God is doing amazing things! You just passed August 8th, which is the month and day of new beginnings!

I know you’ve been through tremendous pressures, trials, temptations, difficult circumstances and economic struggles the last year and half, and it’s been a hard transitional period. But as you’ve been stepping more into your Christ-identity over this past season, the Lord has been preparing you for the release of double glory!

2 Kings 2:9 says, “And it came to pass, when they had gone over, that Elijah said to Elisha, ‘Ask what I shall do for thee, before I am taken away from thee.’ And Elisha said, ‘I pray thee let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.’ And he said, ‘Thou hast asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.’”

Here we read that Elisha asked the prophet Elijah for a double portion of the Spirit, in reference to his mantle. The Lord opened Elisha’s eyes and he witnessed Elijah go up to heaven. The word “see” is the word for vision. Elisha saw visions, chariots, horsemen. He watched the mantle fall. As soon as it fell, a double portion of that mantle glory fell upon Elisha. Powerful!

Double is what’s coming! This is a prophetic word for you right now. God is positioning you in relation to your promotion. You need to take this time to seek God and ask Him to show you things in the supernatural realm. When you ask for the glory of the Lord to be released and for amazing things to happen, you must have eyes to see into the supernatural and have these visions released to you! That only happens by preparing your heart, understanding and keeping your identity in Him and seeking His face. 

Did you know that this season is actually called Teshuvah? Teshuvah is a time of prayer, fasting, repentance and preparing our hearts for the new year 5782. Remember, whenever there has been a crushing or pulverization, His glory comes in! Praise God! He is doing a work to raise you up and promote you. God is getting ready to move in a mighty way and bring His double glory!

At Rosh Hashanah, Sept 6th, you will be stepping into the tremendous things God has for you. I’m so excited! God is properly positioning you with a knew mantle and has a big year instore for you!

Let me break down the year 5782 for you. 5 is the year of grace; 7 is the year of perfection; 8 is the year of new beginnings; and 2 means double. The Lord showed me that double glory is coming upon you in 5782!

This is news worth sharing with a friend who needs to be encouraged today! Look forward to Rosh Hashanah and the new year 5782 together! God has mighty things in store for you then!
