Insights to 2016 and Hebrew year 5776
Just looking at what the Lord God has revealed about these years through the picture He paints by the Hebrew characters representing these numbers, and the numeric values.
In summary: It is about the work and creation of man, and particularly the rise of those who respond to God’s call countering the “works of man”, and his fallen nature. It will be a rising up of those called by God to expand His work, and the rebuilding and expanding of His tabernacle. It is about the establishment of His outer court, protecting His work, establishing His refuge, by expanding and restoring the walls of the city. The double of God comes to him who joins in this work. Having entered the open door to the hearts and homes of His people (particularly His ancient ones) the Father sets about restoring their hearts, and sends His Son out to meet them in the streets, and at the signs in the heavens involving sun and moon the harvest begins.
There is a grace of God, where double gates will be opened for those who seek to enter in to heaven’s gate (Bethel the house of God), where unity in God (according to His ordained quorum) is blessed as we join in true community with each other and the Lord. This is a coming away to the Lord, and involves the need to construct the outer wall, and to place the blood of Christ over the entrances.
We are still in the season of war, in natural and spiritual, involving battles between kingdoms. Press in for the warfare of heaven, knowing our weapons are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. Be alert, and pray, for the rest from kingdom wars on earth is at risk….man’s works will endeavour to rise up. The grace of God that brings an overflow of Him, Jesus Christ in us and His church, and thus being a sanctuary and answer in the season of war. A true place of rest, perhaps even from the season of war, where the battle strategy is to rest in Him. The works of man in the trading and financial systems in the world are completely vulnerable to the writhing of Leviathan as he is moved away from the church.
Watch for the King of kings, having entered the house of the hebrews, He prepares for the harvest. Expect to see a continued call to gather and watch for His return, and hearts of God’s people (Israel and perhaps even the Church) opened to receive a mighty move of God to enter in to our realm as preparation for Christ’s return. Again, watch for great harvest of Jews making a decision for Christ, and even a renewing of the relationship of Christians to Christ…the heavenly signs with sun and moons point to the beginning of this season.
20(16) – the year 16. 16 in Hebrew Yod (י) Vav ( or ו)
Yod (י) equal to 10: Is a picture of a arm and hand closed, or just arm and hand; resembling also a man in prayer. The meaning of yod being to work, throw, or worship.
The number 10 also speaks of God’s completeness, quorum, God’s order, and base number.
The symbol of Yod (י) speaks of His presence in all things, as that symbol is in all other characters of the Hebrew alphabet.
6 (Vav): or ו
Vav (ו) equal to 6: Is a picture of a tent peg or hook. Principally associated with the tabernacle (tent of God), and the hook (Ex. 27:9-10) that hung up the outer court curtain that went around (encloses) the tabernacle, but is also linked with the tent peg. The meanings include add, secure, hook, and fasten.
The number 6 has strong biblical associations with man (created on the 6th day), and the work of man – works for 6 days. The first Vav in the Bible (Torah) occurs in Genesis 1:1 and its placement suggests a joining of heaven and earth, and thus a connection between spiritual and earthly matters. It is also associated with divine hook between heaven and earth.
The hook revealed in Vav (Hebrew for 6), pointing to the ministry of the one who carries and is the hook of God…Enoch. The anointing that will be released, and ministry, is to join with God’s appointed hook bearer. The meaning of his name points to one dedicated and initiated by God, trained for a particularly ministry for the Lord, with the mouth, and who is the hook in the mouth. Perhaps more succinctly, one trained and dedicated by God, whose mouth is God’s weapon, and used by the Lord to hook the mouth of the enemy.
So we see the link with how the Lord will deal with Leviathan, who He reveals will be directed and led away by the line and the hook in its mouth (Job 41:1; Is. 19:8), and ultimately defeated by the Lord and in its writhing pain. Revelations reveals its fall also associated with the bringing down of spirit of Babylon (include the world financial systems). So expect to see the world’s financial systems shake even further in response to the hooking of Leviathan.
16 = 8+8 = Double gates
8 = Chet ( ) – picture of tent wall or fence; meaning outside, divide, half. As Chet is made by the joining Vav and Zayin by a thin line at the top, it is said to be also the doorway to life (as in representing door over which the blood of the lamb was placed), and the doorway of light from heaven.
Vav is said to general refer to man/and people; Zayin often associated with time; And thus in Chet they are joined and so seen as representing spending time in community. You can see then the gate of heavens opening such that we can enter in to community with each other in God’s house.
As eight is also the number of grace, and meaning new beginning, there seems to be an agreement in heaven with a grace of God to enter to gather in community in the gate of heaven. Bringing in Yod and Vav, and you also have the sense of been set up, and building the place of dwelling around His tabernacle…and in a place of worship and prayer (in unity).
