We are now in the time of the Jewish Passover celebrations, Friday April 22 – Saturday April 30, 2016. We remember the great deliverance of the Hebrews from Egypt and how God covered them with the blood of the lamb. (Exodus 12-13)
We know that God fulfilled this great feast with Jesus, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. He lived, died, was resurrected, and has ascended to the right hand of God! HE IS ALIVE! (Luke 23-24)
Fifty days after Passover, the Hebrews arrived at Mt. Sinai and God gave them the Ten Commandments and was further bringing His nation into existence. This was the first Pentecost and God established it as a feast. (Exodus 19-20)
Read these passages and see the majesty, power, might, and awesomeness that God displayed in this event.
Fifty days after Jesus’ last Passover with His disciples, and having appeared to them for forty days and then ascended to the Father, God began pouring out His Spirit upon all flesh to fulfill Joel’s prophecy recorded in Joel 2:28-32. Pentecost had now been fulfilled with the Jesus’ promise of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:1-4)
The promise was fulfilled with a “violent rushing wind with tongues of fire”! Days of glory with “wind and fire”…the breath of the Spirit and the fire of the Spirit!
Fifty days from Sunday April 24 will be Pentecost (June 11-13, 2016) and we can receive the promised blessing of the pouring out of the Holy Spirit upon all flesh. We can expect the glory that comes with “the wind and fire of the Spirit”!
God is wanting and bringing to pass the maturation and perfection of His people by giving them the treasure of His son Jesus! He declares that “Christ in us…the hope of glory” is what will bring to pass “every man complete in Christ”!
(Col. 1:27-29; 4:2-6)
POSITIONING TO RECEIVE THE PROMISES
From the 22nd of April to June 12 will be fifty days. Pentecost blessings will be poured out! God began to reveal to me that we have FIFTY DAYS TO GLORY: WIND AND FIRE!
He has given me some very detailed instructions of how we are to pray and declare each day until Pentecost! He is longing to move us from “Glory to Glory” during these days. The great harvest of the the nations…our nation included…is that which burns in the heart of Jesus! He will change us as we follow these steps!
FIRST STEP: 60 second prayers over each passage.
Releasing faith into and with each declaration of His Word!
Takes 30 minutes since there are 30 scriptures. These are scriptures which God has been giving us over these past weeks.
Pray in The Spirit/in tongues for 30 minutes for the Holy Spirit to release these truths into and through our spirits and minds.
This is one hour of declaration and prayer that will change us further into the “image of Jesus”! Ask for the truths in each verse to be manifested in your life! Declare that they are manifested and being perfected in you! Praise and thank Him that they are alive in and through you! The word of God is living and active and sharper then any two edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). Release faith in the living and transforming power of His presence!

REMEMBER THESE WORDS OF JESUS!
“And Jesus answered saying to them, “Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.”
