Jubilee

Rosh Hashanah -Faith Practices and Realities of the Kingdom

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comWe are entering into a very interesting week. There has been A LOT of discussion about the Revelation 12 sign, the end of the age, and the rapture in Christian circles of late. But I’m not sure about it all. What I am sure about is that we, as the church, are stepping into a new season. There is something arising. It is the purposes and the power of THE CHURCH!  Hallelujah!

Over the next few weeks, I want to share the significance of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur in our modern life and in our Christin faith. God’s timeline is not based upon the Gregorian calendar. What is fascinating to me is that year after year, I experience a significant series of events in September, again in October and again in November. These events are hugely impactful to my personal life and faith. And as I began to share my experiences of this season with others, I realized others are also experiencing significant changes in this season, year-after-year.

It appears to me that most of us are in a giant season of transition. And most of us struggle walking through transitions well.

Anyone? If this is true for you, leave me a note in the comments that you are in a transition and tell me briefly what is changing or closing out in your life. I think it will be fascinating to see what season is closing out in your life in the month of September. The month of Rosh Hashanah.

Rosh Hashanah begins, Wednesday evening, September 20th and ends Friday evening, September 22, 2017. Then we enter a 10-day period leading up to Yom Kippur. I will explain more as the days pass. I know in the past few years we have fasted together in this season for breakthrough together as a community. I’m not going to lead a community fast this week as I am traveling Thursday-Sunday. But, I ask you to pray and ask the Lord if He is calling you to fast this week to press in for your breakthrough. I know there are many of you who need to fast for this very reason.

These holidays are highly significant in any year but I feel a tension and an excitement over this year, specifically.

So, stay tuned and hang on because I’m going to share some thoughts that will positively take you in prayer to the Throne Room to inquire of God about what He has prepared for you in this season. And His plans will blow your mind. He always blows mine. And we are also going to look at what the enemy is doing to bring destruction during this season. And more importantly, the tools God gave me last week to completely decimate the devils works.

Can I shout HALLELUJAH again?

Say it with me now OUT LOUD: HALLELUJAH!

I love you. Let me know what transition you are facing and what is closing out in this month. There is a purpose in asking. I’ll share with you later.

Have a fantastic week! Shalom! And Happy New Year!

Today, I will pray with purpose, power and belief, using the Word with conviction, confidence and finally with unfailing courage. I will not relent or give up or give in. I will stand for goodness, honesty, integrity, and truth. I will love lavishly and forgive easily. I will offer hope and a hand to those who I can help, and I will always and forever remain loyally in love with my Jesus.

This is my high and holy calling, and I will believe nothing less. In the name of Jesus. Amen and Hallelujah!!!

NOOOOOO, NOT THAT! But It Turned out SO Good!

My friends,

Walking through a season of warfare is NOT fun. However, I’ve arrived now at the Jordan River and am about to cross into the Promised Land. I don't fully comprehend how I know this but I sense God is changing things within the spiritual realm as I am preparing to step into a year of Jubilee. I share more about Jubilee at Spiritually Unequal Marriage. You can read that post series, click here to start.

But for me personally, I will pick up my story where I left you. White knuckled, clinging to God’s promises in His Word. It was at this point that I realized that God wanted me to just --- rest. ARGH!!! I don’t do – rest- well. I’m a do-er, kind-a-girl!

But I’m also learning obedience and so I rest. I stopped praying about new writing projects. I rested from church assignments, I stopped taking on any extra writing/speaking work and I rest. And now as we approach the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, I’ve come to learn that this entire year, 2014 has been the year of the Shmita. Say what? This entire year, is a year of rest. The 49th year according to God’s Word in Leviticus. It is a year of rest leading into the year of Jubilee.

But guess what I’ve learned in the resting? The promises of the Lord are being prepared. I’ve watched the Lord start to put people, events and circumstances into place that will come to full fruition within the next 6-8 weeks. I kid you not.

Let me give you an example. I’ve been praying for years. I mean years about getting my physical body back into shape. I’ve begged God. I’ve prayed for healing so many, many years. I’ve dieted and fasted and read a million books about healthy eating and creating a healthy life-style. To no avail. However, FINALLY in September I’m starting at a gym and with a new nutrition plan with an accountability partner. This is the only way I will succeed. And I can tell you that, YES, I will succeed. I’m on fire about this new plan and gym. My new training and the program begins, now get this, September 14. I didn’t even realize the date when I was working to get this all set up two months back.

I’ve also received some direction for my future writing. And another God set up is that my son and his wife are moving back to Las Vegas. This is all for the good for them and for us. These are all set ups for what God is preparing for me in the months of Jubilee.

I will tell you what I'm sensing the Jubilee year will hold for me personally, in my next post. And to discover what I believe Jubilee will hold for you, join the crowd reading the series at SUM.

For now, share with me what promise you have been praying into for a long time. I will pray along with you and let’s ask the Lord if it is destined for the redemption and restoration of Jubilee. I know that I will ask the Lord for specific insight and I will respond to you!

I love you my friends. It’s the greatest time to be alive since Jesus walked among us!!! Hallelujah!
