This book is the sequel to Seasons: God’s Timing for Special
Blessings. In preparing to write Seasons, God revealed to
me the knowledge of his weekly and seasonal blessings.
However, when I was preparing for this book, God
also revealed that there are certain hours of the day that
are reserved for special blessings. In addition, he revealed
to me that that there are special blessings in every month
as a whole in addition to certain unique blessings on
particular days of each month. Surely, he can bless at
any time, but he has reserved certain times of the day, as
well as certain days of the month and certain months as
a whole, for special, unique blessings. These are special
times which he anoints to bring about miracles, and our
job is to be aware of these times in order to receive the
There is a special anointing by God for us to accomplish
specific things in our lives at certain times of the
year. It is our responsibility to let him prepare us for these
special times and to know what to expect when those
particular times arrive. If you don’t receive the blessing
that you are expecting at a certain period of time, maybe
God is trying to make some adjustments in your life, in
order for you to receive. Just listen to the Holy Spirit and
believe to receive at the next time period.
You will be so filled with joy as you learn of his special
blessing times and how much he wants to bless us,
his children. He is working so hard to let us know when
10 HENRY WALKER
and how he wants to pour out blessings that we won’t
have room enough to contain. The first time of the day I
want to discuss is the Noon Time Blessing.
Before I start, one thing that we have to realize is that
according to the Word (Leviticus 23:32) our twentyfour-
hour period of time which includes day and night
both starts and ends at evening (6:00 p.m.). Within this
twenty-four-hour period of time, there are four evening
watches – 6:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M., 9: 00 P.M.-12:00 A.M.,
12:00 A.M.-3:00 A.M., and 3:00 A.M.-6:00 A.M.
These intimate evening watches with the Lord which
prepare us for the daily hourly blessings, are explained
later on in the book. Also, within this twenty-four-hour
period of time, 6:00 a.m. marks the first hour of the daytime
and runs to 7:00 a.m., so 7: 00 a.m. is the end of
the first hour of the day. The end of the third hour of the
day is 9:00 a.m. and this hour runs from 8:00 a.m. to
9:00 a.m. The end of the sixth hour of the day is 12:00
p.m. and this hour runs from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.,
and so forth. The daytime ends at 6:00 p.m., and the
evening watches start. The hourly blessings that we will
be talking about occur exactly at the end of the third,
sixth, seventh, ninth, eleventh hours of the day, as well
as Midnight (9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m.,
5:00 p.m. and Midnight). The beginning of the hour of
the blessed time is when God is preparing you for the
blessing, and the devil may be trying to distract you from
the blessing. For example, God may want to bless you at
the third hour of the day (9:00 a.m.). At 8:00 a.m. God
is moving to prepare you for this blessing, and the devil
wants to distract you to miss the third hour blessing that
will occur at exactly 9:00 a.m.
The particular blessings that are attached to a certain
hour of time correlate with the various time zones
people are in. God is powerful enough to move uniquely
on anyone’s time zone. Start praying and preparing for
these blessings in advance. The way to prepare for these
blessings is to allow God to mortify the deeds of your
flesh daily (Romans 8:13) and continue to allow God to
change you into the image of Jesus. You cannot receive
the blessings that are outlined in this book without
We need to start basing our spiritual walk with Jesus
on the Hebrew calendar, in order to be on his timetable.
As a result, on my website, (www.henrywalker.org) I
have prepared the current and future dates on both the
Hebrew calendar and the Gregorian calendar when the
monthly periods begin and end. Just click on Biblical
Calendar on my website. On the same location I also
have the future dates for the feasts days on both calendars.
On the top of my Biblical Calendar page there
is a link to the Hebrew Calendar. You can use this link
(www.hebcal.com/hebcal) to find out when a particular
day on the Hebrew calendar falls on the Gregorian calendar.
When you are on this Web site please check off
“show Hebrew date for entire date range” under “Other
Options.” Please remember that the twenty-four-hour
period of time which includes day and night runs from
sundown to sundown. Remember that God works on his
calendar, which is the Hebrew, or biblical, calendar.
THE HOUR OF POWER
God deals with us in hourly intervals at times. In a particular
hour that God moves, you can feel him prompting
you in the spirit. He wants to do something special
for you at that actual hour, and he is truly moving on the
scene to do so.
In 1 Peter 1:6–7, Paul says to rejoice if you are going
through trials and temptations because Jesus Christ will
appear on the scene to help you. So you may be going
through something bad, but God is alerting you to the
fact that he is now moving on your behalf during a particular
hour of the day. What the enemy tries to do, if
allowed, is follow what Jesus is doing and try to distort
this particular hour of blessing. What he tries to do is
distract you from God’s presence and get you to focus
on some problem he is setting up. He is hoping that you
miss what God is trying to do in your life by taking away
your expectation. Satan hopes that you will put all your
attention on his circumstance. He wants you to think
that he controls this hour and not God.
Satan doesn’t act with sovereignty. He works for
God! He tried to rebel against God, but God subdued
him and cast him out of heaven to the earth. He is controlled
by God. God gives him his assignments. When
Satan approached God as recorded in the book of Job, it
was God who suggests Job. He said, “Have you considered
my servant Job?” He gave Satan the assignment to
test Job. All Satan was doing was coming to the boss and
getting his next assignment!
14 HENRY WALKER
God controls everything and everybody. All things
were created by Jesus and for Jesus, and by him all things
consist (Colossians 1:16–17). So, God controls Satan.
He has no power unless God gives it to him.
In Revelation 3:10, Jesus talks about the hour of
temptation. As I mentioned before, God chooses an hour
to bless you, and the devil may try to invade that hour
to make it his hour of temptation. This is evident in the
third chapter of Daniel. In verse 6, King Nebuchadnezzar
says that if anyone in the kingdom refuses to worship the
image he set up, that person will be killed in the same
hour. In verse 13, the king arrests the three Hebrew children
(who refused to worship the pagan image), so this
hour of time has now started! As we know from verses
29 and 30, the Hebrew children got promoted, so could
it be that God ordained this hour? God chose an hour to
bless the children and was only using Nebuchadnezzar
to set up the whole event. Nebuchadnezzar throws them
into the fiery furnace, and they are not harmed, even
though the king turns the fire up seven times hotter.
God set up this event to show his power and to promote
the Hebrew children. God controlled the hour
and actually chose that very hour to bless those children!
The hour of God’s blessing the three children ended
when the king made a decree in verse 29 that everybody
should worship the God of the Hebrew children. Also,
at the end of the hour, he also promoted the children as
recorded in verse 30, which is just what God wanted to
do during this hour.
So you see, God has reserved hourly blessings for his
people. Again, as he starts prompting you in your spirit,
be aware and expect him to bless you at the end of that
hour. Also, don’t be surprised if the devil tries to distract
you from what God is doing. The Word says in
Revelation 8:1 that there was silence in heaven for half
an hour. So when the devil is trying to distract you during
the hour that God is moving, keep quiet for half an
hour, worship God during the remaining half hour, and
then expect the blessing at the end of the hour!
Please remember in the succeeding chapters that
God wants to move during that hour to change your life.
Please expect it and allow him to do so. But again, don’t
let the devil distract you during that hour.
NOON TIME BLESSING
(Sixth Hour of the Day)
Remember that the main requirement to receive these
hourly blessings, or any blessing from God, is to allow
him to continue to change us into the image of Jesus.
This is imperative! God is always interested in the spiritual
blessings first. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God
and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added
unto you” (Matthew 6:33).
I want to start with the noon time blessing because
God has shown me more about this hour than any other
hour of the day. The noon time blessing happens exactly
at noon. The first indication of this blessing is recorded
in Genesis 43 in the story of Joseph. His brothers come
to him for food, and he recognizes them, but they don’t
recognize him. He sends them back to bring their
youngest brother, Benjamin. He also puts the money
they paid him in their sacks as they leave. They get back
to Jacob, their father, and he tells them to take Benjamin
to Joseph and take double the money and other presents
for Joseph. When they get to Joseph, they present
the gift to Joseph at noon as they eat together (verses
25–26). There is a great anointing on this hour to receive
a blessing through the very same people who want to
hurt you. As you know, the brothers are the ones who
turn Joseph over to slavery.
It doesn’t matter what plans your enemies have
against you and what they might have already tried. God
18 HENRY WALKER
has anointed the noon time for you to receive unexpected
blessings through such people. They are being
forced to do this because God has given you authority
over them. You are now the head; they are the tail. You
are now above; they are below. God has reversed the
tables. He has given you the advantage. All Joseph has
to do is forgive his brothers and treat them nicely. This
was an unexpected blessing and one that he didn’t even
need. The same thing could happen to you. Just start
preparing at the beginning of the day, which is sundown
for this special noon time blessing that can occur.
Another thing that happens in this story is that
Joseph and his brothers sit together and no Egyptian sits
near them. There is a separation anointing at this time,
and God could be starting to pull people out of your life.
This separation could start with a noon day phone call,
where somebody in your life says he or she is moving to
another location. You just have to realize that there is a
separation anointing on this hour to help you achieve
your purpose by removing people from your life who are
obstacles. You have to be willing to let them go.
This separation anointing could also remove situations
out of your way, by finally having them be resolved,
in your favor. In my own life, I was working on a situation
for over three months and expecting God to give
me the victory. Finally, on a particular day at noon, I got
the phone call that the situation had been resolved in
my favor. Praise God! At that time, God had just started
dealing with me about this noon time blessing. He really
demonstrated this truth. Whatever is coming against
you and is nagging at your mind, release it to God, and
expect at every noon time for it to be resolved in your
favor until it is.
You can also expect God to separate you from the
things that are coming between you and him (i.e. hidden
sins and sinful habits). Just tell God that your number
one prayer is for him to conform you to the image
of Jesus. The Word says in Romans 8:13 that only the
Spirit of God can “mortify” the deeds of the flesh. Only
God can strengthen us enough not to sin. Allow him
to separate you from your sins and fleshly desires. All
we can do is make a quality decision that we don’t want
to sin and by his power, especially at noon time, he can
remove the power of these sins from your life once and
for all. Praise him!
Another thing that happened in the Joseph story is
that, by an act of God, all the brothers sit at the table
in the order of their birthright. This is truly amazing!
There is such an anointing at this time to bring order
to your family. At a particular noon time, he can start
the process of bringing order into the lives of your loved
ones. You might get a phone call from a runaway son
or daughter at noon time and hear that he or she wants
to come home. There is no telling what God can do.
All you have to do is prepare and expect. You may get a
phone call from your spouse that he or she was just born
again. He can start to bring order out of a family trial
at noon time, no matter how long it has been going on.
Joseph gives the youngest brother, Benjamin, five
times as much as the others. There is such an anointing
on this time to bless the least likely (i.e. to make the last
to be first). You may feel that you are the least likely to be
blessed, but there is an anointing on this hour to prove
you wrong. Just think about David, the least likely in the
eyes of man but chosen by God to be king. God loves to
raise up the underdog. Just maintain your humility with
God’s help and watch what he does for you.
This noon meal with Joseph also puts into motion
20 HENRY WALKER
abundance for all the brothers. In Genesis 44:1, after
their meal, Joseph tells his servants to fill his brothers’
sacks with food and return their money in the same
sacks. This is a time for God to put into motion a blessing
that costs you nothing, an abundance. Just allow God
to prepare you and cleanse you by the Word, and watch
his anointing for abundance to start working in your life.
This meal also triggers the event where Joseph reveals
his identity to his brothers. There is an anointing on the
noon time hour for Jesus, who is our brother, as well as
our God, to reveal more about himself to us. We find out
more of what he really is like as he draws us closer to
him, especially at noon.
In 2 Samuel chapter 4, there is another revelation
about this blessing. In verses 5–7, it is recorded that two
men kill one of the main enemies of King David at noon.
As I mentioned earlier, God can separate people from
your life (I don’t mean kill them), but here he shows that
he can use somebody else to move them out of your life.
Wow! He really is awesome.
Remember in Judges 3 how God uses a man named
Ehud to secretly kill the enemy king who had kept them
in bondage for eighteen years (verse 21). God uses one
man to rescue a whole nation. Get ready for God to use
others to separate you from situations and people, starting
Another example of this blessing is contained in
1 Kings 18:19–40. Here Elijah challenges 850 false
prophets in front of all Israel. He challenges them to
call upon their God to burn up a sacrifice, a bullock. At
noon, they start to call upon their God (Baal) until the
evening sacrifice (3:00 p.m.), but to no avail. God has
the devil bound up. This is evident because in the book
of Revelation, the False Prophet will call down fire from
heaven. God has bound Baal. God starts binding the
devil from certain areas of your life at this time. Praise
This time period (12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.) is a great
time wherever possible to schedule meetings on important
issues because the devil is bound. You will find that
the meetings will go smoother. If you are being attacked
and there is a meeting that has been arranged against
you between these hours, you need to rejoice. Go into
the meeting confident that you have the victory already
in hand because the devil is bound! Of course, God can
give you victory at any time of day, but there is a special
anointing on this time period.
At this same event (Elijah and the false prophets),
God does send down fire from heaven and burn up the
sacrifice, along with the altar. God shows up for Elijah,
starting at noon, and he will do the same for you. He
wants to show up when you are being challenged for
him. If you feel that you are being closed in by circumstances
or people, allow God to rise to the challenge,
starting at noon.
David mentions how he prays to God at noon in
Psalm 55:17, and he delivered David from his enemies
(verse 18). The event concerning Elijah and the false
prophets also starts rain after a three-and-a-half-year
drought (1 Kings 18:45). At noon time, he can start
raining down blessings on you to let you know that the
drought in your life is over.
This event also triggers an enemy in Elijah’s life
called Jezebel, who God later destroys by the hand of
Jehu (2 Kings 9:33). Remember that when God starts
blessing, the devil may start messing, but God will take
care of him. Just walk in your blessing.
In Song of Solomon 1:7, God says that he makes his
22 HENRY WALKER
flock to rest at noon. This is a great time just to turn
over everything to God and allow him to move on every
situation that is coming against you. It is a great time
to watch him move as you and I get out of the way. It is
such a great time to come into his presence and pour out
to him. It is a time set up by him for communion with
During this time, he can tell us how much he loves us
and can speak beautiful words of encouragement. Here
in verse 9 he compares us to a company of Egyptian
horses belonging to Pharaoh. Pharaoh’s horses are noted
for their swiftness and beauty. In the sight of Christ, his
people are the excellence of the earth. It is so great to
hear this in his presence, especially if you are tired and
under attack. He knows just how to say the right thing
to let us know how much he loves us at just the right
time. In verses 10–17 he describes our beauty in his sight
because of our righteous standing that he gave us and
our walk of holiness. He is so happy when his people
allow him to sanctify them on a daily basis and conform
them into the image of his dear Son.
This noon day rest is so important and confirmed in
the book of Hebrews. In Hebrews 4:2, Paul mentions
that it takes faith to enter his rest and release situations
over to him. It is a matter of ceasing from one’s
own works (verse 10). It takes work to enter into his
rest (verse 10). It may not be easy to get your hands off
a situation. God can’t move sometimes until you don’t.
In verse 12 Paul talks about the Word of God being so
powerful. This is what happens when we enter that noon
time rest. His Word is able to get into the situation and
annihilate what is coming against you. So please labor to
enter his rest, especially at noon. This rest is for you and
I. Enjoy it!
In Isaiah 58:10, God starts talking about some more
blessings that can start to occur around the noon time.
In verse 10 he talks about bringing his people out of
obscurity if they help the hungry and satisfy the afflicted
soul. You may have been laboring so long and seen few
results and feel that it seems that nobody knows you
exist, but this is a time where he can begin to bring you
out of obscurity.
Look what he does with David, as recorded in 1
Samuel 16. God sends a prophet by the name of Samuel
right to David’s house to anoint one of Jesse’s sons as
king. Wow! That is favor. Samuel looks at every other
son that Jesse, the father of David, has and each time
God says they are not the one. He finally asks Jesse if
he has any other sons. Jesse has to think for a while and
remembers David (verse 11).
David is really in obscurity when his father forgets
about him. David is the type of person God loves to
raise up, (i.e. one who has the odds against him). That
description sounds like some of us. Samuel says that
nobody will eat until David comes to the table, and
Samuel anoints him as king right in the midst of his
family. He really takes him out of obscurity. I am sure
that when David comes against Goliath, this event is on
his mind. God wants to start pouring out favor on your
life like he did with David, starting at noon time.
In Isaiah 58:11, another thing is that God will guide
us continually and make some adjustments if needed. At
noon, if we could just stop from our labors and rest in
his presence, he could get us on the right course if need
be. How much time and effort his people can save if they
allow God to make these adjustments!
In 2 Samuel chapter 5, David is winning battle after
battle against the Philistines. He asks God again if he
24 HENRY WALKER
should go against the enemy at Rephaim and if he will
win. God tells him to “wait for the sound of the wind
coming through the mulberry trees” (verses 22–23).
This time he wants David to come behind them. You
see, God tells David to rest and instructs him to make a
correction in what he is planning to do. God knows he
has to make a correction, even though David is having
one success after another. He may need to do the same
thing with you. Allow him to do so any time he wants,
but especially at noon.
In Isaiah 58, God also mentions some other blessings
he could start at noon time. When you are going through
a dry place, he can “satisfy your soul in drought” (verse
11). He can “make fat your bones,” (i.e. start building
you up in the Word at this time). He can give you a
revelation from the Word that will ignite a fire in you to
read his Word without ever wanting to stop.
He also says in verse 11 that we can be like “a watered
garden whose waters fail not.” He can deposit an anointing
in you at this time of day that will never run out. As
soon as his anointing goes through to somebody else, as
you minister, it will immediately be replenished. Certain
ministers won’t have to worry about what a ministry trip
will cost. God could already have it covered with such a
large blessing that the minister won’t even think twice
about the cost. Praise him! He can start all this at noon.
Just get into his presence. It is truly an anointed time.
In verse 12 he mentions that he can bring out an
anointing on some people at this time of day to get into
people’s deepest needs. He mentions that we can “build
the old waste places.” He can use us to restore hope to
people who have no hope and have given up on their
dreams. He can ignite a fire in us that will never burn
out. He also says we can raise up the foundations of
many generations. He can anoint us to teach truths from
his Word that can affect generations in families.
Look how God uses Peter in Acts 10. God sends
him to Cornelius’s house to tell them some new truths.
He tells them about Jesus and how he was anointed to
destroy the works of the devil (verse 38). As Peter speaks,
the Holy Ghost falls on them, and they all are filled with
the Spirit (verse 44). We can have this same power.
Also, in Isaiah 58:12, he says we can repair people’s
lives. We can be spiritual carpenters for Jesus. He can
start to bring an anointing out of us to repair people’s
dreams and lives stronger than they ever were. When a
car engine is repaired and rebuilt, it can run better than
a new engine. It really depends on the person doing
the repairing. God wants to repair his children’s lives
through us and start bringing out this anointing at noon
time. He just loves to start people’s lives over. Allow him
to bring this anointing out of you.
He also mentions in the same verse that we can
restore people’s paths. He can use us to give direction to
people where there is none. If we desire to help give our
kids direction when needed, how much more does our
heavenly Father want to do the same with his children?
He also mentions that he can “feed us with the heritage
of Jacob.” In looking back on the life of Jacob, we
can see that God really blesses him. In Genesis 27:28–
29 Isaac, his father, pronounces great blessings on him.
Among the blessings are: people will serve him and
cursed will be everyone who curses him, and blessed will
be everyone who blesses him.
In Genesis 28:3–4, his father also says that God will
make him fruitful, multiply him, that he will be a multitude
of people, and that he and his seed will inherit the
land where they are strangers.
26 HENRY WALKER
In Genesis 48, Joseph brings his two sons, Manasseh
and Ephraim, before Jacob, his father, to be blessed.
Instead of putting his right hand on Manasseh, the firstborn,
he puts his right hand on Ephraim, the younger
(verse 14). God can put his right hand on you to receive
this kind of blessing at this noon time. This is a blessing
that others may feel that they should receive, but God
has it reserved for you.
In Joshua 16, the tribe of Ephraim receives their
inheritance in the new land. In verse 8 the Word says that
their “goings out thereof were at the sea.” Their inheritance
goes out so far that it is beyond their imagination.
Because of Jesus, the blessing of Abraham is ours. It is
truly an inheritance and because we are Abraham’s seed,
through Jesus, it is ours.
Jesus was before Abraham ( John 8:58). Abraham’s
blessing flowed right to Ephraim and on to us because of
Jesus! Receive the blessing of Ephraim on you right now
by faith in Jesus. You need to claim this inheritance, and
if your number one prayer is to conform to the image
of Jesus, then the benefits of this inheritance are on the
way. God is saying that we can be blessed the same way,
and it can start at a particular noon time. Wow!
