(Humbly presented for your prayerful consideration and discernment with Christ Jesus and His Spirit).
The authoritative teacher, and the hook; the hunter and the hunted; harvest, and conflict (with fleeing); the preacher, and the cross; and, heavenly training and guidance. All this and more is revealed by the Holy Spirit in the numbers for 2030s and 5790, against the backdrop of a millennium characterised by grace, revelations and the house. Perhaps this points to the age of the Preacher and Teacher to come, one that brings a great harvest, and also a time of great persecutions. The Lord also revealing the 2030s also represents a period of greater manifestations of Christ on earth, compelling us to watch for Him. As much as religion, and the world systems and its authorities rejected Christ in His first coming, expect nothing different in this season. You might say, a war and a wedding feast will have their time and place.
Then Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him.Mark 1:17-18
What is to come in the decades ahead, more specifically in the one that follows the 2020s? Perhaps there is a hint in this present one, as it prepares us for tomorrow, as well as in the numbers and what they represent. Some have suggested there will be twenty years of prosperity thoughts, however that is not something that has not specifically jumped out to some of us on the watch, however I guess in God kingdom’s there will be those who prosper according to His normal will. Something to ponder.
For myself I see that the Lord God has revealed that in the 2020’s/5780s there is a sense of power in the Word, and new beginnings, leading to shift in to the season of preparation of the Bride and the coming Christ, which also involves a remnant who move in His power and love. However it is ‘out with the old, and in with the new’, to access this grace. But I also see a decade of great contrast, and conflict…but I have said enough about all that in another post, see here. I am sure others have greater insight.
But what about the following decade? As I watched with the Lord for this future, for sometime I have sensed the Holy Spirit reveal the 2030s (and Hebrew calendars 5790s) will be a powerful decade, or should I say will see powerful manifestations of Christ on earth. This does mean great contrast. Much more to say, but I am very aware I only see in part.
“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.Matthew 25:13
Pictures of the future
The 2030s also means the 5790s in the Hebrew calendar. Given God does reveals glimpses in to the future through the pictograph found in the Hebrew numbers (as a picture paints a thousand word), we can seek the Holy Spirit’s guidance, in the name of Jesus, for what He maybe revealing will come in the future decades. In addition, the Lord provides insights as we watch with Him for the coming ages…for He already know what is coming, and desires to reveal those things that prepare for its arrival by His prophetic grace.
Thirty, in Hebrew equates to the character ‘Lamed’, and paints an image and meaning of the teacher, and being goaded or provoked in to learning and guidance. You may say teaching with authority that provides guidance and leading. The ‘30s will be said to be the age of the preacher/teacher, expounding from heaven to earth the truths that bring salvation and a harvest of souls.
Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things. Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”Luke 24:46-49
The meaning of the Hebrew character for ninety (‘Tsade’), is quite interesting..and I am praying for greater insight. At one level it seems to paint a picture of the hunt, or the catch (as in fishing, and birds). The reference to the fish hook in its meaning is quite intriguing.
This reference to the fish hook, also brings to mind the character Enoch – from the root חנך (hnk)* . An interesting Seer Prophet, who (besides his close walk with the Lord and kingdom insights) seems to have been given the grace of the hook, to train and guide, and perhaps even able to lead Leviathan by the hook, through God. A ministry now some Seer prophets may also be graced with…by God’s grace.
There is also said to be a picture of the humble (one lying on the side), righteous ones, in Tsade and its associated meaning. Ultimately pointing to Christ, but also His saints. The humble and righteous of God on earth, being part of his foundations.
I sense that the other part of the meaning, is to be aware this is about the hunter and the hunted. So, while much of this seems to point to a grace for the harvest, and the righteous ones of Christ see a great catch, there is the duality that often seems to play out. The enemy also seeks to tap in to the hunt…so we need to be ready. As much as Christian may prosper as fishers of men, so the enemy will rise up as in Acts. Perhaps this may connect with the picture that others see – a knife at the back. Of come encouragement, in relation to this is the promises of God’s word, in that He will deal with those who secretly shoot at His saints, those blameless in Him. (Ps. 64).
