ANGEL OF DEATH PASSING OVER

arise

Just as everyone was sequestered in their homes before His remnant’s exodus from Egypt, so is today’s worldwide home stay (sheltering in place). Know that Egypt can be equated to the world. This year, Passover, is taking on a whole new ascended reality.

There are three levels to Passover: [1] Passover (Pesach) Itself – one-day festival, [2] Feast of Unleavened Bread (Chag HaMatzot) – seven-day festival, and [3] Feast of First Fruits (Bikkurim) – one-day festival falling within the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

The Feast of First Fruits is the third level. It’s of particular significance within the Lord’s Passover. It’s the Bride’s Passover. Bikkurim is all about first fruits and the power of His resurrection. Bikkurim is about bridal hearts perfectly uniting with Him. It’s about these bridal hearts being taken by God in their enraptured state, like Enoch, in order to be transformed into His very image. These will become Enoch Walkers.

Kathi Pelton has a bead on this year’s Passover when she focused on April 4, 2020 being the Sabbath immediately before Passover. It’s called Shabbat HaGadol (“Great Shabbat” שבת הגדול). The first Shabbat HaGadol took place in Egypt on the 10th of Aviv/Nisan, which was five days before the Israelite Exodus.

On that day, the Israelites were given their first commandment which only applied to the Shabbat HaGadol, “On the tenth day of this month (Aviv/Nisan)… each man should take a lamb for the household, a lamb for each home” (Exodus 12:3). This lamb is the lamb that was sacrificed four days later, and its blood smeared on the doorposts of every Jewish home.

During the time when the Israelites were living in captivity in Egypt “the lamb” was considered a god (an Egyptian idol). After living in the Egyptian culture 400 years, many of God’s chosen people had begun to accept Egyptian idols as a part of their belief system. Has today’s Church in America and the world done the same? God’s people had abandoned the purity of worshiping YHVH and Him only.

The Lord’s Passover is all about smashing the idols that rule His people, so they can be free to purely worship Him.

There’s a repeated refrain in the passage of Moses’ encounter with Pharaoh: “Let My people go, that they may serve Me” (Exodus 7:16; 8:1,20; 9:1,13; 10:3).  The Hebrew word for “serve” is the action word ‘abad. which is a primitive root made up of the Hebrew Living Letters: ayin, bet, dalet ( עָבַד ). ‘Abad  can be translated as: serve, do, till, servant, service, labor, work, or worship. In the wilderness of this world, we are meant to serve God by worshiping the Lord God and worshiping Him only. This is the primary “work” of those who truly love Him. This is the bridal heart’s labor of love.

In Egypt, the God of Mercy was breaking their stubborn and stiff-necked idolatry by asking His chosen people to take the very thing that they were worshiping and sacrifice it. Hear the word of the Lord: The one to be sacrificed is laughter (Isaac).

God asked His people to sacrifice their “idol” – a lamb. They were instructed to set this unblemished lamb aside, sacrifice it and use its blood to sprinkle the doorway of every Hebrew homes. Basically, if one was unwilling to sacrifice their idol, they didn’t have the protection of the righteous, redeeming Blood of the Lamb of God.

The blood of the unblemished lamb on the doorposts of His people’s homes was used to save the firstborn of every set-apart household from the angel of death. It also set them free from the idolatry that had slowly, but surely, crept into their lives.

Like today, God’s people were told to lock their doors and stay inside until the “death passed by.” Since Shabbat HaGadol is on April 4, 2020 and Passover begins sundown on April 8th , there’s a divine timeframe from April 4-16, 2020 to break idolatry throughout the world, so He can be crowned King of kings of kings. As we are locked in our houses, just like the Jews were during the first Passover, God’s people will be saved and delivered from our captivity.

These are idolatrous places where we have conformed to our society. We have idolatrous beliefs and behaviors that have replaced the pure and simple truth that is found in “The Blood of the Lamb.” Many things have been added to His pure blood shed on the Cross; and those things are defiling His Temple; which is you and me. It’s time to see the power of the pure and unadulterated blood of Yeshua come back to its rightful and pre-imminent place.