In Jeremiah 6:4, he mentions that noon is a time to
declare war. This is also a great time to start an attack on
Satan and the strongholds he has on people’s lives. This
is a great time to intercede and bring down strongholds.
Go on the attack.
As I mentioned in my book Seasons, the day, according
to the Word, our twenty-four-hour period of time
which includes day and night both starts and ends at
evening (Leviticus 23:32). Please take advantage of this
and start your prayers, including warfare prayers, at sunNOON
down. Don’t wait until the morning. The devil may have
already put his plan for you that day into action.
In Matthew 20:5–6, people are called into labor at
different hours of the day. People are called into service
at the sixth hour (noon). As a result, there is also a great
anointing at this hour for God to call people into his
service and follow him, at any cost. There is also a great
anointing on this hour to give people their assignments
(marching orders). This is a revelational period of time
for God to give and confirm purpose. If you are not sure
about what purpose he has for you, just sit in his presence
and soak. He is always willing to communicate,
especially at this hour. Please take advantage.
Concerning the sixth hour of the day (noon): in
Matthew 27:45, when Jesus is dying, there is darkness
from the sixth hour until the ninth hour. Between this
time (12 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.), special prayer needs to be
made against the kingdom of darkness. The Spirit of
God is trying to alert us to these special times of the
day. This sixth hour to the ninth hour is a critical time
period! We can thwart the plans of darkness during this
time! Please intervene in people’s lives as the Spirit gives
you knowledge. Pull down the strongholds of darkness
in their lives.
This time period is also a great time for God to hide
you in his presence from any plans the enemy may have.
Darkness hides Jesus during this time. Stay hidden!
Don’t be drawn out by the enemy ahead of God’s timing.
The fact that Esther is a Jew is hidden from others
until the right time. As a matter of fact, her Hebrew
name is Hadassah, which means hidden one (Please read
my book Seasons, chapter 11, for more information on
In Acts 10:9–23, Peter is on his rooftop praying at
28 HENRY WALKER
this sixth hour when he sees a vision of unclean animals.
God is preparing him to meet three Gentiles who are
coming to bring him to Cornelius. The Jews consider the
Gentiles to be unclean. Peter goes with them, and God
uses him to minister at Cornelius’s house, and the whole
family is filled with the Holy Ghost (verses 44–48).
As you can see, the sixth hour is also a great time to
prepare you to minister to people whom you least expect.
Be attentive to God’s voice. Get your own pre-conceived
ideas out of the way. Cornelius and his family are anxious
to hear what Peter has to say. They are hungry for
the Word (Acts 10:33). Maybe you are ministering to
people who are taking for granted what you are preaching.
Maybe God has a group that will gobble up everything
you have to say, just like with Peter. Someday at
noon, he might start bringing this group to you, searching
you out. This group of people may be the least likely
you ever expected God to bring your way. Stay open to
As I mentioned, this time period is also a great time
for God to hide you in his presence from any plans the
enemy may have. Stay hidden! Again, don’t be drawn
out by the enemy ahead of God’s timing. Remember in
1 Kings 19:11–12, as Elijah is hiding in the cave, there
is a great wind which rends the mountains and breaks
rocks. After the wind, there is an earthquake and then a
fire. He only comes out when he hears the Lord’s small,
still voice. Again, stay hidden and wait for God’s timing.
In John 4:6, it is recorded that Jesus sits down at the
well in Samaria at the sixth hour, or noon. He meets
a Samaritan woman there, and there are at least four
things that happen at this meeting that affect the future
1. There is a revelation from Jesus about the
living water (verses 10–15). He is talking
about receiving the in-filling of the Holy
Ghost. This time is an anointed time to
receive. God has chosen this time as a special
time to indwell his people. Of course,
he can in-fill at any time but has chosen
this time especially. Come into his presence
2. Jesus reveals himself as the Messiah. Pray
especially for non-believers to receive this
knowledge of who Jesus really is. Most
assuredly, Jesus is moving at this time to
open hearts. Pray that God removes the
blinders and scales from their eyes.
3. In addition, Jesus moves in the word of
knowledge and wisdom so effectively
(verses 18, 39–42). He tells not only the
lady, but others too, all that is in their
hearts. Expect God to pour out through
you these and the other gifts, especially at
4. He also talks about the great harvest that
is ready to be harvested (verses 35–36). At
this hour, ask him to pour out his gifts to
reach the souls that need to be harvested.
He tarries there two days (verse 43). He
ministers to the people during that time.
Look for God to accelerate using you in
his gifts at this hour and maybe even continuing
the intensity for at least two days.
Here is a summary of possible blessings that can be
expected at the noon time hour:
1. Anointing to receive a blessing from those
who wanted to hurt you.
30 HENRY WALKER
2. Separation anointing to remove people,
circumstances, and sinful habits from
your life once and for all. God can use an
unlikely person to remove a problem from
3. Anointing to bring order into families and
other everyday situations.
4. Anointing to bless the least likely.
5. Abundance that will never run out.
6. Jesus can reveal more about himself to us
in a greater way.
7. Devil is especially bound at this time.
8. God will show up on your behalf.
9. God can start to rain down blessings in
your life to let you know that the drought
10. Special time to enter into God’s rest.
11. Time to start bringing you out of obscurity.
12. He can also start to make some adjustments
to guide us in his way for our lives.
13. Can pour out an anointing on some of us
to get at the deepest needs of people.
14. Can anoint some of us to be spiritual carpenters
for him to repair people’s lives and
15. To anoint some to give direction and the
restoring of paths to some of his children.
17. Blessings of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
can start to be manifested mightily.
18. God can start bringing judgment on some
of your adversaries.
19. God’s glory can shine on you in such a
greater way that as a result, he could be
reversing an enemy attack against you.
20. God can start using you as he promises in
Isaiah 61 (i.e.” bind up the broken hearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,” etc.).
21. Time to declare war, attack Satan and his
works. He is especially weak at this time
(12:00 to 3:00 p.m.).
22. Pray for the unsaved at this time; great
anointing to call people into his service.
23. Special time to hide from Satan’s plans in
the presence of your Father.
24. Time to prepare you to minister to people
whom you least expect.
25. Special time to receive the in-filling of the
26. Special anointing from God to remove
blinders from people’s hearts so they can
really see who Jesus is.
27. An acceleration of God using you in the
Gifts of the Spirit.
THIRD HOUR OF THE DAY
The third hour of the day is 9:00 a.m. (Again, remember
that there is preparation needed before every hourly
blessing, especially at the beginning of the hour of blessing.
The devil would like to distract you directly preceding
this and every hour of blessing.)
We first hear of this third hour in Matthew 20:3.
Here people are called to labor in the vineyard at this
hour, according to the parable that Jesus told. On this
time of the day, there is such an anointing by God to call
people to follow him into service. Be aware of this truth
and start praying in that direction around 9:00 a.m. Pray
for certain individuals whom God puts on your heart to
follow Jesus into his service, to be born again. There is
such a wonderful anointing at this time to pray people
into the Kingdom. We have to take advantage of God’s
In verse 18, Jesus says that he is going to Jerusalem
to be betrayed and to die. Accepting this call to the service
of Jesus means that you have to follow him no matter
where it leads. Paul says in Acts 20:22 that he goes
bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things
that were waiting there for him. The only thing he
knows is that bonds and afflictions are waiting for him
there (verse 23). He also says in the next verse that none
of these things move him. He was called into God’s service
and was willing to follow him no matter where he
34 HENRY WALKER
led. He also knew that no weapon formed against him
would prosper. He also says in 2 Corinthians 4:18 that
he is not influenced by what he sees in the natural. At
this hour of the day, God is calling people to follow him,
no matter what the cost.
Another revelation about the third hour of the day,
or 9:00 a.m., is contained in Acts 2. At this hour (verse
15), the Apostles are in one accord in the temple when
suddenly the Spirit of God comes rushing in and fills the
house (house of God). (They were in the upper room for
prayer but the infilling took place in the temple as the
feast of Pentecost was one of the feasts where they were
obligated to be in the temple. Please see verse 46 in Acts
2 as the word says “that they continued in the temple”).
At this time of the day, God can not only fill you with his
Spirit, but also fill every empty area of your life. Believe
for God to fill you with his power, if you are not filled,
but also to start making all your crooked places straight
and your rough places smooth.
People from all over the world who were in Jerusalem
came running toward the temple. There is such a strong
anointing on this time to attract people to your ministry
and to your life in general. Look for God to start
increasing his favor in your life at this time. As you pray
during this time, believe for this particular moving of
God in your life.
Also at this time in the temple, Peter, under the
inspiration of the Holy Ghost, says that the “last days”
are started, at this hour (verses 16–17). He said that the
time Joel prophesied about had started. He mentions in
verses 17–21 that certain things would start to happen
at this hour (i.e. more people would have dreams and
visions from God, that God would pour out more power
on his people, that he would show more wonders and
signs, etc.). At this hour of the day (9:00 a.m.), we can
pray and expect God to manifest himself in these ways
in a greater measure!
Also, three thousand people are saved on that day
(verse 41). This great harvest starts at this hour. In view
of this anointing on this hour, we can pray and believe
for a greater harvest of souls (verse 47).
Here is a summary of the possible blessings that can
be expected at the third hour of the day, or 9:00 a.m.:
1. Anointing to call people into God’s service,
and more people will respond, no
matter what the cost.
2. Anointing to fill every area of your life!
3. God can begin to attract more people to
4. God can begin to show more of his power
through signs and wonders in your life.
5. God can pour out more anointing to bring
a great harvest of souls.
SEVENTH HOUR OF THE DAY
In the Gospel of John 4:46–54, there is a story about the
ill son of a nobleman. His father (the nobleman) comes
to Jesus and Jesus speaks the word that his son is healed.
He believes the word and starts on his way home. On
the way home his servants meet him and tell him that
the son got better at the seventh hour, or 1:00 p.m. (verse
52). This was the exact time that Jesus said that his son
was whole (verse 50).
There is a special healing anointing at this time of
day. Of course, God can heal at any time, but he has
reserved this time for his healing power to flow. This
is a special time, and you need to take advantage of it,
especially with a family member who may be sick. Just
stand on God’s Word and claim the healing anointing
that flows from Jesus. He is pouring out at this time, just
receive! Just stand on Jesus’ Word just like the nobleman
does (verse 50). John says in verse 54 that this is the
second miracle Jesus performs. Therefore, this seventh
hour, or 1:00 p.m., must be important.
Generally, the number seven in the Word means that
God is about to complete something, to perfect what
is not right. Sickness is something that could render
somebody incomplete. At this hour, God can pour out a
completion anointing into your life to complete the trial
you are going through or to complete a blessing process
he has started.
38 HENRY WALKER
In the Word, the number seven means that the blessing
God intends for you to receive by going through
a possible trial has already been spoken in heaven and
can now be received. It has already been released in the
supernatural. It will be revealed in the natural. Hold on!
Your victory over the trial has already been assured, if
you keep going. Let’s look at the Word for the use of the
number seven by the Holy Spirit, either in the chapters,
or specifically in the passages. In Genesis 7:1, God says
that he sees Noah and his family righteous. This means
that they will come through their trial with a blessing,
no matter what happens to anyone else. God confirms
this when he told them to take clean beasts by sevens
into the ark. Also, in verse 4, God says it would rain
in seven days. This is an additional sign that they will
come through their trial, by using the number seven.
The mention of rain and the number seven show you
also that at this hour, blessings can start to rain on you.
In Genesis 21:29, Abraham gives the enemy king
seven lambs in order to enter into a covenant with him.
The enemy had been destroying Abraham’s wells of
water. The king is very upset at what his troops are doing
and this covenant ends Abraham’s trial.
In Genesis 29:27, the Word says that Jacob would
serve another seven years for the hand of Rachel in marriage.
The trial of Jacob being tricked by Laban is now
over by the use of the number seven.
In Genesis 41, the Word describes the two dreams
that the Pharaoh has, and both contain the number
seven (verse 1–7). The use of the number seven signifies
that the trial that Joseph was going through is now close
to being over and the blessing that God intends for him
is soon to be realized.
In Exodus 7:4–5, God demonstrates that he already
speaks blessing on his people as they are going through
the trial. “Bring my people out of the land of Egypt,”
and he confirms this by using the number seven in verse
25. The word says in this verse that when God turned
the waters into blood, it lasted for seven days.
In Daniel 3:19, King Nebuchadnezzar heats the fiery
furnace seven times hotter for the three Hebrew children.
This signifies again that God is about to deliver
them from their trial and promote them, which happened,
as recorded in verse 30.
In Esther 1:10, on the seventh day of the king’s feast,
Queen Vashti is called to come and perform but refuses.
The use of the number seven here signifies that Esther is
going to take her place after she goes through preparation
and a trial. God is trying to show all who read the
book of Esther by the use of the number seven that he
will make a way for them through a trial and raise them
up to take somebody’s place. He will complete the promotion
In Psalm 119:164, David says that he would praise
God seven times a day because of his righteous judgments.
He knew that God would complete judgment in
favor for him.
In Acts 6:3, Stephen is chosen to be one of the seven
disciples to minister to the widows. The use of the number
seven here signifies that Stephen would be persecuted
and go through a tremendous trial, but would be
promoted. This happens as Stephen is stoned and sees
Jesus standing in power. Jesus stands up for him because
Stephen didn’t deny his name as he is being stoned but
asks for the forgiveness of the ones stoning him (Chapter
It is so important for you to remember that God has
already spoken your portion that you will receive. He has
40 HENRY WALKER
already turned it loose. Just start to receive. He is completing
a blessing process that began when the trial you
are going through began. Search the Word, and you will
see so many scriptures encouraging you at this seventh
NINTH HOUR OF THE DAY
This ninth hour of the day is also a time where God calls
people into his service as recorded in Matthew 20:5.
Believe at this hour for God to stir people up for service,
especially loved ones. This is a great time to stand on
God’s Word and claim this parable in people’s lives.
The ninth hour is also when Jesus died. As recorded
in Matthew 27:45, there was darkness from the sixth
hour (12:00 p.m.) until the ninth hour (3:00 p.m.).
Believe that the time when the enemy was moving in
your life is over. His attack is over. The power of darkness
in the attack is over. You have your victory because
of what Jesus accomplished in his death. When Jesus
says, “It is finished,” the power of Satan is broken. Praise
Jesus! He says this at 3:00 p.m. You can do the same by
telling the devil that his attack is over. You already have
the victory. At this time of the day start proclaiming victory
for people whom God puts on your heart. Shout
their names and declare victory for them no matter what
the situations in their lives look like.
This hour of the day is also an exceptional time of
celebration of what Jesus has accomplished for you and
me. Take time at this hour to praise him. Take time to
worship him. The time allotted to the devil in the trial is
over. His time ran out. God controls everything, including
the time period of the devil’s influence. Isn’t God
wonderful? At this hour, start enforcing this end of the
42 HENRY WALKER
devil’s time by claiming it and praising God for it. God
set up this time period for a daily blessing. The devil may
have told you that the attack was going to go on forever,
but no! It is over at 3:00 p.m. Attack the devil with
this promise that his influence is over at this time period
because Jesus said so, when he said, “It is finished.”
Also at this hour, the veil of the temple is torn by
God from top to bottom (Matthew 27:51). Claim at this
time, that God is making a way, an opening for you. He
is opening a Red Sea for you. He is making a way where
there seems to be no way. No matter who or what is
against you, claim this breakthrough at this time. Claim
that just as the veil of the temple is torn by God, he
has made a way for you. Of course, we know God can
make a way at any time, but there is a special anointing
at this time of day. Also claim breakthroughs for others,
for God to make a way for them also. Lift up their names
Also at this hour, graves open and many bodies of
the saints arise (verse 52). There is a special anointing at
this hour for God to break people out of their situations.
Where they may feel buried under the circumstances,
God’s resurrection power is now there to bring them out!
God rubs this right in Satan’s face. Satan thought he had
you buried under worry, sickness, fear, doubt, and uncertainty,
but here comes God at 3:00 p.m. to bust you out.
He makes a way out after Satan did all that he could do
to prevent your breakout of his prison. It doesn’t matter
how long Satan has had you buried or how deep. When
this hour rolls around, claim your deliverance based on
what happened at 3:00 p.m. on the day Jesus gave up his
life. We don’t have to wait for Resurrection Sunday to
receive resurrection power. This is a daily time to receive
this power over the circumstances coming against you!
Allow the same power that busted Jesus out of the tomb,
and these others at the time he died, bust you out of the
mess you are in. Be untied and untie others.
In Acts 3:1, the ninth hour of the day or 3:00 P.M.
was a time of prayer. I think since Jesus died at this time,
it might be a great time each day to pray and meditate
on His sacrificial death for us. This special time of 3:00
p.m., when Jesus died and bodies of some saints arose,
could also be pointing to the Rapture. The Word says in
1 Thessalonians 4:14, “for if we believe that Jesus died
and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus
will God bring with him.”
In verse 16, the Word says that the dead in Christ
will rise first. From my book Seasons, we know that the
Rapture of the Church may take place on some Feast
of Trumpets (Rosh HaShannah) in the future. Could
this event also happen at 3:00 p.m. ( Jerusalem time,
since we all go up together)? This is the greatest blessing
that could ever happen at 3:00 p.m. Also, the Word
talks about the Rapture occurring at the Last Trump (1
Corinthians 15:52). The armies of Israel would assemble
in a pre-arranged location at the sound of the first trump
then begin to march at the sound of the second trump.
The Word also says in Revelation 8:1 that there was
silence in heaven for a half hour. Is it possible that we
will be waiting to hear the second trump and this could
explain the silence for a half an hour? Could the first
trump be for us to assemble together in the spirit at 2:30
p.m. or a half hour before the Rapture at 3:00 p.m.? I am
not predicting, but these possibilities are really amazing!
Here is a summary of the possible blessings that can
be expected at the ninth hour of the day or 3:00 p.m.:
1. Call people into service.
2. Defeat for the enemy. Claim it for those
44 HENRY WALKER
3. God will start making a way of breakthrough
4. God pours out his resurrection power.
ELEVENTH HOUR OF THE DAY
In Matthew 20:9, people who are hired at the last hour
(eleventh) get as much as the others who start working
earlier. This is truly the time of day when the Lord raises
up those who are considered last and makes them the
first. Be aware of this time. You may feel that God has
forgotten about you, but no!
This is the time of day when God starts replacing
Saul’s with David’s (people after his own heart). He is
replacing Moses’ with Joshua’s, Eli’s with Samuel’s. This
is the time where God is raising up nobodys. This is the
time when God will bring some who are considered the
least to become the greatest! God has a perfect timing
for everyone who is part of his plan.
Remember in Genesis 26, Isaac is digging up the wells
of water that his father, Abraham, had dug originally,
but the Philistines keep stopping them up. However, in
verse 22, Isaac digs a well that the enemy couldn’t tamper
with. The name they give to the well was Rehoboth
(the Lord hath made room for us). Right after that, the
enemy comes to Isaac and wants to sign a covenant with
him. God is pushing your enemies back and making
room for you. It is his timing for you to take someone’s
place. He is making the last to be the first.
At the time that God anointed David, an evil spirit
came on Saul, the king. God had started the process of
David taking his place. Some people get lifted up in the
46 HENRY WALKER
flesh and feel that the whole body of Christ revolves
around them. They are sadly mistaken. God could be
ready to replace them. He may have already started the
process. He always has a ram in the bush. He is starting
to remove the candlestick (authority and purpose) from
When God raises one up, that person has to realize
that only the anointing of God can do it. He has to
realize that the only way he can do the assignment is by
that same anointing. When we read chapter 17, we can
see how David avails himself of this anointing. It looks
like an impossible situation with both armies lining up
against each other and Goliath leading the way for the
enemy. Every Israelite is afraid of him, including Saul,
who is the biggest Israelite. God makes the right choice
in replacing Saul with David.
Those whom God calls, he also justifies. In verses
4–7, God shows how big Goliath is to let us know that
we need to factor in and rely on the anointing of God.
The anointing of God on us can do what we can never
do. In verse 23, the Word records that David hears the
great words Goliath is speaking against David’s God,
and this gets David angry. Saul tries to talk David out
of going against Goliath but to no avail. David knew
that the anointing of God is greater than anything that
could come against him and has a practiced faith in the
anointing of God. He points out to Saul that when a lion
and bear attacked his sheep, the anointing of God came
upon him and he slew them with his own hands. He
knew this same anointing would defeat any adversary.
Whatever God is asking you to do, factor in the
anointing. He wants to raise you up out of nowhere, but
you have to rely on the anointing and not on your own
intelligence and strength. He wants to raise you up and
show others what he can do with a fully surrendered life.
He gets all the glory.
