no matter where they are in their walk . `I enjoy the differences , I learn from them .

Country Girl, thanks for the warning about sowing division but what to make of Luke 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division? That does not mean that Christ WANTED to cause division but rather knowing Him is going to put you at odds with the prevailing religious systems of the day. So what happens when we do get these revelations of Him (Eph 1:17), are we to disregard them and stay where we are and make everyone happy so not to cause offense or do we accept it, move on and inevitably leave behind those who settled for less and thus cause this ‘division’ based on the difference of beliefs? No off course not, we love our brothers anyway even if what is causing the division (which mostly is just the fear of the unknown/being misled) stay between us. Imagine what it must have been for Jesus family who like everyone else believed in the Law and suddenly one day their brother acts as if he is the Son of God, the coming Messiah. Can you see how this new truth (which seemed to them a lie) cause division in the family? The same thing happens when for various reasons we start to feel comfortable with a level of truth and stay put, thinking we know it all which is contrary to Luke 2:52 in that Jesus continued to grow in wisdom. B. Hansen, if you believe Jesus, repented of the sin of unbelief and follow him you are a saint and not a sinner anymore. In 1Jn 3:9  we read “Everyone who has been born of God does not commit sin, because His seed remains in him, and he cannot sin, because he has been born of… Read more »

Cobus Brits, The Lord is so AMAZING! Ironically the Holy Spirit had me do an extensive study on 1John about 3 weeks ago. I know the verses you are referring to. He has also been teaching me about Agape Love, Deliverance Rom 7: 15-25, and the Fruit of the Spirit Gal. 5:16-26. Last night He told me to study the story in John concerning being Born Again, John 3:1-21. I will admit, I don’t understand everything yet, but after reading your post I went to my prayer spot and asked the Lord to make things clear to me, help me to understand what He is trying to show me. I was told John 15:10-17. I generally don’t post the actual verses, but this time I think it is important to do so. 10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. 11 “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. 12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may… Read more »

I really love Andrew Wommack, he is such solid Word based teacher with signs following. On his site I have downloaded many free mp3’s. All of them are excellent but these three rocked my world:
The positive ministry of the Holy Spirit:

and A better way to pray:

I was stunned when I learned how much power and authority God has entrusted to us but how our own unbelief and sin concioussness hindered Gods power from doing its work.
A cup of tea would be awesome – love talking about the Darling of heaven… and what is coming soon…

I was reading one of Andrew Wommack’s books and everything seemed fine until he started teaching that sin does not defile a Christian. He explained that it is only the flesh that sins but your spirit is still saved. Eve, darling, you won’t die if you eat the fruit. I immediately put the book down and cannot listen to anyone that deceives people. Every false prophet can speak the truth some of the time and that is what makes them so dangerous.

Jim, we are under grace but I still repent and confess my sin when I mess up. Eve wasn’t under grace and deliberately disobeyed God when she ate the apple.

Robert, there are millions of people that have been deceived into believing grace will cover their sins. Sin is a deliberate act of the will and the wages of sin is death. Eve also was deceived but that did not excuse her. We all have access to the blood of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit and will not be excused for sin but will receive of the wrath of God if we refuse to walk in holiness. Anyone teaching otherwise is a deceived deceiver and will give account.

Jim, if we are truly born again the law is written in our hearts and we are led by the Spirit of God and will not sin. We are new creatures sitting with Jesus who is not ashamed to call us brother, citizens of Heaven. I don’t believe in once saved always saved so we must continue eating the spiritual milk and meat of the word and have a personal relationship with God. If we begin to stray the Holy Spirit will convict us and we must repent and get back on course. We are saved by grace to love God and man which covers all God’s commandments. By their fruit ye shall know them. We have a part to play to remain saved.

