Set a Guard by Beth Auman

Do you have loose lips? Has someone spoken evil against you? Is the first thing that you speak when faced with difficulty positive or negative? Does it bring God Glory or make Jesus cry? Do you desire to win or loose?

There Is Victory in Jesus! But, we can only walk in that Victory if we do it His way.

Each of these questions is answered in Psalm 141:3-4

Set a guard, Adonai over my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips. Don’t let my heart turn to anything evil or allow me to act wickedly with men who are evildoers; keep me from eating their delicacies.

Delicacies in this verse are the delicacies of loose lips, lips that lie and spread gossip.

LORD  -I refuse to receive this loose lipped gossip. I will not go down that path. Oh LORD,  Please keep watch at the door of my lips. I choose to use my lips to glorify YOU. I Trust You Adonai in Jesus Name to turn this situation meant for my harm for my good for Your Glory. Amen

Genesis 50:20 (NIV) 20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

Psalm 141 is a really good self evaluation tool. The Bible says in Proverbs 18:21  (NKJV)21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

We all want to eat the ripest and yummiest fruit. Not the rotten fruit. Therefore, watch what you say. Speak God’s Word over yourself, your family and every situation that you find yourself in. Ask the Lord to set a guard over your mouth and keep watch at the door of your lips. Ask Him not to allow your heart to turn to anything evil, therefore preventing you from acting wickedly with men who are evil doers. Ask the LORD to keep you from eating of their delicacies. In Jesus Name.

GOD IS FAITHFUL and JESUS IS LORD. Trust in Him at all times.

Blessings and Shalom.

Love you all beyond measure.

BE ENCOURAGED – JESUS IS LORD

Let the Light of the World Shine upon you today.

A Glorified Zion

60 “Arise, shine; for your light has come,
And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
“For behold, darkness will cover the earth
And deep darkness the peoples;
But the Lord will rise upon you
And His glory will appear upon you.
“Nations will come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.

“Lift up your eyes round about and see;
They all gather together, they come to you.
Your sons will come from afar,
And your daughters will be [a]carried in the arms.
“Then you will see and be radiant,
And your heart will [b]thrill and rejoice;
Because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you,
The wealth of the nations will come to you.

Now Faith by Beth Auman

Now Faith is required to bring our hopes into reality. Our Now Faith becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. Jesus Christ is our Foundation, our Chief Corner Stone. We literally stand in HIM. Think about that for one moment. When we stand in faith, in our NOW FAITH – we stand before God in Jesus our Chief Corner Stone. All that He is – we stand in. That is what Now Faith IS. The knowing that we stand in Jesus and can come before God Almightly bringing back to Him the hopes and longings that He has placed within us from the foundation (Jesus – The Chief Corner Stone) of all creation.

Matthew 21:42 (NASB) 42 Jesus *said to them, “Did you never read in the Scriptures,The stone which the builders rejected, This became the chief corner stone; This came about from the Lord, And it is marvelous in our eyes’?

It is time NOW for each of us to realize that these longings, our hopes came from God. They line up completely with His Word – Jesus Christ our Chief Corner Stone.

They come from no other place, if we are in Christ. There are things in our future that God has designated for us to recieve, be and do. For His Kingdom. Our Now Faith is the evidence required to prove what is still unseen.

Hebrews 11:5-6  (NASB) By faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death; and he was not found because God took him up; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God. And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

See, God has preordained the boundary of our habitation. He knows our address. He created each of us with purpose. For His Kingdom purpose. It is our choice to seek and find Him. It is our choice to walk in the Now Faith that He has for us to walk in to see what is unseen.

I want all that God has for me, don’t you? We must each choose to seek after Him and walk on the well lit path that He has laid out for us. Dont’ you long for and desire to acquire all that God place within you to hope for. We must have faith that if God showed us something, if there is something within our heart that He has given us a glimpse of that we will see it here in the natural.

We must stand as  watchman on the wall in Jesus our Chief Cornerstone watching to see what He will say. When He speaks – we must see it, declare and decree it and He will perform His Word.

It begins with Now Faith. Now Faith that He will be and do all that His Word has said. There is no room for doubt. That is what NOW FAITH is.

