Passover Prayer and Fasting:
A Dream of Breaking FREE and Coming Out With Abundance!
It was unequivocally announced by an angel to Daniel:
“from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God [that is, in prayer and fasting], your words were heard; and I have come because of your words.” (Daniel 10:12).
Daniel had been fasting and praying in The Passover month (the first month on God’s calendar, Exodus 12:1; Daniel 10:2-4) and had a seriously unforgettable visitation by The LORD.
Then an angel brought a message (the answer to his prayer) to him from Heaven.
The other day (the night of the very first day of our Passover fasting and prayer), a very wonderful brother, named Emmanuel, was also given a very important message from Heaven, through a dream (Job 33:14-16).
In the dream, he told me, he was in a multi-storey building, and suddenly his cousin (called Andrew) broke through the floor (from underground) and came out VICTORIOUSLY with his junior sister (called Elizabeth).
Narrating their ordeal, Andrew said they had been held captive underground (beneath the building) for a very long time, and could not get help to get out.
He said he had shouted and tried in various ways to draw attention for their rescue but to no avail — nobody could hear and help.
However, after much effort, he had now broken free and came out with his sister Elizabeth.
There was great jubilation, celebrating their amazing deliverance and freedom.
But then, suddenly, out of nowhere, a violent fight broke out among some strangers who had emerged. They caused so much mayhem which cut short the celebration.
Emmanuel said, in another scene in the dream, he saw a serpent flying; it was being chased and attacked by two birds.
The serpent landed in a tree in a neighbour’s house with the residents undertaking animal sacrifice in the tree.
End of dream.
As you all know well, Emmanuel means “God with us“. This Passover prayer and fasting is by God, and He is with us in it.
The multi-storey building in the dream represented the prayer and fasting: a spiritual ‘high position’, the high call of God; indeed, some demonic strongholds are only dislodged by prayer and fasting (Habakkuk 2:1; Matthew 17:21 NKJV).
John was told from Heaven, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.” (Revelation 4:1). In prayer and fasting, we go up, Upstairs (The Third Heaven).
Andrew means “strong and manly”, “the mighty one, or conqueror”, “warrior”.
The instruction is thus, by the prayer and fasting, we must “wage the good warfare”, “strong in The LORD and in the power of His might.” (1 Timothy 1:18; Ephesians 6:10). And break FREE from longstanding bondage, as the children of Israel did in Egypt during the first Passover.
Elizabeth is the English version of the Hebrew name Elisheva, formed out of “El” (God) and “shav” (oath). The name also means “My God is abundance“.
God told Abraham, “By Myself I have sworn… BLESSING I will BLESS you… because you have obeyed My voice.” “I AM your shield, your EXCEEDINGLY GREAT reward.” (Genesis 22:16-18, 15:1).
Thus, this Passover, by prayer and fasting, we come out of all bondages, captivities, (and indeed, we come out of the lock-down!) with ABUNDANCE of “articles of silver, articles of gold and clothing” like the children of Israel, (Exodus 12:35, 36).
(In The Word of God, “clothing” indicates Divine promotion and adornment. As written, “we want to be… FURTHER clothed,” (2 Corinthians 5:4).
Divine promotion/ adornment is in both the flesh and spirit.
As 1 Peter 3:3,4 says,
“Do not let your adornment be merely outward… rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.”
In Genesis 41:42, “Pharaoh…clothed [Joseph] in garments of fine linen”.
In Esther 8:15, the king clothed Mordecai, “in royal apparel of blue and white, with a great crown of gold and a garment of fine linen and purple.”
In Daniel 5:29, “Belshazzar [the king] gave the command, and they clothed Daniel with purple and put a chain of gold around his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.”
In Luke 15:22, “the father [of the prodigal son] said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.”
And, oh, for the ultimate promotion and adornment,
“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints,” Revelation 19:7-8. Hallelu-YAH!.
In Exodus 12, the children of Israel celebrated the very first Passover in their houses behind closed doors, protected under lamb’s blood from the death angel. There was death pandemic in the land.
It is playing out right now exactly as it did then.
For the first time, The Church, “the Israel of God” (Galatians 6:14-16), is entering The Passover days this year in our houses behind closed doors, protected under The Blood of The Lamb from coronavirus death. There is death pandemic in the land.
And guess what: For the first time since the first Passover in Egypt, the nation of Israel celebrated the first night of Passover this year under a curfew, confined to their homes EXACTLY as happened on the first night of the very first Passover!
As The Times of Israel reported (8 April 2020) “A government-mandated curfew took effect in Israel on Wednesday afternoon, confining Israelis to their homes for the first night of the Passover holiday.”
Brethren, this Passover is a most serious time and season on God’s calendar for us. We must take GREAT spiritual note and act as led by The Holy Spirit.
After the Divinely-instructed lock-down, the children of Israel came out that same Passover period, asked for and received plenty of silver and gold and clothing — great wealth and Divine promotion/ adornment, as directed by God.
So it will be NOW for the believer who will follow God’s instruction to get BLESSED this Passover.
The whole world is dejected and hopeless right now,
“But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.” (Obadiah 1:17).
My beloved brethren, repeatedly, I am only humbly telling you what God is repeatedly telling me.
With the humility of our LORD Jesus Christ, I urge you: “Believe in The LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” ( 2 Chronicles 20:20).
During the first Passover in Exodus 12, the children of Israel came out with abundance. This year’s Passover period ends on April 12.
It is not a coincidence. It is Divine abundance determined for us at this time.
But you HAVE to request it. God granted what Jabez requested. The children of Israel got wealth and promotion and adornment as they requested.
Brethren, “by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6).
