Hebraic Month of Av
HEBRAIC MONTH: Av (Means: “Father”, derived from root word: “to will, to desire”)
Example: Tamar SCRIPTURES: Genesis 38, Numbers 13, 14.
The meaning of Tamar is “Palm Tree” referring to the ability to weather storms and be able to flourish even in the hardest conditions. Some palms are likened to the hand with the leaves coming out from a stem. The tallest Palm trees are in Columbia (which is in this “Gate”) that grows to almost 200 feet tall. The Palm has the largest seed of all the plants on the earth, up to 20 inches in diameter and 66 pounds in weight! Tamar had heard the promise that kings would come through the tribe of Judah. She knew it was her destiny. She refused shame and moved into what she knew was hers and the seed she carried brought forth the King of kings! King David and Jesus Christ our Messiah was from the tribe of Judah! The birth of the twins she carried was a hard one with a fight within the womb of who would come first.
5th Month: Grace, favor; redemption; five fold ministry offices; freedom, hand, atonement.
HEBRAIC ALPHABET: TET (resembles a womb, also “a twisting, a coiling, a snake”)
THEME: This month is a time to watch over what you hear, guard your promises and choose the good report. This is also a month for the Divine will of the Father to be released to change situations or to rebuild them. There is much conceived this month, be watchful what you allow. It was in the month of Av that the spies gave good and evil reports of the land. What they listened to and received birthed consequences that affected them and their generations. Tamar, as our example, chose to agree with promise that also affected generations!

OVERVIEW: Tamar the 36th great, grandmother of Jesus giving birth to Perez (“Breakthrough”) and his twin brother Zarah (“Rising Light”). A scarlet cord was tied to Zarah’s arm by the Midwife thinking he was coming out first and was the firstborn. But Zarah retreated and Perez was born first. “Rising Light” will reach out first before “Breakthrough” comes to a life or an area. The “Midwife” aides in the birthing of both through the redeeming blood of Christ which “scarlet” represents. DECORATING/IDEAS: Red Ribbon ideas (as a red cord was tied to Zarah’s wrist.) Each Woman/Widow gets a red ribbon of intercession, as “Midwives”. Or give out garden seeds to represent what we are sowing in prayer.
