For the last week, the Holy Spirit has been reminding me of a post concerning Tel Aviv being struck, and when I looked it up, I was amazed because I posted it on 11th May 2018, EXACTLY 3 years before Tel Aviv was struck. Islamic Jihad and Hamas launched 130 rockets at Tel Aviv on 11th May 2021. I feel strongly I need to bring your attention to what the Lord said at that time and when I looked up the original post, I discovered I had actually posted another word in September 2018 concerning the ripe barley firstfruits company and its connection to Tel Aviv. You can find the two posts at the following links:
This post is a vision I had of many many coffins in Israel. It is important to refresh your memory about what the Spirit said at that time because the fulfilment of this word has begun!
This post is about the connection of the spiritual Tel Aviv to the Natural one. Take note also that just as the natural Tel Aviv is under attack, so too is the ripe Barley Remnant being bombarded with a volley of attacks by the enemy. Pray for one another. God is your strength and your shield! Just as the natural Tel Aviv represents the head, so too there is a barrage of attack on the minds of the Firstfruits Company. Pull down vain imaginations, take every thought captive in obedience to Christ and worship as much as you can!
and I have made a podcast of the relevant portions of the two posts for the barley remnant:
Please pray for the Bridal Company in Israel and for people's hearts to be opened to their Messiah throughout this traumatic time. The time of Jacob's Trouble has begun.
For those who don't have time to read the whole linked posts, some of the relevant portion is posted below:
‘The Spirit also spoke the word “Tel Aviv” that night. Aviv is the state of barley which is ready for the first fruits offering, first-ripe ears of barley. He continued, “I have my own Tel Aviv, my own hill of first-ripe barley. I have my first-fruits company, My wave offering. They stand head and shoulders above the rest in terms of readiness for reaping for they have yielded to the ministrations of My wind and My rain and they have soaked in the light of the Sun of Righteousness. These are the ones that are My jewels. No leaven is in them. I will gather them by My own hand and wave them as a trophy and an offering before My Father. They are the first of the fruit of the travail of My soul and because of these, I rest satisfied. These are the seed which I will sow; these are those which shall become unleavened bread to the eater.” I asked Him, “Is this the seed that grew to make the bright green field in the vision?” YES!
I had previously had a dream in May 2018, where the Lord had said He was going to strike Tel Aviv and I asked, “How does this connect to Your spiritual Tel Aviv?”
He answered, “I will strike the natural Tel Aviv and I will reap the spiritual Tel Aviv. Remember when My spirit left the temple and resided on the mount of Olives for 3&1/2 years, saying ‘return to Me’ and then it lifted and the temple was destroyed?” “Yes, Lord,” I answered. Well, so it shall be with my firstfruits company, who reside on the Mount of Olives. They have been in the place of perpetual pressing and my Spirit comes to clothe them anew and abide strong within them. They are the voice that shall cry these 3&1/2 years for My people to return to Me and then I will bring them home. I release a baptism of fire upon them and announce that a new day has come, the Day of the Lord. Dense darkness is even now settling upon the earth and soon no-one will be able to see their hand in front of their face. It is a 3 day darkness, a 3 watches of the dark night, when the enemy thinks he has the upper hand, but I will wake and I will shake and I will sound and resound through my fiery torch company. My roar shall be heard in them and My roar opens prison doors and blind eyes and many shall be released from the prisons of their own understanding.”
I asked Him, “Lord, will the striking of the natural Tel Aviv and the reaping of the spiritual one be the same time. How will we know?” He said, ”First the natural, then the spiritual. That is My pattern and that is My mercy. I will strike the head to turn the heart. I will reap my firstfruits barley company to turn the heart of the rest of the harvest”.
Why is the Lord using the name Tel Aviv to describe His remnant? The first part of Tel Aviv is the noun תל (tel), which denotes the kind of ruinous mount that arises from multiple destructions and subsequent coverings over and rebuilding of the destroyed site. Beloved, does this describe your life? The pain, destruction and having to start all over again on the ruins and efforts of previous generations. Well, you are a ‘tel’ and the Word promises that you will raise up the devastations of many generations.
The second part of the name Tel aviv comes from the noun אביב (‘abib) meaning barley or ears of barley. In fact, you are a tel aviv, ripe and eady for harvest.
Barley is harvested at Passover. The First Fruits wave offering on the first day after the weekly Sabbath during the Feast of Unleavened Bread requires the barley to be ‘aviv’, which is a Hebrew term referring to a level of maturity of the barley harvest. Aviv barley is the stage 2 weeks before picking. To test if the barley is aviv, take barley is put in the fire, and when the flames singe that barley, if the barley is not aviv, all of the seed heads will just be vaporized – there will be nothing left. But, if you put it in the fire and then it leeches out all of the moisture and you can actually take that grain and grind it, then the barley is ‘aviv’. What an amazing prophetic picture. Beloved, you are ready to be part of the firstfruits barley offering when the fire no longer diminishes or harms you but only has the effect of hardening you to difficulties and preparing you to be a part of the firstfruits wave offering – and to become food for the eater!’
