Judah, Issachar and Zebulun Anointings
We are going to have three specific anointings (Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun) to prepare us for the Lord’s visitation. Preceding the coming of the ark, the Lord is going to release the standard of Judah, the lion-like nature of God, the understanding of times and seasons of Issachar, and the blessings of understanding God’s dwelling place of Zebulun. Then will come the ark of the covenant, the presence of God landing in whatever form that God wants that to look like.
The Judah Anointing
The spirit of Judah is like that prevailing spirit of a young lion. Lions who have no fear. They are the king of the beasts. The Judah anointing is a ruling anointing that operates with great authority. Now the sons of Israel arose, went up to Bethel, and inquired of God and said, “Who shall go up first for us to battle?” Then the LORD said, “Judah shall go up first.” - Judges 20:18
The cloud is moving and those who are provoked, those who are moved, those who are stirred; I am going to give them something they need for this coming season in history. I am going to give them my lion-like nature, the lion-like nature of God, to deal with the anxiety and fear among My people.
When Judah went behind the cloud, the lion-like nature of God went behind the cloud. It is what was given to those in Hebrews Chapter 11. It is imparted by God. It is something we do not possess of ourselves.
God is sending the Judah anointing on his people to rid them of all fears, anxieties, and panic attacks. Fear opens the door for the enemy to come in. Fear can have no place with the people of God. Through this anointing, end-time believers will rise up in boldness to proclaim the good news without fear, just like the apostles in the book of Acts.
The Issachar Anointing
We see Issachar was the observant one, being watchful and attentive to his surroundings. He was aware and understood the events around him, he understood the times and the seasons. Perhaps that is why God chose him to follow Judah as the second tribe when Israel moved behind the cloud.
We need the Issachar anointing to know what God is doing in the earth and how we fit into that plan. Where are we in the Scriptures? What is being fulfilled in our day? I believe the Issachar anointing is essential.
When this outpouring comes we are not going to look back, we’re going to look ahead because what we establish here will take us right into the millennium. So we need the Issachar anointing so that we understand where we are in relation to where we are going.
This remnant of end-time believers will have their eyes opened to see the bigger picture of what God is doing in the earth, they will be illuminated with understanding. We have a plan, but God has a better plan. The Issachar anointing helps us to tap into Gods great plan.
The Zebulun Anointing
The Zebulun anointing helps to establish the revelation of Jesus Christ in the hearts of a remnant who will be part of Gods movement in this new season. All of creation is waiting and groaning for the revelation of the mature sons of God - Romans 8:19. These are those who have received revelation on how to access their inheritance, which has been stored up in heaven throughout the ages, but not released to the earth until now, due to a lack of revelation.
By this anointing, a remnant of God’s people is going to taste the good word of God and the powers of the age to come - Hebrews 6:5. These pioneers will cross over into the age to come and bring the powers of that age back into our day. Like the Israelites who were sent to spy out the promised land, these forerunners will venture over into the land of promise and bring back the fruit of that land and say, “Here it is! This is what we are after and it’s over there!”
They are going to contend for it. They are going to build for it. They are going to believe for it. They are going to move into it. They won’t have the fullness of it yet, but they will have a taste of it. A little taste of that realm can change a generation giving that ability to enter a whole new season.
Because of the Zebulun anointing, these forerunners are going to cause eternity to overshadow our realm. They’re going to experience things that we may never have dreamed about. They’re going to taste amazing things. The glory of this latter house will be greater than the former house.
Because of the revelation, out from Zebulun, will come those who will do warfare as a scribe. In other words, those who write for the Lord will release the needed revelation for today. Timely and seasonal revelation for his remnant as Gods presence begins to move forward.
All 3 Anointing’s Combined
Those who receive these anointings will not be limited to one, but will have all three. They will be well equipped to carry out their end-time assignments as they operate in the boldness of Judah, the awareness of Issachar, and the revelation of Zebulun. They will therefore be well-equipped to fulfill God’s purpose for their life.
Just as the tribes of Israel worked together to do the will of God, so will these three anointings work together to enable this remnant of believers to do the will of God. In Deuteronomy 33:18-19 we see the prophetic decree where both Zebulun and Issachar are calling people to the mountain of the Lord. There they will offer righteous sacrifices. They will draw out the abundance of the seas and the hidden treasures of the sand. The abundance of the seas and the hidden treasures are both spiritual and literal treasures. This is where the natural and the supernatural work together.
The following list shows lessons that the end-time church/ekklesia can learn from what God did with the Israelites.
1) Wait on the cloud to move first. Do not move ahead of the cloud and do not get left behind after the cloud has moved. When the cloud moves, — it is time to move.
2) Follow every detail of God’s instructions. God gave the Israelites different instructions for different situations, which included blowing the silver trumpets in some cases and sounding alarms in other cases - Numbers 10:1-10. Likewise, we must be careful to follow every detail of His instructions, which will be different for different situations.
3) Whenever Israel went into a battle or moved their camp, God instructed them to move in a specific order behind the cloud so that Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun always moved ahead of the tabernacle. In the same way, God is equipping the end-time church/ekklesia with three anointings that will precede His return to the earth. These anointings have the same character traits as the three tribes. They give us the antidote that enables us to overcome the spirits of hell that try to hinder us. By receiving these anointings and walking in them, our victory over the schemes of the enemy is assured. Then we will say as Moses said, “Rise up, Oh Lord! And let your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate you flee before You.” - Numbers 10:35.
4) Just as the presence of the Lord returned to the tabernacle after the Israelites moved, the end-time church/ekklesia will usher in the return of the Lord and the beginning of the millennial reign. As Moses said after the ark came to rest, “Oh Lord, turn back ten thousands of Israel's numbers.” - Numbers 10:36.
