This is the day the Lord has made so…
I will rejoice and be glad that all around the world I am rejoicing with millions today that we have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, and in many languages we are all blessing Him and honoring Him who was slain.
9 And they sang a new song, saying: “YOU ARE WORTHY to take the scroll,And to open its seals; FOR YOU WERE SLAIN, And have REDEEMED us to God BY YOUR BLOOD Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
10 And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”
11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands,
12 saying with a loud voice: “WORTHY IS THE LAMB WHO WAS SLAIN To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
13 And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And TO THE LAMB FOREVER AND EVER!” (Rev.5:9-13, NKJV)

New Gates (by Kathy Gabler)
Our traditions can be excess baggage that we have to unpack for the journey through a new gate. We need to unpack passionless pieces and old seasons and expired obediences, those acts that were once a mandate but lost their effectualness as times and circumstances changed. Israel had many parameters for sacrifice. They were all teaching-tools and types to anticipate and understand the coming Messiah. All their animal sacrifices were blood that was shed for an exemplary nation until the Christ would come to shed His blood for all mankind. An expired obedience would be to continue the ceremony after the type had been fulfilled. That translates in our day as expired legalisms that want to impose on us the traditions of men instead of the freedom of Christ, like trying to breed a red heifer or build another temple or enforce religious calendar activities again. When God provides a gate, expired goals won’t fit through it.