AMEN !!! brother Robert, that is true. So many people don’t spend time in the word but instead rely on what the preacher tells them and will be horrified on the day of judgment and will suffer eternally for thier mistake.
Isa_24:16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

Jim, the idea that sins’ defilement is taken away looks quite heretical. But lets try and reason this out and see where we get. Sin is not just a word but the actual content of it is the defilement – the sting which is the wages that Paul speaks of in Rom 6:23 which leads to death. God is a spirit and thus this seperation and death must be on a spiritual level. When we got saved 1 John 3:9 clearly states ‘everyone who has been born of God does not commit sin, because His seed remains in him, and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God’. Following that God is spirit and we cannot sin anymore it must mean we cannot sin on a spiritual level if we had been truly born again. So it must be some place ‘else’ for sin to have a hold on us. Since we are spirit, soul and body, and sin cant affect the spirit, it must be one of the other two. We know that the body will die and we get in the end an incorruptible resurrected new body, it leaves only the soul (the flesh which is the mind, emotions and will). And this is where the battle lies with ourselves and the enemy and the area of which Paul says we must renew – Eph 4:23 (and be continually renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh, untarnished mental and spiritual attitude]) AMP. (Here spirit of the mind means the spirit in which we approach something) Now lets look at the defilement. When Jesus died, what happened? We know that in Getsemane he took all sins upon Himself and even sweated blood. Thats beginning to look like defilement of the sins taking hold and… Read more »

Cobus, after stacking bricks for the last 57 years since my salvation it is very clear to me that sins of the flesh will surely damn every soul.
Eph 5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named
among you, as becometh saints;
Eph 5:4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
Eph 5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

Maybe I can add one more brick. In John 16:8-10 Jesus says about the Holy Spirit ‘and when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. Here Jesus says what this sin not sins is – that of not believing on him. How can He say something like that if he hasnt dealt with the rest of the sins? One more thing, if any of those people described in Eph 5 believe and repent, does it mean Jesus has to die again to take the defilement of that persons’ sins away and again and again for any other person that came to Christ after he died the first time for it? Certainly not for we appropiate the forgiveness that has been extended for what has been achieved at the cross – a once for all offer that was the payment of all sins (and the contents therof – the defilement) The only thing Jesus couldnt die for was unbelief because that would have meant overriding our will. The rest He took care of. And unbelief is the sin that is the task of the Holy Spirit to reprove the world of. I guess in the end it boils down to the worldview one has of God. Are we looking at Him from a Law perspective which demands self to ‘achieve’ the unachievable or are we looking at God through grace where everything has been paid for but is hard on self because it means acceptance of ones fallen nature and being humbled in the process, learning what is on the… Read more »

Cobus, this reply is not so much for you as your mind seems set but for others that could be tempted to listen to your vain words and be decieved also.

Go, and sin no more. He would not command us to do the unachievable.

Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the
abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

We either overcome the flesh and it’s temptations or we end up in the Lake of Fire. There is no difference between an unbelieving liar and a believing liar. He has provided us with everything we need to live a holy, sinless life and there will be no excuse for not doing so.

G.B.
I agree, we can not be divided. I apologize if I have sent any contentious feeling over the web. That was not my intention. For months I have been led by the Holy Spirit to pray for the ability to speak boldly when directed. The Lord is teaching me to ‘dig my heels in’ when it really matters. To not bend or break.
Let me explain why I think this matters. I sincerely believe we will soon see the day we are forced to worship on Sunday. The One-World religion is already in the works with the Pope at the helm. Only problem is, this is not how God told His people to whorship. From the beginning Satan has been trying to interfere with the way God’s people worship. The Book of Daniel is a true gem on this entire subject. The story of the Firey Furnace and the Lion’s Den are both examples of God’s people (small, small remanent) being saved by God when they ‘dug their heels in’ and said NO, I will worship how my God tells me to worship, not how man tells me to worship. We need to KNOW what God says and stand by it, life or death. Don’t take my word for it, please take this to the Lord in prayer.
Side-note -about 6 weeks ago I started praying and asking that the Lord would give me revelation and wisdom. (I have prayed for discernment much longer.) Recently the Lord has been teaching me SO MUCH. The power of prayer is AMAZING! God Bless!

Thank you again John. The only way you could have said it better is to have inserted one more word as follows: “I will worship how my God, Jesus, tells me to worship, not how man tells me to worship.” Follow only the Holy Spirit, the spirit of Truth. Look to no man for salvation. For the Lord says, “The Kindom lives in the heart of man.”
As for the dark one’s intent. You are correct, but I am not sure the agreed day will be Sunday. This could be another of the reasons we (the remnant) will be targeted if we hold fast to Sunday. When the false prophet declares the Sabbath to be Saturday, to please the Sanhedrin or Friday to bring on board the Muslims. Or maybe all three so everyone gets something out of the new “One World Religion.” Stay tuned. It will be revealed. Fear not.

