Can You Feel It... A New Day is Dawning
Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year which started on Sunday evening, 13 September) is now officially over and we are in the 10 Days of Awe. Rosh Hashanah, also known as the Feast of Trumpets is when, according to Jewish tradition, the books are opened for God to review our lives and decide whether we will be inscribed for a good year. They believe that the inscription does not happen on the New Year, but rather after the 10 days of Awe during which one can still repent and get a good decree from Heaven. These Days of Awe end with the feast of Yom Kippur (23 September). It is on this day that God's decision is final and you are inscribed for a good year - or not! This is the Jewish understanding of these Feasts, but there is a spiritual significance for us as believers as well.
The feasts of the Lord are 'set times' or moedimwhere God wants to meet with His people. I believe that in these set times, God releases instruction, empowering and impartation for the new season. We are entering the year 5776 and it IS a new season for us. But the enemy is trying to keep us locked up in the old season and wineskin. On Rosh Hashanah, I heard the Lord speak this word to me:
Today is a new day – in every sense of the word. The old order is finished. From today, God is starting to lift His hand and grace off of those who do not want to move with Him into the new land.
A new order is about to emerge, the sons of God are being birthed into the earth. Labour pains are being felt in the earth and the enemy has come near to devour the baby as it is being born, but God has another plan. He is empowering His sons with supernatural ability to administrate, legislate and move in the heavenlies as never before. All our learning has been for such a time as this.
It is time to step into the fullness of our inheritance as sons. Time to begin to move into the land which Father has promised us. Time to take the land many have seen from afar off for so many years. The birthing of sons, marked and anointed with the oil of glory is enabling us to taste the power of the age to come. The mantle of Melchizedeck is falling. A priestly and kingly authority to establish government over nations and tribes – a government that will serve the purpose of the Father and bring glory to Him. A government that will establish the cities of refuge to hide God’s people in the day of trouble.
The builders are coming forth. The sons, equipped with blueprints for the kingdom are coming to build according to the pattern. They have the tools necessary to build, they have the resources necessary to build and they have the authority to manifest the kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
Do not delay, leave behind the old. Embrace the new. A separation is occurring at this time – let go of every old thing that would seek to hold you in bondage to the old. Take hold of the new thing that God is doing. You do not need to understand everything, you do not need to understand anything, you simply need to, by faith, reach out and take His hand and say YES to what He is doing. He will unfold it all to you, He will provide the revelation and understanding that you need. But now is the time to say yes.
I know that many of you are sensing a shifting and movement in the spirit - I encourage you to simply take hold of God and say 'YES, count me in'. We need to be like Isaiah who although he knew he was a man of unclean lips - was positioned to be cleansed and could go and do what God called him to do. As God is calling us to Him in these days, the enemy would want to come and say, "Who do you think you are? Why would God want to use you?" Well the enemy is saying that, because YOU are exactly who God is wanting to use. YOU have been prepared for such a time as this. Do not let the lies of the enemy hold you back, do not let tradition, fear of failure, fear of man, past hurts or ANYTHING stop you from entering into the new thing that God is doing now.
This September, a new order is being birthed, the enemy knows that and he is running around fueling rumours, fear and general turmoil. Jesus warned us of this in Matthew 24:6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.It is simply a sign that God is getting ready to bring in the greatest harvest of all time and He is getting us ready to play the part of our lives.
Don't get distracted now, do not let the enemy pull you into fear and unbelief. Position yourself with a YES in your heart and get ready to move forward into your new day!
