Welcome to the month of September. What a prophetic and pivotal period we are in my friend.
Realize that the 9-month signals birthing of something new which this year, is happening in tangent with the beginning of the year 5784 in the Hebrew calendar. Essentially, we have an intersection between the Gregorian birthing month and the transition between year 5783 to 5784 in the Hebrew calendar, where a birthing occurs in time for a new dispensation. Indeed, it is a prophetic season which the Lord has been highlighting to me with some words for the season.
I believe that this month of September you are birthing something new, and it is a blessed and new beginning for the righteous and for such a time as this. There are some things to look out for so let’s set our expectations, shall we?
What to expect:
Pain to Delight
As with natural birthing process, there is a period of immense travailing birth pangs especially after a period of extensive discomfort, stretching to increase capacity that then follows with the final push for birthing. I believe a lot of us have been going through that process in one area or the other of our lives. A lot of my little sphere of influence have been going through enormous enlarging on a scale they haven’t been through before because we need to have more capacity for what is to come. But how joyous is it when a new birth is born, what a delightful beauty to behold! Anticipate the delight of the Lord.
Death to Life
There is also a process of shedding, loss, and death of some things to make room for the new. Something has got to give because God is not going to put His new wine in your old wineskin and so whatever he needs to be removed before this newness that comes with this season must be removed and so, if we haven’t already, some of us may experience some painful losses in some areas of our lives (relationships amongst others) and it would not feel good. Even during the process of childbirth, there is loss of blood (which is life) and the placenta that was needed for preparing, nurturing, and sustaining what is being birth.
It is important to be aware of this and let things happen, not holding on to what we must let go of and not letting what we must let go of, hold on so tight. It is also important to be loving, graceful & humble where this loss involves relationships even when the response you get from the other party is offense or other negative patterns. It is easier said than done right? I know because I have been there, and I didn’t know then what I know now. I am however thankful for wisdom.
There is also a changing of the guards which comes with a handover of equipping and mantles, in some cases newly established mantles because He is doing A NEW THING, not one we have seen before. This means that some of the old who are finished can pass the baton and God is releasing some first-generation mantles through you whom He has been preparing in the secret place, we may call it New Life. Stay willing, ready, and positioned.
Warfare to Victory
Have you been feeling like there is such a battle for so much at the moment, both physically and supernaturally? How many fires have you been quenching, one after the other and from one area to the other? Do you feel like you are having opposition here and there without cause?
Well, if your answer is “yes”, congratulations because with the help of God not only are you being propelled to fight for more and to win because no weapon formed against you shall prosper, but victory is also finally here this month. You will see a victory and what is within you is at it’s birthing time & place. You are also stronger now with increased authority that comes with your victory!
Set your expectations because your water is breaking any moment and so it’s the final labouring moment, the contractions are setting in to usher out the new and you must not give up. As a baby being birth announces themselves with a loud cry, I can literally see and hear the loud sound of from a shofar announcing you in this season like never before.
The birth of anything new requires care to thrive and have longevity. We must therefore be aware of what care & nurturing is required for that which we have birth or will birth. For some of you, it’s a business, for others it’s a career step, for some a ministry, an assignment, for some it is a community, for some it is literally a new baby, a new relationship(s). Whatever the case maybe for you, you must look within with the help of the Holy Spirit, for strategies to help nurture and grow what you have birth.
As we are a few days away from the Hebrew year 5784, let me declare upon you according to Isaiah 61 and Isaiah 11:
“Comfort all who mourn, and provision for those who grieve.
a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
You will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendour.
You will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; you will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.
Strangers will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.
You will be called priests of the Lord; you will be named ministers of our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast.
Instead of your shame, you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so, you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.
Your descendants will be known among the nations and your offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge that you are a people the Lord has blessed.”
“The Spirit of the Lord will rest on you— the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel, the Spirit of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and of the fear of the Lord”
