Dear Redeemed Ones,
This is one of our favorite times of year as we enter into a time of remembering the sacrifice of our Lamb and the celebration of our resurrected King. As well, we love to enter into the celebration of Passover!
When we enter into Passover, we are reminded that this was the last meal that Jesus had here on earth with His disciples. Leaven, which represents sin, had been cleansed from the home, and the Lamb, Himself, observed the feast with His friends. Still, they had not understood that His kingdom would not be an earthly one. Together, they celebrated the freedom from the bondage of Egypt and the power of the blood on the doorposts in that first Passover. They ate the unleavened bread that reminded them that their forefathers had no time to let bread rise for the journey ahead. They tasted the bitter herbs that reminded them of how their people had suffered in their slavery. And they ate of the lamb. THIS PASSOVER THE DOORPOSTS WOULD BE THE BEAMS OF A CROSS THAT WOULD BE STAINED WITH THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB OF GOD!
This Passover was different from others. Jesus used the symbolism of the meal to illustrate to them who He was. He essentially said, “This meal is a picture of Me. Whenever you have Passover from now on, remember Me. I am the bread, the wine is My blood–I am the Lamb!” After dinner, He laid aside His garments and as a servant, washed their feet. Isn’t this a true, riveting part of the picture of our redemption? Jesus made Himself of no reputation and when we walk in Him, we are not insecure and concerned about our position or recognition. Let us remember that He was beaten beyond recognition for our sakes. Our pursuit should not be to seek the approval of men, but to lift Him up through our lives so that He will be seen and glorified! Because He stretched Himself out on the cross, death has got to pass over us!
Recently, we have been revisiting the word that God gave me in January when I was at Glory of Zion for “Start the Year off Right” CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO The Lord has been saying to us that we must lift up His standard in this hour. He is looking for standard bearers. What is the standard? His cross is our standard….unrestrained, outrageous, unconditional love, radical obedience, and freely flowing forgiveness. His Word is also our standard by which we live our lives.
In this day, there are many winds of doctrine that are not aligned to the principles of God’s Word. In the last days, many will be deceived because of going after teachers who “tickle their ears” and flatter their flesh. LET THE REMNANT ARISE AND LIFT UP THE BANNERS OF HIS CROSS AND HIS WORD! We cannot emphasize enough the need for discipleship and the study of the Word of God in this hour. Alignment, accountability and authority are very closely linked. Good works that seem successful are not necessarily good fruit. The Word says that good fruit comes from hearing the Word and understanding it. ( Matt 13:23) Good fruit is a direct result of understanding the Word of God! Many will say they have done this or done that in His name and He may not even recognize them in the final day. Therefore in this Passover and Resurrection season let us hear and receive the Word and bring forth fruit for His glory.
With these things on our hearts, we have planned some key gatherings for the months ahead. We do not want to just have conferences but rather, key strategic gatherings to move us forward with what God is saying to us.

May the power of His resurrection invade any plans of darkness and arise in brilliant radiance through your lives. We look forward to being with you in the season ahead to pursue His purposes for the Prophetic Remnant here in Arizona!
For His Glory,
Jody and LaNora
