Instead of Shame You will have Double Honor

Psalm 27:6,And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me:”

We are now at Day 15 of the 40 days of preparing our hearts for the Fixed Appointed Times on God’s calendar, also known as the Feasts of the Lord (Lev 23). 15 days from today will be Rosh Hashanah, also known as the Feast of Trumpets or Yom Teruah. This is the Head of the Year, the Jewish New Year when the year changes to 5776.

What will this year bring for us? We need to confess Psalm 27 to prepare our hearts because this next year will be ‘the best of times‘ and for others, ‘the worst of times’. What you focus on the longest will become the strongest so let us focus on the Living Word of God and bring the promises into our New Year.

Isaiah 61:7, “Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be theirs.” Now that is a great promise! Grab hold of this for your next year.

The beginning of August, I attended a gathering at Glory of Zion in Corinth, TX with Dutch Sheets and Chuck Pierce. They both said several times that this next year (5776) will be the most historic in the past 70 year, it will be the most important year of our lives. But we will have to press through with faith to face the giants. But there is 2 kinds of faith depending on what you have been focusing on- faith in the negative or faith in God based on His Word.

Our King is a conquering King! When a king would overthrow another king in battle, the back of his garment would be cut off and his back side would be exposed. The word ’embarrassed’ comes from this warfare tradition. The conquered king would be paraded through the streets with his ‘back-side bared’.

We can hold our head high because the battle has already been done and the enemy of God has been paraded the enemy of His in disgrace.

Colossians 2:15 tells us, “[And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” In Greek ‘made a shew’ means to ‘expose in disgrace.’
