5774 – Ready to go through the Open Door?

By Myles Weiss

 

Myles mosaic closeupThe decade of “70” is coming into its 4th year. We are celebrating the Fall Feasts and beginning the year 5774. The Hebrew letter “ayin” which is the word associated with 70 is pictured by the eye. A door pictures the Hebrew letter “dalet”, the 4th letter. This coming year will include many opportunities for us…as God is opening doors.

As the seasons pass from Rosh HaShanah to Yom Kippur, let’s not lose the symbolic importance of the “day of blowing” —the Feast of Trumpets. Beyond the heavenly sound of the physical ram’s horn, there is also the picture of who we are to be as His representatives in the Earth. In our generation, we are to sound the alarm, the Good News, and the call to war as watchmen on the wall.

Notice these characteristics of the making of a shofar, and compare them to God’s dealings in your life:

The shofar and [the human life parallel]

  • Is collected at the slaughterhouse – [we must die to self] shofar
  • Boiled for 5 hours to break down the cartilage – [our outer man must yield to the Spirit of God]
  • Heated in sand to 300–500 degrees – [how often fiery trials come to refine us]
  • Removed from sand and bent until the fibers stretch – [circumstances come so endurance and patience are tested]
  • After shaping, a hole is drilled for the mouthpiece – [as we mature, we realize that the power of life and death is in the tongue)
  • Placed in cold water to harden – [the water of the Word keeps us separated to God; there is no substitute for the Scriptures as a shaping instrument]

When we allow God to have His way, we are the voice of God lifted up and released into His purposes. It is time find your destiny … and walk in the specific calling He has for you. This year, 5774 God intends for you to look for open doors of opportunity for you and I to speak words of wisdom and grace to those around us.

You are a shofar in His hands in this generation!

    I haven’t created a personal website. Please explain ” shofar, & I’ve read over the watchmen several times, !?? Signifying an important role / position before gathering. Overlooking people ??! Please I’m open to discussion. I am in power line construction. I work all day and off on weekends. I want God / Yeshua to grab me up and shake my house and I need some sign. Where do I go. I want to go to Israel / Jerusalem soon and be nice to get baptized there but I need a” you are good , you can wait but I really feel I’ve waited too long. I only feel right when I watch g.l.c.

    yes, this is exciting and god spoke this into my spirit some months back that this was a year of Him opening doors that no one could shut and to walk through the open door when I see it. I am so excited about it. I prayed that I wouldn’t miss my chance ….wouldn’t miss it. I did go through one open door and met someone very special and also am moving to a different location in Cal as well after being aware of the open door in front of me that I believe God opened. And it’s been a walk of faith that I can’t finish in my own strength but have to rely on Him to also provide all that’s needed to complete the move. I am forced to remember He is my provision He Himself is my home and my source of all that I need and I continually go to Him for my needs along the way. Can’t make anything happen on my own. Having to learn how to trust and receive and be greatful and rest in Him. You’d think that would be a good thing but it’s very unnatural for me and a constant prayer to let go and let God but also a wonderful exciting adventure!
