“The Doubling Mandate in 2016/2017 is Accelerating Through the Door of Hanukkah”

“The Doubling Mandate in 2016/2017 is Accelerating Through the Door of Hanukkah”

The Lord has previously spoken to me of the year 2016/2017 is a Double-Double Year. For the past week the Lord has been speaking to me of the significance of Christmas and the 1st day of Hanukkah being on the same day this year of 2016. 

As I waited on the Lord to reveal more, in the vision, I saw a door opening in the realm of the Spirit. The door had steps within it, and I saw that there were 8 steps going upwards within the door to another place. The door opens in the realm of the Spirit on Christmas day and the 8 steps are the 8 days of Hanukkah this year. 

There is a fresh invitation being given to the Lords people to enter into new things on Christmas/Hanukkah, and to step upwards over the 8 days into a whole new realm/reality within Him. There is a great expansion of the revelation of Him that is available in this Season, that is going to release great light into the earth through those who will ascend and meet with Him. 

There is also a deep rededication occurring right now within all who will fully surrender to Him in the process of transformation. The Lord is not only laying a new foundation, and revealing new spiritual truths, He is establishing His Habitation wherever His People will allow Him to make them into His Image and Likeness in the earth. He will only dwell in that which looks like Him, and is fully given to Him. He is going to be the Head of His House. 

Some will enter in this winter and will ascend into the fullness of the expressions of the Lord that are awaiting them. Some will not yield to this invitation, so they will remain on the level that they currently are on. Some will harden, and turn back and will mock and persecute that which is about to emerge and greatly shine. Even some of Jesus own disciples turned and left the Lord and no longer followed Him when it was important to stay near to Him even when they did not understand the future. 

This is a Holy Season, and the Wise are going to step into a new “Double-Double” Door in this winter, and those that do, will also bear an accelerated and magnified manifestation of the Lord in their walks due to their obedience to seek Him and receive that which He has for them.

2 Kings 2: 8 And Elijah took his mantle and rolled it up and struck the waters, and they divided this way and that, so that the two of them went over on dry ground. 9 And when they had gone over, Elijah said to Elisha, Ask what I shall do for you before I am taken from you. And Elisha said, I pray you, let a double portion of your spirit be upon me. 10 He said, You have asked a hard thing. However, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you—but if not, it shall not be so. 11 As they still went on and talked, behold, a chariot of fire and horses of fire parted the two of them, and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. 12 And Elisha saw it and he cried, My father, my father! The chariot of Israel and its horsemen! And he saw him no more. And he took hold of his own clothes and tore them in two pieces. 13 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan. 14 And he took the mantle that fell from Elijah and struck the waters and said, Where is the Lord, the God of Elijah? And when he had struck the waters, they parted this way and that, and Elisha went over.
** Now its not just seeing others ascend and go up so we can also receive, but we ourselves shall go up and shall receive/become the doubling in this Season…

I was also led to the following scripture on the Door of Hanukkah, and I researched it in several translations:

John 10:22-23Tree of Life Version (TLV)      Some Despise the Light and Harden
22 Then came Hanukkah;[a] it was winter in Jerusalem. 23 Yeshua was walking in the Temple around Solomon’s Colonnade.

John 10:22-23Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
22 After this the Feast of Dedication [of the reconsecration of the temple] was taking place at Jerusalem. It was winter,

John 10:22-23The Voice (VOICE)
22-23 It was winter and time for the Festival of Dedication.[a] While in Jerusalem, Jesus was walking through the temple in an area known as Solomon’s porch,

John 10:22-23Expanded Bible (EXB)      Jesus Is Rejected
22 The time came for the ·Feast of Dedication [Calso called Hanukkah or the Feast of Lights, recalling the rededication of the Temple in 164 bc] at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was walking in the Temple in Solomon’s ·Porch [Portico; Colonnade; Con the eastern side of the Temple area; at a later time Christians gathered there to worship; Acts 3:115:12].

Other scriptures on the theme of eight days and dedication to God, and/or transformation and a new manifestation:

2 Chronicles 7:8 At that time Solomon held the feast for seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly, from the entrance of Hamath to the Brook of Egypt. The eighth day they made a solemn assembly, for they had kept the dedication of the altar and the feast, each for seven days.

Luke 2:21 And at the end of eight days, when [the Baby] was to be circumcised, He was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb. 22 And when the time for their purification [the mother’s purification and the Baby’s dedication] came according to the Law of Moses, they brought Him up to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord—

Luke 9:28 Now about eight days after these teachings, Jesus took with Him Peter and John and James and went up on the mountain to pray. 29 And as He was praying, the appearance of His countenance became altered (different), and His raiment became dazzling white [[a]flashing with the brilliance of lightning].

John 20:25 Eight days later His disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, though they were behind closed doors, and stood among them and said, Peace to you! 27 Then He said to Thomas, Reach out your finger here, and see My hands; and put out your hand and place [it] in My side. Do not be faithless and incredulous, but [stop your unbelief and] believe!

Let us ascend up the Hill of the Lord, and meet with Him!

Let us become like Him, and shine with the knowledge of Him, emanating from within!
