One of the most interesting things in the Exodus story to me is the verse when they come to the border of Cannan. While this happens after the exodus, the statement points back to the picture of prosperity the roasted lamb represented. Exodus 16:35 MEV “The children of Israel ate manna forty years, until they came to an inhabited land. They ate the manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan.”
If you listen to the prophetic words coming forth from the prophets today, a central theme is that we are entering a new era. Passover is a time to cross over and develop new ways of thinking. The children of Israel ate manna until they came to the border of the new, then the manna ceased.
This Passover each of us must choose to have a new way of thinking. As Scripture says, we must be renewed in our minds through the washing of the water of the Word. Many of us don’t even realize how TV, music, and social media fogs are minds and pulls us away from the Word of God.
If we were to start recording our daily conversations would we be surprised at the amount of fear, doubt, and unbelief we speak without even realizing it?
Our words create our world. Proverbs 18:21 tells us that life and death are in our tongue. Proverbs 6:2 tells us we are snared by the words of our mouth. We speak what dominates our thinking. One of the seven places Jesus shed His blood was the crown of thorns. We are redeemed from poverty and wrong thinking through His shed blood. Philippians 2:5 says we have the mind of Christ. So why don’t we operate in it? The truth is, most of our minds are filled more with the world than they are the Word.
I don’t have any steps for you in this post, I just have a simple challenge; study one chapter a day. Don’t just read it, bug dig into it. Get a Strong’s Concordance and look up definitions, pray over the chapter and read it in different translations. Instead of listening to music, even Christian music in the car, listen to teaching and get the Word in you.
The only way we can change the way we think is to change what we’re putting into our minds. Each of us has a choice, the reality is, we simply find it easier to turn on Netflix than a teaching or scroll through Instagram than read our Bibles. Only you, only I can make the decision – Passover is the time to say, I’m crossing over into a new way of thinking, a new way of talking and a new way of being. It starts with a choice, read and study a chapter each day. I suggest starting with James and Ephesians. They are both short and powerful books.
GIVE A PASSOVER OFFERING
During this Passover season, don’t miss the window of heaven that is open right now. Three times a year God has specific BLESSINGS prepared for us. We are BLESSED to be a BLESSING. As you give to Project AliyahProject Aliyah to help persecuted Jews go home to Israel, you are helping God’s chosen people and those who BLESS Israel and the Jewish people will be BLESSED.
