It is the promise that the Lord gave to Dutch Sheets – where He revealed Himself as the Everlasting God. Every promise that He has spoken to you. Every promise that He has spoken over this nation – He is going to do it. He loves us! He loves people! He loves this land! He loves this nation. How bout the generational blessing. The righteous acts of the saints throughout the generations coming together. The Lord is tipping bowls! He has faced this nation! He has heard your cries and seen your tears… The Lord has opened up the gates over America, today.” I had an open vision of the EL Olam standing on the nation of America. He had planted both of His feet. Blood Covenant Stands!!!

A Covenant with Abimelech
“And it came to pass at that time that Abimelech and Phichol, the commander of his army, spoke to Abraham, saying, “God is with you in all that you do. 23 Now therefore, swear[g] to me by God that you will not deal falsely with me, with my offspring, or with my posterity; but that according to the kindness that I have done to you, you will do to me and to the land in which you have dwelt.” 24 And Abraham said, “I will swear.” 25 Then Abraham rebuked Abimelech because of a well of water which Abimelech’s servants had seized. 26 And Abimelech said, “I do not know who has done this thing; you did not tell me, nor had I heard of it until today.” 27 So Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech, and the two of them made a [h]covenant. 28 And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves. 29 Then Abimelech asked Abraham, “What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs which you have set by themselves?” 30 And he said, “You will take these seven ewe lambs from my hand, that they may be my witness that I have dug this well.” 31 Therefore he called that place [i]Beersheba, because the two of them swore an oath there.32 Thus they made a covenant at Beersheba. So Abimelech rose with Phichol, the commander of his army, and they returned to the land of the Philistines. 33 Then Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there called on the name of the Lord, the Everlasting God. 34 And Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines many days.” (Genesis 31:22-34; NKJV)
“Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her, And there I will give her her vineyards and make the Valley of Achor[e] a door of hope. And there she shall answer as in the days of her youth, as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt. “And in that day, declares the Lord, you will call me ‘My Husband,’ and no longer will you call me ‘My Baal.’ 17 For I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth, and they shall be remembered by name no more. And I will make for them a covenant on that day with the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the creeping things of the ground. And I will abolish[f] the bow, the sword, and war from the land, and I will make you lie down in safety. 19 And I will betroth you to me forever. I will betroth you to me in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love and in mercy. I will betroth you to me in faithfulness. And you shall know the Lord. “And in that day I will answer, declares the Lord, I will answer the heavens, and they shall answer the earth, and the earth shall answer the grain, the wine, and the oil, and they shall answer Jezreel, and I will sow her for myself in the land. And I will have mercy on No Mercy, and I will say to Not My People, ‘You are my people’;and he shall say, ‘You are my God.’”

CHAPTER 2: THE POWER OF BLESSING
WHAT IS BLESSING?
Blessing is the anointing of God to release increase, prosperity, and the multiplication of all that is good and pleasant in life.
CHAPTER 3: GOD’S CYCLE OF BLESSING
God’s blessings come to us when we are linked into His cycles of life.
Cycle: a cycle is something that rotates or moves in a sequence, sometime repetitively, and leads us to a destination.
God’s cycles of life are like a spiral track. His cycles are designed to take us from a lower level in our spiritual walk to a higher level of effectiveness and wisdom. When entering into God’s cycles, we find ourselves going around and around, repeating the same process over and over again.
The purpose of this is not to create meaningless rituals, but to produce change and bring us to the higher level of blessings. God uses many cycles of blessing to bring us into new levels of His blessing and provision.
THE CYCLE 0F SOWING AND REAPING
1. A set of actions you repeat over and over again
2. You sow, tend your crops, and harvest….Repeat!
3. Sowing in good soil always leads to reaping more than you sowed.
4. The result—Multiplication and Increase
THE CYCLE OF VICTORY: Jericho
“God wants to lock you into cycles of blessing, growth, and increase. He has a cycle of victory for you today. God’s desire is for you to break out of every cycle of destruction and into His cycle of blessing.
THREE CYCLES OF BLESSING: Weekly Shabbat, Monthly First Fruit: Rosh Chodesh, Yearly Cycles of Life
Three Cycles of Blessing God introduced three very important cycles for His people in the Bible, which were DESIGNED TO break the power of the enemy and draw them closer to God with an ever-increasing revelation of His blessing.
