As most of you know, Saturday, April 23rd, we entered into the season of Passover. This is a very important time on God’s calendar. It is literally a new beginning.
As I shared with many of you, I felt this Passover would be different, I felt it was a vital Passover season. This insight led me to send out an additional letter to our partners this past Friday. (For those of you who are not partners, I placed the letter at the bottom of this writing so that you can read it if you would like to.)
Today, we are in the midst of Passover, which ends this Saturday. I read this word from Bill Burns that is timely and confirming considering the times and seasons we are in. Please enjoy this word.

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:
“You will now find yourself in “defining moments”. This time of transition will define your journey and establish your path into the future. You will soon realize that you are on the path of no return. New developments will come quickly, and will create a spiritual rippling effect throughout your life. World conditions will be upset, and things will never be the same. These days will be like the days when Israel came out of Egypt and entered the land of promise.”
My spirit bears witness with this word. We are in a time of transition. I am reminded of the writing about the bridge – for many this time will be fearful – but it is time to cross over.
I also bear witness with the part that says ‘new developments will come quickly and cause a rippling effect. I believe some things are going to begin happening that will seem to be those ‘suddenlies’ that we often read about – however, these will be things that were in God’s plan all along – it is simply the timing of the manifestation of his promises.
World conditions will be upset – to me, they are upset already – however, I do believe that something is coming upon this earth because so many have turned from God and his word and ways. However, just like the first Passover, God has a plan for those who are faithful to him and those who follow him. He is taking them out of the place of bondage and lack and into the land of promise. He is taking them into a place filled with milk and honey if they will continue to follow him and his word. He did it once and he will do it again.
Throughout the word of God, God made a way of escape for his people, he is the same God today and he will not fail you.
Friends, we are in a time of transition, a time of crossing over. Keep your mind and hearts stayed on God, trust him. Especially when your land of promise begins to manifest. Especially then….keep your mind and heart stayed on God. It is often at the times when we are living in plenty and in a time of blessing that we take our eyes of God….don’t do that, keep your eyes on him. As you do, you will continue to walk in his promise – after all, JESUS IS THE WAY that God has made for us. Many Blessings as you celebrate this Passover Week!
Crossing Over NOW
by Kim Potter
I realize I have already sent out the partner letter this month – however, I felt impressed of the Lord to share something with you that I received from a trusted brother in the Lord. It has stayed on my mind all week long – tomorrow begins Passover – and it is not only a time of Passover but a time to CROSS OVER into all God has for us – a time of the parting of the Red Seas in your life. I don’t want any of you to miss this time in God – HIS APPOINTED TIME – a time of Passover and a time of crossing over….enjoy this short read today and remember our Passover Lamb tomorrow – celebrate HIM and HIS APPOINTED SEASON.
The Jews were not merely passed over just to be passed over. They were passed over so they could CROSS OVER! This, I believe is what the body of Christ has lost sight of. Each and every year that God’s people are passed over, they should be experiencing a corresponding cross over. This is what humility and experiencing the Lord Jesus Christ in your soul does, it takes you higher, it crosses you over. Kim as you know SO WELL and have been SUCH AN INSPIRATION as it relates to holding on when it seems like the breakthrough just is not going to come – WE ARE IN THE SEASON OF AN UNBELIEVABLE CROSS OVER, BREAKTHROUGH MOMENT! At some point at the beginning of God’s New Year, He WILL give a breakthrough to those who have remained faithful and maybe even to some whose faith has reached its breaking point and they have faltered. He is a merciful Father. I leave those decisions up to Him.
Passover has always been a preparation for a cross over, a breakthrough. God’s people just did not always understand the principle. THIS Passover IS significant. It WILL usher in a SEASON OF SIGNIFICANCE, CROSSOVER, and A BREAKTHROUGH! I felt impressed to share that with you this morning. Stay faithful my dear sister, only eternity will truly reveal the effects of your ministry. Continue to pray for us as we faithfully pray for you…….Get ready, get ready, get ready or stay ready, stay ready, stay ready. – DS
May the Blessings of Passover visit your home and family today – and may you cross over into all God has for you this Passover Season.
We love you and we are praying for you and your family today!
**** P.S. – Daily, when Breanne schedules our motivations, we use a template copy of the motivation from the day before – for Partner Letters, I use a template from the previous partner letter…I went online to locate the proper template and schedule this writing at the urging of the Lord even though I had already went to bed for the night. Now…keep in mind, I had no idea what I had written for the April Partner Letter, I was simply searching for the correct template – I had written the April partner letter almost a month ago and then I forgot about it…I have written many teachings since then. I was ASTOUNDED to see the title of the April Partner Letter – CROSSING OVER – friends, this is no coincidence. As I re-read the April Partner Letter I knew God was confirming what he had me share with you in this word today especially when he told me to name this word CROSSING OVER NOW. I have no doubt – IT IS TIME TO CROSS OVER NOW.
If you, like me, have forgotten the message of the April Partner Letter – I am leaving it at the bottom of this writing as a reminder…this I know more than ever, God IS SPEAKING – may we have ears to hear THIS DAY.
April Partner Letter – Crossing Over
I recently wrote a teaching about the day Breanne purchased her truck. I talked with you about the bridge and what God spoke to me about that bridge and about fear keeping us from reaching the other side. Assuming you read that, I want to reiterate on that subject.
I feel very strongly that God is saying ‘whatever you must do to reach the other side, just do it.’ Don’t allow fear, or timidity or past disappointments to stop you for going where God wants you to go. Don’t allow fear or past disappointments to cause you to doubt what he has spoken to you. If he has said it, he will do it, there is no doubt about it.
If you have never trusted God with your finances, trust him now. If you have never trusted God fully with your children, now is the time, trust him now. Sometimes, a physical reaction, such as driving over a bridge is not required, sometimes a simple changing-of-the-mind is all that is required for you to make the transition to the other side.
I feel for many of you, something has been stopping you, causing you fear, causing you to question what God has said or promised you. If that is you, I want to remind you of one thing…every single time Jesus said ‘we are going to the other side’ they made it to the other side, they simply had to remain in the boat with Jesus.
I can’t get the words off my mind that Jesus said to the disciples in Matthew 8:26. He said ‘why were you afraid? Oh ye of little faith.’ Oh my! I don’t want that to be me, do you? I want to hear him say ‘I have not seen such great faith before.’
Those are the words he spoke to the Centurion in Matthew 8:8-10; But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!
The Centurion knew that when Jesus spoke a word, there was great authority in that word and it was as good as done. Do you know the same thing? If Jesus has spoken something to you, do you realize it is as good as done? Yes, it is! You simply have to stay with him and go on to the other side.
Friends, and partners, I believe with ALL MY HEART, it is time to cross over to the other side – it is time. It is my prayer this week that you cross over to the other side in whatever area you are believing God for.
This month, April, I encourage you to sow a seed of transition, a seed that declares ‘I AM GOING TO THE OTHER SIDE and nothing is going to stop me or hinder me any longer’. Give that seed a name and sow it is faith, in great faith.
We are going to the other side, even if we have to do it afraid, it is OUR time to cross over and cross over we will, in Jesus name.
Please know that I LOVE YOU and we are praying for you daily!
