HEBREW MONTH OF IYAR MAY 2 - MAY 30 2022
Iyar is a month of transition, time and truth. The essence of time is that it is transitional. In other words, time is always moving. It's a certain time...it's another time...it's almost time...it's not time...time is not static. Time is on the move.
Passover has passed. We have passed over, transitioned from captivity to freedom. If that is not real for you, let's say this - we are not celebrating where we are in time. We are celebrating where we are going in time. Time is a flow. An hourglass with the sand flowing through is a good mental picture. We are moving from chronos time to kairos time. We are just living our life (chronos) then we go through a transition and hit kairos (God's opportune time). In that moment, everything changes.
Chronos - you've heard the term "father time." It's an old man with a hook in one hand and an hourglass in the other. This represents there is no control over circumstances. Life basically is taking us to death. The sands of time will run out and the death hook will come and snatch us out of this life.
Kairos - can be represented by a Greek statue with wings on its feet and back and scales in its hands. It's poised for a divine opportunity that's sure to come. Kairos is the "opportune" time, the moment when everything changes. No doubt it's going to happen.
In the old days, ships used to carry cargo and were gone for months and even years at a time. After the mission, when the ship got close to the harbor, the men could see the land. They could even see their homes with family standing on the shore in anticipation. They had to wait for a certain time (kairos) when the tide rose so they wouldn't hit bottom in the shallow channel. When the lookout realized the tide was coming, he would shout, "opportune, opportune." All the crew knew what that meant. The men set the sails and got the ship ready to move. When the tide came, they were prepared for the tide - they were prepared for the moment at hand. It would take them into the harbor. They got ready for their opportune time.
You may have heard the expression, "well, when my ship comes in." Most of the time we use that for when we are in a financial strain and don't have a plan. "When my ship comes in" was a saying that came from the wives that sent their husbands and sons on ships to the sea. While the ships were out they would have to borrow money to live. The people or businesses they would borrow from or get credit from would say, when are you going to pay? "When my ship comes in." It wasn't some expression we use today in jest. They KNEW their ship would come in and when it did, everything would be taken care of.
Truth: Iyar Declarations:
• I've crossed over.
• My situation can be redeemed.
• My ship is coming in.
• I take authority over every lie.
• I scatter the voices of unbelief and doubt.
• I know the truth and it sets me free.
Every person has a time. Ecclesiastes says every thing has a time. When it's time for some thing or some one, whatever it is - it means we are positioned for victory time! Truth.

We are all warriors for truth! And truth sets us free!
