Day 29 - It is Expedient for You!

Dearly Beloved,

Jesus says in, John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter (Helper) will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. It's time for new wine, a fresh infusion of the third person of the Trinty, Holy Spirit. 

Get Under the Spout of Heaven,

Sharon

It Is Expedient for You!

It’s the 29th day of Rend the Heavens. This number also has a prophetic meaning for today’s message.  

  • 2 = witness, harmony (union) its Hebrew letter bet = house or dwelling - a holy habitation. (Eph. 2:20-22). 

  • 9 = symbolizes divine completeness or conveys the meaning of finality (Jesus died on the 9th hr.) also fruit of God's Holy Spirit (Gal. 5:22 - 23) and the gifts of the Holy Spirit ( I Cor. 12)

  • 9 - Hebrew  letter tet womb, visitationnew wine. Pictorially its ancient form resembles a basket, womb, and even a coiled snake. There’s good and evil associated with the number 9. 

  • 20 = waiting with expectancy, its Hebrew letter is kaf = hand or palm from karah to bend or bow. 

We are in the Hebraic year of 5779 a tet year representing fulfillment, concealment, fruitfulness and multiplication. The devil (that snake) may throw his worst, try to squeeze the life out of us, but we will see clearly, overcome, flourish, prevail and power through with the Word of the Lord, prayer and praise anyway.
5779 is also a year for new wine to flow, a fresh flow of God’s Spirit is being made available to His people.

We have entered week 5 of Rend the Heavens, 22 days from now will be Pentecost. During the remaining days we will learn of the Holy Spirit; the Third person of the trinity, one with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is the agent from which another great awakening will come. If we want to be used in this coming outpouring we must come to know the Spirit better, to become more personally acquainted with His acts and ways. Jesus told us in John 16 that it was expedient that He went back to Heaven so the Holy Spirit could be released upon the earth.

Let’s Become Better Aquatinted With Holy Spirit

Jesus says in, John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter (Helper) will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you [into close fellowship with you]; but if I go away, I will send Him to you [to be in close fellowship with you]. (AMP)

But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I don’t go away, the comforting Counselor will not come to you. However, if I do go, I will send him to you. (CJB)

But the truth is that My departure will be a gift that will serve you well, because if I don’t leave, the great Helper will not come to your aid. When I leave, I will send Him to you. (Voice)
