September 30 and October 1 2019 mark the celebration of Rosh Hashanah or the head of the Jewish Year.
The coming New Year on the Jewish calendar is 5780.
In Hebrew the numerical system is deeply entwined in the function of the Hebrew alphabet; with each number being linked to a letter.
Hence, if we look at the number 5780, from a Hebrew perspective, this is the meaning we see: right hand power (of God) to reveal the covenant of consuming fire, breathing, speaking, bringing into reality words of life.
What we have been experiencing increasingly over recent years is the escalation of the "war of words". Media and especially social media have perpetuated this "war of words" which we now accept as the norm.
So, what does the year 5780 mean in the context of this ever increasing "war of words"?
In this year, nothing will be of greater importance than the words spoken by the Body of Christ here on earth. This year offers the opportunity for the words of life to take the ascendancy and ultimately the victory in this "war of words".
However, for this to occur our words must be an accurate, uncompromising reflection of He who is the right hand power of God: Yeshua.
Our words must be an accurate, uncompromising reflection of the covenantal nature of our LORD.
