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…. it’s 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 these 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.
IN CHRIST we have been liberated and have gone from slavery to freedom… from slavery to sonship. We have emerged out of the old and have become new creatures in Him. This month walk in the revelation of ALL that your redemption has made available to you. Believe for miracles flowing through you everywhere you go and to everyone you meet. Walk in the divine favor that has been granted to you by the King of kings.
Nisan is 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.
He is the High Priest of our confession. Confession is just saying what God says about every situation. Begin this month finding out what He says about you and your life and say the same thing!
This is also a month assigned to the right foot.. a time to step out….. to 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.
IN CHRIST you HAVE ALREADY BEEN exalted above a defeated enemy. Walk triumphantly in what is yours in Him. Step out boldly knowing that the Greater One lives on the inside of you and leads you forth victoriously!!
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 also wind or breath. It is 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… 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 Holy Spirit to breathe upon you a refreshing…..for new revelation….for a quickened understanding of what is yours IN CHRIST.
It is the month assigned to the tribe 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 is what will keep your enemy down under your feet where he belongs.
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 (where His Presence dwelled) was 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. We are a people of praise…. we are His dwelling place.
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 barren 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 to 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 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! 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.
It’s a time to expect miracles not only in your life but signs, wonders and miracles working through you.
