September is the ninth month on our Gregorian calendar and represents a number of birthings.
On the Hebrew calendar, Rosh Hashanah is the celebration of the Jewish new year, and begins Sept. 25-27. The first day of autumn is Sept. 22 and is also symbolic of a time of change and harvest.
The New Monarchy Creation
As recently as Aug. 31, I was spending time in prayer when I saw a vision of a monarch butterfly and two other monarchs around it. Shortly after, I saw a picture of luminous nuggets of gold. I had been sensing that the intense testing I had been going through was coming to an end, and the Lord highlighted to me that these appeared on the last day of the month of August—the eighth month which represents new beginnings and restoration.
I finally received the confirmation sign that the last “trimester” was complete, even through the number of butterflies in the vision. For me, it was three months to the day of the most heated fires and fiercest testing I have encountered this far in my life.
The number three represents the Spirit, and I have remained confident it was the Lord’s will to test me. Butterflies, because of their complete metamorphosis, are often associated with new beginnings and rebirth. We know that gold is refined in fire or extreme heat, and the nuggets represent the depths. From the deep and hidden places is now emerging the monarch creation.
The word monarch is defined as:
- One who reigns over a state or territory, usually for life and by hereditary right, especially
- A sole and absolute ruler
- A sovereign, such as a king or empress, often with constitutionally limited authority
- One that commands or rules
- One that surpasses others in power or preeminence
- A monarch butterfly
- The chief of a monarchy; a supreme governor for life, entitled variously emperor (or empress), king (or queen), czar (or czarina), sultan, shah, etc.; primarily, a sole or autocratic ruler of a state, but in modern times generally a hereditary sovereign with more or less limited powers.
A gold nugget is a naturally occurring piece of native gold. “Gold nuggets originate from gold-bearing lodes. These derive from denser underground locations of the Earth, emerging on the surface through volcanic activity. Nuggets are pieces of naturally-occurring gold, detached from the lode, and then transported by natural forces in nearby sites like rivers.”
“Listen to Me, you who pursue righteousness (right standing with God), Who seek and inquire of the Lord: Look to the rock from which you were cut And to the excavation of the quarry from which you were dug. Look to Abraham your father And to Sarah who gave birth to you in pain; For I called him when he was but one, Then I blessed him and made him many.” For the Lord will comfort Zion [in her captivity]; He will comfort all her ruins. And He will make her wilderness like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the Lord; Joy and gladness will be found in her, Thanksgiving and the voice of a melody. “Listen carefully to Me [says the Lord], O My people, And hear Me, O My nation; For a [divine] law will go forth from Me, And I will quickly establish My justice as a light to the peoples. My righteousness (justice) is near, My salvation has gone forth, And My arms will judge the peoples; The islands and coastlands will wait for Me, And they will wait with hope and confident expectation for My arm” (Isa. 51:1-5 AMP).
Early in the morning of Aug. 9, I had a dream, and in the latter part a woman was speaking to me as she was riding in the front passenger side of a vehicle. She was nearly going to give birth any moment. In fact, she appeared to be overdue.
I was riding in the back though leaning into the front to listen, and at times was viewing the scene from third person. At one point, she was using the opened glove box as a tray, and eating sliced meat. The meaning of the pregnant woman’s name means “harvester” and “late summer.”
We were in an urban area driving down a narrow backstreet with colorful artistic painting and graffiti on the city walls. The word urban is Latin urbanus meaning, “of or pertaining to a city or city life; in Rome,” also “in city fashion, polished, refined, cultivated, courteous;” urbis “city, walled town.”
As I have been praying for the restoration of Eden, I believe the redeemed, tested and mature sons and daughters are being “reborn” to take dominion for and with our heavenly Father; that we may establish His kingdom as our rightful inheritance for such a time as this. This is a pivotal season of change and establishing, a time to walk into the fullness of what we were born to do—with humility, gratitude and maturity. A time to redeem the land; polish, refine and cultivate in courtesy to its Creator and with integrity to the original design. A time to build and re-build from the ancient path, fulfill the dream and blueprint of His heart, repair the walls that are continually before Him, make straight the highway and keep in sight the city of our God.
We Are Moving from Pressure to Promise
The harvest has been long overdue, and speaks of many different types of crops—from salvation of the eternal spirit to the secret petitions of the heart, the Lord is restoring life and waking all of our parts. The Father will fulfill His promises while the Son kisses your heart, delivered by the Holy Spirit and marked by a brand-new start. From pressure to promise, the renaissance is beginning, watch now for the birthing and re-birthing is here. Steward well the authority given, for this shall be known as a season of “on earth as it is in heaven.” Lean in and incline your ear, do you not hear the sound of creation groaning?
