Minister Eugenie Doualla, Contributing Writer – The meaning of the number FIFTEEN in the Bible: 3 x 5; 5 = Grace and 3 = Divine Perfection of the Godhead. This number symbolizes acts wrought by the energy of Divine grace.
- Fifteen is 7 + 8 = Covenant (7) and Resurrection (8); when JESUS manifests himself as GOD and defeated death and Satan (Resurrection was on Sunday, the 8th as well as the 1st day)
- Fifteen is a special mark of the energy of divine grace issuing in glory.
- The fifteenth day of the 1st month was designated the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which begins at sundown after the Passover sacrifice (sundown begins the next day for the Israelites). It is the day of the Last Supper [Leviticus 23:6].
- The fifteenth day of the 7th month is the beginning of the final feast of the liturgical year, the Feast of Tabernacles. [Leviticus 23:34].
We are in the season of special glory, regardless how long you have been waiting, one touch of the Master can change everything in a day, an hour, a minute or second. What a great GOD we serve! We are accustomed to thinking that being successful is having a good career, living in the house of our dreams, having a luxury vehicle, good savings account, major credit cards with a large limit, etc. What about reaching our destiny we have in GOD? Run the race and finish it. Matthew 22:14 reads, “Many are called, but few are chosen.” It is time to run for our destiny. Each of us has a divine purpose (the spiritual gift) on this earth with our name on it before we meet JESUS face to face.
It means what GOD called upon you can only be fulfilled by you, as incredible as it could sound. How can we find our spiritual gift? Some of us have to go through some Bible classes to discover it, for some it is a strong desire that we have carried for so long; for others it is a vision or simply a thought placed inside of us that we know. It doesn’t mean that we all have to exercise our gift as pastors or ministers inside a church, or as an evangelist. Our LORD needs HIS children everywhere: church, the workplace, in politics and around friends, government and communities, etc.
The very first place we should start is in our families, with our children and spouse by applying the word of GOD in our lives. We know we are operating in our gift when each time we do something, the satisfaction is priceless. It is something we can do so easily without feeling any weight and without being motivated by compensation.
“Heavenly Father, I ask you in the name of JESUS CHRIST to release your children from anything that hinders them from reaching their destiny. Father, give them the heart to seek first your kingdom so everything will be added to them. Father, give them the boldness and assurance like kings and queens so they can step out to their calling with power and authority, amen.”