Acts 17:24-28 (NASB) 24 The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; 25 nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; 26 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for in Him we live and move and [a]exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’

There is a fresh impartation of Now Faith available for you today. It is your choice to receive Jesus as Your LORD or not. It is also your choice to walk in His Now Faith or not.

Make your declaration to Him today – LORD, I Choose to walk in Your Now Faith today. I want this impartation. Lord bring by hopes into reality as I stand on Your firm Foundation – Jesus Christ my LORD. May I acquire the evidence required by You to prove what is still unseen. I lift up my hands and worship You. As my hands are lifted, I receive what You have for me pull it into the now and keep moving forward with Now Faith In Jesus Name Amen and Amen

 

I release the Blessing and Shalom of the LORD over each of you today in Jesus Name

Love Beyond Measure,

Sivan  5779 – Overcoming Fruit From the Tree of Life

Sivan  5779 – Overcoming Fruit From the Tree of Life

By Beth Auman and JoBeth Kested

Sivan is third in the twelve months of the Hebraic calendar with 30 days in the month beginning the evening before June 4th through July 3rd.

Sivan includes the second of three major feasts each year for the Jewish people. This Feast of Pentecost/Shavuot includes three celebrations of God’s provision: 1) The wheat harvest which demonstrates God’s physical provision; 2) The Torah which is the provision of revelation given to His people on Mount Sinai at the same time of Pentecost; 3) and the provision of the Holy Spirit demonstrating the power of God upon the followers of Jesus in the second chapter of Acts.

What is our ripe fruit that the Lord has prepared for us to eat from the Tree of Life this month?

Clue – Provision and to know Him as Jehovah Jireh, our provider.

“So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide (Jehovah Jireh). And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”” Genesis 22:14 (NIV)

The Tribe of Zebulun is associated with the month of Sivan and were esteemed for their abilities in business, in the marketplace. Sivan is often referred to “the business person’s month”. Sivan is a month of transaction, making it a month that Adonai does business with us and also a month for us to do “business” with God. It’s time to discern the Lord’s provision for us in our business, in revelation knowledge of His ways and to experience the increased empowering of the Holy Spirit in all things concerning our lives in the Overcoming Journey of our walk in the Lord.

How do we do “business” with God?

Clue – Connecting our talk with our walk.

“For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, Blessed is the man who trusts in You!” Psalms 84:11-12

What does it mean to walk before the LORD uprightly and what does this have to do with the month of Sivan? In our “Journey of the Overcomers” and partaking the fruits from the Tree of Life each month, we are learning the character and ways of God each step of the way. For the last 50 days we have learned the significance of counting the Omer from Passover to Pentecost; bringing our lives before the LORD – receiving forgiveness, deliverance and healing; submitting our lives in greater ways to Him and celebrating the more we are able to receive the fulfillment of His plans for us.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the LORD, ”Jeremiah 29:11-14a

How are we to seek and find the Lord?

Clue – By the Word of God and by His Holy Spirit.

In this month of Sivan, celebrating the Feast of Pentecost/Shavuot, we are reminded how God gave his people the Torah in the Old Testament and bestowed the Holy Spirit in the New Testament upon the followers of Yeshua Hamashia – Jesus the Messiah. The Word came to life and was made flesh through Our LORD Jesus Christ and on the day of Pentecost, after the disciples had counted the Omer in the upper room, the Holy Spirit was given by Adonai and every single person was given the choice to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and be filled with His Holy Spirit. When we choose to be among the followers of Jesus, Who declared that He is The Way, The Truth and The Life; and receive the power of the Holy Spirit, we are restored in rightful relationship with our Father God. As we continue seeking God in His Word, the Holy Spirit broadens our understanding of His ways and sheds the light of truth onto our path.

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6

The Constellation aligned with Sivan is Gemini – the twins. The two tablets of the Law was given twice to Moses because the first tablets were utterly destroyed when the disobedient Israelites chose to create a golden calf and participate in idol worship.

Also, Jesus first came to this earth as the Son of Man born to fulfill all the laws of Torah, died and was resurrected as King of kings and Lord of Lords that we might be born again into new life with Him. He returned to heaven and He will return a second time to this earth, to establish His new Kingdom on a New Earth where we will rule and reign with Him!