In 1 Samuel 17:37, David tells Saul that the same
God who destroyed the lion and the bear will defeat the
giant. David knew the attack is not against the Israelites
but against God. He separates himself from the attack
and turns the battle over to God. If you are working for
Jesus and people are attacking you, you have to realize
it is a spiritual battle and the forces of evil are trying to
align against God. They can’t defeat God. They want to
fight you. Goliath is looking for a man to fight him (1
God uses David to do some great things. This is
somebody who had been tending sheep just a little while
before. God raises him up out of nowhere and uses him
He wants to do the same with you. Just decrease in
the flesh, so his anointing can be increased out of you.
Follow God’s direction and correction for your faults.
Turn every problem you have in the flesh over to him.
“Through the Spirit you can mortify the deeds of the
flesh” (Romans 8:13). Make your number one prayer
to be conformed to the image of Jesus and watch how
he increases the anointing in your life to have you win
battles for him that nobody else can win. He truly wants
to make somebodys out of nobodys.
You may feel that you are last on his list for promotion,
but he wants to turn the list upside down and make
you the first! He can start doing this at the eleventh hour.
In Exodus 12:29, the Word mentions that God kills all
the firstborn in the land of Egypt in order to persuade
them to let his people go. This midnight hour is a time of
deliverance, especially for God’s people. Just like God’s
people had to be ready to go, so should we be ready to
move when he wants.
In verse 35, the Egyptians give them gold and silver.
This midnight hour is a great time to start believing
for the wealth of your enemies to start coming to you.
Believe for God’s favor to be turned loose on you.
This midnight hour of deliverance (sixth hour of the
night) is also contained in Judges 16:2–3. The Philistines
have Samson locked behind the gates of the city, but
Samson breaks out and picks up the gates and carries
them all the way up Mount Hebron at midnight. The
Philistines can’t hold Samson, and your enemies can’t
control or keep you bound. Receive your release from
whatever or whoever is trying to control you at this midnight
Another truth about the midnight hour is contained
in Ruth 3:8. Ruth lies at the feet of Boaz at midnight.
He chooses her to be his wife, and the next day, claims
her before the whole city as his kinsman. For us, this
means lying at the feet of our kinsman redeemer, Jesus.
We can be blessed at any time of the day, but this is a
special time when our Redeemer wants to let us know
we are special to him.
50 HENRY WALKER
Another aspect of the midnight hour is contained in
Psalm 119:62. The psalmist says that at midnight he will
“rise to give thanks unto God for his righteous judgments.”
This is a great time for God to start judging
on your behalf. Believe that whoever is trying to come
against you unjustly will be judged by God. He will rule
on your behalf and settle the issue. It doesn’t matter if a
whole company is coming against you. If you are doing
the righteous thing he will defend and vindicate you.
In Matthew 25, there is a familiar parable about the
ten virgins. Five are ready and five aren’t. At midnight,
the bridegroom comes. Look for the bridegroom ( Jesus)
to come on the scene at this time to give you a new beginning.
Look for promotion to start. Just be ready. Watch
and expect him to come on the scene of your difficulties
and bring about your new beginning. Please make sure
that your number one prayer is to conform to the image
of Jesus and watch how he starts to promote at this hour.
In Luke 11, there is another great truth about this hour.
Jesus tells a parable about a man knocking on a friend’s
door at midnight, looking for bread. He said in verse 9,
“Ask and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock
and it shall be opened unto you.” God is telling us to knock
on the door of his heart at this time to receive, and keep
knocking or believing, until he grants your request. He is in
such a time of giving at this midnight hour!
The truth about God’s deliverance anointing at this
hour is also confirmed in Acts chapter 16; Paul and
Silas are thrown into the deepest, most inner part of the
prison. There seems to be no hope, but an earthquake
comes and God sets them free (verse 26) at midnight.
Paul also goes to the jailer’s house (at midnight), and
the whole family gets saved (verses 31–34). Take advantage
of this time.
The anointing on this hour for salvation is also contained
in Acts 20:8–11. While Paul is preaching (midnight),
a little boy falls and dies. God raises this boy
from the dead through Paul. God wants to raise up the
spiritually dead at this time and save their souls. The
Word says in Ephesians 2:1 that he quickened us who
were dead in trespasses and sins. He wants to quicken
others at this time.
Another truth about this time is contained in Acts
27:27; Paul and the others in the ship in the midst of the
storm are encouraged when they learn that they are getting
closer to land (at midnight), closer to their deliverance. At
this midnight hour God wants to speak to your spirit and
confirm how close you are to breakthrough. Praise him!
Here is a summary of the possible blessings that can
be expected at the midnight hour:
2. God can show favor in your life by judging
on your behalf.
3. Look for the bridegroom ( Jesus) to come
on the scene to give you a new beginning.
4. Start knocking on the door of his heart in
earnest and it will be given. Keep knocking.
He is always a God of giving, especially
at this hour.
5. Salvation. Expect God to move whole
families to be saved. Just believe!
6. God wants to confirm to you how close
you are to breakthrough.
Be in his presence at this time and see how he reveals
these promises in your life at the midnight hour.
FIRST, SECOND, THIRD, AND
FOURT H WATC H OF THE NIGHT
In Acts 23, the Word talks about a plot by about forty
men to kill the Apostle Paul. Paul’s nephew overhears
them and warns Claudius Lysias, the chief captain, who
has Paul in prison (verses 12–35). Claudius sends Paul
to Felix for safety with a guard of two hundred soldiers,
seventy horsemen and two hundred spearmen. This happens
at the third hour of the night, or 9:00 p.m. or during
the first watch of the night. The first watch of the night
is from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. As a result of this incident,
God is letting us know that there is a great anointing
at this time to deliver his people from a serious plot of
the enemy and to use somebody to help prevent Satan’s
success. Look for God to provide a way of escape from
a situation you may be in at this time and please take
advantage of the person or persons God uses to help you.
In Luke 12:36, Jesus talks about servants watching
for their lord or master to come. He says that the people
who watch for their master’s coming sit down to eat with
him and he will serve them (verse 37). Jesus says in verse
38 that if the master comes in the second or third watch
and finds them alert and looking for his coming, then
they are blessed.
This is a great promise to you and me. The second
watch of the night is from 9:00 p.m. to midnight. The
third watch of the night is midnight to 3:00 a.m. At
these times especially, we need to expect Jesus, our Lord
54 HENRY WALKER
and Master, to communicate to us in a special way (sit
down to eat) and minister to our greatest need (serve us).
He is not a God who is way out in the universe someplace,
but rather, he is inside of us and moving on our
situation with his power. At these times, expect him to
move for you. If you are lying in bed at these times, meditate
on who he is and how he sanctified these watches
to communicate with us in a special way and minister to
our greatest needs. Expect to feel the closeness of God
especially in these time periods. He may wake you up just
to love on you or give you special revelations. He may
communicate to you through dreams. He may wake you
up to intercede for someone, or even for whole nations.
The third watch of the night that starts at 12:00 A.M.
and runs till 3:00 A.M. is a time where deep prayer may
be needed. During this time, witches and warlocks want
to move more than at any other time. God may bring
you into intense prayer at this time, especially for others.
These are great revelationary and intercessory times.
The fourth watch of the night occurs between 3:00
a.m. and 6:00 a.m. In Matthew 14:24, there is an account
of the apostles in a ship tossing to and fro by a storm.
In the fourth watch of the night, Jesus walks on the sea
(verse 25). As soon as he got into the ship, the wind
ceases and they make it to the other side. This is a special
time for Jesus to come during the darkest hour of your
trial and walk on the very thing that is so big against
you. Take solace in the fact that everything and everyone
was created by Jesus and for Jesus. This includes Satan
and all thrones, principalities, powers, and dominions
(Colossians 1:16–18). Jesus is truly on top of your situation.
During this time he wants to demonstrate this fact
and show his awesome power in your situation.
At these times, he also wants to take you to the other
side. He wants to show you how close you are to your
destiny and how he is pouring out his power to make
room for you in his kingdom plan. Turn over every concern
and obstacle that you have to him and let him make
a way for you. It doesn’t matter who or what is coming
against you to try to thwart your destiny. Whether it is
a person or an organization that is trying to hinder or
stop you, they have to get out of the Lord’s way or be
forced out of his way. Also, the Lord uses these intimate
evening watches to prepare us for the daily hourly blessings,
as well as to intercede for others. In addition, He
wants to bring instruction, encouragement, and possibly
correction to us during these watches that start at 6:00
P.M. and end at 6:00 A.M.
Besides God’s hourly blessings which we have just discussed,
blessings are contained in certain significant days
in particular months of the year as well as certain months
as a whole. Please remember that God can bless at any
time, but he has anointed and set aside certain months
to perform special and unique blessings. In the next succeeding
chapters we will study each month and learn the
blessings associated with the months as a whole and the
particular days within these months. Again, on my website,
(www.henrywalker.org) I have prepared the current
and future dates on both the Hebrew calendar and the
Gregorian calendar when the monthly periods begin and
end. Just click on Biblical Calendar on my website. On the
same location, I also have the future dates for the feasts
days on both calendars. As you look at the Hebrew calendar
just remember that the day (according to the Word)
starts at evening the previous day, and ends on evening the
same day. Also, when talking of a blessing from the word
that occurs in the seventh month, for example, I am not
talking about the month of July on the Gregorian calendar
but the month Tishrei which occurs between September
and October. The secret to know when an exact blessing
period occurs, please refer from the Hebrew calendar back
to our calendar or the Gregorian calendar.
The months of the year are as follows:
First Month Nisan Mar-Apr.
Second Month Iyar Apr-May
58 HENRY WALKER
Third Month Sivan May-June
Fourth Month Tammuz June-July
Fifth Month Av July-Aug.
Sixth Month Elul Aug-Sept.
Seventh Month Tishrei Sept.-Oct.
Eighth Month Cheshvan Oct.-Nov.
Ninth Month Kislev Nov.-Dec.
Tenth Month Tevet Dec.- Jan.
Eleventh Month Shevat Jan.- Feb.
Twelfth Month Adar Feb.-Mar.
In Joel 2:23, God mentions through the prophet Joel
that he wants to pour out the former and latter rain in
the first month. The first month of the year starts on
Nisan, which is our equivalent of March-April.
God said in this verse that up to that point he had
poured out the rain moderately, but it is about to change.
Are you ready for change? He is ready to get extravagant
with his blessings. He says in verse 24 that “the floors
shall be full of wheat and the vats shall overflow with
wine and oil.” He is ready, if you are, for you to be on
the receiving end of his extravagant blessings. For some
of you, it has been such a drought. There is an overflow
anointing on this first month. Receive it!
Allow God to mortify the deeds of your flesh daily
and make your number one prayer that God would conform
you to the image of Jesus. When you have done
this, you are in position to receive this overflow blessing
anointing in this month. Praise him!
He also says in verse 25 that he would restore years
into your life (i.e. take away the effect of events that happened
years ago). He can restore in such a marvelous
way that the event may seem to have not happened at
all. He can also start in this month to restore monies and
other assets that were taken from you.
He also says in verse 26 that you will not be ashamed.
You have believed for a long time for God to bring some
60 HENRY WALKER
blessings into your life that he has promised you. He is
saying that you will not be ashamed. During this month,
he can start to bring some of these promises to pass. Just
believe. God also says that he would “pour out his Spirit
on all flesh” in verse 28. Believe that he will start pouring
out his Spirit on family members and others you are
In Numbers 20:1–11, Moses writes how the children
of Israel murmurs and complains when they had
no water and Moses is being tested and hits the rock,
instead of speaking to the rock, as he was commanded
by God. This happened during the first month (verse 1).
This first month can also be a time of testing and you
need to be on guard. As a result of this, Moses is not
allowed to enter into the Promised Land (verse 23–24).
All he could do was see it from a distance. Please don’t
give up on God merely because circumstances are not
lining up as quickly as you would like. Don’t murmur
and complain. You don’t want to lose blessings, do you?
Just as the first month of the year can be a time of great
blessing, it can also be a time of great testing before the
blessing is manifested.
Just like Moses was separated from going into the
Promise Land, this first month is also a time where God
will separate people from their purposes or destinies and
give them to someone else. Look at David taking Saul’s
place, Joshua taking Moses’ place and Samuel taking
In Numbers 21:1–35, the Canaanites attack Israel.
The first month is also a time of war. In verse 35, Moses
records that Israel possesses the land of the enemy. This
is a time for you get spoils from the sinners (“The wealth
of the sinner is laid up for the just.” [Proverbs 13:22]).
Your enemies may initiate the attack, but God is allowNOON
ing the attack in order to give you their possessions. It
is all in God’s plans. If you see the enemy attack in this
month, you have to realize that the attack was all set up
by God to bless you, not to harm you.
In Isaiah 35, God is preparing his people for an
attack of the enemy by saying in verses 1 and 2 that they
will blossom abundantly and rejoice. Sure enough, the
enemy attacks, and they are defeated by God (37:36). As
you can see, this month is a time of you getting spoils
from the enemy, no matter what it looks like when you
are initially attacked. Remember, spoils are something
people don’t want you to have, but God says he will
give it to you anyway. Remember, especially in this first
month, that “everything and everybody was created by
God and for him” (Colossians 1:16). He is the boss.
The Israelites crossed the Jordan River in the first
month (1 Chronicles 12:15). The first month is a time
for many to cross over into purpose, no matter how deep
your Jordan River seems. God will make a way where
there seems to be no way, when your back may be up
against a wall.
The first month is also a time for a change in leadership.
In 2 Chronicles 35:21, Josiah, a king of Israel, is
told by God not to go against the king of Egypt. He did
not listen and is killed in battle (verses 22–24). There is a
replacement anointing on this month, especially around
Passover because this is the time this event happens
(verses 1–19). “Promotion comes from God; he puts
down one and sets up another” (Psalm 75:6–7). He may
be preparing you to take someone’s place.
In Ezra 7:9, the Word says that Ezra begins to travel
to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple on the first day of the
first month. On this particular day of the month, God
could put an assignment on you that could change many
62 HENRY WALKER
people’s lives and bring glory to God. Please be ready
and attentive to hear the voice of the Lord, especially
at this time. The favor of God on Ezra was so strong
that Artaxerxes, the king of Persia, gives Ezra a letter
directing people to take care of his every need as he does
his assignment (verse 11). Do you realize that the same
favor of God is on you at this time? So step out in faith,
with God’s backing.
In Ezekiel 29:17–19, in the first month, God mentions
that Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, did not
receive wages in his battle against Tyrus. God didn’t forget
about this and promises him the land of Egypt as a
spoil for him and to supply the lost wages for his army.
God is such a kind and merciful God! He will never
forget your labor for his name. Just get ready to begin
to receive at this time. What you might have considered
lost in the past is not lost to God. He is truly a God
of restitution and recovery (Acts 3:21), especially at this
first day of the first month.
On the seventh day of the first month God broke
the power of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, as recorded in
Ezekiel 30:20–24. He strengthens the power of the king
of Babylon against him and puts his sword into his hand.
God says that “vengeance is his” (Hebrews 10:30). So
this is also a great day for God to take away the power of
your enemies, strengthen you, and put the sword of the
Word into your hands, in order to complete the victory.
It doesn’t matter to God how long your enemies seem to
have been winning. On this day, expect God to move on
your behalf and break their power. God will divide their
tongues and bring confusion into their midst. They will
turn on each other (2 Chronicles 20:23). God will get
all the glory!
In Ezra 8:31, Ezra and others take the gold and silver
meant for the temple of God through some enemy territory.
God’s protection is great upon them. This occurs
on the twelfth day of the first month. Expect God to
start to bring the finances for your ministry on this day,
no matter how much the enemy doesn’t want them to
arrive. God will make sure you get what you need as you
do his will.
The Feast of Passover occurs on the fourteenth day of
Nisan, which is the first month. It is fourteen days after
the first of the year. Passover is an appointed time to
remember Jesus’ death and to remember that his sacrificial
death purchased our deliverance from sin and Satan.
Jesus rose from the dead three days later on Nisan 17.
This is a time to take advantage of God’s anointing on
this time of the month and die to our fleshly desires and
Here are some important additional facts about the
Feast of Passover: It is my belief after studying the word
that Jesus was born on Passover, which as I mentioned,
occurs in the first month. In the book of Luke 2:41, the
word says that Jesus’ parents went to Jerusalem every
year at Passover. In v. 42, the word says that when Jesus
became (in the Greek) twelve years old they went to
Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. (Passover was
followed by Unleavened Bread which was a seven day
feast in which the first and last days were holy convocations
where they were obligated to be in the temple
(Lev. 23:6-8). The word also says in Luke that Mary
and Joseph could not find Jesus and went a day’s journey
back to their relatives to try to find him (Luke 2:4, 44).
So, you can see that he became twelve on Passover and
they traveled one day to be in the temple on the first day
of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
Also, a male child was circumcised on the eight
64 HENRY WALKER
day after his birth (Lev. 12:3). When Jesus was born on
Passover, he was circumcised on the eight day (Passover
plus seven days of Unleavened Bread) which was the last
day of Unleavened Bread. So, Jesus fulfilled Passover
by being born and dying on Passover. He fulfilled
Unleavened Bread by leading a sinless life and being
circumcised on the last day of Unleavened Bread. As I
mentioned earlier, Jesus rose from the dead on Nisan 17,
also fulfilling Unleavened Bread which occurs during
Some try to say that Jesus was born on the first
day of the Feast of Tabernacles, based on Zacharias, the
father of John the Baptist. They try to figure the date
of the birth of Jesus from the course in the temple that
Zacharias had to serve (Luke 1:5-10). However, they
don’t realize that he served two courses, one six months
later in the year. Also, they had to serve on three holidays;
Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles. So, it difficult
to know when Zacharias was serving in the Temple and
as a result when John the Baptist was conceived.
Also, additional further proof that Jesus was born
on Passover is in Micah 4:8 where the word says that the
kingdom shall come to the tower of the flock (Migdal
Edar). Migdal Edar is located in Bethlehem Ephratah.
The Jewish Targum Yonathan cited by Rabbi Munk
paraphrases Gen. 35:21 and Micah 4:8, “He spread
his tent beyond Migdal Endar, the place where King
Messiah will reveal Himself at the end of days.” This was
fulfilled when the angels announced to the shepherds
in Bethlehem that the Messiah was born. The tower of
the flock was a two-story tower where shepherds would
watch over the flock from the second story and where
the newborn lambs were birthed in the lower portion in
a cave. These were special hand-picked shepherds that
were watching over lambs that were getting ready to be
sacrificed on Passover. These lambs were special also and
were wrapped with swaddling clothes to be protected
from hurt and blemish. These were the same type of
clothes used to wrap Jesus.
When they were first born they were kept in a
manger in the cave below. It was in this same cave that
Jesus was born. When the angels announced to the
shepherds that they would find the babe wrapped in
swaddling clothes and lying in a manger, they had no
need for the angels to tell them the place. They knew
the cave. It was right below them. These special lambs
were born around and during Passover in order to be
ready to be sacrificed on Passover. So, the announcement
by the angels to the shepherds was at Passover as they
were watching their special flock for Passover sacrifice.
The fact that Jesus was born on Passover and His birth
announced at the tower of the flock signifies that He is
the Passover Lamb and there is no more need for sacrificial
lambs. There is also no more need for the watch
tower of the flock! Also, the original Passover was a great
time of deliverance. What better day for the Deliverer to
be born? In addition, a tax was taken during the time of
Jesus’ birth. What great a time to take the tax when so
many were gathered together for Passover?
Here are some additional very important facts that
the Holy Ghost wants us to glean out of Passover:
1.) His Timing. – As I mentioned earlier, I
mentioned that Jesus fulfilled Passover
being born and dying on this feast. Also, I
mentioned that Jesus fulfilled the Feast of
Unleavened Bread by being circumcised
on the eighth day of the Feast. God’s tim66
ing is impeccable!
2.) God’s complete control- The events that
happened on the Passover that Jesus died
also shows God’s complete control. In
John 11:48-52 Caiaphas the high priest
recognized that Jesus had to die for the
sins of the whole world. God had put
this on his heart. The loudest voices to
have Jesus crucified when Pilate asked
the people what they would have him do
with Jesus, came from the high priest and
his people. Even when they said that His
blood would be upon them and their children,
this was not a curse but a blessing as
they knew who Jesus was (Matt. 27:25).
When Jesus was in front of Caiaphas, He
quoted from Psalm 110 when He said
that hereafter ye shall see the Son of Man
sitting on the right hand of power (Mt.