Emmanuel’s dream is loaded with important prayer points, insights and strategy.
In the dream, suddenly, out of nowhere, a violent fight broke out among some strangers, which cut short the celebration of Andrew’s miraculous deliverance.
In 1 Chronicles 4:9,10, the painful, miserable life of Jabez was turned around by God with great blessing exactly as he had prayed. But he also prayed that God’s Hand would be with him, and that God would keep him from evil.
We must pray against our “many adversaries” (1 Corinthians 16:9) and cancel their evil plans by The Blood of Jesus.
By The Blood of Jesus, cancel the plans of the devil to come to steal and kill and destroy.
Yes, destroy the devil and his angels and their evil plans against you, your blessing and your joy.
In the dream, the serpent flying points to “the prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2), chased and attacked by two birds (warrior angels of God).
Remember, in Revelation 12:7-9, Michael and his angels fought with “the great dragon… that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan.”
Therefore, pray FERVENTLY:
“LORD, let your angels fight and cast out the dragon and his angels out of my life, my blessing and my joy.
Let their way be dark and slippery, and let the angel of The LORD pursue them.” (Psalm 35:6).
I encourage you to often pray Psalm 35 against the many adversaries.
The serpent (in the dream) landed in a tree in a neighbour’s house with the residents undertaking animal sacrifice in the tree.
This is witchcraft.
Therefore, pray against witchcraft, destroy it by The Blood of Jesus!
Declare The Law of God against all demonic illegality determined against your life and blessing and joy, saying:
“In The Name of Jesus Christ, I command all demonic illegality determined against me destroyed by The Blood of Jesus, our Advocate with The Father.
For there is no sorcery against Jacob, nor any divination against Israel. It now must be said of Jacob and of Israel, ‘Oh, what God has done!” (Numbers 23:23).
Satan, you are the totality of illegality. You rebelled against God Almighty, you are a murderer from the beginning, you sinned from the beginning. Iniquity was found in you. (Isaiah 14:12-15; John 8:44; 1 John 3:8; Ezekiel 28:15).
According to The Law of God, your unclean, evil person, power and kingdom are illegal.
Satan, Satan’s throne, where Satan dwells (Revelation 2:13), the power of Satan (Acts 26:18), you are illegal!
Therefore, I command you punished by The LORD with His severe sword great and strong; yes, The LORD slay you the dragon in the sea! (Isaiah 27:1).
Satan, I declare to your destruction that you are the ultimate criminal awaiting sentencing, sentencing into the everlasting fire prepared for you the devil and your angels! (Matthew 25:41).
And I command you TORMENTED by this truth. For you the demons believe — and tremble! (James 2:19).
God sacrificed His Son for me to be saved and blessed; Jesus Christ has come that I have life and have it more abundantly, but YOU come to steal, kill and destroy!
Satan, in Jesus’ Name, I say “NO INDEED!” (Acts 16:37). Your sorceries are against The Law of God! (Psalm 119:85).
Therefore, I declare them null and void by The Blood of Jesus! I nullify your evil plans by The Blood of Jesus Christ, The LORD The Righteous Judge.
In The Name of Jesus, I DESTROY you Satan and Satan’s throne of iniquity, lack, suffering, delay, (etc.) out of every area of my life by The Blood of Jesus.
In Jesus’ Name, Satan, you are destroyed like the Amorite: your fruit above and your roots beneath (Amos 2:9). You are cursed and destroyed like the fig tree Jesus cursed in The Gospels.
In The Cross of our LORD Jesus Christ, Satan you are finished out of my life, family, possessions, race (course), ministry, business, career, (etc.). For Jesus said on The Cross “IT IS FINISHED!” (John 19:30).
Satan, as written, God has numbered your kingdom and finished it! ( Daniel 5:26).
Our Father in Heaven, I pray Your Kingdom come in my life and family, possessions, race, ministry, business, career.
Let The Throne of God, let The Throne of Grace ALONE be established, indeed, REIGN in my life now and forever! Amen.
God The Judge of all, ‘the proud have dug pits for me, which is not according to Your Law. All Your commandments are faithful; they persecute me wrongfully; Help me!’ (Psalm 119:85-86).
Let their table become a snare before them, and their well-being a trap. Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see; and make their loins shake continually. Pour out Your indignation upon them, and let Your wrathful anger take hold of them. (Psalms 69:22-24; Romans 11:9-10).
Thank You, LORD! AMEN and AMEN!”
Brethren, our God is ALMIGHTY, all-powerful. And His Word is true, certain and settled. Stand on His Word, rooted and grounded in His Love, steadfast in the faith.
With boldness, approach God by The Blood of Jesus.
Thank God always for the gift of God, Eternal Life!
Thank The LORD always for His goodness. Whenever you come before Him, “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and BLESS His Name,” (Psalm 100:4).
Repent always for your sins (known and unknown).
Repent for your sins, the sins of your parents, the sins of your ancestors (your father’s line and your mother’s line — all the way to Adam and Eve).
If you have a family, pray the same on behalf of your spouse, children and so on.
(If Satan is still bringing accusations against you, tell him: “Jesus said, “Let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” (John 8:7 NLT) You devil have sinned from the beginning. Therefore, back off in Jesus’ Name! Away with you!).
Then break generational curses by The Blood of Jesus. And further importantly, pray and command generational blessings to be released to you by The Blood of Jesus – all the way from Adam and Eve.
Ask The LORD for, and obey His directions/ instructions to be blessed, (Exodus 12:35-36).
Brethren, GO for it! (In British parlance, “go for it” is said to strongly encourage someone to do something, get something they really need to).
Let’s GO for it! Like Caleb and Joshua, we are well able!
