Widen Your Mouth in the New Year 5780/2019

Tishri 1, Day31 of 40 days of Teshuvah (Repentance)

Rosh Hashanah is on the first day of the month Tishri according to Leviticus 23:23-25, Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath- rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’ ”

The seventh month is Tishri, the first day celebrate the Feast of Trumpets. But Tishri is also in the Civil Calendar, the First Month. It is called the Head of the Year. So today we celebrate the new Year 5780, Rosh Hashanah.

This day is also the birthday of the creation of heaven and earth in Genesis 1. In Genesis 1 God spoke 10 things into existence. As I have already blogged yesterday on FB and http://www.wellspringisrael.com we begin today the New Year and the Decade of Declaration. Open you Mouth Wide Open and declare the promises of God. Here are 3 ways you can widened your Mouth:

1. Praying Sciptures: Years ago I prayed with a man who when he prayed quoted scripture after scripture. His name was David Hysong. I asked him how he did it? He said, “I memorize scripture every week.”

2. Your Personal and Private Worship: Including Bible Reading daily. Did you know that according to ancient Jewish Sages there is a Psalms for every year of your life? So if a person is 80 years of age they would read Psalms 81 for that year. You are born and live for year then you celebrate your birthday at the end of the first year. So the day you celebrate your 80th you have begun your 81st year.

3. Meditate Upon Scripture: This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success” (Joshua 1:8). The Hebrew word used here for “meditate” is hagah, which means literally, “to utter— to murmur, mutter, to make a sound (it can even mean “to moan” or “to growl”!).

Joshua was instructed to implement non-stop speaking (declaring) of truth as he prepared to possess what God had already given through promise. God told Joshua that the Word should not depart from his mouth—not only his heart, his peh—his mouth! Joshua’s mouth must continually be speaking or murmuring the word of the Torah—divine instruction! For then would his way be prosperous, and then he would have success!

Psalm 1:2 uses this word in the same way regarding the man who walks in God’s blessing: “But his delight is in the law (Hebrew: torah—“instruction”) of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season…whatever he does, he prospers.”

The righteous man or woman speaks God’s law night and day. He does not just read it or study it. He speaks it aloud! There is power in this! Our declarations help secure our inheritance. Shalom!

Decade of Declaration

ELUL Day 30 THE DECADE OF DECLARATION

Today is the last day of the Biblical month of Elul. It is the last day of Hebrew year 5779 and the last year of the Decade 5770 through 5779. Those who know what the Spirit is saying and set their days upon the season, timing, and days to the Feasts of the Lord realize today is a weighty day of God’s Holy Presence as we close the door on the Decade and year of Eye which is the letter of Ayin in Hebraic Alphabet.

Tonight at sundown we enter into the New Year of 5780 and new Decade of 5780 through 5789 which in Gregorian Calendar is 2020 through 2029. The Hebrew language is so colorful and pictorial in meaning deeper than our English language. The Number “80” is a picture of a mouth wide open. So starting tonight we enter in the year and decade of the

MOUTH WIDE OPEN!

Pey” is the Hebrew letter for the number 80, a picture symbol of a mouth. Discerning when to speak and when to be quiet will be a critical component during the next decade if we are to see the Kingdom of God growing in our lives and our world through our declarations of faith. “Ayin” gives insight, but it is the “Pey” (mouth) that gives insight expression. Wisdom is the key.

The mouth is the expression of the breath. Through our mouths the breath becomes vocalized. The main channel through which breath is exchanged is through the mouth, thus the mouth becomes a powerful expression of the Breath of the Holy Spirit. It can also become a powerful expression of our own breath. In the Hebrew alphabet “Pey” follows “Ayin,” which emphasizes that sight precedes expression. Those who have spent a great deal of time seeing what God is saying should have no difficulty in the next decade also expressing His thoughts in word and deed. Conversely, because the eyes are more emphasized than the mouth, those who are blind will speak blindly, an unceasing mindless chatter due to blind consumption.

What Should we Declare in this New Year:

1. Declare the Impossible IS Possible!

2. Declare I am the Righteousness of God!

3. Declare Thy Will Be Done!

4. Declare Prayer is powerful! A Prophetic Word to the Church

The saints in Heaven are asking the army on earth to pray, not to retreat, or to leave the Church but to Pray for Her. To hold fast against the assails of the devil of which the gates of hell will not prevail! (Matthew 16:17-19).

Declare with me “I will widen my mouth in prayer to you O’ Lord! I will widen my mouth in repentance. I will widen my mouth against the lies and tactics of the enemy. I will widen my mouth to stand firm against the onslaught of hell against my family, church, and Nation. I will widen my mouth to pray for your Bride, your shepherds in the earth, and all your holy anointed ones. Grant me the Grace in prayer to stand firm until the Last Day.”

Last Night of Biblical Year 5779

Tonight while sitting on our back porch after blowing the shofar and praying Debbie said something profound, “Since this is the last night of the biblical year 5779, the last night of the Biblical Decade of 5770 through 5779, and the last day of the Biblical month of Elul, when the King is in your field (read the book of Ruth), what do you want to ask King Yeshua?”

Exuberant Declaration of Faith

ELUL Day 15

The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell. Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident. One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord , And to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

Psalm 27:1-5

Radical Discipleship

ELUL Day 13

The Biblical month of Elul is about Discipleship. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. On Wednesday we celebrated 9/11. A small group of men, in the hundreds did this because they believed their Koran. They did this because of their faith. Evil though it may be it was because of dedication. If we don’t disciple our children someone and somebody will. Our next door neighbors are Mormon. Their oldest son gets up every morning to go to seminary at 6:30 before school to learn scriptures and the Book of Mormon. Wow what dedication! How many Christian families have this kind of purposeful discipline to teach their children the Scriptures.

Speaking of 9/11, Rabbi Joseph Shulman said, “This is reality! What can we, the disciples of Yeshua, Jews and non-Jews, do to change this sad and very destructive reality that is besetting the whole human race around the world? Here are some good principles that I want to share with you that might help.

A half-hearted man can never succeed to win a war with a fully dedicated and wholehearted person![ quote] The dedication factor is as important as having a better weapon and better trained soldier.

A “milk-toast” Christianity that is promoting halfhearted, weak, and soft, half-dedicated Christians will never win a battle with someone who is really willing to die, explode himself, in order to show his dedication and commitment to his god.

Reading the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, you see that God demands His servants and communities to be singleminded and totally dedicated to the God, our Father, the Creator of the Universe. And to be motivated by love for humanity. What could be clearer than the demand of Yeshua from His disciples:”

“He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.” – Matthew 10:37 [NKJV]

Shalom!

Helping A Stranger Change a Tire

ELUL Day 12

We are in the Biblical Month of Elul. This is the month to be kind, thoughtful and courteous to everyone including the stranger. At Yom Kippur which is October 9, 2019 according to Hebrew understanding, God looks at our book of records to determine whether we live or die, receive blessings, and walk in favor for the new year 5780. So during this month we should make sure we have done the least of commandments of caring even for the stranger like Yeshua’s parable to the young Lawyer and the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37. Another words, take time to help change a strangers tire. Or any other help for a stranger.

May you walk in the blessing, grace and mercy, and favor of our Lord. Shalom
