This is the prophetic word for the month of Adar and March 2020. On the Hebraic calendar Adar is February 26th to March 25th.
It is a short and sweet word. I’ve bolded all the things you need to sit with and meditate on to know how to apply this to your own situation.
The fascinating thing about the word of God is that every time you read a scripture you can get something completely different from it. God can highlight one thing to one person and something completely different to another.
To understand this month we have to look at what is outlined in the bible for the month of Adar. It is mentioned in the book of Esther. So, this month you should read the book of Esther to get a better understanding and perhaps God will outline even more to you that we have written here. It is not when she enters the palace but when she comes up against the opposition of Haman and the possibility of the annihilation of the Jewish people. So read, Esther 3 through 9.
Here are a few points on this text:
1)When Haman plotted to kill the Jews did you know that He did the planning for a whole year? Put yourself in the story and
imagine what it would feel like if you were Jewish waiting for a year to die. As the months ticked by I’m sure they all had migraine headaches! What a horrible feeling it must’ve been to be notified that you and your entire family will die on a specific date.
2)He chose a specific date when all of them would die which is 13th of Adar.
3)He had no clue that Esther was Jewish
4)She went on a fast for 3 days, no food and no water. This is known as a dry fast which is for deliverance and turnarounds. Daniel fasts are for wisdom, revelation and understanding. Not all fasts are the same and you need to understand which ones are needed for own situation.
5)Esther had to accurately discern the timing of her actions. When to speak, how to speak, what to speak.
We can take something that is right and turn it completely wrong by moving outside of the timing of God.
Many times we can believe that we missed God or didn’t hear correctly when the real problem is that it was a timing issue.
6)Esther waited until the end of her 3 day fast, approached the King, told the King she wanted to host a banquet, then told him she wanted to host another banquet before she actually made her request. If she told him the first time he told her to ask for what she wanted the timing would have been wrong. Why? Because it wasn’t until the night before the 2nd banquet that the Lord brought it to the King’s attention that he was to honor Mordecai.
This tells me that Esther was discerning the timing perfectly so that she knew when to speak. Note, it wasn’t when the King said she could speak that she spoke but rather when God said it. You see God had to clear the way for her before she opened her mouth.
Please catch that.
Discern your timing.
I know some of you would love to jump into what the Lord has for you right now but there are things that need to be in place before
things line up exactly as the Lord told you they would. And, sometimes even though you already know what the outcome will be…you still need to wait.
I’ve said to the Lord before “I’m not sure which one is worse, not knowing where I’m going and what comes next or having to wait for what I already know is going to happen” Either way, you can’t escape the waiting.
So what happened in the end? The entire plot of the enemy backfired. This is why we must never salivate at the demise of our enemies. Leave them to God. If you sit and plot how you are going to destroy others, I don’t care how bad they are, it means you have a spirit of Haman. Unforgiveness. Hatred. Bitterness. Anger. Murder. Sometimes we can end up hating our “Haman” just a little too much! God will never move on our behalf when we harbor this kind of spirit. There’s a prayer for you at the end if this part resonates with you.
Funny enough! The Jews waited for another year for the laws to be put in place where they could annihilate anyone that came against them. Were they plotting this? No. It wasn’t their intent, it was God’s! Again, in the month of Adar one year later. On the 13th and 14th they killed their enemies and then on the 15th they rested and celebrated their victories.
What a difference a year can make!!
So here’s the prayer for you:
Holy Spirit, breath upon me so that I may accurately discern the timing of all the promises and prophetic words that have been spoken over my life. Help me to understand it. Give me the grace and strength I need to wait patiently upon the Lord. Show me what I need to do in this season of preparation and waiting. I thank you that not one of your promises shall fall to the ground because they are Yes and Amen! When you send forth your word it shall not return void but will accomplish everything it was sent forth to do. I pray even now you would quicken my spirit with a renewed hope in your promises. I trust you to handle all of my enemies in your timing because they are not fighting against my destiny but against Yours, in Jesus name, Amen.
This is a prayer for those who may be having trouble letting go of people who hurt them:
Father God, I give you my heart and I ask you to heal the pain, hurt, woundedness and trauma I have suffered at the hands of _______. I pray Lord that you would work Your forgiveness through me. By Your Holy Spirit forgive them through me. I release them into Your hands today and I wait for You to do what You know is best in this situation. I bind up the spirit of hatred, I bind up the spirit of murder, I bind up the spirit of anger, I bind up strife and I cast them all out in the name of Jesus. I loose the peace of God in my life. I loose Your love in life. I loose Your forgiveness in my life. I repent for holding on to these feelings for so long. Please forgive me and release me from the bondage they have brought to me. I thank you the way is now clear for me to discern Your timing for the promises You have for my life, in Jesus name, Amen.
