Summary: There is no power that can contest with the power of prayer.
“Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover. And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever. And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the Lord will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service. And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service? That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord’s passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshiped. And the children of Israel went away, and did as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve the Lord, as ye have said.”
The Passover is one of the greatest events in the Bible, but sometimes, we do not utilize the advantages and lessons that we can learn from it. The Passover was the day that the Lord God, made the angel of death to pass over the Hebrew houses in Egypt, after they had sprinkled the blood of the lamb on their lintel, as a sign on their door posts. The Passover, was the day that the stubborn pursuer, Pharaoh was defeated. After the Passover, he had no option but to release God’s people. Likewise beloved, right there where you are today, if you would decide with anger and violence that you want today to be a PASSOVER for you, it shall be so in Jesus’ name. After the Passover, there was no contest again. The Pharaoh that said: “I know not the Lord, neither will I let the people go!”, he was the same person that said: “.... Go, serve the Lord as you have said.”
Are you there beloved, and there is an enemy that has refused to let you go; maybe it is a spirit husband or wife, maybe it is debt or ill-health or household wickedness or any other trouble, if you decree a Passover over it today, by the time the angel of death moves upon it, that problem will have no option but to let you go. They will say to themselves that you are untouchable and that they should let you go. I declare unto you beloved, by the power in the word of God and as the spirit of the Lord liveth, that today, shall be a Passover for you in the name of Jesus.
Why did I say so? It is because you are a child of God and Pharaoh has no option, but to release all your imprisoned blessings and set you free from your bondage in the name of Jesus. I stand upon the word of the living God and I declare that the angel of death shall pass over your life and family, in the name of Jesus!
The Passover gave an illustration of what God could do and He is still doing, when He has had enough. It is an illustration of the binding power of the covenant of blood. God said they should take a male lamb that is one year old and that is without blemish, kill it and smear the blood on the lintel of their doorposts. They should put it on three spots: above and along side, on the right and on the left, so that anyone who passes under it into the house will be covered. The three spots could be taken to represent the sign of the cross on which the Lord Jesus Christ died at Calvary for the remission of our sins.
