The day we entered into the Hebrew month of Nisan I woke up to a song in my heart and on my lips… “it’s a new season, it’s a new day. a fresh anointing is flowing my way. a season of power and prosperity. it’s a new season coming my way.”
Lately in prayer I keep hearing God say “new day, new day!!”…. He led me to Joshua 1:2 ““Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land that I am giving to them, to the people of Israel.” This happened in the Hebrew month of Nisan. A new day had come for the children of Israel… the old way of living (in the Wilderness) was over and it was now time to cross over into the Promise Land and receive all that God had promised them. I believe we have also entered into a new day… a time to cross over and enter our Promise Land.
This is the month of Passover… a time of liberation, personal change, going from slavery to freedom, and the emerging out of the old. A month of Repentance, Redemption and Miracles. It’s called the season of the ‘miracle of miracles’ and your appointed time for great blessing! Nissan has within it the word Nes, which in Hebrew is miracle….an open miracle as opposed to the hidden miracles in the book of Esther. It is the month that the King had favor on Nehemiah and granted him permission to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the wall.
A month to watch your speech.. be aware of what your confessions are. If you speak negatively during this month, it will adversely affect you months down the road. The seeds of negativity take root and will pull you backward. Your positive confessions should “grab the wind” and change the atmosphere. This is also a month assigned to the right foot.. a time to step out….. and step forth in strength and consider where the Lord is leading you this year. Move ahead confidently in God. Numbers 33:3 “They set out from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month. On the day after the Passover, the people of Israel went out triumphantly in the sight of all the Egyptians”. In the Hebrew the word used is “rum” (pronounced room)… it means exalted. Psalm 18:4 says God exalts us above our enemies.
The letter “hei” is assigned to this month. Hei is my favorite of all the Hebrew letters. This letter is for behold!….it speaks of revelation and light. It is wind, breath, the Spirit of God blowing on us…. it is the divine breath of God’s creative power breathed into Adam. It is the number 5 which speaks of God’s grace and goodness. It is the transforming power of Holy Spirit that changed Abram to Abraham and Sarai to Sarah. This blessing of the letter “hei” is available to us in the month of Nisan… His grace and goodness, His redemption, revelation and light, and of course the wind of His Spirit transforming us and making us fruitful and productive. Ask the Holy Spirit to blow upon you for refreshing, for new revelation, and for a quickened understanding of what God is doing.
It is the month of Judah. Judah represents apostolic leadership… they were the warring tribe who knew how to operate with sound. They were the tribe that went out first in battle (Judges 20:18)… they were also the first tribe in the order of procession when Israel moved in the wilderness (Num. 10:14) Judah also means “to cast a smooth stone against your enemy”…. that is what David, who was of the tribe of Judah, did to Goliath… praise will bring your enemy down. Judah’s symbol is the lion… Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. Judah comes from the Hebrew word “Yadah”, which means to praise, to give thanks, to glorify or to acknowledge God. They were a people of praise…. praise was their identity. This tribe camped to the East of the tabernacle. The entrance to the tabernacle was on the East…. likewise, the way into His presence is with praise. God assigned a portion of land to all the tribes…. Judah was given Jerusalem. God told them that He would choose one location that would be His holy place, where He would manifest His presence, this place was Jerusalem. For us to dwell in His presence and experience His blessings, we must be a people of praise.
Nisan is March 21st – April 19th on our calendar. March 21st not only marks the Spring season for us but it is also the beginning of the Spring months on the Hebrew calendar. It is a time of coming out of a dead winter and positioning yourself to bring forth new life and flourish…. a time of rebirth and a fresh start. This month sets the course for your future. Spring is a time to plant…. as you sow this month declare that your harvest is being secured and that every seed will prosper. Biblically it is the “New year of Kings”… a time of counting the years of the reigns of kings in ancient Israel. It is also the month when kings go to war (2 Sam 10:1)… This is a time to reign as kings and use your authority…. to war for your covenant promises with praise. Zech 10:1 tells us to ask the Lord for rain in the springtime…. this month is a time to ask for the rain of His presence.
Nisan is a time God has scheduled on His calendar for a a powerful outpouring of salvation and deliverance for our families, breakthroughs in our business and finances and the miracle of a new beginning in every area of your life! It’s a window of opportunity that’s passing by right now, so press in with faith and lay hold of every blood bought promise of God, paid for in full by Jesus Christ our Passover Lamb. A time to expect miracles not only in your life but signs, wonders and miracles working through you.