 “Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”” Revelation 1:7-8

Have you ever repeated a time in your life that you would have preferred not repeating? Does it seem as if you are walking around the same mountain all over again? Do you want to stop this cycle of events and move forward? Do you want His best for your life?

Clue – Understanding Time

“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away; A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NKJV

His times and seasons reflect how we are to walk before Him uprightly. How do we do that?

Clue – New Boundaries

Sivan is the month where God chooses our New Boundaries. Everything in the universe, within every unique galaxy, operates within His well designed boundaries. In Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, we are given a glimpse into how to walk uprightly before God, within the guidelines of His times and seasons. He designed Time to define Seasons that establishes boundaries, bringing security and order for us to walk and live our lives. When we submit to God, and resist the devil, he will flee from us (James 4:7). As you submit to Him He will show you His plan and He will enlarge your boundaries.

A few additional characteristics of Sivan: 1) This is a month for alignment, especially in relationships as described in the book of Exodus when God dealt with Miriam and Aaron, the brother and sister of Moses when they refused to acknowledge his leadership chosen by God. 2) The Color/Stone for Sivan is Clear Quartz or White Moonstone. May we all see God’s path to before us clearly and to walk in the radiant glory of His presence more nearly. 3) This is also a month of giving so give generously back to God and ask Him to establish you within your New Boundary.

Another characteristic of the month of Sivan is to be merciful and is represented by the letter Zayin from the Hebrew alphabet, meaning the ability to receive mercy for completion. It is important for each of to receive all God mercifully provides for us in this month and to complete all He has assigned to us with our New Boundaries.

Zayin

“Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope. My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life. The arrogant mock me unmercifully, but I do not turn from your law. I remember, Lord, your ancient laws, and I find comfort in them. Indignation grips me because of the wicked, who have forsaken your law. Your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge. In the night, Lord, I remember your name, that I may keep your law. This has been my practice: I obey your precepts.” Psalm 119:49-56 (NIV)

A note from Beth:

Our gifts make room for us. New Boundaries must be received and secured. Our new boundary requires a step of faith. They require our declaration of agreement with God’s Word over us and we must add our faith to our declarations in order move forward.

Recently, I was asked to do something that was out of my comfort zone. I had many personal things going on and yet, I knew that it was truly God doing the asking.

One of my dearest friends asked me to speak for him so that he could go out of town. I knew that I was to do this. As soon as I said, “Yes, I would love to do that,” I was charged with this great impartation. I knew what to say and sensed the Breaker Anointing come upon me. It was time to break into a New Boundary. Not just for me, but for a specific assignment with a group of people and anyone who would take the time to hear what the Spirit of the Lord was saying.

God opened up a time and space for me to share what was on His heart. I submitted myself fully, for His will to be done; for His glory alone. It was not difficult. In fact it was simple and joyful! My prayer was that He would extend His message to whomever needed to hear His voice through mine. I will prophecy or declare or teach or minister the laying on of hands, whatever He calls me to do for His glory.

As I submit and lean more and more into The LORD, I hear His voice and flow in the Holy Spirit. We must be a people who allow the LORD to stretch us and establish us within His New Boundaries; to love what He LOVES and speak with His Wisdom in His Way, if we want His best for our lives. Who would want to settle for Plan B? I choose Plan A – His Best for me. How about you?

Sivan is the Month to make this choice: life or death, blessing or curse.

Whatever you choose this month, you will walk out until the next Sivan. Mark this on your calendar and take notes throughout the year. You will see quantifiable results that this is THE TRUTH. We choose life and blessing!

Please ask Adonai to reveal His New Boundary for your life. Receive it and learn to operate within it. Follow Him and walk in His life filled blessing because He will not withhold any good thing from you if you choose to walk uprightly before Him. We Trust YOU Adonai!

Lord, we come before You in Jesus Name. We understand that seeking You daily is the Key to our Quest in the Journey of the Overcomers. We are to count our days, number our days and walk uprightly before You daily. Submitting to You daily. Asking You for our Bread daily. Asking for the infilling power of the Holy Spirit daily. Continuing to walk step by step on Your well lit path that You have created for us daily. Our destiny is to fulfill Your purpose for our lives individually while working together corporately. Lord we yield and embrace all your abundant provisions for us in this month of Sivan. We receive Your New Boundary for our lives. Teach us how to operate within new spheres of knowing You and walking in ALL Your ways, in Jesus Name. Amen.

