A Clarion Call: Begin The Work! – A Word by Marelinke van der Riet

In Haggai 1:15 (AMP), we read that the resumption of the work on the second temple began on 21 September, 520 B.C. It’s no coincidence that the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, will be celebrated on 18-20 September this year, and then the work will begin again on 21 September (21 hinting also to 2021). This is a clarion call for the work to begin, and for some, to resume the work.

Clarion call: “a [strong] public request for people to take action; an appeal, summons, or entreaty.” (Macmillan Dictionary and Thesaurus)

On 18-20 September, 2020, we will be entering the Jewish new year, 5781. As I was asking the Lord about this new year, He took me to Psalm 119:81 and drew my attention to the heading. Verse 81 is under the heading/headline of “kaf.” I believe that this is also the HEADING for this new year. (“Kaf” has a numerical value of 20, and the new year also takes place on 20 September 2020.) The Hebrew word “kaf” (כ) means “palm of hand”, as in the work of your hands. It symbolises productive labor. We are HEADING for a harvest and it will be written in the HEADLINES, just as “kaf” is written in the headlines over 81.

I kept hearing, “LAUNCH THE LABORERS!” The work must begin! (8 and 1 both stand for “beginning.”) It’s not long now! The harvest is coming! “‘So get to work, all you people!’ – God is speaking. ‘Yes, get to work! For I am with you.’” (Haggai 2:4 – MSG) Prepare for the harvest! Call the storehouse builders to begin to build! Build, and it will be filled! Launch the laborers and pray for harvest hands!

“What a huge harvest! And how few the HARVEST HANDS. So on your knees; ask the God of the Harvest to send harvest hands.” (Luke 10:2 – MSG)

Until now, “You have planted much, but harvested little…” (Haggai 1:6 – AMP) But now we are entering the DUE season! (Year 5781…8+1=9) It’s in the 9th month that a baby is born. It’s the DUE date, and you will receive what is DUE to you because it’s DUE time!

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in DUE season we will reap, if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9 – ESV)

“And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the SEASON OF REAPING the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming!” (Galatians 6:9 – TPT)

“You shall eat the fruit of the LABOR OF YOUR HANDS; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.” (Psalm 128:2 – ESV) (The Hebrew word for “hands” in this verse is also “kaf.”)

“But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” (2 Chronicles 15:7 – NIV)

It will be a LABOR-INTENSIVE time, but if you stand strong and do not give up, you will be rewarded. You will reap a harvest, and you will eat the fruit of your labor.

“‘Be strong, all you people of the land,’ declares the Lord, ‘and work. For I am with you,’ declares the Lord Almighty.” (Haggai 2:4 – NIV)

“START THE WORK and don’t let anything stop you. The Lord God, whom I serve, will be with you.” (1 Chronicles 28:20 – GNT)
