Prophetic Word: A New Decree: Arise, Shine and Take Your Seat

by | Mar 17, 2022 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

Arise and take your seat sons and daughters, the King of kings has positioned you for such a time as this!

Purim, the Jewish holiday celebrating the new decree written of in the book of Esther, an edict allowing the freedom to defend oneself and take the plunder of enemies, has just passed. Purim in the Old Covenant is a time to recall the miraculous saving of the Jewish people, as Haman had an evil plot to annihilate the entire race. This plan would have been accomplished had it not been for Queen Esther speaking boldly on behalf of her people.

Consequently, Haman and his sons were hung on the very gallows he intended for the killing of the Jews. While we continue to remember history, the blessing of the New Covenant is that the King of kings has already delivered His sons and daughters and seated us with Him to continue to rule and decree for the salvation of the peoples. Much like Esther, He has raised us above the powers of the air and set us like stars in the sky to shine brightly in the dark of night (Luke 10:19, Eph. 2:6, Col. 3:1-3, 2 Tim. 2:12).

“To destroy, kill, and annihilate all the forces of any people or province that would assault them, both little children and women, and to plunder their possessions, on one day in all the provinces of King Ahasuerus, on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month of Adar” (Esth. 8:11b-12, NKJV).

“Then Queen Esther, the daughter of Abihail, with Mordecai the Jew, wrote with full power and authority to confirm this second letter about Purim. … The command of Esther established these customs for Purim, and it was written in the book [of the royal archives] (vs32)” (Esth. 9:29, 32, AMP).

A prophetic interpretation of this passage (Esth. 8:11-12) is that the name Esther in Hebrew means “star,” the number 8 represents “new beginnings,” the number 11 represents “a point in time which is nearly too late, last minute,” and the number 12 represents “governing” and being “sent.” And in Esther 9:29, 32, the number 9 represents “birthing,” the number 29 pertaining to Jesus’ lineage is a man called Salmon, who was the father of Boaz who married Ruth (application: father of redemption, restoration and new beginnings). He was the great-great grandfather of King David, and Salmon also means “garment” or “mantle.” Also in the number 29 on the Hebrew calendar, five out of 12 months always have 29 days in them, and the month of Adar in which Purim is celebrated is one of the five. The number 32 pertaining to Jesus’ lineage is Jesse the father of King David (application: father of Kings is on the scene, Father of the Beloved One), Jesse also means “husband” or “man.”

In summary, the Lord is calling His sons and daughters to the forefront, He has extended His favor toward you and given you the seal of His signet ring. The words of deliverance you decree according to His heart are sealed with all authority and final rule. This is the season of the rising of the new kings, the pure ones who will defend the peoples on behalf of the lineage of the King; they know what belongs to Him and understand the salvation of the people are His inheritance, “the earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof” (Ps. 24:1a, KJV).

In our time frame, it appears that it is nearly too late, but the Lord would say His glory has risen upon you for such a time as this. Shine brightly, for He is sending you forth in His name to make crooked paths straight, to tear down and rebuild, to remove obstacles and disciple nations in preparation for the return of the King. Wrap yourself in the mantle of humility, be clothed in the garments of righteousness, take dominion and rule with authority. The birthing of the new beginning and redemption is in the decree Queen Esther wrote with full power and authority to confirm the King’s new decree (Esth. 9:29). The establishing of the restoration of all things is our command, given by the authority of our husband under the governing leadership of the Father (Esth. 9:32).

Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And, deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. “Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant, And, your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you. The multitude of camels shall cover your land, The dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; All those from Sheba shall come; They shall bring gold and incense, And, they shall proclaim the praises of the Lord” (Isa. 60:1-6, NKJV).

Additionally, this is the prophetic word I released on “The Birthing of The New Wine in Fire, Power and Love” in 2020, which is to come during the Purim season/month of Adar. Adar means “strength” and is known as the most joyous month of the year, and is also a time of visitation from the Father, which I write about in this word. {eoa}
