Kislev is represented by the Hebrew letter Samekh which means “security” and “trust” this month is a time to review your support system. Who are you supporting and who is supporting you. Consider who your friends and associates are and why you are connected with them. Examining our heart motives during Kislev will help us to break out of the old patterns of mistrust that have hindered out walk with the Lord and those around us. As we break out of the old patterns of mistrust, we will be able to enter into a new level of trust and security.
Last month we came through the flood, now this is the month of the rainbow. Examine what you have warred through last year to come into a place of peace. God makes a covenant with us so that we will not have to war with those things again, which was the symbolism of the rainbow. It was like God saying “you have come through the flood and it did not overtake you. Now I will make a covenant that you will not have to war with that again.”
Even in the midst of warfare you will have peace, it’s when we get tangled up and we get out of our abiding place that we get into trouble. This month is a time to let the river of God flow from your innermost being. If we don’t relate to our inner being correctly, we cannot enter into fullness. When your river starts flowing you can enter into your next measure. That is the principle of Ezekiel 47. The water started out ankle deep, then knee deep, then waist deep, until it’s over our heads. Decree that the living waters begin to spring up and out of you this month!
Kislev is linked with Benjamin who was the only child born in the land of promise - so this is an important month to watch Israel. Benjamin was also the tribe who was most gifted in the art of the bow. This month is a time to fight against empires and cultures. As you develop your war strategies this month, press in so you can prophetically gain revelation concerning the war ahead! One of the responsibilities of the tribe of Benjamin was to defend the Holy Things from the Tabernacle in war. We need to defend the faith, and honor the Holy, or it will be lost in battle.
