The month of Tishrei is the first month of the civil calendar year and the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year on the Hebrew calendar. It is also called the Head of the Year or the "month of beginning." It starts on Tuesday, Sept. 6, at sundown and is a celebration called Rosh Hashanah or Feast of Trumpets. It is the beginning of Hebrew New Year 5782, which means 5,782 days since the creation of Adam and Eve.
Tishrei is a Hebrew month in which three feasts take place, which are the Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement and Feast of Tabernacles. On Rosh Hashanah, the first day of Tishrei, what is called the Ten Days of Awe begins, which goes until Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. The Days of Awe are 10 days of repentance, prayer, fasting and cleansing to prepare one's heart for the Day of Atonement, which starts Wednesday, Sept. 15 at sundown until Thursday, Sept. 16, at sundown. It is the highest holy day of the year to the Jews. It is a day we who believe in Jesus as Messiah remember that He sprinkled His blood on the mercy seat in the heavenly tabernacle.
This is followed by the third feast, which is Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkot and begins sundown on Monday, Sept. 20, and ends at sundown on Monday, Sept. 27. This feast is highlighted for the Jews, as they remember building booths or shelter when the Lord called them to live in the wilderness. For those who believe in Jesus, we remember that Jesus tabernacles among us and is our provider.
Each feast is a recognized, appointed time set aside by God where we come to meet Him.
God has given me a special word for Hebrew year 5782 that I want to share with you. The numbers 5-7-8-2 are biblical numbers that mean grace, perfection, new beginnings and double portion. God has shared with me that this year, we're going to see double glory come into the earth. In Habakkuk 2:14 (KJV), the Scripture reads, "For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea."
The Hebrew word knowledge is da'ath, which is broken down to the word "yada." Yada means to know as in seeing: as in recognition through a variety of senses; as in observation and care; and even friend, famous, kinsfolk or kinsman. We all know a kinsman redeemer who gave His life that we might live; that is Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. In other words, when the earth is going to be filled, it's going to be filled to fullness with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, which comes from a knowledge of Jesus as our Redeemer. He is the one who has saved us from our sins and reconciled us to relationship with the Father by His shed blood on the cross.
That word glory in the Hebrew is the word kabod, which means the weighty presence of God, splendor and honor. This is broken down to the word kabad, which means weighty in a good sense, numerous, rich, honorable, abounding, as in reference to nobles or nobility. We will know the fullness of our kinsman redeemer's weighty presence and His splendor and majesty, as we come to know His nobility and bow to it in the earth realms.
This is for those who have ears to hear: A mighty sound of the glory of the King of kings is coming forth. His nobility and majesty will be experienced by us in a greater way. Yes, the earth is in a desperate place, and our culture is weak and overrun, but we will grow in the knowledge of our kinsman-Redeemer and all He has done so we can walk in double glory in 5782. We have seen some glory in the earth, but I believe as the people of God really connect with His heart for them, no matter their circumstances, they will step into a greater knowledge of the Lord; and it will become a roar.
Double glory is coming in 5782. God is making a way! He has prepared your heart to receive more and more of Him. Please share this good news with some people who need to hear it. Remember Christ in you is the hope of glory in the earth today, and double glory is coming!
