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

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.”

Recently, I began hearing the Spirit speak to me about calling a corporate daily communion from 4/4/2020 through 4/8/2020 (Passover). Though I was sure that I’d heard this I wasn’t sure why until I woke up on March 25. That’s when the “why?” came forth.

How My Day Began:

I woke up this morning at 4:44 a.m. and immediately 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 I saw four days of a corporate communion beginning on 4/4. Once again, I didn’t know why or what the significance of the date 4/4 was.

As I began to pray further into what I was seeing and hearing I was led to look up if that date (4/4) this year and 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 even regarding this time like no other that the entire earth is in. As I prayed more and researched more I found the piece that I was looking for!

During the time when the Israelites were in captivity in Egypt, “the lamb” was considered a god (idol) in Egypt and worshipped. After 400 years submerged in the Egyptian culture, many of the Jewish people had begun to accept this Egyptian idol as a part of their belief system. But Yahweh was breaking idolatry by asking His chosen people to take an unblemished lamb (this “idol”) and set it aside to be sacrificed and its blood sprinkled on the doorway of the Hebrew’s homes. This act was going to be used to save the firstborn of every Jewish household.

This picking (choosing) of the 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 many things “added” to the purity of His blood that was shed and those things were defiling His temple.

This is an essential time to come as God’s chosen people and take 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.

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 spared from death and delivered from every form of idolatry that has crept into the church.

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 used Shabbat 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.
