Passover Prophecy: New Mantles Are Falling Down

by | Apr 24, 2019 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

Today on the Hebrew calendar, we are in the midst of Passover, and Jesus is our Passover Lamb. On the Christian calendar, this includes Good Friday. I had a dream Friday morning that He was giving new assignments from heaven to people. I actually saw these mantles falling from heaven. Today is a day to hold out your hand and receive the new mantle assignment God has for you. Why is this significant? Because Friday was Passover, and it is the day He took the third cup, which is the cup of redemption that comes through suffering. Friday was the day His destiny was fulfilled.

The word cup in the Greek is poterion, which means figuratively “a lot” or “fate,” and fate means purpose and destiny. On Friday, Jesus’ destiny was fulfilled, and He is now giving out mantles from heaven.

The night before Jesus’ death, He shared the Passover meal with his disciples. In Matthew 26:26-29, the Word says:

As they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed it and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take and eat. This is My body.”

Then He took the cup, and after He gave thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.”

He said this because He was the drink offering. He was the blood of the New Covenant that was in the cup. The cup He took with His disciples that night was the third cup in the traditional Passover Seder meal that Jews participate in. This cup is also called the cup of blessing. The apostle Paul in referring to Communion, also discusses this cup in 1 Corinthians 10:16-17 when he says, “The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? For we, being many, are one bread and one body, for we are all partakers of that one bread.” And in 1 Corinthians 10:21, He says, “You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons.”

In Exodus 6:6-8, God gives four promises of the Passover that are shared at traditional Passover Seder meals, and one is revealed in the Scripture which says, ” I will redeem you with a stretched-out arm and with great judgments” (Ex. 6:6b). So, who is the stretched-out arm? Jesus, stretching His arms out and redeeming us as He took the judgment of sin upon Him so we would be set free and death would pass over us.

In the story of Jesus suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane. The same word for “cup” is mentioned here, in relation to the cup of redemption that comes from the suffering that He will endure on the night of Passover. In Matthew 26:36-45, the Word reads:

Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane and said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go and pray close by.” He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee and began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then He said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death. Wait here, and keep watch with Me.”

He went a little farther, and falling on His face, He prayed, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me. Nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”

Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “So, could you not keep watch with Me one hour? Watch and pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

He went away a second time and prayed, “O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.”

Again, He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. So leaving them again, He went away and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

Then He came to His disciples and said to them, “Sleep on now, and take your rest. Look, the hour is near, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Jesus asked three times, notice it was three times, that this cup of blessing, or redemption would be removed from Him, if it was God’s will to do so. Jesus asks God for the cup or His destiny to be stopped because of the suffering. However, the more He fought through the temptation by the power of the Spirit, the more He was empowered to fulfill His destiny or will of God which was to actually be “the blood of the New Covenant” shed for us.

Jesus is saying at Passover, “I will drink the cup of suffering and redemption, and that is the completion of My destiny.” That is the fulfillment of My destiny. Why is this important in relation to mantles?

Because if today on Passover, Jesus is saying, “I am sending mantles from heaven for My people”, He is saying, “The work is finished on the cross, and redemption has been made; therefore, My destiny has been fulfilled, and now you citizens of heaven and kingdom expanders will step into your new assignments today. So, lift up your hands as your borders have been expanded, the kingdom of heaven has come to earth and new mantles are being released for you to walk in.”

Ask Him about these mantles and find out which one He has given you for this new season. Ask Him to teach you to walk in this mantle as new opportunities will open, and you will be required to exercise these mantles by faith. {eoa}
