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::
“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).
