We have just entered into the ninth Biblical month of Kislev.
Kislev means “trust, hope, and security.” God is reminding us that these things are found only in Himself.
We have a choice to trust God. In fact, He desires for us to trust Him in every area of our lives. How do we do that? Just by knowing how much He loves us.
Trust begins by knowing Him. When we know his character, when we know that we are loved by Him, and when we know He is for us then we are able to trust wholeheartedly.
He gives us hope and security, but it only begins when we trust and believe in Him.
Ask the Lord for a fresh revelation of His love and renewed strength to trust in Him as we learn about this new month together.

There’s an old cliché: “Don’t take Christ out of Christmas.” I’ve been studying the word Christ this season and found that it is mentioned 555 times in the Bible. Five is the number of grace; triple five denotes the grace to overcome. Christ comes from the Greek word Chrístos, which means “anointed one.”
Did you realize there were 5 ingredients in the anointing oil? Five animals that Abraham sacrificed when God made a covenant with him? David chose 5 smooth stones when he killed Goliath. When the Isrealites were called out of Egypt, they were called to walk out in groups of 5. Finally, there were 5 wounds of Christ on the cross.
During this season, I pray we will truly keep Christ in Christmas and realize there is power available to overcome any enemy or obstacle we may face. I’m praying that we receive power to overcome in every area of our lives, live in victory, and enjoy the anointing of Christ.

Project 58 is based on the scripture Isaiah 58: 7-10, which commands we share our food with the hungry and provide shelter and clothing for the poor and needy. At Project 58 (P58) we strive to live this out in part through our partnership with Operation Blessing and the local community through our food distribution program. Additionally, with your donations of clothing to Esther House and donations of hygiene products to Project 58, we will strive to meet a broader set of needs.
We encourage individuals to donate $40 towards a pallet of food which includes a minimum of fifteen cases.
These donations are typically picked-up by the donor. Clients use part or all of the pallet to help extend their personal food pantry, or to share with family members or other food pantries. Other clients opt to leave their pallet at P58 for distribution to individuals who walk in presenting a need.
When someone comes to P58 identifying that they have a need, the only questions we ask are how many people are in the household. We do not ask for identification and only gather additional information so that we might pray for the family or direct them to other resources in the area.
In addition to food, when available, we also offer adult diapers, Depends, feminine hygiene products, children’s diapers and pull-ups at no cost. This is all a part of the Operation Blessing Truck load we purchase monthly. We never know exactly what we are getting from Operation Blessing until the truck arrives.
We minister to and share available resources with a wide variety of people, freely sharing with families struggling in the current economy, individuals going through recovery, graduates from recovery and homeless individuals. Additionally, we share our excess with 2-3 churches that do a local distribution in their area, and we make a sizable monthly donation of food to the inmates of Calhoun County Jail.
We encourage volunteers to participate on the days we set up pallets, and when clients pick up the pallets by loading the client’s vehicles and praying for the needs that are presented.
You can be the difference. Give to help transform lives.
Your gift of funds, time and prayers all make an impact. Donations can be made to P58 by selecting “Pray Fast Give” online at: Give Now – Word Alive International Outreach
October 25 marked the beginning of the Biblical month of Cheshvan. Cheshvan is the 8th month of the Biblical calendar. The number 8 represents new beginnings, which has given Cheshvan the same name: “Month of New Beginnings.”
During this month in Biblical history, the flood and Noah’s ark occurred. This is significant as it offers a clear example of God creating a new beginning. Noah’s name means “rest.” However, he was called to be fruitful and multiply in order to repopulate the land after the flood.
What does this mean for us? Like Noah, the lord is calling us to rise up and release his abundant provision in this season. First, by resting in Jesus and His abundance in our lives, and then rising up, going forth and releasing it.
May God bring your fresh revelation during this time as we learn together the significance of this new Biblical month!
