Sivan 5783: Sinai and Zion are Open
Sivan is a month of encounter and expansion. It is a time of moving into a territory largely unknown by us but familiar and comfortable for the Father Son and Holy Spirit. Deception is also at its height this month and the enemy desperately wants to divide, conquer, and distract while Adonai is lifting the veil for new revelation and opening the door into a deeper dimension of closeness with Him and a oneness we have never experienced before. Keep your guard up, but also be expectant and ready for face to face encounters with Yeshua, and to have the understanding that what is happening in the natural is nothing but a hologram of the true nature of things right now according to Almighty God.
Sivan is a month of covenant and celebration as we give thanks for all that God has given and has promised, an opportunity to once again enter into a time of cleansing and purification as we go up to the mountain of the Lord to commune with the Most High. Get ready to be launched into new understanding and revelation as God meets us on His Holy mountain this month.
Mount Sinai is Awakened
From the calm and quiet of the desert where shepherds bring their flocks to graze on the heights of Mount Sinai, suddenly millions of people arrive and the God of Israel descends and makes it His dwelling place. The true reason for Mount Sinai’s existence is revealed and Israel, a people once slaves, now stand before God Himself who chose them out of all the nations of the earth to be a holy nation, a priesthood nation set apart from the rest. Our invitation this Sivan is similar to that of Israel who approached Mount Sinai for the first time this month. While the world paints a picture and sets it before us telling us what is real and fake, we are currently being invited by Adonai to forget completely the world before He entered our hearts to make us His dwelling place, and understand the new reality He is calling us up to.
As we were praying and asking God about His new blueprint for Sivan I had an open vision of people from around the world changing into space suits and boarding many rockets which launched into space. As we exited the earth’s atmosphere people were struggling with the new living conditions, but were in awe of what the earth looked like so far below us and marveled at the creation of God around us seeing the stars with a clarity never thought possible. Although we were far outside our comfort zones, we were all chose to be there and knew we had made the right choice, and now the challenge was learning how to thrive in our new reality.
This Sivan, just like the Israelites, we are being asked to choose, to choose if we will continue to accept the reality the world paints for us, or to suit up and be launched into our heavenly reality to live and see according to the eyes and heart of the Father. Exodus 19-24 which played out during this month of Sivan saw Israel say yes to being God’s chosen people and Moses receiving the Ten Commandments and the Torah, as well as Moses, Aaron and the 70 elders entering the cloud which covered the mountain to see God face to face and dine with Him. This is our daily invitation this Sivan, our daily bread, to approach Him on His Holy mountain which we have access to by the blood Yeshua realizing this is a global invitation to the Body of Yeshua to see Him face to face. Mount Sinai is open in both the natural and the Spirit and it is our turn to choose if we will ascend or not to embrace fully our new reality as born again from above sons and daughters of the Most High. Who will choose to suit up? Who will step out of the elaborate deceptions of the world? Let’s go up to the mountain of the Lord!
Mount Zion is Activated
A global call has gone forth to fast and pray for the salvation of Israel. The Holy Spirit has marked this time for the hearts of the global Body of Yeshua to remember the promises of God over Israel and to have the heart of Paul understanding the mystery of Romans 11:25 that the hearts of Israel have been hardened to the Gospel so that the fullness of the gentiles will be saved before the salvation of Israel will be fulfilled. From Sinai to Zion, the promises of El Shaddai are coming full circle. The Gospel has reached the ends of the earth and the trumpet of God is being sounded for salvation to return from whence it came, Zion, the apple of His eye.
Isaiah 62 and 63 are the times we are living in, and the remnant of Adonai with His angel armies are being called to action as the winds of the Holy Spirit blow from the four corners of the earth back to Jerusalem. Ekklesias are rising up in oneness throughout the globe building highways of salvation in the natural and the Spirit sparking fires of revival in their homes, towns, cities and nations. The fallen kingdom of darkness has grown bold and defiant, but the people of the Light of Yeshua are not dismayed or afraid as we harken to the voice of the Great I Am stiffened in our resolve at the command of the King of glory that says
“Do not fear, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and gather you from the west. “I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ And to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring My sons from far away and My daughters from the ends of the earth, everyone who is called by My Name, whom I have created for My glory, whom I have formed, even whom I have made” Isaiah 43:5-7).”