26:64). In Psalm 110:1, God says to Jesus
–sit at my right hand until I make your
enemies your footstool. This was a preview
of Jesus standing before Caiaphas. In
v. 4, Jesus is identified as the priest after
the order of Melchizedek. Jesus was taking
Caiaphas’ position as high priest for
Passover. In verse 5, the word says that
Jesus at Caiaphas’ right hand, could strike
through his heart if he didn’t relinquish
his priesthood. The Romans had set up
Caiaphas, not God. Caiaphas ripped his
garment, thereby giving up his priesthood
reluctantly to Jesus (Mt. 26:65). So,
on Passover, the next day, Jesus was the
high priest at 9:00 A.M. when Pilate pronounced
that the lamb (Him) was clean,
according to law (Luke 23:14,15) and at
3:00 P.M. officiating over His own death,
when the Passover lamb was sacrificed.
In addition, the word says in Zechariah 11:12, that
the LORD said that He was going to be sold for thirty
pieces of silver. This was a prophecy about the LORD
speaking through Judas when the LORD said “give me
my price…”Also, in verse 13 there is a prophecy that
the LORD would say unto the chief priest to use the
thirty pieces of silver for the Potters field to bury the
poor. It is evident in this verse that this is the meaning
as “the LORD said unto me, cast it into the potters
field.” It seems that this is the chief priest talking.
Wow! The LORD is showing His complete control over
Judas and the chief priest! These prophecies were many
years before they happened (Matt. 26:14-16, 27:3-10).
Even in Matt. 27:10, in fulfilling this prophecy, the chief
priest said that he gave the money for the Potters field
“as the LORD appointed me.”
Also, in Matt. 26:2 Jesus tells His apostles that He
would be betrayed and crucified. The next verse says
“then the chief priests, and the scribes and the elders
of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who
was called Caiaphas, and consulted that they might take
Jesus by subtilty, and kill Him.” Notice only when Jesus
spoke out that He would be crucified “then” the authorities
conspired to kill Him. They only had the authority
to do this when Jesus gave it to them by His words!
The Father really controls everything and everybody
(Col. 1:16,17); therefore we can say that no weapon
formed against us will ever prosper! This fact will help
68 HENRY WALKER
us in ministering to people that are under the control of
Satan. This shows His complete control over everything!
3.) The Blood- Another aspect of this
Passover on which Jesus died is contained
in Acts 20:28, where the word says that
Jesus’ Blood is the Father’s Blood. This fact
makes the Blood so powerful and is the
reason why the devil is so terrified about
the Blood. We need to use the Blood as an
offensive weapon against Satan, not just
defensively. We need to plead the Blood
of Jesus over situations that could be coming
against us, to utterly destroy them, not
just use the Blood to defend us. We can
also use the Blood to restore what Satan
took away from us, whether it be finances,
relationships, etc. Israel always sacrificed
an animal before battle. We need to apply
the Blood over situations and watch them
4.) A time for wealth transfers- Another
aspect of this Passover on which Jesus died
is contained in Isaiah 53:12 where there
is a prophecy about His sacrificial death.
The word says that Jesus gave gifts to us,
dividing the spoils as a result of His victory
over sin, sickness and the grave.
As I mentioned earlier, Jesus was born on Passover
and He is now giving gifts on His birthday! In addition,
as I mentioned earlier, the thirty pieces of silver that was
given by the chief priests to Judas to betray Jesus was
given back to the chief priests, by Judas. They gave the
thirty pieces of silver to the poor as they purchased a
field for the poor to bury their dead and called it “The
Field of Blood.” Jesus arranged this “wealth transfer” to
the poor on the day of His sacrificial death, Passover.
5.) His deliverance – As the children of Israel
were delivered from Egypt by the blood of
a lamb on Passover, we have been delivered
from sin by the Blood of Jesus on the
Passover that He died and this Blood can
set other people free from sin through us.
Even Barabbas being freed on Passover
when Jesus was condemned to death
shows Jesus’ deliverance power. He did
this on the same day when He purchased
our own deliverance!
6.) Passover-a time of spiritual warfare. There
could be a lot of spiritual warfare during
this time, as Satan is really angry what
Yahshua did for us in His death. In Acts.
12 Peter was in prison and was to be killed
the next day. This was the time of Passover
and Unleavened Bread (see verse 3 and 4).
The word “Easter” in verse 4 should have
been translated Passover as it is the Greek
word “Pasch.” In Acts 27 Paul was on a
ship and in the middle of a storm and it
was Nisan 14(27:27) which is Passover.
However, Peter was set free and Paul made
it to Rome so don’t be concerned. Yahshua
rode into Jerusalem before Passover on
a donkey but He also had a colt (Matt.
21:5-7). He was going to be attacked during
Passover and the colt was symbolically
for us- to be attacked because of Him during
this season. It is a compliment to your
spiritual walk if you are attacked because
70 HENRY WALKER
of Him. But remember, no weapon formed
against you will prosper (Is. 54:17). The
next Feast Day during this month is the
Feast of Unleavened Bread, which is a
seven day Feast that starts the day after
Passover. It starts on Nisan 15 and ends on
Nisan 21. The Jews are told to remove all
leaven from their houses during this time
period (Lev. 23:6). Leaven is a type of sin.
This season is a period of time where God
wants to purify us. Jesus fulfilled this feast
by leading a sinless life.
As a reminder, during this monthly time and in every
month, God wants access to change us into the image of
Jesus. There is such a special anointing during this time
that the things and people that you allow him to remove
out of your life may never come back.
Most Christians don’t realize the power in God’s
monthly blessings and carry their sins and circumstances
from one season to another. It is similar to putting the
garbage out to be picked up. There are certain days that
garbage is picked up. It would be foolish to put the garbage
out on days that there is no pickup. But when it
is the right time, all the garbage you leave out will be
picked up. The people picking up the trash will not bring
it back. All the garbage you allow God to pick up during
this time will be removed once and for all. Only you can
allow garbage back into your life. This is such a powerful
blessing during this month. Take advantage of it.
Another thing God wants to remove from our lives,
especially during this time of the first month, is the
Goliath who is dictating your life. David knows he could
destroy all the Philistines if he killed Goliath (1 Samuel
17), since the giant was their leader. Goliath was the one
doing all the threatening. The other Philistines were
hiding behind him.
In Numbers 33:3, the Word mentions that the children
of Israel leave Egypt on the fifteenth day of the
first month. They also leave with a high hand. They get
gold and silver from the Egyptians. Even though God
can deliver at any time, this is a day of great deliverance.
Begin to move out of where you are as God’s deliverance
power moves in your life. The Israelites were in bondage
for many years, but this day God moved on their
behalf and they had to move by faith. When Peter was
in prison, as recorded in Acts 12, he rises up and moves
when the angel tells him to (verse 7).
In this first month, there were some other great
events that happened during the Feast of Unleavened
Bread, the time period of Nisan 15-21:
1.) As I mentioned earlier, Jesus rose on Nisan
17. The word says in Daniel 9:26,27 that
the Messiah would be cut off in the middle
of the week. Jesus died at 3:00 P.M.
on Wednesday and rose 72 hours later on
Saturday, Nisan 17 at 3:00 P.M. His followers
had a tradition of not going near a
dead body on the Sabbath, so they waited
until after the Sabbath on Saturday night.
When they got to the tomb they saw that
He had already risen, while it was yet dark
on Saturday night ( John 20:1). What
some people forget is that they had to get
Jesus into the tomb before the first day of
Unleavened Bread. It was not a weekly
Sabbath but a High Holy Sabbath ( John
19:31). As I mentioned earlier, the first
and last days of Unleavened Bread are
72 HENRY WALKER
holy convocations or Sabbaths when the
Jews have to be in the temple.
2.) As I mentioned earlier, Noah’s ark rested
on Mt. Ararat on Nisan 17. Genesis 8:4
– the word says that the ark rested on the
seventeenth day of the seventh month but
later the Lord changed the order of the
months to have the seventh month (Nisan
or Abib) to be the first-as recorded in
Exodus 12:1-2, 13:3,4). As I mentioned
earlier, the Israelites left Egypt the day
after Passover- Nisan 15, the first day of
Unleavened Bread (Exodus 13:3).
3.) Joshua surrounded Jericho during the Feast
of Unleavened Bread. On the seventh day
(Nisan 21), the last day of Unleavened
Bread, is when the walls of Jericho came
down. ( Joshua 5:10-12-6:3-27).
Also, as I mentioned earlier, during the time of
Passover and Unleavened Bread there is a time of great
warfare on some of God’s people.
In our ministering to others, the Feast of Unleavened
Bread is also a reminder that as we separate from sin
and move in the Gifts of the Spirit, we can do so more
effectively as we allow the Fruit of the Spirit to come
out of us. We can then go into the deep areas of where
people are hurting. The Fruit of the Spirit is all about
the personality of Jesus. The Fruit describes the nature
and character of Jesus. The Fruit of the Spirit is: love,
joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness goodness, faith,
meekness and temperance (Gal. 5:22-23). Let’s discuss
the Fruit in detail (a lot of this information is gotten
from Noah Webster’s Dictionary of 1848):
1.) Love-“Excited by the pleasing qualities of
an object which communicates pleasure in
one’s company, to regard with affection.”
When one is ministering to someone
in the Spirit with one of the gifts of the
Spirit one has to have pleasure in the one
who they are ministering to. They have to
see the person’s pleasing qualities in the
Spirit as they may not be evident in the
natural. The Father can bring this fruit
out of us if we desire and place the person
that we are ministering to in a high regard.
As we allow the Holy Spirit to show us
the person that we are ministering to in
the way that He sees the person, a deep
healing can flow through us in a word of
knowledge, a word of wisdom, etc. When
one is ministering in the Gifts of the Spirit
with a foundation of the fruit of the Spirit,
the person who they are ministering too
seems to be the most important person in
the world at that moment.
2.) Joy-“Emotion excited by the acquisition or
expectation of something good happening
to someone.” This emotion is caused by
the expectation of success or favor coming
into the person’s life as a result of the Holy
Spirit ministering through us. We have to
want to see the person really blessed more
than anything else. This can only happen
when the Holy Spirit moves in us with
3.) Peace-“Sense of quiet or tranquility, freedom
from disturbance or agitation.” It also
means “freedom from fear, internal commotion,
terror, anxiety, in harmony and a
74 HENRY WALKER
calm mind.” To move in the Gifts of the
Spirit, to help someone we have to desire
to bring peace into the situation of the
person that we are praying for. With this
attitude the Holy Spirit can really move
through us. The Holy Spirit can then free
people from the guilt of the past and the
events that are troubling them and robbing
4.) Longsuffering-“Long endurance, forbearance
to punish, clemency and not easily
provoked or looking to strike back at an
offense.” Longsuffering “kicks” in when
patience runs out. It may be difficult without
this fruit of the Spirit to minister to
someone who tests our patience or who
has hurt us terribly. When the fruit of the
Spirit is operating through us the person
only sees Jesus working through us.
5.) Gentleness- “Mild, meek, soft, not rough,
harsh or severe, a gentle nature and peaceable.”
When one is operating in this fruit
it is like Jesus the Prince of Peace is ministering
in all His gentleness. There are so
many harsh things in some people’s daily
life and sometimes they encounter some
harsh people. They need to be ministered
to by Yahshua though us in gentleness.
6.) Goodness-“state of being good, having
physical qualities which constitute value,
excellence, perfection or Christian excellence.”
People need to see this in us as
there is so much wickedness in the world.
When this fruit is present and working
through us, there is no telling what a person
may receive from Elohim.
7.) Faith-“To draw.” Having this supernatural
faith operating through us can help us to
draw on the supernatural power of Elohim
to bring about a miracle or a blessing in
8.) Meekness-Meekness is not weakness.
Meekness is “softness of temper, mildness,
gentleness, not striking back after
an injury or provocation.” It also means
submission to Yahweh’s will without murmuring
or complaining. It is the opposite
of pride. People being ministered to will
really respond when one is moving in this
fruit of the Spirit.
9.) Temperance-“Habitual, continuing moderation
in regard to natural appetites.” It is
so important to demonstrate this fruit to
show that we are controlled by the Holy
Spirit and not our fleshly appetites.
On the sixteenth day of the first month the Feast
of Firstfruits occurs. It is a fifty-day Feast that ends
on the sixth day of Sivan, or Pentecost. As Pentecost
approaches, God has chosen this time to do some spring
cleaning. This starts to happen during the time of
Firstfruits. After Jesus rose from the dead, he ascended
to his Father to present his blood on the mercy seat of
heaven to cleanse it. He did this during Firstfruits, to
show that he is the Firstfruit from the dead.
On this feast previously, the High Priest would present
the first grain from the harvest to God as an offering.
Jesus fulfilled this feast after he rose from the dead.
During this time, God is trying to prepare us for his
mighty move that will start to take place on Pentecost.
Allow him to point out those areas of your life that need
76 HENRY WALKER
to change. He is trying to get his people ready for all that
he is starting on Pentecost.
During this time, your number one prayer should be
for the Father to conform you into the image of Jesus.
As you pray this from the heart, he will point out those
areas of your life that need to change. Just because we
are saved, it doesn’t mean that we have arrived. God put
us on the road to sanctification, when we became born
again, but holiness is a process that must be walked out.
Even though we receive a righteous standing when born
again, the road to sanctification is a process that conforms
us to the image of Jesus. During our walk on this
road, God wants complete access to change us into his
image. As God points things out in our life, we can’t
argue with him and deny, but need to accept the correction
and allow him to change us. The Word says in
Romans 8:13, that only the Spirit of God can mortify
the deeds of the flesh!
We are helpless to change ourselves and stop sinning.
However, we need to make quality decisions not to sin
and ask for his strength. How many blessings God can
bestow on us with this attitude! This is why we have
missed blessings. God was trying to prepare us for blessings
during his cleaning process, but we went back to
our old ways and missed him.
In Romans, Paul says “we should not serve sin,” that
we are dead to sin (6:6, 11). He also says in v. 12 not to
let sin reign in our mortal bodies, that we should obey it
in the lust thereof. He also says in verse 13 “not to yield
our members (bodies) as instruments of unrighteousness
unto sin, but yield our members as instruments of righteousness
unto God.” Sin has no power over us unless we
yield to it. Satan can’t make us sin; he only tempts our
flesh. This is why we need to know that the battle is over
our thought life.
In 2 Corinthians 10:5, Paul instructs us to cast down
all evil imaginations and bring every thought captive
to Jesus. This process is like a tennis game. When the
devil gives you a thought, hit it back to Jesus. Please
don’t dwell and meditate on the thought. Most murderers
don’t become killers overnight. They meditate on the
thought that the enemy gives over a period of time, act
it out in their minds, and then perform the terrible act.
The Word even tells us what to think on in Philippians
4:8: things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, good
report, virtue, and praise. We have to realize that there
is a battle over our minds to try to control our future
destiny away from the purpose God intends.
We have a responsibility in our walk to make a quality
decision not to sin, to repent quickly if we commit a sin,
and to walk circumspectively, avoiding pitfalls and plans
of the enemy. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 9:26, 27 to bring
our bodies under subjection, lest we become castaways.
Temptation is strong, but Paul also says in 10:13 that God
always prepares a way of escape. Praise him!
During this spring cleaning, God wants us to clean
ourselves with his Word. He wants us to speak these
scriptures into our lives. Before you confess scriptures
over yourself, say out loud that “the scriptures that I am
claiming are for me and my family and I am using the
terms we or us to apply these scriptures to my family
and me.” In reality, you are cleaning your whole family
with the Word. For example, in Romans 6:14, you can
say that sin does not have dominion over us. The devil
knows exactly whom you are taking about because you
said in the very beginning whom the scriptures apply to.
78 HENRY WALKER
This is a powerful weapon that can clean you up on a
Please take note of this spring cleaning process and
allow God to change you into the image of his Son. He
wants to do this cleaning not only at this time of year,
but anytime that he prompts you! When he has access
to change you, there is no telling what he can do to bless
you, especially during a season such as Pentecost. As you
see all the blessings, contained in this feast, you will be
glad that you went through the Spring Cleaning.
Another aspect of the Feast of Firstfruits which starts
during the first month is that Elohim wants to remind us
that He goes ahead of us (first) and gives us our breakthrough.
He is the Firstfruit from the dead. With this
knowledge that He is the God of the Breakthrough, we
can minister in the Gifts of the Spirit so much more
effectively and believe strongly that God can give them
the breakthrough that they need so desperately.
Yes! our God is the truly the God of our breakthrough.
In Micah Chapter 2:13, the word says that “the
breaker is come up before them: they have broken up
and have passed through the gate and are gone out by
it: and their king shall pass before them and the LORD
on the head of them.” You see God goes ahead of you in
every situation. He is your breaker!
As God leads people to you to be ministered to,
remember from this study of the Feast of Firstfruits
that He wants to go ahead of them and give them a
Breakthrough that could culminate on the Feast of
As I mentioned earlier, on the seventeenth day of
the first month is when Jesus rose from the dead. That
same resurrection power that raised him from the dead is
available to you to raise you up out of any situation that
has you buried. The greatest event in history occurred
in this first month on this day. Surely his resurrection
power is available at other times, but it is always available
on this day. Believe when that day comes around for
that same resurrection power to raise you up from any
Also, on the seventeenth day of the first month, or
Nisan 17, the Jews, as recorded in the book of Esther,
were delivered from wicked Haman on Nisan 17. In
Esther 3:12, the decree to kill all the Jews is signed on
the thirteenth day of the first month, or Nisan 13. On the
same day as recorded in chapter 4, Mordecai approaches
Esther about the plan that wicked Haman tricked the
King into signing. She tells him to tell the people to fast
for her for three days and that she would go in to see the
King unannounced (on Nisan 16). The King receives her
and wants to give her anything that she wants (Oh! the
favor of God!). She asks (verse 4) that Haman would be
invited to a banquet she was giving on that day (Nisan
16). At the banquet she asks the king that Haman be
invited to another banquet that she would give the next
day (Nisan 17). On this day, at this banquet, it was
revealed to the King that Haman was behind the plan to
kill all of Esther’s people. The King hanged Haman on
the same gallows that Haman prepared for Mordecai on
that very day (Nisan 17). So Nisan 17 is a great day for
God to demonstrate his deliverance power in your life.
In Daniel 10:4, the angel Gabriel appears to Daniel
and shows him things that were going to happen in the
last days. This happened on the twenty-fourth day of
the first month. This is a great day of visitation by God
to speak a prophetic word that could affect the whole
world. In verse 2, Daniel mentions that he started to fast
for twenty-one days. In verse 13, Gabriel mentions that
80 HENRY WALKER
the Prince of Persia withstood him twenty-one days. It
would seem that Daniel started his fast on the third day
of the first month. This fast helps to bring an angelic
visitation twenty-one days later, when Gabriel appears.
As a result, the third day of the first month is a great day
to start a Daniel fast (verse 3) that could bring about an
angelic visitation or a far reaching word from the Lord,
concerning the last days.
Let’s summarize the importance of the first month
as a whole:
1. Extravagant blessings.
3. Fulfillment of long-awaited promises.
4. New strategies.
5. Time of testing, be on guard.
6. Transfer of assignments to others.
7. Time of war and to receive spoils.
8. Cross-over into purpose.
9. Change in leadership, replacement anointing.
10. God raises up promises that seem to be
dead, and he can bring one to new spiritual
11. God takes away the power of your enemies,
destroys their plans, brings judgment
on them, and brings a great deliverance.
A summary of the importance of specific days in the
1. First day- assignments given to change
many lives, time to step out, and there is
also a recovery and restoration anointing
on this day.
2. Seventh day- God taking away the power
of your enemies.
3. Fourteenth day- Feast of Passover- The
birth and death of Jesus occurred on this
day! A special time to die to your fleshly
desires and weaknesses. Destroy those circumstances
in your life that are interfering
with receiving God’s blessings. Passover
anointing to deliver whole families.
4. Fifteenth day to the twenty-first day- Feast
of the Unleavened Bread. Unleavened
Bread anointing to remove things from
your life that are contrary to God’s
Word (your Goliaths and other strongholds,
etc) once and for all.
5. Fifteenth day- Great deliverance anointing
and an anointing to receive spoils from
6. Sixteenth day- Feast of Firstfruits - Feast
of Firstfruits anointing to do a “spring
cleaning” in our lives, to enable us by the
power of the Holy Spirit to conform to
the image of Jesus.
7. Seventeenth day- Christ’s resurrection -
God can raise up promises that seem to be
dead and he can bring one to new spiritual
levels, all with his Resurrection power.
8. Seventeenth day- God can bring great
deliverance from the plans of your enemies
and bring them into judgment.
82 HENRY WALKER
9. Twenty-fourth- great day of visitation and
revelation, especially new truths of the
During this month, you may feel all alone with
nobody who can help you but God. This is the way he
wants you to feel. He is preparing you for something
powerful during the year. The weird feeling of being
alone is necessary for God to bring you to a new level
of promotion and blessing. The number one, as used in
the Word, means that you are the one going through
the trial. Other people may be affected indirectly, but
you are the one whom God has called to go through a
particular trial in order to receive the blessing he has for
you. During this first month, don’t look for a lot of help
from people because God is trying to establish a closer
relationship with you.
