This is an amazing time in this new month of Tishrei, the first month on the Jewish civil calendar and seventh month on the religious calendar, which began sundown on September 25.
I can hear the Lord say, “Declare and decree my resurrection power this year!”
In Hebrew Year 5783, as God calls our mouths to open as the number “80” is “peh” in Hebrew and number “3” is resurrection power and the Trinity. We are called as the children of the inheritance to minister His overcoming resurrection power! To roar with our mouths His dunamis miracle-working power!
What does, “roaring in the authority of resurrection power” even mean? It means that sin, death and the grave have been overcome and we speak it. We no longer have to toil physically or mentally with fatigue because we have authority as kingdom citizens captured by our death, burial and resurrection in Christ. We can simply rest in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross as we declare His dunamis miracle-working power! I encourage you to rest with Him, just as the Israelites did as they traveled from Egypt to the Promised Land, and remember His grace and power during the Feast of Tabernacles!
In 2 Corinthians 12:9-10, when the apostle Paul asked the Lord to remove the thorn in his flesh three times, this was the Lord’s response, “And He said unto me, ‘My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore, I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”
We have stepped full force into the new Hebrew year 5783. It’s a special time. God is calling us this year to realize the resurrection power of Jesus Christ at a new level and to walk in His authority like never before. We understand the power and glory of God when we understand what the apostle Paul was sharing about God’s dunamis power made manifest in our weakness.
Learning to rest more in God and the finished work of our death, burial and resurrection in Him, and less in our own strength, will open portals for us to step into the true meaning of resurrection power and a fulfillment of the glory of the Lord.
In Philippians 3:9-10, the apostle Paul again stresses knowing the resurrection power of Jesus Christ. The scripture reads, “And be found in Him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death.”
A key this Hebrew Year of 5783 is learning to release more, rest more, not to despise vulnerability, but realize it is a time where God Himself will flood your spirit and soul with a new understanding of His resurrection power. In other words, when you don’t hate your weakness but instead embrace it as an avenue for God to flow through you, you are promised to see the resurrection power of the Lord invade your circumstances. Often our greatest strengths can inhibit the glorious move of God in the earth but when we instead embrace our weakness, we are confessing Christ victorious over them and through them.
God is going to give you a roar during this season. He is going to give you an utterance so you can stand in the authority of His resurrection power. Open your heart to receive it!
