REDEMPTION, DELIVERANCE AND MIRACLES
It is officially the month of Nissan, the first month of the year, and what an important month it is! The duration of the month of Nissan is from March 17th to April 15th on the Gregorian calendar. It marks the official beginning of spring for the year when the dead comes to life and the flowers bloom. See more regarding the spring at (THE GARDEN OF HEAVEN) The word Nissan comes from the Hebrew word “Miracle”, and the Jews refer to this month as “Miracles of Miracles.” This month is also known as the month of Redemption and Deliverance. We are called to have repentant hearts always and we are indeed redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ, however this month will also be a month of the breaking of generational curses, the unraveling of the plans of the enemy, and the breaking of the chains of guilt and grief in your life. Be expectant for God to do great miracles in your life, especially for the miracles that you have been waiting for a long time. This is the beginning of your full restoration, but do not wait expecting restoration to come without first having redemption and deliverance. As the next month of Lyar its the month of restoration, many people make the mistake of believing that restoration comes without redemption or deliverance. You will not make that mistake. You will press in. In the Month of Nissan… remember Esther received the miracle of redemption and deliverance for the Hebrews, and in the month of Lyar they began to prosper like never before. In the month of Nissan Nehemiah started the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem, and in Lyar of the next year they were completely restored.
The tribe associated with this month is the tribe of Judah. The word Judah means “to give thanks, to praise; to worship. It is the time to worship like never before! Before entering in we must first praise Him, then continue onward toward the Holy of Holies. “Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name” (Psalm 100:4). Worship the King of Kings in Spirit and in Truth and give glory to “Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20). This cannot be understated as It is also the month of the Pessaj Feast that celebrates the liberation of the Hebrews from Egyptian slavery, and the Lord speaks clearly about why He wanted the pharaoh to let His people go in Exodus 9:1 where it is written, “Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: “LET MY PEOPLE GO, SO THAT THEY MAY WORSHIP ME“! The tribe of Judah was always at the front of the formation, at the head of the procession of the tabernacle of Moses in the wilderness (Numbers 2:3). They would have been the first to see or hear any sign of danger and were the tribe that would alert all of those coming behind them what of they had seen. They were the forerunners paving the trail to the promised land. Remember, we were called to lead the way. The ones that lead the way like John the Baptist are pioneers who simply hear what the Spirit of God is saying and do it with absolute faith. We must also be forerunners like the Apostle John, who was so close to the heart of Yeshua. John’s intimate understanding of the heart of Jesus, and thereby the heart of the Father, and the relentlessness of spreading the message of the Kingdom, ultimately led him to be the last of the living 12 Apostles, where on the prison island of Patmos, he was taken to heaven and shown what would happen in the end times! It all starts with worship in Spirit and in Truth! The Lord is going to lead a new worldwide apostolic movement from the East (Asia) back to Jerusalem. If you are the prophetic generation of the end times, it is time for you to see the books of heaven and have discernment not to be deceived by any man or doctrine, to be taken from the right path, or delayed in any way.
The Hebrew letter associated with this month is “Hei” the unification of giving and receiving. It stands for expression (thought, speech, action) and revelation. In the four letter name of God in Hebrew, the only letter repeated is the letter “Hei”, something that is very noteworthy in that anything repeated more than once in the Word of God within the same word, sentence or train of thought has great importance. The number of “Hei” in the Bible is five, and represents the five fold ministry, as well as grace. The proper definition of grace in the biblical context is, “The free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.” “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8). This month you will operate in a greater aptitude and understanding in the ministry you have been called to by the Holy Spirit, expressing a greater depth of the Grace of God in worship and in your relationships.
The heavenly sign associated with Nissan is (The Ram / Lamb) which represents the deliverance of the Hebrew people from Egypt and the sacrifice of the passover lamb. In Exodus 12 we are given a vivid picture of God’s mercy on the Israelites. With the blood of a lamb spread over there doors, they were protected from the spirit of death that God brought upon the Egyptians. Jesus Christ is now the Lamb who was slain as He sacrificed Himself once for all for the forgiveness of our sins. “But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified” (Hebrews 10:12). “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29). In all of God’s mercy He brought heaven down to us. “I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp” (Revelation 21:22-23). When we receive redemption this month it is because the full capacity of the Blood of Yeshua is working in us, causing us to be a light to the nations.
Lastly, the Blue Topaz is the stone that represents the month of Nissan. It is in the 9th row of the new wall of Jerusalem in Revelation 21:20. It represents redemption, revelation and open heavens. When we focus on the hottest part of a fire we see a blue flame. This is the time to focus on Yeshua’s eyes that are like a blazing fire (Revelation 19:12), and to see the deepest part of His eyes which are the lamp of the body, and we will begin to see the deepest revelations of the Almighty. “But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God”(1 Corinthians 2:10). We know that with redemption comes revelation. Redemption is the power of His love that purifies and refines us. “Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; For love is as strong as death, Jealousy as cruel as the grave; Its flames are flames of fire, a most vehement flame”(Song of Songs 8:6). Only a Spirit that is purified and refined can enter into the highest dimensions of revelation. If we are redeemed, the blue flame lives within us and refines us. When the blue flame is ignited within us we will then be able to love others. “We love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19). When we look to the heavens, what we see are blue skies which symbolize open heavens. This is the time where God wants us to be familiar with the reality of heaven and the dwelling place of God. As we get more familiar with heaven we will begin to more easily multiply heaven on earth and to multiply the blessings of open heavens, which is to be under the hand of God. “He makes winds His messengers, flames of fire His ministers” (Psalm 104:4). May we truly be known as those He makes to be His ministers… flames of fire.
