“The lion has roared; who is not afraid? The Eternal Lord has been heard; His prophets can’t help but prophesy.” —The Voice (VOICE)
“Pey” is the seventeenth letter of the Aleph-Bet and has a gematria 80. It’s a picture symbol of a mouth. It rhymes with “pay”. It means “mouth” and by extension, “word,” “expression,” “vocalization,” “speech,” and “breath.” Our mouth is the way we use to speak, and the entire purpose of speaking is to communicate with another individual and to decree the Word of the Lord. That ability to communicate is the essential aspect of eighty’s special strength. Decrees are declarations or pronouncements. God has given us the ability to decree His Word and it will be established. He has also instructed us that he will not one word fall to the ground (1 Sam. 3:19).
Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.Job 22:28 KJV
Discerning when to speak and when to be quiet will be crucial during the next decade if we are to see the Kingdom of God expand in our lives through our declarations of faith.
When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, but he who restrains his lips is wise.Proverbs 10:19, NASB
He who restrains his words has knowledge, And he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.Proverbs 17:27
Since ‘pey’ (mouth) follows ‘ayin (eye), some Jewish mystics have maintained that though the ‘ayin is the gateway to reality, the mouth is what brings reality into being.
Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen.Hebrews 11:1 TPT
This new year will be a time when true worshipers will begin to “worship Him in spirit and truth,” continually offering up a sacrifice of praise to God in these critical times (John 4:24; Heb. 13:15) . We will be satisfied with by the fruit of our mouths, the work of our hands will be rewarded (Prov.12:14).
A time to widen your mouth in prayer, decreeing the Word of the Lord and worshipping Him in “spirit and truth.” Continue decreeing the Word of the Lord over your families, your neighbors, your church, and our nation. The Lord has been expanding our vision to see beyond the natural circumstances into the reality of the future.
Life and death are in the power of the tongue (Prov. 18:21). Ask the Lord to set a guard over your mouth and keep watch over the door of your lips (Ps. 141:3).
As I continue to seek the Lord, I will share more of what I’m sensing as well as what others are saying during this crucial time for the church.
I may not understand everything, but each year I press in for more! I truly pray this will be a life-altering spiritual transformation within you as you gain a greater perspective on the loving ways of an all-powerful, all-knowing Father!
