On Passover: New Mantles are Falling Down

Today on the Hebrew calendar the Passover begins, and Jesus is our Passover Lamb. On the
Christian calendar, we call it Good Friday. I had a dream this 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 today is Passover and it is the day He took the third cup, which is the cup of
redemption that comes through suffering. Today is 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. Today Jesus’ destiny was fulfilled and today He is giving out mantles from

The night before Jesus’ death, He shared the Passover meal with his disciples. In Matthew 26:26-
29 (NIV), the word says, “While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given
thanks, He broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take and eat; this is my body.’ Then He
took a cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of
you.  This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of
sins. I tell you, I will not drink from 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 will 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 (KJV) 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 (KJV), when he says, “Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of
devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.”

In Exodus 6:6-8, God gives 4 Promises of the Passover which 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.” 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 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 (NIV), the word reads, “Then Jesus went with his
disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and He said to them, ‘Sit here while I go over there and
pray.’ He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and He began to be sorrowful
and troubled. Then He said to them, ‘My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death.
Stay here and keep watch with me.’ Going a little farther, He fell with his face to the ground and
prayed, ‘My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you

will.’ Then He returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. ‘Couldn’t you men keep watch
with me for one hour?’ He asked Peter.  ‘Watch and pray so that you will not fall into
temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.’ He went away a second time and
prayed, ‘My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your
will be done.’ When He came back, He again found them sleeping, because their eyes were
heavy.  So, He left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same
thing. Then He returned to the disciples and said to them, ‘Are you still sleeping and resting?
Look, the hour has come, and the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners.  Rise! Let us
go! Here comes my betrayer!’”

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 fulfillment of my destiny. Why is this important in relation to

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