5776 the next Hebrew year
Represented by Hey (5) Zayin (7) Zayin (7) Vav (6) – ה ז ז ו – as all Hebrew letters also represent numbers.
6 (Vav/Vaw – or ו): See previous section for meanings of Vav and 6.
5 (Hey): or ה
Hey (ה) equal to 5: Is a picture a man with arms raised. The meanings include look, reveal, breath, and behold. There is a particular sense of divine breath, revelation and light, and His creative power (ie. He spoke and it was). Gen. 1:3-4; Ps. 33:6).
The divine presence meaning of this character is also revealed when we look at the calling in to God’s purpose. When looking at the Hebrew, the introduction of He by God to Abram and Sarai creating Abraham and Sarah. This prefix to the names converting ‘a man’, to ‘the man’.
Also traditionally the character for He is said to be created when part (י – Yod) of Aleph (representing God) left to join the brokenness of humanity represented by Dalet, redeeming and bring God in man. Meaning opening the heart to the Spirit of God…and thus salvation and Christ in us. Aleph: א; Yod: י; Dalet: ד ; Hey: ה or הּ
5 is also seen in the Bible clearly, such as the 5 fold gifting (see Ephesians) of Christ; is the Apostolic number; and the full hand. Hebrew meanings also relating to 5 dimensions and the complete soul.
7 (Zayin): ז or ז
Zayin is a picture of a mattock or sword. Meanings include food, cut, and nourish. It is said to speak of war and food, and even warring for food.
7: Is the number of completion and rest, wholeness, and blessing.
Zayin also speaks of cutting time in to seven:
- Shabbat (Sabbath) – 7th day
- Shauvot = 49th day of Passover
- Tishri – 7th month of the Hebrew year
- Shemitah – 7th year of rest for the land
- Yovel – 49th
- Millenium kingdom – the 7th millennium of human history (week of millenniums).
Zayin (ז) is said to be a crowned Vav/Vau (ו or ו). (Vav representing man and a straight light from God to man). Zayin is therefore seen to represent returning light (of heaven), Crowned man; King, and King of kings.
The Hebrew Year is more often represented ‘Hey (5) Tav (400) Shin (300) Ayin (70) Vav (6)’ – התשׁעַו – utilising the addition of 400 and 300 to make 700 – thus 5776. The year can also be represented by ‘Hey (5) Nun (700) Ayin (70) Vav’ – ה עַו – utilising the final form of the letter Nun in the Hebrew alphabet, although this does not occur often, but is a legitimate way of representing the year.
Ayin (עַ) is a picture of an eye, with meanings of: watch, to see, discern, shade, understand, and know. Thus giving a sense of the prophetic watch, as well as knowing/seeing what is coming. Ayin is sometimes described as having two eyes that have a common optic nerve leading to the mind (will), and the sense you can have a good eye or bad eye, and the obvious choice is to look with a good eye (and in humility) – see Matt. 6:22,23.
Tav/tau (ת) is a pictograph of crossed sticks, and is associated with meanings of: mark, sign, sign post, monument, and the Cross (of Christ).
Shin/sin (שׁ/שׂ) is apparently a pictograph representing two front teeth, and is associated with meanings of: sharp, press, eat, and two. In looking at the meaning and the opicture for ‘tav’ as well, for me it is easy to see the Cross that bore our sins – represented by ‘Sin’, and the teeth on edge due to sin (Jer. ), and sharp nails that pierced our Saviours hands and feet. However having said that, in Judaism Shin also stands for the word Shaddai, a name for God. Look up for the coming of the Lord.
Nun (ן or נ) is a pictograph representing a seed, and has associated meanings of: seed, ‘son of’, heir, continue, son, faithfulness, and promised seed. Interestingly in Aramaic ‘Nun ‘also has the meaning of ‘fish’, and is this fish that was used as Greek symbol for Christ and Christians.
Hebrew Year 5776:
Thus we see (in the Lord) this year is:
- Of the double portion
- It is about the tension between the good work of God in His creation of man, and the work of man that is not of God. It is about the expanding work of God and His presence, not the work of man.
- About securing the protection around the house of God (tabernacle), having had the Lord entering the house of the open door (Yod joining Dalet to bring Hey) the year before (2015/5775)
- Signs at the end of 5775 will herald the harvest that begins in 5776 where God’s people turn their heart (afresh) to Jesus Christ.
- Of the overflow and double portion of the Lord in us; Double gates.
- Of nourishment and food
- Of war and warring for nourishment
- Of the sword (in the natural and spiritual), with the Sword of God (His word) triumphant.