The numbering of chapters and verses in the Word
bear witness to the truth that God has shown me about
his numbering system. For example, in Mark 1, the
Word tells of John being the voice crying in the wilderness
and the one whom God uses to preach the baptism
in the wilderness. God is showing in Mark 1 that he calls
us alone and uses us as individuals. In this same chapter,
the Word shows how Jesus is used by his Father to call
people to follow him, to cast out devils, etc. I think it is
amazing that the Bible talks about how God deals with
us as one, uses us as one, and shows what he can do with
In Luke 1, the Word follows the calling of Zacharias
and his doubt and eventual belief. It also talks of
Elizabeth conceiving and encouraging Mary, the mother
of Jesus. It tells of Mary, the one person chosen by God
to carry his Son, after the Holy Spirit overshadows her
(verse 35). The chapter shows how God calls people
alone to go through a trial or on an assignment and the
In John 1, the Word talks again about one called John
the Baptist being called, being used by God and finding
Jesus the Messiah. It talks about Jesus calling individuals—
Nathaniel and Phillip. Do you see the numbering
of Chapter 1 with the calling of us as one, called for our
individual trials, called for our individual ministries and
blessings? Praise him!
In Jeremiah 1, the Word talks of Jeremiah being
called before the foundation of the world (verse 5). In
verse 8, the Word shows that he believes that he was
not worthy and how God encourages him. In verse 10,
God tells him his purpose: “to root out, to pull down, to
destroy, to build … ” Again, it’s the calling of one person
for his work. This should encourage us to know that
God calls and treats us as individuals.
In Proverbs 1, God introduces Solomon—one man—
to write proverbs in order to know wisdom and instruction.
He is writing to his son and to us. Again, one man
called for a purpose. Be encouraged that God has called
you as one man, woman, boy, or girl for his purpose and
anoints you to do so and to go through whatever trial is
necessary to get your blessing.
In Revelation 1, God introduces John, his servant,
and how he sends and signifies the Revelation of Jesus
Christ. This is the beginning of a great revelation to
John for us. What a blessing. What an honor for John.
It’s the only book in the Word where Jesus is called “The
Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End”
(verse 8). Look how God used one person to reveal so
much and how God wants to use you as an individual
and give great revelations to you also.
84 HENRY WALKER
Another example is in Acts 1:26; Matthias is called
by God to replace Judas. This is an individual calling of
In Genesis 1 verse 26, he relates how he creates an
individual (Adam) in his image for a purpose. This is
important for us to know, that Satan can’t touch us successfully
on a mission from God because we have been
individually hand-picked by God.
In summary, be encouraged during this first month,
that you are not alone. God is with you. He is preparing
you during this first month in a very personal way for
him to use you so powerfully during the rest of the year.
During this month, God is really trying to show you that
all you need is him.
The events of the first month show God’s precise
timing. Let the same spirit that raised Jesus from the
dead quicken you to a new level during this first month.
We now want to explore the great truths in the Word
concerning the second month; In Numbers 1:1–3, God
speaks to Moses to gather all the men who could go to
war. This is an excellent time to take an inventory of the
people in your ministry to see if they have strength for
spiritual war. This is a time where God will speak to you
about the strengths and weaknesses of the people around
you. He’ll let you know whom you can trust to line up
behind you in battle against Satan. It is so important
to listen to the Holy Spirit about whom you can trust,
especially during this month. In any battle fought in the
World Wars, it was critical who fought next to you. You
were only as strong as your “buddy” next to you. It is
obvious that David recognized this great fact by the men
he assembled around him, as recorded in 2 Sam. 23:8–
39. Some even risk their lives to get him a drink of water
in Jerusalem (verse 16).
Also during this month, as recorded in Numbers
2, God tells Moses to position the people by families
around the tabernacle. It is also so important, especially
at this time, to position more prayer covering around
you and your ministry. Try to get volunteers to take a
certain time during the day to pray, and try to organize
a twenty-four-hour prayer clock around you and your
86 HENRY WALKER
ministry. You may be only as strong as the prayer around
In Numbers 10:11, the Word says the cloud is taken
up off the tabernacle and the children of Israel have to
move to another location. This happens on the twentieth
day of the second month. In this particular month on
this particular day, God wants to lead some of his people
to another location, either physically or spiritually or
both. Be alert and take advantage of his prompting and
leading. It could be a great time to get that new beginning
in a new location. In verse 29, Moses confirms this
when he mentions that they are going to the place God
had promised. God could fulfill many promises about
new locations and new spiritual levels at this time, so be
aware that he could be leading you to them.
In verse 35, Moses asks the Lord to rise up and let
his enemies be scattered and let them flee before him.
This twentieth day of the second month is a great time
for God to begin to scatter your enemies, who are really
his enemies. Believe that he is putting confusion into
the plans of your enemies and that they will fight each
other, just like he did with Jonathan in 1 Sam. 14:20
and Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20:23. Because of their
bravery, God wins the battle for both Jonathan and
Jehoshaphat. They do little and God did the rest. They
just have to be obedient and go toward the enemy without
retreating. This twentieth day of the second month
is such a great time to take God at his Word and face
your enemy, with victory assured.
In 2 Chronicles 3:2, Solomon starts to build the
temple on the second day of the second month. This is
a great time to start building what God has promised.
Take advantage of God’s timing and anointing on particular
days and months of the year. Do you realize that
years later, Ezra starts rebuilding the temple in the same
month that Solomon started building the temple originally
(Ezra 3:8)? This is truly amazing! God has everything
timed out. God could have you start new foundation
courses at this time to build up people’s lives. This
month is also a time when adversaries could begin to
attack the plan God gave you for building. In Ezra 4:1,
the adversaries to God’s people get all riled up and made
threats to attempt to stop the work. Don’t be alarmed.
“Greater is God that is in you than he that is in the
world” (1 John 4:4). “No weapon of the enemy formed
against you will prosper” (Isaiah 54:17).
Let’s summarize the importance of the second month
as a whole:
1. Great time to go to spiritual battle and
take an inventory of who around you is
capable of fighting alongside you.
2. Time to position more prayer support
3. Great time to receive new revelations from
God which could be entrances to new
A summary of the importance of specific days during
1. Second day- Great time to start building
the structure God enabled you to build.
2. Twentieth day- Great time for God to
scatter your enemies, who are really his
enemies. Great time to move to new locations
(physically or spiritually) if God
During this second month, God will reveal more
88 HENRY WALKER
about the meaning of the number two in the Word.
When God calls someone, he always has somebody
else ready if one says no. He always has a ram in the
bush. In the Old Testament, two goats were used in a
sacrifice, one was killed, and the other was sent out into
the wilderness. The number two represents you and me
responding to an invitation from God to do something.
We can either say yes or no. Again, if you say no, he
always has someone else who will say yes.
In Matthew 24:40, the Word says there will be “two
in the field, and one will be taken and one left.” In Mark
11:4, the Word mentions that there was a colt tied where
two ways met. One can go either of two ways—obey
God or not. This truth about the number two is brought
out in the story of the prodigal son, who leaves his
father while the other son stays to do his father’s will. In
Genesis 2:15, man (Adam) is chosen to do a work, and
in verse 18, a helpmate (Eve) is created.
In Proverbs 2:2, God is showing the importance of
doing what God said by understanding the fear of the
Lord. In verse 16, God talks about not letting a stranger
keep you from doing what God wants, or he will have
to use and bless someone else who will do what he says.
In Psalm 2:11, the Psalmist says to serve the Lord with
fear and rejoice with trembling. When he calls you to an
assignment, make sure you accomplish it. In Jeremiah
2:7, God talks about bringing Israel into a plentiful
country to eat the fruit and goodness but not to defile
the land when entering. In verse 13, the Word even says
two evils have been committed by his people. In verse
17, he talks about forsaking the Lord when he led them.
These are warnings to you and me to obey him and not
miss his blessing.
In Matthew 2:16, Herod slays all the children two
years old and younger after the wise men don’t do what
he says. In Mark 2:14, Jesus calls Matthew and says,
“Follow me.” The choice is yours to follow him and be
blessed or to miss out.
The number two in the Word also means you are
not doing the assignment alone, but God is with you.
In Mark 2:15, Jesus sits at a meal with Matthew after
he called him. He took care of him. In Matthew 2:20,
God shows his protection of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus by
sending them into Egypt for protection from the baby
slayings ordered by Herod and providing them with gifts
that were given by the wise men to support them. He’ll
do the same for you, for when he calls you to do something,
he goes with you, blessing and sustaining you. In
Jeremiah 2:7, he mentions how he called Israel into a
plentiful country. Oh how wonderful his sustaining
power is when he calls us!
Expect God to confirm these truths to you during
this second month and walk in the awareness that he will
go with you in what he calls you to do. He also wants to
remind you periodically during the month that if you
say no to what he is asking you to do, he always has
somebody else who will say yes. This is a very important
month for you to stay close to God and not pay attention
to what your flesh may be saying concerning the assignment
he gave you. Carry through on your assignment!
In 2 Chronicles 14:9, the Word records that Asa, who
was a good king, goes into battle against 1,300,000 of
the enemy and God wins a great victory for his people.
In 15:10, the Word declares that Asa calls all his people
together in the third month. They offer a great sacrifice
to God in thanksgiving for all his victories which he
wrought for them. When they got together, they make a
covenant with God to follow him after they had backslid
earlier. God honors his part of the covenant by giving
them rest from their enemies (verse 15).
This month is a great time to come back to Jesus and
re-dedicate everything to him and praise him for all his
past victories for you. This month is also a great time
for God to demonstrate his power, especially when the
odds are against you. In your situation, you may feel like
1,300,000 people are coming against you, but take this
to heart—everything and everybody report to God. “All
things were created by God and for God and by him all
things consist“(Colossians 1:16,17). God controls everything
and he gets the most glory when he wins for you
with the odds stacked against you.
In 2 Chronicles 15:16, in the third month (verse
10), Asa removes his mother from being queen because
she made an idol in the grove. He also cuts down and
destroys the idol. This month is such a great time to
separate yourself from the wrong influence in your life,
92 HENRY WALKER
even if it may be a family member. Don’t let the people
who are continually breaking God’s commandments be
an influence in your life.
How many politicians hire people just because they
are relatives or because they are backers to whom they
owe favors? They may be doing something illegal, and it
is a case of guilty by association. As a result, this month is
a great time to reevaluate the people who have a direct or
indirect influence in your life. This reevaluation will help
you avoid some potential pitfalls in your life and make
you sharper in the future concerning the people you may
allow to get close to you.
Especially during this month, make sure you don’t
have an idol in your life (i.e. somebody or something
that you are putting ahead of God in terms of affection).
An idol could be a person, TV program, the Internet,
money, possessions, beauty (the body), power, fame, psychics,
cults, etc. God may be moving, especially during
this month, to remove anything or anybody that would
potentially separate you from God.
It is recorded in verse 19 of this chapter of 2
Chronicles that after Asa does these things, there was
no more war. When you do the things mentioned above,
Satan has less legal ground in your life to work with.
In 2 Chronicles 31:1, it is recorded that Hezekiah
destroys all the idols in the groves and the high altars. As
a result, offerings come in for the priests and the Levites
in such a great amount that they are piled in high heaps.
These offerings started coming in the third month and
continue until the seventh month (verse 7). What abundance!
Do you see what can happen as you cast the idols
and sin out of your life, especially in this third month?
Abundance comes as a result of this obedience. Again,
these offerings were for the priests and the Levites (the
preachers). Some of you ministers reading this book may
feel dry financially. But, get ready for this third month
abundance as you obey his commands.
The time of Firstfruits starts on Nissan 16 and
ends fifty days later on the feast of Pentecost (Sivan 6)
(Leviticus 23:10–16). The appointed feast prepares us
for Pentecost (Leviticus 23:16–22), which is a promotion,
or explosion, time. This is a period of time when so
many ministries after the season of Firstfruits can start
to take off, or explode, by Pentecost. If they can allow
God to deal with them during that fifty days and open
themselves up to the searching of the Holy Spirit, they
can be put in position on Pentecost, for their promotion.
During the time of Firstfruits, he is removing all the
excess baggage so you can cross over during the season of
Pentecost. This is why it is so important to know God’s
seasons: how he is moving and what he expects us to do.
The season of Firstfruits is not a season of asking for
things, but a period of time where he can prepare you
for things you may start receiving on Pentecost. Again,
Firstfruits is a season of finding out what is not right in
our lives by the searchlight of the Holy Spirit. As we
yield these areas of our lives to him, he removes them
once and for all. Then we are ready for that wonderful
time of Pentecost where he has prepared us to receive
abundantly. Praise him! This is why so many Christians
don’t receive from God. They don’t adapt to his seasons.
The original Pentecost on Mount Sinai was also a
marriage contract that God makes with Israel ( Jeremiah
2:1–3). God also makes a betrothal contract with his
church body (2 Corinthians 11:2). Jew and Gentile are
espoused (betrothed) to Jesus and will soon become his
“wife” (Rev. 19:7–8). This season is also a time where
God can bring ordained couples together for marriage.
94 HENRY WALKER
He can arrange for divine encounters. Those of you who
are single and have had a promise from God concerning
marriage should be attentive for a move of God in this
area at this time of year. God could start to bring that
God ordained companion into your life at the start of
Another aspect of the Day of Pentecost is the fact that
during this feast, two loaves of bread were being offered
in the temple. The two loaves represent the church comprised
of Jew and Gentile alike, both born into Jesus the
Messiah. Look at the start of this feast for God to pour
out a special anointing to bring Jews and Gentiles closer
together. Be aware, be open, and be available for him to
start accomplishing this through you.
Some other aspects of Pentecost in Jerusalem are:
1.) Increase power and boldness- Acts 3:8,
4:13, 19, 30-33, 5:12-16, 10:44-48, 14:19-
23, 19:8-12, 19:11-20, 20:20-24 and
2.) Expansion- After Pentecost, the apostles
started “moving out” in their ministries.
They were now getting around and demonstrating
Jesus’ power operating in their
lives for all to see. With this power, they
started ministering to the needs of many
people, so this season of Pentecost should
generate new power to speak into the lives
of other people in a deeper fashion.
3.) Positioning-In this season of Pentecost,
Elohim is positioning us where we will
be most effective and empowering us
to be able to minister to people in a
deeper and more profound way. The seaNOON
son of Firstfruits is the preparation for
this new empowerment on Pentecost.
Yahshua( Jesus) is working and working
on our flesh (sin habits). As a result, it is so
important to listen and obey His promptings.
Elohim is honoring our desire to
help more of His children in a deeper way
and He is using this time to prepare us.
Seek him during the season of Firstfruits and get
ready for some of the biggest blessings and opportunities
you have ever seen. When God is in a blessing season
like Pentecost, there is no telling what and how much he
will pour out. It all has to do with his timing. He blesses
us every day, but he still has seasons where he has overwhelming
blessings and promotions.
We need to learn and take advantage of God’s movement
during his seasons and not try to force him to
adapt to our period of expectation. As we spend time in
his presence, especially during the time of Unleavened
Bread and Firstfruits, we will see what is expected of us,
and we can be in such a mode of receiving during such a
season as Pentecost.
Let’s summarize the importance of the third month:
1. Re-dedication to Jesus and remembering
all his victories on our behalf.
2. He wins for you, in the face of impossible
3. Remove the people in your life who
could be influencing you away from God,
directly or indirectly.

96 HENRY WALKER
1. The sixth day- Pentecost anointing for
empowerment, expansion, and promotion.
Also, people who had an advantage over
you now lose their advantage. This time
of the month is also a time of positioning
There is a general anointing on this third month for
God to show you he is with you and that he is God
of anything you are going through for him. This is one
of the meanings of the use of the number three in the
Word. He demonstrates his many attributes in this
month more than any other. In this month, God confirms
that he is with you and encourages you.
Let’s look together at some of the books of the Bible
and see the truth about the number three and how it can
affect your life. We will look at situations in the word
where the number three is mentioned.
In Genesis 6:9, the Word says that Noah walks with
God and this was confirmed by the next verse. In verse
10, the Word says that Noah has three sons. This is God
showing Noah that he is going with him. He is going
with you too!
In Genesis 15:5, Abraham is told by God that he
would be the father of many nations. In verse 9, after
Abraham asks God for a sign that this would happen,
God tells him to take a heifer, goat and a ram of three
years old and lay it before him. This was showing by the
number three that God would make sure that he would
bring forth the promise of a son through his bowels.
Again, God can do the impossible in your life too, as
you get him directly involved by turning the situation
over to him. God again confirmed this in Genesis 18:2
where three angels come to Abraham and God confirms
through these angels what he promised before about
Abraham’s seed. Sarah makes three measures of fine
meal for the three angels (verse 6). The fact that there
are three angels and three measures of meal signify that
God would do what he said he would do (Abraham and
Sarah having a son of their own). This is evident in verse
14, where God asked the question “Is there anything too
hard for God?” The mention of the number three means
that God will see to it that his promise will be done.
This is a promise for you and I also; “Is there anything
too hard for God?”
In the book of Exodus, 10:22, Moses stretches forth
his rod and there is darkness three days in Egypt. This
use of the number three signifies that God would take
them out of Egypt and his presence would go with them
as also seen in chapter 33:14–15. In Leviticus 19:23,
God tells them that when they shall come into the new
land that they should plant fruit trees and not eat of the
fruit on them for three years. The use of the number
three again is signifying that God would take them into
their new land. You too!
In Numbers 12:4, God requests that three people
come unto him in the tabernacle (Moses, Aaron, and
Miriam). This was God again reaffirming his promise to
go with them and lead them into the promised land! In
Deuteronomy 16:16, God tells the Israelites that three
times in the year all males should appear before him
(Feast of Tabernacles, Unleavened Bread, and the Feast
of Weeks). Again, this was signifying the fact that he
would take them into the new land. Keeping these three
feasts signifies that he would bring them in.
In Joshua 1:11, God tells the people that in three days
they would cross over the Jordan River into the promise

land. God’s word is always true. If he said that he would
bring you in, he will.
Remember, during the third month, God is confirming
that he is God over whatever you are facing and that
he will be with you to carry you through. Let him show
forth his many attributes in your life during this month.
FOURT H MONTH
Tammuz ( June- July)
In Jeremiah 39:14, after the Babylonians conquered
Jerusalem, Jeremiah is delivered from prison (his people
didn’t listen to his prophecy and threw him into prison).
This happens in the fourth month (verse 2). The king,
Zedekiah, who also didn’t listen to Jeremiah, is thrown
into prison after his sons are slain right before his eyes.
Also, his eyes are plucked out (verses 6–8). He takes
Jeremiah’s place in prison. As a result, this is a great
month for God to confirm the word he gave you for others,
even though they wouldn’t listen. He can also deliver
you from any plans that they may have against you. He
may put your enemies and the people who wouldn’t listen
to the word God gave you for them into the same
situation they had devised against you. The tables might
In Ezekiel 1, the Lord shows a vision to Ezekiel of
four creatures joined to each other and going in the same
direction, guided by the Spirit of God. He also sees
them determined to continue in the direction the Spirit
of God leads them (verses 4–12). This vision occurs on
the fifth day of the fourth month. This is a great time
for God to put things in or back into order. He can give
fresh direction or confirm direction already given. This
is a time where he wants to raise up teams with one God
given purpose and no big egos. This time is an excellent
time to send out teams for important assignments.
100 HENRY WALKER
You have correctly waited for the right time to put your
plan into effect and this is one of the times during the
year where God says, “Push out from the shore or take
off.” He has been assembling the team and they are now
ready. Don’t wait too long to do so because all of God’s
windows of opportunity do close eventually. The fire
of the Holy Ghost is on these teams (verse 13). These
teams will make a lot of noise in the devil’s territory (v.
As recorded in Zechariah 8:19, God talks about the
fast of the fourth month as a fast of joy. It is a time for
celebration, so celebrate with the Lord. Have a Holy
Ghost party. Celebrate what he has done or will do, by
faith. Drive the devil crazy with the noise of the party.
God also mentions, as recorded in verses 20–21, that
multitudes will come your way. Believe for increase in
ministry, business, anointing, etc. This is truly a time of
joy. It is a time where God will make up for the times of
sadness. Praise him!
Let’s summarize the importance of the fourth month
as a whole:
1. God confirming the word that he gave
you for others, who didn’t pay heed.
2. God reverses the plans of the people who
refused to believe the word you had for
3. Celebration of what God has done or
will do and another great time for godly
A summary of the importance of specific days during
1. Fifth Day- Time for God to send out
teams that will follow his leading, in one
accord. They will have the fire of the Holy
Ghost and make a lot of noise in the devil’s
The number four in the Word stands for the earth.
