This particular time during the Hebrew calendar carries as many names as it does meanings. It is important to be able to glean from the fields of understanding concerning this hour. So you will hear The Feast of Trumpets, “the head of the year”, or Rosh Hashanah. Although biblically speaking it is not referred to as the beginning of the year. My emphasis on this historic time marker of 5778 this year will be remembered by the sounding of the TRUMPETS.
Leviticus 23:23-25 “…Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord…’”
Numbers 10:1-2 “…And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Make two silver trumpets for yourself; you shall make them of hammered work; you shall use them for calling the congregation and for directing the movement of the camps….”
Looking into this coming 5778 with eyes of understanding I begin to see a release of God’s trumpets vocally, spiritually, and radically. From the sounding of the shofar to a clarion call by the literal voice of many waters the Lord God Most High is speaking to the people. For His sound will be echoing throughout the land. All will hear and many will come out from wherever they are and respond to it’s sound. The Lord will speak through His prophets, through signs, wonders and miracles. He will speak through warnings and correction. He will sound through the repentant cries of His intercessors. Even His Shed Blood will sound a cry out with a redemptive plan for His people. These sounds will come and quake through the land. Shaking through old paradigms of thinking that had bound a people. Great change will come about in the land because the Lord himself has spoken it.
Amos 3:6-7 (KJV) “Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it? Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”
Amos 3:6-7 (NLT) When the ram’s horn blows a warning, shouldn’t the people be alarmed? Does disaster come to a city, unless the Lord has planned it? 7 Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets.”
We are in the season where the sounding of the alarm and the releasing of the mandates of heaven will be revealed. It will shape a destiny of nations who have yet to be changed by the seriousness of the time that has already occurred. It will also carry an impetus by which a people shall ARISE in this hour to bring forth the necessary answers that will be needed to live out that mandate.
We have found that despite God’s word, teaching, and heart, man has decided to live out his desires over God’s desires. As a result, the enemy of their souls has risen up to overtake their land and even hold them captive beyond their ability to break free. However, we can rejoice in the fact also throughout His word we would see The Lord raise up a people and a standard through his servants of Apostles, Prophets, and Priesthood to begin to quell and alleviate the evil work and re-establish the Kingdom of Heaven in the region.
We are about to witness some of these things in ways that would amaze us. In the last 3-4 months, I began to receive visitations that the Lord begin to show me concerning these trumpet sounds. It began low and almost inaudible then grew to a high pitch sound of awakening. I could not even articulate what I saw nor could I fully explain what I was seeing. So I will attempt to extract a few pages from the volumes of what I begin to see as it was revealed to me.
August 21st Varying levels of Darkness and Light
When I was in prayer concerning the solar eclipse as the brilliance of the light pierced throughout the corners of the darkness the Lord begin to show me varying levels of light being covered by darkness. He showed me how we will be able to maneuver and discern in the darkness by what we learned in the light of His glorious presence, and as we come through the darkness a greater light would be unveiled afterward. Many thought that being in or studying the darkness would give them the power to discern things shrouded in darkness, but that is a deception that will put us in a position to be overwhelmed by the enemy.
Only the light can impart to us the ability to discern and perceive things done in the dark. I saw a series of visions of how through scripture light has been revealed to us, and how the disciples navigated through the dark nights and storms that the Lord guided them through. We will see a deep movement of the Lord that will fill our hearts with revelation that will carry us through the next seven years to come. As the Messiah co-navigates us our lives will take on a new course of dominion that we have talked about walking in but we will possess in new revelatory ways. We will witness great prophetic visuals just like the eclipse itself, while making it over to the new land of understanding the ways of the Lord.
Understanding that walking in the light in our relationship with Him would help us to overcome through some of the greatest storms approaching. This light which will bring forth order, divine alignment and a reordering of the understanding His ways. He began to show me the importance in guarding our hearts and learning how to walk in temperance. So that our lack of self-control and emotions doesn’t distract us, while leaving us vulnerable to serious attacks from the enemy. (Read Proverbs 25:28) I began to see that division was an outward attack of darkness to keep us in confusion and to cause us to lose time instead of being directed by the light.
It is the order of heaven that we walk in a new way as we step over into 5778. It is the shedding of carnality and the lies of error so that we may walk in the truth of His word. We will become the Sons of God upon this earth that are being birthed in this hour. Skillful mid-wives prevailing in prayer will assist in this process. The birthing of a changed people of purpose will emerge in this time ready to advance in Kingdom building. As I was on a flight, I saw a great light in a vision coming from the sun but on the earth the darkness was still present. The Lord spoke and said even though darkness was upon the earth the light was emerging as the Sons were being birthed. In the heavens, we had entered a new day but upon the earth it was just beginning to catch up with what had already begun in the heavens.
It is in the cries of repentance prayer and the travailing in birth that our lives will transition from carnality into a growth of maturity in the image of Jesus Christ. The Lord in his great wisdom has placed in us answers to situations and dilemmas that will occur. We will be a part of the fail-safe system that will be the building and triumphing of a glorious work. It is important to see this that this is a part of an on-going process by which this will occur as the current foundations are shaking.
