This Monday, June 3rd, will begin the third month of the Hebrew Covenant Calendar, known as the month of Sivan.  Sivan means “glorious!”

It was during the month of Sivan in the Old Testament that God revealed His glory (fire) at Mt. Sinai, giving us the Tablets of Covenant (Ex19).  It is during this same month in the New Testament that the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples in the upper room as they spoke with “tongues of fire” as God wrote the Tablets of Covenant on their hearts and minds (Acts 2).IMG_4702

I asked Reese Mueller, who drew this picture representing this month in our Hebrew Covenant Calendar 2019, to share his inspiration.  This is what he said:

“I had just started doing art at the time of drawing this, so I didn’t really know what to draw.  But I got inspired thinking about Moses going up Mt. Sinai and remembering the fire.  Then I remembered the pillar of fire that protected the children of Israel from the Egyptians.  So I wanted to draw the “fire of God” as looking powerful and as our protector.”

I like how Reese captured the fire in the form of a “person,” known as the Holy Spirit of God, who dwells within each believer to comfort them and fill them with His glory.

Sivan is the month associated with the tribe of Zebulun, known for their wisdom in business.  Zebulun quite often was able to supply provision for all the tribes, and because of their location in Promised land, became a gateway for God’s people to prosper in trading.

This month is a time to reflect and be thankful for God’s provision of His Word written on our hearts, as well as the Holy Spirit of fire that empowers us to prosper and overcome as “sons and daughters” of God.

God promises us provision in many ways, and shows us in His Word how He always comes through.  Let’s take a look at a few examples.

God’s provision came supernaturally for the children of Israel in the desert, through manna and quail, and water springing out of a rock (Ex. 14-17) to help them journey through the wilderness.

“Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.” (Ex. 17:6). 

Provision came supernaturally through Jesus as He laid hands of the sick, caused nets to be filled with fish, tax money to be found in the mouth of a fish, and fed the 5,000 with fish and loaves.

“Nevertheless, lest we offend them, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first.  And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you” (Matt. 17:27).

In Acts 2, we read how the disciples and met in the upper room in one accord, and suddenly God filled them with His provision of power and truth that caused 5,000 witnesses to give their life to Jesus.

“And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.  Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them” (Acts 2:3).

We then go on to read how all these followers of Christ came together again in one accord, surrendering all of their belongings for the greater goodness of the needs of the people. In return, God overwhelmed them with His supply to go and become His witnesses to His truth and glory.

“Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, and sold their possessions and good, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.  So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people.  And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved” (Acts 2:43-47).

Today, we have access to not only that great supply of provision, but even greater!  As more Christians have multiplied in the earth, we have more believers to come in one accord to influence the nations!  We are also living in the times that are forming a corporate (national) movement of God’s provision of glory filling the earth.

We are also awaiting the FULLNESS of God’s provision when we receive glorified bodies and can then go from heaven to earth as Jesus did after His resurrection.

“So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: Death is swallowed up in victory” (1 Cor. 15:54).

It will be a glorious day, and one in which we can take time this month to thank God for that provision to come.

“For if what is passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious” (2 For. 3:11).

There is a time when provision meets us at the turning point in our destiny to move us forward.  Let’s set our hearts to enter into the gateway of His provision to do the work He has called each of us to do.  Whether it is in business or ministry, or even personal, let’s stir our faith up this month that God has and will supply ALL of our needs, according to His riches and glory.

As you sow into the needs of others, expect the gateways of God’s goodness to pour back to you in fullness of measure.  This month, we are reminded that this is HIS promise.  I believe this year specifically, business opportunities that will influence the community they are in will enter into great provision.  There is also an anointing to step into seats of government so that His provision is used for good and not evil, to govern with righteousness and truth and not against God’s ways.

Dwell in His presence and receive His provision!




Franklin Graham has reached out to the Christian community to pray for President Trump on JUNE 2nd.  The following is from his facebook page:


“Along with 250+ Christian leaders, I am asking followers of Christ across our nation to set aside next Sunday, June 2, as a special day of prayer for the President, Donald J. Trump.

President Trump’s enemies continue to try everything to destroy him, his family, and the presidency. In the history of our country, no president has been attacked as he has. I believe the only hope for him, and this nation, is God.

This is a critical time for America. We’re on the edge of a precipice. Time is short. We need to pray for God to intervene. We need to ask God to protect, strengthen, encourage, and guide the President.

