As we draw to the end of this year 2016 but more importantly as we have already entered into the Hebrew year 5777 we must be cognisant of what lies ahead in the Spirit.
Paul writes and encourages us to be wise and prepared for that we may face. Jesus’s ministry was one that is painstaking in detail and demanded that we should be well prepared. If one looks at the current situations we are facing here in South Africa and on a global scale daily there is no doubt we will have to have strength and boldness to overcome much.
Boldness to overcome fear
This means that we are going to have to get brutally honest with the Lord and face our fears in His presence. If you do the study of the Hebrew calendar 5777 you will find that there is ample allocation and invitation for the bride/church to enter into God’s presence and rest. (Hebrews 4:7-10) Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts. For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from His. Hearing the voice of the Lord will bring great rest.
Life of Christ made manifest
From this place of rest and intimacy the life of Christ can and will be made manifest. The life of Christ will be made manifest through His word.
The symbol for Zayin (Zayin is the number 7; it also means sword or sharp weapon).
The sword is a weapon that cuts and separates. The word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Hebrews 4:12. As you spend time with the Lord so He will reveal the precise word that your situation has need of. The revelation of His written word will be astounding. It will set you free from your bondage and give you the wisdom you require to advance.
According to Chuck Pierce; “This is the Year of the Sword of the LORD Opening up Portals of Vision! This is a year the SWORD of the LORD WILL CONTEND for the WELLS of REVIVAL in the Earth! The year ahead is a year of War and Worship! This will be an incredible time of understanding the conflicts and strategies of triumph that will impact the remainder of this decade. This is a time of completing purposes and bringing them to fullness. Be one of those who attends and receives revelation that will help direct us for the next several years.”
Time of great revelation
We are entering into a time of great revelation. As a thousand years is as a day to the Lord and a day to the Lord is as a thousand years (2 Peter 3:8) so it will be Yeshua revealing His end-time bride.
There is much truth that Holy Spirit wants to reveal. A time when the blueprints for the Church will be revealed. It’s a time for the wisdom of the true Apostolic working together with the Prophetic.
Supernatural favour, greater divine connections
A time for supernatural favour and greater divine connections than in the past. This is Kingdom set up. It is a divine network that began years ago and is being set in greater place for bigger work. New partnerships will form and deep connections will emerge for Kingdom work.
Revelation of God’s provision
A time for revelation of His provision as He delights to bring increase and order to the downtrodden brokenhearted and disappointed. Provision will be made available where God directs. The banqueting table will be well laid.
Increase in giftings for God’s glory
A time of the Lord using all of our giftings and causing an increase in these areas for His Glory. The Apostolic will emerge in order to facilitate the number of souls coming into the Kingdom, the Prophetic will work in unison with the Apostolic in new fields for the harvest.
Looking for gold in each other
Finally as we position ourselves with Christ, we will see others through His eyes, we will feel His heartbeat for them, think His thoughts, dream His dreams and interpret His dreams for the pharaohs of this world, look for the gold in each other for the days of digging in the dirt are done.
