Words To Live By

By Kathi Pelton

I love words! Being a writer means that paper is my canvas and words are my paint. Finding the right word to describe something seen in the spirit or in the natural is vital to helping the reader to understand and have vision.

Our ministry is called, “Inscribe Ministries” based off of the verse from Habakkuk 2:2 that says,

“Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.”

To write a vision requires the right words which bring about understanding to the reader or listener of “how to run!“ It’s so powerful.

Jesus is called the 𝐿𝑖𝑣𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑊𝑜𝑟𝑑 because He encompasses everything found within the Word. All creation came forth from the words He spoke. There is power in words; to bless or to curse, to speak life or speak death, to empower or disempower and to build up or to tear down, to create or to destroy.

Our words matter! We must ask the Lord to train our mouths to speak words that bless, give life and empower those around us to run. Your words are usually a good way to x-ray your heart,

“A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.“ Luke 6:45

This is why we must follow the wisdom found in Philippians 4:8,

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

As we think on these things they renew our hearts and minds causing what comes forth from our mouths to profit those who hear our words. When I was a new believer my heart and mind still needed to be renewed by the Word therefore critical, negative, fretful and judgmental words would leak out; always exposing what needed to be cleaned out of my heart. God was not condemning me, but if I were honest, my words were a clear sign of where my heart needed to be cleaned and renewed.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10

When my husband and I were directing a house of prayer for Patricia King she would lead prayer sessions with us where we would “decree the Word of God.“ These times trained our team and all who attended how much power comes forth as we decreed His written Word! I quickly saw the fruitful harvest that would come when I spoke aloud His Word over my life and my family’s lives. Decreeing His Word is like allowing your heart to be strained through the Spirit of Truth; filtering out all the dross.

I remember asking the Lord to put a coal of fire near my lips so that I would not speak anything unholy.

“So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of hosts.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged.”” Isaiah‬ ‭6:5-7‬ ‭

These verses come right before the verse that says, “Here am I, send me.” This is so important before being “sent.” We must be sent with words of life, hope, truth that prosper and edify the hearer. We must go forth with hearts that have been made clean.

As we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel regarding this global quarantine, I believe that the eyes of the Lord are searching the earth for the ones He might send. But let us first pray the scriptures written above. We need pure hearts, clean hands, words that have been freed from the grip of iniquity and thoughts that profitable to the hearer! We need words that release vision and cause the sent ones to run with purpose.

Today, listen to your words so that you can do a ℎ𝑒𝑎𝑟𝑡 𝑐ℎ𝑒𝑐𝑘. Then, if you find that your words are revealing areas that need to be renewed and cleansed; don’t enter into guilt or condemnation because God loves it when we receice His lovingkindness that brings discipline. He is so happy that you desire a clean heart and He has provided you 𝑊𝑂𝑅𝐷𝑆 𝑇𝑂 𝐿𝐼𝑉𝐸 𝐵𝑌.

It’s time to prepare to be sent ones! We must carry words of life that bear fruit wherever they are sown.

Grace and Help in the Month of May

By Kathi Pelton

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭

The Lord spoke to me that today begins a month of extravagant and extraordinary grace; 𝑔𝑟𝑎𝑐𝑒 𝑢𝑝𝑜𝑛 𝑔𝑟𝑎𝑐𝑒! He is inviting His people to 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙗𝙤𝙡𝙙𝙡𝙮 to His throne of grace where you will receice mercy, grace and help for 𝗔𝗟𝗟 that you need.

Need often causes us to become aware of our weakness and dependency upon God. Therefore, this time of need has created an invitation to “come boldly before His throne of grace.“ His throne is where our help comes from. Most are standing in unemployment lines, lines to enter grocery stores and welfare lines but there is a place that there is no line, no wait and no need to prove or explain your need- it is a place of help, grace and compassion. There is no fear or shame in this place; only help and joy.

“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
‭‭II Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬ ‭

In May we will see a great manifestation of the strength (power) of God being made perfect (manifest) in the midst of need (weakness). The power of God will rest upon you in ways that strengthen you, uphold you and help you.

This is not a time to come under a spirit of despair because of your need or your weakness but it is time to be clothed in bold confidence and approach the throne where our Savior is seated and distributes grace without measure- He just says, “𝘾𝙤𝙢𝙚.“

Get ready to be a walking testimony of His power and grace coming uoon you! Many will ask you how you are thriving in this time and you will take them by the hand and lead them to the throne of grace to receive help.

