Dear Celebrating Saints:
Firstfruits always provides a lens and focus for us to advance into God’s next level of His blessings. I fully believe understanding the process of firstfruits is a biblical key to prospering. God planned for His people to meet corporately and worship each month. This celebration is called Rosh Chodesh. This celebration occurred in both Old and New Testament history. This was a major key to the early Church’s power and success. Proverbs 3:9-10 says, “Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the FIRSTFRUITS of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.” (NKJV) In Romans 11:16, “For if the FIRSTFRUITS is holy, the lump is also holy!” We sanctify our FINANCES by giving God our firstfruits. We sanctify our TIME by giving God a firstfruits also! By participating in Firstfruits we are:
- Reminded that God is the Source of ALL Blessings!
- Disciplined to seek His Kingdom FIRST!
- Stirred to remember that He is to be our FIRST Love!
- Released into revelation that directs us from the WAVE offering until the time of gathering the HARVEST!
- Assured of CONFIDENCE that our Father will ALWAYS provide!
- Initiated into a new expectation of a VISITATION and HARVEST that will come in days ahead.
By disciplining yourself to participate in Firstfruits celebrations, the process of watching over our INHERITANCE matures. This leads to your promises being fulfilled! Firstfruits celebrations demonstrate and move us closer to the FINAL INGATHERING that is being developed in our hearts! (Heb. 11:13-14, Eph. 1:11,14,18; Col. 1:12; I Peter 1:4)
Judah Goes First!
This Firstfruits Celebration is one of the most important of any year, but especially this year of 5777. This is worth you watching and meditating upon. I shared on the importance of Firstfruits. We then demonstrate “Judah Goes First!” with prophetic worship. Robert Heidler’s teaching, “Aligning Your Seasons to Prosper!” was one of the most revelatory teachings ever of why we align apostolically and in God’s timing! You will prosper from celebrating this Firstfruits of Nissan 5777! Click HERE to watch the replay.

The Heavens Are Shifting!
After yesterday’s Firstfruits Celebration with Judah going first, we saw a tornadic hailstorm pass through our region last night. The picture above shows some of the baseball size hail that hit several cities. Thankfully, we all survived without personal injury. In this season of shifting heavens, let’s continue to declare that our praises are seeding the atmosphere for an outpouring of Passover blessings.