Sabbath keeping is a red flag in the true sense. It is the sign of the Lord as our creator and of his people who are sanctified by Him. Ex 20:11 31:13. This is the hidden manna – the truth whose time is come – that we are to gather a double portion of on the sixth day, the preparation day and hold it in our hearts into the millennium when we will worship the Lord from one Sabbath to the next and one New Moon to the next. Is. 66:23. In contrast to the feasts which are full of prophetic meaning but optional, the Sabbath is at the heart of the covenant, written by the finger of God in stone, by the unchanging I AM.

Rock on Sathya! I do understand perfectly where you are coming from. There is coming a time when we will discover that the issues we felt were so I’m important to our Christianity are not! We so often major on the minors and minor on the majors.

Micah 6:8 (NKJV) He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?

Thank you for sharing this amazing message. I have really felt an urgency to be ready this week. Sometimes I just feel it so deeply that I just start crying. I am so anxious to meet my Lord, but even Jesus was so burdened before he was arrested that he sweated blood. His disciples kept falling asleep even though he kept telling them to stay awake and pray. That is how I feel when I try to talk to people. I feel it so strong, and everyone is falling asleep. I am so thankful for those that are feeling it too as it keeps me from feeling like I am going crazy which is what most of my friends and family are thinking. Yes, the hour is very late. Keep looking up for our redemption is near. To God be the glory forever and ever, Amen.

thanks christine. i agree with what you say – im trying to discover and disassociate myself from babylon as we speak – in fact this has been on my mind for some time. your comments about ishtar and easter are spot on. i was listening to a “christian” radio station today (im in australia) and they were advertising this years easter egg hunt for the community and the kids. it shocks me that people who purportedly are christian can indulge in something the world celebrates and is purely pagan

Blessings Brian (and Christine). I am very much on the same page. The commercial promotion of Babylonian Easter with bunnies, eggs, etc. (like Christmas and Santa Clause) seems to blind and deceive people in a way that removes any desire to learn about and pursue the true appointed Feasts. My family will be enjoying a Seder Passover meal this evening and I have no interest at all in attending any of the ‘Easter celebrations’ at my church – which unfortunately is completely oblivious to the harmful pagan impact and influence of these events.

For anyone interested in learning more about the nefarious pagan infiltration of Christianity, Pastor Scott Velain has done some great teaching on this subject as it relates to Easter. It can be found here: http://www.holyimpactministries.com/passover.htm

tends to alienate me from people but I care what God thinks, not what man thinks. i want to be right in Gods eyes not mans…

Christine, Thank you for this word. It is a true blessing. Ironically I was called last night, by the Holy Spirit, to reread the portion in Exodus concerning the taking of the Passover lamb and forward, (Chap 12) and was prompted to fast today. Yesterday I attended the funeral of a niece who took her own life. She was married with two children. Seemingly, no reason for her to take the actions she did. As I looked around the crowd of mourners I could see many, many lost souls that are living in satans world and not understanding what is going on around them. They know something isn’t right, but they just aren’t sure why. Some are blaming it on cell phones, and don’t realize it is the lack of God in their lives. I sincerely wanted to get up and say something but I had not been prompted by the Holy Spirit to do so, so I knew it was best that I be still and allow God to go first. I know the day will come and I believe the Lord is preparing the soil. Jesus desires that no one should parish. Satan is banking on the fact that he will continue to lead them on to hell with satanic whispers in their ears, but God has another plan, a plan that includes setting the captives free! I feel blessed that I can be apart of this. I have hope through the Love of our Lord. I pray the Lord will strengthen and prepare me for the work ahead, that He will put pure agape love in my heart and fill me with compassion for those who are seeking. I don’t fully understand what it is all going to look like, but I TRUST in our Mighty Lord,… Read more »