We will have the spirit of prophesy resting upon us as the testimony of His faithfulness is made known to those around us.

“I will make known the Lord’s faithful love and the Lord’s praiseworthy acts, because of all the Lord has done for us — even the many good things he has done for the house of Israel, which he did for them based on his compassion and the abundance of his faithful love.” Isaiah‬ ‭63:7‬ ‭

May you approach Him with bold confidence as we enter the month of May!

It’s Time For Your Vats To Overflow!

By Kathi Pelton

Did you know that as believers we are not under the control of the chaos, confusion and circumstances of the world around us? The promises of God are above the bad reports of the earth below.

Today I was praying through the first and second chapters of the Book of Proverbs and I was so taken by the amazing wisdom that produces the promises of God to be made manifest in our lives as we “listen and obey.”

Here are just a few of them:

• If you cry out for insight and understanding, God will give you wisdom, knowledge and understanding. (2:1-4)

• As you receive wisdom, knowledge and understanding you will gain success! (2:6)

• As you live in integrity God will guard and protect your path. (2:7-9)

• As you walk in the wisdom of God you will be rescued from darkness. (2:9-20)

• As you live an upright life you will “inhabit the land and remain in it.” The wicked will be cut off and uprooted from it. (2:21-22)

• As you keep God’s commands He will give you many days, a full life and well-being. (3:1-2)

• As you hold fast to loyalty and faithfulness you will find favor WITH GOD AND MAN! (3:3-4)

• As you trust in the Lord and acknowledge His ways (not depending on your own understanding) He will guide you on the RIGHT paths. (3:5-6)

• As you fear the Lord and turn away from evil, healing will come to your body and strength to your bones. (3:7-8)

And, one last promise! This is a key one…

• As you honor the Lord with your processions and the first fruits of your increase He promises that YOUR BARNS WILL BE COMPLETELY FILLED AND YOUR VATS WILL OVERFLOW WITH NEW WINE!!

There are so many more promises that a lifestyle of wisdom and obedience ushers in. This is part of the amazing alignments that have been taking place. To live apart from obedience that comes from His wisdom is like trying to take a drink from a water fountain and turning it on but not aligning your mouth with the stream of water. The lack of alignment causes the flowing water to pour down the drain; never quenching your thirst.

We must open our spiritual mouths and then align our lives with the flowing wisdom that fills our lives to overflowing! Then our barns will be filled completely and the “vats” of our lives will overflow (a vat is a large tank that holds liquid). It’s time to hold the liquid of the new wine of His glory and His promises!

While the world eats of the “grapes of wrath” let us, as God’s people, be filled with the new wine that is grown in the vineyards of wisdom and oneness.

It’s time to align to drink the new wine!

Surely Goodness Will Follow You!

By Kathi Pelton

Last week I was listening to a pastor and very successful businessman who was talking about the key to his success. He said it is believing the “surelys” in the Bible! First he brought us to Hebrews 6:14 that says,

“Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭6:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Then he brought us to the most known Psalm— Psalm 23, verse 6 where it says,

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…” Psalms‬ ‭23:6‬ ‭

He said that every morning he begins His day by praying and decreeing the “surely” truths over his life. I am calling it “The Surely Effect”!

As he prayed these verses over his life he said that he saw the cartoon character from the Charlie Brown strip named, Pigpen. Pigpen had a cloud of dirt that followed him wherever he went— it went before him, behind him and beside him. The Lord showed him that the “surely” promises of blessings, multiplication, mercy and loving kindness would encircle his life in the same way that the dust cloud encircled Pigpen’s life.

Once again…it is what I’m calling the “Surely Effect.” Isn’t it time to walk in His promises? To agree with, align with and decree them as a promised truth over everything you do and everything you touch?

Surely means assurance and confidence which is the same meaning as HOPE in regards to our faith. Faith is the assurance of things hoped for! It is confident expectation and assurance that what God says it true. He cannot lie!

It’s time to align with the “Surely Effect”! This will renew your faith and become a truth that surrounds you like a cloud of favor and promise.

Yesterday I did a Facebook live that talked about shaking off disappointment and going back to the trust that says, “He who promised is faithful.” (Hebrews 11:11). Far too often believers align with a false “surely” that tells a lie about our God. It says that surely you will be disappointed, surely you will lack, surely you will fail…and so on! But that is a lie that needs to be trampled like a snake under our feet. The truth is that for every believer, “Surely goodness and loving kindness, blessings and multiplication…and no lack” will follow you.

