"Expect Double Glory in Hebrew Year 5782"
Upcoming Biblical Feasts
The month of Tishrei is the first month of the civil calendar year and the
seventh month of the ecclesiastical year on the Hebrew calendar. It is also called the Head of the Year or the "month of beginning." It started on Monday, September 6th at sundown and began with a celebration called Rosh Hashanah or Feast of Trumpets. It signified
the beginning of Hebrew New Year 5782, which means 5,782 years since the creation of Adam and Eve.
Tishrei is a Hebrew month in which three feasts take place. These are the Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement
and Feast of Tabernacles. On Rosh Hashanah, the first day of Tishrei, the Ten Days of Awe began which go until Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. The 10 Days of Awe are days of repentance, prayer, fasting and cleansing to prepare one's heart for the Day of
Atonement which starts Wednesday, September 15th at sundown until Thursday, September 16th at sundown and is the highest holy day of the year to the Jews. It is a day we, who believe in Jesus as Messiah, remember that He sprinkled His Blood on the mercy seat
in the heavenly tabernacle.
This is followed by the third feast, which is the Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkot, which begins sundown on Monday, September 20th to sundown on Monday, September 27th. This feast
is highlighted for the Jews as they remember building booths or shelters when the Lord called them to live in the wilderness. For those who believe in Jesus, we remember that Jesus tabernacles among us and is our provider. Each feast is a recognized, appointed
time set aside by God where we come to meet Him.
Grace, Perfection, New Beginnings and Double Portion
God has given me a special word for the
Hebrew year 5782 that I want to share with you. The numbers 5-7-8-2 are Biblical numbers that mean grace, perfection, new beginnings and double portion. God has shared with me that this year we're going to see double glory come into the earth. Scripture tells
us, "For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea" (Habakkuk 2:14 KJV).
The Hebrew word "knowledge" is "da'ath" which is broken down to the word
"yada." Yada means, to know as in seeing, as in recognition through a variety of senses, as in observation and care, and even friend, famous, kinsfolk or kinsman. We all know a Kinsman Redeemer who gave His life that we might live – that is Jesus Christ,
our Lord and Savior. In other words, when the earth is going to be filled, it's going to be filled to fullness with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord which comes from a knowledge of Jesus, as our Redeemer. He is the One who has saved us from our sins
and reconciled us to relationship with the Father by His shed Blood on the Cross.
That word "glory" in the Hebrew is the word "kabod," which means, the weighty presence of God, splendor, and honor. This
is broken down to the word "kabad" which means, weighty in a good sense, numerous, rich, honorable, abounding as in reference to nobles or nobility. We will know the fullness of our Kinsman Redeemer's weighty presence, His splendor and majesty as we come to
know His nobility and bow to it in the earth realm.
As Habakkuk 2:14 continues it says, "... as the waters cover the sea." This means we will know His splendor and majesty as vast as the waters cover the
sea. That word "sea" in the Hebrew is the word "yam" which means, to roar, as a noisy surf. In Florida, where I am from, we have wide beaches on both coasts of the state. Have you ever stood on the sand and looked to the far right or far left of where you
are standing and noticed how far the beach goes and how much water is ready to rush in and pound the sand? When the waters rise, they flood the sand, and as each wave hits the sand a roar is let out by the noisy surf. The waters fill to overflowing.
Hear the Mighty Roar of the Lord
This year in 5782, I believe the Lord is filling the earth with His glory and God is sending a roar on the earth that will be
likened to a noisy surf hitting the sand. This is for those who have ears to hear. A mighty sound of the glory of the King of kings is coming forth. His nobility and majesty will be experienced by us in a greater way.
Yes, the earth is in a desperate place and our culture is weak and overrun, but we will grow in the knowledge of our Kinsman Redeemer, and all He has done, so we can walk in double glory in 5782. We have seen some glory in the earth, but I believe
as the people of God really connect with His heart for them, no matter their circumstances, they will step into a greater knowledge of the Lord and it will become a roar.
I want to pray for you, because
we're entering into this Hebrew New Year of 5782: May you receive in this new year a double portion of grace, perfection, new beginnings, and double portion of every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies. May a double portion of His spirit and a double portion
of His glory come upon you so that you will be equipped to be a glory carrier into the earth.
As we, the Church, become knowledgeable in these truths and as we grab ahold in our senses, the reality of
the Lord being our Kinsmen Redeemer, we will begin to cover the earth with His glory as the waters cover the sea. We will roar with a sound that comes from all of us together, united in His glory covering the earth.
Double glory is coming in 5782. God is making a way! He has prepared your heart to receive more and more of Him. Please share this good news with some people who need to hear it. Remember, Christ in you is the hope of glory in the earth today—double
glory is coming!