““The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’” Acts 17:24-28a (NIV)

Partake of the Overcoming Fruit from the Tree of Life – Monthly – Overcome – Breakthrough

 

 

 

Can You Hear Him Whisper in the Night – by Beth Auman

This verse touched me so deeply. Have you ever cried out to Adonai – What’s next LORD, please show me the way to go.

Adonai knows our hearts. He knows what is coming next and He whispers to us in the night and He gives us wisdom, showing us what to do next.

I praise Him with all that I am today because He is leading and guiding me on His well lit path. I’m listening and so excited to hear Him whisper to me in the night. I’m listening LORD.

Open your heart and your ears to hear Him tonight. Then do whatever He says, go where He leads you to go and Praise Him because He is worthy.

Blessings and Shalom in Jesus Name.

The Month of Iyar 5779 – Overcoming Fruit From the Tree of Life

The Month of Iyar 5779 – Overcoming Fruit From the Tree of Life

By Beth Auman and JoBeth Kested

 The Hebraic month of Iyar began the evening before May 6 through 29 days to June 3rd. Iyar is still considered the second month on the Jewish calendar, following Adar 1 even with the addition of Adar 2 in this Hebraic calendar leap year. The Torah refers to Iyar, which is the eighth month from Tishrei, as the second month because the Torah counts months from Nissan, when Israel left Egypt. It’s helpful to understand that when the Torah refers to the “second month, it’s talking about Iyar.

The tribe of Israel associated with this month is the Tribe of Issachar. In I Chronicles 12:32 it says, “the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do.” The implication is wisdom with understanding from discerning the character and ways of God with anointing of the Holy Spirit for guidance. This is often referred to as the “Issachar Anointing” with the ability to “know” the secret things of the Lord.

There are several additional significant keys for insight into the month of Iyar which reveal additional aspects of the Issachar Anointing.

  • The letter of the Hebrew alphabet assigned to Iyar is the VAV which means connection and linking.
  • The constellation of Taurus is aligned with Iyar; representing power and strength.
  • The color of royal lapis blue is also associated with Iyar representing the heavenly realms and the glory of the Lord.
  • The name used in the Torah for this month is Ziv; meaning a glowing light; which signifies increased revelation, and implies our need to “see” and experience the glory of the Lord.

Clue — Counting the Omer.

The month of Iyar is also the only month of the entire year that we count the Omer each day of the entire month and is a key to becoming those that know and discern the times.

“‘And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering: seven Sabbaths shall be completed. Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath;”Leviticus 23:15-16

 Jesus told His disciples, “but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”” Luke 24:49

 This is where He instructed them to count the Omer during the 50 days up to the Feast of Shavuot. They all knew and had done this their entire lives and and were obedient. Jesus knew that the feast of Shavuot – Pentecost was going to occur at that time. At the Feast of Shavuot – Pentecost, the Holy Spirit was given. (Acts 2) Through  obedience to Jesus our Lord, we can receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit on a daily basis and spend time with Adonai every day. This concept is actually where developing the discipline for Daily Devotionals came from. What seems like an old tradition is truly a key to the Issachar Anointing.

This month of Iyar is a month of transition and all of us know that transition is a difficult, confusing and uncomfortable time between where we’ve been, on the way to where we are going; and often times without clearly knowing exactly where that is! An excellent picture for more understanding of transition is when something is poured out from one container to another. There are those moments when everything is in a free fall with no boundaries, guidance or protection until safely settled into the new place. That gives us a pretty accurate picture of why we often become emotionally unfettered in the midst of transitions!

Now we can ask, “What is the Ripe Fruit from the Tree of Life in the month of Iyar?”

Clue — Iyar is especially associated with recovery and healing. “Ani Hashem Rofecha”—“I am the Lord that heals you.”