Today— receive the Surely Effect into your life!

THIS IS OUR 20/20 CLEAR VISION MOMENT!

By Kathi Pelton

As I have been spending time with the Lord this morning I was shown a vision of this “quarantine time” but in it I was in an optometrist office receiving an eye exam and being fitted for lenses that would bring my vision back to 20/20.

Many prophetic voices prophesied words about 20/20 vision coming in 2020. I recently came across a post from a man who was mocking those words and saying that this pandemic has proven the prophetic voices wrong. Well, I don’t know about you but for me personally this has been a time of seeing the state of my body, soul and spirit with greater clarity then ever before! The Spirit has been searching my life and my heart and giving me 20/20 vision to see what was formerly blurred by all the busyness and clutter in my soul.

I have never seen the finished work of the cross as clearly as I do right now. The power of His blood is bringing forth a personal reformation that is washing away everything that has usurped the true source of life and liberty. Much of what I saw were “good things” but not what I needed— for they were blocking my view of Him. It was like looking upon the wardrobe of someone you love but not truly seeing the person or the owner of the garments. My life was like a closet, stuffed full of His garments and yet little room for Him!

For me, it’s been like a fog has lifted (a veil has torn) and I can see again. Now I can partner with Him and yield to the work of His Spirit within me to bring me into greater “oneness with Christ.” Isn’t that the last thing that Jesus prayed before going to the cross?

“I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.” John‬ ‭17:21‬ ‭

How can we be one with one another if we are not first and foremost “one with God?” How will the world know if we are not—“in Him?” The verse above says, “…And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.”

We have read these words thousands of times; prayed them, preached them and prophesied them! But until this time I do not know if we could “see” the way into oneness because we have been so divided in our own hearts and lives by the “things of Him” rather than Him alone. This “Selah” has stopped the speed of life that was blurring the very things we claim to hold dear.

If you are driving in a speeding vehicle everything that you pass by is blurred due to the speed you are moving at. But if you stop the vehicle and get out you can view your surroundings with clear focus and finally see the little details you missed at high speed. Often those details will include “the little foxes that spoil the vineyard.”

“Catch all the foxes, those little foxes, before they ruin the vineyard of love, for the grapevines are blossoming!” Song of Songs‬ ‭2:15‬

We are in a spiritual “early Spring.” The grapevines of our love are blossoming and this pause or Selah has stopped us so that we see clearly and can “catch the little foxes” that seek to ruin the vineyard. If you run after a fox it will run away and most likely outrun you; but if you stop and are very still you can trap that fox and remove it from the vineyard of your life.

It is also very difficult to nurture love on the run! You must stop and get face to face and heart to heart with the one you love. The seeds of love grow underground in the hidden place where “soil and seed” are joined. It takes stillness, time, patience and watering to yield the fruit within. The same is true with our relationship with God and with people. I love the convergences of ministries but I long for the oneness of hearts even more. But first I must nurture my love with Christ.

I believe that the “20/20 vision in 2020” prophetic words may be the most accurate words ever prophesied into a new year. Did we expect it to come in this way— NO! But isn’t that usually the case with the prophetic? We hear what He plans to do but we rarely know how He will do it. His ways are not our ways nor His thoughts our thoughts! And honestly, if we knew beforehand the details of “how” we’d probably try to orchestrate and control it and mess it up. What a wise Father we have!

One of the words the Lord spoke to me regarding 2020 was the word, “Jubilee.” A Jubilee Year is a time when all debts are forgiven. In the midst of what appears to be an unprecedented global economic crisis this word, “Jubilee” surely seems to be a major miss! Or is it?

For me personally, I feel like my soul is receiving an emotional and spiritual jubilee! The deeper revelation of the finished work of the cross that paid every debt is bringing me into a jubilee season like never before. I knew this truth before but it is becoming a deeper experiential reality that is not only catching the little foxes but it is causing me to become “one with Him.” I pray that this Jubilee will touch our economy as well but I am so overjoyed that it is first touching my soul and your soul.

So. YES— 2020 is a year of 20/20 vision. You must get still and allow our Great Optometrist, Jesus Christ, to examine you and give you new lenses. It’s time to see!

Pray For President Trump! A Dream and a Warning

By Kathi Pelton

Yesterday I was sent an email that shared a dream that someone had which had me in it. She did not know what it meant but felt that she was to share it with me. As I read it I received insight regarding what the Lord was saying through this dream. I believe it clearly points to a demonic plot against our president that can be likened to Absalom’s plot to kill King David (and all those with him) in 2 Samuel 17.

