ELUL, THE 14TH DAY – A Prayer for Unity and Peace

Ascending the steps of Jerusalem in Prayer

September 2nd: READING & PRAYING PSALMS 133-142

Ref: ELUL, OUR 29 DAY BANQUET OF PRAYER… TO HONOR THE KING OF GLORY!

There are fifteen Psalms of Ascent, 120–134 (119–133 in the Septuagint and the Vulgate). Known as songs of ascent due to the tradition of signing these specific Psalms of peace while in route ascending to Jerusalem, or ascending Mount Zion or ascending the steps of the Temple. 

PSALM 133 —A Psalm of Ascent

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

Verse 1 and 2

The Priest was anointed for Life. This is why the oil was poured over his head at such a level that it ran down from his head and saturated his garments. He was drenched in the anointing oil to such an extent that even his sons were covered under his anointing. The anointing was their inheritance.

Aaron was known for his ability to help the brethren resolve disputes. His talents were utilized by Heaven to restore all levels of relationships; friendships, marriages. His ability to bring people back into right alignments, back into a place unity and friendship was legendary.

At his death it was said that there were 80,000 Aarons at his memorial service. A testimony to the number of marriages he helped and the people he impacted with his ministry. He would go to great lengths to reignite love, peace and kindness. He would appeal to the parties in a dispute and motivate them towards reconciliation, with such finesse that they thought it was their own idea to settle the matter and lay down their animosity and anger.

Their were many facets to the priestly robes, but one we need to recall is the of the ephod. The ephod contained the symbols (stones) of all twelve tribes. So when the oil flowed down Aarons’ garments, it covered the ephod in the same anointing oil. As Aaron was anointed, all twelve tribes were partakers in the same anointing, as one unified nation of people.

Verse 3

Mt Hermon: https://images.app.goo.gl/MH2Uh8J7CWipU46k9

Important pieces of information to know: de in Hebrew is ‘tal’. Mt. Hermon stands 9, 232 feet high and resides in the North. Mt Zion is 2, 510 feet high and resides in the South.

An enormous amount of dew falls on Mt Hermon during the better part of the year. When its not raining, their is dew, and the dew nourishes the land, the plants and fruits thrive.

Zion has a drier climate, less rain, less dew. In a year when the dew comes to Mt. Zion, the fruits and plants prosper and grow, as if a supernatural fertilizer has been poured over the land.

The dew of Heaven is as nourishing as the rain. The entire land is refreshed, prospers and grows. The harvest is bountiful. The symbolism of the dew connects us to spiritual blessings, a refreshing, unity, harmony, growth, prosperity, etc.

OUR PRAYER

Lord, we pray for the unity of your people. Send us our Aarons, with words of peace and reconciliation, words of harmony and love. Send us words and visions of peace in our dreams. Show us every place hat we block and frustrate the bonds of peace. Shows us the people that you are waiting for us to reconcile with. Show us the pathway to unity.

Help us to break down the walls of partition that we have created or the ones we did not build but have allowed to remain. Teach us how to remove them. What shall we do? What are the first steps we need to take?

For every nation that is in a dry and barren place, we seek the anointing. We desire unity LORD, We desire peace for your people. Saturate our dry places with the dew of Heaven, like the dew of Mt. Hermon.

We who are in a dry place, for everyone in a dry place, we beseech you LORD for the blessing, for the rain, for the dew.

May the oil from the bread of Aaron, renew us again.

Amen.


	

ELUL, THE 13TH DAY OF PRAYER

Which Place Shall Become, Your Dwelling Place with GOD?

September 1st: TODAY WE ARE READING & PRAYING PSALMS 126-132

Ref: ELUL, OUR 29 DAY BANQUET OF PRAYER… TO HONOR THE KING OF GLORY!

Once again, by the providence of GOD, our assignment to read and pray the Psalms is set together so very nicely. To really appreciate this to the utmost, we have some reading to do.

Today, let’s start at the end, Psalm 132 and work our way back to the beginning, Psalm 126, after reading 1 Samuel 29 through 1 Samuel 31. This will help to provide more context for our prayers tonight. As you read through these two Psalms, I have highlighted a few key messages for you.