There are four seasons and four directions (north, east,
south, and west).Your attack is on the earth and he will
give you victory on the earth. In this fourth month especially,
God is telling you that since the attack is affecting
you in the natural, he is about to give you victory in the
natural. God knows we exist in the natural and we need
to be blessed in this arena too. He just wants our souls
to prosper first (3 John 2). He is about to prepare a table
in the midst of your enemies (Psalm 23:5). He also says
that in nothing shall you be ashamed (Romans 10:11).
The very area that the enemy is attacking is the very area
that God is ready to bless you in this month. Job got
blessed double after his trial.
Let’s look at the use of the number four in the Word
by looking at some chapters and verses with the number
four: “The earth is God’s and the fullness thereof ”
In Mark 4:1–23, Jesus talks about the seed in the
earth, showing us that we are his seed in the earth and
that we will bring forth much fruit here. In verse 28,
Jesus talks about the earth again as he mentions that our
blessings come on the earth as a blade, then an ear, then
a full corn in the ear. When you see the blade of your
miracle, the little cloud the size of a man’s hand, then
you need to rejoice! Your victory is near, right on the
earth. In verses 35–41, he shows us his power over the
things of the earth by calming the sea. He can do it for
you right where you are, right on the earth.
This truth about the number four is further evident
102 HENRY WALKER
in Daniel 3:25, where Nebuchadnezzar sees four in the
fiery furnace. This means to you that nothing on earth
(number four), nor anything in the natural, can separate
you from God. He also will deliver you from any fiery
furnace that may be against you on the earth!
In Acts 12:4, Peter is delivered to four quaternions of
soldiers to be guarded in prison (four squads of four soldiers
each). As you can see from verses 7–11, the number
four in this chapter in verse 4 means that nothing on
earth can keep Peter in prison. God sets him free and
leads him out! He promises to do the same for you, especially
during this fourth month.
In Acts 27:29, Paul is on a ship going toward Rome
and a great storm comes against the ship. They cast four
anchors and are fearful. In chapter 28, Paul is delivered
from the storm and is taken to the destination God had
purposed for him (Acts 28:30–31). Nothing on earth
(number four) could stop him.
In Exodus 25:12, Moses is told by God to put four
rings of gold on the Ark of the Covenant in the tabernacle.
Jesus is our ark of safety, our God (gold) who came
on the earth (number four) to save us from our sins.
Nothing on earth could stop him, nor can anything stop
you from getting where God wants you to go. God will
especially bless you during this fourth month. Expect!
Av ( July-Aug.)
In Jeremiah 52:12, the Word says the enemy invades and
takes Jerusalem on the tenth day of the fifth month. This
is a time to be on guard to a greater degree for the attack
of the enemy. I don’t want you to be devil-conscious, but
listen carefully to the Spirit of God as he warns.
On the same day of the same month in Ezekiel 20,
God tells his people to remember how their ancestors
rebelled against him and his ways and worshiped idols.
He pleads with them not to make the same mistake. He
also mentions that he wants to bring them into land he
promised them. He is saying the same thing today, especially
during this month (i.e. forsake any idols and obey
His sword is ready to strike. We need to go back with
the Holy Spirit and allow him to bring to mind the sins
of our ancestors, ask him to forgive them, break any
curses, replace our ungodly beliefs with godly beliefs,
and allow him to remove any and all spirit/soul hurts
from the past. He wants an opportunity to clean up our
past and get our attention off of people and onto him.
He wants to remove any and all idols.
He also mentions in verse 38 that he wants to remove
the rebels from amongst them. He wants to do the same
thing today, especially at this time of the year. He wants
to remove those people in your life who are rebelling
against him and might be causing you to do the same.
104 HENRY WALKER
Believe that God will bring those negative influences
out of your children’s lives at the same time. There is a
special anointing to do so at this time. He says in verses
42 and 44 that if we do the above mentioned concerning
the sins of our ancestors, he will then bring us into
our land of inheritance for his mercies’ sake. Wow! Take
advantage of his mercy.
In Ezra 7:8, the Word mentions that Ezra arrives
at Jerusalem in the fifth month after traveling three
months from Babylon to rebuild the temple of God. He
arrives at his purpose at last. This could be the time that
you arrive at your purpose. Be on the alert; your purpose
could be right in front of you and be revealed at this time
of the year.
At the time of his arrival in Jerusalem to rebuild the
temple, he has in his possession all he needed to finish
the job. Artaxerxes, the king of Babylon, had given him
gold and silver to use in whatever way he deemed fit
for rebuilding the temple of God. He also gave a letter
ordering treasurers in the area along the way to do the
same if he didn’t have enough. Artaxerexes commanded
that all the money would be tax-free (verse 24). Can you
believe for the same favor to do your purpose?
There is a special anointing on this time of the year
for this favor. God will touch people’s hearts to do this
in your life. All the people Ezra needs to help him do
his purpose are there and in place (verse 28). Please take
advantage of this season and expect provision for the
Also, as I mentioned in the chapter on the fourth
month, the Lord set aside certain months for celebration
as recorded in Zechariah 8:19. Besides the fourth
month, he also set aside this month. So rejoice in the
Lord for what he has done and will do for you. Believe
for increase as blessings, people, and opportunities start
coming your way (verse 21–23).
In Jeremiah 28:1, in the fifth month, the false prophet
Hananiah mentions that God would break the yoke of
the king of Babylon, and within two years all that the
enemy took would be returned to his people. He didn’t
believe Jeremiah’s prophecy that the king of Babylon
would conquer them and keep them in captivity for seventy
years. He tries to contradict his prophecy with a
false one. God speaks through Jeremiah that this false
prophet would die within a year, which happens.
This is also a time for judgment on the false prophets
who have led God’s people astray. God cares too much
for his people to continue to allow the false prophets to
continue, especially if they don’t repent. A prophecy is
special and personal. People open their spirits to prophecy
and he doesn’t want his people hurt.
Let’s summarize the importance of the fifth month
as a whole:
1. Be ready! Expect all the provisions for the
vision he has given you to start coming
from people he brings into your life.
2. Joyous celebration during this month.
3. Time of punishment of false prophets
who refuse to repent.
A summary of the importance of specific days during
1. Tenth day- Be on guard for a possible
major attack from the enemy. Go back
with the Holy Spirit and let him get rid
of the effect of past events in your life
and the lives of your ancestors.
106 HENRY WALKER
The number five stands for God coming into your
trial redeeming, restoring, and strengthening you, in
order for you to arrive where he wants you to go in him.
During this fifth month is when God personally wants to
come to refresh you. This is when you need his refreshment
the most. During this month is when he wants to
walk into your situation (trial) and not only refresh you,
but let you know that he will take you the rest of the way.
He wants to give you strength to continue onto the rest
of the trial.
In the gospel of John, chapter 5, verses 1–9, there is
a pool with five porches and there is a man who had an
infirmity for thirty-eight years. Jesus comes and heals
him (verse 9). He will do the same for you right now, if
you believe. Believe and receive your healing right now
in Jesus’ name!
In Mark 5:1–17, Jesus comes to the country of
the Galdarenes and sets a man free who is filled with
demons. He can do the same for you now. Believe and
receive your deliverance right now in the name of Jesus!
Later, in verse 41, Jesus raises Jarius’s daughter from the
dead after coming to her house. He can come where you
are and raise up whatever is dead in your life.
In Luke 5:2, there is a picture of fishermen who had
finished fishing and were cleaning their nets. To them
this was not a time to fish. Here is another situation
where Jesus is coming on the scene to help a situation
that seemed hopeless. They allow Jesus to use their boat
for his purposes, and he then fills their boat with fish.
He’ll do the same for you. Do his business, and he will
get into your business and bless it. He can fill and bless
you to overflowing. Take advantage of this and move
with him during this last of the last times.
In Matthew 5:1, Jesus sees that the people needed
something. He comes to them and shows them truths
they need (the Beatitudes). He shows them important
truths on how to attract his anointing and blessings in
their lives by his Beatitude teaching. So believe during
this fifth month that Jesus is coming your way to
strengthen and encourage you during your trial. It may
seem hopeless, but he is coming. All things were created
by him and for him and by him all things consist.
Everything and everybody is under his control. Praise
In Haggai 1:1–9, in the sixth month on the first day of
the month, the Lord admonishes his people. He said,
“You all have your house, what about mine?” They are
going through a period of no rain, a drought because
they are not obeying him. He tells them to build his
house. He also mentions in verse 13 that he was with
them and they would not be building alone.
At this time of the year, God is saying to us to step
out by faith and do what he asked us to do. If he asked
you to build something for him, start building. Some of
you already have the land, now build. He already brought
you to this point in your life; now carry through on what
he has asked you to do. He doesn’t only mean to build
something physically. He may be asking you at this time
to start stepping out in ministry. When you do, he will
start shaping and building your ministry, but you have to
step out first. Abraham leaves where he was and goes into
a new land, in order to be blessed (Hebrews 11:8–10).
In Haggai 1:14–15, the Word says that on the twenty
fourth day of this month, God starts stirring up helpers
for this work. He’ll do the same for you. Again step out in
faith. You will be so surprised about whom God will call to
help. He will also call people with means to help finance
the work. Don’t take on the burden of building by yourself.
During this month, the season of Teshuvah occurs.
The season of Teshuvah is a call to repentance.
110 HENRY WALKER
Repentance means more than turning from one’s sins; it
is a return to God and to the right path. Teshuvah begins
on Elul 1, the first day of the sixth month. The season of
Teshuvah is a time for each person to examine his own
life. It is also a time to restore relationships with other
people. It is a continuation of the Feast of Unleavened
Bread and Firstfruits in the sense of self-examination
and being conformed to the image of Jesus.
Teshuvah is a forty-day season which starts on Elul
1 and ends on Yom Kippur, which is ten days after Rosh
HaShannah (Feast of Trumpets). God always has a special
season of repentance before a season of a mighty
move of promotion. The season of Teshuvah is no exception.
The season that this time of Teshuvah is preparing
one for is Rosh HaShannah, or the Feast of Trumpets,
which occurs in the seventh month.
God’s promotion, for the most part, only comes in
certain seasons. This is why it is so important to recognize
the seasons of preparation for promotion, breakthrough,
and other rich blessings. Praise him!
This time is also a season of making sure that one
is right with God, or born again. During a Feast of
Trumpets, or Rosh HaShannah, in the future is when
Jesus is coming back for us in the Rapture. This is why
Teshuvah is so important: to make sure that one is right
with God by being born again. It is also important for
those who are born again to draw closer to Jesus and
continue to allow God to change them into the image of
his Son during this season.
In Ezekiel 8:1, Ezekiel says in the fifth day of the
sixth month that he sees a vision from God. In verse 7,
the Word says that God shows him a hole in the wall
of his sanctuary. He sees idols painted on the walls and
people doing abominable things in his sanctuary. In verse
14, Ezekiel sees women weeping for Tammuz, the son of
Seminaris, a pagan Queen from Babylon. In verse 16,
the Word says that God shows even worse abominations
(i.e. twenty-five men worshiping the sun). God says in
verse 18 that he was going to deal with them in his fury.
At this time of the year, God is pouring out his same
wrath on some in his church who are committing abominations.
How many pastors treat their people (really,
God’s people) as if they are cattle that have been branded
with their denominational mark? They see dollar signs
over their heads. They get so upset if God calls some of
their members to visit another congregation, especially
if that congregation is not part of their denomination.
They are jealous, covetous, and greedy. God is about to
pour out his wrath on them at this time. Just watch! This
is the same righteous anger that came on Jesus in driving
out the money-changers in the temple, his house.
In Luke 1:26, the Word says that the angel Gabriel is
sent to Mary the mother of Jesus in the sixth month. He
announces to her that the Holy Spirit would overshadow her
and that she would bear a son, who would be the Son of
the Highest. At this time of the year, the Holy Spirit wants
to overshadow all your fears, worries, incapabilities, and low
esteem and plant a seed of purpose in you. He wants to overshadow
your past and do a marvelous work in you that he
can bring out of you at a later time in order to bless others.
Later on, Mary goes to her cousin Elizabeth’s house,
and Elizabeth recognizes that God has blessed her and
speaks a promise into her life. Others will recognize that
God has done a work in you at this time of the year. In
verses 46–49, the Word says that this is when she conceives
as the Holy Spirit overshadows her body, soul, and
spirit. He couldn’t do it where Joseph was located. This
is why she had to leave and go to Elizabeth’s house.
112 HENRY WALKER
This time of the year, God may ask you to leave
situations, relationships, positions, etc., in order to get
blessed. Be alert! He wants you alone in his presence, in
order for him to overshadow and bless you. There may
be a gentle but powerful drawing on you to come into his
presence that you never felt before. This is the reason:
that he may conceive a work or a vision in you that many
will recognize and be blessed by. Mary says in verse 48
that all generations will call her blessed.
Let’s summarize the importance of the sixth month
as a whole:
1. Time for God to overshadow your past,
incapabilities, worries, etc., and plant
something in your spirit that will bless
A summary of the importance of specific days during

called Teshuvah. This is a time for repentance
and returning to the old paths.
2. Fifth day- God will bring great judgment
and wrath on some in his church for their
idols and abominations at this time.
There is a general anointing on this sixth month for
God to bring someone into your life to bless you and
help you with your destiny. Also at this time, the enemy
may try to use an individual to come against you in a
The number six in the Word is the number for man.
Man was created on the sixth day. It has a great meaning
for us during this month. At this time, the devil would
like to use a person—man, woman, boy, or girl—to come
against you, to talk you into giving up, or to try to hinder
you. Sometimes it could be the person closest to you
whom Satan may try to use. Be alert during this month.
You need to keep your focus on Jesus and resist what the
devil is trying to do through that person. Jesus wants you
to keep your eyes on him and not man, especially in a
trial. There is so much at stake.
In Mark 6:1–6, men come against Jesus with unbelief
and Jesus can do no mighty work there (verse 5). Satan
wants man to interfere with your work for God by trying
to bring unbelief your way. They might ask, “Did God
really say that to you?” They may try to put the blame on
you if you are going through a trial, like Job’s friends did.
In Nehemiah 6, the Word says Nehemiah is leading
people to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem. Sanbellat and
Tobiah try to get him to come down (verse 2). In verse
3, Nehemiah says he is doing a great work and will not
come down. This is a prime example of people trying
to get you to give up on what God told you to do and
escape the trial you are going through.
God can also send somebody to bless you during this
month, so be observant. During this sixth month, at the
very least, expect the activity of more people into your
life, one way or another.
Please remember during this sixth month especially
that you need to cut off any influence man has on you to
turn you away from God’s purpose. Remember to look
for God to use somebody to bless you too.
In Jeremiah 28, a false prophet by the name of Hananiah
is telling the Israelites that whatever and whomever the
Babylonians had taken from the Israelites would be
returned within two years (verse 11). Jeremiah rebukes
him and tells him he will die because he was falsely leading
the people (verses 12–17). He dies in the same year
in the seventh month. He had prophesized falsely in the
fifth month (verse 1) and was killed two months later.
Sometimes God’s justice and punishment are swift.
There is a special anointing on this seventh month
to expose and rebuke the false prophets who only want
to prophesy what people want to hear. They also want
to prophesy things that would benefit themselves when
they speak well of the other person. If the person they
are ministering to has money, they want to manipulate
a “prophecy” to benefit themselves and get some of their
This is a time when God wants to cut off their influence
on unsuspecting saints. Some prophets only prophesy
to profit. They may seem to be getting away with
something because justice may seem to be delayed, but
no. God’s punishment is always on time. God says in
Ezekiel 14:9 that he will destroy the false prophets from
the midst of his people. These false prophets fail to realize
that the people they are ministering to are God’s
children and they need to be careful. No human father
116 HENRY WALKER
would permit anybody to mistreat his children, much
In Jeremiah 41:1–2, in the seventh month, Gedaliah,
even though he was warned by Ishmael of a plot to kill
him, rejects this warning and is killed. Some saints need
to be careful during this month especially, and watch for
the devil to try to take back promotions and blessings
God has bestowed. Resist the devil and go on with your
work for Jesus, but be watchful for a retaliation attack by
Satan to try to take back ground God has given to you.
Don’t be overconfident at a victory: stand guard. The
time period right after a victory is the most dangerous
time for some people as they might let down their guard.
In Haggai 2:1, the Word of the Lord came to Haggai
in the seventh month on the twentieth day, and he
encourages Zerubbabel and Joshua to start the work
of rebuilding the temple of God in Jerusalem. He tells
them not to fear and that he is with them (verses 4–5)
in this work.
He is saying the same thing to his people at the same
time of this month. “Be strong, for I am with you to start
and complete the work I have placed on your heart. If
you just take a step in the direction I told you to go, and
don’t look back or doubt, I will enable you to finish my
assignment.” This is a word for you and me today. Sure,
he can initiate a work at any time during the year, but
there is a special anointing on this day and month. It
doesn’t matter who stands in your way; they all report to
God and have to bow to his wishes.
God also speaks to Haggai in verse 7 that he will
bring people to help him in the work, and in verse 8, he
says that all the gold and silver is his. He is telling Haggai
that not only would he bring the people to help and be a
part of this work, but that he would finance everything.
The same promise is for you and me, so claim it with me.
You don’t need to borrow from the world to build the
building God asked you to build, but trust him to bring
the finances and the workers. Oh how great is his favor!
God confirms this promise in Zechariah 8:19–23. He
says that this seventh month would be a time of joy and
feasting. He also says he would cause people to come to
the temple, seeking him and his presence. God is not
setting you up in your own building and ministry to fail,
but that so many would come your way to find him. Just
make sure he is with and behind you and approves your
purpose. This is an excellent time of the year for him to
confirm his approval. God won’t bring the people to see
you, but to draw closer and find him.
Rosh HaShannah, or the Feast of Trumpets, is truly
a season of a new beginning. This feast occurs on the
first day of the seventh month. It is a two-day feast. This
feast is thirty days after Teshuvah and ten days before
Yom Kippur. According to many Jewish teachers, the
day of trumpets involves the sounding of the last trump.
The last trump is a blast of the Shofar (a trumpet made
from a curved ram’s horn) that is blown on this day.
When Abraham was told to sacrifice Isaac, a ram was
caught in the thicket. The left horn was called the first
trump and the right horn, the last trump. The first trump
was blown on the original Pentecost on Mount Sinai
(Exodus 19:13). The last trump will be blown on the last
day of a particular Feast of Trumpets in the future, when
Jesus may return to take us in the Rapture. This season
reminds us that he is coming for us on some future day,
possibly on this feast and to be ready.
In 2 Thessalonians 2:3, the Word says there will be
a falling away before the day of the Lord. The phrase
day of Lord refers to the seven-year tribulation period
118 HENRY WALKER
and the millennium period of one thousand years after
the end of the tribulation. I believe the phrase falling
away is a mistranslation of the Greek word apostasia
and should be translated departure. The root verb of
this word is aphistemi, which is found fifteen times in
the New Testament. It is translated depart eleven times.
Although it is often found translated in similar meanings,
the predominant meaning of this verb is the act of
a person departing from another person or from a place.
I believe the correct rendering of this apostasia, in the
context of Paul’s Greek word, means a departure and not
any kind of falling away. His context is not revealing any
kind of apostasy, but instead, teaching concerning the
coming of Jesus for his saints. This verse shows that the
Rapture will occur before the tribulation period.
Paul described this event in 1 Thessalonians 4:17.
“Then we which are alive and remain shall be caughtup
together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord
in the air,” which then proves that this event involves
a departure from the earth. Another word we need to
look at in the Greek is the word caught-up in this verse
(I Thess. 4:17). This Greek word is harpuzo, meaning
to catch away. Its Hebrew equivalent is the word natzal,
which in its root form, means to deliver.
Those who don’t go in the Rapture will face a seven
year time of the wrath of God, tribulation, and indignation.
So every celebration of Rosh HaShannah points
to a particular Rosh HaShannah, or Feast of Trumpets,
in the future when Jesus could come back for us. Also,
every celebration of this feast warns us to be ready for
this great event. Some of the reasons why the Feast of
Trumpets may be the most likely day in any particular
year for the Rapture to take place are:
1.) Jesus was born, died and was buried on
the Feast of Passover, resurrected during
Unleavened Bread and on the Feast
of Firstfruits. Also, the infilling of the
Holy Ghost happened on the Feast of
Pentecost. God was trying to show the
Jews that Jesus was their Messiah, by
causing the most important events in the
life of Jesus (Yahshua) to happen on the
four Jewish Spring Feast Days. Is God still
trying to reveal Yahshua to the Jews? Of
course, He is. The next important event
in the life of Yahshua is His Coming for
His Bride, at the Rapture, accompanied
by the sound of the TRUMPET (1st
Thessalonians 4:16). The next Feast Day
to be fulfilled during the year is the fifth
Feast, the Feast of TRUMPETS. This
feast seems to be the logical and perfect fit
for the Rapture, just like the sixth Feast,
the Feast of Atonement (Yom Kippur) is
the possible perfect fit for the start of the
Great Tribulation and the literal Second
Coming of Yahshua, possibly at the end of
the Great Tribulation.
