The word of the Lord has come to me all week with one word ~ water. This has puzzled me greatly as I was perplexed as to the message the Holy Spirit was conveying to me. Of course I had a number of ideas floating in my mind but none of these thoughts jelled with my spirit. As today approached, when I knew I would sit down and write this blog I was becoming worried that I would mess up Gods word. The fear of destroying God's word scared me.
As I was resting after dinner from a hard day's work on the back yard mowing, trimming and tiding up, the Holy Spirit began to bring his thoughts into sharper focus. I have become acutely aware over the past weeks of the importance of Biblical numerology. Once I would have dismissed this as superstitious but I have been soundly rebuked and I am are reading the word with a more open spirit.
All this is by way of introduction to the word that has been placed before me concerning Gods New Year 5777. The Holy Spirit has shown me that three sevens together preceded by a five have a high level of significance. The 777 dynamic of this year is something that only occurs once every 1000 years and it of course has never before come preceded by the significant number 5. God is saying to us ~ 'Back up and take notice of this new Hebraic year.'
The number 5 is the number representingGraceand 7 is the most sacred and mystical of all numbers and it representsCompletion, Fullness, Perfection,and the total spectrum of who God is.
I sense in my spirit and in the passages of scripture that the Holy Spirit is pulling out for me to focus on the we are standing on the edge of a tremendous out poring of God presence for the former things have passed away and behold I am about to do a new thing.
OK let's come back to that one word water that I began the blog with. As I was resting in my chair I had a vision of the times of Noah's ark ~ the rains came down and the floods came up. Water speaks to us of God's word. (Ephesians 5:26) I believe that in this Jewish New Year we will see a great out pouring of God's word For as the waters cover the sea'; so to will the understanding of God's word cover the entire earth up to the highest man made mountains.
God' word will be poured out from the heavens by the Holy Spirit to every man women and child who has ears to hear. While from the earth, will arise prophetic voices from every man women and child who have been called to walk in the spirit of Noah. This saturation of the earth by Gods 'rhema' will reach all the way up to the top echelons of the arts, entertainment, business, education, family, religion, media and government.
Such will the coverage of God's presence that any man made structure will be buried under the volume of God's word. Meanwhile all Disciples of Christ will be called upon to build their ark, which will carry them to the tops of the Babel towers. The ark comes to represent our position in Christ which is build up by praying in the spirit. (Jude 20) For as we take stand in the ark of Christ we will be able to go two by two ~ Jew and Gentile together and reclaim creation and set up the return of the King.
'For I am sending forth my harvesters two by two for they will reclaim the land and be the seeds of my planting says the Lord.'
Again I have been brought to take notice of the dimensions of the ark that God gave to Noah. I have come to realize that these measurements are not some haphazard numbers. It was 300 cubits by 50 cubits by 30 cubits. The number 300 connects us to Gideon's 300 and speaks ofcourageous ones who march to the beat of a different drum. 50 is the number ofJubileeand are also the number of the Holy Spirit, as Pentecost came 50 days after the Cross. 30 speaks ofmaturity but specifically connects us to Jesus, as that is the age when He started His ministry marked by how He revealed the Father's love.
Therefore I believe we can say the ark reminds us of our calling as soldiers, the power and unction of the Holy Spirit and the love of Christ as we go out two by two to reclaim the land in the name of Jesus. Being courageous, filled with the Holy Spirit, and walking in the love of Jesus to fulfill Gods words in this the Jubilee year of 5777.
A very enlightening blog, wmj! I enjoyed reading it.
