As I was spending time with Jesus on Thursday morning, I heard him say Jeremiah 33:3, which says, “Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come (NLT).” I had been talking to Him about the upcoming feast day called Passover.
So I asked the Lord, “Is this year’s Passover particularly significant in your plans for us?” He told me that His Passover season is significant every year but THIS YEAR was special.
What is Passover?
When Moses was 80 years old, God called him into his destiny. He was chosen as the leader to lead the nation of Israel out of slavery. They had been slaves there for over 430 years. The original passover is recorded in the book of Exodus as the last of the 10 plagues that God sent upon Egypt so the Pharaoh would let HIs people go free. (To read about this incredible testimony of God rescuing His people through the 10 plagues, see Exodus chapters 6-12.)
On the night of Passover, God told Moses to have the people put a blemish-free lamb or goat’s blood over their doorpost in order to be saved from the plague of death for every firstborn son.
On that night I will pass through the land of Egypt and strike down every firstborn son and firstborn male animal in the land of Egypt. I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt, for I am the Lord! But the blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign, marking the houses where you are staying. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. This plague of death will not touch you when I strike the land of Egypt. This is a day to remember. Each year, from generation to generation, you must celebrate it as a special festival to the Lord. This is a law for all time.Exodus 12:12-14
This event foreshadows the ultimate sacrifice that would occur thousands of years later, when God himself came down to walk in our shoes in the person of Jesus the Messiah. He gave his life as the “perfect blemish-free” LAMB of God in order to save us from death forever.
There’s Power in His Blood
The Key to both of these pivotal moments in time is the blood that was spilled to rescue another from death.
Those who apply the blood of Jesus to their lives will be SAVED.
You see, there is POWER in the blood of Jesus! I heard the Lord say, “Apply the blood to annul the problem.” The blood of Jesus is precious and it is ENOUGH to save us in every way.
Even from COVID-19.
Declare and decree the blood of Jesus over your family as protection from this plague. Read and believe Psalm 91 for your family as well. The Lord wants to remind us that His word is true and stands forever. Claim His word and stand on it.
The Lord Who Heals US
Healing was an important part of the ministry of Jesus. He demonstrated the Father’s love for mankind in tangible ways. He still heals today as we pray and also through our willingness to be His representatives! One of the most common verses about salvation in the Bible is Romans 10:9-10. It says:
“If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be SAVED. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are SAVED.” (caps mine). Romans 10:9-10 NLT
The original word in the Bible for SAVED has such a rich meaning. It conveys WAY more than being eternally destined for Heaven. It It’s the word sodezo, and it means: to save, deliver, protect, heal, preserve, do well, be made whole!
Look at what the Bible says about God healing us…
- “He said, “If you will listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in his sight, obeying his commands and keeping all his decrees, then I will not make you suffer any of the diseases I sent on the Egyptians; for I am the Lord who heals you.”” Exodus 15:26 NLT
- “He himself (Jesus) carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we would be dead to sin and live for righteousness. Our instant healing flowed from his wounding.” 1 Peter 2:24 TPT
- “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5 NKJV
- “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.” Psalm 118:17 NKJV
- Jesus told his followers, “Go and announce to them that the Kingdom of Heaven is near. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy, and cast out demons. Give as freely as you have received!” Matthew 10:7-8 NLT
In the almost five years I have been hearing the voice of God, I have personally witnessed his heart for healing people! I have seen countless people healed everywhere that I choose to step into risk and ask people if they need prayer. I’ve seen the Lord Jesus open blind eyes, deaf ears, heal backs, grow out leg length, heal the flu, reattached severed nerves in hands resulting in full function and feeling, and the list goes on. I recorded many healing testimonies in my book, The Voice of Truth.
YOU are a part of a very important generation. God has chosen you to be living NOW, amidst all the global chaos, to realize WHO you are and affect change around you. Though it looks like disaster and fear of sickness is high, as followers of Jesus… we are OVERCOMERS. We are sons and daughters of the KING of KINGS. This has advantages!! We know how the story ends. Jesus has won the VICTORY and we celebrate His resurrection this week! In following Him, we are triumphant and victorious over sin, death, and disease. Jesus’ blood has bought us SALVATION and POWER to OVERCOME!
“Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down…
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”
Revelation 12:10-11 NKJV
I heard Jesus say to us: “You are an overcomer. I chose you to be an overcomer since before the world was made. You were created to overcome! STAND IN MY VICTORY. Apply my blood sacrificed for you to this problem. There is power and life in my blood given for you as a perfect atoning sacrifice.”
He went on to say, “Because of the prayers of my saints… thousands of sick ones will be healed on Resurrection Day! This will begin a movement where many many people will begin to pray for healing for people with the Corona Virus as well as other sicknesses! My people will begin to SHINE BRIGHTER than ever before. Arise! Shine! Your light is bubbling up within you to shine! Pray! Pray for the blood of the LAMB to be applied to the virus to annul the problem, heal the sick, and heal this land. Now is the time to ARISE, my Beloveds!”
“Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.”Isaiah 60:1-3 NKJV
When the LIGHT COMES ON, darkness HAS to leave!! Let’s all come together in prayer for those with Covid-19 or any other sickness. Here is a sample prayer for healing:
Father, We thank you for your love for us and your healing power. Right now, we claim the blood of your precious son Jesus over this virus in every infected body around the globe. Your blood was spilled as a sacrifice so we could live! We apply it to this pandemic right now. In the name of Jesus, we thank you for supernatural healings to begin in sick ones everywhere. Thank you Jesus for giving your life for our healing. By the authority of Jesus, we command ___________ body to be healed of ________________. (Put in individuals names and their sicknesses!) Lord, we pray everyone will know that YOU ARE THE LORD! In Jesus’ name we pray, AMEN.
IT just so happens that TODAY and tomorrow, April 7-8, there is a Supermoon gracing the skies. This is when the moon is closest to earth in its orbit. It is going to be 7% bigger and 15% brighter than a regular full moon! I find that often the Lord in His incredible creativity and attention to detail, coincides something in the natural with something in the spiritual. Just as the moon is shining brightest today, so will the people of God begin to shine in this hour! Rise up friends! God is doing something amazing despite the difficulties. This DIVINE PAUSE (what I’ve heard some call this quarantine) is gaining freedom for the people of God. Freedom from complacency, materialism, ungratefulness, being self-focused, and has caused us to realize what the important things are in our lives… Jesus, family, relationships, helping others, love and generosity, etc!
God is bringing us out of OUR EGYPT! His ways are higher than ours and He specializes in making beauty from ashes. He is the Lord who heals us. In Exodus 13:14 God says,
And in the future, your children will ask you, ‘What does all this mean?’ Then you will tell them, ‘With the power of His mighty hand, the LORD brought us out of Egypt- the place of our slavery.”
Friends, God is bringing us out of Egypt! We are CROSSING OVER to the promised land. This Passover and Resurrection week, spend time with your family remembering what the Lord has done for us! Take communion together (Matthew 26:26-28). You are an overcomer through Jesus Christ! It’s time to ARISE and SHINE, BELOVED!
