On the morning of April 8, 2020 the first day of Passover at 1:35 am I had a vision. I saw a bright door from heaven opening bursting forth with Iight. Out of the open doorway and pouring out in a whirl I saw images in the form of emojis. The emojis came to life, the dove with olive branch flying over a rainbow, I saw a birthday balloon, the wind and tornado swirl, fire and diamonds. I heard “new door of opportunity” and when I saw the balloon again I heard “heavens highest blessings” which is something I mostly only write or say on a birthday message. I also heard “Jacobson’s”. These images kept pouring out of the bright golden door like a living river. My perspective was that my eyes were looking up to the door, and these images were flowing downward.
Look up to the Lord today! Acknowledge Him as He is the Passover Lamb, and as Heavens blessings are pouring down upon us.
This is the 3,333 Passover to occur on the Hebraic calendar. 3333 in the Greek means a ‘calling from one place to another; call, summon, invite’. 3333 in the Hebrew translates to rest. Hebrews 4:11 writes that ‘we labor to enter His rest’. Three’s are also significant in birthing numbers as well, and the Lord has been specifically speaking to me in three’s and about birthing for a couple of months now. As I was spending time processing my vision this morning I happen to notice the time stamp on my to-go coffee cup 10:23:33; if you carry over the 1st number (1) to the (2) second, you have 3333. If you leave as is, passover is the symbolic of the (1) Firstborn (2) Double Covenant Message (in this word), (333) Birthing .The time of the vision was 1:35 a.m., if you look at 1:35 add the 1+5 = 6 divide by 2 (Double Covenant) equals 333. The first day of Passover, April 8, 2020 is significant with the number 8 meaning New Beginnings. [study of numbers and translations resourced from Strong’s concordance]
There is a New Beginning, open door, blessing, opportunity, promise etc being born today. I believe it’s because of the Mercy of God, and as a sign of the blood covenant. Today we celebrate the beginning of Passover, “For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment [proving their helplessness]. I am the Lord. The blood shall be for a token or sign to you upon [the doorposts of] the houses where you are, [that] when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall be upon you to destroy you when I smite the land of Egypt. [I Cor. 5:7; Heb. 11:28.]” Exodus 13-12:12 . In the vision I saw the dove with olive branch and a rainbow. Another sign of God’s covenant in the Old Testament was the dove and rainbow after the flood. “I set my rainbow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth”. Genesis 9:13 Double signs of God’s covenant in this year of 2020.
In the New Testament Jesus became the Passover Lamb, and symbolically He offered Himself as a sacrifice; The perfect Lamb of God to take away the sins of the world. (John 1:29) This sacrifice became humanities greatest invitation to enter an everlasting blood covenant, through believing that the blood of Jesus shed was for the salvation of all mankind, with the promise of forever being adopted as sons and daughters and deliverance from eternal death.
In Exodus 11:5 the firstborn in the land and the firstborn of all living things is described in the amplified version as, “the pride, hope, and joy” of Egypt. God’s firstborn, Jesus, is His pride, hope, and joy too. God spared the Israelites in the Old Testament and in the New Testament He provided a way – once and for all – to spare mankind and His created. You are His pride and joy. God loves you that much, that He sent His only Son to die, as Jesus was and is the hope for the world. Though we are His pride and joy, we are not in complete union with Him until we believe in the hope of His Son Jesus. Jesus, the mediator, the middle man, the first born among many brethren (Romans 8:29), the hope between pride and joy that binds together a three fold agreement in the plan of eternity.
Heaven’s Highest Blessings
Additionally in regards to pride, hope, and joy is the rainbow I saw in the vision- not relating to pride as some assume, but God’s pride over His created redeemed us with promise. A rainbow symbolizes promise and covenant, and is filled with colors of radiance. “Those who look to Him are radiant with joy; their faces will never be ashamed.” Psalm 34:5 As we look to the promise of Jesus, and the eternal covenant we are filled with joy and all shame of former bondage (Egypt) is removed.
Exodus 11:6 says there was a great cry of heartache and sorrow throughout the land of Egypt because of the plague, none so great before or after. But under God’s covenant it is written, “The blessing of the Lord enriches, and He adds no sorrow to it.” Proverbs 10:22 His promise protects.
