In our invitation for you to join with us on the Journey of the Overcomers, you may have wondered why we chose to begin with Adar I rather than the month of Nissan; which is the beginning of months. (Exodus 12:1-2 NKJV) We began in Adar I so that we could focus on ending this current season well before going into the beginning of new things. In Adar I and Adar II, we have the opportunity to allow Adonai to identify any areas of bitterness and the enemy’s strategies of destruction in our lives. We are invited to partake of the sweetness of overcoming joy from the Ripe Fruit of Tree of Life (Rev. 22:2). We do not want any bitterness or patterns of destruction to follow us into the things God has for us ahead. We will want to continue moving forward in this “Journey of the Overcomers” into the new beginnings in the month of Nissan and the celebration of Passover.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 3:16-17 (NKJV)
None of us, as blood covenant believers in Jesus Christ, have to wander in any wilderness for 40 years when we all have the opportunity to move forward in the overcoming resurrection power of the LORD. Through the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Our LORD, we have the privilege to receive right relationship with God. We can receive Jesus as our LORD and Savior because the veil in the temple has been torn and there is no longer a barrier of separation between us and our Father God. Through the forgiveness of our sins by His blood, we now have access into the heavenly places through Jesus. We are free in Him to move from darkness to light, bondage to liberty and fear to hope, toward the fulfilling purposes that He has created for each of us. By His empowering, overcoming grace, in restored relationship, we can love what He LOVES, because He first loved us by sending His only begotten Son to save us. (I John 4:19 NKJV)
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” I John 4:7-8 (NKJV)
As we enter the month of Nissan in anticipation of Passover, it is now cycle breaking time! So many things have been spoken and written about the “Breaker Anointing”. We have read about it, written about it and prayed about it many times. The Bible is full of stories where people became the overcomers, that passed over, through the symbolic blood of the Lamb and the Blood of Jesus; Who is The Lord of the Breakthrough. (Micah 2:13) In Him, we pass over from death into LIFE, from sorrow to joy, from infirmity to healing (both physically and spiritually). We pass over into the Peace of Shalom; nothing missing and nothing broken because Shalom in the Prince of Peace is the ultimate goal!
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10 (NKJV)
Will you continue with us toward the breakthroughs we all hope for? Will you ask yourself, “Where in your life are you not experiencing His Shalom?” “What is missing?” “What is broken?” It is up to each of us individually to come before the Lord and ask Him where we need deliverance and break through in our lives. We each have this invitation and choice to press into knowing the Lord of the Breakthrough in this new season. Please ask The LORD to reveal anything that you need to leave behind. You do not have to carry the old baggage with you into this Overcoming season of Breakthrough. As you continue with us on this Quest of the Overcomers, we will learn more about how to break the unholy cycles in our lives, to leave things of the past behind, continuing toward the future and hope The Lord has prepared for us. We have been given this wonderful revelation about partaking of the Ripe Fruit from the Tree of Life each month for the overcoming life.
Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32 (NKJV)
We bless each of you, truly from our hearts, and want you to become all that Adonai created you to be in fulfilling your destiny. We speak Breakthrough as you break out of the old cycles and leave them behind. We declare the resurrection power of the Blood of Jesus over each of you and Speak LIFE to you, entering into the joy of this Passover season in the month of Nissan.
“Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. But the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away. Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity. But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience. Luke 8:11-16 (NKJV)
LORD, we declare and decree over every person who choses to go with us on this Quest of the Overcomer, good ground, hearers of the Word, with a noble and good heart; keeping and bearing fruit with patience. LORD, open our eyes and ears that we may see and know all we need to lay down before the feet of Jesus, The Lord of the Breakthrough. May we Passover, moving forward with You, partaking of the Ripe Fruit of the Tree of Life in Jesus Name, Amen.
