"The color blue, the Sons of Issachar,
and the Holy Spirit”
By Deborah Waldron Fry, et al
Early this morning
I was praying for a family member. Sometimes we feel helpless and forget that we have a Helper, an Advocate who intercedes with us as we pray. We need reminded sometimes, amen? I know I do. LOL. So after falling back asleep, and then upon waking up today,
I had a vision. It was a Man all dressed in BLUE and I knew it was the Holy Spirit.
I studied the word blue in the Hebrew and it is amazing.
The word "stripes" in Isaiah 53:5 and "blueness" in Proverbs 20:30 are the same word. So it is not surprising that BLUE would represent the finished work of the Cross and the Holy Spirit sent to us!
Also, the High Priest in the Old Testament wears an outer robe of BLUE and we know that Jesus is our High Priest, our one and only Mediator. So I believe Father was reminding
us that He is with us. He has sent His Spirit to dwell IN us and intercede with us and for us and through us. He is not a faceless or bodiless force or a dove, but He is the ALL POWERFUL Third Person of the Godhead. So many times we feel helpless, when God
Himself has come to dwell in us and empower us! Wow!
And I felt Him also saying to remember that when we do not know
how to pray, He will pray through us. He will perfect our prayers. How glorious is that! You are mightier than you think, Child of God! God Himself is praying WITH YOU! Romans 8:26
"In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know how we ought to pray, but the SPIRIT HIMSELF INTERCEDES FOR US with groans too deep for words." Where two or more agree on earth as touching anything that they ask, it shall be
done by our Father in heaven. (Matthew 18:19) You and the Holy Spirit are TWO together!! Amen??
And one last thing. As I was studying today, I read where the Tribe
of Issachar is represented on the High Priest's breastplate by the SAPPHIRE, the same blue stone as the floor of the Throneroom! I believe that those with the Holy Spirit are the Sons and Daughters of Issachar today, for the Spirit is revealing the deep things
of God and things to come, and we are those who have an understanding of the times that can only be known by the Spirit dwelling in us! 1 Chronicles 12:32 " Of the sons of Issachar WHO HAD UNDERSTANDING OF THE
TIMES, to know what Israel ought to do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their command.”
"Beloved. Do not ever think your prayers
are not heard or that they are not "good enough." For your God is with you and IN you! I am with you always. I am your Mediator and Intercessor. I am your Helper and your Advocate. I am He who stands alongside of you and holds your hand. Once and for all time,
your High Priest and Forerunner has torn down the division that separated God and man. I have made a way where there seemed to be no way. You have come into the Inner Courts by the Blood of the Lamb.
"Come BOLDLY before the Throne of Grace in your time of need. Come boldly to the Sapphire Throne, My Child! You wear My priestly
garments and My robe of salvation. You are a king and a priest unto Me. To you it is given to know and understand the times and the seasons through the Spirit. Spiritual things can only be understood spiritually. You have come through the Veil to the Inner
Sanctum where all Mysteries are revealed.
"None of the rulers of this age understood what you understand, My Child.
For if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory. So, as it is written: “ No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.” But I am revealing these things to you by the Spirit,
for the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
"And you, My Child, shall be given an understanding
of the times, that you would no longer let fear enter your heart but you will know that your Victory is assured. I am able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that you ask or think, according to the POWER working in you! Is anything impossible for your
God? No, Beloved. The Spirit helps you in your weakness. For when you do not know how to pray, the Spirit Himself intercedes for you with groans too deep for words.
"Now is the time for My kings and priests, My Sons and Daughters of Issachar to come forth in all of My Glory, to reveal the Risen One who was dead but is ALIVE forevermore. That you would pray for others, command demons to leave,
heal the sick and raise the dead. For, behold, I have given you My Authority. And you shall prophecy by the Breath of God, and give Rhema words that many should be blessed.
"This is the Hidden Wisdom given to you through the Spirit. As it is written,"The knowledge of the Glory of God shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea." Arise and shine, My king and priest.
Do not forget who you are! The prayers of a righteous man avails much! Through you, Mysteries shall be revealed and the Spirit shall give you wisdom and understanding and they shall see their Savior. For the time of the end of the age of Grace is near and
by My Spirit, you shall bring many out of the kingdom of darkness into My Marvelous Light!”
The color BLUE, according to many Bible scholars, represents Heaven. The color blue in the Bible has also been described by scholars as denoting the HOLY SPIRIT. (womenofnoble character) It also describes the stripes of Jesus
and the healing received from them! (Biblehub)
BLUE represents all things heavenly or having authority. The priest’s outer robe being entirely BLUE emphasized
the fact that the priest’s authority came from God in heaven. (whatchristrianswanttoknow)
BLUE is also the bible
color associated with laws and commandments. In order for Jesus to save His people from their sins it was necessary that He first keep the laws and prophecies of God perfectly: Matt. 5:17-18 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I
am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." Jesus fulfilled the law and the prophets perfectly. (dentonpbc)
The SAPPHIRE BLUE stone and Issachar. The Sapphire in the High Priest's Breastplate represented the tribe of Issachar, the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times!
and they saw the
God of Israel. And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of SAPPHIRE STONE, and it was like the very heavens in its clarity.
1 Chronicles 12:32
Of the sons of Issachar WHO HAD UNDERSTANDING OF THE TIMES, to know what Israel ought to do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their command;
"BLUENESS" also translated STRIPES in Isaiah 53:5 : Strong's Hebrew 2250: 1)
bruise, stripe, wound, blow
—literally, "joining," the process of uniting the edges of a wound. (Jamieson Commentary)
Same Hebrew word used in both the following verses!
Proverbs 20:30 The BLUENESS of a
wound cleanseth away evil: so do stripes the inward parts of the belly.
Isaiah 53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the
chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes (blueness!) we are healed.
And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate to be with you forever— 17the Spirit of truth. The
world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and will be in you.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have told you.
However, when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak
what He hears, and He will declare to you what is to come. 14 He will glorify Me by taking from what is Mine and disclosing it to you.
“Over the table of the BREAD OF THE PRESENCE they shall also spread a CLOTH OF BLUE and put on it the dishes and the pans and the sacrificial bowls
and the jars for the drink offering, and the continual BREAD shall be on it. (Jesus is the Bread come down from heaven, the BREAD OF LIFE)
Ex. 28:31, 32
"And thou shalt make the robe of the ephod all of BLUE. And there shall be an hole in the top of it, in the midst thereof: it shall have a
binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it were the hole of an habergeon, that it be not rent.”
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus our forerunner has entered
on our behalf. He has become a HIGH PRIEST forever in the order of Melchizedek.
Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful HIGH PRIEST in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for
the sins of the people.
Therefore, since we have a great HIGH PRIEST who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we profess. 15 For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who
was tempted in every way that we are, yet was without sin.…
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know how we ought to pray, but the SPIRIT HIMSELF INTERCEDES FOR US with groans too deep for words. 27And He
who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit INTERCEDES for the saints according to the will of God.…
1 Corinthians 2:8
None of the rulers of this age understood it. For if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9Rather, as it is written: “ No eye has seen, no ear has
heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10But God has revealed it to us by the Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.…