PSALM 132

Lord, remember David
    and all his self-denial.

He swore an oath to the Lord,
    he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
“I will not enter my house
    or go to my bed,
I will allow no sleep to my eyes
    or slumber to my eyelids,
till I find a place for the Lord,
    a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

We heard it in Ephrathah,
    we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:[a]
“Let us go to his dwelling place,
    let us worship at his footstool, saying,
‘Arise, Lord, and come to your resting place,
    you and the ark of your might.

May your priests be clothed with your righteousness;
    may your faithful people sing for joy.’”

10 For the sake of your servant David,
    do not reject your anointed one.

11 The Lord swore an oath to David,
    a sure oath he will not revoke:
“One of your own descendants
    I will place on your throne.
12 If your sons keep my covenant
    and the statutes I teach them,
then their sons will sit
    on your throne for ever and ever.”

13 For the Lord has chosen Zion,
    he has desired it for his dwelling, saying,

1“This is my resting place for ever and ever;
    here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it.

15 I will bless her with abundant provisions;
    her poor I will satisfy with food.
16 I will clothe her priests with salvation,
    and her faithful people will ever sing for joy.

17 “Here I will make a horn grow for David
    and set up a lamp for my anointed one.

18 I will clothe his enemies with shame,
    but his head will be adorned with a radiant crown.”

Please READ 1 Samuel 29- 1 Samuel 31

PSALM 126

When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.

The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south.

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

PSALM 127

Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.

Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

In a prophetic sense of Prayer, Zion is your fortified City and stronghold. David established it as the place, the dwelling place of GOD. Before I could send out this prayer, I sent a message out called, A Place Where GOD’s Presence can Meet You. It’s about setting up your own place, somewhere… room that you love being in, a place that brings you a sense of peace and comfort, a garden, a river, a lake or a beach.

There’s a friend of mine, we all have one, who will say to me when they read this, “I can pray and meet with GOD anywhere.” Yes, that’s perfectly true, and likewise GOD established the sabbath as His divine meeting place, for all of mankind… if we choose.

There are friends who have not seen each other for years and they can say to each other, “OK, I’ll meet you at 6pm”, and they don’t even have to say the name of the place outloud. They know the place. Husband’s and wives always have a special place, at least one.

It’s OK if some of you don’t fully understand what I’m talking about right now, understanding will come. There’s a place where revelation will come. A place where the Heavens’a are open for just you. Keep watch and pray.

As the bride of Christ, where is your place?

There’s a personal place that you can connect with the Presence of GOD. Establish a place that you consecrate to the presence of GOD. It could be the sliver of land between the house and the garage, or a spot under your favorite tree. GOD loves initiative and accepts all gestures of love toward him that are intended for the purpose of building our relationship with Him.

In lieu of our City of David, we shall establish a place, without legalism, without man made traditions or dogmatic perceptions or expectations. If you do not already have one, establish one. Take time to read through these Psalms and this portion of scripture and pray. GOD is faithful. He will show you the place.

A personal prophetic place of prayer. This is important.

PREP FOR ROSH Hashanah, Prophetic WORD for 2021/5781

Teachings Notes From September 1, 2020 – Preparation for Rosh Hashanah. Prelude to Rosh Hashanah, Part by Rev. Y Malveaux

ELUL, ON THE 10TH DAY OF PRAYER. Who Do You Say That I Am?

August 29th: TODAY WE ARE READING & PRAYING PSALMS 105-111

Ref: ELUL, OUR 29 DAY BANQUET OF PRAYER… TO HONOR THE KING OF GLORY!

Psalm 105:

Bless the LORD, Oh MY Soul. LORD You Are Very Great. You are clothe with honor and majesty!

You cover yourself with light as with a garment, and shed light on us…so we can be Your Light on earth! How much You trust us with Your Light.

LORD, just as you have set a boundary that the waters can not pass over, that they not cover the earth again…

The sun does not rise or set, except by Your Word. It shall stay its course,

The moon shall rise and set, there shall be no deviation from its path, the clouds shall be your chariot, You shall walk upon the wings of the wind, You make the angels spirits and a flaming fire, the foundations of the earth shall not be moved…

This far and no further….

