To coincide with fasting prayer session III

Exodus 13:8-10
13:8. "And you shall tell your son in that day, saying, 'This is done because of what the LORD did for me when I came up from Egypt.'
13:9. "It
shall be as a sign to you on your hand and as a memorial between your eyes, that the LORD's law may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand the LORD has brought you out of Egypt.
13:10. "You shall therefore keep this ordinance in its season from year to year.

Passover = freedom from sin, repenting, and being released from sin.
Passover shall be a real sign, or can be seen and can be heard in our lives.

There are 3 signs of Passover as follows :
  1. Sign on hand= repentance in behavior/attitude.
    Our behavior must be right, good and pleased to God.
    It must be RIGHT first, than GOOD.

  2. Sign between eyes= repentance in mind and heart.
    Mind and heart must be released from evil and unclean desire.

    Mark 7:21-23
    7:21. "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
    7:22. "thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.
    7:23. "All these evil things come from within and defile a

    Foolishness means one cannot be advised by true teaching Word.

    We must be free from evil and unclean desire, so we can accept God's will through the Word.

  3. Sign on mouth= repentance in speech.
    So, there is God's law/true teaching on the mouth.

    Malachi 2:7
    2:7. "For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, And people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.

    The practices are:
    • Our speech is true speech, means being in accordance with the true teaching Word.
    • Speech in accordance with the true teaching Word which is an answer for the world.
    • Testifying.
    • Worshiping God.

      Psalms 95:6
      95:6. Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.

      Worship is aimed at:
      1. God the Creator, so we are in mighty Hand of mercy from The Creator.
        We will experience power of creation from nothing to exist for taking care our lives.
        And from impossible to possible, for finishing all our problems.

      2. God as Chief Shepherd.
        It means, we are sheep for the slaughter who are in Chief Shepherd's Hand of mercy.

        Revelation 7:17

        7:17. "for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

        Chief Shepherd's Hand of mercy will lead us to living fountains of waters, to beautiful future life until lead us to the last shepherding place at New Jerusalem.

      3. God as bridegroom.
        Revelation 19:6-7
        19:6. And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
        19:7. "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."

        We will worship with saying "ALLELUIA", it means we are weak bride, but we are in Bridegroom's Hand of mercy.

        Ephessian 5:25-27,29
        5:25. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
        5:26. that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,
        5:27. that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
        5:29. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.

        Results of worshiping Bridegroom are preservation power, protection, cherishing, giving happiness, and sanctification power, until someday we do not have spot but become God's bride who will be lifted up to greet God's second coming.
God blesses us.
