On Monday evening we gathered for Rosh Hashanah 5780 – the Feast of Trumpets – to the sounds of passionate worship and the blasts of the shofars.
We understand that the Hebrew Feasts, it’s calendar, and the nation of Israel itself, are governing factors in the times and seasons of the earthly.
5780 begins not only a new year, but also a new decade; the ‘decade of the mouth.” Our words – prayer, confessions, declarations – are vital, and we desire to align them much more in this season with heaven.
As those who are made in God’s image we are not just created beings, but also creative beings, where words play a significant part. We can, like Abraham, call those things which are not as though they are, and like Ezekiel, call for the gathering of that which has been scattered.
In Revelation, we find Jesus Himself sounding like a shofar and calling John I higher into heavenly places. As we move forward into this new year let’s seek to pray and declare from that place too, bringing the heavenly into the earthly. We say, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.”