The dove with the olive branch was flying over the rainbow in my vision. I believe the Holy Spirit is hovering over the promises God has given us; reigning in peace, joy and hope. As the door of Heaven is open and the birthing of the new has begun, so moves the activating flow of water and His Spirit and from conception to fruition to completion He is guarding and watching over His word to perform it.
When I saw the wind swirl in the vision, naturally I thought of the Holy Spirit, but I also thought of The Upper Room, the recorded place where the Apostles experienced an outpouring of God’s presence through the Holy Spirit (Acts 2). Before Jesus began the fullness of His ministry He fasted for 40 days before He revealed that he was the Son of God, and upon the completion of the 40 days of fasting it is written, “From that time on Jesus began to proclaim his message with these words: “Keep turning away from your sins and come back to God, for heaven’s kingdom realm is now accessible.”” Matthew 4:17 TPT. When the time came for Jesus Christ to be crucified the purpose was to fulfill the Old Covenant so that the Kingdom realm would always be accessible. Jesus died and rose again on the THIRD day (our new BIRTH right through salvation) and in Acts 1:3 it is written He visited with the apostles for 40 days after His resurrection before ascending into Heaven . Jesus dwelled alone 40 days before ministry and then dwelled together with the Apostles 40 days after the completion of His ministry work on earth; 4+4 = 8. April 8, 2020 the “beginning of our new beginning” on the first day of Passover. Passover lasts a total of 8 days and I believe the birthing has begun and we will see and experience in the remaining days an increase of the favor and blessing flowing from Heaven.
Birthing the Blessing – The Wrestle and The Rest – Double Promise
The last thing I heard while seeing the vision was “Jacobson’s”. When I graduated from Bible College I moved back to my hometown in the autumn season in obedience, not because it was my personal desire. During the beginning of this time I interned at a local crisis pregnancy center in order to complete my graduation status. I also began working at a high end department store, Jacobson’s, where I sold children’s shoes.
Jacobson as a surname is translated as “son of Jacob” (wikipedia). Jacob in the Bible was the twin of Esau, and was given a second name after wrestling with the Lord. Jacob was also called Israel – meaning “he will rule as God” (in posterity) and I believe the Lord is saying He is the Heavenly Father who provides the seed (in the natural the father provides the seed for childbearing) and is giving double seed for a double portion as we wrestle and rest with Him in obedience. Though wrestling and resting may seem counter intuitive, it is not, for “we labor to enter His rest”. Hebrews 4:11
“So Jacob was left alone, and a Man [came and] wrestled with him until daybreak. When the Man saw that He had not prevailed against Jacob, He touched his hip joint; and Jacob’s hip was dislocated as he wrestled with Him. Then He said, “Let Me go, for day is breaking.” But Jacob said, “I will not let You go unless You declare a blessing on me.” So He asked him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Jacob.” And He said, “Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men and have prevailed.” Then Jacob asked Him, “Please tell me Your name.” But He said, “Why is it that you ask My name?” And He declared a blessing [of the covenant promises] on Jacob there. So Jacob named the place Peniel (the face of God), saying, “For I have seen God face to face, yet my life has not been snatched away.” Now the sun rose on him as he passed Penuel (Peniel), and he was limping because of his hip.” Genesis 32: 24-31 AMP
This is a time in history that will forever mark us; the marking of His saints as they wrestle and like Jacob and are imprinted by the touch of God (invitation), and the marking of the blood over us during Passover (rest). We are wrestling to labor to “rule as God” in posture over this earth. “And He raised us up together with Him [when we believed], and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, [because we are] in Christ Jesus, [and He did this] so that in the ages to come He might [clearly] show the immeasurable and unsurpassed riches of His grace in [His] kindness toward us in Christ Jesus [by providing for our redemption].” Ephesians 2: 6,7
