The New Prophetic Year brought in by Hurricane Sandy
Oct 31, 2012
In yesterday's blog about Hurricane Sandy, I mentioned the fact that it was 83 years since the Wall Street crash of 1929. It was also connected to The Twin Towers demolition on September 11, 2001 by a cycle of 83 x 49 days.
The number 83 is an interesting number in itself, as it is the gematria for "The Flood." In that Hurricane Sandy produced flooding on Wall Street, this has to be significant. I also wrote recently about Christ being the Bread of Life, without realizing that this topic is also full of the number 83. You can read about it here:
Every year we watch for the start of the new Prophetic Year that begins shortly after the feast of Tabernacles. The new Prophetic Year began on October 29, 2012. I suspected this yesterday, but wanted to pray about it last night before publishing this.
As a reminder for new readers, the Prophetic Year always starts with two cleansing periods of 76 days each. The year culminates on the 8th day of Tabernacles, and then there is an interim period before some event or revelation marks the start of the next Prophetic Year.
Last Year the Prophetic "Year of Awakening" began on November 11, 2011 and ended October 8, 2012.
I do not know yet what this year should be called, but its character is always foreshadowed by the event that starts the year. In this case it is Hurricane Sandy hitting New York and the financial center of Manhattan.
The first 76-day cycle ends on January 12-13, depending on whether you reckon inclusively or exclusively.
The second 76-day cycle ends on March 29-30, which is Good Friday and Saturday.
Those will be the watch dates that will establish the pattern for the coming Prophetic Year.
Recall what I wrote in my St. Louis Tabernacles Conference report:
The feast of Tabernacles this year (October 1-8) served as a time of prayer for rain, even as Elijah did in his pattern (1 Kings 18:43). We received the revelation on the evening of the seventh day of Tabernacles through brother Vinnie. The next morning Larren provided us with prophetic music ministry, and the core revelation came through the song, "If My People," taken from 2 Chronicles 7:13 and 14.
13 If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, 14 and if My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
We have now gone through the Elijah drought of three years and six months. We then prayed for rain and even baptized the Federal Reserve Bank. We have done all that we could do, according to the revelation that we had. Now we await God's action.
The rain signified the end of the 3-1/2 year drought (since April-May of 2009), the outpouring of the Spirit, and also a time of flooding.
It appears that this past year saw an awakening, but the next year will see us rising to our feet to do the Elisha work. We should watch November 11 specifically this year, because of its connection to last year's "Gateway Ceremony" of the Crystal Skulls in Los Angeles. But the whole time frame of Nov. 6-12 should be watched, as this is the final end of the 3-1/2 years since the Second Passover of 2009. (I first wrote about that on April 14, 2009.)