“I will strike while he is weary and exhausted, and terrify him; and all the people with him will flee [in terror]. Then I will attack the king alone,” 2 Samuel‬ ‭17:2‬ ‭

The dream begins on the outskirts of an alligator infested swamp where I am with the person who had the dream and other intercessors. We see the oldest, largest and most hidden alligator that lives in this swamp and grass was growing on the back of this great beast. The grass was there to camouflage and hide him from being seen. People were walking upon this grass completely unaware of what was right under their feet.

I believe that the swamp represents the United States of America. Our president is known for saying, “Drain the swamp!” But, the enemy knows that if we drain the swamp we will expose this Leviathan.

After the “swamp scene” the dream changes. In the next part of the dream I am instructing the intercessors to go to Colorado Springs. We go there and I go into a room with a bed in it and lay face down on it in order to receive a “word from the Lord.” Suddenly the Spirit of the Lord falls on me causing me to shake so severely that I fall off of the bed and onto the floor; shaking under His power. As I read this part I felt that it could represent the importance of the word that I will receive; which could be the interpretation to this dream.

I find it interesting that I send this group to Colorado Springs since this is where Lou Engel is now living and leading our nation into prayer and fasting from his home there. I also found out that Vice President Pence arrived in Colorado Springs the same day I received the dream (April 18th) which I believe speaks to the NOW timing upon this dream. Our Vice President is the head of the Coronavirus task force therefore God may be asking for prayer for him and his leadership in this role.

The last part of this dream is that the person (who had this dream) was with me in the room when the Spirit fell on me. She was holding her “revelation journals” and all she remembers is that she wanted giving me a scripture out of 2 Samuel. That concluded the dream.

The person who had this dream could not remember the chapter or verse reference from 2 Samuel. Yet when I read the dream I felt led to ask her the date that she had the dream and she told me the early morning hours of the 17th. I felt the Spirit say, “Go to 2 Samuel 17 and you will know what is happening.” So, I first went to the early verses in 2 Samuel 17. That is when I read these words that captured my attention,

“I will strike while he is weary and exhausted, and terrify him; and all the people with him will flee [in terror]. Then I will attack the king alone,” 2 Samuel‬ ‭17:2‬ ‭

Please read thorough 2 Samuel 17 regarding the plans of Absalom to take King David’s life. I feel convinced that the enemy has a plot to destroy our president and cause those standing him to run from him in terror (leaving him exposed).

Let’s pray that our president will listen to the voices of the prophets in his life and follow their instructions. A spirit of rebellion is plotting against him in a time where he is weary and exhausted. It’s an Absalom spirit that wants to take the place of “king” and rally the people under his leadership. Through the words of the prophet a strategy is made to save the King David. Because of this strategy King David and those with him are rerouted and saved causing Absalom’s plans to thwarted. He then hangs himself.

There is a victory if we pray and bring wisdom and warning to our president. Let us get on our faces and pray!

When God Stops Establishing Your Steps He Begins Establishing Your Knees- Then Everything Changes!

By Kathi Pelton

This morning Lana Vawser posted a word about a vision where she saw God’s people “throwing their 2020 calendars into the fire.” As I read these words I began to ponder why, for the first time in thirty years, I did not buy a wall calendar or daily planner for 2020? Was it because we were moving in January and I was just too busy? But, no…I always pick it out in December and my sweet husband gets it for me for Christmas. But I just didn’t feel to as we entered 2020. I felt like there was no way to plan what the Lord would do.

Proverbs 16:9 says, “The heart of man plans his ways, but the Lord establishes his steps.”

This verse has always filled me with such confidence in going forward into the future. It has filled me with hope and joy to know that even if I get “my plans” wrong that He will order and establish my steps as I live in a posture of surrender and of yielding to His will.

But suddenly even our steps are stopped! Plans are cancelled and a divine “moment in time” has been established. I asked the Lord, “What are Your steps for me in this time.” I was answered by a vision of my shoes coming off and my feet leaving the ground as my “knees were being established.” With that vision my heart bowed down in worship, in silent meditation, in prayer and in knowing that HE IS GOD. My knees have become my established posture and single step for 2020.

So many prophesied that 2020 would be a year of divine focus and clear vision and there has never been a more accurate word! As the planners have been set aside, the events stopped and the calendars reveal only blank boxes, suddenly the Bride has gone in to the chambers with her Bridegroom to rediscover first love. And it is within these closed doors of intimacy that He is sharing His mysteries with her; even His strategies and His plans. But first, He is awakening love!

