This is the prophetic word for February 2020, the Hebraic month of Shevat. Get Ready to Bloom.
This Hebrew month of Shevat began on January 25th and goes through February 25th. 15th of Shevat (Tu B’Shevat) is known as the New Year of trees. This year it is on February 10th. This is a celebration of the almond trees coming into bloom! What is interesting about this celebration is that it is done while the trees are still looking dried up and dead.
However, the celebration is about what is to come. Celebrating the potential of a new day, a new season of blooming. The Almond Tree means promises being fulfilled, fruitfulness.
What is the significance of the Almond Tree in the scripture?
Jeremiah 1:9-12 New International Version (NIV)
9 Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”
11 The word of the Lord came to me: “What do you see, Jeremiah?”
“I see the branch of an almond tree,” I replied.
12 The Lord said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.”
We see the correlation between what we say and what we see.
The Lord wants you to say what you see. So what do you see? It is important to know that God will fill your mouth with those declarations. Your words have the power to create. Therefore what you speak is what you reap.
So we don’t speak what we see right now but we speak into the future. We speak our potential. We speak our future.
It is walking by faith and not by sight!
It is declaring a thing and seeing it spring forth. As you do this the Lord would say to you “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.” God fulfills His word and watches over it to perform it.
Ask Him to give you a vision of your future.
It is also the rainy season in Israel and this brings to mind this scripture…
Isaiah 55:10-12 New Living Translation (NLT)
10 “The rain and snow come down from the heavens
and stay on the ground to water the earth.
They cause the grain to grow,
producing seed for the farmer
and bread for the hungry.
11 It is the same with my word.
I send it out, and it always produces fruit.
It will accomplish all I want it to,
and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
12 You will live in joy and peace.
The mountains and hills will burst into song,
and the trees of the field will clap their hands!
As you declare the of God over your future and what you see, God will bring it to pass. This is a promise. His word doesn’t just dissipate into thin air it actually accomplishes something. Speak His word. As you do that you bring about change. Dead things come to life. What appears to be nothing at first turns into something.
Here’s a prayer for you…
Abba Father, open my eyes to see the wondrous things in Your Word. You said no eyes have seen and we can’t even perceive the things you have planned for those who love you. Well, I love You and today I ask you for a glimpse of that plan. Show me what you have in store for me in this season. Show me what you have in store for me now. Show me what you have in store for me in 2020. As you show it to me, fill my mouth with prophetic declarations and give me creative power in my speech to turn these dry bones into life. Streams of living water flowing through the wilderness of my life. Renew my hope in You and Your promises, in Jesus name, Amen!
As you remain close to the Lord in the secret place, through prayer, reading His word and declaring His Word over what He will show you, you will see all that you have said come to pass. Focus on the future and get ready to bloom.

Wow! What a burden, a test, and a testimony!!! What a blessing through a burden!! You battled a drought?!? To whom much is given…
Thank you for the ministry of your testimony. This encourages me more to pray for the Kingdom of God because there’s no doubt that we are at times afflicted or troubled with the same problems, burdened by the same yoke or struggling to past the same tests during the appointed seasons.
God bless you and God bless MOP.
Please mop,help me here,in some of the prayers you direct us to pray aloud what does it mean spiritually ,is there any effect if i say it silently in my heart?
The spoken word is the sword of the Spirit. It is a spiritual armor, Ephesians 6. This can’t be done in your heart.
Our land has been in drought, no grass that’s usual. But the trees were dying everywhere. The TRees in my garden died as we had to save the water for the livestock. Quite a while after the drought had been going on for some time, God had given me a word that rain would come in due season but all around everything was dry dusty and dieing.
