If you are wondering what Passover is it's simply the exodus from slavery. The events that came before Passover prepared Israel for exoneration, and their obedience would play a tremendous role in their escape.
In the Old Testament, Israel was granted citizenship by the Pharaoh of Joseph's time. And eventually, Israel became accustomed to the Eygptian ways and customs. After some time, Israel became the target of heinous oppression because of a new king coming into rulership (Exodus 1:8). The Israelites endured unspeakable affliction on many occasions including the attempted murder of their firstborn sons. However, because Shiphrah and Puah feared God they could not bring themselves to kill the newborn baby boys. El Shaddai (Lord God Almighty) was preparing Israel for their great exodus from the bondage of their wicked enemy.
I am reminded of these events because the Holy Spirit of Adonia rests upon me today. Adonia wants to declare that "Passover is here to prepare you for your Exodus." That said, there are a few instructions and restrictions that must accompany such a declaration. He who has clean hands and a clean heart will see the Lord Jesus Christ (Psalms 24:4).
Today, you will see how the spirits of perversion, anti progressiveness, and death have sought to dwell amongst us. Currently, there is an unspoken belief that we can obey God at our convenience, and Adonai (Sovereign, Lord, Master) still accepts our gift/sacrifice/offering to him as he would any other gift. God does not accept offerings given out of obligation, anger, or an unsettled heart. He respects and honors a willing sacrifice. God searches for people who are "living sacrifices" that are holy and acceptable (Romans 12:1). True worshippers are living sacrifices who understand how to please God. Amos 7:8 is a scripture that explains one way God measures his people.
The first thing that affects the exactness of a plumbline, is an insufficient or meager sacrifice. This is what I call a dead sacrifice. A dead sacrifice represents what we give to God after we complain, resist, and mope around. It's the idea that we can't do what God asked, yet expect accolades, commendation, or promotion for our failure to produce. It's a false perception to believe that we're better and stronger in the Lord while dodging spiritual test. The key is to patiently endure tests, trials, and hard seasons in life. But to believe that we're okay just because we're not "going through" is also false perception. Dead sacrifices stink. However, a living sacrifice cries out in humility, remains on the altar in obedience, and becomes a beautiful fragrance that produces true and proper worship (Romans 12:1 NIV).
A living sacrifice is a person who willingly abandons emotional baggage and humbly receives whatever Jehovah Shammah wants to share. When we continuously resist the living sacrifice principle, the plumbline in our life starts to miss the mark through bad thoughts, ugly behavior, and intentional sin. This is how the spirit of perversion makes contact with Christian believers. The spirit of perversion is also known as a perverse spirit. It is a master of appearances that lurks around altered, abnormal or warped sacrifices. Environments fueled by bad thoughts, ugly behavior, and intentional sin promote perversion on a high level. These offenders carry atmospheres that include idolatress practices such as rebellion, covetousness, gossip, pride, envy, and murder. These aberrations open up gulfs between them and God, leaving room for the full manifestation of perversion. According to binding the strongman literature, a perverse spirit includes a filthy mind, sex perversion, evil action, child abuse, twisting the word, and atheism. Ephesians 2:2 says, "Wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:"
Disobedience is the first error that God is sovereignly correcting. Passover is about remembering the obedience of Israel. It also commemorates a blood sacrifice for life. Passover without true, on time, at God’s command, and on His timing, obedience does not lead to freedom. The proof that we sacrifice to another God is disobedience. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience (Eph. 5:6). We choose to become living sacrifices when we obey God. However, when we disobey, we yield to death (Romans 6:23). Who will hear the sound of the Lord and not rebel or harden their heart (Hebrews 3:15)?
The spirit of death has made an entrance into our future through the portal of our past. When we don't leave the sinful nature behind, life spirals into cycles of destruction. We take steps forward only to be drug backward again; this is the spirit of anti progression. When we do listen to God, we end up regretting it. Come out from among them and be separate is a command, not a choice. To stay in touch with dead things, dead people, and dead situations is a choice. Those choices welcome the spirits of anti progression and death. One of the names for death is Sheol. The bible says, "Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, and neither are human eyes" (Proverbs 27:20). Sheol also means underworld and hell; meaning, the goal of sin is to drag as many to the underworld as humanly possible. Though we may not see the effects of death in a natural sense, we do see the cycles of loss, poverty, and pain. The spirit of death is hoping that we never come to understand its true purpose.
I heard the Spirit of Jehovah-Raah say,
"Separate my people into goat nations and sheep nations (Matthew 25:32-34). For they that are called to me will hear and heed and come at the sound of my wooing. They will not use enticing words any longer to convince their peers that they have chosen me. But this day I have decided to reveal the entirety of the matter. This time I will uncover the heart and intentions of those who love me by day and curse me by night. It is at this time that those who love me and follow after me will find the riches of my glory and sanctuaries of peace. Not the peace of this world, but the peace of my habitation. So do not be alarmed at the visitations in the days to come. Because "these" are coming to test the integrity of your heart, and when it is revealed, you shall sin no more, says God. The open opportunities from the past seek to find a place in you; to conceive in you; to perform through you. But do not be dismayed, says God, "For I will save you" (Jeremiah 30:11)."