- Of the Crowned King; Apostolic year. The Christ and His Sword.
- Watch and see the Lord entering the God work’s of man.
- Christ (who bore our sins in His body on the Cross of Calvary) is watching over His word to perform it, and see His Holy Spirit visit, invade, and fill the open doors of His house and His people.
- The Seed of God, Christ (or is God), watches of His Spirit as He enter the open doors, and perhaps even the sense of watch for the Lord to come and invade again humanity.
- Of rest and resting in the Lord.
- Where the House of God is the refuge from war, and who prayers counter war.
Sign post – End of Year 5775 and Beginning of 5776:
The 6th of September 2015 was a week out from beginning of new Jewish year 5776. The number and events providing a hint as to what will come.
6 2×3. 4+2.
9 3×3. 4+5. 8+1. 7+2
15 3×5. 9+6. 8+7…
6 + 9 = 15 ……… Happy numbering
Father’s Day; and Birthday – A day of double blessing – 7 days out from start of new Jewish year (5776). God is setting the scene for what is to come. All about three fold witness, trinity, double blessing, Christ’s governmental gifts, the creation of man that God calls good, and being careful about the works of man…in the season of two swords and two kingdoms. Keep the watch for Christ…prepare for His return.
Remember for 2015 and 5775….
Thus bring the two together, an amazing season where the double and even quadruple portion of God come of Him entering in to those with an open door to Him, and thus He overflows bring nourishment, creative miracles, rest, and transformation. Where the Apostolic release will be manifested in a greater order (and not just in the Church). One in amongst a season of warring in the natural and spiritual, and needing to wage war with the Sword of God against the outbreak of major wars that occur or are threatened. The grace of God bringing an overflow of Him in us and His church, and thus being a sanctuary and answer in the season of war. A true place of rest, and perhaps speaking of a season of rest from war.
We are also entering a period of the renewed watch (looking up) for Christ’s return, with a real sense we will see God entering His House. ..church, the Temple, and His people (Jews and Christians).
Season of the two realms – Hebrew decade 577(0-9)
When we consider this period we note the picture provided by God of ‘77’ (ז – Zayin ; ז – Zayin):
- In the natural realm we see kings waging war with each other
- In the kingdom of God realm (and way), we see kings in the Lord waging spiritual war and thus receiving nourishment and food.
- In the season we need to remember the King of kings (Christ) has victory in all things. This in the kingdom of heaven will have victory, and be places of refuge and nourishment.
Blood moons and 2015
Much has been written about the four (tetrarch of) blood moons that start around Passover in 2014 (15/4/14), then at Sukkot (8/10/14), followed by again by Passover the following year (4/4/15) and finally Sukkot of that year (28/9/15). All this with a full eclipse of the sun occurring 20/3/15 in Nissan. There is Hebrew tradition pointing to the moon as signs pertaining to people of Israel (and perhaps by extension the church), and the sun the whole world. This series of heavenly signs (Is. 13:10; Mk. 13:24,25; Joel 2:31; Acts 2:20) also occurring in 1492, 1948, and 1967, when major events have shaped the future of Israel.
When considering 2014 as the year of the open door, and 2015 as the year He enters the open door (of His house), there is certainly a sense that 2015 is going to be a big year, and perhaps see a great move of His Spirit and heaven on earth amongst His people, some suggesting even the return of Christ. Intercessory gatherings increasing as they found themselves called to watch/intercessory gatherings a year ahead of Passover in 5775 (2015) in response to the open door. Not only watching over the opening of the door this year, but His entering next year. These signs also speaking to the earth, and perhaps we should expect mighty event this year that will spring open stubborn doors, revealed ancient ones, or gentle moves as others simply response to Christ’s knocking at the door….allows His entering in.
Sense a strong movement of the Jews to Christ as their hearts open to Him, perhaps preceded by events/anointing bringing repentance that leads to such open hearts. This seems to be underlined given the knowledge that in Hebrew the character that represents (the Hebrew month) Nissan is Hei (also has value 5), and Nissan (meaning miracles from Nisan), also has the final form of Hebrew Nun (ן) in it (which has value 700) – all very much associated with year 5775. The world will see great miracles in Nissan (March/April) next year, and God’s people great redemption and salvation.
A mystery about the time to come
At the eclipse of the sun, and the double moons, so the harvest begins…
 Nisan is a month of miracles, as its name stems from the Hebrew word for “miracles” (ניסים). The fact that the name Nisan (ניסן) possesses two nuns (נ and ן) implies according to the sages to “miracles of miracles” (ניסי ניסים). Of the future redemption, it is said: “As the days of your exodus from Egypt, I shall reveal to him wonders.”