At one time the waters stood above the mountains. At Your rebuke they fled, and the thunder hasted away. You appointed the moon for seasons, and the sun knows when to go down…

You hide Your Face and we are troubled…You take away our breath and we die and return to dust… You send forth your spirit and we are created, and recreated, born and born again.

At Your thought, the world renews itself and gives us a home on earth that sustains us.

Now LORD, we have given our leaders enough time, we have looked to them for guidance and found none.. we have waited for their science to solve our pandemic… they asked for 2 years, or 18 months for vaccines so that they can bring this epic-epidemic to an end.

Clearly, they have no solutions…we are to wash our hands and wear a mask. It’s the least we can do, and the best they can offer and I completely understand…they are out of their depth. We have funded WHO’s and CDC’s for decades and the world stands spellbound in the hands of men.

Don’t Let Us Fall Into The Hands of Man ….

Science does need time and good people are working diligently to bring us a solution. Countries are jockeying for position, “Who shall be first with a cure”, as if its a competition. Some are even dismissing the efforts of other countries, saying they don’t have the brain power, wisdom, skill or science to produce a cure. Once again, racial bias wants to dominate and determine not only, who lives and who dies, but what color can find a cure. Some are more concerned with the color of the cure than saving many people alive!

But You Oh LORD, are a shield for us, our glory and the lifter up of our heads

The world needs more time…

But You LORD, can make an end in a day!

Just as you have set the boundaries for the elements, the world, the sun, the moon and the stars, just as You have set the boundaries for the waters, on earth and in Heaven,

Agree with us tonight LORD… set the boundaries for this pandemic,

Dispatch your angels to set every cell of they virus on fire…. we curse every molecule to its root!

We decree and declare, that covid must die… we declare divine reversal..

The world needs 12-18 more months to attempt a best solution,

All we need is a Word from the LORD… All we need is strong agreement.

All we need is 2 or more in complete agreement, steadfast in prayer, consecrated, dedicated believers.

There are nearly 9 billion people on earth. There must be 2 who agree, and will not come into ungodly agreement with a plague. Who will not give it any quarter, any room for expansion.. who will hear every news report and forecast and cast those words down into the pit, like vain imaginations, and every high thought that sought to exalt itself above the knowledge of the Most High GOD!

There must be 2 Witnesses to the Power of GOD in their lives and who can speak that same anointing onto the world! There must be someone healed from the incurable, the impossible, the diabolical. There must be at least two people that can stand with us and shout, this far and no further!

Who will agree with me and call this thing illegal, its reign of terror over, its assignment cursed to the root!

Our sons and daughters and children’s grandchildren shall live. Our parents and grandparents shall not be susceptible, we bind this predator off of their homes, their lives, we decree and declare they shall be still, they shall abide under the protection of the Most High GOD, Everyone assigned in their lives shall proceed with great care and wisdom concerning their care, their lives, their handling…

Nothing by no means shall harm them. Enough!

This thing seeks our lives, to attach itself to our lungs and suffocate.

We decree that covid must die, we suffocate covid with prayer, fasting and consecration, with our faith and trust in GOD.

We suffocate and destroy every assignment of the enemy by faith in the WORD of GOD that proceeds out of our mouth. With every thing the enemy finds foolish in our prayers, we say, “Watch, and see how the LORD, GOD, ALMIGHTY, comes for our word in prayer to perform it! We have seen the Goodness of GOD in the Land of the Living and we shall see His Goodness over and over again!

We draw a line in the spirit realm and everyone under the covering of our prayers, on our prayer list, on our hearts and minds, shall be covered, included, blessed and highly favored!

While praying this prayer, I hear the teaching from 1 Samuel 18 when Elijah said that the GOD who answers by fire, let Him be GOD.

24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.

I’m hearing Zechariah 4:2-3, when the angel woke him out of his sleep and asked him, “What sets thou?”

And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:

 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.

By Your WORD, I ask for healing of the earth, the atmosphere and Your People… All the souls that you have given us to care for. I ask for healing in our every breath. Cleanse us LORD, as You cleanse from all unrighteousness. I ask that You agree with me, with us…with Your People. We put You in remembrance of Your Word, LORD, ask that covid cross no more boundaries.

covid must turn and die.

