Welcome to the eleventh month of the year. The eleventh month is the 30-day season following the tenth month. In the Gregorian calendar, this is the month of November. In the Hebrew calendar, the eleventh month is the 30-day month of Shivat (Shebat) that runs between January and February. The Hebrew month that corresponds to the Nations, states, organizations, families, and individuals are to count their eleventh months from the day of their birth. All eleventh months have common characteristics. Biblical patterns for understanding the eleventh month are the fourth day of creation narrative, the 11th book and chapters of the Bible, and Bible passages mentioning the 11th month.
A, The eleventh month is a fourth day of creation season. This is so because the 11th is the fourth in the second-seven. God made the luminaries on the fourth day of creation. The fourth in every seven seasons is a fourth day of creation season. The eleventh month is the month of lights and illumination. It is a month to walk in wisdom, discretion, and discernment. It is a month of wealth. It is a month to prioritize relationships.
B. The eleventh month is a Book of First Kings season. The book of First Kings is the eleventh book of the Bible and is applicable to the eleventh month of the year. Solomon became king in the eleventh book of the Bible. God gave him wisdom and wealth and he added women. The building of the temple is recorded in the eleventh book of the Bible. The eleventh season is building – season. It is important to pray against forces that resist or oppose building. Israel experienced political and spiritual turbulence in the eleventh book of the Bible. The kingdom divided under the fourth king, Rehoboam. The Northern Kingdom, under Jeroboam, became officially idolatrous; and worsened under Ahab and Jezebel.. God began to raise prophets of confrontation like Ahijah the Shilonite, the man of God from Judah, and Elijah the Tishbite, to bring rebuke and correction. Amid the blessings of the month, you must watch against temptations to drift from purpose and principles. The eleventh chapters of the Bible indicate that the eleventh season is a season of temptations. Consider the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11, the sins of David in Second Samuel 11, the failure of Solomon in First Kings 11, the fall of Athaliah in Second Kings 11, the weariness of John the Baptist in Matthew 11, or the Great Schism of the 11th century. The 11th season is a season of great falls. The Al-Qaeda leader, Osama Bin Laden, and the strong man of Libya, Muammar Ghadaffi, were both killed in 2011. In the eleventh season, the strong may be weak, and the wise may act foolishly. Be watchful.
C. The eleventh month is a season expressing the Book of Acts 13-28, Romans, First Corinthians, Second Corinthians, and Galatians. Why is it so? The eleventh month comprises the 44th week (4 days), the 45th week, the 46th week, the 47th week, and five days in the 48th week of the year. The 44th week is a Book of Acts week. Acts is the 44th book of the Bible. The 45th week is a book of Romans week because Romans is the 45th book of the Bible. The 46th week is a book of First Corinthians week. The book of First Corinthians is the 46th book of the Bible. The 47th week is a book of Second Corinthians week. The 47th book of the Bible is Second Corinthians. The 48th week is a book of Galatians week. Galatians is the 48th book of the Bible. Going through the eleventh month is like journeying from Acts 13 to Galatians 5. The eleventh month has Biblical patterns in the Pauline side of the New Testament. November is a month of new realms and levels. November is for novelties! It is a season to invade and conquer kingdoms and territories with light as Paul did. It is season to enjoy grace and freedom from yokes and burdens
As an Acts 13-28 season, the first four days of November is a time to cross borders and venture into the deep with the assignment of the year; as Paul and his associates did so with the gospel. It is the time to take yourself and your work to another level. The missionary journeys of Paul began here. This is where Saul of Tarsus (Hebrew identity) ended and Paul (Greco-Roman identity) began. Not much is said about Peter and the other apostles from this point. The missionary journeys Paul and his team undertook in Acts 13-28 formed the foundation for all his epistles – which is about half the New Testament. So, what you do within the first four days of the eleventh month can impact, significantly, the rest of the year.
As a book of Romans season, November 5 – 11 is a season of revelations of hidden people and things. As a book of First Corinthians season, November 12-18 is a time walk in love and prioritize relationships. In this season, how much you care is greater than how much you know. As a book of Second Corinthians season, November 19 – 25 is a season the walk by faith and not by sight. It is a season to put the spiritual above the carnal and the material, and the invisible realities above appearance. As a book of Galatians season, November 26-30 (48th week) is a season to watch against negative reversions in your life. In the 48th book of the Bible,, Paul’s disciples reverted from faith to works. He wrote this book to push them back into faith. This is the season to revel in the sovereign grace of God. As the month ends, people tend to receive, by the sovereign grace of God, more than they deceive.
Going through the eleventh month is also like taking a prophetic journey from the 44th to the 48th chapters of Genesis, Psalms, Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel. In Genesis 44-48, Joseph reunites with Benjamin his brother, introduced himself to his brothers, brings his family to Egypt for resettlement and Jacob blessed Joseph and his son’s. November is a season to cross borders in experience. It is a season to break new grounds and move into new realms.
D. Bible passages that mention ‘the eleventh month
The Bible reveals one thing about the eleventh month:
IT IS A SEASON TO RECEIVE AND DECLARE THE WORD OF THE LORD
Deuteronomy 1:3: Now it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spoke to the children of Israel according to all that the LORD had given him as commandments to them,
Zechariah 1:7-17: On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Shebat, in the second year of Darius, the word of the LORD came to Zechariah the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet:  I saw by night, and behold, a man riding on a red horse, and it stood among the myrtle trees in the hollow; and behind him were horses: red, sorrel, and white.  Then I said, “My lord, what are these?” So the angel who talked with me said to me, “I will show you what they are.”  And the man who stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, “These are the ones whom the LORD has sent to walk to and fro throughout the earth.”  So they answered the Angel of the LORD, who stood among the myrtle trees, and said, “We have walked to and fro throughout the earth, and behold, all the earth is resting quietly.”  Then the Angel of the LORD answered and said, “O LORD of hosts, how long will You not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which You were angry these seventy years?”  And the LORD answered the angel who talked to me, with good and comforting words.  So the angel who spoke with me said to me, “Proclaim, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts: “I am zealous for Jerusalem And for Zion with great zeal.  I am exceedingly angry with the nations at ease; For I was a little angry, And they helped-but with evil intent.”  ‘Therefore thus says the LORD: “I am returning to Jerusalem with mercy; My house shall be built in it,” says the LORD of hosts, “And a surveyor’s line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem.”‘  “Again proclaim, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts: “My cities shall again spread out through prosperity; The LORD will again comfort Zion, And will again choose Jerusalem.”‘”
The eleventh month is a season of prophetic revelations and declarations. It is a season to declare what God had said to those have ears to hear.
1. O Lord, deliver me from the deceptive moves of the adversary around me in this season.
2. O Lord, help me to treasure and keep the relationships you have given me in this season.
3. O Lord help me to stay humble and receive those you might send my way to bring correction into my life.
4. O Lord enable me to begin and complete the tasks of this season as Solomon completed the building of the temple in the eleventh book of the Bible. Deliver me from temptations to quit as Elijah wanted to quit the prophetic ministry in the 11th book of the Bible.
5. O Lord, guide me to cross borders, break new grounds and enter into new realms ordained for this season. Give me strength for the tasks of this month.
Happy 11th month of the year!
