This month’s first fruit celebration will be an important new door to step through as we approach the Feast of Tabernacles in September.
This month is both an halfway marker from the month of Nisan and the completion of the civil year in the Hebrew calendar. I had a strong sense that these two points were important as some of you have come to a halfway stage. I hear The Lord saying ‘Keep going, there is strength to step over into new territory.’ To those who have brought a season to completion He says, ‘Well done: now is the time to plough for a new season.’
The King is in the field of your assignment and He has all you need. Keep your ears open to His voice and be awake to see all He is doing.
I also heard The Lord say that this month ‘The lights are changing from red to green; be prepared to move forward.’
In this time of preparation, keep your hearts tuned to the tribe of Gad and their prophetic significance. They were a tribe that understood attack and seeming defeat – but knew how to re-organise to bring about victory. Genesis 49:19 states that “Gad will be attacked by a band of raiders, but he will attack them at their heels.” Gad means ‘a camp’ and Gad was the tribe who knew how to re-organise and reorder the camp, so that out of defeat victory could be secured.
This month will be a time to re-order your life in order to overcome. To help you in this, I ask you to join me in a Daniel fast, which is a vegetable fast (see Daniel 1:12; 10:1-2) from the 1st through 21st of September. This will be in preparation to receive the revelation needed for the coming year. This time of fasting will end as Chuck Pierce joins us for our Tabernacles Celebration at Revival Fires Church at the ARC in Dudley, which runs from Thursday 19 through Saturday 21 September.
Fasting will align your life with revelation the Lord discloses, so that you can advance in this new year. It would be good if you would set aside this time to fast and join us for the Tabernacles Celebration. The Lord is looking for those who know how to prepare for the new season and He will not delay to bring about the prophetic mandates He issues during this time set aside. We have also set up a Facebook Group where I will be posting words of guidance, encouragement and progress during the fast. I invite you to join this open group, here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/557335610968494/
This time will be marked by enlargement and provision of the best places of assignment or spheres of ministry, where you will carry out the Lord’s purposes and bring justice into the areas where you have influence.
Read this scripture about the tribe of Gad: “Blessed is he who enlarges Gad’s domain! Gad lives there like a lion, tearing at arm or head. He chose the best land for himself; the leader’s portion was kept for him. When the heads of the people assembled, he carried out the Lord’s righteous will, and his judgments concerning Israel.” Deuteronomy 33:20-21
This will be a key passage to take with you throughout this next season and declare it over every prophetic word. It’s time to harvest the prophetic promises and enter your field of prophetic dreams: “Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord God: None of my words will be delayed any longer, but the word that I speak will be performed, declares the Lord God.” Ezekiel 12:28
