Prophecy: This Is a Time for Divine Alignments

by | Jul 8, 2019 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

The Lord began to speak to me about the fact that in this month of July, He was bringing His people into a time of divine alignments. As the Hebrew New Year or Head of the Year 5780 is coming on Sept. 29, 2019 at sundown, when Rosh Hashanah begins, we will be entering a time of double portion! This is amazing news, but this also means that God will be expanding and strengthening our current foundations so we can handle a heavier load on the foundation of our lives.

Now, when would God begin to do this?

He would begin about three months before the new year would start so that He could tear down, uproot, and rebuild. In Ecclesiastes 3:1, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” If you are going to be putting new levels on a home, the foundation must be strengthened. We just entered the Hebrew calendar month of Tammuz, which is the fourth month on the religious or ecclesiastical calendar year, and the 10th month on the civil calendar. This is the right time for strengthening the foundations.

One of the foundations that God is working on this month is relationships. He is going to begin to shift your relationships to accommodate the weight of double portion that is coming around Rosh Hashanah time. This means you will begin to meet new people that God fashioned into the plan of your life before the foundation of the world that would be divine connections for this time and season. He is also going to be removing some people that you no longer need for this new season that would’ve required a lot of management on your part. Whenever double comes you have to be ready! Now not all of the relationships will be totally set aside, it may just be that you will not spend as much waking time with some people that you have in the past. Instead of coffee everyday with them, it might be coffee once a month. That is okay. Do not be nervous about these changes, God needs you to follow His lead and begin to change some of these things as new alignments are needed at this time for kingdom advancement.

These new alignments or divine connections are God’s realignment patterns for His purposes. God is always advancing His kingdom. Psalm 121:2-4 says, “My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who guards Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” Since He never sleeps, He is always changing things to move His kingdom forward.

So, how will God make these divine alignments for kingdom advancement?

The Lord has been sharing with me that He will go before us as in Isaiah 45:2 (NASB), “I will go before you and make the rough places smooth; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars.” The NIV translation says, “I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron.” This month God wants to go before you into the new places He is calling you to advance in the year 5780. He wants to be, “the one who goes before you.” That word “before” in the Hebrew is the word paniym which means, “face, countenance, favor.” So, if He says He will go before you this month, then He is preparing the way to be your very own face, favor and countenance. Now that means He is going to go before you in these divine alignments. He will be putting your name on certain people’s hearts and mouth’s so that they will contact you. He will be putting a picture of your face in their minds so they will think of you and reach out to you. And the same for you, as you begin to see faces of people or hear names in dreams, visions, and prayer, you need to call them out and reach out to them because they may be part of the divine alignments God is making for you. In Revelation 3:8b (KJV), we read about what the Spirit of the Lord said to the angel of the church at Philadelphia, “I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it.” God has set these doors before you for His purposes and no man can shut them. God will go before you through each of these doors of divine alignments and connections.

Now, what is another reason He would do that this month?

Well since this is the Hebrew month of Tammuz, historically this is when the Israelites waited at the base of Mt. Sinai for Moses to come down with the law only to find that the people begin to pull together all of their gold and silver to make a golden calf. Exodus 32:1 (NIV) says, “When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said, ‘Come, make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.'”

That same Hebrew word “before” is paniym. They were actually thinking of letting an idol or false god be the one that goes before them. That means they were thinking the golden calf would be their face, favor and countenance. They had forgotten they were children of God, as they were substituting the God of the universe to go before them for their own false gods. They had forgotten their identity and were looking for something to pave the way ahead and be a god that they could follow. If one goes before you, then you must follow.

The danger this month, is that we could choose to allow our false idols to go before us. We could misinterpret the past relationships that were designed by God for just one season, or if those past alignments met our basic needs, then we would want to hold on to them for fear of the unknown. Responding this way means we may miss the new divine alignments God has designated for favor this season. When humans build idols, we build them out of lack. No one builds an idol when they feel they are abundant and without need. If you know who you are and whose you are, you will be less likely to put your life into things that are not purposeful and kingdom focused. The Israelites revealed this, only in their lack did they build a golden calf. Only in their insecurity of who they were as a nation and where God was in all this identity confusion did they make an idol and actually think it would be one that had the power to go before them. They were about to elevate a false image and it would go before them as their very own face or identity.

In Exodus 20:3 (KJV), the Word reads, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” This commandment means only God is to be the one we worship. We must be aware we have a bent as humans to put other gods before Him, or He would not have told us that. So we must be mindful. In the waiting period or the period of divine alignments, we must have God go before us in all of the relationships we make this month. We must trust in Him to connect us to the right people for His kingdom advancement and for His building purposes as we approach the new year. We must not hang on to co-dependent relationships or addictive relationships or even good relationships that take up too much time and distract us from the bigger picture of kingdom advancement.

Let us remember this month, the same weakness that befell the Israelites could be our weakness if we are not ready to move with God by submitting to Him to be our face which is His very own favor and countenance which will go before us. We can see amazing things happen if we ask God in prayer to take His rightful place in our hearts and go before us so we can follow him strong to New Year 5780. {eoa}
