This is the Biblical month of Kislev, equivalent to November/December in the Roman calendar. It’s a crossover month and a time to obtain increased focus on all that God is establishing in our lives.
During last month, I sensed a leaping forward in many areas of my life personally and I have heard that many of you have experienced the same. There’s been an increase of revelation, positioning us to receive a new assignment.
Kislev is represented by the tribe of Benjamin who was like a replacement son for Joseph – yet the only son of Jacob born in the Land of Promise. The Lord would say, ‘You have leaped forward into the place of assignment; now you have come to the full term of the prophetic word you have been carrying. Its time to bring the promise to birth! Its time for dreams to be fulfilled, for disappointments and difficulties to be overcome and its time to push, like Rachel pushed to bring forth Benjamin, her son of promise.’
Genesis 35:16-18 says, ‘Rachel went into labour and she had hard labour. And when her labour was at its hardest, the midwife said to her, “Do not fear, for you have another son.” And as her soul was departing (for she was dying) she called his name Benoni, but his father called him Benjamin.’
The ‘son of sorrow’ and even the ‘son of strength’ took on a new name: ‘son of my right hand’. Difficulties and trials, relationships and ministries will receive a new name and therefore a new identity this month, so get ready for change!
As you enter a time of rest the Lord is about to open up a season of dreams to you. Ask the Lord for increased awareness as you first open your eyes every morning on waking from sleep. Many of you will step into a new realm of revelation in the night watches especially. Angelic activity will surround you in the midnight – 3.00am watch. Record the revelation you receive in the night season, and decree the words of promise aloud. Shoot them out of your mouth like arrows into your prophetic destiny.
1 Chronicles 12:1-2 tells us that ‘Mighty men who helped David in war were bowmen and could shoot arrows or sling-stones’.
I hear the Lord say, ‘Decisions are being made at the release of the arrows, at the release of your decrees!’ Watch where the arrows land; watch whose heart the Lord opens to receive prophetic revelation; watch for new relationships to assist you in fulfilling your assignment from the Lord.
Genesis 49:27 says, ‘ Benjamin is a ravenous wolf, in the morning devouring the prey and at evening dividing the spoil.’ A ravenous appetite is being released; a deeper hunger after the presence of God. Set aside time to eat from His word. The dry season you have gone through has created a deep hunger and thirst that God wants to satisfy; you will not leave His presence disappointed.
Decrees for this month
- I am birthing my prophetic promise
- I am receiving increased prophetic revelation
- Your promises are like arrows I shoot into my destiny
- I will stand on my watch and see what the Lord says
- New relationships will assist God’s assignment for me
Blessings on you for this month!