Our scriptural reference is the story of the children of Israel in transition from Egypt to the Promise Land. They have escaped 400 years of captivity after experiencing the numerous miracles of Passover and deliverance through the parted waters of the Red Sea. They have wandered three days past the Red Sea into the wilderness without water only to arrive at the bitter waters of Marah.

“And the people complained against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” So he cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. There He made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there He tested them, and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you. Exodus 15:24-26

Expectation — To experience the Glory of the Lord of the God who heals!

Almost all of us may find ourselves in a place of transition. Maybe we’re glad to be out of the place where we were, but now stuck in some wilderness in desperate need of the Lord’s intervention to heal our minds, bodies, finances, relationships or circumstances. Even if we are not in transition, we’ll all agree that an Issachar Anointing of wise discernment would be a great help for us to know what we should do in difficult times.

So, how do we learn the secrets of the Lord?

Clue — Wisdom with understanding!

 “Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7

“He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.” Daniel 2:21b-22

 “To know wisdom and instruction, To perceive the words of understanding, A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,” Proverbs 1:2, 5

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” James 1:5

Wisdom and understanding go together. Wisdom without understanding is not complete. Wisdom with understanding leads to discernment, accompanied by the dawning light of direction for the steps of action we need to take through the Wilderness of Transition!  Steps ordered by the Lord, in the power of Holy Spirit, lead us into the Glory of the Lord’s presence where He can reveal Himself to us as Jehovah Rapha—our Healer, Jehovah Jireh—our Provider, Jehovah Shalom— our Peace, Jehovah Nissi—our Refuge, El Gibbor—Champion or Mighty God Who fights for us and El Shaddai—our God that is MORE THAN ENOUGH!

From JoBeth: Many years ago I ended up in a deep pit of depression; where even Christian doctors and psychologists advised my husband that I would never be whole again. Something within me knew that if I couldn’t trust God, that He is Who He says He is and does what He says He does, then I had nothing but a shell of religion, without relationship, and no hope for myself much less anyone else. For several years the Lord directed me to his Word, especially delving into 5 Psalms and a Proverb each day, which was key to leaning the character and ways of God. It was a long journey, one step at a time. The increasing light of wisdom with understanding and discerning His path for me, grew brighter and brighter into the Glory of His presence in His redemptive, merciful, healing in His grace. He healed my broken heart, gave me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that He may be glorified. (Isaiah 61:1-3)

Counting The Omer this month, we are encouraged to actively turn our focus unto the Lord each day, learning the character and ways of the Lord, for unraveling the secret things with wisdom and understanding. Each day of Iyar leads us further in our Journey of the Overcomers, through our Wilderness of Transitions towards the “Promise Land” of fulfilling God’s ordained destiny and purposes for our lives. This is our opportunity of becoming those that know and discern the times with expectation that we will learn the Way of His Wisdom to see His light unto our path into His Heavenly glory.

Oh, Lord, Adonai, as we count the Omer during this month of Iyar, we give each day to you and asking, “What do we need to see?” At the breaking of each new day, we lift our hands, hearts and lives unto YOU. We ask You for the anointing as “sons of Issachar” that we might learn Your character to know Your ways, gaining Your wisdom with understanding, to discern the way we need to go. We receive the light of Your glorious presence for Your healing work in every area of our lives. We declare that You are Who You say You are, and You will do what you say You will do! Acknowledging that Jesus is our Lord, our Redeemer, Warrior, our Shalom and we declare that by His stripes we are healed! Thank You LORD! We receive Your healing touch this month of Iyar on our Journey of the Overcomers. Amen!

 “Arise, shine; For (our) light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon (us).” Isaiah 60:1

Trust by Beth Auman

This is our declaration and decree for such a time as this. We will watch and see Abba incline Himself to our cry, bring us out of this pit of destruction and miry clay. He will set our feet upon a rock (Jesus Christ the chief cornerstone) and make our footsetps firm. So that we can continue on His well lit path for His Glory. How Blessed are we who have made The LORD our Trust. Amen and Amen

 

Psalm 40:4  (NASB) How blessed is the man who has made the Lord his trust,
And has not [a]turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.

Passover – 5779

One Lamb for the household – Generational Salvation through the Lamb of God – Jesus

The Word tells us that Adonai instructed One Lamb for household. Adonai even said that if your household is too small for a lamb, then share with your nearest neighbor according to the number of people.