So Jesus answered and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions—and in the age to come, eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”Mark 10:29-31
All this is revealed by the Holy Spirit against the backdrop of a millennium 2000s and 5000s, characterised by grace, revelations and the house, from the Hebrew characters of Bet (equating to 2), and Hey (equating to 5). With the added dimension of new eras of the watch for Christ and the the Cross, the price of sin, seeds, sons and daughters, and fish.
Trusting this adds a little to your insights, and that anything not of the Lord simply falls away. It will be interesting to see what others reveal for the coming decade. there is something in the above that is assistance.
* The related noun חכה (hakka) describes a fishing hook
The letter Tsade (or Tzadi), 18th letter of the Hebrew Aleph-Bet, having the numeric value of 90 – “fishing hook”, “a bird trap”, “to hunt, chase, catch, capture”; the righteous person, just; trail, journey
The tzaddik – the righteous person — is therefore revealed in the letter form as a faithful servant with his arms raised before the LORD in humility. As such, some of the sages have said that the letter Tsade represents the tzaddikim (righteous ones) that are the yesod (foundation) of the earth
Speaks of righteousness in humility, the righteous of God on earth; Fish hook, fishing, hunt, trap, chase; (to chase and hunt), and be hunted!. The humble righteous who dedicated, and trained, in the word, are the fishers of men, and see harvest. Such ones can train with the hook, even Leviathan. Watch for those who hunt, and trap.
Enoch – From the root חנך (hnk) – Inaugurated, Trained
The root חנך (hnk) deals with the beginning of discernment, which is the beginning of wisdom: discernment via taste, which is the first discernment and thus mode of wisdom a baby learns (hence the many Biblical metaphors that equate wisdom with food or milk).
The noun חך (hek) means mouth as the seat of taste (the more common word for mouth, namely פה, peh, emphasizes the mouth as orifice). From the noun חך (hek) comes the verb חנך (hanak), to “mouth,” i.e. to inaugurate, train or dedicate. Likewise, adjective חניך (hanik) means trained or experienced. Noun חנכה (hanukka) means dedication.
Noun חכה (hakka) describes a fishing hook, or a hook that grabs a prey’s jaw, or rather a prey’s sense of taste. Perhaps accidentally similar, but perhaps not, the verb חכה (haka) means to wait or await for, and particularly to wait for sustenance. Often this verb’s object is the Creator, or the sustaining insight in the Laws of the Creator.
“Can you draw out Leviathan with a hook, or snare his tongue with a line which you lower? Can you put a reed through his nose, or pierce his jaw with a hook?”Job 41:1-2
Remembering the Hebrew meanings for 5700:
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.
Note: Often alef (א) is said to equal 1000, and many dates simply assume the millennium e.g. 5000, 4000, 3000, 2000, 1000 etc. Others suggest א׳ (yod, alef) also equals 1000.
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) Zayin (7)’ – ז התשׁעַ – 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) Zayin (7)’ – ה נ עַ ז – 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) – 700 – 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.
700 could also represented by 7 (Zayin) x 100 (Qof). Where QoF talks of sun on the horizon, revolution, circle, horizon, time, complete; or, sewing needle, eye of the needle, nape of neck, monkey. Noting that in modern Hebrew there is no distinction between Qof and Kaph.
Lamed, generally meaning teach(er). Yoke, authority, bind, Shepherd’s Staff. The verb למד (lamad) means learn or teach. Derivative תלמיד (talmid) means scholar (hence Talmud), and derivative מלמד means ox goad. The letter lamed is said to look like such a device. Provoking to learning, and like an arrow perhaps, piercing the heart with the word of God, bringing understanding.
Remembering the Hebrew meaning of 2000:
Bet (ב) – House, House of God, House of prayer, Family, In, Temple
Hebrew for 1000 – א׳ (yod, alef) – and associated word is (elef) אֶלֶף. Note: Often alef is said to equal 1000, and many dates simply assume the millennium e.g. 2000, 1000 etc.
Yod (י) also equal to 10: Is a picture of an 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. Also speaks of the hand and potential of God. The number 10 also speaks of God’s completeness, quorum, full council/court 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.
Aleph (א): Equal to 1, the pictographs is of an ox head, with meaning of strong, power, leader; Generally related to God (before all things), the Father, One and Only God; In the beginning; Unity; Names of God (e.g. El, Elohim); God-man unity. First things.
