Long before America had a calendar, the Jewish people had the Hebrew calendar. The Hebrew or Jewish calendar is a lunisolar calendar used today predominantly for Jewish religious observances. It determines the dates for Jewish holidays and the appropriate public reading of Torah portions, and daily Psalm readings, among many ceremonial uses. In Israel, it is used for religious purposes, provides a time frame for agriculture and is an official calendar for civil purposes, although the latter usage has been steadily declining in favor of the Gregorian calendar. The month of May in the Gregorian calendar is the month of Iyar also known as Issachar in the Hebrew calendar. What does this mean?
The Month of Issachar is Your Time! Issachar means rewards, recompense! Throughout the history of ancient Israel, the tribe of Issachar is portrayed as a family that was destined to prosper both physically and spiritually. The ancient Rabbis taught that the sons of Issachar were not only “mighty men of valor” (1 Chron. 7:1-5), but they were also called to serve the other tribes in the areas of finance and the ministry of God’s Torah. Issachar’s allotment of the Promised Land primarily consisted of the valley of Jezreel. This was the richest farm land in all Israel, which also had access to the Mediterranean Sea. Consequently, the sons of Issachar “drew out the abundance of the sea and the hidden treasures of the sand” (Deut. 33:18-19).
How do you know when you’re in time, out of time, missed your time, ahead of time or have no idea what time it is? All it takes is to possess a precious piece called a WATCH. God has a time for everything and He doesn’t leave you guessing what time it is – that wouldn’t be right. So let’s get you the watch and within minutes you will know what time it is on God’s agenda and where you should be. TIME. IT’S TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE. THIS IS THE MONTH OF ISSACHAR and therefore there is an Issachar anointing that you cannot miss.
The Issachar Month – 1 Chronicles 12:32, “From Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do—200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command” Traditionally, the 12 months of the year have been assigned to the 12 tribes of Israel. The month of Iyar was assigned to Issachar. The anointing of Issachar, “who understood the times and knew what Israel should do.” Compare this with Ephesians 5:15-17, which commands us to understand the times for the days are evil. This enables us to keep moving ahead. This month, take time to ask God to help you understand what the will of the Lord is, what He wants to do in our life, and determine to accept it. This is YOUR TIME!
Iyar –The Issachar Month – A Crucial Month
- Second month after Nisan…a month of transition from Passover to Pentecost.
- Issachar was the 9th son of Jacob, 5th son of Leah.
- His name means ‘he will bring a reward’ (Gen 30:18)
In the Gregorian calendar we are in the year 2017. In the Hebrew calendar this is the year 5777 which means The Clashing of Swords. 5777 began at sunset on 2 October 2016 and will end at sunset on 20 September 2017.
International bible scholar and teacher, Lance Wallnau defined the year 5777 like this:
“There are three “7” in this Jewish new year. Interestingly, the number “7” in Hebrew is the letter “zayin” which represents both the number “7” and the word “sword.” What we are looking at in 5777 is, “The year of supernatural grace (5) to engage the clashing of swords (7). The clashing of heaven and hell will show up in the conflict of ideologies. This collision of kingdoms has already started.”
So my friends, it’s your time! Expect God to reveal many mysteries to you during your times of study. Do more exercise this month and expect supernatural healing to occur in your body! Increase your personal praise of God during your days. We can expect the mighty God of Israel to perform that which He said he would. I took the entire month of Nisan off and dedicated it as a First Fruits offering to the Lord, suffice it to say I AM EXPECTING!!! I’m praying for your breakthrough!

Strange enough (not so strange anymore) there was this intensity the end of last month that keep inciting me to align my heart and my mind in position and to set aside May for some specific Kingdom activity. Now I come across this confirmation of an article. I love the Holy Spirit!

I adore this it reminds me of what the Holy Spirit did for me in May of 1990 what I was a prayer minister at Word of Faith all month long I woke up with this expectancy that God would show me mysteries, miracles and give me more understanding of the Word of God and that’s what happened all month long it also my birthday is May 12th but anyway when I woke up by the Anointing of God the Holy Spirit had me to ask this question what are you going to give me today for my birthday and I flopped my Bible open to Isaiah chapter 42 and if you this you’ll see that there are three special moves of the Spirit of God the first move was talking about the coming of the Messiah the second move talking about praise even to the islands of the sea the third move says this: The Lord will go forth like a mighty man he will rouse up his zealous indignation like a warrior he will cry yes he will shout allowed he will do mightily against its enemies thus saith the Lord I have for a long time held my peace I’ve been still and restrained myself. I will cry out like a woman in travail I will gasp and pant together and I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their herbage I will turn the rivers into islands and dry up the pools and I’ll bring the blind by the way that they know I will lead them in paths they have not known I will turn darkness into light before them and uneven places into a plane these things have I determined to do for them and I’ll not leave them forsaken.I believe the Holy Spirit revealed to me that these things are about to happen during Trump’s second-term and as the HOLY SPIRIT spoke through my mouth to Pastor Richard Van Winkle of the Shepherd’s House January 21st of 2001 these words because of America for the last hundred and fifty years or so has been the world leader in World Evangelism it is now time for American reap what America sown into the harvest fields of the world because this is America’s time God has revealed to me that over a hundred million Souls in America aloan are coming into the Kingdom of God through this move of the SPIRIT of GOD because this is America’s time! The greatest battle in the heavenlies is going on since the beginning of the world and Jesus came for what Souls can you see why the devil’s fighting so hard now to try to stop Trump because he sees what’s going to happen and these people that are total demon possessed totally corrupt of the Holy Spirit revealed to me in prayer at my church in 1999 the world leaders of today aren’t the same place spiritually as the gyptians were at the time of the Jews Exodus of Egyptian bondage just read Proverbs 6:16 and then also Romans chapter 1 and chapter 2 it says there men with men women with women doing that which is unseemly and encourage others to do the same and they are haters of GOD! now when they first announced that Barack Obama was running for president I didn’t know anything good or bad about him I didn’t even know yet that he was black and before I knew anything the HOLY SPIRIT said these exact words to me: He is totally corrupt he’s going to do much evil and boy did that come to pass the last thing he was threatening to do before he left office was signing an executive order cutting off all Federal funding from all school systems that didn’t allow these lbgt perverts to go in the bathroom with your children and the Lieutenant Governor’s response to him was keep your 30 pieces of silver! The HOLY SPIRIT also revealed to me that the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States was the single greatest Miracle GOD has done for AMERICA specifically the CHURCH since 1776 This anointed Mighty woman of GOD who is an intercessors intercessor who teaches others how to pray the WORD of GOD only by the HOLY SPIRIT and she is so full of the HOLY SPIRIT that she could hardly talk without laughing she was my Spiritual mother back in 1982 she would quote the Word of GOD from memory for two hours without having to even open The Bible well I called her in August of 2018 and shared that with her and her response was I agree with you 100% .Know what I am hearing in my Spirit is this and I believe this is the SPIRIT of GOD what I began I will finish! no I believe because I focused on America that the Holy Spirit revealed to me that Donald Trump is a modern-day g who for America and that he is a modern-day Cyrus for Israel that’s why he moved our Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem also Donald in Hebrew means the world leader and John in Hebrew means the favourite or favorite of God who is the trumpet of God’s justice what he has full control the wicked heads are gonna roll wait and see it all so he is going to get rid of the fat witch the Holy Spirit told me what JFK couldn’t get none Donald Trump was going to get done and then I heard him say it anyway Yeshua Hamashiach Bless you use you Mightly and The Best Is yet To Come!
Thank you for sharing James. God bless you sir.