We know that God hears and answers prayer. He can soften hearts and change minds. He is all-powerful, and He rules over the affairs of nations. The Bible instructs us to pray for those in authority, “that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior” (1 Timothy 2:2–3).

On June 2, we ask that pastors would lead their congregations in praying for the President, that Sunday schools and other groups would join together and pray, and that individuals and families across the country would have a special focus on praying for the President that day.

Would you let me know in the comments below if you commit to pray with us? And will you share this on your social media platforms so that we can have as many people as possible praying?

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).

Let’s all join in and unite in prayer this June 2nd!

National Day of Prayer…

The National Day of Prayer has been around since 1952, setting aside the first Thursday of May to call out to God on behalf of our nation.  Today many have gathered at the flagpoles in our towns and bring God our concerns and to hear our pleas. But what is God saying?

For many years, I have set aside this day to go to city hall or another governmental landmark and prayed for our nation.  This year my heart was led to join a friend of mine over the phone to pray so that we had the freedom to pray as the Lord leads.  So what did God lead us to pray?

For us, the burden to pray for all the babies who were never given the chance to have a voice to choose life was at the center of God’s heart.  We wept for these babies whom God formed in the womb, but never experienced life outside of the womb.  We cried for the unarmed, unnamed, and unnoticed babies who aren’t with us today.

Someone sent me this article from life news today:

“A shocking 19 states do not require any protection for babies born alive after botched abortions, a new report by Americans United for Life revealed this week.”

I am sure you are as surprised as I to see this list bigger than just New York, which is the only state that is in the news right now.  Below is the link to this article:

19 States Allow Infanticide, Let Abortionists Leave Babies to Die Who Survive an Abortion

After the tears, repentance, and intercession for God to reveal truth to those who are blinded, we got an amazing vision from God that gave me chills: 

I saw Jesus, our Commander in Chief, returning with His army to reign in the Millennium.  As I looked behind Him to see who was with Him, I saw every baby who never had a voice, and who didn’t get the chance to live, coming with Him by His side. They were all singing and chosen by God to speak His truth to the nations.  Ahh, it was so powerful.

The authority they had to speak was like thunder and lightning.  These babies will be seen and heard someday.  Rest assured, all who have joined in the abortion slaughter will be caught up in God’s mercy and love He had for these little ones, and they too will mourn.  It was truly a vision of the scripture of how God turns all things around for His good.  Amazing!

I find it interesting that on this same day is National Holocaust Remembrance Day.  Nothing new under the sun:  the same spirit back then was killing the innocent as the Jews had no voice either of their rights to live.  We are being awakened to the murderous spirit that is staining our nation’s land.

If you haven’t had a chance to see the movie “Unplanned,” in the theaters, please go.  Supporting this documentary that exposes what has been happening at Planned Parenthood will help truth multiply in the land.

Of course we also prayed for Trump, his protection, and submitted each governor to the Lord as well. But after feeling the burden of our nation’s choices over the years, my heart went out for God’s remnant to arise and shine so they can step into positions of authority.

The Lord is saying it’s TIME to awaken to His truth, and act on its behalf.



The next Firstfruits in the Hebrew Covenant Calendar begins this Saturday evening, May 4th, 2019.

For those of you who have a Firstfruits Covenant Calendar, the picture drawn for this month was by a young girl named Isabella DiToro.  I asked her to share her inspiration:Isabella's pic 6:

“I saw a donkey because that’s the symbol of humbling yourself.  Jesus is God, and he humbled Himself when He entered the city on a donkey. I saw the cloud parting and the sun starting to shine through, giving light as a symbol for wisdom and understanding coming from Heaven.  Iyar means “reflected light” and in my picture the light from the sun is reflected in the water under the donkey.”
I love how Isabella captured the heart of this month:  humbly seeking God’s revelation, waiting for Him to light the path ahead.
The month of Iyar is also linked to the tribe of Issachar who understood the timing and wisdom of God.  Carrying the burden of intercession for the kingdom of God is a characteristic of this month, and is the key ingredient needed for the seeds sown in this spring season to multiply and prosper.
“the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do..”(1 Chron.12:32).
Dive into this month with an expectation that as you pray, God will deliver instruction and key ingredients needed to continue moving forward in your destiny and the destiny of our nation.
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Heb. 11:6).
