For most of the year I have been on a journey with Adonai my heavenly Father. Holy Spirit has been teaching me the prophetic Voice of the Hebrew language and my mind is being renewed by this ancient language. Much revelation is being poured into my soul and spirit as I learn the significance of this language.
A great blessings that I am now experiencing is the Hebrew calendar. This is the calendar that God gave Israel when they came out of Egypt, “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.” When God delivered His people from slavery He gave them new times and new seasons. It was His calendar which revealed His purpose revealed in the seasons. I believe that this calendar was established by Adonai in the creation recorded in Genesis 1:14, “Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years.” And in chapter 2:2-3 “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then Adonai blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which He had done.”
I believe that this is the calendar that Adam and Eve lived by in the Garden before the fall. It is also possible that they continued to live by God’s calendar even after they left Eden.
Well in most of the world now we live by the Gregorian calendar, a Roman calendar that follows the Greek mindset. However in these times God is restoring so much that the ecclesia lost. Adonai is restoring the roots of the church, our Jewish heritage (Rom 11:16-18) and God is restoring His calendar to His people. Even though we live by the Gregorian calendar our blessings and understanding of the seasons is discovered in God’s calendar which He gave to Israel when they came out of the slavery, the house of bondage.
So today is July 1, 2013 on the Gregorian calendar and in a few days we will celebrate the independence of the United States. But on the Jewish calendar this is the month Av, the fifth month. As I consider this month Av and many notable events that that occurred in this month I know that you will be blessed as you pursue God’s purpose in this fifth month.
First the word Av means Father in Hebrew. This is the month of the Father and you. James 1:17 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights (seasons, days and months) with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” In the month of Av as you daily seek Father expect gifts to come to you and overtake you. Expect angels to bring you gifts from heavenly places. These gifts are blessings that the Father delight to give you. They will be answers to prayers, ideas and strategies for this season, stories, poetic verses and new songs that reveal the love of the Father for you His child. Expect prophetic words and prophetic movements that will reveal the heart of Father to you.
This is also the month that Ezra the Scribe entered Jerusalem after left Babylon. In Ezra 7:9 it says, “On the first day of the first month he began his journey from Babylon, and on the first day of the fifth month (July 1; the month of Av) he came to Jerusalem according to the good hand of the Lord (Adonai) his God (Elohim) upon him.” Ezra arrived in Jerusalem on the first day of Av which is today. The good hand of his Father led him out of Babylon into Jerusalem. Ezra the Scribe was led by Father from slavery to freedom to teach the people of God the Torah. This is the month where Father is leading His scribes from Babylon (confusion, disorder, judgment) into Jerusalem (peace, order, the house of God). My spirit is soaring as I consider the leading of Father and where He is leading His scribes in this hour.
The month of Av is also connected to the fifth letter in the Hebrew alphabet. The fifth letter is Hey, which means breath and revelation. In this month the Father is giving you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him the eyes of your understanding being enlightened that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints (Eph 1:17-18). You will see more clearer as you seek Father for more. You will know more clearly His will as you walk with Father. Ezra knew the plan of Father for him before he entered Jerusalem. Revelation and wisdom are going. to flood your spirit this month. You will prosper as Father gives you specific directives to walk out. Listen to Him and Hear Him. This is going to be an incredible month for you. Seek Father and walk with Him every day. Open your ears to hear Him and He will not disappoint.
