This is one of many words given, it has much encouragement and warning.
This is an easy to understand message, but it has some dual Prophetic insight to March-April-May 2016.
a-hā´va (אהוא, 'ahăwā'): The river in Babylonia
on the banks of which Ezra gathered together the Jews who accompanied him to Jerusalem. At this rendezvous the company encamped for three days to make preparation for the difficult and dangerous journey (Ezr_8:15). On reviewing the people and the priests Ezra found no Levites among them; he therefore sent to Iddo, “the chief at the place Casiphia,” a request for ministers for the temple.
Then we departed from the river of Ahava, on the twelfth day of the first month, to go unto Jerusalem,.... The month Nisan, answering to part of March and part of April; this was two days before the passover began:
The Prophecy was given, 'by May 2016 end, we would not recognize the USA as it now is', that is important to this lesson.
This is a call to fasting and diligent prayer. We do not come in fear of man, but of God. The threat was real, it was not a maybe , but certain, it was a call to trust and protection. In March-May- 2016 , leading up to this, we must seek the lord for direction. The lord will give direction, it could be another road as Gill said, or it could be another way then we are currently thinking.
It is striking that this event to go to Jerusalem was in in March the first month. March -April, is the real new year, not January or September, it is March, as God told Moses, man changed it, the lord did not.
March 2016 will be very hard, we will need the lords protection from today until we go to glory, this word is saying, we will need direction now, before March 2016. It comes by prayer and fasting, fasting is N.T. Theology. Prayer is naturally N.T. Theology, but many are praying so little when things are spiraling out of control.
I have posted before, 'we will need to cultivate and learn to hear the small still voice as it will be a matter of life or death, go there, stay here, take that road, do not take that road, go left, go right, run, hide, wait, duck, etc'. step by step help by the lords Holy Spirit the small still voice, this is a need NOW.
The lord has a direct word for you, and you must get your direct word from him, not man.
Where are the Levites today, the remnant grows smaller, many then, and now, do not want to go, they do not want change, they want to stay in Babylon, no change of routine, no change at all, but this is a call to change- with the lord's pillar by day, and fire by night, you must adapt and do whatever the lord says to you.
This message tells us in the coming 2016 year, we can have divine protection and direction.
We need this hearing with our ears what the Spirit of the lord is saying today, because DEC 2015 is not over yet, anything can happen, or nothing until Jan, 2016 , regardless of the given month, the year 2016, we will see ww3, economic collapse, and Judgments complete on the USA and the West, and other places.
WE have read about the seven year cycles, this is interesting , every 80 years events happen, every 80 years historically there are great events, the last depression started 80 years ago, 2016 is the 80th year, with the 7 month historic cycle we can see every 80 years , I mean every 80 years all throughout history major events, so if history repeats, and it almost always does, we know 2016 will be a year of great events, not good ones.
Will you beloved heed the warnings and sound a holy alarm, sound a holy gathering, as in Joel, I would say it calls for this. A fast by the remnant.
WE are at the river Ahava today, what they did in Ezra, we should do now.
What are you doing at your river Ahava? The remnant ones , not all, but many were not at that river than, and they are not today. It is the same as it was, it is not what the N.T. Teaches concerning the royal priesthood of ALL believers, where are the holy priesthood, where are the levites , the N.T. Priests of a house, where are they?
What are you doing at this river, are you seeking direction, protection, help, or are you just OK with your life as it is?
Think on this, we are all at that river today, and perilous times are on us and coming, I would say it's time to get serious .There is a time to leave this river in Babylon and move into the will of the lord and N.T. sound doctrine, that is the Jerusalem in our hearts.
Sister Sue Miller made a very good comment and I want to add it to the end of this message, great insight by my great friend, a Messianc Jew Sue said.
It leads me to this scripture: "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God,the Lord is One. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give to you today are to be upon your hearts." Deuteronomy 6:4-6
We need to love God as never before and trust in Him. Yeshua is the living water.He is the river at Ahava leading us to eternal life.
