Happy New Year! Sundown September 20 through sundown September 22 marks the Jewish New Year, called Rosh Hashanah. It is also known as the Feast of Trumpets because it is such a joyous time of celebration. During Rosh Hashanah, the shofar is blasted 100 times, creating over 300 sounds.
God spoke to me that each time the shofar is blasted this year on Rosh Hashanah, it will open and release new sounds from Heaven. Each of the sounds will contain new gifts, callings, anointings and creative works from Heaven, including music and new art.
And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. Revelation 14:2–3 NIV
Unlike other feasts and celebrations, this particular year’s is going to release the breath of the Lord. This anointed breath or wind from Heaven is going to be like the Ezekiel 37 dry bones experience for many people. It is going to blow upon those who have been in a hidden season and those who have been in the wilderness. It is going to awaken people who have felt like they missed God or have been in a dark night of the soul.
Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’” Ezekiel 37:9 NIV
When this sound and wind from Heaven blows upon the dry bones, it’s going to awaken you who have been waiting for the Lord.
I saw this happening 2 years ago at Rosh Hashanah as well. But God said this prophetic word is going to come into its fullness now.
I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth. Isaiah 62:6–7 NIV
God is restoring prophetic intercessors and He is raising up new watchmen on the walls. God showed me that it is the prophetic intercessors who have prevented many terrorist attacks, although they are not aware of this. Just as terrorists often operate in “sleeper cells” in which they are not aware of the actions of the other small cells, so it is with small prophetic intercession groups. Their efforts may go unnoticed and they often are not aware of the actions of other intercessors.
God is restoring the authority of the intercessors, as there is new power coming to reveal and stop the attacks of the enemy.
From September 20 through October 13, which is the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles, there are going to be greater levels of heavenly interaction. You can expect dreams, visions and an ability to hear the Lord more clearly.
This is a time to resist distraction and falling into worry or doubt. God is going to use this time to draw you closer to Himself!