Jesus Christ is our Lord – He is the Lamb that was slain for the forgiveness of sin.

John 1:29 NASB The next day he *saw Jesus coming to him and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

Revelation 12:11 (NASB) 11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even [a]when faced with death.

Many Christians have embraced the Hebraic Roots of their faith in Jesus. Realizing that Jesus of course was and still is Hebrew Born. That Adonai has a calendar that we must learn about and that we are to observe the Feasts times that He instructed. For no other reason than because He said so and it is important to HIM.

Ephesians 2:14-16 (NASB) 14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the [a]barrier of the dividing wall, 15 [b]by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might [c]make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, 16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, [d]by it having put to death the enmity.

One New Man, thus establishing peace and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.  Jesus, made Himself our Shalom, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into ONE NEW MAN.

The Word of God does not free us in this statement from celebrating the Feasts – He combines us and our desire is to take the one Lamb per household and apply the Blood of Jesus over our Generations and our neighbors. One Lamb per household and if you are a small household – then Share.  Jesus, Himself said it this way. Mark 16:15 (NASB) 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

Adonai has a calendar and within His calendar there is a cycle of First Fruits – each new month beginning with the First month which is Nissan – and contains Passover – this is the First of the First because Adonai said so in His Word. Nothing ever erased anything in His Word. The Bible is ONE as Father Son and Holy Spirit are ONE. You cannot separate it because you want to think of an old covenant and a new one. You must embrace it and know that every Word gives revelation of Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Please read this and allow the Lord to give you Revelation from His heart.

Exodus 12:1-25 Now Adonai spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying, “This month will mark the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year for you. Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month, each man is to take a lamb for his family one lamb for the household. But if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his nearest neighbor are to take one according to the number of the people. According to each person eating, you are to make your count for the lamb. Your lamb is to be without blemish, a year old male. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats. You must watch over it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is to slaughter it at twilight. They are to take the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the crossbeam of the houses where they will eat it. They are to eat the meat that night, roasted over a fire. With matzot and bitter herbs they are to eat it. Do not eat any of it raw or boiled with water, but only roasted with fire—its head with its legs and its innards. So let nothing of it remain until the morning. Whatever remains until the morning you are to burn with fire. Also you are to eat it this way: with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet and your staff in your hand. You are to eat it in haste. It is Adonai’s Passover. “For I will go through the land of Egypt on that night and strike down every firstborn, both men and animals, and I will execute judgments against all the gods of Egypt. I am Adonai. The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. So there will be no plague among you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. “This day is to be a memorial for you. You are to keep it as a feast to Adonai. Throughout your generations you are to keep it as an eternal ordinance. For seven days you are to eat matzot, but on the first day you must remove hametz from your houses, for whoever eats hametz from the first day until the seventh day, that soul will be cut off from Israel. The first day is to be a holy assembly for you as well as the seventh day. No manner of work is to be done on those days, except what is to be eaten by every person—that alone may be prepared by you. So you are to observe the Feast of Matzot, for on this very same day have I brought your ranks out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you are to observe this day throughout your generations as an eternal ordinance. During the first month in the evening of the fourteenth day of the month, you are to eat matzot, until the evening of the twenty-first day of the month. For seven days no hametz is to be found in your houses, for whoever eats hametz, that soul will be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is an outsider or one who is born in the land. You are to eat no hametz; in all your houses you are to eat matzot.” Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Go, select lambs for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb. You are to take a bundle of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and apply it to the crossbeam and two doorposts with the blood from the basin. None of you may go out the door of his house until morning. Adonai will pass through to strike down the Egyptians, but when He sees the blood on the crossbeam and the two doorposts, Adonai will pass over that door, and will not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you down. Also you are to observe this event as an eternal ordinance, for you and your children. “When you come into the land which Adonai will give you as He has promised, you are to keep this ceremony.

As a family, we do not celebrate Passover in a Religious way. We come together and celebrate that Adonai gave one lamb per household – Jesus. He is our Salvation.  We apply the blood of the Lamb on our doorposts. Decree Salvation to our generations and have a meal together. We praise the Lord and thank Him for His plan. We ask Him to help us celebrate His Feasts His way and we learn something new each year.