2.) Many believe that when Jesus said that
“No man knows the day or the hour,” He
was referring to the Feast of Trumpets, as
the time of the Rapture. This is the only
Feast Day when “No man knows the day
or the hour.” This day is the Jewish Civil
New Year. Until the first sliver of the new
moon is sighted in Jerusalem, the Jewish
New Year, Feast of Trumpets, cannot
begin. It could take place at any time over
a 48-hour period, but nobody knows for
120 HENRY WALKER
sure the exact day or hour. Therefore, the
Jews now observe the Feast of Trumpets,
over two days. Therefore, the Feast of
Trumpets became known by the Jewish
idiom of “No man knows the day or the
In Luke 21:25-28, Jesus speaks to us, the end-time
watchers, “And there SHALL BE SIGNS in the sun,
and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth
distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and waves
roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking
after those things which are coming on the earth:
for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall
they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power
and great glory. And when these things BEGIN to come
to pass, “THEN LOOK UP, AND LIFT UP YOUR
HEADS; FOR YOU REDEMPTION DRAWETH
If you are unsaved, or in a lukewarm, or backslidden
spiritual condition, you need to call out to the Lord and
repent before it is eternally too late. Your time to get
your heart right before the Lord is quickly drawing to
a close now. Pray this prayer, and mean it in your heart:
“Dear Father, I know that I am a sinner. I believe in my
heart that Yahshua died for my sins. Right now, I repent
of my sins and turn towards you, Father. Give me power
and victory over my sins. It is my sincere desire to serve
you from this day forward. I want to be conformed to
the image of Yahshua ( Jesus). Show me what I must do
to be prepared for your soon return, and fill me with
your Holy Spirit. Thank you, Lord, for saving me. In the
name of our soon-coming Saviour, (Yahshua) Amen.”
Jesus said, “If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will
come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what
hour I will come upon thee” (Revelation 3:3). He is
obviously saying that to the one who watches, He will
not come as a thief and that person will know the hour!
Doubters may mention Paul’s words that the day
of the Lord will come like “a thief in the night” (1
Thessalonians 5:2).It is clear that Jesus will not come as
a “thief in the night” for watchful believers, because in
verse 4, Paul tells us, “But you, brothers, are not in darkness
so that this day should surprise you like a thief.” If
we are trusting in Yahshua and looking for His coming,
Paul said that even the very day does not have to surprise
Jesus rebuked those who did not understand the signs
of the times in His day: “O ye hypocrites, ye can discern
the face of the sky, but can ye not discern the signs of the
times” (Matthew 16:3).
God said, “Surely the Lord God will do nothing,
but He revealeth His secret unto His
servants the prophets.” (Amos 3:7). God said
“nothing,” and He did not exclude Christ’s
return. Take Him at His word. God said, “I
have even from the beginning declared it to
thee; before it came to pass I shewed it thee”
Friends confide in one another. Abraham was called
God’s “friend” (Isaiah 41:8; James 2:23). “And the LORD
said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do”
(Genesis 18:17). Now, because of Jesus’ atonement, we
are called friends of God: “I no longer call you servants,
because a servant does not know his master’s business.
Instead, I ( Jesus) have called you friends” ( John 15:15).
122 HENRY WALKER
The Bible also says that Jesus was crucified so that the
blessing of Abraham, part of which was friendship with
God, would come upon the Gentiles - us (Galatians
3:14).God clearly promised that we would know at least
approximately when Christ will return, and even “the
day” will not surprise those watching.
In addition, there is ample precedent for God revealing
specific times in advance.
1.) He gave Noah advance notice of when the
flood would be (Genesis 6, 7).
2.) He told Abraham how long the Israelites
would be in Egypt (Genesis 15:13).
3.) He revealed to many the very day of
Elijah’s rapture (2 Kings 2:3, 5).
4.) He told Jeremiah how long the Babylonian
exile would be ( Jeremiah 29:10).
5.) He told Daniel exactly when Messiah would
come the first time (Daniel 9:25-26).
Obviously, leaving us clueless now would violate
God’s own established pattern as revealed in His Word!
Also obviously, we are not left clueless. There are many
signs. Let us remain watchful and ready, and be found
doing the Master’s work.
I believe that this Feast could be possibly fulfilled
sometime in the future by His Coming in the Rapture
for His saints! Please be watchful, ready and help get
your family ready! Please read my message on “Steps to
be Rapture Ready!” on the first page of my website (www.
henrywalker.org), by clicking on “Messages.” You don’t
want to be around for the Great Tribulation (Please also
read my message “Tribulation Preview” by also clicking
on “Messages” to see more of the great suffering that will
take place during this seven year period of time.) Every
season of Rosh HaShannah is a wonderful anointed
time where God can bring about a new beginning in
your life and promote. You need to take advantage of
the time of Teshuvah (starts thirty days prior) to prepare
for Rosh HaShannah. We need to expect God to
take us higher and higher in his anointing during Rosh
HaShannah. We talked earlier about the beginning of
the year on Nisan 1 (our March-April time period) in
the section on the “First Month.” Rosh HaShannah is
another attempt by God to give people a new beginning.
This time is the civil New Year to many Jews, as opposed
to the religious New Year of Nisan 1. It is so important
to adapt to God’s seasons and to do what is necessary, at
the right time, to receive his blessings that are reserved
mostly for the particular season you are in.
Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), on the tenth day
in the seventh month, is ten days after Rosh HaShannah
and ends the forty days of Teshuvah. This feast, when
it was celebrated originally, was a temporal atonement
and redemption. The great tribulation may start ten
days after the Rapture (which could occur on Tishri 1,
or Rosh HaShannah), on Tishri 10, which is the Day of
Atonement. The Great Tribulation may end seven years
later on the Day of Atonement, and it may also be the
day of the second coming of Jesus.
This Feast (Day of Atonement) is a time where believers
who are feeling oppressed and surrounded by enemies
can take solace that Jesus is coming to deliver. This is a
great day of deliverance. Jesus can surely deliver any day
of the year, but this is a special day to meet the need of
deliverance. Believers who need deliverance in any area of
their lives should take advantage of the special anointing
124 HENRY WALKER
on this day. During this time we need to instruct people
to reach out with extra faith and receive their deliverance,
no matter how long they have been oppressed.
Remember that the oppression of the Great
Tribulation may end on Yom Kippur, the Day of
Atonement. People who are on earth during the seven
years of the Tribulation and come to Jesus will be delivered
from the oppression of the antichrist. Praise him!
Every previous Day of Atonement before the one that
may start the Great Tribulation announces the start of a
period where God is going to unleash a season of wrath
onto the earth, in order to warn people to repent. This is
evidenced by the Great Tribulation possibly starting on
the Day of Atonement.
One of the best ways to avoid giving into the spirit
of the antichrist and going through the Tribulation is to
study and meditate on what Jesus said to the churches
in Revelation chapters 2 and 3. What Jesus spoke to the
churches in Revelation 2 and 3 is to prepare saints for the
Rapture, where Jesus will take his saints away with him,
before the great tribulation. This is evident in Revelation
4:1, where Jesus uses the term “Come up hither.” It is
important to see if we fall short and can identify with
any of the warnings to his churches in chapters 2 and 3.
Be careful that you haven’t left your first love, Jesus. This
is just one of the warnings to his church. Stay away from
pride and self.
Some other aspects of Yom Kippur or the Day of
The original rites and practices for the Day of
Atonement are set forth in the sixteenth chapter of
Leviticus and (Exodus 30:10; Leviticus 23:27-31, 25:9;
Numbers 29:7-11). An unusual ceremony related to the
Day of Atonement is discussed in Leviticus 16. Skipping
down to verses 9-10, this passage states: And Aaron shall
bring the goat on which the LORD’s lot fell, and offer it
as a sin offering. But the goat on which the lot fell was
to be the scapegoat that was presented alive before the
LORD, to make atonement upon it, and to let it go as
the scapegoat (Azalel) into the wilderness.
The Slain Goat Represents Christ-The slain goat
represents Jesus who actually dies for our sins. Jesus’ sacrifice
is an atonement sacrifice to reconcile us to God.
The Live Goat Represents Satan- The New Testament
shows that this is exactly what happens when Christ
returns. Jesus’ return as King of kings is described in
Revelation 19:11–21. Then, in Revelation 20:1,2, 3, we
read that a mighty angel is appointed to remove Satan.
“He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is
the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;
and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him
up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the
nations no more till the thousand years were finished.”
Another consideration is the fact that the priestly
clothing which the High Priest was to wear on this one
occasion was very different from that which he normally
wore in the course of his duties. During his normal
duties, the High Priest wore beautiful colored materials;
intricate embroidery, gold and jewelry that made
him look like a king during his normal duties. On the
Day of Atonement he looked more like a servant. His
outfit consisted of four simple garments in white linen,
even plainer than the vestments of the ordinary priest
(Exodus. 39:27-29). This shows his servant hood and
humility to the KING.
In regard to this study on the Day of Atonement, we
can see our responsibility as priests: So many Christians
want to be a Prophet or an Apostle because they think
126 HENRY WALKER
that these are glamorous callings but very few want to be
Priests for the LORD. The word says in 1 Peter 2 verse
9: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood,
a holy nation, a peculiar people that you should show
forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness
into His marvelous light.” It is such an honor to
be a priest for the LORD to intercede for His children
because they are so close to His heart. He will always
take care of His priests.
All of us are called to be priests but not all will accept
this calling. Being a priest for God, to intercede for His
people, is the highest calling, but it takes a non-compromised
attitude and preparation on our part. God’s
greatest blessings are reserved for His priests, the ones
who are willing to stand in the gap for His children and
to speak what the Father wants to say to them. To be a
spokesperson for the Father with His children requires a
holy, consecrated life. One has to continually turn their
flesh over to the Holy Ghost to destroy the works of the
flesh and to desire, above all, to conform to the image
of Jesus (Rom. 8:13, 29). As we can see, the Feast of the
Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur reminds us of our
positions as Priests of the Lord!
I next want to show you, with the help of the Holy
Spirit that the Tabernacle Plan(Exodus 30) is a type of
our ministering to others as priests for the LORD. The
following is an analysis of this using the Tabernacle Plan
in order from the Altar to the High Holy Place:
(Altar of incense) (5.)
High Holy Place:
(Mercy Seat-over the ark of the covenant) (6.)
(Ark of Covenant) (7.)
(Cherubim-over the mercy seat) (8.)
(Manna-in the ark of the covenant) (9.)
(Aaron’s rod that budded-in the ark of the covenant) (10.)
(Ten Commandments-in the ark of the covenant) (11.)
Again, this whole arrangement applies to us ministering
for God to others as these numbers and steps
apply to the corresponding numbers on the Tabernacle
1.) Have to be in an attitude of repentance
(death to ourselves) before we minister.
2.) We have to have an active procedure of
cleansing our selves with the washing of
the Word. We see who we really are.
3.) He is our Light that shows us how to minister
effectively in the Gifts of the Spirit.
4.) He sustains us as we battle spiritually for
an individual’s breakthrough.
5.) He directs our prayers, as we minister to
6.) Only by His mercy can we come into His
presence to minister to others. The Mercy
Seat also reminds us of Jesus’ divinity, as it
was overlaid with pure gold
128 HENRY WALKER
7.) Reminds us of Jesus’ humanity (wood)
and that the Father knows that we are frail
humans and really need His gifts to minister
8.) Angels are messengers to give us instruction
from the Father to minister in the
Gifts of the Spirit.
9.) More strength to battle in the spirit for
others. This strength comes from spending
time in His presence.
10.) Reminds us of His authority that He has
given us to minister to His children. God
showed Aaron’s authority to the doubters
by his rod budding.
11.) Reminds us of His ways, His commandments,
as we minister.
The Feast of Tabernacles starts on the fifteenth day in
the seventh month and ends on the twenty-second day.
In Leviticus 23:33–34, God reveals the establishment of
his appointed time called Sukkot, or Tabernacles. This
appointed time commemorates the time when Israel
traveled in the wilderness as God led them. During this
time, God lived with his people in his own tabernacle.
He also provided a cloud of covering that shaded the
people by day and a cloud of fire to warm his people by
Just what does this feast mean for us? I feel that
one of the meanings of this season is that this is a time
where God will give fresh direction in ministries and
start moving them toward some uncharted areas. This is
a season where the new direction he was preparing you
for will start to come into view. Again, this is a wonderful
season to step out as he leads. He may anoint some
of his people to change locations. This is a time where
God will clear out obstacles in the way of his people in
order for them to move, much like one would clear out
brush going through a jungle. This is a time when God
will make a change of locations smoother than one could
ever imagine. Just like he moved his people out of Egypt,
he tells some of his people to move now! He creates an
opening that one needs to take complete advantage of.
This is definitely a time to stay up with the moving of
the Holy Spirit and take advantage of his window of
opportunity. This also a time where all the preparations
he put you through pay off as release happens.
Also, this feast is also known as the Feast of Nations.
During this festival, seventy sacrifices were offered with
each being understood as a representation of each of the
seventy nations of the known world at that time.
Another key truth of this festival is the use of the number
seven. A fascinating thing about the sacrifices during
Tabernacles is that when the offerings were grouped
together or counted, their number always remains divisible
by seven. During the week of Tabernacles, or Sukkot,
there are 182 sacrifices (70 bullocks, 14 rams, and 98
lambs, divides by 7 into 182 exactly 26 times). Add to
this the grain offerings, 336 tenths of ephahs of flour (48
x 7) (Numbers 29:12–40). This use of the number seven,
which means completion, is that God wants to complete
some things he started in your life during this season.
God is a God of fulfillment. “Being confident of this
very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you
will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians
Another theme for the appointed time of Sukkot
is called The Festival of Ingathering. This time of year
marks the times of the harvest, the final ingathering of
130 HENRY WALKER
all produce before the coming winter (Exodus 23:16).
This is a time where there is a tremendous anointing
being poured out by God to get people saved. Expect
God to put you into key situations where there are
unsaved people. You will find that God can engineer
divine encounters to bring strangers into your life for
the express purpose of bringing them to salvation. You
will find that those whom you least expected to desire to
get saved will start asking questions. Please, please, take
advantage of this season.
In Zechariah 14:16–21, the Word talks about the
millennium period of time, a period of one thousand
years after the great tribulation period. The chapter talks
about some of the effects that will take place in the lives
of people who do not come to Jerusalem to keep this
feast. In verses 17 and 18, the Word mentions that the
ones that don’t come won’t have any rain. Rain speaks of
refreshing and moisture for those who are dry. This is a
great season of refreshment. Remember how God led and
protected his people during their time in the wilderness
and watch how he pours out his refreshment anointing
on you. In verse 21, God says that no Canaanite will be
there during this feast in Jerusalem. This is a promise to
you that God can take the deceitful enemies out of your
life. Claim and believe this, especially during this season.
Let’s summarize the importance of the seventh
month as a whole:
1. A time of punishment for false prophets.
2. A possible time of Satan trying to rob promotions.
A summary of the importance of specific days during
1. First Day–Season of Rosh HaShannah, a
time of new beginnings and promotion.
2. Tenth Day–Season of the Day of
Atonement, a season of judgment by God,
but also a time of great deliverance. The
Great Tribulation may possibly start on
this feast some time in the future.
3. Fifteenth Day–Season of Tabernaclestime
for God to give new direction and for
one to step out boldly in this new direction.
Also this season is a great time for a
great harvest of souls in all nations.
4. Twentieth Day–Another time to start
building a work for God. God will finance
and send workers for this new work.
There is a special meaning to the number seven in
the Word. The number seven means that God is about
to complete something in your life. Besides the seventh
hour of the day, there is an anointing in the seventh
month as a whole for increased activity on God’s part to
complete promotions and other blessings in your life at
any time during the month.
In 1 Kings 6:38, the Word says that the temple which
Solomon built for God is finished and completed in the
eighth month. There is such an anointing on this month
for God to complete what he started, even if the process
has been going on for a long period of time and give you
a new beginning. This is a great time for God to finish
what he promised that he would do for you.
Expect him to wrap up lawsuits hanging out there
in your favor. Look for God to move on those people
who are holding onto the finances they promised you.
Look for God to complete your job search with an offer
of a position that fits you perfectly. Look for God to
finish having your new house completed where it has
been delayed and delayed. God can complete healing
processes both physically and emotionally. He can complete
your wilderness experiences and promote you like
Moses (Exodus 3:10) and Daniel (Daniel 5:29). Look
for God to complete that trial that seems to be going on
so long. This is a time where you can say, Thank God I
hung in there because the ordeal is over. This is a great time
to finally receive your breakthrough or new beginning.
In 1 Kings 12:32, Jeroboam sets up a pagan feast day
in the eighth month on the fifteenth day. Look for the
possibility of the spirit of the antichrist to try to interfere
with a move of God by demonstrating more power during
this time. This spirit likes to have religious events
134 HENRY WALKER
try to cloud a true move of God. Jeroboam wanted to
have his own feasts for the ten tribes up north so his
people would not miss the godly feasts their brothers
in the south were having. This was in conflict with the
godly feasts God had instructed his people to have.
This spirit wants people to believe the false and miss
the real. Don’t be afraid, just be alert. An example would
be that you are going to a real anointed church and somebody
invites you to see a prophet who came to town. He
starts speaking some condemnation into your life and
sets you back on God’s timetable. This is an example of
the spirit of the antichrist wanting to take someone out
of purpose (1 John 2:18–19). So stay focused on purpose,
especially during this time to avoid this snare.
Let’s summarize the importance of the eighth month
as a whole:
1. A time for God to complete things in your
life, to finalize situations in your favor and
give you a new beginning.
A summary of the importance of specific days during
1. Fifteenth Day–A time to be especially
focused as the spirit of the antichrist is
looking to camouflage what God is doing
by doing a counterfeit work.
The number eight in the Word means that God has
already spoken your new beginning that will come to
you and that could happen during this eighth month.
This new beginning has already been loosed.
In Genesis 8:12, Noah sends a dove out of the ark,
and it does not return. God was showing him that his
new beginning was just ahead of him. In v.16, this promNOON
ise was for his whole family too. God is showing you
during this eighth month the new beginning or level is
just ahead for you and that your family is included in this
blessing. In verse 5, the tops of the mountains are seen.
God will at least show you a portion of your new beginning
during this month.
In Exodus 8:22, God puts a division between his
people and the Egyptians by saying that no plague from
that point on would touch his people in Goshen. He is
telling them that this is a sign of their new beginning.
He is now separating them from the trials that would be
coming on the Egyptians. During this month, God will
be letting you know that he is now separating you from
some people who want to keep you in bondage.
In Numbers 8:14, God separates the Levites from the
rest of the people and says they shall be his. He gives
them a sign of this new beginning by having all the
children of Israel put their hands on them and pray as
recorded in verse 10. During this month, God may use
somebody to remind you of a promise he gave you or
even give you a new promise. This is to show that there
will be a new beginning in your life. Please look for it
this eighth month.
In Jeremiah 36:1–3, God gives a message of warning
through Jeremiah to the people of Israel to repent and
tells him to write it in a book. In the ninth month, Baruch,
the servant to Jeremiah, proclaims a fast and reads all the
words of the book to the people (verse 9–10). The king
of Israel hears about this. He reads some of the book
and burns it in the fire. The king gets angry and wants
to capture Jeremiah and Baruch, but the Word says that
God hides them. God really gets angry at the response of
the king of Israel to his words and pronounces judgment
on the king and the rest of the people (verse 27–31). He
tells Jeremiah to write down the message again in a book
and this time he adds to it.
This ninth month is a time of warning from God to
repent, especially to some of the leadership. His warning
cannot be overlooked or destroyed. This is a time
for God’s prophets to be more determined and obedient
than ever to deliver his messages, whether they are
received or not. The Body of Christ needs to be told
about repentance, especially during this time. This is not
the time for God’s people to look to hear about their new
car coming or new house. Those things are appropriate
in their time. This is the time to hear God’s warning
about repentance and act on his words. As usual, God
will also hide his true prophets at this time from any
138 HENRY WALKER
In Haggai 2:20–23, on the twenty-fourth day of the
ninth month, God has a similar message of repentance
and says that he is going to overthrow some of the leadership
(verse 22). God also says in verse 23 that he is
going to make Zerubbabel a signet. This is also a time
of raising some of his key people to be signets or examples
of the power that he can exhibit in and through one
This message of repentance for God’s people in this
month is repeated in Zechariah 7:1–14 on the fourth
day of the ninth month. Also, in Chapter 8:12, God pronounces
a blessing upon his remnant that they will posses
all things, also in this same month. Make sure you
are part of his remnant by allowing him to conform you
into the image of his Son. You can then start possessing
all the blessings God sends your way. Also, expect
increase in people coming to your purpose or ministry as
God promises in verses 21–23. As God promises in verse
23, expect that people will start recognizing that God is
with you and come running toward you. God also says
he will lift you up as an ensign during this same time,
but he also says in Chapter 11:8 that he will cut off three
pastors within thirty days. When God promotes, he
“puts down one and raises up another” (Psalm 75:6–7).
