The Door is Open: Passover into the New!
Special Passover Service this Sunday, April 20

Dear Friends, Intercessors and Zion Aligned:

I believe that it is very important for us to understand the concept of this time of year.  As I have been sharing, this month is linked with Passover and the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  His obedience bought our FREEDOM! If you will notice, we made little emphasis of the national celebration of Easter because its timing was so far off from Passover and the true understanding of the power of the Blood shed to redeem us.  Therefore, we will be hosting a memorable Passover Sunday with a special service Sunday night to better understand our call to move forward into the next season.  Like never before, I believe as we continue in this season of new beginnings that we must understand the principles of Passover and Jesus of Nazareth's blood shed on our behalf. 

Robert Heidler and I will be leading this service which begins at 6:00 PM. We will have examples of the Passover Seder.  All of you joining us on the web will want to prepare bitter herb (horseradish or parsley soaked in saltwater), lamb (or chicken), wine (or grape juice), unleavened bread (or a cracker of some type), and a hard boiled egg. There is no charge or registration to join this service in person or by webcast.  (Go to www.gloryofzion.org and click on the webcast icon for details.)  We will have a special gift for each who joins us as a reminder of this Passover time.    

On Sunday morning, we will begin at 9 AM with a dynamic time where we ascend in worship and descend in war.  John Dickson and other musicians will be leading you in a Throne Room Experience, and I will be ministering on The Confrontation for Freedom.  At 10:15 AM, our corporate worship service will begin.  Linda Heidler will be teaching on Blood Boundaries followed by Allen Faubion teaching on The Passover Deliverance: Keep Going Until You See Your Promise! This entire day will be very significant! Don't miss signing on with us by webcast or coming to be with us in Denton.

PASSOVER! The Word of God revolves around the Feasts. They were holy assemblies for holy rehearsals. The remembrance of these physical events causes us to understand the spiritual significance of what came and what is to come! The Feasts forecasted His sacrifice for us.  Also, they foretell the full redemption of His people and the alignment of all nations, which are His inheritance. When we participate in the waving of the Firstfruits at Passover time and then receiving the anointing to gather and increase at Pentecost (Feast of Weeks), our faith is displayed and our confidence arises for our provision to be released.

Today, there is a futility in legalistically participating in the Feasts. We cannot legalistically keep the Feasts, but we can honor the Father by remembering Him and receiving from Him at these appointed times (Gal. 3:10). No longer do we have to seek an ultimate Sacrifice - Jesus has already been given on the Cross. This broke Satan's headship over us personally, as well as for mankind corporately. However, we must enter in to the fullness of this plan.  By participating and remembering the Feast times NOW, they cease to be shadows of things to come. They actually cause us to see our future path to our promise.

The Passover month is a time to CROSSOVER into the inheritance that has been promised you.  Joshua 3:15-17 says, And those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the time of harvest)...and the people crossed over completely to the other side of the Jordan. I believe we are moving in God's perfect time.  Timing is so important.  In Him, we move and have our being (Acts 17:24-26, Col. 1:19, 2:9).  I am praying for you to be in God's perfect timing.  Honor HIS BLOOD, let Him lead you out into your New Beginning and keep advancing with Him in faith until you SEE your promise manifesting.

The Burning Bush Pendant (now available in sterling silver with rhodium finish)


When God came down to deliver His people at Passover He began by revealing His glory to Moses in the Burning Bush. The burning bush is a picture of the heavenly Menorah, the 7-fold Spirit of God, which burns before the Lord in the heavenly tabernacle (Rev. 4:5). At Pentecost, God again revealed His glory to change the course of history. When the tongues of fire came upon the Church at Pentecost, we became the "burning bush" to reveal God's glory in the earth. 2 Cor. 4:7 says, "We hold this treasure in earthen vessels that the surpassing greatness of the power may be seen to be of Him." God wants us to receive His fire and display His glory in the earth!  Choose from three sizes: Small Pendant with 18 inch chain ($20), Large Pendant with 18-inch chain ($25) or Large Pendant with 24-inch chain, also suitable for men ($25).
