Put your foot down as we enter 2020 and the Hebrew / Jewish year 5780… a new decade of overflow and acceleration! Yes, sin and evil increases on the earth but far greater than that is the abundance of God’s favour, provision, strength and blessing on God’s children, all those who will believe and receive!
“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once – and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel: “They’ll rebuild their ruined cities. They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine. They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables. And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land. They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.” GOD, your God, says so.” Amos 9:11-15 (MSG)
As we enter a new year, new decade, the Hebrew decade and year beginning 5780 and Gregorian decade and year beginning 2020, the Lord says “Go in my overflow; spiritually, physically, relationally, financially, commercially and emotionally. Every place the soles of your feet shall tread that land I have given you. Nothing shall be impossible to those who believe, put their foot down and exercise my authority. What you permit on earth is permitted in heaven what you do not permit on earth is not permitted in heaven. You are the neck that turns the head, you are my authority on the earth, those who are sons and daughters by character and the new birth of my Holy Spirit. Hold your head high, not low, for as you do you lift up and reflect the beauty and wonder of my son, Jesus – multitudes will be drawn to Him in this hour of my power, through you.
In the year 2020 I AM bringing fresh clarity, insight and vision. An awakening of the prophetic upon my Church and a releasing very naturally of the supernatural! Twenty-Twenty vision in the year 20-20, 2020! Hidden truths will be uncovered and revealed. Ask and you shall receive from me twenty-twenty spiritual vision and fresh revelation, for ‘eyes to see and ears to hear, both are a gift from the Lord’.
I crown the year with my bounty, my heavenly surprises and kisses over your life, your paths drip with abundance! Step out and as you put your foot down and go, my miraculous abundance and blessing will flow!”
We have now gone beyond the Jewish decade 5770’s (double 7 meaning in Hebrew double portion, double blessing) and enter the Jewish decade 5780’s with all the fullness, fulfilment and meaning this contains. Numbers have great meaning and significance in Hebrew, that we, the Church, have lost by our distancing in understanding of our Jewish brothers’ customs and culture and our Jewish roots. In Hebrew you accumulate and add to, not detract from, what has gone before. Double portion goes with us… The number 5 signifies grace, 7 completion, and 8, well are you ready for this…. Eight goes beyond completion found in the number ‘7’ and means… ‘OVERFLOW’, ‘to make fat’, to bursting point’, ‘oil’ – depicting to be smeared with God’s anointing and ability, ‘to super abound’. How we will need this in the days ahead!
Zero doesn’t appear in the Bible or Hebrew in numerical form but zero as a concept is there. In Genesis 1:2: The earth was void, empty and without form…” Zero – nothing! Zero requires God’s intervention to make something out of nothing, bring His order into chaos – when our lives hit a big fat zero, we will hit the miracle zone! Impossibility hits possibility when Jesus is in the mix! Go again, hope again, believe again… Hebrews 11 speaks of many who hit the zero zone, they had nothing, could do nothing but faith in their unfailing God transformed ‘zeros into hero’s’! God is taking your nothingness and turning it into something miraculous, filling your emptiness and making whole your brokenness! In 2020/5780 you will see impossibility differently, for impossibility is heaven’s possibility and speciality as God’s Kingdom overflows increasingly!
The Bible speaks of “in the fullness of time, at the set time, at the appointed time”… God led his children out of bondage into the promised land…. God brought the Saviour of the world, The Jewish Messiah, Yeshua – Jesus… and in the fullness of time, at the set time, at the appointed time, we move from all that has been completed and fulfilled in order to prepare us for this time, as we enter with great excitement and expectation our appointed time in this new year and decade for the Church of Jesus Christ and children of God….OVERFLOW!
As you go God’s miraculous provision will burst out above you, beneath you, all around you as blessings surround you! Eight is the Hebrew word Shemoni (f) Shemonah (m) and literally means to “make fat”, new beginnings, a new order, not just complete (like 7) but satiated bursting and overflowing!