These are the days to prepare our hearts, so we can be spared from death and delivered from every form of idolatry that has crept in. It’s so we may worship our Heavenly Father in spirit and in truth and follow in Yeshua’s resurrection footsteps. The Great Shabbat (Sabbath) is like a spring cleaning before Passover.

In particular, I believe that the world is going to experience something unprecedented his year. The angel of death will pass over the firstfruits of His set-apart ones.

Yeshua died on Pesach, as the Lamb of God on the 14th of Aviv (Nisan). He was hidden in the ground on Chag HaMatzot on the 15th, as the broken bread without sin. They made sure to get Him in the ground before the High Sabbath or the Shabbaton of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (John 19:31). Yeshua revealed that He had to be in the ground three days and three nights (Matthew 12:40). Therefore, Yeshua died on the 14th (Pesach) and was resurrected on the 17th(Bikkurim).

On Firstfruits (Bikkurrim), Noah’s Ark came up out of the waters of death and rested safely on the mountain of God.  On Firstfruits, the Jewish nation passed through the parted Red Sea, and came up safely on the other side, even though they were pursued by their enemies. On Firstfruits, the Jews were saved from certain death in Persia when Haman was hung on his own gallows. On Firstfruits, Yeshua resurrected, conquering death forever!

The firstfruits wave offering and the Resurrection of Yeshua are linked: 20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. 23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming” (1 Corinthians 15:20-23 NKJV).

 The Apostle Paul reveals in 1 Corinthians 15 that Yeshua was like a “wave offering” presented before our Father in heaven, as the firstfruits of the harvest to come! The 144000 Bridal Company will be the firstfruits to follow in His resurrection footsteps where this mortality will take on immortality (1 Cor. 15:53; Rev. 14:4). Will they follow His Bikkurim Pattern? We will see.

Then the Wise Bridal Virgins will rise after the 144000 firstfruits, as sovereignly determined by God Himself.

No one. Everyone has to dive into bridal first-love intimacy with our Beloved Messiah Yeshua and with our Beautiful Heavenly Father to be counted among these.

We will be going into all this and more during our next School of the Firmament Class #4, which is called “Rebuilding the Tabernacle of David.” These classes are online and very interactive with plenty of Q&A time.

INTERSECTION OF THE FEAST OF FIRST FRUITS AND THE MESSIAH’S RESURRECTION

Barley Sheaf - Yom Ha Bikkirum

Today, there is a one in seven chance that that the Feast of First Fruits (i.e., Bikkurim) lands on the exact same day that Jesus Christ actually rose from he dead — the 17th of Nisan.

A friend messaged me and told me that he was still confused about the Feast of First Fruits (Bikkurim). I don’t blame him. It is not the most straight forward concept.

Scriptures that specifically speak about the celebration of the Feast of First Fruits are in Leviticus 23 and Deuteronomy 26:

“Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you enter the land which I am going to give to you and reap its harvest, then you shall bring in the sheaf of the FIRST FRUITS of your harvest to the priest. He shall wave the sheaf before the LORD for you to be accepted; ONE THE DAY AFTER THE SABBATH the priest shall wave it. … It is to be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places” (Leviticus 23:9-14 NASB).

“And it shall be, when you come into the land which the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, and you possess it and dwell in it, that you shall TAKE SOME OF THE FIRST OF ALL THE PRODUCE of the ground, which you shall bring from your land that the LORD your God is giving you, and PUT IT IN A BASKET AND GO TO THE PLACE WHERE THE LORD YOUR GOD CHOOSES TO MAKE HIS NAME ABIDE” (Deuteronomy 26:1-2 NKJV).

We know the timing of the Feast of First Fruits from Leviticus 23:11 is “on the day after the Sabbath.” We also know the Sabbath (i.e., seventh day) that the Lord is talking about is calculated from the previous section Leviticus 23:4-8. It’s the Sabbath which follow the Feast of the Lord called Passover (Pesach). This “day after the Sabbath” falls sometime during the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

What can be confusing is that the actual day that Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) raised from the dead has been documented to be the 17th of Nisan, and the year He was crucified the 17th of Nisan was also the Feast of First Fruits. To calculate Yeshua resurrection properly we need to count that Yeshua had to be in the ground 3 complete days and 3 complete nights (Matthew 12:40) as foretold in Jonah.