(Isaiah 43:26. “Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.”)

Zechariah 4:

10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?

12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?

13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.

1Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.

We plead for the souls LORD, together, with One heart, one mind and one spirit. All we can offer is prayer, we have no science but The Lord of Host. Who is near and not 12 or 18 months away. ALL OF OUR CONFIDENCE IS IN YOU!

Send us two anointed ones, and even more LORD, that will stand by this prayer, as with the LORD of the whole earth and the GOD who answers by fire, He is GOD!

Amen.

Love… For A Black Panther

Another Black Panther has passed away. Once again, we weren’t ready. I know, It wasn’t your plan to leave us…. but still I felt a little cheated someway

News of our loss of you, came from across the room, it came like a bolt of lightning

I guess it had to snatch me out of hiding, where I’ve been secretly abiding, in a place I was not inviting -the world

So I’m reeling, because I’m seeing and hearing and feeling, another Panther dies, another light rising, another knight fighting for his life,

Another loss that will be forever with us, another side of grief that keeps us longing for the end of death, which is illegal by the way, That’s why we fight it everyday, it wasn’t supposed to happen this way, We were meant to live.

We wanted to pray for you, to place a command before Heaven for you, It’s what we were created to do, because GOD told us to,

He said, ” Concerning my sons and concerning the works of my hands, command ye me”

We would have commanded long life, we would have reached into the past with our prayers and bound all sickness and disease, we would have prayed until we had the release

Prayed… until your body remembered its first estate, until Heaven was opened by the sound of our faith

Prayed… until the future made room for our gift… your life was another one of our gifts!

We would have persuaded, negotiated, commanded it!

More time to see you reviving, thriving, living and not dying

More time for you to bring us close while you create, and motivate,

More time for you to bless and be a blessing,

More time for you to edify and encourage,

For all that you gave, we should have given, we should have nourished

Your soul, through prayer, with fasting and courage

To believe that nothing shall be impossible, because we believe

For every spirit you lifted, whether scripted or unscripted

We give thanks to GOD, that your gifts were shared with each one of us

We give thanks that your spirit existed, that we couldn’t resist it

To All the Black Panthers out there, I bless GOD for your life

I want you to live and not die,

I want you to thrive and strive, for much more than to survive

There’s so much goodness in you, that chases your greatness

In the final scene, on the this world screen

The Panther is not the enemy of the Panther,

Wakanda Forever!


For My Grandson…Because Judah roars for the Black Panther

ELUL, I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine..

Just for a moment, let’s take a closer look at the Hebrew Word, ELUL.

Below is an excerpt from Biblehub.com; the Interlinear translation of Psalms 6:3.


In Song of Solomon 6:3, we have the beautiful verse, ah’knee luh-doe’dee vuh’doe’dee lee

meaning: I am of My Beloved and My Beloved is Mine

This Month on the Biblical Calendar is called ELUL…

ELUL, is written with four Hebrew Letters, aleph (A) – lamed (L)- vav (U)- lamed (L) (The Aleph carries an E sound). Ref: see the snapshot of Song 6:3 above, the first letter starting form the right is the Hebrew letter aleph).

Much like using an Internet acronym or text abbreviation, ELUL is a type of Hebrew acronym for the words: Ah’nee Luh-doe’dee Vuh’doe’dee Lee

The 1st letters in each Hebrew word in that phrase spell the name of the Biblical Month we are in right now… The Month of Elul

This offers us a beautiful picture with prophetic symbolism. In this we can see the connection to GOD in prayer that resides in this Month, devoting time in prayer and study, to the lover of our soul. An personal time of relationship and fellowship with GOD.

ELUL is the month on the Biblical Calendar dedicated to the search we conduct within our own soul to cleanse out all the clutter and evaluate our own actions so that we can come before GOD in earnest and rededicate ourselves to Him.

So, every time you hear yourself pronounce the word, ELUL (which I have plastered all over this BLOG, you are engaging in sweet prophetic shorthand saying, “I am my beloveds and my beloved is mine!

That’s an AMEN.
