A Door is Open
It's day 44; this number is made from 2 numbers. 40 - mem (water flowing, coming forth) and 4 - daleth (a door = opening, entry, pathway).
In biblical numerology, four is the number of the earth, or the material creation of God. On the fourth day of creation the material world was finished (Gen. 1:14-19), thereby allowing God to furnish it with living creatures.
Ezeliel 44:4And He brought me by the way of the north gate before the house. And I looked, and, behold, the glory of Lord filled the house of Lord. And I fell on my face.
- Glory - kabob H3519: splendor, glorious; to make weighty.
The Spirit of the Lord says, there is a coming forth of My glory. A door - a portal has opened over the earth My glory shall be seen, it shall rain down. Open your eyes and see what I am doing throughout the earth look at Israel and America for they are a sign to you. Israel is celebrating its 50th year of reunification as a nation and its during this time your president chose to visit the land; this is not by accident says the Lord. Behold, watch and see its Jubilee time for My people! My glory shall manifest upon the earth! Look not at the darkness, look not at the chaos, don't heed the words of a men that are spewing discord throughout the earth. Listen to Me, open your eyes and see for I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe even if I told you says the Lord. Watch and See!
I came across a prophetic word entitled '2017 A Year of God’s Awakening The Nations and the Return of His Glory' by Bonnie Jones that bears witness with what I believe the Lord is speaking for this year. Here is a portion of that word that speaks about the glory of the Lord. To read the entire prophetic word use the link at the end of today's devotion.
Shekinah Glory by Bonnie Jones
In a dream I was shown a portal of the Shekinah glory beaming through dark heavy clouds. As I was driving down an unfamiliar road, an old holy man riding with me kept telling me to look at it. Although it was beautiful I could not keep my eye on the road ahead if I turned backwards to see it. Therefor I only caught a glimpse because it was a serious distraction. I felt he represented old-time religion that was still looking at the former glory. However when I continued straight ahead and kept on course, the sky opened up and there was the most magnificent Shekinah glory portal bursting through the dark low hanging clouds. The portal separated the darkness and God’s glorious light shone forth. The latter glory could not compare to what my eyes were experiencing.
The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.” (Haggai 2:9)
Then the Lord said, “As the glory returned to Israel so shall it return to My body. I do this as a sign of My love for My people. I have set people over My house to rule and reign and in this season you are going to see anointed ones rise to their divine calling. Many are still walking according to man’s design however this year I make clear their mandate and they choose to follow Me. Amen.”
I believe we are going to see the return of God’s glory beginning this year and increase each following year. The key here is to keep our focus on Him and don’t get distracted. It’s time to put away foolish things and embrace Jesus with a whole heart. Many people mean well but often times bring distraction that will get us off course and keep us from entering in to His presence. The body must better discern what the Spirit inspires and what is sent by the enemy to distract. Keep your eyes on Jesus and enter into His glorious Light.
A Year of His Favor
2017 is a turn-around year and a year of His favor. Embrace all that God initiates and discard the rest. Walk in His presence and glorify Him in all you say and do. Don’t look to the past for answers; keep an eye on His glorious future. We have opportunity right now to declare the promises of Isaiah 61:1&2 because The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, Because the Lord has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To grant those who mourn in Zion, Giving them a garland instead of ashes, The oil of gladness instead of mourning, The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. ...(Isaiah 61:1-2 NASB)
Watch this year as the nations of the world come alive in the holiness of the Father, the love of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit. Watch what happens as the Shekinah glory returns and sparks the spirit of revival around the globe. Watch as salvations increase and the wealth of the wicked are turned over to the righteous.
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14 NKJV)
