As I was seeking the Lord about the Hebraic calendar year 5782 and the Gregorian calendar year 2022, I heard, "A year of awakening, arising and advancing." Holy Spirit told me to take note of what the Lord has already been speaking to me in these past months. There have been two key themes: 1) the awakening of the sleepers, and 2) the Body of Christ (individually and corporately) coming forth and manifesting the glory of the Lord.
One of the verses that He has been impressing upon me is Ephesians 5:14-17 (KJV): "Wherefore He saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is."
I was surprised to discover that in Strong's Concordance, under the number 5782 in Hebrew, is found the word "ur," which means, to rouse oneself, awake; opening the eyes; awaken; stir up self, raise up; lift up self. The significance was confirmed to me through Holy Spirit whispering, "Awake up, My glory. Awake." I looked this up and found the full verse in Scripture:
"Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early." (Psalm 57:8, KJV)
What an emphasis – with the numbers 578 being the verse reference (above), and the Hebrew word for "awake" being found under the number 5782 in Strong's Concordance!
Building His House
The Hebrew letter "Bet" carries the numerical value of 2, and means "home, house or dwelling." This is the year where many will be awakened to rise up and join in the building of His House. It is time for the uniting of the Body, for building the dwelling place of God in the Spirit, and to make known to the principalities and powers the manifold wisdom of God by the Church (Ephesians 3:10)! More than filling seats in the churches, it is the raising up of sons and daughters who know their identity, who are rightly fitted and operating, with honor given to each part.
"Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit." (Ephesians 2:19-22, NKJV)
I believe Ephesians 2:22 speaks of the year 2022, where the Church will be His dwelling place.
The enemy has been dividing and isolating individuals to try and stop what he knows is inevitable, but God is moving mightily by the Spirit and stirring up His people. We are still in the decade of "Pey" (the mouth/speaking), and certainly there has been a warfare to silence God's people. We are on the cusp of a great awakening and outpouring, and there is now an alignment of the timing of God with 5782 and 2022. For 2 is the number of agreement, witness and testimony; the duality of Heaven and Earth; and (as mentioned previously) the house, or dwelling place, of God.
Get Ready to Be Stirred!
I am hearing, by the Spirit of the Living God, that He is raising up trumpeters – strong voices of prophetic exhortation – to awaken the sleepers to arise and do the work of Kingdom building. Get ready for a fresh wind of empowerment. It's time to breathe the breath of God and LIVE! (Photo via Pixabay)
"And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost." (John 20:22, KJV)
In John 20:22 we find the number 2022; and in Strong's Concordance, under the number 2022 in the Greek, we find the Greek word "epicheo," which means to pour upon! Responding to the stirring with willing reception and faithful action will bring an outpouring of empowerment for the work at hand!
Holy Spirit also quickened to me Ezra 1:5 and Haggai 1:4, which are verses with the word "stirred" (again, corresponding with Strong's Concordance number 5782), in response to the word about Kingdom building:
"Then God stirred the hearts of the priests and Levites and the leaders of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin to go to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple of the LORD." (Ezra 1:5, NLT)
"And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God." (Haggai 1:14, KJV)
Angelic Visitations to Awaken
The Lord showed me that He is sending an increase of angelic visitations to awaken! He is aligning Heaven and Earth to awaken, arise and advance His Kingdom!
"And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep." (Zechariah 4:1, KJV)
The Hebrew picture for Bet is a picture of house with walls and roof, but the door is always open. Jesus is the Door, and Captain of the host of the Lord. There is an open door to see the heavenly realm, and its interaction with Earth, to those who are awakened to see. Do not be blinded by the enemy's doings; stay in that ascended place of being seated with Christ and watch!
"And He saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, hereafter ye shall see Heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man." (John 1:51, KJV)
Arise to the Ascended Place – Watch, Wait and Obey
Recently, as my husband and I were having fellowship in the Spirit, the Lord took me up into a vision. I was standing with Him in an elevated place above the mountains of Israel. The city of Jerusalem was surrounded by people and more were coming. I sensed that they didn't know the time of their visitation. Many, worldwide, are in this place of not knowing the time of their visitation. I also was very aware that this was foretelling of future times, where Jerusalem will be surrounded by armies but unafraid. His emphasis to me was to stay in the ascended place with Him – to watch, wait and obey.