Yesterday morning I looked at my husband and said, “What is that fragrance that you are wearing?” He looked at me a bit baffled and replied, “Deodorant. The same one I wear everyday.” But I was all the way across the room and a fragrance that was so refreshing, clean and awakening filled my senses. I lingered in it and knew that I must be smelling the fragrance of “love awakening.” There is a fragrance of “oneness” that is awakening His bride.

The doorway into His chambers are often found in that place where our shoes are removed and our feet cease to move– it’s the place where we enter in upon our knees. I saw “knees established” so that future steps will be aligned. There is no going back and we do not want to; this is a time to move forward from a personal awakening and reformation that sparks a global awakening and reformation. For me, it’s a time to lay it all down and yield. Yield to “oneness with Christ” which only happens in His chambers. Oneness doesn’t happen in crowds or in events, it happens in the chambers of our hearts and behind closed doors.

A new wine skin is being established that will hold the new wine that will be poured out. If God had poured out the new wine into the old wine skin it surely would have burst and been wasted. Be ever so careful to not hold onto the old ways, the former plans and as Lana spoke, “…to want to get back to what we were doing before this Selah.” We must receive the invitation into His chambers where we yield to Him in a oneness that comes only through intimacy and communion together. Oneness will hold the new wine. It is the true answer to Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21-23, “That they would be one even as we are one…”

Remove your shoes and allow your steps to cease and your knees to be established. There is a great awakening but it is happening first in the chambers of intimacy. It is there that He will establish oneness (He will set it as a seal upon your heart) and then He will share the mysteries and the secrets of His heart.

My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise my darling, my beautiful one, come away with me.” Song of Solomon 2:10

Let your steps take you to your knees where you will arise and go with Him to the place that love is awakened and oneness is sealed.

The Power Is About To Come Back On!

By Kathi Pelton

For days now, all I can say are these words, “We are being taken back to the blood of Jesus and the finished work of the cross!”

Nothing more!

That sums up the “prophetic word for this hour” that we are in! Jesus Christ and Him crucified for the sins of the world.

Repentance is falling upon the church and it is setting us free! Why? Because it is immediately met by the blood that cleanses us and the broken body that heals us. This is the message that we must carry into the days ahead. We will see that there is POWER IN THE BLOOD—wonder working power.

We have come up with so many formulated prayers; curse breaking prayers, blood line prayers, healing prayers, deliverance prayers and “repeat after me” prayers but I believe we are going to see much of those types of prayers fall away because when the power is about to come on and it will flow from the message of the blood of Jesus and the finished work of the cross only. Manifest power will flow like never before! This simple and true message can be carried and spoken by all His people.

As we are shut in, we are like the disciples in the upper room after Jesus ascended. We are waiting for “power from on high to fill us.” The Spirit of God lives in us already but I had a vision the other day of Jesus knocking on the door of our hearts and when we opened the door our hearts were so crowded with other “spiritual things” that there was no room for Him to come in and dine with us. Then a spiritual spring cleaning occurred and it removed all that was crowding our hearts till it looked like a clean and empty room. Then Jesus set up a table in the middle of this room and put the communion elements (the bread and wine) on the table. He declared, “It is finished.” Then He sat down at the table and invited us to come and partake of His body and His blood. As we did “power from on high returned and the glory filled His temple once again.

Then I heard this verse,

I am the LORD; that is My name! I will not yield My glory to another or My praise to idols. Isaiah 42:8

The clutter (yes, even spiritual clutter) in our hearts has demanded attention, affection, and precious time. Often we have become more fascinated by our spiritual discoveries more than the Lamb that was slain. But as we are coming up to the time of Passover, Good Friday and Easter I believe we will see the true gospel set us free from the captivity of things that have vied for our time and attention more than Jesus alone! In Him are all things and all things belong to Him. His glory comes and fills the temple as we return to the Love that came into a fallen world to live a spotless life and then take upon Himself the sin of all mankind. With every lash, every thorn, every scorn and every nail; the power of sin and death were broken. The with the words, “It is finished!” He made a way for mankind to have everlasting and abundant life. All power to save, heal, deliver and set free is in the death and resurrection of our precious Jesus.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

Our upper room waiting is happening now as the Spirit goes through our hearts and cleanses us of the clutter (even spiritual things) that have become idols. Power will come as the body and blood of Jesus are restored as the source of all.

