REVEAL THE LAMB

In the Old Testament, Passover was a type and shadow of the redeemer, liberator, deliverer, and Savior to come – Jesus.
This year Passover begins this evening at sunset, coinciding with the very day we remember the crucifixion of Christ on this “Good Friday”. And so it feels especially holy today as we celebrate the beginning of Passover, and the last of the plagues in Egypt before the Israelites were freed. “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 . The blood applied to the doorframes was that from a spotless lamb, whose innocent blood was sacrificed so that the death Angel would passover their homes, sparing their firstborn.

I do not think even with the most powerful revelations of the atonement for sin we will fully understand the blood sacrifice of our risen Lord on this side of Heaven. Perhaps the closest was Jesus’ cousin John the Baptist who proclaimed “The next day John saw Jesus coming to him and said, Look! There is the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world! [Exod. 12:3; Isa. 53:7.]” John 1:29.
And that wasn’t the first time John recognized the Lord by the Spirit, thirty years earlier the two miracle babies John and Jesus had an encounter while in their mother’s wombs.

“And listen, even your relative Elizabeth has also conceived a son in her old age; and she who was called barren is now in her sixth month. For with God nothing [is or ever] shall be impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word.” And the angel left her. Now at this time Mary arose and hurried to the hill country, to a city of Judah (Judea), and she entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, her baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and empowered by Him.” Luke‬ ‭1:36-41‬ ‭AMP‬‬

The fulfillment of the Word had come, and the for-running prophet in the womb had recognized Him, the perfect Lamb of God slain before the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8), though as a man John recognized Jesus as the Son of God after the Holy Spirit revealed this to him. “This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.” Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”” John‬ ‭1:30-34‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Jesus is the spotless lamb. He is the firstborn (Romans 8:29) and His blood made a way for you and I to forever be free from death with the gift of reconciliation and eternal life. “Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new batch, just as you are, still unleavened. For Christ our Passover Lamb has been sacrificed. Therefore, let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with leaven of vice and malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and [untainted] truth.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭5:7-8‬ ‭AMP. His blood cleanses, His blood washes us, His blood purifies u‬‬s to be seen as holy in His sight. His blood does for us that which we could absolutely never do for ourselves. And it takes the Holy Spirit to reveal the depths of this truth. May the Holy Spirit reveal Jesus, the power of the crucifixion and His atonement like you have never experienced before; Behold our Beautiful, Flawless Passover Lamb!

Below is a word I released two years ago beginning Passover that I believe is significant for now and I pray also blesses you. https://ablazeglobalproductions.com/2020/04/08/a-vision-of-blessing-and-birthing/

Yielding for Completion

Every time to you say yes to God, every time you yield to the work of the Holy Spirit, every time you look to Jesus you are partnering with the supernatural work of completion. Keep giving the Lord your agreement, He is forming you so that there will be nothing missing, nothing lacking, nothing broken. Oh how He loves us!

“And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.” Philippians‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

“I pray with great faith for you, because I’m fully convinced that the One who began this gracious work in you will faithfully continue the process of maturing you until the unveiling of our Lord Jesus Christ!” Philippians‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭26:3-4‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Finding Fulfillment

Often times we are frustrated and offended with people because we are looking to them to meet a need that should be found in our relationship with Jesus.

Part of the maturing in the Body of Christ in this hour is TOTAL DEPENDENCY upon Him. The old wine skin model creates a focus on leaders and people – and while we are to bear one another’s burdens, love one another, etc – at our core we shouldn’t look to others to meet our needs. Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. All eyes on King Jesus, everything finds fulfillment in Him!

“Who could ever wrap their minds around the riches of God, the depth of his wisdom, and the marvel of his perfect knowledge? Who could ever explain the wonder of his decisions or search out the mysterious way he carries out his plans? For who has discovered how the Lord thinks or is wise enough to be the one to advise him in his plans? Or: “Who has ever first given something to God that obligates God to owe him something in return?” For out of him, the sustainer of everything, came everything, and now everything finds fulfillment in him. May all praise and honor be given to him forever! Amen!”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭11:33-36‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“Cross My Heart”

I asked the Lord to speak to me, and He put this song in my heart. He’s the best “confirmation”; the Name above every name, the Word made flesh, the very Spirit of prophecy, He is Truth and all we’ll ever need!

Every time I read or sing the lyrics, ‘Just to rest upon His promise,’ I see a picture of a face resting on His heart. A sweet reminder that’s where He wants us, resting upon His heart and loving Him well. Surrender … trust… love … be still and know the promises are safe within the most faithful One who keeps them with all His heart.

“Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His word;
Just to rest upon His promise;
Just to know, Thus saith the Lord.

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him,
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er,
Jesus, Jesus, Precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more.”

Love In Obedience Is Heaven’s Success

The greatest gift you could give the Lord in 2022 (and forever will be) is your heart. We love the Lord with a devoted heart to Him through our obedience, as Jesus said, “If you [really] love Me, you will keep and obey My commandments.” John‬ ‭14:15‬ ‭AMP‬‬.