This year I truly hope that you will allow the Lord to minister His Revelation to you and see that there is no bunny or egg in the Bible. Bunnies are not evil nor are eggs but they have nothing at all to do with the Life, Death, Burial or Resurrection of Jesus our LORD. You are responsible for what you teach others and that God’s Word is 100% all that we need now and forever. Take a moment and ask Him how to celebrate. He will lead you and guide you into all truth and you will have a closer relationship with Him. He Loves you and wants you to know what He Loves.

Allow the Lord through His Passover Lamb who takes away the sins of the entire world to bring Salvation to your entire household, your generation. WOW! A Lamb for a household. John 16:13 (NASB) 13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.

Revelation 12:11 (NASB) 11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even [a]when faced with death.

Make this Decree over your life: I have Passed over from death unto life by the Blood of the Lamb out of the hand of the enemy. (Dr. Robert Heidler)

Today, I apply the blood of the Lamb – Jesus the Messiah over our doorposts. I praise the Lord for the miracle deliverance of the Jewish people out of the hand of their enemy in Egypt.

I declare that I have passed over from death unto life by the blood of the Lamb out of the hand of the enemy and I ask Adonai for your Salvation. I have received The Lamb for my household and anyone who is near to me who needs to know the Lamb who was slain for the forgiveness of all sins – Please ask Him to forgive your sins today, apply the blood of the Lamb over your doorposts and receive Jesus as your Lord and Messiah and Pass Over from death unto Life. Amen and Amen

May the Shalom (Wholeness) of Jesus the Messiah be your portion always and may you Shalam (Receive) all that He has for you.

Love Beyond Measure – Jesus IS King of kings and Lord of lords

Nissan 5779 – Overcoming Fruit From the Tree of Life

By Beth Auman and JoBeth Kested

Nissan (Abib or Aviv) begins on April 6, on the night before in the Jewish custom, through May 5th and is the month known as the First of Months. Though Nissan is the beginning of months, the new civic calendar year does not begin until September, in the month of Tishrei, during the Fall Feast of Rosh Hashanah, known as the Head of the Year (Exodus 34:22; Leviticus 25:9-10).

“Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.” Exodus 12:1-2

What is the fruit from the Tree of Life that the Lord is offering to us in this month of Nissan? (Revelation 22:2a)

Clue – Praise!

The tribe of Judah is linked with the month of Nissan and means praise. Judah’s mother, Leah, declared at his birth, “This time I will praise the Lord.” (Genesis 29:35) It is significant that Judah is aligned with Nissan because Judah, the tribe of praise, was also designated by God to lead first in battle. (Judges 1:2; 20:18) And they defeated their enemies!

 “…Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.” II Chronicles 20:20b-21

The letter “Hei”, from the Hebrew alphabet, is also associated with the month of Nissan; which is a picture of wind, breath and praise.

Clue – We get the term Jew from the Hebraic word Yehudah, for Judah. 

 Because we have received our salvation from sin through the sacrifice of Jesus, the Lamb who takes away the sins of the world, we are grafted into the promises of Israel (Romans 11:17-19). Therefore, we too, are Yehudi’s! We are also those called to raise our hands to “Praise the LORD” in triumph with victory over our enemies in battle! We are Yehudi’s, therefore, this scripture definitely applies to each of us, too!

 Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, with Jehoshaphat in front of them, to go back to Jerusalem with joy, for the LORD had made them rejoice over their enemies.”

II Chronicles 20:27

There are three important Appointed Times of celebrations in the month of Nissan:

Rosh Codesh – the First Fruit Celebration marking our covenant with God and seeking Him first. This is a monthly celebration at the beginning of every month.

Feast of Unleavened Bread – Seven days of eating unleavened bread because God directed remembrance of the Israelites having to flee Egypt in haste with no time for their bread to rise. In Orthodox homes, it requires deep cleaning to remove all yeast, symbolic of sin, from their lives.

Passover – The Celebration of Moses and the Israelites moving out of the land of Egypt and deliverance from Pharaoh, their cruel task master that held them in harsh slavery. God gave instruction to apply the blood of the Lamb over the door post and the spirit of death Passed Over them. They experienced God’s deliverance from all of the plagues of Egypt and they Passed Over through the Red Sea into freedom as they saw the destruction of their enemies.