444: Why Is This So Significant As We Approach Passover?

By Kathi Pelton

I began hearing the Spirit speak to me regarding calling a corporate daily communion from 4/4/2020
-4/8/2020 (Passover). Though I was sure that I’d heard this I wasn’t sure why until I woke up this morning. That’s when the “why?” began to be revealed.

How My Day Began:

I woke up this morning at exactly 4:44 a.m. and heard the Spirit speak the words from Ezekiel 44:4,

“Also He brought me by way of the north gate to the front of the temple; so I looked, and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD; and I fell on my face.”
‭‭
Then, as I began to pray, I once again saw the date before my eyes, 4/4/2020. Then saw four days of a corporate communion prior to Passover beginning on 4/4. Once again, I didn’t know why or what the significance of the date 4/4 was. The fifth day, Passover (on 4/8) would also be a day of partaking in communion and anointing the doorposts of your home in remembrance of His deliverance from captivity.

As I began to pray further into what I was seeing and hearing I was led to look up the date (4/4) this year to see if it means anything significant to the Jewish people.

Sure enough it does!

It is the last Sabbath prior to Passover and it is called, “Shabbat HaGadol” (“Great Shabbat” שבת הגדול). It is the Shabbat immediately before Passover. The first Shabbat HaGadol took place in Egypt on 10 Nisan five days before the Israelite Exodus. On that day, the Israelites were given their first commandment which applied only to that Shabbat, “On the tenth day of this month (Nisan)… each man should take a lamb for the household, a lamb for each home (Exodus 12:3).” This lamb is the lamb that would be sacrificed four days later and its blood placed on the doorposts of every Jewish home.

This explained the four days that lead up to Passover but I felt that there was something more; something specific that was on the Lord’s heart. Knowing that we are in a time like no other time before, where the whole earth is closed in, I could feel the depth of purpose behind this time of communion—but what was it? As I prayed more and researched more I finally found the piece that I had been looking for!

During the time when the Israelites were living in captivity in Egypt “the lamb” was considered a god (it was an Egyptian idol). After 400 years of living in the Egyptian culture many of the Jewish people had begun to accept Egyptian idols as a part of their belief system; they had abandoned the purity of Yahweh being their one and only God. But in His mercy He was breaking idolatry by asking His chosen people to take an unblemished lamb (this Egyptian “idol”) and set it aside to be sacrificed and it’s blood sprinkled on the doorway of every Hebrew homes. This act, which was going to be used to save the firstborn of every Jewish household, was also setting them free from the idolatry that had crept into their lives. They too, would be locked behind the doors of their homes and instructed to not go out until the “death passed by.”

This commandment to pick an unblemished lamb happened on the Sabbath prior to when the death angel would pass by the homes of the Jewish people, sparring their firstborn sons from the plague of death. Today the Jewish people remember this day and call it Shabbat HaGadol

God has said that there is a timeframe from 4/4-4/8 to break idolatry in the church. These are places that we’ve conformed to cultural beliefs and behaviors that have replaced the pure and simple truth that is found in “The Blood of the Lamb.” I saw in my spirit many thing “added” to the purity of His blood that was shed and those things were defiling His temple; which is us.

This is an essential time to come as God’s chosen people and set apart time each of these four days to partake in communion with your entire household. Each day we will acknowledge the spotless and pure Lamb of God who, by the shedding of His blood and breaking of His body, paid the price for the sin of the world. We will partake of the pure and simple truth of our salvation and deliverance from sin.

It is the blood of Jesus that speaks a better word and has the power to save us from this plague called Covid-19. It is time to see the glory of God fill the temple (Ez. 44:4) as we fall on our faces in humility and repentance. These days of communion will prepare our hearts to be sparred from death and delivered from every form of idolatry that has crept into the church. As we are locked in our houses, just like the Jews were during that first Passover, we will once again be saved and delivered from our captivity.

It’s time to see the power of the blood of Jesus come back upon the church. It’s time to believe the old hymn we use to sing,

“Would you be free from the burden of sin?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood
Would you o’er evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful power in the blood
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb
Would you be free from your passion and pride
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood
Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide
There’s wonderful power in the blood
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood (in the blood) of the Lamb (of the Lamb)
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb.”

The blood of Jesus is the only thing that will save us from this pandemic. It will deliver His people from idolatry and it will cause this curse to pass us by.

Will you join us as we partake in communion for four days (4/4-4/8)? There is power in the blood and a return to the cross of Christ.