First He instituted a weekly SHABBAT CYCLE at the creation of the world. His design was that man was to work diligently for six days and then take the seventh day as a Sabbath day of rest.
Shabbat, as Sabbath was called in the Hebrew language, was to be a special day, set apart to rest, to enjoy God’s goodness and blessing while meditating on the glories of the heavens and earth. He promised great blessing to those who keep His Shabbat as a holy day just as the Lord rested on that first Sabbath after creation.
Next, God designated a monthly “firstfruits” cycle marked by a celebration the Jews call Rosh Chodesh. This important celebration is clearly taught in the Bible and yet is rarely celebrated by most Christians. In fact, many Christians have never even heard of a “firstfruits” celebration.
“Finally, He ordained a yearly cycle of life, marked by a series of “feasts” or “appointed times.” These were designed to take us through key steps to deepen our walk with the Lord and release the power of God by experiencing the blessings of the Feasts of Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles.
God’s yearly cycle also includes an understanding of the various seasons and months of the year. Understanding these cycles is the starting point for a life of blessing.
Shabbat: Blessing in the Midst of the Battle!
“Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it… There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest.” (Hebrews 4)
God knew we were going to be engaged in battles against powers and principalities—against dark forces of evil in the world. Warfare can be intense. On the battlefield we must always be alert, be diligent, and press on through to victory. Therefore, whether on a real physical battlefield of war or simply in the day-to-day struggles of life; He wants us to know there is rest.
He is calling us to rest. God’s primary provision for rest is called Shabbat.
Some denominations teach that in Christ, we have already entered into God’s rest and, therefore, don’t need to observe Shabbat. I would agree that resting in the finished work of Christ is a wonderful thing. One of life’s greatest blessings is to discover that Jesus has truly won the victory, and I only need to trust Him. Every believer needs to enter that type of “rest” in Him. However, even if I understand all that Jesus did for me and experience His “rest” spiritually, I still can become physically and emotionally exhausted. God is not just concerned with us spiritually.
He wants to bless us in every area of life. He wants us to enter His rest, not just in a “spiritual” or “theological” sense, but in a way that we can experience His presence and joy every week.
Therefore, God has designated times for you, individually and as a family, to rest and be restored. These are times set aside for you to savor His goodness and gain the strength to press on through the obstacles to pursue your destiny.
God wants you to take time to stop and remember that He is good.
Rest is God’s Will Rest is part of God’s will for us. He could have designed our bodies to go 24/ 7 or given us eyes like a cat to see in the dark so we could work without stopping. But that wasn’t God’s will. His plan was that we would take time to rest every day. He designed our bodies to shut down and cease activity several hours a day. This is not wasted time. God prepared a time of daily rest to recharge our bodies in order to maintain the strength and stamina we need to go about our daily lives and fulfill His purposes.
“An archer depends on the strength of his bow. But if he keeps his bow strung all the time, the constant pressure weakens the bow’s flexibility and power. To keep a bow strong, the archer must unstring the bow for a period of time to rest.
That’s how God designed mankind. Like an archer, you need to schedule times to unstring your bow! Rest is a blessing of God.
Psalm 127: 2 in The Amplified Bible says, “It is vain for you to rise up early, to take rest late, to eat the bread of [anxious] toil–for he gives [blessings] to his beloved in sleep.”
That verse doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get up early or that you will never stay up late to finish a project. At times you may be required to work some long hours. However, the verse does acknowledge that if you constantly push yourself beyond God’s boundaries for your life, you will miss a blessing.
THE BLESSINGS OF REST
Rest is designed to bless us on many levels:
Rest brings physical refreshment.
Rest brings physical healing and restoration.
Rest brings mental creativity. Many times when you are wrestling with a problem, after a good night’s sleep, the answer suddenly surfaces. There is a kind of thinking your mind does in sleep that can’t be done while you are awake.
Rest brings revelation from God, oftentimes in dreams.
So rest is to be an oasis on your journey. If you take time to rest, you will be happier, stronger, more prosperous, and live longer.
HOW DO WE FIND REST?
Many of us are a people who find no rest, and the Bible describes that as a curse. One writer describes life without rest this way: “The more our life speeds up, the more we feel weary, overwhelmed, and lost. Work always expands to fill the hours available in a day unless we designate a time for rest. We need to understand rest originated as a gift of God, but we have a choice whether to receive this gift.”