Jacob translates as “heel-catcher” in the Hebrew, “Afterward his brother came out, and his hand grasped Esau’s heel, so he was named Jacob (one who grabs by the heel, supplanter). Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.” Genesis 25:26 AMP A child knows what a Father has promised, and will remind them boldly because they look to Him in faith believing what was said to be truth; for this is the purity of their trust relationship. Before the encounter with God, Jacob had a dream (Jacob’s ladder) where God made another promise, “Behold, I am with you and will keep [careful watch over you and guard] you wherever you may go, and I will bring you back to this [promised] land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” Genesis 28:15. I believe Jacob’s faithfulness to remember and steward the promise in the dream gave him the strength for the wrestle. I believe if we approach the throne room of grace with boldness and with the faith of a child, and seek the face of our Father (intimacy), petitioning “I will not let You go unless You declare a blessing on me.” that He will open a door in the Heaven’s like in the vision, and pour out over us a double portion anointing. This double portion anointing birthed from belief and declaration will simultaneously prepare us for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit as in the days of Acts 2, for the latter glory will be greater than the former. (Haggai 2:9)
The provision of heaven is coming! Symbolically, Jacobson’s “a high end department store” is where I worked upon graduation of Bible college where I sold children’s shoes, but I also served at the crisis pregnancy center at the same time (to complete the graduation). The provision is beginning to flow, but it is also critical we are preparing for the large masses of spiritual children yet to be born, as these pregnancies were in crisis. We are Jacob’s sons, as Jesus is from the lineage of Jacob, and we are His sons. Heaven’s storehouse has opened it’s door to provide shoes that represent the gospel of peace to the newborn children, sons and daughters born of the new covenant that will continue to carry His Good News into all the world for His end time harvest. This is the beginning of the End.
Jacob’s firstborn son Joseph from his second wife Rachel who bore two children, was a dreamer and redeemer, and ultimately united his family through forgiveness and saved them from starvation (Genesis 42-45). I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, “an invitation to fulfill the rest” … Just as I interned in the crisis pregnancy center, I believe this is a critical changing of season that we must yield to, we must obey in order to birth the dreams of our Redeemer who was named the firstborn among many. An invitation to birth and release His blueprints and His plans that will nourish this generation and the ones to come. This new season will ultimately carry us into the completion, even into the end of the age “fulfilling the rest”.
Preparing for the Promise
Quarantine originates from Italian quaranta giorni, literally “space of forty days”, as sourced from the Oxford dictionary. Jesus ministered to the Apostles for 40 days after resurrecting. After Jesus’ ascension the Apostles experienced the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, all of what Jesus had promised. In my vision I saw the tornado wind but I knew it was not associated with danger it was the Holy Spirit – “On the day Pentecost was being fulfilled, all the disciples were gathered in one place. Suddenly they heard the sound of a violent blast of wind rushing into the house from out of the heavenly realm. The roar of the wind was so overpowering it was all anyone could bear! Then all at once a pillar of fire appeared before their eyes. It separated into tongues of fire that engulfed each one of them. They were all filled and equipped with the Holy Spirit and were inspired to speak in tongues—empowered by the Spirit to speak in languages they had never learned!” Acts 4-:12 TPT
Could it be that Jesus wants to dwell and rest with you during this quarantine, perhaps He wants to talk to you about the things concerning the Kingdom of God just as he had with the Apostles? (Acts 1:3) Perhaps Heaven is calling to mankind… 3333 … the invitation to rest with Him to prepare you for the blessing.
“While being together and eating with them, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, “Of which,” He said, “you have heard Me speak. For John baptized with water, but you will be baptized and empowered and united with the Holy Spirit, not long from now.” Acts 1:4,5
Prepare in the waiting! Wait for what the Father has promised! The Apostles did not leave Jerusalem until the visitation from the Holy Spirit came, they waited in the Upper Room. They did not leave and say, “the Holy Spirit will come and find us”, no they waited in obedience just as Jesus commanded them. Do not miss the visitation because it is coming. Many of us are confined to small spaces and rooms, do not despise this positioning, do not underestimate the birthing room, for what you’ve longed and prayed for is coming. As the Spirit of Lord has been speaking to me for months, He is preparing us for the hour of power. “But you will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses to tell people about Me even to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
Wait and hope for the Lord! Be encouraged, from Passover to Pentecost you will experience an increase of His presence and blessings. He will pour out His Spirit on all flesh. The beginning and the birthing of the Harvest is here. As Jesus told the Apostles, “not long from now”. (scribed April 8, 2020)
