The Power Of The Firstfruits

The Power Of The Firstfruits…

Jesus rose as the firstfruits of the dead during the season of Passover. The timing is amazingly perfect since Passover is also the season of the firstfruits. It was in the Exodus from Egypt that God gave to Israel the law of the firstfruits.

In Exodus 13:1, He says, “Sanctify to me all the firstborn – whatever opens the womb among the children of Israel…”

So the law of the firstborn takes place at the very time that Israel is being “born” out of the womb of Egypt. In Hebrew, the word for the firstfruit is “Bikor.” “Bikor” literally means, “the one who breaks forth,” “the one who opens the womb.”

So it’s no accident that at the season of “the opening” and “breaking forth,” Jesus opened the tomb and broke forth! And for you who are in Him, you too have the power of the Bikor. No matter what you’re going through, no matter what the problem, what the obstacle, what the situation, no matter what, you’ve got the power to break forth and break through.

Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. John 15:2

Today, whatever situation you find yourself in, use the power of the Bikor to break forth and break through.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
