Beloved People of God,
 
This prophetic word is meant to serve us as a piecework and guideline for the new biblical year 5782/2022. We encourage every reader to pray over this word and to proclaim the plan of the Father over the coming year.
 
September, 6'th, 2021, and the New Biblical Year 5782
 
On the eve of 09/06/2021 we as Body of Christ have entered the new biblical year 5782 together with the Jewish people. This is of importance to us who have been grafted as wild olive shoots into the precious olive tree, as we partake in the fatness as the anointing of the root (cf. Romans 11:17-18).
 
Romans 11:17-18:
17 If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, 18 do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.
 
The Apple of God’s Eye
 
According to Zechariah 2:8b, Israel is the apple of God’s eye with Jerusalem functioning as His pupil; so for us as Christians from the gentile nations it is beneficial to look at our lives and environment through Israel. This will result in walking confidently and with enlightened eyes into our future with Jesus Christ.
 
Zechariah 2:8b:
… 8b for whoever touches you (Note: Israel) touches the apple of his eye.
 
The revelations we receive by this approach contain strategies helping us to position our lives in the center of the will and peace of God, just as Epaphras prayed (cf. Colossians 4:12).
 
Colossians 4:12:
12 Epaphras, who is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends greetings. He is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured.
 
The Expression of Knowledge
 
As God’s people we are currently in the biblical cycle of the ‘eighties’ that are connected to the Hebrew letter ‘Pe’ which refers to ‘mouth’. This is the decade connected to 'the verbal expression of knowledge', and thus is the basis for the coming years within this biblical decade (cf. Habakkuk 2:14 i.c.w. Proverbs 18:21).
 
Habakkuk 2:14:
14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
 
Proverbs 18:21:
21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
 
The Hebrew Letter ‘Beth’
 
The biblical year 5782 is connected with the Hebrew letter ‘Beth’, which also carries the numerical value ‘2’.
 
The Hebrew letter ‘Beth’ means ‘house’ and is also used for the ‘temple of God’. Furthermore, it has the pictographic representation of the ‘layout of a house’ and indicates the ‘inside of a house’.
 
The word ‘house – bajit’ appears for the first time in Genesis 7:1 and finds there its use in connection with the fellowship within the family of ‘Noah’ (Note: ‘rest’) as a fellowship of promise (cf. Hebrews 4:1ff.).
 
Genesis 7:1:
1 The Lord then said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation.
 
Since Jesus was born in ‘Bethlehem’, the ‘house of bread’, and is also called the ‘bread of life’ and the ‘Word of God’, it is clear that the quality of the Word of God within the fellowship of saints moving forward in Christ Jesus is at stake (cf. Micah 5:2 i.c.w. John 6:35; John 1:1; Revelation 19:13).
 
Micah 5:2:
2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”
 
John 6:35:
35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
 
John 1:1:
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
 
Revelation 19:13:
13 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.
 
Furthermore, the Word of God as the Torah, meaning the teaching of God, begins with the Hebrew letter ‘Beth’ (Note: ‘Bereshit’ means ‘in the beginning’), thus heralding the beginning of God’s creation. This ‘house’ comprises a ‘spiritual house’ since it comes forth from the mouth of God and God is Spirit (cf. John 4:24a).
 
John 4:24a:
24a God is spirit, …
 
Every ‘beginning’ initiated by God bears the distinction of being His own, since everything ‘first’ belongs to the LORD, sanctifying things to come as well as producing blessings (cf. Romans 11:16 i.c.w. Ezekiel 44:30; Proverbs 3:9-10).
 
Romans 11:16:
16 If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches.
 
Ezekiel 44:30:
30 The best of all the firstfruits and of all your special gifts will belong to the priests. You are to give them the first portion of your ground meal so that a blessing may rest on your household.
 
Proverbs 3:9-10:
9 Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; 10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.
 
The Hebrew word for ‘beginning’ also means ‘first, best, first fruit, birthplace of a time dimension in the form of a starting point’ with which the ‘inside of the house’ is filled. (word explanation taken from the Elberfelder study bible to the word ‘beginning – rē’šît’ with the word key number: 7395).
 
Thus, these explanations point to the quality of the spiritual fellowship of saints who have allowed themselves to be joined together by God’s Spirit as living stones to bear His presence together and glorify Him as Father (cf. 1 Peter 2:5 i.c.w. John 4:24).
 
1 Peter 2:5:
… 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
 
John 4:24:
“… 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
 
The Impact of Eternity in Christ on Temporal Time
 
In Christ Jesus, the supernatural realm as the eternity impacts the natural realm as the temporary time in order to bear witness to the dimension of the Father (cf. John 3:31 i.c.w. John 14:9b).
 