The Bible describes two kinds of rest: Sabbath Rest and Dominion Rest.
SABBATH REST is a time of rest that is a regularly repeated time when you cease from normal work and experience physical, mental, and emotional respite.
During this time, pressures and responsibilities are to be lifted so that you are free to simply enjoy God’s goodness. God designed us to have nightly sleep, but He also designed us to have a weekly rest. As a gift given by God at creation that was woven into the fabric of the universe, one of the first expressions of God’s will was to rest one day out of seven.
This concept of rest is so important to God that He included the weekly Sabbath in the 10 commandments.
Have you ever considered that failing to keep the Sabbath is as much a violation of God’s will as killing, stealing, or committing adultery? By the time of the New Testament, the Pharisees had turned what was meant to be a blessing into a religious burden to be lived under rigid rules. They stood around with their clipboards, judging everybody to make sure they were observing Sabbath correctly.
The New Testament teaching on Sabbath is found in Col. 2: 16, “Do not let anyone judge you… in regard to Sabbath.” In other words, don’t be judgmental in your observance of Sabbath or regarding how others carry out their observance. The goal of the New Testament teaching is to restore Sabbath to its original covenantal purpose: To be a blessing from God. There may be times when you have to work on a Sabbath.
The Bible says that if your ox falls into a ditch, pull it out even on Sabbath. People may need your help on the Sabbath. That’s why Jesus healed on the Sabbath. You won’t go to hell if you work on a Sabbath. However, if you continually miss your Sabbaths, you are missing a blessing. You lose your joy! You lose creativity! You lose strength! Many Christians think Sabbath is a time to be boring and religious by fasting, being miserable, weeping and repenting. But that’s not a biblical picture of Sabbath. Interestingly enough, in the days of the Early Church, fasting was not permitted on the Sabbath.
The essence of Sabbath is this: If God created the universe in six days; He is strong enough to handle your responsibilities for one day while you rest and enjoy His blessing. When is Sabbath? God just says, “Work six days, and rest the seventh.” If you start work on Monday and work six days, then your seventh day is Sunday. But I think we miss God’s heart if we try to legislate which day to celebrate. God is not nearly as concerned about which day, as long as we take one.
The goal is to enjoy spending time with Him.
Why Do We Observe a Sabbath?”
God commanded it! 1. Sabbath is an act of worship, a way of acknowledging His greatness as Creator.
2. Sabbath is a picture of salvation.
3. Sabbath is a time to rest from our works and receive His blessings as a gift.
4. Sabbath is picture of heaven, anticipating the day when we will rest from our works and enjoy Him forever.
5. Sabbath is designed to restore us and give us strength for the battles ahead.
Chuck Pierce describes Sabbath this way: “Shabbat is in the heart of God’s covenant plan. As we enter in by faith and experience a day of material and spiritual delight, the desires of our hearts are purified, and we can savor being in His presence. Shabbat is a time to ‘be still and know’ in order to triumph over our enemies. This day provides a time to let a new dimension of faith rise in our midst so we can praise God in every circumstance.”
What Can We Do on a Sabbath?
There is no religious protocol to follow. The Bible just says, “Do no regular work.”
The goal is to enjoy God and his blessings.
One writer describes Sabbath activity this way: “Sabbath is a time consecrated to enjoy and celebrate what is beautiful and good—time to light candles, sing songs, worship, tell stories, bless our children and loved ones, give thanks, share meals, nap, walk, and even make love. It is a time to be nourished and refreshed as we let our work, our chores and our important projects lie fallow, trusting that there are larger forces at work taking care of the world when we are at rest.”
God says, one day in seven, take a break from the things you do to earn your living, and plan a day to enjoy God and the blessings he has given you. If you aren’t sure what to do on Sabbath, ask Jesus! He is the “Lord of the Sabbath.” (Mark 2: 28)
Sabbath is not just a way to rest our bodies. Sabbath also has spiritual benefit. When we enjoy Sabbath in the physical realm, we learn to cease from our labors and commune with Him in every area of life. We find an abiding place of faith where we come to trust in His goodness. God wants us to continually experience and walk in Sabbath Rest.