What can we Christians learn from Passover?

Clue – The Lamb Who takes away the sins of the world.

“Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!” Revelation 5:12

Let’s focus on the significance of Passover in our Journey of the Overcomers. In the Feast of Passover we find so many types and shadows of Yeshua Hamashia, Jesus the Messiah, our salvation and deliverer. The innocent sacrificial Lamb, whose blood was applied on the doorpost of each family’s home; at the head, each side of the upper lintels and feet, symbolic of Jesus nailed to the cross. The partaking of the unleavened bread and wine, symbolic of the sinless, broken body and shed blood of Jesus for the forgiveness of our sins. The cloud of death that passed over the Israelites houses with the blood of the Lamb on the door posts, whereas the firstborn in every house in Egypt died; symbolizing our deliverance from death to eternal life. Passing through the parted waters of the Red Sea to freedom from slavery; symbolizing the waters of baptism where we experience the washing away of our sins to a resurrected life in Jesus and entering freedom from the slavery of our sins. The Lord’s destruction of all their enemies in the Red Sea; which is a significant illustration for our understanding of the power of the blood of Jesus to destroy all of our enemies! Oh, what joyous praise be unto to Jesus; our Passover Lamb!

“Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the LORD, and spoke, saying: “I will sing to the LORD, for He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea! The LORD is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; my father’s God, and I will exalt Him.” Exodus 15:1-2

How are we to apply this revelation of the Celebration of Passover under the Blood Covenant of Jesus Christ?

Clue – It is not a matter of Religion – it is a matter of Relationship.

By seeking and submitting our lives unto the LORD each month and asking Him to teach us, we will discover how to partake of the Fruit of His Spirit from the Tree of Life. With His Wisdom and Understanding, He will lead each of us into His Truth. We encourage you to read Exodus and listen to it if you have an audible version. Ask the Lord Questions; trusting the Holy Spirit to give you insights and revelation as you read or hear it.

“So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance.” Exodus 12:14

An additional significant note for Messianic believers in Yeshua, is that the Constellation of Aries – the ram (lamb) is associated with the month of Nissan. It is also important for us focus on the characteristics of Redemption, Repentance and Beginning of Miracles that remind us to prepare our hearts to receive the sacrifice of the Lamb of God, prophesied and fulfilled in the Passover story.

Thoughts from Beth: To many in the modern-day church, Passover has been labeled, old covenant, irrelevant things of the past, insignificant to Christians and only a Jewish thing. We celebrate the Biblical Feasts as precious family dinners; times of connection and consecration in the special celebrations with increasing understanding and blessings that The Lord brings forth. We ask Him to increase His wisdom and understanding in our lives and to bless our relationships with each other and with Him. We don’t know it all yet, however, we are so willing to learn to Love what He LOVES because He is LOVE. Jesus our Messiah, is the fulfillment of our Passover and we want to Passover every single thing that would lead to bondage or death in our lives, so that nothing can keep us from continuing to move forward with God into all He has prepared for us.

We have discussed leaving the past behind and had 2 months of Adar to allow the LORD to bring forth all of the things in our lives that we do not want to carry into this month of new beginnings and celebrations to Passover. We are seeking God’s wisdom, knowledge and understanding by the Holy Spirit because it is His purpose to shed light onto our path on this Quest of the Overcomers. We are moving forward, Passing Over to greater freedom and victory that is ours in Jesus.

LORD (ADONAI), we submit to You and and seek Your truth. We partake of The Ripe Fruit of Praise from the Tree of Life in the new beginnings this month of Nissan. With a song of praise in our mouth and rejoicing in our hearts we give you thanks for delivering us from the darkness of sin and destruction into the light of life, in the resurrection power of the blood of Jesus, our Messiah. We Passover into liberty because we have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb out of the captivity of slavery to sin. Train us, teach us, equip us and impart Your wisdom with understanding by the Holy Spirit. May we be fruitful and multiply as we worship and praise You in this Journey of the Overcomers. In The name of Jesus, amen.

“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.  Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.” Psalms 100:4-5
