April 2017 Newsletter - "Are You Ready for Passover?" by Pastor Brad Nottingham
Greetings Saints, We welcome the LORD, YAHWEH to have HIS way in us, to fulfill HIS will in all that we do, HALLELUYAH!
As we step into April in the Gregorian calendar, the world groans in travail to birth the process of redemption on HIS earth. This is the first month of the spiritual calendar for HIS children; this is the beginning of how the LORD gave the redemption process to HIS children on earth. In Exodus 12 the LORD spoke to Moses:
Exo 12:1-2 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, “This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.”
Not only did the LORD start HIS calendar this month, a way of keeping an account of all HIS feasts for the earth and HIS children, but also all the feasts began and are established from this day forward. As we step into Nissan, the first month of YAHWEH’s calendar, we see the first feast: the Feast of Passover, a beautiful picture of YAHSHUA who gave HIS life for ALL of the earth to be redeemed from the demonic force we all battle every day. We see that the LORD told HIS children to take the blood of the sacrificial lamb and put the blood on the doorpost on your house so the plague of death does not come into their house. We see that the children were instructed to eat of this sacrificial lamb, and as YAHSHUA stated in the New Testament to eat of HIS body, HE was telling us to partake in HIS FATHER’S feasts. HALLELUYAH!
Exo 12:11-14 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD'S Passover. For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever.
As we step into this Passover, the first feast, the beginning of redemption, an accounting of time to be redeemed, and an ordinance to be keep forever, we must ask ourselves: Do you have HIS blood on your doorposts? Are you ready for this redemption process? Passover is only the beginning; it is the gift from our FATHER who has given us HIS only begotten SON for restoration to the earth and all the inhabitants. We are looking at this season as a spiritual awakening here on earth, to bring a spiritual understanding in ourselves and to HIS earth. The time is here and now, so let us enter into HIS season as a beginning to our redemption, through the revelation of the truth, for each and every one of you, your house, and the earth, for all the faithful, the beloved of the FATHER, whom have been chosen and written in the book of life from before creation.
We want to continue to follow and honor our FATHER’s feasts and commandments. We invite you to partake with the Forerunner family as we have Mitzvot study every Wednesday, as Apostle Petro releases the spiritual understanding of our FATHER’s Torah commandments. On our website www.forerunnertv.com, you can follow all our meetings live and find when and where the meetings are held.
Prepare, overcome, and step into this redemptive season, being gird up with the righteous fear of the LORD and follow our FATHER’s feasts now and forever.
HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME BEING THE BLESSING YOU HAVE BEEN CREATED TO BE!
Shalom Blessings, Brad
