My prayer is that as you continue reading the words of this article you will discover truth and begin to walk in the favor of God.
Here’s a brief explanation of the number 70 or ayin’s symbolic meaning. There was much emphasis at the beginning of this decade (5770′s or 2010′s) on the cultivation of prophetic insight. Ayin “70″, the symbol above this paragraph, is described as having two eyes, and possesses the meaning that sets the stage for the next 10 years. The entire decade from 2010 to 2019 (the year’s 5770 to 5779) is dominated by the significance of the last two digits – all “70′s” the entire way thru (5770, 5771, 5772, 5773, 5774, 5775 etc.) 70 is the Hebrew word “AYIN.” “Ayin” is a word describing an eye…or insight or seeing, or perceiving with God’s perspective. The word “ayin” means – eye; to see, and by extension, to understand and obey. It also means “Divine Providence”. It is a word for God’s wisdom. Also used by some writers to describe a “fountain”…as in a fountain of wisdom. Every decade has a predominant theme. 2011 is known as ayin aleph, 2012 as ayin bet, 2013 as ayin gimel and so forth. Ayin is a silent letter. (No translation of it in English) It sees, but does not speak; representing humility. The Hebrew alphabet doubles as numbers giving each character a numerical value. Since each Hebrew character possesses a pictorial meaning as well, there are layers of richness to each letter or number. Pictorial dates tell a story, revealing the Creator’s design for that particular year.
For clarification purposes I will explain the prophetic significance of 2013 before I go into 2014. 2013 was the Hebrew year 5773, which was known as “Ayin Gimel”. The number “3″ in the aleph-bet, ‘gimel’, is symbolic of the camel. Gimel’s pictograph depicts a walking camel’s head, neck and forelegs. Hence, 2013/5773 was bears the name, the year of the camel. Camels are burden-bearing beasts employed by kings of old. Unusually tolerant of heat, long periods of time can pass between waterings, making the camel the desert-traveler’s choice of transportation. Camels are the desert ships of kings and their riches. In 2 Chronicles 9:1, the Queen of Sheba brought Solomon gold, gems and spices on a caravan of camels. Eliezer brought the bride, Rebecca, home to Isaac on a caravan of camels. Kings and wealthy businessmen used camels to transport goods along trade routes. Sundown on September 16, 2012 to sundown September 4, marked the Year of the Camel. Symbolically, Ayin gimel (5773/2013) illustrated the Father’s ability to provide for His children, even in a barren wasteland. In other words, 2013 was the year of divine provision. However, each new Hebraic year combines with the years before.
According to rabbinical interpretation, “Ayin Dalet” is the year 5774 (or our year 2014) which began on September 2013 to September 2014. “Ayin dalet” means “74″ in Hebrew – ayin meaning 70 and dalet, 4. ‘Ayin’ is the 16th letter of the Hebrew alphabet/starglyphs, which has the numeric value of 70. Dalet, the symbol above this paragraph, is the 4th letter of the Hebrew alphabet/starglyphs, which has the numeric value of 4. 70+4=74. Within all the numbers we see many hidden prophetic messages that will be played out over the next 12 months. ‘Dalet’ actually bears much spiritual significance for the year 2014. Remember, the Hebrew alphabet doubles as numbers giving each character a numerical value. Since each Hebrew character possesses a pictorial meaning as well, there are layers of richness to each letter/number. Dates also paint a picture, revealing the Creator’s design for that particular year.
Literally, the word “Dalet” means door. It can be the door to a house door or to a tent. Dalet is the picture of a hanging tent door. The door, dalet, also can mean the movement of one coming from or going into the tent. Spiritually, the meaning of Dalet a season of opportunities, a door that is open for us to pass through so that you can be transported from a season in which you may have been going through to a new season, with victory and abundance. We move forward to achieve God’s purpose in our lives. When we go through the door that has been opened, we move from our current state to enter into a new state that is different. We move further forward to achieve new things together with God towards our “divine purpose (divine destiny)”. During ‘dalet’, one will either move (1) out of or (2) back into their tent. Hence 5774/2014 bears the name, the year of the open door. Will you choose to vacate places of confinement or will you choose to retreat into the tent of isolation? Perhaps you are as Abram in Genesis 15 who lamented to God, “You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir.” Fruitless and frustrated, Abram was about to give up hope on ever obtaining the promise. In response to Abram’s cry, God took him outside of his tent to view the stars in the Heavens. He showed him the world of possibilities that existed outside of his tent door. That same kind of blessings awaits you if you are willing to step outside of your place of comfort.
Psalm 66 is a picture of going through Dalet: “Oh, bless our God, you peoples! And make the voice of His praise to be heard, who keeps our soul among the living, and does not allow our feet to be moved. For you, O God, have tested us; you have refined us as silver is refined. You brought us into the net; you laid affliction on our backs. You have caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water; but You brought us out to rich fulfillment.” (Psalm 66:8-12). Doors will open this year as you are willing to walk through them. What has evaded you for many years will come into your field of view beckoning for your involvement. Responsibility is shifting into your hands, forcing and God is daring you to step into your destiny. The questions are “Are you willing to take the step of faith?” “Are you willing to trust God in the midst of your circumstances?” “Can you survive outside your tent of limitation?”
Just to recap let me say this. The New Year does not negate the prophetic meaning connected to the previous year, but rather each year builds upon the former. 2011 was “Ayin Aleph” (Aleph = Ox) Christ was the strong Ox of heaven that shed His blood to replace our yoke of bondage with His yoke of grace. Emphasis shifted to bringing a new generation into the freedom of Christ. New grace and strength is available at the throne of grace to prepare you for divine service. 2012 was “Ayin Bet” (Bet = House) as God began moving in our families and dwellings and in local gatherings in a new way. God is building His house and is restoring what belongs to Him. The borders and boundaries surrounding what belongs to you are being restored and strengthened.
2013 was Ayin Gimel (Gimel = Camel) as divine provision has been coming to you. This alignment with provision brings a full restoration of your boundaries and inheritance. Began last year and happening throughout this next year. Divine favor, connections, ideas, and resources have already been provided. Those divine connections will carry the new networking capacity that will catapult and transition you into the place God has prepare for you. God will cause the errors of the past season to serve His purpose and will redeem the time that you thought you lost. Every negative and unkind word spoken against you will fall to the ground. “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me, Says the Lord” (Isaiah 54:17).
Now we are in 2014, “Ayin Dalet” (Dalet = Door); it is the year of the open door. It is without question that God seeking to shower you with blessings from above. It is a year of opportunity for God’s people. It is a year to LEAP FORWARD into the plan and purpose of God for your life. However, the blessing of the open door is not for every, and anyone. It is for those who walk in relationship and in covenant with the God of heaven. In other words, this blessing of the open door is a covenant blessing, for a covenant people. Scripture is replete with covenant promises. The Psalm says, “No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Ps. 84:11b). Isaiah 1:18 echoes the same narrative, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land”. The Covenant chapter Deuteronomy 28:1-2 says, ““Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God”. In other words, the blessings of God will aggressively pursue after you and will consume your life. NEW DOORS ARE OPENING NOW! WALK THROUGH IT.
