It’s a Time Start!!!
On the morning of October 16, 2018, I woke up to the sound of the eagle call. (Coincidently, I had a soaking cd by John Belt which was playing all night and the sounds might have been coming from one of the songs). I heard the voice of the eagle chirp high above the earth. I also saw it in my dream as I was waking up. While in the dream, I then saw someone in my dream prophesying the words; “It’s a time start.” I believe several things the Lord is saying through this dream. The eagle is symbolic to the prophetic offices and the prophetic members of the body of Christ. I felt in my spirit the Lord was asking; have you made yourself ready? Have you sanctified yourselves and your army for battle? For tomorrow the Lord shall do wonders among us.—Jos 3:5 (Something huge is on the verge of bursting open) Have you yourself received strength to conceive your promise or Have you judged him “faithful” who had promised? —Heb 11:11
It’s a time start!
Time in Greek is “chronos”: Of uncertain derivation; a space of time and is properly distinguished from kairos.
Season in Greek is “kairos”: which designates a fixed or special occasion; an occasion, that is, set or proper time.
Age is “aiōn” : an age, a course, eternal, which denotes a particular period or interval;
In our charismatic and evangelical circles, we use the word “seasons” so much when we prophesy, we have lost the distinguishing factor between times and seasons, although The bible clearly shows that there is a difference between times and seasons. Instead of emphasizing a simple change in year with a new space of time for “chronos” we have labeled all changes in time as a “season” or a special occasion. Even though there can be a time change, with or without a special occasion marked to it.
And He changes the times and the seasons;
He removes kings and raises up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to those who have understanding.—Dan 2:21
We are sure of one thing after reading these scriptures is that times and seasons are not the same things, but are mentioned together due to their similarities in referencing a shift or a drastic change in time. I believe that what we are experiencing right now is not a season change, but a time change. It’s a time start! The interpretation of time start could mean a new beginning, but I believe it’s much more than just that. The impact of the grace of God in these last few months leading up to the head of the year 5779 has been releasing such acceleration in the spirit which is not common. Its a time start with a special type of acceleration attached to it. Let us seek Holy Spirit to give us wisdom and knowledge concerning this new “time” start. I believe more will be revealed in the coming months concerning this.
“Of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their command;”– 1 Chr 12:32
According to 1 Chronicles 12:32 the sons of Issachar had understanding of times and had wisdom and knowledge to instruct Israel on what to do. They were people of the Spirit of God. Along with this, Holy Spirit is releasing a “sons of Issachar” anointing to prophetic people on the earth today concerning what the Body of Christ must do to prepare for what is ahead. We must begin to call them forth and activate them to be free in this special anointing.
“Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”— Acts 1:6-8
In Acts 1:6-8 we see that there are also times and seasons which are not under our authority to know nor investigate, but are under the Father’s own authority. Simply put, we don’t have the clearance for that information. It’s also suspect that Jesus mentions, a “but” after saying what He said adding that they will then receive power, or should be correctly translated from exousia to be authority, when Holy Spirit comes upon them. I believe with Holy Spirit authority, we have the authority to know the times and seasons, except that which we do not have a clearance for.
In conclusion Jesus is actually saying is, we do have the authority through Holy Spirit to know times and seasons, but to the specific question concerning the Kingdom being restored to Israel—no. This is a very important key revelation.
One additional thing that we don’t want to fail to mention is when there is a times and seasons shift there are also the change in authorities on the earth. As it shows in Daniel 2:21 “He removes kings and raises up kings.” We should expect a congruent change in the natural and spiritual realm for rulers to be uprooted and new ones planted, both in the kingdom and in society.
“But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.”—1 Thess 5:1-2
It was generally understood based on Jesus previous teaching among His followers that concerning His return, He will come like a thief in the night. This was classified under times and seasons and it was acceptable revelation for us to know it’s coming, but not the exact moment.
The constant revelation which echoes in my spirit is;
And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!—Rev 22:17ab
