Rosh Hashanah stands as a momentous occasion in the Hebrew calendar.
Recently, Pastor Troy Brewer shared a prophetic message exploring the Bible’s numerical significance and its connection to Rosh Hashanah. Throughout this prophetic exploration, he emphasizes the importance of aligning with God’s divine timing and purposes during these pivotal moments.
The Intersection of Calendars
In recent times, Pastor Brewer has noticed a curious alignment between the Gregorian and Hebrew calendars, particularly in the years 2016, 2020 and 2024. Each of the years that have already occurred had associated with them monumental events that shook the world to its core.
Luke chapter 11 records a very busy time in the ministry of Jesus. For three and a half years He was always working, but the pace of His ministry was accentuated at times, and this is one of those times.
He had been preaching the Sermon on the Mount, casting out devils, rebuking the Pharisees and going from synagogue to synagogue preaching the gospel of the kingdom. He stayed up all night ministering to people who had spirits of infirmity. He prayed for the sick, healed the lepers, raised the dead, walked on water and fed multitudes with hush puppies and sardines.
Everywhere Jesus went, people wanted Him to lay His hands upon them. He caused such a stir that the very things He preached— including being set free through deliverance—did two things: they brought Him the most criticism, and they gave Him the most fame. Jesus’ radical ministry drove the common people to Him, and it drove away the religious people who could not stand the truth of the gospel. The same thing is true today. Preaching the full truth of the gospel will draw the hearts of the hungry and repel the hearts of the religious.
Prayer. Prayer is the master key that unlocks the door to a victorious life and a powerfully effective ministry. These are perilous times, but we are not helpless or hopeless. We have prayer. Where there are praying believers, there is a listening God, ready to intervene and equip us with everything required for this walk of faith. In Luke 21:36 Jesus points to prayer as the key to escaping the difficult days that are unfolding before our very eyes:
“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
