This morning I woke up with a scripture… actually I heard the scripture while I was in that state between sleeping and waking. Daniel 10:2, the angel told Daniel “I have come for your words”. I realized after waking that we have now entered into the month of Sivan (May 19th – June 17th on our calendar) and we are at the last few days of counting the omer. Day 45 to be exact. Omer means to utter speech – to verbally count the days. It is a transition period between Passover (Pesach) and Pentecost (Shavout)… a transition from deliverance into an outpouring from Heaven. An outpouring of HIs Spirit. In this transition period it is important to “verbally count the days” with declarations…. declarations of HIs promises over our lives, of who we are In Christ and of all that Christ purchased for us through His death and resurrection. These declarations prepare us for an outpouring of Revelation, align us in His perfect will for us, and angels are activated as we declare His Word (Psalm 103:20). Imagine my excitement and expectancy when I woke hearing Dan 10:2 ” I have come for your words”. His angels are working on my behalf… obeying God’s Word that I have been declaring.
Sivan is the last of the Spring months… it is still a time to plant as we end this season and prepare for a new one…. 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 to use your authority…. to war for your covenant promises. 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.
The letter associated with Sivan is Zayin. It is the 7th letter which represents rest, completion and blessing. It looks like a sword and means crowned. This is a month to be crowned with blessings, to receive mercy to complete things, to accelerate your walk and receive vision, and to receive a fresh baptism of fire.
The tribe is Zebulon. They were a tribe who were givers.. the profited in trade and filled the storehouses. They prospered for a purpose. We need to ask God to teach us His Word economics this month so that we can be givers and providers for the Kingdom. This is the month to ask God for a greater understanding of giving strategies, so that you stay in a total harvest mentality and live in a continuous cycle of blessings (Luke 6:38) A time to allow Him to develop “faithfulness” in us. A time to know our identity and His plans/purposes for us.
This month marks the end of the Spring season and we will enter into Summer. God arranged the tribes of Israel into an army. They went out in 3’s. The first camp was Judah, Issachar, and Zebulon. The tribe of Judah (Praise) always marched first, their call was to rule, to lead in battle and to worship. Worship and warfare always go together. Issachar knew the times, they were a prophetic tribe and also known as the Torah tribe because they knew the Word. Zebulon had the ability to prosper through godly systems of trade. These 3 tribal anointings are important in this season. We must be a people of praise, prophecy and prosperity. These are the blessings of this season.. and walking in these will allow the Lord to order our steps the rest of the year.
