This is the prophetic word for May 2020 or Hebraic month of Iyyar 5780.
Some of you may be wondering why we always reference the Hebraic calendar in some of our prophetic words. Well, it is hard to deny the connection between what we see happening on a monthly basis and the Hebraic calendar. There are just too many things that show that God is still very much using that calendar and when we align ourselves to it we get a better picture of where we are and what we need to do to move forward.
I started really becoming interested in this when I reflected on the fact that God chose the nation of Israel. Jesus when He walked the earth was Jewish. Why Jewish? There has to be a reason for that. Also, so much of the bible and how we understand it becomes clearer when we know and understand that culture. The bible started with the Torah and we didn’t throw out the old testament when we got the new. No, we should all still be using the old testament.
While Jesus did come to fulfill a lot of the requirements, the most important one being salvation, and the fact that we no longer need to make
sacrifices, there are still many of the things in the old testament that we should still be doing. They were implemented by God and He specifically says I want us to continue doing them, did you know that? Yes, some things are still in play but most churches don’t talk or teach on them.
Where in the bible did it tell us to abolish the Hebraic Calendar and move over to the Gregorian? It never says that. We just chose to go in that direction. So, you must know that there are also other things that got tossed out that never should’ve been. If we are grafted in as it says in Romans 11 shouldn’t we (Christians) be just as successful as the Jews are today? But still, we are not. Why is that? Because we’ve discarded some things that we shouldn’t have. Their success is based on following certain principles that we abolished.
Look at this…
Leviticus 11:13-19 New International Version (NIV)
13 “‘These are the birds you are to regard as unclean and not eat because they are unclean: the eagle, the vulture, the black vulture, 14 the red kite, any kind of black kite, 15 any kind of raven, 16 the horned owl, the screech owl, the gull, any kind of hawk, 17 the little owl, the cormorant, the great owl, 18 the white owl, the desert owl, the osprey, 19 the stork, any kind of heron, the hoopoe and the bat.
And here it is that we have a virus that spreads from eating bats! Read the entire Leviticus 11 to find other things that God said we shouldn’t be eating that. Don’t be surprised if you find that you actually eat some of the things He said not to eat. There has to be a reason He told us not to eat it. Think about it! They’ve been eating bats for a long time but then one day…. Yeah, we often get away with doing something for quite sometime but then one day…
Anyhoo, this word isn’t even about this but I just felt led to go there and explain why we go back and look at the old testament and the Hebraic Calendar to do the monthly word. Somebody needed to hear this part.
Exodus 12:17 New King James Version (NKJV)
17 So you shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I will have brought your armies out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations as an everlasting ordinance.
On to the prophetic word…
Iyyar runs from April 25th – May 23rd. This month is signified by letter vav which looks like a pin and it is said that this pin connects the month before to the month after. Like how train cars are individual but one connects to another with a pin.
So the month before was Nisan (when the Israelites left Egypt) is bring connected to Sivan (when the Torah was given) by the pin (Iyyar).
So Iyyar is the connecting month between deliverance and revelation. We are going from deliverance to revelation.
God is about to reveal something to you concerning your future. This is what you are stepping into an understanding of your next steps into your future.
Did you know that prior to the Torah being given the “word” was only spoken? Isn’t that interesting? Up until this time Israel only spoke to each other about what God said there was nothing written down. Have you ever played the game called “Chinese telephone”? In this game you form a chain and you whisper something into the ear of the person next to you. That person then whispers into the ear of the next person what you told them. The message goes around until it gets to the last person. Inevitably at the end of the chain the message is never the same as the original message.
I guess God knew this Chinese telephone game before we did, hence He had to make sure the word was written! LOL
Otherwise, can you imagine how misconstrued things would get? Even so, we have different interpretations and versions! Did God really say not to eat shrimp? Yes! It is written in Leviticus 11!
So, you need to write down the revelation that God is about to show you about your life. Your destiny. Your purpose. It is coming.
There are many many things that are significant about Iyyar but there is one thing that God brought to my attention for this word.
Did you know that there are actually 2 Passovers? Yes, there’s the first Pesach that happened April 8 – 16th. It’s one week and during that time the Feast of Unleaven Bread is Celebrated and as a part of that there is the Passover Seder. Then there is Pesach Sheni which is the 2nd Passover which is celebrated on 14 Iyyar or May 7-8th which is exactly one month later. On Pesach Sheni it is only the Seder that is celebrated and not the entire 7 days. This is God’s “do over” it is the second chance give for those who didn’t celebrate the 1st Passover. They were unclean and unprepared to do the 1st Passover so He gives them a second chance to enter in.
Do you think it is just a coincidence that we are all on lock down for the 1st Passover where most of us were not able to celebrate the 1st because of the uncleanness (virus) and now we are entering a period when they are easing the lock down and people are going to be out and about for the 2nd Passover? I don’t think that’s a coincidence. It’s following exactly what God prescribed way back then. The same thing! God’s Timing.
Again, there are many things to say about Iyyar but this is the point He highlighted to me and asked me to share with you. It’s your Second Chance. Read Numbers 9:1-14 to get the biblical context of Peshach Sheni.
The Lord is saying that many of you were just not ready to step into what He had for you. You were not ready for the revelation that He is about to give you concerning your future. You were not ready because you are too distracted and caught up in things that you shouldn’t have been. Connected to the wrong things and wrong people. Now that He has your undivided attention, He can finally get through to you. He’s giving you another chance to focus and do what He has called you to do.
This part of the word is not for everyone but you will know when it is you…
Let me put it bluntly, when you go back to church and you are sitting there, the scales have now been removed from your eyes. You are going to see things that you may have overlooked or excused before. He may even pull the covers back and show you things that you didn’t even know was happening. Things that you were OK with in the past, won’t be OK for you today. You are going to feel like a fish out of water. Don’t panic. He will give you instructions on what He wants you to do and where you need to go. You will realize you can’t go back to that. Things changed. You changed.
Not all of us will have this experience because some are already planted where we should be. The prophetic word next week is going to give more clarity on this.
All of us will be released into this at different times. We are not on the same time table. When He releases you to go you have to remember what you learnt during this time. You can’t go back to “church as usual”. Things are different and while it is going to feel really uncomfortable only the Lord can guide you on where you should be and what you should be doing.
He’s giving all of us a Second Chance to get it right. We all got shifted into the new church era whether we like it or not. There was a worldwide unplugging. A disconnection. A recalibration. We didn’t want to change so He had to change us. We didn’t want to leave so He had to make us leave.
Did He create the virus? No. But what the enemy meant for evil God turns to good! He doesn’t have to start it but He can use the evil of man for His purposes. Absolutely nothing is wasted, everything gets used for His purposes and His glory in the end.
He’s using it to shift the church to where the church needs to be.
Finally, as I was writing this what came to mind was a dream I had and wrote about back in October 2018. I haven’t read it since then and I just went back to reread it today. All I can say is, it is so accurate with what is happening now. I wrote it for the 2019 prophetic word but I also said that I felt it was a word for the next 7 – 10 years. Well, it’s here! All the instructions are already written there in the 23 points I gave in the interpretation of the dream Disgruntled Spiritually Fat People/Accessing the Vault
I want you to take a moment now, before you leave this page and pray for all the people worldwide that are hungry. Not every country has services from the government that send checks to make up for lost income. No, some people will starve because of the lock down. No job, or no way to get out and sell something means they have no food for their families. I could write a prayer but I felt led to ask you to pray in your own words for these people. This is important just take the time now to pray for them.
