September 18 is Rosh Hashanah/The Feast of the Trumpets, the New Year 5781. Jewish festivals have spiritual significance for Christians since Jesus observed them all. God considered these holidays, “My appointed feasts.” Besides, I am all for celebrating the Rosh Hashanah, anything to move forward, and leave 2020 behind! One sign associated with 5781 is the Ox, which will be discussed later. First, let’s explore the “double effect” that emerges when comparing the Jewish and Gregorian Calendars. So let’s read more about September 2020 prophetic word double effect rules and Ox.

Please note starting on 4-21 my monthly prophetic words will be sent directly to my email subscribers only. I’d love to have you join.

The Decade of The Mouth

The reason I decided to dive into this year’s Rosh Hashanah was last year kicked off the decade of the mouth, 5780. The eighty is “pey” in the Hebrew which means  mouth.

In 2020, the mouth took center stage, we learned the virus can enter through the mouth, which created the whole mask controversy. And then, the brutal senseless death of Mr Floyd and his haunting last words, “I can’t breathe.” His tragic death sparked a movement across the world.

As I was looking at studying the Jewish years, I found an interesting pattern developing.

Principle of Double Effect

If you add up the sum of each individual Jewish year, it equals the last two digits of the corresponding Gregorian year. As shown in the table below.

Sum of Jewish years to Gregorian Year

From this chart, the sum of the current Hebrew year equals the abbreviated Gregorian year. This continues for all through the 20’s, creating a “double effect.” It seems God is giving special weight to these years and this “double effect” is playing out in current event’s.

Double Events of 2020

We had the horrible worldwide virus along with the social unrest .This doubling effect is even occurring in our weather. Last week, I saw this headline two storms are going to hit Louisiana, the old one-two punch which pretty much sums 2020.

Double Doors of 2020

Many prophets mentioned the double doors of 2020, again the emphasis on the word “double.” Warning, I didn’t plan to write about politics in this post. But here’s the thing when I googled “scripture double doors,” Isaiah 45:1-5 is the search result. President Trump, the 45th president has been repeatedly linked with to Isaiah 45. Part of the verse is below.

Thus says the LORD to His anointed, To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held— To subdue nations before him And loose the armor of kings, To open before him the double doors, So that the gates will not be shut.

And for further support, Trump has been publicly linked to Cyrus by Israel, they even issued a commemorative coin bearing President Trump’s face along with King Cyrus.

If this doubling effect continues, it seems likely Trump might have a double term. If this doubling effect rolls through congress, it’s probable the same party will have the majority in both the U. S. Senate and Houses of Representatives.

In just two short months will see if this double effect is really a thing. In the next section we will explore the year of the Oxen.

The Trampling OX

Since the Hebrew year, 5781 ends in one, it’s represented by the aleph. In ancient Hebrew, the pictorial of the aleph is an Ox’s head. This double effect is repeated since China’s 2021 animal of the year will also be the Ox. (I almost dropped my phone when the Ox popped up on my screen.) Previously, China’s animal of the year was the rat. Extremely fitting since rats are associated with the plague. God will always confirm His word, even through a secular source.

Oxen in the Old Testament

“You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.”

Back then, an oxen’s job is to separate the corn from the husk by trampling on them. In God’s kindness, He ordered the ox’s muzzle to be removed. He thought it was cruel that the ox should be refrained while helping with the harvest. It would be like asking me to separate some food I love like potato chips or pieces of chocolate with a muzzle on my mouth!

Prophetically in September and throughout the year, there is still going to be a trampling of old ways and systems. Things that aren’t right will continue to be exposed. God’s goodness will keep being revealed. All this needs to happen to bring in the billion souls harvest, Bob Jones prophesied about. The enemy is doing everything possible to prevent this harvest of souls.

The muzzle also has significance since this is the decade of the mouth, it’s ironic we are required to wear masks. However, don’t let that stop you from speaking God’s promises over your life. For more about speaking out see my June prophetic word.

Double Honor

This muzzling of the ox is mentioned twice in the New Testament along with double honor to teaching spiritual leaders

“Give double honor to spiritual leaders who handle their duties well. This is especially true if they work hard at teaching the word [of God]. For the scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox when you are using it to thresh grain” and “Workers should be given their pay.” GOD WORD Translation”

I’m praying students, business owners, workers, and ministers are able to go back to work, naturally with precautions. Just like the muzzle on the ox not being able to eat during, harvest it’s just as it’s cruel to let business’s and churches be restricted.

The Ox Symbol of Sacrifice

The four gospels are depicted by the four living creatures, representing a different facet of Jesus. Matthew is the genuine man, Mark the royal lion, John the divine eagle, and Luke the sacrificial servant ox. Jesus told his disciples, “the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” 

Due to current circumstances it seems like I am constantly serving, my loved one which can be stressful. I have a special needs young adult and his job and the school have shut down and that has been difficult for him and me.  I need to remind myself to connect to Jesus through His word or worship and hand my burdens over to Him.

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavily laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

The Blessing of the Oxen

“But much increase comes by the strength of an ox.”

“May our oxen be loaded down with produce. May there be no enemy breaking through our walls, no going into captivity, no cries of alarm in our town squares.” Psalm 144:14

I love these double verses about increase and protection. Especially in these current times when cities are burning and businesses are being looted.

It’s encouraging the Hebrew New Year 5781 is represented by the favorable Ox. The following is a prayer over September.

Prayer

In Jesus name we ask for a positive doubling effect to go through our homes, families, and nation. Lord, we ask for the blessing of the oxen, an increased harvest, a show of Your strength and Your goodness in our lives. Help us turn our burdens and stress over to You.Trample anything that needs to go in our lives. God trample on the evil in this world, bring down whatever needs to go. We pray for a billion souls harvest to start coming into Your Kingdom. Lord protect our families, our towns, cities, and countries. Keep each one of us healthy as an ox.

Special gifts from the Lord are still available now through Rosh Hashanah, to read the details see last month’s word “Gifts”

Happy Rosh Hashanah!