He revealed that we are in a critical time; a time to be watchful, waiting for the word of authority that comes from Him – direction that only comes from Him – not speaking a word until He speaks, then agreeing with Him and decreeing it into the atmosphere. This is a year to be carefully watching, not reacting in the flesh but from the high, elevated place where He is.
Since that vision, every time I am troubled by the other voices elevating the enemy's work, I quickly move into the ascended place. See yourself there! This is reality!
"But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus." (Ephesians 2:4-7, NKJV)
The earth has been shaking, pressure is building, and there is a stirring of atmospheric elements. The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof (Psalm 24:1). It is aware of His movements, increasing in its groaning with anticipation of the manifestation of the sons and daughters of God (Romans 8:19). There is strong angelic activity, a stirring of the waters, a releasing of the winds, and a stirring of the spirits of men, women and children of God. For there is coming forth an unleashing of the Spirit of God. (Photo via Wikipedia)
Even as the enemy stirs up the spirits of many people to agitate and divide, do not be deceived. From the ascended place, perceive this activity as a smokescreen to divert you from seeing what God is doing and will continue to do. The enemy wants to wear us out through battling in the earth realm, rather than coming up higher, seeing what He is doing, and responding in faith and action as He leads.
Advance to Victory
He is coming as a mighty man of war to exact vengeance upon His enemies. Isaiah 42:13 is a 5782 verse (a "stirring" verse):
"The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, He shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: He shall cry, yea, roar; He shall prevail against His enemies." (Isaiah 42:13, KJV)
Deborah also depicts 5782 and how the Lord is awakening us for the battle at hand:
"Awake, awake, Deborah: awake, awake, utter a song: arise, Barak, and lead thy captivity captive, thou son of Abinoam." (Judges 5:12, KJV)
The Lord is awakening warriors to arise and advance to victory in the earth. Be faithful in what He calls you to do – even as you see the enemy dividing. Be still, and know that God is allowing it so that eyes can be opened. The sound is being released for a triumphant awakening to the truth that our God reigns. Many shall come forth – multitudes are in the valley of decision – and the wheat is being divided from the tares.
I heard, "Preach, decree, declare; let My truth fill the air! Make loud the sound of My renown, that in Me only life is found. The plumbline has dropped... reverberations still moving. I know My own; many are choosing light over darkness – you will see them arise. For My awakening is stirring and I am opening eyes."
Holy Spirit reminded me of the account in Song of Solomon chapter 5, verses 1-6, where the Shulamite is awakened by the bridegroom, but she had been asleep, and did not want to put her garments on again. This is the picture for many people – discouraged, tired from battling, not wanting to once again make the effort to put on their spiritual armor and come forward in the robe of righteousness. They are weary and want to stay in bed. He is sending a fresh wind from Heaven to stir you into remembrance. Even now, I hear and decree a quickening of your spirit to His voice and your calling.
I heard the Lord decree, "Awaken My glory, awaken, awaken. You have perceived yourself as one forsaken – diminished – allowing My glory to be taken under cover in darkness. Now I speak: Awaken, awaken! Release – let My glory free! The multitudes will see and worship ME!"
I heard the Lord's encouragement, "They are hearing, rising from the dead; turning, seeing Me as the head. They are coming out of the enemy's trance. Watch and see as they quickly advance, discerning My movement at the slightest glance. For these are the days of darkness – gross darkness is here; but I say, there is no reason for fear, for I go before and I guard the rear. Listen to what I speak in your ear!
"Come up higher; see as I see. I will show you what will be, and I will give My divine strategy. I am victorious, I have overcome; the works of darkness shall be undone. For I AM THE ALMIGHTY, THE ETERNAL ONE. Listen, heed My call; kingdoms will rise and kingdoms will fall, but MY Kingdom is rising in the midst of it all."
