This is the month of Tevet in the Hebrew calendar and this is the month represented by the Tribe of Dan.
Over the past month, culminating in the Prophetic Seer’s conference at the Apostolic Resource Centre, we had a very clear word that this was the time to walk through the open door and God had even removed the door from its hinges! On the last night of the conference I was constrained by the Holy Spirit to go over to the door we had set up in the sanctuary as a prophetic symbol; I picked it up and threw it across the room, declaring ‘This is the time for us to walk through the open door!’ I asked everyone present to come and declare, ‘My door is open and I am stepping through the open door.’ Let us declare these words out: ‘My door is open and I have stepped through into my place of enlargement.’
Many of you reading this Prophetic Mandate will have gone through times of restriction: times when the enemy has sought to keep you from stepping forward into a place of increase and enlargement. But I believe that God has worked on your behalf and has rebuked the one who has opposed you and has removed the obstacles blocking your way.
I believe that there will be two things that we will need to do during this month of Tevet: the first is that we will need to pray that our open door would remain open! Colossians 4:3 (ESVST) Paul makes a request: ‘At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison.’ The second is that we need to keep stepping forward into places of enlargement. Psalms 119:45 (ESVST) tells us ‘I shall walk in a wide place, for I have sought your precepts.’
In order for these two things to become a reality in our lives we will need a new anointing to step across the threshold into the new things that God has for us. Thresholds are of course a place of transition, or crossing over, and in these places we are at our most vulnerable. Let me encourage you to look for and to expect the Angelic Realm to manifest for angels are always present during times of transition.
This is a month where we need to return to Abiding in the Secret Place because it is there that we find security and our assurance in God. Set aside time this month to soak in His Presence once again so that it becomes a continuous expression of our desire for God.
The meaning of Dan is the one who judges or brings vindication. One of the things we need to discern during this month is the accusation or judgement of the enemy to condemn us of past mistakes. Agree with the declaration of Romans 8:1: ‘There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.’ Then we need to remind ourselves that the Lord is making decrees in our favour! Daniel chapter 7 will be the key passage to pray and intercede over. Clothed in a robe of favour, we will receive a new anointing so that we are furnished with an ability to succeed in our lives, and possess a new dimension of the Kingdom in the place of our God given assignment.
- Decree: ‘God’s favour anoints my threshold and furnishes me with all I need to succeed.’
- Decree: ‘This is the time for me to grow in favour with God and man.’
- Decree: ‘My open door releases all that is needed when I show up.’
I am convinced that this is the time for your enlargement! Things that have been elusive to you in the past, will become evident and available to you; that which has been out of reach before, will become tangible and ready for you to grasp.
It’s time to give in faith for your future enlargement! Your first fruit gift will break the cycle of lack and activate Gods extravagant provision. Don’t hold back but release your first fruit offering up to the Lord. Know that in this month of enlargement you will be able to stand strong, in faith for God to open up a new source of finance making you flourish.
I pray for you all during this month that you will find a new anointing upon your life and come into alignment with God’s purposes and know an increase in your sphere of influence.
Blessing over this coming season.