What you thought was the end, complete, done, finished – God calls a new beginning for your life! To become fat is to be complete and full to overflowing – the dams of your life bursting with blessing. God’s power, wisdom, provision and anointing will burst the banks of your life, jump off the pages of your Bible and onto the pavement wherever you put your foot down – the natural has just met the supernatural everywhere you go! Faith is the catalyst and humility the key!
In the Hebrew calendar era of 5780/2020 and this new decade we move into our fulfilment and the supernatural as God’s Kingdom comes. It depicts new beginnings as Hebraic thought sees time and the calendar as cyclical, not linear. Just like the sons and daughters of Issachar (1 Chronicles 12:32), may we discern the cycle and season we are in and as God’s children be ‘seers’, ‘hearers’, ‘revealers of God’s Kingdom, not revellers in the things of this world’, as we rise up knowing the God appointed time we are in. As the Holy Spirit spoke so beautifully to my heart this year “in the place of sacrifice and surrender you will be provided for and live in the much more of God”! Sacrifice and surrender precedes overflow. Sacrifice of your ways and your life for God’s higher ways and God’s life will ultimately be no sacrifice at all! What a divine invitation to partner with heaven.
Importantly, eight is a double portion of four. Four in Hebrew represents sceptre, government, authority and rule! Put your foot down in God’s authority, it is double portion time! I heard a God whisper “My Church will know my power in this hour”! Exercise your God given authority – declare, decree and so shall it be! My gorgeous, young daughter, Liella-Grace once said to me “If I was a Mummy I’d never make my children go to sleep and let them eat only sweets”! How many know she wasn’t ready for that position or authority, but you, children of God will be prepared, matured, made ready to reflect His character and goodness. Hidden away, your brokenness will become your openness to the things of the King and His Kingdom. To you is entrusted His authority in double portion power to bind and loose, what you permit on earth is permitted in heaven, what you do not permit is not permitted! God’s purposes on the earth accelerate and usher in His Kingdom as you live in His overflow everywhere you go, this will attract like a magnet a harvest of souls.
Arise and shine child of God, the darkness will try to put out your light but it cannot, to quench your desire but your passion for Jesus will emerge stronger than ever, to trample your faith on the floor but instead your faith will only be set up to soar stronger and higher than ever! Yes, arise and shine, this is God’s appointed time for you!
I have more to say as God has poured in through the power of His Word and beautiful Holy Spirit as we enter this new year and new decade, 2020 and 5780, but for now, the foundation is set, the appointed time of overflow and fulfilment for your life is here, we step into God’s new order and a day of new beginnings… Who will heed heaven’s invitation, put your foot down and accelerate into all God has for you in the new? Wherever God’s glory goes, God’s glory overflows!
“CHRIST in you [and me] the HOPE of GLORY!” Colossians 1:27
Biblical hope is not wishy washy like the worlds definition of hope, maybe something will happen, maybe it won’t. In Hebrew/Greek it means a confident expectation of God and good. What God says He will do – whether you enter in and partake of His promises, partner with His purposes and power in this hour, is set before you? ‘Glory’ is not something unattainable and airy fairy but the full weight of the presence of God! You and I can overflow everywhere we go, and declare confidently, with the backup of heaven and God’s legal word for our lives:
“Christ in me, the confident expectation of the full weight of the presence of God in my life, every situation and everywhere I go!” Put your foot down and accelerate into 2020/5780 in this authority and see your circumstances transformed for His glory!
“There is a divine mystery-a secret surprise that has been concealed from the world for generations, but now it’s being revealed, unfolded and manifested for every holy believer to experience. Living within you is the Christ who floods [overflows] you with the expectation of glory! This mystery of Christ, embedded within us, becomes a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for his people, and God wants everyone to know it.” Colossians 1:26-27 (TPT)
Praying a Happy, blessed and the best New Year, 2020 and Jewish year 5780, we embrace you – power packed with God’s presence, protection and provision, we the children of God look out fearlessly to the future and the overflow this decade holds… bring it on! “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea”! Habakkuk 2:14