Success in Heaven is measured by having lived a life of obedience to the Lord on earth. “So, beloved, since you are looking forward to these things, be diligent and make every effort to be found by Him [at His return] spotless and blameless, in peace [that is, inwardly calm with a sense of spiritual well-being and confidence, having lived a life of obedience to Him].” ‭‭2 Peter‬ ‭3:14‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Draw me Father

We need to know and understand the persons of the Godhead to love Jesus more; their roles, character and attributes will actually lead us to love Jesus.

Under the banner of Love (Song of Solomon 2:4) we are drawn by the Father, wooed by the Spirit, and received by Jesus.

“No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him [giving him the desire to come to Me].” John 6:44 AMP

Ask the Father to draw you nearer to His heart and His ways, ask the Holy Spirit to lead you Jesus, and ask Jesus to encounter you with Himself.

“Until now you have not asked [the Father] for anything in My name; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy may be full and complete.” ‭‭John‬ ‭16:24‬ ‭AMP‬‬

““ Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking and you will find; knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives, and he who keeps on seeking finds, and to him who keeps on knocking, it will be opened. ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:7-8‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Truth’s Light

Today the Lord is saying, you can trust His leadership. He will show you the path of life. He is the Word, you will find Him there.

“Truth’s shining light guides me in my choices and decisions; the revelation of your Word makes my pathway clear.” Psalms‬ ‭119:105‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“Because of you, I know the path of life, as I taste the fullness of joy in your presence. At your right side I experience divine pleasures forevermore!”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭16:11‬ ‭TPT‬‬

HAVE YOU DIED TODAY?

In the world of the Spirit, dreams are fulfilled through dying to them in the natural world and giving the Spirit precedence in your life. When I graduated Bible college many years ago, the Lord told me to “die to your dreams and visions so I can resurrect them”. And there began my journey as a young woman of dying to myself to learn how to allow Christ to live through me, and one of my founding messages I share often.

Death has become a center point of my testimony because here I have found resurrection life. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:11. In my love of word studies, long ago I discovered the word testimony used in this scripture reference in Revelation is the Greek word marturia (evidence given) from the word martus which is where we get the word martyr. So many people want a “testimony”, and while it is good to testify of ones overcoming – the true testament or evidence given of life is of ones dying to self. So if you want a testimony you need to die and ‘let the Overcomer out‘, for it is because of the victory of the cross, we have life.

“Jesus said to all of his followers, “If you truly desire to be my disciple, you must disown your life completely, embrace my ‘cross’ as your own, and surrender to my ways. For if you choose self-sacrifice, giving up your lives for my glory, you will discover true life. But if you choose to keep your lives for yourselves, you will lose what you try to keep.” Luke 9:23-24 TPT

“My old identity has been co-crucified with Christ and no longer lives. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his life through me— we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, dispensing his life into mine!” Galatians 2:20 TPT

When you allow the life of Christ to flow through you, Heaven and earth align to see His love and powerful works readily move through you. You will be in sync with the Lord’s plans and purposes and divine alignment will become the standard as you walk in the footsteps of the Resurrected King who has gone before you.

Have you died today?

But for Love, I will drink this cup

The paradox of love and suffering. In love Christ suffered for us, and He still suffers for our love. Our hearts may suffer long on this side of Heaven but we become like Him and know Him in this mysterious realm. Some of us have more prolonged aches than others, and many times we ask, “not this cup, please”. The cup of long suffering. But for love, for union with Him.

“Love suffers long”.
1 Corinthians 13:4

“And just as we experience the abundance of Christ’s own sufferings, even more of God’s comfort will cascade upon us through our union with Christ.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭

“And I continually long to know the wonders of Jesus and to experience the overflowing power of his resurrection working in me. I will be one with him in his sufferings and become like him in his death. Only then will I be able to experience complete oneness with him in his resurrection from the realm of death.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:10-11‬ ‭

The Mindset of Miracles

If I told you that your miracle was on the way, you would more readily approve or ‘like’ this message. If I suggested that you repent, you would probably disengage or ignore the message. But what if repentance was the key to your miracle? To repent means to change your mind and be restored to a higher way of thinking.

I encourage you to ask the Lord how your mind could change. Are there thought patterns that hinder your moving forward?

The Heavenly Kingdom is at hand, and we must change our thinking to perceive and receive it. John the Baptist prepared the way for the coming of Christ with this message. And we will prepare the way for Christ’s return with this message as well. Jesus worked miracles as a sign and to testify He was from His Father’s Kingdom. Shift your mind, the patterns of this world are not from the patterns of Heaven. The gospel is power unimaginable to all who will receive it, so I bless you with a greater measure of faith to attain the fullness held in His Name.

“IN THOSE days there appeared John the Baptist, preaching in the Wilderness (Desert) of Judea And saying, Repent (think differently; change your mind, regretting your sins and changing your conduct), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭3:1-2‬ ‭AMPC‬‬