So, we begin to see that the perfecting process of 5777 is an on-going one and it will lay the ground work for greater things to be done in the coming years leading up to 5779 and even going into 5780. The Sons of God that were spoken of in John chapter one is moving forward. What we will see looks allot like Ezekiel Chapter 1 & 10 which shows us the images of God himself being formed in our lives in ways we will know and do great exploits.
There Will Be War
He spoke to me clearly and said that there will be revival before war, during war and after war and that the war would be short-lived. The Lord unveiled several things to me and “that the spiritual war was not only inevitable, but has been ongoing.“ We have been living out the scripture that says: 1 John 3:18 (KJV) “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:2 “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.”
We are yet becoming and as we grow and mature into image of Jesus Christ, we will fight and contend against that which is not of him. We are changing, every growing, and transitioning into who we are to become. The Lord took me to the revelation of the understanding of the woman in Revelation Chapter 12 which is a moedim (an appointed time, sign in the heavens). Here we are standing at the door of another prophetic marker. Revelation 12:1-7. Here we see a system in the government of earthly things opposing to destroy the government of Godly things. So as the Sons of God are being birthed forth the dragon is waiting to devour. This speaks of a spiritual war to come.
Three Prophetic Markers
So in the span of 33 days we see three prophetic markers Solar Eclipse August 21st 2017 which was also the first day of Elul (in Israel), the Feast of Trumpets September 20th-22nd 2017 and another sign in the Heavens Sept 23rd 2017. In biblical numeric’s the number 33 has so many significant features which we have all heard of 33 years of Jesus Christ life upon the earth, 33 also represents the promises of God. Other meanings are: the 33 times that Noah was mentioned, on the 33rd time Noah was mentioned it contained the promise of God. The 33 times that Abram’s name is mentioned the Son of promise was born on the 33rd time. David ruled over a united Israel for 33 years. There are promises within us that have yet to be fulfilled.
A Daniel Company of intercession HUBS
The first thing I need to briefly define what is a HUB. A HUB is a cluster of ministries who come together to better fullfil Kingdom Directives. Two keys words are “Yoked” and “Spiritual Synergy.” In this hour, there will be a raising up of a Daniel company that will move forth as the Lord’s army. It was being revealed to Daniel that he was in the season of the words of Jeremiah (70 weeks) when he positioned himself in prayer and fasting. So that He might be able to discern what the Lord was bringing forth in that time. (Daniel 9:2, Jeremiah 29:10). That positioning prepared and released strategies of the Lord and His angelic host who were contending in the heavenly realm.
It has been revealed to me that we have approached an hour where intercession HUBS will not only be formed but work together as a NET to usher in the harvest of souls coming into the Kingdom. There will be convergence of man with angelic assistance who will walk as one in passionate prayers of repentance to release a sound. The Trumpet will sound to release Anna’s, Esther’s, and Deborah’s to pray. There will also be an Apostolic & Prophetic Troop of Issachar People to guide them through the coming years.
We will see a fearless group of millennials who will face the enemy with a sling shot of promise and five smooth stones of glory. We will also see a gathering of nations of people who will be willing to prevail in prayer. Let me say this there are very few who know the real nature of the enemy within the church, the enemy outside the church, and the demonic nature of the two. There will be those who will carry the likes of Praying Hyde & Rees Howells intercessors that will track, trace, and destroy enemy strongholds.
Prayer, intercession, Watchmen on the Wall
One of the most powerful strategy in this hour is walking in the power of prayer and the birthing of repentance and how much danger would be quelled and averted through it. Prayers, intercession, and the cries of repentance for sins of our nations will produce strategies that reverse and lend strength in times when the enemies attack will seem its strongest. The strongest trumpet will come from the Captain of the Lord of Host carrying strong Angelic help from every direction. By decree and declaration being laid upon the lives of God's people carried by the directives of God’s word, we will advance not just defensively going through our day but by kingdom implementation knowing who we are and what we possess as well as understanding what we should be doing. So, we don’t just approach the day and hope everything works well but beginning to embrace our day making whatever necessary adjustments along the way. Setting things in order revealed to us in prayer and utilizing the tools that we have been equipped with to accomplishing effective stewardship.
Views from the Field
In my time before the Lord in prayer concerning Shavuot I received several visitations where I literally appeared in the field. The Lord said that it was the place that we, the body of Christ were the first-fruits of that harvest season. He unveiled that we were the body of Christ transitioning into the Bride of Christ. In that He was also taking us through the winnowing process by fire baptism removing the chaff off of our lives so that we could go out and gather the harvest. (Matthew 3:11-12) He spoke of how we as a type of Ruth who by our obedience to His will would glean in the fields. Only to become the owner of the fields where we worked. We are such a people. Each month more and more revelation began to unfold as He guided me through the field instructing on how we can learn from the word of God in the field. He walked me through the field and explained that this is the season to bring souls into the kingdom.
He unveiled how in this hour of our lives fulfilling our purpose will bring healing and wholeness to a people broken by the circumstances in the field. All roads lead to the field, say no more 4 months for the harvest has come and the fields are white unto harvest. In the month of Elul the Lord is in the field and so are we. As we approach 5778 in Tishrei we hear the trumpets sounding in the distance leading and guiding us. . . .
As we walk into this new Hebrew year we ask that you prayerfully consider sowing a seed as we move forward in this field together. Thank you ahead of time. We need and appreciate you and we pray that you receive every promise God has spoken over your life.
