Chodesh Tov, or Good Month!
Welcome to the new Hebrew month of Adar in the year 5783! Adar begins at sunset on 2/21/23 and ends at sunset on 3/22/23. Purim also occurs this month on the 13th of Adar which is 3/6/23 on the Gregorian calendar.
Remember that one of the keys to walking in God’s blessings is to walk with an understanding of God’s calendar. His calendar is designed to help us stay in step with Him as we move through time. Each month is a prophetic season. Therefore, the goal is to live in sync with God’s timing, which enables us to enter into another level of connection with Him.
The letter associated with this month is Kuf. It is the 19th letter of the Hebrew alphabet and has a value of 100. Kuf represents a removal of the mask. No more hiding; to laugh in the face of fear. It’s knowing that God given JOY breaks through ALL barriers! An understanding that what was meant for harm, God is turning around for good! When Adar arrives, JOY increases! Rejoice this month! Evil wants you to be stuck in depression and isolation. But God wants you to be joyful! Take off the garment of heaviness and put on the garment of praise! The joy of the Lord is your strength; JOY is a weapon you can use to cast off the enemy! Take authority over your own life; you are no longer a victim!
The tribe that represents Adar is Naphtali. Jacob describes Naphtali as a leaping deer who has been set free. In Israel’s history, Naphtali rebelled against God and turned to idolatry, just like so many of us today. However, King Hezekiah reminded Naphtali in 2 Chronicles 30:9 “If you return to the Lord, the Lord your God is gracious and compassionate, and will not turn His face away from you if you return to Him.” When the remnant of Naphtali turned back to God, they broke the curse, the door of their future opened, and Jesus used Naphtali in a powerful way. Jesus started His ministry in the land of Naphtali. Most of His disciples were from the region of Naphtali. Most of his sermons were preached in Naphtali. Most of His miracles were performed in Naphtali. So this tribe lept forward under the power of Holy Spirit to spread the Gospel throughout the whole earth!
So remember, if you need a reset, or a clean slate, do as the remnant of Naphtali did…….repent and return to God because He is merciful and kind to forgive! He can launch you into a destiny far beyond anything you can imagine!
