Characteristic of KISLEV

30 or 29 days - November/December


Alphabet: SAMEKH - trust, support, coming full circle




Characteristics: This is a month to:

-  ask for rivers of life to flow


Kislev is the ninth of the twelve months of the Jewish calendar. It is associated with the letter SAMEKH, which pictures trust, support and coming full circle. By examining our hearts and motives during Kislev each year, we will break up and out of old patterns of mistrust that hinder our walk with the Lord and others in our circle of influence.


This month is associated with the tribe of Benjamin, the most gifted of the tribes with the art of the bow. As you develop your war strategies this month, you can tap in prophetically to gain revelation concerning the war season ahead. Benjamin was also the only child born in the land of promise, so this is a month to watch Israel. Things happen during this month, which change the course of Israel.


Review your support system through Kislev; including who is supporting you and who you are supporting. Consider who your friends and associates are and why you are connected with them.


This is the month of dreams and night visions. Through the years the Lord has been pouring things into you, then all of the sudden He draws them out through dreams. Sometimes that is the only way He can communicate with you. During this time, review your sleeping patterns so that you will be healthier in the year ahead.


This is the time to let the river of God flow from your innermost being. There is great relationship between tranquility and fullness. If we don't relate to our inner being correctly, we cannot enter into fullness.


Hanukkah begins this month. It is the only holiday that connects two months, beginning in the month of Kislev and concluding in the month of Tevet. The message of Hanukkah is that in the midst of destruction there is mercy. No matter what aspect of destruction you are dealing with - external, internal, physical or spiritual - God has a way to impart mercy to build the future. His grace is sufficient and His love is everlasting.
