Athough I would counsel strongly against deliberately looking for signs in things - which is a form of divination - I do find it interesting how Yahweh can bring together unmistakable signs by using things in the environment to spell out a message for those who are earnestly seeking for answers.
A brother in Germany found himself in a difficult situation. He had unwisely - in a weak moment - accepted a Christmas invitation from his family some weeks before and didn't know how to get out of his predicament. So he prayed for a clear revelation as to what he should do and in answer to his prayer Yahweh showed him a car number or licence plate which read LEV-FB 420. Remembering that Lev is my Hebrew name, he asked me if this could mean anything.
I at once knew what Yahweh was saying, FB meaning 'Firsborn' (that is, those who follow the way of Ephraim, which we discussed two days ago in our devotionals), and that the number pointed to a revelation in our collection of Ephraimite prophecies, the Olive Branch:
In other words, by adhering to the commandment to abstain from pagan celebrations and telling his family that he will be excusing himself, he will be asserting the true Order of Heaven and will be blessed even though the reaction of his family may be hostile.
"This is a lesson which should be learned by all New Covenant Christians: Asserting the true order of heaven in firmness and loving kindness always meets the with the blessing of Yahweh even if at first the very opposite seems to be the result on earth" (OB 420)
As we learn to stand up for the truth with firmness and loving kindness we will receive heavenly approbation and grow in spiritual stature. Getting used to the hostility of the world is a part of our character development in Christ.
I hope that you too will choose to do the right thing as Nimrod's birthday approaches in three days' time. Be blessed in Yah'shua!