It’s now, 2020. The last drought like this was 1936. But our livestock were alive and by Gods miracle looked not starving. Then it started to rain in our nation, everywhere but here. I,d hold to my word, then fall into doubt and stand up again and fall and so it went on for 5months. The dust when I washed the walls in each room of the house, was as dirty as the floors mop bucket. It’s hard to conceive how much dust a whirlywind (a small circular upwardly rotating dust storm anywhere from 3 feet to fifty feet) can land in through the windows of your house that are open as the house gasps for air in the heat. Ibegan to learn when I’d fall to say, Lord you promised not to leave me or forsake me help me walk this drought out as walked to feed the chooks each day saying it loudly. In this paragraph it’s one sentence in reality it was long hard hot dry and pushed my faith to be able to happy to people and not downhearted and despairing. Then in due season, Gods date where everything lined up rain fell. In mid Jan 2020 We received less than everyone and it settled the dust but nothing else. I was despairing but refusing to let go of that word and reminding God everyday. In late January, it rained again and little shoots appeared, if we didn’t get follow and it didn’t look like it, the weather bureau was saying maybe April, the heat would burn off those shoots.It hadn’t rained enough. The dams were no where near even 25%full, some still bone dry due to erratic falls…………… By now I’d given up the emotional roller coaster of hope and disappointment and just started to walk out each day looking for the little beauties, anything that would stop me from becoming as dry and barren inside my heart as the landscape(it was at the green drought stage -short green on a knifes edge hope, born out of despair but without follow up will die and plunge you further down as all hope is lost) I started speaking out a lot — Thanku Jesus for …….-Things like no bugs, not mowing the lawn, no mosquitos, washing dry in 10 minutes, hot water, food ,my bed, being sAfe, each family member, my faith, anything everything I could think of and repenting for me my family our nation. In early Feb out of a perfectly blue sky Suddenly out of no where came three storms in one night, it rained the dams are almost full, the grass is growing but … the miracle …..the dead trees …… the ones that were totally dead ready to be pulled out or knocked over , dead for months left in just in case they would come back, have suddenly in 10 days later sprung to life new leaves amongst the dead ones some have even flowered, it fills me with such awe of God. So many bible studies in here. I wonder sitting with God if it’s due season for our nations prodigal family trees to come home to Jesus, I pray for us all that it is. Most Holy Spirit let the fire of your word burn the truth you want to impart through my journey to the reader, bring miracles out of the dry and dead into them and their family tree. Into life and life in abundance in you. Breathe life and flourishing to dry dead situations.
Today I sit cup of tea in hand on the veranda on the eve of Valentine’s Day, appreciating the miracle green the miracle life the miracle of the kindness compassion and love of my friend Jesus as I failed time and time again, only to receive the gift of goodness compassion love and life. Repenting for my doubt and acutely aware of the kindness of his forgiveness.
Thanku Lord Shevat will always be in my heart and shared.
What a beautiful testimony! Thank you so much for sharing your testimony and the faithfulness of God when we hang on to His word. Blessings and I pray your nation will be indeed revived like the trees in Christ.
Thank you so much for always encouraging us with the word
We praise God for this ministry. It has been a great source of encouragement and helping me draw closer to God.
Yesterday I had a vision of flowers bursting out of what looked like a sack. It’s a fresh new beginning indeed.
Thank you so much. Came to post a request and read your note. I’m so encouraged.
Thank you again and again. May the Lord cause you to always be watered on every side as you do for others.
Thank you again.
Wow! Earlier this week, the Lord gave me a dream, where I was talking with an Elderly or a more older woman than I am, and She was telling me things about my future, talked about gods plans for me, at point in the dream, I was crying (bcuz of the present state of things, and it doesn’t look like it), and She said, why are you crying? With all that I can see ahead of you. And She gave me some other advice and counsel too. When She was done (seems she left), I was there waiting, and I heard a voice say, What are you waiting for? Oh you want to give your offering, and a young lady came with something like a bowl, and I dipped my hand into my pocket, brought out a note and gave it.
When I woke up, it was as though I was still in the dream, it was that real….And with this NOW Word showing us that it’s a Season of Blooming, for God has SEEN ahead, He knows the potential He has placed in us, and He is lifting our vision to SEE them, SPEAK or DECLARE them, and have them MANIFEST. It’s a Season of Promises getting fulfilled….O Rejoice and Celebrate the incoming blessings, provisions, promotions and miracles. Celebrate Your Potentials!
Dryness to Blossoming….Blossoming to Flourishing….
Thank You, Lord.
I had a vision of an almond branch, full of blooms, in January of last year. I wondered what it meant, as far as timing. I researched what it meant and read the scripture regarding it. Maybe this is God confirming that vision to me and reminding me He hasn’t forgotten and telling me that what I’m declaring is surely coming to pass! Praise God!
My pastor has been talking about “walking by faith and not by sight” and “believing in God against doubt” for a while now. So, this word is a NOW word! I have not been a stranger to decreeing and declaring God’s word! I am ready to see things BLOOM in this season/time! Thank you for this word!
