The Chinese New Year is tomorrow February 12, 2021 in which they move from the year of the rat to the year of the ox. We have seen unrest in the earth and nation rise up against nation, though in all of this I believe the Lord has revealed an interesting thread of REDEMPTION.
On January 31, I woke up in the night hearing and seeing May 12. It was highlighted red and circled in the vision. Unbeknownst to me at the time, this is how a date appears when it is actually ‘the day of’ in a smartphone calendar. May 12th was red in the vision and literally can be interpreted “on that day”. When I searched for the significance of May 12, 2021, I found on the traditional calendar May’s birthstone is the emerald. Then the Lord led me to search out the Hebraic calendar and I discovered this day is a Jewish holiday, Rosh Chodesh Sivan. This is a celebration of acceptance of the Torah with a single mind and heart, like a marriage contract between God and Israel. This is the covenant at Sinai. “In the third month after the exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt, on that very day, they came to the desert of Sinai.” (Hebrew4Christians.com) “That very day” refers to Rosh Chodesh Sivan. In 2019 I had a vision of revival and unseen gems coming from deep in the earth. I saw rock that looked ordinary from the outside, though it was split in half and I saw what would resemble unordinary agate in form on the inside. Also in the vision an antique ring was given to me of a green gem in a specific cut I had never seen before, and I believed it was an emerald of sorts. The color green is also symbolic of new life. As a “feeler”, I could literally feel this revival deep in my soul. The month of May will be a birthing season for many, as they have intimately served the Lord’s heart in the secret place, it will be a time of revealing the unseen mysteries that were given in covenant with Him.
After reading “In the third month after the exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt” quoted above, in my mind I laughed, wondering why the Lord seemed to be talking to me forwards to go backwards. So I looked up what the date would be three months prior to May 12th, and it is February 12th – essentially meaning this is when there is an exodus from our captivity. When I researched I discovered this date is the Chinese New Year, where I wrote above they move from the year of the rat to the year of the ox. On the Hebrew calendar the holiday observed is Rosh Chodesh Adar. This is traditionally a time to turn away from sin before the start of the new year of spring. “The month of Adar is a season given to us each year to begin preparing for the holiday of Passover”, essentially a time of “spring cleaning”. (Hebrew4Christians.com) Passover dates for 2021 are March 27 – April 4. The Lord has also spoken to me that we will have an early spring. I believe this is spiritual, and even on our Gregorian calendar we celebrate Easter / Resurrection Sunday on April 4, eight days earlier than last year. Pay attention! As the Lord spoke to me a year ago, He is aligning and synching us with HIS systems. Eight is the number of New Beginnings. Come out from the old and prepare your temple for His visitation and glory.
Interestingly, the Ox on the Chinese calendar is a word that also refers to cows, bulls, and neutered bovine family such as common cattle or water buffalo (wikipedia.com). On February 9, 2021 I had a warning vision of a prophet who was on a bull. The prophet was riding the bull with another male and a female, and he had his arm in the air holding his cowboy hat flailing in the air, while smiling and laughing carelessly. Then the bull thrust all three persons to the ground to the right of it’s side. Just prior to having this vision I kept hearing, “like a bull in a China shop”. I believe this signifies the Lord breaking three-fold agreements that exult themselves against His knowledge. “We are destroying arguments and all arrogance raised against the knowledge of God..” 2 Corinthians 10:5. The Lord desires that all should repent, though He resists the proud (2 Peter 3:9, James 4:6). I see the Lord’s redemption in that He is the bull, and His strength will break wrong agreements. “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12. This is a season when He will continue to remove and establish kings and leaders, and those who have misrepresented Him. The Lord’s words are both precious and holy, and He will thrust those away from position who have removed their covering (cowboy hat) and acted recklessly in His Name. “Then appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God: to those who fell [into spiritual ruin], severity, but to you, God’s gracious kindness—if you continue in His kindness [by faith and obedience to Him]; otherwise you too will be cut off.” Romans 11:12. When I asked the Lord about this vision, I heard “steer”. In Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, steer is defined as “a male bovine animal and especially a domestic ox castrated before sexual maturity.”, also known as a bullock, or bull calf. I believe the Lord is saying He is removing the immature leaders who have aimed to ‘steer’ the prophetic movement, and He Himself being the very Spirit of prophecy will steer, cleanse and plow forward the prophetic movement.
A beautiful time of restoration is at hand, and all in the body have an invitation to become equally yoked with the Lord in this hour. When animals are unequally yoked, by height or strength the task will take longer or will not be completed at all. In some instances the animals go around in circles though they are attached in the same position at the neck they can not act as one. This is the time to be united as one with the Lord. Become one with Him, and you will see the confusion and soulful hardship dissipate, enter into blessed fruitfulness that will sustain you. The ox was a levitical animal and highly esteemed in Biblical times because the ox’s labor equated sustenance. “Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is comfortable, and My burden is light.” Matthew 11: 28-30. Be encouraged, for “much increase comes by the strength of an ox” (Proverbs 14:4), lean and rely upon the Lord as you plow together for the harvest to come.
