What happens when we as Believers in Christ celebrate the Feast of Passover? In preparation for this year’s seder, I shared a message that detailed The 9 Blessings of Passover.
While there are many Christians who are hesitant to celebrate the Feasts of the Lord, I want to encourage you that these celebrations are not just Jewish festivals. They are appointed times that God created so that all of those who call on His name might be at His appointed place to receive divine appointments throughout the year.
“And you shall observe this thing as an ordinance for you and your sons forever. It will come to pass when you come to the land which the Lord will give you, just as He promised, that you shall keep this service. And it shall be, when your children say to you, ‘What do you mean by this service?’ That you shall say, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice of the Lord, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He struck the Egyptians and delivered our households.’ So the people bowed their heads and worshiped. Then the children of Israel went away and did so; just as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did.”—Exodus 12:24-28
These Feasts are literal, pictorial reminders of God’s covenant with His people. They are times of restoration and alignment. Sure, there are some who take this to the extreme—observing out of legalistic obligation…
Nevertheless, at Curt Landry Ministries we understand that this is a unique opportunity to tap into the Jewish roots of our faith, encountering God through a Hebraic set of lenses, while allowing the Holy Spirit to direct us.
That said, I wanted to share that there are also 9 unique opportunities for blessing when we place our feet beneath the Lord’s table. I didn’t make this up. It’s right there in scripture…
- PROMISE of DIVINE PROTECTION: I Decree and Declare that I will have divine protection over my family and business! “Behold, I send an Angel before you to keep you in the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared.”—Exodus 23:20
- POSITIONING and ALIGNMENT PROVIDES PROTECTION from YOUR ENEMIES: I Decree and Declare that I will be in correct alignment and at the center of the Lord’s will! “But if you in deed obey His voice and do all that I speak, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.”—Exodus 23:22
- COMMISSIONING of DIVINE AUTHORITY: I Decree and Declare that I will be commissioned this year to walk in divine authority! “You shall not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do according to their works; but you shall utterly overthrow them and completely break down their sacred pillars.”—Exodus 23:24
- SUPERNATURAL HEALTH and KINGDOM PROSPERITY: I Decree and Declare that I will walk in Godly health and Kingdom prosperity! “So you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you.”—Exodus 23:25
- COVENANT PROTECTION for MULTIPLICATION and LONGEVITY: I Decree and Declare that I am free from all satanic witchcraft, false decrees and covenants, curses, hexes, and all Baal structures that lead to the abortion of my spiritual assignments! “No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.”—Exodus 23:26
- A GODLY RELEASE of FEAR and RESPECT from YOUR ENEMIES: I Decree and Declare a release of the fear of the Lord—the beginning of wisdom within me. My enemies will have a respect for the Lord in me—they will not touch the Lord’s anointed in words, actions, or deeds! “I will send My fear before you, I will cause confusion among all the people to whom you come, and will make all your enemies turn their backs to you.”—Exodus 23:27
- THE LORD WILL DRIVE OUT YOUR ENEMIES: I Decree and Declare that the warring angels and the heavenly hosts of Zion will be released from Heaven to do spiritual warfare on my behalf! “And I will send hornets before you, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite from before you.”—Exodus 23:28
- THE LORD WILL GIVE YOU DOMINION and INCREASE YOUR INHERITANCE: I Decree and Declare the release of my ability to perceive and receive my dominion and my inheritance! “Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land.”—Exodus 23:30
- FREEDOM from CORRUPT COVENANTS: I Decree and Declare that I will be free and cleansed from all false covenants and destructive relationships! “They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For ifyou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”—Exodus 23.33
If you are not joining us in-person this year we would hope that you will make plans to join us LIVE online Monday, April 10th at 7:45pm CT at www.TheOneNewMan.com.
The Passover season is one of the most important seasons for our ministries, and we would be honored to have you worship with us!
In fact, you might wish to host a Seder at your home for your family and friends while you follow along with us via LIVE stream!
Here is what you will need:
• Matzah (unleavened bread)
• Maror—bitter herbs such as Horseradish (one teaspoon per person is ample)
• Charoset—a mixture of apple, nuts, wine & cinnamon… or chunky applesauce will do (one heaping tablespoon per person)
• Karpas—Parsley or celery will do (just enough for everyone to have a sprig)
• Salt Water for dipping (enough for people to dip their parsley into)
• Grape Juice or Wine (enough for each person to have 4 sips—you will also need 4 small cups or glasses per person)
• It is also traditional/symbolic to have a roasted lamb shank bone (Zeroah), and a boiled egg (Bytzah) on the table.
