Recently I dreamt of a woman, whose name means “holy”. She was telling me that her son, whose name was Christian, had asthma and that when he reached the 9th level of this asthma, she wouldn’t know what to do and that’s when God intervened! As she was explaining this to me, I saw the number 9 and a circle floating in front of me. Then I heard the voice of God say, and saw the words written in the sky: “Divine Reversal”.
September is the 9th month; the number 9 means completeness, the end of a cycle, and it also represents the 9 spiritual gifts. Rosh Hashanah, which is the head of the Jewish new year, falls in September. New year, new season, in the natural and in the spirit.
This is what The Biblical Meaning of Numbers from One to Forty by Dr. Stephen E. Jones says about the number 9:
Teth (9) is a snake in Hebrew. It can also signify being surrounded, for the snake was often pictured in a circle swallowing its tail. The number nine speaks of God’s “visitation.” This is a Hebraism that pictures God as an Investigator “visiting” a person, city, or nation to expose the hearts, gather evidence, and “see” firsthand, as it were, the truth of a matter. It is much like a divine court case where the evidence is uncovered and presented to the judge for justice.
As I asked God for more insight, He started speaking to me about the Divine Reversal He Is about to bring to people’s lives.
I believe The Lord is going to allow things to get worse before He’ll turn them around and reverse the situations! Some of us will feel as the breath has been knocked out of our lungs. He’s going to allow some of us to hit rock bottom, so He can uncover, expose and reveal what’s hidden in our hearts. He’s bringing things full circle in many of our lives so we can get right with Him. He’s bringing an end to this season in order to start a new one. New wine needs new wineskins. He’s going to also allow some of us to feel surrounded, encircled, and pressed by the enemy before He’s going to come in and reverse the circumstances. He’s going to deal with the enemy and the attacks on His children. He’s going to be judging from His Righteous seat and bring about Devine Reversals in many people’s lives! He’s overturning what the enemy has done! He’ll take what the enemy meant for evil and turn it for good!
You’re going to feel sicker before you’re going to get better! You’re going to feel more desperate before you’ll feel hopeful and receive the solutions to your problems. You’re going to feel abandoned before you feel loved and blessed. You’re going to have to let go of much and many. To bring about a DIVINE REVERSAL, the situation has to become humanly impossible to change! That’s how and when He shows up! Always! Always at the 11th hour! Always when you least expect it!
So don’t be discouraged and dismayed if what is happening around you is getting worse, it just means He Is about to intervene in your situation! The enemy will try to take your eyes off of Jesus to focus them instead on the circumstances! Don’t let him! He is bringing distractions! Stealing your joy, killing your future! In the fire, in the pressing, you are being transformed, you are being mantled, you are being anointed. You are being elevated in the waiting. You are being upgraded in the pushing, in the birthing! You are being made into His likeness! As your soul refuses to give up, as you worship and wait for the promises of God to come to pass in the midst of chaos, you are gradually ascending from faith to faith and glory to glory! You are conquering territory and gaining dominion, in the spiritual and in the physical world!
Just as Haman encountered the very same fate he wished on Mordecai, so will your enemy suffer the same fate they have wished upon you. And just as David recovered everything that was taken from him and his men in Ziklag, plus more; I will cause your enemy to return everything that he has taken away from you multiplied!!
So David recovered all that the Amalekites had taken and rescued his two wives. 19 Nothing of theirs was missing whether small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything that had been taken; David recovered it all.
9 Now in the twelfth month (that is, the month of Adar) on the thirteenth day when the king’s command and edict were about to be executed, on the [very] day when the enemies of the Jews had hoped to gain power over them [and slaughter them], it happened the other way around so that the Jews themselves gained power over those who hated them.
REVERSAL: a change to an opposite direction, position, or course of action.
DIVINE: of, from, or like God or a god.
My child, My child! Turn to Me! Take your eyes off of your circumstances! Keep your ears inclined to my voice! I Am Jehovah Jireh! You will never lack, you will never want, you will never be alone, for you are mine and I Am yours, no one can take you from My hands. I Am bringing Divine Reversal to your life, every aspect of your life! No stone will be left unturned! Justice shall be served! Your enemies will see you feast at My table, but they will not be able to touch you or distract you, for you will be completely covered by My wings. Wait and see the salvation of The Lord!
Exodus 14:13 NKJV
And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.
