From Passover to Pentecost: A Time to Ask the Lord to Refine and Reform Us
America must return to an understanding of harvest! The fields are white! Unless we move forward with a “harvest” mentality, we will not see this nation experience the glory that God is longing to release. Both Jew and Gentile celebrate Pentecost. The Jews call this time the Festival of Shavuot. Christians know this time as Pentecost, when the Spirit of God came. There is a connection between the two. That word is HARVEST! As you read through the book of Revelation, you see that the concept of harvest will be restored to the Church in days ahead.
The time we are presently in, between Passover and Pentecost, is known as “counting the omer.” Incredible revelation starts pouring in during this 50-day period. This counting is intended to remind us of the link between Passover (which commemorates the Exodus), and Pentecost (which commemorates the giving of the Torah).
Leviticus 23:15 shares the blessing of counting the omer. The time is a transition time. Transition means you cross over into the fullness of the new ahead! The omer time is the time of looking at how you will consume your supply and unlock supply for the future. The word omer means to form and utter speech! During this time frame, we are refined like fine flour, so that we utter the promises of the future without any impurities!
During our Passover Celebration here at the Global Spheres Center in early April, we heard speaker after speaker exhort us about the new season we have entered. This is our time to watch and war in a new way, and to allow the Lord to develop our identity of who we are to be.This is a time to ask the Lord to refine and reform us, so that we can present ourselves to Him as an offering at the end of this 50 days culminating at Pentecost later this month.
I believe the Lord is touching our hearts and mouths so we release the words that will help form our destiny. The word omer pertains to the utterance of speech. So this time frame is one for speaking into our promise. These 50 days are a time for our mouths to be purified, so we speak what is pure. This is also a time of refinement, so we purify relationships so our promise can advance. I encourage each of you to speak into the place God is calling you to – Pentecost. Speak every day to get to Pentecost. By doing so, you are speaking into your refinement.
These 50 Days are a Turning Point For States and Nations! Prophetic Word for Australia and America
These 50 days are not only a personal turning point but also one for states and nations. That is why this week of prayer is so crucial! This is our time to embrace our destiny and move in the power of what the Lord is calling us to. Here is a prophetic word to not only the Body of Christ, but also to the United States and Australia at this time:
“Your feet will walk in a different direction this year. For even though you felt shaking ground last season, now you will walk on ground that is being solidified. There will be many on your path that will flee from the anointing that is now rising up in you, from your feet. I will shod your feet with peace, in a new way. Then the enemies that have tried to get on your highway will move out of the way. For many enemies have stepped onto the highway that you’re walking, but because you stood in the shaking, now the wind of My Spirit will clear your path ahead (Isaiah 35).
“I do have a fresh wind of My Spirit that is blowing, for I am coming with My breath in a new way. As in the beginning when I breathed breath into that first man, and he was able to rise up as a living soul, I am coming with a fresh breath for you. Even as it was in the Valley of Dry Bones, when I breathed breath into those dry bones, and I caused them to rise up in a new way and become a mighty army, I am breathing My breath into a corporate man in the earth, in this hour. No longer will it just be one person with the Breath of God, but a mighty army. A corporate man in the earth is arising with fresh breath.
“Even in this hour I am coming with a breath of God into lungs that have not been able to breathe. I am coming into My people in a new way. The healing breath of the Lord is rising up, and to those that the doctors have said, ‘There’s no cure for you,’ I say My breath is stronger than the report of the doctors. I am coming with fresh breath. So rise up in the strength of the Lord, and let the breath of God come into you, and see what I am going to do.
“This breath is going to give voice to My people, in this hour. Where the enemy has come to stop the voice of My people, I am going to cause a voice to be released that will stop the power of the enemy. So let the breath of God come! Let the breath of God heal! Let the breath of God restore! For My breath is flowing in a new way, in this season.
“My wind will be like a vacuum, and I will suck out of you those things that you thought you could have never been delivered from. The wind of My Spirit will both suck and remove, and then refill how you need to be filled, to create the identity that I have for you in the future. This is My day where Jehovah-M’Kaddesh, the Sanctifier, will come. This is My day where Jehovah-Tsidkenu, the Righteous One, will rise within you. Know that there will be a moment when you feel like your breath has been sucked away, but it’s because I have pulled out things that you thought could never be removed. Then you will feel a breath come in that will fill you in a way that you will become buoyant with faith in days ahead.”
“Dragons are on the Move…I am Mantling You with a Jehu Spirit…”
This also reminded me of a prophetic word given on March 30, 2014, which was previously posted on The Elijah List:
“This is not the same as you’ve seen in the past. This is not the same as what you’ve asked for in other seasons. This is a different glory, a glory change that I’m bringing into the land! You will shudder at the changes that are on the way in your land, and in other lands and with other people! For this is a time that the blood that runs deep will now be sanctified.
“This is a time that My Spirit will go deeper than I have gone in the past. For this is a time of birthing what is new, but yet bringing forth that which is old, and treasures will erupt!Treasures will erupt! Treasures will erupt! I will bring forth what has not been seen, and I will cause your gifts to come alive in ways they’ve never come alive. You will feel the shuddering, birthing pains within you, and from that you will bring to birth the change that is necessary for you to enter into this season.
“So know this: Dragons are on the move, and even the ‘great dragon’ is now mounting up. Nations that will align are now aligning. So watch carefully and look deep into the circumstances around you for these are days of great change. Watch the signs on your road, for your road is now changing. New opportunities are coming. Watch now, for I will realign your path!”
Word released in February 2013, by Barbara Wentroble, Keith Pierce and Chuck Pierce, which was previously posted on The Elijah List:
“I am mantling you with a Jehu spirit in this hour. I’m going to cause that Jehu spirit to rise up in you and overturn what has stopped the prophetic voice in days past; I’m going to give you the power and the anointing to break the power of that. I am resurrecting that gift that is in you, which was shut down and pushed aside. This is the hour that I come and I cause a fresh, new river of My anointing to flow through you. Reach out and receive a new mantle. Let the Jehu spirit come upon you to stop all the tactics of Jezebel. I say her day is over. This is the day I’m calling the prophets to arise.
“I am the Ancient of Days, and I’m recreating a momentum for your life. I am slowing you down so I can accelerate you in days ahead. For the enemy has attempted to wear you down. The enemy has attempted to change laws and change times to begin to stop you from accomplishing My will. The enemy has attempted to trap you by getting you out of My timing.But the Ancient of Days is now rising over you to reset your pace ahead. Stand with Me and travail for the 21-day period that I tell you. And when you do that your pace for the future will be re-ordered.
“He is coming as the Ancient of Days, and because He is the Ancient of Days, there is an ancient key that He carries. And in the carrying of this key you have seen the enemy take his place between you and the promise at this level. Press in, press in, press in and contend with the enemy because even over the next 21 days I will give you the strategy to contend with the one who has set himself to contend with you. And then as you have pressed the 21 days, I will hand you the key of the Ancient of Days, and then I will contend with the one that has contended with you!
“Many hearts have been wearied and many, many minds have grown cold in My thinking process. But I am resetting heartbeats, and I’m opening up what’s been closed down. I’m restoring and I’m causing you to walk in a time that escaped you in one season. If you will set your pace with Me, the next 7 years I will produce greatly for you and My storehouses will be made full.” –End of prophecy
Let Harvest become a reality in your life as you move forward in days ahead!