As we approach Shavuot (Pentecost) the ones who have been baptized in the Holy Spirit and fire, you who are reading this, are being ignited and prepared in your nations as a catalyst to bring light to the darkness in your nation and region and in your spheres of influence back to where the Gospel came forth, Zion. The atmosphere here in Israel is primed, and the hearts of the people are being prepared. Despite the trajectory of the current world order, the heavens are being opened around the world for those that will focus on the eyes of Yeshua seated across from them at His table (Psalm 23). Shalom and joy encompass you and a light that cannot be put out burns within you for the world to see. Past fears and traumas are being healed and what was once a crutch to you is being crafted into a weapon against the accuser of the brethren. The bad that once defined you is instead refining you, and the once broken vessel is being restored as a carrier of the glory of God.
A Righteous Decree is Sealed
A covenant was made between Israel and God this month upon Mount Sinai, and it was remembered by Adonai long after in Sivan as well. In the Capital of Persia on the 23rd day of Sivan the exiled Israelites put pen to paper writing a new decree to replace the decree of extermination, and sealed the new decree with the King’s signet ring (Esther 8:9-13). This Sivan marks a new beginning for yourself individually, for your family, congregation, business, city, nation, and Israel that is irrevocable. You have been bought, paid for, and covered irrevocably by the blood of Yeshua, and sealed by the Holy Spirit and fire to deliver the message and presence of God into the midst of the world and Israel that has been sold the lie of abandonment and destruction. Like the prophet Daniel who understood the time of renewal for Israel had come (Daniel 9) we are being called to raise our voices in repentance and prayer for the destinies of our nations and Israel to be ushered in. We are witnesses of Yeshua proclaiming the good news in this new month of Sivan saying,
“It will no longer be said of you, “Azubah (Abandoned),” nor will it any longer be said of your land, “Shemamah (Desolate)”; But you will be called, “Hephzibah (My Delight is in Her),” and your land, “Married”; for the Lord delights in you, and to Him your land will be married [owned and protected by the Lord]” (Isaiah 62:4).
As this promise of God goes forth in the weight of His glory the ones who reel against God and profess to be greater than Him are being put on notice. In this month, on the first of Sivan, Ezekiel was charged by God to deliver a message of judgement to Pharaoh and all of Egypt that would show the world that God Almighty is the King of kings and Sovereign God over all (Ezekiel 31). Likewise, God is moving throughout the earth to do so, but at the same time the voice of the ones crying out in the wilderness is being heard for their nations and Israel asking the King of glory to remember Isaiah 52:14-15 that says,
“So He will sprinkle many nations [with His blood, providing salvation], kings will shut their mouths because of Him; For what they had not been told they will see, and what they had not heard they will understand.”
Adonai is holding fast on His promise to the nations that pretend to raise themselves up above His throne and to the nations that come against Israel, but the cry of His saints is also being heard. In this month of commissioning, the same month as Israel’s covenant with Adonai and the giving of the Ten Commandments, may our words be followed by action and may Sivan be the month that you shine the brightest amidst the darkness, coming into agreement with the books of heaven that have been written for you as you shrug off the lies and deceptions of the enemy. This is the month of oneness in the Body of Yeshua like those in the upper room on Shavuot (Acts 2) which welcomed the Spirit of Truth that sparked a fire from Jerusalem to Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth. Now the invitation of Mount Sinai and Mount Zion is going forth to all who have ears to hear and eyes to see to come and dine with him on His holy mountain (Exodus 24:9-11), and to bring our first fruits of this new harvest up to Zion (Exodus 34:22) as the Holy Spirit leads welcoming the Spirit of Truth to be poured out once more in a double portion in these end times. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the salvation of Israel this Sivan so that as Israel is saved, Yeshua will return in haste. Let the light of Yeshua shine brighter this Sivan and make the darkness flee. You are a beacon, a pulse of the heart of the Father as the Holy Spirit awakens and moves through you this Sivan. His heart beat is loud to those around you. You are being called as a shofar this Sivan not only to encounter Yeshua and expand the kingdom of God in a deeper revelation and oneness, but also to be a trumpet that brings this to the world. Arise and shine and shout from the mountain of the Lord the righteous decree of God for this time and season so that the veil of satan is torn in two giving people and nations eyes to see and receive the Spirit of Truth. Adonai bless you and keep you!