“Now Messiah has been raised from the dead, the First Fruit of those who sleep” (1 Corinthians 15:20).

Know that Passover is a set date that always falls on the 14th of Nisan. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is also a set time that runs from the 15th – 21st of Nisan. And the Feast of First Fruit in any given year is always the day that follows the 7th day sabbath during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. The Biblical Calendar differs quite a bit from our present-day Gregorian Calendar. By the way, many people just include the Feast of Unleavened Bread with Passover and simply say that Passover is an 8-day festival.

Since Passover (14th of Nisan) can be any day of the week (Sunday-Saturday), we have seven possibilities for how Passover, the Feast of First Fruit, and the date of the Messiah’s actual resurrection can happen in any given year. Please remember that the Feast of Unleavened Bread is a 7-day feast and the Feast of First Fruits is the day that follows the Passover Sabbath in our calculations:

[1] If the 14th of Nisan (Passover) started at sundown on Monday (like this year), the Feast of First Fruit starts at sundown the following Saturday and goes through sundown on Sunday, but the actual day that marks His resurrection is still the 17th of Nisan, which began sundown on Thursday (04-17-14) this year.

[2] If the 14th of Nisan (Passover) starts at sundown on a Tuesday, the Feast of First Fruit would start at sundown the following Saturday and goes through sundown on Sunday, but the actual day that marks His resurrection is still the 17th of Nisan, which would begin sundown on Friday that year.

[3] If the 14th of Nisan (Passover) starts at sundown on a Wednesday, the Feast of First Fruit would start at sundown the following Saturday and goes through sundown on Sunday. THIS IS THE ONLY TIME WHEN THE FEAST OF FIRST FRUITS COINCIDES WITH THE ACTUAL DAY THAT MARKS HIS RESURRECTION — THE 17TH OF NISAN.

[4] If the 14th of Nisan (Passover) starts at sundown on a Thursday, the Feast of First Fruit would start at sundown the following Saturday and goes through sundown on Sunday while the actual day that marks His resurrection would begin Sunday at sundown, which would be the 17th of Nisan that year.

[5] If the 14th of Nisan (Passover) starts at sundown on a Friday, the Feast of First Fruit would start at sundown on Saturday and goes through sundown on Sunday while the actual day that marks His resurrection would begin Monday at sundown, which is would be the 17th of Nisan that year.

[6] If the 14th of Nisan (Passover) starts at sundown on a Saturday , the Feast of First Fruit would start at sundown on the following Saturday while the actual day that marks His resurrection would begin Tuesday at sundown, which would be the 17th of Nisan that year.

[7] If the 14th of Nisan (Passover) starts at sundown on a Sunday , the Feast of First Fruit would start at sundown on the following Saturday while the actual day that marks His resurrection would begin Wednesday at sundown, which would be the 17th of Nisan that year.

So HAPPY FIRST FRUITS today!!! I hope this helps!

All love,

NOTE: We do know from Hebrew History that some major events besides the ultimate event of the resurrection of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) happened on the First Fruits (Bikkurim) too:

* On First Fruits, Noah’s Ark came up out of the waters of death and rested safely on Mount Ararat.

* On First Fruits, God’s people passed through the parted waters of the Red Sea, and safely came up on the other side.

* On First Fruits, Jews were saved from certain death in Persia, and Haman — the enemy of God and His people — was hung on His own gallows.

• On First Fruits, Yeshua was resurrected, conquering death forever!

P.S. I shared this earlier, but want to re-iterate. I love simplicity! When something appears to not be simple in Scripture, there is always a reason. I have asked Him many times why He made His Biblical calendar complicated at times, like starting a Biblical month by the new moon or a floating date for the Feast of First Fruits. What I hear every time is that He wants us to not lean on our own understanding, but to look to Him the Creator of all things, including the way that He sets the marks of time for man.
