Battling injustice? Get my free Prayer to Reverse Unjust Situations here! From the archives: I first wrote about the anointing of the sons of Issachar several years ago. It has become more important than ever since that time. We are in a season of many divine realignments. Did you know that, in the Bible, there was a unique group of people that always knew what to do and when to do it? A group of folks that had such perception and wisdom that a whole nation followed them and waited for their example?

It's true. They were called the sons of Issachar, and they were one of the twelve tribes of Israel. Not only that, but the sons of Issachar also excelled in knowledge of God's law. They were full of wisdom. In fact, God chose the sons of Issachar as one of the three tribes to go out in front of Israel whenever the nation moved. Judah the praising people went first; then Issachar the wise and discerning ones and Zebulun the financiers.

That's quite a combination! The sons of Issachar were so sharp, and so spiritually astute, that the whole nation depended on them to know what they ought to do and when they ought to do it. If you're a geek like me, you can read some fascinating descriptions of the sons of Issachar from Matthew Henry's Commentary and Adam Clark's Commentary at the bottom of this post.

In the times when Israel was governed by judges, before it had kings around BC or earlier according to some scholars , a woman rose up to judge the land. Her name was Deborah. Although women did have rights in Israel, it would still have been unusual for a woman to sit in authority over the nation. Nevertheless, God was with Deborah.

He placed her in authority, and the sons of Issachar knew it. Therefore, they sided with Deborah and went out to battle under her leadership. Pretty gutsy move! Why did they do it? Because they could discern the times and seasons, and they knew God's hand was on her and it was her time to rule. They gained a great victory and freed the land from foreign rule as a result.

Read Judges chapter 5 for more. Before King David—the 2nd king of Israel—began to reign, warriors from the 12 tribes started gathering to him.

All the tribes were split in their support of David except for one tribe. The tribe of Issachar was united in their support of David, according to the passage quoted above from 1 Chronicles Why did all Issachar support David? Because they knew that God had called him to become king, and they knew that his time had come. They could discern the changing of the times. It worked out well, too. David became the next king, and remains the most famous king of Israel in all history to this day.

I first heard about the sons of Issachar about ten years ago, and I began praying for their ability a. I can't tell you how many times since then God has allowed me to discern times and seasons. There have been a number of times when I've felt the spiritual season shift—and I don't mean slowly over time, either. On May 25, , I walked back into my house after the tattoo convention , and standing in my kitchen I felt the seasons change.

The events that followed proved that, sure enough, it was a new season. It contained a dramatic move of God in ways I haven't talked about yet publicly.

That new season was shorter than I expected it to be. After a few weeks, I started seeing the numbers everywhere.

The number 11 means prophetic or a transition, and doubled numbers mean God's established event. When I started seeing , God told me the season had changed again… and again, the events that have occurred in the last week have heralded the start of a new season. God has answered my prayer over and over by allowing me to discern times and seasons. Have I reached perfection in this area? Know that, in Christ Jesus, all the blessings God gave Abraham and his descendants, the Jews also belong to you.

Because we are adopted into God's family through Christ, we are entitled to all the blessings of Abraham. So now that you know you can have whatever God gave the Jews, you have only to…. Ask God for the anointing of the sons of Issachar. Ask Him to give you the ability to discern the times and seasons and always know what to do.

It appears that in their wisdom, experience, and skill, their brethren had the fullest confidence; and nothing was done but by their direction and advice. Matthew Henry's Commentary says this about the sons of Issachar:. Or, rather, the political times; they understood public affairs, the temper of the nation, and the tendencies of the present events. Those of that tribe were greatly intent on public affairs, had good intelligence from abroad and made a good use of it.

In this critical juncture they knew Israel ought to make David king. It was not only expedient, but necessary; the present posture of affairs called for it. The men of Issachar dealt mostly in country business, and did not much intermeddle in public affairs, which gave them an opportunity of observing others and conversing with themselves. A stander-by sees sometimes more than a gamester. They knew how to rule, and the rest knew how to obey.

I love prophecy, but I love history even more. Since I came to the Lord by a supernatural experience, I immediately became deeply interested in the supernatural which I had not even believed in before. I love supernatural prophetic experiences and the prophetic gifts of the Spirit. I like eschatology, the study of the prophecies of the end of this age in Scripture, but it is more of a peripheral interest than a passion, even though that is what I get questioned about the most now it seems. When I was a new believer, a copy of The Late Great Planet Earth by Hal Lindsey was given to me, and it did stir in me an infatuation with eschatology for several years. I confess to appreciating the Left Behind series for the same reason.


Release of the Issachar Anointing

God spoke to me when I was recently in Manhattan, New York with a company of prophets. As I was releasing the Word of the Lord in the Big Apple, the Lord showed me that there is a remnant of prophets and prophetic intercessors arising that will carry the prophetic forecast of what He is doing now and next for the body of Christ. These prophetic vessels will understand the times and seasons they are in and know what to do in seasons of opportunities. In addition, these prophets will understand the kairos seasons of God and will be able to properly foretell and forth-tell the prophetic timetable of God for man to possess the promises of the Lord for your life and those you are called to bless. The Lord revealed to me in prayer that the prophetic intercessors will be used tremendously to detect, monitor and stand in the gap for believers to receive their just due reward. The prophets will be able to prophesy and proclaim what I call a "God season. He replied that they are the Issachar prophets and intercessors who will possess supernatural intelligence by the Holy Spirit to position the body of Christ for glory, seasons of favor and revival.
