Receive the Baptism of of Fire
We begin week 7 our last week of Counting the Omer. This week our focus is the Holy Spirit working in our lives and nation. It's day 43; 43 is the biblical number of contention. The number is written in Hebrew as 40 - mem (water flowing, coming forth) and 3 - gimel (is a camel, signifying elevation or glorification to a position of authority - Pride is its negative connotation.)
Because of this, we see the number 43 intertwined with Scriptures dealing with men contending for positions of authority...this so depicts the nation at this time.
Matthew 3:11 Amp. I indeed baptize you in (with) water because of repentance [that is, because of your changing your minds for the better, heartily amending your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins]. But He Who is coming after me is mightier than I, Whose sandals I am not worthy or fit to take off or carry; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
Year of the Fire of Holy Spirit
The Spirit of the Lord gave this prophetic word for 2017. As we yield to the Holy Spirit this year we can see our lives transformed and our destinies realized. We can also begin to build those things which the Lord has put upon our hearts. We can become the planting of the Lord in the earth. Gods divine order and rest are being made available to us this year.
In this year of breakthrough, divine reversal's can occur in our lives and nation. We can be empowered with the sevenfold Spirit of God and be infused with the fire of God..
This is the year of the firebrands; a person who is passionate about a particular cause, typically inciting change and taking radical action. A firebrand can also be someone who creates unrest or strife (as in aggressively promoting a cause).
We can be a firebrand for good or for evil. The enemy has been stirring up people to create unrest, riots, etc. rebellion is manifesting in the streets in our nation and around the world. The sole objective is to keep our nation from reforming.
Beware, this is the year of the schemer / plotter. We must not be caught unaware the enemy is roaring the earth seeking those he can manipulate to do his bidding.
An invitation from the Lord is being released for us to be firebrands / instruments of reformation in this hour. We are not to get caught up in the chaos but release the Shalom of the Lord.
We must allow the complete work of reformation to be finished in our lives. We must not resist the plumbline of the Lord this year it is meant to bring divine order into life. As we properly align with his divine blueprint we will see things we have been longing for come to fruition.
The Lord is poised to aid us, to work on our behalf, angelic host are at the ready to assist us in this reformation process... it is not by our might or by our power but by the Holy Spirit we will see the full transformation in our lives and in this land.
Beloved, Believe in the Lord your God and you shall be established; believe and remain steadfast to His prophets (prophetic voice) and you shall prosper. Receive a fresh Be baptized of Holy Spirit and Fire!
Ablaze for Him,