In Ezra 10:9, the children of Israel gather together
on the twentieth day of the ninth month and repent that
they had taken strange wives from other groups of people.
They put away all these strange wives. This is such
a great time to allow God to remove those people who
could negatively affect your walk with Jesus. (I am not
Let’s summarize the importance of specific days in
the ninth month:
1. Fourth Day and the Twenty-Fourth Day-
A period where God especially warns to
repent or face judgment, especially dealing
with some leadership. God especially
protects his prophets who have to speak
this repentance or judgment message at
2. Fourth Day and the Twenty-Fourth Day-
A period where God causes others to see
some of his remnant as signets or examples
of his power and favor. He is also putting
a blessing on his remnant to possess
3. Fourth Day- He is adding to ministries
that his hand is on.
4. Fourth Day- He is cutting off counterfeit
5. Twentieth Day- He wants to remove people
from our lives who could hinder us.
There is a general anointing on this ninth month for
God to use somebody you least expect to bless you and
also for the enemy to use somebody you least expect to
come against you.
In Genesis 9:22, Ham sees his father’s (Noah’s)
nakedness and is cursed. Noah probably does not expect
Ham, one of his sons, to do that. Japheth and Shem, his
other sons, get blessed for covering up their father (verse
26–27). God unexpectedly uses their brother’s mistake
to bless them!
In Exodus 9:16, God speaks of how he raises Pharaoh
up to show forth his power and that his name would be
declared throughout the earth. God can use somebody
you don’t expect to provoke you as they come against you,
140 HENRY WALKER
to bring you to a promise land of blessings. Because the
Pharaoh resisted God, God had to exhibit his strength
in the demonstration of his power at the Red Sea as he
helped the Israelites on their journey. God used someone
unexpectedly to show forth his power (Pharaoh). This
was an attack but also a blessing on his people.
Again, especially during this ninth month, God can
allow somebody that you least expect to come against you
or to bless you. You need to be alert for either situation.
In Jeremiah 52:4, the Word records that Nebuchadnezzar
begins to invade and besiege Jerusalem on the tenth
day of the tenth month. This time of the month is a
time where God might deal with some of his people by
having their enemies put an unusual amount of pressure
on them. They may be permitted by God to come
where they were not permitted before. This is a way of
God pouring out his judgment on some of his people
because they are not obeying him. Warn his people of
this impending judgment.
God reiterates his judgment, this time to the
Egyptians in Ezekiel 29:1–21, on the twelfth day of
the tenth month. In 33:21, God brings judgment on his
people because they set up idols (verse 25), because they
only love with their mouths and not their hearts, and
they go after their covetousness (verse 31). Again, this
is a time to warn God’s people of his possible judgment.
God also mentions that some pastors are included in
his judgment in 34:2. They are not feeding the congregations
but are more interested in feeding themselves.
He says in verse 23 that he will replace them with a
shepherd like David who will feed his people. He said
he would put shepherds over his people that will help
to develop the fruit of the Spirit in them (verse 27). So
many ministers are just taking from the people and not
giving back. They just want to preach a little sermonette
142 HENRY WALKER
on Sunday, shake their hands at the end of the service,
and collect their tithes. They just see it as a business to
take from the people. When they want more money they
bring in a heavy hitter who majors in making people cry
and raising money. Sadly, for some ministers, ministry is
just a scam to fleece people and making them smile as
they pick their pocket. These kinds of pastors are opening
themselves up to the judgment of God.
In Ezekiel 37, God shows Ezekiel the valley of dry
bones. These are the sheep that have been neglected by
his pastors. God is going to raise up pastors and prophets
to speak into their lives and they will rise up as a
great army (verse 10). He said they have no hope (verse
11–13) but that he will bring them into their purpose
(verse 14). You can see why God is bringing judgment
during this month: what kind of a father would let his
children be mistreated, taken advantage of, and walk
around aimlessly without purpose? Most earthly fathers
would not stand idly by, and neither will our heavenly
Father. They don’t realize that a true minister treats the
people that God brought to them as children of God.
True ministers allow the Father to speak through them
into the lives of his people.
God also mentions in Zechariah 8:19 that this tenth
month is also a time of great joy and feasting. For those
who want to conform to the image of Jesus above anything,
they will escape God’s judgment during this time.
For them, this is a great time to rejoice in their Father’s
approval and feast on his love.
A feast that occurs in the tenth month is the feast of
Hanukkah. Hanukkah means dedication. It is an eight
day feast that starts on the twenty fifth day of the tenth
month. In 167 BC, a Syrian king named Antiochus IV
Epiphanes attacked Jerusalem, sacked the temple, killed
thousands of Jews and outlawed Judaism. He also set on
the altar of God, the abomination of desolation, a statue
of Zeus with his own face on it. He then proclaimed
himself to be God. A family of priests, the Maccabees,
refused to worship the heathen gods. They killed some
Syrian soldiers and then fled into the mountains.
Thousands of Jews joined them. They then waged a 3
year war against Hellenism and its pagan customs. They
fought an unbeatable (in the natural) Syrian army and
won because God was on their side. They took back the
Temple of God, cleansed the altar and then cleaned up
the house of God and rededicated it on Kislev 25. They
found one flask of holy oil to re-light the Menorah. It
was only enough oil for one day, but it supernaturally
lasted for eight days, enough time to allow them to produce
more oil. The Hanukkah season is an excellent time
for us to rededicate our temples (our lives) to God.
It is also a time to celebrate the miracles that God did
for us throughout the years. Also, expect some strange
miracles during this time that really don’t make sense.
Miracles that you never expected to take place. During
this season, God can bring strange miracles into your
life that could influence the whole world. You could be
going the whole year, laboring for God, when suddenly,
here comes that strange miracle.
After the Tribulation, the Temple will be dedicated
and cleansed again, by Jesus, after the Antichrist
has polluted it. This could possibly happen during the
Hanukkah season. Again, this is a wonderful time to
come into the presence of God and allow Him to cleanse
our temples (our lives). This will allow Him to bless us
with those immense blessings that He has reserved for
us. Praise Him!
The main reason that this feast is so important is
144 HENRY WALKER
the fact that it is the one feast where Jesus reveals His
deity! In 1Kings 8, Solomon talked about building a
house for the LORD where His Name would be (verses
16, 17, 18, and 20). He prayed to the LORD that He
would put His Name there(v. 29).The LORD answered
in Chapter 9:3 that not only would He put His Name
there but His eyes and heart would be there perpetually.
In John 10:22-38, the LORD fulfilled this prophecy
when on the feast of Dedication (Hanukkah), Jesus
(Yahshua) walked into Solomon’s Temple. Yahshua has
His Father’s Name (YAH from YAHWEH) and He is
the LORD manifested in the flesh. So, Jesus’ eyes and
heart are the LORD’s. What a tremendous fulfillment
of this prophecy. The religious leaders had the nerve to
ask Jesus to show whether He was God (v. 24). Jesus
just showed who He was by fulfilling the prophecy about
the LORD’S Name, eyes and heart being in the temple,
as He is God manifested in the flesh! Jesus said to the
religious leaders that He and the Father are One (v. 30).
This also shows His divinity. The religious leaders knew
what He was saying because they immediately wanted
to stone Him (v.31). Jesus finally tried to make this fact
even clearer to them when He said that the Father is in
Him and He in the Father (v.38). This is like an iceberg;
the water of the ocean is in an iceberg and the iceberg
is in the water but the iceberg gives a form to the water.
Jesus is truly the Father manifested in the flesh and He
gives a form to the invisible LORD (1 Tim.3:16). This
feast shows how Yahweh can fulfill long-awaited prophecies
and promises as He promised Solomon many years
before, that His Name, eyes and ears would be in the
temple in Jesus!
Let’s summarize the importance of the tenth month
as a whole:
1. A time of great joy and feasting for some
of God’s people.
A summary of the importance of specific days during
the tenth month:
1. Tenth Day and Twelfth Day - A time of
great judgment by God on some of his
people because of idolatry and covetousness.
A time of judgment on some
of God’s pastors because of the mistreatment
of his children. Replacement
of the false pastors with those who have
the heart of David.
2. Twenty Fifth Day- Hanukkah is the
feast where Jesus (Yahshua) reveals His
divinity. During this feast is a great
time to rededicate our lives to Yahshua.
The Temple may possibly be cleansed
after the Tribulation on this feast. This
feast also shows how Yahweh can fulfill
long-awaited promises in our lives!
There are some truths about the number ten in the
Word that generally apply to this month. The number
ten in the Word means that in this tenth month in particular,
God wants to cut the devil off from the area of
your life that he is attacking.
This meaning of the number ten in the Word is evident
in Revelation 2:10: “You shall have tribulation ten
days.” In this scripture, God is saying that all the devil
has is ten days and then he is cut off. You need to apply
this number to your life on a frequent basis and cut the
devil off by saying the number ten to him, by faith. His
146 HENRY WALKER
power will be broken as you use the number ten with
faith. In this tenth month, whatever the devil was doing
to you is cut off. You could be delivered from that habit
that was separating you from God. You are now delivered
from those people who were interfering with your
walk with God. In 1 Samuel 17:18, Jesse tells David to
take ten cheeses and ten loaves of bread to his brothers.
When his father says this, David knows the battle was
over and that the enemy would be cut off by God. Do
you realize that God is doing the same thing to you, cutting
off the devil from that area of your life where he is
In Genesis 1:4, God mentions that he divided the
light from darkness. This is the effect of the number ten
working in your life (i.e. the darkness is separated from
your life)! In Genesis 24:22, the servant of Abraham
gives Rebekah two bracelets weighing ten shekels of
gold. This is God showing that the search for a bride for
Isaac is over and she was the one.
God also confirms this truth in Genesis 45:23 as
Joseph sends ten asses with good things for Jacob as well
as ten asses loaded with corn. This is also signifying that
the famine is over for Jacob and his family.
In Genesis 31:7, Jacob mentions that Laban changed
his wages ten times. God is speaking here that the control
that Laban had on Jacob and his wives is cut off once
and for all. This is evident when God tells Laban not to
touch Jacob in verse 24, not to harm him. He is delivered
from Laban’s dishonesty and tricks. From this time
on Jacob spoils Laban, by getting his best cattle. You
too can stop the devil from stealing your wages and get
God’s best for you by using the number ten as a mighty
weapon, especially during this tenth month!
Praise him for the number ten in your life. Be encourNOON
aged when God shows this number to you during a trial.
He is telling you that the devil is cut off from that area
of your life he is attacking.
Remember, this tenth month is not the only time
that God can cut the devil off from your life, but it is
God’s most anointed time to do so.
Shevat ( Jan.-Feb.)
In Zechariah 1:7–13, the Word of the Lord comes on
the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month and he says
that he will now extend mercy to his people that he had
to punish previously through their enemies. This is a
great promise for those who have strayed.
In 2:7–9, God says he sends deliverance and brings
restitution against our enemies as he comes on the scene
(verse 10). During this time of the month God also says
in chapter 3 that he brings an anointing to clean us up
(verse 4), crowns us with new authority (verse 5), and
brings us into purpose (verse 7). He assures during this
time also that it is only by his power that we can go into
purpose (4:6), that any mountain in our way will become
a plain (verse 7), that he is causing us to stand in our
purpose (verse 14), and that he is sending more people
to help us build (6:15). This is truly an exciting time of
In Deuteronomy 1:3–8, on the first day of the eleventh
month, Moses encourages the people to go in and
possess the land God gave them and not to be fearful
(verse 21). God encourages us the same way during this
time. He also speaks a blessing on them to multiply like
the stars of the sky (verse 10) and that God would make
them a thousand times greater than they were (verse 11).
During this time of the month God speaks the same
150 HENRY WALKER
blessings, just receive. I claim it for you now in Jesus’
Let’s summarize the importance of specific days during
the eleventh month:
1. First Day - God also encourages us to go
into and possess our purpose or inheritance
and speaks a multiplication blessing
into our lives.
2. Twenty Fourth Day - God really pours
out to his people with mercy, deliverance,
restitution against their enemies,
cleansing, new authority, bringing more
builders to help, etc.
There is a general anointing on this eleventh month
for God to confirm how close you are to your promotion,
especially if you are going through a trial. During
this eleventh month, you may feel a little nervous. God
is telling you how close you may be to your new spiritual
level. What’s happening is that your body is getting
used to the new spiritual level and you may feel a little
For example, if you were told on your job on a Friday,
that Monday you would be promoted and start a new
position, you would be all right until Sunday night. You
may start to feel a little nervous about your new duties.
This is similar to a new level or promotion. During
this month, where you are so close to starting your new
assignment for God, you may feel a little nervous even
though you have been promoted. You can’t do the assignment
A perfect example of this is 2 Chronicles 20, where
Jehoshaphat fears when he is surrounded by the enemy
(verse 3). He realizes, and you will too, that the battle is
God’s (verse 15). God is ready to promote Jehoshaphat
by wiping out his enemies and giving him their spoils
which took three days to gather (verse 22–25).
When God promotes, he does more and you do less.
At every new level, God shows us how powerful he really
is as he does so much for us and in us. He is able to do
so much in us and through us at this new level because
only he could have taken you through a trial to get you to
this point. At this stage in our walk with Jesus, we truly
decrease as he increases.
The use of the number eleven in the Word by the
Holy Spirit backs up the belief that the new level or promotion
is at hand. In Genesis chapter 45 Joseph reveals
himself to his eleven brothers and they are about to be
promoted. Because of Joseph’s position and authority in
Egypt, they and the rest of their relatives get choice land,
and are now being taken care of by Joseph. They don’t
have to be concerned about the famine any more. They
now have abundance. During this eleventh month you
are getting ready for the abundance that is at the end
of a particular trial. So as you are approaching the end
of a trial and you are feeling humbled and a little nervous,
you are at the door of your new level or promotion,
which could happen in the next month (twelfth).
In Jeremiah 52:31, the Word records that Evilmerodach,
king of Babylon, releases Jehoiachin, king of Judah, from
prison. This takes place on the twenty-fifth day of the
twelfth month. Not only does he release him, but sets
him up in his kingdom above his leaders. This enemy
king takes care of his needs the rest of his life. This is a
move of deliverance by God and should encourage anyone
who needs to be delivered from the prison they are
in. Receive your deliverance, as God’s anointing to set
you free is freely flowing, especially at this time of the
This is also a time of God’s judgment coming forth;
in Ezekiel 32:1–12, God tells the Pharaoh of Egypt on
the first day of the twelfth month that he is going to
bring destruction on him and the rest of the Egyptians.
He says that his destruction would be so fierce that other
nations will be terribly afraid for their own lives when
they see Egypt’s destruction at his hands.
God is not somebody to fool around with or someone
to lean too heavily on his grace. He is also a God of justice,
a God of vengeance, even though he is also a God
of love. He will take vengeance on our enemies if they
push him too far. They may seem to be winning and not
relenting in their attacks on you, but take strength in the
fact that God is on your side.
During this month on the fourteenth and fifteenth
154 HENRY WALKER
days, the feast of Purim occurs. Purim is a wonderful
feast that commemorates the deliverance of God’s people
from the wicked plans of Haman (Satan). God will
always be ready to deliver his people and this time of the
year is a wonderful time to claim and receive it.
Let’s summarize the importance of specific days during
the twelfth month:
1. The First Day of the month- Another
time of God’s judgment on our enemies.
2. The Fourteenth, Fifteenth and Twenty-
Fifth Day- Other times for great deliverance
The twelfth month as a whole is an excellent time
for God to complete your promotion or new level he
was preparing you for during the year but especially in
the eleventh month. He can do this at any time in the
twelfth month. Of course he can promote at any time of
the year, but there is an anointing on this month especially
to do so.
These feasts or seasons I have discussed in this book are
celebrated on the same day of the Hebrew calendar every
year, but the Hebrew year is not the same length as a
solar year on the Gregorian calendar used by most of
the western world. As a result, the dates of these seasons
change on the Gregorian calendar.
The Hebrew calendar is based on the rotation of the
Earth about its axis (a day), the revolution of the moon
about the Earth (about 29 1/2 days), and the revolution
of the Earth about the sun (about 365 1/4 days, or 12.4
lunar months). The Hebrew calendar coordinates these
three facts, and as a result, some years on the Hebrew
calendar have thirteen months, which is considered a
leap year. The Gregorian calendar does not (the length
of the months has been arbitrarily set at 28, 30, or 31
In a leap year, the thirteenth month is called Adar 2,
and the twelfth month is called Adar 1. The additional
month (Adar I) is inserted before the regular month of
Adar (which is Adar II in a leap year). In a non-leap
year, the twelfth month is called simply Adar. In certain
years, the last day of Hanukkah is Tevet 3 as opposed to
Tevet 2. Also, the feast of Purim will occur in Adar 2 in
a leap year.
My Biblical Calendar page on my Web site (www.
henrywalker.org) takes these facts into consideration.
156 HENRY WALKER
As I mentioned earlier, I have prepared the current
and future dates on both the Hebrew calendar and the
Gregorian calendar when the monthly periods begin and
end. Just click on Biblical Calendar on my website. On
the same location, I also have the future dates for the
feasts days on both calendars.
Here is the list of the Hebrew (our) months of the
year again to help you:
First Month Nisan Mar-Apr.
Second Month Iyar Apr-May
Third Month Sivan May-June
Fourth Month Tammuz June-July
Fifth Month Av July-Aug.
Sixth Month Elul Aug-Sept.
Seventh Month Tishrei Sept.-Oct.
Eight Month Cheshvan Oct.-Nov.
Ninth Month Kislev Nov.-Dec.
Tenth Month Tevet Dec.- Jan.
Eleventh Month Shevat Jan.- Feb.
Twelfth Month Adar Feb.-Mar.
*Thirteenth Month Adar 2 Mar-Apr.
* As I mentioned, only in a leap year is there a thirteenth
Note: The same dates and blessings associated with
the Twelfth Month are applicable here in this thirteenth
month. As I mentioned earlier, this month is called Adar
II in the leap years and the twelfth month is called Adar
I. In a non-leap year the twelfth month is called simply
Adar. If there is a particular day of the month (or the
month as a whole) where there is a special anointing to
bring about certain blessings, which you have learned
from reading my book you can figure which day it is on
the Gregorian calendar by going to my Biblical Calendar
page on my Web site (www.henrywalker.org). You can
then scroll to the top left and click on www.hebcal.com/
hebcal. You can also go directly to www.hebcal.com/
hebcal. Again, when you are on either website please
check off “show Hebrew date for entire date range”
under “Other Options.” Please refer to the chart on the
previous page in researching the month of interest you
desire to see from the word and go to a particular day in
that month on this Hebrew calendar. Remember that
the twenty four hour period of time which includes day
and night runs from evening to evening.
Here is an example from a previous month of March
to help you in locating a particular day on the Gregorian
calendar from a Hebrew date in the word: If you want
to see which day on the Gregorian calendar Nisan 1 falls
on you can see from this chart. Nisan 1 or the first day of
the first month of the year starts on evening March 15
and ends on evening March 16.

I pray that you enjoyed this book, and I also pray that
you have a deeper awareness of God’s special blessing
times on an hourly, daily, and monthly basis. You can
also search the Word for other periods of time such as
number of days, months, or years, and see if they are
applicable to your situation.
You may see in the Word that Joshua marched around
Jericho for seven days and the walls came down. You may
get a witness in your spirit that your Jericho will come down
in seven days. Your relatives may have had problems in the
family for forty years. You may see in the Word that the
Israelites were in the wilderness for forty years, but Joshua,
Caleb, and the children came out. You can claim that the
family wilderness is over, if God puts this in your spirit.
Not everybody can claim these time period promises unless
God speaks to their spirit. It is just a matter of one seeking
the Holy Spirit and seeing if God wants to move in these
time frames. It won’t be for everybody, but it could be a
blessing time frame for someone.
The promises mentioned in this book at hourly, daily,
and monthly time periods are available for anybody who
will seek Jesus and be prepared. I am sure your walk with
Jesus will never be the same as you prepare for these blessing
times. As I mentioned earlier, if you don’t receive the
blessing that you are expecting at a certain period of time,
maybe God is trying to make some adjustments in your
life, in order for you to receive. Just listen to the Holy Spirit