John 3:31:
31 The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all.
 
John 14:9b:
… 9b Anyone who has seen me (Note: Jesus Christ) has seen the Father. …
 
The impact of the supernatural world through Christ Jesus into the realm of the natural world reveals the eternal standard of God, which results in each person having to make a decision as to which world they will live or act from (cf. John 8:23).
 
John 8:23:
23 But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. …”
 
This is about the communication of the Father speaking from His inner being in His wisdom to the ‘outer world’. This wisdom can act like a wall for people who are not spiritually minded and move in humanism, so that they do not come to the knowledge of the truth because they define themselves by their own knowledge and human standards (cf. 1 Corinthians 1:20-25 i.c.w. 1 Peter 5:5b).
 
1 Corinthians 1:20-25:
20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.
22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
 
1 Peter 5:5b:
… 5b All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, …
 
What is Humanism?
 
=> Humanism is the government of the flesh and the soulish over the spiritual as well as the exaltation of the earth and its persecution over the heavenly.
The goal of humanism is to rob the purpose of God through a proud thought pattern that exalts itself above the knowledge of God.
Humanist assertions support the view that humans are their own God and thus the creators and masters of their own destiny. This results in a breeding ground for atheism, which is associated with a reversion to ancient forms of worship and encourages the influx of spiritual powers of evil that support or inspire them.
Humanism is designed by Satan to bring about the independence of creation from its Creator, which includes self-glorification and a strict self-governing existence without accountability to anything not touched or tasted by the intellect of the five senses. <= (The explanation put in ‘=>’ is based on a definition to the term ‘humanism’ from the ‘Prophet’s Dictionary’ by Paula A. Price, Ph. D.; page 269)
 
As we move in the decade of ‘Pe – mouth’ from which the ‘Beth – house’ emerges it is revealing to us that the ‘house of creation’ encompasses life in the ‘fullness of God’ which, like the universe, is continuously expanding.
 
The dimension of ‘Beth’ includes also the ‘apostolic quality’ which has its seat in the instruction of God and in the ‘triumph of Jesus’, since the Hebrew word for ‘house’ carries the numerical value ‘412’ and is related to other aspects of the communicating of God (cf. Acts 2:42.46; Acts 5:42).
 
Acts 2:42.46:
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. …
46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, …
 
Acts 5:42:
42 Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah.
 
The Birthplace of Jesus and the ‘Beth’
 
Our Lord Jesus was born in a simple shelter, which according to Isaiah 1:3a is associated with a manger and two animals, namely an ox and a donkey (cf. Luke 2:12).
 
Isaiah 1:3a:
3a The ox knows its master, the donkey its owner’s manger, …
 
Luke 2:12:
“… 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
 
We recognize in the two animals mentioned a reference to the Hebrew letter ‘Beth’, so that this is about the fellowship in the time of the Father. The word for Father in Hebrew is ‘Abba’ and begins and ends with an ‘Aleph’ which means ‘bull’, and the face of the ‘bull/ox’ is related to the ‘power of the Father’. The present ‘donkey’ is related to the ‘discernment of times’ as it is the symbol of the tribe of Issachar, who recognized and understood the times (cf. Genesis 49:14 i.c.w. 1 Chronicles 12:32).
 
Genesis 49:14:
14 “Issachar is a rawboned donkey lying down among the sheep pens. …”
 
1 Chronicles 12:32:
… 32 from Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do – 200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command; …
 
Furthermore, there were two groups of people who honored Jesus in the beginning of His ministry. They were the wise men and the shepherds.
 
These two groups of people are indicative of discerning the times and faithful leadership, as well as the proper understanding of giving into the Kingdom and communicating divine revelation (cf. Matthew 2:9-11 i.c.w. Luke 2:8.15-19).
 
Matthew 2:9-11:
9 After they (Note: the wise men) had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was.
10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.
11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
 
Luke 2:8.15-19:
8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. …
15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.
17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.
19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
 
Motto For The Year 2022
 
The Herrenhuter motto for the Gregorian year 2022 is taken from the Gospel of John 6:37, where it says:
 
John 6:37:
37 All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
 
Based on this scripture for the new Gregorian year 2022, it is clear that we as the people of God are encouraged to go boldly forward in the quality of the Word of God, which is Jesus Christ, and His instruction. And by doing so, it is that from the presence of the Sonship of God we allow the power of eternity to flow into temporary time.
 
This has the consequence that people decide for or also against the truth of God and thus choose their stay to live in the ‘upper’ enlightened or in the ‘lower’ unenlightened world.
 
Amen and Amen.
 
A spirited and sweet year 5782,
