HEBRAIC MONTH: Tammuz
(means “son of Light”)
Months of June and July
During Tammuz Moses was receiving the 10 Commandments and was made aware that the Children of Israel had turned away from God and had made a golden calf to worship. Moses smashed the tablets on the 17th of Tammuz and dealt with their disobedience. From the 17th of Tammuz to the 9th of Av there is a time of repentance. Tammuz is a month of revelation but also a time to guard your heart.
SCRIPTURES: Luke 7:11-17; Exodus 32:19, 20.
Example: Widow of Nain (Resurrection power…Widows crying out; Young adults awakening to their destinies).
4th Month: The number four speaks of the four corners of the earth, borders and territory. It’ also represents God’s creative works; number of seasons, tides, winds and directions. (Transition of moving from one season or area to another).
HEBRAIC ALPHABET: “Chet” means “protective fence or courtyard”. Chet is also used in the concept of “locking and sealing”. It is the 8th letter in the Hebraic alphabet representing a new beginning.
THEME: The Gate, Seeing the Widow and Rising up sons of Life! This is a month to guard your heart and eye gates. It is a time to take territory, by looking and perceiving correctly. When Jesus saw the widow of Nain and was moved with compassion, He awakened the fatherless to his destiny…and the territory of Nain and the whole region opened up to Him! It’s a time for the widows to open the four corners up so that our regions ‘see the Son’!
TRIBE: Reuben, whose name means “See, a son! A new beginning” comes from two Hebrew words. The first “raah” which means “to see, consider, look, to perceive”. And secondly, the word “ben” meaning “a son, (as a builder of a family name), anointed one.” Reuben did not guard his heart and fell into sin which resulted in him losing his firstborn inheritance. But he had a redemptive side too and watched over his brothers. Rueben was the one who convinced his brothers into putting Joseph in a pit instead of killing him, planning to let him go later. This tribe was very passionate and great warriors.
GATE: Damascus. This is the region where Yeshua (Jesus) appeared to Saul in a great light and transformed him into the apostle Paul. Not only did he write much of the New Testament but God used him to bring salvation to the Gentiles.
