Are numbers important to God?
If so, what difference does that make for you?
Grace by itself is amazing, but “GREAT GRACE” is incredible.
And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
And great grace was upon them all. (Acts 4:33)
On Saturday morning December 8, 2018, when I woke up to use the bathroom, I noticed “5:55” on our digital clock as I passed by.
That number jumped out at me, knowing it was a powerful sign from God. You see, I had just returned from The Awakening in Nashville, Indiana the night before after traveling on the 5th day of Hanukkah.
The Awakening was the most powerful and love-filled gathering of my entire life. All of us who came experienced an explosion of God’s love in our hearts.
We laughed, we cried, we prayed, we sang, we loved.
When I first began sending daily devotionals for Your Daily Blessing 12 years ago, I was inspired to schedule them to be sent at 5:55 am because I knew “5” represents “grace” in Biblical numerology. Therefore, by inference, “555” represents “great grace”.
Yahweh is a God of detail. Colors are important to Him. Numbers are important to Him. So are dates and many other things many people fail to notice.
There is only one place in the Bible that mentions “great grace” and that is Acts 4-31-35, which is the theme verse for our small group gatherings.
And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness. Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.
As the song “Amazing Grace” declares, grace by itself is amazing. “Great grace” is so much more amazing. And that’s what we experienced at The Awakening.
After The Awakening had officially ended, at least ten participants told me privately it was the most powerful experience of their life as tears welled up in their eyes.
I knew in advance God had called this holy assembly to release the fire of God and the roar of the Lion and that each participant would experience an explosion of God’s love in their hearts.
Our theme word was “LOVE” and our theme scripture was John 17:21.
“that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.”
Our theme song was “Let There Be Love Shared Among Us“.
SO WHAT? NOW WHAT?
“OK”, you might think, “That’s interesting, but what do I do with this new information?”
First, if you aren’t already doing so, start paying attention to numbers. When you see a number that stands out for you or occurs repeatedly, write it down and ask Yahweh what the significance of that is.
Second, watch the 7 minute Awakening video that Melodie created with photos from The Awakening and our theme song “Let there be love shared among us” and write down what stands out for you.
Third, REGISTER NOW to watch our on LIVE broadcast (Arise and Shine) on Friday December 14 at 5:55 pm Eastern to hear personal testimonies about The Awakening from several participants. Everyone who registers will receive access to the replay.
Heavenly Father, thank You for planning and orchestrating The Awakening last week. Thank You for each and every person who came and the special gifts they brought. Thank you for the explosions of love we experienced in our hearts.
Father, may You touch the hearts of each person who watches the video “Let There Be Love Shared Among Us”. Fill them to overflowing with love so that YOUR LOVE may truly sweep this nation and the nations of the world.
May the fire of God that is burning within our hearts (Luke 24:32) never be quenched. May You, the LORD God Almighty, empower the unfinished JESUS MOVEMENT.
And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:32)
In the name of Yeshua Hamashiach (Jesus the Christ) we pray believing. Amen and hallelujah!
Blessings to diligently seek and find the place of God’s great grace!
P.S. You are treasure in an earthen vessel (2 Corinthians 4:7).
