Recently, the Lord keeps bringing to my attention the word of the Lord He gave me for 2021/5781. In it, I talk about how in 2021 we have been given a Nehemiah mandate to build and restore the wall and the foundations that were brought down in 2020. One the of the Hebrew pictures for 5781 is the ox. The ox represents the apostolic anointing and grace. The ox is known for strength, plowing, and being able to bear the burden or weight.
As Nehemiah and the people built the wall they experienced great warfare and distraction. Despite the warfare from Sanballot, Tobias, and Geshem, they learned how to build with one hand and war with the other. Nehemiah 4:17 AMP says, “Those who were rebuilding the wall and those who carried burdens loaded themselves so that everyone worked with one hand and held a weapon with the other.” In this hour we must be strategic and learn how to build, carry the load, and deal with the warfare when it comes.
I sense many have become weary as they are building in 2021 because, the intensity of the warfare is increasing. I must encourage to stay on the wall and keep building what God has put upon your heart. Like Nehemiah, many of you have had a burden and vision that you feel compelled to see come forth. I want to encourage you and prophesy to you that you are anointed to build. You are anointed to overcome the warfare that comes with building. Nehemiah 6:9 CSB says, “For they were all trying to intimidate us, saying, “They will drop their hands from the work, and it will never be finished.” But now, my God, strengthen my hands.” Prophetically, hands represent our heart or the works of our hand. I declare and decree the strength of God is coming upon your hands now and, there is a quickening of His spirit upon you and within you. Nehemiah never let the taunts of the enemy to distract him abs get him off the wall.
A Season Of Promise
We are in a season of promise and the promises of God being fulfilled. Where 2020 was a season of delay, we are in a season of acceleration and fulfillment even into 2022. 2020 not only represented the year of the mouth, but also of vision. Prophetic words and promises release vision. Habakkuk 2:2-3 AMP declares, “Then the LORD answered me and said, “Write the vision And engrave it plainly on [clay] tablets So that the one who reads it will run. For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time It hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, Because it will certainly come; it will not delay.” 2020 was a time of divine reset and a time to wait upon the Lord to get the vision for the next 5-10-15-20 years. As we have stepped into 2021 and the Hebrew year 5781 there is an apostolic/ox anointing released to build and see the vision maturate and come forth. There is a convergence of the prophetic and apostolic. Promises and prophetic words don’t come forth on their own. We must partner and co labor with Holy Spirit to see them come forth. Everything you need to accomplish the prophetic word is contained in the word, it’s just a matter of activating it.
A Season of Wealth and Jubilee
In Isa 61 and Luke 4:18-19AMP Jesus declares, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me (the Messiah), because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent me to announce release (pardon, forgiveness) to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy), to proclaim and announce the favorable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the favor of God abound greatly].” This proclamation is another facet of the ox or apostolic anointing. This gives us a picture of what happens when the ox anointing is activated. In this scripture Jesus declares, “This is the favorable year/days of the Lord.” Year and days in this context does not mean and an actual year or a certain amount of days. Jesus is saying because I’ve come, a season or dispensation of the favorable days of the Lord has now been activated and initiated upon the earth. Jubilee is here. What is jubilee. In Leviticus 25 the Lord tells the Israelites that Jubilee is to be celebrated every 50 years because they were freed from captivity. The year of Jubilee meant all debts were canceled, slaves were freed, and land was returned to its original owners, and the land would rest. It was a time of great celebration. Because of Jesus and what he did in the cross, Jesus is our jubilee. We can always have jubilee because of Jesus.
What also marks the season of God’s favor is wealth. Wealth was meant to be a mark of the believer and God’s people. Wealth isn’t just money, it’s prospering in every area of your life. In Isaiah 61:6 AMP says, “But you shall be called the priests of the LORD; People will speak of you as the ministers of our God. You will eat the wealth of nations, And you will boast of their riches.” As a child of God there are nations meant to give to you. It’s part of our inheritance. The glory of God causes wealth to be attracted to your life. Isaiah 60:5 AMP says, “Then you will see and be radiant, And your heart will tremble [with joy] and rejoice Because the abundant wealth of the seas will be brought to you, The wealth of the nations will come to you.”
Now and in the days to come we’re going to see a great wealth transfer begin to hit the people of God. In June 2019 the Lord took me into an encounter where he showed me he was bringing down those who had exalted themselves and bring up those who have been low. There is exposure coming to companies, corporations, and big pharma that have been moving in corruption. Many will be surprised by the names of some of these corporations that will not make it. It will be quick and swift. In a day money will change hands because the Lord is judging the corruption. Proverbs 13:22 AMP says, “The wealth of the sinner is stored up for [the hands of] the righteous.” We were never meant to stay a borrower. I see many in this decade many becoming lenders and owners. Step out in faith it’s time to start that business. Another sign of the wealth transfer will be new discoveries of oil and natural resources upon the earth. In Isaiah 45:3 the Lord declares, “I will give you the treasures of darkness [they hoarded treasures] And the hidden riches of secret places.” This will be another sign of the wealth transfer for God’s people. Don’t stop building. There is an anointing to build. Jubilee is your portion and there’s a transfer wealth for God’s people.