Over here many, many Christians go to a church service on Gd Friday as well as Sunday. My husband and I joke about them going to a “dead Jesus” service on Friday. Some of these people don’t even go to church much on regular Sundays. This is religious behaviour. I refuse, and have done so for many years now, to go to any Easter services because they are dead in religion. The Friday services are about as depressing in their fake solemnity as it gets. God is calling His people out of dead religion,deception and worship of false gods. It is called ‘syncretism’ by some, where there is a mixture of the holy and the profane. The Lord will no longer tolerate it. He says it is time to come our of Babylon. This is coming spiritually out of Babylonian ways that have kept His people bound for centuries. But here is the thing: We must allow the Lord to convict us, we must ask Him to show us if there is anything we do or practice that is not of Him. Anything at all that would separate us. Anywhere at all we are allowing ourselves to be deceived. I am speaking to all here. Those who now see that Passover is the way to go are just as capable of turning that into a religious practice too. And religion in all its forms is dead. We are to be in a relationship now under the blood of Jesus. Everything we do and think and say is to come out of a place of intimate relationship with a Holy Father God. THAT right there, is the bottom line!! By the way, thanks so much Christine Beadsworth for this message. So much of value here that you have clearly gleaned from… Read more »

Wow! Religion is like a skeletal system. It is dead in and of itself. I agree that so many many people never seems add The Life that makes the skeletal system come alive in everyway. On the other hand, many people that have found and The Life (The Holy Spirit); the skeletal system is vital and not an obstacle to intimacy with Our Lord Jesus Christ. We can become “religious” about not being religious

I had a driving “Need” to hear a Shofar blowing this morning. I don’t have one and most likely would not be able to blow it anyway if I did. I googled Shofar blowing. I found one called “Shofar Wars” I think that was the title) and listened to it twice. It filled me with Holy Spirit presence. Incredible!!

I agree that we shouldn’t let oil, festivals, and things of that nature take our eyes off the Lord. He, and only He is our rescuer, our strong tower to whom we should run to. But also, for a long time, I wanted to know what our Lord’s Hebrew name is, and it was important to me. I finally came across literature explaining His name is Yeshua. My name is Corina, and if I go to France, people will call me Corrine, which is okay but I would much rather hear my actual name spoken. I hope that makes sense. I’m not always great with articulating my thoughts… I know Jesus is loving, understanding, merciful, and He hears our prayers and knows our hearts, whether we call Him Yeshua or Jesus.

Im a Torah based believer vin Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour, and this message is confirming what I believe, stay away from bunnies symbolism and Easter (pagan goddess Ishtar/Ashtaroth). I already had a Passover meal with a couple of family members and Jesus Christ is glorified through that dinner and some symbolism of chocolate lambs. Good Friday is coming and yes I will be mindful of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and instead of saying Happy Easter, its Happy Resurrection Day. The Torah is the first 5 books of the Bible and it means Law, Righteousness, Teachings, Statutes. In Marthew 23:23b, “law, judgment, mercy, and faith” are all important to our Lord and Saviour. Lets get back to His Words and dont forget that the entire Bible is profitable for teaching and righteousness. And lets rebuke any “anti semitism” and and any Catholicism/Constantinian influence in our beliefs. God Bless you all on your journeys with Jesus!:)

I’m just as cautious of those who warn against following Hebraic roots as I am of those who follow paganism. Discernment called for on this matter. Israel/Judah/the Jews did not “invent” the feasts of the LORD. Yehovah did. And as one commenter noted previously, the feasts are His appointed times. Those who raise objections to marking Yehovah’s feasts might want to ponder the following: Isa 56:3 – 7 NASB – Let not the foreigner who has joined himself to the LORD say, “The LORD will surely separate me from His people.” Nor let the eunuch say, “Behold, I am a dry tree.” For thus says the LORD, “To the eunuchs who keep My sabbaths, And choose what pleases Me, And hold fast My covenant, To them I will give in My house and within My walls a memorial, And a name better than that of sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name which will not be cut off. Also the foreigners who join themselves to the LORD, To minister to Him, and to love the name of the LORD, To be His servants, every one who keeps from profaning the sabbath And holds fast My covenant; Even those I will bring to My holy mountain And make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be acceptable on My altar; For My house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples.” It is the ceremonial/sacrificial laws which are no longer to be practiced. The covenantal law of Sinai (“10 commandments”), the behavioral constructs for a relationship of obedience with Yehovah are still pertinent. To be sure, the feasts were marked with sacrifices and offerings. Today we mark such events minus the sacrifices, knowing that Jesus was our perfect… Read more »
